Wow. Remember when Jimmy Kimmel went full Penn & Teller on those of us with vaccine injured kids? So here's a REAL DOCTOR, Jimmy! We pray your toddler Jane avoids the tragic fate so many of our kids have endured - and continue to pay the price now decades later.... I heard you on The Howard Stern Show last week. You're a funny guy. Smart as a whip. Why not use that intellect to dig a bit deeper than the CDC pharmedia press release version of vaccine choice? Kim
Annette Wood has written a biography of Temple Grandin called Temple Grandin Voice for the Voiceless available from Skyhorse Publishing. I particularly like the title, since two of my three daughters have very limited or almost no speech. Women and girls with autism are often overlooked. If you buy and read the book, please leave a review at Amazon and elsewhere. Reviews really help authors. And remember, 1 star reviews are often trolls while 5 stars are family! Be honest, be fair and you can also help other readers make their buying choices. Purchase Temple Grandin Voice for the Voiceless here. KIM
From the Skyhorse website:
Since Temple Grandin's life story was told in the 15 x Emmy-nominated film Temple Grandin, and since her heartwarming speech at the award ceremony, she has become one of the world's most well-known members of its community.
In this fascinating biography, Annette Wood delves deep into Grandin's life from childhood to adulthood. Wood tells of the trials and tribulations of the icon: What difficulties Grandin struggled with and how she's become a hero for the autistic community. She also tells what Temple has done since the movie came out, where she is today, what kind of difference she's made, and what her future holds.
For the 22 million people worldwide afflicted by autism and the countless friends and family members who support them, this brilliant portrait presents an up-close look at the disorder and renewed hope for what the future could bring for those on all levels of the spectrum.

The Big Dirty Secret Every Doctor Knows
Lately I've been writing about eminence-based medicine (here, here, and here). In response to these posts, Saurabh Jha, MBBS, a well-known radiologist and health-policy critic, asked me on Twitter: "How do you find these utter gems?!"
I was surprised by Jha's question, because the evidence for this phenomenon -- eminence-based medicine trumping evidence-based medicine -- seems overwhelming.
But then I realized Jha's question was legitimate, because there's actually remarkably little hard proof, though I suspect it really is a big dirty secret that every doctor knows in his or her heart.
For this reason, I think Bernhard Meier, the interventional cardiologist I've been writing about, deserves praise for, at the very least, being so honest and forthright. In his article in European Heart Journal and in his response to my questions he was perfectly willing to explain and defend his position. One of the refreshing aspects of Meier's positions is that he readily admits that his actions fly in the face of evidence-based medicine. In his EHJ article, he specifically stated that randomized controlled trials are an artifact of the past. His beliefs and practices, he explained, were developed from his long experience at the pinnacle of interventional cardiology.
New Vaccination Law Takes Effect
San Diego Union Tribune - Opponents try to block California vaccination law as school starts
Families sending their children back to schools across California face a new requirement mired in a volatile interplay of religious liberties, individual choice and government efforts to protect the public’s health: They can no longer sidestep vaccination requirements by citing their personal beliefs against immunization.
California joins Mississippi and West Virginia as the only states in the nation that ban students from enrolling in public and private schools unless a doctor certifies that a child has a medical condition making vaccination too risky.
If parents lack documents proving their children have been inoculated against 10 designated diseases, from chickenpox to tetanus, those students will be barred from school. Some of those kids might be offered a 30-day grace period if they are in the process of getting caught up with their shots...

A federal judge held off on making an immediate decision about whether to suspend California’s controversial school vaccination law after a hearing Friday afternoon in downtown San Diego.
U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw listened to a request from 17 families and two foundations seeking a preliminary injunction against Senate Bill 277, which the Legislature passed last year and whose main provision took effect on July 1.
The law identifies medical reasons as the only justification for doctors to grant children an exemption from the mandate that students in both public and private schools, as well as day-care facilities, be immunized. Religious and "personal belief" considerations are no longer valid under state law.
The law stemmed from a measles outbreak linked to a visitor or visitors at Disneyland in Anaheim. It requires all kindergartners and seventh-graders to prove they have received the government’s recommended set of vaccinations....

SAN DIEGO, CA—The Hon. Dana M. Sabraw, federal district judge in San Diego, will entertain oral arguments on Education 4 All’s (E4A) Motion for Preliminary Injunction to halt SB277, at1:30 p.m. on August 12th. E4A’s challenge to California’s repeal of all religious and conscientious exemptions to mandated vaccination is the only item on Judge Sabraw’s docket on Fridayafternoon, and the court will hear from the plaintiffs, the state departments of Health and Education, and from attorneys representing the Santa Barbara County public health office.
With many California school districts returning to campus for the fall term, this Friday’s time sensitive hearing is critical for those children whose vaccination status will cause them to suffer exclusion from public and private schools under the new law.
Twenty-one individual and non-profit organization plaintiffs filed suit against various defendants including the California Departments of Health and Education, alleging that SB 277 is unconstitutional. The lawsuit relies on the fundamental right to education under the California Constitution, the rights of parents and children under the United States Constitution, and cites numerous violations of state and federal law, including statutes that protect disabled children.
Thousands of California students should learn after the hearing whether they may return to school in the next few weeks, or be permanently barred from receiving public or private education.
WHAT: Preliminary Injunction Hearing
WHEN: Friday, August 12th at 1:30 p.m.

"In September 1961, an overweight woman from Queens, New York, called a group of friends over to her house and confessed that eating cookies was her obsession. Her name was Jean Nidetch, and with that first admission she discovered that one of the most effective keys to weight control are "empathy, rapport and mutual understanding." Her discovery resulted in a seventy pound weight loss and one of the most successful weight-control organizations in the world - Weight Watchers."

This article in the Washington Post is making the rounds of social media with all manner of comments. Many of our readers have vaccine injured children. Many of us will never touch a vaccine again. While maintaining respect for this child, what are your thoughts? We each have a unique risk/reward formula don't we? And would the Post consider a similar article from a Mom who will never vaccinate again? Maybe I'll ask... KIM
Last year, I became a mom. During my pregnancy, I read all the books and all the articles, and my husband and I mentally crafted a framework to use to raise our baby. I would breast-feed. We would use cloth diapers. We would eschew television and electronic devices for her first two years. And we would vaccinate on time, following the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s recommended immunization schedule.
Of course, I know now that nothing ever goes to plan when it comes to parenting. We tried cloth diapering; that lasted a week. My daughter was never able to breast-feed successfully, so I ended up pumping exclusively and feeding her from bottles. We let her watch TV when she’s feverish and cranky.
But we kept our promise about vaccinations. My husband and I know that vaccines are an easy and essential part of preventive health care that will help keep our baby from contracting serious and even potentially deadly childhood diseases. And even though a severe medical reaction would test our resolve, we continue to ensure our daughter never misses a vaccine...

