See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil."

Free Internet KJV Audio: http://www.audiotreasure.com/indexKJV.htm Big Sis Iris Scanners: The Prison Without Bars Paul Joseph Watson--September 13, 2010 The Department of Homeland Security is set to begin trials of iris scanning technology in October, but don‘t believe for a second that Big Sis‘ latest assault on the privacy right of Americans will be confined to airports – everything from entering sports events to making purchases will eventually be controlled by the technology if it is allowed to be implemented. ―The Homeland Security Department plans to test futuristic iris scan technology that stores digital images of people‘s eyes in a database and is considered a quicker alternative to fingerprints,‖ writes the USA Today‘s Thomas Frank. The iris scan is nothing less than the 21st century equivalent of how Jews and other undesirables were tattooed by the Nazis, aside from the fact that all Americans will be forced to submit to the eye scan. In Hitler‘s Germany, at least some members of the population were spared from having to identify themselves constantly at the behest of the authorities. As the USA Today article makes clear, iris records will be held in a database and associated with credit cards and other routine aspects of every day life. The agenda is to replace pin numbers and presentation of photo ID, forcing Americans to submit to high-tech enslavement merely to conduct their day to day activities. ―Financial companies hope the scans can stop identity fraud, said Jeff Carter of Global Rainmakers, a New York City firm developing the technology. ―Iris is going to completely reshape the fraud environment,‖ he said. In other words, whenever you buy something, take money from an ATM, cash a check, or conduct any financial transaction, you will be forced to submit to the iris scan. Cameras ―that take photos from 3 or 4 feet away, including one that works on people as they walk by,‖ will be installed at all major public buildings, sports stadiums, and transport hubs, completely demolishing for good the notion of innocent until proven guilty. As we have exhaustively documented, iris scans, along with mobile x-ray body scanners, are just two aspects of how everything that has turned America‘s airports into some of the most draconian, oppressive and abusive places in the world, is now being rolled out onto the streets. Homeland Security is already implementing technology to be enforced at ―security events‖ which purportedly reads ―malintent‖ on behalf of an individual who passes through a checkpoint. The video below explains how ―Future Attribute Screening Technology‖ (FAST) checkpoints will conduct ―physiological‖ and ―behavioral‖ tests in order to weed out suspected terrorists and criminals The clip shows individuals who attend ―security events‖ being led into trailers before they are interrogated as to whether they are terrorists while lie detector-style computer programs analyze their physiological responses. The subjects are asked about their whereabouts, and if they are attempting to smuggle bombs or recording devices into the ―expo,‖ proving that the technology is intended to be used at public events and not just airports. Individuals who do not satisfy the first lie detector-style test are then asked ―additional questions‖. Americans will be mandated to prove to the government that they are well-behaved slaves before they are allowed to do anything. http://www.infowars.com/big-sis-iris-scanners-the-prison-without-bars Court allows warrantless cell location tracking September 7, 2010--Declan McCullagh--The FBI and other police agencies don't need a search warrant to track the locations of Americans' cell phones, a federal appeals court ruled on Tuesday in a precedent-setting decision. In the first decision of its kind, a Philadelphia appeals court agreed with the Obama administration that no search warrant--signed by a judge based on a belief that there was probable cause to suspect criminal activity--was necessary for police to obtain logs showing where a cell phone user had traveled. http://news.cnet.com/8301-31921_3-20015743-281.html?tag=mncol;title#ixzz0zeaZRRkt Georgia Man Fined $5000 for Growing Vegetables September 14, 2010 by Alex--The Intel Hub--By TheAvalonRoundTable--A Georgia resident who has been an organic farmer for years is now facing $5000 dollars in fines for growing too many vegetables on his OWN land. Steve Miller, who has sold some of his produce at local farmers markets, as well as growing food for himself, is likely the victim of an Online Aerial Invasion of Private Property. This invasion of property is probably due to the fact that unless visited or inspected by an official, there would be no way for there to be an accurate or factual accounting of what was going on at Mr. Millers property. Recent reports of Local & State Officials and Bureaucrats using online mapping software have now become mainstream tools for assessing fines and generating money for cash strapped local & state budgets. Does it seem right that anywhere that Google Maps & Bing Maps can go is legal to use as a source of information. If a person was bathing in their pool, with every expectation of privacy, and someone peeked over a fence, wouldn‘t that constitute a criminal offense? January and February, when he received his first citations, Steve was able to get the property re-zoned allowing him to grow his garden – a right MOST AMERICANS believe he already had. In the recent past, Victory Gardens were encouraged. They were the pride of one‘s back yard, and of a Nation that was self-sufficient. Historically, Victory Gardens in World War II were encouraged to keep the supply of food at a maximum – and personal growing increased the industrial supply to the military. Are people going to let this FASCIST TAKEOVER to continue – even growing a garden in the privacy of our own personal property be taken away? If the answer is NO – then what are you prepared to do about it?

