Mass Measles Hysteria Outbreak

An epidemic has taken over the United States, a crippling infection of measles hysteria. People with measles hysteria find themselves looking around at the people in the room and wondering which person is harboring the horrible contagious virus they will catch and take home to the kids and all their kids’ friends.

Wait a minute, when I was a kid that’s exactly how we did it! We spread highly contagious viruses at chicken pox parties, measles parties, oh yes and even mumps parties, only there was no fear involved. Family doctors were on board with all of it, it was a natural part of growing up to get the measles, it was normal for parents to want their kids to get these childhood maladies, to build up their immune systems, and get on with a healthy life.

We all had measles when I was a kid, in fact the CDC considers everyone born before the year 1957 to have lifetime immunity to the measles. Why? We all went through a benign, self-limiting disease that causes discomfort and the need to stay in bed with a fever. Medical textbooks from the pre-vaccine era describe measles as posing minimal risk to a well-nourished child.

And there is an outstanding reward awaiting measles sufferers: lifetime immunity! No. Boosters. Needed. Ever.

This is the method nature developed over a very long period of time, and the way human societies always processed microbes before vaccine enthusiasts came along. If you believe this to be false, then hurry down to a clinic and get your Bubonic plague vaccine and your scarlet fever vaccine right away. Oh wait, we don’t need vaccines to protect ourselves from those “sometimes deadly” microbes, but we do from measles?

When the measles vaccine was first promoted to the American public in the early 1960s, the rate of measles-linked deaths was down nearly 100 percent from the year 1900. “Before a vaccine was available, infection with measles virus was nearly universal during childhood with more than 90 percent of persons immune by age 15 years,” according the CDC’s operations manual, the Pink Book.[1]

How on Earth did we get from “everybody gets the measly measles” to “Got measles? Federal agents are on their way to your house to lock you inside and threaten you with arrest if you try to leave; notifying your workplace that you are hereby forbidden to work; notifying your school that you are not allowed to set foot on campus, and contacting everyone you have spoken to in the last two weeks so they can be locked up too.”

Interestingly, the CDC is silent so far on whether this current circulating measles infection involves the wild virus, or the vaccine-specific virus. As the CDC itself points out, this is an important question to resolve in order to understand which measles strain we are dealing with.

“Molecular epidemiology of measles viruses is an important component in outbreak investigations and for global surveillance of circulating wild–type measles strains,” according to the CDC website. “During outbreaks, measles vaccine is administered to help control the outbreak, and in these situations, vaccine reactions may be mistakenly classified as measles cases.”[2]

Yes, that is correct, the vaccine does cause the measles for some, and the symptoms are identical to the wild measles virus. The only way to tell the difference between the wild and the vaccine measles strains is through laboratory testing.

Then there is shedding. Shedding is what happens when the vaccine virus works its way through the body and viral particles are shed in droplets from the nose and saliva from the mouth, a nice way to spread the virus. As more and more people are injected with the vaccine, live vaccine measles shedding increases far and wide.

The mainstream media is having a heyday with the Disneyland measles, whipping up passion and fervor against the usual whipping boy: those horrible Neanderthal nitwits who refuse vaccines. Media accounts automatically blame people who are not vaccinated, even when the problem is vaccine failure. News reporters could easily do a little investigating and discover that the real-world outcome of vaccinating against measles with the MMR vaccine over a couple of generations is quite different than the story being told. Apparently it is much easier to just join in with the mindless chorus blaming every outbreak that comes along on the unvaccinated.

Many people are unaware that the MMR vaccine, of which measles is one component, has a few dirty secrets. One secret that the CDC, media, and local health departments are all desperate to avoid mentioning is widespread vaccine failure.

Thus, measles outbreaks also occur even among highly vaccinated populations because of primary and secondary vaccine failure, which results in gradually larger pools of susceptible persons and outbreaks once measles is introduced. This leads to a paradoxical situation whereby measles in highly immunized societies occurs primarily among those previously immunized.”[3]

This bears repeating: Measles in highly immunized societies occurs primarily among those previously immunized. Imagine that! The reward for getting repeatedly vaccinated against the measles is coming down with the measles.

