How To Win the Vaccine Credibility War

How To Win the Vaccine Credibility War

1. Take All the Credit for Success
Vaccine manufacturers and the medical industry have declared themselves fully responsible for the significant decline in mortality from infectious disease over the last century. When asked for evidence of vaccine effectiveness, vaccine proponents point to the decline of whooping cough, diphtheria, measles, mumps, polio and other “vaccine preventable” diseases. The fact that the mortality rates of these diseases declined up to 99 percent prior to the introduction of the vaccine is not considered relevant.

2. Tell a Good Story
The vaccine story is a great story! No question. “Vaccines are a miracle of modern medicine.” “Vaccines have saved millions of lives.” “The benefits of vaccination far outweigh the risks.” The problem with this story is it is not supported by clinical or biological evidence. But when you have a good story, you don’t need evidence.

3. All for One and One for All
The medical industry and the media refer to vaccines as if they are one uniform product. No differentiation is made between a vaccine produced by Merck versus a vaccine produced by GlaxoSmithKline. A vaccine for chicken pox is no different than a vaccine for measles. A vaccine given to a sixteen year old is no different than one for a newborn. When you question the safety and effectiveness of one vaccine, you question the safety and the effectiveness of all vaccines. Individual consideration is not permitted.

4. Under Report Adverse Effects
No one likes to hear about adverse effects. Besides, they happen to someone else’s children. While the medical industry claims to keep accurate data on the number of incidences of vaccine injury, there is no clear definition of vaccine injury and no mandatory requirement to report adverse events following vaccinations. It’s up to each individual health practitioner to self-report that what they did caused harm to their patient. It’s also important to keep any data on vaccine injuries hidden from the prying eyes of the public. Better yet, deny that vaccines cause injury. If you have to admit to vaccine injury, pick a good round number like “one in a million”.

5. Hear No Evil. See No Evil. Speak No Evil.
It’s important not to discuss any concerns about vaccine safety or effectiveness. Tell the mainstream media that providing balanced reporting on vaccines is irresponsible. Even when CDC scientists take whistleblower status, claiming fraud and the destruction of data, there is nothing worth reporting. Besides, your advertising revenues might be at risk if you report on vaccine injuries or government fraud.

6. Claim Consensus
Everyone knows vaccines are safe and effective. The science is settled. No long-term clinical trials are needed to substantiate these claims. It would be unethical to conduct clinical research with an unvaccinated population. Even discussing vaccine safety is irresponsible. Asking questions about vaccine effectiveness is anti-science. Everyone knows there is no vaccine for stupid people.

7. Let the Money Speak for Itself
Money is the best criteria to decide the outcome of research. Money should decide which studies get published. Money should decide what research will be done and what questions will be asked. Money should decide what editors allow on their programs and in their newspapers. Money should decide which politicians will be elected. Money should decide what is in “the greater good.” And who has more money than the pharmaceutical industry.

8. Everyone Must Believe
It’s not good enough that most people believe in the safety and effectiveness of vaccines. It’s not good enough that vaccines rates are 99 percent effective. Everyone must believe. Everyone must partake. Everyone must be vaccinated for the greater good. There is a theory called ‘herd immunity’ that means everyone must be vaccinated to be effective. Just getting vaccinated yourself is not enough protection. Mandate vaccines if people aren’t responsible enough to get vaccinated. We can’t have any unvaccinated children around to remind us of what a healthy immune system is like.

9. Keep Everyone Afraid
If everyone doesn’t get their required vaccines, killer diseases will return and get us all. We need to stop those “vaccine preventable diseases.” It’s the responsible thing to do. Anyone who doesn’t vaccinate is a danger to the community. There is no time to discuss the matter. Vaccine decisions are best made from a place of fear rather than thoughtful evaluation of the evidence. Do you want polio to come back?

10. Avoid Any Discussion
It’s best not to discuss the matter. It just confuses people. Everyone knows that vaccines are safe and effective. It’s like discussing whether the earth is round. The time for discussion is over. We don’t need to investigate this any further. The bottom line is—the more vaccines, the better. Terrorize any professional who does honest research and reports negative effects. “Wakefield” them.

