(Natural News) In today’s Situation Update podcast (below), I share passages from the Old Testament that are highly relevant today when it comes to protecting children against being sacrificed to Satan.
In Leviticus, God explains (through Moses) that not only is child sacrifice sinful and evil, but that communities have an obligation to stop parents who are sacrificing their children to Moloch (“Molek”).
Societies that fail to stop the practice of child sacrifice face the wrath of God. Here’s Leviticus 20:2-5 (emphasis added)
Say to the Israelites: ‘Any Israelite or any foreigner residing in Israel who sacrifices any of his children to Molek is to be put to death. The members of the community are to stone him. I myself will set my face against him and will cut him off from his people; for by sacrificing his children to Molek, he has defiled my sanctuary and profaned my holy name. If the members of the community close their eyes when that man sacrifices one of his children to Molek and if they fail to put him to death, I myself will set my face against him and his family and will cut them off from their people together with all who follow him in prostituting themselves to Molek.’
As you can see, God calls for harsh punishment for parents who sacrifice their own children. In Exodus, God also shows that he is willing to unleash plagues upon entire nations that fail to follow his teachings. His plagues become increasingly severe as his warnings are ignored. In Exodus, God commanded the Pharaoh to set free the Israelites, and the Pharaoh refused until the tenth plague finally changed his mind.
Notably, at least two of these plagues are biological weapons attacks (livestock disease and the plague of the boils). Other plagues unleashed by God against Egypt include locusts, flies, gnats, frogs and finally, the mass death of all first-born sons.
Spike protein vaccines are biological weapons aimed at human children
Covid vaccines contain instructions for the body to manufacture spike protein nanoparticles. Those toxic nanoparticles attack the body from the inside and even damage the DNA repair mechanism found in the nuclei of human cells. Accordingly, covid vaccines are a biological weapon being used to destroy human lives.
When they are injected into children with the permission of their parents, those parents are sacrificing their children and condemning them to death. God has already chimed in on his disdain for those parents who sacrifice their own children, and if the modern world does not stop this medical violence being committed against children, it’s quite clear that God will unleash his wrath against the nations of our world.
“Pan Ran” Italian style: politicos who apparently pushed the forced vaccine law– Aniello Formisano, Elisa Mariano, Ludovico Vico and Salvatore Capone– rush to take refuge in cars to avoid confrontation with countless protesters.
Eyes on Italy… this is far from over.
When you sell your integrity and humanity to Big Pharma, there is a price to pay! Aniello Formisano, a member of the Democratic and Progressive Movement, is confronted by Italians who WILL NOT accept mandatory vaccination!

Makaylah’s Story ~
“On October 21, 2015 she received her required vaccinations to start school. After receiving those vaccines, she told her mom, “she just didn’t feel very well”. gofund.me/makaykay
Soon, she began to trip and fall constantly. When playing with her siblings, she began to sit and rest during most of her play time due to loss of energy. She would use the walls or furniture for support to balance or walk and you could see her body having tremors. After taking her to many doctors and even after many tests, we are often told, “we don’t know.” We were also told she would need special help.
She cannot attend school alone. Her balance and stamina are not improving. Her motor functions, speech and food nutrients processing are in rapid decline.
On her last doctor visit in September 2016, they spoke of possibly incorporating a feeding tube.
Even after receiving the diagnosis of some form of “Ataxia”, some doctors still do not agree and believe the cause may be a toxin. Myself and the family believe it was caused by a toxin.
Corresponding with the multiple toxins she received in the form of vaccines on October 21, 2015.
I am Robert, her grandfather. I have seen her struggle with needing to use a walker and a wheel chair or just wondering why her body now reacts like it does.
She does not understand any of this because it was not long ago that she could run, play and just be a child. She often wakes up with seizures and trembling.
Her latest challenge is feeding herself. Please help us help Makayla in this medical mystery. We appreciate your contributions, donations and prayers for Makayla. May God Bless You Always for Sharing.”

“This is unacceptable, I will fight for my son, this happened to the wrong family.” – Nick Catone
Former UFC fighter, Nick Catone, is making waves on social media. But while many fighters are drawing attention to themselves for attacking their opponents, Catone is gathering attention for another reason: his vocal criticism of vaccination.
For him, the issue is very personal since on May 12, his otherwise healthy 20-month-old son passed away in the middle of the night. While the family was initially perplexed as to how a healthy little boy could just simply die without warning, consultations with numerous doctors and even an autopsy yielded no results. Instead, the cause of Nicholas’ death was listed as “natural.”
Shortly after, however, Catone began hearing stories from other parents regarding their child’s adverse reactions to vaccines, ranging from seizures to autism and death. Catone began doing his own research and is now convinced that it was the vaccine that killed his son.
Toddler Wrongly Injected with Gardasil Vaccine Develops Rare Form of Leukaemia
by NATALIE AKOORIE
A Hamilton toddler who was mistakenly injected with a vaccine to prevent cervical cancer when he was just six weeks old has developed a rare form of leukaemia.
Chace Topperwien began chemotherapy for the M7 strand of acute myeloid leukaemia on his second birthday last month, but doctors cannot tell them whether the Gardasil vaccine he was injected with in May 2009 caused the cancer.
His parents, Ryan and Keri Topperwien, are devastated at the diagnosis after they were reassured at the time of the incident that their baby would not suffer any adverse reactions.
