“I feel it my duty to speak out against the new vaccine mandates” — Richard Moskowitz, MD

As a GP with more than 50 years’ experience in treating children and their families, I feel it my duty to speak out against the new vaccine mandates, for three main reasons.  The first is that there is no emergency to justify vaccinating children against their parents’ wishes, let alone keeping them out of school if they refuse. 

The second is that the research cited to prove that vaccines are safe and effective falls far short of the rigorous standards that valid medical science must follow.  The third is that the Nuremberg Code and the Helsinki Declaration, both of which we helped write and still profess to abide by, explicitly forbid any medical procedure, treatment, or experiment undertaken without the fully-informed consent of the recipient.

A NZ Doctor speaks on the PCR test & CV in NZ

See also Dr Sam Bailey’s follow up videos below on topic, having been ‘fact checked’ by you know who. EWR

Dr Sam talks about what is happening in NZ in regards to COVID-19 and important information you should know about the COVID-19 PCR Test. #covid19pcr#covid19test What is COVID-19? COVID-19 is a new illness that can affect your lungs and airways. It’s caused by a type of coronavirus. What are the symptoms of Coronavirus? The symptoms of COVID-19 are: * a cough * a high temperature (at least 38°C) * shortness of breath. These symptoms do not necessarily mean you have COVID-19. The symptoms are similar to other illnesses that are much more common, such as cold and flu. Shortness of breath is a sign of possible pneumonia and requires immediate medical attention. How Coronavirus spreads? COVID-19, like the flu, can be spread from person to person. When a person who has COVID-19 coughs, sneezes or talks, they may spread droplets containing the virus a short distance, which quickly settle on surrounding surfaces. That’s why it’s really important to use good hygiene, regularly wash and thoroughly dry your hands, and use good cough etiquette. Websites & References mentioned: 1.

Psychiatrist predicts the proposed IDSA guidelines could contribute to a “national and global epidemic of psychiatric illnesses”

‘..recommends against testing for Lyme disease …” the go-to of the current era, the modus operandi for ‘cover up big time’. The new norm. In NZ they don’t test for 1080 poisoning so as you won’t find it.  ‘Problem solved’. EWR

 


He points out that no psychiatrists sat on the guidelines panel. Yet, the IDSA recommends against testing for Lyme disease in adult patients with psychiatric illness.
“The proposed guidelines fail to recognize the clear causal association between Lyme disease and psychiatric illnesses in children and adults that may include suicide, violence, substance abuse and developmental disabilities. Suicide is a major cause of mortality in patients with Lyme disease.”

Psychiatrist Robert Bransfield predicts the proposed IDSA guidelines could contribute to a “national and global epidemic of psychiatric illnesses, suicide, violence, substance abuse and developmental disabilities in children and adults.”

Dr. Bransfield is an internationally recognized expert on how Lyme disease affects the brain. He has just published a scathing critique of the proposed IDSA Lyme guidelines as they relate to psychiatric conditions.

In an open-access article entitled Proposed Lyme Disease Guidelines and Psychiatric Illnesses, in the medical journal Healthcare, he calls the guidelines “evidence-biased” instead of “evidence-based.”

He points out that no psychiatrists sat on the guidelines panel. Yet, the IDSA recommends against testing for Lyme disease in adult patients with psychiatric illness. Furthermore, the guidelines recommend against Lyme testing for children with developmental, behavioral, or psychiatric disorders.

By 1963 when the measles vaccine was patented the measles mortality rate was about 1 in 500,000

“By the time the measles vaccine was patented in 1963 in the US, the mortality rate from measles was about 1 in 500,000.¹ This is less than your risk of death from falling off furniture.² Let’s also consider that over 600,000 people annually die of heart disease in the US, over 500,000 people die from cancer in the US each year and over 250,000 annually die from medical errors alone.³”


Measles Scare Tactics Hurt Us All

Posted on:

Written By: 

Anne Mason

So why is the media reporting tiny measles outbreaks as if the sky itself is about to fall? Doesn’t it seem as if everywhere you turn, another outbreak is reported with dire warnings that the unvaccinated are about to bring us an epidemic, the likes of which we’ve never seen? Kind of reminds you of the media frenzy over the Disneyland outbreak in 2014–2015, doesn’t it? That’s when Big Pharma focused their efforts on California and pushed through SB277, a law which removed religious and personal belief exemptions from the mandatory vaccine schedule in order for a child to attend daycare or school - public or private. Perhaps they figured that if they could manage to remove parental health choice in California, it would be a domino effect in the rest of the country.

