RFK Jr. Is Right: Hg Causes Autism

As people attack RFK Jr.'s new book and say a link between ethylmercury (thimerosal) in vaccines and autism has been disproven, tell them this: the second child ever diagnosed with autism (1943) had a father who was experimenting with ethylmercury...

UConn's Seth Kalichman Funded By Gates Foundation To Surveil So Called Anti-Vaccine Citizens

Bill-gates_reut Kalichman"Community Corrections"

“So it's an absolute lie that has killed thousands of kids. Because the mothers who heard that lie, many of them didn't have their kids take either pertusses or measles vaccine, and their children are dead today. And so the people who go and engage in those anti-vaccine efforts -- you know, they, they kill children…” -- Bill Gates


(Professor Seth Kalichman on UConn on left and Bill Gates on right.)

By Lou Conte

I have worked in a curious branch of law enforcement referred to as “Community Corrections” for over 28 years. Most days I am involved in helping people turn their lives around, helping people make better decisions and then holding them accountable if they don’t. The work can be interesting and mundane. It can be challenging and frustrating. It can be satisfying and it can be terrifying. You either get comfortable with dichotomy or uncomfortable with cognitive dissonance.

This work is done in the community – hence “Community Corrections” – and you had better be on your game and keep your eyes open because there are no bars separating you from the people you are dealing with.

The criminal justice system has reasonable procedures for dealing with people accused of violating the law. People charged with crimes are afforded certain rights, commonly referred to as Due Process Rights. These rights are built into the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments to the Constitution. A defendant will have access to legal representation, will have the right to know what they are being charged with and they will have the right to mount a defense. The upshot is that people have rights and before you can impose the authority of the state on them, some burdens must be met.

I will be the first to tell you that the system isn’t perfect. But before the system labels a person as an “offender”, there is a legal process.  

If, in the end, a person is found guilty, the state can impose a sentence on the person. The offender can be incarcerated or sentenced to probation. If the offender is sentenced to probation, they get a set of conditions that they have to follow and have to look across the table at a guy like me.  

Lately, however, I find myself feeling as though I am on the other side of the table.

White Out SyringeIt seems that there is a new concept of “Community Corrections.” Apparently, I am a member of a community of people that needs to be corrected. That community is made up of people who ask questions about vaccines safety, who ask questions about the nation’s vaccine program or who ask if some cases of autism are the result of vaccine injuries. Ask any of these questions, and you are guilty of being “anti-vaccine.”

It seems that I am guilty. I confess that I have asked questions like that. This doesn’t mean that I have received meaningful or intelligent answers to my questions. In fact, I received so few answers from those in the federal government on a project that I was working on that I eventually co-authored a paper called Unanswered Questions from the National Vaccine Injury Compensation ProgramHolland, Krakow, Colin and I published a peer reviewed paper in the Pace Environmental Law Review in which we reported that the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program had been compensating a lot of vaccine injured children who also had autism. This had gone on for years but the government never disclosed it. The “Vaccine Court” then held the Omnibus Autism Proceedings as if none of this had gone on and issued terse rulings criticizing the petitioners.  

But I digress….

No court has found me guilty of doing anything wrong. In fact, I haven’t even been charged with anything. No petitions have been filed against me in the “Anti-Vaccine Court.” Just asking the questions seems to be all that is necessary to get the label. That is the extent of Due Process in this arena.

If one assigns this label simply because a group of people have asked questions about vaccine safety, then there are a lot of people who are “anti-vaccine” – including those people in the United States government who passed a law called The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986. They obviously had questions once.

And yet, it seems that I am about to placed under surveillance, along with all the other people who Mariohave asked vaccine questions. If I write something questioning vaccine safety (maybe even something like what I doing now), I may well find myself in the cross hairs of an Internet surveillance program funded by one of the richest men on earth – Bill Gates. It seems that Gates has decided to give University of Connecticut Psychology Professor Dr. Seth Kalichman $100,000 for "Establishing an Anti-Vaccine Surveillance and Alert System," which intends to "establish an internet-based global monitoring and rapid alert system for finding, analyzing, and counteracting misinformation communication campaigns regarding vaccines to support global immunization efforts."

So Dr. Kalichman intends to monitor people like us and quickly report his findings back to some unidentified entity (Bill Gates?) and then do stuff (we don’t know what) in response. Dr. Kalichman does not have to run his activities by a judge, as professionals involved in real community corrections do. He doesn’t even have to really

define who he is monitoring and who he will direct his counter measures on. Apply the label, conduct surveillance, report back (rapidly) to Bill (I guess) and then do something to or about those people.

That doesn’t really sit right with me. Last I heard, the Constitution protected speech, even speech that questions the government. And, please, questioning vaccine safety is not equivalent to yelling “fire” in a movie theatre. If it were, Congress wouldn’t have passed the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act in 1986.

