Swine Flu Vaccine Linked to Paralysis

It is not any alleged “Swine Flu” or H1N1 “virus” that is the danger to the lives of our loved ones, our children, our pregnant mothers. We are being literally panicked by WHO, CDC, the US Government and uncritical mass media into demanding what amounts to legalized toxins as a “guard” against a disease so far milder than a common cold.

The few details that have managed to leak out regarding the contents of the fluids that major pharmaceutical companies want to inject into our veins confirm what I have been writing since the first alleged outbreak of Swine Flu in the environs of a factory pig farm in Veracruz Mexico.

The declaration by WHO of  Phase 6 “Pandemic Level” global health emergency was a political decision which had no relation to any proven “virus threat.” It had to do at the least with a multibillion dollar injection of hyper-profits into the coffers of a tiny handful of global vaccine giants—GlaxoSmithKline, Roche (Gilead Science Inc), Baxter Labs, Novartis,  Sanofi Pasteur and a few elite other drug giants.

More, the current H1N1 fear campaign from WHO, the German Robert Koch Institute, the US Government’s CDC, appears on serious examination to have to do not with safeguarding the public health, but rather with a long-term agenda of political control of populations through deliberate means of making them ill, weak, partly paralyzed or otherwise too weak to focus on the increasingly obvious social crisis facing us all, the global breakdown of the dollar system. Why else would allegedly responsible governments from the United States to the Federal Republic of Germany, from Britain to France, embrace such a manifest health hoax?

The simplest research of a high school pupil using official WHO and other government sources, can demonstrate this. If you doubt this, just commission your school age children to demonstrate, using only official sources, published on the internet, that there is no sound, public health reason to declare any special measures, let alone to authorize “fast track” rollout of new vaccines, untested, for mass injection in the population. Tell them that the students who make the best case from only official sources, will get the top honors in the course.

UK report of neurological damage from vaccine

According to a confidential warning letter written on July 29, 2009, a copy of which was leaked to the British newspaper, Daily Mail, the UK Government’s Health Protection Agency head of Immunization Department, Prof. Elizabeth Miller, warned British neurologists that the swine flu vaccine, which was briefly used in a mass vaccination program in 1976 in the USA until it was abruptly withdrawn because of dangerous side effects, is linked to Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS), a potentially deadly and nerve crippling of the central nervous system. Guillain-Barre Syndrome attacks the lining of the nerves, causing paralysis and inability to breathe, and can be fatal. It can cause paralysis of the breathing muscles that can cause death by suffocation.

The warning letter of Prof. Miller states, “The vaccines used to combat an expected swine influenza pandemic in 1976 were shown to be associated with GBS and were withdrawn from use.” The US Government was forced in the 1976 Swine Flu scandal to pay out millions of dollars in damages to victims of GBS who had received the vaccine.

The UK Government plans to inject 13 million British citizens beginning October with virtually untested H1N1 vaccines. The British Neurological Surveillance Unit (BNSU), part of the British Association of Neurologists, has been asked to monitor closely any cases of GBS as the vaccine is rolled out. One senior neurologist told the press off-record, “I would not have the swine flu jab because of the GBS risk.”

Miller’s letter was reportedly sent to 600 British neurologists on July 29, a sign that there is concern at the highest levels that the vaccine itself could cause serious complications. The letter notes, referring to the similar swine flu vaccination process in the USA in 1976 that “more people died from the vaccination than from swine flu; some 500 cases of GBS were found; vaccines may have increased risk of GBS by 800%; the US vaccine was withdrawn after just ten weeks when Government scientists confirmed the link with GBS; the US Government then was forced to pay tens of millions of dollars to those affected. They monitored that within days, symptoms of GBS were reported among those who had been immunised and 25 people died from respiratory failure after severe paralysis. One in 80,000 people came down with the condition. In contrast, just one person died of swine flu.

