“We set out to make a movie, now we’re making history…
To watch every major newspaper tell people not to see a movie, a movie they had never seen, is an unprecedented moment in this country. When has that ever happened?
Every major newspaper is saying don’t go see a movie they haven’t watched themselves. What’s next, are they going to tell us to start burning books in the streets? We’ve never seen anything like this.
This is supposed to be a country based on freedom of expression, and our entire media that [claims to] represent speech and expression, is telling everybody to shut down free speech. Journalism is officially DEAD in America.
We have a whistleblower at the CDC who is still sitting at the CDC, an awarded scientist, who is being protected by whistleblower status, and the media is saying we are making things up. They say they’ve debunked the whistleblower, but you can’t debunk someone who hasn’t had his day in court, just like you can’t review a movie you haven’t seen.”

Scottish Mother and Science Officer Warns School Teachers of HPV Vaccine Risks
Mrs. Caran Dynan, Mother of a Vaccine Injured Daughter, Kilsyth, Scotland, Science Officer and political activist for AHVID has sent this letter to many Schools in Scotland and England to raise awareness that school girls are becoming very ill following HPV vaccination and are missing out on so much of their education.
Human Papillomavirus Vaccination
With regards to the Human Papillomavirus Vaccination administered in your school, I would like to raise your awareness to the real possible side effects of this vaccine, as well as the lack of studies and safety tests carried out on this Vaccine.
To make it clear, I am writing this letter from the stance of a mother whose perfectly healthy (apart from slight hay fever) daughter’s life was completely altered after receiving Gardasil.
Very soon after receiving her first vaccination, her health started to decline, both mentally and physically, for what appeared to be no reason.
To cut a very lengthy story short, she has suffered over the past five years with the following conditions:
Irregular Heartbeat and Increased Heart Rate
Shortness of Breath
Complete Loss of Appetite
Extreme Fatigue/Irregular Sleeping Patterns
Inability to Stand/Walk for any period of time
Severe Social Anxiety
Numbness of Lower Legs/Feet
Brain fog/cognitive impairment
Inability to regulate body temperature General Feelings of Malaise
Please note that she never experienced any of these symptoms until October 2012, which is when she received the first vaccine.

Co-Author of Lancet MMR-Autism Study Exonerated on All Charges of Professional Misconduct
Dr. John Walker-Smith, considered the father of pediatric gastroenterology, has today been restored to his much-deserved reputation of high esteem. His appeal of the U.K. General Medical Council’s 2010 decision to remove his license for serious professional misconduct has been quashed in its entirety. This decision raises questions about the validity of the 2010 GMC proceeding in general.
The GMC proceeding was a multi-year, multi-million dollar prosecution against Drs. Wakefield, Walker-Smith, and Murch. It related to a controversial 1998 study published in The Lancet suggesting a possible link between autism, the measles-mumps-rubella vaccine and bowel disease. Based on the GMC prosecution, both Drs. Walker-Smith and Wakefield lost their licenses to practice and the Lancet article was officially retracted. The GMC alleged that the physician-authors had failed to obtain necessary ethical clearances and that they had subjected the twelve children in the study to unnecessary medical procedures.
Justice Mitting, reviewing Dr. Walker-Smith’s appeal in the High Court of Justice, Queen’s Bench Division, Administrative Court, found that the GMC’s conclusions were “based on inadequate and superficial reasoning” and that “the finding of serious professional misconduct and the sanction of erasure are both quashed.”

Repeal Immunity for Drug Companies Against Vaccine Injuries
Why should the drug companies be above the law? If vaccines are safe, there would be no need to grant the drug companies immunity. In 1986 Congress gave the drug companies immunity against all lawsuits from vaccine related injuries. The Federal Government is now paying out billions in damages to some parents whose children have been hurt by vaccines. While the drug companies continue to rack up huge profits, most families continue to pay for the damages with their own money.
Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.: Doing the math on meningitis vaccinations
By Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
Posted: 06/09/2015 07:55:00 PM MDT
This past Thursday, the University of Colorado-Boulder student government passed a resolution asking the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) to recommend meningococcal vaccines for all incoming college students. ACIP will consider CU-Boulder’s resolution on June 24. ACIP’s first agenda topic will be the debate over recommending the meningococcal B vaccines for adolescents and college students.
With billions of dollars in annual revenue at stake, vaccine makers are pushing meningitis vaccine mandates across the country. Vaccine issues are always complex, but advocates of the meningitis mandate should consider some simple math.
