UPDATE – again:11/20/2009; 11/18/2009: What a campaign! (Hold your breath, stand back in awe! Or you’ll get a mask…)

Another pandemic week of horror is over. Now we all sit save and sound in our homes and are happy, that we’re still alive. This plague, millions of people…
Oh, sorry, that was the book I’m recently reading. (Author coughs ashamed, because of the humble mistake made.)

Well, let’s stick to the point.

Today I’ll try to show you a few pros and cons regarding the swine flu. The informations available are scattered all over the net and the media, and in addition, they are wrong and are used as propaganda most of the time, as we will see.

Let’s start at a completely different side: the ordinary flu.
To compare, how dangerous the swine flu really is, and what might kill you faster. The use of statistics is difficult, because all the institutions making these are paid by pharmaceutical companies. So it stands in question if they are to be taken seriously.
Though, I will show some of them.
So, here is one example:
“In the U.S., an estimated 25–50 million cases of the flu are currently reported each year — leading to 150,000 hospitalizations and 30,000–40,000 deaths yearly. If these figures were to be estimated incorporating the rest of the world, there would be an average of approximately 1 billion cases of flu, around 3–5 million cases of severe illness, and 300,000–500,000 deaths annually.”

So, if that was true, one might ask, why the vaccine for the ordinary flu isn’t as urgent, as the swine flu vaccine.

Let’s compare that to the numbers of the swine flu:

Worldwide statistics of the H1N1 Influenza:

total 64435

deaths 8223

Remember, that is the number of infections/deaths WORLDWIDE.

So, if what they state is true, the ordinary influenza seems to be more dangerous than the swine flu. Always keep in mind, where the numbers are taken from. So, better question each and every one of them.

Another problem is, that the numbers are presumed, meaning, that only a fraction of people being sick have the H1N1 virus and in addition only a very small number of infected are tested for the H1N1 virus. So, the numbers don’t reflect anything real. They are an example for the use of a mathematical formula which is used to try and calculate how it could be. It is in no way whatsoever an irrevocable number or way to reflect reality.

Ok, let’s go on.

A history of swine flu:

A few days after the first infections of swine flu came to light, Sir Roy Anderson, a consultant of the british government, announced the swine flu to be a pandemic and stated that there are two effective medications. What he didn’t tell was, that he’s also getting money – 136.000 per year – from GlaxoSmithKline the producer of Pandemrix, the vaccine, and Zanamivir (a medicine).

45 days after the first infections emerged the WHO declared the swine flu as a pandemic. They deleted two points on the pandemic scale and voila here we go.

Then action was taken and an ‘International Swine Flu Conference’ took place. The brochure, you can download under the given link, gives a very vivid picture of what was discussed and planned. Let me give you a few examples:

Know How To Respond
Recognize problems earlier. Make the right decision faster.
How to Plan
Make everyone a stakeholder. Spell out roles and responsibilities
Plan To Continue
Maintain cash flow and work flow. Keep the learning process alive.
Protect Your Community
Know your resources. Test them against your toughest scenarios.”

So far so ludicrous. Even when it sounds more like a computer game intro, let me continue and see for yourself, what kind of audience this brochure is made for:

“Top leaders and key decision-makers of major companies representing a broad range of industries will meet with distinguished scientists, public health officials, law enforcers, first responders, and other experts to discuss pandemic prevention, preparedness, response and recovery at the 1st
International Swine Flu Summit.
At the summit, attendees will be able to draw on first-hand best practices to create the solid business continuity plans that their companies and organizations need in order to prepare for, respond to, and survive a pandemic.”

So, as you can easily see, it is more a guide to “monetary stabilization in case of a pandemic” than how to protect the public. Though, they thought about that as well. Let me show you:

“Concurrent Breakout Session #2

Psychological Issues

Public’s distress of exposure and safety
Breakdown of public services, utilities
Medical supplies shortage
Unwillingness to follow government orders

Especially the last point is very interesting.

All in all, they presumed 15 different break out sessions/scenarios. I could go on for hours. So take a look at the brochure yourself!

Now, let’s continue.