There is an on-going effort to rewrite the legal history of vaccine-induced brain damage featuring “autism.”
The cases in the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP) that show a progression from vaccine injury to encephalopathy (brain damage) to autism are a particularly annoying issue for those who have decided to abandon logic and support the oft-repeated mantra “vaccines don’t cause autism.”
The facts show that cases of vaccine-induced brain damage that leave a child with “autism” are quite common within the hundreds of cases compensated by the United States Government in the NVICP. Holland, Conte (co-author of this article), Krakow and Colin revealed this five years ago with the publication of Unanswered Questions from the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program: A Review of Compensated Cases of Vaccine-Induced Brain Damage in the peer-reviewed Pace Environmental Law Review. Click here.
The conclusion of the paper was: “This preliminary analysis of VICP-compensated cases suggests that autism is often associated with vaccine-induced brain damage. It raises the question, if the VICP’s decisions have been fair to reject all vaccine claims of vaccine injury that use the term ‘autism.’…there may be no meaningful distinction between the cases of encephalopathy and residual seizure disorder that the VICP compensated over the last twenty years and the cases of ‘autism’ that the VICP has denied. If true, this would be a profound injustice to those denied recovery and all who have invested trust in this system that Congress created.”
Over 5,700 petitions alleging “autism” were dismissed in the NVICP in the Omnibus Autism Proceedings (OAP) after a series of decisions on six “test cases.”
Thank you all for coming tonight! Please be warned that I am not going to mince words tonight as I welcome you. Perhaps if more people had not minced words in years past, my children would not have been injured by vaccines, one to the point of severe and permanent disability. I thank you all for coming tonight because it is going to have to be people like us…informed, principled, ethical, concerned American citizens…who are going to have to expose the horrendous truth about the always life-altering, often life-decimating, and sometimes life-ending vaccinations that are harming and prematurely killing our children every single day, not to mention, people of all ages. It is WE who are going to have to work non-stop to put an end to this ever-increasing medical tyranny, this abominable Vaccine Holocaust, this present evil.
For those who think “holocaust” is too strong a word, I assure you it is not. “Holocaust” is defined as “destruction or slaughter on a mass scale”, and that is indeed what vaccinations are doing to those who receive them, which can often be observed in the short term, always in the long term, and for generations to come as you will learn as you study these issues more. There is an ominous agenda underway, named Healthy People 2020, with the goal being to vaccinate all people, from fetus to grave, worldwide, with scores of vaccines and a recommended list that is ever-increasing…and that goal is in serious danger of being achieved. We must not let that happen!
I am going to assume that in our audience tonight we have people who are at all stages of understanding the lies and corruption that underlie our nation’s vaccine program, from manufacture to mandate, and beyond…lies and corruption that have gone on for many decades. Some of you here have dedicated your lives to this cause, like I have, after watching your child suffer catastrophic brain injury, permanent nervous, immune, and GI system damage, and be transformed into someone who will be dependent on others for the entirety of their lifetime, never reaching what would have been their full potential, never living independently…perhaps never even using the toilet throughout their entire lifetime, but forever being in diapers…often living with great pain and suffering…vulnerable to all types of abuse throughout their lifespan…ALL because their parents were lied to…parents who then allowed their children to be injected with “routine” vaccinations…vaccinations they were told were perfectly safe, near 100% effective, essential for good health and longevity.
Suzanne Wright, Mother of AofA Contributing Editor Katie Wright, passed away this weekend following a fight with pancreatic cancer. Please join us in sending thoughts and prayers to Katie, her father Bob Wright, and all of Suzanne's family and friends around the world. This is a time for somber respect and to comfort our friend and fellow autism Mom Katie.
Thank you for your messages and your concern.
I begin with the assumption that you are well intended and, with the exception of trolls paid by the pharmaceutical industry, sincerely believe in your statements that vaccines are safe and effective.
I also know that you are not well informed. Your rigid “everyone should be vaccinated” policy tells me that you have not ventured beyond the promotional advertisements of the pharmaceutical industry or the superficial journalism of today’s mainstream media.
Your position tells me that you haven’t read the research literature or considered the possibility that the medical industry is a for-profit business and has successfully lobbied (bought) politicians and captured the media with their advertising dollars. You assume the pharmaceutical industry is producing products in our best interest and that they wouldn’t be able to produce unsafe products.
You might admit that prescription drugs should be treated with caution. You might even be aware that the medical industry kills around 250,000 people in the US every year and is the third leading cause of death either by preventable medical error, hospital acquired infections, or properly prescribed drug reactions.
But you consider vaccines a different kind of drug. Vaccines are like a ‘magic potion’ with none of the risks or adverse effects commonly associated with other pharmaceutical products. You believe this propaganda, not because you have read clinical evidence of safety and effectiveness, but because you want to believe that vaccines are safe and effective and will protect your child from “vaccine preventable illnesses”.
You also believe that vaccines are responsible for the decline in polio and small pox and the decrease in mortality of measles, though there is no scientific evidence to support these claims. The vaccine industry denies a relationship between injury and death following a vaccination and claim that, “a temporal relationship does not mean a causal relationship”. Yet the vaccine industry is more than willing to claim a causal relationship between vaccines and the decline in infectious diseases by pointing to the temporal relationship between the introduction of vaccines and the decline of many diseases. The fact these diseases declined as much as 99%, before the introduction of the vaccine is not considered relevant.

