A WhiteHouse.gov petition calling for the prohibition of laws requiring mandatory vaccines was throttled by the White House, buried from public view and finally frozen for more than 36 hours to prevent it from achieving 100,000 signatures, according to NaturalNews.com, which recently broke the story.

Forced and mandatory vaccinations have been a topic of hot debate in the last few months. The petition, titled “Prohibit any laws mandating the force and requirement of vaccinations of any kind,” was posted Feb. 4. It was rapidly heading toward the minimum 100,000 required signatures needed to trigger a response from the White House. But on Feb. 27, it was frozen at 56,791 signatures, where it remained for more than 36 hours.

“The petition still allows people to sign it,” writes Natural News. “[I]t still sends a confirmation email that claims your signature counts. But the numbers on the petition website never change, no matter how many people sign it.” [Emphasis in original]

“In reality, your signature doesn’t count at all,” said Mike Adams of Natural News.

Dr. Rima Laibow of the Natural Solutions Foundation noted the petition was throttled by the White House even before it froze. While monitoring the petition’s numbers over several days, she noted it would only allow a maximum of 100 signatures per hour.

“Counsel Ralph Fucetola, JD, and I were tracking the number of signatures for the petition on our Skype chat and I noted something rather strange: There were many hours when the number increasing on the petition was exactly, exactly, 100,” she told Natural News.

“We realized that although it is really important in this debate to get to the 100,000 signature threshold on this petition, the system was gamed, making it harder than it should be. We knew that if we did not reach that number, the White House juggernaut would claim that only a tiny fraction of Americans were against Mandatory Adult Vaccines and would use that against us.”

Laibow noted the petition was an important measure in gaining support for a ban on federal vaccine regulations.

Throttled, frozen and buried

In addition to first throttling and then freezing signatures, the White House is deliberately burying the petition to make sure it can not easily be found by the public without the precise Web address.

“Unlike other petitions which are easily found at Petitions.WhiteHouse.gov,” noted Natural News, “the petition opposing vaccine mandates was deliberately hidden from view and could only be accessed if someone knew the direct URL. … On YouTube, this is equivalent to setting a video to ‘unlisted’ status to prevent the public from finding it.”

While a 100,000 signature threshold requires a response from the White House, it does not require the government to take any specific action to address the grievances.

Government agenda

The government has been aggressively pushing to make vaccinations mandatory, and establishment media have emphasized the vaccines’ benefits while largely failing to note its dangers, even when CDC whistleblower Dr. William Thompson admitted CDC scientists conspired to alter study data to bury links between the MMR vaccine and heightened autism risks in African-American children.

Among the supporters of forced vaccinations is USA Today’s Alex Berezow, who called for jailing parents who refuse to vaccinate.

“Parents who do not vaccinate their children should go to jail,” he wrote in a Jan. 28 column. “Though jail sounds drastic, it could be the only way to send a strong message about the deadly consequences of failing to vaccinate children.”

Adams said the White House was committing fraud by preventing the petition from reaching 100,000 signatures, calling it part of  “an extraordinary pattern of lying and deceit on the part of today’s medical extremists who demand all people be injected with vaccines, even against their wishes and in blatant violation of the American Medical Association’s code of ethics.”

Adams urges concerned people to click to sign the WhiteHouse.gov petition and notice how the number of signatures doesn’t change, even after adding a signature.

“Or, possibly,” he writes, “WhiteHouse.gov will reactivate the petition after being caught red-handed and exposed by this story, but they will still throttle the petition to make sure it never quite reaches the 100,000 threshold.”

Increased public distrust of government

“Liberals and the health fascists are suddenly hysterical because millions of Americans are not getting a measles vaccination for themselves or their children,” wrote former Republican congressman Tom Tancredo of Colorado.

“The real story here, however, is what public skepticism about vaccinations tells us about growing public distrust of government in general,” he wrote. “… What should be worrying liberals and the health fascists is that this public skepticism is totally understandable and entirely justified. Why would any intelligent person follow the government’s advice on hardly anything? Who any longer believes that the federal government is looking out for our best interests – in health matters or anywhere else?”

Dr. Lee Hieb, an orthopedic surgeon and past president of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, wrote “the issue here is one of freedom, and freedom is the freedom to choose – even if we make a bad choice.”

“The argument that I must vaccinate my children for the good of the community is not only scientifically questionable, it is an unethical precept,” she said. “It is the argument all dictators and totalitarians have used. … If Americans don’t stand up against this, then we are lost. Because we have lost ownership of ourselves. Our bodies are no longer solely ours – we and our children are able to be commandeered for the ‘greater good.'”
