President Trump Announces Elite Pedophile Ring Investigation
Posted on February 24, 2017 by Baxter Dmitry
President Trump has announced a federal investigation into the Pizzagate elite pedophile scandal involving human trafficking on Tuesday and promised to help put an end to the “horrific, really horrific crimes taking place.”
The president held a short, dramatic press conference after meeting with human trafficking experts to announce that he will direct “the Department of Justice, the Department of Homeland Security and other federal agencies” to devote more resources and personnel to the investigation.
Appearing at the press conference for less than two minutes, President Trump said that the issue has been on the radar of federal government “for some time” but since taking office in January the investigation has become “much more focused.”
“It has been much more focused over the last four weeks, I can tell you that.”

Pedogate: US Senator Arrested On Pedophile Charges High-level arrest made of politician caught with young boy

By: Jay Greenberg |@NeonNettle on 16th March 2017 @ 10.13am
US Senator Ralph Shortey is facing multiple pedophilia and child sex trafficking charges after he was arrested in a motel room where he had taken a young boy for sex. Shortey served as a Republican member of the Oklahoma Senate but has now been stripped of all his assignments and privileges by the Senate following the news of his arrest. During the arrest, Shortey tried to convince police that he was just “hanging out with a friend”, but after seizing his smartphone, evidence was found of him texting children and offering them money in return for “sexual stuff”. The father of the unidentified young boy had called the police after being worried about his son’s welfare and a senior Moore Police Department officer, Master Sgt. J. White, was dispatched to a Super 8 in Moore after receiving complaints of Marijuana smoke coming from the motel room, where Shortey was discovered with the minor, according to the police report.

1000 Muslim Men Stone 17 Year Old Virgin To Death (Caution Very Graphic)
Posted By: Allan Smith March 12, 2017
The killing of Du’a Khalil Aswad is shown here. Up to 1000 men from the Yezidi Kurdish community of Mosul killed a teenager who’s only crime was running away to marry a Muslim man whom she loved and for possibly converting to his religion.For four months the girl had been given shelter by a local Muslim Sheik. It was reported that in the last few days her family persuaded her to return home, convincing her that she had been forgiven by her parents  and relatives for her mistake.In a short mobile video clip which appears to have been taken by locals, the girl is seen being ambushed on her way home by a group of up to 1000 men who were waiting for her to return; the men killed her in the  most brutal way possible, by throwing large stones on her head. The following clips show that while she is alive and crying for help she is taunted and kicked in her stomach until someone finishes her off by throwing a large stone on her face.

Health News – Grand Jury Finds 50 Priests Raped Hundreds Of Philadelphia Children

Grand Jury Finds 50 Priests Raped Hundreds Of Philadelphia Children
By Rmuse on Sat, Mar 5th, 2016 at 1:37 pm
The wheels of justice didn’t turn at all in Philadelphia because the Church concealed the crimes and protected the rapists.
In this column on Friday, a reference was made to the quote from Chinese author Sun Tzu or Sūn Wu in “The Art of War” that says “the wheels of justice grind slow, but grind exceedingly fine.” The statement is relatively accurate in the secular world, but is not remotely applicable to religion; particularly the Catholic religion. This is not an indictment of the faith as a whole, but it is a condemnation of the Vatican leadership that allowed pedophilia by its clergy to go unpunished and unreported despite the tens-of-thousands of lives that have been forever ruined.
There will never be any real justice for the victims of sexual abuse perpetrated by Catholic priests in and around Philadelphia; at least not in the sense that even one of the 50 serial rapists will ever be punished. In those cases, the wheels of justice not only did not turn slowly, they didn’t turn at all because the Church concealed the crimes and protected the rapists. However, according to a grand jury report released Tuesday; “Hundreds of children in western Pennsylvania were sexually assaulted by 50 Roman Catholic priests over four decades while the diocese’ Catholic bishops covered up their actions.”

Grand jury: Altoona diocese concealed sex abuse of hundreds of children by priests
March 1, 2016 11:47 PM
By Peter Smith / Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
ALTOONA — After the tolling of the noon hour Tuesday at the magnificent domed Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament, whose towering perch above this historic railroad town reflects the Catholic Church’s long powerful presence in central Pennsylvania, the Rev. Dennis Kurdziel left little doubt for whom the bell tolled.
“Pray for the victims,” said Father Kurdziel in a somber noontime Mass, held less than two hours after the release of a state grand jury report finding that hundreds of children were abused by at least 50 priests and others associated with the church in the Diocese of Altoona-Johnstown across nearly half a century.
“Pray for your bishop,” added Father Kurdziel, associate pastor of the cathedral. “Pray for your priests. I need your prayers. Ask for God’s help, even on this very ugly day.”
And with that, the congregation of several dozen bowed in extended silent prayer before resuming the Mass liturgy.
Across town at the Blair County Convention Center, authorities were releasing a catalog of horrors in a 147-page report by the 37th Statewide Investigating Grand jury, which spent nearly two years delving into the case.

Satanists And Muslims Unite To Do Something Sick To Florida Government
by Chris Reynolds March 6, 2017 9:27 am

For a very long time, we will likely still be dealing with the repercussions of how deeply President Barack Hussein Obama divided our once great nation and corrupted our country’s Judeo-Christian values.
Obama, who is from a Muslim family in Kenya, does not regularly attend church and has been recorded questioning the value of the Bible, has succeeded in instilling the values of his depraved worldview into certain segments of American society. Proof of this can be seen in a shocking development in the Florida government system.
According to reports, in meetings of the Lake Worth, Florida City Commission, atheists, Satan worshipers and Muslims have banded together to hijack the invocation that is supposed to ceremoniously start the government planning session.

British anti-ISIS veteran crowdfunds his 3rd ‘tour’ to Syria
Published time: 13 Mar, 2017
A British former soldier wants to travel to Syria for the third time to help the Kurds fight Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL).
Steven Kerr, from Northamptonshire, hopes to join the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) in their on-going assault on the IS capital of Raqqa.
Kerr, a 58-year-old father of two, quit his job as a warehouse manager two years ago to join the YPG on the frontlines of Syria.
Having served in the British Army from 1978 to 1984, he thought that his military background might help the Kurds in their fight against IS.
“I saw the atrocities ISIS were doing on the Kurdish civilians. And I just thought with my military experience I might be able to do something to help,” Kerr told the Sunday Times.
Kerr got in touch with the YPG leadership through Facebook and has spent over 11 months in the combat zone in the past two years.
In his first tour, Kerr helped the Kurdish militia to defend a number of villages along the Euphrates, where he was wounded by a mortar shell.
“We used to get mortared constantly, every day and night. You hear the thump of the mortar being fired. Then if you count to 10 and get past 10 you know the round has gone way overhead.
“One night we got to nine and then the side of the building caved in. I got shrapnel in my head, eyes and legs,” he said.
After only two months of recovering in the UK, Kerr returned to Syria, where he again fought with the YPG until April 2016.
The former soldier said that despite the periods of highly intensive combat, including the near-constant sniper fire and mortar shelling, he frequently suffered from boredom while on the frontlines in Syria.
“Having to just sit in a village when there’s nothing to do, it can grate on you after a while.

‘Dying in silence’: Suffering of Syrian children at its worst, millions under attack, says UNICEF
Published time: 13 Mar, 2017 14:17
There are now nearly 6 million Syrian children suffering from the perils of war, including hundreds who were killed, maimed or recruited to fight in 2016, the worst year on record for Syrian children, a UN watchdog has said.
“The depth of suffering is unprecedented. Millions of children in Syria come under attack on a daily basis, their lives turned upside down,”said Geert Cappelaere, UNICEF regional director for the Middle East and North Africa, speaking from Homs, Syria. “Each and every child is scarred for life with horrific consequences on their health, well-being and future.”
At least 652 children died last year, and 255 of them were killed in or near their schools, the UNICEF report said. That signals a 20 percent increase on the number killed during 2015.
“A father in Aleppo lives with the trauma of letting his daughters go to school,” Cappelaere said, retelling one of the many heart-breaking stories from the conflict. “They left their makeshift home one morning with their schoolbags on their backs. Only their lifeless bodies returned after a shell slammed into their classroom.”
UNICEF also believes more than 850 children were recruited to take part in hostilities – double the number in 2015 – and were used as executioners, suicide bombers or prison guards.
While horrifying, the number pales in comparison to the 5.8 million Syrian children who are dependent on humanitarian assistance – a twelvefold increase from 2012, the organization said.
“Beyond the bombs, bullets and explosions, children are dying in silence often from diseases that can otherwise be easily prevented. Access to medical care, lifesaving supplies and other basic services remains difficult,” the report added.
Almost half of those in need were displaced, many of them up to seven times, and over 2.3 million children are now living as refugees in Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt and Iraq.
Child refugees living in relative safety in neighboring countries are still deprived of some basic needs, unable to go to school and forced to beg or do low-paying jobs to make the ends meet, the UNICEF report said.
Unsurprisingly, many children took life-threatening journeys on the so called ‘death boats’ crossing the Mediterranean to reach Europe.

