If you have been paying attention to recent headlines here in the US, you will notice that it is time once again for the measles magic show. In other words, it is time for virologists to pull the measles “virus” out of their hats so that it can rear its head in order to frighten the ignorant into allowing toxic injections into themselves and their children. While measles cases are said to occur in the US every year, the alarm bells rung by the CDC and within the mainstream media happens every so often when there needs to be a clamp down on anti-vaccine messaging as well as a push to increase vaccination rates. Remember the scary headlines alerting the people to a measles outbreak in Disneyland in 2014? It was the perfect set-up to strike down nonmedical vaccine exemptions that were increasing in California and elsewhere. The media focused on a “spread” through the unvaccinated population and highlighted vaccine hesitancy as a primary driver of the outbreak. This led to a “positive” outlook and support for vaccination.
Revisiting the 2014-15 Disneyland measles outbreak and its influence on pediatric vaccinations
“The outbreak capped a year with the highest number of measles cases reported in two decades and came amidst increasing trends in nonmedical vaccine exemptions in California and elsewhere. Because of its sensational story line and spread among unvaccinated populations, the outbreak received a high level of media coverage that focused on vaccine hesitancy as a primary driver of the outbreak. This media coverage and the ostensible public support for vaccines that followed led some to hypothesize that the outbreak might have a “Disneyland effect,” or a positive influence on the uptake of pediatric measles vaccine.”
However, the Disneyland Measles Massacre wasn’t even the “main” measles “outbreak” in 2014. That distinction belongs to the Amish in Ohio where an “outbreak” was blamed on an Amish missionary who traveled to the Philippines. In the end, there were 382 Amish said to be “infected” with the measles “virus.” Not a single person died. Regardless, the missionary, who was originally diagnosed with dengue, was given the blame for being unvaccinated and bringing the measles “virus” back to spread amongst the unvaccinated. While this “outbreak” helped to clamp down on anti-vaccination sentiment riled up by Jenny McCarthy that year, it was the perfect vehicle to convince the masses that it is unvaccinated travelers bringing back diseases in from other countries. This is a theme that the CDC has utilized time and time again:
How an Amish missionary caused 2014’s massive measles outbreak
“Last year was terrible for measles in the United States: there were 644 cases — the highest annual caseload in two decades. Granola-crunching Californians, wealthy Oregonians, and Jenny McCarthy anti-vaccine acolytes have taken much of the blame for this spike. The Washington Post even pointed to Orange County — the location of the current Disneyland outbreak — as “Ground Zero in our current epidemic of anti-vaccine hysteria.”
But that’s wrong. The real story behind the 2014 outbreak isn’t on the West Coast. It’s in Ohio Amish country, where a missionary returning from the Philippines turned an otherwise unremarkable year for this virus into one of the worst in recent history.”
“The outbreak that Fletcher spent months working to contain ultimately infected 382 Amish Ohioans by the time it was declared over in August of last year. Nobody died, but nine wound up in the hospital with more serious symptoms.”
“But in the first half of 2014 alone, there were 288 cases. And nearly all of them, the CDC researchers wrote in findings published last June, stemmed from Americans traveling abroad and returning with the disease.
“Of the 288 cases, 280 (97 percent) were associated with importations from at least 18 countries,” they wrote. Many of these travelers were coming back from the Philippines, which has been dealing with a massive outbreak since fall 2013.
“What we’ve seen — since the epidemic of measles was interrupted in 2000 — is that we are continually getting measles coming in from overseas,” says Jane Seward, deputy director of the viral diseases division at the CDC. “More often than not, it’s US residents who go overseas for a trip — to say, Europe, where they don’t think they need to be vaccinated. They bring measles back.”
“In the Ohio case, “patient zero” had traveled to the Philippines on a missionary trip. (In case you were wondering, he took a plane. Miller explained, “Some Amish fly. Some don’t.”) At the time, the Philippines happened to be facing a massive measles outbreak, with tens of thousands of cases.
