The Defender Reports That Dr. Offit Is Back in The Saddle

Offit_blogThe Real Dr. Paul Offit Is Back!

Mary Holland JD, President of Children's Health Defense and autism Mother warrior herself  wrote this piece in Children's Health Defense's "The Defender." We know Dr. Offit all too well. Understatement of the millenium. In fact, the first time many AofA'ers met RFK, Jr. was at Autism One, when he spoke about Dr. Offit and presented a challenge to debate, if memory recollects.

###

During COVID-19, Dr. Paul Offit momentarily became something of a skeptic, telling media outlets he wouldn’t get a COVID-19 booster and wouldn’t recommend it. Now, he’s back to recommending the vaccines for infants as young as 6 months old.

Dr. Paul Offit is a familiar figure to most Defender readers — he’s been pushing vaccines for decades, especially to children.

Vaccine inventor, pharma spokesperson, adviser to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention — and vociferous denier of vaccine harms — that’s Paul Offit in a nutshell.

During COVID-19, Dr. Offit surprised me. He momentarily became something of a skeptic. In June 2022, he stated he wasn’t going to take a COVID-19 booster and wouldn’t recommend it.

He told the press that the boosters were “grossly oversold” and voted against them in an FDA vaccine advisory panel. In July 2022, he gave an interview to ZDoggMD during which he speculated that the Biden administration had pressured the panel and that “the fix was in,” suggesting there might be corruption at work.

Whatever Dr. Offit’s misgivings, he’s now back to his old self, promoting a new book, out Feb. 13: “Tell Me When it’s Over: An Insider’s Guide to Deciphering COVID Myths and Navigating Our Post-Pandemic World.”

In this Substack post to promote the book, he hyped COVID-19 shots to infants as young as 6 months.

Dr. Offit rues that only 4% of parents with children younger than age 4 have given them COVID-19 shots. He then recommends the vaccines by suggesting that children are suffering from severe COVID-19 disease, that the vaccines are effective in young children and that they are safe.

His post offers no scientific references whatsoever. It’s just, “trust me, I’m Dr. Offit.”

RFK, Jr. Chronic Disease is The Greatest Crisis of Our Time."

Children futureNote: We have plenty to worry about, from national security, to the economy to social issues. Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. has been a champion for children's health for decades. Many of us first met him (in wonderment, if you want the truth) at Autism One. We've seen "celebrities" come and go regarding pediatric issues, including the V-erboten one. Anne wrote up a portion of RFK Jr.'s interview for AofA. You know we don't endorse candidates. But we can say this, we WILL be watching to see if either former President Donald Trump or President Joe Biden make ANY mention of the dismal state of kids' health and it's impact on our future as a nation.

###

On Feb 17th, Robert Kennedy, Jr. was interviewed on To the Point on WOOD TV, Grand Rapids, MI. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NOBJCmVUrrk

Kennedy explained that the chronic disease epidemic is “the greatest crisis of our time.” He cited not only the autism epidemic, but also the obesity epidemic, the juvenile diabetes epidemic, and the food allergies epidemic to name only a few of the conditions making our children the sickest in the world.

And yes, vaccines are among the culprits Kennedy cites. 

4:34

Kennedy: We have a chronic disease epidemic in this country. That makes us the sickest country in the world: of autoimmune diseases, of allergies, peanut allergies, food allergies, eczema, asthma, and neurological diseases, ADD, ADHD, speech delay, language delay, ticks, autism and obesity.

There is no other country in the world that is as sick as us and nobody’s asking the question, why are our kids the sickest in the world?

Why did we have the highest death rate from COVID of any country on Earth? We had 16 percent of the COVID deaths. We only have 4.2 percent of the world’s population. 

If you ask CDC that question, what they’d say is that’s because Americans have the highest burden of chronic disease in the world.

We’re the sickest, and it’s costing us $4.3 trillion a year just to treat chronic disease. 

Our military budget is $1.3 trillion. . . . 

The cost of disease is sinking us, and we know what’s causing it. There’s a limited number of exposures. It has to be an environmental exposure. 

Congress asked EPA, what year did the autism epidemic begin?

Why did it go from one in 10,000 in my generation? Seventy year old men, one in 10,000 have full-blown autism, one in 34 of my kids’ generation. Congress said to EPA, tell us what year that  happened. 

EPA said 1989. It’s a red line. Well that year, that period, all these other autoimmune: juvenile diabetes— Juvenile diabetes now affects 30 percent of our children are either diabetic or pre-diabetic. When I was a kid, a pediatrician would see one diabetic kid in his entire career.

Now it’s one out of every three kids who walk into his office.

This is the greatest crisis of our time.

Why is no other candidate talking about this?

Kennedy was asked why that is.

It happened because of an environmental exposure. Genes don’t cause epidemic. It has to be an environmental toxin, and there’s a very famous toxicologist called Phil Landrigan who’s looked at the timeline and said, you need a toxin that was ubiquitous across the entire, every demographic in America from Cubans in Key Biscayne to Inuit in Alaska.

It all hit at the same time, and he’s come up with about thirteen possibilities, and most of these are substances that I’ve litigated against: glyphosate from Roundup, neonicotinoid pesticides, atrazine, which is now in almost all of our water supply. 

High fructose corn syrup clearly is linked to the obesity epidemic, the diabetes epidemic in kids.  

The vaccine schedule you mentioned exploded from the three vaccines I had as a kid to the 72, and all of those injuries are listed as potential side effects on the manufacturer’s inserts of those products, so that has to be one of the culprits. 

Cell phone radiation—there’s a limited number of them. The point is, it’s easy to study, but NIH will not do those studies because it’s frightened of offending the food industry, the processed food, the big agriculture, the pharmaceutical industry, the chemical industry. Those are all very powerful players, and nobody wants to get on their wrong side. 

So we’re letting our country just sicken.

Ginger Taylor, In Many Words

When words are many, transgression is not lacking, so please forgive my transgressions as I discuss current events, politics, corruption, health policy, and vaccines, through the lens of the Gospel.

When the Bottom Falls Out

You have an opportunity that only comes around a few times in a lifetime.

A dear friend had a horrible experience this week. One of those where the worldly supports you have always relied on are suddenly yanked out from under you and you are slammed into emotional free fall.

They happen to all of us eventually. What you believed to be true was a lie, the doctor’s call to deliver the diagnosis, the police at the door, the divorce papers show up, the judge slams the gavel, your child takes their last breath, a lifetime of work goes up in flames… no matter the form it takes, reality becomes dark, hope in what was to come is gone in a flash, and the inability to even get your bearings is replaced either numbness or a flood of barely manageable emotions.

Free Fall.

In these miserable, and fortunately rare, panic inducing occurrences in life, what we rarely recognize in the moment is that we are also entering into an opportunity that we only get a few times in a lifetime.

The chance to trust God completely.

There is a kindness in those terrible moments when we are suddenly falling and have nothing to grab onto, because our only option is to call out to Christ for salvation and rescue. To yield everything to him, body and soul. To enter into a moment when the world falls away and grows dim, and all that there is, is you and God himself.

These are moments that hold the potential for great transformation, sanctification, and even miracles themselves. Our natural inclination for self-preservation instinctually and instantly cries, “NO!” and the move from there, into “OK God, not my will, but your will,” is the antithesis of our fleshly programming and human nature. Even a baby, suddenly feeling a dropping sensation, will shoot out their arms to reflexively preserve himself. God calls us to do the opposite. To relax into the fall, and allow him to catch us and put us where HE wants us.

TWO WOMEN DROPPED OUT OF THE SKY

Two of the most powerful scenes in film for me are both of women falling from the sky. The first was one that I experienced re-watching The Incredibles when we bought the home video around 2007.

In this scene Elastigirl, a dedicated, loving and wise mother who is in the process of trying to help her husband, care for her children, and fight an emerging evil of which she has become aware, is flying to a suspect island, finding that her children have stowed away on the plane.

Missiles are launched at the plane and she begins evasive maneuvers, eventually pleading over the radio, “Disengage! There are children on board!”

The evil, of course, does not care that children will be sacrificed for the sake of it’s plan, and may even relish it, blowing the plane out of the sky. Mother is rendered unconscious and awakens falling through the sky with her screaming children. All she can do is pull her children under her wing and try to soften their landing.

I had forgotten this scene in the movie, and by the time it was over, I had to remove myself quietly to my bedroom so that my young children would not see mom ugly crying into her pillow and trying to get a hold of herself.

If there was ever a metaphor for what mothers of injured children go through fighting the pharmaceutical industry, and the personification of evil itself, for me it is this scene. We go in a bit naive, and we do not suspect that we are fighting ancient evils that enjoy devouring the most innocent among us.

This scene of a strong woman with superpowers still unable to use her special abilities to prevent the crash of her family, is contrasted with another character’s ability to turn violence into peace through faith.... Read the rest of Ginger's Substack HERE.

Rockland County NY Settles Lawsuit Over Emergency Order That Discriminated Against Healthy Children During Measles Outbreal

Note: This is big news below, from Children's Health Defense. Measles is back in the news, generating fear to increase MMR uptake. One New York county is going to pay three quarters of a million dollars in a settlement for prohibiting HEALTHY children, who did not have MMR vaccine compliance, from school. The only way to affect change is to hit the pockets. Thank you to CHD for leading the way toward health freedom. Subscribe to The Defender today.

A New York County Pays $750,000 to Families Whose Unvaccinated Kids Were Barred From School During Measles Outbreak

Rockland County’s 2019 emergency order prohibited children without measles vaccinations, including those with religious exemptions, from attending school or visiting public places for months. The county settled with parents who sued county officials for unlawfully ignoring their children’s religious exemptions.

Families who sued a New York county and two public officials over a 2019 emergency order banning their unvaccinated children from public spaces during a measles outbreak late last week have reached a settlement, just days before going to trial.

Rockland County’s 2019 emergency order prohibited children without measles vaccinations, including those with religious exemptions, from attending school or visiting public places for months, following a measles outbreak in the region.

Michael Sussman, the attorney representing the families, told The Defender Rockland County will provide $750,000 to the plaintiffs, “to be distributed by us as we choose to do so.”

The case was sent to a jury trial in November 2022 after the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, in a unanimous decision, overturned a lower court’s finding that Rockland County public health authorities were justified in issuing the emergency order.

Sixteen families of children affected by the emergency order sued Rockland County, the county’s executive and its health commissioner in April 2019, alleging the order was “motivated by animus against religion.” The families said the order violated the Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment.

The jury trial in the case was set to begin today in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.

According to Sussman, there was no indication Rockland County was ready to settle until late last week. He described the settlement as “a good result” for the plaintiffs.

