Planning a Family Vacation with a Child on the Autism Spectrum
Dachel Media Update: Summertime Blues

"CDC a Cesspool of Corruption"

Kennedy AlbanyBy Anne Dachel

Thanks to, Robert Kennedy, Jr. finally has a chance to have his voice heard.  The mainstream U.S. media, while pretending to legitimately cover the controversy over vaccine safety, merely gives us the pro-pharma side.  Almost without exception, the press has spent the last decade and a half telling us that only one study has ever linked vaccines to autism and that research and the researcher have been fully discredited.  All subsequent science has shown no link. 

Reporters censor any information from the growing list of hundreds of experts whose work raises serious concerns about side effects from our aggressive vaccination schedule.  And they really don't want to hear anything Robert Kennedy has to say on the subject.  He has way too much science on his side.

No other medical product has ever been so universally promoted and defended as safe and effective by doctors, health officials and news sources.  In the face of increasing concern on the part of parents, these groups have only dug in their heels and become more adamant in their claims.  With Robert Kennedy, Jr, a well known environmentalist with a lot of credibility, now the leading figure in the vaccine choice movement, this debate is all over the public arena.

The vaccine defenders (doctors in white coats connected to prestigious institutions) are constantly in the news assuring us that the schedule is safe beyond question because all the science is in, in addition to reminding us that vaccination is an obligation for all parents.  It's easy to understand why the following article by Robert Kennedy wasn't published by the New York Times or any other big name news source.  It challenges everything they've sworn is truth for years.  Only had the courage and the ethics to put this out.

Kennedy paints a sorry picture of the "cesspool of corruption" at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the agency that approves, recommends and vigorously promotes the vaccination schedule.  The vast web of corporate ties at the CDC make it appear that they're owned and operated by the industry they're charged with overseeing.  Pharma money also seems to control our national elected representatives and state legislatures, and it has the ability to create a media frenzy over a measles outbreak that was nothing out of the ordinary. Congressional hearings and an agency whistleblower all demonstrate how bad things are at the CDC, but no one seems to notice.  The tight control the liability-free vaccine industry has over the press means that charges like the ones Kennedy makes here will never willingly be reported. 

July 17, 2015, Vaccines, government & Big Pharma's dirty money, by Robert Kennedy, Jr.

Editors note: This column by Robert F. Kennedy Jr. was rejected for publication by major newspapers. Mr. Kennedy published it in USA Today as a paid advertisement. WND posts it here in full.

. . .Vaccines are big business. Pharma is a trillion-dollar industry with vaccines accounting for $25 billion in annual sales.CDC's decision to add a vaccine to the schedule can guarantee its manufacturer millions of customers and billions in revenue with minimal advertising or marketing costs and complete immunity from lawsuits. High stakes and the seamless marriage between Big Pharma and government agencies have spawned an opaque and crooked regulatory system. Merck, one of America's leading vaccine outfits, is currently under investigation for deceiving FDA regulators about the effectiveness of its MMR vaccine. Two whistleblowers say Merck ginned up sham studies to maintain Merck's MMR monopoly.

Big money has fueled the exponential expansion of CDC's vaccine schedule since 1988, when Congress' grant of immunity from lawsuits suddenly transformed vaccines into pay dirt. CDC recommended five pediatric vaccines when I was a boy in 1954. Today's children cannot attend school without at least 56 doses of 14 vaccines by the time they're 18. . . .

And who is

WND, formerly WorldNetDaily, can best be explained by its mission statement:"WND is an independent news company dedicated to uncompromising journalism, seeking truth and justice and revitalizing the role of the free press as a guardian of liberty. We remain faithful to the traditional and central role of a free press in a free society - as a light exposing wrongdoing, corruption and abuse of power.

"We also seek to stimulate a free-and-open debate about the great moral and political ideas facing the world and to promote freedom and self-government by encouraging personal virtue and good character."

