A Shot in the Ass?

Journalist Files Charges against WHO and UN for Bioterrorism and Intent to Commit Mass Murder was big news on yesterday’s non-mainstream news sources.

I have not been able to verify if this supposed lawsuit is, in fact, valid or manufactured. Nor have I been able to find a source for information other than the one article that everyone else seems to be posting as fact. So, until I can find a secondary resource to validate the Natural News article, I will personally see the article as a more than likely hoax. I mean, what lawyer would touch the Illuminanti or Bilderberg in court? It is possible that one lawyer out there may say, “Sure, let’s give it a try!” I’d love to hear from him or her if that’s the case. So, as I said, until I can find a second valid source, I am going to assume this article is not all its cracked up to be.

Shortly after receiving the first article from one of our sources, we received a link for another article about the same topic: Criminal Charges to File Agains Government, Corporate Parties and WHO. This one though, gave source links to follow and even claimed to have the lawyer’s full court document of all charges. (For the supposed court document please follow the link above and select the “more information” link at the bottom of that page.)

Well, being the “Doubting Thomas” that I am, I began following those links and sources to see where it would lead me. I, once again, have some strong doubts as to the article’s validity since there is no originating source for the article given. Nor is there even a “posted by” tag line, so that I could contact them directly for the information, just an anonymous post on some nutrition and medication site. So, here’s what I was able to validate about the article. There are, in fact, some valid links within the text that are of interest. Mainly the following:

  • The Department of Homeland Security – List of Homeland Security Presidential Directives, mainly HSPD 20 mentioned in the article. But hey, a full list is always a good place to start when learning.
    http://www.dhs.gov/xabout/laws/editorial_0607.shtm

“Establishes a comprehensive national policy on the continuity of federal government structures and operations and a single National Continuity Coordinator responsible for coordinating the development and implementation of federal continuity policies.”

“Assigns executive departments and agencies to a category commensurate with their COOP/COG/ECG responsibilities during an emergency.”

“Establishes a national strategy that will enable a level of public health and medical preparedness sufficient to address a range of possible disasters.”

Regarding the National Security Presidential Directive, specifically the directive NSPD 51 mentioned in the article, was not present in its entirety on the Homeland Security Site that I could locate. After seven hours of research, that’s not really surprising though. So, this is what I did find out regarding the NSPD 51:

The last two links are not mentioned within the article, but I found them of interest and thought you might like them for some rainy Sunday, when you had nothing better to do than make yourself crazy. They are as follows:

So, there are all those links for you to verify, and they certainly contain at least a few hours of light reading and entertainment. What remains is really the meat of the article. The MSEHPA or The Model State Emergency Health Powers Act. This sounds really official and important, but what it apparently started out as was a Draft of Discussion between academics at Georgetown and John Hopkins University. In fact, this is what it’s called and what they say the purpose was:

The Model State Emergency Health Powers Act

As of December 21, 2001

A Draft for Discussion Prepared by:

The Center for Law and the Public’s Health at Georgetown and John Hopkins Universities

For the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention [CDC]

To Assist:
National Governors Association [NGA]
National Conference of State Legislatures [NCSL]
Association of State and Territorial H

“The Act thus provides that, in the event of the exercise of emergency powers, the civil rights, liberties, and needs of infected or exposed persons will be protected to the fullest extent possible consistent with the primary goal of controlling serious health threats.”

Essentially, it’s nothing more than a “think tank” drafting up a “discussion,” which the states thought sounded like a good plan to follow. I also found — after extensive digging — a couple of other sources that were, if not fascinating reading, at least relevant and interesting. The Model State Emergency Health Powers Act State Legislative Activity Table, The Model State Emergency Health Powers Act Legislative Surveillance Table, PandemicFlu.gov State Pandemic Plans, and last, but not least, The State Quarantine and Isolation Laws.

This is obviously a ton of information to cross reference and it would take me the next two weeks just to read through it all. Instead of making myself blind and even more insane than I already am by tackling that amount of data, I’m simply going to provide you with the links so that you may research for yourself what these documents say. I do strongly recommend that you read your state’s preparedness plan and the laws they have enacted or revised to support it. There! That’s your homework assignment for the week.

The only other thing there is to discuss regarding these two articles is, who is Jane Burgermeister? Well, that’s still a mystery as far as I can find. Then again, I’m not a professional, so any of you that are, feel free to answer this question. The only thing I’ve been able to really ascertain is that Jane writes articles and they get posted on the Internet.

Below are a few links to her articles, but I did note that none of these articles were posted on any of the major news sites, but rather smaller Internet publications that I was unable to ascertain their level of commitment to verifying the research and validity of the news they report.

So, take that for what you will and I always recommend doing your own research on anything you read, whether it’s the Internet or the national news. Then again, I’m a paranoid sort of person, so what do I know? Here are the links for Jane’s articles:


I’d like to make one last little side note for these articles. I was able to find the NaturalNews.com article reposted on several sites. I will list them below, but I did note that none of the sites I will list have said they validate the information contained within the article. They have not said, “Yes, this is fact and a lawsuit has been filed by Jane.” So, take that for what you will, as well. Here are the links:

Now, all that resource checking and what not is certainly important, but in all my research yesterday, there was something else that the articles made me go in search of. I suddenly wanted to know exactly what laws we had waiting in the wings that dealt specifically with vaccinations. Boy, did I bark up the wrong tree! I’m going to simply list the information below for you to check out for yourself, so that if you have no desire to witness my frothing at the mouth over these laws, you can be spared. They are as follows:

NOTE: Anyone who has a better understanding of the law, who would be interested in reviewing this Act for our readers, we would be most appreciative, because quite frankly, it gave me a headache. Sheesh!

