Toddler Permanently Brain Damaged by a Mystery Combination Vaccination That Her Parent’s Did Not Consent To*

Toddler Permanently Brain Damaged by a Mystery Combination Vaccination That Her Parent’s Did Not Consent To*

Jodie Marchant (centre) with her parents. Jodie became permanently brain-damaged after receiving mystery vaccine-combination without informed consent.

By Christina England

On May 17, 1993, Mr. and Mrs. Marchant took their daughter, Jodie, to the doctor for her 14-month check-up. Jodie was fit and healthy and meeting all her milestones, so her parents agreed for her to be vaccinated with the MMR vaccination, a decision that will haunt them forever. Mr. Marchant explained to us what happened the moment that Jodie received her vaccination:

“Jodie let out a high-pitched scream and appeared to be in a state of shock. Her eyes became vacant as if in a trance and she appeared to lose interest in eating and refused all food and we had to resort to giving her milkshakes. Jodie did not recognize anyone for a long time. Note, in 1997, her then-GP was able to confirm that Jodie was okay prior to vaccination and this confirms the records were available when the GP INSPECTED THEM.

Jodie stopped movement and would sit on the sofa rocking with eyes rolling and stopped talking.”

It appears that instead of receiving the MMR vaccine, as agreed, Jodie received a mystery vaccination, because according to her medical records, she received a combination of the following vaccinations: diphtheria/tetanus (DT), polio, pertussis, and the MMR 11.

I say this because it states very clearly on her vaccination card that these were the vaccinations that were given on the day that Jodie was vaccinated.  However, despite the fact that all of these vaccinations were recorded, her parents have stated that Jodie only received one shot at the time she was vaccinated.

There was also a mention of the Hib vaccination being given, a vaccine against Haemophilus influenza type B.

Furthermore, her parents have stated, that when they entered the doctor’s surgery, they were shocked to discover that the vaccination had been prepared by their doctor in advance.

Doctors Found Guilty of Mixing Several Vaccines Together in One Syringe

If what her parents are saying is true and Jodie did only receive one shot on the day she was vaccinated, then we need to consider whether or not Jodie’s doctor decided to mix several vaccinations into one syringe without her parents’ knowledge or consent.

.

Whilst the majority of us would consider this to be not only unethical but also highly unlikely, remarkably, it is a possibility because, in 2013, the Globe and Mail reported that a paediatrician from Halifax was found guilty of doing the unthinkable.

They reported that:

Dr. William Vitale had a habit of mixing vaccines into a single syringe rather than administering them separately, and as many as 500 children will have to be re-vaccinated.

For example, at a year old, babies receive a four-in-one vaccine – measles, mumps, rubella, and varicella – along with two other vaccines to protect against meningococcal disease and pneumococcal disease. Dr. Vitale told investigators at the Nova Scotia College of Physicians and Surgeons that he mixed the three shots in one syringe to reduce the number of needles children would get.”

What is even more shocking is that this doctor is not alone in his actions. In 2016, the Guardian reported on an equally disturbing story:

“Regulators have suspended the license of a doctor in Chicago who allegedly gave patients modified vaccinations containing cat saliva and vodka.”

They stated:

“After hearing complaints from health care providers that children were getting unapproved oral versions of childhood shots from Dr. Ming Te Lin, investigators visited Lin’s practice.

They found a cluttered, unsterile office and ‘a box filled with vials and tubes that [Lin] was using to make his own vaccinations.’”

They continued:

“Lin told investigators he had been preparing alternative vaccinations for children for more than a decade, according to the order.

Despite his unapproved methods, Lin is accused of signing state forms certifying he had given paediatric patients their conventional shots. Charts showed the patients who received unapproved oral vaccines included a seven-day-old infant.”

In fact, reports such as these are not as rare as we might imagine. During a now-censored YouTube video, the developer of Merck’s vaccine program, Dr. Maurice Hilleman, was filmed openly admitting that whilst working for Merck, the polio vaccines had been deliberately contaminated with SV40, a cancer-causing monkey virus from 1953-1963.

Although the original clip was censored, other copies are still in existence.

Do We Actually Know What Our Doctors Are Vaccinating Us With?

In 2015, VacTruth reported on the story of Alisa Neathery, a mother who took her six-month-old unvaccinated baby, Bently, to the doctor to be examined for the first time. However, instead of treating Alisa with respect, the medical personnel emotionally blackmailed her into having her baby vaccinated with a lethal combination of 13 vaccines.

Alisa explained that:

“Prior to the shots being given, when the doctor was discussing the pros of getting vaccinated with me, he explained how he was from a village in Africa. That we were lucky in America to have the opportunity to receive vaccines because where he was from, the mothers had to have like 11 kids each since most would die off from disease because they were not as fortunate to receive vaccines like we are here in America. He really pushed them on me hard. He spent a lot of time convincing me to give Bently the vaccines, but when it was done, we never saw the doctor again.”

The report stated that:

Bently’s doctor decided to vaccinate this previously unvaccinated baby with a total of 13 vaccinations in one day, in what can only be described as a bid to catch up.

