Are you paying attention, kids? THIS is how propaganda works.
The mainstream media is falling all over themselves to hail the latest vaccine safety study. That’s right. This study proves that vaccines are safe as safe can be, so we should all go out and shoot ourselves and our kids up right away. Just check out some of these reassuring headlines and excerpts.
“Public health experts have taken a fresh look at the safety records of childhood vaccines and once again pronounced them safe.”
“It’s especially helpful as more parents are either skeptical about vaccines, and need reassurance that getting their children is the safe, and responsible thing to do, or are adamantly convinced that vaccines do more harm than good.”

The findings “should be reassuring to parents of young children and to the clinicians who care for them,” said Dr. Carrie Byington, of the University of Utah’s Department of Pediatrics, writing in an editorial accompanying the review.
By the way, that’s despite the fact that they did also admit a little further down that, “Although uncommon, some vaccines were linked with adverse reactions: the MMR vaccine was linked with an increased risk of fever-triggered seizures; flu vaccines were linked with an increased risk of gastrointestinal problems such as diarrhea; chickenpox vaccines were linked with an increased risk of complications for children with immune deficiencies; and the rotavirus vaccine was linked with an increased risk of a serious intestinal disorder called intussusception.” But it certainly was a sweeping review. I know I feel totally reassured. USA Today: Study finds vaccine side effects extremely rare
“There is a lot of misinformation out there about vaccines,” says co-author Margaret Maglione, also a researcher with Rand. “With the rise of the Internet and the decline of print journalism, anyone can put anything on the Internet.”
…but then the outlet goes on to admit farther down…
“The new report notes that some vaccines, including flu shots and the combined vaccine against measles, mumps and rubella, are associated with an increased risk of fever-related seizures in small children. Although these seizures can be frightening for parents, they’re typically benign and cause no long-term problems.”
Yeah, it’s just a few seizures, no big deal… NY Daily News: Vaccines have low risk of serious side effects: study
The systematic review excluded reports to the federal Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System, which contains complaints filed by individuals or health care professionals if they suspect a vaccine may have caused a problem with a patient’s health. “We didn’t use that data because there is no comparison group out there and there is no way to really assess the validity and reliability,” said co-author Margaret Maglione, a policy analyst at RAND Corporation.
Hard to believe they actually admitted they aren’t even consulting the adverse event reporting system where victims officially report how vaccines have screwed them up — in a study proclaiming adverse events are rare. Of course adverse vaccine events are “extremely rare” when the adverse vaccine event reports are admittedly ignored!
And the government has paid out millions in damages for just such adverse events. Victims of the HPV vaccine Gardasil, for example, have been awarded some $6 million dollars for vaccine damage claims filed with the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) — and that’s after rejecting half of the claims made. In 2012, the government paid nearly a million dollars to a family after a boy suffered permanent neurological damage resulting in autism following an MMR vaccine:
According to a document filed on December 13, 2012, Chief Special Master Patricia E. Campbell-Smith awarded Ryan B. Mojabi $969,474.91 for injuries caused by the MMR vaccine.  You should also know the money awarded comes from a vaccine tax and not from taking the vaccine manufacturers to court. Page two of the filing declares Ryan suffered, “a severe and debilitating injury to his brain, described as Autism Spectrum Disorder (‘ASD’).” It continues, he “suffered a Vaccine Table Injury, namely, an encephalopathy as a result of his receipt of the MMR vaccination on December 19, 2003.”
But beyond that, most people don’t read the news past the headline, so they’ll see all these stories and think, “Wow, research just keeps on confirming how great and safe these vaccine products are” and not give it a second thought — that second thought which should be how utterly ridiculous it is that anyone, anywhere would take health advice from the likes of the RAND Corporation.
USA Today and NY Daily News wrote the magic words though — that study co-author Maglione, who has been extensively quoted all over the place, is actually a policy analyst at RAND. That’s one of the so-called “pediatric experts” telling us it’s safe to get vaccines. In fact, of the 10 authors on this study, a whopping nine of them work for RAND.
The RAND Corporation is, in essence, the think tank and premier private research center of America’s military-industrial complex (you know, the one that former President Dwight D. Eisenhower warned us all would take over the country and endanger our freedom, government processes and basic way of life some day if we let it get out of control?). RAND is and has been involved in all sorts of covert intelligence projects for the government, while concurrently performing research for private firms, and has been historically financed by the Ford, Carnegie and of course, Rockefeller foundations:
Covert foreign policy became the standard mode of operation after World War II, which was also when Ford Foundation became a major player for the first time. The institute most involved in classified research was Rand Corporation, set up by the Air Force in 1948. The interlocks between the trustees at Rand, and the Ford, Rockefeller, and Carnegie foundations were so numerous that the Reece Committee listed them in its report (two each for Carnegie and Rockefeller, and three for Ford). Ford gave one million dollars to Rand in 1952 alone, at a time when the chairman of Rand was simultaneously the president of Ford Foundation.
That being said, it shouldn’t even surprise anyone to learn that Michael Rich, Rand’s President and Chief Executive Officer, is also a member of the Council on Foreign Relations.
So these are the people telling parents not to worry, vaccines are perfectly safe and there’s very little risk. The RAND Corporation. An arm of our military-industrial complex co-funded by the elite globalists over at the Rockefeller and Ford foundations.
That’s exactly who we should be taking medical advice from, yes?
Never mind that, if a vaccine injury irreparably damages you or your child, the concept of an “extremely rare” risk becomes utterly meaningless.
USA Today quoted one lady as saying that, while the study might not be able to persuade parents outright, maybe at least it will persuade doctors to promote more vaccines to parents.
Yep. And that is how propaganda works.
