“In the event that I am reincarnated,
I would like to return as a deadly virus,
in order to contribute something to solve overpopulation.”
—Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, in 1988

Yes, the good Prince Philip (see above) did say he wants to come back as a deadly virus.
It’s one of many such on-the-record statements alluding to the “elite” objective of global depopulation—the oft-alleged covert plan to reduce the world’s population by two to four billion people through war, famine, disease, plunder, and any other means necessary. Of course, it’s a grotesque charge lacking compelling proof, but it does serve to provide the emotional backdrop for the great swine-flu debacle of 2009 and the vivid popular fears and deep confusion it aroused all over the world.

And, what about those who allege that this “deep black” depopulation project has “white world” correlates, including Pharma-dominated agencies like the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), who translate these secret policies into action on the world stage?
Impossible to prove or believe in such a monstrosity, you say?

But then, these same conspiracists and many others offer up some rather difficult questions to answer: Why would these health authorities, throughout the summer and autumn of 2009, obsessively track and issue dire warnings about an illness—2009 H1N1 swine flu—that is not much more severe than an ordinary cold, and certainly far less lethal than the annual seasonal flu? And why pursue such folly while virtually neglecting deadly global epidemics like HIV, cancer, and heart disease? And why maintain H1N1’s status as a dire global health emergency when it only displayed a death toll of 24,000 worldwide in six months, while 24,000 people die daily from hunger or hunger-related causes? Why keep up the façade that H1N1 was a pandemic threat with its record of about 4000 deaths per month, when at least 30,000 die each winter month in an ordinary flu season? Why did health-policy officials omit the fact that—well known to specialists—that the science supporting flu-vaccine safety and efficacy is questionable or at least controversial? For what reason are natural methods of prevention and treatment of flu infections almost never presented to the public—and, as we will see, even overtly suppressed? And why, in face of these incriminating realities—and in the midst of a great global recession—would the WHO mount the largest and most costly vaccine program since the era of the polio vaccinations in the 1950s? And finally, why did the H1N1 pandemic establishment continue to press their failing campaign throughout the 2009-20010 winter, only to evoke a challenge by the European Parliament which finally launched an “urgent” inquiry into the debacle in January?

Welcome to the mysteries of the deep politics of the swine-flu controversy, the great health policy disaster of 2009, and the source of diverse explanations and projections that border on science fiction—even from the “mainstream.”

In the foreground many ordinary people, and almost the entirety of the mainstream media, robotically accepted the dictates of the world’s public health establishment. But in the background millions worldwide became increasingly suspicious about the real motives of the campaign. Given the gaping vacuum of investigative reporting, deep public confusion and elaborate forms of paranoia thrived. For example, some conspiracists charged that the vaccine contained a latent lab-created killer virus; others, that it represented an opportunity to inject poisoned vaccines. Anti-corporatists and the anti-vaccine movement maintained—with much more evidence—that it was yet another Big Pharma scam, this time global in scope.

But Could the Prince Really Do the Dirty Deed?

But aside from Philip’s fantasy of reincarnation, is a depopulation program using lethal germs even feasible?

The growing worldwide infrastructure for bioweapons engineering makes this notion plausible, at least as an accident; and we do know that huge population crashes naturally caused by microbes have happened many times in the past: In the fourteen century, bubonic plague wiped out a third of Europe’s crowded cities. Smallpox and measles carried by Europeans to the new world decimated the Native Americans. HIV is now wreaking havoc in Africa and Asia (although strong evidence points to a lab source for HIV). As for the near future, many virologists believe that a “superbug” will soon arise to cause another population crash—this time worldwide; some envision how our wanton abuse of the earth and its atmosphere could catalyze “Gaia’s revenge” in the form of a naturally arising super-virus.

So again, could Prince Phillip’s fantasy happen by human design?

We can’t rule this out in a world in which the threat of bioterrorism by disaffected groups is an ever-present reality. And we can’t entirely eliminate conspiracist scenarios about “shadow elites” with dark agendas. There are indeed many cases of VIDs—i.e., vaccine-induced diseases; one need only invent a pretext for vaccinating the population, and we will soon see that documented cases of such crimes exist.

