Agenda 21, the “comprehensive plan” for a New World Order, is a document agreed upon by world leaders at the United Nations Earth Summit which took place in Rio De Janeiro in 1992. The implementation of the policies have manifested in:
The promotion of genetically modified foods, which have been proven to be directly linked to ill health, disease and even infertility.
Mandatory vaccinations, which have been directly linked to autism and other severe health problems including death.
The implementation of RFID micro chipping which paves the way for a cashless society allowing complete control over the population.
Aerosol spraying as a means of controlling weather and climate change, but which is systematically destroying the soil, water and the air we breathe leading to serious health issues.
And basically is an agenda to completely dominate the masses bringing the vision of the elite for a one world government with the people thoroughly dependent and helpless to escape this system of enslavement.

The global crackdown on parents who refuse vaccines for their kids has begun
Countries like Italy and Australia are tired of measles outbreaks — so they’re moving to fine anti-vaccine parents.
There’s a school of thought that refusing vaccines on behalf of your children amounts to child abuse, and that parents should be punished for their decision. We know vaccines are overwhelmingly safe and effective at preventing the spread of disease. And yet failing to immunize children can put them (and vulnerable people around them) at tremendous risk of illness or even death when outbreaks get rolling.
Now it seems Australia and a number of countries in Europe are fed up enough with vaccine-refusing parents that they’re experimenting with punitive measures. We haven’t quite reached the level of child abuse charges, but moms and dads in these countries may face fines if they fail to give their kids the recommended shots. In Australia, schools that let the unvaccinated kids in would be fined too. This marks a pretty aggressive shift in how we manage vaccine refusers and the costly, deadly outbreaks of diseases like measles and whooping cough they help spark.
Here’s a quick roundup of the global crackdown on vaccine-refusing parents:
Italy’s parliament recently passed a law that makes 10 childhood vaccinations mandatory for kids up to age 16, and requires parents to prove their children are immunized before entering school or else face a €500 (about $600 USD) noncompliance fine.
Germany is also cracking down on vaccine-refusing parents: Its parliament approved a law that obliges administrators at kindergartens to report parents who refuse counseling from their doctors about vaccines. Health ministries can then also fine the vaccine-hesitant parents up to €2,500 (about $3,000 USD).
In France, the health ministry is making 11 vaccines — up from the current three (diphtheria, tetanus, and polio) — mandatory for children by 2018, though there’s no talk of a fine there yet.
Further afield, the state of South Australia is considering punishing vaccine-denier enablers with its “no jab, no play” legislation: The law would ban unvaccinated kids from preschool and day care and fine schools that admit un-immunized children $30,000 Australian dollars ($24,000 USD). The law in South Australia is modeled on similarly stringent laws in other Australian states, and across the country, parents with children who aren’t immunized aren’t eligible for child care benefits.

