A Reality Check for the Vicious and Discriminatory Dallas Morning News

Dallas Morning NewsBy Kim Stagliano

The Dallas Morning News has been tasked with discrediting Generation Rescue and Jenny McCarthy's Autism Education Summit.  Check out this headline - could they make it any more Googlevicious?   Can't you hear the "editorial" meeting? Make sure you use the pharma prescribed checklist Clark!  Peddle? Check. Anti-vaxxer? You got it! Jenny McCarthy? Who else? False hope? Yes sir Dr. Offit! Debunked? Hell yeah!

Anti-vaxxer Jenny McCarthy's autism summit peddles dangerous treatments, features discredited doctors


By discrediting I mean blatantly discriminating against children, teens, adults with autism and their families and the providers who treat them.   I'll give you a taste of their vitriol.  An autism summit in Dallas this weekend features  a medical professional who has been disciplined for mistreating children and celebrities who shun science and claim vaccines are dangerous. Autism advocates say the event offers false hope to parents by promoting miracle cures and treatments proved to be dangerous and ineffective. And then below, you'll find a salve.  A woman named Ashlyn Washington posted on Facebook a powerful message about her journey. Your journey. My journey. Our journey with autism. Where people hate how we try to help our kids. Where professionals label us with vicious names. Where rags like the Dallas Morning News cut us to shreds without sending a reporter to gather a fact. 

People with autism deserve far better. Sick children deserve respect, as do their families. The Dallas Morning News should apologize for this article.  And now, for a taste of reality. Thank you to Ashlyn for her eloquence. 

I am a little embarrassed to share this as I started just an exercise to process my anger/grief but wanted to share as I think some of you will relate to it.

Something highly unusual in the world of autism happened to my son last week. He received a diagnosis of autoimmune encephalitis from a prominent and highly respected mainstream pediatric neurologist. Moreover, she stated this to be the cause of his autistic behaviors. Seven years after his devastating regression into autism, we finally have answers as well as a thoughtful treatment plan. We’ve moved out of the realm of “just autism” and into a realm where his suffering is being taken seriously.

Autoimmune encephalitis is a serious medical condition in which the immune system attacks the brain, impairing function. What makes my son's diagnosis last week so unusual is not the fact that autoimmune encephalitis is a rare cause of autism, but that it is rarely diagnosed in this population. Similarly, it is rare for autism to ever be attributed to a medical condition by a mainstream physician. To say autism has any conclusive medical underpinning is practically heresy.

Like most families, when my son was diagnosed with autism, we were told the only proven treatment was Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) therapy. Of course, there was no known cause, and positively no cure. Most certainly, there was no medical treatment for autism, unless we took pleasure in throwing handfuls of cash into the wind and slathering our son in snake oil.

To disagree with this aloud in any setting other than our own bedroom was tantamount to throwing ourselves to hungry wolves. Being naive and determined to improve my son's quality of life, I threw myself to the wolves again and again and again. I knew in my heart that something was medically wrong with my son, so I sought medical help in all the predictable places. First from the gastroenterologist, who proclaimed my son's constant diarrhea to be no problem at all. "Toddler diarrhea" he called it. No need to worry mom, but please, for the love of all things holy, let that child eat gluten and drink milk lest he feel left out at birthday parties. I informed him that since my son did nothing but bang his head continuously on days he drank milk that the likelihood of him being invited to any birthday party at all while consuming dairy was slim to none. "Introduce it again in three months," he said.

Protect Your Religious Exemption Rights: Call Congress Today

Autism action networkUPDATE:  

Good news. Rep. Joseph Kennedy (D-MA-4) has generously requested a meeting with representatives of the Autism Action Network to discuss his House Resolution, H. R. 5272, the "Do No Harm Act." In a letter received yesterday Rep. Kennedy wrote, "I would welcome the opportunity to meet with you and discuss your legal analysis of the "Do No Harm Act" and how we might work together to advance research and treatments for autism while still protecting religious freedoms guaranteed to each American in the Constitution."

A meeting in his district is being scheduled.  We believe that language in the bill could be used to eliminate religious exemption rights from vaccine mandates. We do not believe the intention of the bill is to threaten vaccine exemptions rights, but legislation can have all kinds of unintended and unforeseen consequences. Our goal is to assure H. R. 5272 is modified so that there is no conceivable threat to rights to religious exemptions from vaccine mandates.

From our friends at Autism Action Network:

Please call Congress today

Protect your religious exemption rights

Religious exemptions from vaccine mandates in all states are under threat from legislation in Your_rightsCongress that would severely curtail Americans' ability to exercise our First Amendment rights. House Resolution H. R. 5272, introduced by Rep. Joseph P. Kennedy (D-MA-4), seeks to limit The Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993, purportedly to prevent discrimination against one person by another person for religious reasons. But the bill is so broadly drawn that any exercise of religious belief that conflicts with any federal policy, whether based on law, regulation or executive order, could be considered discrimination and therefore illegal. Kennedy's bill in effect repeals the idea that, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof."

