Video: Rick Perry "taken aback" by death jeers, downplays vaccine hype, talks immigration

We caught up with Texas Gov. Rick Perry this morning in Tampa and asked a few questions about immigration, the controversy over the HPV vaccine and the crowd members who cheered at the idea of letting someone die in a coma. He also gave a shout-out to his buddy, Florida Gov. Rick Scott.

Perry's comments on the HPV vaccine came after Michele Bachmann this morning told a radio show that a woman came up to her after the debate and said her child was made retarded by the Gardasil shot. Perry dismissed that as a side-effect of the vaccine.

"You heard the same arguments about giving our children protections from childhood diseases and that autism was part of it. Now we’ve subsequently found out that that was all generated and not true," he said. "I would suggest to you that this issue about Gardasil and making it available was about saving people’s lives. I sat on the side of a bed of a young lady in Texas who died from cervical cancer. It had a powerful impact on me. We gave parents the right to opt out. The Legislature disagreed with the way we did it. I work for the people, not the other way around…. At the end of the day, saving people’s lives and making vaccines available that can save lives is the important thing…"

What did he think about the cheers from a crowd member or two about euthanizing a person in a coma? Was he

Perry: "I was a bit taken back by that myself. The fact is, we’re the party of life. We ought to be coming up with ways to save lives. Now, when it comes to the issue of justice and the issue of dispensing the death penalty, state-by-state the states ought to be able to decide that issue. In the state of Texas, we respect the rule of law. And when people kill our children, kill our police officers, they’re going to be eligible by a jury of their peers to make a decision on whether the death penalty in that case will be appropriate or not…."

"That was all generated and not true"? Generated by whom, the tens of thousands of parents who report that their kids were born healthy and were developing normally until they received certain routine vaccinations and then regressed into autism?

Perry may think that all the science is in and vaccines have nothing to do with autism but an investigative report aired on Aug 23, 2011 on HDNet TV challenges that claim.

This report exposed the fact that while health officials continue to tell us studies show no link, the federal government has paid out millions of dollars in compensation for vaccine injuries that included autism. Seeing these children who were born healthy and were suddenly until they were dramatically affected by their vaccinations should give us all pause.

The U.S. Vaccine Court has paid out over $2 billion for severe injuries, including death over the two 20 years. We are now learning that the Court has recognized autism as part of the damage.

Many people have everything at stake in denying a link between the U.S. vaccine schedule and the epidemic increase in autism. Perry needs to realize that this issue far from settled.

you said all I wanted to say Anne, so thankful for your advocacy. Oh, and Mr Perry, there are 200 strains of HPV, and this vaccine only has 2. We also know that it has viral DNA sequences of HPV in it, not good, can cause the very thing your fighting against. Stop being a virologist and a bildeberg backer, and see the very lives for which you spurn as nothing and meaningless. Our kids are suffering at the hands of mandated vaccines...give parents the FREEDOM of choice and let THEM make the final and last decision!

Chris Kodawe

Well I am one of these parents that watched their child change after a vaccination. I know my child inside and out, I know what I witnessed in my child after his vaccination and it pisses me off to have some person that does not know me or my child tell me that what I witnessed is not real. I spend every possible minute with my children do you? Mr. Pro vax for no reason other than you buy into following the heard of sheep. I care about my kids and you are not jabing another one of mine I'll tell you that right now!

And all of you parents who attribute your child's autism to vaccines need to step back and look at all the greater chemical exposures in the loving, clean, and santized enviroment you created for them, in the process over-exposing them to all kinds of potentially harmful contaminents produced by the chemical industry.

There is no way you will accept that it is anything other than the evil pharmaceutical company who produced the vaccine as the cause of the terrible affliction that autism is. I get that.

But the reality is that the only study that ever substantially linked autism to vaccines was a study manufactured fradulently. That is why the study was later disavowed by the medical journal that published it.

