Lethal Virus from 1918 Genetically Reconstructed
US Army scientists create "Spanish Flu" virus in laboratory - medical benefit questionable


(Austin and Hamburg, 9 October 2003) - The 'Spanish Flu' influenza virus that killed 20-40 million people in 1918 is currently under reconstruction. Several genes of the extraordinarily lethal 1918 flu virus have been isolated and introduced into contemporary flu strains. These proved to be lethal for mice, while virus constructs with genes from a current flu virus types had hardly any effect. These experiments may easily be abused for military purposes, but provide little benefit from a medical or public health point of view.

The 1918 Spanish Flu was highly infectious and - in comparison to contemporary flu viruses - killed a very high percentage of those infected, including many younger people. The Spanish Flu alone caused the medium life expectancy in the US in 1918 to drop by 10 years. Hence, flu viruses are perceived today as a serious biological warfare threat. Just two weeks ago, a 15 million dollar research grant was awarded in the US to develop protective measures especially against a bioterrorist attack with flu viruses.

Despite the very dangerous nature of the 1918 virus, efforts to reconstruct it started in the mid 1990s, when Dr Jeffrey Taubenberger from the US Armed Forces Institute of Pathology in Washington DC succeeded in recovering and sequencing fragments of the viral RNA from preserved tissues of 1918 victims. In the current issue of the scientific journal Emerging Infectious Diseases new genetic details of the 1918 flu virus will be published.

But after (partially) unravelling the genetic sequence of the virus, the scientists went a step further and began bringing the Spanish flu back to life. Unnoticed by the public, they succeeded in creating a live virus containing two 1918 genes that proved to be very lethal in animal experiments. This experiment is only one genetic step away from taking the 1918 demon entirely out of the bottle.

A resuscitation of the Spanish flu is neither necessary nor warranted from a public health point of view. Allegedly, the recent experiments sought to test the efficacy of existing antiviral drugs on the 1918 construct. But there is little need for antiviral drugs against the 1918 strain if the 1918 strain had not been recreated in the first place "It simply does not make any scientific sense to create a new threat just to develop new countermeasures against it." says Jan van Aken, biologist with the Sunshine Project, "Genetic characterization of influenza strains has important biomedical applications. But it is not justifiable to recreate this particularly dangerous eradicated strain that could wreak havoc if released, deliberately or accidentally."

Construction of new maximum security (BSL-4) laboratories for biodefense research has been justified in part by citing the potential of the Spanish Flu as a biological weapon. Influenza usually requires a low level of containment; but when scientists begin recombining virulence-related genes, the danger dramatically increases. The University of Texas Medical Branch's BSL-4 plans influenza 'gene reassortment' experiments in maximum containment. "This kind of research is creating a vicious circle, and could prompt a race by biodefense scientists to genetic engineer unthinkable diseases", says Edward Hammond of the Sunshine Project, "What disease comes after influenza? Biodefense laboratories must not become self-fulfilling prophesy centers. The world does not need biodefense programs to create a 'genetically engineered disease gap'."

From an arms control perspective it appears to be particularly sensitive if a military research institution embarks on a project that aims at constructing more dangerous pathogens. "If Jeffery Taubenberger worked in a Chinese, Russian or Iranian laboratory, his work might well be seen as the 'smoking gun' of an offensive biowarfare program," says van Aken.

A Sunshine Project briefing paper on the 'Reconstruction of the Spanish influenza virus' provides further details and a comprehensive literature list.

If humans can't figure out that it's not in their best interest to create incredibly lethal communicable diseases I guess they don't stand much chance of lasting very long on the planet. Such is life...

