Neil Miller: Why people choose not to Vaccinate
Dachel Media Update: Autism Speaks Celebrates 10 Years of Creating Demand for Autism Speaks!

The first graph in this presentation is a great example of how "technically true but misleading" stats can be. The graph is apparently only for the USA, but nothing in the graph actually says that. Measles was still killing millions of people worldwide when the vaccine was first licensed. Once it came into greater use around the world, it declined rapidly, from around 3M/year down to around 50k/year.

Also, the title on the final spreadsheet doesn't necessarily match the data. It says "there is nothing unusual about the recent outbreaks" - the data does not support this conclusion. It doesn't support that there is something unusual either. It's not clear one way or another just from those numbers.

Absolutely amazing information especially right now!

I'm glad to see some great research come out about all this... I found some good info from Mark Grenon from the Church Genesis II:

1900 Deaths from measles were 13 per 100,000 (13:100,000)

1953 The Swedish conduct a study on the Pertussis vaccine. Anna L. Annell, a Swedish researcher, writes a major work on Pertussis which indicates that “pertussis vaccine may be associated with the most varying kinds of cerebral complications which may be cortical, subcortical, or peripheral.” Encephalitis after vaccination is known to produce the same range of disabilities and impairment. Annell also wrote, “during the past few decades certain of the epidemic children’s disease, measles in particular, have shown an increased tendency to attack the central nervous system. After the 1920's a large number of cases involving CNS damage were reported.

1960 General vaccination program for measles begins in the United States

1967 Many killed from vaccination. Measles vaccine is discontinued in the United States.

1970 U.S. Dept. of Health, Education, and Welfare (HEW) reports “as much as 26% of children receiving ruebella (German measles) vaccination in national testing programs developed arthralgia and arthritis. Many had to seek medical attention and some were hospitalized.”

1971 A study by Stella and Chess reveals that children with congenital ruebella (German measles) frequently display classic autistic features, including impaired ability to relate new stimuli to remembered experience.

1976 Dr. Robert Simpson of Rutgers University addresses science writers at a seminar of the American Cancer Society, pointing out, “…immunization programs against flu, measles, mumps, polio, etc. May actually be seeding humans with RNA to form latent proviruses in cells throughout the body. These latent proviruses could be molecules in search of diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, systemic lupus erythematosis, Parkinson’s disease, and perhaps cancer.”

1990 New England Journal of Medicine reports that giving vitamin A to children with measles reduces complications and death, but never fully implemented on any scale after test results.

1993 More than 25 percent of all measles cases are occurring in babies under a year old. CDC attributes this to growing number of mothers vaccinated between 1960 and 1980. When natural immunity is denied by vaccination, measles immunity cannot be passed on to babies..


@David M. Burd:

..."Perhaps Cynthia Leifer will read some of Dr. Miller, and maybe, just maybe, be open to reappraising her rigid stance."

Aah, you're far more charitable than I at the moment, David. I've spent a little over 20 plus years, now, hashing and rehashing the issues with vaccines, far and wide, and I'm just about at my tipping point with all of this, i.e., no more patience for those that are willfully ignorant.

I believe in forgiveness, really, but I have to admit that I am literally seeing spit nails whenever I read a comment by someone who either refuses to understand the complexities of the vaccine issue, OR they are willfully ignorant/stubborn, either because of an inherent character defect (sorry, has to be said), or because of ties to the drug industry.

It sickens me.

I realise I've not lost a child to vaccines, but we certainly came extremely close, at least according for our former pediatric group in Denver, Colorado.

We didn't lose our lovely son, however, BECAUSE the physicians in this particular pediatric group WERE COMPASSIONATE and genuinely cared for our baby boy when he was experiencing those horrible reactions.


Further, they owned up to not only his having the reactions he had, but they were forthright enough to explain to me just what had most likely happened to our son, in the way of brain damage (i.e., his learning disorder issues).

Unfortunately, this type reaction from any pediatric staff is woefully miniscule these days. More often than not, parents are browbeaten, threatened and/or coerced into vaccinating their children, in spite of their concerns. This sort of behavior on the part of pediatricians, who damned straight ought to know better, goes against their very creed, which is to FIRST DO NO HARM...TO ANYONE.

So this is why Dr. Miller's words had such a heartfelt twinge for me as I read his absolutely exquisite comments re compassion.

And wow! You two are former alumni! That's pretty awesome! Have to say...I'm impressed...with both of you.

I very much appreciate your kind words to me here at this forum, David. Some people have asked me why I spend so much time on an autism board when our son is not autistic.

My reply is because I consider myself a Mom, first, and a WARRIOR, second. I feel I am in a like-minded group of decent folks, who all have been traumatized by our medical system in this country. Some of us have gone thru far more ethan others, but we all have one thing in common:

We love our children...passionately, and we will do everything in our power to spread the word re what happened to our children.

You don't mess with a Momma Bear's cub...

Thanks for recommending Dr Donal Miller, Jr. writing on Compassion. His many other articles are also on LewRockwell website, and worth reading by all.

