May 17, 2019 — The “VACCINATE ALL CHILDREN ACT 2019” was introduced on May 3rd, 2019 by Rep Wilson from Florida. There is no summary text of the bill at this time and it is hard to say precisely what it would do if it became law.
This appears to be an old bill dusted off and put back on the table.
Read this blog post about the legislation when it first appeared back in 2015:
The only New York sponsor of this bill right now is Rep. Gregory Meeks. If you are in his district, call, email or send him a letter by snail-mail telling him you do not support this over-reach of the federal government.
If you are not in his district, just keep tabs of this bill. We need to keep our fight on the state level right now. Keep up the pressure and the great activism in NY State, but keep an ear to the ground for this one and other actions on vaccination coming from Congress.
May 17, 2019 — The fight right now is still on the state level, so do *not* let up on all your activism on state reps & Albany. However we must watch what’s happening in D.C. as well. I have been writing Senators Schumer & Gilibrand as well as my Congressional Rep for about 6 months now regarding vaccine rights. I’ve gotten some extensive responses that I will eventually publish here. My rep is not a co-sponsor of this resolution right now. Is yours?
This is Resolution 179. It is not a bill to become a law, but rather resolutions are used as a general understanding or consensus building strategy in Congress. Here is the summary of it:
This resolution commends the international community, health organizations, the private sector, school and community leaders, and faith-based organizations for bolstering health through vaccination.
It also recognizes that the lack of vaccination can create an environment in which a public health crisis could emerge, and that there is no credible evidence that vaccines cause life-threatening or disabling diseases in healthy children or adults.
The resolution also encourages a continued commitment to vaccine research, and urges everyone to follow the scientific evidence and consensus of medical experts in favor of timely vaccinations.
“All people should be vaccinated … for the greater good” – Sandy Menor, Justice Democrats
April 28, 2019 — I received a statement from the Justice Democrats outlining what appears to be their official position on Federal Vaccination Policy. They say “all people” should be vaccinated “for the greater good.” I have sent clarifying questions to get very specific confirmation on the Justice Democrats position on vaccines. After I feel I have gotten all the most important issues covered, I will have an extensive response to them, and all who share their position.
I want to thank everyone on Twitter who retweeted my Tweets (two of them are included at end of this post) on this topic and/or emailed my letter to the Justice Democrats as I requested. It seems to have gotten their attention. Yesterday was the first time I reached out to Justice Democrat leadership instead of the actual elected officials themselves, namely Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (AOC), Ayanna Pressley, Ilhan Omar, and Rashida Tlaib. Back on February 1, 2019, I sent a letter to these Justice Dems via email, snail-mail and AOC’s official congressional portal, and received no response.
@Sandy_Menor who works as a Support Team Director for the Justice Democrats responded to my email yesterday on April 27, 2019. Below is her email to me, followed by my follow-up email asking 4 clarification questions in regards to the Justice Democrats position on vaccination.
We believe all people should be vaccinated unless medically unable to do so. Public health and safety should always be the first concern. The current epidemic is evidence what happens when people ignore the greater good of fellow citizens and the vulnerable. Your email addresses to Rep. Ocasio-Cortez were both incorrect so she has not gotten anything until now. I forwarded to her office and I hope that you will hear from her soon. You can fill out an email to her office if you live in her district at https://ocasio-cortez.house.gov/contact
I responded to the above email with the following:

to Sandy, press, us
Thank you very much for this response Sandy. I greatly appreciate it. I have a few clarifying questions:
1) When you say “we believe” can you tell me who that “we” exactly refers to?
2) What do the Justice Democrats, or AOC feel about my lengthy evidence based thesis that the USA should adopt a vaccination policy similar to that of Japan, where most children are not vaccinated until they are 2 years old?
3) When you say “We believe all people should be vaccinated,” does that mean you support vaccine mandates for children and adults, or just children?
4) Lastly, does the “we” that you are referring to support forced vaccination mandates upon people who do not consent to vaccination? There are many people – and unfortunately many of them are Democrats who claim to be “progressives” – that believe forced vaccination should be legal in America. Does the “we” you are referring to agree with this position?
Thank you so much for getting in touch with me on this. I greatly appreciate finally hearing someone from the Justice Democrats give some sort of position on this issue.
Since I didn’t receive a real response from Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (AOC) when I wrote a letter to her asking for her position on federal vaccination policy, I forwarded that letter to the leadership of the Justice Democrats, and cc’d all of the email addresses I had to attempt to get it to AOC and her staff as well.
I am a blogger from New York who a few months back reached out to AOC & other prominent female Justice Dems in Congress voicing my concerns about vaccine policy in America. My main point was that America needs to adopt a federal vaccination policy similar to Japan’s.
I never received a response from AOC (or any of the Justice Dems,) even though I live in Queens, NY. While I am not providing my name and identity in this email or on my blog, my letter at the time was not anonymous. This is a critical issue – where do Justice Dems stand on vaccination policy?Since I received no response, I am slowly beginning to promote my letter that was not responded to and will ask others to do the same. It is published here:
This is a very important topic that no one has addressed yet – just what is the “Justice Democrats” position on vaccination policy in America and mandatory vaccination? It is a crucial question, as this group of progressive Democrats show all signs of growing in number and in power. Back in February when I saw Alexandria Ocasio Cortez take on Big Pharma to their faces in Congressional Hearings I was extremely hopeful! I thought this was an opportunity to breach the topic of vaccination with her and her supporters.
I sent the below letter to AOC by email, through her official congressional portal, and by snail-mail to both her local office in Queens as well as her D.C. office. I sent emails & snail-mail to the cc’d Justice Democrats as well. I have heard nothing from any of them.
