The pharmaceutical industry is on a full-frontal attack against everyone’s freedom of choice, and our freedom to even see information that might enable us to make a choice. They’ve moved to silence all vaccine dissent, make vaccination mandatory, and demonise anyone who chooses another way. This is an assault on democracy and health.
The problem with the vaccine industry is that they have this warm and cuddly front, and billions are spent in sales and marketing to make you believe that they’re reliable, respectable and ethical corporations. Vaccines and drugs prevent and cure disease, don’t they? Whereas, in fact, the industry is just good at seduction. If you’re wise and informed, you’ll know that actions speak louder than words, and ‘by their fruits shall ye know them’.
The Battle Lines Have Been Drawn
First it was the print media. Now TV and radio are repeating untruths about vaccine science and ‘anti-vaxxers’. Organisations, official bodies and even governments, are wanting to legislate to remove information about vaccine dangers from social media. The mainstream media appears now to refuse to publish anything that questions vaccines, so that avenue for sharing the actual truth is blocked. This is on top of moves in recent years to put an end to or discredit complementary therapies and remove our freedom of choice in that arena, too. Looking at it all, it seems inevitable that mandatory vaccination is on the way.
They’ve already ostensibly introduced mandatory vaccines for dogs by forcing breeders to register and vaccinate, and boarding establishments to demand vaccine proof – for shots that frequently aren’t needed.
In fact, they’ve already vaccinated people at gunpoint around the world, punished and imprisoned parents who don’t vaccinate, and they’ve tried to exclude unvaccinated children from public places in America. Thankfully, parents have recently challenged this legally and won – but the bullying tactics haven’t stopped.
What’s happening seems – to me at least – to be so extreme that it even came to me that World War III might be on its way. Otherwise, how can they possibly justify what they’re doing?
If you’ve read Tip of the Needle (https://www.catherineodriscoll.com/tip-of-the-needle.html), you’ll already know that the vaccine industry and governments are closely aligned due to biological warfare, and hence in partnership with one-another. They are working together to achieve their goals and, I contend, against the people.
And what are we? We are sheep who must do as we’re told, it seems, whilst being hoodwinked about the promised benefits and potential adverse effects of vaccines.
How do you protect your right to choose against overbearing power?
It seems to me that everything boils down to people in the end. So maybe, if we understand people, we can understand how to protect ourselves, our children, and our animal friends. After reading an excellent book about manipulative people, and after much thought, I found a way to say what I think I need to say about current developments in the vaccine field, whilst offering a ray of hope – or a suit of armour at least.
What you don’t know can hurt you and, conversely, what you do know can inform and protect you.
Whilst I’m drawing upon what is known about human psychology relating to aggressive, manipulative people, and describe the tactics used by character-disordered people who want to win at any cost, this information also applies to the powerful pharmaceutical and vaccine industries, because they’re made up of people. If we understand their tactics and share what we understand, then perhaps we can help others, and ultimately all of us, to resist such manipulation and discern the truth amidst the lies. After looking at the tactics of propaganda, I’ll also give examples of how this is being done in the vaccine field.
So … from the book, In Sheep’s Clothing by George Simon Jr, PhD:
The most fundamental rule of human engagement is that the aggressor sets the rules. This is because once attacked, weakened, or emotionally on the run, the victim of aggression is always scrambling to establish a more favourable balance of power.
To guard against victimisation, you must: be free of potentially harmful misconceptions about human nature and behaviour; know how to correctly assess the character of others; have high self-awareness and know your vulnerability to manipulation; recognise and correctly label the tactics of manipulation and respond to them appropriately; and avoid fighting losing battles. Observing these guidelines will help anyone to maintain a position of power and strength in interpersonal relationships [and corporations are run by people], regardless of the power tactics an aggressive or covertly aggressive person might use.
The Truth, the Whole Truth, and Nothing But The Truth
In the book, In Sheep’s Clothing, George Simon describes how aggressive people just want to win, and will do and say anything to win. He describes them collectively as ‘disturbed characters’. Others in psychiatric and psychology fields call them narcissists, sociopaths and psychopaths, all of which are considered to be, and labelled as, personality disorders.
