Age of Autism Weekly Wrap: Broken Trust
An Open Letter to California Religous Leaders About SB277 & Vaccine Rights

Vaccination in the News

Media_coverageBy Cathy Jameson

Since December, mainstream news stories dedicated large amounts of time and energy on the measles and on the measles vaccine.  Sadly, much of the news that I saw was inaccurate or sensationalized.  With how over-the-top the media’s been, I wasn’t sure what to expect when I saw this article from the Washington Post last week: News Coverage of Vaccine Controversies Drives Down Support for Vaccines.  Surprisingly, I found myself agreeing with some of the points being made.  It’s too bad that the media didn’t remember to keep a few of these points in mind when their measles mania coverage began:

The key lesson regarding vaccines is this: the more the news media devoted attention to the political controversy, the less the public supported vaccination.

The media shot themselves in the foot with their continuous news coverage of the measles outbreak, which leads to takeaway number two from the article:

Continuing coverage of the controversy surrounding vaccines may have unfortunate consequences.

The authors’ research focused on unfortunate consequences of the media and of vaccine supporters, but they neglected to include that the public also suffers.  The public, even though they are the ones targeted for vaccines, don’t seem to be an important factor:

…politicians and journalists should realize that politicizing vaccines — and reporting on the resulting conflict — can weaken the public’s support for vaccination.

Takeaway number three to politicians and journalists?  Shut up. 

Politicians and journalists didn’t keep themselves quiet enough.  By not keeping quiet, they’re dangerously close to shooting themselves in the other foot.  It looks like some of them did just that.

The round-the-clock measles mania, the hype, and the fear tactics backfired.  The intense attention didn’t weaken the public.  It didn’t keep people in the dark about vaccines either.  Instead of keeping the public dependent on the news for information, all this talk from the politicians and from the journalists woke the people up.  They woke them up.  Then they threatened to take the public’s rights away. 

Regular American was forced to look at vaccines, a topic many of us here know well.  Some days it may have felt like it was too late to make a difference because of the backlash we’ve experienced.  But with this intense measles mania, with how the media got every Tom, Dick and Harry (or was it Mark, Anne and Hillary) to go on camera to say that vaccines are safe, with how some politicians are working overtime ready to take our personal health care rights away, we have the opportunity to make a big difference now.  The more they learn, the more fully informed they will hopefully be.  None of that is unfortunate.  Not one bit of it is.  In fact, we needed that to happen. 

More of the public is realizing just how much vaccines and vaccine choice directly affects them.  Thanks to the media.  Thanks to the politicians.  Thanks to dragging this topic out for as long as they have:

And public attention to issues is often short-lived, which means citizens could easily forget political cues about vaccines, presuming that politicians stop stoking the controversy.

Stoking the controversy – the media did that so well.  The politicians are doing that right now.    

Let’s continue to stoke that controversy, but stoke it for a different reason:  to protect our rights.  Those are being threatened in several states right now.  We must take action before they’re completely taken away.

It may be too late for the media and the politicians to realize what they’ve done in the last two months.  But it isn’t too late for those whom they serve.  It’s a beginning.  So, tell your story one more time.  Share your experience.  Talk about vaccines, vaccine side effects, and why exemptions are necessary.  Make sure your representatives are listening too.  We need now more than ever to make sure that our voices are heard.

If there are no religious or personal exemptions in the future, I imagine the medical exemption will receive more focus. What about a child who is obviously immune compromised today with active leukemia, but that child recovers, and in two or three years, maybe the medical professional won't be so sure that recovered child should be exempt from the mandated vaccinations. Or does the exemption last a lifetime? Who decides? Can that parent go to court if he/she can't get a medical doctor to sign off on continued exemption from vaccinations? Some of these parents with immune compromised kids that are demanding mandatory vaccination with no religious or personal exemptions may be shooting themselves in the foot.

Greg

Good post Cathy! The more media attention on vaccines, leading to people, including vaccines supporters, becoming more informed will likely develop in this precarious situation: Vaccines may quickly become products that many want for others but not for themselves or their kids. This situation will definitely not be sustainable, and no amount of vaccine mandates will fix it.

However, regarding polio vaccination in neighbouring India:

Indian J Med Ethics. 2012 Apr-Jun;9(2):114-7.
Polio programme: let us declare victory and move on.
Vashisht N, Puliyel J.

Abstract

It was hoped that following polio eradication, immunisation could be stopped. However the synthesis of polio virus in 2002, made eradication impossible. It is argued that getting poor countries to expend their scarce resources on an impossible dream over the last 10 years was unethical. Furthermore, while India has been polio-free for a year, there has been a huge increase in non-polio acute flaccid paralysis (NPAFP). In 2011, there were an extra 47,500 new cases of NPAFP. Clinically indistinguishable from polio paralysis but twice as deadly, the incidence of NPAFP was directly proportional to doses of oral polio received. Though this data was collected within the polio surveillance system, it was not investigated. The principle of primum-non-nocere was violated. The authors suggest that the huge bill of US$ 8 billion spent on the programme, is a small sum to pay if the world learns to be wary of such vertical programmes in the future.

Pakistan arrests parents for refusing polio vaccine

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-31703835

Note that the oral polio vaccine is not used here or in other parts of the developed world because as a live virus vaccine. It was the only cause of polio in our country for decades. Some people do come down with polio from the live vaccine and yet it is being forced at gunpoint in Pakistan.

