Duty to Warn Bad Science or Willful Ignorance at the CDC

Lighthouse failureDuty to Warn Bad Science? or Willful Ignorance at the CDC:
And Why it has Lost its Trustworthiness When it Comes to Vaccine Policy

 By Gary G. Kohls, MD

Despite the fact that I am a physician, I have long been suspicious of the influence of giant multinational medical corporate cartels that are best referred to as Big Pharma, Big Vaccine, Big Medicine, Big Insurance, Big Food, Big Agrichemical, etc. Most clear-headed observers of these industries (that meet the psychiatrist’s DSM definition of sociopathic entities) are justifiably concerned about the inordinate influence that they have over the mainstream media and most of our political parties, legislators and presidents.

These mega-corporations and their cunning multibillionaire owners (the 0.01%) are the paymasters of every politician and political party that thinks that they has to have millions of dollars in their campaign coffers in order to keep their political offices safe. Those paymasters, as is the case with all their other “investments”, expect a handsome long-term return on those investments. Those entities with excess luxury wealth are very serious when it comes to their money. That is why they can be so ruthless when it comes to getting what they want from their stable of politicians, lawyers and the publishers and editors of their newspapers and their television and radio stations.

My consciousness concerning the innate corruption in the vaccine industry was sharply raised when my father (in the totally bogus 1976 Swine Flu that NEVER materialized!) had the peripheral nerves to his hands poisoned by the neurotoxic mercury-containing Swine Flu vaccine. The small muscles that had been previously innervated by both of his radial nerves became permanently paralyzed. Within days the poisonous heavy metal in that vaccine caused a classical Guillain-Barre syndrome that he never recovered from. He never did regain his mastery of what was his lifelong love - fishing

In a now frequently repeated scenario (the latest ones being the Ebola virus “pandemic” and now the equally  bogus Zika virus/microcephaly epidemic), the vaccine industry’s lobbyists are successfully capitalizing on what is very likely an iatrogenic illness (physician or medicine-caused disease).  And the public health agencies (all indoctrinated into believing the med school myths that all vaccines are safe and effective) are  scaring the wits out of us with plausible, but unproven theories about another vaccine-preventable epidemic.

Then, with the constant stream of propaganda from the once respected Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (the CDC) shaping the beliefs of an easily freaked-out populace, president and legislature, the vaccine industry presents a blueprint for fast-tracking through the regulatory process a new, potentially dangerous, and likely untested vaccine that will be easily marketed to blindly pro-vaccine clinics and blindly pro-vaccine physicians to be given to every scared-out-of-their-wits patient in hearing range whose insurance will cover the unaffordable costs.

This is American capitalism, folks, and what is happening before our eyes is the old, tried and true strategy to siphon off a few billion dollars from us taxpayers and at the same time jack up the stock price of the corporation.

In retrospect, by the way, my father’s pro-vaccine 1970s internist was not unlike the current crop of doctors. He had been indoctrinated in med school with the notion that all vaccines are safe and effective, despite the fact that vaccines have never had to go through the rigorous science that most drugs have to do to get approval. He was totally in the dark about what had caused the Guillain-Barre syndrome (he said it was the virus).

He was also oblivious to the fact that mercury (which is still in flu shots and our dentist’s “silver” dental fillings to this day) was a serious poison to all tissues, particularly nerve and brain tissue. Unaware of his missed diagnosis (of the root cause), his ignorance made him continue to blindly inoculate the other patients in his clinic, many of whom were likely damaged in any number of ways by the unnecessary – and dangerous – toxic vaccine ingredients.

Since then, I have been confronted with uncounted numbers of patients and stories about the seriously adverse effects of mercury-containing vaccines, aluminum-containing vaccines, and fluoride-containing prescription drugs - especially when they are cavalierly injected into the muscles of tiny infants whose blood-brain barriers are at their most immature and who are increasingly likely to suffer permanent brain damage, especially when the shots are given in unproven combinations. (Some tiny infants - at their 2, 4 or 6 month doctor visits receive as many as eight different antigens at a time, each shot containing potentially neurotoxic substances [aluminum, mercury, formaldehyde, antibiotics, viral particles, unfilterable contaminants, etc] that have additive toxic effects and  - what is far worse - synergistic effects when given simultaneously.)

Recently cunning lobbyists from  multinational corporations, particularly the vaccine industry, the genetically-altered mosquito industry, the insecticide and mosquito repellant industries, etc have been influencing the CDC and many well-meaning folks in the legislative and executive branches of government (including President Obama), creating a Zika virus freak-out no different from the other pseudo-epidemic hoaxes in the past (Swine Flu, Bird Flu, Avian Flu, SARS, etc, etc.)

In my reading and research, I came across a CDC document that claimed to teach physicians about the toxicology of aluminum. The book-length opus (see a few excerpts below) had been approved by the notorious (at least in vaccine skeptic circles) Dr Julie Gerberding, who had gone through the infamous government service-directly-to-industry revolving door in 2009.  In Dr Gerberding’s case she went from CDC public service official (where, as head of the CDC, she had shepherded Merck’s untested-for-long-term-safety-OR-efficacy, the first Human Papilloma Virus vaccine Gardisil]) to soon become Director of Merck & Company’s Vaccine Division. See more of the outrageous financial details below (hint: she received a reported $2.5 million salary at Merck, with generous stock options from the company as well).

