TOP ITALIAN SCIENTIST PUNCHED IN THE FACE BY VACCINE MAFIA

Dr. Stefano Montanari, PandoraTV

Dr. Stefano Montanari was punched in the face by a vaccine thug while talking to parents of vaccine-injured children. Previously, Dr. Montanari and his wife Dr. Antonietta Gatti did research finding that vaccines are contaminated by micro-and-nanoparticles. Their laboratory was already raided and their materials have been seized. He writes in a desperate letter to the United States below:

While I was cordially talking with these people, suddenly, for no apparent reason, a gentleman came up behind me shouting “Don’t dare raise your voice!” I turned my head and, in a fraction of a second, unexpectedly, he hit me with a violent punch between my ear and my cheekbone. For a moment I lost my senses and I was supported by those around me, while the character was moving away, crossing my wife who, meanwhile, was coming out on the sidewalk. To her, that gentleman shouted a death threat.

What Dr. Montanari describes is coming to America. Scientists here have been targeted for their research on vaccinations. A doctor has received a death threat from someone who said he plans to massacre anti-vaccinationists, and the FBI blamed her. It’s only a matter of time until what happened to Dr. Montanari starts happening in America.

Other disturbing issues in the letter are signs that the government will renege on its promise to overturn mandatory vaccination law. The Minister of the Interior Matteo Salvini made statements supporting Dr. Montanari, only to face a full-out assault by the fake news media and political elite. God bless Minister Salvini for putting Italians first!

ADNKRONOS (ITALY): “The controversy on vaccines breaks out”

Matteo Salvini, AFP

Translated from Italian

The controversy about the vaccines explodes after the declarations of the Minister of the Interior Matteo Salvini. “I believe that 10 mandatory vaccines are useless and in many cases harmful and dangerous”, said the Viminale owner in his telephone speech this morning at Radio Studio 54, triggering a series of reactions. “On vaccines” – he added – “I guarantee the commitment already made in the electoral campaign to allow all children to enter the classroom. But we are two in the government, there is an alliance with the M5S and I’m reasoning with the Minister of Health Grillo.”

DI MAIO FRENA – Commenting on the statements of Salvini, the Deputy Premier Luigi Di Maio explained: “The contract speaks very clearly : we want to review the Lorenzin decree but in the sense of simply being able to ensure a vaccination protection to people and especially children.” Then – he added – “everyone has their opinion on vaccines, you know ours.”

THE POLITICS WITH BURIONI – Among those who commented on the words of Salvini is the doctor and scientific writer Roberto Burioni. “No, Minister Salvini, ten vaccines” – he wrote in a tweet then retweeted by former Prime Minister Renzi – “are not useless and even less harmful, in fact they protect you, your children and your voters, this is a very dangerous lie from someone who is responsible for the security of my country. It is very troubling. The ones I report” – they have underlined – “are supported by very solid scientific data.”

Salvini’s car arrived just around the corner. “I vaccinated my children” – he said – “Some vaccines save lives, ten vaccines for some children are useless and some dangerous, so I am not a ‘No Vax’ and there are many documented adverse reactions.” Burioni compared that to other fellow doctors who think the exact opposite of Salvini. “I believe that the health of the children is up to the mother and father” – added Salvini – “and then some vaccines are essential, too many vaccines are likely to hurt. No child can be excluded from school and from kindergarten. This is a program in the League, this is in the government contract. Then professors confront each other over God’s charity. I have had my children vaccinated” – Salvini concluded  – “thank God they’re all right. From measles we must save ourselves, other vaccines seem absolutely superfluous.”

