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: 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.

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.
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.
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.

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.
Thanks to the many readers who shared this video with us and to Becky Estepp for this brief summary:
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.
The 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.
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:

Finally, we are seeing legitimate, thorough reporting on the vaccine controversy by someone in the mainstream press, on an actual news program that people in Atlanta could see on their local station.
I'm talking about the Oct 29, 2015 story, Reality Check׃ CDC Scientist Admits Data of Vaccines and Autism Was Trashed, the amazing coverage of the whistleblower at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on CBS46, hosted by Ben Swann.
In the segment, Swann proved he is an honest investigative reporter, willing to take on the most heated controversy in pediatric medicine. In the four and a half minute coverage, Swann said things that we would never expect to hear from a reporter:
"Just days ago, over a hundred protesters gathered outside the CDC right here in Atlanta demanding transparency when it comes to vaccines. So are these people conspiracy theorists or do they have a good reason to be here? I promise, this is a reality check you won't see anywhere else.
"It is an incredibly controversial subject, to say the least, but those protesters outside the CDC here in Atlanta 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 of 2014 that Dr. Thompson made an admission that got very little media coverage, but it was a major statement. That statement read in part, 'I regret that my co-authors and I omitted statistically significant information in our 2004 article published in the journal, Pediatrics.
"'The omitted data suggested that African American males who received the MMR vaccine before age 36 months were at increased risk for autism.
"'Decisions were made regarding the findings of the report at the data collected and I believe that the final study protocol was not followed.'"
Swann explained that Thompson came forward after he was secretly recorded by Dr. Brian Hooker and that he has turned "as much as a hundred thousand documents" over to Congress.
Swann called Rep Bill Posey's announcement made in the House of Representatives "nothing short of stunning."
"Authors of the study not only hid the actual findings, but attempted to destroy evidence. . . . Quoting from Dr. Thompson, 'The authors of the study decided not to disclose to the public that African American boys under 36 months were more susceptible to developing autism or autism-like symptoms from the MMR vaccine. . . .'
"Not only did the CDC hide that information, but the authors of that study threw that information into a trash can and destroyed it."
Swann asked why anyone who questions any aspect of the vaccine program is immediately labeled, anti-vaccine. He told people to consider that "all vaccines, in all quantities for all people, are not safe. Every year, hundreds of children are injured by vaccines here in the United States." He added that over $3 billion have been paid out for vaccine injuries.
Oklahoma City, OK November 1, 2015
Parents across Oklahoma believe SB 830 (bill to remove the philosophical and religious vaccine exemptions) is simply government overreach, discrimination, and a violation of parental rights to make medical decisions for their children. As a non-profit organization gaining popularity following the introduction of SB 830, OVC has become what is now a diverse group of citizens, from a variety of vocational careers, educational backgrounds, including vaccinating and non-vaccinating individuals, all fighting to defend and preserve the personal and religious liberties that Oklahoma has held dear for decades. Today it is one the fastest growing grass roots effort with the largest resources on this vaccine choice in the state.
Here are just a few organizations that stand with OVC in the opposition of SB 830:
Parent Rights Oklahoma, Canary Party, OK Grassroots Project and former State Representative Porter Davis, Restore Oklahoma Public Education (R.O.P.E), Parentalrights.org, Tulsa 9.12 Project, Living Faith Ministries, International and Oklahoma Conservative Political Action Committee, Oklahoma Chapters of John Birch Society, Liberty Oklahoma to name a few.
UPCOMING EVENTS - Health Liberty Rally, Monday, February 8th, 2016 at the Capitol building in the Supreme Court Hallway. Those interested in showing their support for personal and religious liberties can rally at the capitol and hear speakers from 12-1:00 and visit with legislators afterward from 1:00-2:00.
RECENT PRESS –
OKLAHOMANS FOR VACCINE CHOICE
Please bookmark the SaneVax site for information about HPV vaccines.
I would like to thank the Committee for allowing me to provide additional information relating to my request for ‘A round table discussion to be held at Edinburgh between scientists and medical professionals from both sides of the HPV vaccine safety debate.’ I speak today on behalf of not only the UK Association for HPV Vaccine Injured Daughters who have had their lives turned upside down after HPV vaccine administration, but each of the 2019 people from 55 countries who signed because they are having similar experiences and support open scientific discussions.
Our association was organized at the beginning of this year when it became apparent that we needed to co-ordinate everyone’s individual efforts as a group. Our association represents families from Scotland, England, Wales and Northern Ireland operating under the banner of HPV Vaccine Injured Daughters (AHVID). As a group, we were able to receive greater publicity. The increased awareness caused our membership to grow by leaps and bounds. Our initial group of 60 members has expanded to 208 and rising. Despite the fact that Scotland only accounts for 8% of the UK population; 15% of the association’s members come from Scotland. We don’t know how many others are out there, but for now there appears to be no end in sight.
A senior politician within the Irish Government, Pashal Mooney, gave an impassioned plea to Irish Government officials regarding the Irish HPV vaccination program, lack of informed consent and the devastating effects on young girls around the country. He specifically mentions Irish girls being admitted to psychiatric hospitals following HPV vaccinations.
Japan has rescinded the government recommendation for HPV vaccines and initiated studies to determine whether there is a causal relationship between HPV vaccines and adverse outcomes as well as a 21 year study to determine whether HPV vaccines have an impact on cervical cancer diagnosis rates.
Thanks to Ginger Taylor for posting this study in Pediatrics 68 years to the day after it was published. Vaccination safety is an on-going topic, as you can see. There have been scientific studies documenting vaccine injury for decades. Was Pediatrics "anti-vaccine" in 1947? Or simply doing their job of publishing scientific facts?
ENCEPHALOPATHIES FOLLOWING PROPHYLACTIC PERTUSSIS VACCINE
Inspection of the records of the Children's Hospital for the past ten years has disclosed 15 instances in which children developed acute cerebral symptoms within a period of hours after the administration of pertussis vaccine. The children varied between 5 and 18 months in age and, in so far as it is possible to judge children of this age range, were developing normally according to histories supplied by their parents. None had had convulsions previously. Many different lots of vaccine, made by eight different manufacturers over a period of eight years, were implicated. The inoculations were given throughout the usual geographic range of children coming to this hospital. All but one, at the time of follow-up or death, showed evidence of impairment of the nervous system, which might still have been in the healing stage in three or four.
SafeMinds Review of Autism-Like Outcomes from Vaccinations in a Non-Human Primate Model
Findings identify distortion in public reporting and argue need for full disclosure of study documents.
Does published research always reflect the truth? A research paper came out last month in the prestigious Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences with this title: Administration of thimerosal-containing vaccines to infant rhesus macaques does not result in autism-like behavior or neuropathology. The paper, by Bharathi Gadad, Laura Hewitson and colleagues, concluded that "administration of TCVs and/or the MMR vaccine to rhesus macaques does not result in neuropathological abnormalities, or aberrant behaviors, like those observed in ASD."
This paper was preceded earlier this year by another based on the same primate model of vaccine administration and autism and was led by the same primary investigators. It too was published in a prestigious journal, Environmental Health Perspectives. It also "provided no consistent evidence of neuro-developmental deficits or aberrant behavior in vaccinated animals."
Pretty strong conclusions. Case closed, no? Well, not so fast. The Medical literature is rife with misreported investigations and selective reporting. What is published in journals is only a small piece of the entire body of any investigation's work, and some investigations are not published at all, so a large part of the evidence base may remain largely invisible to the scientific community or to the public. What's ultimately published may reflect bias, intentional or not.
SafeMinds partially funded this investigation of vaccine administration and autism-like outcomes in a non-human primate model. We have been following it since its inception in 2003, have had regular internal updates from and interaction with various investigators, and have read all the public documents that have appeared from this decade-long, complex placebo-controlled experiment. Based on our knowledge, SafeMinds has serious concerns about the validity of the conclusions of the two most recent papers. Read the full article at SafeMinds.
A Montreal social scientist and the federal agency that awarded her almost $300,000 to study the HPV vaccine are facing criticism after the professor condemned the vaccine and called for a moratorium on its use.
THIS is the danger we face when healthcare is no longer for profit. Doctors speak out....
“I’m sort of raising a red flag, out of respect for what I’ve found in my own study, and for the despair of parents who had totally perfect 12-year-olds who are now in their beds, too tired to go to school,” she said. “Yes, we’re going against the grain, and we are going against those who are believed, i.e. doctors and nurses and people in public health.”

