US: LA hospital "severely, dangerously" overcrowded
Via the Los Angeles Times: Overcrowding at County-USC Hospital heightens swine flu fears. Excerpt:

Los Angeles County-USC Hospital has become too overcrowded to handle the expected surge of H1N1 flu patients in coming months, county leaders said this week as they forced hospital officials to reduce wait times by transferring patients more quickly.

The crowd waiting for emergency room beds at County-USC often swells to 100, with some people waiting up to 24 hours, Supervisor Gloria Molina said.

Recent county reports show that 30% to 40% of the time the hospital is operating at “severely” and “dangerously” overcrowded levels.

Molina visited the hospital Monday night and met with about 40 families, most of whom had children. She said she talked to at least three patients who had been waiting for 23 hours.

“If H1N1 becomes the kind of pandemic that they think it may be, what you will have at L.A. County-USC is people in gurneys in the hallways; that’s the only capability they have,” Molina said. “They are at a point where they are going to be overtaxed.”

Second wave of swine flu hits Ontario
By THE CANADIAN PRESS

Canadians urged to ignore H1N1 vaccine myths


TORONTO — Ontario’s chief medical officer of health Dr. Arlene King is confirming that the second wave of H1N1 has arrived in Ontario.

“Influenza activity in the province is continuing to increase,” she said.

“We are seeing that more people are visiting their health-care providers with influenza-like illness and more people are being hospitalized with complications from the flu in Ontario.”

King said 28 people in the province who contracted swine flu have died since April, up one from the 27 reported earlier this week.

There are 439 people who have been hospitalized with confirmed cases of swine flu, and all but 31 of those people had been discharged as of Wednesday.

German doctors refuse to be bullied by authorities into giving "swine flu" jab

http://www.theflucase.com/index.php?opt ... 64&lang=en


Fredrich Hoffmann, the head of Germany's national vaccine commission, has told doctors that they should give the untested "swine flu" jab to their patients no matter what their opinion about it might be, but German doctors are refusing to bow down and be bullied.

The German national vaccine commission is made up of members with financial and other ties to pharmaceutical companies, and so it does not come as a surprise that Hoffmann is putting pressure on German doctors to give patients the lethal "swine flu" jab even though those same doctors will be liable to pay compensation for any damage and death caused by the jabs because the pharma companies have been given immunity.

However, doctors in Germany are refusing to be bullied by the authorities in league with big pharma into roll ingout a "swine flu" jab campaign that will make billions for vaccine companies.

Dr Jürgen Seefeldt, a specialist in internal medicine from Paderborn, sent an open letter to the Dr Susanne Stöcker, an official from the German drug regulator, the Paul Ehrlich Institute, pointing out the reason why her statement in the media that the "swine flu" jab was not risky was an "infamous lie".

Seefeldt systematically lists the dangers of squalene and mercury citing relevant scientific literature. He also notes that these toxic ingredients are not necessary for making a vaccine.

"You should desist in future in the interest of the rest of the population from making false statements of this kind and to put your efforts and energy into making swine flu vaccines withotu squalene and mercury," he writes.

This is his letter in German:

Offener Brief

Sehr geehrte Frau Dr. Stöcker,

Sie wurden im Westfalen-Blatt Nr. 230 vom 03.10.09 mit den Worten zitiert, "die Schutzimpfung gegen die Neue Grippe ist unbedenklich..."

Ich möchte Sie dringend ersuchen, diese infame Lüge zu unterlassen! Sie sind in dieser Aussage durch von mir unten genannte Medline-gelistete Aufsatz-Literatur inhaltlich damit einer Falschaussage überführt.

Alle deutschen Schweinegrippe-Impfstoffe, einschl. Pandemrix enthalten:

1) Squalen, ein sehr gefährliches Adjuvans, zu dem der Vizepräsident der Bundesärztekammer Dr. Montgomery sagt, er wolle niemanden Angst machen, aber das Adjuvans sei nicht ausreichend getestet. Squalen kann Autoimmunität induzieren. Autoimmunkrankheiten von Organen wie Herz, Lunge, Nieren enden auch heute letztendlich immer tödlich, sie sind unheilbar. Squalen steht wissenschaftlich in dringendem Verdacht, Mitursache oder sogar Ursache des "gulf war-syndromes" zu sein.

Squalen induziert anti-squalen-Antikörper und als Konsequenz einer Impfung mit einem Impfstoff, der Squalen enthält, kann es zur Bildung von Anti-Squalen-Antikörpern kommen, die eng mit der Pathologie des Golf-Krieg-Syndroms assoziiert sind.

( Carlson, B.C. et al.: The endogenous adjuvant squalene can induce a chronic T-cell mediated arthritis in rats, American Journal of Pathology 2000; 156: 2057- 2065;

Asa, P.B. et al.: Antibodies to squalene in Gulf War syndrome, Exp. Mol.

Pathol. 2000 Feb; 68(1): 55-64; Asa, P.B. et al.: Antibodies to squalene in recipients of anthrax vaccine, Exp.Mol. Pathol.2002 Aug; 73 (1): 19-27 )

Zudem ist in diesem Zusammenhang mehr als beunruhigend, dass bei militärischem Personal, das am Golfkrieg teilnahm und zuvor für diese Teilnahme multiple Impfungen mit Squalen erhielt, die Inzidenz des Auftretens einer amyotrophen Lateralsklerose signifikant erhöht war im Vergleich zu US-Militärpersonal, das nicht im Golfkrieg war.

( Horner, R.D. et al.: Occurence of amyotrophic lateral sklerosis among

Gulf war veterans, Neurology 2003 Sep 23;61(6): 742-749 )

In allen deutschen Schweinegrippe-Impfstoffen ist Squalen, aber nicht in den amerikanischen, dort ist durch die FDA eine kritische Haltung zu Squalen.

2.) Thiomersal = Thimerosal, ein extrem toxisches und krebserregendes Konservierungsmittel, das zu 49,6 % aus Quecksilber besteht ist in allen deutschen Schweinegrippe-Impfstoffen. Quecksilber als das giftigste nicht-radioaktive Element der Welt und schon in sehr geringen Mengen giftig.

( Mutter, J. et al: Comments on the article the toxicology of mercury

and its chemical compounds by Clarkson and Magos, Crit. Rev. Toxicol.

2007 Jul; 37(6): 537-549 )

Dieses giftigste nichtradioaktive Element der Welt ( es gibt kein giftigeres nichtradioaktives Element! )ist das zentrale Atom im Thiomersal-Molekül.

Thiomersal sollte eigentlich ab 2004 in Impfstoffen nicht mehr verwendet werden, ist aber leider in allen in Deutschland zur Injektion vorgesehenen Schweinegrippe-Impfstoffen enthalten und ist zu 5 Mikrogramm in Pandemrix, dem Schweinegrippe-Impfstoff, der staatlich empfohlen der Bevölkerung in Kürze gegeben werden soll. Bei 2 Impfen sind es schon 2 x 5 = 10 Mikrogramm Thiomersal.

Quecksilber ist in der MAK-Kommissionsliste krebserregend Gruppe 3 b!

Ca. 50 Millionen Schweine-Grippe Einzelampullen in den USA, gedacht für Kinder aber auch Erwachsene sind Thiomersal-frei oder haben nur Spuren von Thiomersal.

Quecksilber ist karzinogen. Für karzinogene Stoffe gibt es keinen individuellen Schwellenwert und damit keine Unbedenklichkeitsdosis. Ein Schwellenwert in der Karzinogenese kann nicht aus stark S-förmig verlaufenden Kurven des Dosis-Karzinom-Inzidenzverhältnis aus experimentellen Bioassays auf den Menschen übertragen werden. Der "Schwellenwert" in der Induktion bösartiger Tumore existiert, wenn überhaupt, individuell verschieden und ist durch genetische und lebensstil-bedingte Suszeptabilitätsunterschiede determiniert. Jeder Mensch hat in der Induktion eines Karzinoms einen individuellen "Schwellenwert" und dieser kann in Betrachtung stochastischer Elemente im Prozess der Krebsentstehung als exakter Schwellenwert erst nach der Tumorinzidenz definiert werden und nicht vorhergesagt werden.

