Was Katrina und Rita uns gelehrt haben

Zwei Orkane der Kategorie 5 bilden sich innerhalb von weniger als 4 Wochen in der Karibik. Dabei haben im letzten Jahrhundert lediglich drei solche Kat5-Stuerme die Küste der USA erreicht. Sie denken, lieber Leser, vielleicht: "Nun werden die Amis endlich umdenken und die Erderwärmung als Tatsache akzeptieren." Sie wünschen sich bei den Amerikanern nun Einsichten, weniger Energiekonsum, einen Beitritt zum Kyoto-Protokoll? Und mehr sozialen Zusammenhalt, vor allem zwischen Klassen und Rassen? Da können Sie schwarz werden …

1918 Flu Epidemic CAUSED BY VACCINES

The Avian Flu and Drugless Doctors

IAHF Webmaster: Breaking News, Whats New, What to Do, Genocide, Codex Emergency

IAHF List: This article says it all. The government is trying to scare the crap out of people to get them to get vaccinated, the vaccines themselves could cause a pandemic JUST LIKE IN 1918. The Fedstapo WANTS this to happen so they can sick FEMA on us under martial law, so each one TEACH ONE, lets mass forward this baby, eh?

This eye witness account of the 1918 Avian Flu outbreak is a real eye opener. We are up against a government engineered plan to kill us off, plain and simple.

Get armed with information. Beef up your own immune system and be ready to help those around you like the woman who wrote this article did back in 1918 when she acted like a nurse for her dying neighbors who ignorantly took the vaccine. Together, we can all survive.... THE GOVERNMENT.


Subject: THE AVIAN FLU AND DRUGLESS DOCTORS
February 07, 2004

The Avian Flu and Drugless Doctors

BBC carried an article on 5 February titled "1918 killer flu secrets revealed" which tells us that the scientists claim to now have figured out that 50 million people were killed by a virus that "jumped from birds to humans".

Obviously this is to prepare us for a "killer epidemic", something that is supposed to hit any time now, be it this winter or the next or the one after that.

Jon Rappoport found the most interesting analysis of the 1918 flu disaster, in a book by Eleanor McBean. And if you haven't heard of drugless doctors yet, here's the place where you'll meet them.

THE FLU: 1918 AND NOW

FEBRUARY 7, 2004. You may have noticed that researchers are now saying they have analyzed the virus that caused the 1918 global pandemic of flu. They are linking it to a bird virus, which stirs the pot on the current flap about avian flu in Asia.

The PR goes this way: If this current bird virus mutates just a little bit in the wrong direction, we could see a replay of the 1918 disaster.

Here is another analysis, written about 25 years ago by Eleanor McBean. This excerpt, from chapter two of her book, Vaccination Condemned, makes a quite different observation:

I WAS AN ON-THE-SPOT OBSERVER OF THE 1918 INFLUENZA EPIDEMIC

All the doctors and people who were living at the time of the 1918 Spanish Influenza epidemic say it was the most terrible disease the world has ever had. Strong men, hale and hearty, one day would be dead the next. The disease had the characteristics of the black death added to typhoid, diphtheria, pneumonia, smallpox, paralysis and all the diseases the people had been vaccinated with immediately following World War 1. Practically the entire population had been injected "seeded" with a dozen or more diseases — or toxic serumss. When all those doctor-made diseases started breaking out all at once it was tragic.

That pandemic dragged on for two years, kept alive with the addition of more poison drugs administered by the doctors who tried to suppress the symptoms. As far as I could find out, the flu hit only the vaccinated. Those who had refused the shots escaped the flu. My family had refused all the vaccinations so we remained well all the time. We knew from the health teachings of Graham, Trail, Tilden and others, that people cannot contaminate the body with poisons without causing disease.

When the flu was at its peak, all the stores were closed as well as the schools, businesses — even the hospital, ass the doctors and nurses had been vaccinated too and were down with the flu. No one was on the streets. It was like a ghost town. We [who didn't taken any vaccines] seemed to be the only family which didn't get the flu; so my parents went from house to house doing what they could to look after the sick, as it was impossible to get a doctor then. If it were possible for germs, bacteria, virus, or bacilli to cause disease, they had plenty of opportunity to attack my parents when they were spending many hours a day in the sick rooms. But they didn't get the flu and they didn't bring any germs home to attack us children and cause anything. None of our family had the flu — not even a sniffle— and it wa was in the winter with deep snow on the ground.

