The Headlines Write Themselves

1C2BEBE6-F7F4-43DD-8767-054E6AA9F865Is any progress educating fellow families realistic when critical thinking skills are so low? Of course, consumers can sue Duncan Hines and Betty Crocker if they eat PEANUT BUTTER cookies. That's why the labeling is so basic. Meanwhile, when we said,"Hey, about that bolus dose of mercury in my newborn's Hep B vaccine, you think that could be a problem," we were kicked to the curb.

Another packaging change I noticed recently, was cooking instructions. I offered to bring my my daughters' day program staff breakfast for Day Service Provider appreciation day. I baked homemade muffins. And I bought 48 Jimmy Dean frozen sausage egg and cheese croissant sandwiches. When I went to bake them, the instructions said that I had to go the Jimmy Dean WEBSITE for oven directions, They only had MICROWAVE directions on the box. I couldn't believe it.

And yet, I can.

Beetlejuice is Funny. Beetleburgers are Not. Watch CHD TV Now.

Mary and Polly CHD TVWe’ll see you Sunday, with Cathy Jameson’s post.

This week, Mary Holland, Children’s Health Defense (CHD) president, and Polly Tommey, CHD.TV programming manager, covered the latest headlines on COVID-19, Big Pharma and other issues, including news that as the World Economic Forum wrapped up its weeklong annual meeting of nearly 3,000 political, business, media and academic elites, The Defender identified eight key takeaways based on news reports and comments by participants and attendees.

WATCH HERE

Polly and Mary also discussed that at the meeting, former prime minister Tony Blair has called for digital libraries that can record the vaccination status of people around the world in future pandemics.

Plus, The Wall Street Journal Sunday took vaccine makers and federal agencies to task for pushing the bivalent COVID-19 boosters without having any data to demonstrate that they are either safe or effective. On Monday, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said it is eyeing changes to the booster program.

Also on tap this week: Moderna and BioNTech acknowledged early on that their COVID-19 shots were gene therapy, but now, with help from media giants like The Associated Press, they’re going to great lengths to get you to believe otherwise.   Click here to read more and watch.

SPELLERS has documented a miracle

Spellers The MovieWe're pleased to share this emotional review of Spellers, The Movie, by Levi Quackenboss. Subscribe to the Substack here.

SPELLERS has documented a miracle

For my friend, JB Handley, and his champion speller, Jamie.

I know you all will ask when and where you can see this life-changing film. I’ve heard rumors that it’s launching April 2nd, on World Autism Day. Stay tuned, I’ll let you know how see it. In the meantime, follow the SPELLERS Instagram and sign up for the SPELLERS mailing list for news.

When the opening scenes of SPELLERS began, for a moment I doubted that I would make it through the film that day. JB Handley has been many things to me in our seven-year friendship. A force. A shield. A contributor, a voice, a friend. A big, strong, soft-hearted human in need. A ray of hope who needs an occasional spiritual pep talk to make it through a dark day. I haven't met JB's son, Jamie, but I've said a few words to him when JB puts our calls on speaker. JB tells me about Jamie's big smile as he listens. Jamie is autistic and doesn't talk, and he's been that way since he was a toddler.

The film opens with another young man, Cade Larson, filled with joy, cruising past the camera on a surfboard.

I've had the pleasure of spending several days with Cade, over a couple of trips. My children have sat with him at the dinner table, munching on tater tots at the country club near his Minnesota home. Cade is also autistic and has echolalia but otherwise doesn't speak. While he helplessly repeats everything said to him, you know he means "yes" with the enthusiasm he infuses into his echos. Yes, he wants all of us to go on the boat. Yes, he wants two orders of tater tots for dinner tonight. No, he doesn't want the dogs around.

CDC Wants To Continue Federal Travel Mask Mandate

Elmo maskNote: Mask mandates were discriminatory toward people with autism. Travel mask mandates for healthy people surely meant many autism families were grounded. And in today's pugilistic environment of hotheads and the entitled, air travel could be dangerous for anyone who does not wear a mask, even if the reason is for a disability.  If you are sick, and want to don a mask as a courtesy, few could argue with that. If you feel safer wearing a mask around others, no matter their health status, you should have that choice. Ah, there's that word.....

From Leslie Manookian's Health Freedom Defense Fund:

###

Tuesday, January 17, 2023, the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals heard oral argument in CDC’s appeal of a district court’s ruling vacating the federal travel mask mandate.

