Kennedy De Niro Press Conference This Morning

President Trump Asks at Parent Teacher Listening Conference: "Have You Seen An Increase in Children with Autism?"

Parent TEacherBy Kim Stagliano

Yesterday, President Trump held a parent teacher listening conference.   The full transcript is HERE.   What caught our ear was the President's  question to a special education teacher.   Say what you will, President Trump has shown more interest in the reality of the autism epidemic than any President before him.  Is it lip service? Time will tell.  Katie Wright Tweeted earlier that her Mom, Suzanne Wright, tried more than a dozen times to get Michelle Obama, the former first lady, to talk about the autism epidemic, to no avail. 

Katie Tweet FLOTUS

Neurodiversity had a stranglehold on the Obama administration. IACC has been a complete failure. And families are drowning. 

Yesterday, an autism Mom wrote on Facebook that she was leaving her son in a mental health facility because of his raging autism. He could no longer live at home.  She was heart broken. Bereft. THIS is the agony so many of us face. Not whether our kids will work at Apple or Microsoft.

So, have YOU seen an increase in autism?  From the transcript:

  1. BAUMANN: Good morning, I’m Julie. I teach special education at a public school in New Jersey.

THE PRESIDENT:  Very good.  Thank you.

  1. QUENNVILLE: Hi, I’m Jane Quennville, and I’m a principal of a special-ed center in Virginia serving children ages five through twenty-two with autism and physical and medically fragile conditions.

THE PRESIDENT:  How is that going?

  1. QUENNVILLE: Well --

THE PRESIDENT:  Have you seen an increase in the autism with the children?

  1. QUENNVILLE: Yes, yes. In fact, our school has shifted its population -- saw more children with autism, definitely.

THE PRESIDENT:  So what’s going on with autism?  When you look at the tremendous increases, really, it’s such an incredible -- it’s like really a horrible thing to watch, the tremendous amount of increase.  Do you have any idea?  And you’re seeing it in the school?

  1. QUENNVILLE: Yes, I think -- I mean, I think the statistics, I believe, are 1 in 66, 1 in 68 children are diagnosed with autism.

THE PRESIDENT:  And now it’s going to be even lower --

  1. QUENNVILLE: Probably.

I posed your question to Dr. Stephanie Seneff, and below is her answer. Also, she sent me a pdf with her graphs. Feel free to email Kim to ask her to put us in touch if you'd like me to share that pdf with you :) Laura

If my linear extension is correct, it looks to me like about 1 in 12 kids BORN today will end up on the spectrum. The linear extension will eventually taper off over time, as we get closer to 100% of the kids with autism. Obviously, exponential growth can't continue past 100%.

Remember that the numbers being reported by the CDC are for 12-year-olds, so you have to read off the curve at 2029 to get the number for kids being born today.

They managed to get NO GROWTH for the most recent number (which is not on this curve) - a repeat of 1 in 68 that they had seen two years before. If that's legit, it might reflect the reduction in mercury in the vaccines? 12-year-olds in 2017 were born in 2005, which is when the mercury-containing stocks finally pretty much disappeared. Of course now they're giving mercury-containing flu vaccines to pregnant moms and to infants.

But I don't believe the exponential growth would suddenly halt, and I think the California numbers are probably more reliable, which show a steadily increasing slope.

Please feel free to share this with anyone.

Something to tweet out there (for those that use Twitter), perhaps directly to Pres. Trump:


Robert DeNiro-

Thank you for doing the right thing. A rare thing these days. God bless your son.

I wish he would hurry up and send the pharma walls falling to dust a controlled demolition just like 9-11.Plenty waiting for him to turn up Trumps.I suppose he has to wait until he gets all his guys in the places of power that matter.I believe that the old regime are doing everything they can to stop this. They know their time is up - prison awaits.



People who speak out are bound to occasionally use a wrong word. We all know what he meant and are grateful for his making the point and tackling an issue that other presidents have ignored or done damage to by their ineptitude or catering to industry. Pettiness on our part will not help the situation.

I am concerned about Betsy DeVos.

