Pertussis antibodies transferred during pregnancy may decrease the risk of pertussis infection in the first months of life but interfere with the infant’s ability to produce pertussis antibodies, the clinical significance of which remains unknown. Safety and reactogenicity results were consistent with previous experience.
First the USA invades Iraq claiming it is because of 9/11. A false premise. Then we install a Shite government over the Sunni majority predictably leading to rise of ISIS, a SUNNI revolt. Finally, we order the assassination a Shite general leading to an order for our withdrawal from Iraq by the Shite government. Now we face either withdrawal from Iraq or war with Iran as Iran will surely support the Shite government of Iraq.

In what world is it proper for America to intervene in the internal affairs of the world. What gave America the right to promulgate the interventionist Monroe Doctrine for the Americas and now to intervene globally. Imagine another country announcing a right to intervene with armed forces in America!
Old Tuberculosis Vaccine May Slow Alzheimer’s Progression
BCG vaccination may inhibit dementia severity
December 24th, 2019 – According to a recent study, bladder cancer patients treated with an old tuberculosis vaccine were significantly less likely to develop Alzheimer’s disease (AD) at any age, than patients who were not so treated.
This cancer study’s finding suggests that treating people with the Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) might also reduce the incidence of Alzheimer’s in the general population.
This is potentially important news, since Alzheimer’s affects 10 percent of seniors older than 65 years of age.
Alzheimer’s disease is the most common type of dementia. It is a progressive disease beginning with mild memory loss possibly leading to loss of the ability to carry on a conversation and respond to the environment.

The long history of US border concentration camps…
ALIEN ENEMY DETENTION FACILITY, Crystal City, Texas
(December 12, 1943 – February 11, 1948)
– – – – – – – – – –
While many people are aware of the Japanese-American internment camps, few know about the Crystal City, Texas, Alien Enemy Detention Facility. It was a camp established by “friend of labor,” liberal hero, President Franklin Roosevelt.
The camp imprisoned over 3000 people, mostly of Japanese descent. – but also included those of German and Italian ancestry.
Little known is the fact that the US arranged for families of Japanese, German and Italian descent to be deported by US backed regimes in Latin America for incarceration in the US.
The majority were Japanese-Peruvians, but Roosevelt also had men deported from Bolivia, Columbia Guatemala, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Honduras and Haiti.
Upon arrival in the US, the workers were promptly arrested on the grounds that they had attempted to enter the country illegally!
Wives and children followed the men later — ostensibly as “volunteers,” although most families lacked any alternatives to deportation.
A proposed “prisoner exchange program” (though none of the prisoners were military) became a “repatriation program” in which the majority of families (including many children who had never been to their “home” country) were deported once again to Germany and Japan.
At the end of WWII, the camp still held 3,374 prisoners. 660 Japanese-Peruvians (whose country prohibited them from returning) were simply dumped in Japan.
Some inmates were forced to join thousands of other internees to work as farm laborers in New Jersey.
The Crystal City internment camp was not officially closed until their release on February 11, 1948. They had remained, imprisoned as slaves, for three years after the official end of the war.

Moneygram and Western Union are refusing to send money from Americans to individuals in Gaza. The effect of this policy is to cause starvation and impoverishment of the people of Gaza. It is unclear to me wether the government ban on financial transaction with Gaza explicitly require such a ban of nongovernmental aid to individuals but obviously the American policy has inspired the actions of Western Union and Moneygram. This is another evil face of capitalism. It does unseen violence to innocent people and especially the children of Gaza. Capitalism should not stand and would not if we could all just hear the voices of the downtrodden of the world.
There is currently an epidemic of African Swine Fever and since influenza virus undergoes reassortment in pigs it is possible that a human influenza virus might emerge by this process which may contain the virulence of pig African Swine Flu. There is now a grave epidemic amongst pigs in China and elsewhere in the world. African Swine Flu virus is both virulent and hard to kill . Hence the current epidemic among pigs. Time will tell what this might mean for humans.