....you can’t figure out what damage has been done.
I had been in labor about 14 hours, the last 2 in the hospital. I was almost completely dilated, but my Ob-Gyn wanted to hurry me along. Without much warning she broke my water – catapulting me into the pushing phase. The impulse was so strong, my daughter was born in that very first push, resulting in some serious trauma to my body. As the doctor and nurses ran around frantically trying to control the bleeding, they were yelling at each other that maybe they needed to knock me out. In the midst of this, I held my daughter. Despite the chaos and my (somewhat) muffled cries of pain, she lifted her head from my chest and quietly looked into my eyes.
As they were jamming in IV’s, clamping delicate places and generally jostling me all around I began to worry that my daughter would bond with a screaming, scary version of myself – I was also beginning to feel weak and was afraid I would drop her. I asked my husband to take her and while the nurses wanted to whisk the two of them off to the nursery for all the prodding they had in store for her, my husband refused to leave me or let her out of his sight.
Once the bleeding was under control and repair work underway, my husband agreed to go with our daughter to the nursery. My recollection of the next few hours is hazy – having made it thru childbirth without pain medication I was now woozy on some cocktail needed to keep me from jumping off the bed while they sewed me up. The next thing I remember clearly, I was holding my daughter – my very unhappy, screaming daughter. No longer gazing at me silently, her eyes were squeezed shut, tears streaked her face, and the veins pulsed visibly on her forehead. Her tiny hands were clenched so hard her knuckles were white. She cried like that for a great deal of her entire first year of life. We were told that night and for months to come that this was simply “colic”.
What I didn’t know then, that I do know now, is that in 1991 hospitals across the country began giving all babies a Hepatitis B shot on their first day of life – usually within the first 12 hours. The CDC made that recommendation, despite the fact that Hep B is a blood borne, sexually transmitted disease most commonly found among IV drug users. They made that recommendation, despite the fact that mothers could be tested prior to delivery to determine whether they were Hep B positive – the only route by which their babies could become infected. They made that recommendation despite the fact that the vaccination’s safety for infants has been minimally tested. Despite the fact that the long term effects of the vaccine has never been studied. Despite the fact, that by their own calculations the vaccine’s effectiveness wanes after 7 years long before your baby will be sexually active or be tempted by IV drug use. And they have continued to make that recommendation, year after year, giving the same dosage shot to a baby – even an extremely tiny premature baby - as a 19 year old would get. Despite the fact that the US is the only country that vaccinates babies on their first day of life. Despite the fact that the Us also has the highest first day of life death rate – 50% higher than the all the other industrialized countries combined…..Really. Read that again – it's true How can we not be outraged by this?! How is THIS not front page news?
Autism Epidemic Overshadowed by Small Measles Outbreak
How the Failed MMR Vaccine Has Quarantined a Detention Center
By James Grundvig
Sixty days ago an illegal alien carried the measles virus into the Eloy Detention Center in Phoenix, Arizona, and spread the virus to one of the federal workers; from there it spread. The 1,600-bed facility serves as temporary station for migrants and illegals facing trials, deportation hearings, and other bureaucratic processing.
The Corrections Corporation of America (CCA), a private contracting firm, runs Eloy from Nashville, Tennessee. While it provides 24-hour guard and security services, agents for the Immigration and Custom Enforcement (ICE,) agency care for, manage, debrief, and interview the inmates. The facility, however, doesn’t have a single medical doctor onsite.
To date, twenty-two people have contracted the non-lethal disease. That’s twenty-two over a sixty-day period. That is twenty-two in Eloy, which at the time housed 1,200 detainees, with a staff of 150 ICE agents, and 350 CCA security personnel. All told, there were 1,900 people in the federal detention center at the time of exposure.
With 1,900 people exposed, and hundreds going home from the facility on a daily basis, not including relatives, friends and lawyers visiting the detainees, how come there were only twenty-two measles cases?
Since the “Largest Outbreak in the United States this year,” one newspaper headline gushed, took place in May, 102 of the detainees have been released from the facility. But ICE Immigration Court has not resumed trials yet and likely won’t reopen until the end of July, according to an Arizona Department of Health press release. All visitors must carry proof of vaccinations to enter. No exceptions.
“A nationwide public health crisis may be underway as dozens of workers at an Arizona immigration detention facility have refused to get vaccinated amid a large measles outbreak — currently, the largest outbreak of the disease anywhere in the United States.”
Blaming federal workers for not being vaccinated against measles is total crap and takes away from a great issue that really is an epidemic of Armageddon scale.
Thanks as ever to Levi Quackenboss for this Monday morning zing. Read the full post at the Quackenboss site.
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.
NOTE: Thanks to James Lyons Weiler for this post following the attempt to mandate Gardasil in Pennsylvania. And here's an article From Trib Live Allegheny County Board of Health won't pursue HPV .vaccine mandate
By James Lyons Weiler
PITTSBURGH, PA. Local residents are wondering who to contact to report a sudden emergence of awareness in the risks of vaccination after a proposal emerged to the Allegheny Board of Health to consider writing a proposal to make HPV vaccination of 11- and 12-year olds mandatory for all who want to attend public school.
People who suffer from this condition, called “Vaccine Risk Awareness”, or VRA, report various symptoms including thinking for themselves, taking responsibility for their own health care decisions, and for those of their children, and various neurological symptoms such as having a brain capable of understanding that
- >95% of all HPV infections are cleared w/in 2 years with no signs of cancers, or precursors to cancer;
- current HPV vaccines only work on <10% of the HPV types circulating, of which there are around 100, and thus, contrary to claims by doctors and Merck, the vaccine cannot eradicate HPV infections;
- the CDC’s own data show no net change in overall HPV infection due to the use of HPV vaccines in the US:
- no study has ever been done that demonstrates that incomplete immunization via HPV vaccine lead to a reduction in cancer rates due to HPV;
State and local health departments, along with large medical practices, are poised to increase adult immunization rates by implementing policies and procedures that support a program known as “Standing Orders.”
At a recent event held in Boston, a small group of demonstrators stood outside the Westin Copley hotel where the Take A Stand™: Use Standing Orders to Improve Adult Immunization Rates workshop was taking place. The workshop is described as “a unique national program being conducted for a limited time by the Immunization Action Coalition (IAC), supported by a sponsorship from Pfizer”.
If IAC sounds familiar it is because they are the group that boasted how they used their listserv to get “Vaxxed” banned from Tribeca Film Festival.
Demonstrators explained the problem is that Standing Orders is a form of collusion and corruption to push pharmaceutical interests, spreading it out across the country via the kind of workshops held in Boston. In other words, they are going straight to health departments and doctor practices to show them how to increase adult immunizations rates via on file Standing Orders to vaccinate according to the CDC adult schedule (flu, shingles, boosters). The move essentially shuts down public knowledge and discourse on the subject by going around state legislators or open forums for discussion.
According to Dr. L.J. Tan from IAC, “Our challenge is adult immunization rates are very poor. Standing Orders allow a practice to routinize administration of vaccines,” Tan said.
By routinize, Tan clarified that it meant the practitioner, or someone on staff, can have a conversation about the need for boosters or other adult vaccines. However, the caveat in the details is that it means your personal physician can write in your medical charts a “standing order”, which can then be done against your knowledge or will in any hospital setting.
What happens in hospitals?
Excerpted from Breitbart.
A group of parents and organizations sued the State of California last Friday in an attempt to stop the vaccine mandate that now stands in effect for the upcoming school year.
Six parents and four not-for-profit organizations joined together to file the lawsuit against the State of California and its applicable departments and authorities. The plaintiffs seek relief based on “a child’s right to an education” as “long recognized” by the California Supreme Court, according to court documents.
The four organizations joining in the lawsuit are: Nevada-based Education for All, D.C.-based Weston A. Price Foundation, Nevada-based Citizens for Health, and Georgia-based Alliance for Natural Healt
Waves of efforts to stop vaccine mandate SB 277 failed to stop the legislators bent on its passage. The bill that became law and went into effect on July 1 of this year eliminated California parents’ choice in whether to vaccinate their children unless they have the means to homeschool or enroll a child in non-classroom-based independent study. Gone are the personal belief waivers that allowed parents to opt a child out of even one dose of a required vaccine and still attend public or private school.
Those that opposed SB 277 did so for a host of reasons and from across the political spectrum. California now has one of the most stringent vaccine mandates in the country. As the new lawsuit states, 47 states allow some sort of personal or religious exemption from required vaccinations.

NOTE: We excerpted this review of "Master Manipulator: The Explosive True Story of Fraud, Embezzlement, and Government Betrayal at the CDC” from Epoch Times. Read the full review here.
By Lou Conte
Dirty deeds often require dirty people.
For the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Poul Thorsen, the subject of James Grundvig’s just-released book, “Master Manipulator: The Explosive True Story of Fraud, Embezzlement, and Government Betrayal at the CDC” (Introduction by Robert F. Kennedy Jr.), was the right man at the right time.
In the late 1990s, the CDC’s Vaccine Safety Division, led by Dr. Coleen Boyle, was facing a growing public realization that autism was reaching epidemic levels. Many parents and some scientists suspected vaccines were the culprit in triggering the catastrophe. They pointed the finger at the increasing levels of Thimerosal, a mercury-based preservative used in many vaccines. In a stunning failure of oversight, no government regulatory agency caught the fact that mercury exposure in childhood vaccines vastly exceeded safety limits.
Editor's note -- Is Del Bigtree the best thing to happen to the vaccine injury awareness movement in a long time? I vote yes. Thanks to John Stone for pointing out this powerful speech -- one of the finest I've heard in 11 years on this beat -- by Del in Santa Monica on July 1. As John put it: "A colossal speech which particularly focuses on our bought-out media, and the news black-out on the William Thompson affair." Del compares the Thompson revelations to new evidence that might exonerate a death row inmate but is dismissed because the case is supposedly "proven." That would never fly. Similarly, he shouts, "The science is never settled!." Tell it, Brother! Let the fireworks continue! And check it out, everyone. -- Dan Olmsted
From the National Vaccine Information Center. Freedom.

Every summer, Americans celebrate the 4th of July to mark the day in 1776 when the American colonies agreed they would no longer be ruled by an aristocracy. The Declaration of Independence begins with, “We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights.” That Declaration was a rejection of oppression by a ruling aristocracy and the pledge that this country would uphold the unalienable natural right to life and liberty that belongs to every person.
Excerpted from the Levi Quackenboss blog: California Kids Strike Back.
One year from the day that California’s SB 277 was signed into law by Governor Brown, a dream team of lawyers from across the United States has filed a federal lawsuit against the State of California’s Department of Education and Department of Health for depriving its residents of their constitutional right to an education.
Approximately 2.5% of California school-aged children use a personal belief exemption to opt out of vaccinations that violate their parents’ religious or deeply-held beliefs, or are deemed unnecessary or potentially harmful by their parents and health care providers. The children of the lawsuit’s plaintiffs have been partially vaccinated or show antibody titers that qualify as proof of immunity to disease, and yet they are among the tens of thousands of healthy, disease-free children whose right to an education will be violated when school starts in the last few days of August.
In a beautifully written memo in support of their request for a temporary restraining order and injunction against the state, lawyers argue that SB 277 violates the fundamental rights to education, free exercise of religion, bodily integrity, and equal protection under the law.
45 years ago in a famous case named Serrano vs. Priest, the California court minced no words when it stated that the right to an education is “perhaps the most important function of state and local governments.” That is because an education is crucial for later financial success, it is important for building social relationships, it continues on for 13 years of a child’s life, and it impacts a child’s psychological and emotional well-being.
Education is so important that school attendance is required by law.
While some parents are able to make the sacrifices necessary to home school their children, home schooling is not possible for the overwhelming majority of families. This includes families that rely on two incomes to make ends meet, single parent households, those who do not speak English, and parents who don’t feel capable enough to teach their children themselves. This means that the impact SB 277 has on poorer families will be felt the greatest. Read more at California Kids Strike Back.

