Kicking the Problem Around

From Georgia, the state with a half million plastic coffins laying around, comes this news: Perdue signs flu bill 042809.

ATLANTA -- Georgia nurses and pharmacists have more authority [are we sure they need more authority???] to respond to the spreading swine flu outbreak [are we sure it's spreading???] and the governor has more power as the result of legislation Gov. Sonny Perdue signed this morning. [That is rich... the governor has more power thanks to legislation signed by....the governor! Wow.]

The Access to Flu Vaccines Act cosponsored by the druggists in the House, including Reps. Ron Stephens and Buddy Carter of Savannah and health-policy expert Mickey Channell of Greensboro, is designed to make it easier for Georgians to receive shots and for the state to respond quicker.

Pharmacists and nurses will now be able to dispense flue shots without individual prescriptions. It [the legislation] was needed after the Composite Board of Medical Examiners accepted advice from the Attorney General’s Office last fall in concluding that prescriptions were needed under the law. [So, the AG finds it illegal to dispense flu shots without individual prescriptions, so they passed this law to FIX that PROBLEM. We wouldn't want any pesky legal challenges standing in the way of mass vaccinations.]

The new legislation legitimizes the state’s practice for the last decade in permitting doctors to issue standing orders. [Yes they've been breaking the law for the past decade but not to worry they just fixed it.] It also specifically permits hospitals authority to offer vaccinations or tests when recommended by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

At the same time, it lets the governor declare a state or emergency for a pandemic influenza if the CDC or World Health Organization declares a phase 5 alert.

Mr. Perdue plucked [oh ha ha what a card!] House Bill 217 for signing ahead of the hundreds of others awaiting his signature from the 2009 session that ended earlier this month. He has until May 13 to sign or veto bills and normally announces his decisions closer to the deadline.

“The flu affects thousands of people each year and our citizens should be able to access flu vaccines to protect themselves and their families,” said Mr. Perdue.

Oh dear. There's so much here to simply appall a sentient human being, but let's just focus on the appeal to authority, a role currently filled by the CDC and the WHO. As I wrote the other day, it was the very CDC and WHO that gestated this little problem with their stupid and demonic idea to breed a rare "reassortment" virus rather than wait for mother nature. Because after all, mother nature might have never got around to it. And then they subsequently allowed the virus to be mishandled. So why on earth would we be looking to these organizations for direction? It seems they want to get us killed.

The virus has shown little ability to spread from person to person, but the fear is that a hybrid could combine the killing power of the avian virus with the transmissibility of human flu viruses. Now, rather than waiting to see if nature spawns such a hybrid, US scientists are planning to try to breed one themselves—in the name of preparedness. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will soon launch experiments designed to combine the H5N1 virus and human flu viruses and then see how the resulting hybrids affect animals. The goal is to assess the chances that such a "reassortant" virus will emerge and how dangerous it might be....The World Health Organization (WHO) has been "pleading" for laboratories to do this research, because it could provide some evidence to back up the agency's warnings about the risk of a flu pandemic, according to the CP report.
So basically, the way I see it, the CDC and the WHO ordered this research to PROVE THEMSELVES RIGHT in telling us to be very afraid. They want us afraid, so they bent over backwards to give us something to be afraid of.

And even though this particular virus does not seem to be particularly deadly, that does not mean it won't do the trick, because the trick is to get people to voluntarily take the vaccines. Why? Because they are afraid. Even better for people to demand that the government provide the vaccines and clear away any and all obstacles to them getting their shots. That's where the money lies, and that is presumably why Governor Purdue PLUCKED this legislation to the front of the line. He says it's to protect the citizens of Georgia, but you can go ahead and click through the last link and read how profitable this problem will be for certain people in the biotech industry. Kind of makes a person wonder what kind of financial interest people like Sonny Purdue, Ron Stephens, Buddy Carter and Mickey Channell have in the vaccine business.

And what do you want to bet that the solution provided as a result of this swine flu scare, the vaccines, will result in another problem down the road? I think it's a pretty good bet. Maybe there will be some unfortunate reaction to the vaccines. Or perhaps the next flu will have some particular virulence that just so happens to kill the people who took the vaccine that comes from this psyops. Who knows? The fact that there are a half million plastic coffins lying around in Georgia might have something to do with it, but that is just an educated guess on my part. I mean, that looks like a ready-made solution to some big problem, does it not?


Rara Avis

Rara Avis: a rare thing. OR NOT.

Chapter 1 - In the Name of Preparedness

January 2004:
One of the worst fears of infectious disease experts is that the H5N1 avian influenza virus now circulating in parts of Asia will combine with a human-adapted flu virus to create a deadly new flu virus that could spread around the world.

That could happen, scientists predict, if someone who is already infected with an ordinary flu virus contracts the avian virus at the same time. [rara avis] The avian virus has already caused at least 48 confirmed human illness cases in Asia, of which 35 have been fatal.

The virus has shown little ability to spread from person to person, but the fear is that a hybrid could combine the killing power of the avian virus with the transmissibility of human flu viruses.

Now, rather than waiting to see if nature spawns such a [rara avis] hybrid, US scientists are planning to try to breed one themselves—in the name of preparedness.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will soon launch experiments designed to combine the H5N1 virus and human flu viruses and then see how the resulting hybrids affect animals. The goal is to assess the chances that such a [rara avis] "reassortant" virus will emerge and how dangerous it might be.

Is that a Stupid Fucking Idea, or what? Let's play with matches. Let's run with scissors. Let's pour lighter fluid on a blazing fire. Oh wait I know...let's create in a laboratory a killer mutant virus that nature would probably never generate on its own.
The plans call for trying two methods to create hybrid viruses, CDC spokesman David Daigle told CIDRAP News via e-mail. One is to infect cells in a laboratory tissue culture with H5N1 and human flu viruses at the same time and then watch to see if they mix. For the human virus, investigators will use A (H3N2), the strain that has caused most human flu cases in recent years, according to the CP report.

The other method is reverse genetics—assembling a new virus with sets of genes from the H5N1 and H3N2 viruses. Reverse genetics has already been used to create H5N1 candidate vaccines in several laboratories, according to Daigle. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) said recently it would soon launch a clinical trial of one of those vaccines.

Of the two methods, the co-infection approach was described as slower and more laborious, though closer to what happens in nature.

Hold it right there. Seven months later BiondVax, an Israeli company, developed a "quantum leap in technology" for influenza vaccines. The key players are Isaac Devash, Chairman, Ron Babecoff, Founder and CEO, and Ruth Arnon, Weizmann Institute of Science Professor.
"It's a quantum leap in technology," [rara avis] he told ISRAEL21c. "It's a totally different concept from other vaccinations. What generally happens today is that there are 120 monitoring stations globally that look for new strains of virus around the world. Once it shows up, they identify the surface of the virus and develop a vaccine to combat it."

"Professor Arnon said 'I don't want to play that game'. It's tedious work identifying new strains of the virus and there are always new ones coming up. She said let's look conceptually at the virus - beneath the surface - to see if there are particular elements that don't change. And then let's make a vaccine out of those parts which are universal in all viruses," explained Devash.
Back to CIDRAP News in January 2004:

Any viable viruses that emerge from these processes will be seeded into animals that are considered good models for testing how flu viruses behave in humans, according to Daigle. The aim will be to observe whether the animals get sick and whether infected animals can infect others.

And fast forward again to BiondVax in July 2004:
Devash said that Arnon's lab in Rehovot tested the vaccine on "human mice," - rodents in which a human immune system (white blood cells) have been introduced.

"The results were staggering. [rara avis] The humanized mice were vaccinated and then attacked by different strains of influenza. All of the vaccinated mice stayed alive, while the control group of mice who didn't receive the vaccination all died," he said.

