Happy African woman and her child, yet sick minds want to kill them

Happy African woman and her child, yet sick minds want to kill them

Published science paper identifies infertility chemical secretly spiked into vaccines for African women

Call it the Age of Transparency, if you wish, but the dark secrets behind almost every once-trusted institution are now being exposed for all to see.

Public trust in already shattered in the treasonous FBI, the corrupt CDC, the “fake news” mainstream media and the farce of conventional medicine. On the heels of all that, we now learn that a published science paper has identified and named the genocidal infertility chemical that was secretly added to World Health Organization-approved vaccines administered solely to black women in Africa.

That paper, published in the open access journal Scientific Research, is entitled “HCG Found in WHO Tetanus Vaccine in Kenya Raises Concern in the Developing World.” (Source link) Authored by John W. Oller, Christopher A. Shaw, Lucija Tomljenovic, Stephen K. Karanja, Wahome Ngare, Felicia M. Clement and Jamie Ryan Pillette, the study not only confirms that a depopulation chemical was deliberately spiked into vaccines administered to African women in Kenya, it also names the infertility chemical that was used

(Below, I explain how the chemical “weaponizes the wombs” of black women, turning the bodies of mothers into biological assault weapons against their own unborn children…)

Here’s the full abstract of the study, word for word (bolding emphasis added):

In 1993, WHO announced a “birth-control vaccine” for “family planning”. Published research shows that by 1976 WHO researchers had conjugated tetanus toxoid (TT) with human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) producing a “birth-control” vaccine.

Conjugating TT with hCG causes pregnancy hormones to be attacked by the immune system. Expected results are abortions in females already pregnant and/or infertility in recipients not yet impregnated. Repeated inoculations prolong infertility. Currently WHO researchers are working on more potent anti-fertility vaccines using recombinant DNA.

WHO publications show a long-range purpose to reduce population growth in unstable “less developed countries”. By November 1993 Catholic publications appeared saying an abortifacient vaccine was being used as tetanus prophylactic.

 In November 2014, the Catholic Church asserted that such a program was underway in Kenya. Three independent Nairobi accredited biochemistry laboratories tested samples from vials of the WHO tetanus vaccine being used in March 2014 and found hCG where none should be present.

In October 2014, 6 additional vials were obtained by Catholic doctors and were tested in 6 accredited laboratories. Again, hCG was found in half the samples. Subsequently, Nairobi’s AgriQ Quest laboratory, in two sets of analyses, again found hCG in the same vaccine vials that tested positive earlier but found no hCG in 52 samples alleged by the WHO to be vials of the vaccine used in the Kenya campaign 40 with the same identifying batch numbers as the vials that tested positive for hCG.

Given that hCG was found in at least half the WHO vaccine samples known by the doctors involved in administering the vaccines to have been used in Kenya, our opinion is that the Kenya “anti-tetanus” campaign was reasonably called into question by the Kenya Catholic Doctors Association as a front for population growth reduction.

Vaccines are “a front for population growth reduction”

Let there be no mistaking the conclusion reached by the authors of this published science paper. They have unveiled all the following shocking truths that the mainstream media absolutely refuses to publish:

1) Tetanus vaccines are used as a “medical front” for depopulation vaccines.
2) The program is administered in conjunction with “public health” initiatives engineered by the World Health Organization.
3) The goal of this program is the depopulation of blacks in Africa.
4) The hCG infertility chemical used in this genocidal “vaccine violence” against black women causes a woman’s body to turn against its own unborn child, attacking it as a foreign invader, causing a spontaneous abortion.

These shocking but true revelations confirm what Natural News has been accurately reporting for years: Namely, that vaccines have been weaponized against humanity and are deliberately laced with depopulation chemicals before being injected into the young women of ethnic groups which are targeted for extermination

It sounds like a James Bond villain’s secret plot for world domination, but it’s actually real. And it’s happening right now, all across the planet, under the “authority” of the so-called World Health Organization.

