NORAD announced it is holding a two day exercise over Washington, D.C. next week while North Korea threatens nuclear weapons.  

The above video features Alex Jones on False Flag Operations and Obama’s stance at the nuclear security summit and his Nuclear Posture Review assertion that terrorists will get hold of nuclear material and use it in an attack.
http://www.infowars.com/
http://www.prisonplanet.tv/

In a measure to prevent attacks we have military exercises from sea to shining sea, here and abroad.

From the press release –http://www.norad.mil/News/2010/072710.html

“The North American Aerospace Defense Command and its geographical component, the Continental United States NORAD Region (CONR), will conduct a two-day exercise, Falcon Virgo 10-10, beginning Tuesday in the National Capital Region, Washington, D.C.  

The exercise is comprised of a series of training flights held in coordination with the Federal Aviation Administration, the National Capital Region Command Center, the Joint Air Defense Operations Center, Civil Air Patrol, U.S. Coast Guard and CONR’s Eastern Air Defense Sector.  Tuesday’s and Wednesday’s flights are scheduled to take place between midnight and 2 a.m.  

Exercise Falcon Virgo is designed to hone NORAD’s intercept and identification operations as well as procedural tests of the NCR Visual Warning System. Civil Air Patrol aircraft and Coast Guard HH-65 Dolphin helicopters will participate in the exercise….”   

It seems all this practice has kept the U.S. safe.  Since Sept. 11, 2001, CONR fighters have responded to more than 3,000 possible air threats in the United States and have flown more than 57,000 sorties with the support of Airborne Warning and Control System and air-to-air-refueling aircraft.  

NORAD has responded to more than 900 possible air threats, and ran 6,000 sorties since July 2009.   

That’s pretty impressive!  Thank you to our armed forces.   

Alas, there is this little tiny hole in my tinfoil hat that makes me wonder if when these exercises occur, does the U.S. intellegence departments know some disaster or threat may be imminent?  How many of the 900 possible air threats has the main stream media covered?  How many are classified?

Words we never want to hear again; Northeast Air Defense Sector—DAT Audio Files—11 Sep 2001.  “This is not an exercise.”

On the other side of the world, North Korea’s Kim Jong-il has promised “retaliatory sacred war” in response to U.S. and South Korea’s naval exercise, Operation Invisible Spirit, that began on Sunday in The Sea of Japan.   

Over the next four days 8,000 American and South Korean troops, 200 fixed-wing aircraft and 20 ships will test the countries’ combat readiness against a backdrop of rising tensions and a flurry of belligerent statements from Pyongyang…  

“The army and people of the [North] will legitimately counter with their powerful nuclear deterrence the largest-ever nuclear war exercises,” the commission said in a statement carried by the country’s official Korean Central News Agency.  http://www.globalpost.com/dispatch/japan/100725/north-korea-u.s.-military  

North Korea is threatening to use nuclear weapons and we have a large portion of ships and troops not in U.S. territory to protect us.  Does the timing of Exercise Falcon Virgo that is designed to, ” hone NORAD’s intercept and identification,” seem coincidental?  

Who knows if North Korea even has a weapon of mass destruction to reach the US.  It would appear though, they could reach the U.S. forces in the Sea of Japan. Lest you forget, there are 28,500 American troops stationed in South Korea that could be targets.  Recall previous launches here https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/10/12/north-korea-fires-missiles-happy-columbus-day/ .  

Exercises happen all the time, most without incident.  We asked in 2009 if a NORAD exercise would preclude a disaster in Chicago in this article.  https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/07/21/norad-red-flag-exercise-targets-chicago/  Nothing was reported in the news.  All was well for everyone except Blago, and a few more Chicago cronies.  Mission accomplished.  

Earlier this week, U.S. secretary of state, Hillary Clinton accompanied by the U.S. defense secretary, Robert Gates, were in South Korea.  They urged North Korea to end its “campaign of provocative, dangerous behavior.”  

The Response?  

We reiterate, North Korea’s Central News Agency quoted the statement from the National Defense Commission as saying that the military exercises are “undisguised challenge” to the international community’s hopes to ease tensions on the Korean Peninsula. It also said North Korea will “legitimately counter with their powerful nuclear deterrence the largest-ever nuclear war exercises to be staged by the U.S. and the South Korean puppet forces.” http://www.theepochtimes.com/n2/content/view/39879/  

Will they?

We pray this is just a test, a test of the emergency system and not a Red Flag Warning that escalates into war. 

