The End of the Western World and the Birth of a New Global Order

: When China Rules the World


By Martin Jacques

Penguin Group


576 Pages

This book describes how China’s ascendance as an economic superpower will alter the cultural, political, social, and ethnic balance of global power in the twenty-first century, unseating the West and creating a whole new world. According to even the most conservative estimates, China will overtake the US as the world’s largest economy by 2027 and will ascend to the position of world economic leader by 2050. But the full repercussions of China’s ascendancy—for itself and the rest of the globe—have been surprisingly little explained or understood. In this far-reaching and original investigation, Martin Jacques offers provocative answers to some of the most pressing questions about China’s growing place on the world stage.

Martin Jacques reveals, by elaborating on three historical truths, how China will seek to shape the world in its own image. The Chinese have a rich and long history as a civilisation-state. Under the tributary system, outlying states paid tribute to the Middle Kingdom. 94% of the population still believes they are one race—‘Han Chinese’. The strong sense of superiority rooted in China’s history promises to resurface in twenty-first century China and in the process strengthen and further unify the country.

A culturally self-confident Asian giant with a billion-plus population, China will likely resist globalisation as we know it. This exceptionalism will have powerful ramifications for the rest of the world and the US in particular. As China is already emerging as the new centre of the East Asian economy, the mantle of economic and, therefore, cultural relevance will in our lifetimes begin to pass from Manhattan and Paris to cities like Beijing and Shanghai. It is the American relationship with and attitude towards China, Jacques argues, that will determine whether the twenty-first century will be relatively peaceful or fraught with tension, instability and danger.

George Soros Plundered Russia for Illuminati (III)

Summary of Oleg Platonov, "Russia's Crown of Thorns- Secret History of Freemasonry" 1731-1996 (1996) Part 3
by "Sonja" in Moscow

Masonic financial frauds
George Soros (left) was the brain behind every big financial fraud completed in Russia in the 90s. He was behind many Russian political functionaries - Chubais, Gaidar, Burbulis and others, who were key figures of so-called privatization which resulted in the transfer into the ownership of international financial swindlers of the biggest part of Russian national properties. Five hundred privatized Russian enterprises with the real cost of 200 billion dollars were bargained away for as little as 7,2 billion dollars and became legal properties of foreign companies and front structures.
In mid 90s, the Soros fund took a series of steps aimed at destruction of the Russain economy. American experts say that the ruble crash on 11 October, 1994 (aka Black Tuesday) happened due to Soros Fund's machinationsl. They note that by the beginning of summer 1994 the Soros Fund purchased shares of a number of Russian enterprises at a sum of 10 million dollars. At the end of summer 1994 with shares cost increasing dramatically, Soros sold them. His resulting profit amounted to 400 million dollars. At the end of September 1994, Soros started to exchange rubles for dollars and this caused skyrocketing dollar rate, the devaluation of Russian currency, collapse of financial system and rapid bankruptcy of many Russian enterprises.
Another operation that devastated the Russian economy was outrageous manipulation with GKO (in Russian - national monetary obligations) . In 1992-1993 Soros acted as a permanent adviser to the Russian President and government and he initiated the GKO pyramid. Holders of GKO received a big income that was not supported by real money. The income was ensured by the compulsory intrusion of GKO papers to Russian enterprises and financial institutions. GKO operations were favored by Chernomyrdin (Prime Minister),
Chubais (Minister of Energetics), Livshits (Minister of Finance) and others. Within a few years, the enterprises able to buy GKO papers were exhausted and the collapse of GKO pyramid was looming. Soros who invested lots of money into GKO, was the first to foresee it.

In spring-summer Soros, his dealers and top bureaucrats get rid of their GKO papers through front companies, stimulating the drop of GKO value. Experts say that over 700 Russian functionaries (including political leaders) participated in this fraud. On August 17 -
the day of default - many of them sold their GKO papers at a high rate for IMF money, thus transferring billions of dollars to their personal accounts in western banks and leaving useless GKO papers in the state treasury. On August 17 the government refuses to pay the GKO percent. Banks and companies that accumulated a big amount of GKO papers experienced a catastrophic shock which caused a threefold ruble devaluation, skyrocketing prices and bankruptcy of enterprises. As foreign banks and investors had also acquired GKO papers due to their high income, they suffered either. Low financial prestige of Russia fell to the ground.
G.Burbulis (Eltsin's assistant) was one of key-figures in GKO fraud and did not conceal that the biggest part of his fortune was made through securities manipulations. He also had tight connections with other financial swindlers both Russian and foreign -
such as M.Rich (Mossad agent and drug-dealer) and Urinsons brothers and he is admitted to have conducted illegal transactions with weapons. Burbulis was a mediator between Eltsin and Rich in procurement of oil delivery export licenses, which brought huge income.
Chubais's business is directly connected with Soros's financial manipulations. He also shared interests with Bonde-Nilsen - major mason, owner of ship constructing company, who was found guilty of business frauds and was sued. Chubais is well-known for many other big financial manipulations in Russia.
Almost all of major Russian Masons made huge personal fortunes on grievances and devastation of our country. According to information given in the press the following were especially successful:
Commander of Maltese Order B.Berezovsky ( personal fortune over 1 billion dollars)
Member of Bnai-Brith and Rotary Club B.Gusinsky (not less than 800 billion dollars)
Trilateral Commission Advisers B.Chernomyrdin and R.Vyahirev (around 1 billion each)
Member of Rotary club Yu.Luzhkov (mayor of Moscow) (300-400 million dollars)

According to information published in Italian and American newspapers in August-September 1999, the biggest part of IMF loans (not less than 15 billion dollars) were stolen by Commander of Maltese Order B.Eltsin (Yeltsin), his daughter and their milieu (A.Chubais, A.Livshits, O.Soskovets, B.Potanin). This money went through offshore zones created specifically for their needs (in Cyprus, Gibraltar and Zurich).
One of the major transit zones in this financial fraud was The Bank of New-York (its four top executives being Freemasons).
Considerable part of stolen money was invested in securities of American corporations. Khodorkovsky (head of Ukos oil-company and head Menatep Bank. Currently in jail) was likely to participate in the fraud. By the way his name was included in the of 200 representatives whose activity will influence the course of history in the third century.
Forces of international Freemasonry are dangerous for human civilization - they are super-rich, powerful and aspiring for absolute power. They are capable of any crime at all. Events that continue to happen in Russia are vivid example of that.

Purpose of Russia's extermination

In late 90s the world's Masonic elite began to openly proclaim the coming NWO. They were sure that by the year 2000, the world government would control and direct all aspects of humanity's life including religion. Russia's role in the NWO is "a reservoir of natural and energy resources". The world government is not concerned with the future of Russian people. Russia is considered as "strategic territory" (Bzesinsky) or "the place containing enormous part of planet's resources"(Rockefel ler). "The less people inhabit Russia the more available it will become for the West" (Bsezinsky).
There have been different plans as to Russia'a break-up: three, six and seven parts.
But the major strategic line of the world's elite in respect to Russia is maintaining the country in destabilized condition AND cooperation with destructive political, economic and national processes.
Madelaine Albright said at the conference of Russian-American business cooperation: "US goal is to control the consequences of the Soviet break-up and support for Russian while they continue to move in the same direction".
In his book "The Great Chessboard" Brzezinsky formulates the long-term geopolitical strategy of the world's elite, US establishment being its core. This strategy envisages complete extermination of Russia on its historical European part (till The Urals), ousting Russians (as well as Ukranians and Belorussians) into remote regions of Siberia and using them as a labour force for mining operations.
In his complicated Judo-Masonic language Bzresinsky maintains the following idea:
Russia is not liable for transformation into a "western democracy" due to its specific spiritual characteristics. Russia is a 'black hole" hostile to the West. That's why it has to be destroyed.
Bzrezinsky accuses Elstin and his team of corruption and doesn't believe that his followers will be different. Bzrezinsky was scandalized that the money donated by IMF for "transformation into a western type" have been stolen by Russian leaders and transferred to their personal bank accounts. On the other hand Bzrezinsky doesn't intend to sue Eltsin and his team and thinks their corruption is innate feature typical for any Russian person. He proposes to get rid of Russia once and for all -
of Russia as a geographic, political, spiritual phenomenon, splitting it up into several puppet states and transferring part of its territory to EU, Turkey, Japan and China.

One of the major tasks of the world's elite is to destroy national governments and establishing in their place Judo-Masonic ruling regimes. For the past 150 years all western European countries have lost their national governments and are now ruled by cosmopolitan Masonic elites, whose interests are far from majority of ordinary Germans, French, British and other western Europeans. The elections show of two or three parties (the same in their essence)
is cover-up for the cruelest dictatorship of the secret world government and international Jewish capital.

