My wonderful late husband, George Maxwell, MD, was the professor of paediatrics at University of Adelaide. As I recall, he had full faith in childhood vaccination. But if he were alive today and saw the new research on vax, I think he would do a turn-around.
He’d be sad that his teachers at Edinburgh did not tip him off to the fact that Edward Jenner, who fired the first ‘shot’ in 1796, was a con artist. All doctors today stand to be embarrassed by this, but let’s just get the embarrassment over quickly.
As for the visit to Oz of a doctor named Sherri Tenpenny, George would certainly approve of her offering her opinion on vax, even if it were diametrically opposed to his. Isn’t that what science is all about? If her message were harmful, George would be licking his chops at the thought of combatting her ideas.
We Find Out about Our Police from Seppo’s?
Yesteday I wrote a ditty about Tenpenny being “Bound for Botany Bay.” You know, like the convicts’ song “Farewell to the well-known Old Bailey, where I used for to cut such a swell”?) I posted the song at a website known to be very critical of vaccines, namely, ageofautism.com.
To my surprise, an American lady named Jenny Allen responded immediately with specifics about the cancellation of Dr Tenpenny’s Oz tour. It’s worse than I reckoned. Here is what Ms Allen told us:
“It’s very sad Dr Tenpenny has decided to cancel, not only her speaking engagements in Australia, but her planned holiday as well. The venue hosts were being threatened and the organisers could not guarantee the safety of attendees including some young children.
These are threats of violence and thuggery pure and simple. It’s illegal, but the Aussie police plainly don’t want to know, at least when vaccines are being questioned….
Dr. Sherri Tenpenny announced that she has cancelled speaking appearances scheduled for Brisbane, Sydney, Adelaide, Melbourne, and Gold Coast. The reason was due to pro-vaccine extremists calling for violence and making bomb threats against venue owners and their families in some cities. Fellow vaccine lecturer Stephanie Messenger jointly decided to cancel her appearances along with Dr. Tenpenny.” [Emphasis added]
I say again, what’s wrong with the George Maxwell method? Take Tenpenny’s ideas one by one and demolish them if you can. If, instead, you bully her, WE KNOW YOU DO NOT HAVE A SCIENTIFIC COMEBACK FOR HER.
I am ashamed of any physician that doesn’t take “the George approach.” By the way, if you want a free copy of George’s 1984 Oxford U Press book, Principles of Paediatric Pharmacology,” just ask me. But frankly you’d be as well off going to the whale.to website run by John Scudamore in UK, which has all the dirt about Jenner, Robert Gallo, Albert Sabin, and much more.
Blame the Doctors — and Nurses, Too
In regard to vaccines, I don’t join the ageofautism writers in blaming the media and/or the legislature for vaccine-damage to children. I blame the doctors — and nurses, too.
Recall recent Gumshoe articles on the Dr Richard Day revelations of 1969. He ‘prophesied’ that doctors would no longer be independent. Why must docs put up with this takeover by corporations and government? Wasn’t the life of a GP considered very noble, and very personally rewarding?
Old docs should come out of retirement to tell the medical students that they have options. Old nurses should make their thoughts known in this great controversy.
As for the public, they needn’t file lawsuits to get a miscreant doctor struck off the register. They have only to go to the licensing board of their state and file a simple complaint which, by law, MUST be dealt with, and will be dealt with by the disciplinary committee of the profession. And all results are published. Isn’t that nice?
Your complaint does not have to be “He broke my carotid artery.” It can be “He refused to continue to care for my child because I opted out of vax.” Note: in Oz the full Centerlink payments are not payable to mothers unless their children get the full schedule of vaccines.
Botany Bay for the Vaccine-Cautious
Now here is my ditty, which contains the main complaints about “vax.” If you need the tune, go to Youtube for John Williamson’s version of Botany Bay.
I’m Sherri Tenpenny, a doctor,
I hail from the US of A.
They invited me to go on a lecture tour,
So I was bound for Botany Bay.
Chorus: Singing toorali, oorali, addity
Toorali oorali-ayy Singing toorali, oorali, addity
I was bound for Botany Bay.
Then a rumpus broke out in the media
I never made it to Melbourne or Perth,
But is Hep-B an honest necessity
When your child’s just an hour from birth?
Not everyone knows about Jenner
The inventor of vaccine was a fraud,
He caused much more smallpox than he prevented
And it’s like that today, swear to God. Chorus
Some doctors have questioned my sanity
The Gold Coast and Brisbane did, too.
But where is the commonsense in all of this:
Twenty shots before your child reaches two?
Pharmaceuticals provide package inserts
You’ll find them quite shocking, I say.
They admit they’ve done no safety studies!
That’s what I must tell parents today. Chorus
Adelaide thought about cancelling me.
They said “You’re not for freedom of speech.”
I said “That’s true, I am going to Adelaide
Simply to surf at their lovely West Beach.”
Now mind, all ye young dukes and duchesses,
Better listen what I’ve got to say,
Your immune system is the Lord’s handiwork,
It’s got no plans to be going away. Chorus
Note: Readers of the Vaccination chapter in my book “Consider the Lilies” will know that I take a much stronger line than Tenpenny does. I claim the smallpox campaigns of both the 1880s and the WHO-sponsored one around 1978, were out-and-out genocide.
Finally, please see this excellent 4-minute presentation by Sherri Tenpenny. See if you can think of any comeback to the statements she makes about the absurdity of filling a baby on his first day of life with several vaccines:
–– Mary W Maxwell is chillin’ out in Adelaide, getting ready for her Fringe production, which stars Dalia Mae Lachlan in the role of “the lonely Presstitute.” The performances will be at 7.30pm on March 13 and 14. We should live so long?
