Mutant Strains Of Polio Vaccine Now Cause More Paralysis Than Wild Polio

For the first time, the number of children paralyzed by mutant strains of the polio vaccine are greater than the number of children paralyzed by polio itself.

So far in 2017, there have been only six cases of “wild” polio reported anywhere in the world. By “wild,” public health officials mean the disease caused by polio virus found naturally in the environment.

By contrast, there have been 21 cases of vaccine-derived polio this year. These cases look remarkably similar to regular polio. But laboratory tests show they’re caused by remnants of the oral polio vaccine that have gotten loose in the environment, mutated and regained their ability to paralyze unvaccinated children

“It’s actually an interesting conundrum. The very tool you are using for [polio] eradication is causing the problem,” says Raul Andino, a professor of microbiology at the University of California at San Francisco.

The oral polio vaccine used throughout most of the developing world contains a form of the virus that has been weakened in the laboratory. But it’s still a live virus. (This is a different vaccine than the injectable one used in the U.S. and most developed countries. The injectable vaccine is far more expensive and does not contain live forms of the virus.)

Andino studies how viruses mutate. In a study published in March, he and his colleagues found that the laboratory-weakened virus used in the oral polio vaccine can very rapidly regain its strength if it starts spreading on its own. After a child is vaccinated with live polio virus, the virus replicates inside the child’s intestine and eventually is excreted. In places with poor sanitation, fecal matter can enter the drinking water supply and the virus is able to start spreading from person to person.

“We discovered there’s only a few [mutations] that have to happen and they happen rather quickly in the first month or two post-vaccination,” Andino says. “As the virus starts circulating in the community, it acquires further mutations that make it basically indistinguishable from the wild-type virus. It’s polio in terms of virulence and in terms of how the virus spreads.”

In June, the World Health Organization reported 15 cases of children paralyzed in Syria by vaccine-derived forms of polio. These cases come on top of two other vaccine-derived polio cases earlier this year in Syria and four in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

“In Syria, there may be more cases coming up,” says Michel Zaffran, the director of polio eradication at the World Health Organization. He says lab work is still being done on about a dozen more cases of paralysis to confirm whether they’re polio or something else.

The cases in Syria are all in the east of the country near the border with Iraq.

It has become fairly common each year for there to be one or two small outbreaks of vaccine-derived polio. These outbreaks tend to happen in conflict zones where health care systems have collapsed.

“These outbreaks are occurring only in very rare cases and only in places where children are not immunized,” says Zaffran. The regular polio vaccine protects children from vaccine-derived strains of the virus just as it protects them from regular polio. Vaccine-derived outbreaks, he says, “occur where there are large pockets of unimmunized children, pockets sufficiently large to allow for the circulation of the virus.”

WHO is staging a massive response to the Syrian outbreak. WHO plans to work with local health officials and aid groups to vaccinate a quarter of a million children in early July. The goal is to reach every child younger than 5 in the area with two doses of two different types of polio vaccine, spaced one to two weeks apart. This would be a logistical challenge in most parts of the world, never mind in war-torn Syria.

“The access in these areas is a bit limited because of the presence of ISIS,” Zaffran says in what seems like an understatement. Eastern Syria is home right now to Syrians who’ve fled from Raqqa (the ISIS capital in Syria), other parts of the country and even Iraq. “Also there’s a risk that the fighting might actually move to this area.”

Zaffran is confident that the rogue vaccine-derived virus circulating in eastern Syria right now can be wiped out with a massive blast of more vaccine.

“We knew that we were going to have such outbreaks. We’ve had them in the past. We continue to have them now. We know how to find them, and we know how to interrupt them. We have the tools to do that,” Zaffran says. “So it’s hiccup … a very regrettable hiccup for the poor children that have been paralyzed, of course. But with regards to the whole initiative, you know it’s not something that is unexpected.”

WHO is attempting to phase out the use of live oral polio vaccine to eliminate the risk that the active virus in the vaccine could mutate into a form that can harm unvaccinated children.

But for now, the live vaccine continues to be the workhorse of the global polio eradication campaign for a couple of reasons. First it’s cheap, costing only about 10 cents a dose versus $3 a dose for the injectable, killed vaccine. Second, it can be given as drops into a child’s mouth, which makes it far easier to administer than the inactivated or “killed” vaccine, which has to be injected. Third, there simply isn’t enough killed vaccine on the market to vaccinate every child on the planet, and vaccine manufacturers don’t have the capacity to produce the quantities that would be needed if such a switch happened immediately.

