    "Less than 1% of schoolchildren have obtained medical exemptions in California, after their doctor determined that their risk of vaccine injury exceeds the benefit of a vaccine(s)—but there are only a small number of physicians who are skilled at meeting this public healthcare need. “If SB 276 passes, the California families who need them most will no longer be able to effectively access the doctors who are best able to protect them from vaccine injuries-”Dr. Shira Miller PIC

    Quote Physicians for Informed Consent Sends Letter to Medical Board of California Regarding Science and SB 276 (Limiting Medical Exemptions to Vaccination)
    Doctors Ask Directors of Medical Board to Investigate Scientific Data and Oppose Any Legislation That Limits the Ability of Physicians to Issue Medical Exemptions
    July 9, 2019

    Newport Beach, CA – Today, Physicians for Informed Consent (PIC) sent a letter to the Medical Board of California on behalf of hundreds of its doctor and scientist members out of concern that some legislators, without robust scientific justification, are singling out medical doctors who recommend medical exemptions to vaccination and labeling them as “fraudulent.”

    The letter explains how the data currently available shows that increasing vaccination rates or limiting medical exemptions will not eliminate measles outbreaks. “…about half of all California schoolchildren, who are fully vaccinated with the MMR vaccine, can still be infected with and spread measles, irrespective of the medical exemption rate,” wrote Dr. Shira Miller, founder and president of PIC.

    In the United Kingdom, the chickenpox vaccine is not routinely recommended because chickenpox is considered a mild illness in healthy children and vaccination is thought to increase the risk of herpes zoster in adults—that doesn’t mean British doctors are “fraudulent.” In Denmark, the hepatitis B vaccine is not routinely recommended—that doesn’t mean that Danish doctors are “fraudulent.” And in nearly all U.S. states there is either a personal belief or religious exemption to vaccination for school attendance, so doctors in those states don’t need to recommend medical exemptions for children to attend school if their vaccine recommendations are not in sync with the average doctor’s recommendations—those doctors are not “fraudulent” and neither are California doctors who, due to current law, are obligated to put their medical opinion regarding vaccination in writing, for the purpose of school attendance.

    July 9, 2019

    Medical Board of California
    2005 Evergreen Street, Suite 1200
    Sacramento, CA 95815

    RE: Science and SB 276 (limiting medical exemptions to vaccination)

    Dear Directors of the Medical Board of California,

    It is important that the Medical Board of California (MBC) explore the scientific basis and medical legitimacy of laws like SB 276,[1] as they directly impact the health and safety of millions of healthcare consumers in California. On behalf of hundreds of doctor and scientist members of Physicians for Informed Consent, I am writing out of our concern that some legislators, without robust scientific justification, are singling out medical doctors who recommend medical exemptions to vaccination and labeling them as “fraudulent.”[2]

    The data currently available shows that increasing vaccination rates or limiting medical exemptions will not eliminate measles outbreaks. For example, in 2007, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) conducted a study on waning immunity after two doses of measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine.[3] The results, published in Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, showed that:

    About 35% of vaccinated 7-year-olds are susceptible to subclinical measles.
    About 60% of vaccinated 15-year-olds are susceptible to subclinical measles.
    By age 24–26, a projected 33% of vaccinated adults are susceptible to clinical measles.
    This means that about half of all California schoolchildren, who are fully vaccinated with the MMR vaccine, can still be infected with and spread measles, irrespective of the medical exemption rate.[4],[5],[6]

    The CDC conducted another study in 2016, published in The Journal of Infectious Diseases, which concluded that a third dose (booster shot) of the MMR vaccine is short-lived, lasts only one year, and would not solve the problem of waning immunity.[7]

    In addition, there are other infectious diseases where a child’s vaccination status does not significantly affect the safety of other students at school.[8]

    Tetanus is not contagious, so being vaccinated for it or not doesn’t prevent others from getting it.[9]
    Hepatitis B is spread through sex and intravenous drug use in the United States, so being vaccinated for it or not doesn’t prevent others from getting it in schools.[10]
    The whooping cough vaccine doesn’t prevent the spread of whooping cough, so being vaccinated for it or not doesn’t prevent one from spreading whooping cough or others from getting it.[11]
    The diphtheria vaccine does not prevent the spread of diphtheria, so being vaccinated for it or not doesn’t prevent one from spreading diphtheria or others from getting it.[12]
    The polio vaccine used in the United States does not prevent the spread of polio, so being vaccinated for it or not doesn’t prevent one from spreading polio or others from getting it.[13],[14]
    It’s also important to measure the threat of infectious diseases. For example, before the measles vaccine was introduced in 1963 there was a 1 in 10,000 (0.01%) chance of dying from measles[15] (that’s about the same as one’s lifetime chance of being struck by lightning). In addition, three treatments are available for rare severe complications from measles: vitamin A, immune globulin, and the antiviral medication, ribavirin.[16],[17],[18],[19]

    By comparison, the chance of a child dying in his or her first year of life (the infant mortality rate) is currently 1 in 170[20] in the U.S. overall (0.6%)—which is 60 times greater than the risk of a child dying from measles in 1962, a time period when almost every child had measles by age 15 and 99.99% fully recovered.[21]

    Infant mortality rate (IMR) is a recognized major indicator of the health of a population, not the number of measles cases nor the number of medical exemptions.[22] West Virginia and Mississippi, which only allow state public health officers to approve medical exemptions to vaccination (like SB 276 would do) have about double the infant mortality rate of California. And Massachusetts and Washington have a lower infant mortality than California, even while allowing non-medical exemptions.[23] This means that laws limiting medical exemptions are unlikely to improve public health—and may worsen it.

    Additionally, it’s important to remember that since the enactment of the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986,[24] which has shielded both vaccine manufacturers and physicians from vaccine injury lawsuits, the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program has awarded over $4 billion to families who incurred vaccine injuries and deaths.[25] These families are our canaries in a coal mine, and the physicians that care for them have a heightened awareness of their risk of vaccine injury and how to prevent further harm. For example, the risk of seizure after the MMR vaccine occurs in about 1 in 50 children with a history of seizures, and 1 in 250 in siblings of children with a history of febrile seizures (and 5% of those would develop epilepsy).[26],[27] The average doctor is not yet familiar with these research findings (even though they were published 15 years ago) and wouldn’t consider recommending a medical exemption to vaccination on such a basis—but there are many doctors experienced in this arena who are knowledgeable and adept in protecting such families.

    Finally, in the United Kingdom, the chickenpox vaccine is not routinely recommended because chickenpox is considered a mild illness in healthy children and vaccination is thought to increase the risk of herpes zoster in adults—that doesn’t mean British doctors are “fraudulent.”[28] In Denmark, the hepatitis B vaccine is not routinely recommended—that doesn’t mean that Danish doctors are “fraudulent.”[29] And in nearly all U.S. states there is either a personal belief or religious exemption to vaccination for school attendance, so doctors in those states don’t need to recommend medical exemptions for children to attend school if their vaccine recommendations are not in sync with the average doctor’s recommendations—those doctors are not “fraudulent” and neither are California doctors who, due to current law, are obligated to put their medical opinion regarding vaccination in writing, for the purpose of school attendance.[30]

    Will each of you, as a director of the MBC, investigate the scientific data for yourself? Or will you rely only on the interpretations of these data given to you by others? As scientific truths are verifiable, and the health of California’s children is at stake, we urge you to be sure of your decision.

    We request that you oppose any legislation that limits the ability of physicians to issue medical exemptions to vaccination.

    People are waking up to the truth. The media is even stating "fully vaccinated" measle cases.

    Quote I got measles? But I got vaccinated. Oh hell.
    July 15, 2019

    The “theory” of herd immunity does not apply to a vaccinated population. It was conceived based on observations of measles outbreaks in non-vaccinated populations in the United States during the 1930s and how those communities, as a whole, were protected from becoming infected after about 55% (or slightly more) of the people came down with the disease and developed “natural immunity” to it.

    There can be no such thing as herd immunity in vaccinated populations because vaccines do not confer immunity. You know, the kind that lasts a lifetime. The real immunity. Not this temporary stuff that requires people to keep getting these silly “booster shots” forever and ever. And even then they never achieve immunity, just a lot of shots.

    Amazingly, in some measles outbreaks, 20 to 40 percent of the people infected had been fully vaccinated with two doses of the MMR vaccine. Don’t believe me? Check out the study by Gregory A. Poland, MD and Robert M. Jacobson, MD titled “The Re-Emergence of Measles in Developed Countries: Time to Develop the Next-Generation Measles Vaccines?” published in the journal Vaccine on January 5, 2012. They call it “primary vaccine failure.” Nice.

    Even worse, though, is the fact that in the current measles outbreak in the US, for example, some, if not many, of the children who have been diagnosed with measles actually got the measles virus from the MMR vaccine itself. They call it “vaccine strain” measles and, unless you test everyone who has come down with measles, there is no way to know for sure how many of those cases are vaccine strain measles and how many are “wild-type” measles.

    They’re not testing widely. There is no mass surveillance system of this kind in place, So it is possible, even likely, that a large percentage of the measles cases being reported have occurred as a direct result of MMR vaccinations. I suspect no one at the CDC is too keen on knowing how many of cases of vaccine strain measles there are out there. Imagine the kind of damper that would put on their efforts to encourage people to get vaccinated and get their kids vaccinated.

    So, not only do people who have been vaccinated with the MMR vaccine not provide herd immunity for the population as whole, they have actually placed themselves at risk for contracting measles by the very thing they believed was going to protect them. One hell of a bubble I just burst for you, huh?
    Quote Seattle Children’s nurse diagnosed with measles
    POSTED 2:27 PM, JULY 15, 2019 SEATTLE --

    Another person was diagnosed with measles in King County, county officials said Monday. This comes less than a week after a teen and a young child were reported with the disease.

    Seattle Children's Hospital says the patient was one of its nurses who was working with a child who had contracted measles. They say she was fully vaccinated and was wearing protective equipment but still contracted the disease anyway.

    The hospital says "We are in the process of notifying patients, families and staff who may have been exposed, providing information about exposure dates, disease symptoms and offering preventative treatment if necessary. "

    This brings the total number of cases in the county in just a few months to 10.

    Mike Adams states his views on the end game. The consequences of complete legal immunity of the vaccine manufacturers and the shut down of speech concerning vaccine safety achieves a dangerous precedent. Now anything could be added to vaccines and no one could sue them and no one would be allowed to talk about it.

    Quote ALERT for humanity: The “perfect storm” for a vaccine HOLOCAUST is now here
    Thursday, July 18, 2019 by: Mike Adams

    (Natural News) The Holocaust of history saw the coordinated, government-run murder of six million Jews, capping off one of the most horrifying chapters of human history. Yet another holocaust is being repeated right now by the vaccine industry, also run by fascist government much like the Third Reich. Except this holocaust’s impact goes far beyond six million people; it involves the maiming, injury and deaths of hundreds of millions of people around the world, spanning at least three decades.

    Just like Adolf Hitler criminalized anyone criticizing his authoritarian regime, the vaccine deep state in America — led by the criminal CDC — has achieved the coordinated censorship of all criticism of vaccines across every tech platform of today: Google, Facebook, YouTube, Vimeo, Twitter and others. All channels containing content or videos that dare point out the government-admitted statistics of children being killed by vaccines — quarterly stats are readily available via VAERS.HHS.gov — are systematically de-platformed and censored.

    At the same time, the vaccine industry continues to enjoy a “special deal” of legal immunity, thanks to the corrupt U.S. government and its complicity with the pharma cartels. No person harmed by a vaccine on the childhood immunization schedule can sue the manufacturer of that faulty product. This means vaccine manufacturers have zero motivation for quality control and can technically put literally any chemical they want into vaccines… including chemicals that cause autism, neurological damage and death.

    These two factors — the coordinated censorship of all whistleblowers and the “special deal” legal immunity for vaccine manufacturers — add up to a perfect storm for a global vaccine holocaust that can never be stopped, since no whistleblowers are allowed to be heard.

    Vaccine pushers have become crazed, cult-like fanatics
    Defenders of the scientific static quo claim that science is “self correcting.” But there can be no self correction when no voices of dissent are allowed to be heard. Vaccines have become a cult-like “faith” matter across the scientific community, where total belief in vaccines is required at all times, or you will be fired from your job, stripped of your medical license, isolated from research funding, denounced by the medical establishment and censored by the tech giants. No dissent is allowed to be voiced, which means vaccines aren’t “scientific” at all. They represent an absolutist, cult-like fanaticism that smacks of deep intellectual corruption, not rational thought.

    No one is allowed to criticize vaccines. No whistleblowers are covered in the media. No investigative findings can be shared on social media. The cover-up is now complete, and the vaccine industry answers to no one, but hopes to violate everyone.

    Mass death has now descended upon us, and it’s all being carried out in the name of “science.”

    "Prior to 2013, fewer than 1,000 elderly Americans died from the flu in all but one year. But in the most recent five years available, the average jumped to over 3,000 per year, exceeding 5,000 in the most recent year (2017). The 2013-2017 flu death rate among Americans over 65 jumped 328.6%, or more than four times than it was in the period 2006-2012.

    The influenza death rate did not change among Americans age under 35, while it rose 132.4% (more than doubled) among those age 35-64."

    Quote Soaring Elderly Flu Death: What Role Did the Stronger New Flu Vaccine Play?
    July 19, 2019
    by Health Impact News Staff

    Flu shots have been offered to Americans for years. A major target from drug companies who make vaccines and physicians who administer them has been the elderly, who are more likely to develop the flu due to their declining health.