The vaccinations included:

  • Two doses of the DTaP – diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis (whooping cough) vaccine
  • Hib – Haemophilus influenza type B vaccine
  • IPV- inactivated polio vaccine
  • Pneumococcal vaccine
  • Three doses of oral rotavirus vaccine

VacTruth reported that:

“Bently was also given three other vaccinations, which appear to be unidentified on his vaccination card, plus the hepatitis B vaccine and oral polio vaccine.

Little Bently died in his mother’s arms just five days later.”

Jodie’s Parents Had Only Consented to the MMR Vaccine

Jodie is now 25 years of age; she has no language, is doubly incontinent, still drinks from a bottle and suffers from a variety of disabilities similar to autism. Her parents have received no apologies, no compensation and no help for their disabled daughter. They believe that their case hinges on the following facts:

  1. They did not give their consent for her to receive any vaccine other than the MMR.
  2. They did not have sufficient information on this vaccination to make an informed choice on whether or not they wanted their daughter vaccinated with anything other than the MMR, which, according to the Montgomery Ruling, they must receive in full.
  3. By vaccinating Jodie with multiple vaccinations without her parents’ consent or knowledge, her doctor committed an offense which was a breach of both Jodie’s and her parents’ human rights.

I have met this family and have received their paperwork and I found the reports to be full of inconsistencies.

For example, a report referenced as JGB01/JGB01/213223, dated May 6, 2016, stated:

As you can see, each one of these statements states something entirely different and these inconsistencies continued throughout the paperwork.

 

Although the report did ascertain that Jodie suffered from autism, the report then stated she was not eligible for compensation from the Vaccine Damage Payment Unit, because after reading the medical evidence, it was not accepted that Jodie had been damaged by the vaccination. However, Mr. Marchant believes that this is not the case and his views were reiterated by Dr. Warner. from Southampton, who stated:

Letter from Professor J Warner, Southampton

 

Jodie is one of the most disabled adults I have met and this family has been left penniless and alone to cope. This case is even more tragic when you see the photos and reports of Jodie before she was vaccinated. Jodie was a healthy normal little girl who before vaccination was meeting all of her milestones.

In fact, her general practitioner, Dr. Jennifer Greenland, stated this in a letter addressed to Dr. Andrew Wakefield and his team. The letter stated:

“Her diagnosis of autism was confirmed in May 1996 after a full assessment.”

Her words were repeated by Dr. Walker-Smith’s return letter, which stated:

“…then she stopped eating, started screaming and lost what words she had.”

Several Reports Stated that Jodie is Vaccine-Injured

In a draft report, titled Appendix A, Dr. Peter Fletcher, MB BS MSc Ph.D. FFPM, wrote the following statement:

Throughout his report, he makes it clear that, in his professional medical opinion, Jodie’s injuries were caused by the vaccinations that she had received.

Dr. Peter Fletcher, MB BS MSc Ph.D. FFPM wrote: “Jodie’s serious handicaps are causally related to vaccination.”

He continued his report by stating that in 2002, he was appointed as the Expert Medical Witness, by a firm of solicitors in an MMR litigation, and explained that the case involved approximately 1,200 vaccine-damaged children. However, the case was terminated by the Legal Services Commission (LSC) on the grounds that legal success for the claimants was unlikely.

Since then, he has witnessed literally hundreds of more cases and has been able to establish a clear clinical picture of seriously handicapped children. He explained that the list of injuries that he had witnessed was endless and he presented the list in full:

Provided by Dr. Peter Fletcher, MB BS MSc Ph.D. FFPM.

As you can see, this list is extremely extensive. Furthermore, Dr. Fletcher continued his report by stating that:

Statement by Dr. Peter Fletcher, MB BS MSc Ph.D. FFPM.

With this information in mind, it is difficult to understand why Jodie’s case was dismissed. Especially when you consider the fact that Jodie suffers nearly every one of the conditions that were listed.

Statement by Dr. Peter Fletcher, MB BS MSc Ph.D. FFPM.

In his summary, Dr. Fletcher stated:

“Evidence fully supports Jodie’s normal medical history prior to this administration of vaccines.”

What makes the whole situation even worse is the fact that Dr. Fletcher was not the only professional to submit a report stating that Jodie was vaccine-damaged. However, despite the overwhelming evidence presented to the Vaccine Damage Payment Unit (VDPU) and the fact that no consent was given for Jodie to receive multiple vaccinations, this family has been left alone to struggle.

Maybe the reason for this can be found in a letter written by the senior case manager for the Legal Services Commission, Mr. John Baker.

Mr. Baker wrote:

Written by Mr. Baker.

(Note: MPA is the abbreviation for Multi-People Action.)

To which, Mr. Miller replied with the following statement, in an email to Mr. Baker:

Written by Mr. Miller.

