Hey Bardo just a quick note about this bird flu deal question is: fear mongers OR legitimate concern OR population control? Heard RUMORS they want to thin the playing field! If thats the case better head for the hills! BUT im bettin its the FEAR MONGERS just playing the distraction game like papa bush did with Clinton while everybody was thinkin about billy bobs pecker the boys in the band were drawin up plans for the patriot act(s) you know, where we surrender our liberties for security ( while they leave the freakin borders wide open!) dont get me started or I will go all night long !

Don't know if I ever mentioned it in the many years we have been sharing and investigating, but aeons ago before I went back to University to further my archaeology/Egyptology interests etc, I was in the Veterinary research field, specialising in all things.....Avian diseases LOL
I worked for some years as A senior verterinary research officer for a well known, and respectable international company (Wellcome)..although this was back in the 1970's apart from new drug colloboration and advancement in disease investigations, not much else changes with regards to the actual diseases.
In my humble opinion I offer a very brief personal insight as regards to the current sitrep..please feel free to add to the comments board if you wish.
Birds and homo sapiens have been around for aeons, in fact it is said the flying prehistoric animal, the pterodactyl, is the remnants of the bird we recognise today. Birds, like many other animals and humans, are susceptible to all manner of coughs and sneezes..it would take me all night to list the number of diseases that birds are susceptible to. For instance I worked on the once very prevalent disease in poultry, coccidiosis, a parasitic disease, and a very serious one to the mass poultry producer, causing serious economic loss. However, whilst many other animals may contract coccidiosis, it is HOST SPECIFIC, that is, an infected horse or bird for example, cannot pass it on or catch it from another animal and so on. The same applies to many other avian viral dieases.
Birds are just as susceptible to colds and flu like symptoms as we are, and I have worked in many a poultry house with hundreds of birds coughing and sneezing! poor things..The main problem in recent years appears to be the effects of genetic mutation, that is one species of virus mutating across to another, such as the reported incidents in the H5N1 occurrences.. eg if poultry are mixed with pigs for example, where the pig as acts as an intermediary in passing over to humans.
However, we must look at the facts and up to now the relatively rare incidents/deaths of H5N1 infected humans...eg many millions of birds have been culled, and the number of human deaths relatively low...Which brings me onto the next and main point...
Whilst I recognise that there MAY be further and more widspread incidents, I cannot help feeling that the current trend in genetic mutilation in a number of viral and disease related fields has not helped the situation... as I said earlier, birds and humans have been around for some time on this planet.
In addition, whilst it is prudent to be cautious, don't you think it has been strange/bizarre the way this virus and its associated media following has accelerated in such a short time so as to produce almost mass frezy and panic in certain quarters!!??
Ask yourself these questions...
who is to benefit from such outcomes?? drug companies? and one in particular who we all know has close ties to certain members of US government etc
Who is benefiting from the resulting physical control measures? not we as citizens that is for sure....restriction in movement/transport... what next? as if we did not know..eg curtailment of freedom of movement etc
No more "free range" eggs? from free range birds
Mass depopulation in the poultry and bird population in general? this would seriously affect the natural harmony and balance of nature... birds in the wild control further animals, whilst geese and ducks are excellent grazers
Why has India been prevented from producing the tamiflu at next to nothing costs..hmm well we all know the answer to that one..LOL
As I said earlier, this is merely a short personal perspective, and I will be following the pro's and cons attentively over the coming weeks..
More to come....

There was a show on PBS, about the people of Vietnam. Apparently , many people keep chickens at home and when ONE DIES, they cook it up and eat it. They focused a story of one family were the mother died of the Avian Flu. All the household members ate the chicken , which died after being Ill, but the mother who slaughtered it was the only who became ill and died. Has anyone else seen this show? It was a BBC broadcast on PBS.

