VETERANS FOR PEACE – Official Statement On U.S. Marine Scott Olsen Shot By Oakland Police 

  • from The Daily Bail 

    October 27, 2011

    Veterans For Peace

    Veteran For Peace member, Scott Olsen, a Marine Corps veteran twice deployed to Iraq, is in hospital now in stable but serious condition with a fractured skull, struck by a police projectile fired into a crowd in downtown Oakland, California in the early morning hours of today.  Other people were injured in the assault and many were arrested after Oakland police in riot gear were ordered to evict people encamped in the ongoing “Occupy Oakland” movement.  Olsen is also a member of Iraq Veterans Against the War.

    VFP members are involved with dozens of these local “occupy movement” encampments and we support them fully.  In Boston, for example, our members, wearing VFP shirts and carrying VFP flags, stood between a line of police and the encampment, urging police to “join the 99%” and not evict the protesters.  In that case, several of our members were banged and bruised when the police decided instead to carry out their eviction orders.

    In Oakland, last night, a similar thing happened, according to VFP Chapter 69 member and Navy veteran, Joshua Sheperd, who said he went to downtown Oakland “to see if, as a VFP member, I could help still the anger…to be between the police and the protesters…it seemed unconscionable to me that the police use the cover of darkness like that to do what they were doing.”  Fortunately, he was not injured in the police assault that left Olsen with a fractured skull

    As with virtually every example of the occupy movement across the country, those encamped were conducting themselves peacefully beforehand, protesting current economic, social and environmental conditions in the U.S. brought about by decades of corporate control, a criminal financial industry and wars in Iraq and Afghanistan that are driving the U.S. global empire into bankruptcy.  These “occupy movement” participants are telling us something we need very desperately to hear.  They should be listened to, not arrested and brutalized.

    Police in the majority of cities are acting with restraint and humanity towards the encampments, but Veterans For Peace will not be deterred by police who choose to use brutal tactics.  In fact, as happens with repression everywhere, more people join the cause.  We do believe that the rank and file police officers are part of the 99%,  the overwhelming majority of Americans who are suffering at the hands of an intolerable system.  Layoffs and cutbacks in city after city prove that we must join together to demand justice for all.

    We send our very best to Scott Olsen and his family and wish him a speedy recovery to health.

    We shall not be moved.

    UPDATE – Message from Director, Mike Ferner regarding incident at Occupy Oakland

    Brothers and Sisters
    I just got off the phone with VFP Chapter 69 member, Josh Sheperd, who was at 14th and Broadway in Oakland early this morning and witnessed much of what happened.

    Josh said that after receiving several text messages with news of the Oakland PD taking down tents and arresting people, he decided to go to downtown Oakland and “see if, as a VFP member, I could help still the anger…to be between the police and the protesters…it seemed unconscionable to me that the police use the cover of darkness like that to do what they were doing.”

    He got to the front of the crowd (see photo link, above) and said he “felt a lot of tension in the air.”

    Shortly thereafter a barrage of “less than lethal” ordnance, tear gas, bean bags and flash-bangs was fired.  He and the people he was with took off, regrouped, marched through part of downtown and returned to 14th and Broadway.

    There, he went to the front of the crowd immediately, waving the VFP flag.  He said the crowd seemed considerably calmer. “It might be just my impression, but there seemed to be a considerable desire for peace and the crowd expressed that.”

    Next, the Oakland PD issued the “you’re going to get arrested if you don’t leave” warning.  Shortly after that, Josh said, “People in the rear of the crowd threw eggs at the police and that was the OPD’s cue to fire another barrage.”

    In that barrage, VFP and IVAW member, Scott Olsen was struck in the head with some sort of projectile and was severely injured.  Josh reports that Scott was admitted to hospital and has a fractured skull.  His condition is stable but serious.

    Here are two videos, one showing Scott, wearing a VFP shirt, being carried away.

    The other has some slow motion footage that shows flash-bangs being thrown by the police, including one into a group of people standing around someone in the street. It’s unclear whether that person is Scott Olsen or not.

    IVAW Director, Jose Vasquez, said they are keeping up on the situation, have issued a press release and are contacting national media.  They are asking people to call the Oakland Police Dept.