I am outraged by the poor research that had been done by the various governmental agencies that are supposed to be regulating corporations. Everybody admits it is a fox ruling the henhouse situation. Most of the research quoted in the CDC aluminum toxicology document below was from the 1980s and 1990s, totally ignoring all the new sobering research that reveals how seriously poisonous are aluminum-adjuvanted vaccines. There is no recognition that vaccines are dangerous.

For more details about the new research on the neuro-toxicology of aluminum adjuvants, and the unlikelihood that the Brazilian microcephaly epidemic was caused by a mosquito virus, please google “Zika Virus Freakout – Gary Kohls” and read my series of columns on the subject.  Then for much more click on http://duluthreader.com/articles/2015/02/18/4846_vaccine_induced_immune_overload_and_the_epidemic-1 to read a number of columns that I have written over the past 14 months on related topics, including mitochondrial damage from vaccine ingredients, brain damage from prescription drugs and vaccines and many other articles on the  vitally important now well-established ASIA syndrome that the CDC, FDA, AAP, AMA, AAFP and the medical establishment are either ignorant about or are otherwise refusing to acknowledge (google the Autoimmune/inflammatory Syndrome Induced by Adjuvants).

In the meantime read the following CDC document that hardly mentions the now well-known fact that aluminum is a neurotoxin that, when it damages the brains of fetuses, is then legitimately called a teratogen. (A teratogen is any substance that can disturb the development of an embryo or fetus and thus cause a birth defect in the child.) The document talks about the toxicity of aluminum being given by mouth or inhalation or trans-dermally (through the skin) and even intravenously, but never mentions that aluminum-adjuvanted vaccines are injected intramuscularly, where they are dramatically more toxic than by any other route. It is a frightening example of bad science, which translates, of course, into bad medicine.

The CDC should be apologizing to every vaccine-injured baby, child, adult and family member and until it does, its veracity in the future needs to be constantly questioned. Here are portions of the 2008 document, which, to my knowledge, has not been updated. The italicized sentences immediately below have been added to the text by myself, and the underlining in the main text was also added by myself, in order to highlight certain important points, omissions or distractions.

______________________________________________________________________________

Important note: Dr Gerberding was appointed by George W. Bush to serve as CDC Director starting in 2002. She was highly influential in subverting the massive amount of evidence that proved, in the minds of many scientists, physicians and millions of American parents, that the CDC’s over-vaccination schedule of infants and children was the basis of the huge autism epidemic (partially caused, incidentally, by Dr Gerberding’s future employer Merck & Co, vaccine industry giant and marketer of the dangerous and increasingly discredited HPV vaccine Gardisil ).

 

Dr Gerberding resigned her post at the CDC on January 21, 2009, when President Obama asked for her resignation.

In late 2009, Dr Gerberding was hired by Merck & Co. Inc, and a year later became President of Merck's Vaccines Division at an estimated salary of $2.5 million per year. She “served” as vaccine director for 5 years and, in January 2015, was promoted to Executive Vice President of Strategic Communications, Global Public Policy and Population Health at Merck & Co. Inc.

 

In a stock transaction dated May 8th, 2015, Dr Gerberding sold 38,368 shares of Merck stock on the open market. The stock was sold at an average price per share of $60.99, for $2,340,000. Earlier that day, she had exercised 46,208 stock options that had been granted her from Merck in 2011 and 2012.

HOW MIGHT I BE EXPOSED TO ALUMINUM?

 

Consumer Products

People are exposed to aluminum in some cosmetics, antiperspirants, and pharmaceuticals such as antacids and buffered aspirin.

  • Antacids have 300–600 mg aluminum hydroxide (approximately 104– 208 mg of aluminum) per tablet, capsule, or 5 milliliter (mL) liquid dose. Little of this form of aluminum is taken up into the bloodstream.
  • Buffered aspirin may contain 10–20 mg of aluminum per tablet
  • Vaccines may contain small amounts of aluminum compounds, no greater than 0.85 mg/dose.

HOW CAN ALUMINUM ENTER AND LEAVE MY BODY?

Enter your body

Inhalation

A small amount of the aluminum you breathe will enter your body through your lungs.

Ingestion

A very small amount of the aluminum in food or water will enter your body through the digestive tract. An extremely small amount of the aluminum found in antacids will be absorbed.

Dermal contact

A very small amount may enter through your skin when you come into contact with aluminum.

Leave your body

 

Most aluminum in food, water, and medicines leaves your body quickly in the feces. Much of the small amount of aluminum that does enter the bloodstream will quickly leave your body in the urine.

HOW CAN ALUMINUM AFFECT CHILDREN?

This section discusses potential health effects in humans from exposures during the period from conception to maturity at 18 years of age.

