In searching out how A/H1N1 has come to exist or mutate into existence, my antenna are turning toward Gilead Sciences Inc., the makers Tamiflu.

  • Gilead Science 50% of the Gilead Sciences Inc. stock is owned by  Donald Rumsfeld, Tony Blair, Cindy McCain,  FBI Division 5 William Morris Agency, Tom Brokaw.  Brokaw has replaced the late Tim Russert as host of NBC’s alleged interview show “Meet the Press”.  Retired Republican Senator William Frist of Tennessee has major investments in the bird flu vaccine, virus. http://www.newsfollowup.com/veterans_anthrax.htm 
  • Two French biochemical students, Laurent Bonomo and Gabriel Ferez, joined the list of dead scientists when they were murdered by Israeli Mossad-British intelligence assassination teams on June 29, 2008. Both Bonomo and Ferez were studying at the prestigious London Imperial College researching the origins of bird flu and the link to the alleged vaccines….The two researchers had discovered that the alleged bird flu vaccine, H-7, which was designed to neutralize and stop the H5N1 avian flu virus, had been spliced using DNA to actually create a vaccine and an illness producing virus at the same time. The French students had also discovered that the bird flu vaccine, i.e. a virus, had links to U.S., British and Israeli laboratories associated with the noted Mossad agent, Dr. Philip M. Zackerie.  http://www.americanfreepress.net/html/bio-chemists_murdered_149.html

    Israeli microbiologist, Dr. Zackerie known as “Dr. Zack,” worked for the U.S. bio-weapons lab at Ft. Detrick, Md. where I wonder by some coincidence is where the last Swine Flu Outbreak Occurred.  He was a consultant at the FBI linked company Gilead Sciences Inc. of Boulder, Colo. Gilead Sciences has been linked to the 9-11 anthrax strain and to the bird flu vaccine.

    Blogger Tom Heneghan asserts at http://blogs.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=blog.view&friendId=147509065&blogId=486979763 “that U.S. Army investigators are looking into the actual theft of disease samples tied to the Swine Flu virus that are missing from the bio lab at Ft. Detrick, Maryland.

    This is the same bio lab where researchers study deadly pathogens, including Ebola, Anthrax and Plague and that the operational team unleashing the Swine Flu was a joint U.S.-Israeli Mossad group that transported the Swine Flu in vials from Fort Detrick, Maryland to Fort Dix, New Jersey and on to Mexico City.

    He goes on to note that White House Chief of Staff and former head of the North American Israeli Mossad, Rahm Emanuel, has direct control over the U.S. Treasury, working hand in hand with current U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner.

    Coincidentally or Ironically depending on how you look at it the Army did announce last week that, “An inventory of potentially deadly pathogens at Fort Detrick’s infectious disease laboratory found more than 9,000 vials that had not been accounted for.” https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/06/24/ft-detrick-lab-missing-9000-virus-vials-scientists-still-dying-from-unnatural-causes/

    It is not as if the U.S. and other countries have not been remiss in planning for an influenza pandemic.  There are government stockpiles of small pox vaccines and antiviral drugs from Roche AG and Gilead Sciences Tamiflu, and Glaxo Smith Kine, Niota’s Relenza and who knows what else.  Scientists are working feverishly with numerous announcements that a vaccine will be ready soon.  Novartis announced recently that it has developed the first vaccine batch against A/H1N1.  Obama and HHS have ordered millions worth of vaccine ingredients from its five corporate suppliers and if I recall, nearly one billion in stimulus money targeted toward the flu. 

    Numerous sources are reporting that while A/H1N1 and H3N2 virus are jumping borders it looks like the seasonal H1N1 has mutated into a form that resists Tamiflu, although it is still susceptible to Relenza supposedly.  sourced from   http://www.iii.co.uk/news/?type=afxnews&articleid=7368116&subject=economic&action=article

    “Investors are in a bit of a conundrum. There’s potential for the companies to make some extra revenue, but investors are going to have to hope that the swine flu pandemic gets worse from The Motley Fool http://www.fool.com/investing/international/2009/06/12/be-careful-what-you-wish-for.aspx who outlines the major pharma companies most likely to benefit.

