For those who missed it, CBS news reported on the 21st of October, that following a 3-month long investigation they established that the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) misled the public regarding how many cases of “swine flu” there really were.
In late-July, the CDC advised US states to stop testing for H1N1 flu and the CDC stopped counting individual cases of “swine flu.” The rationale touted for this was that is was a waste of resources testing for H1N1 flu when the US government had already established that there was an epidemic. But was there really, or were they aiming to conceal the truth in order to be able to mislead the public to legitimize the H1N1 vaccine program, and hype the phoney crisis to aid in the push for a World Government?
I state the latter as it was apparent from the first live webcast from the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) on the 16th of October on “Pandemic Influenza,” that those pursuing a New World Order want to beat up the H1N1 threat to help justify the need for a one world government and vaccinations, and to state the obvious, the CDC is helping the elite with these agendas – or at least attempting to.
Akin to the elite’s phoney global warming crisis, evidence keeps piling up to show that the “H1N1 pandemic” is a mammoth hoax too.
Thankfully, CBS News has exposed the following:
1) Of the 13,704 specimens that were taken in California, only 296 (2%) tested positive for the H1N1 virus. 12% were other types of flu and a whopping 86% were negative for flu.
2) In Florida, 8852 specimens were taken and of those 1575 (17%) tested positive for H1N1 flu, while 83% were negative or another type of flu.
3) In Alaska, where 722 specimens were taken, only 11 (1%) were found to be H1N1 flu, 5% were seasonal flu and 675 (93%) were negative for flu.
4) In Georgia, where 3117 specimens were taken only 74 (2.4%) were found to be H1N1 flu.

CBS Reveals that Swine Flu Cases Seriously Overestimated
Posted by: Dr. Mercola
October 24 2009
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states on their main flu Web site http://www.cdc.gov/flu/ that flu activity is increasing in the United States, with most states reporting “widespread influenza activity.”
The CDC goes on to say, and I quote:
“So far, most flu is 2009 H1N1 flu (sometimes called “swine flu”).”
But wait stop the presses.
A three-month-long investigation by CBS News, released earlier this week that included state-by-state test results, revealed some very different facts. The CBS study found that H1N1 flu cases are NOT as prevalent as feared. A CBS article even states:
“If you’ve been diagnosed “probable” or “presumed” 2009 H1N1 or “swine flu” in recent months, you may be surprised to know this: odds are you didn’t have H1N1 flu. In fact, you probably didn’t have flu at all.“
Obviously CBS News and the CDC are completely contradicting each other. So who is right?
Well, CBS reports that in late July 2009 the CDC advised states to STOP testing for H1N1 flu, and they also stopped counting individual cases.
Their rationale for this, according to CBS News, was that it was a waste of resources to test for H1N1 flu because it was already confirmed as an epidemic.
So just like that virtually every person who visited their physician with flu-like symptoms since late July was assumed to have H1N1, with no testing necessary because, after all, there’s an epidemic.
It’s interesting to note that at the same time as the CDC decided the H1N1 epidemic warranted no further testing for cases due to its epidemic status, Finnish health authorities actually downgraded the threat of swine flu.
In late July the health ministry and the National Institute for Health and Welfare (THL) in Finland actually removed swine flu from a list of diseases considered dangerous to the public because the majority of cases recovered without medication or hospital care!
And, as the CDC continues to use fear to motivate and control Americans with their worst-case swine flu scenarios, they say nothing of the experience of those in the southern hemisphere, which just finished their flu season and found it was not as bad as expected.
CBS News Finds H1N1 Tests “Overwhelmingly Negative”
Before beginning their investigation, CBS News asked the CDC for state-by-state test results prior to their halting of testing and tracking. The CDC did not initially respond so CBS went to all 50 states directly, asking for their statistics on state lab-confirmed H1N1 prior to the halt of individual testing and counting in July.
What did they find? CBS reported:
“The results reveal a pattern that surprised a number of health care professionals we consulted. The vast majority of cases were negative for H1N1 as well as seasonal flu, despite the fact that many states were specifically testing patients deemed to be most likely to have H1N1 flu, based on symptoms and risk factors, such as travel to Mexico.”
As you can see from this CBS News graphic, not only are most cases of suspected flu-like illnesses not H1N1, they’re not even the flu but more likely some type of cold or upper respiratory infection!
