Evidence Contradicts Whooping Cough Pro-Vaccine Propaganda

In the traditional manner of annual pro-vaccine propaganda, a recent report by Laura L. Myers of Reuters published on July 20, 2012, continues the seasonal fear-mongering by the vaccine industry and the medical establishment in an attempt to stampede Americans into receiving the DTaP (Diptheria, Tetanus & Pertussis) vaccine.

Entitled, “U.S. whooping cough outbreak could be worst in half century,” the article repeats the warning that has undoubtedly come straight from the vaccine industry and the public health agencies they control, that 2012 “is on track to be the most severe [Pertussis outbreak] in over half a century . . .”

The culprit for the next outbreak that will kill us all? You guessed it – the lack of vaccination.

In her article Myers states (repeats) the claim that “possible waning vaccination” is the cause for the alleged increase in the numbers of Pertussis cases occurring in the United States in 2012.

Myers (and every other mainstream media outlet that reprinted this drug company and medical agency press release) goes on to repeat the following statistics in a manner that is clearly intended to frighten the less-informed into rushing to their nearest clinic and begging for the DTaP shot. She writes,
Washington State, which declared an epidemic in April, and Wisconsin were particularly hard hit, with each reporting more than 3,000 cases, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. 
Nine people have died overall and the number of cases was already more than double than at the same time last year.
The article continues by quoting Dr. Anne Schuchat of the CDC as stating that the current outbreak could actually overtake the most severe outbreak that allegedly occurred in 1959, “when 40,000 cases were reported.” 

At this point, it is difficult not to be reminded of the Swine Flu “pandemic” that would eclipse the previous outbreak in 1976 and cause widespread death the world over. Obviously, the answer to this public health crisis was vaccines, vaccines, and more vaccines – even if they were untested and filled with toxic chemicals. But while the fearful masses rushed to their doctors and health departments to receive the shots, it was determined later that not only was the Swine Flu risks overinflated, but that the entire affair was concocted by the drug companies and health agencies[1] in an effort to boost the vaccine industry.

Nevertheless, it is important to look at the new propaganda push centered around the DTaP or Pertussis/Whooping Cough vaccine in 2012.

First, through cleverly worded statistics, the individual who put these reports together was indeed able to make the cases of Pertussis seem to be a public health emergency. Yet, although the numbers may be high, the speculation that those numbers will rise to the levels of the alleged 1959 peak is just that – speculation.

In fact, in pointing out that 9 people have died so far- although it sounds terrifying - does not necessarily mean that this year will bring about even more deaths. While 1959 does represent somewhat of a peak in the statistics presented by the CDC, the fact is that even if the number of deaths in 2012 double to 18, the death rate would still not equal that of the years 2004 or 2005.

This is not to say, however, that cases of Pertussis are not on the rise. It is merely to show that the population should not engage in immediate panic and emergency measures.

Indeed, there is cause for concern regarding the disturbing trend of increasing cases of Pertussis, not just in 2012, but overall since the late 1990s. However, this concern should not be expressed for the reasons we are fed by the mainstream media and medical establishment, i.e. “waning vaccination rates.”

In fact, we should all be concerned for an entirely different reason – the fact that it is not waning vaccination rates that is causing the uptick in cases of Pertussis, but increased vaccination rates.

Keep in mind, the recent increase in cases of Pertussis occurring from the mid-1980s to the present, (as represented by the statistics provided by the CDC on page 220 of the CDC PinkBook pdf “Pertussis”) has taken place in the most vaccinated population in history.

However, the fact that the morbidity and mortality rates of Whooping Cough have decreased as a whole since its once legitimately-feared status as child killer in the late 1800s and early 1900s is not debatable. What is debatable is the reason for this decrease.

To clear up any confusion in the statistics provided by the CDC in the PinkBook “Pertussis” booklet, it is important to note that the statistics provided on page 219 allegedly demonstrating the effectiveness of the Pertussis vaccine have been cleverly cropped in order to present false data.

