A Bioforming Pandemic: U.S. Government Funded Killer Bird Flu Research ~ Preparing for Global "9-11" Event?

By Aaron Hermann ( Revelation of Babylon blog )

The United States Federal government is responsible for funding the efforts of Dutch researcher Ron Fouchier and Japanese researcher Yoshihiro Kawaoka to transform the bird flu into a killer superbug easily transmissable from person-to-person, exponentially increasing the likelihood of a global pandemic.

It is widely accepted that the first case of bird flu in humans occurred in May 1997 when a person caught the H5N1 virus in Hong Kong and ultimately died from the disease. Since that time avian influenza, more popularly referred to as bird flu has been viewed as a looming threat and a likely agent triggering a global pandemic. What most people do not realize is that the world has already been through a global pandemic and witnessed the type of global suffering and catastrophic results an outbreak of bird flu can cause.

The outbreak to which I am referring is the global "Spanish Flu" pandemic of 1918. The name is exceptionally misleading as the virus that killed between 60-100 million people between 1918 and 1920 was a type of bird flu. Patient Zero was an American Solider from Kansas who was shipped off to World War I and took the virus with him. According to an article published in the New York Times in 1995, Dr. Jeffrey Taubenberger located shards of the extinct 1918 "Spanish Flu" virus in the corpses of dead soldiers buried in permafrost. Taubenberger concluded that the virus was in fact a bird flu, and then set about to recreate the virus that swept the globe in 1918. What could possibly go wrong with that? Right.

Dr. Taubenberger and his colleagues were successful in recreating the virus, and found something rather unsettling:

When he compared the 1918 virus with today's human flu viruses, Dr. Taubenberger noticed that it had alterations in just 25 to 30 of the virus's 4,400 amino acids. Those few changes turned a bird virus into a killer than could spread from person to person."

It seems that the fact there were only a small number of alterations necessary to transform a bird flu virus into a killer superbug easily transmissable from person-to-person caught the attention of a rogue nation firmly in the grip of Satan who appears to be attempting to create the perfect bio-weapon. What rogue Satanic nation would ever conceive of doing something like this that could have such potentially horrific global ramifications? Iran? Pakistan? Russia? If you guessed any of those nations I commend you for a good guess, but the nation to which I am referring is none other than the United States of America.

Science Magazine conducted an interview with Fouchier in January, 2012 and pointed out that the U.S. Federal government had funded his research, specifically pointing to the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases as the agency directly responsible for the funding:

Q: Who took the initiative for this announcement?

R.F.: The initiative came from Adolfo Sastre-García [an influenza researcher at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City who has a grant from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) that funded Fouchier's study], Yoshihiro Kawaoka [whose H5N1 study, in press at Nature, has also been reviewed by the U.S. National Science Advisory Board for Biosecurity (NSABB)], and myself. We discussed it with a group of about 10 scientists who are doing similar studies themselves; then we asked another 30 or so influenza researchers who are not working on these studies but who could do them, if they wanted to sign. They all agreed wholeheartedly. So it's not a Fouchier show. It's an initiative that is supported very broadly. Interview With Ron Fouchier

The U.S. Medicine website, whose tagline is "The Voice of Federal Medicine", ran a story in February, 2012 documenting the work done by Foucher and Kawaoka, pointing out that their bird flu research was being Federally funded:

Two research groups — one at the University of Wisconsin-Madison led by Yoshihiro Kawaoka, PhD, and one at Erasmus Medical Center in Rotterdam led by Ron Fouchier, PhD, whose work was funded by the National institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) — have shown the relative ease by which more dangerous strains of H5N1 can be generated.

"Flu Research Sparks Debate About Bioterrorism and Government Control"

An article appearing on the website in March had this to say:

The U.S. government’s biosecurity advisers said Friday they support publishing research studies showing how scientists made new easy-to-spread forms of bird flu because the studies, now revised, don’t reveal details bioterrorists could use.

The decision could end a debate that began in December when the government took the unprecedented step of asking the scientists not to publicize all the details of their work.

The research, by two scientific teams — one in Wisconsin, the other in the Netherlands — was funded by the United States. It was an effort to learn more about the potential threat from bird flu in Asia. The virus so far doesn’t spread easily among people. But the new lab-made viruses spread easily among ferrets, suggesting they would also spread among humans.