I wasn’t going to write this blog until next week but my flight landed and clearly all of you are standing by to hear how today went, so I am sitting down the minute I walked into my house to update you.
This is going to be quick and dirty because it’s late and I haven’t slept after flying into and out of DC today and yesterday. The background is that a few months ago I approached Tami Canal, the founder of March Against Monsanto (MAM), to strike a deal: if I gave her the link to watch Vaxxed before just about anyone else in the country, she would write a review of it and promote it on Facebook. Because of an incoming link to my blog earlier in the year I realized her position on vaccines for the first time– and the fact that the anti-GMO group isn’t united with the vaccine freedom group boggled my mind. We’ve got to get it together. Long story short, she accepted. Vaxxed lit a fire in her and I put her in contact with people who advocate on the federal level. As kismet would have it, Tami is a constituent of Congressman Jason Chaffetz, who is the Chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform (OGR)– the committee charged with investigating the CDC Whistleblower hot potato. Because MAM has over a million followers, she was able to get a meeting with her Congressman and a half dozen of us convened in Representative Chaffetz’s office this afternoon without him knowing who was coming. Surprise! We brought Del Bigtree, one of the producers of Vaxxed, with us. Read more at Levi's site:
Here's a video of Del Bigtree of VaXxed with March Against Monsanto founder Tami Canal. Del speaks about the disconnect among many liberals and progressives: they can see the duplicity, lying and corporate greed in Monsanto and our food supply and American health but have not opened their eyes to the parallel world of pharma, government interference and vaccine injury. Below is a video from Facebook live of Del at Utah Congressman Jason Chaffetz's office to call for a subpeona of Dr. William Thompson and hearings on the CDC whistle blower. Thank you to Del, as ever.

We'd like to the Thinking Moms for sharing this blog post by Sandi Marcus and the new book from Skyhorse Publishing.
What is it like to be part of a very special family, one that revolves around a child’s struggle with autism or a related developmental disorder? In Revolutionary Grandparents, twenty-two grandmothers and grandfathers from the Thinking Moms’ Revolution community share their experience and offer advice to others facing this monumental struggle.
Many of these grandparents have moved in with their children and grandchildren to help with daily tasks—all have had to alter their lives drastically. From their front-row seat, they recount their stories. They describe what they observed and felt as their grandchildren regressed into autism, as well as the challenges their families faced as a result. But more importantly, they also write about the progress and the successes of their grandchildren. No two stories are alike in their details, but each one is similar in its honesty, passion, and overwhelming hope. Positivity is the common thread that ties together this unique collection of mini-memoirs.

The question I have been asked so many times is "Why?” Why would you tell your personal story in a book for everyone to know about your struggle as an Autism grand parent.
PART III AUTISM NUMBERS
CDC and NCBDDD Director Coleen Boyle’s other talent, beyond paying foreign mercenary scientists to manipulate data to produce desirable results, has been their ability to knead and suppress the skyrocketing autism incidence rates, which have exploded from 1 in 2,500 in 1990 to 1 in 250 at the start of the new millennium. In 2014, CDC announced ASD rates had shot up yet again to 1 in 68 for every child born in the United States.
Then an odd thing happened on March 31, 2016: CDC announced victory of sorts. Autism rates had stabilized, unchanged from two years ago at 1 in 68. In CDC’s corrupt ivory tower view, it was something to cheer about as it gave the false perception that CDC had the epidemic finally under control. It does not. And the lie of the “better diagnosis epidemic” continues.
The Philadelphia Inquirer website, Philly.com, gushed: “The autism rates was 1 in 68 children in 2012, the same as it was in 2010, according to the latest data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.”
But that statement was wrong. In 2010, CDC’s rate of ASD incidence had climbed to 1 in 88. Even if the reporter had been correct, he was taking CDC’s word at blind allegiance, which he could have torpedoed the false number had the reporter done a bare minimum search online. Then, he would have discovered that HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in October 2009 “had no idea why” the rates had climbed to 1 in 100 children on the spectrum, and said: “The prevalence of autism might be even higher than previously thought . . . We don’t know if it has gone up, and we are hoping to unlock these mysteries.”
No such luck. No mysteries were ever uncovered by HHS, NIH, CDC or any other health agency for the last seven years. Mainstream press never bothered to look into the unmitigated tragedy of a growing legion of children with learning disabilities, leaky guts, shot nervous systems, brain signaling malfunctions, muscle atrophy, and a Vaccine Court that refuses to compensate most of the victims, which number well over one million victims today under 18 years old.
And yet, the announcement had been trumpeted with great relief at CDC, as if Coleen Boyle had run the 26 miles in ancient Greece, from Marathon to Athens, shouting “Nike!” before collapsing to the ground. Two problems, however, emerged for the director of National Center of Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities in her agency’s victory lap, besides it being false and premature.
MINNESOTA DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH SCHOOLS PROFESSIONALS TO PERSUADE SOMALI PARENTS TO GIVE THEIR CHILDREN THE MMR VACCINE – DESPITE CLEAR OPPOSITION
Note: Excerpted from the Vaccine of Safety Council of Minnesota. Thank you to Patti Carroll for sharing with us.
By Patti Carroll, VSCM board member
I apologize for the long title, but it’s important that readers understand exactly what our tax dollars are being spent on.
On Wednesday, April 13th, I attended an educational forum for professionals put on by the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH). The title of the forum was “Autism in the Somali Community and Vaccine Hesitancy”. The stated purpose was: “This session will provide the latest information on autism spectrum disorder (ASD) by a national childhood development expert and updates on immunization data relevant to Minnesota Somali children”.
This is the 3rd of 4 interviews on this topic... the 1st (with Del Bigtree) and the 2nd (with Brian Deer) can be found HERE. Thanks again to AofA and all of you for all the feedback-- even though I can't respond to all of it I promise I'm seeing it and it's appreciated.
After talking to Del Bigtree and Brian Deer, one of the aspects of the subject of vaccine injury I wanted to hear more about was the U.S. Vaccine Court, which kept coming up, and the case of Hannah Poling, which it seemed was a tough case for the "Vaccines never ever cause autism" side to refute.
The explanation given for her case seems to be that Hannah wasn't compensated for her autism, even though she has an autism diagnosis, but was instead compensated for her "encephalopathy seizures" which resulted in "autism-like symptoms". I had trouble understanding the difference, and in his interview with Sanjay Gupta it seemed to all be the same to Hannah's neurologist father Jon also, so I reached out to him to see if he could explain it.
Jon didn't want to talk, but he did turn me on to the work of Mary Holland and Lou Conte, who as many of you AofA-ers probably know are 2 parents who after much scientific and observational research have come to the conclusion vaccine injury is the only plausible explanation for the regression of their children into autism.
In their Pace University article Mary and Lou found 83 other cases of autism among the vaccine-injured kids compensated for brain injury, which was eye-opening, and in the interview Lou poses a seemingly fair question:
"If vaccines don't cause autism, how come all these children compensated for vaccine injury have autism?"
Here's my conversation with Mary and Lou:

As a quick reminder, this is the 2nd of 4 interviews. The first was with Del Bigtree, producer of Vaxxed, which you can listen to here if you haven't yet.
In this next one I wanted to talk to someone who feels differently about the controversial topic of vaccines and autism than Del does, so it seemed there would be no more diametrically opposed viewpoint than that of Brian Deer.
I know I don't have to tell most of you Brian is the investigative journalist who accused VAXXED director Doctor Wakefield of fraud in a series of Sunday Times articles and initiated the investigation that got Wakefield's medical license revoked in England years ago. He's the source of much controversy and many strong feelings, and Brian himself has strong feelings about Wakefield, so I wanted to hear directly from him what his thoughts were about the topic and why.
So here's that interview:
I'd also like to address the fact that in the comments section I've seen people wonder if I'm some sort of "plant" sent from high above to hurt the case against vaccines, which I assure you I will swear on a stack of any kind of holy book you may read I'm not.
I've also seen people question how this interview happened. It's simple really- Brian's email is public on his website, I emailed him, and he responded (see photo at the top of this post.)
I'm not sure if that will help put those concerns to bed, but if not I think you'll find the episode shows we are anything but in league together. I look forward to hearing more from you about it.
I should also say that in the 2 days since the first interview posted, I've found myself the target of ire from both sides. Anti-vaxxers are angry that my wife and I still plan to try to find a safe way to vaccinate our baby girl, while pro-vaxxers are angry that by doing these interviews I'm giving a platform to the makers of Vaxxed and like-minded anti-vaxxers.
It's been heated, but it's ok. I can take it. I'm a big boy. I knew this was a contentious comment, and I expected to hear a lot of

Many readers may not know Columbia University’s President, Lee C. Bollinger. However, if one explores the issues around censorship as Wayne Rohde and I have over the past several weeks, Bollinger’s name quickly emerges.
Bollinger, a First Amendment scholar, is a brilliant man and a champion of free speech. Please take a look at his biography on the Columbia University website As the biography notes, “his most recent book, Uninhibited, Robust, and Wide-Open: A Free Press for a New Century (Inalienable Rights), has placed Bollinger at the center of public discussion about the importance of global free speech to continued social progress.”
Bollinger has been willing to allow free speech, even when controversy ensues. In 2007 he allowed then Iranian President Ahmadinejad to speak at Columbia. The decision rankled many. Ahmadinejad did say some controversial and some would say offensive things (there are clips of the speech on YouTube if anyone wishes to see it).
In 2012, Bollinger “established the Columbia Global Freedom of Expression and Information Project, a new initiative joining international experts and activists with the University’s faculty and students to survey, document and strengthen free expression. He has named Agnès Callamard, a distinguished human rights advocate who was director of the organization ARTICLE 19, as executive director of the Project.”
The project has brought together many influential leaders on freedom of speech and freedom of the press like Callamard and Amal Clooney.
According to Bollinger, “Looking around the world today and seeing the pervasiveness of censorship in so many forms and societies, none of us should be under any illusions about the challenges we face in establishing international norms for a truly free press… Doing so requires that we both understand the facts on the ground and succeed in creating a global framework for protecting speech and expression. These are steps that have become inseparable from progress on human rights and continued worldwide economic growth.” [i]
Bollinger’s vision of freedom and opposition to censorship stands in stark contrast to the conduct of one of his professors, Dr. Ian Lipkin, professor of epidemiology and Director of the Center for Infection and Immunity at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health.
From the Columbia University Public Health Now webpage:
On April 4, 2016, the Wall Street Journal ran an important op-ed from Ian Lipkin, Director of the Mailman School’s Center for Infection and Immunity. Lipkin and Mailman School Board of Overseers member Perri Peltz (MPH ’84) worked diligently behind the scenes to persuade organizers of the Tribeca Film Festival that the fraudulent science of Andrew Wakefield’s documentary “Vaxxed” had no place at the prestigious festival. When Lipkin learned that a private distributor had arranged a week of screenings at New York's Angelica Film Center, he went to work immediately on a piece that reminds us of the importance of scientific evidence in our ongoing work to understand and treat autism. [ii]
Lipkin writes in his April 3 Wall Street Journal Op Ed: “I am among those Mr. De Niro consulted. In a 45-minute phone conversation with him, I recommended that the festival withdraw the film from the “documentary” category and not screen it.”
Wayne Rohde and I have been writing a series on the censorship of Andrew Wakefield’s film, Vaxxed: From Cover-up to Catastrophe. The film has been pulled from the Tribeca Film Festival, the Houston (Texas) Worldfest Film Festival and from screenings in Arizona at Harkins theatres after that company received pressure from pediatricians.
In our previous articles, we reported that Alison Singer, the President of the Autism Science Foundation, proudly declared in a March Guardian article that she and other members of the Immunization Action Coalition’s (IAC) Listserv were instrumental in having Vaxxed removed from the Tribeca Film Festival.
Singer told the Guardian, “Four or five years ago we weren’t as well organized and people didn’t realize the importance of responding quickly and strongly,” said Alison Singer, the president of the Autism Science Foundation and a member of the IAC listserv…Today, we know that we have to respond to every incident however large or small, because if you leave any of these discredited theories unchallenged, it allows people to think that there’s something still to be discussed.”
According to Singer, the IAC Listserv is a public relations response squad that snuffs out and counters public statements of those the Listserv decides are “anti-vaccine.”
However, in our last report, the IAC denied that they were responsible for the calls that lead to the Tribeca decision, essentially leaving Alison Singer ‘holding the bag.’
Alison Singer has not responded to our requests for information about the incident.
Thanks to the Columbia University website, another member of Alison Singer’s Listserv have now been revealed: Dr. Ian Lipkin.
We have information about other Listserv members from sources and we are constructing a list. For now, we are talking about Singer and Lipkin.
As the Director of the Center for Infection and Immunity at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health, Lipkin helped bring millions of dollars of CDC and federal health funding he brings to Columbia. [iii] Lipkin also the Co-Chair of the CDC’s National Bio-surveillance Advisory Subcommittee. [iv]
It is also important to note that Lipkin’s name surfaces in the legally recorded conversations between Dr. Brian Hooker and Dr. William Thompson that serve as a critical component of Vaxxed. Lipkin likely knew about this as the Thompson/Hooker transcripts are public thanks to Kevin Barry’s book, Vaccine Whistleblower: Exposing Autism research Fraud at the CDC. [v]
Lipkin points out in his editorial that he was involved in research that exonerated the MMR vaccine. While Lipkin feels that his work was the final word, Thompson, who had some oversight responsibility at the CDC for Lipkin’s work told Brian Hooker something very different.
Dr. Thompson: “It was the worst study ever.”
What follows is an excerpt of the Thompson transcripts regarding Ian Lipkin and his MMR research from pages 103 and 104 of Vaccine Whistleblower:
Dr. Thompson: Where they went and did the biopsies. This Larry Pickering, Ian Lipkin . . .
Dr. Hooker: Oh yeah. I know all about this.
Dr. Thompson: Okay. Did you and I talk about this study?
Dr. Hooker: Ah, no. You and I have never . . . I’ve talked to Ian Lipkin about it. In fact, he and I . . .
Dr. Thompson: Okay.
Dr. Hooker: . . . are not speaking right now, because basically he doesn’t like me very much. Okay?