When he returned to Ohio, and fell ill, a doctor misdiagnosed him with Dengue fever, so he continued to pass his disease along to friends and neighbors, many of whom had refused the vaccine out of those concerns over adverse effects.
Fletcher describes it as a “perfect storm:” an unimmunized traveler going to a place with an outbreak and bringing an infectious disease back to an unprotected community.”
The scare tactics worked to convince some within the notoriously anti-vaccination Amish community to get at least one dose of the MMR vaccine:
Vaccination of Amish limited 2014 Ohio measles outbreak
“In response to the outbreak, which occurred between March 24 and July 23, 2014, some 10,644 members in a community of 32,630 Amish in the Ohio settlement received at least one dose of the MMR vaccine, with 1,585 getting two doses.”
In 2017, there was a growing concern that the Somali community in Minnesota were being influenced by anti-vaccine information. The child vaccination rates for measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) had plummeted from 92% in 2004 to 42% in 2014 amid fears that Somali children have unusually high rates of autism. Thus, a measles “outbreak” was declared that suspiciously affected primarily unvaccinated Somali children.
“In 2017, 75 measles cases were reported as a result of an outbreak that began in Hennepin County involving the Somali community. This was the largest measles outbreak experienced since 1990, and the second major measles outbreak to affect the Minnesota Somali community in 6 years.”
Fortunately for the fear promoters, the scare tactics worked again and the vaccination push increased rates amongst the Somali American children from 30 a week in March to 500 in May.
“But the measles outbreak was shifting perceptions at last, she said. Weekly MMR vaccination rates among Somali American children have climbed from 30 or 40 a week in March to about 500 a week in May.”
In 2019, there was a measles “outbreak” in New York City said to have started due to an unvaccinated child who returned home from Israel with measles symptoms. The Orthodox Jewish Community was singled out for their lack of a belief in vaccination as well as their concerns over the dangers of the toxic injections. Thus, a targeted vaccination promotion campaign ensued to combat this growing awareness.
Consequences of Undervaccination — Measles Outbreak, New York City, 2018–2019
“During focus groups conducted by the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene after a mumps outbreak in 2009–201023 in this same community, mothers expressed concern about vaccines and autism, vaccine safety, and whether children are receiving too many vaccines too early in life. Antivaccination sentiments were deepened when an organization targeted this community with misleading materials regarding the risk of vaccination.19 To address these concerns, the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene reprinted and mailed two booklets that provided accurate information about vaccines to 29,000 households in Borough Park and Williamsburg, and a campaign was launched to combat vaccine myths in affected communities.24,25”
The threat of a measles “outbreak” and the vaccination propaganda efforts led to an increase in the percentage of children in Williamsburg who received at least one dose of MMR vaccine, rising from 79.5% to 91.1% among children 12 to 59 months of age. Thus, the scare tactics were once again successful in nudging the sheep in the direction that the pharmaceutical overlords wanted them steered in.
Even though the US officially declared that measles was successfully eliminated (considered an absence of continuous disease transmission for greater than 12 months) from the country in the year 2000, pocket outbreaks tend to conveniently pop up just when there is a growing chorus of anti-vaccination sentiment emerging as well as noticeable decreases in overall vaccination coverage. This is the case now as, due to the declining vaccination rates brought about by the “pandemic” and the distrust in the mRNA vaccines, the “threat” of new measle “outbreaks” in the unvaccinated is being used to try and instill the necessary fear to drive vaccination rates up to where the pharmaceutical interests want them to be. However, with measles eliminated from the US over 20 years ago, how are they able to drum up these measles “outbreaks” right at the most opportune moments in order to propagandize the populace? How are they able to make it look as if the unvaccinated are the main contributors of these “outbreaks?” Let’s have a look at a few of the tricks that they have up their sleeves and see if we can take the mysticism out of their magic.
