Get ready for the return of the bird-flu super hype as the 2012 election nears. I’ve notice stories about bird-flu on the rise. Flu season starts right around election time right? Martial law would stop the election right?
There’s even a story about scientist creating a version of the flu in the laboratory that is easily transmissible from birds to humans.
If you recall, as I do, there were stories in 2007/2008 about plans for the government to declare martial law and mandate that everyone receive bird-flu vaccinations. Obama even declared a state of emergency as the WHO issued it’s highest level of threat (pandemic) concerning the bird-flu.
There were reports of Guard units being trained on how to cordon off areas for quarantine and set up roadblock checkpoints to check the populace and administer the shots or quarantine citizens refusing the shots.
There was massive public resistance with millions declaring on social media sites and public gatherings that they would not take the shots, even groups of healthcare givers, EMS workers, doctors and nurses. So much so that I believe they had to postpone their nefarious plans.
Don’t think for a minute that they forsook the plan though…