Incidentally, Donald Miller, Jr. and I were high school classmates, and he starred as fullback on our team topping the Regional Football rankings back many decades ago.

Perhaps Cynthia Leifer will read some of Dr. Miller, and maybe, just maybe, be open to reappraising her rigid stance.


@Cynthia Leifer (and all others who deny vaccine risks):


“Our sweet little fussy bear Matthew Gage Downing-Powers was born healthy on April 26, 2013. In the hospital, he was given the Hepatitis B vaccine after birth. That’s what they do here in the United States and what the CDC recommends newborns receive, following the current schedule. His reactions to the shot were deemed normal and I have older children that have been fully vaccinated, so I was aware of what to expect.

I took Matthew in for his 2 month well baby checkup on July 2, 2013. During this appointment, he was given 8 vaccines for DTaP (3 in 1), Polio, Hib, Hep B, Pneumococcal PCV and the oral Rotavirus vaccine. Then I was late getting him to his 4 month checkup. I brought him as soon as I was able.

On Monday October 7, 2013, when Matthew was 5 ½ month’s old, I brought him in for his 4 month delayed visit. The doctor said they could get him caught up on his shots. I thought ok, you can do that. Matthew received 8 vaccines, DTaP, Polio, Hib, Pneumococcal, Hep B and Hep A. These would be the last vaccines he would ever receive.

After the shots, he didn’t have a fever or a low grade one. We didn’t give him Tylenol. He was just grumpy and crying some. We checked him every hour. His temperature stayed normal but he wasn’t his happy go lucky self. All my kids got grumpy after their shots.

I didn’t call the doctor on Tuesday. I knew these were typical behaviors after the kids received the vaccines. He is my 4th son. We had our other 3 vaccinated and knew what to expect.

I thought I would give it another day to see if he was still grumpy but we didn’t get to the next day. Matthew was gone by then. He was found lifeless. He went to bed that Tuesday night and my husband found him Wednesday morning.

My husband Zack and I both performed CPR on our son and so did my dad and step mom. He had some light pinkish-brown tinged mucous coming from his nose and mouth. I wasn’t willing to believe he was gone. None of us were willing to give up on him..."

...Don’t disrespect parents like me, who have lost their child to vaccines. And don’t disrespect parents of living vaccine injured children. Our rights to choose these medical interventions need to be preserved. It is beyond disturbing that bought politicians think they can choose what gets injected into our children. They don’t care about your child’s health. Clearly many are dying and getting injured from these vaccines and they turn a blind eye. That should tell you something.

I miss my baby so much. A huge part of me was taken when he was. I cannot let this happen again. I cannot put my other children at risk of being vaccine injured any longer.

Matthew took one for the team and his life didn’t matter to those wanting to strip my rights to opt out of further vaccinating. Why does he not matter? Why do mild cases involving the measles get reported all over the news, but not babies dying after getting the MMR shot or other vaccinations? Why don’t the vaccine injured children matter?"

I know in my heart this would have happened to our son had we not quit vaccinating him at the age of six months. Prior to his six month check-up, his vaccine reactions were severe...extremely severe, but we kept vaccinating him (having been told it was just the Pertussis component that he was reacting to. It wasn't. He'd been reacting to each and every vaccine given to him; it was simply the Pertussis component which proved to be his toxic tipping point).


Article by Dr. Donald W. Miller re: COMPASSION:


..."Compassion embodies two cardinal virtues: natural justice and loving-kindness.

Schopenhauer writes:

Whoever is filled with compassion will assuredly injure no one, do harm to no one, encroach on no man’s rights; he will rather have regard for everyone, forgive everyone as far as he can, and all his actions will bear the stamp of justice and loving-kindness.

This impulse to act justly and to embrace other creatures with loving-kindness is heartfelt and entirely unselfish. Compassion moves a person to come to the aide of another creature, especially one who has experienced misfortune and is in distress, without any self-serving considerations at all. This feeling is directed not just to other human beings but to all living things. Compassion is unconditional love, in its broadest sense.

Schopenhauer’s philosophy is grounded in the view that this irrational force is a manifestation of the innermost reality of life. Compassion is not derived from any rational concepts of duty, laws, or social morality. He writes:

Compassion is an undeniable fact of human consciousness, is an essential part of it, and does not depend on assumptions, conceptions, religions, dogmas, myths, training, and education. On the contrary, it is original and immediate, and lies in human nature itself

The natural justice that compassion embodies is distinct from justice that is framed in laws and enforced by penalties. The fundamental principle of natural justice is do harm to no one. A corollary principle is take from none his own. Our innate compassionate feeling of natural justice counterbalances our self-serving and malicious motives; it keeps us from bringing harm or inflicting injury on another person, or on his or her property or possessions. We live in a world, however, where the competing motive of self-interest presents formidable obstacles to the full expression of compassionate natural justice. So societies have derived a practical form of justice based on legal ordinances and the compulsion of law to maintain peaceful intercourse among competing, self-seeking individuals. The natural justice that arises from compassion, in contrast, is “original and immediate.”