( Lutz, W.K.: A true threshold dose in chemical carcinogenesis cannot be defined for a population, irrespective of the mode of action, Hum. Exp. Toxicol. 2000, 19 (10):566-8;discussion 571-2 )

Quecksilber ist hoch neurotoxisch, nephrotoxisch und hepatotoxisch und schädlich für alle menschlichen Gewebe. Quecksilber aus Thiomersal wird in Ethyl-Quecksilber metabolisiert und obwohl die HWZ von Ethyl-Quecksilber mit 7-10 Tagen relativ kurz ist, ist einmal ins Gehirn gelangtes Quecksilber praktisch nicht entfernbar, auch nicht mit DMSA.

Es ist unverantwortlich, Squalen und Quecksilberhaltige Grippe-Impfstoffe zu verwenden, zumal es technisch ohne Squalen und ohne Quecksilber geht. Dass es ohne Squalen geht, beweisen die Squalen-freien Impfstoffe gegen H1N1 in den USA und 2 verschiedene in Einzelampullen in den USA erhältliche Schweinegrippe-Impfstoffe sind zudem quecksilberfrei.

Auch ist Ihre "Argumentation", durch Fischverzehr würde eine weit höhere Konzentration an Quecksilber aufgenommen, eine Unverschämtheit, denn erst durch die industrielle Produktion kommt Quecksilber in die Nahrungskette und damit auch in Fische. Quecksilber in jeder Form, anorganisch und organisch gebunden, ist karzinogen.

Es gibt für karzinogene Noxen keinen Schwellenwert, keinen Unbedenklichkeitswert. ( Lutz, W.K.: A true threshold dose in chemical carcinogenesis cannot be defined for a population, irrespective of the mode of action, Hum. Exp. Toxicol. 2000, 19 (10): 566-8; discussion 571-2 )

Im logischen Umkehrschluss ist es, da Menschen Quecksilber durch die Nahrungskette und u.a. auch durch Fische essen aufnehmen im Sinne des Minimierungsgebotes für krebserregende Stoffe erst recht wichtig, dass durch Impfstoffe nicht zusätzliches toxisches und karzinogenes Quecksilber zugeführt wird, weil selbst ein einzelnes Atom Hg in Verkettung unglücklicher Umstände zur Induktion eines Tumorgens führen kann, indem ein Tumor-Suppressor-Gen mutiert. Ich bin Lehrbuch-Autor eines Buches über Karzinogenese (in Bearbeitung) und darf Ihnen versichern, dass ich weiß, worüber ich schreibe. Ihr im Westfalen-Blatt abgedrucktes "Fisch-Argument" ist in Wahrheit also sogar ein zusätzliches Argument gegen Quecksilber in Impfstoffen!

Sie sollten also im Interesse der Bevölkerung derartige Falschaussagen in Zukunft unterlassen und lieber Ihre Kraft und Energie darauf verwenden, Squalen- und Quecksilberfreie Schweinegrippe-Impfstoffe herzustellen. Das dies technisch möglich ist beweisen die USA, wo in Einzelampullen Fluzone 0,5 ml und Afluria 0,5 ml kein Thiomersal und damit kein Quecksilber enthalten ist und Squalen ist in den ganzen USA nicht in Schweinegrippe-Impfstoffen enthalten!

Hochachtungsvoll

The Swedish doctor Annika Dahlqvist, who lost her job for speaking out about her scepticism ragarding the mass vaccinations against "swine flu" in Sweden, has on her blog further explained her doubts regarding WHO, the disease and its "cure".

This is from her blog:

"As you can imagine, I get many emails about influenza and vaccination. Some of them contain information about how the new swine flu virus and the vaccine was created. This virus consists of genetic material from seasonal flu, swine flu and avian flu viruses. Viruses can not mix in this way in nature. Viruses can mutate, but they have no sexual reproduction that can mix genetic material. This means that the new virus was made in a laboratory, probably by pharmaceutical companies. The virus is then planted in strategic places around the world to cause an epidemic outbreak. After that, manufacturers persuade contacts in the WHO to issue a pandemic declaration. The unsuspecting politicians in countries around the world start mass-vaccinations of the population. And vaccine manufacturers makes billions off the whole thing, with relatively little input.

Media loves influenza and mass-vaccination. I read today in a chronicle by Rolf Elmer in Sydsvenskan. He writes: "The consequence of an unsuccessful vaccination program in Sweden would at worst be a long-term deterioration of public health and the resurgence of epidemics of the past."

How would a lower vaccination rate cause long-term deterioration of public health? And does he seriously believe that extensive mass-vaccination can eradicate a virus so that it will not come back? It is unbelievably naive, I think.

A link to the vaccination spectacle in Germany. Swedish translation. Ordinary citizens will be vaccinated with ethyl mercury and squalene, while politicians will be vaccinated without these additives.

A film about a woman who came down with a neurological disease after an influenza vaccination

Tonight in SVT1 Debate, at 10pm, it will be about influenza vaccination." Translation by Kerstin H - Thank you.




Now authorities and media in Sweden start to use verbiage which implies that to not get the vaccine shot is to risk others life - you would be considered a murderer if you do not take the vaccine and someone dies from the flu.

French government calculates 0.666 seconds to give each person the "swine flu" jab in vaccine centers

In 2003, Senator Jay Rockefeller steered through Senate Bill 666 allocating government funds for bioweapons development for pharmaceutical companies.

GlaxoSmithKline's Pandemrix is classified as a drug that belongs to the EU666 and US666 biodefense stockpile according to a biopharma database:

"Regulatory/Status Index:
EU200 Currently Approved in EU
EU666 Biodefense stockpile
UM100 Controlled/Gov’t Distribution in US
US666 Biodefense stockpile
EM160 Controlled/Gov’t Distribution in EU"


And now Carolyn in France has calculated that if the French government carries out its plan to vaccinate 360 people in four hours using a standard pandemic team, it will equal 0.666 seconds for each person.


Le Figaro also reported these times in a recent report:

Huit questions sur la vaccination

ARMELLE Bohineust
12/10/2009 | Mise à jour : 23:04

Qui est concerné ? Où se faire vacciner ? Réponses aux questions pratiques autour du vaccin H1N1.

Your browser may not support display of this image.Qui est concerné par la vaccination ?
Tous les volontaires. En priorité, le personnel médical, les femmes enceintes de plus de 3 mois, les enfants de 6 à 24 mois, l'entourage des nourrissons de moins de 6 mois et certains malades .

Quand va-t-elle commencer ?
La vaccination devrait commencer fin octobre et être étalée sur quatre mois au maximum. La majorité des centres sera en mesure de vacciner environ de 300 à 700 personnes par jour.

Où se faire vacciner ?
En aucun cas chez son médecin traitant ni, sauf exception (allergie à l'œuf par exemple), dans un hôpital. La vaccination s'effectuera dans les 1 080 centres installés dans les mairies, les gymnases, les salles polyvalentes. Ils sont situés dans les grandes villes de chaque département ou dans des lieux qui risquent d'être isolés en cas d'intempéries. C'est le cas de l'île d'Yeu, en Vendée, ou de Riom-ès-Montagnes, dans le Cantal. Dans certains départements, les femmes enceintes seront vaccinées dans des centres de santé tels que les PMI. Des équipes mobiles se déplaceront dans les écoles, lycées et collèges, ainsi que dans les prisons et les maisons de santé.

Où en sont les livraisons de vaccins ?
Elles ont commencé pour plusieurs laboratoires et s'étaleront sur plusieurs mois. Le 15 octobre, le gouvernement disposera d'un million de doses. Sanofi-Aventis sera le dernier laboratoire à livrer. Son vaccin avec adjuvant, qui sera validé comme les autres par les autorités européennes, arrivera fin novembre. Son vaccin sans adjuvant (Panenza), qui évite le circuit européen et attend l'autorisation des autorités françaises, pourrait être livré la troisième semaine de novembre.

Comment est-on informé ?
La Cnam enverra par vagues successives, en commençant par les publics prioritaires, un bon de vaccination à chaque assuré, en lui indiquant le centre dont il dépend et les horaires d'ouverture. Les assurés seront incités à se faire vacciner dans les dix jours suivant la réception du courrier. Les caisses d'assurance-maladie collecteront les données récoltées auprès de chaque patient lors de la vaccination (questionnaire de santé, références du vaccin utilisé) afin d'assurer la traçabilité des opérations.

