Thimerosal Cover-up

leave a comment »

 

[Posted Jun 20, 2005 12:00 AM]

In June 2000, a group of top government scientists and health officials gathered for a meeting at the isolated Simpsonwood conference center in Norcross, Georgia. Convened by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the meeting was held at this Methodist retreat center, nestled in wooded farmland next to the Chattahoochee River, to ensure complete secrecy. The agency had issued no public announcement of the session — only private invitations to fifty-two attendees. There were high-level officials from the CDC and the Food and Drug Administration, the top vaccine specialist from the World Health Organization in Geneva and representatives of every major vaccine manufacturer, including GlaxoSmithKline, Merck, Wyeth and Aventis Pasteur. All of the scientific data under discussion, CDC officials repeatedly reminded the participants, was strictly “embargoed.” There would be no making photocopies of documents, no taking papers with them when they left.

The federal officials and industry representatives had assembled to discuss a disturbing new study that raised alarming questions about the safety of a host of common childhood vaccines administered to infants and young children. According to a CDC epidemiologist named Tom Verstraeten, who had analyzed the agency’s massive database containing the medical records of 100,000 children, a mercury-based preservative in the vaccines — thimerosal — appeared to be responsible for a dramatic increase in autism and a host of other neurological disorders among children. “I was actually stunned by what I saw,” Verstraeten told those assembled at Simpsonwood, citing the staggering number of earlier studies that indicate a link between thimerosal and speech delays, attention-deficit disorder, hyperactivity and autism. Since 1991, when the CDC and the FDA had recommended that three additional vaccines laced with the preservative be given to extremely young infants — in one case, within hours of birth — the estimated number of cases of autism had increased fifteenfold, from one in every 2,500 children to one in 166 children.

Even for scientists and doctors accustomed to confronting issues of life and death, the findings were frightening. “You can play with this all you want,” Dr. Bill Weil, a consultant for the American Academy of Pediatrics, told the group. The results “are statistically significant.” Dr. Richard Johnston, an immunologist and pediatrician from the University of Colorado whose grandson had been born early on the morning of the meeting’s first day, was even more alarmed. “My gut feeling?” he said. “Forgive this personal comment — I do not want my grandson to get a thimerosal-containing vaccine until we know better what is going on.”

But instead of taking immediate steps to alert the public and rid the vaccine supply of thimerosal, the officials and executives at Simpsonwood spent most of the next two days discussing how to cover up the damaging data. According to transcripts obtained under the Freedom of Information Act, many at the meeting were concerned about how the damaging revelations about thimerosal would affect the vaccine industry’s bottom line. “We are in a bad position from the standpoint of defending any lawsuits,” said Dr. Robert Brent, a pediatrician at the Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children in Delaware. “This will be a resource to our very busy plaintiff attorneys in this country.” Dr. Bob Chen, head of vaccine safety for the CDC, expressed relief that “given the sensitivity of the information, we have been able to keep it out of the hands of, let’s say, less responsible hands.” Dr. John Clements, vaccines advisor at the World Health Organization, declared that “perhaps this study should not have been done at all.” He added that “the research results have to be handled,” warning that the study “will be taken by others and will be used in other ways beyond the control of this group.”

In fact, the government has proved to be far more adept at handling the damage than at protecting children’s health. The CDC paid the Institute of Medicine to conduct a new study to whitewash the risks of thimerosal, ordering researchers to “rule out” the chemical’s link to autism. It withheld Verstraeten’s findings, even though they had been slated for immediate publication, and told other scientists that his original data had been “lost” and could not be replicated. And to thwart the Freedom of Information Act, it handed its giant database of vaccine records over to a private company, declaring it off-limits to researchers. By the time Verstraeten finally published his study in 2003, he had gone to work for GlaxoSmithKline and reworked his data to bury the link between thimerosal and autism…..