Oh, but if more of our physicians and others in the medical field embodied the true meaning of the word COMPASSION. I truly fear for mankind if we continue down this slippery slope of SELF-SERVING individuals...


Radio interview with Dr. Donald W. Miller: "BRING BACK MEASLES PARTIES:



"MMR vaccination for measles provides immunity against the virus that causes this disease, and people are spared having to suffer through its debilitating manifestations and be subject to possible complications. The MMR shot, however, does not confer lifelong immunity against measles. It only lasts for several years. Booster shots are required, which studies show to be less effective than the initial one.

Health officials, both in the U.S. and UK, blame unvaccinated people and the “anti-vaxxers” for these outbreaks. Assisted by a compliant media, they downplay the fact that the vast majority of people who are contracting measles have been fully vaccinated against it—more than 95 percent in some outbreaks. In the UK, in Northern England, a highly vaccinated part of the country, there were 757 cases in a measles outbreak there in 2013 (January to August). It went unreported. Health authorities steered the UK media in another direction and focused instead on a smaller outbreak in South Wales, which had 40 cases, where vaccine dissenters are more vocal and fewer people have been vaccinated. Unvaccinated people make easy scapegoats in today’s climate of vaccine obedience.

The key question, of course, which officials and pundits do not ask (preferring instead to censure “anti-vaxxers”), is: Why would an unvaccinated person pose a danger to the vaccinated population if the vaccine they had is effective and really works?

With measles re-emerging in developed countries where almost all of their citizens have been vaccinated, a call has gone out to develop a better, next-generation measles vaccine. [1]

One benefit of having measles is that a person so infected will then have lifelong, permanent immunity to it. Mothers transfer antibodies against measles to their babies, which protect them from this disease during their early critical months of life. The MMR shot, however, does not provide lifelong immunity to measles. It only lasts several years, and successively less effective booster shots are required.

There is a second, major benefit of measles that health authorities overlook. Measles helps a child’s immune system grow strong and mature.

Once past the immunologic barriers of skin and mucosa, our (2-trillion-cell) immune system has two components: An innate system, which all animals have; and an evolutionarily more recent adaptive system that vertebrates have. The childhood diseases—measles, mumps, rubella, and chickenpox—play a constructive role in the maturation of the adaptive immune system. Two kinds of helper T-cells (Th) manage this system: cellular T-cells (Th1); and humoral T-cells (Th2), which make antibodies. The Th1 cellular T-cells are especially important because they attack and kill cells in the body that run amok and become cancerous. And they also kill cells that become infected with viruses.

Measles (and other viral childhood diseases) stimulate both the Th1 and Th2 components. The MMR vaccine stimulates predominately the Th2 side. Overstimulation of this part of the adaptive immune system provokes allergies, asthma, and auto-immune diseases. Since the Th1 side thwarts cancer, if it does not get fully developed in childhood a person can wind up being more prone to cancer later in life. Women who had mumps during childhood, for example, have been found to be less likely to develop ovarian cancer compared with women who did not have mumps. (This study was published in the mainstream medical journal Cancer.)

Could the fact that cancer has now become a leading cause of death in children be connected to vaccinations? Only a well-controlled, randomized, blinded, long-term scientific trial would be able to conclusively answer this question. But societal entities that could fund such a study, like the government’s National Institutes of Health (NIH), drug companies that make the vaccine, or the CDC do not feel that it is necessary to conduct one.

The benefits of having measles (at the right age) trumps the MMR vaccine’s benefits, for these two reasons: 1) suffering through the disease bestows lifelong immunity to it; and 2) measles strengthens and helps mature a child’s helper T-cell adaptive immune system, and most importantly its cancer-preventing Th1 side..."


"With good sanitation and nutrition, the pre-vaccine mortality rate of measles in the U.S. was less than 1 in a million (compared with 14 deaths per 100,000 in 1900); seizures occurred in 1 in 3,000 people; and encephalitis, 1 in 100,000, with full recovery in 75 percent of those cases. Investigators have shown that vitamin A substantially lowers the mortality rate and is the crucial treatment for ensuring an uncomplicated, smooth outcome from this childhood disease—at doses of 200,000 to 400,000 IU a day for two days. It is also important to let the disease run its course and not suppress the fever, which can rise to 104-105 degrees, with antipyretics (aspirin). Reducing the fever prolongs the illness and blunts the immune response. As pediatrician Robert Mendelsohn, MD counsels: “When your child contracts an infection, the fever that accompanies it is a blessing, not a curse.” (Also, do not give antibiotics for it alone. They hinder the immune response and napalm the bowel.)

Public health authorities, the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and top medical societies like the American Academy of Pediatrics, American Academy of Family Practice, and the American Medical Association assure parents and the public that all vaccines are safe. Following the CDC’s recommended schedule, American children receive 50 injections of 14 different vaccines by the age of six. The schedule states, “Your child can safely receive all vaccines recommended for a particular age during one visit.”