We are on the edge of WWIII, it's right around the corner. This was all planned ahead of time years ago. Read this letter that the highly regarded 33rd degree freemason Albert Pike wrote predicting all of these events: Albert Pike received a vision, which he described in a letter that he wrote to Mazzini, dated August 15, 1871. This letter graphically outlined plans for three world wars that were seen as necessary to bring about the One World Order, and we can marvel at how accurately it has predicted events that have already taken place. Look at the accuracy of the first two predictions written in 1871: "The First World War must be brought about in order to permit the Illuminati to overthrow the power of the Czars in Russia and of making that country a fortress of atheistic ...Communism. The divergences caused by the "agentur" (agents) of the Illuminati between the British and Germanic Empires will be used to foment this war. At the end of the war, Communism will be built and used in order to destroy the other governments and in order to weaken the religions." 2 "The Second World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences between the Fascists and the political Zionists. This war must be brought about so that Nazism is destroyed and that the political Zionism be strong enough to institute a sovereign state of Israel in Palestine. During the Second World War, International Communism must become strong enough in order to balance Christendom, which would be then restrained and held in check until the time when we would need it for the final social cataclysm." 3 "The Third World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences caused by the "agentur" of the "Illuminati" between the political Zionists and the leaders of Islamic World. The war must be conducted in such a way that Islam (the Moslem Arabic World) and political Zionism (the State of Israel) mutually destroy each other. Meanwhile the other nations, once more divided on this issue will be constrained to fight to the point of complete physical, moral, spiritual and economical exhaustion…We shall unleash the Nihilists and the atheists, and we shall provoke a formidable social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to the nations the effect of absolute atheism,…savagery and of the most bloody turmoil. Nihilist: a person who believes human existence has no objective meaning, purpose, or intrinsic value. Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries, will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned with Christianity, who…will from that moment be without compass or direction,…will receive the true light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view. This manifestation will result from the general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time." Since the terrorist attacks of Sept 11, 2001, world events, and in particular in the Middle East, show a growing unrest and instability between Modern Zionism and the Arabic World. This is completely in line with the call for a Third World War to be fought between the two, and their allies on both sides. This Third World War is still to come, and recent events show us that it is not far off. http://www.threeworldwars.com/albert-pike2.htm - Nate M --------------- Comment: Psa 2:1 ¶ Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?

The largest weapons deal ever by the U.S. would create more than 70,000 jobs for the stumbling U.S. economy, and it would strengthen ties with a key American ally, and possibly other Arab countries, while trying to shore up U.S. policy against Iran in the Persian Gulf. Israelis, however, are concerned that the weapons could be turned on them. The $60 billion package would include 84 new F-15 fighters, as well as another 70 existing ones that would be upgraded, and three types of helicopters—70 Apaches, 72 Black Hawks and 36 Little Birds. Furthermore, the administration wants to sell the Saudis another $30 billion in ships and hardware to upgrade the kingdom‘s naval forces. And there‘s talk of selling Saudi Arabia the Terminal High Altitude Defense (THAAD) missile defense system. Although Saudi Arabia‘s vast oil reserves have secured its good relations with every president, Democratic and Republican, since the days of Franklin Roosevelt, the Saudi royal family continues to run one of the most repressive and undemocratic dictatorships in the world. -Noel Brinkerhoff Saudi Arms Deal Advances (by Adam Entous, Wall Street Journal) U.S. Still Top Arms Supplier to South as Record Sale to Saudis Pends (by Jim Lobe, Inter Press Service) Conventional Arms Transfers to Developing Nations, 2002-2009 (by Richard F.

