US media blackout: French oppose vaccines

media controlBy Jon Rappoport

Get used to it. We live in an Orwellian landscape. When there is a really serious story that needs to be censored, it is. It gets little or no play. It’s buried.

And vaccines is one of those stories.

Here, from, is a shocker: “The French National Debate on Vaccines,” by Marco Caceres, August 19:

Between 2005 and 2010, the proportion of French people in favour or very in favour of vaccination dropped from 90% to 60% (2013 INPES Peretti-Watel health barometer). The percentage of French people between the ages of 18 and 75 who are anti-vaccination increased from 8.5% in 2005 to 38.2% in 2010. In 2005, 58% of doctors questioned the usefulness of vaccines administered to children while 31% of doctors were expressing doubts about vaccine safety. These figures must surely have increased since then.

France has punched a gaping hole in the fake consensus about vaccines.

In the US and other countries, people are taught there is an overwhelming positive attitude about vaccines. Allowing this story about France to leak and bleed into major media would refute that lie in a second.

Not only is consensus built through relentless propaganda, but when the consensus doesn’t exist because the propaganda fails, that fact is blacked out.

To put it another way, major media exist to invent consensus, and when they can’t, they hide the fact.

American medical reporters for mainstream outlets are among the worst journalists in the world. Over the years, I’ve spoken to some of them. They try to radiate scientific authority, but behind that front they’re a) brainwashed morons or b) sold-out pharmaceutical shills.

The shills hype medical drugs, vaccines, and just-over-the horizon research breakthroughs with the phony conviction of late-night infomercial spokespeople.

One reason a high percentage of the French oppose vaccines is: out in the countryside, they still know what good clean food is. Based on several conversations I’ve had with people who live there, the fresh local produce makes American food, by comparison, taste like cardboard. The French understand that real nutrition is a key to preserving health.

That’s why pharmaceutical giants are rooting hard for GMOs and pesticides, and are, in some cases, producing them. The more GMOs and chemical poisons on the land, the lower the level of general health, and the easier it is to peddle vaccines and drugs as a necessary answer.

That’s how the game is played.

  1. it is just awful what the government is doing to the very people who pay their wages and make them rich beyond belief

  2. Excellent review! An accurate poll of Americans would probably display similar percentages, with an increasing trend in opposition to “vaccination”. Americans are aware of Dr. Hilleman´s “confession.”

    Governor Brown of California recently displayed “bought-off-behavior” by signing the mandatory vaccination edict in California. With all the naturalists in California, Brown could not possibly be so ignorant as to invalidate “individual consent” for medical treatment, which points to other motives.
    Injecting diseased animal tissue and heavy metals into a live human body inflicts illness, not “vaccination.”
    Injecting an infant with such trash is CRIMINAL, medical personnel who do it are violating the Hippocratic oath, and should be charged with attempted manslaughter.

      They replaced Simian 40 Monkey Virus with something else now to cause cancer.

    • Who cares what Americans “think” in a poll? It means nothing. Before vaccines there were millions of deaths from diseases that you no longer have to worry about – BECAUSE OF VACCINES. Spreading this anti vaxxer nonsense is ignorant, superstitious, anti science, anti humanity, and dangerous. Before vaccines, millions regularly used to die from outbreaks. Smallpox is extinct because of vaccinations. Polio would be extinct from Earth if not for some superstitious, backward, suspicious, irresponsible idiots in a village in Africa and a few other isolated places. Allowing them to not be vaccinated endangers the entire World. That is the logic for mandatory vaccination – the safety and health of all, not evidence of “bought-off-behavior” I suppose you would allow Typhoid Mary to be your cook?

      • TARDISOFGALLIFREY | August 25, 2015 at 10:34 am | Reply

        If YOU are vaccinated, you are “Immune” and can’t possibly catch a disease from any unvaccinated…that is logic.

        • I care about other people besides myself – like innocent children whose parents are gullible to fall for this BS. I don’t want them to be sick, do you? Or do you not care about them? Or are you so selfish you cannot think about future generations who may suffer from your mistakes? What if a disease could be eliminated from the face of the Earth and the only thing keeping that from happening is a handful of anti vaxxers? Is that their right to pass this deadly disease onto our grandchildren. I hate is only toward those who would endanger millions through their selfishness and ignorance.

      • Your standard propaganda does not stand up to either valid experimentation or accurate review of health statistics based on “vaccination.”
        There is no scientific support for mandatory vaccination or vaccination of any type.

        The basis of “vaccination” is founded on suppositions such as yours, which is why MDs who honor the Hippocratic Oath call it “Voodoo Vaccination.”

        • You need only look at the history of millions of deaths pre vaccination and the near elimination of many diseases after vaccines. This is evidence, Polio went from tens of thousands of cases every year to ZERO in the US and ZERO in every nation that uses vaccines. Diphtheria, tens of thousands to nearly extinct. Smallpox – EXTINCT! More people died of the flu in 1918 than in WWI – but you would have us go back to those times when millions dies because you have bought into a nutjob conspiracy.

          • Your propaganda is well represented by your inability to write a summary sentence. So it is with voodoo vaccination, also. Supposition: no facts.
            Your propaganda doesnt match the facts.

          • libertarian | August 25, 2015 at 1:35 pm |

            Is there even a coherent point here? I fail to see one. How do you explain the fact that those who get vaccinated do not get the disease? How do you explain the elimination of diseases coincident with the introduction of vaccines? How do you explain that outbreaks only occur where vaccinations are not given? How do you explain the elimination of Smallpox. How do you explain the many millions of lives saved since vaccines were introduced? How do you not understand that the body can develop antibodies to defend against a disease by introducing a dead virus. How can you explain the irresponsibility, superstition, credulousness, gullibility, and sheer stupidity of a group whose most prominent spokesperson is Jenny McCarthy?

          • Neither empirical nor statistical evaluation of “vaccination” and contagious illness supports your idea that, ” – – those who get vaccinated do not get the disease”.
            Nor is your concept accurate, that “the many millions of lives saved since vaccines were introduced?” “Saved” is the wrong word, and associating the concept with voodoo vaccination reflects your brain-washed prejudice.

