    Forced Vaccination Coming in California?
    BY ANH-USA ON FEBRUARY 7, 2017
    http://www.anh-usa.org/forced-vaccin...in-california/
    STOP POISONING OURSELVES
    Quote The reality, hard as it is to imagine, is that we must fight fascist medicine in one of our largest states—and elsewhere. State-based Action Alerts!

    Late last year, State Senator Richard Pan of California introduced a bill allegedly aimed at ensuring a child’s right to quality healthcare, childcare, and education. This being Sen. Pan, let’s read between the lines.

    Sen. Pan, you may remember, is the lawmaker who sponsored SB 277, California’s law that removed all non-medical exemptions to vaccines. We think his new bill, falsely disguised as an uncontroversial “Children’s Bill of Rights,” is simply a stepping stone to get what he and the vaccine manufacturers wanted all along—mandatory vaccination for all children.

    Remember that SB 277 applies only to children attending public and private schools—homeschooled children are not part of the law. And other children are able to get medical exemptions from doctors brave enough to endure the media frenzy or the licensing threats that ensue when they write exemptions.

    The Medical Board of California is already attacking doctors who don’t toe the line. Recall that Dr. Bob Sears is facing charges of gross negligence from the medical board for daring to write a letter recommending that a two-year-old be excused from vaccinations because his mother reported that the child had serious adverse reactions to previous immunizations. The point is to scare other doctors from writing medical exemptions.

    That’s one group of unvaccinated children down. What about the homeschoolers?

    That’s where Sen. Pan’s “Children’s Bill of Rights” comes in. If a child has a right to basic medical care, this could very well be interpreted to include vaccinations. If the parents of a homeschooled child decide to delay vaccination, or to skip certain shots, the state could argue that the parents are withholding necessary medical treatment and force vaccination on the child.

    There are few legal protections for parents in these scenarios. Adults can refuse certain medical treatments for themselves for whatever reason, but with children it’s a whole different ballgame. To refuse what the state deems a necessary medical treatment is grounds for removing the child from the custody of the parents—and turning him or her over to the state.

    The zeal of Sen. Pan to impose a vaccine regime on unwilling Californians must be checked. It is shameful (and ironic) to use a “Children’s Bill of Rights” as a vehicle to stamp out the last remaining rights of parents to refuse vaccination for their children. What else will the California government determine is best for children, whether parents agree or not? This is an incredibly slippery slope.

    This isn’t just an issue for California residents. California often acts as a model for other states. If a mandatory vaccination regime gets enacted in California, it will only embolden other state legislatures to do the same.

    State-based Action Alert! https://secure3.convio.net/aahf/site...Action&id=3132

    Is there a website which will allow for verification and reading the exact Executive Order so we can see the wording, and not just the Houston Leader's News Page interpretation?

    ==Up Date==

    Going to the official website: https://www.whitehouse.gov/briefing-...ential-actions

    I see no mention of such an order. Have they not updated the whitehouse.gov page?

    Or is there a more recent page which posts current signing(s) ?

    Somebody help us out here.
    I've edited my post - it's apparently not accurate. And I added the following to my original post:

    - APPARENTLY the above news article does NOT reflect the Executive Orders shown on the Whitehouse.gov website. So while I'll keep the above link there (will be interesting to see if they modify/delete the article, I'll also add two items:

    1. This is another article showing that draft Executive Orders are apparently being leaked. http://www.prweb.com/releases/2017/02/prweb14044558.htm

    2. This is the White House Executive Orders page (note all the 1's and 0's). https://11111011100.whitehouse.gov/b...ecutive-orders

    Bob and others - So sorry for jumping the gun. Thanks for being a watchdog. Still hoping for this vaccine ban to go through, and perhaps it will be more than just the MMR vaccine, and will include ALL vaccines with the thimerasol (mercury) and other harmful additives.

    "Every Human Vaccine Tested Was Contaminated by Unsafe Levels of Metals and Debris Linked to Cancer and Autoimmune Disease, New Study Reports"
    Dirty Vaccines: New Study Reveals Prevalence of Contaminants
    by Celeste McGovern
    Published February 6, 2017
    http://www.thevaccinereaction.org/20...-contaminants/

    Quote Every Human Vaccine Tested Was Contaminated by Unsafe Levels of Metals and Debris Linked to Cancer and Autoimmune Disease, New Study Reports
    Researchers examining 44 samples of 30 different vaccines found dangerous contaminants, including red blood cells in one vaccine and metal toxicants in every s
    ingle sample tested—except in one animal vaccine.

    Using extremely sensitive new technologies not used in vaccine manufacturing, Italian scientists reported they were “baffled” by their discoveries which included single particles and aggregates of organic debris including red cells of human or possibly animal origin and metals including lead, tungsten, gold, and chromium, that have been linked to autoimmune disease and leukemia.

    In the study, published last week in the International Journal of Vaccines and Vaccination, the researchers led by Antonietta Gatti, of the National Council of Research of Italy and the Scientific Director of Nanodiagnostics, say their results “show the presence of micro- and nano-sized particulate matter composed of inorganic elements in vaccine samples” not declared in the products’ ingredients lists.

    Lead particles were found in the cervical cancer vaccines, Gardasil and Cervarix, for example, and in the seasonal flu vaccine Aggripal manufactured by Novartis as well as in the Meningetec vaccine meant to protect against meningitis C.

    Samples of an infant vaccine called Infarix Hexa (against diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, hepatitis B, poliomyelitis and haemophilus influenzae type B) manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline was found to contain stainless steel, tungsten and a gold-zinc aggregate.

    Other metal contaminants included platinum, silver, bismuth, iron, and chromium. Chromium (alone or in alloy with iron and nickel) was identified in 25 of the human vaccines from Italy and France that were tested.

    GSK’s Fluarix vaccine for children three years and older contained 11 metals and aggregates of metals. Similar aggregates to those identified in the vaccines have been shown to be prevalent in cases of leukemia, the researchers noted.

    Many of the vaccines contained iron and iron alloys which, according to the researchers, “can corrode and the corrosion products exert a toxicity affecting the tissues.”

    The researchers supply an image of an area in a drop of Sanofi Pasteur MSD’s Repevax (diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus, polio) vaccine “where the morphology of red cells – we cannot tell whether they are human or animal- is clearly visible” along with the presence of “debris” composed of aluminum, bromine, silicon, potassium and titanium.

    Feligen, the only veterinary vaccine tested in the 44 total vaccines sampled, proved to be the only sample free from inorganic contamination.

    The investigation revealed aluminum and sodium chloride, the usual component of saline, as was expected, because they are named ingredients of most vaccines. Using a Field Emission Gun Environmental Electron Scanning Microscope, the researchers produced photos of this aluminum salt which formed white crystalline branches similar to frost on a windowpane on the top of the droplets of vaccine liquid. A German-made vaccine against allergies produced a layer of inorganic salts so thick that the researchers could not penetrate the drop to detect other particulate contaminants.

    Aluminum has a documented neurotoxicity all by itself. The French veterinary vaccines exclude it for this reason. The human ones don’t. The researchers express concern about synergy of multiple toxins added to this known neurotoxin. “It is a well-known fact in toxicology that contaminants exert a mutual, synergic effect, and as the number of contaminants increases, the effects grow less and less predictable. The more so when some substances are unknown.”

    “The quantity of foreign bodies detected and, in some cases, their unusual chemical compositions baffled us,” the researchers note. “In most circumstances, the combinations detected are very odd as they have no technical use, cannot be found in any material handbook and look like the result of the random formation occurring, for example, when waste is burnt. In any case, whatever their origin, they should not be present in any injectable medicament, let alone in vaccines, more in particular those meant for infants.”

    Undesirable impact
    The study explains that these foreign injected impurities may explain a vast array of apparently unrelated adverse events associated with vaccination from headaches and seizures to fatigue, muscle pain, paralysis and sudden infant death syndrome. More likely than not, they speculate, vaccine contaminants will “have a more serious impact on very small organisms like those of children.”

    Once inside a body, foreign material in a vaccine shot, whether it is meant to be there as in the case of an aluminum, or not, in the case of contaminants, launches the formidable immune system into action.

    As with anything small and foreign, its reaction to vaccine ingredients is potent, poorly understood, unpredictable, and as the Italian researchers say, may be “undesirable.” The immune system may dispatch an army of large white blood cells called macrophages to engulf the foreign bodies and contain them in swellings and granulomas at the injection site. But if the contaminants are swept away in the blood’s circulation to any distant site or organ including the microbiota, which regulate numerous functions including the immune system, their effect could be felt long after they covertly entered the body.

    In some cases, the immune system my initiate an inflammatory assault against what it perceives as invader. This may include the launch of a host of players called cytokines. Some of these chemical messengers like interleukin-6 are incriminated in autism.

    Because these contaminants may persist in the body and stimulate the immune system, they may induce chronic inflammation and can manifest as autoimmune diseases when the immune system turns on its host’s own cells as in multiple sclerosis or type 1 diabetes.

    It’s also been shown that the contaminants found in the vaccines can enter cell nuclei and interact with DNA, the researchers note. No one knows what that can do.

    Dark History
    Vaccines have a long and sordid history of contamination. In 1955 batches of polio vaccine containing live polio virus infected and paralysed hundreds of children. The tragedy became known as the Cutter Incident for the laboratory where the vaccines had passed safety tests with flying colors.

