    Default What's Really Behind the Current Measles Outbreak?

    The following article is packed with supporting data and common sense. Many of the most common misconceptions about vaccines, immunity and disease are addressed. Definitely this is one to keep handy to be able to respond to questions.
    It's pretty long so I've just copied about half the article below. If this is one of your interests, read the whole thing. It's worth it.


    The link is: http://us2.campaign-archive2.com/?u=...1&e=ed6c246107

    I got this from: www.vaccineliberationarmy.com

    What’s Really Behind the Current Measles Outbreak?
    Tedd Koren, DC

    In this nation of over 300 million, a little over a hundred cases of measles have been reported with no deaths. Some epidemic. Why is everyone so concerned?

    How many epidemic scares have we seen in the past few years? Both swine flu scares, SARS, bird flu, H1N1 flu, the Ebola scare and wasn’t heterosexual AIDS predicted to wipe out a quarter of the earth’s population? And this is only a partial list! As George Carlin once said, “Americans panic easily.”

    But who can blame us when the “experts” say terrible things are going to happen and the media doesn’t give the other side of a story? The media merely parrots the official medical party line and even ignores and mocks those with opposing views. The fact that they’ve been wrong every time doesn’t matter; people still freak out when told, “It’s coming and it’s gonna be bad this time.”

    What exactly is measles?

    Measles is a short-lived viral infection that begins with a fever that lasts for a couple of days, followed by a cough, runny nose and conjunctivitis (pink eye). A rash starts on the face, hairline and upper neck, spreads down the back and trunk, and extends to the extremities. After about 5 days, the rash fades.

    How dangerous is measles?

    Measles is a mild and harmless disease that leaves a stronger, healthier child in its wake; most adults today who were born before 1965 got measles and have lifelong immunity as a result. Serious problems from measles are very, very rare.

    This, by the way, was standard medical policy; measles was just a rite of passage. It changed when the measles vaccine came on the market in the 1960s. Suddenly this mild, beneficial rite of passage became a deadly disease.

    Some MDs still don’t buy the hype. As Jay Gordon, MD, former UCLA Medical Center pediatrician recently said:

    This measles outbreak does not pose a great risk to a healthy child and quite frankly I don't think it poses any risk to a healthy child.
    Doctor explains why he lets kids avoid the measles vaccine.

    How deadly is measles compared to the measles shot?

    Dr. Anne Schuchat, director of CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, in an Associated Press interview in 2014 stated that there have been no measles deaths in the US since 2003.


    However, the CDC’s National Vital Statistics Reports show 2 deaths associated with measles for 2009 and 2010.

    Now let’s look at this measles vaccine

    “Pediatricians continue to defend vaccination to the death. The
    question parents should be asking is, ‘Whose death?’
    Robert Mendelsohn, MD

    Another government reporting agency, The National Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), reports 108 children died from the measles vaccine during a ten year period. http://www.medalerts.org/vaersdb/index.php

    But that may be a fraction of the real number because MDs often do not report vaccine injuries.

    Death certificates, usually filled out by MDs, very rarely mention vaccination as the cause of death. They may write encephalitis or brain inflammation rather than vaccination even though vaccines can cause brain inflammation) on the death certificate. We don’t know the real number of vaccine injuries and deaths. But they are most likely much greater than what VAERS reports due to underreporting.

    According to Dr. David Kessler, former head of the Food and Drug Administration, "Only about 1 percent of serious events [adverse drug reactions] are reported to the FDA." Kessler DA, Natanblut S, Kennedy D. et al. Introducing MEDWatch A New Approach to Reporting Medication and Device Adverse Effects and Product Problems. JAMA. 1993;269(21):2765-2768.

    We don’t know how many vaccine injuries and deaths there are but if we apply the above underreporting number to vaccine injuries then possibly as many as 10,800 children might have been harmed or killed by the measles vaccine during the period that at most four died from measles.

    In addition two serious diseases rarely found in the non-vaccinated:

    Atypical measles

    Atypical measles occurs only in the vaccinated and can be fatal. http://www.cdph.ca.gov/HealthInfo/di...s/Measles.aspx
    Atypical measles was initially thought to occur only in those who received the killed measles vaccine, but several investigators have reported this illness in children who had been vaccinated only with the live measles vaccine.
    Nichols EM. Atypical measles: a continuing problem. Am J Public Health. 1979;69(2):160-162.


