Dachel Wake Up: Fox & Friends Fabricates Vaccination Story
Age of Autism Weekly Wrap: Failure to Launch

Andy Wakefield, Vaxxed and The Media

VaxxedBy Anne Dachel

What I find most fascinating about the corruption of the media is their treatment of Andrew Wakefield. If you were to go to Google News and do a search, you'd find his name comes up quite often in stories about the vaccine controversy. You'd see things like:

"Dr. Andrew Wakefield has been involved with spreading the misinformation related to alleged conspiracy and cover-up..."

"... Andrew Wakefield was stripped of his medical license in the U.K. for falsifying the results of his own study..."

"...Andrew Wakefield, the discredited former British gastroenterologist who wrote a highly controversial (and since retracted) ..."

Unquestionably Andy is the fall guy. He's the one they blame for parental resistance to the ever-increasing vaccine schedule (while steadfastly ignoring all the sick kids everywhere). He connected vaccines to the development of autism and parents keep buying into the false claim, according to every major news organization out there.

Incredibly, no one in the media ever wants to talk to Andy about his position. Isn't that a little strange?

IF this doctor is SO WRONG and SO DANGEROUS, you'd think reporters would be questioning him everywhere he goes, setting up debates where members of the medical community could challenge his notoriously false position on vaccines and bring an end to the argument. SO WHY DON'T THEY?

I'm talking about folks like Clyde Haberman at the New York Times. He said Wakefield was "held in disgrace" in a piece entitled, "A Discredited Vaccine Study’s Continuing Impact on Public Health." And while Haberman interviewed Seth Mnookin, author of The Panic Virus, who defended vaccines, Andy was not contacted, although Haberman did cite him as "Dr. Wakefield."

The Times also covered Andy in Melena Ryzik's story, "Pulled From Festival, Anti-Vaccination Film Will Run in Theater," where Ryzik referred to him as "Mr. Wakefield." and said that he is "a prominent figure in the anti-vaccination movement, which has led to an increase in outbreaks of preventable diseases like measles." Ryzik included no response from him in her piece.

 The same thing happened in Stephanie Goodman's story in the Times, "Robert De Niro Pulls Anti-Vaccine Documentary From Tribeca Film Festival." "Mr. Wakefield" was accused of ethics violations that resulted in the revocation of his medical license. While Goodman didn't talk to Andy, she did include Dr. William Schaffner in her attack on "VaxXed," citing him as a professor from Vanderbilt University and omitting anything about his vast web of money ties to just about every drug company out there.

 The New York Times and every other news organization is guilty of journalistic cowardice. They are absolutely afraid to talk to Andrew Wakefield. He is more than willing to be interviewed; they refuse to let him have any public forum. (Back about five years ago, when their was a lot of coverage of Andy and the BMJ, he did get interviewed. Who can forget the disgraceful attack by Anderson Cooper on CNN?  Cooper called his work "a lie" and constantly cut Andy off in midsentence.)

So currently, the media is caught in a real dilemma. They carefully construct what the public is told about Andy: Wakefield produced a phony paper back in 1998 which has had worldwide influence and convinced millions that vaccines can trigger autism leading to more and more kids not being vaccinated. Somehow repeating this charge endlessly hasn't done any good, and the press really has no new arguments.

The debate rages on.

The other side has to fight back. Elected officials, at the behest of the pharmaceutical industry which funds them, are trying their best to shut down the issue by removing a parent's right to choose, like they did in California. On the other hand, the Internet is alive with information and educating the public in ways the mainstream press has never dared. Andy and his team are on the road and they're energizing Americans in city after city with screenings of "VaxXed."

The controversy will only get more heated.

I recently wrote this Wake-Up piece on the new vaccine law as it impacts California schools,  and I discovered that Dr. Wakefield cited the same stories on this video.

Here Andy talks about schools enforcing SB277

Go to 9:00

Andy: "This was entirely predictable. ...The bill, as written, really made no provision for how they were going to police this system other than to make it the responsibility of the school administrators to check on the child's vaccination status and exclude them from public or private school if they'd not been vaccinated. So the schools, as it becomes clear here, became the vaccine police. That's not a role that they're there for, it's not a role that they want, it's a role that many of them are up in arms about, and quite rightly so.

