Harlem Vaccine Debate Controversy Continues

Both sides are pissed off!

December 20, 2019 — Pro-vaccine advocates continue to fire shots at the Vaccine Choice advocates they just debated on December 15th. Thousands of people continue to watch the controversy unfold on internet interviews of participants in The Great Harlem Vaccine Debate. Health Freedom Advocate Virstyne Henry and Parent Activist Danielle Gail were interviewed by Saneter. The two women are pictured above and the interviews of them can be found at the end of this report.

The “Amen Ra Squad,” which argued the pro-vaccine side of the debate headed by Ankh Imhotep and Asar Imhotep, has been vocally upset about the way the debate transpired. Many comments have been flying, especially from Ankh Imhotep. The Amen Ra Squad felt they were “set-up” in the debate and treated unfairly.

I was at the debate and I do not believe anyone was treated unfairly. There were many more Vaccine Choice & Health Freedom folk in the audience at the debate than there were pro-vaccine supporters; that is true. But as Virstyne Henry says in the below linked Youtube interview with Saneter, whose fault was that?!? They didn’t bring their people – we did!

Parent advocate Danielle Gail was asked by Saneter what she had heard after the debate that “pissed her off.” She stated that Ankh Imhotep had been saying, “We won we won we won!” like a child who had actually just lost. That was not to say either side was victorious because the goal wasn’t winning or losing, but rather to exchange information.

When Virstyne Henry was asked what “pissed her off” she was most upset with those who racialized the debate claiming black people don’t have the luxury of saying there are government and medical conspiracies against them. She also stated that after the debate there was one member from the pro-vaccine side who told her he had never heard many of the facts presented by the Vaccine Choice debaters, and he planned to look into them further.

“That must have been Asar,” said Saneter.

I agree, it must have been. Asar Imhotep was by far the most impressive debater on the pro-vaccine side of the debate, and I quote and paraphrase him at length in my reporting. Asar seemed to be the most open-minded individual on the pro-vaccine panel.

Watch the interviews with Saneter below (two of them).

And make sure to read my ongoing coverage of the debate at the following links. There was too much information to cover in one report, so I am breaking it up into a series based off of the 4 questions that were debated:

Question 1 – Are Vaccines Safe?

Question 2 – Are vaccines effective? (report coming soon)

Question 3 – Can you raise a healthy child without vaccines? (report still to come)

Question 4 – Who should decide if a child is vaccinated, parents or the government? (report still to come)

Danielle Gail, parent activist: “This is not a white thing, this is not a black thing; it is a human race thing, not anything else. We need to stick together. I feel like racism is all about keeping the people weak.

Virstyne, Health Freedom Activist: “I call it the ‘Once black people find out about it it’s over for them” theory.


December 12, 2019 — I interviewed two of the women who will be on the Health Freedom side of The Great Harlem Vaccine Debate on Sunday, December 15th. One is a mother and the other is a Health Freedom Advocate. One is black the other is white. They come from different backgrounds and life experiences but both have a passion for exposing the truth as they have come to know it regarding vaccination.

They will be participating in The Great Harlem Vaccine Debate pairing up against counterparts who believe they’re Health Freedom information is wrong; it will likely be mom vs. mom and Health Freedom Advocate vs. Pro-vaccine Advocate.

“I had a mini-debate against two of the people who will be on the pro-vaccine side of the debate recently,” said Virsytne in our phone interview. “The vibe I got from them was that this is a white person’s problem, but it’s an every-person’s problem. They are buying into the propaganda that so-called ‘anti-vaxxers’ are racists and ‘killing black people’ by not vaccinating; which is just nonsense.”

Virstyne elaborated on this point more:

“A lot of black people aren’t into science. We are brainwashed into thinking basketball and rap are the ways out of the hood…I’m from L.A; I grew up in South Central. I would get my hair done in the hood where most of the clients were pimps, gangsters and prostitutes. They were all very intelligent people. They may not have been formally educated but they are not stupid.” 

Most Black people instinctively know that the government and big corporations are not to be trusted, so, as Virstyne’s theory goes; “Once black people find out about it it’s over for them.

