S&P 500 Volumes and Cash Flow Fading!

S&P500 - 13 Nov 09

One Last Hurrah ? Source: jessescrossroadscafe.blogspot.com

  • How long can this manipulated rally last? It has gone way beyond my expectations. I would not encourage anyone to short the market. Speculative blowoffs can send stock prices ridiculously high. Remember Nasdaq dot com bubble? It went from a ridiculously high of 3000 to an even more stratospheric high of 5133. Of course, we all know what happened after that: a cliff dive to 1114! To be short or long in this market is highly dangerous. Always apply stop loss positions should you be in it. It is going to be a repeat of the dot com crash! It will go 80% lower ! The question is when?
     
  • What evidence is there to suggest the momentum is running out? Is this the last hurrah before the cliff dive? The retail sheeple will be taken for a ride once again by the Wall Street banksters in this con game! Jesse Cafe Americain opines:
     
    They got the Dollar General IPO out the door and a few more deals were done so its “Mission Accomplished” for Wall Street. The SP 500 looks to be completing a hand off to the retail crowd of overpriced paper in this cycle of the price pump. Time to dump the bids and let it drop, with maybe one more push higher at most to suck in a little more money from the productive economy, or at least what is left of it.
     
    Be aware. This rally is a ponzi scheme thinly disguised even by US Wall Street standards. But do not try and get in front of it, to short it prematurely.
        …….
    People forget what the markets were like in the late 1970’s when the pits were dead and the average person wanted nothing to do with the US equity markets. The creation of 401k’s and more gambling tables like the options exchanges helped to perk things up. This latest generation of jokers will not stop until they have trashed the markets once again.
     
    Expect more token reforms like position limits out of this crew in key commodities, with loopholes big enough for a vampire squid to slip through without inconvenience like the other ‘reforms’ being crafted by Barney, Tim, Larry, and Chris.
     
    America, what are you becoming?
     
    “How are the mighty fallen, and their devices of empire perished…”

Deaths After Swine Flu Vaccination!

  • Here are some of the recent cases:
     
    Child of two and woman of 18 die after getting swine flu shot in Finland
    At least two people have died in Finland after getting the swine flu jab. A two-year-old child died one week after getting the shot. According to the local media, the shot “came too late and couldn’t save the child.”
     
    In addition, an 18-year-woman died in the Päijät-Häme Hospital District in Lahti one week after getting the jab, according to the newspaper Helsingin Sanomat, which, however, attributes the death to the swine flu virus and not the vaccine.
     
    Two Germans died after taking swine flu jab: state prosecutor to investigate
    A 46-year-old man in Wuppertal, Germany, has died one day after receiving the swine flu jab. The man was found dead at midday by his co-workers. The state proseuctor for Wuppertal has ordered an autopsy to be performed, according to a report in Die Welt.
     
    In addition, the Geman newspaper Bild has reported that a 65-year-old woman died in Thuringia following a jab.
     
    EIGHT DEATHS IN SWEDEN REPORTED DUE TO SWINE FLU JAB, ADMITS MEDICAL PRODUCTS AGENCY
    The Swedish government’s medical products agency has said that it has received reports of 8 people dying in connection with GlaxoSmithKline’s Pandemrix swine flu jab from doctors and patients so far.

Ukraine Flu Outbreak: Virus Is a Mixture of H1N1 and Parainfluenza, Causes Cardiopulmonary Failure! Indicates BioWeapon?

  • This is a translation (by Infowars Ireland) on an interview reported by UNIAN News Agency. It gives us a better understanding as to what this really is. There seems to be conflicting views on whether this is pneumonic plague. Dr Bachinsky is saying the lungs of those who died are not black in color as indicated in other reports.
     
    Interview with Dr. Victor Bachinsky
    Professor Victor Bachinsky, PhD., is a coroner in the Chernivtsi region of Ukraine. He provides evidence which indicates that parainfluenza mixed with the H1N1 virus, not pneumonic plague, has caused so much illness in Ukraine. Yet more strains of influenza which have combined, a strong indication that we are dealing with a laboratory developed bio-weapon.
     
