Liam Scheff: Vaccination - The Religious Science
This stack is not really about polio, although it includes quite a bit about polio, it’s mainly in honour of Liam Scheff. I have finally discovered Liam and very glad that he is in my life now.
I first noticed his name in The Real Anthony Fauci:
In 2004, investigative journalist Liam Scheff chronicled Dr. Fauci’s secretive experiments on hundreds of HIV-positive foster children at Incarnation Children’s Center (ICC) in New York City and numerous sister facilities in New York and six other states between 1988 and 2002.11 Those experiments were the core of Dr. Fauci’s career-defining effort to develop a second generation of profitable AIDS drugs as an encore to AZT.
Scheff described how Dr. Fauci’s NIAID and his Big Pharma partners turned Black and Hispanic foster kids into lab rats, subjecting them to torture and abuse in a grim parade of unsupervised drug and vaccine studies…
Liam Scheff’s January 2004 article, “The House that AIDS Built,” ignited an outraged Internet controversy, prompting the New York Press to publish a follow-up article by Scheff, “Inside Incarnation.” Scheff’s detailed descriptions are worth reading if only to understand the sacrifices that Dr. Fauci demanded from his venturesome “volunteer” babies for “the greater good.”
Then I noticed Celia Farber mention Scheff:
I always used to tell the late Liam Scheff (one of the great investigative journalists of all time) he was an outstanding comedian.
Here is Liam:
So I bought his book, Official Stories.
What can I tell you, it’s one of the most important books I have ever read. As foundational and meta as The Read Anthony Fauci was for me, this book sits above that, and tells a much broader story, and tells it in a very different way.
As you know I’m interested in vaccination at the moment, especially it’s history, and as I was reading this chapter in Scheff’s book I saw the above Chris Rock clip. He’s certainly right about doctors and drugs, and everything else, but he’s wrong about the “curing” of polio. He was also wrong, and unfortunately failed, when it came to the covid vaccines.
Yes I’m going to start calling them vaccines, read this that I am grateful a reader pointed out to me. I had made a language error, and now I am self-correcting:
If the industry chose that word [vaccine] to fool people into accepting it, then let them have it. Given the death and failure resulting from these mRNA products, the word “vaccine” will become synonymous with “poison.” People will come to understand the genocide that occurred and is occurring as a result of this vaccine.
The COVID-19 vaccine is a giant turd and the industry can eat it whole. The word “vaccine” will cause all people to question all vaccines. They wanted to call it that. They can live and die on that turd hill.
I don’t know what I would have thought if I had read this chapter of Liam’s book on vaccination in 2019. My brain could not have absorbed it. There is no way that I could have accepted any of it to be true. But having read as much as I have I now know it’s all true.
If someone was curious, and just a little awake, the material in this chapter has a chance of getting in and smashing a broad collection of narratives and “official stories” living in one’s head. It is a stunning piece of work backed by, I think, least 10 years of study and research by Scheff.
Here is the complete chapter with comments, and thanks to Liam Scheff. RIP Liam.
Vaccination - The Religious Science
The Official Story:
Vaccination, injecting viruses into people, especially small children, prevents future infection and is therefore good for you. It began with Edward Jenner, who developed a vaccine against smallpox, and Louis Pasteur, who devised germ theory. Jonas Salk's vaccine stopped Polio in the 1950s. Today, we use vaccines to fight latent “slow viruses” like HPV which, officials say, can cause cancer in women, eventually.
The Lone Gunman:
Viruses. But this time there's a counter-attack and it's equally powerful - the syringe full of specially-prepared viruses.
The Magic Bullet:
Whatever is in those syringes; it stopped polio, it'll stop HPV and the bird, pig and every other flu too.
Vaccination comes from the word “vacca.” We could call it cow-injection, to be true to history, because, and we're never really told this, but the vaccine that made it all famous - smallpox - came from the sores on the underbellies and legs of cows and horses. Pus and blood were scraped off, put on the ends of small, sharp pronged forks or lancets and jabbed into people’s arms. Yes, “vacca” means “cow.” Does that surprise you? Do we generally think that animal blood and pus is good thing to put into our bodies? Probably not, but we'll get into that in a minute.
Vaccines are regarded as a nearly magical process, like a totem or a crucible, a station of the cross in the Western world; it has replaced baptism as a holy rite. Those who are opposed are mistrusted and feared, almost as witches; certainly as troubled heretics. But no one ever asks the question:
What Is In A Vaccine?
Vaccines are not conjured at Hogwarts by honest wizards. Willy Wonka doesn't brew them in his chocolate factory. They are not magical and there is a reason, or many, why some people oppose them so strongly. Vaccines are toxic, by their very nature.
The liquid in the syringe is filled with very small pieces of…well, a lot of things. These materials come from laboratory dishes where putative viruses are grown. But nothing biological can be grown, except in a “medium” or substrate. That is, it takes living tissue to grow living microscopic entities. So, what tissues are vaccines grown in, or really, culled from?
The first substrates were a variety of animal body parts, including spines and brains; rabbits were often used. Sometimes it was pus and blood from a sick animal. Then it was monkey kidneys and testicles; that's what the putative polio virus was grown in. Of course, monkey cells contain monkey proteins, viruses, bacteria, mycoplasmas and toxins. It is not possible to filter out one microscopic particle from a sea of similarly-sized or smaller particles. These particles, proteins, viruses and cellular debris have been and are being injected into millions of people, in the name of stopping polio - and every other disease for which there is a vaccine.
Hamster ovaries, washed sheep blood, dog kidney cells - and here's a favorite with the Christian crowd – aborted human fetal tissue; these are newer substrates. These cells are cultured, fed, stimulated and made to replicate so as to produce…well, that's what this chapter is about and we're almost there.
In addition to the living tissue, vaccines have added to them a series of metals and preservatives, as well as chemical agents sent to inflame and agitate your cells. Mercury is one of the longest-used metals in vaccines. Formaldehyde has made it into countless batches. Formaldehyde is used to embalm dead people - to keep them from rotting. Is that good for children? No, it's a toxic poison. But there it goes, into the blood.
Squalene is one of the most famous adjuvants for its starring role in Gulf War Illness. Its job is to agitate your muscles, blood vessels, cells and tissue into an inflamed state. Vaccine manufacturers actively seek this inflammatory response. They feel it helps their vaccine work. But it can also bring on real illness: pain, nausea, cramps, fainting, tremors, seizures and a long list of neurological responses. Sometimes vaccines cause death; sometimes instantly. Yes, that has happened too.
Ok, I’m going to need to spend some time understanding Squalene. How many soldiers have had this shit injected into them…?
Vaccine proponents will tell you that the 30,000 adverse events reported annually on the government's VAERS self reporting system for vaccine side effects are worth it. It doesn't seem to bother them that even the government agrees that VAERS captures about 1% of the total number of toxic events due to vaccination. It's like a religion. There are the vaccine true-believers - and their generally ridiculed opponents.
The Doctor’s Office
If you can believe it, I was agnostic for a long time about vaccines. Understanding vaccination came late in my studies. I didn't like them, but I wasn't sure. Maybe they helped. After all, there had been polio and now there isn't. Smallpox has gone away. I couldn’t discount vaccination entirely.
I was three or four years old. I was in a doctor's office. I saw a needle coming for me - it was going to be put into me. INTO. I knew with all my being that this was insane. Wrong. WRONG. Not going to happen. Large hands held my small limbs and forced the needle and fluid into me, sending a hot swelling pressure into my arm.
“That's not so bad,” they said. “That's a big boy.”
