For some reason, the news media are covering the opioid addiction crisis, and government officials such as state attorneys general are suing pharmaceutical companies. But when it comes to the vaccine issue and the problem of vaccine injuries, the situation is in the reverse. People who are complaining about vaccine injuries are dismissed by the “authorities” and there is heavy criticism thrown against those who choose not to vaccinate. Why is this?
On the opioid issue, in my opinion the biggest problem is the damn doctors who are prescribing those pain killers to people who don’t really need them, and getting them addicted. We need to publicly name and shame those doctors. And that is what I think about that.
But the opioid issue is not why I’m writing this post. It’s the vaccine issue. I have written here about the vaccine issue and posted several links to articles on the issue. My main concern is the government making vaccines mandatory, whether for kids or for adults.
Sorry, in a free society people have a right to not have their bodies subjected to forcible intrusion of any kind. Right?
The problem is that, because of the power that the pharmaceutical industry has especially in its collusions with government bureaucracies, many people are more influenced by propaganda and fear-mongering than by rational discussions of the issues.
Vaccine skeptics are now labeled “anti-vaxxers,” and “dangerous,” although many of those people are really ex-vaxxers, they are mothers of vaccine-injured kids. For example, the heroic mothers who were engaged in protests in California to try to derail the bill that Gov. Gavin Newsom signed into law to mandate vaccines and/or remove exemptions.
Another problem is, regarding how influenced people can be by mass media, many news media outlets have pharmaceutical companies as their important sponsors. So, news editors, producers and reporters don’t want to “rock the boat” when it comes to the vaccine issue. And also a lot of people don’t read, so they are not exposed to non-Establishment medical information, such as the rates of vaccine injuries, the fact that injuries are way under-reported, the connections between Big Pharma execs and FDA bureaucrats, and so on.
Regarding the California mandate issue, in her comments on the mothers who were demonstrating, chanting and disrupting legislative sessions, Bretigne Shaffer writes:
More fundamentally though, these laws represent a violation of some of our basic rights: The right to bodily autonomy for ourselves and for our children, and the right to associate freely with others (in this case, schools) without interference from the state. In essence, the State of California is holding hostage our children’s ability to attend school (public or private), unless we subject them to medical procedures we may not approve of.
So what do we do when we are faced with illegitimate laws that violate our rights?
Those mothers had the right idea when they shut down the California Senate last Monday: Disrupt the activities of those who would trample our rights, and make it impossible for them to do their jobs.
I thoroughly agree with this view of non-violent civil disobedience. When the people’s rights are being trampled by the rulers, they are right to have the courage to exercise their First Amendment right to protest, and even engage in civil disobedience if necessary.
Dr. Mercola also has a recent article on vaccine injuries and mandates, doctors withholding the information on the risks of vaccines, and the bureaucrats who are now taking over medical decisions in California. This vaccine fascism (call it what it is, quite frankly) is also going on in New York and other states, by the way.
Dr. Mercola points out some facts that we don’t or rarely hear in the mainstream news:
Another example is “Deaths Reported to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System, United States, 1997-2013, published in 2015. In this report, it’s stated that of the 1,469 child death reports, 79.4% had received one or more vaccines on the same day they died.
The most common cause of death, based on autopsy records, was sudden infant death syndrome, accounting for 44% of cases, followed by asphyxia (6%), septicemia (4.9%) and pneumonia (4.6%). In adults, the vaccine associated with the greatest number of deaths was inactivated influenza vaccine, which featured in 51.4% of adult deaths reported to VAERS.
Despite these shocking findings, the report concludes that “No concerning pattern was noted among death reports submitted to VAERS during 1997-2013.” How can the fact that 79.4% of infant deaths occur on the same day that they’re vaccinated be a pattern of no concern?
Unfortunately, it seems that most people aren’t getting any of this kind of information. Information is necessary to make a decision, and that is why people have a right to consent or not consent to any kind of intrusion or medical treatment.
In a free society, nothing should be involuntary as ordered by the government! Don’t you think so?