"Panel backs sharing studies of lab-made bird flu"

An interview conducted by "Internal Medicine News" in early August with the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Dr. Anthony Fauci was rather also rather telling:

Following the 8-month controversy over mammalian-transmissible H5N1 avian influenza research, Dr. Anthony Fauci warned at a meeting of flu researchers in New York this week that more voices are needed in discussion about the risks and benefits of such research.

Until a process is in place and a forum created for such an open discussion, the voluntary research moratorium on strains of H5N1 flu that can pass between mammals by a respiratory route should stay in place, he advised.

Dr. Fauci added in his talk that officials from several departments of the executive branch of the U.S. government are creating such a forum, which he hopes will be in place before the end of this year.

"It’s a different situation now. Times have changed. The rest of the world is concerned about the lack of transparency and input on biosafety and biosecurity when decisions were made" to fund and conduct the studies done by Ron A.M. Fouchier and Yoshihiro Kawaoka that created H5N1 influenza mutants that could transmit between ferrets, Dr. Fauci said in a telephone interview following his talk at the flu meeting on July 31.

"NIAID Director Fauci Urges Transparency in H1N1 (sic) Flu Research"

Not only does this interview provide further confirmation of the U.S. Federal government funding the research conducted by Fouchier and Kawaoka, it also provides a moment of levity as one pictures them attempting to "close the barn door" after all of the horses have not just left the barn, but immigrated to other countries.

For the last couple of months I have been writing a great deal about the ongoing "9-11" and "9-12" signaling taking place, and expressing my belief that a global pandemic will be the "9-11" triggering mechanism that brings forth the subsequent "9-12" police state world. What transpired during "The Fourth ESWI Influenza Conference" in Malta from September 11-14th, 2011 only strengthens my belief.

According to an article by Katherine Harmon, Fouchier presented his bird flu research on the morning of September 12th in the "Eden Arena" portion of the Intercontinental Hotel. In her article Harmon writes:

"...Just across the hall, however, in the cannily named Eden Arena, the room was dark, as researchers prepared to mount the stage and explain some of the many ways that humanity might soon be threatened by a truly terrifying flu pandemic.

So maybe it wasn’t quite that dramatic, but perhaps it should have felt more so. Less than an hour later, a suspiciously sniffly Ron Fouchier, a lanky virologist from the Erasmus Medical Center in Rotterdam with a wry smile and reassuringly understated manner, would announce that he and his lab had found a way to make the deadly H5N1 that would likely be just as transmissible from one human to the next as the seasonal flu.

Circulating seasonal strains, such as H3N2, are adept at attaching to the human nasal cavity and trachea, making them easily transferable among people via a sneeze, cough or sigh. But fortunately for us, H5N1, as it has circulated in bird populations, has not yet developed this capability. Fouchier and his team wanted to see if it was possible to give it that power.

So they “mutated the hell out of H5N1,” Fouchier said, towering over the podium at the meeting’s Monday morning plenary session. But as it turns out, they hardly needed to. With just a few genetic substitutions, the virus was able to affix to nose and trachea cells—a development “which seemed to be very bad news,” he said. Fortunately for the lab’s test ferrets, a common animal model for human flu transmission, the flu still didn’t seem to pass airborne from animal to animal.

And that was when “someone finally convinced me to do something really, really stupid,” Fouchier recounted. They put the mutated H5N1 into the nose of one ferret, then took a sample of nasal fluid from that ferret and put it in the nose of another. After 10 ferrets, the virus began spreading from ferret to ferret via the air just about as easily as a seasonal flu virus.

In all that ferret hopping, the virus gained only five new genetic substitutions. And that was also “very bad news,” Fouchier proclaimed, adding an “indeed” for emphasis, just in case the ramifications were lost on any of the hundreds of flu folks in the audience.

At the time, Fouchier declined to specify the exact locations of the mutations but noted that the key substitutions are in the HA and PB2 areas. All of the mutations needed to make the virus an airborne threat have already been detected in the wild, but they have not been found together in a single virus “just yet,” Fouchier noted. The discovery also confirmed that H5N1 would not need to mingle with a mammalian virus before becoming easily transmissible among us.

"What Really Happened in Malta This September When Contagious Bird Flu Was First Announced"

Just to recount, on 9-12 2011 in the Eden Arena Ron Fouchier gave an account of his work that has transformed the bird flu into a mutated highly virulent version easily transmissable between humans. Ominous.

