There have been some noteworthy articles in the news recently relating to the swine flu. I am going to pass them on to the readers of the Parables Blog. First, however, I am going to share a testimony that was added as a comment to an earlier post titled Preparing the Ark.
Dear Brother in Christ,
It was encouraging for me to read how the Lord has led you to prepare for the judgment and destruction of America. For He has led us in the exact same manner.
Six months ago the Lord directed us to by a 30 Ft. RV. It is an older one and was in good condition, needing a few repairs. He instructed me to name it The Ark.
He also has instructed us to by solar panels for our batteries and much food, mostly rice and beans.
Many would say we should just trust the Lord and not prepare in the natural, but the Lord has said different to us.
I have asked the Lord many times if we should prepare an escape route. But His response to this is to trust Him when the time comes.
So though He is preparing us, physically and spiritually, He is still demanding we walk in faith as far as when and where we will go when the time comes.
We preached the gospel for over 15 years going through many trials along the way. Being rejected by our family, friends and the church. We have given up all the world says we shouldn’t for Jesus. Yet in the mist of it all, He has been faithful and has upheld us.
For the past 4 years, He has purged us of every selfish desire and, completely separated us from the church and the world. I pray everyday that our faith will not fail in the days ahead.
Six years ago my daughter and I had a visitation from the Lord in which for three days His glory was upon us. He showed us the glory that would be upon those in the very last of days. How He would literally consume those who would give everything to Him, and the power of God that would rest on them, as it did on Him as He walked the earth. It was so glorious. He said it was a taste of what we would walk in and that though Judgment would be upon the earth, many would be saved by these He has set apart for His use in these days of tribulation.
Yet at the same time He told us it would come with a cost, and asked me if I was willing to pay that cost. I said yes. From that day forward we have been hated by men, and highly favored of God. He has blessed us and yet the world has cursed us.
He has intructed us to wait upon Him. He has showed us the things to come. He has told us He is with us and no matter what comes He will protect us and use us to help others. We have been isolated for 4 years now. It has been hard, but we trust Jesus knows exactly what He is doing. He has promised to tell us what He is doing before He does it, and He has kept that promise.
Know my brother that the Lord is preparing others as He has you. That though the remnant is scattered, we are one by His spirit. I pray our faith will not fail, and that He will be glorified even in the darkness that is coming upon the earth even now.
In His Love-Cheryl

National Guard drill at high school to prepare for possible H1N1 riot
By Leslie H. Dixon, Staff Writer
Published: Aug 13, 2009 1:46 am
PARIS — Oxford Hills Comprehensive High School will be the site of a National Guard riot control drill Thursday morning to prepare in the event of a panic over distribution of serum to treat the swine flu.
The school on Route 26 at the Paris-Norway town line has been designated by state officials as a distribution site for the H1N1 flu vaccine. The drill is to prepare for a worst-case scenario should the serum have to be transported from Augusta and people rush to get it.
On Thursday morning, four or five National Guard Humvees will travel from Augusta to Paris with vials of fake serum. The National Guardsmen will take on the roles of panicked citizens and military police and practice what they would do, such as using tear gas, in the case of a riot…
During the April conference, concerns were raised about a possible out-of-control rush on the serum, Parker said. Because of that concern, Gov. John Baldacci and Gen. John Libby, adjutant general of the Maine National Guard, agreed that a plan should be devised to quell such a disturbance…
Commentary: As things stand now, the effects of the swine flu have been much milder than the normal flu. The symptoms are generally mild, and very few of those affected have died. Those few who have died have had pre-existing conditions that compromised their health. The above article concludes by saying that Maine has recently experienced their FIRST death from the Swine Flu. This would hardly justify the pandemic label that has been attached to it, or the tremendous government and media hype.
One can hardly imagine parents and citizens rushing to a school in a mass frenzy to get themselves and their children vaccinated. It seems just as probable that the National Guard will be called upon to quell the uproar when parents rush to the school to prevent their children from having to take a MANDATORY flu shot that has been improperly tested and verified.
(Some are suggesting that the government is preparing to release a much more severe strain of virus upon the populace, similar to the 1918 Spanish Flu epidemic that killed 100 million worldwide and 680,000 in the U.S.. If so, this could account for a rush to acquire the government proffered vaccine.)
During the last Swine Flu scare (that never materialized) back during the Presidency of Gerald Ford, it has been documented that 25 people died, and over 500 developed Guillain Barre Syndrome, a very serious neurological disorder. The cause of the outbreak of GBS has been attributed to Squalene, and adjuvant added to the vaccine to make it more effective.
During this earlier government Swine Flu program, people received only one shot. The news shows have been reporting that it will require three shots this year to properly vaccinate people. One shot will be for the normal flu. One will be for the Swine flu. This will be followed by an additional booster shot for the Swine Flu.