According to one such allegation that gained currency during last year’s H1N1 crisis (see or, for example), an intentional “lab mistake” released an unstoppable lethal germ into the global population. This lab-created flu was surreptitiously planted in a vulnerable location, Mexico, so that it could easily spread. To slowly draw the public in, this lab virus was designed to express high transmissibility but a low death rate in its first wave (as was the case with 2009 H1N1) only to mutate into a lethal second or third wave—which has not yet happened, of course. (However, the naturally occurring 1918 Spanish flu was mild in its first appearance in 1917, but devastating in its second wave, causing over 50 million deaths.)

In a slightly more plausible set-up, the bug need not be programmed to morph into something worse; it need only be transmissible enough to scare the world’s health authorities into ordering widespread vaccinations, as was the case with H1N1, which would in turn poison the world’s population while making money for the vaccine industry.

But our own research—backed by two leading virologists, Vincent Racaniello, PhD, a professor at Columbia University, and Henry Niman, PhD, president and founder of Recombinomics, Inc.—shows that though some of these outlying stories may be plausible on the surface, their supporting evidence and attempts at scientific explanation are manifestly false. According to these virologists, scientists don’t yet know how to program a mildly virulent virus so that it mutates on cue to become high lethal. And they certainly don’t know how to program a lethal virus like avian flu to make it transmissible. (Bird flu infections—based on the H5H1 virus—guarantee a terrifying death rate, but are very poorly transmissible between humans.) The results of our inquiry into the science of virology in relation to a sample of popular conspiracy theories appears at our blog (

But then, one must ask, what can mainstream scientists know about classified biowarfare research—especially if they, like most, are hopelessly naïve about the intersections of deep politics and health policy? There is no way a typical “white world” scientist can penetrate the biotechnology capacities of a deep-black Level 4 bioweapons lab in the U.S.—or in China or Russia for that matter.
Indeed, what the public and even mainstream science fins out about top-secret bioweapons research always comes too late. We’ll learn about it when a bioweaponized specimen accidently escapes from a lab (likely the case with lyme’s disease), or through an intentional release, as in the October 2001 anthrax attacks that revealed a terrifying degree of weaponization heretofore unknown to scientists. The HIV virus, itself widely believed to have been lab-created, also disclosed entirely unprecedented features in viral evolution.


But are the Vaccines Themselves Bioweaponized?

Turning things on their head, could the vaccines themselves be the agent of debility and death, as suggested by activist-physicians such as Dr. Len Horowitz, Dr. True Ott, Dr. William Deagle, and their numerous followers? According to this gruesome school of thought, a lab virus may indeed be manipulated for release according to a devious plan. But it’s not this flu bug itself that will cause the pandemic; it’s the vaccine’s side effects and hidden ingredients. Some believe that introducing weaponized vaccines are the criminal motivation behind last year’s ludicrous propaganda program for vaccinating—that is, intentionally poisoning or impairing the immune systems of—the world’s population. And it is here that one begins to realize that tracking down these issues virtually requires the mind of a criminologist or a psychiatrist.

As stated, few know that this very phenomenon actually has a track record; below we cite a few salient cases of vaccine-induced disease among the many in past history, not all of which were intentional.

A case in point is the 1918 Spanish flu, the greatest pandemic in recorded world history. Most mainstream accounts omit the fact that this calamity was actually caused by vaccines given to WWI soldiers to guard against typhoid. Viruses as a species were as yet unknown, and the vaccine being used were later found to be contaminated with what turned out to be the 1918 version of H1N1 swine flu.1

The earliest case of intentional VID occurred in Kansas City and then in Pittsburgh in the early 1920’s. In each city, hundreds of thousands of innocent citizens were convinced by scary campaigns to get vaccinated against non-existent threats of smallpox. Amazingly, court testimony and documents prove that public health authorities colluded with local and state chapters of the AMA to literally induce a smallpox epidemic; the deed was accomplished by means of vaccinations against smallpox, despite the fact that no cases of the disease had been previously documented in these cities. The vaccines themselves induced hundreds of deaths and thousands of cases of debilitating smallpox among these manipulated populations. The conspirators were convicted for this crime, but the story is not widely known.2

