In Which Dr. Paul Offit Declines Vaxxed Invitation for Interview at NYU Sponsored Event

NOTE:   This is Dr. Paul Offit of Children's Hospital of Philadelphia having a bite to eat before he presented at Confronting Vaccine Resistance, a seminar at NYU.   There was a demonstration at the event, and the Vaxxed bus was there.  

Mark Blaxill of Age of Autism (and others) have written copiously about Dr. Offit. Below is the last Angry doctorinstallment of his series "Voting Himself rich," to give you a primer on Dr. Offit.

Offit Cashes In: Closing the Books on the Vaccine Profits of a Merck-Made Millionaire
By Mark Blaxill

“Cash in: To withdraw from a venture by or as if by settling one’s account.”

Paul Offit would like the world to see him as a champion of children’s health and a disinterested observer of controversial issues in autism and vaccine safety. In the view of many in the autism community, he is the worst kind of partisan: a Merck-made millionaire, a determined propagandist for expanding the medical industry’s vaccine profit pool and an active opponent of the need to stop the autism epidemic in its tracks. I will confess my own bias up front: like many autism parents, I hope and trust that history will bestow the fullest possible measure of shame on Offit, a man who so richly deserves it.

Atlanta Home of CDC Airs News Segment Questioning Vaccine Court

Pigs flyDon't bother checking your calendar to see if it's April Fool's day. It's not!  Here's another crack in the ever-weakening facade of ubiquitous vaccine safety and efficacy.   Sincere thanks to Investigative Reporter Jodie Fleischer* of WSB TV 2 in Atlanta, an ABC affiliate.

To learn more about the American Vaccine Court - which replaced traditional tort law regarding product safety vis a vis vaccines, please read The Vaccine Court by Wayne Rohde and published by Skyhorse Publishing.

ATLANTA - A federal program designed to help victims suffering from life-altering reactions to vaccines is falling short on promises made when it started.

It's called the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, a $3.6 billion fund created to take care of victims with catastrophic reactions to vaccines.

But a Channel 2 Action News investigation found it also protects vaccine-makers from being subject to lawsuits.

And they don't pay for the program -- you do.

"I JUST HAD A BAD FEELING ABOUT IT"

Jessica Mura suffered a permanent reaction to a flu shot in 2006, a flu shot she never even wanted to get.

"I just had a bad feeling about it," she said. "I was healthy. I was 21. To me, I was on top of the world."

But the vaccine was required by her employer, a south Georgia ambulance company.

"That was my passion, helping people," said Mura. "EMTs don't make that much money, but I didn't care. I just loved what I did."

Within days of getting the shot, her co-workers noticed the symptoms.

She vividly remembers the very last time she walked. It was into an emergency room.

"It's hard to go from the person who cared for people, to be the one being cared for," said Mura.

She slipped into a coma for several months, endured 15 surgeries and had to learn to speak and eat again.

Now 31, she has a permanent brain injury and is confined to a wheelchair.  READ MORE HERE.

About Vaccine Court, the book from Skyhorse Publishing:

A hard look at the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program and the families desperately trying to navigate their way through it.

The Vaccine Court looks at the mysterious and often unknown world of the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP), the only recourse for seeking compensation for those who have been injured by a vaccine. The NVICP, better known as the ”Vaccine Court,” however, is not without controversy.

Established by Congress as a direct result of the passage of the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986, the NVICP was supposed to offer a no-fault alternative to the traditional injury claims filed in state or federal courts and was to provide quick, efficient, and fair compensation for those who have been injured by vaccines. The reality, however, is that many cases take several years or longer to complete and require tremendous commitment from families already pushed to the brink of bankruptcy caring for the vaccine-injured family member, only to discover that the end result is manipulated by the government in defense of the US vaccine policy.

Mr. Rohde looks into the inner workings of the US Federal Claims Court and the NVICP. He interviews families who have filed petitions and won compensation, families who have been denied compensation, and families still waiting for a decision. By highlighting the journeys of these families—their efforts to find attorneys willing to represent them, the filing of their petitions, and the subsequent mountain of paperwork, medical records, and other documents that span years—Mr. Rohde exposes the bitter truth behind the NVICP. Through his thoughtful interviews and fact-finding research, The Vaccine Court sheds light on how the NVICP has evolved into something far more treacherous than what Congress envisioned with the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act in 1986.


Deirdre Imus Blogs About CDC MMR Autism Whistleblower Dr. William Thompson

Deirdre logoThank you to Deirdre Imus for writing about the CDC Whistleblower. She has a huge audience that reaches beyond the autism community.

By Deirdre Imus, November 8, 2016

That mercury is a known neurotoxin – meaning it is poisonous to nerve tissue – is not a topic of debate. The United States government acknowledges this, and consistently warns of its dangers to human health on the websites for the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) (link:http://www.atsdr.cdc.gov/toxfaqs/TF.asp?id=113&tid=24#bookmark05), the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) (link:https://www.epa.gov/mercury/health-effects-exposures-mercury), and elsewhere. Depending on mercury type, method of exposure, and a person’s age, the effects of mercury can vary. They include, but are not limited to, vision loss, lack of coordinated movements, cognitive difficulties, memory problems, tremors, skin rashes, and mood swings.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) removed the mercury-based preservative thimerosal from childhood vaccines starting in 1999 (though “trace amounts” do remain in some vaccines) while continuing to insist that studies had found no evidence of harm to children from mercury exposure. So when a former vaccine safety scientist at the CDC claimed that the agency committed scientific fraud in a series of studies on thimerosal in vaccines and a possible link to autism, you’d think the FDA, CDC, and other agencies meant to protect human health would be interested in hearing from him.

Not so much.

Dr. William Thompson, a 19-year veteran scientist at the CDC, has been blocked from testifying that he and others destroyed critical evidence of a relationship between childhood vaccines and autism. He wants to speak out, admit misconduct, right this wrong – but CDC director Thomas Frieden won’t allow it.

CDC Blocks Testimony of Vaccine Whistleblower says World Mercury Project

Denied stampRobert F. Kennedy, Jr. Vows Appeal

WASHINGTON, Oct. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Director of the CDC, Thomas Frieden, has sent a letter blocking CDC whistleblower, Dr. William Thompson, from testifying in a Tennessee court case involving a 16 year old boy who claims his autism is caused by vaccine injuries.

The boy's attorneys, Bryan Smith and Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., both of Morgan & Morgan, sought to have Dr. Thompson testify to explain his charges that the CDC committed data manipulation in a series of studies that found no link between vaccines and autism. Dr. Thompson has publically stated to Congressman William Posey and others that he and his colleagues in the CDC Vaccine Safety Branch were ordered to commit scientific fraud, destroy evidence and manipulate data to conceal the link between autism and vaccines. 

William Acree, Tennessee State Circuit Judge, had ordered the trial extended so that Thompson could be subpoenaed to testify. In a recent letter to the court, Dr. Frieden denied the request to allow Dr. Thompson to testify stating that "Dr. William Thompson's deposition testimony would not substantially promote the objectives of CDC or HHS."

Kennedy strongly disagrees. Dr. Thompson co-authored four key CDC studies widely touted to exonerate the MMR and vaccines containing the mercury-based preservative, thimerosal, from causing autism.  Thompson is a 19 year veteran at the CDC and formerly a senior vaccine safety scientist at their Immunology Safety Office.  In August 2014, under Federal whistleblower protection, Dr. Thompson revealed that despite CDC's claims to the contrary, the vaccine safety studies in question demonstrated a causal link between vaccines and autism symptoms.

US Government Will PAY You to Get a Flu Shot! Earn Thousands Today!

BarnumManaging Editor's Note: So maybe I used a bit of clickbait...  But the headline is technically true! True! True!  We run this article from 2010 each Fall during the Flu Shot push that is everywhere.  CVS?  Earn a 20% savings card!  Stop & Shop? "No Cost Flu Shot!" No cost? Not exactly. Read one woman's horror story below.  Hell of a way to make a payday.  

By Dan Olmsted

On the whole, Lisa Marks Smith would rather have had the flu. Instead, the Cincinnati mom of two college-age sons got a mercury-containing flu shot that nearly killed her, led to paralysis, severe neurological problems, 24 days in the hospital – and a check from the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program that attests to the truth of her story.