These rifles were used by the US military during the Korean War and left there after the war was over. With one stroke of his pen, he bi-passed the legislative process and banned nearly a million American-made rifles by executive fiat. The Obama administration‘s state department has said that the ―high magazine capacity‖ of these firearms makes them a dangerous safety concern and that they must be banned to protect us from terrorism. These outrageous claims are not only incorrect, but they are a thinly veiled attempt to distract from Obama‘s special interest payback to the radical anti-gun crowd. This desperate pandering must not be allowed to continue. That‘s why we‘ve prepared a petition and video against Obama‘s Historic Rifle Ban. See: http://nagr.org/M1garand.aspx?pid=1 Thank you, in advance, for taking action today! In Liberty, Dudley Brown Executive Director National Association for Gun Rights OBAMA ENDORSES GLOBAL TAXES ON EVE OF U.N. SUMMIT By Cliff Kincaid--September 17, 2010--NewsWithViews.com--In a classic case of misdirection, while the media are preoccupied with the fate of the Bush tax cuts, President Obama is preparing to attend a United Nations summit next week to endorse ―innovative finance mechanisms‖—global taxes—to drain even more wealth out of the U.S. economy. A draft ―outcome document‖ produced in advance of the September 20-22 U.N. Summit on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) commits the nations of the world to supporting ―innovative financing mechanisms‖ to supplement foreign aid spending. The term ―innovative financing mechanisms‖ is a U.N. euphemism for global taxes. The proposal, popular at the United Nations for decades and long-advocated by Fidel Castro, is called the Tobin Tax and named after Yale University economist James Tobin. Steven Solomon, a former staff reporter at Forbes, said in his book, The Confidence Game, that such a proposal ―might net some $13 trillion a year…‖ because it is based on taking a percentage of money from the trillions of dollars exchanged daily in global financial markets. He is referring to the fact that once such a tax is in place, it could be easily raised to bring in hundreds of billions of dollars or more a year to the U.N. and other global institutions. Such financial transactions through banks and other financial institutions are commonplace on behalf of Americans who have stock in mutual funds or companies that invest or operate overseas. Hence, such a global tax could affect the stocks, mutual funds, and pensions of ordinary Americans. The term ―small global taxes‖ brought a stunned reaction from Senator David Vitter, when he was told of what is being proposed in advance of the U.N. summit. Vitter introduced Senate resolution 461, ―Expressing the sense of the Senate that Congress should reject any proposal for the creation of a system of global taxation and regulation,‖ to put the Senate on record against any such measure. He has vowed to maintain pressure on the world body to avoid implementing any of these schemes and thinks that the Congress has to use whatever financial leverage it has to frustrate U.N. demands for more power and authority in world affairs. The Vitter resolution was sent to the liberal-controlled Senate Finance Committee, which declined to act on it. Over a 13-year period, from 2002, when the U.N.‘s Financing for Development conference was held, to the target year of 2015, when the U.S. is expected to meet the Millennium Development Goals, this amounts to $845 billion from the U.S. alone, according to Jeffrey Sachs of the U.N.‘s Millennium Project. “We have fully embraced the Millennium Development Goals,” Obama told the U.N. in 2009. http://www.aim.org/aim-column/obama-endorses-global-taxes-on-eve-of-u-n-summit/ Obama to Illegal Aliens: Don't forget who stands with you By DARLENE SUPERVILLE - Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama appealed to Hispanics on Wednesday to support Democrats in the November elections despite his failed promise to pass an immigration overhaul.Obama acknowledged the disappointment among Latinos over the immigration issue and pledged to keep pushing for a comprehensive overhaul of the nation's immigration laws to deal with border security and provide an eventual route to legal status for the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants in the United States. "You have every right to keep the heat on me and the Democrats, and I hope you do. That's how our political process works," Obama said the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute's awards dinner. "But don't forget who is standing with you, and who is standing against you. The president said as he blamed Republicans for standing in the way of progress. Don't ever believe that this election coming up doesn't matter." Obama also promised to help win passage of a bill, known as the DREAM Act, that would allow young illegal aliens who attend college or join the military to become legal U.S. residents. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said this week that he wants to attach the measure to an upcoming defense policy bill that the Senate could begin considering as soon as next week. "Now I know that many of you campaigned hard for me, and understandably you're frustrated that we have not been able to move this over the finish line yet. I am too," he said. "But let me be clear: I will not walk away from this fight. My commitment is to getting this done as soon as we can." Some in the audience shouted "when?" Obama urged Hispanics to remember who extended health care to millions of children, provided Pell Grants for Latino students and enacted credit card reform and created a new agency to protect consumers from predatory lending, including millions of immigrants who send money to relatives in their native countries. "Don't forget who your friends are," he said. "No se olviden" - Spanish for "Don't forget." He has scheduled a White House meeting to talk about the DREAM Act, as well as an immigration bill Sen. Menendez plans to introduce and about repealing regulations that give local police authority to make immigration arrests. http://www.thestate.com/2010/09/15/1467470/obama-to-latinos-dont-forget- who.html#ixzz0zoJNHHef The Left Pushes Anti-Military, Pro-Gay, Pro-Abortion Bill Next Week! The Senate has scheduled a vote on the National Defense Authorization Bill this Tuesday. This bill contains language that: Imposes open homosexuality on the U.S. military by overturning the 1993 law banning on homosexuality. This puts conservatives in a bind who want to support our national defense, but don‘t want to vote to overturn the ban. Requires military hospitals to perform abortions. Gives amnesty to children of illegal immigrants through the Dream Act. Amnesty and abortion have nothing to do with funding our national defense! They should be vigorously debated at another time. These are not relevant for a defense bill. The main goal is to appease LGBT activists, open borders, and abortion industry supporters as a way of bolstering election outcomes. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) has even joined forces with the weirdo pop singer Lady Gaga, to push for gays in the military. He recently tweeted Lady Gaga telling her that he views this pro-LGBT defense bill as an important vote before the mid-term election recess. This legislation is dangerous to military morale, readiness and unit cohesion. Here are some of the negative results that are being ignored: A zero-tolerance policy will force straight soldiers out of the service or push them into silence. For decades, openly serving gays, lesbians and bisexuals were justly considered a threat to unit cohesion, morale and military effectiveness. They still do. Careers will be destroyed and promotions denied to individuals who object to homosexual conduct. Chaplains will be forbidden to preach from the Bible on homosexual conduct. Our military readiness will be diminished if the 1993 law is abolished. Lt. General Thomas Bostick , who is the deputy chief of staff in charge of personnel matters for the Army, admitted that if the gay ban is overturned, anyone who opposes homosexuals will be considered the same as a racist or a bigot – and will be ejected from the military if they can‘t ―get with the program‖! Bostick and others will enforce a zero tolerance policy against any criticism of gay conduct!. Lt. General Thomas Bostick (who incidentally was just promoted to his current rank on 3-11-10) equates those who defend normalcy and oppose sexual deviance in the military with racists. The comments by Bostick are only the latest evidence that President Obama‘s pro-homosexual, Christian-discrimination plan for the military WILL DISCRIMINATE against normal and religious servicemembers who disagree with his immoral and impractical plan. Thus we face the specter that a type of ‖homo-supremacy‖ will grow in the ranks: ‖open and proud‖ homosexuals and bisexuals will be welcomed into the Armed Forces, while those who defend faith, tradition and common sense on this issue (including Bible-honoring chaplains?) will be shown the door. When Gen. Bostick spoke about ―Don‘t Ask, Don‘t Tell‖ before several hundred troops at the European Command headquarters in Stuttgart, Germany recently he is quoted saying: ―Unfortunately, we have a minority of service members who are still racists and bigoted and you will never be able to get rid of all of them,‖ Lt. Gen. Bostick said. ―But these people opposing this new policy will need to get with the program, and if they can‘t, they need to get out. No matter how much training and education of those in opposition, you‘re always going to have those that oppose this on moral and religious grounds just like you still have racists today.‖ The strong words take additional significance from Lt. Gen. Bostick‘s direct involvement with a Pentagon panel charged with shaping military policy on this issue. Lt. Gen. Bostick‘s twisted comparison — which echoes the standard anti-Christian rhetoric of homosexual activists — is itself an act of bigotry. Opposing people based on their (unchangeable) skin color is bigoted; defending a time-honored sexual moral code in the military‘s unique environment is not. Opposing the celebration of perversion is not ―hate‖ or prejudice but the right thing to do! The military‘s long-standing ban on homosexual conduct is rooted in the principles of the Uniform Code of Military Justice, which also criminalizes adulterous conduct among heterosexuals insofar as it undermines the good order and discipline of the armed forces. Lt. Gen. Bostick suggested he would employ the same strict disciplinary standards to provide ―education and training‖ that would ensure soldiers, sailors and airmen embrace the new LGBT agenda….. [Editorial continues at Washington Times HERE] Keep in mind that 1,167 retired General and Flag officers have signed a statement opposing lifting the ban on homosexuals openly serving in the military! Their views should count! Sen. McCain plans to lead a filibuster and only needs 41 votes to stop this assault on our military . The LGBT/abortion supporters, however, need 60 votes to overcome McCain‘s objection! Your Senators need to be encouraged to vote with Sen. McCain next week. The Senate could adjourn as early as October 1, so if we can block Reid‘s attack on our Armed Forces until then, we may have won for now! But… Time is short if we are to make a difference! You can help us right now by sending a letter of concern to your two U.S. Senators – asking them to vote against repeal of the 1993 gays in the military law and against funding abortion in military hospitals! And, please forward your letter to as many of your friends and associates as you can! Here is another free online opposition to this evil: Sen. Reid has announced he will offer the DREAM Act (S. 729) as an amendment to the Defense Authorization. But, Reid needs 60 votes to proceed to consideration of the bill. The most effective way to pressure Reid to abandon adding the DREAM Act is to support Senator John McCain‘s objection to Reid‘s motion to proceed. It will take 41 votes to maintain the McCain objection and prevent Harry Reid from pursuing his plan to insert amnesty for millions of non-English-speaking illegal aliens into the defense bill. TAKE ACTION! Call your Senators NOW and tell them to SUPPORT Sen. McCain‘s objection to proceed to debate of the bill by voting NO on cloture unless Sen. Reid abandons his plans to pursue the DREAM Act.

