The death by starvation of Etwariya Devi, a 67-year-old widow from the rural Indian state of Jharkhand, might have passed without notice had it not been part of a more widespread trend.
Like 1.3 billion of her fellow Indians, Devi had been pushed to enroll in a biometricdigital ID system called Aadhaar in order to access public services, including her monthly allotment of 25kg of rice. When her fingerprint failed to register with the shoddy system, Devi was denied her food ration.
Throughout the course of the following three months in 2017, she was repeatedly refused food until she succumbed to hunger, alone in her home.
Premani Kumar, a 64-year-old woman also from Jharkhand, met the same demise as Devi, dying of hunger and exhaustion the same year after the Aadhaar system transferred her pension payments to another person without her permission, while cutting off her monthly food rations.
A similarly cruel fate was reserved for Santoshi Kumari, an 11-year-old girl, also from Jharkhand, who reportedly died begging for rice after her family’s ration card was canceled because it had not been linked to their Aadhaar digital ID.
These three heart-rending casualties were among a spate of deaths in rural India in 2017 which came as a direct result of the Aadhaar digital ID system.

Trump’s ‘not going to back down’ from vaccine safety commission, RFK Jr. says after new White House talks
by Eric Sagonowsky | Feb 16, 2017 12:47pm
A new U.S. government commission on vaccine safety has not died the quick death immunization advocates might have wanted. It is still in the works, according to the shot critic who would likely head up the effort.
President Donald Trump told Robert Kennedy Jr. that he expected an “uproar” from pharma when news of the commission first broke—but promised he would not “back down” from his plans, Kennedy said Wednesday.
At an hourlong press conference Wednesday in Washington, D.C., Kennedy Jr. said the White House had contacted him three times since reports broke on his meeting with then-President-elect Trump last month. Kennedy emerged from the meeting saying Trump wanted him—a frequent vaccine critic who has espoused discredited data questioning their safety—to lead a commission investigating their safety.
Trump’s team denied the claim at the time, but on Wednesday, Kennedy revealed new details about the discussions.
“They tell me that they are still going forward with a commission,” Kennedy said, referencing what he previously described as a group that would look into “vaccine safety and scientific integrity.”
Kennedy said the president told him he “knew that the pharmaceutical industry was going to cause an uproar about this and was going to try to make them back down.”
Trump said “I’m not going to back down,” Kennedy continued. Trump “knew many people who thought and believed their children were injured by vaccines.”
The political scion went on to say the commission would be “made up of Americans with the highest integrity” to review the science behind immunizations. https://www.facebook.com/WorldMercuryProject/?fref=nf

Massive Protests in Italy Signal Revolution Against Mandatory Vaccines
July 11, 2017
Christina Sarich, Staff Writer
California’s compulsory vaccination law, passed with the help of corrupt Big Pharma interests, left a wake of US states vulnerable to similar legislation which would strip parents of the right to decide if their children should be vaccinated.
The people of Italy, however, aren’t taking similar legislation proposed by the Italian Parliament with the same complacency most Americans have when faced with losing their medical freedom. Protests have swelled across the country for over a month now, likely influencing the Senate to ease its controversial mandatory-vaccine stance.
The new legislation being proposed since protests reached a more fevered pitch includes fewer mandatory vaccines and reduced penalties for those who won’t comply should the legislation pass, but many are still unnerved by any legislation which would force vaccines on their children to any degree.
The protests have been extremely large, and in every major Italian city, millions have gathered in the streets – but of course you likely haven’t seen this reported on the WSJ or NBC.
At rally after rally they shout, “We want freedom!” As in freedom to decide whether or not to shoot their children up with vaccines known to contain aluminum (known neurotoxin), thimerosal, desiccated viruses, fetal tissue, human and GMO cell lines, bovine growth hormones, formaldehyde, latex, and more.
Another speaker leading a protest says, “The problem is not vaccines per say, but that Glaxo [Glaxo Smith Kline] is inside our ministry [government.]”