It has been said that the 1918 flu epidemic killed 20,000,000 people throughout the world. But, actually, the doctors killed them with their crude and deadly treatments and drugs. This is a harsh accusation but it is nevertheless true, judging by the success of the drugless doctors in comparison with that of the medical doctors.

While the medical men and medical hospitals were losing 33% of their flu cases, the non-medical hospitals such as BATTLE CREEK, KELLOGG and MACFADDEN'S HEALTH-RESTORIUM were getting almost 100% healings with their water cure, baths, enemas, etc., fasting and certain other simple healing methods, followed by carefully worked out diets of natural foods. One health doctor didn't lose a patient in eight years. The very successful health treatment of one of those drugless doctors who didn't lose any patients will be given in the other part of this book, titled VACCINATION CONDEMNED, to be published a little later.

If the medical doctors had been as advanced as the drugless doctors, there would not have been those 20 million deaths from the medical flu treatment.

There was seven times more disease among the vaccinated soldiers than among the unvaccinated civilians, and the diseases were those they had been vaccinated against. One soldier who had returned from overseas in 1912 told me that the army hospitals were filled with cases of infantile paralysis and he wondered why grown men should have an infant disease. Now, we know that paralysis is a common after-effect of vaccine poisoning. Those at home didn't get the paralysis until after the world-wide vaccination campaign in 1918.

Drive Bush Out Of Office

MWM: This may play out very well against the backdrop of multiple indictments filed during October against many members of the Bushita Regime. The Great Ramadan Offensive could add great impetus to end the Tragedy in the Middle East, or, it could kill the movement to push Bush out of office and repolarize support for the Imperial Faction. Timing and synchronicity is a most curious thing, and sometimes the whole world is nothing more than a fragile reed twisting and bending unpredictably in the gusty wind of wind. I think however, that the odds are very strong that all vectors are converging to end Bush's tenure. In the end, I believe he will fulfill the 20 year "curse" which sits death or hardship on Presidents who are elected at the beginning of a decade every 20 years, as in 1900, 1920, 1940, 1960, 1980, and now...


National Day of Resistance called by The World Can't Wait

by OfficialWire NewsDesk

NEW YORK, NY -- (OfficialWire) -- 10/05/05 -- [] World Can't Wait­a growing national organization with a plan to bring millions of people out of their anguished paralysis and into a conscious resistance movement­vows not stop until the Bush regime is driven out of office. On November 2, 2005, it begins. No Work, No School­people will gather in their city and town squares across the country and move out from there?

World Can't Wait spokesperson, Sunsara Taylor said: "Years from now, when children want to know the character of their parents­as they lived in a country that was normalizing torture, moving to condemn half the population to enforced motherhood or back-alley dangers, attacking science and critical thought, enforcing a narrow brand of fundamentalist religion and bigotry, disenfranchising and then abandoning hundreds of thousands of Black people in an illegitimate 'election' and a foreseen natural disaster, waging wars of preemption based on outrageous lies, snatching people off the street without lawyers or charges, and no major office-holder was making a stink­they will ask, 'Were you in the streets that day, on November 2, 2005'?"

Ads for November 2 are playing nationwide on Air America radio. Organizers are making plans for the day in over 30 cities, as well as colleges and high schools nationwide. November 2 will bring out students, workers, artists, professionals, people from all walks of life who understand that there will be no saviors from the Democratic Party, and 'that which you do not resist, you will learn or be forced­to accept.' November 2 is the day America will begin to turn.

In New York City, people will gather at Union Square at 12 noon.

Sunsara Taylor is speaking on radio and TV and campuses nationwide in the weeks running up to November 2. She has appeared on Hannity & Colmes, Fox and Friends, Air America, CNN, NY1, New York Times, and many other media outlets.

The World Can't Wait!
Drive Out the Bush Regime!
Mobilize for November 2, 2005

YOUR GOVERNMENT, on the basis of outrageous lies, is waging a murderous and utterly illegitimate war in Iraq, with other countries in their sights.

