The "Pandemic" That Cried Wolf....

I apologize for the length of this post but this is a MUST READ POST!!!

“Only a crisis - actual or perceived - produces real change. When that crisis occurs, the actions that are taken depend on the ideas that are lying around. That, I believe, is our basic function: to develop alternatives to existing policies, to keep them alive and available until the politically impossible becomes politically inevitable.”
-Milton Friedman American economist, statistician, public intellectual, and a recipient of the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics

We need to clarify our position on the swine flu. As you probably know we are not doctors so don’t base your health decisions off this post or any posts for that matter. We have heard kids in public school system are being pressured into signing a contract to agree to take the immunization shot which is disturbing considering the source.

Flu Facts
•In a normal year Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates 36,000 people die from Influenza and over 200,000 are hospitalized EACH YEAR. Source
•So far this year the H1N1 has accounted for only 44,555 cases resulting in 1,588 deaths; this is a death rate of 5.19 per million with 267.89 Cases per million in the US. Source

This numbers come from the CDC which is considered a very reliable source but a three-month-long investigation by CBS News revealed some very different facts. The CBS study found that H1N1 flu cases are NOT as prevalent as feared. The CBS article states:

"If you've been diagnosed "probable" or "presumed" 2009 H1N1 or "swine flu" in recent months, you may be surprised to know this: odds are you didn't have H1N1 flu. In fact, you probably didn't have flu at all."
"The results reveal a pattern that surprised a number of health care professionals we consulted. The vast majority of cases were negative for H1N1 as well as seasonal flu, despite the fact that many states were specifically testing patients deemed to be most likely to have H1N1 flu, based on symptoms and risk factors, such as travel to Mexico."

CBS reports that in late July 2009 the CDC advised states to STOP testing for H1N1 flu, and they also stopped counting individual cases. Their rationale for this, according to CBS News, was that it was a waste of resources to test for H1N1 flu because it was already confirmed as an epidemic. So just like that virtually every person who visited their physician with flu-like symptoms since late July was assumed to have H1N1, with no testing necessary because, after all, there's an epidemic. It's interesting to note that at the same time as the CDC decided the H1N1 epidemic warranted no further testing for cases due to its epidemic status, Finnish health authorities actually downgraded the threat of swine flu.

The graph above shows that a lot of people are being told they probably have the swine flu when they actually do not. This is propagating a “pandemic” that is not a pandemic. We all know the WHO has declared the H1N1 a pandemic but just how reliable is the WHO’s pandemic rating system? Let’s start off with a couple dates.

•On April 29th, twelve days after those two first cases were discovered WHO announced a Level 5 Worldwide state of alert for the prevention of a pandemic. What does this mean? Level 5 is quite high, which is one below the highest level possible. Level 6 means the pandemic is already happening. 1 ½ months later WHO announces Level 6, the maximum level, initiating a global pandemic of H1N1. Some might say ask: Why isn’t there a pandemic every year, if the yearly virus is worse than this new virus? The answer is: in May 2009 the WHO changed the definition of “pandemic” (link) from its then current definition of an infection by an infectious agent simultaneously present in different countries at the same time and with a significant mortality ratio to the proportion of the infected population. They removed from the definition, this mortality characteristic. Therefore the new definition went to describe the pandemic as a simultaneous infection present in various countries and carrying an infectious agent showing any novelty characteristic, thus leaving us unable to know the type of immunity present within the population. This is a definition I’m quoting from the British Medical Journal. Changing the definition of such strong emotional words is a logical fallacy of epic proportions but not in the scope of this article. I cringe to say this but we’ll assume it’s blatantly obvious and move on.
•April 26, 2009, USA declares a Public Health National Emergency based on twenty cases of infection and zero deaths.(part 1)
•October 23, 2009, President Barrack Obama finalizes the declared the swine flu outbreak a national emergency, empowering the health secretary to suspend federal requirements and speed up treatment. His declaration authorizes Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to bypass normal federal regulations so health officials can respond more quickly to the outbreak. (part 2)
•WHO is an International Organization that normally issues recommendations. Then it’s assumed that each sovereign country applies or not the recommendations following its own criteria, its own circumstances, and its own internal research. Now, in case of a pandemic, WHO can give orders. Well, you may ask, what terrible thing may arrive? Well, the mandatory vaccination, which if you refuse could result in a fine up to $1000/day, or you go to prison. Forced vaccinations leave you with absolutely no choice and are one of the ultimate violations of our personal freedoms regarding our decisions about what we put in our own bodies.