Health Freedom Defense Fund (HFDF) challenged CDC’s sweeping mask rule on the basis that CDC violated the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) by failing to notice the public, take public comment, properly articulate and justify the rule, and lacked statutory authority for issuing such a far-reaching rule affecting millions of healthy people.

Noting that CDC did not immediately appeal the district court’s decision, HFDF attorney Brant Hadaway argued, "This is not about an urgent matter of public health." He continued, had CDC believed the issue was a "matter of life and death" the agency would have sought to expedite the legal process.

Sticks and Stones

Dead rose
By any other name...

See you Sunday with Cathy Jameson. We publish Sunday - Thursday.

We live in a world where sticks stones might break bones but names - words - heck they'll destroy your life and send you straight to  bed with depression.  Can you imagine spending a DIME to study the terminology of autism? Thank you, NEURODIVERSITY for more fluff while families are staggering to complete collapse no matter WHERE their children fall on the SPECTRUM. Can you believe we're arguing over WORDS rather than the lack of services and supports?

Sometimes Certain Terms Are Accurate Clinical Descriptors

A commentary titled “A full semantic toolbox is essential for autism research and practice to thrive” was recently published in Autism Research. Written by four mothers of individuals on the spectrum, the commentary takes on the controversial topic of “neutral” autism terminology that many in the neurodiversity movement favor. Recent articles written from the neurodiverse perspective suggest avoiding or replacing terms such as “disorder,” “deficit,” “risk,” “symptoms,” “challenging/problem behavior,” “comorbid,” and “prevention” when writing about autism. The neurodiverse community considers these terms “ableist,” even though the context in which those terms are used is not always considered. The commentary’s authors acknowledge that some scientific words may provoke feelings of social stigmatization for individuals in the neurodiversity movement. However, they believe those concerned should counter and address that stigma but should not eliminate scientifically accurate terminology while doing so. The authors also point out that the words targeted for elimination most often apply to individuals severely impacted by autism who are traditionally the most underserved despite having the most needs. Additionally, the authors state that censorship of certain terms exerts a chilling effect on research and clinical practice. They fear this chilling effect will again impact individuals and families that experience autism as a life-limiting condition versus a divergence or identity. The authors sum up the controversy by stating, “There does not need to be a battle between the two viewpoints around autism vocabulary; there is room across the spectrum to acknowledge that autism can be a state of being for some, an impairing condition for others and somewhere in between for many. Restricting terms used to describe autism will not change the nature of a person’s autism nor will it eliminate the impairments and symptoms experienced because of an autism diagnosis. It will not result in clinical benefit for some while reducing any services for anyone else.” They conclude by urging the autism community to ask families and individuals which terms they prefer to describe themselves and to accept the broad use of scientific terms in scientific research and studies. Ultimately, the authors believe that the push for neutral language is problematic since it robs the scientific community’s ability to describe the harsh realities people with autism face daily, particularly those with profound autism. In the end, they do not believe that anyone or any group should have the power to limit language that excludes the “observable realities of autism.”

Serenity Now or Never

7DCDC222-9F2A-4C5E-88F9-A3458A6AD4F0

I saw this Tweet from Dr. Peter McCullough yesterday. "Young people should have thought through genetic shots...."  I wrote two Tweet responses to voice my frustration.

EEFF3795-1E33-4755-8FE6-AC35FB81C158

Think about it. An MD asking the young adults who were raised on the birthing person's milk of pharma trust to suddenly have the capability, let alone the nerve, to question a new vaccine out of the blue. Young adults who watched Elmo tell them to get their vaccines. Young adults who never had a moment to themselves to think, process, problem solve. Kids whose critical thinking skills were not installed because Mom and Dad wanted to make sure they never felt discomfort, pain, failure, loss. Kids who never saw a D on a report card because all kids needed to feel safe. And now we're going to tell them their troubles are their own fault? How about the decades of data, science and heartache doled out daily by the autism vaccine injury community. We have a lot of work ahead of us to help people process the damage here, and coming.

Remember the Scorpion and the Frog

Scorpion and frog 2Dr. Paul Offit has been the Godfather of the pediatric vaccine schedule for decades. He has been our Moriarty. I once called him The Pope of the Church of the Immaculate Vaccination on Huffington Post. And yet, in NEJM (below) he is a voice of caution regarding the Covid booster. And caution is the operative word. Remember the tale of the scorpion and the frog. Remember one's nature. Mark Blaxill has written extensively on Dr. Offit's career. Here are a few links.