This success rate among the 'human mice' predicts a high likelihood of success in human clinical trials, Devash added. The new vaccine activates both arms of the human immune system (B- & T-cells) resulting in over 95% protection.
Back to January:

The World Health Organization (WHO) has been "pleading" for laboratories to do this research, because it could provide some evidence to back up the agency's warnings about the risk of a flu pandemic, according to the CP report. [Except for risking an actual pandemic so as to have evidence of warnings, great thinking. WTF?]

Klaus Stohr, head of the WHO's global influenza program, was quoted as saying that if none of the hybrids caused disease, the agency might be inclined to dial down its level of concern. [That would be a NWO AGENDA FAILURE.] But if the experiments produce highly transmissible and pathogenic viruses, the agency will be more worried, he said. [Meaning, "worried." It's just a word.]

Chapter 2 - Safety Precautions

We're still with the CIDRAP article, January 2004:
Because of the obvious risks in creating viruses with the potential to spark a pandemic, the work will be done in a biosafety level 3 (BSL-3) laboratory at the CDC in Atlanta, Daigle told CIDRAP News.

"We recognize that there is concern by some over this type of work. This concern may be heightened by reports of recent lab exposures in other lab facilities," he said. "But CDC has an incredible record in lab safety and is taking very strict precautions."[or not]

Daigle said the US Department of Agriculture requires that highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) viruses be treated as "Select Agents" and that research on them must be done in BSL-3 labs with "enhancements." These include "special provisions to protect both laboratory workers and the environment."

BSL-3 is the second highest level of laboratory biosecurity. It is used for work with pathogens that may cause serious or potentially lethal disease if inhaled, such as tuberculosis or St. Louis encephalitis, according to the CDC.

CDC experiments with HPAI viruses have to pass reviews by the agency's Institutional Biosafety Committee and Animal Care and Use Committee, Daigle said. The facilities involved are inspected by the USDA and the CDC's Office of Safety and Health, and staff members who work with Select Agents require special clearance.

Well, phew. Even though this is an Incredibly Stupid and Dangerous Idea, safety precautions have been taken.

Chapter 3 - Who Could Have Predicted?

Except that somehow between 2004 and 2009, the work was contracted out to some other places besides the BSL-3 CDC lab in Georgia, and the safety precautions went right out the window! Oopsie! And furthermore, the original article describing this disaster went "away." And on top of that, nobody appears to be in any trouble whatsoever!
Officials are trying to get to the bottom of how vaccine manufacturer Baxter International Inc. made "experimental virus material" based on a human flu strain but contaminated with the H5N1 avian flu virus and then distributed it to an Austrian company. That company, Avir Green Hills Biotechnology, then disseminated the supposed H3N2 virus product to subcontractors in the Czech Republic, Slovenia and Germany. Authorities in the four European countries are looking into the incident, and their efforts are being closely watched by the World Health Organization and the European Centre for Disease Control.
Yeah, it was the WHO who PLEADED for laboratories to do this Exceedingly Stupid and Dangerous Research back in 2004. And now it has all gone terribly wrong. As Dear Condi would say, WHO COULD HAVE PREDICTED? This is all very regrettable, don't you agree?
Baxter International, which is based in Deerfield, Ill., said the contamination was the result of an error [rara avis] in its research facility in Orth-Donau, Austria. The facility had been contracted by Avir Green Hills to make what Baxter refers to as "experimental virus material" based on human H3N2 viruses....Avir Green Hills said in an email that it took possession of the material in late December. It later sent the product to the sub-contractors. The email said the material was stored and handled throughout under high biosafety conditions. [OR NOT] Alarm bells rang in early February when researchers at the Czech sub-contractor inoculated ferrets with the material and the animals promptly died. Baxter learned about the problem on Feb. 6, Bona said from Deerfield.

From my post on March 2, 2009:

Bona said Baxter has identified how the contamination happened and has taken steps to ensure it doesn't happen again. He said Austrian authorities audited Baxter's Orth-Donau research operations after the problem came to light and are satisfied with the steps taken. [Just brush your hands together, we're all set.]

Baxter is the only flu vaccine manufacturer to work with wild type flu viruses, [rara avis] felt to be more dangerous than the altered and attenuated (weakened) viruses other manufacturers use. [Special.]

The company uses what is known as BSL3 level precautions in all its vaccine research facilities, Bona said. [OR NOT!] (Researchers at the U.S. CDC use BSL3-plus biocontainment when working with H5N1 viruses, a spokesperson for the agency said.) [And that's where this Incredibly Stupid project was supposed to take place, at the CDC in Georgia.]

People familiar with biosecurity rules are dismayed by evidence that human H3N2 and avian H5N1 viruses have somehow co-mingled in the Baxter research facility. That should not be allowed to happen, a number of experts insisted. [Yet it was, and nobody seems to be very upset. No heads rolling...nothing. Isn't that kind of odd?]

The company isn't shedding much light on how it did. [And they get away with that.]

"It was a combination of just the process itself, (and) technical and human error in this procedure," Bona said. When asked to elaborate, he said to do so would give away proprietary information about Baxter's production process. [Oh, like, who really runs this cock-up for the NWO crowd?]

Bona said when Baxter realized its error, it helped the various companies destroy the contaminated material and clean up their facilities. And staff who had been exposed to the contaminated product were assessed and monitored by infectious diseases doctors. They were also offered the antiviral drug oseltamivir (Tamiflu). [This is like Israel investigating its own war crimes.]
Chapter 4 - Here We Come to Save the Day

I'm sure we can all agree that this is very unfortunate and regrettable, this incident with Baxter and Avir Green Hills. Somebody should really be held accountable, but don't hold your breath. But the "Good News" is that BiondVax's stock is just through the roof! As the Once-ler once said, "Oh baby oh! How my business did grow!" You know, because they were Lucky to be the company with a SOLUTION to the PROBLEM.

In March the shares sold at $24, and now they sell at $106. Hoo boy. Lucky, huh? [rara avis]
Among the companies who will participate at ILSI-Biomed Israel will be BiondVax Pharmaceuticals, Inc. a firm developing a revolutionary vaccination that will provide universal multi-season/multi-strain protection against human flu virus strains.

"Outbreaks of strains such as swine flu are exactly the reason why we are developing our vaccine. While vaccinations will cost, the global treatment of a pandemic would be a much more expensive proposition, especially given the global economic challenges we have today," said Dr. Ron Babecoff, DVM, Founder, President & CEO of BiondVax. "ILSI-Biomed Israel is an important venue for Israeli companies like BiondVax to show the world how we in Israel are playing a role in helping people life longer, healthier lives."
Hegel would be proud.

A short observation

This psychopath Philip Markoff...do you think he might be a Muslim? Or maybe Catholic? I'm just asking because I'm part German, and I saw this remark about Philip Markoff:
People always think Blonde people are wholesome and sweet, but they forget about the really mean and nasty blonde people in Germany that did horrible things.
Riiiiiight. And don't you ever forget it.

I mean, first of all, it's just a scoche presumptuous to make a blanket statement like "people always think Blonde people are wholesome and sweet." But then to follow it up with how they (people in general) forget about all those mean and nasty blonde people in Germany that did horrible things (THEY KILLED JEWS YOU KNOW). So let us helpfully remind you, 'kay?

So by this reasoning that Philip Markoff, the psychopath, he's probably German. You know, he's blonde, he's a killer. What more proof do you need?

Go ahead. See if you can find out Philip's background. I'm not saying I've read all the stories, but it appears to be a closely guarded secret. Go figure. It's like this little detail has just been scrubbed away. This is the nearest I found:
Clean-cut 'Craigslist Killer' suspect Philip Markoff gave off 'creepy vibe'

"Smart." "Pompous." Clean-cut." "Creepy."

A high-achieving dentist's son from upstate New York, Philip Markoff is described in various ways, but everyone, even those who didn't like him, is shocked at the charges against him.

