Joe Lieberman Calls Measles Threat to National Security and He's Right

Betty Wilma measlesThe fear mongering is way out of control, dear readers.  From an article by former Senator Joe Lieberman in USA Today:

A devastating infectious disease pandemic could kill more people than nuclear war. Just 100 years ago, the Spanish flu killed 50 to 100 million people. Life-threatening diseases continue to place us at great risk. Ten years ago, it was H1N1 influenza. Today, it is the measles.

Measles is NOT Ebola. Measles in the United States of America, with sanitation, clean water (sorry Flint, MI) and access to ice cream, calamine lotion and Archie comic books is NOT DEADLY.  A failed MMR vaccine with no ability to separate out the Measles from the Mumps from the Rubella is possibly a threat to national security, as evidenced by a kajillion dollar Navy ship that has been under quarantine as their vaccinated once, vaccination twice, vaccinated thrice seamen and women continue to come down with the Mumps. A stalled Navy ship is a possible threat to national security.

Lieberman says that the current epidemic" of measles is wasting precious funds. Well, yes, he's right. There is no reason to panic and pay through the nose for PR campaigns by public health agencies, cities, states that are really just advertisements for MERCK to make more money on a product that is already mandated and liability free. KACHING. Sign me up for that and then Age of Autism will be typing through silk, hardy har har.

Last week I was at JFK airport and there, on the tram to the parking lot, were THREE, not one but THREE lit signs about MEASLES and telling readers to go get vaccinated.  What do you think that cost?

Measles JFK
Obesity is a threat to national security. Mental illness is a threat to national security. Measles is not a threat to national security and the hyperbole is simply beyond comprehension. As Americans begin to get those MMR boosters; older kids, teens, young adults, adults, seniors, the adverse reactions will start to pile up.  And eyes that are now firmly shut tight to avoid seeing the monster of measles will begin to open. Little by little the pharma/public health/politician triumvirate will drop its mask of paternalistic safety.

Shell Tzorfas,

I have rock-solid references (other than Dr. Karen Starko's brilliant study disclosing extremely high-dosing of newly marketed aspirin quickly causing disintegration of lung tissue, thence quick death).

Among my refs are US Army Surgeon General Annual Reports citing mass mandatory vaccinations of all our service personnel with an array of extremely toxic concoctions, Mayo Clinic papers citing new "experimental" millions of "anti-flu" vaccine doses shipped to Chicago and around the Midwest, New York City Health Dept reports of their concocting 100,000's of new experimental "anti-flu" vaccines for the the NYC area and other East Coast areas. The whole of the U.S. was in a panic, and many millions of civilians of all ages took the (very toxic) new vaccines; this resolves the so-called mystery of twenty-year olds dying "from the flu" as before this age group was barely touched in prior "flu" episodes as they (along with the military inductees) naively also got vaccinated.

As I am away from my reference papers for the next week or so, could you please send me your email contact, and I will retrieve exact notations and
then get back to you. Thank you for your contributions; my email address is: Please send me yours.

Sincerely, David M Burd.

I have just read the article on Measles. I had Measles before i was ten years old, i am now almost eighty
years old.
I well remember being poorly, there were no vaccinations in those days mother kept my brother and
myself in the house all of the time. In those days your parents kept children in the house, the curtains
were drawn to to prevent any daylight and sun shine getting in as this would make things worse.
Inside it was very gloomy, almost dark and also very boring as we could not do anything . This would have lasted for one or two weeks the n illness had finished.
Yours faithfully .
P. Thompson


Shell Tsorfas-- A great book "The Homeopathic Treatment of Influenza" goes into great detail the Spanish Flu which did not originate in Spain. There was a lengthy discussion on AOA some months back. But a simple answer is homeopathic remedies work and taking aspirin killed you.

There`s this article Whale Shel

As has been stated before, all medical and non-medical authorities on vaccination agree that vaccines are designed to cause a mild case of the diseases they are supposed to prevent. But they also know and admit that there is no way whatsoever to predict whether the case will be mild or severe - even deadly. With this much uncertainty in dealing with the very lives of people, it is very unscientific and extremely dangerous to use such a questionable procedure as vaccination.

I read that the Spanish Flu deaths of nearly a century ago was the result of those people getting vaccines. Can someone provide the info?


My 89 year old mother said they are all dying from measles up in New York. I said," Dying?" "Yeah," she said, "A bunched died of measles up in New York, the news said so."

Well that is how she understood it, and that is the way it was reported.

I asked her, who did she know died of the measles when she taught the second grade; with 40 per room and the measles and rubella was circulating at the same time.

Well, she said some boy over around Sweetwater (that is kind of a catch all place when you are trying to think of a off beaten place around here). She knows better, and still.

John Stone,

I quite agree. This whole exploitation of the war metaphor has done great harm to the cause of liberty.

Politicians believe that they have carte blanche to do whatever they want during a shooting war, and they like that type of power.

So they call their other schemes wars in order to browbeat people into going along with them, or at least tolerating them. So we have the War on Drugs, the War on Microbes, and so forth, all of which end up becoming a war on the people.

I think it was FDR who set this precedent for the U.S., when he analogized the Great Depression to a national emergency akin to a war. At that point, our economic freedom, already under attack, began to decline more rapidly.


Maybe Lieberman is reading NYT: "In reporting on measles outbreaks, the mainstream corporate media routinely claim that for every 1,000 children infected, one will die from the virus. Their source for this claim is US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The trouble is, though, that it’s a lie.

