CHAPTER1


Epidemics:FromEV-D68ANDMEASLESto
TUBERCULOSIS

Americaisbeinginvadedbydeadlyviruses.
Some will say I’m an alarmist or I’m a this-ist or a that-ist for making such a provocative
statement.They’rewrong.Theonly“ist”Iamisanepidemiologistbytraining.Thefactofthematter
is, diseases that were either eradicated or previously contained are now threatening you and me—

Becausetheborderismoreporousthanyourgrandmother ’sfloursieve.
For twenty years I’ve been trying to warn America about the dangers and risks associated with
bringing into this country unscreened, unvaccinated immigrants. Today, this lack of vigilance is
causingoutbreaksof“mysterydiseases”andillnessesthroughouttheland.Moreonthatinamoment.
Yousee,Americansonceenjoyedthegreatesthealthandhealthcareonearth.ButbecausetheObama

healthofthecountry—aninfestationorchestratedbytheWhiteHouseforpoliticalreasons.Wenow

Yousee,forcenturiesAmericahashadtheprotectionofhergeographicisolationfromcontagions

with geographic isolation from the viral horrors plaguing the third world. Granted, some diseases
havebeenhereandwereendemic,suchasmalaria,yellowfever,cryptosporidium,andpolio.
Thankfully, advances in modern American medicine snuffed out many such epidemics. Today,
however, a number of previously conquered diseases are being reintroduced because this reckless
Presidentishell-bentonobliteratingourborders.Frankly,Obamahasdoneeverythingbutpersonally
drivenillegalsacrosstheborderinhislimousine.
It’s a well-established fact that our United States Border Patrol agents have been reduced to
“border babysitters” who have been instructed to stand down as hordes of illegals pour over the
southern border. In the process, illegals flood in while our agents are exposed to life-threatening
diseases—andsomearetestingpositiveforvirusesincludingH1N1(swineflu)andchickenpox.A
drug-resistantstrainoftuberculosis(abacterialillness)hasbeenintroducedtoLynn,Massachusetts,
courtesy of Obama’s “kids”—the hordes he brought in last summer from Central America by the

THEBIGCHILL:GOVERNMENTCENSORSHIP
Youmaywonderwhymoreagentsdon’traisethealarmbyspeakingoutagainstthissituation.You
see,membersoftheBorderPatrol,aswellasthemedicalstaffworkingwiththeunvaccinatedillegal
immigrant population, are being threatened with lawsuits, even firings, if they disclose the truth of
what’s going on.2 That’s why they’re silent. Think state-sponsored censorship in the Soviet Union
underStalin.OrChinaunderChairmanMao.
They’vebeenmuzzled.
That same gag order is in effect at a government-run refugee camp housing illegals on the
Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas. According to a Fox News report, “Workers were
stripped of their cellphones and other communication devices. Anyone caught with a phone was
immediatelyfired...childreninthecamphadmeasles,scabies,chickenpoxandstrepthroataswell

Inspiteofthethreatofarrest,ahandfulofmedicalpersonnelwhopreviouslyworkedatLackland

Thinkabouttheimplicationsofwhatshejustsaid.
The insanity gets worse. Did you know that United States congressmen were prevented from
enteringchildimmigrantfacilities6whentheywenttoinvestigatethissurgeofinfectedillegalaliens
racingacrossourbrokenborders?Caseinpoint:RepresentativeJimBridenstine(R-OK)wasbarred
by guards from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), who prevented him from
touring a compound in his state where more than 1,100 children are being warehoused behind
chainedgates.Hefumed,“Whataretheytryingtohide?Dotheynotwantthechildrentospeakwith
membersofCongress?”7
Bridenstinewastoldtomakeanappointmentforthreeweekslater.
Evidently,HHSofficialsareonlycomfortablewithpre-planned,staged,showcasedvisits—much
like what we saw under a certain German regime. Border Agent Cabrera said, “They don’t want
people to know what’s going on here, or for that matter anywhere, when it comes to the surge of
illegalaliensandwhen[Congress]wenttovisit,theplacewasclearedout.”8
WhentheHouseJudiciaryCommitteeChairmanBobGoodlatte(R-VA)andfourothermembersof


