-- Ten reasons not to get the shot

Bush is warming up the sheeple to get ready for the shot of their lives – the smallpox vaccination. This is perhaps the most important thing on the table in our lives these days. Some people genuinely believe that this is how the government will inject the computer chip into our bodies and we can be tracked anywhere on the planet, some do not trust the government, others fear the side effects of the vaccination, still others just fear bio-warfare. What if all those that do not trust the government elect to not get the shot and fall prey to the disease as a result? Teh government could wipe out a lot of people that don't trust them, and do it legit. Whatever the reason the fact ramains - SMALLPOX is deadly and it is in the news. SO what's up why the controversy over a vaccination, isn't our government doing us a favor?

This excerpt from (CBS): Smallpox may be the worst disease ever known to man. It killed about half a billion people from 1880 to 1980, before it was eradicated. And the smallpox vaccine is deadly, too. Scientists call it the most dangerous vaccine known to man.

And biowarfare is certainly what the administration has been talking about from day 1 of the War On Terror. Note: the 15,000 Isrealis medical personnel have received their vacines. What have been the results?

     Here is a warning from a doctor, a chart of who is at risk, the chronology of the facts to the scenario, followed by the analysis of the propaganda from the presidents most recent small pox speech, and the top ten reasons why a person would consider not getting a vaccination.


Here are excerpts from Sherri Tenpenny, a physician from Cleveland, Ohio.

I am board certified in two medical specialties, including Emergency Medicine. Trust me, this is not “just another vaccine.” as with all vaccines, this vaccination will not guarantee immunity

The Vaccine:    The live vaccinia virus vaccine to prevent smallpox may be the most highly reactive vaccine that has ever been used in humans.  As with most vaccines, when complications occurred with the vaccinia virus vaccine, they were quite similar to the complications of the disease they were designed to prevent.   

Risk estimates yield a serious vaccine reaction rate of 1 in 4,000 persons. This would mean that out of 280 million Americans who receive the vaccinia virus vaccine there could be approximately 70,000 persons who would experience severe reactions.  

An even more extensive list of people at risk is the untold millions who are taking immunosuppressive drugs such as corticosteroids. Prednisone® and Medrol®, given to both adults and children, are prescribed for dozens of conditions including but not limited to: asthma; emphysema; allergies; Crohn’s disease; multiple sclerosis; herniated spinal discs; acute muscular pain syndromes; and all types rheumatoid and autoimmune diseases.

All of these patients would be at risk for serious complications from contact with a vaccinated individual.

Historically, this live virus vaccine has caused more injury and death among those who were vaccinated than any other vaccine that has ever been used. The general population has no natural immunity to this virus and even with controlled vaccination of first responders, the virus has the potential to spread throughout the community and then across the globe.

If that were to happen, the eventual end result would be the required mass vaccination of everyone in the world. Tens of thousands of casualties from the vaccine itself will result, and our already over-burdened healthcare system will be crushed trying to care for these victims.

I have personally treated many patients, both children and adults, who have suffered from catastrophic brain and immune system damage after vaccination. The potential suffering that could be caused by this highly reactive vaccine cannot be measured in either human or economic terms.


  1. Potential Neurological Reactions in the Young
  2. Encephalitis
  3. Fever, fatigue and irritability are common, especially in children, and swollen lymph glands may persist for months
  4. A raised rash (erythema) or hives (urticaria) can occur approximately 10 days after a first vaccination, which usually does not involve a fever and resolves within two to four days.
  5. Encephalomyelitis and eczema
  6. if healing of the primary vaccinal lesion caused by smallpox vaccination does not occur, there can be a slowly progressive destruction of large areas of skin (necrosis), subcutaneous tissue, viscera (internal organs) and bone. Progressive vaccinia almost always occurs in persons with a severe immune deficiency caused by cancer, radiation or chemotherapy, and AIDS or other serious immune system disorders such as lupus. Those who develop progressive vaccinia almost always die within six months




1.      Cheney warns the country about the strong possibility of bio-warfare.

2.      Ashcroft warns the country to be on guard for a bio-attack.

3.      Anthrax was introduced as a bio-attack.

4.      The Anthrax attacks alerted the collective psyche to the possibility for bio-warfare.

5.      The difference between anthrax and smallpox is that smallpox is a communicable disease. Communicable is contagious and calls forth the word quarantine.

6.      Large segments of the population could be relocated.

7.      One of the executive orders within the FEMA laws grants the president the authority to relocate people. The US has a Readiness Exercise plan to legally detain millions of American citizens called REX84 Bravo. Smallpox quarantines gives them a reason to enforce the plan - Ex Order # 11004.

