Every media outlet seemed to be covering the Disneyland outbreak. Did you read where they said the parents choosing to opt their kids out of vaccines caused this? Did you read anything about the whistleblower that came out, Dr. William Thompson, Senior Scientist for the CDC, stating that they intentionally manipulated and adjusted the study data to erase a link to autism from the MMR vaccine? [1, 2,] Did you read about how Merck is being sued for fraud by its own scientists? [3, 4] I would like to go through the Disneyland case, the vaccination logic, and much more. I hope that you bear with me (print it out and read it in chunks if needed), securely fasten your best thinking cap on and get ready to leave your presuppositions behind. We are going to where many of you have never gone before and I hope this will make you think, ask questions and do your own research.

Let’s begin by defining immunity. What does it mean to be immune? Taking the word back to its original content, im + muni, it means not (as in impossible) duty/function. In other words, exempt from that function or duty. As vaccination has become a foundation in our society, the word immune evolved to a meaning of antibodies to a disease. This is because there is a presupposition that when a person has antibodies to a disease they exempt from that disease. I would like to challenge this assumption with logic and facts.

Antibodies can be produced with any antigen: enzyme, toxin, or other substance that results in the body producing antibodies. Antibodies are produced from activation of B cells by the T cells and are not what destroy the pathogen directly. Actually, it’s our phagocytes. A simpler way to picture phagocytes is through pus. Think about an infected cut on your hand. You may notice that before pus is seen, that redness, heat, swelling and pain are felt. This is part of the inflammation process that is necessary to allow increased blood flow to the area and to increase capillary permeability. It is only when those capillaries are primed to leak the b cells and plasma, containing antibodies, that the ‘invaders’ will be dealt with. As the phagocyte count goes up in the area, so does the visibility of the infection or the debris from the biological battle (this is what happens in sepsis, too much can kill). This cell mediation is done through a biochemical process using histamine, prostaglandins, cytokines, pyrogens, etc and is not as simplistic as us laypersons assume. Antibodies are like having a bunch of cameras, but no law enforcer (with a matching key or access to the camera) to fight crime. It doesn’t make the body more efficient at fighting disease anymore than security cameras can personally stop crime.

According to the presupposition that many people have about antibodies, it is assumed that antibodies completely rid the body of a virus or bacteria and make that body exempt from that particular disease. Now, if this was entirely true a person would not get shingles as shingles is the reactivation of the chickenpox virus. Actually, it is already known that many viruses stay in the body and can reactivate at a later time: mononucleosis, cytomegalovirus, herpes virus (the many strains), hepatitis b [8] and more. Viruses not only can remain in a body in our cells, but they can be passed down to offspring. Check out the nefarious HHV-6. [9] This virus can wreak havoc in your system, infiltrate your genome and be passed to your offspring to continue its nasty work. Or there is the SV40. This virus contaminated the original polio vaccine. It causes cancer and it has been found to be passed down to offspring as well. [10, 11, 41]Actually, an interesting little tidbit is that the whole transgenic movement started with Rudolph Jaenisch and Beatrice Mintz infecting the embryos of mice with SV40 virus. It was then found that viral DNA can be integrated into the germ line. [11] It’s pretty clear that by injecting or contracting a virus that this doesn’t make a person exempt from that disease or give them an ‘immunity’.

