Flu Pandemic Propaganda and Profit

Residents of the United Kingdom have received a  propaganda leaflet on the so-called swine flu pandemic. In addition to instructing the commoners on how to sneeze, the leaflet explains government plans for pandemics.

“While the current situation is serious, there’s good reason for us to be confident that we can deal with it.” How will the government deal with the next pandemic and the one after that? By stockpiling expensive drugs — Tamiflu and Relenza — that do nothing to prevent the flu.

“There is no evidence that Tamiflu, the drug being stockpiled by Britain, the United States and Europe, will work if a flu pandemic takes off in humans, according to a review published today by the Lancet medical journal,” the Guardian reported in January. “While the drugs might reduce patients’ symptoms, the authors say the use of Tamiflu could actually increase the spread of the flu virus. If people take the drug and have fewer symptoms they may end up going to work and spreading the potentially lethal virus.”

“Not long ago, President Bush sought to instill panic in this country by telling us a minimum of 200,000 people will die from the avian flu pandemic, but it could be as bad as 2 million deaths in this country alone,” writes Joseph Mercola. “This hoax is then used to justify the immediate purchase of 80 million doses of Tamiflu, a worthless drug that in no way shape or form treats the avian flu, but only decreases the amount of days one is sick and can actually contribute to the virus having more lethal mutations.”

In response to this hype — or rather, the reason for the hype — the United States placed an order for 20 million doses of this worthless drug at a price of $100 per dose. It cost the taxpayers around $2 billion.

SWINE FLU HOGWASH

By Ralph Forbes

An international businessman who performs major work for the Department of Health and Human Services told AFP that fear mongering by Washington and the World Health Organization about swine flu is an attempt to scare people into allowing global control of the healthcare system.
From 300,000 to 500,000 cases of flu are reported in the United States each year and 30,000 to 40,000 die, he pointed out. At the moment of this interview, 100 cases of the flu variant called “swine” had been reported. Yet, all of the major newspapers and news broadcasts breathlessly report on the “swine flu pandemic” to the virtual exclusion of other developments throughout the world. 

Health and Human Service Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and Janet Napolitano, Department of Homeland Security flack, take the absurd position that the United States is under a dire threat of a swine flu epidemic but Mexicans, legal and illegal, should continue to be welcomed as they cross the border into this country. The swine flu outbreak originated in Mexico City, with 2,000 cases so far.