And finally, the live vaccine stops transmission of the polio virus entirely in a community if sufficient numbers of people are vaccinated. The killed vaccine doesn’t fully block the virus from spreading because a person who is immunized can still carry and spread the polio virus. And this is an important difference between these two types of vaccines when the goal is to exterminate the polio virus.

“The fact is this [the live oral polio vaccine] is the only tool that we have that can eradicate the disease,” says Zaffran.

That eradication effort has been incredibly successful. In 1988, when the campaign began, there were 350,000 cases of polio around the world each year compared with the six so far this year.

Zaffran credits the oral polio vaccine with getting the world incredibly close to wiping out a terrible disease.

“Four regions of the world have totally eradicated the disease with the use of the oral polio vaccine,” he notes. “Of course we need to recognize that there have been a few cases of children paralyzed because of the vaccine virus, which is regrettable. But, you know, from a public health perspective, the benefits far outweigh the risk.”

George Soros Transfered $18 Billion to Open Society Foundations in 2017

Left-wing billionaire George Soros has transferred $18 billion to his Open Society Foundations, the primary vehicle for his global political activism and philanthropy.

The transfer, according to the Wall Street Journal, accounts for most of Soros’s foundation, which he accrued through a controversial career as an investor.

The Journal notes: “Open Society has vaulted to the top ranks of philanthropic organizations, appearing to become the second largest in the U.S. by assets after the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, based on 2014 figures from the National Philanthropic Trust.”

Soros, who is 88, transferred the funds as part of a plan to make sure his activism continues after he retires or passes away. $18 billion is roughly three times the amount of money spent by all parties, in all races, during the 2016 election cycle, according to OpenSecrets.

Counties, Names, and Government by Contract


By Anna Von Reitz

All counties have to be “surveyed” — located and geographically “defined”— before there is any “thing” present that can be labeled and named.  Once this process is complete and a name has been attached to that parcel, the County is “corporate” but not “incorporated”. 

When you, a man, come forth from your Mother and are a separate living being, you are defined by your body and located in space in much the same way.  Upon being named, “John” or “Bruce” or “Charles”— you, too, are “corporate”, but “unincorporated”. 

So all counties are “corporate” entities, but not all counties in the country are “incorporated” — meaning that some of them didn’t take the bait of Federal Block Grants in order to maintain their independence.  We are compiling a list of those counties that (1) never bit the hook, and (2) those counties that have liquidated federal franchise counties and chosen to operate in unincorporated status, and (3) those counties that have merely been “presumed to be” incorporated, because they received Federal Block Grants or because they changed their doing-business-as names to conform with Federal Nomenclature.

We are finding that MOST counties fit in this later group and did not specifically or publicly adopt being incorporated.  Like the rest of us, they were apparently told “you have to do this” by Federal Agents, so they changed the Style or Ordering of their names and unwittingly created new corporate Persons that were assumed to be operating as Federal Franchises. 

For example, you might start out as “Pearson County” and over the years the name on the shingle at the Courthouse would change to
“County of Pearson”  or “PEARSON COUNTY” and so on.  Just like the switch from “John Michael Doe” to “JOHN MICHAEL DOE” in the absence of actual public meetings and discussions and votes taken there can be no reliable evidence that such counties ever knowingly agreed to incorporated as franchises of the Federal Government.

There are at least 3100 counties in America and people living in all of them.  Those people need to do some research into their own county history to find out the actual status of their county government.  Most likely, State of State franchises simply “moved in” after the Civil War and have operated like cuckoo birds in a robin’s nest ever since.

The correct way to name the land and soil jurisdiction county for our purposes is always in Upper and Lower Case and in the form “Name County” — as in “Bear County” or “Pearson County” or “Black River County” or “Winnebago County” or “Ipshago County” and so on. 

Please Note: When we use their notaries to do our work in public, we call them “Public Notaries” on the paperwork to nail down the capacity in which they are functioning and simply name the State — for example, Colorado — not the “State of Colorado” and not the “STATE OF COLORADO” and not “COLORADO”, either, and the county is named as above, for example, “Montrose County”.

We are also finding quite a number of “Diversified Counties” especially in large metro areas.  In these cases you will find a land and soil county overlain with layers of corporate entities from various jurisdictions eating out the population, each one charging for “services” and imposing regulations and codes and rules that are creating streams of revenue for these organizations without however having any actual and knowing consent from the local people.

In other words, these organizations are operating as commercial corporations under color of law.  They are booting up like any other commercial corporation with Articles of Incorporation and Officers and Boards of Directors and operating under deceptive names designed to make people assume that they are part of the actual government — when they aren’t.  Think of it as the local version of the “IRS” or “DOT”.

