Polio Vaccine Results India

In 2011 alone, the Bill and Melinda Gates’ polio vaccine campaign in India caused 47,500 cases of paralysis and death

Untested vaccines causing new wave of polio-like paralysis across India

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is financially backing and publicly endorsing mass polio virus vaccinations in India. In case you didn’t hear him yourself, Bill Gates publicly announced that vaccines could help reduce the world population by 15%.

Gates also proclaimed that every newborn should be registered for vaccinations immediately to assure the goal of 90% of the population getting vaccinated for his “century of the vaccination.”

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation program in India was promoted as “The Last Mile: Eradicating polio in India.” The promotional video displayed numbers showing thousands of cases of polio in India decades ago, with the number of cases dropping to 42 by 2010. But it appears that wild polio virus stats have been traded for polio from vaccines and non-polio acute flaccid paralysis (NPAFP).

In India, over 47,000 cases of NPAFP were reported in 2011. The paralysis symptoms of NPAFP are practically the same as what’s attributed to “eradicated” wild virus polio. Apparently, vaccine polio viruses also cause polio paralysis.

4,250% Increase in Fetal Deaths Reported to VAERS After Flu Shot Given to Pregnant Women

Deadly Flu Shots To Pregnant Women

Nov 23rd, 2012 | By Christina England

An increase of fetal deaths were reported to VAERS after pregnant women were given flu vaccines.

Documentation received from the National Coalition of Organized Women (NCOW) states that between 2009 and 2010 the mercury-laden combined flu vaccinations have increased Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting Systems (VAERS) fetal death reports by 4,250 percent in pregnant women. Eileen Dannemann, NCOW’s director, made abundantly clear that despite these figures being known to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the multiple-strain, inactivated flu vaccine containing mercury (Thimerosal) has once again been recommended to pregnant women as a safe vaccination this season.

Outraged by the CDC’s total disregard for human life, Ms. Dannemann accused the CDC of ’willful misconduct,’ saying that they are responsible for causing the deaths of thousands of unborn babies. She stated that the CDC deliberately misled the nation’s obstetricians and gynecologists and colluded with the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology (AJOG) to mislead the public by advertising the flu vaccine as a safe vaccine for pregnant women when they knew fully well that it was causing a massive spike in fetal deaths.

In a letter to Dr. Joseph Mercola, Ms. Dannemann wrote:

“Not only did the CDC fail to disclose the spiraling spike in fetal death reports in real time during the 2009 pandemic season as to cut the fetal losses, but also we have documented by transcript Dr. Marie McCormick, chairperson of the Vaccine Safety Risk Assessment Working Group (VSRAWG) on September 3, 2010, denying any adverse events in the pregnant population during the 2009 Pandemic season.” [1]


Because the H1N1 pandemic vaccine had never been tested on the pregnant population, and to lessen the intensity of fears of the unknown risks, Dr. Marie McCormick of the CDC was employed to keep track of all adverse events during the 2009 pandemic season, including those adverse events in the pregnant population. Dr. McCormick was responsible for sending monthly reports to the Secretary of the Health and Human Services (HHS), citing any suspicious adverse events.

According to Ms. Dannemann, NCOW has been unable to obtain access to these monthly reports. After sending a Freedom of Information Act request to the CDC, she was told that she may have to wait 36 months to access what should be published public reports.

The Mercola letter continues:

“The Advisory Committee on Childhood Vaccines (ACCV) and CDC were confronted with the VAERS data from NCOW on September 3, 2010, in Washington, D.C., and then again by conference call on September 10, and then again in Atlanta, Georgia, on October 28, 2010. On both September 3 and September 10, Dr. Marie McCormick clearly denied that there were any adverse events for pregnant women from the 2009 flu vaccine.”


To emphasize their point, on October 28, 2010, NCOW requested that Dr. Rene Tocco present their data at the CDC headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia. The CDC’s Dr. Shimabakuru gave a presentation on significant adverse reactions to the H1N1 vaccine, such as cases of Guillane-Barre Syndrome, which appeared to have risen three percent, claiming it as an insignificant signal.