Effects in children

Brain and bone disease caused by high levels of aluminum in the body have been seen in children with kidney disease. Bone disease has also been seen in children taking some medicines containing aluminum. In these children, the bone damage is caused by aluminum in the stomach preventing the absorption of phosphate, a chemical compound required for healthy bones. Aluminum is found in breast milk, but only a small amount of this aluminum will enter the infant’s body through breastfeeding. Typical aluminum concentrations in human breast milk range from 0.0092 to 0.049 mg/L. Aluminum is also found in soy-based infant formula (0.46–0.93 mg/L) and milk-based infant formula (0.058–0.15 mg/L).

Birth defects

We do not know if aluminum will cause birth defects in people. Birth defects have not been seen in animals. Very young animals appeared weaker and less active in their cages and some movements appeared less coordinated when their mothers were exposed to large amounts of aluminum during pregnancy and while nursing. In addition, aluminum also affected the animal’s memory. These effects are similar to those that have been seen in adults. It does not appear that children are more sensitive than adult animals.

Distribution

The normal level of aluminum in the human brain ranges from 0.25 to 0.75 mg/kg w/w, with gray matter containing about twice the concentration found in the white matter (Alfrey et al. 1976; Arieff et al. 1979; McDermott et al. 1978; Roider and Drasch 1999). There is evidence that with increasing age of humans, aluminum concentrations may increase in the brain tissue (Alfrey 1980; Crapper and DeBoni 1978; Markesbery et al. 1981; McDermott et al. 1979; Stitch 1957; Tipton and Shafer 1964); aluminum levels in serum may also increase with aging (Zapatero et al. 1995).

Page 104

Inhalation Exposure

A portion of the small particles reach the alveoli where they can be transferred to blood (especially for soluble compounds), or taken up by alveolar macrophages through phagocytosis and transported to pulmonary lymph nodes for insoluble compounds.

Page 106

Oral Exposure

In addition to distribution of aluminum to the brain (hippocampus), bone, muscle, and kidneys of orally exposed animals, there is evidence in animals that aluminum crosses the placenta and accumulates in the fetus and distributes to some extent to the milk of lactating mothers (Cranmer et al. 1986; Golub et al. 1996; Yokel 1985; Yokel and McNamara 1985).

Dermal Exposure

Elevated levels of aluminum were also observed in the fetus, providing evidence of transplacental transfer of aluminum.

Page 107

Other Routes of Exposure

When there is inadequate elimination of aluminum from the body, as in nondialyzed uremic patients, increased aluminum concentrations are detected in serum, bone tissue, liver, spleen, brain, and skeletal muscle (Alfrey et al. 1980; Arieff et al. 1979). In hemodialysis patients exposed by infusion to large amounts of aluminum over long periods of time (with inadequate removal of aluminum by the kidneys and dialysis machines), increased aluminum concentrations are observed mostly in the spleen, followed by the liver and skeletal system (Alfrey 1980; Alfrey et al. 1980). A study in rabbits found a significantly lower serum half-life in renally-impaired animals, as compared to renally-intact animals (27 hours versus 14 hours); this is likely due to the diminished volume of distribution in the renally-impaired rabbits (Yokel and McNamara 1988).

The distribution of aluminum following intravenous, subcutaneous, intraperitoneal, and intramuscular exposure has been evaluated in studies with experimental animals (Cranmer et al. 1986; Du Val et al. 1986; Flarend et al. 1997; Leblondel and Allain 1980; Yokel and McNamara 1985, 1989; Yokel et al. 2001b). Results of these animal studies indicate that aluminum distributes to a number of tissues, organs, and biological fluids (Du Val et al. 1986; Leblondel and Allain 1980; Yokel and McNamara 1989).

In rabbits given a single intravenous dose of aluminum lactate, aluminum concentrations did not increase above controls in the cerebellum, white brain tissue, hippocampus, spinal cord, adrenal glands, bone, heart, testes, or thyroid (Yokel and McNamara 1989). Treated animals did have significant increases of aluminum in the liver, serum, bile, kidneys, lungs, and spleen. Throughout the 128 day study, the liver of exposed rabbits had over 80% of the total body burden of aluminum. Persistence of aluminum in the various tissues, organs, and fluids varied. Estimated half-times of aluminum were 113, 74, 44, and 42 days in the spleen, liver, lungs, and serum, respectively. The kidneys of treated rabbits demonstrated

Page 108

two half-times with an initial time of 4.2 and 2.3 days for the renal cortex and renal medulla, respectively, and a second half-time of >100 days for kidney in general; the relative amounts subject to each half-time were not addressed. The half-life of aluminum in the brain of rats receiving an intravenous dose of aluminum citrate was approximately 150 days (Yokel et al. 2001b).

Subcutaneous injection of rabbits with aluminum chloride daily for 28 days was associated with significant accumulation of aluminum (measured at the end of the exposure period) in bone, followed in order by significantly increased aluminum concentrations in renal cortex, renal medulla, liver, testes, skeletal muscle, heart, brain white matter, hippocampus, and plasma (Du Val et al. 1986). Because the brain tissue of treated rabbits had the lowest aluminum concentrations of the tissues evaluated, the authors suggested that there was a partial blood-brain barrier to entry of aluminum.

