S & F what a great post , OP

I don't know what to think anymore. How can any of us? The one thing I think we can all agree on is the Scout's motto: "Be prepared". I am actually going to Basic Military Training in August for the Air Force. I'm not so sure now. I know they give you at least 4 or 5 shots and if one of them happens to be any vaccine or anything related to this H1N1 flu, I'm refusing. It will obviously have repercussions, but honestly I don't care.

Someone in an earlier post said something about how this monetary thing is coming to an end. Not to sound sadistic or anything, but I'd rather everything in this country go straight to hell, and have this whole plan backfire on the pharmaceutical companies and the government. Let it get REALLY out of hand because I'd rather that happen then have millions of "uneducated" and unknowing Americans, become slaves to our country's leaders.

How many people in this country actually care about this? Really? Besides us members on ATS? All they care about is when's the next party, what cool new cell phone can they get tomorrow, etc etc... This world/country has become so materialistic it's ridiculous. We're all guilty (some more than others obviously) but I think this decade is long overdue for something really dramatic to happen. I went to my local Walgreene's today to get some masks for painting (maybe 1 of 2 for this H1N1 virus
) but they were all sold out. They have been for the entire week and won't get anymore until the following week. I live in a county in Virginia where there aren't even ANY reported cases of this new flu virus.

Sorry about the rant, but in all actuality, what can we honestly know is fact? I'm not saying the OP's post is not valid, it's just, I guess we'll have to wait and see how the story unfolds.

edit: for spelling

I do not envy you going into boot camp at this day & age.

BUT, while you are going, and considering your comments above which I wholeheartidly support, feel the water in USAF and see if there is support.

Your thoughts match mine.

@all thanks for proving there is life@ATS after all.

The normal flu season is from October to May, roughly.

That is 7 months. Or only four to five months in half the country.

In that time, 36,000 people die. 200,000 people are hospitalized.

And this happens every single year.

So no matter how much you try to crunch the numbers, it is still much ado about nothing.

Swine Flu - Bioshield 2 connection

Indisputable facts first:

Legislation: The Biodefense and Pandemic Vaccine and Drug Development Act of 2005 (S. 1873), nicknamed "Bioshield Two"

Sponsor: Senator Richard Burr (R-North Carolina)

Purpose: Aims to shortcut safety testing for new vaccines and drugs in case of a pandemic, and to protect vaccine makers and the pharmaceutical industry from legal liability for vaccine injuries.

Pertinent News:

In the fall of 2008, in response to problems with the U.S. financial system, Burr said that he had done the following:

“On Friday night, I called my wife and I said, ‘Brooke, I am not coming home this weekend. I will call you on Monday. Tonight, I want you to go to the ATM machine, and I want you to draw out everything it will let you take. And I want you to tomorrow, and I want you to go Sunday.’ I was convinced on Friday night that if you put a plastic card in an ATM machine the last thing you were going to get was cash.”

These remarks attracted considerable attention from the national press when an April 2009 story in the News and Observer made it more widely known.

April 14, 2009 - The News & Observer - Sen. Burr speaks on economy

Begin Narrative.

Key Player: Senator Richard Burr (R-North Carolina)

Richard Burr's comments from April 14 describe the US as having been in a depression for some time and seems to point the finger at the federal government for not purchasing those toxic assets.

Motive: Unknown presently

Speculation: Questions to be answered:

Burr's comments: intentional or slip-up?

Burr's comments: on-the-money, corrupt, irresponsible, panic-worthy or critically diversion worthy?

Could the possibility of a widespread run on banks provide impetus for members of federal government in allegiance with lobbying member banks of the federal reserve to have the "offending party" (Burr) who just 2 weeks ago boldly spoke the unspeakable D-word abuse legislation as another hopelessly forcible means of temporary banker bail-out / prop-up ? Or is Burr just a scape-goat? The talk of a Flu Bailout rings very loud when I read the source article.

Thank you OP, I hope this connection gets investigated.

Howdy again folks. I've seen this thread in the Top Topics sidebar, but there is a problem.

ATS may have been wittingly or unwittingly burying this thread all day today.

Check for Bioshield in the Recent Posts Section. Not there.

