First there was a swine flu vaccine “shortage.”  Now there’s a surplus and they can’t give it away.

Then we had a batch of vaccine withdrawn in Canada because it cause anaphylactic shock.

Now another batch has been withdrawn, this time in the U.S., because the vaccine has lost strength.  Thing is, most of them have probably already been used.

If this series of events doesn’t convince you that they don’t know what they’re doing, then nothing will.

GlaxoSmithKline has advised Canadian doctors not to use a batch of their swine flu vaccine containing about 170,000 doses.  It seems it was causing a “higher than normal” reaction of anaphylactic shock: 1 in 20,000 instead of the expected 1 in 100,000.

And once again, mainstream media is ignoring the story.  This information is from a five-paragraph note by the BBC.   Nobody else is touching it.  After all, supply has finally caught up with demand and the media has to brainwash convince people to get them.

Major Nidal Malik Hasan worshipped at a mosque led by a radical imam said to be a “spiritual adviser” to three of the hijackers who attacked America on Sept 11, 2001

London Telegraph

Charles Allen, who the Telegraph says used to be an under-secretary at Homeland Security, reportedly said this imam supports al-Qaeda and targets US Muslims with “radical online lectures encouraging terrorist attacks from his new home in Yemen.”

Once again, MSM is ignoring a big story.  A search at the time of this writing finds zero American media outlets covering this story, one in England, and one in Canada – despite over 3,000 posts on the web. [HT to Michelle Malkin, which is where I found it.]

Whenever the silence on a big story is this deafening – like it was last spring when Baxter pharmaceuticals accidentally on-purpose spread flu vaccine contaminated with live bird flu virus around Europe  (here are some more posts about Baxter) – I am prone to speculate, “Why?”

Why … would MSM ignore a story this big, when they’ve been bombarding us with every sneeze associated with the Ft. Hood shooting?

Why … has no one from the government publicly renounced this iman and exposed his continued influence?

Why … doesn’t anyone in the media or the government acknowledge – out loud and in public – that violent jihadist rhetoric encourages the murder of anyone who won’t worship Allah?

Dear fellow Jews, what is so hard to understand about “we hate your guts, and will continue to kill and maim you”? Just last week, an “inter-faith” Rabbi, the guest speaker at an ISNA (Islamic Society of North America) conference was shocked … shocked to hear that one of the guest imams felt that Jews deserved the Holocaust because they turned their backs against Allah. What is so hard to understand about that?

Center for Faith and the Media

We are in danger of being subjugated to the ideology of Islamic world domination. The Jews are again in grave danger, and so are all Christians, along with the nations and societies that are democratic. The Ottoman Empire failed. Hitler’s “Final solution”and his Third Reich failed. The Islamic quest has no intention of failing a third time! “First the Saturday people, then the Sunday people,” is not simply their slogan, but their strategy!

I don’t have much use for unions, but in this case, they’ve earned their keep. PEF has sued for and won a restraining order against the NY Health Dept. requirement that all healthcare workers get regular and swine flu shots, even if they’re not safe.

Read the details at Cato of Utica.

No one knows, because they’re using it before the tests are complete. And from a legal standpoint it doesn’t really matter, because the manufacturers can’t be sued.

Assuming that you still want to know for personal reasons, let’s look for clues.

The last time the US government panicked over swine flu was in 1976. Even the CDC later admitted there was no swine flu, but the vaccine resulted in over 500 cases of Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS) and 25 deaths. You’re probably not familiar with GBS, but I am. It’s an autoimmune disorder that attacks the lining of the nerves. A woman I see at therapy every week has it. She was in the hospital for several weeks, lost over 50 pounds, and almost died. Two years later, she still has no feeling in her feet and is on disability.

Here’s a video about the whole 1976 fiasco from a banned 60 Minutes show in 1979. Watch and learn.

So is GBS a risk with the current vaccine? The Center for Disease Control and the US media say not. “Get the shot. Give it to your kids,” they say.

But Britain’s Health Protection Agency and the Association of British Neurologists view it a little differently. They both sent confidential letters to about 600 neurologists in July, which were recently leaked to the Daily Mail, warning the neurologists to be on the lookout for an increase in GBS when the vaccine is rolled out. From those letters:

  • GBS has been identified as a condition needing enhanced surveillance when the swine flu vaccines are rolled out.
  • Traditionally, the BNSU has monitored rare diseases for long periods of time. However, the swine influenza (H1N1) pandemic has overtaken us and we need every member’s involvement with a new BNSU survey of Guillain-Barre Syndrome that will start on August 1 and run for approximately nine months.
  • Following the 1976 programme of vaccination against swine influenza in the US, a retrospective study found a possible eight-fold increase in the incidence of GBS.
  • You will have seen Press coverage describing the Government’s concern about releasing a vaccine of unknown safety.

From that same Daily Mail article:

  • Jackie Fletcher, founder of vaccine support group Jabs, said: ‘The Government would not be anticipating this if they didn’t think there was a connection. What we’ve got is a massive guinea-pig trial.’

Add to all this that Baxter Pharmaceuticals is one of the manufacturers of this new vaccine. You remember Baxter. I’ve written about them here and here and they’re still among my most popular posts.

So for myself, you won’t get me close to a vaccine shot. If you decide to get it, like NY health care workers are being forced to do, well … good luck. You have more faith in government and the pharmaceutical industry than I do.