HR 2596 is the first Act that I’d like to speak about. Now, I’m not a lawyer, nor a political analyst, so my commentary on these Acts, are only my opinion. My opinions are, of course, based on my ideas, my thoughts, my experiences, and my knowledge base. So, take that into account if you disagree with anything I say or have said. I am not an expert and I don’t claim to be. If you have an opinion that differs from mine, we’d love to hear about it. Now, you’ve been given the official “non-official” disclaimer, and I can proceed to froth at the mouth, because this ACT just makes me insane. It’s a piece of legislation that is geared specifically to our children, and it’s unbelievable what they think they can get away with and expect that we’re just going to say, “Sure, have at it.” I recommend everyone contact their state representatives and yell at them about this Act. In fact, I recommend you yell at every state government official about this piece of useless, and potentially deadly, piece of legislation.

It’s called the “No Child Left Unimmunized Against Influenza Act of 2009,” and it wants to give the Secretary of Health and Human Services authority to carry out a “demonstration” program to “test” the feasibility of using the Nation’s elementary and secondary schools as influenza vaccination centers.

Throughout the history of the United States, there has been strong opposition to the laws that make it mandatory for our children to be vaccinated before they can attend a public school. I found a fascinating read on this topic within the Georgetown University archives on the Historical, Social and Legal Perspectives of School Vaccination Requirements.

While I won’t go into all the salient points, I will say that it is well worth reading. Especially since the government is taking this concept of forced vaccinations even further. Instead of just saying, if you want your child to go school, you have to get them vaccinated. They are planning to make the very school a vaccination department and even make parents and others in the community take mandatory vaccinations at the school.

On that note, let’s get into the actual Act itself. Please, excuse any ranting and raving I may do, and just know that it’s due to a new disorder called “overlegislativitis” and I’m currently seeking treatment.

HR 2596

111th CONGRESS
1st Session
H. R. 2596

To authorize the Secretary of Health and Human Services to carry out a demonstration program to test the feasibility of using the Nation’s elementary and secondary schools as influenza vaccination centers.

IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

May 21, 2009

Mr. GENE GREEN of Texas (for himself and Mr. TIM MURPHY of Pennsylvania) introduced the following bill; which was referred to the Committee on Energy and Commerce, and in addition to the Committee on Education and Labor, for a period to be subsequently determined by the Speaker, in each case for consideration of such provisions as fall within the jurisdiction of the committee concerned
________________________________________
A BILL

To authorize the Secretary of Health and Human Services to carry out a demonstration program to test the feasibility of using the Nation’s elementary and secondary schools as influenza vaccination centers.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,

SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.

This Act may be cited as the ‘No Child Left Unimmunized Against Influenza Act of 2009’.

SEC. 2. FINDINGS.

The Congress finds as follows:

(1) The influenza is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses. The best way to prevent the influenza is by getting a influenza vaccination each year.

I have not personally seen any significant data saying without doubt that the “best” way to avoid the flu is through influenza vaccination. In fact, in the past, otherwise healthy people were told they didn’t need to get vaccinated against the common flu, only the elderly. When did this health policy change? Perhaps it changed when a new strain of influenza was suddenly introduced into the world community. Perhaps it was introduced when big pharmaceutical companies became big money?

(2) Every year in the United States, on average, more than 200,000 people are hospitalized from influenza-related complications, and about 36,000 people die from influenza-related causes.

I think the term, “influenza-related causes,” is an important distinction in this sentence. What good does it do someone to have a vaccination, if the illness isn’t going to be prevented by it, and instead they get pneumonia? Isn’t that an influenza-related cause? In fact, the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) have been rather quiet on the number of pneumonia deaths this year that are “influenza-related” in cause.

Here’s something to think about, how many people are healthy before they get an immunization they didn’t need, only to end up sick with it anyway? I know that I personally hear every year from people within my family and community, “I got the flu right after I got the vaccination,” or some such variation of the same sentiment. In addition, when you go to get your flu vaccination, the doctor will tell you that you may experience mild flu-like symptoms after the injection. Well, that’s because you just gave me the flu! Oh, and wait for it, it may not even be the flu that’s currently circulating through the population. In fact, most likely, it’s last year’s flu vaccination. So, now you get the new flu AND the old flu, all for the price of a 300% healthcare system markup. Yippee!

Question – What would happen if we stopped pumping everyone with old flu vaccinations, which are manufactured by the corrupt pharmaceutical companies and God knows what they actually put in the damn things. Perhaps it’s the Swine Flu, but I digress.

What would happen if we stopped these flu vaccinations? Would the flu stop mutating into other forms? Would our immune system have better luck fighting off a flu that hasn’t mutated since we have previously been exposed? Now, this is just a hypothetical question, since I’m not a biochemist or a virologist. However, if you are one of those things, please feel free to answer the above questions. I, for one, would like to hear what might hypothetically happen if we stopped taking the flu vaccination. Note that I did say “flu” vaccinations throughout this section. I do not, in any way, think we should stop vaccinations for things such as small pox and polio. Just to be clear on that note.

(3) The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices recommends routine influenza vaccination for all children aged 6 months through 18 years with influenza vaccine, effective July 1, 2008.