“I thought the county acted responsibly in taking the case seriously because it involves serious rights,” Sussman said.

In an email, Mary Holland, Children’s Health Defense (CHD) president & CEO, told The Defender:

“The ‘measles epidemic’ that unfolded in 2018-19 in Brooklyn and Rockland County, New York, was the forerunner of the 2020 ‘COVID pandemic.’

“Intense media fear-mongering laid the groundwork for unlawful expulsion of unvaccinated children from schools — who had lawful religious exemptions — and lockdowns.

“After a long legal journey, Rockland County has de facto apologized — to the tune of $750,000 — to the families that the county treated wrongly. CHD is proud to have offered support to the families and lawyers in the case.”

CHD provided support to the plaintiffs and their legal counsel in this lawsuit.

Plaintiffs who spoke with The Defender said they are satisfied with the settlement.

New from Skyhorse Publishing. By Senator Rand Paul

Senator Rand Paul was on to Anthony Fauci from the start. Wielding previously unimaginable power, Fauci misled the country about the origins of the Covid pandemic and shut down scientific dissent.


One of the few leaders who dared to challenge "America’s Doctor" was Senator Rand Paul, himself a physician. Deception is his indictment of the catastrophic failures of the public health bureaucracy during the pandemic.

Senator Paul presents the evidence that:
  • The Covid virus was likely the product of gain-of-function research at the Wuhan lab in China—research funded in part by the U.S. government.
  • Taxpayer dollars for that research were deceptively funneled to Wuhan without the required regulatory review.
  • Fauci and his scientific yes-men knew from day one about Covid’s origin and tried to cover it up.
  • Fauci and his allies ruthlessly attacked everyone—including highly qualified scientists—who threatened to reveal the truth about the pandemic.
Why? Hundreds of millions of dollars of grants and unreported royalties were at stake, and heads would roll if the truth got out.

It almost worked. At Fauci’s insistence, the government imposed needlessly extreme lockdowns on Americans at the cost of immense personal and economic destruction.

Covid-19 was deadly, but the real killer was the coverup, led by America’s most durable medical bureaucrat—a man for whom the truth was too often expendable.

Senator Paul makes a powerful case that funding dangerous bioengineering in a totalitarian country is madness. If we don’t heed this warning, the next pandemic could be far worse.

No Greater Love

7BF1CB61-BF73-4EA8-9150-3278B2A050EA

Today, I'll wear my heart on my sleeve. There’s no greater love than what I have witnessed in the autism parenting community. If your child has Down Syndrome, Cancer, Cerebral Palsy, Cystic Fibrosis, Spina Bifida, Muscular Dystrophy or anything other than autism - you have a medical community ready to embrace and help you, you  have religious institutions planning potlucks and GoFundMes. Ronald McDonald House and St. Jude are there to serve you. You get gentle looks in public. Friends and family try to help - even if they fail.  Not so with autism. We do this backbreaking, heartbreaking work alone, desperately trying to make the right choices for our children. Meds? ABA? Early Intervention? Biomed? Spelling? PECS? AAC? At home? Group home? General ed? Contained classroom? And in adulthood? You start from scratch again with far fewer supports than when your child was school age. We are BEASTS for our kids.

So, on this St. Valentine's Day 2024, from all of us at Age of Autism, we SEE you. We LOVE you. We ARE you.

Here's to avoiding the red dye!

Med Schools Not Preparing Doctors for Autism

DuhNote: I beg to differ with the MedPage article Anne presents. Medical schools are educating their students perfectly, 100% about autism. "It's not caused by vaccines."  Ta da! That's all they need to know. The actual CARE of individuals, aw, just leave that to the parents, the schools, the non-medical therapist.

By Anne Dachel

I recently found an absolutely bizarre story that proves how little the  medical establishment cares about autism and what it’s doing to children.

On February 7th Med Page Today published a piece entitled, Medical Schools Are Not Preparing Us to Care for Autistic Individuals— It's time for that to change

The gist of the article, written by two people in the medical profession, is that doctors AREN’T BEING TRAINED TO DEAL WITH AUTISTIC PATIENTS; REFORM IS NEEDED.

The authors were Reeda Iqbal, a medical student at Georgetown School of Medicine and Sherab Tsheringla, MD, MBBS, a child and adolescent psychiatry resident at the Yale School of Medicine.

Those are some pretty impressive places, and one would expect that top notch schools like Georgetown and Yale would have cutting edge training in something affecting one in every 36 U.S. children, one in every 22 boys.

Sadly, that is not the case.

One of the authors has a severely autistic sibling and for her, it’s a personal issue.

When I entered medical school, I quickly learned that there are important gaps in autism medical education. A 2019 study demonstrated that medical students report low knowledge of ASD, and more than 90% of students cite inadequate preparation for caring for individuals with autism. Medical students also report a greater need for increased education and training in ASD care. …

It does not help that 77% of primary care physicians rate their ability to care for an autistic adult as poor or fair. It is clear that our current medical system is not equipped to care for autistic individuals and their families.

The authors call for more training for doctors-to-be on all aspects of autism.

First, it is important for medical students to understand the heterogeneous symptom presentation of autism, including the different communication styles and sensory sensitivities that exist….

Second, for patients with profound autism, medical students can receive training on behavioral strategies that can be used to address behaviors that are challenging. …

Third, medical students should learn about the different co-occurring conditions associated with autism. …

Clearly Iqbal and Tsheringla accept autism as just part of the human condition. The rate of one in 36 children doesn’t set off alarm bells for them.

Their only concern is that doctors need to be better schooled in autism.

Utterly absurd

Several comments in the article show that they are not interested in doing anything to address autism as the epidemic is clearly is.

As autism prevalence continues to rise, it is increasingly likely that medical students will encounter and care for a patient with ASD.

Those are the code words for NO REAL INCREASE that officials have chanted nonstop for two decades.

The prevalence of autism is increasing, but never the incidence.

Iqbal and Tsheringla are part of the medical community that has unabashedly taken credit for each and every leap higher in the official autism rate.

How is it possible that doctors could have done that if they currently know nothing about autism? Neither of them address this.

Iqbal and Tsheringla write: “…one in three people with autism have profound autism…”

Doesn’t that seem to be an incredible statistic? IF a third of the one in 36 children with autism have severe autism, shouldn’t doctors have figured out what autism is years ago?

The truth is, doctors, along with health officials, have remained clueless about autism on purpose.

IF autism is affecting more and more children, something is causing it. Something has to be done to stop it. The possibility that this is an iatrogenic condition resulting from their childhood vaccine schedule never goes away.

No, the medical playbook will never recognize autism as a crisis. It’s a permanent puzzle, a curiosity we have all the time in the world to figure out.

Iqbal and Tsheringla are fine with the autism rate as it is, and they’ll probably be just as accepting when it’s one in 25 and then one in 20.

The ending of the piece proves my point.

As a first-year medical student, I am often told I am the future of medicine. As a sibling of an autistic individual, I believe it is critical that we enhance the training of future physicians to become competent providers for autistic patients.

Patients with autism deserve to be treated with the highest quality of care. Promoting greater inclusivity and neurodiversity means greater input from the neurodivergent community about how they want their care needs to be met, and building a healthcare system that can respond with humility and adroitness. This begins with the implementation of autism medical education at all medical schools, including my own. Next time I go to the doctor with my sister, I hope that her doctor will be knowledgeable, accepting, and prepared to provide the best care.

That’s the goal: “greater inclusivity and neurodiversity.”

I Believe the Words You’re Looking for are, “Thank You”

Measles 2024Note: Julie Obradovic wrote this post for us back during the Great Measles Scare of 2015, nine years ago. She details the harrowing agony her daughter endured and the screams she will never forget.  Her 2016 memoir An Unfortunate Coincidence from Skyhorse Publishing shares the full story. EVERY expectant mother should read this, and certainly every parent of an infant. Instead of pillorying us for speaking out, Julie is right, the words only words are "thank you."

We'll be trotting out many pieces from our catalog as measles is weaponized to cajole American families to make pharmaphilic choices, despite their better judgement.

On November 15, 2002, we went out to celebrate my husband’s birthday. My aunt had kindly offered to watch our two children for us while we celebrated. It was generous of her to do so, and we gratefully took her up on it. We had a wonderful evening…. until we returned.

She was standing in the hallway just coming down from the stairs of our split level home as we entered around 1 a.m. Even though it was dark, her face was clear as day, not displaying a good expression. If anything, she looked as if she had just witnessed a horrible tragedy.

Immediately, without asking us about our evening, she urged us to go upstairs and check on our daughter. According to her, our baby girl had let out a scream unlike she had ever heard only moments before. She truly thought someone had entered the house and stabbed her. She was just about to call 9-1-1.

After racing upstairs, she scooped her up out of the crib still mid scream. The way she described it, our daughter was screaming so hard and so violently that she couldn’t breathe, her face red with excruciating pain, arching her back as if to fall back into the crib the whole time. 

Eventually, she stopped, but not in a normal way. She collapsed in my aunt’s arms, as if to pass out. Although still breathing, she wouldn’t wake. My aunt feared she was dying.

Right then, we got home.

Because I didn’t hear the scream, something I have only heard in my dreams since, I couldn’t gauge the seriousness of what had happened accurately. I knew my aunt was the last person to over-react, and given her panic, I realized something was very wrong. We ran upstairs to find our daughter just as she had left her, appearing to be sleeping peacefully in her crib.

I called her pediatrician immediately. She had been suffering from repeated and chronic ear infections for over 14 months at that time, at least 11 at our last count, and had been on at least that many rounds of antibiotics, each one a stronger, harsher version than the next, none of which ever did anything to alleviate them. 

In fact, her gums, her lips, her vagina, and her butt were covered in yeast as a result, and patches of eczema were popping up on her elbow and knee creases as well (something that finally cleared with an antifungal).

I suspected she had another ear infection, which often made her cry at night, and tried not to worry too much. I also tried to calm my aunt who said she knew what a baby crying from ear pain sounded like, and this was not it. She was adamant we go to the hospital.

When the doctor finally called back, he believed it was likely ear pain too, given her history. He told us to give her some pain reliever (aka, Tylenol), and to bring her to the office in the morning. If anything else happened, we were to go to the emergency room, but he didn’t believe it was worthy of a trip right then.

Because over a year’s worth of my instinct that something was seriously wrong with her had been repeatedly dismissed by my pediatricians, and twice, I had been criticized for it, I chose to obey the doctor’s orders. I was tired of being made to feel like I was a bad mom by wanting to do other than what they said.

My aunt was upset. 

She offered to stay overnight with our son if we would just go. She offered to go with me if my husband wanted to stay home. She pleaded. She begged. 