These are the techniques concerned parents and pet owners are being subjected to by the vaccine industry and its cohorts. Study them, memorise them, and don’t be fooled by them:
Lying is a hallmark behaviour of manipulative and aggressive people who want to win at all costs, and they’re prone to lie in subtle, covert ways. “Someone was well aware of the many ways there are to lie,” Simon says, “when they suggested that court oaths charge a person to tell ‘the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth”.
Manipulators and other disturbed characters have refined lying to nearly an art form.
“Lying by omission is a very subtle form of lying that manipulators use. So is lying by distortion. Manipulators will withhold a significant amount of the truth from you or distort essential elements of the truth to keep you in the dark.
“One of the most subtle forms of distortion is being deliberately vague. They will carefully craft their stories so that you form the impression that you’ve been given information but leave out essential details that would have otherwise made it possible for you to know the larger truth.
They lie to us by omission; they deny the harm they’ve caused unless (or even when) cornered with the truth, and they distort the truth by being deliberately vague. They also evade the truth. Evasion is when they give rambling, irrelevant responses to a direct question or otherwise try to skirt around an issue.
I’ve seen many evasive letters from vaccine companies who want to wriggle out of the fact that they’ve harmed another dog. One person who used to work for one of the vaccine manufacturers, before horror made him walk away, told me that long rambling letters which say nothing at all are, in fact, company policy.
George Simon explains other tactics used by people who are seeking to manipulate you in order to gain advantage over you. He describes selective inattention – where aggressors actively ignore the data, warnings, pleas or wishes of others and, in general, refuse to pay attention to everything or anything that might distract them from pursuing their agenda. For example, the corporate-sponsored RCVS and its anti-choice campaigners selectively ignore or deny any peer-reviewed research that suggests that alternative therapies might work.
There’s also selective attention, which means focusing on what you want to focus on, rather than what others want you to focus on, such as ‘vaccines save lives’, whilst ignoring, denying or minimising the fact that they also take lives. This is, according to Simon, a way of avoiding responsibility. The vaccine industry has even had its responsibility-avoidance enshrined in law through government-indemnified vaccine damage compensation schemes – which limit the amounts awarded to beleaguered and grieving parents!
Now the vaccine industry has taken selective inattention one very dangerous and undemocratic step further, by trying to get the mainstream media, social media and whole governments to censor dissenting views.
This essentially means that they can’t beat us by logic, science or civilized debate. They can’t even resort to the law and sue us because they know we’re speaking the truth. And because we’ve been so successful at getting the truth out there, they have taken tyrannical and despotic measures to silence us.
And then there’s covert intimidation. Like drug companies writing threatening letters to CHC or Facebook groups whose members claim that a certain drug or vaccine has killed or harmed their dogs. Or the vaccine and pet food industry bods who followed me around to lectures in the 90s and listened blatantly and menacingly into private conversations I was having; or the vets who have shouted at me in gangs during lectures (intimidation that wasn’t all that covert!). Or the academics and researchers who are hounded out of their jobs and even die in suspicious circumstances when they stand up and speak the truth – also detailed in Tip of the Needle.
Guilt tripping is another tactic. Human vaccine companies are masters at this, even manipulating through misinformation so that government agencies guilt-trip and intimidate parents who choose not to vaccinate. It’s their fault there’s another outbreak, they say, whilst totally ignoring the actual facts of the case (which will be covered later).
Character-disordered people: narcissists, sociopaths and psychopaths, don’t have very much in the way of conscience. They are unaccountable. They never admit to being wrong. But they know that others do have a conscience, and they play on it, keeping them in a self-doubting, anxious and submissive position. This is why dog owners read the science, look at the ‘don’t over-vaccinate’ messages of bodies such as the WSAVA, listen to their over-vaccinating vets, and still go through agonies of choice. It’s also why the media, spoon-fed by Big Pharma, is guilt-tripping and blaming the unvaccinated for what is – when you look into it – vaccine failure.
When manipulators use denial as a form of deception, they refuse to admit that they’ve done something harmful or hurtful when they clearly have. Frequently, they push the blame outwards and pin it on their victims.
