CDC Whistleblower & Congressional Oversight Online Survey Results

In mid-November 2015, after finding no evidence that any organization or news outlet had conducted a survey, I launched an online survey in order to inquire whether or not the public desired Congressional Oversight of the CDC Whistleblower allegations. I reached out through Social Media (Facebook and Twitter) and through email. The survey introduction and question is below:

In August 2014 the American public learned from a CDC employee that CDC employees conducting an autism research study in the Atlanta metropolitan area changed the study protocol after finding a statistically significant correlation of increased risk for autism in African American boys who got the MMR vaccines before 36 months.  Americans learned in the fall of 2015 from Congressman Bill Posey that this CDC employee, who now has official Whistleblower status, stated that 4 of the 5 authors came together and intentionally got rid of the information relative to this autism-MMR timing link.
The survey asked one question and then asked for demographic data. The one question is below:

I Request That the House Oversight Committee Subpoena All of the Authors of the MMR-Atlanta Paper to Discuss Under Oath the CDC Whistleblower Allegations of Changing the Protocol and Failing to Disclose Statistically Significant Finding that African American Boys Who Received the MMR Vaccine Before 36 Months were at Increased Risk of Developing Autism.

    Yes. This needs to happen as soon as possible.
    No.  I do not believe this warrants a Congressional hearing.
    Maybe.  I do not know enough about the issue.

At the end of the survey, I provided the following background and disclaimer

Thank you for participating in this brief survey.  Beth Clay is conducting this survey in order to confirm whether or not there is a strong public desire for the US Congress, in particular the House Oversight Committee, Chairman Jason Chaffetz to subpoena all five authors (Dr. Frank DeStefano, Dr. TK Bhasin, Dr. William Thompson, Dr. Marshalyn Yeargin-Allsopp, and Dr. Colleen Boyle) of the 2004 paper, (Pediatrics. 2004 Feb;113(2):259-66.  Age at first measles-mumps-rubella vaccination in children with autism and school-matched control subjects: a population-based study in metropolitan Atlanta. DeStefano F1, Bhasin TK, Thompson WW, Yeargin-Allsopp M, Boyle C.)  to respond under oath regarding the allegations of scientific misconduct, cover up, malicious and callous disregard to public health if the allegations are true regarding the decade  in which no alteration of timing of the MMR in African American boys was implemented.

Laura, this is from the transcripts.
"You see that the strongest association is with those without mental retardation. The non-isolated, the non-mentally retarded, the effect is where you would think that it would happen. It is with the kids without other conditions, without the comorbid conditions. And the, ya know, honestly, I looked at those results, I had not gone through these hard copy papers, I don’t think I have ever gone through them since 2004 and I came across them, and I’m like “Oh my God” and this is 0.97 to 16 and it’s not statistically significant but odds ratio is 8 and if we would have added one more subject it probably would have been significant. I’m just looking that and I’m like. “Oh my God. I cannot believe we did what we did.” But we did. It’s all there. It’s all there. I have handwritten notes."

Laura: Thank you for pointing this out. I remember Dr. Wakefield talking about the findings for isolated autism in an interview, but I don't remember a specific number. This is shocking. By the way, since a hazard ratio of 1.00 is neutral (no effect), a ratio of 3.36 means a 2.36-fold increase in the effect tested for. According to Bradford Hill, a ratio below 2.00 is not strongly definitive. But 2.36 is definitive, and 2.86 among both boys and girls frightening, a cause to appoint a special prosecutor. Let's hope Ben Swann pursues this like a pit bull.

Linda1, I understand your point, but I for one have signed this petition. I think when governments (and I include the UK government in this) have become completely corrupt and broken their own laws Public Opinion is all we have left. We must show by every means possible that they have relinquished their authority.


Do we ask for public opinion before we investigate confessions to other crimes? Public opinion shouldn't have anything to do with this. We are supposed to have laws and people whose job it is to enforce them. The CDC has been accused of no less than treason by their own high level scientist, with evidence in the form of thousands of documents that the CDC tried to destroy, and Congress is complicit in granting the CDC's request to investigate their own crimes.

I understand the good intention here, but somehow I don't think a survey of public opinion is going to do the trick.

To Beth Clay:

Beth, thank you for keeping this online survey going.

I would ask that you include the 2nd category of children that was purposefully omitted and later discarded (into a trash can), a category with even more startling results than those for black boys.

Whereas black boys had a 3.36 fold increased risk of autism relative to the rate of autism at that time if they received the MMR vaccine prior to 36 months of age, the group of children labeled as those with "isolated" autism (i.e. autism with no co-morbidities) had a 3.86 increased risk of autism relative to the rate of autism at that time if they received the MMR vaccine prior to 36 months of age (regardless of the color of their skin, ethnicity, or their gender, if I understand this category correctly).

This is critically-important information that continues to be left out of this CDC Whistleblower story as it shows that ALL children are at increased risk for autism if they receive the MMR vaccine prior to 36 months of age. That is BIG NEWS!

Thanks, Beth, for your continued efforts over the years. Greatly appreciated!

In more ways than one.


Everyone should link this to all vaccine awareness sites because you know the Science Based Medicine trolls are on this site daily so to counter their numerous aliases they use on survey's to mess up results-those who want questions answered must participate in this survey. I remember a couple of years ago reading on SBM's comment boards how Lilady (RIP) laughed about using fake identities to mess with the results of a online health survey for children. Of course Gorski and others applauded her activities and other said they would follow suit. Sabotage is a way of life for the pro-vaxxers and the masters they bow down to.
