Author accuses government of genocidal agenda:
Presentation on vaccines held in Gillette
By Eric R. Wright
Star-Tribune staff writer
Gillette--The greatest lie ever told is that vaccines are safe and effective, according to author Dr. Len Horowitz.
That was the message more than 50 people heard Saturday during Horowitz's presentation at the Campbell County Public Library.
In his presentation, titled "Emerging Viruses and Vaccinations: Are The New Auto-Immune Diseases Putting You and Your Family At Risk?", Horowitz accused the federal government of spreading epidemics, including AIDS, through experimental and sometimes mandatory vaccinations.
"This is a genocidal agenda," Horowitz said of the Hepatitis-B and other vaccination programs.
Six children from the nearby town of Hulett are being home-schooled as a result of their parents' refusal to have them inoculated with the Hepatitis-B vaccine, according to Jonathan Saturen, publisher of the Crook County Sentinel and one of the parents who is boycotting the shots.
"I'm not a doctory," Saturen said. "He (Horowitz) is. "He is validating our boycott. We want more people informed on this," Saturen said.
Horowitz, who holds a doctorate in dentistry and has training in internal medicine, began researching virus/vaccine-related health issues in 1990.
He began the slide show and lecture by referring to prophesies in the Bible, which he said foretold of a time when plagues will cover the world.
That time has come, he said, and "It's time for the truth to be revealed."
He then referred his listeners to government documents, reprinted in his book, "Emerging Viruses: AIDS & Ebola--Nature, Accident, or Intentional?"that, he said, link several different epidemics in the United States and the world to military and civilian cancer and virus research directives--begun as early as 1962.
He blamed these alleged man-made viruses, and the professional health-care community's lack of knowledge about them, on pharmaceutical companies, the government, the military and other world powers.
One research, Dr. Maurice Hilleman -- the 1997 recipient of the Sabin Gold Medal of Honor Award by President Clinton -- admitted on tape, according to Horowitz, that the AIDS virus was brought to North America in contaminated monkeys to be used in viral research.
Vaccines produced from those studies most plausibly initiated the AIDS epidemic in New York City's homosexual males, Horowitz added.
To further substantiate those claims, Horowitz turned again to government documents that he said proved the U.S. military administered an experimental AIDS vaccine to soldiers without their knowledge or consent in 1989-90.
Impurities in the vaccine caused what has become known as "The Gulf War Syndrome," he said.
In the second half of his presentation, Horowitz answered audience questions -- including how parents can remain exempt from so-called "mandatory" vaccinations.
The Bible, he said, includes passages that tell its readers not to contaminate the blood or mix the seed.
So, when asked by health-care providers "if your children have been vaccinated?," he said "tell them, thanks, they're all taken care of in that regard.
"If that doesn't work, you can lie. Or, do what I do, (and use) spiritual or religious exemption," he said.
In reaction to the state Department of Health's mandatory Hepatitis-B vaccinations, state Sen. Bill Barton, R-Upton, has introduced legislation that will allow parents to choose whether they want their children to receive the shots.
"I'm convinced that there should be a philosophical objection to these mandatory vaccinations," Barton said. Saturen added, "We're just trying to save kids from needless misery."

Wyoming Governor Faces Anti-Vaccine Activists:
Health Lawmakers Charged with Civil Rights Violations
GILLETTE, WY - The 1998 Wyoming gubernatorial race is heating up, as is the central political issue-citizens' rights to choose their health practices and practitioners. In recent weeks, a rapidly growing grassroots movement has captured bipartisan attention, and pressured legislators around the state, including Governor Geringer, and Democratic challenger John Vinich, to answer the peoples' demands for religious and philosophical vaccine exemptions; without persecution and threatened access to schools and workplaces. Also, restricted access to doctors whose treatments go beyond the traditional, even when traditional medicine has failed, is "deplorable" according to political activists leading the charge. Local groups, working with two national consumer advocacy organizations, have scheduled an upcoming "Town Hall Meeting" in Casper to discuss and debate the issues.
Overwhelming evidence has shown that vaccine programs have spread epidemics such as AIDS and Gulf War Syndrome, said Dr. Leonard Horowitz- a central figure in the vaccine debate, and the National Health Federation's legislative committee chairperson-at a meeting held last weekend in Gillette.
Wyoming's Governor, meanwhile, has stood firmly by public health officials as they continue to force people against their wills and religious beliefs to get vaccinated. Even as hundreds of thousands have died from vaccine induced injuries in recent years, vaccine advocates, like state epidemiologist Dr. Gayle Miller, continue to claim the potential injury rate is "very, very, very, very very, small."