Here's what you can do, first if you are an Autism Action Network subscriber, or support the work we do, please help us to fight this bill by making a donation to our annual fundraising drive here:

Getting Real at the Real Truth Health Conference

Jabbed WilcoxBy Brett Wilcox

I’m the author of We’re Monsanto: Feeding the World, Lie After Lie, Books I and Book II. Last February, Steve Shore invited me to speak about the problems with the GMO industry at The Real Truth About Health Conference in September. I told Steve I was currently researching the topic of corruption in the vaccine industry and I asked him, “If I promise to have a book written and published before the conference, would he consider letting me speak on the subject of vaccines?” Steve said yes.

Seven grueling months later and three days before the conference started, I published Jabbed: How the Vaccine Industry, Medical Establishment and Government Stick It to You and Your Family.

My first day at the conference I joined a panel discussion with Dan Olmsted, Mark Blaxill and Del Bigtree. Their names and works grace the pages of Jabbed, so meeting them in person was an honor.

The next evening, Del sat on a panel with five other people, all experts in various aspects of pharmaceutical industry corruption. One after another, every person said essentially the same thing: Big Pharma is broken in a big way. Del, last in the line-up, said in essence, “I agree with everything that’s been said and it’s all true for the vaccine industry.”

Boom! The energy on the panel shifted. Most of the faces hardened. Most of the backs stiffened. How  Del Bigtreedare this Bigtree guy speak evil against the miracle of vaccines? Who is he anyway? Everyone knows that vaccines don’t cause autism. There was this doctor back in the 90s that made that claim. He’s a fraud. Everybody knows that.

It would be wrong to say that Del made some of the other “experts” on the panel look foolish. They managed that feat well enough on their own. Del, on the other hand, rocked the panel. The audience loved him, just as thousands of other audiences have come to love him.

Allen Francis M.D. was seated next to Del. Dr. Francis was the Chair of the DSM-IV Task Force. The Allen FrancesDSM, or Diagnostic and Statistical Manual, is the so-called Bible for psychiatrists, psychologists and other mental health professionals. Allen was so disgusted with the latest edition of the DSM—the DSM 5—that he authored a book titled, Saving Normal: An Insider’s Revolt Against Out-of-Control Psychiatric Diagnosis, DSM-5, Big Pharma, and the Medicalization of Ordinary Life. The premise of the book is that modern psychiatry has pathologized normal behaviors and in so doing has trivialized the practice of psychiatry. In the world of psychiatry, Dr. Francis is hot stuff. And yet, the venerable doctor proved to possess no knowledge about vaccines and vaccine science beyond what the average consumer of mainstream media possesses.

VAXXED The Movie Pulled from Aussie Film Festival

Banned AussieNote: Vaxxed was told to take a walkabout.....  From the Bendigo Advertiser:

A controversial anti-vaccination documentary has been withdrawn from the Castlemaine Local and International Film Festival.

The festival committee says it faced a firestorm of abuse after announcing Vaxxed would be included in the October event, and last night issued a statement because some members felt “personally and professionally threatened’’.

“This is unacceptable,’’ the statement read. “It is with the utmost regret therefore that CLIFF is compelled, for clear reasons of personal and public safety, to withdraw the screening from the CLIFF 2016 programme,” the statement said.

Vaxxed explores allegations of a cover-up by the US Centre for Disease Control and a link between the Measles, Mumps and Rubella vaccine and autism.

The decision to include the film in the festival drew widespread criticism, including calls from Australia’s peak health association for it to be pulled from the program.

Public Health Association of Australia chief executive Michael Moore said the decision showed a lack of understanding of the impact the film could have on parents.  Read more here.


Novavax $1.5 Billion Dollar Loss

Health Choice SquareThank you to Health Choice for sharing this article on their Facebook page.  From CNBC, the business channel.

More than $1.5 billion vanished from vaccine developer Novavax's market value almost instantaneously Thursday afternoon after a late-stage trial of its vaccine for a common respiratory virus failed.

It's the worst nightmare of investors in biotech, but also a serious blow to public health. The company was trying to tackle a problem that's thwarted medicine for more than half a century.

RSV — or respiratory syncytial virus — is usually not a big deal for healthy people, but for two populations, babies and older adults, it can be extremely serious. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, RSV is the most common cause of pneumonia and another respiratory condition called bronchiolitis in babies under 1 year old in the U.S.

Each year it hospitalizes more than 50,000 kids under age 5, and leads to 14,000 deaths among adults older than 65. It was that older population in which Novavax ran its 11,000-patient study. Its vaccine failed to provide any protection, sending the stock down more than 80 percent.