And just in time for the start of state legislature sessions all over the country, Big Pharma has gotten the media onboard the measles terror train again. Over 70 vaccine related bills have been introduced across the country, and they are pulling out all stops to ensure that as many of their sponsored bills make it through to law.

What’s the big deal, you might ask? Well, the CDC vaccine schedule has become quite a doozy since vaccine manufacturers were released of all liability for injuries or death with the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act in 1986. Check out the current CDC schedule. 72 doses of vaccines by the time a child turns 18. Not quite the vaccine program of our youth. Children today are given more than 20x the doses of vaccines than my parents got. And it seems Pharma is pushing from all sides to make sure no one can avoid shooting their kids up with an insane number of doses of various cocktails of aluminumformaldehyde, human DNA, polysorbate 80, and viruses and bacteria grown on diseased tissue.

Misinformation abounds all over mainstream media where Big Pharma owns 70% of the advertising and therefore the narrative. Take a look at this opinion piece in Newsweek, which by the way, uses a doctored stock image of a healthy baby to look as if it has what the photoshop artist thinks is measles. It looks more like hives, but whatever. These days, accuracy is not the paramount concern for any major news outlet doing Pharma’s bidding.

This Newsweek piece is one of the most egregious and absurd pieces of Big Pharma propaganda I’ve seen yet. It distorts and misrepresents the history and dangers of the disease, the motivations of parents who choose to avoid or delay the vaccine, and it makes blatant false statements about the risks of the MMR vaccine itself. So let’s dissect it a bit to illustrate my point:

The piece states that, “According to the World Health Organization, 110,000 people die every year, mostly children under the age of five. Prior to the vaccine, the U.S. also experienced the horror of measles. The CDC reports that in the 1910s, about 6,000 Americans died annually from the infection.”

This is what we call truth wrapped in a distortion. First of all, the measles world-wide mortality stats are almost all the 3rd world and developing nations. The US did experience “the horror of measles” mortality rates, but the article’s use of “prior to the vaccine” is intended to give the false impression that the measles mortality rates “of about 6,000 Americans” were diminished by the vaccine, when in fact, the death rate had fallen to 364 deaths associated with measles the year the vaccine was introduced – 50 years after “6,000 Americans were dying annually from the infection.” To put this in perspective, twice as many people die annually from falling off furniture.¹⁰

As Dr. Suzanne Humphries and Roman Bystrianyk have detailed in their data packed book, “Dissolving Illusions: Disease, Vaccines and the Forgotten History,” child labor laws, sanitation, hygiene and improved standard of living and overall nutrition diminished the mortal threat of measles in the developed world – long before the vaccine even came on the scene.¹¹

Another excerpt from the Newsweek piece is, “Another fear, that there are ‘too many’ vaccines, is also false. When your child crawls around on the floor licking his hands, he is exposed to far more antigens than those found in all vaccines combined.”

This is designed to misinform the public about parents’ concerns about vaccines and to present vaccines as no different than natural pathogens your child may be exposed to in his or her environment. This could not be further from the truth. Vaccines are injected into the body – bypassing the normal routes of entry our immune systems are designed for – and the vaccines contain such combinations of substances and toxins like aluminum adjuvants, formaldehyde, human DNA, mercury, Polysorbate 80, and the live or attenuated bacteria or viruses which have been grown on animal organs.

Some vaccines contain more aluminum than can be considered safe for an adult male,¹² and the aluminum adjuvant artificially stimulates the developing baby’s immune system to respond opposite the way nature intended. Dr. Suzanne Humphries explains this in detail on her website, but essentially, while an infant’s immune cells have full functional capacity, they are clamped down by design during the first two years of life––in order that they learn self from non-self and also become able to differentiate between healthy, beneficial micro-organisms and those which should later be attacked.¹³ Perhaps this derailing of the child’s developing immune system is contributing to our society’s huge increase in auto-immune disorders––in which a person’s body begins to attack itself––as the vaccine schedule has also increased. It may also be contributing to the alarming incidence of autism during the same time period.¹⁴