MUST SEE: The Science Agenda to Exterminate Blacks
Watch my jaw-dropping one-hour science and medicine presentation that provides exhaustive evidence of this covert extermination program carried out in the name of vaccines. My lecture is called The Science Agenda to Exterminate Blacks. (Article continues below…)

Statement from the Kenya Conference of Catholic Bishops

The discovery of this genocidal, depopulation chemical in routine vaccines raised the alarm among Kenya’s Catholic Bishops, who are themselves, pro-vaccine advocates. In an astonishing statement of truth posted at the Catholic Bishops website, they state the following:

Dear Kenyans, due to the direction the debate on the ongoing Tetanus Vaccine campaign in Kenya is taking, We, the Catholic Bishops, in fulfilling our prophetic role,  wish to restate our position as follows:

The Catholic Church is NOT opposed to regular vaccines administered in Kenya, both in our own Church health facilities and in public health institutions.However, during the second phase of the Tetanus vaccination campaign in March 2014, that is sponsored by WHO/UNICEF,  the Catholic Church questioned the secrecy of the exercise. 

We raised questions on whether the tetanus vaccine was linked to a population control program that has been reported in some countries, where a similar vaccine was laced with Beta- HCG hormone which causes infertility and multiple miscarriages in women.

On March 26, 2014, and October 13, 2014, we met the Cabinet Secretary in-charge of health and the Director of Medical Services among others and raised our concerns about the Vaccine and agreed to jointly test the vaccine. However, the ministry did not cooperate and the joint tests were not done

The Catholic Church struggled and acquired several vials of the vaccine, which we sent to Four unrelated Government and private laboratories in Kenya and abroad.

We want to announce here, that all the tests showed that the vaccine used in Kenya in March and October 2014  was indeed laced with the Beta- HCG hormone

On 13th of October 2014, the Catholic Church gave copies of the results to the cabinet secretary and the Director of Medical Services. The same was emailed to the Director of Medical Services on October 17, 2014.

Based on the above grounds, We, the Catholic Bishops in Kenya, wish to State the following

That we are shocked at the level of dishonesty and casual manner in which such a serious issue is being handled by the Government.

That a report presented to the Parliamentary Committee on Health  November 4, 2014, by the Ministry of Health, claiming that the Government had tested the Vaccine and found it clean of  Beta- HCG hormone, is false and a deliberate attempt to distort the truth and mislead 42 million Kenyans.

That we are dismayed by attempts to intimidate and blackmail medical professionals who have corroborated information about the vaccine, with threats of disciplinary action. We commend and support all professionals who have stood by the truth.

That we shall not waver in calling upon all Kenyans to avoid the tetanus vaccination campaign laced with Beta-HCG, because we are convinced that it is indeed a disguised population control programme.

Note carefully that this letter references “attempts to intimidate and blackmail medical professionals.” Sound familiar? That’s the vaccine deep state hard at work, doing in Africa exactly what it does in the United States and everywhere else: 

Threatening, intimidating, blackmailing, slandering or defaming anyone who dares go public with the truth about toxic vaccines. Read vaccine news for daily updates on the evil, destructive vaccine industry and its ongoing crimes against humanity.)

Yes, there is a covert, genocidal depopulation program being waged by the World Health Organization, and it uses VACCINES as its front

As both the science paper (above) and the Kenya Conference of Catholic Bishops have reluctantly concluded, there is indeed a covert human depopulation program underway right now, and that program uses “vaccines” as a front for the attempted extermination of targeted groups via medically-induced spontaneous abortions and chemically-induced infertility. 

As with many medical experiments, the program is first being deployed and tested in Africa.

(This has also been done by Pfizer, whose executives were named in arrest warrants for the death of a Nigerian child from vaccine medical experiments.) Once the chemical assault is perfected in Africa, it is then deployed elsewhere. 

(Note that Ebola was first allowed to spread in Africa, then was deliberately brought to the United States where it was carelessly allowed to spread in a Texas hospital… it’s the same pattern for many weaponized infectious agents.)

Most importantly, this genocidal depopulation program turns a woman’s body against her own unborn child, effectively weaponizing the womb against humanity. Effectively, the vaccine transforms mothers into murderers of their own unborn babies. 