"This has been a 30- or 40-year effort to get to where Novavax is, in terms of a candidate that goes into phase 3 trials," said Dr. Mark Feinberg, CEO of the International AIDS Vaccine Initiative, and former chief public health and science officer for Merck Vaccines, in a telephone interview Friday. "There's been a longstanding desire to have an RSV vaccine."

Vaccine Herd Immunity Questions in The Hill Opinion Piece

The hillImagine our surprise to see the following article on The Hill website? We imagined it would have been pulled by now.  

If only half of America is properly vaccinated, where are the epidemics?

By Gretchen DuBeau

In 2014, an outbreak of whooping cough (pertussis) broke out in the San Diego area. Of the 621 individuals who were infected, nearly all of them were completely up to date on all preventive vaccinations. If vaccines are given to protect from disease, how could this happen?

San Diego public health official Dr. Wilma Wooten argued that the cause was related to a decrease in the protection offered by vaccines after the first year. This answer is most revealing, in that it speaks to the actual efficacy of vaccines. It also shows that the concept of herd immunity is largely myth—and completely misunderstood.

The theory of herd immunity states that when a critical mass of the population (usually stipulated at 95%) is vaccinated against a disease, the possibility of outbreaks is eliminated. This is the main argument that is used to shame parents who wish to refuse certain vaccinations for their children: by not vaccinating, they put the health of the “herd” at risk.

Levi Quackenboss is Done Playing Nice: How To File a Complaint Against Your Pediatrician Who Vaccinated Your Child

Keep-calm-and-pay-the-piperNote: There's as saying, "Don't reinvent the wheel." We're not. Levi Quackenboss has written a sharp post about a strategy many of you have probably seen recently on Facebook that puts and end to passivity vis a vis vaccine injury.  It's below.

If someone runs over your child, do you sue the car company or the driver? 

Where did you go for your child's vaccinations? For the majority of us, we went to American Academy of Pediatrics board certified doctors. They have operated unscathed throughout the autism epidemic as far as I can see. My girls are 21, 20 and 16. We've moved several times and had six or seven pediatric practices over the years.  All but one have been the pediatric version of puppy  mills.  In and out. 8 minutes per child on the schedule.  Not one - ONE - doctor has had a single piece of usable advice for me regarding my daughters' autism beyond, "Early intervention and school." Every single one has looked to me, Mom, for information, answers on how to treat my kids.  They have been kind but clueless and bereft of curiosity.  Imagine a Mom walking into a practive with three (!) daughters with autism and the doctor is blase.  No questions. No, "Holy cow, lady, what's going on here?" 

My kids have not had eye exams.  "They can't tell us what they see."  My kids have not had hearing tests. "They can't tell us if they can hear the sound. She won't put on the headphones."  The lack of medical treatment has been negligent.  And then there's vaccination.  It's time for pediatricians to feel the outcome of their work. I'll let Levi explain below. 

Also on FB yesterday, a link to a graphic that shows pediatricians' sales bonuses for vaccinating patients.    Find it at The Wellness and Equality site: How Much Money Do Pediatricians Really Make From Vaccines?How Much Money Do Pediatricians Really Make From Vaccines?

By Levi Quackenboss

We’ve seen it time and time again in the past four years. People on our side try going about their business, living their lives. People on their side are giving handjobs to politicians and taking away our parenting rights. They’re always making offensive moves, pushing through new legislation each year, and we’re sitting around trying to predict how to respond to it.

California passed SB 277 and we filed a law suit a year later. Texas tried passing something like 13 vaccination laws in 2015 and we showed up and defeated every one. They started infiltrating our Florida and Texas public schools with flu shots and coercive letters and the Texans for Vaccine Choice sent cease and desist letters.

And now they’ve gone after Dr. Sears.

You know what? Screw that. I’m done playing nice. Done acting like this has been some kind of civil discussion for the past four years. In this last quarter of 2016 I’m going on the offensive, and I hope you join me because this is going to be fun.

None of this was my idea but there’s no need to name the guy who came up with this plan if you know him, so don’t go putting his name in the comments.

Here’s the plan: if you’ve got a kid who became autistic, allergic, epileptic, or diabetic after childhood vaccines, you’ve got to file a complaint against that doctor. Gone are the days of being told it was a coincidence. No more will we quietly find a like-minded physician and transfer care. Today is the day to take the first step to standing up and saying, “What happened to my child was unacceptable, and it’s time they answer for it.”

It’s not going to be difficult and I’ll hold your hand through it. Let’s do it together. Four easy steps.

