Did the CDC Censor Vaxxed? Or Did the CDC’s Proxies Do It for them? Columbia University’s Dilemma

Report 5

Please read Reports 1, 2, 3 and 4 here.

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?

Six Lethal Sins of CDC A Toxic Legacy of Lies Part 2: VACCINES

Grundvig part 2By James O. Grundvig 

Read Part 1 Six Lethal Sins of CSC A Toxic Legacy of Lies here.

2. VACCINES

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.[1] 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).[2]

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.[3] 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.”[4] 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.”[5]

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.[6]

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.

Hep C The New Silent Epidemic

Hep CNOTE: Thank you to Vaccinations News and Dr. Y for allowing us to excerpt this post. Read more at Vaccination News

By F. Edward Yazbak MD

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.

Featured were:

  • Four Clinical Reports
  • Two Commentaries
  • One Editorial
  • Four Policy Statements

http://www.ajmc.com/journals/issue/2016/2016-5-vol22-SP

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.

A Real Review of the Real Film, "Vaxxed"

VaxxedBy Shelley Tzorfas

"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

Grundvig 6 sin graphicBy James O. Grundvig

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.[1] 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:

  1. 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.
  1. 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.
  1. Autism Numbers: When the autism incidence rate exploded in 1990, instead of finding the cause, CDC, like the NFL, corrupted studies showing no association.

Sheila Lewis Ealey: Voice Of The Broken, Voice Of The Unbroken

“We’ll be fighting in the streets, with our children at our feet.”

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.”)

I remember learning that Robespierre feared laughter more than anything, and that when he heard it, he knew he was finished. I think, also, when the powerful begin to run from their own power bases, offices, behaving as prey, not predator, you don’t have to be Elias Canetti to understand it’s getting real....     Read more at Sheila Lewis Ealey: Voice Of The Broken, Voice Of The Unbroken


The Jabberwocky World of FDA When Frosted Cereal is Healthier than an Avocado

Tony FatHey, we all love Tony the Tiger, but to claim frosted cereal is healthier than say, an avocado?  That's not grrrrrrreat unless you are General Mills. 

The revolving door of government/industry is not new.  But do keep in mind that the head of the FDA is from Monsanto. And remember that the head of CDC went to Merck and is now the Executive Vice President (or perhaps the title is now goddess?) of the Global Vaccine Kingdom.  The door spins, the money flows.   This is why personal rights are so important. Trust your instinct, your gut.....

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.

–– ADVERTISEMENT –
 
The FDA said in a statement to The Wall Street Journal that in light of evolving nutrition research and other forthcoming food-labeling rules, “we believe now is an opportune time to re-evaluate regulations concerning nutrient content claims, generally, including the term ‘healthy.’”

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.

Dr. Richard Pan, sponsor of California vaccine exemption removal law SB277 ran away from VaXxed Del Bigtreeproducer 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.”







By the way, Dr. Pan is into the ban - check this out.  He's a Blockasaurus.... Have you been Doc Blocked?

CDC Whistleblower to Extend MMR Vaccine Fraud

30 piecesEditor's Note: Age of Autism has co-signed this statement with several other organizations:

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.

Dr. Brownstein Blogs Congress Should Be Shamed: The Vaccine Crises Continues

Brownstein_david_md_Iodine_thyroidExcerpted 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.

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.”

Subject: IAC List Serv in The Guardian article

Dr. Wexler,

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.

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

UN Mary
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

Mary Holland

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.

Voices on VaXxed: All the Heroes

VaxxedBy Dara Berger

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.

The Pro-Vax Injury Misogyny Campaign Meets Robert De Niro

DENiro therapistFrom the UK's DailyMail - rather a shocker!  But a delight to read.  It's a lot more difficult to disparage and embarrass and discount Robert DeNiro than a beautiful blonde female.  He throws a real monkeywrench into the misogynistic media plan.  KS


Why De Niro is backing the MMR doctor hounded out of Britain: Actor believes triple jab risks are being covered up by pharmaceutical giants after his son 'developed autism overnight' when he had vaccination 

  • Robert De Niro's 18-year-old son Elliot suffers from autism disorder
  • His Tribeca Film Festival in New York provoked controversy by featuring a new 'anti-vaccination' documentary called Vaxxed
  • Film star revealed that he and his wife believe their son developed autism overnight after receiving an unidentified vaccination jab 
  • British doctor Andrew Wakefield claimed he had found evidence the MMR triple vaccine caused irritable bowel syndrome and autism in children 

Robert De Niro is widely reckoned to be the world's trickiest celebrity to interview. He will sit looking morose and mumble monosyllabic answers. Any question about his private life will be met with the sort of thinly veiled menace he provides so perfectly in his film roles.

But there is one subject, as painfully private and sensitive as one can imagine, on which he has been more than happy to talk in recent days — about how his 18-year-old son, Elliot, suffers from autism.

Although the 72-year-old has previously hinted about raising a son with special needs with his wife, Grace Hightower, it wasn't until recently that he opened up, after his Tribeca Film Festival in New York provoked controversy by featuring a new 'anti-vaccination' documentary called Vaxxed.

In two interviews with NBC's Today show, De Niro, the festival's co-founder, explained why he had first asked for the film to be included but then said it would not be shown following protests...

John Rappoport: Dear Doctor, How to Avoid Blame for Causing Autism

Doctor Hand UpExcerpted from Jon Rappoport's blog. Thanks to MH for sharing it with us.

By Jon Rappoport

April 26, 2016

(To read about Jon’s mega-collection, Exit From The Matrix, click here.)

As the truth about horrendous vaccine-damage to babies emerges and spreads, doctors need advice on how to avoid blame. So this article is offered as a public service to the medical profession.

Dear Doctor, your best defense is: “I’m practicing proper medicine.” Always remember that. Don’t wobble. Don’t explain. Just keep saying it. It works. After all, you have decades of propaganda behind you. Make those lies operate for you. Stand on them. It’s your best strategy.

In your heart of hearts, you know you’re damaging the brains and nervous systems of many babies. But don’t give in. Just keep vaccinating them. Just keep the basic mantra going: “I’m practicing proper medicine.” Under no circumstances should you let conscience be your guide. That would put you in a world of trouble.

It’s useful, when necessary, when a baby is, say, on life support in intensive care after you vaccinated him/her, to accuse the parents. You assert the child is a victim of Shaken Baby Syndrome—and the unconscionable parents did the shaking. This puts them on the defensive, and potentially takes the case into the sinister arena of Child Protective Services, the agency that can remove a child from the home and place it in foster care as a ward of the State. The parents, who are already terrified because of what you did (vaccination), will be thrown into an even deeper vortex of fear. They will be less likely to speak out and blame you. Use your power.

Keep in mind that the parents can’t sue you or the vaccine manufacturer. Know you’re safe. The law mandates the only option: they go to the federal vaccine court, where they plead for compensation. That labyrinthine process could take years, during which time the parents will probably forget all about you. Feel safe and secure, because you are. Don’t get rattled. Move on.

If the word—you know the word—“autism” comes up, don’t give in to worry or fear. The Centers for Disease Control, essentially a PR front for the vaccine industry, has you well covered. They’ve slanted and cooked years and years of studies to show one and all that vaccines can’t cause autism. It’s a slam-dunk. You’re protected. Don’t argue. Don’t debate. Let the CDC back you up.

Do you see where I’m going, dear Doctor? You’re in a sweet spot. You’re not in trouble, so don’t make trouble. Bite your tongue if you have to, but don’t debate. Just keep vaccinating. Yes, you’re destroying many lives, but no one can prove it, because the CDC and other agencies control the meaning of “science.” If they say the Earth revolves around Mars, that’s science....

Duty to Warn Bad Science or Willful Ignorance at the CDC

Lighthouse failureDuty to Warn Bad Science? or Willful Ignorance at the CDC:
And Why it has Lost its Trustworthiness When it Comes to Vaccine Policy

 By Gary G. Kohls, MD

Despite the fact that I am a physician, I have long been suspicious of the influence of giant multinational medical corporate cartels that are best referred to as Big Pharma, Big Vaccine, Big Medicine, Big Insurance, Big Food, Big Agrichemical, etc. Most clear-headed observers of these industries (that meet the psychiatrist’s DSM definition of sociopathic entities) are justifiably concerned about the inordinate influence that they have over the mainstream media and most of our political parties, legislators and presidents.

These mega-corporations and their cunning multibillionaire owners (the 0.01%) are the paymasters of every politician and political party that thinks that they has to have millions of dollars in their campaign coffers in order to keep their political offices safe. Those paymasters, as is the case with all their other “investments”, expect a handsome long-term return on those investments. Those entities with excess luxury wealth are very serious when it comes to their money. That is why they can be so ruthless when it comes to getting what they want from their stable of politicians, lawyers and the publishers and editors of their newspapers and their television and radio stations.