At their own admission the company delivers more than two million vaccines daily to people in over 160 countries, indicating that their interests are not in founded in promoting public health, but rather in making billions off the hoax public health crises they create.
Just as a point of interest for discerning readers, a measles outbreak was the same modus operandi used by Big Pharma to push mandatory vaccine regulation in California. This is the very same means used by Italian officials to try to promote their own mandatory vaccine agenda. (And oddly, the articles on NPR are like mirror images of each other for those who want to look further at the methods (pre-planned script) of brainwashing used by the crumbling power structure.)
Study – Characteristics and viral propagation properties of a new human diploid cell line, Walvax-2, and its suitability as a candidate cell substrate for vaccine production.
Human diploid cell strains (HDCSs), possessing identical chromosome sets known to be free of all known adventitious agents, are of great use in developing human vaccines. However it is extremely difficult to obtain qualified HDCSs that can satisfy the requirements for the mass production of vaccines. We have developed a new HDCS, Walvax-2, which we derived from the lung tissue of a 3-month-old fetus. We established primary, master and working cell banks successfully from reconstituted frozen cells. Observations during the concurrent propagation of Walvax-2 and MRC-5 cells revealed differences in terms of growth rate, cell viability and viral sensitivities. Specifically, Walvax-2 cells replicated more rapidly than MRC-5 cells, with Walvax-2 cells attaining the same degree of confluence in 48 hours as was reached by MRC-5 cells in 72 hours. Moreover, Walvax-2 cells attained 58 passages of cell doublings whereas MRC-5 reached 48 passages during this period. We also assessed the susceptibility of these cells to rabies, hepatitis A, and Varicella viruses. Analysis of virus titers showed the Walvax-2 cells to be equal or superior to MRC-5 cells for cultivating these viruses. Furthermore, in order to characterize the Walvax-2 cell banks, a series of tests including cell identification, chromosomal characterization, tumorigenicity, as well as tests for the presence of microbial agents, exogenous viruses, and retroviruses, were conducted according to standard international protocols. In conclusion, results from this study show that Walvax-2 cell banks are a promising cell substrate and could potentially be used for the manufacturing of HDCVs.
BREAKING : Private Citizen Launches Action Plan to Demolish Mandatory Vaccines
By Paul Meizner
Ricardo Beas, a concerned citizen and parent of three school-age children in California, is determined to do the seemingly impossible. He has set out to shed so much light on the illegality and health hazards of mandatory vaccines that the vaccine lobby will be overruled by public opinion. Calling upon the First-Amendment’s right to petition for redress of grievances, Beas wrote an amazing 39-page document in the form of a petition that has the format of a legal document. It lists the grievances, shows how constitutional and civil law has been violated, and calls for the President of the United States to empower an official investigation of the charges and report to the public.
It is anticipated that sufficient investigation (done by people and institutions that are financially independent of the pharmaceutical industry) and sufficient public awareness of the results of that investigation will lead to corrective political action. People can do more than just be keyboard warriors. By participating in this action, which costs nothing but a few postage stamps, we can do something really meaningful. Today. –GEG
There have been four lawsuits against California’s SB277 mandatory vaccine bill but, so far, none of them have produced action. Few people have the time and resources to litigate a lawsuit, but any American can join Beas in his action. Furthermore, unlike a lawsuit, the ‘class-action’ concept behind this petition of grievances has the potential to take the issue directly to the public rather than depending only on a judge and a few lawyers.
Instead of filing another lawsuit, Ricardo Beas is pursuing an investigation and redress for the vaccine scheme that now is mandatory by law in California under SB277. He has sent a detailed list of grievances to President Trump, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price and Education Secretary Betsy DeVos. His plan is to inspire tens-of-thousands of people to join his petition to end the blackout on this important issue.
In his 39-page grievance statement, Beas lists the names and the crimes of the vaccine lobby that includes vaccine manufacturers, like the Merck drug company, complicit government agencies, such as the CDC (Center for Disease Control), and numerous California agencies, local school districts, health departments, the Blue Shield insurance company, and many politicians. California Governor Jerry Brown was specifically named, in addition to California state Senator Dr. Richard Pan and Ben Allen who authored SB277.
