WHO Continues To Deceive: Assumes That Ukraine Plague Is H1N1 Swine Flu?

  • The question of whether this is the A/H1N1 virus still remains. I am of the opinion that it is highly unlikely. This is an interesting article. At the end of it, there is a 2 hour interview of Alexander S. Jones(formerly of the Natonal Institute of Health) by Dr Ott. How much of the article is true? Judge for yourself.
      
    The World Health Organization (WHO) is continuing to deceive the world by stating sweeping assumptions about the Ukraine pandemic. Despite huge differences in transmission and death rates, the agency stated Tuesday that it was valid to assume that most of the cases of influenza reportedly combing through the Ukraine were caused by the pandemic A(H1N1) virus.
     
    There is very little left to be respected of the WHO. After months of using
    junk science and contradictions to conceal actual swine flu cases, they are now launching phase two of their deceptive operation: Convince the world that a more lethal strain of flu is still the same H1N1 virus.
     
    Infectious disease expert Dr. Donald Lau explained that the chances of the Ukrainian pandemic being the same H1N1 virus that has infected the world are very low. “The statistical probability of this being the same H1N1 virus are infinitesimally small.” Dr. Lau stated that the high viral transmission rates are extremely unusual for H1N1 and there is almost certainly some type of new virus, or a lethal recombination that has occurred.
     
    Dr. Lau speculated that the Ukraine government or the WHO may be withholding and/or suppressing information for some unknown reason. “There must have been some misrepresentation of actual deaths versus infection rates.” Dr. Lau has estimated the probable fatality rate of this new virus to be close to 0.5 percent which is astronomically higher than the H1N1 virus in any part of the world.
     
    Ukrainian authorities on Sunday launched an urgent appeal for help from world powers after it imposed drastic measures to tackle a sudden surge of flu-like illness in the country.
     
    Almost 500,000 cases of influenza and acute respiratory illness have been reported, according to approximate but official Ukrainian figures cited by the WHO. “Given the potential significance of this outbreak as an early warning signal, WHO commends the government of Ukraine for its transparent reporting and open sharing of samples,” the UN health agency said in a statement.
     
    “As the pandemic virus has rapidly become the dominant influenza strain worldwide, it can be assumed that most cases of influenza in Ukraine are caused by the H1N1 virus,” the agency said. “Judging from the symptomalogy of the reported victims, it seems highly improbable that there are less than one-hundred deaths considering the amount of infections stated,” said Lau. The dominant H1N1 influenza strain has not been capable of producing such a large amount of infections or deaths in such a short period. “The H1N1 swine flu virus is mild in comparison to the influenza strain currently attacking the Ukraine, it is not the same virus or strain as what we’ve seen,” added Lau.
      
    The expeditious rise in infections and deaths in the past few days raise many concerns that the virus is transmitting very efficiently. Spikes in cases have been reported throughout the northern hemisphere, but the increased fatalities and the frequency in hemorrhagic cases in Ukraine have particularly raised concerns.
     
    The highest rates of “acute respiratory illness/influenza-like illness” were found in western areas, while they were also increasing rapidly around the capital Kiev, according to the WHO. Eighty-one people have died as a result of flu and acute respiratory infections, the Ukrainian health ministry said, but the pandemic A(H1N1) virus has been confirmed in only one of the fatal cases.
     
    The WHO said a team of specialists who arrived in the country on Monday will initially focus on the Lviv region, where reported “severe” cases of acute respiratory illness “have been especially high.”
     
    Samples from Ukraine have also been received by the WHO’s influenza research laboratory in London for tests. “Many questions remain to be answered,” the WHO said. “The outbreak in Ukraine may be indicative of how the virus can behave in the northern hemisphere during the winter season, particularly in health care settings typically found in eastern Europe,” it added.
     