In the interest of accuracy, we should no longer call measles a vaccine-preventable disease, it is only a vaccine-alterable disease. Where measles once only affected young kids at the age when the infection is mildest, vaccination with the laboratory measles virus has never prevented infection, but only altered the timing of infection.

Measles outbreaks now occur in older age groups than in the pre-vaccine era, age groups for whom measles poses a greater risk of complications. It has also pushed infection into much younger ages. The problem “too young to vaccinate” was never a problem before the measles vaccine was widely used, because babies received protection through mother’s milk, as long as the mother had experienced the measles herself.

There is another dirty secret about the MMR vaccine. This one involves fraud that goes all the way to the top of the CDC. We have all heard countless times that the MMR vaccine was thoroughly studied by the CDC and found to be entirely innocent of increasing the risk of autism. It turns out that the primary CDC study offered as proof of this claim was an utter fabrication. This, according to whistleblower William Thompson, a top researcher at the CDC and one of the authors of that study.[4] He has produced incriminating emails and handwritten instructions from CDC higher ups to back up his assertions that researchers were ordered to make up and publish different numbers so the conclusions of the study could be turned on their head. The actual results of the CDC study showed a greater than 300 percent increase in autism diagnoses for certain groups of children who received the MMR shot. Don’t be surprised if this is the first you’ve heard of this outrageous government scandal and cover-up, the media have obliged the government agencies and never spilled a word of it to the public.

There is another problem with the MMR vaccine, the mumps component. Two Merck scientists became whistleblowers a couple of years ago when they filed a lawsuit against Merck, asserting that the drug company had for years fudged the data to make the mumps vaccine appear to be as effective as promised.[5]

The scientists report that Merck engaged in fraud by selling to the U.S. government nearly four million doses of fraudulently tested, mislabeled and ineffective MMR vaccine every year for at least 10 years.

Merck apparently directed its scientists to test the MMR’s effectiveness not against wild mumps, but against the vaccine strain of mumps, to achieve a higher blood response. Then Merck added animal blood antibodies to the test blood, in order to make the immune response of human blood appear greater. As if that wasn’t enough cheating, Merck arbitrarily altered the final test data in order to fraudulently reach the effectiveness criteria required of the vaccine.

A federal judge has found that the two whistleblowers have sufficient evidence to go forward with a trial, even following Merck’s petition to the court to have the lawsuit thrown out. As a side note, the head of Merck’s vaccine division is none other than Julie Gerberding, whose job just prior to working for Merck was being director of the CDC. It looks as if she went from heading up an agency engaged in cheating and lying, to heading up a vaccine company with years of practice cheating and lying. Go figure.

Taken together, we have an enormous problem. We have public health officials anxious to wildly overstate the dangers of measles infection in order to scare people into getting the MMR vaccine, a vaccine that is failing to prevent measles in those inoculated, while spreading the age range of infection. We have the government agency charged with protecting the health of our citizens desperately hiding the truth it has known all along, that the MMR vaccine significantly increases the risk of autism for some children. And then we have Merck, the vaccine maker that supplies over half the vaccines that the U.S. government purchases each year, perpetuating massive fraud for more than a decade in order to continue selling a failed, ineffective vaccine.

The vaccinators have all the money, the backing of the government, and the mainstream media’s complicity in censoring the news to prevent factual, news about vaccines from exposing the whole sordid MMR saga. Oh yes, and the vaccine makers have complete immunity from any lawsuit for vaccine-induced disability or death of babies and children.

How ironic that those who ask legitimate questions about the science of entrenched mass vaccination strategies are accused of being tinfoil hat-wearing anti-science boneheads. Vaccinators claim that one-size-fits-all, government mandated vaccine policies are supported by sound scientific principles and clear observational evidence, yet these same pro-vaccine forces resort to name-calling and personal attack when confronted with the enormous body of peer-reviewed, published scientific evidence calling into question the assumptions and unproven hypotheses of vaccine policy and public health practices of mass vaccination. For some reason vaccinators feel entitled to a free pass to ignore time tested, universal rules of scientific inquiry.

