If injured, ‘you’re basically on your own … there’s no help out there’

From The Health Forum NZ (FB)

“Giselle was one of the first viral videos of a severe neurological injury following a CV V. Five months on she is still disabled and injured. Her story of being rejected by multiple hospitals and told “WE JUST DON’T KNOW HOW TO TREAT YOU”, is a common one that I have seen repeated over and over again in injury posts.

A Canadian MD gagged – says it is unethical to continue the CV vaccination with the injuries he’s seen so far (a must listen)

This Canadian MD, Dr Charles Hoffe, has administered 900 Moderna injections and observed a death and multiple neurological injuries, three are disabled. He has taken his concerns higher but is being gagged & accused of causing vaccine hesitancy. An absolute must listen … he describes the injuries in patients he’s treated for 28 years, formerly healthy individuals. He is also very concerned about miscarriages and the possible loss of ability to have children in the future.

This is a Doctor concerned about his oath to do no harm.

The forms required he said, for reporting injury, take half an hour to fill out, with no category included for the neurological injuries he is seeing! Doctors are not reimbursed for this half hour. Remember by comparison how large bonuses are paid to Doctors who ascribe death to covid even when relatives had said their loved one died of other causes?

LA police forcibly vaccinate the disabled

FORCIBLY INJECTING THE DISABLED … ABOUT AS LOW AS YOU CAN GO REALLY … Watch the video … if you can stomach it that is. Chasing down & holding down disabled people who clearly are not wanting the jab. What low life would even obey these orders? EWR

From Mark Crispin Miller

This is obliquely reminiscent of Hitler’s Aktion T4, extending the Nazis’ euthanasia
program to the disabled living in hospitals, mental institutions and nursing homes.The Nazis kept the program out of sight, having hidden the purpose of its preparatory data-gathering by representing it to the officials managing those facilities as routine questionnaires. That operation, and the Nazis’ other euthanasia programs, were “in many ways a rehearsal for Nazi Germany’s subsequent genocidal policies,” to quote the Holocaust Encyclopedia. https://encyclopedia.ushmm.org/content/en/article/euthanasia-program
Some day, it will be widely recognized that Hitler’s secret euthanasia drives were also a “rehearsal” of the democidal policies now being realized worldwide; and here again we see its purpose hidden, in the faux-altruistic guise of a great global effort to protect us—every single one of us—from that demonic “virus,”and its offspring, those killer “variants.” Note that the appalling video of those masked cops restraining, and injecting, that shrieking, terror-stricken woman is captioned, “HELPING PATIENTS RECEIVE THE COVID VACCINE.” Of course, the cops thus “helping” the disabled get those jabs sincerely think that’s what they’re doing, unlike the SS personnel who carried out Aktion T4—which makes what’s happening now—here, there and everywhere—much worse than what took place in Germany back then, because, this time around,the authors of this catastrophic global “crisis” have millions lining up to get those shots, willingly spending all their waking hours in masks—even after getting “vaccinated”—and voluntarily masking their own children, while staying far away from other people, doing everything online, and hating everyone who isn’t doing the same. Thus this “final solution”—as Bill Gates bluntly called it, on TV, in conversation with Stephen Colbert—is taking place not just on a far larger scale than Hitler’s, but with far more sophisticated mass manipulation (enabled by the universal grip of digital technology), as even—or especially—the most educated millions of its victims are all clamoring to board that train. MCM

LA police forcibly vaccinate the disabled

LifeSiteNews  Published April 13, 2021

Rumble — A video circulating on social media shows members of the Los Angeles Sherriff’s Department (LASD) forcibly injecting people who are disabled and mentally handicapped with Johnson & Johnson’s now-suspended COVID vaccine.

The LASD launched “Operation Homebound” – “a program to vaccinate the most underrepresented, homebound, and underserved disabled residents in our communities, including those experiencing homelessness” in January this year, according to the department website.

The footage shows two adults and a uniformed officer restraining a woman with special needs who is clearly terrified as a second uniformed officer jabs the needle into her arm.

Another clip shows a woman who is barely able to move and unable to speak being vaccinated. “It’s okay, hon. It’s okay. We just gave you a vaccination,” an officer says to the woman who appeared to be asleep and awoke when the injection went in her arm.

