SMALLPOX VACCINE RESULTS ARE IN

By Jon Rappoport

DECEMBER 9. The first returns are in on the smallpox vaccine. A recent multi-center US government clinical trial on 200 "young adults" has been completed.

MSNBC reports. The volunteers who got the shot were VERY healthy to begin with. One researcher, Kathy Edwards, called them the "cr?me de la cr?me."

Okay? So get this. "Yet when she [Edwards] inoculated them with smallpox vaccine, arms swelled, temperatures spiked and panic spread [at Baylor University]. It was the same at clinics in Iowa, Tennessee, and California."

Stats: After the shot, one-third of the volunteers missed at least a day of work or school. 75 out of 200 experienced high fever. "Several were put on antibiotics because physicians worried that their blisters signaled a bacterial infection."

Wow.

And look, smallpox is a VIRUS, and antibiotics DON'T WORK against viruses. So, in essence, the researchers were inferring that the vaccine SUPPRESSED THE IMMUNE SYSTEMS of the volunteers --- thus allowing bacterial infections to bloom suddenly---OR the vaccine was contaminated with bacteria to begin with.

Researcher Edwards, who headed up the study, said, "I can read all day about it [the adverse effects of the vaccine], but seeing it is quite impressive. The reactions we saw were really quite remarkable."

When a researcher makes a comment like this, you know some very bad things are happening.

AND THIS WAS A POPULATION OF EXTREMELY HEALTHY VOLUNTEERS. YOUNG ADULTS WHO SHOULD BE AT THE VERY PEAK OF LIFE, WITH THEIR IMMUNE DEFENSES FULLY INTACT.

Of course, this story didn't get much play in the press. But the handwriting is on the wall. Anyone can see what'll happen if they start shooting up people by the millions with the vaccine. For example, people who don't qualify as severely immune suppressed by any obvious assessment, but still do, in fact, have reduced immune capacity---AND THAT IS A WHOLE LOT OF PEOPLE.---these folks will be AT GREAT RISK from the vaccine.

This government study is KEY. Because later on, they will try to cover up the devastating effects of the vaccine. They will lie, distort, omit. But right now, here it is. Out in the open. The results, for all to see.

Let me tell you something. The CDC WANTED to release the results of this study. They wanted to go on the record now, before the stuff really hits the fan. They are very frightened of being nailed for killing people with the vaccine.

Shrew

The URL given above just leads to a repeat of the article at another website. No corroboration or other sources are given. I am not willing to accept on faith that this information is true without a lot more evidence.

Smallpox is in fact a serious disease that used to kill millions. The Administration may or may not be manufacturing a scare. If they are, we don't need to help them.

Remember, fear makes tyrants and terrorists happy.

There is extensive coverage of smallpox and vaccine issues at the Centers for Disease Control site at  http://www.bt.cdc.gov/agent/smallpox/index.asp. It includes descriptions of what reactions can be expected after vaccination.

(Yes, this is a government site, but don't avoid it because of that. The US Government actually puts out a lot of very good information, sometimes in spite of itself. Take a look at the US Government Bookstore at SW 1st & Jefferson in downtown Portland, and see for yourself. You'll find propaganda, of course, but you will also find a lot of invaluable historical and scientific material.)