YOUR GOVERNMENT is openly torturing people, and justifying it.

YOUR GOVERNMENT puts people in jail on the merest suspicion, refusing them lawyers, and either holding them indefinitely or deporting them in the dead of night.

YOUR GOVERNMENT is moving each day closer to a theocracy, where a narrow and hateful brand of Christian fundamentalism will rule.

YOUR GOVERNMENT suppresses the science that doesn’t fit its religious, political and economic agenda, forcing present and future generations to pay a terrible price.

YOUR GOVERNMENT enforces a culture of greed, bigotry, intolerance and ignorance. People look at all this and think of Hitler — and they are right to do so.

The Bush regime is setting out to radically remake society very quickly, in a fascist way, and for generations to come. We must act now; the future is in the balance. Millions and millions are deeply disturbed and outraged by this. They recognize the need for a vehicle to express this outrage, yet they cannot find it; politics as usual cannot meet the enormity of the challenge, and people sense this.

There is not going to be some magical "pendulum swing." People who steal elections and believe they're on a "mission from God" will not go without a fight.

There is not going to be some savior from the Democratic Party. This whole idea of putting our hopes and energies into "leaders" who tell us to seek common ground with fascists and religious fanatics is proving every day to be a disaster, and actually serves to demobilize people.

But silence and paralysis are NOT acceptable. That which you will not resist and mobilize to stop, you will learn — or be forced — to accept. There is no escaping it: the whole disastrous course of this Bush regime must be STOPPED. And we must take the responsibility to do it.

And there is a way. We are talking about something on a scale that can really make a huge change in this country and in the world. We need more than fighting Bush's outrages one at a time, constantly losing ground to the whole onslaught. We must, and can, aim to create a political situation where the Bush regime's program is repudiated, where Bush himself is driven from office, and where the whole direction he has been taking society is reversed. We, in our millions, must and can take responsibility to change the course of history.

To that end, on November 2, the first anniversary of Bush's "re-election", we will take the first major step in this by organizing a truly massive day of resistance all over this country. People everywhere will walk out of school, they will take off work, they will come to the downtowns and town squares and set out from there, going through the streets and calling on many more to JOIN US. They will repudiate this criminal regime, making a powerful statement: "NO! THIS REGIME DOES NOT REPRESENT US! AND WE WILL DRIVE IT OUT!"

November 2 must be a massive and public proclamation that WE REFUSE TO BE RULED IN THIS WAY. November 2 must call out to the tens of millions more who are now agonizing and disgusted. November 2 will be the beginning — a giant first step in forcing Bush to step down, and a powerful announcement that we will not stop until he does so - and it will join with and give support and heart to people all over the globe who so urgently need and want this regime to be stopped.

This will not be easy. If we speak the truth, they will try to silence us. If we act, they will to try to stop us. But we speak for the majority, here and around the world, and as we get this going we are going to reach out to the people who have been so badly fooled by Bush and we are NOT going to stop.

The point is this: history is full of examples where people who had right on their side fought against tremendous odds and were victorious. And it is also full of examples of people passively hoping to wait it out, only to get swallowed up by a horror beyond what they ever imagined. The future is unwritten. WHICH ONE WE GET IS UP TO US.

These next days are crucial. The call you are reading has to get out to millions right away — on the internet, passed out as flyers in communities, published as ads in newspapers. DO NOT WAIT!! GET ORGANIZED!! If you agree with this statement, add your name to it!!! And do more than that: send it to friends, get them to sign it, organize a meeting, take it to your church, your school, your union, your health club, your barber shop, to concerts and libraries and family gatherings, everywhere you go. Raise money, lots of money. Get people together, make plans to be there on November 2, and to build for it.

The Call to Drive Out the Bush Regime
http://disc.server.com/discussion.cgi?id=149495;article=95037;show_parent=1

--------

On November 2, people in 67 cities, 43 colleges and universities, and 90 high schools (at last count) are walking out of school and work and demonstrating to drive out the Bush regime.