The truth does not ease your pain, but that does not make it any less true.

kathy blanco

whasup, yes, you gotta look at the bigger picture, the combined effects of toxins in utero, out as wee babes, and vaccines are a toxic mix that our kids can't take. They are like canary birds. I accept there are other forms or ways to get autism, however, the majority of our children, are like a lasagna layer of damage. Vaccines seem to be the last and final straw and tipping point, environment has indeed loaded the gun, vaccines pull the trigger. So to ease your pain, vaccines also contain neurotoxins numerous. How much can brain microglia take? Have you measured it? Have you seen the dysfunctional immune status of our kids to that of an AIDS patient? Did you know that AIDs children are warned that vaccines can reinvigorate retroviruses in them? So, why do our kids have XMRV, a known retrovirus? Just get you started in your research, and GO! Have you seen their guts inflammed with viruses and bacteria? Like I have? Do some more homework, it won't be pretty. What you will find is that the pharmaceutical industry, cattle, or I should say chattle sheople masses will line out without every asking...is my kid an immune dysfunction child, is he currently sick, has taken scores of abx's and are they already damaged BBB's (that's blood brain barrier) so leaky that ANYTHING gets inside? Seriously, it takes a lot of research to find out these talking points, but, I ask you to do your research and come to the conclusion which you may not like. I blame the vaccine industry, the chemical industry (I lived next to a cement plant which emitted mercury while pregnant), I had amalgam fillings (while pregnant), and was even awashed with malathione helicopter campaigns in silicon valley...I know how much this has damaged MY immune system...and also my children's...but the ticket is this...once my kids had their vaccines, that is when autism expressed, when with fulminant seizures, mitochondrial dysfunction, and one child even heart damage...so you tell me...when my son suffered a DPT reaction which almost killed him, how I should feel towards them?

Never will there ever be another chance again, to remove the contamination that has crept into Congress. Perhaps this is our final option to clean the rot from Washington and replace the aisles with honest TEA PARTY leaders. It's evident that the GOP doesn't want to lose their influence and their access to copious favors from H street lobbyists. It’s a similar agenda with Democrats and the hidden sleaze emanating from the Liberal extremists, who must be elected out. Furtherance, that main stream America must stay vigilant, against violations of our voting laws. ILLEGAL ALIENS DO VOTE AND HAVE DONE SO IN PREVIOUS ELECTIONS. THANKS TO ACORN AND ITS FRAUDULENT REGISTRATIONS, FOREIGNERS MAY HAVE POSSIBLY CHANGED CLOSE RACES IN OUR “CITIZENS ONLY” ELECTORATE.

ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION IS NOT JUST A VIOLATION OF AMERICANS SOVEREIGN RIGHTS, BUT THEFT OF MILLIONS OF JOBS AND A VISIBLE DOWNGRADE OF OUR ECONOMY. REP. LAMAR SMITH IS ON RECORD THIS THURSDAY TO CHANGE THE LAWS AND MAKE E-VERIFY MANDATORY. THERE IS NOT ENOUGH ROOM IN MY COMMENTARY TO SPREAD THE WORD. BUT EVERYBODY APPLYING FOR ANY JOB WILL HAVE TO BE VERIFIED. NO MATTER IF YOU’RE BLACK, WHITE, HISPANIC OR ANY OTHER RACES; THIS WILL BE OF MASSIVE ADVANTAGE TO YOU AND YOUR JOB SEARCH IF YOU CAME TO AMERICA THROUGH THE FRONT DOOR. H.R. 2885 New Bill Number for Lamar Smith's "Legal Workforce Act" IS GOING TO THE FLOOR AND CAN SAVE YOUR JOB BY YOU CONTACTING YOUR REPRESENTATIVE THROUGH THE WASHINGTON DC SWITCHBOARD AT 202-224-3121. INSISTING YOUR SENATORS AND HOUSE VOTE FOR H.R. 2885.

Go to the Heritage Foundation website, NumbersUSA or Judicial Watch and read for the dollar figures that should push you to vote. Discover information at American Patrol, the Liberals and Democrats want to keep concealed, of the daily criminal and illegal alien activities in local and national news media. If you believe in the “Rule of Law.” and citizens rights established in the US Constitution.
Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas) is the Chairman of the Judiciary Committee and major forces have attempted to get him to keep postponing the moving of H.R. 2885.