This is probably the single most damning statement written by any of these professionals because he went on to state the following information in a letter to Mr. Baker:

“Upon first considering our comprehensive letter of instruction, Dr. Geier confirmed that it may prove impossible to consider the combined effects of the alleged mixture of vaccines. There would be no documented study of how such a combination would react within a human body as it has never been accepted that it is appropriate to mix such vaccines together, such vaccines are already mixed by their manufacturers in a manner which is considered to be appropriate and safe for provision at the time. It is, therefore, clear that the original instruction of Dr. Geier has been unfulfilled as it seemed impossible to obtain appropriate evidence as to how such vaccines would have reacted together and reacted upon Jodie Marchant’s body.”

This was followed by another letter which stated:

Written by Mr. Miller.

Mr. Miller is absolutely spot-on with his account of this case because no consent was ever given for Jodie to receive a single syringe containing a mixture of several vaccines. Mr. Marchant stated:

“The lack of consent should have been the obvious route to take. If it had been taken by our Legal Reps our case would have finished years ago. To ignore our consent refusal is criminal and an indication of the limits doctors will go to obtain their bonuses.”

It is for these reasons that Mr. Marchant has decided to represent his daughter himself, with or without legal representation. He has told Health Impact News that he believes that it is about time that the doctor who vaccinated his daughter is held accountable for her actions.

Dr. Andrew Moulden: Every Vaccine Produces Harm

eBook – Available for immediate download

 

Canadian physician Dr. Andrew Moulden provided clear scientific evidence to prove that every dose of vaccine given to a child or an adult produces harm. The truth that he uncovered was rejected by the conventional medical system and the pharmaceutical industry. Nevertheless, his warning and his message to America remains as a solid legacy of the man who stood up against big pharma and their program to vaccinate every person on the Earth.

Dr. Moulden died unexpectedly in November of 2013 at age 49.

Because of the strong opposition from big pharma concerning Dr. Moulden’s research, we became concerned that the name of this brilliant researcher and his life’s work had nearly been deleted from the internet. His reputation was being disparaged, and his message of warning and hope was being distorted and buried without a tombstone. This book summarizes his teaching and is a must-read for everyone who wants to learn the “other-side” of the vaccine debate that the mainstream media routinely censors.

How to Safely Detox Mercury and Heavy Metals to Increase Energy*

How to Safely Detox Mercury and Heavy Metals to Increase Energy*

Within the last 30 years, heavy metal poisoning has been increasing significantly. One of the major causes of this is the increase of adding heavy metals to commercial products. Some of these commercial products are agrichemicals (i.e., pesticide, herbicide). These toxic chemicals are some of the major causes of heavy metal contamination in soil, crops, and other food sources throughout the world. Another major causes of heavy metal toxicity is dental amalgams (silver fillings).

What are Heavy Metals?

In general, heavy metals are elements that have metallic properties and are harmful to the body, even in small quantities. The scientific definition of heavy metal is a metal with a density level greater than 5 g/cm3. Examples of heavy metals are mercury (Hg), cadmium (Cd), arsenic (As), chromium (Cr), thallium (Tl), and lead (Pb).

Another metal that you should be wary of is aluminum, because it is one of the major causes of metal toxicity. In its pure form, this metal is very toxic to your body. Aluminum is not considered a heavy metal, but it does have heavy metal-like properties.

How Heavy Metals Harm Your Body and Symptoms of Heavy Metal Toxicity

Most heavy metals harm your body by destroying certain cells and weakening your body’s metabolism and neurotransmission process. This could lead to neurodegenerative diseases (i.e., Alzheimer’s) and other chronic health problems.

Heavy metals tend to bio-accumulate in the body and therefore the body has a hard time breaking them down into safe substances. Because of this, the amount of heavy metals in the body can increase to dangerous levels in a short amount of time.

Symptoms of heavy metal toxicity can range greatly. Some of the common symptoms are low energy, anxiety, depression, headaches, chronic pain, constipation, dizziness, and memory problems. Heavy metal toxicity is often not diagnose properly, because most people and doctors are not trained to detect symptoms of heavy metal poisoning.

How to Safely Detox Mercury and Heavy Metals

It is wise to detox harmful heavy metals on a regular basis, especially mercury because it is one of the most toxic neurotoxins on Earth. When detoxing heavy metals, it is best to do it in cycles. Doing this allows your body enough time to extract heavy metals that have bio-accumulated in your fatty tissues and organs, and release them into your bloodstream for excretion. Furthermore, it helps prevent major side effects due to having too much heavy metals in your bloodstream.

Before detoxing heavy metals, you should get a test done for heavy metal poisoning. One of the best tests available to the public is the Metals Hair Test or Hair Elements Test.

Another thing you should do before you start detoxing heavy metals from your body is to go on a proper supplementation program, so that you can supply your body with essential vitamins and minerals, such as magnesium, zinc, calcium, vitamin (B, C, and E), and essential fatty acids, and other essential nutrients. Without these nutrients, your body has a harder time detoxing heavy metals. Also, eat lots of organic plant foods.

Each heavy metal behaves differently in the body, so the method to remove it will vary. For example, when detoxing mercury, it is best to remove all dental amalgams (silver fillings) from your teeth before going on a mercury detox program. You should learn how to detox mercury for the reason that it is the most toxic heavy metal and it is one of the common causes of heavy metal poisoning.