My consciousness concerning the innate corruption in the vaccine industry was sharply raised when my father (in the totally bogus 1976 Swine Flu that NEVER materialized!) had the peripheral nerves to his hands poisoned by the neurotoxic mercury-containing Swine Flu vaccine. The small muscles that had been previously innervated by both of his radial nerves became permanently paralyzed. Within days the poisonous heavy metal in that vaccine caused a classical Guillain-Barre syndrome that he never recovered from. He never did regain his mastery of what was his lifelong love - fishing

In a now frequently repeated scenario (the latest ones being the Ebola virus “pandemic” and now the equally  bogus Zika virus/microcephaly epidemic), the vaccine industry’s lobbyists are successfully capitalizing on what is very likely an iatrogenic illness (physician or medicine-caused disease).  And the public health agencies (all indoctrinated into believing the med school myths that all vaccines are safe and effective) are  scaring the wits out of us with plausible, but unproven theories about another vaccine-preventable epidemic.

Then, with the constant stream of propaganda from the once respected Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (the CDC) shaping the beliefs of an easily freaked-out populace, president and legislature, the vaccine industry presents a blueprint for fast-tracking through the regulatory process a new, potentially dangerous, and likely untested vaccine that will be easily marketed to blindly pro-vaccine clinics and blindly pro-vaccine physicians to be given to every scared-out-of-their-wits patient in hearing range whose insurance will cover the unaffordable costs.

This is American capitalism, folks, and what is happening before our eyes is the old, tried and true strategy to siphon off a few billion dollars from us taxpayers and at the same time jack up the stock price of the corporation.

In retrospect, by the way, my father’s pro-vaccine 1970s internist was not unlike the current crop of doctors. He had been indoctrinated in med school with the notion that all vaccines are safe and effective, despite the fact that vaccines have never had to go through the rigorous science that most drugs have to do to get approval. He was totally in the dark about what had caused the Guillain-Barre syndrome (he said it was the virus).

EcoWatch: Robert Kennedy, Jr: "Is the Autism Epidemic Real?"

RFK headshotApril 6, 2016, EcoWatch: Robert Kennedy, Jr: "Is the Autism Epidemic Real?"

A threadworm tactic employed for a decade by Big Pharma and the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and their allies to combat the scientific evidence that the autism explosion is a manmade epidemic of recent origins has been to hint that there is no autism epidemic at all. Public health agencies maintain a disciplined refusal to call the disease’s sudden explosion an “epidemic” or “crisis” and actively discourage scientific investigations of environmental triggers.

“You will never ever hear CDC characterizing the autism explosion as a crisis or an epidemic,” Dr. Brian Hooker, Simpson University epidemiologist, said. “So long as there is no epidemic, no one needs to look for the environmental trigger.”

All this accounts for the giddy excitement among Big Pharma funded media outlets at the debut of Steve Silberman’s book, NeuroTribes: The Legacy of Autism and the Future of Neurodiversity. Parroting Pharma’s old propaganda canard, Silberman suggests that autism is a wholly genetic psychological ailment that has always been with us in prevalences similar to those found today. Silberman argues that we never noticed autism until recently, because affected persons with the illness were formerly stashed in mental institutions or misdiagnosed.

Improving Day-to-Day Organization for People with Autism Through the Power of Visuals

DropTask - A Visual Productivity  Organization App
Thanks to the folks at DropTask for sharing this info and special reader offer (see below):

Visuals, whether it’s icons, logos, symbols, colors or shapes, play a very significant role in the world around us.  They help draw our attention to certain objects, areas or even bits of text, and above all else, visuals have the ability to convey information with great speed – especially in comparison to text which challenges our brain to ‘decode’ before we can understand. Did you know that it’s said to take 1/4 of a second for our brain to process visual cues? It’s undeniable, therefore, that visuals go much further than just their aesthetic appeal.

For those with Autism Spectrum Disorder, visual supports can be of help with seeing and understanding as they provide an opportunity to communicate with less difficulty. Encouraging communication and development can have a great effect on self-esteem as well as independence, and there are a number of great tools and learning aids available for people of all ages and abilities. One visual tool that aids with organization and day to day productivity, is DropTask.

Let's end this miserable AAM (which I'm not going to spell out) with this comment by John Stone on Mary Holland at the UN. Why? Because it inspires me! "This is a great and historic moment. A miracle to see it happen and a miracle to see it so warmly applauded. One thing which must be said is that also in order to have informed consent you not only have to not have legal and financial coercion, it is also necessary to allow free discussion about the safety and effectiveness of the products - a discussion which is not properly allowed in almost any country at a popular level. If the products are so good, why are you not allowed to discuss them without the heavens falling in. I have commented recently - I think with historic accuracy - that when we had the GMC hearing against Wakefield and colleagues in the United Kingdom not a single mainstream outlet ever reported the defence of the three doctors (or any part of it), and this was less courtesy than would be accorded an international terrorist. In United States we have seen the heavy hand not only against Wakefield but against Jenny McCarthy an Katie Couric, and behind those good people the families with injured children. But running hate campaigns against those who speak up, or act with professional integrity is not acceptable. In the United Kingdom now investigating vaccine events or giving evidence in court would lead a doctor directly to General Medical Council star chamber. You may also see parents go to prison for Shaken Baby Syndrome in what are really vaccine related events. This is the reality in a country which has no vaccine mandates or sanctions. But it is wonderful to see Mary at a UN conference and the delegates cheering."

Teen births plummet: That's a good thing on its own, of course, but I will rerun my speculative comments from late last year: 

Is HPV vaccine bringing down the birth rate?

This idea was first proposed to me by an Australian vaccine safety advocate who was visiting the States. According to my notes from 2014:

“she said the teen birth rate in south australia took a dive in 2008, the year after the vaccine was introduced there. also something similar in europe. she said the vaccine might be killing off the eggs in the ovaries. something to this effect was pubbed in sept 2012 by deirdre little, she thinks in bmj or lancet.”

Checking today, I see a report from 2013:

(LifeSiteNews.com) - The British Medical Journal (BMJ) Case Reports journal has reported that a healthy 16-year-old Australian girl lost all ovarian function and went into menopause after being injected with the human papilloma virus (HPV) vaccine Gardasil.

“Dr. Deirdre Little, the Australian physician who treated the girl, provides solid evidence that Gardasil caused the destruction of the girl's fertility.

“She also pointed out that Merck Pharmaceutical, the manufacturer of Gardasil, has no supporting information on the effects of the vaccine on ovaries, suggesting that Merck had either done no safety testing on Gardasil in relation to its effects on women's reproductive systems, or had suppressed the information.”

My notes from 2014 continue:

“Wonder if this could explain sharp drop in u.s.

press release -- “(Washington, DC)-The U.S. teen birth rate declined 8 percent in 2011, according to new data released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Center for Health Statistics. Since the recent peak in 1991, the teen birth rate has declined 49 percent and declined a full 25 percent between 2007 and 2011 alone. The overall national teen birth rate as well as rates for all age groups and all racial/ethnic groups are at historic lows.

"The continued decline in the nation's teen birth rate has been positively breathtaking and the credit for this remarkable national success story goes to teens themselves," said Sarah Brown, CEO of The National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy.”

My colleague Mark Blaxill noted to me then that “the 2007 to 2011 drop would correspond almost exactly with the introduction of Gardasil in late 2006.”

Brian Hooker updates the twisted Thompson saga (and what about the "isolated" cases, don't they still count?): Very recently, Mr. Richard Morgan, Esq., Dr. Thompson’s whistle blower attorney, stated that Dr. Thompson will be publishing a paper in May, 2016, where he will assert that the MMR vaccine is not linked to autism in African American males. Instead Dr. Thompson will state that socioeconomic factors alone in the African American community account for the original MMR-African American male “effect” (the effect that he is on record as stating the CDC purposefully hid). I have not been given access to Dr. Thompson’s reanalysis and therefore cannot comment regarding the forthcoming paper at this time. However, I am suspect of any analysis coming from the CDC due to the historic nature of the agency’s scientific misconduct and conflicts of interest specifically around any link between vaccines and autism.

