Vaccines: Truth Hiding in Plain Sight!

I’ve written quite a few postings about vaccines. I’ll probably keep right on writing about them, ‘cos the whole scene has pretty much blown my mind! [all the vaccines postings are listed together on the right-hand side of the main page of this site.]

And because it’s important!

To me, the single simplest & smartest thing you can do if you still have faith in the vaccine paradigm, is



So ... What’s the Deal With "Inserts"?

Vaccines arrive (at the doctor’s office) accompanied by these “inserts” or monographs. They provide a great deal of information about vaccines, dosage, adverse drug reactions, side effects & what to do about them. (more on this shortly.)

The really mysterious thing about them is that they are not actually offered to “patients,” i.e., parents who come in with their young infant or toddler

for a “well baby” visit!

The medical profession, the “health care” profession, tells us almost nothing about vaccines. We are just supposed to have faith in them, apparently

‘cos the doctor tells us to.

(The media also counsel us to have faith too, of course. There is more I could say about that, but I’m keeping this post simple. Just the inserts!)

& to get the insert from your M.D.? You pretty much have to beg for them. They don’t part with them any too readily!

So, I’m going to paste in here some information from the MMR (measles, mumps and rubella) vaccine monograph.

You can locate this information for yourself, here.

Bear in mind, this information comes from the pharmaceutical industry itself. Right from the horse’s mouth, as it were.

The MMR Monograph or “Insert”

I’m pasting in a few juicy bits from the MMR monograph. By all means, I recommend highly that you look extremely carefully over the ‘Contraindications,’ ‘Warnings,’ ‘Adverse Reactions’ (this section begins on pg. 7) and ‘Side Effects and What to Do about Them’ (pg. 21) sections.

But PLEASE! Look over the entire thing, as there are surprises in pretty much every section of this 23-page item. (I suggest you print it out & sit down with a cuppa tea or whatever, & pore over it carefully.  ALL THE WAY THROUGH.)



As with all injectable vaccines, appropriate medical treatment and supervision should be readily available in case of a rare anaphylactic event following the administration of the vaccine. [pg. 5]

Under Special Populations

PRIORIX should be given with caution to persons with a history or family history of allergic diseases or those with a history or family history of convulsions. [pg. 5]




Post-Market Adverse Drug Reactions

During post-marketing surveillance, the following reactions have been rarely reported additionally in temporal association with PRIORIX vaccination:

Infections and infestations: meningitis, measles-like syndrome, mumps-like syndrome (including orchitis, epididymitis and parotitis)

Blood and lymphatic system disorders: thrombocytopenia, thrombocytopenic purpura Immune system disorders: anaphylactic reactions

Nervous system disorders: encephalitis, cerebellitis, cerebellitis like symptoms (including transient gait disturbance and transient ataxia), aseptic meningitis, transverse myelitis, Guillain Barré syndrome, peripheral neuritis

Vascular disorders: vasculitis (including Henoch Schonlein purpura and Kawasaki syndrome)

Skin and subcutaneous tissue disorders: erythema multiforme Musculoskeletal and connective tissue disorders: arthralgia, arthritis [pg. 9]



[QUOTE] Like all vaccines, PRIORIX may occasionally cause unwanted effects.

As with all injectable vaccines, there is a rare risk of allergic reactions. The signs of allergy may include local or widespread skin rash that may be itchy or blistering, swelling of the eyes and face, difficulty in breathing or swallowing which may lead to collapse. These reactions will usually occur before leaving the doctor’s office. However, you should seek immediate treatment in any event.

