There were other Democrats who were involved in odd “vote-flipping” such as Nader Sayegh and Richard Gottfried, who voted YES to repeal the religious exemption to vaccination in the Health Committee, but then NO on the floor. These Dems suck, and may stab us in the back again. We need to continue to apply pressure on them and remember they are not allies of ours.

As for the 19 Dems listed above please contact all or as many of these Democrats as you can and thank them for voting to protect religious and health freedoms in New York.Just click on their names and you will be taken to their official webpages. From their you can email or call them. I wish I could write about each and every one of them in this piece, but I can only cover so much:

Tom Abinanti fought valiantly for us on the floor of the Assembly and is a true Health Freedom Hero! He debated the sponsor of the repeal bill, Jeff Dinowitz, and Abinanti wiped the floor with him in the debate. I covered that at this website back in June in a piece called VACCINATION – THE AFTERMATH. Here is what I wrote about Abinanti at that time:

Assemblyman Tom Abinanti voted NO on this bill in the Health Committee as well as on the floor vote. He debated Assemblyman Dinowitz, the bill’s sponsor, on the floor of the assembly and completely dominated. When referencing the recent measles outbreak in New York Abinanti firmly stated multiple times: “We’ve seen no evidence that anyone with a religious exemption has endangered anyone else” Dinowitz didn’t even try to refute this. He couldn’t. No evidence exists at all! Abinanti also made the important point that in all the schools that were shutdown for having unvaccianted children in them, none of them had any cases of measles!

Charles Barron from Brooklyn fought for us valiantly as well in both the Assembly Health Committee and during the Assembly floor vote. Here is what I wrote about Barron back in June:

Assemblyman Barron – a former member of the Black Panther Party – pulled no punches when he made it very clear that vaccines can, and do, cause injury to some people. He said people will reference studies that say this is not possible, but “you can find a study that will say anything.” He said his evidence of vaccine injury comes from his own lived experience of meeting and talking to people with vaccine injured children.

Rodneyse Bichotte from Brooklyn voted NO in the Health Committee and NO on the floor of the Assembly to repealing the religious exemption to vaccination. Here is what I wrote about her back in June:

Assemblywoman Bichotte opposed the bill and said she was vaccinated with the MMR vaccine as a child and got the measles TWICE AFTER THAT! Can someone say #VACCINEFAILURE ?!? Bichotte, who is Haitian American, went on to boldly remind everyone that people had spread misinformation in the 1980’s that HIV/AIDS came from Haiti and Haitians. She was cutoff before she could finish her statement, but it was clear she was drawing a parallel to the ridiculous claims being made about unvaccinated children today.

Watch Bichotte comment after voting NO to repealing the religious exemption to vaccination:

David Weprin – Weprin was one of only two Queens Democrats to vote against repealing the religious exemption to vaccination. He is a man of faith and religious values are a part of his core values as a man and a human being. When speaking to constituents about the religious exemption to vaccination he often said getting rid of any legal religious exemption to anything is a “slippery slope.” Currently Weprin’s office has already arranged to meet with constituents regarding the new round of vaccine legislation we are facing in 2020. Thus far all signals appear to be that he remains in our corner.

King Cuomo's Royal Senate Court

The 10 Democratic Senators Who Cosign Cuomo’s Crimes

January 12, 2019 — King Cuomo has turned the New York Senate Health Committee into a rubber stamp for his criminal regulation to drug and vaccinate children without parental knowledge. There are 10 Democratic Senators who are doing whatever Cuomo wants when it comes to vaccine legislation – all of there pictures, names, phone numbers, emails, websites and twitter info are at the end of this report – contact them all!

Back on May 18, 2019, I published a report titled Democrats Disgraceful Vote detailing how these 10 Democratic Senators in the Health Committee all voted YES to allow children as young as 9-years-old to be vaccinated without parental consent. There were two very important facts I didn’t know at that time, which were;

1 – I didn’t know the bill – S3899a – will also allow for drugging of healthy, HIV-negative children with HIV-PrEP drugs, and,

2 – I didn’t know this was already being done illegally in New York schools under a regulation that King Cuomo signed with his royal pen in 2017.