Smith has come to see first-hand how carelessly flu shots are administered, how dangerous the mercury that remains in most of them can be, how little public health officials actually seem to care when the worst happens, why the worst may not be so rare after all – even how similar the side effects can be to symptoms of autism.

She talked to Age of Autism about her ordeal, which began in 2005, in the hope of sparing others.

--

Dan: I thought I’d start by asking you where things stand now. How’s your health? How are you feeling at the moment about everything?

Lisa: The only lingering thing I have at this point is that if I do not take big doses of magnesium, my legs shake. And I mean muscle spasms, Charlie horses, twitches – think Parkinson’s shaking. I do feel my feet again after four years. I need to go shoe shopping because I only own sandals, and it’s cold this winter in Cincinnati, and if you feel your toes you can’t wear sandals in the snow.

Dan: Well, I guess that’s a good problem to have, considering what happened. Just to go over the basics, you got a monetary award from the vaccine injury compensation award program and it was how much?

Lisa: I am not allowed to tell but in all honesty the award would not have covered my medical bills. To me, it’s the validation – they can’t claim they don’t know what’s happening when they’re paying people.

Dan: And of course one thing we hear so much about, and it’s almost a cliché, is that correlation does not equal causation – in other words, "just because you got a flu shot and then got very sick doesn’t mean it caused it." But in this case, correlation was a very strong indication of causation.

Lisa: In my case, my neurologist said straight up, this is what caused it. So it’s very hard for them to say one doesn’t equal the other. You’re walking around, you’re perfectly healthy, you don’t even get colds. You have a flu shot and within two weeks you’re paralyzed, and paralysis is listed as a possible side effect.

Levi Quackenboss on the Topic of Dr. Bob Sears

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

By Levi Quackenboss

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

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

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

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

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

Weston A PriceFrom the Weston A. Price Foundation site:

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

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

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

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


Vaccines: Elimination Mandatory!

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

By Laura Hayes

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

SAN DIEGO, CA—The Hon. Dana M. Sabraw, federal district judge in San Diego, will entertain oral arguments on Education 4 All’s (E4A) Motion for Preliminary Injunction to halt SB277, at1:30 p.m. on August 12th.  E4A’s challenge to California’s repeal of all religious and conscientious exemptions to mandated vaccination is the only item on Judge Sabraw’s docket on Fridayafternoon, and the court will hear from the plaintiffs, the state departments of Health and Education, and from attorneys representing the Santa Barbara County public health office. 

With many California school districts returning to campus for the fall term, this Friday’s time sensitive hearing is critical for those children whose vaccination status will cause them to suffer exclusion from public and private schools under the new law.

Twenty-one individual and non-profit organization plaintiffs filed suit against various defendants including the California Departments of Health and Education, alleging that SB 277 is unconstitutional.  The lawsuit relies on the fundamental right to education under the California Constitution, the rights of parents and children under the United States Constitution, and cites numerous violations of state and federal law, including statutes that protect disabled children. 

Thousands of California students should learn after the hearing whether they may return to school in the next few weeks, or be permanently barred from receiving public or private education.

WHAT:           Preliminary Injunction Hearing

WHEN:           Friday, August 12th at 1:30 p.m.

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

A Citizen's Review of the CDC's HPV Vaccine Ad, "You Are the Key to HPV Cancer Prevention"

Fear sellsBy Linda1

Reading about  Dr. James Lyons-Weiler's petition to the FTC to stop the misleading Merck Gardasil 9 ads reminded me of the CDC's Youtube HPV ad published in 2013, titled "You Are the Key to HPV Cancer Prevention". 


Before this 5 minute 34 second ad so rudely interrupted my Youtube viewing some months ago, I didn't know that our government was using our tax dollars to sell pharmaceuticals on Youtube.  The ad ran before the 1/2 hour long arts and crafts video, then broke into the video again 1/3 of the way through, and then just before the end of the show, I was confronted with another propaganda piece titled "CDC Grand Rounds Beyond the Data: Reducing the Burden of HPV".  I wouldn't mind if they were putting out honest helpful information, but these campaigns are anything but.  (And how many Youtube channels insert their videos into other channels?  Is that a thing or is it just that the government gets to do that?)

Why is this bad?  It's bad because this is a government produced advertisement aimed at selling us a drug, using our money, with false and misleading information.  It is designed to scare us into accepting the drug, for our children, no less, without informed consent.  Should the government of a free society be in the business of drugging its citizens?  Of course not.  But that is exactly what they're doing.

The ad goes like this: 

First, we see an animated creaky blue door opening.  We hear foreboding music and thunder as we see a rapidly advancing shadow of a monster vine invade a room.  The number "14,000,000" fades in, then we see "Every Year in the US 14,000,000 people become infected with HPV" followed by the next screen "26,000" then "causing 26,000 HPV related cancers". 

By now it is clear that we are in a child's room.  It is blue and we are looking at the top of a dresser with a toy airplane, socks, and guitar.  Then over the boy's room we read "9,000 HPV related cancers in men and".   Then, as the monster-is-going-to-eat-your-child music continues, we see a girl's room - pink - top of dresser with ballerina statue and flowers in a vase and the words "17,000 HPV related cancers in women".

Battle for California - Stopping the Pharma Juggernaut

Goodbye CA
By Kent Heckenlively, Esq.

Let me tell you what I believe to be the long-term strategy of the pharmaceutical industry in regards to vaccinations.  First, they want to establish by law the precedent that a parent cannot refuse a vaccination for their child, or they will face the draconian penalty of that child being forced out of the public school system.  It's the dry run for what they want to try next, the forced vaccination of adults as a precondition of employment.

It really is that simple and that horrible, which is why what's happening in California should both terrify people, as well as have them sitting on the edge of their seat as to what will happen next.

As for the horror, I'm sure that most readers are aware of California Senate Bill 277, which was passed last year and signed into law by Governor Jerry Brown which provides that this academic school year, 2016-2017, starting in the lower grades, children in kindergarten and the seventh grade will need to have a certain number of vaccinations in order to attend school.  All religious and philosophical exemptions are gone and only medical exemptions will remain, but you can be sure they'll try to bully physicians into not granting them.  It is REALLY bad.

But what should have you sitting on the edge of your seat is a lawsuit filed by some real legal heavyweights, including a former member of Nader's Raiders, which seeks to stop SB 277.  As an attorney I have to say I am impressed by the filing and believe it has a good chance of success.  During the years I have been in this struggle I've been frustrated as to how little reason has been deployed in the debate.  I credit much of that to the terrible 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act which removed vaccines from the traditional civil justice system.  But the pharma minions were not content with that victory and wanted to go even further.  Tyrants usually set themselves up for failure when they try to do too much.  The reason pharma has tried to weasel out of the traditional civil justice system is they don't want to argue the merits of what they are proposing.

Here are some of the arguments our side is making that pharma and which pharma will be forced to respond:

Violation of the California Constitution - Access to public education is a fundamental right under the California constitution, which means that any abridgement of that right must be viewed with great suspicion.  The defendants must show there was an overwhelming need for the abridgment of this right and that the abridgment is narrowly tailored.  Furthermore, this proposed law discriminates on the basis of wealth, as more affluent parents are more able to homeschool their children.  It also discriminates on the basis of English language fluency as California law states that any parent who wants to homeschool their child must be fluent in English.

18 Facts the Ontario Vaccine Education Sessions Won’t Tell You

Zip lips
By Ted Kuntz

On December 11, 2015 the Ontario government announced its intention to introduce Bill 198, 27 a legislative amendment to the Immunization of School Pupils Act that would restrict parent’s access to legal vaccine exemptions for their children.  

Parents who consciously choose not to vaccinate or to vaccinate their children selectively will be forced to attend a mandatory vaccine “education session” before being allowed to exercise a right they already have - their medical right to informed consent and their Canadian Charter rights of freedom of conscience and religion and legal right to security of the person.

Below are 18 facts the Ontario government likely won’t tell you in their vaccine education sessions:

Fact #1: The safety of the current childhood vaccine schedule has never been proven in large, long-term clinical trials. 1 18 There is increasing evidence the risks of vaccination outweigh the benefits. 23

Fact #2: Vaccines have not been tested for carcinogenicity, toxicity, genotoxicity, mutagenicity, or for long-term adverse reactions.