You will find information regarding the Federal Pandemic Influenza Plan at the website shown below. This information comes from NACCHO.
Sent: Wed Nov 02 11:11:04 2005
Subject: Pandemic Influenza Plan
Pat Libbey.is travelling and has asked me to update you on the release of the pandemic influenza plan and NACCHO's activities. Yesterday morning, Pat was invited with other public health leaders to confer directly with HHS Secretary Leavitt prior to the plan's release, and he was also present at President Bush's announcement. As you are probably aware, the national strategy released yesterday and the more specific HHS plan released this morning are available on a newly-established federal website, http://pandemicflu.gov.
We are reviewing the HHS plan and expect to release a statement soon. Dr. Archer has been responding to inquiries from the national press. A highlight of NACCHO's statement will be the discrepancy between the substantial responsibilities of local health departments and the funding made available to fulfill them. Many press reports are picking up on misleading statements made yesterday about the Administration's $7.1 billion funding request for pandemic influenza. We have the detailed budget request in hand, and it is clear that the sum proposed to augment state and local public health preparedness is $100 million. This contrasts with various Administration statements that either $583 or $644 million are proposed for that purpose. Those higher figures include sums for various activities in disease surveillance, communications, acquisition of materials for the SNS, etc, that will be retained at the federal level. In view of the Administration's earlier proposed $130 million cut in state/local public health preparedness funding, an additional amount of $100 million would still result in a net loss of funds in FY 2006. We have been highlighting these issues in our work on Capitol Hill this week, where multiple hearings on the plan are taking place. (I might add that we are finding it necessary to take particular care that "Pat Libbey" is distinguished from "Scooter Libby.")
Another issue of concern that is not immediately apparent concerns financing of antiviral purchases. The proposed budget provides for federal purchase of 24 million courses and for federal subsidy of 25% of the costs of state purchases of an additional 31 million courses. This raises significant concerns about the impact on state public health budgets of an additional $500 million+ plus obligation for antiviral purchases, and how to address allocation and distribution if some states choose to stockpile antivirals and others do not.
The Executive Committee has been invited to join a teleconference arranged by ASTHO for state health officers with Dr. Gerberding later this week, and she is expected also to discuss the plan with the NACCHO-ASTHO Joint Council next week. Secretary Leavitt indicated that he plans to work directly with local and state public health officials as the plan moves forward. NACCHO expects, therefore, to engage fully in constructive communications with the Secretary and Dr. Gerberding about the plan in the coming weeks and months.
As always, we're happy to respond to your questions and concerns. Thanks, Donna

It sounds more like a police state action than helping people.
All of these actions won't really stem an outbreak, but it looks more like a test to check the validity and strength of a police state, in case of emergency. Corrale the people, and take over everything else.

I thought you might be interested in this:
I've been reading a series of sci-fi novels by Hogan. His daughter lives across the street from me and she turned me onto them. It's his series of "Giants" novels. They're quite good. I'm having a great time reading them.
Anyway, in "Giants' Star" he writes:
"You can trace the same basic struggle right down through history...two opposed ideologies - the feudalism of the aristocracies on one side, and the republicanism of the artisans, scientists, and city-builders on the other." He's talking the old use of "republicanism" - not intended to reference the current political party, of course. Hogan continues, "You had it with the slave economies of the ancient world, the intellectual oppressions of the Church in Europe in the Middle Ages, the colonialism of the British Empire, and, later on, Eastern Communism and Western consumerism...The last thing you want is an educated, affluent, and emancipated population. Power hinges on the restriction and control of wealth...Knowledge and reason are enemies; myth and unreason are the weapons you fight them with."
Interesting and succinct, wouldn't you say?

Kent, An update to the chemtrail induced-simulated flu pandemic ushering in martial law and the forced vaccinations that would immediately follow; these injections mandated under manufactured false pretenses could very well be the primary component of a binary weapon system. The secondary component, which could produce results ranging anywhere from incapacitation to death, could be delivered by a variety of means including another vaccination, through the water or food supply, chemtrail, or an electromagnetic pulse from either the cell tower system in the targeted area or a mobile unit.
|Another possible secondary component could be by means of cyclotronic energy radiated from a device centrally located in major population centers!!!! So-called FLASHRADAR RINGS [see: ipels.html natural cyclotron?] could well be the result of the periodic low power test firing of a compact cyclotron. Cyclotronic action has the effect of exponentially magnifying the potential of toxins that may be present in the human body. For example, the relatively small amount of sodium fluoride in the water, although extremely detrimental to the human system even at those levels, is not fatal. Once exposed to cyclotronic action however, these relatively miniscule amounts would suddenly be magnified to the point of causing immediate death. The primary component of a lethal binary weapon may well have already been delivered!!|
The plutocratic elite are pulling out all the stops as their window of opportunity rapidly closes due to the mass awakening that is taking place amongst the targeted population an awareness which is growing radically every day thanks to the internet. Oppressive population control schemes attributable to the elite, that call for incremental implementation over protracted periods of time are almost certainly disinformation. The Lucifer worshipping plutocratic elite are being backed into a corner and they know that their time is short. They must act very soon if for no other reason than out of frustration and vengeance towards the rest of us whom they so intensely hate and seek to wipe off the face of the earth.
As in all combat operations, besides the truth, communications is the first casualty of any offensive! Expect to see perturbations in, and eventually a complete shutdown of, the internet just prior to the coming final assault by the NWO on what is left of the American middle class!

