Robert Kennedy, Jr.: “…Tony Muhammad came because he saw autism exploding in his community. It is the black neighborhoods that are getting the thimerosal vaccines. It appears to be that African Americans are much more susceptible to vaccine injury than other Americans. It’s the poor clinics in the urban neighbors who are getting these shots. If you’re living in a suburban neighborhood, people who are questioning your doctors and saying I don’t want that. But if you’re living in a poor clinic, they’re going to take the cheapest vaccines, which have thimerosal vaccines, and your ability to stand up to your doctor, the power to stand up to him doesn’t exist. So you take them, and those kids end up being grievously injured.
“And Bob De Niro who came here because of censorship, again like Del, because he tried to play a movie that he saw and there was an uproar. And ultimately, he made the decision that it’s too much, it’s going to disrupt the festival, shut it down.
“This censorship is not good for America. It’s not good for democracy. It’s not good for the public health. …”
Nico LaHood: “…For my family, I tell people, we became an unintended experiment. As Bobby told you, I’m the proud daddy of four children… And our first two children were vaccinated per the schedule. …Our first child, at the six months old, after the sixth month vaccination, she broke out in hives, tremendous hives. It’s an autoimmune disease. What’s that? ‘She’s allergic to your wife’s breast milk.’ How ridiculous does that sound? …
“We didn’t know to question, so we went forward with the schedule.
“Our second child, Michael, was born. Vaccinated. From the first day, all children are vaccinated, all the way through the schedule. We saw some signs, but around the sixteenth month vaccines, which is the MMR…We lost our son. That’s a fact. …He went to stimming, he went to losing eye contact, he quit responding to his name, and he went blank. …
“…We traced it back objectively, not subjectively, …to the vaccines. …”
Robert De Niro: “I’m glad I’m here. I’m here because my son is within the autistic spectrum. …I thought what Bobby said was great, it was eloquently said, I couldn’t have said it any better myself. I agree with him a hundred percent. …”
Rev Tony Muhammad: “…I have been blessed, as of May of last year, after finding out about the study of a scientist who works for the CDC as we speak. His name is Dr. William Thompson, who admitted that he lied about a study he did. And it was brought to our attention by Mr. Kennedy, of whom I’m deeply, deeply grateful for him. And not just him, his family and their legacy because we’re taught history is most attractive and best rewarding in any research. This has happened to us before. That the Tuskegee Experiment could be back and live and well. It took a Kennedy to shut down that experiment.
“Now we have to ask ourselves as a community, could it be that it’s happening to us again? That two hundred and forty percent of black boys are more disproportionately affected by vaccines when it comes to autism?
“Our community, the poor community don’t even know what that word means. I have just finished the first half of a tour that I have been commissioned to go on by the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan. I have visited thirty urban cities, and the rooms are packed with poor people. And when the movie or the documentary ‘Vaxxed’ was shown, the screams, the cries from black mothers who are poor.
“In St. Louis, MO, a black mother fainted after looking at the movie ‘Vaxxed,’ and it took us minutes to revive her. She said, ‘I knew it was the vaccines, but the doctors bullied me and told me that it was me genetically who gave that to my child.’ She said, ‘I’m crying because I’ve had a hysterectomy because I refused to have any more children.’
“Something is wrong. And I just want to say to the press as a spiritual man… Isaiah in the Bible, Chapter 59, he says these words, … ‘Truth has fallen to the streets and justice stands a far-off, and equity cannot enter. It is impossible for us to judge while the truth is being hidden.’
“It is your responsibility, as Mr. Kennedy said, you are the last line of defense for truth, but if you have been compromised, then in the minds of the American people, we are hemorrhaging because you have to muster up the courage to go behind these lines and vet out the truth for our children and our children’s sake.
“And I’m saying to you that the black community is waking up in leaps and bounds. And as you the press now [are] under attack, show us, show us that we can trust you. Prove to us that you will leave no stone unturned, because the CDC has admitted that in the 1960s, Elijah Muhammad told the members of the Nation, do not take the polio vaccine—we are for vaccines, but we are very careful with which vaccines we take. And thirty years later the CDC admitted that the polio vaccine had in it SV40 [which caused cancer]. …We’re twelve percent of the population and now we lead all categories in cancer. …
“So we hope that you the press will do your job while the American public somewhat trusts you. For when this comes out, in truth, the community is going to be upset.
“…In the thirty cities that I’ve been in, when our community found out that our Congress voted to give the vaccine makers a pass on the very bill that Mr. Kennedy spoke of, they [were] irate. …The American public [doesn’t] even realize that Congress passed a bill that the vaccine makers cannot be sued. If the vaccines are so safe, why has our government, using the taxpayers’ money, [been] covering up for a pharmaceutical industry that makes billions in profits? …Why won’t they stand behind their own vaccines? Why do we the American people have to pay for the mistakes of the vaccine makers. That’s a crime in my opinion and we must do something about it. …”
Del Bigtree: “‘We may have to seek them out and destroy them where they live.’ That was what came out in a court case against Merck when their product Vioxx was proved to cause heart attacks in over 50,000 people. That lawsuit, that case, went behind the scenes, into the emails and showed that Merck knew that that drug caused heart attacks and covered it up from the FDA, the American people and the world. In an internal email they sent out doctors that questioned the safety of Vioxx, ‘We may have to seek them out and destroy them where they live.’
“Think about that. How does a company continue to even work in the United States of America? Murdering over 50,000 innocent people—some say that number could go up into the hundreds of thousands. To put it in perspective, we lost roughly 65,000 people in Vietnam, and we marched in the streets. And we have a company that knowingly killed people, and still they work in this country. Better yet, they make most of our childhood vaccines.