    But there are dozens of other “incidents” which would better be called acts of criminal negligence, including:

    The polio vaccine doled out between 1955 and 1963 was contaminated with simian virus 40 (SV40) from monkey kidney cells used to produce the vaccine. It’s been linked to the growing epidemic of cancer.
    In 2007, Merck & Company, Inc. recalled 1.2 million doses of Hib vaccines due to contamination with bacteria called cereus, a potentially lethal food-poisoning bug.
    In 2009, more than 40,000 doses of a meningitis C vaccine for babies were withdrawn from the British market when they were found to be contaminated with blood-poisoning bacteria, S aureus.
    In 2010, deep sequence analysis of eight different live attenuated virus vaccines revealed unexpected viral sequences in three of them: retrovirus avian leukosis was found in a measles vaccine, a virus similar to simian retrovirus was identified in Rotateq anti-diarrhea vaccine developed by CDC consultant Paul Offit, and the entire genome sequence of porcine cirovirus1 was found in Rotarix leading the FDA to suspend the rotavirus vaccine.
    In 2014, The U.S. Food and Drug Administration ordered GlaxoSmithKline to review the manufacturing operation of its flu vaccine when it found microbiological contamination of products purporting to be sterile.
    In 2013, Merck & Company, Inc. recalled one batch of Gardasil when glass particles were discovered in several phials.
    Recently it was reported that Sanofi Pasteur refused to recall its ActHIB vaccine for babies, even though it knew it was contaminated with glass shards. The FDA didn’t object.
    There are dozens of these cases, and even if vaccine manufacturers are issued multiple “warnings” action is rarely ever taken to clean the vaccine manufacture process. Since pharmaceutical companies have blanket indemnity from lawsuits for faulty vaccines, there is no incentive for them to clean up their act.

    Clear and Present Danger
    The study investigators conclude that the vaccine contamination they found is likely accidental. “Our hypothesis is that this contamination is unintentional, since it is probably due to polluted components or procedures of industrial processes (e.g. filtrations) used to produce vaccines, not investigated and not detected by the Producers.”

    Discussion about why pharmaceutical companies don’t produce clean vaccines is one thing. But the reality of vaccines as they are now is another. It doesn’t change what is being injected into millions of people today. Dangerous unintended toxins are in every one of the vaccines tested in this investigation, except one for cats.

    This research doesn’t just show that vaccines are full of crud that top scientists can’t even define. It makes a mockery of health oversight agencies like the FDA and CDC and their lies that vaccines undergo adequate safety checks and risk assessment.

    It doesn’t merely reveal that the long-term consequences of vaccinating cannot even be assessed. If anti-cancer vaccines like Gardasil and Cervarix contain cancer-causing aggregates of toxic metals, their use as a weapon against a cancer a girl has zero chance of getting before age 21 is not just useless. It is egregious abuse.

    Now, every vaccine’s claims to saving lives must be weighed against its risks of causing cancer, neurodevelopmental disease, autoimmune disease and every other immune-mediated “mystery” disorder now epidemic and soaring.

    The results of these investigations not only negate every assertion that vaccines are “safe and effective,” but they confirm that they are actually a clear and present danger.

    All About THIMEROSAL – Why the Controversy?…

    Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

    Tuesday, August 16th, 2011

    "It is VERY important to note that Thimerosal has NEVER been removed from flu shots. You get, each time, the FULL 25 micrograms of deadly-mercury." But that's just the beginning...
    http://bolenreport.com/all-about-thi...e-controversy/

    Quote This is the eighth article in a series that, for the most part, is about Mark and David Geier, and the team surrounding them’s, effort to remove, finally, Thimerosal (mercury), from medicines – especially vaccines – and the attack on them for their efforts.

    As I sifted through the issues, and consequently, the people involved in those issues, I again and again asked the question “Why doesn’t the pharmaceutical industry just make vaccines without Thimerosal?” I received a lot of different answers in the form, primarily, of hypothesis. No definite answers.

    I suspect that the answers are a combination of things we’ll talk about as we go along. But, for now, let me point out some history, lest we forget about how mankind’s institutions actually function.

    So-called “Medical Science” is really anything but.

    I have to laugh when I see one more group setting itself up as the protectors of “Evidenced Based Medicine,” or some other equally impressive sounding nonsense cliché. You only have to look as far, for instance, as the wanna-be “Czar/God of US Health Care” Stephen Barrett for an example of the self-promoting nobodies, with no qualifications, who proclaim that they, and they alone, are the authority on proper health care. Frankly, Barrett represents nothing new. There has always been a “Barrett,“ in health care.

    History shows us, quite clearly, that the “authority” figures in each medical science period, for the most part, were the biggest of fools, the most pompous of idiots, and the worst possible people to direct health care. For some reason, consistently, scum rises to the surface in our official health care systems.

    So, why should we, here in 2011 think things should be any different? Why should we think that, somehow, health care could, or would, be dominated by thinking individuals who ask the proper questions, and find solutions. Nah, that’s what we have bureaucracies like the FDA, and the CDC, for. Society seems to demand that we set up systems (agencies) to do things the dumbest way possible. Of course, the FDA and the CDC excel at that. Lawrence J. Peter said it best with his Peter Principle- “in a hierarchy every employee tends to rise to his level of incompetence”.

    Peter also said “Bureaucracy defends the status quo long past the time when the quo has lost its status.”


    With that – let’s talk about Thimerosal…

    Mercury is a deadly toxin – in any form. Deadly to any living entity. The product Thimerosal (Merthiolate) is a mercury-containing pharmaceutical compound that is 49.55% mercury. It was developed in 1927. More, unlike other forms of mercury, Thimerosal, is both water and fat soluble – meaning that it immediately penetrates into every part of the human body, and attaches itself wherever it wants. When it is injected, as in vaccines, the human body’s natural defense mechanisms that would work to catch and expel INGESTED forms of mercury, are completely bypassed allowing Thimerasol to quickly bind itself in places in the body we definitely DO NOT want it – like the brain.

    Thimerosal has been marketed as an antimicrobial agent in a range of products, including topical antiseptic solutions and antiseptic ointments for treating cuts. It was in nasal sprays, eye solutions, vaginal spermicides, and diaper rash treatments. Perhaps most importantly it is used, even now, as a preservative in vaccines and other injectable biological products, including Rho(D)-immune globulin preparations.

    Despite evidence, dating to the early 1930s, indicating Thimerosal to be potentially hazardous to humans and ineffective as an antimicrobial agent it is still being used.

    Crazy as it sounds, Thimerosal was not scrutinized as part of U.S. pharmaceutical products until the 1980s, when the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) finally recognized its demonstrated ineffectiveness and toxicity in topical pharmaceutical products, and began to eliminate it from these. In 1998, finally, the US FDA took topically used (applied to the skin) Thimerosal products off of the market – as being too dangerous.

    Insane as it sounds, the US FDA didn’t seem to have a problem with that same mercury being INJECTED directly into the human body – especially into our children. Worse, Thimerosal continues to be administered, as part of mandated immunizations and other pharmaceutical products, in the United States, and globally.

    Just to bring things up to date – let’s look at the most recent Australian study on the relationship between Autism and mercury:

    ATLANTA, Aug. 9, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Researchers from Australia have identified an ancestry of Pink Disease (Infantile Acrodynia) as a risk factor for Autism Spectrum Disorders. Pink disease was common in the first half of the 20th century …

    The new study, published July 28th in the Journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health available at http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/1...nalCode=uteh20, investigated the hypothesis that autism can result from the interaction between mercury exposure and a genetic predisposition to sensitivity to mercury. Currently, 43 peer-reviewed studies support a link between mercury and autism, and experts agree that autism is caused by the interaction of genetic susceptibility and environmental exposures.

    The Australian researchers, David Austin, Ph.D. and Kerrie Shandley investigated whether individuals with a known hypersensitivity to mercury were more likely to have descendants with an autism spectrum disorder. They surveyed 522 adult survivors of Pink Disease about the health of their grandchildren. They found that 1 in 25 of these grandchildren had an autism spectrum disorder compared to 1 in 160 children of the same ages in the general population in Australia, a staggering six-fold increase in relative risk. Dr. Austin had the following comment, “The large elevation in autism prevalence in this group of children was startling especially given that rates of other childhood disorders were at expected levels. The thing that differentiates these children from the general population, to which they were compared, is a family history of mercury sensitivity. We were simply blown away by the results.”

    Let’s get to the part about vaccines…

    After a massive uproar, beginning in roughly the year 2000, and continuing through 2004, the US branch of the vaccine industry began to offer, in the US and Canada ONLY, childhood vaccines without Thimerosal. This affected only the four million (4,000,000) children born each year in those two countries of North America. ALL other countries’ newborn, estimated at one hundred million (100,000,000) children get Thimerosal-packed, deadly-mercurized, puss-encrusted, God-only-knows-where-they-are-made, so-called-vaccines.

    In the 1990s, in the US and Canada, and the rest of the world then and now, newborns, received, during the first eighteen months of life, a total of 237.5 micrograms of deadly-mercury, in the form of Thimerosal, included as a preservative (cringe here) in the childhood vaccines injected into our children..

    It is VERY important to note that Thimerosal has NEVER been removed from flu shots. You get, each time, the FULL 25 micrograms of deadly-mercury.

    The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has set the maximum standard for exposure to mercury at .1 (point one) microgram per kilogram of body weight per day. A flu shot, for instance, has 25 micrograms of mercury in the form of Thimerosal. A person would have to weigh 250 kilograms (550 pounds) to be able to deal with the mercury in one flu shot.

