Alternative Media Mourns The Tragic Loss Of One Of Its Best Investigative Journalists: Liam Scheff

Published

on

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).

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.”

Vancouver Council Votes Against Mandatory Mask Mandate: They’re Not Required

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Vancouver, Canada will not have a required mask policy in civic facilities, and instead will simply recommend that people wear them.

  • Reflect On:

    Should governments recommend what they feel we should do and present the science instead of forcing certain measures on the population that many people and health professionals clearly disagree with?

What Happened: The city of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada will not mandate masks inside city buildings and will “strongly encourage” people to wear them instead. This is a bold move as many cities across the globe have mandatory mask measures in place.

The proposal by Counc. Sarah Kirby-Yung, which would have required masks inside city buildings, was opposed by more than a dozen speakers who pleaded with the city council to vote against it.

“Please consider our forefathers fought for our freedom, and if we release that choice, it’s the first step towards a dictatorship,” said one speaker according to City News. “Masks are used as weapons and they have certainly been used as weapons against me and others to silence and marginalize us and it’s not fair.”

According to Coun. Christine Boyle, public health experts encourage wearing masks, but a mandatory policy is not needed.

Positive Association Found Amongst COVID Deaths & Flu Shot Rates Worldwide In Elderly

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    A recently published paper has found a positive association between COVID-19 deaths and influenza vaccination rates in elderly people worldwide.

  • Reflect On:

    Why does vaccine hesitancy continue to grow worldwide? What's going on? What information/factors are contributing to this hesitancy?

What Happened: A recently published study in PeerJ  by Christian Wehenkel, a Professor at Universidad Juárez del Estado de Durango in Mexico, has found a positive association between COVID-19 deaths and influenza vaccination rates in elderly people worldwide.

According to the study, “The results showed a positive association between COVID-19 deaths and IVR (influenza vaccination rate) of people ≥65 years-old. There is a significant increase in COVID-19 deaths from eastern to western regions in the world. Further exploration is needed to explain these findings, and additional work on this line of research may lead to prevention of deaths associated with COVID-19.”

To determine this association, data sets from 39 countries with more than half a million people were analyzed.

The study was published on October 1st, and two weeks later a note from the publisher appeared atop the paper emphasizing that correlation does not equal causation, and that this paper “should not be taken to suggest that receiving the influenza vaccination results in an increased risk of death for an individual with COVID-19 as there may be confounding factors at play.”

The paper provides evidence from others which have recently been published that ponder if the flu shot could increase ones chance of contracting and dying from COVID-19.

For example, this study published in April of 2020, reported a negative correlation between influenza vaccination rates (IVRs) and COVID-19 related mortality and morbidity. Marín-Hernández, Schwartz & Nixon (2020) also showed epidemiological evidence of an association between higher influenza vaccine uptake by elderly people and lower percentage of COVID-19 deaths in Italy, which directly contradicts the author’s own findings and suggests that the flu shot may help prevent COVID-19 related deaths.

He goes on to mention another study:

In a study analyzing 92,664 clinically and molecularly confirmed COVID-19 cases in Brazil, Fink et al. (2020) reported that patients who received a recent flu vaccine experienced on average 17% lower odds of death. Moreover, Pawlowski et al. (2020) analyzed the immunization records of 137,037 individuals who tested positive in a SARS-CoV-2 PCR. They found that polio, Hemophilus influenzae type-B, measles-mumps-rubella, varicella, pneumococcal conjugate (PCV13), geriatric flu, and hepatitis A/hepatitis B (HepA-HepB) vaccines, which had been administered in the past 1, 2, and 5 years, were associated with decreased SARS-CoV-2 infection rates.

So, its important to mention that correlations between the flu vaccine have also found that it may decrease ones chance of deaths from COVID-19.

But are there studies that have shown an increased chance of death or contracting other respiratory viruses as a result of getting the flu shot? Yes.

That’s also discussed in the paper. For example, he mentions a paper published in 2018:

In a study with 6,120 subjects, Wolff (2020) reported that influenza vaccination was significantly associated with a higher risk of some other respiratory diseases, due to virus interference. In a specific examination of non-influenza viruses, the odds of coronavirus infection (but not the COVID-19 virus) in vaccinated individuals were significantly higher, when compared to unvaccinated individuals (odds ratio = 1.36).