18 Little Known Facts About College Meningitis Vaccines
About N. meningitis and the meningitis vaccines
While meningitis sounds frightening and the infection can be serious, here are 18 important, yet little-known, facts about the infection and about the meningitis vaccines you need to know:
In the 10-year period between 1998-2007, only 2,262 cases of meningitis were reported in the United States. Within a population of more than 300 million, that number is negligible and not worth vaccinating millions for “protection.”
Of the 2,262 cases, 11.3% cases were fatal. Not to minimize the loss of life, but that also means that nearly 89% of people survived and recovered.
Meningitis does not spread rapidly. According to the Meningitis Research Foundation, the bacterium can only live for a few moments outside the human body, so it is not spread by casual contact and is not passed along on clothing, bedding, toys or dishes.
In fact, the Foundation goes on to say the risk of the infection is very low and 97 out of 100 cases occur in isolation, with no other cases.
Neisseria has 12 known bacterial strains, with serogroups A, B, C, W, X, and Y causing almost all infections worldwide. There are five N. meningitidis vaccines approved for use in the U.S.:
Menomune, for serotypes A, C, Y, W-135, approved in 1981
Menveo, for serotypes A, C, Y, W-135, approved in 2010
Menactra, for serotypes A, C, Y, W-135, approved in April 2011
Trumenba, for serotype B, approved in October 2014
Bexsero, for serotype B, approved in January 2015
Before – not after – the introduction of the meningococcal conjugate vaccines, the incidence of meningitis in the United States was already at an historic low.
Since the introduction of the meningitis vaccines, no significant decrease in serogroup C or Y infection has been seen.
Menomune, Menactra, and Menveo, recommended for middle school and college, do not generate antibodies against the most common form of the illness, serotype B.
Menomune still contains mercury.
Bexsero contains 1,500 mcg of aluminum per dose, the highest amount in any single vaccine.
There have been no safety studies investigating the injection of Menomune at the same time as other vaccines even though several vaccines, including flu shots or the teen pertussis vaccine, are often given together.
None of the meningitis vaccines have been tested for carcinogenicity (ability to cause cancer), mutagenicity (ability to disrupt genes) or the ability to interfere with fertility. This holds true for all vaccines.
Many reports have been filed with the Vaccine Adverse Reporting System (VAERS), documenting vaccine side effects.
The most recently approved vaccines Trumenba (2014) and Bexsero (2015), have nearly 3,000 adverse events filed with VAERS.
Menactra has been included in 18,646 VAERS reports.
Meningitis vaccines may be dangerously disrupting the body’s ability to create its own natural “protection mechanism” against meningitis infection.
The incidence of meningococcal disease decreases rapidly beginning in the second year of life, coincident with the natural colonization by Neisseria lactamica, a normal flora in the nasopharynx in young children. Before 10 years of age, when N. lactamica colonization is common and protective. When colonization by Neisseria meningitidis occurs later in life, the antibodies generated earlier against N. lactamica cross-react and contribute to natural immunity and defense against meningitis infection.
15. Serotype B vaccines have not been manufactured until very recently because the sugar sequences on the surface of this bacteria are very similar to the sugar sequences on the surface of human brain and nerve cells. Therefore, vaccine-induced antibodies against serotype B could attack the brain and the nerves, causing a debilitating, life-long, autoimmune reactions.
16. Bexsero was approved soon after an unofficial trial at Stanford University in 2013. Read my full report about the slick maneuver Novartis pulled on American parents to get this vaccine approved.
17. N. meningititis vaccines do not have a long lasting effect. In fact, the CDC admits:
As part of the licensure process, both meningococcal conjugate and serogroup B meningococcal vaccines showed that they produce an immune response that suggests the vaccines are protective,but there are limited data available on how well they work to protect against disease…
Available data suggest that protection from meningococcal conjugate vaccines decreases in many within 5 years…..Early data on serogroup B meningococcal vaccines suggest that protective antibodies also decrease fairly quickly after vaccination.
Parents, Once Again, You’re Being Lied T

The Real Risks of the Meningitis Vaccines
Let’s look at the cost of a possible complication from one of the meningococcal vaccines: Menactra.
Beginning in 2005, cases of Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS) were being reported to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) in students within 6 weeks of receiving Menactra. GBS is a serious type of paralysis with potentially long-term complications. By February 25, 2008, more than 15 million doses of Menactra had been administered nationwide with 26 confirmed case reports of GBS. Notably, 24 of the 26 students were between the ages of 11 and 19.
According to the government’s Agency for Healthcare Quality and Research data, called the HCUP database, 150 persons were admitted to the hospital with meningococcal meningitis in 2014. The average hospital stay was 7 days and the average cost of care was $87,122. In comparison, the average cost to care for one case of uncomplicated GBS (ICD9 357) – hospitalization, follow-up rehab, and other ancillary services – was $134,099.
While meningitis is serious, the real risk of contracting the infection is very low. Comparatively, the healthcare costs for one of the complications of the vaccine, GBS, is equally as serious and the cost of treatment are nearly 30% higher than the cost to care for one case of meningitis. Said another way, the cost of treating a vaccine side effect is 30% more than the cost of treating the illness.
The list of reported adverse events on the Menactra package insert includes the following:
Hypersensitivity reactions, such as anaphylaxis/anaphylactic reaction
Wheezing, difficulty breathing, upper airway swelling
Urticaria (hives), pruritis (itching) and erythema
Hypotension (low blood pressure), paresthesia, dizziness, vasovagal syncope (fainting)
Convulsions (seizures), palsy of the face
Acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (diffuse brain inflammation), transverse myelitis, and myalgia (muscle pain).
The vaccines manufacturers, the physicians and the nurses who administer Menactra and other vaccines are completely shielded from liability in the event of a vaccine injury or even a death

