"In what is now known as "the Great Swine Flu Massacre," the President of the
United States, Gerald Ford, was enlisted to persuade the public to undergo a
national vaccination campaign. The moving force behind the scheme was a $135
million windfall profit for the major drug manufacturers. They had a "swine flu"
vaccine which suspicious pig raisers had refused to touch, fearful it might wipe
out their crop. The manufacturers had only tried to get $80 million from the
swine breeders; balked in this sale, they turned to the other market, humans.
The impetus for the national swine flu vaccine came directly from the Disease
Control Center in Atlanta, Georgia. Perhaps coincidentally, Jimmy Carter, a
member of the Trilateral Commission, was then planning his presidential campaign
in Georgia. The incumbent President, Gerald Ford, had
all the advantages of a massive bureaucracy to aid him in his election campaign,
while the ineffectual and little known. Jimmy Carter offered no serious threat
to the election. Suddenly, out of Atlanta, came the Centre
for Disease Control plan for a national immunization
campaign against "swine flu." The fact that there was not a single
known case of this flu in the United States did not deter the Medical Monopoly
from their scheme. The swine breeders had been shocked
by the demonstrations of the vaccine on a few pigs,
which had collapsed and died. One can imagine the
anxious inferences in the headquarters of the great drug firms,
until one bright young man remarked, "Well, if the
swine breeders won't inject it into their animals, our
only other market is to inject it into people."
The Ford-sponsored swine flu campaign almost died an early death, when a conscientious public servant, Dr. Anthony Morris, formerly of HEW and then active as director of the Virus Bureau of the Food and Drug Administration, declared that there could be no authentic swine flu vaccine, because there had never teen any cases of swine flu on which they could test it. Dr. Morris then went public with his statement that "at no point were the swine flu vaccines effective." He was promptly fired, but the damage had been done. The damage control consisted of that great humanitarian, Walter Cronkite, and the President of the United States, combining their forces to come to the rescue of the Medical Monopoly. Walter Cronkite had President Ford appear on his news program to urge the American people to submit to the inoculation with the swine flu vaccine. CBS then or later could never find any reason to air any analysis or scientific critique of the swine flu vaccine, which was identified as containing many toxic poisons, including alien viral protein panicles, formaldehyde, thimerosal (a derivative of poisonous mercury), polysorbate and some eighty other substances. Meanwhile, back at the virus laboratories, after Dr. Anthony Morris has been summarily fired, a special team of workers was rushed in to clean out the four rooms in which he had conducted his scientific tests. The laboratory was filled with animals whose records verified his claims, representing some three yean of constant research. All of thr animals were immediately destroyed, and Morris' records were burned. They did net go so far as to sow salt throughout the area, because they believed their job was done.
On April I5, 1976, Congress passed Public Law 94-266, which provided $135 million of taxpayers' funds to pay for a national swine flu inoculation campaign. HEW was to distribute the vaccine to state and local health agencies on a national basis for inoculation, at no charge. Insurance agencies then went public with their warning that they would not insure drug firms against possible studies from the results of swine flu inoculation, because no studies had been carried out which could predict its effects. It was to foil the insurance companies that CBS had Gerald Ford make his impassioned appeal to 215,000,000 Americans to save themselves while there was still time, and to rush down to the friendly local health department and get the swine flu vaccination, at absolutely no charge. This may have been CBS' finest hour in its distinguished career of "public service."
Hardly had the swine flu campaign been completed than the reports of the casualties began to pour in. Within a few months, claims totalling $1.3 billion had been filed by victims who had suffered paralysis from the swine flu vaccine. The medical authorities proved equal to the challenge; they leaped to the defense of the Medical Monopoly by labeling the new epidemic, "Guillain-Barre Syndrome." There have since been increasing speculations that the ensuing epidemic of AIDS which began shortly after Gerald Ford's public assurances, were merely a viral variation of the swine flu vaccine. And what of the perpetrator of the Great Swine Flu Massacre, President Gerald Ford? As the logical person to blame for the catastrophe, Ford had to endure a torrent of public criticism, which quite naturally resulted in his defeat for election (he had previously been appointed when the agents of the international drag operations had ushered Richard Nixon out of office). The unknown Jimmy Carter, familiar only to the supersecret fellow members of the Trilateral Commission, was swept into office by the outpouring of rage against Gerald Ford. Carter proved to be almost as serious a national disaster as the swine flu epidemic, while Gerald Ford was retired from politics to life. Not only did he lose the election, he was also sentenced to spend his remaining years trudging wearily up and down the hot sandy stretches of the Palm Springs Golf course. --Eustace Mullins
