No More Measles, Lots More Autism: Dan Olmsted on Vaccine Mandates

"An effort spanning two decades has resulted in a global first," CNN reported Thursday. "The Americas have eliminated measles, the World Health Organization said this week. The battle was won through mass vaccination to prevent the viral disease, which can cause severe health problems including pneumonia, blindness, brain swelling and even death."

Well, the battle was mostly won before the battle began, as anyone who's looked at the pre-vaccine wipeout of the disease would know.

From Mark Blaxill and my 2015 book, Vaccines 2.0:
Measles Mortality DO MB

In Vaccines 2.0 we wrote: “Much of the recent publicity about measles reflects a small increase in US cases in the past few years—usually overseas travelers becoming infected and then spreading the illness in small pockets that generate alarmist headlines.

“In the spring of 2014, a news outlet in suburban Washington, under a large banner titled “Health Warning,” reported public health workers “are informing people who were at various locations . . . that they may have been exposed to a person with measles. Northern Virginia area health officials are mounting a coordinated effort to identify people who may have been exposed.”

“The idea that measles is highly infectious is certainly true; the claim that it is a health emergency is not. For generations, measles was considered a rite of passage for children, with little risk of complications and the reward of lifetime immunity."

A blogger at made the same point in June 2014 in a post titled, Measles Shmeasles:

“So far, in 2014 there have been 288 cases of measles, no cases of encephalitis, and no death. In 2013 there were 189 cases of measles, no encephalitis and no death. In 2012 there were 54 cases of measles, no encephalitis, and no death. In 2011, there were 22 cases of measles, and you guessed it . . . no encephalitis, and no death.

“I could go on, but you get the point.

“By and large, measles is unpleasant, not deadly.

“In comparison, the same cannot be said for the MMR vaccine. As of March 1, 2012 there were 842 serious injuries following the MMR vaccine and 56 deaths. Since 1990 there have been more than 6,058 serious adverse events reported to the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS). What’s even more sad is that only 1–10% of cases are actually reported ….”

Honestly. If you’ve seen Vaxxed, you know it does a great job of contrasting the Disney measles hysteria with the blasé attitude of mainstream media and medicine and the CDC and the NIH and HRSA and etcetera to the endless, increasing, debilitating, sometimes lethal autism epidemic and its allied catastrophes.

But of course kids will all be getting the MMR into perpetuity – now with one part that doesn’t work and spawns epidemics post-adolescence that are far more dangerous (mumps); a vaccine for a disease that is usually not serious and is no circulating (measles) but can have serious side effects, and one for which there can be an altruistic argument given the risk of congenital rubella syndrome, but also with serious risks. Put them all together, shake it up and voila -- the autism shot, as Jenny called it.

Kind of like the DPT – diphtheria doesn’t circulate, tetanus is not a serious risk, and certainly not to anyone but the person who might get it, and pertussis, for which we believe there is a case worth discussing.

Not to mention the deadly and disgusting HPV, the useless and dangerous Hep B, the useless and dangerous chickenpox.

This is why parental choice and no mandates are so important, regardless of one’s stance on vaccines overall. Too much autism, too many vaccines with too many side effects – but at least, thank God, no measles.

And our own Secretary of State for Health, Mat Hancock, yesterday said he wasn't ruling out anything including making vaccines compulsory. Nothing's off the table - (except Brexit!)

German parents who don't get their children vaccinated against measles could face FINES
Health minister Jens Spahn is proposing fines for parents of school-age children
Proposal made amid concerns the potentially deadly disease is spreading
Parents who can't prove their children have been vaccinated for measles should have to pay up to 2,500 euros (£2,130)

Superb article from Dan he was light years ahead with his thoughts and research greatly missed. I wonder what he would be writing about today, and what he would have been discovering.His Amish people study, indisputable evidence that vaccines produced autism.From that we can extrapolate they never ever worked or saved a single life from the get go and infact the Chinese knew that if they injected a protein from a bird animal etc into a human that person if they ate that protein became ill or died.That was 2000 years ago since then we have had a cocktail of toxins added to be injected from birth multiple times of course at the baby and mama un-well clinics.

Ohhhh, that is interesting and Bob and John Stone!


That "incidence" graph is nothing of the sort. There is no reliable historical measure of true incidence. What that graph shows is notification rates which are completely unreliable as a proxy for true incidence due to well-characterized but wholly unquantifiable biases. The foremost of these is diagnostic bias: doctors bias their diagnosis using vaccination status, based on their belief that the vaccine works. The CDC tells them to do this. The "drop" in "incidence" is little more than an artefact of the widespread belief that vaccines work. To then use this drop in notifications to "prove" that the vaccine works is completely circular.


"The industry and its proponents hide behind bland assurances that everything is safe, effective, carefully tested etc. but the reality is messy." I would say the reality is dirty, convoluted and caries a filthy stench like dead fish rotting on a beach.

Measles went away a long time ago, and vaccines had zero to do with that.

The only place where measles lives now, is in the media. Every time they need to justify the insanity of a vaccines mandate.

But this is exactly what they are doing now. Thanks to Obama’s Global Health Security Agenda the heat has been turned up everywhere. Make no mistake it started in the White House in September 2014 - the mayhem in California also began shortly after this meeting.

Why is it we never see US Public Health officials badgering public health officials of other nations for not embracing the full US vaccine schedule of vaccines for children .. as they obviously have no problem badgering parents in the USA for doing exactly what those foreign nation public health officials do .. exercising their professional responsibility to give due diligence to ALL VACCINES .. weigh the "BENEFITS OF THE VACCINE" against the "KNOWN RISKS" .. and when the RISKS outweigh the BENEFITS .. they DO NOT REQUIRE THEM FOR CHILDREN IN THEIR COUNTRIES.

How come those "foreign national public health officials who are reluctant to vaccinate children in their countries'' ARE NOT DEMONIZED AS "ANTI-VAXXERS"? Why aren't THEY accused of getting their "anti-vaccine" information from unreliable sources like the inter-net or Jenny McCarthy?

Just curious. Also heard Foxnews resident "health care expert Dr Siegal" being interviewed and asked to comment on cruise ship that has just been quarantined somewhere in the Caribbean sea after a measles outbreak onboard occurred. Dr Siegal stated he did not want to cause UNDUE FEAR of those having measles by overly stating the 'serious complications" that can occur RARELY with measles .. such as .. death. Instead he wanted to calm their fears and told them measles is usually an UNEVENTFUL DISEASE … will resolve itself without serious complications .. so .. just ENJOY the time in quarantine as best as you can avoiding unnecessary contact with unaffected on board.

Odd .. this is the very same "expert' who has done NOTHING BUT SOW FEAR regarding outbreak of measles in USA .. warning all to GET VACCINATED .. because some people DIE from complications of the disease.