          • libertarian | August 25, 2015 at 2:41 pm |

            You have said nothing to refute anything I have asserted and have added nothing of substance. You are obviously too infatuated with your conspiracy to look at it objectively to see how absolutely absurd it is. Here’s a timeline to simplify it for you. 1. Millions die from influenza, polio, smallpox, measles, diphtheria and others. 2. Vaccines are introduced. 3. Rates of disease plummet and some diseases that have plagued humans for centuries are extinct. Areas without vaccinations continue to have outbreaks. You claim this is all some sort of coincidence?

          • Your knowledge of the scientific review of the fraud of Edward Jenner and voodoo vaccination is weak. Your accommodation to voodoo vaccination propaganda and its repetition is strong.
            I have no more time for your distracting, pernicious propaganda.

          • This example was in an undergrad textbook of mine on statistical methods in research science illustrating classic fallacies in cause and effect assumptions.

            1.) Sales of ice cream increase in the summer. 2.) Suicide rates increase in the summer. 3.) Therefore, ice cream consumption must drive some people to suicide.

          • libertarian | August 26, 2015 at 6:32 pm |

            That is plainly ridiculous. Ice cream and suicide? Right or wrong , vaccines are supposed to provide immunity to the disease. Clearly they have more than a connection than suicide and ice cream. You were beginning to get my attention with well reasoned arguments – you are back to square one with me after this example.

          • It’s a simple example from a textbook illustrating correlation does not equal causation. What could be missing here?

            Infection disease contraction and fatality rates drop precipitously with improved sanitation and nutrition. At the tail end of this drop, widespread vaccine use is introduced. Vaccines are then erroneously credited with being the primary intervention to many common infectious diseases.

          • libertarian | August 26, 2015 at 9:52 pm |

            It is perhaps possible that it is all a coincidence even though the very purpose of vaccines is to eradicate these very diseases. This is far different than your inapt example where one is completely unrelated to the other. A better example would be that suicides went up during the Great Depression. Did the economic stress cause the increase in suicides? Could be from another unrelated cause? It is possible, but unlikely that there is no connection.

          • As I’ve already stated, vaccines can in fact spread the disease. Outbreaks also occur in heavily vaccinated communities. You seem averse to responding to my points with evidence. Why is that?

          • libertarian | August 27, 2015 at 6:32 am |

            Show me evidence of that – I can’t show evidence of a negative. Show me where that has happened

          • Trying to turn the tables and still avoiding my main thread of questions, huh? Nice try Mr. Lib. 🙂


            1. Vaccines can and do cause permanent damage for a portion of the population.
            2. Quite often the vaccines cause the very diseases they are meant to prevent.
            3. Vaccines go through a shedding period where the recently vaccinated person can infect others.
            4. Vaccine induced herd immunity is a myth.
            and I’m adding a new one I forgot…
            5. Outbreaks happen in heavily vaccinated communities

            Start with point 1 and refute it with evidence please.

          • libertarian | August 27, 2015 at 8:12 am |

            I already answered all of these – why don’t you take a turn and provide evidence for these assertions.

          • Can you please copy/paste your answers? I don’t want to paraphrase. I also asked for them one at a time to avoid tangents.

          • To recap: In the west, fatalities from infectious diseases plummeted in sync with improved sanitation and nutrition BEFORE the widespread use of vaccinations. That should make you stop and think that, epidemiologically speaking, contraction rates and response are closely tied to cellular immunity, not merely humoral immunity (antibodies).

          • libertarian | August 26, 2015 at 10:13 pm |

            I don’t need a recap. I have already gave an example in CIS, Canada, and CIS where outbreaks occurred in developed nations where vaccinations were halted. You have utterly failed to explain this.

          • I replied to explain the effect of confounding variables. Which you don’t understand. It’s as though I am trying to explain calculus to a two year old toddler.

          • libertarian | August 27, 2015 at 8:50 am |

            OK Mr. “I don’t like ad hominem attacks.” Nearly every real, actual, educated, scientist and doctor agrees with me – some a lot more educated than you I suspect. Are they all “toddlers” trying to learn calculus as well?

          • They have been indoctrinated just as Humphries and I were indoctrinated. Far too busy trying to memorize massive amounts of handed down information. It takes a brave person to buck the system and one willing to invest a lot of time doing independent research. Look how long the conventional cholesterol-heart disease myth has persisted despite available hard evidence to the contrary going back 20 years or more. Most researchers and clinicians barely have time to keep up with their own field making us all very compartmentalized. You didn’t understand the confounding variable point, that’s obvious, and that kind of stubborn resistance to learning makes it nearly impossible for someone like me to help you achieve a paradigm shift onto a broader platform of knowledge.

          • If “those who get vaccinated do not get the disease”, then why mandate vaccines??

          • You still haven’t responded to the contradiction of why vaccines must be mandated, if, as you assert, “those who get vaccinated do not get the disease”.

            BTW, do you know that Humphries exposed the HIGHLY embarrassing situation of Offit (the Godfather of vaccines paid handsomely Big Pharma) posting on his website that human cells normally use aluminum as part of their cellular function? Scientific experts on aluminum toxicity (and heavy metal toxicity in general) had to be rolling on the floor. I was shocked having some research background on common sources of ultra low level heavy metal toxicity in the promotion of neurological diseases.

          • libertarian | August 26, 2015 at 3:56 pm |

            If you see what is happening in Africa (article I posted) the answer to mandatory should be obvious, polio could possibly be wiped from the face of the Earth so no one would ever suffer from it again – like smallpox. Why should a handful of Muslim fundamentalists leaders prevent their people from immunized and thus keeping this horrible disease around to endanger our children? It is no different than having a quarantine, or having pure food and drug regulations, or keeping Typhoid Mary from working in a kitchen.

          • Humphries meticulously makes the case that polio was an exaggeration and to some extent a fabrication as the diagnostic criteria were changed as the vaccine problems became suspected in the medical community. It was a moving goal post. Dissenting scientists and physicians were ignored or removed from government panels, exactly as was done with the FDA’s approval of GMOs. This is heavily documented.

