7 Minutes on CDC
By Anne Dachel
When you listen to Robert Kennedy, Jr.’s seven minute talk on practices at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, you quickly realize that our children are being sacrificed on the high altar of corporate greed.
What are Wall Street analysts doing at ACIP meetings? Why are members of this committee allowed to profit from the vaccines that they approve? How can such egregious corruption be allowed to continue?
This is the agency that the media allows to have the last word on vaccine safety. This is the place that produces the studies that supposedly disproved a link between THEIR vaccines and autism. In truth, these are health officials who literally have oversight over themselves.

The CDC is a very troubled agency, and it’s not just me saying that. There have been four separate, intensive federal investigations by the United States Congress—a three year investigation, 2001, 2002, 2003, by the United States Senate, Tom Coburn’s committee, by the Inspector General of HHS in 2008, by the Office Integrity in 2014. All of them have painted the CDC as a cesspool of corruption, of an agency that has become an absolute subsidiary of the pharmaceutical industry, and that has become a sock puppet, a spokesperson, a shill for the industry.
CDC is not an independent agency. It is a vaccine company. CDC owns over twenty vaccine patents. It sells about $4.6 billion of vaccines every year. And its primary metric for success in all the departments in the agency are vaccine sales. The groups, for example the Immunization Safety Office, where the scientists who are supposed to be looking at efficacy and safety in vaccines, they are no longer a public service…agency. They are subsumed in that metric: We have to sell as many of these things as possible. And so they do things to their science to make sure that nothing interferes—no information—interferes with sales.
Now there are two divisions of the vaccine branch where we worry about the corruption. The first one is called the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices. That is the committee that makes the decision about what new vaccines to add to the schedule.
When I was a boy, I got three vaccines. My children got sixty-nine vaccines. It changed in 1989.
Why did it change in 1989?
Because in 1986, Congress, drowning in pharmaceutical industry money—pharma puts more money into lobbying than any other industry— Pharmaceutical companies have more lobbyists on Capitol Hill than there are Congress people.
Do you think oil and gas has big influence in the Capitol? Well, that’s the next biggest. The pharmaceutical industry puts twice into lobbying, double the amount that the oil and gas, and four times what defense and aero space put in. So they control Congress.
In 1986, Congress passed the Vaccine Act, and there were good reasons for them to pass it. …At that time vaccine companies were being sued and were threatening to stop making vaccines. [Congress] said, okay, we’re going to insulate them from lawsuits. They made it illegal to sue a vaccine company in this country, no matter how reckless the behavior, no matter how negligent, no matter how toxic the product, no matter how grievous the injury to the child, you cannot sue.
You know how badly the pharmaceutical industry behaves when they are being sued, when there’s a whole bar of lawyers who spend their whole life looking for ways to sue the pharmaceutical industry and tell these stories to juries, and how many billions every year are won from that industry.
What do you think would happen if all of a sudden, all the lawyers disappeared, all the class action suits, all the multi district litigation, all the depositions, all the document searches, the discovery? Just gone. Nobody can sue. You can make anything you want.
And then they made it so that it was much easier to get a vaccine on the schedule than it was to get a pharmaceutical into the market. There’s no double blind placebo studies. They’re all fast tracked into the market place.
The decision is made by this group, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices. And you’d hope that the people who would serve on that committee would be kind of nerdy scientists who are narrowly focused on public health outcomes, but that’s not who they are. The people who serve on that committee, almost all of them, have strong financial ties to the pharmaceutical industry.
I’ll give you an example of how this committee works. In 1999, Paul Offit sat on that committee. And when you go to this committee, when you go to their meetings, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices is in one room, and then there’s a press deck in the next room. You have a whole bunch of seats there with guys who look like me, in suits. They’re Wall Street analysts, pharmaceutical analysts. They’re waiting to hear the decision. And as soon as they come out and announce which new vaccines they put on the schedule, those guys run out in the hallway and get on their cell phones, and you can watch the stocks spike. So it’s become an economic enterprise.
Paul Offit sat on the committee in 1999 that added the rota virus vaccine to the schedule. He owned a patent to a rota virus vaccine. He was then able to sell his vaccine to Merck for $186 million. He pocketed something around $29 million. He’s never allowed anybody to ask him exactly how much, but according to the formula that they use, he would have gotten at least $29 million.
That caused a little bit of a scandal in Washington, and the Inspector General of HHS was sent to investigate it. They did a complete investigation of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, and what they found, what they concluded was what he did was not illegal under CDC rules. Sixty-four percent of the people who sat on that committee had conflicts that were similar to Paul Offit, and ninety-seven percent might have conflicts because the rest of them never made out their conflict of interest forms. And nobody ever made them to it.
It’s very difficult when those kinds of shenanigans are going on. The American people have faith that all of these new vaccines that were added, beginning in 1989, are put there solely because this committee is concerned with public health.
Anne Dachel is Media Editor for Age of Autism.
Corporate greed? Maybe.
My view: This is the way they are implementing the goal #1: "Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature."  -- You don't need horrific wars and mass slaughter of 6.5 billion people when you can simply disable ability to procreate for large numbers of in new generations of the ordinary people ... then all you need to do is wait long enough ...