Removing dental amalgams should be undertaken with the care from a medical professional in order to ensure that the process is done safely. Most dentists do not know how to do this, so you will need to find a dentist in your area who knows how to safely remove dental amalgams. A great website to search for dentists who know how to do this is IAOMT.org. If you want to learn more about mercury poisoning, visit MercuryPoisoned.com.

The Dangers of Dental Amalgam

If you want to increase your success rate of detoxing heavy metals and preventing heavy metal poisoning, you need to education yourself with the right knowledge. I recommend reading the book Amalgam Illness, Diagnosis and Treatment by Andrew Hall Cutler. This book is more concentrated on mercury poisoning, but it also has some great information about other heavy metals.

Another thing you may want to do to prevent heavy metal poisoning is to avoid vaccine shots. Many vaccines contain thimerosal, a mercury-based derivatives. The image below will show you evidence of this.

For ten tips to reduce your risk of heavy metal poisoning, read this informative article titled Ten Heavy Metal Toxicity Prevention Tips.

The Health Benefits of Detoxing Heavy Metals

After you detox heavy metals from your body, you should notice:

  • An increase in energy
  • An improvement in your thinking skills and memory
  • An improvement in your concentration
  • A decrease in body weight
  • Less muscle and joint pain
  • Less migraines and headaches
  • Less sleeping problems and mood swings
  • Less psychological problems
  • Better coordination skills
  • Best of all, you will feel ALIVE again!

Here are some great videos to help you learn more about mercury poisoning and amalgam fillings.

Human Trafficker Admits To Killing Over 400 Children in Video Confession*

Human Trafficker Admits To Killing Over 400 Children in Video Confession*

 

Slavery may be deemed a historical term in many societies at this point, but it’s certainly not a thing of the past. Human trafficking, for instance, produces hundreds of billions of dollars in profit by trapping millions of people in unfathomable situations around the world. Human traffickers resort to violence, threats, deception, debt bondage, and other forms of manipulation to force people to take part in commercial sex or other services against their consent.

According to the International Labour Organization, there are an estimated  20.9 million victims of human trafficking globally, with 68% of them trapped in forced labour, 26% being children, and 55% being women and girls. The organization also estimates that forced labour and human trafficking is a $150 billion industry worldwide.

It’s unlikely you’ll hear of a human trafficker coming forward about their crime, but recently, one has done just that, going on the record and confessing during a filmed interview that he sold thousands of children into sex slavery and killed hundreds who he wasn’t able to sell off.

Ross Kemp, a British investigative journalist, was able to get a hold of the child trafficker for an interview. Kemp is an award-winning journalist known for his raw documentary making that exposes situations many others would fear.

According to the child trafficker, he admits to losing count of just how many young girls he killed. However, he estimates that it’s “somewhere between 400 and 500.”

In the interview, it seems clear Kemp displays immense discomfort and uncontrollable emotional unease as he sits face-to-face with the man, who admits to essentially dehumanizing so many innocent children, even killing hundreds of them.

Of the interview, Kemp revealed he had to fight back tears, saying he was “shocked” and “horrified” by the serial killer’s words. He said,

“interviewing a guy who admits to killing 400 to 500 kids but doesn’t know exactly how many – that did make me cry.”

The trafficker, “Mr. Kahn,” hits Kemp with extreme confessions that would make even the most fearless journalist, never mind any bystander, squirm in their seat. Kahn revealed he had “trafficked three or four thousand” young girls, or perhaps even more. With such a revelation, Kemp goes on to ask the human trafficker if he sold girls as young as nine for sex. The man admitted to selling girls who are 12.

As for whether he ever returned children, Kahn said no. Rather, he simply killed them.

Kahn said, “If they try to run away, or if there’s any trouble selling them, they are killed and buried.”

Kahn even convinced young girls he would marry them.

At the time of the interview, Kahn had 75 traffickers working for him, and was currently being investigated for over 25 different offenses, though he has never been tried for any of his crimes. He had been trafficking for seven years.

“We go to poor communities, often Muslim or tribal, and look for real beauties,” Kahn said of what he looks for in a victim.

“The girls are auctioned, and go to the highest bidder.”

The full interview, below, may present some disturbing facts, but it’s the awareness that’s needed regarding the awful crimes.

Cherokee Nation Sues Drug Companies and Retailers for Illegal Prescribed Opioids in the Cherokee Nation*

Cherokee Nation Sues Drug Companies and Retailers for Illegal Prescribed Opioids in the Cherokee Nation*

Today, the Cherokee Nation filed a lawsuit against McKesson Corporation, Cardinal Health, Inc., AmerisourceBergen, CVS Health, Walgreens Boots Alliance, Inc., and Wal-Mart Stores, Inc., charging the companies with failing to prevent the flow of illegally prescribed opioids to men, women and children in the Cherokee Nation.

