Putting aside Hiltzik's trendy title
and pathetic attempts at research and citation, as well as his
nonsensical claims regarding Jenny McCarthy and Andrew
Wakefield, it is important to go to the source of the actual
research (of which Hiltzik, if his article is anything to go by,
is clearly incapable doing himself).
Taking a look at the interactive map provided by the CFR, one
may initially be struck by the number of highlighted bubbles
placed across the map of the world indicating disease outbreaks.
Many of these areas, of course, do represent outbreaks of the
respective diseases - some locations with over 10,000 cases of
the measles, 5,000 cases of whooping cough, and 24,000 cases of
rubella for instance.
Before addressing the numbers and the locations, however, it is
important to point out the first error of the CFR - the labeling
of the chart as "Vaccine-Preventable" outbreaks.
As I have discussed in my article "The
Antibody Deception," the only way that vaccine
effectiveness is measured is by the presence of antibodies
specific to the disease in the bloodstream.
presence does not equal immunity. Thus, until the scientific
community finds a way to actually determine the effectiveness of
vaccines, the term "vaccine preventable" is misleading and
should therefore no longer be used.
Another misleading aspect of the chart is the actual definition
of an "outbreak."
To most rational human beings, an "outbreak"
represents the presence of a disease which then spreads quickly
to a relatively large number of people within a given time frame
context, not simply an isolated case of the disease in only one
To the CFR, however, one isolated case of a disease is
indeed considered an "outbreak." All one has to do is hover over
many of the bubbles on the map to see that the CFR has attempted
to show an outbreak where none actually existed.
In the United States, the biggest issue (from the representation
on the CFR map) appears to be the prevalence of Pertussis/Whooping
Cough. Some of these numbers do indeed rank in the thousands if
the statistical integrity of the CFR is accurate (unfortunately,
these figures do not appear to be either accurate or honest).
However, it should be noted that, these
occurred in a time of high pertussis vaccination.
In fact, the
vaccination rate ranks in the range of over 80% of the
population (having had all four injections/booster shots)
prompting the CDC to state
that the vaccination rate for this disease has "remained high
and stable for at least the past decade."
For other countries, however, Pertussis is not the main threat.
Measles, if the statistics of the CFR are accurate, is the most
common "outbreak" culprit. Measles "outbreak" rates (true
outbreak numbers) are relatively high in Africa (particularly
sub-saharan), the Middle East, some Asian countries and,
interestingly enough, Europe. In Europe, the UK is the most
afflicted with measles outbreaks.
Although the CFR would have the readers believe that the UK has
had such a disturbing outbreak of measles because of the refusal
of many parents to inject their children with toxic chemicals,
the evidence to support this claim is simply not there. Again, I
refer the reader to my article "The Antibody Deception," as well
as to the scientific evidence suggested that vaccines are wholly
Thus, if vaccines are themselves ineffective, then
a lack of vaccines would not exist as the reason for measles
As is demonstrated in my article, "Evidence
Contradicts Whooping Cough Pro-Vaccine Propaganda,"
vaccines are not, in any way, the reason for the reduction of
diseases seen in the latter half of the 20th century.
one need only
take a closer look at the
historical graphs to see that the overwhelming
majority of these diseases were on their way down before the
vaccines were even introduced.
What did begin the reduction and
elimination of disease was an increase in public sanitation,
better access to clean water, and the general rise of living
Indeed, living standards play a vital role in the prevalence or
reduction of disease in a society. Economic depression and war
are quite possibly the two most important trigger forces known
to man that can lead to an epidemic.
During either of these two
situations, the living standards of the vast majority of people
are lowered, access to clean and plentiful food and water are
reduced, sanitation standards are lowered, victims are in a
constant state of stress, and housing conditions are forced to
accommodate more and more people in less clean, smaller spaces.
No rational individual can deny that the entire globe is now
gripped in a worldwide economic depression.
The United States,
Canada, UK, Europe, and the entire Third World has been
suffering through drastic unemployment, austerity, war, and the
slashing of living standards. The UK has been in gradual decline
before the Second World War
and, along with the occasional economic shock, took an even
further nosedive down the economic ladder.
Perhaps the fact that
the British people suffer from systemic unemployment, vastly
reduced living standards, and Malthusian healthcare practices
plays a larger role than faith-based vaccination science could
Furthermore, it is important to note the
levels to which immigration
has been encouraged by Europe and the UK in particular. Indeed,
the doors to Europe have been opened wide to immigrants from
across the world, particularly African and Middle Eastern
The UK itself has multiplied that immigration by
due to an attempt to socially
engineer British culture.
