When the CNN guy held up the stage prop with the slanted "retracted" stamp on what appeared to be the Lancet article....well....it reminded me of something.

I am so glad that JB Handley went in to the studio, got his message across, it was a great interview on the CNN news.
Thanks so very much -so it is not just JUST Dr. Wakefield suggesting vaccines cause autism; it all the parents behind this good man including Mr. Handley!
The problem is the problem.
Maybe we should thank the pharma for trying to keep on discrediting Dr. Wakefield? Maybe we should thank our Bristish Med courts and Magazines for keep bringing it up??? Dr. Wakefield do not let this upset you - because this is what is needed. Stay strong!

The following update contains the most complete explanation of the cause and effect of childhood vaccinations MMR and autism in children and the Big Lie hatchet job being carried out against Dr. Andrew J. Wakefield:
Materialist Analysis of Dietary Supplements
The Obama Regime Uses the Pretext of Health Care “Reform” to
Escalate Economic War Against the American People by Taxing the
Working Class and Turning ALL Healthcare Over to the Insurance Companies
And HMOs Rather than Instituting a Veterans Administration-Type or Medicare–Type
Socialized Medicine and Escalates the Campaign to Ban Dietary Supplements!
Obama Proposed a Bush-Privatization of the Veterans
Administration within 2 Months of Taking Office!
Dietary supplements are part healthcare and must be considered in context of what the capitalist dictatorship of millionaires and billionaires is doing to healthcare and why. The starting point of this analysis is the capitalists’ escalated attack against the masses under the Obama Regime. Because of the fact that the VA is an example of socialized medicine it was initially partially de-funded by the Bush Regime and more than 20 VA hospitals were threatened with closure! Obama’s claimed “support” for the VA is a sham and a Big Lie starting with an immediate attempt announced on March 16, 2009 to begin to privatize the Veterans Administration (!) less than two months of taking office! The Obama/Bush Regime attempted to authorize the Department of Veterans Affairs to force veterans to begin to partially pay for treating war-related injuries and other medical conditions, such as post-traumatic stress disorder, that are war-related using private insurance companies! The pretext was supposedly to “save” the VA about $530 million a year!
The overhead of the Veterans Administration Hospitals is less than 5% and the overhead for Medicare is only 2%, while the overhead of the parasite HMO/private insurance plans is 30% or more, which forms the basis for their profits along with their stock price and the entirely illegal practice of “high frequency trading” AKA “Flash Trading”! There is NO money whatsoever “saved” by privatizing the Veterans Administration or Medicare. Just the opposite! The Obama regime is simply maneuvering to assist the private health insurers to increase their parasitizing off the misery, illness and disease of the American people and help to reduce the population of the United States! Incidentally, Veterans are already charged a privatized co-payment for non-war acquired medical conditions in order to help out the HMO parasites! Before proceeding it is crucial to define and explain the Big Lie Technique which is used on virtually all topics: There are 2 parts to the Big Lie: 1.) The first part of the Big Lie is that the lie must be BIG, because most people only tell little lies and are entirely unprepared for a Big Lie. 2.) The second part of the Big Lie Technique is to repeat the lie over and over again from every media source including textbooks and films until it is accepted as truth or accepted at least as partly true, when it is most invariably entirely false. In addition, lies may be lies of commission or crucial lies of omission. Both are unacceptable. The MEDIA, including the medical and science media is simply a privatized arm of the U.S. “intelligence agency,” an actual army of legions of professional liars in every area of politics and academic discipline and includes even so-called “comedians” working in service to the capitalist dictatorship of millionaires and billionaires. The U.S. media is very similar to Blackwater, Dyncorp, Custer Battles and Triple Canopy, etc. the armed military contractors in Iraq and Afghanistan, except that the media has always been privatized.
Obama was immediately opposed on his Bush-privatization scheme by all veterans groups, which finally forced the new Veterans Affairs Secretary/Obama puppet Gen. Eric Shinseki to reverse his initial support for the Obama privatization plan! Previously the capitalists were able to deceive the masses domestically by throwing out a few crumbs and scraps, while the overwhelming bulk of their programs in the last several decades were deliberately designed to directly attack the lives and living standard of the majority of the American people. On June 24, 2009 after widespread criticism and increasing awareness among veterans that Obama was giving them the same treatment doled out under Bush the Congress passed legislation approving the budget for the Veteran’s Administration one year in advance to prevent the delays which had occurred for 19 of the last 22 years! Those delays combined with cutbacks were deliberately designed to cause cancellation or postponement of programs, not enough equipment, fewer doctors, longer waiting times and restricted access to healthcare for veterans causing rationing of healthcare in order to falsely discredit the Veterans Administration healthcare because it is SOCIALIZED MEDICINE!
Remember that the words “reform” and “overhaul” under capitalism are simply codewords for attack on the Working Class and the Poor. The capitalists have now decided to escalate their attacks on the masses and have switched their gears to EXTERMINATE a significant percentage workers made “redundant,” under Globalism as well as a significant percentage of the general population. In fact the so-called “X-Generation” has been given that name as the private joke of the capitalists, with the X designating extermination! That is the meaning of the X-Generation! Globalism has rendered millions of workers redundant—no longer necessary under capitalism—and the present Economic Crisis/Second Great Depression has provided the ideal point for the U.S.-led World Capitalist Dictatorship to reduce their populations and the population of the entire world! The capitalists are now trumpeting their fraudulent plans for “universal health care.” This is all a deception meant to cover their primary program of population reduction. The capitalists have based the Obama Healthcare “Overhaul” on the present criminal parasite HMO insurance based health plans rather than the comparatively high quality system used by the U.S. Veterans Administration (VA), a form of socialized medicine, which is anathema to the capitalist dictatorship and their current puppet Obama. Under Socialism there is no need to “buy” health insurance from a parasite insurance industry. Free healthcare is universal, free and automatic just like in Cuba today, or as it was in the USSR before Gorbachev’s surrender to the threat of a nuclear war in response to the Full Court Press Nuclear Arms Race initiated by the U.S. in the 1980’s. (The so-called “collapse of the Soviet Union or of Socialism or Communism” is a textbook example of the Big Lie!) This is one more reason why we need a Socialist Revolution in the United States!
Coenzyme Q10 Doubles Life Span in Experimental Animals
After the capitalists exhaust their efforts to turn all medical care over to the insurance companies, they plan to escalate their ongoing false propaganda campaign against Dietary Supplements (see below) to a full court press targeting especially megadoses of antioxidants and herbal supplements. One nutrient mentioned more extensively below, Coenzyme Q10, is documented to double the mean life expectancy of experimental animals. The capitalist dictatorship tries to counter massive public support for dietary supplements by repeating the Big Lie: “We get all the vitamins we need in a well balanced diet.” Completely omitting the studies by Emile Bliznakov on Coenzyme Q10 and longevity in laboratory animals (see below), the U.S. capitalist dictatorship also relentlessly pushes the Big Lie that “caloric restriction is the only intervention which can increase life span up to 30% in laboratory animals.” (See CBS Sixty Minutes.) Side effects of caloric restriction in humans include greatly reduced energy and loss of sex drive and sometimes hair loss and most certainly does NOT double life expectancy.
Authors of Coenzyme Q10 Longevity Study Targeted!
It is a fact that no diet of any kind or lack of diet will double lifespan! The activity level of the oldest animals in the Coenzyme Q10 longevity study was reportedly equal to that of the youngest! This is totally covered up! See below. Covered up also is the fact that the 2 Principal Investigators on Coenzyme Q10 have been targeted. Karl Folkers, who first synthesized Coenzyme Q10 and the former Chairman of the yearly International Symposium on the BioMedical and Clinical Aspects of Coenzyme Q10 was apparently murdered on his return from Sweden in 1997 after chairing the most recent conference. His colleague Emile A. Bliznakov, M.D., the author of the highly suppressed book “Miracle Nutrient Coenzyme Q10,” who has sent this writer documentation that he is being paid off not to write a second edition (!), is in hiding in Pompano Beach, Florida. Karl Folkers was 91 years old but he sounded strong and as healthy as a horse when this writer spoke to him just before he left to chair that 1997 conference! Folkers told this writer he was taking a daily dose of 200 mg of CoQ10. No cause of death was given, which is totally unprecedented given the fact that he was the point man for CoQ10 and longevity, He was undoubtedly given a CIA “heart attack.”
