Today's AYFKM? Award: While The US Declares A Public Health Emergency, The President Golfs

This would be Today’s AYFKM? Award going to the Usurper-In-Charge who just loves to hate America!

Did anyone here think that he would actually be paying attention to the country during a time of crisis? I know I am a sick puppy after the last 2 years of dealing with Bambi, because I cannot stop laughing!

From the AP:

US declares public health emergency for swine flu

WASHINGTON – The U.S. declared a public health emergency Sunday to deal with the emerging new swine flu, much like the government does to prepare for approaching hurricanes.

Officials reported 20 U.S. cases of swine flu in five states so far, with the latest in Ohio and New York. Unlike in Mexico where the same strain appears to be killing dozens of people, cases in the United State have been mild — and U.S. health authorities can’t yet explain why.

“As we continue to look for cases, we are going to see a broader spectrum of disease,” predicted Dr. Richard Besser, acting chief of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. “We’re going to see more severe disease in this country.”

At a White House news conference, Besser and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano sought to assure Americans that health officials are taking all appropriate steps to minimize the impact of the outbreak.

Meanwhile, Bush III is golfing:

Obama gets in a round of golf on a sunny morning

ANDREWS AIR FORCE BASE, Md. – President Barack Obama took advantage of the summer conditions in Washington on Sunday to play a round of golf for the first time since taking office.

His motorcade left the White House at midmorning Sunday for the course at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland.

Obama arrived at the course wearing sunglasses, a cream-colored baseball cap, short-sleeved shirt and khaki shorts. He shook hands with a few other golfers and waved to other onlookers before stepping into a golf cart driven by the course’s general manager, Mike Thomas.

Joining the president were Commerce Secretary Gary Locke, U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk and presidential aide Marvin Nicholson.

The Courses at Andrews Air Force Base is a popular destination for presidents because of its proximity to the White House and the security it offers on a military base. Presidents George W. Bush, Bill Clinton and George H.W. Bush all played there.

Americans told to wear masks as swine flu spreads round globe

Doctors in America are advising worried patients to buy painters’ masks as a precaution against the global outbreak of swine flu that appears to have spread from Mexico to the United States, New Zealand and possibly Europe.

With the worldwide death toll standing at about 81 and with about 1,300 people infected, authorities across the globe are torn between the desire to slow down a potential flu pandemic and the need to avoid bringing major cities on every continent to an economic standstill.

As of today, the US was still allowing people to cross the border from Mexico – where it is thought the swine flu emerged last week – although customs officials at the San Ysidro and Otay Mesa border crossings were given protective masks. It is thought that eight people in US border towns have gone down with swine flu, and tonight Mayor Michael Bloomberg said that a further eight cases have been confirmed among students in New York.

At least the doctors are dispensing common sense.

Now pay attention folks, you are going to see that our government does not give a flying super secret squirrel’s tail about us after reading the following two articles which includes updates of which countries are reporting cases and what those same countries are doing about it.  The second article is what Janet “Napoleon” has to say about our preparedness.

Swine flu fears prompt quarantine plans, pork bans

GENEVA – Canada became the third country to confirm human cases of swine flu Sunday as global health officials considered whether to raise the global pandemic alert level.

Nations from New Zealand to Spain also reported suspected cases and some warned citizens against travel to North America while others planned quarantines, tightened rules on pork imports and tested airline passengers for fevers.

Nova Scotia’s chief public health officer, Dr. Robert Strang, said the east coast Canadian province had confirmed four “very mild” cases of swine flu in students ranging in age from 12 to 17 or 18. All are recovering, he said.

“It was acquired in Mexico, brought home and spread,” Strang said.

The western province of British Columbia confirmed two further cases.

The news follows the World Health Organization‘s decision Saturday to declare the outbreak first detected in Mexico and the United States a “public health emergency of international concern.”

A senior World Health Organization official said the agency’s emergency committee will meet for a second time Tuesday to examine the extent to which the virus has spread before deciding whether to increase the pandemic alert beyond phase 3.