And when I finally promised to take her first thing in the morning, she reluctantly got her coat and said in a way she had never spoken to me before, “I have been a mother for 30 years. I was an aunt to you and all of your cousins. I have been around children and babies my whole life. I am telling you, Julie Ann, I have never heard a baby scream like that. Something is wrong.”

Swerve

CautionBy Cathy Jameson

One of Ronan’s sisters and I headed toward the mountains last weekend.  We got to visit Ronan’s younger brother for the day, starting with meeting him in town for Mass.  What a glorious day it was!  I had hoped to take Ronan with us, but Willem hadasked if I’d go to the movies with him after church and lunch.  Ronan has been to the theatre several times, but he likes to leave almost as soon as he gets there.  I didn’t want to risk Ronan being bored out of his mind, so we girls left while the fellas stayed home.  

We ended up not going to the movies but got to explore parts of the town.  Then we enjoyed a sunny afternoon on campus.  One of my son’s college friends joined us for the walk, and then many other of his friends sat with us for dinner.  I love that they gather for meals together and that they’ve become a positive support system for each other. 

My son is thriving, and I am grateful for that.  

Even though it was just a few hours, we crammed in a lot of visiting that day.  We got to talk about school, video projects Willem’s working on, and getting ready for the next round of scholarships he needs to apply to.  It was such a good day!  Ididn’t want to leave, but before it got too dark, we said our goodbyes until next time before heading to the car. Right before we got to the parking lot, I got a work email that I had to answer.  After answering it, I had to send a bunch of emails and texts to co-workers.  I don’t work on site on weekends, but I still have to pay attention to messages coming in, especially when they affectour program.  So, I answered as many messages as I could.  

My daughter waited patiently for me to be done messaging people and would be available to write anyone back for me when I could get us on the road. 

It would take a couple of hours to get home, but I’ve gotten to know the route well.  Part of it is familiar as it includes roads that we can take to get to the hospital where Ronan’s specialists are.  The next round of visits for Ronan are just around the corner.  Those could cause some anxiety, but with meadows, mountains, vineyards, and beautiful farmland, I really love the drive and usually look forward to it.  

I don’t love driving it at night, though, so I was being cautious around the areas I knew could be a bit hazardous for drivers.  At about the halfway point when the major highway turns into back-roads, I encountered a jerk of a driver.  On a stretch of an unlit, curvy, hilly, tight two-lane road in the middle of nowherefarming area, a driver in a small black sedan pulled up behind me.  They pulled up so closely that I couldn’t see the headlights.  I was the only one on the road in either direction.  Knowing exactly where I was, I shared my distaste with my daughter and a plan. I said, “I’m going to pull over quickly to the turn lane and let this person pass.”  I felt very familiar with this section of road and knew that the left-turn lane extends about ¾ of a mile. That meant that I had time to safely move over, slow down a tad, and also get back into the travel lane before the next turn.  As I did all of that, the driver zoomed ahead. 

“Fine, I’d rather be behind ya anyway,” I muttered.

CHD TV Presents The Measles Mandate Fight

Measles Mandate CHD
Watch Measles Mandate Fight on CHD TV here.

The ‘Rockland County Measles Lockdown’ took place in the fall of 2018. Unvaccinated children were Heddathreatened with a ban from attending school, and parents sued. Years before COVID-19 was in the public eye, rights were being violated in the name of pandemic ‘policy’ and public ‘health.’ Learn details of this particular litigation and its relationship to current events on ‘Defender In-Depth’ with Michael Nevradakis and his three special guests.

Families who do not want the MMR vaccine for their kids need to pay close attention to the looming "epidemic" of measles. This once common childhood disease is a tool used by public health to scare the bejeezees out of parents and force vaccine compliance. That doll in the photo belonged to my older sister. She was called "Hedda Get Better," and had three faces that turned around inside her cap. One had measles/chicken pox as you can see. One was smiling. One was sleeping. Countless TV shows had characters with measles and chickenpox. Like The Brady Bunch and Arthur. Frank Sinatra sang "I've had the measles, I've had the mumps," in "Everything happens to me." No one wants sick kids. And NO ONE wants vaccine injured kids.  Fear sells.  Fear cajoles. Fear threatens.

The other day, one of my daughters was watching Elmo’s World in Russian (as one does) right after I had helped her wash her face with a washcloth. That’s a screenshot of the show. OUCH. My daughter is in her twenties.

Sometimes, I see something that brings a profound jolt of reality and sadness. I’m sure you do too. That washing the face scene was mine. 

That's it. All I got today. Kim

New from Skyhorse Publishing. By Senator Rand Paul

Senator Rand Paul was on to Anthony Fauci from the start. Wielding previously unimaginable power, Fauci misled the country about the origins of the Covid pandemic and shut down scientific dissent.


One of the few leaders who dared to challenge "America’s Doctor" was Senator Rand Paul, himself a physician. Deception is his indictment of the catastrophic failures of the public health bureaucracy during the pandemic.

Senator Paul presents the evidence that:
  • The Covid virus was likely the product of gain-of-function research at the Wuhan lab in China—research funded in part by the U.S. government.
  • Taxpayer dollars for that research were deceptively funneled to Wuhan without the required regulatory review.
  • Fauci and his scientific yes-men knew from day one about Covid’s origin and tried to cover it up.
  • Fauci and his allies ruthlessly attacked everyone—including highly qualified scientists—who threatened to reveal the truth about the pandemic.
Why? Hundreds of millions of dollars of grants and unreported royalties were at stake, and heads would roll if the truth got out.

It almost worked. At Fauci’s insistence, the government imposed needlessly extreme lockdowns on Americans at the cost of immense personal and economic destruction.

Covid-19 was deadly, but the real killer was the coverup, led by America’s most durable medical bureaucrat—a man for whom the truth was too often expendable.

Senator Paul makes a powerful case that funding dangerous bioengineering in a totalitarian country is madness. If we don’t heed this warning, the next pandemic could be far worse.

UK Autism Crisis

UK puzzleBy Anne Dachel

“Tens of thousands of children waiting months and years for help after demand rockets”

The UK has announced an “autism assessment and support crisis.”

Please note that AUTISM itself is not a crisis. That can never happen.

There an increase in demand for assessments, but THERE IS NEVER MORE AUTISM.

We are to believe that while the actual autism numbers have never increased, recent findings reveal that there are TENS OF THOUSANDS of children waiting to be assessed for autism.

That can’t be good because there are currently endless news reports about how schools are struggling to deal with the tidal wave of children on the spectrum. Imagine thousands more qualifying for support and services.

A report on February 2nd described how dire the situation is. Getting assessed for autism qualifies students for special education services.

What A Pickle

PickleBy Cathy Jameson

My husband and I got to go out last weekend.  Asked to be a special guest at a dinner about an hour away, I was able to accompany him for a fun night out.  While we were away, one of our trusted caregivers spent the evening with Ronan and one of his younger sisters.  Right before we sat down for dinner, I texted, “Hey, this is way fancier than we expected.  I’m going to put my phone down.  If you need us, call, don’t text.  I won’t hear the alerts for texts, but I’ll pick up if you call.”

Things back at home were good, so I didn’t need to worry about getting any texts or calls.  Ronan was doing his usual activities, which usually keeps him happy and settled.  Maybe it was that he saw us leave and was sad that we didn’t take him, but Ronan decided to be a little bit of a pickle for our helper.  When it was time for him to take the seizure meds, Ronan looked at them and then he knocked them on the floor.  Much like a cat knocks something over just to knock it over, that’s exactly what Ronan did.

One

pill

at

a

time. 

Each time he knocked one down, our helper put it back on the counter.  Without skipping a beat, our helper said, “Oh, let me get that for you,” as she picked them up off the floor.

What a pickle he was being!

He’s starting to be more of a pickle other times, too.  I don’t usually support that kind of behavior, but Ronan’s being more interactive with the siblings, and I loved that!

Don’t get me wrong, we’re teaching Ronan to be kinder, but it’s impressive that he can be a pickle by choice.  Take his youngest sister’s latest frustration.  I made a baby blanket when I was pregnant with my firstborn that matched a crib bumper that I also made.  When they were all younger, my other children had gotten to use the blanket.  It had been put in the linen closet for years until sometime last summer.  I must have been sorting through the closet when Ronan’s youngest sister asked to keep it on her bed.  Sure!  It’s a really sweet blanket with really beautiful memories for me.  Well, Ronan saw it, too, and it was war.

He remembered it and wanted it.

She found it and wanted it.

I watched to see what would happen next.

One day the blanket would be on his bed.

Another day it would be back on her bed.

When he takes it from her room, he hustles to his room and tries to hide it with his bed covers.

When she discovers it missing, she finds it and then hides the blanket back in her room.

The back-and-forth typical sibling antics make me smile.  It takes forethought, strategy, and effort to be a pill!  In instances like that, I will quickly console the typical sibling that’s been annoyed, but I’ll also secretly cheer for Ronan for getting more involved in the kids’ world.

Another time Ronan got caught doing something he wasn’t supposed to was with Willem during Christmas vacation.  While home from college, I asked my younger son to watch my older son when I went to work one day.  More than able to be a caregiver for me, I still prepped everything the boys would need for the day.  That included meals and extra snacks.  My kids love snacks, including Ronan, so I made an extra bowl of cereal that he likes. 

But Ronan didn’t want the gluten-free cereal I left for him.  He wanted the tastier one the kids had.  So, while Willem went to the garage to grab something, Ronan quickly got the other cereal box, opened the box, and reached into the box.  Hearing his little brother round the corner back into the kitchen, Ronan took his hand out of the box, put the box down and stood as still as still could be – then he quickly opened the drawer where we keep the bowls and took out one, two, three, four bowls and waited to see what would happen next.  Next, came peals of laughter.

Okay, bud!  We know you’re hungry; just ask for help, and we’ll be right there to help you.

We’re always ready to help, even when he’s being a pickle.

As You Are. Or Were.

As You AreWe've asked the same question for 17 years as the autism rate has exploded: Instead of building more ambulances, maybe we should prevent the car accidents? Families are now waiting years to get into a hospital based autism center for diagnosis. Anne wrote about a new company that is offering quicker, virtual, online service to families tired of waiting. Virtual Autism Diagnostic Evaluations for Kids Speeding up the process is a good thing. Kids needs the diagnosis to access important services. But.... the name alone "As You Are" tweaks my ire. " We'd rename it, "As You WERE." I poked around the website, I found it noteworthy that of the 28 physicians listed, 25 are female, all of whom appear to be under 50. Make of that what you will.