    [Translated from Russian]
    Based on autopsies, we have come to the conclusion: it’s not pneumonia, but cardiopulmonary insufficiency and cardiogenic shock … The virus enters directly into the lungs, there is bleeding … Antibiotics should not be used …
     
    Why do we have such a high mortality rate in the country? Because people are going to pharmacies to get medicine instead of going to their doctors to be treated … No it is not pneumonic plague. It’s all nonsense … antibiotics do not help … Those with strong immune systems will survive. People with weak immune systems will succumb to the illness … Face Masks provide 30% extra protection. Wearing glasses gives an additional 10% protection, that is 40%, because the virus penetrates the mucose membranes.
     
    The Head of the Chernivtsi regional forensic bureau, Professor Victor Bachinsky PhD, makes a strong statement: all the victims of the virus in Bukovina (22 persons aged 20 to 40 years) died not from bilateral (double) pneumonia, as previously thought, but as a result of viral distress syndrome, i.e. the total destruction of the lungs. We caught up with Professor Bachinsky, to find out how he came to this conclusion, and how people can protect themselves from this disease.
     
    Professor, you said earlier that the virus, from which many people have died – is a mixture of types of parainfluenza and influenza A/H1N1. How do you cure this disease?
     
    The question of how to treat this virus is not up to me. I am a pathologist. I just found out what it is and made an exact diagnosis. It is important to provide the correct treatment based on diagnosis.
     
    There are strict protocols and standards of treatment in medicine. If a doctor treats a patient who dies, their relatives can make a complaint that they were not treated properly (misdiagnosed).The Ministry of Health has set the protocols and standards of treatment for each diagnosis. If diagnosed correctly, the treatment should be correct …
     
    In the Chernivtsi region 18 people have died. We studied all the history and evidence from this disease, preclinical, clinical, resuscitation. When we perform an autopsy organs and tissues have histological studies (cell analysis) and we concluded that it was not pneumonia, and has no relation to pneumonia whatsoever.
    These results are the foundation to ensure that doctors who treat this disease all over Ukraine, change their tactics and standards of care.
     
    Can this new virus be cured?
    It depends on the immune system. If a person’s immune system is strong, they will overcome it. There are people who carry this strain of H1N1 and remain on their feet and don’t even realise they are sick.
     
    Antibiotics definitely should not be taken. Antibiotics are the reason we have such a high mortality and infection rate in this country, because people go to the pharmacy, describe their symptoms to the pharmacist and ask for drugs. They buy antibiotics, take them, this lowers their immune system and as a result they become sick. If prescriptions were required to buy these medications, like in other countries, this would not have happened. It is the ability to buy antibiotics over the counter without a prescription which has done so much harm to the State.
     
    During autopsies, what did the lungs look like? Were they really black, which gave rise to so much talk of pulmonary plague?
    No, they are not black … This is not pneumonic plague. It’s all nonsense. Pneumonic plague has a very different morphology. We have, for example, 60 thousand people who became sick and 23 have died. With pulmonary plague, we would now have a mortality rate of 59 thousand …
     
    This is a viral attack that destroys the lungs.
    It turns out that not only in Bukovina, but also throughout the Ukraine people did not die from pneumonia, but from this toxic strain?
     
    Yes, It’s not pneumonia! This destruction of the lungs. This strain is very toxic, and if the immune system is weak, there is bleeding in the lungs. In the lungs there is a tiny structure – acinus, which looks like a bunch of grapes. When you breathe, oxygen enters this tiny “bunch of grapes” ( pulmonary alveoli ). On the surface of the acinus are the capillaries, where red blood cells saturate with oxygen and give blood, which supplies all tissues and organs in the body.
     
    And once the virus enters the lungs – hemorrhaging begins immediately in the acinus. A continuous hemorrhage … It takes several hours. In the blood fibrin is formed, and from it – giolinovaya membrane, resembling a plastic bag. It envelops the acinus, and the person breathes in oxygen, but it is not transferred to the tissues. And people just gasp. There is a cardio-pulmonary insufficiency and cardiogenic shock. People die of cardiogenic shock. And there is no pneumonia. Pneumonia – an inflammation, which is treated with antibiotics. Antibiotics cannot help at any stage. There should be absolutely different treatment.
     