I really have to hand it to the marketing wizards of the pharmaceutical industry. In California, the cultural trend-setter of the nation, 97% of the children in our schools were fully-vaccinated, according to the CDC schedule. But that wasn't enough for you, was it? You had to try and run the table by jamming SB 277 through the California legislature and threaten to throw the children of thinking parents out of school, didn't you?
It must have gotten under your skin that there was 3% of the market still left on the table. There was that rebellious 3% that didn't care how many times Dr. Nancy ("Get your damn flu-shot) Snyderman told us from on-high there was no debate about vaccines and autism. (So sorry Nancy that you lost that cushy NBC job when you decided that Ebola quarantines were for other people!) And we didn't care how much you told us that Dr. Andrew Wakefield was a real-life Dr. Evil, when a much better comparison is Dr. Albert Schweitzer.
And yes, when you got the news media to go to sleep about the fact that even the corrupt "Vaccine Court" had paid out damages to at least 83 children who developed autism after their vaccinations, and $3.1 billion for other vaccine injuries, there were still some of us who knew the truth. And yes, so far you've been able to keep the news media quiet about CDC whistleblower, Dr. William Thompson, but there's at least one Presidential candidate with a big mouth who will probably be spilling the beans on that little issue any day now. In fact, at my last count, there are at least three Presidential candidates who think we need to ask more questions about vaccines.
To my beloved brothers and sisters in the Golden State I have a message: You have succeeded in raising a mighty army! I salute you!
Like our own American Revolution, before it happens victory seems impossible, but when the future looks back on these events, the outcome will appear inevitable. I am speaking of the effort to repeal SB 277, which would take away a parent's sacred right to alter the vaccine schedule based on philosophical or religious grounds, a right enshrined in both our Constitution and the Nuremberg Code passed in the wake of World War II to ensure that if fascism ever raised its evil head again the civilized nations of the world would fight the threat in all its various disguises.
SB 277 is an abomination, taking away a parent's right to choose what medicines, toxins, animal products, and aborted fetal human tissue may be injected into their children's bloodstream in a misguided attempt to ensure health. Yes, it does sound dramatic when I say it like that, but I challenge anybody to show where I am mistaken. If you surrender that right and your child's health to the state, what else is left? The last vestige of freedom will have been extinguished.
And that is why the battle to repeal SB 277, led by former Assemblyman, Tim Donnelly, has been so inspiring. As a student of the American Revolution, I am aware of how there were repeated insults by the British crown to the American Colonies, and for so long the citizenry failed to respond. Revolution does not come easily to a people. I have wondered for several years what it would take to awaken our country to this danger, and have watched in sorrow as many worthy efforts have failed.
The battle for California is really heating up! As many of you know, the governor of California, Jerry Brown, has signed into law SB 277, which takes away personal and religious exemptions in California, in defiance of the US Constitution and the Nuremberg Code passed after World War II, which requires FREE AND INFORMED CONSENT to any medical procedure.
Former Assemblyman Tim Donnelly has courageously volunteered his time and efforts in putting together a referendum so that the voters of California can express their opinion, rather than the paid lobbyists of pharma and their corrupt politicians in Sacramento!
If you live in California, donate, and share the video widely on social media!
Tim Donnelly has created a FUNDME account to raise money to hire professional petition gatherers to make sure this important cause gets on the ballot! TIME IS SHORT! HELP WITH ANY AMOUNT YOU CAN!! $5.00 whether you live in CA or not would add up fast from AofA readers. Your state is next. Let's send a message NOW.