Distribution of aluminum to tissues following intraperitoneal exposure depends in part on the type of aluminum compound administered and on the aluminum concentration in blood (Leblondel and Allain 1980). Mice were administered 54 mg Al/kg as aluminum chloride, nitrate, lactate, or gluconate by a single intraperitoneal injection. The blood concentrations of aluminum, which reached a peak within 20 minutes, increased significantly with gluconate (99.5 mg/L), increased to high levels with lactate (4.5 mg/L), and increased marginally with nitrate and chloride (0.3 mg/L). Aluminum concentrations in the brain tissue of treated mice significantly increased only with aluminum gluconate and only at extremely high blood aluminum concentrations of 20–100 mg/L; the half-life of aluminum in the brain was approximately 90 minutes. At blood aluminum concentrations of 2–4 mg/L, there was no increase in brain aluminum with any of the compounds evaluated. Interpretation of this study is limited by the short monitoring period (apparently 80 minutes); thus, the study does not take into consideration possible differences in absorption rate between aluminum compounds. Differences in brain aluminum levels following administration of different aluminum compounds may also be due to the presence of carrier systems that can transport aluminum into or out of the brain; this has been demonstrated for aluminum citrate (Allen et al. 1995).

Following intramuscular administration of aluminum hydroxide or aluminum phosphate vaccine adjuvants in rabbits, increased levels of (radio-labeled) 26Al were found in the kidney, spleen, liver, heart, lymph nodes, and brain (in decreasing order of aluminum concentration) (Flarend et al. 1997).

There is also evidence from animal studies indicating that aluminum administered parenterally accumulates to a small extent in the milk of lactating mothers, and that aluminum crosses the placenta and

 

Page 109

accumulates in fetal tissue (Cranmer et al. 1986; Yokel and McNamara 1985; Yumoto et al. 2000). Intraperitoneal exposure of pregnant mice to aluminum chloride on gestation days 7–16 has been associated with significantly increased concentrations of aluminum in both placental and fetal tissues (Cranmer et al. 1986). Following a single subcutaneous injection of 26Al on gestation day 15, 0.2 and 0.21% of the dose was detected in the placenta and fetus, respectively, 5 days after the injection (Yumoto et al. 2000). Within the fetus, the level of 26Al in the brain was as high as 30% of that in the fetal liver; in contrast, the level of 26Al in the brain of the dam was only 1% of the level in the liver. Intravenous, intraperitoneal, or subcutaneous exposure of lactating rats, rabbits, or mice to aluminum lactate or aluminum chloride has been associated with increased concentrations of aluminum in milk (Muller et al. 1992; Yokel and McNamara 1985). The amount of aluminum detected in milk 24 hours after exposure was estimated to be 2.4% of the intravenous dose and 3.3% of the subcutaneous dose (Yokel and McNamara 1985). Subcutaneous injection of 26Al in rats on lactation day 1 through 20, resulted in significant elevation in aluminum levels in the suckling rats (Yumoto et al. 2000, 2003). On lactation day 2, elevated levels of 26Al were detected in the liver, but not in the kidney, brain, or blood; 26Al was detected in these tissues on lactation day 9 (Yumoto et al. 2000).

One of Dr. Russell Blaylock's best lectures re deadly fluoride:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fB3xcN_eoPo

Gary Ogden

Maurine Meleck: Yes, all true. I've recently learned, also, that the Manhattan Project was the beginning of the fluoride cover-up, as vast amounts were used in the production of the bombs, and workers suffered serious ailments as a result of their exposure. The official reports of this are still classified 70 years later, and other information from principals in the project, in manuscript form, have fallen down a CIA rabbit hole in the archives of a Jesuit university in Maryland whose name I can't recall at the moment.

Thanks to Bob Moffit for setting us on a course correction. After years of denying that autism is genetic we now understand that the cause is indeed genetic- Genetic human greed.

All the words in the post and comments, remind me of the reality: It was a day at my little nursery school and a couple stood at the gate, telling me that they wanted admission for their daughter, who could not be put in school earlier because she was suffering from a life- threatening kidney ailment. I asked them if they went on vaccinating her during her illness and they replied that they did. I went back inside and reappeared with a piece of paper which listed vaccines used in India. The column to the right showed mercury content. The next column showed aluminium content. At the top of the page - in large print- Mercury- Toxic and Aluminium - Toxic. I held the paper in front of them and said - "See- these are both nephrotoxins !" They stood erect and still, no flicker of emotion on their faces. No questions...... About a year and a half later they told me that despite one exacerbation , they were now confident that their daughter would be alright.

Maurine Meleck

Good post Gary. In fact I will take it even a step further. From what I've read, the Cold War was created by the US, not only to be on top of Russia, but to use scare techniques on the American population to further advance their weapons and missiles programs in a bid for total world domination. The battle following WWII between Russia and the US was to steal the blueprints for all the advancements that Germany had made in the previous decades in weapons. The US got most of it. In fact, some have written that the Manhattan project would never have been completed without what the US took out of Germany, including its best scientists.