The study above found the flu shot to increase the risk of other coronaviruses among those who had been vaccinated for influenza by 36 percent. The study was conducted prior to COVID-19, so it’s not included and only applies to pre-existing coronaviruses. The study also found an even higher chance of contracting human metapneumovirus amongst those who had received the flu shot.

Below are some more studies regarding the flu shot and viral infections that hint to the same idea.

  • 2018 CDC study (Rikin et al 2018) found that flu shots increase the risk of non-flu acute respiratory illnesses (ARIs), including coronavirus, in children.
  • A 2011 Australian study (Kelly et al 2011) found that flu shots doubled the risk for non-flu viral lung infections.
  • 2012 Hong Kong study (Cowling et al 2012) found that flu shots increase the risk for non-flu respiratory infections by 4.4 times.
  • 2017 study (Mawson et al 2017) found vaccinated children were 5.9 times more likely to suffer pneumonia than their unvaccinated peers.

Why This Is Important: We live in an age where vaccinations are heavily marketed. We’ve seen this with the flu shot time and time again and we are also living in an age where a push for more mandated vaccines seems to be growing.

Dr. Peter Doshi is an associate editor at The BMJ (British Medical Journal) and also an assistant professor of pharmaceutical health services research at the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy. He published a paper in The BMJ titled “Influenza: Marketing Vaccines By Marketing Disease.”  In it,  he points out that the CDC pledges “to base all public health decisions on the highest quality of scientific data, openly and objectively derived,” and how this isn’t the case when it comes to the flu vaccine and its marketing. He stresses that “the vaccine may be less beneficial and less safe than has been claimed, and that “the threat of influenza seems to be overstated.”

This is a touchy subject that dives into medical ethics and the connections that big pharmaceutical companies have with our federal health regulatory agencies and health associations. Vaccines are a multi billion dollar industry.

At a recent World Health Organization conference on vaccine safety, it was expressed that vaccine hesitancy is growing at quite a fast pace, especially among doctors who are now becoming hesitant to recommend certain vaccines on the schedule. You can read more about that and find links to the conference here.

We have to ask ourselves, why is this happening? Is it because people and professionals are becoming aware of certain information that warrants the freedom of choice? Should freedom of choice with regards to what we put in our body always remain? Are we really protecting the “herd” by taking these actions?

In a 2014 analysis in the Oregon Law Review by New York University (NYU) legal scholars Mary Holland and Chase E. Zachary (who also has a Princeton-conferred doctorate in chemistry), the authors show that 60 years of compulsory vaccine policies “have not attained herd immunity for any childhood disease.” It is time, they suggest, to cast aside coercion in favor of voluntary choice.

When it comes to the flu shot, I put more information and science as to why so many people seem to refuse it, in this article if interested.

The University of California is currently being sued for mandating the flu shot for all staff, faculty and students. A judge has prevented them from doing so as a result until a decision has been made. You can read more about that here.

In South Korea, 48 people have now died after receiving the flu shot this season causing a lot of controversy. You can read more about that here.

The Takeaway: There are many concerns with vaccines, and vaccine injury is one of them. The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act has paid more than $4 billion to families of vaccine injured children. A 2010 HHS pilot study by the Federal Agency for Health Care Research (AHCR) found that 1 in every 39 vaccines causes injury, a shocking comparison to the claims from the CDC of 1 in every million.

Should these statistics alone warrant the freedom of choice? Should the government have the ability to force us into measures, or would it simply be better for them to present the science, make recommendations and urge people to follow them? When the citizenry is forced and coerced into certain actions, sometimes under the guise of good-will, there always seems to be a tremendous amount of uproar and people who disagree. Why are these people silenced? Why are they censored? Why are they ridiculed? Why don’t independent health organizations receive the same voice and reach that government and state “owned” or organizations do? What’s going on here? Do we really live in a free, open and transparent world or are we simply subjected to massive amounts of perception manipulation?

When it come to the flu shot there is plenty of information on both sides of the coin that point to its effectiveness, and on the other hand there is information that points to the complete opposite. When something is not 100 percent clear, freedom of choice in all places should always remain, in my opinion.

Some South Korean Doctors & Politicians Call To Stop Flu Shots After 48 People Die

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    The number of South Koreans who have died after getting flu shots has risen to 48, but health authorities in South Korea have found no link between the vaccine and the deaths.

  • Reflect On:

    Is the flu shot as safe as it's marketed to be?