Beas is calling for the government to take the following actions:
Investigate all claims.
Convene a grand jury against the named criminal participants.
Prosecute the criminal participants.
Stop all funding to California state institutions that require vaccines.
A demand to eliminate the Vaccine Court so that vaccine manufacturers are held liable for any damages caused by their products.
Compensation to parents of children injured by vaccines with funds collected from guilty criminal participants.
Here is the link for the 39-page petition for grievance, which details the crimes of the vaccine pushers and names each party and their part in the crime. http://www.cafepeyote.com/files/Criminal_Complaint_-_Vaccines_-_US_Dept_Justice.pdf http://www.cafepeyote.com/files/Criminal_Complaint_-_Vaccines_-_Form.docx

Could this be Driving the Epidemic of Sudden Infant Death (SIDS)?
by Kelly Brogan, MD
Written with Sayer Ji, GreenMedInfo.com founder.
A new study published in Current Medicine and Chemistry titled, “Sudden infant death following hexavalent vaccination: a neuropathologic study,” lends support for the long theorized link between an ever-expanding number of infant vaccines and Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).
The fact that the peak age for SIDS is 2–4 months, which coincides with the introduction of 11 shots containing 16 vaccines (within the US immunization schedule), is so obvious a cause for concern, that even the CDC has been compelled to address the seeming ‘coincidence’ directly:
“From 2 to 4 months old, babies begin their primary course of vaccinations. This is also the peak age for sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). The timing of these two events has led some people to believe they might be related…With babies receiving multiple doses of vaccines during their first year of life and SIDS being the leading cause of death in babies between one month and one year of age, CDC has led research studies to look for possible linkage.”
Unsurprisingly, the CDC, whose pro-vaccine agenda is glaringly oblivious to the 100+ documented serious, unintended adverse effects of vaccines as evidenced in the biomedical literature, claims extensive research they commissioned has found vaccines do not cause SIDS. Despite the CDC’s dismissal, infant mortality rates are highest among countries that administer the most vaccines within the most vulnerable developmental window of infanthood. A 2011 study published in Human & Experimental Toxicology, for instance, observed that “The US childhood immunization schedule specifies 26 vaccine doses for infants aged less than 1 year—the most in the world—yet 33 nations have lower IMRs [infant mortality rates].” They found that across the 34 nations analyzed “a high statistically significant correlation between increasing number of vaccine doses and increasing infant mortality rates, with r = 0.992 (p = 0.0009).”
Also, a recent study published in Vaccine titled, “Co-administration of live measles and yellow fever vaccines and inactivated pentavalent vaccines is associated with increased mortality compared with measles and yellow fever vaccines only” found multiple infant vaccines dramatically increased the risk of mortality in a trial conducted in the West African country of Guinea-Bissau.
Multiple Infant Vaccines Linked To Dramatically Increased Mortality
Posted on: Thursday, December 19th 2013 at 6:15 am
Written By: Sayer Ji, Founder

A new study published in the journal Vaccine has brought to light an extremely disturbing though still virtually unreported dark side to immunization campaigns within low-income countries, namely, the observation that infant mortality sometimes increases when the number of co-administered vaccines increases; a finding diametrically opposed to the widely held belief that vaccination is always a life-saving intervention, and that the more vaccines administered to infants the better.
New Study Links DTP and Yellow Fever Vaccines To Infant Deaths
The new observational study from the West African country Guinea-Bissau titled, “Co-administration of live measles and yellow fever vaccines and inactivated pentavalent vaccines is associated with increased mortality compared with measles and yellow fever vaccines only,”[i] opens with a reference to the already consistent observation in the biomedical literature that the co-administration of inactivated diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis (DTP) vaccine and live attenuated measles vaccine (MV) increases mortality compared with receiving MV only. [ii] [iii]
The purpose of the new investigation was to determine whether co-administration of pentavalent vaccine (PV) with MV and yellow fever vaccine (YF) had similar negative effects. Both PV and YF vaccines were introduced in Guinea-Bissau in 2008, with PV containing 5 vaccine antigens in one shot (DTP-H. Influenza type B-Hepatitis B).