...At college, he was a member of the College Republicans and was fairly unremarkable except for the occasional offensive comment, said ex-classmate Joe Coe.

"He was someone that had issues with people of color, had issues with women," Coe told CBS.

And does it matter? Well shit I don't know, but I am positive that if the psychopath murderer Philip Markoff was a Muslim, that would be Fact Number One in the public consciousness.


Dress Rehearsal

After looking over the stories regarding this flu business, the overall impression I get is that this is probably a dry run conditioning event. It just doesn't seem horribly deadly, and if they were going to take the trouble to start a pandemic, wouldn't it be really deadly right away?

As it stands now, the more uptight people will be making demands of the government. Do this. Do that. Protect us. Give us shots. The more cynical people will shrug the whole thing off and be even less worried the next time. It's kind of a win-win for the people who like mind-fucking us to death.

I basically agree with this take on it, at least it feels about right to me. The point about people wittingly or unwittingly helping the agenda is true, although it's not exactly simple to sort through events while they're happening. Let's face it: we are under constant manipulation and therefore forced to run down a few blind alleys like rats in a maze.
For people who claim to be against the corporate media's endless propaganda and fearmongering, they are sure good at promoting its agenda and getting everyone all hopped up over what is more than likely just another fear campaign aimed at distracting the public and instilling fear with Tavistock psyop techniques designed to wear the public down, so they are actually more subservient to government control.

All over the internet, well-meaning dupes (and many not so well-meaning charlatans) in the so-called Truth movement are going to town with this story and getting people into a frenzy, which was no doubt the whole intention to begin with.

Am I saying there is nothing to this outbreak, and that everything being reported is bogus? No, and I am sure this is all happening at this time for a reason. Is it something to panic about? No, and nor should it ever be, as that is exactly what the controllers want. However, I am sure when the real outbreak occurs, it will be a lot more deadly and spread a lot quicker than this recent swine flu epidemic.

They have been conditioning the public for years in movies and on television for the coming outbreak, and no doubt this is just another way of conditioning the public for what lies ahead if people don't wake up. I see it as real life predictive programming.

If anything, this is just a trial run to see how the public will react.
Similarly, this take on it:
This latest flu hasn’t been widespread and not that deadly. It seems to be just a beta test and not the real release to drastically reduce the population of the world.

Yes, the ruling elite want to reduce the population of the world. They write about it in their books, in their think tank documents, in government documents, and at their conferences. You won’t hear about it on television news because they’re part of the mainstream media trust, along with AP and Reuters, which are all owned by the same people.

They add the industrial waste and active ingredient of rat poison, known as fluoride, in your water, causing your brain, liver, and bones to rot and decay. They add mercury, which is as toxic as lead or arsenic, to the vaccines as a preservative, causing autism and sudden infant death syndrome, among several other things. Yes, the government hates you and wants to kill you. Government loves war and death.

Before any scientist does anything drastic they always do a beta test. They are studying several different things such as how far it spreads and how fast. They are studying if it mutates. They are studying if they’ll get away with the crime.

Mexico seems like an ideal distribution point since they know it would spread to the United States. There are less safeguards in Mexico than the United States, but the United States is the primary target. Americans have a Second Amendment right, which makes Americans a big threat to the New World Order and the ruling elite’s power.

It is your duty not to make the latest beta test a success by screaming about it. Scream about it to your elected representatives and to the media. Demand justice.

The sick part about this is that they are using vaccines to spread the virus. The cure for the bioterrorism attack is the method of delivery so take vaccines at your own risk. Take a rat or your local politician to the doctor with you to beta test the vaccine before you take it.

The real test will be much more deadly and much more widespread. They’ll bring in martial law when it happens and take the rest of our rights away if we happen to survive a large scale bioterror attack.

Also, this is an opportunity for people to make some money. From the comment section of my last post:
A while back, we discussed on this site a company called Biondvax. They are a pharma company from Ness-Ziona, Israel. The closing price for their stock last week was $28. It just jumped 22% to $34 with a phenomenal spike in trade volume:

BiondVax Pharmaceuticals (TASE:BNDK) is developing a revolutionary vaccination that will provide universal multi-season/multi-strain protection against most human influenza virus strains, as well as the Avian flu. The Flu vaccine industry, estimated currently at $2 Billion, is expected to grow to a $4 Billion market by 2012. Between 250 and 300 million doses are currently administered annually worldwide.

Since its inception in 2003, the company has raised $8.5 million to date. This includes $4.5 million from private investors, $1 million from the Israeli Office of the Chief Scientist (OCS), a government scientific investment authority, and most recently an additional $3 million from its IPO on the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange, completed in June 2007. The IPO included an issue of 3.53 million stocks and 350,000 stock options with a striking price of 3.47 NIS ($ 0.838 USD).


LOS ANGELES, April 24 (Reuters) - The swine flu outbreak is likely to benefit one of the most prolific and successful venture capital firms in the United States: Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, Thomson Reuters Private Equity Week reported on Friday.

Shares of the two public companies in the firm's portfolio of eight Pandemic and Bio Defense companies -- BioCryst Pharmaceuticals (BCRX.O) and Novavax (NVAX.O) -- jumped Friday on news that the swine flu killed a reported 60 people in Mexico and has infected people in the United States.
This Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers has financial ties to Al Gore, via American Everyman. It's the same old boys' club as usual.
One partner of Mr. Gore’s is from Lehman Brothers and another is from Goldman Sachs then a third has ties to the Bush family? And Gore himself is sitting atop two different investment capital firms that stand to make a killing off the implementation of the “cap and trade” system?
So it's possible that this swine flu pandemic scare will just help hustle all the sheep into the waiting arms of these bio defense companies, and the whole thing will keep everybody busy preparing for and "solving" wink wink all sorts of knotty problems that they thought up in their evil think tanks and laboratories to begin with.

You and your life and your future and your happiness -- it's all just a game to these people.

It gets worse.


This Could Be It

Mexican Swine Flu Pandemic

Lord Stirling has it collected here, here and here.

On 23 rd April 2009 the world began to become aware of a very strange new version of swine flu H1N1 in Mexico with limited cases in Texas and California. By the morning of the 24th of April, we began to hear that there were hundreds of sick and 20 or so dead. By late in the day, we have learned that over 1,000 are now reported ill and over 60 are reported dead. There are solid reasons to suspect that this new Mexican Swine Flu is NOT a naturally occurring event but instead is an Advanced Biological Warfare recombination DNA genetically engineered virus.

Here is what we know of the virus so far. This virus has already gone international having crossed the border from Mexico to America. All schools in Mexico City have been canceled, millions of students told to stay home due to Mexican Swine Flu. Sick victims of this strange new virus are currently reported in California and Texas. Over 60 deaths reported in Mexico (could be substantially higher considering the state of Mexican health care and reporting).

Young healthy adults seem to be the most at risk. This is similar to the deadest killer flu in history, Spanish Flu in 1918. Most if not all nations with advanced biological warfare programs have been interested in recreating the Spanish Flu DNA sequence and several are reported to have done so.

The new Mexican Swine Flu has elements of DNA from the following: avian flu, human flu Type A, human flu Type B, Asian swine flu, and European swine flu. A strange combination never seen before and having less than 1/10% chance of being a natural event. Human and animal viruses from four or more continents suddenly recombine in a new flu during a non-flu season that spreads from human-to-human with a 10% fatality rating.

Over 1,000 reported infected in Mexico; true rate may be much higher. Mexico City seems to be the epicenter of the new virus. Mexico City has 20 million citizens, most terribly poor. Mexico City is notorious for its poor sanitation and public health. "Don't drink the water" has been the byword in Mexico City for decades. It is the perfect breading ground for an explosive growth of this new killer virus. Mexico City has closed all schools, public gatherings, public buildings. People are wearing medical masks on the streets. The government has announced a massive new emergency swine flu vaccination program that will be, at best, either totally non-effective or of very limited effect, and could be, at worst, a deadly option for patients. It is thought that the authorities are trying to contain public panic by announcing the vaccination program.