This is, of course, called “public health” medicine, perhaps in the same way that mass abortions are called “women’s health” by the abortion industry.

To state that this program is a violation of medical ethics and informed consent doesn’t even begin to describe the depth of the crimes against humanity being carried out today through vaccines and W.H.O. public health initiatives. 

It proves, beyond any doubt, the existence of a shadowing, vaccine-pushing organization I have dubbed the “vaccine deep state” which seeks to deploy vaccines as covert chemical weapons against humanity.

This isn’t a conspiracy theory. It’s not the fantasy of some James Bond villain, either. It’s happening right now, right under our noses, and nearly every single vaccine-pushing scientist, doctor, and journalist are knowingly or unknowingly taking part in a chemical assault on humanity in the name of “immunizations.”

Bill Gates explains how vaccines could reduce world population

Humanity is being assaulted in a chemical warfare attack right this very minute. The war, however, is silent, insidious and even described as a form of “medicine” to help improve public health. 

Yet at the very top of the globalist pyramid, the most powerful pro-vaccine voices like Bill Gates have long known exactly what was going down. That’s why Bill Gates, with great precision, explained, “The world today has 6.8 billion people… that’s headed up to about 9 billion. 

Now  if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we could lower that by perhaps 10 or 15 percent.”

As I correctly concluded in a Natural News article published eight years ago:

They might reduce fertility and therefore dramatically lower birth rates around the world, thereby reducing the world population over successive generations. This “soft kill” method might seem more acceptable to scientists who want to see the world population fall but don’t quite have the stomach to outright kill people with conventional medicine. There is already evidence that vaccines may promote miscarriages…

Keep in mind that since then, we’ve also seen scientific proof from a CDC-funded vaccine study that found vaccines cause spontaneous abortions, killing the unborn children. The head of the CDC has also recently been forced to resign over a deep corruption scandal that just got exposed. 

It turns out the director of the CDC was purchasing stock shares in Merck, one of the world’s largest vaccine manufacturers so that she could personally profit from the sales of vaccines that are being pushed by the CDC itself (using mass media fear mongering over the flu season, of course).

The weaponization of vaccines into covert sterility drugs is just the beginning… what’s really happening is a run-up to a deliberate, deadly pandemic that significantly decreases human population on planet Earth

By now, you’ve probably come to realize that Natural News is consistently years ahead of the curve on calling out the shocking truths regarding medicine, vaccines, shadow government and fraudulent science. 

You’ll also note that everything in this article has been exhaustively cited and linked, including the Catholic Bishops’ statements, the science paper, the CDC / Merck scandal and the medical history involving Nazi Germany and IG Farben. 

Everything you are reading here is rooted in factual truth. That’s why I urge you to take the following seriously.

In the 2010 article mentioned above, I described how vaccines could be used to promote a pandemic wipeout of human populations via medically-induced vulnerability to infections (caused by vaccines):

They might increase the death rate from a future pandemic. Theoretically, widespread vaccination efforts could be followed by a deliberate release of a highly virulent flu strain with a high fatality rate. This “bioweapon” approach could kill millions of people whose immune systems have been weakened by previous vaccine injections.

In support of this, we now have confirmatory evidence that flu vaccines make people more vulnerable to influenza in subsequent years. From the article BOMBSHELL: Flu shots scientifically proven to weaken immune response in subsequent years:

A medical study conducted at the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center found that women who received flu vaccines had a weakened immune system response in subsequent years.

Lisa Christian, PhD, the lead researcher on the study, concluded, “Growing evidence shows that those who received a flu shot in the prior year have lower antibody responses in the current year.”

The study proves yet again that the official narrative of the flu shot industry — and its complicit corporate-run media — is false and deliberately deceptive. Far from offering bulletproof protection, flu shots actually make people more vulnerable to influenza infections, which of course contributes to more people catching the flu and then falsely thinking they need more flu shots for “more protection.”

Has the depopulation “weaponized” flu already been unleashed?

Look around you right now. What are you seeing in the news about flu deaths? If you’re paying attention, you’re probably hearing that flu deaths this year are the worse they’ve ever been in recent memory. 