"The Package Insert for the MMR vaccine (Merck’s M-M-R® II) wasn’t told that. It tells a far more gruesome story. Adverse Reactions that it lists include subacute sclerosing panencephalitis, Guillain-Barre syndrome (a particularly nasty form of autoimmune paralysis), thrombocytopenia (low platelet count), optic neuritis, hearing loss, immune system suppression, inflammatory bowel disease, juvenile diabetes, atypical measles, anaphylaxis, arthritis, pancreatitis, aseptic meningitis, pneumonia, Stevens-Johnson syndrome (a life-threatening skin condition), erythema multiforme, etc. It also lists, “death from various, and in some cases unknown, causes.” The one critical thing that is not anywhere on this list is autism.

CDC officials and health authorities in the various medical organizations unequivocally say that the live-virus MMR vaccine does not cause autism. This is not true. There is, in fact, compelling evidence that the U.S. governmental-medical-pharmaceutical complex ignores, and in some cases actually suppresses, showing that the MMR vaccine does indeed cause autism..."

Latest Developments

"The 50-year, (now) near-mandatory measles vaccine guidelines that trade lifetime natural immunity for temporary vaccine immunity is reaching the stage of blowback. The vaccine is altering the distribution of measles, away from children 5 to 9 years old who are optimally suited to catch it and rarely experience complications, to infants and adults. These age groups are much more likely to suffer serious complications—testicular and ovarian complications in adults and neurological complications in both groups. In the pre-vaccine 1960s only 10 percent of cases occurred in persons over age 10, and 3 percent in persons 15 years and older. Without natural immunity, child-bearing women can no longer protect their offspring from measles (and the vaccine doesn’t work in infants). In a 1992 measles outbreak in Albuquerque, 28 percent of cases were less than 1 year old; in Brownsville, TX, 45%; and in the recent Northern England outbreak, 13 percent of cases were infants. Now 60 percent of all new cases occur in persons over age 10; and 26 percent, in persons 15 years and older.

Short-lived vaccine immunity renders people under age 55-60 vulnerable to contracting measles at a bad age, with infants less than 1 year old and adults over 20 years old at greatest risk. The day may once again come when parents, while avoiding the vaccine, hold measles parties for their children in the age window of 5 to 9 years (like some families now do in Germany) so they can have measles at the safest time in their lives, thereby achieving the benefits of a strengthened immune system and lifelong natural immunity from this disease.

And now Dr. William Thompson, a CDC employee-researcher, has come forward recently as a whistleblower, revealing the fact that the CDC has been hiding the truth about vaccine dangers from the public, specifically with regard to MMR vaccine-induced autism. Like an Edward Snowden in the CDC, he has revealed to Dr. Brian Hooker (the Glenn Greenwald of the piece) that the CDC has committed scientific fraud. This occurred in a 2004 paper published in the journal Pediatrics, written by Dr. Thompson and other CDC employees, which hid the finding that the MMR vaccine had caused a 340 percent increased risk of autism in African-American babies. Dr. Hooker revealed this in a 2014 paper published in the journal Translational Neurodegeneration. But typical of the censorship and suppression practiced in today’s medical police state, it forced the editor of that journal to apologize for publishing this paper and retract it (as has been the case with other studies implicating MMR vaccine with autism, notably one by Dr. Andrew Wakefield published in Lancet in 1998). But in a recent development, the President has granted Dr. Thompson “Official Whistleblower Status and Immunity” to testify before Congress. [5]

The risks of the MMR vaccine are greater than the risks of having measles. This fact is gradually coming to light.

For, as Shakespeare tells us (in The Merchant of Venice, Act 2, Scene 2), “In the end the truth will out.”

@Cynthia Leifer - You are correct. US measles cases declined sharply, after introduction of the measles vaccine during the 1960s. I believe the situation is similar in the UK. Here the single measles vaccine was introduced into the child vaccination schedule in 1968.

It is important NOT to confuse the arguments on this and other threads. Most parents of autistic children, who blame vaccines for their child's regression, tend to blame those vaccines which contain or contained mercury preservative, or those vaccines which contain two or more live viruses, in particular the MMR and MMRV vaccines.

In the UK, MMR vaccine was introduced to the child vaccination schedule in 1988, twenty years after the single measles vaccine. The MMR vaccine was NOT the vaccine responsible for the decline of measles cases in the UK and US; instead the initial sharp drop in measles cases during the 1960s was due to the SINGLE MEASLES VACCINE.

In the UK, the NHS choice of free child single measles vaccinations was deliberately WITHDRAWN by the UK Government, around the millenium year 2000. This action was stated by a Government vaccine spokesperson, to have been necessary in order to save the MMR vaccine, a clear case of profit and face-saving before child safety. It is very wrong to blame Andrew Wakefield for parents declining the MMR vaccine, when those same parents would very likely have permitted their children to have single measles vaccinations.

I think Cynthia Leifer is confusing the graphs showing total measles cases, with graphs showing measles deaths < 1968. These were already in decline in both countries, long before measles vaccinations were introduced, and remember persons older than 45 will have been too old for measles vaccinations.


