Levi Quackenboss Says, "Thanks for #TeamVax, CDC!"

ThanksfornothingWe've excerpted this post from Levi Quackenboss' blog with permission.

CDC have you done lost your mind?  What were the big brains in Atlanta thinking when they decided that the largest public health organization in the nation needed to stoop to meme-speak?

Let’s take a look at the meme that my tax dollars paid for. You’ve got your racially ambiguous doting mother with her tiny baby boy who’s clearly already had one round of vaccines because his bulging forehead circumference is in the 99th percentile.  It’s nice to see vaccine-injured babies represented.

So, you’re saying that vaccinating leads to a “safe” and “healthy” baby, is that right?  Liability-free and unavoidably unsafe vaccines given in greater quantity than any other time in history and directly correlating with the largest pediatric chronic illness crises our country has ever seen are safe and healthy?  This is the best you can do?  I wish you luck, I really do, but just like every other pressure tactic to emerge in recent years, my guess is that you’re doomed to fail.  Someone at Emory University is going to get a $10 million grant to do a study that announces your poorly designed and visually unappealing government memes caused vaccination rates to drop even further.

Let me break it down for you.  You are the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  As far as 95% of America knows, you are infallible.  Why do you need an ad campaign if you’re infallible?  You don’t.  When was the last time you saw a Rolls Royce commercial?  Never.  They don’t advertise.   They don’t have to. They’re infallible.

So why are you advertising?

LivingWhole Blogger Megan Heimer on #TeamVax from CDC

Sneetch unvaxedThanks to Megan Heimer of the Living Whole blog for her take on the #TeamVax campaign from CDC which attempts to divide parents as if we are Sneetches.

I’ve run across a few really good tidbits from the CDC’s social media accounts lately. The first one was on Twitter and it suggested taking a quiz to see which vaccines for infectious diseases you need if you have a chronic disease. The irony is enough to make anyone pass out.

First, vaccines don’t prevent chronic disease. Nobody with Crohn’s Disease wakes up in the morning and says, “Oh, I have Crohn’s, I should probably get an MMR vaccine.” Secondly, vaccines cause chronic disease. It’s written all over the package inserts,  PubMed database, and thousands of peer-reviewed studies. (Don’t bother telling the CDC, they already know.) Third, if you have a chronic disease, you’re more likely to suffer from a vaccine adverse reaction. (Logic would follow that a strong immune system is required to deal with the nasty in the shot and mount a “proper” response.)

I took the quiz twice, first as a pregnant lady and was recommended six vaccines (none proven safe or effective for pregnant women) and the second time as a “could become pregnant lady” and MMR and chicken pox were added to the list. (There was no box to check whether your chronic illness was caused by a prior vaccine.)

Mercury Documentary Trace Amounts Shows at United Nations' NGO Conference

Trace Amounts UN
Eric Gladen and Shiloh Levine’s documentary, Trace Amounts, was featured as part of the United Nations 2015 NGO Conference.

Since Tuesday, hundreds of international Non-Governmental Organizations have been gathering at UN Headquarters in New York City to “Honor the Past, Recognize the Present, and Imagine the Future.” 

Yesterday, a crowd of 150 conference goers watched the film and attended the post-screening Q & A which featured Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., Eric Gladen and Dr. Brian Hooker. Given the international reach of the conference, attendees particularly were interested to learn that, while the U.S. has reduced thimerosal in many vaccines on the childhood schedule, thimerosal-laden vaccines are still being widely distributed in developing countries, exposing millions of children to the risks of mercury.

  Trace Amounts UN Panel

A video of the post screening Q & A will be available in a few weeks and will posted widely. 

 

 

One Lie Two Many: From Vietnam to Vaccines, the CDC is Exposed for a Second Time in the New Book Vaccine Whistleblower

Dr William ThompsonBy James O. Grundvig

It appears that the only thing dirtier than the ingredients found in vaccines is the science behind vaccine safety.

In the new book, Vaccine Whistleblower: Exposing the Autism Research Fraud at the CDC, attorney Kevin Barry has provided context to a series of tapes that were recorded last summer by Brian Hooker, PE, PhD, with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) senior epidemiologist Dr. William Thompson.

Had someone not blown the whistle on the CDC whistleblower last August 2014, Thompson would have divulged a lot more. Needless to say, when he was outed last August, with the most powerful Vaccine Whistleblower Skyhorse Publishingpeople in the media and government away on vacation, by the time Labor Day came around the story had lost its lift.

Being outed prematurely forced Dr. Thompson to hire a law firm that specializes in protecting whistleblowers against retaliation.

Press Release on Dr. William Thompson

After Dr. Thompson introduced himself in the August 27, 2014, presser, he stated:

“I regret that my coauthors and I omitted statistically significant information in our 2004 article published in the journal Pediatrics. The omitted data suggested that African American males who received the MMR vaccine before age 36 months were at increased risk for autism. Decisions were made regarding which findings to report after the data were collected, and I believe that the final study protocol was not followed.”

Today, outed for a second time with the book being published by Skyhorse Publishing (disclosure: my publisher for 3 upcoming books) without Thompson’s permission, the “raw” tapes, which had been transcribed, evolved into a coherent narrative on some of the darker elements of the “science of justification,” allegedly perpetrated by the agency that is tasked with the health, wellbeing and prevention of diseases of Americans.

Sobering Numbers

Since 2000, parents of autistic children have suspected that the United States’ childhood immunology program has run amok with as many as three times the number of vaccines given to U.S. children than any other nation in the world.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. on Forbes Magazine & CDC’s Rogue Scientist

Poul thorsenBelow is Robert F. Kennedy Jr.'s response to Emily Willingham's August 10th article in Forbes titled Hey, Interpol, I Found Your Autism Researcher Fugitive.

By Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

Willingham
Emily Willingham

Emily Willingham's strained defense of CDC’s rogue researcher, the international fugitive, Poul Thorsen, is yet more evidence that Forbes prioritizes Pharma's mercantile interests ahead of the health of American children.   (“Hey, Interpol, I Found Your Autism Researcher Fugitive”, Forbes, August 10, 2015)[1]

Stark facts belie Willingham's dismissive assertion that Thorsen is merely the creature of an anti-vaccine conspiracy mill. Poul Thorsen is subject of a 22-count indictment by the US Department of Justice for wire fraud and money laundering in connection with more than $1 million in research grants that he allegedly pilfered from CDC as he was ginning up fraudulent studies to “prove” that vaccines don’t cause autism.[2] His crimes have won him a slot on HHS's "most wanted" list.[3] (Oddly, US Officials have not requested an extradition order against Thorson despite a treaty providing for extradition between the US and Denmark).  Thorsen has also been disgraced and dismissed by his former employer, Aarhus University.[4] As of 2014, Denmark’s university hospital system has permanently expelled him from practice. The fact that he is roaming free and is easy to find, despite the US Federal indictment, does not imply Thorsen’s innocence, as Willingham suggests. Rather it suggests a lack of enthusiasm by HHS and CDC to press for his capture and extradition. The agency undoubtedly fears that a public trial would expose the pervasive corruption throughout CDC’s vaccine division and the fragility of the science supporting CDC’s claims about thimerosal safety.  

Dr. Thorsen is one of the co-authors and data manager for two leading foreign studies offered by CDC as the foundation of its claims that vaccines do not cause autism. Only purposeful misstatement or journalistic sloth can account for Willingham’s declaration that Thorsen’s conclusions “have not been called into question”. For over a decade, myriad critics have exposed those studies as brazen fraud. Thorsen’s thimerosal study, Madsen et al. 2003,[5]  is one of the principle publications offered by CDC to exculpate thimerosal – the mercury based vaccine preservative from suspicion that it causes autism (The Institute of Medicine largely based its milestone 2004 finding that thimerosal was safe on Madsen et al. 2003, another similarly flawed Scandinavian study, one study from the United Kingdom and two American studies, both of which CDC whistleblower, William Thompson recently exposed as dubious).  Madsen et al. 2003 purports to show that autism rates increased in Denmark after the Danish government removed thimerosal from vaccines in 1992.[6] But critics point out that the alleged increase in autism was the illusory artifact of Denmark’s new reporting protocols. 