The study findings emerged from a randomized, placebo-controlled clinical trial conducted in 2007-2011, where researchers administered vitamin A at routine vaccination contacts among children aged 6-23 months in urban and rural Guinea-Bissau. A total of 2331 children were randomized to placebo, receiving either live vaccines only (MV or MV+YF) or a combination of live and inactivated vaccines (MV+DTP or MV+YF+pentavalent).
When mortality was compared, the adjusted mortality rate ratio (MRR) for co-administered live and inactivated vaccines compared with live vaccines only was over three times greater (3.24 (1.20-8.73). When MV+YF+pentavalent was compared with MV+YF only, the adjusted MRR was almost eight times greater (7.73 (1.79-33.4)) for the combination of the three vaccines versus two.
The researchers concluded:
“In line with previous studies of DTP, the present results indicate that pentavalent vaccine co-administered with MV and YF is associated with increased mortality.”
Pentavalent and Yellow Fever Vaccines Already Linked To Fatalities
Sudden Infant Death Following Hexavalent Vaccination: A Neuropathologic Study
Author(s): L. Matturri, G. Del Corno, A.M. Lavezzi.
We examined a large number of sudden infant death syndrome victims in order to point out a possible causal relationship between a previous hexavalent vaccination and the sudden infant death. We selected 110 cases submitted to in-depth histological examination of the autonomic nervous system and provided with detailed clinical and environmental information. In 13 cases (11.8%) the death occurred in temporal association with administration of the hexavalent vaccine (from 1 to 7 days). In none of these victims congenital developmental alterations of the main nervous structures regulating the vital functions were observed. Only the hypoplasia of the arcuate nucleus was present in 5 cases. In one case in particular an acquired hyperacute encephalitis of the tractus solitarii nucleus was diagnosed in the brainstem. This study does not prove a causal relationship between the hexavalent vaccination and SIDS. However, we hypothesize that vaccine components could have a direct role in sparking off a lethal outcome in vulnerable babies. In conclusion, we sustain the need that deaths occurring in a short space of time after hexavalent vaccination are appropriately investigated and submitted to a post-mortem examination particularly of the autonomic nervous system by an expert pathologist to objectively evaluate the possible causative role of the vaccine in SIDS.

Reduce the pain of vaccination in babies – Full Video
The pain of vaccinations can be distressing for babies and parents alike. This video provides parents with simple and effective tools to help reduce their baby’s perception of pain.
These methods fall into three groups:
(1) What you can give — topical anesthetics and sugar water
(2) What you can do — child positioning and breast-feeding
(3) How you can act — your state of mind and distracting your baby

Senator Gets Paid $400,000 By Big Pharma And Then Pushes Mandatory Vaccine Law
By CognitiveTruths – June 9, 2017
The head of the powerful Senate Health Committee has up to $130,000 in investments in pharmaceutical and other health-related companies, state records show.
Sen. Kemp Hannon (R-Nassau County) in 2014 invested in 14 companies that would fall under his committee’s purview.
Hannon took over $400,000 from pharmaceutical companies as bribes. He also has pushed for a menengitis vaccine law that would make the vaccine mandatory for 7th to 12 graders

ALBANY — The head of the powerful Senate Health Committee has up to $130,000 in investments in pharmaceutical and other health-related companies, state records show.
Sen. Kemp Hannon (R-Nassau County) in 2014 invested in 14 companies that would fall under his committee’s purview.
By comparison, Assembly Health Committee Chairman Richard Gottfried (D-Manhattan) did not report owning any stock in health-related companies. In addition to his investments, Hannon over the past four years also received more than $420,000 from pharmaceutical and other medical interests, records show.
Hannon’s office had no comment. On the part of his 2014 state financial disclosure form dealing with investments, he wrote that sales and purchases were “at sole discretion of the broker.”
