I don’t usually wade into political waters, but this deserves a note. Gov Perry from Texas is now getting into the presidential race for 2012. He is in the pocket of Merck. He remains the first and only governor in the US to try to force Gardasil vaccines, injections for 9 year old girls. He withdrew this mandate under a firestorm of revolt in Texas and across the country. This article lays it out in full detail.

How soon we forget…

(From the CDC) As of June 22, 2011, approximately 35 million doses of Gardasil were distributed in the U.S. and VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System) received a total of 18,727 reports of adverse events following Gardasil vaccination: 17,958 reports among females and 346 reports for males, of which 285 reports were received after the vaccine was licensed for males in October 2009.

Deaths: As of June 22, 2011 there have been a total 68 VAERS reports of death among those who have received Gardasil® . There were 54 reports among females, 3 were among males, and 11 were reports of unknown gender. There have been 32 confirmed deaths and 36 remain unconfirmed due to no identifiable patient information in the report such as a name and contact information to confirm the report.

If there were this many reported adverse events from a supplement or vitamin….or even a medication, would it still be on the market? It has been estimated that only between 1 and 10% of all adverse events are reported.

  1. I have not forgotten!

  2. I haven’t forgotten either…and when I hear his name, this is what nags at my heart. He scares me in this regard!

  3. They recently offered the Gardasil vaccine to my 13yo son with aspergers/autism. I said “nope” out loud, but in my head I said “hell no”!

    • Thanks for one more reason not to elect Perry.

      I fear he is not the only politician with ties to the drug industry …

      As the amendments forced on the Health Bill prove.

      As an over 65 in England, I pay nothing for my prescriptions.

  4. I do not believe that this one mistake on Gov. Perry’s part should disqualify him in everyone’s mind. Frankly, I think we have a better opportunity with him because of the ‘teachable moment’ that firestorm caused.

    • Thanks for your comment, Beth, and perhaps you will be right. On August 15, LifeNews.com posted an article called, “Rick Perry Admits Mistake on Gardasil-HPV Vaccine Decision.” Let’s hope it was sincere. article

      And I hope that the words he spoke during his recent speech were from his head/heart and not just the words of a talented speech writer. At this point, I don’t trust him and his deep associations with Pharma.

  5. I still haven’t gotten over him being the texting while driving law, nearly got hit yesterday! Perry is a fool, just what we need in DC

  6. Yes, There are many, many, many other drugs on the market that have adverse effects. But we as parents have to weigh the risks and not be mandated to do so. Celebrex now lets them be known, but for the Cancer paitient in imense pain, they may decide they are worth it. But in 1991, when my son was born, we did not know the effects ( or weren’t told ) about the intense levels of Mercury in the vaccines he got. I believe is how my son became Autistic and non-verbal. Did I want my daughter to be subjected to the Gardasil vaccine….NO!

  7. Rick Perry not only tried to force young girls in Texas to take the Gardisil shot, but he also acted to block passage of a bill that would have prohibited the TSA from groping people in their private parts in Texas. He acted like he really favored the bill, but he really obstructed it. Regrettably, it did not pass. You could check out the Campaign for Liberty’s website(www.campaignforliberty.com) and also look up “Texas”.

  8. I am ever horrified when I read of a medical procedure, which would include any shot, to kill someone, when the entire reason for medical personnel or the industry itself, is to do no harm; to prevent death. We are a statistics-driven culture, more concerned with playing the odds (the keyword here being “play”) than we are about dealing with serious issues, such as this one, which Dr. Tenpenny has taken a stand for: Kudos! The self-interest of those who want to reduce their chances of contracting a disease, are best witnessed in the inoculation of the masses, so they can reduce their odds, but do so at the (knowing) expense of others.

    I have read many articles here, and I was led to this blog from the dot com of Dr. Tenpenny, while I was seeking her email address, which I did not find. Normally, I instruct people to ignore anyone who are on the web (making any and all claims), when they do not provide a contact point; when they deliberately avoid contact, for it looks like avoidance. However, in this case, the Dr. does have some pertinent data to share. I discovered this site while web-researching the constitutionality of a State (in my case, AR) imposing vaccination requirements when accepting federal funding – profiting from student loans and grants.

    As for politicians, we must all realize that all politicians – not just one – get into office via their campaigns, which are (nowadays) always funded by some corporation or special interest. There are a few defining words that apply herein, such as Plutocracy or Oligarchy; however, non-critical-thinking individuals, who make up the bulk of our culture, simply comply with what they’re told. Therefore, vaccines (too) have gained popularity. This is what makes this blog content so important.

    Vaccines are given to children for the same reason that war is fought with teenagers; they do not yet have the intellectual capacity to make wise decisions; they are gullible. I too, am non-political, but for me it is because the system as a whole was/is so deeply and thoroughly corrupt, that it becomes pointless to try to cull out the good from the bad. The quest for power is, of itself, symptomatic.