This lawsuit is the first of its kind filed in the United States, as it seeks to hold distributors and retailers responsible for perpetuating the opioid crisis in the 14 counties in northeast Oklahoma that comprise the Cherokee Nation. Experts expect other jurisdictions to file similar claims as communities grapple with the financial and social burdens of the opioid epidemic.

“Tribal nations have survived disease, removal from our homelands, termination and other adversities, and still we prospered. However, I fear the opioid epidemic is emerging as the next great challenge of our modern era,” said Cherokee Nation Principal Chief Bill John Baker.

“As we fight this epidemic in our hospitals, our schools and our Cherokee homes, we will also use our legal system to make sure the companies, who put profits over people while our society is crippled by this epidemic, are held responsible for their actions.”

Pharmacies and opioid distributers, under federal law, have a responsibility to alert regulators of suspicious orders and illegitimate prescriptions. Suspicious activities would include: when a distributor fills a single pharmacy’s orders that are suddenly thousands of pills above the average or are disproportionate to the size of the area’s population; patterns of employee theft; and pharmacy customers seeking opioids for nonmedical purposes. When suspicious orders are filled, highly dangerous controlled substances are diverted into the hands of unauthorized users and the illegal black market, fueling the opioid epidemic.

According to the DEA, over 2.75 billion milligrams of opioids were distributed in Oklahoma in 2015. An estimated 845 million milligrams were distributed in the 14 counties of the Cherokee Nation. That averages out to between 360 and 720 pills per year for every prescription opioid user in the Cherokee Nation. Based on CDC reports, deaths from opioid-related overdoses more than doubled within the Cherokee Nation between 2003 and 2014. For adults within the Cherokee Nation, overdose deaths now outnumber deaths due to car accidents.

“These companies must be held accountable for their gross negligence, which has fueled the opioid epidemic. We deserve better,” said Cherokee Nation Attorney General Todd Hembree.

“They enabled prescription opioids to fall into illicit distribution channels, failed to alert regulators of extreme volume, and incentivized sales of these drugs with financial bonuses. We will not stand by while children are born addicted to opioids and our citizens die.

The Cherokee Nation is represented by special counsel Richard Fields of Fields PLLC and Boies Schiller Flexner partners Steve Zack and William Ohlemeyer.

“The defendants will need to answer for turning a blind eye to the grave harm they are causing individuals, their families and communities, which are left to pick up the pieces,” said Fields.

“We look forward to presenting this evidence to the Cherokee tribal court so that the citizens most harmed by the opioid epidemic can get the justice they deserve,” said Ohlemeyer.

How Social and Popular Media is Desensitising our Youth*

How Social and Popular Media is Desensitising our Youth*

By Muntadhir Abbas

As we plunge deeper into a world full of innovation in technological entertainment and social media frenzies, I have recently found myself seriously questioning the effects many of these platforms are having on our youth, as well the naivety of parents in this fast-paced and ever changing society we live in. Don’t get me wrong, there are numerous advantages to so many new and diverse sources of communication and entertainment. However, we are often blind to the risks they pose to children and adolescents.

In this, the first of two articles exploring the main social issues that stem from mediums such as TV, music, social media and console games, I hope to simply provide an insight into the reality of the effects of such media, coupled with my observations as a secondary/high school teacher.

It was the last day of term before Easter holiday, in particular, that prompted me to write this, as well as the exclusion from school of several Muslim children so far this academic year. Please note, I really don’t care whether children are Muslim are not, as I believe the welfare of EVERY child is important and the points I hope to raise apply to all demographics of society.

As it was the last lesson, deemed to be a ‘fun lesson’, I allowed the children, who are thirteen going on fourteen, to ‘chill on their phones’ as long as they didn’t use social media – the root of all disputes these days (a topic best discussed another time).

As I marked books, I noticed near on silence. When questioned, pupils almost unanimously said they were watching Netflix on their phone. Perhaps trusting my better judgement and not originally allowing them to use their phones would’ve been wiser, but now I was curious and felt the need to discuss things further. I asked about the phones they had, the contract they were on, who pays for bills, whether it was their own Netflix subscription, what they watch and so on. To my astonishment – and I’m still young and with the times – almost all pupils had the latest smartphone, with a fully paid contract, their own Netflix subscription and were free to watch whatever they wanted without any parental control. They were even viewing series that I watch – like Narcos, House of Cards and Top Boy – all of which have scenes I feel the need to skip! Furthermore, one of the girls said she was going to watch the infamous film 50 Shades of Grey film over the weekend. It was at this point that they could all see the concern and shock on my face, so we discussed things a little further. After some very tactful questions and reasoning on my part, the children – of various ethnicities and religions – all agreed and concluded that they are bombarded with so many scenes of violence, sex, drug and alcohol abuse that many of these social vices just aren’t, for lack of a better word, an ‘issue’ these days. Whilst I almost felt old fashioned, I think what really hit me was the acceptance and desensitisation that existed within these naive and somewhat vulnerable children – and they are just that, children!