Qui compose l'équipe de vaccination ?
Des volontaires, médecins et infirmiers libéraux, salariés ou retraités, personnel administratif détaché de services départementaux ou recruté pour l'occasion. Une équipe capable de vacciner 360 personnes en quatre heures compte en principe 15 personnes, dont deux médecins et trois infirmiers, élèves infirmiers ou étudiants en médecine.

Avec quel vaccin ?
Au total, plus de 90 millions de doses de trois vaccins seront disponibles : le Focetria de Novartis, le Pandemrix de GSK et le Humenza de Sanofi, tous trois avec adjuvant. S'y ajoutent le vaccin de Baxter, commandé en quantités très faibles (50 000 doses), plutôt destiné aux personnes allergiques à l'œuf, et un second vaccin de Sanofi, le Panenza. Sans adjuvant, ce Panenza a été commandé à 1,4 million d'exemplaires pour les femmes enceintes et les autres populations à risques. Mais, contrairement aux vaccins de GSK, Baxter et Novartis, déjà en cours de livraison, le Panenza sera disponible au mieux à la mi-novembre. La ministre de la Santé, Roselyne Bachelot, prépare donc un courrier adressé aux femmes enceintes, conseillant à celles dont la grossesse est inférieure à trois mois d'attendre ce vaccin et aux autres de consulter leur médecin ou de se faire vacciner en priorité avec un vaccin même s'il contient un adjuvant. La campagne est organisée a priori pour injecter deux doses, à vingt et un jours d'intervalle. Mais, le gouvernement pourrait suivre l'OMS et opter pour une injection unique. La Haute Autorité de santé recommande à certaines catégories de population à risques de se faire vacciner contre la grippe saisonnière puis contre la grippe A, en observant un délai de trois semaines entre les différentes injections.

Great article. But I think your math is off. A vaccine center with 15 doctors capable of vaccinating 360 persons in 4 hours makes 3600 * 4 / 15 / 360 = 2.666... seconds per patient.

Lebanon: Beirut's International College to close for 6 days over H1N1 cases

Via the Daily Star: Beirut's International College to close for 6 days over H1N1 cases. Excerpt:

Caretaker Health Minister Mohammad Jawad Khalifeh on Sunday warned expectant mothers to be wary of the A(H1N1) virus after ordering an investigation to determine whether the death of a young pregnant woman was caused by the infection.

The woman, whose name has not been disclosed, was hospitalized Friday at a hospital in Bekaa’s Riyak area, with advanced symptoms of pneumonia, the National News Agency reported. Although she appeared to respond to initial medication, the woman developed a high temperature on Sunday.

After the hospital chief Mohammad Abdullah contacted Khalifeh Sunday morning to report the suspected swine-flu case, the woman was transferred to a hospital in Beirut but died shortly after arrival.

If Abdullah’s suspicions are confirmed, the woman will be the first woman in Lebanon to have died of the virus. There have already been two other swine-flu-related deaths.

Speaking to the National Broadcasting Network (NBN), Khalifeh said pregnant women should “worry” about the virus as they and their unborn babies are especially vulnerable to catching swine flu.

The death comes as private school International College (IC) announced it would be shutting its middle school in Beirut for six days starting Tuesday because of the high number of students suffering from the virus.

In a letter posted on the school’s website Saturday, IC President John Johnson said 50 students were absent from classes on Friday alone.

“To date we have had 31 cases of this influenza in the Ras Beirut Middle School, 12 of whom have already recovered and returned to school,” he said.

Johnson said IC was following regulations issued by the Center for Disease Control, which required siblings of swine flu patients to also stay at home for a five-day incubation period.

All students are requested to stay at home and avoid contact with classmates until the school reopens on November 2

The Swine Flu (aka 'H1N1) That's
Not A Flu At All
Lawrence Broxmeyer, MD
©2009 All Rights Reserved
10-25-9

The current Swine "flu" pandemic began in La Gloria, a pig-farming village in the Veracruz mountains of Mexico. Surely, if any place could unlock the true nature of the cause of the 2009 Pandemic, it would be found in La Gloria, whose villagers were certain that they were sickened by the surrounding pig farms, which they accused of polluting their air and water with pig waste. This is much like what happened in Haskell County, Kansas in 1918, original site of the Great Influenza Pandemic of 1918.

But Enrique Sanchez, top official from Mexico's Agriculture Department, could not find H1N1 in mucous samples taken from the pigs several weeks later, on April 30th. Common bacteria were also tested for. However no studies were done to rule out Swine tuberculosis which is predominantly avian and to a lesser extent bovine, and could have also accounted for the wholesale "respiratory" problems the villagers were experiencing.

Mexican health officials, overlooking the La Gloria situation initially, downplayed it, much as health officials everywhere are prone to do. Yet of 43 villagers whose mucous samples were taken, only one, a 5-year-old boy, was confirmed as having Swine Flu. So head investigator from the Biotechnology Institute of the National Autonomous University of Mexico there, Dr. Carlos Arias, told the AP:

"I cannot understand it. I could almost bet that there were more infections related to the virus."

Soon, more than half of La Gloria's 3,000 residents fell ill with FLU-LIKE illness, etiology unknown. 450 of the sickest of these where treated not with anti-virals such as Tamiflu, but with antibiotics and masks. What was the diagnosis handed out? Why it was "acute respiratory infections", and by the time the mucous results came through in early April, most of the villagers had recovered, the more serious cases on antibiotics alone. The "virus" seemed to have left their systems. But the question lingers: since antibiotics don't cure "viruses" what infectious disease in these purported "Influenza" victims had been cured by the antibiotics given?

On June 3rd, 2009 in Global Research, a curious article by F. William Engdahl appeared, entitled "Sarkozy's Secret Plan for Mandatory Swine Flu Vaccination". In it Engdahl plainly stated that "The only problem with the Swine Flu (H1N1) Vaccine, is that to date, neither WHO nor the US Government's Center for Diseases Control (CDC) have succeeded to isolate, photograph with an electron microscope, or chemically classify the H1N1 Influenza A virus". Furthermore there was no scientifically published evidence that French virologists have done so either. Therefore, mentioned Engdahl, "To mandate a vaccination for a putative (supposed or assumed to exist) disease that has never been characterized, is dubious to say the least."

Engdahl had done his homework. When questioned regarding the electron pictograph of H1N1 that the CDC recently came up with on their website, he revealed his source, German virologist Dr Stefan Lanka, an expert on the documentation of viruses, attesting to the fact that the H1N1 picture was bogus. The virologist wrote that he had "written the CDC many times as to who made the H1N1 photo's and whether they where scientifically documented as to chemical characteristics and other properties." There was never any reply. He concluded "If CDC refuses to cite the source of the photos, they are fake." Worse yet he said "The photos are merely liposomes, microscopic artificial sacs whose walls are a double layer of phospholipids, used to carry substances such as drugs, vaccines, and enzymes to specific cells or organs of the body. These have been artificially presented by a process where chick embryos or cell cultures are killed, reduced and then centrifuged with some solvent, to then, in a vacuum, be nanofiltered." As if this wasn't enough, the virologist testified that "Such a structure has never been characterized in either an organism or its fluids. Furthermore, if there wasn't for the centrifuge/solvent/nanofiltration manipulation, not to mention the precipitation procedure, such particles could never be presented under the electron microscope. In conclusion, without the isolation of the H1N1, there is no H1N1 infecting virus"

Engdahl wasn't finished. "Even more bizarre is the admission by the US Government's Food and Drug Administration, an agency responsible for the health and safety of its citizens, that the 'test' approved for premature release to test for H1N1 is not even a proven test. More to the point", continues F. William Engdahl, "there is no forensic evidence in any of the deaths reported to date that has been presented that proves scientifically that any single death being attributed to H1N1 Swine Flu virus was indeed caused by such a virus."

These thoughts were only strengthened when Engdahl looked into "Novavax, a US pharmaceutical company based in Rockville, Maryland, (who) conveniently enough just announced it is developing a vaccine for H1N1 based on 'virus-like particles'".

'Virus-like particles' do not mean virus. Viral-like, cell-wall-deficient forms of tuberculosis, for example, also appear virus-like and apparently.. so also did non-infectious liposomes.


