Did the CDC Censor Vaxxed? (They Didn't Censor Robert DeNiro)
BEWARE of “Standard of Care”

Huffington Post Deletes Top Blogger's Post Due to Verboten Topic

Banned from huffpoExcerpted from TRUTH BARRIER.com.

Lance Simmens, author, whistleblower, political veteran,  fracking activist,  and more, went to see Vaxxed: From Coverup To Catastrophe at one of the California screenings, and was moved, enraged, awakened. He wrote a column for The Huffington Post about it, and it went up, as per the usual protocol–he has been a contributor for 8 years and written almost 200 articles without incident.

Shortly thereafter, without warning or explanation, the piece was taken down, and his account was blocked.

The Truth Barrier reached out to Simmens via an email interview:

TTB:  Give us if you would, a brief history of your writing for Huff Po. How many years, how many pieces, what topics…

LS: I have been writing on Huffington Post for nearly eight years and during that time they have published something close to 180 articles. I am a political writer and have written articles over the years about events as they unfold, which is the nice feature of blogging. I have a decidedly liberal bent to my politics but have striven to write thoughtful, provocative pieces that try to define a rationale and logic to the policy prescriptions being offered.

TTB:  What happened exactly when you posted your review of VAXXED to HuffPo?

LS:  I saw a premier of VAXXED the other evening and was so moved by the presentation and discussion that followed that I felt compelled to write a piece asking that we at least begin a serious national dialogue on the allegations contained in the documentary. I also drew attention to the spate of events that have unfolded over the past several years, where there has been a massive governmental failure to do its essential job which is to protect the health, safety and welfare of the citizens. I sent it to Huffington Post as I normally do–I have an account there–and they published the article. About a half hour later as I was sending it out to my network I was alerted by some folks that when they went to access it it was not coming up. It turns out that they pulled down the original piece and when I tried to rewrite it I was alerted that permission was denied to my account. I have made at least a half dozen attempts to reach someone at HuffPo to alert them that there was a malfunction and over the course of the last two days have not received one response. I even went so far as to email Arianna herself.

It never crossed my mind that this might be some sort of censorship because it has never happened to me and the article, while provocative, is not beyond any bounds of journalistic or political propriety.

TTB: Does Huffpo have editorial guidelines that writers are clear about? What are they?

LS: Yes, HuffPo outlines editorial guidelines and I follow them. I respect that they can determine whether or not to publish articles but what is so frightening here is that they originally published the article and then evidently pulled it back, unless it truly is a technical issue but I suspect they would have been right on fixing it if it had. This is seriously troubling.

THIS is what the Huffington Post did choose to publish - a slide show titled, "What Autism Means".

The article in question


I take issue with people who continue to frame the vaccine issue as a left/liberal-right/conservative issue. First of all Huffington Post is not a liberal site even though AH began it as such. This was only to suck people into "clicking on" for advertisers and such. When she sold to AOL, she stated specifically that HP was not liberal. AOL has never been liberal-always leaned to the right. The censoring is about content control by the pharmaceutical industry. It doesn't matter what the sites leaning are.

It's time to put away the childish bickering for the sake of the children. Stop framing this as a left-right issue and stop looking for saviors to take up the gauntlet. There are none. People who are confused, concerned or on the fence about the CDC corruption & the vaccine issue are not only reading the articles posted thy are scrutinizing the comment sections to get insights that will lead them to the truth. The minute you start framing comments as "those liberals" or "lefties" and other pejoratives--you may turn people off and they end their search right there. It is a lost opportunity. Our power is in numbers, that is what's turning the tide. When you dilute and distract from the goals of stopping the vaccine madness, exposing the CDC and the pharmaceutical industries for the criminal organizations that they are, holding the government accountable for the damage it has perpetuated upon several generations of children, and digress into finger pointing and such---you diminish the goal and the fight become bogged down in nonsense. If we are to compel people, who are unaware that this holocaust against children has been going on for decades, if we are to saturate the minds of every thinking person in the US with the true intentions of the pharmaceutical industry, profit over life, the goals must be unhindered by stuff.