Just what is President Obama doing about any of this? After his morning roundup of briefings today, he’s off to Edison, New Jersey at the Tastee Sub Shop for a meet ‘n greet with small business owners.  Later in the day a DNC fundraiser at the Four Seasons Hotel, NYC and another at some one’s private residence. http://www.whitehouse.gov/schedule/president 

As for the dates of the NORAD drill over D.C., “No events have been entered for this day,” for the President or the Vice President.

Will they be conveniently out of town for the NORAD drill?

Voted Obama? Embarrassed Yet?

Internet Censorship is coming your way.

How embarrassing that this country elected President Obama.  I don’t care for the white part of him or the black part.  Throw the race card right out the window.  I do find it admirable that voters can see past a persons color, and disgraceful that they couldn’t see what Joe The Plumber warned of the socialistic tendencies coming down the pike.  I don’t mean those stupid Recovery Signs down the Turnpike either.

Will Ahrcanum and similar web sites now be black listed by Google and the government new Internet police for saying I disagree with the President?  Should I fire myself for expressing my opinion? Does that constitute an Internet Crime?  http://www.cyberlawenforcement.org/

From day one, President Obama’s campaign was an orchestrated masterful manipulation of the press and continues to this day, as the Administration seems to be working towards an all out government run media including the Internet.  Transparency my ass.

The right to free speech, the communication of ideas and opinions has its history in numerous documents. John Locke established the individual as the unit of value and the bearer of rights to life, liberty, property and the pursuit of happiness. It is supposed to be the role of  Government to protect these rights, not take them away.  The First Amendment to the Constitution states,  “Congress shall make no law… abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press”.

You have to take your chances on the repercussions of having free speech though.  Can’t be yelling “Fire” in a theatre and common decency kind of things.  Helen Thomas broke protocol when sharing her personal views that the Jews in Israel should go home.  In response, she was forced into retirement as a columnist for the Hearst News Service. http://religionclause.blogspot.com/2010/06/helen-thomas-dean-of-white-house-press.html

Gen. Stanley McChrystal, a former black ops leader and commander of US and NATO forces in Afghanistan couldn’t keep his opinion to himself either.  Even prior to the Rolling Stone article put the end to his career, [sic, previous] “remarks earned him a smackdown from the president himself, who summoned the general to a terse private meeting aboard Air Force One. The message to McChrystal seemed clear: Shut the fuck up, and keep a lower profile.” http://www.rollingstone.com/politics/news/17390/119236

McChrystal may have been unimpressed with the commander-in-chief from the start, but the General worked for him. Not always smart to disrespect the boss.  The President on the other hand, is supposed to work for you and I and defend the Constitution, not against us or it. 

Fighting homegrown terrorism by monitoring Internet communications is a civil liberties trade-off the U.S. government must make to beef up national security, the nation’s homeland security chief said Friday. 

As terrorists increasingly recruit U.S. citizens, the government needs to constantly balance Americans’ civil rights and privacy with the need to keep people safe, said Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano. http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2010/06/18/napolitano-internet-monitoring-needed-fight-homegrown-terrorism/

I buy the nation’s security plea, not the censorship Kool-Aid sale. Not withstanding, I still hate referring to America as The Homeland.   Is there some sort of global conspiracy to limit free speech and on-line discussion?  There are Internet censorship bills in Australia, the U.K., and the U.S. with more to come.  Say nothing of the black holes where there is no Internet at all. 

Will America Turn into the Black Hole of The Internet?

 By a 3-2 vote, the FCC on June 16 — under the chairmanship of Julius “Caesar” Genachowski — moved the agency toward the power to regulate the transmission component of broadband Internet service. Genachowski — Obama’s Harvard law classmate — thus sets the table for regulating the Internet under rules that were written for the telephone company in the thirties. http://www.renewamerica.com/columns/vernon/100712

The Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) has received fleeting public attention, yet it has been quietly evolving for a number of years.  On it’s face ACTA is described as a countermeasure directed at the rise of counterfeit goods, medicines and pirated copyright protected material, including “piracy over the Internet”.

If officially ratified, however, ACTA would mark the formation of a major new global legal infrastructure with relation to standards on intellectual property rights enforcement.  It would also see the formation of an international governing body to oversee implementation of the agreement. http://truth11.com/2010/07/12/acta-flagship-of-the-growing-internet-censorship-armada/

Obama Administration regulatory czar Cass Sunstein is on the record in support of the latest in a series of proposals to regulate political speech on the net. 