“I had thought in the very back of my mind that the absolute worst thing they could say is leukaemia,” Mrs Topperwien said. “When they said that he had it, it blindsided both of us.”
The couple, both 27, were horrified when at six weeks old their son was given the vaccination meant for teenage girls instead of one to prevent meningitis.

Not Just Autism, Major Yale Study Shows Vaccines Tied To Multiple Brain Disorders
Scientist found a strong correlation between vaccines and developing a brain disorder such as OCD, anorexia, ADHD, and major depressive disorders.
By: Jack Burns / The Free Thought Project It is no question that the subject of vaccines is profoundly controversial. On both sides of the argument exist truths and lies that can hinder the ability of some to make rational decisions.
For the last 50 years, the world has taken a front row seat to the phenomenological occurrences of the rise of brain disorders such as Autism, ADHD, and major depressive disorders. Anecdotally speaking, parents all over the globe have reported that one day their children were normal and growing healthily, and the next, after having gotten their vaccinations, they get Autism, or ADHD, for example.
While science and the government continue to maintain there’s no causal relation between the vaccines and the disorders, parents, multiple studies, and other countries have reported otherwise. Now, it seems, some very brave and unabashed scientists have been able to show a correlation of what many have known for quite some time.
It has also been proven that CDC scientists destroyed data that showed a correlation between vaccines and autism in children.
Researchers at Pennsylvania State and Yale University sought to examine, “whether antecedent vaccinations are associated with increased incidence of obsessive–compulsive disorder (OCD), anorexia nervosa (AN), anxiety disorder, chronic tic disorder, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, major depressive disorder, and bipolar disorder in a national sample of privately insured children.”
Controlling for broken bones and open wounds (control means to use commonly occurring instances as a contrast method), the researchers concluded that someone who’d received the Flu vaccine within the last year “were also associated with incident diagnoses of AN, OCD, and an anxiety disorder.” These findings greatly expand the common understandings that vaccines are related to Autism and now include the other three brain-based illnesses.
The study used private insurance claims information as their means of collecting the data. “Using claims data, we compared the prior year’s occurrence of vaccinations in children and adolescents aged 6–15 years with the above neuropsychiatric disorders that were newly diagnosed between January 2002 and December 2007,” the study writes.
Moreover, the correlations were not limited to the Flu vaccine either. According to the published study found in the Journal Frontiers in Psychiatry, “Several other associations were also significant with HRs greater than 1.40 (hepatitis A with OCD and AN; hepatitis B with AN,” meaning the hepatitis vaccines are also implicated in causing brain disorders.
CDC Scientist Admits they Destroyed Data that Showed Vaccines Caused Autism in Children
It is no question that the subject of vaccines is profoundly controversial. On both sides of the argument exist truths and lies that can hinder the ability of some to make rational decisions.
While we have everyone from attorneys to biologists, to political scientists who write for the Free Thought Project, none of us are doctors, so we do not make recommendations about what you and your family should do in regards to vaccination. That being said, when we see critical information about vaccines being kept from the public, we will expose it every single time.
On October 24, activists rallied at the headquarters of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, Georgia. Their mission was clearly stated, “Truth, Transparency, and Freedom.”
The event called for “concerned individuals from all across the nation” to gather outside the CDC Headquarters and “demand truth, transparency and freedom-to-choose which medical procedures are right for themselves and their families.” The event states that the demonstration will be aimed at exposing “the corruption within the CDC’s vaccine division,” according to a report by Derrick Broze.
The organizers of the event were focusing on the lack of coverage given to the bombshell admission by a Senior Research Scientist within the CDC, Dr. William Thompson.
During 2014, Dr. Thompson had multiple discussions with a man named Dr. Brian Hooker “regarding vaccines and neurodevelopmental outcomes including autism spectrum disorders.”
Thompson was completely unaware that he was being recorded by Hooker during these conversations that subsequently led to a CDC cover-up being exposed.
Temporal Association of Certain Neuropsychiatric Disorders Following Vaccination of Children and Adolescents: A Pilot Case–Control Study
Results: Subjects with newly diagnosed AN were more likely than controls to have had any vaccination in the previous 3 months [hazard ratio (HR) 1.80, 95% confidence interval 1.21–2.68]. Influenza vaccinations during the prior 3, 6, and 12 months were also associated with incident diagnoses of AN, OCD, and an anxiety disorder. Several other associations were also significant with HRs greater than 1.40 (hepatitis A with OCD and AN; hepatitis B with AN; and meningitis with AN and chronic tic disorder).
Conclusion: This pilot epidemiologic analysis implies that the onset of some neuropsychiatric disorders may be temporally related to prior vaccinations in a subset of individuals. These findings warrant further investigation, but do not prove a causal role of antecedent infections or vaccinations in the pathoetiology of these conditions. Given the modest magnitude of these findings in contrast to the clear public health benefits of the timely administration of vaccines in preventing mortality and morbidity in childhood infectious diseases, we encourage families to maintain vaccination schedules according to CDC guidelines.

They show her having involuntary spasms and also show how she cannot use any of her limbs.
Her latest Video diary was taken just last week she’s wearing her splints on this one & it shows she can still only blink, speak & she still has involuntary spasms. She’s not moved a single limb for 11 weeks now and apart from a couple of nights at home between hospital admissions she has been in hospital all this time. Over the past the past 2 weeks shes deteriorated & she’s also been vomiting in the afternoon & evenings today she was sick 34 times in 40 mins.