Where is our government's outcry and condemnation of this breach of human rights?

Linda1

Vincent,

Penicillin, tetracycline, erythromicin, gentamicin, keflex, cipro, etc., have all saved many lives. According to your logic, we should all take them, all of them and all together, because if they are good for some people some of the time, they're good for all people all of the time. And we should ignore those pesky adverse side effects and deaths caused by these same drugs alone or in combination because clearly the benefits to society outweigh any rare risks to the individual. And you know what, MRSA is on the rise. Just to be on the safe side, we should all be mandated to soak daily in an antibiotic bath followed with a rub down of neomycin ointment, head to toe. It's a public duty. We should install antibiotic detectors in all schools and community buildings to make sure everyone is covered and protected to ensure that the immune compromised are not endangered by our germs, and the government should create a database to track antibiotic compliance to make sure all prescriptions are being filled and to track the mandatory monitoring blood work of all citizens to make sure they're fully antibioticized. Come to think of it, hair is filthy. Hair should be banned in society. All heads should be shaved (including eyebrows) and inspected for dangerous growth by a team of government inspectors as often as necessary to ensure the public is protected. We can't take a chance that anyone will show up with an infection. And if anyone does, then it is their fault and they should pay if they infect anyone else. In addition, anyone who is found to be unantibioticized or even partially antibioticized or who is found to be hiding hair under their hat, will be subject to a tax and possibly imprisonment. Such behavior cannot be tolerated.

But just to show that we're not insensitive to the rare fallen in our war on infection, we'll all pitch in to throw a few cents to those who can prove that they didn't tolerate the necessary drugs, out of the goodness of our hearts, because we know the fallen were defective and would have succumbed to the infections we are preventing with our humanitarian effort anyway.

Sound crazy? What's that Vincent? Antibiotics cause overgrowth of pathogens? Prove it! You have studies? They have studies too and this is the way it's going to be, because the science has spoken and government, backed by ironclad science, knows best. You are anti-science, you believe the earth is flat, you believe that the earth was created yesterday, if you disagree. Speak up and you'll be reported to your medical board as a charlatan. The media will destroy your name within 2 hours. You'll be public enemy #1.

Consider that your medical education was not handed down on tablets from the Almighty. It is and always will be a flawed construct of man. Not everyone subscribes to the model and holds those with MD after their name up as supreme rulers with all knowing power and insight. Some of us would like to be free to decide whether or not we want to take the drugs you and your cronies prescribe.

How many millions of infants have been injected with hepatitis B vaccine without any medical indication, with its powerful and inappropriate immune stimulating effect at a critical moment in brain and organ development? How many studies were done on infants of hep B positive mothers, drug addicts and prostitutes, that followed those babies into child and adulthood to determine the effect that that vaccination had on them? How many studies were done to determine the toxicity of the whopping dose of aluminum that those infants receive, now all infants receive, within hours of birth? Early hep B vaccines contained thimerosal that was later removed. Why? What happened to those children who received the full load of toxins just as they opened their eyes to greet the world? You don't know? Ask the parents of those children. They'll tell you. They've been trying to tell you.

Why is it that veterinarians removed thimerosal in animal vaccines in the 1980s, but the AAP has fought to keep them in human vaccines? Why is it that veterinarians recognize over vaccination as an assault to the animal immune system, but the AAP officially adopts the Offit ideology of there can never be too many vaccines?

Your medical training was bought by Pharma and you naively have allowed yourself to be used as a foot soldier against the people that you have taken an oath to serve. Don't just react, THINK. Stand back. Look at the whole picture and try to open your mind that has been glued shut by your training. Separate the science from the ideology. Scrutinize the science to see that it is not tainted. Use your head. And then have the courage to stand up for what you find.

Hera

Vincent; what you are describing is illegal ( or about to become so, if the laws you support are made.)

If philosophical exemptions go away, there is no right to make a choice about vaccines based on personal belief or medical needs.

And if religious exemptions go away, forced vaccinations of unwilling patients/victims is all that is left.

Your "reasonable person" would go to jail for that choice.

Vincent just because you take the 2 vaccine's you propose for said illnesses ,it doesn't change anyone's perspective on the unsafe ,untested vaccination schedule being advised/coerced by Goverments world wide to have. If we took your 2 vaccines we would still be ant-vaccine because we don't wilt,and we stand firm and have real thoughts .

I wouldn't touch a Rabies vaccine or a Hep B just look up adverse behind your proposed "must have vaccines" and wake up Vincent if the illness didn't get you the vaccine "cure all" will.

Keep posting and learning Vincent or is money worth more than your health.Or are you a "don't do as I do, do as I say"

MMR RIP

John Stone

Vincent

Yes, you describe two sensible and moderate interventions to people particularly at risk - it is a bit different from an ever expanding compulsory schedule for all. Forcibly vaccinating everybody against everything is an oppressive and reckless project with the only certain beneficiaries being the industry, crony government officials and greedy pediatricians. It is not the same and it is obviously not the same.

Vincent Iannelli, MD

"vaccines are a crime against humanity"

Everyone here believes this?

No one cares to say that poster went to far with that one?