“The video is horrific,” psychiatrist Peter Breggin, a champion of the right to informed consent who successfully campaigned in the 1970s against the psychiatric practice of surgical lobotomy for mental illness, told LifeSiteNews.

French vigilantes kept disabling speed cameras last week as new government figures confirmed that accidents went down with fewer speed cameras.

The revolt of French citizens against speed cameras resulted in a record number of speed cameras being destroyed or otherwise disabled in 2019. Government officials warned that the lack of automated ticketing would have a demonstrably negative impact on road safety. The latest official accident tally, however, recorded 3239 road fatalities in 2019 — a 0.3 percent reduction compared to the prior year, and an all-time low. Injury accidents declined 1.1 percent.

The attacks continued last week. On Sunday, vigilantes in Crest fired two rounds into the speed camera on the RD538 in Crest. The device had just been installed four days earlier. On Saturday, the speed camera in Fitou was set on fire. Yellow spraypaint blinded the speed camera on the ring road in Toulouse, with multiple cameras covered throughout the area on Wednesday. On January 26, the turret speed camera on the RD944 in Molosmes was cut down just three days after it had been installed. A speed camera site was replaced by an impromptu art exhibit last week on the RD13 near Velle-le-Chatel. The six-foot-tall “Rat d’Art” was put in place on January 25.

Girl Commits Suicide After Gardasil Vaccine Destroys Her Life

Health Impact News

The VAXXED team recently interviewed a mother who tells about how her daughter took her own life after suffering from the Gardasil vaccine for several years.

A doctor in their church recommended the HPV vaccine to them. After receiving the second Gardasil vaccine at the age of 15, she became very lethargic and could hardly get out of bed, suffering from horrible headaches. They had to black out the light in her room because of the pain it caused, and she did not leave her bed for days.

Prior to the vaccine, she was healthy and active, and rarely missed a day of school.

The family had to hire a teacher to teach her sophomore year of high school since she could not leave her home.

After starting a very strict diet that an alternative health practitioner recommended, the family had some hope that she could recover.

But she battled depression, and it was learned from her journals after her death that she had a constant buzzing sound in her head. She had tried every anti-depressant drug on the market without success.

Listen to the whole tragic interview below.

Sacrificial Virgins – a doco about the HPV Gardasil vaccine – SHOCKING

Published on Mar 9, 2018

Is the next Thalidomide-style scandal about to break? The HPV vaccine is a treatment in widespread use but its efficacy in preventing cancer is medically unproven, while unintended, adverse reactions are blighting and even ending the lives of girls and young women across the world. However, pharmaceutical manufacturers and many health authorities are refusing to acknowledge there is a problem and the medical community is continuing to offer the vaccine.

Long-lived kea die after visit from DOC, who insisted on taking blood samples – long-term carers blame the department for their death (video)

This is a heart rending story. And one where surely insanity prevailed. Where did common sense go?

From stuff.co.nz

A Darfield family asked DOC not to take blood from their two 43-year-old kea, Casper and Stumpy. They did – and the birds were found dead less than 24 hours later.

A Darfield family blames the Department of Conservation (DOC) for the death of their beloved kea Casper and Stumpy.

The endangered alpine parrots have been part of Ron Stewart’s family since 1977 – but on Saturday morning he found them dead on the floor of their aviary.

Less than 24 hours earlier, a DOC ranger and veterinarian took blood samples from the birds despite Stewart pleading with them not to.

Kea Casper and Stumpy were found dead in their aviary on Saturday morning less than 24 hours after DOC staff took blood ...

TINA LAW/STUFF

Kea Casper and Stumpy were found dead in their aviary on Saturday morning less than 24 hours after DOC staff took blood and examined the birds.

DOC staff, “shocked” by the birds’ “unintended and deeply concerning” deaths, returned to uplift them for a necropsy on Monday. They were ordered from the property.

The birds, thought to be about 43 years old, were given to Stewart and his late wife Dawn, an internationally renowned parrot breeder, by DOC’s predecessor, the Wildlife Service,  in 1977.

Casper had a head injury and Stumpy’s leg had to be amputated. They were unlikely to survive in the wild.

If vaccines are so safe, why were drug companies given total liability protection from injuries & deaths, while YOU have none?