    The measles vaccine can also cause subacute sclerosing panencephalitis (SSPE), which is 100% fatal, in a very small number of children.

    SSPE is a progressive neurological disorder of children and young adults that affects the central nervous system (CNS). It is a slow, but persistent, viral infection caused by defective measles virus.

    Measles amongst the non-vaccinated?

    The Amish are a religious community the vast majority of which are not vaccinated. They reported not a single case of measles between 1970 and 1987. Sutter RW, Markowitz LE, Bennetch JM, Morris W, Zell ER, Preblud SR. Measles among the Amish: a comparative study of measles severity in primary and secondary cases in households. J Infect Dis. 1991 Jan;163(1):12-6. while the local highly‐vaccinated communities still reported epidemics every 2‐3 year. Based on this experience measles appears to circulate more amongst the vaccinated than the non-vaccinated.

    Vaccine recalls

    However useful or safe properly manufactured, distributed and administered vaccines might be in theory—and the jury is still out on the issues of safety and efficacy for a number of vaccines—vaccine experts have repeatedly reversed themselves about the safety or effectiveness of vaccines they have previously sworn were safe. Science often provides an imperfect answer.

    Properly tested and licensed vaccines were later found to cause injury and death and were stopped by vaccines authorities. A 1993 MMR vaccine was found to cause mumps and encephalitis Sawada eta. 1993; Lancet 342 (7 August): 371 the Edmondson-Zagreb measles vaccine was stopped because children had an increased rick of death from other diseases years after vaccination Weiss, R. 1992. Measles battle loses potent weapon. Science; 258 (23 October): 546-547 the pertussis (whooping cough) vaccine was boycotted by doctors in Japan after 57 severe reactions and 37 deaths. The Japanese government switched to a different vaccine Sato Y, et al. 1984. Development of a pertussis component vaccine n Japan. Lancet; 1: 122-126 and Noble GR et al. 1987 Acellular and whole-cell pertussis vaccines injapan:report of a visit by US scientists. J Amer Med Ass; 257: 1351-1356.

    In 2010, the Rotarix (rotavirus) vaccine was recalled because it was contaminated with DNA from pig virus. It was given to one million U.S. children, and about 30 million worldwide. A measles vaccine was also found to contain low levels of the retrovirus avian leukosis virus, and Rotateq, Merck's rotavirus vaccine, was found to contain a virus similar to simian (monkey) retrovirus. http://articles.mercola.com/sites/ar...prise-you.aspx

    In 1955 hundreds of babies and adults came down with polio after they were vaccinated with the Salk vaccine. The vaccination program was temporarily halted. Eventually the Salk vaccine was replaced with the Sabin vaccine that was found to cause polio and was then changed back to the Salk vaccine.

    People have a right to choose because the science is never absolute.

    Default Re: What's Really Behind the Current Measles Outbreak?

    Back in the sixties, and I suppose before then even more so, we understood that childhood disease was natural, that there was a threat but it would pass with proper care. We might not have understood that these childhood diseases were actually good for the child's immune system but we suspected as much. What has happened to this common-sense approach? It has been commandeered by a pharmaceutical industry requiring guarantees of profits to even exist. You can't have pharmaceuticals without mass consumption of those drugs. We all know it costs hundreds of millions of dollars to bring a drug through its developmental and trial stages before it is approved for public use. Most may know that the success rate is very low for a drug to make it to this stage, from memory, it might be around 5% (not even, more like 1 - 2 %). That means the drug companies must invest 100s of billions before a successful drug is found that can actually make the company some money (on average, but with statistical and other methods of selection, the best promising drug candidates can be selected with less up front costs overall).

    Because of the massive financial costs, the drug companies must secure their profits by various means including but not limited to: lobbying government to enact laws favoring drug companies, influencing doctors directly with visits by salesman bringing free gifts of drug doses and other perks, selecting those drugs for production that have the largest profit potential, focussing on maintenance drugs as opposed to cures, advertising less effective drugs directly to an unsuspecting public, advocates and supports mandatory mass vaccination - a highly lucrative part of the industry, and many even more questionable tactics.