    Dr. Ott’s interview with Alexander S. Jones:
    Speculations Surrounding Ukraine Plague
     
    Hour 1         Hour 2
     
    Alexander S. Jones, formerly of the National Institute of Health feels strongly that a change may have been made to the hemoglutanin gene with possibly other gene changes on the virus. He stated in an audio interview with Dr. Ott (featured above), that this new flu strain “seems to be 10 times as lethal as the original” H1N1 virus.

Is India Clearing The Way For Gold ‘MoonShot’?

  • My answer is: most assuredly. You bet! Whatever quantity of gold the IMF or western banks sell, there are many Asian central banks who will buy them all. China alone will gobble up 10,000 tons without the blink of an eye. They have US$2.3T to spend on gold. Is gold far better than the USD? It is obvious: most definitely without any doubts! Are the Chinese thinking of buying gold? Adrian Ash writes:
     
    “The question now is who buys the rest of the IMF gold?” asks Bart Melek at the $375 billion BMO Capital Markets in a note to clients. Following India’s surprise 200-tonne purchase announced on Tuesday, “We suspect it may be China, other Asian countries, Russia or even India again,” says Melek. “They hold relatively little gold relative to their very large foreign exchange reserves, and may want to diversify away from US Dollars.”
     
    “China’s gold is much cheaper” than IMF gold, however, notes Li Yang, a former member of the Chinese central bank’s monetary policy committee, and now a senior researcher at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, speaking to Reuters.The world No.1 producer since 2008, China is now also the world No.1 private gold consumer market.
     
    “It’s cheaper for us to buy gold from the Chinese market,” agreed an un-named People’s Bank official, “but it doesn’t help diversify our huge foreign exchange reserves.” “Even if China bought half the world’s annual gold supply, it would only cost a few tens of billions of dollars, which is tiny compared to China’s huge reserves. “Even if it’s sold at a market price, we should still buy,” counters Xia Bin, head of a key Beijing think tank advising the State Council cabinet, making plain that his was a personal view.

     
  • Even a small country like Sri Lanka has announced that they are buying gold.
      
    Sri Lanka c.bank buying gold to diversify reserves
    NEW DELHI, Nov 5 (Reuters) – Sri Lanka’s central bank has been buying gold for the past five or six months as it diversifies its reserves amid volatile markets, the bank’s governor said in an interview on Thursday. ‘We have been fairly strong accumulators of gold reserves over the past few months,’ Sri Lanka Central Bank Governor Ajith Nivard Cabraal told Reuters in a telephone interview from the southern Indian city of Chennai.
      
    ‘We haven’t stopped yet,’ he added, declining to quantify how much gold the central bank had bought or how much of the more than $4.8 billion of the country’s reserves were in gold. ‘Many countries are today diversifying. They are also looking at intrinsic value of their reserves, so gold would be a natural candidate for that kind of reserve accumulation,’ he said.
     
  • I have no doubts that many Asian central banks have already started buying gold quietly! MarketWatch reports:
      
    Does India like gold, or dislike Washington’s anti-gold dollar domination? Let Mary Anne and Pamela Aden tell the story. Their Aden Forecast first came to fame in the great gold bull market 30 years ago. The Adens are careful and adroit traders, and have a strong track record according to Hulbert Financial Digest, but they were speculating that gold might ultimately reach $5,800 when I last looked. (
    See Oct. 8 column.)
     
    Last night they wrote in a hotline: “Gold is the big news this week. It hit another new record high today, quickly closing in on the $1,100 level. This followed yesterday’s $31 jump, which clearly propelled gold well above its previous high. The news that India bought 200 tons of the [International Monetary Fund's] gold (half of what it’s planning to sell) at these high prices, and in one fell swoop, was incredibly bullish. It was viewed as a strong sign that gold is not too expensive and the Indians, who have a long gold history, obviously believe it’s going high.” The Adens conclude: “Our next target for gold at $1,200 is looking more realistic.”
     