Dr Mercola
2011: “The Latest in Atrocious Supreme Court Decisions – Only 2 Justices Stand Up for Your Rights…”

The court decision leaves parents with no way to hold vaccine makers accountable and no feasible way to get compensation for the injuries suffered by their children; furthermore, the decision removes all financial incentive for multi-national drug companies to make vaccines as safe as they can be.

A U.S. Supreme Court decision has just given drug companies total liability protection for injuries and deaths caused by government mandated vaccines. The National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) called the decision a “betrayal” of the American consumer.

In a 6-2 decision, the Court majority voted to reject substantial evidence that current law was fully intended to protect an American’s right to sue a pharmaceutical corporation for injuries that could have been prevented if the company had elected to make a safer vaccine.

The court decision leaves parents with no way to hold vaccine makers accountable and no feasible way to get compensation for the injuries suffered by their children; furthermore, the decision removes all financial incentive for multi-national drug companies to make vaccines as safe as they can be.

According to EON:

“Hannah Bruesewitz was brain injured by DPT vaccine as a child but she was denied compensation by the U.S. Court of Claims, which administers the federal vaccine injury compensation program created by the 1986 Act that has turned away two out of three plaintiffs.

Her attorneys then sued in civil court, providing evidence that Wyeth-Lederle had the technology to produce a less reactive, purified pertussis vaccine but declined to do so.”

The Supreme Court ruled against Hannah’s family. Hannah, now 19, showed no symptoms of a seizure disorder before the vaccination, and a multitude of tests haven’t indicated any other cause.

Seizure disorders used to be listed on the Vaccine Injury Table, which is used by the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, but the listing was removed a month before the Bruesewitzes originally filed a vaccine injury petition in April 1995.

Guest Commentary by Barbara Loe Fisher

On February 22, 2011 the U.S. Supreme Court shielded drug companies from all liability for harm caused by vaccines mandated by government when companies could have made a safer vaccine. 1

From now on, drug companies selling vaccines in America will not be held accountable by a jury of our peers in a court of law if those vaccines brain damage us but could have been made less toxic. 2

If you get paralyzed by a flu shot or your child has a serious reaction to a vaccine required for school and becomes learning disabled, epileptic, autistic, asthmatic, diabetic or mentally retarded, you are on your own. 345678910111213141516

From now on – unless we stand up and draw the line on vaccine mandates – the government can legally use police powers to force every American to get hundreds of vaccinations or be punished while those, who are hurt by vaccination, can be more easily swept under the rug and left to fend for themselves. 17 18 19 20

Big Pharma Blackmailed Congress in 1982

To understand how this happened, we have to turn the clock back to 1982. That is when four big drug companies (Merck, Wyeth, Lederle, Connaught) blackmailed Congress by threatening to stop selling vaccines in America unless a law was passed giving them complete immunity from prosecution. 21

The pharmaceutical industry knew they were in big trouble because the old, crude whooping cough vaccine in the DPT shot was causing brain inflammation and death in many children; 22 the live oral polio vaccine was crippling children and adults with vaccine strain polio; 23

Americans were filing lawsuits to hold drug companies responsible for the safety of their products.

On February 23, 2011, one day after the Supreme Court blocked lawsuits against drug companies for failing to make vaccines safer, they cleared the way for lawsuits against car manufacturers for failing to make seat belts safer. 24

Civil Liability is a Consumer Protection

Civil liability is a consumer protection. In the past, civil liability has protected us from wealthy tobacco corporations selling cigarettes that were once endorsed by doctors and the U.S. government. 25 26

Civil liability has protected us from defective cars and toys and food and drugs that have passed federal licensing and safety standards. 27 28 29 30

Why Japan banned the MMR Vaccine in 1993

Japanese Government Continues to Ban the MMR Vaccine

Written By:

Missy Fluegge

The Japanese are regarded as some of the healthiest, longest living people on Earth. Is it a coincidence they also happen to be cautious regarding vaccines? 

This article was originally published on VacTruth.com and republished with permission. Original post here

For many years, controversy has surrounded the three-in-one vaccine against measles, mumps, and rubella. Most notably, the MMR vaccine is infamous for its disputed connection to autism, and despite the fact that it has been blamed in vaccine courts for causing autism, vaccine supporters still deny its fault in skyrocketing rates of autism spectrum disorder, which is at least one in 68 children, with even higher rates of diagnosis among boys. [1, 2]

However, the vaccine has other serious risks in addition to the relationship it has with unmanageable numbers of autism in children, which has led to a ban of this vaccine in one industrialized nation.