Make no mistake about this – King Cuomo’s regulation is illegal!

So now he needs this law to cover for the fact that his regulation was clearly illegal by making it “legal” retroactively. Good thing for Cuomo he has 10 morally bankrupt Senators in the Health Committee who have already blindly cosigned his crime by voting YES to cover for it. The bill has not yet passed the entire Senate and its companion bill in the Assembly has not yet made it to the Assembly Health Committee to my knowledge.

Just a few days ago on January 8th, Senate bill # S298b that would make the HPV vaccine mandatory to attend school was referred to the Senate Health Committee. So I am sure the King’s Royal Senate Court of 10 will be mindlessly voting “YES” to this bill as well!

Some people have told me, “Do not compliment Cuomo by calling him a King!”

It is no compliment to call an American Governor a King.

Let’s not forget, this country was founded on complete rejection and visceral hatred of Britain’s King George. The cornerstone of the American Revolution was that America would never allow a king to gain power in our country ever again. Cuomo is signing regulations and forcing through laws in his budget (such as drugging children and bail reform) that bypass the legislative process entirely, completely taking away New Yorkers voices on these matters. I wonder how the colonists of the 1770s would react to this now!

It’s important to note that the Senate Health Committee – and the Senate as a whole body – has fallen into corruption that reminds me of how the Senate of the Roman Empire eventually fell. Since it is under Democratic control effectively all of the Senate Democrats must do whatever his royal highness King Cuomo says (with maybe 3 exceptions). However the Assembly is not quite as far gone in the same fashion. Democratic members of the Assembly have historically been able to stand against King Cuomo successfully. We have at least 16 Democrats in the Assembly who have shown they are pro-Health Freedom when they voted NO to repealing the religious exemption to vaccination. I will be posting a report on those 16 Assemblymembers soon, as we need to thank them for being brave, independent, honorable lawmakers.

Below is a list of the 10 Disgraceful Democrats who are nothing but a King Cumo rubber-stamp. Go tell each and everyone exactly how you feel about them:

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:

***

Below from John Gilmore

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.

Twitter Censors Fed Up Dem Over King Cuomo Tweet

January 1, 2020 – On New Year’s Eve of 2019 Twitter immediately censored a tweet of mine promoting a report titled, “Cuomo Vaxxing & Drugging Kids With No Parental Knowledge.” Eileen Iorio informed me of this when she went to view the tweet and couldn’t – she received the above message stating:

This Tweet may include sensitive content. In order to view it, you’ll need to change your sensitive media selection. You can find this under the Safety section of your Privacy and safety account settings.

What is “sensitive” about my tweet? That it made truthful allegations against New York Governor Andrew Cuomo? Here is the tweet that is being censored:

Twitter seems to be fronting for Cuomo and Big Pharma just like Facebook is.

Cuomo recently wrote a public statement telling Facebook to remove “deceptive advertisements” on Facebook that question the safety and efficacy of PrEP drugs, which are alleged to prevent transmission of HIV. He called the ads “unwarranted and unacceptable,” however he never named any specific ads or content. You can read Cuomo’s statement at the governor’s website:

https://www.governor.ny.gov/news/governor-andrew-m-cuomo-calls-facebook-remove-deceptive-ads-hiv-prevention-drug-truvada

Facebook did remove many of the ads.

Some of those advertisements were for lawsuits against the PrEP drug manufacturer, which are currently being litigated in court. The class-action lawsuits are using ads to find people who took PrEP drugs and suffered specific side effects, many of which are listed on the manufacturers package insert.

This comes right as Cuomo is a huge supporter of passing a law to allow children to be vaccinated and given PrEP at school without parental knowledge or consent. In 2017 Cuomo signed a “regulation” allowing children to receive PrEP at school without parental knowledge or consent. That regulation is illegal, and Cuomo needs a law to validate the insane regulation he, and he alone, was responsible for.