No mention at all was made of adverse events related to pregnant women. Unfortunately for Dr. Shimabakuru, his attempts to pull the wool over the eyes of the audience were foiled when he was challenged by a member of the audience asking if the vaccine caused adverse events in pregnancy. Feeling cornered, he reluctantly looked in his bag and sheepishly presented a slide that corroborated the NCOW data, confirming that the CDC knew of the spike in fetal deaths in the fall of 2010. [2]

So, why did Dr. Shimabkauru have a slide containing compromising evidence in his bag? Why did he decide to hide the slide? Surely, if he had prepared a slide outlining this crucial data, it would have made sense to include the slide in his presentation. After all, a 4,250 percent increase in fetal deaths is far more significant that a three percent increase in Guillane-Barre Syndrome.

Ms. Dannemann believes that the existence of this slide, along with the omission of it in his presentation, confirms that the CDC knew of the spike in fetal deaths by the fall of 2010 and was attempting by any means possible not to make it public.

Outlining a catalog of events, Ms. Dannemann believes the CDC’s continual cover ups puts the lives of pregnant women and their unborn children in serious jeopardy. She maintained:

“Continuing the vaccine program without notifying the public or the healthcare practitioners of the VAERS miscarriage/stillbirth incoming data was clearly a purposeful decision. The CDC, aware of their own incoming stream of early vaccine adverse events reports, clearly decided to allow the obstetricians to continue, unwittingly, murdering and damaging the unborn so that the CDC’s blunder of recommending the double-dose vaccination of pregnant women could be kept under the radar.”


Despite evidence that the CDC knew of the 4,250 percent increase in fetal death reports in 2009/2010, in order to ensure the continuance of the vaccine program for pregnant women, the CDC published a study in AJOG authored by Dr. Pedro Moro of the CDC in the fall of 2010. The study articulated that there were only 23 miscarriages caused by the single flu vaccine in 19 years between 1990 – 2009, an average of 1.2 miscarriages per year. This study formed the basis of a CDC worldwide publicity campaign that the flu shot was safe for pregnant women by willfully and strategically excluding the 2009 pandemic data, which was available to them. Ms. Dannemann said:

“Both the CDC and AJOG were well aware of the fact that physicians and the public were awaiting the results of the 2009 H1N1 untested vaccine on pregnant women, amid solid assurances to the public at the beginning of the pandemic season that the CDC was on top of collecting any adverse reactions to the vaccine by establishing the Vaccine Safety Risk Assessment Working Group chaired by Dr. Marie Mc Cormick (VSRAWG).”

Ms. Dannemann stated that by including the 2008/2009 flu season’s data but excluding the available 2009 data from the 2009/2010 flu season in the study published in AJOG, Dr. Moro was able to give the impression that the 2009/2010 pandemic season was covered in the data, which of course it was not. Ms. Dannemann believes that this was a deliberate act on his part because he was aware of the fetal death spike in the 2009/2010 data at the time of preparing the study and purposely excluded the 2009 pandemic data from the study to hide this fact.

In the fall of 2010, just in time for the new flu season, media outlets all over the world publicized the AJOG, peer-reviewed CDC/Dr. Moro study as adamant proof that the flu shot is safe for pregnant women. The NCOW documents prove at the same time as widely publicizing advice that all pregnant women required the combined flu vaccination, the CDC was busy organizing ten non-profit organizations, to sign a joint letter to urge obstetricians and gynecologists to continue to vaccinate their pregnant patients.

One of the organizations to sign the letter was The March of Dimes [3] who urged health care providers to recommend the flu vaccine to pregnant women and those who expect to become pregnant. They wrote the following recommendation to all medical professionals:

“Advice from a healthcare provider plays an important role in a pregnant and postpartum woman’s decision to get vaccinated against seasonal influenza. The American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP), American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), American College of Nurse-Midwives (ACNM), American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (The College), American Medical Association (AMA), American Nurses Association (ANA), American Pharmacists Association (APhA), Association of Women’s Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses (AWHONN), March of Dimes, and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are asking for your help in urging your pregnant and postpartum patients to get vaccinated against seasonal influenza.

The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommends that pregnant and postpartum women receive the seasonal influenza vaccine this year, even if they received 2009 H1N1 or seasonal influenza vaccine last year. Lack of awareness of the benefits of vaccination and concerns about vaccine safety are common barriers to influenza vaccination of pregnant and postpartum women.”

Representatives from all ten organizations signed the letter.

March of Dimes Document


On September 27, 2012, the Human and Environmental Toxicology Journal (HET) published Dr. Gary Goldman’s study that confirms NCOWs data, a 4,250 percent increase in the number of miscarriages and stillbirths reported to VAERS in the 2009/2010 flu season. [4] The study points out an astounding fact that no one saw until the publishing of the Goldman study in HET: the CDC had recommended the double-dosing of the pregnant population with the seasonal flu vaccine with mercury and the untested H1N1 vaccine with mercury.

