H1N1 Swine Flu Hoax/Fraud Conspiracy Theories
When the avian flu scare arrived, no one questioned it. This time, things are different. Those with some brains, a memory and internet ingenuity are on the case. Let’s hope this message gets out.
Tamiflu is an antiviral medication used to treat influenza. It will be the prime medication sold to protect citizens from swine flu as it was for avian flu. All healthcare workers, military and essential service workers will need a dose available and it will be bought with your tax dollars.Tamiflu is made and patented by Gilead Sciences and Donald Rumsfeld was the chairman of this company before he joined the Bush administration. When the Avian Flu scare flashed across the television sets of Americans, Gilead Sciences stock went through the roof
First, I want to thank the writer of the cited material. They have shown great courage in publicizing their position. More importantly they displayed the intellectual prowess to rationally and logically explain their position.
At the same time, the H1N1 Swine Flu Pandemic does not require a conspiracy theory to explain why it is simply false or a hoax. A simple examination of the facts and the application of the definition of words show it to be false. In my case, after the first few days went by with only deaths in Mexico, I started to become suspicious.
I kept wondering, "Where are the world wide deaths? Surely if this killed 100 in a couple days in Mexico, more deaths would occur quickly where ever the H1N1 Swine Flu outbreak appears in other countries. Various varieties of the flu make there way around the world every year. Every year more people die from the various strains of "non-pandemic" flu than have died thus far from the misnamed swine flu. Thousands die each year from flu strains that are never labeled “Pandemic” To date, May 1 2009, after more than 8 days of Media Hype and 29 days of identified existence, there are only 260 deaths. The official, confirmed death toll is 12. My sources for these facts are here: Swine Flu Timeline: A Rapid Spread and Confusion over swine flu death toll True Plagues kill hundreds of thousands of people without regard to Political Borders. Simply changing the definition of what constitutes a pandemic does not make this Flu a Pandemic anymore than my defining wealth as having more than 100 dollars in the bank, makes me wealthy. It is dishonest and misleading and worse, in this defining this a pandemic, immeasurable worry and economic damage has been done.
While I am not beyond believing profit could be the motivation for labeling this swine flu strain as pandemic, the economic impact on other equally powerful and ruthless business interests makes this unlikely. If an alleged shadow government exists, during the discussions of what was going to happen next, surely the airlines, shopping mall real estate owners, sports teams, mass transit titans and any other business that required or created crowds to make a profit would have objected.
My preferred position would be that this is just runaway media hype enabled by poorly reasoned definitions of Pandemic lacking insight into foreseeable negative consequences, by the World Health Organization.
That having been said, for the Conspiracy Theorist amongst you: My first cynical thought is that the Mexican had a politically motivated reason for creating a crisis. Such a motive might have been to get powers, or to be released from constrictions of power, that is provided for in Mexican law in the case of a Pandemic. Or, to cover up some other bad news item about to go through the media news cycle. In any case, the story leaked beyond its borders and the rest of the world media, without double checking the facts, jumped on the story to create increased readership and increased revenue.
Another thought would be that some negative news event might have been about to enter the USA Media News Cycle and the US publics attention is being diverted from it. Tea Parties come to mind. and accounting for the 700B bank bailout funds come to mind, AIG comes to mind. AND THE BIGGEST THING TO COME TO MIND IS WHY DEMOCRAT REP. HARMON AND FORMER AG GONZALEZ ARE NOT BEING CHARGED WITH TREASON. See Wiretap Recorded Rep. Harman Discussing Aid for AIPAC Defendants Democrat Harmon was taped by the FBI offering to kill prosecution of spies in exchange for help getting appointed chair of the House Intelligence committee. Then Republican AG Gonzalez killed the Justice Department investigation so Harmon could help defend Republican President Bush in warrantless wiretap hearings. Governer Blagojevich selling a senate seat is not even in the same league as this act of treason and betrayal of the American trust and compromise of American Security.
And finally, one more conspiracy for the more paranoid cynics among us: The USA Government expects Political unrest this summer resulting from the poor economy and corruption related to the bank bailouts, AIG and the 2 Trillion dollar stimulus bill. See Jim Rogers on Bloomberg: There will be civil unrest in the U.S. and other countries (03/17/09) In the USA, the political unrest has gelled into the Tea Party Movement. Perhaps the alleged H1N1 Swine Flu Pandemic is being formed to create the opportunity to declare martial law and prevent public gatherings like the upcoming Tea Party events. Or other political unrest gatherings. Just a thought.
I look forward other True Citizens stepping forward and commenting on whether they believe alleged H1N1 Swine Flu Pandemic is either just simply false on the facts, or a hoax, or hearing your particular speculation on any possible conspiracy theory. Or state the factual and logical case for it be accurate and true.
Have a great and disease free day!
