Action Alert: CA Senator Schiff Attacking Internet Free Speech
TAKE ACTION HERE!
From Autism Action Network:
Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA 28), the member of Congress who wrote to the heads of Google and Facebook calling for the censorship of “medically inaccurate information about vaccines (that) surface on the websites where many Americans get their information,” has reintroduced a House Resolution making the claim, that, “there is no credible evidence demonstrating that vaccines cause life-threatening or disabling diseases in healthy children or adults;” (a claim repeated in the letters to Google and Facebook.) Schiff’s House Resolution (H. Res. 179), “Recognizing the importance of vaccinations and immunizations in the United States” was introduced last Wednesday, the same day as the “Vaccines Save Lives” US Senate hearing.
Schiff is willfully ignorant of the most basic facts about vaccines and vaccine policy. Every package insert for every vaccine in America contains information about the possible injuries the Federal government admits could occur to healthy adults and children. Schiff seems to be unaware of the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, the "vaccine court," that considers thousands of cases of vaccine injury every year and has paid out more than $4 billion in damages. One also has to wonder if Schiff is aware that the vaccine industry and pediatricians demanded, and received, complete liability protection from any injury caused by a vaccine?
Please click on the Take Action Link to send a message to your member of the House asking him or her to oppose this Resolution and asking them if they agree with the censorship of online discussion of vaccines and vaccine policy. Before you do that, if you value the news, information and advocacy made available to you by the Autism Action Network, please make it possible for us to continue in our work by donating to here:
Oddly enough, Schiff, perhaps America’s leading advocate for online censorship, was a founder, along with then member of the House Mike Pence, of the Congressional Caucus for Freedom of the Press. Schiff also chairs the House Intelligence Committee, which held a hearing on Feb. 26. on “The Rise of Authoritarianism.” “The world has witnessed the steady ascendance of authoritarian leaders and illiberal governments in recent years, and the existential challenges these regimes and their underlying ideologies pose to liberal democracies demand our full attention,” Schiff said in a statement describing the hearing. The House has much more important things to do than waste time on factually incorrect resolutions drafted by a willfully ignorant hypocritical proponent of censorship.
House Resolutions, if passed, do not go to the Senate or the President for consideration and adoption as a law. They are statements of the consensus understanding and preferred policy positions of the members of the House of Representatives. Nonetheless, House Resolution 179 enshrines as preferred US House of Representatives policy demonstrably incorrect assertions that can and will be easily refuted by those who are better informed than Schiff, and who are aware and concerned about the growing number of documented vaccine injuries in the United States.
Please share this message with friends and family, and please post to social networks (while we can.)
Sorry, should add that the context of Trump's petition (and fund-raising pitch) is about "Russian collusion."

Maybe this could be interesting. How often does a president bother to call on a congressman to resign for saying something false?

@cia, @MARK WAX: In yesterday's edition of the NYT, most of the letters to the editor were about vaccines, in response to various articles published between March 6 and March 10. Surprisingly, of the 5 vaccine-related letters, two (40%) were antivax! This feels like progress!

Here's a brilliant piece of rebuttal on Danish study by JB Handley again. Must read for every parent.

The college admissions cheating scandal seems to be rather interesting, once again, one has to simply follow the money.
Perhaps Americans will someday believe that the vaccine stories of millions of other Americans, once again, simply follow the billions and billions of dollars.

I think Jake Crosby joined the dots well and highlighted the power of pharma regardless of Party or persona whatever psycho they want in a position they have the power..still.
A blog by vaccine troll David Gorski was shared with Novartis’ CEO by then-Trump lawyer Michael Cohen. According to a Senate minority report, Cohen was trying to sell White House access to his then-client Novartis.

Burning of the books ? (What is next ?)
A crime if you speak ill of vaccine ?
Amazon removes books promoting autism cures and vaccine misinformation
The titles suggested pseudoscientific methods such as ingesting and bathing in a potentially toxic form of bleach and taking medication meant to treat arsenic and lead poisoning.

At the risk of diluting our message about vaccine safety and the lack of support for the victims, I think we would do well to place a permanent box on the right-hand side if this home webpage, directing the casual visitor to Professor David Healy’s website to point out that this Malleus Maleficarum orchestrated by the unholy trinity of Pharma/Politics/Mainstream Mass Media affects ALL aspects of health-care. At the moment most of the public are not joining up the dots and seeing the bigger picture.
A link to just some videos might be more attractive and more likely to be watched and thought about, such as:
and of course:
and perhaps a Del Bigtree’s Livewire episode featuring a extract from Plolkin’s 9 hour grilling.
and the scale of Pharmaceutical fraud in chart form just to ram home the point that fines are seen by Pharma as just small business overhead cost compared to their profits.
With a comment at the top of the box along the lines of – Medical Safety isn’t just about vaccines.
We have an easier chance by standing united with others who want safer healthcare.
It is most probable that casual undecided visitors have more than one relative that has had problems with prescribed medications but haven’t realized these were due to the same corrupted system. This extra inclusion on this site might be all the need to decide one way or another on where they stand on the vaccination safety issue. Joining up dots is hard work – we need to help the ‘undecided’ by doing it for them. So they can more easily see that Science is good but the prostitution of science is bad.
We have to be realistic. After all these year of trying to untie the Gordian Knot without any success- we now have to join forces and cut it.

