Air Force One Manhattan flyover sending a message to Obama?

According to the Department of Defense and the mainstream media, yesterday's flyover by a plane that is used to fly the president (it's called Air Force One when the president is on board) and two F-16s over Manhattan, causing thousands to flee in panic, was just an innocent photo op. But if that was the case, why did the DoD alert the NYCPD with directives to local authorities not to disclose information about it?

According to NYPD Spokesman Paul Browne, "typically a flight like this would be publicised to avoid causing a panic, but they were under orders not to in this case." See: "Air Force One flyover sparks panic in New York."

In a memo obtained by CBS 2 HD, the Federal Aviation Administration's James Johnston said the agency was aware of "the possibility of public concern regarding DOD (Department of Defense) aircraft flying at low altitudes" in an around New York City. But they demanded total secrecy from the NYPD, the Secret Service, the FBI and even the mayor's office and threatened federal sanctions if the secret got out.

Why would the DoD need to keep a photo op secret, especially when it was going to be seen by thousands anyway, and (they must have known) would cause a panic?

As someone who has a good friend who was seriously traumatized from the events of 9/11 (she was at her apartment directly across the street from the towers on 9/11 and saw people jumping), this event must be beyond her comprehension and another blow to her fragile constitution. Here is a video of how people reacted yesterday.

It also doesn't seem plausible that the DoD wouldn't tell Obama that a Air Force One plane would be slowly flying over Manhattan mimicking the 9/11 flight path, followed by a fighter jet. Obama and Mayor Bloomberg said they didn't know about it and were "furious" upon hearing the news. From the UK Guardian linked above:

"Federal officials provided few other details and would not say why the public and area building security managers weren't notified.

President Barack Obama was furious, a White House official who did not wish to be identified told the Associated Press."

Here's Mayor Bloomberg on the flyover:

This event and the excuse for it just doesn't pass the smell test. Even New Yorkers are not buying the "photo op" charade: check out these New York Times comments. It seems like something else was going on. Was someone sending a message to the new president to turn down the rhetoric on prosecuting Bush officials for torture? Or possibly to put pressure on him to go along with the swine flu program and mandatory vaccinations?

Even if we don't want to get into conspiracy theories, if anything, Louis Caldera, the White House Military Office Director, who claimed responsibility for this incredible stupid stunt should be fired. But knowing how our government in the past rewarded incompetence and failure, he might just be given a medal.

Mexican swine flu outbreak a man-made pandemic?

A company that delivered contaminated vaccines with live avian flu and human flu viruses earlier this year is now to lead the charge for designing vaccines for the Mexican Swine Flu outbreak.

According the Chicago Breaking News Center Baxter International, Inc. will take a leading role in creating a vaccine for the latest outbreak:

"Deerfield-based medical product giant Baxter International Inc. is working with the World Health Organization on a potential vaccine to curb the spread of the swine flu outbreak in Mexico, the company confirmed today.

Baxter, which has a growing vaccine business, has worked with foreign countries in the past to develop vaccines for the H5N1 virus commonly known as bird flu. Baxter has a cell-based technology that allows the company to more rapidly produce vaccines in the event of a pandemic than a decades-old method that uses eggs to process vaccines and can take weeks or even months longer." See "Baxter to work to contain Mexico flu outbreak"

This is a significant development due to the fact that the Baxter International, Inc., is still being investigated by the World Health Organization and the European Center for Disease Control as to why, and how, they mixed live avian flu (H5H1) viruses with a human flu (H3N2) viruses, which, had they been administered, could have set of a global pandemic earlier this year.

According to authorities, this contamination could not have been a mistake due to industry and government enforced lab safety protocols designed to prevent such contamination. For instance, Baxter International adheres to something called BSL3 (Biosafety Level 3) lab safety protocols that put in place to prevent cross-contamination of materials.

As explained on Wikipedia:

“Laboratory personnel have specific training in handling pathogenic and potentially lethal agents, and are supervised by competent scientists who are experienced in working with these agents. This is considered a neutral or warm zone. All procedures involving the manipulation of infectious materials are conducted within biological safety cabinets or other physical containment devices, or by personnel wearing appropriate personal protective clothing and equipment. The laboratory has special engineering and design features.”

If Baxter were following BSL3 procedures this contamination could only be explained through 1: either gross negligence or 2: willful contamination.

So, why would a company that was caught recently distributing live avian and human flu vaccines, perhaps with the intent to stage a global flu pandemic, be allowed to develop a vaccine for the World Health Organization to combat the new swine flu outbreak? This defies logic and a good explanation... that is, unless that logic and explanation is a bad one.

For instance, we might want to contemplate that a man-made epidemic could be a useful tool to create the conditions for greater control over society by creating the appearance that a government is protecting citizens, while at the same time asking citizens to give up much of their freedoms and liberties. Also, there is the added benefit that one can make enormous profits if one has the cure.

Should we immediately dismiss such unpalatable notions when in our recent history we have seen people in high places in government and industry using fear to consolidate power and to profit from such scenarios? As Joseph Mercola writes:

"Not long ago, President Bush sought to instill panic in this country by telling us a minimum of 200,000 people will die from the avian flu pandemic, but it could be as bad as 2 million deaths in this country alone.

This hoax is then used to justify the immediate purchase of 80 million doses of Tamiflu, a worthless drug that in no way shape or form treats the avian flu, but only decreases the amount of days one is sick and can actually contribute to the virus having more lethal mutations.

So the U.S. placed an order for 20 million doses of this worthless drug at a price of $100 per dose. That comes to a staggering $2 billion.

We are being told that Roche manufactures Tamiflu and, in a recent New York Times article, they were battling whether or not they would allow generic drug companies to help increase their production.