While seemingly legal, the senator’s investments and the campaign contributions he received from the medical community have raised eyebrows at a time when how Albany does business is under legal scrutiny.
The vaccine injury denialism must STOP. If we, as a world of human beings, cannot embrace the human dignity of children enough to protect them from the predatory practices of this destructive vaccine industry, then we are living in denial of basic human dignity.
Watch this powerful video below, which shows the remarkable ability of these vaccine damaged children to still find the capacity to love other humans, even as they live in a world full of doctors, scientists and journalists who live in total denial of their roles in causing life-destroying damage from vaccine injuries.
New Studies Reveal Vaccine Harm
June 06, 2017
Two new studies offer evidence that vaccinated children have more health problems than unvaccinated children
Among unvaccinated premature infants, no link to neurodevelopmental disorders (NDD) was found. However, a significant link between vaccinations and NDD was detected, regardless of whether the child was premature or full-term
The combination of preterm birth with vaccination was associated with a 660 percent increased odds of NDD, suggesting a synergistic effect
CDC exposed as private corporation colluding with Big Pharma
By Ethan A. Huff | Natural News
The illusory notion that the federal regulatory agency known as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is somehow a public entity working on behalf of the people to protect us all from disease is simply laughable.
The CDC, by definition, is a private corporation working on behalf of its stakeholders, which include key players in the pharmaceutical and vaccine industries that profit from the spread of disease, not from real prevention and cures.
Big Pharma and the CDC: one in the same
Anyone who tries to argue with you that the CDC is looking out for public safety as its first priority just needs to take a glance at D&B to see that the CDC is actually looking out for its own bottom line, and that of its corporate allies. Which brings us into our second piece of evidence that the CDC is a corrupt, drug-pandering sham – many of the CDC’s top health “experts” have ties to the pharmaceutical industry.
An investigation by the British Medical Journal (BMJ) and the Bureau of Investigative Journalism (BIJ) found that three key “scientists” who helped develop official swine flu policy for the World Health Organization (WHO), recommending that practically everyone be vaccinated, received cash payments from both Roche and GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), two pharmaceutical giants that manufacture swine flu vaccines.
These two companies, as reported by The Guardian in 2010, paid off policymakers in multiple countries, including in the U.S. (at the CDC), to write the WHO’s guidelines for swine flu that pushed dangerous swine flu vaccines on millions of people globally. With the help of the CDC and other corrupt agencies, these pharmaceutical corporations pocketed billions of dollars.
“The tentacles of drug company influence are in all levels in the decision-making process,” stated Paul Flynn, a British Member of Parliament who spoke out against this racket as it was occurring.
Merrill W. Chase, 98, Scientist Who Advanced Immunology
“Not until he used white blood cells did the immunity carry over to the other guinea pig, providing solid evidence that it could not be antibodies alone orchestrating the body’s immune response.
Dr. Chase had uncovered the second arm of the immune system, or cell-mediated immunity. His finding became the groundwork for later research that pinpointed B cells, T cells and other types of white blood cells as the body’s central safeguards against infection.
‘This was a major discovery because everyone now thinks of the immune response in two parts, and in many instances it’s the cellular components that are more important,’ said Dr. Michel Nussenzweig, a professor of immunology.”
Nobody has figured out anything about how to replicate the rest of the immune response.

Italians Take to the Streets to Protest New Mandatory Vaccination Law
Health Impact News Editor
Readers from Italy have been contacting Health Impact News this past week, asking us to cover the massive demonstrations happening throughout Italy to protest a new mandatory vaccine law. This news has been censored from the U.S. corporate media.
Francesca Alesse, who worked with the VAXXED film team to get the film shown in Italy last year, writes:
In an unprecedented way, the decree-law proposed by the Minister of Health has been signed by the sitting Italian president Sergio Mattarella. Only four vaccines were mandatory in Italy, now that number triples to 12.
No other decree-law has moved so fast in the Italian legislative system, the reasons of such hurry are incomprehensible considering that the Istituto Superiore Di Sanità (the local version of the CDC) has declared that contrary to what stated in the decree itself there is no objective urgency. There are no epidemics, the number of cases of measles or meningitis in the current year have been substantially lower than the previous year.
