“Swine Flu Pandemic” Déjà vu
We’ve seen it all before
By now (hopefully), you are starting to think that there may be more to this year’s threatened “pandemic” than is fed to us by the compliant media and their Government buddies – good for you! In fact, we’ve seen the whole scenario before, with very little (if anything) to distinguish it from the current “threat”, and, more to the point, it was provably a complete fabrication.
In early 1976, a group of US soldiers was alleged to have been infected with a “deadly” new strain of flu. 1 Although there was absolutely NO evidence to connect the outbreak to pigs, it was quickly dubbed “Swine Flu”, and the combined efforts of the pharmaceutical lobby and the media sprung into action with the predictable hype. It didn’t take long for the fear-mongering to start, and it came, notably, from the supposed guardian of US efforts against bugs of all kinds, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
In his review of the affair, Professor Hiram Caton commented “The CDC’s vigilance systems were triggered. The new virus was thought to represent a major mutational shift in human influenza viruses. There was no immunity to it in the general population. Could it cause a national pandemic?” 2
Such was the scale of the hype that immediately, the “experts” were predicting a disaster on the scale of the 1918 flu epidemic, suggesting that millions could die (sound familiar?). 3
The response of the Ford Government was predictable and utterly consistent with all the other “scare” tactics - $135m was immediately made available for a “readily available” swine flu vaccine, and surprise, surprise, the ever-vigilant pharmaceutical industry just happened to create one in double-quick time. Unfortunately for them, although only one person, the first poor soldier to contract the “new strain” died of the actual flu, at least thousands were maimed or killed by the so called “vaccine” that was rushed out to combat it, eventually resulting in the refusal of insurers to pay for the “vaccine”. 4
In her exposé of the affair, vaccine historian Eleanor McBean sums it up thus:
“At the present time of writing, October 1976, a group of medical opportunists have taken upon themselves the dictatorial authority to declare the threat of a sweeping epidemic of swine flu which they said was similar to or related to the 1918 epidemic of Spanish influenza which wiped out 20,000,000 people worldwide.
This declaration was supposed to scare all the people into their vaccination centers to be shot full of experimental vaccine poisons, while they, the promoters, raked in the profits.
The arrangement was that $135,000,000 of the people’s money was for vaccine doses for all the 215 million people in this country, at 50 cents a shot…
So many people were killed and paralysed by the vaccine that the campaign had to be stopped.
The swine flu vaccine campaign was such an obvious fraud, with no epidemic – not even one authentic case of swine flu anywhere in the world – it makes us wonder about the sanity of the promoter.
Many people who saw through the fraud from the start tried to get warnings in the papers, on TV, and through other channels of communication, but the media turned a deaf ear.” 5
As further summarized by researcher Stephen Ransom 6
- “An epidemic was declared, for which there was no proof
- The flow of disinformation was brought to the public almost exclusively through the national media outlets which had magnified the situation to monstrous proportions
- A vaccine was swiftly proffered for the solution
- $135m was paid to pharmaceutical organisations who, with their close ties to the mainstream press, were the instigators of the fearsome headlines
- Minority voices, calling attention to the extreme fraud associated with the campaign, supplied the mainstream media with all the necessary information to expose the scam.
- The minority voices were completely ignored.”
Is this starting to sound familiar yet?
Well, lets end this section with a complete doosie of a fact related to the current “scare”. Under the directions of US Secretary of War, Donald Rumsfeld (he of the aspartame scandal) has been ordered, on behalf of the US Government, 100 MILLION doses of the controversial flu “treatment” Tamiflu, which AT BEST might reduce the duration of flu symptoms by up to 1.3 days 7 – whoopdee do! Worse, research shows that Tamiflu can actually make the severity of flu worse than doing nothing. 8
Now, Tamiflu is made by the mighty Roche pharmaceutical giant under licence from a little-known company called Gilead Sciences Inc., whose chairman (since 1997) is… drum roll please… a certain Donald Rumsfeld – NOW are you starting to see how this works?
The cost to the taxpayer of this little conflict of interest scam – a whopping $100 per dose, for a staggering payout of $10 Billion. Not a bad day’s work for rummy eh? And what has the mainstream press had to say about this utterly scandalous behaviour so completely against the public interest (apart from the law and any code of morals)?
Absolutely nothing. Nada. Zip.
Thank goodness for the free press!