The first thing is to order your child’s medical records.  You are entitled to ALL records under HIPAA. Handwritten notes, vaccine records, everything. Your (hopefully former) doctor’s office has the right to charge you a reasonable fee for copying the records, so be prepared to pay up to $20 or $30 for the service. They’ll probably send you a credit card authorization form first, or you can leave a check if you go to the office in person to make the request. If you call, they might ask you to email them a written request, so be prepared to jump through a couple of hoops, no big deal. Just play along.

CDC Wants to Expand Power to Eliminate Measles

CdcpoliticsBy Barbara Loe Fisher, Cofounder of the National Vaccine Information Center

I remember the day in 2007, when I was standing in front of a Maryland country courthouse videotaping interviews with mothers and fathers lined up with children, who had been thrown out of school for failing to show proof they had gotten chickenpox and hepatitis B shots.  State public health officials were threatening the parents with fines and jail time and suddenly, as we were talking, men in uniforms with guns and dogs emerged from the courthouse and headed toward us. In the pit of my stomach was the sickening feeling that people in countries throughout history have felt when the exercise of freedom of thought, speech and conscience is met with a demonstration of police power wielded by agents of the State.

Today, the American people are challenged, as they have never been before, to confront the expansion of government authority over our bodies and the bodies of our children, specifically the exercise of police power to take us into custody and isolate us without our consent whenever public health officials believe we are sick or could become sick. At stake is the preservation of human rights and cultural values that have been part of America since the Declaration of Independence and Bill of Rights defined civil liberties two centuries ago.

Are public health officials getting ready to apprehend and quarantine you or your child if they believe you are, or could become, infected with measles or any other communicable disease they decide is a threat to the public health?

Are they enlisting airline and other public transportation personnel to help them conduct a dragnet that will be easy for you to get caught up in when you travel? 

Once you are detained, can they hold you for 72 hours against your will until you agree to be vaccinated or they declare you are no longer a threat?

Is this for real or not?  You be the judge.

 CDC Moves to Amend Public Health Service Act

During the last days of summer, while we were vacationing, shopping for school supplies or, in the case of Virginia families, while we were busy pleading with legislators to protect the medical and religious vaccine exemptions in state vaccine law, public health officials at the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) were quietly publishing a very long Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) in the August 15, 2016 Federal Register to amend federal public health law.  The part of the Public Health Service Act they want to strengthen is the part that gives them power under the US Constitution  to restrict the freedom of a person entering the U.S. or traveling between states if they believe the person is infected or could become infected with certain kinds of communicable diseases. 

You only have until Oct. 14, 2016 to make a public comment to the CDC and contact your legislators in Congress, so please take this seriously because what the CDC is proposing applies to all Americans who travel outside the country or between states, especially on commercial airlines. In the future, it could extend to any form of transportation when you cross state lines, including by bus, train or car.

Involves States With Police Powers

This Notice of Proposed Rule Making – or NPRM - involves the participation of federally funded state health departments and state facilities, too, because the majority of police power to detain, isolate and quarantine citizens belongs to the states. Many state legislatures, which have legal authority to pass laws controlling communicable diseases within state borders, voted to give public health officials expanded police powers after Sept. 11, 2001 by adopting the Model State Emergency Health Powers Act (MSEHPA) and The Turning Point Model State Public Health Act  created at Georgetown University’s Center for Law and the Public’s Health and the CDC Collaborating Center Promoting Health through Law.

Levi Quackenboss on the Topic of Dr. Bob Sears

DrRobSears064NOTE: Thank you to Levi Quackenboss for this succinct look at the treatment of a nationally known pediatrician named Dr. Bob Sears.   The post-SB277 world (the California law that forbids all non-medical vaccine exemptions and now, seems to have put the doctors who use their medical knowledge and discretion to grant medical exemptions) is like macular degeneration is to eyesight.

By Levi Quackenboss

Two and a half years ago a mother brought her two-year-old son to see Dr. Bob Sears at his office for the first time, where she described to Dr. Sears that her child’s renal and digestive systems went into shock after his first round of vaccines at two months old, and that the baby was limp as a ragdoll for 24 hours after his next round one month later. We don’t know what records she shared with Dr. Sears then or later, but we know that Dr. Sears wrote a letter of exemption from vaccination for the boy. As almost all general practitioner doctor records are, the notes in this case were brief and didn’t include a detailed narrative.

The boy was seen four more times in the next year for severe constipation and severe ear infections, and we all know what that sounds like. At some point the mother brought the child in two weeks after his father allegedly hit his son on the head with a hammer, so I’m guessing either the father is a piece of trash that beats up on a kid, or the mom is a piece of trash who makes up allegations against a spouse she doesn’t like. By my reading of the complaint, Dr. Sears did make a Child Protective Services referral that was closed. Clearly, there was some drama up in these parents’ lives.

Flying in the face of their own testimony on SB 277, on September 2nd the California Medical Board filed an accusation against Dr. Sears regarding this child he’d written a vaccine exemption for. Click that link to download the complaint.