In the second case, history records that the initial batches of Dr. Jonas Salk’s polio vaccine produced thousands of cases of poliomyelitis in vaccinated individuals in the 1950s. (One notable case occurred earlier in the century—that of Franklin D. Roosevelt.) The Salk calamity was due to an unsafe amount of live viruses in the vaccine itself. Dr. Sabin then introduced his an improved vaccine with “attenuated” live viruses in 1958, and the following year his vaccine was made to be compulsory for all school-age children in a number of states. The record shows that polio increased significantly in these states. Strong documentation favors the idea that the disappearance of polio was caused not by the vaccine, but by improved water-treatment facilities that became standardized across America by the early 1960s; polio is a water-born disease.

Worse still is the case of a virus called SV- 40; the new Sabin vaccines were contaminated with mutated monkey virus called SV- 40. This is purported to have caused untold millions of cancers worldwide. A cancer-causing monkey virus, SV- 40, was discovered in polio vaccines administered to millions of people. SV- 40 has been widely found in brain tumors, bone cancers, lung cancers and leukemia since that time.3

It has also been charged by many, most notably Dr. Len Horowitz in his voluminous writings, that the WHO and other conspirators knowingly added HIV viruses to hepatitis B vaccines injected into thousands of homosexual men and intravenous drug users in America’s inner cities resulting in the AIDS epidemic in the 1980s; Horowitz also charges that HIV was introduced into African nations through smallpox vaccinations in the 1970s. A leading cancer researcher, Dr. Michele Carbone, Director of the Cancer Research Center of Hawaii, and full Professor and Chairman, Department of Pathology at the John A. Burns School of Medicine, has “openly acknowledged HIV/AIDS was spread by the hepatitis B vaccine produced by Merck & Co. during the early 1970s. This is the first time since the initial transmissions took place in 1972-74, that a leading expert in the field of vaccine manufacturing and testing has openly admitted the Merck & Co. liability for AIDS.” This admission was published at the website of Semmelweis Society International.4

We do know that the WHO began a massive smallpox vaccination program in Africa in 1975. A decade later, independent journalists writing in The London Times reported that the incidence of AIDS infections coincided exactly with the locations of these smallpox-vaccination program centers.5

Then there’s the more widely known 1976-1977 outbreak of swine flu in the U.S., which shares features of the 2009 H1N1 disaster with respect to its frenzy of media propaganda. This hurriedly produced campaign led to perhaps the greatest US public health disaster of the century—40 million Americans took a vaccine that was devastating in its side effects to a significant percentage; President Gerald Ford was forced to quickly suspend the vaccination drive. Amazingly, this swine flu outbreak has been widely acknowledged by top officials, including Dr. David Sencer, then head of the CDC, to have been “laboratory sourced.” 6

Finally, in one of the most important investigative pieces ever written on the vaccination industry, Robert Kennedy, Jr., has recently published suppressed information—much of it obtained by FOIA requests—showing that America’s public-health authorities knowingly conspired with the pharmaceutical industry to suppress the link between thimerosol, a mercury-laced additive approved for use in vaccines until 2001, and childhood autism. Kennedy recounts the story of the steps by which, with the CDC in the lead, this de facto criminal operation conspired to systematically ignore, suppress, or distort incriminating data supporting what thousands of parents of autistic kids already believe about thimerosol from their own experience.

This is What We Call a Conspiracy, Right?

His piece opens with a chilling account of a secret meeting held in June 2000 by high-level officials from the CDC, the FDA, the top vaccine specialist from the WHO, and representatives of every major vaccine manufacturer, including GlaxoSmithKline, Merck, Wyeth and Aventis Pasteur to discuss a definitive study by a CDC epidemiologist named Tom Verstraeten. This scientist had analyzed the agency’s massive database containing the medical records of 100,000 children, and concluded that thimerosal “appeared to be responsible for a dramatic increase in autism and a host of other neurological disorders among children. ‘I was actually stunned by what I saw,’ Verstraeten told those assembled at Simpsonwood [the secret location of the meeting in rural Georgia], citing the staggering number of earlier studies that indicate a link between thimerosal and speech delays, attention-deficit disorder, hyperactivity and autism.