    And how about “Tamiflu” – does it help?
    This is not an antibiotic, it is an antiviral drug, which should be applied on the second or third day of the disease. But you can not use Tamiflu as a preventitive, because it is toxic.
     
    What are the best measures to resist the disease? Is it advisable to use a mask, garlic, vitamin C?
    The primary method of prevention is a face mask. This give 30% extra protection. If you wear glasses – it is 40%, because the virus enters through the mucous membranes.
     
    It is necessary to improve the human immune system. Not only now, but in general. Garlic, onions, wild rose, viburnum (guelder rose), raspberries, citrus fruit, honey, and other fruits and vegetables – whatever you want. Those with a strong immune system will survive. Those with weaker immune systems will succumb to the disease.
     
    We have a lot of people in Ukraine who like shopping at the open markets. If we can avoid open markets, the less people will be in contact with each other and more lives will be saved.
     
    You have contacted the Health Ministry and advised them to review the standards for treatment of patients. What did they say?
     
    We sent them all our data, the necessary protocols and standards of treatment, our diagnosis. But it is clear that decisions cannot be instantaneous.
     
    And why until now has nobody else known about this disease? What were the leading specialists in the Ministry of Health doing all this time?
     
    Perhaps this is due to the fact that there are scientists who are working on a purely theoretical basis. And there are scientists who have seen the autopsy results. I practice as head of the regional forensic bureau and as a professor. The fact that we have established this diagnosis – it is not just to my credit, and this is not my personal opinion. This is the opinion of specialists, morphologists and doctors in Bukovina. There are five professors in our group – I just head the group.

British Scientists Testing Ukrainian ‘Super Flu’ That Has Killed 189 People!

  • Another MSM article! So the MSM seem ready to report on what has been happening in Ukraine for the past 3 weeks. The death toll is now 299. Is this the Big One or the trial run for the Big One. Is the Illuminati cabal just testing to see whether they have got the right killer virus ‘formula’? This may be the final test followed by ‘adjustments’ to make it more lethal and thereafter release of the killer virus/viruses. The mortality rate will no doubt rival that of 1918 Spanish Flu: 40 to 60 million dead worldwide! The Mail UK reports:
      
    British scientists are examining the strain of swine flu behind a deadly Ukrainian outbreak to see if the virus has mutated. A total of 189 people have died and more than one million have been infected in the country. Some doctors have likened the symptoms to those seen in many of the victims of the Spanish flu which caused millions of deaths world-wide after the World War One.
     
    An unnamed doctor in western Ukraine told of the alarming effects of the virus. He said: ‘We have carried out post mortems on two victims and found their lungs are as black as charcoal. ‘They look like they have been burned. It’s terrifying.’
     
    Neighbouring Poland has called on the EU to take action, fearing the mystery virus may spread westwards. Prime Minister Donald Tusk has written to European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso and the Swedish Prime Minister, Fredrik Reinfeldt, who holds the EU presidency. The letter said: ‘The character of this threat demands that rapid action be undertaken at the European Union level.’ Russia, Slovakia, Poland, Hungary and Romania have already launched health checks on Ukrainians entering their territory. Slovakia has closed two of five border crossings.
     
    Ukrainian President Viktor Yushchenko has called in the World Health Organisation. A team of specialists are carrying out tests in Kiev and Lviv in an effort to identify the virus. President Yushchenko said: ‘People are dying. The epidemic is killing doctors. This is absolutely inconceivable in the 21st Century.’  
     
    In a TV interview, the President added: ‘Unlike similar epidemics in other countries, three causes of serious viral infections came together simultaneously in Ukraine: two seasonal flus and the Californian flu. ‘Virologists conclude that this combination of infections may produce an even more aggressive new virus as a result of mutation.’  Four men and one woman have died from the flu in Lviv, said emergency hospital chief doctor Myron Borysevych.
     
    Two of the dead patients were in the 22-35 age group, with two others over 60. He diagnosed the disease as viral pneumonia. ‘We have sent the analyses to Kiev. We don’t believe it’s H1N1 swine flu. Neither do we know what kind of pneumonia it is.’  Universities, schools and nurseries have been closed, public meetings have been banned and theatres shut. The virus from the Ukraine is being tested at the Medical Research council labs in Mill Hill North London .
     