    As it turns out, “Scientists have established the first case of the new H1N1 influenza strain showing resistance to Tamiflu, the main antiviral flu drug,” according to Reuters –http://www.reuters.com/article/healthNews/idUSTRE55S3UM20090629

    “It is well known and expected that influenza virus can mutate spontaneously. The resistance has not changed the capability of the virus to transmit or cause disease, and the assessment is still that this is a relatively mild influenza,”said David Daigle, a spokesman for the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

    This relatively described mild influenza has killed 231 and infected 52,000+ as reported by the CDC, http://www.who.int/csr/don/2009_06_22/en/index.html but that is only the reported cases.

    vaccinelogoEvery Child By Two (ECBT) was founded by Rosalynn Carter and Betty Bumpers in 1991 as a result of the Measles epidemic that killed over 120 people, many of them children. http://www.ecbt.org/ An epidemic that killed 120? My have times changed.  36,000 people died from the flu in the U.S. last year. 2000 are infected with Swine Flu- H1N1 and it is now deemed a level 5 Pandemic.

    http://skepacabra.wordpress.com/2009/05/05/every-child-by-two-takes-their-message-to-congress/ said some deaths could be prevented had children been vaccinated, citing a recent HIB outbreak. Aside from a Haemophilus influenzae type B (Hib) vaccine shortage, there was a recall of the vaccine.  http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/vac-gen/shortages/default.htm 

    TWENTY FOUR immunizations by the age of 2 are listed on the recommended schedule.  Add three more shots-  One to combat annual seasonal influenza and two targeted at the new swine flu virus and the number grows to  TWENTY SEVEN shots by the age of  two.  It is ludicrous.   http://www.cispimmunize.org/IZSchedule_Childhood.pdf  The immune system can only take so much.  Currently, Merck Vaccines is experiencing a “not available for order” backlog for many of its popular vaccines including the Mumps and Rubella shots at http://www.merck.com/e-business/reports/MVC_Supply_Status.pdf  Why would standard immunization production be lagging?

    My tin foil hat’s antennae are twisting-less people are getting vaccinated, yet the supply is exhausted.

    A WSJ report says,” Parental doubts about the safety of childhood vaccinations are leading to outbreaks of largely eradicated diseases like measles and whooping cough, doctors warned in a new report http://online.wsj.com/article/SB124165229009493675.html.  “A lot of folks are counterculture-type independent thinkers [who] do not have faith in all the modern medicine-type stuff .” Counterculture?  Perhaps faith in the modern medicine type stuff of vaccines has to do with making an informed decision and about vaccine potential relationships to autism, recalls, efficacy rates, vaccines potentially causing the illness they were designed to prevent, and having guidelines that recommend twenty seven shots. 

    The American Pediatrics http://aap.org/advocacy/releases/may09vaccines.htm wants parents to have all the information they need to feel confident in their decision to immunize their children,…supporting  parents in making good health care decisions for their children, and vaccines are critical to our efforts to keep our children out of harm’s way.”  What kind of harm are we inflicting with 27 shots in two years? 

    Polio has all been eliminated.  Small pox eradicated, but  I am hardly confident with the vaccine license process and the large number of new vaccines on the horizon. The AAP has developed this information page on Red Book Online to provide current information about the licensure process and AAP recommendations about vaccines. http://aapredbook.aappublications.org/news/vaccstatus.shtml

    An August 2008 APA Report  for Influenza Immunization in children http://www.cispimmunize.org/ill/Flu/Influenza%20Recommendations.pdf, and herehttp://aappolicy.aappublications.org/cgi/content/full/pediatrics;122/5/1135  recommends ALL CHILDREN aged six months and older should receive the flu shot.  APA says that there is thimerosal in some forms of the flu vaccine but the benefits of protecting children against the known risks of influenza far outweigh the hypothetical risks associated with the minute amounts of thimerosal in some currently available forms of influenza vaccine.  Because viruses for vaccines are grown in eggs, neither should be administered to anyone with known allergic reactions (ie, hives, angioedema, allergic asthma, and systemic anaphylaxis) to chicken and egg proteins.” 

    Science has used eggs for years to grow vaccines but what if the eggs are from Avian Flu or H1N1 viral carriers?  The CDC’s own documentation shows reassortment of viruses in ducks, chickens, and turkeys- all egg layers.   Whether it is reverse genetics or creating a hybrid strain through a re-assortment of genes; vaccine work by tricking the immune system into thinking it has been infected with a virus so that it creates antibodies against it.” says the BBC.  It all sounds well and good until you think of the Legionnaire’s Swine Flu outbreak where the vaccine caused more deaths than the virus itself. Remember the Rota Virus vaccine scare that caused painful intestinal twisting?