Congress attempted to inspect the Rio Grande Valley Sector facility, the temporary home for many
illegal adults and children, the Department of Homeland (In)security (DHS) stonewalled them until
they could clean out the joint. Agent Cabrera described the scene: “The night before the group of
lawmakers arrived the senior supervisors loaded up a couple of hundred people being held in the
sallyport[secureentryway]andshippedthemouttoLaredo.Ifeverythingissofineanddandy,why
notletthelawmakersinjustthewayitis?”9
Whyindeed.ClearlyHHS,DHS,andObamadon’twantyoutoknowwhat’sreallygoingonbehind
closed doors because if the truth were known, the public outcry would be deafening. The sleeping
giant would awaken and demand that this wholesale importation of illegal aliens, many whom are
carryingdiseasesintothiscountry,bestoppedinitstracks.

them the cold, hard proof that things are going badly—they’re not going to listen to you. They
worshipatthealtarofliberalism—thefactsbedamned.
Dr. Jane Orient, an internal medicine specialist, put it this way: “This really should not be a
politicalissue,butratherapublichealthandhumanitarianissue…whenyou’reimporting,say,upto

That prognosis also worries Dr. Elizabeth Lee Vliet who, since 2009, has been studying and

SymptomsofEV-D68rangefromflu-likeindicatorssuchasfever,runnynose,cough,sneezingand

virus may be disseminated when a healthy person touches a surface that has been touched by an
infectedperson.Worse,currentlythereisnoantiviralmedicationtotreatthoseinfected.
NBC News reports that “more than 100 children have since been diagnosed with a side-effect
calledacuteflaccidmyelitisoracuteflaccidparalysis,”adding,“mostdoctorshadn’tseenanything

of another enterovirus called EV-A71 that has been known to occasionally cause paralytic
syndrome.”13
TheCenterforDiseaseControl(CDC)saystheonlywaytoprotectourselvesistopracticeproper
hand washing techniques, as well as avoiding “touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed
hands” or “kissing, hugging, and sharing cups or eating utensils with people who are sick.”14 Of

According to the CDC, “From mid-August to November 12, 2014, CDC or state public health
laboratories have confirmed a total of 1,153 people in 49 states and the District of Columbia with
respiratoryillnesscausedbyEV-D68.”15Asofthiswriting,accordingtotheCDC,14childrenhave
diedfromEV-D68.16Someareparalyzed.Didyouhearaboutthis?
Take, for example, young McKenzie Andersen. NBC News reports this seven-year-old little girl
“caught a cold just before Christmas but became mostly paralyzed from the neck down within 12
days.Shecanwiggleherlefthand,herfeetandusefacialmuscles.”17Hermother,AngieAndersen,is
understandably devastated. She said her daughter “got a cold and now she’s never going to walk

MEASLES:FROMMOUSELANDTOTHEHOMELAND
InDecember2014,DisneylandinAnaheim,California,wasrockedovernightby58newcasesof
the measles. How did The Happiest Place on Earth become the epicenter for a highly contagious
disease that had been largely eliminated from our country back in 2000?23 Within a month of the
outbreak, the CDC was able to determine this outbreak likely originated from a visitor from the
Middle East.24 According to CDC physician Dr. Anne Schuchat, genetic tests of the measles strain
affectingAmericans“aresimilartostrainsseeninIndonesia,Qatar,AzerbaijanandDubai.”25
Ibringupthiscasebecauseitdemonstrateshowquicklyandeffectivelyepidemiologycantracethe


