Is it just me or is the〈=eng website down for everybody. It was fine this afternoon.

I cannot connect to the site.

Not only can I NOT connect, I tried google cache which SHOULD work
and it will not load there either .... THAT should work.

That is a VERY bad sign.

It looks like it might be due to them miss filing the website info.

I don't know about it being a 'VERY bad sign."

Could be their site is not set to handle a massive load of traffic is all.

google cache is hosted by google.

google can handle the traffic, I said it could be due to them
miss filing the site as the error says when you try to get to the site
via google cache.

April 25 (Bloomberg) -- At least eight students from a private school in New York are suspected to have swine flu, New York Health officials said today. About 200 children from the St. Francis Preparatory School in Queens were absent last week with flu-like symptoms, New York health commissioner Thomas Frieden said at a press conference today. Nine were tested for the swine flu strain, and none of the children have been hospitalized, he said.

Panic sex cancelled.

Cancelled?! You mean I got all gussied up in my good bathrobe for nothing?

When the WHO or the CDC starts referring to it as "Captain Trips" then we'll know we're in real trouble.

Taking lots of Vittie C here, wearing personal air purifier and staying indoors. Keeping the bathrobe on. Never know...might get lucky.

I think it is strange that none of the US cases are being reported as hospitalized.
I believe , from what I have read only one case required a brief hospital stay, however I would be comforted by some of these kids from New York classmates letting us know how their friends are doing.

Suddenly living in Southern California doesn't seem so nice

Those poor people...
Keep updating, I'm still looking for updates as well.

I find it very interesting that the major news stations view this as a non hot topic. No breaking news telling people to stay home, when to the sources in this site it appears to already be at allot of points in the US. So whats the deal? Keep everyone unaware till its to late? or to concerned about the economic impact of a false flag.

A few updates:

Mexico: Soldiers and Health Workers Guarding Airports and Bus Stations, Corralling Those Potentially Ill with Swine Influenza

New York: Two Manhattan families contact officials after developing influenza-like symptoms following travel to Mexico.

New York: Daycare under investigation for possible swine influenza cases after children fell ill.

Mexico: Officials extend school closures in Mexico City, Mexico State, and San Luis Potosí until 6 May.

The worst that could happen is a major panic move by the Mexico population. Mexico was already near collapse... this make it even worse.

Don't know if it's related to this, but my bro just called me from Boston (MA), he said they have all the trains near Boston University shut down and there are fire trucks and police all over the place near Boston University.

Weirdness, I'm not totally sure if it's related, but I thought I'd throw it out there to see if anyone knows anything about it.

And so it begins.

Now we know what all those FEMA coffin liners are for. Be careful, limit large public exposure and wear a mask if it hits your city.

This could just be a precurser for worse things to come. There is no way that swine flu/bird flu and regular airborn flu could be combined naturally, it is obvious it was weaponized and created to go airborn and kill. What better place than the highly populated Mexico city - America's China.

Flights in and out, immigrants, migrants visiting home and returning. If this wasn't preplanned, the border would be on lock down as well as the imports. This was an intentional release and they are doing it now because of the growing number of dissent and people talking about pitchforks and tea parties. They are getting scared of the mass public anger. They are trying to start the end - Eugenics are now about to go into full gear.

This is freaking me out - and we all knew in the back of our minds it was coming.

They could release other "worse" things in the middle of this crisis and keep local CDC's guessing and it would be too late.

Keep informed and your eyes open. This is nothing to fool with, especially if you have young ones in daycare and public school. Our kids have been coming home sick every three to four days with some kind of virus, so it will spread easily to families with children. This could spread like wildfire - just in time to make us forget about the coming socialism and financial collapse. When family and neighbors start dying around you - it kind of takes your mind off what is really going on around you.


"WHO guidance calls for isolating the sick and blanketing everyone around them with antiviral drugs such as Tamiflu." Yeah Right!!

"President Felipe Calderon issued an emergency decree on Saturday giving the government special powers to run tests on sick people and order them isolated to fight the deadly flu crisis."

