Sad medical personnel What Heath Care Workers Can Do About Hospital Flu Shot Mandates

There are two distinct components to situations where vaccines are mandated. First, determine what your rights actually are (which is often confused with what you think your rights should be). Second, if you don’t like the status of your rights, you must take legislative steps to change them.

In my experience, most hospitals’ religious exemption policies violate federal law by requiring the involvement of a religious official. Healthcare workers can object to state – or employer- mandated flu shots on religious grounds under federal civil rights law. The law defines ‘religion’ so broadly that there are even beliefs one could hold as an atheist that are protected religious beliefs. That said, there are legal pitfalls when applying for a religious exemption; many have failed when they have attempted this on their own. So, like any other important legal matter, if your right to refuse is really important to you, you should consult an experienced attorney. Unfortunately, while there are a lot of attorneys who understand employment law, there are very few who are specifically experienced with vaccine exemptions. Keep that in mind when choosing your attorney.

To the best of my knowledge, I’m the only attorney in the U.S. whose practice is focused *solely on vaccine exemptions and waivers.* Despite this, I charge less  for my services than most other attorneys. This past fall, I worked with approximately 150 healthcare workers in 25 states. The overwhelming majority of exemptions we filed were ultimately successful (keep in mind, past success doesn’t guarantee every future success; every situation is different).  As I continue to learn more, I will continue to identify tactics hospitals are using and how best to address them.

Meanwhile, beyond the need for individual exemptions, when we examine our current legislative rights, most who have concerns about vaccination feel they are inadequate. So, we must all get involved with legislative action to change the laws as to guarantee our right to determine what goes into our body. Legislative success is a tall order when we are opposed by the pharmaceutical industry. Their massive clout and purse pose a formidable challenge.  Furthermore, a lasting, long-term fix will necessarily require exposing the underlying corruption, and that will not be easy.

We will face tremendous resistance. The current system has been designed to maintain the status quo and protect the corruptors. It is important to understand the foe so we can proceed realistically.  As we make progress, desperate measures may be taken by our opposition, including personal attacks and more.  When we speak loudly enough for long enough, though, change will occur. One drop of water won’t do anything to a rock, but persistent, repeated drops wear down mountains. Every drop moves us forward; and every drop inspires other drops to join in. We must be prepared to persist over the long term and pace ourselves to avoid burnout.

I have work with legislative activists across the U.S., but I want to encourage everyone to join the NVIC Advocacy Portal (www.nvicAdvocacy.org). This is the best place in the U.S. to work with others on vaccine legislative activism. It is FREE to join, and takes little time to participate. Everyone must keep doing whatever we can, even if it’s just to be a persistent thorn in the foot, until we can figuratively become a dagger in the heart of the opposition. Failure is not an option. We must work together to reach our goal: Retain the Right to Refuse Vaccination.

CDC Whistleblower Dr. Thompson: “I’ve Stopped Lying” – Willing to Testify on Vaccine Fraud

CDC Whistleblower Dr. Thompson: “I’ve Stopped Lying” – Willing to Testify on Vaccine Fraud

Pin It

The Autism Media Channel has released another video from CDC Whistleblower Dr. William Thompson, confessing to the fact that he was asked by his boss to lie, and that he’s now “stopped lying.”

In the video, Thompson states that the CDC has “become paralyzed” over the vaccine-autism issue. He states that the whole branch of the vaccine division is “becoming more paralyzed, with less and less being done.”

This failure by the CDC to investigate why vaccines cause autism in some children has “put the research 10 years behind” according to Thompson. He states that “because the CDC has not been transparent, we missed 10 years of research.”

Thompson goes on to state that we need Congress to come in and look at all the data related to vaccines and autism that has been previously withheld by the CDC, and have an independent contractor look at it. Thompson makes it clear that he is ready to testify before Congress, if asked to do so.

How the Government has Earned $3.5 BILLION from the Claim that Vaccines Don’t Cause Autism

How the Government has Earned $3.5 BILLION from the Claim that Vaccines Don’t Cause Autism

Few among the American public truly understand just how huge the U.S. vaccine market is. Not only do drug companies reap huge profits from vaccines, so too does the U.S. government.

For example, did you know that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has accumulated $3.5 BILLION in vaccine tax revenue which is currently “sitting” in the Vaccine Injury Compensation Trust Fund?

