What struck me about Liam was his grasp of the vital contemporary issues in his field. His field was a restricted but growing one, that of the variance between the ‘official stories’ and the ‘truth’ which is investigated, observed and recorded by ‘the people’. In the contemporary world we must all play our part in attempting to explain this dichotomy. In the corral of illness and pharmaceutical drug production to investigate and write about these contradictions takes considerable courage and can only be approached by those who have a clear intellectual insight. Liam was one of these people. Martin Walker – Investigative Journalist and Author

It’s with great sadness that we share this tragic news about the recent passing of investigative journalist and humanitarian, Liam Scheff.

For those who have not come across him before, I wanted to share his work with you, and the tragedy that led to his untimely passing.

Liam first came into the alternative media scene when he broke a story highlighting the scandal of the NIH clinical trials involving the testing of new HIV drugs on black and poor children that had been taken away from their parents. While the center called them ‘orphans,’ some of the grandparents were wanting to look after them.

But there were other plans for these children.

In the early 2000s Liam was contacted by Christine Maggiore, who had been speaking to a lady who said her grandson had been taken away into care to the Incarnation Children’s Centre, (ICC)  a Catholic ‘orphans home’ for HIV positive children in NYC. She described an almost unbelievable story to Liam where she said children were being given — by force — HIV drugs, which she said were making them very sick, very fast.

Back then, HIV drugs, or ‘AZT’ as they were to be known, were rejected chemotherapy drugs and were incredibly toxic to healthy cells.

Liam took a visit to the center himself, and after what he witnessed, started investigating deeper, and wrote this news piece on what was going on. Hundreds of children (532 in total) were involved in this trial, which was supported by government agencies and pharmaceutical companies.

Liam wrote in the article “The Incarnation Children’s Center Story” that it was admitted that over 200 children from the study died:

They reported that twenty-five children died during the drug studies, that an additional fifty-five children died following the studies (in foster care), and, according to Tim Ross, Director of the Child Welfare program at VERA (as of 2009), 29% of the remaining 417 children who were used in drug studies had died (out of a total 532 children that are admitted to have been used). [LINK]

Many of the children would not willingly swallow the bitter and foul tasting pills. Some of the ‘defiant’ and ‘non-compliant’ children were then taken away to have surgery and had tubes put in their stomachs so that they would still receive the medication. Liam interviewed one of the foster parents about what was going on:

I asked Mona how the children at ICC tolerate so many medications. She said a lot of them don’t. “The ones that can’t are drugged through a tube,” she said.

“There’s a tube down their throat?” I asked.

“No” she answered, matter-of-factly, “they take them in for surgery.”

“A surgeon puts a hole in them? Where?”

In their stomachs,” she said. “If a child refuses drugs too many times, they take them away for the operation. I’ve seen it happen to children who refuse the medication.”

Mona, who knew that the medications were making her foster kids worse, decided to stop them and started instead, taking the children to a naturopath, where they both became a lot stronger and healthier. You’d think that this would please the doctors — to see that their health was improving — but in the case of this drug trial, it most certainly did not. After Mona questioned if these drugs were safe, the Doctors took the children back from Mona, started them on the medications again, where poor health ensued.

Because of the drug’s toxic effects, many other children got incredibly ill quickly and one boy, named Amir, whom Liam got to know, eventually died. Liam witnessed other children dying during his investigation, too.

Those close to Liam say that he never quite recovered from seeing this kind of cruelty dished out to children such as Amir.  Perhaps this is one of the reasons why Liam fought hard to wake people up to what often goes on in the world when pharmaceutical companies and corrupt governments are involved.

Liam’s brilliant investigative work led to other news outlets such as NBC reporting the story and the BBC made a documentary called Guinea Pig Kids, which I highly recommend you watch. You can also listen to an interview Liam did about his research into the trials at Incarnation Children’s Centre. His articles on the ICC drug trials led to the Associated Press taking the story nationally, where they found it going on in at least seven other US states.

HIV drugs are now vastly different today, and ironically, much less toxic.

Back then, Liam was onto something. He was right to suspect that the drugs were dangerous and causing great harm to those poor children. Liam behaved like true investigative journalists should behave. You investigate something, find out the proven facts – and no matter what you go up against – you expose it.

It’s now a fact that those HIV drugs were far too toxic.