8.      The FEMA laws become active when the country is in a national state of emergency.

9.      Bush declared a national state of emergency on September 12, 2001.

10.   The Bush administration insists that Saddam Hussein possesses biological weapons, including smallpox and that he is insane.

11.   If the weapons inspectors do not find any WMD weapons, it does not mean that he does not have them or that he will not use them.

12.   If the inspectors do not find that Saddam possesses any weapons then he is deemed disarmed and this means that the UN will not provide the US with a provocation to attack Iraq militarily. In this case Bush would need a trigger event to justify military action.

13.   Another bio-terror attack on Tom Daschle? Why should he be so lucky, lets say an outbreak of smallpox in Florida, they have all the luck down there and besides the media have been going there so much they practically live there.

September 18, 2001Ashcroft warns of more attacks using biological and chemical weapons. Any infectious agent or toxic chemical could in theory be engineered for deliberate use as a weapon. Experts believe that smallpox, anthrax, botulism and the plague are most likely to be used.


Bush Admininistration To Buy Smallpox Vaccine

November 28, 2001


WASHINGTON (AP) - The Bush administration has signed a contract to buy more than 150 million doses of smallpox vaccine, an official familiar with the negotiations said Wednesday. The contract will bring the nation's stockpile to nearly 290 million doses. The total cost will be less than the $509 million that the administration has asked Congress to provide. That would put each dose at less than $4.




Experts Urge Mass Vaccination for Smallpox Attack

July 7, 2002

WASHINGTON - Mass vaccinations would save thousands more lives in a smallpox attack than the current limited Ring strategy that has been recommended to the U.S. government, experts said on Sunday. Ring vaccinations would lead to 4,000 more deaths than mass vaccination would, they predicted -- even taking into account a high rate of side effects from the vaccine.

Since vaccination was scrapped in the United States in 1972, experts assume almost no one has any real immunity any more. This means smallpox, which is highly infectious, could spread like wildfire through the population.

But the current vaccine is based on old technology and is not considered very safe. It has a high rate of side-effects, some of them deadly.

The current CDC policy, endorsed by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices last month, takes this into account. It calls for quarantining anyone confirmed to have been infected in a smallpox attack.

Anyone who may have had contact with the infected patients would be tracked down and vaccinated.


U.S. to Vaccinate 500,000 Workers Against Smallpox

July 7, 2002

The federal government will soon vaccinate roughly a half-million health care and emergency workers against smallpox as a precaution against a bioterrorist attack, federal officials said.

Smallpox killed roughly one in three people who were infected. Because immunity is believed to diminish with time, most people alive today are considered vulnerable to smallpox.

Mass vaccinations are not without risk because the smallpox vaccine uses a live virus, vaccinia, a cousin of smallpox, that on occasion can cause brain damage or even kill. In the days of wide vaccination, roughly one person in a million died.

Senate Gets Brief Smallpox Scare

Mon September 30,2002

WASHINGTON (AP) - A piece of paper with the word smallpox on it prompted police to close off the Hart Senate Office Building on Monday while they tested it. Nothing was found on the note, Capitol Police Chief Terry Gainer said, and the building was reopened.

October 12,2002- the smallpox preparation continues as people are getting jumpy.

Pentagon Plans Smallpox Shots for Up to 500,000 Troops

Sat Oct 12, 2002

With the Bush administration moving closer to military action against Iraq, the Pentagon (news - web sites) is expected to begin vaccinating up to half a million troops against smallpox as soon as the vaccine is licensed in mid-November, military and administration officials said today.

The White House is expected to announce soon whether civilians are to be vaccinated. Officials said the decision had been difficult for President Bush (news - web sites), given the probability that some people would die of the vaccine's side effects.

"No official in the Pentagon or the civilian sector is going to approve immunization prior to the detection of a case of smallpox unless the vaccine is fully licensed," a senior administration official said.

The vaccine is riskier than most and can cause serious side effects and even death in some people.

People at greatest risk

According to Dr. D.A. Henderson, director of the Office of Public Health Preparedness in the Department of Health and Human Services, the people most at risk are those who:

v        have eczema;

v        have immune deficiency disorders;

v        are receiving cancer treatment;

v        are getting an organ transplant;

v        have severe complications from HIV.

People are also at risk of getting a virus similar to smallpox from someone who recently has been vaccinated.

Commentary: Chilling thoughts. The question on everyone’s mind is will the shots be mandatory? Will healthy people be at risk from being around others that have had a vaccination? Is this s special type of smallpox vaccine?  Are the people of the US and Israel being coaxed into the hoax known as bio-terrorism? Then they slip in almost as an after thought - People are also at risk of getting a virus similar to smallpox from someone who recently has been vaccinated.