Both the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) are fully aware of a far more serious and ongoing tuberculosis Pandemic in the world today. Yet they choose to downplay the link, disregarding the similar flu-like symptoms tuberculosis often begins with.

WHO freely admits that there were approximately 1.8 million deaths from tuberculosis in 2007, the most recent year for which data are available as well as that presently about one-third of the world's population, or two billion people, carry the TB bacteria.

The "H" and "N" of influenza sub-typing, revolves around two glycoproteins called Hemagglutin (H) and Neuraminidase (N), both of which can be, and are, associated with infectious diseases such as the minuscule, viral forms of tuberculosis, a disease which ought to be high on the differential diagnosis for 'flu-like illness' . An August, 2008 Medline study in the Journal of Clinical Biochemistry showed that sputum neuraminidase levels over 1.0 mU per mL were proven associated with having tuberculosis in 92% of cases. Previous to this, bacteria closely related to TB were shown, through crystallization, to produce the same protein neuraminidase used to subtype 'Influenza'. Furthermore, as of 2006, it has become obvious in Menozzi's study that similar to Influenza, Tuberculosis not only uses Hemagglutin to attach to the lung's epithelial cells it invades, but requires Hemagglutin for dissemination of the disease to the rest of the body.

Khomenko's 1993 study, showed that the explosive contagiousness of just such influenza-like forms of tuberculosis are exactly the stuff that previous epidemics and pandemics could have been made of. Khomenko was mentioned by Nobel nominee Lida Mattman in her textbook. That is exactly why, that in response to the present world "flu" pandemic, Japan's Health Ministry's Tuberculosis Infection Diseases Control Division deputy director Takeshi Enami went hand in hand with Yoshio Nanba, director of The Office of Pandemic Influenza Preparedness and Response, to attend a news conference in Tokyo on May 1, 2009.

But back in the US, the CDC and NIH seem to feel differently, ignoring everything but "the virus". There was much the same "Influenza" talk when in 1990, a new multi-drug-resistant (MDR) tuberculosis outbreak took place in a large Miami municipal hospital. Soon thereafter, similar outbreaks in three New York City hospitals left many sufferers dying within weeks. By 1992, approximately two years later, drug-resistant tuberculosis had spread to deadly mini-epidemics in seventeen US states, and was reported, not by the American, but the international media, as out of control. Viral forms of swine, avian and human TB can be transmitted from one species to another. By 1993 the World Health Organization (WHO), proclaimed tuberculosis a global health emergency. (1)

1918 AND TODAY

No one can deny the similarities between the onset of the 1918 epidemic and that of today, yet a Press Release, issued on August 19, 2008, by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), contains a striking finding and conclusion: The 20 to 40 million deaths worldwide from the great 1918 Influenza ("Flu") Pandemic were NOT due to "flu" or a virus, but to pneumonia caused by massive bacterial infection."(2)

Subsequently, a study published in JAMA by Talbot and Moore (3) in 2000 showed that Mexican immigrants to the US have the highest case rates for tuberculosis among foreign born persons. Mexico is the country where Swine Flu deaths were first documented.

The research of Lawrence Broxmeyer MD (4) first proclaimed that the 1918 pandemic was due to bacteria, particularly mutant forms of flu-like fowl, swine, bovine, and human tuberculosis (TB) bacteria:

( http://drbroxmeyer.netfirms.com/001pdfB ... LISHED.pdf ).

These forms of tuberculosis are often viral-like, mutate frequently and can "skip" from one species to another. Moreover the antibodies from such viral TB forms react in the compliment fixation and later "viral" assays (5). They also grow on cultures which are supposed to grow only viruses.

In a supportive 16-page-paper which appeared in Population and Development Review, University of California demographers Andrew Noymer and Michael Garenne came up with convincing statistics showing that undetected tuberculosis may have been the real killer in the 1918 flu epidemic (6).

THE ROOTS OF HISTORY

Noymer's TB hypothesis stands sound against history. Few flu "experts" are aware that in medical texts printed circa 1918 "Influenza" was attributed not to a virus but a bacteria called Mycobacterium influenzae, discovered by Pfeiffer and Canon (7) in 1892......not exactly a coincidence since Richard Pfeiffer worked, at one time, for Robert Koch, the discoverer of tuberculosis, a disease also caused by another bacillus called Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Both mycobacteria stained best with carbol-fuchsin, a bacterial stain commonly used in the staining of mycobacteria as it has an affinity for the mycolic acids found in their cell walls. Mycobacteria such as tuberculosis are particularly deadly because they share properties of the fungi ("myco-") as well as bacteria. TB was, not all that long ago, referred to as "captain of the men of death". And it never lost its potential to kill.

Mycobacterium influenzae was considered by most to be the cause of influenza until 1933. But there were serious diagnostic problems with Mycobacterium influenza. Stengel and Fox warned (8) about them in their widely quoted W.B. Saunder's 1915 version of "A Textbook of Pathology". Problems with identification revolved mainly in that although the bacterial influenza occurred abundantly in the sputum of flu patients at first, it decreased in quantity as the cases advanced. And when purulent expectoration stopped, whether the disease was still active or not, Mycobacterium influenzae "disappears entirely"(8).

In 1933 English physicians Wilson Smith, Christopher H. Andrewes, and Patrick P. Laidlaw(9) removed secretions from the throat of a humans with flu-like symptoms thought to have "influenza", and then filtered out a suspected infectious agent, which by virtue of the fact that it went through a filter was falsely proclaimed, from the onset, to be "a virus". Injecting it into ferrets, the ferrets then developed the same flu-like symptoms which Smith, Andrews and Laidlaw summarily declared as "influenza". In addition Sir Christopher Andrewes suggested, with the help of Burnet and Bang, that the term "myxovirus", meaning "mucous virus", be incorporated into a family name for the Influenzas. This, one imagines, was because the organism came from mucous secretions.

But to government pathologist and pioneer physician/researcher William M. Crofton, who by virtue of his office as County pathologist had examined some of Laidlaw's human "Flu" samples, Laidlaw's entire study was flawed. Crofton found Laidlaw's Flu samples to be laced with the bacillus Mycobacteria influenzae, which by then had been renamed Haemophilus Influenzae. To Crofton this bacilli was the common denominator for the Pandemic of 1918 he had witnessed, although the bacteria could be accompanied by an array of opportunistic organisms such as Staph and Strep. Crofton publically and personally confronted and challenged Laidlaw to come to his laboratory for the proof that his Influenza samples weren't viral. Crofton was convinced by the confirmation of scientists like Calmette at Pasteur regarding how certain forms of tuberculosis, appearing both minuscule and viral, could pass through the smallest of filters. Crofton himself then established that tuberculosis could disappear into tissues as viruses did, and then go through filters which stopped cold even most of those "now invariably called viral disease". "Surely, then", Crofton concluded, "Tuberculosis has more right to be considered a true virus than these(10)." So, at a time when viral forms of TB where scantily being documented, Crofton struggled to link H. Flu with the TB it so often infected in coordination with, as historical and political momentum carried Laidlaw's study through for posterity. A great opportunity was missed to correct the record.

Frank Macfarlane Burnet was the first to grow "Influenza" in a laboratory setting; in 1940 he grew influenza in embryonated chicken eggs, using the allantoic sac. He obviously considered such a technique "Influenza" specific, never bothering to consider that such an allantoic site might also be an excellent site for culturing the viral or Cell-Wall-Deficient (CWD) forms of tuberculosis and the mycobacteria. Viral TB, in fact grows there as early as 6 hours after introduction into such a place in chicken embryos(11).

Furthermore, some of the filamentous forms of tuberculosis mentioned by Corper (12) appear similar to those attributed to ''Influenza'' by biochemist and Influenza guru Burnet (13).

It wasn't because Burnet didn't know that bacteria could assume viral forms. The first, and for a time the only virologist in Australia, it was Burnet who discovered bacteria in viral forms of Q-fever (14). And in that same paper, proclaiming Virology as an Independent Science , and after admitting that viruses, including influenza, are composed of the same sorts of material as bacteria, Burnet struggles to differentiate Influenza by the fact that it ''probably has no DNA'' and was therefore exclusively RNA.(Ibid.). But, according to Xalabardar, some cell-wall-deficient mycobacterial forms also are exclusively RNA. Furthermore, points out Xalabarder, such cell-wall-deficient tubercular forms are true antigens, all of which, similar to Influenza, induce the production of specific antibodies detectable by complement fixation tests, such as those originally used to detect Influenza (5).

