79 People Reportedly Lose Sense of Taste and Smell After H1N1 "Swine Flu" Injection in Norway!

More vaccine side effects (reportedly)!

I cannot verify this story about 79 people losing their sense of taste and smell in Norway after getting the vaccine, so put this story in the "could be false, but probably not" category. I used the Google translator, so it could be erroneously translating the original source article.

79 have lost ability to taste or smell after vaccine in Norway.

Silje Marie Våtvik lost both taste and smell after taking the vaccine against swine flu. She has been sick for several weeks.

- People do not understand what it means to have taste and odor. I do not taste the food and can therefore not to swallow it. It inhibits me also in social life, because I can not be with the dinners, "says Silje Marie Våtvik (30).

Formosa Offers Cabbage and Other Bribes to Get 500,000 People to Take H1N1 "Swine Flu" Vaccine

Some countries will do anything to persuade people to get the H1N1 "swine flu" vaccine. Case in point, the island of Formosa or as it is commonly known, Taiwan. The government has offered bribes to its citizens to get them to take the vaccine.

Taiwan [Formosa] launched an island-wide H1N1 vaccination campaign on Saturday, offering cabbages and other small gifts to induce people to take the shot.

More than half a million people took the vaccination shot on Saturday at 2,573 places designated by the Department of Health.

Many people do not want to take the vaccine, because they are scared of the vaccine's reported bad side effects. I do not blame them for not wanting to take it.

Some Taiwanese are reluctant to take the shot, fearing the vaccine is not safe.

Nearly 1,000 World Government and Global Tax Supporters Detained for Protesting at Copenhagen Climate Summit

I do not support the detention of these supporters at the Copenhagen climate summit, but I also do not support the positions' of the people who were detained. The protesters are in support of a climate bill that will likely usher in some global governance structure where everyone in the world will be required to pay a global tax to an international bank or financial entity that will do nothing to reduce the pollution and irresponsible destruction of Mother Earth through the toxic dumping, genetic organism modification and water poisoning that is allowed for maximized profits.

Tens of thousands of protesters have marched through the chilly Danish capital and nearly 1,000 were detained in a mass rally to demand an ambitious global climate pact, just as talks hit a snag over rich nations' demands on and other emerging economies.

No one wants to pay a global tax and most people do not want a global governing body. Yet, these protesters' actions will likely lead to all of the above if their actions help sway the political actions of the Nation-States causing them to reach a binding agreement at Copenhagen.

Round 3, Fight! H1N1 "Swine Flu" Reportedly Could Become an Epidemic in January, 2010!

I have been meaning to write about this story I read yesterday, but I kept getting distracted. I am about to fall asleep as I type this blog entry, but I have to get my thoughts out, because it now appears that we will soon be seeing Round 3 of the Great Swine Flu Hype of 2009-2010!

Round 1 was in April-May, 2009 when swine flu first came onto the scene. Round 2 was September-November, 2009 when the government rolled out the vaccines on the unsuspecting public. According to the Sanford Herald, Round 3 is expected to begin in January when the H1N1 is expected to reach epidemic status! Where in the world is Secretary Kathleen Sebelius? I have not seen her lately, so she is probably scheming somewhere for this next round!

The third and potentially strongest wave of the H1N1 flu virus is expected in January and it could become an epidemic in Lee County, according to Howard Surface.

The people in Lee County, North Carolina are not buying the propaganda, because fewer and fewer people are showing up the H1N1 vaccinations around the country and world. Perhaps this site and the many other sites on the web providing information about the H1N1 vaccine have helped people in the decision-making process.

The health department currently has 1,500-1,700 doses, Surface said, and they’ve administered very few thus far this season, relative to the population of Lee County. He said he’s not sure why so few people have taken advantage of the free vaccine.

“I’m surprised,” he said, adding that, on a recent day, the health department only saw 100 people come for the flu shot. “We could’ve handled 1,000. ... It’s not a national emergency, but there’s not a lot of apprehension about it.”

If you continue reading the original article all the way to the end, you will see a couple of paragraphs discussing the H5N1 avian flu. There is really no reason to mention H5N1 in the article unless it is a scaremongering or foreshadowing! H5N1 is not relevant in the United States at this time, because it has not been found in this country.

Nevertheless, there are billboards telling people to prepare for the H5N1 avian flu in North Carolina (see above picture from Jones County, North Carolina) even though the flu has never hit North Carolina or anywhere else in America!