"So not thought through at all in terms of the downstream consequences."

Andy went on to discuss the impact enrollment has on the funds schools receive.

"The income to a school is largely dependent on registration and attendance, so schools stand to lose a great deal of money if parents do not bring their children to school and choose alternatively to homeschool.... [Quoting from a news report] 'Because the legislature didn't want to fund an enforcement mechanism, it simply made vaccinations condition of education and forced administrators to be the gatekeepers.' ...

"I'm sure that vaccine adverse reactions will inevitably follow. Whether they will be appropriately reported or not, we'll wait to see."

Andy then cited a story in the San Francisco Chronicle  where a mother of a vaccine injured child could get a one year medical exemption for that child, but not for her sister. The mother will homeschool.

Andy went on to say that "VaxXed" is available on Amazon and is currently #1 on Movers and Shakers. This DVD contains parts that were omitted from the original film because of time constraints.

Next Andy answered questions submitted to him about "VaxXed" and what he referred to as the reaction of the "medical-industrial complex."

Surprisingly, he received a question about the film "Hear the Silence,"   which stars the famous British actor, Hugh Bonneville (Downton Abbey) as Dr. Wakefield, and that I wrote about in 2013.  This film aired on British TV on 2003 and then disappeared for the next ten years.

 Andy reflected on what he's learned during his U.S. tour of "VaxXed." All the stories told by parents of vaccine injured children are nothing sort of shocking, especially concerning the children who died after being vaccinated, those referred to as SIDS deaths.

Andy: "There is a direct link between vaccines and infant deaths. ...Clearly playing a role in why there is such a high infant mortality rate in this county, compared with other countries."

As he answered additional questions, Andy made it clear that Thompson's false study was used to discredit his [Wakefield's] research and to stop more investigation into the MMR/GI disease/autism link. This is very important because of the soaring rates of bowel problems in children, specifically Crohn's Disease.

So how long will the media continue to lie to us? How long will they assure us that we can endlessly vaccinate every child with no ill effects? The fraud is so massive now. It involves huge numbers of people in the health care community, the government, and the press. They have no choice but to deny everything and keep blaming Andy Wakefield. Meanwhile, "VaxXed" and its supporters are changing the hearts and minds of people across the U.S. and soon in other countries too.




The media. Breitbart is going positively crazy over how biased the media is, this time over Dr. Drew's cancellation over Clinton's health status.

John Stone


Sir John Rawling-Rees died in 1969. Your quote comes from an old website in which even some of the names are spelt wrong: 'Sigmond Freud' for example and 'Rees' spelt 'Reese'. People here are very aware of what they are up against but I don't think the strings are pulled from Swiss Cottage somehow.


I read on this website:

"In 1938, Roosevelt executed a secret agreement with Churchill which in effect ceded U.S. sovereignty to England, because it agreed to let Special Operations Executive control U.S. policies. To implement this agreement, Roosevelt sent General Donovan to London for indoctrination before setting up OSS (now the CIA) under the aegis of SOE-SIS. The entire OSS program, as well as the CIA has always worked on guidelines set up by the Tavistock Institute. "

It should pointed out that Churchill did not become British Prime Minister till May 1940.

John Stone: Everything I am posting about Tavistock is public information, and has been for a very long time. Your handful of personal relationships is not going to change what is already written in stone. Read the books of the Tavistock behavioral engineers themselves - Sir John Rawlings-Reese, William Sargant, Dr. Eric Cunningham-Dax and Dr. Fred E. Emery. Rawlings-Reese wrote that they considered themselves an unseen but very necessary "fifth column" of government.

"Public life, politics and industry should all of them be within our sphere of influence…. If we are to infiltrate the professional and social activities of other people I think we must imitate the Totalitarians and organize some kind of fifth column activity! If better ideas on mental health are to progress and spread we, as the salesmen, must lose our identity… Let us all, therefore, very secretly be ‘fifth columnists.’"
Dr. John Rawlings Rees, co-founder of the World Federation for Mental Health

For example: "Today the Tavistock Institute operates a $6 Billion a year network of Foundations in the U.S., all of it funded by U.S. taxpayers' money. Ten major institutions are under its direct control, with 400 subsidiaries, and 3,000 other study groups and think tanks which originate many types of programs to increase the control of the World Order over the American people. The Stanford Research Institute, adjoining the Hoover Institution, is a $150 million a year operation with 3,300 employees. It carries on program surveillance for Bechtel, Kaiser, and 400 other companies, and extensive intelligence operations for the CIA. It is the largest institution on the West Coast promoting mind control and the behavioral sciences."