Purdue Vaccine Study – what you should know
Please print and give your veterinarian a copy of the letter below, regarding the research being done at Purdue University Veterinary School under the direction of Dr. Larry Glickman. This study started in the late 1990’s, the study of Vaccine-Induced Autoimmunity in the dog and there is already some evidence of thyroid, heart, bone disease (HOD like symptoms) due to vaccines. This information has been hidden in plain sight all of this time.
When anyone tells you ‘the science is settled, vaccines work’, that in my opinion is a gigantic reductionist view of a very complex topic, and false. No science is ever settled, that is why it is science, forever being studied, forever finding out new things. Look, we spent over 2,000 years believing the Earth was the center of the Universe, and flat, now look at what we currently know to be true. Ever evolving, ever changing, that is science.
Vaccine manufacturers are going to fight back because the more they sell the more money they make, that is a fact. Safe vaccine schedules and cleaner vaccines are not good financial choices for them, so therein lies another layer of complexity, or insidious behavior, however you choose to look at it.
Many breeders, trainers, and family pet owners have known this for years, they have told their veterinarians about reactions, and have been advocates for legitimate studies, safer schedules, and the end to over vaccination. Finally someone listened. Thank you.
VACCINE SAFETY (?)
A Possible Etiology of Autoimmune Diseases
By William R. La Rosa, M.D. Trustee- Hayward Foundation – The Hayward Foundation is dedicated to research and eradication of human genetic diseases.
There is much anecdotal hearsay about the safety of vaccines in dogs as well as in humans.
The Vaccine Safety Committee recently emphasized the need for more definitive research on possible adverse effects during the development of new vaccines and vaccine combinations.
(National Academy Press, Washington D.C. 1994).
When a dog vaccine safety issue was brought to our attention by Laura Kiaulenas, a prominent Harlequin Great Dane breeder, and after reading articles by Jean Dodds DVM, we decided to fund a study to prove or disprove the supposition of multiple diseases, acute and chronic, caused by vaccination.
If indeed, many breeders are correct, then is the dog a canary sentinel, and are human similarly being affected, and if so can we identify the dog or human who is genetically susceptible to these reactions ?
We were fortunate that prominent and respected researchers, Drs. Larry T. Glickman, Harm HogenEsch, Juan I. Azona-Olivera, J. Catherine Scott-Montcrieff, and Paul W. Snyder of Purdue University, School of Veterinary Medicine, agreed to undertake the study.
The results are enlightening and they are enthusiastically working on the second phase, a study of longer duration.

Courts quietly confirm MMR Vaccine causes Autism
By Mark Wachtler
July 27, 2013. Austin. (ONN) After decades of passionate debate, parents probably missed the repeated admissions by drug companies and governments alike that vaccines do in fact cause autism. For concerned parents seeking the truth, it’s worth remembering that the exact same people who own the world’s drug companies also own America’s news outlets. Finding propaganda-free information has been difficult, until now.
At the center of the fifteen-year controversy is Dr. Andrew Wakefield of Austin, Texas. It was Dr. Wakefield that first publicized the link between stomach disorders and autism, and taking the findings one step further, the link between stomach disorders, autism and the Measles Mumps Rubella (MMR) vaccine.

These Girls Got Paralyzed Because Of A Vaccine Against HPV
Two girls from the UK revealed their story after vaccination against HPV. They believed that doing the right thing for themselves, and now they are paralyzed from the neck down.
Although healthcare and researches claims that the HPV vaccine is safe, these two teenage girls regret for taken it.
Ruby Shallom from the UK had no idea what would happen after taking third vaccines, which are proven to be effective in the fight against human papilloma virus that can cause cervical cancer. Hers eight peers already received the third dose, therefore she wasn’t fearful of the possible consequences. After thawing, she and some of her friends felt bad, had dizziness, and they had a stomachache. At first they thought it was normal. Ruby is now paralyzed from the neck down and can only use her left hand, and she believes that the last dose of the vaccine is the cause of her current situation.
– I’ve never been afraid of vaccination, I wasn’t worried at all – said the 16-year-old girl from Berkshire and added:
I come from a family that vaccination is normally and believes it helps. My mother told me that before I never had a bad reaction to the vaccine. After going for the third dose of the vaccine, which prevents the development of HPV, Ruby had terrible cramps and felt the pain in her stomach.
– I went to the hospital, but the pain only got worse, my heart began to throb uncontrollably, it was terrible.
During the first weeks, Ruby has five times been in the hospital. For the next few months she suffered from nausea and chronic fatigue. She had trouble walking. In March 2016, suddenly become paralyzed.
The doctors said that there is a possibility that the vaccine damaged Ruby’s immune system, despite claims by the leading pharmaceutical companies in the vaccine is completely safe, according to The Mirror.