So, in a hurry they started producing the vaccine, of which no one really knows if it is working. Similar to the medications doctors prescribe. More and more people warn, that the virus is on its way to become resistant against Tamiflu, Zanamivir or for that matter, everything that is available on the market. But doctors, with a swing in their step, prescribe it without testing the patient for H1N1.

What they didn’t reckon was, that the big pandemic wouldn’t arrive. That meant, that there would be no big cash flow, no rising fear, no panic – well worst again – no money.

And what did they do?

Suddenly the numbers of infections increased rapidly and slogans arose like:

“When you’re not vaccinated, you’re a danger to other people. Do you want to be responsible, if somebody dies of swine flu because you infected him?”

“Numbers of infected increase rapidly! WHO advise people to get the vaccine!”

So, we’re back in the cosy land of fear and pressure.

What many people do not know is, that the WHO and the national health and science institutes are sponsored and advised by GSK, Baxter, Roche, Aventis the companies producing and earning money with vaccines and medications.

For example:

Sir Roy Anderson – UK government advisor

Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. mult. Jörg Hacker – Germany government advisor and president of the Robert Koch institute

And besides, when the slogan of something is:

Save money and make money with US health advisors

I think there is no need to add anything.

The thing is, that many people think, you could die of the virus itself. But that is a misbelief. If you die, other illnesses are responsible for that, like a pneumonia, which when not treated properly or if you are too weak and your immune system collapses, can cause death. This is not only possible with H1N1 but with every bloody illness you can get.

I left out all the other causes that can be responsible for death because there are too many. Death is a risk of life itself, better live with it, then.

Now, let’s get to the vaccines.

Not only are they not tested, they don’t even know if they work. (I mentioned that earlier!) Now, they had this great idea of substitute adjuvant of which no one knows what they could cause. When there was the first swine flu epidemic in 1976 they caused more trouble with the vaccine than the flu itself could have ever done.

They really made nice commercials, though.

Of course there are many rumours about what else hides behind the flu and the vaccine and what will come up next.

I also want to remind everybody of the bird flu, which was, in fact, more dangerous, but then nobody called for whether a pandemic nor a vaccine. Also, I’m asking myself, why on one hand it is called swine flu, when no pig ever died of it, not even showed signs of infection? While on the other hand the birds surely died from bird flu.

Mysteries of the world.

P.S. Well, the pros got a bit short, so here’s one: Your child won’t be an outcast anymore in school, when it is vaccinated.

And another thing is…

What really got me thinking was, when a friend of mine went to the doctor’s because she was ill (which was a few moths ago!) and a woman went to the receptionist and asked if they could remove my friend from the waiting room, because the woman was afraid it could be the swine flu and didn’t want to be infected. And, believe it or not, they did it. My friend had to wait somewhere else – at the reception. Witty, if you ask me…

But today, in the times of the big pandemic, this is normal procedure. When you go to the doctor, before you get into the waiting room a nurse will come around, ask why you are there. If you have symptoms similar to those caused by flu, you get a mask and not until then you will be led into the doctor’s surgery.

Paranoia really blossoms in the face of fear.

UPDATE 11/18/2009: Well, my friends, I don’t know if you’ve already heard it, but there have been some deaths being connected with the swine flu vaccine. Strange, that I haven’t heard of it in the news. It is true, that a few newspapers printed one or two sentences about it. Of course there are many reasons to die of a vaccine and not only the swine flu vaccine has terrible and dangerous side effects. But it seems to happen more often than usual because of the adjuvant. Many people had allergic reactions and people with pre-existing conditions are at risk. But though they tell us that especially these high-risk groups should go and have the vaccine. Logic? Someone? Anywhere?

Besides, buy some Tamiflu, because the date of expiry is coming nearer…

It is true. My informant told me (he works in a hospital), that the packages they bought when bird flu “broke out” will expire at the end of the year. So, maybe now you get why it is urgent to sell as much Tamiflu etc. as possible in the last and next few months: Because if not sold now, it won’t ever be sold. This would mean a big loss of money for the pharmaceutical industry.

Ka-ching!

Aaaaand another update 11/20/2009:

So, good news. As was published by an independent website, at least the Germans knew 2007 that swine flu was coming. This is shown by an official report about the vaccine trade between GSK and the German government, which was now published. Finally! Because actually absolute silence was arranged between GSK and the german government about this event.

