Don't California my [Insert State Here]: The egregious injustice of SB276 and its trailer bill, which solidified sweeping vaccine legislation into law, was enacted under the false pretenses of fraudulent exemptions, targets medically fragile children, and will usher in an age of medical tyranny
"They came first for philosophical exemptions and I said nothing, because my kids are in private school. Then they came for religious exemptions and I said nothing, because I am not that kind of religious. Then they came for our medical freedom and I said nothing, because I could still home school. Then they came for me and took my children. And no one was left to speak up."
- Lavenda Memory
How a bill becomes a law: apparently, by enough good people who know better--doing nothing, saying nothing.
Yesterday, both SB276 and its trailer bill, SB714 passed through the California Assembly and Senate and were signed into law by Governor Gavin Newsom, catapulting the next civil rights movement into full swing, and setting the stage for a sweeping wave of medical tyranny and government overreach.
Medical freedom fighters came out in droves to decry the draconian bill SB276, peacefully occupying the assembly and the senate, until threatened with arrest and ordered to disperse from the latter.
Despite mainstream media portrayal, SB276 opponents are by and large not anti-vaxxers, but rather, ex-vaxxers and vaccine-hesitant mothers (and a few courageous fathers) with documented adverse reactions in themselves or their children that by the testimony of their own doctors has rendered them ineligible for further vaccinations.
Despite lack of coverage by every major media outlet, some of the California legislators who voted no and supported the protestors relayed to SB276 opponents that this was the largest outpouring of activism that they had ever witnessed for any bill during their political tenure.
In spite of the widespread opposition to the bill at the California Capitol, the viral #JUSTASKING and #SOS social media campaigns that lit up Governor Gavin Newsom's Instagram page in yellow, and vocal outcries by parents across the nation, the bills were signed into law amongst pleas from medical freedom fighters, "No segregation--no discrimination--yes on education, for all!".
Voting was divided squarely down party lines. These bills were passed thanks to unanimous yes votes by Democrats, revealing that their allegiance unequivocally lies with corporate interests over the constituents to which they are beholden on this issue.
Republicans voted no across the board, with some assembly members, such as Waldron, Mathis, and Melendez, cheering on the protestors as they chanted, "Moms know best!" from the rafters.
"It is quite stunning to watch liberals applauding censorship, particularly the muzzling of the bullied mothers of injured children in order to protect pharmaceutical products from criticism".

Medically Fragile Children Made the Sacrificial Lamb
The momentum behind the passage of SB276, which affects less than 1% of school-aged children--those who have experienced documented vaccine reactions in themselves or their family members, or who have medical conditions or family histories that preclude vaccination--only showcases the magnitude of the monetary incentive of the pharmaceutical industry at play that it is motivated to target such a minority of the population at the legislative level.
Under the trailer bill, there will be grandfathering in of medical exemptions (ME), however, periodic reapproval of exemptions based upon the restrictive list of CDC/ACIP/AAP Contraindications will be required, such that 99% of all children with existing exemptions will not qualify and will therefore be ineligible for public school when the new criteria are enacted.
The language is ambiguous; however, under the passage of this law, it appears that the only sure-fire qualifying CDC contraindications for medical exemption are anaphylaxis, encephalopathy, anaphylactic allergies to egg or yeast, severe immunodeficiency (ie. cancer, organ transplant) and intussusception (for rotavirus vaccine only). Known vaccine reactions, according to FDA Vaccine Package Inserts for Childhood Vaccines on the CDC Recommended Schedule, that will likely not qualify as CDC contraindications, include the following:
- Severe nerve paralysis
- Vasovagal syncope
- Limb paralysis
- Brachial neuritis
- Fever over 105 degrees Fahrenheit
- Hypotonic, unresponsive episodes
- Guillian-Barre syndrome (autoimmune attack on the nerves)
- Stevens-Johnson syndrome (rare, serious disorder of the skin and mucous membranes)
- Angioneurotic edema
- Subacute sclerosing pancencephalitis
- Swelling of injected limb and joints
- Bacterial skin and tissue infections
- Moderate to severe allergic reactions
- Difficulty swallowing
- Kawasaki disease (a disease causing systemic inflammation of blood vessels)
- Acute disseminated encephalomyelitis
- Thrombocytopenia purpura (a decreased number of circulating platelets)
- Nerve deafness in the ear
- Henoch-Schonlein purpura (HSP) (a disease involving inflammation of small blood vessels)
- Wheezing or asthma attacks
- Chronic tinnitus
- Optic nerve inflammation
- Severe eye inflammation
- Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)
- Spinal cord inflammation
- Hair loss
- Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE)
- Onset or exacerbation of multiple sclerosis (MS)
- Rheumatoid arthritis (RA)
- Blood clots in the limbs
- Tachycardia or palpitations
These are real possibilities post-vaccination, as a sizable fraction of the population has genetic polymorphisms (SNPs) that render them susceptible to vaccine injury via a compromised ability to excrete toxicants contained within vaccines. In fact, this novel field of inquiry is only now being characterized by the field of adversomics, which delves into vaccine adverse reactions using immunogenomics and systems biology approaches.
