Seven members of Syria's White Helmets shot dead by unknown gunmen

Seven member of the Syrian White Helmets rescue group were shot dead by unknown gunmen on Saturday, sparking a manhunt and deep suspicions in the rebel-controlled province of Idlib.

The men were killed in their operations centre in the village of Sarmin at dawn on Saturday. Two of their vehicles as well as several of their distinctive white helmets were stolen, the group said.  

Many White Helmet volunteers have been killed in airstrikes during the six year Syrian war but opposition activists said it was the first time that members had been shot dead like this. 

Photographs from the scene showed the volunteers’ bodies lying across the floor of the centre and blood splashed over the logo of the White Helmets group. All had been shot execution-style at close range.

“The heart is saddened, there are tears in our eyes for you departure,” said Raed al-Saleh, the founder of the White Helmets. “May God strengthen us and make us patient for facing this tragedy.”

One of the men killed was Mohammed Abu Kifah, who appeared in a widely-shared video last year where he wept with emotion after rescuing a baby girl from the rubble of a bombed-out building. 

The White Helmets have been lauded by Western countries for saving civilian lives in opposition areas in Syria and in 2016 they narrowly missed out on winning the Nobel Peace prize. 

But the group also operates in areas controlled by jihadists and supporters of the Assad regime regularly accuse them of allying with terrorists.

Idlib province is now mainly controlled by Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), an Islamist rebel group that is dominated by jihadists linked to al-Qaeda. 

Activists in Idlib said they were baffled by the killings but did not think that HTS was responsible. The group has not targeted White Helmets in the past. 

One theory was that agents of the Assad regime had killed the men to create suspicion and distrust between rival rebel groups.

HTS recently fought an open battle against Ahrar al-Sham, another prominent rebel group, and there is lingering distrust in Idlib as a result. 

“The ones who did this are clever. They want to make conflicts worse between the rebel groups and show that there is no security and no safety in the opposition areas,” said Abdulkafe al-Hamdo, an English teacher in Idlib. 

Another theory is that the killings were the work of a criminal gang, who wanted to steal equipment from the White Helmets centre. Two vans were taken from the centre as well as several motorcycles and some walkie-talkie equipment. 

One of the vans was later found burned out on the edge of a field several miles from the centre.

The White Helmets centre is close to several other houses in the village of Sarmin but neighbours said they had not heard any gunfire during the night. That raises the possibility the White Helmets were killed with silenced weapons. 

The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) has released videos in the past showing its fighters using guns equipped with silencers. The Assad regime also has access to silencers through its allies in Russia and Syria.   

Mr al-Hamdo said members of the group had last been seen on Whatsapp at around 1am, suggesting they were killed sometime after that. 

Gareth Bayley, Britain’s special representative for Syria, condemned the killings. 

HTS has a network of checkpoints around Idlib province and activists said they hoped that the group’s fighters would be able to catch the killers. 

Idlib is one of the last major opposition strongholds in Syria and faces intense bombardment by the Assad regime and its Russian allies.

Many of the fighters and civilians the opposition areas of Aleppo fled to Idlib after the city fell in late 2016.

Follow the money! The unknown reasons doctors push vaccines

    

Blue Cross, Blue Shield, Blue Care Network of Michigan publishes online a shameless and bold report of how much cash they reward physicians for performing certain tests, and which apparently acts as an incentive to over-prescribe, thus inflating the costs of U.S. healthcare, which should be illegal.

Blue Cross/Blue Shield published the 2016 Performance Recognition Program, a 28-page report indicating how medical insurance companies actually increase the costs of healthcare!

Look what we find on the BC/BS page “Childhood Immunizations-Combo 10”!

If MDs meet a target of 63% of eligible member patients, they will receive a payout of $400 per completed eligible member. Wow! Now you know one of the key reasons why parents are hounded to vaccinate their infants and toddlers. Gelt, pecunia, greenbacks-whatever you call M-O-N-E-Y.

    

Parents should note in the State of Michigan, 2 influenza (flu) vaccines are required for a child by 2 years of age. No consideration, however, is given to the biochemical fact flu vaccines actually weaken the immune system [1] long-term.

Furthermore, according to Dr. Joseph Mercola, DO, “Foreign DNA/RNA from animal tissues [components of vaccines] can wreak havoc in your body and trigger autoimmunity in some people. [1]

Get a load of this: U.S. News reported “Flu Vaccine Ineffective for People 65 and Older Last Winter” [2016-17]. The News subtitle for that article was – Officials: Last winter’s flu vaccine was essentially ineffective in protecting older Americans against the illness.

With this candid admission:

But flu is particularly challenging. Over the last ten winters, overall flu vaccine effectiveness has averaged about 46 percent. [A “pig-in-a-poke”?]

Source: above U.S. News report

And yet doctors are incentivized to earn ‘prize money’ for pushing flu vaccines on infants and adults!

