1918 Flu Hemorrhagic Symptoms Similar To Ebola
Some of the H5N1 "bird flu" strains seen recently in 10 carry mutations seen in the 1918 virus.
WHY WERE SCIENTISTS LOOKING FOR, AND WHY DID THEY REVIVE AN ANCIENT 30,000 YEAR-OLD VIRUS?
Later this month, the World Health Organization will decide whether or not to get rid of two live virus repositories in the United States and Russia
<<In its 2012 report, this committee also concluded that live virus strains were no longer needed to research diagnostics or develop vaccines and that the continuation of DNA sequencing was unnecessary. >>
The resurrection of the 1918 influenza virus was a team effort engaging the resources of the C.D.C. in Atlanta, an obscure military pathology lab outside Washington, D.C., an esteemed group of influenza experts at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York and one elderly Swede. Though the story has been told before, it is impossible not to begin with the Swede. In 1950, Johan Hultin, then a 25-year-old graduate student at the University of Iowa, was searching for a Ph.D. topic when he heard a visiting virologist say that the only way to solve the mystery of the 1918 pandemic would be to recover the virus from a victim who had been buried in permafrost. Hultin suddenly had a topic.
After some planning, he found what seemed like an ideal site in the remote settlement of Brevig Mission on Seward Peninsula in Alaska. In a mere five days in November 1918, 72 of the 80 residents of Brevig died and were later buried in a mass grave. Hultin arrived there alone, obtained permission to dig up the grave and after two days of hacking through frozen ground came across the preserved body of a little girl in a blue dress, red ribbons in her hair. He and some colleagues eventually found four more bodies and cut out samples of their pocked and peppered lungs, keeping them frozen with dry ice exuded from fire extinguishers.
Jeffery Taubenberger, the man most responsible for resurrecting the 1918 flu virus, chairman of the department of molecular pathology of the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology in Rockville, Md., & his department, was, in the early 90's, in the process of developing an expertise in retrieving tiny whispers of genetic code from putrefied flesh. Taubenberger decided in 1995 to look for the 1918 virus in samples of preserved lung in the A.F.I.P.'s tissue repository, which contains about three million pathological samples dating back to the Civil War. His techniques were far more advanced than anything Hultin had at his disposal, and his goal was more modest. Taubenberger knew that flu particles are too unstable to remain intact in a frozen corpse, and he wanted only to find a remnant of the virus's genetic code...
"We had to tweak the P.C.R. method to its ultimate level of detection," Taubenberger said. "It wasn't simple. It was painful. Everything we did here was painful."
How sweet, the mind of a killer, yes? How lovely the intentions of those who daily create and recreate death....
The Spanish flu killed at least 50 million people around the world in slightly more than a year -- late winter 1918 into the spring of 1919. Researchers have never figured out what made the virus so lethal...
Ohhhh, what, what could have made it...Let's imagine.....another mad scientist, perhaps one with a giant ego & suppressed id, was tapped for a "miracle" to fight the war, to win the war...
Perhaps something akin to those smallpox blankets the American Indian Tribes were given, maybe more, much more deadly & virulent? Germ warfare goes back to America's beginnings, just needed a new push...
WW1, neither side had been able to deliver a decisive blow for almost 4 years. before the Flu hit & allied losses outnumbered Germany's. SOMETHING had to give.
In autumn of 1918, the 'Great War' in Europe was winding down and peace seemed on the horizon. The Americans had joined in the fight, bringing the fresh American soldiers into very close quarters in the trenches of Europe with both allies and the enemy. Then, in the fourth dreadful year of the war, as the American Expeditionary Forces (AEF) assumed fighting strength and prepared their first great offensive against the Germans, the flu struck. in those trenches, & in pockets across the globe, something erupted that seemed as benign as the common cold.
The flu was most deadly for people ages 20 to 40. This pattern of morbidity was unusual for influenza which is usually a killer of the elderly and young children.
Age 20-40? Common ages for SOLDIERS, yes?
