Another Fabrication : O'Reilly Never Witnessed The Murder Of Nuns In El Salvador

O'Reilly's Claim To Have Seen Nuns "Shot In The Back Of The Head" Contradicted By His Own Timeline

By Olivia Marshall

In a statement to Mediaite, Bill O'Reilly says that when he said on Fox News "I saw nuns get shot in the back of the head," he was referring to seeing "horrendous images" of nuns murdered while reporting from El Salvador, not witnessing those murders firsthand. His statement, however, does not address his radio show claim, "I've seen guys gun down nuns in El Salvador."

Bill O'Reilly has claimed repeatedly that he witnessed the execution of nuns while reporting in 1981 on the civil war in El Salvador, an apparent fabrication that is at odds with both history and what O'Reilly himself has said about arriving in the country after the event took place, according to new information unearthed by Media Matters.

The Fox host has faced withering scrutiny from historians, former colleagues, and others for havingexaggerated his claims of being in a "combat situation" during the Falklands War.

O'Reilly's El Salvador Fabrication Revealed

Between 1980 and 1992, a civil war raged in El Salvador between the Farabundo Martí National Liberation Front (FMLN) and the government of El Salvador. On December 2, 1980, four members of the Salvadoran national guard raped and shot "three American nuns and a layworker." The tragedy ''did more to inflame the debate over El Salvador in the United States than any other single incident,'' according to a 1993 State Department report. After the death of Silvia Arriola, a member of a religious order killed six weeks after those four churchwomen, "no priests or nuns were killed in El Salvador for more than eight years," according to Dr. Anna Lisa Peterson, a professor of religion at the University of Florida.

O'Reilly has spoken on several occasions about his time covering the Salvadoran civil war as a CBS correspondent in 1981, suggesting at least twice that he witnessed the murder of the churchwomen. On the September 27, 2005, edition of his talk-radio program The Radio Factor, O'Reilly said, "I've seen guys gun down nuns in El Salvador." And on the December 14, 2012, edition of his Fox News show, O'Reilly spoke of telling his mother that "I was in El Salvador and I saw nuns get shot in the back of the head."

MSM had better make damned sure they cut the head off this snake and bury it just like a Western Diamondback, or it will come back to bite them in the ass

However, O'Reilly could not possibly have witnessed the murder of the churchwomen if his own timeline is to be believed. The former CBS correspondent only arrived in El Salvador in 1981, as he mentioned on the February 22, 2002, edition of The O'Reilly Factor, saying (according to Nexis transcript), "Before I went to El Salvador in 1981, I talked with some experienced Latin American experts, people who had seen the brutal wars down there for themselves. I had never been in a war zone before, so I wanted some prep."

In his book The No Spin Zone, O'Reilly devotes several pages to his tenure covering the conflict in El Salvador, which he says began "a few weeks" after he was promoted to CBS News correspondent in 1981. O'Reilly details a reporting assignment in which he arrived at the village of Meanguera shortly after it had been "wiped out" by the rebels and witnessed "carnage" that was "obviously recent." But he makes no mention of seeing nuns, or anyone else, being killed while he reported from El Salvador. Nor does O'Reilly mention the killings in his discussions of his reporting from that country in his memoir, A Bold, Fresh Piece of Humanity.

O'Reilly even admitted he had arrived in El Salvador "right after" the killings during an interview on WVVH-TV's American Dreams Show on September 26, 2009, apparently contradicting his other assertions that he'd witnessed them (emphasis added):

O'REILLY: Now, a Jesuit priest told me about that in El Salvador. It was interesting, I was talking to the guy because these nuns had been slaughtered in El Salvador, and I was down there right after that -- they shot like a dozen, killed a dozen nuns.

Tetrandrine : Compound From Japanese, Chinese Herbs Shows Promise for Blocking Ebola Virus

New anti-viral?


In a new study published in the journal Science, tetrandrine – an alkaloid found in Stephania tetrandra (commonly known as stephania root or ‘han fang ji’) and other Japanese and Chinese herbs – inhibited infection of human white blood cells in petri dish experiments and also showed therapeutic efficacy in lab mice.

Ebola is a rare and deadly disease caused by infection with a virus of the family Filoviridae, genus Ebolavirus.