    Not many newborns weigh that much (not even elephants). Pediatricians now, in 2011, demand THREE flu shots for newborns up to eighteen months – and one for the mother while she was pregnant with the child. Add that up.

    Vaccines are the mainstay-income-stream for Pediatricians.

    So, let’s take a look at the reality of the mandatory childhood vaccine schedule from the 1990s…

    237.5 micrograms of mercury in the first eighteen months? Yup. Let me show you how that works:

    Newborns get one shot: Hep B (12.5 mcg). A newborn baby, by EPA standards, would have to weigh, at the time of vaccination, two hundred and twenty-five (225) pounds to meet those EPA mercury standards.

    At sixty days: Hep B (12.5 mcg), DTP (25 mcg), and HIB (25 mcg) – for a total of seven vaccines (grouped) with 62.5 mcg of deadly-mercury. A two month old baby, by EPA standards, would have to weigh, at the time of vaccination, one thousand three hundred and twenty-five (1,325) pounds to meet those EPA mercury standards.

    At one hundred twenty days: DTP (25 mcg), and HIB (25 mcg) – for a total of six vaccines (grouped) with 50 mcg of deadly-mercury. A newborn baby, by EPA standards, would have to weigh, at the time of vaccination, one thousand one hundred (1,100) pounds to meet those EPA mercury standards.

    At one hundred eighty days: The same series as at 60 days – Hep B (12.5 mcg), DTP (25 mcg), and HIB (25 mcg) – for a total of seven vaccines (grouped) with 62.5 mcg of deadly-mercury. A six month old baby, by EPA standards, would have to weigh, at the time of vaccination, one thousand three hundred and twenty-five (1,325) pounds to meet those EPA mercury standards.

    At fifteen to eighteen months: DTP (25 mcg), and HIB (25 mcg) – for a total of six vaccines (grouped) with 50 mcg of deadly-mercury. An eighteen month old baby, by EPA standards, would have to weigh, at the time of vaccination, one thousand one hundred (1,100) pounds to meet those EPA mercury standards.

    Just think – Two hundred thirty seven point five (237.5) mcg of MANDATORY deadly mercury injected into your child in the first eighteen months of life.

    Is anyone surprised that the Autism rates increased radically? So did the rates for Asthma, ADD/ADHD, and many other problems.

    What’s the worldwide childhood vaccine schedule now, in 2011?

    It is all of the above and more. Of course, the vaccine apologists, like the CDC, the pseudo-skeptics and the “neurodiversity” nitwits, will delight in telling you “Thimerosal was removed from childhood vaccines in 2004, blah, blah, blah…” But what they will NOT mention is that that deadly mercury concoction was ONLY removed from the childhood vaccines distributed to the four million (4,000,000) newborns, each year, in the US in Canada. They, slyly, forget to mention the, to them, unnoticeable one hundred million (100,000,000) newborns in the rest of the world. Conveniently, they forget the DEMAND that the child get THREE flu shots (25 mcg each) during that same period.

    It is time for a little VERY DARK humor…

    I have met a lot of parents of Autistic children. I commend them for just being there for their child. With them, I see what heroes are made of. I could never make light of their life tasks – and I will not.

    But, there are parts of this situation that need to be treated with ridicule. I am about to give you a sample.

    For instance, it is well known that Pediatricians are the front line in the vaccine scenario foisted on the public. The vaccine industry very much kisses up to Pediatricians, with travel-paid “conferences” in Hawaii, Paris, Rio De Janeiro, where they are given their new lines for the script they memorize to use on the parents of patients.

    One common story they are taught to use is the claim that “The 237.5 micrograms of mercury needs to be divided up on a daily basis over the life of the child. If the child lives to be eighty than the daily average amount is far less than the EPA mercury standard…”

    Well, yeah…

    So, if your doctor tells you that story then offer to do a “Heavy Metal Exchange” with him/her using the same logic. Offer to exchange lead for mercury.

    Point out to your pediatrician that a .45 caliber ACP bullet contains 230 grains of lead. One grain of lead is equal to 64.8 milligrams. Offer to exchange, on a right now basis, one 230 grain lead application, delivered from four feet away, for each 25 micrograms of mercury applied to your child. If they hesitate, point out that a 230 grain bullet using the same mercury formula they explained to you, could hardly do them damage, because, dividing it up every day for eighty years would give them very little each day. Ask them if they’d prefer a .45 ACP hollow point or a full metal jacket – their choice. Explain to them that a “full metal jacket” round is kind of like a “booster shot.”

    Hey, logic is logic… Dark humor or not.

    Stay tuned.

    Why the CDC Whistleblower (William Thompson) Called Brian Hooker PhD…

    The background story behind “Vaxxed – From Cover Up to Catastrophe…”

    Long before the CDC Whistleblower William Thompson appeared on the scene, they were under heavy fire from Brian Hooker…

    He struck terror into CDC hearts…

    Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen
    http://bolenreport.com/cdc-whistlebl...an-hooker-phd/

    Quote William Thompson didn’t just randomly pick up the telephone one day and call somebody about CDC troubles. He called Brian Hooker.

    Why Hooker?

    Brian Hooker PhD was well-known to the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). He had been pursuing information from them, one way or another, for years. He has a son with Autism and he wanted to know how that happened. And when he asked the CDC for specific information they blew him off.

    Since Hooker is a research scientist, himself, he knew EXACTLY which questions to ask about the so-called CDC studies claiming to prove no relationship between Vaccines and Autism – and he didn’t like the CDC’s answers.

    And so it began…


    So, why did William Thompson, high up in the CDC structure, call Brian Hooker? Because the name “Brian Hooker” permeated CDC thinking – giving many, I’d say, nightmares. He was their conscience.

    The damn guy just would NOT go away. They couldn’t blow him off…

    And Brian had found POWERFUL allies…

    Those allies knew how to grab the CDC by the throat. There was a whole team behind Hooker. I wrote a six part article series about all this back in 2011. Every bit of the information in those articles is RELEVANT right now.

    Those six articles explain why, as we heard after Trump’s election, that “CDC Employees Are Terrified of the upcoming VACCINE SAFETY COMMISSION…”

    You bet they are. And well they should be – for a Vaccine Safety Commission on the right track is going to set up a LOT of people for criminal indictment.

    Starting back in 2011…

    In the six-part article series titled “The CDC has known all along how dangerous vaccines are – and has covered it up…” I laid out, for the readers, years of gathered information.

    The story parts:

    (1) the Starting Point,

    Brian Hooker sues the CDC using attorneys Bob Reeves and Jim Turner

    (2) the Lawsuit Against the CDC,

    The details of the lawsuit including the analysis of the CDC’s bogus “five studies” claiming no relationship between vaines and autism.

    (3) What the Government Agencies Actually Knew,

    and WHY they were, and are, covering it up.

    (4) What The “Vaccine Construction” Is and Does,

    makes the important point “Children are a nation’s greatest asset” and the vaccine stakeholders do not care. They want the money.

    (5) Using the Federal Court System to Uncover the Criminal Conspiracy …

    the use of the Judiciary branch of the US Government to rein in the activities of an out-of-control federal agency – the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) – a Division of the US Department of Health and Human Services.

    (6) Tension Increases – Federal Judge Orders CDC to Produce Secret Documents…

    focuses on WHY this lawsuit was so important. Because the whole world relies on the CDC’s credibility – and they lie every day.

    ALL of this activity, reported to various US Congressmen, resulted in official hearings being scheduled before the Congressional Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

    But that hearing turned out to be a debacle – which was a whole additional story of infighting and betrayal within the autism community…

    So the problem is STILL with us.

    But there are those of us who NEVER give up…

    Stay tuned…

    Kennedy and De Niro Throw Down the Gauntlet Against Vaccines…
    By Kent Heckenlively, J.D.
    http://bolenreport.com/kennedy-de-ni...tlet-vaccines/

    Quote If you are of a certain age and were ever interested in politics you probably went through a stage where you read everything you possibly could about Senator Robert Kennedy. I know I did. I still do.

    The reason Robert Kennedy, Sr. continues to attract and inspire us is because he demonstrated a continuing capacity to learn. This was made clear to me in a recent book, Bobby Kennedy: The Making of a Liberal Icon by Larry Tye. Kennedy demonstrated that rare trait in a politician of being moved by the times and circumstances in which he lived.

    This same trait has been shown by his son, Robert Kennedy, Jr., in his crusade to clean up our waterways from mercury, and now with his greater mission of protecting children from massive corruption at the Centers for Disease Control regarding vaccines and autism.

    Heroes still live among us.

    You don’t have to be interested in politics to feel like you know Robert De Niro. You just have to be living on planet Earth. From the Godfather movies to Goodfellas, Awakenings, and his comedic turns in movies like Meet the Parents, De Niro is our consummate tough guy, and as the years have passed, he seems almost like a conscience for the world.

    Supporting the two men in a ‘war room’ nearby were Del Bigtree, the producer of VAXXED: From Cover-up to Catastrophe, autism activist, Becky Estepp, Dr. Brian Hooker, Lynne Redwood, and many others. One participant, Jimmy said “Thank you, Bobby Kennedy. Thank you Bob De Niro, you are kicking some serious ass out there.”

    These two amazing men have joined forces and at the National Press Club in Washington D.C.

    Before their talk they fielded more than 20 interviews with local and national and local media.

    In an interview prior to their talk at the National Press Club, De Niro explained how he came to be part of this project. He explained how the documentary VAXXED, caused such an uproar when it was accepted at the Tribeca Film Festival and that because of the controversy he made the decision to pull the film.

