You might remember that I posted about the potential dangers of Gardasil back in February.
Today Karen DeCoster has posted an explosive article about Merck and their Gardasil vaccine at Lew Rockwell’s blog. This is just a taste. Read the rest here.
Remember that Merck trotted out this drug as a revenue savior because it was reeling after its Vioxx pains and its old patents were expiring. Merck openly lobbied for the mandatory vaccination of young females – at $360 per three-dose regimen – on a state-by-state basis. Merck helped to sell its junk juice by claiming that it was pretty much free of side effects. The organization Judicial Watch filed a Freedom of Information Act request with the FDA, and in a 2007 analysis it discovered, at that time, there were 3,461 complaints that were filed about adverse reactions to the vaccine. Side effects have been blood clots, Bells Palsy, Guillain-Barre Syndrome, seizure-like activity, and fainting. It is also being linked to miscarriages, degenerative muscle conditions, and ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease). Oh, and death. Some young girls are developing juvenile ALS after getting the vaccines, and some die.
I’m runnin’ late this week, folks. Doesn’t that make all you “Word for … Thursday” folks feel better? Anyhow, you can leave your links in Mr. Linky and I’ll update here when I’ve done my post.
And I apologize to all the WFW participants that I haven’t even made the rounds for last week’s posts. I’ll get there. I promise.
For it is not you who speak, but it is the Spirit of your Father who speaks in you. Matthew 10:20
And it appears that the Spirit of my Father has nothing to say today in me, so that’s what I’m saying – nothing.
Shocking, I know, but this leaves me free to go read what all you folks are saying this week – and what you said last week. Blog tour day! Hurrah!
It’s about 8:30 pm, and I just finished digesting all the WFW posts for today. And I figured out why God didn’t have me do one today: He gave me a major-league blessing! Like-minded brethren, sharing what God has given them, one WFW post at a time.
I’d encourage everyone to click on Mr. Linky and choose a post to read. They’re all meaty messages from the heart of God.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America …do hereby proclaim September 28, 2009, as Family Day. I call upon the people of the United States to join together in observing this day with appropriate ceremonies and activities …
He probably won’t agree that my activity is appropriate, but I wanted to get into the spirit of things, so this post is it. I’ve taken a little look at the definition of “family” and here are a couple of the results.
Webster’s 1913: The group comprising a husband and wife and their dependent children, constituting a fundamental unit in the organization of society.
NAS Bible: For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name (Ephesians 3:14-15)
Why definitions, you ask? Well, it seems that the prez’s proclamation also includes a new definition of family. Here’s how his stacks up:
Whether children are raised by two parents, a single parent, grandparents, a same-sex couple, or a guardian, families encourage us to do our best and enable us to accomplish great things.
So I guess a family is now defined as any place with kids. I’m surprised he didn’t include public schools in his list, as he wants state control of them from “from the day they are born to the day they begin a career.”
Assuming that you still want to know for personal reasons, let’s look for clues.
The last time the US government panicked over swine flu was in 1976. Even the CDC later admitted there was no swine flu, but the vaccine resulted in over 500 cases of Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS) and 25 deaths. You’re probably not familiar with GBS, but I am. It’s an autoimmune disorder that attacks the lining of the nerves. A woman I see at therapy every week has it. She was in the hospital for several weeks, lost over 50 pounds, and almost died. Two years later, she still has no feeling in her feet and is on disability.
Here’s a video about the whole 1976 fiasco from a banned 60 Minutes show in 1979. Watch and learn.
So is GBS a risk with the current vaccine? The Center for Disease Control and the US media say not. “Get the shot. Give it to your kids,” they say.
But Britain’s Health Protection Agency and the Association of British Neurologists view it a little differently. They both sent confidential letters to about 600 neurologists in July, which were recently leaked to the Daily Mail, warning the neurologists to be on the lookout for an increase in GBS when the vaccine is rolled out. From those letters:
GBS has been identified as a condition needing enhanced surveillance when the swine flu vaccines are rolled out.
Traditionally, the BNSU has monitored rare diseases for long periods of time. However, the swine influenza (H1N1) pandemic has overtaken us and we need every member’s involvement with a new BNSU survey of Guillain-Barre Syndrome that will start on August 1 and run for approximately nine months.
Following the 1976 programme of vaccination against swine influenza in the US, a retrospective study found a possible eight-fold increase in the incidence of GBS.
You will have seen Press coverage describing the Government’s concern about releasing a vaccine of unknown safety.
From that same Daily Mail article:
Jackie Fletcher, founder of vaccine support group Jabs, said: ‘The Government would not be anticipating this if they didn’t think there was a connection. What we’ve got is a massive guinea-pig trial.’
Add to all this that Baxter Pharmaceuticals is one of the manufacturers of this new vaccine. You remember Baxter. I’ve written about them here and here and they’re still among my most popular posts.
So for myself, you won’t get me close to a vaccine shot. If you decide to get it, like NY health care workers are being forced to do, well … good luck. You have more faith in government and the pharmaceutical industry than I do.
Some nurses are refusing to take the flu shots that the NY health honjos have declared mandatory. Hear their stories. Listen to their reasons. They will lose their jobs for standing on their constitutional right to determine what enters their own bodies.
What will you do when they make it mandatory for everyone?
