Mexican swine flu outbreak a man-made pandemic?

by redpill8
A company that delivered contaminated vaccines with live avian flu and human flu viruses earlier this year is now to lead the charge for designing vaccines for the Mexican Swine Flu outbreak.
According the Chicago Breaking News Center Baxter International, Inc. will take a leading role in creating a vaccine for the latest outbreak:
"Deerfield-based medical product giant Baxter International Inc. is working with the World Health Organization on a potential vaccine to curb the spread of the swine flu outbreak in Mexico, the company confirmed today. Baxter, which has a growing vaccine business, has worked with foreign countries in the past to develop vaccines for the H5N1 virus commonly known as bird flu. Baxter has a cell-based technology that allows the company to more rapidly produce vaccines in the event of a pandemic than a decades-old method that uses eggs to process vaccines and can take weeks or even months longer." See "Baxter to work to contain Mexico flu outbreak"
This is a significant development due to the fact that the Baxter International, Inc., is still being investigated by the World Health Organization and the European Center for Disease Control as to why, and how, they mixed live avian flu (H5H1) viruses with a human flu (H3N2) viruses, which, had they been administered, could have set of a global pandemic earlier this year. According to authorities, this contamination could not have been a mistake due to industry and government enforced lab safety protocols designed to prevent such contamination. For instance, Baxter International adheres to something called BSL3 (Biosafety Level 3) lab safety protocols that put in place to prevent cross-contamination of materials. As explained on Wikipedia:
“Laboratory personnel have specific training in handling pathogenic and potentially lethal agents, and are supervised by competent scientists who are experienced in working with these agents. This is considered a neutral or warm zone. All procedures involving the manipulation of infectious materials are conducted within biological safety cabinets or other physical containment devices, or by personnel wearing appropriate personal protective clothing and equipment. The laboratory has special engineering and design features.”
If Baxter were following BSL3 procedures this contamination could only be explained through 1: either gross negligence or 2: willful contamination. So, why would a company that was caught recently distributing live avian and human flu vaccines, perhaps with the intent to stage a global flu pandemic, be allowed to develop a vaccine for the World Health Organization to combat the new swine flu outbreak? This defies logic and a good explanation... that is, unless logic and explanation is a bad one. For instance, we might want to contemplate that a man-made epidemic could be a useful tool to create the conditions for greater control over society by creating the appearance that a government is protecting citizens, while at the same time asking citizens to give up much of their freedoms and liberties. Also, there is the added benefit that one can make enormous profits if one has the cure. Should we immediately dismiss such unpalatable notions when in our recent history we have seen people in high places in government and industry using fear to profit from such scenarios? As Joseph Mercola writes:
"Not long ago, President Bush sought to instill panic in this country by telling us a minimum of 200,000 people will die from the avian flu pandemic, but it could be as bad as 2 million deaths in this country alone. This hoax is then used to justify the immediate purchase of 80 million doses of Tamiflu, a worthless drug that in no way shape or form treats the avian flu, but only decreases the amount of days one is sick and can actually contribute to the virus having more lethal mutations. So the U.S. placed an order for 20 million doses of this worthless drug at a price of $100 per dose. That comes to a staggering $2 billion. We are being told that Roche manufactures Tamiflu and, in a recent New York Times article, they were battling whether or not they would allow generic drug companies to help increase their production. But if you dig further you will find that a drug was actually developed by a company called Gilead that 10 years ago gave Roche the exclusive rights to market and sell Tamiflu... ...If you read the link below from Gilead, you'll discover Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld was made the chairman of Gilead in 1997. Since Rumsfeld holds major portions of stock in Gilead, he will handsomely profit from the scare tactics of the government that is being used to justify the purchase of $2 billion of Tamiflu."
Rumsfeld and the Bush administration also tried to scare the population into buying and stockpiling Vistide, a vaccine to combat a disease that is virtually extinct, that is, except in labs -- smallpox. F. William Engdahl writes in the article "Tamiflu, Vistide and the Pentagon Agenda":
"The scare around smallpox and what to do was curiously similar then as it is today against Bird Flu pandemics. Defense Secretary Rumsfeld at that time ordered members of the Armed Forces to be inoculated against smallpox, an inoculation with horrendous side-effects. Rumsfeld’s smallpox package also included ordering Pentagon stockpiling of a drug named Vistide, supposedly to minimize side-effects of smallpox infection should it occur. The Bush Administration had made repeated attempts to convince the public and above all, the health and medical profession to go with mass inoculation against smallpox. In 2002 the CDC and certain high Administration officials were calling for pre-emptive smallpox inoculation of broad sectors of the population against threat of terrorists unleashing the pox. The Government began stockpiling hundreds of millions of smallpox vaccine doses."
As we know, fear sells — sells policy; sells products; sells freedoms. It even sells movies. The script from V for Vendetta sums up the motivations of a fascist elite:
"The socially-conservative and openly fascist Norsefire party led a purge to restore order; enemies of the state (Muslims, Jews, blacks, homosexuals, communists) were kidnapped by the secret police during the night. The country was divided over the loss of freedom until a bioterrorist attack occurred, killing about 80,000 people. The fear generated by the attack allowed Norsefire to silence opposition and win the next election by a landslide. A cure for the virus was discovered soon afterwards by the Norsefire company, Viadoxin. With the silent consent of the people, Norsefire turned Britain totalitarian, with their leader Adam Sutler as High Chancellor. The virus had been engineered by Norsefire as a plot to gain power, through deadly experimentation on "social deviants" and political dissidents at Larkhill detention center. V had been one of the prisoners, but instead of being killed by the experiments, he had gained heightened mental and physical abilities. V eventually destroyed the center and escaped, vowing to take revenge on Norsefire's regime." — V for Vendetta Movie Description
Are we beginning to see another example of truth mimicking fiction? (It has been reported by various news organizations that military flights have increased dramatically during the month of April at San José's Mineta Airport, right before first reports of the swine flu outbreak. According to KLIV 1590 "Charter flights from the U.S. military will be taking off and landing at Mineta San Jose International Airport during the next few weeks -- but it's all very mysterious. Airport spokesman David Vossbrink says the military is not providing any details about the flights, but there will be a significant number of them."

