Well, folks, over the last couple of years, the issue of vaccinating children has been front page news all over the net. You will never hear about it in the mainstream press, unless, of course, the flavor of the story is to trash anyone who has any questions about vaccine safety. These inquiring minds are automatically condemned as ignorant “anti-vaxxers” or worse.
As Robert F. Kennedy, Jr, of World Mercury Project, explained it,
“America is one of only two nations in the world that allows pharmaceutical ads on television. Drug companies are the largest advertisers on TV and radio. They spend $3-$5.4 billion annually to saturate the airwaves with 80 advertisements every hour. Anyone who watches network news quickly understands that it has devolved into a vehicle for selling pharmaceuticals. That lucre seems to have neutralized the news divisions at CNN, ABC, NBC and CBS. Fox News alone is uncorrupted, but only because its shameless purpose, from its inception, has been to promote the ascendancy of corporate power. Fox’s former CEO, Roger Ailes, was sympathetic with the cause but he told me that he would have to fire any of his hosts who allowed me on his network to discuss mercury in vaccines or autism if I cost them an advertiser. He said, “Bobby, if I let you on to talk about vaccines, Rupert would be on the phone with me in ten minutes.”
CDC SWEARS THEY HAVE NO EVIDENCE THAT MMR SHOTS CAUSE HARM
Kennedy, as you may recall, is in conversation with President Trump about setting up a Presidential Commission to clean up the swamp at the CDC. Trump believes vaccines cause autism. Armed with the movie VAXXED: From Coverup to Catastrophe, Trump and millions of Americans know that the CDC, as an agency, has been caught in a whopping lie about the safety of MMR shots.
From their own studies showing that these shots were causing damage, and lots of it, particularly to little black boys, agency officials decided to destroy the evidence so they could say, with a straight face, that they had no evidence showing harm. Thus, that is how the swamp at the CDC protects its political agenda to promote more and more vaccines.
What you may recall, also, is that California passed a law a year ago that repealed parents’ rights to decline vaccinations for their children. This set up a firestorm across the nation among people who believe in their constitutional right to be able to decline vaccines on religious or philosophical grounds.
BIG PHARMA’S UNHOLY ALLIANCE WITH YOUR STATE LEGISLATORS
What you may not know is that this year, 134 bills in 35 states bills to restrict, eliminate and/or expand vaccine exemptions are in play at state legislatures. This sudden increase in repealing the right to decline has been prompted by the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), a group considered a “non-profit organization” made up of Conservative state legislators and corporate private sector “partners”. This unholy alliance meets regularly to discuss, plan, write and submit well-financed legislation that is beneficial to corporations. A quick look at the list of members, you can see Big Pharma is the 700-pound gorilla behind ALEC.
This year, eight states introduced bills to make vaccination and exemption rates public so they could be published in the mainstream press in order to shame schools with lower vaccination rates. In states where this type of law already exists, parents are often targeted for community discrimination and bullying for not vaccinating their kids.
Three states introduced bills to force parents attempting to decline vaccinations, where it is still legal to decline, to be subjected to heavy-handed government “education” programs about vaccines. A bill like this was introduced here in Oklahoma this session. We had several legal and/or Constitutional concerns. First was that forcing parents to watch a government educational film regarding vaccinations was discriminatory and unconstitutional under the 14th Amendment.
In short, only those wishing to decline would be subjected to government’s “re-education” process. This forced cooperation is a form of coercion on its own. However, what we also saw was that by forcing parents to not only participate in what would be a government indoctrination program and then sign a paper stating they’d participated, we felt that might open the door for being charged with medical neglect with the potential loss of custody of their children.
Deciding to vaccinate or not vaccinate your children is a very serious matter.
