Chlamydia and Gonorrhea are sexually transmitted diseases and curable with antibiotics use. 

As opposed to CDC and government statistics sounding alarm bells at the increased number of H1N1 Swine Flu nationwide, our military is seeing no such numbers U.S. troops are combat ready, just having a lot of unprotected sex.   At the time of this report no one had apparently began receiving the H1N1 Flu shot.

There was some concern when The Boxer and the Boxer Amphibious Ready Group and the 13th Marine Expeditionary Unit (13th MEU) reported that a large amount of crew members had either the Swine or Seasonal Flu. see- https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/09/27/h1n1-swine-quarantine-navy-ship-crew/#comment-2784 

In recent weeks a small number of ARG Sailors and 13th Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU) Marines aboard USS Boxer (LHD 4), USS Lake Champlain (CG 57), USS Comstock (LSD 45) and USS New Orleans (LPD 18) had symptoms of an influenza-like illness (ILI). Sixty-nine crew members were officially confirmed to have had strain H1N1 virus, while many others were confirmed to have a typical seasonal flu strain.

“Units now have the ability to provide enhanced medical intervention in shipboard infection control, decontamination-disinfection, patient isolation, sampling and initiation of treatment,” Baxter said.  http://www.navynews.com/local_news_04.htm

Whether or not patient isolation can be defined as a quarantine is up for debate. 

From The Chief, Bureau of  Medicine and Surgery, A.M. Robinson, Jr in a May 2009 report regarding Interim Guidance  for H1N1 Influenza Virus Infection- http://www-nmcphc.med.navy.mil/downloads/diseases_conditions/SwineFlu/BUMEDNOTE%206220%20(6%20May%202009).pdf 

d. Planning Measures

(1) Movement restriction (to include isolation, quarantine, and sequestration of units) is a viable means by which to decrease spread of infection.

U.S. Northern Commander, Air Force General Gene Renuart said that between 15 and 20 troops have been dispatched to each of the five regional headquarters, to work with officials from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Department of Health and Human Services, the Federal Emergency Management Agency and state leaders.  But the military presence could rise to 80 in each regional office if needed, he said.”http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5g928uDiWtcnBFT28j5UfIeUXXuMQD9B1838G2 

The move to have active duty troops on U.S. soil throws Posse Comitatus out the door.  Will the same planning measures of isolation, quarantine, and sequestration that applies to military personnel also apply to civilians?

The fact remains that “All military personnel will be vaccinated against the H1N1 flu virus, and the vaccine will be available to all military family members who want it.”  http://www.vancouverite.com/2009/09/02/mandatory-swine-fluvaccination-for-u-s-military 

condom red

Both Chlamydia and Gonorrhea are preventable with the use of condoms.  Perhaps a better educational directive from the Military would be an appropriate measure since the reported cases far out way those of the H1N1 Swine Flu or Novel Influenza.

Just last week, an HIV positive soldier was punished for having unprotected sex.  The 37-year-old aviation electronics technician was sentenced to three months’ confinement and a bad-conduct discharge after pleading guilty to two counts of aggravated assault as well as disobeying an order.   http://hamptonroads.com/2009/10/hivpositive-sailor-punished-having-unprotected-sex

Say so long to the National Preparedness Month of September.  Keeping with the H1N1 Swine Influenza pandemic propaganda; the CDC and WHO have blathered on about making emergency plans and assembling supply kits, from FEMA about developing provisions for a national disaster, from President Obama at White House about timely responses and the Pentagon purchasing 2.7 million vaccines with 1.4 million going to active duty military. 

U.S. Northern Commander, Air Force General Gene Renuart said, of the military’s plan to compel all active duty military personnel with the Influenza H1N1 Swine Flu Monovalent Vaccine, ” They will, as a percentage of the population, be vaccinated more rapidly that many of us.  So we may see some objective results, good or not, of the vaccination.” in a AP article http://www.vindy.com/news/2009/sep/30/military-to-receive-required-shots-soon/?newswatch

The military are now being called upon to undertake roles normally designated to police as Americans are incrementally acclimated to accept the presence of troops on the streets as an everyday occurrence.

For the general population, the first swine flu vaccine should be in some doctors’ offices as early as Oct. 5, according to U.S. health officials  So far, Renuart said,” that between 15 and 20 troops have been dispatched to each of the five regional headquarters, to work with officials from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Department of Health and Human Services, the Federal Emergency Management Agency and state leaders.  But the military presence could rise to 80 in each regional office if needed, he said.”http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5g928uDiWtcnBFT28j5UfIeUXXuMQD9B1838G2 So much for Posse Comitatus!