Manipulators also like to shame people. “This is the technique of using subtle sarcasm and put-downs as a means of increasing fear and self-doubt in others. It’s an effective way to foster a continued sense of personal inadequacy in the weaker party, thereby allowing an aggressor to maintain a position of dominance.”
Manipulators play the victim, too. One minute they’re calling you names, putting you down, telling everyone you have mental health issues or can’t take criticism or a joke, selling you vaccines you don’t need, or otherwise manipulating or bullying you, and you eventually stand up for yourself … and they go whimpering off to tell everyone how nasty you’ve been to them!
Vilifying the victim is often used in conjunction with the playing the victim tactic. This is where the aggressor makes it appear that he’s only defending himself against aggression on the part of the victim (i.e., we’re censoring anti-vaxx information on social media because they’re telling lies about us …). This is intended to put us on the defensive whilst also shutting us up. It’s also the inference that, “so what if your kid/dog died, you’re a pseudo-scientist”.
Seduction is a central ruse used by personality-disordered individuals and corporations. In the corporate world it’s sub-categorised as public relations, advertising, sponsorship and grants.
Covert-aggressive personalities are extremely adept at charming, praising, flattering or overtly supporting others in order to get them to lower their defences and surrender their trust and loyalty. Appearing to value and approve of others can be a manipulator’s ticket to incredible power over others. That’s why, if you’re being gossiped about by a narcissist, sociopath or psychopath, you don’t really have a chance. Everyone believes the seductive, charming person … until the narc turns on the current batch of groupies, that is. Personality disordered individuals go through a lot of people; they leave a long trail of bodies behind them.
I would assert that the pharmaceutical industry, with its research grants and bursaries and speaker fees and sales jamborees, has got the veterinary profession well under its seductive control. Add intimidation and aggression towards vets, doctors and academics – anyone who dares to speak out – then it’s plain to see that the world is ruled by one Big Sick, Personality Disordered, Entity.
Fake News Claiming Fake News
The “bash the victims” campaign is so all-encompassing that they’ve co-opted the input of practically everyone that’s amenable to control, or who’s part of the power elite. Personality disordered people – power-lovers – like ganging up on the opposition.
The first example here is that the World Health Organization and global partners met in March to plan global vaccination policy. The stakeholders at the meeting included “representatives from academia, global immunization and broader health partnerships, Civil Society Organizations (CSOs), donor agencies, Ministries of Health, industry, private sector, research institutes, and multilateral organizations.”
They talked about their successes and challenges. “Added to these challenges in immunization coverage is the growth of ‘vaccine hesitancy’ across regions but particularly in North America and Europe, which the background document attributes in part to the role of social media in spreading mis-information,” the document said.
Kate Gilmore, deputy high commissioner for human rights at the United Nations, said at the meeting, “There is no such thing as a right to refuse vaccines when the consequences of doing so is to be borne by others and undermine the rights of others to health, as recognised in the International Human Rights Framework.”
Blimey, that’s another tactic: calling something the exact opposite of what it is. The deputy high commissioner for human rights is talking about removing our human rights on the basis of protecting human rights?
So they’re talking about mandatory vaccination. To achieve this, they are also constructively lying. ‘Constructively’ means that they’re lying ‘in a way that is not obvious or explicitly stated’, for example, in law: ‘this non-disclosure was said to be constructively tantamount to fraud’. (Oxford Dictionaries Bing Translator).
The lie is that unvaccinated people are the ones who pose a risk to vaccinated people. The truth is that unvaccinated people pose less of a risk to the unvaccinated than the vaccinated pose to everyone. I’ll explain why soon.
Tip of the Needle addresses the lies, greed and criminality surrounding vaccines, looking at the immune-mediated illnesses, the brain damage, the cancer and leukaemia caused by vaccines … the chronic ill health and the deaths associated with vaccines … as well as the evidence to show that vaccines don’t even work very well, and certainly don’t deserve all of the credit they’re given. It looks at the financial gains enjoyed by purveyors of vaccines: the individuals, corporations, ‘charities’, academic establishments, professional bodies, and governments which financially profit from vaccines. And it covers world over-population concerns and people like Bill Gates wanting to reduce the world’s population.