Military actions in Yugoslavia
Plans of military aggression in Eastern Europe were developed at meetings of the International Affairs Counsel and Trilateral Commission.
These institutions made a decision to punish the Serbs for their disobedience to the world's elite rules. The Serbs' major guilt is pursuing national interests and attempts to maintain national integrity and Orthodox religion. The Serbs were the only European people who managed to keep national government that opposed the world's elite dictatorship.
Military actions in Yugoslavia were a big move in establishing the NWO.
Millions of people suffered and tens of thousand got killed during multiple bombardments. It's important to note that the weapons used in Yugoslavia were those forbidden by international conventions. The economy of the country was destroyed.
Invasion of NATO troops was an action aimed at gradual devastation of the country and the following transfer of its territories to neighboring states.
G.Soros, one of the NWO leaders said a month after the bombardments that the Balkans should go under the protection of the European Counsel. As a result of reconstruction the region would be divided into Albania, Kosovo, Serbia, Croatia and Montenegro. This operation was a sort of a test-drive for Russia's reconstruction. Secret support of anti-Russian gangs in Chechnya, Dagestan and other southern region in Russia as well as CIA sponsored Taliban aim at tearing away rich in oil Russian territories rich and assigning to this region a role of Russian Kosovo.

Freemasonry is a criminal community
Freemasonry in every aspect is a secret criminal community. Its goal is to achieve international dictatorship based on Judaist doctrine of "Chosen People".
Russian Orthodox Church always condemned Freemasonry as a form of Satanism.
Freemasons have always been the evil enemy of humanity, still more dangerous as they tried to cover-up their criminal activities with a veil of deceitful arguments about spiritual growth and charity. Yet awful crimes committed by Freemasons put them outside of law. In many countries Masonic Lodges have been constantly prohibited.

1725 - prohibition of Freemasonry in France.
1738 - prohibition in Holland and Sweden.
1740 - Spanish King Phillip V issues a regulation against Freemasons.
1748 - prohibited in Turkey
1740 - prohibited in Malta
1801 - Emperor Francisco II prohibits Freemasonry in Austria
1823 - prohibited in Portugal.

Notwithstanding prohibitions Masonic ideology expanded. Masonic influence was behind all wars, revolutions and cataclysms of 18-20 centuries.
By the end of 19th century Freemasons influenced directly the policy of western European countries, playing a key role in governments and parliaments.
The stronghold of modern Freemasonry are the United States of America. US is believed to be "the great Masonic super-power" . Its government and top officials are members of Masonic Lodges.
Here is the list of military operations performed by US and based on Masonic principles:

1945 - A-bomb blasts in Hiroshima and Nagasaki
1948-1953 - punitive operations against the Philippines people
1950-1953 - military invasion in Korea. Hundreds of thousands of Koreans perished.
1964 - 1973 - punitive operations in Laos. Thousands of victims.
1964 - bloody suppression of Panama national forces, demanding the return of their rights in Panama straight.
1965-1973 - military aggression in Vietnam. Over 500 thousand Vietnamese perished. In Hitler-style peaceful villages were destroyed and burned to the ground. Mass murder of women and children.
1970 - aggression against Cambodia. Multiple victims of peaceful citizens.
1982 - 1983 - act of terrorism against Lebanon.
1983 - military invasion in Grenada. Hundreds of victims.
1986 - treacherous invasion in Libya.
1989 - military invasion in Panama.
1991 - large scale military operation against Iraq. Not less than 150 hundred thousand citizens perished.
1992-1993 - military operation in Somali. Murder of peaceful citizens.
1999 - aggression against Yugoslavia, thousands of victims, hundreds of thousands of refugees.

These are open military actions. Also US was largely involved in silent wars against Salvador, Cuba, Afghanistan, Iran, where they investing huge sums of money to support pro-American puppet regimes.
Total of victims perished as a result of Masonic US Presidents decrees during 1948-1999 amounts to more than a million people (not including injured and destitute ones).
Actions of US Presidents must be brought to international military tribunal and Masonic Lodges of all types must be given the status of fascist organizations and strictly prohibited.
In Russia, Masonic Lodges were prohibited three times by special Tsarist decrees. The last prohibition had existed till 1917.
Despite the prohibition Masonic Lodges functioned secretly. Signs of their activity can be traced in 19th and 20th centuries (even during the Soviet rule).
Gorbachev's and Eltsin's decrees legalized Freemasonry in Russia. Masonic organizations as they seriously threaten the future of Russia.

Obama Tells Russian Leader “US Constitution Dead”

“Do you want to know who you are? Don't ask. Act! Action will delineate and define you.”

Thomas Jefferson, Third President of the United States (April 13, 1743 – July 4, 1826)

One of the saddest Kremlin reports we’ve ever read stated that during President Obama’s meeting with President Medvedev at the Asia-Pacific summit of APEC Nations in Singapore, the American leader when asked his thoughts on Prime Minister Putin’s warning that the United States should cease its march towards socialism replied, “It doesn’t matter since for all intent and purposes the US Constitution is dead”.

In his speech to the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, this past winter Putin had warned Obama of the dangers of socialism by saying, “In the 20th century, the Soviet Union made the state’s role absolute, in the long run, this made the Soviet economy totally uncompetitive. This lesson cost us dearly. I am sure nobody wants to see it repeated.”

Putin further cautioned Obama against using military Keynesianism to lift its economy out of recession, saying, “In the longer run, militarization won’t solve the problem but will rather quell it temporarily. What it will do is squeeze huge financial and other resources from the economy instead of finding better and wiser uses for them.”

Unfortunately for the American people, Obama has not only failed to heed Putin’s warning, he has embarked upon an unprecedented mission since taking office of subverting the United States, and its people, by literally bowing down before the leaders of a Globalist elite intent upon the destruction of our present World so as to remake it in an image more befitting the ancient era of omnipotent Kings who ruled over their subjects with iron fists and tolerated no dissent whatsoever.

In Obama’s bowing down before the brutal Saudi Arabian King with the “beamingJewish French President Nicolas Sarkozy looking on , to be followed this past week by his bowing down before he Japanese Emperor whose people consider him to be a “god”, the American people have been given the clearest example possible that the World they once knew is totally gone.

And to this “New World” these American people are entering they haven’t the slightest clue about the horrors they are about to face, a fact made more cruel because of their propaganda media organs all being a part of the greater plot to see these once great people, and their Nation, completely destroyed and sacrificed upon the alter for an elite class of rulers who include the CEO of the Goldman Sachs banking giant Goldman Sachs (who have engineered every major market manipulation since the Great Depression - and are about to do it again) who this past week in London said, and I quote exactly, that they are “doing God's work” by their making hundreds of billions in profits off the backs of the American people who are losing their jobs and homes by the tens-of-millions.

For those American people believing that Obama is going to protect them against monsters such as this they should think again too, because the fact that he, Obama, is President of the United States at all is due to his being placed in power over them by Goldman Sachs in the first place, who by all accounts “own Obama, lock, stock and barrel.

So, if the American people are no longer being protected or told the truth by either their leaders or their propaganda news media, who is this battle being left to? Simple, those of us who have dared to stand up against this tyranny of lies and destruction and SHOUT as loud as we can of the dangers coming so that they can protect themselves.

But we can’t do this without you, and whether you realize it or not, you need us now more than you have ever needed us before.

Unfortunately for us, and those like us, this is an expensive battle and those we are opposed to are relentlessly ruthless is silencing us and keeping you from knowing the truth about what is happening now, what has happened in the past, and what is going to happen in the future.

Only you can decide what you are going to be told, to whom you are going to listen to….isn’t it time that you stopped listening to lies? If so, than ACT to protect those few of us left still willing and able to tell the truth before you no longer have any choices left.

Without your support we cannot survive into next week, let alone next month, please don’t let this happen because when you turn away from us you are turning your back on the truth.

If every one of you reading these words gave just $50.00 we would be able to survive for an entire year. But because so few of you do we have to continually ask for your support. And when you will finally wake up to the reality that you are a combatant in a real life and death war, and your enemy is your own government and press, you had better hope that we, and other like us, are still around otherwise you’ll be totally uninformed and unprotected. Just like the people in Ukraine, who without our reports, and others using our reports to further inform these people, would have no idea about what is happening to them.

And make no mistake about this, what is happening in the Ukraine IS GOING TO HAPPEN TO YOU, the only question you have to answer is how much you trust your own government and press to warn you ahead of time?

Deadly flu spreads across Ukraine

Ghost Troop: Biowar in Ukraine? (w/data)

Tuesday, November 17, 2009 6:43 PM

Deadly flu continues to spread across Ukraine, criminal World Health Organization lies to the public, MSM maintains radio silence.