Regardless of the content of Dr. Thompson’s reanalysis paper, these facts remain:

  • 1. CDC scientists colluded to cover up a relationship between the timing of the MMR vaccine and autism in African Americans that was first discovered in November of 2001. Rather than reporting the results to the public, all data regarding this relationship were destroyed at a secret meeting held some time in August/September of 2002. This fact has been affirmed via an affidavit given by Dr. Thompson to Rep. Bill Posey in September, 2014.
  • 2. Dr. Thompson attempted to warn the CDC Director at the time, Dr. Julie Gerberding, regarding this relationship, prior to the February 2004 Institute of Medicine meeting on vaccines and autism. Rather than allowing Dr. Thompson to present the information at this meeting, Dr. Gerberding replaced him as a speaker with Dr. Frank Destefano, current director of the CDC’s Immunization Safety Office, where he presented fraudulent results regarding the MMR vaccine and autism. Dr. Thompson was put on administrative leave and was threatened that he would be fired due to “insubordination.” 
  • 3. When Dr. Thompson attempted to leave the CDC later that same year, he was given a $24,000 retention bonus. Dr. Thompson’s impression of the timing of this bonus, in light of disciplinary actions taken against him earlier that year, is that CDC officials were “buying his silence” through controlling his actions as a CDC employee.
  • 4. Dr. Thompson has published two papers linking thimerosal exposure in infant vaccines to tics in boys (Thompson et al. 2007 and Barile et al. 2012). CDC fraudulently maintains on their website that “There is no evidence of harm caused by the low doses of thimerosal in vaccines, except for minor reactions like redness and swelling at the injection site.” (http://www.cdc.gov/vaccinesafety/concerns/thimerosal/). The tic result was also affirmed in the earlier CDC publication by Verstraeten et al. (2003) and the Andrews et al. (2004) publication. 
  • 5. CDC pressured Dr. Thompson to downplay the tic result of his analysis in his 2007 paper. He was instructed to deemphasize the tic result by the CDC’s Chief Science Officer, Dr. Tanja Popovic, by emphasizing that the “major finding of the study” was “there is NO associations (sic) of thimerosal exposure with the great majority of the outcomes.” Dr. Popovic also instructed Dr. Thompson to interpret any negative outcomes as “chance findings.”
  • 6. CDC also pressured Dr. Thompson to withhold publication of his 2012 paper which reported a relationship between thimerosal and tics. Dr. Ed Travathan, head of the CDC’s National Center for Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities, stated in an April 27, 2009 memo to him that the analysis was sound except for the tic results and that they should be omitted from the publication. Since the tic result was the only result that had a consistent negative relationship with thimerosal exposure, it seemed that Dr. Thompson’s superiors were specifically concerned that thimerosal’s safety and use not be questioned. As an epidemiologist, Dr. Thompson was justifiably concerned and critical of the CDC’s action to approve the paper for publication only after the CDC took the extraordinary step of adding an expert in tics to water down the paper to state, “This finding should be interpreted with caution due to limitations in the measurement of tics and the limited biological plausibility regarding a causal relationship.”

Dr. Brian Hooker Speaks Out on Developments Concerning CDC Whistleblower Dr. William Thompson

Pieces of silverNOTE:  From Jefferey Jaxen's blog:

The unexpected piece of information was conveyed by Dr. Brian Hooker during the Manhattan panel regarding recent developments concerning Dr. William Thompson — also known as the CDC whistleblower and focused on in the movie Vaxxed: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe. Dr. Hooker stated:

One of the things I asked Dr. Thompson to do in September 2014 was to leave the CDC and bring this all to light so he could come forward, go public, talk to congress, talk to the press directly — he choose not to. Dr. Thompson has been handled and will most likely submit a revised version of his analysis and try to absolve the MMR vaccine in early May 2016. This is typical of what we’ve seen at the CDC. The CDC analyzes data and when they see an effect they don’t like, they reanalyze data and the effect goes away. The CDC has done this historically from Agent Orange to Thimerosal and now to MMR vaccine. I did not want this to come but certainly anticipated that while he was in the CDC it would come. In exchange for what Dr. Thompson is doing — and believe this [info] is a little bit shaky — I believe he will get his own autism research foundation. And so there has been some very, very dubious activities that went on because he stayed in the CDC. He also got a major cash reward from the CDC for maintaining his employment he said, until he qualifies for retirement. But there are a lot of things that happened since the last conversation I had with Dr. Thompson which was in September 2014. And I do want to warn you and I do want to anticipate this. But again, it’s the same thing we’ve heard and we’ve seen from an agency that’s been completely captured but the pharmaceutical industry. And it’s [CDC] there not to tell the truth but in order to manipulate the public. In order to do what they think the best thing to do is for society.


How To Win the Vaccine Credibility War

Spin a taleBy Ted Kuntz

  1. Take All the Credit for Success

Vaccine manufacturers and the medical industry have declared themselves fully responsible for the significant decline in mortality from infectious disease over the last century. When asked for evidence of vaccine effectiveness, vaccine proponents point to the decline of whooping cough, diphtheria, measles, mumps, polio and other “vaccine preventable” diseases. The fact that the mortality rates of these diseases declined up to 99% prior to the introduction of the vaccine is not considered relevant.

  1. Tell a Good Story

The vaccine story is a great story! No question. “Vaccines are a miracle of modern medicine.” “Vaccines have saved millions of lives.” “The benefits of vaccination far outweigh the risks.” The problem with this story is it is not supported by clinical or biological evidence. But when you have a good story, you don’t need evidence.

  1. All for One and One for All

The medical industry and the media refer to vaccines as if they are one uniform product. No differentiation is made between a vaccine produced by Merck versus a vaccine produced by GlaxoSmithKline. A vaccine for chicken pox is no different than a vaccine for measles. A vaccine given to a sixteen year old is no different than one for a newborn. When you question the safety and effectiveness of one vaccine, you question the safety and the effectiveness of all vaccines. Individual consideration is not permitted.

  1. Under Report Adverse Effects

No one likes to hear about adverse effects. Besides, they happen to someone else’s children. While the medical industry claims to keep accurate data on the number of incidences of vaccine injury, there is no clear definition of vaccine injury and no mandatory requirement to report adverse events following vaccinations. It’s up to each individual health practitioner to self-report that what they did caused harm to their patient. It’s also important to keep any data on vaccine injuries hidden from the prying eyes of the public. Better yet, deny that vaccines cause injury. If you have to admit to vaccine injury, pick a good round number like “one in a million”.

  1. Hear No Evil. See No Evil. Speak No Evil.

It’s important not to discuss any concerns about vaccine safety or effectiveness. Tell the mainstream media that providing balanced reporting on vaccines is irresponsible. Even when CDC scientists take whistleblower status, claiming fraud and the destruction of data, there is nothing worth reporting. Besides, your advertising revenues might be at risk if you report on vaccine injuries or government fraud.

  1. Claim Consensus

Everyone knows vaccines are safe and effective. The science is settled. No long-term clinical trials are needed to substantiate these claims. It would be unethical to conduct clinical research with an unvaccinated population. Even discussing vaccine safety is irresponsible. Asking questions about vaccine effectiveness is anti-science. Everyone knows there is no vaccine for stupid people.

  1. Let the Money Speak for Itself

Money is the best criteria to decide the outcome of research. Money should decide which studies get published. Money should decide what research will be done and what questions will be asked. Money should decide what editors allow on their programs and in their newspapers. Money should decide which politicians will be elected. Money should decide what is in “the greater good”. And who has more money that the pharmaceutical industry.

BEWARE of “Standard of Care”

Being the mother of vaccine-injured children teaches you many important lessons, with perhaps the main lesson being to question everything, research thoroughly, and make your own decisions. Listen to and trust your own maternal instincts. Don’t be coerced, harassed, or forced into doing anything you are not completely comfortable with or don’t want.  Learn to speak up and stand your ground firmly…your children are counting on you…and you will be the one to live with the consequences for each and every parenting decision you make.  So make the time to take the time to decide carefully, very carefully.

Rule #1: Question EVERYTHING

Rule #2: Research THOROUGHLY (including, and especially, from non-industry and non-governmental sources…seek sources that don’t profit from that which you are researching)

Rule #3: Make your OWN decisions, don’t be swayed by someone just because they are wearing a white coat (as a matter of fact, learn to be extra leery of those in white coats)

Let’s begin with prenatal “standard of care” procedures that need to be questioned, researched, and carefully considered prior to accepting:

  • Ultrasounds are now performed on virtually every pregnant woman in the U.S. Remembering back to my first pregnancy, my doctor told me I had ovarian cysts after my first ultrasound, and he began ordering weekly (!) ultrasounds for me. At the time, my insurance did not cover ultrasounds (they were $800 a pop, mind you). When I finally disclosed this to the receptionist, wondering how many more of these expensive procedures I would need, she was shocked that I’d been paying out of pocket the whole time. She looked uncomfortable when I told her that. Quite magically, the next week, my cysts were declared gone, no more ultrasounds for cysts needed!  I have since come to find out that the year that occurred was the year they were testing new ultrasound machines that were many times “stronger”. Were my baby and I experimental test subjects, without knowing, and without informed consent?  I do not know, but I most certainly wonder. Dr. Kelly Brogan, among others, has written about the universal use of ultrasound during pregnancy,  so perhaps begin your research here.