Bivalent Covid-19 Vaccines — A Cautionary Tale Publication: The New England Journal of Medicine Publisher: Massachusetts Medical Society Date: Jan 11, 2023 Copyright © 2023, Massachusetts Medical Society

"...Although boosting with a bivalent vaccine is likely to have a similar effect as boosting with a monovalent vaccine, booster dosing is probably best reserved for the people most likely to need protection against severe disease — specifically, older adults, people with multiple coexisting conditions that put them at high risk for serious illness, and those who are immunocompromised. In the meantime, I believe we should stop trying to prevent all symptomatic infections in healthy, young people by boosting them with vaccines containing mRNA from strains that might disappear a few months later."

Robert F. Kennedy Announces COVID Censorship Lawsuit

Tv censorshipFrom Tucker Carlson Tonight:  Robert F. Kennedy tells Tucker about an 'active conspiracy to censor COVID information' on 'Tucker Carlson Tonight.'  (The video should appear below this article.)

We are no strangers to censorship. The autism/vaccine injury (which I have nicknamed 'vinjury') community has been gaslit and shadow banned for years. Case in point: Age of Autism was Google News indexed for many years. One day, it just stopped. Thank you to Robert Kennedy Jr for his swift action to defeat the juggernaut of suppression that hides behind the facade of public health. Only war used to receive this kid glove treatment. Today, war is waged not by The Pentagon, but by CDC. But against whom? From The Defender:

Breaking: Landmark Lawsuit Slaps Legacy Media With Antitrust, First Amendment Claims for Censoring COVID-Related Content 

In a live interview this evening on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., chairman and chief litigation counsel for Children’s Health Defense (CHD), announced that he and several other plaintiffs filed a groundbreaking novel lawsuit making antitrust and constitutional claims against legacy media outlets.

The lawsuit targets the Trusted News Initiative (TNI), a self-described “industry partnership” launched in March 2020 by several of the world’s largest news organizations, including the BBC, The Associated Press (AP), Reuters and The Washington Post — all of which are named as defendants in the lawsuit.  Read the full story at THE DEFENDER.

White House Black Sharpie

Rfk tweetsFrom The Defender. Follow Robert Kennedy, Jr. at Twitter Here.

A series of Jan. 6 tweets by newly sworn-in Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey detailed how Biden officials sought to censor tweets by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., chairman and chief litigation counsel of Children’s Health Defense (CHD), conservative commentator Tucker Carlson and others.

Citing documents and emails between social media employees and White House officials, Bailey exposed how the White House sought to censor Kennedy for a tweet questioning “suspicious” deaths of elderly individuals after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine and seeking a good faith investigation into the true causes of the deaths.

The White House specifically targeted Kennedy’s Jan. 22, 2021, tweet about the then-recent death of baseball Hall of Famer Hank Aaron, 18 days after he publicly received the Moderna vaccine...

Our Big FAT Pediatric Failure

American fat kidNew guidance: Use drugs, surgery early for obesity in kids

By Kim Rossi Your pediatrician is being told by her union (the AAP) that she should put your  overweight 12 year old on weight loss drugs, and schedule bariatric surgery for your obese teenager. This is the same AAP that gets its funding from Coca Cola. The same AAP that has presided over the sickest generation in history. The same AAP that injected hundreds of micrograms of mercury into infants and toddlers without a second thought, hell, without a FIRST thought. The same AAP that watched autism soar from 1 in 10,000 to can't swing a dead cat. They will drug and cut your child rather demand the changes needed for real health.  This is an insanity even the most pharma obedient American should view with shock and horror.  It's a complete dereliction of duty by the physicians and frankly, by parents as well. Obesity doesn't happen overnight. It happens with the first Gatorade at age 2 because the color is fun and she just wants a sip. It happens with a McHappy Meal loaded with sugar. It happens because we LET it happen.  Worse?  Almost three quarters of pediatricians are WOMEN - white women responsible for children's health. In a medical field that had once been overwhelmingly dominated by men, pediatrics is fast developing into what will be a female dominated medical practice. (Source, Career Trend)  Have they no shame? Or are they just the laziest sons of bitches to ever malpractice? Is Pediatrics the med school version of "rocks for jocks" - what we used to call geology class as the science requirement in liberal arts programs.  the kids suffering the highest obesity rates are Black and Hispanic. So what's really going on looks dangerously racist, putting ChOC on weight loss drugs and operating on them. Then expecting their FAMILIES, under whose care they became obese, to then adhere to the rigorous post bariatric eating habits needed to succeed. On what planet is anything of this realistic? 

