The “Spanish Flu” killed an estimated 50-100 million people during a pandemic 1918-19. What if the story we have been told about this pandemic isn’t true? What if, instead, the killer infection was neither the flu nor Spanish in origin? Newly analyzed documents reveal that the “Spanish Flu” may have been a military vaccine experiment gone awry. In looking back on the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I, we need to delve deeper to solve this mystery.
Summary from Part 1 (1):
- The Spanish Flu was neither Spanish nor Flu. According to the NIH, the “predominant” killer in 1918-19 was bacterial pneumonia, and the first cases appear to be on U.S. military bases. .
- A bacterial vaccine experiment on soldiers at Fort Riley, Kansas is one of the epicenters of the epidemic.
- The treatments and vaccines used on soldiers were made in horses at the Rockefeller Institute in New York (and in NJ). The same horses were used to prepare multiple serums for multiple pathogens.
- During WW1, the Rockefeller Institute sent similar batches of the anti-meningococcic serum derived from horses which were used on US soldiers to England, France, Belgium, Italy, and other countries.
- When WW1 ended, soldiers returned to their home countries and colonial outposts, spreading the killer bacterial pneumonia worldwide.
- Vaccine experiments like those on soldiers in WW1 continue today, often targeting vulnerable or captive populations.
Summary from Part 2 (2):
- Dutch veterinarian Emile Bemelmans observed in 1918-19 that “Spanish Flu” attacked the lungs of horses and humans was identical. At the time, he was dismissed because he was a veterinarian.
- A 1919 report from Camp Hancock in Georgia describes soldiers’ pulmonary emphysema and the extraordinary damage done to their lungs by the mystery bacteria.
- Horses have a similar condition called the “Strangles” because the fluid in the lungs strangles the horse. Did the vaccines and treatments made from horse serum cause an inter-species pathogen transfer?
- Pulmonary emphysema is nearly identical in humans and horses.
- Could the horse-serum-derived vaccine experiments on WW1 soldiers have caused a virulent disease that ripped apart human lungs in a way never seen before, and killed up to 50-100 million people in 1918-19?
- Did the “Spanish Flu” epidemic end in 1919 because there were no longer millions of soldiers to inject with an experimental vaccine?
One of the reasons medical/pharmaceutical hubris survived for 100 years is there was not even a recall mechanism for drugs until 1962. It took the Thalidomide disaster to motivate policy makers to understand that drug makers and the medical community make mistakes. (3) Wearing lab coats and stethoscopes does not make you infallible. The drug industry policed themselves, or rather did NOT police themselves, prior to 1962.
Certainly no one was policing drugs or vaccines in 1918. Dr. Frederick L. Gates wrote the 1918 Fort Riley paper describing the vaccine experiment on soldiers. Dr. Gates worked at the Rockefeller Institute in New York, installed there by his father Rev. Frederick T. Gates, John D. Rockefeller’s right hand man and business manager.
EUGENIC IDEAS SUPPORT THE VACCINIAN RELIGION
What is Eugenics? Eugenics is from the Greek and means “well born”. Eugenics is a belief system which argues it is possible to improve the human race and society by encouraging reproduction by people or populations with “desirable” traits and
discouraging reproduction by people with “undesirable qualities.” Eugenics believers worship “science”, believing that their actions, which impact others, are justified by the greater good and the general welfare of society. In the late 19th and early 20th century, Eugenics was a very popular belief system of those at the top of society. Harvard was the epicenter of Eugenic beliefs in the early 20th century. (4)
John D. Rockefeller and his lackey Rev. Gates were proponents of the racist Eugenics movement of the time. They were elitists and racists in all ways. Even when Rockefeller tried to do good with his enormous resources, like funding public education, the good was infused with Eugenic ideas around race and superiority of wealthy white Protestants.
