Revisiting the Swine Flu HysteriaFriday, January 1, 2010
I’ve been waiting patiently for this perspective to appear in mainstream print. The Wall Street Journal Swine Flu Journal reports:
Global health officials’ response to the swine-flu pandemic reflects major improvements in flu-fighting capabilities in recent years, but limited vaccine supplies, crowded emergency rooms, and other challenges show they still aren’t fully equipped to combat a deadlier scourge, the World Health Organization’s chief said.
While a second wave of infections caused by the H1N1 virus has ebbed in North America and Western Europe, transmission of flu remains intense in Central and Eastern Europe and parts of southern Asia, and health authorities must monitor its spread for another year or more, WHO Director-General Margaret Chan said in an interview this week.
“It is premature to say the pandemic has peaked world-wide,” she said. “The situation needs to be watched and monitored at least another six to 12 months.” The virus could still mutate to become more severe, she warned.
State bureaucrats ’round the world, and especially in the US, can’t stand it. They are absolutely disappointed that their perfidious pandemic was a bust, a flop, and a non-pandemic. Of course, there are no limited vaccine supplies or overwhelmed emergency rooms – that was a liar’s cacophony for the purpose of using the swine flu epidemic as a control mechanism.
What I am seeing from the press, now, is a bunch of inept fear mongering about a “third wave” of the swine flu – and this comes at a point when the general public long ago lost interest in the so-called “second wave.” The CBS Connecticut website ran a “third wave” bulletin that says since a third wave is “possible,” people should still be vaccinated. Federal despots, unwilling to be left out of either wave and the ensuing propaganda fever, have chimed in with the CDC’s warning of a third wave in January. The story states, “The CDC reports fewer people getting sick. That may not be the case come January.” Remind me of what happened to the “second wave,” or even the first?
I am amused each time I go into a Walgreens, or drive by a CVS, health clinic, doctor’s office, or urgent care center. They all have signs in the windows, on the doors, and outside in front of their buildings: “H1N1 – get your shots here.” No one wants the vaccination so they have to push it and advertise it. Next thing you know they’ll be doing “buy one get one free” H1N1 shots. In fact, many places are giving away free vaccines. Isn’t this the same vaccination for which the US government declared – over and over and over – there would be an extreme shortage, and we must all hurry and get it if such a “blessed” opportunity appears on the horizon? Again and again, Americans were propagandized and being conditioned to believe that there was an undisputed, full-scale, worldwide health emergency that would soon mushroom into an uncontrollable killer flu, and our chances of being victims of some hideous health horror were far higher than tripping and stubbing your toe.
Government, along with its obedient media arm, perpetually warned Americans of massive deaths, overrun hospitals, a shortage of lung machines, and the lack of available medical personnel to handle the massive overrun of resources that would be the result of a ginormous swine flu outbreak. Every day, every hour, the Swine Flu Journal, the Swine Flu Times, the Swine Flu Post, and all of those other organs of fear mongering and swine journalism, kept us up to date with play-by-plays of the expected date of H1N1 vaccination arrivals, the current shortage, and the expected time frames to relieve the shortage. And the media was never short on advice about what to do if you couldn’t manage to find an available swine flu vaccination for yourself. Zillions of dollars were put into the pockets of the large and powerful Big Pharma interests who lobbied to sell the swine flu as a killer affliction and paid off scores of politicians and health bureaucrats to have it declared a pandemic. The US government spent at least $2 billion dollars on vaccinations for Americans so that every single American could suck up Big Pharma’s moneymaking unhealthy juice.
So what is the result of the government’s Big Plan going kaput? The fizzle and flop was similar to the one that occurred, recently, in a Nigerian’s underwear somewhere over Detroit. The whole thing fell flat on its face because the totalitarian government of Washington D.C. overplayed the drama and fear, and like a broken record, their overreaching orders, advice, and dictates began to sound more and more like vaudeville one-liners.
And repeatedly, the little people that couldn’t – that is, the true-blue followers, the government faithful, the non-thinking pliant beings – insisted that I was crazy for exposing this all as a crock from the beginning.