“The site’s of one point of view agree to provide links to sites of the other point of view. So if you’re reading a conservative magazine, they would provide a link to a liberal site. And vice versa, just to make it easy for people to access to competing views. Or maybe a popup on your screen that would show you an advertisement or maybe even a quick argument for a competing view

If we could get voluntary arrangements in that direction, it would be great and if we can’t get voluntary arrangements maybe Congress should hold hearings about mandates.” http://deathby1000papercuts.com/2010/05/obama-czar-cass-sunstein-internet-mandates-spread-the-link-love/

Government mandates for the Internet?  In his book Democracy and the Problem of Free Speech Sunstein says there is a need to reformulate First Amendment law. And recall Sunstein, ” has a secret aim to push a radical animal-rights agenda in the White House. Sunstein supports outlawing sport hunting, giving animals the legal right to file lawsuits, and using government regulations to phase out meat consumption.   http://www.prweb.com/releases/Cass-Sunstein/Animal-Rights/prweb1868134.htm

No steak dinner, no unrestricted Internet?  Pop up ads for a competing point of view? Rewrite the First Amendment?  Where’s Ted Nugent when you need him?

Further challenging first amendment rights is the DISCLOSE Act under the guise of election reform.  http://www.opencongress.org/bill/111-h5175/show The DISCLOSE Act is a desperate attempt to influence the November elections, and minimize Democrat losses writes http://biggovernment.com/dbossie/2010/07/12/will-senate-democrats-stifle-free-speech/

Discussions, bills and laws like The Fairness Doctrine and Net Neutrality aren’t going away anytime soon.

There is some hope for keeping the First Amendment in tact and further limiting big brother with the Enumerated Powers Act that requires that each bill cite its authority under the Constitution. http://www.opencongress.org/bill/111-s1319/show The sad thing about this bill is that it takes a bill or legislation to remind our elected officials to do something they should have been doing all along- you know, a little something called upholding the Constitution to which they were elected to and swore an oath to support and defend.

Oh that’s right, the President is after all a Constitutional Lawyer, I think.  I’ve never seen his diploma or birth certificate for that matter but numerous times he has made reference that the Constitution does not address social inequities. 

DC Downsizer Michael Mitchell of Alaska compiled this list from Article I of the U.S. Constitution. These are all the powers that the Congress has-

  1. Borrow money
  2. Regulate commerce among the states
  3. Regulate naturalization
  4. Regulate bankruptcies
  5. Coin money
  6. Fix weights and standards
  7. Punish counterfeiters
  8. Establish post offices
  9. Establish post roads
  10. Record patents
  11. Protect copyrights
  12. Create federal courts
  13. Punish pirates
  14. Declare war
  15. Raise an army
  16. Provide a navy
  17. Call up the militia
  18. Organize the militia
  19. Makes laws for Washington, DC
  20. Make rules for the Army and Navy

Mitchell continues, “According to the 10th Amendment, all else is controlled by the states or the people.” https://secure.downsizedc.org/etp/campaigns/87/background

Gee, I don’t see government mandate for health care in there.

In case you’ve forgotten what else The Constitution says, here’s a great link at http://www.upinjustice.com/knowyourrights.htm

Based on Constitutionality or a coming to their senses, Democratic governors are already complaining about the Obama administration’s first lawsuit against Arizona’s immigration enforcement law, Attorney General Eric Holder is already planning a second.  When setting one little pinkie toe on U.S. soil, one of the first things you have is the right to remain silent, thanks to the Constitution.

Perhaps President Obama should revisit his use of free speech by talking about things like the BP Oil Spill which he hasn’t bothered to mention publicly since June 22. http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/remarks-president-after-cabinet-meeting  Among today’s duties he will honor the WNBA champion team.  http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/president-obama-honor-wnba-champion-phoenix-mercury-white-house.  By the way we are about to begin war games off the Korean Peninsula.  Comment please?

When it comes to governments restricting the Internet I am reminded of George Carlin’s, “Seven Words You Can Never Say on Television”.  Today, I take the opportunity to write:  Shit, Piss, Fuck, Cunt, Cocksucker, Motherfucker, and Tits, just because I still can. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seven_dirty_words

How’s that for freedom of speech and freedom of religion too? Now I have to go to confession to saying and writing those dirty words.

Updated July 15- The federal appeals court ruled that the FCC agency’s ban on “fleeting expletives” unconstitutional. Great reading at http://reason.com/archives/2010/07/15/the-obsolescence-of-federal-ce/

False Flag Alert?