PS to add to my previous comment re visitors to US. The obvious question I meant to ask is what about Disneyworld in California now? Where the other measles outbreak occurred. For Heavens Sake there are millions of children from countries around the planet who do not have mandatory vaccinations, what happens to them now? The U.K. Is one of these countries thank God. It becomes more and more surreal this whole mad scheme of enforced vaccination.

Patricia Pratt

Can anyone tell me what happens to the millions of visitors to US with mandatory Vaxxed laws in place? Are they also forcibly vaccinated at point of entry? They too can bring diseases into the country. I ask as a UK citizen with friends in States. It all sounds more and more insane to me.


Uh oh, youtubers are up in arms. Apparently you tube will be striving to achieve safe space status. They are now demonetizing any videos with profanity, political views, or anything triggering. From now on content creators will have to keep it non controversial. Things that make ya go hmmm.
Alternative media beware, advertisers want to keep it clean. Just a matter of time before every other YouTube advertisement is for pharmaceutical products. Leave your balls at the door or turn out your pockets slaves.

It's important to note that Sigmund Freud's most important work "Psychoanalysis" became famous only after it was translated from German to English. The reason why Freud became the father of psychoanalysis was because of the translation. Certain words like the Id are an invention of the translator. Knowing what I know about Freud is knowing about a man who promoted Cocaine to his wife and friends, among them a friend who died after having been turned on to the substance. Much of his early work had to do with self-promotion. (Note: Edward Bernays was Sigmund Freud's nephew who most likely learned from his uncle's success. Bernays' book "Propaganda" was considered one of the 20th century's more important books. Hitler had read it and he made use of it for his nefarious purposes). If it were not for that translation, Freud would never have become famous. He was looked at with skepticism in Germany, and Germans do not go to a psychiatrist like they do here. Of course reading Dan Olmsted's and Mark Blaxill's "Age of Autism," it is more evident how lacking in medical knowledge, and what a fraud he really was.


Amazing. Let's grant this recent comment at RI...

"I do not trust AoA. If they wrote that the sun rises in the east, I'd be outside with all sorts of instruments checking."

...its implied continuation; namely, "in order to demonstrate that the sun rises in the west".

The problem we face could neither be better encapsulated nor inferred than by this particular statement. In short, it's not what is being said, but who said it, that counts, which of course amounts to being the very antithesis of a scientific attitude.

John Stone


Yes, it is very like the Dreyfus affair - the guilty men are protecting themselves - only worse because it relates to the immediate well being of our children and the way they have swayed opinion has been much more complete. If you look back through my AoA column much of it is explained and chronicled.


John Stone


I think you are on the right lines with the intellectual influence of Ed Bernays but perhaps less so with the Tavistock Clinic. I have known a few people who have worked at the Tavistock and they seemed to have a pretty diverse range of views within the psychoanalytic movement. This is not to say that I have a high opinion of psychoanalysis. I think if you were screwed up they could screw you up an awful lot more. Bernays lived an incredibly long time (1891-1995) and was said to have been an influence on a young relative and PR man - who married into the Murdoch family - Matthew Freud. It was Freud's British Press Awards which gave an accolade to Brian Deer in 2011. But I don't know that Bernays was ever a major luminary at the Tavistock in North London, and as we know most of his career took place in the US.

Of course, what you might learn from Siegmund Freud and the psychoanalytic movement is how pseudoscientific ideas can get accepted, and even by the most educated people (in fact one could say the product was originally marketed for educated people who could afford his therapy).


Rebecca Lee writes that this situation reminds her of the Dreyfus Affair. I have long thought this also. The parallels are ominous. If readers are not familiar with it, I suggest they look it up.

In the early 1900s, A jewish officer in the French military was wrongly accused of spying. He was stitched up, convicted and imprisoned. Emile Zola published a famous notice in repudiation beginning with the phrase "J'accuse!" Dreyfus was eventually exonerated, and the repercussions nearly brought down the French government of the day.

