Bird Flu Epidemic is a Hoax
A draft of the government's plan to combat a potential super-flu estimates a death toll of up to almost 2 million Americans. The plan is being rewritten to designate who will run the country during a possibly chaotic period that could follow a mutation of a bird flu in Asia. The draft is based on the last century's three pandemics, and states that in the best-case scenario, about 200,000 people could die.
The government currently has enough of the anti-flu drug Tamiflu to treat 4.3 million people, and $100 million worth of bird flu vaccine is being manufactured. The draft indicates that tens of millions more doses of each would be necessary, far more than can be manufactured quickly
USA Today October 8, 2005
But I nearly fell out of my seat in the airplane as I was flying back from a conference in Ft. Lauderdale when I read that in the BEST-case scenario, only 200,000 people might die.
Then they post the frightening picture from the 1918 flu epidemic to heighten the fear. It just amazes me how they can get away with this type of reporting that is so obviously manipulated by the government and drug companies to scare you into taking the flu vaccine.
The popular media continues to reinforce this unbased fear. In the editorial section of the October 17, 2005 issue of the Wall Street Journal, Dr. Henry Miller, former director of the Office of Biotechnology at the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), seeks to frighten the U.S. public by telling us that the bird flu virus can jump from birds to humans and produce, and is a fatal illness in 50 percent of those infected.
Ah, there's the rub.
A 50 percent fatality rate sounds pretty scary to me. What Dr. Miller and the other experts fail to explain is how these numbers were derived. Did they examine everyone who contracted the bird flu and use those numbers, or did they examine the sickest of the sick who had come down with the bird flu and determine the mortality rate from there?
Of course, it was the latter, and from the 60 people who have died from this in THIRD-world countries we are being told that anywhere from 200,000, AT BEST, to 2 million people at worst will die from the bird flu.
This is shoddy science at best and beyond belief that any reputable scientist could get away with such nonsense.
Daily Show Parody
The bird flu epidemic hoax reminds me just how uncommon "common sense" is. Folks, where is the sound basic science here? How do they make the giant leap of faith that 60 deaths will translate to 2 million or even 200,00 deaths in the United States from a virus that does NOT readily spread from birds to humans, or humans to humans?
Most of the people who acquired this infection were bird handlers who were in continuous contact with these sick birds. Does anyone in their right mind envision similar circumstances in the United States?
Research like this would typically be thrown in the trash if it did not strongly support some ulterior purpose.
What might the purpose of these scare tactics be you ask?
Well how about the United States purchasing huge quantities of antiviral drugs and an increase in flu vaccine production, along with purchasing 20 million doses of the highly questionably effective Tamiflu. Guess how much one treatment of Tamiflu costs? Give yourself a slap on the back if you guessed $100.
So those 20 million doses the government has authorized will cost U.S. taxpayers $2 BILLION.
If you haven't yet read the lead story about Donald Rumsfeld in this issue. please do as you will where a significant portion of those funds are being directed to.
Now I think very few of us would mind if this drug actually worked and prevented even a few people from dying. But does it do that? Not really. About all anyone can expect from this drug is that it might make the symptoms a bit less severe. On the downside, (aside from setting you back $100) Dr. Tenpenny explained in her Flu TeleClinic last week that Tamiflu can actually cause the virus to mutate into a more dangerous and potent viral strain.
Recently, U.S. Congress asked Roche, the maker of Tamiflu, to suspend its patent and have others make it because they could not likely keep up with the demand, but of course Roche refused saying Tamiflu is hard to make and it would take another company three years to "get up to speed."
What they were really saying is they could care less about the public. What their primary focus was on was to not share their windfall profits mandated by the U.S. Congress.
Worthless Flu Shots
Of course, let us not forget the flu shots that many will get when they confuse bird flu with the regular flu. Please understand, even if you believe the flu shots work, the flu shot you can now purchase is in no way, shape or form designed to protect you against the bird flu. They are completely different strains. (Bird flu is H5N1 strain).
But rest assured the makers of flu vaccines will not lose this unusal opportunity to rape the American public for even more profits. Recently we learned that those getting the flu shots may see a 25 percent increase in prices at clinics, doctors' offices and medical centers because of increases in the wholesale cost of the vaccines.