By Anne Dachel

On Jan 16th CBS Boston, WBZ Morning Mix included a brief interview with the CEO of a new company that promises to reduce the wait time for getting a child an autism diagnosis.

It was a cheery exchange.

CEO of AsYouAre.com, Kayla Wagner, talked about her company which is now nationwide. They provide ONLINE ASD DIAGNOSES. Kayla talked about the usual wait times, now over two years, to just seeing a specialist for an assessment.

That was described as “really pretty terrible.”

This can now be reduced to a wait of a few weeks, thanks to the experts at AsYouAre.com.

What was so disturbing about this was the cavalier attitude towards autism itself. No one mentioned the current rate, one that shows no signs of leveling off.

The inference was made that we’re just now becoming aware of all the autism out there. “Awareness is definitely part of it, and it’s important.”

The Defender: Scientists Call for Global Moratorium on mRNA Vaccines, Immediate Removal From Childhood Schedule

StopScientists Call for Global Moratorium on mRNA Vaccines, Immediate Removal From Childhood Schedule

From THE DEFENDER: Governments should endorse a global moratorium on mRNA vaccines until all questions about their safety have been thoroughly investigated, according to the authors of a new, peer-reviewed article on the COVID-19 vaccine trials and the global vaccination campaign published last week in Cureus, Journal of Medical Science.

Cureus is a web-based peer-reviewed open-access general medical journal using prepublication peer review.

The authors surveyed published research on the pharmaceutical companies’ vaccine trials and related adverse events. They also called for the COVID-19 vaccines to be removed immediately from the childhood immunization schedule.

After the first reports from vaccine trials claimed they were 95% effective in preventing COVID-19, serious problems with method, execution and reporting in the trials became public, which the paper reviewed in detail.

Evidence also shows the products never underwent adequate safety and toxicological testing, and since the vaccine rollout, researchers have identified a significant number of adverse events (AEs) and serious adverse events (SAEs).

Authors M. Nathaniel Mead, Stephanie Seneff, Ph.D., Russ Wolfinger, Ph.D., Jessica Rose, Ph.D., Kris Denhaerynck, Ph.D., Steve Kirsch and Dr. Peter McCullough detailed the vaccines’ potential serious harms to humans, vaccine control and processing issues, the mechanisms behind AEs, the immunological reasons for vaccine inefficacy and the mortality data from the registrational trials.

They concluded, “Federal agency approval of the COVID-19 mRNA injectable products on a blanket-coverage population-wide basis had no support from an honest assessment of all relevant registrational data and commensurate consideration of risks versus benefits.”

They also called for the vaccines to be immediately removed from the childhood immunization schedule and for the suspension of the boosters.

“It is unethical and unconscionable to administer an experimental vaccine to a child who has a near-zero risk of dying from COVID-19 (IFR, 0.0003%) but a well-established 2.2% risk of permanent heart damage based on the best prospective data available,” they wrote.

Finally, the authors called for a full investigation into misconduct by the pharmaceutical companies and the regulatory agencies.

It is the first peer-reviewed study to call for a moratorium on the COVID-19 mRNA products, Rose told The Defender.

“Once a proper assessment of the safety and efficacy claims was made herein — upon which the emergency use authorization (EUA)’s and ultimate final authorizations were granted — it was found that the COVID-19 injectable products were neither safe nor effective,” she added.

According to McCollough, “mRNA should never have been authorized for human use.” Read the full article at THE DEFENDER.

Autism Rates are Now Certifiable

Who remembers this yard flag?
Who remembers this yard flag?

The United States of Autism is where acceptance is a cover word for, "Let's do nothing to stem the tide. Let's pretend it's not decimating families. Let's tell everyone it's a good thing." Autism rates have climbed for more than 30 years. But today, chronic illness and disability are all climbing with little worry.  Cancer. Heart issues. Diabetes. Mental illness. Up, up and no answers. What's really galling is that for all the new schools and BCBA centers, there's little progress or improvement for children and adults with autism. Walk into a day program. Ask the plethora of un- and under-employed adults on the spectrum, even the old Asperger's diagnosis if they are meeting their potential, Ask men and women who should be approaching retirement what they face as they age and take care of their autistic Autism acceptancechildren. See exactly what 19 years of special education has done to help individuals. Autism is NOT a difference. It's a diagnosis. With consequences for the entire family and ultimately, American society. The puzzle piece STILL matters.  Even if autism goes on to infinity and beyond.

ONE IN 36 AND COUNTING

Those of us who have adult children with autism remember a time twenty years ago when people were worried about the condition. It was a new label and people didn’t understand what was wrong with these children who started showing up in greater and greater numbers.

Back in 2004, the official rate was one in every 166 children, one in every 102 boys. Those were concerning numbers at the time. There were numerous congressional hearings looking into the autism increase.

Without exception, every health official who showed up at these hearings denied anything was seriously wrong. Most of all, they debunked the claim that vaccines can cause autism. They had all their pharma-funded population studies showing no link.

Autism was blamed on bad genetics (an updated version of the “refrigerator mom” of the 1950s).

Denying any increase at all was the real focus of health officials.

Safe at Home

BF60FCDA-FC15-40C4-AA83-2BB6E7B00EB1

By Cathy Jameson

A nurse from the one of the agencies that provides services for my son calls every 3 months. “Hi, Mrs. Jameson.  How is Ronan?  Does he need anything?  Do you need anything?”  Those calls are quick because Ronan’s been doing fine, he doesn’t need anything, and I don’t need anything either.  


Every six months, the nurse calls with scripted questions that keep us in the system and qualified for continued care.  Once a year, she visits us.  I’m always prepared for those visits and have appreciated the extra medical resources her agency can offer.  Besides resources, they can also offer medical supplies.  Ronan’s benefitted from having those items, for which I’m grateful.  Before the last home visit, I thought about what new items he might need but couldn’t think of any.  I also looked back at my notes from previous visits and jotted a few things I wanted to ask about.  For the next visit, the nurse who had met with us for years wouldn’t be joining us.  It would be a new person joining Team Ronan.  

I’m happy that the nurse who’d seen us through a few issues was moving on to something else.  But getting new people on board after all the things we’ve had to manage, and have successfully avoided, didn’t feel comfortable.  It felt like work.  Keeping my child safe and healthy is my job, so I got to work doing a little bit more prep work for the in-home visit. 

The day the new nurse came was less stressful than I thought it would be.  She was kind, lovely, and had years’ worth of really good notes from the nurse we’d know for years.  She even knew that flu shots are something we don’t care for.  That topic would be the tell-tale sign – if she hassled me, I knew to do more listening than talking.  If she didn’t, I’d still do more listening than talking, but I’d be open to hearing what she had to say.  With Ronan no longer under 18, the questions on his forms changed, including social/emotional needs.  No longer were they about which toys and activities he liked to do.  They were questions you’d hear an adult being asked.  

I have a good poker face, so didn’t let her know the first question shocked me:  

Does Ronan feel safe at home?

Yes. 

[Geez, lady. What a question!  He loves being home. LOVES it.]

With his special needs, I’m going to say he’s not out partying.

Right. 

[WHAT?!]

He’s not smoking?

Nope. 

[Good grief.]

Or drinking? 

No.

[Except this one time]

The more questions she asked, the more one-syllable responses I gave.  It satisfied her checkboxes, and it secured care for my son for another year.  With that done, I thanked the new nurse for her time and filed the paperwork. On her way out, she could see that Ronan was happy, healthy, and safe with us at home.  

Last Friday, we took Ronan out for dinner just because.  Well, mostly because it had been an incredibly busy week for me, and I didn’t want to make dinner.  We went to our usual place, but forgetting it was Friday night, the place was packed.  We went to another restaurant that we know Ronan enjoys.  Again, we saw a line out the door of patrons waiting for a table.  We drove farther into town, but four times that evening, we left because the wait was so long.  The fifth place, another go-to local eatery was open, empty, and perfect!  Ronan loves it there, and we loved seeing him so happy.  

Once dinner was over, we headed home.  We didn’t have the energy to do anything else.  And Ronan didn’t seem to mind going straight back.  Walking into the house with his little sister, he smiled.  He was home.  And he was incredibly happy to be there.  

Keeping him happy, healthy, and safe.  It’s my job, and I’m very happy to keep doing it.

Aluminum In Humans

A2825B99-8FEB-4982-A2EB-46862E8E1874A few weeks ago, I asked a fellow X'er if he was familiar with UK Professor Christopher Exley's research into aluminium (UK spelling) toxicity. This week, James Lyons-Weiler, PhD also focused on AL, and published all of his own work on aluminum (USA spelling) on his Substack called Popular Rationalism. Metal toxicity has been a hallmark topic of Age of Autism since our inception. Below is a link to Popular Rationalism's aluminum review and a summation of some of our posts about and from Professor Exley.

Imagine-you-are-an-aluminum-atom-9781510762534_lgImagine You Are An Aluminum Atom: Discussions With Mr. Aluminum

Join "Mr. Aluminum," a scientist who has made the study of aluminum his life's work, on a journey of discovery, reflection, and the science of aluminum.

Professor Christopher Exley is a firm believer that science is only useful when it is properly communicated. Scientific papers are difficult vehicles for the wider communication of science and thus he has always endeavored to tell the story of his scientific research as widely as possible through myriad blogs, presentations, and interviews. Through a series of easy-reading entries written for non-scientists, Exley will educate readers about his lifelong scientific passion: aluminum. In scientific circles, aluminum—in relation to human health specifically—has gone the way of the dinosaurs (though, unlike dinosaurs, there has not yet been a popular revival!). Yet aluminum is also the greatest untold story of science.

Safeminds: Acetaminophen and Language Delays

Infant tylenolFrom Safeminds. How many of us were told to dose our babies with Tylenol at every well visit? And how many of us would give our lives to only have had our kids suffer a langauge delay? From Safeminds:

Acetaminophen Use in Pregnancy Associated with Language Delays in Toddlers

Each Use of the Pain Reliever in 3rd Trimester Tied to a Two-Word Reduction in Vocabulary

A study from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign has investigated the link between acetaminophen use during pregnancy and language outcomes in early childhood. The findings revealed that increased acetaminophen use, especially in the third trimester, was associated with modest decreases in language development. The study accessed data from the Illinois Kids Development Study involving 298 two-year-old children. Sex-specific associations were observed, with increased acetaminophen use late in pregnancy showing language delays primarily in male children. This research suggests that the second and third trimesters might be critical periods of neurodevelopment sensitive to disruptions by prenatal acetaminophen exposure that could impact auditory structures and pathways essential for language development. The most significant finding demonstrated that each use of acetaminophen in the third trimester was associated with a nearly two-word reduction in vocabulary in two-year-olds. Despite the small sample size, the associations with increased frequency of acetaminophen use and language delays were notable. The study emphasizes the importance of considering the timing and frequency of prenatal acetaminophen use for minor aches and pains when considering language development outcomes for offspring, especially in males.