Who will be Andrew Wakefield's Zola?

Barbara Nelson

Edward Bernays -- the nephew of Sigmund Freud, Tavistock member, advisor to three White House administrations, and the godfather of public relations/propaganda -- in 1928 wrote in his book "Propaganda":

"The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized. Vast numbers of human beings must cooperate in this manner if they are to live together as a smoothly functioning society.

In almost every act of our lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business, in our social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires that control the public mind, who harness old social forces and contrive new ways to bind and guide the world."

Walter Lippmann, another Tavistock member, wrote the same thing; he also advised at least two White House administrations. We were born into this, people. Let's stop pretending Tavistock and the Bank for International Settlements (our current world government) does not exist. When people wonder why there's so much coordinated media propaganda, this is why. Education education education -- or there will be NO CHANGE.


Yes...Bravo for Doctor Wakefield. Everyone knows about Doctor Wakefield...everyone. In idle moments I sometimes will look up traffic numbers on the internet. How many people are looking on the internet for Congressman Henry Waxman who authored and sponsored the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Act of 1986 that let pharmaceutical companies off the hook in terms of vaccine safety. It was this law that led to the explosion of the vaccine schedule and a few years later the explosion of autism cases. I saw Waxman recently on a video of the Congressional Hearing (old video since Waxman retired last year). He was belittling the speaker who was connecting bowel disease with autism as well as his organization, which he said was associated with Doctor Wakefield. So, I went on line and looked up Henry Waxman and the number at the bottom was 613,000. So roughly that number of people look up his name. He is relatively unknown as the culprit who has caused so much suffering to the families of America. Then I looked up Dr. Wakefield and his number was 15,700,000. A lot of that might be negative, but it's hard to avoid Wakefield without discussing the idea of bowel disease and autism. How many parents have looked up Wakefield and made the connection between their child's autistic symptoms and this biological condition. Just think of the amazing good that Andrew Wakefield has done for the parents of autistic children by promoting the idea that their children have a biological illness, not just a behavioral disorder. He is the man who put the biological connections on the map of autistic spectrum. He is a great force for good; while Henry Waxman has been a force for evil.

The media editor who wrote this article needs to do some SERIOUS research on the Tavistock Institute for Human Relations and the behavioral engineers who have worked there over the last 100 years -- many of whom have written books. Lyndon LaRouche's "Executive Intelligence Review" is credited with having the best information on Tavistock available, so start there. Coordinated media messaging is a necessary component of mass behavioral engineering. The Malthusian population mortality and fertility rate control effort is very real. Vaccines are one small part of this effort. Venetian noble central banking families that have been running the world for the last 700 years have a vested interest in controlling population numbers, since these people own the resources, which are finite. They want the credit-debt slavery system, which they control and depend on for their power, to continue for well into the future, and this is dependent on closely managed resource expenditure. Do the research and connect the dots, please!


I meant we were charged two days when we were barely there 24 hours.


Hate is what I feel.. Our whole medical profession has turned into one big deceitful, big bully, tyrant.

I have spent days writing Saint Joseph Hospital.
I spent five whole months, after the GOD doctor told me we need to get my son an overnight EEG- to get a quote on how much it would be.

Lots of unfulfilled promises of We will make the appointment and in a week they will call you and let you know how much, or they will let you know in a week before the appointment, or we will not know until we look at your insurance and we won't do that until a couple of days before -- I cancelled appointments until I could find out the price. I called - and called too -- I talked to St. Joe in PA, and Dallas Texas.
Finally it was 400 dollars - rounded off. I thought that was reasonable considering 200 for the doctor, 300 for the EEG and video recorder and 400 dollars the room. I was sure they would get it up around a thousand dollars some how.

The bill came in and it was for 10,000 dollars.
My insurance -- I pay Anthem insurance in this house hold for three people around 1000 dollars a month- not disabled enough to draw Social security or get any help - but bad enough that I have to support them.

It took additionally 5 long months to get an itemized bill from Saint Joseph Hospital . I might have made them mad and slow though by calling them often cheats and liars. Yeah, that might have slowed it up a bit.

