Some are calling this “‘compromise’, because most things in Montpelier are about ‘compromise’.” I disagree.
Compromise between whose interests? Why should our elected representatives compromise our interests for the sake of corporations, for the 1% who already make a killing here in Vermont?
But—I imagine—the corporate money is too good to pass up. Not to mention federal block grants, handouts to localities in return for giving even greater subsidies to corporations (out of our paycheck tax withholding). This is a machine politician’s measure of success… selling out his people in return for those grants.
The Vermont Legislature keeps trying to close down schools (more on Act 155 in a later article), but handouts to corporations since 1998 total $231,328,428. These are tax subsidies, loopholes and outright payments from our tax withholding. You can find this information yourself on the Subsidy Tracker at Good Jobs First.
Monsanto defeated the second Vermont GMO labeling bill this year, by combined threats and lobbying. According to the Union of Concerned Scientists, Monsanto spent $8 million on lobbying efforts in 2010 alone, and gave more than $400,000 in political contributions. Monsanto also spent $120 million on advertising, to convince consumers that genetically engineered foods are safe—despite overwhelming scientific evidence showing otherwise.
In 2002, Shumlin killed off the first GMO Labeling Bill. The Rutland Herald documented his sellout: “…A measure mandating labels on genetically modified seeds and food, liability for the purveyors of the technology and registration of the location of transgenic crops with town clerks flew through the Senate Agriculture Committee. But its good fortunes ended in the Finance Committee. Democratic Sen. Peter Shumlin voted with Republicans to table the bill.”
“Shumlin told Sen. Cheryl Rivers (D), then chair of the Agriculture Committee, that he was “unwilling to support a bill requiring labeling of genetically modified foods because the Democrats had already lost the contributions of pharmaceutical companies, and he was not willing to sacrifice contributions from the food industry…”
My opponent, Claire Ayer, backed S.199, a bill introduced by Sen. Mullin (20 grand from out-of-state in the 2010 election), which attacked the very concept of informed consent. On behalf of Big Pharma. I am running against Claire Ayer to protect your rights and liberties, which are not for sale.
I’ve set the stage, connecting forced vaccinations and GMOs. Now you know why the machine incumbents need to go. Start with the Senate, there’s just thirty seats, it can be done. It won’t be easy, they have wads of out-of-State money and influence behind them. Let’s show them that real Vermonters can’t be bought through out-of-State influence peddling.

The biotech industry has had to use corruption and threats to keep secret what they continue to claim is safe and “substantially equivalent” to normal food.
(MONTPELIER, VT) - Vermont was slammed by the biotech industry twice this month.
They were hit the first time when 90% of the population wanted GMOs in their food labeled but the governor would not sign a bill requiring this because the biotech giant Monsanto threatened to sue the state. Monsanto thus stopped “informed consent” around food, leaving people without crucial information needed to decide what goes into their and their children’s bodies, and are thus essentially tricked into eating it in not know what is what. Instead of informed consent required in medical experiments – and this is one of the largest in human history – there is enforced ignorance. The biotech industry has had to use corruption and threats to keep secret what they continue to claim is safe and “substantially equivalent” to normal food.
And Vermonters were hit a second time by the biotech industry around “informed consent” over vaccines when the drug companies got the Vermont legislature to undermine parents’ human right to philosophical exemption to vaccines for their children. While there are stories indicating that philosophical exemption was maintained in Vermont, this is not the case. Dr. Paul G. King says:
To truly preserve the philosophical exemption in Vermont, the parents would have had to get the legislature to pass NO law modifying this exemption — and they did NOT do this.
Nicole Matten lost her 7 yr old daughter Kaylynne last December, 92 hrs after she received a flu shot. Click picture for details.
Philosophical exemption was not preserved, but altered into near meaninglessness. As the law now reads, it requires the signature of a “health” provider who may or may not give it. If the parents even know about it (a first obstacle for less educated or poor parents), and if they can obtain it (another obstacle for the poor who must understand and be able to argue for the exemption from state health care providers, not private pediatricians they know), parents are then forced to sign a document saying they know that by not vaccinating their children, others are put at risk.” Dr. King again:
The reality is that parents are endangering the health of others by vaccinating with the pertussis vaccine, because pertussis is being spread through vaccinated groups. From an article by Dr. Jacob Puliyel, a pediatrician and a member of the National Technical Advisory Group on Immunization (NTAGI) of the Government of India:
The vaccine against whooping cough seems to be putting children at INCREASED RISK of whooping cough. California is experiencing its worst whooping cough outbreak in more than 60 years. Thousands of people have gotten sick and 10 infants have died, including two in San Diego County.