    But that wasn’t the end of the story for Di Niro.

    He came to know Robert Kennedy, Jr. and viewed other films, like Trace Amounts, and became convinced that more needed to be done. He said that more research needed to be done on vaccines, and noted that vaccines do not get the same type of safety testing as other pharmaceutical products.

    Kennedy stepped in next, noting the great danger of mercury in vaccines, noting that 48 million flu shots filled with mercury are given to pregnant women each year, and that this is certainly behind the rise in conditions like autism, allergies, and auto-immune diseases.

    Kennedy went on to say that he considered this to be journalistic malpractice, since journalists were not aggressively challenging the Centers for Disease Control and so he had a challenge. Kennedy was offering any journalist $100,000 if they could produce a single study showing that the injection of mercury into children was safe. He stated that his goal was to create an open public discussion on this issue.

    Another member of the group was Nico La Hood, the district attorney for Houston, Texas. In a statement released earlier he said, “Many challengers say to me, ‘correlation is not causation.’ In my world, correlation means investigation. But to them, correlation means ignorance. That makes no sense to me. What is everyone afraid of? Let’s follow the evidence wherever it leads.”

    Kennedy, De Niro, and La Hood were joined at the National Press Club by television news reporter and host of the show, Full Measure, Sharyl Attkisson. She opened the press conference by showing a clip from former head of the National Institutes of Health, Dr. Bernadine Healy, saying that the question of vaccines and autism has not been asked and answered, and that researchers were scared of investigating the issue.

    Now, to the meat of the issue…

    After Attkisson, Kennedy kicked off discussion by telling how he came to this issue. He’d been suing power companies for the emission of mercury by coal-fired power plants and the effect they were having on fish populations. As he spoke across the country on this issue, he talked about how a group of mothers of vaccine-injured autism kept talking to him about mercury in the vaccines. He talked about 240 studies that show the damage mercury can cause and is neurotoxic to our children. These studies show that vaccines are linked to the cascade of neuro-developmental problems in our children.

    He said the CDC shows that 43% of our children have some form of chronic disease. This epidemic started in 1989 according to CDC.

    “If it’s not the thimerosal in vaccines, then what is it?” Kennedy said is the question journalists need to be asking. Kennedy said that while there are a number of potential chemicals which may also be involved, but thimerosal provides the best explanation.

    He showed 81 studies that linked thimerosal to autism. He said there are no studies which say thimerosal is NOT linked to autism.

    Kennedy said there are four different studies which say that the CDC is a cesspool of corruption.

    The CDC owns or co-owns 56 different vaccine patents. The CDC has been telling reporters that the studies are out there, but no journalist has ever seen them. Journalists are not looking at what the studies actually say.

    After asking for stories from the community, within a few hours they had more than 6,000 stories from parents that their child changed after a vaccination. Failure to look at these stories is akin to religious zealotry. It says that doctors know better what happened to their children than their parents.

    Kennedy offered a $100,000 challenge to show that it is safe to inject pregnant women or infants with the levels of mercury that are currently in the flu vaccine.

    Kennedy says that he has a panel of leading scientists who will judge whether the study is valid. He went onto say that democracy requires a system of checks and balances and it’s the job of journalists to challenge them.

    Big Pharma is NOT our friend…

    In the past few years the pharmaceutical industry has suffered more than 8 billion dollars in court costs for misuse of their products. He talked about how the pharmaceutical companies spend twice as much money lobbying Congress than the oil and gas industry. And we can’t count on lawyers, because the passage of the 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act prevents pharmaceutical companies from being sued for vaccine injuries. And now the pharmaceutical industry pays for the majority of advertising of the nightly news.

    Feel free to call this group anything you want, The Avengers, Guardians of the Galaxy, X-Men, or even, The Justice League, but we have some first rate fighters on our side. Maybe we even have the new President of the United States on our side.

    But these heroes can’t do it alone.

    They aren’t Superman or Batman.

    They are simply flesh and blood human beings who are making an immense sacrifice to do what they believe is right. And our enemy has BILLIONS of DOLLARS to spend against us, convincing the American people to remain asleep to the dangers of vaccines. But the great American people are beginning to wake up and see the wickedness and evil which has surrounded their children. And I believe they will fight.

    Del Bigtree said in conclusion, “This is a victorious day. But it’s because of finding common ground, staying focused on that. This is ultimately all about our children, and then about our health because they’re going to be force-vaccinating adults as well. This is freedom hanging in the balance.”

    I encourage EVERY ONE OF YOU to support their effort.

    This our time to rise up. Leaders who don’t have an army won’t get very far. They have sounded the call to action.

    Now it is YOUR time to answer that call!

    AUTISM CAUSES: MERCURY POISONING FROM VACCINES AND ENVIRONMENT – DAN OLMSTED
    February 19, 2017
    From Forbidden Knowledge
    Alexandra Bruce
    http://forbiddenknowledgetv.net/auti...ury-poisoning/



    Quote I was on the phone with a private investigator friend last Friday and he got a call on the other line. It was from the family of Dan Olmsted.

    Dan Olmstead was the investigative journalist Founder/Editor of AgeofAustism.com who was found dead on January 24th of what was officially called “natural causes” by the coroner – without an autopsy.

    Olmsted’s family was contacting my friend to intervene because law enforcement was preventing them from conducting an autopsy on Dan’s body, while threatening to cremate him against their wishes. They were trying to halt the cremation but according to an anonymous post I read on the Abel Danger website with conflicting details, it appears that Dan’s body may have already been cremated by the time the family reached out for help in this matter.

    Ironically or not so ironically, Olmsted had just written an article about the rash of unusual deaths among healthy and young-ish Holistic Doctors in 2016, a number that has now climbed to over 60 in less than 18 months.

    Olmsted’s death is all the more suspicious because he was scheduled to meet with Donald Trump that day, to present his evidence for a vaccine-autism link.

    This is another good interview about CDC corruption with respect to vaccines, mercury, and autism on the international stage. I'm sorry I don't know how to embed a video, but here's the link. I love the Higherside Chats. The host, Greg Carlwood, likes to present himself as a typical stoner, but his introductions and conclusions to each of his interviews are very thoughtful and frame the issue(s) nicely.

    Lets not miss the adults! CDC plans how to shift more vaccines.

    http://abcnews.go.com/Health/cdc-iss...ry?id=45300235

    Quote CDC: New Vaccine Guidelines for Adults

    While children in the U.S. are often required to be current on their vaccinations or receive a special waiver in order to attend public school, there is no requirement for adult vaccinations, despite several diseases that continue to present dangers. Public health officials have long struggled to bring adults in the U.S. up to date on vaccines.

    "Vaccinations are not just for kids," Dr. William Schaffner, an infectious disease expert at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, told ABC News. "There are any number of vaccines that are targeted to adults. We can do a much better job to deliver these vaccines."

    Officials from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's advisory committee on immunization practices released new recommendations for hepatitis B, influenza and HPV vaccines today as part of its annual vaccination guidelines.

    Among the possible reasons the report cited for low vaccination coverage among adults in the U.S. were "competing priorities with management of patients' acute and chronic health conditions, lower prioritization of immunization for adults compared with other preventive services, and financial barriers to providing vaccination services to adults."

    Not surprisingly, adults who had health insurance were more likely to be up to date on their vaccination coverage. Immunization rates for people with health insurance were two to five times those for people without health insurance.

    The CDC found that another barrier to vaccine coverage could be physicians themselves. It reported that approximately 25 percent of internists felt age-based vaccination recommendations for adults were difficult to follow. Additionally, 29 percent reported that vaccine recommendations based on medical condition were difficult to follow.

    The advisory committee recommends using amplifiers — including patient reminders, recalling patients who have missing vaccines and having alerts in electronic medical records — to improve immunization coverage for adults.

    Schaffner said he hoped additional funding to help adults afford vaccinations, especially if they don't have health insurance, could be implemented on a national level in order to improve vaccination rates.

    "The population, with the exception of the influenza vaccine, doesn't think about vaccines for adults very often," he said. "These are important to you, and most of these are communicable diseases."

    Among the changes to the CDC's recommendations this year are updates on administering the hepatitis B, HPV and flu vaccines. For the HPV vaccine, the CDC now recommends only two doses five months apart, if started before age 15. If the vaccination is started after age 15, then three doses are recommended.

    To protect against meningitis, healthy adults are now recommended to have only two — not three — doses of the serotype B meningitis vaccine. However, three doses are recommended in cases of meningitis outbreaks or if a person is at increased risk for contracting the disease.

    For those with chronic liver disease or liver enzymes that are at worrying levels, the CDC now recommends receiving the hepatitis B vaccine to protect the liver from infection.

    Finally, the CDC recommends using the common injection flu vaccine, not the nasal mist, which was found to be less effective in studies.