What Happened: It’s that time of year and flu shot programs are rolling out across the globe. The number of South Koreans who have died after getting the flu shot has now risen to 48 and some South Korean doctors and politicians have called to stop flu shots as a result, according to Reuters. The Korea Disease Control and Prevention Agency (KDCA) has decided not to stop the program, and that flu vaccines would continue to be given and will reduce the chance of having simultaneous epidemics in the era of COVID-19.

Health authorities in South Korea have explained that they’ve found no direct link between these deaths and the shots. KDCA Director Jeong Eun-kyung said, “After reviewing death cases so far, it is not the time to suspend a flu vaccination programme since vaccination is very crucial this year, considering…the COVID-19 outbreaks.”

According to Reuters, “Some initial autopsy results from the police and the National Forensic Service showed that 13 people died of cardiovascular, cerebrovascular and other disorders not caused by the vaccination.”

The South Korean government is hopeful to vaccinate approximately 30 million of the country’s 54 million people.

Concerns Some People Have With The Flu Shot: One concern many people seem to have is the worry of a severe adverse reaction.

Dr. Alvin Moss, MD and professor at the West Virginia University School of Medicine emphasizes in this video:

The flu vaccine happens to be the vaccine that causes the most injury in this country. The vaccine injury compensation program, 40 percent of all vaccinations in this country are flu shots, but 60 percent of all the compensations are for the flu vaccine. So a disproportionate number of  vaccine related injuries are the flu shot.

Moss is one of many who believe that the flu vaccine is not as effective as it’s been marketed to be. For example,  A study recently published in Global Advances In Health & Medicine titled “Ascorbate as Prophylaxis and Therapy for COVID-19—Update From Shanghai and U.S. Medical Institutions outlines the following:

Recently outlined A recent consensus statement from a group of renowned infectious disease clinicians observed that vaccine programs have proven ill-suited to the fast-changing viruses underlying these illnesses, with efficacy ranging from 19% to 54% in the past few years.

Dr. Peter Doshi is an associate editor at The BMJ (British Medical Journal)  published a paper in The BMJ titled “Influenza: Marketing Vaccines By Marketing Disease.”  In it,  he points out that the CDC pledges “to base all public health decisions on the highest quality of scientific data, openly and objectively derived,” and how this isn’t the case when it comes to the flu vaccine and its marketing. He stresses that “the vaccine may be less beneficial and less safe than has been claimed, and that “the threat of influenza seems to be overstated.”

These are just a few examples out of many claiming that the flu shot has not really been effective, opposing others that claim it is.  Mercury that’s still present in some flu shots also seems to be a concern.

The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act has paid more than $4 billion to families of vaccine injured children. A 2010 HHS pilot study by the Federal Agency for Health Care Research (AHCR) found that 1 in every 39 vaccines causes injury, a shocking comparison to the claims from the CDC of 1 in every million.

Professor Heidi Larson, a Professor of Anthropology and the Risk and Decision Scientist Director at the Vaccine Confidence Project stated at a World Health Organization (WHO) conference that more doctors are starting to be hesitant when it comes to recommending vaccines.

The other thing that’s a trend, and an issue, is not just confidence in providers but confidence of health care providers, we have a very wobbly health professional frontline that is starting to question vaccines and the safety of vaccines. That’s a huge problem, because to this day any study I’ve seen… still, the most trusted person on any study I’ve seen globally is the health care provider…

This is no secret, and actions against mandates are being taken. The University of California was recently sued for making the flu shot mandatory. That trial will begin soon, and you can read more about it here, and find information regarding the claim that the flu shot can help in the times of COVID-19.

The Takeaway: We are living in an age of extreme censorship of information, no matter how credible or how much evidence is provided, information that goes against the grain always seems to receive a harsh backlash from mainstream media as well as social media outlets. Why is there a digital fact checker patrolling the internet? Should people not have the right to examine information openly and freely and determine for themselves what is and what isn’t?

As far as vaccines are concerned, despite the fact that there are many safety issues the scientific community  is bringing up, a push for vaccine mandates continues and the idea that we are protecting other people is usually the narrative that’s pushed hard. Vaccine skepticism is growing at a fast pace among people of all professions, and people aren’t stupid. There’s a reason why more and more people are starting to question what we’ve been told for years, and those reasons should be acknowledged and openly discussed amongst people on both sides of the coin.