PART FOUR Autism: Thirty years of lies and cover-up

Big lieNote: This is the final installment of Anne Dachel's Thirty Years series. We're in our 17th year of publication. Many of our readers have adult children with autism in, or approaching, their 30s. Some even older. We must continue to speak our truth - our kids' truth.

By Anne Dachel

'We have put our trust in people who don't deserve it and who fail to earn it'

There would be no end to this series if I were to focus on the people in positions of authority who have lied to us about autism over the years. I have written hundreds of stories about the officials and experts whose job it is to protect the health of our children.

In truth, they have used their positions to promote the interests of the pharmaceutical industry—the entity they’re supported to regulate. Very often, after a certain number of years at the CDC or NIH, they’re rewarded with a lucrative position in some branch of pharma for a job well done. 

Their names are familiar to all of us because of the public positions they’ve taken, reassuring concerned parents that vaccines didn’t cause their child’s autism. They get the mainstream news coverage over and over.

Definitely Blessed

Older parentsBy Cathy Jameson

I love our dentist.  She’s a friend of the family and greets us all like we are the biggest superstars on the planet when we see her.  She’s watched my kids grow and has the best compliments for each of them.  When she sees me, she gushes about how beautiful and wonderful a mother I am.  I don’t always feel like a beautiful, wonderful mother, so I tell her I’d love to put her in my back pocket and take her everywhere, especially when I’m having a bad day.  I’d take her out and let her fill me with compliments to help boost my spirits.  It’s a joy to schedule all of our dental appointments because she’s full of positivity every single time I see her.

Except at my appointment last week…

That’s when she shared that another patient of hers, also a mother to an adult child with developmental delays, was experiencing some frustration.  It wasn’t that this other woman’s child wasn’t receiving services.  They are.  It wasn’t that this adult with special needs wasn’t thriving.  She was.  It was that this other mother is aging.  And she’s much closer to the end of life than the beginning.  She carries a heavy worry like so many other mothers carry – when she’s gone, who will take care for her adult child who needs care 24 hours a day 7 days a week?  Her close friends are elderly as well and physically cannot help.  Her younger family members have said they would not help.  I couldn’t speak, not just because my dentist was doing her exam on my teeth, but because I was stunned to hear that this other mother had no family support.    

After the dental exam ended, I said, “That’s why we have to live forever!”  My dentist agreed.  While not an adult child with special needs, she’s helping provide some of the round-the-clock medical care for an elderly family member who lives far away.  We both commiserated at how helpless we sometimes feel when it comes to being physical there to assist extended family.  But we also stated that we’d do whatever we could for them, including from a distance, while we’re still living. 

We talked a bit more, shared a bit more, and she ended the conversation with that positivity I always love to hear.  After telling me about a recent trip home to see her family, she shared, “I’m definitely blessed…” 

I told her that I was, too.

Frightening Parallels

Full MeasureThere's a new documentary called Unseen Crisis about a topic we know all too well. Vaccine Injury. The Covid vaccination campaign opened the eyes of many who had to roll up their sleeves against their better judgement, and often, their will, to work, attend school, and participate in compliant society. Sharyl Attkisson interviewed participants on her program Full Measure. The parallels to autism and vaccine injury are painful reminders for many of us.

###

This interview is about unrecognized damage from the COVID vaccine and the new documentary, Unseen Crisis,

It’s about powerful forces able to censor any challenges to the official narrative.

It is reminiscent of Anecdotals The Movie, released in 2022.

INTERVIEW:

Sharyl Attkisson: The number of people suffering problems after COVID vaccines continues to grow as researchers learn more about how to diagnose and treat the lingering illnesses.

A new documentary, The Unseen Crisis, examines the stories of some who got their shots, doctors vilified when they tried to help, and allegations that the government has long been quietly treating a select few of the injured.

Vaccine injury victim #1: One doctor’s appointment, I just had what seemed like an inflamed wrist, and the next one I was numb up to my back. 

That was the first time the doctor was like, you have a problem way bigger than your wrist. You need to get your brain checked out.

If you have an adult in a day program or an older child still in school, this meme from Open Future Learning will ring true.  What would you add to create a more meaningful, respectful day? I'd add, "Provide materials at an age appropriate level."  If you walked into my daughter's program, you might mistake it for a preschool. I've let them know over and over how frustrating this can be. They've made some effort. Not enough.  That said, I don't mind a logo on the shirt.  If someone sees TROUBLE with my daughters, I want them to be able to report it immediately. Safety first. KIM


No Cause Just A Big Lie

LieBy Anne Dachel

January 14th political economist Toby Rogers, PhD published another incredible piece on the corruption, collusion and cover-up surrounding autism and vaccines.

He called it, The big lie is having a corrosive effect on the minds of the bougiecrats.

The piece got my attention because I’ve written dozens of times over the past 20 year about what I call, “The Really Big Lie about Autism.” (See four examples at the bottom of this post.)

I have a different take on “the really big lie,” meaning that I’ve long said the main lie was the continual denial that more kids actually have autism. No health official in America has ever recognized that this disorder is on the increase. I’m sure if anyone at the CDC even hinted at it, they’d be gone the next day.

This denial is so critical because IF there’s been no real increase, then they can point to bad genes as the cause of autism. Autism has always affected the human race at whatever the latest rate is, we just didn’t realize what it was.

Toby’s brief article points to ANOTHER AUTISM LIE, the denial that vaccines are the cause.

PART THREE Autism: Thirty Years of Lies and Cover-up

LiesWho remembers when Dr. Thomas Insel chose to step out of an elevator rather than ride with an autism Mom and her child at the NAA conference many years ago? Raise your hand, your torch, your pitchfork.

By Anne Dachel

PART THREE Autism: Thirty years of lies and cover-up

Read Part 2 HERE

Read Part 1 HERE.

Thomas Insel 2013

The following is an article I wrote about Dr. Thomas Insel in 2013. Not only was Insel the government’s go-to guy on all things autism, especially testifying before Congress, he was also the MC who controlled the official narrative about autism.

Age of Autism 2013, Dr. Tom Insel on Autism: "If There Is a True Increase.." IF?

For several years now I've been following Dr. Thomas Insel's work as head of the Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee.  I've also looked at his lectures on autism.

In 2009, Insel spoke at MIT.  He talked about the environment and autism.  He admitted that there were endless possibilities, but he was firm that vaccines had been looked into and they'd been exonerated.

Then in 2010, he spoke for an hour and a half at the National Institutes of Health.  Insel made the stunning statement, "Eighty percent of the people with a diagnosis of autism [in the U.S.] are under the age of eighteen."

In addition, Insel said, We have responded to this as if it's a crisis. We see this as an enormous public health challenge.  If you look at those numbers, the increase and recognize how many of those kids will become adults, we ...also need to be thinking about how we prepare the nation for a million people who may need significant amounts of services as they are no longer cared for by their parents or as their parents are no longer around.

During his talk, he made it clear that better diagnosing could explain only a small portion of the stunning increase in autism.  He pointed to the environment, but was unable to provide any specific answers.  

Then on Dec 26, 2012, Insel put out the piece, Autism Progress, on the NIMH website.

So what does Insel consider progress in the area of autism?  He cited lots of things about the genetics of autism, early diagnosing using brain imaging and early intervention.  He made stunning statements like:

According to PubMed, there were over 1,000 ASD papers related to genetics or brain imaging since January 2011 - more than three times the number of papers from the same interval a decade ago.

He was quick to tell us that he really doesn't know anything about autism's cause: "We still do not know enough about what causes ASD."

He went on to say this:

What about environmental causes? Several environmental factors, such as exposure to air pollution, agricultural pesticides, and antidepressants, have been reported to increase ASD risk, mostly based on exposure during pregnancy. While most scientists assume that environmental factors interact with genetic susceptibility, we still know far too little about either genetic or environmental factors to make this link.

The strongest language I could find in the article was the need for "urgent attention."  He made a clever, but ambiguous comment, "The 1 in 88 figure in 2008 may still fall short of the mark. In the absence of a more complete explanation, as I have said in an earlier blog, the safest assumption is 'more affected not just more detected.'"

Following that he wrote, "If there is a true increase in children affected, what environmental factor or factors are driving this increase?"

"IF"?...Insel still isn't quite sure IF MORE KIDS REALLY TRULY HAVE AUTISM?

Sounding like we have all the time in the world to ponder this issue, Insel wasn't alarmed. Autism isn't a crisis according to this man.

I still can't fathom how he could put the title "Autism Progress" on this piece, deluding himself into believing that there's actually been any. 

The latest piece I've found from Insel, dated Feb 26, 2013, is nothing short of bizarre as shown by the title,  The Four Kingdoms of Autism. 

Insel finds autism frustrating. It seems to bother him that the autism community has so little consensus on anything and that there's so much "polarization and confusion around autism." (Which Insel doesn't seem to realize comes from the fact that the medical community can't tell us anything definite about the disorder.) 

According to Insel's overview, the divisions over autism are like "kingdoms."  Insel wrote, "Each [kingdom] has its own truths. And each too often fails to understand or even recognize that their truths may not apply to all kingdoms." 

The kingdoms are Illness, Identity, Injury, and Insight.  Their views of autism range from seeing autism as merely an example of neurodiversity to parents who see autism as vaccine injury. 

In Insel's view, there's no single answer about autism.

Insel summarized his perspective:

At different times and for different people, each of these kingdoms has something to offer. We need better diagnostics and treatments; we need better services, especially for adults; we need a strategy for prevention; and we need a deeper understanding of the social brain. As long as each kingdom stays behind its own walls, there is little hope for progress overall.

Insel believes that none of the Four Kingdoms of Autism has the complete truth about autism.

Insel seems to be saying, can't we all just get along?  Can't we all just agree on something? 

With a puzzling lack of concern over the cause of autism, he advocated for services.

 A better way forward will be to find some common ground where the entire community can work together. One such area is the need for better services. Clinicians, self-advocates, parents, scientists, and educators should be able to embrace a goal of ensuring that every person on the spectrum, irrespective of wealth, geography, or ethnicity, receives the best treatments and services.

Insel also made a passing reference about the next approaching segment of the autism nightmare.

The challenge only becomes more complex when children with autism become adults with autism. There are over 1 million parents of Americans with autism-nearly all worried about how their offspring will be cared for if he or she outlives them.

Finally, Insel chided us about our inaction on autism.

