This is an excerpt from Allen McDuffee’s report on the Huffington Post blog, titled “Blackout: Military Personnel banned from H1N1 Vaccine Sites“:
“If you want to draw attention to a problem, try hiding it. That’s the strategy of several military bases when it comes to the H1N1 vaccine.
Shortly after the Pentagon announced that all Armed Services personnel would soon be facing a mandatory H1N1 vaccination program, I started receiving email from soldiers, airmen, marines and sailors because of a previous story I had written on the anthrax vaccine. Mandatory vaccine programs are a sensitive subject in the military, so it’s not a huge surprise that swift and visceral reactions to the program gained speed.
With a vaccine that was so new and little known about it, like many Americans, troops were heading to the web to find answers to their very legitimate questions — not only for themselves, but for their families who have the option of receiving the vaccine on base. What they found instead is that several websites and blogs with key information asking critical questions had been blocked from their viewing.
Among those that were repeatedly mentioned as blocked sites are the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC), the site for Gary Matsumoto’s book Vaccine-A, and vaccine expert Dr. Meryl Nass. NVIC is a national, non-profit founded in 1980s that, through public education, advocates “vaccine safety and informed consent protections in the mass vaccination system.” Matsumoto’s site contains a forum in which thousands upon thousands of service members have posted testimonies regarding their experiences with the anthrax vaccine. And Nass is one of the world’s foremost experts on vaccines who has testified in front of Congressional committees — and, I might add, never has had a malpractice suit brought against her.
The Center for Disease Control (CDC), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) sites, however, are all available for military personnel. The official word from governmental agencies is welcome but critics, regardless of whether they were considered experts, are not.
According to the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Public Affairs, the only blocking of websites Pentagon-wide was in 2007, when a number of heavy-trafficked sites that “used lots of bandwidth” had to be denied to reduce the wear on networks “to ensure they continued to be available for mission requirements.”
That turns out not to be entirely accurate.
Some of you may recall the reporting earlier this year when wired.com’s Danger Room blog reported that the Pentagon was blocking not only YouTube, but even their own TroopTube.

Maybe this is the reason: Pentagon Planning Deployment of Troops in Support of Nationwide Vaccination
“Militarization of public health in the case of emergency is now official
by Michel Chossudovsky
According to CNN, the Pentagon is “to establish regional teams of military personnel to assist civilian authorities in the event of a significant outbreak of the H1N1 virus this fall, according to Defense Department officials.”
“The proposal is awaiting final approval from Defense Secretary Robert Gates.
The officials would not be identified because the proposal from U.S. Northern Command’s Gen. Victor Renuart has not been approved by the secretary.
The plan calls for military task forces to work in conjunction with the Federal Emergency Management Agency. There is no final decision on how the military effort would be manned, but one source said it would likely include personnel from all branches of the military.
It has yet to be determined how many troops would be needed and whether they would come from the active duty or the National Guard and Reserve forces.
Civilian authorities would lead any relief efforts in the event of a major outbreak, the official said. The military, as they would for a natural disaster or other significant emergency situation, could provide support and fulfill any tasks that civilian authorities could not, such as air transport or testing of large numbers of viral samples from infected patients.
As a first step, Gates is being asked to sign a so-called “execution order” that would authorize the military to begin to conduct the detailed planning to execute the proposed plan.
Orders to deploy actual forces would be reviewed later, depending on how much of a health threat the flu poses this fall, the officials said.” (CNN, Military planning for possible H1N1 outbreak, July 2009, emphasis added)
The implications are far-reaching….”

“About a week ago, I gave a very brief fifteen minute speech to the striking students in the Audi Max in the University of Vienna on the swine flu jab, the legal framework that allows forced vaccination and quarantine and martial law, also in Austria, the artificially engineered financial crisis and the totalitarian and militaristic elements of the EU s Lisbon Treaty, and how it impacted on them directly.
My brief talk was well received and when I left, a couple of students caught up with me and asked me for my name etc, said they had found the information was important for them and asked me to come back and give a longer talk to other students. I agreed.
There is an open mic policy but when student Gilbert Kreillinger rang me and offered to fix an hour for me in the programme I accepted.
Little did I suspect that while I have, in the meantime, been on mainstream TV in Poland and Greece, and have just recorded another programme for the mainstream TV in Croatia, I am considered too radical to talk to striking students in Austria.
An anonymous group of students that appears to have got control of the organisational committee that selects speakers for the students has now informed me my talk has been cancelled and is just a disruption and distraction. No names given to the emails.
In the meantime, I have seen myself, the extent to which alternative media organisations, non governmental organisations such as Attac and also student organisations have been infiltrated by agents working for the secret services and/or international criminal corporate crime syndicate.
The Habsburg emperor, it seems, had two buttons on his desk: one to summon the head of the secret police and other to summon the head of the police.
Has anything changed in Austria except that the CIA/banking crime syndicate now pull the strings?
The former mayor of Vienna, Helmut Zilk, is reported to have been a CIA agent as was Otto Schulmeister, the editor in chiefl of one of Austria s main newspapers, Die Presse. There is strong eveidence to suggest his sucessors were too
Worried by the scale of the student protests that have emerged, Chancellor Werner Faymann — who attended the Bilderberg meeting this year together with Novartis chief Daniel Vasella, David Rockefeller and Ex Swedish Prime Minister Carl Bildt who floated the idea of the WHO becoming a global health organisation — and his friends in the big pharma and banking crime syndicate will not be sitting back idly.
Wouldn’t it make sense to mobilise whatever assets to undermine the current student protest movement and stop the recent student drive for a referendum on the education system?
They might even be worried by my talk. Who knows what the personal and financial links to banks and big pharma of the anonymous people are who have now intervened to stop my talk on the grounds that it is too disruptive?….”