‘Growing up with war’: Children of Syria share heartbreaking stories of death, fear & survival
Published time: 13 Feb, 2017 18:32
Six years of war in Syria means many of the country’s youngest citizens have never known a time of peace. RT visited the war-torn country to speak to children who are all too familiar with the death and violence that plagues Syria every day.
It is estimated that more than 8 million children have been affected in Syria’s ongoing civil war, forced to focus on survival while kids in other countries enjoy carefree days and playing with toys.
Some have stories of dodging bombs and sniper bullets, while others speak of being constantly on the move to escape the violence.
RT’s documentary “Growing Up with War: Children of Syria” gives a voice to some of the country’s most vulnerable, who recall tragic moments of death, fear and survival.
Ahmad, 11, experienced the tragedy of war firsthand, when a simple trip to the store left him injured by a sniper bullet in 2014.

Vaccine News – Did Chinese scientists find autism’s missing puzzle piece?

Would You Want Your Vaccine Produced by Supporters of Jihad?
by Judith Bergman
February 25, 2017 at 5:00 am
“Selling the crucial manufacture of vaccines to an ideologically hostile country, which might – for whatever reason – suddenly decide to shut down production, does not sound like a good idea… Those who say that the Saudis are merely interested in profit, just like everybody else, should know better”. — Rachel Ehrenfeld, expert on financing terrorism
Virtually all political parties supported the Danish government’s sale of its vaccine manufacturing facility to the Saudi conglomerate.
After the publication of the Danish Mohammad cartoons in 2006, Saudis boycotted Danish goods. Do Danish politicians really have such short memories?
Vaccines are not an easy commodity to come by. It takes minimum six months for an order of vaccines to be delivered, but, according to the World Health Organization, delivery can also easily take up to two years.
How much trust are Danish consumers supposed to have in a Saudi owned conglomerate, which employs jihadists such as Usmani and donates heavily to jihadist organizations such as the Muslim Brotherhood, who want to bring about a caliphate? The potential for political exploitation is too evident to reject.
Would you want your vaccines produced by a Saudi company that supports jihad? Danes, it seems, may have no choice.

Did Chinese scientists find autism’s missing puzzle piece?
BY J.B. HANDLEY February 22, 2017
Discovery #1: “Maternal Immune Activation” can cause autism
Further Refinement of Discovery #1: Immune Activation from the Cytokine Interleukin-6
Dr. Patterson: what can cause immune activation?
Aluminum hydroxide, aka “aluminum adjuvant”.
Discovery #2: Aluminum Adjuvant causes immune activation and is far more neurotoxic than previously thought
The scientific understanding of aluminum adjuvant toxicity has changed and deepened dramatically in recent years (since 2007).
Discovery #3: Aluminum can increase IL-6 in the brain
The evidence for post-natal autism triggers is strong
Discovery #4: Hepatitis B vaccine induces IL-6 in postnatal rats
This new study demonstrates that vaccines can affect brain development via immune activation. Hence, the immune activation experiments are relevant to vaccines…The hep B vaccine increased IL-6 in the hippocampus (the only brain region analyzed for cytokines).”
“Aluminum increased the intensity and duration of macroscopic and histologic inflammation, colonic myeloperoxidase activity, inflammatory cytokines expression, and decreased the epithelial cell renewal compared with control animals. Under basal conditions, aluminum impaired intestinal barrier function. In vitro, aluminum induced granuloma formation and synergized with lipopolysaccharide to stimulate inflammatory cytokines expression by epithelial cells. Deleterious effects of aluminum on intestinal inflammation and mucosal repair strongly suggest that aluminum might be an environmental IBD risk factor.”
“With the discovery of autoimmune/inflammatory syndrome induced by adjuvants (ASIA), the work of leading researchers from 14 countries on the role of adjuvants in different vaccines and how they can induce diverse autoimmune clinical manifestations in genetically prone individuals has been published in the newly released medical textbook, Vaccines and Autoimmunity.”
Mercury in vaccines is dangerous and unjustifiable based on published science. It should be removed from 100% of vaccines immediately.
Synergistic toxicity means that mercury combined with aluminum may be 100x more toxic than either metal by itself, we don’t really know:
“How can 1 + 1 = 100? ‘Synergistic toxicity’ refers to the effect that when exposed to two toxins, the toxicity level is far greater than the additive toxicity levels of the two toxins.”
There are many anecdotal stories that children diagnosed with autism today are “less severe.” Is this true? Is the removal of mercury the reason? There’s no data I can find to support this, so it’s just conjecture for the moment.
However, IF the core hallmark of triggering autism is an immune activation event, than aluminum adjuvant is more likely the central cause, and this matches the reality that autism rates have continued to rise after the removal of MOST mercury from vaccines. Mercury is NOT an immune system antagonist the way aluminum adjuvant is, mercury was in vaccines for its effectiveness as an antibacterial and an anti fungal, not an adjuvant.
VP has very strong opinions about the mercury vs. aluminum adjuvant debate, including this: “There are far more important issues than mercury, such as aluminum adjuvant neurotoxicity, and immune activation injury.”
The most obvious answer is that the MMR vaccine is the first live virus vaccine children receive (it’s typically given between age 12–18 months, most children have received 15–20 vaccines by then), and it’s a triple (measles, mumps, rubella) live virus. For an immune system bathed in aluminum adjuvant and possibly already simmering with activation events, this triple dose might push a child right over the edge. This might explain the seizures (an extreme immune activation event) that sometimes follow the MMR appointment. We also know that children who also receive the varicella vaccine (chicken pox) along with the MMR have higher rates of seizure events. This would make sense, four live viruses at once would likely challenge the immune system more than three, but we can’t explain exactly how the MMR biologically impacts the immune system the way we can for aluminum adjuvant, and now for Hepatitis B vaccine (thanks to Chinese scientists). Dr. Yehuda Shoenfeld discusses the fact that a live vaccine activates the immune system more than a vaccine using aluminum adjuvant:
“It is evident that a live attenuated vaccine is more prone than a killed vaccine to activate the immunity response.”
Question: Didn’t they already prove vaccines don’t cause autism?
No vaccine containing aluminum adjuvant has ever been explored for its relationship to autism, despite a growing and clear body of evidence implicating aluminum adjuvant in causing “immune activation,” the central cause of autism.

Hidden Laws and Guidelines on Informed Consent Could Protect Children Against Mandatory Vaccination
Recently, new laws have emerged surrounding the issue of informed consent, both in the UK and the US. However, very few of us know that these laws exist. We believe that this is because these laws have the potential to protect children against mandatory vaccination.
In the UK, a recent ruling titled The Montgomery Ruling states that a patient must have sufficient information to make an informed choice about any medical treatment that is being offered to them.
In 2015, the website Medical Protection, which outlined this ruling, stated that:
“The patient must have sufficient information to make a choice – without adequate information, patients are unable to make decisions about their treatment. The information provided should, for example, include: an explanation of the investigation, diagnosis or treatment; an explanation of the probabilities of success, or the risk of failure; or harm associated with options for treatment. The patient should be given time to ask questions. The GMC and the courts expect patients to be given all information material to their decision, with the proviso that it would not cause the patient serious harm.”
They continued:
“The patient must be able to give their consent freely – pressuring patients into consenting to treatment invalidates the consent. To ensure that consent is freely given, patients should, where possible, be given time to consider their options before deciding to proceed with a proposed treatment. Be aware, too, that patients’ friends and relatives may also try to exert their influence and that this can be subtle but nevertheless powerful.”
This ruling, which was made following the case of Montgomery v Lanarkshire Health Board, has huge implications surrounding the health and safety of hundreds of thousands of children, not only in the UK but worldwide.