But the current developments are almost unbelievable if we’re living in a civilized society.
Tory Government Gets Involved in Suppressing The Truth
During March, while we were all worrying about Brexit or getting bored with Brexit, Health Minister Matt Hancock took a swipe at fake news, misinformation, and lies … from ‘anti-vaxxers’. He was interviewed on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, and I nearly spat my coffee out when I heard what he had to say:
“We are looking at legislating for the duty of care that social media companies in particular have towards the people on their sites – this is an important part of that duty of care alongside all the other things that social media companies need to do, like tackling material that promotes suicide and self-harm and, of course, terrorism.”
Sounds reasonable, doesn’t it – except that he also included ‘anti-vaxxers’ in the list of undesirables. BBC news online reported on Mr Hancock’s segment on Radio 4, under the heading, “Minister targets anti-vaccination websites”.
They’re targeting social media AND taking websites down to stop us sharing information about vaccine dangers – and likening us to self-harm promoters and terrorists?
The on-line report stated:
“He said the government is working with internet companies to identify misleading material on jabs, including Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR). Artificial intelligence programmes could root out bad science. MMR vaccine uptake rates are declining in many countries.
“The reason is not clear. Rates dipped in the 1990s following publication of a report linking MMR to autism, but partly recovered after that research was discredited and disproved. However, the volume of anti-vaccine sentiment on social media has been swelling in recent years, sparking concern that it is having a negative impact.
“Measles is highly infectious and can cause serious health complications, including damaging the lungs and brain. There were more than 82,500 cases in Europe in 2018 – the highest number in a decade and three times the total reported in 2017. Health chiefs in Greater Manchester reported a sharp increase in measles cases between January and March 2019, the majority in unvaccinated children. In England, the proportion of children receiving both doses of the MMR jab by their fifth birthday has fallen over the last four years to 87.2%. This is below the 95% said to provide ‘herd immunity’, the level considered by experts to protect a population from a disease.”
There are just loads of factually inaccurate, information-deficient, statements in the above, many of which are handsomely debunked in Tip of the Needle, with copious scientific references. For example, they’re forever wheeling out the ‘Dr Andrew Wakefield is a discredited charlatan’ lie when, it’s widely known in Vaccine Truth circles that Dr Wakefield was set up by GSK, the makers of MMR, with the help of the Murdochs and the British government. The person they chose to be a Terrible Warning was discredited by a web of lies aimed at protecting vaccine sales. And we’ll be addressing measles vaccine science later.
You may be interested to know that another scientist has recently gone public and is receiving similar treatment. The Sunday Times reported on the 7th April that funding had been halted for Professor Chris Exley, who links vaccines to autism. : “A controversial British academic who claims childhood vaccines can cause autism has been blocked from raising research funds after protests by other scientists.
“Professor Chris Exley, of Keele University, infuriated health experts by telling parents the aluminium in vaccines given to babies to protect them from diseases such as whooping cough, and in the human papillomavirus vaccine given to teenagers, may cause ‘severe and disabling’ autism.” God bless that man. In trouble for sharing science.
Meanwhile, a piece in the Telegraph came with the heading: “Facebook and Instagram could be hit by new laws if they do not do enough to stamp out anti-vaccine messages.”
Blimey, Big Pharma is so powerful that it has the power to make our democratically elected government enact laws that are ostensibly against the people.
Facebook, Pinterest, YouTube and Amazon, and probably everyone eventually, are censoring vaccine information, or being ‘persuaded’ to censor vaccine information, and the Establishment is calling it a good thing. It’s likely that many of them have their arms up their backs in this when you consider, for example, that YouTube and other internet platforms rely on advertising revenue, and that revenue is based on how many views a particular item attracts.
According to the London research firm, Moonshot CVE, “less than 20 YouTube channels pushing anti-vaccination theories built an audience of more than 170 million people over a decade”. That’s a lot of revenue they’ll be kissing goodbye to.