General Renuart disclose which fema offices military would be working in but one list of fema locations can be found here http://www.fema.gov/about/contact/statedr.shtm and regional offices here  http://www.fema.gov/business/nfip/nfip_regions.shtm.    Friends of Liberty has a list of suspected or potential fema camps here http://www.sianews.com/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=1062

A federal appeals court  9/29/09 upheld a program that requires some members of the military to be vaccinated against anthrax over objections from service members who say the vaccine has not been proven to be effective. http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2009/09/29/health/main5350690.shtml

The military’s vaccine, produced by Michigan-based Bioport Corp., was approved based on a human test in the 1950s that studied textile workers at risk for the disease because they routinely handled infected imported goat hair.  Since the 1950’s we have seen an increase in viruses mutating and jumping species.  All are in agreement the the A/H1N1 Swine Influenza is either a neutral or lab created myriad of swine, bird, and human makeup.

The Boxer and the Boxer Amphibious Ready Group and the 13th Marine Expeditionary Unit (13th MEU) reported that a large amount of crew members had either the Swine or Seasonal Flu. see- https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/09/27/h1n1-swine-quarantine-navy-ship-crew/#comment-2784

Did a Navy crew receive the H1N1 Swine Flu Vaccine or some other vaccine that caused significant illness aboard the amphibious assault ship USS Boxer?

Boxer and the Boxer Amphibious Ready Group and the 13th Marine Expeditionary Unit (13th MEU) deployed from Southern California in January to support global maritime security.

Main Stream Media reported in July 2009:  http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2009/07/21/health/main5177494.shtmlA group of Navy ships is under quarantine after several dozen sailors and Marines on board tested positive for swine flu. Health officials say at least 69 people had been confirmed with the virus, and all of them have since recovered.  Navy officials say they are now quarantining an undetermined number of crew members with flu like symptoms on four ships that are part of the USS Boxer Amphibious Ready Group, which arrived in Hawaii on Friday. The ships are docked at or near Pearl Harbor.

H1N1 Swine Flu Conspiracy reports http://labvirus.wordpress.com/2009/09/25/h1n1-vaccine-infects-entire-naval-vessel-kills-captain-and-chief-petty-officer/ – Of the 347 man crew that were vaccinated, 333 contracted the H1N1 flu FROM THE VACCINE. Two died, as mentioned above, and 331 survived. Only 14 of the 347 vaccinated sailors did not show any ill effects from the vaccine.  Two have died- the Captain and the chief petty officer.

From the Navy Sixty-nine crew members were officially confirmed to have had strain H1N1 virus, while many others were confirmed to have a typical seasonal flu strain. All had very mild symptoms that lasted a few days and were able to continue all of their shipboard duties.  The group returned to San Diego on August 1st. http://www.navynews.com/local_news_04.htm

Who you going to believe?  The Main Stream Media, Conspiracy sites or the Navy? I believe the truth is out there- The X-files.

 “All military personnel will be vaccinated against the H1N1 flu virus, and the vaccine will be available to all military family members who want it.” The Defense Department health official said. http://www.vancouverite.com/2009/09/02/mandatory-swine-flu-vaccination-for-u-s-military/

Lot release information will be updated weekly.  Last update: 9/24/2009.  http://www.fda.gov/BiologicsBloodVaccines/GuidanceComplianceRegulatoryInformation/Post-MarketActivities/LotReleases/ucm181956.htm

Manufacturer Total Number of Lots Released by FDA
MedImmune LLC 9
Novartis Vaccines and Diagnostics Limited 3
Sanofi Pasteur, Inc. 3

From the CSL package insert: Influenza A (H1N1) 2009 Monovalent Vaccine,  Manufactured by CSL Limited, Suspension for Intramuscular Injection, Initial U.S. Approval: 2007 [sic- approved TWO YEARS AGO!)

From the CSL package insert

Vaccination with Influenza A (H1N1) 2009 Monovalent Vaccine may not protect all individuals.

5.4 Limitations of Vaccine Effectiveness

Neurological disorders temporally associated with influenza vaccination, such as encephalopathy, optic neuritis/neuropathy, partial facial paralysis, and brachial plexus neuropathy, have been reported.