          • Fatalities from infectious diseases plummeted in the west when sanitation and nutrition standards improved, around the turn of the last century, long before vaccinations were widely available. Polio, like smallpox, is primarily a scourge from poor sanitation and poor nutrition. The massive polio vaccine campaign in Africa has created a secondary problem of acute flaccid paralysis, just as crippling as polio, with an Indian medical journal estimating 47,500 cases in its 2011 report. What other unintended consequences might emerge in the years to come?

          • libertarian | August 26, 2015 at 6:34 pm |

            Why did diphtheria resurge after vaccination rates fell in Germany, Canada, and the CIS? Did their sanitation go down all of a sudden?

          • Confounding variables would have to be researched. For instance, vaccination rates might fall because economic conditions or demographics are changing and those variable would have a direct impact on disease contraction.

            You still aren’t addressing the problem of your logical fallacy as to why vaccines should be mandated if those who choose to get them are protected.

          • libertarian | August 26, 2015 at 9:42 pm |

            Question #2 I have posted this 3 times, but here you go again. L care about other people besides myself – like innocent children whose parents are gullible to fall for this stupidity. I don’t want them to be sick, do you? Or do you not care about them? Or are you so selfish you cannot think about future generations who may suffer from your mistakes? What if a disease could be eliminated from the face of the Earth and the only thing keeping that from happening is a handful of anti vaxxers? Is that their right to pass this deadly disease onto our grandchildren. I hate is only toward those who would endanger millions through their selfishness and ignorance.

          • Using an emotive terms such as “selfish” and “innocent” and then implying I don’t care about suffering, which is why I chose the my profession, is an absurd strategy. I am concerned about insidious long term effects that I don’t believe you are able to grasp.

          • libertarian | August 27, 2015 at 8:46 am |

            How about our generation totally eliminating a disease (like smallpox) so no one will ever have to get vaccinated for it or will ever have to worry about contracting it? Our gift to our grandchildren. The only thing standing in the way is the unvaccinated who host the virus and allow it to continue.

          • That’s a noble goal, however, IMO, it would come at too high of a price given the long term risks I have been able to discern from the scientific literature and my own background knowledge. Moreover, there are many molecular biologists who can foresee a dangerous “sitting ducks” situation of few people having natural immunity to pathogens we evolved with. These viruses are are commonly found in other mammals and viruses mutate faster than any other biological entity, due to their short life cycles and primitive error prone polymerases. There’s more to say here, of course, but beyond the scope of this medium of exchange.

          • libertarian | August 26, 2015 at 9:45 pm |

            Question #1 You say I never give any evidence and when I offer some you blow it off without even an attempt at explaining it. Very weak response and a total cop out. Show me evidence that provides a logical alternate explanation for the lack of vaccinartions followed by outbreaks in developed nations.

          • I never said you don’t provide evidence. You are confusing my commentary again with another poster. IMO, evidence works well in a research paper or presentation at a symposium when a group of highly educated (could be self educated) individuals on a topic have the background to critically dissect an issue. If you don’t understand the relevance of a point I make you can’t assume it is because my point was a “cop out”.

          • libertarian | August 27, 2015 at 8:42 am |

            Sorry, you are probably right, I am carrying this on with 3 other people, all at the same time.

          • ….and not answering any direct questions. Your strategy is pretty transparent I’m afraid. Seems that every time I ask you for specifics you go silent.

          • libertarian | August 27, 2015 at 8:17 pm |

            I have answered every question (multiple times) – but not one of mine has been answered

          • Sometime Disqus doesn’t send me an email and I can’t find your answer when going through that exact thread. Kindly copy/paste it.

          • libertarian | August 26, 2015 at 4:02 pm |

            I admit I know nothing about scandals of Big Pharma and even individual misconduct. If there are abuses then those committing them should be sued or in prison. Reform and regulate – I am all for it. My issue is people endangering others by anti vaxxers getting large numbers to forgo vaccinations. This will lead to a major outbreak and much needless suffering and death.

          • Paul Offit, the lead medical voice of mandatory vaccination, interjecting disinfo and censorship is not about a Pharma scandal, it’s about institutional tyranny. Deep capture, as understood in political science is much more than the action of rogue elements. Such a system is impossible to reform without a major consciousness shift.

            You still didn’t answer respond to the logical fallacy. BTW, more regulation is not a standard Libertarian response, it’s give the people all available information and then let them decide for themselves what risks they want to take.

          • Correlation is not causation. You need to read Humphries’ excellent deconstruction of polio.

            I never buy into “nutjob conspiracy”, I do my own extensive research, but I bet you buy into coincidence theories and would never admit to false flags, assassinations, MK Ultra, bankster control of the mainstream media, economy, and political arena.

Whoever is vaccinated is safe, right? By your twisted logic only people who are not vaccinated stand a chance of being exposed to dangerous viral spread diseases, right? You aren’t really so altruistic that you care that much about the rest of the world, are you? You don’t sound like it to me when you call everybody that doesn’t agree with you names just like a schoolyard brat.

          • As innocents, they also don’t deserve risk of the devastating effects of autism or death as the case of teenagers developing CNS inflammation leading to disability and death from Gardasil injections. We are born with natural rights to decide what cost vs. risk benefits we will take, that is at the core of personal autonomy in medical ethics – the heart and soul of classic liberalism. Eugenicists have also believed they could eliminate genetically linked diseases from the face of the earth “for the greater good”.

          • libertarian | August 26, 2015 at 9:39 pm |

          • libertarian | August 26, 2015 at 9:41 pm |

            There is no scientific link to autism, period. Of all the cases paid out by this government agency for side effects due to vaccination, they are less than in one in a million. Pick any disease and the consequences are far more severe.

          • libertarian | August 27, 2015 at 8:01 am |

          • Oh, its plenty to prove my point. Again, put a real number on it along with a total payout.

          • You have no idea how safe the vaccines are or are not. You only know the received wisdom from the Establishment and Big Pharma, which controls the FDA. This same FDA that whisteblower Thompson has shown hid data showing an increased risk in autism from vaccinations.

            The question responsible parents should ask is “What is the greatest danger.” Disease is FAR more likely to cause harm than any vaccine.

          • Prove it.