The Japanese government banned the measles, mumps, and rubella vaccine from its vaccination program in 1993, after a record number of children developed adverse reactions, including meningitis, loss of limbs, and death. [3]

Is Nazi Style Kidnapping Of Babies In Australia To Cover Up Vaccine Injured Children The Government’s New Desperate Strategy To Stop Vaccine Medical Fraud From Being Finally Exposed?

I’m reminded with this story of that of the Australian Police Sergeant who subsequently and predictably lost his career after exposing certain things about vaccine injury:

“AT the No Jab No Pay No Way rally in Brisbane Qld Australia former Sergeant of Police Chris Savage explains how police and doctors are conditioned to blame parents for vaccine injury and death. Former Sergeant of Police Chris Savage was working in the Queensland Police Service from 1990 to 2012. He was harmed in October 1989 by the Hep B vaccine which woke him up to the danger of vaccines, then during his career he attended sudden deaths of babies after vaccines. He would ask the parents what the baby’s health was like in the 2 months prior to vaccination …  the light would come on as they said their baby was healthy eating and sleeping … it was after the vaccine all hell broke loose with inconsolable crying, convulsions, seizures and then death. Brainwashed police are accusing the parents of Shaken Baby Syndrome. “… watch the video here.

From australiannationalreview.com

Three weeks ago, many Australians heard of the harrowing story detailing the bitter custody battle of a 4-year-old boy with cerebral palsy. His parents have fought an ongoing battle against the Lady Cilento Hospital and the QCS (Queensland Department of Child Safety), who allege the child is at risk of cardiac arrest because he had lost some weight. While this is true, the hospital fail to acknowledge that the child’s weight while on the prescribed cocktail of pharmaceuticals, including a “nutritional” formula fed via his peg (a button surgically inserted directly into his gut), put him on the morbidly obese end of the weight scale. The child also suffered relentless seizures that were not only uncontrolled, but greatly exacerbated by the allopathic care directed by the hospital. After deciding pharmaceuticals, which made him catatonic, and the toxic formula with a one year shelf life containing dairy, which the child is unable to tolerate, was not in their child’s best interests, the parents opted for a diet of organic puréed foods and the use of medical cannabis oil which saw his seizures reduce from approximately 100 per day, down to just 4 per week and up to 50 days seizure free provided he has regular bowel movements. This change in his diet resulted in the child losing weight however his weight still sat just a few grams shy of the medium weight for boys of his age with his condition. His parents also started noticing major improvements including his ability to follow his mother’s gaze, smiling, laughing, attempting to talk and hold objects, something he had not done since his last set of vaccines at 18 months of age.

Despite his miraculous improvements, nine unsuccessful custody attempts and two court hearings, both of which ruled in favour of the parents, the Lady Cilento Hospital in Brisbane together with QCS, have continued to vigorously and shamefully pursue custody of this child. A third court hearing was scheduled in Queensland this morning, which has since been adjourned for two weeks. Despite knowledge of a court hearing in just four days time, the New South Wales Family and Child Services (FaCS) together with a small army of police officers, barged into The Church of Ubuntu in Newcastle where the child and his parents sought refuge after a false amber alert issued by the Queensland Police, alleging they had kidnapped their son from a hospital appointment they had made. In a live recorded Facebook video, Police indicate to the mother that they can’t leave without the child, to which she replies “Over my dead body”. The police officer is then heard saying “I don’t want to have to do that”. According to the Police, and as evidenced by copies of the Court Orders uploaded to Facebook, FaCS allege the parents failed to return the child for a check up on May 17th at the John Hunter Hospital who had been caring for the child since the amber alert issued three weeks earlier. The order states that the child had “critically abnormal” potassium levels identified on May 1st. However, the mother repeatedly says to the officers “He had a blood test two days ago [May 17th]… I’ve got an appointment booked on Monday with the doctor at John Hunter Hospital”. A de-registered doctor, who has greatly assisted the family in healing their son, is also heard saying “You haven’t contacted the doctor who is taking care and responsibility [of this child]“. After much debate, they agreed to go to the John Hunter Hospital in Newcastle for observation.

