Mexican government decrees special powers in flu crisis

April 25, 2009

Mexican President Felipe Calderon issued an emergency decree on Saturday giving the government special powers to run tests on sick people and order them isolated to fight the deadly flu crisis.

Mexico City has already shut schools and museums and canceled sporting and cultural events as an outbreak of a new type of swine flu killed up to 68 people in the country and spread north to infect some people in the United States.

Saturday’s decree, published in Mexico’s official journal, gives the government power to isolate sick people, enter homes or workplaces and regulate air, sea and land transportation to try to stop further infection.

The flu has rattled residents of Mexico’s overcrowded capital of some 20 million people.

Calderon tried to calm Mexicans earlier on Saturday, saying the flue was curable. He said health authorities easily had enough antiviral medicine for the 1,000 or so people suspected to be infected with the swine flu and that his government was monitoring the situation “minute by minute.”

Is Swine Flu A Biological Weapon? 270409top

There are some factors that suggest the swine flu killing people in Mexico may be a biological weapon, but obviously no such conclusion can be drawn at this time. The World Health Organization and the U.S. government have been quick to deny such claims.

The swine flu virus is described as a completely new strain, an intercontinental mixture of human, avian and swine viruses. Tellingly, there have been no reported A-H1N1 infections of pigs.

According to a source known to former NSA official Wayne Madsen, “A top scientist for the United Nations, who has examined the outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus in Africa, as well as HIV/AIDS victims, concluded that H1N1 possesses certain transmission “vectors” that suggest that the new flu strain has been genetically-manufactured as a military biological warfare weapon.

Madsen claims that his source, and another in Indonesia, “Are convinced that the current outbreak of a new strain of swine flu in Mexico and some parts of the United States is the result of the introduction of a human-engineered pathogen that could result in a widespread global pandemic, with potentially catastrophic consequences for domestic and international travel and commerce.”

However, it’s important to stress that it is far too early to make this assumption. We have to bear in mind that the number of victims has been comparatively low when one considers the fact that hundreds of thousands in Mexico contract infectious diseases every year related to poverty like tuberculosis and malaria.

Fort Detrick, the U.S. Army Medical Command installation that was the source of the 2001 anthrax attacks, is again attracting suspicion in light of the swine flu panic after it was revealed that criminal investigators are probing whether virus samples recently went missing from its biolabs.

“Chad Jones, spokesman for Fort Meade, said CID is investigating the possibility of missing virus samples from the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases,” reports The Frederick News.

In February, USAMRIID halted their work when virus samples were discovered that were not listed in its inventory. Criminal investigators from the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Division unit at Fort Meade are now probing whether virus samples are missing from the Army’s top biolab, which also studies pathogens including ebola, anthrax and plague.

Obviously, in light of the current swine flu scare, and the new strain’s possible synthetic origin, the fact that virus samples may have gone missing from the same Army research lab from which the 2001 anthrax strain was released is extremely disturbing.

A 2008 FBI and DOJ investigation concluded that Bruce Edwards Irvins, a microbiologist, vaccinologist, and senior biodefense researcher at the United States Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID) in Fort Detrick, Maryland, was responsible for mailing anthrax to members of Congress and the media in September and October 2001.

The fact that Irvins apparently committed suicide shortly before the announcement led many to suspect that he was a patsy in a wider plot. Despite the suspicious circumstances, no autopsy was carried out on Irvins’ body. His attorney was certain that Irvins, who had cooperated with the 6-year investigation, was innocent of the five anthrax deaths.

The Department of Justice initially considered Dr. Steven Jay Hatfill to be a strong suspect in the anthrax attacks, but he later sued the government and won $5.8 million in damages. A New York Times piece on Irvins’ suicide asked the hypothetical question: “What if Dr. Hatfill had committed suicide in 2002, as friends feared he might? Would the investigators have released their evidence and announced that the perpetrator was dead?”

