Part III, Spanish Flu On The Comeback

Jenny Lake
Zionist researchers know that the areas of commercial exploitation holding interest to the I.G. Farben-complex were targeted as primary locations of Rothschild-sponsored "Jewish colonization". Farben's program and the Zionist program were one and the same. During the 1920s a "regrouped Farben" (organized by the Warburg brothers) made its official alliance with the Standard Oil-complex as business partners, making world industrial dominance a foregone conclusion. But as Howard W. Ambruster points out in Treason's Peace, "When World War II began, Farben was not in such complete control of the coal-tar dye industry in the U.S. as its predecessors [the "Big Six"] had been in 1914".
 
1914, with Europe erupting into war and I.G. agents dominating America's chemical business, is one of those "war conditions" attributed to spreading influenza that is not acknowledged in the Flu books of John Barry and Gina Kolata. Barry does set up a medical history, however, that begins with a common explanation of early "patent medicine" as nostrums of mercury, arsenic, antimony, iodine, strychnine, and nitroglycerin. He writes disparagingly on page 30 about the condition of professionalism, "In America the titles of Professor and Doctor went to anyone who claimed them"; further in the book describing Dr. Simon Flexner as a man who quit school in the sixth grade, spent his youth in deliquency, completed a 2-year course of study at the Louisville College of Pharmacy in one year, and put in time studying medicine at night school (the school name is never given, but mentioned as "terrible"on p.82). Barry describes him as "making sudden impossible leaps". Later Flexner went to work by invitation for William Welch at the Hopkins lab, a position which garnered him a professorship at the University of Pennsylvania and led to his ultimate post at the top of the Rockefeller. (Hey John! Ya mean this kind of professor/doctor?) Flexner would say of himself, "I have never been educated in any branch of learning. There are great gaps in my knowledge", with the addition from Barry that "He had an edgy insecurity [that] never left him." On his own doctoring experience, Simon Flexner said, "I never made a physical examination. I never heard a heart or lung sound", but we are assured by Barry that he did get an M.D. So why doesn't he tell us?
 
Reader beware. We are confronted with a story in "The Great Influenza" that concludes in its Afterword for accepting the authority of a public health system built upon the likes of Dr. Flexner and his proteges, or Dr. Welch and his proteges, or other science pioneers in pharmaceuticals who "grandfathered" their way in to supreme positions of responsibility for which they were not qualified, closing the doors behind them through the influence of the "Flexner Report". It is ONLY by conspiratorial means that such men ascended to and maintained their powerful jobs. By these means also druggists like William E. Weiss, and his business partner Albert H. Diebold, stood astride one the largest of Farben's pharmaceutical industries, Sterling-Winthrop.(1). Sterling Products, Inc., founded in 1901, bought out over 140 companies before becoming a division of Eastman Kodak in the 1980s.(since sold to SmithKline Beecham). By 1910, Sterling was the owner of United Drug Stores with over 6,840 locations. It won its way to world's number one through aggressive marketing and acquisitions, and many favorable legal judgements. Simon Flexner's close friend, Judge Learned Hand, passed a decision on the generic use of the term "aspirin" that would gain Sterling the advantage of brand recognition by using it's patent name "Bayer", the signature Farben over-the-counter property, worth tens of millions in sales dollars per year, then.
 
Elucidating the array of industrial and pharmaceutical chemicals available at any given time has never been done. There's no list. In "The Hundred Year Lie" by Randall Fitzgerald, he estimates 75,000 chemicals currently in use, with fewer than 3000 ever tested for "safety". Others put the figure of chemicals in use at 80,000 with a smaller figure for testing....and more and newer viruses and illnesses are turning up. But there is an encouraging truth in medicine and immunology --that we have adaptability, even from articificial inducements. And we have German "New Medicine", the work of Dr. Ryke Geerd Hamer who is modeling a new paradigm in health and disease, based on the physiological response of deep emotion. (2). Hamer, who has been jailed and persecuted by Zionists, is experiencing the reward of doctors daring to break new ground outside of the orthodoxy; in this particular case, the orthodox thought police.  People today can appreciate that the natural connection of emotions with health bears a pathology, because people have always known it. Dr. Hamer's genius has been in recognizing it within the accepted practices of allopathy and its allotted tools of the trade --a great irony it seems as orthodoxy is the very model of medicine that enabled Hamer's discovery. With the added perspective of Dr. Hamer's views on disease brought to the exposition of pandemics, there is no question that the emotions in the winds of 1918 (fear, grief, and exhaustion by warfare) made the time very ripe.
 