    *What you can do:*

    • Call the Oakland Police Department *510-777-3333; 510-238-3365; 510-238-3131

    This false flag Iran NONSENSE,  that the U. S. is trying to fool the world with, serves many purposes.

    1.)  Zionist Israel wants it and as our U.S. Government is pretty much owned  by the Israeli Government, ( research it yourself if you don’t believe it ),  Israel will once again get what it wants, ( as it has many, many times already ),  at the price of our children and taxpayer money!


    2.) The U.S. needs to get everybody’s mind off the Occupy Protesters, the unemployment situation, the Fast and Furious scandal and most important of all, to steal another overwhelming amount of wealth like they did on 911 at the towers !!

    3.) The only thing the U. S. manufactures anymore are wars and rumors of wars. Because, by god, they need to keep us and the rest of the world in total fear all the time in order to keep us in total control all the time. 

    Let’s not fall for this false flag event this time as we have with all the others !

    Massachusetts Sussex County Calling for HALT of ALL FORECLOSURES – 

    Attorney General Coakley SUING BANKS for Wrongful Foreclosures in 

    the State of Mass. Why are the other AG’s in U.S. going to allow 

    Lawlessness from Banks?!

    Supreme Court Building saying “Equal Justice Under Law”

    John O’Brien the register of deeds in Sussex County in Massachusetts is calling for a HALT OF ALL FORECLOSURES due to the Mass Supreme Court ruling on the 18th of Oct.

    He also states “PEOPLE SHOULD THINK TWICE ABOUT BUYING A FORECLOSURE!”

    Attorney General Martha Coakley is SUING THE BANKS FOR FRAUDULENT FORECLOSURES IN THE STATE OF MASSACHUSETTS. 

    Portion – Read more at above link: 

    My question is…. if the AG of Mass can see the banks committedFRAUD how come all the other AGs in the U.S. are overlooking all the FRAUD?! How come the AGs of the U.S. are NOT STANDING BY THE LAW? How come the AG’s of the U.S. who are suppose to UPHOLD the Law of the States are going to NOT STAND BY THE PEOPLE BUT STAND BY THE BANKS?!

    I am asking EVERYONE to send something to your AG and ask them – How are they REWRITING LAWS FOR THE BANKS AND NOT UPHOLDING THE LAW!?

    Here is the link to find your Attorney General’s Contact information

    The Attorney Generals are finalizing their deal with the banks and plan on announcing it by the end of this month (October 2011) – EVERYONE Seriously needs to CONTACT their AG and DEMAND THE LAW BE UPHELD FOR THE PEOPLE AND NOT BE REWRITTEN FOR THE BANKS!  IF THEY BROKE THE LAW, THEY NEED TO BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE!  THEY WOULD NOT REWRITE LAWS FOR ALL OF US REGULAR PEOPLE!  THEY WERE ELECTED BY ALL OF US TO UP HOLD THE LAWS AND TO WATCH OVER THE LAWS FOR ALL OF US!

    All of us have to contact our Attorney Generals to get anything done – Tell them they CAN NOT settle with the banks and allow Contract Lawlessness!  They then will make ALL Contracts in the future suspect and with fraud that people would sign with the banks!  NO Contract will ever be safe for the people!  The banks could commit FRAUD over and over and not have to be liable for the fraud!

Semper Fi: Occupy Marines Bringing Reinforcements To Occupy The Nation

    The gathering of just a few US Marines has become a major organized movement to get Marines, police and all branches of military personnel to Occupy America nationwide

    What began as the gathering of just a few US Marines has now become a major organized movement to get Marines and military personnel of all branches to Occupy America nationwide. You can thank Marine Sgt. Shamar Thomas for that. His actions last week have inspired service men and women across the country to take a stand for the American people and join the Occupy protests.

    You can thank Marine Sgt. Shamar Thomas for that. His actions last week have inspired service men and women across the country to take a stand for the American people and join the Occupy protests.

    Sgt. Thomas, as you’ll recall, stood up to the NYPD during the protests in Times Square and told the officers that hurting peacefully protesting American citizens is wrong. His message seemed to work on the officers present since they backed down. Now more members of the military are joining the movement in a strong organizing effort to help the protests get through the winter and beyond.

