100 Years Ago: ‘Spanish Flu’ Epidemic Kills More Than World War 1

1589

[Editor’s note: It is the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of ‘Spanish Flu’ in 1918 that killed over 100 million people globally, more than had died in WWI. Much of the public knowledge of this event is plain wrong; for starters, there was no Spanish Flu in that it wasn’t any kind of influenza, this is clear from the contemporary reports of the symptoms which make it clear that this was a nasty hemorrhagic disease.

The exact origins of the ‘Spanish Flu’ are somewhat clearer – it began in the huge Army camps in the US Mid-West; furthermore, it’s origins are rather clear too – it was the result of the administration of multiple vaccines in a short space of time, turning the bodies of the young recruits into incubators for the deadly pathogen that swept the globe.

You won’t find acknowledgement of these truths in the mainstream literature, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t a large body of evidence available to prove it was not a simple influenza outbreak.

I have published below a compilation of some of the more readily accessible material on the subject. Ian]

“Funny how, in the discussion of the 1918 epidemic, no mention of a vaccine is ever made. Today, historians say that the epidemic happened because there was no vaccine.” – Hilary Butler

Vaccine not virus responsible for Spanish flu

RYLE DWYER writes on the horror of the 1918-20 pandemic which the propaganda says was caused by Spanish flu (Irish Examiner, May 1).

How did they know it was the virus of Spanish flu that killed millions of civilians and soldiers?

This disaster occurred when viruses were unknown to medical science.

It took a British science team to identify the first virus in man in 1933.

As regards the origin of the outbreak, he relates that a senior US army officer suggested that the Germans might have been responsible for the bug as part of their war effort, by spreading it in theatres or where large numbers of people assembled.

[the_ad id="497740"]

Did they also spread it among their own people, killing 400,000 as reported?

Ryle would have us believe that all those American soldiers who died from non-combatant causes may have died from Spanish flu.

But US Army records show that seven men dropped dead after being vaccinated.

A report from US Secretary of War Henry L Stimson not only verified these deaths but also stated that there had been 63 deaths and 28,585 cases of hepatitis as a direct result of yellow fever vaccination during only six months of the war.

That was only one of the 14 to 25 shots given to recruits.

Army records also reveal that after vaccination became compulsory in the US Army in 1911, not only did typhoid increase rapidly but all other vaccinal diseases increased at an alarming rate.

After America entered the war in 1917, the death rate from typhoid vaccination rose to the highest point in the history of the US Army.

The deaths occurred after the shots were given in sanitary American hospitals and well-supervised army camps in France, where sanitation had been practised for years.

The report of the Surgeon-General of the US Army shows that during 1917 there were admitted into the army hospitals 19,608 men suffering from anti-typhoid inoculation and vaccinia.

This takes no account of those whose vaccine diseases were attributed to other causes.

The army doctors knew all these cases of disease and death were due to vaccination and were honest enough to admit it in their medical reports.

When army doctors tried to suppress the symptoms of typhoid with a stronger vaccine, it caused a worse form of typhoid paratyphoid.

But when they concocted an even stronger vaccine to suppress that one, they created an even worse disease Spanish flu.

After the war, this was one of the vaccines used to protect a panic-stricken world from the soldiers returning from WWI battlefronts infected with dangerous diseases.

The rest is history.

Spanish Flu?

In the late Summer 1998 issue, Greg Bunker, in his article Lust for Life, comments on the disease epidemics that follow world wars and refers to the Spanish Flu disaster after WWI. It wasn’t Spanish Flu at all that killed up to 50 million people, men, women and children world-wide. That was the medical cover-up. The real killer was typhoid vaccine.

In the United States it was a common expression during the 1914-18 War that more soldiers were killed by vaccine shots than by shots by enemy guns”. This truth was borne out by Dr. H.M.Shelton, author of Vaccines and Serum Evils in which he revealed. “It was during WWI, when vaccination was enforced to the fullest extent, that the death rate from typhoid rose to its highest point in history…This death rate could not be blamed on bad sanitation or bad food as was the case in the tropics. The deaths occurred when typhoid vaccine shots were given in sanitary American hospitals and well-supervised army camps in France, where sanitation had been practised for years”.

According to General Goodwin, the British army had 7,423 cases of typhoid with 266 deaths. In the French army, there-were 113,165 cases of typhoid with12,380 deaths up to October1916. Compulsory vaccination was in force in both countries.

After the war was over, world-wide typhoid vaccination was carried out on populations in order “to protect people from disease-ridden soldiers returning from the battlefields” as warned by suborned newspapers of the day (Shades of the HIV!). The result was the 50 million deaths now deviously attributed to the Spanish Flu by the medical fraternity.

Patrick J. Carroll, Waterford, Ireland (Continuum magazine letter)

In 1911 immunisation of US army troops with typhoid vaccine became compulsory. In World War 1, with a fighting force of approximately two million there were 1,529 cases of typhoid, with 169 deaths. In the Spanish-American War of 1898 with an unvaccinated fighting force of 108,000 there were 20,738 cases of typhoid, and 1,580 deaths.— Bierring WL.

Recreating the 1918-19 “Spanish” Flu epidemic hysteria
by Ingri Cassel

From the October 2005 Idaho Observer:

The article below was written in October, 2005, as government, industry and the media were “hyping” us for the inevitable “avian flu” pandemic that never actually materialized. The Spanish flu has shown us that it was possible for an influenza variant to spread across the globe in 1918 so it would be foolish to think it cannot happen again. The lesson here is that a perfect storm of experimental vaccines, the stress of war, toxic exposures and incorrect medical interventions for the sick—not a flu “bug” itself—is what caused so many people to die in 1918-1919. Conversely, for those who seek to realize tremendous political advantage or corporate profits from pandemic influenza, experimental vaccines, war, toxic exposures and incorrect medical intervention is a recipe for “success.”