While the fear of avian flu, or H5N1, may arise, it’s unlikely that it will spread to the U.S., she added.

“H5N1 is still kind of isolated to poultry workers and hasn’t hit this country,” Panozzo said. “It’s not spreading person-to-person; it’s people handling poultry. The virus going around now figured out a way to spread person-to-person without that contact. H5N1 hasn’t figured that out yet.”

But if H1N1 and H5N1 did meet and mutate, Surface said it would make the country’s economic crisis “seem like a Sunday school picnic.”

There were some rumors a few months back that people were testing positive for both H1N1 "swine flu" and H5N1 "avian flu. Further, we hear that the H1N1 will indeed mutate.

Fort Detrick and U.S. Army To Make Pneumonic Plague Vaccine with Britain and Canada by 2015!

We are certainly hearing our fair share of pneumonic plague news in the last few days. There is the on-going story in Ukraine. There are pneumonic plague drills happening in Canada and in Illinois. The lungs of people who died in Iowa resembled the lungs of plague victims! Even a cat has tested positive for plague in California.

Now, the news comes out that there will be a plague vaccine by 2015 brought to you by Fort Detrick, the U.S. Army, Britain and Canada.

In 2000, the United States began working with Britain and Canada to share information about the plague vaccine. In 2005, the three countries agreed to pool their resources to create a vaccine to be mass-produced, though they were still considering working with the British formula. In the latest agreement, the three countries agreed to use USAMRIID's fusion protein as the basis of the vaccine...

Though the formula is unlikely to change, aside from tinkering to find the best human dosage, Worsham said it can only help to have three countries' scientists collaborating on vaccine production...

The Army hopes to have the vaccine approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration by 2015. Already completed early human clinical trials indicate the vaccine is safe and does provide immunity to the plague bacteria, called Yersinia pestis.


Iowa Girl Has Severe Tamiflu Reaction (Makes Her Act Like Kid in the Exorcist Movie)

Teenage Girl in London Critically Ill After Taking Donald Rumsfeld's Tamiflu (She May Have Stevens-Johnson Syndrome)

The H1N1 vaccines have crippled many people over the last few weeks, but it's just not limited to the vaccines. The antiviral drugs are also damaging people. Case in point, this London teenager who is now critically ill after taking the swine flu treatment Tamiflu and she may end up with the life threatening Stevens-Johnson syndrome.

Samantha Millard, 18, was told she had the virus after describing her symptoms to staff with no medical training.

She took just three pills before developing blisters all over her body, and was today in intensive care unable to breathe on her own.

She is being treated at a specialist burns unit at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital where doctors fear she may have the life-threatening Stevens-Johnson syndrome which causes the skin to peel off.

There is a before and after picture of Ms. Millard and it is quite scary. I wonder how much money Rumsfeld has made off of Tamiflu.

500 People Have Adverse Reactions to H1N1 "Swine Flu" Vaccine in Ireland!

Add these reactions in Ireland to the ever-growing list of vaccine side effects.

Almost 500 people have developed suspected adverse reactions from the swine flu vaccine, new figures show.

At least 300,000 doses of the vaccine have been administered to date, but no serious safety issues have yet been identified, according to the Irish Medicines Board (IMB).

The most frequent adverse reactions have been fever, nausea, headache and allergic effects. These reports are consistent with the expected pattern of adverse reactions for the vaccines, according to the board.

The Globalists Are Hypocrites! (Copenhagen Climate Change Summit Will Produce as Much Carbon Dioxide as Entire City of Pasadena, California)

Copenhagen is preparing for the climate change summit that will produce as much carbon dioxide as a town of approximately 150,000 people! This is hypocrisy at its finest! The globalists need the climate change treaty to pass in order to fund their global government through a carbon cap-and-trade taxing system. If these globalists truly cared about the environment, then they would not live so fancy and excessively while asking everyone else to sacrifice.

Copenhagen climate summit: 1,200 limos, 140 private planes and caviar wedges...

The airport says it is expecting up to 140 extra private jets during the peak period alone...

As well 15,000 delegates and officials, 5,000 journalists and 98 world leaders..the top hotels – all fully booked at £650 a night – are readying their Climate Convention menus of (no doubt sustainable) scallops, foie gras and sculpted caviar wedges...