If the CDC recommends it, does this mean they want to make it mandatory? I mean, they already make voluntary immunizations mandatory by telling children they can’t be educated if they don’t comply. While I do have the right to refuse medical treatments in general, apparently if it’s a pandemic and a national public health disaster, the Secretary of Health and Human Services can do whatever the hell they want. I can refuse a vaccination for my child under the premise that it’s logically unsound, medically unproven, and potentially harmful due to the rapid development of the supposed vaccination, but the government can ignore my concerns and do what they want with MY child regardless. Funny how the World Health Organization just happened to declare a worldwide pandemic.

(4) Children 2 to 17 years of age are twice as likely to get influenza as adults, including the elderly.

If this is the case, why is everyone so shocked at the number of children contracting the swine flu? Why are school-aged children suddenly MORE at risk this year for the flu than they were last year, 10 years ago, hell, 20 years ago? The answer to that is they weren’t until the swine flu was manufactured and entered into the general world population.

According to the California Department of Health Services Pandemic Influenza Preparedness and Response Plan:

“Seasonal influenza is a yearly occurrence that kills primarily persons aged 65 and older and those with chronic health conditions and causes significant economic impact. Those who are exposed, but do not succumb, develop immunity to the strain circulating that year.”

This seems to directly contradict the above finding in this particular Act. Not only does it say that elderly people are more at risk, but that when we are exposed, we develop an immunity to the strain of flu circulating that year. Which of course this year would be the mysteriously appearing swine flu or H1N1 to the “cover your ass” governmental agencies of the world.

(5) School-aged children are the population group most responsible for transmission of contagious respiratory viruses, including influenza.

Once again, when did this become news and why the sudden urgency? Kids breed germs. Big surprise! In fact, that’s a good thing according to most doctors. Kids that have gone to pre-schools in the past, contract germs, get sick, and THEN develop an immune system. Immune systems cannot function properly if they’ve never been exposed to the virus or germ. This is how it works.

Hey, the biggest germ they get exposed to is, in fact, the flu. Good old fashioned, regular flu. No one cared about it until now, did they? In fact, your doctor would tell you that it’s no big deal. If they become dehydrated, give them fluids, Tylenol for a fever and call if anything gets worse. So, basically, no biggie. They’ll live. Now comes legislation saying that it’s imperative we vaccinate. Not only that, but it’s so serious that we need to do it at the schools, and no doubt take away freewill and make it MANDATORY.

(6) The elderly and young children are the most vulnerable population to severe illness from influenza due to weaker immune response to vaccination. Experts have recognized that the best way to protect the elderly from influenza may be to vaccinate children.

If they have a weaker immune response to vaccination, why in the hell should it be necessary to vaccinate them? For God’s sake, if it’s a weaker immune response, what’s the point? And the premise that protecting elderly people by vaccinating children is ridiculous. It’s as likely to help the elderly as washing your hands before entering their home. But what about adults who get it and die from it? Those 36,000 deaths are by adults, not children. Do they become a health risk to the elderly as well? Maybe we should just isolate the elderly and not let them see anyone outside of a plastic bubble room. Oh hey, that would be inhumane, so let’s quarantine anyone not willing to vaccinate themselves or their children, since they are obviously so selfish. The whole thing is ridiculous and again I ask, why the urgency now, if the Swine Flu is supposed to be so mild in comparison to the “regular” seasonal flu?

(7) School-based vaccination programs are effective and cost-saving ways to vaccinate children while reducing transmission and infection rates to the larger community and at the same time reducing rates of school absenteeism due to influenza.

Ummm… I’m calling “Bullshit” on this one! What school-based vaccination programs? I’m 38 and I’ve never seen, heard or witnessed a school-based vaccination program in my lifetime, so how can they possibly say they are effective? Based on what data? The 1918 Small Pox outbreak or some other obscure, irrelevant study?

Cost-saving? How so, when schools are not equipped medically to administer shots? In fact, they won’t even give you a Tylenol in school without written permission. So, now they’re just going to shoot my kid up with the mystery cocktail and it’s supposed to be “all good.” I don’t think so. I still have yet to see any documentation that proves vaccinations prevent the spread and contraction of the flu. In fact, if it did, wouldn’t less and less people contract and die from it every year? Yet, those studies of flu deaths just stay the same, don’t they? Only that vaccinations might, and I stress the word “might,” make the symptoms of the flu less severe. As far as absenteeism goes, I think if the CDC tries to make this program mandatory, there’s going to be a great amount of absenteeism going around the U.S.

(8) Increased focus on providing influenza vaccine to children targeted for immunization will also help efforts to build a sound foundation for future vaccination efforts.

This means get them started young, get them started well and no one will complain later. I mean, God forbid we should QUESTION what we’re being shot up with. Three cheers for the pharmaceutical companies and their “screw America” agenda! Hip-Hip-Hooray!

(9) School-based vaccination programs also potentially represent the most feasible mechanism for community-based pandemic vaccination.

Now we get to the real meat of the issue. See, it’s not really about saving our children from the horrible flu and keeping them in school. It’s about the swine flu and the pandemic. The fact that they are planning contingencies for a community-based pandemic vaccination program is scary as hell. I’m sure its supposed to seem like it’s proactive, but once again comes the term mandatory. Will it be or won’t it? What happens if I refuse the assistance of this so called community-based pandemic vaccination program? Imprisonment, death, what?

