CDC lies: Measles outbreaks confirmed among children already vaccinated

January 27, 2015 by legitgov

CDC lies: Measles outbreaks confirmed among children already vaccinated | 13 Jan 2015 | Official reports are claiming that unvaccinated children are to blame [for the Disneyland measles outbreak] because some of those who contracted the measles hadn't been vaccinated. Some of them had been vaccinated, of course, and the original source of the disease has yet to be determined. But like always, it is automatically those individuals who choose not to inject their bodies with a vaccine linked to brain damage and autism -- and that's been shown to spread the measles -- that must have triggered the outbreak. The interesting thing about this latest measles outbreak is that the media is parading it around as evidence that not getting vaccinated triggers disease outbreaks, even though the original source of the disease is unknown. It is entirely possible that a vaccinated person spread the disease to both vaccinated and unvaccinated people, which in and of itself shows the lack of effectiveness of vaccines.

Its commander, Andriy Biletsky, is believed to be in charge of two neo-Nazi political groups, and has been elected to serve in Ukraine's parliament while the battalion itself has been integrated into the country's National Guard. Differences between Ukraine's far right groups have been put aside as the fighting continues, though one fighter – a teacher and psychologist – told Kemp that to become an Azov fighter you had to be "a proper white man. You can be nationalist, you can be fascist or national socialist. It's not the main thing. Our future is a war - a war with Russia."