But if you dig further you will find that a drug was actually developed by a company called Gilead that 10 years ago gave Roche the exclusive rights to market and sell Tamiflu...

...If you read the link below from Gilead, you'll discover Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld was made the chairman of Gilead in 1997.

Since Rumsfeld holds major portions of stock in Gilead, he will handsomely profit from the scare tactics of the government that is being used to justify the purchase of $2 billion of Tamiflu."

Rumsfeld and the Bush administration also tried to scare the population into buying and stockpiling Vistide, a vaccine to combat a disease that is virtually extinct, that is, except in labs -- smallpox. F. William Engdahl writes in the article "Tamiflu, Vistide and the Pentagon Agenda":

"The scare around smallpox and what to do was curiously similar then as it is today against Bird Flu pandemics. Defense Secretary Rumsfeld at that time ordered members of the Armed Forces to be inoculated against smallpox, an inoculation with horrendous side-effects. Rumsfeld’s smallpox package also included ordering Pentagon stockpiling of a drug named Vistide, supposedly to minimize side-effects of smallpox infection should it occur.

The Bush Administration had made repeated attempts to convince the public and above all, the health and medical profession to go with mass inoculation against smallpox. In 2002 the CDC and certain high Administration officials were calling for pre-emptive smallpox inoculation of broad sectors of the population against threat of terrorists unleashing the pox. The Government began stockpiling hundreds of millions of smallpox vaccine doses."

As we know, fear sells — sells policy; sells products; sells freedoms. It even sells movies. The script from V for Vendetta sums up the motivations of a fascist elite:

"The socially-conservative and openly fascist Norsefire party led a purge to restore order; enemies of the state (Muslims, Jews, blacks, homosexuals, communists) were kidnapped by the secret police during the night. The country was divided over the loss of freedom until a bioterrorist attack occurred, killing about 80,000 people. The fear generated by the attack allowed Norsefire to silence opposition and win the next election by a landslide. A cure for the virus was discovered soon afterwards by the Norsefire company, Viadoxin. With the silent consent of the people, Norsefire turned Britain totalitarian, with their leader Adam Sutler as High Chancellor. The virus had been engineered by Norsefire as a plot to gain power, through deadly experimentation on "social deviants" and political dissidents at Larkhill detention center. V had been one of the prisoners, but instead of being killed by the experiments, he had gained heightened mental and physical abilities. V eventually destroyed the center and escaped, vowing to take revenge on Norsefire's regime." — V for Vendetta Movie Description

Are we beginning to see another example of truth mimicking fiction?

(It has been reported by various news organizations that military flights have increased dramatically during the month of April at San José's Mineta Airport, right before first reports of the swine flu outbreak. According to KLIV 1590 "Charter flights from the U.S. military will be taking off and landing at Mineta San Jose International Airport during the next few weeks -- but it's all very mysterious. Airport spokesman David Vossbrink says the military is not providing any details about the flights, but there will be a significant number of them."

Song of the Somali Pirate

Four Somalis on a cargo freight
Yo ho ho and a tanker of scum
Overfishing and dumping brought 'em their fate
Yo ho ho and a tanker of scum
The mates were fixed by their terrible plight
Women and children dying from radiation such a horrible sight
And pleas to the UN were scuttled outright;
by four days investigation, all is alright
And there they lay, dead and sick on the beach
Like break o'day in a oozing den.
Yo ho ho and a tanker of scum

Twenty two sailors on the Alabama's list
Yo ho ho and a tanker of scum
They say they're bringing food, but why all the guns?
Yo ho ho and a tanker of scum
The captain gives up his life for the ransom of the crew
And the pirates abandon ship after much ado
The sailors bring their bounty a Mombasa way
And there it lay, under covers
Dripped down from up-staring eyes
In murk sunset and foul sunrise
Yo ho ho and a tanker of scum

Four Somali men of 'em thin and dark
Yo ho ho and a tanker of scum
Sort of like Jack Sparrow but without the grin
Yo ho ho and a tanker of scum
Twas the media that swiped them with a murderous mark
Calling them al Queda and terrorists without respite
Worthy of bullets between the eyes they say
And there they lay condemned to this day, damn my eyes
Looking for the truth
All souls bound just contrariwise
Yo ho ho and a tanker of scum

Twenty two men of 'em good and true
Yo ho ho and a tanker of scum
Ev'ry man Phillip's could ha' sailed with Old School,
Yo ho ho and a tanker of scum
There was chest on chest of unknown freight
Under 18 armed guards the ship made haste
And the cargo riot of stuff untold,
And silently offloaded without fanfare
Under sightless glare with lips struck dumb
The sailors shared the same stories by the rule of thumb,
Yo ho ho and a tanker of scum

More was seen through the media's screen...
Yo ho ho and a tanker of scum
Ratings undoubt high this Easter scene
Yo ho ho and a tanker of scum
'Twas a famous story built on a bed of bunk
With CNN, MSNBC and Fox coloring the egg
And the truth lay cracked and dry in a red blot
Where they pirates or some coastguard coxs?
That dared the blade and the bullet
By God! They could not speak for the TV forbade
Yo ho ho and a tanker of scum

Four Somalis and Captian on a rescue boat
Yo ho ho and a tanker of scum
The media and the devil had them in their scopes
The mates were fixed by the sniper's sight
The brains shot out without a fight
And the Captain was rescued -- all screamed 'hooray!'
The media wrapped him tight in a wondrous display
With a Yo-Heave-Ho! and a fare-you-well
And a sudden plunge in the sullen swell
The truth lies below on the road to hell
Yo ho ho and a tanker of scum
