We're following the Mexican outbreak of swine flu very closely. There are a number of well-written articles linked to Rense.com, and a 24 April Jeff Rense interview with Dr Bill Deagle is here. For an big picture overview, we have already discussed the threat here (originally drafted in January 2008) in our major summary article 2009: A Tale of Two Timelines. Many readers will be aware of the whistleblowing report by 'Mary' about apparent preparations by the Department of Homeland Security for a pandemic - reported in a phone-in to The Power Hour on 30 March. If you have not listened to this, we strongly recommend that you do. We have received indirect confirmation from someone in direct touch with 'Mary' that this whistleblower appears to be genuine. We welcome hearing from her if she would like to contact us in full confidence. Click here for the YouTube video (audio only with images). Click here for the extracted MP3.

After several attempts, I extracted a PDF. Click here, read, archive, and share this article.) Click here and here for Dr Rima Laibow's report on the Swine Flu outbreak. Note also that after in-depth conversation in a number of meetings and phone conversations with insider Jake Simpson, we reported the following in January: More immediate, said Jake, was the threat of the deliberate release of viruses... This would trigger worldwide infrastructure breakdown, cause chaos, and make populations easier to control. Jake predicted that it was quite possible that sometime before the end of 2009 - or possibly early 2010 - there would be a sudden and rapid escalation of international reported outbreaks of extremely dangerous viruses (whether manmade or otherwise). He emphasized that announcements of a global pandemic could suddenly emerge from nowhere "within hours", and that it would be smart to be prepared: he stressed that some countries could quickly become quarantined, or choose to quarantine themselves, with major implications for international travel and port or airport controls.