Both the World Health Organization and the US CDC (Center for Disease Control) have announced, today/24th April, that they are 'very concerned' about a global pandemic developing out of this new disease. Based on advanced biowargaming projections, it is already too late to stop the global spread of this new killer disease. Based on the three waves of Spanish Flu, the latter ones being more lethal, fatality rates may range from approximately 10% to 40% or so in later waves. More people could die in America, Mexico, Canada, Europe, and globally from Mexican Swine Flu than died in World War II.

This new flu is a lab created advanced biological warfare DNA genetically engineered virus that either: (1) Escaped accidentally from a lab; or (2) was deliberately released by a nation or non-state organization or a well-trained individual. [ding ding ding ding - ed.]

If there is a positive side to this coming global disaster, it may force governments to quickly come to grips with containing advanced biowar attacks. This is of considerable short term importance as Israel is apt to attack Iran by no later than mid-July 2009. The Iranians, having hired a large number of key ex-Soviet advanced biowar scientists 18 years ago and having spent billions on their asymmetrical MAD (mutually assured destruction) counter-force, are expected to respond to any significant attack on Iran with a biowar attack on Israel, North America, and Europe using in-place agents and dozens of genetically engineered viruses, many with very high projected kill rates.

This event is an advanced biological warfare event. It is far more important than 9/11 and, by itself, could bring deaths in such magnitudes as to exceed the number of deaths from all causes in the Second World War.

Get ready for the War on Birds and Other Wildlife Creatures

Seriously. I'm feeling cynical this morning, but if you have ever suspected that the corporate media uses language to manipulate you, um, yes it is confirmed. These fucking birds. Either they're gonna kill you with their damn germs or they will strike your plane and take it out while you're on the way to the Bahamas for a well-deserved vacation. Listen, you might also want to watch out for pigs. Talk about dangerous...

Airplane 'bird strikes' have climbed dramatically, FAA records show

Wildlife strikes involve creatures -- including foxes and lizards -- hitting windshields, wings and stabilizers. [Wildlife strikes = creatures hitting your airplanes people, and they do it on purpose. Don't think they're all cuddly and innocent no fucking way these suckers are vicious.] New York's JFK airport tops the list. [Naturally! they are brilliantly evil, diabolically smart, of course they will go for the jugular, NYC. Duh.] Carriers don't have to report strikes. [Yeah that's another thing, we definitely need to be collecting more information fer God's sake someone could get hurt.]

Aircraft at Los Angeles International Airport struck birds or other animals in 940 instances from 1990 through 2008, according to data released Friday by the Federal Aviation Administration.

The strikes involved gulls, hawks, pigeons and other creatures hitting windshields, wings and stabilizer areas. Only 36 of the incidents, or 3.8%, resulted in substantial damage, records show. There were no fatalities. At least five times, planes reported hitting foxes.

The records are part of a newly available database that lists 112,387 reports of aircraft striking wildlife, [Are you sure it shouldn't say WILDLIFE STRIKING AIRCRAFT? HMMM??? You know, put the subject and the verb in the most compelling order please.] including reptiles and mammals, at 2,008 airports in the United States and Canada from January 1990 through November 2008.

The records show that the number of wildlife strikes has increased dramatically nationwide in the last decade. [Do these wildlife organizations work for AQ?] Since 2000, the list of airports with the greatest number of serious incidents is led by New York's John F. Kennedy International, with 30 strikes, and Sacramento International, with 28. LAX, with 16, is tied for ninth place. [Is this a competition to see which airport is the biggest victim of terrorist wildlife strikes?]

Public focus on bird strikes heightened after a US Airways jet made a harrowing landing in the Hudson River in January. The pilot of the Airbus A320 reported a "double bird strike" during takeoff and lost power in both engines, making an emergency water landing.

The database represents the most complete public view yet of the problem, but drawing comparisons or attempting to analyze trends is difficult because the FAA doesn't require airports or airline carriers to report bird strikes. Moreover, key fields in the database, such as damage incurred and where the strike happened, are incomplete. [So you see, there is a lackadaisical approach to this wildlife terrorism problem, and the government does not repeat DOES NOT collect enough information. More information needs to be collected to Keep You Safe.]

For example, out of 1,258 reports of substantial damage since 2000, there was no airport listed for 202 of the incidents, or 16%.

"I would caution against comparing one airport's numbers to another airport's numbers, because reporting is voluntary," said Los Angeles FAA spokesman Ian Gregor. "An airport that is very diligent in reporting these bird strikes could appear to have more incidents simply because they do a better job of reporting."

Long Beach Airport logged 148 incidents during the 18-year period, and John Wayne Airport in Orange Country reported 214, according to the data. Bob Hope Airport in Burbank listed 218 incidents.

Despite the data's limitations, experts said the information would help researchers understand the dimensions of the problem and develop ways to improve safety at a time when areas around many airports have seen a resurgence in bird populations.

"It will create a safer environment in the long run," said Richard Dolbeer, a biologist and former chairman of the Bird Strike Committee, a group of airline industry and wildlife management experts.

The group said that more than 219 people have been killed worldwide because of wildlife strikes since 1988, and that damage has exceeded $6 million a year in the U.S. alone.

One function of the FAA database, Dolbeer said, would be to examine airports with strikes that involved substantial damage.

Experts said airports with the biggest bird problems are generally near waterways or agricultural areas.

"The birds are definitely on the rise," said Jon Russell, Western Pacific safety coordinator for the Airline Pilots Assn. "Birds come to eat, nest and loaf near airports." [Ha they loaf around. Figures. No good lazy terrorist birds breeding uncontrollably like welfare queens.]

Gregor noted that strikes are very rare, given that there are 60 million aircraft operations a year at airports with FAA control towers. [But shit don't let that stop you from forming a committee and getting the public all hopped up on the fear of wildlife strikes against jumbo jets.]

In a letter sent Tuesday to federal transportation officials, National Transportation Safety Board Acting Chairman Mark V. Rosenker noted that his agency has recommended since 1999 that the FAA make it mandatory for airplane operators to report bird strikes.

The FAA said it plans to work with the airline community to strengthen reporting.

Initially, the FAA proposed to keep portions of the database confidential. Allowing public access, the agency said, might discourage some carriers and airports from reporting incidents.

But some members of Congress and the National Transportation Safety Board criticized the proposal, saying that releasing the information is in the public interest. [Yes it helps with the perception management psyops operation.]


The Resistance Begins In Your Mind

This seems as good a time as any to remind you, dear reader, not to get all depressed. When I wrote yesterday Have a Nice Day, I really mean it. You can't let these people bring you down because that is exactly what they want. When you feel hopeless, they rub their hands together with glee. It's not hopeless, and you keep telling yourself that every single day. Fake it until you make it, because this battle is a battle of hearts and minds, just like that fucktard george bush kept saying. Your heart, and your mind. The people dragging us down want you to give up. It will make their lives so much easier if you just give up, and that's why you need to dig down deep and find your inner warrior who loves humanity and rustle up that creature make it roar. Come on you can do it.

Suraci knows it.
This is a difficult fight, and not a pleasant one. We who know what is transpiring in the world, by necessity, immerse ourselves in horror. We see it everywhere, and are shocked and disgusted, and in our own small, inconsequential way, we try to do something about it. It is rarely from our thoughts.