Read Part 1 Six Lethal Sins of CSC A Toxic Legacy of Lies here.
While Dr. Coleen Boyle and CDC were looking for a quick exit from the Agent Orange Studies by 1986, US Congress handed the keys to product paradise to the vaccine manufacturers, insulating them from harm and liability for bad, defective, and often ineffective vaccines.
Congress created the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act that year. It was supposed to serve two virtuous goals. The first, fully shield the vaccine makers from liability. That guaranteed the billion dollar multinational corporations could not be sued for any unsafe, harmful or deadly vaccine they brought to the market. The second—and righteous aspect—the Act created a path for injured children to bypass the U.S. court system to plead their case in front of “special masters” in National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP), or “Vaccine Court.”
In the former, the no liability shield gave Big Pharma carte blanche to make vaccines as cheap and easy for rapid distribution, lightly testing their efficacy. It also gave them Wall Street incentive to make dozens of new vaccines for any type of diseases, whether boys had a cervix or not to protect from cancer, and whether the HPV vaccine, contrary to WebMD, works in protecting children from most of the 200 types of human papillomavirus (HPV), when it shields only eight (8%) percent of those strains. In the latter, big government’s good intentions would one day be steamrolled by the reality of hundreds of thousands of the children being injured by vaccines that would bankrupt Vaccine Court before it reached its 20th anniversary.
In 1992, CDC recruited an anthropologist conducting epidemiology studies on children cancer clusters from the well contamination sites in Woburn, Massachusetts, north of Boston. The PhD Diana Schendel moved to Atlanta and worked under Coleen Boyle at CDC for the rest of the decade. Dr. Schendel became an integral part in executing Boyle’s deceptive technique of no association between toxins in vaccines and injured children, hiring rogue scientists in Denmark to prove it.
2.1 THIMEROSAL (MERCURY)
In 1991, a Swedish scientist sent a brief—Difficult to Substitute Mercury as a Preservative in Bacterial Vaccines—to the Danish health authority, which in turn forward it to the “most successful vaccineologist in history” Dr. Maurice R. Hilleman. His report called out the problems with the mercury-based preservative thimerosal to the director of the National Institute of Health (NIH).
Not wasting time, Denmark banned thimerosal from all of its vaccines in 1992. Did the United States follow suit? No. The “most successful vaccineologist” figured it was best (“cheapest”) to leave it in. Why did he recommend that? Part of it was his clear conflict of interest: Dr. Hilleman was a lead scientist at Merck, a giant vaccine manufacturer. He was the inventor of Measles-Mumps-Rubella (MMR) triple shot vaccine, which launched to widespread use in 1978, with Merck owning the patent. Maurice Hilleman had more than one dog in the fight. . . he had three.
Fast-forward to 2012: The United Nations (UN) proposed a global ban on mercury in all consumer products in a treaty, including thimerosal in vaccines. But the American Association of Pediatrics (AAP) would have none of that. AAP joined the World Health Organization (WHO) to fight the ban. In effect, those health organizations forced the UN to give thimerosal an exemption from that ban, which was carried out in dental fillings and cosmetics. Another opportunity to do the right thing for infants and children slipped away to fast, cheap, and easy.
Dr. Louis Z. Cooper, past president of AAP, stated, “As many as 84 million children globally are dependent on vaccines whose safe distribution requires availability of thimerosal as a preservative.” Yes, Western health organizations experiment on the poor over and again.
Dr. Michael Brady, chair of the AAP Committee on Infectious Diseases, added: “However, the portion of mercury in the environment that is resulting from thimerosal in vaccines is infinitesimally small. And its current use has allowed us to safely provide vaccines to millions of children around the world.”
Yes, “infinitesimally small” for the environment. But what about a tiny fetus? A newborn baby is acres smaller than the much greater environment. By dismissing the world ban on thimerosal in 2013, vaccine makers’ bottom line of fast, cheap, and easy was protected once again well into the future. Were the AAP and WHO nuts? No, they were shielding the golden cash cow of vaccines.
In between 1992 and 2012, many more opportunities were missed to permanently remove thimerosal from vaccines. In the summer of 1999, two manufacturers—Merck and GlaxoSmith-Kline—wrote letters to the CDC stating they could make the switch and still make a ton of money. But the powers at CDC, including Coleen Boyle, had other ideas. With a nudge from the FDA, CDC “recommended” the passive, voluntary removal thimerosal from vaccines instead. That meant mercury would be phased out after nurses and pediatricians used the stockpiles over the next couple of years. The self-policing of thimerosal didn’t last long. After 2003, thimerosal came all the way back injected into the flu vaccine, and again in 2009 in the H1N1 Swine Flu pandemic.
In collusion, Vaccine Court and CDC took advantage of the “removal of thimerosal” from vaccines, giving a short statute of limitations of three years to file a claim, as James Grundvig did with his son in 2005—within the timeline of his autism diagnosis. He was one of the lucky 5,400 children that would one day have their cases heard before the special masters and be compensated for harm.
The true colors of the CDC came out in 2000-2004 when it hired mercenary scientists from Denmark to cook data, after the backtesting of datasets in the Danish Health Registries, when its own peer-reviewed literature failed to produce the desired results. The Dane, a CDC visiting foreign scientist named Dr. Poul Thorsen, was paid to have his “research team” at a Danish university falsify and manipulate the data, omitting entire cohorts and years. In a page from Coleen Boyle, Thorsen’s then girlfriend CDC’s Diana Schendel took the no association playbook to the next level, showing no links between either the MMR vaccine or thimerosal in vaccines and tie it to the skyrocketing rise of autism incidence rates.

On December 13, 2001, I published “Autism 2001: The Silent Epidemic”.
It was the third yearly investigation I had published and to my knowledge, the first time anyone had ever described Autism as a “Silent Epidemic.”
It is with sadness and trepidation that I use again, some 14 + years later, the same term to describe the latest significant and possibly inadvertently created iatrogenic epidemic.
The May 2016 issue of The American Journal of Managed Care was a Special Issue totally devoted to Hepatitis C Viral Infections.
- Four Clinical Reports
- Two Commentaries
- One Editorial
- Four Policy Statements
According to M. Caffrey who reviewed the publication on May 4, 2016, the CDC has reported that:
- Some 20,000 individuals died from hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection and complications in 2014, more than in any other prior year
- Because of poor reporting, it is likely that the death toll from the HCV infections was actually higher
- Estimated cases of HCV disease doubled between 2010 and 2014
- HCV infections - related complications had become the top cause of death among all 60 listed infectious diseases, including HIV and tuberculosis.
"Vaxxed" is a timely authentic film that shows how Dr. William Thompson, a senior scientist at the CDC, was aware that the MMR vaccine ( Mumps, Measles, and Rubella) was responsible for thousands of children becoming autistic. Autism in my view is simply a code word for brain Encephalitis or swelling of the brain. Thompson was forced to hide the data particularly when it came to black boys in the Atlanta, Georgia area that received the three in one vaccine below the age of 36 months. All children get that vaccine usually between 15 to 18 months. All nationalities of children suffer similar adverse events but the scientific proof is uncovered with this particular population.
It appears that Dr. Thompson could not continue to live with his conscience as more children fell ill or died since the data came to light beginning in 2004. When people read reviews claiming that the film is about Andrew Wakefield-you can bet that the journalists never saw the film. They simply cut, copied, and pasted those reviews. Previously, children received individual shots for Measles, Mumps, or Rubella. Once it was combined , it made the vaccine cheaper for the pharmaceutical corporation to produce. It is the children that suffered.
What few parents or grandparents realize is that vaccines contain aluminum, thimerosal, formaldehyde, aborted fetal cells, peanut oils leading to anaphylaxis, cells of pigs, cows( with Leukemia cells too small to remove), dogs, monkeys, chicks, insects, MSG, ether and a list of other toxins. They do not know that the "live" vaccines shed illness to others.
It is said that the mumps portion does not work and that rabbit's blood was added to the testing to make it appear that it does. There is a federal lawsuit pending for about 5 years so far. If one portion of the vaccine is invalid-then the entire vaccine must be scrapped. That would cost the manufacturer much of their profits.
Six Lethal Sins of CDC: A Toxic Legacy of Lies
If you think the Washington establishment has upset most Americans this election year read the following indictment on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). For the healthcare agency, which went out of its way to find “no association” between Agent Orange and injured Vietnam veterans during the 1980s, and then toxic vaccines and the autism epidemic, its legacy of fraud, bad science, and manipulation and omitting data goes beyond the sins of finding no links.
CDC has committed the Six Sins dating back to World War II. It repeats those insults today. Other sins have included tainted vaccines that killed hundreds and injured thousands in the fabricated 1976 Swine Flu panic. Another sin was the experimentation of African-Americans, the poor and mentally disabled. Perhaps more disturbing and corrupt has been CDC’s manufacturing of fear in flu and virus pandemics to secure billions of dollars for vaccine research that is needless, ineffective, and deadly. CDC adds to its litany of abuses by “cooking” the autism numbers. In suppressing the true severity of the epidemic, when autistic children soon become adults it will require a burden of care, while removing them as productive members of society. This is a massive wealth transfer from U.S. taxpayers to the Big Pharma monolith, for which the CDC has been deeply embedded.
A New York Times article on the National Football League (NFL) exposed the alleged practice of league scientists’ omitting 100 former players injured by concussions from the dataset analysis. The NFL did it to show no association between the collision sport and Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE), which has lead to premature dementia and death in many of its former players. If that’s a major scandal, then what is CDC‘s same practice perpetuated against U.S. troops, minorities and children? More alarming—the architects of this fraud are still in charge at CDC.
With two CDC whistleblowers coming forward in as many years, airing the agency’s dirty secrets, one begins to see that, after the NSA and CIA, CDC is a Teflon agency not fearful of being corrupt or exposed in its money grab against humanity—your health for their wealth. CDC is beyond greed.
Six Lethal Sins of the CDC:
- Agent Orange: In the 1980s CDC quit the U.S. Congress-mandated Agent Orange Studies two years early, while finding “no link” between dioxin and injured veterans.
- Vaccines: Since 1990, the U.S. Vaccine program has run amok, keeping toxins in (aluminum, mercury in Thimerosal) while allowing a generation of children to become gravely ill.
- Autism Numbers: When the autism incidence rate exploded in 1990, instead of finding the cause, CDC, like the NFL, corrupted studies showing no association.