They contacted the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, reported Fox 8 and Heier said, ―We got a biologist that was supposed to come here. About an hour passed and he never showed up, so we called the biologist and he said my superior stopped me from coming.‖ Fox 8 added that Heier said that after more than 24 hours ―the catch can not be tested because all of the crabs have since died.‖ ―They died already,‖ said another dealer. Heier told Fox 8, ―It‘s like we can‘t get help from nobody.‖ ―Wildlife and Fisheries‖ said it will test the crabs if new samples are collected tomorrow. ―St. Bernard fishermen, though, are convinced the crabs are full of oil and they believe the test results will prove their case,‖ the report concludes.

Vaccines are considered by many scientists and medical professional as weapons of mass destruction. Mandatory flu vaccines are being promoted by the "organized demons that created this year's risk of a superflu" according to Dr. Len Horowitz. For four months, the PMIC has continued poisoning (gassing) Gulf region residents with an unprecedented amount of Corexit's chemical compound, 2-Butoxyethenol, poisonous to human blood, kidneys, liver and central nervous system. Eventually, Corexit also ruptures red blood cells causing internal bleeding. The PMIC is ensuring that millions of residents are poisoned, fulfilling Agenda 21 depopulation. Corexit spraying continues today, blown further inland by tropical storm and hurricane winds. One of the two men who sounded the alarm about the looming high death toll is now dead, Matt Simmons. Whistelblower Hugh Kaufner is the other individual who warned about millions of people anticipated to perish due to the genocidal acts against Americans in the Deep South and Florida. Now it is reported, "The Gulf of Mexico is a biological time bomb that is undoubtedly evolving into a chemically induced breeding ground for mutating viruses. All the aspects exist in the Gulf right now and have been established for over three months. Their ongoing manipulated evolution into a viral plague or viral epidemic is evident, yet has been ignored." (Edwards, The Gulf Blue Plague is Evolving - Part II:Corexit + Bacteria = Mutated Viruses, World Vision, August 29, 2010 Since the H1N1 "swine flu" vaccine campaign, now a proven fraudulent conspiracy involving a fake pandemic, numerous medical professionals, scientists and journalists have written about the looming threat of forced vaccinations. (See: Dupre, D., Operation H1N1: Vaccine Liberty or Death, 2009) On July 21st, 2004 President Bush signed the 5.6 billion dollar Project BioShield into law. Under Project Bioshield the government can impose mandatory vaccinations on Americans, while simultaneously declaring martial law based on any emergency, real or imagined: www.whitehouse.gov/news/releases/2003/02/20030203.html On June 10, 2009, Stephen Lendman wrote: US federal laws should concern all Americans and suggest what may be coming - mandatory vaccinations for hyped, non-existent threats, like H1N1 (Swine Flu). Vaccines and drugs like Tamiflu endanger human health but are hugely profitable to drug company manufacturers." (Lendman, S. Readying Americans for Dangerous, Mandatory Vaccines, Rense, June 6, 2009) Pres. Bush secretly signed as part of the 2006 Defense Appropriations Act (HR 2863), the Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness (PREP) Act letting HHS Secretary declare any disease an epidemic or national emergency requiring mandatory vaccinations. The underlying aims of mandatory vaccinations - depopulation and population control - was highlighted again this week in the article, Vaccinate the World: Gates, Rockefeller Seek Global Population Reduction. Daniel Taylor writes, "The global elite has launched a world-wide operation against an unaware population to reduce and control fertility. Vaccines and even staple food crops have been modified to achieve these goals." Dr. Johnson's Presentation: Avian Flu/Pandemics: What to Expect & How to Play All Prepare (1-16) In recent years, the specter of the Avian Bird Flu has been hanging over mankind like a sharp sword. 'Experts' have repeatedly stepped to a news microphone to warn that human deaths could reach into the hundreds of millions worldwide - a death carried by birds in their global migratory patterns. A TV show entitled "Fatal Contact" even aired, depicting so many fatalities that their bodies were carried away in dump trucks. When this show aired back in May of 2006, I was actually on a 14 city tour of America entitled: 'Avian Flu: Killer of Millions?'