Here is a sampling of questions about the missing science of mass vaccination that have yet to be answered by the vaccinators:

Why do public health officials continue to promote vaccines that have proven over and over they are failing badly in their job to prevent infection with the disease as claimed?

Why has there never been a single large-scale study in which the health outcomes of vaccinated children are compared to the health of children whose parents opt out of government-mandated vaccines?

Why do vaccine safety trials compare responses to a new vaccine with responses to another vaccine, rather than comparing the new vaccine to actual placebos in actual control groups?

Why are so-called vaccine safety studies conducted for days or weeks only, when the adverse reactions to vaccines are documented to occur months and even years following the injection?

Why are vaccines considered only at one at a time, each one in isolation, when in the real world children receive multiple vaccines when they visit the pediatrician’s office?

Why are medical doctors not required to report vaccine adverse reactions, just as they are required to report contagious diseases?

Who decided that the priority for CDC staff and the entire public health apparatus should be chasing down a few cases of measles, when we are in the midst of a galloping epidemic of chronic autoimmune/neurodevelopmental disease, in which a new diagnosis of autism is made every 11 minutes?

Kenneth Stoller, M.D. is one pediatrician not afraid to answer the question about the causes of our heartbreaking epidemic of regressive autism. It is an “environmentally triggered mitochondrial mediated gastro-immune encephalitic syndrome,” he said. “The autism epidemic is a neuroenvironmental disaster that has lasted more than a decade beyond when it should have been resolved because the perpetrators have too many friends in places of control and power.”[6]

Ivan Illich has summed up the public health crisis created by the vaccinators: “Modern medicine is the negation of health. It isn’t organized to serve human health, but only itself, as an institution. It makes more people sick than it heals.”

    Eloquently and informatively written, with your trademark humor, Darrel. This is EXCELLENT, and I will indeed be sharing it!

    Thank you for once again calling a spade a spade in what has become a Herculean effort to educate the American public about how they have been horrifically duped when it comes to vaccines…including being duped by the very people whose salaries they pay, people who are charged with protecting the health and well-being of our nation (i.e. those at the CDC, those at state departments of health, and elected officials, to name but a few).

      You are beyond irresponsible. Mother’s milk passes along immunity? What about the countless children who can’t or won’t breastfeed? This is not a conspiracy concocted by the CDC. This is modern medicine that saves lives. 500 children a year used to die from measles before the vaccine was introduced. You are essentially saying you are fine sacrificing those children’s lives because you believe the vaccine is not effective. Nearly 50 years of children’s lives saved means 25,000 children are still alive today because they were vaccinated. There is NO LINK between vaccines and autism. It is not a conspiracy. No one is hiding information from you. The benefits of vaccines outweigh the risks. Period. You are putting lives at risk…and you should be ashamed of yourself.

        Your assertion that there is no link between autism and vaccines is patently inaccurate. The government has compensated billions to the families of vaccine-damaged children. Numerous studies have been published in peer-reviewed scientific journals elucidating how vaccines injure susceptible children. Vaccine injury denial such as yours is rampant among pro-vaccinators, and great effort is put into hiding this tragic reality from common public awareness.

        You state twice that there is no conspiracy. I never used that word, however I do note that many vaccine industry stakeholders are cooperating to reach the same end, which is to limit the amount of negative information about vaccines. For its part, the mainstream media tells only the pro-vaccinator side of the story.

        I did not make up the claim that the MMR vaccine is ineffective, I provided in my article the reference where the good Dr. Gregory Poland at the Mayo Clinic breaks the news that the vaccine has failed, kaput, we either need a new vaccine or else a new strategy. He is the one that tells us previously inoculated people are the ones primarily susceptible measles.

        As for saving lives, the rate of death from measles in 1963 when the first measles vaccine was introduced in 1963 had plummeted nearly 100 percent already. For vaccine enthusiasts such as yourself to give the vaccine credit for accomplishing the last few percentage points in a long historic decline of the death rate is ludicrous.

    Thanks for this article. Just in the past few days, the knee jerk reactions about blaming “anti-vaxxers” has launched into hyperspace…”Oh my God! DISNEYLAND?!!! Those poor innocent children. It’s ALL YOUR FAULT, ANTIVAXXERS!!!!”