Here’s how Madsen, Thorsen and the CDC team crafted their deception:  In 1992, the year after Denmark fully enacted the phase-out of thimerosal, it required, for the first time,that outpatient autism cases be reported on the government’s national health registry. Prior to 1993, only inpatient cases were reported representing approximately 7% of the total. The new requirements increased the reported autism cases by thirteen-fold.[7]   Furthermore, the registry’s inpatient body count prior to 1993 omitted the patients at Copenhagen’s largest autism clinic which housed 20% of the national total.  After 1993, the clinic’s patients were included.[8] Finally, Denmark enlarged the diagnostic criteria for autism in 1994 increasing the potential number of autism cases in the registry by up to 25-fold.[9]  Dr. Thorsen and his cronies took advantage of the artificial rise caused by the new registry rules to fraudulently conclude that real autism incidence had increased following thimerosal’s ban.  This, of course, was craven chicanery - but the fraud got worse.

Despite the “cheats” in the Madsen et al 2003 paper, the Registry data still showed a pesky drop in autism rates between 1999 and 2001 in 7-9 year old children.  This was significant since these children were the first generation born after Denmark’s thimerosal phase out in 1992.  Leaked CDC documents show that the authors responded to this with an audacious breach of established protocols, deleting that entire year class from the final published version of the study.  That maneuver constituted scientific fraud of the highest order; CDC scientists deliberately manipulated the final dataset to prevent public disclosure of the decrease in autism since it did not support the study’s conclusion that there was no association between thimerosal and autism.  Secret CDC emails obtained by SafeMinds via former Congressman Dave Weldon, show that the decision to omit the 2001 year data was made at the suggestion of Poul Thorsen with the direct approval of CDC’s then Developmental Disabilities Branch Director, Coleen Boyle[10] and against the pleas of the Danish study’s primary author, Kreesten Madsen. [11] (Coleen Boyle made her bones at CDC orchestrating the infamous coverup of the links between Agent Orange and Vietnam vet morbidity during the 1980s).  It’s no wonder that CDC is not anxious for a public trial of Poul Thorsen.  Danish journalist, Ulla Danielsen has speculated that Thorsen’s carefree lifestyle in Denmark and the fact that he has never been interrogated by police despite the extradition treaty between the US and Denmark – is evidence that US agencies are protecting him.[12]

OPEN LETTER TO U.S. CONGRESSWOMAN BRENDA L. LAWRENCE OF MICHIGAN’S 14TH DISTRICT FROM DAVID BROWNSTEIN, MD.

BrownsteinAugust 14, 2015

Dear Representative Lawrence,

I have tried to contact your office by email and phone without success.  I am a board-certified physician who practices in your district—West Bloomfield, MI. 

I am concerned about the problems at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta.  One year ago today, a CDC senior scientist whistleblower, Dr.  William Thompson, came forward and admitted that crucial data was altered in an important 2004 CDC scientific paper that found no correlation with the MMR vaccine and autism.  Dr. Thompson stated that his superiors pressured him to alter the data in this paper to hide the association between the MMR vaccine and autism.  

The unaltered data showed a 240% increase risk in autism in African American male boys who were given the vaccine before 36 months of age.  Furthermore, the study found that there was a 69% increase in autism in any male child given the vaccine before 36 months of age.  Incredibly,  the 2004 published paper omitted that data.

Dr. Thompson states that he has the original data and the information that indicates that his superiors wanted the data altered.  In fact, Dr. Thompson claims that his superiors ordered him and his fellow authors to throw the incriminating evidence into a garbage can.

To: Rob Ring, Subject: Vaccine Autism Research

Consultingdemotivator_1024x1024

By Ginger Taylor

So, yesterday I posted an email I had written to Dr. Tom Insel, head of IACC. You can read it Ring AShere.  I asked if someone could please send me Autism Speaks' Rob Ring's email. And someone kindly obliged. Here's the email I sent to Rob Ring.  Both of the emails are a response to the post Katie Wright ran on Thursday regarding the complete and total and seemingly purposeful disregard both Ring and Insel have for meaningful autism research.


Subject: Vaccine Autism Research
Date: Fri, 14 Aug 2015 16:36:37 -0400
From: Ginger Taylor
To: Rob Ring


Mr. Ring,

As you might understand, it is quite frustrating for parents who are reading the research on autism, and who see its links to vaccines over and over again, to hear Autism Speaks claim there are no links between the two. 
I am sure that in the cloistered circle in which you operate, the line that vaccines are not linked to autism works just fine, as everyone's paycheck depends on toting that line.  However, you need to understand, out here in the real world, where we actually live, that claim is absurd.  Because parents can read.  You sound silly.

So I am sending you a list I have complied of research papers that show the links between vaccines and autism, and the mechanisms by which it is happening.  The document of the 101 abstracts is attached, and I keep a current list online here: https://www.scribd.com/doc/220807175/86-Research-Papers-Supporting-the-Vaccine-Autism-Link

Now you can finally get started on THE most promising lines of inquiry on ways to prevent and treat most cases of autism!

But let's be honest, you won't.  If you wanted to, you would have done so a long time ago.

In fact I have it on good authority that you don't even bother responding to emails of this nature, even from struggling parents, because you care so little about making any difference in the actual live of families struggling with these complex and burdensome medical issues.  Because again, talking about the real research does not further your cause.  I mean Pfizer's cause.

So I feel perfectly comfortable in sending you grandstanding emails like this, that call you out on being a phony who does not even remotely begin to fulfill Autism Speak's mission statement, because I have the utmost confidence that you will simply continue to ignore me, the research,  the Thorsen scandal, the Thompson scandal, the Merck MMR Mumps scandal, Verstraeten's first draft, Boyle's emails, DeStefano's admission that no one has ever looked to see if vaccines can cause autism in individual cases, #GarbageCan, #VAXwhistleblower, Unanswered Questions, Bruesewitz v. Wyeth, the willful ignorance of the entire medical establishment of vaccine induced encephalopathy, as well as the reports on VICP by Stanford Law, American University Law, The Associated Press, and the US GAO.

Because when the research list reaches 200, or 300, or 400 citations, you still will ignore it.  Until the day that it is no longer simply our children's health and functioning on the line, but your paycheck and your career.

But do get in touch if you decide to change your mind and stop looking like the CEO of a Tobacco company trying to deny that their products cause cancer 40 years after we knew they did.

Dr. Insel,

For the last several years you seem to have failed to be able to find any research that links vaccines and autism.  I have complied a list of the research that you have missed and I am sending it to you so you can get started on furthering research on these specific lines of inquiry, and on drafting reasonable safety measures to prevent further cases of vaccine induced autism.  The list currently has 101 citations.

I have also posted a copy online, in case that format is more easily accessible to you.
https://www.scribd.com/doc/220807175/86-Research-Papers-Supporting-the-Vaccine-Autism-Link

I am available for any questions you have on these matters. 

Hey... does anyone have Rob Ring's so I can send him the list too?  I want to help him get started on the real work.

Where is the Justice in the Poul Thorsen Case? Four Years and Counting…

Where's Poul 3 A GamondesDOJ loses Thorsen file. Thank you to Beth Clay for this excerpt. Please bookmark her blog and read the full post here.

By Beth Clay

August 3, 2015: The last couple of weeks there was a lot of conversation online, in Washington and by the media about what is more important to many Americans – aborted babies or hunted lions.

The release of video showing Planned Parenthood doctors and staff discussing aborted babies whose body parts are being provided to research organizations (for payment) outraged many and spurred some legislators to call for an ending of taxpayer funding of the non-abortion services provided by the organization. Planned Parenthood quickly responded with a high dollar television media campaign blitz to ‘win the hearts and minds’ of Americans.

Just as this story was peaking, every news station and show for days covered the tragic story of Cecil, a ‘much beloved’ lion in Africa who was killed by an American big game hunter. Both of these stories are pretty horrible. In the priority setting vein of thought, two things have happened during this same time frame in which comparisons are warranted.

•Media Priority: At the same time the media storm blew in on Cecil the Lion, a revelation that has been a year in the making happened on the floor of the United States House of Representatives which should have led every news story on every network across the country, but so far has been completely ignored by all but a few online media outlets. While there were observations made that ‘the mainstream media’, i.e. CBS, NBC, and ABC gave more attention to the story of Cecil than the story of Planned Parenthood. None of the networks or cable news shows gave air time to the Posey floor speech.

