Vaccines are purported to be one of the real wonders of modern medicine -- nipping in the bud a disease before it even thinks about causing a problem. Thus the advocates of vaccines claim responsibility for saving lives, alleviating pain and suffering, and so forth and so on -- until you need a vaccine for the stomach nausea induced by the claims.
As it turns out, however, the evidence is becoming increasingly clear that any imagined beneficial effects of vaccines have been overshadowed by the detrimental effects. This lack of awareness of such overshadowing is caused in large measure by the greed of pharmaceutical companies, various Medical Organizations, and, of course, their happy co-conspirators in the Media, and government(s).
There is, for example, mounting evidence that vaccinations are one of the causes of autism. This alarming development may be the result of not so much the vaccines themselves, but the cumulative effect of some very potent drugs, many of them using thimerosol, a mercury toxin, as preservatives. The horrific aspect of the problem is that it’s the children -- the ones who are having no choice with respect to their own behalf in being vaccinated -- who are receiving the brunt end of the vaccine plague.
Recently, the obvious link between vaccines and autism have reached the Media... albeit the media in this case being MSNBC, a news outlet far removed from the knee jerk reactionaries who would defend the pharmacidal industries to the death (literally!) in their quest for profit at the expense of the health of... just about everyone. The usual suspect is, of course, thimerosol... aka a mercury based toxin. The point made more recently, however, is that before 1988... before Ronald Reagan's administration had worked its magic -- the number of autism cases was like 1 in 2500. At that time, less than ten vaccinations were in vogue. After that, the number of routine vaccinations increased to 24... and the autism occurrence rate has since climbed to about 1 in 167. The obvious link between vaccines and autism was thus undeniable... at least from an honest viewpoint. The MSNBC report is on a video at Brass Check... which is worth checking out.
It should be noted, however, that there is more than one view of autism... but mercury is so well established as a toxin... and contributes to so many other afflictions, that nothing can really reduce the liabilities of the pharmacidal corporations for their criminal acts of maiming, murder and mayhem.
The odds are that any given child will never experience an obvious, serious reaction to a vaccination. Or be struck by lightning. Yet it is happening more and more often -- and much more frequently then anyone being struck by lightning. Furthermore, young children with fragile immune systems are at high risk for adverse reactions to vaccines. On a more fundamental level, their immune systems are in fact being compromised, but any negative effects which do arise, are being diagnosed as something else -- anything else -- other than that due to a vaccine. And perhaps not for years after the vaccination.
(5/18/2011) Jon Rappoport does an excellent job of succinctly exposing the misinformation and claims of vaccine enthusiasts in his article, Vaccine Nation. Rappoport, in fact, does an excellent job in most of his articles -- via his No More Fake News site -- about the seeming insanity of the old paradigm of which most of us are afflicted. Vaccines is just one of the more insidious monsters of this particular genre.
The book, What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Childhood Vaccinations [Warner Books] provides an extensive and sometimes disconcerting background on vaccines and their administration in the United States. Written by Dr. Stephanie Cave, a Baton Rouge, Louisiana family practitioner specializing in treatment of children with autism and ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder), the book provides guidelines for minimizing risks. Dr. Cave examines the unprecedented increase in childhood-onset disabilities and the acceleration of immunizations to children, and calls for additional research into the likely connection between these two factors.
It is noteworthy that Cave does not advocate a ban on vaccines, nor does she recommend parents stop vaccinating their children. She does, however, encourage parents to become educated about the vaccines and their options for changing the schedule, dosages and frequency of some vaccines and for the parents to question the necessity of others.
Dr. Cave is not a lone voice crying in the wilderness. One leading national physician organization formally called for a moratorium on all government Mandated Vaccines and passed a resolution to that end at their annual meeting. This resolution by the Members of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) was passed without a single “no” vote. (The resolution and an accompanying mandatory vaccine fact sheet is posted at www.aapsonline.org.)
Jane M. Orient, MD, AAPS Executive Director, said, “Our children face the possibility of death or serious long-term adverse effects from mandated vaccines that aren’t necessary or that have very limited benefits.” But she also clarified that, “This is not a vote against vaccines. This resolution only attempts to halt blanket vaccine mandates by government agencies and school districts that give no consideration for the rights of the parents or the individual medical condition of the child.”
