SWINE FLU: PIG IN A POKE
By Jon Rappoport
April 27, 2009.
Everybody wants to jump on a bandwagon when “a new disease” comes along. There are many possible bandwagons: THIS COULD BE THE MOTHER ALL PANDEMICS. THE MEDICAL AUTHORITIES KNOW EXACTLY WHAT THEY’RE DOING, AND WE MUST FOLLOW THEIR DIRECTIONS. REMAIN CALM. DON’T TRAVEL TO MEXICO. IT’S A TERRORIST ATTACK. IT’S THE PRELUDE TO A TERRORIST ATTACK. A GERM FROM A BIO-WARFARE FACILITY. QUARANTINE YOUR CHILDREN. ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION IS THE CAUSE OF IT ALL. A PIG DID IT. A BIRD DID IT. “THEY” PUT THE SWINE FLU GERM INTO A VACCINE. THIS IS GOD TAKING REVENGE FOR PEOPLE EATING PORK. THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU LET PEOPLE TRAVEL ALL OVER THE WORLD. GROUND ALL PLANES. THIS IS MOTHER NATURE STRIKING BACK AT TECHNOLOGY. NOSTRADAMUS PREDICTED THIS.
I could go on. As some of you know, I've been through
these “pandemics” before. I've analyzed the medical
reasoning from a number of different perspectives. I've
pointed out the gaping holes in the official media-driven scenarios.
I no longer have the interest in unearthing every single mistake and stupidity and prejudice and lie. But I will cover the main issues one more time.
First of all, people die all the time all over the world. That some of them exhibit what could be called common flu symptoms DOES NOT mean we have a new disease. People dying in Mexico is something that happens every day of every year. On any given day, I could collect reports of sickness and death in Mexico (with flu symptoms) and bundle them up and claim they're evidence of something new and sinister, and I would be wrong.
Second, you have to examine HOW the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) are TESTING TO FIND THIS SWINE FLU ILLNESS. On what basis are they saying there IS a new human disease? On what basis are they saying people have this new disease? Is the test any good?
You would think lots of reporters are looking into this, but you would be
wrong. If I say the sky is falling, people would ask me for evidence. I should
be able to present that evidence. If I can't, or if my
evidence is flimsy and shoddy, then that's the end of
In the case of Swine Flu or any so-called new disease, the evidence IS THE TEST. So let's look at it. The test is done with a swab from the throat or nose. That material is then analyzed with very sophisticated methods. The centerpiece of the method is the PCR. It is a test in which VERY tiny bits of genetic substance are amplified, blown up tremendously, in order to be able to see what is there. What IS there? Fragments of a pig virus? Fragments of a bird virus? Fragments of more common human flu viruses? That's what the CDC and WHO are telling us. All of the above.
Does this mean all these blown-up fragments are part of a SINGLE VIRUS, A COMPLETE VIRUS? Does this mean these fragments are all locked together?
The test result is more like this: WE LOOKED THROUGH THE GARBAGE BIN AND WE CAME UP WITH ALL SORTS OF PIECES OF STUFF. AND WE BELIEVE WE CAN INFER WHAT THESE PIECES ONCE BELONGED TO. BUT EVEN IF WE CAN, WE CAN'T SAY THE PIECES WERE ONCE ALL PART OF A SINGLE THING. TO SAY YOU HAVE A SINGLE THING, YOU MUST BE ABLE TO FIND THAT SINGLE THING.
In the case of what the CDC is calling Human Swine Flu, THEY MUST BE ABLE TO PRODUCE, FOR INSPECTION AND CONFIRMATION, the whole virus. The whole thing. The one thing. The Swine-Bird-Human combo virus, in pristine form, taken from the swab of a human patient. Where is it? Who has it?
How many independent labs have confirmed that's
what it is? I see NO evidence. And that's just the
beginning of the trouble.
Because, even if researchers could produce that pristine combo virus in complete structure and form, taken from the body of a human patient, they are not saying there are HUGE NUMBERS OF THESE VIRUSES in a given patient's body. And guess what? In order to claim a person has a disease, you have to ID GIGANTIC NUMBERS OF A GIVEN GERM AT WORK IN THE BODY, DOING THEIR BUSINESS. Otherwise, you have NOTHING. As in: NOTHING. One or two copies of germs of a particular type aren't going to affect the body.
In fact, whenever you hear about the PCR test being used in this way, it's usually a giveaway, a major clue. They're using this test, which blows up and amplifies tiny, tiny, tiny, tiny amounts of material, to the point where they can see something, BECAUSE THEY CAN'T ACTUALLY FIND WHOLE GERMS. THEY CAN'T.
Now, if you take what I've stated in this article,
and do a little thinking of your own, you'll form your
own ideas of what is really happening and not happening in this new “horrible
And by the way, what happened to that other pandemic that was going to spread around the world and decimate populations a few years back. Remember? Planes grounded? Cities declared off bounds for tourists?
SARS? Remember? The sky fell and the world is still here.