Building up to November 2nd, this is what has happened already:

- Thousands have signed the Call to Drive Out the Bush Regime including Nobel Laureate Harold Pinter, Gore Vidal, Cindy Sheehan, Kurt Vonnegut, Alice Walker, Eve Ensler, Richard Serra, Jane Fonda, Jonathan Kozol, Howard Zinn, Michael Eric Dyson, Russell Banks, Cornel West, Michael Ratner, Ron Kovic, Mumia Abu-Jamal, Ed Asner, Deborah Glick (New York State Assemblywoman), Mark Leno (California Assemblyman), Tom Duane (NY State Senator), Tom Ammiano (San Francisco Board of Supervisors), Chris Daly (San Francisco Board of Supervisors), Kevin Powell, Boots Riley and Tom Morello [Go to website for quotes from the voices speaking out]. They join organizations like Code Pink, the Progressive Democrats of America, Democrats.com, the National Lawyers Guild, Haitian Coalition for Justice, ACT UP/NY, ANSWER/NY, the Campus Anti-War Network, and many others.

- A battle is brewing over high school students walking out in schools through out New York City. Clergy and lawyers are monitoring the situation on behalf of the students. A similar situation in Los Angeles with threats against student organizers and those intending to walk-out has resulted in a very two-sided battle with students defiantly proclaiming, “The administrators are using the same tactics as the Bush administration: fear. They are trying to scare us so we’ll back off and not walk out or go against Bush. What are these threats compared to what Bush is doing? They are nothing… F*ck their threats, we’re changing the world!” Go to http://www.worldcantwait to read their message, RESIST OR DIE!

- In the four months since the WCW call was issued, chapters have been formed in 53 cities, with demonstrations taking place in another 14. The 34 states now covered are an equal mix of blue and red. Along with New York, San Francisco, Chicago, LA, there are demonstrations planned in Norfolk, Virginia; Burlington, Vermont; Chattanooga, Tennessee; Tulsa, Oklahoma; Hood River, Oregon; Boone, North Carolina; Great Falls, Montana; and Springfield, Missouri.

November 2, the first anniversary of Bush's "re-selection," will be the first major proclamation of an unprecedented and urgently needed social movement in this country: a movement aimed - not at this or that policy - but directly at driving out a regime.

The past week underscored just why a whole new level of opposition – this movement to Drive Out the Bush Regime - is needed, now! In the face of setbacks like the Miers withdrawal, Libby's indictment, global condemnation of US torture policy, the ongoing bloodbath in Iraq, and plummeting poll numbers, Bush nominates a far right winger to the Supreme Court.

November 2nd, as the beginning of this movement to drive out the Bush regime, is history in the making.

TELL YOUR MEMBERS OF CONGRESS TO SUPPORT VOTING REFORM

I just sent a personal message using the easy one click form below to my local daily newspaper, I hope you will join me!

http://www.velvetrevolution.us/Content/VotingReform/pen3.php

TELL YOUR MEMBERS OF CONGRESS TO SUPPORT VOTING REFORM

I am deeply concerned about the need for transparent, independently auditable, non-privatized, non-vendor-controlled elections and urge you to support legislation that:

(1) establishes a requirement for a voter verified paper ballot created for every vote cast;
(2) establishes a mandatory uniform national standard that states that the voter verified paper ballot -- the only record verified by the voter rather than the voting machine -- is the vote of record in the case of any inconsistency with electronic records;
(3) provides Federal funding to pay for implementation of voter verified paper balloting;
(4) requires a percentage of mandatory random audits in every state, and in each county, for every Federal election;
(5) prohibits use of undisclosed software, wireless communication devices, and internet connections in voting machines;
(6) is required to be fully implemented by 2006; and
(7) protects the accessibility mandates of the Help America Vote Act.

Ensuring full access to the electoral system does not require turning complete control of the vote count over to privately-owned, privately-controlled voting machine vendors.

A bill introduced by Rep. Rush Holt (D-NJ), The Voter Confidence and Increased Accessibility Act (H.R. 550) meets all of the above requirements and has strong bipartisan support. Please show your commitment to transparent, independently auditable, non-privatized, non-vendor-controlled elections today by co-sponsoring HR 550 and ensuring that it becomes law this year.

How High Could Indictments Go?

Daniel Schorr comments on the tangled web of CIA leaks and wonders how high the indictments could go. The prosecutor interviewed President Bush and Vice President Cheney at some length. It is not publicly known if they are implicated, but Schorr reminds us that the Watergate grand jury wanted to indict President Nixon for obstruction of justice.