Thousands of parents have protested the new law this past June 3rd, protests and marches have taken place in 21 Italian cities spread across the nation. A national protest is scheduled for this Sunday June 11th.
Private Citizens Taking a Stand To End Corruption In California State Government Over SB277…
On July 15, 2016, Twenty Six (26) plaintiffs, all California residents, filed a “Private Attorney General” law suit against Senator Richard Pan, Governor Brown, their spouses, and the other Democrats who voted to force kids to be fully vaccinated to go to school.
What they voted for was Senate Bill SB277. It passed through all but the Commerce Committee, who didn’t have a voice. This committee was skipped.
Private firms are selling spying tools and mass surveillance technologies to developing countries with promises that “off the shelf” equipment will allow them to snoop on millions of emails, text messages and phone calls, according to a cache of documents published on Monday.
The papers show how firms, including dozens from Britain, tout the capabilities at private trade fairs aimed at offering nations in Africa, Asia and the Middle East the kind of powerful capabilities that are usually associated with government agencies such as GCHQ and its US counterpart, the National Security Agency.
The market has raised concerns among human rights groups and ministers, who are poised to announce new rules about the sale of such equipment from Britain.
“The government agrees that further regulation is necessary,” a spokesman for the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills said. “These products have legitimate uses … but we recognise that they may also be used to conduct espionage.”
The documents are included in an online database compiled by the research watchdog Privacy International, which has spent four years gathering 1,203 brochures and sales pitches used at conventions in Dubai, Prague, Brasilia, Washington, Kuala Lumpur, Paris and London. Analysts posed as potential buyers to gain access to the private fairs.
The database, called the Surveillance Industry Index, shows how firms from the UK, Israel, Germany, France and the US offer governments a range of systems that allow them to secretly hack into internet cables carrying email and phone traffic.
The index has details from 338 companies, including 77 from the UK, offering a total of 97 different technologies.
One firm says its “massive passive monitoring” equipment can “capture up to 1bn intercepts a day”. Some offer cameras hidden in cola cans, bricks or children’s carseats, while one manufacturer turns cars or vans into surveillance control centres.
What’s on offer
Some companies offer a range of spy equipment that would not look out of place in a James Bond film
Ordinary vans, cars and motorbikes can be customised to offer everything a spy could need. Tiny cameras and microphones are hidden in wing mirrors, headlights and even the makers’ logo. Vehicles can also be fitted with the latest mass surveillance technology, allowing them to intercept, assess and store a range of digital communications from the surrounding area.
The range of objects that can hide high-quality cameras and recording equipment appears almost limitless; from a box of tissues giving a 360-degree view of the room, to a child’s car seat, a brick and a key fob. Remote controls allow cameras to follow targets as they move around a room and have a powerful zoom to give high definition close-ups.
As with cameras recording equipment is getting more sophisticated and more ubiquitous. From cigarette lighters to pens their are limitless ways to listen in on other people’s conversations. One firm offers a special strap microphone that straps to the wearer’s would be spies’ back and records conversations going on directly behind them. According to the brochure: “[This] is ideal because people in a crowd think that someone with their back turned can’t hear their conversation.. Operatives can work much closer to their target.”
Handheld ‘biometric cameras’
This system, made by a UK firm, is currently being used by British forces in Afghanistan to help troops identify potential terrorists. The brochure for the Mobile Biometric Platform says: “Innocent civilian or Insurgent? Not Certain? Our systems are.” It adds: “The MBP is tailored for military use and enables biometric enrolment and identification of finger, face and iris against on board watchlists in real time from live or forensic data.”
Mobile phone locators
It is now possible, from a single laptop computer, to locate where a mobile phone is calling from anywhere in the world, with an accuracy of between 200 metres and a mile. This is not done by attaching probes, and it is not limited to the area where the laptop is working from. The “cross border” system means it is now theoretically possible to locate a mobile phone call from a town abroad from a laptop in London.