The Worshipful Society of Apothecaries

leave a comment »

 Flag of the City of London ( and the flag of the Red Cross? ). This emblem was depicted on the shields and tunics of the Knights Templar who also used the insignia of the Skull-and-Bones. The Knights Hospitaller, who were chartered at the same time as the Templars, used an inverse (red field, white cross) version of the same design. A truncated-cross depiction of London’s flag is the Red Cross flag, identical to the inverted field of Switzerland’s flag. Are the flags telling us their heritage?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Knights_Hospitaler

The Knights Templar claimed Jerusalem as their capitol after capturing it in 1099. During the years of occupation,  lasting nearly a century, Templars learned the arts of alchemy and mathematics which were highly developed in Arabia and Persia, based on thousands of years of eastern development. After expulsion from the mid-east, and subsequently France, the center of Templar practices moved to the UK c. 1300, with divisions operating in other countries as chartered brotherhoods under new names, principally as Freemasonic orders.  Two versions of the Knights Hospitaller were reorganized as the Knights of Malta and the Knights of Bohemia. http://www.smom-za.org/bohemia.htm

The Hospitallers were a military organization and the largest (papally) chartered order to evolve from the Crusades. The central European chapters were mostly abandoned as the Hospitallers focused their resources in the Mediterranean, but regional groups took up their mission and created their own fraternities. This is the claim for the Knights of Bohemia, founded in Prague in 1233 by Princess Agnes. The Bohemians were also called The Dragon Knights and chose a red six-pointed star as their insignia, later placed below a Maltese Cross on their standard.

The six-pointed star (of Solomon/star of David) adorns late medieval architecture and chateaux belonging to families who were likely members of this order, practitioners of alchemy and medicine in the larger complex of Crusades-era “corporations” that swore allegiance to the preservation of Jerusalem, the Holy Land. In the 1300s, the Hospitallers were forced to move their center to Rhodes, Sicily, and Malta respectively, while the seat of the pope was in France. The Hospitallers took on the mantle of policing the Mediterranean on behalf of “Christian” trade protection, although after the plague struck in the 1340s, the ensuing disorganization and loss of European wealth caused the seagoing Hospitallers to turn to piracy, directed against their historic enemies –Islam and the Turks– and in time as they contracted out naval services as mercenaries, against whomever their benefactors saw fit.

Over the next two centuries, stabilization of trade and the navies to protect it led to the creation of merchant guilds, from where we get the Worshipful Companies and Societies. The words ‘merchant’, ‘mercenary’ and even the name “Merck” have roots in this seafaring activity. European Maritime law began its development from the time of the Crusades,  distinct from its Near Eastern predecessors, based on the ‘privateering’ engaged in by the various Orders of Knights. 

A strange and curious fact about the founding of the Knights of Bohemia is that the year of its charter, 1233, corresponds to The Last Judgement which was to take place in that same year (technically at the end of 1232)according to Hebrew reckoning (in a lunar calendar system), derived from a belief that the World was to last 4900 years from the first year of Creation; designated as a formula of 10 X 490 from a Creation point in 3668 BCE; the number 10 representing 10 “world weeks” (each lasting 490 years) with a significant religious event marking the beginning of each world week. Calendrical revisions occurred several times in Hebrew dating calculations; differences between ‘solar’ and ‘lunar’ reckoning made important distinctions in the various factions that marked internal divisions in Judaism and distinguished early Christianity as a ‘solar’ cult. Was the lunar reckoning adopted by the Dragon Knights an indication of who they were?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Worshipful_Society_of_Apothecaries

Apothecaries Hall, London

The guild of apothecaries was originally part of the Company of Grocers, first called the Guild of Pepperers in 1180 (in the reign of Henry II Plantagenet, a Templar) and the first trade-guild established along with the Mercers. The Grocers were charged with regulating the purity, weights and measure of spices. Grocers received a Royal charter in 1428, and the Apothecaries received their own charter under James I (James Stuart the VI of Scotland) in 1617 –the same James of the King James Bible who was also known as the Hammer of Witches. In this time of history, the medical needs of the people were largely fufilled by ‘witches’ and midwives who were people of great accomplishment, unforunately suffering the rigors of the Inquisition that were extended to them, directly and indirectly, as the merchant guilds grew powerful.