Message To Politicians: You Take Away Vaccination Rights We Take Away Your Position

Richard PanIn response to the passage of California SB277, a bill that removes parental vaccination choice except for medical exemptions (which imply previous vaccine injury and are therefore reactive, not proactive in protecting children, unlike a religious or philosophical exemption) a recall effort is underway to remove Senator (Dr.) Richard Pan, pharmatrician/pediatician (not a typo) and sponsor of the bill.   We've had impeachment proceedings against a President for personal behavior that in no way threatened American lives. This recall is a way to send a strong message to politicians - if you take away our rights, we will work to take away your position.  We first told you about the recall on July 4th - Announcing the Recall Campaign of Senator Richard Pan.

SacBee reports Effort to recall Richard Pan over vaccine bill cleared for signatures.

Thwarted in the Legislature, opponents of California’s vaccine mandate law have turned to the ballot box with a recall aimed at Senate Bill 277’s champion.

A campaign to recall Sen. Richard Pan, D-Sacramento, the pediatrician who carried the bill requiring full vaccinations for schoolchildren, has been cleared to advance to the signature-gathering phase. Proponents have until Dec. 31 to collect 35,926 verified signatures from the 436,318 registered voters in his district.

Crafted in response to a measles outbreak that began in Disneyland, SB 277 spurred a furious backlash from parents assailing a loss of child-rearing autonomy and insisting that vaccines are unsafe. As they lined up at hearings to testify against the bill, many vowed to make lawmakers pay at election time.

Exposing Autism Research Fraud at the CDC

Vaccine Whistleblower Skyhorse Publishing

By Kevin Barry, Esq.

Foreword by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., JD, LLM

Preface by Dr. Boyd E. Haley

A first-hand account on the link between vaccines and autism from a CDC insider brave enough to tell the truth.


“Parents making decisions about their children’s health deserve to have the best information available to them. They should be able to count on federal agencies to tell them the truth.” —Representative Bill Posey

On July 29th, 2015, Rep. Bill Posey, R-Florida, addressed the U.S. House of Representatives, describing himself as, “absolutely, resolutely pro-vaccine.” However, Rep. Posey implored the House to launch a thorough investigation into the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for fraud, misrepresentation, and manipulation of data linking vaccines to autism.

He then began to read from the transcripts of Dr. William Thompson.

Age of Autism Makes an Appeal to Scotland’s First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon

NicolaSturgeonOnce again Age of Autism highlights the disgraceful predicament of Andrew MacVicar and his family. Andrew is an autistic adult of 53 who is incarcerated and being forced to undergo medication with risperdal (a treatment for psychosis) against his will. Following his mother Christine’s harrowing account which we published two weeks ago she writes under the column today:

Just to bring this up to date. Andrew has now collapsed two days running and the hospital says it can find nothing wrong with him.

My son is terrified that he will die and angry that this is being done to him. The UN clearly states that this is torture.

This is human abuse on a high scale and we call upon Nicola Sturgeon to intervene to make sure that Andrew ‘s torment ends. Under new National Health Service guidelines Andrew might very well be protected in England.  We suggest it scarcely makes any difference whether Scotland is governed by a faceless, indifferent bureaucracy in London or a faceless, indifferent bureaucracy in Edinburgh.  NICOLA, WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO?

Maybe I've Been Wrong? Vaccine Choice.

WrongwayBy Robert M. Snee

Maybe I’ve been wrong?   Maybe parents shouldn’t have a choice to say no to vaccines that are recommended by medical professionals clearly more knowledgeable than us.  After all, none of them, from the drug manufacturers on down to the pediatricians have any economic interest in making sure that each and every person is given each and every possible injection, right?  The politicians who have supported and voted for the denial of my right as a parent to make all medical decisions after giving informed consent, surely haven’t been bought and paid off by the lobbyist’s dollars filling their campaign coffers, right?  After all, the science is settled, right?

If a parent doesn’t have a choice and is prevented from saying no to vaccines based on religious or philosophical reasons, then they will be off the hook!  A parent will no longer need to feel guilt when their child is injured or dies because they didn’t get informed on the known, but intentionally minimized risks of vaccines, and then wish they could go back in time and make a different decision for the health of their child.  They will no longer have to lay awake nights, unable to sleep, regretting that they blindly and ignorantly followed their doctor’s and the CDC’s recommended vaccine schedule.  They would be able to sleep comfortably, knowing that the lifelong care their child needs is part of their sacrifice to the “greater good” of society. (Except that their high needs child might have issues that demand attention in the middle of the night, interrupting their guilt free, deep sleep) Their child was just a loser in the lottery of adverse effects. No choice, no control, no blame, no guilt.   After all, what is good for everyone is good for the individual, right?  The rights of society are more important than individual rights, aren’t they?

Thank you Mr. Speaker. I arrive today on matters of research and scientific integrity. 

To begin with, I am absolutely, resolutely pro-vaccine. Advancements in immunization have saved countless lives and have greatly benefited public health.  That being said, it’s troubling to me that in a recent senate hearing on childhood vaccination, it was never mentioned that our government has paid out over three billion dollars through a vaccine injury compensation program for children who have been injured by vaccinations. Regardless of the subject matter, parents making decisions about their children’s health deserve to have the best information available to them. They should be able to count on federal agencies to tell them the truth.

Pfood Pharma and The Right to Know and No

No thanksPfood and Pharma have "most favored industry" status in America at this time.  Used to be the oil industry, the war machine and its tech/aviation/ship building companies. Used to be the auto industry. Tobacco. No more. Pfood and pharma are now intricately intertwined in your health and your healthcare. Politicians from coast to coast on both sides of the aisle aren't just chipping away at your right know and your right to say no, they are blasting it with dynamite. 

The "Dark Act" prevents states from allowing labeling of GMO food. And it passed the House of Representatives  this week on the heels of California's draconian vaccine rights limitation bill SB277.  Unfortunately, many of those who want knowledge and prevention of forced consumption of GMO products refuse to consider that the same forces are in effect when it comes to vaccination rights.

We should know what's in our food, how our food is grown, harvested, kept free of pests, fed, caged, slaughtered.  We should know what's in our vaccines. The risks. And we should have the right to know and to say "no."

AofA Book Contest: Victory Over Autism

Victory over autismWe're happy to share a new book from our friends at Skyhorse Publishing called "Victory over Autism" by Mary Romaniec.  Perhaps you heard Mary speak at Autism One last month?  We have a copy of her book for one lucky reader. Leave a comment to enter.  Buy the book here

Good luck!

Children are recovering from autism, as are their families.

Children are recovering from autism, and yet the general public is largely unaware that this is even possible, let alone happening at astounding rates. While traditional medicine continues to be stymied on the causes and potential remedies, other physicians and proactive parents have partnered to become a progressive force for change.

In Victory over Autism, Mary Romaniec takes the reader through the personal stages parents will experience when their child is first diagnosed with autism, and shows how to become part of the next generation of proactive parents who are making a difference in the well-being of their children and families. Romaniec explores the stages of grief associated with the diagnosis, followed by an examination of the winning attributes parents should—and will—possess or adopt as they strive toward the goal of better health and full recovery for their child.

Victory over Autism includes personal accounts of overcoming the autism odds, looking out for all family members, and addressing marriage issues, and explores ways of getting the parent into the mind-set that a victory over autism is a realizable goal.

Christmas in July. What the 21st Century Cures Act is Really About.

Vaccines-and-moneyBy Wayne Rohde

Recently, the U.S. House of Representatives voted 344-77 to approve H.R. 6, better known as the 21st Century Cures Act.  I received a promotional email solicitation from Autism Speaks a few weeks ago to ask me to contact my representative and ask them to vote in favor of this legislation.

That is when my curiosity bugged me to actually investigate the 21st Century Cures Act.  And boy did the red flags pop up after reading the table of contents of the proposed bill.

The bill seeks to increase funding for the National Institutes of Health (NIH), nearly 9 billion, and asks the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to accelerate the rate of medical innovations.  Who can say no to this?  Maybe a few very stout fiscal hawks that voted against any new federal spending.  And there were a few that actually did.  

In a July 10th press release, Autism Speaks stated the following “We applaud the bipartisan efforts of Chairman Fred Upton and ranking member Congressman Diana DeGette for their leadership on H.R. 6, or the 21st Century Cares Act, to accelerate the discovery, development and delivery of the new treatments for all, including many families with autism,” said Liz Feld, president of Autism Speaks.  “Our advocates will continue the work of educating Senators on the importance of this legislation to our community and we are hopeful that H.R. 6 will move quickly through the Senate to bring us closer to new breakthroughs in medicine.”[i]

This bill really sounds very promising for all of us, those families dealing with autism, those individuals having to live with life altering disabilities, and those who live in pain daily dealing with chronic disease, those patients in need of a life-saving medical device.  So I ask you, who would vote against this?  The bill passed out of the House Energy Committee 51-0 and the complete House voted 344-77.

