Pharma Company Has License Suspended As Vaccine Blamed For Sterilization of 500,000 Women & Children

A state-sponsored forced sterilization on a massive scale has allegedly taken place in Africa according to opposition leaders and the public who are railing against the government. An industrial pharmaceutical laboratory has since had its license suspended by the Kenya Accreditation Service as a result of the controversy.

Kenya’s opposition leader Raila Odinga—who swore himself in as president on Tuesday—claimed that at least 500,000 young girls and women may be infertile, following a tetanus vaccine administered by the government in 2014 and 2015.

The controversy began coming to a head in 2016 when Agriq-Quest Ltd, a Nairobi-based pharmaceutical company got in a dispute with Kenya’s Ministry of Health over their tetanus and polio vaccinations. A group of Catholic doctors originally made the accusations claiming that the vaccines may contain a hormone that is dangerous to young women and can cause potential sterilization.

As the Agence de Presse Africaine reported:

Odinga said girls and women aged between 14 and 49 from the fastest growing populations in the country will not have children, because of a state-sponsored sterilization exercise that was sold to the country as a tetanus vaccination.

The Catholic Church was ignored when it mounted a strong but lonely campaign against the mass tetanus vaccination, after it raised concerns about the safety of the vaccine that was being used, he said.

At the time, the Catholic Church in Kenya claimed that the tetanus vaccine used by the government of Kenya and UN agencies was contaminated with a hormone (hCG) that can cause miscarriages and render some women sterile.

“The Church’s position was informed by what had happened in Mexico, Nicaragua and Philippines, where the various governments together with WHO/UNICEF had conducted similar campaigns using tetanus toxoid impregnated with beta human chorionic gonadotropin (BhCG) that causes permanent infertility among girls and women,” Odinga continued.

Odinga says they confirmed through analysis of samples that the vaccines used were tainted with the hormone.

“Today, we can confirm to the country that the Catholic Church was right. Hundreds of thousands of our girls and women, aged between 14 and 49, from the fastest growing populations in the country will not have children, because of the state-sponsored sterilization that was sold to the country as tetanus vaccination,” he declared.

After Agriq-Quest’s license was suspended, the company pointed the finger at the government. They claimed that the government’s decision to suspend their license was due to the fact that Agriq-Quest refused to doctor the tests for them.

According to Business Dailly Africa, when Agriq-Quest conducted the tests on the vaccines, they found the Catholic Church’s suspicions to be correct.

As BDA reported, “The company’s results from tests carried out on the vials showed that the samples of the vaccines were contaminated as had been claimed by the Catholic Church and Agriq-Quest claimed the government wanted the results altered to show that they were fit to be administered to women and children.”

According to Odinga, as reported by APA, the government, for some mysterious reason, was hell-bent on misleading the country, while intentionally sterilizing Kenyan girls and women.

“The vaccines were a great crime committed against women. Women should choose when to have children and how to space them,” he said.

It is important to point out that the belief that tetanus vaccinations sterilizing citizens has been a long time controversy in Kenya and has been disproven prior to these claims.

Also, after the discussion came to a head, in spite of claims of tests showing contamination, UNICEF and the World Health Organization later said that the vaccines were safe and procured from a pre-qualified manufacturer.

However, according to Odinga, they accessed the analysis from four highly-regarded institutions, such as Agriq Quest Ltd, the Nairobi Hospital Laboratories, the University of Nairobi and Lancet Kenya.

“These results all indicate that the Tetanus Toxoid Vaccine had high contents of beta human chorionic gonadotropin hormone (BhCG) that causes sterility in women.”

WATCH: Miami Cop Suspended After Kicking Handcuffed Man in Head on Video

Earlier today, the City of Miami Police Department issued an ominous statement: Chief Jorge Colina said he’d received a video of an officer clearly violating departmental policy. That cop had been relieved of duty, he reported, adding the department had sent the clip to the Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Office.

Now the video has surfaced. It shows an Miami Police officer taking a running start and then kicking a defenseless, handcuffed suspect in the head. A police department spokesperson confirmed this was the video in question.

Just before 5 p.m., MPD named the officer as Mario Figueroa, an officer who’s been on the force for two years. He is suspended with pay pending an internal investigation. MPD has so far declined to release any more information about his past Internal Affairs record or current salary and instructed New Times to file a records-request for more information.

The woman who posted the video, Lisa Harrell, wrote online that the officer was suspended after someone sent the clip to MPD. Harrell told New Times that the incident occurred around 9:40 a.m. today at an apartment complex near the intersection of NW Eighth Street and NW Seventh Avenue in Overtown, Miami’s historically black neighborhood. The area’s residents have complained for decades about overzealous and often brutal police tactics.