you make some good points in this article, but it fails to escape conspiracy theory.

Of course it's a conspiracy theory, but that doesn't necessarily mean it is untrue. What we know for certain is that Baxter International, Inc., either accidentally, or intentionally, mixed in two live viruses that had the potential to cause pandemic, and if it were not for a lab technician who tested these vaccines on ferrets (which died) this deadly plague could have infected millions who took the vaccine. Why on earth would we allow this company to handle the creation of a vaccine for swine flu that might be distributed to millions, especially since the last case is still under investigation?

Keep digging, redpill8. There may be some false alarms here, but on the other hand, it fits a general profile of what's going down these days - a number of puzzle pieces adding up to population control (or worse) by the PTB. And I hope somebody alerts the public to the fact that there is a decided downside to Tamiflu - that this is not just an innocent, fluffy antiviral. As for Relenza, I remember that the early reports on it were that it didn't do much but cut flu symptoms by maybe a day. Large doses of vitamin C could do that.

The Huffington Post has a great article detailing why factory farms are possible breeding grounds for viruses.

It's not a conspiracy theory to believe that all of us have been conditioned by the media
outlets to think a certain way. That's how selling something works, whether it's an idea or
a product. It's a fact that since the 40's viruses have been made in labs all in the name
of national defense, and used on the public, whether volunteer or hapless victim. Now, it's
up to each of us to decide if the idea of a New World Order is taking shape right now. And
if you believe there are wealthy, powerful, and ruthless people willing to kill 50-80 million
people in order to maintain control, then you have to believe this Hybrid flu that is hitting
the world right now, is just the dry run.