There are many aspects to this story. It is impossible to know where to begin -- let alone cover all the pertinent facts in just one article. Those who have followed my Zerohedge columns in the past may be aware the subject of pandemic influenza has been a regular feature, precisely because there have been multiple signs indicating a global pandemic would be exploited (and perhaps even initiated) by governments and international banks for political purposes.

The signs have been building, including as I previously reported, forced quarantine orders inadvertently published by the CDC. What do these people know which the public does not?

From: Lisa Nerone
Date: Tuesday, November 17, 2009

Big article with all the known facts and statistics. Some good conclusions, or I should say that I agree with his conclusions.
Save The Planet- eat a globalist.
------------ --------- --------- --------- ----
"Fear of man will prove to be a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord is kept safe"
(Proverbs 29:25, NIV)
"Be not afraid nor dismayed...for the battle is not yours, but God's" (2 Chron. 20:15)
"Fear not [there is nothing to fear], for I am with you; do not look around you in terror and be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen and harden you to difficulties, yes, I will help you; yes, I will hold you up and retain you with My [victorious] right hand of rightness and justice" (Isaiah 41:10, AMP).
"Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up" (Gal. 6:9).
"Lift up your heads…that the King of glory may come in" (Psalm 24:7, AMP).
“Call on Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall honor and glorify Me” (Psalm 50:15)


Over the past two weeks, what appears to be a particularly virulent form of the flu has been spreading in Ukraine and adjacent Eastern European countries. This new flu is, in my opinion, a lethal new strain which has mutated (or was released). I speak with a background in virology. This new mutated flu virus appears to have a remarkable affinity for the lungs and is causing deaths to a much higher extent than the previous swine flu. Something in the virus has changed. I have covered this incredibly important story for two weeks now in my weekly column This Week In Mayhem, which is generally published on Monday mornings.

Regardless, there has been almost zero (NOTHING. NADA. SILENCE.) mention of the Ukraine epidemic in the mainstream media, a fact which I find both astonishing and profoundly disturbing. There is apparently collusion at the highest levels of government and media to suppress this information. There are now 1.3 million infected in Ukraine, and over 75,000 hospitalized -- IN FOURTEEN DAYS. This is very serious! Based on previous clinical data we can expect over 8,000 to be dead or soon to be dead. Forward projection of the epidemic is difficult because the clinical attack rate is unknown -- but myself and my associates remain concerned it may be quite high. Deaths globally may be in the millions. Let's hope this is not the case.

An example of viral pneumonia. Yeah, fail.

The new flu strain, which I contend is spreading in Ukraine and Belarus, is characterized by a lightning form of viral pneumonia -- very similar to what happened in 1918. The new flu virus appears to have profound tissue affinity for sialic acid receptors deep in the lungs, replicating in the alveoli. To put it mildly, the lungs fill with blood. Quotes from Ukrainian officials included quotes such as "total destruction of the lungs." Ukrainian Doctor Viktor Bachinsky has stated, "The virus causing the deaths is extremely aggressive -- it doesn't first infect the throat (as is common in flu), but strikes the lungs directly." In Ukraine's western Chernovetsky region, an epicenter of the outbreak, doctors have said lab tests showed at least some of the fatalties appeared to be caused by a flu dissimilar to both common flu and swine flu. In other words, a mutant flu. This claim of a 'mutant flu' has been echoed by Ukrainian public health officials such as Dr. Vasyl Lazoryshynetz. Unfortunately, as noted in the above Russia Today video, pharmacies across the country are sold out of antivirals. To the hard of thinking -- yes, this is currently happening in Ukraine.

I have multiple sources confirming spot outbreaks of viral pneumonia in Eastern Europe, including official and non-official entities. In terms of the current situation, there appear to be a high number of pneumonia patients in Ukrainian and Belerusian hospitals. This epidemic has not shut down Ukrainian society yet, but it has caused many people to become concerned, and to buy up essential medicines. Reports from doctors in Belarus indicate they do not expect this deadly new flu epidemic to peak until Christmas or later. This is why it is important to analyze the situation and viral genetics now, and if necessary, contain the spread of the virus while it is still possible -- something the criminals at WHO do not appear interested in doing. These idiots at WHO have yet to release the viral gene sequences (even though they have had them for two weeks), and are now outright lying in their press releases, which I detail later. In terms of how dangerous this new flu strain could potentially be, I conducted a rough analysis of the Ukrainian government statistics, yielding a projected case fatality rate (CFR) of 0.61% -- over six times as lethal as seasonal flu.

Lastly, there are signs the virus is genetic engineered.


The Ukrainian government has been releasing daily data updates on the numbers of "acute respiratory infections" , the number of related hospitalizations , and the number of deaths since Oct 28, 2009. These reported numbers have increased substantially over the past two weeks, from near zero before Halloween to over a million as of today. It is important to remember that these statistics are not laboratory confirmed H1N1 cases (due to the state of the Ukrainian medical system), but we can cautiously assume at this point the vast majority of ARI (acute respiratory infection) in Ukraine with rapid progression to viral pneumonia are caused by influenza A virus. This is because a large subset of these samples are coming up positive of Influenza A, and a smaller subset tested by rt-rtPCR are coming up positive for influenza A/H1N1, or what is more commonly known as 'swine flu'. This suggests we are dealing with a viral epidemic of influenza.

This is not 'swine flu' as previously known. Statistically, the only way for this to be 'swine flu' is if it has mutated (or if the data is wrong). . . We will get to that in a minute.

As I mentioned , this data comes directly from the Ukrainian government. In the past two weeks, ARI have gone from near zero before Halloween to affecting 1.3 million Ukrainians. Over a million people are currently sick with probable H1N1. More importantly, there are over 75,000 total hospitalized at the time of the writing of this article, Monday 11/16. Based on these two figures (75,000 / 1.3 million), approximately 5.6% of those infected with this new ARI end up at the hospital. This is the critical statistic which allows us to estimate how f*cked we actually might be.

Officially, there are 299 deaths, but a realistic estimate shows this is easily one order of magnitude too low. Realistically deaths are between 2,000 - 8,000 people from this probable new strain of the flu -- so far. The number of dead is sure to rise dramatically, as we are only two weeks into this new epidemic. Which brings us to our estimation of the case fatality rate (CFR). Again, I would love to be wrong about this. Let's hope I am.


The current American strain 'swine flu' has a case fatality rate (CFR) of 0.1% or less. Seasonal flu has a CFR of 0.1%. The 1957 pandemic had a case fatality rate of 0.5%. The deadly 1918 pandemic had a CFR of 2 - 5%. Based on the Ukrainian government statistics, the new mutated Ukrainian flu has a CFR of 0.61% or higher -- that is, 6.1x as lethal as seasonal flu , perhaps more. Perhaps less if our assumptions are wrong.

We arrive at the 0.61% CFR statistic based on the number of hospitalizations in Ukraine vs. the number of infections. This estimate is only as good as the underlying data, but I have confidence it is in the ball-park (order of magnitude). I consider the official reported number of deaths (299) to be unreliable for political reasons. No one wants to be the country with the lethal flu. Doctors, especially those in Belarus (which is a dictatorship) feel strong administrative pressure to label influenza viral pneumonia deaths as something else, for example cardiac failure. Thus , ARI hospitalizations are the more reliable indicator for what is happening on the ground. Deaths can be implied from hospitalization statistics, assuming we are dealing with a form of H1N1 influenza.

Last week, the medical journal the Lancet published a meta-analysis of the (old) swine flu confirming a JAMA report that approximately 11% of hospitalized patients who had contracted the (old) swine flu died. We will use this 11% figure as our "middle case". The official government reported deaths (299) are considered “best case”. For a "worst case" estimate, we can assume that 25% of hospitalized flu patients will eventually die. We can use these 11% and 25% statistics to estimate the case fatality rate of the Ukrainian flu. The method is as follows:

To calculate the "middle case" and infer fatalities, we take 0.11 (11%, the figure from the JAMA) and multiply it by the number of Ukrainian hospitalizations on a particular date, to yield the expected number of ultimate fatalities. This method assumes the vast majority of reported ARI are from H1N1 swine flu. Using the November 15th data, this gives us 8345 expected fatalities. We take the number of expected fatalities and divide this into the total number who are estimated to be infected on the same particular data point (Nov 15). So 8345 deaths / 1.36 million infections , which yields the case fatality rate, which in this case is 0.61%. Obviously this is a rough estimate, but it is probably within an order of magnitude of the real CFR.

Assumptions for this model:
1) The vast majority of reported Ukrainian ARI are some form of H1N1 flu.
2) The data from the Ukrainian government for infections and hospitalizations is reliable and is not 'massaged' for political purposes.

Implications of this model:
1) If A1 and A2 are true, then statistically speaking we must be dealing with mutated H1N1 influenza (mutated 'swine flu').