originofdiseases,whenthewillisthere.Thisparticularoutbreakwasmostlikelycausedbyalegal
immigrant visiting the United States legitimately. That means tracing its origin wasn’t politically
dangeroustothepresident.Butwhenoutbreaksofpreviouslyeradicateddiseasesarelikelycausedby
the illegal immigrants Obama has invited into the United States, their origins suddenly become an
impenetrablemystery.
The outbreak of measles originating in Disneyland reached at least 14 states and infected 147
peoplebeforeitwasdeclaredoverlastApril.26Fortunately,noneofthemdied.Butitdemonstrates
how dangerous a single infected person can be. How many more people infected with this disease
crossedourborderstoday?Howcananyrationalpersonconsiderthenextoutbreaktobeanything
otherthaninevitable?
Considerthis.Whilewe’vemanagedtogivemeaslesthebootathome,theCDCestimatesthereare
approximately20millioncasesofmeaslesannually around the world—resulting in 145,000 deaths
each year. All it takes is one of those 20 million infected people entering our country to ignite an
outbreak,asthemeaslesvirusishighlycontagious.Infact,it’soneofthemostcontagiousdiseases
knowntoman.
Forinstance,theviruscanremainairborneforuptotwohours27andlingeronsurfaceswhereit
caneasilyinfectothers.28What’smore,Dr.Schuchatsays,“Youcancatchmeaslesjustbybeinginthe
same room as a person who has measles.”29 Which may explain how France “went from about 40
casesayeartoover10,000cases”30virtuallyovernight.Evenmoretroubling?Youcanbevaccinated
properlyandthere’sstillachanceyoucanbecomeinfected,becausethevaccineisjust97%effective
againstinfection.31That’swhathappenedto4ofthe58peopleatDisneylandwhohadtheirshotsand
stillbecameinfected.32
Meanwhile, Dr. Tom Frieden, Director of the CDC, said he’s very conceeeeerrrned by the
“growingnumberofpeoplewhoaresusceptibletomeasles.”HewentonDefacetheNationtowarn
“wecouldhavealargeoutbreakinthiscountryasaresult.”33Youthinkso,Tommyboy?What’shis
solution—closethedamnborders?Keepinfectedillegalaliensfromspreadingthisandotherdiseases
among the populace? Nope. Ensconced on his TV soapbox, he used fear to peddle vaccination,
claimingthat“thevaccineissafeandeffective.”34
Let’s stop there for a moment. When it comes to the CDC claiming that a vaccine is “safe and
effective,” it’s a well-known fact that many vaccines contain mercury—such as the Influenza Virus
Vaccine(2013/2014formula)madebyGlaxoSmithKline.Sincemercuryisaneurotoxicchemical,it
begsthequestionwhyanyapprovedvaccinewouldincludethistoxin.Likewise,asonesourcewrites,
“If vaccines work so well to prevent disease, then why do some vaccines (like the chickenpox
vaccine)openlyadmitthattheycancausethespreadofchickenpox?”35
Understandably, some parents aren’t so sure about the CDC’s claim that vaccines are harmless.
Recognizingthisreality,FriedendishedoutaparentalguilttriponABC’sThisWeek,saying,“What
youdoforyourownkidsdoesn’tjustaffectyourfamily.Itaffectsotherfamiliesaswell.Themore
kidswhoarenotvaccinated,themorethey’reatriskandthemoretheyputtheirneighbors’kidsat
riskaswell.”36
Let me get this straight. Frieden lectures Americans that their kids might put others at risk for
measles,buthehasnothingtosaytothoseenteringthecountryillegallywhoareputtingallofusat
risk.Whydidn’tFriedensay,“WhenyousneakintoAmericacarryingdiseasepreviouslyeradicated
intheUnitedStates,you’reputtingyourneighbors’kidsatrisk?”
OnecolumnistwritingforUSAToday,whosenameisunimportant,didmorethanjustlayaguilt


trip on parents who chose not to pump chemicals—with or without mercury—into their children.
Regarding those whom he labels “anti-vaxxers,” he advocates this doozy: “Parents who do not
vaccinatetheirchildrenshouldgotojail.”37Youmightwanttoreadthatagain.
He goes on to argue, “Anti-vaccine parents are turning their children into little walking time
bombs. They ought to be charged for endangering their children and others.”38 Again, not a word
from him about those introducing this disease to our country in the first place. Why isn’t he
advocatingthatillegalalienswhoarecarriersbetossedintojail—orkickedoutofthecountrybefore
theystartanepidemic?
Look,I’vebeensoundingthewarningbellaboutimmigrantsandepidemicssinceIbeganinradio