    A spokesman said: ‘We do not have a time scale for the results of the tests, although some preliminary results have been obtained. I cannot tell you what they are. ‘We did not have enough of the virus samples so we will have to grow some more before we can come to a conclusive decision about its nature.’

French Lady Down With Guillain Barre After Swine Flu Vaccination!

  • This looks like a repeat of 1976 again. Why are Big Pharma and the PTB so keen to push this corrupt vaccine onto us? After all, it is totally paid for by the government, so, they have their mammon. What is their agenda? This vaccine can cause auto immune diseases like Guillain Barre. Are the PTB trying to make us sick so that Big Pharma can continue to reap profits from treating us? Or is there something even more sinister? Like a bio-weapon to trigger the real killer pandemic?
      
    Paris – A young woman was diagnosed with a crippling illness possibly linked to the vaccine being used protect the French public against swine flu, the health ministry said late Thursday. The woman, who was only identified as a health worker, came down with Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS) six days after receiving her swine flu vaccination.
     
    GBS is a rare crippling disease that could lead to death if severe pulmonary complications and nervous system problems are present. Every year, about 1,700 cases of the disease are diagnosed in France. Health Minister Roselyne Bachelot said the case diagnosed was light and that the woman was recovering. However, news of the apparently vaccine-related illness is likely to dampen enthusiasm here for getting vaccinated against swine flu.
     
    In 1976, the United States halted a vaccination programme against swine flu because some 500 inoculated people came down with GBS, with 25 of them dying. At the time, researchers concluded that the vaccine led to one additional case of GBS per 100,000 people.
     
    The French government began its public vaccination programme Thursday, starting with persons in contact with infants; health professionals; and high-risk individuals, notably those suffering from respiratory ailments.
     
    A poll made in October revealed that only about 17 per cent of the French planned on being vaccinated.

Canada: Ontario’s Deadly Swine Flu Surge, 24 dead in 72 hours.

  • I am on the alert for unusual flu ‘events’. Like the sudden surge of 300,000 Norwegian swine flu cases in 1 week. I still am of the view that this is a bio-engineered weapon to depopulate the earth. However, we must always be highly critical of such reports but keep an open mind. Situation on the ground can be pretty fluid and independent confirmation though needed, sometimes are just not forthcoming. The reason why we need to be highly critical is because we know that the PTB uses fear mongering to push their deadly vaccines onto the populace. So, some reports may be mis-information to drive us to take the vaccine. Vancouverite reports, (comments in red are mine):
      
    OTTAWA – In a shocking surge, 24 Ontario residents have died in less than 72 hours from Swine Flu, the Public Health Agency of Canada reported on its website. Ontario’s startling fatalities reported between November 10 and 11 a.m. EST on November 12 catapults the death toll from 37 reported on Nov. 10 to a total of 61. That is twice the figure of dead in Quebec and the highest of any province in Canada.
     
    Hospitals from coast to coast are swamped with admissions and visits to emergency departments in the past week with other provinces reporting record admissions from Swine Flu since its outbreak was noticed in April. (Can someone confirm?? Is it really so bad or is this fear mongering?)
     
    Nova Scotia and Manitoba reported one death each between Nov. 10 and Nov. 12 to take Canada’s national fatality toll to 161 with much of the spike happening since the second wave of Swine Flu began in October. ……. 46 Canadians have died  between November 5 and November 12 with heavy rates of hospitalizations across the country.

Ukraine Dead Increase to 299 – Still No Sequences! WHO Evades Ukraine Sequence Questions at News Conference.

  • We are all still waiting for the WHO to release the DNA sequences. It will be a great help to all. The symptoms and severity far exceed that of A/H1N1. So, I doubt this is just the swine flu! It is also getting quite apparent that Big Pharma is making use of the situation in Ukraine to sell more of their A/H1N1 vaccines!
     
