Obama meets an archeologist who is the keeper of, among other things, some UFO artifacts in Mexico City, and then the guy dies of the flu. Weird.
I had a roommate from Mexico City who recently returned to live there. That was a month ago. I’ve had a sore throat that won’t go away for about a week now, and a swollen gland, but no other symptoms. So, I’m keeping my eyes on the news. (But I think in my case the problem is that I cracked a tooth and there is probably an infection under the temporary filling. )
I would not be terribly surprised if some mad scientist (perhaps a rogue like Bruce Ivins, or a group) is plotting to reduce the world population with a virus since there are too many of us. We won’t stop breeding.
The first case was seen in Mexico on April 13. The outbreak coincided with the President Barack Obama’s trip to Mexico City on April 16. Obama was received at Mexico’s anthropology museum in Mexico City by Felipe Solis, a distinguished archeologist who died the following day from symptoms similar to flu, Reforma newspaper reported. The newspaper didn’t confirm if Solis had swine flu or not.
The Mexican government is distributing breathing masks to curtail the disease’s spread. There is no vaccine against the new strain of swine flu, health authorities said.
Museums, theaters and other venues in the Mexico City area, where large crowds gather, have shut down voluntarily and concerts and other events canceled to help contain the disease. Two professional soccer games will be played tomorrow in different Mexico City stadiums without any fans, El Universal newspaper reported. Catholic masses will be held, the newspaper said, although church officials urged worshipers to wear breath masks and to avoid contact.
Schools will likely remain closed next week, Calderon said in the Oaxaca speech. The decree allows Calderon to regulate transportation, enter any home or building for inspection, order quarantines and assign any task to all federal, state and local authorities as well as health professionals to combat the disease.
“The health of Mexicans is a cause that we’re defending with unity and responsibility,” Calderon said. “I know that although it’s a grave problem, a serious problem, we’re going to overcome it.” – bloomberg
Reading the comments on Above Top Secret about this, there you can extract several possibilities.
1) Random event, just a coincidence. (Sounds most reasonable, but what are the odds?) 2) An attack on Obama with swine flu by someone in Mexico. 3) An attack on Obama by Dick Cheney or someone loyal to the Bush clan. 4) An attack on Mexico by someone traveling with Obama. 5) Part of a secret joint effort by both leaders to thin the world’s population. 6) Someone wanted Solis dead unrelated to his visit with Obama.
Obama shook hands with the man who died according to a few secondary sources, but no major outlets are reporting that they shook hands. We will know within 3 weeks if Obama will get sick, but I’m sure they are taking all the proper precautions. Tamiflu works to stop the Swine Flu if taken early enough.
White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said Saturday that “the Presidents trip to Mexico has not put his health in any danger.” – sb
Interestingly, to me anyway, there are UFO artifacts at the Museum.
This amazing Basalt Stela … depicts an Olmec (priest?) operating a flying machine. His right hand is elevated utilizing some sort of ‘joy-stick’ handle type device to give the craft directional movement or added thrust. The Olmec’s facial expression suggests he is somewhat bored operating the craft, in-other-words, he has flown it countless times before. The serpent’s mouth could simply be an air-intake opening, part of the vehicle’s design.
… Officially called Monument 19, it is now in the National Museum of Anthropology, Mexico City. The Basalt Stela is 95cm high and was originally found at La venta.
From another photo this remarkable rendition of a bas-relief (shown below) clearly shows a Mayan priest within a cross-sectional view of a bell-shaped flying machine. I’ve highlighted the air-current or flame produced underneath the craft. Note the rectangular ‘box’ the priest is holding. He appears to be holding it with great care. … – darkstar
The Swine flu is different from the Equine virus, missing from Ft. D, I think. But was Obama in West Palm Beach, Florida to see those horses before they died by any chance? No, I think not. This person posting on Craigslist seems to think the missing virus is what killed the polo horses.
On April 22, 2009 CNN reported that missing vials of a potentially dangerous virus have prompted an Army investigation into the disappearance from a lab in Maryland.
The Army’s Criminal Investigation Command agents have been visiting Fort Detrick in Frederick, Maryland, to investigate the disappearance of the vials. The vials contained samples of Venezuelan Equine Encephalitis, a virus that sickens horses and can be spread to humans by mosquitoes. In 97 percent of cases, humans with the virus suffer flu-like symptoms, but it can be deadly in about 1 out of 100 cases, according to Caree Vander Linden, a spokeswoman for the Army’s Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases. There is an effective vaccine for the disease and there hasn’t been an outbreak in the United States since 1971. …
The CNN report comes just a few days after it had also reported that 21 thoroughbred horses dropped dead in a mysterious scene Sunday April 19, 2009 before a polo match near West Palm Beach, Florida. State and local veterinary teams were reported to be trying to figure out what happened at the International Polo Club Palm Beach in Wellington, Florida, as team Lechuza Caracas prepared to compete in a U.S. Open match. In all 21 horses from a Venezuelan team died suddenly in the mystery outbreak that has left the sport in shock. The horses from the Lechuza Caracas team were due to appear in the semi-final of the US Open in Florida, the most high-profile event in the American polo calendar and a highlight of the international circuit. The head of a Tallahassee-based pharmacy has stated on Thursday that it incorrectly mixed a medication that was given to 21 horses and US officials are accepting this as the cause of death.
… Humans also can contract this disease. Healthy adults who become infected by the virus may experience flu-like symptoms, such as high fevers and headaches. People with weakened immune systems and the young and the elderly can become severely ill or die from this disease. Another virus Swine influenza has very similar symptoms. Swine influenza is an acute respiratory disease of pigs caused by influenza A virus. This virus like the Venezuelan Equine Encephalitis virus is also associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Just today April 24, 2009 CNN reported that Mexico City has closed schools as a result of an outbreak of swine influenza that has been linked to 60 deaths in Mexico and infecting people in the US. U.S. health officials expressed concern Friday that a swine flu virus that has infected eight people in the United States matches samples of a virus that has killed at least 60 people in Mexico. U.S. health experts also are concerned because nearly 1,000 people have fallen ill in Mexico City in a short period of time. – craigslist
The mixture being blamed for the 21 horse deaths, Biodyl, is just vitamins I think. I also found this:
“Necropsies of the 21 horses found internal bleeding, some in the lungs, but offered no definitive clues to the cause of death.” – naplesnews
Though Biodyl by itself is unlikely to have killed the prized horses, veterinary experts say, it may have been part of a deadly, home-brew concoction whose legality could also be in question.
… We have no doubt about the origin of the problem,” Nero told the newspaper. “There were five horses that were not given the vitamin and they’re the only ones that are fine.” – orlando
