The New Internet Police Protecting You From Freedom of Thought and Speech

By Barbara Loe Fisher
Published December 03, 2018 in Media

Before the Internet was launched in 1992, our thoughts, values and beliefs were informed by our family and friends and by the books, magazines and newspapers we read and by what we heard on radio and saw on television. If we wanted to communicate with each other we would pick up the telephone, write a letter or meet face to face.

The Internet changed everything.

The World Wide Web gave us electronic access to free, uncensored information on our computers, tablets and cell phones and the ability to instantly share that information with each other. It connected us together in a virtual public square, where we could do our own research and talk about our personal experiences, and express what we think and believe and how we feel about important issues that affect our lives.

There are three billion people on the Internet communicating with each other. 1 Except for the printing press created in the 15th century, there is no other single means of communication that has had as profound an impact on freedom of thought and speech as the World Wide Web.

Yes, the Internet has changed everything. And, now, everyone needs to know how the Internet is changing.


In the very near future you may not be able to find information about vaccine science, policy and law published on websites like NVIC.org and

TheVaccineReaction.org or be able to connect with us on social media platforms to have an open conversation about it. With the cancellation of net neutrality in the U.S. in 2017,3 the two decade forging of public-private business partnerships between governments and politically powerful corporations and institutions has cleared the way for factual information about health to be censored as “fake news” and quietly removed from the Internet if it does not conform with public health policy and government recommendations for use of pharmaceutical and food products.

Has the Internet been hijacked by Wall Street? It sure looks that way.

An electronic wall is being built to block you from getting information you want so you only get information someone else decides you need. An electronic burning of the books has begun, and the people are being silently herded into a virtual Dark Age. While this censorship is starting with conversations about health and vaccination, it will not end there.

Those who have bought and control the Internet now have the power to restrict or block any kind of information they do not want you to see or talk about with your family, friends and others you connect with online.5

So who is doing the judging of what is truth and what is “fake news” online?

The Internet Police Thinking and Speaking for You

Web of Trust6 and Snopes,7 both for-profit enterprises, have attempted to police the Internet for the past decade by rating websites for “trustworthiness” or branding articles published online as “true” or “false,” even as they themselves became embroiled in controversy about trustworthiness.10 But Snopes and Web of Trust are rookies compared to the professional SWAT team hired this year by a new corporation, NewsGuard Technologies, Inc., to rate websites and online publications so, in their own words, they can quote “fight false news, misinformation and disinformation.”11 12 13 14 15 16 17 NewsGuard is collaborating with The Paley Center for Media,18 Google,19 Microsoft,20 21 Publicis,22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 schools, libraries32 and other institutions to protect you and your children from news and perspective they think will harm you and society.

There is no question that “fake news” is a real problem in both mainstream and alternative media when demonstrably false information is deliberately disguised as fact. However, it is also a real problem when demonstrably factual information or perspective is mislabeled as “fake news,” simply because it criticizes government policy or threatens the bottom line of corporations selling government recommended commercial products like liability free vaccines.

NVIC Giving a Voice for the Vaccine Injured, Defending Human Rights

It has been 25 years since the nonprofit charity founded in 1982 by parents of vaccine injured children, the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC), began posting vaccine information on the Internet. Our mission is to prevent vaccine injuries and deaths through public education and to protect the ethical principle of informed consent to medical risk taking, which serves as the foundation for the ethical practice of medicine.46 The co-founders and parent representatives of NVIC have a long, transparent public record of consumer advocacy, including working with Congress to secure vaccine safety informing, recording, reporting and research provisions in the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986 and serving on federal vaccine advisory committees and testifying in congressional and state legislative hearings.47 48

We represent and give a voice to a vulnerable minority, the ones for whom the risks of vaccination turn out to be 100 percent. But we also represent and give a voice to people who believe that the human right to freedom of thought, speech, conscience and informed consent must be protected.49

Verifiable Facts About Vaccination Not “Fake News”

Ten years before the birth of the Internet, one of the best-kept secrets in America was that vaccines can and do cause injury and death and that some individuals are more vulnerable to being harmed by vaccination. In 1982, an Emmy award winning television documentary DPT: Vaccine Roulette produced by consumer reporter Lea Thompson alerted parents and pediatricians that the whole cell pertussis vaccine in DPT shots could brain damage children.50 51 It was a mainstream media outlet – NBC – that blew the whistle on the pharmaceutical industry’s neglect, and the medical establishment’s denial of DPT vaccine reactions, and the 50-year failure of industry and government to improve the safety of a vaccine mandated for all children to attend school.

