While Dr. Coleen Boyle and CDC were looking for a quick exit from the Agent Orange Studies by 1986, US Congress handed the keys to product paradise to the vaccine manufacturers, insulating them from harm and liability for bad, defective, and often ineffective vaccines.

Congress created the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act that year. It was supposed to serve two virtuous goals.[1] The first, fully shield the vaccine makers from liability. That guaranteed the billion dollar multinational corporations could not be sued for any unsafe, harmful or deadly vaccine they brought to the market. The second—and righteous aspect—the Act created a path for injured children to bypass the U.S. court system to plead their case in front of “special masters” in National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP), or “Vaccine Court.”

In the former, the no liability shield gave Big Pharma carte blanche to make vaccines as cheap and easy for rapid distribution, lightly testing their efficacy. It also gave them Wall Street incentive to make dozens of new vaccines for any type of diseases, whether boys had a cervix or not to protect from cancer, and whether the HPV vaccine, contrary to WebMD, works in protecting children from most of the 200 types of human papillomavirus (HPV), when it shields only eight (8%) percent of those strains. In the latter, big government’s good intentions would one day be steamrolled by the reality of hundreds of thousands of the children being injured by vaccines that would bankrupt Vaccine Court before it reached its 20th anniversary.

In 1992, CDC recruited an anthropologist conducting epidemiology studies on children cancer clusters from the well contamination sites in Woburn, Massachusetts, north of Boston. The PhD Diana Schendel moved to Atlanta and worked under Coleen Boyle at CDC for the rest of the decade. Dr. Schendel became an integral part in executing Boyle’s deceptive technique of no association between toxins in vaccines and injured children, hiring rogue scientists in Denmark to prove it.


In 1991, a Swedish scientist sent a brief—Difficult to Substitute Mercury as a Preservative in Bacterial Vaccines—to the Danish health authority, which in turn forward it to the “most successful vaccineologist in history” Dr. Maurice R. Hilleman. His report called out the problems with the mercury-based preservative thimerosal to the director of the National Institute of Health (NIH).[2]

Not wasting time, Denmark banned thimerosal from all of its vaccines in 1992. Did the United States follow suit? No. The “most successful vaccineologist” figured it was best (“cheapest”) to leave it in. Why did he recommend that? Part of it was his clear conflict of interest: Dr. Hilleman was a lead scientist at Merck, a giant vaccine manufacturer. He was the inventor of Measles-Mumps-Rubella (MMR) triple shot vaccine, which launched to widespread use in 1978, with Merck owning the patent.[3] Maurice Hilleman had more than one dog in the fight. . . he had three.

Fast-forward to 2012: The United Nations (UN) proposed a global ban on mercury in all consumer products in a treaty, including thimerosal in vaccines. But the American Association of Pediatrics (AAP) would have none of that. AAP joined the World Health Organization (WHO) to fight the ban. In effect, those health organizations forced the UN to give thimerosal an exemption from that ban, which was carried out in dental fillings and cosmetics. Another opportunity to do the right thing for infants and children slipped away to fast, cheap, and easy.

Dr. Louis Z. Cooper, past president of AAP, stated, “As many as 84 million children globally are dependent on vaccines whose safe distribution requires availability of thimerosal as a preservative.”[4] Yes, Western health organizations experiment on the poor over and again.

Dr. Michael Brady, chair of the AAP Committee on Infectious Diseases, added: “However, the portion of mercury in the environment that is resulting from thimerosal in vaccines is infinitesimally small. And its current use has allowed us to safely provide vaccines to millions of children around the world.”[5]

Yes, “infinitesimally small” for the environment. But what about a tiny fetus? A newborn baby is acres smaller than the much greater environment. By dismissing the world ban on thimerosal in 2013, vaccine makers’ bottom line of fast, cheap, and easy was protected once again well into the future. Were the AAP and WHO nuts? No, they were shielding the golden cash cow of vaccines.