“Do not follow that of which you have no knowledge. Indeed! The hearing, the sight and the heart — about each of these you will be questioned.” (Quran 17:36)

A study carried out by Dr. Steve Martino in 2013, published by research organisation RAND, discovered the following in relation to the links between media and psychosocial issues:

The more sexual content that kids see on television, the earlier they initiate sexual activity, the more likely they are to regret their early sexual experiences, and the more likely they are to have an unplanned teen pregnancy.

– There is a strong casual connection between youth exposure to violence in the media and violent or aggressive behaviour and thoughts.

– Kids are exposed to nearly 300 alcohol commercials per year. Similarly, more than 80% of movies depict alcohol use.

– The motives movie characters convey for smoking can adversely affect adolescents’ real-world smoking risk.

Furthermore, a study in 2005 by the notable pressure group the Keiser Family Foundation found the following in an intense survey:

– In 2005 there were 3,783 (sexual related) scenes in a 1,000-hour sample, compared with 1,930 in 1998.

– It found that 70% of shows had sexual content, ranging from a sexual reference to full depiction, with five sex-related scenes per hour on average.

As responsible adults, whether you are a parent or not, and whether you are religious or not, you don’t even need the studies above to tell you that there are real and alarming links between the mediums children and adolescents interact with and the types of behavioural and social issues they manifest.

To be blunt, consider the following areas of entertainment and their possible vices, remembering that everything about them is not bad, but if left unchecked, our youth are vulnerable.

TV and Films

With so many more scenes of violence, sex, nudity, substance abuse and gore, even during family hours (traditionally 7-9pm), we need to censor what is appropriate for youngsters to watch. The people they watch will often become a source of emulation, and if that is a drug dealer or a beautified popular cheerleader (forgive the clichés) then their perception of reality and aspiration in life will be warped. To give a better idea of how sexual activity has changed over time, a fact sheet released in 2011 by the Family Planning Association, found that the average age of sexual intercourse for both men and women was 16. This is down from 17 years of age from a similar study carried out a decade earlier.

“And the right of your sight is that you lower it before everything which is unlawful to you. And that you abandon using it except in situations in which you can take heed in such a way that you gain insight or acquire knowledge by it. Indeed the sight is the gateway to reflection.” – A Treatise of Rights; The Right of the Eye (Ali ibn Hussain as-Sajjad)

Music

Aside from the traditional view of music being impermissible (haram) in Islam (and that debate is well outside the scope of this article) generally certain types of music are seen to be detrimental to society. In some cases they stereotype specific cultures and result in self-fulfilling prophecies of gang culture and substance abuse, and in other cases the raw sexual content is alarming especially when the age of the listeners are as young as five. For example, in 2008, the song ‘I Kissed A Girl’ by Kate Perry was number one in the U.K. charts for several weeks, with children of all ages buying the single and singing the lyrics. The song was in reference to a lesbian experience, which the singer romanticised and soon gained fame for doing so. Again, the discussion on homosexuality is for another time, but the point is, we need to pay attention to what children are listening to. Other genres consist of constant references to drug abuse, womanising and gang culture, and yet have become so popular amongst teenage boys in particular. And these mainstream themes show no sign of abating.

And the right of hearing is to keep it pure by not making it the direct pathway to your heart, except for noble words that establish some good in your heart or grant you a noble trait. Indeed hearing is the gateway through which various concepts reach the heart —whether good or evil. And there is no power but in God. – A Treatise of Rights; The Right of the Ear (Ali ibn Hussain as-Sajjad)

Video Games

No-one needs to be told how popular one particular video game is, but the statistics are scary. In late 2013 for example, when Grand Theft Auto (GTA) V was released, it took three days for it to generate over one billion dollars in sales, making it the fastest selling entertainment product in history. This game is filled with violence, seeking gamers to use torture tactics, featuring grotesque depictions of women and general bad taste. Yet, the sales figures don’t lie, and youngsters across the globe are hooked to a game which simply numbs emotion towards what are very serious and sensitive issues in the world we live in.

Social media

Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram, Tinder, Twitter…the list goes on. All these innovative social media platforms, some of which have fantastic uses, are also places of much controversy. From child sexual grooming to radicalisation, there is a plethora of issues that arise from social media platforms. On a more day to day basis, children are using these sites and apps to express emotions in very unhealthy ways. This also extends to it being a major source of e-bullying, and the unmonitored sexual freedoms that exist online. From my experience in dealing with teenagers and social media, there are far too many conflicts that emanate as a result of irresponsible use of social media. The vast amount of freedom teenagers have been afforded both by parents and the owners of social media has resulted in unprecedented exchanges of sexualised images. From pouting poses to ‘nudes’ (pictures of one’s self posing fully or partially nude), many girls, in particular, face increasing pressure to post revealing and risqué pictures of themselves. Coupled with sexualised advertising that bombards children on a daily basis, there is an alarming risk that children are interacting with sexual issue they can’t fully comprehend, and far too young an age. Social media ‘celebrities’ all too often romanticise a hedonistic, narcissistic lifestyle, setting concerning ideals for our youngest generation.