In any case, this estimated CFR for Ukrainian flu is over six times higher than seasonal flu. Not good. Let's hope this is wrong. Our "worst case" 25% estimate gives a CFR of 1.39%, enough to eventually shut down commerce and society across the planet -- but fortunately it is likely this "worst case" estimate is far off the mark. For our estimates here, including the CFR estimate of 0.61% using the data from the JAMA -- supposing this estimate was purely based on Ukrainian government statistics, we could consider such an arbitrarily high Case Fatality Rate unreliable , and the product of bad data. However, in the context of multiple reports from individuals as well as state health authorities of MANY cases of viral pneumonia and thousands of patients in intensive care in Belarus and Ukraine, we consider this CFR estimate to make much more sense. That is, it fits the data on the ground of a worsening flu pandemic with a tendency towards viral pneumonia.

The old swine flu did not cause viral pneumonia, generally speaking. The new apparently mutated swine flu does, to an extent orders of magnitude higher. Thus , there must have been changes to the receptor binding domain , among other genes (perhaps PA, PB2, and NS1).


I am not fond of the World Health Organization. In my opinion, it is a tool of corrupt billionaire international financiers with which to achieve their dark global geopolitical objectives in the area of public health. These objectives are rarely in the public interest. We could spend paragraphs discussing deep corruption at WHO. One important point to remember is their obvious complicity and criminal cover-up regarding MMR vaccine contamination with Avian Leukosis Virus (ALV) , which may induce cancer.

The point here regarding WHO and the potential outbreak Ukraine is several:

-WHO has yet to release the gene sequences of the Ukrainian flu, despite possessing them for almost two weeks. They have also had a “team” on the ground in Lviv for a similar period of time. Where are the flipping gene sequences? The WHO has claimed there are no “big” mutations in the flu strain (apparently ruling out a viral reassortant), but has so far refused to release the Ukrainian flu gene sequences to the Internet community for analysis. This is reprehensible. What are these people doing? The world could know very quickly what we were dealing with if this genetic data was published, but instead it's being kept secret for whatever ulterior motives the WHO is operating under.

-WHO issued a press release on Friday which contained the following astonishing quote, bordering on deception.

“Because of a sharp rise in pandemic influenza cases one week ago in Ukraine, the Ministry of Health requested assistance from WHO European Regional Office to evaluate and respond. The initial analysis of information indicates that the numbers of severe cases do not appear to be excessive when compared to the experience of other countries and do not represent any change in the transmission or virulence of the virus.”

Okay, let's see: Ukraine asked WHO to respond. WHO sent a team to Lviv. So far so good, despite the missing gene sequences. Now wait, what? The WHO publishes their all-star analysis... “The number of severe cases do not appear to be excessive”? Are you kidding me? Please explain how 75,000 hospitalizations in two weeks is not 'excessive'? And how all the pharmacies sold out of antivirals? And how Ukraine is under de-facto martial law? And that Yushenko gave a prime-time speech more or less threatening political dissidents if they don't follow government orders? Or that school in Ukraine is canceled for three weeks? Half the country under quarantine? Hospitals seeing a surge of viral pneumonia patients? What gives? Are these people at WHO retarded or are they criminals?

Oh and of course the gem of this press release by WHO: That “[ the numbers of severe cases ] do not represent any change in the transmission or virulence of the virus.” Hahahaa! You are going to tell me that Ukraine went from two cases to 1.3 million cases in 14 days , and that doesn't represent any change in transmission? Is this supposed to be a joke? These pharmaceutical crooks damn well better explain themselves if you are going to make claims so obviously contrary to reality. Does the WHO contend the Ukrainian government just pulling these figures out of the air? What of the case reports of rapidly deteriorating viral pneumonia in Belarus, Ukraine, and Romania? What is causing this? What about the statements from Ukrainian health officials that we have a new flu strain? On what data are WHO basing these preposterous claims, which fly in the face of reality and common sense? Why not release the Ukrainian gene sequences? There is an obvious spike in mortality and pneumonia – why? Does WHO contend this is another pathogen besides influenza? If so, what? Honestly, this statement issued Friday November 13th from WHO is so obviously full of lies I really don't even have to comment; anyone with a brain can see they are not telling us the truth.

-WHO dodges questions from Bloomberg and Sun Media regarding a mutation in Ukrainian flu during last weeks press conference.

Phil Serafino, Bloomberg: Dr Shindo........I have a second question also which may not be your area of expertise but have you heard anything about the mutation of the virus or has it changed at all - are we looking at anything different than a few months ago?

Dr Shindo /WHO: Well, I can answer that question first. The virus is quite stable. It hasn't changed........

Joseph: This is Joseph from Kuala Lumpur - I am from the Sun Media......I just want to ask whether or not any slight mutation even a drift variant has been noticed so far?

Dr Shindo / WHO: Amazingly this virus is very stable and part of the reason, virologists (are saying) is because of the lack of pre-existing immunity in population so that virus doesn't have to mutate to escape from people's immunity. So it's quite stable.

What a joke! You'd think these fools at WHO were politicians , rather than doctors! Twice, the WHO official dodges questions from reporters (Bloomberg nonetheless!) on whether we are dealing with a critical new mutation in Ukraine sequences responsible for higher lethality and infectivity. Unbelievable. Again, I suggest these actions by WHO, taken in concert, are more akin to the actions of a criminal syndicate than to a global public health service. Lies and evasion. Stonewalling. Is this how we expect public servants to behave, especially on time-crucial issues upon which millions of lives depend? Unfortunately this is par for the course. Perhaps we should re-evaluate our conception of the world in which we live. hint: it is so incredibly corrupt, it defies man's imagination.

-Someone personally contacted WHO asking point-blanc , “Is there a critical mutation in this flu in Eastern Europe” and was met with silence.

The above speaks for itself. I was made aware of this contact through a phone conversation with a journalist from


I have mentioned the silence in the MSM on this issue. The only significant story I have noted was a story in Bloomberg. The NYT jumped on the bandwagon last Friday with a garbage fluff piece not addressing the critical questions. Furthermore, prior to these two articles, all MSM stories regarding Ukraine and flu were focusing on the internal political rivalry , rather than the rapid increase in infections and hospitalizations. My opinion here is that the MSM has been deliberately ignoring this story, as well as spinning it as “insignificant” by framing it as foreign politics rather than public health.

Instead, we see the usual MSM flu garbage about getting vaccinated (but of course no mention of vaccine contamination), about children getting sick, about pet cats catching the flu, and so on. The hype machine is still running 24/7. So where were the stories on Ukraine? What gives? Judging by all the ridiculous swine flu scare stories we've been hearing since past Spring , you'd think the mass media would jump all over the opportunity to scare the hell out of the public with the potential emergence of a new strain? But instead, silence.


I mentioned this before, I will embed the genetics image once again.

The swine flu virus is a triple-triple-reassortant , with the earlier triple-reassortant being approximately one decade old. The new H1N1 ('swine flu') emerged out of nowhere, out of season in Mexico, and went on to infect many people out of season in Spring 2009. The virus was fit and transmissible from the start – there was no detection of sporadic community outbreaks prior to the replication coefficient exceeding 1.0, resulting in sustained transmission. So this virus emerged ready to go – whether from genetic engineering, or from natural selection. However, no farm or wild swine herd has been identified which served as the reservoir for original Mexico City outbreak. The “patient zero” so-hyped by CNN – a 5-year old boy from La Gloria, Mexico – supposedly contracted the infection from a swine factory farm 80km away. This, we are supposed to believe, even though the virus was not identified in any pigs at the factory farm. So no source has yet been identified. The origins remain mysterious.

While a triple-reassortant flu is not uncommon, in the context of other information , geopolitical , economic , and scientific, the emergence of the original swine flu is extraordinarily suspect. The potential virulent reemergence is Ukraine after aerosol spraying is even more suspect. The H1N1 virus contains genes from multiple flu viruses – three to be precise. These three flu viruses which comprise 'swine flu' are from multiple continents. Furthermore, a total off 4-8% of the RNA (genetic material) is entirely new, with no known match in the public gene databases. The RNA polymerase in this flu is extra-ordinarily error prone according to the University of Edinburgh, multiple times the error rate of seasonal flus. Furthermore, the RNA polymerase is comprised of a bird-human-pig hybrid protein trimer from an earlier H3N2 triple-reassortant. This may be partly responsible for its ability to easily bridge across species. According to Dr. Adrian Gibbs, co-creator of Tamiflu, for this virus to emerge naturally, swine would have had to pass through quarantine twice in order to acquire the necessary genetics. Once from America to Asia , with a wait time in quarantine, and then back again from Asia to America, once again with a wait time through quarantine to America. Of course, this does not even include the pig getting the necessary flu triple coinfection after making ,its journey around the world. Even after this may have hypothetically occurred, the emergent virus was suddenly evolutionarily fit to spread in pigs, yet also genetically fit to spread in humans, yet also acquiring the necessary host-to-host contact between man and pig. If this was so, why was this not detected in any swine in Mexico prior to humans spreading the virus back to their herds? This suggests the virus emerged in humans first, prior to swine, which would indicate potential genetic engineering.

