The U.S. Department of Agriculture will begin collecting genetic sequences of swine flu found on pig farms in the future, says Nancy Cox director of the influenza division at the CDC.  The News Observer http://www.newsobserver.com/news/story/1510217.html  is reporting, and “the new H1N1 virus contains strains from past swine viruses.  Just yesterday, Canadian scientists completed the full genetic sequencing of the H1N1 swine flu virus, http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/20090506/wl_canada_afp/healthflucanadascience_20090506170314  and reports, ” lab work  appears to suggest that there’s nothing at the genetic level that differentiates this virus that we’ve got from Mexico and those from Nova Scotia and Ontario.  Whew, there doesn’t appear to be a genetic drift, just bad luck.   Nothing to worry about; just the first ever mutation of pig, bird, and human virus.

Scientists have been busy mapping the human genome, where, “A genetic linkage map shows the relative locations of specific DNA markers along the chromosome. Any inherited physical or molecular characteristic that differs among individuals and is easily detectable in the laboratory is a potential genetic marker. http://www.ornl.gov/sci/techresources/Human_Genome/publicat/primer/prim2.html  Humans and animals are a reassortment of our parents but susceptible to variations internally and environmentally.  Birth defects, autism, cancers, food supplies, personal choice, and access to heath care all influence mortality. Throw in the possibility of man made disease or germ warfare and population control comes to mind.

The International HapMap Project http://www.hapmap.org/  studies  human genetic variation and the Encyclopedia of DNA Elements, or ENCODE  http://www.genome.gov/10005107  project.  Note that ENCODE is just one letter away from ENDCODE.  For all intents and purposes, the Human Genome project is complete, but could sciences manipulation of genes and genetic markers result in the END of mankind, civilization as we know it?   Will your government now begin to automatically collect human DNA at birth for genetic sequencing?  Do they already?  Is ENCODE really ENDGAME?

A Russian Foreign Ministry report states that President Obama has secretly ordered the immediate opening of Americas vast gulag of concentration camps, built since 2001 and estimated able to hold a further 1 million of their citizens, which is aside from the 2.3 million currently imprisoned in what has become the Worlds largest Prison Nation in all of history, in what they are calling Project ENDGAME. http://www.fourwinds10.com/siterun_data/government/new_world_order/news.php?q=1235601651

Diplomat and author Peter Dale Scott, the KBR contract is part of a Homeland Security plan titled ENDGAME, which sets as its goal the removal of “all removable aliens” and “potential terrorists.”  “The federal government has assumed the authority to institute martial law, arrest a wide swath of dissidents (citizen and non citizen alike), and detain people without legal or constitutional recourse in the event of “an emergency influx of immigrants in the U.S., or to support the rapid development of new programs.” http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2008/02/04/ED5OUPQJ7.DTL  Would millions of infected people, people who refused vaccinations, people with unacceptable genetic markers be targeted?

Harvard Medical School’s Institutional is recruiting volunteers for it’s Personal Genome Project that will hold cell lines for 50 years by the Coriell Institute’s Human Genetic Cell Repository. http://www.genomeweb.com/sequencing/personal-genome-project-enroll-100-more-participants-summer-seeks-raise-15m-dona Participants’ DNA will be analyzed, but have not revealed how this will be done, or what sequencing technology the project anticipates using. Would they mutate your DNA, mix it with a dog and see what happens like in the movie Shaggy Dog,where experiments turn the dad into a dog?  They say everyone has a twin, were you cloned like the Dolly the sheep?  Could you be recreated in the lab after death? 

What about the legal, ethical and social implications in humans? (ELSI)

A number of federal and state laws prohibit insurance discrimination to various degrees. {ROFL} The Health Insurance Portability Protection Act (HIPAA)  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HIPAA  recognizes genetic information as Protected Health Information (PHI) and specifies protection for the confidentiality of PHI.  The Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act has a similar purpose.  Government health reform is embracing national standards for electronic health care transactions and national identifiers for providers, health insurance plans, and employers.  At the same time Rockefeller is warning of national security threats to the nation’s Internet.  Enter, restricted Internet II.  http://www.internet2.edu/network/ As noted by Pew Research, “People will wittingly and unwittingly disclose more about themselves, gaining some benefits in the process even as they lose some privacy.” http://www.pewinternet.org/Reports/2006/The-Future-of-the-Internet-II.aspx

President Obama has set aside “$4.7-billion that will be doled out under a new grant program administered by a small Commerce Department agency called the National Telecommunications and Information Administration. The project as “the first step in realizing President Obama’s vision of bringing the benefits of broadband technology to all Americans.” http://chronicle.com/free/2009/04/16710n.htm Anyone know where you can not get Internet access in America now?

