Legislative Update

May 4, 2022

As the legislative session draws to a close, IHCM is still working hard to pass legislation that would preserve our health freedom in Missouri. Unfortunately, however, we are up against considerable opposition from the health lobbyists and the legislators who listen to corporations and the healthcare establishment over individuals. To follow are the latest on two of the most important bills we have been following this year.

HB 2009 (Pollock)
Legislative Oversight Over School Vaccines Requirements

HB 2009 (Rep. Suzie Pollock) is the most popular bill in the House this year. We have been supporting it since it was filed December 2021.

Over 800 Missourians submitted witness forms in committee in support of this bill. 45 Missouri Representatives have co-sponsored it, which means they added their names to a list of representatives who officially support it.

However, Dean Plocher, the House Majority Floor Leader, who basically holds all the power in the Missouri House of Representatives, won’t let the bill get to the floor. Even when House members had a chance to vote on the language in HB 2009 as an amendment earlier in April, another House member with the support of the floor leader, submitted an amendment that gutted the first amendment, which was actually the text of HB 2009. In effect, he made the language of 2009 null and void except for an exemption form that is nearly the same as what we have now.

Because of the behind-the-scenes dealing of the House Majority Floor Leader, our efforts getting HB 2009 passed have been severely limited. As a result of Plocher’s actions, it’s likely that not enough time is left in this year’s legislative session to get this bill through both houses. Dean Plocher knows that, which is why he has blocked this and other important health freedom bills, while letting other less-important bills through.

We have not given up on HB 2009. Please continue to check back for action alerts on how we can get the provisions in this critical bill into statute to protect parents, children, and medical professionals who want to do what’s best for their patients.

The information we have on adverse events comes from a system created by the federal government to track vaccine reactions, including death.

VAERS is the most commonly known system to the public, but there are almost a dozen others. Unfortunately, according to both a Harvard study and an MGB study, fewer than 1% of vaccine adverse events are actually reported in the VAERS systems.

To learn more about the tactics used to block HB 2009, read here:

And thank you for continuing to support this legislation, even when we are up against the strongest most powerful opposition. We know that, with God’s help, we can do anything. Thank you for ACTING so quickly we we asked for your help. YOU are the reason this bill has moved as far as it has this session. Thank you!! And please continue to check here and on our social media groups for action alerts and the latest updates.

Every message from constituents count and we are so thankful for every person who has taken time to write and call legislators! Thank you!! We couldn’t do this without you!!

HB 1692 (Boggs)
Employer Liability

We are making progress on this important bill!

On Monday, April 25, HB 1692 (Rep. Mitch Boggs) passed the Missouri House of Representatives in a vote of 84-58. It now moves to the Senate where the process begins again. If passed, HB 1692 would simply make employers liable for injuries caused by the vaccines they mandate as a condition of employment.

It simply says that if you require your employee to get a shot, you have liability if they’re injured. It’s only fair.

“If the vaccines are 100% sound, then there’s nothing to worry about. There’ll be no court battles.”

— Rep. Mitch Boggs, sponsor of HB 1692

The information we have on adverse events comes from a system created by the federal government to track vaccine reactions, including death.

VAERS is the most commonly known system to the public, but there are almost a dozen others. Unfortunately, according to both a Harvard study and an MGB study, fewer than 1% of vaccine adverse events are actually reported in the VAERS systems.

HB 1692 would do more than any legislation we have read so far this year to discourage vaccine mandates, without putting unnecessary burdens on businesses.

Time is running out, however! In order to get this bill through the Senate and to the governor’s desk before the Missouri legislative session ends, by law, on May 30th, we need your full support. So, please continue to be vigilant with us and watch for action alerts that will help us get this critical bill across the finish line.

Check back here at or find us on Facebook (search for IHCM) and other social media for up-to-the-minute information on HB 1692 and all the bills we are following. And, once again, thank you for your support for health freedom!

Update on HB 2009
April 16, 2022

Betrayal in Jefferson City

Updated April 16, 2022

Thursday, April 14th, two Missouri state legislators, Rep Dean Plocher and Rep Rudy Veit, allowed the ultra-leftist Healthcare Industrial Complex to drive the agenda of unsuspecting members of the Missouri House of Representatives.

On the floor of the Missouri House, Floor Leader, Rep. Dean Plocher, allowed a bill he had previously blocked for weeks, HB 2009, to be brought to the floor as an amendment to another bill. Immediately afterward, Rep Rudy Veit offered an amendment to it, which literally stripped of all but one of its components. When questioned on the floor, Veit explained that he was offering his amendment as an improvement to the bill and the rights of parents, when his amendment actually took away all but one provision in the language — the form for vaccine exemptions.