As the bird flu hype intensifies, suddenly people who had never heard of it before remember the Spanish flu pandemic of 1918 as if it just happened. It’s interesting how the modern remembrance of the 1918 outbreak, being leaked into our minds from the CDC through the mainstream media, is dramatically exaggerated from doctored historical accounts.

For instance, an Associated Press story from 1997 cited a study done by the Armed Forces Institute under the leadership of Dr. Jeffery K. Taubenberger. Taubenberger, et al., analyzed specimens from some of the 43,000 servicemen that died as a result of the “Spanish” flu and had been preserved in formaldehyde and wax for future studies. It was theorized that “the virus … is a mutation that evolved in American pigs and was spread around the globe by U.S. troops mobilized for World War I.”

Regarding flu epidemiology, pigs may have wings

In February, 2004, the BBC reported that British scientists determined that the strain of flu virus responsible for the 1918-19 “Spanish” flu pandemic was an avian virus that had mutated. This information was determined by exhuming bodies from villages within 700 miles of the north pole from people who had died during the 1918-19 flu pandemic.

Is the reason for this confusion due to the fact that the existence of viruses was known but not isolated and categorized until after 1933, the year the electron microscope was invented? Some articles from the late 90s even theorize that the virus originated in birds that infected pigs that then infected humans. Hmmm…

1918 death toll still rising

Another problem is the evolving numbers of people who were infected with the “Spanish” flu and the numbers of people who actually died. An “AP Statistics Lab” claims that 25 million people died worldwide from the 1918 flu pandemic with half a million dying in the U.S. The CDC claimed in 1999 (Preparing for the Next Influenza Pandemic) that 20 million people died worldwide from the 1918 flu pandemic but now claims, in 2005, that the death toll was 50 million worldwide.

Another article justifies these discrepancies by saying that anywhere from 20 million to 100 million people died worldwide during the 1918-19 flu pandemic.

Aside from this “official” confusion, it is clear that the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Bush administration are using recreated 1918 flu pandemic history to sound the alarm justifying the $4 billion tagged onto a defense spending bill passed by the Senate September 24, 2005.

Senator Tom Harkin (D-Iowa), with the backing of Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nevada), wants the government to spend nearly $3.1 billion to stockpile enough doses of an anti-viral pharma drugs (not vitamin C or oregano oil) for half the U.S. population. If half the current U.S. population (not counting the illegal immigrants) were to “benefit” from this boondoggle, it amounts to $21 for each anti-viral dose administered at taxpayer expense.

Learning from the past

Historians puzzle over the virulence of the “Spanish” flu versus deadly medical treatments used nearly 90 years ago. According to medical researcher Jim West, chloroform was used as a preservative in several orthodox cough syrups in 1918 and would convert to highly poisonous phosgene when oxidized, causing liver failure and various cancers.

Patrick J. Carroll wrote a piece in the August 5, 2003 edition of The Irish Examiner recounting relatively unknown vaccine history. He claimed that a report from then U.S. Secretary of War Henry L Stimson verified 63 deaths and 28,585 cases of hepatitis as a direct result of the WWI yellow fever vaccination program of only six months duration. Yellow Fever vaccination was only one of the 14 to 25 shots given to army recruits. Quoting from the article that can be accessed at www.vaclib.org/news/vaccinenotflu.htm:

“Army records also reveal that after vaccination became compulsory in the U.S. Army in 1911, not only did typhoid increase rapidly but all other vaccinal diseases increased at an alarming rate. After America entered the war in 1917, the death rate from typhoid vaccination rose to the highest point in the history of the U.S. Army. The deaths occurred after the shots were given in sanitary American hospitals and well-supervised army camps in France, where sanitation had been practiced for years.

“The report of the Surgeon-General of the U.S. Army shows that during 1917 there were admitted into the army hospitals 19,608 men suffering from anti-typhoid inoculation and vaccinia. This takes no account of those whose vaccine diseases were attributed to other causes.

“The army doctors knew all these cases of disease and death were due to vaccination and were honest enough to admit it in their medical reports. When army doctors tried to suppress the symptoms of typhoid with a stronger vaccine, it caused a worse form of typhoid: Paratyphoid. But when they concocted an even stronger vaccine to suppress that one, they created an even worse disease: Spanish flu.”

As several other sources confirm, it was this newly-concocted typhoid vaccine, as well as several other vaccines, that were mass disseminated to allegedly protect a “panic-stricken” world from the disease-infected soldiers returning from WWI battlefields that triggered the 1918 flu pandemic.

Following is an excerpt from Eleanor McBean’s eyewitness account as memorialized in Chapter Two of her book, “Vaccination Condemned”:

All the doctors and people who were living at the time of the 1918 Spanish Influenza epidemic say it was the most terrible disease the world has ever had. Strong men, hale and hearty one day would be dead the next.

The disease had the characteristics of the black death added to typhoid, diphtheria, pneumonia, smallpox, paralysis and all the diseases the people had been vaccinated with immediately following World War I. Practically the entire population had been injected “seeded” with a dozen or more diseases – or toxic serums. When all those doctor-made diseases started breaking out all at once it was tragic. That pandemic dragged on for two years, kept alive with the addition of more poison drugs administered by the doctors who tried to suppress the symptoms. As far as I could find out, the flu hit only the vaccinated. Those who had refused the shots escaped the flu. My family had refused all the vaccinations so we remained well all the time. We knew from the health teachings of Graham, Trail, Tilden and others, that people cannot contaminate the body with poisons without causing disease.