Now search "Bioshield" in ATS Search.

See that is says last post is February 5 (2-5) when it is (5-2) May 2. I have found no other thread with this "last post" date reversal in the search field. There may be more, but I'm new to ATS and it's peculiarities or censors. I wouldn't ask people to spread this around if it hadn't been invisible on the recent posts section all day despite being a hot topic.

So I've dugg this article under the following links:

July 21, 2004 - Senator Joe Lieberman News Release

The overall goal of BioShield and BioShield II combined is to energize a biodefense sector that will provide the medicines the nation needs.

By building a market for bioterrorism medical countermeasures, this law, like the Lieberman-Hatch legislation, will provide an incentive for companies to risk their capital in developing countermeasures critical to America’s homeland security.

"Now preparing for bioterrorism is good for business and good for our national security."

Also this morning, in comments to the Infectious Disease Society of America (IDSA), Lieberman emphasized the synergy between research on medicines for a bioterror attack and IDSA’s agenda of research on new antibiotics to counter antibiotic resistance. IDSA issued a major report today – Bad Bugs, No Drugs – that endorses the type of incentives that Senators Lieberman and Hatch have proposed.

Infections Disease Society of America Website
You should download the PDF from their site directly, but I also set up a PDFCast for thread readers.

The Working Group recommends the President’s request provide $870 million in no-year funding that was requested, but not yet funded, by the previous Administration in FY 2008 for expanding cell and egg-based vaccine capacity, purchasing antivirals for the federal stockpile, and accelerating research and development of rapid diagnostic tests that can be
used to enable doctors and field epidemiologists to quickly evaluate patients for influenza

So now that the economy has been given a kick in the crotch by viral fear, the anti-dote companies among others re-request the funds they wished had been given in 2008 under former President George W. Bush.

just a thought:
poor people do nothing / can do nothing against this first, minor outbreak.

(yes, minor. just think : every year, 2500 people die from normal flu. that's 7 people a day. no comparison with porkavianblahblablah flu.)

but rich people will have learned a lot from this "special flu".
for the next "real" pandemic, they'll be prepared.
massive deaths, but only in the lower layers.

only the smart / richest people will survive.

Star and Flag. Good digging. I have been swimming in other flu threads trying to seed a bit of rational thought. My radar is aimed at Gilead, Roche and Tamiflu. The world has an aging stock pile of Tamiflu with no new orders coming for more. Then with information leaking as to it's effectiveness Gilead, Roche along with their elite board members were seeing profits tapper off. What better way to resurrect sales, and while we are all hording Tamiflu they'll develop a vaccine just in time for flu season....a steady stream of revenue.

Dr. Robert "Bob" Kadlec (Robert P. Kadlec, MD, former Special Assistant to the President and Senior Director for Biodefense Policy, Homeland Security Council.) : transcribed from

(IDSA) TFAH_SwineFLu_042709.mp3

"To be very direct, the effect that the money was not included (in stimulus bill 2008) did not really impact the building a capacity for the vaccine manufacturers that have been recipients of funding in the previous two years to basically develop excess capacity. The money which is in the order of several hundred million dollars was REALLY for advanced development of new generation flu vaccines as well as antiviral drugs. So it did delay what I would say, maybe, moving forward on that front, but did not impact the capacity-building that was paid for already.

Just to highlight one thing though, and here's just a little nuance, that's maybe not a LITTLE nuance. When we were planning for the H5N1 potential pandemic, it was believed that you needed two immunizations of a pandemic flu strain to confer immunity. Given that H5N1 would be an entirely different virus that's circulating in the human population, since you would be starting from really having no basis for immunity in the human population whether it be the United States or the world. That may be a very different consideration for this particular virus, and it may be too early to say whether you would need one or two, but clearly I think, just highlight, there is much more that we need to glean from as to the particular virus we're confronting, this H1N1, uh swine flu virus, and how it relates to the innate human immunity that exists now and what would be necessary to confer enough immunity to protect the population."

Dr. Kadlec also claims swine flu nature's plan in this MP3 totally suspicious.

From a journal which has published Dr. Kadlec's opinions, Biosecurity and Bioterrorism.