          • libertarian | August 27, 2015 at 8:11 am |

            I have provided evidence that there is little danger from vaccines and that these diseases used to kill millions. If you don’t believe that the vaccines had anything to do with the eradication of the diseases in spite of overwhelming evidence, then I don’t know if anything would satisfy you need for evidence. Like all who believe in a conspiracy, there is no evidence that could be provided to alter their opinion. “All data is faked to further the conspiracy.” Occam’s Razor applies here, I have a simple and straightforward explanation as to how and why these diseases were eradicated by vaccines and why places that don’t have vaccines still have outbreaks. Your explanation needs vast conspiracy, weak explanations of improved conditions being the “real” cause of the drop off (in spite of counter examples never explained by you) . When you have to go to such extreme lengths to keep you narrative alive – it is probably wrong.

          • Is this your proof?

        Many doctors refuse to vaccinate their own kids!

        • Many? Do you have any proof. I looked up a Swiss survey and found that ” 5 percent of nonpediatricians would not use the Hib vaccine for their own child. Their reasons for declining the use of Hib for their own children included a lack of concern about the disease.” So they selfishly endanger others because the risk is low because most everyone is immunized. Pediatricians vaccinated at much higher rates than non pediatricians.

            If vaccines are safe and effective, why has VICP paid out over 18 billion in damages related to vaccinations? Also, a similar program in The UK has done the same to the vax injured.

            “No medical intervention is completely risk free. Vaccines, though they are designed to protect from disease, can cause side effects that range from mild to serious. The most common side effects from vaccination are soreness, swelling, or redness at the injection site. Some vaccines are associated with fever, rash, and achiness. Serious side effects from vaccination are rare, but may include life-threatening allergic reaction, seizure, and even death.

            When vaccines first began to be widely used, people who experienced serious side effects from vaccination had little recourse to compensation from manufacturers, physicians, or the government. This was particularly a problem when vaccine production techniques were in their infancy and contamination of vaccines occasionally occurred during or after manufacture. Since the passage in 1902 of the U.S. Biologics Control Act, which initiated the regulation of vaccines, such problems with negligence in manufacture have declined greatly.

            As product liability law evolved during the 20thcentury, it eventually provided an avenue for compensation for individuals harmed by vaccines: they could sue a manufacturer for harm caused by an improperly made vaccine, or they could sue a physician for administering a vaccine when it was contraindicated. In the United States, the civil court system applies the principles of tort law to these suits.

            This rest of this article addresses programs that compensate individuals for adverse clinical events that are known to be caused by properly manufactured vaccines. Because governments have an interest in maintaining public health by means of vaccination, many, including the U.S. government, have developed no-fault systems for compensating people who have been adversely affected by certain vaccines. These people, to some degree, have assumed the risk of adverse event on behalf of the society in which they live. Therefore, many governments have adopted the position that it is fair and reasonable to compensate those who are harmed by properly manufactured vaccines.”

            on in one million – yet no word from you about what would have been the suffering if no vaccines were given. “From 2006 to 2014, over 2.5 billion doses of covered vaccines were distributed in the U.S. according to the CDC. 3,169 claims were adjudicated by the Court for claims filed in this time period and of those 1,939 were compensated. This means for every 1 million doses of vaccine that were distributed, 1 individual was compensated.

            Since 1988, over 16,113 claims have been filed with the VICP. Over that 27 year time period, 14,117 claims have been adjudicated, with 4,205 of these determined to be compensable, while 9,912 were dismissed. Total compensation paid over the life of the program is approximately $3.2 billion.”

          • TARDISOFGALLIFREY | August 25, 2015 at 3:44 pm |

            Pardon me, for some reason 18 billion came to mind. You neglect to mention most diseases were already on the decline before vaccinations for the were created. Also, most vaccines today are for common illnesses that go away all by themselves. Such as the dreaded Measles, it’s common childhood illness that goes away in about a month. They used to even have Measles Parties for kids to expose them so natural immunity would give lifelong immunity.

          • How do they selfishly endanger others, if, as you assert elsewhere on this thread, “those who get vaccinated do not get the disease”?

          • libertarian | August 26, 2015 at 6:42 pm |

            Duh, they endanger others who are not vaccinated, future generations (for whom the disease could be extinct if not for the anti vaxxers), their families (who they may provide for or who may care about them), taxpayers who will bear the burden of dealing with an epidemic, overburdened hospitals who may not be able to provide care for regular patient in the face of an epidemic, first responders who will be overburdened by a breakout and the time and effort to deal with it.

          • That doesn’t make sense because everyone who ascribes to your reasoning will have protected themselves. Next you will have the Diet Nazis telling people what to eat so taxpayers won’t have to bear the burden of health care costs. Take your strategy of the end justifies the means to its logical conclusion. Libertarian ideology is contrary to forcing one’s choices on another, that would be neoliberal and neoconservative, which aren’t liberal or conservative just fronts for globalism and technocracy.

          • libertarian | August 26, 2015 at 10:01 pm |

            I am not taking it to its logical conclusion. This is a fallacious argument called the slippery slope. Just because I advocate protecting society from the time bomb danger of infections disease does not mean I want to ban McDonalds, smoking, cars, drinking, and driving motorcycles. Saving the taxpayer from cost was only one of MANY reasons (and the least important) I gave for having mandatory vaccinations.

          • The bottom line is freedom to choose what to put into our bodies must be absolute in free society. It’s our natural right.

          • You didn’t give important points their due consideration. The main ones being 1.) Grave concerns over known and suspected risks that haven’t been allowed an opportunity for a full vetting owing to a captured system, thus no true informed consent possible and 2). Recognition that mortality rates for infectious diseases plummeted BEFORE the widespread introduction of vaccinations with death rates already plunging >95-99% when vaccinations were introduced for measles, whooping cough, etc., hence, immunity is a more complex system than most realize

            As to the first point – parents are deciding for their children, it is not a “free choice.” Can society have a quarantine? Can society protect itself from public health threats? What is a terrorist infected himself with smallpox and started flying around the the country? Typhoid Mary, can we make her not work? As I have stated before – libertarian philosophy allows freedom for the individual; UNLESS he is endangering others or interfering with the rights of others. What if an unvaccinated child (by parents choice) died of diphtheria? Didn’t the parents violate that child’s rights?

      • Group think isn’t a function of being factually informed. Indoctrination is the word.

