I’ve already proudly admitted that I’m a bit of a geek. I own multiple editions of the original Star Wars trilogy, know far too much about the secret origins of comic book heroes, and long ago recognized the literary genius of George R. R. Martin. Hell, at any given time there are more USB cables dangling from my computer than cans of food in my pantry… and I get really, really excited when I find an effective way to simultaneously use each of those USB cables.
This also means that I’m privy to secretive knowledge and information that often eludes the general public. I understand, for example, how to recognize the cunning actions of a global conspiracy that seeks to suppress contemporary political, economic and social systems and install the fabled New World Order.
It’s true folks. You may not want to believe it, but you really need to believe it.
The latest treacherous ploy was subtly undertaken while the country was distracted by Thanksgiving, Christmas and National Cupcake Day. It almost slipped the attention of the mainstream media… perhaps because these mainstream media is largely a pawn for these dark forces.
The plot originates with Aves Palaneognathae and Aves Neognathe. The general public often refers to these vicious little harbingers of death as “birds.” They’re again spreading the bird flu, and humanity needs to stand up and take notice of the implications. Again, you may not want to take notice, but you really need to take notice.
Look, I’ve seen enough George Romero flicks to know that outbreaks of disease are often the result of seemingly inconspicuous medical research gone awry. Max Brooks holds a special place on my bookshelf, if for no other reason than his written effort to explain the implications of these outbreaks. Fox Mulder and Dana Scully tried to bring widespread attention to the manipulation of these situations by powerful yet secret organizations. They were, however, discredited by the unseen powers, who falsely depicted them as fictional characters and cancelled their broadcasts.
Not surprisingly, researchers have created a new highly contagious and fatal strain of the H5N1 bird flu. They manipulated the existing virus, mucking around with its structure and tinkering with its properties, until they crafted a new strain that is now likely able to be transmitted between humans. If the genetically altered strain is truly able to be passed from one person to another, it could cause a global flu pandemic that could kill upwards of 50 million people. Or more.
The World Health Organization’s response has been underwhelming. In its initial statement, WHO minimized the global consequences of the research, likely in an attempt to quell the public’s appreciation of the gravity of the situation. It first said that
[w]hile it is clear that conducting research to gain such knowledge must continue, it is also clear that certain research, and especially that which can generate more dangerous forms of the virus….has risks
Of course, the organization followed this statement by issuing more nonsense. It almost casually noted that it was “deeply concerned about the potential negative consequences” of the research.
Potential schmotential. There are actual consequences. Even the current strain of H5N1 is highly pathogenic and kills most birds and nearly 60 percent of the people it infects. It has already infected nearly 600 people, killing nearly 350. It has also resulted in the culling or killing of over 400 birds and has caused economic losses that have been estimated at $20 billion.
Fear not, though. The media claims that bird flu should have already been eliminated from nearly all of the countries that experienced exposure to it.
Whatever. Two birds recently tested positive for H5N1 in Hong Kong. Eight Cambodians recently died after being infected with the bird flu. Not surprisingly, several weeks ago, a Chinese male recently tested positive for a contagious strain of avian flu. He almost immediately died of multiple organ failure… yet the populous is supposed to take comfort in the suggestion that the disease has been eliminated in nearly all relevant countries. Again, whatever.
At least two fearless men are now demonstrating remarkable courage in speaking out against the manipulation of the H5N1 virus. Dr. D. A. Henderson, a scholar at the Center for Biosecurity at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center and a leader in eradicating the smallpox virus, claims that the research should never have been conducted and that the risks outweighed any potential benefit that could be derived from the work. Dr. Richard H. Ebright, a professor at Rutgers University and an an expert in bioweapons, agreed with Dr. Henderson, but further explained that:
This research should not have been done… [The manipulated strain] will inevitably escape, and within a decade.
If their opinions and predictions translate to reality, 2012 is going to be a wild ride. Break out those tinfoil hats, folks. They may not protect you from the bird flu, but at least they block the mind probe.