Can we see a conflict of interest here?

Of course Cuomo asked Facebook to take down ads promoting valid lawsuits against PrEP – it could stop the legislation that he wants that will retroactively make his illegal regulation from 2017 “legal.”

Oppose This Legislation – it is dangerous & deadly!

Cuomo Vaxxing & Drugging Kids With No Parental Knowledge

Who cares if it’s illegal when King Cuomo can “regulate” it?

December 31, 2019 — In 2017, Cuomo signed a regulation in New York allowing children to be given “preventative treatments” for STDs without parental knowledge or consent, according to John Gilmore. The list of STDs King Cuomo is allowing children to be preventatively vaccinated and drugged for behind mommy and daddy’s back include:

  • HIV/AIDS (PrEP drugs)
  • HPV (vaccine)
  • HEP-B (vaccine)

…and more is sure to come.

But there is no law that allows for this, only a regulation signed by King Cuomo.

Now you may say, “But if a 16-year-old tests positive for HIV and wants treatment without telling their parents we need to allow that.”

That’s not what this is.

The 2017 regulation allows perfectly healthy, HIV negative children to “consent” to receiving daily doses of PrEP which is alleged to prevent the transmission of HIV, and parents are told nothing. PrEP is admitted to cause kidney damage, liver failure and osteoporosis, and there are lawsuits against the drug manufacturer related to these side effects in court right now.

According to John Gilmore, “New York law (already) allows “treatment” for STDs to be given to minors without parental knowledge or consent and has for more than 40 years, but the law specifically did not include “preventive” measures, which explains the need for S3899a and A973a.”

If bills S3899a in the NY Senate and A973a in the Assembly are passed they will bring us the law that will make Cuomo’s illegal regulation from 2017 “legal” (retroactively I suppose).

So King Cuomo needs this law, and he needs it ASAP, otherwise all types of bad things might happen to his majesty. If he loses his Democratic super-majority in the 2020 election cycle it wouldn’t be hard to see him on the hook for lawsuits. You may remember in July BRONX-12 News reported an 11-year-old boy was vaccinated with the HPV vaccine Gardasil in school without permission from his parent. It is the 2017 regulation from Cuomo that allowed that to happen, and that 11-year-old boy was certainly not the only case where this occurred. His mother has just been the only one to speak up publicly thus far, and it appears Black and Latino children are the primary targets of this regulation. New York City is moving forward full-steam to vaccinate children with Gardasil behind parents backs. If they get away with this, there will be more secret vaccination in schools; all that’s needed is a “regulation” from King Cuomo!

King Cuomo may believe he – and he alone – is allowed to get rid of parental consent when it comes to medical procedures performed on our children, but he is dead wrong; his 2017 regulation is an illegal act by his royal highness. After all he is only a Governor, not an entire legislature, and not the monarch he behaves as (no matter what he may believe). Now the Olean Times Herald is reporting that Cuomo will make Gardasil mandatory for children to attend school by placing it in the State budget since the legislature seems unwilling to pass such a bill this session.

More mandates from the King!

All hail King Cuomo!!!

Who needs a legislative body unless it does what the King says, right?

As already stated, the 2017 regulation is allowing for vaccines that are alleged to protect against STDs to be given without parental consent, such as the HPV Gardasil and HEP-B vaccines: and let’s not forget vaccine manufacturers can’t be sued if their product injures or kills children.

Should we be giving these medical treatments to children without parents knowing? Sure! What could possibly go wrong?!

Oppose This Legislation – it is dangerous & deadly!

Queens Residents Blast Senator Liu for Vaccine Laws

He Kicked Disabled Children Out of all NY Schools…

Now he may force YOUR KID to be vaccinated with HPV Vaccine!

