Letter to Senator Lisa Murkowski
522 Hart Senate Office Building
Washington, DC 20510
February 28, 2019                 Re: HELP Hearing, “Vaccines Save Lives”

Dear Senator Murkowski,

My name is Brett Wilcox. My family and I live in Sitka. In July, 2014, my 15-year old son, David, and I completed our 6 month, 3,000 mile run across the USA advocating for a GMO Free USA. My wife, Kris, and 13-year old daughter, Olivia, David and I had the privilege of meeting with you in your Washington DC office after our run.

Since that time, I have invested thousands of hours into the study of vaccine industry corruption. In 2016, I authored the book JABBED: How the Vaccine Industry, Medical Establishment, and Government Stick It to You and Your Family. In 2018, Skyhorse Publishing published an updated edition in hardcover.

As a member of the U.S. Senate Committee on Health, Education Labor & Pensions, you will participate in a hearing scheduled on March 5th titled Vaccines Save Lives: What Is Driving Preventable Disease Outbreaks?

You and your colleagues will be subjected to a barrage of propaganda created by the financially driven vaccine industry. Their goal, as it has always been, is to increase profit, not health. And they accomplish that goal by spreading one sided and flat out wrong information about their liability-free products.

Vaccine industry architects are not afraid of the measles, they are not afraid of losing herd immunity, and they are not primarily interested in protecting immunocompromised people. They are, however, afraid of Constitutionally protected free speech, and they’re afraid of the growing vaccine informed public. It is well known that better educated people vaccinate less. Why? Because they learn the truth about the vaccine industry, and they learn the truth about vaccines.

The vaccine industry is afraid of the truth. Their only defense against the truth is lies. Please refer to the following facts to counter industry lies:

Fact #1. Vaccines are dangerous

Under federal law, vaccines are legally classified by Congress itself as “unavoidably UNSAFE products.” [1] That’s because there is nothing safe about injecting children, pregnant women, or elderly people with cell and DNA fragments from aborted male and female fetuses, human serum albumin, fetal bovine serum, monkey and canine kidney proteins, egg protein, chick embryo cells and fibroblasts, milk-derived raw materials, aluminum, mercury, formaldehyde, sodium chloride, neomycin, and polysorbate 80. [2]

Newer vaccines also include genetically modified ingredients and next generation vaccines are intended to permanently alter human DNA and the human genome. [3] [4]

As of November, 2018, the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program has paid out more than $4 billion for vaccine-related injuries and deaths. [5]

Fact #2. Reduction in chronic disease does not equal improved health

While there is some evidence that vaccines do in fact provide at least a temporary reduction in targeted diseases, there is also a growing body of evidence that vaccines are the primary cause of a host of chronic diseases. [6] [7]

Researchers in Africa found a lower incidence of targeted diseases following the administration of the DTP vaccine. They also found that DTP recipients died at 5 times the rate of their unvaccinated peers from non-vaccine-targeted illnesses. [8]

In a paper published in February 2019, one of the world’s leading authorities on the DTaP vaccine, James D. Cherry, MD, writes, “Because of linked-epitope suppression, all children who were primed by DTaP vaccines will be more susceptible to pertussis throughout their lifetimes, and there is no easy way to decrease this increased lifetime susceptibility.” [9]

The incidence of chronic disease has grown exponentially both in the US and abroad concurrent with the increase in the liability-free vaccination schedule. In 1976, 1 US child in 30 was learning disabled. In 2013, 1 US child in 6 was learning disabled. [10] The cost of special education is threatening to bankrupt some countries. [11]

It would be foolish to pin the epidemic of sick and disabled children entirely on vaccines. It would be far more foolish, however, to ignore the obvious connection.

Thus we see that the bumper sticker slogan “Vaccines are safe and effective” is a lie and any “expert” who makes such a claim while under oath is committing perjury.

Fact #3. Vaccines are not tested against inert placebos.

Double blind randomized placebo-controlled trials are the gold standard in science, a standard adhered to when testing new pharmaceutical drugs and a standard ignored by the vaccine industry. In the fraudulent world of vaccine research, a “placebo” is another vaccine, vaccines, or toxic ingredients known to induce autoimmunity in laboratory animals. [12]

This is by design.

The toxic ingredients in vaccines injure and kill healthy children. If new vaccines were tested against a saline, inert placebo group, vaccine-induced injuries and deaths could not be hidden. I repeat for emphasis: Researchers intentionally injure and sometimes kill healthy children in their fraudulent “placebo” groups to hide injuries and deaths in their new vaccines.