Meningococcal meningitis is exceedingly rare. There were only about 390 cases in the U.S. last year. In a population of 319 million, that adds up to one case in 817,949 people. There were only three meningococcal meningitis cases in Colorado last year — one resulting in death. The CDC has approved three vaccines targeting the A, C, Y and W135 strains of meningitis: Menactra, Menveo and Menomune, which still contains significant mercury concentrations in multi-dose vials. These vaccines are effective in providing immunity to those strains of meningitis in only 85 percent of people who receive them.
Thirty percent of the meningitis cases are the B strain, which typically occur in college-aged kids and against which the three vaccines are completely ineffective.
The FDA recently approved two B strain meningococcal vaccines, Trumenba and Bexsero.Vaccine makers are pushing government officials to add them to the recommended schedule for the fall semester. Critics have faulted the government’s expedited safety and efficiency testing for the new B strain vaccines citing glaring lapses in safety protocols including the absence of inactive placebos. In addition, both new B vaccines are “pregnancy category B,” meaning that they should be administered to pregnant women only when necessary. Neither vaccine has been tested for carcinogenicity, mutagenicity or effects on male fertility.
According to their package inserts, Menactra and Menveo produce “serious adverse events” in 1 percent of recipients. Menomune, with its hefty mercury load, sickens 1.3 percent of those receiving it. According to the CDC Pink Book, 0.3 percent of those with “serious adverse events” from meningitis vaccines will die. So here is the math calculation that thoughtful student governments in Colorado must consider: If you inoculate Colorado’s 400,000 college students with the older vaccines, you can expect 4,000 serious adverse events and 12 dead. We do not yet know the effects of widespread vaccination of the hastily-expedited B vaccines, but according to their package inserts, about 2 percent of students who receive the B vaccine will be sickened or hospitalized with a serious adverse event. This could translate into an additional 8,000 sick students and 24 deaths, for a total of 12,000 sick and 36 dead in the attempt to possibly avert three meningitis cases.
Sanjay Gupta MD has to admit ON CNN that a Neurologist’s (yes a doctor’s) daughter’s autism was caused by vaccines.
I think it pains him… He says this is “very rare” in the video. Thoughts?
MILLIONS OF ITALIANS PROTEST NEWLY PROPOSED VACCINE MANDATE
For over a month Italians have been protesting in every city against a brutal proposed law that if approved will make 53 doses of vaccines mandatory.
Groundbreaking new study identifies vaccines as the most common source of adverse drug reactions in children, including anaphylaxis and death
Study reveals adverse drug reactions are more common for boys than girls, and infants are the most susceptible age group
Vaccines provide only artificial, temporary, typically inferior immunity compared to what your body receives from natural exposure to a disease
History offers little evidence that vaccines are responsible for eradicating disease even when “herd immunity” vaccination levels have been reached
After vaccines are introduced, new and more virulent strains tend to emerge, suggesting the entire vaccine-immunity paradigm is fatally flawed
By Dr. Mercola
A groundbreaking new drug safety study in Shanghai, China, provides some much needed information about the frequency of vaccine drug reactions among children.
Adverse drug reactions are a serious public health concern and one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality worldwide.1 More than a half million children are treated every year for adverse drug reactions in US outpatient clinics and emergency rooms.2
The Shanghai study, based on reported pediatric adverse drug reactions (ADRs) for 2009, found that 42 percent were caused by vaccines, with reactions ranging from mild skin rashes to deadly reactions like anaphylaxis and death. Of all the drugs causing adverse reactions among children, vaccines are the most commonly reported.3, 4
This study is particularly significant because the vast majority of reports came from physicians, pharmacists, and other health care providers. Less than three percent of the reports were from consumers.
Another safety report5 about pediatric drug reactions was just published by the Institute for Safe Medication Practices (ISMP) and lists the top 15 drugs causing serious adverse reactions in children.
Psychiatric drugs and analgesics (especially ibuprofen) figure prominently in their top 15 list. The report also mentions psychological side effects such as aggression and suicidal ideation as frequent symptoms from 10 of the 15 most commonly reported drugs.
The Price of Prevention: Vaccine Costs Are Soaring
By ELISABETH ROSENTHALJULY 2, 2014
SAN ANTONIO — There is little that Dr. Lindsay Irvin has not done for the children’s vaccines in her office refrigerator: She remortgaged her home to afford their rising prices. She packed them in ice chests and moved them when her office flooded this year. She pays a company to monitor the fridge in case the temperature rises.