The board’s first allegation wraps up by saying that Dr. Sears screwed up by not getting a history of the vaccines the boy had in the past, as well as the reactions that occurred from those vaccines. We don’t know whether the mother brought in a shot card that wasn’t copied into the Sears file, and we don’t know if her previous doctor refused to document the vaccine reactions, as we all know happens all the time.

Weston A. Price Foundation: The Most Important Decision Parents Will Ever Make: Whether or Not to Vaccinate Their Child

Weston A PriceFrom the Weston A. Price Foundation site:

Although the subject of vaccinations is not the major focus of WAPF (which is nutrition), it is a subject that fits well into our mission statement of nontoxic therapies.

We are hearing some strong words about the current “vaccination wars”—the push to make vaccinations mandatory in many states. One critic called vaccinations “biochemical warfare against a largely unsuspecting public, particularly children, disguised as disease prevention by means of Mickey Mouse science.”

Said another observer: “We are struggling against one of the most dangerous, diabolical and powerful cults in the US; that is, ‘science-based’ and ‘evidence-based medicine’ within the Church of Scientism. Undoubtedly when future historians scour what remains of the news, computer files and texts from the early 21st century’s Vaccine Age (assuming anything of humanity remains), they will identify a delusional global dictator (Bill Gates) and the cult’s preeminent false Profit (Paul Offit) as the principle harbingers of vaccine barbarism. Certainly by then a new paradigm, which fully comprehends the advances in epigenetics and the functions of the epigenome, biological systems theories and biophysics will have informed our future ancestors that vaccination, as practiced during the primitive 20th and 21st centuries, was a medical abomination.”

More strong words: “From its inception vaccination has been fraught with no science, fraud, corruption, and big government money. Injecting cow belly pus and horse hoof pus into babies to keep them from getting sick? Roll forward to today’s ingredients. How can this possibly be believed to be benign and ‘for the good of the whole?’ Sinister indeed.”  Read more here.


The Militarization of the CDC Zika, Money, Quarantine Power

'Are_you_a_mosquito_breeder'_-_NARA_-_513877By James Grundvig

In yet another end-round play by the Obama Administration, on Friday of Labor Day weekend where hot topics are dumped (Hillary Clinton’s email interview with the FBI) to go die before the next news cycle begins, it was announced that $300 million in “public health emergency” funding was earmarked for Japan’s Takeda to manufacture a new Zika vaccine.

No need for Congress to vote on the appropriation; an executive order did the trick. The Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA), which is helping the FDA screen donated blood against the Zika virus, was the agency from where President Obama found the $300 million in “emergency” funds to execute the backdoor deal. By offshoring the vaccine, there will be zero Congressional oversight, while no U.S. media outlet or lawyer group will be able to discover, by invoking FOIA requests, what will be injected into that rushed Zika vaccine made in Japan.

Zika Breakthrough Dies, because it’s Not a Vaccine

Even more perplexing than the CDC coup—who for a change didn’t want the publicity for their big move against the threat of Zika—was just five days earlier when Florida State University (FSU) announced a breakthrough to combat the mild African disease. FSU scientists had discovered that an existing (“cheap”), off-the-shelf remedy in a tapeworm antidote would suppress if not cure Zika in people who were sick enough to realize they have it. But outside second tier media outlets, the mainstream press didn’t want to cover the solution to Zika.

There is only one reason why the White House and the major media outlets didn’t trumpet the FSU discovery: It wasn’t the right solution. If it were a vaccine, it would have received the red carpet, playing on the nightly news stations, while being hailed a conquering hero. The same week, CNN chose to cover the 3 million bees that were liquidated by the Zika spraying in South Carolina; yet chose not to cover the FSU breakthrough.

What is up with that?

Vaccine Deep State Flexes its Quarantine Might

The Vaccine Deep State, is a Monolith that consists of all the major health agencies, from the WHO, CDC, NIH, FDA, IOM, and others, with the vaccine makers, together with the mainstream news—bought off by Big Pharma in the form of advertising revenue—have no interest in a Zika breakthrough, unless that solution begins with a ‘V’.

‘V’ for Vaccine.

This revelation became clear when, also buried in mid August, the CDC via the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) rolled out a proposed rule change. The 88-page document, Control of Communicable Diseases: Proposed Rule, (8-15-16, Vol. 81, No. 157, Federal Register), wants to grant the CDC full, super-constitutional powers in the event of a quarantine that only the health agency can call.

The CDC wants to be granted full authority over all Americans during the event of a disease outbreak that leads to a mass quarantine. The document, Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM), is “open for comment” from the general public until October 14, 2016. Lucky us.