Then they write off the injuries and deaths as “New Medical Events” unrelated to the new vaccine or to the toxic “placebo”, and they pronounce the new vaccine to be safe. Serious adverse events following vaccination in both test groups and “placebo” groups range from 2% to as high as 75% of participants. One study documented 4% of infants in both groups were hospitalized within 30 days of vaccination. [13]

The FDA approves new vaccines fully aware that industry “safety tests” are nothing more than scientific treachery.

 Fact #4: Vaccines are liability free products.

In 1986, Congress passed the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA), granting near complete immunity to the vaccine industry. [14] They did so because the industry was at risk of bankruptcy due to the awards it was forced to pay for vaccine-induced injuries and deaths. Shielded from liability, the vaccine industry has unleashed new vaccines upon the public at an unprecedented rate.

In 1983, children received 23 doses of 7 vaccines between two months and age six. Today, the number had increased to 50 doses of 14 vaccines between the day of birth and age six and 69 doses of 16 vaccines between the day of birth and age 18. [15]

Fact #5. The measles did not become “scary” until the measles vaccine was licensed.

In 1962, one year prior to the introduction of the measles vaccine, Alexander Langmuir, MD, the “father of epidemiology,” described measles as a “self-limiting infection of short duration, moderate severity, and low fatality. . . .” [16]  During the same time period, mothers read the following passage from a 1958 children’s book titled, “Have a happy measles, a merry mumps, and a cheery chickenpox.” [17]

Children played with dolls that had the measles, the entire country laughed at the measles in the Brady Bunch, the Flintstones and other TV shows, and parents took their kids to “measles parties” so they could get the measles at the same time and enjoy lifelong immunity.

By 2017, according to the oft-quoted vaccine enthusiast, Peter Hotez, measles had transformed into one of the most lethal of all human diseases. [18]

Fact #6. Vaccine-induced immunity is a Pharma-contrived lie.

Vaccine induced immunity wanes over time meaning that nearly all adults are vaccinated against childhood infections, but virtually none are immune to the targeted infections. [19]

Furthermore, vaccines fail to produce antibody titers in about 2-10% of vaccine recipients. [20]

Clearly, we have never reached the fabled 95% needed to provide the fabled vaccine-induced immunity. We can’t lose herd immunity, because we’ve never had it. And even though we’ve never had it, the USA is not breaking out in disease epidemics. (A few dozen cases of measles among 325,000,000 is not an epidemic.)

Fact #7. Vaccine free children are not dangerous to immunocompromised people.

Children should stay home from school and adults should stay home from work based on their health status, not their vaccination status. Healthy people can’t spread diseases they don’t have. If the industry were truly interested in protecting immunocompromised children, they would require recently vaccinated people of all ages to avoid the public for several weeks because live viral vaccines shed to the unvaccinated. That single fact demonstrates that banning healthy unvaccinated children from school has no scientific merit and is in fact a form of discrimination based on religious or philosophical beliefs or medical status.

Fact #8. Government sponsored censorship is a violation of the Constitution.

Vaccine zealots are now calling for government sponsored censorship purportedly to protect the public from misinformation. They seem to have forgotten what country they live in. The USA is not Communist Russia or Nazi Germany. Censoring facts about vaccine industry corruption and fraudulent science is illegal, un-American, and dangerous.

They’re calling for censorship because the science is not on their side.

Fact #9. Vaccine exemption laws fall under state authority, not the Federal government.

Recently, Scott Gottlieb the FDA Commissioner said the federal government might have to step in if states can’t reign in vaccine exemptions at the state level. When it comes to vaccine safety, the FDA has failed the American public, failed to support valid science, and, based on Gottlieb’s statement, is now prepared to fail the law: vaccine exemptions fall under the authority of the state, not the FDA, not the CDC, not the Congress, and not the President.


Vaccine zealots are losing control at the state level. Of the more than 100 bills vaccine-related bills currently filed across the USA, nearly half support meaningful informed consent, increased parental rights, and stronger exemptions.

This is happening because vaccine informed people no longer tolerate industry lies, tyranny, and government overreach. We no longer tolerate the unholy collusion of Pharma and State. And we will not submit to the proposed mandatory adult liability-free vaccine schedule.

The American people have never needed protection from the measles. We do, however, need ethical and informed elected officials to protect their constituents from the increasingly rapacious pharmaceutical industry and from their mandated, liability-free vaccines.

Senator Murkowski, you’ve got truth and a growing army of vaccine-informed people on your side. Together we will reclaim our sovereignty over our bodies, our health, our children, and our government. We trust that you will do everything within your power to support us in this critical endeavor.