Preserving Gains from Public Health Emergency Preparedness Cooperative Agreements
Jennifer B. Nuzzo, Michael Mair, Crystal Franco
Biosecurity and Bioterrorism: Biodefense Strategy, Practice, and Science. March 2009, 7(1): 35-36.

These and other important gains are threatened by the current trend to cut federal support for preparedness activities. As states continue to struggle financially, they will be less able to meet the increasing requirements of federal public health preparedness programs.

Congress and HHS should reverse the trend of cuts to funding of the Public Health Cooperative Agreements. A rollback of federal funding and declines in state budgets threaten to reverse critical improvements in state and local public health preparedness. Despite increases in federal requirements for emergency preparedness, annual federal grant support for preparedness planning has decreased significantly significantly since 2005. The Center for Biosecurity estimates that federal support for public health preparedness decreased by 20% between FY2005 and FY2008. At the same time, state and local governments are facing drastic shortfalls in their own budgets that will limit their ability to support preparedness programs. Following sizeable cuts in federal public health preparedness funds in 2006, states reported having to reduce staff time spent on preparedness and delay completion of preparedness plans and training staff. According to the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO), 27% of states have eliminated entire public health programs and a minimum of one-third of all states will lay off or cut staff in FY2009. These reductions in federal and state funding for public health emergency programs, combined with the overall economic downturn, jeopardize the many substantial and hard-won gains in readiness that the past 8 years of investment and planning have produced.

What is it they say about necessity?

I really love this country, I just do not love this country's leaders. That's why I want to serve, plus I'm eventually going to become a pilot (of an F-15 hopefully
) My friend who recently went in said they just "give you shots for the normal stuff; Tetnus and all that" He didn't really elaborate.

But, through investigation I found what shots they actually give you:

Air Force: Hepatitis A, Adenovirus Types 4 & 7, Measles, Mumps, and Rubella (MMR), Quadrivalent Meningococcal vaccine, and Polio.

On the website it states later on that immunizations like the Flu shot are only given during Flu season. It'll be interesting to see while I'm down there in August if they'll make me take a vaccine for the H1N1 (that is, if there is one by then).

Immunizations given to new recruits & officers

Edit: to apologize if I am getting off topic.

There's a problem with this theory.

Oseltamivir (TamiFlu) helps alleviate symptoms of the flu, it is not a vaccine. It can be taken when you have come in contact with an infected person and it will lessen the symptoms and that is it.

It cannot be taken to prevent catching the disease and, again, it is not a vaccine.

I don't see this as a problem with Truth4Hire's theory..It is based on exactly what the folks at the IDSA said they wanted to do, which was to complete filling their giant Tamiflu and Relenza stockpile...create SIMPLE vaccines using already available funding, dispence at a minimum 2 pandemic flu strains within 6 months, and to PUSH for extra funding for ADVANCED vaccines and antivirals, funding which was denied in the last part of the Bush administration.

The amount of money and manhours being spent says they are pretty sure this pandemic is on its way. How can they be so sure? A vaccine can't be developed until its known what strain or variation to make the vaccine for.

Speculation: How can they be so sure? Well having the virus gene sequence printed out isn't going to save you, but well, the CDC already sequenced the genes and made them public - open source. Since WHO/CDC seems to be doing most of the research here, perhaps there is the hole where a population reduction conspiracy might hide. However, I have no evidence of that. For the pessimistic who are worried this is ultimately going to be your demise, the main question is the origin. So far the main posited targets I've heard are Nature (kadlec & anderson cooper), big pharma, Israeli Mossad, Russia .

GenBank sequences from 2009 H1N1 influenza outbreak

Not to discount you population reduction folks, but the more you know - the less you fear.

Update: Drug Susceptibility of Swine-Origin Influenza A (H1N1) Viruses, April 2009

"To date, all tested viruses are resistant to amantadine and rimantadine but are susceptible to oseltamivir and zanamivir. The purpose of this report is to provide detailed information on the drug susceptibility of the newly detected S-OIVs, which will aid in making recommendations for treatment and prophylaxis for swine influenza A (H1N1) infection."