Side effects that occurred during clinical trials with PRIORIX were as follows:

Very common: ³ 10%
• Redness at the injection site

• Fever ³38°C (rectal) or ³37.5°C (axillary/oral) Common: ³ 1% and < 10%

• Upper respiratory tract infection
• Rash
• Pain and swelling at the injection site
• Fever >39.5°C (rectal) or >39°C (axillary/oral)

Uncommon: ³ 0.1% and < 1%

• Infection of the middle ear
• Swollen glands in the neck, armpit or groin
• Loss of appetite
• Nervousness, abnormal crying, not being able to sleep (insomnia )
• Discharge with itching of the eyes and crusty eyelids (conjunctivitis)
• Bronchitis, cough
• Swollen glands in the cheek • Diarrhoea, vomiting

Rare: ³ 0.01% and < 0.1% • Allergic reactions

• Seizures with fever

After the marketing of PRIORIX, the following additional side effects have been rarely reported:
• Infection around the brain or spinal cord (meningitis)

Measles-like symptoms
Mumps-like symptoms (including transient, painful swelling of the testicles and swollen glands in the neck)
• Bleeding or bruising more easily than normal due to a drop in a type of blood cell called platelets, unusual bleeding or bruising under the skin
Infection or inflammation of the brain, spinal cord and peripheral nerves resulting in temporary difficulty when walking (unsteadiness) and/or temporary loss of control of bodily movements), inflammation of some nerves, possibly with pins and needles or loss of feeling or normal movement (Guillain-Barré syndrome)

• Narrowing or blockage of blood vessels. This may include unusual bleeding or bruising under the skin (Henoch Schonlein purpura) or fever which lasts for more than five days, associated with a rash on the trunk sometimes followed by a peeling of the skin on the hands and fingers, red eyes, lips, throat and tongue (Kawasaki disease)

Severe condition of the skin that may affect the mouth and other parts of the body

Joint and muscle pains

If the child develops any other symptom within days following the vaccination, tell the doctor as soon as possible.

This is not a complete list of side effects. For any unexpected effects while taking PRIORIX, contact your doctor or pharmacist.

Final Comments

Yikes, no?? Did you know about all these possible side effects?

Doesn’t it seem reasonable to you that your “health professional” should go over this material about possible injuries/health/side effects with you ahead of time? So that you can provide your genuinely informed consent BEFORE your child is vaccinated?

Sure seems that way to me. Just the very most basic common sense!

I strongly suggest that you go to this spot on the Vaccine Choice Canada Web site

& scan it over carefully to find the section that tells you how to find what vaccines are recommended for your infant/toddler/child/ren at her/his particular age (in your particular part of Canada)

& then go & find product monographs or inserts for each of the vaccines proposed for her/him.


Important note: these shots are not given one by one, but in multiples/combinations, & this is very problematic.

Bear in mind what this Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons summer 2016 piece reveals: “Combining Childhood Vaccines at One Visit is Not Safe.”


Related items on this site

There are a bunch of postings listed on the right-hand side of the main page (& a collection of vaccine-related quotations, here).

This posting, Vaccines: Miscellany A - Z has an A – Z of information, including a section called Media Blackout that explains why we are not being told the truth about vaccines, their safety & efficacy (or lack thereof), & about the alarming frequency of vaccine injury, by our so-called “free press.” It’s important to understand this!

There is also a section on “vaccine mandates” that provides you with a link to the Vaccine Choice Canada main page, with information about vaccine exemptions. This too is super-important!


** I cannot recommend highly enough the Vaccine Choice Canada Web site! VCC also has a Facebook page & Twitter account.

** A quick route to product monographs for ALL vaccines can be found on the Got Your Flu Shot? Web site.

p.s. since I posted this, I learned about 2 babies in Samoa who died from MMR vaccinations. Please watch this very short video to learn more about this horrible situation. Note! The video is on Facebook. If you want to learn even more detail about this (& various other vaccine-related matters), you can also watch the latest episode of Highwire, with Del Bigtree. The July 12th episode is here (also on Facebook. I think they get put on YouTube eventually).


I am not an “obedient” person

No one would ever call me obedient.


Never have been

Likely never could be


Too much plain rambunctiousness in me!

It leaks out

Bursts out

It's just not under my rational control!


  • Anger
  • Joy
  • Amazement
  • Love
  • Outrage
  • Tears


No idea why

It’s just the way I am

The way I am wired.


Oh sure.

I can be “cowed”

I’ve been cowed


Angry men scare/sober us all, hmmmm?

Make us put our heads down

Sit on our hands

Silence our voices.


But WHY are there all these angry men?

Isn’t that what we should be asking ourselves?