    I sort thru a sampling of the articles and comments, both for and against…and I am left wondering, “If your kid is vaccinated & you believe that vaccine to be the key to remaining healthy, then you have nothing to worry about.”

    I was a child in the 1960s and it wasn’t that scary – I was a healthy kid. You got to get out of school; eventually you got well.

    The death rate was only 1 in 1000, plus a similar rate for brain damage. It was 1 in 20 for pneumonia (but I was healthy).

    The scary part was reading about what happened to pregnant women. 40 years later, I still remember reading about the Swedish woman who had an abortion because she got German measles and there was a good chance her baby would be deformed. (After the abortion, they confirmed the baby was missing limbs. I don’t remember if there would have been brain damage, but I think so.)

    From the dreaded Centers For Disease control web site: “From 1963 to 1965, a rubella epidemic swept throughout the world. In the United States alone, about 11,000 babies died and 20,000 babies developed birth defects from rubella.”

    Maybe you weren’t alive when that scare went on. 30,000 dead or deformed sounds moderately bad to me.

    I think the reason to keep your healthy kids home is make sure it doesn’t spread. Measles has a 80-90% exposure/infection rate. Partly, it’s to protect your kids (2 in 1000 for dead or brain injuries is still not too good); but mostly it’s to protect others, particularly the old and the pregnant (and their babies).

    And, related to your analysis of getting together for Chicken Pox parties: Have you ever met anyone with shingles? It’s pretty painful and debilitating. We know about the connection between chicken pox and shingles now.

    I don’t want to read about women getting abortions because their babies are deformed ever again.

      I found the reference you cite from the CDC, however, no reference was given where they came up with those numbers, so I checked. The statement appears word for word, with no citation given, on a website maintained by a nonprofit organization called Immunizations for Public Health based in Galveston, Texas. It this case it appears that the CDC is providing “facts” that have no basis in fact whatsoever!

      If you are interested in actual, verifiable facts in place of opinion or whimsy, check this article on Medscape, written by Elias Ezike, MD: http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/968523-overview

      In 1969, the year rubella vaccine became the “R” in the MMR vaccine, there were 29 infant deaths due to rubella infection, not the 11,000 deaths claimed by the CDC to have occurred.

      You seem to suggest that chickenpox parties are bad because “we know about the connection between chickenpox and shingles now.” In fact, we did know about the connection before the vaccine was given, and an epidemic of shingles in adults was predicted, and this has definitely occurred. Please note what the CDC itself says about shingles: “Anyone who has had chickenpox or received chickenpox vaccine in the past may develop shingles.” The chickenpox is popularly believed to prevent shingles, but it does not.

    You had chicken pox as a child? Well, keep an eye out for symptoms of shingles.

    Why it was ok with the doctors – there wasn’t an alternative.

    For most kids it’s just a right of passage, but for some it can be a life and death struggle that they sometimes lose.

      Posted on February 10, 2015 at 12:21 am

      Whoever told you that getting the chickenpox vaccine prevents getting the shingles apparently forgot to first check with the CDC: “Anyone who has had chickenpox or received chickenpox vaccine in the past may develop shingles.”

      Before widespread use of the chickenpox vaccine, critics predicted that altering the incidence of wild virus circulating in the community would create an epidemic of shingles in the elderly. And they were right, which is what we have now. The reason? Exposure to children with chicken pox boosts one’s immunity to shingles, reduced exposure reduces the boost to immunity.

      As with the measles vaccine, before the chicken pox vaccine, virtually all children got the chicken pox at an age when an average, well-nourished child’s robust immune response is benign and self-limited. The vaccine does not prevent infection with chicken pox, only alters the timing to an age when there is greater risk of complications.

      Here is what the Pediatric Infectious Disease Journal in 2013 concluded about how poorly the vaccine is working, “Literature to-date indicates a relatively high rate of primary vaccine failure.” “Antibody titers fall during the first year post-vaccination.”
      And according to Merck’s vaccine package insert, about 4 percent of kids get chicken pox rashes from the vaccine.

