Remembering the Swine Flu Plague of… When Was That, Again?

by Liam Scheff


– Don’t catch a cold!

File under: “How stupid are we?” I noted this in 2009. It’s worth a revisit:

The deadly swine flu! See if you can spot the problems with the mainstream narrative:

“LA GLORIA, Mexico: Tucked away in this small mountain village in Mexico, off a dusty road flanked by pig farms, is where the earliest case of swine flu — a virus spreading globally — was confirmed.”

(Pig farms? Feces lagoons? Pesticides, antibiotics, nitrogen, bacteria, colon products – in ‘lagoons?’ And we’re confused by illness?)

“Meet the child known as “patient zero” by his doctors — 5-year-old Edgar Hernandez, who survived the earliest documented case of swine flu in an outbreak that, officials say, has now spread across four continents.”

(It has spread! It must have killed everyone in the town!)

“His family lives in the 3,000-population village of La Gloria in the state of Veracruz, where a flu outbreak was reported on April 2. State officials arrived and tested dozens of people.”

(Dozens! Dozens of people living around feces lagoons… didn’t… feel… well!!)

“Edgar has managed to bounce back from his symptoms and playfully credits ice cream for helping him feel better.”

(Dear God.. NOOOOO!!!!! Noooo. I mean. Oh.)

(Okay. So…. Right. Can we learn more about this scourge?)

“LA GLORIA, Mexico — Everyone told Maria del Carmen Hernandez that her kindergartner’s illness was just a regular cold. But it seemed like the whole town of 3,000 was getting sick.”

(Oh NO! It seemed like 3,000 people living around pig farms… uhm.)

“As early as February, neighbors all around her were coming down with unusually strong flu symptoms — and the caseload kept growing. When state health workers came to investigate March 23, some 1,300 people sought their medical help. About 450 were diagnosed with acute respiratory infections and sent home with antibiotics and surgical masks.”

(Well! 450 people had respiratory problems. 1,300 had “unusually strong flu symptoms. Like… headaches? Diarrhea? Gosh. Sounds like pesticide poisoning).

“Five-year-old Edgar Hernandez was still healthy then. Hernandez wanted to keep him home from school so he wouldn’t get sick, but her husband said, “We can’t be afraid of what might or might not happen.”

(But, I thought he was “patient zero?”)

“Then he came home with a fever and a headache so bad his eyes hurt. She took him to a clinic, and after a few days of antibiotics, he too recovered.”

(Oh. He wasn’t. He didn’t. Right. Ice cream. He’s fine! Okay! They gave him antibiotic-rich ice-cream, and didn’t look for pesticide poisoning. But, how is he patient zero?)

“His family lives in the 3,000-population village of La Gloria in the state of Veracruz, where a flu outbreak was reported on April 2. State officials arrived and took samples from dozens of people.”

(Dozens of cases of swine flu! NOOO!!!!)

“Lab tests confirmed that Edgar was the only patient in Veracruz to test positive for the swine flu virus; the others had contracted a common flu. Health officials had returned to Edgar’s sample only after cases of the new flu strain were spotted around the country.”

(What? Nobody else ‘tested positive’ on the (crap) non-specific test? So, although he was the LAST of 1,300 people to feel sick… he was the only one “with” swine flu? (Or, the only one who tricked the (crap) test?)

(But, it’s the swine flu PANDEMIC! It must have killed to cause an international emergency!)

“Meanwhile, Mexican health officials suspect the swine flu outbreak has caused more than 159 deaths and roughly 2,500 illnesses.”

(Oh NO! They… SUSPECT!!!!! That is… hm. Uhm.)

“The World Health Organization says at least 105 cases have been confirmed worldwide, including 64 in the United States; 26 in Mexico; six in Canada; three in New Zealand; and two each in Spain, the United Kingdom and Israel. WHO has confirmed deaths only in Mexico, where seven people have died from swine flu.”

(OH NO! A hundred and five people have had an ICE-CREAM FLU!!! Dear God..no. No. Hm. Seven deaths in Mexico. Maybe near…pig farms? Where people live near…Feces Lagoons!? No. Couldn’t be a ’cause’ of illness. Lagoons of feces. Please!)

End of slideshow.

So, let’s summarize? Some VERY FEW people around the world (105 cases of a cold!) get a sniffle. The WHO hunts for it with non-specific tests. It kills a few with antibiotics. Some die of pesticide poisoning.

What about the factory farming? Wait…we do that here! Hey! Let’s visit Iowa!

• The nearly 733,000 hogs on factory farms in Plymouth County, Iowa, produce twice as much untreated manure as the sewage from the Dallas-Fort Worth metro area.
• The more than 857,000 hogs on factory farms in Hardin County, Iowa, produce three times as much untreated manure as the sewage from the greater Atlanta metro area.
• The more than 1 million hogs on factory farms in Sioux County, Iowa, produce as much untreated manure as the sewage from the Los Angeles and Atlanta metro areas combined.

And it’s not just hogs that are crammed into the state’s factory farms. According to FWW, Iowa’s vast confinement facilities also house 1.2 million beef cattle, 52.4 million egg-laying hens, 1 million broiler chickens, and 64,500 dairy cows. Altogether, this teeming horde annually churns out “as much untreated manure as the sewage from 471 million people—more than the entire US population.”

Keeping such titanic amounts of shit out of water is a near futile task.

There are occasional spectacular incidents—FWW points to the time in 2008 when spring floods “destroyed at least 3 hog factory farms near Oakville, drowned up to 1,500 hogs and flooded manure from storage pits downstream into waterways throughout eastern Iowa.” [LINK]

– “This is one of the lagoons. It’s pink because it’s filled not just with shit, but with porcine afterbirths and blood and chemicals and medicines and trash and anything that falls through the grates in the sheds where the pigs are kept. And Smithfield makes one of every four pork products sold in the States. They rule the industry. And that’s the real problem: industrial farming. Pigs are bred and killed in quantities difficult for us to imagine, but if you took the populations of America’s 32 largest cities and killed and sold them, you’d have an idea of the scale on which Smithfield operates.” [LINK]

Gooooo, Iowa! Gooooo, North Carolina! Back to Mexico….

After calls to the American CDC, the WHO shows up and, deflecting attention from pesticides and toxins, covers up a toxic spill or pesticide spraying. How? By using non-specific testing. They do it in every field.

In sum, a case of toxicological, environmental poisoning became an international ‘swine flu.’ Rinse, wash, repeat.