    In addition, Medicare covers the cost of flu shots, making them more accessible to seniors.

    On December 23, 2009, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved use of Fluzone High-Dose flu vaccine for the elderly. This new product is four times more powerful, that is, it contains four times the amount of flu virus antigen per dose as the product used previously (Fluzone). The vaccine is given as a single injection.

    FDA approval was given even though its Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices made no indication it was better than the previously-used Fluzone after reviewing studies of safety and effectiveness. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention stated,

    “Data demonstrating greater protection against influenza illness after vaccination with Fluzone High-Dose are needed to evaluate whether Fluzone High-Dose is a more effective vaccine for patients age > 65 years.”

    The largest study reviewed by the FDA committee showed that the new high-dose vaccine had a 50% higher rate of side effects within the first week after the injection, and four times the chance that patients would develop fever after the shot.

    The approval was given even though a large three-year study of effectiveness and safety had just begun (U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2010).

    Almost immediately after FDA approval, questions were raised about serious side effects of the more potent new vaccine.

    One of the first skeptics of Fluzone High-Dose was Dr. Joseph Mercola, who presented evidence that it increases side effects.

    He referred to the manufacturer’s safety study that found a higher rate of serious adverse effects among elderly taking the high-dose flu shot (7.4%) than those who took the earlier flu shot (6.1%). The package insert lists these severe conditions (see Appendix).

    In addition, Mercola cited a series of five recent analyses, called Cochrane reviews, on effects of the flu vaccine.

    Each Cochrane review is not a single study but consists of multiple studies on the same topic.

    One Cochrane review concluded there was no strong evidence that flu shots improved the health of the elderly, making higher-dose vaccinations a greater threat for a product that doesn’t work (Mercola, 2011):

    “The available evidence is of poor quality and provides no guidance regarding the safety, efficacy or effectiveness of influenza vaccines for people aged 65 years or older.”

    A 2012 article in Consumer Reports reported on whether the magazine’s panel of medical advisors advocate using high-dose Fluzone for the elderly, instead of the less potent vaccination.

    The response was that the more potent Fluzone was NOT advised at any time, until proof of greater effectiveness was developed (Mitchell, 2012).

    “Initially we hoped this high-dose vaccine might particularly help seniors who are very ill or have compromised immune systems, but given the lack of clinical trial data, and that there is a risk of making sick people even sicker, our medical consultants don’t advise it for anyone at this time. Until more is known about how protective the high-dose shot is for all seniors, the regular flu vaccine remains the best option.”

    Also in 2012, a Scientific American article cast doubt on whether the new, strengthened flu vaccine could protect the elderly.

    It cited a 2006 journal article by the Group Health Research Institute in Seattle that showed vaccinated seniors were 44% less likely to die than unvaccinated seniors were during flu season, but 61% less likely to die before flu season even started.

    This raises the question of whether healthier elderly people are more likely to elect to have a flu shot.

    Furthermore, the fact that vaccinated elderly persons are 61% less likely to die from flu in the non-flu season (compared to just 44% less during flu season) raises the possibility that taking the vaccine may worsen an elderly person’s chance of surviving flu season (Moyer, 2012).

    A study of nearly 32,000 nursing home patients showed that fewer elderly persons taking the high-dose flu shot developed the flu than did those taking standard doses (1.4% vs. 1.9%).

    Those in the high-dose group also had a lower rate of serious side effects (8.3% vs. 9.0%). All six persons who died within 30 days of taking the vaccine were given high doses, but authors believe that these deaths had nothing to do with the flu shots (DiazGranados, 2014).

    After FDA approval of the high-dose flu shot for the elderly, use of the new vaccine began slowly. In the period 2010-2012, the first three years after approval, just 18.4% of elderly Americans receiving flu shots received the high-dose version (McGrath, 2015). The numbers of 25% and 32% in 2011 and 2012 likely means a much larger percent in years after.

    One important way to test for any effect that High-Dose Fluzone had on elderly Americans is to review death rates in the periods before and after it was introduced. The CDC maintains a database of all deaths of U.S. residents; in mid-2019, the database covered all years from 1968-2017.

    Table 1 is a comparison of influenza deaths for the periods 2006-2012, when less than 10% of elderly Americans vaccinated for the flu had High-Dose Fluzone, and 2013-2017, when a much larger (but unknown) percent of those vaccinated were given High-Dose Fluzone (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2019).

    Prior to 2013, fewer than 1,000 elderly Americans died from the flu in all but one year. But in the most recent five years available, the average jumped to over 3,000 per year, exceeding 5,000 in the most recent year (2017). The 2013-2017 flu death rate among Americans over 65 jumped 328.6%, or more than four times than it was in the period 2006-2012.

    The influenza death rate did not change among Americans age under 35, while it rose 132.4% (more than doubled) among those age 35-64.

    Additional information may be pertinent to this unusual trend:

    Large increases in elderly flu death rates occurred among all major racial and ethnic groups (white, black, Hispanic, and Asian).
    Large increases occurred for both elderly males and females.
    Increases occurred for elderly in all but two small states (Delaware and Nevada). The highest increase was reported in Oregon, where the 2013-2017 rate was nine times greater than earlier.
    Possible causes for this increase, each of which do not explain the recent trend, are listed:

    “The flu was stronger” in the past five years. False. Younger age groups were not affected, and other periods of high flu deaths (1968-1969, 1980-1981, and 2006-2007) affected all age groups, not just the elderly.
    “It’s a coding change” starting in 2013. False. No such federal rules affecting coding of flu deaths were issued.
    “The elderly had to die of something.” False. The death rate for all causes among U.S. elderly declined 5% from 2006-2012 to 2013-2017, compared to the 328.6% rise for the flu.
    “Fewer people were immunized.” False. Roughly 40% of Americans over six months receive the (recommended) flu vaccine annually, a number that does not vary much year by year.
    “Not that many people were affected.” False. The total number of flu deaths among U.S. elderly in the past five years (16,613) is large, and trends are statistically significant.
    One suggestion that greater use of High-Dose Fluzone is associated with this large jump is by comparing elderly flu death rates for 2006-2010 (when it was not used), and in 2011-2012 (when it was used in 25% – 32% of elderly receiving flu shots). The rate increased 24%, from 1.542 to 1.912 deaths per million persons, during this time. Presumably, the proportion of elderly flu shots using High-Dose Fluzone rose after 2012, as the flu death rate from soared to 6.977.

    Some experts participating in the dialogue on vaccine safety contend that flu shots cannot give someone the flu, or cause anything more than minor side effects.

    In 1986, federal legislation enacted the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, giving families of immunized children a means of compensation for the harm caused by vaccines, while absolving drug companies from any fault.

    A total of 6,358 claims have been compensated at a total of $4 billion. Two-thirds of these claims involved flu vaccines (Health Resources and Services Administration, 2019).

    The new High-Dose Fluzone is made of inactivated influenza virus, and thus cannot “give” vaccinated persons any of the three types of flu virus that the product protects against. But types of flu are difficult to predict before the season starts, as manufacturers prepare millions of doses of vaccine, and flu shots in a given year often do not protect against the actual strain or strains (Janjua, 2010).

    When a flu shot is given, the antigens it contains generate antibodies against disease. These antibodies are “fighters” the body uses against multiple diseases, even though it protects only against the types of flu it is made to prevent.

    Antibody attacks could reduce the body’s immune system strength, which is already lowered in elderly persons. Thus, a flu shot four times more powerful than the one it replaced could, theoretically, cause higher rates of disease (Angelantoni, 2017).

    The recent mortality rise in elderly flu deaths should be taken seriously, and future trends should be monitored by health officials. More studies are needed comparing rates of flu deaths among those who have been vaccinated with High-Dose Fluzone, vaccinated with normal dose Fluzone, those immunized using flu mist, and those who are not vaccinated, to better explore ways to provide maximum safety for elderly persons.

    Default Re: The US Vaccine issue is more than just about "the Shots", it is about totalitarian tiptoe

    Almost no one I know thinks Big Pharma is a benevolent and protective force for human health. However, most people with whom I speak still turn towards allopathic medicine. They still feel shocked when a medication has terrible side effects or when conditions escalate. Almost EVERY person I know who is vaccine informed started because a person in their life who is important (self included) had unmistakable signs of a vaccination related problem.

    Severe disappointment and harm make people loathe to trust what we are being told. When we investigate and discover the lies we have been told and hear them repeated with a straight face as if we are stupid, blind and deaf, we get angry. That makes us anti- establishment.

    People REALLY turn away from the system when an opportunity arises at the end of all help from traditional sources. An alternative works. When our seemingly hopeless cases are seen to be amenable to healing, we will invest our confidence in skillful means. That will make us advocates for real medicine.

    Quote Analysis – The GOOD And The BAD of Today’s “Anti-Vax” Movement…
    Despite Well Funded Constant Assaults By Big Pharma, And Their Sleazy Minions, The Worldwide “Anti-Vax” Movement Gets Smarter, Tougher, And Stronger – And Far More Knowledgeable, And Sophisticated, EVERY Day...
    Opinion by “Deplorable” Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

    There are ONLY three viewpoints about the Vaccine Programs on Planet Earth…

    (1) The huge, and ever growing, “Anti-Vax” Movement – is made up of people who think about things and make up their minds about issues based on facts and reality. They are people who have done their homework. They are people who look their Pediatrician, or their politician, in the eye and say “YOU are beginning to piss me off, buster…” They sound, and act, like angry Americans.

    (2) The “Pro-Vax” Mercenaries – Those who’s very financial existence depends upon them promoting the great vaccine lie: like Pediatricians, “Public Health” workers, and “Astro-Turf” organizations.

    These are people that connect themselves to the “Progressive” wing of the Democratic Party. They are very often government employees who have no morality what-so-ever. They are almost never family members. Few, if any, have children of their own. Secular Humanism will be their guidance mechanism. Several of their leaders have recently been connected to child pornography. Some of those are people who get government, or Big Pharma Grants, to argue the pro-vax position.

    (3) The biggest group – Normal, non-involved people who mistakenly believe that their government, their “Public Health,” and their scientific/academic community have their best interests at heart.

    These are the people who, almost suddenly, become part of the “Anti-Vax” Community after their beloved child gets a nine vaccine combo from their white-coated-Mercedes-driving Pediatrician. Their beloved child turns into a screaming, high-fevered, clearly suffering, defenseless little one who will, from that pediatric moment on, need constant 24 hour-per-day care.

    It is a simple situation…
    It is the classic battle between Good and Evil.

    What Has Changed To Make The “Anti-Vax” Movement So Powerful?

    It was one simple thing – a change in “positioning.” Prior to the passing of SB 277 in California (Mandatory Vaccines for children) the movement that was then called “Autism,“ had the attitude that they should plead their case POLITELY to the very people that were causing the problem to start with. “Autism” leadership, at the time, BLOCKED anyone from pointing out that vaccines were dangerous. Their agreed upon “positioning” was:

    “We know that vaccines are safe and effective (sniff, sniff), but we just want personal choice (whimper, whimper)…

    California was a battleground – and not just over the SB 277 legislation. Internally, what was becoming the “Anti-Vax” Movement was involved in humongous infighting. A huge counter movement, within the “Autism” world, was telling those that insisted that their argument “We know that vaccines are safe and effective (sniff, sniff), but we just want personal choice (whimper, whimper)… was a non-starter.

    A huge fight ensued between the “personal choice” contingent and the “vaccines are neither safe nor effective” activists. We lost the SB 277 fight, but the “personal choice” people were forced out of a leadership role.

    Once the “vaccines are neither safe nor effective” partisans began to punch their way through the “Autism” structure, everything changed. Now there was a “positioning” that made sense, and provided a common banner, From there, from that point, an easily usable strategy began to unfold. The whole movement dropped the “Autism” movement designation and went full-on “Anti-Vax.”

    And THAT was the Good part…
    All across America “Anti-Vax” activists dropped the polite obsequious (whimpering) approach and not only went nose-to nose with their former detractors, like the internet trolls, and the Paul Offits of the world, but they battered those former tormentors, like “Orac,“ into the internet equivalent of “road kill.” The organized “skeptics” became a common “chew toy” for angered “Anti-Vax” operators. The “Anti-Vax” activists had found out how to make activism fun.

    With the newer, and better message, “Anti-Vax” stuff began to happen at every level. So much so that Big Pharma, in desperation contacted the World Health Organization (WHO) for help against us. Then they (laugh here) got Democratic Congressman Adam Schiff to write a letter to Google, FaceBook, etc., trying to block our ability to communicate,

    At that point Big Pharma was ADMITTING that the “Anti-Vax” Movement was, and is, ALL POWERFUL. (stand up and pound your chest…)

    Now – Over To The BAD Part…
    The “position” switch from “We know that vaccines are safe and effective (sniff, sniff), but we just want personal choice (whimper, whimper)… to the new “vaccines are neither safe nor effective” argument was EVERYTHING.

    It enabled, literally, millions of activists to turn loose their anger and frustration over the vaccine issue – and it worked – scaring Big Pharma, and their minions into desperate action.

    So, what is so bad about that?

    The massive movement STOPPED at that point, and did not move up to the next logical step – the realization that the “vaccines” themselves were NOT the problem.

    Too many “Anti-Vax” activists focused only on the problems of the vaccines themselves. They did not, and do not, realize that there is more to this argument than just those little “Made-in-China” scum tubes. The fact is that the vaccines, themselves, are the MINOR part of the problem. We are NOT going to solve “the vaccine issue” without acknowledging the bigger problems, and dealing with them.