“So city of miami getting to reckless,” she wrote online. “He was down already. Didnt have to kick him!!! I will not let this go unnoticed. He was not resisting arrest he got on his knees and put his hands on his head. He WILLINGLY LAID DOWN. That fucking kick was uncalled for!!” [sic]

The victim of the officer’s kick is clearly not resisting during the video clip. It shows cops placing handcuffs on his limp arms as he lies face-down in a field of grass. Then, out of nowhere, a Miami cop sprints and kicks the man squarely in the head.

Chief Colina said the video “depicts a clear violation of policy.” The department waited roughly three hours after New Times requested the officers’ name to release that information to the public.

Just after 4:20 p.m. today, Miami-Dade County State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle — a prosecutor not exactly known for her tough stance on police-misconduct cases — announced that her office’s Public Corruption unit has opened an investigation into the beating.

“I have watched today’s Culmer Place video involving a uniformed City of Miami Police Officer and I was shocked and appalled by what I saw,” Rundle said in a news release. “Assistant State Attorney Johnette Hardiman, of my Public Corruption Unit, has been assigned to immediately open an investigation.”

Use-of-force complaints have long been a persistent problem at Miami PD. In 2013, the U.S. Department of Justice announced in a damning report that the department had “engaged in a pattern or practice of excessive use of force through officer-involved shootings in violation of the Fourth Amendment of the Constitution.” (The DOJ is technically still monitoring MPD’s treatment of people of color, in particular.) Though shootings by cops seem to have dropped since the DOJ investigation ended, MPD has been repeatedly sued for alleged beatings, shootings, and other potential violations of the law.

Multiple videos published in 2018 have shown Miami officers choking suspects or grabbing them by the neck, for example. Just this week, the city’s Civilian Investigative Panel, a group that probes complaints against the police (but lacks power to punish officers) ruled a group of Miami cops violated both departmental policy and Florida law by strip-searching a woman in the middle of a busy Wynwood street. MPD’s internal affairs unit, however, cleared the officers of wrongdoing.

“This is outrageous,” the American Civil Liberties Union of Florida tweeted after this story was initially published. “This type of excessive and unnecessary use of force by police, particularly against people of color, fits a pattern that needs to end.”

Ethiopian premier league suspended after referee attacked by players and coach (VIDEO)

The incident happened on May 1 when Defence Force SC welcomed their rivals from Welwalo Adigrat University FC.

The game was tied at 1-1 when Welwalo’s goalkeeper awkwardly deflected a shot – making the ball slip towards the goal line. The referee indicated that the ball had crossed the line and awarded a goal to the hosts.

That decision triggered an eruption of violence that saw Welwalo’s players chase the referee, who tried to defend himself with a corner flag before falling to the ground. He was then allegedly beaten by a member of Welwalo’s coaching staff.

The official avoided serious injuries as he managed to escape from the stadium after the brawl. The coach involved in the incident was reportedly fired immediately after the game.

Ethiopian Football Federation officials are expected to meet with team representatives on Thursday, to discuss the issue.

Ohio student suspended for not participating in National Walkout Day

jocob shoemaker suspension

jocob shoemaker suspension

FOTM–Expression of only one opinion allowed.

From Fox NewsAn Ohio high school student said he tried to stay apolitical during the National Walkout Day over gun violence but was suspended for his choice to remain in a classroom instead of joining protests or the alternative, going to study hall.

Jacob Shoemaker, a senior at Hilliard Davidson High School, said he didn’t want to take sides in the gun-control debate consuming the country. If he went outside for the walkout, he said, he would be supporting gun control. If he stayed in the common area of the school, he said, he would be seen as supporting gun violence and disrespecting the 17 lives lost in the Parkland, Fla. High school shooting the month before.

Jacob had met with the school’s principal on Tuesday, a day before the rally, for about an hour to find out what exactly the walkout was supporting. But he said the principal reportedly told him it was for the “students to express themselves.”

This left Jacob wondering if it was a memorial for the lives lost or a show of support for gun control.

He decided, instead, to stay in class for about 20 minutes doing homework after his teacher and fellow classmates left and locked the door. When they returned, he was slapped with a suspension.

Jacob’s father, Scott Shoemaker, said his son was just trying to stay neutral – and did nothing wrong. “Politics [doesn’t] belong in the school,” he said. “Students shouldn’t be pressured into taking a side.”

The story went viral after Jacob sent a photo of his out-of-school suspension citation to one of his friends, who posted it on social media. The school, as well as the Shoemakers, have received death threats and hate messages.