Yet now, in order to attend public school, most vaccine-injured California residents must forcibly submit to medical procedures deemed "unavoidably unsafe" by the Supreme Court in 2011.
A Manufactured Crisis Spurs SB276
This flagrant act of government overstep, authored by Democratic Senator Richard Pan--who has accepted over $152,000 in campaign contributions from the pharmaceutical industry--was buttressed under his false assertion that its intention was to stop unscrupulous doctors from writing so-called "fraudulent" and "invalid" medical exemptions, despite the fact that not one doctor has been found guilty of this practice.
A Freedom of Information (FOI) request reinforced the notion that SB276 has been promulgated as a solution to an entirely manufactured crisis. Bill author Richard Pan put forth the notion that California doctors needed to be policed in the interest of public health in response to supposed claims about these exemptions by consumers.
As was revealed in a press conference on September 5, 2019 with human rights attorney Leigh Dundas, however, a multi-year rogue astroturf operation to illegally obtain private medical records was led by Santa Barbara Health Department Chief Health Officer Dr. Charity Dean, which included county health officers as well as medical doctors, some of whom were associates of Pan.
As part of these efforts, spearheaded by Dean, a letter was sent to every school and daycare center directing personnel to immediately fax over all medical exemptions, in direct violation of federal law and FERPA, which protects immunization records from release in situations barring emergency. In other words, without parental consent, non-redacted student health files were being disclosed and sent around the state.
As Dundas discussed, records of round-table meetings headed by Dr. Dean revealed that county health officials considered it a "systems level opportunity" to "smoke out their physicians," going so far as to suggest "investigations that we can conduct at anytime or through cobbling together unwarranted referrals to the medical board" against the children's doctors in order to avoid the stymying efforts of interference by the children's parents. To circumvent fall out from a public records request, they proposed co-opting their county council to open permanent ongoing investigations against doctors which they would "just never close" such that their "entire string" of actions would "never be revealed".
During the meeting, one of the county health officers even remarked that it is "fun to be sued by those whackjobs," presumably referring to the parents of the medically compromised and disabled children whose medical records they were planning to invade. This FOI request information suggests not only that the medical privacy of California's most vulnerable children--those with standing medical exemptions--was needlessly, recklessly, and irreversibly violated, but that Dean, Pan, and others were involved in astroturfing and conspiracy--leading Dundas to call for a federal investigation.
It also brought to light that no legitimate consumer complaints were established against doctors writing medical exemptions. Nonetheless, Dr. Dean was still appointed as Assistant Director of the California Department of Public Health despite her involvement in this scheme.
These findings, in other words, reinforce the fact that some SB276 proponents have been falsely motivated to support it based upon the erroneous grounds that this very small minority of medically fragile children have been granted "fradulent" exemptions, such that policing of exemptions was in order. Doctors desperate to climb the political ladder acted in direct violation of FERPA and HIPAA, with the Medical Board of California acting as puppets of pharma.
As articulated by California freedom fighter Samantha Lynn, "If SB276 passes, it will be under verbally false pretenses and conspiracy which speaks volumes about just how low corrupt politicians, public health authorities, and pharmaceutical companies will go to obfuscate justice and to breach the doctor-patient relationship in favor of vaccinating every last person in this country no matter the cost".
Not only did their passage violate the integrity of the doctor-patient relationship, interjecting a state review board into the health destiny of the child, but it rendered physicians writing medical exemptions the object of intense scrutiny, making obtaining a new medical exemption virtually impossible.
With the spotlight on doctors who write more than 5 exemptions in one year, obtaining exemptions will be exceedingly difficult. In one experiment, a group of parents called 882 doctors to explore the ease of acquiring a medical exemption for a case of previous anaphylaxis to prior vaccination, and every last doctor turned down the request.
The Deafening Silence of Allies
Perhaps most deafening was not the character assassination to which advocates for body autonomy, informed consent, and medical freedom were subject, but the deafening silence of closeted allies, who are too afraid to risk their personal safety, bottom line, or public backlash to speak out against what is sure to usher in medical tyranny of epic proportions, especially with the introduction of bills like HR2527, or the "Vaccinate All Children Act of 2019".
"In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends"
- Martin Luther King, Jr.
And so we ask, where were you, believe-women proponents? Does the advocacy for taking women at their word stop at vaccine injury?