(10) Increased participation in annual influenza vaccination programs builds the infrastructure necessary for pandemic vaccination.

Once again, lead the sheep into the corral and shoot’em up. If we get them used to it, they’ll just let us shoot them up with anything, as long as we call it a pandemic first.

(11) School-based programs will investigate the feasibility of conducting mass immunization clinics and build partnerships with local public health teams, in the event of a public health emergency.

If we have a major public health emergency, like swine flu (hint, hint), is my child going to be at school? No, I don’t think so. Why can’t the local public heath department open its doors and do the vaccinations? Why enlist the help of the school at all? Should they ask for community volunteers in the event of a pandemic or some other public health emergency? Of course. I just disagree with our PUBLICLY FUNDED schools becoming health clinics full of social service agendas and mass government regulations.

SEC. 3. DEMONSTRATION PROGRAM USING ELEMENTARY AND SECONDARY SCHOOLS AS INFLUENZA VACCINATION CENTERS.

(a) In General- The Secretary of Health and Human Services, in consultation with the Secretary of Education and the Secretary of Labor, shall carry out a multistate demonstration program designed to test the feasibility of using the Nation’s elementary schools and secondary schools as influenza vaccination centers in coordination with school nurses, school health care programs, local health departments, community health care providers, State insurance agencies, and private insurers.

Exactly HOW are they going to TEST this and why is it being called a DEMONSTRATION?

(b) Program Description

(1) VACCINATION

(A) CHILDREN COVERED BY OTHER FEDERAL PROGRAMS- For children who are eligible under other federally funded programs for payment of the costs of purchasing and administering the influenza vaccine, the Secretary shall not use the demonstration program under this section to supplant payment of such costs.

According to The Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary, the word “supplant” means to supersede (another) especially by force or treachery. Or to eradicate and supply a substitute for. Or to take the place of and serve as a substitute for especially by reason of superior excellence or power. “Supersede” means to cause to be set aside or to force out of use as inferior or to take the place or position of or to displace in favor of another. “Eradicate” means to pull up by the roots or to do away with as completely as if by pulling up by the roots. Superior means situated higher up or of higher rank, quality, or importance, or courageously or serenely indifferent or greater in quantity or numbers or excellent of its kind.

This section seems to mean that if you are already being paid for by the federal government in relation to health care, they won’t strong arm payment for it while telling you that you have to go to their vaccination school center.

(B) CHILDREN COVERED BY PRIVATE HEALTH INSURANCE- For children who have private insurance, the Secretary shall work with the Secretary of Labor, State insurance agencies, and private insurers to ensure that such children have coverage for all reasonable and customary expenses, including the costs of purchasing and administering the vaccine, incurred when influenza vaccine is administered outside of the physician’s office in a school or other related setting.

If you’re lucky, you’re already getting your medical bills paid for off the backs of the working class Americans. However, those of you working and paying out the ASS for medical care, we’re going to charge you for the vaccination program we’re trying to cram down your throat. Don’t forget, we’ll be sure to jack up the price by 300% to offset the money we lose from those federally funded people.

(C) OTHER CHILDREN- To the extent to which payment of the costs of purchasing and administering the influenza vaccine for children is not covered through other federally funded programs or through private insurance, the Secretary may pay such costs through the demonstration program under this section.

The Secretary MAY pay for the cost. Note that it doesn’t say it will, just that it might. So, for the millions of Americans who make too much money for federally assisted healthcare and make too little money for private insurance… you’re shit out of luck (SOL) unless the Secretary is feeling giving. Yeah, that’ll happen. Not! It’s not like its going to be out of their pocket anyway, so regardless, the payment comes right back to the American working class. As usual. Lovely, right?

(2) ACIP RECOMMENDATIONS- The demonstration program shall be designed to administer vaccines consistent with the recommendations of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices for the annual vaccination of all children aged 5 years through 19 years.

ACIP Recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control says in regards to vaccinations of all adolescents ages 11-21:

“This new strategy emphasizes vaccination of adolescents 11-12 years of age by establishing a routine visit to their health-care providers. Specifically, the purposes of this visit are to a) vaccinate adolescents who have not been previously vaccinated with varicella virus vaccine, hepatitis B vaccine, or the second dose of the measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine; b) provide a booster dose of tetanus and diphtheria toxoids; c) administer other vaccines that may be recommended for certain adolescents; and d) provide other recommended preventive services.”

Everything in this paragraph is fine until we get to subsections c and d. What other vaccines may be recommended specifically and why to only “certain” adolescents and what other recommended preventive services will be provided… specifically?

There’s a bunch more to review and read on this list of recommendations from the CDC, so I strongly suggest you give it a look over. If you come across anything of special interest, please post your comment or submit an article. We’d love to hear from you.

(3) LOCATIONS

(A) SELECTION- The Secretary, in consultation with the Secretary of Education, shall select the elementary schools and secondary schools to participate in the demonstration program.

The Secretary gets to decide where to administer this demonstration, who gets paid for and who is “S-O-L.” Sounds like a whole lot of control for one little Secretary.

(B) SELECTION CRITERIA- The schools selected under subparagraph (A) shall include elementary schools and secondary schools

(i) located in at least 10 metropolitan regions in at least 10 States and serving primarily low-income public school student populations; and

Here we go… Let’s experiment on the poor. Let’s get the biggest population of poor Americans and inject them with a mystery cocktail and see what happens, while we bill everyone we can think of for as much as we can reasonable get.