We need your help to convince Governor Cuomo to veto the meningitis vaccine mandate recently passed by the New York Legislature. Yesterday a group of parent advocates met with Governor Cuomo's staff to make a case for a veto. We presented all the objective data the State Senate and Assembly refused to consider before they passed this bill. We explained that according to all the data from the CDC, FDA, New York State Department of Health and the vaccine manufacturers we could expect far more injuries and death from vaccinating every seventh and twelfth grader in the state than by doing nothing. But the Governor needs to hear from you.
Please click HERE to send an email to the Governor, and please take a few minutes to make a call to the Governor's office at the number below and politely explain that you want the Governor to veto the bill.
And please write a polite letter to the governor asking him to veto S4324c/A791a. Letters from voters matter. Please write to the Governor at the address below. You can use the email on the Take Action link as a model but please include your own thoughts.
The Honorable Andrew M. Cuomo

Meningococcal meningitis is extremely rare. There have been no deaths from meningococcal meningitis in the age group targeted by this bill in New York in the past five years. However, there have been at least three deaths caused by meningitis vaccines in the same population reported to the federal Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS).
I’ve run across a few really good tidbits from the CDC’s social media accounts lately. The first one was on Twitter and it suggested taking a quiz to see which vaccines for infectious diseases you need if you have a chronic disease. The irony is enough to make anyone pass out.
First, vaccines don’t prevent chronic disease. Nobody with Crohn’s Disease wakes up in the morning and says, “Oh, I have Crohn’s, I should probably get an MMR vaccine.” Secondly, vaccines cause chronic disease. It’s written all over the package inserts, PubMed database, and thousands of peer-reviewed studies. (Don’t bother telling the CDC, they already know.) Third, if you have a chronic disease, you’re more likely to suffer from a vaccine adverse reaction. (Logic would follow that a strong immune system is required to deal with the nasty in the shot and mount a “proper” response.)
I took the quiz twice, first as a pregnant lady and was recommended six vaccines (none proven safe or effective for pregnant women) and the second time as a “could become pregnant lady” and MMR and chicken pox were added to the list. (There was no box to check whether your chronic illness was caused by a prior vaccine.)
Eric Gladen and Shiloh Levine’s documentary, Trace Amounts, was featured as part of the United Nations 2015 NGO Conference.
Since Tuesday, hundreds of international Non-Governmental Organizations have been gathering at UN Headquarters in New York City to “Honor the Past, Recognize the Present, and Imagine the Future.”
Yesterday, a crowd of 150 conference goers watched the film and attended the post-screening Q & A which featured Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., Eric Gladen and Dr. Brian Hooker. Given the international reach of the conference, attendees particularly were interested to learn that, while the U.S. has reduced thimerosal in many vaccines on the childhood schedule, thimerosal-laden vaccines are still being widely distributed in developing countries, exposing millions of children to the risks of mercury.
A video of the post screening Q & A will be available in a few weeks and will posted widely.
Scientific fraud is revealed by CDC scientist Dr. William Thompson in the new book Vaccine Whistleblower by lawyer Kevin Barry. Here are a few highlights:
Listen to Kevin Barry, author of Vaccine Whistleblower, from Skyhorse Publishing, on Gary Null yesterday. Kevin's portion begins at 37:40. Listen below:
KevinBarryon CDCWhistleblowerOnGary Null
Kevin Barry is a former federal attorney in civil law and currently the co-President of the Elizabeth Birt Center for Autism Law and Advocacy and the president of First Freedoms INc, a non profit organization dedicated to advancing the freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution’s First Amendment. Earlier he was the president of Jenny McCarthy’s organization Generation Rescue. Kevin has three sons, one with autism.
Below is Robert F. Kennedy Jr.'s response to Emily Willingham's August 10th article in Forbes titled Hey, Interpol, I Found Your Autism Researcher Fugitive.
By Robert F. Kennedy Jr.
Emily Willingham's strained defense of CDC’s rogue researcher, the international fugitive, Poul Thorsen, is yet more evidence that Forbes prioritizes Pharma's mercantile interests ahead of the health of American children. (“Hey, Interpol, I Found Your Autism Researcher Fugitive”, Forbes, August 10, 2015)
Stark facts belie Willingham's dismissive assertion that Thorsen is merely the creature of an anti-vaccine conspiracy mill. Poul Thorsen is subject of a 22-count indictment by the US Department of Justice for wire fraud and money laundering in connection with more than $1 million in research grants that he allegedly pilfered from CDC as he was ginning up fraudulent studies to “prove” that vaccines don’t cause autism. His crimes have won him a slot on HHS's "most wanted" list. (Oddly, US Officials have not requested an extradition order against Thorson despite a treaty providing for extradition between the US and Denmark). Thorsen has also been disgraced and dismissed by his former employer, Aarhus University. As of 2014, Denmark’s university hospital system has permanently expelled him from practice. The fact that he is roaming free and is easy to find, despite the US Federal indictment, does not imply Thorsen’s innocence, as Willingham suggests. Rather it suggests a lack of enthusiasm by HHS and CDC to press for his capture and extradition. The agency undoubtedly fears that a public trial would expose the pervasive corruption throughout CDC’s vaccine division and the fragility of the science supporting CDC’s claims about thimerosal safety.
Dr. Thorsen is one of the co-authors and data manager for two leading foreign studies offered by CDC as the foundation of its claims that vaccines do not cause autism. Only purposeful misstatement or journalistic sloth can account for Willingham’s declaration that Thorsen’s conclusions “have not been called into question”. For over a decade, myriad critics have exposed those studies as brazen fraud. Thorsen’s thimerosal study, Madsen et al. 2003, is one of the principle publications offered by CDC to exculpate thimerosal – the mercury based vaccine preservative from suspicion that it causes autism (The Institute of Medicine largely based its milestone 2004 finding that thimerosal was safe on Madsen et al. 2003, another similarly flawed Scandinavian study, one study from the United Kingdom and two American studies, both of which CDC whistleblower, William Thompson recently exposed as dubious). Madsen et al. 2003 purports to show that autism rates increased in Denmark after the Danish government removed thimerosal from vaccines in 1992. But critics point out that the alleged increase in autism was the illusory artifact of Denmark’s new reporting protocols.
Here’s how Madsen, Thorsen and the CDC team crafted their deception: In 1992, the year after Denmark fully enacted the phase-out of thimerosal, it required, for the first time,that outpatient autism cases be reported on the government’s national health registry. Prior to 1993, only inpatient cases were reported representing approximately 7% of the total. The new requirements increased the reported autism cases by thirteen-fold. Furthermore, the registry’s inpatient body count prior to 1993 omitted the patients at Copenhagen’s largest autism clinic which housed 20% of the national total. After 1993, the clinic’s patients were included. Finally, Denmark enlarged the diagnostic criteria for autism in 1994 increasing the potential number of autism cases in the registry by up to 25-fold. Dr. Thorsen and his cronies took advantage of the artificial rise caused by the new registry rules to fraudulently conclude that real autism incidence had increased following thimerosal’s ban. This, of course, was craven chicanery - but the fraud got worse.
Despite the “cheats” in the Madsen et al 2003 paper, the Registry data still showed a pesky drop in autism rates between 1999 and 2001 in 7-9 year old children. This was significant since these children were the first generation born after Denmark’s thimerosal phase out in 1992. Leaked CDC documents show that the authors responded to this with an audacious breach of established protocols, deleting that entire year class from the final published version of the study. That maneuver constituted scientific fraud of the highest order; CDC scientists deliberately manipulated the final dataset to prevent public disclosure of the decrease in autism since it did not support the study’s conclusion that there was no association between thimerosal and autism. Secret CDC emails obtained by SafeMinds via former Congressman Dave Weldon, show that the decision to omit the 2001 year data was made at the suggestion of Poul Thorsen with the direct approval of CDC’s then Developmental Disabilities Branch Director, Coleen Boyle and against the pleas of the Danish study’s primary author, Kreesten Madsen.  (Coleen Boyle made her bones at CDC orchestrating the infamous coverup of the links between Agent Orange and Vietnam vet morbidity during the 1980s). It’s no wonder that CDC is not anxious for a public trial of Poul Thorsen. Danish journalist, Ulla Danielsen has speculated that Thorsen’s carefree lifestyle in Denmark and the fact that he has never been interrogated by police despite the extradition treaty between the US and Denmark – is evidence that US agencies are protecting him.