“The patriarchy is a wounded beast,” said Jane Fonda recently. “And nothing is more dangerous than a wounded beast."


Check out what Howard Zinn had to say about obedience


Obedience, part II

What are we too obedient to?


The culture. Too obedient to an insane culture

That demands we drink gallons (& gallons & gallons) of (poisoned) Kool-Aid.


Broadly speaking, the bullies

  • Big Religion
  • Big Pharma / Big Medicine
  • Big military-industrial complex
  • Big Agriculture
  • Big Chemical
  • Big Fossil Fuels
  • Big Financial
  • Big Advertising
  • Big government / Big bureaucracy (any bureaucracy)

Then too, there are those little forces

  • conventions
  • family pressures
  • social pressures


(& there are the little bullies.

'cos some of us become bullies

since the bullied often become the bully, hmmmm?)


They all have plenty of rules.

There’s a hierarchy you must report through, hmmmm?


Depending on which Big Bully you're talking about

You must listen to

The man above you

Who reports to the man above him

Who reports to The Man at The Top

(they are still mostly men)


You know, the guys “in charge”

The ones who buy us with the jobs

(or the promises of Heaven?)


So we’ll all go on being consumers & cannon fodder for The Machine.


For the bullies.

The ones in charge.

The ones with all the power & most of the money.


Not a pretty picture, is it?


What are we not obedient enough to?

  • Common sense
  • Our hearts
  • Love
  • Logic / reason / our sharp minds
  • Truth
  • The niggling voice inside our heads that tells us often (less & less frequently over time, if we always silence it)

“This is a great big huge pile of crap!”


Obedience, part III

Never mind being “obedient”

To (a succession of) angry men

(Or just cowed men, men with no real spirit left inside them

… or women who’ve become just like the men they are slavishly imitating)




Born of patriarchy

Ancient hierarchies

Unearned privilege & entitlements

Millenia of your freaking bloody obedience


Screw patriarchy!

Screw obedience!


We need our spirits

Strong & free!






Some Semi-Random Quotations

“Wonders never ceased. Nor, Duckworth thought, did the public’s willingness to be conned.” – from Parting Shot, a mystery novel by Linwood Barclay

“For the great enemy of truth is very often not the lie – deliberate, contrived, and dishonest – but the myth – persistent, persuasive, and unrealistic. Too often we hold fast to the clichés of our forbears. We subject all facts to a prefabricated set of interpretations. We enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought.” – John F. Kennedy

“There is not a problem with the system. The system is the problem.” – Source unknown

“I would not interfere with any creed of yours or want to appear that I have all the cures. There is so much to know… so many things are true… The way my feet must go may not be best for you. And so I give this spark of what is light to me, to guide you through the dark, but not tell you what to see.” – Author unknown

“Often the voice of conscience whispers / Often we silence it / Always we have to pay.” – Cletus Nelson Nwadike, Nigerian poet, Left Curve (# 28) – Utne Reader, May/June 2005

“Every revolution evaporates and leaves behind only the slime of a new bureaucracy.” – Franz Kafka

“All evolution in thought and conduct must at first appear as heresy and misconduct.” – George Bernard Shaw

“Even if you’re on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there.” – Will Rogers

“If only it were all so simple! If only there were evil people somewhere insidiously committing evil deeds, and it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them. But the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being. And who is willing to destroy a piece of his own heart?” – Alexsandr Solzhenitsyn, exiled Russian novelist, quoted in Yes! (Winter 2002) – Utne Nov-Dec 2002

“The universe is a communion of subjects, not a collection of objects.” – Thomas Berry

“If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is, infinite.” ~ William Blake – quoted in Awakening Intuition – Using Your Mind-Body Network for Insight and Healing by Dr. Mona Lisa Schulz

“Energy always flows either toward hope, community, love, generosity, mutual recognition, and spiritual aliveness or it flows toward despair, cynicism, fear that there is not enough, paranoia about the intentions of others, and a desire to control.” ~ Michael Lerner, quoted in The Great Turning – From Empire to Earth Community, by David Korten

“Above all else, the mentat [advisor] must be a generalist, not a specialist. It is wise to have decisions of great moment monitored by generalists. Experts and specialists lead you quickly into chaos. They are a source of useless nit-picking, the ferocious quibble over a comma. The generalist, on the other hand, should bring to decision-making a healthy common sense. He must cut himself off from the broad sweep of what is happening in his universe. He must remain capable of saying: “There’s no real mystery about that at the moment. This is what we want now. It may prove wrong later, but we’ll correct that when we come to it.”