    “#OccupyMARINES Are Currently Assessing The Current Situation To Ascertain What Is Currently Needed To Support OWS America. We Are Humbled At The Substantial Support OWS America Has Provided And Ask That Everyone Continue As You All Do While We Implement Organization Nationwide. As We All Know, ‘Occupy’ Groups Are Being Established Even Now And Would Like To See This Trend Continue. “

    Their website OccupyMarines.org, is calling for “Non-Active ‘Occupy’ Military Supporters Only” and they are organizing a dress code which will help identify their branch affiliation. So we should be seeing Marines, Army, Navy, and Air Force personnel dressed to impress at Occupy events across the country. Their goal will be to talk sense into police officers and recruit them into supporting the cause.

     #OrganizeMarines states, “Security forces/police should be seen as potential recruits to our cause and message, not as adversaries. Ultimately, they are accountable to the people. Defensive strategies never win. Do not respond to verbal attacks or hostile propaganda from Nay-Sayers by using the language of the opponent. Reframe.”

    One Veteran, Alex Limkin said:

    “There is nothing more central to a free and democratic people than the right to dissent, the right to disagree, the right to stand up in the town square and be heard… I feel quite sure that in standing in solidarity with the peaceful Occupy Wall Street movement, I am doing no less than upholding my oath as an American soldier.”

    Marines were already beginning to support the Occupy Wall Street movement. Now they are bring reinforcements from the Marine Corps and other branches of the United States military, to put their organizational skills, patriotism, and resilience to good use in the effort to give more weight to the protests and help them continue the fight to change America indefinitely. For years, they have fought for us in countries far away. Now, they fight beside us in America.

New Obama Foreclosure Plan Shifts Fraud Liability From Wall Street To Taxpayers 

  • from The Daily Bail 

    October 27, 2011


    Photo – Obama and Jamie Dimon see eye to eye…

    Zach Carter – Huff Po

    WASHINGTON — The Obama administration is introducing a new program on Monday designed to lower monthly mortgage payments for more troubled homeowners.

    But a key new condition in the plan would shift the financial liability for refinanced loans from Wall Street banks to the American taxpayer. And by focusing on lower payments, the program does not confront what housing experts view as the core problem in the foreclosure crisis — borrower debt that exceeds the value of one’s home.

    Faced with the weak response to the Home Affordable Refinance Program, the Obama administration is planning to open up the program to all borrowers who owe more on their mortgage than their homes’ worth, commonly dubbed being underwater, and have not missed a mortgage payment. HARP had been limited to borrowers who owed up to 25 percent more than their home is worth. More than 22 percent of all home mortgages — or 10.9 million homes — are currently underwater, according to CoreLogic data. Fewer than 900,000 borrowers have elected to go through HARP to date.

    The revised program also eliminates several fees associated with refinancing that can make the decision to refinance uneconomical for borrowers. But the potential benefit of the eliminated fees could be relatively small: If a few thousand dollars worth of fees made refinancing a bad deal for underwater borrowers, the ultimate benefits that refinancing can pose would remain limited.

    On a conference call with reporters, White House National Economic Council Director Gene Sperling referred to the HARP expansion as “a win-win policy” that will result in “less defaults” and “fewer foreclosures.” But one of the program’s new terms will benefit private-sector Wall Street banks, potentially at the expense of taxpayers.

    The newly expanded program would expunge legal liabilities associated with mortgages refinanced through the program for the original lenders of the mortgages. Each time a bank sent a loan to Fannie and Freddie, it certified that the loan met Fannie and Freddie’s safe lending criteria. But many loans sent to the mortgage giants did not, in fact, meet those criteria. Currently, when borrowers default on those ineligible loans, the mortgage giants can “put back” the resulting losses onto the banks that pushed the loans.

    Under the modified plan, “put back” liability at banks will be erased for any underwater mortgage that is refinanced through HARP, eliminating Fannie and Freddie’s ability to sack lenders with losses in the event that the mortgage does not pan out.