CONCLUSION

In a landmark study(15), Dr. Robert Donaldson, working out of the Pathological Society of Great Britain had ruled out that the mycobacteria now referred to as H. Influenza by itself was behind 1918, perhaps because of its disappearing nature. Yet at the same time he quickly added that there wasn't "the slightest shred of evidence" that the disease was due to a "virus" or influenza. Nor was Donaldson ever able to refute Broxmeyer and Noymer's feelings that TB was behind the many deaths in the pandemic, specifically because it is well known that secondary bacterial infections, be they from opportunistic Haemophilus influenza or any other common bacteria, are a common secondary manifestation in TB-infected lungs. During the pandemic, one-third of patients who had Haemophilus influenza were also found to have tuberculosis - keeping in mind, as always, that many other cases with TB went undiagnosed.

In order to understand why we have this emphasis by those virologists invested in a 'killer flu' in the US today, one must look back historically at the science itself. Until the late 1940s influenza 'viruses' were studied as infections, which, although filterable, were conceived of as analogous to bacteria, a kind of ultra or viral-like bacteria. Not to be deterred, and still seeing Influenza as a great opportunity for virology, in 1941 virologist Hirst claimed that influenza ''virus'' could agglutinate (or clot) red blood cells of fowl and other animal species(16). Such a hemagglutinin discovery, in turn, led to fast assays of what is thought to be Influenza. The "H" in H1N1 comes to us through Hirst, who showed that ''virus'' particles first adsorbed to the red cells and, after a certain time, eluted again as a result of what could be interpreted as an enzymatic reaction. But 6 years later, Middlebrook and Dubos(17) made this seem nothing more than a cheap hat trick by showing that similarly red blood cell agglutination could be produced by sera from patients with tuberculosis. Takahashi and Ono(18,19) reviewed similar red cell agglutination occurring in the presence of tuberculous serums.

As Influenza historian van Helvoort aptly pointed out (20), indeed, in the 1930s and 1940s the concept of 'filterable viruses', including Influenza, were subject to such criticism that Virology's very foundations were threatened. Dogmatized statements like those coming from pioneer virologist Andre Lwoff in 1957 : ''Viruses should be considered as viruses because viruses are viruses''(21) were totally unacceptable, and did little to help the situation. So it was in 1952 that Cornelius P. Rhoads, Director of Sloan-Kettering Institute for Cancer Research in New York City, remarked in a conference introduction that the term ''viruses'', such as that of Influenza, had achieved ''a high professional status with doubtful credentials''(22).

Perhaps in his authoritative text, The Pathogenesis of Tuberculosis, Johns Hopkin's head of pathology, Arnold Rich summed things up best:

"In relation to the question of the effect of influenza upon tuberculosis, it should be pointed out that in many cases in which pulmonary tuberculosis has been thought to have followed an attack of influenza it is altogether probable that the supposed attack of influenza was, in reality, a manifestation of an existing tuberculous infection; for tuberculoprotein, whether absorbed from a spreading lesion or injected into the body, can cause constitutional symptoms (fever, malaise, headache, joint pains, anorexia, prostration) quite like those of influenza." (23)

As Professor Hans Rosling ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V8bUtbODV-Q http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V8bUtbODV-Q) has so aptly pointed out: during the initial 13 days that WHO started gaining data on Swine Flu Deaths, April 24-May 06, 2009, 31 people died of Swine Flu. 29 of these were in Mexico and 2 in the US. During this same 13 day window, 63,000 people, around the world died of tuberculosis. (http://www.who.int/research/en).

What we have today, is a pandemic with "flu-like" symptoms. And flu-like symptoms doesn't necessarily mean "Influenza" is its underlying cause.

US: H1N1 advisory for heart/lung transplants

Thanks to the reader who sent the link to this report from UPI.com: H1N1 advisory for heart/lung transplants. Excerpt:

There are additional challenges for cardiopulmonary transplant recipients and donors if they catch H1N1 flu, U.S. researchers say.

Physicians representing the International Society for Heart & Lung Transplantation Infectious Disease Council issued an advisory for all programs in cardiothoracic transplantation that aggressive diagnosis and early treatment need be paired with active preventative measures to stem the impact of infection in the transplant population.

Since transplant recipients are treated with anti-rejection drugs, the advisory provides clear directions for specific dosing of anti-viral drugs and management of the background immunosuppression.

Specific guidelines for evaluation and management of post-surgical transplant patients are also given, as well as recommendations for how and when to administer vaccines.

UPDATE:US OKs Emergency Use Of Experimental Antiviral For H1N1 Flu - WSJ.com

(Updates with additional information from FDA in fifth paragraph)

WASHINGTON (Dow Jones)--The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is allowing the use of an experimental antiviral drug to treat severe cases of H1N1 or swine flu.

The drug, peramivir, is currently being developed by BioCryst Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (BCRX) and is undergoing testing required for regular FDA approval.

The FDA issued a so-called emergency use authorization late Friday that allows doctors to use peramivir, which is delivered intravenously, in certain hospitalized adult and pediatric patients with confirmed or suspected H1N1 influenza.

Swine flu peaks out before vaccines even make it into widespread distribution | DoomDaily

See Story and Working Links At:

http://www.doomdaily.com/2009/swine-flu ... ribution/#



Mike Adams
NaturalNews
Wednesday, Oct 28th, 2009

Swine flu infections have peaked out in the USA, even before drug companies could get their vaccines injected into everyone. According to CDC findings announced recently in Atlanta, one in five U.S. children have already experienced the flu this month, and most of those were likely H1N1 swine flu cases, the CDC says.

This comes from a survey of over 10,000 U.S. households conducted by the CDC.

Meanwhile, flu vaccine shipments are way behind schedule. There have been supply problems from the start, and as of right now, relatively few Americans have yet been injected with the swine flu vaccine. (Many have stood in line for hours trying to be injected, but were told to go home with the vaccine ran out.)

Out of nearly 14,000 suspected flu cases tested during the week ending on October 10, 2009, 99.6% of those were influenza A, and the vast majority of those were H1N1 swine flu infections. (http://www.cdc.gov/flu/weekly/) This is a very strong indication that swine flu infections have peaked during October, 2009.

Further supporting that notion, researchers from Purdue University just published a paper in the October 15 issue of Eurosurveillance (a science journal about communicable disease) in which researchers stated that the H1N1 swine flu epidemic would peak during “week 42″ (the end of October). Week 42 just passed. It’s over.

The AJC is also reporting this week that swine flu is “retreating” in Georgia, where hospital visits from the flu are markedly down (http://www.ajc.com/health/swine-flu…) and fewer illnesses are being reported in schools, too.

(ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW)

Swine flu peaks out before vaccines even make it into widespread distribution 071009banner3

Even the WHO is reporting a downward trend in many areas, saying, “In tropical areas of the world, rates of illness are generally declining, with a few exceptions. …In tropical Asia, of the countries that are reporting this week, all report decreases in respiratory disease activity.” (http://www.who.int/csr/don/2009_10_…)

Meanwhile, even as the swine flu infection peaks out, the shortage of swine flu vaccines means few people have yet been vaccinated. The shortage is causing “chaos” in clinics across the country, news reports say, and flu vaccination events have been cancelled due to the non-arrival of expected vaccines.

And what, exactly, is causing this shortage of vaccines? According to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, they’re being caused by “production failures” at the drug manufacturing facilities.

Is she serious? People are lining up to be injected with chemicals made by companies that are suffering “production failures?” If these companies can’t meet the production targets they already promised, how can we expect them to meet the safety targets they promised?

The bigger point, though, is that by the time vaccines are available for everyone, most people will have already been exposed to the H1N1 virus and therefore won’t even need a vaccine. There’s also evidence that previous exposure to seasonal flu may confer some natural immunity to H1N1, meaning that vaccines may be redundant from the start (http://www.naturalnews.com/027337_H…).

Delivering vaccines to the public after the pandemic peaks and wanes is sort of like putting on your seatbelt after a head-on collision. (This metaphor assumes, just for the moment, that swine flu vaccines actually work. Even though they don’t.)