Fears that a mass pandemic was being readied as a biological attack have rumbled on in the conspiracy community ever since 9/11. Investigators point to the highly unusual number of deaths of top microbiologists to suggest that people with knowledge of the program are being eliminated.

Inbreeding caused demise of the Spanish Habsburg dynasty, new study reveals

One of Europe’s most powerful royal dynasties was so obsessed with securing its blue-blooded inheritance through family marriages that it brought about its own extinction through inbreeding, scientists have found.

 By Fiona Govan in Madrid
Last Updated: 1:37PM BST 15 Apr 2009

The Hapsburgs ruled Spain from 1516 to 1700, presiding over the first global empire, but died out after generations of intermarriage, according to the first genetic analysis of the family.

The royal fashion of marrying relatives to preserve the dynastic heritage culminated in a monarch who was so genetically inbred that he was unable to provide an heir and power passed to the French Bourbons.

The dynasty was one of the most important and influential royal families in Europe – branches of the family ruled Austria, Hungary, Belgium, the Netherlands, the German empire and Spain.

Scientists have examined the family tree of the last of the Spanish Habsburgs, King Charles II, who died in 1700 at the age of 39, and discovered that, as a result of repeated marriages between close relatives, he was almost as inbred as the offspring of an incestuous relationship between a brother and sister or father and daughter.

The study found that nine out of 11 marriages over the 200 years were between first cousins or uncles and nieces, producing a small gene pool that made rare recessive genetic illnesses more prevalent.

Only half of the babies born to the dynasty during the period studied lived to see their first birthday, compared with about 80 per cent of children in Spanish villages at the time.

The study, published this week in the journal Public Library of Science One, indicated that Charles II suffered from two separate rare genetic conditions, which were almost certainly the result of his ancestors’ marriage patterns and which effectively assured that the dynasty died out with him.

Nicknamed El Hechizado (“the hexed”) because of his deformities, Charles II was not only inflicted with an extreme version of the Hapsburg chin, as immortalised in portraits by Titian and Velazquez, but his tongue was said to be so big for his mouth that he had difficulty speaking and drooled.

Historical accounts record that he also suffered from an oversized head, intestinal upsets, convulsions and, according to his first wife, premature ejaculation and his second wife, impotence.

“He was unable to speak until the age of four, and could not walk until the age of eight. He was short, weak and quite lean and thin,” said Gonzalo Alvarez, of the University of Santiago de Compostela, who led the study.

“He looked like an old person when he was 30 years old, suffering edemas [swellings] on his feet, legs, abdomen and face. During the last years of his life he could barely stand up and suffered from hallucinations and convulsive episodes,” he said.

The scientists concluded that medical problems of Charles II were not random but could be symptoms of two genetic disorders; an inherited thyroid deficiency, and renal tubular acidosis, a type of kidney failure that can cause metabolic problems.

Weekly Online Radio Usage Jumps To 42 Million

4-17-9

 
17% of Americans ages 12 or over listened to online radio in the past week, or about 42 million people, according to the latest in a series of studies conducted by Arbitron and Edison Research. The size of the weekly online radio audience has more than doubled since 2005, when the weekly online radio audience was estimated to be 20 million.
 
On a weekly basis, online radio reaches 20% of 25-to-54 year-olds; up from 15% in 2008. Monthly online listeners are up to 69 million, or roughly 27% of the U.S. population. However, nearly half of the population, or 125 million, have never listened to online radio.
 
The survey, conducted between January 16 and February 15, also found that AM/FM radio continues to have a big impact on people’s lives. The study asked consumers to rate the impact different digital audio platforms has on their lives. More than one in five radio listeners (21%) say it has a big impact on their lives; ranking second only to owners of the Apple iPhone in particular (23%) and cell phone owners in general (47%) as the audio platform/device that has a big impact on people’s lives.
 