    Safety of Mercury in Vaccines: Sorry Dr. Summers, No Cigar
    http://www.thevaccinereaction.org/20...mers-no-cigar/
    Quote by Marco Cáceres
    Published February 22, 2017
    … despite the studies that Dr. Summers think demonstrate the safety of thimerosal in vaccines or that supposedly show that vaccines do not cause autism, there does not exist a study that demonstrates either of these things.
    On Feb. 17, 2017, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and Robert De Niro held a press conference at the National Press Club in Washington, DC. Among those joining them was Del Bigtree, producer of the movie Vaxxed.1 The conference was moderated by investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson, host of the Sunday TV news program Full Measure.2

    The conference focused on the issue of vaccine safety, specifically as it relates to controversial ingredients in vaccines such as the ethylmercury preservative known as thimerosal and, more broadly, to the alleged link between thimerosal containing vaccines and autism. Although the amount of mercury in vaccines has been reduced since the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) jointly asked vaccine manufacturers in 1999 to remove mercury from all vaccines given to children, ethylmercury in varying amounts remains in some influenza, meningococcal, DT/Td and adult Tetanus vaccines.3

    On January 10, Mr. Kennedy was reportedly asked by then President-elect Trump if he would be willing to head up a special commission to investigate the safety of vaccines.4

    According to Mr. Kennedy, who said he agreed to lead the initiative, the purpose of the commission would have a broad mandate: “to make sure we have scientific integrity in the vaccine process for efficacy and safety effects.”5 While the commission has not been formally approved or announced by the new Administration, Mr. Kennedy has said he remains in communication with White House staffers on the matter and is “trading documents about what the commission would look like.”5

    I have been contacted three times by the administration since [10 January] and they tell me that they are still going forward with a commission.6
    During the press conference, Mr. Kennedy, who is chairman of a new organization he founded, the World Mercury Project (WMP), announced on behalf of the WMP a $100,000 challenge with a “goal of stopping use of highly toxic mercury in vaccines.” A press release issued by the WMP stated:

    Thimerosal, a mercury-containing preservative, is still in 48 million U.S. flu vaccines each year, tetanus toxoid, meningococcal vaccines and, in massive doses, in the pediatric vaccines given to 100 million children across the developing world. A Centers for Disease Control (CDC) review published last month found that the ethylmercury in thimerosal is as profoundly neurotoxic as the heavily regulated methylmercury in fish.6
    Under the terms of the challenge, the WMP will…

    pay $100,000 to the first journalist, or other individual, who can find a peer-reviewed scientific study demonstrating that thimerosal is safe in the amounts contained in vaccines currently being administered to American children and pregnant women.7
    Now, it is important to read the wording of the challenge carefully. The money would be awarded in exchange for the production of evidence in a “peer-reviewed scientific study demonstrating that thimerosal is safe in the amounts contained in vaccines” that are currently being given to “American children and pregnant women.”7

    The challenge is very specific. Mr. Kennedy is voicing concern about children and fetuses continuing to be exposed to dangerous levels of mercury when they or their gestating mothers are given thimerosal containing vaccines, even though the CDC stated in 2001 that thimerosal was “removed from or reduced in all vaccines routinely recommended for children 6 years of age and under, manufactured for the U.S. market.”8

    Predictably, Mr. Kennedy’s challenge sparked the immediate appearance of numerous articles and opinions published by in the mainstream media lambasting it. There’s the one in Gizmodo by Kristin V. Brown headlined “No, We Don’t Need a Bull**** Vaccine ‘Safety Challenge'”9 Then there’s Andrea Peyser’s “Everyone needs to ignore RFK Jr.’s misinformed anti-vax claims” opinion piece in the New York Post.10 There are plenty more, but you get the idea.

    Perhaps the most entertaining opinion, however, has to be the one voiced by pediatrician Daniel Summers, MD in The Washington Post. The headline boldy claims, “The evidence for vaccine safety is abundant. That will be $100,000, please.”11

    First, let’s get something straight right off the bat. One should always be circumspect about any article about vaccines written by a pediatrician. Why? Because pediatricians, as well as medical doctors in general, actually know very little about how vaccines affect the human immune system, brain, and microbiome. Apart from learning the vaccine schedule and memorizing the CDC’s mantra that vaccines are safe and effective and that serious vaccine reactions causing injury or death are so rare the incidence cannot be measured, doctors receive almost no education on vaccine science in medical school.

    No, medical doctors are not “experts” in this area of “health care.”12 13 14

    So, when Dr. Summers writes, “It’s nearing two decades since I graduated from medical school, and in that span of time I’ve immunized thousands of patients,” that statement has little or no bearing on his knowledge or level of expertise about infectious diseases or vaccine safety and effectiveness.11

    Further, when he writes, “Not once have I encountered a case where those immunizations could be plausibly linked with autism,” it also has very little relevancy. Why? Because if pediatricians start out their careers being taught and fully believing that vaccines are completely safe and effective and that disabling vaccine reactions are extremely rare or even non-existent, then they are unlikely to be open to the possibility that they may be seriously harming their young patients and will not be inclined to look for a potential link between the vaccines they give a child and the illnesses, disorders, and even deaths that follow vaccination. The connection simply isn’t on their radar screens.

    In many cases, doctors will write off as anecdotal evidence any correlation there may be between a vaccine(s) they give to a pregnant woman, newborn infant or young child and subsequent harm, even when the harm manifests immediately or within days or weeks after the injection.

    In their landmark 1985 book DPT: A Shot in the Dark published by Harcourt Brace Jovanovich more than three decades ago, Harris L. Coulter and Barbara Loe Fisher perfectly described this phenomenon:

    Mothers, who know and observe their children far more carefully than any doctors ever will, have reported for decades that their healthy babies become sick and sometimes die shortly after the doctor has given them a vaccination. But doctors have rejected, and continue to reject, their conclusions. One mother’s experience is typical.
    ‘I have always felt it was the shot, because her convulsion came just one hour after it. But no doctor would admit it. I would go to a hospital, and she would be having something wrong, and I would tell them her story, and they would look at me like I was crazy. They kept telling me she would have gotten seizures anyway, that it was just coincidental that the seizures happened so close to the shot.’
    But how can the medical establishment evaluate vaccine reactions if no one is willing to sit down and observe them? For two thousand years, clinical observation and description of disease has been the raw material of medical science. But this raw material is apparently not to the taste of vaccine policymakers who dismiss as ‘anecdotal’ the stories of mothers and fathers who came forward with their vaccine-injured children.15
    The point is that Dr. Summers appears to base the strength of his theory that vaccines are safe on the fact that he has a medical degree, and thus that he knows better than Mr. Kennedy, who is only an attorney and environmental activist, or indeed he knows better than all the mothers who have been reporting for decades that their healthy children are dying or being left with different kinds of brain and immune system problems, including autism, after being vaccinated.

    Once that logic is debunked, then Dr. Summers’ article doesn’t have a leg to stand on. Dr. Summers makes the following statement:

    In the off chance that my word alone isn’t sufficient to collect the $100,000, I’m happy to proffer lots of studies that support the safety of vaccines.11
    No, Dr. Summers, your word alone is not sufficient, either to prove that vaccines are safe or to collect the $100,000. Note that the WMP challenge is not offering the money to the first person to compile a list of studies supporting the safety of vaccines, but rather to the first person to provide a “peer-reviewed scientific study demonstrating that thimerosal is safe in the amounts contained in vaccines currently being administered to American children and pregnant women.” Yes, the two are similar but not the same. For the sake of argument, though, let’s look at all those studies Dr. Summers presents.

    The first study mentioned by Dr. Summers is one published in 2015 by the Lewin Group—a commercial firm with huge conflicts of interests, counting among its clients numerous vaccine manufacturers and promoters of vaccines, including Abbott Laboratories, Amgen, Boehringer Ingelheim, EMD Serono, Novo Nordisk, Pfizer, and Wyeth Consumer Healthcare.”16 The study is titled “Autism Occurrence by MMR Vaccine Status Among US Children With Older Siblings With and Without Autism.”17

    I’m familiar with the Lewin study. I analyzed and wrote an article about it soon after it came out titled “Another Backward Epidemiological Cohort Study.”18 Contrary to what Dr. Summers thinks, that study did not demonstrate that thimerosal is safe. Neither it nor the other studies referenced19 20 21 22 23 by Dr. Summers could ever hope to do so, because they are, for the most part, retrospective epidemiological studies. As I wrote in my piece:

    [E]pidemiological studies—be they cohort or observational—aren’t the be all and end all of scientific research. First of all, it’s important to note that epidemiology is a basic science, not an applied science. It is not meant to prove anything, merely point the way for further research by fields of applied science that are more capable of solving problems and finding answers.18
    Bear in mind that I am not just expressing my own opinion here. Michael Green, JD, Michal Freedman, JD, MPH and Leon Gordis, MD write in the National Research Council’s Reference Guide on Epidemiology:

    Epidemiology is concerned with the incidence of disease in populations and does not address the question of the cause of an individual’s disease. This question, sometimes referred to as specific causation, is beyond the domain of the science of epidemiology. Epidemiology has its limits at the point where an inference is made that the relationship between an agent and a disease is causal (general causation) and where the magnitude of excess risk attributed to the agent has been determined; that is, epidemiology addresses whether an agent can cause a disease, not whether an agent did cause a specific plaintiff’s disease.18
    Georgia Ede, MD writes:

    Even the most rigorous epidemiological studies suffer from a fundamental limitation. At best, they can show only association, not causation. Epidemiological data can be used to suggest hypotheses but not prove them. … Epidemiological studies, at their best, can only point out a possible connection between two things, but that is only the very first step in trying to figure out whether or not there really is a connection between them.18
    None of the epidemiological studies offered by Dr. Summers demonstrate the safety of thimerosal in vaccines. So, you may ask, “If epidemiological studies are not a good tool for demonstrating safety with regard to vaccines or other drugs, then what is?”

