Next pandemic

Earth slice

  Since Y2k, there have been a number of public events that seemed to be orchestrated, pushed with a urgency that was self-serving and self-destructive. The first was the rush to war, and the pounding of the drum over weapons inspectors, weapons of mass destruction and uranium acquisition.

  The second rush to judgement was the initial bailouts, when the decision by Congress had to be made before the market rolled over again, with dire consequences about a financial system no one seemed to understand hanging like a sword of Damocles over our heads.

  The third has been the recent pandemic that has filled the media, with masks and deaths in Mexico, an entire country's business being put on hold, airlines cancelling flights, schools shut down and sterilized, etc, etc, etc.

  With the media filled with this cascade of events, I started listening for something a little more in depth. In the US, how many people were falling gravely ill? How many were recovering?

  Now, excuse me, but, one death of a 23 month old infant in Texas? And then, a second death of an individual 'with underlying health conditions'? Now naturally, any death is one more than there should be, but pandemic?? The bubonic plague took out a quarter to half of the population of Europe. Now that is what I would call a pandemic.

  What's going on here?



  Last week we attributed the pandemic to the Jupiter, Chiron, Neptune conjunction running in late Aquarius. Reviewing the column, one line read,

  'Yet Neptune suggests not all is as it seems.' Even then, something was beginning to smell a little fishy. As reported on MSNBC,

  "It is almost three years since we faced the hysteria of an avian flu epidemic, when governments bought billions of dollars of Tamiflu – the same anti-viral now being promoted to combat a supposed swine flu pandemic. The shelf life of Tamiflu also happens to be three years...

  "The World Health Organization has, at the time of writing, increased its threat level to five, which means governments can activate their pandemic plans – and start handing out Tamiflu drugs.

  "This is extremely convenient for governments that would have very soon have to dispose of billions of dollars of Tamiflu stock, which they bought to counter avian flu, or H5N1. The US government ordered 20 million doses, costing $2bn, in October, 2005, and around that time the UK government ordered 14.6 million doses. Tamiflu’s manufacturer, Roche, has confirmed that the shelf life of its anti-viral is three years."

  It would be sad to think that those in our government are making decisions, not based upon our health, but for underlying fiscal reasons, and yet increasingly this is what we find ourselves being faced with at the managerial levels. Yet this is precisely the 'pandemic' that has swept over our planet for more than two thousand years. We are under a cloud of deceit, which is getting ready to build to a crest.

  Neptune is the planet that controls the currents that sweep the masses. It can deal with illusion, confusion and smoke screens.

  The rising Sun will help burn off the fog.