I had a lot of strep throats as a kid. I had a number of very bad fevers. I felt awful, a lot. The next time I went, I remember being older by a few years. I held still; I looked away; I held my breath. “That's a brave young man,” they said. I continued to have a lot of flus and strep. But I had a terrible diet.
I stopped getting stuck with needles in my…I can't quite recall. Early teens? After childhood, I avoided doctors and all medical procedures. Maybe it's that I come from a family of doctors. It turns you off to it. On the inside of a group of medical men they'll tell you, “Oh, it's just a flu, tough it out.” So you do. Decades on, I don’t get sick the way I used to, but my diet is entirely different. I also haven’t been injected with anything for decades.
So I was agnostic. I did not know. I had to read and study, starting with polio 6 or 7 years ago, then HPV and then reaching back to the beginning, Pasteur and Jenner. What I learned was a hidden history. What I can do for you is to share it.
Vaccination, The Other History
People have always gotten sick and people have always died. That seems to be part of the deal here on Earth, for as long as anyone can remember. In order to deal with this reality, some ancient cultures, including the Chinese and Indian, devised complex medical systems involving categorization of energy types, effects of food and herbs and interaction among the organ systems. They had great success with them for thousands of years.
One method of disease prevention was to take pus from people and animals who had the “pox” or pustule-forming diseases, remove it from the pustules and dry it in the sun. (Sunlight and fresh air - the ultimate disinfectants.) That dried material would then be crumbled or ground into a powder and blown (whoosh!) up your nose and sinuses, if you’d never had the disease and especially if you were young. By this method of introducing dried, sterilized powder from a sick creature into the nasal passages, the recipient would receive a benign exposure to an otherwise toxic substance. Some cultures would prick your skin with this dried, sterilized substance.
Let's make a check here: breathing something into your nasal passage is very different than opening a wound in your flesh and pouring in the dripping wet pus and blood drawn from the sick animal. And pricking skin with dried, sterile material is different than injecting diseased animal remains deep into your muscle. Without reading another word, you can begin to understand the problem with the Western system of vaccination. But you paid the ticket; let's take the ride.
In the 1800s a French chemist named Louis Pasteur claimed invention of the “germ theory.” He argued that there are microscopic entities that we do not see, which are responsible, each to each, for a particular disease. But Pasteur didn't invent the concept of germs or microscopic entities. He lifted most of the research from a colleague name Antoine Béchamp. It was Antoine who first identified the role of microscopic particles in fermentation. He and his supporters made a fuss, but Louis' idea had something Antoine's did not: it was far more frightening and economically rewarding for the kings and the new priests - the scientists.
In 1885, Louis claimed to protect a boy from rabies. The boy, 9-year-old Joseph Meister, had been bitten many times by a dog. Louis injected - or really pricked his skin - with a weakened strain of what he believed contained the microbial cause of rabies from a mixture of animal material that he had let weaken and age. He did this over two weeks. The boy lived and didn't get the disease. Of course, not everyone bitten by a dog, even a rabid one, gets rabies.
But it's a strange proof because, by vaccine theory, it takes time to produce antibodies against an illness. The boy didn't have time to become “immune” after being bitten, which seems to indicate that he was already immune or hadn't been infected. Nevertheless, it was a proclaimed a great success and Louis' star began to rise. His claims impressed the Emperor of France, and soon he had government support for his work.
Louis' method was to inject samples of saliva and blood through a line of animals, mostly rabbits. He would then extract some material or kill the animal and dry and grind its spinal cord which would later be reconstituted for the injection. This method was closer to the ancient – letting material age and become non-toxic - than what we do now. It also relied more on letting a toxic fluid or tissue age and lose potency, than in finding any particular particle. He was also quick to destroy animals who got the diseases he claimed to be preventing - in other words, by excluding certain data, he got the results he wanted. This is called “confirmatory bias” in the sciences. Psychologists call it “self-deception.” Normal people just call it “bullshitting.”
But for his publicized success, he was granted an institute, which stands to this day - the Institut Pasteur, which has given us such luminaries as Luc Montagnier (who we'll meet next chapter). Although Béchamp's research was defended by critics and biographers, it was somehow less appealing to the powers-that-be, for reasons we'll discover.
At the same time that Louis was passing spit, blood and spine between rabbits and dogs, Robert Koch, a biologist from Prussia (which became Germany), described the appropriate method for purifying a virus. He displayed his German heritage by being extremely organized and disciplined in his method, far more so than his French rival, Louis. He continued the display by openly ridiculing Pasteur for his sloppiness, deriding him for taking snot from dogs, “As though that had any medical value!” and explaining that there was a proper method for claiming that you have a pure virus or microbe - which was his, naturally.
He deﬁned a set of four strict postulates, which, again, in German tradition, became the academic standard for “purifying viruses” (at least, in theory. In practice, virologists abandoned Koch as soon as they could. He was just too much work).
But in his notes, he admitted that he failed to meet his own standards, because despite being extraordinarily disciplined, he had missed the entire point. And therefore frankly should have abandoned the theory. But didn't (another German tradition).
The model that Koch and Pasteur put forward was straightforward - and is the conventional wisdom today: “It is the germ that causes disease. Kill the germ, stop the disease.”
Antoine and his colleague Claude Bernard argued the opposite: “No - It is the terrain. We all are exposed to the same germs all the time, but very few of us are made ill. It is the body's internal environment that expresses disease or health. It's not these tiny life-forms that each cause a distinct disease. Rather, some microorganisms can feed on a body in a diseased state - one that is severely deregulated, starved, intoxicated or in some way imbalanced.”
If you think about it for a moment, you'll come to the realization that the losers in this public relations battle were correct. We are surrounded by germs all the time. Most of us are usually healthy, if we have clean and plentiful food and water. The major epidemics of recent centuries have occurred in periods of terrible public sanitation and been reversed by improving sanitation. As we shall discover.
But here we are, more than a century later, slaves to germ theory. Why? The short answer is, you can't sue a virus. (We’ll come back to that in minute.)
Louis Pasteur's work centered on animals; dogs, rabbits and sheep. He opened the skulls of dogs, cut out a piece of brain and put in a forkful of rabid dog's brain, to see what would happen. He developed a “system” of grotesque, Frankenstein-like procedures: intracranial injections, opening animals' bodies and inserting foreign blood, tissue, saliva and pus in what can only be described as the surgical torture of animals. This wasn't an exceptional practice in his laboratory, it was his primary method. But it shouldn't surprise anyone that an animal who has a diseased piece of ﬂesh stuck into its head or veins doesn't feel so well - and quickly.
Pasteur himself was a chemist, not a medical doctor. He didn't deal with people or patients, but with elements and lab equipment. He was in his 50s when he began chasing microbes. He was not a well man. He'd had a bout of a crippling illness six years before he started chasing his “cures” for animal diseases, which left him partially paralyzed and weakened - maybe not the ideal candidate to develop the basis for the future of public health, but there he was.
Today Pasteur is credited with stopping anthrax and rabies in sheep and dogs by injection, but the historical literature is argumentative. Robert Koch himself ridiculed Pasteur's anthrax vaccine as scientiﬁcally invalid. It was recorded that ﬂocks were lost all over Europe where the vaccine was used. One Russian ﬂock lost 3700 out of the 4500 sheep that had been injected. Hungary outlawed the vaccine; Italian researchers felt it was of no value. And for his other success - rabies - a peer of Pasteur's, looking at his losses of animals, said that Louis didn't cure rabies, but rather, “he gives it.”