In between 1992 and 2012, many more opportunities were missed to permanently remove thimerosal from vaccines. In the summer of 1999, two manufacturers—Merck and GlaxoSmith-Kline—wrote letters to the CDC stating they could make the switch and still make a ton of money. But the powers at CDC, including Coleen Boyle, had other ideas. With a nudge from the FDA, CDC “recommended” the passive, voluntary removal thimerosal from vaccines instead. That meant mercury would be phased out after nurses and pediatricians used the stockpiles over the next couple of years. The self-policing of thimerosal didn’t last long. After 2003, thimerosal came all the way back injected into the flu vaccine, and again in 2009 in the H1N1 Swine Flu pandemic.[6]

In collusion, Vaccine Court and CDC took advantage of the “removal of thimerosal” from vaccines, giving a short statute of limitations of three years to file a claim, as James Grundvig did with his son in 2005—within the timeline of his autism diagnosis. He was one of the lucky 5,400 children that would one day have their cases heard before the special masters and be compensated for harm.

The true colors of the CDC came out in 2000-2004 when it hired mercenary scientists from Denmark to cook data, after the backtesting of datasets in the Danish Health Registries, when its own peer-reviewed literature failed to produce the desired results. The Dane, a CDC visiting foreign scientist named Dr. Poul Thorsen, was paid to have his “research team” at a Danish university falsify and manipulate the data, omitting entire cohorts and years. In a page from Coleen Boyle, Thorsen’s then girlfriend CDC’s Diana Schendel took the no association playbook to the next level, showing no links between either the MMR vaccine or thimerosal in vaccines and tie it to the skyrocketing rise of autism incidence rates.

By shooting down both the MMR and thimerosal theories, the “Danish Studies,” would be used later in Vaccine Court to expel all 5,400 cases, except one, without any more cases ever being heard in 2011 in what was called the Autism Omnibus Proceedings.

That same April, the U.S. Dept. of Justice (US DOJ) indicted Poul Thorsen on 22 counts of wire fraud and money laundering, which would make the money hoarders and tax avoiders in the “Panama Papers” scandal blush.

But an odd thing happened after the warrant for Poul Thorsen’s arrest was made—the DOJ never submitted the “paperwork” to extradite the Dane, who stole more than $1 million from the CDC in autism research grant money. Why? There was only possible reason. If Thorsen was ever were brought to trial in the U.S., he would point fingers and name names for the corruption he had witnessed and been a part of at CDC. That would include Coleen Boyle and her no link protégé Dr. Diana Schendel, who today works at Thorsen’s old data manipulation lab at Aarhus University in Denmark. And with no extradition of Thorsen, it allowed CDC to continue to cook data and erase any linkages between vaccines and the autism epidemic.[7]

How does thimerosal work turning normal infants, from 18 to 24 months old, into the regressive form of autism? In short, the bioaccumulation of thimerosal in the brain and body breaks down some babies’ ability to “chelate,” filter out the toxic heavy metal. So the “infinitesimally small” environment of an infant’s brain is overwhelmed by mercury exposure and metabolic overload.

Perhaps the coup de gras came in 2002, when the United States was still reeling from the 9/11 terrorist attacks. On the eve of voting on the new Homeland Security Act, U.S. Senator Dick Armey (Rep-Texas) slipped in what was called the “Eli Lilly Rider.” The sole manufacturer and U.S. patent holder of thimerosal, Lilly was given immunity overnight, shielded from any liability or lawsuit for the production of thimerosal, all with the stroke of a pen and a single clause buried in the bill.

Today, thimerosal, “the toxin with nine lives,” is injected into pregnant women, babies, infants, children, adults and senior citizens around the world, despite Eli Lilly’s own Material Safety Data Sheet warning, “severe over-exposure can result in death.” Death is a side effect one should avoid.

CDC claims that thimerosal has been removed from most of the previous thimerosal-containing vaccines (TCV). But that is not true. Reading a label of one of those shots states: “Thimerosal-Depleted.” Depleted is not the same as free, since the vaccine manufacturers still use the mercury ingredient in the manufacturing of their vaccines, but merely “remove” or filter it out at the end of the process. The fact CDC isn’t 100 percent sure on what traces of thimerosal remains in the TCV shots tells one that there is zero quality control in the manufacturing process and, worse, no government oversight, such as FDA inspectors showing up unannounced at a food processing plant to inspect cleanliness and bacteria exposure of the operation.

