Federal government admits, although required by law, it does not monitor vaccine safety

Did you know that vaccine manufacturers cannot be sued in state courts for damages as a result of design-defects in their products?

That’s what the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 6-2 in Bruesewitz v. Wyeth — that the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act protects vaccine manufacturers from design-defect claims.

Congress had passed the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA) in 1986 in response to a massive increase in litigation against vaccine manufacturers, which drove two of the largest domestic manufacturers out of business and led to a shortage of vaccines. Congress created the new law to shield vaccine manufactures from tort litigation and, in so doing, alleviate the growing shortage of vaccines. (Homeland Security News Wire)

In place of lawsuits against vaccine manufacturers, the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act created a system of federal government oversight of vaccine safety:

  1. All health care providers must report adverse vaccination events and possible side effects to a post-marketing surveillance program — the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), co-managed by the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) and the FDA (Food and Drug Administration). The CDC and FDA are agencies within the federal government’s Department of Health & Human Services (HHS).
  2. To coordinate vaccine-related activities of the CDC, FDA and other HHS agencies, the NCVIA created the National Vaccine Program — an office within the HHS which is required under Title 42, United States Code, 300aa-27(c), to report every two years to Congress about vaccine safety, adverse reactions, and other aspects of vaccinations.

Indeed, the Supreme Court’s majority opinion in Bruesewitz v. Wyeth by Justice Antonin Scalia concluded (p. 55 of Bruesewitz v. Wyeth) that by passing the NCVIA, Congress had struck a “careful balance between providing adequate compensation for vaccine-injured children and conferring substantial benefits on vaccine manufacturers to ensure a stable and predictable childhood vaccine supply.” Nevertheless, the Supreme Court’s “majority’s decision today disturbs that careful balance based on a bare policy preference that it is better ‘to leave complex epidemiological judgments about vaccine design to the FDA and the National Vaccine Program rather than juries.’”

Informed Consent Action Network (ICAN) is a non-profit founded by Del Bigtree to investigate “the safety of medical procedures, pharmaceutical drugs, and vaccines while advocating for people’s right to ‘informed consent’.”

On August 25, 2017, ICAN filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit for those bi-annual vaccine reports that the HHS is required to send Congress, pursuant to 42 U.S.C. SS300aa-27(c).

HHS stonewalled ICAN’s FOIA request for eight months.

On April 12, 2018, ICAN filed another lawsuit, “Informed Consent Action Network v. U.S. Department of Health and Human Services” in U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York, demanding an answer to their FOIA filing.

On July 6, 2018, ICAN finally received a response — an admission in federal court by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the federal agency mandated by Congress under 42 U.S.C. SS300aa-27(c) to track vaccine safety, that they had never done it:

Although the HHS’ National Vaccine Program Office is required to report every two years to Congress on their monitoring of vaccines, the HHS has no such records — not even one in the 31 years since 1987.  That means the National Vaccine Program had never monitored vaccine manufacturers for vaccine safety and side effects.

Here is a screenshot of the “Stipulation” or court order in ICAN v. HHS, in which HHS made that stunning admission:

As ICAN observes:

The 1986 [National Childhood Vaccine Injury] Act created a system in which vaccines are licensed, recommended, encouraged, subsidized, and defended by HHS. The 1986 Act’s scheme thus places HHS in charge of two competing duties. On one hand, HHS is responsible for vaccine safety. On the other hand, HHS is required to promote vaccine uptake and defend against any claim they cause any harm.

Regrettably, it appears that HHS has chosen to focus almost entirely on its vaccine promotion and defense function to such a degree that it has essentially abandoned its vaccine safety function.

To summarize:

  1. Congress passed a law in 1986 protecting vaccine manufacturers from being sued in state courts.
  2. At the same time, Congress created an agency within HHS, charged with the job of monitoring vaccine safety.
  3. That agency, National Vaccine Program Office, is supposed to report to Congress every two years.
  4. As a result of two lawsuits by the non-profit Informed Consent Action Network, HHS finally admitted in federal court that it doesn’t have any reports from the National Vaccine Program Office.
  5. This means HHS had never monitored vaccine safety, although it is required by law to do so.
  6. Neither has Congress done its job. Why hasn’t Congress held HHS to account for failing to submit vaccine safety reports?
  7. This means the American people really have no reason, other than what vaccine manufacturers say, to think vaccines are safe.
  8. And yet the media demonize vaccine skeptics as “conspiracy theory” crazies.