In the midst of this, we must not forget to enjoy our lives. If we allow them to so dominate our lives by their evil deeds, we allow them to win, to defeat us in this, our one and only life. To enjoy our lives, regardless of the vermin at large in the world seeking to destroy and maim and murder and conquer, is to defeat them.
James knows it.
Evil will always try to convince you that you, indeed everyone, are just the same as they are. If it were true then why would they bother with all the pressure to convince you? I have been subjected to extreme pressure to accept this view and I can tell that I know down to the very marrow of my bones that it is not true.

Many Christians inadvertantly help the evil in this and will tell us that we are all sinners; that we are all corrupt. That is the message all around us. It's almost like brainwashing, isn't it?! While it is certainly true we are far from perfect, that is a long way from saying we are are all evil in that we will always act corruptly and that that is the sum total of our hearts' desire.
And I know it. And I know other people who know it, and you need to be one of them. The constant negative drumbeat is engineered to suck the very life right out of you, to suck your will into a vortex of doom. You have to counter that, and it's tough to do while staying informed but find a way to connect with life. Life is good. These people trying to wreck everything, they will fail. You keep telling yourself that They Will Fail. Believe it because it's true. The evil are always defeated in the end. Be a rebel. Believe.


The Ultimate Hegelian Mindfuck

Yesterday I posted a Youtube video from CNN. As we know, CNN provides us a steady stream of government psyops. Therefore, we must consider that when CNN starts airing information from a UFO conference including explicit remarks about the US government needing to admit the truth, meaning disclose the presence of aliens, by the end of next month no less, maybe something is up here. I mean, do some people need our attention diverted from their taking down the world economy? Do you really think so?

Paraphrasing starting around 5:00 in: If it [the US government under Obama] doesn't disclose by the end of May [the existence of aliens], PRG has extensive resources and documentation that will be put out to the media, making it as difficult as possible for Obama to avoid this issue, on which the development of the human race hangs oh by the way. If Obama waits past the end of May, there's a 50:50 chance another nation will act preemptively, (no scratch that Freudian slip), proactively (that's the ticket) to disclose the alien presence. Like Nicky Sarkozy, for instance.

Here's a little discussion of it over at Cryptogon.

Kenny from Kenny's Sideshow left a very perceptive comment here yesterday, and so I want to call attention to this possibility. Because if something like this does go down and we're faced with aliens [PROBLEM], it's going to cause total chaos [REACTION] and people will not be able to think clearly. People need to think it through before it happens on the premise that it's a really elaborate trap designed to close the deal on the NWO agenda.

So here's the thing. Who or what is PRG, referenced in the video? (And who is that creepy woman with the lidded eyes at 4:20?)


Such a comprehensive site. Who has the time? I don't. I see the mission statement boils down to "What are going to do about it?" [SOLUTION] Mmm hmm.
Rockefeller Initiative, Clintons.....hmmm

I suppose if Obama or Sarkozy reveals ET's presence there will be only be one thing to do. We must unite as one world, under one government, using a global currency and build a world security system just in case some ET want to start some shit.

This would be way too big for a bunch of squabbling nations to handle. We would need one voice, one heart, one brave leader to speak for the world. A messiah to lead us into the promised land of the galaxies and tell us all what to do.

Knowing that we are not alone would cast doubts about current religions. I think we should have a new universal religion to embrace our new found neighbors and show world unity and peace.
Tithing required.

We can reach out to the ET's and become a popular tourist stop in their travels. Of course we may have to reduce our population by a few billion and clean up the place a little. No tourist wants to stay in a slum.

This new revelation would be just what we need. A new world....

I feel better already.
You can read about project Blue Beam here and also here. An important detail:
What are the New World Order plans? They plan the destruction of all people who believe in the Bible, who worship Jesus Christ, and the complete disappearance of Christianity to achieve this plan. The New World Order will change nations' laws in order that Christian religious beliefs and symbols - like the cross for instance - will be come unlawful. Only Easter and Christmas for instance will be replaced by New Age festivities around the world.
Yeah. That's sort of a dead giveaway, you know? Who hates Jesus? Anyway, let's see because Henry Makow has been talking about this too, and he even brings up the Urantia book which, as "luck" would have it, was tossed my way recently, and I didn't know what to make of it, having never heard of it before. And a funny thing happened, a stranger and fellow traveler was looking out for me and contacted me out of the blue to say Be Careful with that. And I'm so glad he did. So please think about this scenario now, while it still seems silly and flaky and ridiculous, and think it through so that you will have your wits about you should the need arise. And of course I hope it never does, but some of us have to have the nerve to bring this shit up just in case.
Starting in January, Penre has written an astonishing five-part series about a Tennessee-based, 35-year-old playboy- tycoon who Penre says is literally the incarnation of Lucifer but "redeemed." It's all hush-hush and Penre's life is in danger. He has been contacted by defectors who said young Supriem David Rockefeller dictates to the likes of Henry Kissinger, Zbig Brzezinski and George H.W. Bush. He is going to save mankind by instituting a benevolent New World Order. He wants to atone for the Rebellion against God which is the source of all of mankind's problems. He wants us to accept his rule so he can clean up the mess. (Right, and I have some land in Florida...)

"I truly do believe Supriem is Lucifer, " Penre says. Penre's acceptance of this hoax is worrisome. If an intelligent, rational person like Wes Penre can succumb, what will happen to the rest of us?


Penre explains Supriem's origins with a comic book legend straight out of Superman. Supriem's grandfather worked at Area 51 and met aliens "who told of the Supreme child who will be born in 1974 who will be the true Messiah, God incarnate and only part human. The child will have to choose which path to travel, to bring Revelations in the Bible to fruition or bring the planet into light and life from the Urantia book."

Penre was told each President of the United States has a Urantia Book in their office. It is known as the Blue Book, that is why the USAF called the UFO investigation Project Blue Book. "If this is true, it makes sense why people like Bush, Clinton, Obama and most of the other Presidents throughout history have eagerly worked towards the goal of a One World Government."

Evidently this psy-op is about substituting a Luciferian narrative --the Urantia Book-- for the Bible. It is about shifting the moorings of Western civilization from Judeo Christian to occult foundations.
And so forth. I have looked around the Urantia book and if I had to pick one word to describe it, I would have to choose confusing. Confusion is the hallmark of the evil one.

Anyway, not to get off on a wild goose-chase here, but they [the Illuminati] have the technology and they have the motive to pull something like this off. I like Henry Makow's conclusion:
Although this is a hoax, it does elucidate our situation. It makes me think of Orson Welles "War of the Worlds" where people actually went into a panic because of a realistic newscast of a Martian invasion.

Although I have always been favorable to the idea of UFO's and aliens, I now see how they could be used to justify world government. What if the news told us Supriem Rockefeller was indeed Lucifer with super powers, the result of prophesy and alien-human cross breeding? (And I thought Barack Obama was cast for this role... )

The Illuminati watchword is "Believe what i tell you, not what you see." The occult is all about smoke and mirrors. Prophesy cannot be verified and tends to be deterministic. All the more reason we should believe only what we witness and scrutinize ourselves. We need to make common sense the final standard. We should be guided by our innate sense of what is natural, honest, just, healthy and wholesome.

Supriem David Rockefeller is a psy-op designed to test our gullibility and willingness to accept tyranny in exchange for a spurious promise of a better world.
Have a nice day and stick with Jesu come hell or high water. That's my advice.


Acts of God? Depends on who you worship.

We are attacked from all angles: physically, financially, psychologically.

What is the goal? Power and control. Population reduction, the remainder being nothing more than slaves.
The Elite want a global government as a means of power & control to enforce dramatic population reductions. The programs and tools they are using now in various places (i.e. one-child policies, forced vaccinations, etc.) will ultimately devolve into systematic genocide.
Does that sound a little crazy? Fine. Watch this video and go read the post.