With these concerns in mind, I reached out to Dr. Kalichman with the following emails:


-------- Begin forwarded message --------
Subject: Grant from Gates Foundation
Date: 9/5/12  
From: "Louis Conte" <triotsl@optonline.net >
To: seth.k@uconn.edu 


Dear Dr. Kalichman:

I am the father of triplet boys, age 12. Two of my boys have autism. I fully disclose that I am concerned that vaccine injuries may have lead to my sons suffering brain damage and, eventually, autism.

I have worked in law enforcement and the courts for over 28 years in Westchester County. I mention this because some of my questions connect to my background.

I have read an on-line article that states that you are receiving some funding from the gates Foundation for the purposes of "Establishing an Anti-Vaccine Surveillance and Alert System," which intends to "establish an internet-based global monitoring and rapid alert system for finding, analyzing, and counteracting misinformation communication campaigns regarding vaccines to support global immunization efforts."

I recognize that one can not trust everything that one reads on the internet. However, is this accurate?

Is it really ethical to conduct surveillance on people just because they question the safety of a medical product? This seems to be an odd thing for a university professor to do.

How will you decide what makes a person (or a group of people) "anti-vaccine"? How will you actually conduct the surveillance of these people? Who does the "rapid alert" go to? What will the "counteracting" be like?

I would like to talk to you about this project if you are willing.

Please feel free to call me at 914-XXX-XXXX

Sincerely,

Louis Conte

 

My first email went, well, unanswered. So I sent another one.

Dear Dr. Kalichman:
I have done some minor digging and verified that you are indeed the recipient of grant money from the Gates Foundation under Grand Challenges in Global health. "Establishing an Anti-Vaccine Surveillance and Alert System - Seth Kalichman of the University of Connecticut in the U.S. will establish an internet-based global monitoring and rapid alert system for finding, analyzing, and counteracting misinformation communicator campaigns regarding vaccines to support global immunization efforts."

So, I guess to answer one of my questions (you didn't respond to my previous email), this is true.

So, once again, I will ask: Is it really ethical to conduct surveillance on people just because they question the safety of a medical product? How will you decide what makes a person (or a group of people) "anti-vaccine"? How will you actually conduct the surveillance of these people? Who does the "rapid alert" go to? What will the "counteracting" be like?

Again, I would like to discuss your project.

Sincerely,

Louis Conte

Well, Dr. Kalichman didn’t answer my emails. I was getting the sense that he didn’t seem interested in discussing his project with me. Given my label, it seems that my concerns were not worth responding to. In my line of work, you learn as much as possible about the people you are keeping an eye on so that you get some perspective on them as people. This struck me as disrespectful and just a little bit unethical.

So, I decided to look up the University of Connecticut’s Code of Ethics. Sure enough, it turns out that Dr. Kalichman’s project could be in conflict with the code of ethics that he is supposed to be working under – particularly in the Respect section…

The University of Connecticut Ethics Statement

The standards contained in this Code of Conduct reflect the University of

Connecticut’s core values as they have been articulated over time by generations of

faculty, staff, administrators, students and the State of Connecticut. These values are

essential and enduring tenets of our organization. A statement of these values, while

reiterating concepts already well understood, is helpful in outlining the context in

which our Code will operate. Please be advised that violation of the standards in

this Code of Conduct may result in appropriate disciplinary measures up to and

including dismissal.

Knowledge:

Members of the University community value truth, the pursuit of truth, intellectual

curiosity and academic freedom. Our faculty and students seek to create new

knowledge and are committed to sharing ideas, research findings and the products

of intellectual and creative pursuits with the broader community.

Honesty:

Members of the University community are truthful and sincere in their words and

actions and do not intentionally mislead others or provide inaccurate information.

Integrity:

Institutional and individual behaviors at the University reflect fundamental moral

and ethical values. Our actions are beyond reproach and avoid both the fact and the

appearance of impropriety.

Respect:

The University honors and respects individuality and demonstrates tolerance for the personal beliefs and cultural differences of all individuals. As members of an academic community, we seek to foster a spirit of civility and collegiality through open and honest communication. We strive to protect the health, safety and wellbeing of all persons. We protect the private and confidential information that is provided by our patients and research participants, faculty, administrators, staff, students, volunteers and others. We value an environment that is free from harassment, intimidation, bullying, incivility, disrespect and violence.

Professionalism:

The University and its members expect that the professional standards and

requirements that are applicable to the academic, research, clinical, engagement,

administrative and other professions comprising our community will be followed.

We are responsible and accountable for our actions and are expected to make reasonable efforts to comply with all applicable federal, state and local government laws and regulations. As individuals and as an institution, we also strive to follow ethical

business practices and to act as good stewards of the resources made available to us.

I guess that the Respect section doesn’t apply to people labeled “Anti-vaccine.”

Now, Dr. Kalichman is not a bad guy. In fact, I give the man a perfect score of 10 on the “Snooker Scale” because he has managed to pry $100,000 from Bill Gates for simply reading the Age of Autism every morning. I wish I had come up with that idea (Maybe I can request some money from Uncle Bill by submitting a grant to develop counter-measures against those people who say that his software is lousy).