It is possible that these women do not make their own decision on what their policy is regarding vaccination. There are those who suggest that all Justice Democrats merely follow the Justice Democrat platform to a tee, and are “not allowed” to deviate from that platform. I am not going to accept that as gospel just yet. It may be true, but more time needs to pass before I can say that is or is not the case. However one thing I can say is that the below members of Congress need to be held accountable on federal vaccination policy. Please send this link to them, and the below letter, especially if you are a constituent of theirs, and demand that they respond to you so that we know where they stand on vaccine policy and mandatory vaccination in America.
OR you can send this letter to the Justice Democrats
Please send me any-and-all responses you receive so that I may post them at this blog.
Now here’s my letter…
February 1, 2019
Dear Alexandria Ocasio Cortez,
cc – Congresswomen Ayanna Pressley, Ilhan Omar, and Rashida Tlaib
As an American I want to thank you for taking on Big Pharma within weeks of getting into office. Your passion, bravery and intelligence are quite simply awe-inspiring! As a father I feel the need to bring up another issue regarding Big Pharma corruption that goes widely overlooked – the issue of vaccines. The US should have a vaccination policy similar to Japan, where children begin receiving vaccines after the age of 2. However Big Pharma would lose billions of dollars if we did that in the US. Below I list facts in bullet points that support this statement. None of these points are speculation, they are hard facts that can be easily backed up with credible documentation. I have researched this topic for the past 20 years. If you wish to get references for this information I would be very happy to send you sources and original documentation supporting all of the following facts:
French Nobel Prize-winning virologist, Luc Montagnier, who discovered the HIV virus, has said “no one should vaccinate their child before 2 years of age.”
Japan’s vaccine schedule is in line with this, vaccinating only after 2 years of age
USA vaccine schedule can give up to 40 vaccines before 1 year of age
Japanese children receive far less vaccines than USA children
Japanese children are among the healthiest in the developed world
USA children are the unhealthiest in all of the developed world
USA gives Hepatitis B vaccine on first day of life
USA has highest rate of baby deaths on first day of life in the developed world
Japan has a rate of SIDS that is almost ZERO
USA has 3,000 to 7,000 SIDS deaths every year
Over 50% of USA children have some form of autoimmune disease
The Institute of Medicine (IOM) has studied over 170 diseases possibly linked to vaccines
Vaccines are the ONLY Pharma product citizens cannot sue over
Ronald Reagan gave vaccine makers immunity from lawsuits in the 1980s
There is a special “Vaccine Court” in D.C. that caps penalties
Over $4 billion has been paid to families of vaccine injured children in this special court even with the cap on payouts
According to the CDC, multiple-thousands of children are injured or killed by vaccines every year (as published in the VAERS reporting system)
CDC, HHS & FDA officials have admitted the VAERS numbers are only a small percentage of true total injuries
In vaccine court, families have received money for their children developing Autism after vaccination, but it is not explicitly stated as such
Hannah Poling is one such famous case of Autism induced by vaccines, but they hid it with the word “encephalopathy” (which means brain swelling/damage)
Congress declared vaccines are “unavoidably unsafe” in 1986 legislation.
The Supreme Court cited the 1986 legislation saying vaccines are “unavoidably unsafe” in Bruesewitz v. Wyeth
Ruth Bader Ginsberg and Sonia Sotomayor were the only two Justices to vote AGAINST Big Pharma in Bruesewitz v. Wyeth
Recently in court HHS had to admit they never conducted even 1 study on vaccine safety when they were required by law to do bi-annual studies over the past 30 years!
William Thompson is a CDC whistleblower who still works for CDC
Thompson brought out documentation showing the CDC conducted a study connecting the MMR vaccine to Autism
That study linked MMR to Autism at the highest rates in African American boys
CDC scientists attempted to burn all documentation of the study (literally, burn it!)
Congressman Bill Posey (R-Florida) has done honorable work trying to get Thompson’s story onto the floor of Congress.
Big Pharma has such complete control of Congress, Posey has not been able to get Thompson to testify in Congress even though he is still a CDC employee!!!
Millions of parents – particularly millions of mothers – say they saw their children injured or die after receiving vaccines, especially when receiving multiple vaccines at one time, and especially when fully vaccinated to the CDC’s currently recommended schedule
Thank you so much for reading through these bullet points. This is an issue that demands attention and action by our elected officials. Some of the actions I believe need to happen are:
Revoke Big Pharma’s immunity from vaccine injury lawsuits in open court
Create an independent scientific body to investigate CDC & NIH links to Big Pharma
Create a vaccine schedule that starts at age 2, like Japan
Justice Democrats should connect with Congressman Posey & REALLY ROCK D.C. !
The US needs to adopt a more common sense vaccination policy similar to that of Japan, however to do so would cost Big Pharma $BILLIONS$ of dollars, and they will do everything in their power to stop such a commonsense vaccine policy from occurring in this country. This is about the health and well-being of American children, which has been deteriorating drastically since 1990. There are few members of Congress who are not under Big Pharma’s thumb on this issue. Unfortunately it seems there are more Republicans willing to listen to the truth about this topic then Democrats. I am hoping that changes with the new wave of warriors we have in D.C. now – led by you! Many of our politicians have been supporting the current vaccination campaign for so long they are afraid to say they may have been wrong. None of you have that problem!!! If you could work across the aisle with Republican Congressman Bill Posey who has done fantastic work fighting for the rights of innocent children, I believe we would finally move towards being a healthier nation that better protects our most vulnerable citizens – our children.
If there is anything I can do to assist anyone in your office in getting the facts on this issue, or answer any questions, I would love to help. Thank you so much for all the amazing work you are doing – women like you make me feel safe in the world and proud to be an American!