In 1913, Rev. Gates wrote about the goals of public education for the non-elite masses. The goal was to make the masses yield to the “molding hand” of their elite superiors. Unlike the relatively enlightened Founding Fathers of the United States, the Eugenicists of the early 20th century threw off the concept that all men were created equal. The elite and powerful in the early 1900’s knew better than the masses and the Founders, and they sought methods to control the population for the “greater good”. Rev. Gates didn’t mince words. He wrote:
“In our dream we have limitless resources, and the people yield themselves with perfect docility to our molding hand. The present educational conventions fade from our minds; and, unhampered by tradition, we work our own good will upon a grateful and responsive rural folk. We shall not try to make these people or any of their children into philosophers or men of learning or of science. We are not to raise up among them authors, orators, poets, or men of letters. We shall not search for embryo great artists, painters, musicians. Nor will we cherish even the humbler ambition to raise up from among them lawyers, doctors, preachers, statesmen, of whom we now have ample supply." (5)
In treating the soldiers he experimented on at Fort Riley as guinea pigs, it’s clear that the Eugenic beliefs of the father certainly were transferred to his son Dr. Gates. There is no evidence that Dr. Gates viewed the soldiers as anything more than human subjects to experiment on to serve what the Eugenicists viewed as “the greater good”.
Eugenic attitudes of the time seem archaic now, but Eugenics belief were quite common and out in the open. Eugenic attitudes also infected the Supreme Court. In Buck v. Bell, a 1927 case, Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. wrote an 8-1 opinion in favor of forced sterilization. Holmes, like many other Harvard elites (his father, Holmes Sr., was a professor at Harvard for 35 years), supported racist beliefs and supported the state’s police power to genetically cleanse those the state deemed “undesirable”. Holmes compared sterilization laws to vaccine mandate laws. Holmes lamented that the sterilization law only applied to those who were institutionalized in some manner, and not to the “multitudes outside” of institutions. Holmes Jr. wrote:
“Carrie Buck is the probable potential parent of socially inadequate offspring, likewise afflicted, that she may be sexually sterilized without detriment to her general health, and that her welfare and that of society will be promoted by her sterilization… We have seen more than once that the public welfare may call upon the best citizens for their lives. It would be strange if it could not call upon those who already sap the strength of the State for these lesser sacrifices, often not felt to be such by those concerned, in order to prevent our being swamped with incompetence. It is better for all the world if, instead of waiting to execute degenerate offspring for crime or to let them starve for their imbecility, society can prevent those who are manifestly unfit from continuing their kind. The principle that sustains compulsory vaccination is broad enough to cover cutting the Fallopian tubes. Three generations of imbeciles are enough.
But, it is said, however it might be if this reasoning were applied generally, it fails when it is confined to the small number who are in the institutions named and is not applied to the multitudes outside … Of course, so far as the operations enable those who otherwise must be kept confined to be returned to the world, and thus open the asylum to others, the equality aimed at will be more nearly reached.” (6)
Holmes argued that state, in the interest of the “public welfare”, could force sterilize someone the state deemed unworthy. This is the same attitude which Nazi Germany used to justify its horrific actions in the 1930-40s. The barbaric beliefs which throughout history have periodically led states to commit atrocities against their citizens, and against other countries’ citizens, led directly to the Universal Declaration on Bioethics and Human Rights (2005).
20th CENTURY EUGENICS PRINCIPLES AND BELIEFS LIVE ON IN 21st CENTURY VACCINE MANDATES
Dr. Stanley Plotkin, considered by some as the Godfather of the modern US vaccine program, describes how he experimented on orphans, the mentally handicapped, children of women in prison, and people under colonial rule. (8) Like his Eugenic predecessors, he consistently sought out the least powerful populations he could find to conduct medical experiments on humans. Dr. Plotkin explains that he is an Atheist, which makes it easier to understand how he could act in such a way. He is free to play God, and use 76 aborted human fetuses to develop vaccines, in part because he does not believe in God. (10) He apparently believes in capital S “Science”. He appears to embrace medical hubris. He appears to be a member of the Vaccinian faith. It is not clear to what extent Dr. Plotkin's beliefs are influenced by receiving financial compensation by each of the Big 4 pharma families (Merck, Pfizer, Sanofi, Glaxo). (11)
There is a mythology that Eugenics disappeared after the Nazi atrocities of WWII. Eugenics did not disappear. It was simply rebranded as the science of Human Genetics in 1949. An article on the History News Network explains:
"After the war, eugenics was declared a crime against humanity--an act of genocide. Germans were tried and they cited the California statutes in their defense. To no avail. They were found guilty.