Online radio listeners are more likely to be upscale, well-educated and employed full time; 54% of weekly online radio listeners are employed fulltime (compared to 43% among persons 12 and older); 16% of weekly online radio listeners live in homes with an annual income greater than $100,000 (vs. 10% among persons 12 and older); 37% of weekly online radio listeners have a college degree or higher education level (vs. 29% among persons 12 and older).
 
One-third (34%) of persons age 12 and older report having a profile on Facebook, MySpace, LinkedIn, or any other social networking web site, up from 24% in 2008; This figure is substantially greater among young adults. Nearly two-thirds of teens age 12-to-17 (63%) and 18-to-24 year-olds (64%) report having a profile on these social networking sites.
 
iPod/portable MP3 player ownership continues to grow dramatically. More than four in ten (42%) persons age 12 and older own an iPod or other brand of portable MP3 player; up from 37% in 2008 and three times the number in 2005 (14%). Nearly two-thirds (64%) of 18-to-24 year-olds own a digital audio player.
 
While only 14% of persons age 12 and older say they are spending less time with over-the-air radio specifically due to time spent with iPods and other portable MP3 players, digital audio players have greater impact on radio among 12-to-24 year-olds. 32% of teens age 12-to-17 and persons 18-to-24 say they are spending less time with over-the-air radio specifically due to time spent with iPod/other portable MP3 players; this is nearly twice as many 18-to-24 year-olds who reported spending less time with over-the-air radio as 2008.

A Rainbow Warrior Shows His True Colours

By Philip Jones

4-19-9
 
 
Jonathon Porritt.
 
In a recent article in the London Daily Mail, Jonathon Porritt, the British Government’s ‘Green’ adviser, was reported as having said that couples who have more than two children were being ‘irresponsible’ by creating an intolerable burden on the environment. Mr Porritt’s short statement underlines the `Greens` deep seated phobia of the human race, and shows that Britain’s top environmental `Tsar` turns out to be not so much a friend of the earth as an enemy of humanity.
 
Mr Porritt believes that restricting population growth via contraception and abortion must be at the very heart of government policy in it’s crusade against `man-made` climate change. The reasoning behind this according to Porritt, is that people must now accept some form of State imposed responsibility for their total `carbon and environmental footprint’.
 
Even though scientifically unproven and much discredited, the ruse of `Global Warming` is being used by the Illuminists, the New Age, and their puppet `Greens` to psychologically terrify and bludgeon the world’s population into accepting ever more infringements on their personal rights and liberties, all in the name of saving the planet.
 
The God given blessings of a large family and the contribution that it makes to posterity, prosperity and progress don’t count at all in Porritts warped `New Age` mind. Rather, the importance of families and the number of children they have, is to be now measured solely by what he sees as their burdensome impact on the planet.
 
This sinister and dehumanised mindset should come as no surprise to anyone who has followed Porritts career thus far. It is no coincidence that he is on record as saying that the country which comes nearest to his ideal society is Communist China, which imposes a harsh and cruel policy of restricting families to one child apiece.
 
When a member of a sitting government openly expresses an opinion with the full and complete backing of that government, that it is a burden on society and the environment to have more than two children, then it is time the alarm bells started ringing. We are talking about a `depopulation agenda` here`. Nothing less. The UK reproduction rate at present, according to a 2008 United Nations study stands at 1.80, and the native population needs 2.4 children per woman of childbearing age in order to replace itself, and Comrade Porritt knows it, and so does the Labour Government.
 
Reproduction is humanity’s strongest instinct. To even consider interfering with this most God given and inalienable of our freedoms and desires is nothing less than Totalitarianism. Jonathon Porritt, like most of the demagogues in the upper echelons of the New Age Movement is undoubtedly aware of the agenda behind his words. He will have us believe that he possesses some kind of `inspired` and unique insight into the needs of our world which is denied to us lesser mortals. This is just another example of the monumental arrogance and contempt with which humanity is being treated by these `green` coloured propagators of Lucifer as they seek to eradicate vast swathes of humanity via the legislating of our natural reproductive rights and by yet more menacing means, in order to usher in their `Dark Age Of Aquarius`- it is also akin to the grandiose delusions of totalitarian tyrants from the Babylonian Nimrod, to the likes of Attila The Hun, Stalin, Hitler and Mao.
 