Consent – The basics
15 May 2015
Summary
Respect for patients’ autonomy is expressed in consent law; to impose care or treatment on people without respecting their wishes and right to self-determination is not only unethical, but illegal.
Key principles
For consent to be valid:
The patient must be competent – mental capacity is decision-specific. Assessment of a person’s capacity should be based on his/her ability to understand, retain and weigh in the balance the information relevant to a particular decision. The person must also be able to communicate the decision. A patient who is unable to make a decision about a complex proposal is not necessarily incapable of making any decisions at all, and may be perfectly able to consent where the issues are simpler. The starting point in the case of adults is always to presume that the patient has capacity until it is shown otherwise.
The patient must have sufficient information to make a choice – without adequate information, patients are unable to make decisions about their treatment. The information provided should, for example, include: an explanation of the investigation, diagnosis or treatment; an explanation of the probabilities of success, or the risk of failure; or harm associated with options for treatment. The patient should be given time to ask questions. The GMC and the courts expect patients to be given all information material to their decision, with the proviso that it would not cause the patient serious harm.

Autism’s Gut-Brain Connection By Melissa Pandika
Groundbreaking research suggests that a treatment for autism may come in the form of a probiotic.
Stress can send your stomach into a painful tailspin, causing cramps, spasms and grumbling. But trouble in the gut can also affect the brain.
This two-way relationship may be an unlikely key to solving one of medicine’s most pressing — and perplexing — mysteries: autism. Nearly 60 years after the disorder was first identified, the number of cases has surged, and the United Nations estimates that up to 70 million people worldwide fall on the autism spectrum. Yet there is no known cause or cure.
The gut bacteria in individuals with autism aren’t just different… they may actually contribute to the disorder.
But scientists have found promising clues in the gut. Research has revealed striking differences in the trillions of bacteria — a.k.a., the microbiome — in the intestines of children with and without autism. But the gut bacteria in individuals with autism aren’t just different. Researchers at the California Institute of Technology have shown for the first time that they may actually contribute to the disorder. They reported in the journal Cell in December 2013 that an experimental probiotic therapy alleviated autism-like behaviors in mice and are already planning a clinical trial.
Today autism is treated primarily through behavioral therapy. But the new study suggests that treatment may one day come in the form of a probiotic — live, beneficial bacteria like those found in yogurt. “If you block the gastrointestinal problem, you can treat the behavioral symptoms,” Paul Patterson, a professor of biology at Caltech who co-authored the study told SFARI.org. University of Colorado Boulder professor Rob Knight hailed the finding as “groundbreaking” in a commentary in Cell.
Autism is a complex spectrum of disorders that share three classic features — impaired communication, poor social engagement and repetitive behaviors. On one end of the spectrum are people who are socially awkward but, in many cases, incredibly sharp. At the other extreme are individuals with severe mental disabilities and behavioral problems.
Treatment for autism may one day come in the form of a probiotic — live, ’friendly’ bacteria like those found in yogurt.
Among the most common health complaints from children with autism? Gastrointestinal problems. Although estimates vary widely, some studies have concluded that up to 90 percent of children with autism suffer from tummy troubles. According to the CDC, they’re more than 3.5 times more likely to experience chronic diarrhea and constipation than their normally developing peers.

Natural News – HuffPost, Slate and Salon all part of a massive vaccine cover-up “conspiracy of silence” to keep poisoning children with mercury
Sunday, February 26, 2017 by: Ethan Huff
(Natural News) The refusal of mainstream media outlets to report on or investigate vaccine safety issues is nothing new: it’s been like this for a long, long time, and is hardly a surprise to anyone who’s been paying attention to the official narrative for any substantial period of time. But now some “alternative” media outlets like the Huffington Post, Slate, and Salon are doing the exact same thing, aiding and abetting the enemy in keeping things like toxic mercury in childhood vaccines.
As part of his World Mercury Project challenge, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., recently gave a speech at the National Press Club Conference in which he addressed the issue of vaccine safety before a room full of reporters. Among other things, Kennedy talked about how vaccine safety under the current paradigm is a joke, especially when it comes to the continued use of a known mercury-based neurotoxin known as Thimerosal that is still used in influenza and various other vaccines administered to children.
During his speech, Kennedy, who recently met with President Trump about heading a new vaccine safety committee, took aim at journalists who refuse to look into the matter more deeply — which is their job on behalf of the public interest. Rather than honestly investigating the matter, they capitulate to the politically-correct notion that all vaccines are 100 percent safe and effective, and anyone who questions this is a science-denying quack.
“The so-called ‘alternate’ press, which is supposed to be the antidote to the corporate control of our media … they won’t run any kind of debate or criticism of this issue,” says Kennedy. “There’s something wrong with that in democracy that the press, which is the final readout for public scrutiny of institutions and industry, has been completely removed from this debate.”
“You cannot go on TV and talk about this. You cannot go to the press. You will be maligned; you will be marginalized as ‘anti-vax.’”

Over-vaccinating and the overdosing of pet vaccines has become a global issue. 5 lbs dogs are receiving the same dose of the rabies vaccine as 150 lbs Great Danes, and vets are now witnessing terrible side effects.

A replica of a Roman arch that once stood in front of the pagan Temple of Ba’al was erected for the World Government Summit in Dubai this week, creating a scene that one rabbi claims symbolizes the dangerous fusion of Ishmael and Edom against Israel.
The original Roman Victory Arch stood for 1,800 years in Palmyra, Syria, until it was destroyed by ISIS in October 2015. A full-size 28-meter tall replica of the arch was created last year by the Institute for Digital Archeology, a joint project of Oxford and Harvard universities, and has been displayed twice before.
The replica was erected for the opening of the World Government Summit that opened on Sunday in Dubai. Based in the United Arab Emirates, the summit  is an international organization for global dialogue where leaders in government, business, and technology discuss how governments operate and how policies are made.
The first summit, held in 2013, was attended by former US President Barack Obama, former UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon, and other world leaders.
Though a Roman artifact recreated in a modern Arab metropolis may seem incongruous, Rabbi Pinchas Winston, a prolific author and End of Days scholar, saw a deeper meaning in it that is incredibly relevant today.
Though Rome and the Arab Emirates appear in different parts of the world and at different points in history, Rabbi Winston sees them as connected ideologically and spiritually.
“Tradition tells of four exiles, the last being the Roman exile. Israel is being assailed by the Arabs but nowhere do we hear of a fifth, Arab or Ishmael exile,” explained Rabbi Winston. “This Roman arch in Dubai symbolically ties them both together: Ishmael, the Arabs, and Edom, which was epitomized by Rome.”
The original arch in Palmyra, built by Roman Emperor Septimius Severus, stood in front of a preexisting temple that was used by the Mesopotamians to worship the pagan god Bel, mentioned often in the Bible as Ba’al.
For he built again the high places which Chizkiyahu his father had destroyed; and he reared up altars for Baal. II Kings 21:3
“Just like the Romans, the Arabs are trying to control the world, and succeeding,” said Rabbi Winston. “Even though it is the Arabs against the Jews, it is really the Arabs continuing the mission of Edom to conquer the world. This connection between Dubai and Rome is showing that Edom never ended. It just put on a different mask.”
The first century Jewish sage Jonathan ben Uzziel wrote about how this Biblical alliance between Ishmael and Esau and would reappear at the End of Days. Clear evidence of the spiritual connection between these two seemingly disparate worlds can be found in the growing political cooperation between Rome and the Muslim/Arab world.