  • Vaccines are now recommended by the CDC for pregnant women, including the Tdap and influenza vaccines (that’s a total of 4 vaccines). Those of you who have read previous articles of mine know that no safety, efficacy, or necessity claims can be made for any vaccine, much less the myriad combinations in which they are haphazardly given, because the needed studies to make such claims have never been done. The same goes for vaccines given during pregnancy.  Barbara Loe Fisher of NVIC has written an excellent article regarding the lack of safety data that exist despite the CDC recommending vaccines for pregnant women. Reading her article is an excellent place to begin one’s research.

  • Gestational diabetes screening includes drinking a nasty beverage that includes genetically-modified ingredients, chemicals, food dyes, and other ingredients that have no business inside the human body, much less inside a developing fetus. Does every woman need to be screened for GD? Are there other ways to screen without the use of a toxic beverage being consumed by both mom and fetus? I remember drinking that foul-tasting beverage 3 times over, once during each pregnancy, and thinking, this can’t possibly be good for me or my baby. Correct I was. A quick Google search will lead you to many helpful articles, but here is one to get you started.

Moving on to decisions expectant parents will need to make:

  • Home birth, birthing center, or hospital…research and consider all of your options carefully. Remember that hospitals are not the safe havens you might envision them to be. Hospital errors are now the third leading cause of death in America. Read about that fact here.

  • Midwife, doula, doctor, combination thereof, or none of the above…again, research and consider all of your options carefully. Interview potential candidates until you find one who shares your philosophies about pregnancy, childbirth, and newborn care.

  • Catheterization during labor and delivery. This can lead to difficulty urinating after the catheter is removed, bladder and kidney infections, subsequent prescriptions for antibiotics due to infections, pain and discomfort for the mother when post-catheterization infection occurs, exposure to antibiotics for baby if mom is breastfeeding…and all for an unnecessary birthing intervention. See this informative article to learn more. I know of instances where this invasive medical procedure was recommended for mothers during non-problematic labors…one accepted, one declined. The one who accepted went on to have a serious kidney infection which lasted for many weeks, requiring multiple rounds of antibiotics, while she was breastfeeding.

  • Electronic fetal monitoring will almost certainly be used at the hospital, unless you say no. This is an ultrasound procedure, which requires that the laboring mother be lying down confined to a bed. As with prenatal ultrasounds, safety, necessity, and potential drawbacks need to be considered. Here is an article which includes information that electronic fetal monitoring is excruciatingly loud for your baby in utero (that would be the same for prenatal ultrasounds, too).

  • The use of pitocin at any point, including to deliver the placenta. Research this ahead of time. Decide whether or not that is a drug you will accept, and if so, under what circumstances.

Did the CDC Censor Vaxxed? (They Didn't Censor Robert DeNiro)

 

Vaxxed Error
Read Part 2 and Part 1 here.

By Wayne Rohde and Louis Conte

It’s been one heck of an Autism Awareness Month.

Robert De Niro appeared on the Today Show Wednesday morning to talk about the Tribeca Film Festival. When the discussion turned to the controversy over the decision to pull the film, Vaxxed: From Cover-up to Catastrophe, De Niro said that he felt that the film should be seen. And then he said much more.

Almost immediately, pro-vaccine not-for-profit groups such as Voices for Vaccines tweeted a post telling main stream media outlet NBC News to get their act together and not to allow these interviews to be conducted.

V4V screenshot

To which Wayne Rohde responded with a question.

There was no return response.

“What’s going on?” sort of sounds like “How can this be happening?”

As the tweet reveals, the expectation of network compliance with not discussing autism and vaccines is fairly obvious. NBC was not doing what was expected of them. One can only wonder what the rest of the day was like down at NBC News.

As one would expect, main stream media outlets unleashed a torrent a “De Niro is wrong”. One that struck me as ironic was this one by Maggie Fox of Today called “De Niro Says ‘Find the Truth’ But Scientists Already did”.

What Ms. Fox doesn’t represent in her article is that scientists at the CDC did find the truth.

Then they threw the truth in the garbage.

In August of 2014, one of the scientists and co-authors of the 2004 Pediatrics study, Dr. William Thompson, stepped forward in and released this statement through his whistle-blower attorney:

CDC data showed that the MMR vaccine was associated with autism in the original data of a study ultimately published by the CDC Vaccine Safety Division staff in 2004 in the journal Pediatrics. However, that data was manipulated to bury the connection between the vaccine and autism in African American children. Some of the data regarding a subset of children with “Isolated Autism” – children with autism who didn’t have other health complications - was so damning that the researchers got together and dumped it in the garbage. Congressman William Posey reported this on the floor of Congress in 2015.

Ms. Fox states that the “independent Institute of Medicine (IOM)” reviewed the science and determined that science has proven that vaccines don’t cause autism.

According to documents released by William Thompson and the statements he made to Dr. Brian Hooker in four legally taped conversations, the IOM was lied to. The IOM reviewed and considered the fraudulent science that the CDC Vaccine Safety Division gave them in coming to their decision about autism and the MMR vaccine. The CDC even removed Thompson from presenting the study to the IOM to make sure that the conflicted scientist didn’t reveal what he knew. 

Vaxxed reveals a CDC where data is manipulated and destroyed, where employees who try to do the right thing are ostracized and where science is a tool of policy interests.

Even worse, Vaxed alleges that the CDC scientists obstructed justice in a federal judicial proceeding.

At the time the study was published, the Secretary of Health and Human Services was being sued by thousands of families alleging that the MMR vaccine caused autism in the Omnibus Autism Proceedings (OAP) held in the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program. The federal department that runs the CDC was on the hook for billions of dollars in compensation awards to victims of vaccine injuries. When the Special Masters dismissed thousands of cases in the OAP, their rulings relied heavily on the same fraudulent study.

What Dr. William Thompson is alleging is nothing short of a cover-up of a criminal conspiracy that may have resulted in a shocking amount of harm to children and the nation. If true, none of the science produced by the CDC can be trusted.

That is what Vaxxed is about.

This is why Robert De Niro feels everyone should see Vaxxed and also see the film

Trace Amounts, which is about the mercury based vaccines preservative, Thimerosal. De Niro feels that people should see these films and discuss them openly.

Robert De Niro spoke about what his wife feels happened to his son. Like so many other families, De Niro’s son is reported to have regressed after vaccination. Thousands of families report these horrible regressions.

Science has avoided studying parental reports of vaccine induced regression, typically claiming that parents simply missed early signs of autism in their children. Instead, the scientific community has conducted epidemiological studies.

Despite what the press often reports, there has never been a study of health outcomes comparing vaccinated and un-vaccinated people.

Best Of: Dr. Bernard Rimland Implicated Vaccines in Autism Over a Decade Ago

Bernie RimlandNOTE:  Since it's April, and the VAXXED documentary is slowly but surely seeing the light of day, we're running this best of from Dr. Rimland, founder of the Autism Society of America and the Autism Research Institute and a pioneer in changing the paradigm of autism from blaming the mother to a medical model.

###

On July 14, 2003, Dr. Bernard Rimland, the man who changed the paradigm of autism, from the archaic and psychiatric, refrigerator families to instead children, who regressed into a medically treatable neurobehavioral illness -- wrote these words:

July 14, 2003

STATEMENT BY BERNARD RIMLAND, PH.D.
Director, Autism Research Institute
Editor, Autism Research Review International
Founder, Autism Society of America

THE AUTISM EPIDEMIC IS REAL, AND EXCESSIVE VACCINATIONS ARE THE CAUSE

The vaccine manufacturers, the Center for Disease Control, the FDA, and the various medical associations have failed miserably in their duty to protect our children. Rather than acknowledge their role in  creating the immense, catastrophic rise in autism, these organizations have resorted to denial and obfuscation. They stand to lose their credibility, and billions of dollars in liability suits will soon reach the courts.

As a full-time professional research scientist for 50 years, and as a researcher in the field of autism for 45 years, I have been shocked and chagrined by the medical establishment's ongoing efforts to trivialize the solid and compelling evidence that faulty vaccination policies are the root cause of the epidemic. There are many consistent  lines of evidence implicating vaccines, and no even marginally plausible alternative hypotheses.

As the number of childhood vaccines has increased 700%, from 3 in the `70s to 22 in 2000, the prevalence of autism has also showed a parallel increase of 700%.

Let’s Go Find Unvaccinated Children with Autism

Blank-milk-carton-psd32965By Dr. William H. Gaunt

This is going to be very easy.  The CDC tells us that 1 in every 68 children in the U.S. has autism and a recent government survey pegged the incidence of autism even higher at 1 in 45 children.  We are told repeatedly that autism is genetic and vaccines don’t cause autism.  All we need to do is go find groups of unvaccinated children and count those with autism.  

