It’s Not So Bad
Decorum prevents me from writing what we are all thinking. Until April, then all bets are off. Gloves too.

Autism one in 36 (one in 22 boys) It’s all good
By now anyone who’s interested has seen the latest upswing in the autism rate. As usual, the underlying message is, it’s nothing to worry about.
No one ever talks about more kids actually having autism. That’s long been THE REALLY BIG LIE ABOUT AUTISM, something I’ve expressly written about over the years.
Here once again are references to greater awareness, along with diagnosing delays due to COVID, more girls being detected, more minority children now being diagnosed, and “demographic differences”—although none of this could explain the latest leap from one in 44 to one in 36.
USA Today: quoted Dr. Andy Shih, chief science officer of Autism Speaks, who conveniently took credit for the new numbers.
Shih: ‘This increase is really fueled by us doing a much better job in identifying minority children with autism.’
I will give USA Today’s Karen Weintraub credit for also citing Dr. Walter Zahorodny in her story.
"No one really knows what's driving autism rates higher," said Zahorodny, also director of the New Jersey Autism Study and an associate professor at Rutgers University.
For years, people have pinned rising rates on a variety of causes, including improved awareness, reduced stigma, re-labeling of kids, aging parents, low-birth-weight babies or C-section deliveries. Though they all may contribute, Zahorodny thinks something else from our contemporary environment is driving the rates.
"This is a true increase," he said. "It constitutes a major public health crisis."
Weintraub even quoted Zahorodny in the headline of her story: 'Public health crisis': Autism rates rise again, with 1 in 36 children diagnosed, but in the final analysis, she lets Dr. Shih dismiss it all.
Improved services definitely help drive rates up, Shih said, which is a good thing.
"We're definitely seeing there's a greater capacity among caregivers and families not only to recognize and to understand what autism is but also to navigate the system," he said. "I think that's a huge improvement and progress in our community."
Weintraub, like everyone else in the media, will never ask hard questions:
Questions for Dr. Shih: Will you keep getting better and better at diagnosing until the rate is one in 22 (like the current rate in California)? How long before you finally get it right?
Why can’t you find the same rate of autism among middle aged and elderly Americans?
Questions for Dr. Zahorodny: If this is ‘a true increase,’ what are you doing about it? What in the ‘contemporary environment’ is destroying the developmental health of so many children?
How long are experts going to scratch their collective heads and merely calculate the damage?
Other faithful minions in the media were quick to dismiss any real increase.
UPI: Public health experts noted that the shifts may reflect improved screening, awareness and access to services among historically underserved groups.
AAP: We can’t say for sure, but we suspect this is due to increased awareness leading to more children being identified with autism,” Karen Remley, M.D., M.B.A., M.P.H., FAAP, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC’s) National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities, said in a press conference.
CBS Philadelphia: "A lot of the increase is likely due to changes in practice, improvements in early detection, availability of services," CDC's child development and disability branch chief Matt Maenner said.
CNN: But according to the CDC, this long-term trend has “largely been interpreted as improvements in more equitable identification of (autism spectrum disorder), particularly for children in groups that have less access or face greater barriers in obtaining services.”…
In recent years, good progress had been made in early detection of autism – an earlier CDC report found that children born in 2014 were 50% more likely to receive an autism diagnosis or special education by age 4 than those born in 2010.
NBC News: Experts attributed the change to improved screening and autism services for all kids, and to increased awareness and advocacy for Black and Hispanic families.
This is a story that will quickly die
The news came out on Thursday, March 23rd, and I’m sure it will no longer be mentioned by Monday. The new rate will lost in the gala celebrations coming up with AUTISM ACCEPTION MONTH in April. (Note that it’s no longer “autism awareness” as it’s traditionally been titled.)
Sadly, accepting autism, whatever the rate increase, is the only thing left for us to do.

The book begins with a close look at the actual human reality behind the statistics, and when you see the people who are represented by the dry term Excess Mortality, it’s difficult to accept so many unexpected sudden deaths of young athletes, known to be the healthiest among us. Similarly, when lots of healthy teenagers and young adults die in their sleep without obvious reason, collapse and die on a family outing, or fall down dead while playing sports, that all by itself raises an immediate public health concern. Or at least it used to.
Ask yourself if you recall seeing these kinds of things occurring during your own life—in junior high? In high school? In college? How many times in your life did you hear of a performer dropping dead on stage in mid-performance? Your own life experience and intuition will tell you that what you’re about to see is not normal.
Or at least it wasn’t normal before 2021.
The War on Ivermectin
By Dr. Pierre Kory
Follow Dr. Kory on Twitter here. Support is so important.
Big Pharma and health agencies cry "Don't take ivermectin!" A media storm follows. Why then, does the science say the opposite?
Ivermectin is a dirty word in the media. The drug has been derided and declared useless. Doctors have earnestly recorded pleas asking those afflicted with COVID-19 not to take the drug. But why?
The War on Ivermectin is the personal and professional narrative of Dr. Pierre Kory, the co-founder of an expert group of physicians’, and his plight to alert the world of his group's identification of ivermectin as a highly-effective, life-saving, widely available generic medicine with an obvious ability to end the global pandemic. In this book, Dr. Kory details all the personal attacks, professional setbacks, and concerted, corrupt, and highly effective actions which influenced the world’s major health agencies and medical journals to dismiss and deny it’s efficacy.
@Anonymous Really? It's not their gut lining. That is a ridiculous statement. It's a rope worm. I've seen many. An entity unto itself with it's own intestinal lining. A parasite. Ivermectin is for parasites which is why it's effective for the Covid jab. And by the way, it does a number on cancer cells. The C jab has got parasites in it along with a lot of other nasty stuff. More kids have been helped dramatically and some recovered fully using Chlorine Dioxide. I think you called it MMR. You probably meant MMS.