    If borrowers go through HARP, but decide after several months that the modest monthly savings do not outweigh owing tens of thousands of dollars more than their home is worth, taxpayer-owned Fannie and Freddie will have to take the full loss. Even if the original loan was sent to Fannie and Freddie with false or fraudulent guarantees from the bank — promises that may directly be tied to the borrower’s current financial problems — banks will be immune from liability. Fannie and Freddie plan to charge banks “a modest fee” to extinguish this liability, but the administration has yet to determine what that fee will be.

    While the revised program seeks to lower mortgage payments for underwater homeowners, the program does nothing to address the core problem — owing more than the home is worth. Though borrowers may save hundreds of dollars a month in lower payments by refinancing, they routinely owe tens of thousands of dollars more than their homes are worth, even after receiving aid.

    “In most cases people would probably be better off walking,” said economist Dean Baker, co-director of the Center for Economic Policy and Research.

    During a conference call with reporters, Department of Housing and Urban Development Secretary Shaun Donovan acknowledged that negative equity is a problem, and said the administration hopes to address the issue on other fronts. Donovan cited settlement negotiations with big banks over widespread allegations of foreclosure fraud and initiatives under the Home Affordable Modification Program, a separate Obama foreclosure-relief plan administered by banks, as key initiatives.

    New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden have both objected to the foreclosure fraud settlement talks on the grounds that they give away too much to banks without investigating the scope of fraud problems in the system. The Home Affordable Modification Program has been a hotbed for the kind of borrower abuses that the administration is pressuring lenders to settle over.

Beck: EAS Test Allows Feds to ‘Seize Control’ of Communications

    For the first time, broadcasters will have no choice on whether to partake in the nationwide alert

    Paul Joseph Watson
    Infowars.com
    Tuesday, October 25, 2011

    Radio host Glenn Beck has spoken of his fear that the upcoming Emergency Alert System test being conducted by Homeland Security and FEMA on November 9 gives the government the pretext to “seize control” of communications in America, because for the first time broadcasters will have no choice on whether to partake.


    Beck explained that in every previous instance where the EAS system was tested, broadcasters were in control of whether or not to flip the switch, although they did face losing their broadcast license if they failed to partake. However, for the very first time, the federal government will have complete control over the broadcast frequency and will be able to override all radio and television stations.

    Next month’s test also marks the first time that the alert has been conducted nationwide.

    “The nationwide test may last up to three and a half minutes. The public will hear a message indicating that “This is a test.” The audio message will be the same for radio, television and cable,”states a FEMA press release.

    Beck warned that the first of its kind test gave the government the pretext to take over all civilian communication outlets under the guise of a national emergency.

    “If the state wants to take control…they can just take it and there is nothing I can do about it,” Beck stated, adding that the process “seizes control of the broadcast frequency.”

     

    Beck questioned the timing of the test, asking why it was being conducted in the middle of a work day at 2pm and not at midnight on a Saturday.

    “Why are we testing this thing at 2pm on a Wednesday when we don’t even know if this damn thing will work – who does that?” asked Beck, drawing attention to the fact that FEMA has indicated it isn’t even sure whether television broadcasts will display a message or not during the test.

    “Who takes the nation’s communications and shuts it down in the middle of a work day on a Wednesday when the whole world is in revolution? That doesn’t help calm things, Mr. President,” said Beck.

    The fact that the government has also chosen a date which is the reverse of 9/11 (the 9th of November being 11/9), is also unlikely to reduce anxiety surrounding the test.

Foods, cosmetics and vaccines all widely formulated with toxic smoothing agents (emulsifiers) 

  • from Prison Planet.com 

    October 25, 2011

    First Posted October 22, 2011

    The greedy corporate strategy of cutting corners to expand profits now means “injecting” toxic smoothing agents into everything from eye drops and yogurt to cosmetics and flu shots. And nothing is being done by the FDA or the CDC to stop it. Thanks to emulsifiers like sorbitol, soy lecithin, sodium caseinate, polysorbate 80, poloxamer 407, and thimerosal, the list of smoothing agents is growing every day, and they are appearing in more than just “small amounts.”

    If you think the gurus on Wall Street are smooth criminals “getting away with murder,” the latest toxic-laden preservatives are moving in undetected, compromising consumers state of health in the short term and the long term, including immediate heart problems and central nervous system disorders. Some of these “repeat offenders” include detergents and aluminum that are injected directly into your veins in flu shots, leading to seizures, autism, miscarriages, and even Alzheimer’s disease.