Citizen Scientist Xileen

Both (AL) Aluminum listed as other metals and (HG) Mercury listed as a liquid are Elements on the Periodic Table and are not synthetically prepared.

So where is the source of this aluminum and mercury coming from that is being added to these vaccines?

Does anyone have the answer to this question?

angie

There is definitely no free market in the US. I'm all for free market when I am given a choice to truly educate myself regarding a purchase or refuse the purchase. That isn't what's happening here. We are a corporate oligarchy plain and simple. So sad to see what we have become. We are a nation that stands back and lets people kill our children. We don't care, sometimes even when they are our own!!! Then those of us that try to raise ourselves up and save our family are ridiculed and even criminalized. Truth really is stranger than fiction.

Maurine Meleck

Hey Bob-Your comments here are always intelligent and insightful. I don't think we disagree on anything here. I only want to add that the government and corporations are the same thing. Just as the medical/industrial and military complex are all intertwined. In fact, all of it comes together in one large world dominating machine. And yes, you and I go back many years. Josh is 18 now.

Gary Ogden

Maurine Meleck: I agree that WWII was the defining moment in setting us on the course to become what we have become. The U.S. and the USSR emerged from that conflict as the sole world powers, and although the USSR had a vast industrial capacity like us and had gained a large chunk of new territory in Eastern Europe, we had an empire, institutions better able to foster creative innovation, a more nimble economy, and a more forgiving climate. All governments exist to protect the financial interests of the ruling class, but after the war we had Allen Dulles, who created the lethal and unaccountable enforcement arm that the oligarchs have utilized ever since to guard their primacy. It really doesn’t matter who the president is, or who is elected to congress, or what –ism we call it, they are in charge, and will brook no opposition to their agenda, which is wealth accumulation. You can be certain that no U.S. president or congress member knows what is going on with the spooks.

@Tim

All I know is that when I mentioned aluminum was in vaccines, my science and engineer friends really took notice and seemed shocked.

Bob Moffit

Hi Maureen .. I remember you fondly .. after all .. we go back a long way .. probably fourteen years or so .. us both being grandparents of vaccine damaged children.

Please accept my response with the same graciousness as it is offered.

The only reason I commented on capitalism is because I disagreed with Dr. Kohls initial comment .. wherein he said:

"This is American capitalism, folks, and what is happening before our eyes is the old, tried and true strategy to siphon off a few billion dollars from us taxpayers and at the same time jack up the stock price of the corporation."

My friend .. your initial comment .. which I did not challenge .. said:

"For decades Capitalism has allowed a small percentage of people to amass the majority of the world's wealth (it didn't have to be that way) and to be able to manipulate governments in their favor."

(we agree .. it not only "didn't have to be that way" .. it SHOULDN'T AND COULDN'T HAVE BEEN THAT WAY .. WITHOUT OUR GOVERNMENT'S CONSENT)

In any event ... your most recent comment said:

"We have never before reached these heights in the world of the capitalistic/industrial complex with all its technology. Perhaps it is the end result of what we once knew of as small private enterprise. Who needs local farms when we have Monsanto? Is this all the result of genetic human greed?"

I think we agree .. the country we live in today is the direct RESULT OF GENETIC HUMAN GREED .. but .. that "genetic human greed" is NOT limited only to the greed of "capitalistic" corporate CEO's .. it is also shared with government greed for power of bureaucrats as well.

Consider your comment:

"Who needs local farms when we have Monsanto"

Local farms were the very definition of rural .. unindustrialized .. American "capitalism" .. upon which America achieved the greatness it became .. where "free competition" .. let CONSUMERS decide which local farms produced the BEST products.

However .. the U.S. government is probably one of a diminishing few supposedly "capitalistic" countries .. (indeed most .. if not all of Europe) .. that absolutely refuses to require labels on GMO products .. because .. our GOVERNMENT is more invested in PROTECTING MONSANTO PROFITS . than protecting rights of people to CHOOSE the safer products of local farmers.

That is NOT FREE MARKET CAPITALISM .. that is either SOCIALISM OR FACISM ..

Consider .. without our government's assistance .. Monsanto's GMO's would be exposed to the true "free market" forces of COMPETITION.

Why do you think they spend so much MONEY in the US to "protect THEIR competitive "free" market?

Angus Files

The world today is being squeezed into serfdom by the families who have all the gold. We have all witnessed the deaths, maiming, and dumbing down of the human race, by vaccines. Populations to come will carry some if not all the vaccine damage by dna transfer to the new born. Bill Gates proudly puts his name to that one, no wonder these leaders want to live forever because they know where they are going, and it ain`t hot enough. Technology which stops the brain from really having to apply any grey matter to solve complex problems. Countries re-located and force mixed into alien cultures, weather, and historically opposite whilst the country they belong to is reduced to dust.If anyone thinks that any country has a good guy running it ,for the people, who is still alive, think again. The leaders are altogether and targeting us the population the human race.Everything is going to plan divide and rule is ace, and has been for the past 300 years.How it is stopped is another question. I think it will take a natural disaster such as a meteor strike to turn the tables on gold - gold cant keep you alive if the planet and infrastructure is bust .I have no problem with population control, no problem with vaccines, no problem with Monsanto, et-al providing they practice what they preach, start with themselves keep it to themselves, and stop populating themselves.