Does it still sound crazy?
X-wars are being fought that make it look like nature or God is doing it. The masses of people believe they are in relative peace, not realizing that the earthquake that killed thousands was not accidental. State-of-the-art military technology uses the earth itself as a weapon. World War Three has probably started and we don’t even know it. Chemtrail spraying appears to compromise our immune systems. It may be lowering our resistance to both disease and to the removal of our basic rights. Aerosols are also being sprayed to seed the atmosphere with barium. The HAARP Patent calls for spraying barium in the atmosphere to increase HAARP’s efficacy. HAARP is capable of more than you are likely to believe. HAARP quadrupled its power and published plans call for operating HAARP at one billion watts. HAARP can cause massive blackouts. Its inventor Bernard Eastlund seeks to abort tornadoes and to "steer' parts of the ionosphere around with it, among other things.
Here's an expanded definition of X Wars, from this source:
"Special secret mode of conducting wars. This concept was developed, when it became clear that direct military conflict will inevitably result in nuclear self-destruction. Then the idea appeared that the battle can be conducted while pretending that the conditions of peace are being maintained. In fact, the war is going on, but by the other, "quiet" means. They include the methods of economic and financial diversions, information-psychological technologies aimed at degrading the social structure of the attacked people. Biological diversions infected cattle or agricultural plants or even people, not by some disease causing death, but by an infection planting panic and confusion within the society. Certainly, technical devices causing accidents not only to planes, but to power systems might be created. During the period of "Cold War" much money was invested into the development of the X-war methods and technologies."
We've seen all this stuff. It is happening and has been happening, and it dovetails into the various theological end-times scenarios. Our leaders have secretly developed and deployed technologies that allow them to manipulate the weather, for example, to the point that they can cause earthquakes, droughts, and floods. They have secretly developed diseases in laboratories specifically designed to harm certain populations. They have the perfect diabolical cover for their crimes: these unfortunate events are simply Acts of God.

I wrote about this in January, but it just recently came up again in conversation. This is the definition of X Wars -- events that must be blamed either on God OR on Mother Nature.
It's armageddon week on the History Channel. Isn't that exciting? I decided to watch some last night. First I was treated to a show about the bible codes. The next show was about biblical prophesy and whether or not we are in the end times.

As I'm watching the second show (which I did not finish watching), the narrator asks a question that went something like this: Are all these disasters (floods, pandemics, wars, suffering, etc.) the work of God or are they simply natural events?

A or B people. Pick one. Because the History Channel is suggesting that either our problems are God's fault, or they are just unfortunate events that happen to happen, you know, by chance. So if armageddon is really coming, and the four horsemen and all that jazz, just you make sure you direct your anger at God or mother nature. It doesn't matter. Both ways leave you utterly helpless. There's nothing you can do, see?

Just ask yourself, did God or mother nature create nuclear weapons, biological weapons, chemical weapons, all manner of guns and fighting machines, fiat money, debt, drugs, poisons, etc.? No. People made these things in their laboratories and boardrooms. And what about the secret weapons that mimic mother nature? Hmm? Scalar technologies that can disrupt weather, cause earthquakes, droughts, floods, hurricanes, etc. How convenient is that? Just shake your fist at mother nature kids. And what about things like anthrax and bird flu? Did mother nature tweak those things to make them extra lethal, or did people do that secretly in labs? And what about all the life-saving technologies that we never ever hear about? Cures for cancer? Water purification? Clean energy? Do you really think that scientists have only discovered bad things, or have they also discovered many wonderful things that have been locked up to be unveiled only after a great shakedown?

Armageddon is being brought on by people. Powerful and greedy people, who enjoy making others suffer, who enjoy raking in lots and lots of cash for themselves, who use things like the bible codes to arrange their plans.
Is it Good for the Jews? Bill Keller, NY Times, 3/8/03

Two weeks ago, a group of senior intelligence officials in the Defense Department sat for an hour listening to a briefing by a writer who claims " I am not making this up " that messages encoded in the Hebrew text of the Old Testament provide clues to the whereabouts of Osama bin Laden. One of the officials told me that they had agreed to meet the writer, Michael Drosnin, author of a Nostradamus-style best seller, without understanding that he was promoting Biblical prophecy. Still, rather than shoo him away, they listened politely as he consumed several man-hours of valuable intelligence-crunching time. Apparently he has given similar briefings to top officials of Mossad, the Israeli intelligence agency.
Now think about this. These people knew that Osama bin Laden, aka Tim Osman, their intelligence asset, was long dead. So what would they do with this bible code stuff but arrange their psyops, find out what it says in the bible codes and then make sure to "fit the facts" around the prophesy/policy? I mean, do the bible codes tell us who really killed JFK or anyone else, or do they just parrot back the CIA/Mossad psyops answers like Lee Harvey Oswald? God, c'mon. Throw us a frikkin bone. (Does God work for the CIA -- or it's probably Mossad, huh, since God sticks with his peeps.)

These greedy evil bastards are bringing about the armageddon prophesies with their secret weapons and their not so secret weapons. They are creating hell on earth under the cover of the bible. Don't blame God or mother nature. No matter what the tragedy or "natural" disaster, look for the hidden hand of evil men, and that is who you can blame probably nine times out of ten.
This is simply too conspiratorial for many people to believe, but that doesn't mean it isn't true.
Those who believe that major world events result from planning are laughed at for believing in the "conspiracy theory of history." Of course, no one in this modern day and age really believes in the conspiracy theory of history -except those who have taken the time to study the subject. When you think about it, there are really only two theories of history. Either things happen by accident neither planned nor caused by anybody, or they happen because they are planned and somebody causes them to happen. In reality, it is the "accidental theory of history" preached in the unhallowed Halls of Ivy which should be ridiculed. Otherwise, why does every recent administration make the same mistakes as the previous ones? Why do they repeat the errors of the past which produce inflation, depressions and war? Why does our State Department "stumble" from one Communist-aiding "blunder" to another? If you believe it is all an accident or the result of mysterious and unexplainable tides of history, you will be regarded as an "intellectual" who understands that we live in a complex world. If you believe that something like 32,496 consecutive coincidences over the past forty years stretches the law of averages a bit, you are a kook!
The standard must be truth. If it's true, let's bring it into the light. After all, that's what God -- the real one not these vicious, murderous imposters -- instructed us to do.
No one lights a lamp and hides it in a jar or puts it under a bed. Instead, he puts it on a stand, so that those who come in can see the light. For there is nothing hidden that will not be disclosed, and nothing concealed that will not be known or brought out into the open. Luke 8:16-17


Is this day significant for the Illuminati?

The Branch Dividian siege in Waco, TX ended in flames in 1993.

The Alfred P. Murrah Building was destroyed in 1995.

Cardinal Ratzinger became pope in 2005.
The Illuminati have a special fondness for 19th April as a date for human sacrifice. Both the Waco and Oklahoma massacres, orchestrated by the Illuminati, took place on 19th April. That date marks the start of the 13-day occult period leading up to the great black sabbath of 1st May, known as Bealtaine. The key event marking the inauguration of this major phase in the Illuminati plan was the Twin Towers attack of 2001. Thus, having opened the cycle in New York, the Illuminati will also close it in the same city with a nuclear explosion. The date they appear to have been selected for this purpose is 19th April 2009, which falls 66,666 hours after the 9/11 attacks.
We shall see.


The Talent for Hypocrisy

When does all this abuse end? The abuse of you, and of me, and of practically everyone in the world at the hands of a self-proclaimed 'elite?' It ends when enough people disabuse themselves of the idea that we owe people in power the courtesy of the benefit of the doubt. They've been using that as a cudgel to beat us to death, in case you haven't noticed. And they will never relinquish the cudgel voluntarily.

Let me make this easy. Here you can read a horrible story of an eleven year old Indian girl beaten into a coma by her teacher. She died.
The incident allegedly occurred when Shannoo failed to recite the English alphabet in class. Angered by this, the teacher allegedly hit Shannoo's head against the table and made her stand in the sun for over two hours. Unable to stand the heat, Shannoo fainted and was found unconscious by her younger sister, who studies in the same school.
Cut and dried psychopathic behavior causing the death of an innocent child. Who will disagree?