    What else is in a vaccine?  http://www.cispimmunize.org/pro/pdf/Vaccineingredients.pdf. Weakened live viruses,inactivated viruses, partial viruses, partial bacteria, preservatives, adjutants, additives, formaldehyde, antibiotics,….

    The World Health Organization (WHO) will convene a group of experts May 14 to advise the agency on whether to pull the trigger on production of a vaccine for the novel H1N1 swine influenza virus.  http://www.cidrap.umn.edu/cidrap/content/influenza/swineflu/news/may0609vaccine.html  The medical industrial complex and the the Obama administration is also talking about a second flu vaccine this year  (a series of two shots) in addition to the normal flu season vaccine. The second set of shots would be aimed against the  Swine Flu A/H1N1.  http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/05/05/AR2009050503378.html

    Health officials have asked manufacturers to ramp up production of the seasonal vaccine scheduled for roll out this fall to make way for the possible mass production of a swine flu vaccine.  I wonder if  the recent shortages in common vaccines are due to the fact that manufacturers were already gearing up to make the switch to producing a H1N1 vaccine that they knew in advance would be a threat. “If they are asked to stop doing that it means there will be shortages of the normal (flu) seasonal vaccine and vulnerable people could be susceptible if there was an epidemic of ordinary flu this winter” says http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/8029917.stm 

    The top 20 drug corporations and the industry’s two trade groups, PhRMA and the Biotechnology Industry Organization, which represents biomedicine companies must be frantic with their lobbying to encourage federal funding and authorization for the Swine Flu Shot.  I can see the education campaign now with commercials placed right in the middle of Anderson Cooper CNN’s report or an emergency broadcast alert in the middle of announcing the Idol winner.  How’s that for government propaganda?

    Smallpox is the only human infectious disease to have been completely eradicated yet, “This press release at MSNBC discusses the intent of SIGA Technologies to respond to a recent U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) RFP for treatment courses for people infected with smallpox. This is the latest in a series of contracts related to preparations for outbreaks of diseases either due to biological attack or pandemics. In January the U.S. government teamed with Novartis to begin construction of a factory to produce flu vaccines in vast quantities. For almost twenty years the U.S. military has been buying and issuing anthrax vaccines and Emergent Biosolutions that produces that for them and other government agencies. SIGA states that the RFP calls for HHS to buy 1.7 million courses of antivirals with the possibility of up to 12 million being procured.” http://industry.bnet.com/government/1000812/us-government-to-stockpile-smallpox-antivirals/

    The greater challenge will be tracking any adverse reactions as millions of Americans get multiple vaccinations in a matter of months this fall and winter. “There will be adverse effects to any vaccine. That’s just science,” said Michael Hattwick, who ran the CDC’s vaccine-tracking system during the last swine flu scare.  Clinically significant adverse events that follow immunization should be reported to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS). Guidance about how to obtain and complete a VAERS form is available at http://www.vaers.hhs.gov or by telephone, 800-822-7967.

    I’ d rather take my chance with the flu than the flu shot.

    baseball

    Suddenly the panic button is pushed,  pandemic levels raised, health emergencies declared and as the H1N1 flu continues to spread, the lead story from Google blogs this morning;- Los Angeles Dodgers slugger Manny Ramirez has been suspended 50 games for testing positive under Major League Baseball’s drug policy. No mention of the flu til page 4- some 40 topics behind. 

    Baseball is a game full of cheating- doctoring baseballs, cork bats, watering home plate, steroid use.  The medical community that researches the various Flu’s appear to be in the same league with cheating, but no one is investigating them.  Congressional hearings on steroids- howzabout a hearing on the flu industry?

    Ramirez took the banned substance HCG, human chorionic gonadotropin,  prescribed to stimulate female fertility and testosterone production in men and to treat delayed puberty in boys.  Humph, more likely to stop his balls from shriveling up to eventually looking like a couple of raisins.

    Who has the biggest balls of them all?  The CDC.- touting that the latest H1N1 virus is the first reassortment genotype virus- a mutation of bird, pig and human.  Bullshit. Ramirez is way past puberty to take HCG, and CDC ought to start reading some of it own documented case of re-assorted viruses. 