We'd laugh out loud if this weren't so predictable and absurd.  Not to mention dangerous. Take a peek at Mayo Clinic's primer on weight loss drugs. Frightening side effects. But danger seems to be the AAP's stock in trade. While their patients suffer from failure to thrive, they themselves bloom on fear, dismissal, disregard. They pledge a blind allegiance and alliance to the pharmaceutical industry.  And now, they are funneling kids to surgeons. Trans surgery has whet the appetite for a new market - fat kids. Scalpels raised with surgical group profits. What positive attribute can you possibly assign to a medical specialty that has all but destroyed their patients' lives?  In 2008, Mark Blaxill wrote an article, Support Your Pediatrician, Condemn their Union. They have not earned our respect or support. They have sold children so far down the river, they'll drown in the ocean of pharma.

Many AofAers know first hand how little pediatricians do to promote health. We learned the hard way. But this latest announcement should open the eyes of every parent or expectant parent. Should. But will it? Fat chance.

New guidance: Use drugs, surgery early for obesity in kids

Children struggling with obesity should be evaluated and treated early and aggressively, including with medications for kids as young as 12 and surgery for those as young as 13, according to new guidelines released Monday.

The longstanding practice of “watchful waiting,” or delaying treatment to see whether children and teens outgrow or overcome obesity on their own only worsens the problem that affects more than 14.4 million young people in the U.S. Left untreated, obesity can lead to lifelong health problems, including high blood pressure, diabetes and depression.

“Waiting doesn’t work,” said Dr. Ihuoma Eneli, co-author of the first guidance on childhood obesity in 15 years from the American Academy of Pediatrics. “What we see is a continuation of weight gain and the likelihood that they’ll have (obesity) in adulthood.”

For the first time, the group’s guidance sets ages at which kids and teens should be offered medical treatments such as drugs and surgery — in addition to intensive diet, exercise and other behavior and lifestyle interventions, said Eneli, director of the Center for Healthy Weight and Nutrition at Nationwide Children’s Hospital.

In general, doctors should offer adolescents 12 and older who have obesity access to appropriate drugs and teens 13 and older with severe obesity referrals for weight-loss surgery, though situations may vary.

History of CHD + Goals for 2023 With Executive Director Laura Bono

CHD 2023The autism community landscape has changed over the years, as everything changes. Many AofA readers were at Autism One the year Robert F. Kennedy Jr (whispers flooded the hallways, RFK Jr is HERE?!) spoke about pediatric vaccine injury and Dr. Paul Offit. We watched the debut of Eric Gladen's World Mercury Project movie Trace Amounts. We thought we were on the cusp of a breakthrough. That the autism vaccine connection would finally take center stage and the nation would wake up. Well, the nation is indeed WOKE in 2023, just not as we might have hoped. The World Mercury Project became Children's Health Defense. And Laura Bono, the Executive Director, has the deepest autism bona fides I can imagine.  Let's hope that by working simultaneously, we can change this landscape once and for all. Below is a link to CHD TV Good Morning CHD.

"The old has gone, and the new has come. It’s 2023, and much has happened since the start of Children’s Health Defense. Nadera Lopez-Garrity and Laura Bono have a lighthearted conversation on ‘Good Morning CHD’ to share highlights from the past years in the medical freedom movement as well as hopeful efforts."

"Rich People Are Different From You And Me" Dan Olmsted

WeepOur beloved founding editor Dan Olmsted had a saying, "Rich people are different from you and me." He'd tell me that when we were struggling to launch and continue Age of Autism, even as gobs of money swirled around us. Here's a prime example, and one that brings us back to the thick of autism agony. Gigi Jordan was a wealthy autism Mom who was convicted of murdering her son in a 5 star hotel some 12 years ago. We wrote about it, just as we wrote about the other parents who murdered their autistic kids. In 2020, I wrote WE CAN NOT KILL OUR KIDS following another murder. Jordan was back in the news this week, having likely committed suicide rather than face more prison time. I didn't have the heart to open the new year with this grim reminder story. The average Joe and Jane would never have been able to turn a vicious murder (she stuffed pills down her son Jude's throat causing his death) into a mental health excuse and then find a procedural error that sprung her. Imagine what that cost in lawyer fees? Never forget Jude and his agony. And never forget that autism affects the entire family. Even rich people.