Fact #3:  The current vaccine schedule has never been tested for safety in the real world way in which the schedule is implemented. 3  

Fact #4:  No independent trials confirm the safety of giving multiple vaccinations at once. Research shows a dose-dependent association between the number of vaccines administered simultaneously and hospitalization or death. 24

Dachel Wake Up: 64 Women Sue in Japanese Courts Over Cervical Cancer Vaccine

Dachel Morning Wake UoBy Anne Dachel

The HPV vaccine is proving to be not only high risk in terms of reactions, but high risk in terms of injuring teens and adults who can speak out - rather than "just" babies who stop or never start speaking at all.  From Japan Times:

A group of lawyers for 64 women who are suffering health problems from cervical cancer vaccines said Tuesday the victims will file damages lawsuits against the government and two drugmakers that produced the vaccines through four district courts on July 27.

Pittsburgh Mom Describes Serious Gardasil Vaccine Injury

Vioxx now gardasilNote: Doctors are ready to blame anything except the vaccines they administer when a patient becomes chronically sick.  Watch this video about how a 13 year old girl's life changed dramatically after "just one" dose of Gardasil. "No no no it couldn't be the vaccine." Except when it is.  See an interview with Sara at the bottom of this post. KRS

By Anne Dachel

Sara Sotomayor's mother tells her story at "VaxXed" in Pittsburgh. "She was injured by the Gardasil vaccine on October 17, 2006. She had just one dose of the Gardasil vaccine. She was 13 at the time. She’s 23 now, so we’re coming up on the ten year anniversary.




“As soon as the vaccine needle left her arm, she was squealing and crying. She said it felt like an aluminum bat hit her arm.

“We were, of course, reassured by the nurse at the doctor’s office that this is normal. Particularly the Gardasil vaccine, this is normal to have a lot of pain at the injection site. …

“Two days later, the pain is still there. She’s really complaining a lot, and she’s not a complainer. …So I called the doctor’s office and I said what was going on. Again they reassured me this is natural, this is normal, don’t worry about it. Just give it a little time. And so we did, we gave it time.

“I didn’t know anything about vaccine injury. …The following days and weeks what ended up happening was she had severe nosebleeds—like gushing. Her gait started to change when she walked. She kind of favored one side. She was extremely pale. …

Andrew Wakefield on VAERS Analysis

VAERSBy Andrew Wakefield

Neil Miller’s analysis of the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) provides two red flags for vaccine injury that have long been suspected by vaccine safety advocates—associations between first, the number of vaccines administered at the same visit and the risk of hospitalization and death, and second, younger age at the time of the vaccine adverse reaction and a higher risk of hospitalization and death.

Miller’s first real-world finding belies the entirely theoretical proposition—dangerously interpreted as carte blanche to give multiple shots simultaneously—that a child can receive ten to one hundred thousand vaccine antigens at the same time.  

His second finding on younger age at vaccination and risk of injury are entirely consistent with the true findings of the CDC’s study that looked at age of first MMR and autism risk.[1] African American boys and children of all races who were developmentally normal to age 12 months (‘isolated’ autism) had a highly significantly increased risk of autism following MMR on schedule (12-18 months) compared with those receiving it later. These facts were deliberately concealed for 14 years by the CDC authors and their superiors.

The second finding is also consistent with the observation that it was younger children who were at greater risk of meningitis with SmithKline Beecham’s dangerous MMR vaccine containing the Urabe AM/9 strain of mumps.[2] The implications for this finding were completely ignored by the authorities.  

Miller provides an informative history of the value of the VAERS system in picking up adverse reactions signals, reminding us at the same time of the huge under reporting of adverse reactions by medical personnel and the apparent reluctance by government investigators to link serious adverse reactions to vaccines. The value of VAERS is the red flags that it throws up. It should be used to generate hypotheses that lead to definitive studies and answers that we can believe in. We now know from Dr. William Thompson, the CDC whistleblower, that his agency cannot be trusted to do such studies. Congress has an obligation to act immediately to create an independent vaccine safety agency, completely outside of Health and Human Services and firewalled from pharmaceutical company influence.

JB Handley Talks Vax Safety on Medium.com

JbPORTLAND, Oregon — First, a disclaimer: I’m not a doctor, and the final decision about vaccinating your child should take place between you and your healthcare provider. I’m not giving you medical advice; I’m stating my opinion.

I am a dad. And, I write this without benefitting in anyway from what is said here. I have no book to peddle, no profits to protect, and there’s no doubt that writing this will result in some amount of hate directed in my general direction for challenging a popular narrative that vaccines are only safe and effective and should be administered the same way to all children without consideration for the unique biology of each and every child. So be it.

About the title

How could this be the only vaccine guide you’ll ever need? Like the old adage about teaching someone to fish, I believe my words will help you to do two things that can put you in control of the vaccine decision for your child and family:

  1. Do your own research. Understand the risks and benefits of everything you are putting into your child.
 

Every single person is different. There is no part of medicine where “one size fits all” is a good idea.

If you understand the harm vaccines can cause in some children and the benefits they provide, you won’t be intimidated by any pressure or judgment being placed on you by others.

2. Find a healthcare provider who doesn’t believe “one size fits all” when it comes to vaccines

The relationship between you and a doctor when it comes to vaccines is critical. There is a lot of shame and intimidation used in the healthcare profession to goad parents into vaccinating. This is wrong on so many levels, and there are also many healthcare providers who don’t believe one size fits all, who do believe every child is different, and who work with parents to provide the best plan for each child. Find that doctor. (And if someone shames you or tries to coerce you, run away fast!) They exist in every region of the country — network with parents until you find one. They might be a naturopath, a D.O., or a chiropractor, just find one!

 

That was easy, right? Do those two things (your own research, find a great healthcare provider) and you will be in great shape.

So you know, I did neither of those things when I had young kids in the early 2000s. I did no research. I went with the local pediatrician everyone else seemed to use. I regret those choices deeply, which is why I’m writing this to you right now*.

(*like tens of thousands of other American parents, I watched my son decline into Autism after following the vaccine schedule perfectly.)

I’m going to do 2 more things with this post to hopefully get you on your way to a better understanding of vaccines:

  1. I’ll share with you ten truths about vaccinations that most people — and especially new parents — don’t typically know
  2. I will go through every vaccine currently recommended for American children by the CDC and give you my opinion on their risk vs. benefit

Ten truths about vaccines most people don’t know

View Screen Shot of Dr. Kalb Blog Questioning Vaccines

Dr Kalb
NOTE: So, if a doctor, a practicing medical doctor with a clean license like Dr. Daniel Kalb, questions vaccine safety - here's what will happen - the "public health" community - meaning Pharma Phield Office will consider actions:  According to the Tennessee Department of Health's website, Kalb has had no disciplinary actions taken against him. It is not clear if his stance on autism and vaccines will provoke to board to take any actions against him.  The average American should ask him or herself - how on earth is a medical doctor at fault for questioning a product that he himself has to administer to patients? How indeed? 

We need to support the doctors who dare to speak out. Thank you to JB Handley for this screen shot of the blog post before it was pulled it down.   Seems Dr. Kalb may be learning the hard way about the Pharmafia - who've gone to the mattresses - behind our vaccination program.  (Hey, it's always a good day when you can work a phrase from The Godfather into your intro.)  KS


From FOX 17:

FRANKLIN, Tenn. (WZTV) -- A Franklin doctor is refusing to give vaccines, questioning their safety.

On the Cool Springs Family Medicine's site, Dr. Daniel Kalb wrote in a blog he believed vaccines are linked to autism. The blog has since been taken down... [See screen shot above for the blog post while it was live.]

The CDC and the Tennessee Department of Health say there's no proven link between vaccinations and autism. Both agencies recommend children be vaccinated.

Executive Director of Autism Tennessee Babs Tierno has an autistic son, but she doesn't believe there's a link between the developmental condition and vaccines.

"We want to treat every individual as an individual," Tierno said. "Any medical professional who makes blanket statements and blanket decisions without taking an individualized approach that is a bit concerning."

FOX 17 reached out to Dr. Kalb's office twice this week. An employee told FOX 17 he is not currently commenting on the blog.

According to the Tennessee Department of Health's website, Kalb has had no disciplinary actions taken against him. It is not clear if his stance on autism and vaccines will provoke to board to take any actions against him.... Read more here.


CDC Sponsored MMR Study Supports Wakefield’s findings

CdclogoBy F. Edward Yazbak MD 

Introduction: 

On May 26, 2016, Rohde and Conte published their 4th report on the movie “VAXXED”. 