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

CALL YOUR MEMBERS OF CONGRESS NOW AND REQUEST THAT THEY READ THE #CDCwhistleblower DOCUMENTS!
One week ago, on the floor of the House of Representatives, Congressman Bill Posey testified that CDC vaccine safety researcher Dr. William Thompson had reported to Posey's office that he was present for a meeting in which his colleagues destroyed data which demonstrated a clear link between the MMR vaccine and autism. Dr. Thompson, believing this to be illegal, retained copies of these documents and turned them over to Rep. Posey, along with thousands of others which reportedly show that the CDC has committed fraud in its vaccine safety research.
Rep. Posey has now offered this set of documents to any and all members of Congress for review.
From C-SPAN: REP. Bill Posey Calling for an Investigation of the CDC's MMR reasearch fraud
Rep. Bill Posey brings former CDC researcher and now Whistleblower, Dr. Bill Thompson's letter regarding significant files they omitted and destroyed to avoid reporting any significant race effects in their study.
To date there has been no response in the media or from members of Congress on this revelation.
It is time for us to tell our legislators to get in the game!
Contact your members of Congress and tell them to:
1.Request the documents from Bill Posey's office.

August 3, 2015: The last couple of weeks there was a lot of conversation online, in Washington and by the media about what is more important to many Americans – aborted babies or hunted lions.
The release of video showing Planned Parenthood doctors and staff discussing aborted babies whose body parts are being provided to research organizations (for payment) outraged many and spurred some legislators to call for an ending of taxpayer funding of the non-abortion services provided by the organization. Planned Parenthood quickly responded with a high dollar television media campaign blitz to ‘win the hearts and minds’ of Americans.
Just as this story was peaking, every news station and show for days covered the tragic story of Cecil, a ‘much beloved’ lion in Africa who was killed by an American big game hunter. Both of these stories are pretty horrible. In the priority setting vein of thought, two things have happened during this same time frame in which comparisons are warranted.
•Media Priority: At the same time the media storm blew in on Cecil the Lion, a revelation that has been a year in the making happened on the floor of the United States House of Representatives which should have led every news story on every network across the country, but so far has been completely ignored by all but a few online media outlets. While there were observations made that ‘the mainstream media’, i.e. CBS, NBC, and ABC gave more attention to the story of Cecil than the story of Planned Parenthood. None of the networks or cable news shows gave air time to the Posey floor speech.

By Ann Fitzpatrick from Carlow, Republic of Ireland
My daughter turned 15 in February of 2015. Once she had lots of friends and participated in many activities both in school and at home. She did Irish dancing from 4 years of age, played football for her parish and county, and was awarded 2nd place in the world handwriting competition. She was great in school. In short, she was healthy, active and happy.
All of that changed shortly after she got her first injection of the HPV vaccine, Gardasil in October 2012.
By November she started having seizures. Since then she has had chest pains, vision problems, non-epileptic seizures, low blood pressure, inflammation of the stomach and small bowel, reflux, is very tired and has no energy. She has a pulse rate that can go up to 216 just walking 10 feet, or 178 sitting down. She has been told so many things by doctors in the last 2 1/2 years that she does not even want to go near them anymore
In April 2013, due to the number of seizures she was having at school, she was told by the school administration that she wouldn’t be allowed to attend anymore ‘for health and safety reasons’. They said that she should be home-schooled instead. So my daughter went to the papers and told her story. She let people know that she wanted to go to school and that they could not stop her. She is now in Junior Cert year but has only got 5 hours a week of home schooling.
The row over the Indian rotavirus vaccine Rotavac being developed by Bharat Biotech is continuing. Jacob Puliyel, paediatrician at Delhi’s Stephen’s Hospital, had been drawing attention to an excess of intussusception cases in the vaccinated group in a trial of the new vaccine and is calling publicly and in a petition for the raw data to be published. Intussusception is a blockage of the intestine associated with all rotavirus vaccines but the early figures for the Indian product seemed to be dramatically worse than for earlier versions.
In June in the British Medical Journal reported:
Gagandeep Kang, professor of gastrointestinal sciences at Christian Medical College, Vellore, who worked on the trial, said that the trial data cannot be used to estimate the risk of intussusception from the vaccine as the campaigners have argued. “This was not a study powered to detect rare events. If you want to find the rate of intussusception, you need to evaluate the vaccine in hundreds of thousands of children,” she told The BMJ.
It is not, however, clear why the study would be useful to study efficacy and not safety, particularly as unfortunately the events do not seem to be rare. Meanwhile Bharat Biotech, the Indian Government and World Health Organization are determined to plough on with a larger trial which could injure more children. Dr Puliyel has written in the electronic responses of the BMJ:
Dr Kang does not provide the data that will allow easy calculation of the risk in Vellore but she quotes the WHO reporting that “existing data on Rotavac do not point to an increased risk from intussusceptions”. The data, when provided, will speak for itself and we do not have to rely on the say-so of the WHO.