Th crack in the darkness has been found now it is up to all of us to break it open until it fills up every space in minds and of hearts of every compassionate being to the point they can no longer ignore the cries of all the families who have suffered at the hands of those who have taken oaths to First Do No Harm and protect the health of the American People. When this is done they will act, they will question, they will go see Vaxxed, they will no longer submit their children to the ritual of vaccination, they will contact their legislators (which is where the real change will happen) and they will have our backs and join voices with us and say:

I'm mad as Hell and I'm not going to take this anymore!

Would Age of Autism please publish Lance Simmens' article, which was pulled from Huffington Post?

Thank you!


I just heard part of Thom Hartmann's interview of Del Bigtree (producer of Vaxxed) and as if on cue, two apoplectic, but self-described "progressive" shills called in to comment, primed with repetitive industry talking points. Hartmann was brave to take this on, he'll be attacked like all the others. I am also on a professional Facebook group, and I believe it is loaded with industry spies, because whenever there is a peep about vaccines being anything short of perfection, the attacks are instantaneous and vicious. It's 1984, or North Korea or a cult, we are not allowed to talk about, or think about the forbidden, or we will get shunned!

Thanks you for sharing this link.

Documentaries like Vaxxed and Man Made Epidemic, are just the leading edge of tidal wave that's headed straight for the medical establishment.

In fact, I'd be willing to bet that the next round of documentaries are going to focus on comparing the health outcomes of vaccinated to COMPLETELY un-vaccinated children.

And no amount of censorship is going to be able to stop it.

HuffPo is pure corporate propaganda. It's also very pro-drug. They want to come across as sympathetic to the so-called "mentally ill", but their actual motivation is to help PhRMa sell DRUGS, DRUGS, DRUGS. Make no mistake, HuffPo is fascism.... And, the "pro-vaxxer" camp is even more irrational than those they label as "anti-vaxxers". That's a standard propaganda technique - to stifle debate and dissent by arbitrarily narrowing the scope of the debate. HuffPo narrows the debate by acting as if it's "settled science" that ALL vaccines are "safe & effective". (And notice, HuffPo comments REQUIRE a facebook login. Sadly, facebook, too, is fascist.)

My posts on vaccines were deleted at such a fast rate by moderators at HuffPo I began a writing campaign to expose it. The head moderator finally wrote to me that it wasn't what I was saying that was bothersome. It was that her moderators could tell I was a right-wing bigoted, racist who loved Soros (I had never discussed race or Soros)! Then explained that you become a moderator by flagging a lot of posts (what a grand litmus test for those in the driver's seat). She restored about half of my posts, but moderators immediately remove them or they are moot if the thread is dead. It's a highly censored board with ignorant curmudgeons using their moderating abilities to censor out the truth instead of allowing true debate.
It's the same at liberal-minded medical sites like KevinMD where the best studied MD's On vaccines give up because the most valid posts are censored out while dramatic posts are allowed in an effort to anyone who has studied the vaccines silent and censored. The overly dramatic bring hits to a site which generates ad revenue.

There's nothing "leftist" about the corporate funded "journalism" that exists at places like HuffPo and Daily Kos, which is run by a Dem operative who admits, cheerfully, that he almost joined the CIA at one point. He was gonna join the CIA, and was on the path to doing so, but decided to start a website instead. Sure.

Anyway, left or right, the "approved sources" in the media are approved for a reason. Certainly Lance Simmens was aware of what the fallout would be w HuffPo, so good on him for actually going through with the effort. It's these EFFORTS that add up to something, ALWAYS.

I'm not sure that even the most battle-hardened veterans of AoA and the Great Poisoning movement really understand what we're up against.