In the City of London, the Temple buildings belonging to the Knights Templar became the property of the Knights Hospitaller when the Templar order was abolished in 1312. These buildings along the Thames were called the Inns of the Court, used for the study of Law and maintained a special jurisdiction of their own as “extra-parochial”, or outside the parish. In the reign of Henry VIII, in dispute with Papal authority which led to the founding of the Episcopal Anglican Church, the Catholic order of the Hospitallers was dissolved and their property was forfeited to the King. No new hospitals were built for almost two centuries although the City of London and the Inns of Court were said to flourish in the reign of Elizabeth. It was a high time for alchemy.

The barely visible image in the drawing of the Apothecaries crest on the Hall in London details a shield with a female figure standing in front of a roaring dragon with her back to it, bow in her lowered left hand, arrow in her raised right with a snake’s head hovering above; on either side of the shield, salient (leaping) unicorns, and above the shield and snake, what looks like a rhinocerous –visible here http://www.apothecaries.org.uk/downloads/Prog_Phil_09-10_V21minus_exam_piece.pdf

And below is “the White Unicorn House and Apothecary” on the Square of the Republic in Plzen, Czechoslovakia

The unicorn was incorporated into the Scots Coat of Arms at about the same time as the Templars took refuge there, in the first decade of 1300 and may be significant to the Apothecaries emblem, established by James, the first Scot to sit on the English throne. Unicorn lore, while mixing many symbolic lineages, was an ancient lunar symbol and, as seen with the Lion, a potent reference for alchemy, merging the lunar and solar. Its horn was believed to neutralize poison and is an occult representation of the Sword, for the Brotherhood of the Sword; the medieval Dragon Knights. The Apothecaries crest merges these symbols with the image of Artemis the Archer; virgin goddess of the hunt and sister “moon” to Apollo “sun” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Artemis. Artemis is also a symbol of the Bow Star, Sirius, a deeply occult image of twinning that which is hidden.

Colony Collapse Disorder –Bees Knees and Polio

leave a comment »

Israeli Acute Paralysis Virus

Several bee viruses have been discovered: Acute Bee Paralysis Virus (ABPV), Kashmir Bee Virus (KBV), Black Queen Cell Virus (BQCV), Chronic Paralysis Virus (CPV), Cloudy Wing Virus (CWV), Deformed Wing Virus (DWV) and Sacbroodvirus (SBV). These viruses belong to the Picornaviridae superfamily; the type-virus of which is the poliovirus causing poliomyelitis (infantile paralysis). Dicistroviridae is a family of viruses within the picorna-like viruses. ABPV, KBV and BQCV are bee-infecting dicistroviruses.

In the year 2000, Mr. Yossi Slabestzki, Chief Officer for Apiculture at the Israeli Extension Service, approached Professor Ilan Sela, a virologist, to investigate a sudden appearance of bee mortality in Israel. A few years later, a new virus of the same dicistroviridae family was isolated and characterized from dead bees. From the available data at that time, this new virus was found to be closely related to Acute Bee Paralysis Virus (ABPV), an already known bee virus and was termed Israeli Acute Paralysis Virus.

As published in September 2007 (Cox-Foster et al, Science, 2007), among pathogens, IAPV is the most consistent indicator of Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) Kasmir Bee Virus (KBV). At least two strains of IAPV are present in the United States (Palacios et al. (2008) J. Virology 82:6209-6217). One lineage is most prevalent in apiaries from the Eastern and Northwestern U.S. The second strain is more frequent in sampled colonies from the Western U.S. This strain matches more closely to several isolates sequenced to date from Australian package bees. The strain of IAPV found in Israel that defined this newly described species, is distinct from those in the U.S. and Australia. Extensive variation in the genetic sequence of the virus suggests that the virus is rapidly changing in the U.S. or has been present as multiple lineages for some time. As of Fall, 2007, IAPV was found in at least 19 states across the U.S.                           read more….. http://www.beeologics.com/iapv.asp

    Media Citizen’s blog is dedicated to functioning as a rolling journal to chronicle the corporate control which has overtaken governments and people’s lives in the fascist conquest of world populations. As such, special attention is given to pharmaceutical and scientific entities which have melded their interests with Defense and Public Health agencies, achieving the long-held objective of  eugenic biological manipulation. Subjects included in these pages deal with the history and growth of these related industries and their impact on governments, policy and human health.