And these concerns are not just theoretical. Vaccine injury and death is more common than widely believed, and parents who have witnessed their child descend into autism¹⁵ or develop Type 1 diabetes,¹⁶ leukemia,¹⁷ bleeding disorders,¹⁸asthma, and eczema¹⁹ following the MMR have become very cautious about the vaccine. It is estimated that only around 5% of vaccine adverse events are ever reported to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System––as most people and many health care professionals are unaware of its existence–– but in 2016 alone, 59,117 vaccine adverse effects, 432 vaccine deaths, 1091 permanent disabilities, 4,132 vaccine hospitalizations and 10,234 vaccine emergency room visits were reported.²⁰

And a recent study of vaccinated vs. unvaccinated children raised more concerns that vaccination is linked to chronic illness:²¹

https://www.facebook.com/plugins/video.php?href=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2FCMSRI.ChildrensMedicalSafetyResearchInstitute%2Fvideos%2F1600255030004296%2F&show_text=0&width=560

Neil Z. Miller has collected a remarkable number of studies in his thoroughly referenced “Miller’s Review of Critical Vaccine Studies.” His book is a wonderful resource for anyone interested in looking into these concerns and examines most of the studies referenced below – in addition to many others which suggest that natural measles infection actually protects against degenerative diseases, skin diseases, immunoreactive diseases, asthma, allergies and certain tumors. It also looks at studies which show that measles infection in childhood may protect against childhood leukemia, Hodgkin’s disease, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, genital cancer, prostate cancergastrointestinal cancerskin cancerlung cancer, ear-nose-and throat cancers, ovarian cancerheart attacks and strokes during adulthood.²²

This Newsweek piece accuses parents of spreading a “malicious lie” and “purposeful misinformation.” Ascribing malice to concerned and well-researched parents is not only absurd, but deliberately inflammatory and is clearly intended to villainize parents who thoughtfully and understandably question or don’t participate in the conventional vaccine program.

The piece also writes with confidence that, “Vaccines do not cause autism. This theory, which was spawned by a fraudulent get-rich scheme in the 1990s, has been shown repeatedly to be without any merit.”

This is simply untrue. And absurd. Dr. Andrew Wakefield, along with other scientists and doctors, conducted a study which found a link between children’s digestive and developmental issues soon after being administered the MMR vaccine. They concluded that a link with the MMR had not been proven, but that further study was warranted. That this could be described as a “get rich scheme” is laughable, and it has not “been shown repeatedly to be without any merit.”²³

This attempt at marginalizing and diminishing perfectly reasonable concerns expressed by doctors, scientists and parents, as well as vilifying anyone who questions the wisdom of the current vaccine program is not only unwarranted and unjustified, it is also remarkably stupid and unscientific. The only people profiting from such an approach are those making money from a market projected to be worth $50.42 billion by 2023.

The idea that we know everything there is to know about the immune system and the consequences of an ever increasing vaccine schedule is one few would actually agree with. Let’s bear this in mind as we move forward on this issue, and let’s learn how to spot the propaganda when we see it. Only then will true scientific method prevail.

Anti-Vaccine Japan Has World’s Lowest Child Death Rate & Highest Life Expectancy

From healingoracle.ch

Fact: Japan has the lowest infant mortality rate following ban on mandatory vaccinations, they urge other countries to follow this firm stance

The citizens of Japan are statistically proven to be the healthiest and longest-living people in the world. The country also has the lowest infant mortality rate on the planet. It may come as no surprise to many that the Japanese Government banned a number of vaccines that are currently mandatory in the United States and has strict regulations in place for other Big Pharma drugs and vaccines in general. Japan’s anti-vax policies have long been criticised by vaccine pushers in the US who claim that vaccinating the public “promotes health.”

However, Japanese people live longer, healthier lives than Americans, with babies born in the US twice as likely to die in infancy than those born in Japan. It’s clear to see that Western nations have a lot to learn from the Japanese when it comes to their approach to vaccinations and issues facing public health. The Japanese are vaccine sceptics, to put it simply, and due to adverse reactions suffered by Japanese children, have banned many vaccines.

DTP Vaccine Increases Mortality in Young Infants 5 to 10-Fold Compared to Unvaccinated Infants

From worldmercuryproject.org

By Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.

For many years, public health advocates have vainly urged the CDC and WHO to conduct studies comparing vaccinated vs. unvaccinated populations to measure overall health outcomes.  Now a team of Scandinavian scientists has conducted such a study and the results are alarming.  That study, funded in part by the Danish government and lead by Dr. Soren Wengel Mogensen, was published in January in EBioMedicine.  Mogensen and his team of scientists found that African children inoculated with the DTP (diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis) vaccine, during the early 1980s had a 5-10 times greater mortality than their unvaccinated peers.