And this snookering is even more artful when it is clear that many vaccine “questioners” are already “monitored.”

If you look Dr. Kalichman up on the Internet, you will see that he is concerned about the spread of AIDS around the world and has written a book about that issue. He is also donating any profits from the sale of the book to help fight AIDS. Dr. Kalichman has some interesting thoughts about some people who question the scientific consensus that AIDS is caused by a virus. I don’t know if he equates those people with people he considers to be “anti-vaccine.”

I don’t know because he didn’t answer my emails.

But I do know that it is wrong to assign a label to people you don’t know and haven’t taken the time to learn about. It is a way of marginalizing people so that you don’t have to consider them as fully human. And once you have marginalized someone, you don’t have to listen to them.

It is not what a member of academia should do.

So, I sent Dr. Kalichman one last email:

Dr. Kalichman:

Well, I guess that you don't intend to respond to my earlier emails.

That is fine.

I am not going to send you any more.

However, I would ask that you take the time to get to get to know some of your research subjects - some of those "anti-vaccine" people. I am certainly willing to introduce you to some of the people that you are likely going to be keeping an eye on. Actually having a conversation with some of them - instead of just surveilling them on the Internet - might be an eye opening experience for you. I think that you and the University of Connecticut should do that before you commence your surveillance project. My opinion is that doing so would be more consistent with UCONN's code of ethics.

And to that point, let me state I regard this project as being unethical. The nation's vaccine program is but one aspect of Public Health Policy. That means that the public is invited to participate in discussions around the policy and, yes, even question it. Accepting Bill Gates' money and labeling those you intend to surveil as "anti-vaccine" does not make it ethical to do so. Particularly since your project intends some form of vague "countermeasures."

Our nation’s universities used to be places of academic freedom and open debate. The program you have agreed to administer seems more like something that Joe McCarthy would run back in the Cold War days.

Sincerely,

Louis Conte

Is surveilling people on the internet really appropriate academic research? Is Dr. Kalichman unfairly labeling people who have done nothing more than asked questions and express concerns about the safety of a medical product? Is this furtive conduct that infringes upon the rights of people to speak openly? Does it place Dr. Kalichman in conflict his university’s code of ethics? Is the project ethical just because Bill Gates is paying for it?

I really don’t know. My questions went unanswered.

they have to flog the 'denialist' meme for all it's worth, that's how the Empire works,and stigmatising anti-vaccinists is another meme they work on, it keeps all the workers in Allopathy Inc pointing in the right direction. Bill Gates reminds me of the Cylons in Battle Star Gallactica in that he looks the part of a genuine philanthropist yet his true colours are there for all to see now http://whale.to/vaccine/bill_gates.html

There ought to be a limit as to what money can buy. People, countries, the planet and outer space need protection from out of control billionaires, whether presenting as individuals, foundations or corporations.

The kind of research/database that UConn is pursuing is stalking. (Would your neighbor be able to monitor where you go and what you say? What would that be called?) UConn and The Gates Foundation should face legal action. They should be stopped.

We the People need to demand our privacy, our right to free speech, our right to freely associate, and our right to question. Lou, you write that our Constitution protects free speech, even speech that questions the government. I would add, *especially* free speech that questions the government and especially anyone trying to sell or force drugs and/or treatments on any citizen, especially anyone trying to medicalize normalcy. A citizen of the U.S. not only has the right to question, we have a responsibility to question in order to maintain our democratic free society. At least that's the way it's supposed to be. We are supposed to question. We are not supposed to be stalked or intimidated for doing so.

We the People need to reach out to all People across the globe, to jointly put in place protections for all. Profiteers historically invade less developed nations, those less equipped to fend off madmen, charlatans, opportunists, and wolves in sheeps' clothing.

Last, but not least,
Birgit, so sorry to learn what happened to you and your son. May those in power learn from your tragic loss.

"If the medical establishment was to ever admit that vaccines cause autism, the question that would inevitably follow is... what the hell else are vaccines causing?"

Sir you have opened the gates of hell! Once we start to question "authority" our belief in "authority" may be so shattered either we or "authority" will be forced to CHANGE.

Authority telling us they have at least indirectly murdered and maimed us by MANY "health care" et al methods, all our lives. Heresy!

"The refusal by governments to evaluate the risks properly will make this one of the greatest scandals in medical history. There are very powerful people in positions of great authority who have staked their reputations on the safety of MMR and they are willing to do almost anything to protect themselves."

"I'm surprised that primary African green monkey kidney cells continue to be used, and I'm a little bit disappointed that FDA and whoever is involved had not had a more serious effort to move away from primary African green monkey kidneys.

Maybe they're caused by viruses, but maybe they're not." http://www.fearoftheinvisible.com/cannot-clean-the-vaccine , Note folks pardon my french but if you get ANY NEEDLE in your arm you are nuts.