Scott Shoemaker said his son was just trying to be introspective – and he wasn’t acting out. “He didn’t do anything to deserve this,” he said. “He didn’t ask for this.”

The district says it’s responsible for students’ safety and they can’t be unsupervised.

Student Suspended for Refusing to Leave Classroom During Gun Control #Walkout

walkoutwalkout

The idea that this week’s school walkout was some grassroots movement by students who are seeking to challenge the status quo is a farce. The entire walkout was organized and sanctioned by the establishment and, as an incident out of Ohio shows, in one instance, choosing a side was even mandatory.

On Wednesday, millions of students across the country were encouraged by the government, mainstream media, and even their own school systems to walk out of class and demand the government take away their rights. It was, by no means, a challenge of authority and, in fact, it was a celebration of it.

Hilliard Davidson High School senior Jacob Shoemaker proved this point when he received a suspension for refusing to leave the classroom to participate in the walkout.

According to school officials, students were told they could participate in the walkout or go to the commons area for an alternative study hall. Shoemaker said he did not want to choose a side so he remained in the classroom instead.

Shoemaker told the Associated Press that school is not the place for divisive politics and to make his statement, he chose not to take sides. So, the 18-year-old was suspended.

School district spokesperson Stacie Raterman said official policy prohibited school officials from leaving Shoemaker unattended in the building for “security reasons,” 10TV reported.

Shoemaker told 10TV that he knew remaining in class would come with consequences and he was prepared to receive whatever punishment he had coming.

When he received the suspension, a friend published a photo of the notice online where it quickly went viral.

“Student refused to follow instructions after being warned repeatedly by several administrators,” the letter said. “Student not permitted on school property.”

The school promptly responded to state that Shoemaker was not suspended for choosing to abstain from the gun control debate. However, as Shoemaker explains, by forcing the students to leave the classroom for a political event—when they are supposed to be in class—he was compelled to take a side by the school and he chose not to do so.

Scott Shoemaker, Jacob’s father told 10TV that he thought the punishment his son received from school was harsh and they had no idea how much attention it would garner them.

To show how politicized the public education system is becoming in America, Shoemaker was not the only one to receive punishment for their views or lack thereof that day.

According to Jerusalem J. Greer, a blogger whose 17-year-old son attends Greenbrier Public School in Greenbrier, Arkansas, her son and two other teens face actual physical harm from the school for participating in the walkout.

“My kid and two other students walked out of their rural, very conservative, public school for 17 minutes today,” said Greer. “They were given two punishment options. They chose corporal punishment. This generation is not playing around.”

As the Daily Beast reports, Greenbier Public Schools “authorizes the use of corporal punishment to be administered in accordance with this policy by the Superintendent or his/her designated staff members who are required to have a state-issued license as a condition of their employment.”

Students are “given an explanation of the reasons for the punishment and are given an opportunity to refute the charges.”

When people questioned why she would let the school physically harm her son over the walkout, Greer said, “They choose this and we supported their choice.”

In the ostensible land of the free, children are swiftly becoming pawns of the establishment. These incidents illustrate the notion that through the public school system, children are being indoctrinated into the two-party paradigm.

What’s more, through this indoctrination, students are being divided and conquered before they become old enough to even challenge the establishment on their own. A bleak scenario indeed.

Brave SWAT Cops Suspended For Refusing to Stand Down and Trying to Stop Parkland Shooter

parkllandparklland

Parkland, FL — In the aftermath of the recent Parkland school shooting, the cowardice of many of the police who responded to the shooting has created an ongoing conversation in the media about the role of individual officers in life-threatening situations.

As we reported last month, 4 officers from the Broward County Sheriff’s office took cover and waited for backup during the shooting instead of going inside to stop the killer. The officer’s actions sparked outrage and left many people horrified at the fact that so many cops would stand on the sidelines as children were being murdered.

It turns out that there were actually a few officers who had the courage to go in after the killer—but now they are being punished for it. According to the Sun-Sentinel, two Miramar SWAT team members are being suspended for going into the school to stop the shooting because they did not have permission to do so.

The SWAT members were suspended on the grounds that their attempt to help created an “officer safety issue and left them unaccountable for their actions.”

Miramar SWAT team commander Captain Kevin Nosowicz wrote a memo to the officers on Feb. 22 which stated, “On Wednesday, February 14, 2018, you responded to an incident within the city limits of Parkland. This response was conducted without the knowledge or authorization from your chain of command. Self Response to incidents outside of our jurisdiction creates a lack of accountability for your actions. This type of response also creates an officer safety situation due to dispatch not knowing your location or activity. Effective Immediately you have been temporarily suspended from the SWAT Team until further notice. Please make arrangements with the training department to turn in your SWAT issued rifle.”