But as the old saying goes, the devil is in the details.  So let’s look behind the curtain, place a spotlight on the language of this fast moving bill and see where the cockroaches scatter.

We know that the pharmaceutical industry and medical device companies are responsible for drafting the language and promoting it to Congress.[ii]

I contacted several congressional offices seeking comment on the vote.  Most declined but a couple of unnamed staffers stated that the large increase in new federal spending without the promise of results led to decision to vote against the bill.  One staff member mentioned that the Congressman was not happy with the track record of NIH and credible research.  We have we heard that before?

One has to wonder about the speed of this bill being introduced in May of this year, receiving a fast committee vote and over whelming support for the full House.  I want to ask you to focus your attention to page 162-168 of this entire 360+ page bill.  Just seven pages.  It is like the infamous 16 words stuck in the middle of a 5,400 word document spoken by President Bush in the 2003 State of the Union speech.  Those 16 words dealt with the yellowcake uranium claim that Iraq was seeking to acquire from a nation in Africa.  And we all know where that claim led us.

Reader Response to WaPo Article on Neurodiversity

App realityManaging Editor's Note:  Yesterday, we ran Anne Dachel's take on the Washington Post article on the joy of autism and the mirage of neurodiversity,  AofA reader Aimee Doyle wrote a pointed letter to the reporter and shared her letter in our comments. We thought it was an important point of view. If you would like to share your thoughts with Ms. Somashekar, you can reach her here.

###

Here's a copy of the email I sent to Ms. Somashekhar this morning. I'll post again if she gets back to me (unlikely). But I just couldn't let the article stand unchallenged.

__________________________ Dear Ms. Somashekhar: I have some comments on yesterday's article "In Autism, A sense of Comfort and Identity, Not Dread." I am the mother of a 25 year old man with profound autism, who will need lifelong care, so I speak with substantial experience of autism. I was disappointed in your article's narrow focus on the neurodiversity movement. Most individuals on the spectrum are not high functioning. Approximately a third of those on the spectrum are non-verbal; another third or so (my son falls into this category) are semi-verbal (some language, but not really able to write or hold a conversation). The remaining third have high functioning autism (some of whom can finish high school and hold a job with supports).

The percentage of individuals on the spectrum who have Asperger's syndrome and who can go to college, get a job, get married, have friends - participate in the neurodiversity movement! - is vanishingly small. Yet this is the population that you describe, and you imply that this "movement" includes all individuals with autism. Why does the media never cover the challenging aspects - both personal and societal - of moderate and severe autism?

I realize you interviewed and quoted Kim Stagliano, which was sort of a nod to balance, but was lost in the overall thrust of the article. However, you didn't discuss the tragedy of wandering - over 50% of individuals with autism wander, which has resulted in death by drowning or other causes.

Levi Quackenboss "Coincidence Disorder Reaching Epidemic Levels"

Doctor-Quiet-734076Excerpted from the Levi Quackenboss blog:

Coincidence Disorder Reaching Epidemic Levels

Parents of disabled children, desperate to blame someone for their bad genetics or inexplicable acts of God, have taken to social media in recent years as a “vocal minority” to blame their woes on life-saving measures whose side effects we all know are exceedingly rare:  vaccines.

As much as our hearts break for these parents raising non-verbal autistic children in diapers at age 10, or whose kids go into anaphylactic shock six times a year from exposure to common everyday foods, or those with imperfect offspring who suffer from epilepsy and spend a quarter of the year hospitalized, we have to chalk these conditions up to the new epidemic of “Coincidence Disorder” because if there’s one thing we know about these mysteries:  they are not caused by vaccines.

There is no limit to the coincidences that these pathetic parents blame on the greatest inventions of the 20th century.  Take, for instance, when a seemingly-healthy baby is vaccinated for Hepatitis B before being discharged from the hospital, and suddenly that baby is incapable of suckling at the breast.  Never mind that mama had been breastfeeding for 48 hours already, this baby now has to be bottle fed because it has forgotten its eating reflex.  Babies are silly and sometimes these things just happen, right?  Did you see this study of little monkeys who weren’t able to suckle after a hep b vax?  Are we monkeys?  No, we are not.  We are plagued with Coincidence Disorder, and it’s tragic.

What about the 896 infant deaths after the Hib vaccine reported to VAERS  between 1990 and 2013?  Sometimes babies just die within 24 to 48 hours of the two or four-month routine immunizations.  Do you know why medical examiners never say that a child who died of SIDS in fact died from vaccines?  Because it’s not a box to check off on the form, that’s why.  Get used to those two and four month spikes in Coincidence Disorder.  Read the full post here.

A Novel Idea: Getting Doctors on the Same Page About Vaccine Injury

Star Commenter(Editor's note: This detailed comment from Cia Parker about an earlier story, like so many of the 119,000 (!) comments we have published over the past seven years, deserves wide attention. Here it is, with some elaboration provided by Cia. Thanks, Cia, and all who take the time to comment and add so much to the richness of AOA's content)

I think a good way forward would be for both physicians and parents to read the same books, and then discuss them at a sort of book club meeting. Some states have already passed into law a requirement that patients attend an educational presentation by a doctor about the value and safety of vaccines. It would seem reasonable to require that physicians attend such meetings to discuss a book on vaccines which everyone had read, and would be more respectful than a lecture which privileges the physician's understanding of vaccines over that of those concerned about the rising tide of the vaccine-injured.

A discussion of one book which everyone had read would also keep it objective, so as not to get into "I've always been told that ... is a deadly disease, and the one in a million severely damaged by the vaccine is worth it," on one side, and "My child was healthy and normal until he got the ..., and then all hell broke loose and now he's ...., it would have been better to let him get ..., and what's more, ten children on my block reacted severely to the same vaccine," on the other. Talk about never the twain shall meet. 

There are dozens of excellent books which could be discussed, most of them exhaustively referenced, with extensive lists of works and studies cited, so that doctors wishing to refute them would have to attempt to do so while respecting the rules of professional debate.

It would be great to discuss Judy Converse's When Your Doctor is Wrong: the Hep B Vaccine and Autism? Get the doctors' opinion on Judy's doctors blowing her off when her son reacted to the hep-B vaccine just the way mine did, with prolonged inconsolable screaming (he had severe bowel symptoms as well, which my daughter did not). Get everyone's opinion on the extremely high number of children irreparably damaged by the vaccine, many times higher than the number of children diagnosed with hep-b in the US.

The Continuing Psychiatric Persecution of Andrew MacVicar

Doctor1By Christine MacVicar

With permission Age of Autism reproduces an edited letter by Christine MacVicar describing the continued persecution of her 53 year-old son by the psychiatric system in Scotland.  This outrageous case comes at time when Scotland's politicians are in further danger of entrenching autism as a mental illness through misconceived legislation. Andrew’s case acquired public notoriety three years ago when Christine and Andrew temporarily removed to Spain.

My son is Sectioned again, as a direct result of being forced to take Risperidal .

You will remember that we absconded to Spain while Andrew was under a Community Treatment order.  While in Spain, still on Risperidal, Andrew got ill again.  It is characterised by really odd behaviour, moving things and very smelly urine.  The doc in Spain had this analysed and Andrew had acidosis. We already knew this perhaps ten years ago after Ken Aitken suggested we test it.  GP then would do nothing and, even when he has the classic Kaussmaul's breathing, he is refused care now.

In January 2014 we had Andrew at the Breakspear Hospital to see Prof Puri.  The minute he saw the gasping, he had him on an ECG. The trace is suggestive of a pulmonary blockage. They were going to do bicarbonate IV, but had none in stock.

The letter to the GP from the Prof, states that Andrew would need this intervention in an emergency and gave a Diagnosis of mitochondrial dysfunction, acidosis, detoxification deficit as described by Dr Lathe and Prof St Clair and underlying infection, possibly bacterial.

This has been completely ignored in contravention of our Patient's charter and even after the instructions, he was again refused emergency treatment for the acidosis.  He does not have diabetes, so this must be metabolic.

Scotland's Mental Health Act

ScottishNote: Fiona Sinclair of the group Autism Rights highlights the anomalous situation of including autism under the general heading of mental illness in the light of a new Mental Health Bill before the Scottish Parliament and lists proposed amendments.