    Good question. For starters, if epidemiological studies are going to be done to evaluate causation issues, then they should be large prospective (forward-looking), case controlled clinical studies that compare health outcomes of groups of individuals who do and do not receive vaccines. Most importantly, causation cannot be scientifically demonstrated without biological mechanism research that measure changes in brain and immune function following vaccination.

    Perhaps Dr. Summers is unware of this, but there has only been one safety study ever conducted on thimerosal, and that was in 1930 by the pharmaceutical company Eli Lilly. In that test, a “human toxicity” study, the company injected a thimerosal-containing solution known as merthiolate into 22 terminal meningitis patients, and within weeks all 22 of them died. Seven of the patients died within one day of receiving the merthiolate. In the report ultimately issued by Eli Lilly declaring thimerosal to be safe, the company did not include results of that test.24 25 26 27 28

    In short, despite the studies that Dr. Summers thinks demonstrate the safety of thimerosal in vaccines or that supposedly show that vaccines do not cause autism, there does not exist a study that demonstrates either of these things. In fact, for every study that Dr. Summers can cite to support his position, there’s a study that can contradict it. There are at least 130 studies, for example, that Dr. Summers may prefer to ignore. To read them, click 130 Research papers supporting Vaccine/Autism Causation.29

    Until scientists conduct appropriate biological mechanism studies plus a well-designed large, prospective case controlled study comparing health outcomes of vaccinated versus unvaccinated children, public health officials and pediatricians cannot begin to answer the trillion dollar question,”Are vaccines safe?” And Dr. Summers will never have the opportunity to claim the $100,000 in prize money he believes he is richly deserves.

    Stunner in First-ever "vax/unvax" Study: Vaxxed Kids Have 4.7 Fold Higher Risk of Autism
    By Mark Mark F. Blaxill http://us2.campaign-archive2.com/?u=...d&e=5c8014f0d3
    (4.7 seems like an extremely conservative figure to me, but it's a beginning, at least....)
    Quote In a development that autism parents have long anticipated, the first-ever, peer-reviewed study comparing total health outcomes in vaccinated and unvaccinated children was released on line yesterday. According to sources close to the project, the study had been reviewed and accepted by two different journals, both of which pulled back on their approval once the political implications of the findings became clear. That’s largely because, as parents have long expected, the rate of autism is significantly higher in the vaccinated group, a finding that could shake vaccine safety claims just as the first president who has ever stated a belief in a link between vaccines and autism has taken office.
    Working in partnership with the National Home Education Research Institute (NHERI), Dr. Anthony Mawson led a research team that investigated the relationship between vaccination exposures and a range of over 40 acute and chronic illnesses in home schooled children, a population chosen for its high proportion of unvaccinated children. Surveying families in four states--Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi and Oregon—the study (officially titled Vaccination and Health Outcomes: A Survey of 6- to 12-year-old Vaccinated and Unvaccinated Children based on Mothers’ Reports), reported a number of startling findings.
    Vaccinated children were significantly more likely than the unvaccinated to have been diagnosed with a neurodevelopmental disorder: most notably, the risk of being affected by an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) was 4.7 fold higher in vaccinated children; as well, ADHD risk was 4.7 fold higher and learning disability risk was 3.7 fold higher. Overall, the vaccinated children in the study were 3.7 times more likely to have been diagnosed with some kind of neurodevelopmental disorder.
    Vaccinated children were also significantly more likely to be diagnosed with an immune-related disorder. The risk of allergic rhinitis (commonly known as hay fever) was over 30 times higher in vaccinated children, while the risk of other allergies was increased 3.9 fold and the eczema risk was increased 2.4 fold.
    With respect to acute illness and infectious disease the outcomes were in some respects surprising. As might be expected, unvaccinated children were significantly (4-10 times) more likely to have come down with chicken pox, rubella or pertussis. Perhaps unexpectedly, the unvaccinated children were less likely to suffer from otitis media and pneumonia: vaccinated children had 3.8 times greater odds of a middle ear infection and 5.9 times greater odds of a bout with pneumonia.
    The study was based on a survey with participants recruited in a process led by NHERI and coordinated through 84 state and local homeschool groups. The survey itself was, according to the authors, “nonbiased and neutrally worded.”
    These findings in a study population of 666 children, 261 of whom (39%) were unvaccinated, are sure to stir controversy, in part because it is the first of its kind. The scientific literature on the long-term effects of the vaccination program is virtually silent. Most studies on the safety of vaccines only consider immediate or short-term effects. There was no obvious explanation for the differences in health outcomes observed between the vaccinated and unvaccinated groups of children other than vaccination itself.
    The finding that vaccination is a significant risk for autism is the most explosive finding in the paper. For well over a decade, parents concerned that vaccines were involved in autism’s sharp rise have been calling for what has long been labelled the “vax/unvax” study. Public health officials such as Paul Offit have resisted these calls with claims that a comparative study of autism risk and other health outcomes in unvaccinated and vaccinated children would be retrospectively impossible and prospectively unethical.
    Despite opposition from those like Offit, attempts to launch a formal vax/unvax study have been made for many years. In 2006, Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney (D, NY) authored what is now called Vaccine Safety Study Act. Said Maloney to the opponents, "Maybe someone in the medical establishment will show me why this study is a bad idea, but they haven't done it yet.” In 2007, Generation Rescue (one of the Mawson study’s sponsors) retained a market research firm to undertake a similar survey (it is available on line and had similar findings but was never published in a scientific journal).
    Less formal surveys focused on whether or not autism was present in the unvaccinated have also been undertaken in unusual populations, including the Amish and the patients of alternative health practitioners. Age of Autism founder Dan Olmsted investigated autism in the Amish, who vaccinate less frequently. Autism is rare among the Amish and the only autistic Amish children we discovered were also vaccinated. (Others reported cases in Amish children with birth defects, but not “idiopathic autism,” the kind that occurs in otherwise typical children who are the heart of the current epidemic). The late Mayer Eisenstein reported in his HomeFirst practice in Chicago that he delivered more than 15,000 babies at home, and thousands of them were never vaccinated. Of these unvaccinated children, none had autism.
    The link between autism and vaccination became a hot topic in this year’s presidential election. Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton once tweeted ““The science is clear: The earth is round, the sky is blue, and #vaccineswork. Let's protect all our kids. #GrandmothersKnowBest.” In contrast, President Donald Trump has long been outspoken about the likely connection between vaccines and autism. As early as 2007, Trump remarked, “When I was growing up, autism wasn't really a factor. And now all of a sudden, it's an epidemic. Everybody has their theory, and my theory is the shots. They're getting these massive injections at one time. I think it's the vaccinations.”
    In the absence of any published evidence on the question, the call for a vax/unvax study has become a rallying cry for autism advocates. Now it appears, the results confirm what many have long suspected. These findings, especially the significant link between autism risk and vaccination, are certain to increase pressure on public health officials inside and outside the government to acknowledge the legitimacy of a concern they have long dismissed.
    Like any study, this one is open to critique. One will be its relatively small sample size, relatively high ASD rate (3.3% overall as compared to 2.24% in the closest comparable CDC study) as well as the funding sources. Most studies that have found no link between autism and vaccination have been pharma or government funded, and the media has not considered that significant enough to mention. Nonetheless, expect a hue and cry that money for this study came in part from sources concerned about a possible vaccine-autism link.

    HuffPo exposed for blocking any favorable reviews about Vaxxed documentary

    Annabelle Bamforth
    The Free Thought Project
    Tue, 28 Feb 2017 00:00 UTC



    It's recently been revealed that The Huffington Post has continued to block articles that appear to cast any favorable light on the controversial film "Vaxxed," as two articles contributed by British writer Sally Beck were removed shortly after publication.

    Beck wrote an article, titled "VAXXED, should we watch this movie?", and it was published on the UK version of The Huffington Post on February 21st. She went on to co-author an article titled "The MMR vaccine: why it's sensible to worry about the way it has been regulated" shortly after the "Vaxxed" article.

    "Vaxxed is based on extensive recorded interviews with whistleblower, Dr William Thompson, a former senior scientist at the CDC, (Centres for Disease Control) the US agency concerned with safeguarding public health," Beck wrote. "The film looks at whether his claims - that he, and four others at the CDC, skewed data in an important study looking at whether the MMR jab (measles, mumps and rubella) can cause autism - are true. Dr Thompson said: 'I have waited a long time to tell my story and I want to tell it truthfully. I was involved in deceiving millions of taxpayers regarding the potential negative side effects of vaccines. We lied about the scientific findings.'"

    The article "VAXXED, should we watch this movie?" served mainly as a review of the film's content, while the MMR article expressed support for parents who have concerns about the safety of MMR vaccines. Both articles appear to show some graciousness toward Thompson as well as controversial figures Andrew Wakefield and Brian Hooker.

    These articles illustrated how Beck was intrigued by the claims made in this movie, particularly a bold charge made by Thompson that, during a study regarding a potential link between African-American boys, the MMR vaccine, and autism which was published in 2004, he and his co-authors removed data that led to an indication that young African-American males who received the MMR vaccine before the age of 36 months may be at an increased risk for autism.

    In 2014, Thompson released a statement that alleged he and his fellow co-authors eliminated data in the study:
    "I regret that my co-authors and I omitted statistically significant information in our 2004 article published in the journal 'Pediatrics'. The omitted data suggested that African American males who received the MMR (mumps, measles and rubella) vaccine before age 36 months were at increased risk for autism. Decisions were made regarding the findings of the report as the data was collected and I believe that the final study protocol was not followed."
    "Vaxxed" has been condemned by most of the medical community as well as the bulk of mainstream media as a whole, mainly because of the controversy surrounding Dr. Brian Hooker's involvement with Thompson as well as the fact that it was directed by Andrew Wakefield. Wakefield lost his medical license and was essentially exiled from the scientific community after he published a study in 1998 suggesting that the MMR vaccine was linked to autism; his study was retracted following claims of fraud surrounding the study.