All stops will be ripped out, to ensure that—ONLY—A --TRUE--TEA PARTY politician gain control, in the House or Senate. Already the Republican power mongers are influencing debates by pushing Rick Perry, but he has bad karma on illegal immigration, that will forever be a prominent decider in the Presidential or any elections until our laws are strictly enforced. Mitt Romney has settled into a D-, as he hasn't convinced the millions of TEA PARTY membership of his record on immigration. Most others except Michele Bachmann and Herman Cain have the strong supporters of stopping the out-of-control occupancy of foreigners, who have steadily poured into this nation, with no true deterrent of any administration. ALWAYS REMEMBER THE TEA PARTY PEOPLE, ARE JUST THAT ORDINARY AMERICANS LIKE YOU. THEY ARE NOT ATTORNEY-POLITICANS OR HARD CORE COMMUNIST INSPIRED LEFTIST.

President Obama for a time has illustrated some strong enforcement, up to this latest period in the White House, but eventually being intimidated by the czars in his circle of far left wing influence. Today--in this dreary recession, when millions of workers throughout America are living on food stamps and limited unemployment benefits, Obama has decided to only to process heinous criminals, instead of following through with the law and deporting every alien who falls into the clutches of ICE. Millions of Americans stand on the edge of miserable poverty, but millions of foreign nationals have been hired by dirty business owners who refuse to follow the law. The 20 million plus population of foreign invaders began in 1986, which was the start of the government’s unceasing engineered encouragement of covertly finding ways to promote millions from pouring through undermanned border regions.

IT’S AN OBVIOUS CONCLUSION THAT IF THEIR WAS ANY REAL INDUCEMENT TO ENFORCE IMMIGRATION LAWS, THE BORDERS WOULD BE SEALED SHUT AND UNLAWFUL ENTRY WOULD BE A FELONY? THE 1986 IMMIGRATION LAWS WAS A WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY, AS BUSINESSES WERE NEVER PUNISHED AND THE WHOLE THING WAS A TRAVESTY.

THE 3.5 Million illegal aliens who received AMNESTY and poor processing (Much of what was tantamount to fraud, concluded with millions more slipping across the borders and flying in from foreign countries. America is now crippled with millions of originally Chain Migration recipients, who survive on welfare handouts? We must draw the line on desperate nationals from other lands, when 15.1 percentage of America lives in poverty. Every year we take in at least a million newcomers, who supposedly are highly skilled in numerous occupations? In truth many have mediocre job skills, that out or work Americans have the experience to do. This is about importing cheap labor and not top notch scientists, engineers, who should receive expedited visas. Thousands of the poorly skilled come here on fraudulent applications, drawn up by incorrigible corporations and their well-paid attorneys.

The good Governor said; Free these states from the over burdening, one size fits all mentality out of washington DC....


Sort of like, one size fits all mentality of the main stream medical community, concerning the children's vaccine program?

That has damaged,1 in 110 children here in the US.

Mr. Tx Governor.

And if it's a boy! the damage then increases
to a risk of 1 in 68, so the rest of us can remain healthy.

To bad,they don't treat our children with the same caution. [as they do their own selves].

Latex gloves, causes Dr's and nurses to get sick. And some can even expire, in a subset populace. That's the reason,you see purple gloves in the Dr's offices.

You see,they know one size does not fit all.

Except, when vaccinating babies with heavy metals and toxins.

[Then, it just has to be safe]

The CDC has told Kennedy this; even if it
is true (vaccines are causing Autism) these children are part of a National sacrifice,
so that the rest of us can remain healthy.

Mr. Governor, how many parents would vaccinate
if the ped. came in to the exam room and said; you have a 1 in 110 chance of your child becoming a National sacrifice. That is, unless it's a boy! the chances then change to 1 in 68,

So that the rest of us, can remain healthy.

And the children they destroy Governor,well they just ignore them and let them suffer in silence.