Liam then became very vocal about the dangers of HIV drugs, and also encouraged people to start questioning whether the HIV tests were actually accurate, or if they could give false positives. He became a magnet for attacks from those in the powerful and highly profitable medical industry, but this did not deter him; he never backed down, and has since spoken in many HIV documentaries, such as House Of Numbers.

Liam’s written work was brilliant (which you can see on his website), and his analyses and hard hitting investigative style were second to none. He was also an excellent speaker and debater. You had to be brave, and truly know your stuff, to go against the powerful industries that Liam threatened.

Investigative journalist Celia Farber had this to say about Liam’s work: “The way Liam channelled the whole ‘story,’ and everybody in it, and all the angles of the trap, all the countless attacks, and all the ways in which they have blocked all the exits–was powerful and original.”

Liam wrote the thought-provoking book Official Stories, which took 11 years to research, that exposed controversial topics such as 9/11, vaccination, JFK, Polio, HPV, HIV, the big bang theory, Shakespeare, Darwinism, and and lots more.

He had been interviewed many times, and also co-hosted on the Robert Scott Bell radio show who had this to say about Liam’s work, ”Liam was a consummate teacher, he taught often by questioning, by throwing things back at you, which, at times could be very uncomfortable and force you to confront your own beliefs about the world, and how we got here, and I certainly appreciated it. I can’t say that there weren’t times that I felt uncomfortable on the air when he questioned the things that he brought. I value learning and I feel that life is that’

Liam also wrote this truly excellent piece on vaccinations for the Thinking Mom’s Revolution website.

One of the most powerful spoken pieces I personally think he did, which shows his truly brilliant mind at its best and how he puts his deep thoughts into words, is this one — “Killing Mothers in America – Vaccination” — which I urge you to watch.

Liam’s most recent passion was inspiring people to take a look into peak oil, for which he made this excellent video. He asked, are we running out, and if so, what should we do?

What Happened to Liam Is a Warning to Us: Too Much Dentistry Can Cause Irreversible Harm

Liam deeply cared about people, and did not like to think of humans unnecessarily suffering. So he would want you to know what happened to him — something that ultimately ended his life — and to urge you to be very careful about what dental treatment you put yourself through, especially if you are one of the many ‘hypersensitive people’ out there in the world. Being hypersensitive means your nervous system is likely to be very poor and if you do any treatments that are stressful, either from certain medications and/or procedures, it could put your health in further, more serious jeopardy.

In 2016, after realizing his teeth were in need of treatment, Liam visited a dentist who told him he needed many fillings. While he did not have any mercury fillings put in, the huge amount of drilling, the hours and hours laid stretched back in the dental chair, and the high amount of pain relief through injections that he received, ended up causing Liam irreparable nerve pain, where no treatment, no drug, nothing, could make the pain — and the extreme tinnitus — go away. Liam suffered greatly for a year, trying whatever he could to fix it, but nothing helped.

Something broke, something in my brain, my cerebellum, my hearing center. I’m not the only one in the world with this problem. Many people have “tinnitus.” A noise that they can hear if they really listen for it. But that’s not what I have when I lay down at night.

I have an electric sander working the inside of my skull; I have a hornets nest somewhere inside and behind my left ear and a small siren in my right. Night is most often much worse than day, and requires such a heaping handful of pills to try to convince the central nervous system to ignore it….

Those who have experienced lots of trauma often have very hypersensitive reactions to things, much more so than most people. Liam was one of those very hypersensitive people, and halfway through having this extensive treatment, he did wonder if what he was doing were the right thing. He expressed after — and would want you to take note of this — that he wished he had listened to what his intuition was telling him and stopped having the dental work.

Sadly, after realizing he couldn’t make the debilitating pain and loud noises go away, which were so loud that he couldn’t sleep without taking huge amounts of medications, Liam tragically took his own life a few short weeks ago. Those who knew him realized this was something he was planning, as he spoke about it often, but it has still left a huge mark in our hearts.

Liam wrote about what had happened to him in his final blog post, “Dear Friends,” which he requested to be published after he passed away, which was 6 April, in Riverside, California.

Liam was not only a brilliant journalist, one whose ethics always came before profit, but also an exceptionally gifted human being who cared deeply about what was going wrong in the world. He tried to fix as much of these wrongs as he could, and his work did make a difference.

Liam, and all he had to offer us, will be greatly missed, but as with most talented people who leave this world far too soon, he — and his work — will live on.

Please share this post with your friends.

