Dear Senator Allen,
Thanks so much for your editorial piece in the Sac Bee from the other day. And thank you so much for bringing forth SB 277. By initiating this bill, the long, misunderstood, complex, polarizing issue of vaccine safety is coming to light, and it is long overdue. Without your legislation and your leadership, much of this information would still be in the shadows. I, for one, will be eternally grateful to you for that fact alone. Because now we can have The Discussion.
First off, I’d like to say how deeply sorry I am Senator Allen, that your father had to live through and suffer the effects polio. I am certainly no polio expert, but I do know thanks to the advent of modern medicine, indoor plumbing and clean water, fortunately we haven’t seen a case of “wild” (i.e., natural) polio acquired in the United States since 1979 (vaccineinformation.org).
I don’t know anyone who has had to live through polio so I could never imagine what it has been like to live in your dad’s shoes. I am certain his struggle made a huge impact on you as a child growing up. And I am also certain, as you have stated on record, it has been a big influencer for you around this legislation.
However, Ben — may I call you Ben, since we are having The Discussion? — it seems you’ve been sold a bit of bill of goods here (dare I say revisionist history?).
You see, inspired by conflicting reports in the media of vaccine effectiveness/ineffectiveness/lawsuits/corruption and forced mandates, I decided to take a look further into the history of polio myself, and what I found is very interesting.
If your father had received the polio vaccine in 1955 when it was introduced, there’s a good chance he could have contracted the very same disease he was trying to avoid. That’s because the incidents of polio actually increased substantially after the introduction of mass vaccination programs, resulting in a 50% increase in cases from 1957-’58 and 80% from 1958-’59.
According to the U.S. Government Department of Records, Dr. Bernard Greenberg, head of the Department of Biostatistics of the University of North Carolina School of Public Health, testified to that fact in 1962 during US Congressional Hearings. He also testified that statistics “were manipulated to give the impression of the effectiveness of the Salk vaccine.” (Source: Intensive Immunization Programs, Hearings before the Committee on Interstate & Foreign Commerce, House of Representatives, 87th Congress, 2nd Session on H.R. 10541, Washington DC: US Government Printing Office, 1962; pp. 96-97)
In 1976, Dr. Jonas Salk himself, creator of the dead-virus polio vaccine used in the 1950s, testified before congress that the live-virus vaccine he helped pioneer (the same one used in the United States between early 1960 & 2000) was the “principal if not sole cause” of all reported polio cases in the U.S. since 1961 (Washington Post, September 24, 1976).
Because the polio virus remains in the throat for one to two weeks and in the feces for up to two months (an effect we now call shedding), vaccine recipients and those around them are at risk, and can potentially spread the disease, as long as fecal excretion of the virus continues (American Academy of Pediatrics, Report of the Committee on Infectious Diseases: 1986 (Elk Grove Village, Illinois: AAP):284–5).
In 1992, the Federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) published an admission that the live-virus vaccine had become the dominant cause of polio in the United States, and in fact, according to CDC figures, every case of polio in the U.S. since 1979 was caused by the oral polio vaccine (Strebel PM., et al. Epidemiology of poliomyletis in U.S. one decade after the last reported case of indigenous wild virus associated disease, Clinical Infectious Diseases CDC, February 1992:568 79).
Pretty incredible, huh?
It’s gets even more interesting when you look at what happened five years’ prior to the introduction of Salk’s vaccine at the University of Pittsburgh.
In 1950, five years’ before Salk presented the world with the polio vaccine, William Hammon — also at the University of Pittsburgh — purified the gamma globulin component of the blood plasma of polio survivors using a natural concept called Passive Immunity. In a large clinical trial, Hammon proved that he could successfully reduce the severity of polio by about 80% in patients who had contracted polio, by using the naturally occurring antibodies in polio survivors.
Immune globulin was easy to source in 1950 because polio had been around since 1894. As a result the population as a whole had developed antibodies and polio, in fact, was on the decline.
The Passive Immunity immune globulin market today is an industry that’s expected to reach $11 billion by 2021. Hammon was on the right track. Maybe, if his protocol were followed through your father would have been spared polio, since — as we’ve just learned — vaccines are directly responsible for spreading the virus.
All I know is, since we’re having The Discussion, I’ve got to ask: are you sure SB 277 is the right agenda at the right time? Is it the right move to be choosing to force the children of California to be injecting their bodies with controversial products that are currently facing lawsuits and questionable efficacy? Especially when the largest manufacturer of vaccines, Merck, is under indictment by the U.S. Department of Justice for falsifying data that may prove they also do NOT have our best interest in mind? Is it possible that maybe, just maybe, a better approach would be to look at the truth of the history of vaccines and find a way to make them better? TO NOT be beholden to Big Pharma like all the other politicians? We love that you don’t take money from them, and we want to see you continue to be a rising star in the Democratic party.