Lastly , comments from Dr. Adrian Gibbs, co-creator of Tamiflu, suggest a laboratory origin for this virus. Dr. Gibbs was very courageous to state this opinion despite the mass media brainwashing to the contrary. Gibbs suggested the emergence was unintentional, but I do not believe that to be the case. Many powerful players stand to benefit from the emergence of a pandemic , especially one with the 'genetic history' necessary to establish plausible deniability on the occasion the virus 'spontaneously' becomes more virulent. A short list of of such entities and their potential objectives is provided in the second-to-last section of this article. For further research regarding the emergence of swine flu ,its genetic structure, and potential players involved, I suggest reviewing the work of Bill Sardi, who has his papers published on Lew

Co-creator of Tamiflu says 'swine flu' was created in a lab


Some may not be aware, but our government has spent immense amounts of money resurrecting the deadly 1918 flu virus which killed millions of people. This terrible plague was lost to history – prior to the work of Dr. Jeffrey Taubenberger at the US Army Institute of Molecular Pathology. Approximately one decade ago, teams affiliated with the US government began digging up deceased individuals who were preserved in the Alaskan permafrost – individuals who died from the previously-extinct lethal flu from 1918. The fragments of viral RNA were combined from various dead bodies, in order to get the full spectrum of genetic material necessary to rebuild the deadly 1918 virus. These mad scientists used OUR TAX MONEY to sequence the RNA from a constellation of genes belonging to this extraordinary lethal flu, in order to reconstruct it. Once the entire deadly 1918 virus was sequenced, it was reconstructed from scratch using the process of reverse-genetics, and then active reconstructed 1918 viral particles were inoculated into animals – including primates --in order to study their incredibly 'lethal' effects and destruction of lung tissue. The government has spent a huge amount of money on programs closely related to weaponization of influenza.

Multiple studies were published by the US Army / Ft. Dietrick team, with most articles with abstracts freely accessible in NIH Pubmed, and many co-authored by Dr. Jeffrey Taubenberger at the US Army BSL3/BSL4 (Biosafety Level 3/4) laboratories. One of these studies involved comparing the X-ray crystal structure of the 1918 virus hemaglutinin to H5N1 (bird flu) hemaglutinin, which is a curious topic to study, unless you are attempting to create lethal pandemic flu. This is stepping so close to biological weapons research I am astonished this much was published. If you think this Army program was somehow not involved in weaponization of influenza, then I have a bridge to sell you in Brooklyn. They were obviously involved with weapons research. If and how the current 'pandemic' is related is up for debate.

Of course, the latest 2009 gems from these various scientific psychopaths include a study published this fall titled “Resurrected Pandemic Influenza Viruses.” In this study, the mad-scientist brain-trust affiliated with Taubenberger uses big research money funneled out from Uncle Sugar's loving tentacles, and constructs recombinant pandemic viruses in order to determine the amino acid changes responsible for virulence (lethality). In other words, these individuals are being paid to study how to make influenza more deadly. Why?

The whole point of this idiocy is that it's somewhat like Jurassic Park. If you do not resurrect the Velociraptor, you do not have to worry about it killing you. So why resurrect the Velociraptor? Is this not foolish? Or perhaps money talks, and Uncle Sugar likes his weapons, regardless of form or function.

Are Poland and Austria at the forefront of an undeclared biological war?

Monday, 16 November 2009 23:05
Eyewitness reports from Poland and Austria indicate that both countries are being subjected to new kinds of aerosol spraying by aircraft.

This seems to be an attempt to trigger a pandemic in the same way as occurred in the Ukraine recently when pneumonia plague emerged after reports of night time aerosol spraying by low flying planes.

Three aircraft flying in formation were seen at night time in Klagenfurt one month ago apparently on a spraying operation.

New types of spraying were seen in eastern and southern Austria today.

This excellent video shows heavy Aircraft spraying on 15.11.2009 over Lower Austria, and should remove any doubt from the minds of those who do not yet believe.
Maybe someone can identify the red-nosed aircraft (we'll call it Rudolph for now), and let either myself or Jane Burgomeister know.


If one examines the charts posted at the beginning of this article, it becomes apparent the Ukraine outbreak begins approximately Oct 28 – 30, 2009 if we are to believe the official statistics. Additionally , we know the Ukrainian government's daily statistical updates began on October 28th 2009, when the rate of infections began to increase from a previously established baseline. What is curious is that this time frame coincides with reports of low-altitude aerial spraying in areas where the virus spread the most rapidly, particularly the Lviv region. In fact, reports to the Ukrainian government regarding low-altitude aerial spraying around Halloween reached such a high incidence, the government was forced to issue an official denial that were any aerial 'flu reduction operations' in progress.

So the question becomes, what exactly was going on here? What were eyewitnesses observing? Was something being sprayed? Could the spraying have the objective of modulating flu infectivity? Clearly something interesting was going on if the government was forced to issue an official denial and with hundreds of eyewitness reports.

Ukraine Reports of Overhead Aerosol Spraying

On October 31, Kiev newspaper editors got dozens of calls about light planes doing aerosol spraying during the day. In refuting the claims, the district's Emergency Response office said "no permission had been granted for small aviation aircraft to fly within the city limits." Yet eye-witness accounts from Lviv, Ternopil, and other Ukraine cities said the same thing.

Authorities in Kiev, Ukraine, deny spraying of “aerosolized medication” by aircraft over city.

The Office for Emergency Situations Desniansko district of Kyiv denies reports that in the metro "Forest" with the help of aviation dissipated funds against influenza.

Earlier today, the city rumors that over the market near the metro station "Forest" flying the plane, spraying some way from the "swine" influenza. The caller to the editors of newspapers in Kiev "forest residents reported that they or their friends or relatives of people here have seen circling over the aircraft market. It was also reported that retailers were encouraged to stay in tents.

The administration of the market "Forest" strongly refuted this information.

In Gosaviadministratsii correspondent "Newspapers in Kiev was told that any permission to fly to the city limits of small aviation aircraft today are not issued.

For information on spraying means against influenza is also refuted in the Directorate of Health of the city.

However, such rumors are being discussed in Internet forums Lviv, Ternopil and other cities.

Interesting, huh? So on Oct 31, local Ukrainian government authorities advise people to stay indoors because of anti-flu spraying, which is then followed by eyewitness reports and complaints to Kyiv and Lviv authorities of light aircraft spraying aerosols, which is then followed by repeated strong denials from government higher-ups... Indeed, the plot thickens. The question is rather, are these facts relevant to the situation? Related? Just rumors? I simply do not know. Your guess is as good as mine. Just another piece to the puzzle. Our job is to determine if it fits.


Last year, Chicago-based Baxter Pharmaceutical sent deadly contaminated flu vaccine to multiple sub-contractor laboratories in multiple countries – to include , at minimum Czech Republic, Slovania, Austria, and Germany. Baxter's vaccine product was represented as H3N2 “seasonal flu” vaccine material – but this product that was somehow “accidentally” contaminated with the 30-80% deadly H5N1 'bird flu'. Theoretically, this could have caused a terrible global plague had this egregious mistake not been caught by a sub-sub-contractor called Biotest in the Czech Republic , who by a miracle decided to inject their animals, and noticed all their laboratory ferrets contracted lethal illness after testing Baxter's deadly vaccine material.

Here is the relevant Bloomberg article from Feb 24, 2009:

Baxter Sent Bird Flu Virus to European Labs by Error

Feb. 24 (Bloomberg) -- Baxter International Inc. in Austria unintentionally contaminated samples with the bird flu virus that were used in laboratories in three neighboring countries, raising concern about the potential spread of the deadly disease.

Again: Last year, Baxter sent out seasonal flu vaccine material to labs around the world , vaccine material which was somehow 'accidentally' mixed with deadly H5N1 bird flu! If humans had been inadvertently exposed to this vaccine material, they could have easily contracted fatal bird flu and potentially spread it to others, resulting in a lethal global pandemic. This should never have happened, but Baxter has offered no explanation for their actions, nor the sequence of events which resulted in this deadly incident – where restricted H5N1 bird flu virus somehow left their secure facilities ,and ended up in seasonal flu vaccine material. Insanity!

Here is a diagram of what actually happened:

Now again, this should NEVER happen, because these pathogens are normally handled under BSL3 (Biosafety Level 3) procedures. Thirty-seven people at Biotest in the Czech Republic spent the month in quarantine because of Baxter's criminal idiocy. At the very least, Baxter's vaccine bird flu contamination was criminally negligent. No individuals at Baxter have been brought to justice for this potentially deadly incident.