The fear is justified. As the author of both The Coming Plague and Betrayal of Trust: The Collapse of Global Public Health, she sees great dangers lurking; in the desire of some groups to turn disease into a weapon, and the failure of others to prepare themselves for that threat.  http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2003/04/0409_030409_lauriegarrett.html  SARS, Ebola, AIDS, Flu, Small Pox, Anthrax, – all grave dangers, contagious.  Are infected persons to be rounded up, what of their civil rights? Privacy out the door?  

“Maybe the CDC should do an epidemiology study and see where all these new emerging diseases are clustering around. They might be surprised to find them popping up around biotechnology centers”, notes http://watchdogonscience.blogspot.com/2009/04/new-swine-influenza-hin1-infects-humans.html. Baxter Pharmaceutical, chosen by The World Health Organization to lead the way to a vaccine cure has a bio lab, just 50 miles from the flu’s outbreak.  Coincidence? https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/05/05/baxter-pharmaceutical-plant-in-mexico-ground-zero-for-flu-outbreak/ 

India has all but accused America of engineering the flu, accusing  the U.S. government of seeking a monopoly on controlling the virus for two reasons. Firstly to be able to dominate the vaccine market and make vast profits from providing the cure and secondly to potentially develop the strain into a potent biological weapon, accusing the Australian government of stealing Indonesia’s strain of H5N1 to make bird flu vaccines. http://www.abc.net.au/am/content/2008/s2167325.htm  The article is dates Wednesday, 20 February 2009, nearly a month before anyone began paying attention to this outbreak.

“It would seem that George Orwell might have been more prophetic than we perhaps gave him credit for”, says http://www.linuxjournal.com/content/internet-censorship-us-or-just-law-enforcement.

Swine Flu, H1N1 cases seem to be on the decline.  Health Agencies from WHO, CDC,HHS are still keeping a watchful eye.  Tamiflu is getting restocked for availability as manufacturers like Roche are going into overdrive for antiviral production.

In an absolute aberration, Baxter Pharmaceutical  http://www.baxter.com/ has been chosen by WHO to lead the efforts in finding a vaccine cure for H1N1.  Never heard of Baxter?  With little more than a slap on the wrist, Baxter sent vaccines contaminated with deadly live H5N1 avian flu virus to 18 countries before someone caught the mistake and the vaccine got injected thousands of people.  

Baxter just missed creating its own pandemic by mixing  deadly H5N1 virus with a mix of H3N2 seasonal flu viruses, or did they?  By possibly creating the pandemic, maybe Baxter already has the cure and that is why WHO has deemed them the appropriate pharmaceutical company to lead the way for a swine flu vaccine.

Just imagine the billions in profit to develop a cure for a swine-avian-human mixed flu virus, especially if Baxter’s own research and development teams may have developed the mutated strain in it’s own labs in the first place.

I doubt Baxter is the outlet for population control or reduction, just capitalizing on it’s own inventions.  Sick people are an asset whether they come from Mexico or the four corners of the world.  If they are all dead, how do they make money? 

One thought from http://www.naturalnews.com/026141.html  notes,” it is 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  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 in order to assist the World Health Organization in developing a new vaccine, reaping billions in the process. ” 

Baxter was also responsible for the mislabeled, recalled doses of Heparin.  Baxter recalled one lot of a product that hospitals use to treat burn victims and patients in shock after a test found a rare form of HIV in the plasma used to make the product.  HIV-2 in a plasma!   http://www.aegis.org/news/ct/2001/CT010716.html. Baxter also manufactures  a vaccine against tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) and a vaccine against group C meningococcal meningitis.  http://www.baxtervaccines.com/?node_id=312 , in addition to other pharmaceutical products, anesthetic’s, pumps, etc.   http://www.ecomm.baxter.com/ecatalog/browseCatalog.do?lid=10001&cid=10016

Just 50 miles from the H1N1 ground zero outbreak in Mexico City, lies Baxter’s manufacturing plant in Cuernavaca, Mexico.  It was named one of the 10 Best Plants in North America for 2008 by Industry Week magazine.  http://www.baxter.com/about_baxter/news_room/news_releases/2008/12_19_08_industryweek.html  The plant manufactures, “Water For Injection, Devices Medical, Premixes Formulations,” according to  http://www.alibaba.com/member/juanbaxter/aboutus.html.  What else do they manufacture there?  What kind of water gets injected?  Germ Warfare? Bio Hazards? Virus Mutations? Vaccines? Cures or Causes?