Crimes against humanity. Its not even limited to Vaccines. GMO foods, glyphosate, 5G, gene edited live stock, all rolling ahead without adequate or any independent safety studies. All regulated by departments where there is a revolving door with industry and rampant conflict of interest.
Someone asked why the Republicans dont do anything as if this if this is a partisan issue. Pro industry politics jeopardizing health is a bipartisan joint effort

So have vaccines now become the new determiner of the master race? If you handle them you're "healthy" (even though you're now laden with adjuvant loaded immune cells that could set something "unrelated" off in the future). If not, oh well... Hurry on your defective way, dump your blood, sweat, and tears into pharma's coffers (ha, ha and you think vitamin C might have saved you instead, no, we don't even need to try that to know that we don't want to try that, now you need half a dozen drugs, so obviously you'd have been a goner without that disabling vaccine) and be grateful you're still alive and have vaccine "herd immunity" around you, oh wait, but you've got to take some more (vaccines) anyway because you're still breathing and we in the worshipped medical system have determined you can tolerate a few more...?

US Cardinal Raymond Burke, former prefect of the Apostolic Signatura, will deliver the opening and concluding address at the March 13 event.
The conference has also received the endorsement of Bishop Athanasius Schneider, who in a letter to conference organizers called the use of aborted fetuses in vaccine research a “new barbarity of biological cannibalism.”
ROME, March 11, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — Should parents have the right to exercise conscientious objection in order to prevent their children from being inoculated with vaccines produced from aborted fetal cell lines? And what does science tell us about these vaccines?
Scientists, ecclesiastics, activists and parents will gather at a Rome conference on March 13 to explore the history, science and politics surrounding the use of aborted fetuses in vaccines given to children around the world.
The association organizing the event is called Renovatio 21. The conference will take place at 3:30pm at the Casa Bonus Pastor in Rome and will be themed: “Faith, Science and Conscience: using aborted fetuses for pharmaceutical production.”
LifeSite spoke with one of the founders of Renovatio 21, Cristiano Lugli, ahead of the event.
He pointed out that the use of aborted fetuses in vaccine research has been confirmed by one of its own great pioneers, Dr. Stanley Plotkin, a doctor and consultant of Sanofi-Pasteur.
In a shocking courtroom interrogation in July 2018, Plotkin said that 76 aborted fetuses were used in one study alone. During the interrogation, Plotkin, a self-professed atheist who admitted to “taking issue with religious beliefs,” also said he would be “glad” to go to hell for having use “aborted tissues” in vaccines.

Rep. Adam Shill - I'm in his district. I swear I voted against him. It's time for him to be recalled.

I don't understand why Republican Senators and Congressional Representatives aren't speaking out against this. Has Fox News spoken out? Why hasn't Trump weighed in? The Senate is still under Republican control. Can't they hold hearings as well?
Another thing I was wondering about...I'm sure the 500 parents who came to testify at the hearing also contacted their Congresspeople about being shut out. I'd be curious to know what the response was.

It's been some years now since the Democratic Party, the NY Times, and the Washington Post (et al) went to the dark side. I think we need to accept that, consider our options, move on, and not expect any interest in truth, health, and justice from these sources.

that the Democratic party hasn't pulled back his throttle is an enormous shame, that colors the election with quiet acceptance of muzzling mothers and hampering of knowledge being shared.

As in the imminent of EU copyright reform directive 'Freedom of the Press' now probably means something different from 'Freedom of Speech': indeed is perhaps the opposite. In means global corporatism setting an agenda through their lackeys, and obstructing citizens from having their say.
No irony in Schiff promoting the 'Freedom of the Press': it is a false flag enterprise. It enshrines the sacred rights of the powerful to bully and lie.

From what I heard, Russia does not use mercury in vaccines. Believe me, they have many other problems in health care.
Posted by: elaine dow | March 12, 2019 at 08:47 AM
The NY Times is advocating both censorship and practicing it. They "removed" my comments and those of others after having posted them earlier. The only "objectionable" information was that they cited actual Government data and scientific study that did not support mandatory vaccination.
Imagine. The NY Times, protector of first amendment rights. Government shills.
Russia without the vodka.

Rep Schiff's call for censorship of any information regarding vaccine concerns was accompanied by a Foxnews "breaking news' headline report … repeated over three days … claimed the same RUSSIAN bots and trolls that "attacked our country" during the last Presidential election … are now heavily engaged in sowing discord and distrust of vaccines by using various internet sources .. such as .. Facebook and twitter .. to name just two.
Odd this item about RUSSIAN efforts to sow discord and distrust regarding vaccines did not gain .. outside of Foxnews .. much national attention. Wonder why not .. "censoring Russian bots and trolls" ,, while at the same time "censoring all information regarding vaccines" … sounds like something the vaccine industry would fully support.