Tell the believing men to lower their gaze, and protect their private parts. That is purer for them. Verily, Allah is All- Aware of what they do. And tell the believing women to lower their gaze, and protect their private parts and not to show off their adornment… (Quran 24:30-31)

1700 words of (unintentional) scaremongering later, it is my belief parents, carers, children, community members and society in general need to take a long hard look at the influence entertainment is having on our youth. As I have said, there are many advantages and developments that stem from these innovations, but we need to be mindful about the holistic effects they are having. As I once heard a scholar say, “a knife can be used to cut an orange or to inflict harm”, and if we responsibly nurture our youth, we will most certainly see the fruits in the future.

As for practical ways in which I believe we can nurture, safeguard and nourish children at various ages, I will be including them part 2 of this series.

And verily God is the all-Knowing.

NYPD Boss Jailed For 28 Years by Elite Pedophile Ring Investigators*

NYPD Boss Jailed For 28 Years by Elite Pedophile Ring Investigators*

By Baxter Dmitry

Alberto Randazzo, a former New York City Police Department boss, was sentenced to 28 years in prison for sexual exploitation of children and receipt of child pornography, as the Trump administration’s investigation into the elite pedophile ring that has infiltrated politics and law enforcement nationwide continues taking down high-profile perpetrators.

Randazzo was caught targeting mothers, persuading them to sexually abuse their children and send him pictures and videos of the acts.

The federal investigation into the elite paedophile ring is moving full steam ahead and heavy hitters have been employed to lead prosecutions. Randazzo’s sentence was announced by Bridget M. Rohde, Acting United States Attorney for the Eastern District of New York, Angel M. Melendez, Special Agent-in-Charge, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), New York, and James P. O’Neill, Commissioner, New York City Police Department (NYPD).

Alberto Randazzo lived a double life, publicly serving as an NYPD police officer while privately engaging in conduct to exploit the most vulnerable members of the community – our children,” stated Acting United States Attorney Rohde.

Together with our law enforcement partners we will continue to strive to protect the most vulnerable among us.”  

Special Agent-in-Charge Melendez said the days of elite paedophiles getting away with their heinous crimes because of their positions in society are officially over.

“Randazzo held a position with the sole purpose to serve and protect the people of this city. Instead, he targeted certain women, persuaded them to sexually abuse their children and had them send him pictures and videos of the acts,” said Special Agent-in-Charge Melendez.

His behavior is no less than deplorable. It is with continued joint law enforcement efforts that we can target these types of offenders and ensure that they are punished for their heinous deeds.”

After the conviction, Police Commissioner James P. O’Neill took the opportunity to deliver a shout out to Trump’s team of elite paedophile ring busters.

“Alberto Randazzo’s exploitation of innocent children is unconscionable. I am grateful to our detectives in Internal Affairs, Homeland Security, and the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Eastern District of New York for their work in bringing Randazzo to justice for these horrific crimes,” said O’Neill.

According to the Department of Justice: On July 12, 2016, the defendant pleaded guilty to two counts of conspiracy to sexually exploit a child and one count of receipt of child pornography.  According to court filings, from as early as 2010 through 2013, Randazzo targeted women through websites such as Ashley Madison and Match.com and persuaded them to sexually abuse children to whom they had access, so he could watch the abuse.

Randazzo was caught in February 2013, when a witness found disturbing text messages on Randazzo’s phone and uncovered emails from women sending Randazzo pictures of them molesting their children.  When the witness confronted him, Randazzo admitted his sexual interest in mothers having sex with their children.

At sentencing the government presented evidence that at least five women complied with Randazzo’s solicitations and sexually abused children in order to satisfy his sexual desires.  Randazzo’s victims ranged in age from a few months to eight years old, and he traveled out of state to watch two of them be molested in person.  Randazzo arranged to have the eight-year-old victim drugged so that he would not remember the abuse.

Three of the women Randazzo solicited have also been charged in the Eastern District of New York. Two have pleaded guilty, one of whom was sentenced to five years imprisonment, one of whom is awaiting sentencing, and another is awaiting trial.

Scrubbed from Textbooks — The U.S. Government’s National Experiment in Extermination*

By Claire Bernish 

In desperation to make effective the floundering Prohibition on alcohol, the U.S. government — unable to convince the public consumption of booze constituted a moral transgression — intentionally poisoned the supply in a last-ditch attempt to enforce State-mandated sobriety.

This “chemist’s war of Prohibition” became, as outspoken opponent and New York City chief medical examiner in the 1920s, Charles Norris, hauntingly described, “our national experiment in extermination.”

Rather than keep people away from bathtub gin and the constant flow of liquor in hidden speakeasies — the State-sanctioned toxic experiment killed thousands of people who simply wanted to imbibe.

Alcohol poisoning in the time of Prohibition had become commonplace — anyone with a grasp on forced taboos will tell you government control of vice furiously fuels black markets — as home distillers, including those keen to profit unethically, concocted batches of booze made with questionable ingredients.

Hospitals accustomed to treating illnesses caused by bad batches of homemade alcohol — bootleg supplies not infrequently were tainted with metals and other contaminants — were not prepared for a spate of deaths in New York City over the Christmas holidays in 1926. This wasn’t, they realized, a typical case of toxic back-alley booze — in a mere two days, 23 people lost their lives.