This is precisely why ABC News took 3 weeks to write a vicious attack on Robert F. Kennedy Jr. after The Harlem Vaccine Forum; the mainstream news media (and their Big Pharma master) is scared to death of the African American community realizing the dangers and damage posed and caused by vaccination; including the fact that there is a 340% increase in incidents of Autism in African American boys when they are given the MMR vaccine at 18 months of age. That data was illegally hidden and destroyed by the CDC, and was first brought to light in the documentary movie VAXXED.

Virstyne Henry is co-founder of the website https://www.truthertalk.com/ You can find her work there and at all of the following links:





Instinct is how Danielle describes her realization that vaccination was not to be trusted.

“It was just a gut feeling. It started the first year I was a teacher. I got a letter from the health department saying I had to get some sort of shot to keep working in the school. My initial reaction was “Hell no!” So I didn’t do it. Nothing came of it, and years later when I was pregnant I just naturally questioned vaccination. I eventually talked to a friend who doesn’t vaccinate her kids and she pointed me in the direction of Dr. Palvesky.”

Dr. Larry Palevsky is a pediatrician who will also be part of the Pro-Health Freedom side of The Great Vaccine Debate on Sunday, December 15. I asked Danielle about what her plans are in terms of educating her children now that the religious exemption to vaccination has been repealed here in New York.

“I already wanted to home school my children even before the religious exemption was repealed. I don’t believe that the school system provides a proper education to begin with.”

Does Danielle and her family have any plans to leave New York?

“If things continue to be corrupt, yes. Eventually they want to force home-schooled children to vaccinate as well. I don’t want to have any part of it, it’s a disgrace to humanity.”

Interview with Del Bigtree: The Great Harlem Vaccine Debate

BREAKING NEWS on Vaccine Injured NY Boy Ameer

Has Anyone Debated Del on Vaccines?

Del Loves New York!

Trump & Vaccines


December 6, 2019 — Del Bigtree, CEO of ICAN and producer of the movies VAXXED and VAXXED II, is coming back to New York for The Great Harlem Vaccine Debate on December 15, 2019. Buy your tickets to the debate at the following link:

***Buy Tickets HERE!***

Curtis Cost helped connect me with Bigtree for a phone interview that went in many directions; from vaccine debates, to Del’s most memorable trip to New York, to a breaking news update on vaccine injured Ameer from Buffalo, to the coming “REAL ID” and mandatory adult vaccination.

Where to begin…


On November 12th here at The Fed Up Democrat we reported that a temporary restraining order was granted sending a 9-year-old vaccine injured boy named Ameer back to school. I asked Del Bigtree what were the next legal steps to be taken in this case.

“We are going to break this story on The Highwire next week,” said Del Bigtree during our phone interview. “The school board that removed Ameer from school is not going to push back. The temporary restraining order that put Ameer back in school last month is now permanent.”

This sets a firm legal precedent in New York that medical exemptions to vaccination written by doctors cannot be overridden by the Department of Health.

“Unlike other cases that went after health departments, it is actually the schools that enforce the denial of a medical exemption to vaccination. Aaron Siri made a smart tactical move by going after the school. So if in the future a New York school overrides a valid medical exemption written by a doctor lawyers can cite this case as a precedent to return a child back to school.”

Aaron Siri is the attorney who represented Ameer. Del Bigtree and his non-profit ICAN have worked with Siri on many cases, including cases against both federal and state government agencies that related to vaccination. Siri was also involved in lawsuits where Brooklyn residents were fined for refusing to be injected with the MMR vaccine back when Mayor DeBlasio declared a state of emergency forcing the vaccine on every Brooklyn resident in 4 zip codes.

“We helped fund some of the legal work where there were 100 people fined (in Brooklyn for not taking the MMR vaccine) and we were able to win over 90% of those cases,” said Bigtree.

Real Vaccine Debates?

Anyone who follows Del Bigtree knows he always wants to get into real debates over vaccines with anyone who is willing, but has anyone ever accepted the challenge to debate him and his colleagues? Here’s the response I got from Bigtree:

“I showed up for a conversation which was setup to be a debate in Atlanta, Georgia. Six doctors – including neurologists and pediatricians – were going to debate us. Chris Shaw was one of the doctors on my side, so was Dr. Toni Bark and James Lyons-Weiler. We all showed up for the debate but about a week before the event the AMA found out, contacted the other side and made them drop out. We had the debate anyway – we debated 6 empty chairs across from us. I always say yes to debates, but now I’m doubtful the other side will show up because they never do. I hope the other side shows up in Harlem this time.”