These are verifiable facts: the truth, not “fake news.”

Three years later in 1985, Harcourt Brace Jovanovich published DPT: A Shot in the Dark, a book that further documented the risks and failures of the old crude whole cell pertussis vaccine.52 A year later, Congress passed the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act. In that legislation, for the first time the US government acknowledged that FDA licensed and CDC recommended vaccines can and do injure children.53 54

Since the 1986 Act was passed, the government has awarded four billion dollars in compensation to thousands of children and adults who have suffered permanent injuries, or whose loved ones have died after being given federally licensed and recommended vaccines.55

These are verifiable facts: the truth, not “fake news.”

Between 1991 and 2013, the National Academy of Sciences published a series of reports on vaccine adverse effects.56 These reports confirmed that vaccines can cause brain and immune system disorders, and that genetic, biological and environmental risk factors make some individuals more vulnerable to being harmed but doctors don’t know how to identify them because of gaps in vaccine science.57

These are verifiable facts: the truth, not “fake news.”

More than 684,000 adverse events following vaccination, including hospitalizations, injuries and deaths, have been reported to the federal government since 1990.58 This number is estimated to represent less than one percent of all vaccine adverse events that have actually occurred.59

These are verifiable facts; the truth, not “fake news.”

The U.S. government now recommends that children receive 69 doses of 16 vaccines between the day of birth and age 18, with 50 doses given before the age of six,60 which is triple the number of vaccinations given to children in 1983.61 Almost all of these vaccinations are mandated by states for children to attend school62 and some children are being refused medical care and adults are being fired from their jobs if they don’t get every one of them, even after suffering vaccine reactions and deterioration in health.63 64 65 66 67

Vaccine policy and mandates have helped to create a global vaccine market now projected to bring in a staggering $57 billion dollars for drug companies by 2025.68 69

These are verifiable facts, not “fake news.” But very soon you may not be able to get this information or talk about it online.

It is already happening.

Discrimination and Censorship: NVIC’s Information Targeted Online

Traffic to NVIC’s websites has fallen more than 50 percent since net neutrality was cancelled last year and access to our online information was restricted by suppressive algorithms and rating systems.70

Although NVIC takes a pro-education, pro-informed consent position and does not make vaccine use recommendations, NVIC’s Pinterest account was recently suspended.71 The reason given was that Pinterest takes action “against accounts that repeatedly save content that includes harmful advice, misinformation that targets individuals or protected groups or content that originates from disinformation campaigns” and that Pinterest operators “don’t allow advice when it has immediate or detrimental effects on a Pinner’s health or on public safety. This includes promotion of false cures for terminal or chronic illnesses and anti-vaccination advice,” adding that they rely on “information from national and internationally recognized institutions like the CDC and WHO World Health Organization” to guide their judgments.

NVIC is awaiting the judgment of NewsGuard Technologies about whether our weekly online journal newspaper The Vaccine Reaction will be given a green or red rating, which will send a signal to major search engines and social media platforms with the power to preserve or censor and make information disappear from the Internet.

Censoring Information for The Greater Good?

The new Internet Police scrubbing the World Wide Web of information they do not want you to see or talk about is part of the larger culture war going on today in our country and in many countries.72  73 When it comes to vaccination, discrimination and censorship is justified in the name of public safety and The Greater Good.74 75

Who’s greater good? Who among us in society should be given the power to take away our freedom to seek and obtain knowledge, to engage in rational thinking, to speak in the public square and follow the judgment of our conscience when making decisions about what we are willing to risk our lives and our children’s lives for?

In America, where the Bill of Rights in the U.S. Constitution guarantees civil liberties to protect minorities from the tyranny of the majority, we cannot wait any longer to publicly discuss and answer that question. It is a question that needs open public discussion, not censorship, because what is at stake affects not only freedom of thought and speech, but the loss of autonomy, the first and most sacred of all natural rights that protects every one of us from exploitation by wealthy corporations and politically powerful institutions.

Taking Positive Action with Eyes Wide Open and No Fear

In this time of oppression, we cannot know what needs to be done unless we go forward with our eyes wide open, understanding the new reality without fearing it. It is time to collect, preserve and cherish the good books, articles, films, videos and podcasts that have been published about vaccination and share them with our family and friends; time to save and download to our computers and external hard drives the written and video information still online that we want to keep and share with our children and our grandchildren. Time to expand the open public record by attending, testifying at and recording every legislative hearing, every town hall gathering, and every federal vaccine advisory committee meeting where people discuss vaccination or attempt to eliminate the human right to autonomy and censor freedom of thought and speech.