OK then, what about the innocent children and others who have died in Gaza and Lebanon at the hands of the Israelis, in Iraq and Afghanistan at the hands of Americans and other coalition soldiers (to achieve Israel's goals), in Pakistan, in Somalia, in the United States of America? What about the deaths of innocents caused by cold-blooded calculated greed? Isn't it even worse than some sick frustrated elementary school teacher killing a child in India, horrible as that is, when the perpetrators sit in their glamorous air-conditioned offices and conference rooms and presidential quarters ordering the deaths of millions of innocents simply to make money and consolidate power? Let me tell you, it's the same shit different day. Don't let the nice suits fool you. Psychopaths are psychopaths. The more dangerous ones just kill a lot more people before they get caught.

Sociopathic Through Lines
What then separates the SAPs [Socially Adept Socio/Psychopaths] from the failed (and caught) sociopaths? I see the situation as being the balancing of two countervailing pressures. One pressure, drive actually, is to reach out, take and dominate. The other pressure is simply the need to get away with it, which has both internal and external aspects. Failed sociopaths lack the internal resources to restrain themselves [like the teacher in India - Ed.] (apparently, some people, including many professional researchers, consider only these individuals to be true sociopaths — they couldn’t be more wrong). Other sociopaths have the internal resources, but only if the external environment (i.e., the threat of some punishment) necessitates it. The continuum is really a scale of talent at being hypocritical. The advanced SAPs are simply magnificent hypocrites – able to bide their time, be patient, realistically assess their position in the food chain (the concept of the food chain is central to sociopath life stories), restrain their arrogance, desire for dominance and rudeness and wait for opportunities without consequence for indulging their sociopathic wants, etc. Hypocrisy is simply their main lifetool, as swimming is the main lifetool for a fish.
How much easier must it be to realistically assess one's position in the food chain when one is literally at the TOP of the food chain? Oh, there's some jostling around up there, no doubt. But how easy it must be to bide their time and be patient, with unimaginable resources -- armies, the media, defenseless populations -- at their fingertips. Think about it. Are these people who lead our nations and corporations really so very impressive? Is it so hard to be patient when you're king of the world?

Get over them. Stop being impressed by mass murderers just because they got elected once or twice. Big fucking deal.


Do you need to be hit on the head with a frying pan?

The (air quotes) solution to the (air quotes) problem of Somali pirates is to internationalize the waters off Somalia.

That's right. Internationalize those strategic waters, just as Israel wants.

CNN helpfully drives the bus directly to the preferred Hegelian solution.
Both the United States and France pulled off-high profile rescues in the waters off the Horn of Africa in the past week, killing a total of five pirates to free hostages who had been holed up for days.

While those operations gained international attention, there have been dozens of attacks so far this year. Experts say it will take an international effort to combat the rising number of attacks.

"In our view, what France and the U.S. has done is exactly the right thing for a flag state to do, and if all flag states were to take that kind of robust action against the pirates we would not have the problems of Somali piracy to the extent that we have today," said Capt. Pottengal Mukundan, director of the piracy reporting center at the International Maritime Bureau.

Pirates also attacked a U.S. ship Tuesday night but didn't make it aboard. The pirates had fled the scene by the time the Navy arrived. In a separate incident hours later, the French Navy captured 11 suspected pirates off the coast of Kenya.

[Now watch how the article lays out the vast scope of the problem, at the same time conveying that the international community is already involved, so we're already half-way there, see?]

But securing the region is no easy task. The area involved off the coasts of Somalia and Kenya, including the Gulf of Aden, is more than 1.1 million square miles -- four times the size of the state of Texas.

At any given time, a number of nations could be in the region to protect the seas. While the countries try to coordinate efforts, there are limits to the extent of information they share.

In addition to the United States and the European Union nations, NATO, Russia, China and South Korea are among others patrolling the waters. Generally, more than a dozen ships in the region are working to counter piracy issues. Some countries also provide maritime air assets.

But even with that presence, the closest military ship could be days away from a merchant ship under attack, given the size of the region.

Following the Sunday rescue of Capt. Richard Phillips, who was freed after snipers killed three pirates, President Obama praised the efforts of the U.S. military and other departments involved, and vowed to halt the rise of piracy in the region.

"To achieve that goal, we're going to have to continue to work with our partners to prevent future attacks," Obama said.

Already this year, pirates have attacked at least 80 ships, according to the IMB. Of those, 19 were successful hijackings. In 2008, pirates attacked 111 boats and hijacked 42.

Two pirates in Somalia vowed revenge earlier this week, following the U.S. and French operations.

[TWO PIRATES vowed revenge. TWO. Danger Will Robinson.]

"We have decided to kill U.S. and French sailors if they happen to be among our future hostages," said Abdullahi Ahmed, a member of a pirate group based at Harardhere, a coastal town in central Somalia.

The U.S. military acknowledged Sunday that its actions to rescue Phillips could increase the risk of violence. [wink wink] The Navy is trying to beef up patrols in the area, but it has limited ships. The focus now will be to try to get more countries to put more of their ships into the effort.

"What we have seen in the last few months is the attacks being displaced towards the east coast of Somalia with its vast expanse of the Arabian Sea behind it, so it is a bigger challenge to monitor this part of the seas properly," Mukundan said.

Pentagon officials are looking at a variety of options for halting piracy, in conjunction with other departments like State and Justice that are looking at ways to help the Somali government and ways to try the pirates.

Shipping companies are unlikely to deter the pirates themselves, partly because of the financial burden. [cue the violins] Last year, about 30,000 ships passed through the Gulf of Aden -- and there were 42 successful hijackings. In some situations, just paying ransom is still cheaper than outfitting ships with a private armed security team.

[Here the article goes into shifting blame and responsibility around for the situation. Notice who seems to be to blame...and who does not. Notice how the US is positioned as the reluctant hero.]

"There really is only one solution," said Ken Menkhaus, a former special adviser to the United Nations operation in Somalia. "It's going to take a government that sees piracy and ending piracy as a critical tool in improving their credibility in the eyes of the world."

Gortney said Monday that the piracy around the world "stems from activity where there is lawlessness, lack of governance, economic instability; things of that nature. And wherever you have that, you're going to have criminal activity at sea."

Ethiopia invaded Somalia in December 2006 to prop up a U.N.-backed transitional government in Mogadishu after a hard-line Islamist group overtook the capital and seized power. Earlier this year, Ethiopia withdrew all of its troops.

Efforts to replace the Ethiopians with an African Union-led peacekeeping mission faltered as the violence worsened. The lawlessness also spilled onto the seas off the Horn of Africa, where the international vessels are routinely hijacked by pirates, suspected to be Somali.

A U.N. resolution gives the United States the authority to conduct operations inside Somalia, but the memories of an unsuccessful effort in 1993 are reason enough for some to stay out of the region.

Seventeen years ago, Somali militiamen shot down a U.S. Black Hawk helicopter during a failed U.S. attempt to capture a warlord. The images of American troops being dragged through the streets led to the withdrawal of U.N. forces and years of anarchy in Somalia.

Recalling what came to be known as "Black Hawk Down," CNN Senior Political Analyst Gloria Borger said a lot of people in the Obama administration are likely to be skeptical about becoming deeply involved in the region.

"Everybody knows the area," she said. "They're just very reluctant to start going down that path again, particularly given the fact that we're already fighting two wars in Iraq and Afghanistan."

But, she said, something will have to be done, because "the status quo is completely unacceptable."

"That may mean more Navy ships. It may mean different routes for Navy ships. We're not sure. [wink wink] But, you know, they have got about a million square miles of water there that they have to police. And it's just not an easy thing to do. And, as the president said, it can't be unilateral. We have to do it with other countries," she said.

