Bird Flu

I sincerely hope by now that the vast majority of people are beginning to understand the outright insanity and the workings of the Hegelian dialectic. Scientific grants for "research" purposes are generally bestowed only upon those who are accomplishing works which serve to advance the cause of the global elite. If "our" fearless leaders really gave a "hoot" (forgive the bad pun) about "Homeland Security", they'd shut down these dangerous experiments at once. The fact is, they don't want to avoid a "Bird Flu" crisis. They'd much prefer to create one. Forced vaccinations are a part of the State Emergency Health Powers Act, passed after 9/11 was conveniently orchestrated by them.

From the standpoint of these earth-worshipping vermin, a real pandemic would serve to depopulate the planet and force the remaining few unfortunates to live within the "carrying capacity" of their beloved goddess, Mother Gaia.

To anyone who wishes to laughingly question this observer's sanity, you have the responsibility to do your own research. If you continue to poke fun at those who are researched enough to see the Hegelian dialectic at work, and the UN's depopulation agenda, then you are a fool and you deserve everything you have coming. I have no sympathy for fools who call names without pulling their lazy behinds away from TV, movies, sports, and video games long enough to research matters that are pertinent to their individual liberty.

I've personally read plenty of the trash that the United Nations' spews out, on a regular basis. Their anti-human bent is crystal clear. Anyone who learns their jargon and reads it, along with government reports like the Rockefeller Report on the Commission on Population Growth and the American Future will begin to get a clear understanding how we average human beings are viewed by the rich and powerful. As if to suggest that they, themselves, are somehow above being human, they clearly believe that "humans" are the worst thing to ever happen to planet earth.

Everyone should take the time to read how elite Professor Eric Pianka advocated the murder of 90 percent of the people inhabiting the planet. Then, move onto the the IRS tax-exempt Church of Euthanasia, where their motto is "Save the Planet, Kill Yourself".

It's time to grow up, quit being a fool, turn off the TV, the movies, the sports, and the video games, and start studying. You cannot win a war that you don't even know exists.

New Virus Less Than Pandemic

Using a new method to test potential pandemic flu strains, scientists have created a virus that contains genes from human and bird flus and found it lacks what it takes to cause a pandemic.

The researchers combined genes from a human flu strain, H3N2, and the H5N1 bird flu strain that emerged in Hong Kong in 1997, which is an earlier version of the deadly strain that is circulating in parts of Asia, Africa and Europe. They found that in animal experiments, the mixed virus lacks "the key property that predicts pandemic spread."

But experts say other gene combinations or mutations could turn H5N1 into a pandemic strain.

"We are far from out of the woods in H5N1 on a global scale," Julie Gerberding, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said in a briefing on the study, which was published Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

"These data do not mean that H5N1 cannot convert to be transmissible from one person to another person," she said. "They mean that it's probably not a simple process and more than simple genetic exchanges are necessary."

In four experiments, CDC scientists used reverse genetics to create a virus with both bird flu and human flu genes. They gave the hybrid strain to ferrets, which are good models for human flu studies because they have similar respiratory tract cells.

They found the virus containing genes from both bird and human flu strains was weaker than either parent virus. It caused milder illness and didn't spread easily.

The experiments were risky in that "the possibility was there" that a highly transmissible pandemic strain might have been created in the lab, said researcher Jacqueline Katz, "but the study was conducted using the most stringent safety precautions" in a biosafety level 3 lab.

Researchers used the combination they thought would have the greatest likelihood for transmission, but there are more than 50 other combinations possible. "Our results can't be generalized, and they're only relevant for the viruses we used in the study," which were the 1997 strains, Katz said. The researchers "didn't test the more recent strains (of H5N1) for their ability to transmit. We need to continue these studies."

The study is "really important from the perspective of developing a useful lab tool that we can use to study these viruses and combinations of genes," said Jeffrey Duchin of the Infectious Diseases Society of America and chief of communicable disease control at Public Health Seattle and King County, Wash. But "it doesn't tell us anything about the likelihood of this virus becoming a pandemic in the near future. We need to go on preparing with a sense of urgency and being sure we keep pandemic preparation as a priority."

Security fears as flu virus that killed 50 million is recreated
"Scientists have recreated the 1918 Spanish flu virus, one of the deadliest ever to emerge, to the alarm of many researchers ... Undisclosed quantities of the virus are being held in a high-security government laboratory in Atlanta, Georgia, after a nine-year effort to rebuild the agent ... a team lead by Dr Jeffery Taubenberger at the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology in Maryland shows that the recreated virus is extremely effective..."

'Scientists' Continue Dangerous Virus Experimentations
"Using a new method to test potential pandemic flu strains, scientists have created a virus that contains genes from human and bird flus and found it lacks what it takes to cause a pandemic .... The experiments were risky in that 'the possibility was there' that a highly transmissible pandemic strain might have been created in the lab."

Flock Killing Planned if Bird Flu Found
"Free-ranging chickens and small, backyard flocks will be at greatest risk if deadly bird flu reaches the United States, officials said Wednesday. They also said they would begin killing off flocks large or small if they are suspected of having the virus - even before tests are completed."

Climate Change Drives Disease to New Territory
From our WEATHER section
"Global warming -- with an accompanying rise in floods and droughts -- is fueling the spread of epidemics in areas unprepared for the diseases, say many health experts worldwide. Mosquitoes, ticks, mice and other carriers are surviving warmer winters and expanding their range, bringing health threats with them."