Whatever his failures, Louis Pasteur did invent a method for getting out of a jam that is used to this day, as we'll see later in the chapter. We’ll call it the “15-day rule.” Here's how it was written in 1926 in “These Cults” by Annie Riley Hale:
“The National Anti-Vivisection Society of England collected from the oﬃcial returns of Paster Institutes a list of 1,220 deaths after treatment between 1885 and 1901. Concerning these ﬁgures, Dr. George Wilson says: ‘Pasteur carefully screened his statistics, after some untoward deaths occurred during and immediately after treatment, by ruling that all deaths which occurred either during treatment or within 15 days of the last injection - should be excluded from the statistical returns. Because of this extraordinary ruling, the death rates in all Pasteur Institutes were kept at a low ﬁgure.’”
According to Louis, “Anything dead in within two weeks isn’t my fault.” This is not information we're given in school, because it describes the same struggle we're in today. The medical establishment makes the rules and massages the numbers. But what about vaccination? Does it help or hurt? I think I can make a good case for the problem, using nothing but common sense.
This 2-week trick was used during covid vaccination. Any adverse reactions within two-weeks of injection were not counted as you were only considered vaccinated two-weeks after injection. Thus, burying huge amounts of vaccine injury within the “unvaccinated” cohort. If you died 13 days after vaccination, it was counted as an unvaccinated death. Their tricks are very old and very effective.
I am writing this in New York City, which is ﬁlthy. People living here breathe the air everyday. The wind whips over those perennial symbols of the city: piles of garbage, polluted rivers, sidewalks covered with gum, spit, pee and poop. The vapors blow into peoples eyes, noses, mouths and lungs. And while it does not make them particularly well, it also does not kill them with fevers and pustules in short weeks or days. Which tells you something about the human body and the barriers that the lungs and the digestive system provide to the often disgusting environment.
But what if I took a scraping from any stretch of ground, being sure to not miss whatever fresh urine, dog poop, trash, gum, cigarettes and saliva I found, then immersed this in liquid? How lovely do you think you would feel after being injected with just the ﬂuid that this “sample” was soaked in? You'd probably have 18 diseases, some pretty deadly.
What I am describing here is the principle of Western vaccination. We pierce the skin and pass into the recipient not just toxins - but toxins that have been passed between animals and allowed to fester and foment even more gloriously noxious characteristics than they originally possessed. But for reasons that only a chemist suﬀering his own paralysis can describe, these practices took root. We'll see them again as vaccination moves into the 20th Century. Onward we march.
The other early victory for vaccines was smallpox, which was beaten back by Edward Jenner and his variety of inoculation, just preceding Louis P’s dog-and- rabbit experiments. Let’s scratch the surface.
In May, 1796, Edward Jenner, country doctor, took pus and blood scrapings from cows and horses with pustules (“pox’) and put it into his patients at the end of a lancet with which he created a bloody wound on their arm and a disﬁguring scar. He claimed it protected them from human pox (“smallpox”). He described vaccination as “variolation with fresh lymph from a calf,” but in the small print version, “fresh lymph” was pus from one or several infected animals.
His ﬁrst patient, 8-year old James Phipps, took the lancing and did not get smallpox. Jenner oﬀered this as his great success. “Vaccination” (“vacca,” cow) took hold. Smallpox, however, was not eradicated. It is recorded that pox and leprosy rates increased in vaccinated groups, as did amputations in the arms of military personnel who were mandated to receive the medical wound.
Smallpox that occurred after the lancing was called “spurious” smallpox, as though it was a special brand that resisted vaccination - which didn’t make a diﬀerence to the people who died of it.
By 1800, Edward's pus-and-blood process had traveled to the United States, via Harvard University, and it was spreading across the world. Europe embraced the process, but saw an increase of cases. More “spurious” smallpox was recorded. By 1839, as vaccination became an established practice, England experienced a true epidemic; over 22,000 people died.
William White, author of “The Story of a Great Delusion” (1885) pointed out that smallpox was already on the decline when the vaccine sharpshooters entered the ﬁeld and that the number of cases increased after vaccination. He noted that Jenner's original promise of, “You'll never get smallpox again,” was whittled to, “You'd have to be crazy to think you'll never get smallpox again!”
Here's the original from Edward Jenner, after people got smallpox post-vaccination: “There must have been some mistake about the vaccination; for it is incredible that any one can be properly vaccinated and have smallpox: the human frame, when once it has felt the inﬂuence of genuine cowpox, is never afterwards, at any period of its existence, assailable by smallpox.”
Then, after some of his own patients died, he said, “I never pretended that vaccination was more than equivalent to an attack of smallpox and smallpox after smallpox is far from being a rare phenomenon; indeed, there are hundreds of cases on record, and inquiry is continually bringing fresh ones to light.”
Given even more calamity and death, he wrote, “Is it possible that anyone can be so absurd as to argue on the impossibility of smallpox after vaccination!”
Here's another bit of history. In 1927, a vaccine critic, Lily Loat, wrote that the epidemic killed 44,000 people in England, when almost everyone had been vaccinated:
“97½ per cent of the people over two and under ﬁfty had either had smallpox or been vaccinated, as was stated by Sir John Simon, chief medical oﬃcer to the Privy Council, in his evidence before the select committee which in 1871 inquired into the vaccination act of 1867.”
In other words, this epidemic was being spread like a very rotten cream cheese on a very human bagel. And the doctors were doing the spreading. (I know it's a disgusting analogy. But come on, pus and blood? And they expected people to stay healthy?)
In response to the vaccine epidemic, anti-vaccination leagues popped up all over England to ﬁght what they called “blood poisoning” - an accurate term, I think. A town called Leicester (said as “Lester”) made a decision to ban the vaccine. This working-class city defeated smallpox another way.
The city built sewers, separating, as my grandfather said, “what runs downhill from what comes up,” that is, the clean water from the ﬁlthy waste. In case of illness, clean food and water were provided and Illness was followed by quarantine and disinfection. The result, while England was having an epidemic aﬀecting 17% of the citizens, the city of Leicester all but got rid of smallpox, by getting rid of vaccination and separating waste.
An oﬃcial government record from the early 1900s shows a timeline of vaccination in the town from the mid- 1800s. As more people were vaccinated, more people died of smallpox. The city lost 2,000 people in their year of highest vaccination. But when vaccination went away, so did the plague. It’s a thing to see; you can look it up in the chapter notes.
Even the mainstream was telling a bit of truth at the time. In 1871, the Lancet reported “that more than 122,000 vaccinated persons have suﬀered from smallpox.” To their credit, the editorial authors wrote, “This is an alarming state of things. Can we greatly wonder that the opponents of vaccination should point to such statistics as an evidence of the failure of the system? It is necessary to speak plainly on this matter.”
Yeah, well. You can say a lot in an editorial that never makes it to the policy desk. But it's a hell of a thing to realize that medicine has not corrected its failures for 140 years. It's still experts versus citizens.
Here are a couple more from the literature: in the late 1800s, after a few children died from vaccination in Australia, the government abolished mandatory vaccination and smallpox dwindled to 3 cases over 15 years. But in Japan, where multiple vaccination and re-vaccination were mandatory, there were over 165,000 cases and just under 29,000 deaths.
William White noted that smallpox was long understood to be a disease of poor sanitation and that it was on the decline in England before vaccination. Vaccination took credit for its decline - but not for the epidemic that followed. Somehow that story, like Louis Pasteur’s “15-day rule,” managed to convince the syphilitic heads of state of its value. Perhaps the powers-that-be saw it as another way to monitor and control the population, or they were simply impressed by academic credentials.