“We are the press. I worked on the daytime talk show, The Doctors, celebrating the best that medicine had to offer, the best doctors, the best science, the best surgeries, cutting edge techniques. And then I ran into the story of Dr. William Thompson, a whistleblower from the Centers for Disease Control that laid out how they committed scientific fraud when it came to vaccine safety research.[He] didn’t just make that claim but backs it up with 10,000 documents including internal emails.
“[He] spoke to Congressman Bill Posey, handed over those 10,000 documents, was also interviewed by Bill Posey. And Bill Posey stand before the U.S. government, in front of the Congress [and]said we have a problem. We have one of our top scientists providing information to me that we are lying to the American public and that children are in harm’s way. The American people trust us. And he said in closing, ‘Please, please, I beg you, we must subpoena Dr. William Thompson.” And yet, no newspaper covers that story. No news station covers that story. Nobody cares about a top scientist for the most important health agency in the world coming forward saying we’ve committed scientific fraud.
“What has happened to us? Why am I the only one that leaves a job because I refused to have television tell me we can’t cover stories about innocent children being ruined and damaged? Stories you’ve heard here today. …
“Yet we let the pharmaceutical industry buy our advertising and control what we say. At the heart, at the foundation of media, of press, the same heart and foundation of science is one single idea: We must never stop asking questions. If we do, science is dead. If science believes it has the only truth, there will never be another Einstein. There will never be another breakthrough event. And if journalists stop asking the important questions, then there will never be the dream of the United States of America. …Thomas Jefferson said to us, if we lose a free press, a press that can challenge the government, can challenge the tyranny of industry, hold their feet to the fire, then we will lose our freedom. We will lose the United States of America.
“They call us the Fourth Estate, the fourth branch of government. And we report concern about the branches of government being bought out by industry. Senators and congressmen that bow down to oil and gas industries, or pharmaceutical industries as Bobby Kennedy as pointed out, now the most powerful lobby in Washington.
“But what about us? What about the fourth branch of government? If we have been bought out, if we cannot go back to our networks and say, ‘We must run this story,’—I don’t care that Merck is going to follow this story with an ad for a drug and a ridiculous list of tickertape side effects, and we giggle in our living rooms, ‘Who would buy that?’
“We must stop giggling because we are lying to the public. They believe we have a free press. They believe we are telling the truth. They believe we will cover a story when a top scientist says we have lied to the American people.
“Journalists are the first ones to step up when a murderer is on death row and new evidence or a new witness steps forward. We say we must reopen this case. We cannot let an innocent man die, or an innocent woman die.
“I tell you right now, we have a new witness in Dr. William Thompson, we have new evidence in 10,000 documents that he’s provided, and you have great scientists and lawyers pointing out that it is impossible to say that vaccines are safe. It is impossible because we’ve paid out over three billion dollars in damages, paid for with taxpayer money, because the pharmaceutical industry has no liability. If we’ve paid out $3.3 billion, how can we say that vaccines are safe? How can we say that vaccines are safe when we have a top scientist still working at the CDC? How can we say that they’re safe when you cannot provide a study that shows that the second most toxic substance on earth, the most toxic nonradioactive substance, has no study saying it can be injected into children and pregnant women, into fetuses?
“And we have a rise in childhood illness like we’ve never seen: autism now at one in 45, up from one in 10,000, asthma in every classroom, anaphylactic food allergies, diabetes, eczema—the list goes on and on. That is not the classroom I grew up in. We have got to stop saying our children are so safe because of vaccines—our children are sick. We said it on The Doctors television show. This is the first generation of children that we believe will not live to be as old as their parents.
“Isn’t that enough questions for the media?
“Isn’t that enough questions for science to do what is right?
“Not a single person up here today is trying to do away with the vaccine program. None of us have ever made anti-vaccine statements. We’ve made statements that we want science to do better. It has injured children of people sitting on this stage. … It has injured hundreds of thousands of parents’ children, telling the same story. Those are the facts.
“Now is the time to begin asking the appropriate questions. …We are saying fix the failing vaccines because no child should be allowed to be injured by anything…”
Next Kennedy pointed once again to the stack of documented studies showing the harmful side effects of vaccines which our government refuses to look at. He added, “I told you there’s no safety studies [showing mercury in vaccines is safe], but there are studies CDC has created—CDC and the industry—there are 19 studies that purport to say that thimerosal does not cause autism. That’s it. And they’re population studies, they’re not clinical, they’re not animal studies. They’re simply population studies, and they’re all very badly flawed. These are those studies. These are the studies …and three of these studies were written by Dr. Thompson—the three lead studies—who now says that he was ordered by his boss at CDC to destroy evidence, to manipulate the data, to bury the evidence that showed that it was in fact causing illness to black boys, specifically black boys who received the vaccine on time at a 250 percent greater chance of getting autism than black boys who waited.
“He and four other scientists were ordered by Frank DeStefano, the vaccine branch chief, to come into a conference room at CDC and dump that data into a garbage can.
“And then they published that DeStefano study and found no effect. And that study has been cited 110 times on PubMed as the definitive evidence that vaccines don’t cause autism. These are all of those studies. This is the entire universe of their autism studies.
“…Even these studies, which are CDC’s own studies, admit that it causes tics, ...language delay, it causes mental retardation, it causes lower IQ in girls, so even the studies they use to defend it from autism, are admitting that it’s causing all these other illnesses. Nobody’s looking at this stuff. Reporters need to look at this and they need to look at it in detail.
“Why did not a single mainstream reporter cover this story? You have a senior scientist at CDC who’s saying everything’s fraudulent. We caused the autism epidemic. That’s what he says. He says every time I see a family with an autistic kid, ‘I have great shame because we were at fault.’—That’s a quote.
“And nobody covered this story. There are just crickets in the American media.”
