If it is proven to be an attack and they find the country responsible and let's hope it is not us can you imagine what Obama is going to do? They say this guy is a push over but if they exposed this to our President and he then exposed his wife and kids... A family man with the most powerful military at his finger tips...

TSHTF.... I don't support Obama or his policies but I wouldn't blame Michelle one bit if she demanded as a$$ woop'in for those responsible...

Then again, maybe it was the CIA. Obama is opening up on those guys right now with all the torture talk... They whacked Kennedy, I wouldn't be surprised if they are trying to get to him. I'll bet those hearings die a quick death next week.

I don't have a link, but BBC news ticker is reporting that a flight steward on a Mexico City to Heathrow has been quarantined due to suspicious "flu like" symptoms.

On BBC right now.

Remember Biden, and the 'Manufactured Crisis'?

"It will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy. The world is looking. We're about to elect a brilliant 47-year-old senator president of the United States of America. Remember I said it standing here if you don't remember anything else I said. Watch, we're gonna have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy." -- Joe Biden

All we need is theme music.

I read 25-49yrs are the victims.

This is what I said. From 18 to 55... anyway, those with a strong immunosystem.

And for the Canada flights being cancelled... it's from people sending me tips...

The Philippines Department of Agriculture bans pigs and pig products from the United States and Mexico.

Mexican Health Minister confirms 44 new fatal swine influenza cases; total reaches 64.


Now more than 200... it was 75.


So no festival.. for now.

A seventh case of swine flu has been confirmed in California, according to the Reuters news agency.



Suspected swine influenza cases reported in Minnesota and Massachusetts.

What are the symptoms of swine flu in humans?
The symptoms of swine flu in people are expected to be similar to the symptoms of regular human seasonal influenza and include fever, lethargy, lack of appetite and coughing. Some people with swine flu also have reported runny nose, sore throat, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.

"Death toll from Mexican swine flu epidemic rises to 69, at least 1,200 people infected"

From Twitter 7 min. ago.

This is all OVER the wires!

This thread is welcome, but all rumors should separate from facts.

- It sure looks like that the big is about to happen... What have we waited here in ATS for a long time!

New swine flu likely widespread, experts say

WASHINGTON, April 25 (Reuters) - A new and unusual strain of swine flu is likely widespread and impossible to contain at this point, experts agree.

The H1N1 strain has killed at least 20 people and possibly 48 more in Mexico and has been confirmed in at least eight people in the United States, all of whom had mild illness.

Well, I suspect that they think they can push Obama but I highly doubt Michelle will just sit around and let her husband make all the decisions on this one.

When it comes to protecting kids Mothers are like a pit bull with a steak and this mother has the ear of the guy with his finger on all the buttons... More than that though, Michelle is someone with the demeanor at least in my opinion that won't take crap from anyone and that includes her Husband...

I don't like this guy or his policies but if you attack him like this all bets are off. You can't attack an American President and really expect to get away with it can you? That is unless you are the CIA...

Then again, it could all be a generated crisis to draw attention from what they are doing behind closed doors next week? Man I am a cynical guy with too many questions...

However, it is not the virus that is directly causing the damage to the lungs - it is the body's own response to infection.

And all the deaths so far are young (17-18) and strong (up to 45-55)... those who have a strong immuno system are the most at risk... like the spanish flu.

Well then I guess it's time for all of us to get HIV to weaken to 'ol immune system

Does this flu kill birds and house pets?

There were two deceased adult brown thrashers in a parking lot next to a mall in my city. There were some kids playing with the bodies too, I had to call them in for a quick germ X meeting.

I'm in Georgia btw.

MSNBC reports flu in Kansas, NYC also

Yeah, I just thought of something...

In the end, it's not the virus that kills you but your immunosystem... Let the virus desactivate, then fry the immunosystem with radiation... problem solved.

Nicaraguan government restricts importation of pig and pig products from Mexico due to swine influenza.

And for info, a pandemic means a 33% rate of infection. If you apply the death rate of let's say 16%, that means 16 millions dead in the US, 27.4 million in Europe. The avian flu has a projected 62% death rate... I let you do the math.

posted this in another thread as IS important to separate the facts from rumors..

Yahoo news is reporting, from a news conference, that the NYC cases are so far HUMAN flu virus. In any case, they all doing okay and none of them are hospitalized.

yahoo news video

Remember that anyone with flu symptoms, or that even think they have flu symptoms are going to go to the ER, call 911 ect.. (i know, I REALLY don't want to go to work on Tuesday as a medic). Every little illness is going to be reported as this possible flu...that doesn't mean not to be careful...I'm just saying be careful and don't panic...yet lol

Were we listening to two different news conferences? The one in the link you provided said they were "confirming 8 of the 9 as probable human swine influenza..."

All it would take would be an Easter Egg sitting inside some building's Airduct and "popped" so you get maximum exposure. Put it inside an airport, train station, what have you, and there is your bio weapon. I think this could be a biowep seeing as how readily available the Influenza virus is and the fact that the U.S. has a large list of people who want to do us harm. Heck we probably schooled the guy who made this strain.

Who could be behind this?

Us, them, doesnt matter when you have to protect yourself and your family. Definitely stinks to me of a manufactured virus seeing as how the CDC and WHO are saying this is such a rare strain. Population control? Destablization of Mexico so the US can step in and "provide" military assistance? NWO taking the US out of the equation of global currency? Well whatever is the reason, I think everybody should get prepped and ready for their own survival. I have two boys 3 and 10 and this makes me nervous already.

I just got over a bad flu and it seems they change every year, the bug "feels" different every year. Give this thing a week and see where it could go either way.

you are correct.. I apologize..he does say 'probable human swine influenza'; I was reading/hearing this to mean it was not the swine/pig/avian influenza of Mexico and CA...but it could very well be. I think only the CDC will be able to tell us if it is genetically the same as the one in those places.

On the other hand..they ARE all fine, and none of them are hospitalized...yet lol

Thank you for clearing that up for me

oh really. Another awe inspiring event of fear and intimidation. And what will ordinary Americans do? They will go to the stores, in a panic mode, and buy all the crap they will need for the next month. And what will this do? This will raise the retail numbers for April. So in May, when the wonderful market casino reports the May numbers....they will be astounded. The market will continue to rally like no tomorrow.

I'm not buying any of this BS yet. I can see most of you guys already have your guns out of the holster.

The stock market is a great teacher. The first move is always a headfake when trying to determine a trend change.

So be it. You guys continue to go nuts on this, since that's what they want you to do. You are playing right into their hands on this one.

And NO...I'm not taking any government sponsored vaccine. And i would recommend you think twice about it also.

Good luck in the bunker.

For those who think it's not infecting the young. I heard it infected two high school kids in Texas. The newest third case in Texas is of a 10 year old. So I guess its now 10-49. This strain will mutate like crazy.

I think contrary. People will be staying indoors, businesses closed, economy stifled even more. "IF" this blows to panic mode.

Where did we say that we would take vaccines? I won't for sure. The HPV vaccines and Baxter's BS... no thank you.

And vaccines given by the Bilderberg group... and the government who tortures people and is in eugenics... no thank you.

No we said it would not KILL the young. Because it's the immunosystem who kills you, not the virus.