“Be well, love each other, be kind, farm, garden, watch the horizon, never stop learning, and remember, the truth won’t set you free. We’re not here to be free; we’re here to work, to struggle, to love, to fight, to surrender, to fight again, to laugh, cry, and again, and always… and you can never say it enough or live it enough: to love and keep your heart full of the lives of others.”

Dr Byram Bridle Speaks For 100 Colleagues Afraid To Share Science About COVID Vaccine Concerns

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Dr Byram Bridle and two other physicians spoke at a news conference on Parliament Hill about their experience being censored or harassed as a result of sharing their medical opinions during the COVID-19 pandemic.

  • Reflect On:

    Do we as citizens truly want our scientists and physicians to be silenced and censored?

Before you begin...

Why are scientists and experts in this field scared to share concerning science regarding COVID vaccines? Just ask Byram Bridle, a viral immunologist from the University of Guelph who recently released a detailed, in-depth report regarding safety concerns about the COVID vaccines. The report was released to act as a guide for parents when it comes to deciding whether or not their child should be vaccinated against COVID-19. Bridle published the paper on behalf of one hundred other scientists and doctors who part of the Canadian COVID Care Alliance, but who are afraid to ‘come out’ publicly and share their concerns.

Bridle has stated about the Alliance,

In fact the reason that we (Canadian COVID Care Alliance) exist is sad. We exist because we’re like minded in the sense that we all want to be able to speak openly and freely about the scientist and medicine underpinning COVID-19, and we don’t feel safe to do it  anywhere else other than within our own private group, where we feel safe.

Below is our detailed report on the news conference held on Parliament Hill on June 17th, 2021. It was organized by Canadian MP Derek Sloan who has received hundreds of concerned communications from Canadian citizens about the censorship of scientists. Bridle and two other physicians spoke at the conference.

A recent article published in the British Medical Journal by journalist Laurie Clarke has highlighted the fact that Facebook has already removed at least 16 million pieces of content from its platform and added warnings to approximately 167 million others. YouTube has removed nearly 1 million videos related to, according to them, “dangerous or misleading covid-19 medical information.”

The more important questions to ask are: who is deciding what’s misleading? Who decides what’s false?

Some of the most renowned scientists and expert in this field have been subjected to this “fact-checking,” and they’ve been outspoken about how much of this fact-checking is flat out censorship. You decide.

To note: HealthFeedback.org, a fact checker, has attempted to refute some of Bridle’s claims. You can read more about them here.

Study Finds Many Uninfected Adults Still Have Strong Pre-Existing Antibody Protection Against COVID

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    A study published in March 2021 suggests that the majority of healthy adults in British Columbia, Canada, have immunity from COVID-19 despite the fact that some of them have never been infected with it.

  • Reflect On:

    Why has the power of naturally acquired immunity not been recognized and focused on more deeply? Why is the only focus on vaccination?

Take a moment and breathe. Place your hand over your chest area, near your heart. Breathe slowly into the area for about a minute, focusing on a sense of ease entering your mind and body. Click here to learn why we suggest this.

A study published in March 2021 suggested that  the majority of healthy Adults in British Columbia have evidence of pre-existing or naturally acquired immunity to COVID-19.  They found this to be the case even in individuals who haven’t been infected, and could be explained by the fact that coronaviruses that already circle the globe, prior to COVID-19, may provide protection from the novel virus.  They explain,

There are 4 circulating coronaviruses predating COVID-19 that cause up to 30% of seasonal upper respiratory tract infections (8). The spike proteins of β-coronaviruses HKU1 and OC43 exhibit approximately 40% sequence similarity, whereas the α-coronaviruses NL63 and 229E exhibit approximately 30% structural similarity with SARS-CoV-2 (9). The common occurrence of circulating coronaviruses year after year and their structural similarity with SARS-CoV-2 raises the possibility that the former may stimulate cross-reactive responses toward SARS-CoV-2 and that this heterotopic immunity may impact clinical susceptibility to COVID-19 and/or modulate responses to the SARS-CoV-2 vaccine (10, 11)….In conclusion, this study reveals common preexisting, broadly reactive SARS-CoV-2 antibodies in uninfected adults. These findings warrant larger studies to understand how these antibodies affect the severity of COVID-19, as well as the quality and longevity of responses to SARS-CoV-2 vaccines.

We are living in a world where anything “natural” seems to be shunned by a large portion of the medical community, and defined as “pseudoscientific”, when in fact, research suggests the opposite.