I didnt know if i should link this here? I also started a separate thread here

This story is becoming very Surreal....
See you on the flipside, and don't take the shot....

Ugh... I have to give my response on this.

First of all, all the people saying "Millions are going to die!! All your family and loved ones will die slow, painful deaths at the hands of this disease!!!11!!1!!!"

They need to calm down and stop spreading fear.

Heres some things I would like to know about these 68 Mexican deaths:

1. Where these people lower class or poor?
2. Did they have any kind of healthcare?
3. Did they go to a doctor or just assume they had a cold or regular flu?
4. If they went to a doctor, were they misdiagnosed?
5. Where did these outbreaks and deaths occur? Poor/rural areas?

These factors have a HUGE weight on the statistics. Perhaps these people were in poor health to begin with. Mexico isn't a rich country. Their food and water sucks. Some rural areas are practically 3rd world.

8 people are 100% confirmed to have had this in the U.S. All 8 have already recovered.

I think the next few days will be the big decider. If all of a sudden thousands of Americans get sick, then we know it is spreading aggressively.

From what I have read, if you go to the doctor as soon as you get the symptoms and take some Tamiflu, you should be fine. Thats pretty much all they did for the 8 Americans.

Besides, 68 out of 1,000 people dying is 7%. Thats 7% percent in a country with horrible food/water/medicine and healthcare. Many of those may have not even gone to a doctor.

I'm not too worried. The only place I have to go here in PA is to my college classes for a few hours each day, and really no where else. Plus my classes end in 2 weeks.

I think we will be fine. Atleast based on current data. Try not to panic too much. Stress weakens the immune system and makes you more liable to get sick.

I'm not too worried. Although I did get stuck standing next to a Mexican family at Kmart today.

Oh well, they looked pretty healthy.

Yea, that's what I'm wondering.. the fear mongering that goes on on this site is ridiculous.. I share your thoughts.. at first I was getting a little freaked out, then I read some outside news sources and found that everyone who has had it here in the states has been fine and felt relieved... this site can really play on your fears if you let it...

Tamiflu, an antiviral used to treat the flu, doesn’t work against most of the virus circulating in the U.S. this season, federal officials say.

Tamiflu's effectiveness is highly questionable.

Tamiflu does nothing against Bird flu. This is part bird flu

I love how everyone is saying that this virus has to be man made, because nothing that complex could have been made by nature....

Is everyone forgetting things like: Humans, Pigs, Birds, Cats, Dogs, Fish, Fruits, Vegetables, AIDS, Herpes, Snails, Starfish?

These are all things that were created by nature... and to my knowledge, most of these made up of much more complex systems and needed no help from man or any other outside source. Never under-estimate what nature is capable of and keep calm.

Just take the normal cautions you would during the regular cold season. Take vitamins, exercise, wash your hands, eat healthy. There is no sense in getting panicky.

I live in anaheim, california, right by a fire station and I haven't heard the sirens at all today. My fiancee's step-father is also a police officer, so im sure if something big's going down we'll hear about it. If we hear that SHTF then I'll let everyone know before I head out, lol.

I don't know if anyone else is aware of this, but there is actually a contingency plan within Northern Command, CONPLAN 2591 NORTHCOM, which is designed to handle pandemic influenza.

I think a discussion has to be held here on how likely the possibility is that CONPLAN 2591 will be enacted. My guess it would have to be a major outbreak here in the United States for such a plan to be activated. Difficulty in discussing this is due to the fact there is no information availiable on the Internet that discusses what the plan entails.

Listening to Alex Jones' Special Swine Flu Broadcast tonight...

Caller from Mexico- 8 hours from Mexico City says that News Cast has said that they have a Vaccine for this flu. On Mexican Aztec TV, the President of Mexico is claiming that they have a vaccine ready for this flu to assure the people that "everything is fine".

They are quarantining the cities- although are denying it from American Public. Deaths are being reported by every state between Mexico City and the American Border.

Alex says- that is impossible unless this Flu was created by the Government- and Staged.

just wow