Let’s consider the cases and information that is already out there. The CDC reported more than once about highly immunized populations contracting and testing positive for the very virus it was immunized against: The USS Ardent in February 2014 and the USS Arkansas in 1996. [12, 13] Think of all those that were vaccinated that came down with pertussis. There are several people this year that died from the very same flu strain they were vaccinated against. Kiera Driscoll,5, received the flu vaccination this year, yet died from the same strain of flu weeks later. [30, 31] Ayzlee McCarthy,3, who received the flu vaccination this year and died from the same strain. [32] Kathrine McQuestion,26, died from the flu, but was vaccinated this year as well. [33]The Disneyland scare which no one ever found patient zero, led to a lot of fear about measles and more awareness. They started testing genotypes and found several different genotypes (so definitely not all from the same source). [27] First of all, many vaccinated people came down with the measles and the unknown vaccinated status was lumped into the unvaccinated category. To begin with, that is terrible science and is not a valid perception of vaccinated vs unvaccinated. Several of the cases for measles, were vaccine-induced measles. Anchorage had a case of vaccine-induced strain of measles around that time and so did Baltimore. [14, 15, 16, 17] Please notice on how the vaccine strain of measles was portrayed by media as a ‘reaction’ (with the same symptoms and testing positive as measles), but not a viral infection. I know for a fact that measles can be contracted from a vaccine and be spread because I was one of the kids in the 80’s that contracted measles not long after being vaccinated for a second time and my brother came down with measles too. My mom talked with the local health officials after consulting a doctor, so I know that somewhere reporting is a little skewed.

But let’s say you don’t believe my personal story or you still think it is ‘rare’. How many of you have read the vaccine inserts? The MMR vaccine insert that is posted on the FDA website states that a person can develop atypical measles and that any person that has received the vaccine can shed the virus up to 28 days. [18] But it is reasoned for us that there is no indication that the virus can be transmitted to another through the excretion or shedding of the virus. That’s odd. How else is a virus transmitted if not through the excretion of the virus or through the end of a needle? While you puzzle out that doublespeak, I would highly recommend looking through the different adverse reactions and noting that the MMR vaccine has never been tested for carcinogenesis, mutagenesis, or impairment of fertility and it clearly states that the vaccine is not 100% effective like we are told.

Now, can vaccines harm a person? Yes, they can and most people know of the mild ‘side effects’. Officials have no problem telling you those. If you read the above vaccine insert you will see that there are many adverse events that can take place. Search VAERS or go to Recently, in Mexico, the whole country’s vaccination program was suspended after 52 babies were vaccinated and 31 experienced an ‘adverse event’. 2 died and the other 29 were hospitalized with some in critical condition. [19] The Gardisil vaccination has killed girls and it has left a wake of injuries. [22, 24, 25, 26, 35] Japan withdrew support for the vaccine. [23] India has a judge demanding the explanation of the deaths of the children used in the Gardisil vaccine trial. [35] The H1N1 vaccine caused hundreds to suffer brain damage and GlaxoSmithKline was ordered to pay out $63 million to its victims (this couldn’t happen in the US as we are not allowed to sue the manufacturers for vaccine injury). [20, 21] There are so many cases out there, that I recommend researching on your own and stop taking the ‘official’ report for it, because I guarantee it will be downplayed. And what is so sad, is you will see that SIDS and encephalitis (brain swelling) are mentioned as rare ‘side effects’ in a couple of the vaccine inserts, but it is presented as doublespeak. Remember that few doctors report vaccine injuries or illness in following weeks after vaccination as an injury and few, if any, are trained to spot vaccine injuries. We are told that correlation does not equal causation. Does anyone find it interesting that antibodies are only a small part of the disease fighting mechanisms in our body and there is no explicit way to prove vaccines save anyone from a disease? I would say that the whole vaccination program is based on less than correlation vs. causation.

Ok. So this is a lot to take in. I will sum up some of it so that you can read other vaccine inserts on your own and find that many of the vaccines can make a person shed that virus. I point this out again, because there is a fear about the unvaccinated being ‘contagious’. However, the facts are that the vaccinated are contagious for a certain amount of time, that antibodies are not equal to a true immunity, and that vaccination does not make a person exempt to a particular disease. It literally is the inoculation with a disease causing pathogen with a bunch of other substances. Sometimes this includes contaminants such as other viruses like the SV40 or aggregate proteins. [35, 36]

So maybe it is ‘rare’ that injuries happen to the vaccinated. Let’s say you really believe that there is honest, open and thorough reporting of all the damage and disease caused by vaccination (like vaccine induced diabetes). In the US, vaccine manufacturers are not liable for product safety or effectiveness, because of the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986. I can’t sue the manufacturer when my child is vaccinated and still dies from lack effectiveness of the vaccine. The Canary Party has a really good short film that goes into the vaccine court and I recommend watching it. [33]

Before we move on, I would like you to consider vaccination another way. Vaccination is the attempt to enhance the human body from its original healthy state. The vaccination program is the attempt to enhance and change the human race from its original healthy state. The acceptance and movement of improving the human species is the beginning and foundation of eugenics. And it is when a person or human beings are no longer accepted for who they are, as they are, they will be dehumanized. This is the starting place of genocide.