Shame on the Silent Christian Leaders Who Refuse to Stand Against Government Tyranny
Michael Brown Michael Brown |Posted: Feb 17, 2017
There is only one thing more appalling than the Washington Supreme Court’s 9-0 ruling against religious liberty on Friday. It is the silence of Christian leaders across America, leaders who choose convenience over confrontation, leaders who would rather be popular than prophetic, leaders who prefer the favor of people over the favor of God. Shame on these silent leaders. Today is a day to stand.
There are, of course, the handful of expected Christian voices protesting the court’s outrageous decision, as these justices ruled unanimously against florist Barronelle Stutzman, claiming that she discriminated against a longtime gay customer (named Robert Ingersoll) when she told him she couldn’t make the floral arrangement for his upcoming gay “wedding,” despite the fact that she had served him for years and despite her recommending three other florists who could do the arrangements for his wedding.
Instead, the court ruled that this 72-year-old grandmother who had employed gay workers and served gay customers for years, was required by law to participate in a gay wedding, even though this constituted a direct violation of her religious beliefs – beliefs which have been consistent and almost universally held among Christians for the last 2,000 years.
Not only so, but the court upheld the attack on her personal assets as well – her house, her savings, her retirement funds – by requiring her “to pay the attorneys’ fees that the ACLU racked up in suing her,” fees which could reach as high as one million dollars.
Previously, when Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson, an aggressive liberal who brought the suit against Barronnelle, “announced he would accept $2,000 in penalties, $1 in fees and costs, plus an agreement not to discriminate in the future and to end further litigation,” Barronnelle rejected the proposed settlement.
She explained, “Your offer reveals that you don’t really understand me or what this conflict is all about. It’s about freedom, not money. I certainly don’t relish the idea of losing my business, my home, and everything else that your lawsuit threatens to take from my family, but my freedom to honor God in doing what I do best is more important. Washington’s constitution guarantees us ‘freedom of conscience in all matters of religious sentiment.’ I cannot sell that precious freedom. You are asking me to walk in the way of a well-known betrayer, one who sold something of infinite worth for 30 pieces of silver. That is something I will not do.”
She continued, “I pray that you reconsider your position. I kindly served Rob for nearly a decade and would gladly continue to do so. I truly want the best for my friend. I’ve also employed and served many members of the LGBT community, and I will continue to do so regardless of what happens with this case. You chose to attack my faith and pursue this not simply as a matter of law, but to threaten my very means of working, eating, and having a home. If you are serious about clarifying the law, then I urge you to drop your claims against my home, business, and other assets and pursue the legal claims through the appeal process.”

IRAQI CHRISTIANS FLEE ISLAMIC TERROR. GET REJECTED BY GERMAN-MUSLIM IMMIGRATION EMPLOYEE
Posted on February 18, 2017
Iraqi Christian children look at a nativity scene that is displayed in a tent erected in the grounds of Mazar Mar Eillia Catholic Church, in Ankawa, that has now become home to hundreds of Iraqi Christians who were forced to flee their homes as the Islamic State advanced earlier this year, on December 12, 2014 in Erbil, Iraq / Getty
German broadcaster Welt24 reports, that a few days ago, German politician Wolfgang Bosbach met a Christian Iraqi family in Nordrhein-Westphalia (his constituency), who had recently applied for asylum in Germany.
Bosbach heard them tell how they had fled their country for fear of jihadist violence. Eventually, they reached the part of their story, in which they filled in their asylum application, in one of the foreign offices of the German Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF). There, they faced a BAMF employee with a headscarf, who was going to decide whether or not they, Christians, would get protected status.
Last year, 97.000 Iraqis submitted an application for asylum in Germany. In January, 64.6% of Iraqi asylum applications were successful. The family that Bosbach met however, was rejected, and they told him they felt they were at a disadvantage because of the official who handled their case. Bosbach understood their reasoning:
“I understand the applicants’ concern that their application may not have been decided upon solely on objective and prejudice-free considerations, (…) when they are Christians telling a headscarf-wearing Muslima that they have suffered persecution by Muslims.”
To Bosbach, it doesn’t matter so much, whether or not the official in question really was prejudiced, but merely that “the applicants have reason to fear that their application might not be objectively decided.” And Bosbach is of the opinion that this fear
“is not entirely ungrounded. Therefore, I cannot understand, why only Muslims in BAMF get to decide whether or not Christians, who fled from radical Muslims, get the right to stay in the Federal Republic of Germany.”
When asked to comment, a spokesperson for BAMF seemed to miss the point when she declared that:
“Constitutionally, women are allowed to wear a headscarf in their place of work, and the employer can only limit that right when there are objective grounds to do so, for example, health and safety issues, when it is detrimental to the peace in the working environment etc.”
Bosbach is not convinced by this line of reasoning:
“Apparently, it is not an ‘objective ground’ for BAMF, when asylum-applicants fear, that those doing the interviews and making the decisions at BAMF do not view their application in a way that is unprejudiced, neutral and free from preconceived ideas. I can’t follow their reasoning.”
The Ministery of Internal Affairs meanwhile, appears to agree with the BAMF. It simply does not consider the headscarf, unlike the Christian cross, to be “a religious symbol in and of itself.” Only in context can it have a comparable meaning. And even that is not considered a problem, as there is no law or regulation against the wearing of religious symbols by civil servants.
The Iraqi family has been urged by Bosbach to make a complaint against the BAMF’s decision. But according to him, they’re afraid that “their complaint will again be judged by someone wearing a headscarf.”

DEUTSCHLAND ASYL VON CHRISTEN
Bosbach kritisiert Kopftuch-Praxis beim BAMF
Von Manuel Bewarder | Stand: 17.02.2017
Vor ein paar Tagen traf Wolfgang Bosbach in seinem Wahlkreis in Nordrhein-Westfalen eine Familie, die Asyl in Deutschland beantragt hatte. Die Menschen berichteten ihm davon, dass sie als Christen aus dem Irak geflüchtet waren, aus Angst vor gewaltbereiten Islamisten. Bosbach, der sich als Innenpolitiker schon lange mit dem Thema Asyl beschäftigt, hörte zu.
Schließlich erzählten sie ihm von den Stunden, als sie ihren Asylantrag in einer der vielen Außenstellen des Bundesamtes für Migration und Flüchtlinge (BAMF) stellten. Den Irakern saß demnach beim Stellen des Antrags eine BAMF-Mitarbeiterin mit Kopftuch gegenüber. Ausgerechnet sie also sollte darüber entscheiden, ob die Christen hierzulande einen Schutzstatus erhalten werden.
Insgesamt rund 97.000 Iraker stellten im vergangenen Jahr einen Asylantrag in Deutschland. Der Irak ist damit eines der Hauptherkunftsländer. Im Monat Januar waren 64,6 Prozent der Asylanträge von Irakern erfolgreich. Die Familie, die mit Wolfgang Bosbach sprach, wurde jedoch abgelehnt. Die Iraker erzählten ihm, dass sie sich benachteiligt fühlten, weil ausgerechnet über ihren Antrag jemand mit Kopftuch zu entscheiden hatte.
Wolfgang Bosbach kann das nachvollziehen. Wenn diese Christen ihr „Verfolgungsschicksal einer Kopftuch tragenden Muslima schildern müssen, dann habe ich Verständnis für die Besorgnis der Antragsteller, dass über ihren Antrag möglicherweise nicht ausschließlich objektiv und vorurteilsfrei entschieden werden könnte“, sagt der Innenexperte.

Vaccine news – CDC Knew Its Vaccine Program Was Exposing Children to Dangerous Mercury Levels Since 1999

World-famous scientist issues warning about genetically modified vaccines
Here’s a look at just some of the genetically modified vaccines on the market today — and the risks we know about:
RotaTeq: This is supposed to protect babies from rotavirsues, and lots of kids get three doses before they even reach six months of age. But it’s actually made from a cross between cow and human DNA, and clinical trials found that infants are twice as likely to suffer seizures within the first two weeks after they get the vaccine.
Flucelvax: This new flu jab is being marketed like crazy this time of year. But what they’re not telling you is that it was actually made by combining human flu strains with kidney cells from a cocker spaniel! And while Flucelvax has only been around for a couple years, we already know that injecting ourselves with dog DNA is bad news. The vaccine nearly doubles your risk of a painful muscle condition called myalgia.
HPV vaccines, like Gardasil: I’ve told you stories about healthy, young girls who ended up paralyzed, unable to feed themselves and incapable of even attending school shortly after getting these shots. And currently, Virginia, Rhode Island and the District of Columbia require a Gardasil shot just to attend school.
And there are a whole bunch of new genetically-spliced recombinant vaccines coming down the pike, including one for measles.
Every time scientists try to warn us about the dangers of vaccines, the mainstream bends over backwards to call them quacks. But, trust me, nobody is saying that about Stephen Hawking.