The report was titled “Did the CDC Censor Vaxxed? Or Did the CDC’s Proxies Do It for them? Columbia University’s Dilemma.” 

The report and related comments were most informative and readers should review them in order to appreciate the role Professor Ian Lipkin of Columbia University played recently.   

Dr. Lipkin's dislike of Dr. Andrew Wakefield is not new. In 2008, Dr. Lipkin co-authored a CDC- AAP sponsored report that I carefully reviewed and critiqued on September 12, 2008. My critique was to be published on Monday September 15, 2008 on the Vaccine Autoimmunity Project (VAP) web site but … it never was, because some time during the weekend, the web site was hacked and destroyed.   

Two British vaccine information sites published my review but it was never widely distributed in the United States until today.

MINNESOTA DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH SCHOOLS PROFESSIONALS TO PERSUADE SOMALI PARENTS TO GIVE THEIR CHILDREN THE MMR VACCINE – DESPITE CLEAR OPPOSITION


Note: Excerpted from the Vaccine of Safety Council of Minnesota. Thank you to Patti Carroll for sharing with us.

By Patti Carroll, VSCM board member

I apologize for the long title, but it’s important that readers understand exactly what our tax dollars are being spent on.

On Wednesday, April 13th, I attended an educational forum for professionals put on by the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH). The title of the forum was “Autism in the Somali Community and Vaccine Hesitancy”. The stated purpose was: “This session will provide the latest information on autism spectrum disorder (ASD) by a national childhood development expert and updates on immunization data relevant to Minnesota Somali children”.

Why the Statute of Limitations in The Vaccine Court is SOL

POI

By Wayne Rohde

One of the most discussed, debated, and obscene forms of injustice in the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP) -- the "Vaccine Court" --is the very restrictive statute of limitations. Plainly put, you have 3 years from the onset of symptoms for injuries after the administration of a vaccine.  In the case of death, only 2 years. Other state and federal court systems have more generous statutes ranging from 6 to 10 years to the date the minor child reaches the age of 18.

The latest effect of this unfair requirement is to deny justice to girls who have been rendered infertile by the HPV vaccine, a growing problem that needs to be addressed.

The Statute

42 U.S.C. § 300aa-16(a)(2).

Section 300aa-16(a)(2) of the Vaccine Act provides that, regarding a vaccine set forth in the Vaccine Injury Table which is administered after [October 1, 1998], if a vaccine-related injury occurred as a result of the administration of such vaccine, no petition may be filed for compensation under the Program for such injury after the expiration of 36 months after the date of the occurrence of the first symptom or manifestation of onset . . . of such injury.

Special Master Lisa Hamilton-Fieldman overseeing the HPV-POI Omnibus

This statute of limitations is not triggered by the administration of the vaccine, but “begins to run on the date of occurrence of the first symptom or manifestation of onset of the vaccine-related injury for which compensation is sought.” Cloer, 654 F.3d at 1335. “[E]ither a ‘symptom’ or a ‘manifestation of onset’ can trigger the running of the statute [of limitations], whichever is first.” Markovich v. Sec’y of HHS, 477 F.3d 1353, 1357 (Fed. Cir. 2007). [i]

“[I]t is the first symptom or manifestation of an alleged vaccine injury, not first date when diagnosis would be possible, that triggers the statute of limitations.” Carson ex rel. Carson v. Sec’y of HHS, 727 F.3d 1365, 1369 (Fed. Cir. 2013), reh’g & reh’g en banc denied, 2013 WL 4528833 at *1.  “A symptom may be indicative of a variety of conditions or ailments, and it may be difficult for lay persons to appreciate the medical significance of a symptom with regard to a particular injury.” Markovich, 477 F.3d at 1357.  While the symptom of an injury must be recognized as such “by the medical profession at large,” Cloer, 654 F.3d at 1335, even subtle symptoms that a petitioner would recognize “‘only with the benefit of hindsight, after a doctor makes a definitive diagnosis of injury,’” trigger the running of the statute of limitations, whether or not the petitioner or even multiple medical providers understood their significance at the time. Carson, 727 F.3d at 1369-70 (quoting Markovich, 477 F.3d at 1358).[ii]  

Markovich was the defining case for onset of symptoms.  The little girl started to blink at a doctor’s office.  The pediatrician interpreted that as a symptom of seizures and wrote a note in the file.  A few years later, the parents filed a petition seeking compensation for their daughter’s injuries.  The petition was later dismissed on the grounds that it was time barred, or exceeded the 3-year statute of limitation. 

By a couple of weeks. 

Or a mother, frantically trying to understand that her child was falling a little bit behind.  The doctor wrote in the margins of the medical chart, speech delay.  But did not tell the parents.  Later, the parents would file a petition seeking compensation for vaccine injuries causing development delay and autism.  Petition would not be adjudicated on the merits of the known injury.  DOJ attorneys asked the special master to dismiss the petition because it was time barred.  Just a doctor recording an observation without telling the parents.

And no fault of the parents.

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

Get it got it good
By Justin Kanew

This is the 3rd of 4 interviews on this topic... the 1st (with Del Bigtree) and the 2nd (with Brian Deer) can be found HERE. Thanks again to AofA and all of you for all the feedback-- even though I can't respond to all of it I promise I'm seeing it and it's appreciated.

After talking to Del Bigtree and Brian Deer, one of the aspects of the subject of vaccine injury I wanted to hear more about was the U.S. Vaccine Court, which kept coming up, and the case of Hannah Poling, which it seemed was a tough case for the "Vaccines never ever cause autism" side to refute.

The explanation given for her case seems to be that Hannah wasn't compensated for her autism, even though she has an autism diagnosis, but was instead compensated for her "encephalopathy seizures" which resulted in "autism-like symptoms". I had trouble understanding the difference, and in his interview with Sanjay Gupta it seemed to all be the same to Hannah's neurologist father Jon also, so I reached out to him to see if he could explain it.

Jon didn't want to talk, but he did turn me on to the work of Mary Holland and Lou Conte, who as many of you AofA-ers probably know are 2 parents who after much scientific and observational research have come to the conclusion vaccine injury is the only plausible explanation for the regression of their children into autism. 

In their Pace University article Mary and Lou found 83 other cases of autism among the vaccine-injured kids compensated for brain injury, which was eye-opening, and in the interview Lou poses a seemingly fair question: 

"If vaccines don't cause autism, how come all these children compensated for vaccine injury have autism?"

Here's my conversation with Mary and Lou:

 

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

Justin Kanew Interviews Brian Deer on "Get it Got It Good" (2 of 4)

Screen Shot 2016-05-31 at 11.21.28 AM

By justin Kanew

As a quick reminder, this is the 2nd of 4 interviews. The first was with Del Bigtree, producer of Vaxxed, which you can listen to here if you haven't yet.

In this next one I wanted to talk to someone who feels differently about the controversial topic of vaccines and autism than Del does, so it seemed there would be no more diametrically opposed viewpoint than that of Brian Deer. 

I know I don't have to tell most of you Brian is the investigative journalist who accused VAXXED director Doctor Wakefield of fraud in a series of Sunday Times articles and initiated the investigation that got Wakefield's medical license revoked in England years ago. He's the source of much controversy and many strong feelings, and Brian himself has strong feelings about Wakefield, so I wanted to hear directly from him what his thoughts were about the topic and why.

So here's that interview:

 

I'd also like to address the fact that in the comments section I've seen people wonder if I'm some sort of "plant" sent from high above to hurt the case against vaccines, which I assure you I will swear on a stack of any kind of holy book you may read I'm not. 

I've also seen people question how this interview happened. It's simple really- Brian's email is public on his website, I emailed him, and he responded (see photo at the top of this post.)

I'm not sure if that will help put those concerns to bed, but if not I think you'll find the episode shows we are anything but in league together. I look forward to hearing more from you about it.

I should also say that in the 2 days since the first interview posted, I've found myself the target of ire from both sides. Anti-vaxxers are angry that my wife and I still plan to try to find a safe way to vaccinate our baby girl, while pro-vaxxers are angry that by doing these interviews I'm giving a platform to the makers of Vaxxed and like-minded anti-vaxxers.

