How many people die worldwide each year as a result of flu? Thousands!!! Nary a word is said..


Um .. no.
They say that all the time.
They are trying to make people think this is no big deal.
When clearly the opposite is true.

35,000 people a year die from the regular seasonal flu.
But this is NOT like the regular seasonal flu. And there is no vaccination.
This is a swine/avian/human hybrid. It's behavior is very close to how
the 1918 flu, that killed 10s of millions, behaved.

It is SMART to be educated about what is happening.
And that includes not buying the MSM 'life as usual' propaganda.

Yes .. the CDC ... who has informed hospitals not to test people unless they are 'severe' cases. So obviously we aren't getting accurate numbers on how many people are infected. For instance .. they are saying that only one person in Madison County Alabama has Swine Flu ... but THIS is the email that went out to people in Madison Alabama from the schools ..


Dear Parents and Guardians,

Yesterday, I stated that you would not receive a list serve from me today unless conditions changed. I regret to inform you that conditions have changed for the worse. We learned today that we have probable cases now in West Madison, Madison, Horizon and Heritage Elementary Schools. In today's meeting at the Emergency Management Agency, the state and local public health officers determined that Madison City elementary schools (all of them to include Rainbow and Columbia) will be closed 14 days. This decision, made by the health officers, was in agreement with the Center for Disease Center's Interim Guidelines for K-12 School Dismissal. However, it was agreed that the situation for our elementary schools may be reassessed Saturday, May 9.

Dr. Williamson, the state public health officer, was a part of today's meeting by means of conference call. Tomorrow he will be in Madison County. At tomorrow's meeting, a determination of the open/close status for the secondary schools (Bob Jones, Discovery, and Liberty) will be made. At this time there are no confirmed probable cases involving secondary students. Lets hope that continues!

Recap:

1. All elementary schools (Columbia, Heritage, Horizon, Madison, Rainbow, West Madison) in the city of Madison are closed through May 13. They will reopen May 14.
2. The 14 day period will be reassessed Saturday, May 9. At that time it will be determined if we can open sooner.
3. Tomorrow, Sunday, May 3 health officials will make a determination on closing or opening our secondary schools.

I will get information out tomorrow as soon as I can.

DF

Dr. Dee O. Fowler
Superintendent of Education
Madison City Schools

Told you guys I thought AJ was wrong on this one. I do not believe this is being over hyped. If it was the death toll would be exagerated and its obviously being lied about. Heck one Dr from one Mexico hospital reported almost 50 dead by himself early on.


There's no need to take a jab at AJ to try to make yourself look brilliant. Jones never did make any declaration about the number of deaths, or the severity of this flu, nor the reality of it. He said numerous times himself "I don't know what's going on folks, but this is serious" and other statements along those lines. Never once did Jones make definitive statements because he admittedly didn't know for sure. At first Jones thought this was deadly serious. Then he had guests on who themselves flip-flopped during their one or two hours on his show. Nobody knew for sure. Info was coming out fast and furious and the only thing we know for certain about the info coming out of the MSM is that never once was it accurate or anywhere near accurate. So of course Jones didn't know for sure, and he said so.

Yes, one Dr. reported 50 dead. And do you know where he broke that news? On AJ's show. I heard it live, so get off Jones' case.

But I'll tell you one thing for sure, Jones was right that this is serious as hell. He's right about that because he knows that this is all a concocted opera that has a very serious underlying agenda that none of us know yet.

So please get off your high horse and don't use this event as your 15 seconds of fame, and waste it to make an needless and unwarranted attack on Alex Jones. He deserves much better than that, and if you can't see why, then you're one of the "morans".

More on the 'CDCs own numbers' ...

Wilmington News Journal, May 3, 2009
Wilmington, DE (Joe Bidens Home Town)


400 flu sick people at the Unversity of Delaware.
Only 10 got tested.
All 10 came back positive for swine flu.

The news now reports only 10 cases at the University of Delaware.
No mention of the other 390 people sick with the flu.

So now it's official that there are only 10 cases at the University of Delaware. But that's simply not a true number.

my only question is....WHY THE HELL IS NAPOLITANO INVOLVED IN EVERY ASPECT OF THIS. Today, on CNN, they Sebelius, Besser and Napolitano discussing this supposed outbreak. Why is Homeland Security riding this wave of bullcrap??

This whole thing stinks. This is just another criminal event being perpetrated on the people of this country. And you know what....there isn't a darn thing we can do about it. Nada...zilch...nothing. They have control, and will walk this down the premeditated path of their design. They know that more than 60% of the US population will go along with this, if not more.

But gee....at least the stock market loves it. Everything is great there...right??

stockcharts.com...$NDX&p=60&yr=0&mn=4&dy=0&id=p14602920690

The level of sheet absurdity in this country is beyond belief. I must be in the twilight zone, or dreaming heavily.

Thank gawd...I'm dreaming. This is all just a dream. I will wake up soon and resume my normal life. Someone pinch me...quick!

I've been asking the same questions. The stupidest thing that creature did was to state recently that the 911 terrorists entered the USA from Canada. What an idiot. Later on, she 'backpedaled' a little bit and said "Well not only those, but others". I wouldn't call that backpedaling.