Fifty years from now we don't want to look back at this period and wonder why we stayed so long behind these kingdoms' respective bastions, empowering conflict rather than cooperation. Instead, by focusing now on both short term needs and long term solutions we need a collective commitment to science and service to improve the world for both children and adults on the spectrum.

It was stunning to read Insel's views and consider that this man is supposed to be addressing autism in the U.S.  He's the head of the Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee created by Congress and he can't tell us anything.  Where's his indignation over the years of pathetic inaction? 

Insel said this about the Injury Kingdom:

This kingdom was founded by parents who report marked regression after the 18-month vaccination series, when their previously interactive, communicative toddler withdraws and stops speaking. While epidemiological studies do not support a link between vaccination and autism, those convinced that autism is an injury argue that population studies may obscure a link in rare individual cases.

Insel trivialized regressive autism and omitted any mention of the fact that it's been discovered that U.S. government has quietly compensated over 80 cases of vaccine injury that included autism, along with the concession in the case of Hannah Poling.

"Fifty years from now..." 

Fifty years from now we will be living in a society where autism affects the entire population.  It won't be a childhood illness any longer. It'll be a fact of life for a large segment of the population.  We won't have the luxury of speculating on the kingdoms of autism.  There will be one Kingdom of Autism---Bankrupting Cost. 

We will be faced with providing for a never ending population of disabled Americans that we can't explain.  A significant portion of them will never be productive.  We'll all be paying to support them.  They will drain the financial resources of our society.  I can't imagine what autism is going to cost this nation. 

Fifty years from now, Americans caught in the autism nightmare will ask how it could possibly have gotten so bad with authorities doing nothing to stop it.  The abysmal inaction of those we called experts will be seen as outrageous and incomprehensible.

The truth is Insel has omitted the kingdom where he finds himself.  There is a Fifth Kingdom of Autism.  It's called Denial and Cover-up. 

I asked Louis Conte, father of triple boys, two of whom have autism, for his opinion of Thomas Insel.  Here's his response:

Dr. Insel clearly sees divisions within the autism community and has done nothing to address them. His insights do nothing that help people with autism.  He continues to be vague about a true increase in the number of affected children. No increase in autism, no autism crisis and therefore no need to do anything extraordinary about it.

Personally, I would be camped out in the Kingdom called "Injury." I think that children who have suffered brain damage as a result of vaccine injuries (and, yes, other environmental insults) often develop the symptoms of the behavioral disorder called autism. My thoughts on this are supported by the many cases of vaccine injury induced brain damage that the US Government (HRSA) has compensated in the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP).

We need to look at regressive autism.  What happened to these children is important. As Dr. Bernadine Healey stated five years ago, we must study the children who got sick.

The population of vaccine injured children compensated by the US Government represents an important data set that could provide invaluable insight into how autism (and other health conditions) occurs after brain damage. The information regarding these individuals is critical to understanding how autism develops. Is there a vulnerable sub-set of children? What can we learn from these children? There are dozens of important questions.

But we never get to study them because our government is keeping what it knows away from public view. Given the increase in autism, keeping this information shuttered away amounts to negligence and cover-up.

Dr. Insel should be leading the call to study the children who got sick - not just noting that divisions exist within the autism community. Imagine if President Kennedy went to Berlin and simply said "Hey, Berlin, you guys got a big wall there." Imagine if President Reagan said "Nice wall Mr. Gorbachev."

Mr. Insel, tear down the wall. Ask the tough questions.

Anne Dachel is Media Editor for Age of Autism.

Perspective

Sister and brotherBy Cathy Jameson

Ronan’s younger brother has been home on his college break since mid-December.  It’s been a big blessing to have him home.  Besides having our family feeling a little more complete, with some hiccups in my caregivers’ schedules, Willem could quickly jump in and provide care to Ronan while I went to work.  I didn’t like having to task my younger son to watch my older son on those days, but Willem would tell me it was okay.  He hadn’t made too many plans over the break, so he had the time. 

I appreciated his honesty and also his availability. 

Each of my children have a unique relationship with Ronan.  The girls are loving, kind, and will do anything for him.  Willem is also loving, kind and will do anything for him.  But Willem does other things, more brotherly things that you might see all sorts of other brothers doing.  He likes to egg Ronan on to do rough and tumble playing.  He gets Ronan up more to dance with him and to play fight with him.  He pushes Ronan higher in the swing than I would, and he pushes Ronan faster in the adaptive stroller, too.  With his delays, Ronan doesn’t always respond to the people he’s with, even to the fun stuff.  But that doesn’t stop the little brother from wanting to be with the older, developmentally delayed, silent brother.  Sometimes, the lack of an immediate response makes Willem want to do more – to encourage Ronan, to interact with him, and to do things others easily would’ve given up on.  With Willem in college now, I have loved the extra time the brothers have had together this past month. 

The only time Willem shared a tiny hint of disappointment while he was home was when I came back from work and found out that Ronan had been a rotten pickle to his little brother.  “Mom, I tried to feed him his lunch and he wouldn’t take a bite.  I tried to take him to the bathroom, but he signed no, no, no.  I knew he needed to go, so I approached him a different way.  I got him to come with me to the bathroom, and as soon as he sat on the toilet, of course he peed.”  I could hear some frustration in his voice, and I felt terrible that I’d tasked him with this personal care.  My kids can handle the type of care their brother requires, but they, like us, need a break from some of it.  I told him, “I’m sorry your brother was being a pill.  Please plan something with your friends who are also home on break.  I want you to enjoy the last few days before you head back to school.”  Willem told me he was fine, that he knew Ronan didn’t mean to be difficult.  But I still wanted him to get out of the house and to enjoy the company of friends. 

So, he did.

What Could Possibly Go Wrong? British Government & World Economic Forum plan to replace clinical trials with AI projections

C5A0FDAF-52DC-4D0A-A089-3922112970D7Using AI for Clinical Trials

By John Stone
 
Five years ago the British Government announced a collaboration with the then little talked about World Economic Forum to research innovative methods of regulation. It is not exactly clear what administrative or financial role the WEF play in this project but in practice the UK Department of Business awards bursaries to research various futuristic concepts. Projects were announced in 2021 and 2022 among the craziest being:

Project led by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA)

Project name: Using High-fidelity Synthetic Data as synthetic control arms and to boost sample sizes in clinical trials
Project grant: £750,387

Project overview

Clinical trials are a critical part of how new medicines are tested before use in the NHS to improve patient care and wellbeing. In standard clinical trials, patients are either given a treatment or not by random selection. This can be challenging in some health conditions, as random assignment to a control group could deny patients access to treatments that could extend their life or improve symptoms. Many clinical trials also find it difficult to recruit enough patients, particularly those investigating rare diseases.

Recent improvements in computing power have allowed researchers to create artificial patients, with similar health information to real patients in clinical trials. This artificial data could help to ‘boost’ smaller clinical trials, lessening the number of patients needed to be successful. Artificially generated information could also be used to better reflect groups in society that are less well represented in clinical trials, including different age groups and ethnicities.

This project will focus on the use of computer-generated data to help boost small clinical trials, and to see if this can improve the value of these trials. Following this, we will create an entirely artificial control group for a clinical trial. In the future, these approaches could be combined with, or even replace, real patient information. Success in this project could help to change the way clinical trials are performed in common and rare diseases, lowering their cost and improving how new treatments are tested before they are applied in the NHS.

Against a background where the WEF, WHO and the British government propose to have a new “vaccine” ready within 100 days of their expected new pandemic this is presumably how they would model the safety and effectiveness of a product with few or no trial participants. Weep.

New Substack Euripides To Take Readers Back to the Wakefield Case

Listen and learn typewriterDear AofA readers. For many years, one of our main focuses was the excoriation of Dr. Andrew Wakefield, author of Ileal-lymphoid-nodular hyperplasia, non-specific colitis, and
pervasive developmental disorder in children. You can read John Stone's first AofA piece from November 20, 2008 titled,  A Political Trial in LondonIn early 2004 the media campaign against Andrew Wakefield was gathering pace. In particular, the London Times and Guardian newspapers were increasingly peppered with sarcastic comments  about Wakefield and the MMR-autism theory, mostly coming from people with no direct knowledge of the science  – but who nevertheless felt the spontaneous need to offer an opinion. 

Wakefield was a brilliant, caring, young British Gastroenterologist. His medical career and reputation were sacked more times than Zappe in the Patriot's game last Sunday for putting forth a hypothesis (the bedrock of science) that involved the MMR vaccine. It's critical that what happened to him is never forgotten in the current narrative regarding vaccination. Dr. Wakefield NEVER gave up trying to help children with autism and GI problems. We will never forget his courage.

There is a new Substack called "Euripides," whose author we know well. This Substack will document the Wakefield case for a new generation. We invite you to check it out:

The series documents the deliberate elaborate intentional and systematic fabrications perpetrated by three editors of the British Medical Journal in 2011. These editors publicly accused a doctor, Andrew Wakefield, of committing fraud in a scientific paper published in the Lancet medical journal which implicated the MMR vaccine in causing autism in children.

Five short introductory videos give a comprehensive overview free of charge without a paid subscription.

The full video series available to subscribers provides a detailed account of the history and background and what was done in each of the eight steps. You will also get detailed evidence with quotes from the medical records of the children concerned. The anonymised medical records were read out in public in legal proceedings in England.

AI Test Examining Retinas Correctly Identifies 100% of Cases of Autism

Note:  We've had almost 20 years of "Learn the signs" asking pediatricians & parents to recognize autism in toddlers and young children. To what avail? Now, AI enters the picture. We'd still ask WHAT CHANGED THE RETINA?  Surely we don't have a growing group with genetically "different" retinas? You might remember Dr. Andrew Moulden who focused on the eyes of autistic children. Many of us have used vision therapy.  If this is an accurate test, does the change stay into adulthood? And could this tamp down self-diagnosis?  Thank you to Safeminds for the article summary.

A Korean study has discovered that an artificial intelligence (AI) system can correctly identify children with autism by examining images of their retinas. This recent research found that the optic disc area is a significant region for ASD screening and that retinal alterations could be a potential biomarker for the disorder.

30 Years of Autism Epidemic: Part 2

LiesBy Anne Dachel

Read Part "Thirty Years of Lies" 1 HERE.

It’s hard to understand how autism could become the childhood epidemic that it is without anyone in charge being alarmed. Maybe it was the slow growth over the past 25 years from one in 250 to today’s one in 36 that conditioned us to accept autism as normal. Maybe it was all the officials and experts who denied any real increase while scratching their collective heads over the cause of autism.

In a number of instances very critical information about autism was revealed and quickly covered up and ignored.

Over the years thousands of parents and experts have descended on Washington D.C. for rallies and speeches which caused only a temporary ripple. Immediately after, the vast majority of elected officials continued to ignore what was happening.