You wouldn't consider a hepatitis B shot for a baby born to a mother with hepatitis B or a rabies shot for yourself or your child if bitten by an obvious or known rabid dog?

We are being fed nonsense, the science is "silent".read this in the journal of neuro virology..."Recently, controversy has arisen as to the involvement of measles virus and/or the measles, mumps, rubella (MMR) vaccine in the development of autism. Biological assays lend support to the association between measles virus or MMR and autism whereas epidemiologic studies show no association between MMR and autism. Further research is needed to clarify both the mechanisms whereby viral infection early in development may lead to autism and the possible involvement of the MMR vaccine in the development of autism.

Thought I'd print the Bio on that physician who wrote that AWESOME comment that I just posted:

Dr. Rowen graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Johns Hopkins University (1971), followed by medical school at the University of California at San Francisco San Francisco (1975). He has been board certified and recertified by the American Boards of Family Practice and Emergency Medicine. He also served on the Alaska State Medical Board. Dr. Rowen is affectionately known as "The Father of Medical Freedom" for pioneering the nation's first law protecting alternative medicine in 1990, in Alaska.

Speaking of journalism and TRUTH, the following is one of the best written comments by a physician I've ever read. This physician gives his permission to re-print in full, provided his name is attached at the end.

I am happy to oblige:


NON-VAXXERS TO BE DECLARED "PUBLIC NUISANCES"
OPEN STATEMENT TO DORIT REISS
Professor at the University of California,
Hastings College of the Law, in San Francisco, California.
AND PLEASE SEE "POEM" AT END OF POST

"There just might be a rapid rush towards totalitarianism in the USA over vaccines. We’ve seen how the miasma of Pharma sickness-treatment comes from the ivory towers of the medicals schools, which should be teaching restoration of health, not the suppression of symptoms. Now we witness the move towards the final desecration of your most sacred possession (your body) coming from the ivory towers of law - the law schools themselves.

Dorit Reiss is a professor at the University of California Hastings College of the Law in San Francisco. She says, “We’re proposing a menu of options,” “We’re putting it out there and states can choose if they want to do any of this.”
According to the draft law, people who don’t follow vaccination recommendations promoted by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are a “public nuisance.” It also states that parents could be made to pay even if they qualify for religious or personal-belief exemptions from state-mandated vaccinations.
Imposing these costs is justified, the paper argues, as a deterrent, and to be fair to parents who do vaccinate. It would prevent non-vaccinating parents “from forcing others to pay for the risks created by their decisions.”
Reiss and her colleagues haven’t calculated how large no-vax taxes might be. But if a few families were held responsible for a major outbreak, bills sent after the event could be huge. (http://www.buzzfeed.com/…/these-professors-want-parents-who…)

Ms Reiss, do you remember those Tuskegee black folks with syphilis? Were they such a public nuisance that they should be deliberately denied, by the hands of those you are listening to and believing, a curative treatment? Is what you are proposing a tax upon those who refuse to participate in a similar Joseph Mengele inhumane type experiment on what vaccines do to us in the long run?

The American people were shocked to discover, for the first time in our history, that under Obamacare, we could be actually taxed for NOT doing something. Never before in America was there a tax imposed for inaction itself. With Obamacare, the tax is imposed if you don’t get disease maintenance insurance good enough to pass government oversight. Government has just discovered a great new power. In the past we were held accountable for our actions. Now we are to be held accountable for our inactions. With vaccines, it is getting even worse. We must consent to an assault.

From the ivory towers of law in the land of the American Republic, come calls for a tax on you as a public nuisance, if you don’t get vaccinated. As a physician myself, I ask what is becoming of this nation?

We are witnessing a mass hysteria over vaccines now. It is being whipped up into a frenzy by the media; a conglomeration we know is controlled by corporate interests; the same interests that own Pharma and own our alleged "government". This is the same type of frenzy that led to the rise of fascism in Europe some 80 years ago! Mussolini defined the merger of government and corporations as "fascism". In Nazi Germany, people were name called and labeled a danger to society for doing nothing to anyone else. Their crime was being born into a religion or a demonized people (like Gypsies). And here and now, for an inaction, you will be labeled a “public nuisance”. Of course you can avoid that label by getting injected with the current line-up of vaccines, and the 300 or so in the pipeline.

Consider this; if you were a corporation, and had paid off the rulers of the nation to get immunity for your products, wouldn’t you also then move to mandate your products be universally forced upon people without limit? There is nothing in history, no metaphor, no previous example, and no comparable analogy to which I can compare this save the tattoos engraved in the arms of the innocents at death camps. (Are not vaccines injected into arms?)

If I were a Jew in 1941, sitting in my home, minding my own business, I would have been rounded up as a public threat to the Reich, and sent off to the gas chamber. Now, I can be sitting home, minding my own business, and if I don’t submit to injections of God-knows-what, into my own body, I could be rounded up as a public nuisance and herded off to the taxman. And interestingly, if I do submit to vaccinations, and my child gets an injury, either I’ll have to pay for this injury for the rest of my life, my child might exist as a living corpse, or you will pay as well in the form of higher taxes and insurance premiums to support disease maintenance for my immune damaged child. Your own sweat will indemnify the Pharma corporations’ “pharming” of you for profit, since they bought “legal” immunity. I find this incomprehensible! I don’t understand why these erudite, self-proclaimed protectors of the public, are about to round you up, while they support blanket immunity for corrupt Pharma and fallout from vaccine induced injury!