Much of this tragedy was the result of the fact that, “Since 1991, when the CDC and the FDA had recommended that three additional vaccines laced with the preservative be given to extremely young infants—in one case, within hours of birth—the estimated number of cases of autism had increased fifteenfold, from one in every 2,500 children to one in 166 children.” The actions of the conspirators, Kennedy concludes, “arguably constitute one of the biggest scandals in the annals of American medicine.” 7

Fraudulent Claims of Vaccine Safety and Efficacy

In an earlier investigative piece, “The Infection Deception-I” (see our blog at we made a number of preliminary discoveries about the veracity of the official swine-flu story. First, we noted the conclusion arising from the most systematic review of the published research ever carried out, which shows that vaccines have little or no effect on influenza. Almost without exception, the studies are either junk science, or are riddled with conflict of interest; as with most studies of pharmaceutical products, vaccine studies are funded by those who manufacture them. (See Chapter 5 of our book, A Return to Healing, for additional documentation of this sad fact.) We also examined the very strong indications of both anticipated and unforeseeable safety problems, especially with a vaccine that was rushed into production with minimal oversight by the FDA.
Indeed, vaccines used in the U.S. are not safe or at least not safety tested—not only for adults, but especially for at-risk groups such as infants, small children, pregnant mothers, the elderly, and those with asthma and compromised immune systems. “There are no requirements before FDA approval and licensing that a vaccine undergoes independent studies by researchers with no vested financial interests and industry ties in order to validate a vaccine maker’s claims,” state two leading independent researchers, Richard Gale and Dr. Gary Null. “Clinical trials with at-risk individuals . . . are not mandatory for regulatory approval . . . The vaccine industrial complex is under no federal obligation to give sound scientific evidence that their vaccines are safe in anyone except healthy adults.” Instead, the researchers stated, they simply supply mathematical projections based on data collected in the past. 8

Dr. Tom Jefferson, one of the world’s most knowledgeable experts in vaccine research and head of the Vaccine Field Group at the Cochrane Database Collaboration, an independent think tank that does not accept corporate funds, bluntly told the Financial Times that “there is no knowledge whatsoever that these vaccines are safe.” 9

Also damning to the flu-vaccine establishment’s claims of efficacy are the following two cases, originally cited in the November 2009 issue of The Atlantic:

Case 1: The manufacturers of the 2004 seasonal flu vaccine happened to fall far behind their production schedules for technical reasons, causing a 40 percent drop in immunization rates; nevertheless, mortality did not rise that year.

Case 2: Complete vaccine “mismatches” have occurred twice. (This can happen because each spring experts choose—from among the many strains that are emergent worldwide—three flu strains that they believe will become most prevalent by the coming winter; only these three are targeted by that year’s vaccine.) In two years, 1968 and 1997, there was a complete miss. Yet, “death rates from all causes, including flu and the various illnesses it can exacerbate, did not budge,” reported The Atlantic.10

Given this track record, government agencies have little choice but to collude with vaccine manufacturers to obscure the truth.

For example, the studies on H1N1 vaccine performed by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), part of the National Institutes of Health, are being done in collaboration with two the manufacturers themselves, Novartis and Sanofi Pasteur. In fact, Novartis’ head of strategic immunization planning, Dr. Clement Levin, and Sanofi Pasteur’s president, Damian Braga, sit on the CDC’s key oversight body, the Advisory Committee for Immunization Practices (ACIP). “There is no indication of any independent research entities participating in the trials without financial ties to the pharmaceutical industry,” assert Richard Gale and Dr Gary Null.11
These agencies also shamelessly practice junk science. Standard scientific protocol would require that a group of vaccinated individuals would be compared to a similar or identical group that is unvaccinated during the flu season. However, the vaccine industry simply does not conduct such controlled trials; in fact, point out Gale and Null, none of the recently announced NIAID’s studies are identified as ‘controlled’ in their official documents.