History Repeats Itself
Investigative journalist Ida Honorof for decades published a consumer newsletter and broadcast a regular radio program. Honorof received a first prize award from Associated Press for investigative journalism. The Los Angeles Times and other publications credited her with breaking some of the biggest horror stories of our time.
Ida Honorof wrote, "The most brazen, obscene electioneering ploy" ever and added that it was proposed by the President "and his coterie of scientific hacks, fabricated to cause pure unadulterated panic and guarantee political capital, rammed through without consideration of people's health and lives and approved by a band-wagon Congress" eager to make the nation's "health" a bipartisan concern.
The above quote was not written about the bird flu epidemic but the 5 million swine-flu vaccine program of 30 years ago. The hastily contrived program for swine flu resulted in hundreds of Guillain Barre Syndrome paralysis victims as well as countless deaths for a flu pandemic that never materialized.
The pocketbook purloining proposed by the Senate is more than 3,000 percent greater than that of 30 years ago! Has your paycheck increased 3,000 percent in the last 30 years?
First step for anyone caught up in this bird flu hype nonsense is to take a deep breath and relax and realize the truth here. Unless you are a full-time bird handler in a third-world country who has a seriously challenged immune system you probably have a much better chance of wining the lottery than dying from the proposed bird flu epidemic.
Review the simple lifestyle measures I outlined earlier this year that will serve to boost your immune system to not only address any form of the flu but also other infectious illness like the cold. When you have a healthy lifestyle and follow basic steps of the Total Health Program, for the most part you just don't get sick.
This is the routine surprised comment that most patients tell me after they have been on the program. The Total Health Program works for me, most of my patients and can work for you. Just give it a try and let's stop enriching the drug companies for toxic alternatives that don't solve the problem.

What You Can Do
Meanwhile, the "Biodefense and Pandemic Vaccine and Drug Development Act of 2005" (S. 1873), recently passed out of the U.S. Senate HELP Committee one day after it was introduced. The National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) is calling the bill "a drug company stockholder's dream and a consumer's worst nightmare." This bill, spurred by bird flu fears, will broadly eliminate corporate liability for vaccines and drugs. This bill will soon go to the full Senate for a vote.
After reading the information below, please write to your own Senator and your own member of Congress in protest of this bill. Pass this alert to your family, friends, and other organizations you are involved with, and go to the NVIC website to take action right now.
The proposed legislation, nicknamed "Bioshield Two," is being pushed rapidly through Congress without time for voters to make their voices heard by their elected representatives. It will strip Americans of the right to a trial by jury if they are harmed by a drug or vaccine that they are forced by government to take, whenever federal health officials declare a public health emergency.
The bill establishes the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Agency (BARDA), as the single point of authority within the government for research and development of drugs and vaccines in response to bioterrorism and natural disease outbreaks. BARDA will operate in secret, exempt from the Freedom of Information Act and the Federal Advisory Committee Act, insuring that no evidence of injuries or deaths caused by drugs and vaccines labeled as "countermeasures" will become public.
This proposed legislation is an unconstitutional attempt by some in Congress to give a taxpayer-funded handout to pharmaceutical companies for drugs and vaccines the government can force all citizens to use, while absolving everyone connected from any responsibility for injuries and deaths which occur.

Flu Vaccine Now Officially Documented as Failure CDC: Flu Season Has Declined S 1873- ELIMINATES LIABILITY FOR VACCINE INJURIES Feds Partner With Private Industry VACCINE, NOT FLU CAUSED 1918 EPIDEMIC!
So, the Sorcery of Rome now being practiced by the American Medical Association (AMA) is being utilized to bilk people out of billions of dollars, and at the same time kill some of them off while never being held accountable of any crime whatsoever?!
By the way... do you know what the ingerediants of a flu vaccine are?
(source of above list = http://www.mercola.com/2000/nov/26/flu_shots.htm# ) For a complete list of diseases brought on by flu vaccines, click here )
That's right! If you don't get sick of the flu and grant the AMA even more money, you will be sick in the future after placing all these toxins in your bloodstream. In either event, it's a win win situation for those so called "doctors of medicine." At $100.00 a pop for 20 million doses they can afford to take the chance it may kill you! So.. how do you avoid the flu? The only way is to live as the Bible says to live. This includes your diet and exercise.