I equate this to a modern day witch-hunt. I also see no difference between this type of mentality and the mentality of barbaric religious fanatics who view all those who see God differently than they do, as public nuisances and heretics, or apostates, deserving of death. This is only a matter of degree. Please show me that it is not simply a matter of degree. I don’t think that you can. Why stop at simply taxing me to pay for the diseases spread by the un-vaccinated, when the data is plain that the vaccinated are spreading the disease? Once you succeed in fining (taxing) me, or will you round me up as well?

In fairness, you should tax those vaccinated to pay for the immune dysfunction we see in the 26% of those vaccinated. That would be equal protection, Ms. Law Professor Reiss. Why stop at simply taxing me? Why not strip me of citizenship and deport me to a gas chamber? Then your child would not be at risk from mine. Why not behead me as a threat (apostate) which could poison the beliefs of your vaccine based religion? What we see here is just the beginning. I ask, “Where does this insanity end?”

With professors of law like you espousing such violations of Liberty, we really could plunge into a totalitarian state. I think the Ebola scare was testing the waters. The measles scare IS the waters. Please consider; there have been well over a hundred measles cases, 141 in fact as of this writing, and NO deaths. Hmmm. Clearly measles is not as deadly as they are making it sound. And, the majority of cases are in the vaccinated! As a physician and a citizen of this great country, I feel confounded by this! I am about to be taxed for not getting a vaccine for a disease which is not killing anyone in this era; a vaccine that is not working which is evidenced by the fact that most of the people getting the disease, are vaccinated! Additionally, I will be blamed for spreading the disease, although the majority of cases are spread BY the vaccinated!

Ms Reiss, China has shown us what it can do in the public interest by making criminals out of those who have more than one child. Stalin showed us what a totalitarian government could do to those who stood in the way of his idea of the collective. And you are showing us what the Pharma owned government will do to us for standing in the way of its horrific march to make a petrie dish (or caged animal) experiment out of all of us. Shame on you! I believe that you are disgrace to the principles of Liberty and the Founders of this Republic, which basic law is the Constitution; a document designed to protect individual Rights. People with similar mentality made a fine Minister of Propaganda for the Third Reich, and perhaps an even better architect of the Final Solution. It's only a matter of degree to which the mentality is carried.

In this week's local news were reports of home owners dispatching home invaders with self defense weapons. Will you next propose to declare such people as "public nuisances" and disarm them?

Please pro-vaxxers, awaken. Please see the bigger picture of what is happening here. History is repeating itself. Please see what is becoming of our beloved America, and the unseen danger marching towards a flash point far past the vaccine issue. Indeed, government has suggested "statinizing" (adding statin drugs) your water supply in the name of the now debunked cholesterol hypothesis (Cas Lek Cesk. 2012;151(5):243-7). Remember, I am NOT anti-vax. I am PRO-CHOICE.

Your rulers now are telling loving and caring parents that they know what it better for their children than the mother who gave birth to that child. California state senators Ben Allen and Richard Pan are rapidly moving to remove the philosophical and religious vaccine exemptions in my home state. Only time will tell how many people take this seriously enough to write either or both before it's too late. These senators need to do their own research on this issue and read the professional medical materials. I want them to quit listening to the drug company representatives and stop taking money from them as well! We were once a Republic, not the democracy we suffer today. In a democracy, 51% subjects the 49%. That is called "mob rule".

This evening Terri and I met with a physician who strongly believes in vaccines and will judiciously vaccinate her unborn child altering (delaying) timing and schedule as she sees fit for her child’s welfare. I was very pleasantly surprised when she admitted that it is a terrible thing to tell loving parents, who are trying to do the best they can for their offspring, that they will be denied a choice in the matter. And then I realized I should not have been so surprised. All physicians are taught this most basic tenant of medicine - "informed consent", "informed consent", "informed consent". I don’t have the right to inject someone with anything, inclusive of sugar water, without informed consent. The state does not have a license to practice medicine, and it is openly declaring that it is not bound by this ancient and sacred sacrament of medicine. How many people are now willing to speak out about the horrific expansion of police powers of the state? I wonder. When they win this one, what is next?"

"Bad journalism helped create the modern anti-vaccine movement in the United States..."


Oh, where to begin...

Bad journalism, huh; as in "How DARE 'they' print the TRUTH?" THAT journalism?

GOT IT.

Bad journalism did NOT cause the anti-vaccine movement. Untold greed, bad/junk science and TRUTH moved the so-called anti-vaccine movement forward.

Those that are caught up in the greed and lust for power/control over the masses may want others to believe it's 'bad journalism,' but far too many are awakening to the truth, i.e., that vaccines do more harm than good, that vaccines are NOT the end all, be all to optimal health.

THAT'S the truth. But of course, those that do not speak Truth, call anything that is, BAD journalism, BAD science, etc.

I feel sorry for you, Vincent. You were supposed to be a healer; that's why you went to medical school, isn't it?

Others in your field are daring to speak out; they dare to speak TRUTH, even when they know there will be severe repercussions should they do so.