There was one time Bigtree was able to debate, unexpectedly, at the state Capitol in Oklahoma:

“I had a debate in Oklahoma once when they had a meeting at the Capitol. The head of their health department spoke to the legislators and answered questions. They asked the health department head a question and his response was not based on the science. When they came to me I said, ‘hold on, can I refute what was just said,’ they said, ‘Yes, this is what this is for.’ That was fantastic! It was the first time I had the vaccine debate in public. Even the head of the health department eventually realized he was out-manned. He said vaccines are safe and effective over and over. I think it was when we discussed the DTaP vaccine and how the pertussis component does not stop transmission, but rather creates asymptomatic carriers of pertussis that are very dangerous especially to newborns: from that moment on he seemed to tap-out of the debate. At times he would lean in to the mic as if he was going to make a statement, but would ultimately just stay quiet and not really answer.”

Even Dr. Stanley Plotkin, the so called “Godfather” of the modern vaccine movement, has admitted the acellular DTaP vaccine allows those vaccinated with it to be carriers of pertussis in their lungs. You can watch Plotkin admit this when he was legally deposed under oath at the following link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XHbl6GKC19o (go to 24:30)

Del Loves New York!

Bigtree has been spending a lot of time in New York lately. I asked him what was his favorite or most memorable visit to New York

“That’s hard to say, I met my wife in New York. It’s a favorite place of mine. But I think that the events in the ultra-orthodox Jewish communities in Rockland County and in Brooklyn – at the center of the measles outbreak – were very special. I feel it was historic. Over 1,000 ultra-orthodox Jews were in the room in Rockland. A rabbi said to me this isn’t something they normally do; they don’t bring in a gentile in to educate them. But they greatly appreciated the information I brought and it made them look at things from another perspective. The intensity around the issue made it really special too. What was so unique and frightening was that we were talking about a quarantine at that time. Even the law that just got passed in New York to repeal the religious exemption to vaccination was not as dangerous as that quarantine. The quarantine laws were saying you could not go to the synagogue during Passover if you hadn’t been vaccinated with the MMR.”

Remember that Rockland County Executive Ed Day had banned all unvaccinated children (healthy children!) from being in any public spaces. Thankfully that emergency order was over-turned in court.

Trump & Vaccines

I asked Bigtree what he felt about Trump and his vaccine policies, as we have seen both positive and negative acts by Trump when it comes to vaccination. Here is Bigtree’s extensive response:

“We have got to get over the idea that there is a single president or leader who can help us. This problem, and all of our problems, are because our government leaders are funded by lobbyists and industries we are supposed to be protected from…I personally believe Trump has slowed down the push for a mandated adult vaccination program. It’s clear this thing goes down party lines. Democrats for some reason have decided to make this a platform for their party, which is hard to understand how they are environmentalists on one hand but have no problem forcing known toxins to be injected into everybody.

“But to jump on the other side of this what it shows is that people should be cautious on all sides. Trump represents the possibility that anyone can win the presidency…There are a lot of Latinos, African Americans and members of the LGBT community that believe Trump does not want them in this country. Here’s what’s shocking – many of those same people will support a forced vaccination program that today would be headed by the man they don’t trust; Donald Trump!

“I want to be very clear about this: We should’ve learned from Nazi Germany that we don’t want our government injecting us with products or performing medical procedures that we do not agree with. I think we all know it’s possible that a ‘bad actor’ could become the president of this country; as I already said some think Trump is that bad actor. And it is the president that determines health policy in this country; the president picks the head of the CDC, HHS, NIH, FDA and EPA.

“Imagine a bad actor that doesn’t like a certain race or lifestyle-choice who gets into a position to target that group through medical means. The vaccine issue only opens the door to a far more insidious problem we are facing with Big Pharma having captured our regulatory agencies.”


“I think we are in a position now where we are on the precipice of losing informed consent altogether. It’s not about just the children any longer, it’s about all of humanity. The adult vaccine mandates are coming,” said Bigtree. “The ‘REAL ID’ is moving towards becoming mandatory in America by October of 2020, which will maintain all types of data about a person that could include your vaccination records. We will see in America what happened in Argentina recently, where you can’t get a drivers license, a marriage license, etc… unless you are up to date on all of your vaccines.”

