History proves vaccines are quite safe—really?

History proves vaccines are quite safe—really?

In 1987, when I was writing my first book, AIDS INC., I decided to look into vaccines as a cause of immune-system suppression.

I had never dug below the surface of that subject before.

Of course, the authorities and experts have been forever telling people how effective and safe vaccines are. They issue their remarks with great assurance.

Here are just a few of my findings, from 1987. They paint a different historical record.

“Smallpox, like typhus, has been dying out (in England) since 1780. Vaccination in this country has largely fallen into disuse since people began to realize how its value was discredited by the great smallpox epidemic of 1871-2 (which occurred after extensive vaccination).” W. Scott Webb, A Century of Vaccination, Swan Sonnenschein, 1898.

“… Barker and Pichichero, in a prospective study of 1232 children in Denver, Colorado, found after DTP [diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis vaccine], that only 7% of those vaccinated were free from untoward reactions, which included pyrexia (53%), acute behavioral changes (82%), prolonged screaming (13%), and listlessness, anorexia and vomiting. 71% of those receiving second injections of DTP experienced two or more of the reactions monitored.” Lancet, May 28, 1983, p. 1217

“Publications by the World Health Organization show that diphtheria is steadily declining in most European countries, including those in which there has been no immunization. The decline began long before vaccination was developed. There is certainly no guarantee that vaccination will protect a child against the disease; in fact, over 30,000 cases of diphtheria have been recorded in the United Kingdom in fully immunized children.” Leon Chaitow, Vaccination and Immunization, CW Daniel Company, Ltd., p. 58.

“… the swine-flu vaccination program was one of its (CDC) greatest blunders. It all began in 1976 when CDC scientists saw that a virus involved in a flu attack outbreak at Fort Dix, N.J., was similar to the swine-flu virus that killed 500,000 Americans in 1918. Health officials immediately launched a 100-million dollar program to immunize every American. But the expected epidemic never materialized, and the vaccine led to partial paralysis in 532 people. There were 32 deaths.” U.S. News and World Report, Joseph Carey, October 14, 1985, p. 70, “How Medical Sleuths Track Killer Diseases.”

“At a press conference in Washington on 24 July, 1942, the Secretary of War reported that 28,585 cases of jaundice had been observed in the (American) Army between 1 January and 4 July after yellow fever vaccination, and of these 62 proved fatal.” Sir Graham Wilson, Hazards of Immunization, Athone Press, University of London, 1967.

“Between 10 December 1929 and 30 April 1930, 251 of 412 infants born in Lubeck received three doses of BCG vaccine by the mouth during the first ten days of life. Of these 251, 72 died of tuberculosis, most of them in two to five months and all but one before the end of the first year. In addition, 135 suffered from clinical tuberculosis but eventually recovered; and 44 became tuberculin-positive but remained well. None of the 161 unvaccinated infants born at the time was affected in this way and none of these died of tuberculosis within the following three years.” Hazards of Immunization, Wilson.

power outside the matrix

“So far it is hardly possible to gain insight into the extent of the immunization catastrophe of 1955 in the United States. It may be considered certain that the officially ascertained 200 cases (of polio) which were caused directly or indirectly by the (polio) vaccination constitute minimum figures… It can hardly be estimated how many of the 1359 (polio) cases among vaccinated persons must be regarded as failures of the vaccine and how many of them were infected by the vaccine. A careful study of the epidemiologic course of polio in the United States yields indications of grave significance. In numerous states of the U.S.A., typical early epidemics developed with the immunizations in the spring of 1955… The vaccination incidents of the year 1955 cannot be exclusively traced back to the failure of one manufacturing firm.” Dr. Herbert Ratner, Child and Family, 1980, vol. 19, no. 4, “Story of the Salk Vaccine (Part 2).”

“Suffice it to say that most of the large (polio) epidemics that have occurred in this country since the introduction of the Salk vaccine have followed the wide-scale use of the vaccine and have been characterized by an uncommon early seasonal onset. To name a few, there is the Massachusetts epidemic of 1955; the Chicago epidemic of 1956; and the Des Moines epidemic of 1959.” Dr. Herbert Ratner, Child and Family, 1980 vol. 19, no. 4.

“Administration of KMV (killed measles vaccine) apparently set in motion an aberrant immunologic response that not only failed to protect children against natural measles, but resulted in heightened susceptibility.” JAMA Aug. 22, 1980, vol. 244, p. 804, Vincent Fulginiti and Ray Helfer. The authors indicate that such falsely protected children can come down with “an often severe, atypical form of measles. Atypical measles is characterized by fever, headache… and a diverse rash (which)… may consist of a mixture of macules, papules, vesicles, and pustules… ”

“Assistant Secretary of Health Edward Brandt, Jr., MD, testifying before the U.S. Senate Committee on Labor and Human Resources, rounded… figures off to 9,000 cases of convulsions, 9,000 cases of collapse, and 17,000 cases of high-pitched screaming for a total of 35,000 acute neurological reactions occurring within forty-eight hours of a DPT shot among America’s children every year.” DPT: A Shot in the Dark, by Harris L. Coulter and Barbara Loe Fischer, Harcourt Brace Jovanovich.

Yes, a different history. Is there a school anywhere which would dare teach it?

    Great coverage as usual from one of the very few uncompromising journalists remaining in this whole planet. I found the dates fascinating of his sources fascinating, mostly from the 1980s and earlier. What’s going on with the mainstream media these days as they parrot the medical mafia’s vaccine industry as they consider “Dr. ” Paul Offet an other real quacks as their main go-to source for vaccines?

    JON !!!
    You know which school should taught the truth ???