Meanwhile, WDDTY reported:
“The clampdown on ‘anti-vaxxing’ stories on social media is producing one big winner: Big Pharma. Revenues from vaccines will enjoy ‘an overwhelming hike’ in the next few years, say industry watchers. They’re expecting a hike in revenues by 2025, with one saying that revenues for all vaccines will increase to $57.5bn compared to just $33.7bn last year.” Government backing was credited – in vaccine-friendly business journals – as one big reason for the hike.
Yet way back in 1999, the revered British Medical Journal – to pick one of hundreds out of the hat – published an editorial saying that vaccines can have long-term adverse effects, including diabetes. They added, ‘many other chronic immunological diseases, including asthma, allergies, and immune mediated cancers, have risen rapidly and may also be linked to immunization’. Evolving research since then has changed it from ‘may be linked’ to ‘are linked’.
Doctors were warning, in the BMJ, in 1999: “Public should be told that vaccines may have long-term adverse effects.” Yet the opposite is now happening: the vaccine industry is trying to close the floodgates and keep it all hush-hush. Folks, we are living in that nightmare dystopian future.
Except that I feel like laughing at them. Do they really think they can put the genie of truth back in the bottle now? Really? Or are they just buying time before the game’s well and truly up? (This is why we will ultimately win the battle!)
As I’ve explained in Tip of the Needle, and as Dr Jayne Donegan explains in the foreword, vaccines have never halted epidemics. If anything, vaccines can start epidemics, and sometimes they just don’t work. I could write a book (and have) to explain this, but here’s just one reason:
Vaccines can start epidemics because many are modified live virus (MLV) vaccines, also called ‘attenuated’. Attenuated/MLV vaccines can shed and revert to virulence, meaning that they can infect the person receiving the vaccine; they can infect other people coming into contact with the vaccine-infected individual; and, through shedding, can just infect people (and dogs).
This is why, when mandatory rabies vaccine was introduced in America, they kept getting rabies outbreaks in dogs. They had to switch to killed vaccines.
Dr Suzanne Humphries spoke about this in 2015. She highlighted the technological advancements that have allowed for vaccine-strain viruses to be identified in children.
“There were several cases of measles outbreaks occurring in children who had just been vaccinated,” explained Dr Humphries.
“They looked at, with DNA and genetic fingerprinting, what strains they were – and it was the vaccine strain that they were infected with. So not only did they become sick from measles from the strain that they were vaccinated with, but they were contagious.”
Can you believe this? The measles vaccine is causing measles, and the people who weren’t vaccinated are blamed for it!
The kennel cough vaccine for dogs isn’t an MLV vaccine, though – but it also spreads disease. Dogs who receive this vaccine can, according even to the regulator-approved datasheet, get a ‘mild’ dose of kennel cough. These vaccinated dogs can then infect humans with what looks like whooping cough, and they can also infect other dogs and start kennel cough outbreaks. So character-disordered individuals are sitting in corporations pushing vaccines for dogs that represent a public health hazard for humans. Or maybe they don’t know what they’re doing. Surely that’s got to be selective inattention? Because they ought to know.
Similarly the flu vaccine can give people flu, and they go onto infect others. Parvovirus in dogs didn’t even exist before it was created by a vaccine manufacturer, and one scholarly paper about it expressed relief that it wasn’t a human vaccine that did this to humans. (Except there’s some pretty strong science to say that AIDs was another vaccine-induced plague.) These truths are fully referenced in Tip.
Distortion of facts: measles
Mostly all of the anti-anti-vaxxer news reports talk about measles cases increasing, and it’s all our fault. But mostly it’s ‘the discredited’ Andrew Wakefield’s fault. This is constructive lying.
If you have internet access, you may like to look at this link: https://www.rsph.org.uk/uploads/assets/uploaded/f8cf580a-57b5-41f4-8e21de333af20f32.pdf?fbclid=IwAR3eKTSdNyoPDi5wnf5Nlqgk-hg_0nKpHNZTYevBHTqOfcH2Wh2asoOUwBc
It’s a lovely glossy brochure produced by the Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH), promoting vaccination uptake. They’ve also identified social media as ‘promoting negative messages about vaccinations’. The vaccine industry has left no stone unturned, it seems, and no friendly sector or group out of the campaign network.
The RSPH stated in its glossy brochure that it was calling for government and social media platforms to silence vaccine dissent and boost positive vaccine stories.
