A spade is still a spade, no matter what you call it. http://www.phrases.org.uk/meanings/call-a-spade-a-spade.html)   A pig might be bacon and pork chops but it is still a pig.

WHO has a new designation for The Swine Fly Outbreak that is more politically correct,  user friendly, non- offending to Mexicans or to The Pork Industry. H1N1 influenza A., the swine flu virus originated in pigs, and has genes from human, bird and pig viruses. Scientists are trying to figure out how it jumped and mutated to humans. In the current outbreak, WHO says the virus is being spread from human to human, not from contact with infected pigs.

“The name of the flu led several countries to slap bans on imports of pork from Mexico and the United States, where the outbreak first appeared, and authorities in Egypt have ordered a cull of pigs. European Union health commissioner Androulla Vassiliou told reporters in Brussels yesterday the EC has “decided to call it novel flu from now on.” http://www.irishtimes.com/newspaper/breaking/2009/0430/breaking66.htm I hardly call this never before seen strain of flu that is spread by human contact, “novel”

“The scientific nomenclature assigned to the virus is a recognition that it causes influenza in humans.  According to the World Health Organization influenza viruses are grouped into three types, designated A,B, and C.  Influenza A and B viruses are of concern for human health and only influenza A viruses can cause pandemics. Components that make up the virus include subtypes.  Influenza A have 16 H subtypes and 9 N subtypes.  Pathogenicity (the capability to produce disease) sometimes is ascribed to the increased number in the subtype, but not always.  http://www.butasforme.com/2009/04/30/deciphering-the-name-change-from-swine-flu-to-ah1n1-virus/vfyg 

Contrary to labeling it H1N1, “Scientifically this is a swine virus,” said top virologist Dr. Richard Webby, a researcher at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis . Webby is director of the WHO Collaborating Center for Studies on the Ecology of Influenza Viruses in Lower Animals and Birds. He documented the spread a decade ago of one of the parent viruses of this strain in scientific papers. “It’s clearly swine,” said Henry Niman, president of Recombinomics, a Pittsburgh company that tracks how viruses evolve. “It’s a flu virus from a swine, there’s no other name to call it.”  http://freedomeden.blogspot.com/2009/05/swine-flu-h1n1-mexico-flu.html

In changing the name, does it impersonalize it?  Will it bring awareness that while this outbreak seems to have originated in Mexico, it is in fact a worldwide threat of near epic proportion. While not always accurate in naming the flu from it’s point of origin- Legionaries was from The American Legion conference, Asian Flu from Asia,  Swine Flu from Swine, Spanish Flu (1918-1919), Hong Kong Flu (1968-1969), Russian Flu (1977-1978), Beijing Flu (1993-1994), Sydney Flu (1998-1999).  Americans from America, Italians from Italy, the flu from Mexico- H1N1.  

WHO apparently is more worried about not hurting anyone’s feelings that working on how this virus mutated into humans and how to prevent it as it continues to raise it’s threat levels.  “The US Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) sent materials for a quick diagnostic test to Mexico so scientists there can quickly screen people for the new flu.  The centre’s Dr Richard Besser said test kits were also en route to health departments in all US states to speed up surveillance.” http://www.prisonplanet.com/mexico-encouraged-by-fall-in-new-flu-cases.htmlWhatever At the very least this should speed up identifying the pathogen whose numbers I would expect to rise with easier test tests in place; rather than having to send samples direct to the CDC.  Wonder how they accomplished manufacturing the test kits so rapidly and who manufactured them? 

Whatever you call it, a spade is still a spade and dead is dead.

Filed under- a flea on a camel’s ass is smarter, a Geneva lab has had Vials of “innocuous swine flu virus” explode on an intercity train, prompting police to stop passengers before departure.   A laboratory technician from a Geneva hospital had been transporting the vials on Monday evening from a veterinary institute in Zürich when they supposedly exploded on their own.  