Health officials across the country are trumpeting pertussis vaccinations, but a four-month investigation by KPBS and the Watchdog Institute, a nonprofit investigative center based at San Diego State University, has found that many people who have come down with whooping cough have been immunized.
The key findings of the investigation:
- For pertussis cases in which vaccination histories are known, between 44 and 83 percent were of people who had been immunized, according to data from nine California counties with high infection rates. In San Diego County, more than two thirds of the people in this group were up to date on their immunizations.
- Health officials in Ohio and Texas, two states experiencing whooping cough outbreaks, report that of all cases, 75 and 67.5 percent respectively, reported having received a pertussis vaccination.
- Today, the rate of disease in some California counties is as high as 139 per 100,000, rivaling rates before vaccines were developed.
- Public officials around the world rely heavily on two groups of pertussis experts when setting vaccine policy relating to the disease. Both groups, and many of their members, receive money from the two leading manufacturers of pertussis vaccine.
And the vaccine appears to have a new strain in it and to actually be more dangerous. From the Investigative News Source:
[Dr. Friz] Mooi, who heads the Pertussis Surveillance Project at the National Institute of Health in the Netherlands, said an epidemic in 1996 in his country gave the need for research more urgency. “And we found really a kind of new mutation in that bug,” Mooi said. In tests, Mooi’s lab found the mutated strain produced more toxins, which could make people sicker.
The health care providers in Vermont are not informing Vermont parents of this danger. Nor are they informing all the parents in Vermont that they have a human right to refuse any or all vaccines. Thus, at both the medical level and the human rights level, there is no “informed consent” in Vermont whatsoever.
But the situation is worse than that. By requiring parents who do not wish their child vaccinated to sign a document saying that they know that by not vaccinating their child they are endangering others, the state of Vermont is withholding parents’ human right to refuse vaccines unless the parents lie on a legal document.
The Senate Health & Welfare committee voted 3-1-1 to remove the philosophical exemption to mandated vaccines, without ever holding the promised public hearing. Senator Ayer: yes; Mullin: yes; Miller: yes; Pollina: no; Senator Fox: absent. Ayer, Mullin & Miller MUST GO. Vote them out!!!
In Vermont, in the place of “informed consent,” the state now offers “coerced misinformation” as the requirement for parents to refuse vaccines.
This is a stunningly invidious and deceptive undoing of “informed consent” around vaccines (which now all use GMOs), just as is any refusal to label GMOs in food. As the FDA with a Monsanto lawyer working there at the time, hid 40,000 documents showing extreme toxicity of GMOs (exactly as Monsanto hid the deadly toxicity of its PCBs for years), the biotech behemoth Monsanto relied on massive PR to promote lies about GMOs better yields and safety, has planted them without approval here and in other countries, routinely threatens farmers with law suits, and now has threatened to sue the state of Vermont to keep its “safe” GMOs unlabeled, etc. Parents are being their human right to know what is going into their children’s bodies, information they need to consent or to refuse.
But in the case of vaccines, the biotech industry not only uses corporate giants like Murdock’s news empire to lie about vaccines and excoriate doctors who are researching them, but is using legislation like that in Vermont to force parents to tell lies for them, about the dangers of not taking vaccines. The reality of the growing dangers of taking biotech’s vaccines is missing.
From Child Health Safety:
No investigation of Murdoch’s crimes should omit his efforts to use his media empire to prevent exposure of potential dangers from the MMR vaccines and possibly all the new DNA vaccines.
And what dangers do all the new DNA vaccines present but are not part of informed consent in Vermont? From a CBS health article:
Ratajczak’s article states, in part, that “Documented causes of autism include genetic mutations and/or deletions, viral infections, and encephalitis [brain damage] following vaccination [emphasis added]. Therefore, autism is the result of genetic defects and/or inflammation of the brain.”
The destruction of “informed consent” in Vermont around what goes into its children’s bodies is complete and then some.
The legislature in Vermont is undoing “informed consent” at a new level:
- NOT requiring that GMOs in food be labeled, thus is choosing NOT to inform its people of the presence of highly toxic material.
- NOT informing about GMOs presence in food though 90% of its people want to know; and in NOT requiring that information Vermont has obliterated any true consent or refusal. leaving Vermonters to ingest and feed their children highly toxic GMO material solely out of ignorance.
- Exposing Vermonters and their children to GMO material that is associated with destroying reproductive organs so is acquiescing or promoting the destruction of fertility among Vermonters.
- NOT informing about vaccine exemptions and is thus denying Vermonters “refusal,” coercing them through their ignorance of exemptions, to get their children vaccinated.