Now if you're following me and opened the CDC Drug Succeptibility update, scroll down to the table at the bottom. It seems that at the moment the virus is sensitive to tamiflu despite the CONTROL flu being resistant to tamiflu. So I guess that's where they have a little room to say maybe pandemic potential? It could very well recombine with common flu becoming tamiflu resistant, but is that anything to fear? It seems it would be a fear for the manufacturer of Tamiflu who is desperately trying to get their initially denied request for the government to increase tamiflu stockpiles. Listen to Kadlec: he doesnt use the word denied in reference to reduced funding...he uses the word "delayed".

There's no doubt that exposing a virus population to an anti-viral create an overriding "fitness function" in terms of genetic algorithms. But I'm no biologist, so Question to an expert: Would Tamiflu resistance confer Relenza resistance or increase virulence?

In my opinion the fluoride conspiracy is far more important than this pandemic flu hysteria. The fluoride research has proven reduced IQ in human studies in China and doctors who say fluoride doesn't absorb through the skin are admitting they know nothing about the history of fluoride: it was initially given to sufferers of hypothyroidism in the 1930's in the form of a packet of fluoride powder, not to be placed in their drinking water, but in their hot bath water. The research in the past few decades denying and discounting need for research into effects on brain and thyroid - that's the big criminality right there. Because technology has made accurate research faster and cheaper, a critically large number of people know that they've been lied to systematically.

I'm not suggesting a direct connection, but I am- the connection is that flu origin investigation might prove futile - fluoride toxicity science is robustly proven already - and its the WHO, CDC, specifically the NRC passively concealing their history as a department of the Army and many other bureaucracies who were complicit in the fluoride conspiracy. The jig is up and fear is the first weapon these guys pick up.

WHO: Questions and Answers related to Vaccines for the new Influenza A (H1N1) [ NzUzJmVtYWlsaWQ9bGFAc25vd2NyZXN0Lm5ldCZ1c2VyaWQ9bGFAc25vd2NyZXN0Lm5ldCZleHRyYT0mJiY=&&&100&&& questions/vaccine_preparedness/en/index.html

From World Health Organization- May 2, 2009

Is an effective vaccine already available against the new Influenza A(H1N1) virus?

No, but work is already underway to develop such a vaccine. Influenza vaccines
generally contain a dead or weakened form of a circulating virus. The vaccine
prepares the body's immune system to defend against a true infection. For the
vaccine to protect as well as possible, the virus in it should match the circulating
"wild-type" virus relatively closely. Since this H1N1 virus is new, there is no
vaccine currently available made with this particular virus. Making a completely new
influenza vaccine can take five to six months.

What implications does the declaration of a pandemic have on influenza vaccine

Declaration by WHO of phase 6 of pandemic alert does not by itself automatically
translate into a request for vaccine manufacturers to immediately stop production of
seasonal influenza vaccine and to start production of a pandemic vaccine. Since
seasonal influenza can also cause severe disease, WHO will take several important
considerations such as the epidemiology and the severity of the disease when
deciding when to formally make recommendations on this matter. In the meantime, WHO
will continue to interact very closely with regulatory and other agencies and
influenza vaccine manufacturers.

How important will Influenza A(H1N1) vaccines be for reducing pandemic disease?

Vaccines are one of the most valuable ways to protect people during influenza
epidemics and pandemics. Other measures include anti-viral drugs, social distancing
and personal hygiene.

Will currently available seasonal vaccine confer protection against Influenza A(H1N1)?

The best scientific evidence available today is incomplete but suggests that
seasonal vaccines will confer little or no protection against Influenza A(H1N1).

What is WHO doing to facilitate production of Influenza A(H1N1) vaccines?

As soon as the first human cases of new Influenza A(H1N1) infection became known to
WHO, the WHO Collaborating Center in Atlanta (The Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention (CDC) in the United States of America) took immediate action and began
the work to develop candidate vaccine viruses. WHO also initiated consultations with
vaccine manufacturers worldwide to facilitate the availability of all necessary
material to start production of Influenza A(H1N1) vaccine. In parallel, WHO is
working with national regulatory authorities to ensure that the new Influenza
A(H1N1) vaccine will meet all safety criteria and be made available as soon as

Why is WHO not asking vaccine manufacturers to switch production from seasonal
vaccine to a Influenza A(H1N1) vaccine yet?