There's a Billion people in China. Add tat to all of South East Asian population. About 120 people were infected. About 60 died. So the odds of getting the bird flu is about 120in a Billion. Odds of dying from the flu is 60out of billion. Right? Does that make sense?
In 1980's, there was an outbreak in Japan. I remember it. I am from Japan. We had a scare and chicken prices were higher than beef. You know how much a steak cost in Japan Back ten? About $300.00 per pound. My mom was so scared she didn't eat chicken for 2 years. We had beef, fish and pork. More beef was available , and at a lower cost. Japan was importing beef like crazy!!! What's scarier than Bird Flu? Mad Cow. Japan's Alzheimer's rate steadily increased since the 1980's. Right around the time Beef was imported from USA and other countries. Coincidence? I think not.

11/3/2005 6:29:54 A.M. Pacific Standard Time
Kent, Dont know if I read it on your site or elsewhere, but one scenario calls for the dispersal of a chemical agent (chemtrail) that produces flu-like symptoms to which Uncle Scams (NWO) response will be quarantine, martial law, gun confiscation and finally forced injections of deadly vaccines designed to cull the population!!!! The flu-like symptoms caused by the chemical spray will wear off in a few days with no major ill effects, however, the targeted population will have been subdued by then.
This plan was chosen over nuking major cities because it was more controllable, wouldnt damage infrastructure and could be incrementally implemented section by section over the entire country using a relatively small armed force (150,000 NATO on U.S. standby from now until January of next year).
|The Luciferian plutocratic elite are all too well aware it is high noon
at the Not OK American Corral and it has come down to them or us!!!! They
realize that they have been exposed for all the evil they have visited upon
the peoples of this earth for generations and that humanity will rise up
and destroy them if they dont destroy us first!!!!
Prince Charles and his ho Camillas recent visit is no small coincidence. They are drooling at the mouth in anticipation of reclaiming America for the British Crown!!!!

We all seen this coming. We all knew about Bird Flu over a year ago, and yet they did nothing to prepare then... They obviously wanted this to happen.
And with the rest of the world ill-prepared, what exactly is being done with this 'melting pot' of america?
I would also be concerned about what 'other restrictions' he is going to engineer... War, Climate, Terrorism and Disease... will we see emergency powers put up before congress to remain in office?
Bush Announcing Strategy to Battle Flu
November 01, 2005 10:14 AM EST
WASHINGTON - The Bush administration, battered by criticism over its hurricane response, is getting the nation prepared for a possible travel ban and other restrictions in the event of a worldwide flu outbreak.
Improving vaccines is expected to take center stage as President Bush announces his strategy Tuesday to battle the next flu pandemic, whether it is caused by the worrisome Asian bird flu or some other super-strain of influenza. Preparations are expected to cost at least $6.5 billion.
States and cities are awaiting their first specific instructions on such things as who should get limited doses of vaccines and the antiviral medications Tamiflu or Relenza.
Topping that list are workers involved in manufacturing flu vaccine, health workers caring for the ill, and other first responders such as police and ambulance drivers, said a public health specialist shown a recent version of the plan.
The principal goal of Bush's plan, Health and Human Services Secretary Michael Leavitt said Tuesday, "is the capacity for every American to have a vaccine in the case of a pandemic, no matter what the virus is."
"There is no reason to believe that in the next day or two or week or month that that's going to occur," Leavitt said on CBS's "The Early Show." But he added that "we do need to be ready in case it begins to mutate into a human transmissable disease."
In his speech Tuesday at the National Institutes of Health, Bush will first note that it will take more than the federal government to battle a super-flu, said White House spokesman Trent Duffy.
"America has this tough-it-out strategy when you get sick," Duffy said. "You aren't helping yourself or the country going to work when you get ill. You are potentially threatening a greater health issue if you send children to school when they are sick."
Pandemics strike when the easy-to-mutate influenza virus shifts to a strain that people have never experienced before, something that has happened three times in the last century. While it is impossible to say when the next super-flu will strike, concern is growing that the bird flu strain known as H5N1 could trigger one if it mutates to start spreading easily among people. Since 2003, at least 62 people in Southeast Asia have died from H5N1; most regularly handled poultry.
The nation's strategy starts with attempting to spot an outbreak abroad early and working to contain it before it reaches the United States.
International cooperation "represents a best hope of stopping the lightning spread of a pandemic," Duffy said.
There is a possibility that a pandemic would force restrictions of international travel and commerce, he said - one reason the plan will stress improved vaccine manufacturing here.
Today, most of the world's vaccine against regular winter flu, including much of that used by Americans each flu season, is manufactured in factories in Britain and Europe.
The government already has ordered $162.5 million worth of vaccine to be made and stockpiled against the Asian bird flu, more than half to be made in a U.S. factory.
But the administration plan, to be released in more detail on Wednesday, calls for more than stockpiling shots. It will stress a new method of manufacturing flu vaccines - growing the virus to make them in easy-to-handle cell cultures instead of today's cumbersome process that uses millions of chicken eggs - as well as incentives for new U.S.-based vaccine factories to open.
Such steps will take several years to implement, but the hope is that eventually they could allow production of enough vaccine to go around within six months of a pandemic's start.
"The notion is that prevention beats therapy," said Dr. William Schaffner of Vanderbilt University, an influenza specialist who advises the government on vaccination and has received some information about the plan.
Hoping to spur the long-awaited pandemic plan, the Senate last week passed $8 billion in emergency funding for Bush to spend on the preparations.
Also I found it amusing that The Governator here in california made a public address apologizing to the people for not being the best Governor, and learning on the job... and also wanted the people to vote on his new reforms...
When they start making 'special elections and votes' and apologize to the people... They're finished. It's game over.
Just something to think about. They're about to fall hard... but in the process a lot of us are going to die.
Peace be the journey.