As I write this, Vaxxed, the film, the movement, the awakening, is sweeping the country, arriving in hungry city after hungry city. Today Atlanta. Next Chicago. Compton LA on Thursday.
Nations around the world are begging for Vaxxed to come to them too. Film stars, rap stars, politicians, even doctors are getting on board, after they see, and are transformed by the film.
There is now more demand than Vaxxed can even meet. Perhaps they are hiring more staff.
As one veteran vaccine warrior mother put it on FB: “The tide is not turning. It has turned.”
(By the way, my desk’s paperweight is a medium sized chunk of the Berlin Wall, which I picked up myself, in November 1989. Technically it is the property of GDR, but that does not exist anymore. This is my wish for the CDC.)
Last week, the Vaxxed team– now a touring three piece rock band, or maybe The Avengers–Del Bigtree, (representing, science journalism, and major league baseball) Andrew Wakefield (representing persecuted science, and big picture) and Polly Tommy (representing the awakened mother, media, and the Mod*) (*will explain later) did what is known as an “ambush” at SB 277 architect Senator Richard Pan’s (D-Sacramento) office, in an effort to talk to him. Pan bolted down a corridor, and two flights of stairs, igniting the obvious hashtag #PanRan, which exploded on social media.
(It is funny, when Del Bigtree says, “I have to hand it to Pan. He is fast.”)

The revolving door of government/industry is not new. But do keep in mind that the head of the FDA is from Monsanto.

From The Wall Street Journal:
What’s healthier than a Pop-Tart?
Not almonds, according to today’s regulatory rules. That could change as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration kicks off a review of the 1990s official definition of “healthy” at the urging of food companies and lawmakers.
The U.S. regulator is planning to ask the public as well as food experts for comment on what should be the modern definition of healthy, setting off a process that could take years to complete. But the decision to redefine the term marks a major step in the FDA’s effort to catch up to changing ideas about health and eating habits.
The agency also noted a petition filed by Kind LLC. The maker of fruit-and-nut bars started campaigning for change after being sent a warning letter by the agency last year ordering it to stop using the term “healthy” on its packaging. The FDA rescinded that demand last month, though Kind made other tweaks to its labels based on the FDA’s missive. Read more here.

"I gotta hand it to him. Pan is fast!" Del Bigtree.
Dr. Richard Pan, sponsor of California vaccine exemption removal law SB277 ran away from VaXxed producer Del Bigtree when Bigtree tried to ask him questions about vaccination safety and the CDC Whistleblower.
Pan ran... Here's a video from Bigtree - and few others we added to showcase the absurdity of a pharmatrician like Dr. Richard Pan being so utterly unable to stand up and speak out for his "passion" for pediatric health when confronted. A bit about Dr. Pan and SB277:
SACRAMENTO –Dr. Richard Pan, a pediatrician and Senator representing Sacramento, Senator Ben Allen, the former Board President of the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District and Assemblymember Lorena Gonzalaz who represents San Diego have introduced Senate Bill 277 to repeal the personal belief exemption that currently allows parents to opt their child out of vaccines in our schools.
“It is our duty and responsibility to protect all children who attend schools in California,” said Dr. Richard Pan, a State Senator representing Sacramento who has been working legislatively to get vaccination rates up while in the State Assembly. “SB 277 was introduced because parents are speaking up and letting us know that current laws are not enough to protect their children. As a pediatrician I have personally witnessed the suffering caused by diseases that are preventable, and I am very grateful to all those parents who are speaking up as a result of the recent measles outbreak.”
According to multiple reliable sources, CDC whistleblower Dr. William Thompson, a senior scientist at the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), will soon publish a reworking of data from a controversial study first published in 2004. If true, this is of major concern. For over a decade, officials have cited this disputable study to claim no connection between the Measles, Mumps, Rubella (MMR) vaccine and autism and to deny compensation to parents of MMR vaccine-injured children.
Dr. Thompson has admitted in taped phone conversations and in a statement through his lawyer, that he and other authors of the study, which include senior officials at CDC, manipulated the data and violated study protocol to conceal their findings linking the MMR vaccine to autism. In what can only be described as scientific fraud, Dr. Thompson is now poised to publish “a rework” of the data in a blatant attempt to exonerate the MMR vaccine.
This rework comes on the heels of the just-released documentary Vaxxed: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe, which exposes the CDC’s fraud, deceit, and obstruction of justice regarding the MMR vaccine. Vaxxed has received global media attention and is waking up Americans coast to coast to the criminal activity at the CDC. It is suspicious that Thompson and the CDC have now decided, 20 months since Thompson first blew the whistle of fraud and malfeasance at CDC, to take action by publishing a rework of the data.
Excerpted from Dr. David Brownstein's blog. Read the full post Congress Should Be Shamed The Vaccine Crises Continues.
I just returned from watching the movie, Vaxxed, From Cover-Up to Catastrophe. The movie is upsetting and infuriating. If you have not seen the movie, I highly recommend that you go see it.
This movie chronicles the controversy about the CDC whistleblower (Dr. William Thompson) who claims that the CDC altered, hid, and destroyed data that showed a link between childhood autism and vaccines. I have been writing about this controversy since August, 2014. (You can access the first post here.) In August, 2014, Dr. William Thompson, a senior CDC scientist who co-authored 10-year-old studies that exonerated vaccines from causing autism came forward and claimed that the studies he co-authored were fraudulent. Dr. Thompson’s allegations are chronicled in this movie and in my previous blog posts.
Every parent, physician, and thinking human being should see this movie.
Whether Dr. Thompson’s claims hold true or not, Congress needs to investigate why our children are given more and more vaccines and yet, have become sicker and sicker.
Since 1997, autism rates have skyrocketed in the U.S. and the Western world. In the U.S., the latest (2015) statistics show that one in forty-five children are estimated to have autism. (1) In 1995, it was estimated that autism was prevalent in one in five hundred children. That is an increase of 1,100%! If the autism rate continues to climb at its present level, some have estimated that one of every two U.S. children will be diagnosed with autism by 2025.
Folks, this is serious stuff. In medical school, I was taught that vaccines were one of the miracles of medicine. I was not taught much about the science behind vaccines, rather I was indoctrinated into the idea that vaccines have been well studied and the proof of their efficacy is beyond questioning.

