who believes Trump will "end vaccines"??

Another messed up post, but there's no way I can edit it.  This is from Dr. Tim O'Shea's web site


Controlled opposition.  Know what that is, right?  Might be time to re-read [color=#0000ee]The Doors of Perception[/color] and remind yourself that the power of Edward L Bernays is still with us, growing stronger all the time.Corporate media isn’t taking any chances in this day when blogs can become as popular as syndicated news outlets.  When all we had was printed media, it was much easier to guarantee a homogeneous slant in all big city newspapers on any assigned news subject.
 Those days are gone in today’s online Wild West, where education, authority, accountability, intelligence, literacy, accurate research – none of these mean a thing.  Anybody can say anything online.  All that counts is popularity. 
 So.  The bottomless pockets can launch their own programs to defuse legitimate opposition.  They have untold funds to create sites that look like actual people opposing entrenched corporate doctrines .   But the postings on these sites are often so extreme, so tin hat, so illiterate, so ill-researched, so easily discredited ...  that most people don’t give them a second thought.   Problem is, then by association, people will discredit that entire point of view, never taking the time to search for reliable, documented sources.
 That’s Controlled Opposition.  Fake opposition – the writers pretend to really disagree with the mainstream view, but they’re so silly, that their side of the argument can’t possibly be tenable.  It’s deliberate – these sites are often invented and paid for by the very entities they pretend to be attacking. 
 It’s a beautiful thing.
 Perfect example this month.  George Severino, director of the HHS Office for Civil Rights, came out with this announcement:
                           =12px         “ =12pxLaw protecting religious freedom and conscience rights are just empty words on paper if they aren’t enforced.  No one should be forced to choose between helping sick people and living by one’s deepest moral or religious convictions, and the new division will help guarantee that victims of unlawful discrimination find justice.  For too long, governments big and small have treated conscience claims with hostility instead of protection, but change is coming and it begins here and now…”

Stirring sentiments, to be sure.  Who could argue with convictions that red, white, and blue?  But the bottomless pockets of vaccine industry misdirection saw a golden opportunity here to discredit the so-called anti-vaxxer camp.  Time for a little Controlled Opposition.
 So now we have this sudden rash of pseudo anti-vax websites pretending to oppose the draconian vaccine laws that now hold the country in thrall, laws ending state exemption regs that have been around for decades.  And they’re hailing Severino’s  announcement  like it’s the Gettysburg Address or The Sermon on the Mount.
 But all these sites don’t seem real, nor do the third-rate firebrands writing the lead stories. 
 Here’s a prime example:

           [color=#0000ee]Trump Lays Groundwork To Ban Mandatory Vaccinations Across U.S.[/color]
They start by quoting the above paragraph from Severino, and then begin making the most extravagant conclusions from it:
                    “With the establishment of the Conscience and Religious Freedom Division division on Thursday, Trump has laid the groundwork to dismantle each and every vaccine mandate across the country. Big Pharma’s chokehold on the nation’s health has been released.”
 Talk about drawing unwarranted conclusions.  (the repeat of “division” was not really a typo. That’s their level of composition.) 
 What they’re referring to of course is Trump’s discussion with Bobby Kennedy, a year ago, {See Jan 2017 Newsletter  }
 to establish a Commission that might take an objective look at the science behind vaccines.  It was just a discussion, always vague, no details,  with no follow up whatsoever for 2 years.  Not a word.  This is the follow up!  Or so these Controlled Oppositionists are inferring. 

The chokehold has been released??  In what universe?

They plod on:
                    “The Conscience and Religious Freedom Division gives many different groups a big tent under which to fight for our constitutional rights. Christians and libertarians, as well as freethinkers and people of other religious faiths, have a common interest in fighting against Big Pharma’s corrupt health establishment…”
 How can anybody say what it does or doesn’t do?  It doesn’t give anyone anything—it doesn’t even exist yet!  And if it’s really going to be an open forum, imagine the opportunity for the vaccine industry to invent some really classy Controlled Opposition, with which they could flood such a commission. 
 Perhaps the most hallucinatory nonsequitur in the article is this heading
                        “President Trump has created a new division within the Health and Human Services Office for Civil Rights, with the express purpose of banning mandatory vaccinations across the country, and ensuring citizens have a right to choose their own healthcare.”
 We leave the real world at the comma. Express purpose of banning mandatory vaccinations…?  Who said anything about that, ever? Where does it say that, anywhere?
They wrap up with a final exhaled smoke cloud: 
                       “President Trump has given us a tool to use against tyranny.”
 Believe me, as author of 15 editions of [color=#0000ee]Vaccination Is Not Immunization[/color], no one wishes that were true more than I.  We can certainly use any and all such tools that we can get.  But this isn’t one of them. No one knows what it is, or even if it will last more than a week.
 This same article then predictably refers to another blog, its virtual clone:  actually quoting its ridiculous article as a source: 
                   [color=#0000ee]    President Trump Drops NUCLEAR BOMB on Vaccine Mandates…[/color]
 in which they make this insupportable statement
                                “Trump has laid the groundwork to smash every single vaccine mandate as well as turn BIG PHARMA into little pharma.” Really?  When did he do that?  When did he say anything even remotely about that topic at all? 
 Seems unlikely, especially when a few days later the White House physician posted a 30 minute [color=#0000ee]YouTube report on Trump’s health[/color],   that listed 2 vaccines  Donald recently got, and a third flu shot likely.
 Does that really sound like someone leading a crusade to end vaccine tyranny?
 This is just an introduction into this week’s rash of ill-wrought antivax sites that lauded this non-event to the skies, most of them clutching at straws like a drowning man.  There are many more, each one equally unworthy of quoting from. Would that it were all true, and more.  But this dog just don’t hunt.
 ‘Unrealistic’ wouldn’t be my first choice of descriptors  here - they’re pretending that the trillion-dollar global drug industry is suddenly going to be reduced to a reasonably scientific level, just because some bottom-rung bureaucrat announced a new division in some peripheral new government office. 
 Get a grip, fellas.  Even if such a Commission would actually be set up and begin reviewing the science behind the last 50 years of vaccine mandates, calling them to account before  a board of world class immunologists wholly unconnected to the global vaccine monolith…. 
 Even if that Disney sequence were to take place, what effect would all that have on policymakers at CDC who actually set the Recommended Immunization Schedule for American children?  All the known and unknown levels of bureaucracy that intervene between these two offices—David and Goliath -  the ant and the elephant – pick your metaphor. 
 For years Wakefield, Blaylock, myself and others have been stacking up [color=#0000ee] the best scientific references[/color] – thousands of them - from floor to ceiling – the best science that proves beyond any doubt how vaccines are harmful to children, and do not necessarily promote immunity.  So how could any Commission possibly do any better, by stacking up thousands more?

Even if it existed. **************

Re: who believes Trump will "end vaccines"??

Well, according to this article from Tim Bolen, mandatory vaccines have been stopped everywhere in the USA except in California.  I thought CA was the only place they were mandatory in the first place??  I'm probably behind times again, who knows.  I think the people who write for the Bolen Report might be just a tad optimistic about our future in this instance.  But that's just me.  The stock market has dropped dramatically today and that will definitely have an influence of some kind, which remains to be seen, but it probably isn't a good sign.  I wonder what's on deck for the next big turn of events?