“Dr Heyrick told of how the eminent Dr Maurice Hilleman, the scientist I had earlier interviewed about the MMR vaccine, had used what he thought was an ‘intestine-based cell line' to make an adenovirus vaccine, only to discover to his horror that his cell line had been invaded and taken over by the aggressive cervical cancer virus known as HeLa. I also learnt that DNA fragments contaminating vaccine lots might be from dead cells but nevertheless remained extremely active and dangerous. Dr Golding feared they might combine with other genetic codes contaminating the vaccine lots - and thus create a mutant viral strain that could even get in the individual doses of vaccine. The removal of this contaminating DNA has proved impossible. … Thus high levels of hazardous DNA pollution remain in many vaccines.” From official US transcripts of recent unreported meetings of US and UK vaccine safety scientists

@Shiv,
I can't wait for the debate between you and Bill Gates! I'll be sure to mark my calendar for when hell freezes over.

re: “questioning vaccine safety is not equivalent to yelling 'fire' in a movie theatre”

Autism Grandma, it is legal to yell "fire" in a movie theatre if there is a fire. What Louis is referring to is that there are some limitations on free speech, one of which might be creating panic by yelling "fire" in a crowded place when there is no fire and people could be injured in the resulting panic.

"'Shouting fire in a crowded theatre' is a popular metaphor and frequent paraphrasing of Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.'s opinion in the United States Supreme Court case Schenck v. United States in 1919. The paraphrasing does not generally include the word falsely, which was originally used and highlights that speech which is dangerous and false, which can be distinguished from that which is truthful but also dangerous. The quote is used as an example of speech which is claimed to serve no conceivable useful purpose and is extremely and imminently dangerous."
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shouting_fire_in_a_crowded_theater

According to another site:
"Though the image often represents illegal speech, 'shouting fire in a crowded theater' refers to an outdated legal standard. At one point, the law criminalized such speech, which created a 'clear and present danger.' But since 1969, for speech to break the law, it can’t merely lead others to dangerous situations. It must directly encourage others to commit specific criminal actions of their own.

"The idea of falsely shouting 'fire' in a crowded theater arose from the Supreme Court’s 1919 decision in the case Schenck v. United States. The Court ruled unanimously that the First Amendment, though it protects freedom of expression, does not protect dangerous speech. In the decision, Oliver Wendell Holmes wrote that no free speech safeguard would cover someone 'falsely shouting fire in a theater and causing a panic'.

"The case in question did not involve fires, theaters or general panic. It instead concerned a man’s conviction for protesting the First World War’s military draft. The man, Charles Schenck, had printed 15,000 fliers that encouraged readers to resist conscription. The Espionage Act of 1917 and the Sedition Act of 1918 criminalized such an offense, said prosecutors. "
http://civil-liberties.yoexpert.com/civil-liberties-general/is-it-legal-to-shout-%22fire%22-in-a-crowded-theater-19421.html

We are not shouting "fire" falsely, and what we are saying does serve a useful purpose. But some think that any talk of vaccine problems is like falsely shouting "fire".

"... Although by the experience of ourselves and the other 5000+ autism cases thrown out of the VC, it is obvious that their primary goal is to prevent the public from realizing that VACCINES CAUSE AUTISM,...."

*************

I agree with you AutismGrandma, but I believe the VC is motivated by more than just a public awareness that vaccines cause autism.

If the medical establishment was to ever admit that vaccines autism, the question that would inevitably follow is... what the hell else are vaccines causing??

And when people finally starts looking into this, it wont take them long to discover that vaccines also cause SIDS... and childhood leukaemia... and childhood diabetes... and childhood asthma... and childhood arthritis ... and every other autoimmune disorder that you think of.

Parents will come to realize that their children were also assaulted right under their noses, by the very people that they trusted to protect them. And those parents are going to be furious!!

I am a well known vaccine opponent. I invite Bill Gates or any vaccine proponent to debate this issue with me at any public platform.

It isn't surprising that Gates has moved from computers to vaccines. Gates's orginal "genius" was not to have the best software but to make everyone in the world by hook or by crook (not without constraint of trade) take it. Now he is doing the same with vaccines.

http://ethics.csc.ncsu.edu/commerce/anticompetitive/dominance/microsoft/study.php

Birgit:

Bill Gates should talk to parents of children injured by vaccines instead of repeating shallow talking points offered by the pharma ministry of truth.

The FDA and CDC have not established no-effect levels of mercury injury to human cells, particularly brain cells. Your conclusion is correct. "But since mercury is poisonous in very small quantities and attacks cells, the only necessity for proof of effect is its presence in human tissues or fluids. It doesn't take much to kill cells. If it can be detected, it is likely to be harmful." Birgit Calhoun (2003) http://www.stanford.edu/~bcalhoun/amalgam.htm

You have my condolences for your son.

Dear Mr. Conte,

What an excellent and revealing article this is. I will be sure to also read "Unanswered Questions from the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program". I really should not attempt to address this issue prior to reading your paper since I do not have extensive knowledge regarding the Vaccine Court. However, considering that my daughter and I just had a conversation this week with the attorney representing my grandson's vaccine injuries in that Kangaroo Court (oops I mean "Vaccine Court"), I will address this from a personal experience perspective.

The VC (I just had the most amazing connection of "VC" to "Viet Cong").... anyway, the VC Special Master has given our attorney one hoop after the next to jump through and he has valiantly obliged them. Now they are demanding legal evidence that my grandson's encephalopathy must be proven by a 24 hour period of total lack of response during that tiny window of the first 14 days required to meet the vaccine causation. Well, the medical record notes state "periods of staring off with no response to stimuli" etc. which did occur daily during this initial 14 day period. These were the only periods when he was "calm" since he was in total Zombie-Land. The rest of the time he was screaming bloody murder non-stop and couldn't even sleep at night. The irony of this is that my grandson rapidly deteriorated into a 24-7 ZOMBIE with no eye contact and no recognition of us or response to us for more than an entire YEAR, but is that enough for the Vaccine Court to recognize “chronic encephalopathy”? Apparently not. It was not until we discovered Methly B-12 and Glutathione that he slowly but surely started returning to us [Thank You GOD and D.A.N.] Even with these therapies and a myriad of other nutritional supplements and natural treatments, it still took all these five years to restore him to a relatively normal state. (note the key word here is "relatively", meaning in scientific terms that although he still has alot of problems, and still has to get 90% of his nutrients through bottle feedings and still wears a diaper (Thank You MMR), scientifically speaking, he is still "relatively" a hell of alot better off than he was in the beginning when his one year vaccines directly resulted in his losing his ability to walk and talk, and yadda yadda yadda. [BTW although the terms "hell" and "yadda yadda yadda" are very scientific in description, the VC does not seem to understand plain English, much less sophisticated scientific terminology.]

The end result being that after jumping through all the hoops it has become apparent that even if we could jump through this latest hoop, the VC would only create ANOTHER IMPOSSIBLE HOOP TO JUMP THROUGH, and therefore all things considered the attorney feels there is no alternative but to dismiss the case yadda yadda yadda.

Regarding the scientific term "surveil", I am wondering if this has anything to do with our case in the VC...because I suspect that they have their own surveillance on anyone involved in that so called "court" and I would not be surprised if they figured out who "AutismGrandma" is and therefore would not want AutismGrandma to have any money to enable her more time and ability to speak out about the fact that VACCINES CAUSE AUTISM. Although by the experience of ourselves and the other 5000+ autism cases thrown out of the VC, it is obvious that their primary goal is to prevent the public from realizing that VACCINES CAUSE AUTISM, and therefore the autism cases must now disappear completely from the VC....no more autism awards whatsoever, because then the public might start wondering if maybe 2+2=4 thus resulting in the revelation that VACCINES CAUSE AUTISM. [Because most people can figure out basic math even if they do not have the mathematical genius for Calculus]

Regarding the word "surveil", I respectfully submit that it would be more scientifically accurate to utilize the word "SPY", as in FBI, CIA, "Nazi Spies" etc. They spy on anyone who isn't going along with the Nazi Party Agenda and then figure out how to undermine them with counter-propaganda and whatever else that Boris and Natasha undercover spies do. And just like with the VC, the propaganda is produced in a very scientific manner with very scientific fraudulent studies to support their very scientific pro-vaccine agenda, so that the very scientific Vaccine Industry can continue laughing all the way to the bank.

Thank you AoA for being here to allow me to vent my frustrations with the VC.
(I keep thinking “V-iet C-ong”..sorry can’t help it) ) I also realize that I am “speaking to the choir” here so I appreciate your listening ears.

Mr. Conte, I do fully support every single word that you wrote here, except for this one single phrase:

“questioning vaccine safety is not equivalent to yelling “fire” in a movie theatre”

It is because we ARE yelling “fire” in a movie theatre, that we are targeted:

Everyone must stay in the movie theatre with their children to watch the entire movie in spite of the risk of being burned alive. After all, the Fire Department will arrive, and most of the innocent children will escape with their lives, and it will only be that unfortunate minority that will have their brains burned into oblivion. But that’s OK because these tragic few usually don’t actually die from the fire, they just “lose their lives” in other aspects, and go on to be permanently disabled burn victims with a lot of scars that never heal.

Great article Louis!

Dear Bill Gates

As a member of the Peoples Committee for Counter Surveillance I wish to present our preliminary findings on one "Bill Gates"

Bill Gates was born to wealthy parents. His father was a mover and shaker in the Democrat Party with eugenic tendencies. Bill Gates seems to often present the visage and behavior of one who has been damaged by vaccination. A high functioning aspergers if you will.

Mister Gates became quite wealthy when he somehow convinced IBM a key creator of computers and operating systems to give him the franchise for small computer operating systems. Apparently IBM knew little about computers and operating systems. In any case what gates was "given" turned out to be worth MANY tens of billions of dollars. We are currently investigating this strange aspect of computing history in detail but for now we can say there appears to have been some quid pro quo given by gates for this multi-billoin dollar "gift".