    The Adens are chartists, and their rationalizations for what they see in their chart patterns are designedly an afterthought. Still, this rationalization is distinctly 1980-ish. There’s a newer group I call the “radical gold bugs,” gathered around Bill Murphy’s Le Metropole Cafe subscription Web site, who have a distinctly different take, based on a close study of market conditions. (
    See March 31, 2008, column and Le Metropole Café Web site.)
     
    Murphy has long maintained, often in blistering terms, that what he calls a “moonshot” in gold’s price is being frustrated by an alliance of government agencies trying to sustain a financial bubble and their chosen instruments in the private sector. In other words, the radical gold bugs were Goldman Sachs conspiracy theorists long before everyone else was. (
    See July 20 column.)
     
    India has long played an important role in the radical bugs’ thinking because they regard Indian consumer offtake as a critical factor in the gold price. But they view the Indian central bank’s recent gold purchase, not so much a play on the price, as a sign that the gold-hostile U.S. Treasury is losing its grip. Murphy wrote this week: “The fact that a central bank has in fact stepped in to take the gold is likely to greatly excite those who have been predicting such an event.”
     
    He continues: “They are probably right to be excited. Notwithstanding the Indian population’s interest in gold, the economic authorities there have traditionally been rather disdainful of the metal. For many years, it has been clear that Washington has been strongly opposed to central bank interest in gold, out of jealousy for the U.S. dollar. That India feels able to defy American preferences in this way is an ominous sign for the dollar hegemony.” In the radical bugs view, this means the main obstacle to the gold’s “moonshot” is breaking down.

Dutch Pull Pfizer Vaccine Batch After Infants Die!

  • Do we still think vaccines are safe? Wanna risk the lives of your beloved babies? We are all quite sure it has nothing to do with the vaccines, right? Just a coincidence when people drop dead after vaccinations. MSNBC reports:
      
    Dutch authorities say they have banned use of a batch of Pfizer’s Prevenar, or Prevnar, after three infants died within two weeks of receiving the anti-infection vaccination. “On average about 5 to 10 deaths are reported annually after babies get vaccines,” said a spokeswoman for the Dutch health institute RIVM. “We now have three cases in a short period, that is unusual and the reason for suspending the batch.”
      
    She said RIVM was investigating the cause of the infants’ deaths. Other batches of Prevenar, known as Prevnar in the United States, will continue to be used. Pfizer spokeswoman Gwen Fisher said preliminary investigations by the company and health authorities had found no link between the vaccinations and the deaths.
     
    110,000 doses of anti-infection drug
    She said the company initiated the “quarantine” of the batch which she said contained 110,000 doses of Prevenar, used to prevent pneumonia and related infections. Fisher said the three infants also received two unrelated other vaccines as part of routine immunizations. No other Prevenar batches were suspended and infants in the Netherlands will continue to be vaccinated with it as part of routine immunization, she added.
     
    A spokesman for the European Medicines Agency in London said its officials were working with the Dutch authorities to find out if there were any safety issues with the vaccine batch.

Former UK ambassador: CIA Sent People to be ‘Raped With Broken Bottles’!

  • America has fallen from its lofty heights. The once great nation of the brave and free, is now an oppressive ‘Evil Empire’. Americans must wake up and take their country back from the Satanists who have taken over. The sad fact is: it looks like the country can only be taken back via the blood of its patriots! It is coming to a point where violent revolution looks inevitable.
     
  • Why do you think the PTB are deploying all their bio-engineered viruses and deadly vaccines? Why are the Illuminati ruling elite so keen to send more American young men to fight murderous wars? Who is going to defend the country, families, communities…. when the young who can fight are sent off to be killed and maimed in a foreign country? Why are veterans now classified as potential terrorists? Tyranny is planned! If you don’t comply with their deadly desires: you will be killed. Remember Nazi Germany? RawStory reports:
      
    The CIA relied on intelligence based on torture in prisons in Uzbekistan, a place where widespread torture practices include raping suspects with broken bottles and boiling them alive, says a former British ambassador to the central Asian country. Craig Murray, the rector of the University of Dundee in Scotland and until 2004 the UK’s ambassador to Uzbekistan, said the CIA not only relied on confessions gleaned through extreme torture, it sent terror war suspects to Uzbekistan as part of its extraordinary rendition program.
     