Who profits from bird flu hysteria? Donald Rumsfeld!
As Sploid reported on Oct. 24, Pentagon chief Donald Rumsfeld had an interesting job before George W. Bush put him back in the Pentagon in 2001: Rumsfeld was chairman of the pharmaceutical giant that patented ... Tamiflu!
Now, Fortune Magazine has revealed that Rummy holds a stake in Gilead Sciences worth up to $25 million, and that the current avian flu hysteria has already earned him a cool million dollars.
Today, as Rumsfeld gives a live "briefing" on CNN telling Americans to get used to the slaughter of U.S. troops in Iraq by the thousands and Bush launches his administration's plans for a full-scale American flu pandemic, there is exactly one patented and incredibly profitable drug that could possibly prevent or deflect full symptoms of a human-transmitted version of the Avian Flu, and Rumsfeld himself is getting richer with every hysterical prescription filled.
The Mafia and the Colombian drug cartels could only dream of such total control of supply and demand.
Roche produces Gilead's cash cow Tamiflu, and sales are through the roof:
Roche last week said it had temporarily suspended sales of Tamiflu in countries including the U.S., Canada, Germany and Switzerland to fill government contracts and ensure availability at the start of the traditional flu season. Roche said each country unit is deciding whether to take the action based on supply.
U.S. drug stores filled more than 221,000 prescriptions for Tamiflu during the 10 weeks ended Oct. 21, more than five times the year-earlier total of almost 41,000, according to data released Oct. 26 by Verispan LLC, a research company in Yardley, Pennsylvania.
But Rumsfeld isn't the only member of this GOP-pharmaceutical elite. Nixon-Reagan-Bush I-Bush Jr. insider George Shultz is on Gilead's board and "has sold more than $7 million worth of Gilead since the beginning of 2005." Former California Gov. Pete Wilson's wife is also on the board.
"I don't know of any biotech company that's so politically well-connected," says analyst Andrew McDonald of Think Equity Partners in San Francisco.
George W. Bush seems giddy at the prospect of turning Rumsfeld's armies loose on the American people should the bird flu suddenly turn into a human-transmitted disease.
The major goal of his Avian Flu Plan is to take away Americans' rights to sue pharmaceutical corporations for making dangerous or even deadly vaccines and medicines.
He's watching out for Rumsfeld and the rest of his super-rich pals, as well: The federal government will spend more than $7 billion on the purchase of Tamiflu and development of a vaccine for a sickness that does not actually exist today. A whole $1 billion is marked specifically for buying government stockpiles of Tamiflu.
Donald Rumsfeld's hands may be dripping with the blood of thousands of American heroes who died on his commands, but he's also the "luckiest" guy in Washington!