“This virus is not dangerous to humans,” said Laurent Kaiser, head of the Geneva lab. “It is the same stock as the H1N1 virus but it has nothing in common with the strain spreading around the world.”  http://www.swissinfo.ch/eng/front.html?siteSect=105&ty=nd&ref=fb&sid=10627294  Stupid duck say what?  Nothing in common, so why detain passengers? 

Could this have been an intentional bio terrorism event or just plain stupidity? Could it happen again? Is this the first time that a strain of the H1N1 flu has been released- apparently unwittingly?

The designation swine flu, though carrying some original value, is bad for the pork industry, carrying the implication to some that eating cooked pork is unsafe, or a source for potential infection. And so, according to the New York Times, the term of choice for this form of influenza A has now become H1N1.  http://santitafarella.wordpress.com/2009/04/30/mexican-flu-swine-flu-or-h1n1-a-pandemic-gets-rebranded/:

H1N1- The same strain as on the train.  The rain in Spain stays mainly in the plain.  Not anymore.

BTW- WHAT GENEVA LAB?  CERN?

Got a little nose tickle? Here comes the big sneeze- Ahh chooo. Normally folks would say, “God Bless You” after a sneeze, now they forget all about blessing you and get the hell away fast, praying  they don’t get sick too. The World Health Organization has raised it’s threat classification of the swine flu outbreak to Phase Five, one step away from a worldwide pandemic.

VP Biden this morning said, “I wouldn’t go anywhere in confined places now,” on whether he would advise family members to use public transportation. see the video link at http://www.nbcnewyork.com/news/us_world/Swine-Flu-0428.html Mexico is  predominately Roman Catholic where people commonly attend church. http://countrystudies.us/mexico/61.htm  But forget about going to church this week in Mexico, “There is no safer place to protect yourself against catching swine flu than in your house,” Mexican President Felipe Calderon said, closing all non essential operations for five days.  http://www.fox8.com/news/nationworld/sns-ap-med-swine-flu,0,6402111.story 

During the 16th, 17th, 18th centuries, the idea was that death “had something to do with God’s will,” said Dr. Howard Markel, professor of the history of medicine and of pediatrics and communicable diseases at the University of Michigan Medical School in Ann Arbor.  The term influenza has religious, Italian origins. It was used to show that the influence of epidemics was “either of the stars or the devil,” Markel said. “During the Renaissance, epidemics were seen as an act of God.” ( http://abcnews.go.com/Health/ColdandFluNews/story?id=6104503&page=1)

Paul McFedries, author of “The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Weird Word Origins” notes that  “In 590 [A.D.], Pope Gregory I ordered the citizens of Rome to pray to fend off an outbreak of the Bubonic Plague. ,” “Since people of the day thought a sneeze was a symptom of the plague, they would say ‘God Bless You’ to the sneezer.” Another belief is that when one sneezes, their heart stops. Saying “God Bless You” is believed to make the sneezer return to life or make their heart continue to beat. The act of sneezing itself is viewed as positive or negative, depending on the story to which you subscribe. The positive explanation states that sneezing helps cleanse the body of evil spirits.  Contrary to that belief, a sneeze was also seen as a bad omen. People used to believe that your soul was thrown from your body during a sneeze. It is believed that the departure of one’s soul from you body left him or her unprotected from evil spirits. After sneezing, the body was susceptible to invasion by the Devil himself.”

I guess you’d have to define who the Devil is to believe the cause of this latest, never before seen mutation of the flu.   Mother Nature, the scientists, terrorists, farmers, governments, etc.? They could all have a hand in creating and preventing this near full blown pandemic.

Escalating fears in millions and prompting many to wear face masks, I wonder what about the simple handshake?

In public the handshake is a simple greeting and custom.  In the Roman Catholic church, the handshake is the sign of peace.  Custom dictates what used to be called the “the kiss of peace” and how it is exchanged in each country: a handshake, an embrace, words of peace, or other action.   St. Augustine in the 4th century: “After the Lord’s Prayer, say ‘Peace be with you.’ Christians then embrace one another with a holy kiss. This is the sign of peace.” http://www.cptryon.org/ask/ask/signpeace.html  The peace of Christ, really present on the altar, is also with all men- but no one knows where those hands have been.  Whatever germs they carry, so shall you.

The Pope, seeking an interest in peace said,  “From 8-15 May, I will make a pilgrimage to the Holy Land to ask the Lord, visiting the places sanctified by his passage on the earth, for his precious blessing of unity and peace for the Middle East and for all of mankind. I am counting on the spiritual support of all of you, and may God accompany me, support me, and bless with his Grace all those who I meet on my way,” said the Pope in an official statement. http://www.israel21c.org/bin/en.jsp?enDispWho=Articles%5El2547&enPage=BlankPage&enDisplay=view&enDispWhat=object&enVersion=0&enZone=Culture  What was it VP Biden said about gathering in public places and non essential travel? Want to shake the Pope’s hand? Kiss the ring?

Smithfield Foods, a world producer of pork products surely is looking for peace as well, issuing the following statements, ” We routinely administer flu vaccines to our herds in order to protect them from potential viruses and conduct monthly tests to examine the presence and identity of different flu strains,” adding, “we can pray that health officials and doctors around the world will find answers soon.”  I’d be curious to know what exact inoculations were given to the Mexican herd where the first reported death occurred near Oaxaca.

Not surprisingly, according to the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE), “It is not correct to call the current disease ‘swine influenza’. The virus that is circulating includes genetic components of human, avian and swine origin. The OIE proposed to refer to this new virus as ‘North American influenza’, using the same approach to nomenclature as used with the Asian influenza and Spanish influenza outbreaks that have occurred in the past.” http://www.smithfieldfoods.com/  Personally I like, The Aporkalypse or The Eye-Chiwawa Flu.

Bible prophecy and the grand scheme of God’s plan is is one-third of the Bible.  Yes, God loves his creations, even the pig.  If anything, I hope He intends to redeem and not destroy with this latest plague.  Awaiting Judgment, many have Bibles and legally registered guns in their homes to keep away any Devils - praying the flu does not come knocking on the door.

God Bless You.

The White House says President Barack Obama is being kept updated on the swine flu outbreak in Mexico as he gets set for yet another expensive TV appearance tonight, during Prime Time. 

Celebrating his 100th day in office, “Fox became the first broadcast network to turn down a request by President Barack Obama for time, opting to show its drama “Lie to Me” on Wednesday instead of the president’s prime-time news conference.” http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/04/27/fox-not-airing-obama-pres_n_191954.html  I guess there is freedom for the press after all.

So much for watching “Lost.”  Instead, Americans seem to be living in the lost land of The Department of Homeland Security and Janet Napolitano who are finally paying attention to the severity of the Swine Flu.  The Swine Flu in itself is not a conspiracy, it is real.  How the Swine Flu has evolved is another post.  My tin foil hat’s antennae are up though, and I have to wonder why the Obama Administration waited so long to get on the stick to begin to warn Americans of what was happening to our neighbors, and the flu’s ability to spread from person to person.

One week after Obama returned from Mexico, Felipe Solís, the director of Mexico’s National Anthropology Museum died- April 23rd.  He met Presidents Obama and Calderón at the museum!   Solís died apparently of a preexisting condition and not of Swine Flu. Really?  White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said The, “White House was not warned about the outbreak before the president’s stop in Mexico City, but said “there’s no reason to believe” Mexican officials “withheld any information. http://www.boston.com/news/nation/articles/2009/04/28/obama_ok_after_mexico_trip/ 

On April 6 2009- prior to Obama’s arrival in Mexico, local health officials declared a health alert due to a respiratory disease outbreak in the Mexican town of La Gloria in Veracruz state. Health officials record 400 cases of people who sought medical treatment in the previous week in the town. About 60 percent of the town of 3,000 are affected.  Follow the time line at http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/med_swine_flu_timeline Why would we think that the officials withheld anything?

Cuba yesterday became the first nation to suspends flights to and from Mexico, what country will be the next to impose a travel ban?  What about restrictions on imports like food?  WHO claims it is too late for containment anyways.

If I listen really hard during tonight’s Prime Time Conference, I wonder if I will be able to hear the tap dance from Obama on why his administration wasn’t more forthright about notifying the America of an imminent health threat.  The World Health Organization continues to monitor the situation as it raises its pandemic alert level.   The United States government’s national threat level is Elevated, or Yellow. For all domestic and international flights, the U.S. threat level is High, or Orange. http://www.dhs.gov/xinfoshare/programs/Copy_of_press_release_0046.shtm Had the Obama administration notified the citizens of New York City that a Boeing Jet, escorted by fighter planes would be buzzing the sky scrapers, I doubt wouldn’t have felt threatened either.  Wouldn’t want to alarm anyone, you know- us sheeples. http://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/04/27/jet-over-nyc-is-obamas-audacity/

For a Harvard graduate, President Obama seems to have forgotten that he won the Hispanic vote. “Why a virus that has spread across at least 10 countries and is suspected in many others has only killed Hispanics, and whether a race-specific bio-weapon is being beta-tested” asks http://www.prisonplanet.com/is-swine-flu-a-race-specific-virus.html  Indeed.

Hedging his bets on reducing population but increasing ratings, I recommend tuning in to Ted Turner’s CNN who will be broadcasting Obama’s Prime Time Conference.  Mr. Turner a believer in population control once said, “We’ve got to stabilize population.”  http://www.thirdeyeconcept.com/news/index.php?page=204 

Wash your hands before you grab your remote control and stay tuned for further developments.

Is fear from the economic crisis, the flu, and disasters causing an Apocalypse, to what proportion?  Is God to Blame?  Can we blame science?  Are the earthquakes like the 6 magnitude quake near Mexico City yesterday coincedental? Is capitalizing on crisis a means to build on a totalitarian global state?  Is the Swine Flu just a red flag warning of the coming New World Order? 

Global Research writes, “The events are following the same path as the Great Depression in 1929-1933: a financial crisis, an economic recession, social conflicts, establishing totalitarian dictatorships, inciting a war to concentrate power, and capital in the hands of a narrow circle. http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=13311

Rahm Emanuel warned that crisis will give the Obama administration powers to make change that have never been seen before. WSJ video here http://online.wsj.com/video/rahm-emanuel-on-the-opportunities-of-crisis/3F6B9880-D1FD-492B-9A3D-70DBE8EB9E97.html  America’s population has already witnessed signifcant changes to our military(Active Duty US Soldiers on U.S. soil in case of Martial Law), legal system (O sees fault in the Constituion), electronic control (Rockefeller working on legislation to limit internet) Health Care (changes to abortion and stem cell research laws) Banks (now Nationalized) Industry (Bailouts to GM) to name a few incidents that are indicative of large scale government control. “Conflicts across the globe and an international respect for Barack Obama have created the perfect setting for establishment of “a New World Order,” according to Henry Kissinger. http://www.worldnetdaily.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=85442

The World Health Organization raised its pandemic alert level over the deadly swine flu virus to a phase 4, on a scale of 6 noting that the infection could spread between humans to cause community level outbreaks.  This latest outbreak of swine flu appears to combine bird, swine and human viruses in a way that hasn’t been seen before. 

The WHO said closing the borders would not do any good, “containment of the outbreak is not feasible. The current focus should be on mitigation measures”. Had the earthquake hit Mexico City and it’s population of over 20 million, can you imagine the large influx of illegal immigrants entering America and border chaos.  Closing the border would also mean travel, food and trade resitrictions regulated by our government.  We already have some resitrictions with The Department of Immigration to keep a watchful eye and CODEX to oversee our food supply.  Throw in the Department of Homeland Security, who title is abhorent in and of itself alluding to gestapo tacticks and we see more and more, conpiracies than you can shake a stick at.  Lest you forget, it was Texas Gov. Rick Perry who forged a deal with Cintra-Zachry consortium for the first portion of what the 4,000-mile network of quarter-mile-wide transportation corridors from Mexico and across Texas where many of the Swine Flu outbreaks in the US  have been id. http://www.infowars.com/articles/nwo/tx_gov_leads_superhighway_rally.htm

The Bilderberg Club, famous for hosting secretive meetings each year with the world’s highest ranking and most powerful officials, is scheduled to have the 2009 meetings from May 14th to 16th, reports the newspaper Elefterios Tipos.  Are the chief aims of  elaborate, semisecret organization like this, The Illuminati, Skull & Bones, The Bank for International Settlements in Basle -BIS, and others commendable or are we standing in line for a sodomized ride? An article subtitled, “The World is a step closer to a global currenty , backed by a global central bank, running monetary politcy” is reviewed nicely at http://fromthewilderness.wordpress.com/2009/04/18/the-tower-of-basel-secretive-plans-for-the-issuing-of-a-global-currency/#comment-262.  Could the Truth Movement be warning of the truth?  http://socioecohistory.wordpress.com/2009/04/23/illuminati-controlled-msm-versus-the-truth-movement/#comment-2083

Adolf  Hitler and the National Socialist German Workers Party was once been dismissed as an extremist fringe by the mainstream conservatives. From  Hitler to  The Japanese to The CIA’s;  Project MK Ultra, MKNaomi, Operation Paperclip, Project Artichoke, Project Bluebird, Project Chatter have performed human experimentation.  Pharmacetical companies cross mutate DNA strains everyday.  In the process of eliminating Polio and searching to eradicate other infectious diseases what else could big Pharma have created?

Jannette Adu-Bobie, an expert on meningococcal vaccines, contracted meningitis while working in NZ govt. Wellington lab. and had both legs, left arm and the digits of her right hand amputated.  New Zealand has been producing chemical, biological and germ warefare weapons of mass destruction since at least the end of WWII. One of the well-documented cases is the manufacture of substantial quantities of the deadly defoliant Agent Orange between 1960 and 1987, which was subsequently used for the destruction of Vietnamese forests and mass murder of the North Vietnamese.  http://newzeelend.wordpress.com/2008/08/04/was-dr-adu-bobie-a-victim-of-biological-warfare-experiments/

 Here in The U.S. we see so many soldiers coming back from Iraq sick.  Dennis Kucinich stated the fact that 67% of babies born to returning Gulf War I veterans had deformities and/or severe illnesses which can be directly traced back to the Depleted Uranium contamination of the father which he received in Iraq or Kuwait”  http://www.cuttingedge.org/NEWS/n1965.cfm

Natural Solutions Foundation alerted the world to startling evidence that H5N1 virus may already have been genetically engineered, resulting in the potential for a man-made pandemic. Since Natural Solutions Foundation first used the phrase “Weaponized Avian Flu” on its www.HealthFreedomUSA.org Internet site, on July 19, 2008.  going further to say, “ that possibly “rogue” government operatives in concert with pharmaceutical interests, may be setting the stage for the unleashing of a genetically engineered Avian Flu pandemic-for-profit. http://mmsmiracle.wordpress.com/2008/08/21/internet-abuzz-avian-flu-weaponized/

Last year, US Based Baxter pharma accidentally sent vaccines to labs around the world containing a mix of live avian flu virus. http://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/03/11/vaccine-drug-deadly-costs-mistakes-threaten-pandemic/

Rense.com says, “This new flu is a lab created advanced biological warfare DNA genetically engineered virus that either: (1) Escaped accidentally from a lab; or (2) was deliberately released by a nation or non-state organization or a well-trained individual at http://www.rense.com/general85/BIO.HTM   stating ” This event is an advanced biological warfare event.”

Wheter it is a major false flag terrorist operation, a dirty bomb, human error, a freak of nature, or God himself, one thing is for sure- The Flu is spreading.

Looks like the race is on around the world to confine what I call the “Eye-Chiwawa Flu”, that is centered in Mexico City, Mexico and quickly spreading throughout the world.  One of the most reliable Google Maps on Swine Flu is being put assembled by Henry Niman, founder Recombinomics, who has been tracing the evolution of influenza for the last five years  http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF8&hl=en&t=p&msa=0&msid=106484775090296685271.0004681a37b713f6b5950&ll=47.517201,-109.335937&spn=101.871352,255.585938&z=2  Another data map is up at http://www.guardian.co.uk/news/datablog/2009/apr/27/flu-flu-pandemic.

Although Bama has gotten a clean bill of health from his visit to Mexico April 16, hundreds more cases are being reported with lab results being forwarded to the CDC and WHO for typing.  The CDC analysis is showing the disease is a mixture of swine, human and avian (bird)viruses that has NEVER EVER been seen before.  Some of those who died have been confirmed to have the unique version of the A/H1N1 flu virus.

The jury is still out on what caused the mutation and its ability to spread by human to human contact.  Could the recent flu be a human error in a vaccine mixing process called reassortment?  Could it be a freak of nature?  Could it be some sort of terrorist attack?  A petting zoo? Bacon and eggs?

Whatever the cause, the world is hustling to reduce the spread of the flu and reduce panic at the same time.  Mexican government authorities were slow to connect the dots in this near pandemic, resulting in a delay in identifying what was making hundreds ill and causing nearly 100 deaths of otherwise healthy people. 

Countries around the world aren’t following in the lazy footsteps of Mexican Health Officials, nor are they waiting to see if the threat level officially labeled as a pandemic, or potential pandemic. Erring on the side of caution before it is too late, some countries have begun quarantines and confinements, but clearly not in American cities.

While Mexico all is quiet with public gatherings prohibited and schools, museums, libraries and sports events canceled, just across the border in the U.S., The Fiesta San Antonio parades went on as usual http://www.fiesta-sa.org/ attracting thousands with a few activities detailed here http://sanantonio.about.com/b/2009/04/25/parades-and-more-as-fiesta-chugs-to-a-conclusion.htm .So much for avoiding public places, eh?

China, Russia and Taiwan began planning to put anyone with symptoms of the deadly virus under quarantine.  The following is sample of what some countries are doing to combat the outbreak  http://cnnwire.blogs.cnn.com/2009/04/27/countries-take-steps-to-prevent-swine-flu-outbreak/ . 

Along the US  border, screening for swine flu exposure began this morning  as the European Union advised against nonessential travel to Mexico and America.  From AP http://www.ap.org/ -  “The U.S. declared a national health emergency Sunday in the midst of confusion…the move allowed the government to ship roughly 12 million doses of flu-fighting medications from a federal stockpile to states in case they eventually need them.” 

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, called the emergency declaration “standard operating procedure,” instead urging “people to think of it as a ‘declaration of emergency preparedness.’”

President Obama is set to address the health crisis Monday in remarks to a meeting of the nation’s top scientists says US News http://www.usnews.com/usnews/politics/bulletin/bulletin_090427.htm. His administration sought on Sunday to strike a balance, informing Americans without panicking them.  The Swine Flu story has been around for days and Obama has finally decided to officially inform Americans.  Whew! 

Obama and America is still without a secretary of Health and Human Services or appointees in any of the department’s 19 key posts.  He has also not chosen a surgeon general or the head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0409/21719.html 

Guess we’ll have to rely on Homeland Security and the military, which makes me wonder what other privileges does declaring a national health emergency give your government?  The move will most definitely allow government agencies to free up federal, state and local agencies and their resources in preventing the spread of the virus.  What else?

If  Janet says, “be prepared, ” now would be a good time to cling to your guns and religion.   On the other hand, from the comments at http://sweetness-light.com/archive/napolitano-declares-emergency-preparedness it is noted that, “More people died in a Ted Kennedy Oldsmobile than have died from this swine/bird/human flu in Massachusetts.” 

Let’s hope that fact continues to be true not only in Massachusetts, but for all of America.