December 26, 2019 — State Senator John Liu is poised to vote YES to bill S3899a that would allow New York children to be vaccinated for any sexually transmitted disease (including HPV) in school without parental knowledge or consent. That bill will also allow preventative drug treatment of STDs for children without parents knowing – including PrEP for HIV/AIDS. Constituents in Queens confronted Senator Liu on December 5th in front of his Bayside office. The exchange was broadcast by BaysideLiveTV.com which has been viewed on Facebook over 8,000 times at the following link:

When asked if he would want to know if his own children had a medical procedure performed on them Liu said,

“Well I certainly would want to know what is happening with my own kids. But I also do, I am also aware that some things, do, happen to my kids that I don’t necessarily know everything about, and I don’t know exactly what kinds of…

At this point Senator Liu looked down into the eyes of a very young girl in front of him and said,

Well, does your mom know every single thing about you?”

So he wants to know what’s happening to his own kids, but maybe he might not know what’s happening with his kids, so maybe it’s ok if the state does things to his kids that he doesn’t know about…or something like that. Basically Liu is saying whatever Governor Cuomo and Senate Majority Leader Stewart-Cousins tell him to do, he’s going to do it.

A mother responded to Liu, “If (my kids) are getting medical care, medical treatment at school, don’t you think I should know about it before it happens?”

“I think we should know,” responded liu, “but I’m also not sure that the bill is as simple as what you bring it out to be.”

It is that simple.

The bill will allow “treatments” alleged to prevent STD’s to be given to children without parental knowledge or consent. Based on Liu’s statements he should vote NO to this bill if he has any conviction regarding his own beliefs. Unfortunately his short track-record as a state Senator shows he has little to no true conviction of belief; he will follow the party-line whatever it is. When asked who should have ultimate authority over children, parents or the state, Liu responded:

“Parents should have the ultimate responsibility, however…the state also has the business of protecting parents, and doing what parents generally want. And I understand your opinions – let me get a word in here – I understand you have very strong opinions and I respect that, about the vaccine issue; it is the minority opinion.”

Interesting choice of words: so parents will have the responsibility of taking care of their child if the child experiences adverse reactions from the vaccines or drugs the state gave the child behind the parents’ back. However the ultimate authority over children will be the state, not the parent, according to Liu’s cryptic language.

“And now because we are a minority you are going to go behind our backs and do it anyway,” responded one mother.

“Nobody went behind anybody’s back,” said Liu.

When Liu voted YES to repealing the religious exemption to vaccination he told constituents he “hadn’t made a decision” on how he was going to vote all the way up until 2 hours before he voted on June 13, 2019. I can understand why some constituents felt he “went behind their backs” when his vote was done in this fashion.

Constituents met with Senator Liu about the religious exemption to vaccination as early as February 21, 2019, when the freshman Senator was meeting constituents in public libraries while he stated his office was ‘under construction.’ At that meeting constituents who choose to not vaccinate themselves or their children due to religious beliefs were identified as a minority group. By the end of the meeting Liu stated, “You are a minority group. In America we protect minority groups.”

I guess we don’t protect minority groups in America any longer.

During the December 5th confrontation in front of Senator Liu’s office, Liu danced around the issue of whether he would take away parents’ rights to determine medical procedures performed on their children. He said he couldn’t answer constituents “single sentence questions” because the issues were more complex than that. But they gave him the legislation, and asked for his opinion on it which he would not give.

Read the bill John – have an opinion and state it. Stop being gutless!

This wasn’t the first time John Liu was confronted about children being vaccinated with the HPV vaccine and other vaccination laws. Bonnie Skala Kiladitis, whose children were kicked out of school when John Liu voted YES to repeal the religious exemption to vaccination, has been confronting Liu in public as often as she can. Last month she confronted the Senator and it was covered by the Queens Chronicle, which quoted her as follows:

“My child hasn’t been in school in weeks, and I do hold you accountable,” (Bonnie) said freely from the audience. “You pretended that you cared about my family, and then you voted against us.”
