- Welcome to the dawning of the "Age of Endless Fear."
If you have any doubt, turn on the television. According to the mainstream
news, cells of Al Quaida are metastasizing daily. Keep vigilant folks.
Keep your eyes peeled for non white people eating candy bars. After all,
those innocent looking M&Ms may, in reality, be WMD's.
- The computer offers no refuge. Sure, I get my daily share
of "Hi, how are you?" letters; maybe even a joke or two and an
assortment of dancing smiley faced icons. Frequently, there's a gullibility
test from Nigeria as another Nigerian plea for money gets lost on its way
to my spam folder. But ultimately, this relatively innocuous collection
of missives drown in the sea of the ominous, a sea of impending doom.
- Yes, my inbox is awash with feargrams. Have you bought
your gas mask yet? Keep those flashlights in good working condition. Don't
forget to have one of those radios that you can crank. And, while you are
maxing out your credit card, be sure to purchase your survival kit. There's
more to living than just water, canned goods and toilet paper, you know.
- My inbox informs me that we are on the verge of World
War lll. My mail alerts me that we are being poisoned by our pharmaceutical
corporations. Each day a new, formerly considered safe, pill joins the
parade of malevolent meds. The other day, Tylenol took its turn, as evidence
was released that the once thought harmless drug may raise blood pressure.
Directions: Adults, take two for a painless stroke.
- Natural (or unnatural) disasters threaten constantly.
And, of course, I receive a large dose of warnings about biological, chemical
and germ warfare. Lately, there seems to be a great deal of squawking about
The Avian Flu.
- Call me foolish. Warn me about my lack of preparedness,
but I just may have reached my saturation point. "The bird flu"
may not be the past tense of "the bird flies,." however, keep
in mind that "the bird flies" rhymes with "the government
- On Wednesday, August 17th, Jon Rappoport of No More Fake
News, was on Alex Jones' show. Jon talked about how the coming bird flu
pandemic may indeed be a cover for something else.
- Are you aware that, to date, there have been only 61
deaths from this dreaded, soon to be, pandemic? And yet, the press says
that billions will die. Pass me my calculator. Math was never my strong
suit, but something doesn't add up.
- Mr. Rappoport informs us that this cagey epidemic could
very well be used for something else. Is he right?
- Germs are inherently unpredictable. You cannot predict
how far they spread and how many people will be affected. And yet, since
most people are afraid of germs, a "pandemic" lends itself to
a cover story. The question remains, what, in actuality, are our leaders
gearing up for? Could it be a chemical attack?
- It is not a far fetched notion that the people intent
on depopulation might use The Avian Flu hoax to stage multiple chemical
incidents. Chemicals are much more controllable than biologicals and who
would be the wiser?
- The word "depopulation" is not in most people's
vocabulary and the mere use of it puts a huge sign on the speaker, "conspiracy
theorist occupies this body."
- And yet, it was none other then Dr. Henry Kissinger who
wrote: "Depopulation should be the highest priority of U.S. foreign
policy towards the Third World."
- (after you, Doc)
"The secret (now declassified) paper NSSM 200, 'Implications of Worldwide
Population Growth For U.S. Security and Overseas Interests,' also known
as the Scowcroft Document (authored by the CFR's Brent Scowcroft), gives
insight into U.S. government plans for population reduction internationally,
linking these plans to goals that have very little to do with alleviating
human suffering, and everything to do with the maximization of profit."
"Population is a political problem. Once population is out of control
it requires authoritarian government, even fascism, to reduce it"
- Thomas Ferguson, the Latin American case officer for
the State Department's Office of Population Affairs (OPA), stated, "
The professionals aren't interested in lowering population for humanitarian
reasons. ... We look at resources and environmental constraints. We look
at our strategic needs, and we say that this country must lower its population-or
else we will have trouble
- "Civil wars are somewhat drawn-out ways to reduce
population, the Office of Population Affairs official added. "The
quickest way to reduce population is through famine, like in Africa or
through disease like the Black Death."
- And now, we have The Avian Flu winging its way west.
- "But have no fear," our rulers tell us. "Help
is on its way." There's talk of a vaccine to combat this deadly Avian
flu and we can thank Chiron. Chiron Vaccines is the world's fifth largest
vaccines company and has its headquarters in Oxford, UK, with facilities
located throughout Europe, the US and Asia
- Does the name Chiron sound familiar? That's because
they were the wonderful folks who, not long ago, brought us a batch of
contaminated flu vaccine. Isn't it comforting to know that help is on its
- Stories come and go. People have forgotten all about
poor OJ as he tirelessly searches the golf courses up and down the West
Coast for his murdered wife Nicole's killer. And so, it is not surprising
that most "inquiring minds" have not devoted much gray matter
to the story of the dead microbiologists. In fact, many people are not
even aware that over 40 microbiologists have died since 9/11. We may never
know why, but one thing is certain. It does not take Hercule Poirrot to
figure out that there has been a mass murder of microbiologists. Could
they have known too much? Could their wisdom have become a detriment to
those in charge? Will we ever know? http://www.rense.com/general48/moredead.htm
- As we gear ourselves up for The Avian Flu, I cannot help
but recall the Ebola scare. How many people did Ebola actually kill? Records
show that a couple of hundred died. Reportedly, these were people whose
immune systems were already compromised. I guess the movie "Outbreak"
wasn't prophetic after all.
- Fear, fear, fear. It's enough to send the sale of Xanax
- Many people are desperately scanning maps to see if relocation
is the answer. Is there a place that is terrorist, tsunami, earthquake,
hurricane and germ free? If you find one, please invite me for a visit.
Until then, however, I will stay put. You see, friends, my occasionally
accurate intuition tells me that there is nowhere to run and maybe, at
the end of the day, there is nothing to run from.
- "Where do you live?" People innocently ask.
- "I live in Suffern, New York." I respond to
what seems like a reasonable question.
- "Are you suffering in Suffern?" (Oh no. Not
that tired old line again)
- "Now, I am," is a reply I keep to myself.
- Suffern is a quiet little village filled with many escapees
from New York City. It is only an hour away from the "concrete jungle,"
and yet it is clean and green. I left the city many years ago, when high
rents told me it was time to relocate.
- Life is much easier here. I awaken to the sound of the
birds rather than the fire engines. I have made friends with the trees,
the rabbits and the squirrels. There are beautiful mountain trails inviting
my feet. The city may be a fun place to visit, but no longer would I want
to live there.
- Today I took a walk at my favorite retreat. It is called
the Ramapo Reservation and it is my sanctuary. The trees provide me with
shade to shelter me from the heat. A variety of animals greet me as I walk
around the lake. I sit quietly by the stream as my thoughts disappear in
- The Ramapo Reservation whispers in my ear. Our planet
abounds with beauty. For a brief time, I believe that all is right with
the world. For a brief time, I remember.