    These “efficient delivery devices” are often ignored by the general public because many consumers just follow along with the masses, believing that the FDA and the United States Government would never allow poisons in foods, cosmetics and vaccinations. Immediate gratification has many consumers preoccupied with the conveniences of an over-stimulated society, and up to 23 of the 25 average products that aren’t strictly organic are toxic.

    If you think you’re being careful by requesting additive free vaccines and flu shots, you’ve only scraped off the tip of a dangerous iceberg. Even if there is no polysorbate 80 or aluminum in an injection, vaccines are capable of inducing prolonged activation of the brain’s microglia immune cells. This prolonged activation is associated with diseases like multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and vaccine-related encephalitis.

    Here are the most frequently used chemical emulsifiers

    Are you ready to check the labels and ingredients on everything in your pantry, refrigerator, bathroom cabinet, and in those flu shots yet? Which flu shots are the most dangerous, and are there any safe ones at all? Fluvirin and Flushield contain chick embryonic fluid and synthetic emulsifiers. Polysorbate 80 is associated with allergic reactions like difficulty breathing, tightness in the chest, sudden loss of balance, and coughing up blood.

    Many vaccines and flu shots contain aluminum, which serves as a delivery vehicle, for helping certain components stay soluble. Do some research on aluminum hydroxide, aluminum phosphate and potassium aluminum sulfate, and you may never get another flu shot in your life.

    Sorbitol is in almost every diet food, diet drink, gum, breath mint, eye drop and contact lens solution. Fooling the body because it tastes sweet, this softening agent fuels the development of colon cancer because the body cannot process and excrete it properly. Sorbitol is a known carcinogen that maintains the softness for food and gives eye care products that slippery feel.

    Poloxamer 407, the key ingredient in most mouthwashes, is a detergent. It causes bladder cancer in animals. Long term use of mouthwashes is associated with an increased risk of mouth and throat cancers. Listerine contains Poloxamer 407.

    Soy lecithin increases risks of breast cancer. Soy lecithin is produced as a result of the sludge that is left over after crude soy oil goes through a “degumming” process. It is a waste product that contains solvents and pesticides.

    Sodium caseinate is a fancy name for casein, a known carcinogen. Manufacturers add hydrochloric acid to this processed milk protein in order to reach desired pH levels. Look for casein in paint, glue, cheese, most soy and whey protein shake mixes, and in those popular protein bars. Casein can act as a histamine releaser, aggravating autism and promoting cancerous cell growth.

    The label “natural skin care” doesn’t mean a whole lot these days either. Kiss My Face is a brand known to call everything natural, while still containing toxins like sorbitan oleate and other dangerous emulsifiers.

    Watch out for phenoxyethanol, a popular antibacterial and preservative chemical often referred to as natural by organic skin care brands. Phenoxyethanol can act as an endocrine disruptor, causing damage to the bladder, brain, and nervous system in animals. Try not to forget that humans are also animals.

Still under wraps: crimes and cover-ups waiting for answers 

  • from Redress 

    October 23, 2011

    By Paul J. Balles

    23 October 2011

    Paul J. Balles reviews the crimes and cover-ups still awaiting the international spotlight, from Israel’s murder of US sailors aboard the USS Liberty, to Israel’s nuclear programme and Bush administration war crimes.

    Here’s a story to contemplate:

    From a passenger ship, everyone can see a bearded man on a small island. He is shouting and desperately waving his hands.

    “Who is it?” a passenger asks the captain.

    “I’ve no idea. Every year when we pass, he goes nuts.”

    At times I feel like the bearded old man going nuts over the passing ship missing the point.

    Previously, I mentioned seven subjects that have been covered up. The taboo topics included:

     

    • The USS Liberty cover-up

    •  Israel’s nuclear programme

    •  9/11 truth seekers discoveries

    •  Big business corruption

    •  Bush administration crimes

    •  Plight of the Palestinians

    •  Murder by un-manned drones.

     

    The last of these seven items has emerged from under wraps following a spate of public criticism over the assassination of an American citizen by a remote controlled drone.