From her confirmation hearing, I don't think she understands anything about the IDEA (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act). Her commitment to charters and vouchers leaves out students wit disabilities (many private schools and charter schools don't accept children with disabilities). The vaccine issue matters enormously - but so does education for those students who are already damaged from vaccines.

President Trump may be concerned about vaccines, but I would like to hear from him an equal commitment to cure for vaccine damage such as autism, and a commitment to supports and services for those for whom cure/recovery is not yet possible.


And I'm sure that everyone has seen how OFFENDED others were by the suggestion that rates are rising and it's not all due to better diagnosis. Moreover, it was 'demeaning' for him to say that 'it's a horrible thing to watch.' We need to stop with the ND political correctness and call a spade a spade!

The tri-letter alphabet soup seems to be all crickets so far, but there's some coverage of Trump's "dangerous" statement:


"And now it's going to be even lower--" ?

KFC must be putting extra Propecia in his take-out.


Give Trump a little time, people. I believe he will help us. Oh and the media, heh, Bob M, your shrewd observation is exactly why most don't trust the media.

Update on my earlier comment regarding the likelihood that Trump's QUESTION to regarding the increase in autism .. and .. just as important .. the ANSWER given by the principal of a special-ed center in Virginia ...

Watched ABC news in NY at 6:00 today .. they showed actual film footage of Donald Trump .. sitting alongside Education Sec Betsy Devos .. though .. predictably ... ABC did not even attempt to explain the film showing was of President Trump attending his .. "Parent Teacher Listening Conference".

Instead .. the voice over was all about the resignation of Flynn as National Security Advisor.

Indeed .. if I didn't know better .. I would have assumed that Flynn's resignation was the SUBJECT under heavy discussion during Trump's "Parent Teacher Listening Conference".


Where do I go to collect my bet on "fake news" media coverage of the conference??????

Aimee Doyle

President Trump does appear to be more concerned about autism than any previous president.

However, I'm wondering whether he will be able to stand up to the pharmaceutical industry. He met with members of the industry recently to discuss negotiating drug prices. Apparently he didn't succeed in that attempt.

I also wonder why he didn't bring up the vaccine issue? Seems like a good time to do it, when representatives of the industry are present.


Well at least there is lip service; which is more than I cold say for all the past presidents.
I agree with George stevens statement.

And I am with Bob Moffit on there will be no media coverage, and Trump raising the question, and certainly not the answer from the teacher. But darn; the special ed teacher, she is just a special ed teacher, and not some big shooooot psych, writing the DSM book. Damn - sh**ty Manuel. It is not exactly fax news though is it? It is important news stories not covered, and when they are covered, they are slanted. What do you call that? There is bound to be a better word?


He's not a typical politician who has to repay pharma and others for campaign donations. We all know he funded most of his campaign and he isn't beholden to those special interests. This is very encouraging to me. He seems to be genuine in his concern for this epidemic even given all that is on his plate. I feel like autism, our kids, our families are swept up under the rug, forgotten and like others have said about previous administrations just ignored with the attitude of "just accept it".
I do not think its lip service as he is concerned, and has even had autism fundraisers on his own before even thinking of running for office. The media will turn it all around though and demonize his concern into something else! This is very frustrating for families as we are a forgotten group that is not represented as we are not important for votes evidently!

More recently a private medical consultant, Barry Rumack, M.D., was hired by the FDA to review that status of mercury levels in children with an emphasis on childhood vaccines. According to his findings,
“at no point from birth to 16-18 months of age that infants were mercury levels below the EPA guidelines for allowable mercury exposure…. In fact, according to the models, blood and body burden levels of mercury peaked at six months of age at a shocking high level of 120 ng/L. To put this in perspective, the CDC classifies mercury poisoning as blood levels of mercury greater than 10 ng/L.”
Dr. Rumack notes that the FDA chose to hide this finding from the public and higher health officials. [1]

During Second World War Vaccines with Thimerosal Required to be Labeled “Poison”

Thimerosal, the ethylmercury preservative commonly found in vaccines, is perhaps the ingredient with the longest history of controversy. The pharmaceutical company Eli Lily tested thimerosal back in 1930, giving it a clean record of safety even though its own trials had shown it caused serious neurological damage and even death in both animals and humans. During that decade, a competitor vaccine maker, Pittman-Moore, had also conducted toxicological studies with dogs and concluded the preservative was “unsatisfactory as a serum intended for use on dogs.”