Just Google "GAVI and Seth Berkley"; here's one link at the Council of Foreign Relations (CFR) website: http://www.cfr.org/pharmaceuticals-and-vaccines/iavi-gavi-conversation-seth-berkley-future-vaccines-global-health/p25406

All the world's billionaires (especially our favorites, Bill and Melinda) are completely bankrolling the Great Poisoning. Imagine your toughest opponent ever. Now triple it. The prostitutes and presstitutes at at CDC are tiny minions compared to these globe-trotting Satanists.

Dr. Kelly Brogan has a comment at Truth Barrier indicating she had a similar experience.

I used to comment pretty regularly at HuffPost until about the time AOL announced buying it. About a year before that comments questioning vaccine dogma became increasingly likely to not get through the moderators, wasting a lot of time. I noticed one couldn't say much of Monsanto either. I'm pretty sure they had "volunteer" moderators who were there on a mi$$ion. Maybe there were repeated threats of lawsuits over contents of readers' comments, IDK.

Then HuffPost began linking with one of several, I assume now to be, data mining/tracking ventures, and the quality of dialog suffered too. I never felt ideologically comfortable there on many issues, but IMO it was a much better place to engage with than it has become.

Go Trump!

Huffpo is literally is government corruption leftist mouthpiece. Lied and said they'd "grandfather" in commentors. It's 100% propaganda. Can't stand Ariana Puffpiece either.

Michael Crichton on science and consensus:

“I want to pause here and talk about this notion of consensus, and the rise of what has been called consensus science. I regard consensus science as an extremely pernicious development that ought to be stopped cold in its tracks. Historically, the claim of consensus has been the first refuge of scoundrels; it is a way to avoid debate by claiming that the matter is already settled. Whenever you hear the consensus of scientists agrees on something or other, reach for your wallet, because you’re being had.

“Let’s be clear: the work of science has nothing whatever to do with consensus. Consensus is the business of politics. Science, on the contrary, requires only one investigator who happens to be right, which means that he or she has results that are verifiable by reference to the real world. In science consensus is irrelevant. What is relevant is reproducible results. The greatest scientists in history are great precisely because they broke with the consensus.

“There is no such thing as consensus science. If it’s consensus, it isn’t science. If it’s science, it isn’t consensus. Period.”

Maurine Meleck

Perhaps Ariana fell asleep reading her own book. It's like so many of us being blocked from commenting on many mainstream media publications.

Stop Vaccine Injury & Censorship

Therein lies the rub. Until you've witnessed vaccine injury first hand, you question it and those claiming it or have no idea of its existence. Until you've witnessed vaccine debate censorship, you have no idea of its existence.

The CDC Whistleblower story as documented in VAXXED should have blown up when it occurred. It was washed then and now the spin doctors are working overtime to contain, control and erase all mentions of VAXXED as well.

"Dort wo man Bücher verbrennt, verbrennt man auch am Ende Menschen."

"Where they burn books, they will also in the end burn people."

Heinrich Heine 1823

It is, of course, the argument of force because they cannot win the intellectual argument. Their lies must not be challenged: it is their only answer. It is pathetic after the defeat of all the inhumane dogmas of the 20th century we are back here again. The great heresy now is that there is in reality no core scientific principal underpinning vaccination policy. This is the 21st century equivalent of book burning, make no mistake. And it is a new irrationalism.

Bob Moffit

Sorry to read about Simmen's article on Vaxxed being removed from HuffPo .. but .. I am not the least bit surprised.

The VOLUNTARY "censorship" of media sources .. such as .. the HuffPost .. on any article questioning the "safety, necessity or efficiency" of vaccines .. has become standard journalistic operating procedure .. in our new "astro-turfed" world of journalism .. where silencing information is more important than allowing critical information to escape into the world of public opinion.

Who the hell needs a "free press" .. when that "free press" becomes the censors of what information .. we the people .. are privy to?