In his abstract, Goldman said:

“The aim of this study was to compare the number of inactivated-influenza vaccine–related spontaneous abortion and stillbirth (SB) reports in the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) database during three consecutive flu seasons beginning 2008/2009 and assess the relative fetal death reports associated with the two-vaccine 2009/2010 season.”

The facts that Goldman exposed are extremely disturbing. He highlights the fact that the safety and effectiveness of the A-H1N1 had never been established in pregnant women and that the combination of two different influenza vaccines had never been tested on pregnant women at all.

Even more worrisome is the fact that the A-H1N1 vaccine inserts from the various manufacturers contained this warning:

“It is also not known whether these vaccines can cause fetal harm when administered to pregnant women or can affect reproduction capacity.

Dr. Goldman also pointed out that the developing fetus is indirectly exposed to mercury when thimerosal-containing vaccines are administered to a pregnant woman. He outlined a study written by A.R. Gasset, M. Itoi, Y. Ischii and R.M. Ramer who examined what happened after rabbits were vaccinated with thimerosal–containing radioactive mercury. Goldman stated that from one hour post-injection to six hours post-injection, the level of radioactive mercury in the blood dropped over 75 percent. Yet from two hours post-injection to six hours post-injection, there were significantly increased radioactivity levels in the fetal brain, liver, and kidney.

Dr. Goldman concluded that because the rates of miscarriage reported to the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) for the single flu vaccine were relatively low, health care providers developed a false sense of security that flu vaccines administered during pregnancy were safe. Goldman explained that just because a single vaccine has been tested and considered to be relatively safe, this does not mean that vaccinating pregnant women with two or more Thimerosal containing vaccines will be safe for them or their unborn babies. Overall, Goldman firmly believes that the VAERS grossly underestimates the true rates of miscarriage and other adverse events encountered in the US population. Remember, it is estimated that less than a tenth of true adverse reactions are reported to the VAERS with a one percent reporting rate for serious adverse events, including death, according to a study led by former FDA Commissioner Dr. David A. Kessler. [5]

As seen in the Goldman study, with the return to a single flu shot, the flu vaccine-related reports of fetal loss have returned to a significantly lower level compared to the high level of fetal loss reports in the two-dose 2009/2010 flu season. However, higher than background flu shot vaccine-related fetal losses continue to be reported to the VAERS.

Furthermore, the Goldman study recommends that the babies who survived the deadly double dose in utero be monitored:

“In addition, because of the order of magnitude increase in fetal-loss report rates, from 6.8 fetal loss reports per million pregnant women vaccinated in the single-dose 2008/2009 season to 77.8 in the two-dose 2009/2010 season, further long term studies are needed to assess adverse outcomes in the surviving children. Additional research concerning potential synergistic risk factors associated with the administration of Thimerosal-containing vaccines is warranted, and the exposure-effect association should be verified in further toxicological and case-control studies.” (emphasis added)

Aside from fetal deaths, the CDC initiative to increase uptake of vaccines in pregnant women continues to fuel the increases in the levels of neurodevelopmental, developmental, behavioral abnormalities, and chronic illness in the surviving children. Due to omitting reports of fetal deaths, the CDC enjoys success in increasing the uptake and number of vaccines in the pregnant population. The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) is now recommending not only the flu shot (with mercury) but also the Tdap vaccine.


The work of NCOW and Dr. Goldman has proven that potential lives are being destroyed before they are even old enough to draw their first breath. Developing fetuses who are fortunate enough to survive the onslaught of vaccinations now being recommended to pregnant women then need to play a form of Russian Roulette from the day they are born, because their caring parents followed the advice they were given by professionals who have been deliberately misguided.

Eileen Dannemann and her team have proven with their remarkable work that both public and professionals alike are being lied to and deceived by organizations put in place by the government to sanction our vaccination programs. In my opinion, this is genocide and the sooner people realize that all vaccines come with an element of risk and begin to research the dangers for themselves, the sooner these insane experiments will end.


We would like to thank Eileen Dannemann and Dr. Paul King for asking to report on their very important work.

Eileen Dannemann is the director of the National Coalition of Organized Women and the founder of the student vaccine liberation Army Dr. Gary Goldman and Dr. Paul G. King, vaccine consultant to NCOW, have provided to the public a most important study.