Kent, looks very suspicious to me. All those dead micro biologists and then this thing comes along from nowhere, not even passed from human to human yet and now they talk about limiting travel. Ill winds are blowing. A couple of years ago "scientists" were up here in HAARPland digging up graves of the people who died from the 1918 pandemic looking for a virus to copy. Circumstantial evidence paints a very negative view. Regards from HAARPland

Aspartame Gate: When Donald Rumsfeld was CEO of Searle
As calls for US Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld to resign are prompting questions from Senators, about possible breakdowns in the Pentagon chain of command leading to prisoner abuse in Iraq, Betty Martini founder of Mission Possible, an international 'Aspartame resistance' movement, writes to Senator Biden to explain that allowing torture of prisoners in Iraq may not have been the only reprehensible action Rumsfeld should answer for.
Martini says that Aspartame, a toxic sweetener approved against better scientific judgement by an FDA Commissioner personally installed by Rumsfeld when he was working on president Reagan's transition team, is killing thousands and the evidence is being covered up by a pliant FDA. Will Rumsfeld fall over what someone has already called Gulag Gate? - or might he fall victim to the FDA's and his own involvement in what more and more starts to look like Aspartame Gate?
Read Betty Martini's letter to Senator Biden here:

Date: Wed, 05 May 2004 14:26:40 -0400
From: "Dr. Betty Martini"
Subject: Senator Biden, More damning information on Rumsfeld you may not know
Dear Senator Biden:
The news talks about you asking Donald Rumsfeld to step down which has to do with the Iraq situation.
I would like to call your attention to when Donald Rumsfeld was CEO of Searle, manufacturers of aspartame. For 16 years the FDA refused to approve it, not only because its not safe but because they wanted the company indicted for fraud. Both U.S. Prosecutors hired on with the defense team and the statute of limitations expired. They were Sam Skinner and William Conlon. Skinner went on to become Secretary of Transportation squelching the cries of the pilots who were by now having seizures on this seizure triggering drug, aspartame, and then Chief of Staff under President Bush's father. Some of these people reach high places. Even Supreme Justice Clarence Thomas is a former Monsanto attorney. (Monsanto bought Searle in l985, and sold it a few years ago). When Ashcroft became Attorney General, Thompson from King and Spalding Attorneys (another former Monsanto attorney) became deputy under Ashcroft. (Attorneys for NutraSweet and Coke).
However, the FDA still refused to allow NutraSweet on the market. It is a deadly neurotoxic drug masquerading as an additive. It interacts with all antidepressants, L-dopa, Coumadin, hormones, insulin, all cardiac medication, and many others. It also is a chemical hypersensitization drug so that it interacts with vaccines, other toxins, other unsafe sweeteners like Splenda which has a chlorinated base like DDT and can cause autoimmune disease. It has a synergistic and additive effect with MSG. (www.truthinlabeling.org). Both being excitotoxins, the aspartic acid in aspartame, and MSG, the glutamate people were found using aspartame as the placebo for MSG studies, even before it was approved. The FDA has known this for a quarter of a century and done nothing even though its against the law. Searle went on to build a NutraSweet factory and had $9 million worth of inventory.
Donald Rumsfeld was on President Reagan's transition team and the day after he took office he appointed an FDA Commissioner who would approve aspartame. The FDA set up a Board of Inquiry of the best scientists they had to offer, who said aspartame is not safe and causes brain tumors, and the petition for approval is hereby revoked. The new FDA Commissioner, Arthur Hull Hayes, over-ruled that Board of Inquiry and then went to work for the PR Agency of the manufacturer, Burson-Marstaller, at a rumored $1000.00 a day, and has refused to talk to the press ever since. Read the whole story of the history of aspartame at http://www.wnho.net/history_of_aspartame.htm This will tell you everything you need to know. Rumsfeld calling in his markers is even documented in the congressional record!
In order to get it in other countries, Searle made a business deal with Professor Paul Turner in England. They knew if England found out the FDA wanted them indicted for fraud it could never get approved. Parliament found out and there was a big blow out but the order was never rescinded. The story was in the Guardian. Now all they had to do was rubberstamp this deadly poison around the world.
There were three congressional hearings because of the outcry of the people being poisoned. Senator Orrin Hatch refused to allow hearings for a long time. The first hearing was in 1985, and Senator Hatch and others were paid by Monsanto. So the bill by Senator Metzenbaum never got out of committee. This bill would have put a moratorium on aspartame, and [would have] had the NIH do independent studies on the problems being seen in the population, interaction with drugs, seizures, what it does to the fetus and even behavioral problems in children. This is due to the depletion of serotonin caused by the phenylalanine in aspartame.
I spoke to the European Union a couple of years ago and brought them the damning government records so they would know that aspartame was never proven safe. This was at the time they were going to write a new report, again because of the outcry on aspartame. I also gave them some of Monsanto's flawed research and showed them what they had done. You can't show a poison to be safe on studies without fixing them. But those from industry were part of the committee so what the EU did was eliminate all the damning research and use the flawed. They didn't even look at their own research. It was as if they were making it up as they went along. See the rebuttal to the EU report on www.wnho.net Click on aspartame.