    What is “the bigger problem?” Vaccines are NOT the problem. The REAL problem is those groups of people, and entities, who are constantly coming at all of us with a loaded syringe in their hands.

    Let me use an analogy here – suppose we were in a literal war situation where the enemy is shooting bullets (vaccines) at us, and we are hiding behind a protective wall. We are NOT going to win this conflict by avoiding bullets (vaccines). Sooner, than later, the enemy will win. We have to do something about those people shooting those bullets (vaccines) at us.

    Now in a real war, we would have some counter options. We could activate our mortar teams, lobbing mini-bombs (mortar rounds) into the shooters positions. Or, we could call in for an artillery barrage, pinpointing the enemy’s position. If we can identify their Command Post location, even better.

    The whole idea is to stop the enemy from continuing their aggressive behavior by sending bullets (vaccines) our way. When you think of the problem in those terms solutions almost provide for themselves. If you want to win the war you have to kill those shooting at you, destroy their Command Posts, destroy their supply lines, and start bombing their capital cities. THEN you start to get their attention.

    So, who are these people shooting bullets (vaccines) our way?
    That’s an easy answer…

    There are three groups – easy to identify, and even easier to strategize against.

    Let’s look at them:

    (1) The vaccine manufacturers are a very profitable arm of Big Pharma. As we know, even from the liberal news, Big Pharma constantly violates the law, and our government constantly fines then for their actions. Attorney groups, except for vaccines, constantly sue Big Pharma to stop their evil ways. Why do I mention these facts? Because I want to emphasize that these people are not out of reach. In fact, they are VERY vulnerable to the right kind of attack.

    (2) US Public Health – The original intent of “Public Health” is to act as a structure for the public good. It is made up of an arrangement between Federal, State and Local agencies. Although it is sort of a “Communism 101″ solution, there COULD BE some good in it – if it were tightly controlled.

    But, “Public Health” is NOT tightly controlled, at least not by “We the People.” They, virtually, operate on their own – and their funding comes directly, and indirectly, from Big Pharma. Guess what THAT leads to…

    The Public Law & Health Center says of them:

    “The public health system in the U.S. is a complex network of people and organizations in both public and private sectors that collaborate in various ways at national, state and local levels to promote and protect public health.

    The governmental public health system is made up of public health agencies from the federal government, 51 states (including the District of Columbia), 2,794 local governments, and 565 federally recognized tribal agencies.7
    Because of the broad flexibility states have in defining their public health role, the governmental public health infrastructure throughout the U.S. is extremely varied.”

    “Both state and local health departments serve critical roles in promoting and protecting the health of residents in their jurisdictions. State health departments provide many population-based public health services related to primary prevention, screening and treatment of diseases and conditions. Duties of a state health department often include (1) disease surveillance, epidemiology, and data collection; (2) state laboratory services; (3) preparedness and response to public health emergencies; (4) population-based primary prevention; (5) health care services; (6) regulation of health care providers and other licensed professions; (7) environmental health; and (8) technical assistance and training. According to a recent study, their most common prevention services include tobacco (87%), HIV/AIDS (85%), sexually transmitted disease counseling and partner notification (85%), nutrition (79%), and physical activity (77%).

    All Sound good? It is not. Once “vaccines” entered the picture everything changed. The entire “Public Health” structure has become just one more sales force for Big Pharma.

    “Public Health” is so arrogant that they don’t really hide this fact. The more vaccines they push on Americans the better pay this bag of scum gets. These people deceive the American Public by telling us all that they are here to protect us. THAT is a lie. They are here to vaccinate us.

    “In addition, more than 90 percent of all state health departments perform vaccine order management and inventory distribution for childhood immunizations, and over 80 percent for adult immunizations.”

    (3) The “Astro-Turf” forces funded by Big Pharma – like the “skeptics” , and even sleazier groups like Every Child by Two (ECBT). J.B. Handley wrote a superb article about this situation called:

    “How The CDC and Big Pharma use Non-profit Front Groups to Advance Extremist Mandatory Vaccination Policy Restricting Religious Freedoms”

    In his article J.B says:

    “Like many organizations that abuse the 501(c)(3) rules of the Internal Revenue Service, Every Child By Two (“ECBT”) puts on a front to the world that they are an independent, compassionate organization of parents — originally founded by Rosalynn Carter no less — dedicated to the important work of getting every child vaccinated.

    In fact, the organization is really a sock-puppet mouthpiece for two masters: 1) the Centers for Disease Control and, 2) vaccine makers, their two primary sources of funding.”

    And J.B also points out:

    “Have you ever heard of a “Special Interest Dot-Org”?

    It’s a front group for a special interest masquerading as a non-profit organization, and ECBT is one of the more notorious “SIDs” in existence — at least to parents of vaccine-injured children like me.

    I first wrote about ECBT back in 2008, when nearly half of their annual funding came from the vaccine maker Wyeth.

    Just a few months ago in late 2017, the British Medical Journal published their own scathing critique of non-profit, pro-vaccine front groups funded by both the CDC and vaccine makers, and specifically mentioned ECBT:

    “IAC, ECBT, and AAP have a few things in common. They are all non-profit organizations with large online presences that promote themselves as sources of reliable information on vaccines.

    They also receive funding from both vaccine manufacturers and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. And, in their advocacy for compulsory vaccination, they all have in common a goal that pushes beyond official governmental policy and, in the case of influenza vaccines, the evidence.”

    Above are our REAL Targets…
    We are in a war people…

    We need to, figuratively speaking, focus our energies on DESTROYING anyone, and everyone, coming at us with a loaded gun (syringe). No mercy. No prisoners. No settlements. Public hangings, so to speak. The “Anti-Vax” movement is strong enough, and mean enough, to get this done. We just have to focus on specific targets, and begin the destruction process…

    And, when we shift gears, you will find that we have even more allies than you can imagine…
    I am a semi-retired Crisis Management Consultant in Health Care. My specialty was/is the protection of cutting-edge (Alternative Medicine) health practitioners, and their innovative non-drug offerings. I have always had to design campaigns to defend against, and attack, what seems like an overwhelming behemoth coming after my clients. Victory was always easy once we changed the game.

    Change the game? Yes. NEVER fight on the enemy’s battlefield. Lure the dumb bastards onto a killing ground of your own choice. Prepare well – and watch the enemy walk into the trap. Then press the button and watch their so-called “overwhelming force” die.

    Am I joking? Nope. Every “overwhelming force” has a soft underbelly. Find it. Exploit it. Cut it wide open so their entrails are in the dirt. Then attack relentlessly. Don’t let it get back up. The “Anti-Vax” movement is PERFECT for this kind of campaign for the massive number of activists cannot be “overwhelmed.”

    Remember the Lilliputians in the “Gulliver’s Travels” story? They had a very good way to subdue a big threat…

    There is REALLY only one target – Big Pharma…
    Want to win the vaccine battle? Kill Big Pharma.

    Everything else will fall into place.

    More, Big Pharma has irritated way more than just the big, and powerful “Anti-Vax” movement. Big Pharma is screwing, virtually, every American there is. And, America is waking up pissed off.

    Do you realize that BOTH political parties in the 2020 Presidential race want Big Pharma reined in? Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump SOUND JUST ALIKE when they talk about Big Pharma ripping off Americans.

    The “Vaccine Solution” is simple…
    If we can help Bernie and Donald to cut Big Pharma’s income by a significant percentage, they, Big Pharma, will NOT be able to fund their “Astro-Turf” organizations. Nor will they be able to pour money into the CDC, which goes on to the State and local “Public Health” groups.

    Nor will they control our federal and State legislators any more. They simply will NOT have the money to buy them.

    In essence, we are at the point where, as I showed in the war analogy above, we can completely destroy those shooting at us with bullets (vaccines). We gave these Big Pharma assholes enough warning – let’s go get them.

    Stay tuned…

    Quote Chinese parents demand answers over ‘dangerous vaccines’

    Families unite online in a shared belief that their children have been sickened – and even killed – by injections

    For new mother Wang Shixia, there was nothing remotely alarming about getting a compulsory DPT shot for her seven-month-old son at a well-established hospital in China’s coastal province of Shandong.
    But little did she realise, the state-sponsored injection three years ago – given yearly to millions of newborns nationwide to prevent diphtheria, whooping cough and tetanus – would nearly claim the life of her son and plunge her family into a nightmare that still haunts them.
    As new vaccine scandal grips China, parents say they’ve lost faith in the system
    Wang’s child developed a high temperature hours after the jab and his condition soon worsened. Within a fortnight, the infant was in an intensive care unit fighting a persistent high fever, a festering rash, a bone marrow infection and meningitis.
    The child survived but continued to need medical treatment every few months in Beijing. The health authorities confirmed that the child’s condition was a result of the vaccine.

    Now, with China confronting its worst public health crisis in years, Wang and hundreds of other parents who say their children have been sickened, disabled or killed by vaccinations in years past are demanding answers from the government.

    The crisis erupted when the drug authorities announced that Changchun Changsheng Bio-technology, one of the country’s biggest vaccine makers, made about 252,600 substandard DPT vaccines that were given to hundreds of thousands of babies – some as young as three months old.
    The company also forged data in the production of about 113,000 rabies vaccines, state drug regulators said.
    Vaccine scandal: the Chinese officials who defy disgrace to rise from the ashes of public crises
    So far, the listed company has been given a small fine – just 0.6 per cent of its 2017 net profit. Fifteen people, including its chairwoman, have also been arrested, and China’s top leaders have pledged to have a thorough investigation into the “appalling” incident.
    But for many parents, this is not enough.
    “The bad guys of course should be punished, but what about the children and families who have already been inflicted with so much pain and suffering [by the vaccines]? Don’t we deserve answers and compensation?” Wang said.
    The DPT shot given to Wang’s child was made by Changsheng Bio-tech, but was not among the batch of faulty vaccines found by the state drug regulator. According to the US Centres for Disease Control and Prevention, any vaccine can cause side effects, and there is risk – albeit extremely small – of a vaccine causing severe harm and even death.

    However, having lost faith in China’s scandal-plagued pharmaceutical industry and the government’s lax regulation on food and drug safety, Wang and others suspect there are more problematic vaccines made by Changsheng Bio-tech and other companies, presenting dangers to their children.
    “For us, the most important thing is that such tragedies do not happen again,” said Li Baosheng, a Shandong father who said his son died after a vaccination.
    Li’s then eight-year-old son came home with a high fever in 2010 after getting a Changsheng H1N1 flu shot at school. He fell into a coma two days later and stopped breathing. After a fortnight on a respirator followed by two months of treatment at a Beijing hospital, the boy remained in a vegetative state until he died in August, Li said.
    “We cannot allow the latest scandal to just fade away after a few days. Similar problems and scandals have occurred again and again in the past few years. It means the government has done nothing to improve regulation and safety control,” he said.
    The Changsheng Bio-tech revelations come just two years after health authorities announced that 2 million improperly stored vaccines were sold around the country from an overheated, dilapidated storeroom. A year before that, hundreds of infants in central Henan province were reportedly given expired vaccines, causing two deaths.
    As China's vaccine scandal unfolds, anxious parents turn to Hong Kong to get children vaccinated
    In 2013, health authorities investigated a vaccine maker after eight infants died in two months following injections of hepatitis B vaccines. And in 2010, journalist Wang Keqin reported claims that unrefrigerated vaccines in Shanxi province killed four children and sickened more than 70 others.
    “There are so many victims throughout the country. I’ve been calling for legislation on vaccines since 2010, but to no avail,” Li said.
    In the aftermath, nearly 400 parents who say their children are victims of faulty vaccines have formed a group chat in popular messaging app WeChat.
    Some urge each other to submit petitions to the State Council via a website set up to collect public feedback until September, while others consider legal action and petitioning Beijing in person.

    But Beijing has taken a very hard line against rights activism and dissent in the past few years. In 2008, a group of parents whose children fell ill from milk formula contaminated with melamine were detained by police as they tried to hold a news conference.
    Nevertheless, some parents are undeterred.
    “There is no use in worrying about that. The knife is already over our neck and we have to speak out, otherwise it only gets worse,” said Shawn, a Chinese father in the southern city of Guangzhou who suspects his son developed epilepsy after a DPT vaccination in 2013.
    Shawn said his four-month-old began having seizures after the injection and had to spend more than a week in intensive care.
    The cases of Shawn and Li could not be independently verified.
    China censors social media posts about vaccine scandal, monitor says
    He said he was “pessimistic” that the government would hear their calls to help treat the affected children, given that most Chinese media would not cover their plight.
    Censors have also been on the move. As word of the scandal spread online on Sunday and Monday, the Chinese word for “vaccine” became one of the most censored words on Weibo, China’s Twitter-like service. A Shenzhen Media Group reporter said the authorities had issued an order banning coverage of the scandal from Tuesday.
    “Let’s be honest, the government hasn’t changed – there is no press freedom, no judicial fairness ... If these [fundamental] rights granted by the constitution can’t even be guaranteed, relying on government-initiated investigations won’t make much of a difference,” Shawn said.

    Nurses have a trusted reputation and many will realize when they have a need: no one can beat a great nurse who is intelligent, skilled and assertive in the interests of her patients.