THE SPEAKER PRO TEMPORE: THE GENTLELADY YIELDS BACK. THE CHAIR RECOGNIZES THE GENTLEMAN FROM FLORIDA, MR. POSEY, FOR FIVE MINUTES.
MR. POSEY: THANK YOU, MR. SPEAKER. I RISE TODAY ON MATTERS OF RESEARCH AND SCIENTIFIC INTEGRITY....
AofA's Adriana Gamondes took the time to prepare this unofficial transcript.
July 29th, 2015 House Morning Hour
Congressman Bill Posey (R-FL) at 1:02:29 http://www.c-span.org/video/?327309-1/us-house-morning-hour&live=
Thank you Mr. Speaker. I arrive today on matters of research and scientific integrity.
To begin with, I am absolutely, resolutely pro-vaccine. Advancements in immunization have saved countless lives and have greatly benefited public health. That being said, it’s troubling to me that in a recent senate hearing on childhood vaccination, it was never mentioned that our government has paid out over three billion dollars through a vaccine injury compensation program for children who have been injured by vaccinations. Regardless of the subject matter, parents making decisions about their children’s health deserve to have the best information available to them. They should be able to count on federal agencies to tell them the truth.
Excerpted from The International Medical Council on Vaccination.
By Roman Bystrianyk
The fatal tendency of mankind to leave off thinking about a thing when it is no longer doubtful, is the cause of half their errors. – John Stuart Mill, 1859
Majorities are never a proof of the truth. – Dr. Walter R. Hadwen, 1896
The only thing we have to fear is fear itself. – Franklin D. Roosevelt, 1933
Fear. It’s a natural and primal human emotion. While human instinct is exceptional in evaluating and reacting to a natural personal risk, as in facing a predator, humans are terrible at assessing modern risks. According to Psychology Today  this is because our ancestors were programmed to quickly react and respond to a situation before it is even consciously perceived. Our reactions aren’t based in logic and statistics, but in lightning fast primitive responses. Threats such as venomous spiders and snakes  cause an out of proportion fear compared with the more likely threat of being killed in a car crash . The low risk of a being killed in a shark attack  evokes more terror than the much greater chance of dying from a prescription drug . (Spider and snake bites kill approximately 13 people a year and shark attacks kill 1 person every 2 years in the United States; there were 32,719 deaths in motor vehicle crashes in 2013 and 38,329 people died from a drug overdose in 2010 the United States.)
Vaccines in America have evolved well beyond science into religious dogma. Like religious dogma, vaccine dogma is based on fear--fear of the Hell of disease and our desire to be saved from it. The “science” supporting this religious dogma cannot be questioned any more than the Holy Word can be questioned at an evangelical tent revival.
This dogmatism is easy to see in any argument on social media between a vaccine skeptic and a vaccine supporter who harbors no doubts about the safety and efficacy of the 19th Century medical procedure known as vaccines. Arguing with a True Believer is exactly like arguing with a religious fanatic. The fanatic does not want or need facts, science based or otherwise.
What is needed to turn the tide? The tide is turned on a personal level when your child or a child close to you becomes a victim of vaccines.
The tide on a social level will unfortunately require more injury, more death, more stripping of medical freedom and autonomy. As injury and death increase, a tipping point will eventually be reached, the Overton Window will shift, and vaccine policy will become open for debate.
That's what happened in 19th Century England when Jenner's smallpox vaccine, made from scrapings of cow pus, caused so much injury and death that there were riots in the streets of London against forced smallpox vaccinations. A Royal Commission was established in wake of the riots and eventually recommended that the required vaccination law be overturned in 1898 with passage of a “Conscience Clause.”
Until that kind of social shift happens, all the whistle blowers in the world, including Dr. Thompson, will have no lasting or significant effect. There have been several Dr. Thompsons in the past. As recently as 2012, in an interview with Truthout’s Martha Rosenberg, former FDA drug reviewer, Ronald Cavanagh, exposed the FDA as a relentless criminal mafia protecting its client, Big Pharma, with a host of mob strategies. Earlier equivalents of William Thompson were J. Anthony Morris and Bernice Eddy. Ever heard of them either?
The stages of the Overton Window are:
It's pretty clear where we are now on that scale as a society in our ability to debate vaccine science and safety. One of the major factors keeping us in the "Unthinkable" and "Radical" range is that vaccines are also consciously, methodically being made into a monolithic and powerful political ideology.
An ideology becomes political when it has its own:
***1. System of Law.
The basis of this system for vaccines is the matrix of state laws that mandate all or parts of the CDC recommended schedule, the 1986 NVICP Act, and the 2001 SCOTUS decision. The recent efforts in states like California to eliminate exemptions for children and increase mandates for adults are attempts to extend a system of laws to support "vaccinism"--the ideology of vaccines.
By Anne Dachel
Below is a link to an interview by Mary Kay Elloian, Attorney and Policy Analyst, with Mary Holland, Research Scholar and Director, Graduate Lawyering Program New York University School of Law and co-author of Vaccine Epidemic, from June on "The Legal Edition"
This could not have come at a better time. Mary is a legal scholar, an author and someone I'm very proud to know.
In this half hour interview Mary explains what's happening in the most heated controversy in pediatric medicine: the safety of vaccines.
Included are details about the measles outbreak in Disneyland, the push to end exemptions, medical freedom and the loss of informed consent.
She makes it clear that it's not just about the science. There are endless conflicts of interest due to the power and influence of the drug industry over our health officials and lawmakers. The government knows what vaccines are doing to our children and they're actively covering it up. She talks about Simpsonwood, Dr. Julie Gerberding and Merck, Dr. William Thompson, Dr. Poul Thorsen, and the industry money that is influencing state legislators.
Mary sees this Whistleblower story as the light at the end of the tunnel. Falsifying official study results can't be covered up. We will hear the truth about the damage that has been done to a generation of children.
"This will be blown up. This will not stay static. That's impossible. How it blows up is yet to be seen, but this is an area where there will be, I believe, enormous change over the next five years."