It's been heated, but it's ok. I can take it. I'm a big boy. I knew this was a contentious comment, and I expected to hear a lot of

Before Caitlin, Edward and the Temple of Vaccinia


Temple of vaccinia
Thanks to Kevin Barry and JB Handley for this info on FB. The title alone piqued my interest - I had once written a Huffpo titled "Dr. Paul Offit, Pope of the Church of the Immaculate Vaccination."  Vaccines have had a mythical, pseudo-religious status since their very earliest days it seems.  "The Temple of Vaccinia" is rather regal sounding, don't you think? .  In reality, they are a century plus long Tuskegee experiment.

Before Caitlin, before Bruce, there was another famous Jenner.  Edward.  Dr. Edward Jenner (see below.)

Vaccines have been an experiment since the first patient, James Phipps, patient of Edward Jenner.  To be sure most of early medicine has been trial and error - long before there were any approval/safety processes in place. I happen to know that early cryo-freezing of the cornea for cataract surgery in the 1960s was conducted in Connecticut without safety approval or knowledge beyond the surgeon and the technicians who invented the technology.  A nurse was outraged, and yet the surgery continued.  The result was a highly successful company and a huge improvement in cataract surgery. America was built on risk taking.   But should that theory apply to our kids health in 2016? Today's pediatric vaccine schedule remains a mass experiment.  Ask your doctor to show you the safety data from the government or vaccine manufacturers on the cumulative safety of the pediatric schedule.  Bring a pillow, a blanket and a Kindle loaded with books. It will be a long time before you get an answer.   KIM

James Phipps, the son of a poor landless labourer, was the first person to be vaccinated by Edward Jenner. On 14 May 1796, Jenner cut into the skin of the 8-year-old boy and infected him with matter from a cowpox sore.

Justin Kanew Interviews Del Bigtree of VaXxed The Movie

VaxxedBy Justin Kanew

Let me say right up front that my wife and I have a 2-month old daughter, and that my #1 goal here is to learn as much as possible about how to care for her health, because if anything happened to her I honestly don't know what I would do.

Until recently - like most people - I assumed vaccines were 100% safe, and I thought anyone who thought otherwise was dangerous and selfish, putting everyone else at risk. I thought this because I was told this, by many people, many times. 

"The science is in." 

"Vaccines are 100% safe." 

Lather, rinse, repeat. 

The first chink in the armor was a conversation with a friend of mine whose grandson, he said, was developing normally, got the MMR shot at 15 months, dropped into a fever that night, regressed suddenly, and has had severe autism ever since. 

His story seemed far-fetched, but my friend is no storyteller, and I soon learned he was not alone in this experience. 

Now to be clear, we're no strangers to the autism spectrum conversation- one of my best friends has Aspergers, and my wife is a BCBA who works with kids on the spectrum every single day... but digging deeper and hearing the many eerily similar stories of autism-related vaccine injuries from parent after parent was a new experience for us, and made me wonder where my self-assuredness about vaccine safety had come from-- and, most importantly, why it seemed to be something nobody was allowed to talk about.

My wife getting pregnant brought this all into sharper focus. Soon we would have to make these difficult decisions ourselves.

VaXxed The Movie Facts

CdcpoliticsAs you share information about vaccine safety and the connection to autism, your friends and family will likely recite what they have heard over and over in the media, "but, THAT doctor's study was "debunked."  Here is a bolus dose of clarification about who is Dr. Andrew Wakfield from the VaXXed The Movie website :

Find a showing here.

###

Since the release of the 1998 paper in The Lancet, which suggested the possibility of a link between a novel form of bowel disease, autism, and the MMR vaccine, one of the report’s co-authors, Dr. Andrew Wakefield has been the subject of great controversy and defamation. Here, Wakefield addresses the allegations of fraud, conflict of interest, and medical misconduct that have been leveled against him.



Visit the VaXxed site to see the following video clips:

1. Dr. Wakefield's Medical Background

Wakefield shares his medical background as a gastroenterologist and how he became involved in research related to autism.

2. The Link Between Autism and The MMR Vaccine - 1:24

The link between the MMR and inflammatory bowel disease was first brought to the attention of Dr. Wakefield and his colleagues by the parents of sick children. Wakefield explains how human disease syndromes are normally identified and then studied and how that related to their study on MMR and the age of exposure. Jump to section.


3. MMR Vaccine Safety - 3:28

Wakefield explains how safety studies on vaccines including the MMR, were largely inadequate. Testing for single vaccines was better. Jump to section.

Circumcision and Autism: A Recent Danish Study

Where's Poul 3 A GamondesNOTE: Thank you to Dr. Y for allowing us to exceprt Master Manipulatorthis post. Read more at Vaccination News.   A new book from Skyhorse Publishing delves into the Thorsen scandal - buy Master Manipulator Master Manipulator: The Explosive True Story of Fraud, Embezzlement, and Government Betrayal at the CDC by James Grundvig from Skyhorse Publishing today before the copies disappear... like a certain researcher.

Edward Yazbak M.D.

For a period of time, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) had a love-fest with Danish Researchers who agreed to produce needed evidence that in spite of parental reports, MMR vaccination and Thimerosal containing vaccines played no role whatsoever in the increased prevalence in autism and autistic spectral disorders (ASD).

In 2005, I published “The CDC finances, writes and helps publish Danish research”, a discussion of five Danish studies.

Those five Danish studies (DS) were:

DS 1: Madsen KM, Hviid A, Vestergaard M, Schendel D, Wohlfahrt J, Thorsen P, Olsen J, Melbye M. A population-based study of measles, mumps, and rubella vaccination and autism. N Engl J Med. 2002 Nov 7;347(19):1477-82 PMID: 12421889

DS 2: Madsen KM, Lauritsen MB, Pedersen CB, Thorsen P, Plesner AM, Andersen PH, Mortensen PB. Thimerosal and the occurrence of autism: negative ecological evidence from Danish population-based data. Pediatrics. 2003 Sep;112(3 Pt 1):604-6. PMID: 12949291

DS 3: Hviid A, Stellfeld M, Wohlfahrt J, Melbye M. Association between thimerosal-containing vaccine and autism. JAMA. 2003 Oct 1;290(13):1763-6. PMID: 14519711

DS 4: Lauritsen MB, Pedersen CB, Mortensen PB. The incidence and prevalence of pervasive developmental disorders: a Danish population-based study. Psychol Med. 2004 Oct;34(7):1339-46.PMID 15697060

DS5: Larsson HJ, Eaton WW, Madsen KM, Vestergaard M, Olesen AV, Agerbo E, Schendel D, Thorsen P, Mortensen PB. Risk factors for autism: perinatal factors, parental psychiatric history, and socioeconomic status. Am J Epidemiol. 2005 May 15;161(10):916-25; discussion 926-8. PMID:15870155

Studies 1 and 5 were funded by the CDC and co-authored by Diana Schendel PhD, at the time a CDC (NCBDDD) epidemiologist.

Poul Thorsen MD, PhD co-authored DS1, DS2 and DS5.

Thorsen did very well for himself as a CDC Principal Investigator and Liaison between the United States and Denmark in autism-related matters for years. He served on the Faculties of two US universities and incredibly, even on the DSM-V Committee.

Dr. Thorsen’s most notable achievement was the embezzlement of a couple of million dollars from the research funds he had access to. His multiple Federal indictments and the fact that he was featured for a long while on the Most Wanted Fugitives List of the Office of the Inspector General, HHS did not seem to affect his serene post-CDC life or his continued employment in Denmark.

"I gotta hand it to him. Pan is fast!"  Del Bigtree.

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

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.

Vaccination’s Dilemma: Unsafe at Any Dose

Gary Null PRNThank you to Mary Holland for sharing this article with us.  Listen to the May 3 broadcast which featured this article by Richard Gale and Gary Null here: Progressive Radio Network, May 3, 2016

By Richard Gale and Gary Null

The CDC and advocates for mandatory vaccination consistently repeat a dangerous mantra that finds no warranted basis in medical science. This monolithic industry, now a massive network of private and government institutions, state senates, and supported by a compliant media, want us to believe that science has finally settled the debate over vaccine safety and efficacy. All the data is in, so we are told, and no further research and discussion is necessary because vaccines have been officially ruled to pose no neurological and immunological risk to infants, children, pregnant mothers, adults and the elderly. This official policy is founded upon flawed premises and a primitive understanding about the complexities of the human body and its multifaceted immunological system.