Through the coming holiday season, we’ll all get to watch the CDC, the FDA and drug companies desperately try to push vaccines onto people, most of whom are already immune to H1N1 because they were exposed during the peak of the pandemic. This will be quite entertaining to observe because you’ll get to watch health authorities in action, attempting to fabricate an emergency when the pandemic threat has already faded. To maximize vaccinations (and therefore Big Pharma revenues), they’ll need to keep pushing the pandemic fears through the winter months while hoping that no one notices the H1N1 pandemic has evaporated.

Predictably, the big push at that point will be based on the following logic: “Even if you were already exposed to H1N1, getting a vaccine shot can’t hurt. Might as well get one!”

The CDC, which once promised 150 million vaccines by mid-October has pushed its prediction to year’s end. Unless some new H1N1 mutation is released into the population by some bioterrorist group, it’s fairly obvious that the swine flu will have fizzled out by the time Christmas rolls around.
How to dispose of a hundred million doses of a useless vaccine…

So what will all these clinics do with all the millions of doses of vaccines that nobody really needs at that point? It might seem prudent to dump them down the river, except for the fact that their chemical additives and preservatives make many vaccines qualify as “hazardous waste” according to EPA regulations. It’s illegal to toss them into rivers or even dump them down the drain… it’s perfectly legal, though, to inject them into the body of a six-year-old.

Why don’t they just save the vaccines for next year? They’ll be useless, of course, but no more useless than they already are this year. Just save up all the vials and unleash another swine flu scare next fall to get rid of the inventory! (Don’t laugh. These people might actually take the idea seriously…)

You gotta love the pharmaceutical industry. After forty years of research into cancer (and tens of billions of dollars spent on it), they have yet to find a cure for any cancer at all. And with the swine flu fiasco, they almost managed to come up with a vaccine, but the human immune system — combined with a nation full of sneezers and spreaders — beat them to it.

It must really be depressing to wake up one day as a pharmaceutical company executive and realize you’re irrelevant… and that your “lifesaving” products are obsolete before they even hit the streets. Of course, the ridiculously high pay might make up for some of that, and if you get really depressed, you can always take your own company’s pills if you’re willing to brave the suicide risk. But in the end, the simple fact is that human beings would be better off of the drug companies didn’t exist.

The fact that H1N1 swine flu has already peaked out before the bulk of the vaccine shipments have even arrived proves, once again, how utterly pathetic and medically useless flu vaccines are in the first place. There is nothing a flu vaccine can do that simple vitamin D can’t do better, and the sad truth is that the entire flu vaccine industry is built on medical quackery and marketing propaganda.

Debate over swine flu shots in Germany

By KIRSTEN GRIESHABER (AP)
http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/art ... QD9BIV8200

BERLIN — A debate over two different swine flu vaccines overshadowed Germany's launch of a public inoculation program against the pandemic on Monday.

Critics warned the vaccinations campaign could be a "million-euro flop" as many people might refuse to participate after learning they would receive a different shot than one being given to politicians, high-ranking government employees and soldiers.

German authorities ordered 50 million doses of swine flu vaccines, and began inoculating physicians, nurses, rescue workers and the chronically ill this week.

However, most Germans will be getting Pandemrix, a vaccine by GlaxoSmithKline PLC that contains an adjuvant, while Germany's politicians, government employees and troops will get Celvapan, made by Baxter International without an adjuvant.

Adjuvants — or chemical compounds that boost the human body's immune response and stretch the vaccine's active ingredient so more doses can be made — are relatively new in flu vaccines, and there is limited data on how safe they are in certain population groups, such as pregnant women and children. No flu vaccines with adjuvants are licensed in the U.S., though they are commonly used in Europe.

Wolfgang Wesiack, the head of the Association of German Internists, warned of "vaccine fatigue" and said many people feared a "two-class health system."

Government spokesman Ulrich Wilhelm defended the vaccination policy, saying last week the two vaccines were equal. He explained that the different orders were simply the result of government departments making their purchases without coordinating.

He also said Chancellor Angela Merkel would get the Pandemrix shot, intended for the general public.

There have been no major side effects reported in any of the ongoing swine flu vaccine trials, including those using adjuvants.

Some countries, such as Canada, have ordered special stocks of non-adjuvanted swine flu shots for pregnant women and children, thought to be most at risk from swine flu. Though the vast majority of swine flu cases are mild, and most people recover without needing treatment.

The World Health Organization recommends countries use vaccines with adjuvants to increase the global supply.

All flu vaccines have the potential to cause side effects, from sore arms and headaches to fever.

Hong Kong: Flu season comes early

Via The Standard: Concern as flu season comes early. Excerpt:

The fight against human swine flu (H1N1) in Beijing is getting "serious" after about 200 new cases were confirmed in each of the past two days, a mainland health official said.

As of Monday, there were 5,800 confirmed cases of swine flu in the capital. There have been 33,000 confirmed cases in the mainland with two deaths.

Fang Laiying, head of the Beijing Municipal Health Bureau, told China Daily that this year's winter flu wave has come early and warned that the combination of pandemic and seasonal flu may result in a record number of cases this year.

Flu season usually stretches from December to January.

The number of flu cases this month is almost three times the total recorded in Beijing in October last year.

In Hong Kong, meanwhile, the number of swine flu cases has dropped for a third week running, but officials are not letting their guard down as they brace for the winter flu peak.

As of October 21, a total of 31,211 people have been confirmed to have swine flu, their age ranging from 10 days to 95 years, with a median age of 14. Thirty-seven had died as of Monday.

Hong Kong began a seasonal flu vaccination program on October 19, two weeks earlier than scheduled so as to have enough lead time for a mass vaccination program against the swine flu pandemic.

As of Monday, around 6,300 children and 21,000 seniors have received seasonal flu jabs under the expanded vaccination subsidy scheme.

The central government has said it plans to inoculate 5 percent of the population, or 65 million people, against swine flu by year's end. So far, 300,000 people have received the vaccination.

Turkey: H1N1 keeps spreading

Swine flu epidemic on the rise across Turkey, new measures taken
Via Today's Zaman: Swine flu epidemic on the rise across Turkey, new measures taken. Excerpt:

Swine flu cases, which have nearly doubled in a week in Turkey, continue to increase across the country, with new cases being discovered in more provinces.

The number of people infected by H1N1 virus (swine flu) -- which has exceeded 1,100 since the first case was discovered in May -- continue to rise, prompting officials to intensify preventive efforts against the spread of the virus.

Twenty students have been found to be infected by the virus in three districts of the Aegean province of Muğla, the Muğla provincial education director announced yesterday. He said there is no evidence of swine flu in Muğla’s city center so far.

Twelve people were also diagnosed as having the H1N1 virus in the southeastern province of Şanlıurfa. Officials said five in the eastern province of Ağrı, three in the Central Anatolian province of Çorum and five in the eastern province of Van have also been found to be carrying the virus.

The Health Ministry announced in a statement that eight out of 1,108 swine flu cases have been treated in hospitals, adding that two patients are receiving treatment in an intensive care unit.

U.S. may end up discarding unused H1N1 vaccine
Wed Oct 28, 2009 12:46am EDT

http://www.reuters.com/article/domestic ... O720091028

By Maggie Fox, Health and Science Editor


WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. government may end up throwing away unused doses of swine flu vaccine if people cannot get it soon enough, the director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said on Tuesday.

Members of Congress questioned whether federal officials were too rosy in their estimates of how much vaccine would be available and when, and companies said they were still struggling to produce immunizations against H1N1.

CDC director Dr. Thomas Frieden said 22.4 million doses were now available to states, which can get them a day after they order them.

"It's quite likely that too little vaccine is one of the things that's making people more interested in getting vaccinated, frankly," Frieden told reporters.

"We think it will get easier to find vaccine in the weeks that come."

President Barack Obama's daughters found it. "Malia and Sasha were both vaccinated for H1N1 last week, after the vaccine became available to Washington, D.C. schoolchildren," a White House blog reads.

"President and Mrs. Obama have not yet been vaccinated for H1N1, and they will wait until the needs of the priority groups identified by the CDC -- including young people under the age of 24, pregnant women, and people with underlying conditions -- have been met."