We can start with groups whose parents choose no vaccines for their children.  There are such groups in every major metropolitan area and scattered around the country in small towns.  They frequently have difficulty finding a doctor who will work with them and respect their decision.  There are a few doctors out there who will work with parents who choose to avoid vaccines altogether or selectively vaccinate their children.   Homefirst Medical Services provides medical care for families who choose to have home births and avoid vaccines in the Chicago area.   They have treated around 35,000 of these children over the years.  Homefirst’s medical director, the late Dr. Mayer Eisenstein, said in an interview a few years ago “… I don’t think we have a single case of autism in children delivered by us who never received vaccines.”

MMR Vaccination and Autism Revisited in 2016

Vax newsExcerpted from Vaccination News. Read the full post and bookmark the site here.

By F Edward Yazbak MD

Many parents have suspected that their previously normal children regressed and were later diagnosed with autism following Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR) vaccination.

The Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) a joint effort of HHS, the Department of Justice and the US Court of Federal Claims (CFC) has been operational since October 1988 in order to compensate vaccine injured individuals.

The first MMR related autism case was filed with VICP in 2001.

When the number of cases exploded in a short time, the Chief Special Master of the Vaccine Court created the Omnibus Autism Proceeding to adjudicate the expected flood of cases (5,600 by January 2011.)   http://pediatrics.aappublications.org/content/127/Supplement_1/S74

A PubMed search revealed the listing of multiple publications on MMR vaccination and autism after 1998. Those reports, many by European authors, were mostly published in British medical journals.

Experts from The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have always denied any causal relationship between the triple live virus vaccine and autistic regression, fearing that any mention of such relationship might lead to lower vaccination rates and the return of measles to the United States, after it had been eradicated.  

F. DeStefano MD, MPH authored or co-authored most of the CDC publications on the subject. In 2001, the year the first MMR –Autism case was filed with VICP, Dr. DeStefano and R T Chen MD published "Autism and measles-mumps-rubella vaccination: controversy laid to rest?”, casually stating that “the weight of the available epidemiological and related evidence does not support a causal association between MMR vaccine, or any other vaccine or vaccine constituent, and autism.”

Spot the Astroturf

AstroturfBy The Canary Party

CDC pays for astroturf support for the vaccine program. We have long suspected it, and occasionally we get to see behind the curtain. Such was the case last month when Megan Media posted a call for "mommy bloggers" to run paid stories supporting the vaccine program beginning April 11th.

The link has since been removed, but we took a screen shot to preserve the job posting.

We sent the following email to Megan Media for further comment, but no response has been forthcoming as of yet:

Megan Media,

Your campaign to promote the CDC's vaccine program by paying "mommy bloggers" for stories was made public last two weeks ago.

I am looking for some details on the campaign.

First, is this campaign sponsored by CDC, HHS, or any vaccine maker, patent holder, or associated org?

Who is the client on this vaccine promotion campain?

Why was the choice made to launch this during Autism Awareness Month?

Are the "mommy bloggers" required to disclose that they have been paid for their stories?

We will be publishing on this on the morning of April 11th, so apologies for sending the request after business hours on Friday, but I hope you can respond before then.

If not, I can always update the story if you are able to respond on Monday.

Thank you,
Ginger Taylor
Mother of a vaccine injured child

We encourage our readers to save the image, and post it in the comments section of any blog posts supporting the vaccine program for the next month, with the question:

"Have you been paid by Megan Media, the CDC, or any other parties for your vaccine stories?"

Did the CDC Censor VaXxed? Report 2

Vaxxed ErrorBy Louis Conte and Wayne Rohde

Has the CDC censored VaXxed at another film festival? The Houston Worldfest Film Festival has announced that they too have been forced to remove VaXxed from their festival’s line up.

To answer this question, we must review what we reported earlier this week.

On Tuesday, we asked if the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention – an agency of the United States Government – directed the Immunization Action Coalition (IAC), a not-for-profit organization to activate a panel of scientists, known as the Listserv, to pressure Robert De Niro and the Tribeca Film Festival to remove VaXxed: From Cover-up to Catastrophe from the film festival’s 2016 line up.

We asked if the CDC sought to have VaXxed censored because the film detailed research fraud within the CDC Vaccine Safety Division on the 2004 MMR study published in Pediatrics. This study by Frank DeStefano, Tanya Karapurkar Bhasin, William W. Thompson, Marshalyn Yeargin-Allsopp and Coleen Boyle is the vital research that the government claims shows no link between the MMR vaccine and autism.

On 3/25/16, Robert De Niro indicated that he and the Tribeca Film Festival team decided to pull VaXxed because of pressure from the scientific community.

“My intent in screening this film was to provide an opportunity for conversation around an issue that is deeply personal to me and my family. But after reviewing it over the past few days with the Tribeca Film Festival team and others from the scientific community, we do not believe it contributes to or furthers the discussion I had hoped for.”

Statements made by Alison Singer in a 3/29/16 article in the Guardian are absolutely clear that the IAC supplied the pressure De Niro was feeling:

“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,” she said.

At the center of the network was a listserv group of more than 100 prominent individuals and science research bodies run out of the Immunization Action Coalition (IAC) based in St Paul, Minnesota. According to the Guardian article, 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.”

The Guardian states “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.”

While Wakefield directed it, VaXxed is not about the retraction of his 1998 Lancet article. VaXxed is about the disclosures of CDC scientist Dr. William Thompson – one of the co-authors of the 2004 Pediatrics MMR article - alleging that the agency manipulated and destroyed data which showed that the MMR vaccine is linked to autism in African-American male children and another subset of children that the authors described as Isolated Autism (autism without other co-morbid conditions).

While Wakefield’s controversial 1998 Lancet paper on gastrointestinal illness in several children with autism was a factor in the CDC decision to study the MMR vaccine, the pressing issue for the CDC was not the Wakefield controversy.

The pressing issue was that their boss was being sued.

The Secretary of Health and Human Services was facing billions of dollars in compensation claims from families filing thousands of petitions in the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP) in the Omnibus Autism Proceedings (OAP) alleging MMR vaccine induced autism.

The 2004 research that Thompson says was fraudulent was critical to the families with claims in the OAP. VaXxed makes the point that the CDC’s fraud amounted to obstruction of justice of federal judicial proceedings.

William Thompson issued this statement through his attorney Rick Morgan on 8/27/14 about the 2004 MMR study:. Morgan-Verkamp is a well-regarded legal firm specializing in Whistleblower litigation.

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

Omitting statistically significant information and altering the design of the study to bury the elevated risk of autism for African-American boys and those with “isolated autism” due to the MMR vaccine is research fraud.

VaXxed details information Thompson gave to Dr. Brian Hooker, a scientist and father of a child with autism. VaXxed is constructed around excerpts of legally taped conversations between the two men where other serious allegations of misconduct within the CDC are disclosed.

In our first report we noted that Alison Singer, the Director of the Autism Science Foundation (ASF) and the apparent spokesperson for the IAC Listserv, is the mother of a child with autism and not a scientist. She held a leadership position at Autism Speaks before starting the ASF.

Dr. Paul Offit, who often acts a spokesman for vaccines, is on the ASF board. In other words, Offit is Singer’s boss.

VAXXED: A Review by Jim West

Vaxxed_documentary.jpg.CROP.original-originalAngelika Theater, NYC
Film Review: Vaxxed
 
This is an amazing, pro film, great technical, political, and aesthetic skills. A confidence builder for critics. It presents the clearly documented message of CDC corruption and militant arrogance. It describes pharmaceutical industry power. The film keeps its cool and does not go over the top.
 
The famous scientist Andrew Wakefield, director Del Bigtree, and film distributor Richard Castro were there. Also present, and very eloquent, was the biologist, Brian Hooker, whom the CDC put a lawyer on years ago to make it illegal for him to contact the CDC for data.
 
After the film, in the theater lobby, I talked to most of them in fair depth and handed out my card. Wakefield got my message and seemed upbeat about it, as my ultrasound scenario completely supports the vaccine message. It was a challenge getting through the groupies who were clustering up for Wakefield photos.
 
The film has been lambasted by the drug tabloid, The NY Times, claiming it was a Wakefield film (he has already been demonized by the mainstream), but the film topic is actually about the CDC whistleblower, William Thompson. (Here is my breakdown of The NY Times board of directors: )
 
I conversed with a guy who drove from Ohio to see the film. He had been listening to his wife for 20 years talking about vaccines, and he had been like, "yea, yea...". His wife said, "You are going to see this film!" He is now a complete convert to the vax-critical position.

Did the Centers For Disease Control – an agency of the United States Government – direct the Immunization Action Coalition (IAC), a not-for-profit organization to activate a panel of scientists, known as the Listserv, to pressure Robert Di Niro and the Tribeca Film Festival to remove VaXxed: From Cover-up to Catastrophe from the film festival’s 2016 line up?

Did the CDC seek to have VaXxed censored because the film details research fraud within the CDC Vaccine Safety Division to alter results of the foundational research used by the government to deny the link between the MMR Vaccine and autism?