Natural immunity is quite robust. Dr. Suneel Dhang, an internal medical physician in the United States explains,

I’m not aware of any vaccine out there which will ever give you more immunity than if you’re naturally recovered from the illness itself…If you’ve naturally recovered from it, my understanding as a doctor level scientist is that those antibodies will always be better than a vaccine, and if you know any differently, please let me know.

A number of studies have now been published demonstrating that infection from COVID will provide a person with long lasting antibodies. Several studies have demonstrated that individuals with prior infection not only have these antibodies, but that they also developed robust levels of B cells and T cells (necessary for fighting off the virus) and these cells may persist in the body for a very long time. How long? It could be decades, or even a lifetime.

Individuals with infection from SARS, for example, still have a robust level of antibodies nearly two decades later. Research has also found that even a mild COVID infection can provide very strong protection that could last a lifetime.

Last fall there were reports that antibodies wane quickly after infection with the virus that causes COVID-19, and mainstream media interpreted that to mean that immunity was not long-lived. But that’s a misrepresentation of the data. It’s normal for antibody levels to go down after acute infection, but they don’t go down to zero; they plateau. Here, we found antibody-producing cells in people 11 months after first symptoms. These cells will live and produce antibodies for the rest of people’s lives. That’s strong evidence for long-lasting immunity. –  Ali Ellebedy, PhD, associate professor of pathology & immunology, of medicine and micro-biology. (source)

This science and research completely opposes what we were hearing early on in the pandemic, that prior infection, and infection from other coronaviruses may only provide protection for a few months or even a couple of years. It turns out that it’s probably a lot longer.

When infected with SARS-CoV-2, most people clear this virus from their body by mounting a robust, long-lasting immune response that targets multiple components of the virus1. These people will be protected from re-infection with the same variant of SARS-CoV-2 and, due to the breadth of a natural immune response, will also likely have some degree of protection against emerging new variants of SARS-CoV-2. Indeed, most people who have naturally acquired immunity should not be at risk of developing severe disease. – Dr. Byram Bridle, Viral Immunologist, University of Guelph. (source)

How does this compare to vaccine induced immunity? We don’t know as there is not enough data to say yet.

Dr. Ozlem Tureci, co-founder and CMO of BioNTech, the company that developed a COVID vaccine with Pfizer told CNBC that people will likely need a third shot of its two-dose COVID-19 vaccine. She also believes people will need one every year. Judging by this belief, vaccine induced immunity will continually wane and those who choose to go the vaccine route may have to continue with inoculations.

The scientific consensus of the number of people infected around the world is well over what testing has claimed. Currently, we’re nearly at 200,000,000 cases, but that number is most likely well over a billion globally. This is why the survival rate for healthy people under the age of 60 is nearly one hundred percent.

These infection numbers are important because it represents a globe closing in on herd immunity. My question is, what effect does the vaccine have on those who have already had an infection? What does this do to natural protection one gets from infection?

Another important question to ask is, why has the topic of naturally acquired immunity been given absolutely zero attention within the mainstream? Why are they pushing the idea that we can’t go back to completely normal until every single person has had a vaccine if that doesn’t match what the science is saying?

Pfizer & Moderna Fail To Respond To British Medical Journal About COVID Vaccine Safety Concerns

Avatar

Published

By

CE Staff Writer 5 minute read

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Associate Editor of the British Medical Journal Dr. Peter Doshi explains that both Pfizer and Moderna did not respond to questions about why bio-distribution studies were not conducted prior to the rollout of their COVID vaccines.

  • Reflect On:

    Are these vaccines actually safe and effective? Why are so many people within the mainstream completely unaware of certain safety concerns and issues being raised with COVID vaccines?

Before you begin...

Coherent icon

Take a moment and breathe. Place your hand over your chest area, near your heart. Breathe slowly into the area for about a minute, focusing on a sense of ease entering your mind and body. Click here to learn why we suggest this.

An article published in the British Medical Journal by Dr. Peter Doshi titled “Covid-19 Vaccines: In The Rush for Regulatory Approval, Do We Need More Data?” raises concerns regarding COVID-19 vaccine rollout, and one of them is the bio-distribution of the vaccine.  This refers to the examination and study of where the vaccine and its ingredients go once injected into the body. Having sped up the approval process of these vaccines, it has been claimed that no compromises in the process of examining their safety were made. But the fact that no study for tracking the distribution of the vaccine within the human body was conducted for any of the authorized vaccines, we cannot say this is true.