This was also the fate of a significant percentage of eyewitnesses to the John Kennedy Assassination in Dealey Plaza, eighteen of whom were dead within 3 years. As a notation at the end of the 1973 Film “Executive Action” stated: “In the three years after the murders of John F. Kennedy and Lee Harvey Oswald eighteen material witnesses died, 6 by gunfire, 3 by motor accidents, 2 by suicide, 1 by a cut throat, 1 by a karate chop to the neck, 3 by heart attacks, 2 from natural causes. An actuary engaged by the London Sunday Times (Lloyds of London) concluded: On November 22, 1963, the odds of all those witnesses being dead by Feb. 1967 are one hundred thousand trillion to one.” The CIA heart attack is also described in the movie “The Parallax View.” Assassination is all part of routine U.S. capitalist “statecraft,” which is carried out by the facetiously designated so-called “Wet Section.” (Blood!) So very funny!
The Capitalists Intend to try to Use Obama and the Democratic Majority in Congress to Run a
Full Court Press to Try to Outlaw the Majority of Dietary Supplements, Especially Megadosing
Of Antioxidants Because Antioxidants Have Been Demonstrated in Hundreds of Carefully
Controlled Scientific Studies Over Decades to be Beneficial in Cancer, Heart Disease and to
Extend Human Lifespan by up to 30% or more! Coenzyme Q10 has been found to Double Life
Span in Experimental Animals with Activity Level of the Oldest Animals equal to the Youngest!
Using their false guise as “the friend of the people” and the “peoples’ protector,” the capitalist dictatorship of millionaires and billionaires also intends to use the Surgeon General to front the false propaganda campaign attacking dietary supplements and the Democratic control of Congress to try to abolish the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994, which has allowed the U.S. masses to extend their life span and quality of life through taking dietary supplements. In addition to waging both economic and biological warfare against the masses in order to reduce the population by bringing people to an earlier death (see below), the capitalists intend to implement the Codex Alimentarius, a United Nations protocol adopted by many countries including the United States and all countries of the European Union, which abolishes in some cases and severely restricts in others the right of people to take herbs and dietary supplements, especially megadoses of antioxidants, which have shown to be beneficial in cancer, heart disease and to extend lifespan of experimental animals up to 40%. As mentioned above, Coenzyme Q10, is documented to double the mean life expectancy of experimental animals, with the activity level of the oldest animals equal to that of the youngest. (Coenzyme Q, the Immune System and Aging by Emil G. Bliznakov, 1981 Elsevier/North Holland Biomedical Press.) Coenzyme Q10 is found in all cells of the body; low amounts are associated with aging and disease states of bioenergetics from congestive heart failure (CHF) to several types of cancer. Hundreds of scientific papers are deliberately hidden by publishing them all together in such totally obscure journals such as the Clinical Investigator and Molecular Aspects of Medicine, but only rarely in mainstream medical journals. Both CHF and metastatic breast cancer in women, e.g., are completely reversed with megadoses of CoQ10! This is covered up and downplayed even by the dietary supplement industry because after any ban on antioxidants, etc. they want to sell a lot more than just CoQ10! (See below.)
The Codex Alimentarius Bans Dietary Supplements!
The so-called World Trade Organization (WTO) has adopted the Codex Alimentarius and in 2004 abolished virtually all dietary supplements in the Europe Union (EU) through the European Food Supplement Directive, although it is still supposedly being fought in the courts primarily by fake “opposition” in those EU countries by pathetically going through the motions. WTO regulations specify that no member country can have a law which is in conflict with a WTO regulation, and on that basis and the recently concocted false claims based on entirely fraudulent “studies” and “reports” (see below) the United States government intends to try to abolish the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994 (DSHEA), approved by Congress under unanimous popular demand and to arbitrarily ban and/or severely restrict virtually all dietary supplements in the United States under Obama! In the United States the Democrats were initially chosen by the capitalists to try to overturn the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994 because their constituency trusts the Democrats slightly more than the Republicans due to the Democrats’ previous historical support of the New Deal and Social Programs, support which polls document has largely eroded and which exists now largely for demagogic purposes of deceiving the masses as Obama’s daily demagogy demonstrates. In 2003 the Democrats introduced the so-called Dietary Supplement "Safety" Act (S.722), the purpose of which is to essentially act as a first step to gradually render void the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994 (DSHEA).
S.722 defined “adverse dietary supplement experience” as “an adverse event that is associated with the use of a dietary supplement in a human, without regard to whether the event is known to be causally related to the dietary supplement.” (!) This employs clumsy false post hoc ergo propter hoc reasoning and was done in order to provide the basis for the false claims later reported by the FDA American Association of Poison Control Centers in the New York Times (see below). Because of the widespread public protest against that pending legislation and in order for the FDA to build up a “data base” of false reports (see below) actual passage of that legislation was put on hold until the Democrats again took control of Congress. After the Democrats’ “victory” in the 2006 Midterm elections, the Democrats, in order to insure “bipartisan support” and easier passage by the Fascist Usurper Bush (see further below), chose Republicans Peter Roskam (R-IL) and Charles Grassley (R-IA), backed by Durbin and McCain, to start the ball rolling by introducing bills (H.R. 1249 and S.762) in order to try falsely classify DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone) as an anabolic steroid and controlled substance, which according to definition in the U.S government’s own Medline Medical Dictionary, it is neither.
In January 2007 the FDA American Association of Poison Control Centers released a completely fraudulent Big Lie so-called “national data base” entirely constructed of whole cloth, which falsely claimed “1.6 million adverse reactions (!), 125,595 poisonings (!) and 230 deaths (!) due to dietary supplements from 1983 to 2004” (!) (See: The New York Times “Science Section”, January 16, 2007 and CBS Nightly News with Miss Goody Two Shoes, Katie Couric, January 15, 2007), when the reality is that there have been NO DEATHS WHATSOEVER directly caused by taking dietary supplements alone!
Only on February 2, 2007, 2 weeks later, did an obscure “Correction” appear on the bottom of page F6 of the New York Times so-called “Science Section,” stating that the previously reported number of “poisonings” referred only to reported “exposures” (!) and that the “National Poison Control database “does not even have a category for poisoning incidents!” “Exposures!” (!) That sounds almost as bad! The database then claims that all it does report is the category of “exposures and adverse reactions for various dietary supplements, which are not defined nor verified as being caused by dietary supplements!” This is the actual contrived, fraudulent “definition” in the S. 722 legislation! (See above.) The entire incident—releasing the initial Big Lie report designed as a provocation to terrorize and confuse the maximum number of people and raise the fear level of dietary supplements, which is then followed by the obscure retraction (“correction”) which few people see, is a standard media technique used to brainwash the masses used in all areas of politics in addition to dietary supplements.
Actually the lone death due to vitamins intake up to 1994 was due to Vitamin A due to eating Polar Bear liver—not vitamin pills! In 2003 it was covered up by the media but later blipped briefly that the death of Baltimore Orioles pitcher Steve Belcher, which was supposedly due to taking the herb Ephedra was actually due to heat stroke when he collapsed with a core temperature of 106 degrees Fahrenheit in Florida. Belcher had a previous history of heat stroke in high school, which heightens the probability of reoccurrences; he was overweight, unfit and unacclimatized. He also had pre-existing hypertension and liver problems and had a family history of sudden death from exercise (his half-brother died at age 20 of an aneurysm while playing baseball). He had not eaten solid food for 2 days to try to lose weight and took 3 capsules every morning, which could not possibly have raised the core body temperature to 106. This fraud is all the U.S. government could come up with up until 2003 to attack dietary supplements as “dangerous” and now we are asked to suspend disbelief in yet another Big Lie with their false claim of 230 deaths due to dietary supplements! The truth is that dietary supplements alone have caused NO deaths whatsoever!
Such information on claimed “deaths” due to “dietary supplement poison” would have been released on the spot whenever they occurred if they had actually occurred, but they did not occur, and the U.S. government knows that they did not occur. There is a zero mortality rate for dietary supplement versus prescription drugs which kill over 100,000 people in the U.S. alone every year due to known “side effects.” But the Codex Alimentarius is NOT really being implemented merely for drug company profits or control, but for political/demographic objectives to bring an increasing number of the population to an earlier death by depriving the masses of dietary supplements which keep them healthy and extend their life in that part of the world where there is no overt starvation, but where a significant percentage of people are forced to eat McDonalds and other fast food garbage. On the other hand no diet alone, restriction diet or otherwise, will double lifespan. (See further below.) Media focus on caloric restriction diets is for the sole purpose of diverting attention from megadoses of antioxidants, especially Coenzyme Q10, combined with interval training and no meat in the diet and the daily inclusion of oatmeal, an approach which can indeed double lifespan.