It’s time for new parents and the public to wake up. They have been lied to about the safety of mercury in vaccines for decades by the CDC, FDA, WHO, and NIH. These gatekeepers of the public healthcare system do not have your best interest at heart. No, they don’t. Instead, they ensure that the cartel of Big Pharma vaccine makers runs without interruption, while receiving blanket cover from mainstream media in exchange for its huge advertising revenue.

2.2         MMR TRIPLE SHOT

In 1998, twenty years after Maurice Hilleman’s MMR triple shot went public, starting the uptick of autism spectrum disorders (ASD) diagnoses, which had remained flat from 1930s to late 1970s at

1 in 10,000 babies born, a British gastroenterologist named Dr. Andrew Wakefield would become a lightning rod in the autism-vaccine controversy. He received several calls from parents about “leaky gut” issues with their children, who were also autistic. Knowing next to nothing about autism at the time, as he stated in his new movie Vaxxed on his two decade struggle to clear his name, Wakefield called for Hilleman’s MMR shot to be delivered both later in an infant’s life, move it from 1 to 3 years, and as separate jabs spaced safely apart.

His study, published in the UK medical journal The Lancet, sent shockwaves through the medical community at the highest government level in the healthcare agencies both in the United Kingdom and the United States. But not for reasons one would expect, if the findings in the study were even remotely true. If the cause of the “leaky gut” issues were some type of product defect, one would want to inform the manufacturer so that it could correct the bad formulation and producer a safer vaccine with less side effects. But instead of conducting more rigorous studies to confirm a possible association between MMR and autism, the UK health agency did the opposite.

In the UK, they used the CDC template to find no association between vaccines and autism, in order to discredit Dr. Wakefield with the long-term objective to redact the study, burn his medical license, take him to court, and discredit him, which all came to an ugly conclusion in 2010.[8]

In the U.S., CDC wasn’t concerned about the health and welfare of newborn babies and children. It was far more concerned about protecting Merck’s MMR monopoly. It moved with other US health agencies to ban single dose measles, giving parents and pediatricians no choice but to administer the triple shot.

And yet, CDC was even more terrified of the financial liability, a tsunami of MMR-autism claims that would inundate Vaccine Court and bankrupt the system. So instead of investigating the potential association between MMR vaccine given to one year olds, as opposed to after three years of age, in 2001 CDC reached out to the Danish mercenary scientist Poul Thorsen, girlfriend Diana Schendel, and paid him millions of dollars to show no association between another set of vaccines—MMR—and autism.[9]

Not merely satisfied with shredding the study, which by the way had neither the word “autism” nor “MMR” in its title,[10] but hatched a plan to character assassinate Dr. Andrew Wakefield, who was the principal investigator, and another doctor, who were part of a team of thirteen scientists. These two men didn’t work alone in a vacuum on Mars.

They also wrote paragraphs like the following, citing previous scientific research that made similar claims on a likely association between the MMR triple shot and the rise of autism rates.

JG 2

Disintegrative psychosis is recognised as a sequel to measles encephalitis, although in most cases no cause is ever identified. Viral encephalitis can give rise to autistic disorders, particularly when it occurs early in life. Rubella virus is associated with autism and the combined measles, mumps, and rubella vaccine (rather than monovalent measles vaccine) has also been implicated.[11]

The first two sentences from that 1998 paragraph were sourced, meaning Wakefield and company didn’t invent the possible association out of thin air. Other scientists had suggested it before. Were their studies redacted? No. Were their characters’ assassinated in that ancient political blood sport found on both sides of the Atlantic? No. Still, they went after Andrew Wakefield and his study with such bitterness, piss and vinegar that one has to wonder about the role of big governments too big to fail in free democratic societies.

In 2008, Columbia University’s professor of epidemiology W. Ian Lipkin got into the act, publishing a study, Lack of Association between Measles Virus Vaccine and Autism with Enteropathy: A Case-Control Study, in PLoS One journal. The study concluded that it “provides strong evidence against association of autism” the measles virus with the “GI” tract and MMR exposure.[12]

After the redaction of the Wakefield study in 2010, all that seemed to remain for CDC was the wildcard Poul Thorsen, who was trying to stay ahead of his financial fraud and crimes by securing new science-based gigs at Drexel University in Philadelphia, PA, and an EU-organization that never got off the ground as a monitoring system of autistic children in Europe. In January 2010, Aarhus University permanently “disowned” Poul Thorsen in a very public way,[13] which was extremely rare occurrence in a conservative and pragmatic Scandinavian country, like Denmark.