This argument’s fallacy is actually quite simple. Valid science is never settled. The myth of “settled science,” which is especially endemic to the biological and medical sciences that rely on private financial interests, is sheer propaganda. Valid science, on the other hand, constantly seeks new discoveries to acquire further knowledge and greater understanding. The pursuit to fully comprehend the complexity of our biological, immunological and physiological systems, therefore, is in perpetual infinite regress. Today’s justifications for medical intervention, whether by drugs or vaccines, eventually become tomorrow’s barbarities as science further penetrates the hidden functions and operations of the human organism. Hence valid medical research should elicit new questions and not settle upon incomplete facts that are then proselytized as universal truths.

Would You Drive A Car That Failed 50% of the Time? CDC & Flu Shots.

California-lemon-law-attorneyIf you buy a car that fails, you are protected by The Lemon Law.  If you buy a vaccine that fails?  Or if that vaccine harms you? You can go suck a lemon.....  From the National Vaccine Injury Center:

Americans have never been big fans of flu shots. During the 2009 “swine flu” influenza A pandemic, only about 40 percent of adults bothered to roll up their sleeves.

Last year, flu vaccine rates were still just 47 percent for adults but pediatricians had vaccinated 75 percent of children under two years old. 2 Perhaps it is because parents are being thrown out of pediatricians’ offices if they don’t give their children every federally recommended vaccine – or maybe it is just because adults can talk about how they felt after getting vaccinated and infants and children under age two cannot.

How many times has someone told you: “The year I got a flu shot is the only year I got sick” or maybe you learned that the hard way yourself after getting vaccinated. Doctors insist that just because we get sick with a fever, headache, body aches and a terrible cough that hangs on for weeks after getting vaccinated, it doesn’t mean the vaccine made us sick. They say it was just a “coincidence” because correlation does not equal causation.

Well, that may be true some of the time, but now the CDC is admitting that flu shots don’t prevent influenza most of the time. 5 In fact, studies show that a history of seasonal flu shots can even make people more susceptible to getting sick with a fever, headache, body aches and a terrible cough that hangs on for weeks! 6 But just like with pertussis infections, a lot of people also get and transmit influenza infections without showing any symptoms at all.   Read more and watch the video at:

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....

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

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?"

RIP: J. Anthony Morris, Vaccine Officer Who Questioned Safety Dies at 95

J Anthony Morris


From The Washington Post. RIP, Dr. Morris.

J. Anthony Morris, a federal vaccine specialist who was forced into retirement after public disagreements with superior officers over the efficiency of federal vaccine programs and the effectiveness of influenza vaccines, died May 31 at a health-care center in Hyattsville, Md. He was 95.

The cause was congestive heart failure, said his daughter, Cam Esser.

Dr. Morris was chief vaccine officer for the Bureau of Biological Standards at the National Institutes of Health and later with the Food and Drug Administration, when the bureau was transferred to that agency in the 1970s.

ADVERTISING
 

He argued that research carried out by his unit demonstrated that there was no reliable proof that vaccines were effective in preventing influenza, and he accused the government of basing its mass vaccine programs for flu primarily on claims made by pharmaceutical manufacturers.

The issue came to a head in 1976 when President Gerald R. Ford signed a bill appropriating $135 million to vaccinate 140 million people against swine flu that fall and the next winter. Dr. Morris was outspoken in his opposition to the inoculations.

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.

VAXXED Director Andrew Wakefield Breaks Silence on Vaccine Violence Against Children and CDC Coverup

2016-logoNOTE:  The 2016 political season has brought forth candidates that the political and corporate machines both fear and loathe for their willingness to speak out. Americans know that most systems are so stacked against us that the voting process is almost an exercise in futility.  Sadly, while so many can see how the Bank of Americas, Goldman Sacha and Monsantos of the world do not have our interests in mind, they refuse to even consider that pharmaceutical companies, who have paid billions in product liability and fines for outright lying could also have been harming a generation of children via vaccination.  The disconnect is shocking. The calls for censorship by those who would expose any other wrong are perplexing in the extreme.   However, both Trump and Sanders represent a chink in the armor of the status quo.  Love them or dislike them.  Let's hope 2016 is the year that Americans finally get to see, hear and read about the vaccine violence that has been set upon our children like a biblical Passover visit when none of us had an X over the door.  As always, profound thanks to Dr. Wakefield for never, ever giving up on the search for science on behalf of our children. YOUR children. KS

Below, VAXXED director Dr. Andrew Wakefield is interviewed by Gary Franchi revealing the truth behind the CDC's cover-up of the link between Autism and vaccines and to present his side of the story in the wake of attacks against his research exposing the link.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=titN2bZYlUU&feature=youtu.be
 
Dr. Wakefield: "We have a senior scientist from the CDC admitting to covering up for 13 years the link between MMR vaccine and autism, and in black boys in particular this age of exposure risk. ...
 
"And what it means for the autism community is that they have been deceived. ..."
 
Andrew Wakefield announced that he and others presented the question of a link between the vaccine and autism to the CDC in 2000, "and they found it was the case in 2001."

THE AUTISM EPIDEMIC - Whom should you believe?

Trust us!By Dr. Yazbak

During the last year, agenda-driven politicians introduced laws, rules and regulations that went against the wishes of parents in many states. Suddenly, parents who had always been free to make decisions concerning their infants and young children’s faith, health, diet, activities and everything else, lost their right to be concerned and selective when it came to the many mandated and ever-increasing pediatric vaccinations.

A few pediatricians, now immune from vaccine-related liability and litigation suddenly started getting cranky and disagreeable with parents who dared question them about the need, timing or safety of certain pediatric vaccines. Some pediatricians put threatening notices in their waiting rooms or on Facebook, some requested parents to sign affidavits and some simply discharged from their practice those parents they deemed too time- consuming. All those pediatricians, presumably Fellows of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) seemed to ignore the Academy’s responsible advice: Although pediatricians have the option of terminating the physician-patient relationship, they cannot do so without giving sufficient advance notice to the patient or custodial parent or legal guardian to permit another health care professional to be secured. Such decisions should be unusual and generally made only after attempts have been made to work with the family. Families with doubts about immunization should still have access to good medical care, and maintaining the relationship in the face of disagreement conveys respect and at the same time allows the child access to medical care. Furthermore, a continuing relationship allows additional opportunity to discuss the issue of immunization over time."

For personal reasons, I became interested in everything related to Autism in 1993.

MMR Vaccination and Autism Revisited in 2016

Note:  As always, thank you to Dr. Yazbak - and to Vaccination News for allowing us to excerpt this post.  Please bookmark their site and visit often.

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.”

In 2002,  Dr. DeStefano and W.W. Thompson PhD of the National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities published an Editorial: “MMR vaccination and autism: is there a link?” in Volume I Issue 2 of Expert Opinion on Drug Safetyhttp://www.tandfonline.com/doi/pdf/10.1517/14740338.1.2.115 

The detailed and well researched publication is certainly worth reading. It listed 32 references but mostly stressed the importance of a particular 1999 publication by Taylor et al (Reference 14) that Drs. DeStefano and Thompson described in the reference table, as “The most scientifically rigorous epidemiological study of a possible association between MMR vaccine and autism. No association was found.” http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10376617

Under “3- Epidemiological studies of MMR and autism”, DeStefano and Thompson referred again to the Taylor et al Study as “The most scientifically rigorous study to date” and under “5- Causality assessment”, the CDC authors lauded Taylor’s research as “the only population based epidemiological study that has been able to calculate relative risks and no association was found between MMR vaccine and development of autism.”

I certainly respect the right of Drs. DeStefano and Thompson to be impressed by the June 1999 Lancet publication by TaylorFarrington, PetropoulosFavot-MayaudLi and Waight titled “Autism and measles, mumps, and rubella vaccine: no epidemiological evidence for a causal association.”

The Case for Vaccine Choice

LilipohExcerpted from LILIPOH

Author: Joseph Cooney, MD
Issue: Winter 2016: Biodynamic Food & Farming - Issue #82, Vol. 21

We’ve had many conversations with parents regarding their concerns over the decision of whether or not to vaccinate their children. They are actually quite torn about it. On one hand, the medical world makes the argument that you are either crazy or selfish not to vaccinate. Vaccines help us avoid acute illness and, in doing so, lower death rates. It’s a no brainer, right? Not necessarily, because on the other hand, these parents hear about the association with declining acute illness in childhood and the growing chronic illness, allergy, and immune dysfunction in children and adults. They simply want what’s best for their child and they’re not sure what to do. How can we resolve this? Now with mandatory vaccination being advanced in some places, the issue is begging for review and reflection.