The legislation known as the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994 (DSHEA) attracted the greatest citizen/constituent input of any legislation for that year, and since. That input by the U.S. population overwhelmingly supported the right of Americans to take dietary supplements without undue interference and regulation of the FDA and or control by the pharmaceutical industry or any other government agency. Prior to and in support of passage of the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act in 1994 this writer, a physician and medical researcher by training, sent all 535 Members of Congress a copy of a review paper he authored on antioxidants based on the review of over 330 papers and abstracts. Library research by this writer revealed 2 bodies of literature in one! The overwhelming majority of research papers for over 50 years have supported the use of antioxidants in heart disease, cancer and longevity. However, a tiny number of papers all written by the same small group of individuals ruthlessly attacked antioxidants. The conclusions asserted in this latter group of papers were clearly unsupported, faulty on numerous bases, unquestionably biased and false and deliberately fraudulent. Vitamin C and Vitamin E, were demonstrated in the overwhelming majority of papers to be able to increase mean life span by up to 30% or more and Coenzyme Q-10 doubled mean life expectancy in one paper, as mentioned above This writer has been taking megadoses of antioxidants ever since he has been 14 years old and today looks over 20 years younger than his 68 years. Based on his findings and comprehensive review of the literature on antioxidants and his own personal experience in 2004 this writer requested and was effectively denied the right to appear before the Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions and Commerce Committee and give testimony concerning that legislation sponsored by Senators Durbin, McCain, Clinton, Harkin, Feinstein and Schumer.
Campaign Uses Multiple Fraudulent “Studies”
To Falsely Discredit Dietary Supplements!
In order to provide a false pretext and provide a fraudulent momentum to try to ban megadoses of antioxidants and restrict the use of DHEA and herbs and other dietary supplements taken by millions of people the capitalists have carried out in the last several years a series of large heavily hyped but mostly deliberately uncontrolled deliberately fraudulent studies on older populations with multiple organ disease, which did not use properly significant amounts of antioxidants and other dietary supplements. These studies heavily-hyped by the capitalist media were deliberately contrived Frauds—not “flawed” or “Dangerously Dumb” as falsely claimed by the loyal, fake opportunist so-called “opposition,” such as Julian Whitaker, Gary Null, Stephen Sinatra, William Falloon, etc. terms which are deliberately designed to attribute good faith to those medical Fascists who carry out such deliberately fraudulent extremely large and virtually totally uncontrolled Studies.” These fake opposition figures from Julian Whitaker to Gary Null to the obsequious William Falloon of “Life Extension,” who have written well-documented articles and even books supporting the use of dietary supplements, are all part of the capitalist system and all want their piece of the pie if the U.S. government actually succeeds in banning dietary supplements. These scoundrels who go through the motions of “opposition” are just as guilty as the politicians and drug companies, who want to ban dietary supplements. Gary Null, Julian Whitaker, Stephen Sinatra and William Falloon are millionaire capitalists themselves or their front men and calculate that they will still be able to sell whatever useless items the capitalists still might permit to be sold if the government succeeds in banning megadose antioxidants and other dietary supplements!
Despite the fact that the dietary supplement industry has deliberately omitted all mention of the primary political/demographic (population reduction) motive for the capitalists’ attacks on dietary supplements, Life Extension and Health and Healing have published excellent referenced refutations of the various fraudulent “studies” attacking antioxidants and other dietary supplements. For example see: http://www.lef.org/newsletter/2007/2007_04_27.htm?source=eNewsLetter2007Wk17-2&key=archive. The capitalists are attempting to set the stage to ban dietary supplements one after the other on the bases of these contrived, clumsily fraudulent so-called “studies,” which have attacked virtually every major dietary supplement with the Big Lie conclusion that they are either useless or even dangerous! See above! See also the ridiculous Wall Street Journal, March 20, 2006, full front page/2 page broadside in the B Section falsely labeled “The Case Against Vitamins.” Even more absurd was the fraudulent claim that “Low-Fat Diet Does Not Cut Health Risks Study Finds,” front page New York Times, February 8, 2006, where the studies participants maintained a 29% fat level in their diet while controls maintained a statistically insignificant 35%. (!) Talk about fraudulent studies!
The Escalating Drumbeat to Falsely Discredit Dietary Supplements
Continues With the Attack on the So-Called “Dirty Dozen!”
On August 2, 2010 the capitalist dictatorship launched a massive high profile media attack against 10 different herbs plus Germanium and Colloidal Silver. The truth is that herbs are rarely-to-never taken without knowledge of their effects gained either from books on herbology or alternative medical practitioners. In addition, herbs are taken in small amounts and despite the claims of morbidity from taking the herbs on the “FDA’s “dirty dozen” list there have been no deaths. On the other hand, as mentioned below prescription drugs actually kill over 100,000 people each year in the United States alone!! Yet the FDA continues to grants approval to these poisons masquerading as medicines. In the TV advertisements the drug companies are now required to list the side effects of their phony death dealing so-called “medicines.” Those who read what appears there on a backdrop of supposedly contented patients (tra la la!) should be rightly scared half to death.
The truth is that the herbs improve the health of a vast number of people without the side effects of prescription drugs which are far worse and which often include suicide and other fatal side effects. GERMANIUM, for example, extends lifespan and does for a fact strengthen the immune system. COLLOIDAL SILVER is effective for a wide range of ailments. Naturally the FDA wants to ban it. KAVA is an excellent anti-anxiety and sleep medication (with no fatal side effects!) But already KAVA is banned in Europe is due to the implementation of the Codex Alimentarius there. Europe also bans megadoses of antioxidants, etc! (See above.) YOHIMBE is an excellent aphrodisiac but it as a competitor of Viagra, Cialis and Levitra. The side effects of Yohimbe are inconsequential in comparison to the side effect of the prescription drugs which can cause PRIAPISM, an erection lasting more than 4 hours which is due to clotting of blood in the penis. This can in result in permanent loss of function and in rare cases necessitate AMPUTATION!!!! Priapsim does not occur with Yohimbe. The capitalists are in control and have simply banned the competition based on a false pretext. The capitalist dictatorship wants to reduce the overall population in the United States and naturally wants to eliminate anything such as dietary supplements which genuinely makes people healthier or live longer. Reducing the population was a primary objective of the so-called Obama Healthcare Overhaul which cut over $500 billion from Medicare/Medicaid, turns all of healthcare over to the insurance industry and does not take full effect until after 3 years when most of those who passed it, against 58% opposition of the American people (!), will be long gone. Note that Medicare took effect THE VERY NEXT DAY after it was passed by Congress because it genuinely improved peoples’ health! “Obamacare” is designed to increase healthcare rationing to such a degree that people have their healthcare requests for tests and treatment denied so often and to such a degree that eventually they do not even attempt to see a physician when they are sick, but wait until they are at or near death. (See above.)
The attack on the so-called “dirty dozen” health supplements means that the capitalist dictatorship is intensifying the attack on dietary supplements and megadose antioxidants and may decide to use EXECUTIVE DECREE to enforce compliance with the Codex Alimentarius as in Europe where there was no DSHEA. The Obama regime has already used Executive Decree to permanently end the Social Security Cost of Living Allowance in order to abolish the FUNCTION of Social Security, which is to keep older people alive. Note that a Federal District Court easily overturned Obama’s stem cell Executive Decree which supposedly opened up more stem cell lines for research. News reports made no mention that the ruling would even be appealed.
Although the analysis of dietary supplements might appear to be a small issue in comparison with the other matters analyzed here it is significant in that it demonstrates that capitalism is fundamentally based on war and mass murder and crime at every level and will leave no stone unturned in expression of that dialectic and furthermore demonstrates that only a Socialist Revolution in the United States can permanently end such threats to peoples’ security at every level and guarantee a world with a sustainable future unlike capitalism, which guarantees a world with no future. Under capitalism all news is bad news. Today we live in a bureaucratic, military police state, a step short of Fascism known as Rule by Decree, which is a form of Bonapartism, as in Napoleon Bonaparte. Capitalism is presently in its Final Stage of Permanent War and State Terrorism. Today 95% of New Yorkers and presumably the majority of Americans agree given the choice that we need a new system based on human need not private profit. That means Socialism, and because of the one-way dynamic (development sequence) of capitalism, which is entirely independent of the wills of the capitalists and politicians themselves and which leads to Fascism, barbarism and finally the end of civilization, capitalism cannot be turned into Socialism. This means that capitalism cannot be reformed. Therefore we need a Socialist Revolution in the United States. The capitalist dictatorship rules by a combination of force and deception. Therefore, a Socialist Revolution can only be carried out by first disarming the capitalists and simultaneously exposing their primary weapon of deception, the Presidential “elections” and all elections by extension under capitalism, all of which perpetuate the number one Big Lie of capitalism, namely that capitalism can be reformed, which it cannot because of the above-described dynamic. Disarming the capitalists is thus the precondition for carrying out a Socialist Revolution in the United States as it was in Russia in 1917! Disarming the capitalist dictatorship is accomplished by calling for MUTINY in all U.S. armed forces in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Somalia, Yemen, etc (the U.S. has a military presence in 130 countries) as in Vietnam, the real reason and the ONLY reason the Vietnam War ended in 1975! Because it was not led by Communists the immediate evacuation of all U.S. forces from Vietnam in days and hours quelled that mutiny.. Today the call for MUTINY must come from stateside and can only take place if it is organized by a genuine Communist Party, which must be built. Organization is dealt with elsewhere.