You can read it here, but it’s in german. Sorry guys! But of course, those things would never be published in different languages, so that everybody could understand and read them. The reasons for that are known, I hope.

Yuck, that is supposed to be food? – or – What happens when companies are let loose!

My dear friends, every day I discover new and already known things which really make me feel like the world should be institutionalized.

So today I publicly proclaim the ‘Civil Disobedience Week’!!

So, why is that?

Well, this week, which will last from today till next Tuesday, I will try to uncover some things, which will make you sick to your stomach, will leave a bad after taste in your throat and which will leave you faithless.

Just so you know, what to expect.

Ok, let’s start with a few things, I already wrote a few days ago. Again, we will take a look at our food. But not what is INSIDE but how it is produced.

So, do you like chicken? Well, watch this and wait a few seconds, I’m quite curious what you think about it. For everyone, who has no time or whatever, I’ll describe what is seen in the video.

It’s name is: Undercover Investigation at Hy-Line Hatchery. You will see, how small, just yet hatched fledglings are sorted by their sex. They only want females, because males don’t produce eggs. So these small males are sorted out, are put onto the production line and are thrown into a grinder while still alive. Take a look if you don’t believe it! And imagine what it would be like, falling into a grinder, being slaughtered into pieces while aware of it. So these small fledglings are alive only a few minutes  if at all.

Is that really the price for cheap eggs, cheap meat? Do YOU want to pay for that? Is that really the only way? Do you really think, that a system, which is so inhuman has any morals regarding anything? Do you want to eat THIS?

In my opinion: a big fat NO!

But that’s only one little piece in a big world wide puzzle.

Some movies like ‘We feed the world‘ made by Erwin Wagenhofer, who also made the movie ‘let’s make money‘ shows how the whole industry is dominated by only a few organisations, how our’ food’ is produced and that no-one will ever be able to do something about it because the system is corrupt, controlled by a few and is based on money making, with no intention whatsoever, to take care of health, ecology, people or anything you would think producing food should be about. It also shows impressively, why ‘the west’ is responsible for the hunger in the world and all of the ecological problems.

Another very impressive person is Dr. Vandana Shiva. In the movie “Leben außer Kontrolle” which means ‘Life out of control’ she talks about the dangers of genetically engineered seeds and much more. She is fighting against big companies like Monsanto, Bayer, Aventis and many more which are connected in one way or another.

They’ve sold genetically engineered seeds to the indian farmers, and promised them that the seeds would produce more harvest, so they would earn more money and wouldn’t need herbicides or pesticides because of the immunity of the plants regarding threats like insects or pest plants. The farmers bought the seeds for unjustifiable high prices – four times what they normally paid –  and are now more than knee deep in debt so that thousands of farmers committed suicide, because the harvest didn’t live up to the promises of Monsanto. Of course Monsanto and all the others ensured their patent for all the seeds. Furthermore only because the seeds failed it isn’t the case that the seeds failed, at least from Monsanto’s point of view. Because that is what they want! Take a look here, a very nice article about that topic.

You think that all this is impossible? No it’s not. The right to own something is not based on where it originated, but who encoded the genes first. So then they have the patent and everybody has to obey their rules in working, using and growing seeds crops and everything you can think of.

And think of it: The effects of ‘gen-food’ are not yet and not nearly researched. Is the reason that 95% of scientist who are exploring this area of expertise work for big companies? Would it be in the interest of these companies to explain and clarify what they are doing behind closed doors? No, of course not!

The ONE and ONLY argument you get is that genetically engineering is: We can fight against the world hunger by producing more food.

That’s a good one, isn’t it? We have more food, more meat, more of everything than we need, but still thousands of people starve every day. This is not even sarcasm,  anymore this is cynicism!

I want to remind you of the ‘Codex Alimetarius’ I wrote about a few days ago.

You have to realize that he, who owns and/or controls  food, controls not only the population but everything. What do you do, when the only thing you can buy is food without any nutrition, any vitamins, minerals? What if you can eat as much as you want, but don’t get anything your body needs to be healthy? Code word: Schmeiser!