There are five identified Ebolavirus species, four of which are known to cause disease in humans: Ebola virus, Sudan virus, Taï Forest virus, and Bundibugyo virus. 

The fifth, Reston virus, has caused disease in nonhuman primates, but not in humans.

Ebola was first discovered in 1976 near the Ebola River in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and currently has no approved therapy or vaccine.

The new study, led by Dr Robert Davey of the Texas Biomedical Research Institute, focused on stopping the Ebola virus before it has a chance to enter or interact with cellular factors, as that is a critical first step to combating infection.

The virus begins its entry into a cell by first binding to several types of cell surface proteins. Then the virus is taken into the cell and follows an endosomal route, or membrane-bound route that transports the virus to various cell compartments.

From previous studies, Dr Davey and his colleagues from Germany and the United States knew that calcium signaling in cells, which allow cells to transmit electrical charges to one another, controls many of the processes in the cell and was important for Ebola virus infection.

“We were not able, however, to pinpoint the mechanisms involved in this process,” Dr Davey said.

“With this research, we discovered that two pore channels (TPCs) are the key calcium sensor involved in Ebola virus infection. These TPCs essentially need to be turned on in order for the virus to function properly.”

Two pore channels are unusual calcium channels found in endosomes that control the way endosomes move through cells and the environment of the cells.

The scientists compared TPCs to traffic cops and air conditioners, helping direct the endosomes and any virus it might be carrying through the cell and making the endosomes and its passengers more comfortable along the way.

They were able to show the critical role of two pore channels in Ebola virus infection, which has not previously been shown in any other virus.

In addition to identifying this critical mechanism to infection, the researchers also showed that drugs targeting this interaction show some efficacy as potential treatments against Ebola virus disease.

They determined that existing drugs currently used to treat high blood pressure have an ability to turn this key calcium sensor on and off. They tested several small molecules to see which was most effective at turning the sensors off thus prohibiting Ebola virus from moving any further through the cell.

The scientists found a compound called tetrandrine protected mice from disease without obvious side effects and was the best candidate for further animal testing, because it was the most potent compound tested, gave little evidence of cytotoxicity and required a smaller dose to be effective and tolerated.

“When we tested in mice, the drugs stopped virus replication and saved most of them from disease,” Dr Davey said.

Essentially, tetrandrine shows an ability to stop the virus before it has a chance interact with cellular factors, thus stopping the virus from continuing its infection process.

“We are very excited about the progress made in this study and the momentum it provides as scientists across the world vigorously search for effective vaccines and treatments against Ebola virus,” Dr Davey said.

“We are cautiously optimistic. The next step in the process is to test both safety and effectiveness of the interaction of the drug with Ebola virus in non-human primates.”

MSM continues to beat dead horse Holder as if resurrection were still possible  

By Andrew Kreig

The big media fail to report rampant abuses at the U.S. Justice Department. Too often timid and craven, journalists protect a Puppet President, his team, and the masters they serve. Next month, President Obama and celebrities from the hit film "Selma" will attend the 50th anniversary of the 'Bloody Sunday' civil rights march in Selma, Alabama -- a state notorious also for current state and federal abuses. 

How should the public react?

Attorney Gen. Eric Holder polished his legacy Feb. 17 with a National Press Club speech that illustrated the sharp limits of political accountability and media curiosity in the nation’s capital.

Holder will most likely regret not going quietly
into the night
Holder received for the most part the standard deferential treatment accorded to high officials. Moderators screened audience questions, as commonly the case, thereby keeping discussion focused within comfortable parameters. 

Holder projected a benign presence after presiding over some of America’s most controversial decision-making of the Obama administration.

He announced that his “sentencing reform” initiative has deterred federal prosecutors from advocating mandatory minimum sentences “while reserving stricter sentences for more serious offenders.”

The Justice Department billed it as one of his final public appearances before he steps down as the nation’s 82nd attorney general when his successor wins Senate confirmation, as seems likely.