CDC Vaccine Cover-up Details Exposed by Truth in Media
by PAUL FASSA
It’s been making the rounds on alternative health and vaccination resistance sites. Ben Swann did a recent Truth in Media video report covering the CDC vaccination whistle blower case that won’t go away despite being ignored by the rest of the media.
Truth in Media is a crowd funded internet enterprise in its second year, and episodes from the first year are being sent to Amazon Prime and Hulu Plus.
Also, the production value is high as Ben Swann anchored at the news desk of Fox 19 in Cincinnati, Ohio before he got fed up with mainstream media’s lack of exposing real truth using real investigative journalism in areas considered too controversial.
You have Fox and then there’s PBS, each rooting for one wing or the other of the same vulture that sucks up our lives. Swann asserts his journalism transcends the polarity of left and right politics, saying “it’s more about tyranny vs freedom”. Swann has an impressive track record in mainstream media journalism with several investigative awards on his record.
From Wikipedia: While at WXIX-TV in Cincinnati, Ohio, he produced a fact-checking series entitled Reality Check, which gave him national coverage for his reporting about controversial issues. Swann announced he was leaving WXIX-TV on May 31, 2013, and on May 30, 2013, he said he would launch a crowd source funded “Truth In Media” to continue production of his show through a Chicago production team. In June 2015, he joined CBS46 (WGCL-TV) in Atlanta as evening news anchor.
Review of Ben Swann’s CDC, Vaccine Autism Presentation
Ben uses his journalism training and background to give a thorough presentation surrounding the controversy created by lead CDC scientist turned whistle blower Dr. William Thompson. Dr. Thompson, who had obtained a whistle blower attorney to help him receive whistle blower protection, also handed over documents to Florida Congressman Bill Posey with hopes there would be a congressional investigation.
After Posey’s two different appeals from the House floor to attending Representatives, there has been no further action on the CDC’s actual destruction of incriminating evidence demonstrating MMR vaccinations contribution to autism. The CDC and vaccine industry have their intertwined tentacles wrapped around Congress for sure.
Ben Swann’s coverage gives some background on vaccine autism debate. But here’s the rub. That is a narrow topic compared to the damage vaccines can and do cause. Even the report that whistle blower Thompson had helped scrub and alter excluded searching for every other cerebral or nervous system condition vaccines can cause, such as epilepsy, mental retardation, and lesser conditions such as ADD limiting it only to those diagnosed with autism.
The whole “debate” focuses only on autism, ignoring the wide range of autoimmune diseases such as asthma, allergies, immune defense deficiencies leading to chronic ailments and catching whatever bugs come around. Thus the whole debate and subsequent official studies are slanted toward minimizing all other adverse effects.
Ben Swan does an excellent job of presenting the facts with documents showing time, place, form and event. The report’s whole focus is on this CDC media/government covered scandal, and it gives a good punch in the CDC’s face as a corrupt group that violates any premise of public health protection. You can view it above and also make sure to take a look at the whistleblower documents available for free immediate download below. Download copies for yourself before they’re taken down for good.

Temple of Ba’al Arch Erected for World Government Summit in Dubai
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz February 16, 2017

“For they have consulted together with one consent; against Thee do they make a covenant; The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites; Moav, and the Hagrites.” Psalms 83:6-7 (The Israel Bible™)

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

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

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

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

Whooping cough increase related to current vaccine

FDA NEWS RELEASE
For Immediate Release: Nov. 27, 2013
FDA study helps provide an understanding of rising rates of whooping cough and response to vaccination
A new study is helping to provide a better understanding of vaccines for whooping cough, the common name for the disease pertussis. Based on an animal model, the study conducted by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and published November 25, 2013, in The Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, shows that acellular pertussis vaccines licensed by the FDA are effective in preventing the disease among those vaccinated, but suggests that they may not prevent infection from the bacteria that causes whooping cough in those vaccinated or its spread to other people, including those who may not be vaccinated.
Whooping cough rates in the United States have been increasing since the 1980s and reached a 50-year high in 2012. Whooping cough is a contagious respiratory disease caused by Bordetella pertussis bacteria. Initial symptoms include runny nose, sneezing, and a mild cough, which may seem like a typical cold. Usually, the cough slowly becomes more severe, and eventually the patient may experience bouts of rapid, violent coughing followed by the “whooping” sound that gives the disease its common name, when trying to take a breath. Whooping cough can cause serious and sometimes life-threatening complications, permanent disability, and even death, especially in infants and young children.