Let's just put the rest of that Butler article, here:

.."Despite these efforts, Krahling made numerous calls to FDA. These calls remained unanswered until Krahling reported to the FDA that Dr. Krah had removed and/or destroyed Krahling’s evidence.

An FDA agent then came and interviewed Dr. Krah, who apparently told the agent whatever was necessary to allay their concerns, a conversation which Krahling heard. The agent made no attempt to interview any other personnel, check any facilities, laboratory notebooks, or samples to corroborate what had been reported to them.

The lawsuit claims that to this day, Merck has consistently misrepresented the potency by simply quoting the 40 year old data from the pre-MMR monovalent mumps vaccine, thereby misrepresenting the efficacy of four multivalent vaccines: MMR, MMRII, Europe’s MMRvaxpro, and ProQuad, which is MMR plus chickenpox.

According to the two whistleblowers, not only have all the multivalent MMR vaccines been sold under false pretenses, but, as a result of this LACK OF EFFICACY, there have been numerous mumps outbreaks worldwide prompting calls for regular MMR boosters throughout life.

These mumps outbreaks were predicted by Merck’s Dr Krah in 2001, yet Merck allegedly ‘willfully’ withheld this information from multiple governments while consistently claiming there was no need for a new mumps component..."

Several questions need to be asked:

“If the mumps component is actually 95% effective, as stated, would experts be calling for lifelong boosters every 4 – 8 years?”

"Answer: That puzzles me because scientists have known, since 2000, that the mumps vaccine is far less effective than 95%. Harling 05 from the UK stated that blood samples taking during an outbreak in 1998/1999 gave the MMR vaccine a mumps efficacy of 69%..."

Light gray above, is decent immunity. So that equates to about 67% efficacy. One reason that Merck knew they could get away with a low efficacy is that mumps disease is much less infectious than measles (Barsky 09) and a very high rate of subclinical infections, and therefore outbreaks are far more unlikely than if measles vaccines had a similarly low efficacy.

Dayan 08 reported a mumps resurgence, at a time when he was working with CDC. Dayan questioned whether a more effective vaccine was needed.

Of note, is that Dayan was headhunted by Sanofi Pasteur not long after that. Any further research on this by Dayan is unlikely, because Sanofi Pasteur is partnered with Merck in the manufacture of MMRvaxpro, which contains the same defective mumps vaccine component.

Dr Julie Gerberding was head of CDC at the same time as Dayan, and stated: "We have absolutely no information to suggest that there is any problem with the [mumps] vaccine." (Page 29)

After her steadfast loyalty to Merck's mumps vaccine, and fast-tracking Merck's Gardasil vaccine, Dr Gerberding accepted the position of Head of Merck's Vaccine Division, when her tenure at the CDC was curtailed.

Merck states that,

"none of these allegations relate to the safety of its product--said the lawsuit is " completely without merit", and that it plans to "vigorously defend itself." The Whitehouse Station, N.J., drug maker also noted that the U.S. Department of Justice has thus far declined to participate in the case after its own two-year probe."

Presumably Merck will defend themselves publicly in a trial, rather than try to bury their alleged sins under a "motion to dismiss" the case, to stop the public watching Merck defend themselves under cross examination.

However, Merck's comment that nothing in the case speaks to the issue of the mumps vaccine safety is not correct."

However, Merck's comment that nothing in the case speaks to the issue of the mumps vaccine safety is not correct.

After all, the vaccine suposedly worked way back in the 1960s when it was first released.

What changed? According to Krah, the virus mutated every year with repeated passages. If the testing done in the 1960s no longer accurately characterizes the vaccine's efficacy because of the virus' mutation, how can Merck then say those same tests show that the current vaccine, made with a different vaccine virus, is safe?

If the vaccine virus is different today, shouldn't that mandate new safety tests today?

Merck cites the fact that the US Department of Justice has so far declined to participate, as if that adds validity to its claim that the vaccine is okay, and the case has no merit. But the USA government is a huge entity that encompasses lots of different agencies.

It is more accurate to say the Department of Justice didn't join the case. Why?

The whistleblowers have lawyers who are pressing the case. Those lawyers have the whistleblowers for a client.

Why didn't the D of J, join with the whistleblowers?

Well, who are is the Department of Justice's clients?

Two of them would be the FDA and the CDC.

This case goes way deeper than Merck's fraudulent tests.

It also extends to people in the FDA who allegedly authorised and approved those tests in the first place, and staff in the CDC who defended a vaccine, when they already had scientific indictors which showed there were problems with the Mumps vaccine.

There is no way those people could join with the whistleblowers, because to do so would mean they would have to account for their inaction, or actions, whichever way you look at it.

Dr Gerberding would also hold the uncomfortable position of being on both sides of the fence if D of J joined the suit. A house divided against itself cannot stand.

Merck can't claim that the D of J not joining the case, means that the case isn't valid, therefore is some sort of pious victory for Merck.