Millionaire pharma exec Gigi Jordan, who killed 8-year-old son, found dead inside NYC home in possible suicide

...During a strange, six-week trial, Jordan’s defense lawyers argued she killed the boy while in a state of extreme emotional disturbance, fearing he was about to be murdered by her ex-husband.

A Manhattan jury acquitted her of the top murder count, but found Jordan guilty of manslaughter in 2014.

Jordan was sentenced to 18 years in prison — but a federal judge tossed her conviction in 2020 over a procedural misstep...

Is Quicker Better?

Sleeping-at-computer-300x199Would a quicker diagnosis have helped you?  And what do you think of virtual visits to diagnose something as serious as autism? Medicine is trending to virtual - but when you have a diagnosis that involves gross and fine motor skills, ability to listen and most of all behaviors, can the diagnosis be accurate? I appreciate wanting to cut back the incredible backlog of appointments. Last week we talked about a woman who is struggling to figure out services. Like we ALL did when our kids were first diagnosed. Early action is good. And a diagnosis is a credit card that can start services. Perhaps we should be looking at WHY we need fast appointments. From Fox Tampa:

A new company that has expanded to Florida is helping children get diagnosed with autism quicker by utilizing virtual visits.

Who Is The OG Godfather of Protecting Children?

Callous Dis Sticker
Who is the OG Godfather of protecting children? It's not the marquis MDs who are enjoying the social media spotlight today. Sure, the Covid vaccine opened eyes to the utter disconnect from health and the carefully orchestrated symphony of coercion.  Some even learned that to be a vaccine is to live on the mountain of infallibility.  Many doctors have been censored. It's all old news to us. Tiresome even, to be honest. We CAN NOT let the Covid crew ignore the pediatric schedule and I mean this with all my heart. We've been spitting into the storm for fifteen years. We need to act and think fast. Case in point:

Yesterday, I was listening to Fox Business and a doctor was lamenting having been deplatformed from YouTube because he advocated against Covid vaccine mandates. Laudable. He then went on to say that there are cases of (insert Jaws music here) MEASLES in Ohio, and that children MUST get the full pediatric schedule because those vaccines have been around for a very long time, and therefore are proven safe. I didn't catch his name in the sign off, I'd changed over to the Big 80s channel to listen to music from before the NCVIP.

Moderna Fires Back at Pfizer Counterclaims in COVID Vaccine Patent Lawsuit + More

Moderna Inc. fired back at counterclaims by Pfizer Inc. and BioNTech SE in a U.S. lawsuit over COVID-19 vaccines on Wednesday, arguing that Pfizer and BioNTech were “clearly aided” by Moderna’s technology in developing their shot.

Moderna said Pfizer and BioNTech copied its innovations and called their argument that its patented technology was pioneered by other scientists an attempt to “distract from the issues in this case.”

Cambridge, Massachusetts-based Moderna sued Pfizer and BioNTech in August, accusing the companies of infringing three patents related to messenger RNA (mRNA).

Moderna asked for an undisclosed amount of money damages from Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines sold since March. Pfizer’s vaccine made over $26.4 billion for the New York-based company in the first nine months of 2022, while Moderna sold over $13.5 billion worth of its vaccine over the same period.

A Christmas Eve Tale

Christmas hopeTwas the night before Christmas, to our readers we say

Thank you kindly for logging on every day.

Your comments were written with keen thought and care

In hopes that we'd publish them and not put them "there."

CHD and thee, the science expose

Fauci’s world of pharma and how it all goes

And Kim in her office (so close to the stove)

Baked up post after post, and some cookies with clove

The stories keep coming - vaccines that did shatter

We ask every day, "Will our voices soon matter?"

Parents who tell us their toddlers did crash

As doctors and media continue to bash

The stories are true, oh this much we know

To special ed and Dayhab our children will go

The push back from pharma has become very clear

We ask you what is it that they have to fear?

They know that they broke so many hearts

With a needle they said was "to do your part"

They say we are looking for someone to blame

Where is their conscience, their care and their shame?

Saint Fauci, then Trump, now Biden! “Vax thrice!”

Media chastises, "Just roll the dice!"

To the CDC command! You must heed our call!

Now vaccinate! Vaccinate! Vaccinate all!

As leaves before the wild hurricane fly

Some will take sick. Some will die.