Violence Leads Only to More Violence

With names like 'Operation Iron Fist' and 'Operation Iron Gate' thousands of US troops, backed by warplanes, tanks and helicopters began attacking small cities and villages primarily in the northwestern area of al-Anbar. An Iraqi journalist writing under the name Sabah Ali recently returned from the al-Qa'im area of Iraq, accomplishing a feat no non-embedded western journalist has dared undertake. Her report tells quite a different story than US Military and corporate media.

A plan developed by the Bush administration to deal with any possible outbreak of pandemic flu shows that the United States is woefully unprepared for what could become the worst disaster in the nation's history. A draft of the final plan, which has been years in the making, is expected to be released later this month.

Prevent a Bill Passing Regarding Forcing Us to Vaccinate

I encourage everyone to pick up the phone and call the U.S. Senators and let them know that we do not want this anti-American and anti-U.S. Constitution bill to pass and become law. This is an assault against every American and I encourage all of you to pick up the phone and let your voices be heard.

Vaccines are contanimated with toxic things like formaldehyde, which is commonly used to embalm corpses, and is a known carcinogen (capable of causing cancer), thiomersal, a derivative of mercury which is a toxic heavy metal, aluminium phosphate which is a toxin used in deodorants. Other toxic ingredients include phenol (carbolic acid), alum (a preservative), and acetone which is a volatile solvent used in fingernail polish remover.

I definately do NOT want to be forced to take things like this, do you? I would suggest calling your US Senator right now and expressing your opinion.

The bottom line is:

1) If the Burr bill passes, "all economic incentives to insure mandated vaccines are safe will be removed and the American people are facing a future where government can force them to take poorly regulated experimental drugs and vaccines labeled as "countermeasures" or go to jail."

2) BARDA The federal agency which will be in charge will be allowed: "to operate in secret, exempt from the Freedom of Information Act and the Federal AdvisoryCommittee Act, insuring that no evidence of injuries or deaths caused by drugs and vaccines labeled as "countermeasures" will become public."

3) "It is a sad day for this nation when Congress is frightened and bullied into allowing one profit making industry to destroy the seventh Amendment to the Constitution guaranteeing citizens their day in court in front of a jury of their peers," said Barbara Loe Fisher, president of NVIC.

Please read the article/alert below and take action today. Pass this on to EVERYONE! Contact your Senators today and let them know that THEY ARE NOT TO SUPPORT THIS UNDEMOCRATIC, UNAMERICAN LEGISLATION. The bill number and name is:

U.S. Senate Bill 1873 the "Biodefense and Pandemic Vaccine and Drug Development Act of 2005

E-NEWS FROM THE NATIONAL VACCINE INFORMATION CENTER Vienna, Virginia http://www.nvic.org


NVIC Note: Yesterday we witnessed the Senate HELP Committee pass this bill out of sub-committee. It is critical that you take action today-immediately. This bill will go back to the committee for a final review on Thursday-October 20, 2005 and then go to the full Senate for a vote. Being led by Republican Richard Burr (R-NC) and being spurred by fears of avian flu, this bill was written and passed out of committee in a 24 hour period. Most members did not even have the final language in front of them.

The version that passed will broadly eliminate liability for vaccines and drugs. Please read the press release, write to the members of the HELP committee, write to your own Senator and your own member of Congress. Pass this alert to your family, friends and other organizations you are involved with. Go to our website and take action right now! Don't wait for someone else to do it. This is a CODE RED alert to anyone who is concerned about forced vaccination and holding drug companies responsible for the products they create. www.NVIC.org

WASHINGTON, Oct. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- The National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) is calling the "Biodefense and Pandemic Vaccine and Drug Development Act of 2005"(S. 1873), which passed out of the U.S. Senate HELP Committee one day after it was introduced "a drug company stockholder's dream and a consumer's worst nightmare." The proposed legislation will strip Americans of the right to a trial by jury if harmed by an experimental or licensed drug or vaccine that they are forced by government to take whenever federal health officials declare a public health emergency.

