Over the past several weeks corporate media has inundated the public with news items, stories, interviews and plenty of rhetoric about the Measles “outbreak” in California. A lot of blame is being placed on the “anti-vaccination” or anti-vaxxer community saying they have created the perfect situation for an outbreak to take place.
An ABC report released today says the CDC has documented 121 confirmed measles cases in 17 states since Jan. 1, 2015. According to health officials, the recent outbreak originated earlier this year by a group of unvaccinated people who visited the Disneyland theme park in Anaheim, California. Is the Measles outbreak becoming the US’s Ebola epidemic?
The Government Already Admitted Vaccines Are Harmful
The fear-factor runs rampant while listening, reading or watching corporate media. They will have you believing you may possibly die from the Measles, but in truth, no one has died from measles in the United States in the past 10-years; while in fact 108 people have died from the scheduled MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella) vaccine.
Most baby boomers had all of the childhood diseases and remained healthy. We never knew anyone who died from these illnesses. We knew plenty who had been ill in varying degrees from measles, chicken pox, mumps, etc., but none that had died.
Especially disturbing is the hard to find information that consists of pay-outs related to other vaccines, such as the Flu Vaccine that have already been given by the government to those that have been injured and surviving family members of dead victims. By paying out, the government admits the guilt and culpability of the pharmaceutical companies aka PhRMA, but covers for them anyway.
The Flu Vaccine is considered the most dangerous of all existing vaccines.
For veterans, anyone exposed to Agent Orange (Monsanto) during tours of duty in Viet Nam and other locations in East Asia now have Diabetes. Any veteran with Diabetes that walks into a VA (Veterans Administration) Facility anywhere will be asked if they were stationed in Viet Nam and exposed to Agent Orange during their tour of duty. At least 24% of Veterans have Diabetes compared to the 8% of the general population. That statistic should cause pause.
It is already widely known among veterans yet still debated and theorized that Gulf War Syndrome was caused by the vaccinations that active duty members received before deployment to the Middle East during Gulf War I (Operation Desert Storm). And, certain conditions such as CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) and Fibromyalgia were also caused by vaccinations that the active duty get during Basic Training and/or before deployments to a wartime theatres both before and since Gulf War 1.
What Is Corporate Media Saying?
Corporate media has rolled out their pundits, experts and doctors — who in some cases have a vested interest in the pharmaceutical companies and the stocks they own and perhaps have gotten wealthy on.
Dr. Paul Offit, author of “Autism’s False Prophets” has a lengthy resume and is a holder of a rotavirus vaccine patent that has been taken off of the market. After doing a bit of research, it is also revealed that he is a consultant with pharmaceutical company, Merck. Just this past week he was on Democracy Now pushing and hard selling the mandating of vaccines. These conflicts of interest are systemic with these “experts” and many of the doctors and other health care professionals that are pushing vaccines on a mostly unsuspecting public who do not do adequate research and merely trust their doctors.
Dr. Paul Offit and many others would also like to abolish all waivers and religious exemptions.
The newest rhetoric in the corporate media is a plethora of articles about “measles parties.” Some have stated measles parties took place in the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s to build immunity for children and that they exist even now in the homeschooling/anti-vaccination communities. Now the corporate media says these parties are taking place nationwide even though there is currently no evidence of that happening anywhere.
What Do We Already Know?
The pharmaceutical companies cannot be sued. They have had legal immunity since 1986 and this was upheld by the US Supreme Court in 2011.
Many parents believe that the vaccinations their children have received have caused sickness, conditions such as autism, disabilities and irreparable physical and mental damage. In spite of that knowledge, many parents choose to vaccinate their children because they are afraid not to. The laws differ in every state regarding waivers to the vaccination mandates such as for religious purposes, for example and on the requirements for attendance in public schools and daycare centers.
The US does not have a history of treating its citizens well or operating in their best interests when it comes to medical issues. Think Tuskegee Airmen, Agent Orange, Depleted Uranium and more. Parents should explore both sides and do their own research in order to make educated decisions on behalf of their children’s well-being.
