[Information control is essential to keep the vaccine industry afloat, and secrecy if they can get away with it, using spurious excuses such as patient or manufacturer confidentiality.  This is why they keep secret all vaccine reactions if they can get away with it ---otherwise you would find out the MMR vaccine was killing way more children than measles (see) would be doing now with or without it, only found out by FOIA.  All of the dead dodgy Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation decisions are kept secret (eg smallpox vax contract, 2004) and they refuse to reveal them--the racket would fall apart otherwise.]

[2011 May] A Senate Bill To Unseal Secret Pharma Documents  “What’s sealed is often critical public health information that, when revealed, saved lives and could save lives in the future. The conduct of pharmaceutical companies has clearly not been changed by anything that’s happened. It’s never been clear to me, at all, why any of the information claimed as a trade secret is a trade secret. The drugs are patented. The method of making the drugs are also often patented, and thus are in the public domain. So the main things they claim as trade secrets are medical information that shows the companies know the drugs harm people and don’t want people to know. While it may hurt their business, the fact that the same information may be hurting patients using their drug or devices should take priority over their trade secrets.
    “The other documents show how they conduct off label marketing, which is illegal, and induce the use of their drugs by paying bribes and kickbacks. These are not legitimate trade secrets in that all of the companies are aware of these methods and many of them use the same methods. Many made settlements or pled guilty to off-lablel marketing, so it’s hard to argue such methods are trade secrets, since these are well known to the industry.
    “Essentially, they’re claiming the specific methods they use to lie, cheat or steal, are trade secrets, since the drugs and health studies they use to support their methods are public information. For example, many companies pled guilty to misrepresenting the benefits of their drugs. Those are lies. Many companies have been caught cheating in their marketing. And many companies have been caught stealing by overcharging federal and state entities for their drugs. It’s akin to a bank robber claiming that his technique for cracking locks on safes is a trade secret.”

[2010 Nov] Secret documents show benzos cause brain damage by Hilary Butler  While someone got to see the secret documents about benzos, we will never see any secret documents about vaccines, because being the Holy Grail and the part of the drug industry with the most expansion potential in the future, documents relating to vaccines will have  been destroyed or marked "Hidden in perpetuity".  In my opinion, the turning down of benzo research proposals by the British Medical Research council, had nothing to do with the two Professor's research proposals not meeting application criteria, but everything to do with "following the money".  

[2010 Nov] Drugs linked to brain damage 30 years ago  Secret documents reveal that government-funded experts were warned nearly 30 years ago that tranquillisers that were later prescribed to millions of people could cause brain damage.  The Medical Research Council (MRC) agreed in 1982 that there should be large-scale studies to examine the long-term impact of benzodiazepines after research by a leading psychiatrist showed brain shrinkage in some patients similar to the effects of long-term alcohol abuse.  However, no such work was ever carried out...

[2009 Nov] Silence about Vaccine Deaths in Media is Due to the Confidential Contracts with Vaccine Manufacturers  we advised the Belgian Government last Friday in court that this is a disguised pharmaceutical trial on human subjects, with real risks involved. ......the maker of PandemRix, that is used in Sweden, passed a secret contract, the same in every European country, which specified a "Green List" of what the government MAY communicate (hardly anything!) and the "Red List" of what may absolutely NOT be made public, like intermediary results of the side effects that appear in the studies of the controversial squalene (and thiomersal) adjuvantated PandemRix until they have been sanitized by Glaxo Smith Kline researchers, and published by GSK themselves.
....These contracts also confirm what was announced in Sweden in October, that these pandemic vaccines where actually ordered already back in 2006: there was a standing order to foresee a vaccination for large parts of the population IF the WHO would declare a PANDEMIC of degree 6.
....What I found mind boggling, as a doctor, is to discover Glaxo Smith Kline's "Green List" of what the government MAY communicate (hardly anything!) and the "Red List" of what may absolutely NOT be made public, like intermediary results of the side effects that appear in the studies of the controversial squalene (and thiomersal) adjuvantated PandemRix until they have been sanitized by GSK, and published by GSK themselves.

[2009 June] Justices should be seen to be done disciplining and even sacking of judges must remain a state secret unless the government chooses to release the information.....The initial decision to protect judges from having their misconduct disclosed was made by the previous lord chancellor, Charles Falconer (so much for his claim to have been a champion of openness), and the decision to waste public money by fighting the Guardian tooth and nail was made by Jack Straw, the justice secretary, who has evidently learned nothing from the MPs' expenses debacle.

