A reader wished to submit the following column regarding Sen. Tarte’s controversial vaccination bill (SB346) as a guest post and as an open letter to North Carolina parents.
Phoolish Pharma Phunded Phaux Health Crisis Leads to Phascism
“Fascism is a religious conception….Whoever has seen in the religious politics of the Fascist regime nothing but mere opportunism has not understood that Fascism besides being a system of government is also, and above all, a system of thought.”
— former Italian dictator Benito Mussolini, (1932)
“There are six things that the Lord hates, seven that are an abomination to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil, a false witness who breathes out lies, and one who sows discord among brothers.”
— The Bible, Proverbs 6:1
Dear NC Parents:
In March three NC state senators introduced Senate Bill 346 (SB 346) to significantly increase the number of vaccinations mandated by the state for school children and to remove the parental religious exemption from state immunization law.
Current state law requires children to get 23 doses of 8 vaccines before entering school. It appears that SB 346’s proposed adoption of the CDC immunization schedule increases this to 49 doses of 14 vaccines during the first six years, and 66 doses of 15 vaccines by age 18.
Senator Tarte introduced their bill by comparing parents who do not vaccinate either according to the CDC schedule, or those who exercise the state’s current religious exemption, to the murderous Taliban.
Tarte also stated “There’s never been a case that’s failed to uphold the ability to mandatorily vaccinate kids, especially when it endangers the public health.”
So, is there a legitimate crisis that justifies a change to state law that violates the NC Constitution?
In fact, a very brief look at readily available facts demonstrates hypocrisy of these senators’ bill — SB 346 — and their ignorance of the state’s Constitution and laws.
SB 346 Authors’ Hypocrisy and Ignoring the Facts
First, this proposal to remove parental religious exemptions from immunizations is the exact opposite position taken by the NC Senate when it voted on Feb 25, 2015 to uphold the right of elected magistrates to refuse to marry same sex couples. So according to the NC Senate majority, elected magistrates have religious freedom, but parents do not. Put another way, religious freedoms are for sale by the NC Senate as long as large corporations (like Pharmas) are willing to pay for their elimination. (Perhaps understanding the hypocrisy involved in his SB 346 vaccine bill, Sen Tarte was the only Republican to vote against the SB 2 magistrate bill.)
Second, the authors have admitted to intentionally vague language in the bill about which K-12 school children are covered, leaving open the question of whether homeschooled children would be required to comply with the new law. While the authors have suggested that it was not their intent to cover homeschooled children, in private they have told fellow senators the opposite. When confronted on camera with this apparent lie, Sen. Jeff Tarte refused to answer.
However, easily available facts disprove any increased risk of disease caused by failure to follow the CDC’s vaccination recommendations or NC’s existing religious exemption:
NC already has a very high immunization compliance rate compared to other states. According the CDC, in 2014, for entering Kindergarten students rate for MMR vaccine was 98.8%, the rate for DTaP vaccine was 98.7%, and the rate for varicella vaccine was 99.7%.
The NC bill is part of a nationwide Pharma-backed push to mandate more vaccines and to eliminate religious exemptions after a measles outbreak started at Disneyland (California) in December 2014. What the mainstream media hysteria does not report, because it relies on Pharma advertising money, is that CDC data indicates that only 25% of the 125 Disneyland measles cases occurred in vaccine refusers.
The bill ignores that the last measles death (1) in the United States was in 2003. CDC will not put this statistic on its website, but CDC has emailed it to a physician in Maine. The CDC stated in 2012 that since 1995, an average of 1 measles-related death per year has been reported.
The bill ignores that NC DHHS reports that the number of measles cases in NC is down over the last three years: zero (0) cases in 2015, one (1) case in 2014, and 22 cases in 2013 (that originated in India). None of these cases resulted in death.
The bill ignores that the last Whooping cough (pertussis) death in NC reported by DHHS was in 2013, in an infant too young to receive DTaP vaccine according to the CDC schedule.
The bill mandates the Hepatitis B vaccine for newborn babies the day they are born even though it is a disease caused only by unprotected sex, prostitution, and intravenous drug use. In a medical journal article, Hepatitis B vaccine has been positively linked to autism.
The bill mandates the influenza (flu) vaccine even though CDC has admitted that it was only 18% effective in 2014-2015. The BMJ (formerly British Medical Journal) has reported that flu vaccination campaigns are simply public relations by public health agencies like CDC and profit-motivated pharmaceutical companies.
The bill mandates influenza (flu) vaccine even though a 50% reduction of flu vaccine supply in 2004-2005 (due to manufacturer violations of FDA regulations) resulted in a lower incidence of influenza than normal.
The bill mandates following the CDC’s vaccine schedule for MMR vaccines despite CDC refusing to tell members of Congress why it will not study adverse health outcomes (including autism) in vaccinated vs. unvaccinated children. Perhaps this is because the CDC has known since 2005 that unvaccinated Amish children, other than those vaccinated before adoption, do not get autism. CDC has refused to conduct this research since 2006 when a bill mandating that the agency conduct such a study was introduced in Congress.
The bill mandates following the CDC’s vaccination schedule for MMR vaccine despite a CDC scientist, Dr. William Thompson, admitting that since 2004 he and his colleagues had covered up data showing an increased risk of autism in black male children. Dr. William Thompson has been subsequently granted federal whistleblower protection in 2015, a fact that the Pharma-dependent mainstream media has ignored.
