FLASH: Think you know the truth about the extent of the Mexican Flu? Guess again. "White House issues advisory after Obama Mexico trip"


If all these tourists and officials are coming back from Mexico with the flu, what do you think the true infection rate is amongst Mexicans?

Two words: Crowd Control.

The White House is issuing a health advisory outlining "protective measures" to anyone who traveled on President Barack Obama’s trip to Mexico, after a member of the U.S. delegation is suspected of contracting the swine flu strain on the trip.

The individual – an advance security staffer for Energy Secretary Steven Chu – fell ill with flu-like symptoms while there and appears to have spread the flu to three members of his family. All three have tested probable for swine flu, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs.

Many believe this was an assassination attempt on Obama. One of the first to die met with Obama the day before. The virus is available in government labs. Chanies's company makes the cure.

Biden let the truth out today, before he was forced to "clarify"

Crowd Control.


"I would not be, at this point, if they had another way of transportation, suggesting they ride the subway," he said. "From my perspective, this relates to mitigation. If you're out in the middle of the field and someone sneezes, that's one thing. If you're in a closed aircraft, a closed container, a closed car, a closed classroom, that's another thing."

Sadly, our government is so freeking corrupt we will not be told the truth because this will ruin the golden boys presiedency.

Just like we have fraud in U.S Treasuries by all the big players we have fraud in our health care.

We have a classic battle brewing between government and the people who now don't trust government.

Let's face it folks our worlds problems is a lack of confidence in our leaders.

Too many insiders now know the gig is up and it's all about robbing the American citizen before the the end of the American financial dominance.

They will lie cheat and steal to keep the truth about their faliures coming out.

Kellerman was the first to go. Lewis has to be kept on board to keep the secret and others will be either crushed from the public or receive the big payoff.

Watch those U.S. Treasury rates climb as the world begins to question why so much corruption.

Who really is in charge of our great country?

Well as usual you just have to follow the money. And no it isn't China because they are trying to get their money out with the least amount of damage to their economy.

Take a guess who is pulling the strings behind the curtain.

His name begins with "S"!

This is all bullshit.

The flu kills 100 per day as a baseline; the old, the immunocompromised (AIDS), and the very young.

This strain of flu is a normal flu, nothing more.

Here is what americans are preoccupied with:

"Some people are saying, wouldn't it be amazing that in the same year that the first African-American president took office in the U.S., we also elected the first gay and/or bisexual 'American Idol'," said Robert Thompson, professor of popular culture at Syracuse University in New York.

Mexi-Flu? Is that a new menu item at taco bell?

I'm waiting for Obama to give the pep talk about this new strain of flu:

"Let's be clear (cough, cough), your government is taking all measures to prevent (cough) the spread of this illness (extended coughing, clears throat). There is no need for unnecessary fear or panic..."

keith said...

Get the feeling Biden was told something in a confidential brief, and then let it slip?

I do.

oh, this is just too funny:

The Obama administration began internal discussions this week over where to put Guantanamo Bay detainees if they are not tried or sent to other nations, U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates said on Thursday.

Gates got a hostile reception from several lawmakers over sending any high-security Guantanamo detainees to the U.S. mainland and the defense chief said he anticipated strong opposition to such a move.

i hope they send them all to MA and CA.

Here at work today we had our 2009 1st quarter presentation from Management on how the company is doing, sales, stock price, etc.

After delivering the usual corporate blather the site manager gave us a little 'talk' about Swine Flu, and how to take precautions in order to prevent contracting and spreading it.

He mentioned wearing a face mask on a recent airline flight, and then went on to say that currently the local drug store chain has completely sold out of face masks and hand sanitizer.

Uh-oh! If this Swine Flu - whether it is a real pandemic or not - then there is the possibility that the public can suddenly panic.

The next thing to disappear off the store shelves may just be food that can be stored long term like canned food, pasta, rice and beans, not to mention other things like soap and bleach.

Just saying that there is still time for you to stock up, JUST IN CASE...

Keith,

That's one thing I like about Biden, the habit of shooting off his mouth. We need more people like in government, and given little or no power, so that they can take up the places and keep out the more scheming/dangerous type.

absolutely. the president and vp live by a different set of rules. I am sure that their families are in "lock down".

if they need to travel it is done in a private plane where everyone else on the plane has been tested.

I bet all the obama girls classmates are getting tested, teachers, etc. wouldn't want them bringing mexi-flu home to BO.

are the obama girls even going to school right now? or are the conveniently off doing "pr" things with mom?

For those of you suffering from S & A Cramer withdrawl, Here's another noted financial expert (formerly waitress at the Buttercup Cafe and living in her brothers van, now a media darling and buddy of Oprah) with her message:

Step 1: Live on half

Whether you're single or in a double-income household, Orman says you need to live on only half of what you're used to -- and put the rest in the bank. "If all of a sudden you find yourself without a job -- or your partner finds themselves without a job -- you are now going to have your income cut by 50 percent almost immediately," Orman says.