Stephen Hawking Says the Human Race is in Danger and it’s our Own Fault
I feel so smart today. It isn’t often that the scientific merit of my ideas is confirmed by Stephen Hawking.   Today, there is an article in The Guardian, reposted in the MSN news, titled, “Most threats to humans come from science and technology, warns Hawking”. Excerpt:
“Speaking to the Radio Times ahead of the BBC Reith Lecture, in which he will explain the science of black holes, Hawking said most of the threats humans now face come from advances in science and technology, such as nuclear weapons and genetically engineered viruses.”
Genetically engineered viruses? Where have I heard that before? Oh, that’s what drug companies put into vaccines that doctors, nurses and pharmacists inject directly into and/or put in the mouths of people – vaccines for illnesses that include Hepatitis B, HPV, flu, and rotavirus.
The vaccine for Hepatitis B was the first to be made from a genetically engineered virus as announced in this New York Times article from July 1986 (please see – the reader will appreciate the historical significance). Note who, in 1986, the Hepatitis B vaccine was recommended for:
Dr. Young recommended vaccinations with either hepatitis vaccine for dental and medical workers, susceptible homosexuals and drug users, the newborn children of infected women, and, among other groups, travelers to parts of the world where hepatitis B is rampant, such as southeast Asia, sub-Saharan Africa, and parts of the Middle East.
That was a couple of years before they got the no doubt economically motivated crazy idea to assault every baby born in this country with the full series of this genetically modified concoction, the first dose of which would be given by their decree when the baby is in medical custody, in hospital, within 12 hours of birth.

ALUMINUM contained in vaccines is a metalloestrogen
Study – Metalloestrogens: an emerging class of inorganic xenoestrogens with potential to add to the oestrogenic burden of the human breast.
J Appl Toxicol. 2006 May-Jun;26(3):191-7.
Abstract
Many compounds in the environment have been shown capable of binding to cellular oestrogen receptors and then mimicking the actions of physiological oestrogens. The widespread origin and diversity in chemical structure of these environmental oestrogens is extensive but to date such compounds have been organic and in particular phenolic or carbon ring structures of varying structural complexity. Recent reports of the ability of certain metal ions to also bind to oestrogen receptors and to give rise to oestrogen agonist responses in vitro and in vivo has resulted in the realisation that environmental oestrogens can also be inorganic and such xenoestrogens have been termed metalloestrogens. This report highlights studies which show metalloestrogens to include aluminium, antimony, arsenite, barium, cadmium, chromium (Cr(II)), cobalt, copper, lead, mercury, nickel, selenite, tin and vanadate. The potential for these metal ions to add to the burden of aberrant oestrogen signalling within the human breast is discussed.

13 Year-Old Boy Permanently Disabled from Chicken Pox Vaccine Wins His Case in Vaccine Court
A young man was recently awarded compensation in the United States Court of Federal Claims Vaccine Court, for injuries he sustained after being administered the hepatitis A and varicella vaccinations in 2009.  After five long years of litigation, Health and Human Services (HHS), the Respondent in all vaccine injury cases, conceded that the varicella vaccination did in fact cause RD’s vaccine injury, transverse myelitis, which has left him a tetraplegic.
In November 2014, HHS conceded that the vaccination caused RD’s injuries.  Even with this concession, his case continued for another year in the damages phase, during which time the parties continued to negotiate the amount of damages that RD would receive for his injuries.  Although he was compensated for his suffering and injuries, the monetary award will never compensate for the lifelong effects this young man is suffering from his vaccine injury.
Five Long Years
RD was only 13 when his life changed forever.  At a routine well-child visit in 2009, the doctor informed RD’s parents that he was due to receive the hepatitis A and varicella vaccinations.  His parents complied with the doctor’s order and RD received the vaccinations.
RD’s mother explained that, at that time in RD’s state, only one dose of varicella vaccine was required and RD had already received one dose of that vaccine.  This second dose that was administered to RD at this well visit was determined to be the cause of RD’s horrific injuries, and it was not even required for him, which his family didn’t realize until it was too late.
About 14 days later, RD began to experience excruciating pain shooting through his body along with tingling, numbness and paralysis of his limbs. After extensive testing and many invasive procedures, RD was diagnosed with transverse myelitis.
RD’s parents filed a case in Vaccine Court, which took over five years to settle. RD and his family faced arduous heartbreak along the way. In the ruling, a representative from the United States Department of Justice agreed that “a preponderance of the evidence establishes that petitioner’s transverse myelitis was caused-in-fact by the administration of his August 12, 2009 varicella vaccine.” [1]
RD’s lawyer, Patricia Finn, stated that:
“The injuries that RD suffered from this vaccine are severe and lifelong.  Even though he has received a significant award as far as the awards in the Vaccine Court go, no amount of money will ever compensate him for what he has lost.
But RD is an amazing young man who has not let this injury stop him in any way.  He has graduated high school with his class, attends a Tier 1 college, and has great aspirations that I know he will achieve despite the challenges he faces because of his injuries.”
RD’s Immune System Attacked His Spine

Ignoring the agency’s own scientific evidence, the CDC’s webpage stubbornly insists that the “two types of mercury to which people may be exposed—methylmercury and ethylmercury—are very different.” The new CDC study directly contradicts this assertion, “There are many commonalities/similarities in the mechanisms of toxic action of methylmercury and ethylmercury …”
The study meticulously details identical toxicity pathways shared by both forms of mercury:
Both ethyl and methyl mercury cause DNA damage or impair DNA synthesis (Burke et al. 2006; Sharpe et al. 2012; Wu et al. 2008).
Both cause oxidative stress/creation of reactive oxygen species (Dreiem and Seegal 2007; Garg and Chang 2006; Myhre et al. 2003; Sharpe et al. 2012; Yin et al. 2007).
Both decrease glutathione activity, thus providing less protection from the oxidative stress caused by MeHg and EtHg (Carocci et al. 2014; Ndountse and Chan (2008); Choi et al. 1996; Franco et al. 2006; Mori et al. 2007; Muller et al. 2001; Ndountse and Chan 2008; Wu et al. 2008).
Both cause effects on cell division by damaging the spindle apparatus during mitosis (Burke et al. 2006; Castoldi et al. 2000; Gribble et al. 2005; Kim et al. 2007; Ou et al. 1999b; Machaty et al. 1999; Rodier et al. 1984).
Both MeHg and EtHg bind to the amino acid cysteine (Clarkson 1995; Wu et al. 2008).
Both MeHg and EtHg strongly inhibit the reacylation of arachidonic acid, thus inhibiting the reincorporation of this fatty acid into membrane phospholipids (Shanker et al. 2002; Verity et al. 1994; Zarini et al. 2006).
Both cause an increase in NOS, causing an overproduction of NO (Chen et al. 2003; Chuu et al. 2001; Shinyashiki et al. 1998).
Both disrupt glutamate homeostasis (Farina et al. 2003a, b; Manfroi et al. 2004; Mutkus et al. 2005; Yin et al. 2007).
Both alter intracellular calcium homeostasis (Elferink 1999; Hare et al. 1993;Kang et al. 2006; Limke et al. 2004b; Machaty et al. 1999; Marty and Atchison1997; Minnema et al. 1987; Peng et al. 2002; Sayers et al. 1993; Sirois and Atchison, 2000; Szalai et al. 1999; Tornquist et al. 1999; Zarini et al. 2006).
Both cause effects on receptor binding/neurotransmitter release involving one or more transmitters (Basu et al. 2008; Coccini et al. 2000; Cooper et al. 2003; Fonfria et al. 2001; Ida-Eto et al. 2011; Ndountse and Chan 2008; Yuan and Atchison 2003).
“This study is a nuclear bomb detonating over the CDC,” Boyd Haley, chairman emeritus of the University of Kentucky Chemistry Department, said. “It should be getting international, front page headlines.”