The IRS exists as a privately owned and operated bill collector for the “Internal Revenue Service” which is a foreign “Bureau” perched inside of the “US Department of the Treasury” which is run by the IMF.  This is why the Secretary of the Treasury, Steven T. Mnuchin, is an Interpol Agent and not functioning as an American nor even as a US Citizen.

Anyway…..

These organizations like the “County of Pearson” typically stake out a turf for themselves and amass a list of subscribers, that is, people or even properties, that receive services from them.  They come in, they fill pot holes, they cut brush along utility corridors, or whatever function they have chosen for themselves, and then they send their purported subscribers a billing statement for these services whether the subscriber asked for these services or not. 

Often these groups act in concert with the actual County and give the County a “cut” of the action.  They may even send their billings out from the County offices, making it appear legitimate, or they may bill the County as Subcontractors and the County then arbitrarily taxes you, and again, it all looks legitimate and isn’t.

These Undisclosed Subcontractors pad their billings to be able to give kickbacks to the less savory members of County Government and around and around it goes. In Oklahoma it got so bad that the County Clerks in the 1980’s kept “Kickback Books”…. literally.  They kept ledgers to keep the crooks honest.

Think of the Magazine Subscription Scams that plagued everyone back in the 1980’s.  First, they gave you a “free subscription” out of the blue. It just comes to your mailbox from some “Subscription Service”.  As part of that first “free” magazine they sent you a “subscription card” to receive up to six more magazines at “unbelievable prices”, and, if you didn’t bother to reply, they promise to send you complimentary copies of six more magazines to try!  After that, of course, they just kept sending magazines and if you were too busy to track down the fine print and cancel all these subscriptions, you were on the hook to pay for them all.  This went on for ten years before the Postal authorities finally cracked down on it.

Its the same thing with all the services that the County of Pearson offers you.  If you don’t contact them and say, “Whoa!  Who are you and what are you offering and how much is it going to cost me?”  — you are “presumed” to have subscribed to their service and are on the hook for paying for the services you received.   A wise person receiving a bill from something that looks like the County but not exactly, should question that billing, and should want to know exactly what they supposedly signed up to receive.  Who signed them up?  When? How? For what services?  — And they should object to paying for anything they didn’t order and ride herd on the cost of any services they agree to receive from the “County of Pearson”.

This is all “government by private contract” and doesn’t have a thing to do with the actual County, which rarely if ever does much beyond deciding which of these franchise operations are going to get the contracts next year.

I hope you continue to dig for any evidence that your county was ever incorporated or “presumed” to be incorporated.  If you can’t find any evidence of incorporation, you may be living in one of those counties that never did incorporate.  What a blessing for you and everyone else concerned, if that turns out to be true.  It’s one more thread that undermines claims that these foreign interlopers ever achieved “exclusive legislative jurisdiction”. Please let us know so we have a confirmed status for your county.

Iran Just Delivered 1M Barrels of Oil to Fuel-Starved Syria by ‘Ghosting’

By Tyler Durden | 10 May 2019

ZERO HEDGE — At a moment the Persian Gulf is heating up given the highest tensions and exchange of threats in years between the US and Iran, Tehran is running the high risk gambit of restarting its crude transfers to Syria.

A new CNBC report finds, “Tanker-tracking firms believe Iran is once again shipping crude oil to Syria, resuming the illicit trade as tensions with Washington rise and the Islamic Republic faces increasing international isolation.” Specifically a one million barrel delivery was reportedly made through the Syrian port of Baniyas in early May, the first since the end of 2018, according to TankerTrackers.com and ClipperData.

Washington has in recent months ramped up targeted sanctions against Syrian oil imports, causing the worse fuel crisis in Syria’s modern history, resulting in a “lifeless” and “decimated economy” with cars lined up for miles, sometimes waiting for days for a simple gas fill-up, as one Bloomberg on the ground report recently described[…]

UPDATED: Toxic Fluorinated Compounds Found in 12 RI Drinking Water Sites — 50,000+ Impacted

9 May 2019

GOLOCALPROV — One major environmental research group is warning that 12 Rhode Island drinking water sites impacting more than 50,000 Rhode Islanders have detected contamination of toxic PFAS — toxic fluorinated compounds.

The Rhode Island Department of Health, however, is challenging the accuracy of the methodology.

The known extent of contamination of American communities with PFAS “continues to grow at an alarming rate, with no end in sight,” said Environmental Working Group (EWG) in their release of the data this week.

As of March 2019, at least 610 locations in 43 states are known to be contaminated, including drinking water systems serving an estimated 19 million people, according to EWG. […]