As the agricultural Europe and America turned industrial and urban, new diseases emerged, with wholly diﬀerent causes. And a new strain of virus hunters was born.
Polio - Spray, Spray, Spray
The industrial revolution brought a mechanization of agriculture to the growing U.S. population. More food was needed for the growing cities. People were living in tighter quarters; food was brought in by rail and cart.
And to protect and preserve food and textile crops, grown in larger and larger mono-cropped ﬁelds, they were sprayed with toxic compounds like “Paris Green.”
Paris Green was the prominent agricultural product in the late 1800s into the 1900s. It was used to kill insects and bacteria. It was literally green, from the copper that formed part of its composition. It was made of copper and arsenic. Some versions swapped lead for copper, keeping the arsenic.
A note of interest for those of us not raised in the 1800s - lead, if ingested, can kill you. So can copper. And arsenic - well, that's mostly what it was for. “Arsenic and Old Lace” was a comedy about murder, after all.
We like to blame invisible bugs for illness and ignore pollution. But the historical record tells us that from the 1700s to the 1970s (to today, in pill form), toxic, industrial poisoning was the norm: paralysis, illness and death were a result of industry.
The cases piled up in the 1700s and 1800s - lung problems caused by textile mills; scrotal cancer from charcoal exposure; mercury poisonings from felting; “phossy jaw,” a kind of paralysis from match-making; major nerve damage akin to polio or multiple sclerosis caused by arsenic-contaminated bread and wine; food poisoning from lead in canned food.
In 1900, Manchester, England was poisoned by beer. The sugar used to make it was contaminated with arsenic. An epidemic of nerve problems and shingles resulted. Cancer rates increased wherever industry grew, in the U.S. and India, chemicals used in the dye industry caused bladder cancers. In the U.K., shale oil used in industry caused scrotal cancers.
WW1 saw the mass-scale use of chemicals for warfare. Chlorine, phosphorus and mustard gas were sprayed on soldiers, civilians, farms and battleﬁelds and killed over a million people. But these chemicals would continue to be used in agriculture, industry and medicine.
The 20th Century brought us asbestos, which caused lung disease and cancers worldwide. The camera came into vogue, and ﬁlm was both manufactured and disposed of creating a toxic landslide. Disposing of ﬁlm by burning releases cyanide, nitrogen dioxide and carbon monoxide; in one incident in Ohio, over 120 people died in two months.
Prohibition, 1930s: illegal liquor brewed with a toxic chemical caused major paralysis in the hands and feet of those exposed. The neurotoxic agent caused hands and feet, arms and legs to drag and move unresponsively. The damage was long-lasting and could be permanent or fatal. Patients who died did so because their lungs became paralyzed, just like polio patients who had to be put in a breathing device - an iron lung. Autopsies showed the same or similar lesions on the spinal cord. But it was caused by the chemical in the booze, not a virus (somebody go tell Bill Gates). The drink was called “Ginger Jake,” and we even got a few songs out of it - “Jake Walk Papa” and the “Jake Leg Blues.” Not favorites of the people who couldn't walk anymore, but, you know.
Can we see a pattern? There was no shortage of paralysis caused by industry in the 19th and early 20th Centuries. So what happened in the 1940s to bring polio to epidemic levels?
We Do it for the Children
Polio was called the “great crippler.” It was terrifying to mothers who feared for their children's lives and loomed over towns and cities in the 1940s and '50s. It was perverse
- it appeared in industrialized nations, but it left poor people alone. George Carlin even made a joke about it. He grew up poor. He and his friends “swam in the raw sewage” of the East River. “It gave us immune systems,” he said. “Unlike you rich pussies!” He was joking, but what if he was half right? What were the mothers of middle-class children doing that the poor weren't?
It didn't act like a plague. It appeared in summer. Adults never got it from children. People didn't “pass” it. It came out of nowhere and exploded in clusters. Whole schools would be taken down by a ﬂash of profound muscular weakness, leaving some paralyzed and killing a few. Industrial history had demonstrated that neurological and paralytic Illnesses tended to act just this way - to explode, violently, in clusters.
But among academic scientists, there was no interest in toxins. The going concern in medicine was to nail down tiny particles. Pollution was not on the agenda. Instead, the focus went to something invisible that could perhaps be ﬁltered from blood. Something never seen, but suspected to be there. These invisibles would be blamed for all illness. And vaccines would be invented to stop them. “Just as Pasteur and Jenner had done,” went the rallying cry.
But what was the real motivation, besides the fascination of some Ph.D.s with microscopes?
Ask the question: who funds university research? Who hires university researchers? The answer is the same: chemical, oil and pharmaceutical companies. And as my friend Janine Roberts (author of the very ﬁne book “Fear of the Invisible”) says, “You can't sue a virus.” That is, you can sue industry. If industry doesn't want to be blamed for causing most of the ailments of the modern age, they have in their possession a ready scapegoat. A virus. Which they pay to discover and to develop vaccines for. And then you pay to be protected. But was the virus ever to blame? Was it ever really there? Back to history.
In 1909, Drs. Karl Landsteiner and Irwin Popper, hot on the trail of a “ﬁlterable virus” to blame for it all, decided to grind up some human remains and experiment with them. They got a spine and brain from a nine-year-old patient who died after becoming paralyzed. They weren’t interested in researching environmental exposures; they were virus- hunting.
They injected ounces of this ground cellular mash into monkeys; into their stomachs and then, directly into their skulls and brains. Crack, squish, plunge…ouch. They managed to paralyze one monkey and kill another. By this method, they claimed to have found the “cause of polio.”
We're back in the land of Louis Pasteur, cutting dogs into pieces, opening their heads and putting in diseased material. It doesn't seem to have occurred to these geniuses that if you grind up any material at all from a person, plant or thing, living or deceased, and inject ounces of it into a living creature's stomach, you will without a doubt make it very sick and possibly kill it, depending on the dose.
And what will pumping a large syringe or three of ﬂuid or ground solids through the skull and into the ﬂeshy brain do? Besides death, I mean? Is paralysis on that list? Yeah, probably. Near the top. Just under, “For some reason, the subject became suddenly deceased.” Apparently nobody mentioned it to Landsteiner or Popper. Because to this day, this is considered proof that Polio is caused by a ﬁlterable virus.
Back in the real world, a few sane doctors, like Ralph Scobey and Morton Biskind, were arguing that pesticides were responsible for the “summer plague,” as it was called, for appearing when children were eating chemicals sprayed onto orchard fruit and playing downstream from sprayed cotton ﬁelds and mills.
Both Scobey and Biskind prepared treatises to be presented to the U.S. Congress (and published in medical journals) in 1951 and '52.
Ralph Scobey wrote a beautiful piece of research, called, “The Poison Cause of Poliomyelitis And Obstructions To Its Investigation,” in which he highlighted a recorded history of polio. Poliomyelitis, he says, has had many diﬀerent names in diﬀerent locations - paralysis, palsies and apoplexy. It's a problem of chemical exposure. It's been around since the time of Hippocrates and it reaches to the modern era.
Throughout history, all over Europe, workers, scientists and artisans exposed to the fumes of metals and chemicals developed paralysis; sometimes passing, sometimes fatal. The chemicals to blame: mercury, phosphorous, lead and arsenic. You could be exposed to a poison, and still become paralyzed a week later.
In an lab experiment, a dog was paralyzed by lead poisoning. The degeneration of the spinal cord was identical to “polio-myelitis.” (Do dogs get the polio virus? No, but they can be poisoned.) In another animal-torture study, a Russian scientist determined that nerve damage and severe poliomyelitis occurred in animals who were fed arsenic, even within a few hours of eating it.