    Hooker was subjected to intense criticism after publishing a similar MMR study of his own serving as a "re-analysis" of Thompson's study; his paper was published in the journal Translational Neurodegeneration and it too was ultimately retracted.

    Thompson's willingness to admit wrongdoing at the CDC was quite abrupt, but ignored by most media. It turned out that Thompson's claims had originally been made privately to Hooker. Unbeknownst to Thompson, Hooker had been recording these private discussions and it appears that Thompson went public because he was about to be exposed by Hooker. Thompson's 2014 statement concluded that he was not aware that Hooker "was recording any of our conversations, nor was I given any choice regarding whether my name would be made public or my voice would be put on the Internet."

    The MMR study, the secret recordings, Thompson's statement, and the release of the CDC documents of the study are indeed rife with controversy. While Wakefield and Hooker can be viewed as polarizing figures, the central theme of Beck's "Vaxxed" review is mostly rooted in Thompson's claims of CDC data manipulation.

    However, the majority of news outlets tend to instead focus on Hooker and Wakefield. In-depth coverage specifically regarding Thompson's claim that data in a study was omitted- quite a serious topic that some view as worthy of discussion- is difficult to be found among corporate media.

    This is not the first time that The Huffington Post has pulled a review of "Vaxxed." Lance Simmens, a former contributor for The Huffington Post, told journalist Celia Farber last year that his review of the movie was pulled with no explanation. "I saw a premier of VAXXED the other evening and was so moved by the presentation and discussion that followed that I felt compelled to write a piece asking that we at least begin a serious national dialogue on the allegations contained in the documentary," Simmens told Farber. "I also drew attention to the spate of events that have unfolded over the past several years, where there has been a massive governmental failure to do its essential job, which is to protect the health, safety and welfare of the citizens."

    Simmens shared his frustration that the article was removed from The Huffington Post with no explanation. "It never crossed my mind that this might be some sort of censorship because it has never happened to me and the article, while provocative, is not beyond any bounds of journalistic or political propriety," Simmens noted.

    The debate over vaccine safety can be difficult to navigate. Arguments can be heavily subjective, and there are clearly strong convictions present on both sides of the controversy: there are those who believe that vaccines are critical and that federal agencies should be spared scrutiny for the sake of preserving public health, and those who hold more doubt, seeking accountability regarding the science behind vaccines and believing that corruption exists within the pharmaceutical industry and the government. While The Huffington Post has the ultimate authority over what is published on its site, it is notable that their removal of Beck's posts seem to point to an unwritten policy that expressly forbids discourse on this issue.

    Nurse Whistleblower: Hospitals Vaccinating Patients by Force Without Their Knowledge
    March 2, 2017
    http://vaccineimpact.com/2016/nurse-...eir-knowledge/
    by Jefferey Jaxen
    Health Impact News
    Quote The momentum, consciousness and continual discussion around truth and education related to vaccine injury has never been greater. Parents and communities have taken the initiative to find answers for their sons and daughters who’ve suffered severe adverse events from immunization.

    Evaporating fast are the days of dead end solutions and pharmaceutical answers provided by mainstream medicine’s limited toolbox. Like an untamable ripple effect, this awakening has also encompassed the discussion around mandatory vaccination, lack of informed consent, pharmaceutical control of American healthcare and an overall lack of health freedom currently resting on a slippery slope.

    The U.S. mainstream medical system and healthcare are failed establishments that have drifted away from healing to become profit-based outlets dispensing inferior and outdated pharmaceutical products. The historical direction has been clear to anyone paying attention and now it appears that the beginning of some tipping point has arrived. What it means and where it will lead is unknown. Yet the status quo of business as usual is changing moving forward as medical whistleblowers come forward and communities recoil against their loss of heath freedom.

    In two short years much has changed as a result of a countrywide mobilization fueled by the whistleblowing admission of Dr. William Thompson. Known as the CDC whistleblower, Dr. Thompson went public recounting — in detail — his experience about research fraud within the U.S. Center’s for Disease Control and Prevention. The documentary film Vaxxed: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe supercharged the focus on the CDC’s troubled vaccine division and simultaneously exposed a heavily controlled and censored mainstream media in the U.S.

    Recently, another medical/health whistleblower made immediate waves by publicly recounting her continued experiences witnessing daily routine vaccine injury in U.S. hospital neonatal intensive care units (NICUs). Nurse whistleblower Michelle Rowton told of a callous medical system that regularly and inhumanly chooses to give the CDC’s recommended vaccine schedule to premature infants causing massive increases in severe and life threatening adverse reactions. According to Rowton, the attending doctors and medical staff have made these routine, medically incompetent actions into jokes to be laughed at on the hospital floor and in break rooms.

    Forced Flu Vaccinations

    In the age of information, the incidences of whistleblowers are increasing. As health freedom and informed consent is eroding at breakneck speeds, those left with ethics, courage and humanity within such a system are keeping quiet no longer. Meeting on the first Friday of each month, the Talk About Curing Autism’s Pennsylvania chapter support meeting gathers to provide education, support and resources for families that are in need.

    At a recent meeting that took place during the first week of May, a nurse was filmed using the live streaming app Periscope warning of forced flu vaccinations occurring in U.S. hospitals. In addition, the nurse gave possible solutions to the unaware, targeted public in an effort to preserve their informed consent and avoid unwanted adverse reactions. According to the new nurse whistleblower:

    Since the Affordable Care Act came out, we are now — as nurses — required to ask every single patient when they come to the hospital if you’ve had your flu vaccine or your pneumococcal vaccine. If you say no to either one of those, in the computer, an order will generate that says we need to give you this vaccine. We don’t need to speak to a doctor…it’s hospital policy. It’s now health department policy that we now have to give you the vaccine.
    New Signed Consent for Hospital Services Includes Vaccines – But Patients Unaware They are Granting Such Consent

    The bigger, headline-making story was made as the nurse whistleblower continued:

    When you go to the hospital if you need surgery — say you need a knee replacement surgery — first they’re going to ask you if you’ve had your vaccines. You’re going to say no. Then they’re going to say you need to sign this consent if you’re going to have surgery…you need to sign a consent. In the consent, there’s a word call ‘biogenics [biologics]’ and if you sign the consent saying ‘I consent for you to give me biogenics [biologics]’ — that basically means that they can give you anything that they deem necessary including vaccines. So if you say that you didn’t get a flu shot and it’s flu season and you sign the consent saying I agree to biogenics [biologics], they will give you a vaccine even when you’re under anesthesia because you already signed the consent.
    How do hospitals inform the patient they have just partaken in a medical procedure (immunization) having inherent risks without being given proper informed consent? According to the nurse whistleblower, hospitals approach the subject by telling patients the following:

    Unless you go and get your medical records, you will not know you got a flu vaccine. They [the hospital] may tell you at the end ‘oh by the way, you’re now covered, you’ve had the flu vaccine or you got the pneumococcal vaccine.’

    Vaccines Forced on Patients Who do not Want Them in U.S. Hospitals

    Is this really happening? Certainly people would be talking if it was. The nurse whistleblower goes further saying:

    Two people now have reported to me last week saying that they got the vaccine; they did not want the vaccines. They did not know that the word biogenics [biologics] meant they’re going to get a vaccine.
    So how can people protect themselves? According the nurse, perhaps a simple strategy can instantly combat this push towards forced vaccination now happening in U.S. hospitals. She warns:

    When you sign consent for surgery, you can specifically say ‘no vaccines, I don’t want this.’ You can write an initial after what you say you do not want and they have to honor that. And if they don’t honor that, they can be sued.

    The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) defines biologics using the following statements:

    Biological products include a wide range of products such as vaccines….In contrast to most drugs that are chemically synthesized and their structure is known, most biologics are complex mixtures that are not easily identified or characterized.
    It should be noted that the Department of Justice publishes a quarterly list of vaccine severe adverse reaction settlements and injuries. The majority of the vaccine injuries contained on the DOJ’s list are a direct result of the flu shot.

    In addition, the effectiveness of the flu shot last year was 23 percent according to official CDC statistics. During manufacturing of the flu shot, the CDC and drug maker take a guess at what flu strains may be prominent for the coming year’s flu season.

    Due to this fact, every flu shot is different from the previous years and therefore untested. Since the ingredients are always changing, there is no time for true safety studies to be performed. Each year, individuals undergoing the medical procedure of vaccination are considered the final phase of public safety testing for an unproven pharmaceutical product.

    Furthermore, denying the patient this knowledge — and access to the manufacturer’s insert before injection — constitutes a laundry list of broken medical ethics agreements and violations of international codes protecting humans against forced medical experimentation.



    Dr. Andrew Moulden: Every Vaccine Produces Harm

    dr_andrew_moulden_every_vaccine_produces_harm
    eBook – Available for immediate download.

    Canadian physician Dr. Andrew Moulden provided clear scientific evidence to prove that every dose of vaccine given to a child or an adult produces harm. The truth that he uncovered was rejected by the conventional medical system and the pharmaceutical industry. Nevertheless, his warning and his message to America remains as a solid legacy of the man who stood up against big pharma and their program to vaccinate every person on the Earth.

