The Lies and Fallacies
Newsday is a major New
York City "newspaper". It is a typical Brass Check publication.
In the year 1919, Upton Sinclair wrote a best-selling book entitled
The Brass Check: A Study of American Journalism. He found that EVERY
single newspaper in America was owned and controlled by BIG BUSINESS.
Even at that time, there was not ONE independent newspaper and source
of TRUTH for the American people:
OWNING THE PRESS
by which the "Empire of Business" maintains its control
over journalism are four: First, ownership of the papers; second,
ownership of the owners; third, advertising subsidies; and fourth,
direct bribery. By these methods there exists in America a control
of news and of current comment more absolute than any monopoly in
any other industry. This statement may sound extreme, but if you will
think about it you will realize that in the very nature of the case
it must be true. It does not destroy
the steel trust if there are a few independent steel makers, it does
not destroy the money trust if there are a few independent men of
wealth, but it does destroy the news trust if there is a single independent
newspaper to let the cat out of the bag.
"The extent to which outright
ownership of newspapers and magazines has been acquired by our financial
autocracy would cause astonishment if it were set forth in figures.
One could take a map of America and a paint-brush, and make large
smudges of color, representing journalistic ownership of whole districts,
sometimes of whole States, by special interests. The Upper Peninsula
of Michigan would be swept with a yellow smudge--that is copper. The
whole state of Montana would be the same, and the greater part of
Arizona. A black smudge for Southern Colorado, and another in the
Northern part--that is coal. A gray smudge in Western Pennsylvania,
and another in Illinois--that is steel. A green smudge in Wisconsin,
and another in Oregon and Washington--that is lumber. A white smudge
in North Dakota and Minnesota that is the milling trust, backed by
the railroads and the banks. A dirty smudge in central California,
representing "Southern Pacific" and "United Railways,"
now reinforced by "M". and "M." (The Brass
Check, p. 241)."
The Brass Check was a receipt that
a man would receive after paying a cashier at a certain house of ill-fame.
He would then proceed upstairs to the prostitute and hand her the Brass
Check after receipt of her favors. The moral of the story is that there
is more than one kind of prostitution which is symbolized by the Brass
Despite the incredible charges that
Mr. Sinclair brought against ALL the newspapers in America, not ONE
of them dared take him to court . . . because they knew that his charges
against them would be vindicated by any jury of his peers.
Obviously Newsday receives
hugh bribes from the vaccine manufacturers. Why else would they print
the LIES about smallpox without having spent time researching the subject?
a British physician, developed a vaccine against the disease after
noticing that young women who milked cows never got smallpox."
Edward Jenner's biography was written
by his close friend and confidant, John Baron, M.D. The book was published
in 1838. It is out-of- print but is available in many libraries in America.
Even though he tries very, very hard to do well by his good friend,
Jenner's folly is apparent on almost EVERY page. That is probably the
reason why the book is not in print. Here is a quote from that book
about smallpox and milkmaids:
"Many years elapsed before
he had an opportunity of completing his projected experiments in vaccination,
and he encountered numerous difficulties in carrying on the preliminary
part of his inquiry. In the first place,
he had found from his own observation, as well as from that of other
medical gentlemen in the county, that what was commonly called cow
pox, was not a certain preventive of small-pox. This fact damped,
but did not extinguish, his ardour. By prosecuting his investigation
a little farther, this difficulty was obviated. He discovered that
cows were subject to a variety of spontaneous eruptions on their teats;
that they all were capable of communicating sores to the hands of
the milkers; and that whatever sore was so produced, was called, in
the dairy, cow-pox. This was satisfactory information and removed
one great difficulty, and suggested a distinction between these diseases,--one
being called by him the true, the other the spurious, cow-pox ; the
former possessing a specific power over the constitution, the other
not. This impediment was scarcely removed before another of more formidable
aspect arose. He learned that there
were well authenticated instances to prove that when the true cow-pox
broke out among the cattle at a dairy, and was communicated to the
milkers, even they had subsequently had small-pox. Tidings of this
kind, which seemed to render farther investigation useless, checked
for a season his fond hopes; but resistance and difficulty only augmented
his energy, and he resumed his labours with redoubled zeal.