Bonus News:

Did you know that generic drug manufacturers cannot be sued for manufacturing and selling a defective drug? – even if:

  • The drug causes horrific injuries;
  • The generic company knew the drug was causing horrific injuries and did nothing to warn patients or doctors about the dangers of the drug.

That’s because the Supreme Court ruled in PLIVA v. Mensing (2011) and Mutual Pharma. V. Bartlett (2013) that while brand-name companies are allowed to add new warnings to their drug labels without getting prior permission from the FDA, generic companies are not. If a generic drug company discovers a new side effect of one of its drugs, it is not permitted to tell patients or doctors about this new information. It must first contact the FDA and request that the brand-name label be changed. Only after the brand-name label is changed is the generic company allowed to change its label. In essence, generic manufacturers are prohibited from giving any warnings to doctors or to the public that have not already been given by the brand-name manufacturer.

Unfunny comedian George Lopez pees on Donald Trump’s star in Hollywood

On July 10, 2018, so-called comedian George Lopez was on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame.

As reported by TMZ, after chatting up fans and making sure that someone stands ready with a video cam, the 57-year-old Lopez appeared to unzip his pants, take out his tiny penis, and pee on Donald Trump’s star.

Here’s the video:

While what Lopez actually did was to simulate peeing on Trump’s star with a water bottle, he’s another demonstration of the self-described “tolerant” Left’s childishness and plain insanity.

Recall that Lopez repaid his wife for donating one of her kidneys to him by divorcing her. Given that display of sterling character, President Trump should take Lopez’s urinating on his star as a badge of honor.

FBI agent Peter Strzok looked possessed; wiggles like a snake like Hillary Clinton

Peter Strzok (pronounced “struck”) is the FBI agent and chief of the Bureau’s Counterespionage Section who led two of the FBI’s most important investigations into:

  1. Hillary Clinton’s illegal use of a personal email server while she was Obama’s Secretary of State.
  2. Russian interference in and alleged collusion with Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election.

Strzok had worked with Special Counsel Robert Mueller in the Russian investigation, but was removed in late July 2017 after the discovery of some 50,000 text messages he’d exchanged with Lisa Page — a colleague who was also working on the Russian investigation and with whom Strzok was having an adulterous affair — throughout the 2016 presidential election and first year of the Trump administration.

In their text messages, Strzok and Page show their clear political bias against Donald Trump and for Hillary Clinton, although FBI agents are supposed to be non-partisan in doing their work. The two adulterers bashed Trump and discussed concerns about being too tough on Hillary Clinton in their investigation into her unlawful use of a private email server.

Here are some anti-Trump comments in the Strzok-Page text messages (sources: CBS Miami; Fox News):

Strzok: “[Bernie Sanders is] an idiot like Trump.”

Page: “God Trump is a loathsome human.” Strzok responded: “This man cannot be president.”

In one particular message, when Page asked if Trump would ever become president, Strzok replied, “No. No he won’t. We’ll stop it.

Interestingly, in the text messages, Strzok also said he was hesitant to join Mueller’s Russian investigation because of his “gut sense” that there was “no big there there.” Indeed, to this day, Mueller has not found even a shred of evidence of a Trump-Russian collusion.

On July 12, 2018, an arrogant Strzok testified at an extraordinary congressional hearing, described by the AP as “chaotic” and “devolved into shouting matches”. Strzok brazenly denied that the personal beliefs expressed in his text messages, including his “We’ll stop Trump” vow, had affected his work for the FBI in any way or that he and the FBI “would take any action whatsoever to improperly impact the electoral process for any candidate.” Cynically waving the flag, Strzok accused Congress’ investigation into him as misguided and playing into “our enemies’ campaign to tear America apart.”

Aside from Strzok’s wholly self-serving and downright unbelievable testimony, what is really disturbing about the hearing is his appearance and demeanor.

There’s no other word for it: Strzok looked possessed, with evil eyes and horns sprouting above his eyebrows.

But it’s not just the evil eyes and devil’s horns.

Strzok also did this really, really strange wiggle during the Congressional hearing:

In a tweet on July 12, conservative actor James Wood reminds us that Hillary Clinton, too, wiggled like Peter Strzok: “Great snakes writhe alike…”

Meanwhile, an insane Hillary actually invoked slavery as a reason against Trump’s nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, claiming Kavanaugh would bring back slavery by “turning the clock back to the 1850s”.