However, Mengele's boss Verschuer escaped prosecution. Verschuer re-established his connections with California eugenicists who had gone underground and renamed their crusade "human genetics." ... Soon, Verschuer once again became a respected scientist in Germany and around the world. In 1949, he became a corresponding member of the newly formed American Society of Human Genetics, organized by American eugenicists and geneticists." (12)
THE VACCINIAN FAITH: EUGENIC VACCINIANS VS. ATHEIST VACCINIANS
The hut where Edward Jenner first exposed humans to cow pus is called the Temple of Vaccinia. (13) It is the high holy place for Vaccinians. The word Vaccine comes from the Latin word “vacca”, which means cow. Jenner first coined the word.
Almost all religions have some beliefs which require a leap of faith. The Vaccinian religion is no different. Christians believe that Jesus turned water into wine. The belief in this miracle requires a leap of faith - it can not be proven. Jews believe a one day supply of oil lasted eight days at Masada. The belief in this miracle requires a leap of faith - it can not be proven. Vaccinians believe the words “unavoidably unsafe” can spontaneously change into the words “safe and effective”. (14) The belief in this miracle requires a leap of faith - it can not be proven.
Dr. Plotkin appears to be an Atheist Vaccinian. Atheist Vaccinians do not believe in God, so they do not try to justify their uncaring views regarding those less powerful than themselves in society with established religious beliefs.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr (and Sr.) appear to represent the Eugenic Vaccinians. In the early 20th century, many Eugenic Vaccinians tried to rinse their uncaring views through Scripture.
While I support the rights of both branches of the Vaccinians faith to freely exercise their beliefs under the First Amendment, I do not support the Vaccinians imposing their beliefs onto members of other religions.
THE FIRST AMENDMENT PROHIBITS GOVERNMENT FAVORING THE VACCINIAN FAITH OVER OTHER FAITHS
The First Amendment to the constitution of the United States prohibits establishing a national religion and it protects citizen's rights to freely exercise their religious beliefs: the “Establishment Clause” and the “Free Exercise” clause.
The First Amendment reads:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
The Establishment Clause means that the United States will not establish a state religion. The Founding Fathers saw the problems state religions caused 1500-1776 and chose a different path. It was so important to them that freedom of religion is the first freedom mentioned in the first amendment (and it's the reason this organization is called First Freedoms). Government is not allowed to favor on religion over another. Governments in the United States have favored the Vaccinian faith for far too long.
Vaccines as a product are classified as “unavoidably unsafe”. This is the main reason why vaccines have liability protection. Practitioners of the Vaccinian faith market vaccines as “safe and effective” despite knowing vaccines as a product are considered unavoidably unsafe. Vaccines are unavoidably unsafe for many reasons. Vaccines involve using aborted fetal cell lines, involve injecting DNA from other species, and involve many other things which violate the religious beliefs of non-Vaccinians.
Vaccinians expressly believe that tampering with the human immune system is a good idea. This is a belief rooted in Eugenics. This belief conflicts with the beliefs of many other religions. Vaccinians believe that the State should mandate vaccines and that the state should override the informed consent rights of individuals and parents.
The states must not favor the Vaccinian faith over other faiths in violation of the Establishment Clause and the Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment. Like the US Constitution, most state Constitutions prohibit the establishment of a state religion.
If the United States decides take the drastic step of establishing the Vaccinian faith as a national religion, it should be done in a constitutional manner. The first step would be repealing the First Amendment.
Hopefully policy makers will uphold the spirit of First Amendment and reject the Vaccinian faith as a national religion.