    I received several comments and a letter from a reader who indicated a desire to know more about the other topics. She wrote:


    “I would love to know more about ‘the obscured issues that deserve more than a passing interest’… Could you please send me the websites so that I can educate myself and get to have an idea of what is really going on.”

     


     

    In the age of powerful internet search tools, the request came as something of a surprise. It shouldn’t have. Those who regularly use the internet for research often forget that our readers don’t know.

    Those who find the internet a treasure trove of answers to almost any question concern ourselves with reliability not availability.

    The best brief answer to the question about where to look is to type the whole question into an internet search engine, such as Google. If the sites that come up don’t appear to answer your question, reword your query.

    Another reader wrote: “Yes, these subjects should be investigated but it won’t happen.”

    He’s right. Unless those of us who believe they should be investigated keep harping on these issues, they will fade away.

    Strangely enough, the assassination question associated with murders by unmanned drones, forced that issue out from undercover.

    Fortunately, the legality, the morality and the danger of blowback associated with assassinations reached the public arena.

    The plight of the Palestinians has received more than usual attention since the Palestinian Authority decided to petition the UN for more complete recognition of Palestinian statehood.

    Forced into a corner by the prospect of becoming a one-state apartheid regime, Netanyahu has now agreed to negotiate all issues related to a two-state solution. He’s buying time with words.

    Big business corruption has been garnering the best kind of attention to its self-serving oligarchy by demonstrations now taking place in major cities internationally.

    With steadfast attention to their goal and continued marching toward public action that the government has reneged upon, the jobless may have found truly rewarding employment in their protests.

    It’s doubtful that the remaining four will elicit enough public attention or support to force action or investigations.


    The  USS Liberty cover-up receives occasional attention from veterans or veterans groups who usually have more urgent needs and broader concerns demanding their time and energy.

     Israel’s nuclear weapons programme will continue under wraps with the US and EU giving no more than occasional lip service to the International Atomic Energy Agency, whose findings they ignore.

    Too many of the US government’s present staff were also part of the Bush administration for those guilty of war crimes to be prosecuted from the top down.

    Despite the plethora of legitimate questions about the 9/11 attacks, the fantasies of some have led to dismissal of all truth seekers as conspiracy theorists.

    If going nuts as the ship passes helps, three rescues show promise.

‘Bank Transfer Day’ Causes Credit Union Buzz 

  • from Common Dreams.org 

    October 17, 2011

    by Jim Rubenstein

    Even with most credit unions closed for Columbus Day there was plenty of online buzz, and uncertainty, about what the credit union industry role might be on “Bank Transfer Day,” the latest event surfacing from the “Occupy Wall Street” protests.

    Industry sources, speaking off the record, suggested any wholesale switch from large banks to CUs on Nov. 5, the day designated by one Californian and carried atwitter Monday, could conceivably put net worth ratios out of whack. 

     

    The balance sheet problem was raised by several industry officials as a potential hazard as online articles focused on what “Occupy”supporters are calling now for a specific action to underscore their complaints against big banks and corporate “greed.”

    For the record, Mark Wolff, CUNA senior vice president-communications, said only that the trade group welcomes the idea of “a viral ‘Bank Transfer Day’” since it shows “just how angry consumers are becoming with their treatment by big banks”and will now look at CUs.

    CUNA said its Facebook posts have already witnessed big jumps in traffic on www.asmarterhoice.org. There also have been big gains on www.findacreditunion.org.

    Many consumers, said CUNA, are already “discovering” credit unions online and “many more no doubt will as a result of this Bank Transfer Day initiative.”

    Wire service reports Monday identified the ringleader of “Bank Transfer Day” as Kristen Christian, a 27-year-old Los Angeles art gallery owner who said she is not affiliated with the Occupy Wall Street protest, but that demonstration organizers had reached out to her to express support.

    Christian reportedly chose Nov. 5 because of its association with 17th century British folk hero Guy Fawkes, who tried to blow up the British House of Lords but was captured on that day.

    Facebook page for the event states that “”together we can ensure that these banking institutions will ALWAYS remember the 5th of November!! If the 99% removes our funds from the major banking institutions on or by this date, we will send a clear message and give the 1% a taste of the fear that we experience every day when we aren’t able to pay for our rent, food, medication, utilities, student loans, etc.”