    I gave up my license in 2014 but I will always love the principles I cherish of nursing: synthetic capacity to take information and put together relationships, using science to create practical applications, client advocacy, hygiene and support for those who need care. I feel really glad when I see other nurses stand up. Nurses could be one of the most powerful voices of reason for human concerns. That is if we stop being willing to fear for our "jobs" and therefore become just pawns of the sickcare industry and handmaids of big pharma.

    From Nurses for Vaccine Safety Alliance, Inc.

    Quote “For the first time, the number of children paralyzed by mutant strains of the polio vaccine are greater than the number of children paralyzed by polio itself.

    There have been 21 cases of vaccine-derived polio this year. These cases look remarkably similar to regular polio. But laboratory tests show they're caused by remnants of the oral polio vaccine that have gotten loose in the environment, mutated and regained their ability to paralyze unvaccinated children.”


    #Polio History:

    A little factual history, because most people really don't realize the true history of Polio. We all just think of paralyzed children in iron lung who later died.

    The Merck manual says that more than 90% of polio cases simply resembled the stomach flu, another 5% had abortive polio which included a sore throat, and another 3% had non-paralytic polio which includes some limb weakness and numbness. This 98% of people infected with polio had a complete recovery (and have life long immunity) and the symptoms resolved within 10-14 days. About 2% (slightly less) had paralytic polio. Of this 2% it is divided into 3 subcategories, but among the 3 more than 50% had a complete recovery rate, and in the other 50% some had a longer recovery and some did not fully recover - having some paralysis and some died. Of that 2%, 2% had bulbar polio, which was the horrific kind shown on TV (that is less than .04% of the people that contracted polio).

    Charts show a decline from the peak of polio in 1954, before vaccine trials began on April 12, 1955. After the vaccine trials started, an increase in Polio cases was reported in Vermont (up 266%), Rhode Island (up 454%) and Massachusetts (up 643%). Idaho and Utah even banned the vaccine because prior to the vaccine trials there had never been a case reported in those states and once they started vaccinating, people were getting infected.

    In June of 1955, just weeks after massive vaccination started, 2 of 8 lots of vaccines were administered which released live virus, infecting 40,000 people with polio, 164 were permanently paralyzed and 10 died."




    This study shows those vaccinated are able to spread polio. For 2 months polio was running through their community, via VDPV, and only 1 child, immunocompromised, had any issue!

    Polio is not the "killer/iron lung-er it's portrayed to be. 95% of polio that contract polio never even know they have it.





    Prior to 1954, the following undoubtedly hid behind the name “poliomyelitis”: Transverse Myelitis, viral or “aseptic” meningitis, Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS)- (what Franklin Delano Roosevelt had), Chinese Paralytic syndrome, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, epidemic cholera, cholera morbus, spinal meningitis, spinal apoplexy, inhibitory palsy, intermittent fever, famine fever, worm fever, bilious remittent fever, ergotism, post-polio syndrome, acute flaccid paralysis(AFP).

    Included under the umbrella term “Acute Flaccid Paralysis” are Poliomyelitis, Transverse Myelitis, Guillain-Barré syndrome, enteroviral encephalopathy, traumatic neuritis, Reye’s syndrome etc.

    India and the vaccine causing polio:

    The Cutter Incident:
    “The contaminated vaccine was directly responsible for five deaths and 51 cases of permanent paralysis among those who were vaccinated by the Cutter product. The vaccine also triggered a small epidemic among family members and others who had close contact with the children whod fallen ill. This resulted in five more deaths, and 113 more cases of paralysis.”

    “In addition, about 40,000 children mostly in California, Idaho, New Mexico and Arizona developed the stiff neck, headache, fever and muscle weakness of abortive polio, a short-lived and milder form of the disease that leaves no lasting damage.”

    When polio vaccine backfired / Tainted batches killed 10 and paralyzed 164.

    Salk polio vaccine video:

    In case you didn't know, vaccines were spreading polio. "On September 24, 1976, the Washington Post reported Dr. Salk's assertion that the Sabin live oral virus vaccine had been the "principal if not sole cause" of every reported polio case in the United States since 1961. Salk repeated this accusation July 6, 1977, when he was interviewed on CBC television, saying: "We have known now since 1961 in the United States, and prior to that in other countries, that the live virus vaccine for polio does cause the disease itself."
    This is where he said that in 1977 on television. Proof."


    The chances of getting polio worldwide are over 1 in 19 million according to data from 2014. Most cases are asymptomatic, meaning you have no symptoms. High doses of vitamin C can prevent complications. See info on Pentacel and pediarix. They are polio combo vaccines.

    Poliomyelitis = 72% of infections cause no symptoms; 25% flu-like symptoms that last 2-5 days; 0.5% leads to more severe symptoms such as paralytic polio; only people with the paralytic infection are considered to have the disease.

    13 Things You Don't Know About Polio

    1. A pesticide common in the 1800's was called Paris Green. A green liquid because it was a combination of copper and arsenic or lead and arsenic. Some of the most toxic substances known to humankind.

    2. This pesticide worked by causing neurological damage in the bugs, causing organ failure.

    3. Polio consists of symptoms synonymous with neurological damage, causing organ failure.

    4. Heavy metal poisoning from lead, mercury and other similar heavy metals manifest lesions on neurological tissues, meaning the toxin destroys the nerve/communication pathways connecting the brain to the organs in the body. http://bit.ly/1OLcFgG

    5. Polio victims present lesions on neurological tissue, that cause the organs to malfunction all around the body. (lungs, heart, nerves that control walking etc)

    6. Polio outbreaks hit throughout the summer, only during pesticide spraying times. (not the sunless and damp winter/spring seasons regarding other disease outbreaks)

    7. Polio had NO ability to spread from infected victims to the uninfected. Polio infected clusters of people in the exact same areas, suddenly and swiftly. http://bit.ly/1P6zShV

    8. Parents report finding their children paralyzed in and around apple orchards. One of the most heavily pesticide sprayed crops of the time (with lead arsenate or copper arsenate) were apple orchards.

    9. President Roosevelt became paralyzed over night while on his farm in the summer, which contained many crops, including apple orchards. He also swam the day prior in a bay that was heavily polluted by industrial agricultural run off.

    10. Dr. Ralph Scobey and Dr. Mortind Biskind testified in front of the U.S Congress in 1951 that the paralysis around the country known as polio was being caused by industrial poisons and that a virus theory was purposely fabricated by the chemical industry and the government to deflect litigation away from both parties. http://bit.ly/1DKDb3v

    11. In 1956 the AMA (The American Medical Association) instructed each licensed medical doctor that they could no longer classify polio as polio, or their license to practice would be terminated. Any paralysis was now to be diagnosed as AFP (acute flaccid paralysis) MS, MD, Bell's Palsy, cerebral palsy, ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease), Guillian-Barre, meningitis etc etc. http://bit.ly/1Ml3rpX This was orchestrated purposely to make the public believe polio was eradicated by the polio vaccine campaign but because the polio vaccine contained toxic ingredients directly linked to paralysis, polio cases (not identified as polio) were skyrocketing...but only in vaccinated areas. http://bit.ly/1WEHYzR

    12. The first polio vaccine was worked on by Dr. Jonas Salk and human experiments using this vaccine were conducted purposely on orphans in government/church run institutions because they were vulnerable and didn't require any parental consent signatures, as they had no parents. The vaccine was "declared safe" by "medicine" (as they always are even though that vaccine was killing and paralyzing monkeys in test trials) and that vaccine gave 40,000 orphans polio, permanently paralyzed hundreds and killed at least 10 children. All injuries and deaths under reported of course by the same authorities who orchestrated the atrocity. This was called The Cutter Incident. Have you noticed the medical industry's obsession with poisoning children? http://1.usa.gov/1mEozNJ

    13. The next "improved" polio vaccine, given to hundreds of millions, carried both the SV 40 cancer virus as well as the AIDS virus. Every step of the way, medicine declaring they know for sure, that this time, they have everything straightened out. Same story then, same story now. The only thing larger than the pile of broken medical and government promises, is the pile of broken and dead bodies. http://bit.ly/1HfHR7W Cancerous tumors, still being pulled out of people today, are riddled with SV40 cancer viruses from the government's "safe and effective" and "approved" polio vaccine. http://bit.ly/1jGvysV

    When someone talks of any disease, in this day and age, they're often just repeating what they were told by the government. When someone today repeats anything about polio and polio elimination based on vaccination, they're repeating known lies, told by known liars. Repeating what you're told and intelligence aren't the same thing. Repeating or intelligence. The choice is yours. Research the hidden history of polio, the disease that never was."

    New Brunswick Education Minister justifies plan to ban children from school

    By Heather Fraser MA, BA, BEd

    Riding a wave of measles hysteria in the US, the NB Minister of Education Dominic Cardy has made national headlines stoking fears of doom unless every child in the province is vaccinated… for everything. In a recent CBC article, Min. Cardy likened partially or unvaccinated children to guns.

    So far in 2019, there have been 77 cases of measles in Canada – that’s 77 people over 6 months in a population of 37 million people. 11 cases of measles have been reported in NB since April. Their recoveries did not attract mainstream media coverage.

    And this is as it has been every year in Canada for the last many years: in 2013, 83 measles cases were reported in Canada; in 2014, 418 cases; in 2015, 196 cases.

    And yet, in May, Minister Cardy tabled amendments to the Education Act and the Public Health Act (Bill 39). The amendments remove all non-medical exemptions and give school superintendents the power to refuse admission to non-compliant students. In other words, Minister Cardy plans to withhold the right to public education from children who are not compliant with the government vaccination schedule. The government takes no responsibility for vaccine injury.

    How has Minister Cardy justified these extreme measures given that there is no crisis of any sort in the province or Canada?

    In Minister Cardy’s own words from the NB Hansard

    On June 11 during second reading of his amendments, Minister Cardy defended his stance in a soliloquy worthy of a tent evangelist:

    Two hundred-plus years ago, when the first inoculations against polio were discovered, they were described by some members of the constitutional conventions that were in the process of forming the republic of the United States of America as being miracles bestowed upon our species by Providence and a Divine Creator showing his blessing for that project.

    That’s not Donald Trump. It’s Dominic Cardy.

    Here the minister has conjured a fiction about the history of the polio vaccine stating it was created in the 18th century (actually, the Salk vaccine was introduced in 1955, the Sabin oral in 1962, and there was a form of nasal spray in 1937). He continues in his bid for mandatory vaccination in NB by citing the views of the authors of the 1787 US constitution. He even manages to imply that God is pro-vaccine.

    The proselytizing continued.

    Never mind the other public health measures such as clean drinking water, sanitation, medical care, peaceful conditions, education and nutrition – Minister Cardy suggests that no other measure has had a meaningful role to play in reducing disease morbidity or mortality:

    The diseases that we cure through vaccines are not connected to other areas of public health, except in the most tenuous of ways. That is why decades ago— just decades ago—despite 60 or 70 years of an incredibly strong public health regime in Western countries, we continued to see people dying of polio, we continued to see people dying of diphtheria, and we continued to see people dying of measles…

    Actually, in the 20th century there was a rapid and dramatic decline in mortality from all diseases thanks to these other health measures. A summary of US vital statistics concluded:

    Thus, vaccination does not account for the impressive declines in mortality seen in the first half of the century...nearly 90% of the decline in infectious disease mortality among US children occurred before 1940, when few antibiotics or vaccines were available.

    And yet, Minister Cardy continued to single out partially or unvaccinated children as a threat:

    …if you are going into a school system today, nearly every school in the province has a list of restrictions, including peanut butter, shellfish, eggs, coconut, and milk products. The list goes on and on—the list of things that are prohibited, restricted, or banned in New Brunswick schools. Yet we turn around and say: Okay, it is fine to come in with a communicable, potentially fatal disease that could actually kill your classmates.

    The irony of this comment cannot be lost on VCC readers. The current epidemic of life threatening food allergies (10% of children according to a 2011 study) is the result of over vaccination, the use of aluminum containing vaccines and the liberal use of antibiotics.

    The vaccination status of the 11 people who had measles has been withheld. Yet, Minister Cardy seems to have the facts:

    .. it is coming back. Why is it coming back? It is coming back because of a tolerance of beliefs for far too long and for failing to stand up to misinformation, to falsehoods, and to active conspiracies, rather than standing up and saying: I stand up for the truth that I can see and defend. I know the research is there and the facts support that case. Instead, they will say: It depends. Let’s look at all sides of this story. Let’s look at the pros and the cons. Mr. Speaker, I have no time for such people.

    Time for some facts

    Measles is considered eliminated in Canada suggesting there may be a sufficient level of antibody protection to control outbreaks. Let’s see. With a little rough guesswork it turns out, it is possible that less than 67% of Canadians have antibodies to measles either from natural infection (born before 1975) or vaccination. 33% of Canadians – primarily adults between age 30 and 45 – may have none. Did Min. Cardy have measles?

    Further, new research reveals that vaccine-induced immunity wanes significantly despite high vaccine coverage:

    …the traditional measles correlate of protection may not be an appropriate measure of population protection in measles-eliminated settings.

    In other words, there is far more to immunity than vaccine-induced antibodies – that disappear. And adding more doses to generate this effect is not only without benefit but also it has been shown to have negative consequences. Dr. G. Poland explained what he calls the “measles paradox”:

    Thus, measles outbreaks also occur even among highly vaccinated populations because of primary and secondary vaccine failure, which results in gradually larger pools of susceptible persons and outbreaks once measles is introduced. This leads to a paradoxical situation whereby measles in highly immunized societies occurs primarily among those previously immunized.