One year later, the US DOJ indicted Thorsen on the 22 counts of wire fraud and money laundering. As the ASD community in the US called for action, claiming the famous “Danish Studies” on MMR and thimerosal fraudulent, the damage was already done.

Those Danish Studies, the bedrock of the CDC’s no association argument, were used to dismiss 5,400 cases from Vaccine Court without ever being heard. CDC claimed the “science” was good, only that its sponsored foreign scientist was bad. Truth be told, everything about the Danish Studies reeked and were rotten to the core. And as US DOJ proved, it could extradite the FIFA soccer executives, who took millions in bribes in less than a year from Switzerland, but doesn’t have the appetite to do the same with the fugitive Poul Thorsen.


With the CDC, Dr. Coleen Boyle and Ian Lipkin now believing they were in the clear—exonerating any association between MMR triple shot and thimerosal-containing vaccines and autism spectrum disorders—a strange unexpected turn unfolded in the Vaccine-Autism Divide.

In the summer of 2014, Dr. William Thompson, one of the senior scientists at CDC working in Boyle’s department, had been secretly talking with Dr. Brian Hooker, a professional engineer and father of an autistic son, who had long fought the CDC and Vaccine Court with Freedom of Information Act letters for full disclosure on emails, correspondence, and the raw data from the Danish Studies, among other items. But what Dr. Thompson, the CDC whistleblower, would tell Hooker went beyond data being cooked to deflate associations and flatten correlations to show no rise in the autism epidemic. What he told Hooker next would should have shocked the public with the abuse of power, fraud and criminal intent—had it been any subject other than the Big Pharma Monolith’s golden cash cow of vaccines.

Understanding the importance of the insider information and the vulnerability of a government whistleblower, Brian Hooker teamed with Andrew Wakefield and together they recorded some of the conversations, which would become the foundation to the MMR-autism, anti-corruption film Vaxxed, which had been censored by two film festivals, from Tribeca, New York, to Houston, Texas.

First, CDC scientist and lead PI Frank DeStefano and others destroyed the data that showed a direct association in MMR and African-American children in Atlanta, where the study was conducted. Then Thompson went on to explain to Hooker the other half of the big lie: CDC manipulated the results, by changing the study’s design when it tossed 1,200 of 3,000 African-American children from the data analysis, or a staggering 40% of the cohorts not counted.

CDC accomplished the no association in this study by changing the criteria of how those kids were counted, according to the narrative of Vaxxed.[14]

Jg 2 2

“…After struggling with guilt, CDC scientist Dr. William Thompson came out admitting that one of the 2003 MMR safety studies he co­authored manipulated the data. When the actual numbers were run anew, it showed the CDC had masked the fact that African­American boys were 340 percent more likely to get autism than their peers.”

Dr. William Thompson told Brian Hooker, “The . . . co-authors . . . brought a big garbage can into the meeting room . . . [and put the documents] . . .into a huge garbage can.” One would have expected mainstream media to cover it and demand federal inquiries into what happened. But no much more happened; the press deliberately ignored the damning revelations. Thompson would send copies of more than 100,000 pages of documents to U.C. Congressman William Posey, who quoted Thompson as reporting to him, “[B]ecause I assumed it was illegal and would violate both FOIA [Freedom of Information Act] and DOJ [Department of Justice] requests, I kept hardcopies of all documents in my office, and I retain all associated computer files.”[16]

Now word has come Thompson will conduct a reanalysis of the full cohort to propagate CDC’s lie. It appears CDC bought the conflicted scientist with either a nice bonus, retirement package, or well paying consulting gig for Big Pharma.

Why would CDC go back and redo a corrupt test 15 years later? Oh, that’s right, to show no association between vaccines and autism epidemic.