The government does not own our bodies. We do not have to do as we are told by the media. Just like with other issues such as abortion, Americans have a right to determine and make decisions about what happens to their bodies. With the recent corporate media regurgitation of the measles story repeatedly, there seems to be another agenda at work. Possibly the mandating of vaccines to everyone in the US?
Don’t even think this couldn’t happen.
Words Of Wisdom
“No doubt about it: without vaccinations, Big Pharma would lose an important profit center…” ~ Mirela Monte
“Last year 1 in every 500,000 Americans came down with the measles. Nearly all recovered in a few days without serious consequences. At the same time 1 in 68 American children were diagnosed with autism or for every case of measles there were 7000 cases of autism. I ask myself which is the real epidemic here?” ~ Dr. Elice.
“Whether you’re pro-vaccine, anti-vaccine, or fall somewhere in the middle, the questions you need to ask yourselves are as follows:
Do you want to live in a world, where you cannot freely refuse a medical procedure that carries risk of injury or death? I’m not questioning your comfort level with today’s vaccine schedule, because today’s vaccine schedule will change. New vaccines and additional doses are added all the time. children today receive as many as 49 doses of 14 vaccines before they reach age six, which is roughly 12 times higher than the number of vaccines administered to children back in 1940. With more than 220 new vaccines in the developmental pipeline for children and adults…and no end in sight..the question you must ask yourself is ARE YOU CERTAIN you will be 100% comfortable with vaccines that are added to the mandated list in the future? If you say that yes, you’re comfortable, then you’re either a) not expecting to be a parent or grandparent, b) don’t have to worry about it because your kids are grown and out of the house, or c) lying to prove a point. No critical thinker, no honest person, would ever sign off on the sight-unseen vaccine schedule of the future. And yet that’s what you’re doing when you condemn the people who are fighting for your right to refuse. YOU have the right to refuse, should you ever choose to use it, because the very “anti-vaccine” people you demonize have been fighting for us all.”
“Right now, the burden of “herd immunity” falls on small children, but that is changing. Vaccine manufacturers see an untapped market in adult vaccines and are coming for you next. What will you do if your state, your employer, or your insurance company forces you to get a vaccine that you simply don’t want? It hasn’t happened to you yet, but if the right to refuse is eroded, it will happen to you sooner than you might think. Who then will you turn to? Your legislators who get campaign donations from pharmaceutical companies? The CDC that has former pharma executives sitting on the board? Who will you turn to if you ever want to say no? There will be no one.”
“Once we enter the slippery slope of removing and individual’s right to refuse medical procedures that carry a risk of injury or death, once we remove an individual’s right to speak for him/herself and his/her children, we open ourselves up to an insidious new era, where other drugs and other procedures can be mandated. I heard (on NPR, interestingly enough) that there are people who want to test for a gene marker that’s been found in mass shooters in the hopes that they can put the carriers of that gene on medications in early childhood. Sounds great, right? But many of us carry genes that will never be expressed. You could be a carrier of that gene. Or your child could be a carrier. So if we follow the “for the greater good” mentality behind vaccines (or the Nazi’s “for the greater good” mentality behind eugenics (breeding out illness), we are looking at forcing people who may never express a sociopathic gene to take antipsychotics, just in case. Because that’s what forced vaccination does. It asks children who may never come into contact with a particular virus to accept a vaccine just in case. And that’s what eugenics was all about. It sterilizes people who can pass on a genetic disease just in case. Forced vaccination is a human rights violation, and to support it when you know that the government’s own Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System exists and lists people who have died as a result of vaccines is unethical at best, sociopathic at worst.”
“The ethical thing to do is to allow people their right to refuse and leave it up to doctors and big pharma (who have marketing budgets larger than the GDP of some countries) to do a better job of convincing parents that vaccines are safe. We can start by reversing the law that grants vaccine manufacturers total immunity from vaccine injury lawsuits. Because as it stands, you can’t sue a vaccine manufacturer if your child is injured or killed by a vaccine, even in cases where they could’ve made a safer vaccine and chose not to or when they failed to recall a contaminated lot# in a timely manner. Think about that. You can’t sue the manufacturer. That immunity from liability does more to shake parents’ confidence in vaccines than anything else out there.” Author Unknown.