Volcanic Ash is supposedly to blame for grounding a significant portion of Air Travel throughout Europe. 

All flights in and out of the UK and several other European countries have been suspended as ash from a volcanic eruption in Iceland moves south. Up to 4,000 flights are being cancelled with airspace closed in Norway, Sweden, Finland and Denmark among others.

The UK’s air traffic control service (Nats) said no flights would be allowed in UK airspace until at least 0700 BST on Friday amid fears of engine damage.The airspace restriction was the worst in living memory, a spokesman said. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/8621407.stm

It is an eerie reminder of 9-11 in the U.S., when all commercial planes were grounded.  For now the skies are quiet in most of the U.K., except for maybe a fighter jet or two.

Volcanic Ash Plume

Or link to the image here http://www.sat24.com/Eyjafjallajokull-volcano.aspx.

One of the largest NATO military drills is being held today, rather conveniently while volcanic ash is keeping all commercial aircraft on the ground around the U.K.  That won’t stop one of the world’s largest military exercises from going forward though.

 A large fleet of warships, submarines, frigates and aircraft from 10 NATO countries and one non-NATO member has congregated here to take part in the ‘Brilliant Mariner’ maritime exercise in the Baltic Sea.

The 10-day long multi-nation naval drill began here on April 12, 2010. It will engage the NATO forces to respond to a number of challenges, including asymmetric or terrorist threats, maritime security operations and embargo operations “in a realistic scenario,” a NATO statement said.

The exercise will see participation of 6,500 defence personnel, 31 warships, 28 aircraft and four submarines that will operate in the Northern European waters and airspace.

The French Navy, which is commanding the maritime exercise, has sent 10 of its warships and 30 aircraft.

Its naval fleet includes aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle, amphibious warship Mistral, under-attack submarine Emeraude along with other frigates. The aviation fleet includes Mirage fighter aircraft, Hawkeye airborne early warning aircraft and Atlantique 2 maritime patrol aircraft along with other planes.

The countries participating in the huge military drill are Germany, Belgium, Denmark, Estonia, USA, France, Norway, Netherlands, Poland, United Kingdom and Sweden. Sweden, a non-NATO member, is taking part in the exercise as a ‘Partnership for Peace’ country.http://www.brahmand.com/news/NATO-countries-begin-Brilliant-Mariner-naval-exercise/3645/1/10.html

Things are not so quiet in Israel either!  

Israel is sending a strong message to Iran, US and the world as it readies itself to undertake military drills to strike Iran’s nuclear sites if it gets green signal in future from its government. Israeli military will prepare itself to launch massive aerial attack to bomb nuclear sites in Iran. The drill also includes civil defense drill to prepare civilians(emphasis mine) for the retaliatory attack from Iran too.

No doubt Israel is making it clear to Iran that in case of any eventuality they can bomb more than dozen nuclear sites and moving convoys in a matter of few days or hours.  The on-the-ground preparations, training exercises involving F15 and F16 jets, tankers and helicopters indicate that threat can translate into action.

Israel will need consent from US to carry out such a big operation.  Without US intelligence input it would be impossible to get all information about exact locations of nuclear facilities. But by carrying out this drill Israel is showing a kind of preparedness to take on Iran alone. The fate of Middle East crisis now depends on new Israeli government, Obama and Iran. http://trendsupdates.com/israeli-military-drill-to-strike-iran%E2%80%99s-nuclear-sites/

In the U.S. Northcom, Southcom, FEMA, NORAD and other U.S. government agencies were running drills before 9-11, and before the recent Haiti quake just to name a few.  Read more coincidences between disasters and drills here https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2010/03/23/earthquake-tsunami-military-drills-precipitate-catastrophe/.

During a conference, Obama said in response to a question on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict that such disputes are “costing us significantly in terms of both blood and treasure.” http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-3876404,00.html 

We can only hope Obama does a better job.

While it never made the national news, the U.S. and South Korea were playing war games this week with live ammo:

RODRIGUEZ RANGE, South Korea — The U.S. and South Korean militaries on Thursday staged a large live-fire exercise 15 miles south of the Demilitarized Zone, but officials insisted the event was not meant as a warning to North Korea.

“There is not a message we are sending to any particular audience,” said Col. Thomas C. Graves, commander of the 2nd Infantry Division’s 1st Heavy Brigade Combat Team. “The message that comes out of this is the strength of the [U.S.-South Korean] alliance across the board.