But arent vaccines accepted by scientific consensus?

The fact that vaccine policy is generally accepted as safe and effective today does not protect it from being subjected to a shift in the field that will change the scientific consensus. Nor does that fact protect it from being subjected to scrutiny or debate.   The medical world often makes the mistake of not recognizing which conclusions are firm or not. Many a young doctor in training hears the tale of the sage physician who warned the upstart doctors that “half of what we know now is wrong, we just don't know which half.” 

Experience plays this shifting field out in modern medicine. A major example in my career is the reversal of the decades-long recommendation for women to take replacement hormones at menopause. We thought we could improve on nature with our science. Now replacement synthetic hormones are discouraged because the natural state of menopause was found to be protective against breast cancer and heart disease. The list of therapeutic interventions that were once accepted but are now defunct is long enough to give one serious pause. For crying out loud, it took science decades to reach consensus that tobacco was bad for your health. Furthermore, bottle feeding with formula was once thought of as 'scientific' and modern and superior to breast feeding. 80% of women stopped breastfeeding during that time in the last century. The modern day reversal of this trend is a signature event for the movement of rediscovery of nature's deeply complex and wholly inclusive quality. Nature knows best.

Vaccines and Infant Mortality

Angry babyBy Dr. William H. Gaunt Millers Review

There is a very interesting relationship between the number of vaccines required by various countries in the first year of life and the infant mortality rate in those countries. Infant Mortality Rate[IMR] is the number of infants per 1000 live births that die before reaching their first birthday. Thanks to Neil Z. Miller for allowing me to use information from his September 2011 scientific study in Human & Environmental Toxicology. His new book (Miller’s Review of Critical Vaccine Studies) is a must have for people seeking information about vaccines. He summarizes 400 scientific studies related to vaccines and the information is fascinating.

 

Have a look at tables 1 and 2. You can see that the United States requires more vaccines in the first year of life than any other country yet has the highest IMR of all developed countries. We require more than twice as many vaccines as Sweden, Japan, Iceland, Norway, and Denmark yet our IMR is much higher than those countries.  Many factors can impact IMR but the number of vaccines in the first year of life appears to be an important factor.

Truth in Media: CDC, Vaccines and Autism

Ben-swann-fullFrom Truth In Media. Please visit the site for the video.

Ben Swann is an investigative journalist working tirelessly to dissolve the left/right paradigm prevalent in most mainstream media narratives. As a news reporter and anchor in the earlier days of his career, he has gained a wealth of experience while earning two Emmy Awards and two Edward R. Murrow awards. In addition to heading the Truth In Media Project, Ben is the prime anchor at WGCL-TV in Atlanta, GA. He can be seen anchoring live at 4 p.m., 5:30 p.m., 6 p.m., and 11 p.m. EST, Monday through Friday. A stream is available at cbs46.com.

The debate over whether vaccines cause autism has become one of the most controversial disputes in this country. In this episode of Truth In Media, the focus is not on whether vaccines are responsible for autism. The issue at hand here is a study that was performed at the CDC and the question of whether the agency was complicit in a cover-up over a decade ago.

For over two years, Truth In Media has explored the allegations of Dr. William Thompson, a CDC scientist who came forward in 2014, hired a whistleblower attorney, and claimed that important data regarding a study on vaccines and autism was eliminated.

Thompson’s claims have led to a divide among Americans, with some believing that Thompson’s allegations are credible and should be investigated further, and others convinced that the documents Thompson handed over mean absolutely nothing. In December 2015, Ben Swann was the first journalist to obtain the documents from Congressman Bill Posey.

In this episode, Swann further examines not only Thompson’s claims, but also the documents related to the study, with the assistance of doctors, journalists, authors and former CDC specialists who joined Swann in discussing every document that was handed over.


Breaking News: Is HPV Vaccine Safety an Illusion Maintained by Suppression of Science?

SanevaxIs HPV Vaccine Safety an Illusion Maintained by Suppression of Science?

By Norma Erickson

Breaking News: On January 14, 2016, Dr. Sin Hang Lee sent an open letter of complaint: Allegations of Scientific Misconduct by GACVS/WHO/CDC Representatives et al An open-letter of complaint to the Director-General of the World Health Organization, Dr. Margaret Chan , to the Director General of the World Health Organization, Dr. Margaret Chan, charging members of GACVS, the CDC, the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare, and others with manipulation of data and suppression of science in order to maintain the illusion of HPV vaccine safety in the face of valid contradictory evidence.

According to Dr. Lee’s letter, a series of emails recently uncovered via a Freedom of Information request submitted in New Zealand revealed evidence that Dr. Robert Pless, chairperson of the Global Advisory Committee on Vaccine Safety (GACVS), Dr. Nabae Koji of the Ministry of Health of Japan, Dr. Melinda Wharton of the CDC, Dr. Helen Petousis-Harris of Auckland University, New Zealand, and others (including WHO officials) may have been actively involved in a scheme to deliberately mislead the Japanese Expert Inquiry on human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine safety before, during and after the February 26, 2014 public hearing in Tokyo.

The complaint letter states that the emails provided clearly demonstrate this group of WHO officials and government employees charged with the responsibility of advising the expert committee from the Japanese government on HPV vaccination safety knew before the February 26, 2014 Tokyo public hearing that one of their own experts showed scientific evidence that HPV vaccination does increase cytokines, including tumor necrosis factor (TNF), particularly at the injection site compared to other vaccines. Yet, they chose to suppress this information at the public hearing.

New Book: Vaccination Policy and the U.K. Government: The Untold Truth

Vax Policy EnglandVaccination Policy and the U.K. Government: The Untold Truth

By Research Journalist Christina England and LucijaTomljenovic, PhD

What do Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy (MSBP), Gulf War Syndrome and shady vaccination policies have to do with the United Kingdom (UK) government? Using a wide selection of studies, papers and documents released under the Freedom of Information Act, two highly regarded vaccine researchers have uncovered how, by prioritizing vaccination policy over vaccine safety, the Joint Committee of Vaccination and Immunization (JCVI), the Department of Health (DH), the Committee on Safety of Medicines (CSM) and the Ministry of Defence may have damaged the health of millions of people worldwide.

Written in two sections, LucijaTomljenovic, PhD, and Christina England have discussed important issues that they believe could be affecting the lives of hundreds of thousands of families around the world.

In part one, England discussed the history of Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy (MSBP), looking carefully at the questionable research behind the label. Using exhaustive research, she has outlined a detailed history of MSBP, why its diagnosis appears to be given to families with vaccine-injured children and why the medical profession chooses to blame parents instead of admitting the truth about vaccines. Using government documents, England has disclosed evidence that suggests professionals behind the false diagnosis are linked to the pharmaceutical industry and the vaccination programs.

Jennifer Margulis: Why American Doctors Are Questioning Vaccines

Margulis Your BabyWe excerpted this post from author Jennifer Margulis' site.

You can find her books including Your Babv Your Way on Amazon here.

By Dr. Adrienne Carmack, M.D.

The medical profession tells great tales of decades past when people died from, or were disabled by, diseases such as polio and smallpox, and how the invention of vaccines stopped these epidemics. I believed that vaccines didn’t cause any diseases or problems and that they definitely saved lives. I also believed that those who refused vaccines were the very reason these diseases still existed.

But when I entered the “natural” community by choosing a midwife and breastfeeding, I was exposed to medical theories that differed. During my childbirth classes at the midwifery center, I was surprised when the student teaching the class brought up the subject of vaccines. She suggested that not getting any vaccines was a reasonable choice.

Ben Swann on Vaccine Safety and the Release of the #CDCwhistleblower Documents

Ben-swann-full
Note: Ben Swann began reporting on the problems in the vaccine program two years ago, and today on Age of Autism he discloses that Congressman Bill Posey has released to him the CDC documents turned over to Congress by Dr. William Thompson concerning the cover up of the links between the MMR and autism.  Swann discusses Vaccine safety, vaccine choice, potential corruption at CDC and his plans for the #CDCwhistleblower documents in a video interview with Age of Autism Media Editor, Anne Dachel.