Dr. Doshi points out that such bio-distribution studies are a standard practice of drug safety testing but “are usually not required for vaccines.” This in itself is concerning. Research regarding the bio-distribution of aluminum containing vaccines, for example, have raised concerns about injected aluminum crossing the blood brain barrier and being distributed throughout the body where it can be detected years after injection. This is important, because vaccines are a different method of delivery than say, ingested aluminum, which the body does a great job of getting rid of through digestion.

Bio-distribution studies weren’t performed for COVID vaccines because data from past studies performed with related, and “mostly unapproved compounds that use the same platform technology” were used to bypass them.

Dr. Doshi points out that,

“Pfizer and Moderna did not respond to The BMJ’s questions regarding why no biodistribution studies were conducted on their novel mRNA products, and none of the companies, nor the FDA, would say whether new biodistribution studies will be required prior to licensure.”

In his article, Dr. Doshi also references a report that Pfizer provided to the Japanese government. In the report there is a table containing lipid nanoparticle bio-distribution data.

This table shows where their surrogate “vaccine” (i.e. represented in the laboratory test by little bubbles of surrogate fat containing an analytical detection marker) ended up in the body of immunized rats, used in the laboratory as surrogates for humans…I would like to highlight some observations. First…a lot of the surrogate vaccine dose remained at the injection site, as one would expect. Remarkably, however, most of the vaccine dose had gone elsewhere….50-75% of the vaccine dose failed to remain at the site of injection. The big question is, where did it go? Looking at the other tissues shows some of the paces it went and accumulated…The surrogate vaccine was circulating in the blood. There is also evidence that a substantial amount of the vaccine went to places like the spleen, liver, ovaries, adrenal glands, and bone marrow. The vaccine went to other places as well, such as testes, lungs, intestines, kidneys, thyroid glands, pituitary gland, uterus, etc. The surrogate vaccine tested in a laboratory setting was widely distributed throughout the laboratory animal’s bodies. – Dr. Byram W. Bridle, Viral Immunologist, University of Guelph.

The above quote comes from a detailed report Bridle recently released for COVID-19: “A Vaccine Guide For Parents.” One of his main concerns is that the spike protein that our cells manufacture after injection enter into the bloodstream, and that the spike protein itself isn’t harmless. He goes into a detailed explanation in the report cited above.

According to him,

This information is incredibly important because recent data have come to light that the spike protein is “biologically active.” This means that the spike protein is not just an antigen that is recognized the immune system as being foreign. It means that the spike protein, itself, can interact with receptors throughout the body, called ACE2 receptors, potentially causing undesirable effects such as damage to the heart and cardiovascular system, blood clots, bleeding, and neurological effects.

Again, the report is quite detailed and you can access it here if you’re interested. Bridle is not the only one raising these concerns. He, like many other professionals out there, have been subjected to “fact checking” via Facebook third party fact checkers. Here’s a response from PolitiFact regarding Bridle’s claims and the science he points to.

PolitiFact claims that there is no evidence that the spike protein is ‘a toxin.’ They cite opinions from the CDC and other researchers claiming that no evidence has yet emerged stating the spike protein is dangerous. But they are not actually addressing the cited science Bridle is pointing to, they are merely saying everything he is saying is wrong.

This type of baseless ‘fact checking’ has been a problem during the entire pandemic. A recent article published in the British Medical Journal by journalist Laurie Clarke has highlighted the fact that Facebook has already removed at least 16 million pieces of content from its platform and added warnings to approximately 167 million others. YouTube has removed nearly 1 million videos related to, according to them, “dangerous or misleading covid-19 medical information.”

The article explains why fact-checking scientists has been nothing short of censorship of both evidence and educated opinion. This has happened numerous times throughout the pandemic with multiple renowned scientists. I recently wrote about a couple of examples here, and here, if you’d like to dig deeper.

It’s telling when science, evidence and opinions of experts are censored and subjected to ridicule throughout a global event like this. One has to ask: what is the motivation? Does a clear headed society seek to censor?

Any narrative that questions what we are receiving from government, health authorities, and mainstream media have been completely unacknowledged.  Effectively dividing the public on important issues.

Once again, this begs the question, why? You would think it a time like this discussion and evidence would be shared openly and transparently, instead, we’ve seen the exact opposite.