When the flu was at its peak, all the stores were closed as well as the schools, businesses—even the hospital, as the doctors and nurses had been vaccinated too and were down with the flu. No one was on the streets. It was like a ghost town. We [who didn’t take any vaccines] seemed to be the only family which didn’t get the flu; so my parents went from house to house doing what they could to look after the sick, as it was impossible to get a doctor then. If it were possible for germs, bacteria, virus, or bacilli to cause disease, they had plenty of opportunity to attack my parents when they were spending many hours a day in the sick rooms. But they didn’t get the flu and they didn’t bring any germs home to attack us children and cause anything. None of our family had the flu—not even a sniffle—and it was in the winter with deep snow on the ground.

It has been said that the 1918 flu epidemic killed 20,000,000 people throughout the world. But, actually, the doctors killed them with their crude and deadly treatments and drugs. This is a harsh accusation but it is nevertheless true, judging by the success of the drugless doctors in comparison with that of the medical doctors.

While the medical men and medical hospitals were losing 33% of their flu cases, the non-medical hospitals such as BATTLE CREEK, KELLOGG and MACFADDEN’S HEALTH-RESTORIUM were getting almost 100% healings with their water cure, baths, enemas, etc., fasting and certain other simple healing methods, followed by carefully worked-out diets of natural foods. One health doctor didn’t lose a patient in eight years…

If the medical doctors had been as advanced as the drugless doctors, there would not have been those 20 million deaths from the medical flu treatment.

There was seven times more disease among the vaccinated soldiers than among the unvaccinated civilians, and the diseases were those they had been vaccinated against. One soldier who had returned from overseas in 1912 told me that the army hospitals were filled with cases of infantile paralysis and he wondered why grown men should have an infant disease. Now, we know that paralysis is a common after-effect of vaccine poisoning. Those at home didn’t get the paralysis until after the world-wide vaccination campaign in 1918.

Homeopathy also gained quite a reputation during the 1918 flu pandemic. Raymond Seidel, HMD (homeopathic medical doctor), decided to be a homeopathic doctor during the 1918 flu epidemic when he was a 10-year-old delivery boy for a local homeopath. He said, “I saw that the people who were taking aspirin were dying, about half those who were drinking a lot were dying, and those that received homeopathic remedies were living.”

In Julian Winston’s article, Influenza-1918: Homeopathy to the Rescue (The New England Journal of Homeopathy, Vol. 7, No. 1, 1998), he noted that most of the deaths were caused by a virulent pneumonia that was especially devastating to those who depressed their system with analgesics, especially aspirin. The following citations from his article prove this point:

Three hundred and fifty cases and lost one, a neglected pneumonia that came to me after she had taken one hundred grains of aspirin in twenty-four hours. ~Cora Smith King, MD, Washington, DC

I had a package handed to me containing 1,000 aspirin tablets, which was 994 too many. I think I gave about a half dozen. I could find no place for it. My remedies were few. I almost invariably gave Gelsemium and Bryonia. I hardly ever lost a case if I got there first, unless the patient had been sent to a drug store and bought aspirin, in which event I was likely to have a case of pneumonia on my hands. ~J. P. Huff, MD, Olive Branch, Kentucky

One physician in a Pittsburgh hospital asked a nurse if she knew anything better than what he was doing, because he was losing many cases. “Yes, Doctor, stop aspirin and go down to a homeopathic pharmacy, and get homeopathic remedies.” The Doctor replied: “But that is homeopathy.” “I know it, but the homeopathic doctors for whom I have nursed have not lost a single case.” ~W. F. Edmundson, MD, Pittsburgh

There is one drug which directly or indirectly was the cause of the loss of more lives than was influenza itself. You all know that drug. It claims to be salicylic acid. Aspirin’s history has been printed. Today you don’t know what the sedative action of salicylic acid is. It did harm in two ways. It’s indirect action came through the fact that aspirin was taken until prostration resulted and the patient developed pneumonia. ~Frank L. Newton, MD, Somerville, Massachusetts

Aspirin and the other coal tar products are condemned as causing great numbers of unnecessary deaths. The omnipresent aspirin is the most pernicious drug of all. It beguiles by its quick action of relief of pain, a relief which is but meretricious. In several cases aspirin weakened the heart, depressed the vital forces, increased the mortality in mild cases and made convalescence slower. In all cases it masks the symptoms and renders immeasurably more difficult the selection of the curative remedy. Apparently aspirin bears no curative relation to any disease and it ought to be prohibited. ~Guy Beckly Stearns, MD, New York

By doing a bit of research into books and periodicals from the 1918 flu pandemic era, it is clear that allopathic “cures” were deadlier than the disease itself. Many homeopaths, autologists and other “drugless” doctors understood that the blood was the life force of the body and its purity was a barometer of health as well as an indicator of disease susceptibility. They also witnessed that the poisoning of the blood via yellow fever, typhoid and smallpox vaccinations was the prerequisite condition for contracting the “Spanish” flu. But even then, the flu itself was not a death sentence. The deaths occurred among those who stifled their body’s attempts to heal itself by taking allopathic potions such as aspirin and other inappropriate treatments.

[Note Cholera, Plague and Typhoid symptoms, 3 vaccines in use at the time.]