“Any possible doubts, whether or not well founded, about the safety of the vaccine cannot be allowed to exist.”1

    I would suggest that anyone who doubts the possibility that medical science, in fact all categories of science, can’t be corrupt and conflicted, and haven’t been throughout it’s history, read: Betrayers of Truth – Fraud and Deceit in the Halls of Science by Bill Broad and Nicholas Wade. It’s an older book, published in 1983 but is a must read for those who still believe in Santa Claus.

    This situation is very much like GMOs a few years ago… It was hard to break through the effective propaganda from Monsanto and its stooges in science-media-government.

    The GMO industry is similar to the vaccine industry- a reductionist, failed technology based on a super-simplified (and wrong) ‘understanding’ of genetics. But the end goal is corporate profits at any cost, so by that metric it’s a ‘successful’ technology.

    Whereas the vaccine industry is a failed technology based on a reductionist, super-simplified ‘understanding’ of the immune system. Again, the end goal is profit at any cost for Pharma, and the technology is ‘successful’ in that respect.

    Both are houses of cards built on false ‘tobacco science,’ propaganda, and buying our political system, media, and science to enforce the narrative and hammer those who question it as ‘anti-science.’

    The big difference is GMOs are made by poison companies, and there’s no way really for poison companies to claim poisons aren’t poisonous. The medical industry on the other hand, ‘saves lives.’ But in the US, it is starting to be revealed to be a massive vampire sucking the blood of America through expensive, ineffective, toxic ‘care’ that causes more harm than good and kills hundreds of thousands of Americans a year. But it is EXTREMELY profitable for Pharma, doctors, hospitals, device manufacturers, and insurers.

    Still, vaccines are their shining, gold-plated last stand. They are the one thing they can point to and say ‘we save lives!’ etc. It’s really the last thing they have. And they are willing to fight to keep up the facade of the vaccine ‘miracle.’

    But like with the GMO fight a few years ago, the truth is steadily leaking through and more people are understanding and learning the truth every day. And once you know, you can’t un-know.

    Of course, we’re still fighting new iterations of poisons and GMOs and we’ll have to keep fighting new takes on the vaccine idea… As long as we have a greed-based corporate food system, and a greed-based corporate ‘health care’ system these things will be constant threat…

    Heloearth? Round earth?worship of the sun? Wheres the proof. Look it up. Really we don’t know its its ball shaped(helo) or flat(geoearth). By the way round is a flat circle. Not a ball. You can go around the earth even if flat. As it’s a circle. You can go around the earth even if ball shaped, you go around a line of the ball. That line makes a circle. Not a ball. Which do I believe, it’s all theory.we dont know or it wont be a debate.

    Ten points round it off nicely, but I’ll provide #11: Make vaccines a black-and-white issue. Frame the discussion as pro vs. anti, science vs. anti-science, life vs.death, smart vs. stupid, disease vs. health, and virtue vs. evil. Portray the issue as though there were no difference in each vaccine, each illness, each individual being vaccinated. Express no complexity and no nuance, as nuance leaves space for some – any! – form of non-compliance.

    Did you notice the helpful comment added at the end about the Department of Health and Human Services.? Here is the conclusion that they came to regarding the HPV va((ine on December 8, 2017 at the 104th meeting of the Advisory Commission on Childhood Vaccines: “ Asked whether the HPV va((ine contributed to the decline in cervical cancer , Dr. Shimabukuro stated that there were certainly confounding factors, making it difficult to settle on a definitive connection to the vaccine.” Yet in New York State the government wants to mandate this vaccine for all children born after 2009 , and will allow it to be given to 14 year olds without parental consent. Furthermore, the the religious exemption for va((ines has been removed in order to allow the state to push this through and the day after the governor signed the repeal into law ( which only passed by getting a nay-sayer to change his vote at the last minute) Merck rewarded the state with $48M for the set up of their ILUM Healthcare Business (read manufacturing plant) . HPV – “Help Pay for Vioxx”. The Unva((imated are NOT the Enemy- Corrupt politicians ARE.

    The earth isn’t round and vaccines aren’t safe 🙂
