The CDC is lying to you again: flu reality vs. flu fiction

by Jon Rappoport

June 20, 2013

I now have the official CDC flu-death statistics for the year 2010.

They were provided to me by Martin Maloney, who, some years ago, contacted me to show how the CDC was lying all the way along the line about numbers of flu deaths. Many thanks, Martin, for your good work.

2010 is apparently the most recent year for which the CDC has issued a final report. It was released on May 13 of this year.

The report comes through a sub-agency of the CDC, the National Vital Statistics System (NVSS).

On page 89 of the report, “Deaths: Final Data for 2010,” in Table 10, we find the following:

Influenza and Pneumonia [deaths]: 50,097.

Influenza [deaths]: 500.

Pneumonia [deaths]: 49,597.

In 2010, the CDC reports 500 deaths from the flu.

But the CDC PR people have trumpeted, over and over, that 36,000 people die every year in the US from the flu.

They’ve hyped this number, to emphasize how dangerous the flu is. They use the 36,000 number as a way to promote the flu vaccine. They use it to work for their pimps in the pharmaceutical industy.

Yet, their own numbers show 500 deaths in 2010, not 36,000.

Actually, if you dig below the surface of their PR, the CDC states in their literature that annual deaths from the flu range from about 3000 to 49,000.

This is obviously nowhere near the low 500-death figure for 2010.

And it isn’t only 2010 that’s at issue. In a recent article, I laid out how the CDC routinely reports, in the fine print, far fewer than 3000 flu deaths in a given year.

Exit From the Matrix

It gets even worse. When you break down that low figure of flu deaths per year in the US, you find that only a small fraction of those have been confirmed as the flu.

By confirmed, I mean tested for, in order to find a flu virus in the body of a person who has subsequently died. That is essential.

So for example, for the year 2001, the CDC, in its small print, listed 257 flu deaths. But of those, only 18 were confirmed to be the flu.

As you can see above, the CDC has a mortality category called “Pneumonia plus Influenza.” They initially lump the numbers of deaths together. This gives the superficial impression of many deaths. Then, they break it down.

How do they justify that combination-category? They claim that many pneumonia deaths stem from the flu. They use a computer model to make the calculations.

But in conventional medical literature, there are at least 10 different types of pneumonia. Trying to model which ones stem from flu cases is a fool’s errand.

The CDC is lying about about flu-deaths. Again.

They’re trying, as usual, to inflate danger and promote it and sell vaccine. That’s their real job. Our job is to protect ourselves and others from the government.

    You might note that the Bayh-Dole Act allows CDC employees to directly profit from royalties from patents on government funded research. Individual employees are listed on patents for tests and vaccines and I understand can make up to $150,000/year in royalty income. Hence the need for new diseases, new tests, and new vaccines.

    The purpose of the Bayh-Dole Act to encourage research has backfired. The CDC is now implementing policies for their private weath instead of public health.

    This is the way are economy is now structured to work. The oldest and most powerful men from all industries lobby to get federal agencies to give preferential treatment to their corporations. Whether it be in the energy, agriculture, financial, or medical/pharmaceutical sector it still plays out the same, regulatory agencies view the highest contributing corporations as pertinent to the economy and are thus protected from competition. These corporations can make any claim about their industry or product and our regulatory agencies will back their stance without research or investigation.
    As long as money is going to be allowed to infiltrate our administrations this will be how business gets done across the board.

    500 people probably die from the flu vaccine every year.

    My husband works in healthcare and had to wear a mask all flu season last year because he refused a flu vaccine (due to a previous violent reaction to the flu vax coupled with his father’s permanent disability from Guillian Barre syndrome). He is looking at another flu season of the same thing, that is until he can get out of the industry altogether. His situation prompted me to do quite a bit of research on the subject and I ended up writing an article for a blogger friend ( Few things make me as crazy as the flu vaccine scam that is being forced upon healthcare workers and others. Unfortunately, the more you learn, the less credibility the whole conventional healthcare system has. Any industry that would turn on its own like heatlhcare has is one to very seriously question! We often use the analogy of “taking the red pill” from The Matrix, so it was kind of funny to see the Matrix reference here!