By Anne Dachel

A month ago vaccine safety advocates and members of the autism community witnessed some astonishing news coverage on CBS 46 in Atlanta.  On the segment Reality Check, reporter Ben Swann presented a piece called, CDC Scientist Admits Data of Vaccines and Autism Was Trashed.  

 

The story focused on the October protest held at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the claim being made about an agency whistleblower.  For the ordinary viewer turning on the local news this report must have seemed a little unsettling.

Ben Swann: "Just days ago over a hundred protesters gathered outside of the CDC right here in Atlanta, demanding transparency when it comes to vaccines. . . .

"Those protesters... say that the information being provided to the public about vaccines is not completely honest, and all of it hinges on one man...a scientist you probably never heard of.   That scientist's name is Dr. William Thompson, and it was on August 27, 2014 that Dr. Thompson made an admission that got very little media coverage but it was a major statement...." 

Swann went on to quote Thompson regarding the findings of a 2004 MMR study published in Pediatrics.  Thompson said that the agency concealed data showing African American males were at increased risk for autism if they received the MMR vaccine before 36 months of age.  Viewers were told about thousands of CDC documents that were now in the hands of U.S. Rep. Bill Posey. 

"Congressman Posey brought this information to the floor of Congress and what he read there was nothing short of stunning, that authors of the study not only hid the actual findings, but attempted to destroy evidence. ..."

Swann cautioned his audience that just because someone raises questions about vaccine safety, doesn't mean they are anti-vaccine.  He then talked about the risks involved with vaccination and the compensation that's been paid to victims. 

All of this was astonishing to those of us who follow the vaccine/autism controversy in the news.  Reporters simply don't do this kind of thing.  This was real investigative journalism.  Swann raised serious questions about government oversight. 

I was able to talk with Ben Swann about his story and about what he's learned.  He are his comments on Skype.

I asked Ben how he became involved in the issue of vaccine safety.

Eliminating Access to the Vaccine Court

Access deniedBy Wayne Rohde and Lou Conte

This article is part of a a series examining the NVICP, the ability to file for compensation of a vaccine-related injury or death and the culture that allows this.  See links below.

Over the course of the next few months, we will be examining different areas of concern related to our ongoing investigation of the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP) or commonly known as the Vaccine Court. We will discuss how the NVICP is shutting its doors on children who have been vaccine injured or have died as a result of a vaccination. We do not take this task lightly, as we have been investigating the NVICP for many years only to uncover the injustice served on the American people, the intentions of Congress have been circumvented after passing the legislation in November 1986, and how the NVICP has morphed into an adversarial, litigious, and secretive legal process. The majority of the public do not even know that the program exists.

There have been many articles written about the injustices in the NVICP and even a few books, including The Vaccine Court – The Dark Truth of America’s Vaccine Injury Compensation Program and Vaccine Injuries, outlining areas of needed reform, injustices served upon the families and individuals, and possible constitutional issues.

The program has gone to great lengths to wordsmith decisions, to hide as many obvious injuries from the public. In the paper, In Unanswered Questions from the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program: A Review of Compensated Cases of Vaccine-Induced Brain Injury, Holland, Conte, Krakow and Colin found 83 cases of autism in encephalopathy cases compensated by the NVICP. Since that publication in May 2011, we have also discovered several recent decisions by Special Masters awarding compensation to children who received a diagnosis of autism after being injured from a vaccination.

Who is Calling the Shots? - A Town Hall Meeting to discuss Oklahoma Senate Bill 830

Yen OKThanks to the many readers who shared this video with us and to Becky Estepp for this brief summary: Stephanie-Christner-Photo-2013

The Tulsa County Men’s Republican Club hosted State Senator Ervin Yen and Dr. Stephanie Christner last week to debate Oklahoma’s Senate Bill 830. Senator Yen sponsored this controversial bill which would take away a parent’s ability to exempt their children from school vaccination requirements if passed. Both Senator Yen and Stephanie Christner are medical doctors, which should have made for a very even debate. 

However, it seemed that Senator Yen was unprepared to debate his bill. Dr. Christner came prepared with a powerpoint presentation that included scientific studies, statistics, court cases and government policies to back her stance that SB 830 would be bad for Oklahoma. Senator Yen provided the audience with a lot of political double talk to back his position. 

The audience consisted of parents who showed great knowledge of problems within current vaccine schedule. The Senator had a hard time answering many of their questions. At one point he falls back on the reason for this bill is to keep his five children safe which seems like a tough position to take when debating a doctor whose infant daughter died of a vaccine reaction. 

This segment is one-and-a-half hours long but worth it. 



From NVIC in 2013: Stephanie Christner, DO, has been appointed to a four year term as the voting consumer representative on the Vaccines & Related Biological Products Advisory Committee (VRBPAC) of the Food & Drug Administration (FDA). On Nov. 13, 2013, she will participate in her first meeting as a member of VRBPAC, a 12-member FDA committee that reviews and evaluates vaccine safety, effectiveness and appropriate use of vaccines and biological products intended for public use, including clinical trial and other data submitted by drug companies seeking licensure of new vaccines.

The Canary Party Joins The National Vaccine Information Center in Calling for the Repeal of the 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act

Canary logo 4 22The 1986 law that prevented Americans from suing Pharmaceutical companies for vaccine injury and death, and established the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program has been a failure.  It is time to repeal this legislation.

This law has allowed vaccine interest to abuse the public trust by pushing less safe and less effective vaccines, ignoring soaring reports of serious adverse vaccine reactions, and bloating the vaccine schedule from 24 doses in the 60's 70's and 80's, to a 69 dose schedule today that is not tested in combination for safety.  

Further, the US Vaccine Injury Compensation Program created to replace the tort system has been a failure, and has done more to protect vaccine profits than it has to care for victims of vaccine injury.  The US Government Accounting Office, Stanford Law, American University Law and The Associated Press/NYT have all issued their findings following in depth investigations into the program and agree that the VICP fails to properly compensate vaccine victims.  

Because the public accountability mechanism has ceased to function, vaccine interests, and even doctors in offices, are now making wildly false product safety claims to families, and the public has no way to stop this misinformation campaign by those profiting from the over use and inappropriate use of vaccinations.

This special liability protection given only to vaccine makers has turned the vaccine business from a 750 million dollar per year industry to a reported 27 billion dollar per year industry, while the the health of American children during that same time period has plummeted.

CDC Investigates Itself on #CDCwhistleblower Fraud Charges and Then Declines to Share Results with Congress

Cotton by Ginger Taylor

After the blockbuster revelations that Dr. William Thompson had come forward and admitted that CDC was withholding information that they found linking vaccines to autism, Congressman Bill Posey took the lead in investigating the matter. After many months of sorting through documents given to him by Thompson, Posey took to the floor of the House of Representatives last summer to confirm that there was ample evidence that fraud was taking place and called for formal Congressional hearings.

Utah Representative Jason Chaffetz, the new head of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, had reportedly committed to Rep. Posey that he would hold hearings, however those reports were followed by others suggesting that key members of Congress were coming intense under pressure from vaccine interests not to hold hearings, and instead to allow CDC to investigate themselves.

Indeed, CDC spokesperson Tom Skinner released the following statement to Forbes Magazine, announcing that the agency will investigate themselves for the fraud charges that have been levied against them:

"CDC is aware that employee Dr. William Thompson has raised concerns regarding an article he co-authored that was published in 2004 in Pediatrics. Consistent with CDC’s existing policies and procedures, the agency, through its Office of the Associate Director for Science (ADS), and in coordination with the HHS Office of Research Integrity, is reviewing these concerns. The agency will provide further information once the review is completed."

Months after Rep. Chaffetz had reportedly committed to hold hearings, no hearings have been publicly discussed. Further, activists in the black community report that the ORG's ranking member, Rep. Elijah Cummings, initially committed to them that he would look into the Thompson disclosure, but recanted his commitment to them within days of making it.

On Monday, Rep. Posey took to his facebook page to share that he had learned that CDC had completed their investigation of their potential fraud, and had prepared a video response. He contacted them to request a copy, but CDC has declined to produce it for the Congressman.

Congressman Bill Posey's post to facebook:

"ARROGANT, PETULANT & DEFIANT - I was informed by an insider they did an investigation, prepared a response and produced a video as a result of the July 29th video I posted below. I simply asked to see..."

I had not realized that responses like these were possible to government agencies with oversight and investigative powers, and after reading the Dena Morris response, I have been inspired to use her letter as a template in to address a matter in my own life:
