This is Wakefield at his best and well worth watching. He gives a brilliant rundown on the present state of the vaccine controversy in America and he describes the ominous future we face if things do not change. This is both a medical crisis and a human rights issue.
The forces we are up against are enormous and incredibly well-financed. The power and control of the pharmaceutical industry matters more to elected officials than the welfare of their constituents. These forces also control the media. Most Americans have no idea that this horrific fraud is happening right before their eyes.
Wakefield covers recent events, namely William Thompson, the CDC whistleblower, and how a measles outbreak linked to Disneyland led to the end of vaccine choice in California. Using the story of the MMR study cover-up and the revelation of a whistleblower scientist at Merck, he tells his audience how to fight vaccine mandate legislation and win.
I summarized and quoted what Andy said during his talk. I'm sure you'll agree that he is a courageous and outstanding voice in a sea of silence, and his efforts will not be in vain.
Watch Dr. Andrew Wakefield discuss the widely controversial topic of vaccine health in his "CDC Whistleblower" presentation at the Leadership & Longevity 2015 Conference, Green Bay, WI, Dec 2, 2015.

Introduction: "Just imagine that you were doing what you loved and what happens is all the world starts to criticize you. Could any of you guys handle that? This has been this guy's life for the last decade. . . . "
Andrew Wakefield: "...When a government subverts the rights of the individuals that it is sworn to serve, ...when those are superseded by special interests, by serving corporations, particularly the pharmaceutical industry, over and above the well-being of the citizens who put them in place, then that republic has come to an end."
Speaking on the explosion in the autism rate and what it means for the future of our county, Wakefield said, "This trend is continuing and there is no sign whatsoever that it will abate."
He cited Dr. Stephanie Seneff at MIT who predicts that the autism rate will be one in every two children by 2032. "The risk for autism for a child born today is one in 25 at least. This is not a genetic disorder. This is an environmental disorder. I would go one step further: this is a manmade disorder.
"No economy, no country, no system can sustain this level of damage. If you want to look at the greatest threat to this country today, this is it. ...
"When you reach this position, what you have is no standing army, no police force, nothing. You either have autism, or you look after someone who has autism. Society ceases to exist as we know it. That is the future and unless something happens dramatically, this is what we face."
Wakefield then went on to talk about autism worldwide and how it relates to the dramatic increase in the number of vaccines children receive and the protection given to the vaccine makers. He talked about legislation to end exemptions in California. "This is the United States of America. What has happened? And you may think that you're safe and you may have resisted bills that were trying to be passed across the country at the state level, but now entering Congress just recently is the federal mandatory vaccination bill and using Obama Care dollars or the threat of withholding those dollars unless your state passes a mandatory immunization bill. This is what is going to happen. Your children will be forced to be vaccinated, if they want an education. This is not the end of it. Soon it will be anyone who congregates in any environment, who comes to this church, will be forced by law to be vaccinated according to the schedule. Children who've not been vaccinated on schedule, will be given all those vaccines at the same time to catch them up.
"There has never, in the history of this planet, been any safety study of that kind of strategy. ..."
Wakefield related the story of a child who was given eight vaccines at once and who died shortly afterwards. This death following vaccination was called coincidence and the parents would be forced to vaccinate subsequent children. He went on to describe what happened to his original paper in 1998. He noted that vaccine production was a "backwater" for the drug makers until they received liability protection. "Vaccines became the future for the pharmaceutical industry."
Next the discussion turned to the motives of Brian Deer in his attacks on Wakefield.
Wakefield presented heartbreaking examples of children with bowel disease following vaccination and related the bowel damage to the brain.
"There is a link between the bowel and the brain that we have yet to understand. And if this work had been allowed to continue, ...we'd be long way further forward in preventing suffering in these children. And that has not happened. It's not happened fundamentally because the pharmaceutical industry is determined with ruthless pragmatism to protect its bottom line. It does not care whether vaccines cause autism or not. ..."
Wakefield cited the example of thalidomide which caused terrible birth defects in children whose mothers took the drug for morning sickness. "It took 50 years for the drug company to acknowledge that their drug caused this problem."