Where were you, pro-lifers? Why overlook the fact that some vaccines contain cell lines derived from fetal tissues harvested from elective abortions?
Where were you, my-body-my-choicers? Does this sentiment apply in every circumstance except mandatory injectable medical procedures?
Where were you, vegans? Why champion for animal rights but support products with residual debris from animal cell cultures?
Where were you, science-is-real evangelists? Why worship at the altar of evidence based medicine yet elevate a product for which there is no true saline placebo-controlled trial--for which synergistic toxicity testing has never been performed--which has never been evaluated for carcinogenic or mutagenic potential?
Where were you, gun control activists? Have you forgotten about those who die in the name of herd immunity?
Where were you, low-toxers, organic consumers, better-beauty-industry advocates? Why ignore the fact that documented neurotoxins like mercury and aluminum, that carcinogens like formaldehyde are explicitly included in vaccinations?
Where were you, functional medicine doctors, who privately object to the fact that total vaccine doses have increased from 5 in 1962 to 72 in 2019, yet you won't publicly take a stand for fear of alienation from allopathy.
Where were you, critical thinkers? If vaccines are safe and effective why has NVICP paid out over 4 billion dollars to vaccine-injured families?
Where were you, free thinkers? Why defend a product that is legally exempt from liability?
Where are you, stalwart champions of first amendment rights? Does freedom of expression apply in all cases except when it comes to crusaders for informed consent?
Check your hypocrisy.
Regardless of where you fall in the partisan divide, you will be affected by this issue, one of the defining issues of our time.
Now is not the time to sit silently on the sidelines or to lurk in the shadows, observing from a safe distance.
Those mothers arrested in peaceful protest at the capitol were fighting for your children, too.
The Future of California
The passage of these bills is nothing short of a nuclear bomb in the political landscape of California and will inevitably elicit a domino effect in surrounding states, as what happens there will set a precedent.
It will usher in countless technical lawsuits, as SB276 and its trailer bill violate basic human rights, which will lead advocates, citizens, and physicians to sue the state for trespassing upon HIPAA and the Final Conscience Rule. Liability lawsuits will also ensue, including class actions, brought forth by individuals who have suffered irreparable harm at the hands of vaccination.
The 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act rendered vaccine manufacturers immune from criminal liability, instead establishing a dedicated vaccine court to be funded by a $0.75 cent tax on every vaccine administered (through which over $4.2 billion has been paid out since 1989 for vaccine injuries and deaths as part of the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, with a cap of $250,000 per vaccine injury, according to the Health Resources and Services Administration).
Individuals highly educated on the shortcomings of vaccine safety studies and on the corrupt misconduct that has granted vaccine companies legal immunity (remember, vaccine manufacturers are presently in court for bribing doctors and lying about vaccine safety) will set their sights on state accountability, transplanting the burden of criminality to the state.
It could likewise lead to mass exodus from the state, as articulated by California freedom fighter Danielle, "The vast majority who oppose SB276 are educated, of substantial means, and make significant contributions to the state's economy. Say bye, bye to tax revenue". As stated at a press conference yesterday by RFK Jr.,
"We are going to sue them in the state courts. We are going to sue them in the federal courts. We are going to sue them in the appellate courts. And if we need to, we are going to sue them in the Supreme Court…Don't complain, don't whine, don't cry, organize…We are an insurgency. They cannot stop us now. We are not going to go away."
- Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
We Can No Longer Turn a Blind Eye
What happens in California won't stay in California, but it will precipitate a domino effect and tide of medical tyranny across the nation as other states fall in line.
This is a defining moment in time, where we will either be remembered for turning a blind eye or for standing up and fighting for what's ethical, moral, and right.
By observing idly by in the sidelines, we are complicit to a gross violation of our first amendment rights, our personal liberties, and our medical freedoms.
By claiming to have no dog in the fight, we are ignoring the systematic dismantling of our rights that is a byproduct of a multibillion dollar industry--which will profiteer not only off of childhood vaccine mandates but upon the compulsory adult mandates which will inevitably be next in the pipeline.
By being quick to yell "shame" and "how could they" when it comes to historical atrocities yet plugging our ears and putting our heads in the sand when it comes to this modern day epidemic of suffering, we are relaying a signal of consent.
By failing to speak out that science is never "settled," that no medical procedure is 100% safe nor effective, and that many of the conditions for which exemptions will be revoked are documented side effects of these pharmaceutical products, per vaccine package inserts--we are doing an immeasurable disservice to our future generations.
Our silence is complicity.
Our silence will speak volumes more than our words ever could.
"Let me ask you one question - Is your money that good? Will it buy you forgiveness? Do you think that it could?
"I think you will find when your death takes its toll all the money you made will never buy back your soul".- Bob Dylan