The Department of Justice declining to join the whistleblowers case, could also be seen as a silent acknowledgement that they know that to do so would bring a group of their own, right into the whisteblower's firing line.

Therefore, to the Department of Justice, not joining the case... and expedient silence about why... is golden. Or yellow."



SNIP(s) from this excellent commentary by Hilary Butler:

"On April 27, 2012, a formal complaint was filed in the Eastern Pennsylvania District Court accusing Merck of a longstanding scheme to mislead and defraud Government health authorities worldwide. Two of Merck’s former employees have accused the pharmaceutical giant of marketing multivalent MMR vaccines under false pretenses. According to the complaint, these vaccines have been mislabeled, misbranded, adulterated and falsely certified as having a 95% efficacy rate..."


..."The former Merck virologists contend that the multivalent mumps component has a vastly reduced efficacy which is directly responsible for mumps outbreaks during the last decade which prompted international calls for MMR booster shots every 4 – 8 years.

Virologists Stephen Krahling and Joan Wlochowski describe how Merck had to recertify the mumps component in 2000, to comply with regulatory requirements in order for the mumps component to be included in two new multivalent MMR vaccines. The usual test, which had certified the mumps component’s efficacy in the 60’s, failed when used in 2000. They claim the results were so low Merck decided to change its own test protocol by testing the vaccine against the weakened mumps vaccine virus instead of the wild (naturally circulating) mumps virus which they used in the past.

When that modification didn’t result in the desired 95% efficacy figure, Merck’s executive directors of vaccine research, Drs Alan Shaw and Emilio Emini, instructed Drs David Krah and Mary Yagodich to implement a vast array of modifications to testing procedures, then, allegedly pressured both Krahling and Wlochowski to participate.

When these modifications also failed to demonstrate the desired 95% efficacy rate, it is alleged that Drs Shaw and Emini, instructed Drs Krah and Yagovich to abandon “gold standard” testing, and implement a new procedure, supposedly with the agreement of FDA, which included adding rabbit antibodies to human blood samples, taken both pre and post vaccination.(The rabbit antibodies were more fully discussed in the first court documents dated August 2010.)

By combining the very low levels of human antibodies with animal antibodies in test samples, a much higher total level of virus neutralization was obtained than could occur from human antibodies alone. The human antibody levels alone would never protect in the real world against wild mumps. But after adding animal antibodies, the human blood samples which had previously failed under the old “gold standard” testing were retested using the “enhanced” protocols and passed with flying colors. New ‘enhanced’ tests showed 100% efficacy, not against wild mumps virus, but against the mumps vaccine virus.

However, combining the animal and human antibodies led to a new problem. In some of the tests more than 80% of pre-vaccine blood samples now showed up as immune. Usually, the highest number of pre-vaccine immune results any scientist could expect is 10%. Further manipulations of the animal antibody levels failed to bring the pre-vaccine blood test results down to the expected 10% levels. According to the complaint, Merck then implemented additional ‘creative’ strategies to show a lack of seroconversion in immune samples in an attempt to reduce the pre-vax level to the expected 10% because had the FDA seen the high numbers of “immune” pre-vaccine samples they would have easily detected the fraudulent test procedures.

Krahling and Wlochowski worked with the same team conducting these tests, but were outraged at what they deemed to be gross scientific deception and fraudulent practices.

When Krahling and Wlochowski attempted to stop what they saw as, “wholesale fabrication of test data to reach its preordained 95% efficacy threshold,” Merck made various attempts to prevent them, including threatening to jail Krahling should he inform the FDA..."

@Cynthia Leifer:

You're defending these folks? You BELIEVE in them? As far as I'm concerned (the Mom of a documented vaccine injured child - his own pediatric staff admitted/noted his injuries), you've sold your soul to the devil.


Cynthia Leifer is an associate professor of immunology at Cornell University and a 2015 Public Voices Fellow at the Op-Ed Project.

Here is a snip from Marcella Piper-Terry's website:

..."The above article was written only to convey a more accurate picture of the death toll of measles prior to the vaccine. It was not an attempt to change anyone’s decision to vaccinate or not vaccinate. It was to shed light on the actual statistics. See. I wrote it at a time when parents were being told how deadly measles is by using articles that cited worldwide measles death rates as though those represented the likelihood of death rates in the United States.

Measles infections were going away, but I was not clear in my explanation, because it was not the focus of the article. Death rates were. Plus, I believed it was glaringly obvious since I was specifically discussing population growth when examining deaths from measles. I’d like to address my claim now that it is apparent that people are also interested in how I could state that measles infections were on their way out.

The CDC uses the number of cases, as opposed to the rate of cases of measles infections, making no attempt to adjust for the drastic population growth in the decade just before the first vaccine was licensed: The Baby Boom. In addition, they do not address the historic 2-3 year cycle of measles.


Our population rose from 139.9M in 1945 to 189.5M in 1963: That’s almost FIFTY MILLION new Americans. Greater than an additional 1/3 of the population was added to the U.S., but it is not even considered when presenting measles data.