          • Of course, I understand why you find the purported history of vaccines to appear “irrefutably compelling” because as a student studying immunology it seemed to me to be a reasonable and even cool explanation of mankind’s triumph over disease. The more you dive into the world of scientific research, the more you understand how shades of gray can take on mythic proportions of being the big truth and why that happens when there are very smart people driving seductive narratives typically incentivized by profit, ego, and larger Establishment agendas.

  6. A bunch of conspiracy nuts in France “punch a hole in the vaccine consensus.” Well they didn’t dent reality. My Great Grandfather was raised on a farm in Wisconsin (no GMOs or factory farming). In 1881, his older brother went off to school in Minneapolis and contracted diphtheria and died. His belongings were packed in a trunk and returned to the family where the 4 youngest brothers and sisters all were infected and also died. 5 of a family of 8 were dead within 3 months of each other. The more people who buy this BS, the greater the possibility of a pandemic. The danger is small as long as the anti-vaccers are a limited to some isolated cranks – but if this ever catches on in any serious way the consequences will be most grave. This movement is dangerous and ill-informed.

    • Sorry, but you’re in the wrong place. Activist Post is a place for critical thinkers. Its a bit absurd that you use Diphtheria as an example. That disease is borne out of unsanitary conditions. If you drink the equivalent of toilet water on a daily basis, no vaccine in the world can help.

      • That’s why there was a major diphtheria outbreak in The CIS, Canada and Germany when the vaccination rates went down in the 1990s. Maybe you should examine your own critical thinking skills before you question others. The outbreaks are tied to places with low vaccination rates. Unsanitary conditions contribute to the speed of the spread, yes. But those who are vaccinated do not get the disease, period.

In the 1920s, there were between 100,000 and 200,000 cases of diphtheria each year with 13,000–15,000 deaths. Because of widespread immunization and better living conditions, diphtheria is now rare in the United States.•Vaccination is the most effective step you can take to be protected from this serious disease.

      As a libertarian you can take all the vaccines you want, as long as you don’t push them on others…that’s the libertarian thing to do!

      • I agree that mandatory vaccination is not normal libertarian position. But to not get vaccinated is endangering the lives of others and is therefore a legitimate use of government power.

    • How is it that when vaccine critics cite individual examples of morbidity and mortality directly caused by vaccinations, the pro-vaccine crowd says these are merely anecdotal and rare cases of a fulminant autoimmune reaction but when a pro-vaxxer cites his or her own anecdotal case they believe they have a deep enough understanding of the science to say vaccination critics are full of BS?

      Epidemiology, immunology, and the general field of medical science cannot be understood with such tiny lenses.

      • If there are some issues about a handful of cases, I am fine with experts dealing with the repercussions of that. I am concerned about the millions at risk if people foolishly believe that vaccines are not generally safe and effective. If this view prevails, the result will be thousands of deaths and the handful of cases will be forgotten and the people will cry out”why did all these people have to die?” This is like climate change denial – the price of anti science stupidity will be paid by future generations.

        • I’m sorry you missed my point that your anecdotal story and ones I can provide are in no way to be taken as clear scientific evidence of cause and effect. I have invested much time researching both sides and am fortunate to have the advantage of being a medical scientist, who, like Humphries, did not question what was handed down to me until I began observing major errors in medical paradigms. I also know well the history of medical science and there are consistent patterns of cognitive dissonance and push back when the dominant paradigm is correctly challenged.

          Climate change is also a complex subject that has been grossly oversimplified as a public debate. Any “science” that rejects open discussion and serious questions about methods for data collection, analysis, and modeling bias is not true science. Falsifiability is antithetical to a dogmatic approach. Ultimately, the greatest need is for absolute transparency and you don’t understand why that is not achieved because your mind is handcuffed to a knee jerk rejection of the concept of powerful people collaborating to serve their own needs at the expense of others.

          • libertarian | August 26, 2015 at 3:13 pm |

            You may be surprised to learn that I agree with your view of science and also the complexity of Climate Change. It bugs me to no end when these Republicans say “I am no scientist but…” The opponents to doing something about Climate Change fund scientists who are trying to prove there is no danger and to obfuscate the issue instead of practicing true science. On the other hand, I have seen the same sort of sloppy science all over this page – cherry picked misleading stats, bits of interviews taken out of context, wild conspiracy theories that are all over the map, even a definitive statement that there “is no such thing as a communicable disease.” This idea has been allowed to stand by everyone posting here – except me. Excuse me if I am not impressed by the scientific tenor of this site when taken as a whole. You appear to be the exception, not the rule.

        • Sorry you missed my point that the long term efficacy and safety of all vaccines cannot possibly be known from anecdotal instances, mine or yours. It takes a great deal of intense research to fully understand such things. A lot of people would like to think they should be the arbitrars of what is foolish and what isn’t then use force to impose their views. That is a far cry from classic liberalism (libertarian-minded views), rather, it is Technocracy.

  7. I had a friend from France that was sending constant tweets condemning anyone that questioned vaccines. I wonder if he’s eating his words now.

    If they told you informed consent what’s in vaccines, you’d run out screaming!

    • I have always signed an informed consent form when I get a vaccination.

      • No doctors give this unless asked. Some doctors even get indignant when asked for it. Please try to steer clear of anecdotes unless you have some way of proving it.

        • I have signed them for my son as well. Personal experience is not allowed? O.K.

          • I say that personal experience is not valid because I could tell you that my youngest son suffered neurological damage as a result of his MMR shot but it would be called anecdotal by pro-vaxxers.

          • libertarian | August 25, 2015 at 2:58 pm |

            I am truly sorry to hear about your son, but how can you conclusively know that the cause was from the shot? Most of the “evidence” I have seen for ill effects from vaccines is supplied by parents who self report the problem. With millions vaccinated every year, if a child has a problem but it may have nothing to do with the vaccination at all. I have seen no scientific proof of a link to these problems and these side effects. I fully understand the desire of parents to assign blame, but that does not prove a connection.

          • Let us consolidate these conversations so that we don’t fly off on tangents. Do you have any comments regarding my main thread? Particularly the history of the anti-vaxx movement?