“We are doing an integration at the combined arms level — at the tactical level — that probably isn’t seen anywhere else in the world. How the North reacts to this is certainly not something I can predict.”

The exercise came on the birthday of Kim Il Sung, North Korea’s founder and the father of current leader Kim Jong Il — and a day after the Korean Central News Agency reported the recent staging of a major military exercise in North Korea to mark the anniversary. http://www.stripes.com/article.asp?section=104&article=69377

That’s three major military drills going on at the same time in the same week. This week also saw another huge earthquake, a cyclone, major flooding and volcanic eruptions.

Convenient timing, would you say? 

SNAFU.

UPDATED article at https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2010/04/16/volcano-ash-cloud-conspiracy-photos-reveals-alien-faces-ufos/ Where did you put your tinfoil hat? You’re gonna need it!   The Eyjafjallajökull Volcano in Iceland has not only spewed ash and lava, but more conspiracy. Floating ash clouds, an alien like face on the surface, a ufo caught on tape, mandatory evacuations, restricted air space and no seismic activity.

Stand1990 

Conspiracy, science fiction, reality and all things aside, this Swine Flu, or Influenza H1N1 is one huge threat.  I wonder if this latest pandemic could end up in a Captain Trips reality.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Captain_Trips  Captain Trips was the name of a superflu from Steven King’s best seller, The Stand.  I just finished my third read of the 1000+ page book and recommend it highly. Captain Trips, A6 is also mentioned in Night Surf, Wolves of the Calla, Song of Susannah, and The Dark TowerSadly I am stuck on page 25 of Atlas Shrugged- yawn.

In The Stand, a form of superflu called Captain Trips originates in an American biological weapons lab under the Mojave Desert in California. The official code name of the virus development project was “Project Blue.”  Believed to have been created by breeding a hybrid of influenza and an AIDS like illness, 99.4% of the human population is vulnerable and the disease is universally and swiftly fatal to those that catch it.  Some people have immunity (although it is implied that the survivors are chosen by a higher power). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Captain_Trips 

King outlines the total breakdown and destruction of society through widespread violence, the failure of martial law to contain the outbreak, and eventually the death of virtually the entire population.  Science Fiction?  Future Reality? Martial Law in America?  Fema Camps? We pray that a higher power could save humanity, but we also pray for cures that so far, have not stopped deaths inevitable knock on the door. 

Whatever your personal thoughts on God, the invention of vaccines and medicine have for the most part prevented millions of deaths.  So did Satan create the virus?  Who would might we identify as evil today?  Government?  Pharmaceutical Companies?  Scientists? Terrorists?  http://snardfarker.ning.com/profiles/blogs/vaccins-the-who-dr-robertson is convinced it is the God of Science. 

Dr. Leonard Horowitz, Harvard trained in emerging diseases implicates an “Anglo American network of engineers in a conspiracy to commit genocide.”  http://www.healthyworldstore.com/downloads/mexican_flu_2009-special_report_by_dr._leonard_horowitz.pdf” 

Dr. James S. Robertson, England’s leading bioengineer of flu viruses for the vaccine industry, and avid promoter of U.S. Government funding for lucrative “biodefense” contracts, along with collaborators at the US Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), helped Novavax, Inc., in Bethesda, Maryland, produce genetically-modified recombinants of the avian, swine, and Spanish flu viruses, H5N1 and H1N1, nearly identical to the unprecedented Mexican virus that has now spread to the United States. The outbreak was precisely timed to promote the company’s new research and huge vaccine stockpiling contracts, according to Dr. Horowitz http://ukpmc.ac.uk/articlerender.cgi?artid=1242433

In response to the outbreak, Novavax is making a VLP, virus-like particle vaccine, candidate against the outbreak strain. Using Novavax’s recombinant technology, the VLPs will be genetically matched to the H1N1 influenza strain recommended by CDC, with the potential to induce specific and protective immunity. Further, the VLP approach has the potential of a rapid response as vaccine may be made and released for administration within 12 weeks of knowing the genetic sequence of the outbreak strain.http://www.pharmaceuticalonline.com/article.mvc/Novavax-Announces-Enrollment-In-The-Second-0001?VNETCOOKIE=NO  That is some impressive timing I’d say.  So much for long term studies, efficacyand long term side effects.

