WHO Knew? EU Parliament to Investigate “Swine Flu Swindle”

WHO Knew?

Research Credit:  Global Research.

The European Union Parliament will open an investigation into the influence of pharmaceutical companies on decision makers, particularly the World Health Organization (WHO).

Full translation from this source:

The Council of Europe member states will launch an inquiry in January 2010 on the influence of the pharmaceutical companies on the global swine flu campaign, focusing especially on extent of the pharma‘s industry’s influence on WHO. The Health Committee of the EU Parliament has unanimously passed a resolution calling for the inquiry. The step is a long-overdue move to public transparency of a “Golden Triangle” of drug corruption between WHO, the pharma industry and academic scientists that has permanently damaged the lives of millions and even caused death.

The parliament motion was introduced by Dr. Wolfgang Wodarg, former SPD Member of the German Bundestag and now chairman of the Health Committee of PACE (Parliamentary Assembly of the Council  of Europe). Wodarg is a medical doctor and epidemiologist, a specialist in lung disease and environmental medicine, who considers the current “pandemic” Swine Flu campaign of the WHO to be “one of the greatest medicine scandals of the Century.”[1]

The text of the resolution just passed by a sufficient number in the Council of Europe Parliament says among other things, “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. The “bird-flu”-campaign (2005/06) combined with the “swine-flu”-campaign seem to have caused a great deal of damage not only to some vaccinated patients and to public health-budgets, but to the credibility and accountability of important international health-agencies.”[2]

The Parliamentary inquiry will look into the issue of „falsified pandemic“ that was declared by WHO in June 2009 on the advice of its group of academic experts, SAGE, many of whose members have been documented to have intense financial ties to the same pharmaceutical giants such as GlaxoSmithKline, Roche, Novartis, who benefit from the production of drugs and untested H1N1 vaccines. They will investigate the influence of the pharma industry in creation of a worldwide campaign against the so-called H5N1 “Avian Flu”  and H1N1 Swine Flu. The inquiry will be given “urgent” priority in the general assembly of the parliament.

In his official statement to the Committee, Wodarg criticized the influence of the pharma industry on scientists and officials of WHO, stating that it has led to the 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.

Wodarg says the role of the WHO and its the pandemic emergency declaration in June needs to be the special focus of the European Parliamentary inquiry. For the first time, the WHO criteria for a pandemic was changed in April 2009 as the first Mexico cases were reported, to make not the actual risk of a disease but the number of cases of the disease basis to declare “Pandemic.” By classifying the swine flu as pandemic, nations were compelled to implement pandemic plans and also the purchase swine flu vaccines. Because WHO is not subject to any parliamentary control, Wodarg argues it is necessary for governments to insist on accountability. The inquiry will also to look at the role of the two critical agencies in Germany issuing guidelines on the pandemic, the Paul-Ehrlich and the Robert-Koch Institute.

Don’t Shoot Me: Boy Suffers From Rare Disease After H1N1 Shot

Posted on by 0 comment

This story from MSNBC captures the essence of why I’m OK with letting other people get their shot at my expense.

As I read about how a young boy lost most of his muscle control after getting the H1N1 vaccination, this quote struck me:

Since the start of the H1N1 vaccine campaign, the CDC has repeatedly warned that certain conditions, such as miscarriage, heart attack and even GBS occur regardless of immunization, and officials have urged the public not to blame the vaccine for the illnesses, but to report promptly any suspected side effects.

And of the reported 4,000 plus people that have died from H1N1 (without any indication of time period), some of those people actually had H1N1.

Meanwhile, in Canada, I read a report that the original estimated cost per vaccination was $16.  Very reasonable, I suppose.

However, now that the media has done a sufficient job of whipping the public into a frenzy, that price has nearly doubled to $30.

When the Conservative government promised Canada that all Canadians would have access to the vaccine, did they not think to book the original price in a contract?  What kind of business people are these folks?

And what picture does that paint of the supplier?  Should this 100% increase in price (with no limit in place) be considered extortion?

It’s a good thing Canadians have bottomless pockets.

H1N1 Swine Flu: 2009’s Y2K

Posted on by 1 comment

I am exhausted with media hyperbole (and insanity) surrounding the Swine Flu or H1N1, as the pork industry would have us call it.

The hug is dead.  People no longer kiss (at least in public).  People that cough in public do so at the risk of being burned faster than Salem witches (or at least being kicked off buses).

In fact, I’m going out on a limb here, but I’m going to predict that Swine Flu is 2009’s Y2K.

As we all may remember a decade ago, we all heard about Y2K for months on end to the point where there was an obscene level of panic that swirled around the famous ‘resetting’ of clocks that would occur as we entered the new millennium, and what happened?

Jack shit.

Life went on.

Yes, there were probably a few glitches, but subways didn’t come to halting stops between stations.  Planes didn’t drop from the sky.  Computers didn’t eat up all of the world’s knowledge as they reverted back to the knowledge base of the BEGINNING OF TIME.  Professional programmers saved the day, assuming they had to.  Common sense also finally kicked in (maybe).

We’ll see the same thing with any flu (pneumonia, cold or other viral disease) that runs through our social fabric over the next few weeks and months:  professionals will treat the sick, send them home, let them recover and all should be well.  This would have happened, swine flu or not.

Now … I don’t want to appear insensitive to those families who have received their body bags and who will likely suffer disproportionately from this or other flu viruses simply because our government won’t arrange for running water.  I think you know who I’m talking about.

And I definitely don’t want to show callousnous towards people and their families who have actually been affected by deaths as a result of ‘swine flu-like symptoms’.  However, every single time a story comes up on the radio or ‘net (I don’t watch TV) about spreading disease or concerned hosts ask listeners if they should stay at home from work if they’re coughing, I don’t just tune it out.  I shut it off.

I’m done.  I’m going to live my life obliviously ignorant of the ‘pandemic’ that I predict will not happen, either because it’s an over-inflated issue designed to sell Tamiflu or other untested vaccinations or because our professional, public medical community actually have things under control.