In the unholy trinity of toxins and dangerous vaccines of MMR, thimerosal, and aluminum, it is the earth metal aluminum that has been vastly ignored by CDC, vaccine makers, and ASD community over the years. Yet, as the graph below shows, created by Dr. David Ayoub, three types of aluminum salts used as adjuvants—the substance that triggers an immune system response—have grown in popularity with the vaccine makers, and are protected by the WHO and CDC at all costs to remain the go to element for adjuvants.

Aluminum-Thimerosal Vaccine Graph, David Ayoub, MD, Prairie Collaborative, Inc.©

The research science of vaccines adjuvants continue to be an “ongoing activity” more than a century later and “has been recognized from the days of the very first testing of nonliving vaccines” needed to enhance a immune response to a particular disease. [17] In other words, after more than 100 years on, with all of the science and technology that has been created since 2000, in bioscience and nano-technology, the industry is either incapable or unwilling (read costs) to come with an effective, safe replacement for aluminum adjuvants.


Like, thimerosal, which CDC could have removed from all vaccines with a “permanent” ban, as opposed to its soft recommendation of voluntary removal, in 1992, 1999, 2000 and any year this century, an army of scientists, doctors, university researchers, and government bureaucrats met as at a secret, offshore May 11-12, 2000, Aluminum in Vaccines Workshop in San Juan, Puerto Rico,

From the Workshop Summary, the three (3) types of aluminum-containing adjuvants are:

  1. Aluminum hydroxide
  2. Aluminum phosphate
  3. Aluminum or potassium aluminum sulfate[18]

The speakers at the workshop, from Robert Chen and Jose Cordero of CDC, to Dr. John Clements, of the World Health Organization, who said in his keynote speech to the packed hotel ballroom: “While it may be desirable to identify new adjuvants, he emphasized that the message from this conference for the global public should stress the safety of both these adjuvants and these vaccines.”[19]

Whether aluminum adjuvants were safe and effective wasn’t the point. The need to preserve the cash flow for Big Pharma, while distributing as many vaccines to as many people around the world appeared to be the only goal that came out of the medical witches coven of the WHO, CDC, NIH and FDA. The safety, health and wellbeing from infants to the elderly were immaterial.

The reality of Dr. Clement’s admission for controlling the “message,” tells a dark story about the burdens that vaccine makers suffer through, the costs and delays in testing new vaccines would have been prohibitive, and that it was more expedient to underscore safety, than prove it, and allow Big Pharma to remake vaccines and break its business model of fast, cheap, and easy.

By 2000, eleven (11) vaccines already contained at least one of the three aluminum salts; and that would balloon to seventeen vaccines a few years later. The wealth transfer of money from parents for unsafe and unnecessary vaccines, of money for treatment to the growing population of vaccine-damaged children, of few families receiving payouts in the bottleneck that has become Vaccine Court was in full, unadulterated The Wolf of Wall Street fashion.

On the final day of the workshop, to underscore that most “desirable” point of preserving capital for the Vaccine Deep State, Dr. Clements brought in heavy hitter Max Lum from the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR), which is a division of the Dept. of Health and Human Services (HHS). During Max Lum’s keynote address to wrap up the two-day secret conference, he “emphasized issues in risk communication, delivered the closing formal presentation of the workshop. Historically, the vaccine ‘establishment’ has done well in communicating the enormous benefits of vaccines, but less well in communicating vaccine risks.”[20]

In October 2009, at the National Vaccine Information Center summit, there were 35 speakers who made presentations. Billed as the “Fourth International Public Conference on Vaccination,” there were concerns about constitutional law on medical privacy issues, as well as, “calls for elimination or severe restrictions of vaccine exemptions by doctors with ties to the vaccine industry and by government health officials seeking a 100 percent vaccination rate with all government recommended and mandated vaccines.”[21]

One of the 35 speakers was Dr. David Ayoub, who gave an 87-slide presentation on aluminum called, Vaccines and Childhood Illnesses: Beyond Thimerosal. By slide No. 11, Dr. Ayoub nailed down what aluminum is: “Third most abundant element; [it’s in] food, water, air, soil, medicine; [it’s] ~8% of earth’s crust; [has] no biological role; [it’s] a poison.”[22]