8.1 Pregnancy

Pregnancy Category C: Animal reproduction studies have not been conducted with Influenza A (H1N1) 2009 Monovalent Vaccine or AFLURIA. It is also not known whether these vaccines can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman or can affect reproduction capacity. Influenza A (H1N1) 2009 Monovalent Vaccine should be given to a pregnant woman only if clearly needed.

8.3 Nursing Mothers

Neither Influenza A (H1N1) 2009 Monovalent Vaccine nor AFLURIA has been evaluated in nursing mothers. It is not known whether Influenza A (H1N1) 2009 Monovalent Vaccine or AFLURIA is excreted in human milk. Because many drugs are excreted in human milk, caution should be exercised when Influenza A (H1N1) 2009 Monovalent Vaccine is administered to a nursing woman.

8.4 Pediatric Use

   Neither Influenza A (H1N1) 2009 Monovalent Vaccine nor AFLURIA has been evaluated in children. Safety and effectiveness in the pediatric population have not been established.

Similar warnings from the Novartis inserthttp://www.fda.gov/downloads/BiologicsBloodVaccines/Vaccines/ApprovedProducts/UCM182242.pdf

 8.3 Nursing Mothers-It is not known whether FLUVIRIN or Influenza A (H1N1) 2009 Monovalent Vaccine is excreted in human milk. Because many drugs are excreted in human milk, caution should be exercised when Influenza A (H1N1) 2009 Monovalent Vaccine is administered to a nursing woman

 

 8.4 Pediatric UseSafety and effectiveness in pediatric subjects below the age of 4 years have not been established. [see ADVERSE REACTIONS (6) and CLINICAL STUDIES (14)] 

Pregnancy Category C: Animal reproduction studies have not been conducted with Influenza A (H1N1) 2009 Monovalent Vaccine or FLUVIRIN. It is also not known whether Influenza A (H1N1) 2009 Monovalent Vaccine or FLUVIRIN can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman or can affect reproduction capacity. Influenza A (H1N1) 2009 Monovalent Vaccine should be given to a pregnant woman only if clearly needed.

The government is starting an unprecedented system to track possible side effects as mass flu vaccinations begin next month. The idea is to detect any rare but real problems quickly, and explain the inevitable coincidences that are sure to cause some false alarms.

“Every day, bad things happen to people. When you vaccinate a lot of people in a short period of time, some of those things are going to happen to some people by chance alone,” said Dr. Daniel Salmon, a vaccine safety specialist at the Department of Health and Human Services. http://www.philly.com/philly/wires/ap/features/health/20090927_ap_swineflushotintensetrackingforsideeffects.html

Just how did CSL Limited, Suspension for Intramuscular Injection get Initial U.S. Approval in 2007?????? TWO YEARS before the explosion of H1N1 around the world.  These patient inserts appear to be from the respective manufacturers of the seasonal flu vaccine, only adding the text for H1N1 with no large clinical studies.

US officials say the first swine flu vaccine will be available on Oct. 5. http://www.presstv.ir/detail.aspx?id=107252&sectionid=3510210  Women and children first please.

Summer is officially over here in the Northern Hemisphere.  As if it isn’t bad enough to think about grey and dreary weather for the next 7 months- we have the threat of seasonal and H1N1 swine flu, and the threat that the vaccines being hyped may end up causing the flu itself let alone  immediate side effects, and the potential for long term disability.

CIDRAP provides updates of what we know about  Novel H1N1 Influenza ( The Swine Flu’s official Name) The latest update came out on September 25th and is one of the best places to learn about it..http://www.cidrap.umn.edu/cidrap/content/influenza/swineflu/biofacts/swinefluoverview.html Turning my antenna after reading it was:

A recent molecular analysis of the novel H1N1 virus demonstrates that the virus possesses a distinctive evolutionary trait (genetic distinctness) that may be characteristic in pig-human interspecies transmission of influenza A (reported cases of similar reassortant viruses of swine origin occurred in Iowa, Maryland, and Wisconsin between 1991 and 2006)

This novel Swine H1N1 flu has been apparently occurring for some time, but only now has seen rapid progression.

CBC News in Canada  http://www.naturalnews.com/027102_vaccines_H1N1_flu_shot.html is reporting, “”Four Canadian studies involved about 2,000 people, health officials told CBC News. Researchers found people who had received the seasonal flu vaccine in the past were more likely to get sick with the H1N1 virus.”

