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 —

 tamiflu

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.

6.  It might save lives just to spite itself.

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.