During the Second World War, vaccines with thimerosal were required to be labeled as “poison,” and later in 1972, Eli Lily itself discovered that thimerosal in doses a hundred times weaker than in a typical vaccine at that time, was “toxic to tissue cells.” Nevertheless, the drug maker continued to promote the illusion that thimerosal was safe and highly suitable as a vaccine preservative.

Government health officials and vaccine manufacturers to this day have known of the long history of research confirming thimerosal as a toxic poison unsuitable for human delivery. A former leading vaccine developer for Merck had once warned his firm of the dangers of administering mercury-laced vaccines to newborns and infants and declared that the industry knows very well there are “nontoxic alternatives” that were equally effective and could be used to replace thimerosal.


Say what you will, President Trump has shown more interest in the reality of the autism epidemic than any President before him. Is it lip service?


Do you think it's lip service?

If so, why do you feel that way?

On we must all use the Contact the White House link to ask for attention to the autism epidemic.

How many times did I try to contact Obama and my senators and reps? The repeated response was "We are working to level the playing field for all people with disabilities." In other words just accept your disability.

No! All causes of autism must be identified. How the brain is affected is most important.

The Korean figure is valueless - more than three quarters of the families had withdrawn their children fron the Autism Speaks screening project before it was complete, and at the time AS was trying to line up children for potential pharmaceutical intervention. In the UK the rate rises year on year. From published education statistics in January 2016 it was 1 in 71 in the English schools and 1 in 51 in Scottish schools in September 2016 but it is going to be much higher in younger children (because this is a 15 year cohort). Moreover, many younger children will not be diagnosed yet so the real rate is even higher. In Scotland the rate was probably around 1 in 71 in the spring of 2013 so England is less than three years behind. However, children who have received the JCVI's further expanded schedule have not yet entered the system so the position is bound to be even more frightening in three years time. If the rate goes no higher among younger childen (and it is perhaps reaching between 1 in 20 and 1 in 10 in for boys in Scotand) the overal rate will still go up dramatically. I imagine the position will be even worse in the US where they get Hep B and chicken pox vaccine, although uptake rates are likely similar.

I think Trump faces an even bigger problem if he does not act. Before the end of his first term everything will look dramatically worse.

George stevens

In the first 3 to 4 weeks of trumps presidency one thing I haven't seen a sign of lip service yet. He says what he's gonna do and does it even if it passes off the media or anyone else. This is big you can see he is highly educated on the subject and is almost coaching that teacher. I'd they don't find a way to impeach him he's going to blow up their house of cards.

Hans Litten

Small point , slightly off subject :
The true statistics today are likely to be closer to the 2011 year old South Korean study which said autism was running at a rate of 1 in 38.

In fact I think if we want to know the true rate of autism today we should use the predictive work of Stephanie Seneff . She has created the exponential graph that plots out the future autism rates .
So what does that graph say the rate of autism is today ?
Because in my opinion none of the government bodies can be trusted in any capacity whatsoever .
The UK for instance just doesn't publish any figures at all anymore (total UK scoundrels).

Does anyone have a link to Seneffs graphical work ? So I can tell you the correct Autism rate TODAY.

Bob Moffit

I'll be curious to see if the President's QUESTION regarding autism .. and .. just as important .. the ANSWER given by the principal of a special-ed center in Virginia serving children ages five through twenty-two with autism and physical and medically fragile conditions .. including her quote that .. "1 in 66, 1 in 68 children are diagnosed with autism" .. will receive ANY main-stream media coverage?

Even though I believe such surprise coverage .. this late in the media's decades long "fake news" coverage of autism .. is NOT BLOODY LIKELY ... maybe the media swamp will surprise me?

if I were a gambling man .. I would bet NO .. on the question of media coverage.