      Thank you for providing the link about the dangers of getting the shingles. Did you notice that the link goes to a Merck company website promoting the merits of getting the shingles vaccine? By the way, the shingles vaccine is the same as the chickenpox vaccine only it has 14 times the amount of viral particles.

      So we now know the result of vaccinating a generation of children with the chicken pox vaccine: vaccinated kids still get the chickenpox, the immunocompromised children who used to get the chickenpox still get it, and we have an epidemic of shingles in adults. Oh yes, and a great deal of money was collected by vaccine makers.

    Vaccines have prevented tens of thousands of kids from getting sick and, in many cases, dying. Look at the historical records of the vast suffering caused by infectious disease that are now preventable by vaccines. The facts do not lie.

    To advocate against vaccines is just irresponsible. Basically you are saying that you want tens of thousands of kids to get sick and possible die every year. Because that is what we will know will happen. But apparently you don’t think that preventing measles or polio or whatever is worthwhile.

    Those of us who care about the health of our children are appalled that you are putting our children at risk by spreading this anti-scientific nonsense and creating a public health hazard.

    The facts and the science are very clear. You need to get over your paranoid conspiracy theories and stop putting children at risk.

    • admin
      Posted on February 9, 2015 at 10:42 pm

      You speak of “facts” and “the science is very clear” in favor of vaccination. You assert that I am putting children at risk by “spreading anti-scientific nonsense.” You state the opinion that “tens of thousands of kids will get sick and possible [sic] die every year if children are not vaccinated.”

      On one point we agree, “The facts do not lie.” Historic statistics clearly show that vaccines showed up on the scene only after other factors had reduced the death rate from childhood infectious disease to near zero. To extrapolate that this near-complete historic decline in death from these diseases will reverse and suddenly climb if we do not continue with an intervention that arrived at the end of that decline is doubtful.

      In sum, the views you have stated suggest that your about vaccines comes from newspaper articles, television news, and government public health vaccine propaganda. The world of vaccine failure, vaccine injury, and massive corporate and government fraud awaits you, if you are willing to look. A good place to start would be the book, Dissolving Illusions, by Humphries and Bystrianyk. You will find that the questions I raise are precisely scientific, because they underline just how scientifically unsupported are the arguments in favor of mass vaccination.

    So I want to know how many young men were made permanently sterile at your mumps parties? I am of the generation of polio. Give me vaccines! I can’t believe people buy into your unsupported claims.

    • admin
      Posted on February 9, 2015 at 10:42 pm

      The claim that young men will become sterile from getting the mumps is a common bit of fear propaganda generated by pro-vaccinators. I just checked with the CDC website to answer your question and it states that mumps “rarely causes sterility.” It also states, “Some complications of mumps are known to occur more frequently among adults than among children. Adults have a higher risk for mumps meningoencephalitis than children.” Contrary to your belief, the mumps vaccine does not even prevent mumps. Recent history has shown us that mumps outbreaks seem to occur among the vaccinated. The mumps vaccine does indeed alter the incidence of mumps for some, yet it merely postpones infection to a later age at which time it is much more dangerous for those who contract it. You are welcome to your vaccines, and since you believe they work just fine you should not feel threatened if I don’t join you, since you are certain that your vaccines protect you.

    The references do not support any of the author’s points. The author is being purposely deceptive and selective of information to prove an unsubstantiated idea.

    The “whistleblower” quoted in the article in the same referenced press release went on to say “I want to be absolutely clear that I believe vaccines have saved and continue to save countless lives. I would never suggest that any parent avoid vaccinating children of any race. Vaccines prevent serious diseases, and the risks associated with their administration are vastly outweighed by their individual and societal benefits.”

    For whatever reason this author is pro increasing the number of lives lost needlessly to infection, beware of his motives and conclusions.

      Posted on February 9, 2015 at 10:40 pm

      The reference you speak of was made to substantiate that William Thompson, one of the top researchers at the CDC is indeed a whistleblower. This man has confessed to participating in fraud at the highest levels of the CDC. It is necessary for me to refer to his lawsuit, since there has not been a shred of news reported about it. We have hdd a complete media blackout of the news that CDC researchers have been cooking the data for more than a decade. I never stated that William Thompson does not “believe” in vaccines, he does so wholeheartedly. And yet how ironic that in his job he is required to fudge the numbers in order to hide the link between the MMR vaccine and autism!