          • libertarian | August 25, 2015 at 5:16 pm |

            If you are for improving the safety and ingredients of vaccines you would get no objection from me. I have read that the quality control of vaccines has much improved over time, just as have peanut butter and hot dogs. My only argument is with those who don’t believe vaccines are useful in protecting public health. They imagine some magical force halted these scourges at the same time that vaccines were introduced – an amazing coincidence! They see conspiracy everywhere and no evidence can sway their paranoia. They think the government is deliberately causing cancer – but never say why. They discredit reasonable dissent by making outrageous claims against the government and corporations. The funny thing is that I am more suspicious of corporations than anyone – yet the claims here are not plausible and are not supported by evidence.. One in a million has some side effects? This is a small cost considering the millions who were dying from these diseases prior to vaccination. If the anti vaxxers were around 60 years ago, we would still have people dying of smallpox.

          • You need to read Dr. Suzanne Humphries book Dissolving Illusions for clear perspective on smallpox and the vaccine paradigm in general. The most astute researchers and clinicians critical of vaccination protocols FULLY acknowledge the pros and cons of vaccinations. The debate is far more nuanced than you allude to and starts with a thorough understanding of cellular vs. humoral immunity. Cumulative burden of heavy metals, cytokine storms, assaults from adjuvants, viral contamination, and other known problems are medical fact, not speculation.

          • Rachel Flanagan | August 26, 2015 at 3:01 pm |

            Dr. Suzanne Humphries, a doctor with a conscience, who practices no harm.
            Super savvy doctor and lady.

          • It seems that you’re pretty new to this debate. Vaccines are not “safe and effective” as the MSM seems to keep repeating. Off the top of my head I can think of 4 reasons:

            1. Vaccines can and do cause permanent damage for a portion of the population. The “one in a million” argument is so nebulous and never quantified.
            2. Quite often the vaccines cause the very diseases they are meant to prevent.
            3. Vaccines go through a shedding period where the recently vaccinated person can infect others.
            4. Vaccine induced herd immunity is a myth.

            Start with point 1 and refute it with evidence please.

            Rather than vilify people that question/refuse vaccines, does’t it make more sense to simply ask the question “Why”?

            You seem to be laser focused on Diphtheria. Very well. RE: “Because of widespread immunization and better living conditions, diphtheria is now rare in the United States….”

            Can you define “better living conditions”? Also, can you point to evidence that suggest vaccinations played a major role in the decline of cases?

          • libertarian | August 25, 2015 at 8:21 pm |

            “Outbreaks, though very rare, still occur worldwide, including in developed nations, such as Germany among non-vaccinated children, and Canada. After the breakup of the former Soviet Union in the early 1990s, vaccination rates in its constituent countries fell so low that there was an explosion of diphtheria cases. In 1991, there were 2,000 cases of diphtheria in the USSR. By 1998, according to Red Cross estimates, there were as many as 200,000 cases in the Commonwealth of Independent States, with 5,000 deaths.” The common theme is the lack of vaccinations, not the living conditions.

          • libertarian | August 25, 2015 at 8:25 pm |

            Vaccines cannot cause the disease unless they are “live viruses” and even then it is rare. Dead viruses cannot spread and cannot infect others. as for 4. If the virus has nowhere to go, it will die off and the epidemic is over. So if everyone has immunity, the virus is doomed.

          • Let us deal with these points one by one, shall we?

            “Start with point 1 and refute it with evidence please.”

          • Vaccines have caused severe autoimmune reactions leading to permanent disability and in some cases death. In the US, more than 100 deaths have been formally attributed to Gardasil, most were rapid onset in otherwise healthy young patients. Vaccines have been found to be contaminated with viruses, as was the polio vaccine, thought to be the cause of tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands cases of lymphoma. The medical journal Lancet published a paper in 2002 estimating nearly half of the 55,000 cases of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma diagnosed each year are a consequence of the polio vaccine contaminated with the cancer inducing SV40 virus. Note that in these cases, the way SV40 disrupts cellular function, it takes many years for cancer to develop. This is an example of an insidious problem that takes a tremendous amount of research and good insight to get to the bottom of, if ever.

            When a child gets a vaccine and screams for 8 hours straight, and begins slamming their head against the wall due to the pain and trauma their brains are suffering, and loses all eye contact and verbal speech.

          • libertarian | August 27, 2015 at 8:23 pm |

            Why are you my P.C. police and no one else’s? That is the very essence of hypocrisy.

  11. Thank you for the references. From what I can see, Humphries is taking the battle to the medical establishment’s own turf by finding hard evidence that contradicts the deeply entrenched myths of vaccination being the primary or substantial cause of disease eradication. Know the infowar MUST be fought on several fronts. I am open minded but I also know what medical science has clearly demonstrated. Oftentimes the problem is interpretation.

    • CMRedwood, she is good is Dr Suzanne Humphries, but she now needs to move on and drop the infectious model. Only then will she understand the health disease process. To sit on a fence, a balancing act, entrenched in the infectious myth (infectious polio is one example) will get her nowhere. But as I say, those who hold onto the infectious myth will simply not see it or want to see it as they are so focussed to the point of obsession on the idea that we ‘catch’ disease, which is absurd. Its really about the conditioning of the mind through cultural norms and psychological and sociological issues. When we are raised in a culture that paints motor cars red, then we became acclimatized to that and so we then paint motor cars red. We follow like lost sheep, we fit into place. To use another colour is a taboo, we get punished. Most people are like that, our friend ‘libertarian’ is like that. We merely repeat the mantra endlessly, we are really defending our own condition regardless that we make no sense. This means we are not using our heads, we are on auto-pilot, programed to self destruct. Sadly, the airplane will eventually crash. Vaccine damage airplanes, its popular, but the plane will eventually crash. John Wantling, Rochdale

  12. Wikipedia is hardly a scholarly source. Or do you know what a scholarly or verifiable source is? Do you even know what the definition of libertarian is? Perhaps you could start your journey of discovery by looking up the definition of libertarian in a good dictionary, you know, one of those that doesn’t have pictures?

    • Libertarianism is the view that each person has the right to live his life in any way he chooses so long as he respects the equal rights of others. By avoiding vaccinations you endanger all humankind.