With regard to Desert Storm Syndrome, you may recall the government did a study and came up with Lou Gehrigs. The pop companies sent aspartame laced pop to the Persian Gulf to sit in the 120 degree Arabian sun and break down to formaldehyde cocktails. Go to www.dorway.com and read the protest of the National Soft Drink Association and you'll see they said it decomposes at 86 degrees. So the pop companies knew the gun was loaded. The NSDA also quoted the law that said it's illegal to put anything in carbonated beverages that decomposes or adulterates the drink. Yet the pop companies turned around and added it to the beverages anyway. And it would interact with vaccines like the Antrax given to the troops - never approved by the FDA. Acting Commissioner at the time, Michael Friedman just said to use it anyway. Read the case for aspartame disease being Lou Gehrigs on www.wnho.net (click on aspartame).
Back in 1996 when Dr. John Olney (founded the field of neuroscience called excitotoxicity, and attempted to stop the approval of aspartame with Attorney James Turner) made world news on the aspartame/brain tumor connection he was on 60 Minutes. Michael Friedman knowing full well the main reason the FDA [had] refused to allow aspartame on the market for 16 years was the brain tumors, got on 60 Minutes and defended Monsanto by saying aspartame did not cause brain tumors. Yet the FDA's own toxicologist, Dr. Adrian Gross, told Congress that without a shadow of a doubt aspartame can cause brain tumors and brain cancer, and violated the Delaney Amendment which forbid putting anything in food you know will cause cancer. His last words to Congress were "And if the FDA violates its own law, who is left to protect the public?" All you have to do is read the Bressler Report (FDA audit) on www.dorway.com where Searle was caught excising brain tumors from the rats and putting them back in the study. When the rats died they resurrected them on paper. I spoke with Jerome Bressler as did Dr. H. J. Roberts (Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic, www.sunsentpress.com or 1 800 827 7991) and neurosurgeon Russell Blaylock, M.D. (author of Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills, www.russellblaylockmd.com ). He told us the studies were so bad that the FDA removed the 20% of his report that was the most damning. He also said to try and attain a cover letter as well as two mice studies. Dr. Roberts wrote his congressman to get this, but the FDA refused.
I asked Michael Friedman when he was going to get his reward for selling out to Monsanto, but he never answered. In June 1999 he got his reward when Monsanto hired him. I told him at the time the FDA no longer needed a revolving door, they could build a bridge to take care of the traffic.
Today we are faced with what may be one of the largest plagues in world history, Aspartame Disease. Congress has given the NIH $2.7 billion to find out what toxin is poisoning our kids that has baffled the experts. See my report on www.wnho.net to NIH. In 20 years the kids would be dead. They ought to give the money to the parents of children damaged by aspartame.
Aspartame lawsuits have now been filed accusing some of the largest companies in the world of knowingly poisoning the public. See press release below. Understand that aspartame damages DNA so we're talking about survival of the human race. Nothing is safe as long as [aspartame] is on the market because of interaction of a deadly chemical poison. Thank you Donald Rumsfeld! The medical text, Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic, by Dr. H. J. Roberts is 1038 pages of symptoms and diseases triggered by this neurotoxin. It has even caused the epidemic of obesity because it makes you crave carbohydrates so you gain weight, and the formaldehyde accumulates in the adipose tissue (fat cells) according to the Trocho Study. That's why they are trying to get the cheeseburger law through the Senate now. Aspartame manufacturers do not want to be held responsible for the epidemic they caused by refining lies until they resembled truth, telling the public aspartame is a diet product. Aspartame is also responsible for the epidemic of diabetes. It not only can precipitate diabetes but simulates and aggravates diabetic retinopathy and neuropathy, can cause diabetics to go into convulsions and interacts with insulin.
Aspartame liberates free methyl alcohol. Charles Fleming was a body builder and played basketball four times a week, and was addicted to aspartame, drinking diet drinks all day, and consuming other products. When he died and [they] saw the methanol poisoning they thought his wife poisoned him. This Sunday school teacher is now serving 50 years in a Troy Virginia prison for a crime committed by the manufacturers of aspartame. Four doctors have written affidavits that Fleming died of aspartame but the medical examiner, Dr. Marcello Fierro (friend of Orrin Hatch) has refused to talk to Dr. Roberts even when a meeting was set up for that reason. He wrote one of the affidavits. He treated victims of aspartame disease in the trenches of medical practice for 20 years and testified before Congress. In his first press conference he said if something wasn't done then we would be faced with a global epidemic, and that's where we are. See the petition for releasing Diane Fleming on www.wnho.net .
America is terrorized by the exploding crisis in health care. American families are but a single sickness away from financial destruction. Citizens who scrimped their life through to cushion retirement must now choose whether to eat or buy drugs. Face it: if you're over 50 you're over-medicated in the USA today. Try saving half by buying from Canada and FDA will make a law against you! Land of the Free no more!
It's about money. Money for commissioner Hayes. Money for the federal prosecutors. Money for the parade of FDA officials who slithered into the NutraDeath club. Billions of quarters tinkling into vending machines of the National Soft Drink Association that once announced aspartame instability, but when cash registers began dancing to the beat of aspartame addiction just hurried to the bank.
Under the venal authority of Commissioner Hayes FDA repudiated its mission to protect a nation's health and became the private harlot of the drug industry. Aspartame and a thousand more dread poisons pimped by FDA are loosed upon a trusting population. Like seeping sewage the stinking greed of FDA and it's whoremasters has infected American healthcare, murdering children, impoverishing families and devouring widows' houses.
And it all started with Donald Rumsfeld calling in his markers and getting this deadly, deadly neurotoxic drug approved. He knew it was poison and didn't care.
The profiteer's endless proclamation:
"All is well!" "All is well!"
They lure our land and health to hell.