We know Dr. Pan is drinking the cool-aide because we know Merck starts courting students when they are in medical school. He has to buy their baloney because he’s a part of their cover-up.
But you Ben, we want to be in The Discussion with you for years to come. We know you have our backs, we just want to work together so that we can both learn the truth as we go, and not alienate each other.
After all, we’re just getting started.
The political climate in America is heating up — not just because we’re entering a presidential election cycle — but because there’s a perfect storm brewing that is providing corporate access to our political system like never before.
For Californians, it has shown up in the form of Sen. Richard Pan.
Pan, D-Sacramento, is a pediatrician. He has been the driving force behind all major vaccine legislation in California for the past five years. As a state assemblyman, he launched and helped pass AB 2109, legislation signed into law that directly caused a 6% increase in vaccinations statewide from 2010 to 2014 (89% to 94.7%).
Now, a state senator, Pan is pushing SB 277. And all along the way he promised his constituents he would preserve parental choice. He lied.
Pan’s SB 277 — a bill written specifically to deny parent’s rights to access public schools if they opt out of vaccinations — closes the loophole Big Pharma has tried to close for years. By using policy, pharmaceutical companies are attempting to seed their profits nationwide, forcing those who delay or opt out for religious or personal beliefs to be denied a public school education.
It’s already happened in Mississippi and West Virginia. And it’s happening to the tune of 110 bills in 35 states that have been rolled out on cue during the past 90 days following a trumped-up measles apocalypse-that-was-not at Disneyland in December 2014 (134 cases, nobody died, .000003% of California’s population).
If Pan passes SB 277, Californians would all be required, according to the CDC schedule, to take 35 injections by the age of 6 in order to attend public school. And, despite the most basic notion of conflict of interest, Sen. Pan’s taken money all along the way from the world’s largest vaccine manufacturer, Merck, as far back as the beginning of his political career in 2010.
And he has company.
Sen. Holly Mitchell, co-author of SB 277, accepted contributions — according to Merck’s website — as recently as last July when she was elected in a special election. In doing so, she may be guilty of violating the 1974 California Political Campaign reform act, which reads:
“… no gift or gifts aggregating two hundred fifty dollars ($250) or more in value provided to, received by, or promised to the public official within 12 months prior to the time when the decision is made.”
Mitchell voted on SB 277 last week, which would make her in violation since SB 277 would bring financial gain to Merck who gave her money within 12 months of the vote.
Mitchell has been receiving direct funding from Merck as far back as 2010, as have other members of the State Senate Health Committee (see chart below) including Sen. Andy Vidak. Vidak also received direct funds from Merck as recently as 2014. Vidak was set to vote on the bill Wednesday as a member of the Education Committee, but because it was tabled he will vote privately next week. Voting on this bill could also put him inside the restricted 12-month period (click here to see the campaign donations).
Education Committee Chairman Carol Liu expressed a desire for religious exemption to be an option in California, after witnessing droves of parents of vaccine injured children show up at Wednesday’s hearing (click on the above link and start at 48:30 to hear). There were also educators, health professionals and constituents that came forward to let their voices be heard in opposition to the proposed legislation. Liu gave Pan one week to re-tool and return for a private vote next week.
But the larger question remains: How did we get here in the first place?
In 1986 the U.S. Supreme Court ruled vaccines are “unavoidably unsafe.” The ruling allowed Big Pharma to be exempt from any responsibility of injury, and instead the Government set up a separate ‘court’ that pays Big Pharma’s bill for those who are either have a vaccine injured child or have a child who died as a result of vaccines. To date, the government-sponsored Vaccine Injury Fund has paid out $3 billion in settlement costs to families. Result? No Courts. You can’t sue a vaccine manufacturer if you are injured.
The next puzzle piece fell into place in the late ’90s. when the FCC deregulated its advertising policy allowing for pharmaceutical companies to market drugs direct-to-consumers (DTC marketing). That’s when the ‘ask your doctor’ commercials started showing up on television, which allows companies like Merck to market their drugs directly to children. Merck did exactly that with their controversial Gardasil vaccine, launching a fear campaign on VH1 that targeted teenage girls directly to get them to go to their parents and ask to get the shots. It worked.
It is also what has enabled Big Pharma to own the media, who in the age of the internet, are fighting for every advertising dollar they can get to stay alive. According to Robert Kennedy, Jr., Big Pharma is responsible for up to 70% of the advertising revenue on network television in non-election years and, as a result, major networks refuse to air the story. Result? No media.