Other points David Ayoub made were:

  • “All salts of aluminum are poisonous when injected subcutaneously or intravenously,” Dr. Victor Vaughn, Toxicologist, University of Michigan before U.S. Federal Trade Commission hearings on aluminum, 1921.
  • “Statistics show that many thousands of children are too nervous to attend school in America, since aluminum compounds have been so widely consumed… may be the direct cause of extreme nervous condition of our young people,” Dr. Charles T. Betts, Aluminum Poisoning,
  • Cumulative aluminum (mg) by age 18 months: 5,400 mg, more than doubling from 2,500 mg in 1975.
  • FDA aluminum limits not based on safety data.
  • “Nerve cell loss in the progressive encephalopathy induced by aluminum powder,” –Musicco, G.B., et al., Neuropathology Applied Neurobiology, 1985 Jan-Feb;11(1):31-54.

Ayoub asked, “Is aluminum the missing link?” with respect to the autism epidemic. It’s a key factor.

Finally, aluminum is a known toxin to the brain, bone, and liver. It collects as “depot effect” over time. It has no known biological use in humans or mammals.[23]


In March 2009, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., reported that Vaccine Court had in fact awarded $810,000, plus $35,000 a year for autism services. Her name was Bailey Banks, who at the time of the ruling was 10 years old.[24] That was in 2007. Why did it take two years to release the settlement to the public?

Maybe it was to protect Merck’s MMR gravy train. Do it without fanfare, since the compensation by the special masters “ruled that the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine had caused acute brain damage that led to his autism spectrum disorder.”[25] By withholding the announcement for two years, Vaccine Court, or the CDC, or NIH, or HHS knew that mainstream media wouldn’t cover an old story and the news, when released, would get buried in the blizzard of information being uploaded everyday onto the World Wide Web.

In 2013, Vaccine Court awarded millions of dollars in damages to two more children with autism.

“These cases fit the pattern of other petitions, (i.e., Poling and Banks) in which the court ruled (or the government conceded) that vaccines had caused encephalopathy, which in turn produced permanent injury, including symptoms of autism and ultimately an ASD diagnosis,”[26] wrote David Kirby, author, former New York Times contributor, and freelance journalist.

Why the trickle of awards for damages from a court that had fully insulated vaccine manufacturers from liability, while transfer virtually all of the costs of the courts, payouts, lawyers’ fees, and expenses to the U.S. taxpayers? Money. Lots if it, gushing like a fountain of liquid gold.

The same year, under a lawsuit filed by Judicial Watch against HHS into the deaths, injuries, and claims, it demanded to receive “any and all records” pertaining to:

  • Human papillomavirus (HPV)
  • The number of claims file in VICP
  • The compensation paid pursuant to those claims[27]

From that lawsuit, Judicial Watch, Inc., discovered that of the 200 claims filed against Merck’s Gardasil vaccine 49 victims of vaccine injury and death with a fraction of the cases compensated for $6 million. Why the ‘Deep State’ secrecy for a court system that was erected in the late 1980s to be transparent, a vehicle to award people for damages by vaccines, while protect the nation’s vaccine program? Likely, too much negative information would break the fragile trust that parents have today with vaccines safety and efficacy.

In 2010, the Vaccine Court Omnibus Autism Proceedings dismissed the remaining petitions of 5,700 vaccine-injured autistic children without any hearings being conducted by the special masters. Why did it happen that way? The special masters never saw compelling information that was withheld from the claims court, while relying on the corrupted studies sponsored by CDC, including those by the CDC mercenary scientist Dr. Poul Thorsen, the massaging of data by another foreign scientist, and Frank DeStefano’s destruction of data.

Since 2011, Wayne Rohde, author of The Vaccine Court: The Dark Truth of America’s Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, traced the history of the proceedings, claims, dismissals, and compensation awards since the claims court’s inception a quarter of a century ago.

By end of 2015, he estimated that over $3 billion in payments had been made to vaccine-injured people.[28] Had the more than 5,700 autism victims had their day in Vaccine Court, it’s likely they would have received millions more in payouts.

This is a wonderful summary of the whole vaccine debate right now.