Please Sign Our Petition to Stop the Sale of Horowhenua’s Community Housing

Stop the Sale of Horowhenua’s Community Housing

Campaign created by
Pam Vernon
EnvirowatchHorowhenua
Stop the Sale of Horowhenua's Community Housing

FROM THE NEW MAYOR, MICHAEL FEYEN who is in support of keeping our housing stock:“I support retaining community housing and obtaining the housing nz stock as well. HDC, iwi And Grey Power could form a trust or lease agreement:) HLC could conduct apprenticeships around building, plumbing, electrician, painters, etc to maintain and upgrade the increased housing stock. Great potential for HDC employment and community, with a business case:) I trust this petition gets support as it is vital for our districts future that we have affordable housing.”   

NOTE: In spite of his support the remainder of the Council is not in agreement on this.


THE PETITION
The Horowhenua District Council is tendering our stock of community housing for sale to an alternative community housing provider. Grey Power however, believes that provision of affordable housing must remain a core activity for central and local government…”The proposal to sell pensioner housing, a key determinant of community wellbeing, is a direct antithesis to community wellbeing”.

We also see the withdrawal of affordable housing for the elderly and disabled as a backward step especially in light of growing homelessness in our country. We believe that in the longer term, an alternative provider will place economic factors above caring for the elderly and therefore request that they halt the tendering of these properties for sale.

Why is this important?

In April this year the Horowhenua District Council announced it was tendering their stock of community housing for sale to an alternative community housing provider.

The justification given by councils NZ wide, including, Horowhenua, to cease providing housing, has been that Government withdrew its responsibility in this respect (including funding) some time back.

HDC insist they’ve identified that “the ‘most sustainable’ way forward for delivering pensioner housing was to transfer the stock and the responsibility to a housing provider that had the focus and resources to respond to the housing needs of the district.” At the same time they say they “… want to ensure that community housing in Horowhenua remains accessible and affordable, and is also connected to services that enhance social connectedness and wellbeing.”

Horowhenua’s Grey Power however, disagrees saying it is their belief that provision of affordable housing must remain a core activity for central and local government. “The proposal to sell pensioner housing, a key determinant of community wellbeing, is a direct antithesis to community wellbeing” they say, and “a council is in a position to see issues across its district and should have concerns about its constituency … a social housing provider will not have the same view.”

We also see the withdrawal of affordable housing for the elderly and disabled as a backward step. HDC state on their Positive Ageing Action Plan that “Horowhenua is a district that embraces its older residents as a highly valued integral part of the community”. We would like to see that plan include the option of the ongoing provision of affordable housing for the elderly, especially in the light of growing homelessness in our country. Handing over this responsibility to private and corporate interests is not going to guarantee they remain housed. A business will always strive to maximize profits and not to ensure the housing of the more vulnerable. It is simply not in their mandate. We therefore do not believe that any clause of sale that stipulates the needs of the elderly be considered will be effective, and that any such provision would eventually be discarded in favour of economic interests.

In line with their pledge to partnership, HDC have said that iwi and current tenants were consulted. Public feedback however is not confirming this. We would like to see some transparency on this pre sale history.

If you agree that the provision of community housing should remain a part of Council’s responsibility please sign our petition.

FDA Wants To Make Psychiatric Industry’s Billion Dollar Electroshock Therapy More Widely Available

6th April 2016

By Carolanne Wright

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

“The FDA has initiated a proposal that would reclassify Electroconvulsive Therapy Devices (ECT) from its current category as a high risk device, to a lower risk machine with less regulatory controls. This is despite the federal agency’s admission that the ECT device has not been proven safe and effective.” ~ CCHR Documentaries

The Judge Rotenberg Center (JRC) in Canton, Massachusetts has a long history of controversy for how it handles disabled children and adults. The school has been condemned by the United Nations Special Rapporteurs on Torture, a variety of disability groups, Massachusetts governor Deval Patrick, and an FDA advisory panel.

What is it about the school’s protocol that has attracted such criticism? The answer lies in the way the school handles “unacceptable” behavior — by using frequent electric shocks as punishment. Former teachers at Rotenberg have described how mentally challenged children would writhe on the floor, screaming in pain after receiving the shocks. And yet, the school still has around 200 students, with more referrals in the pipeline. Rotenberg is the only designated school in the United States that uses electric shock for behavioral management.