Notably, the Obama Administration has issued a special ruling exempting the vaccine makers from all liability from the vaccines. Most alarming in this context is the fact that the new vaccine has not been sufficiently tested and that the effects, especially on children, are unknown. Yet small children and pregnant mothers are the first priority to be vaccinated under WHO recommendations.

However, as leading European epidemiologists confirm privately, the effects of the so-called H1N1 Influenza A or “Swine Flu” are to date extremely mild, comparable to a common cold and disappear in a few days with bed rest. The deaths, as CDC and other health agencies have had to admit, all took place in patients with previous severe respiratory problems or other severe illness, and have in no known case been definitively linked to Swine Flu. The deaths were what epidemiologists term “opportunistic” that is “coincidental” not causal.

GBS however, which is believed linked to adjuvants present in the new vaccines, can cause paralysis and death. One woman, Hilary Wilkinson, was stricken with GBS and had to be fed through a drip while needing a tracheotomy just to breathe. It took her three months in the hospital to learn how to walk and talk again. On the topic of the swine flu vaccine, she says today, “It makes me feel wary that the Government is rolling out this vaccine without any clear idea of the GBS risk, if any. I wouldn’t wish it on anyone.”

An 800% rise in GBS risk

Another letter with a warning about the swine flu vaccine from the Association of British Neurologists, signed by Dr. Rustam Al-Shahi Salman and Professor Patrick Chinnery, says, “Following the 1976 program of vaccination against swine influenza in the US, a retrospective study found a possible eight-fold increase in the incidence of GBS.” That is 800% increase after vaccination of 40 million Americans was done on a similar “health emergency” basis before abruptly being withdrawn. The 1976 swine flu mass vaccination campaign was abandoned after hundreds of cases of GBS were diagnosed and 25 died.

An emergency mass vaccination program was backed by President Gerald Ford that year because Center for Disease Control head, Dr. David Sencer, convinced the White House that the swine flu strain was similar to the one responsible for the 1918-19 pandemic, which he claimed had killed half a million Americans and 20 million people worldwide. Sencer was forced to resign in disgrace months later. The current CDC and WHO hysteria campaign over “H1N1 Influenza A Swine Flu” bears ominous similarities to that of 1976.

According to the British Dr Tom Jefferson, co-ordinator of the vaccines section of the influential Cochrane Collaboration, an independent British group that reviews drug research, says, “New vaccines never behave in the way you expect them to. It may be that there is a link to GBS, which is certainly not something I would wish on anybody. But it could end up being anything because one of the additives in one of the vaccines is a substance called squalene, and none of the studies we’ve extracted have any research on it at all.” Squalene, a naturally occurring enzyme, could potentially cause so-far-undiscovered side effects.

In other words, what we have with the new versions of H1N1 “swine flu” vaccine is an untested, potentially dangerous cocktail of chemicals and viral fragments that could plausibly be linked to a devastating neurological condition, or worse.

The doctors and scientists are warning about the possibility of dangerous neurological side effects precisely because the government is failing to do so. Governments and pharmaceutical companies don’t want people to know about risks associated with the vaccine, so they don’t talk about them. Nor do they reveal the rather startling fact that the vaccine has never been tested on children or expectant mothers even though those are the two primary groups being targeted for the vaccine.

Vaccines are the bedrock of the pharmaceutical industry’s profit centers. Through vaccines, the drug companies can ensure generations of future profits from diseases that have been identified in numerous studies as triggered or worsened by vaccines, including Alzheimer’s, cancer, autism, Parkinson’s disease, and others.

British Conservative Party Health Parliament Spokesman, Mike Penning has stated, “The last thing we want is secret letters handed around experts within the NHS. Our job is to make sure that the public knows what’s going on. Why is the Government not being open about this? It’s also very worrying if doctors, who will be administering the vaccine, aren’t being warned.”