This trust fund was established in 1988 “to compensate vaccine-related injury or death claims for covered vaccines.” The money in this fund comes from a $0.75 excise tax on vaccines recommended by the CDC.

So why does this Trust Fund have such a high balance, instead of paying medical expenses to families with vaccine damaged children? Probably because the government has decided that vaccines do not cause autism, the most common claim filed in the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program since its inception in 1986.

Boy Held by Chicago Hospital in Medical Kidnapping Case Returns Home

Boy Held by Chicago Hospital in Medical Kidnapping Case Returns Home

Local Fox News affiliate Fox4kc in Kansas City has reported that 17-year-old Isaiah Rider has returned home to Kansas City, even though the State of Illinois still retains his custody rights. Isaiah was released from Luries Children’s Hospital in Chicago where he was being held against his will, and the will of his family. He is reportedly staying with grandparents while his mother fights back against “medical abuse” charges for disagreeing with the hospital’s treatment and wanting to transfer him to a different hospital. Isaiah lost 5 months of his life to confinement in a hospital, and is now anxious to get back to school and resume his life.

Isaiah’s mother Michelle believes they held her son to conduct medical experimentation on his rare disease, Neurofibromatosis. Michelle will return to Chicago Friday to face trial. But in the meantime, at least Isaiah is back home in Kansas City, staying with his grandparents.

Dr. Oz Warns About Mercury in Flu Shots

Dr. Oz Warns About Mercury in Flu Shots

Dr. Oz spent considerable time covering the issue of thimerosal being used as a preservative in the annual flu vaccine. Thimerosal contains mercury, a well-known neuro-toxin. Dr. Oz interviewed Dr. Mark Hyman and former U.S. Senator and Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. on his show to discuss mercury in vaccines.

While it is certainly worthwhile to warn the public of the dangers of mercury in the flu vaccine, Marcella Piper-Terry of VaxTruth.org points out several facts regarding this issue that were not covered during the show, and how Dr. Oz did not exactly get his facts straight on a few things.

Sadly, this is representative of the current level of knowledge concerning vaccines both among the mainstream media and modern-day physicians. Parents of vaccine-damaged children do their homework and research well, and in many cases are more educated on this issue than both the mass media and many doctors.

CDC’s Purchase of $4 Billion of Vaccines a Conflict of Interest in Overseeing Vaccine Safety

CDC’s Purchase of $4 Billion of Vaccines a Conflict of Interest in Overseeing Vaccine Safety

Pin It

Do you trust the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to oversee vaccine safety, when they have an annual budget of over $4 billion to purchase vaccines from drug companies? In 2015, they want to increase that amount by another half a billion dollars.

Dr. Brian Hooker says the CDC should not be trusted to oversee vaccine safety, and after 10 years of fighting legal battles with the CDC via Freedom of Information requests to secure raw data on vaccine safety studies, he now has solid evidence to back up his claim of fraud within the CDC.

In a shocking news story that rocked the online world but was almost totally ignored by the mainstream media a couple of weeks ago, senior vaccine scientist Dr. William Thompson was revealed as a whistleblower within the CDC, admitting that the CDC had withheld information from a key study in 2004 that supposedly showed that the MMR childhood vaccine was safe.

The CDC was forced to issue a response, and Dr. Hooker has now shown that the CDC response is clearly trying to cover up ethical lapses and explain away key data that was omitted from their original study. This data which was hidden from the public for more than 10 years was not favorable towards their own bias and what they wanted the public to believe about vaccines and autism. Dr. Hooker has clearly shown that the CDC has a conflict of interest, and cannot be trusted with research on vaccine safety when it is spending more than $4 billion of taxpayer funds to purchase vaccines from drug manufacturers.

So what’s next? Will this fraud within the CDC be allowed to continue? There are reports that there are other whistleblowers within the CDC that would like to come forward, but are too fearful at this point. Dr. William Thompson is now represented by one of the top whistleblower attorneys in the nation, and has reportedly turned over more than 1000 documents to Congressman Bill Posey.

The pharmaceutical industry is the richest and most powerful political lobby in the world, however. Will there be enough members of Congress to come forward and oppose them? Does the American public even care enough about this issue to take action and threaten lawmakers who refuse to act and remove vaccine safety oversight from the CDC? Will they demand that taxpayer funds NOT be increased by over a half billion dollars next year to fund the purchase of more vaccines that are produced by pharmaceutical companies who are convicted criminals, and whose products have not been proven safe?