According to the organisers, the eleven-day conference, including the participants' travel, will create a total of 41,000 tonnes of "carbon dioxide equivalent", equal to the amount produced over the same period by a city the size of Middlesbrough.

In case you are wondering where Pasadena comes from in the title. The original article sources the climate change summit's carbon production being equal to the same production from a city the size of Middlebrough which has a population of approximately 143,000 people. Pasadena has a similar population size.

Is the Government Lying about Health Care Rationing? (Picture of the Day - Case for Killing Ol' Granny)

When you hear the various elected representatives, talking heads and info babes on the television glow box lying to you day in and day out about how there will be no health care rationing when President Obama signs the health care bill, please remember this above picture that talking about the case for killing Granny on the cover of an American mainstream magazine Newsweek.

The magazine's editor is Jon Meacham who is reportedly a member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). Our Secretary of State Hillary Clinton admitted on video earlier this year that the CFR basically runs the show when it comes to matters involving interests of the United States of America. If Mr. Meacham allowed this cover to be printed, then it is likely in line with the CFR's position on the issue, and this ultimately becomes the government's position on the issue.

If the above analysis is correct, then it follows that if Newsweek says there is case for killing ol' Granny, then the CFR likely believes that there is a case for killing ol' Granny. Therefore, CFR will provide legislative and executive guidance to the government that makes the case for killing ol' Granny which will result in laws and executive orders that support health care rationing.

That is exactly what former Governor Sarah Palin said on her Facebook page that got her in hot water with the mainstream media.

The federal government currently runs the health care system for the American Indians and the system is terrible!

Therefore, do not believe the infobabe (insert your favorite one here) on the cable news when she tells you there is no rationing in the health care bill. When it is all said and done, the financial obligations of this bill will require that certain people receive and certain people do not receive when it comes to the health care services provided by this new insurance program.

It is quite likely that some bureaucrat or "death panel" will use financial costs and expenses to make the case for killing Granny.

Texas Provides Car-Side Seasonal Flu Vaccinations in a 'Shots to Go' Drive-Thru Program!

The government is certainly making it quite convenient to get vaccinations. In our McDonald's and Taco Bell drive-thru world, we can add seasonal flu inoculations to the list of things a person can now get from the comfort of his/her automobile.

Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi College of Nursing and Health Science students recently collaborated with the Corpus Christi/Nueces County Public Health Emergency Preparedness (PHP) Team as certified “vaccinators” for emergency clinics in September.

Because of the onset of the flu season and the emergence of the novel H1N1 virus, the City/County Health District conducted three major drive-through seasonal flu immunization clinics as part of the city- and county-wide readiness initiative for emergency and disaster preparedness.

This is one drive-thru that I will pass by without stopping!


Pneumonic Plague Found in Domesticated Cat in Kern County, California!


Contact Person:
Matt Constantine
Director of Public Health
(661) 868-0306

December 4, 2009


The Kern County Department of Public Health has confirmed a test result positive for Y. pestis, the bacteria that causes plague, conducted on a domesticated cat from Hart Flat, California. A test on another cat in the same household is pending. The Vector Control Section of the California Department of Health Services and the Kern County Environmental Health, which is now part of Public Health are collaborating to investigate these cases. There is no evidence of human infection at this time. Appropriate preventive steps including antibiotics have been recommended to protect those who may have been exposed to these cats. One of the symptomatic cats is responding well to antibiotics, but unfortunately, one of the cats has died.

“Plague is still very much present in our county, although we may want to believe that it is an obsolete disease of the past,” says Matt Constantine, Director of Public Health. “The most effective weapons in fighting this disease are public awareness, education, and preventative measures to reduce the risk for exposure.”

Plague, infection with the bacteria Y. pestis, is endemic throughout the southwest United States, including much of Kern County. Each year numerous mammals, including domestic cats, are identified with evidence of infection with Y. pestis.

Cats are believed to be the domestic species most susceptible to plague. As in humans, three clinical syndromes have been described: bubonic, septicemic, and pneumonic. Bubonic is the most common manifestation and is characterized by high fever (105-106 degrees F), lethargy, and swollen lymph glands, most commonly of the glands of the neck and under the jaw in cats but in the inguinal area in humans. Infected lymph nodes may spontaneously abscess and drain.

Cats can pose a risk of plague transmission to humans. Because of the potential for transmission to humans, cats suspected of having plague should be hospitalized and placed in isolation. Persons having significant contact with a plague-infected cat, particularly cats with respiratory signs or draining abscesses should consult with their health care provider regarding the need for a prophylactic course of antibiotics. Local and state public health officials should be notified immediately of cases of plague diagnosed in domestic cats.