. This teaching is an updated version of that presentation. This teaching covers so much more than Avian Flu and can be used as an 'icebreaking' education tool for both saved and unsaved who may not understand these issues. I endeavored to present the big picture with this presentation & point people to our only hope for any calamity: Jesus Christ. Recently I have gotten several confirmations that the 'Avian Flu Pandemic' card is soon to be played, and in reality it is long overdue. Topics will include: Proof the Illuminati telegraphs their punches prior to cataclysmic events, Why Avian Flu is the perfect vehicle for world depopulation, What the globalist elite are planning for Americans, Why the Avian Flu could be a repeat of the Spanish Flu of 1918 that killed millions!, Vaccinations and injectable microchips regarding the Avian Flu, potential kill rates, food shortages, forced vaccinations, project bioshield, and quarantines. I will also extensively cover proactive steps you can take to protect your families and yourself. Invive Mild Silver Protein: The Ultimate Immune System Product For Colds, Flu's and Infections: http://www.dr-johnson.com Australia bans flu vaccine for children after convulsions, seizures NaturalNews Insider Alert ( www.NaturalNews.com ) After dozens of children showed up in Australian hospitals with convulsions, vomiting and seizures following seasonal flu vaccines, the Australian government took the unprecedented step of banning the flu vaccine for children there. The real kicker, though, is that children started having convulsions two weeks before the ban but Australian health authorities ignored them, insisting that the vaccine was safe and causing it to be injected in yet more babies. Two weeks later, with dozens more children experiencing convulsions (and who knows how many thousands actually being harmed in less obvious ways), Commonwealth chief health officer Professor Jim Bishop finally announced the vaccination ban. Remember: Health authorities in Australia, UK, the United States and everywhere else have relentlessly insisted that flu vaccines are perfectly safe and can't possibly harm anyone. In the U.S., the FDA has given its approval to the very same flu vaccine that's harming children in Australia, and the CDC has insisted that all children in the USA -- regardless of age -- should now be injected with this very same flu vaccine. So now we've got a vaccine that Australia has banned but the USA somehow says is safe enough to inject into a six-month-old infant. How many convulsing babies will it take in the U.S. before American parents realize the truth about flu vaccines?

As well as receiving a payout of $1.5 million, the family will receive $500,000 per year to pay for the child's care. But while CBS reports that 4800 other cases are awaiting settlement in the federal vaccine court, Hannah's case may be a one-time deal. She began showing signs of autism, with accompanying screaming fits, after she'd been vaccinated against nine diseases in July 2000, at the age of 18 months. Navy to test its ability to vaccinate masses in a pandemic By Kate Wiltrout--The Virginian-Pilot--September 15, 2010—NORFOLK--It may be part of an exercise, but have no doubt: The needles in this simulated pandemic flu scenario are real. And so are the deltoids of thousands of sailors to be immunized in coming days as part of a test of the Navy's capacity to "surge" huge quantities of vaccines to its work force. Did you know former President Clinton quietly signed Executive Order 13139 on September 30th, 1999? This order requires military personnel to receive experimental vaccines not approved by the FDA and denies the soldiers the right to refuse or to even to be provided with informed consent of what there are receiving. Every military exercise gets a name, typically by shortening key words and condensing the spaces between them. The first phase of PANFLUEX - short for pandemic flu exercise - begins today, when nurses and corpsmen from Portsmouth Naval Medical Center will fan out to local military medical clinics. Their goal is to vaccinate about 6,000 "mission essential personnel" within 48 hours. "Primarily, the first part of the exercise is getting health care workers vaccinated," said Rebecca Perron, a spokeswoman for the medical center. "If it were the real thing, we would get 60,000 doses and have 48 hours to administer them." Ultimately, some 60,000 active duty personnel working at shore commands will receive flu vaccines as part of PANFLUEX. That's a little less than half the doses the medical center plans on administering this year. The rest will go to military family members. In the exercise's three final phases, medical personnel won't wait for patients to come to them. Corpsmen and nurses will head to local bases and commands and set up miniature clinics. They will attempt to inoculate 20,000 people in a 24-hour period. http://hamptonroads.com/2010/09/navy-test-its-ability-vaccinate-masses-pandemic Vaccine Deaths And Injuries Skyrocket As Cover-Up Implodes Paul Joseph Watson-Monday, August 30, 2010--Cases of debilitating illnesses, soft-kill side- effects and even instant deaths as a result of vaccinations across the world are skyrocketing as the cover-up of deadly inoculations implodes and more people than ever become suspicious about what they are being injected with by health authorities who have proven they cannot be trusted. The implosion of the vaccine cover-up is sure to discourage more parents from vaccinating their children in the coming months, with the swine flu shot now being combined with the regular seasonal flu jab. A recent