Deftly trying to skirt around Congress—again—from dissecting the proposed rule changes, debating them, voting on them, and making some or all of them into law, such a flagrant power grab by the Centers of Disease Control (CDC) was designed to shrink the timeline for public discourse, while giving the appearance that the changes are minor, just simple adjustments from existing law on the agency’s limited authority in the event of a communicable disease emergency.

Published in mid August and buried again during the noise of the presidential election three weeks before Americans vote, the NPRM, if approved, would elevate the CDC’s power to the Fourth military-intelligence agency in the United States, right behind the NSA, CIA, and the Department of Defense (DoD).

Such extraordinary powers would lead to a draconian abuse of U.S. citizens’ lives, livelihood, privacy, freedom, liberty, health, wellbeing, among other countless, unintended consequences and lesser indignities.

The rule changes are designed to divide and conquer groups, lovers, friends, and families, from husband and wife, brother and sister, to parents and guardians from their children.

In short, the CDC will take full authorship of your life.

Military “Apprehension” Powers

From the NPRM, on privacy and surveillance, it states: “When an apprehension occurs, the individual is not free to leave or discontinue his/her discussion with an HHS/CDC public health or quarantine officer.” (NPRM, pg. 10).

“The Secretary’s authority to allow for the apprehension, examination, detention, and conditional release of individuals is limited to those communicable diseases specified in an Executive Order of the President.” (NPRM, pg. 5)

“Those communicable diseases, as of this NPRM include:

“These quarantinable communicable diseases currently include cholera, diphtheria, infectious tuberculosis (TB), plague, smallpox, yellow fever, and viral hemorrhagic fevers (such as Marburg, Ebola, Lassa fever, and Crimean-Congo).” (NPRM, pg. 5).

Vaccines: Elimination Mandatory!

AofA Op EdNOTE: We encourage you to share your thoughts on Laura's point of view in the comments and to write your own opinion piece and submit it to us for review.  Do you think no one should ever be allowed to vaccinate, or that everyone should always vaccinate, or do you fall somewhere in between?  Send to Olmsted.Dan@gmail.com.  

By Laura Hayes

Why are vaccines a legally permitted medical option? They shouldn’t be.

In a country whose citizens pay trillions of dollars annually to fund government regulatory agencies charged with protecting the public and policing multiple industries, including the pharmaceutical industry, vaccines should be long gone. It is past time to mandate their demise.

Vaccines are medical procedures that never should have been approved. Here’s why:

  • Not one vaccine has ever been tested according to the scientific gold standard, that of a double-blind, placebo-controlled study. Yes, you read that correctly, not one.

  • The myriad combinations in which vaccines are administered have never been tested, either. For an infant at a “catch up” appointment, meaning they missed a “well-baby” appointment at which vaccines would have been administered, that can mean receiving up to 13 vaccines containing 13 different diseases, at once, injected via 8 separate needles. That is the equivalent of taking up to 13 medications at once whose interactions have never been studied. To make matters even more serious, the number 13 does not include the many other ingredients that accompany and worsen the effects of being injected with 13 diseases, such as mercury, aluminum, formaldehyde, anti-freeze, phenol, MSG, polysorbate 80, Triton X-100 detergent, food proteins, animal viruses and retroviruses, fetal tissue from aborted human babies, and more. The number 13 also does not include ingredients that are not required to be listed on the label, but which are permitted under the cover of “trade secrets”. Undisclosed ingredients being injected into our children? Unacceptable, unethical, and terribly dangerous. Ask yourself, would you want your baby contracting multiple illnesses, up to 13, at once? Would you want your baby contracting multiple illnesses at once while also being poisoned at the same time? If you are following the CDC’s recommended schedule, you are allowing that.

  • Many vaccines contain mercury in the form of thimerosal. Thimerosal was patented in 1928, and has been used ever since, despite it being tested on humans only once, in 1929…a test in which all 22 subjects died within 2 days of receiving thimerosal. Mercury is a known toxin and neurotoxin, with no safe amount for a human. It can kill when applied externally. With vaccines, it is injected internally. Claims that mercury has been removed from vaccines given to children are false.

Levi Quackenboss on San Antonio DA Nico LaHood

KnightThanks to Levi for letting us share this post.

I’ve thought for two days about writing or not writing this post because I wasn’t sure I had anything to add to the conversation about Nico Lahood standing up against vaccine-induced autism.

If you haven’t heard the national news yet, the elected District Attorney in Bexar County (San Antonio) Texas, contacted the Vaxxed team to share the story of his then-18-month old son regressing into autism after vaccination, along with photos of the debilitating eczema his first child suffered through.  His last two children are unvaccinated, as it tends to go in these situations.

Obviously, I decided to write.

Nico is a friend of mine, though he doesn’t know I write this blog. I haven’t seen him on a daily basis in many years, but we used to talk all the time. I laugh at the articles that refer to him as the “controversial Texas DA” as if he was already skating on thin ice before standing up and becoming the new face of the American dad that isn’t taking any shit from Merck.