Thisisaformofmedicalgenocide.
Thatmaybedifficultformodernearstohear.Butthefactofthematteris,illegalmigrantsmay
have a greater resistance to these illnesses, as they live in the midst of the infecting organisms. By
contrast,ourpopulationisnearly“virgin”totheseinfectiousorganisms.Thekillerflu,measles,and
TBragingthroughourpopulationarealltheresultofthisanti-Americangovernment.
Letmetakeyoubackintohistorytoillustratethispoint.WhenEuropeanseamenarrivedinTahiti
and the Marquesas, they brought with them smallpox, which nearly wiped out the entire local
population in only 20 years. You see, the “natives” had no resistance to this disease. Thanks to his
open borders policy, we are now Obama’s “natives.” Which begs the question: How many of those
52,000undocumentedchildrenfromCentralAmerica—whichObamaimported—broughtmeaslesor
otherdiseaseswiththem?
Nobodyknows.
It’snotliketheyhadvaccinationrecordsstuffedintheirknapsacks.
ListenerstomyshowknowIdon’tbelievethereisaneasyanswertothevaccinationquestion.I
support some vaccines and not others, based on the benefits each one offers relative to its risk.
Parentsshouldresearcheachvaccinationindividuallyandmaketheirowndecisiononwhetherthey
believe the protection they offer against a potentially dangerous disease outweighs the risk of side
effectsorcomplications.
Oneoftheessentialconsiderationsinthatdecisionisthelikelihoodyourchildwillbeexposedto
the disease. If the disease has been eradicated in the United States and the vaccine still contains
mercury or is otherwise more likely to result in adverse side effects, it might make sense not to
expose your child to that vaccination. That assumes a sane immigration policy where millions of
immigrants from countries where the disease is not eradicated aren’t walking through our borders
unscreened.
Bynotonlyallowingbutinvitingmillionsofsickimmigrantsintoourcountry,Obamatakesthat
choice away from the parent. They may have to consider giving their children vaccinations they
otherwisewouldn’t,merelybecauseoftheunnaturalriskObama’simmigrationpoliciescreate.And
whileIhavealwaysopposedgovernment-mandatedvaccinationswheretheyarenotneeded,wemust
accept that Obama’s tsunami of immigrants represents a public health crisis that may require
mandatingvaccinationstoprotectourchildren.
Orcourse,thisplaysrightintoObama’shands.Mandatedvaccineswouldgivehimcovertobring

evenmoremoneytohiscronycapitalistBigPharmabuddies.Itwouldbeasocialisttrifecta.
The choice on whether to vaccinate one’s child should be a parental right. Under normal
circumstances,thegovernmentshouldnothavetheauthoritytomandateit.Butimmigratingintothe
United States is a privilege, granted by the people through their so-called representatives in

TheWorldHealthOrganization(WHO)estimatesasmanyas500millioncasesofviralhepatitis

This is yet another Third World problem that could become our problem, thanks to our
irresponsibleimmigrationpoliciesandbrokenpublichealthsystem.TheWHOreportsthat3.2%of

leaving developing countries to immigrate into North America and Western Europe.40 It’s a global
phenomenomthatisn’tanevilinandofitself,providedthatimmigrationandpublichealthofficials

ButinObama’sAmerica,thefirstprioritiesarechangingAmerica’sdemographicsandpolitical
identity. Public health and safety are subordinate to fundamentally changing America from a free
republic based on Judeo-Christian values and English common law traditions to a multicultural,
socialdemocracy.Ifhebringsinafloodofnewdiseasesamongthemillionsofillegalimmigrants

Viralhepatitisattackstheliverandcandevelopintocirrhosisandlivercancer.
Hepatitis A is the least dangerous of the three most common strains of viral hepatitis. Patients
usuallyrecoverfromthisstrainwithouttreatment.
Hepatitis B is more serious. While the body can fight it off and becomes immune thereafter,
chronicinfectionisadanger.About240millionpeoplearechronicallyinfected.780,000ofthemdie
eachyearfromthecomplications.41Itcanbepreventedbyvaccine.
HepatitisCisthemostdangerousofthethree.75%–85%ofHepatitisCpatientsdevelopachronic