Sunday Devotional: He gave them authority over unclean spirits

Mark 6:7-13

Jesus summoned the Twelve and began to send them out two by two
and gave them authority over unclean spirits.
He instructed them to take nothing for the journey
but a walking stick—
no food, no sack, no money in their belts.
They were, however, to wear sandals
but not a second tunic.
He said to them,
“Wherever you enter a house, stay there until you leave.
Whatever place does not welcome you or listen to you,
leave there and shake the dust off your feet
in testimony against them.”
So they went off and preached repentance.
The Twelve drove out many demons,
and they anointed with oil many who were sick and cured them.

“The finest trick of the devil is to persuade you that he does not exist. (La plus belle des ruses du diable est de vous persuader qu’il n’existe pas.)” -Charles Baudelaire’s Le Joueur généreux, 1864.

Not only did Jesus cast out demons, the above passage from Mark 6 indicates He also gave the 12 Apostles authority to do the same.

So whom do you believe? — Jesus Christ or the Devil?

Although they are supposed to deliver their homilies based on the Gospel reading of the day, how many priests at Mass today will actually make mention of unclean spirits, devils, demons, and that Jesus had given them authority over demons?

The pusillanimous avoidance of all mention of devils, demons, and Hell by too many priests and ministers may account for why Americans increasingly no longer believe in the devil.

CNS News reports that a 2013 Harris Poll found that although 68% believed that Jesus is God or the Son of God, only 58% believed in the devil and Hell. That means at least 10% of Americans who believed Jesus is God did not, however, believe in the devil. That, in turn, suggests that those Jesus-believing Americans must think He was lying or insane when He spoke of demons and Hell (Mark 9) and cast out the “legion” of demons from two possessed men in Gadarenes (Matthew 8).

But the increasing numbers of satanists in America believe in the devil!

See:

How can we armor ourselves against the devil if we don’t even believe he exists? No wonder Americans increasingly are debauched and depraved.

St. Michael, the Archangel,
defend us in battle.
Be our protection
against the wickedness and snares of the Devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray.
And do thou,
oh Prince of the Heavenly Host,
by the power of God,
cast into Hell,
Satan and all the other evil spirits
who prowl about the world,
seeking the ruin of souls.
Amen.

When is a non-virgin a virgin?

Answer: When the Vatican says so!

A consecrated virgin is a woman who is a virgin, has never married, and pledges she will remain a virgin to dedicate her life to God. Unlike a nun, she does not live in a community and leads a secular life, providing for her own needs.

The U. S. Association of Consecrated Virgins (USACV) describes itself as:

A voluntary association of consecrated virgins living in the world. The purpose of the USACV is to provide support to its members in the faithful living out of their vocation to consecrated virginity and “…to assist one another in service to the Church as befits their state” (Canon 604, Code of Canon Law).

Catholic Herald reports, July 13, 2018, that the US Association of Consecrated Virgins is “deeply disappointed” at new rules issued by the Vatican that say consecrated virgins need not be virgins.

The Vatican issued the document, Ecclesiae Sponsae Imago (Instruction on the Ordo Virginum), last week after requests from bishops throughout the world for clarity on the role of consecrated virgins amid an upsurge in vocations — at a time when priest and nun vocations have declined.

USACV takes with section 88 of Ecclesiae Sponsae Imago, which states:

Thus to have kept her body in perfect continence or to have practiced the virtue of chastity in an exemplary way, while of great importance with regard to the discernment, are not essential prerequisites in the absence of which admittance to consecration is not possible.

The USACV issued this statement about Section 88:

It is shocking to hear from Mother Church that physical virginity may no longer be considered an essential prerequisite for consecration to a life of virginity. The entire tradition of the Church has firmly upheld that a woman must have received the gift of virginity – that is, both material and formal (physical and spiritual) – in order to receive the consecration of virgins. In the rite of consecration to a life of virginity, a woman is consecrated as “bride of Christ,” so that she might be “an eschatological image of the world to come and the heavenly Bride of Christ.” (from the Introduction to the Rite of Consecration to a Life of Virginity).

The USACV says that despite Section 88:

The prerequisites for consecration as stated in the Introduction to the Rite of Consecration to a Life of Virginity do not change with the issuance of this Instruction.

And the first prerequisite is that the consecrated virgin must be a virgin:

Those Women to Whom the Virginal Consecration May be Imparted: a) In the case of virgins leading lives in the world it is required that they have never celebrated marriage and that they have not publicly or manifestly lived in a state contrary to chastity.