The flu season is “the worst in nearly a decade,” touts a USA Today article that dutifully pushes more vaccines as the answer. A day later, the propaganda rag can’t help but ask “Flu season: Why are [healthy] people dying from it?”

USA Today, you see, is totally perplexed about why healthy people are dying from influenza. The scientifically illiterate newspaper also can’t figure out why the more people get vaccinated, the more likely they are to die from the flu. (See my related article Vaccine industry in PANIC MODE as *vaccinated* children keep dying from the flu…)

What they fail to report, of course, is that it’s actually vaccinated people who are doing the most deadly. The vaccines, you see, are deliberately weaponized to turn a person’s own body against her in exactly the same way the hCG chemical causes an African woman’s body to be “weaponized” against its own child.

 The use of vaccines as a depopulation vector is not a loony conspiracy theory; it is an established, published scientific fact that has been verified by multiple chemical analysis laboratories. If you believe in science, you must follow the real evidence, even if it leads you to conclusions that seem offensive to your incomplete worldview.

 In truth, there are active depopulation efforts underway right now, and vaccines are the perfect vector to inject people with a cocktail of RNA fragments and chemical compounds that might achieve infertility, spontaneous abortions, early death or any number of goals that are targeted by depopulation globalists such as Bill Gates. (Read for more coverage.)

Note that nobody seems to ask what ingredients are added to vaccines, and I have yet to meet even one conventional medical doctor who has any idea what vaccines actually contain, other than weakened viral fragments. (The CDC openly states that vaccines contain a variety of neurotoxic chemicals such as MSG, formaldehyde, mercury, antibiotics and so on.)

The Nazi link: Zyklon-B, Bayer, IG Farben, war crimes and genocide

A few years ago, I once joked that flu vaccines were a “nationwide IQ test” to weed out the stupid people in the human gene pool. Although this was uttered as a crude joke, it turns out to be prophetic. People who agree to be vaccinated are, quite literally, subjecting themselves to a chemical assault from any number of covert chemicals which are spiked into vaccines for nefarious purposes.

In essence, the vaccine industry is attempting to do exactly what the Nazis did to the Jews, except they’re doing it with vaccine chemicals instead of Zyklon-B. It’s no coincidence, by the way, that the same chemical conglomerate which once developed and manufactured Zyklon B-is now a global manufacturer of vaccines. The company is known as Bayer, and as we reported in this Natural News article exposing the Nazi history of the vaccine industry, it was deeply engaged in crimes against humanity:

After World War Two, scores of suspected Nazi war criminals were prosecuted by the Allies in the Palace of Justice in the city of Nuremberg, the birth-place of the Nazi Party. Among the industrial prisoners charged with crimes against humanity were 24 managers of IG Farben, an organization without whom, according to U.S. Chief Prosecutor Telford Taylor, the Second World War would not have been possible.

In 1925, IG Farben, Interessengemeinschaft Farben, (Association of Common Interests), became a powerful cartel of German chemical and pharmaceutical companies such as Bayer (the aspirin manufacturer), BASF, AGFA, and Hoechst (now known as Aventis.) By 1933, the IG Farben group had become the largest chemical and pharmaceutical corporation in the world. And even today, although it doesn’t use the name IG Farben, its companies remain the most powerful transnationals on the planet in pharmaceuticals, chemicals, and agro-chemicals.

The IG Farben cartel was crucial to the Nazi war effort by supplying synthetic fuel, rubber, and other chemicals. They also manufactured Zyklon-B, the nerve gas used to kill millions at the concentration camps of Auschwitz, Birkenau and elsewhere. The cartel, later known as the Devil’s Chemists, used unwilling inmates of the concentration camps as slave labourers and guinea pigs to test chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and vaccines. Tens of thousands died, and those who became too ill to be of any use were murdered in the gas chambers.