    Dr. Moulden died unexpectedly in November of 2013 at age 49.

    Because of the strong opposition from big pharma concerning Dr. Moulden’s research, we became concerned that the name of this brilliant researcher and his life’s work had nearly been deleted from the internet. His reputation was being disparaged, and his message of warning and hope was being distorted and buried without a tombstone. This book summarizes his teaching and is a must-read for everyone who wants to learn the “other-side” of the vaccine debate that the mainstream media routinely censors.

Furthermore, denying the patient this knowledge — and access to the manufacturer’s insert before injection — constitutes a laundry list of broken medical ethics agreements and violations of international codes protecting humans against forced medical experimentation.

    Every Vaccine Produces Harm dr_andrew_moulden_every_vaccine_produces_harm eBook – Available for immediate download. Canadian physician Dr. Andrew Moulden provided clear scientific evidence to prove that every dose of vaccine given to a child or an adult produces harm. The truth that he uncovered was rejected by the conventional medical system and the pharmaceutical industry. Nevertheless, his warning and his message to America remains as a solid legacy of the man who stood up against big pharma and their program to vaccinate every person on the Earth. Dr. Moulden died unexpectedly in November of 2013 at age 49. Because of the strong opposition from big pharma concerning Dr. Moulden’s research, we became concerned that the name of this brilliant researcher and his life’s work had nearly been deleted from the internet. His reputation was being disparaged, and his message of warning and hope was being distorted and buried without a tombstone. This book summarizes his teaching and is a must-read for everyone who wants to learn the “other-side” of the vaccine debate that the mainstream media routinely censors.

    Hi guys,

    This made headlines today in Australia....one of our more controversial political leaders Pauline Hanson has caused a massive stir suggesting that parents should not be forced to vaccinate their children, rather should do their own research.

    I'm not sure if anyone outside of Oz has access to this article.

    Such a challenging issue that does my head in.

    Cheers,

    Matt

    Manufacturing consent in science: the diabolical twist
    by Jon Rappoport
    March 8, 2017
    https://jonrappoport.wordpress.com/2...lical-twist-2/
    Quote
    “Science plays a larger and larger role in running the world. But much of it is misleading science, slanted, cooked, biased, stepped on, false, and invented out of thin air.” (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)

    In the famous 1988 Noam Chomsky and Edward Herman book, Manufacturing Consent, the authors explore how media distort the news and employ propaganda, in order to bring about consent in the population.

    This is nothing less than the creation of reality.

    From so many directions, official science is shaping our future—that’s why it’s vital to understand the manipulations involved.

    It’s one thing to say media collaborate to sell a false picture of reality, a picture which is then bought by the masses. It’s quite another thing to say media collaborate to PRETEND there is ALREADY a consensus of the best professional minds on a given scientific subject—when there ISN’T.

    I’ll start with a theoretical example. Let’s say three researchers at a university examine data based on US space shuttle missions, and they conclude that a small set of new conclusions is true. I’ll call this set X.

    The researchers publish an article in a journal, and a healthy debate ensues in professional circles. Is X correct? Are there flaws in the research?

    However, a powerful public agency decides that X is dangerous. X could lead to inquiries about contractors, investigations into cost overruns, missing money, and, worst of all, flawed engineering of the shuttles.

    Therefore, this powerful agency goes on an all-out propaganda campaign, tapping its press sources, culminating in a new study that concludes X is entirely false.

    The press basically trumpets: “Experts agree X is false. X was the result of shoddy research. The original researchers made numerous amateur mistakes.”

    Notice that, in this case, the press isn’t simply distorting the news. It’s announcing that a superior consensus already/suddenly exists among the best scientific minds.

    It’s lying about a consensus that doesn’t exist among scientists who, up until that moment, were having a healthy debate.

    The press is presenting the false consensus as if it were real and widespread, when it isn’t.

    But at this point, all relevant scientists get the message: keep quiet, don’t debate for another moment; otherwise grant monies will vanish, demotions will occur, peers will lay on heavy criticism, excommunication from The Club will follow.

    So these scientists do keep quiet—and NOW a consensus among them comes into being, by implied threat and coercion.

    This is basically what happened in the arena of energy-production via cold fusion. Wikipedia adequately summarizes the superficial situation: “The most famous cold fusion claims were made by Stanley Pons and Martin Fleischmann in 1989. After a brief period of interest by the wider scientific community, their reports were called into question by nuclear physicists.”

    Not just called into question; defamed, derided, mocked, slammed over the head with a sledgehammer.

    A superior consensus was invented, despite the fact that many scientists were intensely interested in the Pons/Fleishmann findings. Some of these scientists tried, in vain, to point out that failed efforts to reproduce those findings resulted because researchers were altering Pons and Fleishman’s methods.

    No dice. Cold fusion was labeled a giant error and even a fraud. The official door was closed. THEN a consensus hardened—through coercion and intimidation.

    In my research leading up to the publication of my first book, AIDS INC., in 1988, I reviewed the period of the early 1980s, when many researchers were coming at the question of the cause(s) of AIDS from different angles. But then, suddenly, in the spring of 1984, the US government officially announced, at a televised press conference, that a virus called HTLV-III (HIV) was the cause.

    The science was shoddy, to put it mildly. It was bad science and no science. There was no single published paper that meticulously laid out proof of HIV as the cause of AIDS. But no matter. Overnight, all the monies that had gone into discovering what caused AIDS were diverted into the question: How does HIV cause AIDS? Any scientist who failed to see the handwriting on the wall was shoved out into the cold.

    The press closed ranks. The consensus (though it was manufactured in the blink of an eye) was trumpeted around the world.

    The big news headline wasn’t just false and distorted. It was false-and-distorted about a consensus that, until a few seconds ago, didn’t exist—and only existed now because researchers went silent and accepted dogma and folded up.

    Predatory corporations, who spray poisonous pesticides all over the world and cause birth defects, need special protection and cover? Public health agencies that recommend giving vaccines to pregnant women, and increase the risk of babies born with defects? Solution: invent, overnight, and broadcast, a consensus that a basically harmless virus is the cause of those tragic birth defects.

    I can assure you there are many scientists who don’t, for a second, believe the Zika virus is such an agent of destruction. But they have kept their mouths shut, and have chosen to roll with the tide.

    However, that tide is turning, in many arenas of science. Journalists and researchers with no allegiance to official bodies have emerged.

    A different species of handwriting is being inscribed on the wall.

    What can the mainstream press do about it?

    They can only deploy the crass tactics I’ve mentioned here.

    A massive and stunning re-education is taking place among the population. No school is running it. No agency is sponsoring it. It’s happening from the ground up.

    It turns out that living as a cipher and a unit in the sticky web of fabricated consensus isn’t nearly as attractive as it once was.

    More and more, major media are using the consensus strategy to invent the news—and people are rejecting it.

    Without realizing it, the press is committing professional suicide. An article that was once headlined, “Three dead horses found in a field,” has become, “Scientists agree that the three dead horses were an unconnected coincidence.” And people are laughing the press out of court.

    The ongoing scandal surrounding the film, Vaxxed, is a good example. The press assures the population that pointing out a connection between a vaccine and autism is absurd, because scientific experts agree there is no such connection.

    But the film features a long-time researcher at the Centers for Disease Control, who confesses that he and colleagues falsified a 2004 study in order to exonerate such a vaccine, the MMR, which does increase the risk of autism.

    One of the film’s subjects is false consensus.

    And the press can do no better than repeat, over and over: the consensus is real and valid.

    The CDC researcher and whistleblower, William Thompson, essentially said: I was part of the fake consensus. Don’t you get it? I was a card-carrying member of the club that invents fake consensus. And now I’m telling you that.

    Bottom line: the media are collapsing into their own swamp.

    The swamp they manufacture.

    For decades, the press, government agencies, the UN, and a whole host of think-tank, foundation, university players, and financiers have been fronting for a consensus which they falsely claim is already established: planned societies.

    They frame this consensus as technology/science—as if science itself dictates that the future must consist of interlocked organizations which insert citizens into slots. Slots where they live, where they work, where they socialize.

    Abstract patterns, imposed on humans.

    This has the flavor of science, but on reflection, not the substance. “We can make the top-down organization of society look scientific, as if we’re following physical laws. We can sell this as science.”

    Really? Is a chart detailing how thousands of slaves will transport huge blocks of stone to chosen sites, where monuments will be built, scientific? Of course not.

    In the modern world, this fakery is called technocracy. Technocracy may employ methods such as technological surveillance, but the overriding plan for organizing society has nothing to do with science. It has to do with control.

    And when you see it that way, the supposed consensus falls apart.

    Who wants to live in an assigned slot “for the greater good?”

    Up close and personal, who wants to give up his freedom?

    Review your understanding of Marxism. “From each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs.” It, too, was sold as a scientific analysis of human society. It was imbued with the flavor of science, as if this Marxian principle had been discovered, just as molecules and atoms had been discovered.

    And it too was promoted as an already-existing consensus among the wisest and the best and the brightest.

    Hi guys,

    Sorry for the delay. Have a go at this article reporting on the same issue. Mrs. Hanson had been savaged by everyone including a massive fallout from her own party since implying their may be a link between vaccination and autism. She was gaining some serious momentum prior to this...and is now sinking fast. She's been closely aligned and supportive of Trumps policies and up until this point, this has stood heavily in her favour. Although people are afraid to say it, Trump had a strong following in Australia.