    Recombinomics Commentary 22:55
    November 15, 2009
     
    1,364,939 Influenza/ARI
    75,862 Hospitalized
    299 Dead
     
    The above numbers represent the latest update for the Ukraine Ministry of Health.  Once again the number of dead increased by 17, but weekend numbers tend to be lower than weekday reports.  The 199 dead are almost double the 155 reported week ago.  The increased number of dead includes those from locations in central and eastern Ukraine.  Last Sunday 13 of the 27 reporting regions had not exceeded the epidemic threshold, but today only 5 regions remained below the threshold (see map).
     
    There has been more recent media coverage which have suggested that the high number of fatal cases was linked to late treatment or a lack of Tamiflu.  However, at least 6 of the fatalities were
    healthcare workers and most of the reported deaths were after the warning was issued and schools were closed down, suggesting that many, if not most cases, were not due to late treatment.  The initial WHO report indicated the time between disease onset and hospitalization was 5-7 days, but the more recent report from Ukraine cited a 3-7 day lag, which again suggested that many die in spite of awareness, modest time differentials between symptoms and hospitalization, and appropriate treatment.
     
    Moreover, 90 of the initial
    cases were describe as having a hemorrhagic component, which again raises concerns about small genetic changes, especially in the receptor binding domain. Answers to questions about such changes have been evasive, and the sequences have not been released by Mill Hill.
     
    The sequence silence remains deafening, and erodes public confidence in agencies controlling these samples and sequences.
     
    WHO Evades Ukraine Sequence Questions at News Conference

    Phil Serafino, Bloomberg: Dr Shindo……..I have a second question also which may not be your area of expertise but have you heard anything about the mutation of the virus or has it changed at all – are we looking at anything different than a few months ago.
     
    Dr Shindo: Well, I can answer that question first. The virus is quite stable. It hasn’t changed……..
     
    Joseph: This is Joseph from Kuala Lumpur – I am from the Sun Media……I just want to ask whether or not any slight mutation even a drift variant has been noticed so far.
     
    Dr Shindo: Amazingly this virus is very stable and part of the reason, virologists (are saying) is because of the lack of pre-existing immunity in population so that virus doesn’t have to mutate to escape from people’s immunity. So it’s quite stable.
     
    The above comments are from the WHO update on Thursday, announcing new recommendations on the use of anti-virals to treat pandemic H1N1. The two questions above are reporters who were looking for comment on small changes in H1N1 in general, and Ukraine sequences in particular.  A week earlier Keiji Fukuda made some general comments about the sequences, noting that final analysis would “probably take a couple of days” but in general there were no “big mutations”.  However, “big mutations” just refers to reassortment, and there have been no examples of big mutations due to reassortment.  All sequences reported thus far have the same original constellation of flu genes, one Human, PB1; two avian (PA and PB2); and seven swine (North Americana and Eurasian).
     
    The reporters were asking about “small” mutations, such as drift mutations or those affecting the receptor binding domain.  Sequence changes in the
    receptor binding domain are already published.  One position (225) is of interest because it was associated with the spread and dominance of amantadine resistance (S31N) in seasonal H3N2.  That particular change D225N, has been reported in two sequences from New York, as well as two recent sequences from Sau Paulo, both of which were from necropsy tissue from fatal H1N1 cases.  Similarly, the same position changed during the 1918 pandemic to D225G.  That change has also been reported from the lungs of two other patients who dies in Sau Paulo.  Moreover, a third change at that position (D225E) was seen in the Tamiflu resistant sequence identified in Hong Kong from a San Francisco traveler who had not been treated with Tamiflu.  That polymorphism is widespread and frequently reported in patients from Spain.  Thus, the questions on small changes in sequences were focused on specific small changes, by the answers to the questions were just general comments on the stability of the virus and did not address specific changes in the Ukraine sequences.
     
    The failure of WHO to release the Mill Hill sequences or to even comment on the presence or absence of such specific changes raises questions.  The delay in release of data or comments has led to wild speculation at conspiracy web sites, which is widely carried over the internet, creating significant confusion among those readers, as well as the general public concerned about the excessive and continuing deaths in Ukraine (see map).  These concerns have been heightened by accelerating numbers of H1N1 hospitalizations and deaths throughout the northern hemisphere,
     
    Non-responsive answers on the general stability of the H1N1 will not reduce these concerns. Release of the Ukraine sequences is long overdue.