The same strain of the A/H1N1 swine flu virus has been detected in several locations in Mexico and the United States, and it appears to be spreading directly from human to human, said Keiji Fukuda, WHO’s assistant director-general in charge of health security.

Mexico’s health minister says the disease has killed up to 86 people and likely sickened up to 1,400 since April 13. U.S. officials say the virus has been found in New York, California, Texas, Kansas and Ohio, but so far no fatalities have been reported.

Governments including China, Russia and Taiwan began planning to put anyone with symptoms of the deadly virus under quarantine

Others were increasing their screening of pigs and pork imports from the Americas or banning them outright despite health officials’ reassurances that it was safe to eat thoroughly cooked pork.

Some nations issued travel warnings for Mexico and the United States.

WHO’s emergency committee is still trying to determine exactly how the virus has spread, Fukuda said

“Right now we have cases occurring in a couple of different countries and in multiple locations,” he said. “But we also know that in the modern world that cases can simply move around from single locations and not really become established.”

Raising the pandemic alert phase could entail issuing specific recommendations to countries on how to halt the disease. So far, WHO has only urged governments to step up their surveillance of suspicious outbreaks.

WHO Director-General Margaret Chan called the outbreak a public health emergency of “pandemic potential” because the virus can pass from human to human.

Her agency was considering whether to issue nonbinding recommendations on travel and trade restrictions, and even border closures. It is up to governments to decide whether to follow the advice.

“Countries are encouraged to do anything that they feel would be a precautionary measure,” WHO spokeswoman Aphaluck Bhatiasevi said. “All countries need to enhance their monitoring.”

New Zealand said that 10 students who took a school trip to Mexico “likely” had swine flu. Israel said a man who had recently visited Mexico had been hospitalized while authorities try to determine whether he had the disease. French Health Ministry officials investigated four possible cases of swine flu, but three were later found to be negative.

Spanish authorities said a total of seven suspected cases were under observation.

Hong Kong and Taiwan said visitors who came back from flu-affected areas with fevers would be quarantined. China said anyone experiencing flu-like symptoms within two weeks of arrival from an affected area had to report to authorities. A Russian health agency said any passenger from North America running a fever would be quarantined until the cause of the fever is determined.

Tokyo’s Narita airport installed a device to test the temperatures of passengers arriving from Mexico.

Indonesia increased surveillance at all entry points for travelers with flu-like symptoms — using devices at airports that were put in place years ago to monitor for severe acute respiratory syndrome, or SARS, and bird flu. It said it was ready to quarantine suspected victims if necessary.

Hong Kong and South Korea warned against travel to the Mexican capital and three affected provinces. Italy, Poland and Venezuela also advised their citizens to postpone travel to affected areas of Mexico and the United States.

Symptoms of the flu-like illness include a fever of more than 100 degrees Fahrenheit (37.8 degrees Celsius), body aches, coughing, a sore throat, respiratory congestion and, in some cases, vomiting and diarrhea.

The virus is usually contracted through direct contact with pigs, but Joseph Domenech, chief of animal health service at U.N. Food and Agriculture Agency in Rome, said all indications were that the virus is being spread through human-to-human transmission.

No vaccine specifically protects against swine flu, and it is unclear how much protection current human flu vaccines might offer.

Russia banned the import of meat products from Mexico, California, Texas and Kansas. South Korea said it would increase the number of its influenza virus checks on pork products from Mexico and the U.S.

And what is Janet “Himmler” Napolitano doing?

US says not testing travelers from Mexico for flu

WASHINGTON, April 26 (Reuters) – The United States is not testing airplane travelers from Mexico for the swine flu virus that has heightened fears of a possible pandemic, U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said on Sunday.

“Right now we don’t think the facts warrant more active testing or screening of passengers coming in from Mexico,” she said at a White House briefing.

And lastly, here is a recent statement from the World Health Organization.