The ranging descriptions of 1918's Spanish Flu include signs that are indistinguishable from acute nitrate toxicosis --in animals, that is--sudden onset of acute respiratory distress, dark brown cyanotic spotting and discoloration of mucosal and serosal surfaces, sudden collapse, abdominal pain and diarrhea, hemorrhage and edema, cardiovascular insufficiency, intense anxiety and CNS involvement, muscle tremors, weakness, wobbly gait, 4 hour onset of symptoms running of a clinical course in 12-24 hours, and in some cases without apparent illness: sudden death.....At the time of this article, the comparisons best in evidence are in the veterinary manuals, where the above list is taken (3) but it could just as easily have come off the pages of "The Great Influenza". Perhaps the Spanish Flu is the only largescale nitrogen poisoning to have ever occurred in just the right combination of circumstances, one can speculate. Animals adapt to high levels of nitrates in feed and forage as long as they are gradually introduced by incremental increases. It seems logical from the literature that we do too. The chronic and nonacute effects of nitrogen imbalance in animals is retarded growth, vitamin A deficiency, lowered milk production, goitrogenic effects, and susceptibilty to infection. It seems to be the essential "sensitizer" of the population, a widescale situation that can be brought on by a commercial corn-based diet (and other food grains), a concentrated amount of prepared food products, and the ingestion of a spectrum of nitrogen medicaments and sundries. That scenario is descriptive of army life, and to the industrial way of life in general --and would have been the "modern" and "scientific" appealling lifestyle of the Progressive Era just as it is today. But the 1918 Flu, still, was a smorgasbord of possibilities.
 
   The flu investigators were in agreement --the only agreement among them-- that pneumonia as a secondary opportunistic inflection was the true menace. Their problem, and henceforth our problem, was that they took only one view toward solving the mystery --finding the microscopic inhabitant responsible for the mayhem! The handful of men who organized themselves into the official "pneumonia commission" early in 1918, would reorganize themselves into the "influenza commission" later in the year --the same group with the same approach! The same-old-same...Could they (Welch, Flexner, Rosenau, Rivers, et.al.)  have known something that the public did not? That perhaps nobody outside of their own cartel was in on? Did they press so hard, with the best available scientific investigators in the country on their teams, because they knew there really was a killer microbe out there waiting to be found? Out of the few curious "lethal" seed-points already mentioned, like Louisville, KY and Sierra Leone, where author Barry has directed us to note a deadly-mutant probability, he notes one other place in passing that also stands out as a curiosity in his book--Switzerland.
 
The entire reference to Switzerland is on page 180, and goes thus,"On August 3 a U.S. Navy intelligence officer received a telegram that he quickly stamped SECRET and CONFIDENTIAL. Noting that his source was "reliable", he reported, 'I am confidentially advised....that the disease now epidemic throughout Switzerland is what is known as the black plague, although it is designated as Spanish sickness and grip.' ". --That's it. Not so remarkable other than being the plague, and memorable for having a "secret telegram" but curious for having been so briefly addressed and then left out of the index in the back of the book. The word "headache" got three page-references in the index and Switzerland got nothing. The index page-reference for "plague" is a bump-off to a source material... Hmm. Simon Flexner and Milton Rosenau had firsthand experience with plague in San Francisco in 1903, fifteen years earlier. Barry brings it up on page 309 but says nothing of Rosenau --other biographies do because he was chief of the N.I.H.! (4)--but he does say that somewhere in this time-frame, around July/August we guess, Simon Flexner is "coincidently away in Europe" just as the second wave of destructive fall influenza is rearing to a swell in America. Where did he go? Switzerland? Why wasn't this elaborated, this "plague that was epidemic throughout"? Switzerland was also a neutral country like Spain, which got the distinction of carrying the name of the influenza for it's many news reports in the uncensored "neutral" papers. But Switzerland has the distinction of being sandwiched right in the middle of all the combatants. Plague, flu, whatever it was, it seems like Barry would just as soon have his readers forget he ever mentioned it.
 