Greyone I cant see the Covid vaccine bringing the figures down either but then I could be wrong they can make the figures whatever they want.

oh Angus, a 40% increase waiting for assessment, in one year.
where are the "public health" officials, so much pretending.

"Its not so bad" and the figures should be a lot higher..
On Monday 6th February, thanks to NAS campaigners, 29 MPs joined a debate in Westminster Hall on autism and ADHD assessment delays. Our campaigners wrote nearly 3000 emails in just one week, reaching every MP in England. MPs heard how 120,000 people are waiting for an autism assessment, an increase of 40% in just one year.

Just a warning to not let your ASD children take any pharmakeia-created "instant autism cure" drugs/pills nor anything they claim can "instantly cure autism in mice" as ASDs are multi-systemic and profound/pervasive/whole body disorders. MMR/Ivermectin are both extremely toxic as seen with BanMMS and TimTruth's videos. https://odysee.com/@TimTruth:b/ivermectin-genocide:b
The people pushing pharmaceutical/flu drugs as "miracle cures for autism" will violently oppose anyone advocating actual medicines from nature instead of manmade laboratories/sorceror's places. I was accused of being a "Phyzer" agent because I warned people about the dangers of Ivermectin causing blurry vision/sickness in ASD children and MMS tearing away children's gut linings/so called "ropeworms" by evil monster Kerri Rivera.
Resist all "instant/miracle autism cures" just as much as vaccines, pharmakeia and public schools, trust our Creator Yeshua Jesus ALONE and resist all manmade "miracle cures". Please use probiotics/bentonite clay/charcoal as I did without any nasty or deadly side effects.

I believe the actual ASD rate is probably at least 4 in 6/over 85% of all young Americans now. Much more than 54% of all U.S. kids and teens. Not a mere 1%/2%/3% of our nationwide populace, or the "epidemic of need" requiring trillions of dollars in corporate autism therapy clinics (and insane asylums for uncontrollably violent "neurodiversity" victims), wouldn't be so bad or widespread. Militant communist/socialist Neurodiversity proponents (NeuroTribes, many Tumblr users, many Youtubers and more) slam anything bad about autism/ASD symptoms that result in pain and distress as "bad parenting", "lack of therapies" or "exploiting children for views/money" since they don't want anyone to expose violent/distressing ASD meltdowns/SIBs anymore even for public awareness.

Someone who was a kid in the 90's said that the ASD rate - back in the 1990's/90's - was actually 1 in 30. This was on a Bit.chute video I think, about Julia from Sesame Street portraying autism as a good thing. We cannot remain silent any longer, nor allow the Neurodiversity/NeuroTribes death cult to swallow us anymore. We need to get back to exposing the ugly sides of ASDs, "Autism Every Day" movie style/Hikari To Tomoni/Keiko Tobe style, even if it results in ND militants shaming us.

I suppose they’re right (for once) that “autism awareness” is no longer the right title for April, since at this rate it’s safe to assume *everyone* is “aware” of someone with autism. So now it’s “autism acceptance month”, eh?
In situations like these I keep going back to the world of my favorite children’s author Laura Ingalls Wilder in her Litttle House on the Prairie books. How would this have looked to those pioneers back then, over 100 years ago? Mrs. Ingalls (and we) would never have needed to know how to “navigate the system” - a system that didn’t even exist back then - because she had HEALTHY, UNVAXXED KIDS. Gee, how on earth did they ever survive back then without all this modern medicine? Other than safety related accidents, children used to be so weak and sickly and ill they couldn’t even help out their busy parents around the farm or with their numerous siblings or function at all in society, and the parents had to take intensive, extended care of them for life, always needing to live near a doctor … oh wait …

The rise in autism to 1 in 36 and 1 in 22 for boys is not due to better screening diagnosis or more awareness, but to more kids/adults actually having autism. When I was growing up the numbers were 1 in 10,000 and I never even heard of autism because it was so rare and I never knew anyone with the condition. It is impossible to miss the signs of autism in anyone who has it and it didn't exist during my entire childhood and young adult years. I first heard about autism from the movie Rain Man and my son was only two and I never dreamed he would be given this devastating diagnosis by the time he was four years old. We have have been seeing this increase slowly inch up year after year with denials from the CDC, NIH, and other medical people, but their denial does not make the current increases go away. The states around the country can not support the current increase and many services have been cut, lack of staff due to low pay, programs closing, longer wait lists and the families are left to deal with the hardships and heartache associated with this horrible situation. We need more research from independent bio pharmaceutical companies and some are already doing clinical trials on new medications that can correct the core symptoms of autism. We are anxiously waiting for FDA approval of a few of these and it can't come soon enough!

Speaking of bad news, Ed Dowd gives us an insider's look at our failing banking system. He also comments on his book, CAUSE UNKNOWN. Must see video!
'Emergency' Fed rate cut by June, only 6 U.S. banks will be left by 2025 paving way for CBDC - Dowd
We are a government of liars. That's how they have always covered their tracks.