In the background is also the matter of Vaccinosis. Vaccinosis is a clinical syndrome which results from multiple, repeated, bivalent or polyvalent vaccination and is expressed in 2 ways: 1.) Cancer, where the immune system is weakened, and 2.) Autoimmune Disease, where the immune system is damaged in a way that causes the body to attack itself. An example of the latter includes autism in children. While vaccination against Polio and tetanus, along with Rubella vaccination especially for girls so they do not develop German measles during pregnancy, all may be justified and have not been generally associated with an increased amount of autoimmune disease or cancer, Autism in children is indeed associated with the increased vaccination of children for childhood diseases (especially with polyvalent vaccines) including mumps, measles, chickenpox and whooping cough, which heretofore always provided immunity for life in an era when there was virtually no autism! And the increased amount of autism has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with “previous failure to diagnose or previous misdiagnosis” of that condition, which is a deliberately concocted pretext by the perpetrators of the increased rate of autism: the capitalist dictatorship of millionaires and billionaires and the pharmaceutical companies. That is clearly the case today with multiple and polyvalent vaccinations of children and everyone else for every conceivable organism except the organisms which cause pandemics which the U.S.-led Biowarfare criminals want to employ to reduce specific populations (AIDS) or the population in general. The H1N1 “Swine Flu” and the H5N1 Bird Flu are examples. The coming next wave of the so-called “H1N1 Swine Flu,” will probably be a variant of the 1918 Spanish Flu Virus and has nothing to do with swine except for those employed by the U.S. Department of Biowarfare. In the fall of 2009 the capitalist dictatorship decided to put a temporary hold on this second wave of Swine Flu due to the fact that U.S. masses which are targeted for large-scale population reduction (extermination), showed that they did not even trust their dictatorship enough to be vaccinated against the common flu, much less the Swine Flu. The fact that the overwhelming majority of parents now understand that the so-called “childhood vaccinations” for Mumps, Measles and Rubella are the direct cause of autism in genetically susceptible individuals also has helped build a healthy fear of unneeded vaccinations! So, it was decided to try to accomplish the population reduction by using the Economic Crisis/Depression as a weapon to wage economic warfare against the masses to bring down the living standard and reduce the population in accordance with the requirements of Globalism—competition worldwide among the capitalists for the lowest salaried workers. They accomplish this through false claims of “required austerity to correct the budget deficit,” rather than simply instituting a Progressive Tax Structure and using the standard capitalist solution of Keynesian Deficit Spending to create jobs which stimulate DEMAND, the engine of the economy. The capitalists are doing everything possible to reduce demand in the economy by laying off and freezing salaries of government workers and supposedly relying on “Supply-Side/Bush-Obama Tax-Cut Economics,” explained by Ronald Reagan’s economic czar David Stockman as a sham with the objective of diverting money from social spending. In addition, U.S. Taxes are collected on only the first $106,800 of income rather than taxing ALL income with no exceptions. The top tax rate for millionaires and billionaires is only 27.9% but they do not even pay that. They pay the capital gains tax rate of 15% and sixty-six percent of U.S. businesses pay no tax at all. They’ve drained us dry!
The Reconstructed 1918 Spanish Influenza Pandemic Virus with Slight Adaptations
Is On Hand Ready to be Released as the “Second Wave of the Swine Flu!”
The virus which caused the H1N1 1918 Spanish Flu has recently been dug up, sequenced, restructured and tested and found to be suitably virulent for reduction of the so-called “population demographic.” See Terrence M. Tumpey et al, in the October 7, 2005 Science: "Characterization of the Reconstructed 1918 Spanish Influenza Pandemic Virus." The capitalist dictatorship of millionaires and billionaires has decided to temporarily delay “the next wave” of Swine Flu and have also decided to put “on hold” a world Avian Flu (Bird Fly) Pandemic at the present time, preferring for now to employ economic war alone to bring the masses to an earlier death while denying that as the obvious motive for their actions! But those population reduction options are still on the table for the future! In the meantime the U.S. government deliberately continues with these life-shortening multiple and polyvalent vaccinations for the very same reason that they are have designed a World Pandemic Swine Flu Virus—to bring people to an earlier death—to “solve the overpopulation demographic” in the capitalist way. See Materialist Analysis of the Obama Regime, Part I. It should be noted that routine Smallpox vaccination was halted in 1972 when it was claimed the risks of complications from the vaccination outweighed the threat of the disease. In 1982 Anthony Fauci, head of NIAID and Director of the U.S. Department of Biological Warfare, and presently the world’s Number One Biowarfare Criminal, who has also insinuated himself as the Editor of Harrison’s Textbook of Internal Medicine in order to censor all articles on basic medical practice. At this time he is still editor. Fauci also blocked development of the Panicalli/Paoletti Recombinant Vaccine for genital herpes in 1981 under the false pretext that the risk of meningitis from the vaccinia-based recombinant vaccine was “so great” its use was contraindicated. But the vaccinia-based Smallpox vaccine had been used previously to vaccinate hundreds of millions of people worldwide for generations and eliminated the scourge of Smallpox with very few side effects and very few fatalities.
The U.S. government has meanwhile gone to great lengths to prevent development of an effective AIDS vaccine, first permitting work to be carried out only on vaccines which use the AIDS envelope lipoprotein. The U.S. government (NIH) refuses any funding of an AIDS vaccine which utilizes the viral RNA itself under the false pretext that the vaccine might infect people. This is despite the fact that deleting the SOR gene makes it impossible for the virus to replicate and would permit use of virtually all of the AIDS RNA to be used in the vaccine, minus the SOR gene. This would make an extremely effective recombinant vaccine but BioWarfare Criminal Anthony Fauci, & Co. and the U.S. Department of Biological Warfare do not permit that to occur. The field of AIDS vaccine “research” has been deliberately misled by various red herrings and presently degenerated into multiple dead ends such as the most recent studies of “new neutralizing monoclonal antibodies.” Previously the “intelligence community” has sidetracked research with the V520 vaccine which contained a weakened adenovirus (an adenovirus—a cold virus—seriously!?) which supposedly “produced T cells to kill HIV-infected cells.” Right! That “vaccine” and others like it were a ridiculous joke and resulted in total failure but it was good for a several year delay!
To take it to the ridiculous, on February 22, 2006 the falsely named Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s immunization advisory committee has now recommended (by unanimous vote—no disagreement is tolerated in this club!) that all children between 6 months and 5 years old should be vaccinated against influenza. That means every child in this age group may be compelled to undergo flu vaccination every year! Look for an enormous increase in autoimmune disease and cancer in those who receive these vaccinations, which of course are to be added to the other vaccinations they are now sometimes forced to receive as mentioned above! See below. The claim that 153 children in this age group died in 2003-2004 from flu is a false argument for vaccination when they do not describe the circumstances of those deaths and other complicating factors, which could have contributed to the fatal outcomes, and when they know that a far higher percentage will go on to develop life-shortening autoimmune disease and cancer as current statistics also reveal! Which happens to be the population reduction objective of the ever-hardening capitalist dictatorship! Recall that the so-called Center for Disease Control is where the capitalists brag in the March 23, 2005 Wall Street Journal that they have created their human-to-human strain of the H5N1 Bird Flu virus and the Reconstructed 1918 Spanish Flu virus.
In a Clumsy Act of Desperation to Try to Intimidate the Masses to Accept Vaccination
The Capitalist Dictatorship has Launched a Full-Scale Big Lie Media Attack Against the
First Researcher who Documented that Munps Measles and Rubella Vaccines Directly
Cause Autism in Genetically Susceptible Children! Methinks They Protest Too Much!