Let me set the record straight on Nico Lahood: he is beloved in San Antonio.

Nico gives exactly zero fucks about what his actions might do at the polls, and not just because his job is set until 2018. As a Democrat, he unseated a 16-year Republican District Attorney in an election where voters were casting straight-Republican tickets. His opponent was the only Republican in the county to lose her job. Democrats who had better things to do that day left their homes to go stand in line and vote for him, when they ordinarily would have skipped it. That is how much he is loved. When he became DA it was probably a pay cut compared to the success he had in private practice.

He first ran for DA in 2010 at the age of  37, which is ridiculously young, but not unheard of. During his first attempt, the sitting DA released his criminal records that he’d filed to have sealed, which were from 1994 when he was arrested for selling 200 (now they’re reporting it as 300) pills of ecstasy to an undercover cop at the strip club he worked at. I don’t know what you were up to in 1994 but I sure am glad there aren’t records of what I was up to. Nico was given a deferred sentence, completed his probation, and the case against him for selling a drug once patented by Merck was dismissed.

So what did Nico do when the DA released his records? He made a commercial about it. He ran a political ad admitting the entire thing. That’s how many fucks he gives. He knows he’d made a youthful mistake but more than that, he knew the current corrupt DA needed to get the hell out of that office and that he was the guy to make that happen.

Nico narrowly lost in 2010 so he came right back at the DA in 2014 and knocked her out. He was endorsed by Eva Longoria and Tim Duncan. When the incumbent refused to debate him, he held his own interview of her using an empty chair because that lady never showed up for anything.  Read more here.


Vaxxed Viewer Remains Staunch

OopsLast week, we ran a post about a Vaxxed Q&A Video where a woman questioned Dr. Andrew Wakefield's integrity and credibility, unaware that she was speaking directly to Dr. Andrew Wakefield himself. He responded with more grace than would have most of us, I believe. We'll chalk that up to his British upbringing. We received a comment on that post that we run below for your edification.

Well, I was the person who brought the lawyer to the Austin Vaxxed movie (8/23)! She is my sister-in-law by marriage. She was visiting Austin for a few days with her daughter and I took the rare opportunity to “kidnap” them, take them to lunch and then to the afternoon showing. I was well aware of her stance on vaccines but thought she’d appreciate having more knowledge and possibly sway her opinion. Boy, was I wrong!

Temple Grandin in the News and A New Biography

Temple grandin bookTemple Grandin is speaking at the U of New Mexico. This article is from the Albuquerque Journal.  Take note, a new biography of Grandin is about to debut from Skyhorse Publishing.   Titled, "Voice for the Voiceless" by Annette Wood.  You can order a copy now.

LAS CRUCES – Temple Grandin, the best-selling author, world-renowned autism spokesman and consultant to the livestock industry on animal behavior, will speak at several events Thursday and Friday at New Mexico State University.

Grandin is a world leader in livestock handling facility design. Almost half of the cattle processing facilities in North America include a special feature she designed. She has developed animal welfare guidelines used widely throughout the meat industry, and her research regarding grazing-animal behavior has helped producers reduce stress during handling.

Grandin was diagnosed with autism at a young age, but used the disability — which she said causes her to be a “visual thinker” — to revolutionize an industry and raise global awareness about autism.

She is best-known for studying the behavior of cattle, how they react to ranchers, movements, objects and light. Grandin designed adapted curved corrals, intended to reduce stress, panic and injury in animals being led to slaughter.  Read more here.

 



 


Religion and Conscience: Vaccine Rights

Human rightsNote: We invite you to visit the NVIC site regularly for updates on the current state of vaccine rights and issues across the country.  Here is a blog entry titled:   Religion and Conscience are Intertwined.

By Marco Caceres

People view and practice religion in different ways. I have always tended to see religion more as a journey of growth in spiritual wisdom—of being open to all possibilities for experiencing the creative power of the universe and learning from the teachings of sages, mystics and prophets (both past and present). I have sensed that the journey has been guided by my conscience—that inner still small voice that has often been said to be the highest authority.

Mahatma Gandhi once said, “There is a higher court than courts of justice and that is the court of conscience. It supercedes all other courts.”1 

In one of his many sermons, 19th century Church of Scotland minister Robert Herbert Story described conscience as the “compass we must steer by.”2 He said that even if it is not pointing due north, “we cannot help it: as long as we believe it to be true, and have no means of checking it, we can be trusted to it.”2

Obey your conscience. Be true to yourself and to God’s voice in you, first and before all else. You might mistake the teaching of Scripture: you could not, if in earnest about it, mistake the teaching of the living voice of God within.2 

The relationship between religion and conscience is closely intertwined. However, I had never previously stopped to reflect just how much until faced with the possibility of losing my religious freedoms as it relates to something as deeply personal as bodily integrity. Spurred on and financed by the pharmaceutical industry, the unceasing lobbying efforts within state legislatures in the United States to eliminate religious exemptions to vaccination and the resultant pushback by American families defending their religious freedoms, has put into clear perspective what is at stake here.  Read more here.