Receiving three shots will triple the amount of mercury, squalene, MF59, AS03, and other poisons injected into the bodies of children and the general population. This three-fold increase will logically result in a great increase in detrimental health effects. Dr. Russell Blaylock shares the following information in a Newsmax article.
Vaccine May Be More Dangerous Than Swine Flu
Tuesday, July 7, 2009 9:54 AM
By: Dr. Russell Blaylock
An outbreak of swine flu occurred in Mexico this spring that eventually affected 4,910 Mexican citizens and resulted in 85 deaths. By the time it spread to the United States, the virus caused only mild cases of flu-like illness.
Thanks to air travel and the failure of public health officials to control travel from Mexico, the virus spread worldwide. Despite predictions of massive numbers of deaths and the arrival of doomsday, the virus has remained a relatively mild disease, something we know happens each year with flu epidemics.
Worldwide, there have only been 311 deaths out of 70,893 cases of swine flu. In the United States, 27,717 cases have resulted in 127 deaths. Every death is a tragedy, but such a low death rate should not be the basis of a draconian government policy.
It is helpful to recall that the Centers for Disease Control with the collusion of the media, constantly tell us that 36,000 people die from the flu each year, a figure that has been shown to be a lie. In this case, we are talking about 300 plus deaths for the entire world…
Naturally, vaccine manufacturers have been in a competitive battle to produce the first vaccine. The main contenders have been Baxter Pharmaceuticals and Novartis Pharmaceuticals, the latter of which recently acquired the scandal-ridden Chiron vaccine company. Both of these companies have had agreements with the World Health Organization to produce a pandemic vaccine.
The Baxter vaccine, called Celvapan, has had fast track approval. It uses a new vero cell technology, which utilizes cultured cells from the African green monkey. This same animal tissue transmits a number of vaccine-contaminating viruses, including the HIV virus.
The Baxter company has been associated with two deadly scandals. The first event occurred in 2006 when hemophiliac components were contaminated with HIV virus and injected in tens of thousands of people, including thousands of children. Baxter continued to release the HIV contaminated vaccine even after the contamination was known.
The second event occurred recently when it was discovered that Baxter had released a seasonal flu vaccine containing the bird flu virus, which would have produced a real world pandemic, to 18 countries. Fortunately, astute lab workers in the Czech Republic discovered the deadly combination and blew the whistle before a worldwide disaster was unleashed.
Despite these two deadly events, WHO maintains an agreement with Baxter Pharmaceuticals to produce the world’s pandemic vaccine.
Novartis, the second contender, also has an agreement with WHO for a pandemic vaccine. Novartis appears to have won the contract, since their vaccine is near completion. What is terrifying is that these pandemic vaccines contain ingredients, called immune adjuvants that a number of studies have shown cause devastating autoimmune disorders, including rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis and lupus.
Animal studies using this adjuvant have found them to be deadly. A study using 14 guinea pigs found that when they were injected with the special adjuvant, only one animal survived. A repeat of the study found the same deadly outcome.
So, what is this deadly ingredient? It is called squalene, a type of oil. The Chiron company, maker of the deadly anthrax vaccine, makes an adjuvant called MF-59 which contains… squalene…
The MF-59 adjuvant has been used in several vaccines. These vaccines, including tetanus and diphtheria, are the same vaccines frequently associated with adverse reactions.
I reviewed a number of studies on this adjuvant and found something quite interesting. Several studies done on human test subjects found MF-59 to be a very safe immune adjuvant. But when I checked to see who did these studies, I found—to no surprise—that they were done by the Novartis Pharmaceutical Company and Chiron Pharmaceutical Company, which have merged. They were all published in “prestigious” medical journals. Also, to no surprise, a great number of studies done by independent laboratories and research institutions all found a strong link between MF-59 and autoimmune diseases.
Squalene in vaccines has been strongly linked to the Gulf War Syndrome. On August 1991, Anthony Principi, Secretary of Veterans Affairs admitted that soldiers vaccinated with the anthrax vaccine from 1990 to 1991 had an increased risk of 200 percent in developing the deadly disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also called Lou Gehrig’s disease. The soldiers also suffered from a number of debilitating and life-shortening diseases, such as polyarteritis nodosa, multiple sclerosis (MS), lupus, transverse myelitis (a neurological disorder caused by inflammation of the spinal cord), endocarditis (inflammation of the heart’s inner lining), optic neuritis with blindness and glomerulonephritis (a type of kidney disease).
Because squalene, the main ingredient in MF-59, can induce hyperimmune responses and induce autoimmunity, a real danger exists for prolonged activation of the brain’s immune cells, the microglia. This type of prolonged activation has been strongly associated with such diseases as multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, ALS and possibly vaccine-related encephalitis. It has been shown that activation of the systemic immune system, as occurs with vaccination, rapidly activates the brain’s microglia at the same time, and this brain inflammation can persist for long periods.