(ii) located in at least 5 major areas in at least 5 States served by rural school districts.

Don’t forget to go after the most freedom-loving Americans in the U.S., the Midwest rural areas. If they refuse to participate in your demonstration program, what then? Chains and concentration camps?

(4) VOLUNTARY PARTICIPATION- Participation in the demonstration program by a school or an individual shall be voluntary.

Isn’t this what they always say? It’s voluntary, but you know if you don’t get them, they won’t let you into school in the fall. They do that with current vaccinations for things such as polo and small pox. Why wouldn’t they do that now with the so called “flu.” Yeah, it’s a voluntary program until the Secretary of Health and Human Services decides it’s in the public’s best interest to hold you down and inject you, regardless of your rights under the U.S. Constitution.

(5) DURATION- The demonstration program shall be conducted for the 2010-2011 and 2011-2012 influenza seasons.

How is this going to help anything if the swine flu does, in fact, prove itself to be the most deadly virus since the black plague? If it is and it does, it will happen this fall, 2009, when the second infection wave comes around. 2010 will be a day late and a dollar short. 2011… why bother at that point?

(6) CHOICE OF VACCINE- The demonstration program shall not restrict the discretion of a health care provider to administer any influenza vaccine approved by the Food and Drug Administration for use in pediatric populations.

So, it won’t restrict the discretion of a healthcare provider to administer any flu vaccine approved by the FDA. What about if the healthcare provider refuses to administer what the FDA has approved? What then? In any case, it’s the health insurance that chooses what is administered to patients, not the physician. Just look at any standard treatment of care for any illness or injury in the U.S. The standard of treatment is set by the insurance company, by the way.

(c) Report- Not later than 90 days following the completion of the demonstration program under this section, the Secretary shall submit to the Committees on Education and Labor, Energy and Commerce, and Appropriations of the House of Representatives and to the Committees on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions and Appropriations of the Senate a report on the results of the program. The report shall include—

They have a whole 90 days of data gathering to determine if it’s something that we in the U.S. should do. I thought it was standard for the FDA to make us wait years and years for proper research and documentation to be done for any new drug or device under investigation for validity. But when it comes to those poor city kids and isolated country children, what does it matter? 90 days is long enough.

(1) an assessment of the influenza vaccination rates of school-aged children in localities where the demonstration program is implemented, compared to the national average influenza vaccination rates for school-aged children, including whether school-based vaccination assists in achieving the recommendations of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices for annual influenza vaccination of all children aged 6 months to 18 years;

This program has nothing to do with the effectiveness of a particular flu vaccination, but rather with how many they can inject in the shortest amount of time

(2) an assessment of the utility of employing elementary schools and secondary schools as a part of a multi-state, community-based pandemic response program that is consistent with existing Federal and State pandemic response plans;

What!? Anyone up to translating this into English?

(3) an assessment of the feasibility of using existing Federal and private insurance funding in establishing a multi-state, school-based vaccination program for seasonal influenza vaccination;

So, you the tax payers will pay and then pay again since you can’t qualify for federal help. We’ll stick ya at school and stick ya in the pocket book and you’ll end up sick in body, mind and spirit.

(4) an assessment of the number of education days gained by students as a result of seasonal vaccinations based on absenteeism rates;

This data can be properly assessed within the 90 day time period naturally. I don’t think so.

(5) a determination of whether the demonstration program under this section—

(A) was successful; and

What exactly are the “parameters” for success and where can I find them?

(B) was implemented for sufficient time for gathering enough valid data; and

I would say 90 days is NOT sufficient time and the answer to this would be an unequivocal NO before it even begins.

(6) a recommendation on whether the demonstration program under this section should be continued, expanded, or terminated.

Continued, with the people’s approval, of course… right? …ummmm… I don’t think so, even if we are footing the bill and getting shot in the ass. Expanded… In what way? Why don’t they elaborate on what an expansion of the program would be. Are we talking more regions, more schools, etc., or more and more people being forced to get shots?

(d) Definitions- In this section:

(1) The terms ‘elementary school’ and ‘secondary school’ have the meanings given such terms in section 9101 of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (20 U.S.C. 7801).

(2) The term ‘low-income’ means at or below 200 percent of the income level specified in the most recent applicable version of the Department of Health and Human Services Poverty Guidelines per person in a family unit.

(3) Except as otherwise specified, the term ‘Secretary’ means the Secretary of Health and Human Services.

(e) Authorization of Appropriations- To carry out this section, there is authorized to be appropriated $5,000,000 for each of fiscal years 2010 through

Essentially, they want $10,000,000 of the U.S. tax payers’ hard earned cash to inject us with a rushed vaccination that could prove lethal at worst and ineffective at best.

Onward then, to the next bit of government legislative drivel that drives me to foam and froth at the mouth. I get so unbelievably upset at the amount of government intervention in the private lives of Americans and even more upset at the state of apathy most Americans seem to operate in. The next bit of legislation, though, makes me laugh as much as it makes me curse. It’s called HR2618, Vaccine Safety and Public Confidence Assurance Act of 2009. Are you ready? ‘Cuz I sure wasn’t.

HR2618
Vaccine Safety and Public Confidence Assurance Act of 2009

SEC. 3. PURPOSE.