There is evidence that the Spanish Flu did have hemorrhagic symptoms.
Vickie Menear, MD and homeopath, was doing some research on Flu for her class at Hahnemann Homeopathic College, Albany, California, when she ran into a great deal of literature that supports this possibility. I called her and she said that if you had questions, she’d be happy too answer them.

Again, Email me and I’ll give you her phone number.

In the meantime, let me quote some of her source material. If you are interested in following up this new “lead” on the Spanish Flu epidemic, this is a good place to start. Here are the references:

1. THE PLAGUE OF THE SPANISH LADY: The Influenza Pandemic of 1918-1919 by Richard Collier, Atheneum Publishing, New York, 1974

QUOTE:

Page 7:
“It began, undramatically, after a two-day incubation period, with a cough. Next there was pain–behind the eyes, in the ears, in the lumbar region. Soon a drowsy numbness invaded the body, and fervor set in; often the temperature soared to 104 degrees F. The pulse was thready and unstable; the victim’s tongue was thickly coated…every mortal fiber ached indescribably–the throat, the head, the naso-pharynx..”

Page 35:
“But which disease? All over the world, doctors were noting symptoms so at variance with the spring epidemic –and with any known form of influenza–that it might have been an unknown sickness…that each time a man so much as stirred on his pillow, serous fluid poured from his mouth and nostrils…a burning pain above the diaphragm…the frontal headache that recalled Typhoid fever…painfully congested conjunctivae…coated tongues with bright red tips…another maverick symptoms: what doctors term ‘silent lungs’, an absence of breath so total he was convinced his stethoscope had given out.”

Page 37:
“…case after case of leucopenia–a kind of leukaemia in reverse, where the white corpuscles of the blood are strangely reduced in numbers…lost her sight within six days…gangrene of the sexual organs…afflicted by diarrhoea so intense he endured twenty movements a day….On one factor, at least, all doctors were agreed: only in Cholera did the collapse come so suddenly that most victims could fix the precise moment when they fell…a man staggering home at a run, handkerchief clapped to a bleeding nose–but most often this killer-virus struck like a lightning-bolt.”

Page 69:
“One moment she could see her face, mirrored opaquely in a bowl of water that her mother held (she was having Epistaxis, nosebleed while in the throes of the Spanish Flu). Next instant it had vanished, blotted from view by the blood pouring from her mouth and nose….Dr. Hennewig arrived. His verdict…”I have seen many such cases — without the haemorrhage she would not have recovered.”

Page 69:
“Later, Germany’s Public Health Administration was to report that in many areas Epistaxis affected up to HALF of all influenza victims–often as much as a pint of blood at a time.”

Page 69:
“Major Charles Mix, of the Army Medical Corps, saw a greater significance. Among doughboys at Camp Mills, New York, Mix noted interference with the passage of blood from the heart’s right ventricle to the lungs caused enough damming back of venous blood ‘to make possible nasal haemorrhage on the slightest occasion’. Many were even then cyanotic, and some, despite this haemorrhage, developed pneumonia…”

Page 220-221:
“….why should the sickness affect so many organs of the body normally untouched?…most often the disease resembled encephalitis, with the patient lapsing into a coma…a dilation of the heart but even of fatty degeneration…a cough so intense that it ruptured the muscles of a soldier’s rectum…retention of urine…puffy faces and swollen ankles of acute nephritis…the lungs were the organs most vitally affected…a patient’s face so contorted in death that even close friends couldn’t recognize him…and autopsy surgeons were encountering what one doctor termed ‘a pathological nightmare’; lungs up to six times their normal weight, looking ‘like melted red currant jelly.'”

2. EPIDEMIC AND PEACE, 1918 by Alfred W. Crosby, Jr., Greenwood Press, Westport, CT, London, England

Page 4:
“The Surgeon General’s office dispatched Colonel Welch to Devens (Army base)…included in that group Colonel Victor C. Vaughan, ex-president of the American Medical Association; Rufus Cole of the Rockefeller Institute; and Simeon Walbach of the Harvard Medical School….(p.7)…Welch and his colleagues…glanced in at the wards with their lines of cots and prostrated soldiers, whose linens were often stained with bloody sputum and the sudden nosebleeds that were symptoms of the Spanish Influenza…”

Page 7:
“In the open chest of a cadaver Welch saw the blue, swollen lungs of a Spanish Influenza…Cause of death? That at least was clear: what in a healthy man are the lightest parts of his body, the lungs, were in this cadaver two sacks filled with a thin, bloody, frothy fluid…..The lungs of those who died quickly, sometimes only 48 hours after the first ache and cough, were such as he had never seen before…Their most conspicuous feature was the enormous quantity of thin, bloody fluid. It oozed out of their lungs sectioned for examination, and in the large air passages leading to the throat it mixed with air in a bloody froth. As rigor mortis set in, the fluid often poured from the nose and stained the body wrappings.”

Page 8:
“If there was anyone at Devens (the Army base) who could be depended upon as a pillar of strength, it was this safe of Johns Hopkins. But when he saw the wet lungs of influenza pneumonia in the fall of 1918, the pillar trembled. “This must be some new kind of infection…or plague.”