By Fiona Sinclair

The Mental Health Act is currently undergoing revision, through the Mental Health Bill, and we are backing several amendments, that would improve matters for people with ASD - and others - in the mental health system. These include an amendment by Jackie Baillie MSP asking for a Review of the Mental Health Act within a specific timescale, to consider removing people with Learning Disabilities `however manifested` from the provisions of the Act. Jackie's Amendment is supported by the Learning Disability Cross Party Group, to which I gave a talk on this very subject and raised this as an issue back in 2012;

I worked with my constituency MSP, Adam Ingram, to submit Amendments at Stage 2 of the Bill and these have now been taken up and re-worded by Richard Simpson MSP at Stage 3. I have copied and pasted the text of the relevant amendments below.

AMENDMENTS

Vaccinism—The Dangers of Political Ideology

Jesus doctorBy David Taylor

Vaccines in America have evolved well beyond science into religious dogma. Like religious dogma, vaccine dogma is based on fear--fear of the Hell of disease and our desire to be saved from it. The “science” supporting this religious dogma cannot be questioned any more than the Holy Word can be questioned at an evangelical tent revival.

This dogmatism is easy to see in any argument on social media between a vaccine skeptic and a vaccine supporter who harbors no doubts about the safety and efficacy of the 19th Century medical procedure known as vaccines. Arguing with a True Believer is exactly like arguing with a religious fanatic. The fanatic does not want or need facts, science based or otherwise.

What is needed to turn the tide? The tide is turned on a personal level when your child or a child close to you becomes a victim of vaccines.

The tide on a social level will unfortunately require more injury, more death, more stripping of medical freedom and autonomy. As injury and death increase, a tipping point will eventually be reached, the Overton Window will shift, and vaccine policy will become open for debate.

That's what happened in 19th Century England when Jenner's smallpox vaccine, made from scrapings of cow pus, caused so much injury and death that there were riots in the streets of London against forced smallpox vaccinations. A Royal Commission was established in wake of the riots and eventually recommended that the required vaccination law be overturned in 1898 with passage of a “Conscience Clause.”

Until that kind of social shift happens, all the whistle blowers in the world, including Dr. Thompson, will have no lasting or significant effect. There have been several Dr. Thompsons in the past. As recently as 2012, in an interview with Truthout’s Martha Rosenberg, former FDA drug reviewer, Ronald Cavanagh, exposed the FDA as a relentless criminal mafia protecting its client, Big Pharma, with a host of mob strategies. Earlier equivalents of William Thompson were J. Anthony Morris and Bernice Eddy. Ever heard of them either?

The stages of the Overton Window are:

Unthinkable
Radical
Acceptable
Sensible
Popular
Policy

It's pretty clear where we are now on that scale as a society in our ability to debate vaccine science and safety. One of the major factors keeping us in the "Unthinkable" and "Radical" range is that vaccines are also consciously, methodically being made into a monolithic and powerful political ideology.

An ideology becomes political when it has its own:

***1. System of Law.
The basis of this system for vaccines is the matrix of state laws that mandate all or parts of the CDC recommended schedule, the 1986 NVICP Act, and the 2001 SCOTUS decision. The recent efforts in states like California to eliminate exemptions for children and increase mandates for adults are attempts to extend a system of laws to support "vaccinism"--the ideology of vaccines.

Sign of the Crimes: Activist Stands at Merck HQ to Declare Autism Vaccine Link

Lori at Merck 1

Managing Editor's Note:  Lori Brozek has a blog called MerckNQuest.  I read this post and felt we should share it with AofA'ers.  Lori has taken activism to heart - she stands at Merck HQ with a sign. She gets attention. People ask questions. If you're near Whitehouse Station, New Jersey and want to stand next to Lori, or expand the number of days per week an activist is there, you can follow her lead.
--
To the extent that subordinates move toward freer expression and action they will expose the Lori Merck 3 inequality and throw into question the basis for its existence. And they will make the inherent conflict an open conflict. They will have to bear the burden and take the risks that go with being defined as “troublemakers.” Since this role flies in the face of their conditioning, subordinates, especially women, do not come to it with ease.

I’ve been going out to Merck lately—typically around 5pm when the employees are leaving work for the day. I started at their former headquarters’ complex off Route 22 in Whitehouse Station, New Jersey. I parked at the Al Bohem’s Golf Center parking lot that’s next to the employee entrance and exit. There’s a traffic light at the intersection, and I stood on the side where the employees were exiting and held my sign.

William Coats, Clover Park School District Attorney, Says Disabled 11 Year Old Girl Not Affected By Sexual Assault

William coatsBy Kim Stagliano

Not every story on Age of Autism deals directly about autism. Sometimes we just profile the sheer stupidity and callous disregard of people who should know better.  We did this a few months ago with a State Senator who made a joke of vaccine injury.  On camera. His office read our post and apologized. We ran the apology. No need to link any of it here. Water under the bridge.

Today's  subject is one William Coats, attorney at Vandeberg, Johnson & Gandara law firm, and attorney for the Clover Park School District in Washington State. A family was awarded three quarters of a million dollars in a sexual assault case involving their ELEVEN year old daughter with special needs. Mr. Coats failed to see how an assault could possibly harm a girl whose IQ is below 70. As if low IQ, cognitive deficits, mental retardation, call it what you will, means no emotions or feelings or basic humanity.  It does not.

The district admitted it was negligent in its supervision of the boy, but its attorneys argued at trial that the girl deserved damages of no more than $50,000.

“Given her cognitive ability, it is unlikely the girl experienced many of the psychological issues customarily associated with sexual assault, such as feeling guilty or damaged,” the district’s attorney, William Coats, wrote in his trial brief.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr Responds to NYT's Frank Bruni RE Vaccination Safety

Press Release JournalismEarlier this week the New York Times' Frank Bruni attempted to castigate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and his position on vaccination SAFETY.  SAFETY.  SAFETY!  (See below.)

Honestly, can you think of a dumber idea? "Hey, today I'll attack the nation's leading environmental safety advocate who also happens to be a member of America's most famous political family. (Apologies to Bill and Hillary, Jeb and George.)"   To boot, Frank Bruni is completely ignorant of actual vaccine facts probably having been educated by Merck and CDC instead of doing actual journalism based research. But, but but the press release says.......     Age of Autism's Anne Dachel wrote about the Bruni column this week:

"As America celebrated Independence Day, Frank Bruni at The Times gave us an op ed piece that championed censorship and end to both open debate and the public's right to know. 

It seems that Robert Kennedy, Jr.'s efforts to stop bills that would deny a parent's right to choose Kennedy Albanywhen it comes to vaccines and his claim that our current schedule has damaged a generation of children has not won him support at The Times.

In California, Camelot and Vaccines  Bruni went on the attack.  He appeared deeply offended that Kennedy would want to share the vaccine science he'd uncovered.  Using words like "alarmists," "scaremongering," "irresponsible" and "anti-vaccine agitators," Bruni tried to convince his readers that Kennedy was not to be taken seriously.  In fact, he is so sure that Kennedy couldn't possibly have anything credible to say that he is "not about to hop on the phone with him again."

It's frightening to learn that someone from a leading U.S. newspaper is so close-minded that he eagerly tells his readers there's no need to be fair and balanced when covering this heated debate, and that he intends to avoid meeting a leading advocate for one side.   Kennedy can't be trusted to tell the truth and Bruni compared him with Jenny McCarthy and Jim Carrey, whom he described as "the epitome of the sloppy talk, selfishness and disingenuousness too common in our debate and society.""

Here is Kennedy's response to Frank Bruni. It's logical, factual and accurate. We can't say the same for 99% of media attention to vaccination issues. Remember, vaccination is  religion meets Disney World's FantasyLand meets Fort Knox in America, not a science.

On Mercury and Vaccines, By Robert Kennedy Jr in the New York Times

Re “California, Camelot and Vaccines” (column, July 5): Frank Bruni says mercury has been removed from most American vaccines. But there are large doses in some tetanus and meningitis vaccines, and in about a third of the more than 150 million doses of flu vaccine available this past flu season. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends annual flu shots, including for pregnant mothers and infants over 6 months.