Swine Flu Could Become More Dangerous

The swine flu virus that has killed more than 80 people in Mexico may mutate into a “more dangerous” strain, the World Health Organisation has warned.

“It’s quite possible for this virus to evolve… when viruses evolve, clearly they can become more dangerous to people,” said Keiji Fukuda, of the global health watchdog.

Mr Fukuda also called for international vigilance as health experts wait to see whether the virus will turn into a worldwide pandemic.

Sky US correspondent Greg Milam said: “It’s important to realise that those affected have only had mild symptoms, and all have recovered or are recovering.

“But the authorities do believe that this outbreak will get worse.”

Elsewhere around the world, suspected cases have been reported in France, Spain, Israel, New Zealand and the UK.

In France, two people who had returned from Mexico with fevers are being monitored in regions near the port cities of Bordeaux and Marseille.

A 26-year-old Israeli man has also been admitted to hospital after returning from a trip to Mexico with flu-like symptoms.

In New Zealand, a group of school children have tested positive for influenza after returning from Mexico.

In the UK, two people have been admitted to a hospital in Scotland after returning from Mexico on April 21.

They are said to have mild flu-like symptoms but their condition is not causing concern.

Mexican City Mayor Marcelo Ebrard said two more people have died of the virus, taking the death toll to 83.

All schools have been shut in Mexico City, the surrounding area and the central state of San Luis Potosi until May 6.

The WHO says it has a stockpile of the antiviral Tamiflu, which has proven effective against the virus, and is preparing a vaccine if needed.

The H1N1 strain of swine flu is usually only seen in pigs – but in humans can cause symptoms including fever and fatigue.

There is “zero evidence” that people are getting infected with the virus from exposure to pigmeat or pigs, the WHO said.

So there you have it folks.  The rest of world is trying to shut this virus down, meanwhile the usurper-in-charge is golfing and his himmler is not taking any extra precautions to make sure people are safe.

The first 100 days, holy bejesus!  Can we impeach this asshat and the rest of his crew yet?  I am frakkin’ sick to death of all of them!

    WIth any luck someone in Napoleon’s family will get it. Then watch her swoop into action. We are fucked as usual. What a fucking surprise.

    Anyone with a fucking brain would shut the border and end all travel to and from Mexico. American nationals in Mexico should be brought home and quarantined. Anyone returning to the United States, and anyone they have had contact with since the outbreak should be quarantined. It’s very fucking simple Janet you stupid fucking worthless piece of shit.

    DO SOMETHING YOU DOUCHEBAG!!!

  2. Shtuey says:

    Here’s a very interesting report regarding Mexico and the 1918 flu. Strong immune responses killed the 1918 flu victims. We will need to study the victims of the flu, but it may be true again.

    http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=103495140

  3. They are all complacent because of Tamiflu – but what if it morphs again and Tamiflu doesn’t work at all…dangerous game they are playing.

  4. I don’t think it’s a game, Diamond. More like a plan. There is something stronger than Tamiflu available to TBTB; they are not stupid (just arrogant).

  5. lee M. says:

    Why am I not surprised? Obambi playing golf while the flu sneaks across our borders. All Ms Napoleon’s “there are no illegal immigrants” welcome. Is this the first step in reducing the population of the world so that the Powers That Be can walk in and take over what is left? Their plan stipulates that there must be a reduction in the world’s population for there to be a perfect New World Order.

    I’ll bet Obambi and Co. have all already been innoculated against the flu and there will be ample supplies on hand for him and his cohorts and family. He doesn’t seem to be too worried.

    As you say, while other world leaders are planning their fight against the probable epidemic, his onliness is playing golf.

    I’m inclined to agree with Grail. TPTB are not worried because they have a plan.

  6. Ladies and Gentlemen: Plan or no plan, please remember the “God” factor. The best laid plans…etc., etc., etc. I think God is on our side. Walk in the light, live in the light…

  7. Leaping Spark says:

    Looks like the Mexican government has given us a virus to go along with the 30 million parasites they sent swarming across our border. Is anyone surprised that as per usual our government is going to do nothing about this latest scourge from south of the border. Looks like a crisis is looming in our future, and we all know how Obama and his lap dog Rahm feel about that, another excuse to to defraud and subjugate the American people.