New Study Confirms That Mercury Is Linked to Autism
Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
Two new studies by international teams, including Egyptian scientists, have validated the link between autism and mercury.
In an article published in the journal Metabolic Brain Disease, a team of nine scientists from leading Egyptian universities and medical schools confirmed the causal role of mercury in the onset of autism.
The scientists determined the extent of mercury poisoning in children by measuring urinary excretion of organic compounds called porphyrins, which act as biomarkers for mercury toxicity. The researchers also measured blood levels of mercury and lead. The researchers found a strong relationship between mercury toxicity and the presence of autism and a direct correlation between levels of mercury toxicity and the severity of autism symptoms.
The scientists studied 100 children; 40 with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), 40 healthy individuals and 20 healthy siblings of ASD children. The results showed that the children with ASD had significantly higher mercury levels than healthy children and healthy siblings. Children with the highest mercury levels had the most severe autism symptoms.
At least six American studies have linked autism presence or severity to mercury exposure as determined by measuring urinary porphyrins. The first study, completed by Heyer et al. in 2012 (Autism Res 5:84) showed a correlation between the presence of autism and specific urinary porphyrins associated with mercury toxicity. This affirmed an earlier study by Kern et al. (2011, Pediatr Int 53:147) where specific porphyrins associated with mercury toxicity were significantly higher in ASD children as compared to non-autistic controls. Woods et al. (2010, Environ Health Perspect 118:1450) also saw disordered porphyrin metabolism in autistic kids which was not observed in non-autistic control children. This again suggested increased mercury toxicity associated with autism and autism spectrum disorder.

Study – Altered urinary porphyrins and mercury exposure as biomarkers for autism severity in Egyptian children with autism spectrum disorder
Abstract
Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a complex neurodevelopmental disorder that affects social, communication, and behavioral development. Recent evidence supported but also questioned the hypothetical role of compounds containing mercury (Hg) as contributors to the development of ASD. Specific alterations in the urinary excretion of porphyrin-containing ring catabolites have been associated with exposure to Hg in ASD patients. In the present study, the level of urinary porphyrins, as biomarkers of Hg toxicity in children with ASD, was evaluated, and its correlation with severity of the autistic behavior further explored. A total of 100 children was enrolled in the present study. They were classified into three groups: children with ASD (40), healthy controls (40), and healthy siblings of the ASD children (20). Children with ASD were diagnosed using DSM-IV-TR, ADI-R, and CARS tests. Urinary porphyrins were evaluated within the three groups using high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), after plasma evaluation of mercury (Hg) and lead (Pb) in the same groups. Results showed that children with ASD had significantly higher levels of Hg, Pb, and the porphyrins pentacarboxyporphyrin, coproporphyrin, precoproporphyrin, uroporphyrins, and hexacarboxyporphyrin compared to healthy controls and healthy siblings of the ASD children. However, there was no significant statistical difference in the level of heptacarboxyporphyrin among the three groups, while a significant positive correlation between the levels of coproporphyrin and precoproporphyrin and autism severity was observed. Mothers of ASD children showed a higher percentage of dental amalgam restorations compared to the mothers of healthy controls suggesting that high Hg levels in children with ASD may relate to the increased exposure to Hg from maternal dental amalgam during pregnancy and lactation. The results showed that the ASD children in the present study had increased blood Hg and Pb levels compared with healthy control children indicating that disordered porphyrin metabolism might interfere with the pathology associated with the autistic neurologic phenotype. The present study indicates that coproporphyrin and precoproporhyrin may be utilized as possible biomarkers for heavy metal exposure and autism severity in children with ASD.

CDC Knew Its Vaccine Program Was Exposing Children to Dangerous Mercury Levels Since 1999
Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and Lyn Redwood, RN, MSN

Uncovered documents show that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) knew that infant vaccines were exposing American children to mercury far in excess of all federal safety guidelines since 1999. The documents, created by a FDA consulting toxicologist, show how federal regulators concealed the dangerous impacts and lied to the public.
PDF source
In 1997, Congress passed the FDA Modernization Act. A provision of that statute required the FDA to “compile a list of drugs that contain intentionally introduced mercury compounds, and provide a quantitative and qualitative analysis of the mercury compounds on the list.” In response, manufacturers reported the use of the mercury-based preservative, thimerosal, in more than 30 licensed vaccines.
FDA’s Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research (CBER) was responsible for adding up the cumulative exposure to mercury from infant vaccines, a simple calculation that, astonishingly, had never been performed by either the FDA or the CDC. When the agency finally performed that basic calculation, the regulators realized that a six month-old infant who received thimerosal-preserved vaccines following the recommended CDC vaccine schedule would have received a jaw dropping 187.5 micrograms of mercury.
Instead of immediately ordering the removal of thimerosal, FDA officials circled the wagons treating the public health emergency as a public relations problem. Peter Patriarca, then director of the FDA Division of Viral Products, warned his fellow bureaucrats that hasty removal of thimerosal from vaccines would:
” … raise questions about FDA being ‘asleep at the switch’ for decades by allowing a potentially hazardous compound to remain in many childhood vaccines, and not forcing manufacturers to exclude it from new products. It will also raise questions about various advisory bodies regarding aggressive recommendations for use. We must keep in mind that the dose of ethylmercury was not generated by “rocket science.” Conversion of the percentage thimerosal to actual micrograms of mercury involves ninth grade algebra. What took the FDA so long to do the calculations? Why didn’t CDC and the advisory bodies do these calculations when they rapidly expanded the childhood immunization schedule?”
The agency consulted with experts in the field of toxicology to better understand the potential impact of these exposure levels. One consultant was Barry Rumack, MD. Dr. Rumack, at the time, had a private consulting practice, Rumack Consulting, where he offered “toxicologic and pharmacologic evaluation of drugs, biological and potentially toxic or hazardous agents for government and industry.” After creating several scenarios based on infants’ ages and weights, Dr. Rumack modeled blood and body burden levels in 1999.

Missouri Bill Would Ban Mercury Vaccines; First Step to Nullify Federal Policy in Practice
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (Jan. 31, 2017) – A Missouri House bill would ban public health clinics from administering vaccines that contain mercury or any other metal put into the vaccine for preservation purposes, contradicting approved federal policy.
House Bill 331 (HB331) was introduced by Rep. Lynn Morris (R-Nixa) to mitigate concerns regarding vaccine safety. With the exception of health emergencies determined by the Department of Health & Senior Services with concurrence from the governor, the following provision would apply:
Beginning August 28, 2018, no vaccine containing mercury or other metal for preservation or other purpose shall be administrated to a child or adult in a public health clinic in Missouri.
HB331 begins the process of nullifying potential vaccine mandates, which generally have their basis in federal recommendations or guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Although these federal rules are not technically binding, they often influence policy-makers and individuals at the local and state levels to adopt coercive mandates regarding mercury-laced vaccines and other toxic substances.
By taking the rule-making power back into their own hands, the state of Missouri can disconnect from federal control and restore its sovereignty on this key issue.
NECESSITY
Measures such as HB331 push back against federal narratives regarding immunizations. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) downplays concerns regarding the use of thimerosal, a preservative containing mercury. They even admit on their own website that mercury is still being used to preserve certain vaccines:
Thimerosal, which is approximately 50% mercury by weight, has been one of the most widely used preservatives in vaccines… While the use of mercury-containing preservatives has declined in recent years with the development of new products formulated with alternative or no preservatives, thimerosal has been used in some immune globulin preparations, anti-venins, skin test antigens, and ophthalmic and nasal products, in addition to certain vaccines.
As the FDA downplays the concerns related to thimerosal and mercury in vaccines, whistle-blowers are singing a different tune. The National Vaccine Information Center, a non-profit watchdog organization, reports that the threat is still alarming – especially pertaining to infants:
Most infants are still routinely given Thimerosal-containing influenza vaccine even though there are Thimerosal-free and vaccines with trace amounts of Thimerosal. Infants receiving a Thimerosal-containing influenza vaccine are dosed at 6 months with 12.5 mcg of ethyl mercury and at 7 months with an additional 12.5 mcg. Adult Thimerosal-containing vaccines contain roughly 25mcg.
The CDC aids the FDA in promulgating their point of view. Although the CDC attempts to maintain a veneer of independence and credibility, there are facts showing that narrative to be false. The CDC Foundation boasts that it helps the CDC “do more, faster.” It is able to do this because the CDC Foundation receives annual funding from a host of corporations including Pharmaceutical giants Merck, Roche, and Emergent BioSolutions Inc.