You've been indoctrinated into a false belief system, Vincent. TIME. TO. WAKE. UP.

Bayareamom

..."Present vaccine technology and public health policy must be altered to deal with this eventuality."


Wonder what the hell that means (we can all take a wild stab)...

Kapoore

We are definitely in the heat of a battle. I don't know if everyone is waking up but definitely those that were on the fence or had a child with so called idiopathic injury. My husband said that the lady who cuts his hair related a story how a woman had told her that she has an autistic child after 8 vaccinations. The hairdresser didn't know anything about it but was alarmed. I think the publicity is helping some connect the dots. Unfortunately, it also seems to be creating a huge pushback from the powers that be and so we have to keep up our action to combat them. Every day I try to do at least one thing to make a difference. For example, I discovered that my husband still owned some big pharm stock...SOLD this morning when the office opened and I also told the rep that I have three people in my family that have suffered from medical debacles: a daughter with a vaccine, a father who died from a minor operation when he bled to death on the operating table, a mother who died five hours from a massive heart attack after they changed her heart medication. Some people don't connect the dots and others do, and the more that do, the greater the panic and distrust, and the harder it is to suppress the truth.

Hera

Dr Ianelli
Apparently the media is not being quite as compliant as you might wish
The Charlotte Observer" has an article ( 2/28/15 )
"former Mooreseville child compensated by federal vaccine court".
Angelica Black has cerebral palsy, a seizure disorder is non verbal and is wheelchair bound.

As Mrs Black states, some people are now trying to get her jailed.

After this, there continued to be more vaccine injuries in the family until they finally stopped vaccinating ( with their doctors approval.)
The next generation, one daughter vaccinated and her child lost verbal skills after the MMR. The other did not vaccinate and her unvaccinated child is fine.

But of course after the mandate, we can probably expect another "coincidental" injury. I wonder how badly the doctors will damage that child?

I wonder if any of them will be brave enough to give the child a medical exemption based on family history?


Parents are scared. I know of several who are willing to go to jail to protect their children from vaccine injury. But their kids will be forced to get vaccinated anyway.

Perhaps the worst thing you can ever do to a parent is to force them to deliberately, knowingly injure their child.

Words like "its okay because side effects are rare" don't cut it after brain damage, seizures or death.

And family history of autoimmune disorders or vaccine reactions?

Good luck trying to get a doctor who is willing to give a medical exemption for that.

And you think it is Jenny McCarthy who is no blame for anti vaccine sentiment?
I think not.

Vincent,

From 1984:

"Am J Epidemiol. 1984 Jul;120(1):39-48.

The future of measles in highly immunized populations. A modeling approach.

Levy DL.

Abstract

"Little is known about how an intensive measles elimination program changes the overall immune status of the population. A computer model was created to study the effect of the measles elimination program in the United States on the number of susceptibles in the population. The simulation reveals that in the prevaccine era, approximately 10.6% of the population was susceptible to measles, most of whom were children less than 10 years of age. With the institution of the measles immunization program, the proportion of susceptibles in the population fell to 3.1% from 1978 through 1981, but then began to rise by approximately 0.1% per year to reach about 10.9% in the year 2050. The susceptibles at this time were distributed evenly throughout all age groups. The model did not consider the potential effect of waning immunity. The results of this study suggest that measles elimination in the United States has been achieved by an effective immunization program aimed at young susceptibles combined with a highly, naturally immunized adult population. However, despite short-term success in eliminating the disease, long-range projections demonstrate that the proportion of susceptibles in the year 2050 may be greater than in the prevaccine era. Present vaccine technology and public health policy must be altered to deal with this eventuality."

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/6741921

Maybe you'd like to share *this* with your readers at About.com? This shows how public health authorities tampered with the human race without knowing where the experiment would lead. In fact, they did have an idea that in time the outcome would be worse than if they had left measles alone, since their original success in suppression of the disease was based on most of the population having robust permanent natural immunity. They still don't know how long vaccine immunity will last in each individual or if MMR given in old age will have any effect or be safe.

Who is William Thompson ?

Vincent can I get your take on the Maurice Hilleman recording ? the godfather of vaccine describing them as "bargain basement" healthcare .

Linda1

Vincent,

"Bad journalism helped create the modern anti-vaccine movement in the United States, starting with 'Vaccine Roulette' and going all the way down to the excessive coverage of Wakefield's papers and to putting Jenny McCarthy on Oprah and Larry King. You folks didn't seem to mind it then."

When I was growing up in the 1950s, I had playmates who were not vaccinated with the few vaccines available then. Their parents were staunchly anti-vaccine. At the time, Dr. Wakefield was a little boy and Jenny McCarthy was not yet born.

You are wet behind the ears, misguided and graceless in your approach to this issue.

Who is William Thompson ?