Dr. Menear has a list of other books and articles supporting the hemorrhagic symptoms of the Spanish Flu. Should you want the list published here, on OUTBREAK, I’ll be happy to call her and get it sent to you. She also has information on Crotalus Horridus being utilized as a remedy during the pandemic.
I can only note that the symptoms of the 1918 “influenza” and the Ebola of 1995, have marked similarities .
My percentages of homeopathic remedies used versus traditional medicine (drugs) during 1918 influenza come from an article that appeared in Homeopathy Today, January, 1990. It was the following and I’ll quote:

“Dean W.A. Pearson of Philadelphia (Hahnemann College) collected 26,795 cases of (1918) influenza treated by homeopathic physicians with a mortality rate of 1.05 percent while the average old school (traditional medicine/drugs) mortality was 30 percent.”

I’d like to credit Julian Winston, New Zealand, one of our foremost homeopathic archives experts, and [email protected], in which this article appeared.
This article was originally published by the Journal of the American Institute for Homeopathy, May, 1921 and I’d like to share the entire article and you can draw your own conclusions. This article was a culling of information after the Spanish Flu epidemic had occurred. In it, you will find mentioned other remedies, other than Crotalus Horridus, that were used to save lives–Gelsemium, Eupatorium Perfoliatum, and Bryonia. Unfortunately, I wasn’t given the space at this website to share this information with you before this.

FLU PART TWO (gesundheit)

Concerning the possible germ warfare origins of the 1918 flu epidemic that killed an estimated 20 million people,

Dhencke says:

<< A very close friend, highly placed at CDC until he developed
<< AIDS, confirms that THERE ARE NO KNOWN SAMPLES
<< of the virus from the 18/19 pandemic and that they never
<< could have been “analyzed” by ANYONE much less an
<< “Armed Forces Institute of Pathology” (by the way, please
<< document this “agency’s” role vis a vis CDC/NIH in analysis).

Referring to the “Armed Forces Institute of Pathology” IS an example of citing a verifiable source. I appreciate the challenge, though, because it will provide an example of how you cannot necessarily trust sources “highly placed at the CDC” (not that THIS is yet a verifiable source).

It also helps me see part of the problem, why some newsgroup folks become so highly opinionated while ignorant- they do not know how, or do not bother, to avail themselves of the wealth of information available to them on internet. Within 30 seconds of searching under Yahoo or Alta Vista, you could be making a phone call to the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology, and asking them directly whether or not they exist (202) 782-2100 ( http://www.afip.mil ).

Doing a little homework this way, before challenging, could save much embarrassment. More than that, it is a phenomenal tool for learning and investigation.

The Armed Forces Institute of Pathology (AFIP) is a tri-service agency of the Department of Defense with a threefold mission of consultation, education, and research. Dr. Jeffery K. Taubenberger led the team in the study cited.

The information for the post was from Associated Press, also appearing in the “Science” journal in March ’97. You can see references to the article in:

Augusta Chronicle: http://augustachronicle.com/stories/032197/fea_flu.html

Daily Iowan: http://www.uiowa.edu/~dlyiowan…/v128/il64/stories/A0602N.html

In all fairness, I can see where some of the confusion stems for the fellow at CDC. I also read an MD who claimed in Jan ’97 that no virus samples existed. Apparently, though, there were samples that were not widely known, because by March ’97, the AFIP released the study. Perhaps it means that DOD kept some samples, secretly (just a guess).

When 20 million people die from a new “mystery disease”, it would be almost incomprehensible NOT to keep some samples, even in 1918.

I have found other bewildering contradictions in the literature, all from very boring and respectable sources, not “conspiracy” stuff.

Some source said that the epidemic began in Spain, others said China, others said America.

I saw one MD who said that 5 million people were killed, worldwide. Most sources seemed to say 20 million. Some sources said up to 40 or 50 million, dead from flu.

How do you “lose” 20 or 30 million people? I understand that in war, people die like flies all around, and there isn’t time to do an autopsy on them all. On the other hand, the governments have to understand what they are dealing with, and 20-30 million deaths is a hell of a margin of error.

It is similar to the grossly differing death totals that I noticed in different sources for the Mai Lai massacre, different by a couple hundred percent, yet very specific
numbers listed.

I once knew a woman who handled top-secret info regarding Cambodia, during Vietnam. Figures from her reports sometimes appeared in the press, with numbers and dollar amounts altered at will. She never knew who altered it.

The confusion probably stems from how governments give to the press whatever manufactured information suits their purposes, especially in times of war.

The Allied governments, the press, the Vatican knew about the Holocaust, yet didn’t talk much about it during the war. We can manage not to notice an extra 20 million people as easily as we can manage not to notice 6 million.

I am still studying the 1918 epidemic, and make no conclusions cast in concrete- we can never know for sure.

I am aware how new and sometimes virulent strains of flu can arise, naturally.

The problem is, imagine presenting a PhD virologist with two Dengue fever victims, one natural, and one from biowar, and ask the virologist which is which. He cannot possibly know, no matter how much he studies the two. For all intents and purposes, the net result is the same.

You cannot judge, simply because the virus is familiar, or because the virus is only slightly mutated from something familiar, or because the virus is completely unlike anything seen before. Any of these circumstances could be natural, or could be biowar.

Biowar provides inherent “plausible deniability”, the holy grail of covert action, the greatest of temptations to indulge in the darkest human instincts, without accountability.

I searched to see if the Germans were also hit by the virus, and they were. The 1918 epidemic was truly global.

This also does not mean that it was not biowar. During the WWII Manhattan Project, scientists did not know that a nuclear chain reaction would not continue forever, and destroy the entire planet. They went ahead, and tested, anyway.

The flu epidemic could have been biowar that backfired, a desperate hope that the enemy would be hit harder.

I was surprised to find that this epidemic may well have influenced the course of the entire war. I had not realized that President Wilson himself almost died of flu, as did a high-ranking British politician.