An estimated 675,000 Americans died of influenza during the pandemic, 10 times as many as in the world war. Of the U.S. soldiers who died in Europe, half of them fell to the influenza virus and not to the enemy.
The influenza virus had a profound virulence, with a mortality rate at 2.5% compared to the previous influenza epidemics, which were less than 0.1%. The death rate for 15 to 34-year-olds of influenza and pneumonia were 20 times higher!
One physician recalled that the influenza patients "died struggling to clear their airways of a blood-tinged froth that sometimes gushed from their nose and mouth," NOT LIKE NORMAL FLU, MORE LIKE AN EBOLA VIRUS, MAYBE?
So, The Great War, with its mass movements of armies and ships landing in so many ports was a PERFECT DELIVERY SYSTEM FOR A PANDEMIC.
WERE U.S. SOLDIERS ALREADY INFECTED, SICK WHEN THEY WENT TO EUROPE?
WHY, YES, YES, ESPECIALLY FROM A FORT IN KANSAS, FROM ONE NEAR BOSTON, AND PENNSYLVANIA, TO NAME A FEW!
Influenza sailed with American troops across the Atlantic and THEN exploded in late August and September in Europe.
A first wave of influenza appeared early in the spring of 1918 in Kansas and in military camps throughout the US. There was virtually no response or acknowledgment to the epidemics in March and April in the military camps. It was unfortunate that no steps were taken to prepare for the usual recrudescence of the virulent influenza strain in the winter. The lack of action was later criticized when the epidemic could not be ignored in the winter of 1918
WHY WAS THIS IGNORED?
WHY WERE SICK SOLDIERS SHIPPED OUT?
The war brought the virus back into the US for the second wave of the epidemic. It first arrived in Boston in September of 1918 through the port busy with war shipments of machinery and supplies.
As the epidemic struck their camps, hospitals, ships, ports, or divisions, many medical officers documented what they saw, as if trying to define that which they could not control. They ran tests and did autopsies, recorded their laboratory and clinical findings, compared morbidity and mortality rates across time and with other units.
Those who were lucky enough to avoid infection had to deal with the public health ordinances to restrain the spread of the disease. The public health departments distributed gauze masks to be worn in public. Stores could not hold sales, funerals were limited to 15 minutes. Some towns required a signed certificate to enter and railroads would not accept passengers without them.
Quarantine might have been better...
People allowed for strict measures and loss of freedom
They didn't question, would have accepted even tighter security...but...that didn't come...
During one of the most productive periods in American literature, there are only a few mentions of the flu.
In the Summer of 1918, after the first wave of flu hit in rhe spring, the U.S. was enjoying warm weather, and general prosperity
We were "not really" AT war, yet.
The flu hadn't killed millions...YET.
No one knows exactly where the 1918 Flu began, but evidence points to Haskell County, in Kansas' .
Some 300 miles from Haskell County was Camp Funston, part of the huge Fort Riley military complex
Camp Funston had a higher population than usual due to wartime training.
Several there, crowded together indoors with insufficient clothes and blankets, jammed closely around the few working stoves, were quickly stricken by an unusually virulent form of flu in January to mid-March of 1918.
Within days, several thousand were stricken, but only 38 of them died – not enough to quarantine the camp in wartime
THE CAMP WAS NOT QUARANTINED?
Civilians contracted this NEW horrific flu.
A local, a Dr. Miner, was so concerned with its intensity, however, that he reported it to the U.S. Public Health Service, who published his cautionary note, but otherwise ignored it
Troop movements soon spread the flu to many other army camps.
24 of the 36 largest camps reported an outbreak of flu in the Spring of 1918, along with 30 of the country’s 50 largest cities.
Soldiers from Ft. Riley were loaded onto troop ships by the thousands
In the last six months of World War I, over 1.5 million soldiers crossed the ocean to go to war in Europe
It was the largest such movement of people in the history of the world
Members of the 57th Pioneer Infantry were already ill with the flu
As they marched from Camp Merritt, New Jersey, to board the troop ship Leviathan, they began to drop out of ranks
Trucks and ambulances scooped up those too ill to continue, but the rest marched on.