NIAID studies of vaccines are usually perfunctory. Its study on the H1N1 vaccine’s safety for persons suffering with asthma enrolled only 350-400 individuals and had no control group; yet an earlier Canadian survey of 134,000 people has already found that 80 percent were more likely to experience exacerbations requiring the use of inhalers and nebulizers than unvaccinated controls.
Finally, in our earlier piece, we also showed with the publicly available data that 2009 H1N1 is far less lethal than ordinary seasonal flu. We also go on to contemplate the bizarre fact that President Obama declared swine flu a national health emergency on October 23, even as the rate of infection by this relatively benign virus began to decline. We also saw that, just two days previous to Obama’s surprise announcement, CBS News broadcasted its findings from a major investigation of the CDC’s that entirely refuted the need for such an emergency declaration; the CDC’s swine-flu incidence data was shown to likely be fraudulent. 12 And its most recent estimate of over 10,000 total U.S. deaths is especially suspect, and certainly not backed by laboratory evidence.

What’s the Problem With Geneva?

From the outset, WHO Director General Dr. Margaret Chan seemed almost eager for a pandemic to call her very own, when she declared on April 29—with very scanty evidence in hand—that a “global outbreak is imminent.” Chan’s initial declaration was based on the alleged fact that, as she said, “So far, 176 people have been killed in Mexico.” Unfortunately, this crucial number turned out to be highly misleading. Soon after her announcement, only 19 deaths were shown by lab analysis to result from the H1N1 swine flu strain—a sketchy way to launch a global pandemic!

The mild, new strain was certainly communicable, as it did manage to travel around the world to numerous countries. So by June 11 Chan and the WHO raised the level of influenza pandemic alert to Phase 6, the highest possible—making it the first flu pandemic declaration in 41 years. Under enforceable United Nations and World Trade Organization rules, this gave the WHO extraordinary powers to override the health policy regulations of any member nation; it could now dictate national policy from the global level—including the right to coerce a nation’s populations to get vaccinated—at any time it deemed necessary during the level 6 classification.

By the way, the Phase 6 declaration was also good for business: WHO member nations were compelled by treaty rules to implement pandemic plans and also the purchase swine flu vaccines whenever a Level 6 pandemic is declared.

Later in June the WHO claimed that “as many as 2 billion people could become infected over the next two years—nearly one-third of the world population.” It also asserted that at least 4.9 billion doses would be needed to inoculate the planet, representing an estimated $400 billion in revenue to vaccine manufacturers.

But how, you may ask, was the WHO able to utilize this highest-possible classification for the first time since 1968, when all the data pointed to a mild virus? Easy: They just eased up significantly on the definition of the word “pandemic.”

No kidding.

Spiegel Online explored this aspect of the 2009 swine-flu scandal with Dr. Tom Jefferson. Jefferson shot back with his own question: “Don’t you think there’s something noteworthy about the fact that the WHO has changed its definition of pandemic? The old definition was a new virus, which went around quickly, for which you didn’t have immunity, and which created a high morbidity and mortality rate. Now the last two have been dropped, and that’s how swine flu has been categorized as a pandemic.” 13

Wolfgang Wodarg, the chair of the Health Committee in The European Council, a German parliamentarian who is also an epidemiologist, also found it “suspicious” that WHO changed its definition of a pandemic “on it’s homepage at the end of May . . . From June 2009 it is no longer necessary,” said Wodard, “that an enormous amount of people have contracted the illness or died. There simply has to be a virus, spreading beyond borders, and one that people have no immunity towards.” 14

Since last June, the global vaccine industry has filled orders in the range of three billion doses during the course of the 2009-2010 flu season; the US alone spent over $7 billion to stockpile the nation with upwards to 250 million doses and for other related expenses, and 60 million were vaccinated.
But what exactly caused the overreaction in Geneva that led to such efforts and expenditures?
One clue comes from a close look at where the WHO gets its funding. Its annual budget for 2010 was $5 billion; $4 billion or eighty percent of this comes from voluntary contributions from pharmaceutical companies, foundations, and other donors.15 Let us dispense, then, with the widely believed notion that the WHO operates on behalf of the world’s peoples. Four-fifths of its operating budget comes from Pharma or private foundations whose agendas are not subject to transparency or accountability.

