The Pandemic Is Political:

Swine flu and the World Health Organization's agenda.

As evidence continues to mount that swine flu is more of a piglet than
a raging razorback, why isn't curiosity mounting as to why the World
Health Organization declared it a pandemic? And definitions aside, why
does the agency continue to insist we're going to get hammered? The
answers have far less to do with world health than with redistribution
of world wealth.

Medically, the pandemic moniker is unjustifiable. When the sacrosanct
World Health Organization (WHO) made its official declaration in June,
we were 11 weeks into the outbreak, and swine flu had only killed 144
people worldwide--the same number who die of seasonal flu worldwide
every few hours. The mildest pandemics of the 20th century killed at
least a million people worldwide. And even after six months, swine flu
has killed about as many people as the seasonal flu does every six

So how could WHO make such an outrageous claim?

Simple. It rewrote the definition of "pandemic."