But then the Satanic New Age Movement, often dressed in it’s office clothes of secular liberal humanism (code words for Luciferianism), is thoroughly Totalitarian in outlook, and the `popular front` that is the Green Lobby mirrors this in it’s intolerant authoritarian global view, which it seeks to impose upon the whole world . It sees people as a nuisance in need of constant management and control. And now, it intends to put the final nail in the coffin of western civilisation by making official the restricting of human births.
 
Having implemented a multitude of furtive means of preventing and discouraging people from reproducing themselves sufficiently, including feminism (career first, men are bad, small family, more money), contraception, readily available abortion, together with a `kaleidoscope` of vaccines which are proven to lower the fertility rate, they appear ready to execute the next phase in this war against people.
 
Intentionally or otherwise, in his comments about what he calls the population `ghost at the table`, Porritt has revealed environmentalism’s true colours and they are not green, but bloody red. This was not some `loose cannon`, or some maverick sounding off. Porritt was expressing views which are mainstream within the Green Movement, endorsed entirely by the British Government, and those views are most definitively reproducing themselves at an alarming rate, even if people are not.
 
Recently, an international campaign was launched called, ‘Global Population Speak Out’ to publicise the supposed link between the size and growth of the human population and environmental degradation. The whole bases of it’s message was scientifically erroneous and without any validity whatsoever. Yet it attracted massive media coverage, schools were involved, the usual celebrity `muppets` grabbed their chance at some cheap publicity, and once again, the whole `Green Circus` proved to be entertainingly effective in co opting the masses into believing the lie and accepting the `guilt trip` laid on them by Porritt and his ilk.
 
A `Green` MD, Dr Pippa Hayes, says she will actually refuse to offer fertility treatment to women who want to have more than four children, because she believes that this places an ‘insupportable burden’ on the earth’s resources. Where is her proof? On what science does she base her conclusions?
 
This writer finds it highly disturbing that a medical doctor should not only have such anti-human views, but then seek to impose them upon her patients, refusing to act in their best interests, which she subordinates to an abhorrent and spurious ideology, which if one cares to play the detective can be traced back to such notables as Madame Blavatsky, Alistair Crowley and Alice Bailey, the late founder of the Lucis (Lucifer)Trust and major mover and shaker in the advancement of all things New Age and Satanic including the United Nations Organisation.
 
Surely, we should be able to expect our doctors to support, sustain and propagate the renewal of human life. Isn’t this their duty? Isn’t it why many conscientious doctors refuse absolutely to perform abortions. When a doctor, as in the case of Pippa Hayes, regards herself as some latter day ‘conscientious objector’ for wanting to reduce human life, she turns not just medical ethics but also the foundation of our common humanity on it’s head.
 
It’s not so far from that point, to where we reach the stage of regarding human beings as some kind of disease. In fact, the “We humans are like some cancer on this planet` catchphrase is becoming increasingly popular as dinner conversation here in Denmark where I live, and more so amongst what would be considered the intelligentsia. I hazard a guess it’s not much different elsewhere either.
 
To emphasise my point here, another prominent establishment `Green`, the former diplomat Sir Crispin Tickell – who has said we should be pursuing policies that would reduce the UK population to 20 million, or one-third of its current level – remarked recently: “Someone has said that constantly increasing growth is the doctrine of the cancer cell. You just get out of control.”
From this contemptuous attitude, it is but a short step to seeing people as mere objects to be disposed of. Then when coupled with the unspoken but often implied view that the populations most in need of control, are those from the developing nations, it becomes outright racism, and can result in a not so unconscious blind spot occurring with regard to genocide. When mass slaughter took place in Rwanda in 1994 and the world stood by and did nothing, there was much talk about how this was inevitable because of the high population density that was causing land shortages and poverty.
 