The legislation's architect, Senator Richard Burr (R-NC), Chairman of the HELP Subcommittee on Bioterrorism and Public Health Preparedness, told the full HELP Committee yesterday that the legislation "creates a true partnership" between the federal government, the pharmaceutical industry and academia to walk the drug companies "through the Valley of Death" in bringing a new vaccine or drug to market. Burr said it will give the Department of Health and Human Services "additional authority and resources to partner with the private sector to rapidly develop drugs and vaccines." The Burr bill gives the Secretary of DHHS the sole authority to decide whether a manufacturer violated laws mandating drug safety and bans citizens from challenging his decision in the civil court system.

The bill establishes the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Agency (BARDA), as the single point of authority within the government for the advanced research and development of drugs and vaccines in response to bioterrorism and natural disease outbreaks such as the flu.

BARDA will operate in secret, exempt from the Freedom of Information Act and the Federal AdvisoryCommittee Act, insuring that no evidence of injuries or deaths caused by drugs and vaccines labeled as "countermeasures" will become public.

Nicknamed "Bioshield Two," the legislation is being pushed rapidly through Congress without time for voters to make their voices heard by their elected representatives. Co-sponsored by Republican Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-TN), Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee Chairman Mike Enzi (R-WY), and Senate Budget Committee Chairman Judd Gregg (R-NH), the legislation will eliminate both regulatory and legal safeguards applied to vaccines as well as take away the right of children and adults harmed by vaccines and drugs to present their case in front of a jury in a civil court of law.

"It is a sad day for this nation when Congress is frightened and bullied into allowing one profit making industry to destroy the seventh Amendment to the Constitution guaranteeing citizens their day in court in front of a jury of their peers," said Barbara Loe Fisher, president of NVIC.

"This proposed legislation, like the power and money grab by federal health officials and industry in the Homeland Security Act of 2002 and the Project Bioshield Act of 2004, is an unconstitutional attempt by some in Congress to give a taxpayer-funded handout to pharmaceutical companies for drugs and vaccines the government can force all citizens to use while absolving everyone connected from any responsibility for injuries and deaths which occur. It means that, if an American is injured by an experimental flu or anthrax vaccine he or she is mandated to take, that citizen will be banned from exercising the Constitutional right to a jury trial even if it is revealed that the vaccine maker engaged in criminal fraud and negligence in the manufacture of the vaccine."

The federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is legally responsible for regulating the pharmaceutical industry and ensuring that drugs and vaccines released to the public are safe and effective. Drug companies marketing painkillers, like Vioxx, and anti-depressants, which have resulted in the deaths and injuries of thousands of children and adults, are being held accountable in civil court while the FDA has come under intense criticism for withholding information about the drugs' dangers from the public. Since1986, vaccine makers have been protected from most liability in civil court through the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act in which Congress created a federal vaccine injury compensation program (VICP) that offers vaccine victims an alternative to the court system. Even though the program has awarded nearly $2 billion to victims of mandated vaccines, two out of three plaintiffs are turned away.

"The drug companies and doctors got all the liability protection they needed in 1986 but they are greedy and want more," said Fisher. "And the federal health agencies want more power to force citizens to use vaccines without having to worry about properly regulating them. If the Burr bill passes, all economic incentives to insure mandated vaccines are safe will be removed and the American people are facing a future where government can force them to take poorly regulated experimental drugs and vaccines labeled as "countermeasures" or go to jail. The only recourse for citizens will be to strike down mandatory vaccination laws so vaccines will be subject to the law of supply and demand in the marketplace. The health care consumer's cry will be: No liability? No mandates."

The National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) was founded by parents of vaccine injured children in 1982 and co-founders worked with Congress on the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986. For more information, go to http://www.nvic.org

Flu Vaccine "Whistleblower" subjected to "Witch Hunt"
(Posted on another group along the line with my other posts - interesting developments. Anna

That vaccines can cause severe damage is a fact that is meticulously kept away from the population of most third world countries. In the developed countries it is an "open secret" with the governments and the medical system preferring to look the other way for reasons best known to them. Vaccines with the mercury additive "thimerosol" has been banned in some States of the USA but the ban exists only on paper. The mercury lodges itself in the fat cells of the brain and cannot be eliminated by the body. Vaccines also contain aluminium, formaldehyde and other preservatives. The main ingredient is animal serum that is often contaminated. The vaccines are delivered directly into the bloodstream bypassing the body's natural defence system. Till date no detailed studies on the after effects of vaccinations has ever been carried out.