So our courts are bought, our media is bought. What’s left?
Routine campaign practices: In 2014, Merck Pharmaceuticals spent $1 million plus on political donations made directly to candidates running for office across the United States. Those contributions follow a pattern of typically small, $1,000, $2,500, etc., mainly because they are direct and on the record.
But if you dig a little deeper, it turns out the indirect contributions are where things start to get more interesting. The real money is shuffled from hand-to-hand via third-party groups called political action committees (PACs).
For example, Merck gives $15k to the PAC Biotech Industrial Organization; the Biotech Industrial Organization turns around and gives $10k to the Democratic Governor’s Association. The Democratic Party is the largest contributor to Sen. Pan’s campaigns (followthemoney.org). PACs like, PhRMA (Amgen, Merck, Pfizer, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Eli Lilly, Novartis, Abbvie Inc.) regularly fund politician’s campaigns (see $54,000 & $6,000 contributions by PhRMA to California politicians in the chart above), but they do it in ways you and I might never suspect. Result? No politicians.
PhRMA hired 757 lobbyists in 15 years.
Merck gives ten times that and more in national grants at medical schools and universities, thereby sprinkling the money like a bread-crumb trail to up-and-coming doctors and researchers making sure they are bought before they even get out of medical school.
It gets worse.
Merck is the exclusive maker and manufacturer of 10 vaccines currently on the CDC schedule, the most controversial being Gardasil and the MMR. (Gardasil is facing formal criminal complaints from Spain filed in August of last year. The story has yet to make headlines amongst major media outlets in the United States at the time of this post.)
Merck’s MMR vaccine is the subject of a Department of Justice investigation for falsifying clinical efficacy results, which could indicate vaccine failure and be the reason for recent outbreaks among vaccinated individuals (the story only appears in mainstream media on Huff Post Canada). Former virologist-turned-whistleblower Dr. Bill Thompson alleges Merck falsified data with the MMR in order to meet the 95% efficacy rate which is the benchmark required by the FDA to maintain its monopoly on patent.
Cut to the heavily trumped-up Disneyland measles outbreak which appeared at the happiest place on earth just a few months after the #CDCWhistleblower story came forward. According to the California Department of Public Health the all clear will sound April 17.
So, is Sen. Pan acting in the best interest of Californians by pushing policy to mandate the injections of Merck’s products into our bodies at a time when the safety and efficacy of the company’s products is in serious question? Or is Pan putting the agenda of his campaign financiers first? Are our politicians gone? Is your politician on Merck’s payroll? More important, do you care if ‘biostitutes’ are making decisions that affect your children?
No courts. No media. No politicians. So all that’s left is the parents. It’s up to us. If you are concerned and want to say enough is enough, contact your state representatives and let your voice be heard.

I am truly saddened that the people of California entrusted their government to Senator Richard Pan. IMAO, he is the picture of what’s wrong with medicine today.
“There’s no scientific evidence to prove vaccines causes autism.”
– Sen. Dick Pan
Since when does a doctor diagnose his patients based on a scientific study?
Aren’t they supposed to look at what they see in front of them? Oh wait — he’s a pediatrician, but he doesn’t really see patients anymore and hasn’t for years. So how does he know what these families are going through every single day and night of their lives?
I see no compassion. I see no evidence of a kind healer.
So I say this, Dick Pan:
“There is no evidence of any kind to prove going to medical school makes you a healer — a bearer of light who seeks first to DO NO HARM. I think you might have taken the hypocritic oath by mistake, so please resign yourself from all activity around legislating our rights away and get yourself together.”
Sen. Pan, why don’t you try looking into the eyes and faces of a family that lives with vaccine injury EVERY DAY? Search #HearThisWell on youtube to see the proof. No? Oh that’s right. You don’t want to look the truth in the eye, because then you will have to live with the truth of what you are doing.
You don’t know the truth because you DON’T WANT to know the truth. You want to stay ignorant so you feel justified in what you are doing. You don’t want to feel guilty for taking that plenitude of big pharma money that funded your two elections and keep pushing their agenda like a good doobie. Just like Merck, you have no interest in being accountable, you just want to keep counting your donations.
You are an ego out of control, sir. And I am saddened that you are trying to drag our state and our country down to your level (you can’t btw, your rookie, out-of-touch legislation has only brought us out of the woodwork and into the streets where we are talking and bonding and sharing and working together).
This MESS called a vaccine program must be sorted out, making them MANDATORY certainly is not the issue. Parents ABSOLUTELY will have free choice to opt out. And even when and if it IS sorted out, our bodies and our children’s bodies belong to US. So keep your greedy mitts OFF!