500,000peopledieeachyearfromcomplicationsresultingfromHepatitisC.43
BothHepatitisBandHepatitisCaretransmittedthroughbodilyfluids.Whileunprotectedsexand
intravenous drug use are the most frequent means of transmission in developed countries, viral
hepatitis poses a serious risk to children in the developing world who aren’t engaged in either of
these high-risk behaviors, thanks to poor health care practices such as inadequate sterilization of
medicalequipmentortransfusionofunscreenedbloodandbloodproducts.
For the first time since 1990, the CDC reported an increase of Acute Hepatitis B in 2013 and “a

AMERICA:THETITANICPART2
This begs the uncomfortable question: Why are President Obama and the Center for Disease
Dissemination (previously the Center for Disease Control) failing to tell the truth about this crisis
while at the same time importing those who have such deadly illnesses? There are three primary
schools of thought. Some believe the CDC wants to bring the infected here for treatment because,
after all, isn’t that the compaaaaassionate and liberal thing to do? We have better hospitals, better
treatmentprotocols,andbetteroutcomesthandestinationsabroad,right?True.

That would still be compassionate and it certainly makes more sense—unless you are insane or

In order to fight off potential infection, you must build your body’s immune system from the
insideout—whichincludesnotintroducinginfectiontoyourbodyinthefirstplace.Howdoyoudo
that?Considerthefollowingsixsteps.
WashYourHands
Numberoneisaneasywin:Practicegoodhygiene.Morespecifically,washyourhands.Assimple
as that may sound, mastering a proper hand-washing technique is the foundation of controlling
infection.Why?Becauseyoupreventthetransmissionofviruses(e.g.,thecommoncold,influenza,
etc.)fromenteringyourbodyinthefirstplace.
RememberthecaseofTyphoidMary?Maryfailedtoseetheimportanceofproperlywashingher
hands and, as a result, thousands of people became infected with typhoid and dozens of them died.
Mary was a carrier of the disease and passed it along to unsuspecting people. Had she washed her
handsproperly,thediseasemaynothavespread.

Then, whether you are at home, work, or in a public restroom, avoid touching the faucet once
you’vewashedyourhands.Instead,takeapapertoweltoshutoffthewater,oratleastusethebackof

DialBacktheStress
A second strategy to maintaining the strength of your immune system is stress management.

Whetherit’stemporarystressors(suchasapoorjobperformancereviewortrafficcausingyouto

Bylearninghowtocontrolourminds,subtlehormonalchangesemergethat,inturn,controlour
biochemical responses. As our great-grandmothers knew, our attitudes, beliefs, and emotions can
influence immunity. The immune system can even be conditioned, or tricked, if you will, into
responding by psychological means. Stress releases powerful hormones that suppress our immune
defenses and increase our susceptibility to many diseases, from the common cold to cancer. Put
anotherway,diseaseresistanceispartlyafunctionofhowwellwehandlestressfulsituations.

knotted stomach, tense muscles or racing thoughts. Regardless of the particular sign of stress, stop
rightwhereyouareandtakeafewminutesforapersonal“time-out.”Breathedeeplytentimesortake
a short walk. Furthermore, learn to recognize what situations trigger your stress response and ask
yourselfhowyoucanarrangeyourdaytoavoidsuchsituations.Or,learntoredefinethesituationso

For optimal results, consider incorporating the practice of fifteen or twenty minutes of deep,
uninterrupted relaxation in a quiet place every day. You see, it is impossible to exist in two

