Swine flu (H1N1)
|Swine flu (H1N1)|
The Swine flu (H1N1) virus caused a panic that lasted for about 20 months, from January 2009 to August 2010, and was notable for the premature official declaration of a pandemic by the Big Pharma-dominated World Health Organization. The 2009 swine flu panic pressured national governments to make large purchases of drugs and vaccines, later found to have been unnecessary, since the Swine flu turned out to be milder than most other yearly influenza waves.
First described in April 2009, the virus appeared to be a new strain of H1N1, which resulted from a previous triple reassortment of bird, swine, and human flu viruses further combined with a Eurasian pig flu virus, leading to the term "Swine flu".
Some studies estimated that the actual number of cases including asymptomatic and mild cases could be 700 million to 1.4 billion people—or 11 to 21 percent of the global population of 6.8 billion at the time. The lower value of 700 million is more than the 500 million people estimated to have been infected by the Spanish flu pandemic.
The number of lab-confirmed deaths reported to the WHO was 18,449, though this 2009 H1N1 flu pandemic is estimated to have actually caused about 284,000 (range from 150,000 to 575,000) deaths. A follow-up study done in September 2010 showed that the risk of serious illness resulting from the 2009 H1N1 flu was no higher than that of the yearly seasonal flu. For comparison, the WHO estimates that 250,000 to 500,000 people die of seasonal flu annually.

FEMA's National Level Exercise 2009 (NLE09) was scheduled for 27-31 July 2009.
NLE09 was a White House-directed, Congressionally-mandated exercise which involved federal, regional and local public and private sector elements, and included participation by Australia, Canada, Mexico and the UK.
In "Sly Foxes, Wolves, and Men: Is Marxism Growing in America?", published in April 2010, Dianne Marshall wrote:
If this readiness exercise took place, it went unnoticed to the public. The question is, was it originally going to concern the Swine flu pandemic? If so, was it altered due to the bold actions taken from an Irish Austrian across the Atlantic, named Jane Bürgermeister? Was the Swine flu originally going to be the international crisis that according to Joe Biden was going to "test the metal of this guy"?
We may never know the answer. Was it a coincidence that when Bürgermeister brought forth her charges to the FBI in June of 2009 that the true number of reported cases and deaths from the Swine flu were actually minimal, and the exaggerated climbing numbers were never mentioned again on mainstream media? Swine flu was all hushed up?
The summer passed, and all was well, and then, slowly the vaccines were reintroduced, this time more calmly. The media carefully explained the importance of the vaccines in the fall, and softly warned of a pandemic that was scheduled for the upcoming flu season that could kill millions of people without it.
At the time of writing this book, I do not know what fall and winter will bring but I have one serious question. Was a tragedy averted by the actions of Bürgermeister whose criminal charges are still in the legal court systems? We may never know if the two were connected. But even though all are innocent until proven guilty, the charges have brought the Swine flu scandal into the light, slowing down what appeared to many to be the ominous plans of an alleged non-transparent syndicate and their plans for a "North American Union".
The TV-company ARTE commissioned a documentary film, The Swine Flu Profiteers, documenting how the Big Pharma-dominated WHO pushed trough expensive unnecessary measures, including purchases of the useless Tamiflu and large stocks of vaccine.
At the beginning of the millennium, the pharma industry faced slim pickings. There were no new, innovative products, and one asked oneself how to keep up profits. So the specialists in the pharma industry pushed the development of the vaccine sector, where they invented epidemic warnings and pandemics, to boost the sale of vaccines.
The first thing that was attempted, was the much quoted Bird flu. It is worth noting that all the experts crying out against Swine flu, were the same as the ones that cried out against Bird flu. With the pandemic declaration, a principle of pharma marketing was adopted. The pharma industry can sell their products better when people are frightened, so one has to create a fear psychosis, so that people get weak and demand the vaccine and flu medicine like Tamiflu.
The pharmaceutical company Roche had made giant profits from Tamiflu once before. The Bird flu gave the company record revenues, There was no evidence that this drug reduced the risk of severe complications or made hospital stays unnecessary, but governments bought the medicine for billions of dollars for the anticipated Swine flu.
|Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies||“The lack of complete transparency has echoes of the way the World Health Organisation operated during the 2009 swine flu crisis, when it refused to disclose the names of the scientists it relied on for advice.”||'Investigations Team'||24 April 2020|
|WHO||“It was a multibillion bonanza for Big Pharma supported by the WHO’s Director-General Margaret Chan.
The WHO did not act to reassure and inform World public opinion. Quite the opposite: A “Fear Pandemic” rather than a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC) was launched. Outright panic and uncertainty were sustained through a carefully designed media disinformation campaign.
An atmosphere of fear and intimidation prevailed. The data was manipulated.
Several critics said that the H1N1 Pandemic was “Fake”:The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE), a human rights watchdog, is publicly investigating the WHO’s motives in declaring a pandemic. Indeed, the chairman of its influential health committee, epidemiologist Wolfgang Wodarg, has declared that the “false pandemic” is “one of the greatest medicine scandals of the century.” (Forbes, February 10, 2010)”