We need to bring out Spanish Flu virus as much as we need the Anthrax vaccine. It's just making the Laboratories rich. Mandatory anthrax vaccination of the military was a gross violation of one's right to their own body. It is rape. It makes people sick. I dislike Bush intensely because of it.

an interested reader

The standard pop-sci book on the influenza pandemic of 1918 is Gina Kolata's Flu, which our helpful library has many copies of. What isn't clear from the posting above is that we don't really know if whatever made the 1918 strain so deadly will have any effect on us today. We may be largely immune, thanks to our grandparents and great grand parents having survived. Not that I like the idea that we're cranking out any new bioweapons, but it may well be that this one is a dud. On an unrelated note, The Sunshine Project needs to proofread more carefully:

"The Spanish Flu alone caused the medium life expectancy in the US in 1918 to drop by 10 years." Read 'median' for 'medium'....

do a little research and you will find that he made this comment in the past, plus if you are a Bible beliver you may recall something about 1/3 of mankind being killed off in the end times. I for one belive the sick military leaders and control freaks of this world will us Bio-weapons in the next great war (coming soon to a town or city near you). Good luck my friends, it's gonna be one HELL of a ride.

Dear Dr. Doyle,

My name is Eric Rainbolt, a long time New World Order researcher.

This is in response to your article on rense.com - 'Someone Knows' Avian Pandemic Is Coming

 http://www.rense.com/general63/dder.htm

Please see these first:

2)  http://radio.indymedia.org/news/2004/12/3061.php

(look for the 11/11/04 and 2/22/2005 dates on the Deception Election graphic - look at the bottom of the illuminati events calendar in the second link) These was posted in October 2004 and December 2004.

I couldn't agree more... well, perhaps I could... I have known for a long time.

Please commit to listening to this MP3 of this information as presented on the Jack Blood.com show. His show is excellent, he is more open minded than Alex, and this was one of his best in my opinion. It is worth listening to.

 link to www.ucimc.org

I hope you believe the evidence I have to present to you here - maybe you can help get the message of truth about it out. Many like Jeff Rense or Alex Jones haven't even though I have sent them information countless times for the past half a year and even before that. I guess they just didn't want to believe it themselves. I have predicted this exact scenario over three years ago - my essays and writings about the staged Spanish Flu (1918/2005) plague go back far in time and can be found with a google.com search. More profoundly I discovered this is actually coming true exactly according to the precise dated predictions I have made when I grew to understand the illuminati/masonic design of everything {including *history*} (using their coded, I call it satanic, numerology) all in light of bible prophecy. I wrote this in a book entitled Revelation 911 that goes back over 100 years in 'history' and shows this patterning throughout all 'history' - all major political events worldwide, and its use is more prominent during wartime periods. It is available as a free ebook on such sites as  http://www.cremationofcare.com. Bible prophecy became all the more clear to me and the scope of the evil and manipulation and perversion we are all now under.

Jack Blood, a GCN host read my prediction for the 2/22/2005 CDC announcement before it happened on his show and the prediction came exactly true - that is when the CDC announced the {mutated-not!} flu plague is coming around the corner. He had me on for an entire show a week later to explain the how and why I had successfully deduced the grand plan of all this and the precise prediction made to his audience. An MP3 of the show is linked below. He was a great show host for believing what I told him before it happened and allowing me to discuss this frankly and at length on his show. Alex Jones likes to perpetually ignore me for some reason (even though we worked on some projects together in a friendly manner in 2002 and 2003) and will never point or give credit to this incredible discovery of how we have been manipulated we have been over time even though I have dropped of two of my books to him over the past year several months ago - no response to anything. I don't call his show because he I think he would only trivialize this information and cut me off mid-sentence and just go to the next caller and I think that would be a disgrace - like he does to other callers who bring up Daniel of John's book of Revelation. I asked him to post my latest most revealing book as a free ebook, but no response. However, Jack Blood has been wise and kind enough. I support Alex for what he does otherwise though, but he is not going the full 9 yards.

Please visit Jack Blood's forum I have linked directly using this link:  http://www.linktoit.com . My two books, one on the Federal Reserve and the other on occultic illuminati/masonic numerology in staging world events can be found here:  http://www.911exposed.com. I am from Austin Texas. I was so concerned about this coming staged flu plague in 2002 that Alex Jones even called my house and spoke to me for 45 minutes about this topic way back then. That is truth. He doesn't get into this though, predicting things or even talking about bible prophecy on his show. He truly borders on falsehood thinking we can >defeat< the New World Order (That is technically impossible. ) and giving all his listeners false hope without leading them to restore their faith in the ultimate truth of Christ as the only savior during these times. This is all God The Father's design leading up to what is by definition known as Armageddon and the return of Jesus Christ to save the souls of the faithful, who have it in their minds and hearts, from the beast - those who have loved all truth >including His< unto their deaths. That is God's purpose for us clearly written into Revelation. I also used the dates of Revelation and Daniel given to use as clues in computing the dates for the coming plague announcement(s).