People began dropping like flies, in fact, and a list of similar incidents quickly lengthened.

Thirty-three people perished in just three days in Manhattan in 1928 from tainted hooch believed to be wood alcohol — and by that time, the public felt federal intervention might be necessary. However, as TIME reported shortly afterward,

“Everyone expected the intervention and assistance of Federal forces, lately so loudly active in Manhattan. But no one expected what actually happened. The Federals announced that the government could do absolutely nothing. The statement of the Federal Grand Jury read as follows: ‘Inasmuch as wood alcohol is not a beverage, but a recognized poison (analogous to prussic acid or iodine) and its use and sale are not regulated by any of the Federal laws, we respectfully report that in those particular instances the subject matter is for the consideration of the State authorities rather than the Federal authorities. The State laws regulate the sale of poisons and provide for punishment for their improper use and sale.’”

By the time of the repeal of Prohibition in the December 5, 1933, ratification of the Twenty-first Amendment, estimates surmise no less than 10,000 had perished as a direct result of the government’s horrendously ill-fated poisoning program. As Slate’s Deborah Blum reported,

“Frustrated that people continued to consume so much alcohol even after it was banned, federal officials had decided to try a different kind of enforcement. They ordered the poisoning of industrial alcohols manufactured in the United States, products regularly stolen by bootleggers and resold as drinkable spirits. The idea was to scare people into giving up illicit drinking. Instead, by the time Prohibition ended in 1933, the federal poisoning program, by some estimates, had killed at least 10,000 people.”

In order to poison the supply, the government had to turn to the base ingredient commonly used by bootleg manufacturers, as TIME Magazine explained,

“For years, that industrial alcohol had been ‘denatured’ by adding toxic or unappetizing chemicals to it — the idea was originally so that people couldn’t escape beverage taxes by drinking commercial-use alcohol instead — but it was still possible to re-purify the liquid so that it could be consumed.

“So, as TIME reported in the Jan. 10, 1927, issue, a solution emerged from the anti-drinking forces in the government: that year, a new formula for denaturing industrial-grade alcohol was introduced, doubling how poisonous the product became. The new formula included ‘4 parts methanol (wood alcohol), 2.25 parts pyridine bases, 0.5 parts benzene to 100 parts ethyl alcohol’ and, as TIME noted, ‘Three ordinary drinks of this may cause blindness.’ (In case you didn’t guess, ‘blind drink’ isn’t just a figure of speech.)”

Prohibition had widespread support, and although not everyone agreed with the government’s new method of coercion meant to quash the nation’s obvious love affair with alcohol — TIME noted New Jersey Senator Edward I. Edwards called it “legalized murder” — those who did pontificated on the supposed amorality of drinking as justification for poisoning deaths.

“The Government is under no obligation to furnish the people with alcohol that is drinkable when the Constitution prohibits it,” asserted poisoning and Prohibition advocate, Wayne B. Wheeler. “The person who drinks this industrial alcohol is a deliberate suicide … To root out a bad habit costs many lives and long years of effort. …”

The Chicago Tribune strikingly editorialized in 1927, as cited by Slate,

“Normally, no American government would engage in such business. … It is only in the curious fanaticism of Prohibition that any means, however barbarous, are considered justified.”

Myriad ruinous government programs, in particular prohibitions on alcohol and cannabis, have been implemented under the premise of protecting the people from some misbegotten ill — but, in practice, these efforts too often play out more disastrously than if the State had never intervened in the first place.

Ratification of the Eighteenth Amendment to the Constitution in 1919 meant a ban on the sale, manufacture, and transport of alcoholic beverages — and the subsequent passage of the Volstead Act provided the rules for enforcement of Prohibition when it went into effect in 1920.

Anti-alcohol organizations constantly sermonized on the evils of drinking, and though the notion seems almost quaint in 2017, the post-war atmosphere in the U.S. welcomed any movement to prevent further degradation of morals — or, more accurately, the morals of a specific group of people whose grandstanding centered around alcohol.

Unsurprisingly, vocal support for the platform overrepresented the reality — the business of banned booze immediately and decisively boomed. Blum wrote,

“Alcoholism rates soared during the 1920s; insurance companies charted the increase at more than 300 more percent. Speakeasies promptly opened for business. By the decade’s end, some 30,000 existed in New York City alone. Street gangs grew into bootlegging empires built on smuggling, stealing, and manufacturing illegal alcohol. The country’s defiant response to the new laws shocked those who sincerely (and naively) believed that the amendment would usher in a new era of upright behavior.”

None of that shock nor the high-and-mighty stance from which the temperance movement preached moral uprightness ever targeted the government for recklessly condemning random alcohol drinkers to death.

When the State takes the reins of any flippantly righteous high horse, it’s a veritable guarantee the program is doomed to failure — and Prohibition was no exception.

Indiscriminately killing more than 10,000 people by deliberate poisoning, however, belies the less candid goal the government would never admit: control at any cost.
