Corrupt Kaine Mandated STD Shot For 6th-Graders After Merck Investment

Crooked Hillary Clinton was just too embarrassed to pick Pocahontas for her running mate, so instead she picked Corrupt Tim Kaine: US Senator from Virginia and self-described “traditional” Catholic. As Governor of Virginia, Kaine signed into law a bill mandating human papillomavirus vaccination (HPV) for 6th-grade girls even though HPV is spread through sexual intercourse. The move came just months after Merck announced it would invest $57 million into its Virginia HPV vaccine facility. Over the years, Merck’s HPV vaccine Gardasil has come under fire for its terrible reputation of lacking in both efficacy and safety.

At the time of Merck’s announced investment, Kaine proclaimed: “This announcement not only increases Merck’s investment in Virginia, it provides a vital vaccine for women’s health.” Such a proclamation is totally devoid of evidence. While the vaccine does prevent HPV infections, it is yet to be determined whether it is actually effective at preventing the cervical cancer that is associated with the virus. The vaccine has also been associated with numerous deaths and debilitating disabilities in young women and girls.

On issues of vaccine safety, the presidential candidates from the two parties already could not be more different. In February 2015 just one day after the president denied vaccine dangers in an NBC interview, Crooked Hillary sent out a tweet belittling vaccine skeptics as being as delusional as denying the color of the sky or the shape of the earth. Then in September, Donald Trump became the very first candidate to speak out about vaccines causing autism in a presidential debate – a stark contrast to Crooked Hillary’s position.

Her selection of Tim Kaine marks not only a contrast of the parties’ presidential nominees, but also of their running mates. Donald Trump’s running mate Indiana Governor Mike Pence was so against an HPV vaccine mandate that he denounced legislation proposed by Democrat politicians last year on suspicion it could lead to a mandate. But when Senator Kaine was governor of Virginia, he signed into law a bill that did just that.

Kaine’s selection for VP by Crooked Hillary also marks a stark contrast between how both parties see vaccine mandates. After former Texas Governor Rick Perry signed into law an HPV vaccine mandate, he was met with scorn and condemnation by almost all his fellow Republican candidates in his 2012 presidential debate debut. He then sank from first place to fifth place in the polls, eventually dropping out after the second contest. But now on the Democrat side, a senator who did the same as governor is about to be nominated for the second-highest office in government.

Unlike the Republican National Convention, the Democratic National Convention will not be live-streamed at Autism Investigated. There is simply no point, unless as Donald Trump put it, “you want to hear the corporate spin, the carefully-crafted lies, and the media myths”.

Gov. Pence – Opponent of Eli Lilly and HPV Vaccine Mandate

“I think it is a decision that’s best left to parents in consultation with their doctors.” – Governor Mike Pence on HPV vaccination

Autism Investigated supports Donald Trump’s choice for running mate Governor Mike Pence. There has been a lot of misinformation spread about Pence, the biggest myth is that his being from Indiana somehow puts him in the pocket of Eli Lilly which is the pharmaceutical company that introduced mercury into children’s vaccinations. Eli Lilly is headquartered in Indianapolis, and did give Governor Pence’s political campaign a ton of money for his election in 2012. It was a cozy relationship, but one that would not last – nor would its termination be the only time he stood up for what he believed in against powerful pharmaceutical interests as he had also taken preemptive steps to oppose mandatory HPV vaccination.

When Governor Pence signed into law Indiana’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act, Eli Lilly and others deemed it “bad for business”, alleging that it was discriminatory against homosexuals and would subsequently drive investment out of the state. But the reality was much more complex than that, as LGBT activists in other parts of the country were suing Christian bakers and putting them out of business for not baking cakes for gay weddings out of devotion to their faith. Pence would obviously not want that trend repeated in his own state, and he signed an amended version of the bill into law despite attempts by Lilly and other powerful donors to kill it. Whether or not one agrees with Pence’s principles, his record suggests it is his principles and not his donors that determine his governing. He has also stood up for his and his constituents’ principles against powerful pharmaceutical interests in his opposition to aggressive state marketing of one notoriously dangerous vaccine for a sexually transmitted disease.

After a bill encouraging HPV vaccination in teenagers was proposed but killed in the Indiana legislature last year, Pence denounced the bill for potentially opening the door to a mandate of the vaccine. Later that year, constituents complained of an intrusive health department notice urging HPV vaccination. Pence stepped in to change the language of the notice to include the fact that the vaccine was not mandatory along with an internet link people could go to if they wanted to opt out of their children’s medical records being used in a state vaccine registry. Once again he was faced with opposition from critics such as the Indiana Democratic Party, but that did not stop him.

Based on his past record, Governor Pence appears to be someone who puts principle before donors and the pharmaceutical industry. Accepting Donald Trump’s offer of running mate is only the latest example, given Trump’s refusal of pharmaceutical money while speaking out about the vaccine-autism connection in the second Republican debate. Governor Pence deserves all the benefit of any lingering doubt, especially when compared to anyone Crooked Hillary Clinton is likely considering for a running mate.