On 3/25/16, Robert Di Niro indicated that he and the Tribeca Film Festival team decided to pull VaXxed because of pressure from the scientific community.

“My intent in screening this film was to provide an opportunity for conversation around an issue that is deeply personal to me and my family.

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.”

Having viewed VaXxed, the film is not about Andrew Wakefield or the retraction of his 1998 Lancet article describing a bowel syndrome in children with autism. While Wakefield directed it, VaXxed is about the disclosures of CDC scientist, Dr. William Thompson, alleging that the agency manipulated and destroyed data in the seminal research cited by the US government as proof that the MMR vaccine is not linked to autism. While Wakefield’s controversy was likely a factor in the CDC decision to study the MMR vaccine, a bigger factor was the filing of thousands of petitions in the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP) alleging MMR vaccine induced autism. In what would eventually become known as the Omnibus Autism Proceedings (OAP), the Secretary of Health and Human Services was facing billions of dollars in compensation claims.

The 2004 research that Thompson says was fraudulent, might have been critical to the families with claims in the OAP. VaXxed makes the point that the CDC’s fraud amounted to obstruction of justice.

William Thompson’s 8/27/14 statement on his concerns about his employer’s conduct in the 2004 MMR study is on the website of the attorneys he retained - Morgan-Verkamp (). Morgan-Verkamp is a well-regarded legal firm specializing in Whistleblower litigation.

“I regret that my coauthors and I omitted statistically significant information in our 2004 article published in the journal Pediatrics. The omitted data suggested that African American males who received the MMR vaccine before age 36 months were at increased risk for autism.

Omitting statistically significant information and altering the design of the study to bury the elevated risk of African-American boys developing autism due to the MMR vaccine is research fraud.

Fighting with Your Hands Tied: How Low Can the Mainstream Media Sink in the Vaccine Debate?

MudBy John Stone

For a year or two now I have more or less given up trying to comment on mainstream blogs - what with the harassment and the censorship I felt I ought to devote more of my time to other projects. But I have been back in the past few days given the disgraceful debacle over "Vaxxed". Below is an example of unacceptable comment to the UK's Guardian newspaper in 2016, made after several comments disappeared.

One of the notable features of the three year long hearing against Wakefield and colleagues was that at no point did any of the mainstream media report any of the defence - no one unless they were prepared to search wider on the internet would have any idea of what it was. It goes on. Below I put up a link to my own blog and it was deleted as infringing community rules, but there is no possible way it did that. We are having a discussion where all the counter argument is being deftly removed. If an international terrorist was on trial they would stand a much better chance of having their defence reported by the mainstream media than someone voicing mild concern about the safety of the vaccine program. The problem is that with these voices of concern systematically removed the program is destined to become ever more harmful because basic checks and balances have been eliminated.

This is something which apparently falls outside reasonable comment now.

“You Know Nothing About Autism, John Snow”

WeilerWe  excerpted this post by James Lyons Weiler.

By James Lyons Weiler, PhD

IN THE TELEVISION PRE-HISTORY FICTIONAL MINISERIES ‘GAME OF THRONES’, a female character named Ygritte is fond of telling her lover, a Night Watchman, who lives caught between two warring cultures, the expression “You know nothing, Jon Snow”.  She tells him this to remind him that he has no idea why the Wildings, a tribe of undead people, are attacking their peoples, and, as hint to the fact that in spite of their different origins as people, she loves him.

There is another Snow of merit who lived between cultures – a culture of science and a culture of stoic and unforgiving ignorance. This John Snow has an important lesson for our time.

In 1854’s, London Physician John Snow was confronted with a severe outbreak of cholera.  The prevailing view of the cause of the cholera at the time was the ‘miasma’ theory, in which ‘bad air’, or something called ‘vibrones’ which the medical community postulated caused the spread of the illness.

London’s Soho District at the time was typical of London neighborhoods in the 1850’s.  Most homes had cess pits under their homes for human waste, and if the waste production exceeded the soil’s capacity, it would he hauled away, for a fee, and dumped into the river Thames.

The good Dr. Snow, pictured to the right, was not satisfied by the miasma theory. As the cholera outbreak worsened, he began mapping cases and eventually recognized that most John_Snowcases were clustered near a water pump on Broad Street. His careful observations led him to conclude that whatever ‘cholera poison’, as he referred to it, was behind the outbreak, it was somehow connected to the water pump. This was before germ theory was established and pathogens such as bacteria and viruses were unknown to medicine.

A religious colleague, The Reverend Henry Whitehead, from St. Luke’s Church, was a believer of the miasma theory. As any good man of the church would so, he attempted to disprove theories, and when he turned his attention to Dr. Snow’s theory of that cholera was a water-born illness, somehow connected to human waste, he was turned away from the nondescript miasma theory by the evidence accumulated by Snow in his maps. He even accompanied Dr. Snow on a hunt for the connection between human waste and the water pump, and together they discovered a home that had a cess pit that drained to a old cess pit only a few feet away from the well at the Broad Street Pump. The homeowners routinely dumped diapers (nappies) into the cess pit under their home.

From the VAXXED websiteTo our dismay, we learned on March 26 about the Tribeca Film Festival's decision to reverse the official selection of Vaxxed: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe.

It is important to note that this is not an anti-vaccine movie as it is has been commonly portrayed in the media. Robert De Niro's original defense of the film happened Friday after a one-hour conversation between De Niro and and Bill Posey, the congressman who has interacted directly and at length with the CDC Whistleblower (Dr. William Thompson) and whose team has scrutinized the documents that strongly indicate fraud at the CDC. That is what this film is about.

It is our understanding that persons from an organization affiliated with the festival have made unspecified allegations against the film - claims that we were given no opportunity to challenge or redress. We were denied due process.

We have just witnessed yet another example of the power of corporate interests censoring free speech, art, and truth. Tribeca's action will not succeed in denying the world access to the truth behind the film Vaxxed.

We are grateful to the many thousands of people who have already mobilized including doctors, scientists, educators and the autistic community.

We will be pressing forward and sharing our plans in the very near future.

Adapting Colonel Jessup's courtroom speech from A Few Good Men to the autism and vaccine safety research cover up.

For the "Greater Good", CDC and their apologists apparently believe that with the autism rate at 1 in 45, vaccines saved 44 out of 45 kids from certain death from infectious disease. We want them on that wall, we need them on that wall -- and the public can't handle the truth. This is the myth.

Of course they are wrong, but the myth allows them to sleep at night.

CDC/Pharma: You want answers?

Parents/Pediatricians: I think I'm entitled to.

CDC/Pharma: *You want answers?*

Parents/Pediatricians: *I want the truth!*

CDC: *You can't handle the truth!*
[pauses]

CDC: Son, we live in a world that has infectious diseases, and those infectious disease have to be guarded by men with vaccines. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Lt. Weinburg? I have a greater responsibility than you could possibly fathom. You weep for The Vaccine Injured, and you curse CDC. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know. That The Vaccine Injured's death (or injury), while tragic, probably saved lives. And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives. You don't want the truth because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that wall (vaccinating against infectious disease), you need me on that wall (vaccinating against infectious disease). We use words like honor, code, loyalty. We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom ( from infectious disease) that I provide, and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather you just said thank you, and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a syringe, and stand a post. Either way, I don't give a damn what you think you are entitled to.

Parents/Pediatricians: “Did you rig the vaccine safety studies to get the preordained results you wanted for the Greater Good?”

CDC: I did the job I...

Parents/Pediatricians: *Did you rig the vaccine safety studies to get the preordained results you wanted for the Greater Good?*

CDC: You're Goddamn right we did!

An Open Letter to Bob De Niro!

Open LetterBy Louis Conte

Grace and I have a child with autism and we believe it is critical that all of the issues surrounding the causes of autism be openly discussed and examined. In the 15 years since the Tribeca Film Festival was founded, I have never asked for a film to be screened or gotten involved in the programming. However this is very personal to me and my family and I want there to be a discussion, which is why we will be screening VAXXED. I am not personally endorsing the film, nor am I anti-vaccination; I am only providing the opportunity for a conversation around the issue.”

Robert De Niro, March 25, 2016

“My intent in screening this film was to provide an opportunity for conversation around an issue that is deeply personal to me and my family. But after reviewing it over the past few days with the Tribeca Film Festival team and others from the scientific community, we do not believe it contributes to or furthers the discussion I had hoped for.

The Festival doesn't seek to avoid or shy away from controversy. However, we have concerns with certain things in this film that we feel prevent us from presenting it in the Festival program. We have decided to remove it from our schedule.”

Robert De Niro, March 26, 2016

Dear Mr. De Niro:

It occurred to me that I should write you a note about your decision to not screen Andrew Wakefield’s documentary Vaxxed: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe, at the Tribeca Film Festival on April 24th.

The media feeding frenzy you endured was typical for anyone with a certain degree of fame who ventures into questioning – or in your case – providing a venue for discussion of vaccine safety. What you experienced in the two days leading up to your decision to accept the censorship of Vaxxed is something that we in the autism community have seen and experienced for years.

Censorship and suppression of our rights to speak out about what happened to our children has been going on for a while now.

As the father of two sons with autism, I want you to know that I’ve never accepted it because I want my sons, who struggle with language, to know that you have to speak out even when finding the words isn’t easy.

Even when the words bring you criticism.

That those who oppose our views exerted enormous pressure on you and the Tribeca Film Festival team to pull Vaxxed from your line up is not shocking. That you brought in “others from the scientific community” to help you accept censorship is profoundly disturbing.

Frankly, many (but certainly not all) of the scientific community, particularly scientists with ties to the pharmaceutical industry or the Centers For Disease Control, have turned their backs on people with autism. These scientists will get up and leave the room if you talk about vaccine injuries.

Since when do we ask the scientific community about whether a film should be screened? Who were these scientists? Shouldn’t we all know which scientists were on the Tribeca Censorship Panel?

Vaxxed Axed from Tribeca Film Festival Under Enormous Pressure to Censor


Vaxxed
PATRICIA FINN, ESQ.,

NATIONAL VACCINE RIGHTS & INJURY ATTORNEY
 
This weekend the film Vaxxed “from Cover up to Catastrophe” was pulled from Tribeca Film festival by the festival organizers after being pressured to not show the movie because of its controversial content.  New York City's Health Commissioner Jane Zucker issued a statement in support of the film’s censorship stressing in her public announcement on Sunday that vaccines do not cause autism.  On behalf of the citizens of the City of New York represented by this firm and who disagree with Dr. Zucker, the undersigned respectfully requests the Health Commissioner provide the residents of this state with any credible studies, any evidence at all, showing autism cannot be vaccine induced.  Simply attacking the research of Andy Wakefield, and notably without more, is not a sufficient basis for the City's top health official to claim vaccines do not cause autism. 

Vaxxed supporters plan to premier the movie in New York City on April 24, 2016 as planned regardless of the censorship, and would like to put forth any evidence provided by Dr. Zucker to support the statement that vaccines are safe and do not cause autism, other than the same old establishment lame attack on Dr. Wakefield’s research findings and now his new movie.
 
 
Why is the Film Vaxed So Important and A Must See
 
In 2000, a group of doctors from Pharma and CDC got together at a conference in Simpsonwoods, a secluded retreat outside of Atlanta.  The conference was convened to discuss newly uncovered evidence showing a connection between vaccines and brain injury in children.  The transcripts of the Simpsonwoods conference shows comments being made by the CDC and Merck doctor-participants involving potential litigation that would result from their findings, and that it would be “problematic” for industry.  Those in attendance agreed before concluding the conference, not to tell the public about the evidence of vaccine induced brain injury they had uncovered at CDC and Merck, deciding to keep it to themselves and out of “less responsible hands.”
 
About the same time in 2000, the vaccine schedule for children in the United States was tripled, and also about the same time in 2000, the number of children with autism in the United States skyrocketed to 1 in 60 children.  Soon thereafter about 5000 parents filed petitions for compensation in the Vaccine Court, alleging vaccine induced autism and injuries in their children after they had been heavily vaccinated under the new schedule.  The facts of each of the 5000 cases were all highly similar.  The petitions alleged perfectly healthy children developed autism after being heavily vaccinated starting in about 2000, shortly after the CDC\Pharma doctor’s agreed to keep the evidence of harm they had uncovered a secret and out of “less responsible hands.”

Robert DeNiro on Tribeca Film Festival VAXXED Controversy: "Grace and I have a child with autism..."

http://www4.pictures.zimbio.com/pc/Robert+De+Niro+wife+Grace+Hightower+their+veGIXTqxTXdl.jpg

UPDATE 3/226: Looks like somebody got talking to Mr. DeNiro. The movie has been pulled from the Festival. We call that raging bullshit.

Managing Editor's Note:  Yes, media censors "He's TALKIN' TO YOU!"

As if I didn't already love actor Robert DeNiro, founder of The Tribeca Film Festival.  Now my heart breaks for him, as I know that we have shared the tough road of raising a child with autism.  Take a look at this photo from a family vacation. Feel familiar? Everyone focused on a child clearly old enough to board a dinghy safely.  Autism.  Below is an article just posted on The SLANTED.com about the unreal controversy swirling around the movie VAXXED at The prestigious Tribeca Film Festival.  DeNiro's quote sums up proper American discourse perfectly: 

“Grace and I have a child with autism and we believe it is critical that all of the issues surrounding the causes of autism be openly discussed and examined. In the 15 years since the Tribeca Film Festival was founded, I have never asked for a film to be screened or gotten involved in the programming. However this is very personal to me and my family and I want there to be a discussion, which is why we will be screening VAXXED. I am not personally endorsing the film, nor am I anti-vaccination; I am only providing the opportunity for a conversation around the issue.”

Thank you to Mr. DeNiro for helping us to have a voice.  KRS

By John Stewart in The SLANTED.com

When it was announced that “VAXXED” would be screening at the Tribeca Film Festival this year, it was met with some stern opposition.

The film was produced by Andrew Wakefield, who is one of the main opponents of mandatory vaccinations for children. The anti-vaccination movement picked up steam back in 1998 when Wakefield published findings that attributed the combination of measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccines to an increase in autism in young children.

Those findings were found later to be grossly incorrect, they were discredited and Wakefield was stripped of his medical license. Wakefield was found guilty of “abusing a position of trust as a medical practitioner,” and found guilty of “dishonesty” in his studies which ended his career as a medical doctor.

The film’s description states, “Digging into the long-debated link between autism and vaccines, Vaxxed: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe features revealing and emotional interviews with pharmaceutical insiders, doctors, politicians, parents, and one whistleblower to understand what’s behind the skyrocketing increase of autism diagnoses today.”

Wakefield’s official bio connected with the film at TFF reads, “Andrew Wakefield, MB.BS., is an academic gastroenterologist who practiced medicine at the Royal Free in the U.K. publishing over 140 scientific papers.” The bio continues, “In 1995, he was contacted by parents of autistic children with stomach issues; he learned that these conditions often occurred immediately following an MMR vaccine. In pursuit of this possible link, Dr. Wakefield led an initial study of twelve children with both stomach and developmental issues. The report, published in The Lancet, would catapult Wakefield into becoming one of the most controversial figures in the history of medicine.”

So when “Vaxxed: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe” hit TFF this year, you can imagine the outrage from groups that have been fighting the consequences of Wakefield’s work for the last decade.

Now a week following the reveal that VAXXED would be screened at the festival, Robert De Niro has issued a statement. De Niro, as many readers probably already know, is a co-founder of the Tribeca Film Festival.

Teaching Americans To Hate "Anti-Vaxxers"

This graphic was circulating on Facebook regarding politics and terrorism. Looks just like the playbook of the VID (vaccine injury denial) community. Once you have hatred, you can do all sorts of nasty things via the law, medicine, in the media. We've seen it for years. Let's keep changing ignorance to EDUCATION. Then hate will turn to logical analysis.

Protect Your Right To Choose Housing For Your Disabled Loved One!

VOR logoPlease respond!

March 16, 2016

Dear Friends and VOR Members,

We urge you to act immediately.

Protection and Advocacy Agencies (P & A) and the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) file mass actions with the purpose of closing Intermediate Care Facilities for Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities (ICFs/IID) in pursuit of an ideological agenda to serve all people with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (I/DD) in the community.

These actions are typically filed without consultation with the individuals’ guardians, who have consistently opposed such actions, despite the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Olmstead decision that compel the government to respect the right of choice. 

Please email your representative in the U.S. House of Representatives immediately and request that he or she contact the House Appropriations Committee by March 23, 2016 and ask the Committee to include language in two appropriations bills which will protect the rights of individuals with I/DD who require and choose an ICF/IID level of care.  

Taking action is easy.  Please click on the link below to be taken to a ready-to-send email to your U.S. House Representative.  You can edit it, if you wish, before sending.

Thank you for your attention to this important matter. 

Please feel free to forward this alert to others who would like to help.

Gratefully,

Does Malcolm Turnbull Support Censorship?

AustralianFlagExcerpted from NoCompulsoryVaccination.com

A very active and lively discussion has been taking place on the Prime Minister’s Facebook page regarding the No Jab, No Pay law.  I made several posts in response to Dr Patrick Stokes – a Senior Lecturer in Philosophy who supports censorship when it comes to vaccination as evidenced by his article on The Conversation entitled: No, You’re Not Entitled to Your Opinion.