Bone Broth from Dr Mercola

Bone Broth

Simmering leftover bones over low heat for an entire day will create one of the most nutritious and healing foods there is. You can use this broth for soups, stews, or drink it straight. The "skin" that forms on the top is the best part. It contains valuable nutrients, such as sulfur, along with healthful fats, so just stir it back into the broth.

War on Health - Gary Null’s documentary exposing the FDA

Do you know what is in your food?

Do you know what is in your food? What about your friends and family, do they have any idea what they are eating? Genetically Modified Organisms, or GMOs, are everywhere.

“Currently commercialized GM crops in the U.S. include: soy (91 percent), cotton (71 percent), canola (88 percent), corn (85 percent), Hawaiian papaya (more than 50 percent), zucchini and yellow squash (small amount) and sugar beets (90 percent).”

These crops are in almost every processed food in America, and you have almost no way of knowing that they are there. The fact is, unless you are buying Organic, you are probably consuming GMOs. The FDA says they are safe; but there has never been long term independent safety tests to make sure.

“The American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM) reported that, “Several animal studies indicate serious health risks associated with GM food,” including infertility, immune problems, accelerated aging, faulty insulin regulation and changes in major organs and the gastrointestinal system.”

Yet most people don’t even know they are consuming GMOs. Please tell your friends, talk to your family, and discuss these things with your neighbors. It is up to us to spread the message.

More Data On Vitamin D

Dr. Reinhold Vieth is Professor in the Department of Nutritional Sciences, and the Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathology, University of Toronto. He is an internationally recognized expert on the clinical effectiveness of vitamin D as well as its pharmacology and safety. There is a great video of him giving a talk at the vitamin D Association Experts Forum in 2011 here:!

If you do not have 45 minutes to look at it, here are the main points I took away from his presentation:

1. Blood levels of 25(OH)D are 75-225 nmo/g are normal. These levels are safe and optimal because we were "designed" for this by the process of evolution.

2. There were NO reported incidents of toxicity until intake was more than 40,000 IU per day.

3. The upper level of recommended vitamin dosage are those that any member of the public can take without doctor's supervision and be guaranteed that they are not going to generate a negative reaction.

4. Once a year doses of vitamin D are destructive. Large fluctuations in Vitamin D levels are associated with increased risk of falls and fractures. In fact, the greater the fluctuation of your vitamin D level, the greater the risk for some cancers. So if you do not supplement all year, at least do so in winter.

5. The simple guideline to remember is that your body will make vitamin D from sunshine when your shadow is shorter than your height.

6. Vitamin D has a half life in the body of 60 days.

7. Dr. Vieth spoke on the unworkably low levels of Vitamin D being recommended by the IOM (Institute Of Medicine) as a reaction to a simplistic assessment of potential risks and an unwillingness to look at sophisticated models to identify causes of those risks.

“I am on a group from the American Geriatric Society which has a similar problem. You go to all the trouble reviewing the medicine and evidence, come up with advice, you put it out for review, out comes the IOM which something different, then doctors being driven by things that are set for a different purpose than patient care.”

More sustainable farming practices DO increase yields!

“On 22 acres, researchers planted three parallel plots: one replicating the conventional Midwestern farming cycle alternating corn and soybeans each year with a routine mix of chemicals; in the second, planting a three-year cycle that included oats and a red clover cover crop; the third was planted on a 4-year rotation that added alfalfa (a key livestock feed). The two longer rotations also integrated the use of manure, or livestock fertilizer.”

“The longer rotations produced better yields of both corn and soy, reduced the need for nitrogen fertilizer and herbicides by up to 88 percent, reduced the amounts of toxins in groundwater 200-fold and didn't reduce profits by a single cent.”

We Are Getting A Divorce

An old man in Miami calls up his son in New York and says, “Listen, your mother and I are getting divorced. Forty-five years of misery is enough.”

“Dad, what are you talking about?” the son screams.

“We can’t stand the sight of each other any longer,” he says. “I’m sick of her face, and I’m sick of talking about this, so call your sister in Chicago and tell her,” and he hangs up.

Now, the son is worried. So he calls up his sister. She says, “Like hell they’re getting divorced!” and calls her father immediately. “You’re not getting divorced! Don’t do another thing, the two of us are flying home tomorrow to talk about this. Until then, don’t call a lawyer, don’t file a paper, DO YOU HEAR ME?” and she hangs up.

The old man turns to his wife and says “Okay, they’re coming for Christmas and paying their own airfares.”