I'll copy some introductory info here. You will see that I was able to successfully predict (in advance) the 11/11/04 flu date, the 2/22/2005 flu date and I believe the abomination is fully going to be set up and released on March 24th, 2005 the 1290th day.

[Almost] nobody wants to believe in end of days prophecy during these times except true faithful believers, I myself believing so, along with the many end time ministries across the world/net. I was hoping that this series of predictions coming true would open the eyes of many to this hard fact. It is proof of the >big picture<.

From Jack's forum ( http://www.jackblood.com) Please see all the graphics and links and note the dates these graphical predictions were posted to the servers, one before 11/11/04 (The Deception Election Flyer) and one before 2/22/2005 (The Calendar of Illuminati staged events) :

Text posted to Jack's forum linked directly at  http://www.linktoit.com

I'd like to copy a letter I sent to Jeff Rense about this yesterday. Before you came to GCN Jack, I sent this information to him and his webmaster - but passed on this story in January. However, you are a better reporter in my view for picking it up and checking it out - especially for taking the chance and reading the prediction on air that afternoon! I was naturally a bit nervous being on air for the first time unveiling this aspect/technique of the monstrous illuminati deception on your show, but your cool personality and talented show hosting ability shined through and I was able to get comfortable quickly speaking of this. I take my hat off to you Jack. I personally think you are (although not the biggest; yet) but the >best< show host currently on GCN. I might be biased, but we are all entitled to our own opinion, right?

This was a letter I sent to Jeff Rense last evening hoping to re-enlighten him about this information.

Dear Jeff,

The information I wish to share with you has been astonishing to myself and others including the talented and bold new GCN show host Jack Blood. (  http://www.jackblood.com )

There has been a dramatic pattern through history straight through WWI and WWII, through JFK, through Apollo 11, through bills and legislation, through elections, through assassinations, political coups, 9-11-01, and the coming staged world h1n1-influenza release designed to be similar to the 1918 plague.

The pattern reveals a numerology used in timing 'historical' events throughout history. This coincides with how freemasonic architects have used numerology in other ways, such as in architecture as Frank Albo has recently exposed. Their numbers are 3,7,11,13 (and multiples of these), 19, 39, and 93 (yes, like flight 93; and 175 symbolizes and additive reduction to "13", the other two flight numbers, 11 and 77(7x11), are quite obvious in their use. )

We know from David Icke's research that the Illuminati are blood related to reptillian creatures existing in what is termed the lower vibrational 4th dimension (I think of it as hell or the abyss). What I am about to show you is that they move/prey-upon like lizards too. They act motionless and then strike and go back into a camoflauged state beind or within the controlled media for periods of time; as evidenced over time. This is how reptiles keep an eye on and stalk their prey in nature as Steve the crocidile hunter knows them to act.

I first started to discover the numerological patterning in the last half of last year.

In this article posted on October 22nd, 2004 at 11:14am the dates 11/11/2004 and 2/22/2005 are pointed out in advance. The prediction for the deadly flu plague announcement was drawn on this graphic (The Deception Election flyer - created before the November 2004 (s)election.)

See this ---->  http://www.cmaq.net/en/node.php?id=18589

Well, here is what happened on 11/11/04: The UN's WHO met to discuss the coming flu pandemic and Yasswer Arafat was apparently progressively poisoned so he could be declared dead at precisely 3:30 am ( the freemasonic "33" or 3 multiples of 11 are made quite obvious here. )

This is their calling card of the timed assassination. Then also on 2/22/2005 the CDC announced the global pandemic is coming, right in alignment with this. On the morning of 2/22/2005 Jack Blood boldly read the prediction I sent him days before on his show. Jack, being amazed that the prediction actually came precisely true later that day invited me on as a guest to discuss what just happened.