Plague is known to be related to fluctuations in rodent population at elevations greater than 2500 feet. Residents and visitors in these regions are advised to take the following precautions:

• Do not feed or handle wild animals; particularly ground squirrels and chipmunks.
• Eliminate trash near living areas, which attract and can harbor rodents.
• Report any animals acting strangely (i.e. sluggishly) to Kern County Environmental Health.
• Do not touch sick or dead animals. Report their location to Kern County Environmental Health.
• If odors or flies are noticed around rodent burrows, report this to Kern County Environmental Health.
• Do not camp or sit near rodent burrows, where infected animals may live. When possible, sleep off the ground, such as on cots.
• Domestic animals visiting plague suspected areas should be observed for seven (7) days. If they become ill, they should be examined by a veterinarian.
• Use insect repellent in plague endemic areas.
• Wear protective clothing including long sleeved shirts and long pants with cuffs tucked into the socks.
• Use flea repellent products on your pets regularly; ie: collars, bath, ointments, and powders, especially after returning from a wilderness area.
• If pets appear sick after returning from a wilderness area, handle them carefully and take them to a veterinarian immediately.
• See a physician if within seven (7) days of a visit to an endemic area you become ill with fever, chills, muscle aches, nausea, sore throat, headaches, physical exhaustion and /or painful swollen lymph nodes as the initial symptoms may be nonspecific.

It is prudent for all residents and visitors to known endemic areas of the county adhere to measures that would minimize their exposure to potentially infected animals. For more information, contact Public Health, Environmental Health Services at (661) 862-8700.

Ecologists Spot Rare Wild Cat in United Arab Emirates

I need to check to see if any pictures of this wild cat in the UAE have been released.

A never-seen-before wild cat has been spotted in the protected zone of Wadi Wurayah on the eastern Coast of the UAE.

Camera traps set up by the ecologists working in the mountainous area have captured an image of a rare breed of wild cat (Felis silvestris lybica) whose presence was, until now, just assumed thanks to some elusive tracks, WAM news agency quoting Gulf News daily reported yesterday.

Wadi Wurayah is a 129 sq km area that was declared UAE's first protected mountainous area in March 2009, the report added.

Australia's Senate Defeats Carbon Trading Bill on the Eve of Copenhagen

The climate change carbon cap and trade tax scam appears to be falling apart right before our eyes. Climate Gate has exposed some of the fraudulent practices practiced by the climate research centers to promote erroneous global warming information. And now, Australia's Senate has defeated its version of the carbon cap and trade bill, and says that it will not pass the law until the United States passes similar legislation.

The Senate, where the government of the prime minister, Kevin Rudd, does not hold a majority, rejected 41-33 his administration's proposal for Australia to become one of the first countries to install a so-called cap-and-trade system to slash the amount of heat-trapping pollution that industries pump into the air.


President Obama Announces His Plans for Securing America's Digital Future Against Cyber Criminals (May 29, 2009)

From nextgov:

This video is from a 16-minute speech where President Obama announces the release of a 60-day review of cybersecurity by Melissa Hathaway, acting senior director for cyberspace at the National Security Council.

Obama emphasized the importance of safeguarding the nation's digital infrastructure, which he called "the backbone that underpins a prosperous economy and a strong military, and an open and efficient government."

Homeland Security's Cyber Storm III to Test Obama's National Cyberattack Response Plan in September, 2010!

I missed the first two editions of Cyber Storm in 2006 and 2008, but it appears to be some type of cyber attack simulation to test America's response plan.

You can read about the 2006 Cyber Storm I and the 2008 Cyber Storm II exercises by clicking the appropriate link. The next exercise conducted by the Department of Homeland Security will be in September, 2010 and will test President Obama's national cyber response plan.

Cyber Storm III will build upon the lessons learned in the two previous exercises that took place in February 2006 and March 2008, and provide the first opportunity to assess the White House strategy for responding to a cyberattack with nationwide impact.

"The national cyber response plan will be an offshoot of a lot of the findings that came out of Cyber Storm I and II that will formalize the roles and responsibilities," said Brett Lambo, director of the cyber exercises program in DHS' national cybersecurity division. He participated on an afternoon panel at the GFirst conference in Atlanta hosted by the department's U.S. Computer Emergency Readiness Team. "It's not a direct cause-and-effect relationship, but a lot of questions bubbled up [from the exercises]," followed by the announcement along with President Obama's 60-day cyber review that a response plan should be developed.