I read one article that echoed my own impression- how strange that there was so little mention of the epidemic in military literature, considering the profound effect that it had.

Victors of a war can write their own version of history. We know when a secret scandal or crime is exposed, but by definition, never know at all of crimes that are not exposed. This biases us, foolishly, with the falsely reassuring notion that most scandals get exposed.

Perhaps the secret is kept, the men who know dare not tell, the old men who once knew carry the secret to their graves, history and reality themselves are altered, forever.

Against this shuddering thought, a possible truth should at least be vocalized:

If Germany had won the war, we would never hear about the gas warfare atrocities. The victors of a war tend significantly to whitewash their own behavior, while greatly exaggerating the atrocities of the enemy.

I was reading also of a long-suppressed report that became public in 1991 (sources: Journal for Historical Review; historians T. Allen and N Polmar, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, 8/4/95 [New York Times special features]). It described how American leaders planned to use poison gas against Japan, before the nuclear option became available. Hitler had also considered poison gas, but refrained. Our government had pledged not use poison gas, after WWI.

We would of course have the bias to assume that the nasty Germans would be the ones to use germ warfare.

It is my believe that such brutality is neither uniquely German nor American- it is uniquely human, the imagined differences reflecting mostly the power that pride and propaganda have over perception.

Supposedly, the Americans were hit first by the virus, but then again, when governments want to cover something up, they play games with when the epidemic started, where it started, who was most affected by it.

Of the clues, in my judgment of human nature, the great confusion and strange silence should trump the contrary clues. Thus far, I have not so much as seen the “G” word (germ warfare) even mentioned. It seems far more taboo than the other “G” word (you know what I mean).

Mothers know, when children are silent, they are probably up to no good. I suggest that when there is strange silence, it is probably because it was the Allies who tried the germ war, a Manhattan Project-style gamble that this time, truly did
backfire.

We will never know. It is better that someone, somewhere, should at least speculate on the possibility, if this should be the only expression of a truth that would be more profound than the Holocaust of the Second World War.

CHAPTER 2: THE SPANISH INFLUENZA EPIDEMIC OF 1918 WAS CAUSED BY VACCINATIONS

As has been stated before, all medical and non-medical authorities on vaccination agree that vaccines are designed to cause a mild case of the diseases they are supposed to prevent. But they also know and admit that there is no way whatsoever to predict whether the case will be mild or severe – even deadly. With this much uncertainty in dealing with the very lives of people, it is very unscientific and extremely dangerous to use such a questionable procedure as vaccination.

Many vaccines also cause other diseases besides the one for which they are given. For instance, smallpox vaccine often causes syphilis, paralysis, leprosy, and cancer. (See the chapters on smallpox and plagues.) Polio shots, diphtheria toxin-antitoxin, typhoid vaccine, as well as measles, tetanus and all other shots often cause various other stages of disease such as post-vaccinal encephalitis (inflammation of the brain,) paralysis, spinal meningitis, blindness, cancer (sometimes within two years,) tuberculosis, (two to twenty years after the shot,) arthritis, kidney disease, heart disease (heart failure sometimes within minutes after the shot and sometimes several hours later.) Nerve damage and many other serious conditions also follow the injections.

When several shots are given (different vaccines) within a few days or a few weeks apart, they often trigger intensified cases of all the diseases at once, because the body cannot handle such a large amount of deadly poison being injected directly into the bloodstream. The doctors call it a new disease and proceed to suppress the symptoms.

When poison is taken by the mouth, the internal defense system has a chance to quickly eject some of it by vomiting, but when the poisons are shot directly into the body, bypassing all the natural safeguards, these dangerous poisons circulate immediately throughout the entire body in a matter of seconds and keep on circulating until all the cells are poisoned.

I heard that seven men dropped dead in a doctor’s office after being vaccinated. This was in an army camp, so I wrote to the Government for verification. They sent me the report of U.S. Secretary of War, Henry L. Stimson. The report not only verified the report of the seven who dropped dead from the vaccines, but it stated that there had been 63 deaths and 28,585 cases of hepatitis as a direct result of the yellow fever vaccine during only 6 months of the war. That was only one of the 14 to 25 shots given the soldiers. We can imagine the damage that all these shots did to the men. (See the chapter on What Vaccinations Did to Our Soldiers.)

The first World War was of a short duration, so the vaccine makers were unable to use up all their vaccines. As they were (and still are) in business for profit, they decided to sell it to the rest of the population. So they drummed up the largest vaccination campaign in U.S. history. There were no epidemics to justify it so they used other tricks. Their propaganda claimed the soldiers were coming home from foreign countries with all kinds of diseases and that everyone must have all the shots on the market.

The people believed them because, first of all, they wanted to believe their doctors, and second, the returning soldiers certainly had been sick. They didn’t know it was from doctor-made vaccine diseases, as the army doctors don’t tell them things like that. Many of the returned soldiers were disabled for life by these drug-induced diseases. Many were insane from postvaccinal encephalitis, but the doctors called it shell shock, even though many had never left American soil.

The conglomerate disease brought on by the many poison vaccines baffled the doctors, as they never had a vaccination spree before which used so many different vaccines. The new disease they had created had symptoms of all the diseases they had injected into the man. There was the high fever, extreme weakness, abdominal rash and intestinal disturbance characteristic of typhoid. The diphtheria vaccine caused lung congestion, chills and fever, swollen, sore throat clogged with the false membrane, and the choking suffocation because of difficulty in breathing followed by gasping and death, after which the body turned black from stagnant blood that had been deprived of oxygen in the suffocation stages. In early days they called it Black Death. The other vaccines cause their own reactions — paralysis, brain damage, lockjaw, etc.