The fact that vaccines do cause damage is borne out by many court judgements in the USA forcing the government to create a vaccine damage fund to compensate the bereaved families who have lost their healthy children to vaccine shots. Many cases of infant deaths in the USA are now being reopened as anti vaccine lobbies composed of angry parents try to dig deeper into the muck. In the developing countries the governments are secure because protests over vaccines can be easily buried by medical jargon. There are numerous instances in India of children being affected by "polio like" diseases, "tuberculosis like" diseases after getting vaccinated. Such a case where the child population of entire villages have been affected by a polio like disorder after administration of the polio vaccine has surfaced in a village of Orissa and another village in the Medinipur district of West Bengal. The Orissa case was dealt with extensively by the Oriya TV channel OTV.

As the article reproduced below points out, autism and attention deficit related disorders in children can today be directly linked to vaccines. The medical authorities say "very few" children are adversely affected by vaccines. Try telling that to a mother who has lost her child.

The current avian flu scare will help vaccine manufacturers dispose off 30 million unutilised vaccines that were manufactured during the last scare but never utilised. In most countries vaccines have become mandatory with children receiving 10 to 12 jabs excluding booster shots. New vaccines are on the anvil for AIDS, though the link between AIDS and the small pox vaccine is rarely disputed. By next year a vaccine for crevical cancer, supposedly caused by the Human Papilloma Virus, will be ready. This cancer virus, to protect against a VD related cancer, will be given to children below the sexual maturity age. Medical experts say that this vaccine will "encourage" the manufacture of similiar vaccines for other types of cancer. It can be pointed out here that alternative therapies which do not support the virus theory have routinely helped cancer patients tide over the disease state.

What is never debated is whether vaccines are at all efficacious. We continue to see cases of tuberculosis, polio etc. despite massive vaccination drives. Diseases return with "morphed viruses" that have changed themselves with time. Recently the Hindustan Times carried a very brief news report on the protests of the anti vaccine lobby in India while commenting that their numbers were "very small". Obviously it will require a disaster of epic proportions before any corrective measures can be initiated.

Regards, Jagannath.

Very interesting interview. Every point that the BBC interviewer trued to trap him on he outboxed her. Esp. amusing was when she tried to discredit him for writing articles for the al-Jazeera English language website.

Is This the Death of America?

The US, we learn, is 43rd in the world infant mortality rankings. A baby born in Beijing has nearly three times the chance of reaching its first birthday than a baby born in Washington. Those who survive face rotten schools. On reading and math tests for 15-year-olds, America is 24th out of 29 nations.

MAKE VOTING REFORM A REALITY IN CONGRESS

First we celebrate two victories. Our California participants used the system we created specifically for them to send messages to their individual members of the CA legislature and the governor to help get SB 370 PASSED AND SIGNED, a pioneering voter verified paper audit trail bill that can now serve as the model for the rest of the country.

Second, the Senate approved 90-9 a provision to constrain the Bush administration from continuing their policy of illegal international torture, another alert where we also had many submissions. We will follow up with another action to override a presidential veto if necessary. Outside of Bush, who will listen to nobody but a sentencing judge at the conclusion of his war crimes trial, this proves any member of any party can be moved if they hear from enough of their constituents. We will claim all victories just as soon as each and every one of our participants will RESPOND TO AND SUBMIT EACH AND EVERY ALERT you receive from us.

TAKE ACTION NOW TO STOP MIERS AT http://www.nocrony.com

or try http://www.usalone.com/formhelp2.htm#pet2 (if you can't through on the main action page above)

EVERYBODY KNOWS MIERS IS NOTHING MORE THAN A CRONY

The Republican National Committee and the White House held a joint mobilizing conference call to rally their most extreme right wing supporters behind Harriet Miers, their "get out of conviction on appeal" free card. We have prepared a rush transcript. Here is a typically chilling quote:

"He and she [the president and Miers] both understand that if she were to get on the court, and she were to rule in ways that are contrary to the way the president would want her to approach her role as a justice, it would be a deep personal betrayal, and would be perceived as such both by him and by her." [full transcript at http://www.nocrony.com]

This is absolutely nothing more than a patently crony nomination, and is perceived by even its supporters as exactly that and being sold as such. It is a matter of the utmost urgency that you communicate to your senators that this nomination is not worthy of any consideration at all on that basis alone. As if our members of Congress had not sold the people so far down the river already, do we really need ANOTHER lockstep administration loyalist on our Supreme Court?