      • How do you know humankind has not evolved to co-exist with bacteria and viruses in a balancing act? Even common bacteria and viruses can become dangerous when our bodies are weak. Viruses mutate quickly and cross species, natural immunity would protect us far better from the introduction of new viruses than relatively weak and one-dimensional humoral immunity which requires constant boosters to keep antibody titers up, not so with natural immunity, it is lifelong.

        • Because natural immunity caused millions of deaths. You might as well say we shouldn’t practice medicine because people with bad hearts or children with an ear infection should die so as not to pass on their defective genes.

          • libertarian | August 27, 2015 at 6:34 am |

            Where did I present a straw man argument?

          • You clearly don’t have an education in the biological sciences, much less medical, thus you have no idea what I’m talking about. Here’s a perfect analogy:

            For a decade or more, oxidative (free radical) damage to cells was thought to be the source of diseases and aging, a universal negative with the exception of free radicals such a hydrogen peroxide being used by macrophages to kill invaders. In the last ten years this paradigm has matured and evolved into a far more sophisticated nuanced understanding that we very much need oxidative stress to upregulate powerful antioxidants proteins in our cells.

            You are arguing nonsense, a one-dimensional paper tiger argument. It’s only recently medical science has been on a steep learning curve on how our commensals work with our bodies like a symphony.

          • Natural immunity caused millions of deaths? It’s prevented a quadtrillion or more infections from taking hold and killed countless cancer cells. Natural immunity has worked to shape our species. Just as exposure to allergens is necessary at a young age to train our immune system to tolerate our normal environment, exposure to bacteria and viruses shapes the developing immune system into a deft army. Again, since you can’t grasp the difference between humoral and cellular immunity, you are trying to argue something you don’t understand – at all.

          • libertarian | August 27, 2015 at 8:28 am |

            Of course natural immunity has prevented virtually every person from dying. That is how vaccines work – using dead virus to allow the body to develop a natural immunity. But natural immunity (before vaccines) allowed millions to die from diseases that are not preventable by using vaccines.

          • Vaccines only stimulates the humoral system, whereas natural immunity from natural viral contraction engages both humoral and cellular immunity creating a permanent memory to a vast array of epitopes. Humoral (vaccine) immunity is not, by definition, natural immunity. Why do you think boosters are needed? There is a difference.

          • libertarian | August 27, 2015 at 8:19 pm |

            Fine. Do you have a point?

  13. 122 cases in 2012 of a typically self limiting and mild infection does not make for a serious health problem by any stretch. If the same modus operandi is being used to reclassify the diagnostic criteria as was done in the big US polio campaigns decades ago, then we are flying blind here, again. Moreover, if immunity comes from vaccinations, rather than natural exposure, it is not lasting or particularly robust. Thus if a mutated form of the virus resurfaces there will be no longer any humans with natural immunity and the results could be easily be catastrophic. This issue is more complex than you realize.

    • It is self limiting BECAUSE most are vaccinated. What if they weren’t?

      • TARDISOFGALLIFREY | August 26, 2015 at 10:16 pm | Reply

        You are so full of crap! What pharma company do you work for?

      • It’s self limiting in the unvaccinated. I bet you have no idea that standard practice when young children were diagnosed with polio infection was to bind their limbs into braces and tight splints which impeded development. The first physical therapist, a nurse who treated the self limiting and general weakness some young polio patients presented with, was tremendously successful in getting her patients full mobility again. She rejected the arbitrary practice of binding limbs and gave them targeted movement exercises instead.

        • The example was diphtheria, before vaccines tens of thousands died each year in the US alone. Doesn’t sound self limiting to me. Unless you feel these are “acceptable losses” to avoid vaccination,

          • The response I gave was to the CNN article you posted, that’s why I first remarked on the 122 cases in 2012 reported in the article. You are getting confused by all of the responses.

          • libertarian | August 26, 2015 at 10:58 pm |

            Probably – I’m back and forthing with three other people besides you. But I think I’m done soon. It is a waste of time it seems. No one will budge, none of you will question each other about anything in spite of some outrageous statements. This is the perfect example of the Internet where a group will find like minded people and will reinforce each other’s beliefs by not listening to dissenters (or ganging up on them) and sticking together no matter what.

          • Problem is you are not even libertarian-minded or well informed on deep state issues.

            You endlessly rationalize to support your own views. That’s antithetical to being open to new and larger paradigms. Again, you should read Dissolving Illusions and use that information to develop a more informed and nuanced perspective of infectious disease.

          • I’m sorry if you feel that you’re ganged up on in this forum. It was your decision to enter into a forum with people of critical thinking skills. You may call us names like “paranoid conspiracy nuts”, but at least have one thing in common: Our experiences and knowledge of the subject is consistent. In contrast, pro-vaxx fanatics seem to be all over the map with their beliefs and knowledge. I’ve been having this debate for nearly 10 years now, and in that time I’ve heard a broad array of arguments from you people:

            Pro-vaxxer fanatic #1 claims that vaccines are not drugs.
            Pro-vaxxer fanatic #2 admit that some vaccines carry more risks than others (which I agree with).
            Pro-vaxxer fanatic #3 lumps 3rd world countries into the disease fatality statistics.
            Pro-vaxxer fanatic #4 claims that absolutely NO Thimeresol.
            exists in ANY vaccines.
            Pro-vaxxer fanatic #5 claims that any/all children can take an unlimited amount of vaccines and suffer 0 adverse reactions.

            So you see, its very hard for anyone who thinks critically to take any of you guys seriously. I personally find it amusing when you come with your scientific claims. It would be great however if you guys could hold a town meeting to get on the same page with your beliefs.

          • libertarian | August 27, 2015 at 8:29 pm |

            I am not afraid of being ganged up on at all. My problem is that you never seem to criticize each other – even if you are in disagreement. Hardly a forum for improving understanding. When you say vaccine advocates are all over the place -I can say the same thing about all of you. You have very different opinions but you never discuss you conflicts. Enjoy your echo chamber.

          • ” This is the perfect example of the Internet where a group will find
            like minded people and will reinforce each other’s beliefs by not
            listening to dissenters (or ganging up on them) and sticking together no
            matter what….”