In noting the problem, it has been observed that forty two states have policies which insure Mandatory Vaccines, and thus many children are required to have as many as 22 shots before first grade. Also, as a condition for school attendance, many school districts require vaccination for diseases such as hepatitis B -- primarily an adult disease, usually spread by multiple sex partners, drug abuse or an occupation with exposure to blood. And yet, children under the age of 14 are three times more likely to suffer adverse effects -- including death -- following the hepatitis B vaccine, than to catch the disease itself.
At one point, students in Utica, New York were sent home from school, and told they could not return until they had been received hepatitis B vaccinations. Furthermore, parents were then threatened by Child Protective Services with possible seizure of their children based on ‘educational neglect.’ “It’s obscene to threaten to seize a child just because his parents refuse medical treatment that is obviously unnecessary and perhaps even dangerous,” said Dr. Orient. “AAPS believes that parents, with the advice of their doctors, should make decisions about their children’s medical care -- not government bureaucrats. This Resolution affirms that position.”
The aspect of Mercury in Childhood Vaccines is perhaps the most horrific of problems, in that not only does the vaccine additive potentially cause autism and neurological damage, but there is some evidence that the United States Federal Government knew about the negative possibilities and thereafter simply ignored them -- ostensibly for profit for certain corporations and other indefensible motives.
The problem is, however, much larger than childhood inoculations. Now, predicated on 9-11-2001, the United States government wants to vaccinate everyone against Smallpox. The fact is the vaccine might cause thousands of unnecessary deaths due to negative Drug Reactions, and that furthermore, the smallpox vaccine is likely:
1) ineffective against any strain of smallpox which might be used as a weapon,
2) unvaccinated individuals would not infect vaccinated individuals, and
3) there is an implied assumption that the vaccinations are any good to begin with!
These 3 facts are basically irrefutable, and we haven’t even begun to consider the issue of inalienable rights, freedoms, or the question of an individual’s right/responsibility to choose their medicine in accordance with the basic tenets of Health and Responsibility. One might ask how anyone pushing for mandatory vaccines can justify forcing those who don’t want the vaccine, on the basis they might infect vaccinated individuals! If the latter were vaccinated, why are they suddenly at risk?
How does the government get around the negatives of a mandated smallpox vaccination? Simply by the use of fear. For example, according to Peter Jahrling, principle scientific advisor to the United States Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID), “I don’t think there is any higher biological threat to this nation than smallpox.” This statement may actually be true, but it does not say that vaccinations -- mandated or otherwise -- will do anything but make the drug companies richer. Smallpox is, admittedly, a deadly disease, and a potentially extremely potent weapon of war. The relevant question yet to be answered is the validity of the mandated vaccination programs.
At the heart of the vaccine issue, however, is the question of whether or not any vaccine is beneficial! Can we trust anything the pharmaceutical companies, the medical Cartels, the government co-conspirators, or anyone else who advocates the use of vaccines? When there are apparent connections between Vaccines and Aids to the degree the vaccines themselves may have been responsible for initiating the AIDS pan-epidemic, one must stop and question authority like it’s never been questioned before!
There is, in fact, a significant Smallpox Vaccine Resistance movement which is growing faster than some strains of the virus. It’s not like the resistance does not have adequate, rational arguments! When one considers the flaws in Vaccine Research and some of the Smallpox Vaccine Results, it’s a wonder that any vaccines are every approved, accepted, tolerated, or given any more credence than the worst snake oil prescriptions.
One part of the so-called resistance movement -- resistance to vaccination as opposed to reduced resistance because of the vaccine -- is that one website is devoting itself to the issue. <http://www.vaccinationdebate.com> has provided the first of a very long list of points to be considered with respect to vaccines. The site also include graphs which show even more clearly the truth of the matter.

Historical Facts Exposing the Dangers and Ineffectiveness of Vaccines
· In 1871-2, England, with 98% of the population aged between 2 and 50 vaccinated against smallpox, it experienced its worst ever smallpox outbreak with 45,000 deaths. During the same period in Germany, with a vaccination rate of 96%, there were over 125,000 deaths from smallpox. [The Hadwen Documents]

· The February 1981 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association found that 90% of obstetricians and 66% of pediatricians refused to take the rubella vaccine.
· In the USA, the cost of a single DPT shot had risen from 11 cents in 1982 to $11.40 in 1987.