Age of Autism recently reported that the European Union is planning on making a vaccine ID attached to the European passport by 2022. In New York there are behind the scenes discussions in Albany over mandatory vaccination of all teachers and educators. The world is also moving towards assigning a Universal Digital Identity (UDI) to every man, woman and child that will be needed to buy food, travel, utilize government services, see a doctor, access moneys and so on. Just like the REAL ID a UDI would have the capability of holding your entire medical history on it, including vaccination records.

I couldn’t agree more with Bigtree – the danger that is in front of us is for every American and every human being on planet earth. The battle for #HealthFreedom is about way more than whether or not our children can attend public school.

Health Freedom in New York

Trump & Vaccines

Buy Curtis Costs book, Vaccines are Dangerous


December 2, 2019 — As I spoke to Curtis Cost over the phone I could hear the energy, enthusiasm and excitement in his voice for what is happening with the Health Freedom and Vaccine Choice Movement in New York today. On the heels of the wildly successful Harlem Vaccine Forum, Cost is now planning a debate over the safety and efficacy of vaccines called The Great Harlem Vaccine Debate in Harlem, NY on December 15, 2019. I had a lot to ask Cost and he was very happy to answer all of my questions.

Controversy at the Riverside Church

I attended Cost’s October 19th event The Harlem Vaccine Forum at the Riverside Church and published two reports about it. The first report was only about the controversy at the end where Robert F. Kennedy Jr. had his mic cutoff mid sentence and was forced out of the church. At that time I was told that Andrew Wakefield was set to speak after RFK Jr.

“Yes that’s correct. Andy Wakefield and Gary Null were both set to speak by Skype after Kennedy,” said Cost in our phone interview.

Cost explained that the contract they had with the Riverside Church was from 1 to 4pm with an hour to setup before the event and one hour to break down. They had assumed it would be fine to run over into their breakdown time as long as they were out of the church by 5pm – this is customary for events everywhere, including at the Riverside Church. But the church pulled the plug promptly at 4pm in a rude and entirely unprofessional manner. For all the details of how that went down read Controversy at Harlem Vaccine Forum.

“It was clear to me very powerful forces were involved. For them to shut off a mic on a Kennedy like that – somebody very powerful got to them, or several people,” said Cost. It should be noted that the video footage of RFK’s mic being cut has been viewed over 300,000 times on the internet, according to Cost. After the event one of the attorneys working with Cost reached out to the Riverside Church asking them to discuss what had happened; to clear the air and figure out precisely what broke down in their communications.

“Riverside Church said no; they refused to talk with us…Overall I am really shocked. I have never seen this type of response and level of hostility,” said Cost.

Keep in mind Cost and Children’s Health Defense (CHD) were paying customers who had contractually rented the space for the event. Why they would treat a paying customer this way remains unclear and definitely speaks to some form of intentional sabotage. If that is not the case, than why would the church refuse to meet after the fact to clear the air?

Al Sharpton

As many people know Curits Cost was the man who got Al Sharpton to agree to speak at the Harlem Vaccine Forum sharing the stage with RFK Jr. However just days before the forum Al Sharpton cancelled it. Cost has worked with Sharpton shedding light on many important issues over many decades, including the US Naval base in Vieques, Puerto Rico. RFK Jr. and Sharpton were both arrested protesting at the Naval base back in 2001. Cost had organized a protest in NYC demanding Sharpton be let out of prison at that time.

The Harlem Vaccine Forum was originally scheduled to take place at Sharpton’s National Action Network, but the plug was pulled when Sharpton was viciously attacked by the mainstream media. I told Cost when I had first published that Sharpton would be sharing the stage with RFK Jr., conservative friends of mine in media said there was no way Sharpton “would be allowed” to be involved with the event, especially since Sharpton works for MSNBC. Cost said he too has friends in media who said the exact same thing to him from early on.

Cost respects Sharpton and has held forums and events with him and his National Action Network in the past on many issues, including on vaccines. However Sharpton had never put his name and likeness to a vaccine event the way he tried to for the 2019 forum. As the attacks on Sharpton leading up to the event grew, Cost got a call from Sharpton’s office.

“They told me I had exactly 1 hour to come up with 4 doctors who will debate the pro-vaccine side…Well that was really just a way of him saying no; how was I going to find 4 doctors in 1 hour? Keep in mind this was not a debate, it was a forum…The way things happened is not what I was used to,” said Cost.