"Public health 'authorities' have nothing to back up their vaccine safety claims. They still haven't done the research showing they're not killing and maiming more people than they are helping and saving with all the 'required' vaccines," Dr. Horowitz asserted. Countless vaccine injury related maladies such as autism, sudden infant death (SIDS), multiple sclerosis (MS), cancers and even cases of immune system related diabetes kill or maim hundreds of thousands of people annually in the United States alone. Vaccine advocates never stop to realize that these maladies are coming from the very vaccines they claim are beneficial.
"The central issue continues to be the right to choose vaccines or not," said Jonathan Saturen, publisher of the Crook County Sentinel, and one of many parents forced to remove a child from school rather than submit to the hepatitis B vaccine program.
Also, citizens' rights to access alternative heathcare providers, and vitally important nutritional supplements, are being eliminated at the same time risky vaccines are given, consumer advocates object. "Drs. Painter and Johnson are the latest victims being persecuted for theirbeliefs and use of simple detoxification therapies," Mr. Saturen added.
In response to these issues, State Senator Bill Barton and Representative Carolyn Pasenquix are presently working on vaccine legislation to return the philosophical exemption right to state citizens. They also say they intend to limit, what citizens' groups say is "misplaced 'public health' authority." The legislators have been particularly concerned about recent vaccine-related news stories. Last week, France suspended mandatory hepatitis B vaccines as authorities learned they may be a primary cause of multiple sclerosis. The week before, the U.S. Army changed its forced anthrax vaccine policy allowing for religious and medical exemptions.
In spite of these headlines, Mr. Saturen added, "Governor Geringer and the Wyoming Medical Board continue to disregard facts, violate civil rights, and victimize innocent doctors and school children."
On Monday night, October 26, 1998, a pre-election "Town Hall Meeting" will be held in Casper at the Parkway Plaza from 7 to 10PM. Confirmed guests include Dr. Horowitz who, earlier this year, debated top CDC andFDA vaccine officials. He has offered to openly discuss and debate these critical issues with the Governor and state public health officials at this special meeting sponsored by the National Health Federation, the National Health Education and Political Action Initiative, and several Wyoming businesses and citizens.

Health Officials: Vaccinations Save Lives
By Bill Luckett
Star-Tribune staff writer
CASPER -- Two Wyoming health officials said Monday that, despite one author's assertions, vaccinations save lives and do a great deal more good than harm to public health.
Dr. Gayle Miller, the state epidemiologist, and Natrona County Disease Prevention Clinic Director Tia Hansuld said vaccines have nearly eradicated diseases such as polio and have a direct impact on preventing outbreaks of other diseases.
"Anyone who says that vaccines do not have impact obviously does not understand the issue, or they have an agenda of their own," Miller said. "How can they possibly explain the fact that people in the field . . . are vaccinating their own kids? Do they honestly believe that every physician in the country hates their children and they're going to do them harm?"
Miller and Hansuld discussed the benefits of vaccinations two days after about 50 people attended a speech in Gillette by the author of a book that claims the government is spreading disease through vaccine programs.
Len Horowitz accused the federal government of having a "genocidal agenda" and urged people to boycott immunization programs.
Contrary to Horowitz' assertions, vaccinations have been proven to save lives and prevent diseases, according to Miller and Hansuld.
"I think they (children) should be vaccinated," Hansuld said. "We're kind of living in an age where we've forgotten what these diseases do to people."
Miller, who recently visited India, said she witnessed first hand what diseases do to people in countries that do not have effective vaccination programs like exist in the United States.
"In India, you routinely see polio everywhere, or evidence of its effects," Miller said. "You don't see that in the U.S."
She said she is concerned that people might take Horowitz seriously and refuse to let their children receive vaccinations, as parents of six children in Hulett have done.
In his speech, Horowitz asserted that vaccines are not safe and effective, but Hansuld said they are tremendously safe and effective but not perfect.
"No vaccine is 100 percent safe and effective," she said. But she described the potential of a vaccine harming someone as "very, very, very, very, very small" compared to their potential for doing good.
"Two or three kids across the world have a serious reaction to a vaccine," Hansuld said.
She said some people may experience minor, harmless reactions such as redness or swelling on their bodies where they received the shot.
Other people may have allergies to certain vaccines, she said, but those people are screened prior to receiving the vaccinations.
Miller said people who don't let their children receive vaccinations may be risking the lives of not only their children but the neighbors' children, too.
Letter to the editor of the Casper Star-Tribune
October 8, 1998
I would like to respond to your article "Health officials: Vaccinations save lives" (Wed. Oct. 7) wherein public health officials, Dr. Gayle Miller, and Nurse Tia Hansuld, slandered me and deceived the public.
I find it interesting that, according to this article, my official title is limited to "author". In fact, between 1990 and 1993 I trained doctors and nurses, including public health professionals like Dr. Miller and Ms. Hansuld, on OSHA regulations, including the benefits of vaccinations. My doctorate in medical dentistry from Tufts University and my Master of Public Health degree from Harvard University was omitted.