This stunt was a slap in the face to HB 2009 bill sponsor, Suzie Pollock, and Missouri parents, who had worked so hard all year to pass this bill that would protect their children from DHSS overreach, as all Missourians have witnessed over the past two years with the Covid lockdowns.

See footage of what happened and an explanation in this video:

These legislators were following the bidding of leftist organizations like the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP). Here are examples of their policies from their own documents:

Those involved in grassroots legislation for decades agree that what happened on April 14th tops the list for pettiness and deceit.

Action Item for HB 2009!
Please do this TODAY!

1) Call and email your rep. You can find them here. Tell him/her to demand that House Majority Floor Leader, Rep. Dean Plocher, give HB 2009 a fair chance at debate. See this video for details.

2) Call and email Dean Plocher. Tell him you expect him to put an end to the pettiness and to stop helping the agenda of the leftist AAP. Tell him to allow HB 2009 floor time on April 19th. (Be civilized!)

Rep. Dean Plocher
Ph: 573-751-1544

By law, the Missouri legislature’s 2022 session must end the 2nd week in May. We have just a few weeks to get this legislation passed in Missouri. Please help us make this bill a reality for our Missouri children and parents!

Apr 4, 2022 From

This bill has a long history but it’s never been more important than it is today.

HB 2009, Rep. Suzie Pollock’s bill, would do several great things but these are my personal top two reasons why we need to get this bill moving again:

  • Secure religious AND conscientious vaccine exemptions for our children in school WITHOUT jumping through hoops created by the county health departments
  • No additional vaccines (Covid or otherwise) would be added to the school requirement list WITHOUT legislative approval.


Plocher is in control of which bills come to the House floor for perfection. Regardless of how the bill came through committee, it is Plocher’s decision whether or not the bill will be heard on the floor for debate and perfection.

He has 100% control of the passage of every bill. One person – total control. That’s just one of the HUGE problems our legislative system has and it desperately needs to be changed…but that’s a story for another day.

This bill has passed easily through two committees and yet is being held hostage by Plocher.

Short Answer: Plocher is a sellout to the lobbyists and he likes to buy and sell the votes of his peers. He doesn’t give a rats rear end about the people of Missouri. His interest is his pockets and his power – that’s about it.

Right now, he’s got the American Academy of Pediatrics to please, so he’d rather do that than protect our kids.

So, what are their priorities? Here are a couple of interest to you right now.

  • Removing RELIGIOUS exemptions on all vaccines
  • REQUIRING more vaccines of children of all ages, including a Covid vaccine for young children.
  • Pro abortion. They even support adolescents ability to get an abortion confidentially.
  • Anti gun. They’d like to see bans on some weapons.
  • Transgender agenda, including boys in girls locker rooms and women’s sports

They obviously want to see this bill die and Plocher is their water boy.

Well, they shouldn’t. But that’s exactly what’s happening.


1. Email & call Plocher’s office until all their inboxes are full.

Phone: 573-751-1544

Write a very SHORT, sincere paragraph and tell him what you want. Here’s an example.

Dear Rep Plocher,
I’m writing to request that you bring HB 2009 to the House floor for perfection. I strongly disagree with any additional vaccines being added to our school requirement list AND we need to protect our right to live according to our conscience. This right is given to us in the MO Constitution in Article 1 Sections 2 and 5.

I am the parent and I have the God-given right to CHOOSE what is best for the health of my children and family. Please put our wishes ahead of the AAP.

I want HB 2009 to pass because…..(keep it short & sweet).

I’m looking forward to your response.

Confessions Of A Scientism Heretic w/ Mike Donio

On this Alfacast Biotech scientist, Mike Donio tells us why he did not comply with the Cootie Mandate and that “the Science” is not to be trusted. Biotech scientist, Mike Donio, has quite a story to tell! With advanced degrees in Biochemistry & Molecular Biology from esteemed universities including a concentration in Biotechnology Enterprise from Johns Hopkins he’ll share the inside scoop on the so-called Scientific Method. During Mike’s two decades in the biotech and pharmaceutical industry he witnessed first-hand how trusting the science is exactly what we shouldn’t do, and what the Scientific Method really is. He’s going to show us the unknown mechanism for most approved drugs, and improper models and artifacts of preparation, insider knowledge about the reproducibility crises, cancer, viruses, and fraudulent tests. This experience spans the spectrum of drug discovery ranging from target identification through pre-clinical and IND-enabling studies. His first job as a scientist was in the lab of a top infectious disease doctor doing HIV research. Following that, he went into the pharma industry working several years at Schering-Plough which was subsequently acquired by Merck. Next, he decided to mix things up and worked for a few years at Eurofins, a Contract Research Organization. Finally, he spent the last 6 years at a biotech company in the Immuno-Oncology space, where he was most recently a Senior Scientist, developing antibodies to treat cancer. Despite this extensive experience and accomplishments over the last 20 years, Mike was let go from his most recent role at the biotech company for not complying with the Cootie mandate due to his deeply held religious beliefs. Mike’s aim is to encourage more scientists to speak out and for the people to become their own experts. We couldn’t agree more, and Mike’s courage to speak the truth during these times of universal deceit bespeaks the revolution in Consciousness now underway! Show Links:

SUBJECT: DHSS Rule Change – Covid Data Collection
Updated: 2/10/22

As we learned in the Robinson et. al. vs. DHSS decision, then again recently during the Donald Kauerauf confirmation hearing, The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS) is notorious for
overstepping their bounds through unconstitutional rules and regulations.

The latest example is a proposed change (referred to as an “amendment” to an existing rule or regulation) to the DHSS section of the Code of State Regulations, 19 CSR 20-20.020, which directs healthcare workers
and school administrators to send both positive AND NEGATIVE Covid-19 test results to the state.

This is simply an attempt to gather private data on every single Missourian.

What can you do?

Write a letter to DHSS explaining that you oppose the proposed amendment to 19 CSR 20-20.020, which was published in the Feb 1, 2022 Missouri Register.

Send to:
Adam Crumbliss, Director
Dept. of Health and Senior Services, Division of Community and Public Health
PO Box 570
Jefferson City, MO 65102

You can also explain that DHSS has abused their authority in the past with regard to data collection. Whatever you decide to say, just be sure to explain that you OPPOSE this proposed amendment.

DEADLINE to MAIL: Feb 27, 2022 DHSS must receive your letter by MARCH 2nd.

We Need Your Testimony!

Why is HB 2009 is so important?

Experts are saying that the Covid-19 shots are not working on the Omicron variant, but the federal government is still bribing Missouri schools to push the shots on kids 5 to 11 years old.

$1,900,000,000 ($1.9 Billion) worth of bribes!

To see how much the feds are bribing your local schools, download this document, assembled from pages on the Missouri Department of Secondary Education’s (DESE) website:

Just to give you an idea: Columbia: $23,556,677; Fulton: $3,738,871; Sullivan: $3,447,882; Strafford RVI: $2,068,529; Lee’s Summit R-VII: $10,065,188

Included in that PDF is a joint letter from the federal Department of Health and Human Services and federal Department of Education. It says they want your school to set up a vaccine clinic and bribe the children with things like “a new tablet,” “reasonable cash awards,” “college scholarship money,” and “new school supplies.”

This is an unprecedented effort to push a vaccine, and it’s only a matter of time before the Covid vaccine will be added to the list of mandated vaccines for school attendance.

Right now, the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services can unilaterally add vaccines to the mandated list by merely promulgating a rule. If they claim it’s an emergency rule, they can do it in just days.

HB 2009 would change that by creating legislative oversight of all childhood vaccine requirements. Unaccountable DHSS bureaucrats will no longer be able to make an end run around the legislature. That means with HB 2009 average citizens will have an opportunity to influence the process.

For an Executive Summary of the bill, go here:

Please join us at the hearing at noon, Wed 2/9. If you can’t be there, please fill out an online witness form HERE in support of HB2009.

Please help us stand strong for children!

What is This mRNA Stuff I’ve Been Hearing About?

Knowledge is power and we are in the midst of one of the greatest information wars in human history.  The best ammo that you can have is to do your own research so, that you are well armed with an understanding of the issues we face today.  At the forefront of all issues these days is… drum roll… COVID-19!!  Shocked, right?  Bet you never would have guessed.  Let’s put aside for a minute all those thoughts and questions you have about the virus and delve into the heart of a choice we are now all being faced with daily.  To vaccinate or not, that is the question.  Today I want to help arm you with a little bit of background on the key element of at least two of the main Covid-19 vaccines that are currently in use.  Before 2020 I bet hardly anyone heard the term “mRNA”.  Now everyone is likely being bombarded with it but, do you know what it really is and what it does?  It’s a critical point to understand and it might even surprise you.  So, let’s dig into mRNA!  And no, you don’t need an advanced degree in biology to understand this.  

Disclaimer: Do not believe a word I say!  Wait.  What??  So, why am I wasting my time with this?  I have 20 years of experience as a research scientist and what I will present below will certainly draw on the knowledge I have ascertained over those years but don’t stop there.  My goal is to motivate you to do your own research and validate what I’ve told you.  Frankly that’s best practice for anything you read these days.  