The WHO has also refused to give the names of 18 members of a key secret committee that played a key role in the pandemic emergency declaration. It is, however, known that “at least seven members of a key vaccine advisory board, whose acronym is SAGE, have financial links to pharmaceutical companies, raising fears of conflicts of interest. Also, dozens of pharmaceutical executives were present allegedly as ‘observers’ at a meeting of SAGE in July. WHO refused to release the minutes of this meeting, reinforcing the impression that it is engaged in concealing the influential role of pharmaceutical companies in its decision-making process.” 16

Indeed, European investigators have now concluded that WHO’s behavior was directly compromised by its institutional links to Big Pharma. A leading daily Danish newspaper, Information, discovered that SAGE’s head, a Dutch doctor named Albert Ostenhaus, also known as “Dr. Flu,” apparently loves the flu enough to receives a salary from several vaccine manufacturers. This revelation led the government of the Netherlands to announce an emergency investigation into the activities of Ostenhaus. The paper also found that other WHO “experts” and SAGE members were also found to be paid advisers to pharmaceutical giants Roche, RW Johnson, SmithKline and Beecham Glaxo Wellcome—these being the companies who had received the lion’s share of orders for the manufacturing of H1N1 vaccine. 17

“It is disturbing that many of the scientists who sit on various committees of WHO are presented as ‘independent experts,’ but they carefully conceal the fact that they receive money from pharmaceutical companies,” Dr. Tom Jefferson told reporters. 18

Alert European journalists also discovered rank conflict of interest in a related European Union body. Der Spiegel reported that members of the European Scientific Working Group on Influenza (ESWI), which claims to be an independent scientific advisory body advising EU member governments on policies regarding H1N1 influenza, is directed financed by Big Pharma. “ESWI claims it brings together scientific ‘key opinion leaders in influenza.’ However the sole financial backers are ten leading pharmaceutical companies.” 19

The coup de gras came on January 2, 2010, when it was announced that the Council of Europe Parliament member states will launch an immediate inquiry into “the influence of the pharmaceutical companies on the global swine flu campaign.” The parliamentary motion was introduced by Dr. Wolfgang Wodarg, who said he considers the current pandemic campaign of the WHO to be “one of the greatest medicine scandals of the century.” The text of Wodarg’s resolution states: “In order to promote their patented drugs and vaccines against flu, pharmaceutical companies influenced scientists and official agencies, responsible for public health standards to alarm governments worldwide and make them squander tight health resources for inefficient vaccine strategies and needlessly expose millions of healthy people to the risk of an unknown amount of side-effects of insufficiently tested vaccines.” 20

This inquiry will be given “urgent” priority in the general assembly of the parliament.
In his official statement to the Committee, Wodarg also criticized the influence of the pharma industry on scientists and officials of WHO, stating that it has led to situation where “unnecessarily millions of healthy people are exposed to the risk of poorly tested vaccines,” and that, for a flu strain that is “vastly less harmful” than all previous flu epidemics. 21

Citizens React to the Global Swine Flu Debacle

On December 12 several hundred citizens of Edinburgh, Scotland took to the streets to protest the global swine-flu vaccine program. Clare Knox, a spokesperson for the march, eerily alluded to their own Duke of Edinburgh’s famous statement in a widely seen YouTube clip, claiming that the accidental release of a virulent vaccine solution made by a large U.S. corporation, Baxter AG, “could be a bio-weapon to reduce the population.”