Not at all surprisingly, the RSPH project was sponsored by MSD (Merck, a vaccine manufacturer), although MSD ‘did not have any editorial input and is not responsible for the content or opinions expressed … ‘. Yes, right.
There are many examples in this document where the authors can be accused of being deliberately vague and lying – by omission and distortion, or maybe through downright ignorance (ignore-ance).
The RSPH report says: “We now face measles outbreaks in Europe – reaching a record high of 41,000 cases in August 2018 – directly attributable to low coverage following the Wakefield scandal.”
That’s a lie.
Immunologist Tetyana Obukhanych PhD is slightly more scientific and truthful about it in http://www.greenmedinfo.com/blog/open-letter-legislators-considering-vaccine-legislation-tetyana-obukhanych-phd?fbclid=IwAR03bY5oWN3Rlk6yHmmEW8QJpywprhg2PIuLcyIN9c_YcoXsGPgdS3wETBw She writes:
Measles research scientists have for a long time been aware of the ‘measles paradox.’ I quote from the article by Poland & Jacobson (1994) ‘Failure to Reach the Goal of Measles Elimination: Apparent Paradox of Measles Infections in Immunized Persons.’ Arch Intern Med 154:1815-1820: “The apparent paradox is that as measles immunization rates rise to high levels in a population, measles becomes a disease of immunized persons.”
“Further research determined that behind the ‘measles paradox’ is a fraction of the population called LOW VACCINE RESPONDERS. Low-responders are those who respond poorly to the first dose of the measles vaccine. These individuals then mount a weak immune response to subsequent re-vaccination and quickly return to the pool of ‘susceptibles’ within 2-5 years, despite being fully vaccinated.
Re-vaccination cannot correct low-responsiveness: it appears to be an immuno-genetic trait. The proportion of low-responders among children was estimated to be 4.7% in the USA.
“Studies of measles outbreaks in Quebec, Canada, and China attest that outbreaks of measles still happen, even when vaccination compliance is in the highest bracket (95-97% or even 99%). This is because even in high vaccine responders, vaccine-induced antibodies wane over time. Vaccine immunity does not equal life-long immunity [as is] acquired after natural exposure.
“It has been documented that vaccinated persons who develop breakthrough measles are contagious. In fact, two major measles outbreaks in 2011 (in Quebec, Canada, and in New York, NY) were re-imported by previously vaccinated individuals.”
Measles outbreaks occur in heavily vaccinated populations. It’s not down to irresponsible people who don’t get their shots, but because the measles vaccine is no guarantee of long-term immunity, even if repeated and repeated and repeated. Only natural immunity, acquired when you get a dose of the real measles, prevents re-infection.
Here’s just one paper amongst many, showing a measles outbreak despite a 98% vaccine coverage, three percentage points above the heralded herd immunity level:
It’s just downright manipulative – and a lie – to claim that Andrew Wakefield or parents who choose not to risk vaccine-induced disease are to blame for measles or any other epidemic. Vaccine technology itself, and its failings, must take a large part of the blame.
Something other than vaccines saves lives
Dr Jayne Donegan’s website is another wealth of reliable information. If the vaccine industry and its chums have their way, it could be taken down soon. You may remember that Dr Donegan is the UK doctor who the GMC tried to get struck off because she was sharing vaccine truth. They failed and she won – using government data.
Where measles is concerned, this brave GP says:
“There are about 170,000 measles deaths per years worldwide (2008 figures), but, as the World Health Organisation (WHO) states:
“The overwhelming majority (more than 95%) of measles deaths occur in countries with low per capita incomes and weak health infrastructures… Most measles deaths are caused by complications associated with the diseases,” and,
“Severe measles is more likely among poorly nourished young children, especially those with insufficient vitamin A, or whose immune systems have been weakened by HIV/AIDS or other diseases…. As high as 10% of measles cases result in death among populations with high levels of malnutrition and lack of adequate health care”.
Measles severity is directly related to malnutrition. Why are measles cases increasing in the wealthy West in recent years? Would it have anything to do with Austerity, imposed on the poor when ill-regulated bankers nearly destroyed our economies and walked away without suffering any of the consequences – thanks to favourable government legislation (for the banks, that is)?
