- I was in the military during the first swine flu scare
in 1976. At the time it became policy that all soldiers would be vaccinated
for swine flu. As a medical officer I refused and almost faced a court
martial, but the military didn't want the bad publicity. Despite the assurance
by all the experts in virology, including Dr. Sabin, the epidemic never
- What did materialize were 500 cases of Gullian-Barre
paralysis, including 25 deaths-not due to the swine flu itself, but as
a direct result of the vaccine. At the time President Gerald Ford, on advice
from the CDC, called for vaccination of the entire population of the United
- Today, some 33 years later, we are hearing the same cries
of alarm from a similar lineup of virology experts. The pharmaceutical
companies are busy designing a vaccine for the swine flu in hope that this
administration will make the vaccine mandatory before another vaccine-related
disaster can ruin their party.
- And as before, a number of equally qualified experts
are calling for calm, based on a number of carefully conducted studies.
To no one's surprise, they too are being ignored by the media and government
- According to science reports, this current strain of
flu is H1N1. It can be forcibly inoculated into pigs, but it has been shown
not to spread among the pig population. This means that the danger of a
swine-based epidemic is small.
- There are several strains of this flu virus however,
including H1N1, H1N2, H3N1, H3N2 and H2N3. What the science has shown is
that when the virus passes through the pig, it becomes less virulent-that
is, it is less likely to cause serious disease in people. With each passage,
it becomes even weaker.
- Since this is not the answer that the pseudo-scientists
wanted, they next announced that it is "possible" that the pigs
could be infected with both the bird flu (strain H5N1) and the swine flu
(strain H1N1), resulting in a mutant, highly virulent strain that could
lead to a pandemic.
- Note this is pure speculation and that no scientist has
ever performed this trick. It is purely hypothetical-like global warming.
CDC virologists claim that in the past they performed a similar virological
trick, but they never published their results and thus have kept the data
close to the vest.
- In science, especially medical science, speculation is
taboo. But, politicized scientists perform this bit of smoke and mirrors
all the time. So, you may ask, "What about all the people dying in
- Overcrowding, poor nutrition and overall poor immunity,
all of which are indigenous to Mexico, are a certain prescription for death
from almost any infection. [Note that despite 46 cases of this very same
flu in the United States there have been no deaths. This is because Americans,
comparatively, have better nutrition and medical care.]
- Like SARS and bird flu before it, this swine flu scare
is a lot of nonsense. Just take your high dose vitamin D3 (5000 IU a day),
eat a healthy diet and take a few immune boosting supplements (such as
beta-1, 3/1, 6 glucan) and you will not have to worry about this flu.
- My fear is that this outbreak is bio-engineered. So I
am not so optimistic that it will not become deadly in a large scale way.
If this is strictly a 'normal' flu and not man made weapon, Dr. Blaylock's
opinion cannot be faulted. He is totally right when it comes to all the
new swine flu vaccines being rushed out by Big Pharma. His experience
in the 1976 swine flu outbreak should serve as a stringent warning. Patrick
Wood and Dr. Blaylock comments:
- Are globalist fear-mongers driving the media to panic
the public into universal healthcare solutions? Or federally-mandated vaccinations?By
definition, a "pandemic" is an epidemic that is geographically
widespread. Fear-mongers are always careful to add the innuendo that millions
of people could and probably will die, as in the Spanish Flu pandemic of
1918 that killed between 20 and 100 million people worldwide.
- Excuse me, but how does the death of even a few hundred
equate to 20 million? Mexico, not the usual Southeast Asia, is the origin
of the latest flu outbreak. It has spread in limited numbers to several
continents. Almost all of the deaths, limited as they are, are in Mexico.
The ratio of deaths to infections is very small.
- Again, how does this outbreak even remotely qualify as
a pandemic? Answer: It does not! Scientists and virus researchers are baffled
because the genetic makeup of the virus contains elements of human, swine
and bird flu from three geographic regions: North America, Europe and Asia.
Until now, this has been unknown in nature, but not theoretically impossible.
(see New flu combines pig, bird, human virus (http://www.news.com.au/story/0,27574,25379334-401,00.htm)
and Mexico Seeks to Stop Spread of Deadly Flu (http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=103459566)
- Because of its unique genetic makeup, this writer proposes
calling it the "flying pig flu", or FPF, instead. This writer
is hardly qualified to write with authority about the scientific side of
viruses. However, after reading several authoritative papers on swine and
avian flu, several observations can be made.
- In the world of virus experts, there are two types of
researchers: Observers and Experimenters.
- Most researchers are highly trained scientific observers.
These "Sherlock Holmes" scientists examine the pathology of virus
development. Where did it originate? What animals or human were involved?
Did the infected humans handle animals? Are certain strains limited to
geography? You get the idea.
- Without good observers, we would know little about the
source or spread of different viral strains. There are several good Internet
resources where the findings of research observers are published. (For
instance, see H5N1 Ultimate News on mutation) - (http://bluefeeling.typepad.com/h5n1_grippe_aviaire/2006/05/swine_to_human_.html)
- We should be thankful for astute observers who can untangle
mysteries that would otherwise not be understood.
- A minority of researchers are experimenters. This group
is worrisome. Experimenters establish their playground in trying to create
different types of viruses in order to measure their effect on test animals.
- Such was the case at Baxter AG, when such an experiment
was "accidentally" released as a live virus in a vaccine distributed
to 18 countries. (See Baxter: Product contained live bird flu virus).
In this case, the live H5N1 virus (avian flu) was combined with the much
more contagious (human) H3N2 virus.
- Experts say that it is almost impossible for Baxter to
make such a grievous error by accident. Czech newspapers, where the story
was originally broken, suggest it was a rogue employee or a mole that purposely
mixed the virus' together, but nothing has been proven as yet. Baxter is
now under great suspicion that it is attempting to foment a pandemic that
would bring hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue to supply its normal
- Another example is the Center for Disease Control in
Atlanta, Georgia. In a 2004 report, CDC to mix avian, human flu viruses
in pandemic study, it was noted that,
- "The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
(CDC) will soon launch experiments designed to combine the H5N1 virus and
human flu viruses and then see how the resulting hybrids affect animals.
The goal is to assess the chances that such a "reassortant" virus
will emerge and how dangerous it might be."
- Critics worried that such a "franken-virus"
could itself cause a pandemic if it escaped from its creators. The CDC's
only response is that their facilities were more secure than others who
had experienced breaches of some sort in years past. Why would the CDC
risk world exposure to an artificially created virus? According to the
above report, it was done in the name of preparedness.
- As mentioned above, experimenters are a worrisome lot.
Real world experience indicates that they are generally overconfident in
their scientific prowess and in their abilities to contain the unpredictable
fruit of their experiments.
- There are some big problems with the current outbreak
of flying pig flu. If there has been foul play, it may never be brought
to light. Still, tough questions need to be asked:
- While it is not unknown for pigs to become infected with
the H5N1 virus, the result has always been a less-lethal and
less-contagious virus than avian flu by itself. Why is this epidemic so
- How would genetic code from three continents find its
way into a single strain in Mexico City?
- Is this virus an escaped experiment from a project gone
- If man-made and not accidentally released, then who released
it, and why?
- As we contemplate these questions, watch the stock prices
of major pharma companies skyrocket as they gear up to sell billions in
vaccines. Watch governments as they declare mandatory vaccination programs.
Watch the Obama administration as it railroads universal health care through
- Indeed, flying pig flu may be just the right
name for whatever is responsible for this particular flu outbreak. In the
meantime, we can reopen this case when pigs fly or when 10 million or so
people have died, whichever comes first.
