The news story quoted below coyly says that the government’s position on the potential hazards of the swine flu vaccination “has changed.” How about just saying the government admits it has been misleading people? Bear in mind that the swine flu vaccine is being mixed in with this year’s seasonal flu vaccine. Health ministers had planned to incinerate millions of unused doses, but now they’re disposing of them by putting them in people’s veins.

Health chiefs have for the first time acknowledged that the swine flu jab may be linked to an increased risk of developing a deadly nerve condition.

Experts are examining a pos­sible association between the controversial jab and Guillain-Barre Syndrome, according to a report from official watchdog the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA).

Previously, the Government has always stressed there is no evidence to link the paralysing condition to the H1N1 vaccine.

After The Mail on Sunday revealed in August 2009 that doctors were being asked to monitor cases of GBS during the swine flu pandemic, a letter from the Health Protection Agency’s chief executive Justin McCracken stated: ‘There is no evidence to suggest an increased risk of GBS from the vaccines being developed to fight the current pandemic.’

Now the MHRA’s newly published report suggests the Government’s position has changed.

“Government Against the People” is among those who have quoted 36,000 as the number of Americans who die each year from the seasonal flu. It turns out that figure is significantly higher than the true number.

The article quoted below states the matter clearly: “The real problem here is that our government has become a full partner with drug companies in the vaccine business.”

We have been telling you recently about phony data from the government. Here is another egregious example—and no one in the major media seems to know or care.

For years, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has been citing an annual estimate of 36,000 deaths from flu. That figure has been used to justify mandatory flu vaccination for children and has been parroted the world over by news organizations that never question its validity. Last week the CDC released new figures: rather than 36,000, the three-decade average is actually 23,607 deaths, a full one-third fewer people than previously cited.

But even these new figures are actually fabricated and false. The CDC has always used a mathematical estimate based on an assumption that if a death certificate had “respiratory or circulatory disease” listed as a cause of death, then it should be counted as a “flu-related” death! The Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons has been highly critical of the CDC’s methodology.

The audacity of the swine flu vaccine manufacturers almost defies belief.

A year ago, with the help of government bureaucrats paid to advance their commercial interests, vaccine manufacturers whipped much of the developed world into a frenzy over a threat that was supposedly going to claim millions of lives around the world. Manufacturing of the vaccine was fast-tracked, an exemption was made to formerly required testing and safety standards, retailers launched a marketing blitz, and people clamored to be injected with a drug known to contain carcinogens and sometimes cause neurological problems.

By early 2010, the panic had subsided and the manufacturers couldn’t give their unused H1N1 vaccine doses away. Investigations were being launched in Europe and elsewhere around the world. Conflicts of interest were being made public. There was talk of incinerating millions of unused doses.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control reported that fewer than 12,000 people in the U.S. had died of the swine flu, compared with 36,000 who die each year, on average, of the seasonal flu. The Great Swine Flu Pandemic of 2009, it turned out, was the Great Pandemic That Wasn’t.

So was that the end of it? Ah, to think so would be to underestimate the tenacity of the pharmacological-industrial complex. They’re coming back, this time telling us we must take a concoction that contains both the regular seasonal vaccine and the H1N1 vaccine. Apparently they don’t need to incinerate those unused doses after all—especially not as long as the public, with its short memory, is willing to queue up and roll up their sleeves.

Well, here at Government Against the People, we don’t believe in watching the truth flushed down the memory hole. That’s why we’re offering this brief summary of events that document what a huge scam the swine flu pandemic truly was.

The spell is broken

By December of last year, people in high places were beginning to ask questions. Dr. Wolfgang Wodarg, chairman of the health committee of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council  of Europe, introduced a motion “on the influence of the pharmaceutical companies on the global swine flu campaign, focusing especially on the extent of the pharmaceutical industry’s influence on WHO,”  reported Global Research.

The common folk were also asking questions—and raising alarms. A Web site called Canadians for Health Freedom invited Canadians to report their own H1N1 vaccine horror stories. By the end of the summer of 2010, there were about 450 entries.

January was an eventful month in the unraveling of the swine flu hoax. Bloomberg reported that “Governments from the U.S. to Germany are curbing purchases of vaccine to fight the new H1N1 virus after cases declined and the first flu pandemic in 41 years appeared milder than initially feared.” India’s health secretary, K. Sujatha Rao, was among government officials demanding answers from the World Health Organization after it had become obvious that the swine flu pandemic was much milder than the fearmongers had warned.

A columnist for the Huffington Post, meanwhile, posted an article mocking the pandemic that “didn’t fly.” He reported, among other things, that “the Council of Europe launched an investigation into whether the World Health Organization ‘faked’ the swine flu pandemic to boost profits for vaccine manufacturers.” The columnist apparently thought the silly swine flu “pandemic” had been quietly put to rest. Obviously he underestimated the brazenness of the pharmaceutical companies and government bureaucracies—not to mention the gullibility of the public.

Britain’s Daily Mail, also in January, reported that critics at the first of several Council of Europe hearings into the handling of the swine flu pandemic were saying that “drug companies manipulated the World Health Organisation into downgrading its definition of a pandemic so they could cash in on a swine flu outbreak.”

“The great swine flu hoax of 2009 is now falling apart at the seams as one country after another unloads hundreds of millions of doses of unused swine flu vaccines,” reported Natural News. “No informed person wants the injection anymore, and the entire fear-based campaign to promote the vaccines has now been exposed as outright quackery and propaganda.” Natural News, like most news organizations reporting on the swine flu scam, couldn’t conceive at the time that the pharmaceutical companies and health bureaucrats would be back again, promoting the useless and harmful vaccine all over again.