He went on to describe the tactics used by the vaccine makers who knew one version of the MMR vaccine caused meningitis. Rather then immediately withdraw the vaccine, they simply renamed it and sold it in several countries resulting in a huge increase in meningitis in those places. "This is the morality of the people with whom we are dealing."
William Thompson, senior scientist in the vaccine division at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, was the next topic. Wakefield explained that Dr. Thompson admitted to Dr. Brian Hooker, father of an autistic son, that the agency had known about the link between the MMR vaccine and autism for over a decade and simply covered it up. Wakefield called this "the beginning of the unearthing of the biggest medical fraud in history."
The CDC study that Thompson referred to involved children in Atlanta, GA. CDC researchers discovered that two groups of children were especially susceptible to MMR damage: "African American boys and children irrespective of race, who were developmentally normal to twelve months of age. That's a lot of children."
Wakefield described how Dr. Frank DeStefano of the National Immunization Program, along with Drs. Coleen Boyle and Marshalyn Yeargin-Allsopp reacted to the news of a link between the MMR vaccine and autism. "They decided that they were not going to publish those data, and they reworked them and reworked them and reworked them. Dr. Thompson said that when the CDC finds an effect that they don't like, they go into a room, and they locked the scientists in that room until they can make that effect go away. That is how they handle vaccine adverse reactions. . . .
"Their deepest concern was this: children at greatest risk ...they found that the children at greatest risk were those who got the vaccine according to the CDC's schedule, 12 to 18 months. They had defined a period that put children at greatest risk."
Wakefield noted that the CDC could have used these findings to change the schedule, delay the MMR vaccine, and greatly reduce the risk of autism for children. "They didn't do that. They knowingly, and willfully, and recklessly put millions and millions of American children in harm's way to protect themselves, to protect vaccine policy, and perhaps to protect their friends in the industry." Wakefield called this behavior "utter, utter hypocrisy." He said that the CDC delayed publishing the paper and worked to change the findings. Thompson said that when he informed the head of the CDC, Dr. Julie Gerberding, that he was going to have to present the study findings at the Institute of Medicine meeting in 2004, he was threatened with the termination of his job. "He was removed from the roster at the IOM, and Dr. DeStefano was put up there instead, and he flat-out lied to the Institute of Medicine."
Wakefield added that presenting this fraudulent data led to the 5,000 claims of vaccine-induced autism being thrown out of vaccine court. "They were denied justice. So the CDC's crime had gone from a change in the protocol, concealment or omission of data, to obstruction of justice. Now they had committed a criminal offense."
Wakefield recounted that U.S. Congressman Bill Posey made a statement about Dr. Thompson on the floor of the House. The CDC's responded that they would conduct an internal investigation of the charge that the agency had destroyed data. Wakefield quoted an email from Thompson:
"The CDC is not capable of conducting vaccine safety research. The CDC is not capable of policing itself."
According to Wakefield, things are only going to get worse. "If we thought that as adults we were exempt, then you will also probably know that California just passed its first adult mandatory vaccination bill. This is going to be cradle to grave. We are all going to become ATM machines for the pharmaceutical industry, because this is their law, a law that they are in effect writing and pushing through."
With regard to SB277, the California bill that ended personal vaccine exemptions for schoolchildren, Wakefield said, "The battle in California was fought over freedom. It was a complete mistake to fight this on the issue of personal freedom. The paradox is of course that within the Constitution, it should be your right to decide exactly what happens to your body. But the politicians had been persuaded that the interests of the greater good, the bigger group, the community, superseded those of the individual rights. ...Fighting it on the basis of individual freedom was destined to fail. Do not do that here.
"The very plank of this bill was that the vaccines are safe and efficacious. In other words, they don't cause harm and they protect.
"We've just dealt with federal fraud on the issue of safety for just one vaccine. Let's take the issue of efficacy. Merck are currently in federal court being sued under the Whistleblower Act for faking the efficacy of their MMR vaccine. What happened is there were outbreaks of mumps around the world, around the country using MMRII, Merck's vaccine. In highly vaccinated populations, children who'd received--adults who'd received two, three four doses of that vaccine were developing mumps. It was not working. On the product insert it says 96 percent efficacious. ... It was much, much lower than that. Merck had actually no idea, no idea whatsoever what it was.