Alright, so what is this mRNA stuff I’ve been hearing about?  First off, mRNA stands for messenger RNA and RNA stands for ribonucleic acid, so put together its messenger ribonucleic acid.  That’s a mouthful and certainly doesn’t clarify anything.  In order to understand what mRNA is and what it is used for we need to take a small step back.  Not that far, but just back to what is typically the source template for all mRNA or DNA, otherwise known as deoxyribonucleic acid.  I assume most people have heard of DNA but, in case you haven’t here is a brief primer.  DNA, or Deoxyribonucleic Acid is basically like a computer programing code for all of life.  It is made up of nucleotide base pairs (AT or GC), the sequence of which encode genes. The sequence of ATGCs tells the cell which proteins to make as they are needed, thus why it is known as the genetic code.  mRNA is a key part of translating that sequence of DNA nucleotides into a protein.  

DNA has been proposed to exist in a helical structure of two paired strands.  When a gene is expressed the first thing that happens is the DNA is converted into RNA by a process known as transcription.  RNA is single stranded and as you will see this is required to get it translated into the amino acid sequence that makes up a protein.  The RNA transcript then undergoes several steps of processing which in turn leads to it becoming messenger RNA.  See when the RNA strand is first produced from the DNA template it contains regions which do not encode anything, or so we are told.  These are known as introns, and they are removed or spliced out of the RNA leaving only the parts that encode for the desired protein or exons.  The RNA molecule then gets some additions to its ends prior to being considered mature mRNA.  It is from this piece of mRNA that the resulting protein will be made.  

Before we go any further, I want to make one other key point.  The DNA exists in the nucleus and the entire piece of genomic DNA is an incredibly long molecule.  To manage this and fit it is wound around proteins known as histones to form structures which are called nucleosomes.  These are further bunched up and ultimately come together in what we know as chromosomes.  Each cell has two pairs of each chromosome and humans have 23 so, this would be 46 in total.  Pretty amazing, right?

Well, the DNA is transcribed into RNA in the nucleus as one might expect but, then it needs to be transported out for the other steps.  This part bears further pondering but, we can save that for another post.  Moving along, the transcribed RNA having been moved out of the nucleus is processed into mature mRNA.  It then moves into what is known as a ribosome where it becomes the template for the amino acids which make up a given protein.  Just to quickly back up, proteins are essentially chains of amino acids that have various structures and functions.  If it’s helpful we can go further into all of this in another post but, I don’t want to veer too far off from our focus of mRNA.  So, just to recap we have DNA being transcribed into RNA which is processed into mRNA which in turn serves as a template or code which enables translation into a protein.  This is what in biology is known as the Central Dogma (DNA à RNA à protein).  

Now here’s where it gets interesting and why there is a lot of controversy surrounding the use of mRNA for vaccines.  For a while the assumption was that this process on flowed in one direction.  In other words, you could only go from DNA to RNA to protein and not backwards or have any other outcome.  But what if that is not entirely correct and let’s say for example that RNA could be written back into DNA?  In theory, that would mean that a change that occurred in the RNA could be conferred back into the DNA where it would be passed on to daughter cells upon division.  In fact, it is now known that by a process called reverse transcription that it is possible.1,2,3 Wow, right?  Now stay with me here for just a bit longer.  An important thing to note about mRNA is that it is thought to only persist for a short time, just long enough to enable translation into a protein and is then rapidly degraded.  In that case, it might not be as likely for it to be reverse transcribed back into DNA.  Now if you were to modify the mRNA such that it would persist longer to ensure that you go a significant amount of protein production.  Well then you may increase the chance that it could be rewritten back into the DNA.  It’s also not clear what other impacts that modification might have.  In fact, mRNA is highly immunogenic which is one reason why it doesn’t persist long.  So, what might happen if it were to stick around a lot longer that naturally intended?  You may invoke an undesirable immune response for example.  This just happens to be what they are doing to the mRNA in these new so-called vaccines for Covid-19.  The original name of one of the big companies making these vaccines literally was ModeRNA Therapeutics with the idea being to use modified RNA as a therapeutic.  As one of their top scientists said in a 2017 TED talk, “We are actually hacking the software of life”4.   

At this point, I want to send you off to do your own research and make sure that I haven’t deceived you.  Might also be a good time to ask yourself whether you are comfortable with a big corporation who is heavily funded by the government and other big global interests having the ability to hack the software of your life.  Last I checked God is the author all life so, this would be directly opposed to him.  Now that’s something to consider!

God Bless and go to battle!