Methinks They Protest Too Much! The epidemic of autism began in the late 1980’s and by 2007 Autism was found in every 150 children (!), according to ABC News, November 1, 2007. The New York Times, December 18, 2009 reported that figure has now increased: approximately so that one in a hundred 8-year old children now have autism, Asperger’s Syndrome or pervasive developmental disorder, otherwise known as autism spectrum disorders (ASD)! The most bizarre response of the capitalist dictatorship to “bar Dr. Andrew J. Wakefield from practicing medicine in Britain,” (Associated Press, May 24, 2010) and the full-scale media attack launched through the discredited British Medical Journal (January 6, 2011), with a FOX journalist backed by the full BMJ editorial board absurdly alleging “elaborate fraud” simply reemphasizes Wakefield’s importance and the widespread recognition that the mumps, measles and Rubella vaccinations of children ARE INDEED THE PRIMARY CAUSE OF AUTISM! In February 2009, 12 years (!) after its publication, the capitalist dictatorship and the pharmaceutical companies finally forced the retraction of Andrew Wakefield’s 1998 article in the British medical journal, The Lancet. That article first conclusively documented multiple developmental disorders in children directly associated with receiving primarily polyvalent vaccination for mumps, measles and rubella, including: autism 75%, disintegrative psychosis (one child), possible postviral or vaccinal encephalitis (two children) plus all had ”intestinal abnormalities ranging from lymphoid nodular hyperplasia similar to that found in Crohn’s Disease (an autoimmune disease) to aphthoid ulcertion.” Note: One child had received monovalent measles vaccine. [Citation: “Ileal-lymphoid hyperplasia, non-specific colitis, and pervasive developmental disorder in children,” The Lancet, Vol. 351, Issue 9103, February 28, 1998.] Wakefield’s only error was in not waiting a wee bit longer and publishing a study which included a much, much larger number of patients. Today there are 1.8 million children with autism in the United States and a comparable number as a percentage of the population in the UK and wherever the MMR vaccines are administered, with an annual increase of 20% in new cases in the US! Dr. Wakefield has published over 140 original scientific articles, book chapters, and invited scientific commentaries. His website, www.callous-disregard.com, lists multiple much larger epidemiological studies which found the very same result: cause and effect with the MMR trivalent vaccine and autism in children and demonstrate that Dr. Wakefield’s results are 100% “repeatable” in spades! His website also lists 48 organizations dedicated to getting the truth out about autism with their contact information.
The smear campaign against Wakefield is designed to make it appear as if he is the only person who has made the direct cause and effect association between childhood vaccinations in children and the sudden appearance of autism in children, when in fact that is the opinion of the overwhelming majority of those individuals who have objectively examined the issue, as well as the finding of multiple other clinical research studies which found the very same result. See above. The truth is that the parents of the children who have been handed a diagnosis of autism along with the MMR trivalent vaccination of their children made the association without any assistance whatsoever from Dr. Andrew Wakefield whose paper and others merely confirmed their already firm beliefs! The medical establishment is in complete unethical alliance with the drug companies and the capitalist dictatorship itself obviously, as documented above and herein and of course lines up against Wakefield and the parents and their children! The false claim that childhood vaccinations such as MMR do NOT cause autism is another textbook example of the Big Lie Technique and readers should review the explanation of the Big Lie Technique provided above. Note that it probably did not take too hefty a bribe or too many threats or harassment, all of which were indubitably utilized to cause 10 of the original 13 authors of Wakefield’s original paper to now “denounce” both that paper and Wakefield. Note: that all 13 authors of that paper fully supported the paper, its methods and its conclusions at publication!
The capitalists’ so-called “intelligence community” believes that it may be able to intimidate parents to accept the TOTALLY UNNECESSARY VACCINATIONS of their children by “taking down” Dr. Andrew Wakefield. But that is NOT going to happen! No matter what they do they can NOT destroy Wakefield’s credibility! The capitalists’ so-called “intelligence community” has pulled out all the stops in targeting Dr. Andrew Wakefield, using a Rupert Murdoch (Fox News, NY Post, Wall Street Journal, London Times, etc.) stooge who has been assigned since 2003 to try to discredit Wakefield! The hugely discredited British Medical Journal, January 5, 2011, began the attack by publishing a false but heavily hyped hatchet job on Wakefield by a journalist, which was later synopsized in the New York Times (January 6, 2011), etc. and reported on CNN on January 7, 2011 (Anderson Cooper 360!) and of course Fox News! The capitalists believe that if they can intimidate and brainwash parents to accept the MMR vaccination, then that can be used to try to further intimidate the U.S. masses to get “vaccinated” against Swine Flu, or vaccinated for whatever they say whenever they say, which is an important step in getting the masses to accept their own widespread slaughter as part of U.S. Biowarfare operations. The reason for this is that even by using highly infectious and lethal organisms (see above) the Department of Biological Warfare cannot infect everyone but “vaccinations,” which themselves can contain other diseases or potentially can cause conditions other than vaccinosis, can reach many more people if the population is thoroughly brainwashed and accepts them. Simultaneously the U.S. Department of Biological Warfare and U.S. pharmaceutical industry, which work closely together and are actually a revolving door, are presently organizing the drug store chains to carry out a “Get a Flu Vaccine Shot” campaign being carried out e.g. in Walgreens and Duane Reade and right out onto the city streets in a HARD-SELL SCARE CAMPAIGN!
Articles in various medical journals pretend to be concerned about “what possibly could be the cause” of such an increase in autism, but then cite no credible reason and disavow childhood vaccinations as the obvious cause! (Scientists Remain “Baffled by Increase in Autism!) Right, sure! Also, the truth is that the mercury preservatives in vaccines may aggravate autism, but are definitely not the main cause. It is the polyvalent vaccinations themselves. This was proved when the so-called “intelligence community” organized groups of parents to insist that it was “that mercury (alone) in the preservatives” which caused autism. This is an example of straw man disinformation. When it was easily proved that eliminating the mercury from the vaccines did not decrease the astronomical increase in autism, which has continued, then the whole argument that vaccines cause autism was supposed to collapse “like a straw man.” But it did not collapse and the focus properly fell on the vaccines themselves not the mercury! Today it is widely recognized that vaccines alone cause autism in children, especially multiple, bivalent and trivalent vaccinations! In another desperate attempt to discredit the truth and reality the capitalist dictatorship is trying to make it appear as if the entire case rests on one person and one research paper, WHICH THEY REFUSE TO REPRINT so that people can not make their own choice. Instead the media prints long screeds and rant of a journalist (!) not a physician or researcher, attacking the original Wakefield paper and the lead author, which are published in the British Medical Journal, January 5, 2011. (!) Oy! This is yet another clumsy attempt to employ the straw man method of trying to falsely discredit obvious cause and effect. Supposedly by attacking Wakefield, the primary author of the first paper, who is a well-known proponent of the association of childhood vaccinations and autism, then the reality of cause and effect will supposedly just disappear and collapse like a straw man! It does not disappear and it will never disappear!
Note that autoimmune disease is also very easy to observe in cats and dogs. The pharmaceutical industry recommends vaccination on a yearly basis usually consisting of a combination trivalent vaccinations for feline distemper (panleukopenia), rhinotracheitis and calicivirus, etc. and most veterinarians sheepishly and unethically comply with this horrible and murderous “advice.” The majority of cats begin to develop either cancer or autoimmune disease like clockwork. For example, a high percentage of cats begin to develop symptoms of autoimmune disease such as hyperthyroid disease, inflammatory bowel disease, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis or cancer or feline leukemia and die when they are about 11 to13 years old or even before. Dogs and cats should have only ONE such vaccination and no repeats! (Note that monovalent vaccines for cats are virtually impossible to obtain.) And the overwhelming majority of Veterinarians many of whom know about vaccinosis, go along with yearly vaccinations because 1.) yearly combination vaccinations bring in customers, 2) they get paid for treating the diseases caused by vaccinosis (!) and 3.) they are simply unethical and take their lead from the capitalist system itself which is doing the same thing to humans, where the result of increased profits of the pharmaceutical industry parasites and decreased human life span is also the objective, not simply a consequence! The recent February 12, 2009 false “decision” (!) by the U.S. Court of Federal Claims in Washington, D.C. that vaccines don’t cause autism is just more cover-up of cause and effect, which has been firmly documented and continues to be documented every day: childhood vaccination is the chief cause of autism in those who are genetically susceptible. A good reference to learn about Vaccinosis is www.drpitcairn.com/talks/looking_at_vaccines.html. Pitcairn is the well-known Veterinarian/author who has worked in research and private practice for years. Also check vaccinosis on your search engine.