And this is not the last time you will find Baxter connected with deadly flu...


Given that I run in the Internet underworld, I do have the scoop on this interesting story. In August 2009, a patriot radio host (Dr. A True Ott) on Republic Broadcast Network (RBN) received a phone call from an unidentified man with a thick Middle-Eastern accent. The man claimed to have knowledge of a large Baxter production facility in Ukraine, which he claimed was involved in producing biological weapons – particularly in the form vaccines contaminated with biologically active RNA from the H5N1 virus (sound familiar?). See above. The man claimed Baxter would eventually provoke a lethal global flu pandemic.

Now, as a radio host, Dr. Ott gets a fair amount of random phone calls, so he took what was mentioned by this mysterious caller with a grain of salt. Now the man , who turned out to be Israeli virus scientist Dr. Joseph Moshe, asked Dr. Ott where he could turn in evidence – including documents – regarding Baxter's involvement in influenza weaponization programs, particularly through their Ukrainian production facility. Dr. Ott asked the man his location – to which the caller replied 'Southern California' – so Ott told the mysterious caller (Joseph Moshe) that he would be best off taking the documents to a US Attorney's office in downtown Los Angeles.

The VERY NEXT DAY the following televised standoff occurs in the parking lot outside the LA Federal Building. Microwave weapons. Tear gas robots. Swat Teams. The works. You have to watch the video to believe it. The media and Feds claimed Joseph Moshe made threats against the White House. Are you kidding me? I don't buy it. This guy was a threat to someone's agenda. Watch this video of the incredible level of force used against this unassuming Israeli plant scientist, and judge for yourself what you believe.

Incidentally, here is Joseph Moshe's biography.

Moshe hasn't been heard from him since this incident – we assume he is dead. The connections between Moshe, Baxter, Ukraine, biological weapons research, and influenza, and the overwhelming use of force (microwave weapons, etc) certainly gives me pause as to what is going on here. Moshe fingered Ukraine as the source of a potential outbreak in August 2009 – months before we see what appears to be the spread of a stronger more deadly flu strain in the country he named. I suppose we are lucky that this time it does not involve Baxter's H5N1.


Anyone who carefully studies the world we live in , with an appetite for the truth and a discerning eye, will quickly realize we have been sold a false bill of goods. A pack of lies, if you will. The truth is, Governments are incredibly corrupt, and they are getting worse. Large Banks are criminal enterprises. Politicians are for show, and are generally bribed or blackmailed. There are only a handful of individuals who are not morally compromised.

When sufficient excavation of the facade of modern civilization is conducted, it becomes clear we are dealing with international money power – a global criminal syndicate consisting of corrupt multi-billionaires and their associates acting in their own criminal interests. Their objective is nothing less than to impose a form of neo-feudalism of the countries upon the world.

Sound hard to believe? Take a look at the actions of Bernanke, Paulson, or the SEC. These are the actions of individuals and institutions representing a corrupt purpose and objective, not simply academics who are incompetent. This same pattern of corruption we see in global finance is repeated across the board, from defense contractors to pharmaceutical companies.

Take a look at the resemblance of the current trend towards privatized profits and socialized losses. This is a business model that would fit quite well in Italy in 1933. We move closer and closer towards the model of global corporatism as international financiers consolidate their power and ownership through public-private monopolies. All that is missing is a new war. The plague is obviously on its way , whether sooner or later.

Ultimately , as we mentioned, the objective is global neo-feudalism and the destruction nation-states through various methods (war, poverty, famine, plague, etc). This is all crystal clear in Henry Kissinger's National Security Study Memo 200, which advocates forced depopulation of the third world in order to maintain the narrow political objectives of a corrupt elite.

While their objectives are complex, their methods are much simpler.

Part of this policy is depopulation. Which is why we can expect war, disease, and famine in the coming years. This will not be blind chance. This will be political policy.


In this article, I attempted to review all aspects of a potential flu epidemic in Ukraine. There are various puzzle pieces which have accumulated, and I have attempted to paint a picture of a rather dark reality which many will not be familiar with. My objective is not to frighten anyone, but simply to force the hand of the global authorities towards a more sensible outcome through deliberate media exposure.

We appear to have a new strain of influenza in Ukraine-- but this is not the only possibility. A new strain of H1N1 influenza is simply the best explanation at this point in time. We may also be dealing with false statistics from the Ukrainian government coupled with rumors. There are other explanations as well. As we go forward, information will slowly become more available – outside the channels of criminal authorities, who know their time is short.

We must remember never to tolerate corruption and evil, lest it consume the beauty mankind has worked so hard to construct.

Stockpiling Deals Link Baxter to CIA & Carlyle Group:

Politics and Science Condemns Official Flu Response

Los Angeles—Profitable politics and lacking science condemns governmental preparations to administer “required” flu vaccines and drugs this year according to new evidence linking Tamiflu maker, Gilead Sciences, and flu vaccine producer, Baxter Corporation, to Carlyle Group investors and the CIA.

According to findings of conflicting interests discovered by governmental watchdog, Dr. Leonard Horowitz, as reported on the web’s most indignant flu-news source,, profits from the unprecedented unproven flu vaccinations and Tamiflu sales this season for “biodefense” condemns high-profile officials and drug industrialists involved with the CIA and the Carlyle Group.

“The CIA-influenced media is obviously being used to hype threats of death this year along with this obviously laboratory-created mutant flu,” Dr Horowitz said. “Follow the money and you realize all roads lead through the CIA to top officials in the companies profiting most from stockpiles of poorly tested, virtually experimental, “fast-tracked” vaccines and toxic Tamiflu.”

Many people are aware of Donald Rumsfeld’s ties to Tamiflu’s licensor, Gilead Sciences.

The past Secretary of the US Department of Defense, credited by journalist Bob Woodward for pushing George H.W. Bush out of politics and into the role of CIA director, co-founded Gilead Sciences, the source of Tamiflu. Rumsfeld, 1989-2005, was chief Defense Contractor for the Carlyle Group—possibly the world’s wealthiest military-medical
investment firm--during which time George W. Bush authorized the purchase of $1 billion of “fast-tracked” Tamiflu, scientifically- certified as highly toxic.

Operating as Carlyle Group’s Vice President today is Brian Canann, a chief strategist for global product management within Baxter International Inc’s spin off company, Edwards Lifesciences. . Reminiscent of the CIA’s “Project Jefferson” (also called “Clearvision”) wherein hyper-weaponized anthrax was first developed at the Battelle Memorial Institute, then assayed by CIA contractors for mass-dispersal via the mail, then mailed two years later following the September, 2001, attacks, Baxter officials are credited for “accidentally”
shipping H5N1 (bioweapons- grade bird flu) contaminated vaccines to several labs in four European countries according to international news reports. Baxter is among a handful of companies producing flu vaccines worth billions of dollars in stockpiling contracts.

Other CIA-Carlyle- linked officials implicated in death-by-injection (i.e.., vaccination) crimes against humanity include George H.W. Bush, Frank C. Carlucci, and Henry Kissinger, as reported previously in Dr. Horowitz’s published books and films, including In Lies We Trust: The CIA, Hollywood & Bioterrorism. (Tetrahedron Films, 2008)

*IMPORTANT NOTE: Even if you are among the 142,408 people who have already
taken action against these bills, we urge you, and every member of your
family and circle of contacts, and urge you in the strongest possible terms,
to do so again since the Action Item has now been amended to reflect the
passage of HR 2749 on July 30, 2009. Our voices nearly defeated the whole
bill, since we were able to cause two failed attempts on the previous days
before this bill was ramrodded through the House. *

*Now it is the Senate's turn: if passed by the Senate, this Food Fascism
Bill will guarantee the loss of clean, healthy food and independent farming
in the US and the complete, note, COMPLETE industrialization of the US food
supply. *

*Now the question is "What will the Senate do?"*

*You can email the Health Education Labor and Pension (HELP) Committee and
your Senators here:
help_comments@ help.senate. gov*

*(The Action Item also goes to the HELP Committee and to your Senators).*

*Some Success Already*

*We have managed to get some protective exemptions into the bill for small
farmers who sell food directly to consumers or to restaurants, but they are,
frankly, weak and will not be enough to protect your food or our farmers.
But the Senate bill has much weaker protections, just mentioning minor
exemptions for restaurants once and farms twice.*

*We need to rally people immediately to submit this letter to the Senate and
contact their Senators to demand accountable voting on this bill.*

*The Obama administration is pushing new farm controls which will drive
small and independent farmers off the land, literally leaving the field to
Agribiz, (implementing all of Codex through complete HARMonization and
allowing the FDA to declare Marshal law) through Congress as fast as
possible and have coordinated the bills so there will be no debate and
committee meetings are closed.*