During a polio epidemic in Australia, a researcher noticed that a fertilizer containing phosphorous - a neurotoxin - had been used widely that year. A painter using lead-containing paints died with paralysis in both legs; they did an autopsy and found the same “polio” lesions on his spinal cord.
It was recorded over and again - arsenic, carbon monoxide, lead, mercury, cyanide - chemicals used in industry, agriculture and life as it was lived, caused palsies, paralysis and death.
And then Scobey saw the bridge - and crossed it. He noted that medical injections, on the rise in the U.S. in the '30s and '40s, probably also causes “polio.” He cited the case of Western Samoa, 1936. Great white doctors trying to stop tropical diseases injected arsenic-containing drugs into the locals.
The result? “In one community all of the patients developed paralysis in the same lower limbs and buttocks in which they had received the injections.” (Oops!) “And this pattern was repeated in 37 other villages.” (Oops!!) “Whereas there was no paralysis in uninoculated districts.” (Uhm….oops?)
“The natives accused the injections as the cause of the epidemic of poliomyelitis. Most of the cases of paralysis occurred one to two weeks after the injection of the arsenic.”
(Well, what did they know, anyway? They weren't doctors, after all! On the other hand, they'd probably never become paralyzed after being injected with arsenic, so you can't fault them for applying a little logic to the situation.)
Scobey made a great argument, but the virus hunt was already on. And industry was trying something new.
Good For Me-E-E!
The chemical industries must have seen the writing on the wall for the age of arsenic, lead and (maybe not) mercury. They decided to roll out a new wonder-chemical. Something they would advertise to stop polio - and its invisible viral cause - dead in its tracks. And boy, was it a blockbuster product.
It got a big commercial push, even from the U.S. Government: “Use it to stop ﬂeas, lice and ticks dead! And kill the ﬂies that we think (might!) carry polio! Spray it liberally - in airliner cabins, in homes, on children! On their clothes! On their food! Spray it in clouds from trucks where mothers and children play, where farm-workers are exposed to deadly dirt from the ﬁelds! Spray it, eat it, breathe it, sleep with it!”
And people did. It was sprayed on the Philippines, it was sprayed on Philadelphia. From St. Louis to Dallas to Chicago. From Florida to New Jersey and every beach in between. And it really did work. It killed pests dead. Polio rates also skyrocketed and paralytic polio had never been higher, but, you know, nothing's perfect.
Oh, right. I forgot to tell you the name! DDT, dichloro- diphenyl-trichloro-ethane. (Don't try to say it without adult supervision.) It was a product of the great Monsanto company, manufacturer of PCBs, saccharin, Agent Orange and other hits. (PCB production alone has caused East St. Louis - home of Monsanto, Inc. - to be a dioxin-ﬁlled cancer- ridden toxic waste dump. So, you know, what could go wrong by letting the company loose on all of America?)
“DDT is good for Me-E-E!” went the copy from one ad, showing a mother bottle-feeding her child. Everything in view - orchards, apples, cows, their feed, their milk and the human baby drinking it, its mother, clothes, house, family and bottle - had been sprayed with DDT.
And then the major polio epidemics that we hear about - those of the early 1950s - occurred. As polio rates soared and children were dropping, a hew and cry went out for some relief from the dreaded “summer plague.” (Summer - when children at the beach were being sprayed with massive clouds of DDT. When they were eating orchard fruit, and bug spray - DDT again - was used liberally.)
The race to make a vaccine began. And here's where I make a confession; it's not something I had anything to do with, but it's in the family. In fact, growing up, I was told to be proud of it. My grandfather - or so goes the family lore - did some initial work on the oral polio vaccine - the live one. He was a medical student and as part of earning a scholarship he set up a lab for Albert Sabin. I don't know how much work, if any, he did with Sabin after that. But my grandfather, Robert C. Mellors, did spend a great deal of his career working on what came next - the hunt for a virus that could be blamed for cancer. More on that next chapter.
But even though my grandfather worked on the live vaccine, he wouldn't let his children, or at least my mother, be a “polio pioneer.” That is, kids in public schools were being asked to volunteer to be the ﬁrst trial mice for the injected vaccine - the one belonging to Jonas Salk. My grandfather said, “No, we don't know what the eﬀects of this thing are going to be.”
But it was Jonas Salk and his injectable wonder which won the ﬁeld. He ordered monkeys from India, Asia and Africa - 17,000 of them - to be run out of the jungle, bagged, caged, caught and shipped to the United States. The monkeys were killed, their organs ripped out and used to grow…something. Albert Sabin, who produced the live oral vaccine, would mash up the kidneys of 9,000 monkeys and chimpanzees to grow his “polio” bug.
They decided that polio was caused by an ordinary stomach bug and they decided to grow “it” to turn into vaccines for all American children. And they needed living tissue to do it. This is the legacy of Pasteur, Jenner, Landsteiner and Popper. Modern medicine loves to chop up animals, leach something out of the mashed pieces and shove it into your body.
Which raises a funny question: why did the purveyors of the anti-religious, Western scientiﬁc method so deeply embrace something that even more brutally recapitulates the animal sacriﬁce of the ancient civilizations and is less medically-sound than voodoo? (And no, the ASPCA has no position on vaccination. Neither does PETA.)
Salk's vaccine was released for massive public trials in 1954 and to the general public in ’55. It contained the material that he drained or siphoned out of these monkey kidney mixtures. It was ﬁlled with other chemicals (like formaldehyde), to stun or “attenuate” the virus. Or, whatever was in those brews. It was injected into hundreds of thousands of kids. And it was a great success and polio went away.
Or, that's the picture-book version. But even the mainstream will tell you a version of the truth.
First, the polio rate exploded, especially the number of paralyzed children. Polio rates doubled, tripled and quadrupled - dozens became hundreds, following vaccination. States that had done the widest vaccination had the most cases. Massachusetts went from 273 to 2,027, after injecting 130,000 kids. The state banned the vaccine (for a moment). Numbers went up around the country: Wisconsin; 326 to 1655. Maryland; 134 to 189. New York State; 469 to 764.
The press jumped on it. What was wrong with the Salk Vaccine? The Roosevelt administration panicked. Harper's magazine asked, “What the @#$# is going on here?” The medical authorities found a scapegoat - it wasn't the vaccine itself. No, it was the fault of “bad batches.” The mainstream calls it “the Cutter incident.” But the program was damaged and they decided to switch to the live polio vaccine, given on a sugar cube, rather than injected directly into the blood.
I hadn’t thought of it that way before. But the bad batches or “hot lots” narrative has been useful during covid. Because it implies that as long as you avoid the bad batches the rest are OK. It’s a wonderful mind trick. Some batches are bad, who knows why, maybe a manufacturing problem, but everything is just fine.
But what about the chemical causes of polio? In 1950, Dr. Morton Biskind presented his thesis to the Congressional Committee. He pulled no punches:
“In rats, mice, rabbits, guinea pigs, cats, dogs, chicks, goats, sheep, cattle, horses and monkeys, DDT produces functional disturbances and degenerative changes in the skin, liver, gall bladder, lungs, kidney, spleen, thyroid, adrenals, ovaries, testicles, heart muscle, blood vessels, voluntary muscles, the brain and spinal cord and peripheral nerves, gastrointestinal tract and blood. DDT is as lethal in repeated small doses as in larger single doses....DDT is stored in the body fat and is excreted in the milk of dogs, rats, goats and cattle and as we have shown, in that of humans too. Virtually all these eﬀects have also repeatedly been observed in known DDT poisonings in human beings.”