JB--well done! You salvaged a really tough week for the autism community. You also inspired me to talk to my local news about my son's GI treatment at Thoughtful House in support of Dr. Wakefield. Central Texas saw my significantly recovered son, now age 7. Although I usually protect his privacy, I need parents to know the truth.

I've been dealing with doctors mocking me and offering me prescriptions for Valium, false reports to DCFS due to biomed, due process at school over lunches, & delusional news and marketing about vaccine safety for over a decade, but for some reason this latest Wakefield attack has emotionally knocked me over. I feel like I walked through a portal when that news story hit, and found myself trapped in a Kafka short story.
With that said, I am eternally grateful for everything you, Katie, Kim, Dan, Mark, David, Ed Arranga, & all our other incredibly strong, supportive leaders do every day...but this gave me chills. FINALLY. And so perfectly done.

I love the fact that JB was not looking for a fight. Too many people are ready to say that vaccines are the ONLY reason people are autistic. A "proper" study needs to be done. That's all. It's a shame that people need to take one side or another like the corporate interests do. Many are money hungry and do not care about people, just profit. I'm just an autistic adult that is super high-functioning. I welcome this sort of transparent research. I've done quite well in life with a few bumps along my journey. This is serious enough of an issue that real adjustments need to be made in regard to vaccines. I don't think I need to be cured, however, the vaccine schedule for the most vulnerable among us is way too aggressive and excessive. No more demonizing of ANY group of people in the Autistic Community. We all want the same thing: The ability to be productive, constructive and even innovative members of society.