Holder's replacement Loretta Lynch has been confirmed
by the Senate
Sunday’s award of an Oscar to the film “Selma” helps underscore the positive, as does President Obama’s planned speech in Selma March 7 celebrating the iconic civil rights march in 1965. In contrast to the professional camaraderie at the press club, New York Times investigative reporter and author James Risen, who was not present for Holder's speech, reacted from afar in revulsion by tweeting that Holder's legacy is a "wrecked First Amendment."

Risen described the Obama administration as the "worst" enemy of press freedom in American history. “Eric Holder has sent a message to dictators around the world that it is okay to crack down on the press and jail journalists,” Risen tweeted. A sample of other controversial issues and ironies is listed below in an appendix. 

Today’s column examines how the club's speaker process, like similar programs featuring government officials in Washington, side-steps blunt exchanges about sensitive issues that might better inform the public at the risk of antagonizing a speaker and reducing future appearances by similar guests.

The stakes are high. Holder, one of President Obama’s closest friends and advisors, presides over a Justice Department with vast clout over the nation’s criminal and civil law enforcement system. Its oft-discretionary and subjective application of law impacts also the economy and even foreign affairs. Thus, Holder influences jobs, savings, and national security and many individuals caught up in those vital matters.

Overview: Cozy Relationships and Cover-Up

Holder is one of just three cabinet members remaining in office from the beginning of the Obama administration in 2009. That reflects his position as a key advisor to the president. 

Holder in Situation Room meeting with intelligence officials
As often in recent Justice Integrity Project columns, our theme is that the public needs to demand reliable information or else suffer exploitation from all sides in a confusing situation whereby financial oligarchs control both major parties and the media as well. Years of stenography and propaganda in the guise of news increasingly hide this process and undermine the nation's constitutional rights and economic way of life. 

Cozy relationships between officials and the media play a largely hidden role regarding what the public learns. Obama's strategist and deputy national security advisor Ben Rhodes is the brother of CBS News President David Rhodes, for example. The cross-pollination links could not be clearer based on that alone.

Sharyl Attkisson
Further, former CBS reporter Sharyl Attkisson has filed a lawsuit against the Justice Department alleging illegal surveillance. Last year, she published Stonewalled, which accused CBS of protecting the Obama administration by not adequately covering such stories as the 2012 Benghazi attack and slow initial enrollments under Obamacare.

More about news manipulation at networks is contained in The one misstatement a scribe can’t make! This was a blog post last week at Bob Somerby's Daily Howler media criticism site. Somerby alleges in regard to the Brian Williams scandal at NBC that when defense contractor General Electric owned the network it long encouraged its anchors to slant the news to achieve the political goals of the ownership, including long-running smears of Democratic presidential candidates Al Gore in 1999-2000 and Hillary Clinton in 2007-2008. 

Minimal research can show that the intelligence community wields great power over the administration on substantive matters, frequently on behalf of its allies in the financial, defense, energy and related private sectors.

Obama has consistently covered up Bush war crimes since 
taking office
For such reasons, Obama and his attorney general merely went through the motions in 2009 when they authorized Connecticut-based federal prosecutor John Durham to investigate potential CIA law-breaking for destroying evidence of Bush-era torture. Durham's probe resulted in the same kind of whitewash that his colleague Nora Dannehy achieved in her superficial, Holder-authorized internal review of the well-documented Justice Department abuses reflected in the 2007 U.S. attorney firing scandal. Dannehy did not interview witnesses even when some wanted to talk under oath to right the injustice regarding such human rights scandals as the political prosecution of former Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman. In a second trial, Siegelman was convicted of corruption charges only via flagrant abuses by prosecutors and federal judge Mark Fuller, as we have often reported here. 

As president-elect, Obama famously intoned that he would "look forward and not backward" on such matters. But as a law school instructor earlier in his career, Obama fully realized that virtually all criminal and civil litigation inevitably looks "backward" at previous events to determine accountability. Whitewashing crimes by officials while ruthlessly prosecuting whistleblowers and other small fry is the worst possible result for the public.

Petraeus with Broadwell
The New York Times last month reported based on leaks that career staff has recommended felony charges against former CIA Director David Petraeus for leaking classified documents to his lover and All In biographer, Paula Broadwell. 