WHO has not recommended stopping production of seasonal influenza vaccine because
this seasonal influenza causes 3 million to 5 million cases of severe illness each
year, and kills from 250,000 to 500,000 people. Continued immunization against
seasonal influenza is therefore important. Moreover, stopping seasonal vaccine
production immediately would not allow a pandemic vaccine to be made quicker. At
this time, WHO is liaising closely with vaccine manufacturers so large-scale vaccine
production can start as soon as indicated.

Is it possible that manufacturers produce both seasonal and pandemic vaccines at the
same time?

There are several potential options which must be considered based on all available

What is the process for developing a pandemic vaccine? Has a vaccine strain been
identified, and if so by whom?

A vaccine for the Influenza A(H1N1) virus will be produced using licensed influenza
vaccine processes in which the vaccine viruses are grown either in eggs or cells.
Candidate vaccine strains have been identified and prepared by the WHO Collaborating
Center in Atlanta (The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in the
United States of America)1. These strains have now been received by the other WHO
Collaborating Centers which have also started preparation of vaccine candidate
viruses. Once developed, these strains will be distributed to all interested
manufacturers on request. Availability is anticipated by mid-May.

How quickly will Influenza A(H1N1) vaccines be available?

The first doses of Influenza A(H1N1) vaccine could be available in five to six
months from identification of the pandemic strain. The regulatory approval will be
conducted in parallel with the manufacturing process. Regulatory authorities have
put into place expedited processes that do not compromise on the quality and safety
of the vaccine. Delays in production could result from poor growth of the virus
strain used to make the vaccine.

How would manufacturers be selected?

There are currently more than a dozen vaccine manufacturers with licenses to produce
influenza vaccines. The vaccine strain will be available to each of them for vaccine

What is the global manufacturing capacity for a potential Influenza A(H1N1) pandemic

While this cannot be assessed precisely since there is much uncertainty regarding
the appropriate formulation for an effective and protective vaccine, a conservative
estimate of global capacity is at least 1 to 2 billion doses per year.

How is production capacity for influenza vaccines distributed geographically?

More that 90% of the global capacity today is located in Europe and in North
America. However, during the past five years, other regions have begun to acquire
the technology to produce influenza vaccines. Six manufacturers in developing
countries have done so with technical and financial support from WHO.

What will be the storage requirements for Influenza A(H1N1) vaccine?

The vaccine should be stored under refrigerated conditions at between 2 C and 8 C.

It has been impossible so far to develop vaccines for major killers such as HIV and
malaria. How sure are we that there will not be scientific or other hurdles in
developing an effective Influenza A(H1N1) vaccine?

Typically, development of influenza vaccines has not posed a problem. Influenza
vaccines have been used in humans for many years and are known to be immunogenic and
effective. Each year seasonal influenza vaccines with varying composition are
produced for the northern and southern hemisphere influenza seasons. Vaccine
manufacturers will employ a number of different technologies to develop their
vaccines. They will take advantage, notably, of novel approaches that were developed
over the past years for H5N1 avian influenza vaccines. One key unknown is yield of
vaccine virus production, since some strains grow better than others and the
behavior of the new Influenza A(H1N1) strain in manufacturers' systems is not yet
known. New recombinant technologies are under development, but have not yet been
approved for use.

Will Influenza A(H1N1) vaccines be effective in all population groups?

There are not data on this but there also is no reason to expect that they would
not, given current information.

Will the Influenza A(H1N1) vaccine be safe?

Licensed vaccines are held to a very high standard of safety. All possible
precautions will be taken to ensure safety and new Influenza A(H1N1) vaccines.

How can a repeat of the 1976 swine flu vaccine complications (Guillain-Barre
syndrome) experienced in the United States of America be avoided?