Kennedy's words echo what Emmy-award winning journalist and author Sharyl Attkisson said three months ago. On April 25, 2015, in What the News Isn't Saying About Vaccine-Autism Studies, Attkisson reported that we can't always trust the official science exonerating vaccines from serious side effects like autism.  She followed the money and revealed that much of the pro-vaccine science is tainted by corporate ties, or what Attkisson calls "the vaccine industry and its government partners." She also named well-credentialed experts from prestigious institutions who disagree with the official findings and asked why we never hear about their work. 

April 25, 2015, What the News Isn't Saying About Vaccine-Autism Studies, by Sharyl Attkisson

It's theoretically possible that all of the studies supporting a possible link between vaccines and autism are wrong. And, if the propagandists are to be believed, each of the researchers is an incompetent crank, quack, nut or fraud (and, of course, "anti-vaccine" for daring to dabble in research that attempts to solve the autism puzzle and leads to vaccine safety issues). The scientists and their research are "controversial," simply because the propagandists declare them to be.

The disparaged scientists include well-published neurologists, pharmacists, epidemiologists, immunologists, PhD's, chemists and microbiologists from places like Boston Children's Hospital, Horizon Molecular Medicine at Georgia State University, University of British Columbia, City College of New York, Columbia University, Stony Brook University Medical Center, University of Northern Iowa, University of Michigan, University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, Arkansas Children's Hospital Research Institute, Al Azhar University of Cairo, Kinki University in Japan, the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, Swinburne University of Technology in Australia, Institute of Psychiatry and Neurology in Poland, Department of Child Health Care, Children's Hospital of Fudan University in China, Utah State University and many more.

Their work is, at best, ignored by the media; at worst, viciously attacked by the predictable flock of self-appointed expert "science" bloggers who often title their blogs with the word "science" or "skeptics" to confer an air of legitimacy.

Take heart.  Times are changing very quickly here.  The day when the media could denounce the claims of "a discredited British doctor" and "a former Playboy Bunny" and act like the issue of vaccine safety was settled is over.  The medical-industrial-media complex now has to deal with some credible voices, namely a successful environmental attorney with a recognized name and an outstanding journalist.  And Kennedy and Attkisson are not alone. Scholars are aware of the pseudoscience surrounding many medical products.  Articles and studies are out there exposing the corruption.  These reports come from places like Harvard University.

Institutional Corruption of Pharmaceuticals and the Myth of Safe and Effective Drugs   

Risky Drugs: Why The FDA Cannot Be Trusted

I recently become aware of the work of a recognized expert in medical ethics, Harriet Washington.  She is an author who knows the true depth of deceit surrounding modern health care. 

Washington has been a fellow in ethics at the Harvard Medical School, a fellow at the Harvard School of Public Health, and a senior research scholar at the National Center for Bioethics at Tuskegee University.   

Her book Medical Apartheid  won the 2007 National Book Critics Circle Award for Nonfiction.  It was reviewed by the Washington Post  and the New York Times

She also knows that there are serious concerns when it comes to vaccine safety.  On page 295 in Medical Apartheid, Washington wrote,

"Between 1987 and 1991, U.S. researchers administered as much as 500 times the approved dosage of the experimental Edmonton Zagreb (EZ) measles vaccine to African Americans and Hispanic babies in black neighborhoods of Los Angeles.  The parents of these children did not know mammoth overdoses were being administered nor that the vaccine was experimental.  They also did not know that the vaccine had been given to two thousands Haitian children. . .with disastrous results.  EZ-vaccinated children, all  poor, began to sicken and die by the hundreds there and throughout countries in the Third World."

She also wrote the book, Deadly Monopolies.  This is about "the shocking corporate takeover of life itself--and the consequences for your health and our medical future." 

Members of the press who ignore all the concerned voices speaking out are simply making themselves irrelevant.  They tell us that a corporate controlled health care system is nothing to worry about, but to any thinking person it's clear that profit becomes the prime motivation.  Safety and efficacy are incidental at best, especially if the product (vaccines) can be mandated and the manufacturers have no liability.  Currently there are no checks and balances when it comes to our medical care. The industry bought all the overseers quite a while ago; we're just beginning to notice.