The MP3 archive of the show is posted here:

 link to www.ucimc.org ( Thank you Jack for your great reporting! )

Again, going back to the timeline, I created the following graphic posted on this indymedia site on Saturday, December 11th, 2004 at 12:05 AM. I pointed out the Arafat assassination and the prediction for the 2/22/2005 flu plague announcement - again, that came precisely true. I was able to make the predition using their numerology of staging the biggest of events based of 3's and 11's primarily. 3 months and 11 days after 11/11/2004 was 2/22/2005 (and the date itself has digits that add up to 13, where also a 6 (2/22), and a 111, and 11 can be gleaned from). In other words, this date has an obvious high "occulticity" to it. There was another clue that initally led me onto this and I'll discuss that in a few more paragraphs below.

Here is the timeline image posted on December 11th, 2004:

 http://radio.indymedia.org/news/2004/12/3061.php ( the prediction is written near the green square at the bottom )

{ look at this too how the CDC uses numerology in their own statements : January "2-22", 2005  http://www.cdc.gov/flu/professionals/vaccination/brfss0405season.htm }

This is a link to the CDC announcement on USA TODAY:  http://www.usatoday.com/news/health/2005-02-22-bird-flu_x.htm (on 2/22/2005 )

( graphic displaying the occult timing in staging the biggest events of world history. ) In other words, Jeff, there is now a clear reason why JFK was assassinated on a "22nd" on the "33rd" parallel in the "11th" month. Also, his assassination was timed to occur exactly "13" months or 1 year and 1 month after 10/22/1962, the date he delivered the big speech during the "13" days of October Cuban Missile Crisis. 13 is the illuminati witches favorite number, followed by 11 that represents their unveiling of their antiChrist (Daniel c7v8). So 13 was more popular during that era for them, but 11 has superceded it during this time of the rise and reign of the antiChrist.

This was all documented and written up in the freely distributable ebook I initally named "Revelation 9:11" after the fitting Revelation quote. The print version available on  http://www.911exposed.com is called "Armageddon 9:11" because that is where all this is clearly leading (at least from my perpective that is and may be shared).

 http://www.ucimc.org/usermedia/application/12/1_Revelation911-NewWorldOrder.pdf ( ebook available for download posted on Feb 20th, 2005 )

Here is an video intro to the book:

 link to www.ucimc.org (video)

Here is a press release with an intro to some more large events. You will discover that 9-11-01 was the 29th (2+9=11) anniversary of when the world was introduced to terrorism during the 1972 Munich games where "11" Israeli athletes were sacrificed, the 60th anniverary of the Pentagon groundbreaking, the 11th anniversary of the Bush I "Toward a New World Speech", and the 30th anniverary of when they put Nikita Krushchev asleep after "7" years of house arrest. Another example is that STS 10'7', Columbia, was sacrificed with one astronaut from each of the '7' continents, exactly 11 years to the day of a speech Bush I gave in front of the UN on 2/1/1992 where he stated Americans will soon pledge their allegience to the principles in the UN charter. That was an obvious sacrifice too. Cheney was even in Dallas on the 33rd parallel hunting in a field that morning so he could see the smoke trail as it formed over his head.

Everytime the press reports how many were killed in an event, it is 3,7,11, 13, 19 and numbers like "47", like the recently blast you have reported on your website today: "Bomb Kills 47, Wounds 100 At Mosul Funeral". Like Building 7 that had 47 stories (the UN building in NY by the way has 39 stories) - the two digits add up (reduce to) to "11".

There are literally hundreds more examples (cumulative evidence) contained in the book.