And so, before being led to the concluding Afterword, and its baldly propagandist spin about the coming Avian Influenza, John Barry has narrowed our mystery tour to four interesting locations where something original occurred; the ground-zero locale of Haskell County, Kansas, the anomalous and deadly Louisville, Kentucky, the suspect mutation site in Sierra Leone, and the thoroughly ignored state of Switzerland. Four places; somewhat removing the randomness of an untameable bug, and neatly divided as two places in the spring and two places in the fall. If you trace a line on a map from one to the other and back, it fundamentally encompasses the whole western war theater. Pretty neat trick for a microbe, and to strike right at the heart of the U.S. in Kansas, and again (perhaps) the Swiss heart of Europe. We're apprised in Barry's history of WWI battle preparations that the Rockeller Institute and the American Red Cross jointly sponsored railcar field laboratories in the combat zones, as gifts to the Allies. We read in other sources and from "Treason's Peace" that streams of business people and travelers continued their cross-oceanic journeys, and we're certain that doctors and specimens were part of the regular traffic. Following the natural line of logic and another unassessed war condition regarding sabotage, Barry offers this for consideration in the Afterword, "In only three verified modern instances has disease been used as a weapon. During World War II Japan spread bubonic plague in China, and Japanese scientists also infected prisoners of war with other pathogens in experiments. In 1984 in Oregon a cult infected salad bars with salmonella (no deaths, 751 became ill). And in 2001 an unknown terrorist sent anthrax through the United States mail." Left out of the review, is the strange case of Anton Dilger in 1916, but that's because Dr. Dilger has gone down in history as a failed saboteur.
 
The skinny on Dilger is that he had transformed from an all-American kid to a German loyalist after having moved there to live with relatives while still young. He received a medical education and chose to stay and serve the German army when one of his nephews was killed in action. He came back to the U.S., set up a secret basement laboratory with his brother somewhere in the vicinity of Washington, DC, and set about growing infectious organisms to spread among the stock animals (horses and cattle) destined for Allied shipment to Europe. Dilger and his cohorts did actually do-the-deed, but they were not competent enough at infecting the animals, as the story goes, and so failed in the attempt. A book by Robert Koenig entitled "The Fourth Horseman: One Man's Mission To Wage The Great War In America" tells the tale of Dilger, his henceforth reconnoitering in Mexico to goad the Mexicans into attacking the United States, ending up in Spain at precisely the right time to contract the Spanish Flu, dying there on October 17, 1918 a flu victim. Like many things not warranting mention in the The Great Influenza, speculation about Anton Dilger or the bombing of Black Tom Island never make the pages of the book. Of much more vital interests, however, Barry speaks.
 
     Flu was running  the streets of Paris and Versailles when the Peace convergence came to town in January of 1919. The Americans were quite taken down by it. Woodrow Wilson and Colonel Edward Mandell House in particular had their roles altered by illness, neither two ever being thought of again as fully recovered. House, who had anonymously authored the influential book "Philip Dru, Administrator" in 1913, and had a peculiarly uncommon access to the president throughout his administration, experienced his third bout of flu there at Versailles. House wrote in his diary,"When I fell sick in January I lost the thread of affairs and I am not sure that I have ever fully gotten back". With the terms of war negotiations at stake for all concerned, the situation in Paris in February and March was summed up by the JAMA, "the epidemic of influenza which had declined has broken out anew in a most disquieting manner...The epidemic has assumed grave proportions, not only in Paris but in several of the departments." As Wilson was nearing his final toe-to-toe rounds of  hard bargaining in April, he was so violently seized by the flu that it was suspected he'd been poisoned. A 25 year-old aide who sickened at the same time, died four days later. Wilson lived on, concluding his business from his sickbed, but he had lost his fire and much of his memory of recent events, months later suffering a severe stroke that enfeebled him. Barry informs us that the state of Wilson's health was speculated on as "Woodrow Wilson's Neurological Illness" in an article for the Journal of American History, and writes for his flu readers that,"Influenza did weaken him physically, and --precisely at the most crucial point of negotiations-- influenza did at the least drain from him stamina and the ability to concentrate. That much is certain. And it is almost certain that influenza affected his mind in other, deeper ways. Historians with virtual unanimity agree that the harshness toward Germany of the Paris peace treaty helped create the economic hardship, nationalistic reaction, and political chaos that fostered the rise of Adolph Hitler. It did not require hindsight to see the dangers. They were obvious at the time." 
 
   Colonel Edward Mandell House, who was not a military man, is reputed to have received a letter from Jacob H. Schiff at the successful initiation of the Federal Reserve banking system saying, "You have rendered your mother's people a great service". Privately, he is credited with having told Woodrow Wilson afterwards, "Very soon every American will be required to register his biological property in a national system designed to keep track of the people and that will operate under the ancient system of pledging. By such methodolgy, we can compell people to submit to our agenda...Every American will be forced to register or suffer being able to work and earn a living. They will be our chattel, and we will hold the security interest over them forever, by operation of the law merchant...They will be stripped of their rights and given a commercial value designed to make us a profit and they will be none the wiser, for not one man in a million could ever figure our plans." The original source of the latter quote is not known to this researcher, but surmised to be within the context of House's extant writings.