We are currently working on gates' connection with the global depopulation agenda and his funding a key method of depopulation "vaccination" but are not ready to release these findings at this time.

Thank You Comrade ворота

$100,000 for an international anti-anti-vaccine surveillance program?

Reminds me of Dr. Evil when he thought $1 million was a fortune:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jTmXHvGZiSY

Isn't that pocket change for Bill Gates? Why does he even bother?

However, I completely agree with Lou that an institution of higher learning - a public university no less - should not be bought off by pharma to follow "anti-vaccinationsts" (or anyone else for that matter) on the internet.


Its so odd that a Computer King wants to be involved with vaccines in the first place! Concerns about population growth in 3rd world countries.

"... Now look what happens to the levels of inorganic mercury in infant monkeys given vaccines with thimerosal preservatives. “The average concentration of inorganic Hg did not change across the 28 days of washout and was approximately 16 ng/mL [parts per billion](Figure 7).”

Where are your efforts to protect children from this insane use of a neurotoxin in flu shots recommended for children and pregnant women?...."

*************************

I'm sure Bill Gates is extremely concerned about this, when it comes to his own kids. Who I'm sure have never received a vaccine of any kind, let alone one that is known to contain mercury.

It's all those .... other kids in the world that Bill is so interested in poisoning. I mean, saving.

It just sounds like propaganda scare tactics. Trying to make parents think that they are under the thumb of the government. I mean, $100,000? That's only going to pay one or two vaccin-nazi trolls salary for a year, its going to take a lot more than that to stop the truth. Bring it on. They seem to forget we still have voices, telephones, mail, everything is not computerized yet...dissent is not going away that easily

I seriously suggest a well formulated petition to the appropriate officers of UConn, expressing the ethics concerns noted. I also have to ask - why is a psychology professor conducting this work, as the problems people are concerned about with vaccines are actually medical ?

Groups that help citizens create petitions of this kind include SignOn.org, SumofUs.org, Change.org and others.

These things may take sacrifice of time and energy on our part, but appear to be the price of freedom in our time.

As the god of deserts he protects the caravans which travel through the desert, but he also causes sandstorms which bring him into conflict with the fertility god Osiris...........he (Seth) was a peril for ordinary Egyptians in the underworld, where he was said to seize the souls of the unwary." http://www.pantheon.org/articles/s/seth.html

"Caravans"=pharma profits

Correction: I meant to say gold mining instead of mercury mining.

Lou .. do you think Gate's "anti-vaccine" Gestapo squad will eventually come knocking on the doors of the majority of Supreme Court Justices who supported the decision stating that vaccines are "unavoidably unsafe"?

I'd say the odds are good that Herr Kalichman of the Vaccine Gatestapo will be as much fun as Sgt. Shultz and Colonel Klink rolled into one.

My number one research project has been mercury and its nasty effects. It's ok to talk about lead. But mercury seems to be taboo. There was a recent NPR discussion about lead, and lead caused those children to die in Nigeria where lots of gold mining is going on. There was not a word about mercury even though it's used in mercury mining and there is a synergist effect between lead and mercury.

Through my research of mercury I came to the vaccine issue. I was given a Rubella vaccine when I was pregnant with my third child. He turned out to be severely retarded. He never talked. In a word he was autistic. He was born in 1970 (he died two years ago). That rubella vaccine, it turns out, should not be given to pregnant mothers. I found out about the MMR issue around the year 2000. At first I didn't think there was anything to that. But the more I investigated, the more sceptical I became. I would love to be surveiled and get into a discussion with Bill Gates about what he is going.

Dear Bill Gates:

Mercury is a transition metal. Look at what happens to the central processer units used in personal computers if they are contaminated above parts per billion heavy metals. “Transition metals, in particular, must be kept below parts per billion concentrations for electronic applications.”
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wafer_(electronics)

Now look what happens to the levels of inorganic mercury in infant monkeys given vaccines with thimerosal preservatives. “The average concentration of inorganic Hg did not change across the 28 days of washout and was approximately 16 ng/mL [parts per billion](Figure 7).”

Where are your efforts to protect children from this insane use of a neurotoxin in flu shots recommended for children and pregnant women?

Presumably, scientists like Peter Aaby

or Tom Jefferson

http://www.spiegel.de/international/world/interview-with-epidemiologist-tom-jefferson-a-whole-industry-is-waiting-for-a-pandemic-a-637119.html

who have less than religious zeal in support of the vaccine industry will be found to be suffering from advanced psychosis.

What a stinker!

This has been happening across the board. Corporate, State, tomato tomahto.

The State Dept started it all in 2008, officially, by hiring policy wonk Cass Sunstein to do exactly this same thing to people who run "conspiracy theory" websites. Quotes from Sunstein's initial proposal :

""Government agents (and their allies) might enter chat rooms, online social networks, or even real-space groups and attempt to undermine percolating conspiracy theories by raising doubts about their factual premises, causal logic or implications for political action." "We can readily imagine a series of possible responses. (1) Government might ban conspiracy theorizing. (2) Government might impose some kind of tax, financial or otherwise, on those who disseminate such theories."

