My recent correspondence with a prominent member of the liberty community on the H1N1 flu scam:

“You mentioned some H1N1 CDC statistics you had come across in December of last year.

You mentioned their claim of 12,000 H1N1 deaths in the U.S., and that is confirmed in their document here.

Then, you mentioned 0.8 per 100,000 deaths from H1N1 in the entire U.S., which would be approximately 2400 deaths, as you mentioned.

However, the only reference to that number that I came across in their documents is 0.8 per 100,000 deaths among whites who contracted H1N1, as you can see here, so if that was the statistic you saw then, their statistic of 12,000 deaths is possible.

As for those numbers, they are estimates, and the CDC says that 12,000 deaths is the midpoint between 8870 and 18,300, which is a variance of over 100%.

If the WHO’s numbers are also an estimate and have similar variance, then we could be talking as few as 8870 deaths in the U.S., and as many as 27,000 worldwide, dropping the ratio of U.S. deaths from 67% to 32%. Given that the cases emanated out of North America, specifically Mexico and the U.S. Southwest, and that the CDC reports a death rate 75% higher for Hispanics than whites, the seemingly outlandish number of 67% of all H1N1 deaths becomes less outlandish.

And as much as I don’t trust the CDC, I trust the WHO even less, given that they are further away from national and subnational control by the people, and that their founder was a eugenicist.”

Since then, I found that the WHO’s numbers are an actual count and not an estimate. They confirmed this on¬†February 24, 2010:

The global impact of the current pandemic has not yet been estimated. Typically, the numbers of deaths from seasonal influenza or past pandemics are estimated using statistical models.

By contrast, the currently reported counts of over 16,000 deaths from pandemic H1N1 represent individually tested and confirmed deaths, primarily reported from countries with adequate resources for widespread laboratory testing.

However, they make the seemingly bizarre claim that an estimate is better than an actual count:

This approach has never been used to count seasonal or previous pandemic deaths and results in a significant underestimate.

A more accurate assessment of mortality from the pandemic, using statistical models, will likely be possible in about one to two years.

Therefore, it seems reasonable to me that their latest count of around 18,000 deaths could be between 27,000 to 36,000 with their forthcoming estimate, bringing the ratio of estimated U.S. deaths to as low as 24 to 32% of all estimated deaths worldwide.

As the latest example of supranational, unaccountable global governance, The World Health Organization wants to tax your internet usage to fund vaccines.

I have my own personal experience with the WHO that has informed my view of them since the late 90s.

Then, during a doctor’s visit for an ear infection, my doctor invoked the WHO, saying they recommended against the use of antibiotics for my condition, so as to prevent bacterial resistance.

That is a very legitimate concern. However, it had already been a few days with no positive change to my near-deaf infected ear. After several days, permanent damage can result without treatment. The WHO wouldn’t have to live with hearing loss — I would.

I wouldn’t have been irked if my doctor invoked Health Canada or the CDC, which are answerable to the people through their representatives. Even before I came to came to know about the plans of United Nations organizations like UNESCO, spearheaded by eugenecist Julian Huxley, I saw it as an affront to the health freedom of myself and my doctor.

Since then, I’ve never heard another mention of WHO “recommendations” in any subsequent visit, and if I ever do, I’ll be sure to inform my doctor of the writings of the first¬†Director-General of UNESCO, Julian Huxley. In 1946, while Director-General of UNESCO, he wrote in “UNESCO: Its Purposes and Philosophy“:

It can both on its own account and in close relation with other U.N. agencies such as the F.A.O. and the World Health Organization, promote the international application of science to human welfare.

What did Huxley have in mind for the international application of science to “human welfare”? In his 1947 book, “Man in the Modern World,” Huxley, while still Director-General, wrote:

The lowest strata are reproducing too fast. Therefore… they must not have too easy access to relief or hospital treatment lest the removal of the last check on natural selection should make it too easy for children to be produced or to survive; long unemployment should be a ground for sterilisation.