I was charged not for 24 hours which we barely where there - and hooked up for a lot less - you know how these adults and children get when they want to be let loose.

But my insurance said they negotiated it down, Negotiated down the price of the day we were not even there. LOL!

They charged 3,900 for the EEG Video recorder - which I paid to rent from Kentucky Health - Medical - what ever - place for 300 dollars.

This is hardly our first time that my son has had wires stuck to his head. The old EEGs required tons of paper - as a technician stood there watching and marking down any seizure activity so the doctor would have to go through tons of paper. Now it is all computerized . I can buy it on E Bay for 3,000 dollars or rent it for 300 dollars and it reads itself and does all it needs to do itself except it cannot glue those wires on my son's head. That took about five minutes or less.

The room was 2, 200 dollars - about four hundred dollars more than a FOR PROFIT Hospital in Lexington, Kentucky that my daughter use to work at before she became disabled from vaccines.

This is a none profit hospital. LOL - -as if there was such a thing.

What do we do with all the deceit? It has become more important in this country to obtain money than have a good reputation or have morals. How do you turn this around? You can only have a Democracy , if you have human beings like Dr. Wakefield.

Is there enough morals and good character left in this country to turn it around?


Washington Post had an article this week basically how wonderful vaccines are, how children need vaccines yada yada yada and of course they invoke Dr. Wakefield by not actually posting his name but made reference to the fraudulent study without naming the study (because no one bothers to find out the name). I commented in a clear & concise post the issue, the exonerating of Walker-Smith, the name of the study & even included a copy of the abstract's conclusion. It lasted 5 minutes before it was removed. Also in this article the stenographer went on about the merits of the pertussis & measles vaccine so I posted the information that comes directly from the FDA on Pertussis and Dr. Gregory Poland on measles-yup, lasted 5 minutes.

The only way truthful information will get posted is to just keep posting it. Enough people will read it to begin their own research.

Rebecca Lee

I have really appreciated getting to know Dr. Wakefield through the videos connected with the movie Vaxxed. I find him dignified, restrained and unfailingly polite. Bravo Dr. Wakefield! I have read Dickens, and Wilkie Collins and Trollope and Austen and Thakeray my entire life and you are what the English upper class is supposed to be at its best.

To switch countries, this whole sorry story reminds me of the Dreyfus Affair in France. Wakefield has been tried and convicted by the press and has been symbolically stripped of his rank and had his sword broken. Fortunately he got to go to Texas rather than Devil's Island. When this is all over and he is finally vindicated, perhaps he will wind up with a couple of statues in his honor, strategically placed about London.

When the media get it wrong if you have the dollars you can fight back ..Well done Melania Trump



Angus Files

On speaking to medical friends who work as Dr`s ,microbiologists etc how most sit and nod in agreement mostly,but then that's in private not the day job.

It happens folks the house of cards do tumble and fall, tick, tock, and talk will make it happen.

"So how long will the media continue to lie to us? How long will they assure us that we can endlessly vaccinate every child with no ill effects? The fraud is so massive now. It involves huge numbers of people in the health care community, the government, and the press."

Unlike our main-stream media and their colleagues within the health care community and government ... I hate beating the same drum ... over and over ..but .. UNTIL THEY STOP BEATING DR WAKEFIELD'S REPUTATION TO DEATH .... I WILL CONTINUE REPEATING THE MARCHING ORDERS THEY ARE FOLLOWING .. WHICH ARE ... SOL ALINKSY'S "RULES FOR RADICALS" :

RULE 12: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions. (This is cruel, but very effective. Direct, personalized criticism and ridicule works.)



John Stone

It is the basic media trope: "Nothing to see here folks, Dr Wakefield has been discedited". He is scapegoat of a class. They don't have to answer anything or debate with anyone in relation to vaccines because "Dr Wakefield has been discredited". It is actually on its own a puerile argument, bu if they ever had to research the claims made against Wakefield they would be confronted by grotesque injustice, deceit and criminal fabrication against him. The cleverest ones know this: it was always a pack of lies. They talk about him being "discredited" or "debunked" but these are meaningless terms which don't deal with the corrupt nature of those involved in the "discrediting" and "debunking" of which they continue to be part - a smokescreen.