The purpose of this Act is to direct that vaccine safety monitoring and research focus on active surveillance, researching biological mechanisms for acute and chronic adverse events following vaccination, developing prevaccination screening methods within a framework that is free from actual and perceived biases, and developing a vaccine safety research agenda.

Isn’t this what we have the FDA and the CDC for in addition to the WHO?

SEC. 2148. AUTHORIZATION OF APPROPRIATIONS.

‘There is authorized to be appropriated—

‘(1) for conducting and supporting research under this subtitle, $80,000,000 for fiscal year 2010; and

‘(2) for carrying out responsibilities under this subtitle other than the conduct or support of research, such sums as may be necessary for fiscal year 2010.’.

Yes, they said $80,000,000 to assure you, the American public, that the vaccinations you are voluntarily forced to give your child are safe. I will leave you the choice of whether or not you read the whole Act. I found the whole thing ridiculous and offensive. The taxpayers of the United States of America are already overburdened with excessive taxation and overly governed by the bureaucrats of both the federal and state governments. But shoot, what’s another couple million dollars when $700 billion — oh, excuse me, how many trillions of dollars are we up to now — was just yanked out of the collective grasp without so much as a by your leave?

So, I’m going to let the overpriced consumer cheerleading Act go for now and move on to something truly scary and sickening. The Mercury-Free Vaccines Act of 2009, known as HR 2617.

HR2617
Mercury-Free Vaccines Act of 2009

111th CONGRESS
1st Session
H. R. 2617

To amend the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act to reduce human exposure to mercury through vaccines.

Please note that the verbiage here says “reduce” not eradicate.

IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

May 21, 2009

Mrs. MALONEY (for herself, Mr. SMITH of New Jersey, Mr. KENNEDY, Mr. BURTON of Indiana, and Mr. ACKERMAN) introduced the following bill; which was referred to the Committee on Energy and Commerce

________________________________________
A BILL

To amend the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act to reduce human exposure to mercury through vaccines.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,

SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.

This Act may be cited as the ‘Mercury-Free Vaccines Act of 2009’.

SEC. 2. FINDINGS.

The Congress finds as follows:

(1) In July 1999, the Public Health Service and the American Academy of Pediatrics issued a joint statement, which was later endorsed by the American Academy of Family Physicians, proclaiming: ‘[The] Public Health Service, the American Academy of Pediatrics, and vaccine manufacturers agree that thimerosal-containing vaccines should be removed as soon as possible. Similar conclusions were reached this year in a meeting attended by European regulatory agencies, the European vaccine manufacturers, and the US FDA which examined the use of thimerosal-containing vaccines produced or sold in European countries.’.

Removed as soon as possible? I thought this was supposed to have been done already?

(2) In July 2000, the Public Health Service, the Advisory Commission on Immunization Practices, the American Academy of Pediatrics, and the American Academy of Family Physicians issued a joint statement, providing: ‘The AAFP, [the] AAP, and the PHS in consultation with the ACIP reaffirm the goal set in July 1999 to remove or greatly reduce thimerosal from vaccines as soon as possible for the following reasons: (1) the removal or substantial reduction of thimerosal from vaccines is feasible, (2) the progress in removal which has been made to date is substantial, (3) the discussions between the Food and Drug Administration and the vaccine manufacturers in removing thimerosal are ongoing, and (4) the public concern about the use of mercury of any sort remains high. Based on information from the FDA and manufacturers, the PHS projects that the United States will complete its transition to a secure routine pediatric vaccine supply free of thimerosal as a preservative (i.e., at least two vaccine products each for Hep B, Hib, and DTaP) by the first quarter of 2001.’.

Nowhere does it say that mercury is BAD for babies and children who are routinely being injected with it. It just says that our public concern remains high. As it apparently should according to what I’ve read in this Act.

(3) The Institute of Medicine’s Immunization Review Committee concluded that significant reasons existed for continued public health attention to concerns about thimerosal exposure and neurodevelopmental disorders and recommended the removal of thimerosal from vaccines administered to children and pregnant women.

Essentially, they say yes, we have reason to have concerned. Sheesh! However, they’re going to spend $80,000,000 telling you why you should NOT be concerned and how they have it all under control.

(4) Federal regulatory agencies and manufacturers have taken positive steps to remove thimerosal from some medical products, most notably routinely administered childhood vaccines.

Yet again, not ALL, not even MOST, but the verbiage is SOME.

(5) Considerable progress has been made in reducing mercury exposures from childhood vaccines, yet 10 years after the July 1999 statement, thimerosal remains in several nonroutinely administered childhood vaccines and many pediatric and adult influenza vaccines.

Oh yeah, step right up folks and get your flu vaccines today. They’re GOOD for you!

(6) There is no law or regulation to prohibit the reintroduction of thimerosal into any products from which it has been removed, leaving open the possibility that it may be reintroduced at some point in the future in new vaccines or vaccines from which it has already been removed.

So, thimerosal is lethal and we’re telling the pharmaceutical companies they have to remove SOME of it, but not all. And by the way, we’re not making it illegal to use this drug in the future, so go ahead and feel free to sneak it back in there at a later date. That’s if they even bother to take it out in the first place.

(7) The Environmental Protection Agency has estimated that as many as 1 in 6 infants are born with a blood mercury level that exceeds the Agency’s safety threshold.

Great, infants are BORN with more mercury than they need, then the scum sucking pharmaceutical companies inject them with more and then say they removed SOME of the mercury when CONCERNS for public health run amok. We’re such drama queens aren’t we?