Nothing like this had ever happened to Cost when working with Sharpton and his organization before. Since the event was at the National Action Network, Cost recognized that Sharpton was “the boss” and would call the shots. The way things went down was very unexpected to Cost.

“I can tell you one thing though, when I read the report put out by ABC news attacking Sharpton it was clear to me they were scared to death over RFK and Sharpton getting together on this issue…This whole thing became far bigger than I imagined it would because of the Sharpton controversy. If they would’ve just let it play out on it’s own it would’ve never been this big. I’ve heard from people in France, Israel, and all over the world who know about this thing!”

Health Freedom New York

“I had taken a break from (vaccine activism) until June 13, 2019,” said Cost. That was the date the religious exemption to vaccination was repealed in New York State. Cost has been a Vaccine Choice activist since at least 1991, when he published the first addition of “Vaccines Are Dangerous.” I asked Cost how the face of the Vaccine Choice Movement has changed since then.

“When I started there was no movement, there was just me. Many thought I was crazy. I knew there was a huge information gap in the African American community. No one else in my community had written such a book but me, and to my knowledge I believe that’s still the case. It was just me going places, giving talks.”

Compared to today:

“I do see a massive coming together of black, white, rich, poor, all coming together on this issue. We had everyone at the Harlem Vaccine Forum; Asians and Latinos as well. They all recognize that informed consent and parental choice are critical. We can all agree on that.”

I asked Cost what he thought about the common criticism thrown at our movement – that it’s just a bunch of entitled rich white women:

“I am not rich, I’m not white and I’m not a woman – you can quote me on that – and I’ve been out there for 30 years doing this. I have been educating the Black community with this information going back to the 1990s.”

Cost has had much success with the so-called ‘Conscious Community,’ which is a diverse group of African Americans who are very mindful of what they eat, what goes into their bodies, and follow different spiritual or religious paths.

“In the Black Community the Conscious community is aware of who I am and they are very grateful to me. It’s the more general market of African Americans who need more help. They are not tuning in to the conscious radio shows or lectures; getting to them is a huge challenge. They have PhD’s in watching Oprah and Beyonce, or they can quote tons of stats on sports. That is the majority of what our people are dealing with so they are not getting this information.”

This is hardly different from what we experience in the White community.

“My job,” Cost continued, “is not finished. Other’s in the Conscious community are doing good work as well. That effort is now joining forces with White people in the Vaccine Choice movement who have the same common ground.”

As I’ve said before I believe this ‘coming together’ is what scares The Powers That Be (TPTB) more than anything, and it may be the only thing that scares them.

Trump & Vaccines

Clearly and without question the Democrats are the #1 enemy of all Health Freedom and Vaccine Choice advocates today; especially Democratic leadership. When Trump was campaigning to be president he stated vaccines can and do cause Autism in some children. He was the first presidential hopeful to ever make such a statement, and he gained tons of support from the Vaccine Choice community because of these comments. However he has not made good on any of his promises to our community, and in fact has gone in the opposite direction. Additionally Trump does not seem to have the best interests of the African American Community in mind (at least in my opinion). I asked Cost what his opinion was of this reality:

“Everyone in this movement, no matter race or background, recognizes that informed consent and parental choice is critical. We can all agree on that. Trump is the better choice, at least at this point in time. Trump was instrumental recently in passing an executive order allowing doctors to refuse to engage in procedures that go against their religious and/or philosophical beliefs. It’s believed this should have a wider impact on all of society, and eventually apply to everyone. Republicans will at least stand for parental choice.”

Cost and I agreed on this most critical fact – we are both single-issue voters. Cost understands that many African American are concerned about housing, police brutality, the economy – all valid and important issues without question. However there is no freedom unless we are free to determine what does and does not go into our bodies – especially what is directly injected into our muscle tissue (and our kids).

“Based on my research,” said Cost, “they are poisoning our kids. The greatest threat to the Black community and the entire populace are these vaccines!”

Health Freedom in Harlem, NY

500 People Attend Vaccine Forum

Amazing Diverse Turn Out!

No Mainstream News Coverage

RFK Names Names!

Overview — The Harlem Vaccine Forum was nothing if it wasn’t controversial. From Al Sharpton almost ending the event before it ever happened, to RFK Jr. having his mic cutoff and police called on him. 24 hours after the event it appears there is no mainstream news coverage of the event at all – not even to slam it. They couldn’t stop it, so now they ignore it.