WHY LOAD INFECTED, EVEN DYING TROOPS?
Conditions aboard the troop ship Leviathan, were so bad that a detail of soldiers actually mutinied, rather than go below decks WHERE MEN WERE DYING HORRIBLE DEATHS.
Night time was the worst, as one official report describes, with
“scenes which cannot be visualized by anyone who has not actually seen them…The decks became wet and slippery with blood, groans and cries of the terrified added to the confusion of applicants clamoring for treatment, and altogether a true inferno reigned supreme”
Many of the sick soldiers fled the death ship as soon as their orders allowed, spreading the disease to fresh troops, TO CIVILIANS.
This scene was repeated over and over again throughout England and Europe
Aboard the troop carrier Olympic, for example, 1,947 troops were infected, and over 140 died
No one was prepared to deal with the thousands of sick and dying men, confined in the living hell that the troop ships became
The flu soon spread to French and British troops
Allied soldiers took it home to civilians when they went on leave.
The virus spread rapidly through soldiers, POW’s, and civilians, spreading to Germany, Russia, China, India, Southeast Asia, and down into Spain…becoming a true global pandemic
It was dubbed the “Spanish Flu”, but only because the press started to take notice as it happened to be hitting Spain.
Something happened aboard those troopships, or perhaps in the foul and crowded trenches, that turned the flu into a savage killer…
The fact that survivors of the first wave of the 1918 Flu had ONLY SOME immunity to later waves, tells us that the second wave was not an entirely new strain, but an altered form of the virus that caused the first wave.
ALTERED, it was altered...
That means that between 1,000 to 10,000 viruses from each infected cell can not only still infect other cells, but may now be even more lethal than before, and better able to hide from the immune system'
Only by reconstructing the virus can we determine its origin and test this hybridization hypothesis about its virulence.
Symptoms SOON included severe earaches and headaches.
Victims often bled heavily from the nose, mouth, eyes and ears.
Lung damage was so severe that doctors compared it to the damage done by mustard gas.
Pockets of gas bubbled up under the skin from ruptured lungs.
The immune system reactions were so strong that they often created a disastrous feedback loop called a cytokine storm, the immune system version of a nuclear attack.
Victims were stained so darkly in some cases it was hard to tell black men from white
The extreme cyanosis fueled rumors among the soldiers that the flu was really the Black Death
Autopsies revealed extensive damage to the lungs, heart, and brain.
Although flu is not normally associated with neurological problems, victims were often left with permanent nerve damage and even psychosis.
A STAR IS BORN!
TROUBLING QUESTIONS,VERY DISTURBING:
Camp Grant, near Rockford, Illinois, like other camps, was jammed with over 40,000 troops
Col. Charles Hagadorn, commander of Camp Grant & ALL OTHER COMMANDERS, decided to ignore LONG-STANDING army regulations against overcrowding.
Across America, camp medical staff objected, but were overruled.
The first soldier reported sick on Sept. 21st, from an infantry training group that included officers from Camp Devens
Within a week he was joined by 4,102 other soldiers
1,810 soldiers reported sick in a single day!
The SAME day that the first soldier died of flu at Camp Grant, Hagadorn ordered a crowded troop train to leave Camp Grant for Camp Hancock, near Augusta, Georgia.
He ignored demands for a quarantine of the camp
WHY? MISSION ACCOMPLISHED?
When the death toll at Camp Hancock passed 450 men, Col. Hagadorn instructed his staff to clear the building, shut himself in his office, and shot himself'
In the wake of the 1889-1890 flu pandemic, Dr. Richard Pfeiffer had isolated a new species of bacterium which he called Bacterium influenzae, also known as Pfeiffer’s bacillus.
Now known as Hemophilus influenzae, the bacterium was thought by many, including the Public Health Service, to be the causative agent
The bacterium could kill its hosts in the lab, but the symptoms it caused were not quite identical to those of influenza.