      As for vaccines preventing disease, you failed to mention my reference to Gregory Poland, MD, head of vaccine research at the Mayo Clinic, who wrote that the vaccine has failed, and that we are in a “paradoxical situation whereby measles in highly immunized societies occurs primarily among those previously immunized.” This information appeared in 2012 in the peer-reviewed journal Vaccine. So much for measles being “vaccine-preventable.”

      As to your assertion that my article contributes to losing lives needlessly to infection, I am at a loss to find any loss of life among the measles cases at hand. Meanwhile, a child is diagnosed on the autism spectrum every eleven minutes. Talk about lost life.

    I grew up in the fifties. We went to bed with a box of comics and lemonade if we were lucky for a few days for such things. My kids grew up in the seventies. Ditto. Although usually on the couch watching television and no lemonade unless freshly made.

    Who is driving the vaccine madness? And no, I don’t believe in conspiracies, I think humans are greedy, arrogant, ignorant and incompetent enough to make enormous mistakes without planning.

    Just before I completed college, I worked for a year in a pilot program in Wisconsin working with a small group of severely and profoundly developmentally disabled children and adults. The purpose was to find ways to help these 8 adults and 8 children acquire the living and social skills to move from an institution and into a group home setting. I was an OT Assistant. One of my students an adult male named John who was very low functioning had no speech other than saying “oo” and making squealing noises. He was always nervous, flapping his hands, pacing about and focused on finding ways to sneak treats. My session with John focused on teaching him to put on his t-shirt independently. John was a “typically developing” boy until he got the measles around age 8 and had severe brain swelling. He became severely disabled and, as was more customary then, he was placed in an institutional setting.

    Every time I read an article or opinion piece about measles, I remember John. I left that job after a year when I graduated. After our year of working together, John was still not put on his t-shirt. Measles is mild for the majority of cases, but it also has the potential of severe consequences like brain swelling (encephalitis) and even death. Measles has been around for centuries and there are peer reviewed science and historic data and articles from around the world. Perhaps John can put a face on the numbers. .

      Tragically, measles in very rare cases does cause severe complications, although historically, complications from a measles infection are associated only with immune compromised people and malnourished people. The CDC reports that there have been no deaths from the measles in the past ten years. By contrast, the federal Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System recorded 108 deaths associated with the Measles/Mumps/Rubella (MMR) vaccine during that same time period. I have not seen reports from the agency on the number or extent of complications from the measles. As I noted in the article, top vaccine researchers tell us that it is primarily the vaccinated who now contract measles at ages when the risk of complications is much greater. The CDC in its Pink Book explains that babies are at risk for measles at a much younger age now than before mass vaccination with the measles vaccine was widespread because today moms do not get the actual measles, which used to provide protection to tiny babies through mama’s milk. Whenever the assertion is made that the measles vaccine prevents the measles, they are stating a belief that simply is not supported by the scientific evidence at hand.

    Well written cogent article. I’m very glad I ran across it.
    You make reference to Dr. Polands paper written in 2012 stating the Measles Vaccine has failed. You’d be interested to know Poland stated that fact in 1994. Here is the pubmed abstract:

    -Arch Intern Med. 1994 Aug 22;154(16):1815-20.
    Failure to reach the goal of measles elimination. Apparent paradox of measles infections in immunized persons.
    Poland GA1, Jacobson RM.
    Conclusion:
    The apparent paradox is that as measles immunization rates rise to high levels in a population, measles becomes a disease of immunized persons. Because of the failure rate of the vaccine and the unique transmissibility of the measles virus, the currently available measles vaccine, used in a single-dose strategy, is unlikely to completely eliminate measles. The long-term success of a two-dose strategy to eliminate measles remains to be determined. http://archinte.jamanetwork (dot) com/article.aspx?articleid=619215

    -The measles vaccine has failed, he explained two years ago in a prescient paper, “The re-emergence of measles in developed countries.” In that paper, he warned that due to factors that most haven’t noticed, measles has come back to be a serious public health threat. Poland sees the need for a major rethink, after concluding that the current measles vaccine is unlikely to ever live up to the job expected of it: “outbreaks are occurring even in highly developed countries where vaccine access, public health infrastructure, and health literacy are not significant issues. This is unexpected and a worrisome harbinger — measles outbreaks are occurring where they are least expected,” he wrote in his 2012 paper, listing the “surprising numbers of cases occurring in persons who previously received one or even two documented doses of measles-containing vaccine.” During the 1989-1991 U.S. outbreaks, 20% to 40% of those affected had received one to two doses. In a 2011 outbreak in Canada, “over 50% of the 98 individuals had received two doses of measles vaccine.”

