Swine Flu Shot Propaganda Goes Into Overdrive

Despite the fact that the H1N1 virus has proven far less deadly than regular seasonal flu

Paul Joseph Watson
Wednesday, October 14, 2009

The establishment’s propaganda drive to convince everyone to take the swine flu shot has gone into overdrive, surpassing any previous effort in the domain of public health and stoking suspicions about the motivations of pharmaceutical giants, especially in light of the fact that the H1N1 virus is far less deadly than the regular seasonal flu.

Pharmaceutical corporations are reaping obscene profits as a result of the media fearmongering behind the swine flu outbreak, despite the fact that the H1N1 virus has killed far less people that the seasonal flu.

Lawsuit Filed to Halt Swine Flu Vaccine Distribution

by NWV News

WASHINGTON – With the U.S. Food and Drug Administration scheduled to begin nationwide delivery this week of swine flu vaccine to 90,000 government-approved locations, attorney James Turner filed a complaint Friday in federal court in the District of Columbia for a Temporary Restraining Order to halt the distribution, licensing and use of four controversial vaccines -- including their use under an existing Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) -- until there has been adequate safety testing and a full opportunity for public hearings.........

Obama’s national service corps

Albuquerque Libertarian Examiner
by Kent McManigal


Forced ’service,’ to individuals or to ‘the country,’ is slavery. Anyone who advocates forced ’service’ is advocating evil. They can dress it up in red, white, and blue and call it ‘patriotism,’ or they can wrap it in warm-fuzzies and say it is for the ‘common good,’ but slavery and collectivism under any guise is the same horror...

80,000 is the high number of troops options in McChrystal’s request

ABC News


Among three different troop options currently before the President and his national security team, General Stanley McChrystal, the commander of US forces in Afghanistan, as first reported here, favors the middle option, which recommends an increase of some 40,000 more troops. A source familiar with the document says that’s the minimum McChrystal believes is needed for a chance for success in Afghanistan. Although the debate is really about the middle option, there is a much higher number included in the McChrystal options. Other sources who have seen the request say the highest number of troops requested is 80,000...

Backdoor escalation

by Justin Raimondo


If the Nobel committee was attempting to preemptively block a further escalation of the Afghan war by giving the prize in anticipation of future actions — actions they hoped would be motivated by a desire to live up to the award — they were too late, and their efforts too little. Because Obama — in addition to the 21,000 combat troops he has already announced he’s sending to the Afghan front — has quietly added 13,000 more ’support’ troops to the mix, and there are plenty more where that came from. For an administration in which virtually every public announcement and initiative involves a careful manipulation of language, this kind of craftiness is a key tool in keeping the public hazy about what exactly is going on in Afghanistan...

Pity the imperialists

Campaign For Liberty
by Jacob G. Hornberger


Pity the imperialists. What do they do? They must realize that the longer they continue occupying Iraq and Afghanistan, the more they weaken the Empire. Hey, they don’t call Afghanistan the ‘graveyard of empires’ for nothing. America’s imperialists are discovering what imperialists throughout history have discovered: empires are costly. This one is no exception. Military spending on Afghanistan and Iraq and the rest of the Empire all over the world continues to soar out of control...


The New Republic
by AJ Rossmiller


The situation in Afghanistan increasingly looks like Iraq did not too long ago. Not the actual political or military circumstances, of course, but the analysis and commentary. Phrases like ‘We’re entering a decisive period’ and ‘It’s now or never’ are being tossed around ominously as the debate over troop increases rages. One can hardly read an op-ed without being told that the situation is dire and that this is a critical time, perhaps even our Last Chance to Get It Right. Most notably, the report produced by General Stanley McChrystal announced that ‘the short-term fight will be decisive.’ There is not a single Afghanistan myth more prevalent or more specious than this one. To be at a ‘critical juncture’ implies that one side or the other is poised to decisively gain the upper hand and therefore to win. But the situation in Afghanistan is almost the exact opposite of that...

Obama fails to win Nobel prize in economics

by Tom Bemis


In a decision as shocking as Friday’s surprise peace prize win, President Obama failed to win the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences Monday. While few observers think Obama has done anything for world peace in the nearly nine months he’s been in office, the same clearly can’t be said for economics. The president has worked tirelessly since even before his inauguration to wrest control of the U.S. economy from failed free markets, and the evil CEOs who profit from them, and to turn it over to wise, fair and benevolent bureaucrats...

The Prince of Peace

Strike the Root
by B.R. Merrick


What is clear to me is that we mustn’t wait for prizes. We must walk away from these people, and throw their trophies in the trash. The only way to effectively bring about a revolution for the betterment of mankind is to reach the individual. The message is simple: You are freedom. You are peace. You are love. You are truth. You mustn’t wait for anyone else. You mustn’t be afraid. You mustn’t worry that mass murderers are continually lauded as bringers of peace. It will continue. But we needn’t continue along with it. They’ve set the table, but what they’re serving is rancid leftovers. Walk away. It will feel better when you do it in your own way, not the way some charismatic leader tells you to. If you are willing, you are The Prince of Peace’...

Liz Cheney Launches Group to "Keep America Safe"

CBS News


Like her father, former Vice President Dick Cheney, Elizabeth Cheney doesn’t think highly of President Obama’s policies. And now she has a new organization, Keep America Safe, dedicated to pressing her argument. ‘Like a lot of Americans, we have watched with concern and dismay as the Obama administration has cut defense spending, wavered on the war in Afghanistan, and launched investigations into Americans serving on the front lines of the war on terror, while at the same time expanding legal protections for the terrorists that plot to attack this country,’ Cheney writes in an opening statement, which is also signed by fellow board members Debra Burlingame and William Kristol.

When Columbus and his sailors came ashore, carrying swords, speaking oddly, the Arawaks ran to greet them, brought them food, water, gifts. He later wrote of this in his log.