Needless to say, the response from the Canadian gov't was lightening quick (one hour). Some of Napolitano's handlers saw the reaction from Canada and recognized there was some serious anger in it. Red-faced, they had to reel her in and hopefully inform her that maybe she should think before taking such mindless shots at a good neighbor. By the language coming out of the ambassador to Canada, the US was really embarrassed by that accusation. The USA pisses Canada off about once a month, but that one really got things sparkin' north of the border.

I swear, the US government purposely puts mindless, uneducated and inexperience idiots in charge of the state department to purposely pis other nations off. In all fairness, I don't blame the US government per se, but I blame the people who own the US government and tell it what to say, when to say it, when to drop bombs and when to take a dump. I honestly do not equate that with good American people.

This was posted on Friday, now on Saturday they confirm only 19? How many patients were resurrected from the dead?

Mexico swine flu death toll jumps to 19


" Does the media thank we are idiots".

That is a good question. But is the outbreak real? I don't know.

The answer is simply yes. Our American culture generally moves towards innovations that allow us to do less and less work outside our usual "jobs" each day. Therefore, the assumption is made that they can post discrepancies such as these, and that we will never notice because we are just "lazy." Unfortunately, they judge the whole off of the majority, but luckily it is the minority that they fear the most. Unfortunately that's the problem. We ARE the minority.

We aren't idiots and the media knows this. There are just too many of us to become organized and do anything. We are too lazy and have too much on our minds to do anything about anything.

Yes there are those that are not even aware of what is going on at all. Do you have any idea of just how many people NEVER watch any sort of news at all? It is scary how many people have no idea of the name of their own leaders. I am amazed at the people that don't even know there is a flu going around.

that is the yes side.

No, they know that SOME of us are not idiots. That is why they don't tell the truth. The press has always shared what they chose and kept what they wanted secret or at least hard to find. They say we may panic and take to the streets, would that really be a bad thing?

I don't trust much information at all about this. I can't wait for another seven days to go by and see how different the information is. Really we don't know much more now than we did last week when this all broke. Too much misinformation and out right lies out there.

there is no truth in the news, nor news in the truth.

Of courese the media thinks we're idiots, idiot.
That's because we ARE.
We're called 'sheeple' for a reason, the media points us in any direction they see fit, as they always have, and we blindly follow.

Idiots.

The government wants to declare marital law. The weather will be no help to them, probably just an ordinary hurricane season this year, becouse the sun is so quiet.

They want to quarantine and maybe force inoculations. But that's this winter.

When they want to force us to take the vaccines they will parade around some celebrities and elected officials, and show them taking the shot to prove it is safe. Their's will be.

They get a saline solution, we get???

I think this is a "dress rehearsal" for the "big one" rather than the big one itself. Perhaps they are using the flu to test certain mechanisms and answer certain questions: To what extent can we manipulate the information on something like this? To what extent can we ratchet the level of public fear up and down? Can we make people afraid, then make them forget, then make them afraid again? How many times can we go through this cycle? Is the public endlessly pliable? If not, were's the limit? How long after declaring Oceana is at war with Eastasia will it take before they forget we were at war with Eurasia five minutes earlier? Can this amount of time be manipulated? Lenghtened? Shortened? And so on.

Watching the way the media treats this is almost like watching a technician fiddle with knobs and levers on some machine, revving it up and powering it down, testing its paramaters. Except in this case the "machine" is socially constructed mass perceptions of reality. Unfortunately, it looks like the monkeys are jumping through the little hoops exactly according to plan and everything is working splendly for our psychopathic masters.

It does not matter, the only thing they care about is a pay check.

When I work for my job, they only thing I worry about is my paycheck, what goes on regardless is nothing important, I am there to get paid for the work that I do. If I were not paid dollars per hour, I feel my time would be better spent somewhere else. Just my opinion.

I am sure the news industry feels the same way. Do whatever it takes to get the pay check rolling in.

You have to ask yourself, do you get paid by the hour in dollars? or do you get paid by the hour in guilt you are supposed to feel.?

Capitalism is all about the money. Then turning money to even more money, profit.

If you do not like the capitalism profit, in which this country of the USA was founded, I suggest one would go move to a more socialist country where ones needs would be better suited.

Have a nice day and thanks for reading my post.

I can't resist adding my own .02 to this...

The question has a realistic answer, and an obvious one. They are not the same answer.

The obvious answer is, of course they do. It is evident in the way they communicate and what they deem is acceptable in journalism.

The realistic answer is; yes they do, and from their perspective, they are correct.

Social engineering is a real tool; stealthily crafted and deliberately employed - with the media as it's lynch-pin component.

I would like to quote (I think) a line from a recent movie (MIB), paraphrasing a much older adage; "A person can be very smart, but people are very dumb."

Creating consensus and manipulating public opinion is something political governments all aim to achieve. It's their idea of 'serving' us. 'Control' makes their job, or goal, easier to accomplish. Either way, the net result is that they prefer their citizens be sheep, as opposed to rams.

If the data they are presenting is confusing, it is because they want it so, or they themselves are confused. Another lose-lose scenario for the rest of us.