    The flu is a dangerous epidemic no doubt about it, but the greatest danger to America is a Communistic Muslim cancer named Baraka Hussien Obama, he has spread quickly to the leftist, the Socialist, the black militants, the Muslims, and the illiterate. He is a modern day plague that has settled over America and there is no cure, 2010 will be too late because we will all be infected with the yoke of Communism and Islam. Nuff said.

  8. Kathy says:

    Diamond- thank you for the reference to “God” there are times when only divine intervention is the answer.

  9. Mary Ellen says:

    My mouth just dropped while watching that news conference with Janet “Napolean” yesterday. When she said she felt the facts didn’t warrant testing or screening of passengers coming in from Mexico, I wanted scream! What the hell is WRONG with that woman???? She reminds of of George Bush, playing his guitar and eating cake while thousands of Louisiana citizens were drowning. She’s clueless, just like her boss, just like George Bush.

    This is all coming from Mexico, but she doesn’t want to hurt the feelings of Mexicans by not allowing them to bring their freakin’ germs to the United States. The only thing I could hope for is for her and Obama to come down with a screaming case of this flu. Of course, they will have the anti-viral drug at their disposal, not like the rest of us peons who can’t get it. Did you hear that only the DOD will have access to the anti-viral drug (for now). Ugh…I hate these people, they don’t give a rats ass about the rest of us.

  10. hey guys (Shtuey too!)…

    cross posted you on justsaynodeal.com and hireheels.com

    been busy with ‘paying clients’ (no, not thru craigslist LOL)… doing my best to keep my friends posted!!

    Hope you’re all great …

    cheers Diamond Tiger!

  11. Donnie Roberts says:

    Diamond read all you post and enjoy them.
    I think that this flu is man made and just one of the ways to kill off the american people and if this doesn’t work they’ll find another way.
    They the NWO will try anything to get us under their control. The government doesn’t care about the people and the people need to take action to get them out of office before it’s to later and they get to strong

  12. truthisgold says:

    Diamond, would that this posfraud@$$h@t WAS impeachable. You see, BECAUSE he is NOT a legitimate POtuS, he is not subject to impeachment. He has to be removed, arrested, and frog marched off that golf course and into the pokey for, among other things, perjury, fraud and violation of the Constitution. To put it mildly.

    As always, you all make excellent points above, and, most importantly, underline the fact that we are on to this bunch of moronic psychopaths. As I posted in Diamond’s ‘Shout Out’ thread, like begets like, and so, as Obozo maintains an ever growing cadre of homicidal morons, we grow increasingly larger, our ranks filled with the brave, the sentient and the patriotic. Every time I write a post or a comment, visit LM, PD, ACCDF, MsPlaced, Mary Ellen, InsightAnalytical, GG, Shtuey, Princess, my beloved co host drkate, TD, an so many others presently not here to defend themselves, my heart and my faith grow stronger in the knowledge that between God and the indomitable spirit that guides and bringis us all together, we WILL prevail for the good of the country. Why? Because not one of us is even the least bit concerned with ego, self aggrandizement or personal issues. We are united as one giant machine of higher vibrations, and we mean business. We are out to save our world.

    Kudos, h/t’s and deepest thanks to you all.

    The “Criminal-in-Charge” and his fellow criminals,(Pelosi,Reid,Biden Et al) need to be arrested and dealt with like they did with Musolini and his girl friend during WWII. I’m still clinging to my Bible and guns!!

  14. earlywatcher says:

    I’m sure they’ll call him if they need him. After all, that worked during the campaign/economic meltdown.