MMR RIP

Maurine Meleck

To John, Bob, Gary etc. A point of fact is that "Capitalism" and its growth has never been tested before. (unless one believes the alien nonsense that the History Channel promotes). Philosophers have written about this subject for many years.We have never before reached these heights in the world of the capitalistic/industrial complex with all its technology. Perhaps it is the end result of what we once knew of as small private enterprise. Who needs local farms when we have Monsanto? Is this all the result of genetic human greed? I wouldn't even try to answer that. In my opine, I believe that WWII was the defining point in the US in particular as well as some of the other industrialized nations. Yes, in the past, many countries have been invaded by others for power and monetary gain.
But the realization of the ability to purposely wage wars for financial gain, especially with advanced weaponry, really took hold following the War. The government's ability to control the population with secrets, lies and propaganda took hold like never before and the rest as we say "is history."

Bob Moffit

@ Janette Bishop

"We've been taught to call it capitalism by somewhat controlled (and somewhat mandated) government schools (and to think capitalism is to blame for problems some argue were actually caused by cronyism--I'm no economist, but some of the arguments are compelling), but whatever we live under, it's not free-market capitalism."

Admittedly .. I also am .. "no economist" .. yet .. I strongly agree .. that "whatever we live under, it's not free-market capitalism"

In my humble .. uneducated opinion .. we can rightfully argue if we are a socialist country or a fascist country .. but .. to continue arguing we remain the capitalist country we once were .. is to deny what we have become.

We now live under what can only be described as "crony capitalism" .. which is either socialism or fascism .. because .. it sure as hell is NOT the "free market .. competitive capitalism" .. that has made the USA the greatest nation in history.

Jeannette Bishop

Thank you for shining a light on the dangerous culture of trust (vested interest?) in the corrupted, and particularly with a focus on aluminum!

Regarding the discussion of "capitalism," children can't even sell lemonade without breaking the law in today's American "capitalism."

Everything is being channeled it appears to me (even spare change for a beverage), at the destruction of overall wealth and productivity (or increasing poverty and increasing insecurity and sense of dependence upon the goodwill of those with the control), into the hands of a few. We've been taught to call it capitalism by somewhat controlled (and somewhat mandated) government schools (and to think capitalism is to blame for problems some argue were actually caused by cronyism--I'm no economist, but some of the arguments are compelling), but whatever we live under, it's not free-market capitalism.

They're driving out the mom and pop businesses in so many communities (is it solely through regulation and "welfare" for the big guys or are there other means?) that many communities are starting to look alike in terms of the chain store purchasing choices.

We've already seen what doctors do with no liability on one side of choice and probably financial constraints like massive student load debt, insurance protocols for reimbursement, etc., as well as liability on the other side of the choice.

What will we see with Obamacare standard of care protocols written by corporations (run by people I can't say aren't often eager to just get us out of the way)?

I think we have our own cocktail of abuses. Yes, when we see what the mob stuff on blogs that is fascism. The state and its surrogates menacing professionals: that is facism. It is like the fascism of Mussolini, Franco and Hitler in some ways. In the past the people who owned business were responsible. But now we have people who control the capital who are not responsible. We have the government industrial complex which Eisenhower described 55 years ago - he warned that this would be the great issue of our society. It may not be absolutely like anything and the past though quite like some very bad things at the same time. History tells us that it is very easy to make large numbers of people believe irrational things and behave very badly.

"Same thing, Bob. At the turn of the 20th century, 90-95% (or so) of Americans were small family farmers. As American capitalism grew, so did it's controlling power, always stepping on the back of the masses to succeed"

I respectfully disagree .. there is quite a distinction between Capitalism and Fascism .. as I tried to elucidate by quoting the supposed "founder of Fascism" Benito Mussolini in my previous comments.

Unfortunately .. it wasn't only American capitalist that grew .. so to did our government .. eventually turning our once capitalistic country into one more identified as fascist.

Capitalism supposedly works because of COMPETITION between companies ... making an unfettered "free market" prosper. Unfortunately, our government today our "free market" is mostly run by "regulatory agencies" .. under the management of unelected, unaccountable "career bureaucrats" who have been more or less captured by the industries they are supposed to be regulating. Their main purpose is to install regulations .. more or less written by lobbyists .. that protect "big" companies from competitors.

A prime example is the vaccine industry .. GOVERNMENT has installed regulations and laws that PROTECT the industry .. not only from competition .. but .. from being held accountable for the damage they continue to impose on our children.

If the U.S. were a truly capitalistic country .. there would be no Vaccine Court .. otherwise .. vaccines sales would rely totally on the "free market" rather than government mandate.