They're creating even more bureaucracies to stifle dissent. I would say "Welcome to the USSR", but when it eventually gets too out of hand, welcome to China. They've already written the laws to shut the internet down, "legally".

Huskie is right- post far and wide. Make them look stupid- which they're actually starting to do pretty well all by themselves. The only consolation here is that the math sadly doesn't seem to add up in their favour. There have to be way more people who feel they have been injured by vaccines or other environmental causes than "them" (the surveillors) -look at all the PANDAS kids, kids in vaccine court, girls affected by Gardasil etc. Or even people who know and believe that those people have been harmed by vaccines etc.
It is interesting to see people's stories in the comments section of news articles on flu shots etc. where people describe in detail how a flu shot had affected them badly. Well, those people have family, friends, doctors, coworkers who know about it. Their attempts to spy are like the little boy putting a finger in the dyke. Oh ya, and an ethics breach.

So talking about, and yes, even thinking about protecting children from vaccine injury is now an act that requires surveillance under Newspeak as people who engage in anti-vaccine efforts??


“By 2050 - earlier, probably - all real knowledge of Oldspeak will have disappeared. The whole literature of the past will have been destroyed. Chaucer, Shakespeare, Milton, Byron - they'll exist only in Newspeak versions, not merely changed into something different, but actually changed into something contradictory of what they used to be. Even the literature of the Party will change. Even the slogans will change. How could you have a slogan like ‘freedom is slavery’ when the concept of freedom has been abolished? The whole climate of thought will be different. In fact there will be no thought, as we understand it now. Orthodoxy means not thinking -- not needing to think. Orthodoxy is unconsciousness.” George Orwell, 1984 (1949). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nineteen_Eighty-Four

“And so the people who go and engage in those anti-vaccine efforts -- you know, they, they kill children…” Big Brother Bill Gates (2011) http://www.cnn.com/2011/HEALTH/02/03/gupta.gates.vaccines.world.health/index.html

Seth, add me too. God help your industry should I ever become properly funded

An interesting observation. In the UK, with minimal interest or publicity, the last Labour government planned to pass the management of higher education over from the Department of Education to the Department of Business. Perhaps this was this simply the final expression of a change in emphasis which he had be going on incremetally for decades. The Conservative said they would not support the change but got on with it with cynical alacrity when they got into office. So, yes any pretence at objective study is now in the UK subordinate to financial interest with thr boss of GSK as lead non-exec board member for the Department of Business.

The surveillance has already begun here in Connecticut. Look what I found when I turned on my computer this morning - replacing my screensaver:

I propose a counterspy initiative. Something along these lines:

Fortunately, I'm wearing my decoder ring and my sunglasses with built-in mirrors so I can see what's behind me without even turning around! We're ready for anything here in the nutmeg state - ground zero for anti-vaccine surveillance!

Psssst! Professor Kalichman.....
BOO!!!!!!!!!!!


So essentially Gates is funding 100 K into organized, academic-led trolling, which will ultimately change no one's mind and blow up in the vaccine zealots' collective face as they look utterly ridiculous and immature. This whole thing is very reminiscent of the disgusting David Gorski's "gray ops" where he lays out a subversive trolling campaign encouraging his mindless skeptic drones to pretend to be parents of vaccine damaged kids and say ridiculous things in the hope of scuttling the anti-vaccine "movement." That's sure working like gangbusters for all the "Lawrences" and others out there.

Hey Seth... I just got one thing to say: rot in hell.

This is pretty funny in an awful sort of way. If all it takes is questioning vaccines, then the government of Great Britain needs to be under surveillance. They studied the varicella (chickenpox) vaccine and decided NOT to include it in their vaccine program. Since the CDC endorsed this vaccine, and the CDC is the ultimate authority on all things vaccine...that makes the government of the UK anti-vaccine.

I think this plan needs a little more analysis.

I guess the Knowledge section doesn't apply to people labeled “Anti-vaccine" either.

"Knowledge:

"Members of the University community value truth, the pursuit of truth, intellectual curiosity and academic freedom. Our faculty and students seek to create new knowledge and are committed to sharing ideas, research findings and the products of intellectual and creative pursuits with the broader community."

Thank you for writing about this. Scary times. If someone had told me 30 years ago that vaccines would become a civil rights issue, I would not have believed it.

What's up with the name "Seth"? When babies are given the name "Seth" does that mean they are at a higher than normal risk of growing up to be vaccine program defenders? We need a study on that.

The University of Wisconsin La Crosse has already shown me that our Institutions of Higher Learning are not interested in truth. The current purpose of Academics seems to be to breed greed and create a group of individuals subordinate to a corporate agenda. Most are interested only in furthering the corrupting interests of their largest donors and avoiding bad publicity that might come with discovering or exposing inconvenient truths.