In this graph, we see the steep decline of cases of Whooping Cough in the ten-year period that the vaccine was itself introduced. However, the graph actually begins in the same ten-year period in which the vaccine was introduced, thus preventing us from seeing whether or not there was in fact a decrease (or even an increase) in the rates of Whooping Cough at the time the graph begins.

Of course, when the full numbers are shown, the information actually demonstrates that the rates of Whooping Cough in the U.S. had already declined in a decisive fashion before the vaccine was ever introduced. The same trend is shown in the statistics of England and Wales.[2] Thus, the vaccine cannot be credited with the reduction of Whooping Cough.

More likely, it was improved sanitation standards coupled with the recovery from the Great Depression and gains made by the labor movement (health, safety, working condition laws and rules, etc.) that actually ended the reign of Pertussis.

But while the fact that the CDC would intentionally create statistics that misrepresent the truth regarding the efficacy of the Pertussis vaccine should be alarming, what is even more concerning is the fact that the efficacy of the vaccine itself has never been proven. In fact, there has never been a study proving any vaccine to be effective that wasn’t funded or conducted by a drug company or vaccine maker.[3]

Even the mainstream media outlet Reuters has had to admit that GlaxoSmithKline “has never studied the duration of the vaccine’s protection after the shot given to four- to six-year-olds.”

Indeed, even more concerning than the basic efficacy of the vaccination are the dangers associated with the shot. For instance, as Alex Loglia explains, the potential side effects of the DTaP (labeled DPT in his paper) vaccine are:
  1. Severe temperature elevations 105 degrees or higher.
  2. Collapse with rapid recovery.
  3. Collapse followed by prolonged prostration in shock-like state.
  4. Screaming episodes.
  5. Isolated convulsions with or without fever.
  6. Frank encephalopathy, which is brain damage, with changes in the level of consciousness, focal neurological signs, convulsions with or without permanent neurological and/or mental deficit.
And these are just the side effects which are admitted and listed on the vaccine insert.

In addition, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), has also been linked to the DTaP vaccination.

Yet, ironically, one of the more common side effects of the Pertussis vaccination is that it may actually cause Pertussis. In fact, in the Reuters article quoted earlier, Dr. David Witt of the Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in San Rafael, California actually admitted that Pertussis was more likely to occur in vaccinated individuals than it is in those who are not vaccinated. Obviously, to Dr. Witt and to many low-level vaccine proponents, this may seem counterintuitive.

Nevertheless, the article reads,
In early 2010, a spike in cases appeared at Kaiser Permanente in San Rafael, and it was soon determined to be an outbreak of whooping cough -- the largest seen in California in more than 50 years. Witt had expected to see the illnesses center around unvaccinated kids, knowing they are more vulnerable to the disease. "We started dissecting the data. What was very surprising was the majority of cases were in fully vaccinated children. That's what started catching our attention.
Regardless, even in the latest Reuters article, and in the many other propaganda pieces repeated throughout the mainstream media, it has been admitted that the cases involving the highest illness rate had, in fact, been vaccinated with the DTaP shot.

When one understands the preceding facts, then it becomes easier to understand why the rates of Pertussis have been climbing along with the rate of vaccinations.

Furthermore, the fact that the United States economy is crumbling along with its infrastructure and almost every other traditional aspect of American life, adds to the danger of legitimate outbreaks as well as those caused by vaccines and medical obstinence.

Lastly, it must be noted that the idea of vaccination against Pertussis is not necessarily a logical one. This is because Pertussis is not caused by a virus, but a bacteria. In addition, Pertussis is an illness which can be treated with antibiotics.

The recent media barrage of fear regarding the potential 2012 Pertussis “outbreaks” which may have been caused by the vaccine itself, is nothing more than a recycling of tried and true propaganda designed to deceive the general public into accepting yet another toxic and dangerous vaccine.

Every year, the American people are subjected to the hyping of a coming epidemic that will decimate humanity and, of course, kill their children if they do not rush to their doctor's office or the local health department for a deadly shot.

In reality, it is the vaccine that is more likely to cause the disease(s) and/or side effects that will kill them or their children.
