America’s Vaccine Civil War: Will Negative News on Gardasil Turn the Tide in 2018?
Is the U.S. Media Finally Engaging in “Damage Control” Regarding the Dangerous Gardasil Vaccine?
Mainstream Media Censorship on Gardasil VaccineFor years now, the mainstream media has censored almost any negative information regarding vaccines in general, and the Gardasil vaccine in particular.
Gardasil, the HPV vaccine produced by Merck, is a huge money maker, and any negative press that documents lives being destroyed by the vaccine will obviously have a negative result on sales.
Robert F. Kennedy, Jr, has publicly stated that 70% of mainstream media news advertising revenues during non-election years is funded by pharmaceutical companies. (Source.)
So it is easy to understand the probable reason why the standard rules of investigative journalism are not utilized when reporting vaccine issues, particularly the Gardasil vaccine. Only positive news is allowed – not anything critical.
We saw this on full display at the end of 2013 when then popular daytime television host Katie Couric dared to produce a program regarding the “HPV Vaccine Controversy.”
Couric was very careful to make her own personal views known, stating that she was pro-vaccine and that her own daughters received the gardasil HPV vaccine.
But it didn’t matter. She was vilified and viciously attacked by the corporate mainstream media to even dare to suggest that there was a “controversy” surrounding the Gardasil vaccine. She interviewed one mother who claimed to have lost her teenage daughter after giving her the Gardasil vaccine.
It was a show that gave both sides of the debate, with the pro-vaccine side more heavily favored, apparently in an attempt to ward off criticisms.
It didn’t work. Couric was forced to issue an apology on her show the next week, and she also had to give Dr. Anne Schuchat, Assistant Surgeon General and Director of the CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, dressed in official military attire, air time to promote the standard CDC propaganda about how safe the Gardasil vaccine supposedly is.
Couric’s show was canceled for the next season, and some believe her career has never been the same since.
In 2015 the Toronto Star published what was probably one of the best investigative reports ever published in a corporate mainstream media publication about the Gardasil vaccine, but the editors were pressured to remove the article from their website. Health Impact News contacted the journalists who wrote the report, as well as their editor, and offered to publish it on the Health Impact News network, but they declined.
It is currently still available (for now) on the Internet Archive website here.
Official Press Release – “Action Comics #1000: 80 Years of Superman” Hardcover Book
LOST SIEGEL AND SHUSTER SUPERMAN STORY TO BE PUBLISHED IN NEW ACTION COMICS #1000: 80 YEARS OF SUPERMAN HARDCOVER BOOK
Special Collection of Superman Stories and Essays is Part of DC’s Star-Studded ACTION COMICS #1000 Celebration
Edited by Paul Levitz with a New Jim Lee Cover and an All-Star Talent Line-up Including Laura Siegel Larson, Jules Feiffer, Gene Luen Yang, Al Plastino, Otto Binder, Curt Swan, Marv Wolfman, John Byrne, Dick Giordano, Grant Morrison, Len Wein, Carmine Infantino and More!
A new hardcover book, ACTION COMICS #1000: 80 YEARS OF SUPERMAN, is being published by DC Entertainment as part of its celebration of the one-thousandth issue of ACTION COMICS – the longest continually published comic book of its kind in history, the series that introduced Superman to the world and the title that launched the superhero genre. The collection features a series of essays and iconic Superman stories edited by former DC Publisher Paul Levitz. Most notably, the book includes a never before published 12-page story from original Superman writer Jerry Siegel with art by the Joe Shuster Studio titled “Too Many Heroes.”
“The found Siegel and Shuster story is a true treasure with a fascinating backstory,” stated Levitz. “Back when DC did regular tours of the New York office, it was common for fans to get original art that would have been otherwise disposed of as a tour souvenir. As a young fan on a tour Marv Wolfman found this Superman story and kept it all these years. It’s incredible to think that Marv not only rescued this unpublished story, he then went on to become one of DC’s most prolific writers, and shared the story with DC to publish as part of this special new collection.”
Levitz continued, “It’s an honor to edit this collection of stories and essays that chronicle key moments and contributors to Superman’s epic 80 year run as one of the most iconic characters in all of pop culture. I’m particularly happy that Laura Siegel Larson’s tribute to her father and his legacy are part of the book.”
The 384-page hardcover book will cost $29.99 and hit store shelves on April 19. Highlights and key Superman stories in this collection include:
A new cover by legendary artist and DC Publisher Jim Lee

Hijrah, or jihad by emigration
A great reason to ban Islam in all Western countries.
Hijrah, or jihad by emigration, is, according to Islamic tradition…To emigrate in the cause of Allah – that is, to move to a new land in order to bring Islam there, is considered in Islam to be a highly meritorious act.
Approximately 104,460 asylum seekers arrived in Germany during the month of August, setting a new record. That makes 413,535 registered refugees and migrants coming to Germany in 2015 so far. The country expects a total of around 800,000 people to seek asylum in Germany this year. And that’s just Germany. The entire continent of Europe is being inundated with refugees at a rate unprecedented in world history. This is no longer just a “refugee crisis.” This is a hijrah.
Hijrah, or jihad by emigration, is, according to Islamic tradition, the migration or journey of Muhammad and his followers from Mecca to Yathrib, later renamed by him to Medina, in the year 622 CE. It was after the hijrah that Muhammad for the first time became not just a preacher of religious ideas, but a political and military leader. That was what occasioned his new “revelations” exhorting his followers to commit violence against unbelievers. Significantly, the Islamic calendar counts the hijrah, not Muhammad’s birth or the occasion of his first “revelation,” as the beginning of Islam, implying that Islam is not fully itself without a political and military component.