One can see a direct correlation between the modern environmental movement and the anti-human mindset of population control. It is a fundamental tenet of `Green` ideology that human consumption is not just irresponsible and destructive, but a form of evil. Human life itself is viewed as a cancer or pollutant, and not only in relation to that `Holy Cow` of the New Age, `Man Made Climate Change`, but by the nonsensical idea that we are generally consuming and producing too much and thus eating up the planet like locusts.
 
The roots of this thinking go back to the 18th century British Scholar, Thomas Malthus. Malthus came to prominence for drawing attention to the potential dangers of population and stated that population growth would outstrip the earth’s resources and would lead to famine, starvation and death on a monumental scale.
 
Despite the fact that between Malthus’ time and the mid twentieth century, the world population increased massively and resources expanded accordingly to sustain it, Malthusian beliefs persisted in progressive circles and led to eugenics and thence to fascism. Such beliefs persist to this day and can be found alive and well in the `New Age Movement` and it’s respectable face; the Green Movement, along with the UN, EU and most if not all of the national governments of the west.
 
It is undeniable that there are places in the world today where people are starving. But it has little or nothing to do with any lack of natural resources. It is the callous and inhumane tyranny of the Illuminati, the UN and the World Bank and all those `sub agencies`, working for and on behalf of this nefarious cabal of conspirators which keeps the peoples of Africa, much of Latin America and vast expanses of Asia subdued and impoverished.
 
Actually, Comrade Porritt’s proposed two-child limit is almost surplus to requirements as far as the UK is concerned, where few families are having more than one or two children anyway, with the result that the birth rate amongst the indigenous population is now well below replacement level. In fact, last years much publicised rise in Britain’s population can be attributed in the main to the large immigrant contingent now domiciled in the UK.
 
The New Age’s `Green Movement` has been utilsed to great effect by the Illuminists, and has provided a cover of respectability for their `depopulation agenda` and the population control movement as a whole. Few today are aware that organisations such as `Planned Parenthood` are simply a continuation of the Eugenics program which was widespread throughout the US during the years between WWI and WWII, and many of the ideas put into practice by the Nazis had their origins in London and New York, not Berlin.
 
Returning our attention to Comrade Porritt, we discover that he is a patron of the UK’s `Optimum Population Trust`, which bemoans the erroneously held fact that every baby born in Britain will burn a carbon equivalent in quantity to an area of woodland the size of Trafalgar Square. Another of the Trust’s patrons, the environmental `guru` Paul R. Ehrlich, predicted in his 1968 book `The Population Bomb` that during the Seventies and Eighties hundreds of millions of people would starve to death – about 65 million of them in the U.S. – and that by the year 2000 ‘England will not exist’.
 
But then the whole man-made global warming theory has turned out to be just as absurd. As Britain and the rest of North West Europe shivered in one of the coldest winters in years, atmospheric data shows that the earth is getting colder, not hotter, the ice caps are becoming thicker not thinning and sea levels are more or less normal.
 
Yet despite the patent absurdity of these predictions of environmental catastrophe, this thinking has become internalised and now dominates political and public life totally. The reason for this is that those who operate behind the scenes, moving in and out of the shadows, whose vice like grip upon politics, the media, education and all the other channels of influence and information, are manipulating events to further their own ends and controlling our lives in order to reshape society in their `Master’s image.
 
In all corners of everyday life, from state interference in parenting, to telling people what they should or should not eat and drink, from local government `snoopers`, to idiotic health and safety rules, the aim is to control and change the way we behave, by micromanaging our lives. They get us with the insignificant and the petty first, and then when we acquiesce and accept their little diktats, they turn the screw just a little tighter, one turn at a time until they have us. Does anybody recognise the theme ?
 