After attending the event it is clear to me why there were so many attempts to stop it from happening: it was the broad range of diversity that came together in one place. This is the most dangerous aspect of the forum; Black, White, Brown, urban, suburban, old, young all represented in the same space for the same reason – Health Freedom! When I say “dangerous,” I mean dangerous to the political establishment in Albany, NY, people such as Governor Andrew Cuomo, Senator Brad Hoylman, and Assemblyman Jeff Dinowitz.

When Health Freedom Activist Sheila Ealey spoke she reminded everyone that Black folk have never been given a fair chance in America, still till this day. As I sat with White mothers (many who were in tears ) whose children have been kicked out of public school because they are unvaccinated or under-vaccinated, it was painfully clear to me none of us at that forum had a fair chance now. I felt as though I heard Sheila gently welcome us White folk to the club. This was the most powerful take-away from The Harlem Vaccine Forum for me: our strength will come as we unify and rise-up, and The Powers That Be (TPTB) know this and are afraid of it. It may be the only thing they are afraid of. – Fed Up Dem


October 20, 2019 — The Harlem Vaccine Forum was phenomenal!

As GPS directed me to the event I cracked a smile as signs took me over the RFK bridge. When I arrived at the historic Riverside Church I saw the amazing Sheila Ealey who was selling Mary Holland’s book VACCINE EPIDEMIC. I have seen Sheila speak other times, including in Albany during our NYAVR Lobby day. I introduced myself. When I told her I have a blog called The Fed Up Democrat she said “I love your stuff!” and gave me a big high five! (That was pretty cool). The event was as diverse as New York City – Black, White, Brown, old, young and children everywhere. The sound of children playing, crying, talking was almost a constant filling the air before and during the event.

Curtis Cost who wrote the book “Vaccines Are Dangerous” was the master of ceremonies for the event, and did an outstanding job. “They tried to stop us but we are here anyway,” said Cost to crowd cheers and applauds.

The first speaker was Mary Holland, who Cost just gushed love and admiration for. He said it was like the two of them were married because they spoke everyday on the phone for months planning the event. Cost thanked Children’s Health Defense (CHD) profusely for “putting their money where their mouth is.” The event would not have happened without CHD. Holland is the full-time General Council for CHD, and she was just as gracious with her thanks to Cost when she got to the microphone.

“This is a make or break Civil Rights Movement for the 21st Century,” said Holland.

Holland detailed exactly what the problems are in New York right now, specifically how we lost the Religious Exemption to Vaccination for students which New York had for over 55 years. Holland outlined the current litigation CHD has fighting mandatory vaccination. Her most memorable moment was when she discussed the legacy of the great Frederick Douglas, the 19th Century African American abolitionist and civil rights leader. Something very few know is that Douglas was staunchly opposed to mandatory vaccination. He noted that many people who were vaccinated for small pox still died of small pox, so what was the point of the vaccination! It is important for the Health Freedom Movement to remember we are in good company: many brilliant historic figures were staunchly against mandatory vaccination, including Gandhi.

Dr. Larry Palevsky was the next speaker. Palevsky is a Pediatrician who was educated at NYU Medical School. He opened by stating how impressed he was with the size of the crowd. He then asked us all to imagine that there was only one car manufacturer in the country – and that manufacturer could not be sued for anything faulty with their car – and everyone was forced to buy the car. It is illegal to walk, you must buy an unsafe car and drive it. That is exactly what mandatory vaccination is today. He told the audience vaccine manufacturers have been immune from litigation since 1986. And he gave perhaps the most ominous warning of the forum:

All adults are going to be obligated to take that product as well.”

He is right; the narrative is steering in that direction as we speak.

Dr. Palvesky said in over 20 years that he has spent working with vaccine injured children, he can say the following injuries can and do result from vaccination:

Asthma, allergies, eczema, ear infections, sleep disorders, cancer, Autism, ADD/ADHD, sensory disorders, speech disorders, problems with motor coordination, behavioral problems, autoimmune disease, infertility, commas and death.

He then asked, “How many of you here know someone who has suffered from one of these?” and almost every hand in the room went up (mine included). Dr. Palevsky reminded the audience there is plenty of medical literature that shows what he has seen is the truth. To all of the parents who had children kicked out of school for not being vaccinated Palevsky said, “If you have to move (out of New York), then move.” In his medical opinion vaccination is not worth the risk.

