A Revolution For Vaccine Truth – Washington DC…

By: Elissa Meininger – Health Policy Analyst

 

The anti-vaccination movement is growing so fast it is almost impossible to keep track of everything that is happening.  Social media is NOT the friend of social activists in most ways, but what it DOES provide is the ability to spread information quickly, and thoroughly, no matter how hard FaceBook tries to suppress it – and it does try to do that.

But, no matter how many barriers FaceBook puts up, social activists have figured out how to move right around them, ignoring the brainless advertising, and propaganda delivery, proceeding toward important information delivery.

One of the important activities social activists involved in the anti-vaccine movement have achieved is the outright elimination of racial strife.  

And how was THAT done, you ask?

Los Angeles area resident Michelle Maher Ford, one day, ignoring years of socially perceived racial strife between blacks, whites, etc., picked up the phone and started calling activists in the black community trying to bring attention to the findings of the CDC whistleblower William Thompson, and what he explained to Brian Hooker about how little black boys were three times as likely to be injured by vaccines as other children.  Fearless in her endeavor, Michelle reached EVEN into what some white people see as “the most angry of black activist groups, the Nation of Islam,” ultimately having a cordial meeting of minds with Minister  Louis Farrakhan himself in his home.

And she struck gold…

A Call To Action! Our Veterans Need Us!

By: Elissa Meininger – Health Policy Analyst

“America’s veterans deserve the very best health care because they’ve earned it.”  Jim Ramstad, U.S. Congressman

My husband died eight years ago and I took the opportunity to go on a journey of self-discovery that, for a time, led me to Austin, Texas, and then back home to Oklahoma City.

Within days of returning home, I learned that an old political buddy, Bill Duncan, was in town, doing something interesting.   So who is Bill Duncan, you ask? He’s the fellow my Fifth District US Congressman, Ernest Istook, hired in 1995 to clean up the medical system.

Clean Up?

At the time, I served as head of Ross Perot’s Reform Party Health Committee so this gave me a good reason to pay attention to what was going on with Bill.  Reformers were in the business of finding ways to clean up government. A third of Bill’s job was to make sure the new Office of Complementary and Alternative Medicine at the National Institutes of Health wouldn’t get screwed up.

When the NIH Director attacked it, Bill created the legislation, passed by Senator Tom Harkin, that created the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM). It’s very existence was as welcome as ants at a picnic because our American medical system is based on using drugs, surgery and other high tech (read expensive) modes of treating illness and injury.

Allopathy?  What’s THAT?

Technically, the medical philosophy that our medical establishment practices is called “allopathy”.  Consequently, the CAM department had many enemies, and still does. As an economist by training, Bill’s overall assignment was to make the U.S. healthcare system more effective, more efficient, and less expensive. His doctorate is in political science, economics, and public law, but he also has an MBA from Boston University.

In his program, which he took in Germany, Harvard professors came to Germany and taught the program from Harvard’s books.  This gave him a great basis for understanding the mandate from Rep. Istook. This included reducing regulatory burdens, increasing market availability of affordable health insurance, and driving new and effective treatments and technologies, including ones with no patent, into use.

The fight over proper health care in the US has been around for a VERY long time…

How Big Pharma Runs Our Government…

By Elissa Meininger – Health Policy Analyst

 

While the mainstream media is focusing on the replacement for Obamacare, having a field day trashing Trump, and ignoring the massive corruption at the CDC, they also continue to ignore the longest-running health care crisis in America….. the suppression of REAL HEALTH.

The key agency that blocks REAL HEALTH is the Food and Drug Administration (FDA)…

It is regularly said that The FDA is the wholly-owned subsidiary of Big Pharma.  It has always been that way and, in fact, those of us who have been in the trenches campaigning for real health choice for decades, consider the FDA the deepest and most crooked part of the swamp Trump was elected to clean up.

For openers, the FDA  is wearing too many hats of authority and has been run for the pleasure of Big Pharma, only.  

It has been embroiled in one controversy after another, often of a criminal nature.  When it comes to regulating dietary supplements and related products, it has always come out on the side of protecting Big Pharma’s interests.

While it looks the other way to make sure Big Pharma products have fast approval, the commitment to offer the same benefits to dietary supplements, its attitude is they are “a disincentive for patented drug research” and there is a history of gunpoint raids on doctors offices and confiscation of products that goes back decades. 

The Rise of Tyranny…


Eight years ago, I wrote a book review for a book called “Rise of Tyranny” .  This book covers the history of how all these Federal agencies were created, unconstitutionally, and how the heads of these agencies now assume tyrannical powers outside the authority of Congress.

The book focuses on how the FDA, in particular, has been a captive of Big Pharma just as the CDC has been.  The story is as relevant today as it was then, so I thought I’d re-issue it here on the BolenReport.