    Parents are THE school, period.

    Parents have no directive to follow, Parents are immediatly available, Parents don’t skip the topic, Parents don’t stop teaching until the lesson is truly understood, Parents are free to tell the truth and don’t rely on orders, curicullum, AND …
    it is their DUTY, as parents.

    This is the one & only way out, and especially YOUNG PARENTS.

    We must bring a revival in humanity and it is not a philosophical, mystical idea, wish, it IS a necessity, we as humans are declining, our essence is at stake, it is a question of life and death.

  3. Jon.

    Please don’t fail us–your fans.

    Please, I beg you. You must write a book which contains all of your incredible insights concerning this vaccine plague.

    Why do I insist on you writing a book, not just posting this info. online?

    Because down the road (in the not too distant future) your type of journalism and your type of website will be banned from the web.

    Unfortunately, censorship will hit the web one day in a very big way. Just think of trying your hand at free speech on the web in China or Cuba. Good luck.
    That type of information control may come here sooner than you think. And along with it may come “disappearances.” Yes. Jon, may be “disappeared” for writing this stuff. Don’t laugh. It could happen. Or, Jon could face a fate similar to Breitbart. (Although it is claimed Breitbart died of health problems…can we really be sure?).

    Anyway, Jon, this message is urgent. You must write a book on this vaccine topic. Or maybe you can create an exceptional documentary similar to the ones put out by people like Gary Null, etc.. I am crossing my fingers you do either one of these things.

    Please keep the articles coming. Your fan base is increasing!!!!!!!!

    • Paul Fassa says:

      I do hope you’re right about Jon’s fan base increasing. Funny how there’s a movie out now called “Kill the Messenger” regarding the CIA bought journalists’ pile-on with Gary Webb that led to his officially declared suicide. We have written on his demise and how his situation and the forensics didn’t add up to the official declaration of suicide. He was on an even more dangerous trail regarding the CIA/Mossad drug trafficking and he WAS suicided! Haven’t seen it yet, but I’m sure the movie will ignore even the possibility that he was assassinated.

    It is called intentional brain damage with a bioweapon, to cripple all those whom the NWO wish to severely limit intellectually, the NWO elite thus becoming more easily able to subjugate them.

    Israel ranks as one of the countries with the lowest rates of adverse reactions to vaccinations in the entire world .Presumably theirs are made specially, not to harm the recipients.

    • Avi says:

      Israel ? … maybe !!
      but, if you knew how many weird people you encounter daily here around !
      And how many autistics children there is, I’m not sure at all the stats you mention are true !!
      As I know it, I don’t see any difference with other places at all.

      • mothman777 says:

        I read the stats on a list of official medical records of all adverse vaccination effects country by country around the world; it was published on the Jeff Rense site a year or two back.

  5. 100 million people were given the polio vaccine contaminated with monkey virus SV-40. The biggest cover-up in history. This was an on the air radio broadcast 1 month ago just before the CDC cover-up was exposed: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vuKK-i9Lb40

  6. History shows us that vaccines did NOT eradicate the diseases that plagued humanity. That is a common misconception — in actual fact, it was better sanitation and hygiene in the cities that prevented the spread of diseases. These charts, from official sources, show us that vaccines (1) were not responsible, and are not necessary, for eliminating infectious diseases, (2) are not effective, and (3) are dangerous.

      In 1807, however, the City Council showed a new willingness to consider planning for the city’s future, and, faced with opposition and conflict from property owners and various political factions, asked the state legislature for help. The council said its goal was “laying out Streets… in such a manner as to unite regularity and order with the public convenience and benefit and in particular to promote the health of the City … [by allowing] a free and abundant circulation of air” to stave off disease. (At the time, foul air was thought to be the cause of many diseases.) In March 1807, the state legislature appointed a three-member commission made up of Gouverneur Morris, the lawyer John Rutherfurd, and the state surveyor Simeon De Witt, to establish a comprehensive street plan for Manhattan.

  7. ozziethinker says:

    Good post, Jon.

    I think the message is any medication must be scrutinised intelligently BEFORE consumption. In the information age, one would hope there would be the opportunity for all to become “armchair experts” given enough passion and intelligence.

  8. Tom in Tempe says:

    Ozziethinker????? The message here is DO NOT CONSUME THEIR MEDICINE PERIOD!

    • ozziethinker says:

      I disagree, Tom.

      I believe the pharmaceutical cartel works off “salted mine” principles to carry its “dead weights” (downsizing of population masses is a “bonus”). The debate about medication here has become rather myopic, but there is no doubt that certain medications are deliberate poisons. However not ALL medication is bad. Let us be clear on that.

      To say so; is to be ignorant.

  9. has anybody been following the ev68 and paralysis that is associated with it. most among children. They are calling the mysterious virus. I say bull! it is somewhere in a vaccine just like it was in 1985. Don’t get the flu shot or any vaccine.

  10. John says:


    I have not been sick since 1993 taking my vitamins. Yes I have a strong immune system. I actually worked at one time for this company and refused the flu shot and was transferred out. Even though Novartis didn’t demand their own employees to get the shot, the company I worked for — in order to be in favor — force us to get it.

    9 out 12 employees got sick several missed weeks of work and spread the flu to their family.

    I will never get the Flu shot and NO COMPANY HOSPITAL ETC should require employees to get the shot. Should not be considered a condition of employment.

    • Avi says:

      Yessss, let’s turn the world downside up !!! & at least, let’s ask for it, in every ways by not supporting the wrong but siding for the goodness. Fe are like free electrons and can chose wich atom(s) to stay with ! That’s a Human’s job bth …Look up:)