Despite improved culture techniques, however, the bacterium was not always present in flu victims, and was usually found together with several other pathogens.
WHAT OTHER PATHOGENS?
The best global estimate is 50-100 million dead, out of 1.8 billion (from Nobel laureate and flu expert Dr. Macfarlane Burnet)

<<Glenn Thomas, a leading consultant in Geneva, an expert in AIDS and, above all, Ebola Virus, was on board the Boeing 777 Malaysia Airlines cut down on the border between Ukraine and Russia.
Glenn Thomas was also the coordinator of the media and was involved in the investigations that were bringing to light the issue of trial operations of Ebola virus in the laboratory of biological weapons at the hospital in Kenema.
Now that this workshop was closed by order of the Government of Sierra Leone, more details emerge about the interests that hidden behind its management.
Bill and Melinda Gates have connections with biological weapons labs located in Kenema, the epicenter of the epidemic of Ebola developed from the hospital where they were going clinical trials in humans for the development of its vaccine, and now, following the opening of an informal survey, it appears the name of George Soros, through its Foundation, is funding the laboratory of biological weapons.
Glenn Thomas was aware of evidence showing that the lab had manipulated (results of those) diagnosed positive for Ebola [on behalf of Tulane University] in order to justify a coercive medical treatment to the population and to submit it to an experimental vaccine that, in fact, sent their Ebola.
Glenn Thomas had refused to go along with the cover up, unlike some who work at our Institute of Health and are now are well aware that Glenn Thomas was murdered.
The official channels of media have never reported a single news about the presence of the laboratory of biological weapons in Kenema, much less the disposal of closing or the order to stop the testing of Ebola by Tulane University.
So, what other channels are left as this information becomes public domain, and are spread through social networks, even though the WHO and health care institutions refrain from releasing information and act?>>
Dr. Paul Offit is a pediatrician who co-invented a rotavirus vaccine (trade name Rotateq), who once stated in interview that a child can be administered 100,000 vaccines safely at once (later revised to 10,000). A professor of Pediatrics at the University of Pennsylvania, he is the darling of the mainstream media and a widely cited self-appointed ‘vaccine safety expert,’ despite the glaring conflict of interest implied by such a designation.
Unfortunately for Dr. Offit (not so affectionately named Dr. Profit), a 2010 study published in Journal of Virology revealed that his multi-million dollar grossing patent on the Rotateq vaccine contains a live simian retrovirus (with a 96% match of certainty) that has likely infected millions of children over the past few years with a virus that causes great harm. Retrovirus infections are permanent, and can carry on indefinitely into future generations. In other words, once they are inserted into the human genome they can not be removed.

For context, consider the deleterious role of a previous monkey virus – simian virus 40 (SV40) – in the polio vaccination campaigns. This ‘hidden’ cancer-causing virus infected millions of unsuspecting polio vaccine recipients during the initial polio eradication campaigns. Not only is it cancer-causing, but it is passed down trans-generationally. Merck’s senior vaccine scientist confessed in interview as to the damage these SV-40 contaminated vaccines did to millions of unsuspecting victims, including causing cancer. These vaccines did untold damage to the infected generations THAT FOLLOWED, leaving a legacy of untold pain and suffering in millions of offspring whose parents unwittingly succumbed to one of the most dangerous biological experiments in human history.
HIV for instance, is a retrovirus whose phylogenetic lineage also comes from a monkey virus: simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV).
Offit’s Rotateq vaccine should be pulled from the market, considering it contains live viruses that are capable of infecting the bodies of those within which they are injected. For information on the exploding epidemic caused by hidden viruses in vaccines, read Judy Mikovits’ incredible new book “Plague: One Scientist’s Intrepid Search for the Truth About Human Retroviruses and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Autism and Other Diseases.”
"I believe that this was research that should not have been performed," says Richard Ebright, a Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigator at Rutgers.