Martial Law Alert Over Swine Flu

Martial Law Alert Over Swine Flu
By Stephen Lendman
Fact check –
— no Swine Flu threat exists;
— reported H1N1 infections and deaths are uncorroborated;
— WHO predicting a global pandemic affecting “as many as two billion people….over the next two years” is falsified hype unless a diabolical depopulation scheme (by vaccines or other means) plans to create one;
— vaccines don’t protect against diseases they’re designed to prevent and often cause them;
— all vaccines contain harmful toxins, including mercury, aluminum, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol (antifreeze), and squalene adjuvants that weaken and can destroy the human immune system, making it vulnerable to many annoying to life-threatening illnesses; and
— evidence suggests that the H1N1 strain was bioengineered in a US laboratory, and the vaccines being produced for it are extremely hazardous and potentially lethal.
Under no circumstances should anyone submit to them even if threatened with fines, quarantine, or incarceration.
Government and PhRMA Are Enemies, Not Protectors
On April 26, the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) issued a “Determination that a Public Health Emergency Exists….as a consequence of confirmed cases of H1N1 Influenza in four US states.” At an April 27 press briefing, Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Janet Napolitano said:
Yesterday “I issued a public health emergency declaration” as part of “standard operating procedure” to make more government resources available to combat the spread of Swine Flu. She then ordered the FDA “to proceed to permit things like Tamiflu to be used for populations that they otherwise wouldn’t be used for – in this case, for example, very, very young children.”
On November 13, 2005, Japan’s Health Ministry said it was “looking into reports of a number of sudden deaths of young people who had taken prescribed dosages of Tamiflu.” The Ministry also “found 64 cases of psychological disorders linked to the drug in the past four years.”
The Japan Institute of Pharmaco-Vigilance head, Dr. Rokura Hama, said “Tamiflu appears to be similar to other powerful drugs that can cause behavioral changes” by affecting the central nervous system. It’s the leading medication prescribed for the treatment and prevention of flu. In April, DHS ordered 12 million doses made available in locations around the country for quick access if needed.
Then on June 11, the World Health Organization (WHO) “raise(d) the level of (Swine Flu) influenza pandemic alert from phase 5 to phase 6,” its highest level in declaring “The world is now at the start of the 2009 influenza pandemic,” while admitting its severity would likely be “moderate (and) most people will recover from swine flu within a week, just as they would from seasonal forms of influenza.” The WHO no longer reports “confirmed” Swine Flu cases globally, yet continues to hype the scare without corroborating proof.
There was no emergency earlier or now, but you’d never know it from hyped media reports to convince people voluntarily to submit to experimental, untested, toxic and extremely dangerous vaccines that damage the human immune system and cause health problems ranging from annoying to life-threatening.
George Bush’s Executive Orders (EOs) 13295 and 13375, Homeland Security Presidential Directive-21, and Military Pandemic Planning
In addition to the federal laws below, the Bush EOs, HSPD-21, and Pentagon plan suggest a hidden agenda behind today’s Swine Flu crisis as a way to institute martial law on the pretext of a public health emergency, using hyped fear to win popular acquiescence.
On April 4, 2003, EO 13295 issued a “Revised List of Quarantinable Communicable Diseases” that included cholera, diphtheria, infectious TB, plague, smallpox, yellow fever, severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), and viral hemorrhagic fevers like ebola and lassa.
On April 1, 2005, EO 13375 amended EO 13295 by adding “the following new subsection:”
“(c) Influenza caused by novel or reemergent influenza viruses that are causing, or have the potential to cause, a pandemic.”
The October 2007 HSPD-21 “establishe(d) a National Strategy for Public Health and Medical Preparedness which builds upon principles set forth in (the 2004) Biodefense for the 21st Century and will transform our national approach to protecting the health of the American people against all disasters.”
It called for:
— “nationwide, robust, and integrated biosurveillance…to provide early warning and ongoing characterization of disease outbreaks in near real-time;
— countermeasure stockpiling and distribution….of medical countermeasures (vaccines, drugs, and therapeutics) to a large population….;
— mass casualty care….created by a catastrophic health event;” and