  15. pjr says:

    The “powers that be” CANNOT afford any demonstrations, marches, etc, that allow the light of “truth” to be shown on their evil. Therefore, “black flag” events alluded to by V. P. Biden, such as this “swine” flu, will be perpetrated on the nation and the resulting implementation of FEMA/HLS controlled responses (complete with MANDATORY antidotes that contain who knows what) that prohibit the free movement of the population, including martial law, will be implimented.

    So much for demonstrations, peaceful or otherwise. “Never let a good crisis go to waste” is their mantra; they have only just begun the “crisises” that they intend to “finish” the job of dismantling America with. Please see “Lame Cherry: Apr 25, 2009” article titled, “Possum Obama”, where the partially hidden motto on the presidential seal (behind the blasphemous “sacred geometry” backed “crucified B.O.”) is translated as “The god of the star we see performing the fragmentation of the nation”. It’s his every intention to disMEMBER this nation before we can stop him.

    Federal laws already exist to issue mandatory innoculations and quarantine (in events like these), to be implemented by FEMA, with the help of HLS. Divide and conquer. If we refuse to be innoculated, we will be arrested and forcibly injected (with, again, who knows what) while being incarcerated, again, who knows where. They don’t dare being reprimanded by their handlers with the phrase, “Waste a crisis, want a crisis”. As if they don’t have many more to pick from. As they are demonstrating, their evil knows “no bounds”. (see below article:)
    Criminal Charges Over the ‘Swine Flu’ To Be Filed in Austria On Monday >> Four Winds 10 – fourwinds10.com :

    “Dear Dr Margaret Chan,

    I am sending this email to inform you that I intend to file criminal charges on Monday Aril 27th against you as well as other employees in the WHO and allied organisations, for your role in exposing the populations of the world to the risk of a pandemic virus that could kill billions of people using laws to fight international racketeering influenced organised crime as well as the UN convention for the prevention and punishment of genocide. …”

  16. lee M. says:

    Diamond, your reference could also bring to mind that great Scots Poet, Robert Burns, in his poem “To A Mouse”

    After disturbing a mouse’s winter home with his plough, he lamented:

    But Mousie, thou art no thy lane (you are not alone)
    In proving foresight may be vain:
    The best laid schemes o’ mice an’ men
    Gang aft agley (go often astray)
    An’ lea’e us naught but grief an’ pain
    For promised joy.

    Still thou art blest compar’d wi’ me!
    The present only toucheth thee:
    But och! I backward cast my e’e
    On prospects drear!
    An’ forward tho’ I canna see,
    I guess and fear.

    Although many have tried to figure out just what Burns meant in his many poems, few have agreed exactly.

    In this one, a seven stanza poem, these last two stanzas have been adapted to many situations. Some say he meant that a human being’s construction of a political system or a war plan was never perfect and could come to grief.

    One example often given is Napoleon at Waterloo.

    Let’s hope that with the help of a divine being these evil people behind this scheme will come to grief.

    Thanks Diamond, for reminding us.

  17. Mary Ellen says:

    How about this for a conspiracy theory (Ok, I’m bored and have nothing else to do today)… which states in the US will be affected the most? Those that didn’t vote for Obama in the primary? Inquiring minds want to know. 😉

    I wouldn’t put it past him, really.

  18. I’m guessing the ones with the loosest gun control laws and the so-called “Red” states.

  19. Mary Ellen says:

    Janet did it again. During another news conference she was asked why she is not calling to close the border to keep people coming into the United States from Mexico (as other countries are doing) and she said that the United States doesn’t have enough flu cases to warrant this. The reporter then said, “Well, what about those who will get in that may not be showing the signs or symptoms of the flu virus yet, but will after they get here?” And she said that when the cases increase then she will “think” about closing the border.

    Honestly, this is just so Katrina all over again!

    This is crazy.

    In the meantime…Obama’s golf game went uninterrupted. All is well in OBamaland. Sheesh.

  20. 4:22 pm 4/27/09: The WHO is about to raise the pandemic level to 4 – which is sustained human to human contact. Thanks Janet – you frakkin’ tool!