"So the FDA said to them, unless you can prove your vaccine is as efficacious as you say on the product insert, we will pull your license. Now if you pull the license for mumps, you pull the license for MMR, and they have a monopoly in this country and that is a lot of money. It clearly also threatens the other vaccines that are in production. You need to keep in mind that there are nearly 300 vaccines in production. ..."
In response to the order from the FDA, Merck decided to alter the data on the vaccine. They faked the efficacy of their MMR vaccine in the laboratory by adding rabbit's blood to increase the response. One Merck scientist refused to alter the findings calling it fraud. He reported to the FDA about the fraud at Merck.
The FDA then called Merck and told them they were coming to do a surprise inspection on the lab the following week, giving them time to destroy the evidence. (The whistleblower at Merck had however secured the fraudulent data already.)
"So there's just one vaccine, MMR. What we have is a federal admission of fraud in relation to this vaccine safety, and a corporate admission of fraud in relation to its efficacy. And that is the basis on which these cases must be fought on mandatory vaccination at the state and federal level. They are neither safe nor are they efficacious. And once you prove that, which is easily done, then the whole plank comes out from under the mandatory vaccination bill. So please don't be lured into this notion that it can be done on the basis of personal choice."
Wakefield announced, "I am now a filmmaker. I realized many years ago if you want to beat the media, you become the media. And I've heard many, many extraordinary stories over the years, and I felt that these needed to be delivered to the public in a way that both entertained them and educated them. The first documentary we made was about young Alex Spourdalakis from Chicago who--that boy who was given 25 psychotropic drugs whose mother eventually killed him and then tried to take her own life. She is now in Cook County [Jail]. The tragic story of the failure of medicine at every level, every single level to protect these children.
(InfoWars Feb 16, 2015, Who Killed Alex Spourdalakis?" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2MblZctrjOM)
"The story we're making now is about William Thompson, and we're very very close to going into post production. This is the greatest medical fraud in the history of the world, and we have some extraordinary characters that you will meet."
Wakefield said the documentary would be out in April 2016, right in time to affect the election.
Next (auditory) clips from the film were aired. (1:00:00)
Wakefield posed the question: "Where does this go from here? At the moment there is this inexorable march of mandatory vaccination across this country, and it's been allowed to happened for a variety of reasons, not the least of which is an extraordinary public relations effort on behalf of the public health and the pharmaceutical industry--one that we simply aren't able to match. ..."
Wakefield called on all Americans to decide where they stand on this issue. "If you want a world where 80 percent of boys have autism, then do nothing. ..."
"There will be over 100,000 children diagnosed with autism in this year alone in this country and the average cost estimated to raise one of those children, to look after them for their natural life, is $3.2 million [from a conservative figure by Harvard researcher Michael Ganz a decade ago.] By 2025, autism will cost this country a trillion dollars a year. This is going to bankrupt the country. ...Most of the country is still asleep. They don't know and they don't care. Autism is everyone's problem."
Wakefield talked about how autism is changing education. Money that used to go to honors classes now goes to special education. "If you look closely, it is boys who are failing, disproportionate numbers compared to girls. ...This is a biological effect."
More audio clips from the documentary were included that show the incredible lack of safety involved with vaccine development and use.
Wakefield cautioned his audience against feeling sorry for him because of what he's gone through since his 1998 paper. "I am not a victim. These children are victims. It's been an enormous privilege to work with these families and these children. I have no regrets whatsoever. ..." He urged viewers to get educated on this subject.
During the Q and A Wakefield was asked about the schedule, and he talked about delaying and spacing out vaccines. He also made the personal admission that if he had young children today, "I would not vaccinate them. And that's the only honest answer I can give you. That is not advice to anyone else, it's simply from my own experience and the more I look into this, the more concerned I become. ..."
Age of Autism has covered the issues Dr. Wakefield discussed numerous times. Here are just a few of them.