Are you aware physicians/MDs even earn “stars” for how many medical tests they prescribe per member, per month for Medicare PRP measures? Page No. 17

How about $250 per service completed for each eligible member providing an MD has reached a 68% target for diabetes type 1 and 2! However, there are exclusions to earning those cash rewards: “Diagnosis of gestational or steroid-induced diabetes, in any setting, during 2015 or 2016 …” [Page 18], which means diabetes during pregnancy or prescription steroid-induced diabetes! Did you know steroids can give you diabetes? Would that fall under the category of “iatrogenesis” [3]? Here are the top ten steroids prescribed.

If a doctor achieves 75% target, then he/she will receive $100 per service completed for each eligible member for controlling hypertension (high blood pressure). Page No. 20 Is that why some patients can be taking as many as three blood pressure meds at the same time?

How ironic! The medical profession years ago was so anxious to promote cigarette smoking in advertisements of the 1940s [2], but now MDs can earn $30 per Smoking/Tobacco Cessation counseling for each eligible member. Page No. 23

How much did the tobacco companies pay MDs for their ‘testimonials’? Subsequently, that tobacco industry-medical profession grave scientific and medical mistake is referred to as ‘tobacco science’.

    

In my opinion, medical professionals, who huckster their credentials as MDs did with tobacco use, need to be taken less seriously as to how much they really know about medical science and biochemistry. Essentially, are some con-artists?


Comment: Ignoring vaccine safety questions – are doctors being trained to manipulate patients?

This new strategy has been featured in several recent news magazines sent to all pediatricians and was unveiled at the Confronting Vaccine Resistance Conference in New York, hosted by Senator Pan (D-California) and Dr. Offit (creator of the rotavirus vaccine). They’ve determined that pediatricians who capitalize on the emotion of the doctor-patient relationship may be more successful in persuading parents who won’t follow the full vaccine protocol to change their mind.

All the above may seem incredulous to parents, especially those with vaccine-injured children, as to why pediatricians and family physicians push vaccines so rabidly. Well, nothing explains the unconscionable reasoning and actions physicians take regarding mandating vaccines than the old adage:

Follow the money”! And here’s proof!

Blue Cross Blue Shield Pays Your Doctor A $40,000 Bonus For Fully Vaccinating 100 Patients Under The Age of 2

If your pediatrician recommends that your child under the age of 2 receive the flu vaccine-even though the flu vaccine has never been studied in very young children and evidence suggests that the flu vaccine actually weakens a person’s immune system over the long term-ask yourself: Is my doctor more concerned with selling me vaccines to keep my child healthy or to send his child to private school? [CJF emphasis] Source

Let’s add to that one more obvious criterion-out of many-why vaccines are pushed as the best ‘health’ preventive measure ever invented. Vaccines fall under the purview of the U.S. military, which drives the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which owns numerous vaccine patents.

According to Sayer Ji of Green Med Info:

There are CDC patents applicable to vaccines for Flu, Rotavirus, Hepatitis A, HIV, Anthrax, Rabies, Dengue fever, West Nile virus, Group A Strep, Pneumococcal disease, Meningococcal disease, RSV, Gastroenteritis, Japanese encephalitis, SARS, Rift Valley Fever, and chlamydophila pneumoniae.

There is a CDC patent for “Nucleic acid vaccines for prevention of flavivirus infection,” which has applications in vaccines for Zika, West Nile virus, Dengue fever, tick-borne encephalitis virus, yellow fever, Palm Creek virus, and Parramatta River virus.

CDC also has several patents for administering various”shots” via aerosol delivery systems for vaccines.

There’s a CDC patent on a process for vaccine quality control by “quantifying proteins in a complex preparation of uni- or multivalent commercial or research vaccine preparations.”

There’s a CDC patent on a method “for producing a model for evaluating the antiretroviral effects of drugs and vaccines.” [4]

Here’s what every person needs to factor into the U.S. medical/health insurance system and its pervasive cult or religious-like belief regarding vaccines, which are nothing short of neurotoxic cocktails pumped into infants, toddlers, teens, adults and seniors:

The average American pediatrician has 1546 patients, though some pediatricians see many more. The vast majority of those patients are very young, perhaps because children transition to a family physician or stop visiting the doctor at all as they grow up. As they table above explains, Blue Cross Blue Shield pays pediatricians $400 per fully vaccinated child. If your pediatrician has just 100 fully-vaccinated patients turning 2 this year, that’s $40,000. Yes, Blue Cross Blue Shield pays your doctor a $40,000 bonus for fully vaccinating 100 patients under the age of 2. If your doctor manages to fully vaccinate 200 patients, that bonus jumps to $80,000. (Source: CongitiveTruths.com)

Healthcare consumers, it’s not about health; apparently it’s about follow the money, even if it harms innocent children and adults! Please consider all the above as only one of the reasons why U.S. healthcare and health insurance cost so damn much.