Even Albert Sabin noticed the eﬀects of DDT. He wrote that U.S. soldiers in the Philippines had a polio rate 10 times that of the mainland. What was the diﬀerence? In the tropics they were being being sprayed with DDT, to the point that it became a leading cause of death. But there was no polio outbreak among islanders who were not being sprayed.
This happens because DDT is an organochlorine neurotoxin. And that's what it's supposed to do - paralyze and kill. When we spray it on animals, they get polio. When we spray it on people or their food, they get polio, but worse because it triples and quadruples the number of paralytic cases. His argument was rock-solid. But nobody cared, because, well, you can't sue a virus (but you can sue industry).
But ask the question today - as a researcher named Jim West did. How did the use and production of pesticides and DDT especially, stack up against the rate of the epidemic? West did the math, took the tablespoons and measured the amount of pesticides produced in the U.S. for the period coinciding with the major polio epidemic of the 1940s. And he found a correlation:
In each year following an increase in pesticide production comes a correlating spike in polio cases. When pesticide production goes down, you get a matching decline in polio cases. (See chapter notes.)
West asks, does it matter that cows who eat feed sprayed with DDT produce milk that passes the DDT to their calves? Or that the baby cows become paralyzed and sometimes die? Or that entire schools, having consumed milk from a dairy using DDT, had a lighting-strike outbreak - a hundred or more people all at once, downed with polio?
The Re-Naming Game
But you can't alter a madness in midstream, as the saying goes, or ought to - so the program had to continue.
Money - I mean lives - were at stake. And the CDC and medical authorities devised a plan so cunning it made Albert the Cunning, of Cunningwood-on-the-Swamp, master of devious plans, champion con-artist and top cat burglar in all of the royal kingdom of Cunningham, look like an amateur slob at an open call for derelict nincompoops. (Any “Black Adder” fans out there? That was for you.)
The medical authority - our CDC, NIH and now the W.H.O. (World Health Organization) - decided that what was polio would be no more. And what would be called polio, would be a moo-cow of a diﬀerent color. In order to get out of the increase in polio cases, they…ready? You want to guess?
They changed the deﬁnition of polio. GOD, that's clever. Wow. WOW! So simple, and they got us all. Sucker-punch! We'll just change the deﬁnition!
For the eternity of the problem of infantile paralysis, “polio” was the name given to any illness within a range of a neurological perturbance - some muscle weakness, a summer ﬂu with tingling in the arms, a weakened limb and rarely, rarely, a ﬂaccid or paralyzed limb, hand or part of the body. All of that was “polio.” If you had any of this for a 24- hour period, you had “polio.”
You could certainly get better - in fact, it was expected that with care (and there were lots of home remedies, more on that in a minute), you could or would get better. But even if you had it for a day, you had “polio.”
But that was no good for the numbers, which had to go down, to satisfy the medical authority. So, after 1956, polio was only one illness - severe paralysis. The majority of what had been polio just went away. It would have a new name. But we'll get to that.
Only paralysis would count in the post-vaccine period. And not a 24 hour problem, either. No, you had to have it for…ready? No, not two days. No, not a week.
Two months. From 24 hours, to sixty days. Overnight, polio, which was an illness that most often manifested in mild forms and went away, became an illness which had to cripple and last forever. “Polio” rates plummeted and the vaccine was publicized as a success.
Then the polio experts took a page out of ol' Louis Pasteur's playbook: the 15-day rule. After the vaccine was introduced, not only would polio not be “polio” unless you were sick for two months, but if you got sick within 15 days of being incepted - (do you want to ﬁnish this one?) - Yes! Then you already “had polio” and it wasn't the vaccine's fault. And it wouldn't be counted as a failure. Hoorah for the vaccine!
And there you have it, polio vanished with the stroke of a pen. If only Chris Rock had read this passage, I wonder how he would have rewritten his bit.
Polio is a cover story for pesticides. With a patsy virus (arguably the original patsy virus).
Vaccines “eradicated” a cover story.
Vaccine “success” was built on redefining the disease.
I am going to digress briefly and look at what Maready had to say about the definitional changes made in the polio story. This from The Moth in the Iron Lung:
The live poliovirus vaccine of Albert Sabin won the national recommendation over that of Harold Cox, but would not be fully implemented until 1963. By then, poliomyelitis had nearly disappeared from the U.S. landscape, due in large part to the dwindling presence of lead arsenate and DDT.
It wasn’t just the pesticides, however. Another quirk of science and epidemiology ensured that cases of polio would plunge. Anytime an illness is studied as thoroughly as poliomyelitis was in the 1940s and 1950s, an increase in knowledge should be expected. As specifics around the nature of the disease increase, so too will the specificity of its definition. This narrowing of criteria will inevitably cause the diagnosis of fewer cases, a phenomenon Dr. Greenberg explained clearly to the gape-jawed conference:
If the vaccine was not as effective, one might wonder why the tremendous reduction occurred in the 1955, 1956, and 1957 reported rates. Here again, much of this reduction was a statistical artifact.
Prior to 1954 any physician who reported paralytic poliomyelitis was doing his patient a service by way of subsidizing the cost of hospitalization and was being community-minded in reporting a communicable disease. The criterion of diagnosis at that time in most health departments followed the World Health Organization definition: “Spinal paralytic poliomyelitis: Signs and symptoms of non-paralytic poliomyelitis with the addition of partial or complete paralysis of one or more muscle groups, detected on two examinations at least 24 hours apart.”
Note that “two examinations 24 hours apart” was all that was required. Laboratory confirmation and presence of residual paralysis was not required. In 1954 the criteria were changed to conform more closely to the definition used in the 1954 field trials: residual paralysis was determined 10 to 20 days after onset of illness and again 50 to 70 days after onset. The influence of the field trials is still evident in most health departments; unless there is residual involvement at least 60 days after onset, a case of poliomyelitis is not considered paralytic.
This change in definition meant that in 1955 we started reporting a new disease, namely, paralytic poliomyelitis with a longer lasting paralysis. Furthermore, diagnostic procedures have continued to be refined. Coxsackie virus infections and asceptic meningitis have been distinguished from paralytic poliomyelitis. Prior to 1954 large numbers of these cases undoubtedly were mislabeled as paralytic poliomyelitis. Thus, simply by changes in diagnostic criteria, the number of paralytic cases was predetermined to decrease in 1955-1957, whether or not any vaccine was used.
Before the introduction of the vaccine, if someone was stricken with poliomyelitis, they had to exhibit the symptoms for 24 hours to count on the register as a true case of paralytic polio. After the vaccine, it required 60 days of paralysis. With the flick of a pen, cases of paralytic polio began to instantly disappear from the record books.
It’s impossible to talk about this diagnostic change without creating overtones of a conspiracy to hide the inefficacy of the Salk vaccine. This was decidedly not the case. No one was purposefully trying to manipulate the number of paralytic polio cases to make the vaccine appear to work—they were simply standardizing the diagnostic criteria to align with previous trials of the vaccine so that accurate comparisons were possible. The timing of the change—coupled with the vaccine’s recall—makes it appear as though a calculated attempt was made to mislead the public. While the public was deliberately misled in other aspects of the vaccine’s safety and efficacy, this was not a part of it.
Despite popular opinion, the much ballyhooed vaccines of Jonas Salk or Albert Sabin likely had very little to do with the decline of polio in the United States. Although Salk’s vaccine was made ready for use in 1955, the recall and resulting panic meant it would not see widespread use until a couple of years later, when poliomyelitis deaths had already plummeted from 1952’s high of 3,145 to 221. Its efficacy was widely doubted by the scientific community and may not even have been capable of preventing poliomyelitis at all.