But Holder downplayed the Times story about the still-influential Dr. Petraeus, who left office in disgrace just after the 2012 election because of his affair with Broadwell while his wife Holly continued to work for the Obama administration fulfilling her passion of helping veterans. Good relations with the Petraeus family also help Democrats keep well-positioned politically with the nation's powerful neo-con and neo-lib forces dominating modern foreign affairs, and perhaps to some extent with the veterans groups that the former general has helped lead in recent years.

Vaccines As "Cluster Bombs"

MSM now publishing fake pro-vaccination polls    

By Rowan Contraho

Shiv Chopra, the Canadian microbiologist known for having helped stop the approval of rBGH, did so not by making true but complex arguments about its association to cancers, but by reducing the issue to an undeniable biological fact and thus simple legal issue.

The law said that no factory containing so much as a single rat dropping or feather is considered clean. rBGH gives cows mastitis which leads to pus in their milk. rBGH thus turns cows into pus factories.

Wikipedia (articles there on vaccines appear to have been written by industry), says that “Vaccines are among the greatest achievements of modern medicine.” Dr. Chopra calls them “cluster bombs.”

“A vaccine is a biological preparation that improves immunity to a particular disease.” Dr. Chopra says vaccines do nothing of the sort and, in fact, violate the very laws of biology.

As with rBGH, he has a talent for reducing things to understandable and undeniable facts and when it comes to vaccines, he begins at the beginning by describing how the immune system works to protect people from disease.

He says there is a constant war going on between an individual’s bodily integrity and invading organisms.

Most people would most easily recognize this war when they think of bodies rejecting organs from another person or animal. That very same rejection occurs at a microlevel – against foreign viruses and bacteria. But rejecting what is foreign, no matter the size, is not just a nice thing or just “how the immune system protects the body” but it does so for a cardinal purpose – to maintain bodily integrity.

And the definition of “integrity” is crucial to understanding the brilliance of the immune system. “Integrity: the quality or state of being complete; unbroken condition; wholeness; entirety; the quality or state of being unimpaired; perfect condition …”

In the simplest terms, Dr. Chopra explains that the immune system maintains wholeness or “self” versus “non-self” in the face of invaders.

And it is precisely that wholeness or integrity which vaccines destroy.

The immune system works by breaking down whatever foreign matter enters your body – be it protein, fat, starch or sugar – into single molecules in the digestive system. Starches and sugar must be broken into glucose, fat to fatty acids, and proteins into amino acids. The last two the body then takes and rebuilds into the person’s own, no longer foreign, protein and fat. Anything that remains foreign is and must be rejected.

Bodily integrity must be maintained so the immune system repels invaders by breaking them to pieces or ejecting or destroying them.

In this context, sneezing, coughing, diarrhea, vomiting can be appreciated as protective immune mechanisms to get rid of foreign protein or other matter, while foreign material that gets past into the body is deconstructed by the gut and fever is stimulated as a means weaken or destroy it.

With this background, one understands that in four steps, Dr. Chopra is laying bare the core scientific fallacy of vaccines.

Chopra says that anyone knowing the basics of biology should know:

1. That all vaccines by their very nature are antigens and that every antigen by defintion must be a foreign protein …;

2. That no foreign protein can be absorbed into the blood stream unless it is digested in the alimentary canal into its basic amino acids;

3. That it is these amino acids which after being absorbed into the blood stream are reconstituted into one’s own proteins and it is these proteins which distinguishes every being of existence into self and non-self.

4. That any interference or tampering with these laws of existence can bring calamity to the being in which it occurs such as by causing auto-immune conditions like autism, etc.

Why calamity?

What happens is that vaccines force foreign protein into the body, bypassing all mechanisms used by the immune system to avoid such invasion.

Think of organ transplants. The immune system must rid itself of what is foreign. It will not stop until it has. It will attack itself to do so if necessary – so fundamental is integrity of self versus invader.

Imagine this were happening to your own home. People have doors and windows and alarm systems exactly to stop invaders. Normally we think of them coming to steal but imagine they came to stay, to take over. The need to eject them and keep the home your own would be unceasing. Imagine they came in not through the doors or windows for which you had defenses, but through the chimney, through the ventilation system, though the electrical system, and there was no way to be rid of them. Would it be your home anymore? Would you be safe? Would you ever be able to function normally again or would you be on a permanent state of high alert and stress trying again and again to get rid of them? Might you throw things and damage the walls, or shoot and break things, tearing up your own home? Would you become exhausted? Might you break down physically from trying, but could you ever stop trying? If you did, would it not mean it was no longer your home, but indistinguishable from theirs or maybe even more theirs, having defeated you?