“This is an area where confusion and concern developed needlessly. Few things in life are as cut-and-dried as the fact that silver is completely safe when used within normal limits. The U.S. government provides a very clear guideline for the safe oral intake of silver. We’ve simply provided an easy method for applying that guideline to the safe use of any silver supplement product.”
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has a guideline called the Reference Dose (RfD) for safe limits on daily intake of silver. The EPA’s RfD guideline is specifically intended to keep a person’s intake of silver below the level that could possibly discolor the skin.
Says Jeffrey Blumer, M.D., Ph.D., director of the Center for Drug Research, the world’s largest clinical research center for pediatric drugs, and former director of the Greater Cleveland Poison Control Center:
“Common substances like table salt and aspirin are harmless with normal use, but excessive intake can become toxic and even life-threatening. With normal responsible usage, silver supplements are entirely harmless to humans.”
The Silver Safety Pyramid is based on the Committee’s Silver Safety Guideline, which recommends that a person’s intake of silver from dietary supplements be limited to 25 percent of the EPA’s recommended limit for total daily intake of silver.
It utilizes the Silver Safety Calculation, a simple mathematical formula that enables a person to easily determine how much to take of any silver-containing product to remain within the safety guidelines.

Study : Simultaneous sudden infant death syndrome.

J Forensic Leg Med. 2007 Feb;14(2):87-91.
Abstract
The simultaneous sudden deaths of twins rarely occur and therefore it has received limited attention in the medical literature. When the deaths of the twins meet the defined criteria for sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) independently and take place within the same 24 h range it can be called as simultaneous SIDS (SSIDS). The case(s): Twin girls (3.5-month-old) were found dead by their mother in their crib, both in supine position. The infants were identical twins and delivered at a hospital by cesarean section. Both infants were healthy and did not have any serious medical history. Two days prior to the incident, the twins had received the second dose of oral polio, DPT and the first dose of hepatitis B vaccines and they had fever on the first day of the vaccination and been given teaspoonful of acetaminophen. Death scene investigation, judicial investigation, parental assessment, macroscopic and microscopic autopsy findings and the toxicological analysis did not yield any specific cause of death. The case(s) were referred to a supreme board composed of multidisciplinary medical professionals at the Institute of Forensic Medicine, Ministry of Justice, in Istanbul. The Board decided that the available data was consistent with SIDS. These SIDS case(s) are presented because twin SIDS are rare and this is the first time that a simultaneous twin SIDS have been reported in Turkey. Simultaneous SIDS cases have many implications regarding definition, diagnosis and medico-legal approach.

Study : A positive association found between autism prevalence and childhood vaccination uptake across the U.S. population.

J Toxicol Environ Health A. 2011;74(14):903-16. doi: 10.1080/15287394.2011.573736.

Abstract
The reason for the rapid rise of autism in the United States that began in the 1990s is a mystery. Although individuals probably have a genetic predisposition to develop autism, researchers suspect that one or more environmental triggers are also needed. One of those triggers might be the battery of vaccinations that young children receive. Using regression analysis and controlling for family income and ethnicity, the relationship between the proportion of children who received the recommended vaccines by age 2 years and the prevalence of autism (AUT) or speech or language impairment (SLI) in each U.S. state from 2001 and 2007 was determined. A positive and statistically significant relationship was found: The higher the proportion of children receiving recommended vaccinations, the higher was the prevalence of AUT or SLI. A 1% increase in vaccination was associated with an additional 680 children having AUT or SLI. Neither parental behavior nor access to care affected the results, since vaccination proportions were not significantly related (statistically) to any other disability or to the number of pediatricians in a U.S. state. The results suggest that although mercury has been removed from many vaccines, other culprits may link vaccines to autism. Further study into the relationship between vaccines and autism is warranted.

Autism-Vaccine Theory Yet to Be Debunked
Contrary to the popular misconception, the autism-vaccine link has never been disproven. The autism-vaccine debate has been going around for decades, yet until recently, no official safety study has been done by the CDC itself. Many other studies done had either conflict of interest or insufficient data (most importantly, the CDC admits that a study comparing vaccinated versus unvaccinated children has never been done).
In 2004 when the CDC finally concluded a long-term study on vaccinations and autism in children, the results were not what they expected. They found a potential link between the two, primarily in African American boys, and decided to hide the information from the public.
Their study was published, but the significant information was not, instead it was literally thrown into a huge garbage can.
This came to light in 2014 when a senior scientist at the CDC, Dr. William Thompson came forward, admitting to what they did. Florida U.S. Representative Bill Posey spoke about it to the House of Representatives urging for an official investigation, but not much has been done since.
Healthy Children Can Become Horribly Sick After Vaccinations
For many, these stories are nothing but anecdotes, but for thousands of families who have gone through this (and doctors who witnessed it), it is a real tragedy. More people are coming forward with eerily similar stories. Seemingly healthy children become sick after receiving vaccinations (some within hours), and many never recover.
Public health officials and the CDC say that vaccines are necessary for public health, pointing to their effect on disease outbreaks such as polio, measles and other preventable diseases. But critics say they’re unwilling to fairly study or even discuss the other side of the question: vaccine injured people.
One of the reasons we might not hear about them is that the only place the affected families can go to report injuries is to VAERS, Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System, created by the CDC and FDA.
The site welcomes its visitors with: “Have you or your child had a reaction following vaccination?”
After that, families can ask for monetary compensation from what many call the vaccine court, an administrative procedure, which is run by a government program called 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act using government-funded science. The act was passed in large part because of lobbying from pharmaceutical companies, which now cannot be sued for anything related to the vaccines they make — a clear conflict of interest.
Most importantly, these hearings are not open to the public or press, so we rarely hear about them.

Some stories do find a way to get noticed. In 1994 the Bridges family filed a suit through the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, after their son Porter became autistic. In 2011 they won the case and received about $7 million. The court concluded that a combination of childhood vaccines caused Porter to have encephalopathy – brain damage.
(Porter’s story was thoroughly discussed in the movie Bought, a film bringing light to the money involved in the pharmaceutical industry and its effect in making vaccines).
Injuries such as encephalopathy are controversial because the defendants may say the child does not have autism, they have encephalopathy, and the link between autism and vaccines is therefore “disproved.”
But autism spectrum conditions have grown to include many symptoms, and the main one is brain developmental issues. Whether in the future, studies will be able to classify encephalopathy or brain damage and autism as the same thing, it’s worth noting that the two have many identical symptoms: confusion, memory issues, muscle weakness, twitching, trembling, difficulty speaking, seizures, and even coma.
And encephalopathy is a common vaccine injury. The VAERS site lists it as a possible result of the DTP shot (noticeable within 72 hours) and MMR (within 5-15 days).
One of the most famous MMR court cases is that of Bailey Banks. The court concluded that childhood vaccinations caused Acute Disseminated Encephalomyelitis or ADEM (intense brain swelling).
The true numbers of injured are hard to count, as many families never report them or ask for compensation knowing that it might take up to two decades to see the results.
Vaccine Pamphlets Themselves List Many Serious Side-Effects
Every vaccine comes with a long insert of side-effects, which are rarely shown to patients. And if one were to ask, doctors have been known to get upset.
Looking at an insert from any vaccine paints a similar picture. This is an insert for M-M-R II vaccine (measles, mumps, and rubella) made by Merck, one of the first biggest pharmaceutical companies.
First of all, the safety of this particular vaccine has been determined by studies on a small number of children, 284 total.
The vaccine has also never been studied for its effect on the development of the fetus in pregnant women.
The safety of this vaccine, when given before the age of 12 months, has not been established. It is also not 100% effective, like all vaccines.
Patients who may experience an adverse reaction are instructed to report it to VAERS.
The list of the adverse reactions reported is long, but what is particularly important are injuries to the nervous system:
Encephalitis; encephalopathy; measles inclusion body encephalitis (MIBE); subacute sclerosing panencephalitis (SSPE); Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS); acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM); transverse myelitis; febrile convulsions; afebrile convulsions or seizures; ataxia; polyneuritis; polyneuropathy; ocular palsies; paresthesia.
In the 2016 VAERS report (not yet complete), encephalopathy is mentioned many times, as well as autism (mentioned 97 times).
Patients’ families reported: “loss of speech, regression from previous milestones, a light went out from child’s eyes, fever, lethargy, refusing to eat, encephalopathy.”
“Difficulty breathing, fever, hive-like rashes. Currently being assessed for Autism spectrum, speech loss, occupational therapy, etc.”
“Insomnia, anxiety, paranoia, (GABA) seizures, tics…legs would suddenly give out and she would fall, acne, headaches, stomach aches, dizziness, regression, anemia, mood swings, emotional lability, cognitive decline, brain inflammation.”