Many people argue, that this is ‘conspiracy theory’ but let me assure you, it is not! You just have to open your eyes to see the dots, the real picture can only be seen by them who connect the dots- that’s why I’m here. I want to help you connecting the dots, you haven’t seen yet. I want to get the ball rolling, because it is our only option to react, to protest and to change something.

Take this as an introduction to my week of civil disobedience!

Disobey and change something, whether you are an artguerilla or just boycott the food industry by buying ecologically produced food, or grow your own (which at some point will be either the only option or forbidden or both).

Tell your friends and family about. Create awareness and be aware.

What will be your answer when your child will ask one day: What did you do about it?

Do you really want to say: Well, I didn’t believe it and let it happen. Who would have thought that this could come true?

Not a good answer, is it? Don’t believe that rich people are the ‘moral elite’, that there are any rules, that are able to align them.

Break free of the bounds they (mainstream media, corporations, organizations, politics and companies) attached you to.

Because most of the things we’re told are lies that can only be found between the lines!

What’s for dinner?

So today, let us take a look at our food.

Every day we have to eat. We normally start with breakfast, then have lunch, eat dinner and some things in-between like fruits, sweets or something else we crave for. So, what about our food?

Have you heard of the “Codex Alimentarius”?

First of all: What is that codex?

It means “food code” and was officially invented 1962/63 by the WHO and the FAQ to introduce standards in food production, trade, hygiene, ingredients, nutrition and everything you can imagine. The main purpose, so the codex itself says is protecting “health of the consumers and ensuring fair trade practices in the food trade, and promoting coordination of all food standards work undertaken by international governmental and non-governmental organizations.”

Doesn’t sound that bad, does it? But the codex and it’s goals are quite controversial.

On the one hand there are the supporters whose arguments for the codex are: that it may help to build international and binding standards that will be able to help and assure people of the positive effects of the code for food production and as an effect of that for the consumers. Everything which could possibly be declared as food is regulated and defined, even ‘Mineral Water’.

On the other hand there are opponents that say quite the opposite. Small countries or developing countries could be disadvantaged also regional products, that may not withstand the standards because of their mode of production or so, and therefore could be banned from the market. Furthermore the codex could overthrow existing standards or strict regulations made by countries or regions.

Some of the biggest supporters of the code are giant food companies, that take part in many more activities than only producing food. The most terrifying example is Monsanto.

This ‘food producer’ is not only food producer, but a “multinational agricultural biotechnology corporation” that not only invented “Agent Orange” which came to public attention in the Vietnam War but also holds 90% of the various genetically engineered seeds worldwide. Founded in 1901 it bought and sold many different companies over the last century. Monsanto introduced saccharine (artificial sweetener) to the market. The list could be continued forever.

Monsanto also brought many small farmers to trial because they saved seeds for the following year, which is so to speak ‘verboten’. In question is also their production of the so called ‘Terminator seed‘ which produces sterile seeds so farmers have to buy new seeds every year and are not allowed to grow their own. Yes, right! Plants that are not able to reproduce themselves.

Though the question arises, why it should be necessary to produce sterile seeds, why it should be a welcome development if you patent genes and their combinations (pigs for example) so no-one is allowed to breed pigs that have the genes except you pay for the patent, Monsanto won this and many other trials.

So let’s consider that:

There is a codex, which  standardized food, food production, ingredients and  so on. A code which is supported mostly by big corporations and organisations for the purpose of public health and consumer safety.

This is what we are made to believe.

Then there are voices who are maybe not as official as all the others and are maybe even in question, but perhaps there is at least a little bit of truth to find.

For example Dr. Rima Laibow from the Natural Solution Foundation, who claims that the code will be used to control food supply and therefore what will be offered and declared as ‘food’ as a whole, that it will control what is allowed and what is prohibited as food/drinks and as food/drinks ingredients. If you’re interested in what she’s got to say take a look here.

It doesn’t really matter who of them is right, because one thing seems very clear: We don’t have a clue what is inside of our food or drinks, even if it is water.

Also nobody could control the gigantic corporation-government machine which imposes all these things on us.

And if you don’t believe in long term planning of the governments or corporations or organisations I have one last thing to tell you:

As it was stated at the beginning of this post, the “Codex Alimentarius” was invented in 1962/63 and was then planned to go global in december 2009.

I’m just wondering…