Dr. Kalichman, I would be honored if you could add me to your list of vaccine safety advocates.

It was interesting to read Seth Kalichman's wiki entry as the beginning of research:

"Kalichman spent a year infiltrating HIV denialist groups. He argues that denialism is often a coping strategy, and that followers are often anti-government, anti-establishment, and prone to cognitive distortions; he says that leaders in denialism exhibit paranoid personality disorder."

So presumably we can expect (1) to be infiltrated (2) characterised as mad.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seth_Kalichman

Basically, he seems to an intellectual descendent of Samuel A Cartwright who defined the clinical conditions of Drapetomania (which infects Black American slaves who run away) and Dysaesthesia Aethiopica (which infects Black American slaves who don't want to work).

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samuel_A._Cartwright

Obviously, if you don't want to take the medicine you are anti-government and anti-establishment and this lack of deference to authority is diagnosed as a clinical disorder.

I guess that is what he's about.

Morals?
Ethics?
When did it all start to go wrong?
The very day that Congress made the decision -in the early 80s, that it was okay that some kids would be hurt/die from vaccines. That it was inevitable, and nothing could, or more importantly nothing *would* be done to study it, or stop it – yes –that -was the day. That was the day that the American Revolution was finally lost.
Congress never mentioned anything about research, or even more importantly ---the education of medical staff, and parents of how to spot a vaccine reaction? Which the evidence tells me – would not have been hard to do.

What does a vaccine reaction look like?

They don’t know and more importantly they don’t care to know.

Instead they passed the first lottery law - those that won the lottery were left with no medical treatment. Like Shirley Jackson’s book “The Lottery” written back in 48 – a whole modern community laid down their sweaters to pick up rocks, and stone the lottery winner. Is that not what is happening to parents and kids that were vaccine injured?

Anywhere I blog on the internet about what happened to my kids – I get hateful comments back, or probably something just as bad --silence. I was shocked, that just yesterday – someone instead blogged back “hugs” - that is the exception and surprised me. I am surprised by simple Christian kindness, of only one word.

That is also about the way it is with members of my community too. Only they are not so hateful – they choose their words with more care. Words like the benefits out weigh the risk, or I am told a story of how someone died or was injured from some infectious disease. My kids’ injuries don’t seem to count in these horror stories. But worse of all, I get silence; and a wild look in their eyes as if looking for “escape”. What is even more ironic; is most of them have the mark of the beast upon them, and don’t even know it!!! They are getting that stomach pinched with a rubber band because they are so obese, or looking for those insulin needles in the mail, or trying to figure out what kind of treatment is best for prostate cancer, or thyroid trouble, or a teenager that started out with depression and now is a drug abuser.

So once we win this Shirley Jackson’s lottery – we are thrown in with a large group. If we can get pass the lies of the medical profession in under three years – again a lottery – like in the “Hunger Games” as in there are many lottery winners, but only one or two can emerge the final winner. What we win in the big finale – is a trip to “The Vaccine Compensation Court” which is again just another lottery game, but played with skill!.. Great effort, money and painful psychological games are then played in this biggest Gladiator Games of all. If we did not prepare, did not train hard – find the best lawyer, buy the best medical science/experts , we will find ourselves not standing with a sword in our hand in front of the Emperor (Grand Master) but standing there as just simple lion’s food.

The CDC already called me after a letter I had written to a medical newsletter, not about the letter, but a survey of how many kids of vaccination age I had living under my care.
So, enters the Orwellian keeping an eye on trouble makers, and the internet is the next naturally step in that process. Bringing these anti vaccinators under rein and bringing appropriate response to such behavior-- should not surprise us. And yet – darn it all – it does!.

The last phase of this mess will be from all the brain injuries, illnesses that saps our energy, the lowest SAT scores in 40 years --- there will soon be not enough people left to keep on the lights, and then things begin to resemble Aye Rand’s book the “Fountainhead”..

Ahhh, life is stranger than fiction.

Oh, so I guess we can expect that those currently overstretched and overworked Fast Acting Rapid Response Troll Teams (FARRTTs) will soon be getting much needed reinforcements in weapons and manpower. If needs be they may even be sent on team building away-days and skill development courses ... Great time to be a troll right now, they must be buzzing with excitement and anticipation.

I can't wait to see which one will be named the first ever General Commander of the Troll Army. (it'd be fun to place bets).

Serious business, this war against anti-vaccinationationalists.

It will cost a hell of a lot more than $100,000 to spy on the 89% of parents who list vaccine safety as their number one research priority!

Post far & wide. Give the snoop & the idea stealing nerd a run for their money.

Witness what happened to your child.

Unfortunately it make take time but eventually people will declare that the emperor wears no clothes.

Lou

These people know they can't win in open discourse so all they can do is to try and shut us out and shut us down. Here there is no integrity, no seeking after knowledge (or at least not the right kind). The dirty tricks department of the Gates Foundation is stonewalling, I suppose the only thing they can do in the circumstances.
