One Lie Two Many: From Vietnam to Vaccines, the CDC is Exposed for a Second Time in the New Book Vaccine Whistleblower
It appears that the only thing dirtier than the ingredients found in vaccines is the science behind vaccine safety.
In the new book, Vaccine Whistleblower: Exposing the Autism Research Fraud at the CDC, attorney Kevin Barry has provided context to a series of tapes that were recorded last summer by Brian Hooker, PE, PhD, with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) senior epidemiologist Dr. William Thompson.
Had someone not blown the whistle on the CDC whistleblower last August 2014, Thompson would have divulged a lot more. Needless to say, when he was outed last August, with the most powerful people in the media and government away on vacation, by the time Labor Day came around the story had lost its lift.
Being outed prematurely forced Dr. Thompson to hire a law firm that specializes in protecting whistleblowers against retaliation.
Press Release on Dr. William Thompson
After Dr. Thompson introduced himself in the August 27, 2014, presser, he stated:
“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.”
Today, outed for a second time with the book being published by Skyhorse Publishing (disclosure: my publisher for 3 upcoming books) without Thompson’s permission, the “raw” tapes, which had been transcribed, evolved into a coherent narrative on some of the darker elements of the “science of justification,” allegedly perpetrated by the agency that is tasked with the health, wellbeing and prevention of diseases of Americans.
Since 2000, parents of autistic children have suspected that the United States’ childhood immunology program has run amok with as many as three times the number of vaccines given to U.S. children than any other nation in the world.
That stunning fact is exposed on page 107 of Vaccine Whistleblower, which shows the 1983 versus the 2015 vaccine schedule. In the former, a baby received 10 shots for three types of vaccines from the age of 2 months to four years old. In the latter, today’s infants receive more than a dozen vaccines with 27 injections by the time they are six years old.
The parents’ generation of the more than one million children on the spectrum doesn’t have anywhere near as many autistic adults as there are children today.
Such conspicuous numbers have been hard for the CDC to digest, spin and write off with the canard that skyrocketing rates in autism incidence (from 1-in-10,000 in 1960 to 1-in-68 babies today) have been due to “better diagnosis.” (autism rates CDC)
Because the CDC has for too long succeeded in quieting dissent on vaccine safety issues, by labeling anyone opposed to its view with the new Scarlet Letter ‘A’ for “Anti-vaccine,” it has failed to remove the growing elephants in the room: The soaring rates of autism and the vaccine manufacturers’ holy grail of saving money in thimerosal that causes “tics,” as Dr. Thompson told Hooker over and again during their thirty conversations.
The neuro-toxin thimerosal is a mercury-based preservative used in some vaccines, from the annual flu shots recommended to pregnant women—even after the CDC admitted they were ineffective against last winter’s strain of influenza—to tetanus and most vaccines exported overseas.
“‘Thimerosal from vaccines causes tics.’ Thompson tells us, ‘I can say tics are four times more prevalent in kids with autism. There is biologic plausibility right now to say that Thimerosal causes autism-like features.’”
In another section: “Dr. Thompson says the ‘CDC has put the research ten years behind.’ Dr. Thompson’s MMR paper was published in 2004. The Verstraeten and Madsen papers were published in 2003. The signals on the possible connection between vaccination and autism and other adverse events like tics and verbal IQ were not accurately reported by researchers. Because the CDC researchers omitted significant data, the flow of research was diverted away from vaccination.”
Such insider revelations populate Vaccine Whistleblower and paint the CDC and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which is charged with approving new vaccines coming on the market, as incompetent at best, and “crooked,” as Thompson calls his agency.
CDC Cooks Data
Other words Dr. Thompson used to describe the CDC’s cooking of data to meet its end goal that all vaccines are safe: “Watered down” his studies; “omitted” data on subsets of children in the 350+ African-American children left out of Thompson’s MMR vaccine study; “paralyzed” the CDC and “the whole system is paralyzed right now”; and “delayed” with the tactic of using children in studies who are seven years old and up, so that “people with financial resources could bring in things to essentially ameliorate any deficits that might have occurred,” he said.
These revelations are carried throughout Vaccine Whistleblower. Had this been the first time the CDC hired foreign scientists and directed its own epidemiologists to “find nothing,” as in no association between vaccines and autism, one could say that it was an anomaly of corruption, much the way the New York City Police Dept. limped through its corrupt days of the early 1970s.
But the CDC had invented the template for studies to “find no causation” decades ago. That in-house design extends all the way back to the Reagan Administration. From 1983 to 1987, Congress appointed CDC to find links between Agent Orange, with the U.S. Air Force’s Operation Ranch Hand during the Vietnam War, and the U.S. troops on the ground that fell ill with rare cancers many years later.
The Agent Orange Coverup: A Case of Flawed Science and Political Manipulation report, published by the 101st Congress on August 9, 1990, revealed CDC spent $51 million out of a budgeted $71 million, but quit doing the study in 1987, claiming there was not enough field data to finish the study. That despite the fact the U.S. Army had archived the field records on troop deployments in Pennsylvania, a short drive from Washington, DC, where the Congressional hearings took place.
CDC’s Dr. Coleen Boyle, who was the principle investigator, stood at the proscenium of the Agent Orange studies. Since then, she has been promoted all the way up to director of CDC’s National Center of Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities division today.
That’s right. First, find no link between dioxin poisoning Vietnam veterans decades ago; and then, in this century, find no association that thimerosal combined with three types of aluminum salts have created an epidemic of children with tics and far worse putting more than one million on autism spectrum disorders.
In the private sector, Coleen Boyle would have been fired the minute she quit the Agent Orange study.
In Vaccine Whistleblower, Dr. Thompson stated Dr. Boyle would never testify before Congress again, after being pummeled for finding no negative health links in either Agent Orange or Autism. And she is a public servant for good.
The book is highly recommended for people who want to learn about the health crisis of our time and how CDC had quit on protecting American’s and their children from harm long time ago.
James is a father of a 15-year-old autistic son, diagnosed with the regressive form of autism PDD-NOS. He is a freelance investigative journalist writing initially about his son's journey on the spectrum, and then branching out to other government spawned crises, like the 2010 runaway BP Oil Spill. James has published in the Huffington Post, Financial Times Foreign Direct Investment magazine, Epoch Times, and Law.com. among other media outlets. Hot on the trail of the Danish fugitive Poul Thorsen, James will be publishing a book (Skyhorse Publishing) later this year, Master Manipulator: The Scientist Who Seduced the CDC.