The difference Between Success And Failure

Change Is Uncomfortable

After reading this I got to thinking about what it takes to be successful. What I concluded is that successful people are prepared to do what most people are not prepared to do. They are much more willing to be uncomfortable than they are willing to fail.

Most successful people advise getting a coach. Many people have a personal trainer or join a gym. Some business people have a business coach. But even before you can afford to pay a coach who is a specialist in the area in which you want to excel, you have one. You! You know yourself better than any one else does. You know where you are choosing to do the comfortable over the one that will lead to greater success. What is that by the way? Make a note of it on a piece of paper now, before you read on.

Got a question for you. How much time each day do you spend preparing yourself to have the right attitude to succeed? Giving yourself a pep talk it used to be called. Then it was psyching yourself up.

Whatever label you give it, how long do you spend motivating yourself to overcome the obstacles, avoid the distractions and stay focused for the day? No time at all? A brief thought?

So how is that working for you? On a scale of 1-10, how is your motivation level? Do you always feel up, fully charged, ready to take on anything that stands between you and your goal?

No? Maybe it’s time to look at that operating basis and start to be a coach to yourself. Even if it is only for a few minutes a day.

9/11 FEMA videographer at Ground Zero goes public

As official videographer for the U.S. government, Kurt Sonnenfeld was detailed to Ground Zero on September 11, 2001, where he spent an entire month filming: “What I saw at certain moments and in certain places ... is very disturbing!” He never handed his 29 tapes over to the authorities and has been persecuted ever since. Kurt Sonnenfeld lives in exile in Argentina, where he wrote “El Perseguido” (Persecuted). His recently-published book tells the story of his unending nightmare and drives another nail into the coffin of the government’s account of the 9/11 events.

Dear Direct Response Letter Subscriber:

In most of the things I’ve done in my writing career, I’ve failed.

For example, I have written numerous short stories and submitted them to magazines that publish fiction.

I haven’t sold a single one. I could wallpaper our bathroom with the rejection slips.

I’ve made several significant false starts at a novel, but never could come up with a story idea I felt could sustain a novel-length work.

So ... no novel published.

I have sent queries for articles to magazines like my beloved New York Review of Books, but the only major consumer magazine to publish my work was Cosmopolitan.

(And I didn’t even write an original article for Cosmo; they reprinted a chapter from one of my career books.)

Similarly, I have never published a poem ... sold a screenplay ...or even gotten paid to write a greeting card. (My mother - a nonwriter - did write and get paid for several greeting cards. Can you believe it?)

In my youth I dreamed of being a newspaper reporter, but no newspaper would hire me, even though I sent resumes to 300 newspaper editors.

Yet despite ongoing, massive failure in a wide spectrum of the writing profession, I make a good living as a full-time freelance writer and am quite happy doing it.

The secret is that there are a couple of areas of writing where I have been at least reasonably successful.

The main ones are freelance copywriting and as a nonfiction book author, with 80 books published by mainstream publishing houses.

I have also had some success marketing information products on the Internet.

Just a few hits among the many misses - yet the few writing activities I succeed at have earned me literally millions of dollars over the decades.

My point - and I do have one - is that you don’t have to be successful at everything you try ... or even at most things you try ... to have a great career and a great life.

GB, a colleague, had wanted to write for the theater, but never had a play published or produced.

Now GB makes thousands of dollars a day teaching business writing to managers and support staff for corporate clients.

He paints - very good abstracts - as an avocation. GB will never earn a living as an artist. But he recently had a show at a local gallery.

When I was in college, I dreamed of writing the Great American Novel ... not the Great American Sales Letter.

But sales letters are what I write today, online and offline. It’s loads of fun for me -- and the pay is attractive.

If you haven’t hit it big in writing, Internet marketing, or whatever your area of interest is, could it be that you simply haven’t discovered your "sweet spot" yet - the one area to which you are naturally suited and are likely to thrive in?

My late colleague, GR, had little success in writing magazine and newspaper ads, though he was enthralled with advertising and wanted to write it.

But then GR got an assignment to write a radio commercial, and lightning struck!

He loved writing the radio spot, the client loved the copy, and he began a successful career as a freelance radio commercial writer that lasted for decades.

If you feel your career or business is stalled, try new things in different areas of your niche that you haven’t explored yet.

The more things you try - and in writing, I’ve tried a lot of them - the better your chances of hitting your sweet spot ... and finding success and happiness in your profession.

If at first you don’t succeed, try and try again.

Or to quote Winston Churchill: Never give up!