The generalist must understand that anything that we can identify as our universe is merely part of a larger phenomenon. But the expert looks backward; he looks into the narrow standards of his own specialty. The generalist looks outward; he looks for living principles, knowing full well that such principles change, that they develop.

It is to the characteristics of change that the generalist must look. There can be no permanent catalogue of such change, no handbook or manual. You must look at it with as few preconceptions as possible, asking yourself: “Now what is this thing doing?” – ‘The Mentat Handbook’ quoted as “The Wisdom of Dune,” by Frank Herbert, in CCPA Monitor, April 2008

“No burden is heavy if everyone lifts.” ~ Sy Wise

“Every time we turn our heads the other way when we see the law flouted, when we tolerate what we know to be wrong, we close our eyes and ears to the corrupt because we are too busy or frightened to speak up or speak out, we strike a blow against freedom and decency and justice.” – Robert F. Kennedy

“There is only one courage, and that is the courage to go on dying to the past. Not to collect it, not to accumulate it, not to cling to it. We all cling to the past, and because we cling to it we become unavailable to the present.” – Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh


A Divine Invitation

You have been invited to meet

The Friend


No one can resist a Divine Invitation.

That narrows down all our choices

To just two:


We can come to God

Dressed for Dancing,



Be carried on a stretcher

To God’s Ward.  – Hafiz, translation by Daniel Ladinsky, *I Heard God Laughing*

“It’s one of the secrets of the world. We all have the key to one another’s locks. But until we start to talk, we don’t know it.” – Michael Silverblatt, host of KCRW’s ‘Bookworm’ radio show

“Stay open.” – Yo-Yo Ma in a lovely interview with Shad, in August 2015, on q, here On that page: At the end of the interview, Shad hit Yo-Yo Ma with this Big Question: “Having meditated on the arc of life through music in the course of making this album, what’s your biggest piece of life advice for the rest of us?” His reply? “Stay open. I think when people are afraid, we close up, we close ranks, we go into a shell, we become intolerant. Because we’re trying to be self-protective.

Having friends, trusting people, collaborating, and being empathetic can lead to ... the scaffolding to get to hope.  For me, being open and being generous is huge. It actually can lead to happiness, oddly enough. Happiness, I think, is a by-product of — I didn’t say it, Freud said it —work and love … Hey, you suddenly realize, I’m happy.”


Civil disobedience becomes a sacred duty when the state becomes lawless or corrupt. The first step to fighting injustice is to make it visible.” – Mahatma Gandhi (from article about Shiv Chopra in Vitality, Feb/March 2018)

“A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesmen and philosophers and divines. With consistency a great soul has simply nothing to do. He may as well concern himself with his shadow on the wall. Speak what you think now in hard words, and tomorrow speak what tomorrow thinks in hard words again, though it contradict every thing you said to-day. –  'Ah, so you shall be sure to be misunderstood.' –  Is it so bad, then, to be misunderstood? Pythagoras was misunderstood, and Socrates, and Jesus, and Luther, and Copernicus, and Galileo, and Newton, and every pure and wise spirit that ever took flesh. To be great is to be misunderstood.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson (more Emerson)

“Do I contradict myself? Very well, then, I contradict myself; I am large – I contain multitudes.” – Walt Whitman

“Whoever is careless with the truth in small matters can’t be trusted with important matters.” – Albert Einstein (more Einstein)

“One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It’s simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we’ve been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back.” – Carl Sagan, The Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark

The Machines

First, there was the planet.


Much much much much much later


Came the humans.

Later still, the humans made the machines


Gradually (was it gradually?)

the humans became enslaved to the machines




Humans apparently exist to serve the machines

(many humans have become machines)



The machines have enthralled & enslaved us


Unto death.
