L.G.L.R., and A.F. both sent this article along (and a thank you to both), and I had to sit up and take notice, because this one hits close to home, so to speak. Like many people my age, I was vaccinated as a child with the polio vaccine. In fact, it was the only vaccine my parents ever consented to allow me to take.
But that was not until after they had both done a little 'digging". At the time - the late fifties and early sixties - polio was still a killer if not a major crippler. Pictures of unfortunate people in iron lungs were still in the newspapers, and the disease was never far from our minds. My parents, of course, were the children of the depression era, and remembered the stories of President Franklin Roosevelt and his struggle with the disease. Say what one will about his policies (and I have a lot to say about them, and very little of it is good), one certainly cannot fault the man for waging a courageous struggle against the disease, including forcing himself to stand and walk, probably in a great deal of pain, and certainly with a great deal of effort, to give those speeches in front of Congress, or to meet on British battleships with Prime Minister Churchill. When it came to me, there were two choices of a polio vaccine then: the Salk vaccine (the first one out of the gate), and the Sabin vaccine.
The Salk vaccine actually caused vaccine-induced polio in a number of cases, and quickly became controversial, in part, because it was being pushed by the US government and state and local governments (sound familiar?). THe reason for the paralysis? The pharmaceutical company that had been the source for the vaccine had not adequately de-activated the virus in the vaccine, and hence, many children were injected with the real thing (sound familiar?).
The other alternative was the Sabin vaccine, administered orally in a sugar cube, and first extensively tested in Mexico and the Soviet Union. Because of the mess caused by the Salk vaccine, the Sabin vaccine became the vaccine of choice, including for my parents after consultation with their, and my, doctor.
I mention all this, because in the article L.G.L.R. and A.F. both sent me, polio vaccines are again in the news, and are again apparently causing some havoc:
There's a few details here worth noting:
This really should be one of the biggest scandals in public health, but it’s given little attention – mainly because of the high-profile nature of the people and organisations involved.
The United Nations has been forced to admit that a major international vaccine initiative is actually causing the outbreak of the very disease it was supposed to wipe-out.
While international organisations like the World Health Organization (WHO) will regular boast about supposedly ‘eradicating polio’ with vaccines, the opposite seems to be the case. Their decades-long campaign to eradicate polio is now killing scores of innocent young people living in poor countries.
Now it seems that health officials are beginning to admit that their plan to stop ‘wild’ polio is backfiring, as scores children are being paralyzed a deadly strain of the pathogen derived from a live vaccine – causing a virulent of polio to spread. (All emphases in the original)
A live virus in a polio vaccine... again? Shades of the Salk vaccine episode. One would think that since the 1950s we'd have learned how to kill a virus before putting it into a vaccine (c0vid-19 vaccine enthusiasts, take note!), but apparently we can't, at least, not with 100% efficiency.
But wait, there's more:
This latest pharma-induced pandemic has broken out in the African countries of Chad and Sudan, and the culprit has been identified: a vaccine-derived polio virus type 2. Officials now fear this new dangerous strain could soon ‘jump continents,’ causing further deadly outbreaks around the world.
Shocking as it sounds, this Big Pharma debacle is not new. After spending some $16 billion over 30 years to eradicate polio, international health bodies have ‘accidentally’ reintroduced the disease to in Pakistan, Afghanistan, and also Iran, as the central Asia region was hit by a virulent strain of polio spawned by the corporate pharmaceutical vaccine distributed there. Also, in 2019, the government of Ethiopia ordered the destruction of 57,000 vials of type 2 oral polio vaccine (mOPV2) following a similar outbreak of vaccine-induced polio.
It’s important to note that the oral polio vaccine being pushed on to the African population by the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI), a consortium which is supported and funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
All of this should be a cause for concern, especially with western governments and transnational pharmaceutical giant all rushing to roll-out their new Gates-funded experimental coronavirus vaccine for the global population. (Italicized emphasis added)
The Baal and Malicious Gates Foundation? You don't say! Would this be the same folks with unusual ties to some eugenicists in their background, and if that's the case, is the selection of African tests subjects, in this case, children of poor people in Chad and the Sudan, perhaps not coincidental? Sorry about the digression, they were just a few thoughts and questions that popped into my mind. But another thing just popped into my mind. Is this the same Baal and Malicious Gates that India banned due to the less-than-healthy-results of some vaccine trials there? Gee... I wonder...
The bottom line here, however, is that the vaccination-polio-eradication program has backfired, for the vaccine designed to eradicate it - which, let us note, is being orally administered in the pictures, and therefore appears to be some sort of update to the Sabin vaccine - is actually introducing more virulent strains into the population. And that in turn might mean that the entire population is once again at risk of the disease, perhaps even including those who, like me, received a vaccine against it as a child.
Gee, thanks alot, Baal, and Malicious.
And lest that misses the point, the article puts it so simple that even a noodnik busybody billionaire can understand it:
This latest revelation from Africa should prompt media and health advocates to ask hard questions about the efficacy and safety of the much-hyped COVID ‘miracle’ vaccine.
Yup. That pretty well says it for me.
See you on the flip side...