Although Sabin’s vaccine did impact poliovirus infections specifically, its arrival in 1963 was too late to have had a meaningful impact when, despite its exploding population, the United States produced only 441 cases of poliomyelitis, 90 of which resulted in death.
Whether the vaccines worked or not could be considered irrelevant.
Even if they worked perfectly, they were still only capable of preventing poliovirus infections and none of the other myriad causes of poliomyelitis.
It is tempting to suppose that the majority of cases of paralysis in the U.S. were caused by the poliovirus specifically, but in an outbreak near Detroit, Michigan, in 1958—where over 869 people were diagnosed with polio—exhaustive studies, including fecal analysis, concluded that only 292 actually had the poliovirus. Given the innocuous nature of poliovirus infections, one could not even definitively say why those 292 were sick.
Now back to Scheff:
Brilliant, huh? Or, devious or satanic or whatever adjective you'd like to use at this point.
It's the same game that Louis Pasteur played. He destroyed animals that got sick from his injections - he hid the evidence and built his argument by excluding data. Jenner did the same thing - illness and death after injection was were called “spurious,” which somehow excused the pus-and-blood exposure and blamed, who knows? The patient? Or some “previous, unseen exposure.” They controlled the interpretation of data, so they wrote the history to reﬂect their great successes. Most important - nothing was never their fault. This motto became the operating manual for today's medical priesthood, who write the oﬃcial stories.
Super Monkey Ball
I want to point out one important bit of evidence which will bring us to the modern era. The “vaccine” of Edward Jenner - the pus and blood, er, “fresh lymph” had been replaced by something entirely diﬀerent.
The Salk brand of vaccine would be grown in a substrate - a living cell matrix. Of what you ask?
And we're back where we started: Ovaries. Kidneys. Testicles. Human fetal tissue. Dog, hamster, mouse organs.
And of course, Salk’s 17,000 butchered monkeys. Very beautiful and smart animals, but who cares, right? He saved the world, after all.
But you can' t just siphon oﬀ ﬂuid and cellular detritus from animal cells - you have to mix it with chemicals, to insure that it's stable, that it doesn't quite rot and that it truly inﬂames and agitates the immune system. So the good people at Merck, Novartis, Glaxo and Bristol-Myers-Squibb have a batch of chemicals on-hand that they drip into what gets shot into your children.
Chemicals like thimerosal, for example, which is used as a stabilizer. You've never heard of thimerosal (thigh-mare- oh-sal), but you have heard of quicksilver. I mean, mercury. Because that's what thimerosal is.
If you hear a ringing in your head, it's because mercury is a deadly neurotoxin, that on its own causes paralysis and death, as has been known since the time of the ancient Greeks, as recorded in Hippocrates. (I hear your, “Amen,” Ralph Scobey.)
And then add squalene and so many chemicals; formaldehyde, tween-80, aluminum, ammonia, sucrose, MSG, phenol, aspartame and more.
This is a book of essays, not a textbook, so you should go look those up and then call your lawyer, because I think that every parent in the world whose child has been exposed to this crap should sue these companies until they bleed black tar. But, hey, that's just my opinion. (And you can see chapter notes for some sites to do that research.)
And that's just about the end of the polio story. Except, what happened to all the mild polio cases? They're still around. During the re-naming game, they got called something new. No longer polio if under 60 days, all of these mystery ailments are now go under pseudonyms: aseptic meningitis. That was the invention of the polio crowd. It is polio - non-speciﬁc partial paralysis, muscle weakness, fever and nerve issues.
Or, West Nile virus or Epstein-Barr. And the list goes on. All of these “new” viruses are about as dangerous as the bug they blamed on polio. And they did blame a stomach bug. And they eventually sort of photographed something.
They made a test for it, but medical tests aren't ever for viruses, they are for proteins and proteins are never speciﬁc enough to show you a particular bug (more on that next chapter).
The anomalies pile up for the true believers. People around the world who were shown to “have” the polio virus never had “polio.” They were not paralyzed in any fashion. They were also not being exposed to pesticides.
On the ﬂip side are the people around the world who do have “polio,” that is, who are suﬀering signiﬁcant cases of childhood and adult paralysis, nerve damage and palsies - but do not test positive for the “polio” stomach bug. The medical authorities have a special designation for these people: “Non-Poliomyelitis acute ﬂaccid paralysis,” or non- polio polio. (Gosh, they are clever, aren't they?)
The problem with the polio bug is that it is, indeed, a stomach bug, not a blood or nervous system parasite. To this day, nobody can tell you how a common intestinal hanger-on, which leaves your body in your doo-doo and which occurs all over the world without incident, sometimes, somehow manages to cause tingling in your arm - let alone paralysis. Oh, they try to prove it. They take monkeys and rip open some part of their body. They expose nerves and inject laboratory crap into their nervous systems. Then they delight in the fact that the monkeys no longer seem entirely healthy…
But come on. You can take a candy bar or a birthday cake, or a handful of good wishes, mash it up, inject it into a monkey's spine or nervous system and kill it dead, fast. So, give me a break with that kind of laboratory “proof.”
But even the oﬃcial version falls apart like a greek pastry given the slightest prodding. Let's look:
The CDC (and this is repeated on the Wikipedia - the CIA factbook) tells us that the “polio” virus causes paralytic polio in exactly, precisely… drum roll please….
.1% to .5% of people who are infected. Once more: one tenth of one percent of the time. The rest of the time, they say, it causes either no illness (98% of the time) or mild to moderate illness.
According to the oﬃcial story, “polio” is the virus that causes polio - except 99.5% to 99.9% of the time. And never look at DDT, organophosphates and chlorines, or vaccination itself.
A statistician will tell you that statistics are all lies and you should buﬀer anything with at least a 5 to 10% margin for error. So, adding in a fair buﬀer for statistical error, we can fairly say that polio is the virus that causes polio, except for 104.5% of cases. It seems reasonable then to drug everybody in the world for a problem most probably caused by pesticides and heavy metals.
It might have crossed your attention that while the CDC is scaring us with notions of terrible viruses from chickens, ducks and little piglets, while assuring us that we need vaccines to protect us from these ravaging “new viruses,” they are, at the same time, injecting us with a brew of living crap that comes from birds, dogs, rodents and aborted people.
Hey, I'm just pointing it out. Some researchers have gone so far as to say the monkey viruses in the original polio vaccines have caused terrible diseases in people who got them. And they may be right. If we're supposed to be afraid of sneezing sheep or ducks or whatever's next (“The snail ﬂu is coming! The galloping snail ﬂu!”), then we probably don't want to be injecting ourselves with the insides of other animals.
Or, you know, forcing it upon entire nations. But, I know, I'm just kooky that way.
Free at Last
But it wasn't all news on the polio front. One man who was ahead of even Biskind and Scobey in dealing with the problem was a Southern doctor named Fred Klenner. Klenner had an idea: “Let's help people get better, we can worry about the cause later.” He had a favorite medication, which he injected with his large 50cc syringe. He would take ounces of this drug and inject it into the veins and arteries of patients who were suﬀering paralysis.
In 1949 he published a paper of his cases thus far - 60 out of 60 individuals, some with advanced and worsening cases of total, life-threatening paralysis recovered. An incredible report from the center of the polio epidemic, but there it is in the medical journal “Southern Medicine and Surgery.” And it's not his only success with this drug.