(8) Cumulative exposures to mercury, a neurotoxin, are known to cause harm, particularly in young children and pregnant women.

Really? Good God, why didn’t we know this!? Oh wait, we do and yet it’s still being used and will apparently continue to be used, regardless of the public outcry. Hip-hip-hooray for public heath and safety!

(9) Taking steps to reduce mercury exposures through vaccines is an important way to reduce direct exposures to mercury and mercury compounds.

Do you really think so? Question… Why, after 10 years, do we still have mercury in our vaccinations?

SEC. 3. BANNED MERCURY-CONTAINING VACCINES.

(a) Prohibition- Section 501 of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (21 U.S.C. 351) is amended by adding at the end the following:

‘(j) If it is a banned mercury-containing vaccine under section 351B of the Public Health Service Act.’.

What is it with this IF stuff? All mercury should be banned in any and all injections that are supposed to be used to promote public health — period — end of discussion.

(b) Amendment to PHSA- Title III of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 241 et seq.) is amended by inserting after section 351A the following:

‘SEC. 351B. BANNED MERCURY-CONTAINING VACCINES.

‘(a) In General- For purposes of section 501(j) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act, and subject to subsection (b), a vaccine is a banned mercury-containing vaccine under this section if 1 dose of the vaccine contains 1 or more micrograms of mercury in any form.

Again, what is with the IF? It should be any and all vaccines with any mercury at all, even a microgram should be banned.

‘(b) Public Health Emergency Exception-

‘(1) EXCEPTION- Section 501(j) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act shall not apply to a vaccine during the effective period of a declaration issued by the Secretary for such vaccine under this subsection.

What?! Here we go with the exception list and exemption list already. How many mercury laden vaccines are out there that fall under this little obscure piece of legislation meant to cover the backside of big business, large though it may be.

‘(2) DECLARATION- The Secretary may issue a declaration concluding that an actual or potential bioterrorist incident or other actual or potential public health emergency makes advisable the administration of a vaccine described in subsection (a) notwithstanding the mercury content of such vaccine.

So, if the government determines that we’re all being attacked with a bioterrorist virus, say the swine flu, they can inject us with any mystery substance they want, even if it kills 90% of the people injected. Lovely. Hip-hip-hooray!

‘(3) LIMITATION- The Secretary—

‘(A) shall specify in any declaration under this section the beginning and ending dates of the effective period of the declaration; and

‘(B) may not specify any such effective period that exceeds 12 months.

‘(4) RENEWALS- At the end of the effective period of any declaration under this section, the Secretary, subject to paragraph (3), may issue another declaration for the same incident or public health emergency.

So, instead of just saying you MUST remove it forever, they are going to keep declaring public heath emergency incidents involving the same topic over and over again, thus dragging out their collective legislative backstabbing.

‘(5) PUBLICATION- The Secretary shall promptly publish each declaration under this section in the Federal Register.

‘(c) Effective Dates- This section applies only to the introduction, or delivery for introduction, of a banned mercury-containing vaccine into interstate commerce on or after the earlier of the following:

‘(1) January 1, 2010, if the vaccine is listed in the January 2009 version of the recommended childhood and adolescent immunization schedule of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (other than an influenza vaccine).

It’s ok if it’s deadly to our children or if it will deform them for life, we won’t ban it for a full year because that’s reasonable… Right. If it causes mass death or illness and sickness, it’s only reasonable that the manufacturers should be given a grace period to decide how many micrograms of it they can get away with keeping in there. Right? Hip-hip-hooray!

‘(2) January 1, 2011.’

Great! Why not TWO years instead of one?

SEC. 4. RESTRICTIONS ON ADMINISTRATION OF MERCURY-CONTAINING INFLUENZA VACCINES TO CHILDREN AND PREGNANT WOMEN.

(a) Application- This section applies only to a vaccine that—

(1) is a banned mercury-containing vaccine (as that term is defined in section 351B(a) of the Public Health Service Act (as amended by section 3));

(2) is an influenza vaccine; and

(3) is manufactured for use in the 2009-2010 influenza season or any subsequent period.

(b) Restrictions on Administration of Vaccine to Children- Any approval by the Secretary of Health and Human Services of a biologics license under section 351 of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 262) for any vaccine described in subsection (a) shall provide that such vaccine is being approved as a biological product subject to subpart H of part 314 of title 21, Code of Federal Regulations (or any successor regulations). Under such subpart H, the Secretary shall establish the following restrictions on the distribution of the vaccine:

(1) Effective July 1, 2009, the vaccine shall not be administered to any child under the age of 3 years old.

After 3 years of age, you take what you get and live with the adverse side effects. Suck it up, you bunch of whiners!

(2) Effective July 1, 2009, if the vaccine contains thimerosal, the vaccine shall not be administered to any pregnant woman.

Gee, that’s so nice of them to spell that out, yet it says thimerosal, not mercury.

(3) Effective July 1, 2010, the vaccine shall not be administered to any child under the age of 6 years old.

After 6 years of age, you take what you get and live with the adverse side effects. Deal with it, cry babies!

(c) Transitional Provision- In the case of a biologics license under section 351 of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 262) that was approved before the date of the enactment of this Act for a vaccine described in subsection (a)—

(1) at the request of the holder of the license, the Secretary shall modify the license to include the restrictions described in subsection (b); or

(2) if the holder of the license fails to submit such a request, the Secretary shall revoke the license as applied to vaccines manufactured for use in the 2009-2010 influenza season or any subsequent period.