There have also been many congressional hearings on autism. They should have spiked interest, but sadly, after the proceedings, everybody just went home.

Back in April, 2007, there was a hearing about autism held by the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee chaired by Senator Tom Harkin.

Thomas Insel, M.D., director of the National Institute of Mental Health and chairman of the Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee (IACC), was there to testify. 

This is what he had to say about the rate of autism. 

"It is unclear whether the rise in prevalence is due to a rise in incidence, better identification and awareness of the disorder, or both.  A similar increase in prevalence has been observed in many countries outside of the U.S., and in virtually every study, boys are three to four times as likely to have ASDs compared to girls."

1986 Was As Important as 1984 Learn Why on the Highwire Interview with Barbara Loe Fisher

The highwire barb loe fisherDuring 2024, we're going to share the history of the vaccine injury, autism epidemic community with our readers. We have a deep reservoir of content from our launch in 2007. Fortunately, many leaders in our community are educating a new generation on the troubling start to the runaway pediatric vaccination schedule that has stood as the foundation for the push for lifetime vaccinations. Del Bigtree interviewed Barbara Loe Fisher, whose pioneering fight for vaccine safety after her own son has paved the road for so many. Visit her site National Vaccine Injury Center to learn more.

WATCH THE INTERVIEW HERE

From The Highwire:  In 1986, President Ronald Reagan signed the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act into Law, inadvertently setting the table for the pharmaceutical industry to become the most influential industry on earth. But that isn’t the whole story. Barbara Loe Fisher, a pioneer of the Vaccine Injury Awareness movement, was at the table, fighting for families and children as this controversial law took form. Listen to Barbara as she tells the untold story of the 1986 Act and how it came to be. Learn the betrayal that paved the way for vaccine manufacturers to secure immunity from liability for their products, opening the door for the complete capture of the agencies charged with regulating the vaccine industry and protecting the public trust. This is 1986: The Untold Story.

Mission Possible

Hope and futureBy Cathy Jameson

I booked our airline tickets months ago.  With how crazy the world has been, I made sure to buy insurance.  We’ve had to cancel trips before due to illness.  It’s something we hate to have to do, but the insurance has helped us be able to rebook a trip when one of us is sick.  A week or so before our trip, I thought I may have to use it.  I couldn’t stop coughing.  I had no fever, no drippy nose, and no other symptoms for weeks.  Whatever I’d caught before Thanksgiving, though, caused a bunch of congestion to linger in my lungs. 

No way did I want to be that person on a plane cough, cough, coughing across the country. 

If it didn’t clear up, I was considering canceling our Christmas plans.   

Cj ronan airplane

Thankfully, I didn’t have to do that. 

On our way home from our trip west, I sat back and smiled.  The coughing had finally subsided, and we had a wonderful seven days away with family at Christmas.  Like before, Ronan traveled like a champ.  He even went – and stayed – at Mass with us!  We’d packed in a few busy days while we were away, and we made sure to enjoy some quiet stay-home days also.  The times the kids wanted to do more, Ronan and I stayed behind and rested.  Knowing Ronan’s needs can be great, our hostess gave us whatever time and space we needed.  It was a joy to be able to get away from it all, and we didn’t want our visit there or our vacation to end.  It was time, though. 

So last Friday, we packed, prepped, and pushed on. 

It can be quite a production when all 7 of us are traveling, but there’s also quite a bit of excitement, too. 

Even so, I was looking forward to sitting and relaxing on the return trip. 

Settled in one of the last rows of a very full flight, I had almost five hours to just sit.  To relax.  To enjoy whatever movie I wanted.  But first, I wanted to rest.  We’d be landing at midnight and getting back home close to 2am.  Knowing Ronan, he’d be up way too early, much earlier than the rest of us.  I needed a nap just thinking about how much of a jolt our first morning home could be.

Reviewing Editor: James Lyons-Weiler, PhD, Editor-in-Chief

Abstract

As the rates of diagnosed autism spectrum disorders (ASD) reach unprecedented levels, numerous analyses have attempted to model, quantify, and forecast the societal cost of ASD at the country level. These forecast models focus on costs by category and over the lifespan, but place far less emphasis on the effect of rising ASD rates on societal costs over time. Most models make the unsupported assumption that rates have remained constant. As a result, these models obscure understanding and suppress awareness of the most urgent societal issues that surround rising ASD prevalence. Furthermore, they overstate the current costs incurred for the population of adults with ASD, while simultaneously and dramatically underestimating the magnitude of future costs as the ASD population increases. The cost of ASD in the U.S. is estimated here using a forecast model that for the first time accounts for the true historical increase in ASD. Model inputs include ASD prevalence, census population projections, six cost categories, ten age brackets, inflation projections, and three future prevalence scenarios. Current ASD costs are somewhat lower and projected future costs are much higher than other societal cost of autism models. In this model, total base-case costs of $223 (175–271) billion/year are estimated in 2020; $589 billion/year in 2030, $1.36 trillion/year in 2040, and $5.54 (4.29–6.78) trillion/year by 2060, with substantial potential savings through ASD prevention via identifying and better regulating environmental factors that increase autism risk. This tsunami of rapidly increasing costs raises pressing policy questions. Rising prevalence, the shift from child to adult-dominated costs, the transfer of costs from parents onto government, and the soaring total costs demand an urgent focus on prevention strategies.

Potential Modifiable Risk: Metals and Autism

Pick-your-poison-sampleWhat a phrase! "Potential modifiable risk..." We'd call it, "POISON." Below is a summary from SafeMinds regarding our oldest topic, autism and heavy metals. Mercury gets a...mention. It's almost like seeing an old friend, named Nemesis.

In-Utero Exposure to Heavy Metals Linked to Autism and Atypical Neurodevelopment

January 01, 2024

Cadmium and Cesium Shown to Be Particularly Problematic to Development

Researchers from several American universities, including the MIND Institute, have recently measured maternal urinary metal levels during two different time points in pregnancy. The research team then examined the relationship between these levels and their influence on autism spectrum disorder (ASD) or non-typical development in offspring at age 3. This study recruited mothers of children with clinically confirmed ASD who were early in a subsequent pregnancy or were trying to become pregnant. These mothers came from either the Early Autism Risk Longitudinal Investigation (EARLI) or the Markers of Autism Risk in Babies Learning Early Signs (MARBLES) studies. After analyzing the data, the authors discovered that prenatal exposure to metals, especially cadmium, increased the risk of atypical neurodevelopment in offspring. The team also found that cesium exposure was related to atypical neurodevelopment, with consistency across ASD and non-typical development outcomes and time points. The study concluded that public health measures to reduce exposure to heavy metals during pregnancy could be an important preventative strategy for mitigating neurodevelopmental disorders in children. However, the authors also determined that more extensive longitudinal studies are needed to confirm their findings.

30 Years of Lies: Part One

LieBy Anne Dachel

For at least the last 30 years we’ve been lied to about autism.

I’ve been writing about it for around 20 years, so I’m pretty familiar with all of it.

Of course I’m not alone. There’s a multitude of people who’ve been doing the exact same thing. I know many of them personally.

After several decades of hearing the official fraudulent claims, the general public has pretty much accepted the autism cover-up, after all, why would members of the medical community, federal health officials and the media all be lying to us?

Here’s the scenario

About thirty years ago, as the autism numbers began to climb, there seemed to be a genuine interest in what was happening.

In the early 2000s, there were congressional hearings looking at the increase in autism and what might be causing it. I know people who testified in Washington.

Early on the biggest concern was over a possible link to the ever-expanding childhood vaccine schedule which had tripled in the years following the passage of the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986. This act removed liability from the vaccine manufacturers (and from doctors) for any damage their products may cause.

The vaccine industry and their loyal subjects at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention were right there to assure that vaccines are safe, vaccines save lives, and there was no possible link to autism in children. They manufactured convenient population studies “showing no link” and ignored the mounting piles of research tying an unsafe, unchecked, toxin-laden vaccine schedule to neurological damage in children.

A Brilliant Strategy

The best way to counter any connection to vaccines was to promote the idea that autism is nothing new. It has always been a part of the human condition; we just didn’t call it autism.

IF that claim could take hold in the mind of the public, then the increase in the number of vaccines children were getting would be totally unrelated.

Age Of Autism Reality Welcomes 2024

36F5291B-F5FE-4267-A0AB-A717B6893432I saw, and FIXED, this meme: "Autism is not a problem. Stop trying to solve my existence." It was on Twitter/X last week and I added, "not a problem...for me." My RT message was: “Stop trying to deny others’ existence.” But therein  lies the rub. Maybe this person doesn't have autism but took comfort in the “difference” rhetoric and can not see the plight of the broader, medically diagnosed autism community. Maybe he or she or they does indeed have autism, and struggles to comprehend the actual difference in others. Or, Ed, as I’ll call Mr. "Emergent Divergence" could be a garden variety jerk. No matter. At Age of Autism, our mission to shine a light on the man made epidemic continues into 2024.  Our 1990s kids are well into adulthood and little ones are still being diagnosed every day. Thanks for joining us.

The Defender: Judge Refuses to Hear Expert Testimony on Tylenol Link to Autism, ADHD

Judge Refuses to Hear Expert Testimony on Tylenol Link to Autism, ADHD

The 440 lawsuits brought against Tylenol and generic acetaminophen manufacturers do not have “admissible evidence” to show that prenatal exposure to the medication can lead to autism spectrum disorder or attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, a federal judge ruled this week.

By 

Suzanne Burdick, Ph.D.

The 440 lawsuits brought against Tylenol and generic acetaminophen manufacturers do not have “admissible evidence” to show that prenatal exposure to the medication can lead to autism spectrum disorder (ASD) or attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), a federal judge ruled this week.

The news comes as a blow to the hundreds of families who filed lawsuits alleging their child developed ASD and/or ADHD as a result of the mother taking acetaminophen during the pregnancy.

U.S. District Judge Denise Cote in the Southern District of New York, who is presiding over the cases, in her 148-page opinion wrote that, in the absence of admissible evidence, the District Court will not hear the plaintiff’s expert testimony.

The ruling “effectively kills” the consolidation of lawsuits, Bloomberg reported. The Defender asked lawyers with four of the main firms handling the cases for comment, but they did not respond by our publication deadline.

The lawsuits allege retailers, including Walmart, CVS, Walgreens and others, falsely advertised products that contain acetaminophen as being safe for pregnant women and did not warn them about the risks posed to fetal development.