And leading the charge once again to give away the farm is Harry Reid, who said "I'm very happy we have someone like her." At least Neville Chamberlain didn't say how happy he was that Poland was invaded. Reid must be removed immediately from any leadership role, as he is now compromised beyond any possible redemption. We need someone who will STAND UP against these outrages, not a cheerleader for the other side. While we are opposing Miers we must also tell our senators that Reid has GOT TO GO as minority leader.

TAKE ACTION NOW TO STOP MIERS AT http://www.nocrony.com

or try http://www.usalone.com/formhelp2.htm#pet2 (if you can't through on the main action page above)

We all know how much the reactionaries love their talking points. Here are ours:

1) NO BUSH CRONY EVEN DESERVES A HEARING

Have we not seen the disaster wrought by installation of hardcore administration cronies in positions of the highest responsibility? Must our Supreme Court go the way of New Orleans? There are many jobs in this world where you have to qualify to even GET a job interview. Surely a seat on our Supreme Court is one of them. Some say they need to hear what she has to say. That is just more of the same surrender babble, and is based on two false premises, that we don't ALREADY know where Miers stands, and that she will disclose anything meaningful under examination. There is nothing coming but another Roberts' style stonewall, and for all those reasons we say NO HEARING.

2) THE MAJORITY OF THE AMERICAN PUBLIC DEMAND A MODERATE

It's time to fight for what we really want on principle. It's time for those who would presume to represent us to take up that fight. And the American people will tolerate NO MORE extremist far right appointees to our Supreme Court. Every day Bush's popularity rating sinks to a new record low. It is only his totally corrupt party caucus, now with a temporary majority in the House of Representatives, that has prevented the initiation of impeachment proceedings already for his incompetence and malfeasance. We the people demand that any further nominees be no worse than true MODERATES. That's our position and we're sticking to it.

MAKE VOTING REFORM A REALITY IN CONGRESS TOO

http://www.velvetrevolution.us/Content/VotingReform/pen3.php

Using the constituent submission technology we are sharing with them, VelvetRevolution.com is spearheading the campaign to support HR 550, the Rush Holt bill that:

(1) establishes a requirement for a voter verified paper ballot created for every vote cast;

(2) establishes a mandatory uniform national standard that states that the voter verified paper ballot -- the only record verified by the voter rather than the voting machine -- is the vote of record in the case of any inconsistency with electronic records;

(3) provides Federal funding to pay for implementation of voter verified paper balloting;

(4) requires a percentage of mandatory random audits in every state, and in each county, for every Federal election;

(5) prohibits use of undisclosed software, wireless communication devices, and internet connections in voting machines;

(6) is required to be fully implemented by 2006; and

(7) protects the accessibility mandates of the Help America Vote Act.

Send your message to Congress supporting HR 550 and with the one click form you can send a letter to the editor of your nearest daily newspaper at the same time

http://www.velvetrevolution.us/Content/VotingReform/pen3.php

This is a perfect compliment to the ground-breaking California SB 370 which our participants were so instrumental in helping to get enacted into law. Read what the California Election Protection Network had to say about the work of our participants:

"I hope you just received my email moments ago informing you that SB 370 was signed by Schwarzenegger."

"Your incredible efforts and magnificent petition must have played some large role in this victory."

"Just Thank you doesn't even touch my gratitude."

"Your efforts and magnanimity are truly heroic!"

Let us now build on the momentum of this glorious victory in California to bring justice and transparency to all voting systems nationwide. First we must BELIEVE we can win. The rest is easy. Make it so at

http://www.velvetrevolution.us/Content/VotingReform/pen3.php

Please take action NOW, so we can win all victories that are supposed to be ours, and forward this message to everyone else you know.