She’s currently just rotting in a hospital bed & no one cares!

Natural News – Confirmed science shows that vaccinated children have 420% higher risk of ADHD compared to non-vaccinated kids
Monday, May 22, 2017 by: Tracey Watson
(Natural News) For the longest time, I’ve wondered why scientists have not done more straightforward, direct comparisons of the health outcomes of vaccinated children versus those whose parents have chosen not to vaccinate them. After all, that would provide the definitive answer, wouldn’t it? No more of this shilly-shallying back and forth; if you took a group of kids around the same age, half of whom were vaccinated while the other half were not, and checked which group had the better health outcomes, the vaccine debate would be over.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other agencies have stubbornly refused to promote such uncomplicated, straight-forward scientific analyses – no points for figuring out why – but a group of scientists from the School of Public Health at Jackson State University has nonetheless risen to the challenge. For those who have been warning parents about the dangers of vaccines for years, like Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, and Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., the scientists’ findings are not the least bit surprising.
The study, which was published recently in the Journal of Translational Science, sought to do two things: Firstly, the scientists wanted to compare a broad range of health outcomes for vaccinated and unvaccinated children; and secondly, they wanted to determine whether there was an association between vaccination and neurodevelopmental disorders (NDD) which remained significant after adjusting for other factors.
Interestingly, the study abstract begins by singing the praises of vaccines and all they have accomplished in preventing diseases in the past. They then go on to point out, however, that in terms of the current recommended pediatric vaccine schedule, children receive 48 doses of vaccines to prevent 14 different diseases by the age of 6 – a number which has increased steadily over the past 60 years.
The researchers point out that individual vaccines are tested before being rolled out to the public, and that though they are known to carry risks, these risks are believed to be minimal.
But here’s the kicker: It’s the long-term effects of these vaccines, and particularly having so many vaccines in such a short space of time, that scientists have not assessed. “There are very few randomized trials on any existing vaccine recommended for children in terms of morbidity and mortality,” they note, “in part because of ethical concerns involving withholding vaccines from children assigned to a control group.”
Okay, so scientists haven’t wanted to withhold vaccines from children in order to study them, as that would raise ethical concerns, so they’ve rather just gone ahead with vaccinating millions of children with pretty much untested vaccine combinations? Okay … moving on. Study PDF source Study – Pilot comparative study on the health of vaccinated and unvaccinated 6- to 12-year-old U.S. children
Vaccinations have prevented millions of infectious illnesses, hospitalizations and deaths among U.S. children, yet the long-term health outcomes of the vaccination
schedule remain uncertain. Studies have been recommended by the U.S. Institute of Medicine to address this question. This study aimed 1) to compare vaccinated and
unvaccinated children on a broad range of health outcomes, and 2) to determine whether an association found between vaccination and neurodevelopmental disorders
(NDD), if any, remained significant after adjustment for other measured factors. A cross-sectional study of mothers of children educated at home was carried out
in collaboration with homeschool organizations in four U.S. states: Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi and Oregon. Mothers were asked to complete an anonymous
online questionnaire on their 6- to 12-year-old biological children with respect to pregnancy-related factors, birth history, vaccinations, physician-diagnosed illnesses,
medications used, and health services. NDD, a derived diagnostic measure, was defined as having one or more of the following three closely-related diagnoses: a
learning disability, Attention Deficient Hyperactivity Disorder, and Autism Spectrum Disorder. A convenience sample of 666 children was obtained, of which 261
(39%) were unvaccinated. The vaccinated were less likely than the unvaccinated to have been diagnosed with chickenpox and pertussis, but more likely to have been
diagnosed with pneumonia, otitis media, allergies and NDD. After adjustment, vaccination, male gender, and preterm birth remained significantly associated with
NDD. However, in a final adjusted model with interaction, vaccination but not preterm birth remained associated with NDD, while the interaction of preterm
birth and vaccination was associated with a 6.6-fold increased odds of NDD (95% CI: 2.8, 15.5). In conclusion, vaccinated homeschool children were found to have
a higher rate of allergies and NDD than unvaccinated homeschool children. While vaccination remained significantly associated with NDD after controlling for
other factors, preterm birth coupled with vaccination was associated with an apparent synergistic increase in the odds of NDD. Further research involving larger,
independent samples and stronger research designs is needed to verify and understand these unexpected findings in order to optimize the impact of vaccines on children’s health
Superintendent: Third mumps case confirmed at Jacobs High School
updated: 5/25/2017 12:35 PM
By Katie Smith
Daily Herald correspondent
A third case of mumps has been confirmed at Jacobs High School in Algonquin, Superintendent Fred Heid announced Tuesday.
The district sent a notice to parents Tuesday confirming that test results for a student with a suspected case of mumps have come back positive.
“The student has been out of school since May 14th and, as a result, there is minimal chance that other students were exposed during the period of time that he may have been contagious,” Heid wrote in the letter posted on District 300’s website.
The Kane County Health Department had notified the school of a second confirmed case Thursday.
All three students were vaccinated, according to a letter to parents posted Thursday. Two of shared one class, school officials said. The third student does not share classes or activities with the other two.