You are more likely to get the H1N1 virus if you get the seasonal flu shot!

In the United States- 

In some states, the swine flu vaccine will be injected at public sites like schools and city clinics, as the polio vaccine was doled out in the 1950s. The best-prepared school systems have already asked parents to sign consent forms and have discussed plans at parent-teacher association meetings, Dr. Frieden said. Doctors, pharmacies and companies may also dispense it; the government is urging them to keep fees minimal. http://www.nytimes.com/2009/09/26/health/research/26flu.html?_r=1&hp

Human beings have been both fascinated and appalled by randomness. On the one hand, we love the thrill of a surprise party, the unpredictability of a  romance, the freedom of not knowing what tomorrow will bring. We abhor uncertainty’s dark side.  Terrorists attacks and accidents happen.  We never know if we’ll be that one in a million statistic to hit the lottery, get struck by lightening or contract some mutated virus like A/H1N1 Swine Flu.

If you live the the U.S. statistically it appears you have a better chance of catching H1N1 than in the other 74 countries the virus has been reported in.  According to  http://online.wsj.com/article/SB124464616272602341.html#mod=rss_US_News  “Nearly half of the world’s confirmed swine flu cases, or 13,217, are in the U.S.”  The CDC has the numbers at about 14,000 confirmed or probable cases of swine flu. Overall, a small percentage of the population unless you are one of the 27 Americans who got the flu and died. http://www.cdc.gov/ The numbers are expected to rise as the CDC will updates it statistics tomorrow.

“On the basis of available evidence, the scientific criteria for an influenza pandemic has been met. I have therefore decided to raise the level of pandemic alert from phase 5 to phase 6, the world is now at the start of the pandemic,” Margaret Chan said.http://news.xinhuanet.com/english/2009-06/12/content_11528799.htm  The start?  In the U.S., a public health emergency was declared April 26,2009. 

The World Health Organization http://www.who.int/en/  would have been negligent had they not made  it official, declaring a Phase 6 alert in response to the H1N1 swine flu virus .  Phase 6 is the WHO’s highest alert level and indicates an influenza pandemic is under way. 

This H1N1 variant is going after people with healthy immune systems.   It is spreading geographically and is unusual, continuing to spread during the start of summer in the northern hemisphere when normally flu viruses die off with warm weather.  H1N1 is proving to be a resilient little bugger.

Scienceblogs argues http://scienceblogs.com/effectmeasure/2009/06/swine_flu_lets_scrap_the_pande.php “Instead of revamping the alert system, WHO should consider scrapping it in favor of an up-to-date information system,” relying on globalization of information from the Internet.   Pretty ironic seeing as the WHOIS data base has not been updated for ’09. The author assumes that countries would actually be forthright and we know that Mexico waited weeks to tell the world.  “Suddenly, a whole village got sick somewhere, or young and healthy people fell ill”, said Larath Gollogly, a spokesperson at WHO in Geneva. http://genevalunch.com/2009/06/11/who-declares-phase-6-pandemic-in-ah1n1/  Suddenly! 

Andrew Rambaut of the Institute of Evolutionary Biology at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland and colleagues estimated the timescale of the development of the epidemic. They determined it was derived from several swine viruses and the initial transmission to humans occurred several months before recognition of the outbreak. “Despite widespread influenza surveillance in humans, the lack of systematic swine surveillance allowed for the undetected persistence and evolution of this potentially pandemic strain for many years,” the researchers said. The original article in Nature is available here as a PDF here http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/vnfv/ncurrent/pdf/nature08182.pdf 

 

 

 

“The unsampled history of the epidemic means that the nature and location of the genetically closest swine viruses reveal little about the immediate origin of the epidemic, despite the fact that we included a panel of closely related and previously unpublished swine influenza isolates.”

 

 

In upping the designation to the highest level 6 the U.N. agency has covered it’s ass and reiterated what all the research points to, that “The virus is not stoppable,” she {sic Chan}  said. “I would advise them to maintain vigilance, enhance surveillance and be prepared for the arrival of the novel H1N1 in their country.”

Yes, we all want countries to be prepared as possible to contain the virus but, WHO has hasn’t ruled out that H1N1 could turn into a more virulent strain or affect different populations differently. Chan by stating that this is the start of the pandemic, issues a huge warning and again brings up the conspiracy that this H1N1 mutation may be man made, may be a race-specific bio-weapon and, at least according to experts at The Institute of Evolutionary Biology- they do not know its origin.    