Unemployment also only makes up about 50 percent of your income, Orman says. Oprah.com: How to apply for unemployment

By living on half now, Orman says you'll know whether you can really afford to pay your bills if the worst happens. "When you are freaked out, that is not the time that you go through your expenses and go, 'Should I cut here?'" she says.

Don't Miss

Oprah.com: Get Suze Orman's new credit card advice
Oprah.com: How to prepare for a job loss
Orman says to try living on half for six months. "Chances are, it will take you six months to eight months to one year [to find a job]," Orman says. "See what would happen if recession really hit into your lives. Would you be able to make it?"

Step 5: Look at what you have, not what you had

How much longer should we expect times to be tough? "Things will get better, get worse. ... [In] the next two or three years, it will start to turn around," Orman says. "But I'm so sorry to say it will be, in my opinion, 2015 until every single person feels hopeful again."

Which is why Orman says it's so important to look at what you have and be grateful, instead of looking at what you've lost and feel angry. "If you continuously look in the rearview mirror while you're going forward, you're going to get in an accident. And the victim of that accident is going to be you," she says. "Don't compare. You'll feel stronger, you'll have more energy and you'll be able to turn this around."

Be grateful for the savings account you do have or the family that has helped you through. Although she knows it isn't easy, Orman urges everyone to see what they've been through as a kind of blessing. "When you are grateful -- when you can see what you have -- you unlock blessings to flow in your life."

WOW! ROCKET SCIENCE! MAYBE BETWEEN OPRAH & ORMAN THEY CAN COME UP WITH A VACCINE FOR THE DEADLY MESSYCAN FLU...

Pure Comedy Genius.

Bullcrap!

give us names and numbers of people infected.

I spoke to family and friends in 4 different states including Mexico city and they've all heard that the cousin of a friend heard that the one of the guys at school has a neighbor who's mom heard at work that someone in the local market knows some guy who may have swine flu but isn't sure.

if this was as bad as everyone makes it out to be,there would be tens of thousands death(not 12) and millions infected(not 1,500),but they are not,because it isn't

common sense lads,that's all you need.

by the way,thanks to whoever came out with the name "Mexi-Flu" name.me and my business partner are already printing the T-shirts

we're gonna make a killing!
no pun intended lol!,all the way to the bank!!!

Hey did anyone hear? Chrysler filed for bankruptcy today.

In other news of economic calamity this from the Federal Reserve:

"the Federal Reserve will purchase a total of up to $1.25 trillion of agency mortgage-backed securities and up to $200 billion of agency debt by the end of the year."

So, the way I see it, we all just bought $1.25 trillion in houses we didn't even know we were buying, and $200 billion in other crap.

The Fed = inflation = amazingly badly built, vinyl siding, ranch housing for everyone!

I think there's a bad case of sheeple flu going around here.

I think this flu thing is fishy....possibly a way to close the border between the US and Mexico w/out heavy diplomatic blowback? Occurred right after Obama's visit? Plus the unresolvable illegal/immigration issue...just saying....

Does the govt want to create a panic to take focus off of everything else? Diversion works for magicians.

To previous poster: Not a fan or Oprah nor Suze - but she does have a point about saving at that level....

baja said...

All wake up and do the math.
If it was a real threat the number would grow exponentially.
I live in Mexico and was very worried last Saturday since we did not know the extent of the epidemic. But really the numbers do not add up now and it is nothing more and nothing more dangerous than a normal flu.

There is no real problem, you're all just paranoid. I know, because Keith Olbermann tells me so. He did so last night. In fact, he cherry picked his own medical expert and interviewed that person, some Dr., who of course, backed up his idea.

WORST PERSON IN WORLD:
Keith Olbermann - 2 nights ago, on the very night he mocked USA people who are concerned about Mexicans traveling to the USA and spreading disease, parents from Mexico slipped thru Napalitano's 'active' border screening, with their toddler, infected with H1N1, to a Texass hospital for USA paid medical care.

The toddler died. But we're all just paranoid.

KEITH OLBERMANN!! W-O-R-S-T person in the WOOOORLD!!!!!!!!!!

We are being played....AGAIN.

Big Pharma is milking this contrived 'emergency' cash cow for all it's worth -- this is corporate welfare in the guise of a MSM-hyped health emergency.

The game is called: Emergency Mismanagement.

Meet some of the other 'players':

The MSM gets their kick-back in the form of big-budget advertising from the 'legalized' drug dealers.

The health bureaucracies go along with the scam to garner 'priority' funding from congress.

The 'research' programs at colleges and universities get 'dealt' fat funding grants.

The health care facilities get increased revenue from running phony 'diagnostic tests' and pushing ineffective drugs on a scared, unwitting public.

And congressional campaign coffers are filled with kickbacks from all the beneficiaries of their misappropriations.

What a racket.