A very good summary about mercury and aluminum.

After reading "Vaccine A" book and this article, I have to wonder if ANY ADJUVANT would be safe? It looks like the answer is NO>

Look at the army in their attempt to sidestep contaminated vaccines or vaccines that had live microbes that could actually give the troops the very thing they were vaccinated against. Example; thousands of troops got the flu during WWII after a flu shot.

So, they do a lot of research to build their very own smallest part of a pathogenic microbe and then hook it onto an adjuvant - it is just too vast and complicated, nothing like the adjuvant drawing attention to - some thing like collagen and gelatin, or even some protein that is part of a friendly and much needed niche filling, good gut microbe.

witches' coven meetings -- excellent description - and scary. Makes me understand why the Bible predicted that some day when we have nearly wiped ourselves off the face of the earth - God will have to actually come in and save us from extinction.

"Still the massiveness of the fraud confuses me. Why did Congress bow down to this agency and let them destroy the health of so many children?"

As it has been written .. at the end of the day .. "money is the root of all evil".


I am currently reading Master Manipulator: The Explosive True Story of Fraud, Embezzlement, and Government Betrayal at the CDC. Reading this book plus seeing the documentary VAXXED leaves no doubt in my mind that the CDC can not be trusted. The CDC is a completely fraudulent agency. Beginning with agent orange up through the vaccine studies it has lied non-stop, study after study, apparently to save the government the cost of compensating victims. Yet what will it cost the government to provide for so many autistic people? It appears that the CDC also lied to keep pharmacy profits high. Yet downstream it's hard to imagine that big pharma will be able to salvage its reputation. Who will be willing to submit to mass vaccination for any reason once this story breaks into the mainstream.

Still the massiveness of the fraud confuses me. Why did Congress bow down to this agency and let them destroy the health of so many children. In the book James Grundvig makes the point that 9 11 and the anthrax attacks brought the CDC into the centers of power in a new way. It is now in the front line of the (so called) war on terror. So perhaps no Congressman wants to be responsible for pulling the plug on the entire vaccine superstructure, leaving the country at the mercy of some pathogen perpetuated by our "enemies." Yet what enemy could do more damage than the CDC has done by maiming half our children? Vaccines are like a trojan horse that has been permitted to enter into the gates and in the name of preventing disease has created a generation of sick children who may never be productive economically, or for that matter be able to contribute to our self-defense. We are losing the next generation, what can our future be?

I remember in 1997 Tony Blair had the electioneering phrase "joined up government". It sounded good but what it probably meant was having all the agencies of government working together to screw the public interest. I am sure we had lots of joined up government as we headed for the Iraq war.

James Grundvig

Thanks everyone. But I had lots of help from minds much sharper than mine. I'm just a little more relentless in my approach, which I can blame (or credit, depending on the event) on Leif Ericson and my Norse ancestors.

James Grundvig raises some very troubling questions regarding our US Justice Department .. such as:

1) After issuing a warrant for Poul Thorsen's arrest .. the Department of Justice NEVER submitted the "paperwork" to extradite the Dane, who stole more than $1 MILLION from the CDC in autism research grant money.

a .. why did the DOJ refuse to submit the "extradition paperwork"?

b .. Considering it took less than ONE year for that very same Department of Justice to extradite FIFA soccer executives from Switzerland .. for taking millions in bribes .. WHY HASN'T THORSEN'S EXTRADITION BEEN PURSUED WITH SIMILAR URGENCY?

c .. at the very least .. those responsible for refusing to submit the extradition papers should be investigated for deliberately "obstructing justice" .. after all .. Thorsen's capture may provide eye-witness testimony to the corruption at the highest levels of the CDC .. specifically those indicted "unnamed co-conspirators" .. who continue to remain anonymous and their crimes unpunished.


LMAO, someone named "Rebecca Fisher" at RI thinks we are simple too invested in our viewpoint even though mountains of "scientific evidence" "prove" that vaccines are wonderfully safe.

This report is excellent and goes right down to the heart of the matter. I hope it preaches to more than the choir.