@Linda1; thanks for your perfect answer, "NO"

If anybody actually reviews the Ebola Hysteria manufactured by the U.S. CDC they will find the fatalities were alleged about 5% of the usual African mortality via such hemmorphragic fevers of many sorts, but instead ascribed to "Ebola."

The CDC and WHO manufacture and fabricate their hysterias - it's crystal clear.


"Does Ebola being manufactured to declare martial law count? Robin Williams and demonic powers? "


WND Observer
I politely ask you for an example of "radical right-wing claptrap" by WND. Yes, WND is surely conservative in many ways, but that is not "claptrap" except from your mindset.

Does Ebola being manufactured to declare martial law count? Robin Williams and demonic powers? There is no shortage.

@ Lawrence,

WHAT Schedule do you refer when you say "I will point out that I am not the "Larry" that commented below - and no, the Flu Vaccine and HPV Vaccine are not on the schedule....HepB is, but it can be given at any time between birth and the start of kindergarten."

For over 24 years now, the CDC Child Immunization Schedule (applied by inept/ignorant pediatricians and School Systems' equally ignorant nurses) has directed birthing nurses to inject the HepB vaccines into newborns beginning the day of birth, then again at 2 months, 4 months, 6 months (NOT "any time between birth and -- kindergarten" as you believe).

The Flu shot by the same insane CDC Schedule has infants injected at 6 months, again at 7 months, then every year; You SHOULD know these infant Flu shots going into 8 pound babies are but 1/2 the dose volume going into 200 pound adults. So, the two shots for fragile immature BABIES at 6 & 7 months have the combined amount of various toxins (every substance in a vaccine is toxic just so you know) that fully mature adults receive.

ALSO, only in the last 4-5 years have about 50% of Flu shots been from single vial doses that are claimed to have but a "trace" of ethyl mercury, whereas as Flu shots until then all had 25 micrograms of ethly mercury for each baby shot and then 50 micrograms of said mercury at age 24 months, on and on every year.

Lawrence, WHAT Immunization Schedule are you talking about? Can you imagine any adult submitting to take a Flu Shot from a syringe the size of a picnic-sized salt shaker?? This syringe containing 500 micrograms of ethyl mercury? Go ahead, you first.

Bottom line?

So they're saying the crazies support Trump. LOL there sure are a lot of is crazies who don't like the vaccine agenda. I think what's so appealing about Trump is that the whole country views government and MSM as a cesspit. Pharma must be really worried about what he would say about them!


I will point out that I am not the "Larry" that commented below - and no, the Flu Vaccine and HPV Vaccine are not on the schedule....HepB is, but it can be given at any time between birth and the start of kindergarten.

@ Larry - your statement:

"Speaking of cesspools, take a look at -- radical right-wing claptrap pretending to have journalistic ethics".

My response:

I politely ask you for an example of "radical right-wing claptrap" by WND. Yes, WND is surely conservative in many ways, but that is not "claptrap" except from your mindset.

Speaking of "claptrap" what do you call what the NY Times, et al. who promote the Vaccine Schedule that has wrought its carnage the last 30+ years? Such Schedule promoted by the NY Times, et al., and whose Editorial Executives and Columnists that continue to slander those countless families that have been utterly ruined by such vaccines?

"Speaking of cesspools, take a look at -- radical right-wing claptrap pretending to have journalistic ethics.

With all due respect .. perhaps you can recommend a "left-wing" site that has proven itself to be a prime example of "journalistic ethics"?

John Stone

The United States has the best politicians money can buy. What people might perceive is that Trump is unimpressed and an untimidated by all the usual facade, because he is rich enough to ignore it all.

Bottom line?