Illinois Healthcare Workers Fired for Refusing a Covid Vaccine Receive Settlement

Kent legalExcerpted from The Defender. The wheels of justice moved quickly for Illinois Healthcare workers. Let's hope this settlement sets hospital CEOs and CFOs hair on fire the next time they consider firing healthy, "heroes" for turning down any vaccination, not just Covid. Same goes for University Presidents and any other executive who discriminates based on vaccination status. This is a silver lining from the lock down nightmare. Eyes are opening wide. Maybe wallets too.

###

By Zachary Stieber

A U.S. judge approved a multimillion-dollar settlement on Dec. 19 for workers who were fired by an Illinois healthcare system for refusing to get a COVID-19 vaccine.

About 500 workers who were terminated or, after seeing their exemption requests denied, got a COVID-19 vaccine, will receive compensation as part of the $10.3 million settlement, a preliminary version of which was first announced in July.

U.S. District Judge John Kness, a Trump appointee overseeing the lawsuit brought by the workers, issued verbal approval for the settlement during a hearing, lawyers for Liberty Counsel and NorthShore University Healthsystem said. Kness plans to release a written judgment in the next week.

In a brief statement emailed to The Epoch Times after Kness’s approval, NorthShore wrote, “We are pleased with the Court’s approval of a supportive resolution to this matter and continue to prioritize the health and safety of our patients and team members.”

Harry Mihet, vice president of legal affairs for Liberty Counsel, said in a statement that the group was “pleased to finally get the court’s final approval of this classwide settlement for these health care workers who were unlawfully discriminated against and denied religious exemptions from the COVID shot mandate.”

“This case should set a precedent for other employers who have violated the law by denying religious exemptions for their employees,” he said.

Liberty Counsel, a legal group that brings cases of alleged religious discrimination, was representing the 13 named plaintiffs in the case.

The group successfully won class certification for all workers who were denied religious exemptions, a group that was initially believed to be 499 former and current workers but swelled after the preliminary settlement agreement to at least 519.

As of Dec. 12, 493 class members had submitted claims for a piece of the settlement.

Each worker who was fired stands to receive $24,225. Each worker who remained at the company stands to receive $3,725.  Read more at The Defender HERE.

The Defender: Congress Set to End Military COVID Vaccine Mandate, No Sign Biden Will Veto

Uncle Sam VaccinationYesterday morning, I was listening to Julie Mason on Sirius XM's POTUS channel - Politics of the United States. I like her. She's from Massachusetts and about my age, even attended a rival prep school. She interviews people from both sides of the aisle. Yesterday, she had on Senator Tim Kaine, from Virginia, and they discussed rescinding the Covid vaccine mandate for our military.  Many of our readers and some of those close to us had to deal with the military mandate. It was difficult. The Defender, from Children's Health Defense, ran an article on the topic last week: Miss a day, miss a lot. Subscribe to The Defender's Top News of the Day. It's free.

Congress Set to End Military COVID Vaccine Mandate, No Sign Biden Will Veto

The U.S. House of Representatives is expected to vote later this week to rescind the Pentagon’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate, after Republican lawmakers threatened to withhold votes for the $858 billion National Defense Authorization Act.

The U.S. House of Representatives is expected to vote later this week to rescind the Pentagon’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate, after Republican lawmakers threatened to withhold votes for the $858 billion National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) unless the bill included removal of the mandate.

The news was confirmed Tuesday night, according to The Washington Post, which also reported that Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Ala.), the ranking Republican on the House Armed Services Committee, said the removal of the vaccination requirement “was essential for the defense policy bill to move forward.”

The Wuhan Cover-Up: How US Health Officials Conspired with the Chinese Military to Hide the Origins of COVID-19 (Children’s Health Defense)

Jacob MarleyNew from Robert Kennedy, Jr and Skyhorse Publishing. The Wuhan Cover-Up 

The Wuhan Cover-Up pulls back the curtain on how the US government's increase in biosecurity spending after the 2001 terror attacks—facilitated by Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID)—set in motion a plan to transform the NIAID into a de facto Defense Department agency.

Not the cheeriest topic for the holidays, we admit. Still, we can't ignore the implications of this complicated story that rocked the entire planet for now, almost three years. No matter how ugly. Unless we want the life of holidays future to be as bad or worse than 2021, we'd best look at the PAST or be stuck in chains forever.

The Wuhan Cover-Up


###

From the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Publishers Weekly bestselling author of The Real Anthony Fauci comes an explosive exposé of the cover-up behind the true origins of COVID-19.
 