You know Trump is good when he appoints RFKjr to go after the CDC and vaccines. Trump wants to be friends with Russia. Trumps wants to defund planned parenthood. Just to name a few good signs from President Trump.

Finally it’s coming to light and the fact is being told: Vaccines given to infants contained inordinate amounts of ethylmercury in the form of Thimerosal; the CDC knew about it and conspired to keep the devastating reality of mercury damage from healthcare consumers and public health agencies. A true crime against humanity and nothing short of federal agency child abuse!

Image: TIME Magazine runs vile hit piece against RFK Jr. for daring to tell the truth about mercury in vaccines
(Natural News) Robert Kennedy, Jr. has been appointed to head a new commission on vaccine safety by President Trump, and The Powers That Be are not happy. Time magazine is bringing out the big guns to try to smear RFK Jr’s reputation in the public’s eye. He hails from a family of political and humanitarian icons of modern history, so it’s no wonder that Time feels the need to destroy him.
Ironically, Mr. Kennedy was previously named one of Time magazine’s “Heroes for the Planet” for his environmental work. But when a high profile truth-teller goes up against the corrupt propaganda machinery that Time represents, that person will be vilified. What makes Time magazine so dangerous is their clout in the marketplace of ideas. Time holds a position of honor in the minds of millions of readers, and it portrays itself as a serious and sober voice of authority. Many topics are covered fairly and accurately, but when a well hidden agenda is afoot, all bets are off. Time magazine’s crafty article “Why Donald Trump’s Choice of RFK Jr. as Vaccine Czar Is a Terrible Idea” is so full of half-truths, misrepresentations, and misdirection, it’s hard to know where to start.
TIME’s sleazy attack on RFK Jr. mirrors the “fake news” tactics of CNN
The article begins:
Now comes the Trump team’s latest planned explosion: the appointment of celebrated anti-vaccine crusader Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. to chair a commission on, yes, vaccine safety and integrity.
The through-the-looking-glass news broke today in the lobby of Trump Tower…
Time‘s condescending tone continues as they refer to President Trump’s position connecting vaccines and autism as “nonsensical non-science.” Natural News has well covered the saga of Andrew Wakefield and the vaccine-autism connection, yet Time calls it “The vaccine-autism fable…” They go on to claim there exists a “tidal wave of studies showing that vaccines are safe and effective…” and that partly to blame for this ‘persistent rumor’ are Hollywood celebrities Jim Carrey, Jenny McCarthy, and Rob Schneider, to whom Time warns menacingly, “we’re looking at you…”
Time falsely claims that with regard to vaccine constituents, “the thimerosal just isn’t there,” when in fact after the ban went into effect, old vaccine stocks containing the mercury preservative were allowed to be sold, and may still be used. To finish, the article says about Kennedy, “the newly chosen vaccine czar does not know what he’s talking about.”
In truth, Time has no clue what it’s reporting. Mercury (Thimerosal) is still used in flu shots routinely given to infants and expectant mothers, subjecting millions of U.S. children to toxic mercury exposure via vaccinations. (RELATED: For the latest honest reporting on vaccines, visit Vaccines.news)
Kennedy has published a manifesto on mercury and vaccines, a very worthy read. It is available at his website RobertFKennedyJr.com. Also, read the powerful excerpts from his Thimerosal science book at this Natural News link. Here is how it begins, and this shows precisely why he is a marked man:
I am pro vaccine. I had all of my six children vaccinated. I believe that vaccines save millions of lives. So let me explain why I edited the book Thimerosal: Let The Science Speak, which exposes the dangerous—and wholly unnecessary—use of the mercury-based preservative thimerosal in vaccines being given to millions of children and pregnant women here and around the world.
Vaccines are big business. Pharma is a trillion-dollar industry with vaccines accounting for $25 billion in annual sales. CDC’s decision to add a vaccine to the schedule can guarantee its manufacturer millions of customers and billions in revenue with minimal [advertising] or marketing costs and complete immunity from lawsuits. High stakes and the seamless marriage between Big Pharma and government agencies have spawned an opaque and crooked regulatory system…
Ultimately, it comes down to a question of human rights – who is in control of your mind and body?
Time‘s vile hit piece on Kennedy is subtitled “Kids will pay the price for anti-vaxxer nonsense.” Those nine words are loaded, and the subtitle in and of itself constitutes mass mind control. First, it is a clear example of fear-mongering. The choice to not vaccinate is valid and does not mean you will bring harm to your children. The truth is that kids are ‘paying the price’ for an intensive vaccination schedule that pumps them full of toxins many times over that of the schedule from a few decades ago.
A reasonable and measured approach is for parents to question the safety, effectiveness, and necessity of each and every of the dozens of vaccine doses that is overloading their children’s immune systems. That is not nonsense, that is wisdom. What is folly is to mindlessly prostrate oneself before the medical/pharmaceutical overlords as if they hold sovereign power over us. Moreover, RFK Jr. is self-professedly pro-vaccine. To use the term ‘anti-vaxxer’ is inappropriate, disingenuous, and perfidious.
Finally, to use the word ‘nonsense’ is dismissive, as if the science is settled, as if no credible voices speak against the vaccine theology, and as if anyone who questions TPTB can be rightfully marginalized.