So what happens to the immune system when vaccines jump past its neutralization of foreign proteins before they can enter the bloodstream, and instead foreign matter is injected into the body? Just like you, the immune system must attack whatever is shot into it, and in being unable to rid itself of that matter or break it down, it attacks again and again, attacking the body itself. Thus, autoimmune reactions, which are self-attacks. The more vaccines, the more foreign protein is being shot into the body, the more the reactions, the more the body attacks itself.

Vaccines do not, as claimed, “improve immunity.” Even the most rudimentary understanding of what the immune system does would make that obvious. Vaccines jump the immune system to deliver foreign matter that could never have gotten past it otherwise. This is foreign matter that the immune system is left helplessly unable to rid itself of. Foreign matter is lodged permanently in the body, leaving it no longer perfect but broken, impaired. Bodily integrity is literally destroyed.

From Should I Vaccinate My Child? by Patel Thompson:

“[R]esearchers argue that these attenuated forms of the viruses remain in the body causing continual antigenic stimulation of the immune system – meaning the immune system is always in ‘attack’ mode – which also weakens it and leads to auto-immune diseases.

“A placebo-controlled trial of acellular pertussis vaccines in Sweden compared vaccinated children with un-vaccinated children of the same birth grouping. During the trial, an invasive bacterial infection occurred among the vaccinated group resulting in numerous deaths. A review of the trial data led researchers to conclude that ‘The hypothesis of an immunosuppressive effect of the vaccines, which would explain the deaths…could not be refuted by the data.’ (xvi)

“As further evidence, one of the few double-blind trials that have ever been conducted on a vaccine shows the same immunosuppressive effect. In the trial, of the group who were vaccinated with the Salk polio vaccine, over 200 people went on to contract polio. Among the control group (unvaccinated), not one of them developed polio. (xvii)

“Citing references from numerous valid sources, including four recognized textbooks on paediatrics and immunology, Harold Buttram, MD and John Hoffman, PhD, conclude that childhood vaccination “cannot help but have adverse effects on the immunologic system of the child, possibly leaving this system crippled in its ability to protect the child throughout life…opening the way for other diseases as a result of immunologic dysfunction.” (xviii)

And it is not only foreign virus or bacteria that causes a problem.

Chopra writes:

“The foreign proteins in vaccines originate from not only the infectious organisms against which one wishes to produce infection-fighting antibodies but also the artificial media in which these organisms are grown. Contained in such media may include one or more of the following materials: bovine serum, horse serum, chicken egg, monkey kidney, insect cells and even human fetal cells.

“Apart from the foreign proteins, vaccines may also contain other harmful substances, including mercury, aluminum, formalin, oily adjuvants, etc., plus untold number of stray viruses with the potential to cause cancer, HIV, serum-hepatitis, and so on.”

The body is being filled with foreign protein from other human beings and from other species, none of which the immune system can expel, and yet it must if it is to maintain functional integrity – keeping the distinction between “self” and non-self.

“Meanwhile, evidence indicates that except for smallpox, no other infectious disease, e.g.: tuberculosis, cholera, typhoid, anthrax, measles, mumps, rubella, DPT, polio, influenza and others, has been eradicated and that this continues to be so despite the decades of vaccinations against each of these diseases.

“Also, during the same period, the incidence of many previously uncommon diseases such as autism, diabetes, allergies, and cancer, has been increasing in pandemic proportions.”

The person is now contaminated with foreign matter, the “invader” now residing the body, the body attacking itself.

