Shock Finding: 30 Percent Of US Military Damaged By Anthrax Vaccine

Anthrax vaccines

The topic of vaccines tends to inspire strong feelings in people one way or the other, and the admissions made by a CDC whistleblower in the recent documentary VAXXED certainly added fuel to the fire. However, one aspect of the vaccine debate that many people can agree on is that forcing experimental vaccines on anyone is a questionable practice at best.

In one of the most egregious examples of this, the FDA used its authority to force American military personnel to get an experimental anthrax vaccine while a civil lawsuit challenging the authority of the Department of Defense to mandate unapproved vaccines was pending.

Since 1998, countless service personnel have reported becoming ill after being given a series of vaccines for anthrax before Middle East deployment. Those who refused to get the jab faced punishments including discharge.

According to MintPress News, 30 percent of those in the military who received the vaccine ended up with vaccine damage referred to as Gulf War Syndrome, and the issues caused were career-ending for some, particularly pilots.

MintPress News cites the University of Minnesota’s Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy’s 2002 report, which says that the mandatory anthrax vaccines caused many Air National Guard and Air Force Reserve members to transfer or leave the military altogether.

85 percent of troops noted adverse reactions

Data from a survey by the General Accounting Office (GAO) of Congress showed that 85 percent of the troops who were subjected to anthrax shots experienced adverse reactions, which is significantly higher than the 30 percent the manufacturer claimed. The survey involved a random sample of more than 1,200 guard and reserve personnel.

This prompted the GAO to recommend that the DoD institute an “active surveillance program for vaccine reactions.” According to GAO estimates, 77 percent of aircrew who received the shot would not have done so if they had been given a choice.

Symptoms and concerns brushed aside

Gulf War Syndrome is the name given to the set of symptoms experienced by military personnel involved in the Gulf War, and it includes chronic symptoms such as cognitive problems, muscle pain, fatigue, diarrhea, and rashes. Adding insult to injury, the military has called it an “emotional ailment” despite its measurable physical manifestations.

While some higher-ups have tried to explain Gulf War Syndrome as the result of conditions on the ground, soldiers who fought there from Israel, Egypt and Kuwait did not end up suffering from it. Interestingly, those soldiers did not receive Anthrax vaccines.

One third of vets afflicted

The National Academy of Sciences reports that more than one third of vets in the first Gulf War suffer from the ailment, and a 2009 study in the Journal of Inorganic Biochemistry suggested that the main culprit could be aluminum hydroxide, which was an adjuvant in the anthrax vaccine.

Watchdog Audit Finds Billions Wasted On Obamacare Fiasco

Total Incompetent Government Let Anyone Sign Up With No Proof Of Anything

There is now yet another reason to be disgusted by the ongoing fiasco known as Obamacare: A new report from the Government Accountability Office has concluded that the federal government’s failure to properly monitor the eligibility of enrollees may have cost taxpayers billions in fraudulent payments.

The problem stems from the inability of the system used by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to verify “inconsistencies” in the data it receives from the three agencies (IRS, DHS and SSA) responsible for determining the eligibility of applicants under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA).

From the report:

“GAO found CMS did not have an effective process for resolving inconsistencies for individual applicants for the federal Health Insurance Marketplace (Marketplace). For example, according to GAO analysis of CMS data, about 431,000 applications from the 2014 enrollment period, with about $1.7 billion in associated subsidies for 2014, still had unresolved inconsistencies as of April 2015—several months after close of the coverage year. In addition, CMS did not resolve Social Security number inconsistencies for about 35,000 applications (with about $154 million in associated subsidies) or incarceration inconsistencies for about 22,000 applications (with about $68 million in associated subsidies).”

The report warned that these unresolved inconsistencies leave the CMS vulnerable to making fraudulent subsidy payments to ineligible enrollees.

The GAO went undercover to test the system; it created 12 fictitious phone and online applicants during 2014, 11 of which received payments throughout the year, “even though GAO sent fictitious documents, or no documents, to resolve application inconsistencies.”