An Independent piece, stated: “A landmark study has linked Tory austerity to 120,000 deaths”. Other reports tell us about the rising number of food banks – for impoverished people in the wealthiest countries in the world who can’t afford to eat.
Which is why I state in Tip of the Needle that infectious disease is about poverty and malnutrition, and why I assert that the ever-growing divide between rich and poor has more to do with disease outbreaks than anything a vaccine can or cannot do.
If the public can be made to believe Big Pharma lies, it will get worse for ordinary people, but better for the industry. The money will keep going to the wealthy elite, and the poor will continue to die of malnutrition and malnutrition-created infectious disease.
Distortion of facts: pertussis
The MSD-sponsored RSPH glossy brochure also said, “Another reason for opposition [to vaccination] has been concerns around side-effects. The 1970s and 1980s saw a major vaccine scare in the UK surrounding the pertussis vaccine for infants, following the publication of a series of cases in 1974 suggesting an association between the vaccine and neurological complications. Widespread media publicity followed, and by 1977 coverage of the vaccine had declined from 77% to 33%, leading to three major epidemics of whooping cough. The link between the vaccine and neurological harm was never proven and immunisation uptake returned to pre-1974 levels by the late 1980s.”
Hmmm… I’d call this selective reporting, omission and distortion.
In fact, a ‘Background Paper Prepared for the Committee on the Evaluation of Vaccine Purchase Financing in the United States’ in 2001, outlined the ‘Legacy of the DTP vaccine’:
“To understand the history of DTaP, it is necessary to understand the legacy of its wholecell predecessor, DTP (diphtheria, tetanus, and whole-cell pertussis) vaccine. Simply put, over the course of two decades (from the 1970s to the 1990s) safety issues related to the whole-cell pertussis component of DTP drove a series of events that dramatically impacted the vaccine industry, led to a reshaping of vaccine policies and programs, and resulted in an intensive international search for a new, acellular pertussis vaccine. . .
“Unfortunately, there was also a downside to DTP. While clearly effective in preventing disease, the whole-cell pertussis component was associated with a range of adverse events, including rare but serious neurological consequences.”
The document goes on to say that vaccine uptake declined, and there were more pertussis cases and deaths in Japanese children and in Great Britain.
“In the US, while public concerns about the safety of DTP gained momentum starting in the 1970s, it was not until the early 1980s that the issue exploded domestically. Three related sets of events converged to reshape the US market for DTP and for childhood vaccines more generally: (1) dramatic increases in media coverage of potential adverse effects of DTP; (2) exponential growth in product liability lawsuits brought by consumers against pertussis manufacturers, and (3) exiting of manufacturers from the market.”
Lawsuits began to rise against the makers of the DTP vaccine – and they stopped making the vaccine. Why not defend themselves if the vaccine is so safe? Why exit the market rather than face having to pay out compensation to people whose lives were terminated or badly damaged?
“During a six-month period in 1984, in response to the growing liability crisis, two of the three manufacturers distributing DTP in the US market Wyeth and Connaught dropped out, leaving Lederle as the sole supplier in the U.S. (CDC, 1984).”
Against this backdrop, American Congress launched its National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986, a comprehensive legislative package that established the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP), a no-fault compensation program that limits manufacturer liability and provides substantial payments to the families of children who sustain documented injuries following routine immunization with recommended childhood vaccines.
So going back to the MSD-sponsored RSPH glossy brochure: “The link between the vaccine and neurological harm was never proven and immunisation uptake returned to pre-1974 levels by the late 1980s.” Would you say this is the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth? And are THESE people reliable enough witnesses to influence governments when it comes to forcing us and our children to have vaccines that have a whole legal category of their own, aimed at limiting manufacturer liability?
You have got to be joking. But it’s not a joke.