19 kids in Summit Co. diagnosed with whooping cough despite being up to date on vaccinations
PARK CITY, Utah — A whooping cough outbreak is causing concern in Summit County as 19 children have been diagnosed, and it’s the first time in years Park City schools have seen a case of pertussis.
Officials said all of the children who have been diagnosed were vaccinated against the illness.
“It has been a very busy week, very busy week here, a lot of people coming in to be tested,” said Dr. Alison Delgado with Summit Pediatrics.
Delgado tested dozens of children for whooping cough in the last week. According to the Summit County Department of Health, there are 19 confirmed cases of the highly contagious illness in Park City, and all of the children infected are up to date on their vaccinations.
“A lot of people want to know why their child is getting it because they’re vaccinated, and it has to do a lot with the vaccine; it’s not a 100 percent, however it is about 90 to 95 percent effective,” said Carolyn Rose, who is a nursing director for the Summit County Department of Health.

Whooping cough increase related to current vaccine
The move to an artificially created vaccine for whooping cough is behind an increase in cases of the deadly disease in the US, a new study suggests.
The findings highlight the need to do similar research in Australia where whooping cough cases have spiralled upward in the past decade, co-author Associate Professor Manoj Gambhir, from the University of Monash, says.
In 2012 the US saw the highest number of pertussis (whooping cough) cases since 1955.
At the same time there has been a shift in the age group reporting the largest number of cases from adolescents to 7 to 11 year olds.
In the paper, published today in PLOS Computational Biology, Gambhir and colleagues use mathematical modelling of 60 years of pertussis disease data to determine what best explains this increase.
Their research finds the level of protection of the currently used acellular vaccine is lower than that of the previously used whole-cell vaccine.
Gambhir says the original whole-cell vaccine developed in 1942 was very effective.
Following introduction of vaccination, the reported disease incidence in the US dropped from 150 cases per 100,000 each year before 1940, to the point of near elimination in the mid-1970s when there were just 0.5 reported cases per 100,000 population.
“Now in the past decade we have seen a rise from that low to about 10-20 cases per 100,000,” says Gambhir.
Gambhir, who led the study with Dr Thomas Clark at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in Atlanta, Georgia, and Professor Neil Ferguson, of the Imperial College London in the UK, says while the number of cases remains low the trend is upward.
“It’s the sort of five-year by five-year rise that is the concern because the worry is it could go back to those levels at which we would start seeing infant deaths,” he says.
New vaccine to blame
Gambhir says in 1991 researchers developed a new vaccine to address public concerns that the whooping cough vaccine caused a reaction in some children.
This vaccine, known as acellular pertussis vaccine, used particular components of the bacteria that were believed to generate the immune response, but was essentially artificially created.
Gambhir says the impact of the change in vaccine has taken time to show in the data.
“You didn’t see an immediate increase [in whooping cough],” he says. “It has taken cohorts of children to have all of their doses to be the new vaccine for the increases in disease to manifest themselves.”
Gambhir says the efficacy of the acellular vaccine is still high – around 80 per cent protection for the first three doses – but there has been a “significant drop” when compared with the older whole-cell vaccine (90 per cent protection).

Study: A Change in Vaccine Efficacy and Duration of Protection Explains Recent Rises in Pertussis Incidence in the United States
Abstract
Over the past ten years the incidence of pertussis in the United States (U.S.) has risen steadily, with 2012 seeing the highest case number since 1955. There has also been a shift over the same time period in the age group reporting the largest number of cases (aside from infants), from adolescents to 7–11 year olds. We use epidemiological modelling and a large case incidence dataset to explain the upsurge. We investigate several hypotheses for the upsurge in pertussis cases by fitting a suite of dynamic epidemiological models to incidence data from the National Notifiable Disease Surveillance System (NNDSS) between 1990–2009, as well as incidence data from a variety of sources from 1950–1989. We find that: the best-fitting model is one in which vaccine efficacy and duration of protection of the acellular pertussis (aP) vaccine is lower than that of the whole-cell (wP) vaccine, (efficacy of the first three doses 80% [95% CI: 78%, 82%] versus 90% [95% CI: 87%, 94%]), increasing the rate at which disease is reported to NNDSS is not sufficient to explain the upsurge and 3) 2010–2012 disease incidence is predicted well. In this study, we use all available U.S. surveillance data to: 1) fit a set of mathematical models and determine which best explains these data and 2) determine the epidemiological and vaccine-related parameter values of this model. We find evidence of a difference in efficacy and duration of protection between the two vaccine types, wP and aP (aP efficacy and duration lower than wP). Future refinement of the model presented here will allow for an exploration of alternative vaccination strategies such as different age-spacings, further booster doses, and cocooning.