    Such important inquiry is surely not beyond the abilities of the NB government. So, why are none of the MLAs challenging Minister Cardy?

    Why is this happening in NB?

    The hysteria over measles in Canada and the US is a mainstream media fuelled fiction paving the way for captured governments to erase rights. Vaccination is not about the health of individual children. If it was, there would be screening for contraindications including mitochondria function, MTHFR gene mutation, issues with liver and kidney function.

    Instead, new laws restricting vaccine choice without recognition of vaccine injury have been created in Ontario and BC with some discussion in Alberta and Manitoba. In NY State a draconian law has expunged religious exemptions. In California, exemptions have been removed and the government is in the process of narrowing medical exemptions. In CA, all children from birth to grade 12 must be vaccinated if they are to take part in a “classroom like setting”. Many US states have become battle grounds over the right to autonomy over one’s own body.

    This biopolitics or biopower according to Michel Foucault sees the insertion of corporate power into the decisions of government, directly or indirectly, through strategies and mechanisms designed to achieve control over populations. The results of the mandated consumption of pharmaceuticals are rising profits for shielded corporations and the download of the costs of injury and death to citizens – whose rights are being eroded by such laws as those proposed by Minister Cardy.

    Vaccine induced food allergies, neurological and other debilitating injuries are at epidemic levels. And yet, elected officials see no need for investigation. How long will citizens tolerate government gaslighting?

    This may be just the beginning in NB – but the harder people are pushed, the stronger the health freedom movement becomes.

    What’s next? Stand up for Health Freedom August 27-29 in Fredericton!

    Minister Cardy suggests the courts will likely side with him if there is a Charter challenge. He also implies that vaccination should be mandated for all Canadian children:

    If there are any questions around constitutionality in the courts, we welcome the opportunity to clarify our position and to stand up for the children—not just students in New Brunswick but students across Canada.


    Here is your opportunity to be heard!

    British Columbia - New Mandatory Reporting Regulations

    By the VCC Research Team

    As of of July 1st, 2019, a new mandatory ‘Vaccination Status Reporting Regulation’ came into effect in British Columbia. The newly introduced regulations to the BC Public Health Act mean that it is now mandatory for parents to report the vaccination status of their children attending school and daycare. There are three mandatory requirements:

    1. Mandatory disclosure of the child’s vaccine status. For parents who do not vaccinate according to the recommended schedule, a written, signed and dated statement providing their reason for not vaccinating for each scheduled vaccine is required.

    2. Mandatory attendance at an “information session”. Regulations taking effect in September 2020 demand that parents who choose not to vaccinate or who vaccinate selectively or choose an alternate vaccine schedule are forced to attend, “together with their child”, the “information session”.

    3. Mandatory meeting with a medical officer of health or a public health nurse following the vaccine “information session”. Rather than provide parents with a simple form that exempts their child from vaccines based on broadly accepted Charter rights of conscience, personal belief and religion, parents and children will have to face a medical interrogator, which could be construed as an additional intimidation and shamming tactic.

    These three mandatory requirements are being imposed despite the fact that public health officials already have access to everyone’s medical records in the province and thus already know which children are in compliance with the provincial vaccine schedule and those who are not.

    A number of parents who do not vaccinate according to the provincial vaccine schedule have contacted us with letters from their local public health units that contain their child’s vaccination status. What is self-evident is that Public Health already has the necessary information on vaccine status for these children.

    Since health officials already have access to every child’s medical record, it begs the question whether these new Regulations are a sincere request for information, or an effort at coercion and instilling fear in parents.

    Furthermore, introducing the threat of large fines and/or imprisonment for non-compliance with administrative requirements of reporting vaccination status, submitting written statements on reasons for not vaccinating, as well as attending mandatory information sessions and meetings with a health official is especially draconian.

    These new regulations make it increasingly challenging for BC citizens to exercise their legal right to medical decision-making and protecting the privacy of their medical records. As well, there is the real potential to undermine the medical ethic of informed consent, thus threatening our most basic liberties.

    Any efforts to impose vaccine products by coercion alters the relationship between a government and its citizens and undermines trust in both government and the medical profession.

    To recap - what the new Regulations mean comes down to this:

    Sec 5(2): mandates the vaccine status report or proof of vaccination,

    Sec 6: mandates a written and signed statement if your child is not fully vaccinated including the reason for not vaccinating with all or some vaccines,

    Sec 7(3)a: mandates attendance at information session with your not fully vaccinated child (!) and meeting w/public health officer/nurse also with your child!

    By not complying with any one of these three mandatory Regulations would constitute an infraction and would put families at risk of being subjected to undue harsh retaliation and punishment by the state.

    In a legal opinion received from a Canadian Constitutional Law Specialist on the new BC Regulations, we learned that;

    "The new Regulations, in concert and through ss.107 and 108 of the Public Health Act, impose draconian measures, as well as monetary fines of up to $200,000.00 and up to six (6) months in jail, and flagrantly violate:

    (a) a person's freedom of conscience and belief contrary to s.2 of the Charter;

    (b) a person's freedom and security of the person to their physical and psychological integrity, over the control and decisions over their own body, contrary to s. 7 of the Charter, with a law that is "overly broad", which is contrary to the tenets of fundamental justice under s.7 of the Charter, in not allowing for any personal or individual exemptions;

    (c) violates the right to equal treatment under the law, contrary to s.15 of the Charter, in that the Regulations and Act do not apply to Indigenous persons, which clearly vitiates the validity and valid objective of the law with respect to its purported purpose."

    The threat of fines and imprisonment for non-compliance to a mandatory reporting regulation are especially drastic as this is an administrative process only that will not reduce the public risk of contracting a communicable disease.

    Further, it is being applied in a coercive and discriminatory manner. The government press release on this mandatory reporting regulation states: “Most parents are already in compliance with this requirement, so they will not need to do anything further when the new school year starts.”

    However, the parents who have received letters from their local public health units containing an immunization status record for their child actually indicate that further action is required even though the record is on file and they are thus in compliance. Further actions include the directives to make a copy of the file, take it to their child’s school (which is noted in the letter) and call the public health unit for an appointment. These letters are only being sent to parents if their child has not received all recommended vaccinations. Why are these parents singled out since the records are already on file and they are in compliance with the reporting regulation?

    In a June 28 Global News Report regarding this new legislation, Health Minister Adrian Dix is quoted as saying, “It’s a significant change. The first year will involve engaging with parents to ensure we have a full record.” He also said, “we think mandatory reporting makes sense for everyone: schools, parents and communities.”

    Vaccine Choice Canada disagrees with the Health Minister’s opinion that “mandatory reporting makes sense for everyone.” Although the new Regulations do not make vaccination mandatory, we see this as a step in that direction. Dear BC Parents outlines our concerns with the new Regulations and we hope it inspires BC parents to take action against government imposed medical tyranny.

    We also provide additional resources and information on our Dear BC Parents page that parents can print off and take to their MLA to help them articulate why they are opposed to the new regulation. As well, we encourage parents to exercise their right to medical records privacy and the right to make voluntary and informed medical decisions for their families.

    BC parents should also know that, in Ontario, “parents are now refusing to attend education sessions, sign affidavits and are continuing to send their children to school even when they have received a notice of suspension.”

    On a positive note, VCC billboards have been placed along a busy highway in West Kelowna. These are the same billboards that were posted in the Greater Toronto Area in February. These billboards contain simple messages informing parents that vaccines have risks and that vaccines are not required for school. You can view the billboards as rotating slides on the main page of our website.

    In Toronto, our billboards remained up for about 5 days before being forced down by pro-pharma bullies. In BC, they have been up in that location since June the 29th! There has been no media attention regarding these billboards nor any official calls to take them down. As of today, July the 29th, the billboards have been on display for a month, potentially being seen by thousands of drivers on the highway.

    We will continue to encourage and support BC parents to stand strong in their convictions and to resist coercion in the face of these new heavy-handed Regulations.

    "This blog is my best effort at providing some balance to the increasingly strident healthcare lobby that seems intent on scaring everyone about almost everything."

    Quote A second look at vaccination – answers that cannot be questioned
    29th July 2019

    ‘No man can be forced to be healthful, whether he will or not. In a free society, individuals must judge for themselves what information they choose to heed and what they ignore.’ John Locke. ‘A letter concerning Toleration’

    Here, I am going have another look at vaccination, before scurrying away from the subject for a bit, and getting back to the safe ground of cardiovascular disease. Much to the relief of some of the regular readers of this blog, no doubt.

    I have to say that I thought long and hard about blogging on vaccination. It is the most brutal area for discussion that I have ever seen, and a reputation shredder. If you even dare to hint that there may just be the slightest issue with any vaccine, people come down upon you like a ton of bricks.

    I also know that by daring to write on this subject, there will inevitably be people moving behind the scenes to have my blog taken down. I cannot imagine WordPress management going to the wire to protect my right to free speech. A little flick of a switch, and I will be gone from the airwaves.

    However, as we move towards a world where it seems that all Governments around the world are going to pass laws mandating vaccination for everyone, and people are fined, or lose their jobs, for speaking out, or refusing to be vaccinated, then I feel that some attempt to discuss the area is essential.

    Because, once something becomes mandatory, and any research into possible harms moves strictly off limits, we really need to be absolutely one hundred per-cent certain that there is no possibility that we may be doing harm. Or, that we are reducing any potential harm to the lowest level possible.

    Can vaccines do harm?

    ‘Prof Martin Gore, 67, one of the UK’s leading cancer scientists, has died, the Royal Marsden NHS foundation trust has said. His death was following a yellow fever vaccination.’ 1

    A tragedy for a brilliant medical researcher and his family. It was brought to my attention by my wife, who knew him quite well.

    However, even here, we can see any criticism of vaccines being toned down and deflected. The words ‘caused by’ were carefully avoided. It was reported that he died following a yellow fever vaccination – which could mean he was vaccinated, then got hit by a bus. In fact, if you read a little more deeply, it becomes inarguable that the yellow fever vaccine was the direct cause of his death.

    Yes, such an event is rare, but such events do occur. People can die following vaccinations, as a direct cause of that vaccination, although the information can be very difficult to find. In Germany, the Paul-Erlich Institute [PEI] is the organisation responsible for the reporting of vaccine security/safety.

    ‘Between 1978 and 1993 approximately 13,500 cases of undesired effects resulting from medications for vaccinations was reported to the Paul Erlich Institute (PEI) which is the institute which is responsible for vaccine security; the majority was reported by the pharmaceutical industry. In 40% of cases the complications were severe, 10% pertained to fatalities on account of the effects.’ 2

    Yes, the numbers are relatively small – although by no means vanishingly small. In a fifteen-year period that is 1,350 deaths. If the Germans are preventing tens of thousands of deaths a year through vaccination, then a thousand severe complications and a hundred deaths or so, per year, may be a price worth paying? Discuss.

    Primum non nocere

    My own view is that you should never compel people to undergo a medical procedure that could result in severe damage – or death. But my philosophy is very much on the radical libertarian end of the spectrum. Others feel that personal liberties should be restricted for the overall good of society. A central philosophical divide, I suppose.

    One of the other interesting facts from the Paul-Erlich Institute is that ‘severe cases’ of vaccine damage, that occur, that must be reported, include:

    Encephalopathia: Encephalopathia is frequently overlooked as it does not always entail severe symptoms. However, there can later be developmental retardation. Encephalopathia can also trigger cri encéphalique
    Sleeping sickness 2
    These are not my words; these are the words of the PEI.

    This list obviously raises the issue of potential brain damage following vaccination. Something that was seen with Pandemrix, used to protect against Swine Flu (HIN1).

    ‘An increased risk of narcolepsy was found following vaccination with Pandemrix, a monovalent 2009 HIN1 influenza vaccine that was used in several European countries during the HIN1 influenza pandemic. Narcolepsy is a chronic neurological caused by the brain’s inability to regulate the sleep-wake cycles normally. This risk was initially found in Finland, and then some other European countries also detected an association. Most recently, scientists at the United Kingdom’s Health Protection Agency (HPA) have found evidence of an association between Pandemrix and narcolepsy in children in England. The findings are consistent with studies from Finland and other countries.’ 2

    [A finding not seen in any safety testing carried out prior to the launch of Pandemrix]

    Thus, not only can vaccines cause severe reactions up to, and including, death. They can also lead to neurological damage such as narcolepsy. Is this all specifically to do with the vaccine itself, or the preservative it is carried in, or something else? Who knows?

    Yet, and yet, despite the apparently indisputable evidence that vaccines can, and do, cause neurological damage we can find articles such as this below. Chosen pretty much at random, but it sums up the current mainstream thinking.

    The “urban myth” of the association between neurological disorders and vaccinations

    ‘In modern society, a potentially serious adverse event attributed to a vaccination is likely to be snapped up by the media, particularly newspapers and television, as it appeals to the emotions of the public. The widespread news of the alleged adverse events of vaccination has helped to create the “urban myth” that vaccines cause serious neurological disorders and has boosted antivaccination associations. This speculation is linked to the fact that the true causes of many neurological diseases are largely unknown. The relationship between vaccinations and the onset of serious neuropsychiatric diseases is certainly one of coincidence rather than causality. This claim results from controlled studies that have excluded the association between vaccines and severe neurological diseases, therefore it can be said, with little risk of error, that the association between modern vaccinations and serious neurological disorders is a true “urban myth”. 3

    What is being stated here, very forcefully indeed, is that there is no causal relationship between vaccination and neurological damage. It is simply a myth. I find the two bodies of evidence here impossible to reconcile.