“Genetic weapons capable of wiping out specific ethnic groups are no longer the stuff of science fiction, military and scientific advisers with the British and American governments have admitted,” states the report from  A 1999 UK Sunday Herald piece  http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_qn4156/is_19990509/ai_n13937769/  The article, New Weapons of Ethnic Cleansing says, “Technology is now far enough advanced to give even small nations the ability to create so called “G-Bombs”, ethnically-targeted biological missiles with warheads tipped with plague or anthrax, designed to eliminate entire racial groups.”  Could a “G-Bomb” be inserted into a vaccine?

The report issued 10 years ago by the British Medical Association said that race-specific bio-weapons would be ready within 5 years- , “enabling governments to target victims solely on their genetic make-up.”  If you add together a number of different markers for different populations you can start to be specific to a target population,” said Nathanson.  Once a markers is identified, a virus could be designed to look for them on entering the body. It would scan the DNA of cells looking for markers and if it found them it would insert itself into the host DNA and start the process of infection.”

” G-bombs would use genetic markers specific only to particular races to trigger the virus – anyone without the genetic marker would be unaffected. Scientists could manipulate the structure of the plague virus to attack only a person who had a race-specific DNA code. One race- specific trait determined by genes is the body’s reaction to lactose. Asians and Europeans have different DNA markers determining lactose reaction. This kind of knowledge could be used to construct a virus which only attacks Asians, and could lead to a scenario where a plague- laced bomb dropped on a city would wipe out the entire Asian community but leave every white person alive.”  Is H1N1 a virus capable of scanning DNA cells looking for markers to start the process of infection?

“Advanced forms of biological warfare that can target specific genotypes may transform biological warfare from the realm of terror to a politically useful tool,” stated the September 2000 Rebuilding America’s Defenses report at http://www.newamericancentury.org/RebuildingAmericasDefenses.pdf  released by the Project For A New American Century.  Who defines what race is no longer useful is apocalyptic to the entire human race.

The 1972 Biological Weapons Convention is supposed to prohibit offensive research, but there is little doubt that there is black box biodefense research going on not only the U.S., but by other countries as well. The Convention on the Prohibition of the Development, Production and Stockpiling of Bacteriological (Biological) and Toxin Weapons and on Their Destruction, also known as the Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention or BWC, prohibits the development, production, stockpiling and acquisition of these weapons. The BWC thus supplements the prohibition on use of biological weapons contained in the 1925 Geneva Protocol.http://www.fas.harvard.edu/~hsp/biologic.html

Project Jefferson, was a covert 2001 U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency program designed to determine if the current anthrax vaccine was effective against genetically engineered-modified bacteria. After the program’s existence was revealed by the New York Times in 2001, the Pentagon announced that it intended to complete the project and that the results would be classified. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_Jefferson 

Project Bacchus was a covert investigation by the Defense Threat Reduction Agency US Defense Department to determine whether it is possible to construct a bioweapons production facility with off-the-shelf equipment. In the two-year simulation, the facility was constructed, and production of anthrax-like bacterium was successfully completed. The participating scientists were able to produce about one kilogram of highly-refined bacterial particles.  The bacteria were milled to particle sizes of 1-5 microns with machinery bought on the open market in the US. http://www.newscientist.com/article/dn1449 and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_Bacchus.

Project Clear Vision was a covert investigation of Soviet-built biological bomblets conducted by the Battelle Memorial Institute under contract with the CIA. Projects Jefferson, Bacchus and Clear Vision were the focus of the 2001 book Germs: Biological Weapons and America’s Secret War http://www.amazon.com/Germs-Biological-Weapons-Americas-Secret/dp/0684871580

H1N1 does not know borders and to date we are unclear of its origin.  The U.S. has pretty good sanitation and living standards, yet the highest numbers of cases so you would think the odds so far are in your favor.  Nope- the virus is more contagious than seasonal flu the Geneva-based WHO says.  In seasonal flu, each person who comes in contact with someone who’s sick has a 5 percent to 15 percent probability of illness, according to a statement posted the WHO’s Web site. In swine flu, the probability increased to 22 percent to 33 percent.

The World Bank in October noted that a “moderate” pandemic like the 1957 Asian flu could kill 14.2 million people and shave 2 percent from the global economy in the first year.  The odds are they will loose more than a few customers.