The memo went on to say that their actions were discovered through social media, and it somehow made the city look bad.

“It was discovered that there were several social media posts that were posted on the City of Miramar websites. These posts were found to have a direct connection to you and the incident that occurred within the city of Parkland. These posts were found to have a negative connotation to our city and the Miramar police department. The indirect dissemination of information regarding crimes or incidents is a violation of the department’s social media policy,” the memo stated.

A Miramar PD spokesperson said that they were not suspended for responding, but for not going through the proper protocol.

“Miramar PD had numerous officers and a victim advocate respond, without incident. The two SWAT officers temporarily suspended from the SWAT team, but not active duty, were not suspended for responding, but for NOT advising that they responded. They did not advise prior to self-dispatching, during the incident, nor immediately following. This is an officer safety issue, a violation of policy and goes against incident command training and the best practices learned from other mass casualty/shooting incidents,” the spokesperson said.

Broward County PBA President Jeff Marano commended the officers despite their suspension.

“While it may have been a violation of policy to not notify their supervisors that they were going there, their intentions were brave and heroic, I think,” Marano said.

As TFTP reported, all first responders were told to stand down and not enter the school. Some of them have spoken out, noting that they “could’ve saved lives” if they were allowed to go inside the school. Instead, children were left bleeding out instead of receiving the care they so desperately needed that could’ve saved them.

Cop Suspended As Video Shows He Cowered in Fear as Shooter Slaughtered Kids in The School

schoolschool

Parkland, FL — Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel, during a press conference on Thursday, announced that he has suspended the deputy who was responsible for “protecting” Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School after surveillance video showed that he cowered outside of the building instead of using his weapon to engage the shooter.

The deputy in question, Scot Peterson chose to resign Thursday as a result of being exposed.

“I am devastated,” Israel said. “Sick to my stomach. He never went in.”

According to Broward, who described what happened, Peterson remained outside of the building while Cruz was inside slaughtering defenseless students.

According to the Miami Herald,

A review of surveillance video showed that the deputy was in position and armed but never entered the building. He remained stationed outside the building while the shooting went on.

Israel said Peterson should have “Went in. Addressed the killer. Killed the killer.”

He said the video was part of the investigation and Israel said it may never be released.

What’s more, two other deputies have been suspended for their failure as well. As the Miami Herald notes, Israel said two other deputies, Edward Eason and Guntis Treijs are also under investigation and have been put on “restrictive duty.”

Exactly what these deputies did in regards to the shooting remains a mystery. However, as TFTP has reported, police were warned at least 20 times about Cruz making death threats to other students and they did nothing.

Everything that was supposed to prevent this tragedy from happening was in place and unfolded as it was designed to do. Nikolas Cruz was reported to the FBI by citizens for publicly declaring that he wanted to become a “Professional School Shooter.” However, the FBI apparently chose not to act on that information.

All the police state measures of see something say something happened ‘correctly’, armed police on school campuses happened ‘correctly’, and even the shooter himself publicly claimed that he was going to carry out this atrocity months before doing it—yet it still happened.

As TFTP previously reported, seven months ago, Cruz wrote, “I am going to kill law enforcement one day they go after the good people,” in the comments section of a video clip from the NatGeo show “Alaska State Troopers: Armed and Dangerous” that was posted on YouTube.

Then six months ago, he commented on a YouTube video titled, “Antifa Gun Club,” writing, “Im going watch them sheep fall f*ck antifa i wish to kill as many as i can.”

He also said he’s going to be a “Professional School Shooter.” 

Cruz also posted photos of dead animals and bragged about killing them on his Instagram. By all measures, this kid threw up every single red flag and set off every single warning there is—people reported this to law enforcement—and nothing.

No arrests. No questions. And, all of this was in spite of the Florida law called the Baker Act which allows for involuntary examination which can be initiated by judges, law enforcement officials, physicians, or mental health professionals.

Police in Florida already had more than enough power and help from citizens to stop this tragedy, but they didn’t use it. How on earth would giving them more power, like Israel is demanding, solve this problem?

So, what’s the answer? Should we just hand over more power to the police who demand it? Should we put more cops in schools? Should we ban guns?

The answer to the problem of mass shootings lies not in the reactionary nature of the above questions. As we’ve seen over the years, building a police state through a problem, reaction, solution methodology does little to prevent future tragedies as they go after the symptoms instead of the cause.