In 1958, we saw a large spike in the actual number measles cases (nearly 800K), that is true. This would be expected, given that the Baby Boomers were highly susceptible because they were children, previously unexposed and almost exclusively fed formula (and did not get measles antibodies during infancy from their mothers’ milk.) After that spike, we would expect to see another spike in two to three years, because that is the historic cycle. But that never happened. The number of cases held at around the 400K level, despite the population continuing to increase.

Though the first measles vaccines (which was deemed a failure in ability to create antibodies) was not licensed until the later part of the measles season on the sixth year of the cycle, there was still no major spike. The next measles vaccine was licensed near the end of that measles season that same year. Meanwhile, in the five year span between the 1958 spike and the first vaccines, the population grew by 14.6 million.


In 1957, the AAP’s new committee on nutrition released the new guidelines that doctors would use. In 1958 and 59, when almost every single baby was drinking formula instead of breastmilk, commercial infant formulas were finally fortified with iron. In 1960, Miles Laboratory developed Chocks, the first chewable multivitamin aimed at children. Flinstones followed shortly thereafter. In January of 1961 Kennedy’s first executive order mandated that the USDA donations to the poor include a variety of fresh foods rather than whatever was at a surplus that year. Later, that same year, the USDA was required to donate foods to schools for children who could not afford food. Kennedy continued to support initiatives that helped the poor and minorities until his death in November 1963. The work he began continued after his death. In 1964, President Johnson launched the “War on Poverty.” 1964 brought on the “Food Stamp Act.” Medicare and Medicaid were offered to Americans in 1965. Additionally, by 1965 the proportion of people living in poverty decreased by about 1/3 when compared to the numbers in 1950.


Another great way to show that measles cases had been declining is to look at military records. They used actual rates, kept great records and focused in one one specific age range. In the Civil War, which was in the 1860, the cases reported were 32.2 per 1000 person years. The rate drops to 26.1 in the Spanish American War. During World War I, it was 23.8. And in the second world war, it was down to 4.7 per 1000 man years. It was the same rate decline in the Royal Navy records as well, which recorded a little differently, but still showed a decline. In WWI, the rate of measles was 16.0 per patients admitted for the entire duration. In WWII, the case rate was 2.9 per patients admitted..."

And finally, one of Marcella's comments to a poster re the above article:

"According to the CDC, the rate of vaccination has continued to increase with coverage surpassing the 90% mark and exceeding expectations each year since 2000. Goals were for 90% coverage for individual vaccines and 80% for full series. The first link below is for data from 2000-2007. The second link is for 2013. As you can see, there has been no decrease in vaccination rates. The rates are the highest they have ever been in most areas of the country.

What you see on the news and in the documentaries (especially if you are referring to the NOVA series, which is funded by Merck), is a targeted attempt to fear-monger and turn parents against each other. If you believe what you hear on news stations that receive millions of dollars in funding from pharmaceutical companies, then you need to re-evaluate the sources from which you are receiving your “news.” Count the number of pharmaceutical commercials during the next national newscast.

As for large outbreaks of diseases your generation never had to think about… The overuse of vaccines is causing many of the outbreaks. This is very easy to understand if you dig deep into the research on pertussis. If you care about the truth, I hope you will take the time to read this:

As for the incidence of autism in unvaccinated populations, we have information from the Amish Community:
We also have the large population from HomeFirst Family Practice in Chicago, which is where my recently departed friend, Dr. Mayer Eisenstein and his colleagues have been delivering babies and caring for children for more than 40 years. Dr. Eisenstein never gave a vaccine and he very rarely prescribed antibiotics. There were more than 50,000 children in the practice in the 4 decades of Dr. Eisenstein’s medical career, and the rate of autism was 1 in 25,000. That’s compared to the CDC’s rate announce in March 2014 of 1 in 68 among 12 year-olds. The CDC’s data has indicated a 13-15% yearly increase in autism since the 1990s. Extrapolating the data that means the current rate among 3 year-olds is 1 in 21 among U.S. children, with more than 90% of them being fully vaccinated, according to the CDC’s data. Most schools throughout the country report vaccination rates at 97-100%.

There’s a big difference between 1 in 25,000 among vaccine-free children and 1 in 68 (or 1 in 21) among those who are so highly vaccinated."

The appropriate chart to examine is the number of cases of measles following licensing of the vaccine.

It is true that our ability to provide supportive care has improved survival and reduced deaths from almost any disease. However, the number of people who had the measles decreased 99% after introduction of the vaccine. Vaccines work, period.

@Victor Pavlovic

Victor Pavlovic, "since they are pushing forced vaccination, it's time to eliminate the vaccine court and put this back into the civil system, after all you can't force unlimited vaccines with zero liability."

That was a powerful statement. Maybe we should focus on this some more. They can't have it both ways...


The way this non-event was unspontaneously hyped across the media might lead one to doubt the reality of the whole thing.


Geez ... ya think?

