The more Texas Gov.
Rick Perry tries to defend his
decision to sign an executive order in 2007 mandating that all young
girls in Texas receive vaccinations against the human
before being admitted to school, the more he exposes himself as a
lying scoundrel that is unfit to govern his own state, let alone
lead a nation.
During the recent Republican presidential debate in Orlando, Fla.,
Perry tried once again to defend his
infamous Gardasil blunder, this time by telling the
heart-tugging story of a woman he met and got to know who had
He told the audience and
viewers Thursday night that the reason he signed the executive order
was because the woman lobbied him to do so.
"I got lobbied on
this issue," said a calm and composed Perry.
"I got lobbied by a
31 year old young lady who had stage-four cervical cancer. I
spent a lot of time with her. She came by my office. She talked
to me about this program. I readily admitted we should have had
an opt-in (for the mandate) but I don't know what part of opt
out most parents don't get. The fact is I was on the side of
life and I will always be on the side of life as a governor and
as president of the United States."
A charming and sweet
story, really - except for the fact that it is not true.
According to ABC News,
Perry signed the vaccine executive order before he met the young
woman, not after, as he claims. The woman did, according to reports,
lobby in favor of upholding the executive order after it had been
signed (which the legislature eventually overturned), but she did
not play a role in Perry's original signing of it.
Unlike the petty issues that typically bog down the presidential
campaigning process, Perry's Gardasil scandal is gravely
serious and needs to be exposed.
After all, the vaccine
that he pushed is implicated in causing thousands of serious and
permanent injuries, and potentially hundreds of known deaths,
which is a far cry from his empty rhetoric about "being on the side
of life" (http://truthaboutgardasil.org/).
Perry was truthful about one thing, though.
He was lobbied to sign his
But this lobbying appears to have come from
Merck & Co., the manufacturer of Gardasil,
not a heart-wrenching victim of cervical cancer.
The Five Things You Really Need to Know
After the political
tempest about Gardasil and mandatory HPV vaccinations, CNN posted an
article about the things they claimed should be known.
The article contended
that the HPV vaccine controversy was mostly political and that HPV
vaccines were safe. It also noted that we have been vaccinating
children for many years.
For those who prefer the truth over mainstream propaganda, here are
five things you really need to know about
Merck needed a
new cash cow to replace the billions in profits lost due to
Vioxx finally being pulled from the market after it caused
upwards of 50,000 deaths.
Gardasil was selected to become
the new cash cow and, just like happened with Vioxx, Merck
has resorted to rigged and misreported study results and
hidden evidence of harm.
Initial Merck safety tests used a placebo, which was
identical to the Gardasil vaccine minus only the HPV virus
components - instead of a truly benign placebo such as
saline solution. The placebo contained highly toxic
aluminum, polysorbate 80 and sodium borate - items whose
side effects are markedly similar to those being experienced
after Gardasil injections.
Actual trial data for Gardasil reveals that a shocking 73.3
percent of the participants who received Gardasil acquired a
new medical condition ranging from flu-like symptoms to
paralysis. Almost 60% had systemic reactions.

solution would have produced even a fraction of such

of developing precancerous lesions increases by a staggering
The Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) has
reported 45 cases of spontaneous abortion, or miscarriage,
following Gardasil vaccination. At the time the vaccine was
approved, five babies had been born with congenital birth
defects after their mothers had been given Gardasil compared
to zero in a placebo group.
Later reports put the number of
birth defects in the vaccinated group closer to 40.

that Gardasil has been contaminated with a substance many