Many Infectious Disease Outbreaks Are Occurring Among Vaccinated Population Revealing Vaccine Failure
May 26, 2017
Infectious Disease Outbreaks: Are the Vaccines to Blame?
by Marco Caceres
The Vaccine Reaction
It seems like whenever there is an outbreak of an infectious disease in the United States, the media, local public health officials and legislators immediately blame people, who weighed the benefits and risks of vaccination for themselves or their minor children and exercised their right to informed consent to medical risk taking, which includes the freedom to decline to take the risk. News reports abound about how the outbreak would not have happened had people just done what doctors told them to do and gotten their shots.
Of course, the irony is that, in many outbreaks of infectious disease of late in the U.S., a substantial minority or, in some cases, a majority of those infected had been vaccinated. So the obvious conclusion would be that there is a problem with the vaccine’s long term effectiveness. But that conclusion is often downplayed or ignored.
The preferred explanation of why infections occur in vaccinated people, especially in small communities where a lot of people are living in close proximity to each other, is that people are “particularly susceptible to the virus, even if they’ve been vaccinated.”  That was the most common explanation, for example, for the outbreak of mumps on college campuses throughout the country last year.
During the first half of 2016, more than 40 students at Harvard University came down with mumps. All of the students had been fully vaccinated with two doses of the MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) vaccine. [2, 3] There were a total of more than 4,000 cases of mumps in the U.S. last year, “fueled in part by its spread on college campuses.” 
According to Amesh Adalja, MD of the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center’s Center for Health Security:
The exposure that they have to mumps is so high in these situations that it overcomes the ability of the vaccine to protect them. It may be that, in these special situations, a much higher level of antibodies [against mumps] is needed to keep the virus at bay. 
(Short answer: We don’t really know.) An article in The Philadelphia Inquirer following the mumps outbreak at Pennsylvania State University last year reported:
As Pennsylvania State University copes with an ongoing outbreak of mumps, infectious-disease experts are investigating why vaccinated young people are getting sick and whether a booster shot would help. 
Dr. Amesh noted that, “Repeatedly being exposed to the disease essentially overcomes their protective immunity, and they can become sick.”
But isn’t that precisely the point of vaccination: to protect you from exposures to disease, even repeated exposures?
12 Year Old Girl Develops Guillain-Barré Syndrome After Gardasil Vaccine – Suffers Paralysis
May 26, 2017
The VAXXED film crew was recently in California interviewing people about their experiences with vaccines.
They interviewed Michelle Snyder and her daughter Ashley about the Gardasil vaccine.
The mother had reservations about the Gardasil vaccine, but doctors said it was fine. She has five daughters, and began to make plans to have them vaccinated with Gardasil.
After the first shot, her 12 year old daughter came in from playing and said her legs “weren’t working.” She had been a dancer since age 4.
The next morning, she could not even walk.
The mom called for help, and was told it sounded like “ascending paralysis” or Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS).
By the time they got her to a hospital, she could not even swallow, requiring them to insert a feeding tube into her.
Listen to the entire interview: https://www.facebook.com/RevolutionForChoice/videos/223320054742255/
“Severe problems (very rare) • Serious allergic reaction (less than 1 out of a million doses) • Several other severe problems have been reported after DTaP vaccine. These include: – Long-term seizures, coma, or lowered consciousness – Permanent brain damage.”
Study – Relevance of Neuroinflammation and Encephalitis in Autism
Published online 2016 Jan 19
In recent years, many studies indicate that children with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) diagnosis have brain pathology suggestive of ongoing neuroinflammation or encephalitis in different regions of their brains. Evidence of neuroinflammation or encephalitis in ASD includes: microglial and astrocytic activation, a unique and elevated proinflammatory profile of cytokines, and aberrant expression of nuclear factor kappa-light-chain-enhancer of activated B cells. A conservative estimate based on the research suggests that at least 69% of individuals with an ASD diagnosis have microglial activation or neuroinflammation. Encephalitis, which is defined as inflammation of the brain, is medical diagnosis code G04.90 in the International Classification of Disease, 10th revision; however, children with an ASD diagnosis are not generally assessed for a possible medical diagnosis of encephalitis. This is unfortunate because if a child with ASD has neuroinflammation, then treating the underlying brain inflammation could lead to improved outcomes. The purpose of this review of the literature is to examine the evidence of neuroinflammation/encephalitis in those with an ASD diagnosis and to address how a medical diagnosis of encephalitis, when appropriate, could benefit these children by driving more immediate and targeted treatments.
Flu shots with side-effects on offer again
Natasha Bita, Consumer Editor
TheAustralian – 12:00AM February 16, 2012
Perth mother Kirsten Button, whose toddler Saba suffered brain damage after her Fluvax shot in 2010, said yesterday she was “shocked” the government would award the contract to CSL when it did not know why Fluvax had caused so many febrile convulsions. “What assurance does the public have, when they have not explained to us what happened with Fluvax in the first place?” Ms Button said.
She said Saba had been in perfect health before her flu shot, but 16 hours later was on life support, with brain injury and organ damage.
Now two months shy of her third birthday, Saba has epilepsy and is fed through a tube.
“She doesn’t talk, she doesn’t walk, she doesn’t eat and she can’t see properly,” Ms Button said. However, the little girl does occasionally reward her parents with a smile.
CSL was awarded the $117m contract in December, and the information was published on the federal government’s tender database last Friday.
Sanofi-Aventis was awarded a $69.5m contract while GlaxoSmithKline received a $14.7m contract – both to supply seasonal and pandemic flu vaccines for five years.
The contracts coincide with a new TGA review that reveals the risk of side-effects in adults from Fluvax in 2010 was “modestly higher” than for two rival brands.