“Gain-of-function” experiments are often conducted to deliberately develop highly virulent, easily transmissible pathogens for the stated purpose of developing preemptive vaccines for animal viruses before they jump to humans. More insidious is the “dual use” nature of this research, specifically directed toward bioweapons development.

The Ghost of Autism Past, Present & Future

Look at these two ads for seminars by Dr. Daniel Amen, one for autism, one for concussion (scroll down.) Read the first sentence of each. 

Autism isn't the challenge many think it is.
Concussions can be terrifying.

Let's switch them.

Autism can be terrifying.
Concussions aren't the challenge many think they are.

Autism families get a swift gaslighting, while concussion families are acknowledged. Autism gets Denial "care techniques." Concussion gets healing.  The seminars might be fantastic. The first impression is not. I'd like to suggest a book for the marketing team, at least.  DENIAL How Refusing to Face the Facts about Our Autism Epidemic Hurts Children, Families, and Our Future  written by Dan Olmsted and Mark Blaxill in 2017.

The Truth about Wuhan: How I Uncovered the Biggest Lie in History

By Andrew Huff: The day that Dr. Andrew G. Huff left his senior scientist and vice president role at EcoHealth Alliance was one of the happiest days of his life due to the corruption he had witnessed at the organization. However, he never thought working there would be of any great consequence to the future. He was wrong. Because, as an EcoHealth Alliance insider, Dr. Huff had had a ringside seat to one of the biggest cover-ups in history. 

 


How To Cheat and Lie with Vaccine Science: A Review of Turtles All The Way Down

Dr gaunt turtles review
By Dr. William H. Gaunt, NMD

Turtles All the Way Down: Vaccine Science and Myth was first published in Israel in early 2019. It was written in Hebrew. It has now been published in English. The authors are anonymous because doctors and scientists who question the veracity of the vaccine agenda get crushed. This is the most important book ever written about vaccines. It was written pre-Covid. Covid-19 vaccines are not covered in this book. What this book does show is clear and compelling evidence of cheating and lying with the vaccines on the CDC schedule for children. It was written, first and foremost, for parents and future parents. It is also a great resource for all others who want to know the truth about vaccines. In the introduction on page 29, the authors state: “If you choose to continue reading, you will have to gather the courage required for a journey to the other side of reality, courage to face new facts and examine them objectively, courage to ask hard questions when you are expected to merely obey, and courage to stand your ground in the face of pressure from family, friends, doctors, government officials, and what will probably feel like everyone else.” If you are ready for this challenge, read on.

The Vaccine Safety Trials for Every Vaccine on the CDC Schedule Are Fraudulent

On page 37, the authors make this clear: “Clinical trials of vaccines are rigged to hide their true (and high) rate of side effects, which means that the medical establishment’s longstanding claim that vaccines are safe has no scientific merit.” This is a serious claim and the authors back it up with solid evidence as you will see.

How Exactly Do They Cheat?

A valid safety trial should compare an Experimental Group which gets the vaccine with a Control Group that gets an Inert placebo (which is harmless). If trials are done in this way and the vaccine group has more adverse events (injuries and deaths) than the control group, those adverse events can be attributed to the vaccine being tested. In order to hide the adverse events caused by vaccines, the trials are now arranged so the “control group” gets a different vaccine instead of an inert placebo. The result is that a similar number of adverse events occur in both groups because one toxic vaccine is being compared to another toxic vaccine. The claim is then made that the vaccine being tested is safe. Doing safety trials in this way is clever but it is clearly cheating. On page 52, the authors state: “Vaccine trials in general and childhood vaccine trials specifically, are purposely designed to obscure the true incidence of adverse events of the vaccine being tested.”

Here Is an Example of Fraudulent Vaccine Safety Testing:

Bob McGrath Was Important in Our Neighborhood

Bob McGrathBob McGrath passed away at 90 years of age. Bob played "Bob" on Sesame Street for 5 decades. In 2011, I was in a restaurant in New York city, when I looked across the room and saw BOB sitting at a table with 10 or so patrons. BOB. I froze. Gathering my courage (that wasn't so hard) I motioned to a younger person at his table, "Could I approach, Bob?" She nodded, "Yes."