To emigrate in the cause of Allah – that is, to move to a new land in order to bring Islam there, is considered in Islam to be a highly meritorious act. “And whoever emigrates for the cause of Allah will find on the earth many locations and abundance,” says the Qur’an. “And whoever leaves his home as an emigrant to Allah and His Messenger and then death overtakes him, his reward has already become incumbent upon Allah. And Allah is ever Forgiving and Merciful.” (4:100) The exalted status of such emigrants led a British jihad group that won notoriety (and a shutdown by the government) a few years ago for celebrating 9/11 to call itself Al-Muhajiroun: The Emigrants.
The Military secretly tested chemicals on Americans
Wall Street Journal
Octor 22, 2001
SAN FRANCISCO – Fifty-one years ago, Edward J. Nevin checked into a San Francisco hospital, complaining of chills, fever and general malaise. Three weeks later, the 75-year-old retired pipe fitter was dead, the victim of what doctors said was an infection of the bacterium Serratia marcescens.
Decades later, Mr. Nevin’s family learned what they believe was the cause of the infection, linked at the time to the hospitalizations of 10 other patients. In Senate subcommittee hearings in 1977, the U.S. Army revealed that weeks before Mr. Nevin sickened and died, the Army had staged a mock biological attack on San Francisco, secretly spraying the city with Serratia and other agents thought to be harmless.
The goal: to see what might happen in a real germ-warfare attack. The experiment, which involved blasting a bacterial fog over the entire 49-square-mile city from a Navy vessel offshore, was recorded with clinical nonchalance: "It was noted that a successful BW [biological warfare] attack on this area can be launched from the sea, and that effective dosages can be produced over relatively large areas," the Army wrote in its 1951 classified report on the experiment.
Now, with anthrax in the mail and fear mounting of further biological attacks, researchers are again looking back at the only other time this country faced the perils of germ warfare – albeit self-inflicted. In fact, much of what the Pentagon knows about the effects of bacterial attacks on cities came from those secret tests conducted on San Francisco and other American cities from the 1940s through the 1960s, experts say.
"We learned a lot about how vulnerable we are to biological attack from those tests," says Leonard Cole, adjunct professor of political science at Rutgers University in New Jersey and author of several books on bioterrorism. "I’m sure that’s one reason crop dusters were grounded after Sept. 11: The military knows how easy it is to disperse organisms that can affect people over huge areas."
In other tests in the 1950s, Army researchers dispersed Serratia on Panama City, Fla., and Key West, Fla., with no known illnesses resulting. They also released fluorescent compounds over Minnesota and other Midwestern states to see how far they would spread in the atmosphere. The particles of zinc-cadmium-sulfide – now a known cancer-causing agent – were detected more than 1,000 miles away in New York state, the Army told the Senate hearings, though no illnesses were ever attributed to them as a result.
Another bacterium, Bacillus globigii, never shown to be harmful to people, was released in San Francisco, while still others were tested on unwitting residents in New York, Washington, D.C., and along the Pennsylvania Turnpike, among other places, according to Army reports released during the 1977 hearings.
In New York, military researchers in 1966 spread Bacillus subtilis variant Niger, also believed to be harmless, in the subway system by dropping lightbulbs filled with the bacteria onto tracks in stations in midtown Manhattan. The bacteria were carried for miles throughout the subway system, leading Army officials to conclude in a January 1968 report: "Similar covert attacks with a pathogenic [disease-causing] agent during peak traffic periods could be expected to expose large numbers of people to infection and subsequent illness or death."
The government admits...
For decades, Americans were told that Area 51 didn’t really exist and that the US government had no official interest in aliens or UFOs. Statements to the contrary, official-sounding people cautioned, were probably the musings of "conspiracy theorists".
The Pentagon has officially confirmed that there was, in fact, a US$22 million government program to collect and analyze “anomalous aerospace threats” – governmentspeak for UFOs.
The Race to Censor Internet
If we don’t fight now, conservatives will vanish from the internet
(Conservatives and anyone they don't like or anything they deem "hate speech" an unconstitutional label.)
How can you tell that internet censorship is really taking off? Easy. It’s becoming a business model.
Steven Brill is raising $6 million to launch News Guard. This new service will rate news sites on their trustworthiness from green to red. Forget politically unbiased algorithms. The ratings will be conducted by "qualified, accountable human beings" from teams of "40 to 60 journalists." Once upon a time, journalism meant original writing. Now it means deciding which original writing to censor.
"Can trust be monetized?" The Street’s article on News Guard asks. But it isn’t really trust that’s being monetized. It’s censorship. It’s doing the dirty work that Google and Facebook don’t want to do.
The Dems and their media allies have been pressuring Google and Facebook to do something about the "fake news" that they blame for Trump’s win. The big sites outsourced the censorship to media fact checkers. The message was, "Don’t blame us, now you’re in charge."
And The Nation That 'Cannot Live Without The Internet' The Most Is...
Have you ever thought about what life would be like without the internet?
Given the volume of time people spend immersed in their smartphones, iPads and laptops, an unconnected life is pretty hard to imagine these days. For the majority of millennials, the time before the world wide web is now nothing more than a distant memory, a memory that's been eviscerated by the ubiquity and life-changing impact of connected technology.
Interestingly, Statista's Niall McCarthy notes that it isn't just millennials who are losing touch with a world without smartphones, emails and social media.
Research from Ipsos has found that society in general just can't live without the internet.
18,180 people were surveyed across 23 countries, with more than two thirds of them saying they cannot imagine a life that isn’t prefixed by www dot.
While 73 percent of Americans said they cannot imagine an unnconnected life, the highest share was recorded in India at 82 percent.