Dr. Fritz ter Meer, a director of IG Farben who was directly involved in developing the nerve gas, Zyklon-B, which killed millions of Jews, was sentenced to seven years in prison but was released after four years through the intervention of Rockefeller and J.J. McCloy, then U.S. High Commissioner for Germany. An unrepentant Fritz ter Meer, guilty of genocide and crimes against humanity, returned to work in Bayer where he served as Chairman for more than 10 years, until 1961.

Yes, the very same company that now manufacturers vaccines was once run by an actual Nazi war crimes criminal who used chemicals to commit genocide.

And it seems nothing at all has changed. Except that now instead of merely the Nazi state-run media promoting the genocide, today the entire corporate-controlled “mainstream” media is pushing the same genocidal medicine in the name of “public health.”

Now you know the truth that the vaccine deep state has been desperately trying to conceal. You also know why every effort has been made to publicly discredit my reputation, my scientific research and my journalism in order to prevent the public from learning the truth about the weaponization of vaccines and the ongoing global depopulation agenda.

Share this article with everyone you know. Open the eyes of others, and you just might save the lives of fellow human beings who have already been targeted for extermination by the vaccine depopulation industry.

More evidence of the deliberate spread of Kaposi's sarcoma in Africa

More evidence of the deliberate spread of Kaposi's sarcoma in Africa

The sudden onset of Kaposi's sarcoma clusters among black people in South Africa from 1949 onwards, provided a reason for striking examinations and apparent helpless interpretations.

As soon as the National Party came to power, the first edition of the South African Journal of Clinical Science dedicated the first 25 pages to this comparatively quite insignificant disease, in March 1950, describing 41 pages.

Between 1911 and 1947, there was not a single case of Kaposi's sarcoma in South Africa and only six cases of Kaposi's Sarcoma in Southern Africa (South Africa, former Protectorate of Bechuanaland, former Rhodesia, Mozambique, for South West Africa.)

Oettle explains the rarity of Kaposi's sarcoma during the period 1911-1947: "The diagnosis of Kaposi's sarcoma was missed by pathologist and clinician alike."

However, he does not give any foundation for his reproach to support his claim that there had always been a lot of Kaposi's sarcoma cases in South Africa. No such numbers for South Africa were checked again or publicly again afterwards. 

Between 1949-1953, there were 86 cases of which 82 were 'Bantus,' and of these, 63 were from Transvall (approx. 15 per year). 

Besides this extraordinary rare among black people, it also became remarkable that of the ten pale-skinned cases who fell ill between 1942-1952, six of them were women, of whom five were Afrikaners, who were classified as 'Aryans.'

Since the hitherto known figures confirm roughly 15 times more men than women suffer from Kaposi's sarcoma, these results of 1942-1952, can also be a pointer to a new form of spreading of this disease in South Africa.

A similar noticeable incidence among women was reported on from the South African province Natal from 1950-1955. Seventeen African men and eight African women succumbed to the disease there. 


More evidence of the deliberate spread of Kaposi's sarcoma in Africa

From 1953-1955, the reported number of cases suddenly dropped spontaneously; there were 21 cases in South Africa and eight in the Transvaal, less than a year.

Without any solution to gun violence, Trump blames mental disorder as the cause

Without any solution to gun violence, Trump blames mental disorder as the cause

When the latest school shooting took place a few days ago at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, President Trump tweeted:

“So many signs that the Florida shooter was mentally disturbed, even expelled from school for bad and erratic behaviour. Neighbours and classmates knew he was a big problem. Must always report such instances to authorities, again and again!”

With declarations such as these, President Trump and a number of his colleagues made school shootings a question largely about mental health implying that the cause of such actions is that the people carrying them out are mentally ill.

In doing so they help perpetuate the stereotype that mentally ill individuals are violent and dangerous, and thus reinforce stigmatising beliefs about mental illness that, though common, are unfair and erroneous.

Associating mental illness with violence is, in a certain respect, a natural reaction to an action that to most people seems unfathomable. 

It is natural in the sense that in trying to understand mass shootings and to find something to blame them on especially when they involve children, one immediately asks who would do such a thing and a common answer is that nobody who thinks like us, like most people, would. In this, purely statistical sense, a person who acts in this way is abnormal.