As Barbara Loe Fischer stated, “If the State can tag, track down and force you against your will to be injected with biologicals of known and unknown toxicity today then there will be no limit on which other freedoms the State can take away in the name of greater good tomorrow.”

I want to add that in the future and, maybe even now, vaccines can be used as vectors for not just aborted fetal cells, but nanotechnology, biosimilars, 'gene therapy', etc and some 'vaccines' can be used to sterilize or make a human infertile. In other words, vaccines have the ability to change the natural function of the body and for targeted soft kill.

I would go further to define what is going on now as State sanctioned eugenics, aimed at any person who doesn't submit to changing their bodies, or thoughts, to what the State defines as 'healthy'. Our medicine of 'saving lives' has evolved to a monster to define what is acceptable, healthy and good. Our idol in the US is to follow this 'health' directive given to us by our government. This is all inclusive and extends from cradle to grave and permeates every aspect of our lives. It seeks to neutralize or destroy any of those that oppose it or does not fit its definition. We are in big trouble as the 'antivaxxers' are the first to have their rights formally taken away and if more people don't step up to defend this group of individuals from being dehumanized it’s not going to stop there. There will be no protection for the immunocompromised, the sick, the genetically defective, those defined as 'mentally ill', the too young or too old as they are seen as just as much of a threat to the well-being and 'health' of others and to the nation. Their 'genes' are a threat, their lack of ability to stay well is a threat, their inconvenience and resource draining is a threat, their mental thoughts and overall 'mental health' is a threat, etc. It is not the first time in history where political dissidents or those that believed in God were classified 'mentally ill'. No one is going to be exempt from the forced health directives of the state.

Currently, we have our Senate (H.R. 2232 sponsored by FL- Congresswoman Frederica Wilson) and many States seeking complete removal of all vaccine exemptions and increasing the pressure for all people to receive vaccines or potentially face losing their jobs, education, children or more. Many people in our country are already facing severe discrimination. Jodi Ferris had her newborn forcibly taken after birth for declining the Hep B vaccination for her child.[42] Schools are asking nursing students to lie to coerce patients into vaccination.[38, 39] There are those that have been given color coded badges or forced to wear a mask (symptom free) and fired for their refusal of vaccination. [40] Maybe you think, well I am not a kid and this doesn’t affect me. You would be wrong in this assumption as our government is working towards taking your rights to say ‘no’ away to any federally recommended vaccine as well. The National Adult Immunization Plan is being currently being set up and is guided by the goals stated in the Healthy People 2020. [34] There is an ever growing list of profit making vaccines that can be mandated and which manufacturers not only can rush, but have no need to worry about how others can be harmed. It is on our shoulders to prove we were injured and there is limited recourse we can take. Regardless, this marks a time in history of the US that no one is going to be exempt from the forced health directives of the state and no one is going to be ‘safe’. If you have time, watch the movie Bought.[37] There is a free screening until May 30th.

I threw a lot out there and I hope that it makes you think. If you are concerned about this matter, contact your representatives and let them know. Educate them, ask them to stand up for the value of all humans, not just those they believe deserve it. Go to and go to their advocacy portal and sign up. Write letters to the local paper, tell your friends, open up the lines of communication and get educated. Tell people your stories of vaccine failure or injury.

It is obvious that there is great reluctance to accept vaccine injuries and the failures that take place. Even more so, there is a greater thought to protect the vaccination program. It seems to me that the game is rigged and that vaccines are faith based not science based. It is not science to assume that every person that didn’t get sick and die was the result of vaccination. That’s blind faith. It is not science to assume that every person that does not get vaccinated is a carrier of disease. That’s a witch hunt. It is time to step up and speak out.