    The measles epidemic? What epidemic? Like EagleSpirit made us aware of recently: more people die of death by falling coconut...
    If not now, then when?

    Excellent movie for those who haven't yet seen it.


    You're about to see how Wall Street has literally "BOUGHT" your and your family's health.

    The food, vaccine, drug, insurance and health industry are a multi-BILLION dollar enterprise... focused more on profits than human lives. The BOUGHT documentary takes viewers deep "inside the guts" of this despicable conspiracy...

    Featuring exclusive interviews with the world's most acclaimed experts in research, medicine, holistic care and natural health... Bought exposes the hidden (and deadly) story behind it all.

    did you guys catch the CNN article this week about 500+ parents arrested in Pakistan for resisting vaccination of their children,
    the "aid workers" backed by BMGF etc are able to call on the local police/military/paramilitary to vaccine at GUNPOINT just like AJ reported a few years ago,
    but his site is so hateful sometimes it's hard to see the real news, that was REAL news, lol

    the Not so LOL part is that vaccines can cause long lasting damage including auto immunity and gut disease...
    not a fair trade.

    in the mil it was people who liked to party hard who tended to get the most ill from shots,
    and the unfortunate few who had allergies or genetic issues -- as if the vaccine being experimental was not bad enough.

    see the film Renaissance 2052(or 53 lol i can't recall) about experiments on kids.

    p.s. if you follow the money you will find the same Dragon behind experimenting on kids and monopolizing countries with high pops and low morals (guess who) @@. His great-great-great grand-monster H.L.G. hated military people too, and if he could have, he would have killed GW (first pres!) with a vaccine....

    A friend from the USA sent this out, and I offer it to those in the USA who can sign petitions and contact their government reps to say "NO".

    While the mainstream media has portrayed those opposed to mandatory vaccination as misguided "anti-vaxers," the truth is, even the US Dept of Health and Human Services lists a litany of known injuries from a wide variety of vaccines in their "vaccine injury table" (see links below) and despite many laws banning litigation against drug companies, there is still a brisk business for medical malpractice attorneys suing drug companies for huge sums over a large variety of vaccine injuries. Here is but one example of such class actions:

    Government Enforced Vaccines for all Adults Proposed
    by US Dept of Health and Human Services

    March 9th is the cutoff date for when mandatory vaccines could become a terrifying reality. Our ability to work, play, rent a home or apartment and obtain the necessities of life are threatened to be tied to whether or not we accept potentially poisonous vaccines of all kinds. We have just learned that the US Health and Human Services department (HHS) has decided to “protect” us with a new experiment to be conducted on the entire adult population. They have submitted a plan called the five-year National Adult Immunization Plan (NAIP), designed to provide HHS with more power to further enforce vaccine compliance on all adults. They are doing this because nearly 50% of the adult population chooses not to get vaccinated in the United States, and most of us know why that is. If this plan should go through it will change life dramatically for everybody. Quite likely our ability to keep our jobs and generally participate in daily life will be tied to whether or not we have been vaccinated. Possibly leaving or entering the country or obtaining health care will not be allowed without your current vaccine record in hand. We can easily see where this is going due to a recent ruling in New York denying a religious exemption for vaccination, (the court pointed to a 1905 Supreme Court decision (197 U.S. 11 (1905) JACOBSON v MASSACHUSETTS) which decided that a law mandating vaccination was NOT unconstitutional, effectively setting a precedent to disallow religious based vaccine exemptions in all states.

    What Can You Do?

    Please sign the petition here:


    Please also take a few minutes to tell HHS that you vehemently oppose the National Adult Immunization Plan because it has the potential to infringe upon your basic human rights. Here is a sample letter of opposition/comments that you can send to HHS Senior Advisor Rebecca Fish at Rebecca.Fish@hhs.gov:

    Outbreak of over 12,000 cases of measles in Ukraine is caused by recent vaccination campaign?

    By wmw_admin on April 29, 2019

    In recent years there has been a shortage of measles vaccines in Ukraine. Vaccination rates had dropped to 31% in 2016 and were the lowest in Europe. And yet there were hardly any cases of measles.