Department of Defense and Health and Human Services regulations permit the administration of experimental drugs and vaccines to U.S. military personnel without informed consent. In contravention of the principles memorialized in the Nuremberg Code, the administration of Invesigational New Drugs (INDs) can be done covertly, in clinical trials that are classified. This is stated in unclassified documents issued by the Department of Defense and Department of Health and Human Services. [2006] Formation of Cysts from Squalene Adjuvant?

Parliamentary Ombudsman Investigations Completed July 2003 - June 2004 Department of Health Refusal to provide information about the awarding of a contract to supply a stock of smallpox vaccine
Ms Branigan originally asked DoH for a number of pieces of information relating to the awarding of a contract to PowderJect Technologies PLC to supply a stock of smallpox vaccine. She then asked 17 Government Departments, including DoH, for information relating to contacts between their respective Ministers and representatives of PowderJect. Finally, she asked DoH for several pieces of information relating to the work of the sub- group of the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation, which had given advice on the choice of the particular smallpox vaccine strain. DoH declined to release most of the information sought by Ms Branigan and cited a number of code exemptions in justification. After a protracted investigation, beset by DoH delays, the Ombudsman recommended that almost all the information sought by Ms Branigan be released. Following a further exchange of correspondence, DoH agreed to the release of information which had already entered the public domain but either refused to address the remaining recommendations or refused to release the information recommended for disclosure. The Ombudsman criticised the manner in which DoH had handled Ms Branigan's information requests and for their failure to engage effectively with her own investigation.
.......In respect of the letter of 29 May 2002, DoH: have continued to refuse to confirm the identities of the second and third members of the JCVI sub-group even though the identity of the second member is already in the public domain ; have refused to release the names of the organisations to whom the other members of the sub-group belonged, and have apparently refused to release the information contained in the document headed 'Main Points', which summarises that meeting.

 The Chairman reminded  members that the proceedings,  papers, and information before them were confidential and should not be disclosed. Joint Committee on Adverse Reactions Minutes1986-1992

Some years ago much was made of two deaths from measles in Dublin. I tracked down the cases and found both children were already seriously ill before they contracted measles. But I was able to find this out only because of the openness of the Irish authorities. When a measles death was reported in Britain a few months ago, I was refused further information on the phoney grounds of 'confidentiality'. I was not planning to reveal the child's identity - only his general medical state - and the officials involved knew this.  Creepier still was the carefully organised and mysterious attempt to scare me in to silence by sending me phoney letters from non-existent mothers claiming their children had nearly died because of my columns. Supposedly, the invented mothers had not given their children the MMR because they had read my articles, and the fictional children had then been seriously ill.

"Every time you hear of the tragic death of an infant, carried off in the first weeks of life by ‘viral meningitis’, you have the right to suspect that BCG is at work, even if the autopsy confirms a viral diagnosis. My wife lived through this tragedy in a major Swiss hospital where she worked. The autopsy of the child revealed the tubercular nature of the ‘viral’ meningitis following a BCG inoculation, but all the assistants and nurses had received very clear instructions to say nothing or risk terrible consequences. As with all secret societies, the law of silence is absolute among doctors!"--Dr Jean Elmiger (Rediscovering Real Medicine ISBN 1862041997)

[2008] Key realities about autism, vaccines, vaccine-injury compensation, Thimerosal, and autism-related research----Gary S. Goldman, Ph.D & P.G. King PhD.  The propaganda dispensed by Public health care and vaccine apologists is, at best, a weak attempt to rationalize the healthcare establishment’s positions using all the tools of doublespeak or, as George Orwell’s called it in his book 1984, “newspeak”, to: (a) mislead, (b) distort reality, (c) pretend to communicate, (d) make the bad seem good, (e) avoid and/or shift responsibility, (f) make the negative appear positive, (g) create a false verbal map of the world, and (h) create dissonance between reality and what their narrative said or did not say.
Such propaganda often relies on half-truths and/or superficially logical, but foundationally flawed, phrasing. However, this propaganda is fundamentally flawed and based on pseudo-science or non-reviewable statistical studies of medical records, where, contrary to ethical science, the study design, data selection/rejection criteria, exact approach used to evaluate the data, and/or the original data itself are kept confidential making independent evaluation/verification of the published findings impossible.