Rasmussen poll found that 52 per cent of Americans were concerned about the safety of vaccines as we approach the start of school and college terms, where many children and teenagers will be ―required‖ to take shots before they can attend. A global revolt against dangerous vaccines is brewing following a series of cases where children have been killed as a direct result of inoculations. A measles vaccination program in India was halted after four children died almost immediately after receiving the shot. ―Four children died within minutes of receiving a vaccine for measles…on Saturday,‖ reports MedGuru. Indian newspaper reports carried eyewitness accounts of what happened. ―The four children were reported to have fainted soon after they were vaccinated and witnesses reported seeing the children‘s eyes roll back as they began to have seizures,‖ reports Blitz. Furious villagers reacted to the tragedy by going on a rampage, attacking health workers and holding government doctors hostage. Health professionals and doctors with government ties were also blamed in Finland and Sweden after a H1N1 vaccination program was halted following a 300 per cent increase in cases of the neurological disorder narcolepsy amongst children and young people who had received the shot over the last six months. According to Kari Lankinen, head physician of the Finnish Medicines Agency, doctors were complicit in hiding the link between the swine flu shot and narcolepsy and did so to advance their careers. Meanwhile, concerned mothers whose daughters have been injured or killed by the Gardasil vaccine have put together a website that documents the truth about how the vaccine has killed and injured thousands of young girls since it was introduced in 2006. Thousands of teenagers have suffered adverse reactions and at least 71 have died from the vaccine since the HPV program was launched four years ago. The global vaccine cover-up took a massive blow after it was confirmed that the 2009 swine flu outbreak was, as we predicted from the start, a contrived scam centered around making vast profits for pharmaceutical companies while endangering the health of the public. As we reported earlier this year, Chair of the Council of Europe‘s Sub-committee on Health Wolfgang Wodarg‘s investigation into the 2009 swine flu outbreak found that the pandemic was a fake hoax manufactured by pharmaceutical companies in league with the WHO. Wodarg said that governments were ―threatened‖ by special interest groups within the pharmaceutical industry as well as the WHO to buy the vaccines and inject their populations without any reasonable scientific reason for doing so. Wodarg said there was ―no other explanation‖ for what happened than the fact that the WHO worked in cahoots with the pharmaceutical industry to manufacture the panic in order to generate vast profits & that the entire farce was a hoax. Professor Ulrich Keil, director of the World Health Organization‟s Collaborating Centre for Epidemiology, also slammed the swine flu epidemic as an overblown ―angst campaign‖, devised in conjunction with major drug companies to boost profits for vaccine manufacturers. As Natural News‟ Mike Adams reported, several members of the Emergency Committee expert panel that advised the World Health Organization (WHO) during the swine flu scare were receiving financial support from pharmaceutical manufacturers either during or prior to the epidemic. Both H1N1 and seasonal flu shots have been linked with a number of different side-effects across the globe, including Guillain-Barré Syndrome as well as dystonia, a paralyzing neurological disorder. The seasonal flu vaccine has also been linked with convulsions and seizures in under-5 year olds. Many batches of the swine flu vaccine included squalene and mercury amongst their ingredients, two substances that have been directly connected with the explosion of autism amongst children as well as other diseases. Individuals within government and the military were privileged to receive additive free shots that did not include these substances. German Chancellor Angela Merkel and government ministers, as well as German soldiers, were amongst those who received access to the so-called ―friendly‖ version of the vaccine. In order to head off legal claims for side-effects caused by the swine flu vaccination program, the U.S. government provided vaccine makers with blanket legal immunity before the shots began to be dispersed. Citing concerns over safety, Prime Minister Donald Tusk and Health Minister Ewa Kopacz, with the broad support of the public, ensured that Poland was the only country in the world to completely reject the H1N1 vaccine. ―We are making this decision only in the interest of the Polish patient and the taxpayer,‖ Tusk said. ―We will not take part because it‘s not honest and it‘s not safe for the patient.