These fake enrollees received around $30,000 in advance premium tax credits, as well as “eligibility for lower costs at time of payment.” The GAO noted that although the subsidies were paid to healthcare insurers and not directly to enrollees, “they nevertheless represent a benefit to [fraudulent] consumers and a cost to the government.”

No one minding the store

When the GAO looked at how the CMS monitors fraud, it found that the CMS relies on a document processing contractor to report on instances of possible fraud, while not requiring the contractor to have any viable fraud detection capability.

In other words, this is like hiring a blind policeman to catch speeding vehicles.

The GMO Scrapbook – The FDA Wants To Monitor…

I had to blog about this one, because when one talks about “too little, too late,” this fits the bill, and it’s right up there with the Magic Bullet, with the nineteen Arab terrorists managed to pull of 9/11 in such a way that it was “coincidentally” during several drills mimicking aspects of the operation, and finally, right up there with “Hi, we’re the government. We’re here to help you.”  This was found by Mr. J.C., and since it concerns the topic of glyphosate, the nasty ingredient in so much pesticide and in some GMOs, I had to pass it along, if for the sheer bouts of hysterical laughter that it will provoke in anyone who has been following the GMO story:

FDA to Start Testing for Glyphosate in Food

One has to give credit to Time magazine for reporting on this story, since the GMO issue rarely makes any headway with the American lamestream media. Here, the two opening paragraphs say it all, and additionally, constitute a major reason why so many American’s are simply fed up with their “goobernment”:

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the nation’s chief food safety regulator, plans to start testing certain foods for residues of the world’s most widely used weed killer after the World Health Organization’s cancer experts last year declared the chemical a probable human carcinogen.

The FDA’s move comes amid growing public concern about the safety of the herbicide known as glyphosate, and comes after the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) rebuked the agency for failing to do such assessments and for not disclosing that short-coming to the public.

Now, besides the amusing scene of FedGov, Inc., having one department of its increasingly tyrannical sprawl rebuking another, is the idea that the FDA would be an impartial administrator in this instance anyway. We all know how the major agribusiness companies like IG. Farbensanto were able to buy influence during the first Bush administration (geez, what is it about that hideous family?) and under the principal of “substantial equivalence” were able to get a dramatic relaxation of regulations on testing of their GMO products. After all, if it looks like corn and tastes like corn, that must mean it’s “substantially equivalent” to just plain old corn, and therefore, we don’t need to do all that nasty testing, and beside, we already have, and here’s the results, and it’s perfectly safe, see?  F. William Engdahl’s Seeds of Destruction, documents the utter fiction of this idea, which, incidentally, was conveniently jettisoned when it came time to file patents for their GMO crops, and pursue unlucky farmers in a variety of draconian ways. Engdalh also copiously documented the revolving door between “agribusiness” and the FDA, to the extent that the latter was but a department of the businesses that really ran it.

U.S. FDA FINALLY Shamed into Testing for Monsanto’s Glyphosate Herbicide in Food

Sure, consumers are concerned about eating glyphosate. Wouldn’t you be? If 75% of air and rain samples tested contain glyphosate, it is highly likely that the ‘probable’ human carcinogen is also in our food supply. Now that the World Health Organization is calling a spade a spade, it appears the US Food and Drug Administration is forced to start testing food for glyphosate. [1]

The American public has been practically begging the agency to stop using the people as guinea pigs with a likely carcinogen. But only after the US Government Accountability Office (GAO) rebuked the FDA for failing to conduct assessments and failing to disclose risks to the public is the agency actually going to do something about it…or will it?

 This is the very same agency which approved GMO salmon, initially without a label, and declared the GMO fish just as safe as non-GMO varieties.

The GAO says that it found multiple areas of fault in the FDA’s pesticide residue testing program, specifically citing a failure to test for glyphosate.
