i've told her about eco's theory, that NWO wants to kill us using the virus, not the vaccines.
that moshe and baxter incidents were blown out of proportion hoaxes to point us in wrong direction.
if we're right, NWO plan will result in all the conspiracy theory movement being totally compromised,
it's the biggest psyop in human history, and when we'll realize what's really going on... it'll be too late.

Situation with influenza stabilized.
344 people died (updated at 06:47 pm)
MIGnews.com.ua Deputy Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine Stepan Havrysh confirms statements made by Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko that an epidemic of influenza and acute respiratory viral infections is diminishing in Ukraine.
"The situation with influenza is diminishing. The curve of influenza, which was the highest on November 4, now has reached its lowest point. Although the number of cases has been increased during Tuesday, we believe that it is situational position" - he said in the air of 5th channel. According to Stepan Gavrish, last year on average 18 people died of influenza and pneumonia every day.
According to the Ministry of Health, over previous day 18 people died of influenza and acute respiratory viral infections in Ukraine, reports Ukrainskaya pravda. In addition, referring to the results of the examinations which were held in London and tin he United States, Stepan Havrysh said that pandemic influenza has not mutated in Ukraine. However, he noted that the second wave of the epidemic may occur either “in December or January”.
Now, according to the first Deputy Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council, "the epidemiological threshold is exceeded in 20 regions". The Ministry of Health has confirmed 344 deaths of influenza and acute respiratory viral infections as of November 18 in 23 Regions, Kyiv, Sevastopil and Crimea.
Scientists in Norway announced Friday they had detected a mutated form of the swine flu virus in two patients who died of the flu and a third who was severely ill.
In a statement, the Norwegian Institute of Public Health said the mutation "could possibly make the virus more prone to infect deeper in the airways and thus cause more severe disease," such as pneumonia.
The institute said there was no indication that the mutation would hinder the ability of the vaccine to protect people from becoming infected or impair the effectiveness of antiviral drugs in treating people who became infected.
Scientists have analyzed about 70 viruses from confirmed Norwegian swine flu cases and found the mutation in only those three patients, Geir Stene-Larsen, the institute's director general, said in the statement.
"Based on what we know so far, it seems that the mutated virus does not circulate in the population, but might be a result of spontaneous changes which have occurred in these three patients," the statement said.
The National Public Health Service for Wales (NPHS) has found person-to-person spread of a strain of swine flu resistant to Tamiflu within a South Wales hospital.
Five patients on a unit treating patients with severe underlying health conditions at the University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff, have been diagnosed with swine flu resistant to Oseltamivir (Tamiflu).
Three appear to have acquired the infection in hospital.
Dr Roland Salmon, Director of the NPHS Communicable Disease Surveillance Centre, said: “The emergence of influenza A viruses that are resistant to Tamiflu is not unexpected in patients with serious underlying conditions and suppressed immune systems, who still test positive for the virus despite treatment.
“In this case, the resistant strain of swine flu does not appear to be any more severe than the swine flu virus that has been circulating since April.
Re autopsies, these are currently done in less than 8% of deaths in America.
Health insurance schemes don't seem to cover them and hospitals are rarely funded for them, so in these harsh times they have almost been eliminated. When they are done there is often pressure on the doctor/patholigist to only see what they are told to see.
Abstract: The U.S. autopsy rate has fallen precipitously over the last half century, from 50 percent of bodies to less than eight percent today. Using data for 46 states from 1987 to 2000, we analyze the degree to which the decrease in the autopsy rate is due to better imaging technology or to cost pressures. We find that cost cutting pressures are more responsible for the decline than technology improvements.

Norway reported finding a mutated virus in three people who died or were severely ill. The mutation, known as D222G on the receptor binding domain, allow the virus to grow deeper in the lungs.
The mutation does not appear to be circulating and may have spontaneously arisen in the three patients, said Geir Stene-Larsen, director of the Norwegian Institute of Public Health. Only 3 of Norway’s 70 tested samples had it.
Asked about that, Dr. Schuchat said the same mutation had also been found in mild cases in several countries, and it did not make the virus resistant to vaccine or to treat
The D222G mutation allows the virus to bind to receptors on cells lining the lungs, which are slightly different from those in the nose and throat. Henry L. Niman, a flu tracker in Pittsburgh, has been warning for a week that D225G — the same mutation under a different numbering system — has been repeatedly found in Ukraine, which is in the grips of a severe outbreak and where surprising numbers of people have died with lung hemorrhages — the kind of pneumonia that can be caused by an immune system’s “cytokine storm” attacking a new virus.