Who do you think created the Vaccine Court? I would suggest it could not have been created without GOVERNMENT license .. no doubt at the urging and funding of the vaccine industry. Consider ..

Who benefits most from the Vaccine Court .. the industry .. or .. the US government who mandates vaccines for the people? That BOTH industry and government profit from the Court .. is not CAPITALISM .. IT IS FASCISM.

Again .. it is only my small opinion .. but .. I do not agree Capitalism and Fascism are the "same thing".

Oops John Stone of course that should have been Sauvageau is suing the Alberta government. She was apparently much more credentialed than the other chief medical examiner.

BC warrior mom

John Stone, you are right Savageau did not get her contract renewed as she said she "would not sell her soul" for them and cover up medical information at high levels. She is currently dying the Alberta government. Many are sadly trying to characterize her information as to Ezekiel's meningitis being viral as reliable. The really great thing is you can see that many people in the Canadian public see what this is all really about: Medical choice being stripped away and parents being scapegoated.

The "TOXICOLOGICAL PROFILE FOR ALUMINUM" referenced in the article simply does not address the issue of aluminum adjvants in vaccines. There are only three references to this use in the entire paper. One just says "Aluminum compounds such as aluminum hydroxide, aluminum phosphate, or aluminum sulfate (alum) are commonly used as an adjuvant in many vaccines .icensed by the FDA; the amount of aluminum in vaccines is limited to no more than 0.85 mg/dose (Baylor et al. 2002)." The others are references to aluminum adjuvant kinetic studies are Flarend et al. 1997 and Mahieu et al. 1998, 2003, 2005, 2006, both extremely limited in scope. (http://www.atsdr.cdc.gov/toxprofiles/tp22.pdf)

The bulk of the harm from aluminum adjuvant is because it is in nanoparticle form, too large to be excreted by the kidneys. Instead the aluminum nanoparticles are taken up by macrophages and carried throughout the body and brain where they cause long-term inflammation, causing brain and immune system dysregulation.

An excellent resource for aluminun adjuvant information is vaccinepapers.org, see:

Good article. Thanks for bringing up the adjuvant aluminum and the thinking about it from inside the CDC. The aluminum info the CDC provided to its employees is so vague that someone who didn't bother to do any independent research would simply toss the paperwork on the desk and forget it. This is what is going on with the billions of dollars funneled into that big building. It's such a crime but also a giant waste.

I have focused on aluminum because there is SO much research on it due to the fact that since the Sixties there has been a hypothesis that it causes Alzheimer's and Lou Gehrig's disease. There has been research that shows exactly how aluminum disrupts the ATP cycle, the phospholipids on the cell membrane, and effects gene expression. In other words, research extends from drinking water studies, to photographing aluminum in the brain tangles of Alzheimer's patients, to tracing the routes of aluminum through the organs. The key discovery of the last 10 years is that aluminum injected into the muscle is picked up by the macrophages and distributed throughout the body including the brain. Injected aluminum is 100% is absorbed while only .3% of ingested aluminum is absorbed.

It boggles my mind that people responsible for the health of children care so little about the health of children. If people knew what I know they would never let anyone inject them with any vaccine. Everyone waits until it's too late. There is no such thing as a safe vaccine because as stated by the Supreme Court in 2011: Vaccines are unavoidably unsafe.

You are not far off the mark but I believe the point is that big businesses are not like they were a century ago. They are as JK Galbraith was saying in 1999 (see my link below to 'An Article for Independence Day") great bureaucracies in which no one is liable (and of course doubly so in the case of vaccines). For a pharma company a bad medicine (like Vioxx) is at worst a financial liability and not one the bureaucracy has to pay for if they are found out - it is simply a financial risk of the shareholders. No one goes to prison, no one even loses their bonuses. Meanwhile, the pharma lobby can buy out government and every blessed politician from the petty cash. And they control the media. What we have is an increasingly brutal oligarchy.

"I disagree that "American capitalism" is responsible for what is happening before our eyes .. I believe it is "American Fascism" that has replaced the first 150 years of American capitalism .. under which our country once .. decades ago .. greatly prospered."

Same thing, Bob. At the turn of the 20th century, 90-95% (or so) of Americans were small family farmers. As American capitalism grew, so did it's controlling power, always stepping on the back of the masses to succeed. That's why workers formed unions, to protect themselves from American capitalism. The elite eventually weakened unions to the point where we are today, and have smothered society with it's voracious greed. It's kind of like strip mining, only with people.

This is an awful case by the looks of it but my understanding was that Dr Sauvageau had heroically resigned her job to contest the official cause of death:

Yes to Bob Moffit, John Stone, Hans Litten Maurine Meleck,and everyone else and a big thank you to Dr. Kohl. It is a cruel irony that most of that campaign money that has bought our government makes no difference in how people vote. It is not widely known but well-established that political advertising has no influence on decisions people make in the voting booth, but merely provides employment for consultants (Remember Ben Carson’s operation?). There is a good article about this, “Down the Tube,” in the April Harpers by Andrew Cockburn, a descendent of Admiral Sir George Cockburn, a painting of whom appears in The Age of Autism, who freed 4,000 slaves in the Chesapeake Bay region, and advanced on Washington with a regiment of them in full British naval uniform (the “Colonial Marines”), after President Madison had the temerity to invade Canada.