The `Green Movement` cloaks this sinister tendency under the cover of what they lead us to believe is an urgent necessity to save the planet. But with people like Jonathon Porritt apparently believing that the only thing wrong with our world is the human race itself, the question begs to be asked who it is he is actually trying to save it for?

Obama And The Real Pirates/Hostage Story?

From Various Sources

4-20-9
 
The Real Story Of Obama’s ‘Decision-Making’ With The Pirates And Hostage
 
Having spoken to some SEAL pals here in Virginia Beach yesterday and asking why this thing dragged out for 4 days, I got the following:
 
1. Barack Hussein Obama (BHO) wouldn’t authorize the DEVGRU/NSWC SEAL teams to the scene for 36 hours going against OSC (on scene commander) recommendation.
 
2. Once they arrived, BHO imposed restrictions on their ROE that they couldn’t do anything unless the hostage’s life was in “imminent” danger
 
3. The first time the hostage jumped into the sea, the SEALS had the raggies all sighted in, but could not fire due to ROE restriction
 
4. When the navy RIB came under fire as it approached with supplies, no fire was returned due to ROE restrictions. As the raggies were shooting at the RIB, they were exposed and the SEALS had them all dialed in.
 
5. BHO specifically denied two rescue plans developed by the Bainbridge CPN and SEAL teams.
 
6. Bainbridge CPN and SEAL team CDR finally decide they have the OpArea and OSC authority to solely determine risk to hostage. 4 hours later, 3 dead raggies.
 
7. BHO immediately claims credit for his “daring and decisive” behaviour. As usual with him, it’s BS.
 
Read the following accurate account.
 
Philips’ first leap into the warm, dark water of the Indian Ocean hadn’t worked out as well. With the Bainbridge in range and a rescue by his country’s Navy possible, Philips threw himself off of his lifeboat prison, enabling Navy shooters onboard the destroyer a clear shot at his captors and none was taken.
 
The guidance from National Command Authority, the president of the United States , Barack Obama had been clear: a peaceful solution was the only acceptable outcome to this standoff unless the hostage’s life was in clear, extreme danger.
 
The next day, a small Navy boat approaching the floating raft was fired on by the Somali pirates and again no fire was returned and no pirates killed. This was again due to the cautious stance assumed by Navy personnel, thanks to the combination of a lack of clear guidance from Washington and a mandate from the commander in chief’s staff not to act until Obama, a man with no background of dealing with such issues and no track record of decisiveness, decided that any outcome other than a peaceful solution would be acceptable.
 
After taking fire from the Somali kidnappers again Saturday night, the onscenecommander decided he’d had enough.
 
Keeping his authority to act in the case of a clear and present danger to the hostage’s life, and having heard nothing from Washington since yet another request to mount a rescue operation had been denied the day before, the Navy officer, unnamed in all media reports to date, decided the AK47 one captor had leveled at Philips’ back was a threat to the hostage’s life and ordered the NSWC team to take their shots.
 
Three rounds downrange later, all three brigands became enemy KIA and Philips was safe.
 
There is upside, downside, and spinside to the series of events over the last week that culminated in yesterday’s dramatic rescue of an American hostage.
 
Almost immediately following word of the rescue, the Obama administration and its supporters claimed victory against pirates in the Indian Ocean and [1] declared that the dramatic end to the standoff put paid to questions of the inexperienced president’s toughness and decisiveness.
 
Despite the Obama administration’s (and its sycophants’) attempt to spin yesterday’s success as a result of bold, decisive leadership by the inexperienced president, the reality is nothing of the sort. What should have been a standoff lasting only hours, as long as it took the USS Bainbridge and its team of NSWC operators to steam to the location, became an embarrassing four day and counting standoff between a ragtag handful of criminals with rifles and a U.S. Navy warship.