I'd just like someone to confirm this for me about SB277. Does it mean that parents must have their child vaccinated for hep B, Gardasil, yearly flu shots? That was my understanding and I think it bears repeating and broadcasting. Many people didn't mind a few Tdaps or MMR but pushing more could just be the tipping factor for many. Personally I completely support full opt out of any vaccines by parents but I think we really need to stress that SB277 is forcing all of them.


I highly doubt that poll result. Other polls show that up to 40% are uncertain of the science. And just because people by and large support the program, doesn't mean they support the mandating of every vaccine on the schedule. I know many who would never get flu shots for themselves or their children and many opt out of Gardasil or hep b. Why else are they ramming in all these vaccine laws? They are nervous about election results (look at the midterms) and the demise of their program.

Jan- tough, this is the new normal when mainstream will not cover anything honestly. Why do you think Trump is still this popular even after some pretty big gaffes.


Speaking of cesspools, take a look at -- radical right-wing claptrap pretending to have journalistic ethics. Yes, it does matter who you associate with. WND is free to promote the views of Age of Autism, but for Age of Autism to promote WND without criticism is unconscionable.


Ohhhh, we have all been Pharmed --- Oh that is exactly right-- cultured - and harvested --


We need to get over the brainwashing/social conditioning that the message must be screened through the credibility of its publisher and affiliations and discarded altogether if it isn't from a "brand" name. The source is RFK Jr. and the team of scientists who contributed to his book, NOT WND. But even if the message was from a WND writer, we should listen with open minds. How many people turn away from or won't even visit AOA because it isn't the NYT?

Left, right, up, down, black, white, straight, gay, etc. etc. etc. the labels are endless...we need to remember three things: we are all human, we are all being PHARMED, we are all victims. We have to break down all these label barriers, constructed by the PHARMERS to keep us apart, weak and vulnerable, and UNITE against this common foe.

david m burd

@ Jan,

Since WND takes no advertising money from Pharma they actually - (like Kennedy, Jr. and Donald Trump and, yes, AoA and NVIC, VCC (Vaccine Choice Canada) - are not shy about printing factual happenings, and independent columnists,

It's pretty amazing you denigrate WND. Would you care to cite any of their stories that stray into political propaganda, as do all our Mainstream Media?

Please, cite a few instances where WND distorts or lies?

Angus Files

As they say round here "take it when you can get it,not when you need it" and boy! do we need any leg up we can get jus now .

Thanks WND Robert Kennedy Jr et-al

@ rtp

"Apparently according to some people on this site, we can't have support from people unless they have the 'proper' views on everything else."

I whole-heartedly agree .. and .. it is especially frustrating .. since we all seem to agree the "main stream media" has been thoroughly corrupted on vaccine issues .. has been for decades ..

Apparently .. no matter how corrupt the main-stream media .. especially the most prestigious outlets .. like the NY Times, CBS/ABC/NBC, Forbes .. on and on .. in fact ... I cannot name ONE television station, newspaper, magazine or internet blog .. that has given vaccines a "fair and balanced" discussion. NOT ONE.

As for myself .. I say .. Thank God for WND .. they at least have the courage to print what the other .. "prestigious media outlets" .. have refused .. once again .. to print RFK's comments when given the opportunity to do so.

Barry Stern

Just this week Time magazine had an article "Why science is winning the vaccine wars" citing a public opinion poll showing greater parental support for vaccines. People like Robert Kennedy, Jr. must be getting through for Time to take the time to write such stuff. Two-thirds of Time's advertising revenue comes from Pharma. Just count the number of drug ads in each issue. As Kennedy and others have said, "Follow the money and you begin to understand the world."


A Right Wing news organization publishing an article by a well known son of a well known Democrat. Perhaps the two party system is the one off the rails.

Perhaps it was a way of dividing Americans into teams and keeping us divided, as the pick us dry and change the Constitution
and take away our Republic


Apparently according to some people on this site, we can't have support from people unless they have the 'proper' views on everything else.