One could then take the further step and associate this behaviour to other kinds of behaviour that is often incomprehensible to the unaccustomed eye and which is often associated with mental illness—such as behaviour exhibited by depressed individuals or by people suffering from anxiety, psychosis, obsessions, and compulsions.

Though mental illness is not necessarily accompanied by strange behaviour (and exhibiting strange and abnormal behaviour does not mean you have a mental illness), the belief that it is held by many people and so the connection is easy to make. 

So one way the association between mental illness with extreme violent behaviour can be made is by associating it first with incomprehensible behaviour, and then connecting it with other behaviours we experience as incomprehensible.

Another way to make the association could be by saying that only someone who is “sick” could do such a thing—and the sickness, in this case, would not be associated with heart disease or diabetes, but with a sickness of the mind.

However the link may be made, and however easy it may be to be led to make this link, this association is not only not supported by empirical evidence, but it is also counterproductive—both when it comes to addressing mental illness, and to addressing mass shootings and gun violence in general.

This is not to deny that some mass shooters are mentally ill. Some are. Just as some (most) mass shooters are not mentally ill. In either case, though, generalising to the whole population (that of the mentally ill or to the not mentally ill) is unfair and not supported by evidence.

There is substantial research that shows that the correlation between mental illness and violence is much lower than is commonly assumed and those mass shooters are not in their majority mentally ill. Even in cases of severe mental illness, like schizophrenia, research shows that there is no significant link between mental illness and mass shootings or other forms of extreme violence.

In fact, the evidence shows that the percentage of mentally ill people that are violent is less than the percentage of violent people in non-mentally ill populations. For instance, data shows that at most only around 5% of crimes in the U.S. are performed by people with mental illness and that the percentage is the same for violent crimes—which means that 95% of violent crimes are committed by non-mentally ill individuals.

And, of course, most mental illness is not correlated with violence at all. There is no link between violence and most mental disorders like, for instance, ADHD, Asperger’s, anxiety disorders, OCD, anorexia or bulimia nervosa.

People living with such disorders, just like people with mental disorders of any kind, are no more violent than people who do not have these conditions. So associating violence with mental illness stigmatises a whole group of people unfairly.

Though mental illness of any kind in itself is not predictive of violence, a tendency towards extreme violent behaviour is associated with other risk factors including various environmental stressors, past trauma (e.g., physical abuse), substance abuse, domestic violence, a history of incarceration, parental criminal history and access to firearms. 

For instance, there is substantial evidence that people with mental illness who do end up committing violent crimes (just as people who are not mentally ill but commit violent crimes) are also substance users, a factor which is a more reliable indication of violent behaviour than the presence of mental illness.

It is factors such as these that, regardless of mental health, are predictive of violent tendencies and violent behaviour. 

Ignoring such determinants of violence boils down to a form of scapegoating trying to easily make sense of mass shootings by blaming them on mental illness while ignoring scientific research that shows that this phenomenon is much more complicated and that addressing it effectively will have to involve focusing on other factors, including sociocultural ones.

I have written in a past blog post about the effects that stigma has on mental illness and how it affects the quality of life and the recovery prospects of people living with mental disorders. 

I argued there that perpetuating wrong stereotypes about mental health is a public health issue but it is also a question of social justice. This is also the case when it comes to blaming mental illness for mass shootings.

One effect that this stigmatisation can have on people with mental illness is that they will avoid seeking treatment in order not to be labelled as dangerous. Clearly, this is a form of harm towards innocent people, since it compromises their recovery prospects and thus their quality of life.

 But this also means that potentially dangerous people—people with violent tendencies—will also not seek therapy since, they too, will not want to be labeled as mentally ill and thus carry the stigma that goes with such a label.

In the end, it is misguided to causally connect extreme violence with mental health issues in general and, more importantly, it is unlikely that doing so will have any effect in preventing such incidents from happening again.

Instead of taking the easy route of scapegoating we should try to understand and address the various determinants of violence, including sociocultural determinants, and make sure that people with violent tendencies have access to affordable therapy and that, regardless of their mental health, they do not have access to guns.