The data suggest that, while the vaccine protects against infection from those three bacteria, it makes children more susceptible to dying from other causes.

The scientists term the study a “natural experiment” since a birthday-based vaccination system employed for the Bandim Health Project (BHP) in Guinea Bissau, West Africa had the effect of creating a vaccinated cohort and a similarly situated unvaccinated control group.  In the time period covered by this study, Guinea-Bissau had 50% child mortality rates for children up to age 5.  Starting in 1978, BHP health care workers contacted pregnant mothers and encouraged them to visit infant weighing sessions provided by a BHP team every three months after their child’s birth.  Beginning in 1981, BHP offered vaccinations at the weighing sessions.  Since the DPT vaccine and OPV (oral polio) immunizations were offered only to children who were at least three months of age at the weighing sessions, the children’s random birthdays allowed for analysis of deaths between 3 and 5 months of age depending on vaccination status.  So, for example, a child born on January 1st and weighed on April 1st would be vaccinated, but a child born on February 1st would not be vaccinated until their following visit at age 5 months on July 1st.

Vitamin C deficiency discovered in critically ill patients, researchers reveal in a recent NZ study

Remember the man dying in Waikato Hospital, where the authorities wanted to switch off his life support? His family suggested Vit C (IV) – no go. Would’t have a bar of that. So they enlisted a lawyer to fight for that right. They dragged their feet all the way on this – and the man is now alive & well back on his farm. But for the lawyer he would be gone…..

(Naturalhealth365) Sepsis, a systemic, body-wide complication of infection, features a grim mortality rate – particularly if it progresses to septic shock. Accounting for roughly one out of three hospital deaths, septic shock is fatal 30 to 50 percent of the time (conservatively speaking) – and claims roughly 250,000 lives a year in the United States. But, one way – gaining popularity – to avoid becoming a ‘death statistic’ is to rely on vitamin C, as soon as possible.

Natural health experts have long insisted that illnesses, such as sepsis, drastically deplete the body’s stores of vitamin C, an indispensable nutrient which can only be obtained through diet or supplementation. Now, a recent study from New Zealand reveals the devastating extent to which critical illnesses rob the body of vitamin C – even when patients are being given the amounts recommended by the conventionally-trained health experts.

NZ NOW RANKS AT BOTTOM OF DEVELOPED WORLD – thanks Nats, you do us proud

The latest Unicef report has us languishing at the bottom of the developed world in relation to the health and welfare our children and youth. This report was based on the data our government collects and concerningly, with regards to child poverty, a ranking wasn’t provided because of a refusal to follow standard practice (an admission of failure?). In many documented areas we are seriously neglecting our young people (ranking numbers are determined by the data provided from a maximum of 41 developed countries):

  • Child Poverty (41/41?) I consider that we must be by far the worst in the developed world for child poverty when the Government refuses to use the same measures as other countries so that we can be ranked. Our Children’s Commissioner and the Child Poverty Monitor currently state that 14% of our children suffer from material hardship. We have a much higher threshold to determine this and require 7 elements to recognise hardship, while most other countries use only two. The US is ranked 33 out of 37 for child poverty and they have 21% of their children in households living below the poverty threshold. 28% of our children live below the poverty line and 16% live in jobless households, so I would surmise that we could be the worst. We also have the most expensive housing in the world and a homelessness problem that has exploded in recent years. Between 2006 and 2013 homelessness grew by 25% and involved 1% of the population and 53% of our homeless were families with children. Now that shortages have become increasingly pronounced over the four years since then, I would suggest around 2% of the population is now homeless and many more are living in substandard housing. Third world diseases like rheumatic fever are now common place here, and are directly related to housing poverty. New Zealand is clearly too afraid to provide relevant statistics to enable us to be ranked.
  • Teen Suicide (34/34) We are the worst by a great margin. The median number of teen suicides per 1,000 for developed nations is around 7.5, while 15.5 of our 15-19 year olds take their own lives. This is a shocking indictment on the ability of families to support their teens and our severely under-resourced mental health system. I can imagine few developed countries that would lock struggling youth in adult prisons because of a shortage of youth facilities. Those specialised youth facilities that do exist are run like prisons for hardened criminals. Youth prisoners can be locked in their cells for 19 hours a day, which is classified as torture, is emotionally damaging and unlikely to support rehabilitation.