Take the New York Times. On February 22, America’s newspaper of record reported that measles 'kills one or two children out of every 1,000 who get it, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.' On April 3, the Times again claimed that in the US, 'measles kills about one in every 1,000 victims.'

....The second point to make is that the numbers presented to us in this instance by the Times give us a very different measles death rate. Let’s do the math. There were about 500 deaths per four million cases of measles infection. That’s not 1 death, but about 0.1 deaths per 1,000 cases. It’s one death per 10,000 cases."

@ managing editor & David

I would think the fact that 54% of today's children suffer neurological/physical childhood development problems including ADD, ADHD .. is a bigger long term threat to our national security than obesity?

In my own small family .. I have three of "draft age" 18 & over … one with asthma .. one with peanut allergies .. one with autism … and I suspect none of the three would ever qualify to serve in our military forces?

Managing Editor

Hi, David - I follow your line of thinking too. I am talking about the physical attributes of manning (womanning?) an army. Epipens on the battlefield next to bayonets.... OK, probably not bayonets any longer. But you see what I mean. XOX KIM

I suppose that the two of us see the U.S. military in a different light.

I don't see the U.S. wars (and other actions) that have taken place during my lifetime as having anything to do with protecting national security. I believe that they are causing a great deal of turmoil around the world and that they are decreasing our own national security, by unnecessarily creating enemies.

If our military really did confine its actions to protecting our country, then I would be inclined to agree.

John Stone


I am sure you are familiar with the remark of Dr Samuel Johnson (7 April 1775): “Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel”. Another Johnson, Senator Hiram Johnson, also notably remarked in 1917, “When was comes the first casualty is truth”. One of the last and least helpful acts of President Obama in office was to declare global war on infectious disease:

Never mind the collateral damage, never mind the loss of basic human freedoms there is war on - a new kind of war - but it was only silently declared. Equally, there were no new global factors that occasioned President Obama’s war, which is already destabilising nations across Europe.

Managing Editor for David

Hi, David. I think obesity and mental illness are a threat to our national security. Can we build and maintain a strong, capable military with men and women who can't pass a fitness test or mental preparedness test?


David Weiner

"Obesity is a threat to national security. Mental illness is a threat to national security. Measles is not a threat to national security and the hyperbole is simply beyond comprehension."

Are obesity and mental illness serious concerns? Yes

Are they threats to national security? No

Politicians and pundits like to use the phrase "threat to national security" as rationalizations for taking draconian measures, as they are now doing with respect to the so-called measles epidemic.

Phrases like this condition people to accept the State taking measures to (allegedly) mitigate such threats, when there is not in fact any threat to national security nor are the actions being taken in any way helpful to the situation at hand.

This is the way constitutional limitations are circumvented, since most people support State action when national security is supposedly threatened. The acceptance of phrases such as these are the ticket to tyranny and unlimited government.


MMR is a threat to national security. Boosters beyond the 2nd dose do not work. After the first two wane, then what?

Sad to see that Lieberman is such a fool. Is dementia preventing him from connecting the dots back to his own childhood when our country did just fine with an average of 4 million measles cases per year? What is wrong with him?

Idiot leaders are a threat to national security.

Bob Moffit

Lieberman: A devastating infectious disease pandemic could kill more people than nuclear war. Just 100 years ago, the Spanish flu killed 50 to 100 million people. Life-threatening diseases continue to place us at great risk. Ten years ago, it was H1N1 influenza. Today, it is the measles."

Really? Comparing measles with a pandemic disease that could kill more people than nuclear war, Spanish Flu, H1N1 influenza? If the threat of measles is SO REAL .. why don't our elected representatives, Local, State, Federal .. all public health bureaucracies CDC, FDA, HHS, IOM, on and on .. demand that MERCK provide a SINGLE MEASLES VACCINE instead of continuing to allow MERCK to produce only the MMR .. the 3 in 1 shot that is "cost effective and convenient for all" except for PARENTS AND THEIR PRECIOUS CHILDREN??

Common sense begs the question: Why aren't parents given the CHOICE to vaccinate their child with only a MEASLES VACCINE … instead of the more dangerous combined 3 in 1 MMR?

Consider .. according to the CDC website .. here is THEIR list of adverse reactions to MMR vaccination ..

MEASLES: "fever, rash, cough, runny nose, red watery eyes. …. COMPLICATIONS CAN INCLUDE ear infection, diarrhea, pneumonia, brain damage and, rarely, death".

MUMPS: "fever, headache, muscle aches, tiredness, loss of appetite, swollen salivary glands … COMPLICATIONS CAN INCLUDE swelling of the testicles or ovaries, deafness, inflammation of the brain and/or tissue covering the brain and spinal cord (encephalitis/meningitis) and, rarely, death".

RUEBELLA: "fever, sore throat, rash, headache, and red, itchy eyes. If a woman gets rubella while she is pregnant, she could have a miscarriage or her baby could be born with serious birth defects".

One need not be the proverbial 'rocket scientist' to see the RISKS TO CHILDREN are far greater when all three are combined in one MMR vaccine. That MERCK continues to provide ONLY the MMR is clear evidence that our elected representatives and public health bureaucracies don't give a damn about doing what is best for OUR CHILDREN .. their only concern is to do what is best for MERCK.
