Vaccine Rights Advocates Rock Albany

Mainstream Media Dead Silent

January 10, 2020 – Over 1,000 people protest vaccine mandates in Albany and the mainstream media (MSM) ignores it. The only mention came from a local CBS affiliate that published a meager 112 words on what was in reality a massive presence. For me it was fantastic to see all of the “King Cuomo” protest signs that match-up wonderfully with my recent reporting on Cuomo.

Also extremely noteworthy, Rita Palma was told by Assemblyman Montesano that his office is receiving as many calls against vaccine mandates as they are against bail reform – that’s huge! Bail reform is the most rejected legislation in New York today. That means New Yorkers overwhelmingly do not support new vaccine mandates; but you wouldn’t know that if you only watch the MSM for your news. Below John Gilmore covers the January 8th protest in detail:

What an awesome day in Albany January 8th! Workers at the state buildings said ours was the biggest and LOUDEST group to ever show up for the opening of the Legislative Session.  Well over a thousand people showed and Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., warrior mom Brooke Jordan, Rabbi Zev Epstein, Mary Holland co-author of HPV Vaccine of Trial and Assemblymember David DiPietro presented moving speeches to us in the Capitol. One consistent message came from the legislators who are on our side: keep it up!

     We began our day in front of Merck’s Albany headquarters, just half a block from the Capitol, for a reason.  All the vaccine bills we are fighting in New York are there to make money for Merck, Pfizer, Sanofi & Glaxo, the big four drug companies that sell almost 90% of the vaccines in the world.  As US Representative Ilhan Omar said, “It’s all about the Benjamins.”

    Merck is a serial felon. They have paid more than $10 billion in fines, penalties and settlements since 2000 including more than $5 billion for at least 60,000 deaths caused by their Vioxx product. And $350 million for bribing public officials and doctors!

   Gardasil is the most controversial vaccine in the world. It was banned in Japan for safety reasons. There are lawsuits around the world in those countries that allow lawsuits against vaccine injuries, which does not include the US. It has a horrendous safety record and there is a growing body of evidence that much of the data Merck used to get the product license was fraudulent.

    Three of the four bills we are fighting the hardest would give Merck direct access to our kids and shutting parents out completely. They are:

     S298b/A2912a, Mandates Merck’s Gardasil to attend school. Think about that, the state is forcing people to buy Merck’s product, which is already a monopoly, and if any child is injured by Gardasil Merck has complete liability protection. Three states have Gardasil mandates, all three allow parents to opt out for any reason, but Not New York’s bill.

     S3899a/A973a, Allows giving drugs and vaccines that are marketed as preventing sexually transmitted diseases to minors without parental knowledge or consent. No lower age limits are in the bill.

     S4244c/A6564c, Allows any vaccine to be given to children 14 and older without parental knowledge or consent. Any child in school has to have all the mandated vaccines, so this bill is clearly doing two things: targeting homeschooled kids, and promoting Gardasil which is not required to attend school.

     S2276/A2316, Mandates annual flu shots for daycare, Pre-K, k-12. This isn’t a Merck specific bill but they sell flu vaccines too.

    We need to keep the pressure up. The following people are the key players in the legislature. Please call them and politely ask what their positions are on the bills above and let them know that you oppose all the bills.