    “I’m talking of people being raped with broken bottles,” he said at a lecture late last month that was re-broadcast by
    the Real News Network. “I’m talking of people having their children tortured in front of them until they sign a confession. I’m talking of people being boiled alive. And the intelligence from these torture sessions was being received by the CIA, and was being passed on.”
     
    Human rights groups have long been raising the alarm about the legal system in Uzbekistan. In 2007, Human Rights Watch declared that torture is “
    endemic” to the country’s justice system. Murray said he only realized after his stint as ambassador that the CIA was sending people to be tortured in Uzbekistan, country he describes as a “totalitarian” state that has never moved on from its communist era, when it was a part of the Soviet Union.

Death Toll Still Rising in Ukraine’s Flu Outbreak ! 95 Dead & 633,877 Infected. Flu Fears Spread From Ukraine To Afghanistan !

  • Situation is still not improving. Reports suggest that this flu started in late October ie last week! I noticed reports appearing of 30,000 infected and 30 dead last Thursday and now there is a 20 fold increase in reported infection within 1 week! Situation on the ground appears hazy. Could this really spread 20x in 1 week or is it just low reported figures last week? Last week unconfirmed reports were coming in of a mortality rate of 1% before official government reports brought it much lower. 1% mortality rate is scary. The Spanish flu mortality rate was 2-3%!
     
  • There is no doubt about its seriousness and the death via hemorrhagic pneumonia is too similar to the 1918 Spanish flu not to be concerned. I still doubt that this is the A/H1N1 swine flu. It does not have a high mortality rate and there are usually underlying health conditions ie other sicknesses, that caused death. So far there are no indications of underlying health conditions in the deaths reported. Something else is happening. Some strange bio-engineered mutation or the release of a new virus. The MSM is strangely quiet on Ukraine too!
      
    Kiev – The death toll in Ukraine’s flu outbreak continued to rise on Thursday. A total of 95 persons have died from flu-related symptoms since the disease struck Ukraine’s western provinces late last month, said Zinovy Mytnik, vice health minister, in comments reported by the Interfax news agency. A total of 633,877 Ukrainians nationwide have registered with health authorities as suffering from the flu, though some have recovered since the disease’s late October outbreak, Mytnik said.
     
    Ukraine’s Ministry of Health on Wednesday gave a total of currently infected at some 470,000. The particularly virulent A/H1N1 flu strain, or swine flu, was likely responsible for a significant proportion of the infections, based on laboratory testing thus far, Mytnik said, speaking at a Kiev press conference. Since the beginning of the flu outbreak, Ukraine’s Health Ministry had sent 31 samples from persons infected with flu to a British laboratory to be checked for the presence of swine flu, of which 15 tested positive.
     
    A former Soviet republic, Ukraine lacks a modern public health infrastructure and, since the beginning of the flu outbreak in late October, has seen severe shortages of even simple medical supplies such as protective masks and flu remedies.No Ukrainian laboratory is capable of testing for the presence of swine flu, Mytnik said.
      
    International medical assistance continued arriving in Ukraine on Thursday, with European Union nations taking the lead. Top contributors were Slovakia, Austria, Hungary and Poland – the last being the first country to respond to a Ukrainian October 31 appeal for foreign aid, according to an Intefax report. EU-donated medical supplies en route or already in Ukraine included protective masks, respiration equipment and surgical gloves. Emergency shipments of the swine flu treatment Tamiflu, produced in Switzerland, first began arriving by cargo plane to Ukraine on Sunday.
      
    Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko, on a visit to the western city of Chernovtsy, near the epicentre of the flu outbreak, said government efforts to control the flu’s spread were working. ‘There is no need to to invoke a national emergency,’ she said, according to a Korrespondent website report.
      
    Tymoshenko’s government has attempted to control the flu outbreak with the imposition of a partial quarantine of eight western provinces most badly hit by the disease, a military-style mobilization of state-owned fabric and clothes factories to mass-produce protective masks, and limits to allowable public gatherings.
       
    Flu Fears Spread From Ukraine To Afghanistan
    Concerns over swine flu are sweeping countries from Ukraine to Afghanistan as governments scramble to deal with reported outbreaks of the disease.
      ……
    In parts of Russia, local authorities have introduced a so-called “mask regime” to prevent the spread of flu. RFE/RL’s Russian Service reports that in the Khabarovsk region in Russia’s Far East, all theater and cinema visitors are obliged to wear surgical masks. So are workers at shop counters and public transportation employees.
     
    The same regulation was introduced in Russia’s Baikal region – Zabaikalye – with a fine of 500 rubles ($17) for anyone caught ignoring the rules. The first death caused by the H1N1 virus was reported in Belarus today. Officials say forensic tests confirmed the presence of the virus in a 37-year-old woman from the city of Drahchyn, who died last week after she returned from Ukraine.
     
    In Turkmenistan, the government has said nothing officially about a flu outbreak. But in the capital and the regions, individual doctors are reporting cases of ordinary and swine flu with widely varying numbers of incidents and fatalities. The official silence is heightening public fears. In the Balkans, some countries report numerous swine flu infections, others almost none. Serbia, with 169 confirmed cases and two fatalities, has extended the autumn school vacation in hopes of curbing the spread of the disease.
     
    “This morning [November 3], I made the decision after consultation with epidemiologists and the Ministry of Health,” Serbian Minister of Education Zarko Obradovic said on November 3, “to extend the autumn break in schools so that the kids do not come back to school before next Wednesday [November 11] because the incubation time of the virus lasts five to seven days. “So the best thing is to keep kids at home so that we stop its spread.”
     
    Of the confirmed cases in Serbia, the last 35 have been among school-age children. Demand for gauze masks have soared among popular belief that they can help prevent infection. One factory, in Gornji Milanovac, is making some 60,000 masks a day by working around-the-clock and already has advance orders for all its production through the end of this year.
     
    However, in neighboring Montenegro, the government has reported no cases of swine flu. Opposition members have asked the parliament to open a debate to determine whether this reflects the reality of the health situation in the country. In Bosnia, two to three cases of swine flu have been reported.
     
    Iranian Schools Closed
    Much farther east, Iran’s health officials are also warning the public of the need for additional precautions amid reports of a worsening flu situation. The Mehr news agency quotes Majlis Health Commission spokesman Mohammadreza Rezaei Kuchi as saying that 3,000 Iranian citizens have been infected with the H1N1 flu across the country. He said 28 have died of the disease. Some 70 schools in Tehran and many other schools around the country have closed as a health measure.
     
    Afghanistan has declared a nationwide public health emergency and closed all education institutes for three weeks. Afghanistan’s Health Minister Said Mohammad Amin Fatami says there have been 700 confirmed cases, with 273 of those among foreign soldiers stationed in the country. Eight Afghans have reportedly died so far. Fatami says Afghanistan has a laboratory in Kabul equipped to diagnose H1N1 infections and counts on this to help check the spread of the disease.
     
    “We have all the advanced technology and lab equipment to diagnose and isolate and identify the H1N1 influenza virus,” he said. “And we are grateful to the U.S. government for providing us this support.” The Afghan Health Ministry has launched a public awareness campaign since the first case of H1N1 was detected in July.
     
    The campaign of leaflets and television and radio advertisements emphasizes the need for people to wash their hands several times a day as the simplest and most effective thing they can do to help stop the spread of any flu virus.
