None Dare Call it a Coincidence: Andy Stern and the White House Biodefense Program
Big Government ^ | Jul 10th 2010 | LaborUnionReport

There are many who argue that President Obama has (repeatedly) broken his promise to bring transparency and openness to the White House. In literal terms, however, Obama may not have actually broken that specific promise ,.. it’s just that people may not have understood what Obama meant by transparency and openness.

..Here’s a case in point:

First Dot:
Several months ago, the union world was shocked when Andy Stern, the ignominious president of the Service Employees International Union abruptly “quit” as leader of the Purple Hand. Surprise and speculation swelled. Was it the Blago Trial? Is he sick?

Second Dot:
Then, in late June, a really curious thing happened. Andy, after years of excoriating capitalism and attacking corporations did the unthinkable…he joined the board of directors of a (*gasp*) corporation!

SIGA Technologies, Inc, a company specializing in the development of pharmaceutical agents to combat bio-warfare pathogens, announced today that Andy Stern, labor leader and prominent advocate for reform, joined SIGA’s board of directors. Mr. Stern is the former president of Service Employees International Union (SEIU)

Third Dot:
On Friday, July 2nd, as America was beginning what was, for most, a three-day weekend, the White House released an Executive Order which has, as yet, not been mentioned by the mainstream media. Interestingly, this wasn’t just your average Executive Order. This EO spells out America’s policy toward Biological Select Agents and Toxins (BSATs).

Executive Order–Optimizing the Security of Biological Select Agents and Toxins in the United States

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, it is hereby ordered as follows:

(a) A robust and productive scientific enterprise that utilizes biological select agents and toxins (BSAT) is essential to national security;

Don’t panic over Dengue.

the two biggest barriers to a outbreak are Airconditioning and Window Screens.

Generaly it is only fatal when an outbreak overwhelms the Medical Facilities (third world) in a weak population.

Most Americans who catch it think it’s a bad cold or flue and get better without medical treatment.

Worth reading.
Now it makes sense why andy stern left the seiu.
Unleashing a biological would cause one hell of a crisis.

This reminds me of a book by Tom Clancy, Rainbow Six.

Not trying to be an alarmist. Andy Stern seemed to have a big ego, wants to be an inside player. The executive order on top of his move seems suspect.

Thanks for info, not panicked.

Guess I am becoming very skeptical of this administration. Hope it is not exploited for a money scheme. (I sound like your screen name_)