Patel Thompson, again:

“Vaccinal attenuated viruses attach their own genetic ‘episome’ to the genome (half set of chromosomes and their genes) of the host cell, and are thus capable of surviving or remaining latent within the host cells for years. The presence of foreign antigenic material within the host cell sets the stage for their unpredictable provocation of various auto-immune phenomena such as herpes, shingles, warts, tumors – both benign and malignant – and diseases of the central nervous system, such as varied forms of paralysis and inflammation of the brain.” (xix)

“Dr. Markowitz states that in addition, vaccines do not just produce mild versions of the original disease, but all of them commonly produce a variety of their own symptoms. In some cases, ‘these illnesses may be considerably more serious than the original disease, involving deeper structures, more vital organs, and less of a tendency to resolve spontaneously. Even more worrisome is the fact that they are almost always more difficult to recognize.’” (xx)

“In addressing scientists at a conference sponsored by the American Cancer Society, Rutgers University professor R. Simpson warned:

“‘Immunization Programs against flu, measles, mumps, polio and so forth may actually be seeding humans with RNA to form latent proviruses in cells throughout the body. These latent proviruses could be molecules in search of diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, systemic lupus erythematosus, Parkinson’s disease and perhaps cancer.’” (xxi)

In claiming vaccines “improve immunity,” the pharmaceutical industry seems to have no idea that the purpose of the immune system is not just to react but to protect biologic integrity, core to human health and life. Instead, the industry is filling the body with foreign protein, devastating the human immune system. They are using vaccines containing foreign DNA and a long list of toxic substances that “explode inside the body and hit every part of the body, every cell and molecule” – the “cluster bomb” Chopra speaks of.

“Apart from the foreign proteins, vaccines may also contain other harmful substances, including mercury, aluminum, formalin, oily adjuvants, etc., plus untold number of stray viruses with the potential to cause cancer, HIV, serum-hepatitis, and so on.”

So distant is the pharmaceutical industry from protecting immune function that with each “generation” of vaccines, the vaccines become more harmful. They went from inserting whole viruses which they now admit were causing the very diseases they were supposed to prevent, to using “recombinant components” (genetically engineered pieces) of a number of viruses, but still they could not get the response they wanted. So, now they have moved to the third generation of vaccines, DNA vaccines, that inject genetically engineered matter. Are they called DNA vaccines because they are supposed to be taken up by the person’s DNA?

If so, they would be hitting not just organs and cells but would potentially be contaminating the very biologic code of the person’s life, their DNA.

If this occurs, now the home invader analogy would include mutant (genetically engineered) invaders who would take over the host’s body, as well as her house.

If the new vaccines can imbed or cross contaminate with mutant (genetically engineered) pathogens that affect the DNA, vaccination would be undermining the integrity of self in terms of its instructional messages, the biologic coding of the runs everything in the human body. The immune system would be left struggling at a much deeper level of reaction, a spasm of reaction. The most core functions of the body, such as mitochondrial function (basic energy production) might be disrupted.

Was Wakefield seeing damage to fundamental bodily integrity, in seeing mitochondrial dysfunction? Was Robin MacNeil of PBS seeing it as well in his own sick autistic grandson?

Chopra’s explanation of the immune system and how vaccination bypasses the immune system and leaves in place just what the immune system is tasked to get rid of (foreign protein), makes apparent why it is mistaken to refer to vaccination as “immunization.” Vaccines damage the immune system. Vaccination would more appropriately be called “anti-immunization.”

Patel Thompson says:

“The bulk of the evidence gathered from numerous countries points out that not only is vaccination ineffective at preventing the spread of infectious disease, but vaccinated children are actually at a higher risk of contracting these illnesses. In addition, the adverse reactions to vaccination are much higher than presently documented in the medico-pharmaceutical literature and the long-term damaging effect of suppressing the immune system is rarely addressed.

“In light of all the evidence to the contrary, why have vaccines been pressed upon the public as a necessary, beneficial way of preventing our children from getting sick? In the words of Dr. Raymond Obomsawin (who’s held senior positions in UNICEF and CUSO), referring to mass vaccination, “It is reprehensible that such actions continue to be enforced by authorities, while parents and local health workers are not accorded any practical knowledge of the known dangers involved, and the extent to which there prevails a general ignorance of the longer term consequences.” (xxii)

Patel Thompson is not alone in seeing that something other than science is behind vaccines.

“Combine this ignorance with the millions of dollars in profit generated by vaccination that goes straight into the pockets of manufacturing companies, governments and medical doctors, and it becomes clear that vaccination is more of a political and economic issue, than a health issue.”