Seen streaming in the background behind Knox was an activist coterie of all ages—including physicians and health care practitioners—heading down the city’s Royal Mile toward the Scottish Parliament. Their signs and slogans included: Swine flu is a hoax! . . . Fight the vaccination . . . Vaccines KILL . . .Untested, Unsafe, Unnecessary. . . Fight the swine flu scam! . . . Demand autism research!

Knox’s charge about a suspected vaccine bio-weapon actually refers to a factual event. In an alarming incident reported in Reuters in February 2009, it was learned that Baxter had “accidently” mailed a mislabeled compound containing live avian flu admixed with what the leading vaccine maker had intended to send: human H3N2 flu virus. Avian flu is known as the world’s most lethal virus. But she asserted that we do have “evidence of a massive media frenzy” over swine flu vaccination, as did another young Scottish demonstrator, Allen Krieg, who called the swine flu problem an “Orwellian myth created by the media.” 22

Concurrently—but on the other side of the Atlantic—ordinary Amerians waited in long lines to receive their shots in dozens of cities around the U.S. Typical was the scene in San Rafael, California, where “thousands of people waited in line for up to two hours” at a health clinic that was scheduled to give shots beginning at 9:00 am. People began lining up as early as 5 a.m., officials said. “It’s longer than lines at Disneyland,” said one person to a reporter. 23

Disneyland would be a fair comparison. With a carefully controlled issue like pandemic swine flu, most citizens simply get lost in a fantastic wonderland of junk science, corporate greed, government collusion, and relentless propaganda.

No wonder conspiracy stories circulate so widely.

The Infrastructure of Global Genocide

The September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks and subsequent anthrax mailings became the pretext for a huge expansion of research for the production of genetically-modified bacteria and viruses for deployment as bioweapons. During the Bush era, tens of billions of dollars were appropriated for R & D including nearly $1.7 billion for new “high containment facilities” (called Biosafety Level 4 or BSL-4 facilities) for bioweapons-related research with agents that “may be transmitted via the aerosol route and for which there is no available vaccine or therapy.” The source of this information is congressional testimony by biological and chemical weapons expert Dr. Alan M. Pearson. Pearson testified that very little oversight or accountability was built in to these appropriations.

Prior to 2002, “there were three significant BSL-4 facilities in the United States. Today twelve are in operation, under construction, or in the planning stage,” Pearson told Congress. “The number of BSL-3 labs is also clearly growing, and it is know that there are at least 600 such facilities in the US.” 24

Disturbingly, a recent Government Accountability Office (GAO) report faulted the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for lax security at three of the nation’s five BSL-4 labs currently in operation that “handle the world’s most dangerous agents and toxins that cause incurable and deadly diseases.” Agents such as Ebola and smallpox are routinely studied at these facilities. Clearly, building more labs designed to “protect America against foreign bioterrorists” raise the odds for the accidental or intentional release of a genocidal “lab virus”—or in the notorious case of the 2001 anthrax attacks, a lab bacteria. 25

In that incident, the highly weaponized anthrax spores found in the letters mailed to Senators Daschle and Leahy contained the equivalent of the dosage needed to kill 200 million people—that is, most of the American population. This is at minimum a metaphor for the intent to depopulate!
And it is worrisome to contemplate why, seven years later, the FBI pinned this incident on Bruce Ivins, who worked at a lab [Ft. Detrick] that clearly did not have the facilities required for producing such weapons-grade anthrax. For, the evidence in case of the 2001 anthrax attacks “points to a direct connection between our secret anthrax weaponization projects and the attack anthrax . . . the consensus among biodefense specialists working for the government and the military [was that] . . . the powder mailed to the Senate . . . was a diabolical advance in biological weapons technology,” writes Gary Matsumoto of Science Magazine. “Later denials of these facts by the FBI, and the pinning of the incident on a lone gunman [Bruce Ivins], have fallen flat. It was a brazen attempt to cover up just how advanced the work on anthrax had become.” It is widely know among experts that the U.S. Army’s Dugway Proving Ground in Utah and the Battelle Corporation in Ohio are the only two American facilities that can produce such high-grade anthrax. 26

This raises disturbing and still unanswered questions: Just who inside American’s most advanced anthrax labs had the means and motive to mail these letters, and why? Aside from terrorizing two Senators who were Democratic Party critics of the tactics of Bush’s new War on Terror, was this incident some sort of “demo” by rogue elements inside the U.S. bioweapons industry in regard to the genocidal lethality of America’s weapons-grade anthrax. Was it something meant for future reference in a terror event to come?