— “community resilience” whereby “civic leaders, citizens, and families are educated regarding threats and are empowered to mitigate their own risk;” in addition, the federal government must be involved in “medical preparedness to assist (nationwide) in the face of potential catastrophic health events.”
In May 2007, the Department of Defense’s (DOD) “Implementation Plan for Pandemic Influenza” prepared for a possible H5N1 (Avian Flu) pandemic that could affect up to one-third of the population and kill as many as three million in just weeks, it was claimed. It involved using US troops to put down riots, guard pharmaceutical plants and shipments, and restrict the movement of people inside the country and across borders.
This plan remains active and US laws authorize it, including Sections 1076 and 333 of the John Warner National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2007 that amended the 1807 Insurrection Act and 1878 Posse Comitatus Act. They prohibit using federal and National Guard troops for law enforcement except as constitutionally allowed or expressly authorized by Congress in times of a national emergency like an insurrection.
The president may now announce a public emergency, declare martial law, suspend the Constitution, and deploy US troops on city streets to suppress what he calls disorder.
The Legal Basis for Quarantines
Vaccine law expert Alan G. Phillips says:
“….underlying laws….allow states to mandate vaccines in an emergency….throw out exemptions….impose quarantines and isolation outside of our homes,” and the only way around this is to “chang(e) state policy and law.”
US laws are similar. They can mandate vaccinations and let states isolate and quarantine Swine Flu victims if authorities call the disease infectious and life-threatening.
Under the proposed Model State Emergency Health Powers Act (MSEHPA), civil liberties may be suspended in case of a public health emergency, with or without verifiable evidence.
The September 2003 Turning Point Model State Public Health Act (MSPHA) lets state, local, and tribal governments revise or update public health statutes and administrative regulations. According to James Hodges, executive director of Johns Hopkins and Georgetown University’s Centers for Law and the Public Health, over half the states have these laws that can order flu testing, ban public gatherings, mandate quarantines, and issue other emergency public health directives.
Federal laws already do it, including the 2006 Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness (PREP) Act that lets the HHS Secretary declare any disease an epidemic or national emergency requiring mandatory vaccinations. It also protects drug companies from tort liability, except in cases of “willful misconduct.”
US State Responses to Swine Flu
Growing numbers of states are exploiting the hyped scare by declaring a public health emergency. Others are passing laws that order forced quarantines, impose fines or imprisonment for offenders, and prepare to govern under martial law with local police, National Guard, or federal troops for enforcement.
Florida ordered voluntary or mandatory detentions at home or in state-designated facilities as well as closures of suspected buildings and areas. Quarantine Detention Orders state:
— “non-compliant” persons are ordered to “remain in detention quarantine until released by the State Epidemiologist or Health Officer;”
— at home, they must wear surgical masks at all times in the presence of anyone, even family members, and follow other required instructions while in isolation;
— in state-run facilities, they must “comply with all orders….regarding (their) medical care,” and must “cooperate with the detention facility’s access to (themselves) and (their) medical records for purposes of delivering and monitoring (their) medical care;” and
— these “action(s are) taken under the police power authority of the health department and your cooperation is required by law;” failure to comply is a “crime.”
Forms circulating on the Internet show that Iowa ordered home or facility quarantines for anyone suspected of possible H1N1 infection. However, Mason City, Iowa’s KIMT TV 3 reported that “Health leaders in (the state) are reassuring people that there are no H1N1 related quarantines being ordered,” yet preparations have been made to do it.
North Carolina’s Draft Isolation Order calls for imprisonment for up to two years and pretrial detention for residents failing to comply with isolation orders.
Washington empowers local health authorities to issue emergency detention orders for up to 10 days.
On April 28, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger issued a “Proclamation to Confront Swine Flu Outbreak” and ordered “all state agencies and departments to utilize and employ state personnel, equipment and facilities to assist the Department of Public Health (DPH) and the State Emergency Plan as coordinated by the California Emergency Management Agency.”