Fluvax was 14.5 times more likely to cause a headache and nine times more likely to cause fatigue than Vaxigrip.
The data – based on an analysis of “adverse events” in adults vaccinated during the 2010 flu season – reveals Fluvax was 4.4 times more likely to cause vomiting and 10.7 times more likely to cause injection site pain than Influvac, made in The Netherlands for Abbott Australasia.
Lessons learnt in Japan from adverse reactions to the HPV vaccine: a medical ethics perspective
The human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine has been linked to a number of serious adverse reactions. The range of symptoms is diverse and they develop in a multi-layered manner over an extended period of time. The argument for the safety and effectiveness of the HPV vaccine overlooks the following flaws: (i) no consideration is given to the genetic basis of autoimmune diseases, and arguments that do not take this into account cannot assure the safety of the vaccine; (ii) the immune evasion mechanisms of HPV, which require the HPV vaccine to maintain an extraordinarily high antibody level for a long period of time for it to be effective, are disregarded; and (iii) the limitations of effectiveness of the vaccine. We also discuss various issues that came up in the course of developing, promoting and distributing the vaccine, as well as the pitfalls encountered in monitoring adverse events and epidemiological verification.

Study – Autism Occurrence by MMR Vaccine Status Among US Children With Older Siblings With and Without Autism
April 21, 2015
Importance Despite research showing no link between the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine and autism spectrum disorders (ASD), beliefs that the vaccine causes autism persist, leading to lower vaccination levels. Parents who already have a child with ASD may be especially wary of vaccinations.
Objective To report ASD occurrence by MMR vaccine status in a large sample of US children who have older siblings with and without ASD.
Design, Setting, and Participants A retrospective cohort study using an administrative claims database associated with a large commercial health plan. Participants included children continuously enrolled in the health plan from birth to at least 5 years of age during 2001-2012 who also had an older sibling continuously enrolled for at least 6 months between 1997 and 2012.
Exposures MMR vaccine receipt (0, 1, 2 doses) after 1 year of age.
Main Outcomes and Measures ASD status defined as 2 claims with a diagnosis code in any position for autistic disorder or other specified pervasive developmental disorder (PDD) including Asperger syndrome, or unspecified PDD (International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision, Clinical Modification 299.0x, 299.8x, 299.9x).
Results Of 95 727 children with older siblings, 994 (1.04%) were diagnosed with ASD and 1929 (2.02%) had an older sibling with ASD. Of those with older siblings with ASD, 134 (6.9%) had ASD, vs 860 (0.9%) children with unaffected siblings (P < .001). MMR vaccination rates (≥1 dose) were 84% (n = 78 549) at age 2 years and 92% (n = 86 063) at age 5 years for children with unaffected older siblings, vs 73% (n = 1409) at age 2 years and 86% (n = 1660) at age 5 years for children with affected siblings. MMR vaccine receipt was not associated with an increased risk of ASD at any age. For children with older siblings with ASD, at age 2, the adjusted relative risk (RR) of ASD for 1 dose of MMR vaccine vs no vaccine was 0.76 (95% CI, 0.48-1.22; P = .25), and at age 5, the RR of ASD for 2 doses compared with no vaccine was 0.56 (95% CI, 0.30-1.04; P = .07). For children whose older siblings did not have ASD, at age 2, the adjusted RR of ASD for 1 dose was 0.91 (95% CI, 0.68-1.20; P = .50) and at age 5, the RR of ASD for 2 doses was 1.09 (95% CI, 0.76-1.54; P = .65).
Conclusions and Relevance In this large sample of privately insured children with older siblings, receipt of the MMR vaccine was not associated with increased risk of ASD, regardless of whether older siblings had ASD. These findings indicate no harmful association between MMR vaccine receipt and ASD even among children already at higher risk for ASD.
Says 1 in 45 Children Now Have Autism. Don’t Worry, Nothing To See Here
Published December 8, 2015
A total of 2.24% of U.S. children (1 in 45 children) aged 3 to 17 years have autism spectrum disorder (ASD), according to new statistics released by the 2014 National Health Interview Survey. The new figure is up from 1.25% reported from 2011 to 2013. The prevalence of developmental delay fell to 3.57% from 4.84%, while the rate of intellectual disability remained virtually unchanged at 1.1%.1
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) attributes the significant jump in autism rates on the new format of the survey, which asked parents about autism before asking them if their child had an “other developmental delay.”1 In other words, the change in the order of the questions in the survey may have influenced parents to more likely report autism.
Regardless of the revised question ordering, the rates of autism have continued to increase dramatically during the past three decades:
1980’s: Two studies (1987 & 1989) found 1 in 2500-3000 U.S. children had autism2 3
2000: American Academy of Neurology and Child Neurology Society estimate 1 in 500 US children had autism. 2003-2004: Study (2006) revealed 1 in 188 U.S. children had autism5
2007: CDC states 1 in 150 U.S. children had autism6
2009: CDC states 1 in 110 U.S. children had autism7
2012: CDC states 1 in 88 U.S. children had autism8
2014: CDC states 1 in 68 U.S. children aged eight had autism9
Even though in 2014, the CDC “officially” admitted that 1 in 68 US children eight years old were found to have autism, in 2013 a CDC national health survey found that 1 in 50 children between the ages of 6 and 17 were diagnosed with ASD in 2011-2012.10 The authors of that 2013 federal health survey stated that:
The reported prevalence of ASD has increased in recent decades. For example, data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) revealed a nearly fourfold increase in parent-reported ASD between the 1997–1999 and 2006–2008 surveillance periods, and CDC’s Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring (ADDM) Network revealed a 78% increase in ASD prevalence between 2002 and 2008.