*Change We Can Believe In?*

*Transparency, change, undoing Bush's regulations, giving the public time to
comment, grassroots anything? None are visible in the current legislative
process. *

*Our entire food system, and thus our health, is being given to the last
people with any interest in quality or safety: Big Abgribiz. This is going
on in the absence of public scrutiny. Those who do know what is happening,
of course, have zero access to the process and to the major media.
Meanwhile, the media is absent while Congress is moving at warp speed to sew
this up.*

*There will be no direct, frontal assault on organic farming but an
insidious process of "infecting" organic farming with regulations,
"traceability" requirements, required practices and prohibitions enforced by
truly draconian fines and prision terms for even minor offenses running to
hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars and 8 years in prison for minor

*Example: imagine Joel Salatin's wonderful organic farm under the direction
of the USDA, with detailed instructions on what he must feed and when, how
he must medically "treat" his animals and with what, what he must "spray"
and when, … you get the picture. These bills will industrialize all farms
and insure the farmers are forced to buy chemicals and drugs. Organic is
dead. As well as human control over the food supply. As well as health.*

*H.R. 2749 includes a weak exemption for farmer to consumer or restaurant
sales because of the Push Back we generated. But the bill has now passed the
House and it is imperative that it NOT pass the Senate. More Push Back is
needed for more protection for farmers, gardeners, community farming, all
local food production (including yours!) and food processing.*

*We have prepared the below Petition to Congress for you to send to your
Senators via the Action Item.*

*For Health and Freedom,*

*Ralph Fucetola JD
Natural Solutions Foundation Trustee*


*To Amend S.510 or Any Food Safety Modernization Act or Similar Bill By the
Addition of the
Natural and Family Food and Farming Exclusion Amendment

T*o: The Members of the Senate of the United States of America:*

*Whereas the proposed Food Safety Administration within the Department of
Health and Human Services should focus its activities on the significant
public administration issues involving the capacity of large scale,
industrialized agriculture to threaten public safety,*

*Whereas organic and natural agriculture, family farms and ranches, and
natural or organic food products, including dietary supplements are not a
significant part of the food safety problem, and*

*Whereas Congress previously provided for an exemption for natural food
dietary supplements from the increased agency authority granted by the FDA
Modernization Act of 2007, through a rule of interpretation, added as
section 1011 of that Act, and has on numerous occasions exempted small and
family farms from the same level of regulation as has been deemed necessary
in the case of industrialized agriculture, *

*The citizens ascribing to this Petition therefore hereby request that any
Food Safety Modernization Act identical or similar to HR 2749 be defeated,
or that it, or any substitute for it be amended to exclude organic and
natural agriculture, family farms and ranches, and natural or organic food
products, including dietary supplements, through a rule of interpretation,
as follows:*

*"Rule of Interpretation*

*"No provision of this act shall be deemed to apply (a) to any home,
home-business, homestead, home or community gardens, small farm, organic or
natural agricultural activity, (b) to any family farm or ranch, or (c) to
any natural or organic food product, including dietary supplements regulated
under the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994."*

*We also note the language of the Fair Labor Standards Act, 29 USC sec 203
(s) (2) which provides, "(2) Any establishment that has as its only regular
employees the owner thereof or the parent, spouse, child, or other member of
the immediate family of such owner shall not be considered to be an
enterprise engaged in commerce or in the production of goods for commerce or
a part of such an enterprise…" Language such as this would be helpful to
allay our concerns.*

*If the FDA Center for Food Safety is to be moved into a new Food Safety
Agency, then Dietary Supplements, regulated as foods under the Dietary
Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA) should be included in such
agency, with the proviso that such substances, as foods, are deemed safe
when used as directed.*

Furthermore, the ascribing citizens Petition the Congress of the United
States to declare it the public policy of the United States that organic and
natural agriculture, home and community gardens, family farms and ranches,
and natural or organic food products, including dietary supplements shall be
at all times free from suit, vexation, trouble, penalty, or loss of their
goods, for the inestimable values they confer upon the public.

Current And Former IMF Heads Call For New Global Currency
Global financial body wants complete overhaul as soon as possible

Steve Watson
Tuesday, Nov 17, 2009

The head of the International Monetary Fund has once again called for a new global currency to replace the Dollar, adding that the momentum to instigate such a system is fading.

Dominique Strauss-Kahn told a forum on Tuesday that he wishes to see an emboldened IMF pave the way for the emergence of a global currency based on the monetary body's special drawing right (SDR).

“That probably has to be a basket,” Strauss-Kahn said of the eventual replacement for the dollar. “In a globalized world there is no domestic solution,” he added.

The IMF head said that the world can no longer rely on a currency issued by a single country to ensure global financial stability.

Strauss-Kahn also said that China should re-value its currency in order to straighten out global economic distortions and imbalances.

Strauss-Kahn said that since the G20 summit in March, where agreements were made to reform the global monetary system, political willingness to carry out such an overhaul has waned.

Former IMF chief, Michel Camdessus, added that "time is of the essence" for global monetary reform. Camdessus said that he backs a shift of power to big emerging economies to act as a corollary of a strengthened role for the SDR.

“This favourable window of opportunity is there. It will not stay open forever,” Camdessus told the forum.

The IMF first touted the possibility of a new global currency in March. The issue was then debated at the G20 Summit in London just days later.

A clause in Point 19 of the communiqué issued by the G20 leaders led to analysts describing the dawn of a "revolution in the global financial order."

"We have agreed to support a general SDR allocation which will inject $250bn (£170bn) into the world economy and increase global liquidity," The clause stated.

SDRs are Special Drawing Rights, a synthetic paper currency issued by the International Monetary Fund that had lain dormant for half a century.

"In effect, the G20 leaders have activated the IMF's power to create money and begin global 'quantitative easing'. In doing so, they are putting a de facto world currency into play. It is outside the control of any sovereign body. Conspiracy theorists will love it." Ambrose Evans-Pritchard of the London Telegraph wrote at the time.

"The world is a step closer to a global currency, backed by a global central bank, running monetary policy for all humanity." he added.

The same conclusion was drawn by the Washington Post's Anthony Faiola, who described how the IMF is on course to be transformed into "a veritable United Nations for the global economy."

The move has also been endorsed separately by the World Bank and the UN.

G20 leaders attempt to create a New World Order
On September 24 and 25, world leaders from 20 countries met to discuss the global economy and its reformation. The overall message of the summit in Pittsburgh was the plan for a new world order. This would involve reforming the the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank in order to give developing countries more voting power.
According to the G20 research group, "voice reform" in the IMF will establish "the G20 as the new centerer of global economic governance...[which] would finally give the central role to the emerging and established powers... It would treat established and emerging powers as equals."
This would mean reducing IMF seat holders from 24 to 20 but leaving the US shareholding at 17%. In the World Bank, 3% of shareholding would move to developing countries. This change comes less than 2 years after the group added 12 developing countries to the original 8 (7 countries plus the EU).The core G8 countries announced on September 25 that they would not meet separately as an official group. Instead, the group of 8 will hold a separate gathering the night before any G20 event (NBC report).
All of this came a day after the UN General assembly where Security General Ban Ki-Moon called for a time of "Multilateral ism" and "Genuine Collective Action".
But who needs to act and what will the result be? in order to answer these questions we need to understand how the current system has developed.
In 1944, International leaders from 44 countries met in New Hampshire to construct a post-war international monetary system which came to include the creation of the IMF and the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD), together known as the Bretton Woods System. The system established a global exchange rate based on the US dollar which was backed by the gold standard. The American dollar thereby became beneficial for any nation to own. When a developing country was able to increase its exports to the US, it could stockpile foreign (American) currency and invest in domestic production which in turn encouraged employment. The dollar became the chief American export. This constant outward flow of capital was extremely lucrative for the US after WWII.
Even though the dollar was supposedly backed by the gold standard, the US did not limit itself to spending the capital it could exchange for gold, and continued to pay for exports with its deficit. By the late 1950s the world began experiencing a "dollar glut" (saturation of US capital). Today, the global economy has come to rely on a floating exchange rate, meaning the US dollar depreciates when it is not in demand. However, when the dollar was still linked to gold it was unable to adjust its value to cover global inflation. In order to prevent a collapse of foreign confidence and of the US economy, President Richard Nixon suspended the gold standard.
The US dollar is again faced with the threat of losing global confidence. The collapse of major national banks along with the mortgage crisis has proven that the US economy has been paying for world leadership with interest--money it does not and has never possessed. Writing for Time magazine, Justin Fox summarized:
The advantage of having your country's currency as the world's reserve currency is that you don't really have to play by the rules: You can run big deficits financed by the rest of the world, you can spend more than you earn, and to a certain extent you can escape the consequences of your profligacy by devaluing your currency when you run into trouble. The obvious disadvantages are that running big deficits and spending more than you earn aren't really great long-term economic strategies
Until the recent depression, the world has relied on the US as the consumer of last resort-- the demand for other nations' supply. But now that the dollar has depreciated, the rest of the world, including the US, hopes China will supplement the drop in US consumption. A Morgan Stanley report stated "between now and 2018, Chinese consumers are likely to add more to global consumption than U.S. consumers, and that by 2018, Chinese consumers will be spending 40 percent as much as U.S. consumers, up from 16 percent in 2008."
The US seems to believe that Chinese consumption will raise the value of, and consequently demand for, the American dollar, thereby avoiding the need to re-evaluate US hegemony.
Back in March, the People's Bank of China Governor Zhou Xiaochuan proposed a reform to the International monetary system that would replace the current role of the US dollar with an international currency based on the SDR or "Special Drawing Rights" already used by the IMF. The SDR is referred to as a "basket of currencies" because the exchange rate is calculated according to 5 national currencies which are chosen by the IMF every 5 years. SDRs act as a sort of artificial gold standard that other countries can purchase in order to participate in global transactions.
In his statement, Zhou stated
A super-sovereign reserve currency not only eliminates the inherent risks of credit-based sovereign currency, but also makes it possible to manage global liquidity. A super-sovereign reserve currency managed by a global institution could be used to both create and control the global liquidity. And when a country´s currency is no longer used as the yardstick for global trade and as the benchmark for other currencies, the exchange rate policy of the country would be far more effective in adjusting economic imbalances. This will significantly reduce the risks of a future crisis and enhance crisis management capability.
Seven months after this statement was made, the new world order seems to be developing through the struggles of the world’s leading economies to control the flow of capital. Though the incorporation and increased potential for vocalization of developing countries into policy discussions seems to be a step in the right direction, it remains to be seen how this direction will affect the lives of global citizens.