This brings us to the vaccine. A source at the NIH admitted that the vaccine(s) were one of the fastest human vaccines in development, according to CBS correspondent Sharyl Atkinson. In order to get these vaccines to market so quickly, the United States government granted "liability protection" to swine flu vaccine manufacturers. This protection allowed the drug companies to fast-track production by adding unlicensed components. In other words you will be taking a vaccine has been licensed without normal safety regulations - and if you suffer adverse reactions, the drug manufacturer is immune from legal liability. This unprecedented power to experiment on the population was given to the drug manufacturers with the passing of the 2006 Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness Act (the PREP Act). This act allows the DHHS Secretary to invoke almost complete immunity from liability for manufacturers of vaccines and drugs used to combat a declared public health emergency, which the "swine flu pandemic" qualifies as. The most problematic aspect of the PREP Act is that it removes all financial incentive to make a safe product. In fact, vaccine makers now have a negative incentive to test it for safety, because if they are aware of problems, then they could potentially be held liable for willful misconduct! As long as they can prove they "didn't know" of any problem, they will not be liable for damages. Hence it's in their best interest to know as little as possible about the adverse reactions it might cause. It seems unimaginable, but you and your children are now being enlisted as an unpaid human trial subjects for experimental, fast-tracked vaccines like the swine flu vaccine. Source

The risks of these, and the current fast-tracked swine flu vaccine, are truly unknown at this time. Source

There are some concerns with some of the ingredients found in the vaccines and some are very troubling. Some shots will contain the mercury-based preservative thimerosal, which some believe to be harmful to children. The CDC claims there is no evidence of this. However, a US Congressional Report on Mercury in Medicine, released in 2003, claimed that there is a link between thimerosal and the development of autism, along with other brain development disorders. Additionally, some vaccines use squalene, an immune adjuvent that causes the immune system to react in a powerful and unnatural way. The purpose is to reduce the amount of vaccine needed per dose. The American Journal of Pathology published a study in 2000 which cited a possible link between adjuvants and arthritis and other chronic inflammatory diseases. Critics claim the use of adjuvants was another unsafe result of the vaccine being rushed out the door. Source

According to Dr. Kent Holtorf, an infectious disease expert, the vaccines with thimerosal has 25,000 times the amount of mercury then would be considered toxic by the FDA if it were in food or water. Remember since this is an “epidemic” it does not have to pass normal FDA standards.

With regards to autism and vaccines there are different reports studying Amish communities due to their extremely low autism rate (1 in 15,000 compared to the nation average of 1 in 175). Amish tend to be home schooled and do not take vaccines. You can read more here and here. Excerpt: “Dr. Mayer Eisenstein told us he is not aware of any cases of autism in never-vaccinated children; the national rate is 1 in 175, according to the CDC. “We have a fairly large practice,” Eisenstein told us. “We have about 30,000 or 35,000 children that we’ve taken care of over the years, and I don’t think we have a single case of autism in children delivered by us who never received vaccines. “We do have enough of a sample,” Eisenstein said. “The numbers are too large to not see it. We would absolutely know.” Keep in mind Amish refrain from a lot more than vaccines so take the above with a grain of salt.

Conclusion: I am not against vaccines by any means, just unnecessary ones. I think this is an unnecessary vaccine and while it might not seem like this is a big deal I will explain why it could be. Assuming this will be the normal flu season and the normal amount of deaths will occur two possibilities I could easily see happen.

•The Obama administration will say they saved the world from the swine flu when they didn’t. This will give them the benefit of the doubt next year when there’s a new “pandemic” and they have the ability, or will give the states the ability, to mandate vaccines. This of course would be un-American and against everything America stands for. (Freedom if you’ve forgotten)

•The Obama administration, CDC, and WHO will all be ridiculed for their overreaction and will lose their creditability. This is by far the worse of the two scenarios because if/when there is a legitimate pandemic people will assume they are overreacting and ignore their recommendations since they assume the new definition of “pandemic”.