I ask you, if you choose not to get a vaccine, I don’t know why anyone would not want to, but say you didn’t, would you risk being around people that were contagious with one of the most horrid, deadly diseases in history? If not, then where would you go?


December 11, 2002ABC “World News Tonight”

Bush is expected to urge smallpox vaccinations for 500,000 emergency workers most likely to be exposed to the virus in a bioterror attack, and order 500,000 military personnel to get the shots, White House officials said.

The general public will be offered the vaccine on a voluntary basis as soon as large stockpiles are licensed, a process that could take until early 2004. Bush will announce his plan Friday. Bush will announce his plan Friday.

Bush talked about the broad outlines of his plan Wednesday on ABC's "World News Tonight."

"I think it ought to be voluntary," Bush said of the civilian part of the plan. "In other words, I don't think people ought to be compelled to make the decision that they think is best for their family, and it's going to be very important for us to make sure there's ample information for people to make a wise decision."

Comment: It will be voluntary until there is an outbreak of smallpox. Then all hell can break loose. Of course Bush is promoting the voluntary choice for what is good for the family. People are less likely to get the shot if it were forced upon them. Besides he will make sure that there is ample propaganda/ I mean information to be sure we make an informed decision.

First lady Laura Bush, asked if she would want her 21-year-old twin daughters inoculated, replied:

"If the vaccine were available, which I think it will be, I would feel like that was certainly safe for them to do. ... I know there's a slight risk — that's what people will weigh when they make the decision whether or not to have their children vaccinated."

Comment: Lady Bush is called upon to coax the mothers into volunteering their families for the vaccine. It is for the family’s own good, which outweighs the slight risk. And it is all about protecting the children.

Top Ten reasons to not get vaccinations:

  1. Getting a vaccination does not guarantee immunity. ~CDC, January 28, 1994
  2. By 1987, scientific evidence indicated that the World Health Organization's 13-year global smallpox vaccination campaign may have awakened dormant HIV infection in many vaccinees. ~Times (in London) May 11, 1987.
  3. The new smallpox vaccine will be genetically engineered. Many scientists believe that genetically engineered vaccines may be responsible for the global epidemic of auto-immune disease and neurological dysfunction. ~American College of Rheumatology, annual meeting, Nov. 8-12, 1998. Merck's genetically engineered hepatitis B vaccine, Recombivax HB, is a classic example. According to Dr. Bonnie Dunbar of Baylor College of Medicine, many thousands of reported adverse reactions to the hepatitis B vaccine include: chronic fatigue, neurological disorders, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus and MS-like disease.
  4. The U.S. government apparently intends to conduct NO double blind studies on the safety and efficacy of the new smallpox vaccine.
  5. Eight printed pages of medical studies documenting the many serious side effects of smallpox vaccination can be obtained at See "smallpox vaccine adverse reactions 66-76." [Note: go to the home page above and put "smallpox vaccine adverse reaction" in the search engine.]
  6. Duh, the dumbing down of America or the day we bacame known as the droolers. Repercussions include serious brain and heart diseases, autism, abnormal chromosomal changes, diabetes, various cancers and leukemias, plus demyelination of nerve tissue years after vaccination.
  7. Routine smallpox vaccination in the United States ended in 1972. Officials are hesitant to resume the immunizations because the vaccine is the most reactive of all and has been linked to serious side effects, including death. ~ Reuters, November 29, 2001.
  8. Feeling lucky? If the entire nation were to receive a smallpox vaccine, several thousand people would likely develop encephalitis, an inflammation of the brain. ~Washington Post, Dec. 26, 2001.
  9. Bush passed the law that drug companies do not have to pay comepensation if they mess up on a vaccine. Perhaps this is why. "The computer records from the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, obtained by Gannett News Service using the Freedom of Information Act as part of a four-month study of federal immunization policy, reveal: Of 253 infant death cases awarded more than $61 million by the U.S. Court of Federal Claims in the 1990s, 224, or 86% of the deaths were attributed to vaccination with DTP, the diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis (whooping cough) shot. Of 771 total claims filed by parents from 1990 through mid-1998, 660, or 86 percent, contained assertions that DTP was the cause of death. And 43 percent were classified by medical authorities at time of death as SIDS cases."--NVIC
  10. Is there really a chip with your name on it waiting for an excuse for you to want to have it in your body?

If you do not trust the government and I don’t know why someone wouldn’t, then you can see that it would be easy to stimulate the process of giving vaccinations by having a little outbreak that you can blame on someone with Weapons of Mass Destruction. The American public is so frightened that they will accept anything at this point.

Will you be getting your small pox vaccination?

They have one with your name on it.