    Just to give two examples, the Paul Erlich Institute records encephalopathia, seizures, epilepsy, deaths and suchlike, following vaccination. The Pandemrix vaccine, in turn, has been proven to cause narcolepsy. Even the manufacturers, GSK, admitted that it did.

    ‘The 2009 H1N1 influenza pandemic left a troubling legacy in Europe: More than 1300 people who received a vaccine to prevent the flu developed narcolepsy, an incurable, debilitating condition that causes overpowering daytime sleepiness, sometimes accompanied by a sudden muscle weakness in response to strong emotions such as laughter or anger. The manufacturer, GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), has acknowledged the link, and some patients and their families have already been awarded compensation. But how the vaccine might have triggered the condition has been unclear.4’

    This is… I am not sure what it is. The evidence clearly says one thing, yet we are told we must believe that this evidence is simply an ‘urban myth.’ I feel as though I have been transported to Wonderland, or some scary totalitarian state, where the truth cannot be spoken.

    Even when it comes to the most contentious area of all, vaccines and autism, it appears to have been accepted – at least in one case in the US – that vaccination lead to autism, with a girl called Hannah Polling.

    ‘Officials at the US Department of Health and Human Services investigating Hannah’s medical history said that vaccine had ‘significantly aggravated an underlying mitochondrial disorder, which predisposed her to deficits in energy metabolism’, causing damage ‘with features of autism spectrum disorder’. 2

    The final part of the statement was very difficult to understand. ‘The officials said that the vaccine didn’t cause her autism, but ‘resulted’ in it.’ The vaccine resulted in her autism. Or, her autism resulted in her vaccination?

    I have tried that statement a few different ways around, and I have no idea what that means. A lead to B, but A did not cause B. Because B resulted in A…

    “Then you should say what you mean,” the March Hare went on.

    “I do, “ Alice hastily replied; “at least I mean what I say, that’s the same thing, you know.”

    “Not the same thing a bit!” said the Hatter. “Why, you might just as well say that “I see what I eat” is the same thing as “I eat what I see!” Alice in Wonderland.

    However, the Polling case does raise a further potentially important issue. Namely, that it seems possible that some people have underlying ‘mitochondrial dysfunction,’ and that vaccination may aggravate this problem, with potentially serious consequences.

    Narcolepsy, for example, is believed by some researchers to be a problem with energy production in the mitochondria. Others feel that ME/CFS (myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome) could be the result of a mitochondrial dysfunction triggered by various viral infections and, therefore, possibly vaccination?

    All of which means that the possibility exists that vaccination could trigger, or exacerbate, significant mitochondrial dysfunction in susceptible individuals. This may or may not be true, but it must surely be an area for research?

    To my mind it would be extremely important to establish if mitochondrial dysfunction represents a ‘risk’ for vaccination. We could then identify, using some genetic/epigenetic test, those individuals who are more likely to be damaged by vaccination. At which point we could look at ways to prevent the risk of damage – however small that risk may – be in a susceptible population.

    For example, it could be possible to space out the vaccines, or only give separate vaccinations to these individuals. Maybe we could avoid vaccinating against relatively mild conditions e.g. chicken pox, or rubella (in boys) in these individuals. To me, these things seem eminently sensible areas for study.

    However, it seems that we are trapped within a paradigm where it is impossible to suggest that any vaccine, for any disease, may be associated with/cause any degree of harm. In such an environment, objective scientific research becomes impossible. ‘As vaccine can harm no-one, we cannot try to find out who may be harmed. Thank you, comrade.’

    As you can probably tell, I find this all very worrying and deeply, deeply, disturbing. If science has any purpose it is to seek the truth – however much that upsets the current status quo. When I see, what I believe to be important and valid questioning being crushed, I find it almost physically painful.

    If that questioning results in the finding that vaccines truly do not cause any adverse effects, then that is fine. I would be more than happy with that outcome, although it currently seems inarguable that vaccines do cause adverse effects. However, as I see it, we currently have a situation whereby:

    Pharmaceutical companies do their own safety testing on vaccines (somewhat like Boeing did on the 737 Max 8). The regulatory authorities have been, effectively, side-lined.
    Many safety studies have only lasted days, with little or no research on any long-term effects. In fact, as far as I can establish, there has been no long-term safety research [see under Pandemrix]
    Some vaccines have been proven to cause neurological damage
    The preservatives and adjuvants in vaccines have not been studied for safety
    There has never been a randomised controlled clinical study on the efficacy of any vaccine – beyond looking for a raised level of antibodies
    Some/many people can suffer from the diseases they have been vaccinated against – and this is not monitored in any way.
    Any of these things should be a very large red flag.

    Looking specifically at efficacy, on that list, it is usually stated that vaccines are rigorously tested for efficacy. Here is what the University of Oxford has to say in its site ‘Vaccine Knowledge Project.’

    ‘Phase III trials gather statistically significant data on the vaccine’s safety and efficacy (how well it works). This means looking at whether the vaccine generates a level of immunity that would prevent disease, and provides evidence that the vaccine can actually reduce the number of cases.’ 5

    However, this does not actually test whether a vaccine really does reduce the number of cases of a disease. As I wrote in the previous blog, even in population with a 98% vaccination rate against measles, a school population still suffered a measles outbreak, and many of those previously vaccinated suffered from measles.

    Which means that the statement from the Vaccine Knowledge Project…. and provides evidence that the vaccine can actually reduce the number of cases’ needs to be read very carefully. It could be taken to mean ‘provides all the evidence needed.’ Which is what it has been crafted to imply. However, it actually means ‘provides evidence regarding a ‘surrogate end-point’ which suggests that vaccines may reduce the number of cases.’

    If you want to know if a vaccine really works, vaccinate a hundred thousand people against a disease. Do not vaccinate another hundred thousand people (matched and randomised) – and then see what happens. Then you will know how well your vaccine works.

    This is a requirement of all other forms of medical intervention (with provisos), but it is not a requirement for vaccines. A true efficacy study does not simply look at a ‘surrogate’ marker. It needs to study hard endpoints e.g. how many people are truly protected against the disease. Also, what the rate of adverse events may be.

    Of course, there are those who think that such a trial would be ridiculous and unethical. Here, I quote from a website KevinMD:

    ‘….as some have actually demanded, we must have a randomized controlled trial (RCT), the gold standard of clinical research. RCTs use random assignment of subjects to one group or the other, in this case vaccine or a placebo (fake vaccine), and ensure both the subjects and evaluation team be blinded to who got what.

    Think about this for a minute. They are demanding parents agree to subject their child to a trial in which they have a 50/50 chance of getting a fake vaccine. All this to satisfy the concerns of vaccine deniers.

    It would be incredibly unethical to do such a study, and no institutional review board (aka human studies committee) would ever approve such a thing. For such trials, there must be reasonable uncertainty about which group is getting the better treatment, and in this case, there is none. The bottom line is any vaccine skeptic who demands proof like this is being massively disingenuous. It’s akin to demanding a randomized controlled trial of parachutes.’ 6

    What is being said here is that there is no uncertainty that vaccines work, so there is no need for a randomised controlled trial. The counter argument to this is simply to turn the argument inside out. Without an RCT, how do you know that vaccines work? Where is your evidence? Or does ‘just knowing that it works’, count?

    Medicine is littered with examples of interventions that were considered so inarguably beneficial that no trials were ever done. Strict bed rest following an MI, the radical mastectomy, x-ray screening for lung cancer, PCI in the non-acute setting.

    Bernard Lown was a man who dared challenge the ‘unquestionable’ benefits of coronary artery bypass surgery. He had a long and arduous battle to publish his evidence that CABG may cause more harm than benefit. His blog on this, ‘A Maverick’s Lonely Path in Cardiology (Essay 28)’, is well worth a read. As he concludes:

    ‘A new treatment, whether involving drugs or procedures, is improper without indubitable supporting evidence of benefit. The patients’ well-being must not be compromised by imagined good when countervailing interests are at the same time being served. Our forty-year struggle essentially concerned medicine’s first and inviolate principle, primum non nocere. “First do no harm” is the litmus test sanctioning the privilege to practice medicine.’ 7

    Bernard Lown is one hundred per cent correct, and I find it difficult to conceive that anyone who has the slightest understanding of science could write the words ‘The bottom line is any vaccine skeptic who demands proof like this [an RCT] is being massively disingenuous.’

    Disingenuous… Personally, I demand proof like this for all medical interventions, wherever possible, and so should everyone else. The reason why, is because evidence from controlled clinical trials (with all their inherent flaws) is the only tool that we possess to properly assess benefit vs. harm. Without such evidence we are simply hoping and praying that benefits truly outweigh any downsides.

    For example, with the Pandemrix vaccine. Had an RCT been done, it is possible, even probable, that the adverse impact on Narcolepsy would have been picked up. Therefore, it would not have been used, therefore many thousands of people would not have been harmed – above and beyond narcolepsy. Some of the key issues around Pandemrix were discussed in the BMJ article ‘Pandermix vaccine: why was the public not told of early warning signs?’

    ‘Eight years after the pandemic influenza outbreak, a lawsuit alleging that GlaxoSmithKline’s Pandemrix vaccine caused narcolepsy has unearthed internal reports suggesting problems with the vaccine’s safety.

    ‘…the raw numbers of adverse events were not small. Although it is often said that perhaps only up to 10% of adverse events are reported to national reporting systems, by late November, GSK had received 1138 serious adverse event reports for Pandemrix—a rate of 76 per million doses administered. By mid-December, there had been 3280 serious adverse event reports (68/million doses). The last report seen by the BMJ, dated 31 March 2010, shows 5069 serious adverse events for Pandemrix (72/million doses).’ 8

    As the article goes on to say:

    “What is the purpose of pharmacovigilance if nobody is acting on the information? This information took eight years to come to light through academic work and litigation. Is this acceptable? If the information at our disposal is partial, that is the direct consequence of secrecy, which should not surround any public health intervention.”

    Pandemrix and Arepanrix were designed for a pandemic and were removed from global markets after the pandemic. Whatever adverse events they may have caused, they are vaccines of the past. But the events of 2009-10 raise fundamental questions about the transparency of information. When do public health officials have a duty to warn the public over possible harms of vaccines detected through pharmacovigilance? How much detail should the public be provided with, who should provide it, and should the provision of such information be proactive or passive?’

    All good questions.

    Had Pandemrix not caused narcolepsy in large numbers, litigation against GSK would not have taken place – in Ireland. Had this not happened, data about the high rate of other adverse effect would never have seen the light of day. It seems that the European Medicines Agency had little interest in the matter.

    ‘What EMA knew—or could have known—about the comparative safety of GSK’s pandemic vaccines is hard to discern. It told The BMJ that “EMA does not perform comparative benefit and risk evaluations between products approved in the EU, or between EU products and products approved or used outside the EU.”

    So, if monitoring product safety is not of interest to them, what exactly do the EMA do? Central here, however, is the fact that we had a vaccine causing a high number of serious adverse events and no-one did, or said, anything. Had there not been a lawsuit, we would still have been unaware of any problems. At least that is my understanding of what happened here.

    Does anyone care? Well, in many countries you cannot even sue the manufacturer if a vaccine damages you – as also mentioned in the BMJ article.

    ‘Another element, adopted by countries such as Canada, the US, UK, France, and Germany, was to provide vaccine manufacturers indemnity from liability for wrongdoing, thereby reducing the risk of a lawsuit stemming from vaccine related injury.’ Quite extraordinary. In my view, beyond extraordinary.

    A manufacturer makes a product that you believe may have damaged or killed a loved one, and you cannot do anything about it. Or, those who made the product cannot be sued. In banking they have a phrase for this. They call it moral hazard.

    ‘lack of incentive to guard against risk where one is protected from its consequences, e.g. by insurance.’ In this case no insurance is required. Governments have given pharmaceutical companies a free pass. Depending on your belief in the inherent ethical standards of pharmaceutical companies you may – or may not – find this reassuring.

    Personally, I find it extremely worrying that people, and the entire medical profession, appear willing to accept that all vaccines, for all conditions, are entirely effective and have no adverse effects…. Even when it has been demonstrated, beyond doubt, that they do.

    Anyway, I feel I should probably stop here. Others have gone much further than me, others have been braver. But there should be nothing ‘brave’ about asking legitimate scientific questions. As Richard Feynman said. ‘I would rather have questions that can’t be answered than answers that can’t be questioned.’

    Paul Offit Unwittingly Exposes Scientific Fraud of FDA’s Vaccine Licensure
    By Jeremy R. Hammond, Contributing Writer, Children’s Health Defense

    By telling parents not to do antibody blood tests to avoid needlessly vaccinating their child, Paul Offit unwittingly exposes scientific fraud by the FDA.
    Many parents today are naturally concerned about the number of vaccine doses their children are exposed to by following the schedule recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). To many parents, it makes sense to avoid vaccinating their children unnecessarily, and to this end a blood test can be done to determine an antibody titer, or the level of antibodies in the blood. If a child already has a protective antibody titer, indicating immunity to a given infectious disease, then there would be no reason for the child to undergo the risks associated with vaccinating against that disease.

    To persuade parents that this is wrong thinking, the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) has published a video in which Dr. Paul Offit argues that such blood tests are of little practical use, and that the best thing for parents to do is just to get their children all of the vaccinations strictly according to the CDC’s schedule.

    Offit’s argument, however, is fallacious.

    Moreover, the nature of his argument reveals how advocates of existing public vaccine policy rely on deception in order to persuade the public to comply with the wishes of the bureaucrats and technocrats who determine that policy.