Vincent in (answer) to your own work :

Today we highlight an article that is especially relevant in the fight against vaccine misinformation. Dr. Vincent Iannelli has published a post on About.com Pediatrics that serves as a timeless and comprehensive guide that refutes the 40 most common vaccine myths. It is entitled Anti-Vaccine Myths and Misinformation and it provides a thorough investigation of vaccine related concerns while also including dozens of links that will allow readers to further research various aspects of immunizations.
The concerns addressed include the following:
1. Vaccines cause autism. (Why has the CDC paid out up to 1000 times with confidentiality clauses included then? SimpsonWood2001 , William Thompson ? even Gerberding admitted it to CNN )
2. No one else is at risk if I don’t vaccinate my kids. (Shouldn’t a vaccine work independent of what another person does or doesn’t do – seems obvious to me)
3. Shedding after vaccines gets people sick. (documented fact , vaccines shed the virus , and thus cause the spread of the disease – surely you arent disputing this ?)
4. Most people who get sick during outbreaks are vaccinated. (seems to be the case – vaccines are not working – 2 more Merck Mumps whistleblowers seem to think the efficacy has been lied about .)
5. Vaccines don’t really work. (Hepatitis B vaccine at birth – please give us your views on that ?) (I got the BCG growing up at school , consensus now says it doesn’t work & it has been discontinued ?)
6. Vaccine-preventable diseases aren’t really that serious. (Chicken Pox , Mumps – let discuss ? )
7. Big Pharma. (Big Evil ?)
8. Vaccines contain more mercury now than ever. (Themiserol is toxic at nano grams , parts per billion , and this has been known since 1948 , you have no room for maneouvre but I’d love to see you try ?)
9. A selective or alternative immunization schedule is safer. (I say vaccines are a criminal fraud start to finish . Look at the recent Kenya Tetanus sterilisation drive? )

13. Natural immunity is better than immunity from vaccination. (true)
14. Vaccines are not rigorously tested before being approved by the FDA. (lets discuss that one – hillairious that you even think you have a defence here ? remember Chad1000 or india49000 )
15. Herd immunity is not real. (why not make it 100% compulsory for all , all the Bildebergs , the Rockefellors , the Bill Gates , the Clintons , the UK Royal family)
16. I use PubMed to do my vaccine research. (we use every resource available , you better believe it , I particularly like the evidence with Poul Thoresens name on)
17. 10 vaccines in the 1980s ballooned into 36 in 2008 and into 49 now. (yeah the world is just one big long plague - thanks for saving us – correction plague of vaccine derived autism)

39. One more study. (still waiting for the vaccinated versus unvaccinated study ?)
40. The one-size fits all immunization schedule. (rubbish)

Who is William Thompson ?

Vincent – you really are struggling with these basic concepts :

STATEMENT OF WILLIAM W. THOMPSON, Ph.D., REGARDING THE 2004 ARTICLE EXAMINING THE POSSIBILITY OF A RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN MMR VACCINE AND AUTISM
My name is William Thompson. I am a Senior Scientist with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, where I have worked since 1998.
I regret that my coauthors and I omitted statistically significant information in our 2004 article published in the journal Pediatrics. The omitted data suggested that African American males who received the MMR vaccine before age 36 months were at increased risk for autism. Decisions were made regarding which findings to report after the data were collected, and I believe that the final study protocol was not followed.

Nice one Bayareamom Jenny Allan.

Please keep reading Vincent you have lot to learn open up your mind its shut.

Many thanks to His Eminence John Cardinal Njue you are saving your nation more than can be said for any leader of the "modern Westeren World" .YOU ARE SPECIAL.

the children are the future

MMR RIP

Who is William Thompson ?

Vincent Iannelli, MD

if you get a chance , this is worth your time .
I understand Diane Harper speaks around the 1 hr 11 minute mark . Only 3 days left so hurry .

And why dont you look at what Bernard D'Albergue (former Merck employee has to say on the subject of Gardakill)

Why dont you take a look at the before and after of poor Zeda Pingel and give us the full weight of your expert opinion regarding cause and causation .

Lastly , and most importantly , keep all your own personal vaccines fully up to date , for yourself and your entire extended family .

John Stone

Hi Vincent,

If your child had been injured by a vaccine rather than you making money by delivering them you might have a different perspective. Your media comments are absurd (as by the way are those emanating from google). Our campaigning has never enjoyed any favoured status in the media, we can't compete and never have with the mainstream: we only tell people what we know from our own experience and what we can document. This intolerance of any discussion reflects deeply on the integrity and ethics of those trying to enforce our silence by whatever means.

Jenny Allan

Statement from His Eminence John Cardinal Njue
Chairman-Kenya Conference of Catholic Bishops

Extract:-
"That we are dismayed by attempts to intimidate and blackmail medical professionals who have corroborated information about the vaccine, with threats of disciplinary action. We commend and support all professionals who have stood by the truth.

That we shall not waver in calling upon all Kenyans to avoid the tetanus vaccination campaign laced with Beta-HCG, because we are convinced that it is indeed a disguised population control programme."

Thank you for revealing this chilling statement Bayareamom.
If this can happen in Kenya it can happen ANYWHERE. The intimidation and vilification of medical professionals, and press and media persons who question or criticise corporate and political vaccine policies, particularly those issues of ethics, safety, efficacy and necessity, is already happening in our so called Western democracies.

The mumps component of the MMR vaccine is already failing to protect young adults from contracting mumps, when it can cause sterility in males. Strangely, in spite of all the manic fuss over a few measles cases, many already vaccinated against measles, Dr Wakefield is seldom blamed for those far more common mumps outbreaks in our colleges and universities.

Is this what Bill Gates REALLY means when he bangs on about population control?

Vincent Iannelli, MD

"This is not about journalism reporting what is happening, it's about journalism making things happen with their reporting."