MARC J. BERN & PARTNERS LLP Files Lawsuits For A Hundred Individuals Against Merck Alleging Shingles/Zostavax Vaccine Is Defective*
MARC J. BERN & PARTNERS LLP, the attorneys who last month filed their first complaint in Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas on behalf of Jorja Bently, today have filed complaints for another 100 plaintiffs against Merck regarding its Shingles vaccine, Zostavax. The assertions are wide ranging and include plaintiffs claiming to have suffered various side effects which include contracting shingles, chickenpox, high blood pressure, intense neuropathic pain, eye injuries, headaches, dizziness amongst others.
It is alleged by Marc J. Bern & Partners LLP that “Merck knew and had reason to know that its Zostavax vaccine was inherently defective and unreasonably dangerous as designed” that “Merck downplayed the serious and dangerous side effects of its product to encourage sales of the product; consequently, Merck placed its profits above its customers’ safety.” According to founding Partner Marc J Bern, the firm is currently representing nearly 5000 claimants and has thousands more filings to follow. “We have been investigating this drug for quite some time. We steadfastly believe in the merits of this litigation. This vaccination is at best 50 percent effective. Either it is not effective or it causes shingles or a host of other side effects. What is most troubling is that Merck had a better alternative on hand when this product was released.” says Bern.
Thousands Sue Merck for Shingles Vaccine “Causing What It’s Supposed to Prevent”
By Annabelle Bamforth – April 22, 2017
Merck has explicitly stated that those who receive the Zostavax vaccine “may still get shingles.” However, Bouk argued that some people may be contracting shingles as a side effect of the vaccine itself due to the live virus strain in the vaccine, not because people are experiencing shingles despite the vaccine.
Bouk went on to say that “there is a study out there that shows that in 50% of the patients that actually get the vaccine, that sometimes they don’t get shingles — the virus goes straight to manifesting in the central nervous system. It’s possible that you could get the vaccine and get meningitis or encephalitis without ever actually exhibiting shingles.” Bouk advises that patients weigh the risks of Zostavax before receiving the vaccine.
While GSK seeks approval of Shingrix, which could lead to their product edging out Zostavax, a large number of claims have been filed against Merck. The Mark J. Bern Partners law firm “is currently representing nearly 5000 claimants and has thousands more filings to follow.”
Shingles Vaccine Zostavax Is Causing What It’s Designed To Prevent
April 19, 2017
By now I think most people have seen the commercials on television telling us that if we’ve ever had the chicken pox at any point in our lives, then the shingles virus is already inside of us. As it stands right now, there is a vaccine for shingles called Zostavax, but what we’re finding out now about this vaccine makes it seem like it might be pretty dangerous or at least cause some side effects that are actually the same as what we’d see from shingles. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins talks with Attorney Troy Bouk about the dangers associated with Zostavax.

INTERNATIONAL HUMANITARIAN LAW STATES – IT IS ILLEGAL TO TAKE AWAY ANYONES RIGHT OF INFORMED CONSENT! THAT LAW STILL STANDS!
The Supreme Court has spoken: even a “…diminished expectation of privacy does not diminish [your] privacy interest in preventing a government agent from piercing [your] skin…. this Court has never retreated from its recognition that any compelled intrusion into the human body implicates significant, constitutionally protected privacy interests…” (Missouri v McNeely, 2013
members of the public have the right to make informed consent decisions, even if a decision may be considered a “bad” decision by the Government. The Supreme Court indicated, in Thompson v Western States 2016 Significantly, there is also the UN Declaration on BioEthics, negotiated in Geneva, using language similar to the Nuremberg Code and clearly applies to both treatment and experiment:
Article 6 – “Consent – 1. Any preventive, diagnostic and therapeutic medical intervention is only to be carried out with the prior, free and informed consent of the person concerned, based on adequate information. The consent should, where appropriate, be express and may be withdrawn by the person concerned at any time and for any reason without disadvantage or prejudice. 2. Scientific research should only be carried out with the prior, free, express and informed consent of the person concerned. The information should be adequate, provided in a comprehensible form and should include modalities for withdrawal of consent. Consent may be withdrawn by the person concerned at any time and for any reason without any disadvantage or prejudice.

What The Pharmaceutical Companies Don’t Want You To Know About VACCINES… Paperback – 2009
This book is a must read for parents, soon to be parents and physicians who regularly administer vaccines. There are over 500 pages of information proving that vaccines are not responsible for the eradication of communicable disease; vaccines have done nothing but promote chronic disease and illness; and vaccines contain the most toxic chemicals known to man. Furthermore, there are close to 2,000 references that back up the information in this book. The references are from studies published in peer reviewed medical journals, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Food and Drug Administration, the prestigious Institute of Medicine, and from the United States Congressional Reform Committee. Lastly, this book contains all the U.S. licensed vaccines and the ingredients each vaccine contains. The ingredients of each vaccine come directly from the pharmaceutical companies’ vaccine package insert which are cross referenced with the National Library of Medicine for their human health effects-You will be SHOCKED at the side effects these vaccine ingredients have on the human body! FACT: If anyone from the medical community wants to argue with the information in this book, they will argue among themselves-it is their information!
