What swine flu reveals about the culture of fear

When Margaret Chan, head of the World Heath Organization, raised the pandemic threat alert from four to five in response to the swine flu outbreak, she had no qualms about using the language of fear. ‘All of humanity is under threat,’ she declared. When, in the future, historians look back on this performance of fear, and on the swine flu panic more broadly, they will surely ask themselves: was Chan speaking as a public health official or as a moral entrepreneur?

Flu overhyped? Some say officials “cried swine”

Quincy Patriot Ledger

05/07/09

Did government health officials ‘cry swine’ when they sounded the alarm on what looked like a threatening new flu? The so-far mild swine flu outbreak has many people saying all the talk about a devastating global epidemic was just fear-mongering hype. But that’s not how public health officials see it, calling complacency the thing that keeps them up at night...

AstraZeneca in US talks over swine flu vaccine as profits leap 40%

Tom Bawden

AstraZeneca is in talks with health authorities in America about developing a vaccine for swine flu.

JAKARTA - INDONESIAN Heath Minister Siti Fadilah Supari said on Tuesday the deadly swine flu virus could have been man-made, as she urged calm over its spread around the world.

Swine Flu Martial Law Bill Clears In Massachusetts
The new Senate version would allow the public health commissioner — in a public health emergency — to close or evacuate buildings, enter private property for investigations, and quarantine individuals.

What seems suspicious to me is the hybrid origin of the viral fragments found in H1N1 influenza. According to reports in the mainstream media (which has no reason to lie about this particular detail), this strain of influenza contains viral code fragments from:

• Human influenza
• Bird Flu from North America
• Swine flu from Europe
• Swine flu from Asia

This is rather astonishing to realize, because for this to have been a natural combination of viral fragments, it means an infected bird from North America would have had to infect pigs in Europe, then be re-infected by those some pigs with an unlikely cross-species mutation that allowed the bird to carry it again, then that bird would have had to fly to Asia and infected pigs there, and those Asian pigs then mutated the virus once again (while preserving the European swine and bird flu elements) to become human transmittable, and then a human would have had to catch that virus from the Asian pigs -- in Mexico! -- and spread it to others. (This isn't the only explanation of how it could have happened, but it is one scenario that gives you an idea of the complexity of such a thing happening).

There is no excuse. According to the scientific network PROMED, Baxter International Inc. in Austria "unintentionally contaminated samples with the bird flu virus that were used in laboratories in 3 neighbouring countries, raising concern about the potential spread of the deadly disease". Austria, Germany, Slowenia and the Czech Republic - these are the countries in which labs were hit with dangerous viruses. Not by bioterrorist commandos, but by Baxter. In other words: One of the major global pharmaceutical players seems to have lost control over a virus which is considered by many virologists to be one of the components leading some day to a new pandemic. Was it H5N1, or the even more risky H3N2? And what about the BSL3-Standards Baxter is operating when handling the viruses? What happened? And who failed? by Vlad Georgescu

Dr Horowitz: Mexican”Swine” Flu Made in Lab

In this special report at YouTube, medical researcher Dr Leonard horowitz2Horowitz says that the evidence the Mexican “swine” flu was created in a laboratory and released deliberately is undeniable. Link to the text related to this here.

Author of Emerging Viruses: AIDS And Ebola: Nature, Accident or Intentional?, Horowitz says the swine-bird-human flu strain, reported to be found first in Mexico in late-March 2009, could have only come from Dr James S. Robertson and his colleagues in association with the US Centre for Disease Control and vaccine manufacturer Novavax, Inc, which was ready to profit from the release he says. Nobody else takes H5N1 Asian-flu infected chickens, takes them to Europe, extracts their DNA, combines their proteins with H1N1 viruses from the 1918 Spanish flu isolate, additionally mixes in some swine-flu genes from pigs, then reverse engineers them to infect humans, he said.

A report in Medical News Today revealed that Novavax was working on a vaccine for an avian flu pandemic in 2005 and an article at News-Medical.net mentioned they began human clinical testing of a pandemic flu vaccine in August 2007. Also, in a news release dated the 14th of April 2009, shortly after the first reported case of “swine flu”, their vaccine was being touted as being able to protect against the “highly pathogenic H5N1 avian influenza strain.” Stated the Vice President of Vaccine Development for Novavax in this report, the vaccine “has significant implications for both pre-pandemic and pandemic preparedness.”