Whatever our government’s involvement in possibly creating the virus in the first place, it has been working on a program for responding to a mass superflu outbreak as early as 2001:    

HHS has also developed the National Pharmaceutical Stockpile Program (NPS) into a major national security asset. The purpose of the NPS is to be able to rapidly respond to a domestic biological or chemical terrorist event with antibiotics, antidotes, vaccines and medical materiel to help save lives and prevent further spread of disease resulting from the terrorist threat agent. Operated by HHS’s Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the NPS Program would provide an initial, broad-based response within 12 hours of the federal authorization to deploy, followed by a prompt and more targeted response as dictated by the specific nature of the biological or chemical agent that is used.  One of the NPS “12-hour Push Packages” was brought to operational status on September 11th. CDC delivered a 12-hour Push Package of pharmaceuticals and medical supplies by ground, vendor managed inventory by air, and a technical advisory team in New York City, all within 7 hours of the order to deploy. Three out of the four non-military aircraft in United States airspace on the night of September 11th were carrying National Pharmaceutical Stockpile assets and personnel to New York City.

The Stockpile Program was developed as a supplementary response asset mainly to address biological and chemical terrorism. But following the events of September 11th, the program is now being expanded for response to an all-hazards event. The Stockpile presently is able to provide a full course of anthrax post-exposure prophylaxis to more than 2 million persons. Secretary Thompson has directed that the Stockpile development be accelerated to provide increased anthrax prophylaxis capacity for 12 million persons, and CDC will reach that level of response within the next 12 months. We will also add four more push packs to the eight already located across the country, making more emergency supplies available and augmenting our existing supplies of 400 tons by another 200 tons.

But we must accelerate the production of vaccines and antibiotics and invest in essential programs to ensure the speedy and orderly distribution of antibiotics and other supplies in the event of a biological event. That is why the President has called for an additional $1.5 billion in federal funding for those areas most critical to our ability to respond to bioterrorist threats. His proposal includes include $643 million to expand the National Pharmaceutical Stockpile and $509 million to speed the development and purchase of smallpox vaccine.

Just last week, Secretary Thompson announced that Acambis Inc., with support from its subcontractor, Baxter International Inc., has been awarded a $428 million contract to produce 155 million doses of smallpox vaccine by the end of 2002. Production of the vaccine under the new contract could begin as soon as this month and, once completed, will bring the total number of vaccine doses in the nation’s stockpile to 286 million by the end of next year, enough to protect every United States citizen, if needed. In light of increasing concerns regarding the possible use of biological agents such as smallpox in acts of terrorism or war, HHS is undertaking efforts to stockpile as much vaccine as needed to protect the nation in the event of an outbreak of smallpox. http://www.hhs.gov/asl/testify/t011205.html

Ironically, Baxter Pharmaceutical after numerous faux pas including distributing Avian Flu vaccines, and AIDS type II tainted plasma is the WHO’s leading choice in developing an H1N1, Swine Flu Vaccine. https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/03/11/vaccine-drug-deadly-costs-mistakes-threaten-pandemic/.  Baxter also has a plant within 50 miles of ground zero for the flu outbreak in Mexico City, Mexico.  Gee, I thought smallpox was eliminated.

Curiously during the morning of 9/11, the U.S. was sponsoring five war games exercises paralyzing standard operational procedures. http://www.oilempire.us/wargames.html  National Pharmaceutical Stockpile Program (NPS) has been renamed- The Strategic National Stockpile (SNS) Whatever name you give, the game shows we are unprepared for a pandemic outbreak. 

Let’s hope practice makes perfect: 

The next National Level Exercise 2009 (NLE 09) is scheduled for July 27 through July 31, 2009. NLE 09 will be the first major exercise conducted by the United States government that will focus exclusively on terrorism prevention and protection, as opposed to incident response and recovery.  NLE 09 is designated as a Tier I National Level Exercise. Tier I exercises (formerly known as the Top Officials exercise series or TOPOFF) are conducted annually in accordance with the National Exercise Program (NEP), which serves as the nation’s overarching exercise program for planning, organizing, conducting and evaluating national level exercises. The NEP was established to provide the U.S. government, at all levels, exercise opportunities to prepare for catastrophic crises ranging from terrorism to natural disasters.  http://truthjunkie.wordpress.com/2009/04/20/fema-national-level-exercise-2009-nle-09/ Mmm?  Practice for pandemics like Captain Trips, Swine Flu, Avian Flu, and Ebola too? 

Hope the terrorist don’t choose the end of July for an attack, we’ll be busy- just like we were on 9/11.