    In 2017 sufficient vaccines became available for a ‘catch-up campaign’ and 90% of the children in Ukraine received the MMR. Since then there has been an explosion of cases of measles. The number has already surpassed 12,000! Why is the media ignoring the current outbreak of measles in Ukraine? And what is really going on?

    Why no figures for 2017?
    The WHO (World Health Organization) keeps track of the disease and death rates of every country in the world for all (infectious) diseases. On May 4th 2018, the WHO published the following page on its website regarding measles in the Ukraine:

    Click to enlarge
    Ukraine is restoring immunization coverage in a gigantic effort to stop the outbreak of measles’

    ‘Over 12 000 people have been infected with measles in Ukraine so far this year. Of those affected, 9158 have required hospitalization and 9 have died, according to information provided by national health authorities as of 27 April 2018. Large-scale outbreak response measures have been undertaken since the start of the outbreak in 2017 to curb further spread of the disease and restore high routine immunization coverage.

    In 2008, 95% of eligible children in Ukraine received their second (and final) recommended dose of measles-mumps-rubella vaccine (MMR) on time according to the national routine schedule. By 2016, this rate had fallen to 31%, the lowest coverage in the WHO European Region and among the lowest in the world.

    Since July 2017, a national Measles Task Force, including the Ministry of Health, key stakeholders and partners such as WHO and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), has been working to vaccinate every eligible child as they reach the appropriate age for MMR vaccination according to the national routine immunization schedule.

    By the end of 2017, routine vaccination coverage had drastically improved compared to previous years: 93% of 1-year-olds received the first dose of MMR on time in 2017 and 91% of 6-year-olds received their second dose as recommended. Figures for January and February 2018 indicate that the country is on track to reach at least 95% routine coverage with both doses of MMR vaccine by the end of the year.’ [1]
    It could easily be concluded that the decreasing vaccination rate (from 95% in 2008 to 31% in 2016) is the cause of a gigantic measles outbreak in Ukraine. But the WHO is twisting reality in a cunning way.

    The following information comes from the WHO report ‘Global Measles and Rubella Update 2018’

    In 2016 – with a vaccination rate of 31% – there were only 90 ‘confirmed cases’, i.e. 90 cases of measles confirmed by a laboratory. There was a low vaccination rate but there was no epidemic either. And this also applied to the three years before 2016. From 2013 to 2016, there were on average only 50 cases per year.[2]

    More vaccines, more disease
    Since July 2017 , the ‘task force’ (WHO, UNICEF and the Ministry of Public Health) started to increase vaccination coverage. And immediately after July 2017, the numbers of measles cases began to increase. [3] The graph below runs from March 2016 to April 2018, and shows the number of measles cases per month. Red = confirmed by a laboratory Green = clinically determined
    It is striking that the red bars (cases lab confirmed as wild measles virus) rise less quickly than the green bars (cases clinically confirmed by doctor). Please read what the CDC and the ‘Nederlands Tijdschrift der Geneeskunde’ (‘Dutch Journal of Medicine’) have to say about this later on in this article.

    The measles diagnosis criteria defined by the official journal of the European Union

    The criteria for ‘clinical’ and ‘laboratory’ diagnoses are defined by the ‘Official Journal of the European Union’ as follows:
    Clinical criteria: Any person with fever AND Maculo-papular rash AND at least one of the following three: Cough, Coryza (Cold), Conjunctivitis (red eyes).

    Laboratory criteria: At least one of the following four:
    • Isolation of measles virus from a clinical specimen
    • Detection of measles virus nucleic acid in a clinical specimen
    • Measles virus specific antibody response characteristic for acute infection in serum or saliva
    • Detection of measles virus antigen by DFA in a clinical specimen using measles specific monoclonal antibodies
    Laboratory results need to be interpreted according to the vaccination status. If recently vaccinated, investigate for wild virus. [4]

    The laboratory criteria are much more thorough in their diagnosis of the measles than the clinical criteria
    Is it possible that the 12,000 Ukraine measles cases reported by WHO are exaggerated? The majority of the bar on the extreme right in the 2018 graph above is green and, therefore, those reported measles cases have not been confirmed by a laboratory.