In California, a government bureaucrat will be the final authority on medical exemptions for vaccines, not actual medical doctors. And this is very dangerous. It’s bad enough that we have doctors who are in bed with pharmaceutical companies and there may be a quid pro quo going on with the vaccines and other drugs being given out by doctors like candy. But when a bureaucrat is in charge, in my opinion it is reminding me of the awful things I have heard about in medicine in the Soviet Union.
And also, now that Gov. Newsom has signed the bill into law, I hope that medical freedom activists will monitor which bureaucrats have that actual authority, and whether those bureaucrats have any ties with pharmaceutical companies.
And finally, a great article by Dr. Meryl Nass, MD posted on Health Impact News, with a lot of information for those who want more information on the vaccine issue. Apparently, Canada is catching up with the U.S. and the crony welfare queens of Big Pharma are getting rich based on mass ignorance, hysteria and propaganda.
I will just quote from the first several paragraphs here:
I am a veteran of the vaccine war in the US, and today I feel compelled to speak about what I saw in that war.
Legislators were forced to change their votes to revoke vaccine exemptions and rescind the historic right to consent to medical procedures.
The vaccine war is a dirty war, in which platitudes about protecting the most vulnerable are invoked by the same pharmaceutical companies that paid $2.7 billion in criminal penalties in the US between 2012 and 2015.
The vaccine industry generates enormous profits (estimated 10-40%), benefits from a government-guaranteed market, and receives almost total liability protection.
No other industry can rival these benefits. And this industry’s rapacious desire to grow and guarantee its Canadian market is the reason we are here today.
Let me add context to this discussion by noting that in 2014, the NY Times said it cost $2200 to fully vaccinate one child.
At that price, it cost $163 billion dollars to fully vaccinate every US child.
May I apologize at the outset for using mostly US data? I provide Canadian and New Brunswick information when available.
Pharma’s Pilgrimage to New Brunswick
Since March 2019, representatives of the three largest vaccine manufacturers in North America: GSK, Merck and Sanofi, have made their way to New Brunswick to meet with ministers, public servants and lawmakers.
This is not coincidental. Pharmaceutical companies are colluding to expand on legislative victories gained in the US.
Using a media storm over measles, censorship of numerous vaccine-related websites, new support for mandates from professional organizations that have benefitted from industry largesse, and deals with Democratic party leaders, the right to religious and philosophic vaccine exemptions has been voted away by legislatures in California, New York and Maine.
In the recent case of New York, the Speaker of the NY Assembly was caught on videotape directing a committee member to change his vote in order for the mandate legislation to move forward.
This was not an idle pilgrimage to one of Canada’s smallest provinces. For Pharma it is the gateway to all of Canada.
The vaccine industry in 2019 is at a crossroads.
On the one hand, the vaccine business is booming. Several vaccines have been newly licensed, a robust industry-FDA revolving door has been established, and the children of North America are receiving more vaccines than ever before.
Merck, for example, reported increased sales in the second quarter of 2019 for Gardasil HPV vaccine of 46% (to over $3 billion US annually) compared to last year, and increased sales of 58% for its MMRV (measles, mumps, rubella and varicella) vaccine.
These are Merck’s 3d and 4th biggest sellers. This year’s US measles outbreak (about 1200 cases) and media-driven fears of contagion contributed to vaccine uptake.
On the other hand, the industry does not want to shoulder the considerable expense of developing, testing and licensing new vaccines–over 100 of which are in development–without a government guarantee that they will be purchased.
Vaccines are being developed for everything from acne to cancers.
Vaccine mandates guarantee a vaccine market, now and in the future. Mandates put in place today will enforce the uptake of vaccines on the currently required list, plus other vaccines yet to be added.
I very much recommend that article. It goes on to give a lot of important information that most people will find very useful. I say “most” because obviously the cronies of Big Pharma will not find it in their own interest. That is why there is so much censorship going on now in social media, Amazon deleting books with critical vaccine information (that Amazon ignorantly or dishonestly calls “misinformation”) and so on. I really hope that pattern reverses itself.