The result was most happy, and enabled him to take that great step
in the progress of his inquiry, without which none of its anticipated
advantages could have been realized.
"On the former occasion he
discovered that there were two distinct affections, both vulgarly
denominated cow-pox; that one gave protection against smallpox, that
the other did not: but when he found that what he concluded to be
the true cow-pox itself could not be depended on, he felt much perplexed.
Most men would, at this stage, have
abandoned the investigation in despair. It was not so with Jenner.
He conceived that in such cases there must be some ascertainable cause
for the deviation from the ordinary effects of the disease. It occurred
to him that the virus of the cow-pox itself might have undergone some
change whereby its specific virtues were lost; that, in its deteriorated
state, it might have been incapable of producing a local disease upon
the hand of the milker, but no such influence upon the constitution
as is requisite to render the individual unsusceptible of variolous
contagion; so that the same cow might one day communicate a genuine
and efficacious preventive, and the next, nothing but a local affection
which could exert no beneficial influence whatever on the constitution.
This most ingenious and forcible reasoning, supported by analogies
drawn from the well-known properties of the virus of small-pox itself,
received an ample confirmation from experience, and was the basis
on which some of the fundamental rules for the practice of vaccination
were founded. It was ascertained that it was only in a certain state
of the pustule that virus was afforded capable of imparting to the
constitution its protecting power; that matter taken after this period
might excite a local disease, but not of such a sort as to render
the individual proof against the effects of variolous contagion. (Life
of Edward Jenner, by John Baron, Vol. I, pages 131-132.)"

Sounds confusing: spurious cowpox,
genuine cowpox. Cows giving genuine protection one day and false protection
the next. It's all udder destruction.
Wonder if there is spurious smallpox
and genuine smallpox too. It all sounds like Jesuit double-talk. Remember

Briton confronts "Dr" Jenner
"He talked of the
first effects of his discovery on some of his sapient (wise,discerning)
townsfolk. One lady, of no mean influence among them, met him soon
after the publication of his Inquiry. She accosted him in this form,and
in the true Gloucestershire dialect. "So, your book is out at
last. Well! I can tell you that there be'ant a copy sold in our town;
nor sha'n't neither, if I can help it." On another occasion,
the same notable dame having heard some rumours of failures in vaccination,
came up to the doctor with great eagerness, and said, " Shan't
us have a general inoculation (i.e. smallpox inoculation) now ? (Life
of Edward Jenner, vol. 2, p. 304)."
Briton lived in the same town as Jenner and knew him personally. It
was foreign nations that LOVED his vaccination. Closer to home the people
knew the real "Dr. Jenner and hated his doctrine. If everybody
thought like this Lady, we would have a vaccine free, healthy world

Can Smallpox Come Back?
A DREADED DISEASE Wednesday
Oct 30, 2002
By Delthia Ricks
Imagine yourself as a teenager about 110 years ago.
Your parents adore you. But if you got sick with smallpox,
a highly contagious, dreaded and deadly virus, the people
around you might have become very upset and frightened. The
disease killed 30 percent of all unvaccinated people who were
exposed to it.
Depending on where you lived, it is likely that you would
be sent to something called a "pest house."
Diseases were a threat to entire communities, and smallpox
was one of the most feared. That's why many communities built
"pest houses," which were usually just shacks. In England,
some of these houses have been preserved. Historians say they
were used to isolate people infected with the worst contagious
diseases, such as plague, tuberculosis, and, of course, smallpox.
In some families, several people might have been vaccinated
against smallpox, and if you were lucky enough to have had
a mom and dad already immunized, you might have been able
to avoid the pest house by being quarantined -- isolated --
Even though the disease was wiped from the face of the earth
decades ago, top U.S. officials now are discussing the possibility
of vaccinating thousands of health care workers against the
virus. The fear is that bioterrorists could bring smallpox
back. A panel of immunization experts says 500,000 doctors,
nurses and other health care workers should be vaccinated
so they could aid people in case of an attack.
Bioterrorists use germs as a weapon, to sicken and harm people.