    And worse, is it possible that these are mainly misdiagnosed clinical cases of vaccine strain measles that occurred after receipt of MMR vaccine? This question is logical because the data shows that in 2016, fewer children were being vaccinated and there were few reported measles cases; in 2017, more children got MMR vaccinations and there were more reported measles cases; in 2018, even more children got vaccinated and even more measles cases were reported, with the majority of cases clinically confirmed by doctors rather than positively lab confirmed.

    Is it wild type measles or vaccine strain measles?
    The Dutch Journal of Medicine published in 2017 stated:
    ‘Within 14 days after MMR vaccination, a patient may develop a disease that is comparable to infection with a wild-type measles virus. The incidence of infection with wild-type measles is low, so when this happens it is more likely that it is a response to vaccination. Additional research can cause unrest among the parents and therefore reassuring words are more appropriate.’ [5]
    The website of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has the following information:
    ‘Measles virus genotyping can play an important role in tracking transmission pathways during outbreak investigations. Genotyping results can help confirm, disprove, or detect connections among cases… Genotyping is also the only way to distinguish whether a person has wild-type measles virus infection, or a rash caused by a recent measles vaccination. A small percentage of measles vaccine recipients experience rash and fever 10 to 14 days following vaccination. During outbreaks, measles vaccine is administered to help control the outbreak, and in these situations, vaccine reactions may be mistakenly classified as measles cases. The vaccine strain of measles virus can be distinguished from wild-type viruses by determination of the genotype from clinical samples or virus isolates.’ [6]
    The WHO manipulates the figures and the media
    In recent times we have seen that the number of measles cases (12,000+) should be large enough to reach the media. 2,395 cases of illness in Italy were front page news in 2017. The ‘danger of the disease’ was overemphasized and the outbreak served as an argument to make it mandatory for ‘irresponsible parents’ to vaccinate their children. [7]

    A statement from Dr. Zsusanna Jakab, WHO Regional Director of Europe taken from a press release that also appeared on the WHO website at the beginning of 2018, has been widely quoted by all major newspapers in Europe.
    ‘Every new person affected by measles in Europe reminds us that unvaccinated children and adults, regardless of where they live, remain at risk of catching the disease and spreading it to others who may not be able to get vaccinated. Over 20,000 cases of measles, and 35 lives lost in 2017 alone, are a tragedy we simply cannot accept.’ – Dr Zsuzsanna Jakab, WHO Regional Director for Europe [8]
    But Dr. Zsuzsanna Jakab, who thinks that 20,000 cases across the whole of Europe is a ‘tragedy we cannot accept’, remains silent about 12,000 cases only in the Ukraine. Do the authorities know more than they want the public to know?

    What was the response of the health authorities to the sudden outbreak in Ukraine?
    The number of cases of measles confirmed by the laboratory is relatively small. But ‘Ukraine is restoring immunization coverage in a gigantic effort to stop the outbreak of measles, which affected more than 12,000 people this year’. It does not matter whether the campaign completely misses the target and probably causes more measles than it prevents because the reported cases may really be vaccine strain measles, not wild type measles cases. Nevertheless, a new order of vaccines has been placed to ‘combat the epidemic’.

    The Ministry of Health in Ukraine reported the following:
    ‘At the request of the Ministry of Health (MOH), the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) has delivered a new batch of measles, mumps and rubella vaccines. Ministry officials report receiving 800,000 doses.’ [8]
    And the Ukrainian Minister of Health adds:
    ‘For reliable protection against infectious diseases, vaccination levels should be higher than 95% (Editorial: it currently is 93%, but those 2%…) – then we can talk about collective immunity. For the first time, Ukraine is fully equipped with vaccines – reliable, safe and effective. I call parents to vaccinate children, and doctors encourage patients to vaccinate.’ – Minister of Health Dr. Ulana Suprun
    Incomprehensible. The health authorities have apparently forgotten that in 2006, in a year that the vaccination rate was 98%, there were still 42,742 cases of measles reported! [10,11]

    The bizarre behavior of politicians and policy makers, the manipulation of figures, the ‘selective’ reporting in the media and the increasing pressure to oblige parents to vaccinate… It is not surprising that all these exaggerated and inconsistent factors have caused people to lose their trust in the system. The situation in the Ukraine only adds to what so many of us know already.