In America, instead of attempting to understand the psychological triggers of mass shooters—and the potential pharmaceutical chemical imbalance that caused them to snap—tragedies are exploited for political gain, used to passed legislation, and pushed to stoke political divide.

As this case helps to illustrate, schools do not become safer with more police presence. However, after the tragic shooting legislators began hinting that they would up the police presence in schools.

Aside from conditioning children to grow up in a police state, this move is terrible for other reasons as well. Research shows that police officers in schools create an environment that funnels children into the criminal justice system at a young age.

Normal adolescent behavior is criminalized and leads to arrests instead of detention. As the case above illustrates, this cop never even confronted the shooter, making his entire presence on campus little more than symbolic.

Schools in America are starting to more closely resemble prisons than learning facilities— and more cops facilitate this. Video after video shows the horrific nature of such a practice as children are seen being maced, beaten, and tasered for normal childhood behaviors.

The mere act of being a child is now criminalized.

Instead of attempting to solve a problem with logic and reason, schools are now taking the easy road and turning to the barrel of a gun to force compliance.

The reality is that no amount of police state will ever prevent future tragedies and until we focus on the cause—instead of the symptoms—the problem will only persist.

Pharma Co Has License Suspended as Vaccine Blamed For Sterilization of 500,000 Women & Children

A state-sponsored forced sterilization on a massive scale has allegedly taken place in Africa according to opposition leaders and the public who are railing against the government. An industrial pharmaceutical laboratory has since had its license suspended by the Kenya Accreditation Service as a result of the controversy.

Toronto: Cops suspended after eating pot edibles from dispensary raid, hallucinate and get stuck in a tree

Cops marijuana police weed

    

Two police officers have been suspended after they called for back-up, and the responding officer discovered that they were hallucinating from marijuana edibles – which they reportedly confiscated while raiding a dispensary.

CP24 reported that the officers consumed marijuana edibles while on duty, and then “called for help after one of the officers ended up in a tree.” The female officer who responded to the call “slipped and sustained a serious head injury.”

In response to the incident, Toronto Police Association President Mike McCormack refused to name the individuals, but said that there was an ongoing investigation and the suspects “could be charged or they could just be cleared through the investigation.”

“All I can tell you is that there is an ongoing investigation,” McCormack said. “I’m not aware of the specific allegations around the investigation and I’m not going to comment or speculate until the investigation is complete.”

The officers have been identified as Vito Dominelli and Jamie Young, and CTV News reported that they were “conducting plain-clothed surveillance” around 1 a.m. when they called for help. The officer who made the call claimed that he felt like he was going to pass out.

CTV also noted that Dominelli, who has “cultivated a considerable social media following by posting videos in uniform where he engages in light-hearted activities, like lip-synching to music,” has since set all of his accounts to private.

While McCormack would not say that Dominelli’s social media presence was connected to the investigation, he did say that he is concerned about officers giving the public the impression that they are not devoted to their jobs.

“I am always concerned when something belittles what we do in policing and doesn’t represent us in the right light,” McCormack said. “I don’t want the public to be under the misconception that we have a bunch of officers who have nothing to do but use social media.”

Both reports noted that while the department has not confirmed that the officers obtained the edibles while on the job, investigators are looking into whether they were seized during a recent dispensary raid.

Brian Patterson, president of the Ontario Safety League, told the Toronto Sun that he is not surprised by the incident, and he believes it serves as an example for why everyone should be cautious before they consume marijuana edibles.

“That’s what can happen when you digest this drug,” Patterson said. “I get a sense there is pressure to move these edibles on to the table quicker and I am saying I am not sure I ever want them on the table at all. We need to get a better handle on just what these edibles are and what the effects are on people who take them.”

As The Free Thought Project has reported, these officers are not the only ones who seem interested in trying marijuana edibles – and they don’t seem to have a problem using their badges to obtain the products. In June 2015, police officers in Santa Ana, California, were caught on surveillance cameras raiding a marijuana dispensary and stealing the merchandise.

The cameras captured the officers making profane jokes to one another while they played darts and testing out the merchandise in the store. In one part of the video, an officer can be seen taking a big bite out of what appears to be a marijuana edible, before he shakes his head in satisfaction and gives the other officers a “thumbs up.”

After entering the dispensary wearing riot gear, with guns drawn, the officers then began to make crude comments about the store’s owners and guests. They even suggested assaulting one of the occupants who was a partially blind paraplegic.

When a male officer asked, “Did you punch that one-legged old Benita?” a female officer responded, “I was about to kick her in her f-ing nub.”