THE MINISTER OF HEALTH COMES – Health Minister Giulia Grillo clarified: “We will take the appropriate decisions in accordance with the government allies, but clearly this is an issue that must first be discussed by the Ministry of Health.” And she stressed: “All the controversy is only instrumental and aimed at creating a media circus that I do not care about.” “I want to reiterate once again” – the minister continued – “and I will never tire of repeating it, that vaccines are a fundamental tool for primary health prevention, and that political discussions are only the best ways to offer them to the population. ”

“We are working” – she explained – “to find the best solution on the one hand to guarantee the attendance of children in kindergartens and on the other side place the revision of the Lorenzin law decree at the center of the parliamentary debate”. “We are pleased” – she added – “that the Minister of the Interior is interested in such an important issue, as well as the Minister of Education. I just want to clarify that the obligation is a political argument, which has to do with a strategy of political type, but scientific evaluations” – she concluded – “do not compete with politics “.

Salvini responded to Minister Grillo: “Hers is the competence on vaccines, I share her thoughts, we will stick to that and the government contract”. “To me too, as a father and a minister” – he added – “the health of children is at heart and that everyone is guaranteed access to the nursery, the kindergarten and the following classes. The idea is that it is better to educate  than to oblige. We are working on it. The important thing” – he concluded – “is that in September all children can enter the classroom.”

THE POSITION OF THE ISS – The Higher Institute of Health also intervenes. “In the event that the vaccination programs stop, the vaccine- preventable diseases would come back,” they underline, taking up in a footnote the statements of the World Health Organization. “Even if better hygiene, hand-washing and clean water help protect against infectious diseases, these diseases” – the Institute president Walter Ricciardi said – “can be spread regardless of the level of hygiene.” “Don’t vaccinate, and in a short time” – he warned – “diseases that were infrequent would appear again, such as diphtheria, pertussis, measles, mumps.”

Travis Allen – A Loss at The Polls, A Victory Against Vaccine Mandates

The California gubernatorial primary was a disappointment, but not a loss. Assemblyman Travis Allen did not get the endorsement he deserved from the president and did not win the gubernatorial primary. Yet Assemblyman Allen won a victory for opponents of mandatory vaccination by becoming the first gubernatorial candidate in the nation’s largest state to come out forcefully against vaccine mandates. The remaining Republican candidate will need Allen’s supporters for any chance at victory in November, and the tide isn’t just turning in America.

Italy just confirmed a new government opposed to the draconian vaccine mandates signed into law last year.

In Poland, thousands have just taken to the streets to march for International Day Against Vaccinations as seen in the below viral video. To be honest, Autism Investigated had not heard of such a day but will be observing it annually from here on out.

We will not allow the state to take away our right to resist toxic vaccines produced by the dishonest people who make them. Not now, not ever.

BREAKING: Italy’s New Government Opposes Mandatory Vaccination Law

The editor predicted that Italy’s new mandatory vaccination law will fuel a populist backlash to the ruling class, writing in The Epoch Times nine months ago:

The voters who elected Trump and rejected Clinton knew where both candidates stood on vaccinations. Similarly, Italian voters will head to the ballots in next year’s election knowing that Italy’s populists stood up for their vaccine exemption rights while Italy’s Democrats stripped them away.

The Italian people made their voices heard by voting the populists into power and voting the ruling Partito Democratico into minority status. Autism Investigated concluded:

Yesterday’s election outcome just astronomically raised the likelihood that the Lorenzin Law will soon be discarded to the ash heap of history.

That likelihood now looks like virtual certainty with the swearing in of Italy’s new government and a new health minister opposed to the mandatory vaccination law. Age of Autism Europe editor John Stone writes:

After months of negotiations Italian have finally managed to form a government based on the Five Star Movement and the Northern League both of whom were opposed to vaccine mandates piloted by Beatrice Lorenzin and the previous center left government –  the new Health Minister, Giulia Grillo, is “In favor of vaccines, but against Lorenzin’s law“.

Lorenzin has left the government. Her law will soon follow.

ITALY ELECTION: The Populists Decimate The Political Establishment

Read TIME’s recent piece “How Anti-Vaxxers Could Help Decide Italy’s Election” and the editor’s August 2017 article in The Epoch Times entitled “Italy’s New Mandatory Vaccine Law Will Fuel a Populist Backlash.” 