The National Vaccine Information Center offers information that might give a fuller picture to enable parents and doctors to make up their own minds about whether they want their children to have the whooping cough vaccine, without being sponsored by MSD. Do take a look at it; it comprehensively and, in detail, discredits the MSD-sponsored RSPH exercise in vagueness. This may be another website they want to take down: https://www.nvic.org/vaccines-and-diseases/whooping-cough/vaccine-injury.aspx
In addition, and importantly, immunologist Tetyana Obukhanych PhD points out that the (new) pertussis vaccine isn’t very effective:
“The acellular pertussis (aP) vaccine (the final element of the DTaP combined vaccine), now in use in the USA, replaced the whole cell pertussis vaccine in the late 1990s, which was followed by an unprecedented resurgence of whooping cough. An experiment with deliberate pertussis infection in primates revealed that the aP vaccine is not capable of preventing colonization and transmission of B. pertussis.”
Interesting that the RSPH commentary stopped at the 1980s, isn’t it. And interesting that the new vaccine doesn’t blooming work! But it will be your fault if you decide not to offer yourself up to the vaccine.
The problem about sharing vaccine Truth is that one could go on, and on, and on, pointing out the truth behind the lies. And who – apart from rare people like you – is going to take the time to read it?
I – and many others – could take WHO and RSPH and any other pro-vaccinating, manipulative, lying documents apart word by word …. and the frustration is that most people will yawn and go back to sleep until someone they love is destroyed by the lies. And it’s all so easy to take the lies at face value.
More media propaganda
On March 27th, the Jeremy Vine show on BBC Radio 2 did a piece on the latest government ‘anti-vaxx’ assault. CHC member Maurice Lea very kindly risked a heart attack by listening to it and reviewing it for us:
Complete and utter BIASED DEADLY BOLLOCKS
First half from BBC ‘health editor’

Well, that was clearly a staged piece of propaganda. And if someone tells you one lie, you have to assume that they’re happy to tell you another lie and another lie. I, for one, have never heard of anyone recommending bleach enemas, and I’ve been in this field for over a quarter of a century. Similarly, how could anyone trust a vet who insists that dogs need to be vaccinated annually?
The Truth, the Whole Truth, and Nothing But the Truth, please
Who is misinforming who? The Chapelfield Veterinary Partnership Ltd, Long Stratton, put a poster up on Facebook in March. It said:
“Parvovirus Alert. Parvo is a highly infectious disease. Recent cases have been reported in Norfolk. Young puppies and unvaccinated dogs are at risk. Please make sure your dog has up-to-date vaccinations.”
So an undercover CHC member, the brave Linda Bland, picked up the phone and asked Chapelfield Veterinary Partnership Ltd a few salient questions. Chapelfield told her that it wasn’t actually their practice that had experienced the parvo outbreak. It was a practice down the road – Wymondham Veterinary Practice. So our Truth Seeker phoned them, too.
“I just rang Wymondham. It was one case …. I repeat one case. I asked if the dog was unvaccinated or vaccinated and she said she couldn’t divulge that information, and couldn’t wait to declare it’s all been sorted now and only unvaccinated dogs are at risk. I said, looking at the advert, I thought a whole load of dogs had gone down with it … she said oh no. I said well your advert does imply that. It was a bit of scaremongering.”
So the use of a pleural (cases) is constructively a lie. It’s not the truth, the whole truth, or nothing but the truth. It’s an exaggeration that makes one case look like many cases. A lie.
The poster also says that unvaccinated dogs are at risk. But that’s another constructive lie – because vaccinated dogs can and do also come down with parvo, and unvaccinated dogs can develop natural immunity.
And nowhere – not in the poster, and not from the bod on the phone, did anyone tell dog owners that ‘once a dog is immune to parvovirus, he is immune for years and probably for life’. That’s another constructive lie: a lie of omission aimed at getting pet owners to fork out money that doesn’t need to be forked-out whilst, incidentally, putting their pets at risk of vaccine-induced disease.
We live in complex times, where power and control are used covertly; where lies are the norm and confusion is promoted. What you think you know may not be true; and while you think you’re keeping your loved-ones safe, you may be harming them … because you’ve been spoon-fed lies. And worryingly, even the experts are duped into repeating lies – because they haven’t performed due diligence and don’t know what the heck they’re talking about.
Never before has it been so vital to get wisdom. Proverbs 16:16 How much better to get wisdom than gold, to get insight rather than silver!