  21. Okay – the CDC is talking out of both sides of their mouths again. “People need to be prepared for deaths”, and “there is no reason to stop travel from the EU to America” – WTF? The CDC gets today’s ayfkm? award!

    EVERYBODY needs to quarantine themselves in their freakin’ houses!

  22. Kathy says:

    You know what is really sad, is that all the mall brats probably do not have any idea what is going on. There are still people out there that do not have a clue.

    My husband went to the dr. with flu like symptoms, our idea of international travel is leaving the county. The dr. ask him if he had been to Mexico, which I guess it is good the dr. asked. When I shared this story with a neighbor they looked at me like they did not have any idea what I was talking about, and they did not.

    It turned out my husband had a cold that had turned into bronchitis. Put on antibiotics and well be fine.

    It is not that it is not on the news there are just people who never watch anything, that is scary.

  23. Kathy,
    Those would be the sheeple with their heads down grazing away while they are being surrounded by a very hungry wolf pack.

    Meanwhile, we are up on the ledge watching it happen and thinking “those asshats are going to get us ALL killed.”

  24. Mary Ellen says:

    I’ve heard so many contradictions on the news that I don’t think one hand knows what the other is doing. Janet seems so far out of her league that she makes “Brownie” of the Bush administration look like Einstein. First I hear that this flu isn’t that bad and then I hear that it will go away quickly but will return with a vengeance in the fall. Then I hear that they are going to start putting together a vaccination, and after that they say that the vaccinations they used during the pandemic in the 70’s did more harm than good, even paralyzing some people.

    For now…I’m just going to do the best I can to stay healthy, but I can’t lock myself away. I have doc appointments for my bad knee and physical therapy sessions to go to. I just keep telling my son who is away at college to make sure he washes his hands a lot. I can’t tell if he’s taking me seriously or not. He’ll be out of school in less than two weeks…the sooner the better. The dorms are just a petri dish of germs.

  25. David Gagin says:

    1> I think this is just another in a long list of false flag events.
    2> Create a Crisis–>show bold action to contain crisis (easy when you know how it really happened)–>declare another national emergency to keep the constitution and our rights suspended–>prepare for the next “emergency/crisis”.
    3> Fake out like you’re trying to help Mexico by sending the UN orks in to dismember the country, but swine flu continues, even if mother nature would have eradicated it by herself-hmmmm…now there’s an idea!
    4> have the flu “spread” into USA; send large batches of people you didn’t want around anyway into close quarters so it spreads like wild fire…those unoccupied installations that FEMA denies will do nicely for this. Arrange for press to video burials.
    5> arrange to “arrest” those terrorist truckers who’ve been stockpiling biologics, and get big whoopdee do on CNN.
    6> Build more detention centers…they will be needed. Repeat with step 2

  26. Mary Ellen – get a painter’s mask and don’t believe a frakkin’ thing the gov. says.

  27. Better yet – what ever they say, do the opposite.

  28. Off topic…but as we all focus on the flu, look what the IMF and World Bank did over the weekend at their spring meetings….and, if you don’t believe we’re becoming a 3rd World country, then why is the “banker for the poor” doing business here in the US????

    PS–you’ll love the Indian Money Goddess courtesy American Lassie, too…

  30. David Gagin says:

    Hey all,
    I’m sure you’ve heard how this manufactured epidemic has exploded! I have seen reports that are saying it was weapons grade strain of flu, a strain never before seen from natural souces. If not a natural source then where? They’re saying these were produced in a lab because it’s made of more than one strain. Well, what lab? or Labs. Not only that, but that the effects are far worse than MSM and/or gov’t is letting on, and hospitals are being over-run. And what was the purpose? You know already; I don’t have to say so. NWO is doomed to fail unless something is done about all the people. There’s too many. 9.5 or 10Billion people are too many to govern by a one-world government, there’s too many variables! NWO will fall flat on its ASS with all that. So-o-o-o. Hmmm. Ever hear the saying, “The world would be a wonderful place, if wasn’t for all the people”?