‖ In a 2008 trial for a bird flu vaccine, three Polish doctors and six nurses faced criminal charges after the vaccine killed 21 homeless people who were participating in the test. The Czech Republic rejected a swine flu vaccine produced by pharmaceutical manufacturer Baxter after the company was caught shipping vaccines contaminated with deadly live H5N1 avian flu virus to 18 countries by a lab at an Austrian branch of Baxter. Given the routinely stated goal on behalf of mega-rich foundations that fund vaccination programs around the world, such as the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the Rockefeller Foundation, to use vaccines as a way of sterilizing the planet‘s population as part of the global eugenics soft-kill assault on humanity, it‘s unsurprising that as more people become aware of this agenda, take-up rates of new as well as seasonal vaccines continue to decline. As Jurriaan Maessen recently documented in his Infowars exclusive, in its 1968 yearly report, the Rockefeller Foundation acknowledged funding the development of so-called ―anti- fertility vaccines‖ and their implementation on a mass-scale. This program was then launched by a group that was created under auspices of the World Health Organization, World Bank and UN Population Fund entitled ―Task Force on Vaccines for Fertility Regulation‖. In the 1990‘s, the WHO was mired in controversy after it distributed a ―tetanus vaccine‖ to poor girls and women in the third world that was contaminated with human chorionic gonadotrophin (hCG), a hormone that induces involuntary abortion. During a TED conference earlier this year, Bill Gates openly stated that vaccines would be used to lower the earth‘s population in the name of combating climate change. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is one of the major funders of vaccine research and production in the third world. Warning that the global population was heading towards 9 billion, Gates said: ―If we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services (abortion), we could lower that by perhaps 10 or 15 per cent.‖ How an improvement in health care and vaccines that supposedly save lives would lead to a lowering in global population is a totally contradictory statement, unless Gates was referring to vaccines that sterilize people, which is precisely the same method advocated in White House science advisor John P. Holdren‟s 1977 textbook Ecoscience, which calls for a dictatorial ―planetary regime‖ to enforce draconian measures of population reduction via all manner of oppressive techniques, including sterilization. Do influenza vaccines really work? It's a reasonable question. A rigorous look at the best scientific evidence, however, reveals that influenza vaccines are useless in 99% of the people who get vaccinated. And that's if you believe the vaccine industry's own studies. In reality, the real rate of effectiveness is likely much lower. Today I bring you a detailed analysis of the available scientific evidence which reaches some rather startling conclusions: 1) Influenza vaccines don't reduce hospitalizations and they don't reduce lost work days due to sickness. 2) Influenza vaccines don't stop influenza transmission. 3) The evidence in favor of influenza vaccines working at all is quite slim: 100 people must be vaccinated to reduce influenza symptoms in just one person. There's more (much more) to this fascinating story. Read the details here: http://www.naturalnews.com/029641_vaccines_junk_science.html Flu Shot May Be Mandatory For All Healthcare Workers All healthcare personnel should be required to get vaccinated against influenza, according to a new policy statement from the American Academy of Pediatrics. The authors, from the AAP's Committee on Infectious Diseases, said that influenza vaccination is needed to protect patients, and that healthcare personnel have an ethical and professional obligation to be immunized.

That's right, a free flu shot! This year I can be 'protected' against influenza A, B and H1N1, all in one injection, paid for by the architects of evil themselves, what a deal!

I can get this heavy metal poisoning shot directly into my bloodstream at any of 5 convenient locations! As well as a deluxe dose of various other unnatural substances of course. And all winter long I can be a good sheeple AND a walking billboard! That is, until my mind and body are completely rendered inoperable. It's shaping up to be a great flu season already!

The overhaul includes refinements to manufacturing aimed at shaving weeks off the time it takes to produce pandemic flu vaccine, and a series of steps aimed at more quickly spotting ‗promising‘ scientific discoveries and getting them to market. "We aren't generating enough new products," said Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, citing "leaks, chokepoints and dead ends" in the medical development pipeline. Money for the changes comes from funds initially allocated for the TOTALLY BOGUS H1N1 flu pandemic. Among other things, the effort would provide $822 million for upgrades to speed up production of pandemic flu vaccine. Another large block, $678 million, would be used to set up at least one private facility that would work under government contract with small companies to manufacture new products, develop new manufacturing processes and help produce vaccines during periods of peak demand.
