Question: Was there something criminal about the, supposedly, Air Force One photo op taking place at a time when all Americans are extremely nervous and concerned about the alleged synthetic (man made) Swine Flu?
This recent article by The Heritage Foundation seems to answer this question-You Decide:
Morning Bell: A 9/10 Security Mindset: Posted on The Heritage Foundation Website-On April 28, 2009:
These are pertinent excerpts from this article:
“Yesterday the citizens of New York and New Jersey who lived through 9/11 were witness to an ominous flashback.
Before being appointed by President Barack Obama to his current post, Caldera most recently served on the board of directors for the failed bank IndyMac, which is currently under investigation by the federal government for fraud.
This breach of common sense is all too typical of the Obama administration’s approach to national security. Just 99 days into office, Obama’s performance has already raised serious questions about his national security strategy.
Apologizer in Chief: In his first 100 days in office, President Barack Obama completed two whirlwind tours of Europe and Latin America. His message on both continents was simple: America has made many mistakes in the past, but we’re now ready to listen to others and be more flexible. It was a hugely popular message, particularly when he criticized or apologized for America. But the results were paltry.
The problem with this type of “engagement” is that, at some point, foreign leaders begin to see it (correctly) as pandering. President Obama’s apologies for U.S. policies are interpreted in North Korea, Iran and Venezuela not as an honest act of attrition that should elicit reciprocity from them, but rather as an apology demanding more concessions from the United States.
Gutting the Defense Budget: While the numbers for the FY 2010 defense budget are debatable, President Obama’s 10-year budget blueprint is crystal clear: in every year beyond FY 2010 there will be negative real growth for the defense budget.
The deep cuts will come in procurement programs for systems like the F-22 and the next generation Navy destroyer. The decisions were driven not by national security needs but by a desire to rein in Pentagon spending.
Projected Administration defense budgets over the next five years may under-fund defense spending by over a trillion dollars.
Dumbing Missile Defense Down: The President approved a cut of roughly 15 percent of the Pentagon’s missile defense budget and abandoned deploying defenses in Western Europe.
In addition, the White House failed to obtain any meaningful response from the U.N. Security Council on ballistic missile launches by Iran and North Korea.
With Pakistan teetering on the edge, the ballistic missile threat has not diminished; in fact it is growing.
The recent partial release of CIA memos was particularly unhelpful and betrays a complete lack of a coherent administration detainee strategy.
Border Blunders: Is it a crime to enter the U.S. illegally? Have terrorists routinely entered the United States through Canada, including the perpetrators of the Sept. 11 attacks? Are our veterans a threat to national security?
Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano has been an absolute disaster since she took office. She should face tough questioning from Senate Judiciary Committee next week.
There have been some bright spots for the Obama administration in national security. President Obama has largely continued to implement the strategic course laid out by the Bush Administration in Iraq and Afghanistan. But even there, the left is pressuring the White House to change course.”
Note: This recent Yahoo! News article is also somewhat confusing because it revealed that the Mexican Health Secretary, Jose Angel Cordova, late Monday said no one knows where the outbreak began, and implied it may have started in the U.S: “I think it is very risky to say, or want to say, what the point of origin or dissemination of it is, given that there had already been cases reported in southern California and Texas,” Cordova told a press conference. It’s still not clear when the first case occurred, making it impossible thus far to determine where the breakout started. Dr. Nancy Cox of the Atlanta-based Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has said she believes the earliest onset of swine flu in the U.S. was on March 28-You Decide:

Container carrying swine flu virus explodes on Swiss train: Posted on Defend Our Freedoms-On April 28, 2009:
These are pertinent excerpts from this article:
“Lausanne (Switzerland), A container for transporting swine flu virus samples exploded on a Swiss train, authorities said Tuesday, but stressed that there was no danger to the public.
The container, which was filled with dry ice and carried samples of the H1N1 swine flu virus and was destined for Switzerland’s national influenza centre in Geneva, exploded Monday night on board a train.
A laboratory employee had picked up the samples in Zurich to transport them by train to Geneva, but the package exploded near Fribourg and Lausanne, after melting dry ice, which had been wrongly placed, caused a build-up of pressure.
Two people suffered slight injuries, police confirmed, but authorities stressed there was no danger for the public as the virus was not the mutated strain, which is suspected to have caused up to 149 deaths in Mexico.
The train was halted for several hours and the 61 passengers on board the affected carriage monitored until an infection could be completely ruled out, police said.”
Note: This is another recent article that reveals that California’s Governor is now declaring a Swine Flu Emergency and its residents are alarmed by the growing number of swine flu cases and the possibility that two California men have died from the disease-You Decide:
Gov. Schwarzenegger Declares Swine Flu Emergency in California New “York City Records Large Increase in Swine Flu Cases”: Posted on ABC News-By Zone Magee, Lauren Cox, Kate Barrett and Dan Childs-On April 28, 2009:
Note: My recent blogs alerted you that there just might be another side to this swine flu outbreak, which I consider to be another extremely suspicious event because of its timing, allegedly man made (synthetic) and numerous other suspicious and unexplained occurrences that we have recently been experiencing. When you connect the dots, this issue should raise some red flags for all of us-You Decide:
Could the capital of Mexico be ground zero for an orchestrated global epidemic of a new kind of flu?
Could the swine flu be part of a United Nations’ world wide “family planning program” – a form of population control?

Fred Thompson: Obama Loosed ‘Dogs of War’ on CIA: Posted on NewsMax.Com-By Jim Meyers-On April 26, 2009:
Disclaimer: Although I share numerous resources with you, as a means of supporting my concerns, it does not necessarily mean that I support and/or agree with the contents of all of them, word-by-word, but find them thought provoking because, they provide me with other views besides my own and, thereby, help me make my case.
As a retired Marine Corps Veteran Officer (Mustang), I pride myself with loving my God, family, friends and my country. Those Military and/or Veteran Comrades, that I am honored to call friends, know that I would never intentionally say or do anything that would hurt or demean anyone, to include my God and Country.
I have always preached to my own family and follow the rule of “filtering everything that comes from my brain through my heart before it comes out of my mouth” and this rule has done me well for almost 62 years of my life and would highly recommend it to anyone that dares to share their own views with others, knowing that they may not have the same views, but are able and willing to accept that and not take it personal.
I also consider the sharing of these concerns to be given me under our “FREEDOM OF SPEECH RIGHTS”, which I consider as one of the corner stones of our “Constitution’s 1st Amendment,” and, as an American Citizen, I believe that it is my “God Given Duty” to stand up for and defend this or any other rights given me under our Constitution, as other God and Country loving Americans in uniform have done in the past and continue to this date.
Oath Keepers: Orders We Will Not Obey:
Note: As a military Veteran, I’ve always prided myself as being intelligent, level headed and normally don’t listen to conspiracies, but my gut tells me that something reeks.
Bottom Line: If my concerns, which I hope and pray are unfounded, are in time proven to be true:
“God Bless & Keep Our United States of America Safe”
“Food For Thought”