    Dr. Gregory Poland is Professor of Medicine and founder and leader of Mayo Clinic’s Vaccine Research Group. Poland, is one of the world’s most admired, most advanced thinkers in the field of vaccinology.

    I have been researching pubmed for a few months now and I have accumulated over 65 pages of abstracts of either outbreaks of childhood illnesses in highly vaccinated populations or vaccine failure. Many of the abstracts go back 30 years so it’s astounding how much has been hidden from the public. Reading the abstracts and some of the studies after following the links it’s unnerving to realize that the officials in charge of public health have never had any intention of being a champion for the public. Profit, greed, arrogance, denial, control of all information, and protection of careers are the reasons the system continues to operate. There are too many with too much to lose if the truth should be known. This machine has now been in operation for over 100 years ironically based on an experiment that had no testing, no control group, by a man who experimented on his son and another child and the medical cartel neglects to tell the public that Jenner’s child and the other young boy he experimented on lived their lives as vaccine damaged children suffering terrible neurological problems and both died at the age of 21 from TB. They also don’t revel that Jenner was not a medical doctor-he purchased his degree. So the very foundation of vaccination is based on fraud and that fraud continues to this day.

    I was impressed by your responses to the “troll” comments on this board. Trolling tactics have become so obvious now days you can smell them through the computer screen. They use the same psy-op or troll tactics:
    -conspiracy theory: even if the commenter or writer doesn’t mention it because the idea it to drag you into something that distracts from the article content.
    -half-truth: mixing these with some real information makes them sound reasonable and it a person isn’t well researched they could actually buy into what they are saying.
    -time old tactics of mentioning polio & smallpox. no one has polio, no one has smallpox. Reality is polio and smallpox are still around just under different names and diagnosis. Example: EV-D68. A couple of years ago doctors in California were saying it was if they didn’t know Polio was gone, what the children had could be Polio. Never heard from those doctors again. An oddity that no journalist looked into. EV-D68 was not found in unvacinated children-or it hasn’t been reported.
    -In the United States alone, about 11,000 babies died and 20,000 babies developed birth defects from rubella.”
    I’ve seen this close to 100 times on various blogs. There is absolutely no documentation to substantiate these number. CDC pulled them out of their rear just lie the 36,000 die from flu every year.
    -chickenpox and shingles. Shingle vaccine prevents shingles. LOL. My uncle got the shingles vaccines and developed shingles 2 days later. Chickenpox-shingles, the same thing as you stated. Stupid trolls should ask people who given the chickenpox vaccine why the parent is told to keep the vaccinated child away from smaller unvaccinated children and grandparents.

    the rest of the troll comments to you are just ridiculous. You noticed that they didn’t respond back to your comments because they couldn’t discredit you. The sure trademark of a troll-cut and run.

      Thanks for providing more citations by Dr. Poland. It is simply astounding that mass vaccination never has been about public health and prevention of disease. The big question in my mind is how so many highly intelligent people have come to be under the influence of the vaccinators/vaccine-injury denialists. I always laugh at the ignorance of the trolls who blame Jenny McCarthy for “the anti-vaxxer movement.” There is no movement, just thousands of parents of vaccine-injured children who are righteously angry that their kid got thrown under the bus to protect the health of the vaccine cartel, plus thousands more who are lucky enough to get have gotten the facts before the fact of vaccine-induced injury and death. Hundreds of years ago people stood up to fight back when compulsory vaccination was in its infancy for the same reason they are standing up now, to fight for the civil right to refuse vaccines for themselves and their own children, to fight for common sense.