“The security company can call me any time of the day or night so I can go save my vaccines,” said Dr. Irvin, a pediatrician. Those in the refrigerator recently cost $70,000, she said — “more than I paid for four years of medical school.”
Vaccination prices have gone from single digits to sometimes triple digits in the last two decades, creating dilemmas for doctors and their patients as well as straining public health budgets. Here in San Antonio and elsewhere, some doctors have stopped offering immunizations because they say they cannot afford to buy these potentially lifesaving preventive treatments that insurers often reimburse poorly, sometimes even at a loss.
Childhood immunizations are so vital to public health that the Affordable Care Act mandates their coverage at no out-of-pocket cost and they are generally required for school entry. Once a loss leader for manufacturers, because they are often more expensive to produce than conventional drugs, vaccines now can be very profitable.
Old vaccines have been reformulated with higher costs. New ones have entered the market at once-unthinkable prices. Together, since 1986, they have pushed up the average cost to fully vaccinate a child with private insurance to the age of 18 to $2,192 from $100, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Even with deep discounts, the costs for the federal government, which buys half of all vaccines for the nation’s children, have increased 15-fold during that period. The most expensive shot for young children in Dr. Irvin’s refrigerator is Prevnar 13, which prevents diseases caused by pneumococcal bacteria, from ear infections to pneumonia.
Vaccines may trigger autoimmune diseases
Apr 12, 2015
Anti-vaxxers were severely criticized following the Disneyland measles outbreak, but research shows their reasons for not wanting to vaccinate their children might be well-founded.
Nowadays, newborns are injected with as many as over 30 vaccines before the age of three, but the array of non-ingredients that are found in vaccines have been shown to be unsafe. Yehuda Shoenfeld, also known as the “Godfather of Autoimmunology” is an Israeli clinician who has spent over three decades studying the human immune system. According to a recent article published in the journal Pharmacological Research, the physician joined forces with some of his colleagues and concluded that vaccines [their ingredients, specifically aluminium] represent a significant contributor to the soaring global epidemic of autoimmune diseases. In the article, Dr Shoenfeld and his colleagues issued unprecedented guidelines identifying four categories of people who are most at risk for autoimmunity induced by vaccine.
An autoimmune disorder occurs when the immune system wrongly attacks and destroys healthy body tissue. There are currently over 80 different types of autoimmune disorders. The paper’s authors acknowledge that vaccines prevent infections that can cause autoimmunity, but they also accept conclusions issued by plenty of reports, namely that vaccines can also trigger autoimmunity. Autoimmune diseases which can occur post-vaccination are lupus, arthritis, diabetes mellitus and others, but “almost all types of vaccines have been reported to be associated with the onset of ASIA.”
ASIA is “a wide concept that includes any environmental factor which is demonstrated to trigger autoimmune conditions,” according to Ignasi Rodriguez-Pinto, autoimmunologist at the Barcelona Hospital Clinic. The umbrella term was first identified by Dr Shoenfeld in the Journal of Autoimmunology in 2011 and includes a large spectrum of neurological and immune-mediated phenomena observed following vaccine injections that result from exposure to ingredients such as aluminium. Dr Rodriguez-Pinto pointed out that vaccination for Hepatitis B can also trigger ASIA. The “Grandfather of Autoimmunology” wrote in the paper published in the journal Pharmacological Research that “throughout our lifetime, the normal immune system walks a fine line between preserving normal immune reactions and developing autoimmune diseases.”
Five Year Moratorium on Childhood Vaccines
Created by K.H. on July 03, 2017
American children are in crisis with an explosion of once-rare neurological problems like autism and seizures.
Recent scientific evidence has shown massive contamination of vaccines with unsuspected chemical and biological agents. Other evidence shows dramatic differences in in health outcomes between vaccinated and un-vaccinated children. In order to remedy this we ask the White House to:
ONE: Impose a five year moratorium on all childhood vaccines from birth to age eighteen.
TWO: Repeal the 1986 National Childhood vaccine injury Act and return vaccines to the traditional civil justice system.
THREE: Perform large scale studies of vaccinated and un-vaccinated children.