(d) Public Health Emergency Exception- This section shall not apply to a vaccine during the effective period of a declaration issued by the Secretary for such vaccine under section 351B(b) of the Public Health Service Act (as amended by section 3).

What!? Anyone with a law degree want to explain this one to the rest of us?

SEC. 5. INFORMATION ON MERCURY CONTENT.

Section 2126 of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 300aa-26) is amended by adding at the end the following:

‘(e) Mercury Content- Not later than 2 months after the date of the enactment of this subsection, the Secretary shall revise the vaccine information materials developed and disseminated under this section to ensure that, in the case of any vaccine described in subsection (a) that contains mercury, the materials include—

‘(1) a statement indicating the presence of mercury in the vaccine;

Where will this statement be posted in order for the public to determine a high risk to their health, their children’s health and that of any unborn child they may be having.

‘(2) information on the availability of any mercury-free or mercury-reduced alternative vaccine and instructions on how to obtain such alternative vaccine; and

Of course, the public, in general, who are so concerned, are going to know about this available information and know exactly how to get their insurance to pay for a vaccine that will no doubt be more expensive than the poison currently on the market. And of course, the insurance companies will just be THRILLED to pay for it and put it on their standard treatment of care. As if! Hip-Hip-Hooray!

‘(3) a recommendation against administration of any mercury-containing vaccine to a pregnant woman.’.

A “recommendation” against it, you have GOT to be kidding me. A recommendation! Where is the statement saying, “You inject a pregnant woman with this and you’ll lose your license to practice and your life,” just as her unborn child could?

SEC. 6. SENSE OF CONGRESS.

It is the sense of the Congress that the Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention should include, in any information disseminated by the Centers to the public or to health care providers relating to the administration of vaccines, a recommendation against administration of any thimerosal-containing vaccine to a pregnant woman.

Sense? Congress? No such animal exists, if they can only come up with a RECOMMENDATION against administration of any thimerosal-containing vaccine to a pregnant woman.

SEC. 7. REPORT TO CONGRESS.

Not later than 1 year after the date of the enactment of this Act, and annually thereafter, the Commissioner of Food and Drugs shall submit a report to the Congress annually on the progress of the Commissioner in removing mercury from vaccines.

A year to enact this farce of an act and every year after a reminder on the progress they’ve made in removing something they had a year to remove in the first place. Oh wait, they were supposed to remove it 10 years ago!

As you can see, I have ample reason to froth at the mouth. It gets worse, not better. So get yourself a drink or take a couple of deep breaths, because you are going to need it. I know I do! If S953, otherwise known as the Free Influenza Vaccine Program doesn’t make you foam and lather, well… you’re obviously dead.

S953
A bill to provide for the establishment of programs and activities to increase influenza vaccination rates through the provision of free vaccines.

Sited as the Seasonal Influenza and Pandemic Preparation Act of 2009

SEC. 2. FREE INFLUENZA VACCINE PROGRAM.

(a) Establishment- The Secretary shall establish a national voluntary influenza vaccination program for adults and children under which any individual may receive an influenza vaccine at no cost at any federally qualified health center, public or private hospital, physician office, clinic, or other entity determined appropriate by the Secretary.

So, we found out in the “Mercury Act” that the Secretary can make everyone take a vaccine that has mercury in it, if it’s determined to be a public health issue or pandemic. Then, we find out that all influenza vaccinations still have mercury in them and they have YEARS in which to remove it. Then, they come out with another act that wants to give us poison in an injection for free. Oh, how nice of them. Yet, if we go to a school demonstration program, we can have the pleasure of getting injected with poison AND paying for it. Gee, the generosity is overwhelming. And of course, all this was started in May 2009, just as the swine flu was making its rounds around the world and it still hadn’t been determined how deadly it’s going to be. So, they are going to give us the flu vaccine for free, but hey, guess what, the swine flu and the regular flu vaccine are NOT the same.

In fact, the CDC and the WHO have both stated that the regular flu vaccine will not keep you from getting the swine flu or lessen your symptoms from the swine flu. So, when these FREE programs get going, will they have a swine flu vaccination and will it be as poisonous as the 1970’s version of the same vaccination. By the way, there is no such thing as FREE when it comes to federal government legislation. All bills are eventually given to the American people and stamped paid in full, whether we agree or not.

SEC. 3. PUBLIC OUTREACH.

(a) In General- The Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shall establish and implement a national public affairs campaign, to be carried out through radio, television, print, and other media and methods determined appropriate by the Secretary, to increase influenza immunization rates.

(b) Authorization of Appropriations- There are authorized to be appropriated to carry out this section, $15,000,000 for fiscal year 2010, and such sums as may be necessary for each fiscal year thereafter.

So, it costs 15 MILLION DOLLARS to tell us to get vaccinations that are mercury laced and ineffective at this time against the number one threat, or potential threat, Swine Flu. Taxpayers bend over! Here’s your hard earned money at work.

Now, I’ll leave you to froth and foam on your own and try to get my heart rate back to normal. I’m sorry to have been so long winded. But truly, can you blame me? I started out researching a simple article. I wanted to verify its validity and see if, in fact, the U.S. Government was being sued. Instead, I got an eye opening shot to the ass! I sincerely hope I don’t have to stand in line this fall and volunteer to be forced to get another one. They do hurt after all.