Nothing leads evil to its own destruction quicker than its own apparent success. It's how God leads the wicked to their demise.
Consider the slave-owning South prior to the American Civil War. A trickle of slaves, perhaps 1,000-5,000 were escaping each year (out of an estimated population of 3,000,000 slaves), beginning their lives in the North, and speaking freely of what they endured under the lash of their slave-masters.
The escaped slaves presented no existential threat to slavery. For those in the North who didn't quite know what to think about slavery, they were allowed to continue to exist in their state of uncertainty. Maybe slavery was good, maybe it was bad, but it was something that happened someplace else. They were not a part of it.
But that wasn't enough for the South. The escaped slaves drove them crazy. Just like the 1.5% of California schoolchildren who have a philosophical or religious exemption drive the pro-pharma forces crazy. You see, most doctors claim that even if you believe in the mythical concept of "herd immunity", it's somewhere around 90-93%. I'm not a math teacher, but even if you take 1.5% away from 100%, I calculate it at 98.5%. Check my math to see if I've got it right.
This Monday, the California Senate voted 24-14 in favor of SB 277, which would strip California parents of religious and philosophical exemptions to vaccines in order for their children to attend public school, something so draconian that even China and Russia have no similar laws. The measure is going to Governor Jerry Brown's desk for his signature. (As a footnote, Jerry Brown's father, Governor Pat Brown, signed the current parental exemptions into law in 1961. It's a great shame that yesterday's soulful, civil rights democrats have morphed into today's soul-less corporate democrats. Somebody needs to lead them back to their historic support of the rights of the individual.)
From SaneVax, a site founded by parents of girls injured by Gardasil and thrust into the vaccine safety debate.
By Norma Erickson
In March 2015, a Danish national television station (TV2) aired a documentary focusing on girls who suspected they had been injured by the HPV vaccine Gardasil. Immediately after the airing of the show, girls with similar experiences started coming out of the woodwork. Virtually all of the girls had the same story to tell.
They began to have serious new medical conditions shortly after using Gardasil so they would go to the doctor. According to Luise Juellund, the vast majority of doctors would tell them the HPV vaccine has no serious side effects and offer psychological problems as an alternative reason for the new symptoms.
Luise should know, her daughter is one of the seriously injured and cannot be left home alone because of daily seizures and hour-long periods of unconsciousness. After disclosing the new symptoms she was experiencing after Gardasil, she was referred for psychological evaluation. Psychiatrists cleared her and she has now been diagnosed with POTS (postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome) a suspected side effect of HPV vaccines.

It is time for us to write to Jason Chaffetz, the new Chair of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, to respectfully request that he move forward with holding hearings on Dr. William Thompson's admission that he participated in the cover up of links between vaccines and autism at the Centers for Disease Control.
We have learned from Dr. Thompson that a causal link between autism in black boys and the MMR vaccine, when given before age of three, was suppressed by CDC “higher-ups.” Through the use of a collection of unethical statistical tricks, these senior officials at CDC chose to publish “reassuring” findings when the honest result of their analysis showed clear links between early vaccination with MMR and autism risk, both in African American boys and children with “isolated” (meaning normal in all other respects) autism. Members of Congress have spent many months reviewing the documents that Dr. Thompson turned over, debating which committee had proper jurisdiction in the matter, and have settled on OGR. Now we begin the process of holding OGR to the task of investigating this 15-year-long national scandal in depth.
While Dr. Paul Offit sheds crocodile tears over pediatric health (aka lack of vaccine uptake), his vaccine, MERCK ROTATEQ, appears to cause infants to shed the very virus it is meant to prevent. From PubMed.
Pediatr Infect Dis J. 2015 Mar;34(3):296-8. doi: 10.1097/INF.0000000000000579.
Detection of vaccine-derived rotavirus strains in nonimmunocompromised children up to 3-6 months after RotaTeq® vaccination.
Markkula J1, Hemming M, Vesikari T.
We conducted a survey on the presence of RotaTeq vaccine viruses in infants hospitalized with respiratory infection, and detected shedding in 17% of children (<2 years of age) who had ever received the vaccine. The latest detection was at the age of 8 months. We conclude that asymptomatic long-time shedding of RotaTeq viruses is not uncommon, and is particularly associated with genotype G1.
The vaccine program is a disaster, kids are getting hurt, docs don't have to know anything about vaccines and we are left by ourselves to clean up the damage. Readers here know this well. Here is how it breaks down.
You got your one percent vaccine corruption, then you got your ninety nine percent ignorance and most of that is now willful ignorance.
(Seriously, the Polings went on CNN SEVEN YEARS AGO. To not know about the vaccine encephalopathy=autism discussion as a practicing pediatrician is willful ignorance.)
There are a hand full of corrupt bastards at the top of the vaccine industry (in both the public and private sectors, and the boundarylessness of the “public/private partnership") who have behaved very badly. They have lied about vaccine safety, they have covered up vaccine autism links, they have published phony research, and they have failed to tell the public about true vaccine risks. They are responsible for grievous harm to an entire generation of American Children.
But the thing is, they are actually a very small number of people. We talk about how vastly corrupt the vaccine program is, and it is vastly corrupt, but only the vaccine program “One Percenters” are actually generating the fraud. The rest of them are just propping it up by towing the “you must have 70 doses of 14 vaccines or the world will end,” line.
They are doing it because they are paid to do it, or because they take orders so they can keep working, or because they have been sold a line of bullshit that they are saving the world from “anti-vaxxers” who want to bring back disease, or because they simply don't want to get attacked for going against the flow. But the thing is, no matter why they are doing it, what they are actually doing is shielding Gerberding and DeStefano and Boyle and Yeargin-Allsopp and Insel and Thorsen and Insert RICO Eligible Name Here, from being put under oath and being cross examined under threat of perjury.
I want to scream, “WHY?! WHY ARE YOU ALLOWING YOURSELVES TO BE USED TO KEEP CRIMINALS OUT OF JAIL! WHY ARE YOU ALLOWING YOURSELVES TO BE LIED TO AND USED TO HARM YOUR OWN PATIENTS TO PROTECT THESE MONSTERS!”
The Vaccine One Percenters can't answer our questions... won't answer our questions... won't answer for their behavior... so they keep throwing people in between us and them to delay the inevitable. This most commonly now takes the form of, “Vaccines are safe. If you have questions, ask your pediatrician.” But of course when we ask our pediatricians the real questions, their answers are some version of:
1. I have no idea what you are talking about.
2. Well my choice is to vaccinate, so yours should be too.
By Ginger Taylor
(Note: SB277 passed the health committee 12-6 yesterday and moves forward.) For years and even decades a small group of us have been slaving away, day after day, to get the word out that the vaccine program is now a huge problem and that our kids have been victims of "the greater good." For years we have been calling out from the bottom of the large chasm that we have fallen into for others not to come this way, to stay of the dangerous path that we didn't know better than to follow. But it has been hard work as we have so few resources and become so removed from the mainstream because of our children's vaccine injuries, so only those very close to us could hear our cries.
But this year, you came through for us. Not since Evan McCarthy and Hannah Poling have we had such a huge advancement in our work and progress in getting out our message. Because you have made such boldly corrupt moves, and told such bold face lies, and made the most absurd arguments, we now have families in all parts of the American experience coming out of the woodwork to join us! And they have megaphones that we didn't have!
We now have soccer moms, and crunchy moms, and NASCAR dads, and political power players, and outspoken black leaders, and Hollywood beautiful people, and smart physicians, and rebel libertarians, and that dude at the grocery store that I have been going to for 9 years, and never spoken to more than, "Do you guys have any more lemon yerba mate tea in the back?" who said to me last week, "Hey... thanks for doing all the stuff on vaccines you have been doing. I had not felt good about them for a while..."
And today I just heard a mom with a perfectly healthy child tell the California Legislature, with a big loud megaphone, in front of at least a thousand other moms, "We are awake now, and we are never going back."
And I cried.
I am so, so tired. So broke. So empty. And you have sent me so many reinforcements. From the bottom of my heart thank you. Thank you.
Thank you to California Senator Dr. Richard Pan for telling such easily fact check-able lies about vaccines that people know you are a fraud and say things like, "That guy is a pediatrician?"
Thank you to Oregon Senator Dr. Elizabeth Steiner Hayward for being so arrogant and elitist that you actually admitted in a committee hearing, on camera that you think you should have medical choice for your baby and the peasants beneath you should not.
Thank you to Senator Jeff Tarte of North Carolina for being so mean and nasty that it was clear to everyone that you don't actually give a crap about families, and that your bill had nothing to do with the actual well being of children.
Thank you to Representative Ralph Tucker of my own town of Brunswick, Maine for offering nothing but fear based arguments, completely free of facts, so everyone could see that your bill was not even remotely relevant to reality.
Mothers across America carefully read food labels, avoiding non-food ingredients, pesticide-laden foods, and genetically-modified foods. They are returning to glass baby bottles to avoid toxic plastic ones, and they are learning to shun items laced with poisonous flame retardants. However, many have yet to learn about the dangers lurking in the 70 or so doses of vaccines they are allowing to be injected into their children, more if they allow vaccines while pregnant (in essence, beginning the vaccination process in utero for their child).
Mothers must be warned about and advised against the health-and-development-damaging ingredients in vaccines. It is up to those of us who know the disturbing and disgusting facts about vaccines to continue to expose the truth to help stop the poisoning of children.
What mother willingly poisons her own child? Only one that has been lied to. When a mother allows a doctor, nurse, or pharmacist to vaccinate her child, she is allowing that person to poison her child. Think that’s too strong a statement? Think I’m exaggerating?
What mother would allow lead to be injected into her child? Answer: none. They know it would cause brain damage. However, millions of mothers across America are allowing doctors to inject mercury and aluminum into their children, both of which are severely neurotoxic (mercury many more times so than lead…and yes, mercury is still in vaccines given to infants and children, in addition to those given to pregnant women). To make matters worse, mercury and aluminum are synergistically neurotoxic, meaning that when they are given together, as is often done during vaccination, their individual toxicity is made far worse by the presence of the other, many times worse. Interestingly, we are seeing record numbers of children with brain damage in our country. Coincidence?
By Scott Laster, Communications Director, Foundation For Pediatric Health
The Foundation For Pediatric Health (FFPH) is highlighting the fact that the CDC hasn't studied the first-year vaccines (particularly Hib and HepB) to compare autism rates in children who received vs didn't receive these vaccines. (Click photo to increase size.)
FFPH has conducted a review of the studies listed on the "Vaccines Do Not Cause Autism” page of the CDC website, as well as other studies that have been performed, and concluded that none of the studies compared autism rates in a group that was vaccinated with Hib or HepB to the rate in a group that did not receive these vaccines.
Since these studies have not been performed, parents should have the right to choose on vaccination. FFPH issued a challenge letter to California Senators Pan and Allen to produce just one study of Hib or HepB vaccine that compares autism in vaccinated versus unvaccinated that finds no association. FFPH also sent a letter to each of the California Assembly Members to point out that Senators Pan and Allen have not responded to the challenge.
The CDC is disingenuous in boldly claiming on its website that “Vaccines Do Not Cause Autism.” A quick review of their referenced studies clearly shows that most vaccines have not been studied by the CDC for an association with autism. Why haven’t the other vaccines been studied? Dr. William Thompson, a senior CDC vaccine researcher who invoked whistleblower status in 2014 and provided evidence to Congress that the CDC intentionally hid data showing a link between vaccines and autism in the MMR and thimerosal studies, stated about further research: “[CDC researchers] are not doing what they should be doing because they’re afraid to look for things that might be associated [with autism].” The CDC has no credibility on the vaccine-autism studies they’ve performed, and no credibility on their implication that all vaccines have been studied.
If the Hib vaccine or HepB vaccine causes autism, then the risk of the vaccine is quantitatively higher than the risk of injury or death from the disease prior to vaccine introduction. See FFPH one-pager talking points for more details.