A populist-led coalition and a populist political party have collectively amassed 70% of the vote in Italy’s Sunday election. The populist Northern League (Lega Nord) now leads a coalition of right-wing parties which in turn now have the highest share of seats in the country’s parliament. The populist 5 Star Movement (Movimento 5 Stelle/M5S) now controls more seats than any other party. Last year, both Lega Nord and M5S unanimously opposed a new law mandating 12 vaccinations for Italian schoolchildren but did not have enough seats to defeat it.

Now they do.

In contrast, the once-dominant Partito Democratico that overwhelmingly passed the new law failed to even gain a fifth of the vote. Its leader Matteo Renzi has just resigned in humiliation. He previously resigned as prime minister in 2016 over a failed constitutional referendum. Now in 2018, populist leaders Matteo Salvini of Lega Nord and Luigi Di Maio of M5S are vying to run Italy.

Regardless of who the next prime minister will be, opponents of the mandatory vaccination law (nicknamed the “Lorenzin Law” after Italy’s health minister Beatrice Lorenzin) now dominate the government. The prime minister must have the confidence of a majority of parliament. Yesterday’s election outcome just astronomically raised the likelihood that the Lorenzin Law will soon be discarded to the ash heap of history.

Autism Investigated Note: Read the editor’s piece for The Epoch Times last summer on how mandatory vaccination will affect Italy’s upcoming election. Ignore the pro-vax tone of the TIME article below.

By TARA JOHN

In late 2015, Italian virologist Roberto Burioni took part in a Q&A with young mothers on a Facebook group and was alarmed to find many of them spouting conspiracy theories about vaccinations. The measles shot, they said, gives children autism.

The 55-year-old decided to take a deeper look online and realized there was an ecosystem of Italian anti-vaccination groups on the social media site. In spring 2016, Burioni sat down, fired up his laptop and began debunking anti-vaccination conspiracy theories on his public Facebook page.

“I started writing because I was fed up of social media being at the hands of people telling lies,” Burioni, who is a professor of microbiology and virology at the Vita-Salute University San Raffaele, Milan, says during a phone interview. “All the voices [online] in Italy were against vaccination. There was no debate and I did what I could to start one.”

Just over two years later that debate has gone from an online feud to a live political issue in the Italian general election due on March 4. As skepticism about vaccines has become widespread in Italy, so-called “anti-vaxxers” have become a voting bloc for the populist parties vying for votes. As a result, two of the leading populist parties — the far-right League (formerly the Northern League) and the anti-establishment Five Star Movement (5SM) — have pledged, if elected, to scrap a law passed in July that made ten vaccinations compulsory for children under the age of 16. If they do, health experts warn it could be a huge step backwards in the global fight for children’s health.

Vaccine skepticism in Italy dates back to a debunked 1998 study by Andrew Wakefield that linked the Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR) shot typically given to children after their first birthday to autism. The discredited idea took hold among an “intellectual fringe” in Italy, says Andrea Grignolio, a medicine historian at the La Sapienza University of Rome. The skeptics tend to be “rich and older parents,” he says, “who are susceptible to both alternative treatments, like homeopathy, and conspiracy theories.”

The waters surrounding the issue of vaccination were muddied further by a 2012 court ruling in the city of Rimini, northeast Italy, that a child’s autism had in fact been caused by the MMR vaccination. The Rimini ruling was overturned in 2015, but the judgement had by then done its damage. According to Grignolio, vaccine skeptics today make up 5% of the population while vaccine hesitancy— which the WHO defines as a “delay in acceptance or refusal of vaccines despite availability of vaccine services”— is estimated to affect a further 10% of Italy’s 60 million-strong population. ‘That’s millions of people,” Grignolio says.

It shouldn’t be a huge surprise, then, that measles has made a troubling comeback in Italy. Cases jumped nearly six-fold from around 870 cases in 2016 to more than 5,000 cases last year. In the last six months of 2017, Italy was ranked sixth-highest worldwide in measles cases after India, Nigeria, the Ukraine and China. The mandatory vaccine legislation, nicknamed the Lorenzin law after the country’s health minister Beatrice Lorenzin, was introduced last year to combat the troubling increase.