Details of the national cyber response plan are still being finalized through weekly meetings with stakeholders from federal government and industry. An initial report is scheduled to be released in November, less than a year before Cyber Storm III kicks off, said Robert Dix, vice president of government affairs and critical infrastructure protection at Juniper Networks, who is among the industry representatives involved in both the plan's development and the Cyber Storm exercises.

Deputy Defense Secretary Outlines Protections for Military Information (Over 100 Foreign Intelligence Organizations Trying to Hack U.S. Systems)

Deputy defense secretary outlines protections for information

by Samantha L. Quigley
American Forces Press Service

12/4/2009 - WASHINGTON (AFNS) -- Although information technology enables the Defense Department to make gains in military capabilities, those gains come at a cost, the deputy defense secretary told industry executives in New York.

"The Defense Department makes a tempting target," Mr. William J. Lynn III said. "We have 7 million computer devices, and each is under threat. This is not a new threat."

Mr. Lynn told several hundred Aerospace and Defense Conference attendees Dec. 2 that more than 100 foreign intelligence organizations are trying to hack in to U.S. systems, and foreign governments are developing offensive cyber capabilities. Some already have the capacity to disrupt elements of U.S. information.

Organized criminal groups and hackers are trying to get in on the act as well, he said. They're building global networks of compromised computers and renting them to the highest bidders, in essence becoming 21st century cyber mercenaries.

"So our defense networks are under threat each and every day," Mr. Lynn said. "They are probed thousands of times a week. They are scanned millions of times a day, and the frequency and sophistication of these attempts and these intrusions are increasing exponentially."

Because of its importance and the threats against it, the department now formally recognizes cyberspace for what it is: a domain similar to land, sea, air and space, Mr. Lynn said.

And just like those other domains, it needs protection. "Just as we need freedom of navigation of the seas, we need freedom of movement online," Mr. Lynn said.

The department is working in culture, capabilities, and command to meet the threats against it in cyberspace.

Most of the 90,000 personnel defending the 15,000 networks are not formally certified in information assurance. An expansion of the department's training and certification programs will help to build a "truly world-class cyber workforce," Mr. Lynn said.

The creation of a testing ground will allow the department to engage in real-world simulations so it can develop, test, and field new cyber security capabilities.

Also, Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates approved the creation of the Cyber Command as a sub-component of the Strategic Command. It will lead day-to-day defense and protection of all defense networks, Mr. Lynn said, while emphasizing its specific focus.

"I want to be very clear about this: Cybercom is not the militarization of cyberspace," he said. "It will be responsible for the DOD's networks; the dot-mil world."

Responsibility for the civilian defense networks, the dot-gov networks, will remain with the Homeland Security Department.

"We're making progress, but we still have a long way to go," he said. Another part of the progress is the president's new office of cyber security. But the question of how to partner with industry remains.

"The cyber domain, unlike land, sea, air and space, is owned primarily by private entities, which operates most of our nation's information infrastructure," Mr. Lynn said. "To protect it, the government needs to establish coherent, effective laws and regulations that preserve proprietary information.

"Devising answers to these questions is an enormous challenge," he added.

Also working on these challenges for the government, business partnerships in particular, is Robert J. Butler, the deputy assistant secretary of defense for cyber and space policy. He participated in the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association International town hall Dec. 3, to close the organization's "Solutions Series" conference.

"Within my arena, (Office of the Secretary of Defense) policy, we have three primary goals," he said. "One is to provide guidance within the department, working for the secretary ... to find ways that we can build those organizational relationships within the government, and then the international partnerships."

He agrees with Mr. Lynn that the effort to meet cyber threats fall into the "three C's" -- culture, capability and command.

"I spend a fair amount of my time really working with lots of different groups on the education process," he said. "I see that as a huge issue. I would encourage, and I'm certainly excited and enthused, (about) what AFCEA has been doing through this (AFCEA Solutions) series."

The town hall concluded the two-day conference, "Cyberspace at the Cross Roads: The Intersection of Cyber, National and Economic Security."

The purpose of the conference, held in Virginia, was to further the dialogue between government and the private sector on key policy and technology barriers limiting the ability to combat threats.