Raking it in

Vaccine manufacturers, meanwhile, were quite open about the profits they were making. According to the Douglass Report, pharmaceutical companies were “boasting to their investors about how much money they’re going to rake in from vaccines in the next few years.” One of them, Sanofi-Aventis, the parent company of the world’s largest vaccine maker, Sanofi Pasteur, was “telling its investors that it plans to double its vaccine business by 2013,” the Douglass Report noted. “In 2010 alone, they’re hoping to sell nearly $5.76 billion in needless needles.”

Speaking of Sanofi-Aventis, the New York Times reported last February that the vaccine maker’s profits for the fourth quarter of 2009 had exceeded analysts’ expectations, thanks mainly to the swine flu vaccine. “Sales of the swine flu vaccine, which in October led Sanofi to raise profit projections, accounted for nearly $500 million of the quarter’s revenue and $638 million for the year,” reported the newspaper of record.

By February, realizing that the jig was up, retailers had become desperate to unload unwanted flu vaccine doses. Walgreens went so far as to slap vaccine stickers on random merchandise in some of their stores, as shown here. (Curiously, the sticker says “H1N1 available here,” as if it’s the virus itself people might want to buy!)

By now, criticism and outright mockery of the swine flu scam had gone mainstream. According to an opinion piece in AOL News in April, the World Health Agency’s “swine flu czar,” Keiji Fukuda, “fessed up” to “agency wrongdoing.” The same article reported that Wolfgang Wodarg, an epidemiologist with the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, accused the WHO of creating a “false pandemic” that was “one of the greatest medicine scandals of the century.”

More recently, Yahoo New Zealand reported in August that one-third of the experts who had advised the World Health Organization on the Swine Flu scam—sorry, pandemic—were on the payroll of big pharmaceutical companies.

What lessons can we draw from these events? Mainly, that the unholy alliance of pharmaceutical companies and government health ministries will stop at nothing to advance their promotion of unneeded yet harmful drugs.

If the people fall for the hoax this season, we will have learned once again that the public has a tragically short memory and will fall for anything—a development that will surely embolden those who seek to profit from the subjugation and control of the masses to behave even more audaciously in the future.

Well, no duh. Of course they were being bribed. There never was a swine flu pandemic, and even the WHO now admits that. It was always about selling vaccines. Or, more accurately, it was about getting government agencies to coerce people into taking them.

GENEVA — Five of the 15 experts that advised the World Health Organisation about swine flu pandemic alerts had received support from the drugs industry, including for flu vaccine research, the WHO revealed on Wednesday.

The agency released for the first time a list of the 15 members of the Emergency Committee headed by Australian tropical diseases professor John Mackenzie, who was the only member publicly named during the outbreak.

They came from Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin and North America, the list posted on the WHO’s website showed.

Most were scientific researchers and epidemiologists, along with a Senegalese diplomat, public health officials from Thailand and Chile as well as two specialists on international air travel and health. The list can be seen at http://www.who.int/ihr/emerg_comm_members_2009/en/index.html.

Critics had raised concerns about potential conflicts of interest that might have helped the drugs industry influence decisions on huge orders for special vaccines against A(H1N1) flu.

What do you call it when governments terrorize the people in order to profit pharmaceutical companies? Marketing!

(April 19) — Having spread H1N1 swine flu hysteria for nearly a year, the World Health Organization’s “swine flu czar,” Keiji Fukuda, last week finally “fessed up” to agency wrongdoing. But it’s like listening to Enron admitting to a tabulation error. “I think we did not convey the uncertainty” about the risks of the flu strain, he said.

Sorry, but this was no poor communications problem. Indeed, earlier this year Wolfgang Wodarg, an epidemiologist with the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, accused the WHO of creating a “false pandemic” that’s “one of the greatest medicine scandals of the century.”

At the least, by portraying as a raging razorback what proved to be more of a pathetic piglet, the WHO needlessly scared the public, wasted vast billions of dollars, destroyed the value of the term “flu pandemic” and perhaps left the organization’s reputation “tarnished” and “irreparably damaged,” as one authority put it.

A year ago, Fukuda was comparing swine flu’s potential with the Spanish flu, which killed an estimated 20 million to 50 million worldwide in 1918-19, with more than half a million here. (Extrapolating to today’s population, that would be 1.5 million.) Now, with the annual U.S. epidemic ending, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates we’ve had had perhaps 12,000 total deaths — a third of the usual number. (Almost all the infections this year were swine flu.) About 140 million doses of swine flu vaccine appeared headed for the trash heap. France and Japan say their epidemics have been far milder. Last July an Associated Press headline declared, “Britain Braces for 100,000 Swine Flu Cases a Day.” Actual deaths: 457.

Will people fall for the scam a second time? Probably.

Think you’ve seen a hard sell when it comes to swine flu vaccine?

Well, you ain’t seen nothing yet!

The vaccine makers are just getting warmed up — and now they’re coming right out and boasting to their investors about how much money they’re going to rake in from vaccines in the next few years.

Sanofi-Aventis is telling its investors that it plans to double its vaccine business by 2013. In 2010 alone, they’re hoping to sell nearly $5.76 billion in needless needles.

That’s not just significant. That’s a bombshell — because this company owns Sanofi Pasteur, the world’s largest vaccine maker. That should tell you everything you need to know about these drugs. The vaccine business is not a noble effort to end disease… but a relentless push to boost profits.

They’re eager to put this stuff in your veins because they care about you, not because they’ve paid for it and it’s soon to expire.

Riverside County public health officials are encouraging people to get vaccinated for Swine Flu.  They have plenty of doses available.  In fact, they may have too much.

Debra Santibanez, Nurse Manager with the County Family Care Centers in the valley, said Thursday hundreds of doses are set to expire in the next week.