Excellent, JB! I think that remaining calm and collected is the way to go (personally I don't know how you did it...). You brought up great points and made it understandable for the typical person. I just hope that people can look past the "Wakefield is the devil" propaganda and actually use critical thinking skills. Hope that isn't asking too much.
Again, great job... after being annoyed all day yesterday with the bs, I feel a bit better after watching this today.

Excellent job JB. I would love just once to have these same, simple questions (vax v. unvax study, # of vax in US v. other first world countries) to be put to dumbass Nancy Snyderman or Paul Offit or other gutless physician and hear their response as to why we are not looking at this. Also, everytime that Synderman shouts that ALL VACCINES ARE SAFE needs to be asked about the reason for the vaccine court. I'm with JB. Give me a reason to doubt what I witnessed with my own eyes and I'll start taking the next eye gaze study more seriously.
Posted by: Mike | January 07, 2011 at 09:06 AM
Just one point of disagreement. We CAN afford this pricetag: $10-20MM to fund a definitive fully vaxed vs completely unvaxed study. All that's needed is for one or more real philanthropists to step up to the plate. Private funding is the ONLY way this study will ever be meaningfully conducted, free of bias and free of pharma's influence.

Nice job addressing the complete absense of vax vs. unvax'ed studies and the unwillingness on the part of public health authorities to do them, whether on children or primates.
This week's news is evidence that the "vaccine wars" are wrought with well planned, well-timed and choreagraphed media communications by those with power, money and influence.
How terrific that in the midst of all the regurgitation of old news and Wakefield bashing that CNN has allowed a snipet of a differing viewpoint.
Posted by: Beth | January 07, 2011 at 06:01 AM
The suggestions about the study of vaccinated against unvaccinated children should be very, very specifc. It is easy to flaw this study from the beginning by choosing the children who could not be vaccinated due to health problems or children partly vaccinated. There is already an example of this, so called "polish study" http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19952979
As I am able to read the full publication, it is stated clearly that:
- those "unvaccinated" with MMR or single Measles were in some cases vaccinated later
- at that time the only reason for delaying MMR/measles vaccination was medical exemption due to health problems
- those "unvaccinated" got the medical exemption on the ground of underlying health problems
- those "unvaccinated" were very likely subjects to other vaccines then MMR/Measles
Posted by: Marc | January 07, 2011 at 05:37 AM
Handley's suggestion that Ali Velshi interview the parents of the Lancet children is an excellent one. I'd like to hear what they have to say.
Child 11's dad, we want to hear from you too. According to Brian Deer, you have a big, big beef, but I haven't figured out what it is.
Posted by: Carol | January 07, 2011 at 05:15 AM
I have to admit that I am more confused than ever about what to believe. As I was reading articles on both sides of this issue, I was reminded of the story of Dr. Semmelweis.
Dr. Semmelweis was a Hungarian physician working in Vienna who proved a link between doctors not washing their hands after performing autopsies and then assisting with births and mothers dying soon after childbirth. At this time facilities that used midwives to perform childbirth had about a 2% rate of “childbed fever” (a disease that caused women who had just given birth to die unexpectedly). Hospitals had a 10-20 times greater rate. Mothers would refuse medical attention by doctors in the hospital because of fear of dying from childbed fever.
Through vigorous observation and data collection, Dr. Semmelweis concluded that if physicians would simply wash their hands before assisting with childbirth, the rates of childbed fever went down to almost zero. What he did not realize was that he discovered germ theory. He didn't have all the answers, but he definitively showed through empirical data that when doctors washed their hands before treating expectant mothers, the rates of childbed fever were nearly eradicated.
In his time, Dr. Semmelweis was vilified and mocked by his peers because of hospital politics. Just a few years after his death, Louis Pasteur and Joseph Lister published research explaining how germs caused diseases. Even though Dr. Semmelweis had successfully prevented disease, because he could not explain why his methods worked, he was discounted.
We should learn from history. NO ONE knows what causes autism. At this time, we shouldn’t be throwing out any theories as to what causes Autism or what treatments could be helpful. It is an uncomfortable and confusing place to be. Especially for most doctors practicing western medicine who feel they should have all the answers. It is so sad to see politics and money get in the way of pure science.
It should be very concerning that a physician (Wakefield) who seems to be trying to unravel the mystery of autism is so vocally attacked by the media. Are they making him a straw man to beat up and distract from the real issue? The real issue is that rates of autism are skyrocketing and no one knows why.
Inevitably, these same journalists tout the theory that autism is a genetic disorder. Most governmental research dollars are given to scientists studying the genetics of autism. I believe this is a fool’s errand. It is a good way to get grant money and to continue your research, but I don’t think it is going to yield any real help for families. Multiple genes have already been implicated for causing autism. If Autism were a purely genetic disorder, then the numbers of cases wouldn’t be going up exponentially. There MUST be some environmental factors at work. That is the only way that we could see rates increase so dramatically.
We should learn from history that when things are not easily explained, caution and safety should be paramount. How many hundreds or thousands of women died in those hospitals in Vienna wanting to do what they thought was best for their children by giving birth in a hospital? How many million more children have to be diagnosed with autism before we get serious and do the necessary studies to find the real cause? It seems as though journalists, politicians, and doctors can remain detached and only purport “scientific” treatments until they are personally affected by autism. Then they start to look into alternatives and find treatments that work for their child. Because when it is your child, you do what ever you can to make them better.
The best physicians and scientists listen to their patients. They do not dismiss their concerns saying that it is all just a coincidence. Wake up America and listen to the parents of children that cannot speak for themselves. If we do not learn from history we are bound to repeat it.

I got so mad yesterday. I'm still mad, but at least today I got to see JB and Wendy Fournier and Louis Conte getting some air time -- what articulate parents! Anderson Cooper wouldn't even let Dr. Wakefield finish a sentence, but Dr. Gupta seemed to listen to him.
I do think this is a change from a few years ago when the topic was so taboo.