The fact is that the left (other than those who have experienced severe vaccine reactions (and often not even then)) will always be prejudiced towards vaccines because the idea that the government can manipulate people to good health is such an attractive idea to them.

"Mainstream" rightists are no better given their love of corporations and desire not to be seen as outside the status quo.

Libertarians on the other hand are the one group we have a good chance with given that they are naturally prejudiced against the idea that the government should be forcing things on people or teaming up with corporations and they don't mind having unpopular viewpoints. If you tell a leftist that the polio vaccine didn't lead to a reduction in the number of paralysed/crippled children they will just spend the next hour trying to rationalise that fact. If you tell it to a libertarian they may just be a little intrigued. And if they hear that fact from a hundred of us then that 'little intrigue' will turn into insatiable curiosity.

Our momentum will start with libertarian on line journals (at the moment we have Lew Rockwell and Infowars that I know of). We should be looking at getting the likes of Breitbart and The Blaze on our side. Fox news and the Wall Street Journal are out of the question for the time being unfortunately.

You can try the likes of Mother Jones if you want but the writers there would (probably correctly) believe that if they were to write anything critical of vaccinations then it would jeopardise their careers at other left wing journals. Certainly that is the case with Huffington Post now.


just popped over to the WND site as I had never heard of it... for me what is so frustrating is that the only people who seem to take the vaccine issue seriously present themselves as pretty much off the rails on a lot of other topics. 95% of the people I know who believe vaccines and big pharma are a problem, or who at the very least are open minded to the prospect, will blanch if I direct them to a website like WND. It's disheartening to know that there are so many folks whose eyes could be opened if it wasn't presented in places like WND.

John Stone


All too likely, and completely misses the point that governments and agencies can purchase whatever science they like to to support policy.


Could that commenter named "Brian" @ the end of the RFK article be Brian Deer?


Yes, Benedetta.

Ever wonder why there are no stories about organized crime in the news anymore?


Bob:Esp since the trade embargo is being lifted. I am filled with feelings that there are more sleazy back room deals done by our government officials than any mafia boss in a gaming room of a speak easy. So, every action, every change in policy is suspect.

Gardasil was a "game changer" about 10 years ago.

It will be another 30 years before we know if cervical cancer rates (about 1.5% in women ages 45-55) are actually going DOWN due to millions of doses of Gardasil in 9-11 year old girls.

There is far more money to be made with selling a liability free vaccine for lung cancer from Cuba... which will then allow Americans to smoke all the Cuban cigars they wish...

Bob Moffitt

Unfortunately I am a self-identified "conspiracy nut" .. but .. in my own defense .. I did not get there without ample justification for my loss of trust in our medical profession .. as defined by RFK's comments .. most especially .. our public health bureaucracies.

Consider .. yesterday on Foxnews .. "Sunday Housecall" .. resident foxnews contributor Dr Marc Siegal reported on "new vaccine from Cuba" .. which was described as a "game changer" .. for people ALREADY suffering from metatastic lung cancer that has spread throughout their body and really don't have any other hope.

Apparently, studies in Cuba show people with lung cancer survive for 5 years which is an incredible increase in survival life.

As I understand it .. this "vaccine" would more accurately be described as similar to penicillin or other antibiotics .. as a potentially successful "treatment drug" in patients already ravaged with lung cancer .. as far as I could tell .. it is not presently being used as a "prevention vaccine" for lung cancer.

In any event ... Dr. Siegal specifically stated it would not become part of the recommended and approved vaccines for children .. even though a doctor in Cuba speculated as a "vaccine" .. it could possibly prevent cancer in people at high risk for lung cancer ..and .. potentially may help prevent all types of cancer ..

There I go again .. "conspiracy" to create a "vaccine" out of a "treatment" drug .. which as a "treatment" is worth far less than as a "preventive vaccine" .. which would have the financial reward of a huge global mass market .. and .. NO PRODUCT LIABILITY in the United States.

Cuba is going to love producing and marketing product liability free vaccines in the US.