Last summer a reporter I had never heard of from the Portland Press Herald called me about vaccine stuff. I started with my standard, “First of all I am not anti-vaccine. I vaccinated my children and one of them got hurt...” thing. Then he interviewed me for an hour and I got to discuss all the corruption problems at length. Seemed like an OK interview. But as is the reality of our world, the hack, Joe Lawlor, turned out to be a poor man's Mnookin, and “Ginger Taylor, an anti-vaccineadvocate from Brunswick...” Cut to two weeks later and look who is sitting on a dais with Paul Offit at the National Press Club being held out as an example of exactly how to journalize right on vaccination. After writing ONE story on vaccination. (Lawler is the new Offiteer on the beat... will he soar like Seth “I hate my mother' Mnookin to teach science journalism at MIT or become he head of a media strategy group serving Eli Lilly and GSK like Trine “Cupcake” Tsouderos ... stay tuned and find out.)
There have been half a dozen propaganda pieces by Lawlor since then, all working to get people excited about the HUGE new opportunity we have to get rid of measles in Maine by restricting vaccine exemptions. Well, I mean, there hasn't been a measles case in Maine in 18 years, so we are not so much trying to get rid of Measles as much as we hope that removing the rights of parents will help us achieve negative measles in Maine. That way if we still get a few cases of measles, we can still have no measles. You have to stay hyper vigilant, you know. Measles is only a tea cup ride away.
So we had a bit of a heads up that this was coming, but we didn't know it would be national and move through the country like a blitzkrieg. But with Posey announcing the #CDCwhistleblower investigation, clearly we should have expected it.
In December I was reading yet another one of Lawlor's propaganda pieces and thought, “Where's the consumer protection?!” Then ran to my desk and whipped out a bill that I thought would give Mainer's a fighting chance of protecting and helping their vaccine injured and vulnerable kids, will full awareness that I didn't have a clue as to how to write a bill or what the hell I was doing, other than trying to fill the gaps that tens of thousands of our children had fallen into. And keep falling into every day.
Then I began step two... begging the few legislators I knew from the Ron Paul Wars of 2012 to introduce it. Lucky me, I found five of them, and they found someone else. I love Rep. Beth O'Connor, and I am not ashamed to say it.