At the risk of being redundant, and in the effort of trying to adequately convey the seriousness of what has been done, I would like to present this quote from chairman of the U.S National Science Advisory Board for Biosecurity Paul Kleim, in which he provides his opinion of what Fouchier achieved with his research:

I can't think of another pathogenic organism that is as scary as this one. I don't think anthrax is scary at all compared to this.

"'Anthrax isn't scary at all compared to this': Man-made flu virus with potential to wipe out many millions if it ever escaped is created in research lab"

A layperson making such an assessment is one thing, but when the chairmain of the U.S. National Science Advisory Board for Biosecurity boldly proclaims that no other "pathogenic organism is as scary as this one," we should all take notice. The man appointed to head the NSABB is of the opinion that Anthrax pales in comparison to what Fouchier created in his Federally funded lab, and Paul Kleim should know, with credentials that command our respect.

At this point we must ask the pressing question: "Why are the Feds funding research to turn bird flu into a killer superbug easily transmitted between people?" There is a fair amout of plausible deniability that one can engage in here as the official explanation tells us that the work being done was necessary preemptive medical research carried out in the best interest of humanity in order to create a vaccine before a global pandemic strikes. I understand that some of you may be finding it hard to let go of the idea that this nation is a land of the free and the home of the brave, but it is time to wake up, people.

I know that some will be unwilling to accept that the Feds are engaging in such shady practices. If you find yourself thinking along those lines, please allow me to pull back the wizard's curtain a bit further and as I do perhaps you may be convinced there is something far more nefarious taking place here.

In December 2011, Laurie Garret pointed out a rather unsettling connection between the U.S. funded research of Fouchier and Kawaoka, and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton:

In September, an amiable Dutchman stepped up to the podium at a scientific meeting convened on the island of Malta and announced that he had created a form of influenza that could well be the deadliest contagious disease humanity has ever faced. The bombshell announcement, by virologist Ron Fouchier of Erasmus Medical Center, sparked weeks of vigorous debate among the world's experts on bioterrorism, influenza, virology, and national security over whether the research should have been performed or announced and whether it should ever be published.

Meanwhile, a joint Japanese-American research team led by the University of Wisconsin's Yoshihiro Kawaoka says that it, too, has manufactured a superflu...

The interest in this brave new world of biology is not limited to the scientific community. U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made a surprise visit to Geneva on Dec. 7, addressing the Biological Weapons Convention review conference. The highest-ranking U.S. official to speak to the biological weapons group in decades, Clinton warned, "The emerging gene-synthesis industry is making genetic material widely available. This obviously has many benefits for research, but it could also potentially be used to assemble the components of a deadly organism."

"A crude but effective terrorist weapon can be made by using a small sample of any number of widely available pathogens, inexpensive equipment, and college-level chemistry and biology," Clinton also stated. "Less than a year ago al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula made a call to arms for, and I quote, 'brothers with degrees in microbiology or chemistry to develop a weapon of mass destruction.'"

"The Bioterrorist Next Door: Man-made killer bird flu is here. Can -- should -- governments try to stop it?"

Is it me, or does this entire situation carry the same rancid odor as the official story of the "weapons of mass destruction" offered by the government not that long ago? By now we should all be very familiar with this odor, and I will let you provide your own adjectives to accurately describe it.

I find it rather interesting, and more than just a bit ominous, that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made a "surprise visit" to the Biological Weapons Convention and planted the seed of al Qaeda terrorist activity as the agents prepared to carry out a biological attack. Hillary and the rest of the practicing, high-level witches in Washington can spew forth whatever lies they believe the sleeping masses will find most convicing. The fact of the matter is that the Feds are sponsoring this conspiracy.

We are being set up.

I believe that Hillary's visit to the convention was not a "last minute" move on her part. Her visit was designed to prepare the cover in advance of a false flag event that will make the rapid identification of the agents responsible after such an event more plausible. It is not hard to imagine this designer superbug being unleashed during an engagement in the Middle East and then blamed on Iran prompting further engagement that must certainly come. It certainly seems as they are going about business as usual laying the necessary groundwork to enable them to point the finger at a rogue nation state, terrorists, or a byproduct of chemical warfare if they choose to go in that direction.

There are nearly endless possibilites of how this may come about, and the only thing we can do at this point is continue to seek the Lord Jesus Christ, watch, and pray!

More to come, Lord willing.