A comment by “Maria” on California Catholic Daily about the Vatican’s elimination of virginity as a requirement to be consecrated virgin, puts it perfectly:

Well if the divorced and remarried can receive Communion, if Protestant spouses of Catholics can receive Communion, if priests and bishops can be active homosexuals, if civilly married gays can be active in church ministry and receive Communion, and if priests can openly promote undermining Catholic doctrine, then… sure… why not relax the standards on consecrated virgins too? They can consecrate a “second virginity” to Jesus. The wheels are coming off.

Demonic: Netflix airs ‘Salute to Abortion’; Presbyterian priest blesses PP abortion clinic

The Left’s contrived Constitutional “right” of women to exercise “reproductive choice” by aborting their unborn children has devolved into a demonic and blasphemous celebration of murder.

liberalism is evil

Last Sunday, July 8, 2018, the increasingly-evil media-services provider Netflix actually aired a “Salute to Abortion” at the end of the weekly program, “The Break with Michelle Wolf”.

Wolf is the unfunny so-called comedian who:

  • Called President Trump’s daughter Ivanka “herpes” and a cancerous tumor, and urged her Netflix viewers to harass Ivanka by telling her she is “like vaginal mesh”.
  • Joked about abortion and attacked White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders at the April 2018 White House Correspondents’ dinner.

As reported by Craig Bannister for CNSNews, Wolf used Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy’s announced retirement to tout abortion rights and demean pro-life Americans, with jokes like: “And, I know, some people call themselves ‘pro-life’- but, ‘pro-life’ is a propaganda term that isn’t real, like healthy ice cream and handsome testicles.”

Wolf then closed her program with a “Salute to Abortion”, draping the American flag over the killing of innocent human beings, and blaspheming “God bless abortion!”.

Wolf marched on stage in a stars-and-stripes majorette’s costume, accompanied by a drum corps and throwing confetti after each of the following declarations:

Abortion, I salute you!

“Women, if you need an abortion, get one!

“If you want an abortion, get one!

“If you’re not pregnant but you think you eventually might be and want to order a future abortion, get one!

“If you’re pregnant and you want to be pregnant, don’t get one!

“It’s up to you, and it doesn’t have to be a big deal. It’s actually a great deal. It’s about $300 – that’s like six movie tickets. Movie tickets: a big deal!

“And women, don’t forget: you have the power to give life and men will try to control that – don’t let them!

God bless abortions and God bless America!”

Netflix is evil. I cancelled my Netflix account a year ago. See:

Meanwhile, a Presbyterian minister named Marvin Ellison penned a column for the Press Herald defending abortion, in which he calls the abortion mill Planned Parenthood (PP) a “life affirming” “health center”, confided that he feels “blessed” to be a volunteer chaplain at the PP abortion clinic in Portland, Maine, and that he and fellow chaplains recently hosted “a blessing” of the clinic.

“Rev. Marvin Ellison, Ph.D.”, writes:

Along with our Planned Parenthood colleagues, we’re committed to showing care and respect for the whole person, including her (or his) physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. As chaplains, we undertake this work not in spite of, but because of our faith and values.

There are some who assume that if you’re a person of faith, you must stand in opposition to all that Planned Parenthood represents, but that’s far from true. Throughout the U.S., according to the Public Religion Research Institute, the majority of religiously affiliated people support sexual and reproductive health, rights and justice. Promoting health care for all, including reproductive and sexual health care, is an important religious value, and that commitment is nothing new. Clergy were among the earliest supporters of Margaret Sanger and other pioneers of the family planning movement….

Because the religious right knows how to make a large and unwelcome racket, I’ve now heard more than a few patients say to me, “Well, I didn’t expect to find a clergyperson inside the health center, but if Planned Parenthood says you’re OK, then you’re OK with me.”

Our chaplains not only support patients but also respond to the needs of the staff. I’ve been blessed to work closely with incredible health care providers and witness their grace, generosity and skills….

Recently our chaplains hosted a blessing of the Planned Parenthood health center here in Portland…. At the blessing, we concluded the event by saying, “Hear this loud and clear: In the name of all that is holy and good, Planned Parenthood your name is blessed. Each staff member is a blessing to this community and to those for whom you provide health care, education and advocacy. You are the blessing, and we thank God for you.”

Micaiah Bilger of LifeNews reminds us that:

  • Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion business in America, aborting approximately 320,000 unborn babies every year. Its most recent annual report showed a record income of $1.46 billion for the “non-profit,” with about half a billion dollars coming from taxpayers.
  • The Portland Planned Parenthood abortion facility in which Rev. Ellison serves as chaplain, aborts unborn babies up to 19 weeks (more than 4 months) of pregnancy, long after they already have heartbeats, brain waves, fingers, toes and their own unique fingerprints.