            Looks like you were playing the victim. I’m using your own words. Can you people ever get on the same page with basic facts?

      • BTW, you should know that many vaccine critics like Humphries have never rejected the practice of vaccination outright. They believe there is some evidence for limited and judicious use. Limited is the key term and fully informed consent. Since there have never been any studies done on the effects of aluminum in vaccines, for example, there can be no fully informed consent because the data is not there and TPTB have no interest in putting concerns to rest by doing thorough studies.

        • If you review all my post you will not find a single instance of me defending the government or big pharma, or for allowing impurities in vaccines. I have been accused of being a lackey, a tool and of working for big pharma. I fully support full disclosure, pure drugs, open looks at companies and the government. If you were fighting for that I would fully support you. My focus has remained with the effectiveness and utility of vaccines to prevent disease and the danger of the uninformed endangering others (and their own children) by believing they do not work and/or are far more dangerous than they in fact are. And that the disease is not dangerous.

          • TARDISOFGALLIFREY | August 26, 2015 at 11:03 pm |

            Good, then lead the charge against Big-Pharma to remove the cancerous crap!

          • That looks like the only common ground you will find here, is the absolute need for transparency so the public can make truly informed decisions. By public I don’t mean majority consensus, I mean individuals being able to make truly informed decisions about their health care options. We don’t have that, the process has been heavily skewed. This is where we don’t meet eye to eye and I know for a fact you don’t have a grasp of the level of corruption in health care and scientific research, or government for that matter.

          • libertarian | August 27, 2015 at 10:16 am |

            You know nothing about me “for a fact.” I am more suspicious of government and especially corporations than you know. You assume – because I don’t agree with you on this one topic – that I am some sort of gullible, complacent naive fool who believes everything I’m told. You are completely wrong about that and your statement that you know this for a fact demonstrated that you will assume facts with almost no evidence. Just like you have on the topic of vaccines.

  14. What’s the point, guilt by association? Personal philosophical exemptions should extend to anyone whether I agree with their logic or not. Besides, according to you, they can’t hurt the vaccinated. Wouldn’t that be a Darwinian survival of the fittest situation in your view? Human chorionic gonadotropin has been found in some foundation sponsored vaccine third world campaigns. Maybe the ones you are condemning for their ignorance are aware of something your aren’t.

    • Only Hitler and KKK are for survival of the fittest – I am for eliminating disease and suffering and certainly do not want innocent children to die because of their parent’s superstition or misinformed opinions.

      • You are mistaken, eugenicists are also of the same mindset and they have been very influential in engineering social policies in this country. It isn’t for you or anyone else to decide what acceptable risk is. That is totalitarian.

        SOTF is nature’s way. I had a terrible flu 20 years ago that lasted a month…have never had a flu since (natural immunity).

        • …or luck. You cannot have “natural immunity” to flu because there are many different strains each year. You are kidding yourself if you think you can’t get it – you can get it if you have the shot if you are exposed to a different strain.

          • TARDISOFGALLIFREY | August 26, 2015 at 11:09 pm |

            Let me ask you, as an infant I had every vaccination. So how come I still got every single damn illness that I was vaccinated against?

  15. Ok. it looks like I need to be pedantic in my request. Can you please just list the total number of deaths and injuries + total compensation paid out? No need for a breakdown by year of any kind. It is really that simple. I just need to make sure we’re on the same page when pointing to facts. No need to expand upon it.

    • Read the link – everything you could want to know is there, that why I provided the link.

      • How tedious this is, even when being pedantic. Once again, can you please just list the total number of deaths and injuries + total compensation paid out (from that link)? No need for a breakdown by year of any kind. It is really that simple. I just need to make sure we’re on the same page when pointing to facts. No need to expand upon it.

  16. The definition of “proof” is laying out facts, not recycled assertions.

    • Anyone who knows ANYTHING about science knows there is no such thing as proof. Just theories that work until they are improved on. I can’t believe you claim scientific expertise and do not know this.

      • You must be getting me confused with someone else. You’re over-complicating this and I never claimed to have scientific expertise. If I did, copy/paste my text. One only needs to use logic and have basic reading skills.

        • O.K. proof is not a scientific concept.

          • Neither is “one in a million”. Any reputable scientist would laugh you right out of the building.

          • libertarian | August 27, 2015 at 8:38 pm |

            READ the file. That is what it is, one in a million. Stop being so lazy. I read it, so can you – or just drop it. Talking to you is a colossal waste of time. I reanswer and you reask. Over and over.

          • Now now. Emotions are flaring and you’re violating another debate rule. I’m still waiting on you to answer a simple question. Is it such a chore?

  17. Thank you, Rachel, for finding and sharing these. Profound and heart wrenching.

  18. Many vaccines are Contaminated by mistake or on purpose. The manufacturers have all been fined billions for criminal frauds and are untrustworthy . Vaccine protection wanes in a few years to a decade even when they “work”. When you add in original antigenic sin and vaccine failures and shedding, we are setting ourselves up for huge problems. Immediately when they claim that the science is settled they are liars. The latest study indicates people who do not get mumps and measles have higher death rates from heart problems! A tremendous screw up as big or greater than SV40 . Vaccination for benign diseases should be stopped. At least France is reasonable.

  19. Sorry, the Baltimore Sun link didn’t work for me. Is this about Carson being chairman of Vaccinogen Inc? I can’t say I’m surprised, he appears to be a RINO or at the very least too clueless and self-absorbed to see the big picture. Nightmare is right, and fast! We’re spread too thin. We need to network now more than ever.

    • Wow. That link disappeared fast! Yes, he was on he board. Trump is just a show clown for now but his numbers will drop or he will simply drop out, leaving Carson in the lead. Please share this info. Thx.

  20. In truth, NOBODY apposes vaccines. What some of us appose is, the overgrown radical governments that have embraced technology and IDIOCRACY to advance the Globalist agenda! Have you ever asked yourself, why is it the RURAL people everywhere are the only ones that question things? It’s because we have been the least exposed to the Communist Propaganda machine of the 21st century! In USA it’s the Democrat Party, the “Rino” (Republican in name only) parties, and everywhere else, Labor, Congress, Communist, Socialist, etc. parties! WAKE UP IDIOTS.