When doctors had tried to suppress the symptoms of the typhoid with a stronger vaccine, it caused a worse form of typhoid which they named paratyphoid. But when they concocted a stronger and more dangerous vaccine to suppress that one, they created an even worse disease which they didn’t have a name for. What should they call it? They didn’t want to tell the people what it really was — their own Frankenstein monster which they had created with their vaccines and suppressive medicines. They wanted to direct the blame away from themselves, so they called it Spanish Influenza. It was certainly not of Spanish origin, and the Spanish people resented the implication that the world-wide scourge of that day should be blamed on them. But the name stuck and American medical doctors and vaccine makers were not suspected of the crime of this widespread devastation — the 1918 Flu Epidemic. It is only in recent years that researchers have been digging up the facts and laying the blame where it belongs.

Some of the soldiers may have been in Spain before coming home, but their diseases originated in their own home-based U.S. Army Camps. Our medical men still use that same dodge. When their own vaccines (required for travel) cause vaccine diseases abroad they use this as grounds for a scare campaign to stampede people into the vaccination centers. Do you remember the Hong Kong Flu and the Asian Flu and the London Flu scares? These were all medically-made epidemics mixed with the usual common colds which people have every year.

Now (1976) we are being worked on again by the vaccine -epidemic makers in their effort to force another multi million dollar vaccine sale caper. Their con men have already talked President Ford into handing over $135 million dollars to start their vaccine racket. Even the insurance companies refused to become involved with such an obviously dangerous and crooked scheme. So, again the medical and drug con men induced the appropriate government officials to guarantee insurance against the, possible billions of dollars in law suits which could be brought against the vaccine promoters if the vaccine campaign is carried out as planned. It’s a good thing Ford was voted out of office. It’s too bad he wasn’t “dumped” before he paid the poison squad the MONEY’ to poison the whole population. However, we don’t yet know if President Carter will be any better. Will he be held in the grip of the medical and drug dictatorship? Or will he investigate — learn the truth — reverse the decisions and make the vaccine makers return the money taken from the taxpayers under false pretenses?

The statement of the swine flu vaccine promoters to the effect that the vaccine is harmless, is false, and the statement that it will protect against flu is false. Fifty-six people died after the shots, some within 48 hours. There is confusion and disagreement among the doctors about all aspects of the vaccine, from the safety and effectiveness to the necessity for it, who should have it and who should be warned against it.

Their scare-head campaign cry is that the swine flu is like the 1918 flu which killed 20,000,000 people. They don’t have any usable and provable blood samples from the 1918 flu epidemic to prove it. That was 58 years ago, and the doctors were just as confused and inefficient then as now. However, one thing is certain — the 1918 Spanish Influenza was a vaccine-induced disease caused by extreme body poisoning from the conglomeration of many different vaccines. The soldiers at Fort Dix who were said to have had Swine Flu had been injected with a large variety of vaccines like the vaccines which caused the 1918 flu epidemic. The flu epidemic at Fort Dix was in no way related to swine. There were no swine at camp (unless we want to sarcastically call the vaccine promoters who caused the diseases -“swine.”)

To add to the confusion, the doctors tell the people that there are a lot of various kinds of flu; the one which the soldiers at Fort Dix had was AVictoria flu, there are other strains of flu virus, and also, that the swine flu vaccine which so many people have taken already will not protect them against the many other types of flu. This will be used as an “out” in case of law suits later on when more casualties begin to show up. The doctors will say that the vaccine failed because it was the wrong kind of flu for the vaccine. Of course, no one can prove it one way or the other because viruses are illusive, invisible organisms which are unstable and unpredictable. One dictionary definition of virus is “a morbid poison.” The vaccines injected into the body are poison and cause the typical poison reactions. Virus (poison) does not fly around and attack people.

Therefore, there will be no swine flu epidemic unless the vaccine promoters make one like they did in the 1918 flu epidemic. It will not kill 20,000,000 people unless the people submit to the disease-producing shots. There are also, other causes of disease besides vaccines, such as bad food, which has been devitalized and contaminated with poison preservatives and artificial drug concoctions. There are many more causes of disease but no diseases are contagious(See the chapter on the germ theory).

Vaccine drives come and go as often as the vaccine promoters can cook up the slightest pretense of a reason.n Back in1957 they were trying to stir up a vaccination campaign for what they decided to call Asiatic flu. An editorial in the Herald and Express for August 29, 1957 was captioned, “Fear of Flu Propaganda.” Part of the piece is as follows:

“What a tempest in a teapot has been blown up over the probability that this country will experience an epidemic of the Asiatic flu in the fall and winter months ahead.

“Even the United States Department of Health is stooge for the panic — and has issued statements which are frightening the public, rather than reassuring them by pointing out that this epidemic, while widespread, gives no indication of being any more dangerous than our usual flood of influenza-like colds when winter comes on.

“Those who read between the lines even wonder whether the whole thing might not be a bit of super salesmanship on the part of those who are making and selling the vaccines which are being prepared.. . .”

I WAS AN ON-THE-SPOT OBSERVER OF THE 1918 INFLUENZA EPIDEMIC

All the doctors and people who were living at the time of the 1918 Spanish Influenza epidemic say it was the most terrible disease the world has ever had. Strong men, hale and hearty, one day would be dead the next. The disease had the characteristics of the black death added to typhoid, diphtheria, pneumonia, smallpox, paralysis and all the diseases the people had been vaccinated with immediately following World War 1. Practically the entire population had been injected “seeded” with a dozen or more diseases — or toxic serums. When all those doctor-made diseases started breaking out all at once it was tragic.