Some activists are so afraid of bioterrorism that they think
the smallpox vaccine should be offered to anyone who wants
it. Federal health officials say mass vaccination without
evidence of an attack is unnecessary -- and it would be dangerous
for some. The vaccine has life-threatening side effects in
15 of every 1 million vaccinated.
Smallpox, which could be transmitted by touch or by coughing,
caused a horrible fever. You would be so drenched in perspiration
and so weak from being sick that it would be difficult to
lift your head from your pillow. And if that wasn't enough,
dozens of pus-filled blisters would form on your body, even
on the palms of your hands and the soles of your feet. The
disease often left its victims pockmarked or brain-damaged
-- if not dead.
A vaccine for smallpox was developed by a British physician,
Edward Jenner, in 1796, and reported to the world in 1798
-- but it took 151 years to eradicate the disease in the United
States and 31 more before it was stamped out globally.
Fortunately, smallpox was declared eradicated -- wiped out
-- in 1980 by the World Health Organization, know as WHO.
This agency tries to eliminate diseases by vaccinating people.
When WHO started its smallpox eradication progran in 1967,
15 million people in the world were catching smallpox, and
2 million were dying. In the 20th century, smallpox killed
500 million people.
The last U.S. case was in 1949, and routine smallpox vaccination
ended in this country in 1972. When smallpox was eradicated,
stocks of the virus were sent to the United States and the
former Soviet Union. Defense experts believe some of the Soviet's
supplies went to rogue governments. National defense experts
think such governments -- or terrorists with access to the
supplies -- may want to use the virus as a weapon the way
someone used anthrax bacteria last year to sicken and kill
Now that smallpox is back in the news, the federal government
is stocking up on vaccines and plans to have enough available
by the end of the year to immunize every man, woman and child
in the United States, just in case they are needed.
A virus such as smallpox is an invisible scrap of protein
with an infectious wad of genes. Some viruses are harmless,
others are deadly. Smallpox is one of the deadliest.
Even though top officials in President George W. Bush's administration
say there is not much of a chance of the United States being
attacked with a virus, health officials at the federal Centers
for Disease Control and Prevention are taking no chances.
Doctors at the CDC are studying the vaccine and reading reports
from long ago when smallpox was a threat in the world. As
part of the government's preparation, they are conducting
experiments, called clinical trials, using the smallpox vaccine.
In these experiments, people are given the vaccine to see
if it will protect them. So far, studies show that, not only
does the vaccine work, it can be diluted and still protect
people from the disease. A clinical trial involving children
is supposed to take place before the end of the year. Doctors
in California and Ohio will give the vaccine to kids to see
how well they respond to the immunization. Doctors know that
you're fully immunized after your vaccination when, in a week
or two, a scab forms on your arm.
Bush must decide soon who should receive vaccinations first
and who should be discouraged from getting them. These might
include people whose immune systems have been weakened by
cancer or infections or serious skin conditions, such as eczema.
It took 182 years for the disease to be wiped from the planet.
Experts say only terrorism can bring it back.
All of the credit for the discovery of the smallpox vaccine
goes to Edward Jenner. In fact, the 1796 smallpox vaccine
was the world's first.
Jenner, a British physician, developed a vaccine
against the disease after noticing that young women who milked
cows never got smallpox.
Cows got cowpox, and that disease could be transmitted to
people who milked them. Milkmaids routinely got cowpox infections.
Ugly bumps would develop on their hands. But even though these
bumps were ugly, they were not harmful.
So, Jenner started infecting people with cowpox and found
that he could prevent smallpox.
The word "vaccine" is derived from the word "vaccinus," the
Latin word for cows, because the first vaccine was based on
cowpox. If you know Spanish, you know that the word for cow
is vaca. In French, it's vache.
Smallpox got its name centuries ago to distinguish its small
crusty pustules from the much larger ones caused by syphilis,
a sexually transmitted disease. The skin eruption caused by
syphilis was called "greatpox."
William Shakespeare often used the term "pox" as a form of
profanity. In his day (1564-1616), the term was widely used
in anger, as in: "A pox on your house!" In science, poxviruses
are any of a vast number of microbes that infect a wide range
of species. They include fowlpox, monkeypox, and swinepox,
to name a few.