Many states and cities say they have received about one-tenth as much vaccine as they originally had expected by this time. Frieden said the delays may discourage people who are lining up for vaccine.

"It is likely also as we produce more vaccine and as both people are given the opportunity to get vaccinated, and as disease maybe wanes in the future, we will have significant amounts of vaccine that can't be used," Frieden said.

"One of the messages for states, localities and health providers is not to reserve vaccine that they have available, to give it out as soon as it comes in, because more is on the way."

In September, U.S. officials said 40 million vaccine doses would be available by the end of October and they estimated 20 million doses a week would be delivered, with a goal of 250 million doses by the end of flu season in March or April.

UNRELIABLE ESTIMATES

Maine Republican Senator Susan Collins asked why the estimates were so far off.

"It now appears that much of the vaccine could arrive only after many people have already been infected with H1N1," she said in a letter to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, released late on Monday.

"It seems that HHS gave its assurance of sufficient supply in August without adequate information to make such a commitment."

Connecticut independent Senator Joseph Lieberman weighed in

on Tuesday.

"Unfortunately, these missteps in estimating available doses of H1N1 vaccine have effects beyond just growing public frustration; they have the potential to critically undermine our vaccine distribution efforts, which depend on accurate estimates of vaccine availability," he said.

But HHS spokeswoman Jenny Backus said the agency was simply passing on information as it became available.

"We have been very clear and open and told the American people what we know when we know it," she said in a telephone interview.

"We have passed on the manufacturing estimates, and as they have changed, we have conveyed the information to the American people, too."

ABSOLUTE LIES 100% PROOF THEY ARE LYING ( GET THIS OUT NOW ! ) SEE LINK

How the hell can they categorically say that the H1N1 is safe for pregnant women and the baby they are carrying. THE TESTS ONLY STARTED IN SEPTEMBER 2009 AND THE END RESULTS WILL BE OUT IN JULY 2010. So they have got NO idea what it is doing to the fetus or maybe they have and that is the idea. I am absolutely disgusted with our governments and the propaganda they have been using to scare the population into getting a fast tracked H1N1 swine flu vaccine. AND now that the USA is under a National Emergency that allows hospitals and doctors to use drugs and treatments which have NOT been approved by the FDA and have NOT gone through all the necessary tests to find out whether they are safe for public use. For example SQUALENE

AND another point I would like to make- It would not be until a baby is old enough to show developmental delay for them to know that the H1N1 vaccine has had any effect on the fetus ! Normally when a baby is 9-12 months old.

COME ON PEOPLE.

Here is the CLINICALTRIALS.GOV H1N1 Vaccine trials in Pregnant Women link-

Boy rushed to hospital after swine flu jab | War On You: Breaking Alternative News

http://waronyou.com/topics/boy-rushed-t ... e-flu-jab/

The safety of Northern Ireland’s swine flu vaccination programme was called into question today by the parent of a young special needs pupil who ended up in hospital just hours after getting the jab.

Anne Marie Fletcher said she feared her 15-year-old son Rhys was going to die as she rushed him to hospital less than 24 hours after receiving the swine flu vaccine.

The teenager fell seriously ill after receiving the injection, along with thousands of other pupils across Northern Ireland last Friday. He was later diagnosed with swine flu.

“My husband drove us to Antrim (Area Hospital) and I sat in the back with Rhys,” she told the Belfast Telegraph.

“By this stage he was going into spasms. He couldn’t bend his fingers. I was absolutely terrified.

“He was rambling and becoming incoherent. I honestly thought he was going to die in the back of the car.

“He kept saying he wanted to sleep but I wouldn’t dare let him close his eyes because I was frightened that if I did he would never wake up.”

The Public Health Agency, the organisation tasked with managing Northern Ireland’s response to the swine flu pandemic, has stated clearly that anyone suffering from flu-like symptoms should remain at home and contact their GP by telephone.

The experience of the Fletcher family from Carrickfergus calls into question whether Government protocols regarding the handling of swine flu are being followed. It is the latest episode to shake public confidence after the family of a Londonderry teenager who died with the virus was not informed she had it until after her funeral.

Some 2,500 children in over 20 special schools for severe learning disability across Northern Ireland were offered the vaccine last week after four pupils died with the virus this month.

The Fletcher family’s ordeal began on Friday, several hours after 15-year-old Rhys received the swine flu vaccine at Hillcroft Special School in Newtownabbey.

“I was concerned about Rhys having the vaccination but after what I heard about the four children with special needs dying after contracting swine flu I thought it was better to be safe than sorry,” Mrs Fletcher said.

“I took him into school on Friday and he had his injection. A few hours later he started complaining of having a sore arm. He also had a temperature and he was starting to cough. During the night he started to complain that he felt sick. He was up and down most of the night retching.”

Mrs Fletcher contacted the out-of-hours GP service and was told to bring Rhys to Whiteabbey Hospital. She expressed concerns about bringing him to a hospital in light of his symptoms.

“He was in a lot of discomfort and a lot of pain. He was surrounded by people and they were objecting about him being in the waiting area. When we were eventually seen we were told he had to be referred to Antrim Area Hospital.

“My husband drove us to Antrim and I sat in the back with Rhys. By this stage he was going into spasms. He couldn’t bend his fingers, I was absolutely terrified. He was rambling and becoming incoherent. I honestly thought he was going to die in the back of the car.

“He kept saying he wanted to sleep but I wouldn’t dare let him close his eyes because I was frightened that if I did he would never wake up.”

Following treatment at Antrim Area Hospital the teenager’s condition improved enough for him to be discharged, but several hours after returning home the family received a telephone call from the Public Health Agency.

“They mentioned that Rhys may have swine flu when he was in Antrim Hospital but then they said he didn’t have it and he was probably suffering from a reaction from the injection, although they said they couldn’t be sure,” continued Mrs Fletcher.

“We took Rhys home and just before 11pm we got a call from a doctor with the Public Health Agency who wanted to discuss Rhys’ symptoms. They phoned again about 11.10pm and asked me to bring Rhys to Dalriada (out of hours GP) to be tested for swine flu, but I told them I wasn’t taking him anywhere at that time of night.

“They phoned back later and said there was no urgency and we could bring in the morning, but I refused. I told them I thought people with suspected swine flu shouldn’t be taken to hospital and they said it was OK because they could see him in a private room.

“I was disgusted at this point and said I wouldn’t bring Rhys to hospital, so eventually a district nurse came out on Sunday to take some swabs. We got a phone call later on to say he had swine flu.”

Mrs Fletcher said she was horrified at the treatment her son has received and that she has serious concerns that countless other people have been exposed to the virus as a result.

“Rhys is still very listless and I’m worried he could become badly affected by the swine flu. He is on Tamiflu now but I’m also worried he could suffer side-effects from that as well.”

The Department of Health said it could not comment on operational matters, while the Public Health Agency did not provide a response.

A spokesman from the Northern Health Trust said: “We appreciate that this issue was brought to our attention. We cannot discuss individual cases but there is an agreed protocol for dealing with cases such as this. A number of agencies were involved and clearly the protocol was not followed as it should have been.

“We appreciate the concerns that this will have caused and we will examine the circumstances with our partner organisations to make sure this does not happen again.”

Meanwhile, the Health Minister has announced that the swine flu vaccination is to be offered to staff who provide personal care for pupils at special schools here.

The vaccination programme for children with complex special needs was carried out last week.

“The staff who provide personal care to the vulnerable children within special schools for severe learning disability are doing similar work as frontline health and social care workers. Therefore I believe that this move will further protect this vulnerable group of children and young people. I have asked the Public Health Agency to make arrangements to offer vaccine to this group of staff as quickly as possible,” Michael McGimpsey said.
Your questions answered
How can we be sure these new vaccines are safe and effective?

Pandemrix and Celvapan are both licensed vaccines. Similar vaccines containing another flu virus strain (H5N1) have been clinically tested in trials involving over 5,000 people. When it licensed the vaccines the European Commission carefully considered all the evidence and recommended that they could be used. The vaccine is not live and cannot cause swine flu. The trial and approval process has been quick with the first trials only starting over the summer. But this fast-tracking is not unusual for flu vaccines.
Are there any side-effects?