Bad journalism helped create the modern anti-vaccine movement in the United States, starting with 'Vaccine Roulette' and going all the way down to the excessive coverage of Wakefield's papers and to putting Jenny McCarthy on Oprah and Larry King. You folks didn't seem to mind it then.

Although there are still plenty of examples of journalists who incorporate false balance into their stories, they have gotten much better at covering science based stories.

Vincent Iannelli, MD

Why didn't the article/study actually look at HPV vaccination rates? Despite what these researchers say about the effects of media attention, the vaccination rates have been steadily increasing in boys and girls.

IN FULL:

Stand by the Truth (John 8: 32)

Preamble,

"Dear Christians, fellow Kenyans and all people of good will, We, the Catholic Bishops in Kenya, meeting at St. Mary’s Pastoral Center in Nakuru, greet you in the name of Our Lord.

During our weeklong Ordinary Plenary Assembly, we have taken stock and reflected deeply on the state of the nation and have identified the following issues of great concern:

1. Insecurity

As we gathered to start our meeting, we received the sad news of the killing of scores of security officers at Kapedo and other areas in the nothern frontier. The horrific event is a sad reminder of the state of the alarming level of insecurity in our country, and only the latest in a series of events across the country in which many Kenyans have lost their lives.

We share the pain of the families and friends who have lost their dear ones. It is sad, that despite many promises that come after such catastrophes, nothing gets done and the same tragic cycle is repeated soon thereafter.

For example, the Government promised stern action after Kenyans lost their lives in Lamu County. To date, only two people have been taken to court.

How many more Kenyans, including security officers, must lose their lives before real order is restored? We now want to state categorically, that time has come for less talk and more action.

One major cause of rampant insecurity in parts of this country is inequitable development. It is regretable, that despite 50 years of independence, some parts of this country have not seen meaningful development, with no roads, no schools and other essential social services.

We reiterate that peace and development are inseparable: there can be no peace without development; and no development without peace.

To ensure lasting security in the country, it is imperative that the Government ensures that National resources and services are equitably distributed.

At the same time, the Government must ensure that all disputed boundaries in the country are clearly demarcated to stem simmering tensions between counties over newly discovered mineral resources.

We are deeply concerned about clear lapses in our Government’s security response mechanisms. News that the slain officers at Kapedo appealed for backup and no response was forthcoming for more than 30 hours, is a clear indication that there are dangerous gaps in our security apparatus, and that there is an urgent need for overhaul.

This is not the first time that we are raising this issue with the Government.

2. The Tetanus Vaccine

Dear Kenyans, due to the direction the debate on the ongoing Tetanus Vaccine campaign in Kenya is taking, We, the Catholic Bishops, in fulfilling our prophetic role, wish to restate our position as follows:

The Catholic Church is NOT opposed to regular vaccines administered in Kenya, both in our own Church health facilities and in public health institutions.

However, during the second phase of the Tetanus vaccination campaign in March 2014, that is sponsored by WHO/UNICEF, the Catholic Church questioned the secrecy of the exercise. We raised questions on whether the tetanus vaccine was linked to a population control program that has been reported in some countries, where a similar vaccine was laced with Beta- HCG hormone which causes infertility and multiple miscarriages in women.

On March 26, 2014 and October 13, 2014, we met the Cabinet Secretary in-charge of health and the Director of Medical Services among others and rasied our concerns about the Vaccine and agreed to jointly test the vaccine. However the ministry did not cooperate and the joint tests were not done.

The Catholic Church struggled and acquired several vials of the vaccine, which we sent to Four unrelated Government and private laboratories in Kenya and abroad.

We want to announce here, that all the tests showed that the vaccine used in Kenya in March and October 2014 was indeed laced with the Beta- HCG hormone.

On 13th of October 2014, the Catholic Church gave copies of the results to the cabinet secretary and the Director of Medical Services. The same was emailed to the Director of Medical Services on October 17, 2014.

Based on the above grounds, We, the Catholic Bishops in Kenya, wish to State the following:

That we are shocked at the level of dishonesty and casual manner in which such a serious issue is being handled by the Government.

That a report presented to the Parliamentary Committee on Health November 4, 2014 by the Ministry of Health, claiming that the Government had tested the Vaccine and found it clean of Beta- HCG hormone, is false and a deliberate attempt to distort the truth and mislead 42 million Kenyans.

That we are dismayed by attempts to intimidate and blackmail medical professionals who have corroborated information about the vaccine, with threats of disciplinary action. We commend and support all professionals who have stood by the truth.

That we shall not waver in calling upon all Kenyans to avoid the tetanus vaccination campaign laced with Beta-HCG, because we are convinced that it is indeed a disguised population control programme.

3. Corruption and National Values

Dear Kenyans, we mourn the persistence of chronic corruption in all sectors of society-from the national police recruitment exercise that was nullified due to corruption concerns, national examinations whose integrity has been lost, land grabbing, missing land and court files, and disturbing reports of misappropriation of public resources.

We shall not get tired of reminding the Government and all Kenyans, that corruption is a cancer that is swiftly eating into every part of our society; one that is robbing our children of their legacy. Unless there is a united front against this vice, we will lose our Nation to forces of evil.