If only half of America is properly vaccinated, where are the epidemics?
The argument for herd immunity was actually developed out of observations of natural immunity, not vaccination. Statisticians observed that populations were protected when sufficient members contracted the wild form of a disease, and subsequently acquired lifelong immunity. With vaccines, however, evidence shows that unvaccinated children may catch infectious diseases from vaccinated children. What is true of natural immunity is not true of vaccination.
The herd immunity argument has always been inconsistent. On the one hand, the theory goes, people who cannot receive vaccines for whatever reason are protected from the disease through a high level of vaccination in the rest of society. On the other hand, the theory continues, parents who don’t vaccinate their children put the health of wider society at risk. How can a handful of people not getting vaccinated be protected from getting sick, while at the same time being so disease-ridden that they make others sick? This doesn’t make sense.
While herd immunity may not exist, herd mentality most definitely does. Health authorities, media commentators, and schools and their parent–teacher associations waste no opportunity in perpetuating this myth. Proponents have done such a thorough job of convincing the public that a parent who questions it is treated like someone who thinks the earth is flat or believes climate change is a conspiracy. On the contrary: an unprejudiced view of the science about vaccines, and an examination of history, clearly show that the herd immunity theory is—and always has been—flawed.
Vaccines may have a place in our medical arsenal, but they are not the silver bullet they’re portrayed to be. Year after year the pharmaceutical industry, looking for lucrative new profit centers, churns out new vaccines. They use pseudo-science to convince the public that these products are safe and effective, and they use public shaming to convince the citizenry that non-compliance is a public health threat. This entire racket completely falls apart with a close examination of the herd immunity myth. Until we are honest in our assessment of both the safety and efficacy of vaccines, kids will continue to be hurt, rights will continue to be trampled, and mythology will continue to trump science.

The Vaccine Did It: Mutated MMR Mumps Virus in the Brain of a Child Caused His Death, British Researchers Confirm
Posted on:

The Vaccine Did It
A toddler who developed severe neurological symptoms including blindness associated with chronic encephalitis and died following MMR vaccination was found to have vaccine-derived mumps virus in his brain, a new study reports.
Published in the current issue of the journal, Acta Neuropathologica, the study is the first of its kind to conclusively demonstrate chronic brain damage in the form of “panencephalitis” due to a vaccine-derived strain of the mumps virus. In light of a recent epidemic of mumps in highly vaccinated populations, the research raises questions about the dangers of live vaccine virus mutations and about public health claims that the MMR is a completely safe and effective vaccine without serious side effects.
MMR, BRAIN INFECTION AND DEATH
The study describes an 18-month old infant who was diagnosed with Severe Combined Immunodeficiency Disease (SCID) — a serious immune system defect that may follow infection — four months after he received the triple Measles Mumps Rubella vaccine that contains live viruses.
The baby was treated for the illness but six months later became ill again with fever, rash, diarrhoea, lethargy and seizures. MRI scans of his brain showed evidence of encephalitis — brain inflammation due to infection.
The toddler was treated with antimicrobials, antivirals and steroids and sent home on anticonvulsant drugs.  Over the next few months, behavioural problems became obvious, his hearing was impaired and his speech and language were delayed. A year later, by then four years old, he was still suffering from seizures and he became increasingly lethargic, disoriented and agitated. His walking was increasingly uncoordinated and he began to lose his eyesight.
A repeat MRI scan of the boy’s brain revealed abnormalities and a brain biopsy was taken at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children in London. It revealed neuronal death and evidence of central nervous system damage and chronic inflammation. Despite aggressive treatment, his seizures increased, he became weak on his left side, went blind and the five-year-old died seven weeks later.
VACCINE VIRUS CONFIRMED
Spinal fluid and urine samples collected during the boy’s last hospitalisation, as well as RNA re-extracted from his brain biopsy, were sent to the Public Health England Virus Reference Laboratory for sequencing.
Researchers, led by Sofia Morfopoulou of the Division of Infection and Immunity, University College London, and at the National Institute for Biological Standards and Control, used deep sequencing technology to identify the MuV -JL5 vaccine virus strain in the boy’s brain biopsy which was negative for all other viruses.
Genetic Drift and Outbreaks
Mutations in the mumps vaccine virus from that in the batch of the vaccine the boy had received were also detected. The study refers to a 2015 study confirming “genetic instability” of mumps vaccine virus that leads to “genetic drift” between different vaccine batches and may explain why some mumps vaccines induce more serious adverse reactions than others, especially when they are grown on different media.
This science may also explain why the mumps vaccine is failing. A recent outbreak among more than 1,600 mostly vaccinated people in Arkansas has public health officers there admitting that the vaccine isn’t protecting against emerging new strains of the virus.
It’s part of a growing phenomenon that scientists are reporting in many vaccines called “sero-conversion” – when vaccines diminish the strain of a virus they are targeting, but another strain of the same virus blooms — just as antibiotics wipe out bacterial infections but leave antibiotic-resistant superbugs to thrive.

Study : The administration of intranasal live attenuated influenza vaccine induces changes in the nasal microbiota and nasal epithelium gene expression profiles
Background
Viral infections such as influenza have been shown to predispose hosts to increased colonization of the respiratory tract by pathogenic bacteria and secondary bacterial pneumonia. To examine how viral infections and host antiviral immune responses alter the upper respiratory microbiota, we analyzed nasal bacterial composition by 16S ribosomal RNA (rRNA) gene sequencing in healthy adults at baseline and at 1 to 2 weeks and 4 to 6 weeks following instillation of live attenuated influenza vaccine or intranasal sterile saline. A subset of these samples was submitted for microarray host gene expression profiling.
Results
We found that live attenuated influenza vaccination led to significant changes in microbial community structure, diversity, and core taxonomic membership as well as increases in the relative abundances of Staphylococcus and Bacteroides genera (both p < 0.05). Hypergeometric testing for the enrichment of gene ontology terms in the vaccinated group reflected a robust up-regulation of type I and type II interferon-stimulated genes in the vaccinated group relative to controls. Translational murine studies showed that poly I:C administration did in fact permit greater nasal Staphylococcus aureus persistence, a response absent in interferon alpha/beta receptor deficient mice.
Conclusions
Collectively, our findings demonstrate that although the human nasal bacterial community is heterogeneous and typically individually robust, activation of a type I interferon (IFN)-mediated antiviral response may foster the disproportionate emergence of potentially pathogenic species such as S. aureus.

Highlights
•    Mumps vaccines contain live attenuated viruses that are manufactured in cell substrates.
•    The production of the JL-CK vaccine in primary canine kidney cells is atypical.
•    Genetic changes introduced by different cell types have not been investigated.
•    JL-CK vaccine contains a unique mix of mumps viruses that have acquired a number of mutations.
•    Growth in cell or animal substrates dramatically alters the population dynamic of JL-CK.
Abstract
Mumps vaccines are live attenuated viruses. They are known to vary in effectiveness, degree of attenuation and adverse event profile. However, the underlying reasons are poorly understood. We studied two closely related mumps vaccines which originate from the same attenuated Jeryl Lynn-5 strain but have different efficacies. Jeryl Lynn-Canine Kidney (JL-CK), produced on primary canine kidney cells, is less effective than RIT4385, which is produced on chicken embryo fibroblasts. JL-CK and RIT4385 could be distinguished by a number of in vitro and in vivo properties. JL-CK produced heterogeneous, generally smaller plaques than RIT4385, but gave 100-fold higher titres when grown in cells and showed a higher degree of hydrocephalus formation in neonatal rat brains. Sanger sequencing of JL-CK identified 14 regions of heterogeneity throughout the genome. Plaque purification of JL-CK demonstrated the presence of five different Jeryl Lynn-5 variants encompassing the 14 mutations. One JL-CK mutation was associated with a small plaque phenotype, the effects of the others in vitro or in vivo were less clear. Only 4% of the JL-CK population corresponded to the parental Jeryl Lynn-5 strain. Next generation sequencing of JL-CK and virus before and after growth in cell lines or neonatal rat brains showed that propagation in vitro or in vivo altered the population dramatically. Our findings indicate that growth of JL-CK in primary canine kidney cells resulted in the selection of a mixture of mumps virus variants that have different biological properties compared to the parent Jeryl Lynn-5 virus. We also report three previously unknown heterogenic regions within the N gene of the RIT4385 vaccine.