One sees that reality in the behavior of those invested in vaccines, such as Bill Gates. Rather than addressing the solid and increasing scientific evidence exposing the biologic irrationality of his massive financial commitment in vaccines (as well as the extreme danger a leading scientist is warning of), he is instead suggesting now that those who question his investment (vaccines) are committing involuntary manslaughter. Did the pharmaceutical industry insert the article on vaccines in Wikipedia? It too suggests that expression of concerns over vaccines are tantamount to manslaughter.

“[C]oncern has been raised [by anyone not financially connected to vaccine production?] that spreading unfounded information about the medical risks of vaccines increases rates of life-threatening infections, not only in the children whose parents refused vaccinations, but also in other children, perhaps too young for vaccines, who could contract infections from unvaccinated carriers (see herd immunity). A more extreme response to this concern is the claim that spreading false information about vaccine risks amounts to involuntary manslaughter, claiming that celebrity promotion of the vaccine-autism link was followed by “an increase in the number of vaccine preventable illnesses as well as an increase in the number of vaccine preventable deaths” and thus “may be indirectly responsible for at least some of these illnesses and deaths.” (Wikipedia, Vaccines) [Emphasis added.]

As the above quote indicates, the promotion of vaccines is relying on fear. Vaccine investors are using it (fear of swine flu, of meningitis, of hepatitis, of cervical cancer, of common childhood diseases – adding new fears all the time) to try to put in place the ultimate form of marketing – government mandates of their products. But educated people are learning that vaccines suppress and even damage the immune system, which is essential for fighting off diseases, and that vaccines were not responsible for the decrease in infectious diseases but can actually increase diseases.

So, to stop such information and the spreading rejection of vaccines, those invested in vaccines (with 200 more in the works) are portraying information (concerns, questions, etc.) about vaccines as lethal.

Yet the pharmaceutical industry and Bill Gates cannot dispute the central biologic fact about vaccines – they are catastrophic to the immune system and it is the immune system that keeps people well or heals them of disease. The “science” behind the new vaccines is so shaky, the pharmaceutical industry admits it doesn’t know how their DNA vaccines, which are based on “DNA uptake,” are alleged to work:

“This phenomenon has not been the subject of much research, so the actual mechanism of DNA uptake is not known.” (Wikipedia)

Ignorance of the immune system combined with intense international promotion of an early pharma product (aspirin) is now associated with deaths during 1918, not a flu or virus. The National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases discovered that common upper respiratory bacteria were responsible for the deaths, nothing viral. Aspirin is thought to have played a part as doctors did not realize it suppresses the immune system (or the value of fever), and that suppression allowed infections to take hold and worsen.

Additionally, aspirin killed healthy people outright (“well in the morning, dead by evening”) because of medical ignorance of its toxic qualities. Government, medical, and industry promotion came together to urge aspirin on the world, and multiplied the losses. (And now coming to light is the corollary – natural practitioners who avoided aspirin and supported immune system function, had stunning success in saving lives.)

Vaccines are promoted as a miracle of modern medicine, just as aspirin was touted in 1918. The WHO even promotes vaccines as the means to save the world from another flu pandemic like 1918. But 1918 wasn’t a flu pandemic in the first place! To counter how many times people were wrongly told that a virulent virus (or flu) killed millions in 1918, it bears repeating that there was no flu pandemic in 1918 and that there has never been a flu pandemic in human history that killed millions.

Instead, 1918 appears most likely to have been a pharmaceutical disaster of global proportions based on global distribution of aspirin and global advertising.

Vaccines make no sense as any response to 1918 unless the drug industry wishes to replicate the calamity of 1918 by intensely promoting yet another pharmaceutical industry product which even more severely suppresses the immune system than aspirin and can permanently damage it. Today the pharmaceutical industry has gone further than promotion, and has gotten laws in place which mandatetheir “immune system damaging” product to everyone, without exception.

The millions of 1918 deaths offer a dire warning against any product – no matter how much said to prevent death, no matter how much fear-mongering, no matter how much government agencies, medical authorities, or industry spokespeople urge – that tampers with the immune system.