I would like to add one thing: Ely Lilly does not own the Thimerosal patent any longer. The company got rid of the rights to Merthiolate (Thimerosal) after a number of newborn babies died because the solution had been dabbed on their navels as disinfectant. It also has to be noted that Merthiolate can't be found on drugstore shelves any longer. It's a topical solution. But the injected form is "ok?"

James, Thanks for such an extensive review of the criminals (and their agencies) in control of our U.S. health and vaccination system.

I would like to add to your quote about the H1N1 Swine Flu pandemic; here's your quote:

"After 2003, thimerosal came all the way back injected into the flu vaccine, and again in 2009 in the H1N1 Swine Flu pandemic.[6]"

Pandemics such as SARS and Flu (and I venture to say Ebola and Zika) are all (or virtually all) literally FABRICATIONS of the same corrupt medical criminals/agencies you so accurately indict. These criminals fabricate dangers, then poison vast populations with toxic medications and vaccinations based on their own phony fabrications. I include the AIDS panic and the lethal consequences of the extremely toxic anti-Hiv antiretroviral drugs as it has been long shown (for decades) that those who refuse the antiretroviral drugs stay in good health and live normal life expectancies.

Thanks again for your extensive review.


Thank you for this piece. A terrific summary of all the significant facts. Ordering your book today.

Just reading James Gundivig's book .. "Master Manipulator .. the explosive true story of fraud, embezzlement, and governmental betrayal at the CDC" .. and .. couldn't help comparing the same "scientific shenanigans" as John reports on the U.K. "inquiry" .. were successfully employed over decades the CDC spent "investigating" the long-term effects Agent Orange .. an extremely toxic defoliant widely used during the Vietnam War.

James writes .. "after the CDC used 33.2 MILLION dollars for contracts and inter-agency agreements to do the four studies" .. having "produced nothing of significance, the CDC had its template of obfuscation" .. it took another six years for the IOM to produce a 1996 report that finally somewhat linked Agent Orange to the risk of birth defects in Vietnamese veterans and children.

According to James .. the Agent Orange storm of political corruption set the stage for Dr Coleen Boyle and others at the CDC on how to deal with the tsunami of autism cases that would explode across the US by 1993 and continue to rise. Boyle learned how to move a political football around on sensitive public issues, leveraging the news media, steering public perception, working with or dominating other agencies, milking lobbyists, and above all else, stone-walling Congress.

No wonder Poul Thorsen .. fugitive from American Justice system as an indicted felon .. was specifically and carefully "chosen" to be the CDC's "main researcher" .. who .. predictably .. found that "autism in Denmark actually INCREASED after Thimerosal was remove from Denmark's vaccines".

Hi James

And here is a smoking gun from the vaccine omnibus judgment from David Kirby's report in 2009. It was said that the judgment had been finalised weeks before and yet the DOJ rushed in to synchronise it with the new wave of allegations by Brian Deer catching the court on its toes:


Vaccine Court To Weigh In On Thursday

By David Kirby


I have confirmed the following information:

Members of the US Justice Department’s Office of Public Affairs have been caught somewhat off guard with the news that the MMR autism rulings would be released on Thursday.

Yesterday, I sent a letter to the Court of Federal Claims, and to the Justice Department, asking why the decisions had not yet been handed down. I wrote:

“It seems very clear that the Court is aware of the content of these decisions, yet there does not seem to be any rationale for withholding the rulings any longer. As a journalist, I believe the public has an inherent right to know the decisions made by the Special Masters in a timely and responsible manner.”

I did not hear back from the court. But within 45 minutes, I got this reply from DOJ:


We have no information in response to any of those questions. We, too, are awaiting those decisions from the court.

Charles Miller
Office of Public Affairs
U.S. Department of Justice

That was at 2:30PM yesterday. But by 2:30PM today, Public Affairs staff were bracing for a huge workload and a very long day on Thursday, knowing they would be taking press calls from all over the globe. They are grumbling that the Court did not give them more time to prepare.

Interestingly, and in an unusual move, the DOJ staff are also sending around copies of the Sunday Times of London articles by Brian Deer, about Andy Wakefield’s alleged scientific misconduct - in an effort to discredit him and his work prior to the Vaccine Court rulings.

I have no idea what any of this means, but I thought I would report it.




Excellent information.