REAL Health Care Reform is on its Way – Dr. Tom Price is Secretary of DHHS…

By Elissa Meininger – Health Policy Analyst

 

When I woke up the day after the Presidential election, I could hardly breathe.  I realized that for the first time in my adult life, I could dare hope that we would have REAL health care reform.

During the campaign, Donald Trump had repeatedly said that he thought vaccines caused autism.   For me, US vaccination policy and laws are the most dangerous, most invasive and most oppressive (read un-American) part of our failing medical system.  I’ll have a lot more to say about infectious disease policy in later articles, but for now, I want to focus on the implications of appointing Tom Price, MD, to the office of Secretary of Health and Human Services.

What is SO Important About the American Association of American Physicians (AAPS)?

When Dr. Price, an orthopedic surgeon, was confirmed by the Senate, headlines across America pointed out (gleefully  and insultingly)  that he was a member of some whacko medical group that fell far outside of mainstream medical thinking.  Damn Right!  This odd duck group actually believes some weird things like the idea that the doctor/patient relationship is a private one that government bureaucrats ought not be involved with.

The  AAPS takes not one dime of money from Big Pharma for any reason whatsoever.  That’s subversive, right there.  They can’t be bought and are thus, way out of step with most of the rest of the medical industry.  Even more heretical is that they routinely sue the government any time it looks like it might try to run doctors’ offices or interfere with the patients’ unalienable right to make medical decisions on their own without Hillary’s village horning in.

Now, this story is going to get REALLY interesting…

Whoever Makes Your Medical Decisions Owns You…

The single most important issue in HEALTH CARE REFORM today is NOT how the bill is paid but WHAT WE ARE BUYING.

Opinion By Elissa Meininger – Health Policy Analyst

 

US Health Care Reform?…

In that regard, the Number One, Numero Uno, #1 issue is vaccines.

Unless you have been living in a cave, you must know that there is a “battle royale” going on about how vaccines are the cause of autism, and more.

You will notice I didn’t say “IF.”

If you are still one of the millions of Americans who shudder with fear imagining a world without vaccines and all you see is death and destruction as the result, then this article is meant especially for you.

Know this…

There are four basic opinions about vaccines.

(1) Those who think they are God’s gift to mankind and everyone MUST take them, no exceptions.

(2)  The second group also sees vaccines as miracle drugs but have the odd idea that we have an inherent right to make our own decisions about what we put in our bodies, and that that inherent right extends to the idea that parents are in charge of caring for their children – not some government bureaucrat running a village bypassing parental participation.

(3)  The third group believes the jury is still out on vaccine safety and effectiveness.

(4)  The fourth group, rarely mentioned, are those who aren’t sold on why people should resort to vaccinating at all because there are other time tested and proven ways of staving off epidemics and death from various diseases.

The discussion about vaccinations is so explosive, it is taboo to have a rational discussion in the media about them.

If something happens to hit the airwaves, like comments made by MDs Rand Paul and Ben Carson, who basically said they had issues with the schedule of children’s mandated shots, media commentators reminded their audiences that vaccines had been proven perfectly safe and these two doctors must be misinformed. In fact any discussion in public must start with “I believe in vaccinations, I vaccinated all my kids” just to get any traction at all.

Only Donald Trump has dared to speak his mind.

Oklahoma Has a “PARENTS BILL OF RIGHTS” Law That EVERY State Needs…

Opinion by Elissa Meininger – Health Freedom Action Network

 

When I first stepped foot on Oklahoma soil, too long ago to admit, I found independent and self-reliant people much like Oklahoman Ron Howard depicted in his film “Far and Away.”

Opportunists, adventurers, outlaws, farmers, family people and dreamers, one and all.    Some of these same Oklahoma Founding Fathers still lived in dugouts when 1906 rolled around and the Constitutional Convention to create Oklahoma took place.

The Saturday Evening Post correspondent described that the moment, “…. was not merely the birth of a new state, it was the birth of a new kind of state.”  Post readers were treated to a rousing eyewitness account of the proceedings, starting when “Alfalfa” Bill Murray called the convention to order banging his gavel and yelling, “Delegates will take their seats, loafers and lobbyists will get out!  We will begin by singing that grand old hymn, ‘Nearer, My God, to Thee.”

And so began the great experiment in populist democracy. 

Oklahoma ended up with the longest state constitution in America.  It established a corporation commission to keep big business in check, has a specific provision for homeschooling so that parents can protect their children from “government schools” and the power for voters to repeal any law they don’t like.  They can even change the constitution if they want. The Constitution declared the inherent right for Oklahomans to run their own lives as they see fit and have the right to bear arms, never to be abridged, so that Okies can shoot people to protect their stuff and their lives not to mention using guns for civil order when called upon to do so.