The Same CDC with Serious Anthrax and Ebola Lab Mishaps Also Handles Vaccine Safety and Mandates

Old campManaging Editor's Note: You love your Uncle Joe. He's your Dad's oldest brother, never had kids himself but always brought you an Oh Henry candy bar and a bag of red shoelace licorice when he came to Sunday dinner. Uncle Joe ran a camp in Northern New Hampshire for 45 seasons.   Several years ago, a child drowned. Five years ago a child was electrocuted in the swimming pool, the aging electrical system of the pool light turned the blue depths into a giant bug zapper. The bug's name was Janie.  Two years ago, seventeen children were hospitalized with salmonella poisoning from spoiled sloppy Joe meat. Last year, a boy suffocated to death when his vintage bunk bed, complete with authentic "Kilroy was here" carving, collapsed, crushing him under the weight of Percival Perrington, whose father, grandfather and great-grandfather had attended the same camp.

This year Uncle Joe has been selected as the President of the United States Camp Accreditation Governing Board, under the Health and Human Services Department of the US government.

Wanna hear s'more?

So USA Today ran the following true horror story of American health in jeopardy - After Serious Lab Mishaps, CDC Says it Needs 3 Year to Relese Records.

THREE YEARS.

1095 DAYS.

July Two Thousand and EIGHTEEN.

They have played fast and loose with EBOLA. EBOLA!!! ANTHRAX!!  And now they need three years to find and share their records?  Insanity. And an unvarnished view of the sheer dysfunction of their ability to protect a single American.  But man, they sure can sell vaccines!

These are the same people who according to Dr. William Thompson, known as the #CDCWhistleblower, gave more massages (to data that reported the Autism/MMR link)  than the Wei Please Yu "spa" in Hoboken, New Jersey on a Saturday night.  No happy endings here folks.   These are the same A$$clowns (there's a first, never used that word, and yet it was the only word that worked, apologies to the faint of heart) who control vaccine mandates, safety, studies and more!

A Perspective About Vaccine Choice from The Sandlerings Blog

Hello my name isThanks to an AofA reader for sharing this blog post by Willow Sanderling of The Sanderlings blog with us.  There are powerful stories on personal blogs. It takes courage to write about your life.  Here's an excerpt.

###

If you’re reading this, you’re probably curious on my thoughts on the vaccine law in California. Many people have asked me what  I think, and so I have been forced to think more and more about it. I’m going to be honest, I hate thinking about it. I try not to. If I think too much about the “What if’s,” I might lose my mind. What if I hadn’t vaccinated him, what if I would have gone with the way I was raised and questioned things in the medical field….. what if? What if he would have grown to be a normal boy? What if he didn’t struggle the way he does? What if it was MY FAULT he is the way he is because I BELIEVED that it was safe for EVERYONE?

Many of you grapple with this question of vaccines with the “What if’s,” too.  What if you do vaccinate and your child is injured, what if you don’t and your child get’s sick?  What if someone else unvaccinated kid gets your child sick? I get that. I know that feeling.  But realize I’m coming from a different place than most of you. My child is sick. His life is forever altered.  He will never live alone. He will never poop in the toilet.  He will never have a girlfriend, a real job, a wife, a child, a love of his life.  He will always be severely disabled.  And Jason and I will be taking care of him like this until we are dead and then likely his siblings will take on this role. I’m going to warn you right now. This post is sad.  It’s not happy and positive and wonderful.  If you’re looking for that, read this Blog Post “A Letter to My Special Needs Son“.

Announcing the Recall of California Senator and Pediatrician, Richard Pan

Stage_hook-thumb_8706Note: We may have coined a new word, feel free to use it, "Pharmatrician," one who puts pharma sales and products over pediatric health. AoA

By Aaron Mills

American citizens are growing weary of the political system, both on a national and local level. We have watched silently as our freedoms have been eroded, and our jobs shipped overseas. As the country was preoccupied with the usual media distractions, the Senate quietly passed the TPP trade agreement, a secret trade agreement that will pave the way for even more global corporate control over our free country. Here in California, citizens have been fighting an equally frustrating battle, as Senator Richard Pan's vaccine bill (SB277) was signed into law by Governor Jerry Brown less than 24 hours after hitting his desk, against an outpouring of opposition. SB277 abolishes the religious and personal belief exemption for children entering school, and joins West Virginia and Mississippi as the only two states with such strict requirements. Children will be denied their California constitutional right to an education for merely opting out of one or more vaccines. By January 1, 2016, simply opting out of the Hepatitis B vaccine will ban the child from school admission and expel a child already enrolled at the beginning of the school year, while children who actually have Hep  B are protected from discrimination for their illness. Similar vaccine bills have been shot down throughout the country this year because their legislators listened, yet California's highly controversial bill was fast tracked just like the TPP, with no regard for public opposition or any interest in revealing to the public all of the facts. Not unlike the TPP, SB277 has tragic future implications for this country. For as California goes, so goes the rest of the country, and mandated medical procedures seem to be a new benchmark.

Have Babies. Then Vax Injury. Then Autism. A Life Rearranged Out of Necessity and Love.

Fierce loveNote: I'd like to thank Shelena for sharing this honest, raw post about her life. It's not easy to write about yourself, your family with such emotion. It takes guts. Please join me in welcoming her to Age of Autism. Share your story in our comments. This is a safe place to talk about the unvarnished and yes, often tarnished, lives we lead. Lives rearranged by autism. We do it out of duty and love.

By Shelena Jensen

Have babies. A simple, but strong, carnal female instinct that I had for as far back as I can remember. I never dreamed of a career. As other girls fantasized about being a teacher, doctor or veterinarian, I could never get excited about anything regarding adulthood, other than getting married, having babies, and being the best mother I could be.

My childhood pretty much sucked. You could say I fit the typical statistic of a child of divorce, abuse, poverty, and everything else that comes with that bullshit. My entire reason for not putting a bullet in my head as a teenager was meeting the love of my life and the strong will to have children and give them the kind of life I should have had. The kind of life, every child should have. I wanted to be the perfect mother. A stay at home mom who dedicates her life to her children.

I was going to be the mom who would wake up every day, ready to enrich my little baby's life with knowledge, creativity, optimism, and love. My child's home would always be clean, welcoming, safe, and nurturing. And most importantly, a home where the truth and  love of Jesus would be shared.

I would be the mom that volunteers regularly in the classroom, goes on every field trip, never forgets a picture day, always sends her child to school, clean, well fed, happy, and ready to learn. The mom who would teach her child to be kind, intelligent and always remember to treat others as they would want to be treated.

I'd say I did a pretty good job at living up to this dream when my first son was born. A perfect 7 pound, 10 ounce baby boy with a head full of black hair, and a cry that could clear a room. Although I did develop a pretty bad case of postpartum depression, I was able to overcome it through prayer and guidance from God. Also, I’m sure the Zoloft didn’t hurt.

The Battle for California, Part 5 - California Democrats Pass Fugitive Slave (I Mean, Anti-Vaxxer) Act and Guarantee Their Own Destruction!

Goodbye CABy Kent Heckenlively, Esq.

Nothing leads evil to its own destruction quicker than its own apparent success.  It's how God leads the wicked to their demise.

Consider the slave-owning South prior to the American Civil War.  A trickle of slaves, perhaps 1,000-5,000 were escaping each year (out of an estimated population of 3,000,000 slaves), beginning their lives in the North, and speaking freely of what they endured under the lash of their slave-masters.

The escaped slaves presented no existential threat to slavery.  For those in the North who didn't quite know what to think about slavery, they were allowed to continue to exist in their state of uncertainty.  Maybe slavery was good, maybe it was bad, but it was something that happened someplace else.  They were not a part of it.

But that wasn't enough for the South.  The escaped slaves drove them crazy.  Just like the 1.5% of California schoolchildren who have a philosophical or religious exemption drive the pro-pharma forces crazy.  You see, most doctors claim that even if you believe in the mythical concept of "herd immunity", it's somewhere around 90-93%.  I'm not a math teacher, but even if you take 1.5% away from 100%, I calculate it at 98.5%.  Check my math to see if I've got it right.

This Monday, the California Senate voted 24-14 in favor of SB 277, which would strip California parents of religious and philosophical exemptions to vaccines in order for their children to attend public school, something so draconian that even China and Russia have no similar laws.  The measure is going to Governor Jerry Brown's desk for his signature.  (As a footnote, Jerry Brown's father, Governor Pat Brown, signed the current parental exemptions into law in 1961.  It's a great shame that yesterday's soulful, civil rights democrats have morphed into today's soul-less corporate democrats.  Somebody needs to lead them back to their historic support of the rights of the individual.)