The bill ignores the fact that the federal government’s HHS vaccine injury court has awarded almost $3 billion to about 4,000 families due to deaths and serious, crippling diseases caused by vaccines. This is because since 1986 Congress has prohibited families of vaccinated-injured/killed children from suing any vaccine manufacturer.
The bill relies on CDC to make decisions for the state and for parents despite the agency’s long history of gross incompetence and willingness to compromise public health in favor of Pharma profits. Instances of CDC incompetence include the agency’s responses to 1976 Swine Flu non-epidemic, the 2006 Avian (Bird) Flu non-epidemic, the 2009 Swine Flu, and the 2014 Ebola outbreak in West Africa. CDC has a long history of reckless handling of pathogens, including anthrax, avian flu and Ebola, resulting in its employees and other citizens being exposed to these agents.
The bill relies on the ethically compromised CDC Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) despite the US Congress’ House Committee on Government Reform having reported in 2000 six broad areas of conflict or interest between half the committee members and the vaccine manufacturers. The 15 current sitting ACIP members are “advised” by 8 ex-officio and 30 non-voting members, some of whom have long histories of conflict of interest. The result is ACIP decisions that serve only Pharma interests and the government bureaucrats who are supposed to regulate them.
The Phoolish Senators’ Legal Catch-22
Apparently, the pharmaceutical company lobbyists who drafted SB 346 didn’t research NC state law or its Constitution very well. Or the three authors of the bill are just not very smart or simply don’t care about the law or the state Constitution. Either way, SB 346 conflicts with both the NC Constitution and other state law.
Lets examine how:
The NC Constitution, Sec 13, Religious liberty states:
“All persons have a natural and inalienable right to worship Almighty God according to the dictates of their own consciences, and no human authority shall, in any case whatever, control or interfere with the rights of conscience.” (emphasis added)
When confronted on camera with the inherent conflict between his bill, which explicitly controls and interferes with the rights of conscience, and the state Constitution, Sen. Tarte refused to answer constituent questions. In fact, this so-called public servant just walked out of his state Senate office when asked some simple polite questions.
Sen. Tarte has told the Raleigh News & Observer that “the God I know doesn’t want children to die unnecessarily.” So, Senator Tarte and his two co-authors believe that their God should be the arbiter of religious beliefs — and medical science — in North Carolina, and not citizens’ “dictates of their own conscience” as stated in the state Constitution. Further, Sen Tarte’s God apparently cares only about children harmed by disease, but not about the 15,000 vaccine-related deaths and injuries families have taken to the federal vaccine court.
Somehow I do not recall the Bible saying: “God loves all his children, except those that threaten Pharma profits.” Perhaps Sen. Tarte can point that passage out to the people of North Carolina.
The NC Constitution, Section 15, “Education” states:
“The people have a right to the privilege of education, and it is the duty of the State to guard and maintain that right.”
and NC General Statute § 115C-378, “Children required to attend”, reads:
“(a) Every parent, guardian or custodian in this State having charge or control of a child between the ages of seven and 16 years shall cause the child to attend school continuously.”
Therefore, according to the NC constitution and state law: citizens have a “right” to a free education, the state must “guard and maintain that right”, and parents must “cause” their child “to attend school continuously.”
Sen Tarte’s bill, SB 346, asserts:
“It is not the intent of the General Assembly to require any child in this State to be immunized, as it is the parent, guardian, or custodian of a child who makes the final determination as to whether or not to immunize the child. However, in order to attend school in this State (K-12), each student shall be immunized in accordance with this section. “
So, to summarize the Catch-22 situation in which Sen. Tarte and his co-authors intend to trap North Carolina parents:
SB 346 authors assert that they do not “intend” to require any child to be immunized against their parents or guardians religious beliefs.
But according to Sen. Tarte children must be vaccinated exactly according to the CDC schedule or they cannot attend school (any school due to the intentionally ambiguous language of the bill).
And if parents do not comply with the requirements of SB 346, their children will be denied the privilege of a free education guaranteed under the state Constitution — a “right” that Sen. Tarte and his co-authors are required to “guard and maintain” as elected officials of the NC government.
And what if parents do not immunize their children according to the CDC schedule, and their children are consequently refused the “right” to attend school?
Then the parents can be fined or jailed for failing to comply with state school attendance law (NCGS § 115C-378).
In short, parents and guardian must comply with Sen. Tarte’s de facto mandatory immunization law or face prosecution and imprisonment (or fines) for not complying with school attendance regulations — even if the they desire to have their unvaccinated or partially vaccinated child attend school.
Having read Sen. Tarte’s public statements on SB 346, and watched him in three videos linked in this post, it is clear Sen. Tarte believes he is above the law and unaccountable to the people of North Carolina.
Worse, he invokes God – his selective Pharma-loving personal interpretation of God – to deprive North Carolina citizens of their Constitutional religious rights in the absence of any compelling public health emergency.
Therefore, SB 346 is a threat to the liberty of every North Carolina citizen, because if the NC General Assembly willfully ignores the state’s Constitution — and attempts to play God by voiding the explicit rights therein — this will only be the first of many rights being trampled by ethically corrupt politicians doing the bidding of their corporate campaign donors.