Vaxxed - A Revolution for Choice
Posted by: ATSC | January 25, 2017 at 05:24 PM
RFK Jr. just wants some simple answers to some simple CDC questions.
Are Autism rates the SAME for vaxxed and unvaxxed children ?
WHY has thimerosal never been tested to modern standards for vaccine use ?
WHY is it banned in other countries but still used here ?
WHY are US Autism rates 100 times higher than other countries?
WHAT vaccine databases has the CDC hidden or destroyed ?
How in the HELL can California mandate vaccines which have no product liability?
The sh t will hit the fan shortly…

Four separate, intensive federal investigations by the US Congress .. and .. ALL of them have painted the CDC as a cesspool of corruption .. yet .. CONGRESS HAS DONE ABSOLUTELY NOTHING OVER 16 YEARS TO END THE CORRUPTION?
I sure wish those "good" Democratic Senators .. Elizabeth Warren and Patty Murray .. who have been grilling HHS nominee Tom Price on his "investment habits, specifically his insider trading on heath stocks" ... had shown similar due diligence and resolve regarding findings of institutional corruption at the CDC that has gone unchallenged by CONGRESS AND THE SENATE?
The World Street Journal has written .. if Tom Price has profited from insider trading as alleged .. he has done a very poor job of it .. as the money he allegedly made was a mere pittance .. especially if compared to the MILLIONS made by Offit when he sat on the powerful Advisory Committee on Immunization Policies .. corruption which continues even today .. absent ANY criticism from either Sen Murray or Sen Warren.
H RAP BVROWN: "The world suffers a lot .. not because of the violence of bad people, but, because of the silence of good people".
AND THE BAND PLAYS ON .. AND .. ON .. AND ......