[OK, time to kick ass and take names. Here's the can-do attitude.]

Kim Petersen, president of SeaSecure, agreed that a coalition approach is necessary, but disagreed with the comparison to 1993.

"I think this is very different from Mogadishu. It's very different from Black Hawk Down. We're talking about an area where ... the pirates are working out of, these are fairly isolated. There are very few roads going in and out of these regions. It's very easy for us to contain them," he said.

"We have the resources available to us in the region already in order to escalate a new policy there where we actually take the fight to the pirates," he said.

"What we really need to do now is address what the real threat is here," he said, arguing that it's not just a threat to people and the supply chain. "It's also the likelihood, or at least the possibility, that organizations like Al-Shabaab, which is al Qaeda in Somalia, are going to subsume the piracy trade, because we've done such a good job of depriving them of their revenues through electronic banking controls ... They're looking for revenues, and this is a great business model for them."
Uh huh. That's why the article is titled "ROBUST action" could curtail piracy, expert says.

And Peterson's company, SeaSecure, stands to do great business from this piracy problem. No conflict of interest here. Nope.
"It is a frightening prospect in this day and age of weapons of mass destruction and terrorists'' that vessels are arriving from ports which have virtually no security, said Kim Petersen, chief executive of SeaSecure, a Fort Lauderdale-based maritime security consulting firm. He's also executive director of the Maritime Security Council, whose members include major commercial and cruise lines as well as ports.
Sweet deal, huh? Psyops at work, making war, making money.


Talented. Mmm hmm.

Buckle up you're going on a trip

Um, ok. This is a trip. I just went through the whole thing, parts 1 & 2. A great deal I agree with, though I'm withholding judgment* and want you to read it all just to get to the ending, because I and others have arrived at these conclusions via different routes.
There is an expression: forewarned is forearmed. Here is the warning:

The possibilities being considered for us by the manipulators include a global flu pandemic to drastically reduce the world's population (there are too many of us for them to control!); and World War Three - or at least the threat of it - as the excuse to install a One World Government for total global domination.

For the moment, they are biding their time and mainly concentrating on adding control measures to stave off the chaos expected when the veil hiding their plans is lifted*. At that point people will have to face up to the truth, and who knows what will happen then?

The situation will necessarily deteriorate before it improves. The awakening of the people will be marked by a period of chaos as the manipulators try desperately to keep their plan on track.

Believe all this if you will. Or choose not to believe it!

You will never hear the truth or indeed the gravity of the situation on the news stations. All the media is owned by the manipulators and they simply feed us a series of stories designed to make us think in a way which suits the continuation of the whole process.

Laying it on with a trowel

Naive Americans will be lapping this up.

Reporting from Mombasa, Kenya -- The first mate of the cargo ship Maersk Alabama, whose crew defeated an attempted hijacking, today urged President Obama to defeat the Somali pirates terrorizing one of the world's busiest shipping channels.

Shane Murphy said the crew had vowed to use its experience last week to save other crews in future.


In the jubilance that followed Sunday's dramatic sea rescue of the ship's skipper, Murphy said the U.S. Navy's efforts to save Capt. Richard Phillips offered inspiration to the nation at a difficult juncture.

"In America now, things are down. It's not the best of times. Hopefully everybody in America can latch onto this maybe and use it as a sign of hope to show what being American is about," he said in Mombasa, Kenya, where the ship is tied up.


Murphy, 33, called for strong American action against Somali pirates, who typically base themselves in the ocean in "mother ships" and launch their attacks using powerful speedboats, boarding with grappling hooks or ladders.

"We would like to implore President Obama to use all his resources and increase his commitment to end this Somali pirate scourge," he said, reading from a prepared statement. [PREPARED BY WHOM?]


"It is a crisis. Wake up!" he said. "This crew was lucky to be out of this with every one of us alive. We won't be that lucky again."

"Right now there are still ships being taken, right now as we are standing here. America has got to be at the forefront of this. It's time for us to step up and put an end to this crisis.


In Washington, Obama pledged today to take action. He praised the U.S. Navy personnel who had freed Phillips and insisted that the United States was prepared to act against such piracy.

"I want to be very clear that we are resolved to halt the rise of [piracy] in that region," Obama said. "And to achieve that goal we're going to have to continue to work with our partners to prevent future attacks, we have to continue to be prepared to confront them when they arise, and we have to ensure that those who commit acts of piracy are held accountable for their crimes."

A crew of 16 on an Italian ship was the most recent to be taken hostage. It was seized Saturday and arrived the following day in Somalia, where a ransom will likely be negotiated. Some estimates put the number of seafarers being held hostage in the region at about 270.

Somali piracy has increased dramatically since 2007, with 42 ship hijackings last year, as increasing numbers of Somalis try to get a cut of the lucrative ransoms shipping companies pay. But the first kidnapping of Americans galvanized U.S. attention last week.


Murphy said the crewmembers of the U.S.-flagged but Danish-owned Maersk Alabama wouldn't release the exact details of what happened during the initial attack on their cargo; instead, they planned to use the information to help other crews evade or repel pirates.

"This group here has a lot of valuable knowledge that's going to save lives, and that's what we're doing here," he said. "That's why we haven't been able to talk to you. We're trying to gather this knowledge and put it in a package."

Murphy spoke to Phillips on Sunday after U.S. military snipers killed the three pirates holding the skipper. The first mate said the crew was looking forward to being reunited with him.

"I just got off the phone with our captain, Richard Phillips, for the first time, and it was an extremely emotional experience for all of us to actually hear his voice and to hear the condition he was in.

"Ultimately everybody here today has the captain to thank for their lives and their freedom," Murphy said. "But additionally it was an entire crew-wide effort. You will find there are going to be many stories of individual heroism coming out of this. But as a group, everybody played a part, everybody."

Murphy hinted the crew stuck to a minutely detailed plan [?????] to overcome the pirates. He said the crew never fought the pirates, but neither did they ever surrender their ship.

"We never gave up," he said.


Murphy said the U.S. should lead the fight against piracy, no matter what nationality the hijacked crews were: "At sea, it's a global community; it doesn't come down to nations. There's a whole world out there and we all look out for each other."

Murphy spoke emotionally of the sacrifice merchant seamen make to support their families, spending most of their time at sea, and he described the mutual support between crewmembers.

"We don't go home to our families. We work out here. These are our families. It's not always easy. But in times of crisis, just like a family, we're there for each other."
And let us know forget that ISRAEL is the country who wants these waters internationalized. Why is that? Galal Nassar in Al-Ahram Weekly, December 2008:
SEAS OF STRATEGIC IMPORTANCE: Somalia perches on the most important maritime channels in the world. Through this passageway passes Arab oil on its way to European and American markets. It is also a relatively inexpensive route for the shipment of Western industrial products to Asia and Africa. Approximately 10 per cent of the world's maritime cargo passes through these waters, according to recent statistics. The maritime channel has special strategic significance for Washington and Israel. For the former, it serves as the vital link between the US's Sixth Fleet in the Mediterranean and its Fifth Fleet stationed off the coast of Bahrain and its Seventh Fleet in the Indian Ocean. Tel Aviv, meanwhile, has not forgotten that Egypt together with Yemen closed the Bab Al-Mandeb upon the outbreak of the 1973 October War, which came as an additional blow to Israeli and international shipping with the closure of the Suez Canal following the Israeli occupation of Sinai in 1967. Israel has been pressing for the internationalisation of the Red Sea. With its ships no longer confined to a narrow lane as they pass to and from the port of Eilat, it would have much greater manoeuvrability in those waters as well as the opportunity to secure supply lines for its naval units. There is no overstating what a military advantage this would bring to the Hebrew state and what a threat this would pose to Arab national security.
