Religious and parental rights have been under siege in Connecticut since the 2019 legislative session began. Parents, doctors, chiropractors, clergy, independent journalists and other concerned citizens have been attending and testifying at the Capitol since early February to fight pending legislation that seeks to eliminate religious exemptions for unvaccinated or under-vaccinated children from attending public school. According to the progressives in Hartford, the “measles is a deadly outbreak,” and our vaccine-free and symptom-free children are a “public threat.”
Since Representative Josh Elliott (D) was one of several Connecticut legislators pushing bills to mandate vaccinations and remove religious exemptions, LeeAnn Ducat founder of Informed Choice USA, pushed for Elliott to host a public forum to discuss and debate the safety of vaccines. Yale doctors were invited by Elliott, who attempted to stack the deck with those that believed the “science is settled.” Ducat asked Robert F Kennedy, Jr. to participate along with a board-certified nephrologist, a neurologist, a pediatrician, and a research scientist. After weeks of negotiation, Yale only agreed to allow Robert Kennedy, Jr. to join the panel in an attempt to refute his claims, with each panelist promised only 5 minutes. Finally, less than two weeks in advance, The Science of Vaccines Forum was announced for Tuesday, March 19th from 9am-11am with 90 minutes of Q&A from the public. The Yale panelists were Dr. Brett Lindenbach, Dr. Sandra Carbonaro, MD, Dr. Gene Shapiro, Dr. Linda Niccolai.
On Wednesday, March 12, Representative Josh Elliott (D), Representative Liz Linehan (D) and House Majority Leader Matt Ritter (D) held a press conference at the capital to discuss the importance of vaccine mandates and went as far as banning the hundreds of moms and dads from attending and shut the doors on the public. It was a pharma puppet show.
On Friday, March 14, it was announced that after the vaccine forum, Kennedy would hold a bipartisan press conference with Representative Anne Dauphinais (R) and Representative Jack Hennessy(D) about the complex issue of vaccine mandates from 12-2pm.
Despite their 5 to 1 advantage, in the dead of night, Yale Bailed!
An email was sent from Josh Elliott to Kennedy and Ducat at 11:06 pm the night before.
“A number of doctors dropped out an hour ago, and our forum will have to be canceled. I’m very sorry for this and pushed them to reconsider. Wasn’t happening.” -Josh Elliott
On his Facebook news feed, however, he says, “First thing, Yale did not bail. I decided to cancel the forum.” Ducat replied, “Kennedy flew 3,000 miles to get here, Yale doctors couldn’t drive 30 minutes, and Josh Elliott couldn’t even make it down the escalator to shake Kennedy’s hand. How rude.”
The press conference and presentation went along as planned, and Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. educated the public, legislators and the media. He clearly explained (with proof) the regulatory capture of our governmental agencies by the pharmaceutical industry. Kennedy outlined the complete government failure of all the regulatory agencies including the CDC. He told how manipulation, corruption, distortion, and suppression of scientific information had threatened vaccine science for years. He discussed how these corporations influence the use of science in legislative decision making to serve their own trillion dollar interests.
“The last thing standing between a greedy industry and a vulnerable child is the mom.
- Robert F Kennedy, Jr.
Kennedy explained at length the dangerous side effects of vaccines and how truth is covered up by the pharma companies to protect their profits, stating “They all have the same story. They had a perfectly healthy child. They believed strongly in vaccines. They took their child to get vaccinated, and the vaccine injured their child. They know what happened to their children. We need vaccines to go through the same rigorous safety testing as other medication, and we need inert placebo vaccine studies.”
Kennedy also spoke about censorship, calling out Amazon, Pinterest, Facebook, and others. He states that Jack Dorsey, the co-founder of Twitter will not censor and encouraged all to reach out to him to give thanks.
He referenced how the mainstream press has been complicit in massive deceit campaigns dating back to the Vietnam War, and how they protected the Catholic Church during the pedophile scandal. Even after Kennedy’s damning PowerPoint presentation, and calling out the press, it quickly became clear nothing has changed. From the poorly written and slanted bias of articles written by local news outlets, it was apparent that the journalists were not listening to the information, including multiple verified sources cited by Kennedy. Not one article published from the mainstream news platform was objective. It can only come from cognitive dissonance, willful ignorance or they were coached on how to respond. One even went as far as to write about Kennedy’s voice condition to try to paint him as weak and discredit him.
“Democracy does not function if you don’t have free speech and free debate.”
- Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
Connecticut families are very grateful for Robert Kennedy’s appearance in Hartford on Tuesday. In the middle of a daunting legislative season, he was a beacon of hope. Thanks, Bobby!