What most people do not know, even the doctors who recommend the vaccines, is that most studies by pharmaceutical companies observe the patients for only one to two weeks following vaccination—these types of reactions may take months or even years to manifest…
One must keep in mind that once the vaccine is injected, there is little you can do to protect yourself—at least by conventional medicine. It will mean a lifetime of crippling illness and early death.

If s single shot of Anthrax vaccine given to Gulf War veterans resulted in widespread injury to the health of the soldiers, what will happen when children receive three shots containing this chemical? The body’s immune system will be seriously compromised and will be left susceptible to any opportunistic infection that comes along.
There is an agenda being worked out behind the scenes. High level politicians are beginning to comment on it. A recent article by Paul Joseph Watson stated the following:
Government Will Hype Fall Swine Flu Outbreak To Save Obamacare, Warns Armey
Paul Joseph Watson
Monday, August 17, 2009
Former Congressman and House Majority Leader Dick Armey warns that the government is planning to exploit a hyped swine flu outbreak this fall in order to reinvigorate support behind its failing Obamacare agenda.
Armey is confident that the grass roots backlash against Obamacare will cause the plan to fail, but warns that the government has one last trick up its sleeve which it is preparing to pull in the next few months.
The former House leader told the Financial Times that wavering lawmakers in both parties might be won over by an engineered crisis that the Obama administration is planning to exploit.
“In September or October there will be a hyped up outbreak of the swine flu which they’ll say is as bad as the bubonic plague to scare the bed-wetters to vote for healthcare reform,” said Mr Armey. “That is the only way they can push something on to the American people that the American people don’t want.”
As we reported last week, Georgia Congressman Paul Broun gave a similar warning when he told attendees of a town hall event Tuesday that the Obama administration was planning to use a pandemic or a natural disaster to implement martial law in the United States.
Speaking at the North Georgia Technical College auditorium, Broun said that the “socialistic elite,” as well as Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, were planning to exploit a crisis to create a favorable climate for their stalling political agenda.
“They’re trying to develop an environment where they can take over,” he said. “We’ve seen that historically.”
Health authorities as well as Homeland Security chief Janet Napolitano have been hyping the inevitability of swine flu’s deadlier return this fall ever since it first appeared in April…
A further news article of note is found in The Progressive magazine. The article comments on the government’s push to station nearly 400,000 troops on U.S. soil, and to give the Department of Defense control of the all individual states National Guard units in an emergency. This is certainly an action the government would take if it were concerned that states would resist its policies in the event of an emergency.
The Pentagon Wants Authority to Post Almost 400,000 Military Personnel in U.S.
By Matthew Rothschild, August 12, 2009
The Pentagon has approached Congress to grant the Secretary of Defense the authority to post almost 400,000 military personnel throughout the United States in times of emergency or a major disaster.
This request has already occasioned a dispute with the nation’s governors. And it raises the prospect of U.S. military personnel patrolling the streets of the United States, in conflict with the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878…
The governors were not happy about this proposal, since they want to maintain control of their own National Guard forces, as well as military personnel acting in a domestic capacity in their states…
Belk said the legislative change is necessary in the aftermath of a “catastrophic natural disaster, not beyond that,” and she referred to Katrina, among other events.
But NorthCom’s Congressional fact sheet refers not just to a “major disaster” but also to “emergencies.” And it says, “Those terms are defined in section 5122 of title 42, U.S. Code.”
That section gives the President the sole discretion to designate an event as an “emergency” or a “major disaster.” Both are “in the determination of the President” alone…
The new proposed legislation would greatly expand the President’s power to call up the Reserves in a disaster or an emergency and would extend that power to the Secretary of Defense…
The ACLU is alarmed by the proposed legislation. Mike German, the ACLU’s national security policy counsel, expressed amazement “that the military would propose such a broad set of authorities and potentially undermine a 100-year-old prohibition against the military in domestic law enforcement with no public debate and seemingly little understanding of the threat to democracy.”
Taken individually, any of these news items would be cause for serious concern about what is transpiring. Viewed together it becomes evident that there is a sinister agenda being worked out, and the results will be greatly deleterious for the citizens of America. Add to this the fact that many of these vaccines will be developed from a cell line derived from an aborted baby, and there is every reason in the world to choose to opt out, even if the government declares the shots to be mandatory.
This leads us back to the National Guard practicing riot control drills at a local school. One should question the real reason that people might be upset. I will end this post with links to the following two videos taken from a recent Glenn Beck show. Please watch them and consider whether these things could truly happen here in America that once occurred in Nazi Germany.