As parents fight bills circulating around state houses calling for the removal of exemptions to vaccines, it is important to remember that no one in state government is ultimately responsible for dealing with vaccine injuries. If a child is injured by a vaccine that law-makers like California Senator Richard Pan insists they must take, the only avenue of relief available is the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP). The very title of this federal program flies in the face of statements made by Pan who has claimed that the term ‘vaccine injury’ was invented by the anti-vaccine opposition.
States considering the removal of vaccine exemptions, take notice: Vaccine Injury is real. And your tax payers are footing the cost.
Vaccine injury is so real that a federal program has to deal with it. Congress passed The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act in 1986. The Act established the NVICP, the Division of Vaccine Injury Compensation (DVIC) and the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), among other things. Congress created a no-fault compensation system to get pharmaceutical companies off the hook for vaccine injury claims and, hopefully, to create safer vaccines. They also sought to compensate those injured by vaccines because tort law describes vaccines as “unavoidably unsafe.”
Legislators like Pan assert that vaccines are completely safe and effective. If this were so, the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act would not have been necessary. Asserting that vaccines never cause injuries actually undermines the protections that the federal government has granted vaccine manufacturers. Perhaps it is time for Congress to rescind the 1986 Act and let the industry prove that vaccines are completely safe in a civil court setting where litigants would have discovery, where Pharma would have to produce documents and where people like Paul Offit might have to take the stand and explain their conflicts of interests to a jury.
But giving families the right to sue vaccine manufacturers is not the deal being offered to parents. What’s offered is the removal of the fundamental right to look after the interests of their children.
States know that the National vaccine Injury Compensation Program is the only option that families of the vaccine injured have. When a person is compensated, states often seek to recover the money they have spent on the vaccine injured by placing a Medicaid lien on the case. This is often a significant amount of money, as in this case :
“A lump sum of $450,400.89, representing compensation for satisfaction of the State of Florida Medicaid lien, in the form of a check payable jointly to Petitioners and Agency for Health Care Administration Florida TPL Recovery Unit
From our friends at ChildHealthSafety in the UK: Tell The Director, Christian Medical College, “Release Rotavirus Vaccine Trial Data”
Rotavirus vaccine is given to children to interrupt the circulation of the rotavirus to prevent diahorrea. In developed western economies this is not a killer disease. The vaccine is part of a programme directed to eradication of the virus. Your child gets the vaccine because some anonymous officials have decided they don’t want to develop a proper treatment. They want to be heroes and claim the credit for eradicating a disease which is no threat to your child or any child in your entire country. It does not seem to matter who gets in the way. That your healthy child is put at risk of death on the way somehow does not seem important to some of them. That larger numbers of third world economy children are put at risk also seems not so important – just as long as no one identifies and names those concerned as pushing a killer vaccine.
Rotavirus vaccine causes some children’s intestine to fold into or collapse into itself. This is called intussusception. It is dangerous and a killer. It seems that many if not all rotavirus vaccines have this problem. So if you are in a developed western country you have every right to insist 1) your child is not given a rotavirus vaccine and 2) those who push the vaccines develop effective treatments instead for the very few who might have a problem with the virus.

Thank you for having given me the opportunity to address the California Senate Judiciary Committee on April 28, 2015 regarding Senate Bill 277 to restrict childhood vaccination exemptions to medical ones alone. I promised to revert to you regarding California law on informed consent; I do so now, and seek to clarify my comments regarding enforcement, should SB 277 become law.
California law fully embraces the doctrine of informed consent to medical decision-making. The California Supreme Court has upheld the doctrine of informed consent and the right to refuse nonconsensual invasions of bodily integrity in Thor v. Superior Court, 5 Cal. 4th 725 (1993). There, the unanimous Court reviewed the federal common law and California precedents on bodily integrity and self-determination, noting, “we respect human dignity by granting individuals the freedom to make choices in accordance with their own values.” Id. at 737. Thor regards the right of a prisoner to refuse life-sustaining treatment. The Court notes that there are countervailing considerations in determining the scope of autonomy, including protecting innocent third parties. Id. at 738. In that case, however, the Court found no compelling countervailing reasons and required that the prison respect the inmate’s desire to refuse medical treatment. Many courts have cited the case with approval since.
As a writer I’ve always held to a simple standard of whether somebody has written a great book. Ask people who’ve read the story what they think. Everything else is just marketing. By that measure, the book I co-wrote with Dr. Judy Mikovits, PLAGUE: One Scientist’s Intrepid Search for the Truth About Human Retroviruses, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS), Autism, and Other Diseases is the best book written about viruses in the past twenty years.
Looking at the top books similar to PLAGUE in the virology section of Amazon and having at least 10 customer reviews these are the rankings based on a system of 5 stars. I think you'll be surprised at how well PLAGUE does against some popular books and authors.
PLAGUE – By Kent Heckenlively and Judy Mikovits (2014) – 69 reviews – 4.9 stars
THE HOT ZONE – By Richard Preston (1995) – 1,704 reviews – 4.6 stars
EBOLA – By David Quammen (2014) – 68 reviews – 4.3 stars

Below is a story that is a somber reminder of why we fight for vaccination choice. Vaccines carry serious risks. Regardless of the reason for this medical tragedy - if we ever know, was it tainted product, a deadly combination or something else, we believe parents should have the right to say no to a vaccine for their child. And that pharmaceutical companies should bear liability.
From CNN, although many media outlets are reporting the story. Our condolences to the families whose kids were injured or died.
(CNN) Mexican health officials are investigating after two babies died and 29 children were hospitalized from suspected adverse reactions to shots from the country's national vaccination program.
Six of the children hospitalized in the southern Mexican state of Chiapas remain in serious condition, the Mexican Social Security Institute said on Sunday.
The parents of the two infants who died were so outraged at the government that they refused to let authorities perform autopsies, CNNMexico reported.
The illnesses were reported after 52 children from the rural mining community of La Pimienta were given vaccines Friday for tuberculosis, rotavirus and Hepatitis B, the institute said. Later that night, 31 of the children "presented adverse reactions presumably associated with the application of these vaccines," officials said. Two of the children later died.