The National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) has a satellite campus located in Cuernavaca, which is aimed at research and graduate studies. It also has an undergraduate program in genomics.  Cuernavaca is the home of the following research centers: Center for Genomic Sciences (UNAM),[3] the Institute of Biotechnology (UNAM),[4] the Institute of Physical Sciences (UNAM),[5] the Center for research in Energy (UNAM), the Institute of Mathematics (UNAM), the Center for Research in Engineering and Applied Sciences (UAEM),[6] and the National Institute of Public Health. Cuernavaca has the highest concentration of scientists and researchers in Latin America. -WIKI http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cuernavaca  Cuernavaca is certainly a who’s who in genetics and research.

Certainly someone or some government knows how to engineer and unleash such deadly viruses, but the implication is horrendous. Equally horrific is that Americans could be subject to compulsory vaccinations and possible detention thanks to Patriot Act I, Patriot II, BARDA, BioShield I, BioShield II,  BARDA, Federal or State Emergency Medical Powers Acts, FEMA, and the most recent announcement of a Health Emergency from DHS and a level 5 pandemic level designation from WHO.

Remarkable. Watch how the Swine Flu gets released.  Amazing graphics in this is brief, 3D visualization of the influenza type-a virus’ antigenic shift. 

From You Tube, “Only the influenza Type-A virus is capable of what is known as antigenic shift. The current flu in circulation is an entirely new, mutated pathogen formed from elements of human, pig, and avian virus strains.  Overflowing with mutated viruses, the respiratory epithelial host cells of the pig eventually burst open and circulate the new flu virus into the susceptible human population. ”

Maybe this visualization could be used for any type of virus, but it is amazing none-the-less.  More on the topic at —

Swine Flu May Merge With Other Flu Viruses, CDC Says May 3 (Bloomberg) — Swine flu’s potential to reconfigure its genetic material and become more deadly is a “major concern,” said Anne Schuchat, a scientist with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

What a bunch of double speak from not only our elected officials but, governments around the world.  I know they just don’t know, but I also think they know that we know, that they know, that we know that something is amiss. 

Nearly a month ago, Mexico 1st became aware that there was a problem and was as slow as molasses to take steps to warn people of a possible health threat- similar to the Chinese who at least admitted they were negligent with SARS reporting delays in efforts to control the epidemic. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Severe_acute_respiratory_syndrome

While not eliminated, the last infected human case of SARS was in June 2003.  There is no rapid response testing for SARS.  In 2003, WHO announced that “a new pathogen, a member of the coronavirus family never before seen in humans, is the cause of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS)” http://www.who.int/mediacentre/news/releases/2003/pr31/en/ Here we are six years later, and we have another new pathogen never seen before that is a mutation of pig, bird, human.  Both virus’ are spread by simple human to human contact. 

Canada is now reporting infected pigs. Peter Ben Embarek, a WHO food safety scientist said, “The virus that infected the pigs is the same one that is in circulation among people, and there is no indication that the transfer between species has caused the flu bug to mutate into a new or dangerous form,” Embarek said and continues to reiterate that eating pork is safe. “You can continue to safely eat your prosciutto.” http://www.usatoday.com/news/health/2009-05-03-canada-flu_N.htm I wouldn’t eat a cow with mad cow disease, a chicken with avian flu, or have sex with someone who has AIDS, why would I eat the contaminated pig?

“With AIDS you have to get fu*^ed in someway; either by a contaminated parter during sex, the medical system, blood transfusions, etc., not just getting coughed on by a ill person.  There is no cure for AIDS either, and the last confirmed report of someone having AIDS was probably yesterday.  Science hasn’t cured the common cold, let alone AIDS, SARS, or the Swine Flu.

“During this outbreak of a novel H1N1 flu virus (formerly referred to as “swine flu”), there will be increased demand in the U.S. for a variety of medical products that may help treat or prevent influenza, including antiviral drugs and personal protection equipment, such as masks. Consumers may seek to purchase such products, including, with a prescription, antiviral drugs. Depending on how this virus spreads and the current situation evolves, consumers and patients may encounter some shortages of these products, as the demand may occasionally exceed the supply available directly to consumers in some locations, creating what are often called, “spot shortages.”  {emphasis mine} http://sharing.govdelivery.com/bulletins/GD/USHHS-735DB

Just days ago, the CDC said they have enough anti-viral drugs to combat a spreading outbreak of swine flu.  ”  Acting CDC director Richard Besser said, “ There are no reports, and we don’t expect any reports, of shortages of any anti-virals in any states,” he told reporters.  {empasis mine} The CDC’s interim director for public health, Anne Schuchat, said the US government has “extensive supplies” of the drugs oseltamir (Tamiflu) and zanamivir (Relenza). http://www.google.com/hostednews/afp/article/ALeqM5gsCu6xmwGDfldVN8sTUQzfBauuOQ

Maybe CDC and DHS might want to start communicating a little better as one agency says we have enough and the other that drugs will be in short supply?   

The government bulletin goes on to say that, “The federal government is purchasing additional supplies of these products to refresh the Strategic National Stockpile so that it can continue to meet our public health needs.”  This translates into the fact that there will be less Antivirals on the shelf at the local pharmacy.   A quick survey of several pharmacy’s in and around the City of Snohomish near Seattle, Washington finds that they are all out of the treasured TamiFLU anti-viral medicine. http://www.snohomishtimes.com/snohomishNEWS.cfm?inc=story&newsID=507  “Pharmaceutical giant Roche stopped delivering the flu remedy Tamiflu to French high street pharmacies on Thursday, after panic over the swine flu outbreak saw it disappearing off the shelves.  http://www.google.com/hostednews/afp/article/ALeqM5j0g8mOFeQael0wAaEyLDCagwtnGwMedicines to fight the virus, such as Tamiflu and Relenza, must be taken within 48 hours of first symptoms to do any good.

Don’t you feel better knowing than the government will be in charge and have ownership of our banking system, automobile manufacturing, the unions, and now potentially the medicine that could save lives? 

While the drugs are far from a cure, they seems to have some treatment properties for the standard flu and apparently in some cases, Swine Flu.  Testing for Swine flu and like SARS is far from reliable.  “The rRT-PCR Swine Flu Panel diagnostic test has not been approved or cleared by the FDA. “(empasis mine) An EUA allows this unapproved diagnostic kit to be legally distributed and used for the authorized purposes. Section 8 from cdc http://www.cdc.gov/h1n1flu/eua/qa.htm.  “The CDC says ”A negative RT-PCR test should not be interpreted as demonstrating that the patient does not have swine influenza virus infection.”  http://www.swinefluprevent.org/interpreting-swine-influenca-rt-pcr-detection-panel-test-results-fact-sheet-for-healthcare-providers  Even the tests for SARS are far from reliable with some taking up to 21 days to diagnose and again that the results are not definitive. {Wiki}.

 “I have no higher priority as President of the United States than the safety and security of the American people, and I will do whatever is necessary to protect this country. ” said President Obama in his weekly White House address.  http://www.whitehouse.gov/the_press_office/WEEKLY-ADDRESS-President-Obama-Outlines-Government-Actions-to-Address-the-2009-H1N1-Flu/  In contrast to his priority of keeping antivirals available for Americans, last week President Obama authorized  Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to send 400,000 Treatment Courses Deployed to Mexico last Thursday. http://www.hhs.gov/news/press/2009pres/04/20090430a.html 

The World Health Organization said Saturday it has sent 2.4 million treatments of anti-flu drug Tamiflu to 72 developing countries preparing themselves against a possible swine flu pandemic.  The drugs came from a WHO stockpile donated by drug maker Roche Holding AG, Dr. Mike Ryan, WHO’s global alert and response director, told a news conference in Geneva. http://www.etaiwannews.com/etn/news_content.php?id=937607&lang=eng_news&cate_img=316.jpg&cate_rss=news_Health 

It isn’t even flu season yet.  Will this early response and release of antivirals and effect on the current outbreak jeopardize the efforts to prevent the standard flu witch kills more than a half a million people worldwide every ear?  4 May 2009 — As of 06:00 GMT, 4 May 2009, 20 countries have officially reported 985 cases of influenza A (H1N1) infection. http://www.who.int/csr/don/2009_05_04/en/index.html  How many cases will develop and how far this spreads is anyone’s guess.  

Not to be outdone in profiteering from the flu or pandemics. ” The world’s second-richest man( Warren Buffett) also said Berkshire, which generates about half its business from insurance, would consider writing policies to insure against a potential swine flu pandemic if it got paid enough. http://www.reuters.com/article/newsOne/idUSTRE5422NI20090504

On April 26, 2009, pursuant to section 564(b)(1)(C) of the Act (21 U.S.C. § 360bbb-3(b)(1)(C)), the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) determined that there is a public health emergency under 42 U.S.C. § 247d that affects, or has a significant potential to affect, national security, and that involves a specified biological, chemical, radiological, or nuclear agent or agents, or a specified disease or condition that may be attributable to such an agent or agents — in this case, swine influenza A (H1N1).

Joshua M. Sharfstein, MD, Principal Deputy Commissioner, Acting Commissioner for the FDA  wrote he is “authorizing the emergency use of the Swine Influenza Virus Real-time RT-PCR Detection Panel (rRT-PCR Swine Flu Panel) for the presumptive diagnosis of swine influenza A (H1N1) virus infection in human individuals who have been diagnosed with influenza, caused by a virus not subtypeable by currently available FDA-cleared devices, (emphasis mine) subject to the terms of this authorization.”http://www.fda.gov/cdrh/emergency/panel-authorization.html#ft1 

An Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) was issued by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to allow either the use of an unapproved medical product or an unapproved use of an approved medical product during certain types of emergencies with specified agents. 

”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  Funny thing is, ” Currently, the EUAs do not include translated versions of fact sheets.” 

So what’s the problem?  The tests have not been approved, are unreliable and physicians around the world may not be able to read English! 

Section 8- “While Tamiflu and Relenza have been previously approved by the FDA, certain aspects of the distribution and use of these products are not covered by their approved applications.  An EUA allows these drugs to be legally distributed for the unapproved (empasis mine) uses for which they are being authorized.  FDA has authorized emergency use of disposable N95 respirators by the general public during this declared emergency.  These respirators may help to keep out germs that may be present in the air you breathe.  The rRT-PCR Swine Flu Panel diagnostic test has not been approved or cleared by the FDA. “(empasis mine) An EUA allows this unapproved diagnostic kit to be legally distributed and used for the authorized purposes.

Disposable N95 respirators offered by Survivair say ” The ONE-Fit NBW95 and NBW95V meet NIOSH N95 standards, CDC guidelines for M Tuberculosis exposure control and are recommended as sufficient protection against many substances, including pandemic diseases such as H5N1 Avian Flu and SARS. air-mask-apr_valueairhttp://www.survivair.com/search/searchResults.asp This mask is a far cry from the paper thin masks I see people wearing.  Other sources for masks are here- http://www.cdc.gov/niosh/npptl/topics/respirators/disp_part/n95list1.htmlA EUA is currently in effect. ” The FDA made available to public health and medical personnel important diagnostic and therapeutic tools to identify and respond to the swine flu virus under certain circumstances.  On April 27, 2009, the FDA issued EUAs for the use of certain antiviral products (Relenza, Tamiflu), N95 respirators, and for the rRT-PCR Swine Flu Panel diagnostic test. Additional information on these EUAs can also be found on FDA 2009 H1N1 Virus site http://www.cdc.gov/h1n1flu/eua/qa.htm 

Section 564 of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the Act), amended by the Project BioShield Act of 2004, permits authorization of such products for use in diagnosing, treating, or preventing serious or life-threatening diseases or conditions caused by biological, chemical, radiological, or nuclear agents even when they are not approved AND ,

Even though WHO has renamed the Swine Flu to A/H1N1   or  Influenza H1N1, an FDA, CDC report says, “Swine flu is a respiratory disease of pigs caused by type A influenza virus that regularly causes outbreaks of influenza in pigs . Human cases of swine flu virus infection have been identified in the United States and internationally. CDC has determined that this virus is contagious and is spreading from human to human. ” http://www.fda.gov/cdrh/emergency/panel-factsheet2.html

Despite “the fact that it (the test) does not meet certain requirements otherwise required by federal law” it is being distributed to public health and other qualified laboratories and doing so with no liability on the part of the government.  Sharfstein also waived any liability for citizens should the test or cure result in additional illness, death or damages. “The Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness Act (“PREP Act”) enacted as Division C of the Defense Appropriations Act for fiscal year 2006, Pub. L. No. 109-148, added new authorities under the Public Health Service (PHS) Act to alleviate concerns about liability related to the manufacture, testing, development, distribution, administration and use of countermeasures against chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear agents of terrorism, epidemics, and pandemics. http://www.hhs.gov/disasters/emergency/manmadedisasters/bioterorism/medication-vaccine-qa.html

Let’s hope The rRT-PCR Swine Flu Panel speeds up identifying cases.  The vaccine for the original swine flu ended up killing more people than the virus itself.

I would expect numbers to rise due localized testing rather than having to send samples direct to the CDC.  I find it interesting as well that the CDC says “A negative RT-PCR test should not be interpreted as demonstrating that the patient does not have swine influenza virus infection.”  http://www.swinefluprevent.org/interpreting-swine-influenca-rt-pcr-detection-panel-test-results-fact-sheet-for-healthcare-providers

To summarize The rRT-PCR Swine Flu Panel:

1.  The test was never approved for this use.

2.  The test results are unreliable.

3.  There is no liability.

4.  Our tax dollars are paying for this for U.S. and world wide distribution.

5.  The Instructions are in English.