The Irony of SB277 Mandated Vaccination During July 4th Week

SB277 2

Californians from San Fran to San Diego are working to fight SB277, a bill that removes not only vaccine exemptions but literally removes healthy American children from the classroom.   In special education we have a ruling known as FAPE - that is your right to a "Free and Appropriate Public Education," under the law of the land.    FAPE gets left behind with 277.  There are no clear answers as to what happens to kids on an IEP following SB277.  The bill currently reads:

The bill would specify that its provisions do not prohibit a pupil who qualifies for an individualized education program, pursuant to specified laws, from accessing any special education and related services required by his or her individualized education program.

What does "access" mean? Would a speech therapist be dispatched to the home of every child on an IEP in California? Would school bus in the child for their 30 minute session then drive him home?  What about the social inclusion goals on our kids' IEPs? Written out? Or would they be able to stand outside the classroom and peek in the windows? 

Kids with communicable disease can attend school as long as they are vaccinated. Kids who are completely healthy but not fully compliant with the vaccine schedule will be forced out of school.  The vaccines included are:

(1) Diphtheria.

(2) Haemophilus influenzae type b.

(3) Measles.

(4) Mumps.

(5) Pertussis (whooping cough).

(6) Poliomyelitis.

(7) Rubella.

(8) Tetanus.

(9) Hepatitis B.

(10) Varicella (chickenpox).

The irony that this is happening during the week of the July 4th holiday is not lost on us.

We've been taught by pharma lobbyists and public health officials that all disease is a source of fear and loathing. We've been taught that vaccination, despite it's limited efficacy and ability to injure, maim and even kill without concern from the press or medical community, is the end all and be all to.... what? To health? To safety? To a disease free state? To profit? 

Another instance of medical tyranny that resembles SB277 in California is the Chinese "One Baby" rule put in place with "benign" intentions decades ago.   Social medical engineering never beats mother nature.  The result has been mass abortion of healthy female fetuses, the murder of female babies and a skewing of the natural order of male to female birth ratio.

Yes, there are Americans who care. Laura Hayes spoke out at a rally last week.  Listen carefully. California is the beginning. Your state is next.  



Here is the transcript of Laura's speech.

Laura Hayes’s Rally Speech Opposing SB277,  6-25-15

Ten weeks ago, I gave a speech on these very steps asking the question: How did we get here, to a time when our legislators are knowingly violating Constitutions, eliminating parental rights, throwing religious freedom out the window into the garbage can, and mandating forced medicine on the children of CA as extortion to attend school? The answer 10 weeks ago is the same today:  Lies, lies, and more lies.

Pushing the Medical Envelope: Part Three "Too Late for Another Kefauver?"

 The corporations don’t have to lobby

government anymore; they are the government.

If we, as individuals, want to keep control of our democracy – rather than have a government paid for by corporate interest cheques – then we have to fight back now and make sure our system reflects the belief that people, not corporations, control our democracy.

Read the three parts combined here.  Or read on Age of Autism.

The writing about vaccines and autism, both in the US and the UK tends to concentrate on the exacting circumstances of vaccine damage and such things as clinical trials. This is somehow inevitable, principally because both those who suffer and their parents have now such a full and stressful life, that they have little time for larger campaigns.

 Politically, however, the broader issues of corporatism and the power of the pharmaceutical corporations are being obscured. And needless to say this, diminishment works in favour of the drug cartels.

During all my work on Dr Wakefield’s case and with the parents of vaccine damaged children in the UK, the pharmaceutical companies were the least mentioned behemoths. In fact, the cartels have successfully hidden behind this stilted discourse about whether or not mercury, or measles strain virus, is responsible for vaccine damage and regressive autism. As if only we could get the formula right everything would be OK! Eyes are forced continuously away from the real focus of the conflict, heads turned, away from the power of the global drug cartels and their decisions to treat every child in the world as if they were mirror images of each other.

The contemporary societies in the developed world are guided by two things, firstly the development of science and technology and secondly the ease of product introduction and continuous presence in the consumer market. Let’s take fruit and vegetables, while bearing in mind mobile phones. From the 1950s onwards new chemical pesticides began to be used by agricultural growers. The consequence of the first pesticide use was a massive increase in cancers amongst farmers, particularly in the New World and Oceania. Commensurate with this development came that of the supermarket.

The consequences of the supermarket were a fall in the knowledge of shoppers about nutrition, the advent of plastic bags in the millions  - which were to become an environmental outrage, and the disappearance of aspects of the community, little conversation during shopping, the demise of the corner shop and a seeming lack of need for people to grow their own food, followed later by attempts to stop people growing their own food (1). As well a growing use of energy in the form of air miles and a growing exploitation of workers in foreign lands.

When food production turned from businesses to corporations, small groups of people got very rich and more deeply able to control both the production of food and its distribution. Along with this growth of financial elites and large corporations, came a growing lack of control for consumers. Parts of the budgets of agricultural corporations were used to propagandise against organic food and domestically grown food.

Tell the House Oversight & Government Reform Committee That We Want #CDCWhistleblower Hearings

Hearings.fwNote: Complete contact info including Twitter @'s are at the end of this post.

It is time for us to write to Jason Chaffetz, the new Chair of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, to respectfully request that he move forward with holding hearings on Dr. William Thompson's admission that he participated in the cover up of links between vaccines and autism at the Centers for Disease Control.

We have learned from Dr. Thompson that a causal link between autism in black boys and the MMR vaccine, when given before age of three, was suppressed by CDC “higher-ups.” Through the use of a collection of unethical statistical tricks, these senior officials at CDC chose to publish “reassuring” findings when the honest result of their analysis showed clear links between early vaccination with MMR and autism risk, both in African American boys and children with “isolated” (meaning normal in all other respects) autism. Members of Congress have spent many months reviewing the documents that Dr. Thompson turned over, debating which committee had proper jurisdiction in the matter, and have settled on OGR. Now we begin the process of holding OGR to the task of investigating this 15-year-long national scandal in depth.

Age of Autism Contest: Victory Over Autism by Mary Romaniec

Victory over autismWe're happy to share a new book from our friends at Skyhorse Publishing called "Victory over Autism" by Mary Romaniec.  Perhaps you heard Mary speak at Autism One last month?  We have a copy of her book for one lucky reader. Leave a comment to enter.  Buy the book here

Good luck!

Children are recovering from autism, as are their families.

Children are recovering from autism, and yet the general public is largely unaware that this is even possible, let alone happening at astounding rates. While traditional medicine continues to be stymied on the causes and potential remedies, other physicians and proactive parents have partnered to become a progressive force for change.

In Victory over Autism, Mary Romaniec takes the reader through the personal stages parents will experience when their child is first diagnosed with autism, and shows how to become part of the next generation of proactive parents who are making a difference in the well-being of their children and families. Romaniec explores the stages of grief associated with the diagnosis, followed by an examination of the winning attributes parents should—and will—possess or adopt as they strive toward the goal of better health and full recovery for their child.

Victory over Autism includes personal accounts of overcoming the autism odds, looking out for all family members, and addressing marriage issues, and explores ways of getting the parent into the mind-set that a victory over autism is a realizable goal.

The Battle for California, Part 4 - The Nation of Islam and the Church of Scientology Join the Fight Against SB 277

Interesting TimesBy Kent Heckenlively, Esq.

Simpson University biology professor, Dr. Brian Hooker, never imagined he'd find himself on a stage with Robert Kennedy, Jr., a minister for the Nation of Islam, and all of it taking place in a sanctuary of the Church of Scientology Community Center in Los Angeles, CA.  Such are the curious alliances that the fight against SB 277, the proposed law which would remove children from public schools based on their vaccination status, has created.

But perhaps he shouldn't have been so surprised.   Things had been moving at a rapid pace in the past few weeks as the fight against SB 277 had gone into battle mode.

Dr. Hooker, Barry Segal, Eric Gladen,  Shiloh Levine, and Robert Kennedy, Jr. had met with Minister Louis Farrakhan in Chicago during the Autism One Conference in late May and talked about the revelations of CDC whistle-blower, William Thompson that senior government scientists had concealed an increased incidence of autism in African-American males from earlier administration of the MMR shot.  Farrakhan was deeply disturbed by the information.