#TheWorldisWakingUp Sen. Pan, don’t you think it’s time you do, too?
I say have no fear.
Because if you’re ready to meet that special someone, you will. I should know, because for years I did it all wrong. Once I understood how I was getting in my own way and decided let go of my own brokenness, he showed up like a date with destiny. In fact, I met him when I was on a blind date with someone else.
So if you’re a strong-minded single lady who just doesn’t understand why she can’t find her match, this post is for you. Guys, use it for good and not for evil. And Happy Valentine’s Day everyone.
1. Don’t be afraid to let him be the guy.
As modern women, we cultivate characteristics in our masculine side in order to succeed in our careers and achieve success. Not so in our personal lives. In fact, if we don’t make a conscious effort to shift from our masculine energy by day to our feminine energy by night, men get uninterested because there’s no space for their masculine energy to express itself.
If you are a successful career woman this may be something you struggle with. One way to balance it all out is to set healthy boundaries for yourself to let HIM CHASE YOU. If this is difficult you may find you get attached too quickly only to find out he’s the wrong guy. Another tool that will help is reading The Rules. It’s not game playing, it’s a way for you to relearn how to let him be the guy and how you can be more of the divine feminine. Follow The Rules, including not taking his calls and not calling him back until 24 hours after he leaves you a message. It’s scary if you are used to being a take-charge woman. Save the take charge for your career, but in love be the passive feminine!
2. Don’t accept any Last Minute Dates. And when you do go on a date, carry yourself fully in your divine feminine energy right down to your attire.
Accepting last minute dates, or group dates, is a mistake if you are struggling with letting your divine feminine express itself. Saturday night dates, per The Rules, MUST be accepted by the Wednesday before or you will find that you will teach him that you are available at the drop of a hat. Do not be afraid to say no or to push a date to the following week. The good guys will NOT lose interest. On the contrary, they will WANT you EVEN MORE! When you do go out on dates, skip the jeans and wear a pretty dress or skirt. Something soft and pretty. The guy you want will notice and he will like it.
3. Take a dating hiatus for a few weeks to study, take inventory and shift your thinking. After reading The Rules and Mars & Venus on a Date, start accepting dates two to three times a week, even if it means going on Match.com.
Online dating is PERFECT for practicing. It is NOT a department store for buying life partners, and you probably won’t meet him online. But it is a great way to practice, I call it the Dating Gym: if you don’t work your dating muscle, you will put too much emphasis on a date when you finally get one and you will blow it because you will be out of practice. Instead, date two to three times a week (I call this taking applications). Match.com is a great dating gym, and will help you get your game on. Be sure to follow safe boundaries and guidelines when dating online. And have fun while you’re at it — hopefully it will be your last dating flurry before meeting Prince Charming.
4. Beware the Oxytocin monster, and don’t become intimate before commitment.
Your mom was right: intimacy before commitment means trouble. But not the kind of trouble she told you about. The kind of trouble that could cause you to become, literally, addicted to the wrong. Why? A little hormone called oxytocin, which creates custom molecules for each guy you become involved with. And guess what? It is secreted even by the sound of his voice! It hooks you in, and if you don’t have contact for three days you will go through withdrawals scientists claim are as strong as heroin. So do yourself a favor: make sure you KNOW who you are getting involved with BEFORE you become intimate, or you will make yourself vulnerable to being addicted to the wrong guy. To learn more, read Dr. Louann Brizendine‘s books The Female Brain and The Male Brain. You will be amazed at how different we really are.
5. Make your list, check it twice. And three times. And four times.
I am a firm believer in metaphysics and manifesting your own reality. After all, thought precedes form in all things. And I have proven the Law of Attraction is real by using it in my own life. Make a list of every characteristic you want your man to have. EVERY one you can think of. Every time you go on a practice date, as soon as you get home add or subtract to your list based on what you saw or experienced. Be sure to put what you DO want and not what you don’t want. And include everything you can think of. I put ‘speaks French’ on my list after a practice date with a guy that ordered off the menu in French. Guess what? My husband is from France, and had no detectable accent when we met! I also put ‘no sisters’ and guess what? He’s an only child.
Don’t give up. Follow these steps and maybe next Valentine’s Day, you’ll be getting the ring: )
As I prepare for back to school night at my son’s preschool, I am also printing articles to share with parents on the importance of healthy snacks. Yes, I’m one of those moms. Why? Because sugar is toxic for children and needs to be treated as such. Don’t believe me, listen to Dr. Robert Lustig, a California endocrinologist who believes the consumption of added sugars has plunged America into a public health crisis.