Dr. Miller is quoted as saying, "Anyone who says that vaccines do not have an impact obviously does not understand the issues, or they have an agenda of their own."
My "agenda" is to tell the truth. Like the fact that, according to Centers for Disease Control (CDC) statistics, as many as 800,000 vaccine induced injuries have occurred every year in the United States since 1990.
Thus, vaccines obviously have a negative impact far beyond Ms. Hansuld's statement that "Two or three kids across the world have a serious reaction to a vaccine."
Miller and Hansuld also falsely claim that vaccines are good for the public's health.
That is precisely what physicians learned and shared with their patients years ago regarding cigarette smoking.
Since the 1920s, virtually all continuing medical and public health education is funded by pharmaceutical companies. In fact, today, the FDA can't even tell health scientists the truth about vaccine contaminants and their likely effects. The agency is bound and gagged by proprietary laws and non-disclosure agreements forced upon them by the pharmaceutical industry. Let us not forget that the pharmaceutical industry, as a special interest group, is the number one contributor to politicians on Capital Hill--where I spent last Monday educating legislators regarding these issues.
Ms. Hansuld said the likelihood of vaccine injury is "very, very, very, very, very small" compared to their potential for doing good.
Hogwash. Ask her to produce the supportive evidence. She won't be able to because CDC and FDA officials can't produce it either. My two previous meetings with top vaccine officials, from these agencies, proved that definitive risk/benefit analyses are lacking. In essence, vaccines may be killing and maiming far more people than they are helping and saving.
Miller and Hansuld alleged that vaccinations have been proven to save lives and prevent diseases. Again they lack definitive evidence to back up this claim. What they are referring to are limited studies, conducted by heavily funded (paid off and biased) investigators, and limited cost/benefit analyses. Such "scientific" studies, for instance, claim that for thirty cents invested on a shot, the government might save as much as $1.50 in health care costs. Closer scrutiny of the methods used to develop this conclusion shows not all the costs are considered.
Nurse Hansuld claimed, "We're kind of living in an age where we've forgotten what these [infectious] diseases do to people [who are not vaccinated.]" What about the new autoimmune, neurological, and cancer epidemics, ravaging our family, friends and children today, Ms. Hansuld? Perhaps she hasn't read of the scientific articles linking vaccinations and illnesses including: multiple sclerosis (MS), Guillean Barré, fibromyalgia, lupus, ALS, type 1 diabetes in juveniles and adults, sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), meningitis, rheumatoid arthritis, asthma, allergies, AIDS, autism, attention deficit and hyperactivity disorders, Gulf War Syndrome, and a variety of cancers including lymphomas, sarcomas, and leukemias.
Furthermore, if vaccines are so effective, why would Dr. Miller caution that "people who don't let their children receive vaccinations may be risking the lives of not only their children, but their neighbors' children, too?" The fact is, that if vaccines, given en masse as they are, worked as well as Miller claims, then your neighbors' children shouldn't have to worry, now should they?
Indeed, fear is a wonderful manipulative tool too often abused by "public health officials." Another reason for citizens to demand, and law makers to pass, philosophical and religious vaccine exemption legislation, to prevent threatened access to schools and workplaces, loss of jobs, or other persecution for refusing vaccines.
Finally, my statement that vaccinations "are not a public health agenda, they are a genocidal agenda" should not be taken out of context. Otherwise my message might be marginalized to what public health officials like to believe is a "foolish conspiracy theory." Recently deceased (on Flight 111) Dr. Jonathan Mann left his World Health Organization post, as AIDS czar, in protest. Like me, he argued that far more than a medical/scientific issue, AIDS is a socio-political problem. Dr. Mann, a fellow Harvard faculty member, was well aware of my work.
Genocide is defined in Webster's as "the deliberate and systematic destruction of a racial, political, or cultural group." Today, in America, 75 percent of AIDS cases are Black and Hispanic. AIDS I prove in my book, "Emerging Viruses: AIDS and Ebola" most plausibly evolved out of the Merck pharmaceutical company's hepatitis B vaccine trials on gay men in New York City and Blacks in Central Africa. Today, the largest vaccine maker, Merck--a company with direct financial and administrative ties to Hilter's Third Reich and America's biological weapons industry--is also a leading proponent and principle funding source for world population reduction.
Conflicts of interest aside, Merck's top vaccine developer, Dr. Maurice Hilleman's tape recorded admission of having brought the AIDS virusto North America in monkeys destined for vaccine research and development at Merck, should be investigated by scientists, citizens, and legislators alike.
I look forward to discussing these issues further with Wyoming's citizens, legislators, and public health officials at the upcoming Town Hall Meeting in Casper on Monday night, Oct. 26 from 7-10PM at the Parkway Plaza.