JD - definitely nailed it. The closing point was perfect. Why do we give two to three times as many vaccines to infants as other first world countries? We're talking Denmark, Sweden, Iceland and France here, not developing countries like Burundi or Papua New Guinea.
The vaccinators are getting desperate as they can see the writing on the wall. Look at what we've seen in the pass few years:
- The outright rejection of the H1N1 vaccine by the public despite every scare tactic imaginable
- Texas Governor Perry's attempt to mandate Gardasil for school entry overturned by the state legislature by a huge margin
- the commercial flop of Gardasil despite its "revolutionary" protection against cancer
- stalled and even reduced uptake rates of the flu vaccine despite it being added to CDC schedule for everyone and a huge marketing blitz
- reports from insurance companies that uptake rates for fully-covered vaccines are showing a drop for the first time ever
All of the trends are going the wrong way for those making a buck off of pumping this stuff into our kids. The chumps are no longer doing what the experts tell them and they are scared to death.

I know Handley had a point to get across and didn't want to get distracted. For the sake of informing the CNN interviewer let me say that my understanding is that none of the authors retracted the findings of the Lancet paper. Ten of the authors, under pressure, retracted the briefly-mentioned hypothesis that MMR might cause autism. (Maybe they "refudiated" it.) Three authors refused to do this, Walker-Smith, Murch and Wakefield, and those three were brought up on charges

What the mainstream doesn't understand is that I would LOVE for vaccines to NOT be the cause of Autism. I would love to know that I didn't allow this to happen to my precious boy. I would love to have my head stuck in the ground and lead a life free of the guilt that I sometimes experience. I can't look at a baby and not have this intensely desperate regret. But, if I would stick my head in the sand, I wouldn't be recovering my son. Slowly but surely he is getting better. I only wish I had heard someone like J.B. before I had my baby. Thank you so much.

There are few words to describe JB Handley. My two words would be angel and saint. He is an exceptional person. This interview made my night. Thanks JB and AoA. Secondly I would like to agree with Kathy Blanco. After thirty years of pediatric medicine I have seen all of the above ailments and more. I could write a book. Vaccines cause autism, seizures death and the plethora of other childhood illnesses. Many medical professionals have witnessed this horror first hand.

I just wrote to Katie Couric at CBS news to complain about their appallingly biased coverage. I suggested that she come over to Age of A to view this clip. JB, I appreciate your work.

A HUGE THANK YOU to: Generation Rescue, J.B. Handley,(OUTSTANDING! You made it so very clear for every one to understand!) and to Ali Velshi of CNN. Velshi asked good questions, but more importantly, he let JB speak!

Ali Velshi should be commended for actually listening to JB and asking some of the questions that parents want addressed.
My heart has been at a sort of emotional half-mast state since last night with the further vilification of Wakefield. This interview helps keep my focus on moving forward. Thank you again, JB, and thank you Dr. Wakefield for taking these punches in seeking for the inconvenient answers that our kids desperately need!

Most fair and balanced interview yet. Awesome job, JB! Clear, low emotion, reasonable, and to the point. This is the kind of coverage that will give people pause.

You Rock Mr. J.B.!
You really do ROCK!

Absolutely what people need to hear! Thank you so much for posting this. People misunderstand this debate in both the public and the news media. Thank God for people who are willing to speak truth!

Thank you, J.B. for bringing up sound and rationale points that are not being addressed by much of the media. There seems to be a frenzy of rerun reporting -- like a stampede of past soundbites and untrue accusations. This offered compelling information and sensible ideas.
Thanks to Ali Velshi and CNN for a truthful and much needed exchange of information. The children are SO worth it!

Don't they realize they are pigeon footing themselves into a corner? My child didn't become autistic with the MMR, he became autistic from his DPT shot or at least I saw what I saw eleven days after his DPT shot, near death. (another child, definately MMR), but that's another email. But, before he had that, he had MMR, and other shots, so who's to say where the little demon lyed. So on and on it goes the variety is vast. What is more telling to me, is the fact that not all kids get autism by vaccines. Shouldn't we ask why? Or should I say NARROWLY ESCAPE? Obviously we get other things, immune dysfunction for a time, or a lifetime, chronic diseases of all varieties, not just autism, including childhood brain cancers. This should also be discussed no? Because in my estimation, the vaccine injury liability table would go up exponentially if we perhaps included diabetis, chronic ear infections with later surgical tubes placed, childhood cancers, obesity, asthma, peanut allergies, allergies to wheat and milk for life, chronic seizures, developmental delays including ADHD, ataxia, failure to thrive, motor delays, sensory integration disorders, brain atrophying or encephalitis etc. The more they talk, the more they appear foolish to me, harping on same old AP wire lines. Obviously, not everyone will descend into autism per the MMR shot. There are set ups to this disaster. Lots of acetometophins, antibiotics, familial autoimmune disorders with related complement deficiencies, or low NK, B and T cells, XMRV, Lyme, iron disorders, methylation block, inability to detox (MTHFR/COMT), unknown mitochondrial disorders or tendencies, syphillis, EBV, CMV, even a simple flu mom had, and other in utero infections are grand set ups to autism. But one thing is entirely clear to me, we are putting too much crap in our kids, too soon, and even on slow schedules, kids are getting autism by triggering them to endure sky high oxidative stress. Our immune systems are declining and are not surmounting a very good response (aka, our cell mediated immune system is gone amuck), our endocrine disruptions are over the top, our water is laced with aluminum fluoride which disrupts BBB function (very important to fight off vaccine preservatives and viruses), and we have a butt load of MSG/Aspartame neurotoxic substances in our food supply, mothers with amalgam fillings doing in utero damage to their children, generational vaccine contaminated viruses brewing in all of us, low VIT D, etc etc etc. I know, don't I sound like a blame shifting mom, as if any of my "bad genes" were to blame? Well guess what? We did every microarray possible, not one bad gene, or implicating autism one. So, I go there, with blame shifting, all on mankind, and their better living through technology ideals. I almost saw my child die twice, once after a DPT, and another time in this last year, when his heart stopped, because he had to take lifelong anti epleptic medicines due to DPT injury, known to cause asystole (flatlining). I have a lot to say about this. I won't go down without a fight. And Kent is right, the pharma side has gone WAY too far, and they appear foolish, desperate, without reason and rhyme, and more than that, very non compassionate. I rather liked JB's response to the other interview with Spitzer too...and i quote "I don't need your sympathy"...God, I could have kissed the man. I don't need anyones sympathy either...I need TRUTH. I need the TRUTH to finally spill out, I want compensation FOR MY CHILDREN for a lifetime of misery times two, and I intend to do everything in my power for that truth to be unleashed. Whether that be in my neighborhood and community, or on a large scale, I will do it, so help me God. My kids deserve a better life than this?

Bravo, JB! How fortunate we are that your eloquence emerges under fire. Thank you for saying what we were all hoping you would.

Thank God for some decent coverage!
Posted by: Jen | January 06, 2011 at 06:59 PM
Great job! And a great job by the interviewer for getting to the heart of the matter. I think the pharma side has gone one step too far and the news media will hopefully wake up to the epidemic of autism in our country.
All the best,
