We honestly don’t believe the various institutions that are calling the H1N1 virus a pandemic. We believe that this is one of many of the Swine-In-Chief’s gambits to get health care deformation rammed down our throats. This page will track the progression of the virus from various news articles we consider relevant.
We will not merely be focusing on the main headlines. We are going to be looking at the “implicative headlines” – the things that ought to be present if there existed a clear and present emergency. For example, if there was a biological attack, we’d expect to see first responders in hazmat suits with other biological protections. So we find it jarring that when a few of us go to the local medical clinics, doctors are perfectly willing to shake our hands, do not come out with masks on, etc. We see people sneezing the old fashioned way – not the stupid way that Ms. Sebelius tells us to do it. We hear about all kinds of bad things happening, and we hear that they are attributable to swine flu. Yet we see no personal evidence of it. We see no evidence of it anywhere that we look.
We see evidence of it ONLY in the hallucinations that pass for thoughts in the Federal Government and the various World Health Organizations that seem to just lo-o-ove The One. We are so sick of this adulation. We’d almost rather have the swine flu so we could pay attention to things other than this Messiah and his unbelievably unbelievable efforts. Today we will look at a few of the local reports of various news outlets:
So – today (2009-10-23):
- Seattle Times – reported no huge instances of the swine flu in Seattle.
- Atlanta Constitution – no reports of big swine flu outbreaks in their local news coverage.
- KTLA TV in Los Angeles – there is a report about California hospitals changing their visitor policies because of swine flu fears. But we see no reports of a massive rise in swine flu cases.
We note this, not because we want the swine flu to appear in a big way. We note it because the CDC is saying that it already has! But where is the evidence of this? We don’t see anything that comes even remotely close to 20% of all kids being infected with the flu, let alone the swine flu. Note: we have not been able to independently verify Breitbart’s report. While we have come to trust Breitbart, it is important to acknowledge that we haven’t seen the CDC report on this.
We do note another interesting, apparent contradiction: The Washington State Department of Health has removed mercury usage restrictions in the Swine-in-Chief’s flu vaccine. They say this: “While some people are concerned about the safety of thimerosal, many large, thorough studies have shown no harm caused by thimerosal in vaccines.” Thimerosal contains the mercury.
But we went to Wikipedia’s entry on thimerosal and found this: “Few studies of the toxicity of thiomersal in humans have been performed. Animal experiments suggest that thiomersal rapidly dissociates to release ethylmercury after injection; that the disposition patterns of mercury are similar to those after exposure to equivalent doses of ethylmercury chloride; and that the central nervous system and the kidneys are targets, with lack of motor coordination being a common sign. Similar signs and symptoms have been observed in accidental human poisonings.”
So which is the truth? Who has an ax to grind and who doesn’t? We also note this brief discussion on thimerosal by the NIH. The NIH indicates that the use of thimerosal is not all that wonderful and that the trend is to move away from it as much as possible.
We are not doctors; not toxicologists. We don’t know the truth from a medical perspective. We only know the politics that we see and that we dislike. We see a disease that seems to have no extensive run of victims being called a pandemic. We see a mad rush to have vaccine where there is not a tremendous incidence of illness. We see no reports of huge district wide school closures; no cancellations of sporting events at major stadiums. We see no one telling us to avoid traveling with others in elevators, closed systems like buses, or airplanes. All we see are huge amounts of government talk and blather by an administration, that by its own admission, tries to control the communication.
We don’t trust the Swine-in-Chief. We don’t trust virtually anything the Swine-in-Chief touches. You’ve heard of a green thumb? We believe Obama has a socialist/communist thumb. Everything he touches turns to crap.
We’re not saying that H1N1 is not a threat. We don’t know. We’re just saying we have questions; we don’t trust the sources of information we would normally trust – that we would love to trust again. We blame this 100% on Obama. This is his doing. And we are angry like you cannot imagine.
We’ll be reporting on this page regularly.