Thus, strapped in the
middle of a worldwide economic depression which has hit Britain
particularly hard, the UK was also strapped with a sudden influx
of immigrants who were either left to their own devices with
little assistance, competed with British workers for jobs, or
allowed to obtain welfare payments.
Regardless, immigrants in
the UK now serve the purpose of acting as a permanent scab
community as well as a permanent underclass.
These immigrants, however, faced with the choice between
extremely low wages, welfare subsistence, or general
unemployment are often packed together in culture-specific
neighborhoods and poor living conditions - the latter being a
recipe for the prevalence of disease. Keep in mind that the
countries from which many of these immigrants come are also the
countries that have experienced such high rates of measles.
In addition to the potential causes of the diseases in question,
it should be noted that the sources from which the CFR map was
compiled does not come entirely from official national reporting
agencies like the U.S. CDC or other relevant agencies (although
some numbers do come from the CDC, WHO, and other
Most of the information presented in the CFR map
comes from reports in mainstream media outlets, whose claims may
or may not match up with the actual numbers of disease
In fact, many of these outlets would not even be
considered credible in the eyes of many mainstream agencies if
the results of the CFR "research" was not in accordance with an
As Sayer Ji points out,
most of these source are,
"simply rebroadcasted official
statements of state - or private medical establishment-sponsored
These media outlets include many operations like PolioEradication.org, a rabidly pro-vaccine organization as well
as what the CFR, LA Times, and other mainstream media outlets
would normally label "unreliable" sources such as
state/county agencies such as
Indeed, the CFR graph is replete with sources such as those
mentioned above - either pro-vaccine organizations or unreliable
reporting agencies. In short, the CFR is relying on
non-evidence-based reports as opposed to the actual numbers.
Very little source material is provided from National Health
Agencies or peer-reviewed journals.
As Sayer Ji
points out, the CFR report,
"is not based on peer-reviewed biomedical evidence
as one would expect, but largely anecdotal evidence
aggregated from unconfirmed and often unverifiable news
"If the CFR's map is
'evidence-based,' why no references to the primary
Clearly nothing more than a major pro-vaccine PR push, the CFR
map actually contains sources that disprove the claims it is
intending to make.
Such is the case with the inclusion of a
report from the
Springfield News Sun,
which actually attributes one of the causes of the cases of
Pertussis to the Pertussis vaccine itself.
While the numbers provided by the CFR can be dissected
endlessly, it is also important to point out that the CFR map
and research was not entirely the result of the labor of the CFR
itself. Indeed, the funding for the PR campaign was provided by
the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
Foundation is widely known for its pro-vaccine efforts, both in
terms of financing and promotion, thus hardly making it a source
In addition to its support for
vaccination campaigns at home and abroad, however, the Gates
Foundation is also known for the widespread damage these
programs have caused.
Please see my article "Coming
Soon: ‘On Demand' Nano-Vaccines Funded By Bill Gates"
in order to get an idea of the fruits of Gates' labor in the
field of vaccination and public health.
Gates has also been
instrumental in the development, support, and maintenance of a
aimed at monitoring "anti-vaccine" groups.
Sayer Ji expertly sums up the recent CFR
propaganda in his own article, "Gates
Foundation/CFR Propaganda Against ‘Anti-Vaccine' Movement
Backfires," when he states,
Unfortunately, such outright Communo-Fascist
rhetoric does not set Hiltzik apart for ridicule and dismissal
as it should.
This is because Hiltzik is merely repeating a line
that represents a mode of thought that has been present for
quite a long time
amongst the elite of society and the
"intellectual class;" namely, that individuals are bereft of
choice in even the most personal matters.
This rhetoric has also
found its way into the minds of the general public due to
increased propaganda efforts aimed at stampeding them into
accepting toxic injections.
It is time for individuals like Hitzlik to remember that medical
procedures and health concerns are indeed a public choice and
that no amount of ignorance or fear on his part is a
justification to remove that choice.
If Hitzlik is so overcome with fear of catching a communicable
disease, then perhaps he should take legitimate steps to boost
his immune system. Even more so, he should take his annual
After all, what should a vaccinated person have to
fear from an unvaccinated one?