The anthrax incident—and the vast expasion of bioweapons R&D since the Bush era—both point to the likelihood that the US is almost certainly in violation of the 1972 Bioweapons Treaty. Meanwhile, the Obama administration shows few signs of rolling back US involvement in such treacherous programs that, as we see from the above example, can easily spin out of control.

The Deep Politics, H1N1, and the Future of Medicine

H1N1 may or may not be a hi-tech lab virus or an excuse for injecting poisonous vaccines, but there is one conspiracy that we can substantiate—one that alone places this aspect of modern medicine in the domain of criminalized politics.

In “Infection Deception I” we explained in detail how—in the very midst of an alleged flu pandemic—the federal government has been actively suppressing purveyors of antiviral herbs and other immune-boosting natural substances in the form of intimidating legal notices sent to numerous companies, most of them small herb retailers.

One of these letters was sent to high-profile, bestselling physician Dr. Andrew Weil. As with each of the vendors of these natural substances, Weil was ordered by the FDA to “cease and desist” from selling an astragalus herbal formula. The letter claimed that Dr. Weil had been promoting his immune-boosting formula as a preventive measure against the H1N1 virus “. . . without rigorous scientific evidence sufficient to substantiate the claims.” Never mind that numerous scientific studies and centuries of clinical observation demonstrate that the herb astragalus does indeed boost human immunity to all infections. Can it be that the FDA has never heard of botany?

Our own investigation discovered that the FDA sent such Warning Letters to a total of 70 companies. The banned methods of preventing or treating H1N1 swine flu include the use of well-known herbs such as echinacea and elderberry, pinecone extract, oil-leaf extract, devices such as air filters, and even vitamin D.

It has long been known that a principal cause of seasonal flu is the wintertime lack of exposure to sunlight, which triggers the production of vitamin D in the skin. Because vitamin D deficiency is common in the winter, a proven method to keep oneself from catching an infectious disease is vitamin D supplementation; the science on this issue is settled. 27

The systematic suppression of such well-understood natural substances as astragalus and vitamin D lends itself to the charge of gross criminal neglect. Millions of Americans who believe they need the H1N1 vaccine are not being told to boost their immunity as a preventive measure. Our health officials are not even telling them to engage in exercise, another scientifically proven prophylaxis against infections. With occasional exceptions, ordinary Americans only hear reference to the politically approved products of the pharmaceutical-industrial complex.

And what if the flu somehow morphs into a strain not addressed in currently available H1N1 vaccines? Most Americans will be defenseless. The vast majority will, again, be unaware of commonsense approaches to boosting their immunity to infection.

We’ve shown how flimsy and corrupt is the “science” and the politics behind this global push to vaccinate the world’s people. Worldwide, there are no well-controlled human clinical studies backing the efficacy of flu vaccines. They simply don’t exist. On the other side—taking the simple example of the herb astragalus—one can cite two millennia of clinical use in China, an impeccable safety record, and controlled modern scientific studies. The situation is epitomized by a recent statement by Luc Montagnier, MD, 2008 Nobel Laureate and discoverer of HIV: “The drug industry pushes ineffective drugs and vaccines because they cannot profit from good nutrition or clean water.”

And thus, in the end, the issue was not really science, then, is it? Rather it’s a matter of naked political power organized to guarantee profit and social control.

We’ve highlighted the swine flu case in this essay, but it’s just one small feature of a much larger battlefront: modern medicine’s war against commonsense and good science—which in turn translates into a war on the world’s population and on nature itself. This, at a bare minimum, is the depopulation agenda that we can prove. As for other indications of criminal intent, the jury awaits more research to provide better evidence—along with global activism backed by the improved organization of the political and spiritual power of the peoples of the world.