Ever wonder WHY we NEED a religious exemption from vaccines?
Are you aware that some vaccines are made from ABORTIONS?

Countless teenage girls suffer paralysis, blood clots, brain damage and chronic pain from force-vaccination of Gardasil’s HPV “shot in the dark”
Friday, March 17, 2017 by: S.D. Wells
(Natural News) A sexually transmitted disease called human papillomavirus (HPV) is the only form of cancer known to be contagious, but what the medical community won’t tell parents of teenagers and preteens is that HPV is easily defeated by a normal functioning immune system. Of the 120 or more different strains of HPV, only about 15 are carcinogenic, and the HPV vaccines, which have never been proven safe or effective in any clinical trials, literally take a shot in the dark at a couple of these strains, much like the haphazard flu shot administered every year to tens of millions of unsuspecting victims of neurological poisoning.
Still, the CDC and rogue hacks and shills from Big Pharma use scare tactics to all but force-vaccinate girls as young as 9-years-old with sodium chloride and two versions of the dormant HPV cancers hidden in protein and genetically modified organisms.
Scare tactics and medical propaganda con mothers into getting their young daughters jabbed with deadly neurotoxins
“You won’t be able to have children if you get cervical cancer.” “You can catch cancer from having sex and die.” “The shot will make you immune to cancer.” “The shot prevents cancer.” “You wanna have children later? You better get this shot.” The propaganda is mind-blowing, and it unfortunately works. It convinces parents to do the unthinkable: have their little girls (and boys) jabbed with some of the most dangerous carcinogens on earth to “prevent” a couple of strains of a rather benign, pre-cancerous STD. It doesn’t even make sense. What’s even worse is that the HPV vaccine’s protection effect wears off after a few years (as does the cancer itself under normal immune conditions), so what’s the use of taking the risk of getting jabbed with all these neurotoxins? Just how young are kids becoming promiscuous enough to worry about STDs anyhow?
More than 10,000 adverse events have been reported from victims of the HPV scam, including blood clots in the heart and lungs, anaphylactic shock, loss of muscle use and seizures. Most infections from HPV are benign and cleared rapidly by the human immune system and never progress to cervical cancer, or even precancerous lesions of the vagina, vulva or anus. No valid reason for administering the HPV vaccine has ever even been established.
Why are HPV vaccines, like Gardasil (made by Merck) and Cervarix (made by GSK) so dangerous? Answer: They’re made with “denatured” forms and fragmented strains of the virus, meaning the virus is weakened and can remain dormant for months, if not years, so if you do get the virus later, who’s to say you didn’t get it from the vaccine itself? No studies on this have ever been conducted, nor will they likely ever be. Plus, Gardasil contains aluminum, sodium chloride, polysorbate 80 and l-histidine, the latter of which interferes with the brain’s defenses against metal toxins. That means the aluminum has a heightened chance of crossing the blood/brain barrier. Got brain damage? No wonder. The following are just four examples of the hundreds (if not thousands) of girls permanently damaged by HPV vaccines.
Stronger More Toxic Gardasil Vaccine Approved by FDA: Will More Girls Suffer and Die?
March 23, 2017
Malfeasance is when a public official violates the public trust by performing an act that is wrongful, legally unjustified, or contrary to law. Nonfeasance is the failure to act where there is a duty to act. Misfeasance is conduct that is lawful but inappropriate. Perhaps, when it comes to the recent approval of Gardasil 9 all of these apply.
10 December 2014: The FDA approved the use of a reportedly “new and improved” version of Gardasil, which will be marketed as Gardasil 9. According to the FDA approval letter, this action was taken without consultation with VRBPAC (the Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee) which is responsible for reviewing and evaluating data concerning the safety, effectiveness, and appropriate use of vaccines and related biological products.
The FDA approval letter, signed by Marion Gruber, Director of Office of Vaccines Research and Review CBER, states the reason for bypassing the advice of VRBPAC writing:
”We did not refer your application to the Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee because our review of information submitted in your BLA, including the clinical study design and trial results, did not raise concerns or controversial issues which would have benefited from an advisory committee discussion.”
So, the Office of Vaccines Research and Review, Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research (CBER) committee took it upon themselves to decide there were ”no concerns or controversial issues” regarding the approval of Gardasil 9?
This division of CBER decided there would be no benefit from ”an advisory committee discussion”?
According to their own mission statement, the FDA is ”responsible for protecting the public health by assuring the safety, efficacy and security of human and veterinary drugs, biological products, medical devices, our nation’s food supply, cosmetics, and products that emit radiation.”
The FDA, and all committees associated with the FDA, are public officials and therefore obliged to act in the public’s best interest particularly when it comes to health and safety issues.
Is bypassing advisory committee discussions regarding Gardasil 9’s potential safety and efficacy acting in the public’s best interest, or is it malfeasance, nonfeasance and/or misfeasance?
Gardasil 9 Facts: More than DOUBLE the amount of Toxic Aluminum!
CBER decided there was no need for VRBPAC to review or evaluate any data concerning the safety, effectiveness, and appropriate use of Merck’s proposed Gardasil 9 vaccine before making a decision to approve the nine-valent HPV vaccine. This move is particularly disturbing when one considers the worldwide controversy surrounding Gardasil’s safety, effectiveness and appropriate use.