New From Skyhorse Publishing: Temple Grandin A Voice for the Voiceless by Annette Wood

Temple grandin bookAnnette 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.


"Eminence Based" Medicine versus Evidence Based

E v eThanks to Laura Hayes for the heads up on this fascinating article on a term I  had never heard; "Eminence-baed" medicine.  Kim

Published in MedPageToday, by Larry Husten

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...

No Ruling in SB277 Hearing

Banned kids
As of yesterday, there is no ruling in the SB277 Hearing that took place yesterday.  From the San Diego Union Tribune:

No immediate ruling in school vaccination case Federal judge in San Diego on Friday heard arguments for and against suspending new state law

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....


Preliminary Injunction Hearing on SB 277 in San Diego Federal Court on Friday, August 12th

E4All
UPDATE:  Josh Coleman is LiveBlogging at FB Live:  Josh Coleman is live blogging this: https://m.facebook.com/VaccineCorruptionToday/

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.

WHERE: Courtroom 13A, 333West Broadway, San Diego, CA 92101

Once Vaxxed But Not Shy? Washington Post Article Spurs Debate.

Caution"He beat me and I went to the hospital, But I know he loves me. I'll be home tomorrow."

"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."

"It's just one drink. I can stop at anytime."

"A vaccine made my baby stop breathing. But I still believe in vaccination."

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...

Rewriting the Legal History of Autism

Rewriting_265x265By Louis Conte and Wayne Rohde

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.”

UNANSWERED QUESTIONS

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.”

Introductory Comments for VaXxed Screening in Roseville, CA

VaxxedBy Laura Hayes

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.

Dear Vaccine Proponents....A Letter from Vaccine Choice Canada

Syringe Pen Writing
Dear Vaccine Proponents

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.

If They Start the Shots Early Enough……

Early often
By Robin McLean

....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?

How the Failed MMR Vaccine Has Quarantined a Detention Center As Measles Overshadows Autism

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.

According to the Montana Department of Health’s Infographic on measles, a state that hasn’t had a single measles case since 1990, one person with measles can spread the virus to eighteen more people.

2016 Measles Montana

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.

From www.thinkprogress.org, immigration reporter Esther Yu-Hsi Lee opened her article (7-11-16) as if the U.S. faced a repeat of the 2014 Ebola pandemic:

“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.

Levi Quackenboss On The Epidemic Of Coincidence Disorder

Coinkidink
Thanks as ever to Levi Quackenboss for this Monday morning zingRead 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.

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;

Adult Immunization Rates are Targeted through Standing Orders

Vax for Adults
By Mary Romaniec

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?

Breitbart Reports: Parents Sue to Stop SB277

Goodbye CAExcerpted 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.

Dirty Deeds Often Require Dirty People: Book Review of Master Manipulator by James Ottar Grundvig

Master Manipulator COVERNOTE: 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.

Vaxxed's Del Bigtree: You Have Been Heard! Video

VaxxedEditor'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



On Defending the Religious Vaccine Exemption as We Celebrate Our Freedom

American Freedom
From the National Vaccine Information Center.  Freedom.

By Barbara Loe Fisher


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.

Levi Quackenboss on SB277 Lawsuit

Freedom SB277Excerpted 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.

March Against Monsanto Founder Tami Canal with Del Bigtree of VaXxed

Del at Chaffetz
NOTE: Thanks to attendee Levi Quackenboss for blogging about this meeting at the Quackenboss site:

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.

Skyhorse Publishing Presents Revolutionary Grandparents

Revolutionary Grandparents 9781510705388We'd like to the Thinking Moms for sharing this blog post by Sandi Marcus and the new book from Skyhorse Publishing. 

From Amazon:

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.

Great Father's Day gift for the GrandDad in your child's life.  Order here.

By Sandi Marcus

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.

Six Lethal Sins of CDC A Toxic Legacy of Lies: Part 3 Autism Numbers

JOG 3 1
Note: Part 2 and Part 1.

By James O. Grundvig

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.”[1]

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.”[2]

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”.

Justin Kanew Interviews Mary Holland & Louis Conte on "Get It Got It Good"

Get it got it good
By Justin Kanew

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:

 

Episode 3 is embedded above, but it's also live on iTunes here: https://goo.gl/nXkFPI

And here's the direct link.

On the next and last episode (coming soon) I'll talk to MIT biologist Dr. Stephanie Seneff. 

Look forward to your comments and your thoughts on all of it.