Palevsky also warned that the Democratic National Committee (DNC) passed a resolution in August recognizing non-religious affiliation in our country as being on the rise and they desire to empower those people. Dr. Palevsky said the effect of this resolution will be an attempt t0 take away both the religious and conscientious beliefs of the individual. He said that he doubts if most elected Democratic officials are even aware of this resolution or it’s implications.

Palevsky ended by stating there is a lot in the medical literature that points to the fact that it is vaccinated children who are responsible for the spread of vaccine preventable diseases. This seems to be proving true right now, as there is a chicken pox outbreak in Rocky Point, NY schools even when all the unvaccinated children have been removed.

After Dr. Palevsky the parents were up to bat.

The first parent was Stephanie Mahairas. She is a major activist fighting for Health Freedom and Vaccine Rights in New York, and she is the mother of a vaccine injured child. Stephanie said her son was injured twice from vaccines. The first time her son got Kawasaki disease and the doctors said it was something environmental. Stephanie’s husband, who is an environmental attorney, was baffled by this as he knew there was nothing in his son’s environment that could’ve caused this. The second injury resulted in her son developing measles 20 days after getting the MMR vaccine – what Stephanie called “strain-A” which is not wild measles, it is a result of the vaccine. After that, “We lost him” said Stephanie as the crowd moaned when hearing this. He regressed and began to get violent, couldn’t walk straight, and then the services began. Occupational therapy, physical therapy, speech services and when he went to school he needed a 1-to-1 aid with him all the time. When she realized her son was suffering from vaccine injury she began to research how to heal from it. She studied the work of Dr. Gary Null and Dr. Larry Palevsky. Her son had a one-to-one assistant in school for 8 years. Today he is 13 years old, and it is the first year he does not need a 1-to-1 assistant in school. She ended by saying, “I will never, ever, ever stop fighting for children in this country” and she will never take a vaccine, or give one to her son, ever again.

Next was Sheila Ealey, and what a powerful, amazing, inspiring and insightful speech she gave! She spoke as a parent of a vaccine injured son, reminding everyone that her son was vaccine injured on the day he received the HIB, DTaP and a mistaken double dose of the MMR (as was featured in the movie VAXXED). Sheila went around the world searching for doctors to help her son, as she believed firmly her son was physically ill not simply Autistic. An MRI was done of her son’s brain and he had nothing in his temporal lobe – nothing at all! There had been absolutely no development. This is not a symptom of Autism. After Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans Sheila was homeless for a year. Around that time she got a call from a geneticist who spoke to her about mitochondrial disease and Sheila’s son became his first patient. He had to perform surgery by cutting a piece of his muscle tissue from the boy’s arm and sent it to a lab for an 8-month processing and found out that her son has Primary Mitochondrial Disease. She looked at the doctor and said, “Tell me this wasn’t from the vaccines,” and the doctor was unable to say that.

Sheila was told by other doctors at that time Black Children don’t get that disease, that it was a “rich White person’s disease.” Maybe that’s because rich White people were the only one’s paying the money for the expensive, lengthy lab tests at that time. Today it is a simple blood test. Sheila spoke about how America has never given Black people a fair chance, and still doesn’t. She detailed how African American slaves were subjects of medical experimentation against their will. And as I already said in the beginning of this report, it felt to me like Sheila was gently welcoming the White people in the audience to the world Black Americans have known for centuries. Sheila Ealey may be the most powerful and impactful Health Freedom Activist in the world today – her words have power that go beyond the material and resonate with spiritual intensity. She ended by saying,

“God didn’t promise you an easy way. But if you are faithful, he promised that he would be with you.”

We then heard from a parent activist from the Bronx who never vaccinated her children. She is a first generation American who recently had to quit one of her jobs to home school her children, and gave the following 4 pieces of advice:

  1. Follow Rita Palma on Facebook
  2. Become a member of Children’s Health Defense (donate)
  3. Know your elected officials in Albany, NY
  4. Join the New HPV & Flu Shot Awareness FB Group

John Gilmore spoke and gave a rundown of the 3 major bills we need to watch.