Mark Blaxill, as always is informed, informative, calm, polite, and sane. I'm going to post this to FB, but I fear so many people are not listening, not noticing, and will not lift a finger to stop what every American citizen should be alarmed as hell about: a real threat to our rights as citizens. That Pharma's shills compare us, parents and grandparents who are trying to raise an alarm to defend our own people's traditional freedom, to Holocaust Denying crazies is beyond dark humor -- it's an insult! We are trying to alert people to see what Nazi Germany's citizens did not recognize or did not choose to recognize.

"He said, what the public isn't supposed to know is there are 4 strains in the current outbreak of Measles. The origin of two strains has been identified - one strain is from Guatemala and another one is from El Salvador."

We can rest assured we will NEVER learn this latest measles outbreak .. or .. any in the foreseeable future .. were caused by strains from "Guatemala and El Salvador" .. the origination countries of swarm of immigrant children crossing into country and then being shipped far and wide throughout US.

I hate to say it .. but .. THIS RINGS TRUE.


These graphs/charts put it all in perspective. Thank you!

I heard a talk show host (an MD, among other titles) over the weekend who admittedly is used by the gov't and CDC periodically to help identify a variety of "things," such as viruses. He said, what the public isn't supposed to know is there are 4 strains in the current outbreak of Measles. The origin of two strains has been identified - one strain is from Guatemala and another one is from El Salvador.

Why don't we hear this in the news? (rhetorical question)


It is AMAZING that the CDC can track EVERY damn CASE OF MEASLES in the United States...

OMG 4 more

I would assume the CDC could also track the 130 NEW CASES of Autism each and every day... and report that to the public.

or perhaps a site needs to be set up for that information.

Wonderful dousing of the measles hysteria! I wish everyone realized the flames were stoked by the vaccine companies to sell vaccine.

I am definitely in favor of letting natural measles come back. Measles is not very often dangerous in well-nourished, previously healthy children, and it's extremely valuable for these children to just get the natural disease. But it's also true that when it comes back, and it will, then there will be a small number of deaths from it. At this time there just haven't been enough measles cases to reach the rare death in many thousands of cases. A toddler died of measles in Germany the other day, and nine people in Europe died of it in 2011, out of 28,000 cases. I tried to find out who they were, but only found that several of them were previously healthy adolescents, I don't know about the rest. There were 15 cases of permanent damage in those 28,000 cases. Parents of immunocompromised children will have to do a lot of research and consult with naturopathic and homeopathic doctors to decide whether they think the risk of the vaccine is greater or less than the risk of the disease for their children, once there is no longer almost complete herd immunity in place. But still not a reason to damage healthy children hoping to protect the unhealthy.

And even healthy children can get measles pneumonia (one in 20). In most cases it's viral and self-limiting, but in some cases it's bacterial. It can usually be treated with antibiotics if treatment is started soon enough, but not always. Measles pneumonia is the most common cause of death when it occurs. It can usually be prevented by enforcing complete bed rest from the beginning of the illness to the end of the fever, no baths or showers during fever, and bathrobe and socks even to go to the bathroom. Giving vitamin A (prevents eye damage and other complications): 20,000 IU twice, 24 hours apart, for people over one year old, and 10,000 IU twice for babies under one year old. And by observing a period of isolation (from germs) and recuperation at home for three weeks from the day the rash appears. Measles encephalitis is another possible complication and cause of death, but if no fever reducers of any kind are used (no Tylenol, Ibuprofen, aspirin, sponge baths or tub baths) it is very unlikely. When it occurs, the prognosis is still fighting odds, 20% mortality, 20% permanent brain damage. But since the MMR often causes encephalitis and brain damage, again, you have to make your choice.

But the benefits of natural measles are so great, permanent immunity, the ability to protect infants, stronger immune system, and protection from numerous diseases and several cancers in later life, that it is unfair to deprive children of this most valuable of opportunities for helping their immune system to develop and mature.

The way this non-event was unspontaneously hyped across the media might lead one to doubt the reality of the whole thing. The script in every case seemed to hinge on long disproven allegations against Andrew Wakefield who has never been in a position to influence popular US opinion on MMR vaccination anyway. If they can blatantly lie about that they blatantly lie about an outbreak of measles. Policy above truth and journalists who have long given up on their jobs.


Since they are pushing forced vaccination, it's time to eliminate the vaccine court, and put this back into the civil system, after all you can't force unlimited vaccines with zero liability.


I didn't have a chance to catch this webinar yesterday (sponsored by Bayer ironically) but here is the link to the CDC spin, including videos and Dr. Schuchat's presentation slides.

Let's see if I got this straight ..

"Measles-containing vaccines like MMR now cause many more deaths than measles"


every evening for the last month or so .. our WATCH DOG media faithfully reports the "latest rising number of measles" throughout the United States .. as if those who died from the vaccine simply did not exist.

Sadly .. those toddlers who died from the MMR vaccine are the proverbial "tree falling in the woods" .. if we don't hear it or see it .. we have no idea the tree has fallen.