The Aspartame/NutraSweet Fiasco
James S. Turner
Many health-conscious people believe that avoiding aspartame, found in over 5000 products under brand names such as Equal and NutraSweet, can improve their quality of life. The history of this synthetic sweetener's approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), including a long record of consumer complaints and the agency's demonstrated insensitivity to public concern, suggests they're right.
In October 1980 the Public Board of Inquiry (PBOI) impaneled by the FDA to evaluate aspartame safety found that the chemical caused an unacceptable level of brain tumors in animal testing. Based on this fact, the PBOI ruled that aspartame should not be added to the food supply.
This ruling capped 15 years of regulatory ineptitude, chicanery and deception by the FDA and the Searle drug company, aspartame's discoverer and manufacturer (acquired by Monsanto in 1985), and kicked off another two decades of maneuvering, manipulating and dissembling by FDA, Searle and Monsanto.
In 1965, a Searle scientist licked some of a new ulcer drug from his fingers and discovered the sweet taste of aspartame. Eureka! Selling this chemical as a food additive to hundreds of millions of healthy people every day would mean many more dollars than limited sales to the much smaller group of ulcer sufferers.
Searle, a drug company with little experience in food regulation, began studies to comply with the law -- but which failed to do so. Its early tests of the substance showed it produced microscopic holes and tumors in the brains of experimental mice, epileptic seizures in monkeys, and was converted by animals into dangerous substances, including formaldehyde.
In 1974, however, in spite of the information in its files, the FDA approved aspartame as a dry-foods additive. But the agency also made public for the first time the data supporting a food-additive decision. This data was subsequently reviewed by renowned brain researcher John Olney from Washington University in St. Louis, and other scientists.
Dr. Olney discovered two studies showing brain tumors in rats and petitioned FDA for a public hearing. Consumer Action for Improved Foods and Drugs (represented by the author of this piece) also petitioned for a public hearing based on the approval process having been based on sloppy science and the product's having reportedly caused epileptic seizures in monkeys and possible eye damage.
Dr. Olney had already shown that aspartic acid (one aspartame component) caused microscopic holes in the brains of rats after each feeding. Aspartame also includes phenylalinine, which causes PKU in a small number of susceptible children, and methyl, or wood, alcohol which is neurotoxic in large amounts.
Faced with this array of possible health dangers, FDA granted the hearing requests. In lieu of withdrawing its aspartame approval, the agency prevailed on Searle to refrain from marketing the sweetener until after completion of the hearing process. it then proposed that a Public Board of Inquiry (PBOI) review the matter.
In July of 1975, as the FDA prepared for the PBOI, an FDA inspector conducted a routine review of the Searle's Skokie Ill., testing facilities and found many deviations from proper procedures. This report led the FDA commissioner to empanel a Special Commissioner's Task Force to review Searle's labs.
In December of 1975 the Task force reported serious problem with Searle research on a wide range of products, including aspartame. It found 11pivotal studies conducted in a manner so flawed as to raise doubts about aspartame safety and create the possibility of serious criminal liability for Searle.
The FDA then stayed aspartame's approval. It also contracted, over serious internal objection, with a group of university pathologists (paid by Searle) to review most of the studies, set up a task force to review three studies and asked the U.S. Attorney for Chicago to seek a grand jury review of the monkey seizure study.
The pathologists paid by Searle only reviewed failure to properly report data and not the study's design or conduct. They found no serious problems. The FDA task force found Searle's key tumor safety study unreliable, but was ignored. The U.S. attorney let the statue of limitations run out, then (along with two aides) proceeded to join Searle's law firm.