- NOT informing about the biotech industry’s new vaccines and their increasing dangers to children’s genetic make-up or about the increasingly disturbing ingredients the government is producing for them.
- NOT informing parents that each child’s ownership of their DNA is being stolen by the introduction of synthetic patented material which the pharmaceutical could lay claim to as Monsanto is doing now with GMOs in crops.
- Morcing parents to sign legal documents attesting to false (and frightening) information as a requirement to avoid vaccines – removing parents’ rights to refuse while making parents to agents of misinformation.
- Making pariahs of parents who are forced to sign legal documents falsely agreeing they are putting other people’s children at risk.
There is more than a surface similarity to keeping toxic GMOs in food unlabeled and twisting of vaccines exemptions into almost non-existence. The biotech industry produces both the patented GMOs in food, and the patented GMOs in vaccines. Both are contaminating DNA (one in plants, one in humans) and causing genetic mutations. One set of GMOs is contaminating crops via GMO pollen, and that unstoppable contamination provides a means for the drug corporations to take “ownership” over plant DNA via patents. The other set of GMOs is contaminating human-DNA via vaccines and laws voted for by corrupted legislators, and that legislatively-driven contamination provides a means for the drug corporations to take “ownership” over human-DNA via patents.
Coalition for Vaccine Choice demonstrates in Burlington in front of appointed Health Commissioner Harry Chen’s office. Chen showed a misleading map to Legislatures to pretend that there’s a health emergency, on behalf of Big Pharma. If you repeat a lie often enough, people start believing it.
Nationally, right now, there is a flood of biotech industry moves to aggressively remove all obstacles to their patented GMOs in food and to their patented GMOs in vaccines. Whether by introducing laws to criminalize all dissent to GMOs in plants and vaccines, paying to make whistleblowing a felony, planting two years before any charade of an approval process, corrupting agencies so they turn regulating the biotech industry over to the biotech industry itself, removing all liability over vaccines, inserting a new rule to all manufacturers to insert whatever they want, creating laws that would force untested (GMO) vaccines on the public in an unproven emergency, censoring news stories on safety even as HHS makes a banned substance, threatening and blocking journalists writing on a GMO drug, hiring Blackwater to infiltrate anti-GMO groups, attacking doctors studying dangers or attempting to destroy scientists’ careers, the facade of “health” for GMOs is slipping and showing a dark side mated to corruption of many kinds.
When the public which hates Monsanto for contaminating farmers’ fields and laying claim to what it caused, realizes that vaccines are coming from the very same industry and are contaminating human-DNA, it will look at the things it’s been told about vaccines and ask where that “information” came from, and what have independent scientists been saying. It will look at the 47,500 cases of paralysis caused by Bill Gates in India, and his saying just what Vermont is forcing parents to sign – that those not taking vaccines are endangering others. Gates said vaccine skeptics are killing children, using a brutal McCarthy approach to try to silence parents who are justifiably concerned with vaccine safety. Gates’ polio vaccines killed children and at twice the rate as natural polio.
Jacob Puliyel, a pediatrician in India on the vaccine board who is exposing what the GAVI (Gates, WHO, World Bank) polio vaccine has done to children in India) MA Gupta and JL Mathew say in the Indian Journal of Medical Ethics Vol IX No 2 April – June 2012 Page 114-7, in an article entitled “Polio programme: let us declare victory and move on”:
…in 2005, a fifth of the cases of non-polio AFP [“non-polio” is what the WHO labeled cases of paralysis following the polio vaccine] in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh (UP) were followed up after 60 days. 35.2% were found to have residual paralysis and 8.5% had died (making the total of residual paralysis or death – 43.7%) (28). Sathyamala examined data from the following year and showed that children who were identified with non-polio AFP were at more than twice the risk of dying than those with wild polio infection
Parents in Vermont, to protect their children from vaccines, must sign that by not vaccinating they are putting others at risk.
The Vermont legislature, in depriving the state of informed consent that would include information on the pertussis vaccine that is spreading whooping cough, the polio vaccine that is paralyzing children, the MMR vaccine now associated with mitochondrial failure, the measles vaccines that are failing, all the new DNA vaccines which alter DNA with patented GMOs, all the mandated vaccines and the flu vaccine containing polysorbate 80 (an ingredient destructive of fertility), etc. and inform Vermonters what food there contains GMOs which the FDA knew were highly toxic in the 1990s and hid the evidence and which now are destroying reproductive organs, and causing lethal diseases.
Informed consent is the bedrock of medical ethics. What the Vermont legislature is doing to lives and freedom of its own people, it is doing for the sake of the biotech industry.