He further proclaimed a “state of emergency” because of “conditions of extreme peril” in the State.
On April 26, New York Gov. David Paterson activated the state’s health emergency preparedness plan, thereby putting the state on “high alert to quickly identify and respond to any cases of swine flu.” No further action was taken.
On April 28, Texas became the second state to declare a Swine Flu emergency as officials closed schools and cancelled sporting events after an alleged fatality was reported. At a press conference, Gov. Rick Perry said:
“I’m issuing a disaster declaration which covers the entire state. This will move Texas to a higher state of alert and release resources to address the spread of the virus.” No further action was taken.
On May 1, Maryland’s Gov. Martin O’Malley’s executive order declared a public health emergency “based on an abundance of caution and concern for our students…If there is a probable case of H1N1 virus at any school, we will close that school and cease all extra-curricular activities for up to 14 days.”
He also ordered “appropriate emergency protective measures (be taken to) assist public and private sector employers (take) proactive steps to prevent the spread to influenza workers and their families.” He stopped short of more draconian measures, including statewide forced vaccinations and quarantines for resisters.
On August 6, the Minneapolis-St.Paul Star Tribune headlined: “As fall approaches, officials are taking a hard look at emergency plans in the event the virus strikes more aggressively.” On August 10, the paper reported, without elaboration, that state officials “have a plan ready if Minnesota’s health care system is swamped by 1.5 million cases.”
Other states took similar actions, including Nebraska, Ohio, Virginia and Wisconsin, and still others are considering them as the fall flu season approaches and children return to school.
After earlier issuing a “Proclamation of Civil Emergency due to a Highly Infectious Disease,” Maine Gov. John Balducci signed a Swine Flu civil emergency decree on September 1 that gives the WHO and UN martial law authority over the state and authorized the Maine Center for Disease Control to vaccinate the state’s residents. Making this mandatory wasn’t mentioned, but state civil emergency powers may allow it if ordered.
On April 28, the Massachusetts Senate unanimously passed the most draconian law to date, S. 2028, that imposes virtual martial law authority. If it’s passed in the House and becomes law, it gives the governor sweeping powers, lets public health officials mandate vaccinations, and, with law enforcement and medical personnel, enter private residences and businesses without warrants, quarantine non-compliers, and impose $1,000-a-day fines and/or imprisonment for up to 30 days.
It also authorizes:
— closures and evacuations to decontaminate residences, buildings or facilities;
— the destruction of suspect materials;
— restricting or prohibiting public gatherings;
— public health authorities to use or supervise private health care facilities and requires private health personnel to provide appropriate services, including vaccinating state residents;
— “the arrest without warrant (of anyone believed to have) violated an order for isolation or quarantine…;”
— control over “ingress (and) egress” from public areas and human traffic within them;
— enforcement measures for the safe disposal of “infectious waste and human remains;”
— control over all medical supplies as well as other measures needed to respond to the emergency;
— the use of state police for enforcement;
— control over “routes of transportation and over materials and facilities including but not limited to communication devices, carriers, public utilities, fuels, food, clothing, and shelter;” and
— public health officials to “institute appropriate civil proceedings against (properties) to be destroyed in accordance with the existing laws and rules of the courts of this Commonwealth or any such rules that may be developed by the courts for use during the emergency;” acquired properties may “be disposed of by destruction as the court may direct.”
Massachusetts may be a trial balloon for what federal authorities plan everywhere as the fall flu season approaches, to be followed by hyped reports of nationwide Swine Flu outbreaks, perhaps caused by the vaccines intended to prevent them.
In early July, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius announced that children, pregnant women, health care workers, and adults with chronic illnesses will be first to be vaccinated. Reports indicate that inoculations will begin in early October, preceded by media-hyped fear urging everyone to get one.