    Zoonotic infections with swine influenza A viruses are reported sporadically. Triple reassortment swine influenza viruses have been isolated from pigs in the United States since 1998. We report a human case of upper respiratory illness associated with swine influenza A (H1N1) triple reassortment virus infection that occurred in a HUMAN SUBJECT during 2005 following exposure to freshly killed pigs. http://www.pubmedcentral.nih.gov/articlerender.fcgi?artid=2603093f

    An H1N2 influenza virus (A/Duck/North Carolina/91347/01) (Dk/NC) was isolated from a wild duck in the United States in 2001. Genetic analysis showed that this duck virus has the same human/classical swine/avian reassortment genotype as the H1N2 viruses that have been isolated from pigs and turkeys in the US since 1999. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12727349?dopt=Abstract

    This report describes the first isolation of a human/classical swine/avian triple reassortment H3N2 virus from a human. “Since January 2005, H3N2 influenza viruses have been isolated from pigs and turkeys throughout Canada and from a swine farmer and pigs on the same farm in Ontario. These are human/classical swine/avian reassortants similar to viruses that emerged in US pigs in 1998 but with a distinct human-lineage neuraminidase gene” http://www.cdc.gov/ncidod/EID/vol12no07/06-0268.htm

    Jan 2002, Infection of turkeys with swine H1N1 viruses has been documented on several occasions. Sequence analysis of the virus showed that it was a complex reassortant virus with a mix of swine-, human-, and avian-origin influenza gene.
     
     
    The CDC has warned that it’s test panels for the flu may not be accurate, yet way back in 1997 from the Bureau of Microbiology, Laboratory Centre for Disease Control, Tunney’s Pasture, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada-“all segments of the viral genome can be amplified from a single MRT reaction, which can yield valuable sources of products for future genetic analysis. This method should facilitate genetic screening and characterization of influenza virus variants.” http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9316919?dopt=Abstract
     
    During a peak in the 2008 flu season, the CDC said, “that many H3N2 and B viruses making people ill differ from the strains in the vaccine, though the H1N1 viruses continue to match the vaccine.”  They knew damned well the virus was hardly effective saying, “”Slightly more than half of the viruses we looked at in our lab are somewhat different from the vaccine strains and may not be well covered by the vaccine strains.” http://www.cidrap.umn.edu/cidrap/content/influenza/general/news/feb1508flu.html 
     
    They also reported that H1N1 has a resistance to oseltamivir.  Absofrickinglutely incredible is this statement-  Resistance to the older flu drugs, amantadine and rimantadine, remains high this season, and the CDC continues to advise against using them for flu, the CDC report says.
     
    In January of 2004, The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) began 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.  The agency already has made hybrid viruses with H5N1 samples isolated from patients in Hong Kong in 1997, when the virus first caused human disease.
    http://www.cidrap.umn.edu/cidrap/content/influenza/panflu/news/jan1404hybrids.htmlDangerous enough to create a pandemic?  Test it out on a highly populated area like Mexico City and see what happens?  Pandemic preparation, error, or stupidity?
     
    Claiming it is still searching for the origins of H1N1, NPR Reports,5.5.09- “Now where could it have come from?” … “We reckon now, in retrospect, it was probably released accidentally from a laboratory, probably in northern China or just across the border in Russia, because everyone was experimenting with those viruses at the time in the lab.” http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=103711274&sc=emaf
     
    A lab?  So much security.  Score one for the conspiracy theorists, eh?  These same “Biologists say there’s a good chance that the emerging flu strain could establish itself as the dominant strain of influenza in future flu seasons.”  Nothing like blaming the Russians or the Chinese.  Is Baxter Pharmaceutical to blame with a manufacturing plant 50 miles outside of Mexico City.  What about the concerns about potential construction or design flaws designed to contain the world’s most dangerous germs like smallpox and Ebola viruses at the CDC’s Bio safety Level 4 labs in Atlanta?  http://www.ajc.com/wednesday/content/metro/stories/2008/05/15/cdclabs_0515.html
     
    That takes some big balls to tell the public the flu was created in a lab, the tests don’t work, the vaccine doesn’t work, the drugs don’t work, while we provide tax dollars to buy the drugs and vaccines, and then ask the public to get a flu shot.
     
    Baseball is not a game of life and death.  At least Ramirez is taking his punishment like a man whatever is going on with his balls.  I am thinking, the CDC is lying, manipulating facts and has so far, failed miserably to inform the public of the facts only playing the game of fear.  I’d rather play baseball or go to a game, the odds are better no one will lie about the score.  Too bad I have to wait 50 games to see Ramirez.