When a controversial film is pulled from a prestigious festival some claim censorship. Full Measure talks with some filmmakers about who controls what you see, or don't see, in theatres.
Note: We've often argued that autism as a name is insufficient to describe the spectrum and often does a major disservice to those with the diagnosis. Levi Quackenboss tackles the topic and features the video by our own Natalie Palumbo. We suggest you bookmark Levi's blog.:
The Problem With Calling It Autism
By Levi Quackenboss
Every once in a while a reader leaves a comment letting me know that my writing about healing from or preventing autism is offensive to them because they are autistic and lead a happy, fulfilling life. The comment always ends with saying their autism makes them who they are, and they wouldn’t change a thing about themselves, and basically that I need to get over myself.
And I’m listening. I don’t want to insult people with autism while fighting to prevent the next 100,000 kids from developing autism. The 20-year-olds in college, sitting at a computer and leaving comments, aren’t the kids we’re fighting for. We’re fighting for the kids who have 20 seizures a day. The eight-year olds with rancid diarrhea running up their backs when it explodes out of their diapers. The kids with helmets on because they can’t stop banging their heads on the walls. The kids who are nutritionally starving from malabsorption and suffer all the consequences of missing key nutrients and minerals. The kids whose head circumferences shot up from the 50th percentile to the 99th overnight after vaccination. The kids hanging over the arm of the sofa in pain, looking to put pressure on it, but unable to tell their parents what hurts because they lost the ability to speak at 18 months old.
It’s a wide spectrum, which does a disservice to everyone on it. Mothers of severely vaccine damaged children who see comments from autism/neuro-diverse self-advocates say, “You can get online and advocate for yourself? You go! We’re thrilled for you, but we’re busy trying to potty train our kindergartners. We’re not talking about you.”
You are hereby forbidden to view the documentary film Vaxxed. You do not have the knowledge and training to make decisions regarding vaccines for yourself or your children. Vaccine policy is best left to the professionals and corporations who profit from vaccines. Violation of this directive will result in severe consequences.
“We’ve got a counter-government here and we’ve got to fight it. I don’t give a damn how it’s done. Do whatever has to be done to stop those leaks.… I don’t want to be told why it can’t be done.”
Our pursuit of the identities of mysterious members of the Immunization Action Coalition Listserv continues.

Subject: IAC List Serv in The Guardian article
After reading in The Guardian from March 29, 2016, I am very intrigued about the existence of the below mentioned IAC coordinated List Serv. Alison Singer, of the Autism Science Foundation, and a close associate of yours, stated the following in an interview with the Guardian:
“At the center of the network was a listserv group email list of more than 100 prominent individuals and science research bodies run out of the Immunization Action Coalition (IAC) based in St Paul, Minnesota. The listserv acts as an early warning system that sounds the alarm whenever the potent conspiracy theory that autism can be caused by vaccination surfaces. Through the listserv, conference calls were quickly organized among top scientists across the country to discuss how to respond to the news that what was seen as a scurrilous and misleading film was to be given a high-profile airing. Leading figures in the documentary world were also enlisted to add their objections to the showing of Vaxxed, the film directed by the disgraced former British doctor Andrew Wakefield, who was struck off from medical practice in 2010 for serious professional misconduct.
We are pleased to excerpt this post from James Lyons-Weiler, author The Environmental and Genetic Causes of Autism (Skyhorse Publishing). Cures vs. Profits: Successes in Translational Research (World Scientific, 2016) and Ebola: An Evolving Story (World Scientific, 2015). You can read his full post at his site: James Lyons Weiler, PhD
We invite you to visit IPAK and read about the CDC Accountability Project. "The Institute for Pure and Applied Knowledge is a not-for-profit organization* which exists to perform scientific research in the public interest. We use the principles and practices of scientific research to help individual researchers, research teams, consortia, and companies push their project through roadblocks, or map their way around them via evidence-based alternatives."
WHILE RETURNING from the United Nations building where I heard NYU Professor Mary Holland (School of Law) nail the issues of constitutional and international law on the right to informed consent to the floor, to a standing ovation. To my delight, I received an email from Mary, which read, in part:
“I started reading your Ebola book last night. Wow, you have evolved a lot in your thinking on vaccines in a VERY short period, based on your definition of ‘antivaxxers’ at bottom of 206, top of 207. Have you written up how your views evolved so quickly? It might be a helpful roadmap towards turning others around. Was this all in connection with the autism book, or did your views changing precede that book?”
Professor Mary Holland on Vaccination Policies and Human Rights: United Nations 25th International Health and Environment Conference
On Tuesday, April 26, many of us in the vaccine safety/autism community attended a conference at The United Nations in New York City. We were there to hear Professor Mary Holland, Dr. Martha Herbert and Robert F. Kennedy Jr. speak during the second half of this conference, which was devoted to children and toxicity. Kevin Barry presented in lieu of Mr. Kennedy, who was called away due to family obligations. Below is the video from the 3 hour event. Professor Holland's presentation begins at 1:12 - 1:27 and she appears again during the Q&A from 2:09 - 2:18. Her written presentation is below the video.
Also, If you have the time, we invite you to watch the exchange with Dr. Bernard Goldstein during the Q&A. He is the head of the U Pitt School of Public Health and was a panelist. He took umbrage with most of what Professor Holland had to say about vaccines and legal and medical rights. He wiggled in his seat, rolled his eyes and made faces to express his dismay while she spoke. It was a strange display to be sure.

Vaccination Policies and Human Rights
Research Scholar, NYU School of Law
April 26, 2016
I want to start by asking a couple simple questions by a show of hands. How many of you have ever, for any reason, been critical of the United Nations? Security Council, peacekeeper, budget issues come to mind. For any reason. OK.
And how many of you have ever been critical of the United States of America, for any reason? Foreign policy, domestic policy, role at the UN. OK. So you are all here, at the United Nations, in the United States, but the vast majority of you have been critical of these institutions at one time or another for one reason or another.
To me, this is like asking, are you alive? Are you awake? Are you a thinking person? Do you care about the world? Almost all of us we have been critical at some point for some reason of the UN or the US, because these are complex institutions with varying actions and inactions of all kinds on many issues.
I attended a private screening of Vaxxed last week at the Soho House in NYC that was presented by Safeminds. It was an incredibly intimate setting which made seeing this film on such a personal subject that much more comfortable. The main focus of the screening was to invite the press so that they could 1. not condemn a movie they have not seen and 2. get it right on reporting what the movie is actually about. The two medical producers that came from NBC left after about 20 minutes which was of course both rude and unprofessional. Why even bother?
I already knew all the facts in the film and even heard some of the recordings from William Thompson AKA the whistleblower. What I did not expect was to have my respect for Andrew Wakefield deepen even more. He is giving a voice to the voiceless just as Robert De Niro did on the today show both last and this week. Andrew Wakefield could have walked away from this and nobody would have blamed him. Everyone knows what happens to a doctor that sticks their neck out and questions vaccines. They are threatened, ridiculed and even killed. Yes even the ones that just study it are murdered. But he didn’t. He painfully compiled all the information and succinctly put it together in this film with the help of some wonderful people. It is because of him that the voiceless have been given a louder voice in recent weeks.
Robert De Niro gave us parents a voice too! He said what we are all dying to say to the masses. Shame on the Media. You are all just as complicit as the CDC that hid the data and produced a fraudulent study. You are all just as complicit as the Pharmaceutical companies that have known for decades that their products can induce illness, injure and kill children. You are all just as complicit as a president and congress that ignores hundreds of thousands of parents that say their child was injured alongside the explosion in the numbers of autism. Congress has had the whistleblower papers for a long time and done absolutely nothing.