    In fact, properly understood in its context, Offit’s argument undercuts the case for public vaccine policy inasmuch as it highlights how, in order to get vaccine products to the market, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) colludes with the pharmaceutical industry in what is arguably scientific fraud.

    … just because someone doesn’t have a protective level of antibodies doesn’t necessarily mean that they aren’t immune.
    Offit’s Argument
    In the video, Paul Offit introduces himself as coming from the so-called “Vaccine Education Center” at the CHOP. Then he acknowledges parents’ concern about unnecessary vaccinations:

    One thing that parents worry about, or wonder about is, do I really need a vaccine if I’ve already had one or two doses? Do I really need to finish out the schedule, for example? Or maybe I’ve already been exposed to a virus or bacteria, so I don’t really need to even get vaccines at all.

    So instead, how about if I just have my blood tested to see whether or not I have a protective immune response already against that particular virus or bacteria.

    But, Offit argues, this is “not as easily done as you would think” because antibody titers are not necessarily indicative of immunity.

    He names the hepatitis B virus and the Haemohilus influenzae type B bacterium as examples of pathogens for which a certain quantity of antibodies in the blood is equivalent to immunity.

    This is not the case, however, for other pathogens, including the measles virus; rotavirus; and the pertussis bacterium, which causes whooping cough.

    With measles, having a certain antibody titer does correlate with immunity, but a lack of antibodies isn’t necessarily indicative of a lack of immunity. In Offit’s words (bold emphasis added):

    However, there was an outbreak of measles in the late 1980s, early 1990s that swept through the United States that caused more than 50,000 hospitalizations and caused about 120, children mostly, to die from measles.

    When people looked back at that outbreak, you found that there were many people who had been vaccinated, but who didn’t have antibodies against measles who were still protected. The reason they were still protected is they had something called memory cells. Memory immunological cells, like B- and T-cells, which then when they were exposed to the virus became activated, differentiated, made antibodies, which then protected them. So even though they didn’t have circulating antibodies in their bloodstream, they still have these memory cells in their immune system that could then respond when they were exposed. So, if you looked at those people and saw they didn’t have antibodies, you would have falsely concluded they weren’t protected when they were.

    In short, just because someone doesn’t have a protective level of antibodies doesn’t necessarily mean that they aren’t immune. One can still be immune to a disease due to what is known as cell-mediated immunity, which is a different branch of the immune system from humoral, or antibody, immunity.

    Conversely, Offit continues (bold emphasis added):

    Sometimes you can have antibodies in your bloodstream and not be protected.

    So, for example rotavirus or pertussis bacteria affect really just the mucosal surfaces. So, rotaviruses just infect the lining of the small intestine. Pertussis or whooping cough infects sort of the lining of the trachea or windpipe and the lungs. That virus and that bacteria don’t really spread into the bloodstream and cause a systemic infection. They’re so-called mucosal infections. So when you look at immunity in the bloodstream, that doesn’t necessarily predict whether or not there’s going to be adequate immunity at that mucosal surface.

    In short, just because someone has a high antibody titer doesn’t mean that they are immune. Cell-mediated immunity and mucosal immunity—or both—may also—or instead—be required to provide adequate protection against disease.

    Offit summarizes by saying that “titers are difficult” and “not a perfect predictor” of immunity, concluding that “the best way of knowing that you’re protected is to get the vaccines that are recommended at the time they are recommended.”

    Thus, Offit dismisses the idea of trying to avoid vaccination with a blood test as practically useless while characterizing vaccination as the best guarantee of immunity.

    But this argument is neither logically valid nor honest.

    That it’s safe to vaccinate children according to the CDC’s schedule, by his reasoning, is merely assumed.
    Legitimate Concerns about Vaccine Safety
    Today, children vaccinated according to the CDC’s schedule will have received fifty doses of fourteen vaccines by the age of six. By the age of eighteen, children may may have received upwards of seventy-two doses of nineteen vaccines.

    As acknowledged by the Institute of Medicine in a 2013 report, no studies have been done to test the entire vaccination schedule to determine the long-term effects of the cumulative number of vaccines and their ingredients, which include the known neurotoxins aluminum and mercury.

    (Aluminum is used in some vaccines as an adjuvant, or a substance intended to provoke a stronger immune response, i.e., an increased level of antibodies. Mercury is used as a preservative. Specifically, the preservative thimerosal is about half ethylmercury by weight. It was included in numerous childhood vaccines until the turn of the century, when it was removed from most after it became publicly known that the CDC’s schedule was exposing children to cumulative levels of mercury that exceeded the government’s own safety guidelines. Multi-dose vials of the inactivated influenza vaccine, which is recommended for pregnant women and infants as young as six months, still contain thimerosal.)

    Naturally, the large number of vaccine doses and the lack of safety studies, coupled with alarming rates of chronic disease and developmental disorders among children, is a cause of concern for many parents. The idea that they should try to avoid unnecessary vaccinations is certainly a reasonable one.

    Yet in his response to these parents, not even the slightest effort is made by Offit to address the question of safety. That it’s safe to vaccinate children according to the CDC’s schedule, by his reasoning, is merely assumed.

    That, of course, is the fallacy of begging the question. But Offit’s fallacies don’t end there.

    … during the mid to late 1980s, about 40 percent of measles cases were occurring in vaccinated schoolchildren, according to a study published in the journal of the American Medical Association, JAMA, in 1990.
    Vaccine Failure
    To strengthen his characterization of vaccines as the best guarantee of immunity, Offit highlights cases in which vaccinated individuals did not have a protective antibody titer and yet were still immune to measles.

    Naturally, he doesn’t mention that the outbreak he speaks of was to a much greater extent characterized by large numbers of children who were vaccinated and yet who still got measles.

    Bringing up the phenomenon known as “vaccine failure” just wouldn’t do, given his purpose of persuading parents to vaccinate their children strictly according to the CDC’s schedule.

    In fact, during the mid to late 1980s, about 40 percent of measles cases were occurring in vaccinated schoolchildren, according to a study published in the journal of the American Medical Association, JAMA, in 1990.

    Most of these cases were attributed to what is known as “primary vaccine failure”, which refers to the failure of the vaccine to confer immunity. Another possible explanation was “secondary vaccine failure”, which refers to the waning effect of vaccine-conferred immunity.

    For outbreaks occurring in the year 1989, according to a paper published in Clinical Microbiology Reviews in 1995, “Approximately 80% of the affected school-age children were appropriately vaccinated.” As prior studies had shown, “epidemics of measles can be sustained in school-age populations despite their having very high vaccination rates.”

    Among the explanations for this were both primary and secondary vaccine failure.

    Until that time, a single dose of measles vaccine was recommended for children by the CDC, to be administered between the ages of twelve and fifteen months. It was precisely because measles outbreaks were occurring in highly vaccinated populations, however, that the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) began considering adding a second dose to the schedule, to be administered between the ages of four and six years.

    As the CDC itself explains in its Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) of June 14, 2013, “measles outbreaks among school-aged children who had received 1 dose of measles vaccine prompted ACIP in 1989 to recommend that all children receive 2 doses of measles-containing vaccine, preferably as MMR vaccine.”

    Moreover, the CDC openly acknowledges that for most children who’ve received the first dose of measles vaccine, the second dose is unnecessary.

    In the CDC’s own words (with my bold emphasis), “The second dose of measles-containing vaccine primarily was intended to induce immunity in the small percentage of persons who did not seroconvert after vaccination with the first dose of vaccine (primary vaccine failure).”

    Offit’s argument is that since a negative antibody titer after the first dose is not necessarily indicative of a lack of immunity, therefore parents should just go ahead and get their child the second dose, too. But that argument doesn’t make any sense. It’s a non sequitur fallacy. The conclusion simply does not follow from the premise.

    Rather, the conclusion that follows, in the case of the measles vaccine, is that parents who think that the second dose might provide no additional benefit and would hence pose an unnecessary risk for their child are probably correct in their assessment.

    … for the purposes of licensure by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), vaccine manufacturers are not required to demonstrate that their product is actually protective against the target disease.
    The FDA’s Unscientific Surrogate Marker of Immunity
    The second part of the argument presented by Paul Offit on behalf of the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia is that, in the case of other pathogens such as rotavirus and pertussis, a high concentration of antibodies in the blood is not a good indicator of immunity.

    It does not follow, however, that there’s no point in getting a blood test to determine antibody titer.

    To illustrate, if a child has not yet received any doses of pertussis vaccine and yet has a high antibody titer, it would indicate that the child has already been exposed to and successfully mounted an immune response against the bacterial infection, hence rendering vaccination an unnecessary risk.

    Nevertheless, Offit is correct to conclude that, for vaccinated children, there is little use in parents getting a blood test to determine antibody titer. But that’s just because of the differences between natural and vaccine-conferred immunity.

    The example of pertussis is salient. Natural immunity to pertussis confers both cell-mediated (Th1) and mucosal immunity (Th17), whereas vaccination skews the immune system toward an antibody response (Th2). And as observed in a paper published in February 2019 in the Journal of the Pediatric Infectious Diseases Society, “The Th17/Th1 response prevents infection and disease and also provides longer-lasting protection than does the Th1/Th2 response.”

    In other words, the immunity conferred by natural infection is superior to that conferred by the vaccine.

    In light of that acknowledged fact, now consider the fact that, for the purposes of licensure by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), vaccine manufacturers are not required to demonstrate that their product is actually protective against the target disease. Instead, the FDA uses antibody titers as a surrogate measure of immunity, which is unscientific precisely for the reason given by Paul Offit and the CHOP: antibody titers are not necessarily evidence of immunity.

    As an example, take Infarix, the brand name for the diphtheria, tetanus, and acellular pertussis vaccine (DTaP) produced by GlaxoSmithKline Biologics (GSK). The pertussis component was approved by the FDA on the basis of blood tests to measure the antibody response to the pertussis antigens included in the vaccine.

    The FDA did so even though, as GSK itself admits right on the package insert for Infarix, “The role of the different components produced by B. pertussis in either the pathogenesis of, or the immunity to, pertussis is not well understood. There is no well established serological correlate of protection for pertussis.” (Emphasis added.)

    In other words, they don’t really understand how immunity to pertussis works or hence how the vaccine works (although continued science is illuminating those questions, as reflected in the recent study elucidating differences between naturally acquired and vaccine-conferred immunity). What they do know is that in most children, the vaccine stimulates the production of antibodies against the included pertussis antigens, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that the vaccine confers immunity to those children.

    In short, what Offit and the CHOP fail to inform their viewers when trying to convince parents that there’s no practical use for getting antibody blood tests is that antibody production is precisely the endpoint the FDA considers for vaccine licensure as a surrogate for demonstrated immunity.

    Other inconvenient facts that Offit and the CHOP choose not to disclose to their viewers are that (1) the antibody protection conferred by vaccination lasts only two to four years, (2) vaccination does not prevent people from becoming carriers and spreading pertussis to others, and (3) mass vaccination has caused a genetic shift so that the dominant strains in circulation today lack a key antigen component of the vaccine called pertactin (PRN).

    As the CDC itself concluded in 2013 based on data from pertussis outbreaks in Washington and Vermont, “vaccinated patients had significantly higher odds than unvaccinated patients of being infected with PRN-deficient strains.” Hence, pertactin-deficient strains “may have a selective advantage in infecting DTaP-vaccinated persons.”

    Far from providing parents with a convincing argument for why they should strictly comply with the CDC’s childhood vaccine schedule, what Paul Offit and the CHOP have provided us with in this video is a strong argument for why the very process by which vaccines obtain licensure by the FDA is scientifically invalid.

    Indeed, the conclusion seems inescapable that the FDA’s use of antibody titers as a surrogate measure of immunity for the purposes of vaccine licensure amounts to scientific fraud.

    Offit and the CHOP’s Undisclosed Conflicts of Interest
    That Paul Offit and the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia would produce a piece of propaganda intended to manufacture parents’ consent for public vaccine policy should come as a surprise to no one.

    After all, Paul Offit is a vaccine industry insider who has worked for both the pharmaceutical industry and the government. In fact, he once sat on the CDC’s advisory committee, and during his time on the ACIP, he advocated the rotavirus vaccine for routine use in children. At the same time, he was working on the development of a rotavirus vaccine under a grant from the pharmaceutical giant Merck.

    The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia co-owned the patent for that rotavirus vaccine with Offit. The patent was later sold to Merck under a deal in which Offit profited handsomely. He has publicly acknowledged making “several million dollars; a lot of money” from the deal.

    In addition to profiting from the development of Merck’s RotaTeq vaccine and directing the so-called “Vaccine Education Center” at the CHOP, he also holds the hospital’s Maurice R. Hilleman Chair in Vaccinology, which was created in honor of the former senior vice president of Merck, which provided a $1.5 million endowment to the CHOP and the University of Pennsylvania to “accelerate the pace of vaccine research”.

    Naturally, Offit didn’t disclose his or CHOP’s lucrative partnership with the pharmaceutical industry when introducing himself as coming from the “Vaccine Education Center” of a children’s hospital and presenting his argument that parents should strictly comply with the CDC’s recommendations by getting their children all of the vaccine doses on the schedule.

    The Takeaways
    Paul Offit and the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia argue that there’s no practical use to parents getting blood tests for their child to determine antibody titers and that vaccination is the best guarantee of immunity. But neither of those premises are true.

