Where Did This Herd Immunity Nonsense Come From?

To compliment the Angry Chef's post above:

Where Did This Herd Immunity Nonsense Come From?

“Herd immunity” is the battle cry of vaccinators that gets the attention of medical agency bureaucrats, politicians and the media. It motivates them to legislate vaccination mandates and come down on non-vaccinators, using guilt for not contributing to their concept of the “greater good”.

But does it exist? And where did this notion that’s inspiring the Medical Mafia to feel the need to vaccinate everyone for every mostly minor infectious disease on the planet?

We know by the breakouts occurring with measles, mumps, whooping cough (pertussis) and seasonal flu among heavily vaccinated populations, up to 95% here and 99% in China, that vaccines aren’t really effective at immunizing. In many cases, they cause the symptoms of diseases they’re promoted to protect against.

Even so, the CDC and medical press releases that are filtered through our mainstream media always finger those not vaccinated as the culprits who endangered the mostly vaccinated population.

Herd Immunity Coined Before Vaccines Were Widespread

A John’s Hopkins scientist by the name of Arthur Hedrich coined the term herd immunity during the 1930s after observing after a measles outbreak in Baltimore that infected 55% of the child population, the remaining percentage of children were not infected.

He did a similar study during a Boston measles outbreak in Boston where he pegged the number at 68% infected creating immunity for the remaining 32%. Note that he used measles outbreaks long before measles vaccines were developed.

The vaccinators co-opted the term for vaccination campaigns, and the bar for herd immunity was raised to 95%. That means more vaccine sales without consequence. Since 1986 vaccine makers and medical practitioners cannot be sued directly for adverse reactions. It seems the vaccine makers and CDC want it even higher.

Keep in mind that the infected also became immune from measles for a lifetime after recovering from their episodes. It’s openly admitted that vaccines do not confer life time immunity. That’s why there are booster shots.

Even children or adults who come into contact with others infected but do not exhibit symptoms can acquire long term immunity. I’ve been told that a few decades ago parents took their children to homes of those infected with measles, mumps, or chicken pox to intentionally expose them and allow them to develop natural lifetime immunity, which could develop with or without symptoms.

Vaccination Campaigns Create More Disease

This is what has happened in India, Pakistan, and some African nations where so called “humanitarian efforts” have forced oral polio vaccines (OPVs) on children resulting in outbreaks of “polio like paralysis” and “non-polio acute flaccid paralysis” (NPFP), and Gulliane Barre Syndrome, a form of partial to whole body paralysis that vaccines cause.

The Bill Gates’ and the WHO’s India OPV vaccine push has caused an estimated 53,000 cases of the types of paralysis mentioned while boasting of a “polio free India”. Shoot ‘em up and change the name of the disease, thus “eradicating polio” while causing the worst symptoms of that disease with the vaccines.

The result of the Polio Free India vaccination push left India with the world’s highest incidence of NPFP, which is clinically indistinguishable from polio paralysis but twice as deadly. The incidence of NPAFP was directly proportional to doses of oral polio received.

Yet the vaccine herd immunity card is played to the max. A couple of years ago USA Today editorialized “Vaccine opt-outs put public health at risk.” Here’s a quote from that article, “ … herd immunity works only when nearly the whole herd joins in. When some refuse vaccinations and seek a free ride, immunity breaks down and everyone is more vulnerable.”

Don’t fall for the herd immunity vaccine propaganda. It’s totally and completely false, just as the numbers offered as their proof of vaccines ending diseases. They simply lie. Here’s the real deal.

Bitcoin / Interesting move

Lets see where this goes....

Bitcoin Price Technical Analysis for 05/27/2016 – Huge Upside Breakout!

Bitcoin Price Key Highlights

  • Bitcoin price finally made a strong upside breakout from the ascending triangle consolidation pattern visible on the long-term time frames.
  • This puts bitcoin on track to testing the previous year highs at $500 or even creating new highs.
  • Technical indicators are supporting the current bullish run.

Bitcoin price could be due for a test of the $500 mark as bulls pushed it past the ascending triangle resistance.

Zerohedge chimes in with the Bitcoin move

Bitcoin Surges To 2016 Highs On Rising Chinese Demand; Decouples From Gold


A notable observation about the recent breakout in bitcoin is that the digital currency, which for a period had tracked moves in gold, now appears to have officially decoupled from the precious metal.

GDP revised misses and POSX goes higher. BTC smiles

The monkey hammers are out even with low expectations. POSX on a drum beat mission ignoring just about anything:must be front running mother Yellens talking points. Man trading Bitcoin is so much less stressful. If only the PMs were on a block chain with no naked shorting, life would be good.- Wish I held on to more BTC. -

May 27, 2016 - 9:39am

when is yellen speaking

thats what markets are waiting for

May 27, 2016 - 9:40am

Regarding Bitcoin

Will be interesting to see what new news comes out about Bitcoin this time to stall the rise. Over the last few months, anytime Bitcoin heads north someone comes out and says or does something that scares people away from it.... Just waiting for the "next" shoe to drop to curtail the rise...

Thanks all:

yeah, I just wanted to know what time. Bond market closes at 2 eastern today.

so she will speak as comex closes the June contract normal trading. Funding takes place Tuesday. We have a 3 day weekend. Next week is jobs. We all know the economy is in decline.

Someday somehow this whole thing is going to break and break bad.

May 27, 2016 - 10:15am


Most that I own are somewhere down between the 50 and 30 line on the RSI (some are already at or below 30). MACD's on most are also back to neutral. Also OI is continuing to get washed out of futures pretty much every day. How much longer can the selling last? Not much longer in my opinion. We will probably level out and go sideways for a while through the summer while we consolidate more. The next big move up is this fall IMO. I just added some more shares. Good luck everyone!

My 2 cents worth on miners

The bullion banks were the big buyers of miners because they had a fear that the 1308 point might be broken and they were using them to hedge their potential underwater shorts if a rally occurred because they probably were not sure the feds lies would save them. After they saw that the feds bullshit was able to bring price down they became sellers of miners and that is were we are currently at waiting for PM prices to move back up whenever the specs move back in and the bullion banks quit creating paper again. Who knows when that might be.

May 27, 2016 - 11:23am


I think Rick Rules sage advice should be listened to. He made a great point that in the last bull market, the best winners had two pullbacks of greater than 50%. If you got a great horse and your in for the long haul, just saddle up and ride them out. It doesn't mean you can trade a period of your portfolio.

miners @ronnie55

Ronnie tend to agree but I don't see major + volume change in my miners ? sure are getting whacked though. I expect them to bounce some today before the close, I sure as hell wouldn't be short going into a long memorial weekend ( US markets)

It will be interesting to see how the old Fed Hag's casting of the bones and reading of the entrails affects the market later.

We must be close to the -20% correction touted earlier, so maybe its time for return to the 3 forward - 2 back march onwards and upwards

HUI Strong move off of lows

Less than 1 hour before the Supreme Goon Leader gives her talking points. I kind of think they did the front running already- The monkeys need to go on long holiday right about now. I just hope the HUI can sustain going into the close. So far a nice bounce off of 198.52 intraday low. MINERs are a Resilient group. One can only hope Fellen puts her foot in her mouth at some point.

Nearing the Coveted 2100 level on the S&P, So a rate hike will help it go higher just like December? Yellen will be talking in riddles perhaps confusing the ALGOS. We shall soon find out.

Thx @trx16, but I'm finding the harvard streaming link pretty spotty...