Maybe it shouldn't have surprised Dr. Hooker to find himself at a United Methodist Church in Los Angeles on Wednesday, June 17, 2015 listening to Minister Louis Farrakhan preach to an inter-faith audience of approximately 1,400 people.  Near the end of his speech, Farrakhan called on the group to oppose SB 277 and urged them to call their Congressional representatives and demand that Dr. William Thompson be subpoeaned to appear before the American people and tell the truth about what had been done.  Minister Farrakhan pledged to support this effort.  On October 10, 2015 there will be a large march in Washington D. C. to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Million Man March.  Two weeks later, on October 24, 2015, the Nation of Islam will lead a protest at the CDC demanding that Dr. Thompson appear before Congress.

Later that night, Minister Farrakhan hosted a gathering for about 100 leading black entertainment figures at a private home in Tarzana and repeated his call for them to oppose SB 277 and demand that Dr. William Thompson be subpoeaned to appear before Congress.  Dr. Hooker was impressed by Minister Farrakhan's command of the science.  As a scientist, Dr. Hooker finds most people mess up the science when they try to talk about it, but it was clear to Hooker that Farrakhan had listened closely. 

Dr. Hooker had initially been wary of becoming close to such a controversial figure as Minister Farrakhan, but in all his interactions he has found the man to be warm, welcoming, and inclusive.  Few other public figures have shown such curiosity and commitment to getting to the bottom of the autism epidemic.  I think God delights in using such unexpected vessels of grace to further His work.  Many in the community may feel we need to wait for other, more prominent, less controversial figures, but I for one have been waiting more than twelve years for such a person or group to step forward.  If others feel differently and want to continue to wait, that is certainly their right.

Pushing the Medical Envelope: Part Two

Sir Graham Sleby WilsonBy Martin J. Walker

Read part ONE here.

Part Two:  Mandatory Vaccines, the rise of science as ideology: 
A Brave New World in the offing

Data is not information; information

 is not knowledge; knowledge

 is not wisdom. Frank Zappa

 

Last week the California Senate Appropriations Committee, voted  on the Bill SB 277,  beginning what many Senators believe will end the right to personal and religious exemption and introducing ‘almost’ mandatory vaccination. Rather than develop the more complex science of understanding which children might be variously and adversely affected by vaccine, as Wilson recommended, the vote and other political signs, moved the vaccine industry and their shills deeper into the political matrix of US society.

This early vote by has paved the way for a larger vote in the California senate which will make final the mandatory law regarding vaccination of children before kindergarten – failure to comply will lead to children being denied access to state schools in California (2). Such a law would make California one of three states along with Mississippi and West Virginia that does not allow personal or religious exemptions to vaccine laws.

In some ways the issue of mandatory vaccinations is intellectually complex. Should the individuals beliefs take precedent over the alleged public health risk to the majority? In a world where the public have no say in the manufacture or regulation of vaccines, why should they have these vaccines forced upon them? In a world where scientists and vaccine producers lie without discretion about adverse reactions caused to individual children, why do parents have no power to seek reparation and compensation for the damage caused by these vaccines? Why in an apparent democracy should parents who strongly object to this medical intervention, be forced at the cost of all kinds of social withdrawal, to see their children vaccinated?

Part One: Sir Graham Wilson and The Hazards of Immunisation

Everything faded into mist.

The past was erased, 
the erasure was forgotten.

 The lie became the truth.
George Orwell, 1984

 

Sir Graham S. Wilson, 1895-1987, Director of the UK Public Health Laboratory Service, for over 20 years until 1963, was a real scientist, whose writing is underscored with the kind of uncertainty that genuine scientists always have.

 In his 1967 book, The Hazards of Immunization, (1) in 24 chapters, he outlined the problems which can occur with vaccination. So varied and so determinedly stated were his concerns that towards the end of the book he tells the reader that while in the US he was castigated for being anti vaccination. He denies this, but it is clearly evident that he thought attention to detail and the examining all aspects of vaccine adverse reaction was vital.

Science, scientists and vaccine corporations, have, however, changed radically over the last 50 years and Wilson’s present day equivalents are unrelenting dogmatists for whom money, licences and patents come before serious intellectually driven research. These modern mercenaries, pundits, vaccine promoters and shills have been arguing for some time for hundreds of viral strains to be included in one vaccine.

Oddly arguments are phrased not in scientific terms, but the subject is talked over with bizarre expressions such as ‘we can combine as many viral strains as we want’, and with simple arguments about convenience and lower costs, such as ‘why go to the doctors on different occasions when you can get a hundred shots in one vaccination’ – save money and time. The marketing approach to vaccines is no different to that of washing powders.

When is ‘Shaken Baby’ Syndrome Possibly Vaccine Injury Instead?

What ifBy Mary Romaniec

Perhaps it is just the cynic in me that I can rarely look at a media news story without a measure of skepticism.  And perhaps it is also that my job as a reporter has me looking at the story from a different angle. . .the one not reported. 

So when a seeming rash of ‘shaken baby’ syndrome stories began to appear with regularity in news segments and in print, I began to take notice because the “culprit” was immediately deemed some sort of derelict or troubled dirt bag with mental health issues that probably led to the assault on the infant. 

However my radar was up on the possible other side of these stories because of our family’s experience with vaccine injury.    You see, a vaccine injured infant can in fact mimic the symptoms of shaken baby syndrome.  

In a 2001 article published in the Medical Sentiel, Dr. Harold Buttram, M.D., presented a compilation of 25 cases of individuals accused or convicted of SBS, drawing attention to the similarities of SBS symptoms and those of a child affect by vaccines.  It was Dr. Buttram’s contention that there are people in jail now, wrongly accused of something they did not do. 

Dr. Buttram wrote that what we are seeing a growth in is not SBS, but something entirely different: 

A New Syndrome? Based on observation and a limited but suggestive body of medical literature, it appears that we may be witnessing in many SBS cases the adverse effects from interactions of highly potent vaccines given in combination. These potentially include: Hepatitis B (hemorrhagic vasculopathies, autoimmune reactions, neuropathies), Hemophilus influenza (hypersensitization), tetanus (hyper-sensitization), and pertussis (hypersensitization, brain edema, and the effects of endotoxin in causing vascular inflammation and hyper-coagulability).

On Vaccines, Why are Doctors and Legislators Allowing Themselves to Be Used?


HannahBy Ginger Taylor

So here is the basic problem. (Settle in, kids. And send this to your pediatrician and doctor friends if you are ready to call a spade a spade.)

The vaccine program is a disaster, kids are getting hurt, docs don't have to know anything about vaccines and we are left by ourselves to clean up the damage. Readers here know this well. Here is how it breaks down.

You got your one percent vaccine corruption, then you got your ninety nine percent ignorance and most of that is now willful ignorance.

(Seriously, the Polings went on CNN SEVEN YEARS AGO.  To not know about the vaccine encephalopathy=autism discussion as a practicing pediatrician is willful ignorance.)

There are a hand full of corrupt bastards at the top of the vaccine industry (in both the public and private sectors, and the boundarylessness of the “public/private partnership") who have behaved very badly. They have lied about vaccine safety, they have covered up vaccine autism links, they have published phony research, and they have failed to tell the public about true vaccine risks. They are responsible for grievous harm to an entire generation of American Children.

But the thing is, they are actually a very small number of people. We talk about how vastly corrupt the vaccine program is, and it is vastly corrupt, but only the vaccine program “One Percenters” are actually generating the fraud. The rest of them are just propping it up by towing the “you must have 70 doses of 14 vaccines or the world will end,” line.

They are doing it because they are paid to do it, or because they take orders so they can keep working, or because they have been sold a line of bullshit that they are saving the world from “anti-vaxxers” who want to bring back disease, or because they simply don't want to get attacked for going against the flow. But the thing is, no matter why they are doing it, what they are actually doing is shielding Gerberding and DeStefano and Boyle and Yeargin-Allsopp and Insel and Thorsen and Insert RICO Eligible Name Here, from being put under oath and being cross examined under threat of perjury.

I want to scream, “WHY?! WHY ARE YOU ALLOWING YOURSELVES TO BE USED TO KEEP CRIMINALS OUT OF JAIL! WHY ARE YOU ALLOWING YOURSELVES TO BE LIED TO AND USED TO HARM YOUR OWN PATIENTS TO PROTECT THESE MONSTERS!”

The Vaccine One Percenters can't answer our questions... won't answer our questions... won't answer for their behavior... so they keep throwing people in between us and them to delay the inevitable. This most commonly now takes the form of, “Vaccines are safe. If you have questions, ask your pediatrician.” But of course when we ask our pediatricians the real questions, their answers are some version of:

1. I have no idea what you are talking about.

2. Well my choice is to vaccinate, so yours should be too.