    The protests began in New York and have popped up around the country. A few hundred protesters gathered in Las Vegas, for instance, on Thursday night and were escorted by police for a march down the Strip. Among the calls for action on the flyers being distributed was to move banking accounts to credit unions.

Flu Vaccine Pushed Despite Nerve Disease Link

    The push for the H1N1-loaded 2011 flu vaccine has begun, with the CDC calling on healthcare workers and citizens around the world to become vaccinated. The call comes almost a full year after government health chiefs confirmed a link between the H1N1-containing seasonal flu vaccination and the killer nerve disease known as Guillain-Barre Syndrome (see quoted article below for sourcing). Oftentimes leading to partial paralysis and death, The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) issued a warning over the link following a report that 50% of doctors were refusing the swine flu vaccine over health concerns.

     

    Organizations around the world have been speaking out against the H1N1 vaccine,  speaking out against the risk of Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS). Even the mainstream media was forced to report on the association between the vaccine and GBS, with the Times Online offering warning that 

     

    the vaccine had a ‘death link’. Neurologists around the world were even warned about the safety of the vaccine by Professor Elizabeth Miller, head of the immunization department for UK’s Health Protection Agency.

    “The vaccines used to combat an expected swine influenza pandemic in 1976 were shown to be associated with GBS and were withdrawn from use,” she wrote in a letter to neurologists.

    Why then, would anyone receive the swine flu vaccine? The simple answer is that the swine flu scare drove some citizens to run in fear, with the vaccine as their advertised salvation. In reality, swine flu did not turn out to be the pandemic that it was propagated to be. Citizens would be better off improving their immune system naturally through proper nutrition than to receive a deadly swine flu vaccine.Why then, would anyone receive the swine flu vaccine?

Citizens would be better off improving their immune system naturally through proper nutrition than to receive a deadly swine flu vaccine.Here ithe report that I wrote on October 18, 2010 warning readers about the link between the flu shot and Guillain-Barre Syndrome:

     

    Last year, you would be considered a medical “fraud” if you were to say that the swine flu vaccine may lead to Guillain-Barre Syndrome, a deadly autoimmune disorder that can lead to partial paralysis and death. Now, however, even the government is admitting that the swine flu vaccine may cause Guillain-Barre Syndrome.

     

    The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) issued a statement regarding the link between Guillain-Barre and the swine flu vaccine.

     

    “Given the uncer tainties in the available information and as with seasonal flu vaccines, a slightly elevated risk of GBS following H1N1 vaccines cannot be ruled out. Epidemiological studies are ongoing to further assess this possible association.”

     

    Unfortunately, this announcement has come far too late. Thousands of vaccines have been given worldwide, with 14,000 children in Oklahoma as test subjects for the experimental first wave of the swine flu vaccines in 2009. There was no shortage of warnings regarding the vaccine, however, with about 50% of doctors refusing to be injected. Citizens and doctors alike were also warned numerous times that the swine flu vaccine had a direct link with Guillain-Barre Syndrome.

    Even mainstream media was forced to pick up on the link, with the Times Online offering warning that the vaccine had a “death link”. Neurologists around the world were even warned about the safety of the vaccine by Professor Elizabeth Miller, head of the immunization department for UK’s Health Protection Agency.

    The vaccines used to combat an expected swine influenza pandemic in 1976 were shown to be associated with GBS and were withdrawn from use, she wrote in a letter to neurologists.

    Of course the government was quick to claim that the vaccinations were completely safe, and had met all of the safety requirements.

    The department of health was quick to go against Professor Miller and claim that the vaccines had passed all of the required tests: Appropriate trials to assess safety and immune responses have been carried out on vaccines very similar to the swine flu vaccine. The vaccines have been shown to have a good safety profile.

    If the government was confident regarding the safety of the vaccination, then why were manufacturers given complete legal immunity? This legal immunity made it impossible to sue the manufacturers of the swine flu vaccine. Even if the vaccines were safe to begin with, wouldn’t this enhance carelessness of the manufacturers? With complete legal immunity, the makers could get away with anything.