David Icke even made mention of it on a newsletter in January, but apparently dropped it quick because the book contains many references to the prophecies of Daniel (Old Testament end-time prophet) and Revelation (New Testament World Government and final judgement prophecies). I wrote David and told him this is where it is at. People don't need to go as far as where he has. His knowledge runs deeper than it needs to go for personal salvation. He needs to retract a bit I tend to believe to not go overboard. People don't need a Phd in the illuminati and reptillian bloodlines to be protected and/or saved. I believe along with many others all over that one only need to hold in their heart one name, Jesus, and believe He, the Son of the One True God, was crucified for our sins, died, and rose on the 3rd day, and ascended 42 days later in front of the final 11 apostles. This is the King of the Universe's, Our Creator's, Our Father's, Holy policy. (John 3:16). I believe this is the simple truth anyone needs to know for redemption of sin and salvation in God's New Kingdom to come, His Will being then done.

The illuminati might not have been aware of it or maybe they are that their satanic use of numerology in scheduling the events of the past centrury and today has rolled right into the numerological clues we are given in Revelation and Daniel.

I am specically talking about the numbers given in these 2 books. Those numbers are 1260 days, 1290 days, and 1335 days.

See, the 1260th day past 9-11-01 (and 9+1+1="11") is/was >>2/22/2005<<. Let me put three exclamation marks here for emphasis
(!!!)

The 1290th day, 30 days later, is March 24th, 2005. This is the day known as "Holy Thursday" or the day of rememberance of Jesus's last supper. This is when an "abomination that causes desolation" is going to be fully set up according to Daniel 12. I can only presume this is a deadly contagious plague, a plague that is also referenced in Revelation, perhaps with hint of the antiChrist too (will the illuminati try to put Schwartzenegger in to replace the ailing pope?) - . ( I simply do not know all the details to come forth. I truly can't even say that everything is going to be completed soon. I simply do not know the actual day nor the hour Christ will return in full sight of the world. ) Protection from the coming plague can be found in Psalm 91 however.

The 1335th day past 9-11-2001 is May 8th, 2005. This is a day known as "Ascencion Sunday" - they day of rememberance when Jesus Christ ascended into heaven. Daniel stated the blessed are the ones who are alive to view that day. This is also the 60th anniverary of the end of WW II, Mother's Day, and mysteriously is also a day of the full moon. Again, I believe these days are to be added on top of 9-11-01. I may be wrong, but look out how this rather perfectly lines up! I am convinced!

Now, I ask you to read "Revelation 9:11" to see how this occult freemasonic numerology has been emdedded throughout our history and and also that the One true God's words in the Old Testament and Jesus'life, word, and prophecy in the New Testment are both clearly true and just. It seems most people are always demanding proof. I submit to them, that from this reasearch and my view of it, it stands as proof of all of the above.

Thank you.

Yours truly,

Note: I know not everyone shares the somewhat common belief that putting all this information together in the ebook has personally convinced me of - but I hope that by reading the book you get something from it. To facts became clear to me - that this world is being controlled by the evil one (I John 5:19), the dark angel of the abyss if you will, and they people have been abused and suppressed by the forces that have given their power in that direction (up the pyramid to the lizard eye atop of it). I hope this book will help show people that they indeed have been deceived and where the source of it has been coming from: the illuminati roundtable of our dark overlords, or as Revelation 9:11 reads:

" And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon. " ( KJV )

Thank you and peace to all. David Icke is right is saying that Love in the answer and the great source of the one great consciousness of life in the universe. It is certanily fascinating but we all don't need to know the other half of reality about the lizard creatures from the 4th dimension to get there though. Yes, I hope many of us (if not all of us) don't forget to remember who gave us the greatest Love of all. Likewise, His name is well known for it.

Again, thanks to Jack for what you do, your wonderful show, and this ultra cool forum.

In other words, this is happening and God is letting these evil people do heir work in setting up all this coming disaster. It says in Revelation God put it in their hearts to accomplish His purpose. (Revelation 17:17)

The Kingdom of God is soon at hand passed these days of horror and tribulation. It's time for people to recognize this and repent for their sins and call up Jesus for redemption of their sins. (period) The wise will do so, the wicked will continue to be wicked. Tribulation is the great testing period. Psalm 91 alludes to being saved from the coming plague through faith. Daniel 12 says surviving what is to come is a blessing, Revelation says getting beheaded (Rev 20:4) by the NWO mechanism is a blessing. This is a contradiction of high magnitude. On that topic, I am deeply confused and hold no strong opinion either way.