Nonbelievers Too Can Be Saved, Says Pope
Refers to St. Augustine's Commentary on Psalm 136(137)
VATICAN CITY, NOV. 30, 2005 (Zenit.org).- Whoever seeks peace and the good of the community with a pure conscience, and keeps alive the desire for the transcendent, will be saved even if he lacks biblical faith, says Benedict XVI.
The Pope made this affirmation today at the general audience, commenting on a meditation written by St. Augustine (354-430).
On a rainy morning in Rome, the Holy Father's meditation, addressed to more than 23,000 people gathered in St. Peter's Square, concentrated on the suffering of the Jewish people in the Babylonian exile, expressed dramatically in Psalm 136(137).
The Pontiff referred to Augustine's commentary on this composition of the Jewish people, noting that this "Father of the Church introduces a surprising element of great timeliness."
Augustine "knows that also among the inhabitants of Babylon there are people who are committed to peace and the good of the community, despite the fact that they do not share the biblical faith, that they do not know the hope of the Eternal City to which we aspire," Benedict XVI stated.
"They have a spark of desire for the unknown, for the greatest, for the transcendent, for a genuine redemption," explained the Pope, quoting Augustine.
"And he says that among the persecutors, among the nonbelievers, there are people with this spark, with a kind of faith, of hope, in the measure that is possible for them in the circumstances in which they live," the Holy Father continued.
"With this faith in an unknown reality, they are really on the way to the authentic Jerusalem, to Christ," he clarified.
Continuing with his quotes from Augustine, the Pope added that "God will not allow them to perish with Babylon, having predestined them to be citizens of Jerusalem, on the condition, however, that, living in Babylon, they do not seek pride, outdated pomp and arrogance."
The Bishop of Rome concluded by inviting those present to pray to the Lord "that he will awaken in all of us this desire, this openness to God, and that those who do not know God may also be touched by his love, so that all of us journey together toward the definitive City and that the light of this City might also shine in our time and in our world."

It's bad enough that this Pope is echoing the words of his predecessor when saying you don't need Jesus as Saviour to gain Heaven. He is now proclaiming our God in Heaven one that is more concerned with the "community" of man then His truth. As many know, Ratzinger (Pope Benedict IVI) has admitted to being a Nazi soldier. Does his present day theology reflect his Nazi upbringing? You tell me…
Ratzinger’s terminology defined...
Communism is evil no matter how much the New World Order pushers says otherwise. It is the ultimate community over the individual. What’s good for the community is what rules the person. If you as a person upset the order, it is better for you to die then the whole community to suffer loss. Now read the following quote from quite a few years ago that were in fact uttered by the proverbial "father' of this mindset.
Sounds like and echo of John 11:50 where it says...
Their main excuse to kill our Lord was that He should die so that the NATION as a whole wouldn’t perish. That is the ultimate communistic ideal! This is exactly what both Ratzigner and this quote are saying.
Now.. Before sharing who the author is of these statements in Piekoff’s book that are a direct echo of Ratzinger’s communist “Liberation theology.” Who do you think it is that made these remarks? John F Kennedy? Abraham Lincoln? Ronald Reagan perhaps? Finishing the excerpt it says this…
It’s no mistake people. John Paul II was elected at an EARLY age so as to be able to gather almost all the nations to Rome’s side in one Pontificate. That is why he was elected at age 57 instead of 77 like most popes. Thanks to John Paul II’s tireless efforts of gathering all countries to Rome’s camp, as of January 10, 2005 the Vatican now has 174 of the 192 countries in 100% agreement with Rome’s agenda. And now they have “God’s enforcer” or “God’s rottweiler” standing as pope so as to move to the next step.
Think on it this way. When the "Liberation Theology" of Ratzinger comes to fruition. The "individual" will become non-existent and worthy of extermination. The "community" will then become the voice of the people. That way, the majority of the world, which are already in Satan's control, will become the voice of the people. When the small Remnant of God refuse to break God's Law, their actions are looked upon as a PROBLEM for the "community" at large. Then you will see the Remnant being killed so that the "world" doesn't perish! They will ultimately mimic the Pharisidical desire of old when they thought it best that Christ should die so that the "community" wouldn't perish.