While these committees met, the FDA organized the PBOI. Searle, the petitioners and the FDA Bureau of Foods each nominated three members for the board and the FDA commissioner selected one member from each list. the board, which convened in January of 1980, rejected petitioners' request to include the commissioner's task force information in its deliberations. Still, in October 1980, based on its limited review, the board blocked aspartame marketing until the tumor studies could be explained. Unless the commissioner overruled the board, the matter was closed.
In November 1980, however, the country elected Ronald Reagan President. Donald Rumsfeld (former congressman from Skokie, former White House chief of staff, former secretary of defense and since January 1977 president of Searle) joined the Reagan transition team. A full court press against the board decision began.
In January 1981 Rumsfeld told a sales meeting, according to one attendee, that he would call in his chips and get aspartame approved by the end of the year. On January 25th, the day the new president took office, the previous FDA commissioner's authority was suspended, and the next month, the commissioner's job went to Dr. Arthur Hull Hayes.
Transition records do not show why the administration chose ***Hayes, a professor and Defense Department contract researcher.*** In July Hayes, defying FDA advisors, approved aspartame for dry foods -- his first major decision. In November 1983 the FDA approved aspartame for soft drinks -- Hayes' last decision.
In November 1983 Hayes, under fire for accepting corporate gifts, left the agency and went to Searle's public-relations firm as senior medical advisor. Later Searle lawyer Robert Shapiro named aspartame NutraSweet. Monsanto purchased Searle. Rumsfeld received a $12 million bonus. Shapiro is now Monsanto president.
Shortly after the FDA soft-drink approval, Searle began test marketing, and complaints began to arrive at the FDA -- of such reactions as dizziness, blurred vision, headaches, and seizures. The complaints were more serious than the agency had ever received on any food additive, At the same time, scientists began looking more closely at this manufactured chemical sweeetner.
In 1985, the FDA asked the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to review the first 650 complaints (there are now over 10,000). CDC found that the symptoms in approximately 25% of the complainants had stopped and then restarted, corresponding with their having stopped and then restarted, either purposely or by accident, aspartame consumption.
The CDC also identified several specific subjects whose symptoms stopped and started as they stopped and started consuming aspartame. The FDA discounted the report. The day the FDA released the CDC report, Pepsi Cola -- having obained an advance copy -- announced its switch to aspartame with a worldwide media blitz.
Former White House Chief of Staff Rumsfeld owed a debt of gratitude to former White House confidante and Rumsfeld friend Donald Kendal, Pepsi's chairman. The Pepsi announcement and aggressive marketing (millions of gumballs, a red and white swirl, tough contracts) made NutraSweet known in every home.
At the same time, according to data released in 1995, human brain tumors like those in the animal studies rose 10% and previously benign tumors turned virulent. Searle and FDA's deputy commissioner said the data posed no problem. Two years later this same FDA official became vice president of clinical research for Searle.
From 1985 to 1995, researchers did about 400 aspartame studies. They were divided almost evenly between those that gave assurances and those that raised questions about the sweetener. Most instructively, Searle paid for 100% of those finding no problem. All studies paid for by non-industry sources raised questions.
Given this record, it is little wonder that many health-conscious people believe avoiding NutraSweet improves their quality of life. If and when a scientific consensus concludes that aspartame puts some, if not all, of its consumers at risk, it will be much too late. The point is to eat safely now. Remember: the brain you save may be your own.

growing stake in Tamiflu
The prospect of a bird flu outbreak may be panicking people around the globe, but it's proving to be very good news for Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and other politically connected investors in Gilead Sciences, the California biotech company that owns the rights to Tamiflu, the influenza remedy that's now the most-sought after drug in the world.