Dr Stokes is an Australian academic who readily admits that he is not an authority on the this issue.  Furthermore, he openly states that he does not WANT to know about the science of vaccination, instead claiming that everyone should defer to doctors and health authorities because they are the only ones capable of understanding the subject. Please read his statement below:

Stokes

Is the PM Censoring Debate?

Getting back to the Prime Minister’s Facebook page, as I said, I was having a lively debate with Mr Stokes about the issue of vaccination. I prepared a comment in response to his repetition of the fact that he does not know anything about vaccination and does not believe the issue should be publicly debated. When I tried to post my response, however, I got a warning that there was a problem and I should try later. This was yesterday afternoon and I have tried 4 times now and each time, I get the same warning.

Since there are plenty of new comments on this page, including many casting aspersions on my honesty, integrity and intelligence, I can only assume that I have been blocked. Fair go, Malcolm or whoever you have delegated to moderate your page! Are you afraid that your wife’s profits at Prima BioMed (profits that jumped to AUD $5.5 million mere weeks after No Jab No Pay legislation was announced) might be affected if enough people start to question vaccination? Valid fear, that – but is that a reason to silence opponents of government policies? Do we live in a democracy or not, Mr Turnbull? Or are the Australian people no more than cash cows (cash vaccas, the origin of the word ‘vaccination’, appropriately enough?) to you and your government?

Levi Quackenboss: Use All The Western Medicine You Want

Dollar-sign-of-pillsExcerpted from Levi Quackenboss.  We hope you read his blog regularly....

“If you’re not going to vaccinate, don’t come to the hospital when your kid is sick.”

“If you’re not going to vaccinate, you shouldn’t get to use western medicine.”

“If you’re anti-big pharma you shouldn’t be able to buy insulin.”

“If you hate pharmaceutical companies so much you shouldn’t be allowed to buy an EpiPen for your kid.”

Let’s get one thing straight, knuckleheads.  If someone decides that it’s in the best interest of their child’s health, well-being, or right to life to forgo vaccination, they still get to do whatever the hell they want when it comes to treating disease, whether you like it or not.

Guess what, Einsteins? Antibiotics aren’t man-made.  They weren’t invented, they were discovered.  The very definition of antibiotic means it is a naturally occurring substance produced from microorganisms and fungi.  The synthetic crap is antimicrobials, not antibiotics.  Antibiotics are a lot closer to the natural medicine movement than your prescription for Zoloft or Xenical.

Besides that, penicillin was discovered in 1928.  The first smallpox vaccine that became the standard for vaccine production (freeze-dried with added peptones to reduce contamination and injected with a needle) didn’t come about until 20 years later when it was invented by Leslie Collier.  So the use of natural antibiotics predates the first “western medicine” vaccine by two decades.

Plus there’s the fact that a First Nation tribe in Canada has been using a powerful antibiotic clay found north of Vancouver to heal infections for thousands of years, and now “western medicine” is all on their jock to appropriate it.

March Together Support Your Preferred Organization on World Autism Day

There-are-far-better-things-ahead-than-any-we-leave-behind-cs-lewis-past-quote
We have an opportunity to show the powers that be in Washington that the autism community can show a united front.  The sum of the whole is greater and more powerful than the parts.  We can do this without compromising our positions.  The opportunity is called the Power of One March for Unity, sponsored by Unlocking Autism. This event is set up so that you can raise money for your preferred autism organization. See the website for details.

POWER OF ONE WEBSITE

The only requirement is that you walk next to each other with respect. 

Given our current political season, respect and decorum seem like quaint notions.  They aren't. 

Families are drowning in autism related problems.  Aging out and graduation from high school present monumental challenges.    We'll need help with employment, or lack thereof, housing, medical care, social inclusion, romantic life, police interaction, mental health, financial stability and assistance for aging parents who will be crushed by having to care for adult children anywhere on the spectrum.

Blue back  maleYou need to know that Autism Speaks, the autism organization with the most influence in Blue shirt back femaleWashington DC,  has refused to participate.  They've turned their back on unity, preferring their own blue lights -which frankly, do nothing but cast a gloomy pall of sadness. It's OK. They represent the status quo. And we all know that the status quo is woefully inadequate for actual people WITH autism and their families.


Autism Speaks Does Not Participate

On The Passing of Nancy Reagan

Nancy and Ronald ReaganBy Dara Berger

I learned yesterday on Facebook that Nancy Reagan died on Sunday.  Do I feel sad?  No.  The truth is I haven’t liked her for a very long time.  I hold her at least partly responsible for the health crisis of our children today.

The saying should now be “They all don’t walk and talk” and not the other way around.  Is there anybody out there who doesn’t know a family enveloped by autism?

I think you could live in a cave these days and still have an understanding that we have an epidemic of children whose lives or childhood’s have been decimated by autism.  

Now getting back to Nancy Reagan and the part she played in today’s epidemic.

Fact 1  Nancy Reagan hid her husbands Alzheimer’s illness from the country for years while he was guiding us and making some of the most important decisions for our children.

Fact 2 He signed a law into effect that stripped a parents right to sue a pharmaceutical company when their child got injured or died from a vaccine.

The CDC Atlanta Autism Study That No One Noticed

CdclogoBy F. Edward Yazbak MD

Amid all the furor surrounding Thompson no one noticed the publication by the CDC last year of a study showing the steady rise of autism spectrum disorders in Atlanta which once again places beyond reasonable doubt that the rise in autism is real and not an artifact. On the CDC’s own analysis autism had risen on its own door step by nearly four times among eight year olds between 1996 and 2010 to a rate of 1 in 65. Ed Yazbak reviews the paper.

By now everyone who cared to know has been or should have become well informed about a controversial 2004 CDC publication by DeStefano, Bhasin, Thompson, Yeargin-Allsopp and Boyle titled "Age at first measles-mumps-rubella vaccination in children with autism and school-matched control subjects: a population-based study in metropolitan Atlanta." [i] 

Facts and allegations related to that study are not the subject of this report. Only deserving a mention is the fact that one of the authors of the 2004 study is still the Director of the National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities (NCBDDD) [ii] and another is the Branch Chief, Developmental Disabilities Branch, NCBDDD[iii]. Neither has yet proposed a science-supported cause or causes of autism and both seem only certain that pediatric vaccines and their components are in no way responsible for autistic regression.

On April 29, 2015, another Atlanta Autism-related study titled Trends in the Prevalence of Autism Spectrum Disorder, Cerebral Palsy, Hearing Loss, Intellectual Disability, and Vision Impairment, Metropolitan Atlanta, 1991–2010” was published on PLOS One, an Open Access Journal.[iv] For reasons unknown, it was not extensively publicized and did not receive much attention.

The authors, Braun KVN, Christensen D, Doernberg N, Schieve L, Rice C, Wiggins L, Schendel D, and Yeargin-Allsopp M reported that they were all from of the “Developmental Disabilities Branch, National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Atlanta, Georgia, United States of America.” Of the group, only Dr. Yeargin-Allsopp had participated in the 2004 investigational study and co-authored its published report.

The authors’ participation in the latest study and publication was as follows: KVB, DC, ND and MYA “conceived and designed the experiments”,   KVB and DC “analyzed the data” and KVB, DC, ND, LS, CR, LW, DS and MYA “wrote the paper.”

It is not clear why it was decided to claim that Dianna Schendel PhD was still at the CDC in April 2015 when the PLOS study was published, when Arrhus University in Denmark had announced that she had been a University employee since 2013 and had “been appointed Professor with special responsibilities at the Department of Public Health and the National Centre for Register-based Research at Aarhus University” on 6/26/2014. [v]

In her recent Arrhus University CV, Dr. Schendel herself clearly stated that she had been employed at the “Developmental Disabilities Branch, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention” from 1993 to 2013.[vi]

The exchange of talent between the CDC and Arrhus University is well known and long standing. It was highlighted of course by the “Affaire Thorsen” that the CDC hierarchy has preferred to forget. Less inhibited and clearly more disturbed, Arrhus University issued a detailed recitation of what exactly happened in its very frank Statement regarding Dr. Poul Thorsen’s involvement in Aarhus University projects”. [vii]

According to the Office of Inspector General, HHS, Dr. Thorsen remains a wanted fugitive who allegedly diverted over $1 million of CDC grant money to his own personal bank account, who was indicted in April 2011 on 22 counts of Wire Fraud and Money Laundering, and who is presently in Denmark supposedly awaiting extradition to the United States.[viii]

Meanwhile Dr. Thorsen seems happily employed in addition to writing and publishing scientific papers, the latest in September 2015. [ix]

*****

The most recent Atlanta Study by Braun et al, the subject of this report, “examined the prevalence and characteristics of autism spectrum disorder (ASD), cerebral palsy (CP), hearing loss (HL), intellectual disability (ID), and vision impairment (VI) over a 15–20 year time period, with specific focus on concurrent changes in ASD and ID prevalence.”