That pandemic dragged on for two years, kept alive with the addition of more poison drugs administered by the doctors who tried to suppress the symptoms. As far as I could find out, the flu hit only the vaccinated. Those who had refused the shots escaped the flu. My family had refused all the vaccinations so we remained well all the time. We knew from the health teachings of Graham, Trail, Tilden and others, that people cannot contaminate the body with poisons without causing disease.

When the flu was at its peak, all the stores were closed as well as the schools, businesses — even the hospital, as the doctors and nurses had been vaccinated too and were down with the flu. No one was on the streets. It was like a ghost town. We seemed to be the only family which didn’t get the flu; so my parents went from house to house doing what they could to look after the sick, as it was impossible to get a doctor then. If it were possible for germs, bacteria, virus, or bacilli to cause disease, they had plenty of opportunity to attack my parents when they were spending many hours a day in the sick rooms. But they didn’t get the flu and they didn’t bring any germs home to attack us children and cause anything. None of our family had the flu — not even a sniffle— and it was in the winter with deep snow on the ground.

When I see people cringe when someone near them sneezes or coughs, I wonder how long it will take them to find out that they can’t catch it — whatever it is. The only way they can get a disease is to develop it themselves by wrong eating, drinking, smoking or doing some other things which cause internal poisoning and lowered vitality. All diseases are preventable and most of them are cureable with the right methods, not known to medical doctors, and not all drugless doctors know them either.

It has been said that the 1918 flu epidemic killed 20,000,000 people throughout the world. But, actually, the doctors killed them with their crude and deadly treatments and drugs. This is a harsh accusation but it is nevertheless true, judging by the success of the drugless doctors in comparison with that of the medical doctors.

While the medical men and medical hospitals were losing 33% of their flu cases, the non-medical hospitals such as BATTLE CREEK, KELLOGG and MACFADDEN’S HEALTH-RESTORIUM were getting almost 100% healings with their water cure, baths, enemas, etc., fasting and certain other simple healing methods, followed by carefully worked out diets of natural foods. One health doctor didn’t lose a patient in eight years. The very successful health treatment of one of those drugless doctors who didn’t lose any patients will be given in the other part of this book, titled VACCINATION CONDEMNED, to be published a little later.

If the medical doctors had been as advanced as the drugless doctors, there would not have been those 20 million deaths from the medical flu treatment.

There was seven times more disease among the vaccinated soldiers than among the unvaccinated civilians, and the diseases were those they had been vaccinated against. One soldier who had returned from overseas in 1912 told me that the army hospitals were filled with cases of infantile paralysis and he wondered why grown men should have an infant disease. Now, we know that paralysis is a common after-effect of vaccine poisoning. Those at home didn’t get the paralysis until after the world-wide vaccination campaign in 1918.

  1. Aspirin, as Harry has noted, can promote bleeding. With a hemorrhagic fever, this is not a good thing! The other thing that Aspirin is noted for, and which the article does NOT discuss, is that Aspirin lowers a fever. But a fever is your body’s way of telling you that it is killing that nasty virus. The high temp. helps to kill the bad bug. So you do NOT want to lower the temp, unless it gets to about 104-105 degrees or so. I suspect that the real role of Aspirin was to lower the temperatures, too soon, before the fever had a chance to do its work. So the bug was able to continue reproducing…

  2. And is it only me, or does anyone else see the potato famine in Ireland a deliberate man-made famine to steer the Irish state side? They came in such a drove, they were despised by the IMMIGRUNTS who were here 20, 30 years prior. The Gangs Of New York does an okay job at this, especially when the get off the boat, and Tammany Hall gives them uniforms, a gun and conscripts them to the war in the south.

  3. Ian, I have read that the patent on Asperin had expired allowing for an explosion of it’s usage about the time of the Spanish Flu. Young men were literally given handfulls of Asperin and simply bled to death.

  4. Every time I think I know about world events . . . I open up VT and read about another gloss over of historical events. I’ve not read the article word-for-word, sometimes I can’t take it all in.

    doesn’t appear to be working.

    But I take it this was published 15-years ago. Well, since nothing has changed, good to re-publish and compare notes.

    I got very sick from vaccines as a child. My son got very sick from vaccines as an infant. Ironically, I worked for a short time at a law firm that “defended” the vaccine manufacture. I didn’t know what I know now. I worked on a case where a patient, a little infant from an underdeveloped nation had a vaccine administered. He convulsed immediately upon injection, and air was restricted. His infant brain (he was only 3 months old) struck the inside of his skull with such violence, it was like “shaken baby syndrome” . . . only medically induced!

    I will repeat: It was like “shaken baby syndrome” only MEDICALLY INDUCED!

    He became a quadriplegic, or paraplegic, I forget which severity, but he would became unable to care for himself for the rest of his days. His parents were not prepared for this.

    The pharmaceutical firm, and the law firm I worked for “defended.” How can they do that?!? Make money off of what happened, billing their big pharma client is how!

  5. Vaccines have never cured one disease. They are the sole cause of major diseases that caused the death of millions of people. There is nothing more dangerous to the human body than Murder by Injection. A good read by Eustace Mullins. Brain dead Americans, hopelessly misguided mothers and ignorant narcicistic allopaths are all responsible for taking the lives of our children and brave veterans. It’s an abomination.