Dr. Yehuda Shoenfeld says vaccines cause auto-immunity. It’s really not a question of “IF” there are adverse events from vaccines, it’s a question of “how often?”, “how severe?”, and whether it’s worth the trade-off? You can listen to the pre-eminent expert on vaccine-induced autoimmunity in the world, or you can go to your mainstream pediatrician who will tell you that vaccines have “no risk, lots of benefits.” It’s really up to you!
This is just a clip from his talk, entire talk in comments below, as well as Dr. Shoenfeld’s new TEXTBOOK, called “Vaccines and Autoimmunity”!
By the way, “autoimmunity” includes all the crazy epidemics in our kids that weren’t around in the 1980s or earlier: asthma, food allergies, skin rashes, etc. “Some of the main examples of autoimmune disorders include diabetes mellitus type 1 (IDDM), systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, Graves’ disease of the thyroid, Sjögren’s syndrome, Churg-Strauss Syndrome, Coeliac disease, rheumatoid arthritis (RA), and idiopathic thrombocytopenic purport.”
Listen to Dr. Shoenfeld: “Dr. Yehuda Shoenfeld is on the editorial board of 43 journals in the fields of rheumatology and autoimmunity and is the founder and editor of the Israel Medical Association Journal, the representative journal of science and medicine in the English language in Israel. He is also is the founder and editor of “Autoimmunity Reviews” and co-editor of “The Journal of Autoimmunity”. His clinical and scientific works focus on autoimmune and rheumatic diseases, and he has published more than 1700 papers in journals such as the New England Journal of Medicine, Nature, the Lancet, the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America, the Journal of Clinical Investigation, the Journal of Immunology, Blood, the Journal of the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology, the Journal of Experimental Medicine, Circulation, Cancer, and others, and his articles have had over 31,000 citations. He has written more than three hundred and fifty chapters in books, and has authored and edited 25 books.”
A study from West Africa’s Guinea-Bissau discovered that all-cause infant mortality more than doubled after the introduction of the DTP vaccination.
An observational study from the West African country Guinea-Bissau titled, “The Introduction of Diphtheria-Tetanus-Pertussis and Oral Polio Vaccine Among Young Infants in an Urban African Community: A Natural Experiment,” [i] examined the introduction of diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis (DTP) and oral polio vaccine (OPV) in an urban community in Guinea-Bissau in the early 1980s. The World Health Organization introduced the Expanded Program on Immunization (EPI) in low-income countries in the 1970s with the goal of universal immunization for all children. In the introduction, the study’s authors state, “Except for the measles vaccines, surprisingly few studies examined the introduction of vaccines and their impact on child survival.”
The purpose of the study was to examine what happens to child survival when DTP and OPV were introduced in low-income countries. A community study [ii] of the state of nutrition and family structure found that severe malnutrition was not evident in urban Guinea-Bissau although it was initially assumed to be the main cause of the under-five mortality rate.
The study findings emerged from a child population that had been followed with 3-monthly nutritional weighing sessions since 1978. From June 1981 DTP and OPV were offered from 3 months of age at these sessions. Due to the 3-monthly intervals between sessions, the children were allocated by birthday in a ‘natural experiment’ to receive vaccinations early or late between 3 and 5 months of age. The study included children who were greater than 6 months of age when vaccinations started and children born until the end of December 1983. The researchers compared mortality between 3 and 5 months of age of DTP-vaccinated and not-yet-DTP- vaccinated children in Cox proportional hazard models.
When mortality was compared, the mortality hazard ratio (HR) among 3-5-month-old children having received the DTP (±OPV) was 5.00 compared with not-yet-DTP-vaccinated children [i.e. a 400% increase]. According to the authors, differences in background factors did not explain the effect. All-cause infant mortality after 3 months of age increased after the introduction of these vaccines (2.12 (1.07–4.19)) [i.e. a 212% increase]. However, the study findings revealed the negative effect was particularly strong for children who had received DTP-only and no OPV (10.0 (2.61–38.6)).
The researchers concluded:
“DTP was associated with increased mortality; OPV may modify the effect of DTP.”
Study – The Introduction of Diphtheria-Tetanus-Pertussis and Oral Polio Vaccine Among Young Infants in an Urban African Community: A Natural Experiment
We examined the introduction of diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis (DTP) and oral polio vaccine (OPV) in an urban community in Guinea-Bissau in the early 1980s.
The child population had been followed with 3-monthly nutritional weighing sessions since 1978. From June 1981 DTP and OPV were offered from 3 months of age at these sessions. Due to the 3-monthly intervals between sessions, the children were allocated by birthday in a ‘natural experiment’ to receive vaccinations early or late between 3 and 5 months of age. We included children who were <6 months of age when vaccinations started and children born until the end of December 1983. We compared mortality between 3 and 5 months of age of DTP-vaccinated and not-yet-DTP-vaccinated children in Cox proportional hazard models.
Among 3–5-month-old children, having received DTP (±OPV) was associated with a mortality hazard ratio (HR) of 5.00 (95% CI 1.53–16.3) compared with not-yet-DTP-vaccinated children. Differences in background factors did not explain the effect. The negative effect was particularly strong for children who had received DTP-only and no OPV (HR = 10.0 (2.61–38.6)). All-cause infant mortality after 3 months of age increased after the introduction of these vaccines (HR = 2.12 (1.07–4.19)).
DTP was associated with increased mortality; OPV may modify the effect of DTP.
