With the relentless push for Big Pharma to force vaccines into children using government authority, Texas state Rep. Jonathan Stickland (R-Bedford) is making a stand.
Stickland took aim at Dr. Peter Hotez, a leading advocate for mandatory vaccinations who is pushing for social media entities to restrict non-corporate speech that is skeptical of Big Pharma’s shots.
“We need a more robust system of pro-vaccine advocacy in this country,” Hotez said.
New #vaccine exemption @TexasDSHS numbers tell much of the story. I'll tell the rest: Children of #Texas have been placed in harm's way for the financial gain of special & outside interest groups.

Hotez is lobbying for Texas to move in the direction of other more left-leaning states that are eliminating personal belief waivers for vaccines, setting the stage for mandatory vaccinations.
“That’s what I’d like to see done in Washington and Oregon, and done here [in Texas],” Hotez said. “Any move toward that is welcome.”
Hotez is particularly hostile toward individuals of deep religious faith who wish to abstain from Big Pharma’s toxic inoculations.
“If you look at the major religions, I can’t think of any mainstream prohibitions against vaccines, maybe some sects or spinoffs,” he said. “These are important times where religious leaders need to speak out on behalf of vaccines. We need an interfaith statement on vaccines.”
It was these comments and others that prompted the liberty-minded legislator Stickland to put the Mengelean physician in his place.
You are bought and paid for by the biggest special interest in politics. Do our state a favor and mind your own business. Parental rights mean more to us than your self enriching “science.” #txlege

Hotez responded by saying in a follow-up Tweet: “I don’t take a dime from the vaccine industry. I develop neglected disease vaccines for the world’s poorest people. And as a Texas pediatrician-scientist it is most certainly my business.”
Unimpressed by Hotez’s lip service, Stickland doubled-down with an even harsher condemnation of the doctor, accusing him of pushing “sorcery.”
Make the case for your sorcery to consumers on your own dime. Like every other business. Quit using the heavy hand of government to make your business profitable through mandates and immunity. It’s disgusting.

Stickland was correct to hammer Hotez for his deceptive and misleading rhetoric because the prominent mouthpiece is, in fact, closely connected to Big Pharma.
Hotez formerly served as the President of the Sabin Vaccine Institute and used to serve on the Board of Directors of the Immunization Partnership (TIP). These two organizations are propped up by significant donations from the pharmaceutical industry.
According to their annual report from 2015-2016, TIP’s donors included Big Pharma giants such as Merck, GlaxoSmithKline, and Pzifer. Merck and GlaxoSmithKline were also found on the donor list for Sabin as well.
Stickland is also promoting liberty in the Lone Star State by pushing for a measure to ban red light cameras, which passed the Texas state House this morning:

Stickland may have suffered a hiccup when he sided with House GOP leadership over grassroots 2nd Amendment advocates last month, but he has rebounded quickly.
This child-targeting sorcerer, Hotez may think twice before disseminating Big Pharma propaganda over social media in the future.
Transgender HHS Nominee Refuses to Say That Minors Shouldn’t Override Parents and Make Their Own Decisions About Transitioning
Our country is going down the tubes.
At Thursday’s Senate confirmation hearings, Sen. Rand Paul confronted Rachel Levine, a transgender doctor and Biden’s Assistant HHS Secretary nominee, asking if “she” supports minors overriding their parents on transitioning to the opposite sex.
“Do you support the government intervening to override the parents’ consent to give a child puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, and/or amputation surgery of breasts and genitalia?” Paul asked. “You have said that you’re willing to accelerate the protocols for ‘street kids.’ I’m alarmed that poor kids with no parents, who are homeless and distraught—you would just go through [with] this and allow that to happen to a minor.”
Paul then brought up Keira Bell, a biological female who started transitioning to a male at 16 years old and now deeply regrets her decision. Bell recently won a court case that accused the Tavistock Centre in London of rushing her transition without proper guidance. Paul says he hoped Levine “would have compassion” for Bell.
“At 14 she went on the internet [and saw] something about transsexuals, she thought, ‘Well maybe that’s what I am.’ She ended up getting these puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, she had her breasts amputated. But here’s what ultimately she says now, and this is a very insightful decision from someone who made a mistake but was led to believe this was a good thing by the medical community.”
Paul quotes Bell as saying, “I made a brash decision as a teenager, as a lot of teenagers do, trying to find confidence and happiness. Except now the rest of my life will be negatively affected. […] Medicalized gender transitioning was a very temporary, superficial fix for a very complex identity issue.”
Paul then picks back up and repeats his concern that Levine won’t unequivocally say that minors shouldn’t be making their own decisions to amputate body parts and take cross-sex hormones.
“For most of our history we have believed that minors don’t have full rights and the parents need to be involved. So I’m alarmed that you won’t say with certainty that minors should not have the ability to make the decision to take hormones that will affect them for the rest of their life. Will you make a more firm decision on whether minors should be involved in these decisions?”
Levine’s response was as follows: “Senator, transgender medicine is a very complex and nuanced field, and if confirmed to the position of Assistant Secretary of Health, I would certainly be pleased to come to your office and talk with you and your staff about the standards of care…”
So the answer to Paul’s original question, then, is “no.” Levine does not think parents should have the authority to prevent their children from transitioning to the opposite sex. She should just say that rather than try to sidestep it with the cop-out that “transgender medicine is very complex and nuanced.”