If the doors to the Internet are closing, we can still stand up and speak in the smaller public squares that have always been there. We can come together and talk the old fashioned way, meeting in cafes, hotels, churches and in the privacy of our own homes. We can set up telephone trees and stay in touch by mail the way we did before the Internet. We can still use the World Wide Web to create private messaging and host webinars. We can create new ways of communicating with each other using more secure channels for uncensored conversations about vaccination and health.

No matter what happens to the Internet, the best way to not lose touch with us is to register today for the free online NVIC Advocacy Portal, which is a secure communications network that puts you in electronic contact with your own legislators and provides you with real time information about vaccine-related legislation moving in your state. Taking that action provides us with an address to send you information in the mail, which also happens if you make a charitable donation to NVIC in any amount.

Today, everybody knows somebody who was healthy, got vaccinated and was never healthy again. NVIC has been here for 36 years telling the truth about vaccination and advocating for better quality vaccine science, higher government vaccine safety licensing standards, more humane public health policies and protection of informed consent rights. The truth about vaccination is out there now and the truth will shine bright and clear in the end, no matter who tries to stop it from being known.

It’s your health, your family, your choice and our mission continues: No forced vaccination. Not in America.

An excellent article as usual. In my opinion, the greatest enemy in this fight for truth is the growing cowardice of the American people. So few have the courage to take a stand no matter the consequences. In an age where anyone who helps an old lady to cross the street is declared a National 'hero', there are actually less and less true heroes in our midst. Many Americans are easily mislead by the Media and seem to have more faith in the State than they do in God.

It's a sad day, indeed; I've lived too long when I see the blatant censorship of TRUTH by gov't and NGO agencies, because they don't LIKE the what the truth has to say. It's here, and everywhere. We can't have an honest conversation about ANY issues, vaccine injuries are just 1 symptom of a MASSIVE national problem; silencing all "dissent" to the narrative that certain factions want pushed!

Clearly, the right to refuse any vaccination is protected by the First Amendment. Frankly I'm surprised no individual or organization has pursued this avenue of recourse when others try to deny that right. A First Amendment case involving vaccine refusal would likely wind up in the Supreme Court. Ironically, the ultra-conservatives on the bench are also strict constitutionalists who I believe would protect the right of refusal as free speech under the First Amendment. The nurse who was fired for refusing a flu shot would be a textbook test case should she want to go forward. Hopefully, a Democrat-controlled Congress will restore net neutrality legislatively and soon.

Thanks for informing the public about censorship of truth about vaccines and for speaking for those harmed by them. Vital vaccine information is needed to be able to make an informed decision. Although generally vaccines may be beneficial for some, for others it can be harmful and cause lifelong handicap[s] or death. With no test[s] to determine who will be hurt by vaccines, it's almost impossible to know who is most at risk...until damage is done which may be irreversible.

I agree with everything you said. Well spoken as usual. "Never give in. Never give in. Never, never, never, never--in nothing, great or small, large or petty--never give in, except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force. Never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy." Winston Churchill

You are correct. The entire internet is the problematic filter through which society has been processed without its express and informed consent. It was not "uncensored" as you say, from the beginning, however. It has always been covertly censored. First they do it, then they justify it. Terrorism was used to justify the fusion centers through which all internet traffic is monitored, recorded, censored, and by advanced methods, even ALTERED in real time. It was not hijacked by Wall Street. That is a facade. It was hijacked from the beginning by the whole polyglot of "archons" who seek total control of the Spirit by programming the body and soul by deception and coercion. The same evil will which wiped out the brilliant work of Rife in medicine, have done the same for Truth in general, by creating a monopolized conduit of social interaction which they have covertly dominated while using, simultaneously, false and disingenuous excuses, pretenses and pretexts to justify the same in a stepwise manner. They have also constructed this system to augment other operations of social control/engineering, known as a Full Spectrum Dominance approach involving Asymmetrical Warfare methods, especially INFORMATION OPERATIONS. The internet is a critical linchpin in their system, involving surveillance, phishing schemes, opinion manipulation, multilayered and multitiered hierarchical parallel control over all conventional transactions taking place upon it (as if a parallel entity entirely, like a totally foreign and alien entity viz the American People). Even the "Mandela Effect" is a psyop intended to falsely justify memory-holing information, which is the mechanism you have covered in your excellent presentation.