4. Conclusion

Dear Kenyans, and people of good will, We, the Catholic Bishops in Kenya, urge you to remain prayerful and vigilant. We want to assure you, that we shall not tire of reminding the Government of its constitutional mandate to you, dear Kenyans, to protect lives and provide basic services-that is our pledge to you.

May the Lord guide you and keep you safe now and forever more."

November 6th , 2014

Signed

His Eminence John Cardinal Njue

Chairman-Kenya Conference of Catholic Bishops


How on EARTH ANYONE can refute the claims of so-called anti-vaxxers, after reading even just the above, is beyond me.

This is just so damned disgusting...not to mention completely immoral.

If you have any doubts please know that you are informing many who gave little thought to vaccines and autism.
I have learned so much from your site and your stories.
I take some small solace from dr thompsons statements.
In the lyme community we have a hero who took on the cdc, dr masters, a family practice dr who fought to get borreliosis in missouri acknowledged.
His interview with pamela weintraub at psychology today is illuminating (available online) about cdc interaction as is her book Cure Unknown.
He is famously quoted as saying "absence of proof is not proof of absence," as the officials kept telling him well you havent proved that its borreliosis. He told them to check their job description.
I hope there are more men and women of honor in the scientific and regulatory community, but i take my hat off to you all for diligently working for the same goal, truth.

Bayareamom

Thanks, Linda1, for posting that link. Here's another statement from Jon's article:

..."In the field of medical fraud, an area I’ve been researching for 25 years, the conclusions of standard published studies (which are brimming with lies) will occupy page after page of top Google rankings.

Let me offer a counter-example to the Google “knowledge team.” Here is a woman who has examined, up close and personal, more medical studies in her career than the entire workforce of Google. She is Dr. Marcia Angell. For 20 years, she was an editor at The New England Journal of Medicine.

On January 15, 2009, the New York Review of Books published her stunning statement: “It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of The New England Journal of Medicine.”

In two sentences, Angell carries more weight than 20,000 blowhard “science bloggers,” to say nothing of lying drug companies and that criminal agency called the FDA.

Angell torpedoes an entire range of medical literature, based on her hard-won experience.

But you can be sure that when it comes to “medical facts,” the Google “truth team” will ascribe absolutely no merit (ranking) to her conclusion or its implications.

You may say, “But these search engines are already slanting the truth.”

The new Google program is going to double down. It’s going to set up its own Ministry of Truth. It’s going to standardize algorithms that unerringly bring about officially favored lies..."


Sounds a bit like Harry Potter, yes? Only this time, IT'S REAL...

Here's the thing Jimmy Kimmel

Someone sent a link showing a Jimmy Kimmel piece that made fun of people who either do not vaccinate or are wary of the safety of vaccination. Here's the thing, Jimmy. If you have ever had a loved one suffer a confirmed vaccine injury then mocking us really isn't the direction you want to go in. We think it's hysterically funny yet at the same time poignantly pathetic that doctors and vaccine studies are so laughably biased. And Jenny McCarthy, great as she is, foes not inform us all in our health choices.
Really, what could be more fucking funny than that wanted fucking felon, Poul Thorsen, adding in outpatient autism diagnoses while thimerosal was decreased so that it actually fucking appears that lessening thimerosal increased the autism rate. You just can't make shit like that up, asshole.

Breaking: Google gives new meaning to “Orwellian”

Becomes Ministry of Truth

By Jon Rappoport

http://www.nomorefakenews.com

“…if all records told the same tale — then the lie passed into history and became truth.” (1984, George Orwell)

The New Scientist has the stunning story (2/28/15, “Google wants to rank websites based on facts not links,” by Hal Hodson):

“THE internet is stuffed with garbage. Anti-vaccination websites make the front page of Google, and fact-free ‘news’ stories spread like wildfire. Google has devised a fix – rank websites according to their truthfulness.”

"politicians and journalists should realize that politicizing vaccines — and reporting on the resulting conflict — can weaken the public’s support for vaccination."

Duh .. vaccines have ALWAYS been "politicized" .. mainly through extraordinarily generous financial "campaign contributions" by the vaccine cartel .. that provides state and federal legislators the MONEY they NEED .. to meet the ever-increasing FINANCIAL COST of campaigning for office.

Obviously, those "campaign contributions" were well spent .. providing the vaccine cartel their very own "VACCINE COURT" .. thereby guaranteeing "product liability" protections that no other product in the world enjoys.

Unlike State and Federal claims courts .. has a decision by the VACCINE COURT SPECIAL MASTERS ever required a vaccine manufacturer to provide a SAFER vaccine? I think not.

In any event .. "Politicians and journalists" .. who appear hell-bent on seizing this latest measles outbreak as an opportunity to further deny parents their "informed consent" rights in an ever-widening number of States .. should tread forward very carefully .. because .. the absolutely LAST place they want to "weaken the public's support for vaccination .. is in the COURT OF PUBLIC OPINION .. where their "unrelenting (biased) reporting" has taken them.

Linda1

This is not about journalism reporting what is happening, it's about journalism making things happen with their reporting. Manipulation of the masses with pure propaganda. What should we tell the population and how, in order to get them to think and do what we want? Starting with an end behavioral goal and then making up the story, evaluating the response and then tweaking accordingly.

Absolutely disgusting.