So, what's the drug? It's something that works as a reducing agent - it allows the body to break apart and excrete toxic molecules like lead, metals, arsenic and other things that the body usually can't deal with. The drug is cheap, readily available and non-toxic even in massive doses. And it's in your broccoli, kale and oranges. Got it? Right. Vitamin C. Or, injected, sodium ascorbate.
It is also true that vitamin C is a chemical for making collagen, beating infections and mobilizing ﬁfty cellular processes, It is also produced by all animals in their bodies, with the exception of monkeys, guinea pigs and we human beings. Go ﬁgure.
High-dose therapeutic levels of intravenous Vitamin C, an anti-toxin, has not only reversed polio, but combined with green tea extract and selenium, has reversed and eradicated many cancers. You'd think the medical establishment would be happier about this good news.
Unless, of course, they're not really interested in that kind of thing - helping people get better with no side eﬀects at a very low cost, I mean.
You can read about the wonders of Vitamin C in ﬁghting and beating ﬂus, polio, snake bites, poisoning and invasive cancers, in a number of books; I'll recommend “Vitamin C Infectious Diseases & Toxins” by Thomas Levy. It's wonderful stuﬀ.
HPV, the Virus that Doesn't Cause Cervical Cancer
The polio debacle was turned into a success by fudging numbers - and by banning DDT. That happened in 1972, despite the complaints of world-builders. Rachel Carson, who pointed out that the chemical doesn't go away and kills a whole lot of everything, was hammered like a paper-thin robin's egg for reporting what was happening. But it worked and only a few generations of Americans had to be crippled by the chemical-industrial complex that time around.
After the great success of selling everyone the polio vaccine, the virus-hunters were more or less stuck sitting around with nothing to do, scratching their sagging tushies. They had to invent something to cure, so they did. The motto went, “We might have beaten polio - but what about cancer?”
In the early 1970s the royal decree of industrial medicine went out: “We will ﬁnd the viruses responsible for cancer and then cure them through drugs and vaccination.” (That's what the next chapter is about.)
These researchers have mistaken the quest for discovery. They take the weakest of data and evidence and make it into a fact, or an ad campaign. So it came upon all of us in 2005 that a stunning new breakthrough was here. There was a vaccine for HPV. “For what?” most of us said. And the mainstream responded, “For HPV, the virus that causes cancer.”
So, what is HPV? A common wart virus, which can aﬀect the genitals, but does so very rarely. But now that it’s a medically-approved bit of advertising, injections for the “disease” can be pushed on all 4 to 11 year-old girls. This new injection is not only considered to be socially responsible, but truly important, based on the well- understood fact that all young girls have the same sex and drug habits as 65 year-old prostitutes in Montmartre during the swinging, syphilitic 1920s. Did I lose you with that last bit? We'll catch up as we go.
The mainstream medical establishment claims that the common papilloma virus (HPV) causes cervical cancer in women. They began pushing this as a national agenda, once they had a vaccine that they said would prevent, well, it's not clear. Prevent the virus from being contracted? Prevent it from expressing? Hard to say. That it would “stop HPV” is about as clear as the media asked them to be.
So, stop HPV, stop cervical cancer. Meaning that HPV is truly deadly and that cervical cancer is a galloping plague, preying on a brutalized silent majority of women. Or else, why would we inject every little girl with a dangerous drug? And it is dangerous. Even the mainstream admits that it's a troubled “medicine.”
But why inject little girls? It’s women who get cervical cancer. Do little girls get HPV? HPV is supposed to be spread by sex. The medical establishment is now saying that your four year-old is a slut. She's probably not old enough to be a whore and trade money or goods for sex. But clearly, yes, she's a little tramp. Better inject her. Because parents all over America are so negligent in preventing their daughters from working on their backs that the government has to intervene. As they like to say, “it's for the children.”
Just under the “HPV causes cervical cancer” banner ad, the oﬃcial medical reports also state that a majority of people have the “virus” at some point and almost nobody gets cervical cancer.
The press release going around in 2005, when they started this pogrom (no, it's not a misspelling), was .16%. That is, .16 of “infected” women ever develop cervical cancer. You had to work a little to get that number out of what they gave you, because they disguised it. The paper from “Oncology Today” stated that out of 1,000,000 women, 1,600 would eventually get cervical cancer. If... (and hold that thought).
We're taught to think in base 10 and usually in percentages. That's per, “out of,” cento, “one hundred.” So, why throw a million at us? Because it's confusing. And 1,600 out of a million is a lot scarier than .16 out of 100.
But they are the same number. Sixteen hundredths of a percent. That's less than a quarter of one person. If. The “if” clause in the “will get cervical cancer” reads like this: if they are over 50 years old, have never had a pap test or any kind of gynecological care, ever. Also, if their systems are impaired by drugs, alcohol and poverty.
In other words, .16 percent of 55-year-old prostitutes with a drug habit who never thought to get their happy hoo- hoos looked at for a general check-up and who probably are so deﬁcient in basic nutrients that it's not worth talking about “viruses” at all, sometimes, but rarely get cervical cancer. And that's their number. Who knows, they might have made it up.
Real world. In Maryland, in 2006, during the Gardasil roll-out, the rate of cervical cancer per 100,000 women was listed as 6.7. Yes, six point seven. No, I don't know who the point seven of a woman was or what she was doing at the time of this survey. I wish her well, certainly.
But, again, out of 100. The rate of cervical cancer occurring in the general public or whoever was surveyed for genital health in Maryland that year, was .0067 percent. That means that, according to the mainstream, HPV is the virus that causes cervical cancer, except about 99.99% of the time.
So, that's pretty good, as correlations go. Might as well start a national campaign and get all the liberal media on the apple cart and roll it down main street, picking up all the children and injecting them with helpful monkey balls and mercury. But wait, there's more.
The mainstream also states that carrageenan (kelp extract) “strongly inhibited diﬀerent HPV strains' ability to attach and therefore enter human cells.” That's from “New Scientist” magazine in 2006. The quote comes from virologists and specialists working on the problem of how to stop the deadly, marauding plague of, well... Look, I'm very sympathetic if you've had this problem. But if you have, I can recommend something to you that worked really well. Oh, wait, they already did: seaweed. Here's their quote: “We were ﬂoored by how much better it worked than anything else we have tested,” said the National Cancer Institute researcher.
They also say that “Although HPV infection is common, the majority of men and women clear the virus from the body and don’t suﬀer from any sequelae of the infection.” No sequelae - that means, no secondary eﬀects. No cancer. No warts. No nothing. We just “clear the virus.” That's a phrase you'll be hearing next chapter, too. We're going to be doing a lot of “virus clearing,” so, you know, stretch those hamstrings a bit.
They also say that the vaccine is no good if you've already been exposed and really doesn't work against many strains. Meaning, vaccination is not considered to be worth anything unless you have the precise matching “strain,” which is how they get you coming back year after year, month after month for new “ﬂu” vaccines (which cause “ﬂu- like” symptoms). Which helps me understand that the oﬃcial story - that Edward Jenner “cured” smallpox with cow and horse pus, Louis Pasteur “cured” rabies with spinal cords and Jonas Salk “cured” polio with monkey kidneys and formaldehyde - is just a story.
And what's left to say about vaccination?
Only that vaccines are very good at crippling, maiming and also killing the young people who take them. Oh - and now they're giving Gardasil to boys. Because, you know, their cervixes are in danger, too.
Or, look up “Gardasil and Cervarix deaths,” online. At the point of publication, 71 girls whose poor, suckered parents believed this pharmacidal horseshit have lost their children to instant agonizing death, following injections with...
With whatever magical potions they put in those wonderful needles.