An interesting phenomenon that I usually encounter when discussing the pros and cons of vaccines, is the emotional rantings that ensue from the pro side of the matter. Ordinarily, my most stated complaint about text on the internet is that is is, for the most part, bereft of nuance. That is to say, the inflection of voice, or the body language of being up close and personal. Which is why I find it so amazing that once I'm engaged with the advocates of vaccination, once the discussion begins to turn southward (as can be expected in nearly ANY discussion presently about vaccinations as any digression from a 'hoo-RAY!!!!' from the pro vaccine side simply is NOT tolerated), there have been times that I can actually FEEL the quivering in their voice(s) as they are just that agitated. And that aspect alone is what is so disturbing about the issue. It's as though these people are petrified that if they question the orthodoxy here, they will inevitably end up questioning ALL their beliefs, and who the hell wants to go back to square A, really? For me, the best time to put a halt to things ill advised, and previous unjustified prejudices, is in the HERE, in the NOW, my feelings be damned.

Robert Williams best advice. Everything I can't find on Google I find easily on duckduckgo.

The New York Times made a claim that I think should be challenged. "On the internet, anti-vaccine propaganda has outpaced pro-vaccine public health information.” Since every news story and every public health agency constantly pushes the idea of vaccines as the savior of mankind, I wondered what would happen if I did a Google search for "vaccines". Out of the first 100 results, 87 were pro-vaccine, 5 were anti-vaccine, and 8 were neutral. In addition, among the books and advertisements, the pro-vaccine outnumbered the anti-vaccine 2-to-1. And none (absolutely zero, on page after page of Google search results) of the news stories were anti-vaccine. *VAERS comes up as the #11 result. That means someone who only looks at the first page of (10) results (like most people) would never see this. *Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System

Interesting read, a lot I hadn't heard or read before.

REALLY concerned about this, I listened to an NPR report today, an interview with the thought police from Pinterest...it's outrageous that they have decided they are the purveyors of all truth, and that they can use that basis to ELIMINATE vaccine information that is not to their liking. If Google, Bing, Yahoo and others start doing this, it's the beginning of the end of FREE SPEECH. America is a land of very ignorant people, dominated by a plutocracy of controlling financial interests increasingly squeezing any freedom from our clutches.

Ive been out of the loop on this subject for a few years but I’m very saddened to see what’s been happening. And what’s coming too by the looks. I just wonder if books will end up being banned in the future! I know that seems far fetched right now but it’s the logical progression of this directive to censor I want to thank all of you who run this site for all your efforts and research and for maintaining such dignity in what is an extremely emotive and confusing subject area.

There are some good alternatives for sites and programs that don't censor. I've been using MeWe more and more instead of Facebook, and I've started saving pages on Juxtapost and Pearltrees instead of Pinterest. I've been using DuckDuckGo for a search engine and there are some free non-google email sites like protonmail. It would be great to see a round-up of non-censoring web sites here in the future.

Thank you for everything you do, NVIC. Today, on my FB page, I posted this link to a petition asking the government to assign a commission to look at vaccine safety. It was immediately taken down and FB sent me a notice that it violated their community standards. A petition. To the government. Not an "anti vax" website. Not information on homeopathy and measles. Just a government petition. They tried to shut me down. Of course, I was only "triggered" to go into action and wrote everyone I know about it, along with sending the link. But at a certain point, they will succeed at shutting us down. I'm shocked that some of the web pages and FB pages are still up and running, if they can go after "little old me" and my FB posts. I don't know what can be done. I don't understand how FB monitors, how internet censoring is done, or whether there is any legal recourse for us. Here is the link I posted that was deemed a violation: https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/presidential-appointment-independent-vaccine-safety-commission?fbclid=IwAR0pCLLkQIaSE1g1_LelZlWNyw94OGEUODtbFyNSucOmF17AkVaoHSQM75s

And this from the NYT of all places. I am an avid Times reader but they have been Railing against the Vaccine choice community in a big way these last months. How do you reconcile the CDC refusing to protect the public from antibiotic resistent bacteria and the same organiation guilting and shaming parents into compliance with their over the top Vaccine schedule. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/04/06/health/drug-resistant-candida-auris.html?action=click&module=Well&pgtype=Homepage&section=Health

This was written in December. That future is NOW: Pinterest has blocked 'anti-vaccine' content, Amazon has pulled 'anti-vaccine' movies, Youtube is pulling commercials that have 'anti-vaccine' leanings, and Facebook is "deciding" what to do about 'anti-vaccine' content. I just did a search in google for phrases like "the problem with vaccines," and the search results returned only CDC, Mayo Clinic and other mainstream results. I conducted the same search in Internet Explorer, and received a completely different set of more balanced (pro/con) results. EVERYONE, pro-vax, anti-vax or in between should be concerned about this loss of our first amendment right.