BC warrior mom

Yesterday the parents of Ezekiel Stephan were found guilty by the Canadian system of justice. The jury apparently found no reasonable doubt by the fact that the child had viral meningitis as declared by Dr. Anny Sauvageau, Chief Medical Officer. I read witness accounts that found the judge Jerke to be very obviously biased in this case. God help us all that we will have to run our child to the doctor with so much as a sniffle and that the medical system is not held to the same standard. I hope there is an appeal and re trial. It also makes me wonder if the medical board will now find more complaints and suing. I know a family who are victims of a medical "mistake" and they will not play nice, especially when this kind of travesty is allowed to happen. Yes, be very afraid of socialized medicine America.

Hans Litten

Well said Maurine Meleck .

But Maurine , what happens when the lock down the internet , because that is where much of our research is done (for instance its where I start , to find the books I need to buy and read) , and what if the lock down the written word in books (obviously the MSM is already gone) .

The googleCIA people have already implemented the "knowledge vault" working out of Ldn somewhere , which decides which stories are true and which are false .

Another thing I notice is certain books are near impossible to get hold of , and even if you do find a copy , they then cost the earth . For example Archie Kalokerinos "Every Second Child" which is selling for £1000+ (the subject matter , the vaccinocide of the Aboriginal people by the Aussie Govt - preface written by Linus Pauling no less , twice nobel pize winner , and apparently he narrowly missed out on a third , Watson and Crick pipped him to the structure of DNA).

Will there always be a way ? An escape route ?
I'm not so sure there will .
We need Anti-vaxxers or at least vaccine questioners entering political office and asking the questions from the inside . Its clear the dimwits we have in currently don't understand what is being planned (they are clueless) .

John Stone

Hi Maurine

If it was old-fashioned capitalism someone might be liable - with corporatism no one is:

My point is that it's a moot point to put the onus on capitalism or fascism because both are responsible for what has happened to the US government and many world governments. If one understands history "outside the box" for longer than the last century, you would see how many years this cancer has been growing into something that now encompasses every aspect of our lives. For decades Capitalism has allowed a small percentage of people to amass the majority of the world's wealth(it didn't have to be that way) and to be able to manipulate governments in their favor. For me, two things have changed in more recent decades. One is the increase in modern technology which has allowed those that wish to dominate--the ability to carry this out with massive wars and massive control of populations. Through modern propaganda and deceit a government of the few can do this. However, today's technology has also enabled many of us firsthand to witness the lies and propaganda and understand what is taking place. Just my two cents of opine.

John Stone

Thank you Dr Kohls,

So many gaps, so many assumptions - and an urcharted sea of damage.

Bob Moffit

Great contribution of information .. especially regarding aluminum that is INJECTED directly into perfectly healthy .. innocent toddlers .. at the most critical stage of early development .. thereby submitting those infants to unnecessary risk .. causing untold harm to them.

In spite of all the scientific evidence showing the dangers of introducing aluminum into ANYONE .. let alone infants .. our public health officials and elected representatives continue to recommend and approve vaccines containing aluminum .. that only serves to satisfy the "vested interests" of the manufacturers and public health regulators .. rather than our children.

In any event .. with all due respect for Dr. Kohls .. I would disagree with the following definition he gave:

"This is American capitalism, folks, and what is happening before our eyes is the old, tried and true strategy to siphon off a few billion dollars from us taxpayers and at the same time jack up the stock price of the corporation."

I disagree that "American capitalism" is responsible for what is happening before our eyes .. I believe it is "American Fascism" that has replaced the first 150 years of American capitalism .. under which our country once .. decades ago .. greatly prospered.

Consider the following Urban Dictionary definition of FASCISM .. which is based upon the ideas of Benito Mussolini .. considered the "founder of fascism":

1."Everything in the state". The Government is supreme and the country is all-encompassing, and all within it must conform to the ruling body, often a dictator.

2."Nothing outside the state". The country must grow and the implied goal of any fascist nation is to rule the world, and have every human submit to the government.

3."Nothing against the state". Any type of questioning of the government is not to be tolerated. If you do not see things our way, you are wrong. If you do not agree with the government, you cannot be allowed to live and taint the minds of the rest of the good citizens.

I would suggest Benito would be very proud .. not only of American Fascism .. but also .. the global fascism as practiced by the World Health Organization ..that has managed to impose HIS ideas of Fascism on the American people and the world .. while maintaining the illusion that America and the World are free of the "tyrannical dictators" that Fascism once relied upon .. now replaced through the collusion of powerful capitalists and governments .. to rule our nation and the world .. as Benito wanted to .. THE PEOPLE SILENCED AND POWERLESS TO DEFEND THEMSELVES AGAINST OUR NEW DICTATORS .. INDUSTRY AND GOVERNMENT .. WHO NOW RULE SUPREME.