FOUR: Ban direct pharmaceutical advertising to consumers and allow such advertising only to medical professionals

Scientists Discover That Fasting Triggers Stem Cell Regeneration & Fights Cancer
A study published in Cell Stem Cell shows that cycles of prolonged fasting not only protect against immune system damage — a major side effect of chemotherapy — but also induce immune system regeneration, shifting stem cells from a dormant state to a state of self-renewal.
In both mice and a Phase 1 human clinical trial involving patients receiving chemotherapy, long periods of not eating significantly lowered white blood cell counts. In mice, fasting cycles then “flipped a regenerative switch,” changing the signaling pathways for hematopoietic stem cells, which are responsible for the generation of blood and immune systems, the research showed.
“We could not predict that prolonged fasting would have such a remarkable effect in promoting stem cell-based regeneration of the hematopoietic system.”
The study has major implications for healthier aging, in which immune system decline contributes to increased susceptibility to disease as people age. By outlining how prolonged fasting cycles — periods of no food for two to four days at a time over the course of six months — kill older and damaged immune cells and generate new ones, the research also has implications for chemotherapy tolerance and for those with a wide range of immune system deficiencies, including autoimmunity disorders.
Study – Saying No to Drugs: Fasting Protects Hematopoietic Stem Cells from Chemotherapy and Aging
Hospital CEO Wins Major Court Victory After Accusing CNN of False Reporting
by Rachel Stockman | 5:31 pm, February 15th, 2017
Those who accuse CNN and other mainstream media outlets of “fake news” will probably revel in a recent decision by a federal judge in Atlanta, Georgia. While Judge Orinda Evans didn’t all out declare that CNN was peddling in falsehoods, she did take aim at the network in an initial judgment in favor of a former hospital CEO who sued CNN accusing them of purposely skewing statistics to reflect poorly on a West Palm Beach hospital. Judge Evans didn’t mince words in her 18-page order allowing the case to move forward, and dismissing CNN’s attempt to get it thrown out of court.
Davide Carbone, former CEO of St. Mary’s Medical Center in West Palm Beach, filed a defamation lawsuit against CNN after they aired what he claims were a “series of false and defamatory news reports” regarding the infant mortality rate at the hospital. CNN’s report said the mortality rate was three times the national average. However, Mr. Carbone contends that CNN “intentionally” manipulated statistics to bolster their report. He also claims that CNN purposely ignored information that would look favorable to the hospital in order to sensationalize the story.
“In our case, we contended that CNN essentially made up its own standard in order to conduct an ‘apples to oranges’ comparison to support its false assertion that St. Mary’s mortality rate was 3 times higher than the national average. Accordingly, the case against CNN certainly fits the description of media-created ‘Fake News.’” said Carbone’s attorney L. Lin Wood, in a statement to LawNewz.com.
Wood says that as a result of CNN’s story Carbone lost his job and it became extremely difficult for him to find new employment in the field of hospital administration.
“False and defamatory accusations against real people have serious consequences. Neither St. Mary’s or Mr. Carbone did anything to deserve being the objects of the heinous accusation that they harmed or put babies and young children at risk for profit,” Wood said.
On Wednesday, Federal District Judge Orinda Evans ruled that the case could move forward, even ruling that she found that CNN may have acted with “actual malice” with the report — a standard necessary to prove a defamation claim.
“The Court finds these allegations sufficient to establish that CNN was acting recklessly with regard to the accuracy of its report, i.e., with ‘actual malice,” the order reads. CNN had tried to get the case dismissed.
We’ve reach out to CNN for comment, and will update this story accordingly.

Officials blamed the rush to withdraw deposits on a coordinated attempt by individuals to destabilize the banking system by spreading unfounded rumors via social media, emails and text messages.
“There is no cause or reason to give way to panic. There is no banking crisis, there is a crisis of trust and there is a criminal attack,” said Bulgaria’s President Rosen Plevneliev in a public address on Sunday after the arrests were made.
It all started roughly 10 days ago when messages began circulating warning people that the country’s financial system was unstable. Bulgaria’s Corporate Commercial Bank ran out of money and was placed under state control.
The collapse revived memories of a previous Bulgarian banking crash in the 1990s, and as the rumors kept coming another Bulgarian bank — First Investment Bank — was overwhelmed by people rushing to withdraw their savings.
That bank was forced to close temporarily on Friday after its branches and ATMs were drained.
In response, the central bank said over the weekend it would provide a credit line worth 3.3 billion Bulgarian lev ($2.3 billion) to the country’s banks to reassure people about the safety of their savings.