Johnson & Johnson’s former consumer health unit, now a separate company called Kenvue, told Reuters in a statement it will move to dismiss the lawsuits in light of the ruling. Johnson & Johnson, the original maker of the Tylenol brand, was not named in the suits. Read more here:

Filling School Positions Becoming As Difficult as Day Programs and Group Homes

Abadnonned schoolShort version of Anne's article? No one wants to work with children or adults with behaviors. The elderly are different because they can be chemically restrained, are weaker and more compliant. Our kids are strong. Our teens are stronger. Our adults can be dangerous if (when) they have behaviors. A BCBA in my circle had her orbital (eye socket) bones shattered by a sucker punch out of the blue during an outing with client who had not shown aggression for many months. Paras, day & group home staff are NOT entry level jobs. Except they are. They require training. Experience. Knowledge. And commensurate pay.

By Anne Dachel

A good example of how fast our education system is going down came out on December 19th.

It was from the local NPR/PBS station in Athens, Ohio.

The title didn’t sound too concerning. It was, “Athens schools need more help in the classroom, but job candidates are proving hard to find .”

I’m sure many people didn’t go beyond the headline.

IF a reader did look into the story, there was a lot of news to worry about.

First of all, the local school district can’t get classroom aides to meet the needs of the growing special needs population.

The Athens school district is trying to hire more professionals to support students with special needs, but it isn’t getting many applicants.

The additional hires are needed because of the number of students who have fallen behind or have behavioral challenges, or both.

In the middle of the report was this incredible statement: 

For example, the number of second and third graders on an individualized education program, or IEP, is over 25 percent.

The district needs more “intervention specialists” and “paraprofessionals,” but it’s not because there are so many students with learning problems.

No, what’s wrong here is BEHAVIOR.

Twas the night before Christmas, to our readers we say

Thank you kindly for logging on every day.

Your comments were written with keen thought and care

In hopes that we'd publish them and not put them "there."

CHD and thee, the science expose

Fauci’s world of pharma and how it all goes

And Kim in her office (so close to the stove)

Baked up post after post, and some cookies with clove

The stories keep coming - vaccines that did shatter

We ask every day, "Will our voices soon matter?"

Parents who tell us their toddlers did crash

As doctors and media continue to bash

The stories are true, oh this much we know

To special ed and Dayhab our children will go

The push back from pharma has become very clear

We ask you what is it that they have to fear?

They know that they broke so many hearts

With a needle they said was "to do your part"

They say we are looking for someone to blame

Where is their conscience, their care and their shame?

Saint Fauci, then Trump, now Biden! “Vax thrice!”

Media chastises, "Just roll the dice!"

To the CDC command! You must heed our call!

Now vaccinate! Vaccinate! Vaccinate all!

As leaves before the wild hurricane fly

Some will take sick. Some will die.

So then every day, we and our friends

We will not sleep until the epidemic ends

With Skyhorse and all those who stand our ground

Our goal is the same:  Choice all around

Since When Does the Associated Press (AP) Produce Hit Pieces? (Part of 1 of 3)

By Nikos Biggs-Chiropolos, The Kennedy Beacon

Note: This is the first in a series of articles The Kennedy Beacon is publishing on three consecutive days. Together, they examine how, nine days after Robert F. Kennedy Jr. announced his intention to run for president as an independent, the once-reputable Associated Press (AP) constructed a hit piece against the candidate that has all the hallmarks of Big Pharma dictating the method and line of attack. Our first article, below, examines the claims of the hit piece; the second investigates Big Pharma’s fingerprints on the original story; and the third reveals the financial/political conflicts of the authors, the AP’s leadership, and the organization as a whole.

As a presidential candidate, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. is the subject of all kinds of coverage – some positive, and much negative. One of the latest articles about him, from the Associated Press, reads like an opinion piece while being presented and distributed as if it were a news story. What can only be described as surprisingly sloppy, biased journalism reveals much about the media strategies that are being employed and coordinated to discredit Kennedy’s candidacy. 

The article, titled “RFK Jr. spent years stoking fear and mistrust of vaccines. These people were hurt by his work,” makes an incoherent and speculative argument that Kennedy’s work addressing vaccine safety has directly harmed people. Examples range from the use of pictures in a book for which Kennedy wrote the foreword, to a measles outbreak in Samoa that occurred months after he had visited the Polynesian island country. The latter accusation will be most closely examined in this article.

According to the AP’s allegations, these anecdotes prove that Kennedy somehow profits from spreading “misinformation” and harming people in the process, yet the article never establishes physical harm or causation. Notably, the article does not mention the numerous correct claims that Kennedy has made questioning medical paradigms, especially regarding the COVID-19 pandemic response, from which the pharmaceutical industry has made record profits. The article also ignores the great personal cost Kennedy has paid for challenging the safety record of vaccine manufacturers.

The article was released on October 18, soon after Kennedy received buzz in the mainstream media for becoming an independent presidential candidate. Analyzing the piece leads us to conclude that its goal was to smear his candidacy. It does not present the type of unbiased, investigative reporting that the AP is generally known for conducting. It also ignores the financial incentive for pharmaceutical companies to smear Kennedy’s claims about them, and Big Pharma’s potential reach in controlling what the media says about him.

The Article’s Impact

The AP piece was re-published by numerous small newspapers around the country, as well as by major news outlets, including ABC News and The Independent, on the same day that it was published on the AP’s website. Such re-publication is quite common for AP content, since it is one of the biggest and most well-funded news agencies in the world and therefore can send reporters to places that smaller outlets cannot; in turn, subscribing outlets share AP stories to increase their reach.

While the AP sharing its on-the-ground reporting of breaking news with smaller outlets is standard journalistic practice, its commissioning of biased takedown pieces like this one, to be republished in places ranging from ABC News to Idaho’s Magic Valley Times-News, is not. The AP article’s distribution was likely much wider than that of other recent hit pieces on Kennedy, in publications such as The New York Times and Vanity Fair, since their content is not distributed. The article was shared in countless other publications as if it were a news story, though clearly it is not.

What Is the AP and Why this Article?

The AP was established in 1846 when New York newspapers joined forces to cover the Mexican-American War. Today, it produces news reports for news agencies around the world, being republished by more than 1,300 newspapers and broadcasters and having offices in 99 countries. The AP has produced an influential style guide and runs polls for sports and elections. It has received over 50 Pulitzer Prizes for reporting. Broadcasters pay a fee for access to AP content. Thus, while no news can be completely unbiased, the AP’s model has been to stick to facts, and usually it does not publish editorial narratives. So why does this piece on Kennedy take such a blatant stand against him?

In “Mass Media: A History,” James Corbett points out that historically, because news wire services could transmit information around the world almost instantly, the owners of these services had enormous influence on what information was available for the world to consume. Today, as one of the oldest and most established media outlets in the world, the AP controls many wire services and thus, as noted by Agility PR, has one of the most influential positions for spreading news around the country and the world.

Never Mind What's Under The Kilt: Scotland Special Education

Scottish PECSThere isn't enough single malt Scotch in the world to make these numbers disappear. Special Education is devouring the UK.

By Anne Dachel

(UK) Scotland: 36.7% of students have special needs; up from 34.2% in Dec '22

The increases show no sign of slowing down

Let me update readers on just how quickly things have gone downhill in Scotland.

Here are the official statistics

Scotland: Percentage of students with “additional support needs”

2019—30.9%

2020—32.3%

2022—34.2%’

2023—36.7%

These numbers come out in December, and I  hate to think what next year will show.

What if this trend continues?

This should be a national emergency in Scotland. Image what the future will be like.

What if there is a two percent increase every year? By 2030 or even sooner, half of all schoolchildren in Scotland will need additional support.

Protective Instinct Bred Out

Blind faithLast week, I commented on an issue on "X" with the following: Morning. Many have had their protective instinct bred out of them by Children’s Services, pediatricians, schools. It’s safer & cooler to say “yes” to everything. Toby Rogers ran an article on his Utobian Substack that follows the very same track. "Self-preservation is the most fundamental instinct. The urge to protect your children from harm is an even greater impulse, imbuing parents, particularly mothers, with superhuman powers to confront aggressors." How is it that people are so willing to put themselves and worse, THEIR CHILDREN, in harm's way?

The Horrordumbor Civil society has descended into madness

We are living in the most horrifying era in human history:

  • During the time of King Herod, parents knew to hide their children or flee (because of course — the King wanted to kill them).
  • During the Holodomor, the Ukrainians knew they were being starved by the Soviet communists and those who could fled or fought back.
  • During the rise of National Socialism, the Frank family knew they had to flee Germany and later hide from the fascists marching through the streets of Holland.

Now people just watch TV, absorb endless propaganda 24/7/365, and drive themselves and their families to their genocide appointments. They feel great about the people poisoning them as they get sicker and sicker, all wealth drains out of their extended family into the pockets of their tormentors, their bodies and minds deteriorate, and they eventually perish.

Self-preservation is the most fundamental instinct. The urge to protect your children from harm is an even greater impulse, imbuing parents, particularly mothers, with superhuman powers to confront aggressors. Yet for a huge percentage of the American people that’s all gone now. We live in a nation of zombies who go from watching TV on their couch to Taco Bell to the doctor’s office for more poison and then repeat the cycle all over again. (Or they go from listening to NPR to bicycling to work at a nonprofit to eating a kale salad before stopping by the doctor’s office for more poison and then repeat the cycle all over again.)

I just want to take a moment to note how profoundly strange and unprecedented this all is.

The Ghost of Christmas Future for Autism is Grim

FutureScroogeBy Anne Dachel

A story aired on December 13th on Channel 4 News, London is a warning for everyone in the U.K.

The title mentioned thousands disabled with autism, but it actually only reported on one 28 year old man with severe autism.

Thousands with autism and learning disabilities stuck in mental health hospitals 

More than 2,000 people with autism and learning disabilities are stuck in mental health hospitals across England, despite repeated Government promises to end the practice.

Last month we reported on Nicholas Thornton – who’s been moved to around a dozen inappropriate settings: a safeguarding report on his care shows how poor it’s been.

Our Health and Social Care Editor Victoria Macdonald caught up with him – and a warning her report contains details and images some viewers may find distressing.

I transcribed the news report because it was so concerning to me for one reason.

In the report about this young man in Essex with autism who is being so neglected and mistreated, we’re told, “Nicholas’s care is commissioned by the Essex County Council.”

VIDEO: Nicholas Thornton on a day out in the summer with his mother and brother.  He’s a 28 year old man with autism and learning difficulties, who is currently an inpatient at Rochford Mental Health Unit in Essex, despite having no diagnosed mental health problem. 

He is non-verbal but is able to reply by typing.

When we met them in August, his brother Sebastian read out his words.

It’s like torture that I can’t get away from the alarms and everything.