International Monetary Fund Calls For Replacement Of US Dollar As Global Currency

Tensions over two of the world's major currencies are escalating, playing out in economic and political circles as countries make a desperate push for crucial trade dollars.

Visiting China, President Barack Obama said he wants the country to dismantle its currency peg to the U.S. dollar. But while the two countries bicker over the value of the yuan, momentum is building for a replacement for the world's reserve currency.

But International Monetary Fund director Dominique Strauss-Kahn says the days of one country's currency as the global benchmark are numbered. The U.S. dollar remains the currency standard, but globalization demands a new global currency that provides representation for the growing importance of a variety of major economies, Mr. Strauss-Kahn said during a trip to China.

Increasing talk for a new global currency comes as friction mounts between the United States and China over the yuan, whose restrained value helps keep China's exports competitively priced. During his visit to China, President Obama on Tuesday urged China to expose the yuan to market-oriented forces and let it rise.

But aside from fending off pressure to let its currency climb, China has a bigger problem. Its fortunes are inexorably hitched to a faltering U.S. dollar and all the economic challenges that entails, including exploding deficits, lurking inflation and a gusher of easy money that may be hard to cap.

Every time the dollar dips, so too does the value of China's massive and growing foreign exchange reserves – 70 per cent of which, or an estimated $1.6-trillion, are stashed away in various U.S. dollar investments.

It's the classic trap. China's not happy living with the dollar, but it can't live without it.

China's reserves are so large that diversifying out of the dollar and into the euro, or any other currency, isn't feasible because those other markets aren't big enough or deep enough to accommodate its cash. And even a hint that China was poised to dump dollars would send the greenback spiralling further downward, deepening losses on the country's offshore holdings.

The result is that the U.S. and China are caught in “a dangerous game of chicken that could easily spin out of control,” argued Eswar Prasad, a senior fellow at the Washington-based Brookings Institution and a former top IMF official. “A precipitous action by China to shift out of U.S. dollar instruments, or even an announcement of such an intention, could act as a trigger that nervous market sentiments coalesce around, leading to a plunge in bond prices and the value of the U.S. dollar,” Mr. Presad pointed out.

Facing deficits totalling $9-trillion over the next decade, the United States desperately needs China's cash to finance its profligate ways.

None of China's possible escape routes offer much short-term relief. Speaking at a forum in Beijing Tuesday, the IMF's Mr. Strauss-Kahn said the global financial system would be a lot better off if countries embraced the concept of a truly global currency, possibly based on the fund's own accounting unit, the special drawing right or SDR. “That probably has to be a basket,” he said of the eventual replacement for the dollar. “In a globalized world there is no domestic solution.”

Chinese central bank governor Zhou Xiaochuan embraces the idea of morphing the SDR into a new super currency.

But most experts say that's a decade or more away.

“If it does happen, it will take an extended period of time,” said Benjamin Reitzes, an economist BMO Nesbitt Burns in Toronto. “It won't be all of a sudden.”

And if it does happen, the U.S. dollar will still be significant part of the mix, perhaps 50 per cent of any basket, Mr. Reitzes said. “It's not as if they're eliminating the U.S. dollar altogether and we're just going to use the euro instead,” he said.

Even Mr. Strauss-Kahn acknowledged that in the short-term, China should let its yuan strengthen to help smooth out imbalances in the global economy and boost domestic demand. That, in turn, would depress the value of its foreign reserves.

And so for now, China has little choice but to hitch a ride on the Greenback Express, wherever it may go.

“They're going to keep accumulating dollars. That's just the reality,” agreed Charles Freeman, a former assistant U.S. Trade Representative for China, who now holds the China chair at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington.

Indeed, China and other countries boosted their holdings of Treasury bills and other U.S. financial assets in September, the U.S. Treasury Department reported yesterday. China, the largest foreign holder of Treasuries, increased its holdings by $1.8-billion to $798.9-billion.

The Chinese are buying more of a currency in which they have increasingly less faith because they don't have a choice, BMO Nesbitt Burns' Mr. Reitzes said.

“There really is nowhere else to go,” he said. “It's kind of the U.S. dollar by default at this point,” he said.

The SDR isn't yet anything more than an internal IMF exchange unit, the euro has its capacity constraints and the yen's influence is on the wane, along with Japan's relative economic clout.

Ultimately, Mr. Reitzes said the yuan has the best potential to become an alternative to the U.S. dollar as a reserve-like currency. But that means China will have to end its peg to the U.S. dollar and let the yuan float.

“The yuan is the only currency I can see that would challenge the U.S. dollar, but that could be 25 or 30 years away,” Mr. Reitzes said.

Meteor Fireball Turns Night Into Day Across Western US

BOISE - A number of people called our newsroom, e-mailed us, and were talking about it on Twitter.

A meteor streaked across the night sky-- lighting it up as if it were daytime.

The phone was ringing off the hook at Ada County dispatch and the Boise Airport as well.

Some viewers described it as the biggest thing they have ever seen-- with a long flame trailing behind it.

"At first I saw a little bright light, it was yellow, after about five to ten seconds it turned into a giant green fireball that was probably about the size of the moon. It was pretty amazing." said James Callahan. "It did scare me, luckily there were no other cars around me, because it did stop me dead on the road right there."

One person saw it from the WalMart parking lot on Glenwood and said it lit up the entire sky.

KSL, our NBC affiliate in Salt Lake City, reported the ground shaking as it zipped through, one viewer claiming it even shook his outside door open.

Ward Riley was driving when a friend called him to ask if he had seen the meteor.

"When the meteor went over, some lights in Twin Falls went out. A friend of mine was driving through Mountain Home at the same time and he said he noticed some of the light-censored street lights went out." said Ward Riley. "It was so bright, at first I thought maybe the wind hit a transformer and exploded it but it was a lot brighter than that. It was like the morning sun had just come up over the hill."

Riley said both of them noticed several light-censored street lamps turn off in Twin Falls and Mountain Home because the flash was so bright.

An expert says the earth is passing the Leonid Meteor Shower, which is one of the most spectacular meteor showers that can be seen each year.

The meteor was seen as far north as Wyoming, and as far west as California and south into Colorado.

February of 2008 was the last time there was a meteor sighting in the Treasure Valley.

My name is Keith Pantaleon and I live in Newark, NJ and on my way to the post office on clinton St., I passed the US Army recruiting station. To my shock and horror, openly displayed was a Playstation 3 with the new first person shooter 'Modern Warfare 2', this was place there to entice the youngest in our population to how 'cool' it is to be in the military. Also how cool it is to pull false flag terror attacks murdering innocent Russians at an airport to kickoff World War 3 or 4 if you subscribe to the Cold War as being World War 3. I want to leave this last note in your mind, don't let this incident go with voicing your opposition to such disgraceful tactics by our once proud military. PsyOps(psychologica l operations) is to used against the enemy, do the men & women at this recruiting station realize they are saying that the ones they targeting for recruitment are being designated as the enemy?