All vaccinations can produce side-effects such as redness, soreness and swelling at the site of the injection. Flu vaccines can cause symptoms like fever, headache and muscle aches, but they are much milder than the flu itself and only last a day or so.
Who can’t have the swine flu vaccine

There are only a few people who cannot have the swine flu vaccine. The vaccines should not be given to anyone who has had a severe allergic reaction to a previous dose of the vaccine.
What about people who suffer from egg allergies?

Pandemrix is prepared in hens’ eggs in the same way that seasonal flu vaccines are. It should not be given to people who have had a confirmed anaphylactic reaction after being exposed to egg products.

US: NY Governor Paterson declares swine flu emergency

Via AuburnPub.com: Paterson declares swine flu emergency. Excerpt:

Gov. David Paterson declared a state of emergency, saying a recent rise in swine flu cases has created a "disaster" and that certain provisions of state law needed to be set aside to get people vaccinated as quickly as possible.

The executive order Thursday means that far more health care professionals -- including dentists, dental hygienists, podiatrists, pharmacists, midwives and physicians assistants -- will be permitted to administer swine flu and seasonal flu vaccines with only brief training.

The declaration will help avoid overwhelming hospitals, clinics and other health care facilities with swine flu cases, according to Paterson's order.

It also allows health centers in schools, which have been particularly hard hit, to vaccinate children and adults.

UncoverTheNews.com » Surprising powers could be granted if flu threat worsens

WASHINGTON – So far, the H1N1 or swine flu virus is not a killer on par with the Spanish flu of 1918, but if that changes, local leaders have the power to take steps that might surprise you.

“The powers that are given to governors and often to the chief executives of localities are truly extraordinary,” says Michael Greenberger, founder and director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security at the University of Maryland. “They virtually can constitute martial law.”

He says in Maryland, if there’s a public health emergency, the governor can order residents to receive vaccines, even if they don’t want them.

US: California nurses will stay on the job
Via KCBS.com: California Nurses Won't Strike. Excerpt:

A California nurses' union says its members will not strike. Union officials say swine flu protections have been written into new contracts with the state's largest hospital system.

The California Nurses Association had threatened a one-day strike last week at 32 Catholic Healthcare West hospitals if state and federal swine flu protection recommendations weren't written into their contracts.

Tenets of the new contract include close monitoring of workplace safety conditions and broad availability of protective gear.

USDA finds pandemic H1N1 in Indiana commercial swine

USDA finds more show pigs with H1N1 flu virus
Thursday, 29 Oct 2009 07:27pm EDT

By Christopher Doering

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The pandemic H1N1 influenza virus has been found for the first time in a commercial swine herd, the U.S. Agriculture Department said on Monday.

The sick herd was found in Indiana, the USDA said, noting both the pigs and their caretakers have fully recovered from the virus, commonly called swine flu. USDA said the Indiana facility has continued its routine processing practices because it is safe for swine that recover from influenza viruses to be slaughtered.

A USDA spokesman said it could not release the city, name of the facility or the size of the herd where the pandemic H1N1 virus was found "in order to ensure continued high levels of participation in swine surveillance efforts, and because this is not a food safety or public health risk."

The human form of the new H1N1 virus, which emerged in March and was declared a pandemic in June, is circulating the globe. Researchers at The Centers for Disease Control estimated last week that as many as 5.7 million people in the United States have been infected so far, with at least 1,300 deaths.

Last week, USDA said six pigs shown at the Minnesota State Fair in September had been confirmed as having had the pandemic H1N1 flu virus. The USDA found the virus in the first U.S. hog on October 19 -- one of the six positives from the fair.

"It's expected that pigs will get this particular flu strain just like pigs every year get the flu," said Dave Warner of the National Pork Producers Council, who added he would not be surprised to see more cases of pandemic H1N1 in U.S. hogs.

"It's just not an issue. It's not unexpected," he said.

World health officials have stressed the flu cannot be contracted from eating pork.

But the virus has affected pork trade, most notably to China, which has banned U.S. pork since May because of the outbreak in humans. Chinese officials said last Thursday they plan to lift the ban.

The USDA's finding appeared to have little impact on hog markets on Monday as analysts had forecast for some time that humans could transmit the flu to hogs.

Figures... Indiana is a Swine, So Bean (as we call it here), Corn, agriculture state. Outside Indianapolis (and other large cities) its Pig farms and crop fields horizon to horizon. So much so the late Hoosier (Indiana nickname) Comic Red Skelton once remarked.

"How you do know the Fall Indiana State Fair has started again in Indianapolis? You can smell it down wind in Ohio!" :crylaugh

Government Appoints Task Force To Handle H1N1 Vaccine Propaganda
Published on 11-02-2009

By Paul Joseph Watson



The U.S. government has appointed what the media is ludicrously billing as an “independent” group of health advisors whose job it will be to whitewash adverse reactions to the swine flu vaccine and “explain” them to the public as mere coincidence.

Authorities have been busier honing their propaganda about the H1N1 inoculation program than they have dealing with the actual rollout of the vaccine. A $16 million dollar campaign to coerce Americans into taking the shot is falling flat on its face with increasing numbers rejecting the necessity to take the shot amidst concerns about its side-effects.

Health authorities have been desperately pushing the notion that the vaccine is safe as part of a gargantuan PR campaign, without explaining why well-connected members of the elite have had special access to an additive-free version of the shot that doesn’t contain ingredients like mercury and squalene that are contained in the public version.

http://www.infowars.com/german-chancell ... gredients/

As a result of the dangers of the H1N1 vaccine becoming widely known, authorities are moving to get out ahead of the story by acknowledging that millions of health problems in the aftermath of a vaccination campaign will be blamed on the vaccine, citing the 1976 swine flu debacle when the shot proved far deadlier than the actual virus.

Back In September, Reuters reported on how public health officials were expecting “an avalanche of so-called adverse event reports, which are reports of death, illness or other health trauma,” in the two weeks after people receive the vaccine.

http://www.reuters.com/article/newsOne/ ... A720090916

“We are going to be overwhelmed with potential events,” said Mike Osterholm, a public health expert at the University of Minnesota.

Authorities therefore resolved to dismiss any connection to the swine flu shots a host of heart attacks, strokes and miscarriages that “will be blamed on the H1N1 vaccine”.

Now the government has accelerated these efforts by appointing a group of “independent” experts to “track the vaccine’s safety,” according to an Associated Press report.

http://www.reflector.com/features/new-g ... 31806.html

The claim that the group is “independent” is a complete misnomer. How can a group appointed by and dictated its brief by the government be considered “independent”?

In addition, the group will be headed up by none other than Dr. Marie McCormick of the Harvard School of Public Health. McCormick and her affiliated organizations have routinely issued reports over the past 10 years supporting the government’s position on the link between vaccines and autism, dismissing a correlation entirely despite overwhelming evidence that contradicts this notion. McCormick has been widely criticized by other health experts for her dogged denial of the link between vaccines and autism.

http://www.blisstree.com/articles/dr-ma ... ubpoenaed/
http://admin.blacklistednews.com/autism ... rease.html

So far from being “independent,” the group is in fact appointed by the government and lead by one of the government’s chief whitewash proponents in the context of vaccine dangers and side-effects.

The rollout of the vaccine has been limited to far fewer people than the government originally intended, partly due to a supply shortage and partly because more than half of Americans have refused to take the shot. The government’s efforts to dismiss concerns about side-effects will likely kick into high gear when more batches of the vaccine become available.

The media is framing concerns about side-effects by concentrating on health problems in the immediate aftermath of the vaccination, thereby providing them with the ammunition to dismiss concerns about side-effects altogether if few cases of death or injury occur. However, the real concerns about the dangers of vaccines do not revolve around skin rashes or minor ailments, they relate to the longer term effect of the build-up of toxic mercury in the body as well as squalene and the cancerous animal cells that are admittedly contained in the vaccine. Symptoms could therefore take months or even years to manifest, enough time for a connection to the swine flu shot to be forgotten in the public eye. Expect this to be exploited to the maximum by the “independent” experts the government has appointed to whitewash dangers associated with the vaccine

Employees are being told they have to receive the Swine Flu vaccine or lose their jobs.

Schools are giving children the vaccine against their parents wishes.

Now it has been revealed in this CBS report that the federal government is withholding data that shows a large percentage of people who have been reported as having the Swine Flu did not in fact have it. http://www.brasschecktv.com/