Guillain-Barre syndrome is an acute disorder of the nervous system. It is observed
following a variety of infections, including influenza. Studies suggest that regular
seasonal influenza vaccines could be associated with an increased risk of
Guillain-Barre syndrome on the order of one to two cases per million vaccinated
persons. During the 1976 influenza vaccination campaign, this risk increased to
around 10 cases per million vaccinated persons which led to the withdrawal of the

Pandemic vaccines will be manufactured according to established standards. However,
they are new products so there is an inherent risk that they will cause slightly
differently reactions in humans. Close monitoring and investigation of all serious
adverse events following administration of vaccine is essential. The systems for
monitoring safety are an integral part of the strategies for the implementation of
the new pandemic influenza vaccines. Quality control for the production of influenza
vaccines has improved substantially since the 1970s.

Will it be possible to deliver new Influenza A(H1N1) vaccine simultaneously with
other vaccines?

Inactivated influenza vaccine can be given at the same time as other injectable
vaccines, but the vaccines should be administered at different injection sites.

If the virus causes a mild pandemic in the warmer months and changes into something
much more severe in, say, 6 months, will vaccines being developed now be effective?

It is too early to be able to predict changes in the Influenza A(H1N1) virus as it
continues to circulate in humans or how similar a mutated virus might be to the
current virus. Careful surveillance for changes in the Influenza A(H1N1) virus is
ongoing. This close and constant monitoring will support a quick response should
important changes in the virus be detected.

Will there be enough Influenza A(H1N1) vaccine for everyone?

The estimated time to make enough vaccine to vaccinate the world's population
against pandemic influenza will not be known until vaccine manufacturers will have
been able to determine how much active ingredient (antigen) is needed to make one
dose of effective Influenza A(H1N1) vaccine.

In the past two years, influenza vaccine production capacity has increased sharply
due to expansion of production facilities as well as advances in research, including
the discovery and use of adjuvants. Adjuvants are substances added to a vaccine to
make it more effective, thus conserving the active ingredient (antigen).

What is WHO's perspective on fairness and equity for vaccine availability?

The WHO Director-General has called for international solidarity in the response to
the current situation. WHO regards the goal of ensuring fair and equitable access by
all countries to response measures to be among the highest priorities. WHO is
working very closely with partners including the vaccine manufacturing industry on

Who is likely to receive priority for vaccination with a future pandemic vaccine?

This decision is made by national authorities. As guidance, WHO will be tracking the
evolution of the pandemic in real-time and making its findings public. As
information becomes available, it may be possible to better define high-risk groups
and to target vaccination for those groups, thus ensuring that limited supplies are
used to greatest effect.

Will WHO be conducting mass Influenza A(H1N1) vaccination campaigns?

No. National authorities will implement vaccination campaigns according to their
national pandemic preparedness plans. WHO is exploring whether the vaccine can be
packaged, for example, in multi-dose vials, to facilitate the rapid and efficient
vaccination of large numbers of people.

Developing countries are very experienced in administering population-wide
vaccination campaigns during public health emergencies caused by infectious
diseases, including diseases like epidemic meningitis and yellow fever, as well as
for polio eradication and measles control programmes.

How feasible will it be to immunize large numbers of people in developing countries
against a pandemic virus?

Developing countries have considerable strategic and practical experience in
delivering vaccines in mass campaigns. The main issue is not feasibility, but how to
ensure timely access to adequate quantities of vaccine.

What is the estimated global number of doses of seasonal vaccine used annually?

The current annual demand is for less than 500 million doses per year.

Will seasonal influenza vaccine continue to be available?

At this time there is no recommendation to stop production of seasonal influenza

Good additional information posted, thanks.

You BETTER believe the information is correct and any sane individual can only come to the following conclusions:

- A lot of money is going to flow in the pockets of the Drugs Mafia
- A vaccine (which probably existed before the outbreak) will be forced
- Anything, ANYTHING can be put in this vaccine, from DNA altering chemicals to RFID tracking devices
- The manufactures are EXEMPT from prosecution under the Bioshield II act.
- What if a decision is made to simply poison certain groups? The CANNOT be held accountable for bad medicine under Bioshield II.
- Federal emergency can and likely will be declared when WHO alert hits 6.
- This could bring unrest and martial law, especially when there is massive rejection of the forced vaccinations.

This maybe the last big cash grab while the Dollar still exists

A/H1N1 was created in a laboratory. If you want to know which one I will tell you: The one that first comes forward with the "cure".

Educate others before it is too late