  1. Mandatory HPV Vaccine for all students
  2. Mandatory Flu shot for all students
  3. Kids can get vaccinated for STD’s without parental consent or knowledge

I cover these bills extensively at this blog and will continue to on a regular basis, so keep watching for my posts. When the session starts on January 8, 2020, this may be a priority of Democratic Leadership and may be voted on immediately. The time to act is right now!

“If we don’t take action,” said Gilmore, “things will get worse.”

Much worse.

Gilmore reminded us that it is the Democratic control of all 3 branches of Albany government that is allowing these horrible vaccine mandates to be passed. He also noted that the religious exemption was repealed in the Assembly only by a vote of 84 to 66, meaning we have a base of support in Albany we must tap into.

Shakira Moore spoke as a Holistic Iridology Practitioner, which is a holistic healing science that assesses health through observation and appearance of ones eyes. Her mother read Curtis Cost’s book “Vaccines Are Dangerous” when she was pregnant with Shakira and her twin brother. This helped her make the decision to not vaccinate and both of her children were extremely healthy children and are extremely healthy adults today. She credits Cost and her mother with saving her and her brother from the “poison needle.”

Cost reminded us that the repeal of the religious exemption to vaccination is largely about making sure no one knows that unvaccinated children are the healthiest children on the planet. I 100% agree with this statement.

Next was Reverend Dr. Phil Valentine who Cost introduced in the highest regard with the utmost respect for his knowledge, wisdom, activism and work. I had never heard of Valentine prior to this event. A few things are very clear about him – he is extremely knowledgeable and has helped hundreds of African American families receive religious exemptions to vaccination in New York. He said his exemptions were challenged in court three times by the Department of Education, and all three times he won. When he went to the courts to receive the transcripts for those three cases either the court transcripts had been sealed or lost, according to Valentine. He had a powerful message that covered a lot, including child sex trafficking where he even gave a little praise to President Donald Trump.

Valentine touched upon some issues that go way, way beyond the scope of Health Freedom. He called America “the bankrupt United States” which begins to get into the corruption of the Federal Reserve. This terminology I have also heard used from those who say that income tax is illegal, and is actually a voluntary system. If you look into this closely it turns out it is true. However just because the gangsters take our money illegally doesn’t mean they won’t put us in jail – by legal or illegal means. When the game is rigged, it’s rigged. It is very difficult to stand in the gangster’s courtroom, cite the gangster’s laws as to why the gangster has no authority over you, and walk out of that courtroom having won the day. Valentine is a very intelligent and interesting man. I hope to have the time to do more research on him and his work.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

“I read too much science, and I couldn’t unread it,” said RFK Jr. at the beginning of his speech at the historic Riverside Church, as he explained how he ended up in this battle over vaccination. He mentioned Porter Bridges who was the first child awarded $20 million due to vaccination causing his Autism. Bridges is still being paid from the trust fund set up by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to compensate vaccine injured children. Many years ago Sarah Bridges, Porter’s mother, brought hundreds of peer-review scientific documents to RFK and said to him “READ IT,” and he did.

Can’t unread it now.

RFK was of course involved in researching the dangers of mercury in fish during his work with Riverkeepers. Now he learned about thimerosol, the mercury preservative added to vaccines.

Kennedy said there is a “huge gap” between what CDC and the Health Services say about vaccines and what the scientific literature says. Because of his name and his family, RFK Jr. has (or maybe, had) access to the highest levels of government and health regulatory bodies. People such as Francis Collins, Toni Faucci, Kathleen Stratton and Paul Offit. When describing their responses to him about vaccine safety, Kennedy says, “They were unable to make any type of coherent sense.” RFK Jr. detailed a phone conversation he had with Paul Offit which is so telling, so revealing and so important, I am going to write a report on that topic alone.

The crowd was hanging on every word RFK Jr. had to say. It was the crucial, climactic moment of the conference – and then the church cut his microphone. Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who was at the beginning of a historic speech at The Riverside Church in Harlem, had that historic moment partially robbed from him by the Church itself.

I have been to dozens of social justice events – including at least 6 in the Riverside Church itself. I have never seen a speaker treated that way; ever. Sometimes they may get rushed, they may be asked to hurry, but I’ve never seen a microphone get completely cut to dead air. Yesterday Kennedy tweeted that not only was his mic cut and he was pushed out of the church, but in addition the police were called! I have already written about this controversy, so refer back to that report for all the details. You can watch RFK’s speech in full on Facebook by clicking here.