KnowWhereYourFoodCameFrom
Whichbringsustoafinalwaytopreventtheintroductionofgermsanddiseasesintoyourbody:
Avoideatingfoodfromcountriesthathaverelaxedfishing,game,andagriculturalstandards.When
I’m at the supermarket, I marvel at the bountiful harvest of fresh fruits and vegetables on display
shipped in from across the country and around the world. However, given the past outbreaks of
salmonella, Cyclospora, and E. coli all linked back to lettuce, cucumbers, papayas, and other fruits
andvegetablesgrowninMexico 51,Istoppedreachingforvegiesgrownsouthoftheborderanumber
ofyearsago.Whyriskinfectionwhenthereareothermorereliable,domesticsourcesforfood?
I’m equally hesitant to buy fish or seafood from Asia (which accounts for about 25% of the
seafood Americans eat). Fish farmers in that country constantly battle a water supply teaming with
sewage,pesticides—evenindustrialwaste.TheNewYorkTimes reported that “More than half of the
rivers in China are too polluted to serve as a source of drinking water” and went on to expose a
growing fish supply crisis. They noted that “[Fish] Farmers have coped with the toxic waters by
mixingillegalveterinarydrugsandpesticidesintofishfeed,whichhelpskeeptheirstocksaliveyet

Don’tmakethemistakeofassumingtheFoodandDrugAdministration(FDA)willprotectyoufrom
importingcontaminatedseafood—theyonlyinspectabout2%ofimportedseafood!
And for my readers with exotic tastes, avoid “bushmeat.” That’s right, stay away from monkey,
gazelle,zebra,batsorother“delicacies”importedfromWestAfrica,whethertheyarefresh,frozen,
smokedorcanned.WhilebushmeatistechnicallyillegaltoimportintotheUnitedStates,accordingto
a report in Newsweek, “from 2009 to 2013, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency
confiscated over 69,000 different bushmeat items, with seizures ranging from dried bat to smoked
monkey”which,theynote,islikelya“mereslivercomparedwithwhatactuallygetsintotheU.S.At
leastoneestimateputsthenumberat15,000poundseverymonth.”54
Not surprisingly, given the fact that some 77,000 West Africans now call New York City their
home,it’sthe“epicenterofthebushmeattradeintheU.S.”55Noreputableretailerwouldriskthefines
imposed if caught selling bushmeat. Smuggled bushmeat is thus part of an underground economy,
soldprimarilybysmall,localmerchantswhodon’tadvertisetheirshadydealings.Forexample,an
undercover professional investigator hired by ABC News caught a local merchant on a hidden
camerainQueens,NewYork,selling“canerat”—abushmeatdelicacy—for$20apound.56
TheNewsweekarticlealsonotesthattheimportedbushmeatproblemhasbeenwithusforyears.
They cite a 2007 memo released to customs officials, which warned that bushmeat is “a potential
vectorofdiseasessuchasMonkeypox,EbolaVirus,SevereAcuteRespiratorySyndrome(SARS)and
othercommunicablediseases.”
While it’s true that consumption of bushmeat in America is something that a minority of people
engage in, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service reports that “thousands of pounds of primate parts,
antelope,andotherbushmeataresmuggledintotheUnitedStatesandEuropeeveryyearforcultural

GiventhattheAfricananimalpopulationisfrequentlyidentifiedasacarrierofdiseases,andforthe

Youmaybewondering,“ButMichael,Idon’teatbushmeat.What’sthebigdealifsomeoneelse
does? Live and let live, right?” Wrong. The very presence of bushmeat within our borders poses a
deadly threat to our country. Let’s connect the dots: If an immigrant from Ghana or Nigeria or
anotherepidemichotspot,livinginNewYorkCityorLosAngeles,unknowinglyeatscontaminated
bushmeat tonight for dinner, he or she could become infected—be it with Ebola, Monkeypox or
another communicable disease. Overnight that person would become a carrier and, like a spark on
drykindling,couldigniteanepidemicthatputsallofusatrisk.
For those with exotic tastes, there are native wild game options in America—wild boar, moose,
buffalo, beaver, muskrat, armadillo, squab, wild geese and turkey, eel, quail, antelope and bear,
among other choices. Even so, these meats can contain pathogens such as salmonella and E.coli,
whichiswhyproperhandlingandcookingproceduresshouldbeobservedatalltimes.And,byall
means, exotic game should be purchased from reputable retailers who sell meat which has been
USDA inspected. If hunting is your thing, be sure to follow the regulations governing hunting