    For one, in this propaganda video, Offit begs the question by presuming that its safe for children to be vaccinated strictly according to the CDC’s schedule despite no long-term clinical studies ever having been done to determine the schedule’s safety.

    For another, he characterizes the measles vaccine as conferring a long-lasting immunity even after antibody levels have waned while completely ignoring the known phenomenon of vaccine failure.

    He tries to dissuade parents from doing a blood test to avoid vaccinating unnecessarily, but the reality is that parents who believe the second dose of measles vaccine may be unnecessary for their child are likely correct, given the CDC’s acknowledgment that the second dose is specifically intended to try to stimulate a protective antibody titer among those who didn’t seroconvert after the first dose.

    The argument presented is that the lack of correlation between antibodies and immunity for some pathogens, including rotavirus and pertussis, means parents should forego blood testing and just get their children all the vaccine doses on the CDC’s schedule. But the more valid conclusion to be drawn from this lack of correlation is that, in order to get vaccines to market, the FDA colludes with the pharmaceutical industry in what is arguably scientific fraud.

    Paul Offit and the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia in this video aren’t presenting parents with the knowledge they need to know in order to make an informed choice about whether to vaccinate their children. Instead, they are issuing deceitful propaganda intended to manufacture consent for public vaccine policy, which isn’t too surprising given Offit and the hospital’s own partnership with the pharmaceutical industry.

    In a world where the Rockefellers are the leaders of the organizations and intention to bring about world genocide, where an end run has been done around citizens by passing laws forbidding objection to 5G for health reasons while no testing has been done to define its lethal nature, and where babies who have no immune system are given injections packed with deadly poisons surrounding what is supposed to be a harmless vaccine to trigger immune response where there is no immune system causing death and brain damage, NOW you tell adults they are FORCED to submit to vaccinations WHICH ARE DEATH INJECTIONS. Are people really so mind controlled here? I say to the Rockefellers et al, you first and we will supply what you need.

    I expose dangerous state propaganda, freeing minds and empowering readers with actionable knowledge to help shape a brighter future.

    In January, 2017, a 9-part docu-series called Vaccines Revealed was released for free online viewing. I watched and commented live about the series premiere in a private Facebook community I host, highlighting for others what I felt were key takeaway points. You can view my highlights from each episode below.

    Vaccines Revealed

    Vaccines Revealed consists of a series of interviews with researchers and medical professionals who question public vaccine policy and challenge official dogma about the safety and effectiveness of vaccines. There’s a whole world of information about vaccines that the government and mainstream media not only aren’t telling us, but are intent on keeping us in the dark about. This docu-series is a great antidote.

    "Being an informed consent advocate, on all forms of medical intervention, including vaccination, does not make our platform “anti-vaccine,” especially given that the research we provide the public is focused on peer-reviewed science showing the unintended and underreported adverse effects of vaccines, including research showing vaccine failure and/or equivocal efficacy. Despite this, bigoted slurs like “anti-vaxxer,” crafted to dehumanize, polarize, and create animosity, are being projected onto us, and those who support us. If history teaches us anything, this type of othering, and censorship of dissenting and alternative views and voices, leads to coercion, and sometimes even violence.

    Quote "Antivaxxers Are Killers" Programmed Into Microsoft's BING Autosuggest - Is this Hate Speech?
    Saturday, August 3rd 2019 at 5:30 pm
    Written By: Sayer Ji, Founder

    Recently, Google was caught red-handed manipulating its search results to serve a not-so-hidden agenda, both by scrubbing its results clean of natural health and vaccine skeptical information, and by rigging its autocomplete keyword phrases to disparage complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) and promote an exclusively pro-vaccine agenda.

    Now, a new investigation reveals that Bing (Microsoft’s search engine launched in 2009) is targeting the so-called “vaccine hesitant” with preprogrammed search suggestions that bully, disparage, and ultimately characterize this increasingly marginalized group as dangerous and violent against others.

    Moreover, Bing falsely claims that its “autosuggest” function is based on the volume of real searches made by others, and not arbitrary human biases and/or political agendas originating within Microsoft itself.

    For example, if you type the term “antivaxxer” into Bing, it will “autosuggest” that what others are commonly searching for are the following phrases, including “antivaxxers kill.”

    But Bing’s keyword search volume for “antivaxxers kill” is non-existent, coming up as zero through , which uses an API connected to Bing’s webmaster tools which draw from the actual volume of searches occurring on any specific topic. Incidentally, we found the same discrepancy with Google Trends data, which also shows that no one searches “antivaxxers kill.”

    This doubly confirmed null finding is not at all counterintuitive, considering that it is infinitely more likely to type questions into search engines rather than entering in affirmative statements reflecting foregone conclusions. In fact, this is why the Search Engine Manipulation Effect (SEME) is considered by some to be the most powerful behavioral effect ever uncovered: it preys on the vulnerability of the undecided, who are using search products because they believe the results are produced through machine algorithms that they presume are less fallible than human, agenda-driven selection. The SEME is so powerful, in fact, that it has been estimated to determine a quarter of the world's elections in recent years.

    And so, what is the obvious implication? Bing (like we have already shown with Google) is attempting to put very specific thoughts into the minds of its users. Here is another example for the search “antvaxxers are…”:

    Above, the search “autosuggests” include “antivaxxers are irrational, killers, and dangerous.”

    Again, we must ask: are these search suggestions reflective of searches others are actually making? According to KeywordKeg, the answer is NO in all 3 cases:

    And how about Google trends? Negative, in all three cases as well.

    What would possess Microsoft/Bing to stoop to this level of dehumanizing and bigoted rhetoric? The slur “anti-vaxxer” has already become a frighteningly effective vector of dehumanization. Why weaponize it further by associating it with terms like “killer” and “murderer”? If it were not for the fact that Microsoft founder Bill Gates himself said “antivaxxers” “kill children” in a 2011 CNN interview with Sanjay Gupta, it would sound like a ‘wild conspiracy theory’ to suggest that Bing has been neurolinguistically pre-programmed with hate speech against those who advocate for vaccine safety and skepticism towards the vaccine industry and their untoward influence on media, science, medicine, and government health policy.

    With the recent wave of censorship against pro-health freedom, pro-informed consent, pro-science, and pro-parental right related advocacies related to vaccination, it’s never been a better time than now to support independent media.

    When I first encountered that Mary Sherman story, it was because the first incident that led me to wonder about the official stories we are given was the JFK Assassination. I have been reading about these questions for many years.

    The claims of Judyth Baker (story here) were linked to a conspiracy related to vaccines. Her story is that she was recruited to create a weapon that would introduce a virulent cancer via injection and was part of a plan to assassinate Castro. The interconnections between Lee Harvey Oswald (as a protector of Kennedy and scapegoat for the assassination) and the plans to over throw Castro are indicated in her story.

    Some have debunked her story (as in details here.

    Ed Haslam believes her story and it supports his evidence. If she is fabricating, does that discount his work? One may have to sift through a lot of mixed truth and lies to reach a conclusion. Judyth Baker was apparently added to Ed Haslom's SECOND book edition.

    The book by Ed Haslam has intrigued investigators in other forums and discussion leads to other stories like this one that support his evidence without defending her work:
    Quote John Simkin said:
    Posted August 24, 2007
    Edward Haslam covers many different subjects in his book that may or may not be linked to the death of Dr. Mary Sherman. One of the most interesting pieces of information concerns a report published by the American Medical Association. Haslam quotes USA Today as saying: “Men born between 1948 and 1957 have three times as much cancer not related to smoking as men born in the late 1800s… The study’s researchers insist the increase cannot be explained by smoking, better diagnosis, or an aging population.” The article, published on 9th April, 1994, quotes U.S. Public Health Service official Devera Lee Davies as saying: “There’s something else going on.”

    Haslam argues that the increase in cancer could be linked to the polio epidemic in the early 1950s. The first polio vaccine was developed in 1952 by Jonas Salk at the University of Pittsburgh, and announced to the world on April 12, 1955.

    Haslam writes about a researcher called Bernice Eddy. She carried out an experiment where she injected the polio vaccine into monkeys. They immediately fell paralyzed in their cages. Eddy realized that the virus in the vaccine was not dead as promised, but still alive and ready to breed. Eddy reported her findings to the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Her research received some publicity but the medical establishment insisted that the mass inoculation should go ahead. Dr. Alton Ochsner, Dr. Mary Sherman’s boss, joined in the debate by announcing he intended to inject his own grandchildren with the new vaccine. Eddy was roundly condemned for her comments and was taken off polio research.

    However, Eddy was right, within a few days children all over America who had been given this vaccine fell ill with polio. Two of Ochsner’s grandchildren developed the disease. One died and the other one survived. The Secretary of Health, Oveta Hobby and the Director of the NIH were forced to resign.

    The Salk vaccine was withdrawn and a second weaker vaccine developed by Albert Sabin was deployed instead. This new vaccine was used all over the world. I, like I suspect most members of this forum, received their injection while at school. In time, polio ceased to be a killer disease.

    Meanwhile, Eddy continued her research. She joined forces with Dr. Sarah Stewart who worked at the National Cancer Institute. In 1957 they became the first people to identify the polyoma virus (SV40), which produced several types of cancer in a variety of small mammals and that it can be transferred from one individual to another.

    In 1959 Eddy and Stewart began to look closely at the Sabin polio vaccine that was being given to children all over the world. The vaccine’s manufacturers had grown their polio viruses on the kidney’s of monkeys. They speculated that when they removed the polio virus from the monkeys’ kidneys, they also removed an unknown number of other monkey viruses. If they were right, the world had been inoculating an entire generation of Americans with cancer-causing monkey viruses?

    In October, 1960, Bernice Eddy went public with their findings at the New York Cancer Society. The NIH immediately took steps to silence her. They took away her lab, destroyed the animals she was carrying out experiments on, put her under a gagging order and prevented her from attending professional meetings.

    The research of Eddy and Stewart was backed up by that of Laurella McClelland working in Philadelphia. As McClelland was working for a vaccine manufacturer, this information was covered up at the time. However, on 26th July, 1961, the New York Times reported that two vaccine manufacturers were withdrawing their polio vaccines until they can eliminate a monkey virus. Seven months later another article in the New York Times suggested that there was a possibility of cancer in the polio vaccine. However, no one picked up on this information and the idea of children being vaccinated with cancer never entered the public consciousness.

    Meanwhile the US government arranged for secret experiments to take place to produce a new polio vaccine that did not cause cancer. Haslam speculates that Dr. Mary Sherman was involved in this research and that her death might be linked to this. (I will explain this later).

    Haslam does not mention that recent scientific develops have confirmed that Eddy and Stewart were right about their belief that there was a connection between the polio vaccine and the cancer epidemic. Scientists have discovered that the DNA of SV40 in monkeys is very similar to the DNA of cancer tumors in humans.

    Haslam does not mention another important possible link with the assassination of JFK. If people like Dr. Alton Ochsner were aware as early as 1961 that it was possible to inject humans with SV40 in order to create a cancer tumor. Is it possible that this is what they did to Jack Ruby?

    Tim Gratz said in response:
    Well, John, that is speculation but I have to acknowledge the most interesting medical history in your post, a history most Americans of my age (i.e. senior citizens) will relate to. I remember well the polio scare of the mid-1950s. In fact my uncle had polio and died at an early age. Great post! Excellent research work.
    The main point in my posting that a large number of people have died because of this polio vaccine cover-up. I was one of those who received the early version of the polio vaccine. So did my wife who is currently dying of terminal cancer. Many of my friends have already died of this disease. Yet it would seem that the companies continued to carry out its vaccine program because they did not want to damage their profits. That is the real scandal of this story.

    In Australia:


    "A federal government agency knowingly released polio vaccine contaminated with a monkey virus in the 1960s that has since been linked to a range of cancers, including mesothelioma.

    The virus contaminated at least four batches of vaccine totalling almost three million doses between 1956 and 1962.

    Two of the batches were released after testing positive to contamination. The other two were released before tests could be done. An unknown number of earlier batches were also almost certainly contaminated.

    An investigation by The Age has found documents from the Commonwealth Serum Laboratories which reveal bosses there released one batch of about 700,000 doses of contaminated vaccine in 1962 on the grounds that "much vaccine issued in the past was probably similarly contaminated".

    Australia's leading experts on the virus, which is known as simian virus 40 or SV40, have found traces of it in human tumour cells and are calling for urgent funding to clarify the links.

    Commonwealth Serum Laboratories knew from its own internal research that the monkey virus was a potential cause of cancer in humans. The research, which was never made public, was carried out in August 1962, while contaminated batches of vaccine were still being released. Tests carried out at the time also showed monkey virus contamination of some of the "seed" polio virus used to produce all Salk polio vaccines between 1956 and 1962. ...".
    Jim Marrs was a deep researcher into the JFK Assassination.
    (May 7, 2005) Jim Marrs joins William Henry to interview Ed Haslam, the author of Mary, Ferrie and the Monkey Virus on Whitley Strieber's Dreamland.

    (This stream seems to be hanging up and cannot find another link)

    One wonders WTF(acts) until the head feels like it may explode? The facts become stranger than fiction and what part of all is the case????? What to believe? One needs a way to find the truth in all the intricate series of coincidences and to vet the people with their claims.

    This ability to uncover crucial info is what is being blocked. The facts are obscured so we will just receive a version approved. And as always, "who benefits" must be weighed. Ed Haslam elaborates below beyond the Mary Sherman book. This was at a conference actually arranged by Judyth Baker. He did drink her story in but IMO some of what he says here is important....