I walked over and promptly BURST INTO TEARS as I said to him, "Oh my goodness, you're Bob! You have no idea what you mean to my 3 daughters with autism, and me!" He was so kind. We chatted for a few minutes. He told me that he had a dear family friend whose son had autism, and he had a special interest in helping our kids. Sadly, he also said that CGI (this was 2011) was rapidly replacing the live adults and kids on the show. Sesame Street has changed with the times. Make of that what you will.

His songs were some of the classics, including a household favorite, "Who are the people in your neighborhood?" We sang it earlier this week at the dentist's office. I can make up words for any profession. My daughters have always loved Sesame Street, especially my oldest, who turns 28 this month. Her first word was "Ober," for Grover, the furry blue monster. Sesame Street's songs have guided and soothed my daughters, and helped them process their world.  Sesame Street has changed  from its inception in 1969. The program was to help children, especially city kids, who weren't represented on television, learn pre-school and Kindergarten basics. Counting, the alphabet, how to interact with people, manners, kindness. I watched the first episode in my 1st grade classroom. Any of you old enough to remember when the TV was rolled into the classroom on a tall stand? Today, public health has gotten its claws into programming. Enough said, this is an homage to Bob. A person our neighborhood that I will miss.


American Academy of Pediatricians: Have a Coke and a Shot Kid!

Coke Ad NurseHoly high fructose corn syrup! Children's Health Defense's THE DEFENDER has an article that exposes yet more twisted truth about The American Academy of Pediatrics. The company that once "Liked to teach he world to sing, in perfect harmony," funds pediatric healthcare (not to be confused with health.) Many years ago, I was at Yale Pediatrics, and appalled by the row of vending machines loaded with junk food and soda. A glass of soda, back when it was at most, 8 ounces and made with sugar, was a refreshing treat. The Big Food (such as it is food) Industry is so intertwined with healthcare, it's impossible to separate them. As an aside, if you haven't watched "Pepsi, Where's My Jet,"on Netflix,  I recommend it.

Coca-Cola: American Academy of Pediatrics a ‘Great Partner of Ours’

__________________________________________________________________

A new peer-reviewed paper in Public Health Nutrition reveals Coca-Cola’s influence on public health conferences and events, speakers, academic institutions and public health groups.

The paper is based on documents uncovered through 22 Freedom of Information requests by the nonprofit investigative research group U.S. Right to Know.

The paper is co-authored by U.S. Right to Know with researchers from the University of Cambridge and Bocconi University.

The paper found that “Coca-Cola exerts direct influence on academic institutions and organizations that convene major public health conferences and events.“

The documents “show Coca-Cola’s close collaboration with the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND)…The Obesity Society (TOS), and the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP).”

The documents show a Coca-Cola vice president stating that, “As you know AAP [American Academy of Pediatrics] is a great partner of ours…”

The researchers found, “On multiple occasions, Coca-Cola supported and selected conference speakers without being listed as an official sponsor, and without researchers declaring how their participation was funded.” We found both direct Coca-Cola funding and the use of third-party conduits.

“By sponsoring conferences, Coca-Cola can directly shape what is included and not included in conference proceedings. This is of tremendous value to the company. It can promote its own favoured solutions to obesity and public health nutrition more widely. It can also shape the narrative about what constitutes appropriate interventions.”

The researchers recommend that “There should be robust financial and conflict-of-interest disclosures for public health conferences, not only for the conference organisers, but also for speakers.” And that “Such corporate-sponsored events should be viewed as instruments of industry marketing.”

The co-authors of the paper are Jónas Atli Gunnarsson, Gary Ruskin, David Stuckler and Sarah Steele.


Book Debut: The Truth about Wuhan: How I Uncovered the Biggest Lie in History

Truth about wuhan Dr HuffToday is debut day for The Truth about Wuhan: How I Uncovered the Biggest Lie in History

Shocking new insider information that shows what really happened in Wuhan, China, at the start of the COVID-19 outbreak and in the ensuing cover-up.

Dr. Andrew G. Huff is a combat veteran, technologist, and infectious disease epidemiologist with decades of experience in scientific research, national security, and entrepreneurship. He was a senior scientist and vice president with EcoHealth Alliance and was a senior member of the technical staff at Sandia National Laboratories. He has held positions in government, non-governmental organizations, industry, and academia. When he is not fighting for truth and justice, he can be found skiing, fishing, and hunting with his family in Michigan.
 
The day that Dr. Andrew G. Huff left his senior scientist and vice president role at EcoHealth Alliance was one of the happiest days of his life due to the corruption he had witnessed at the organization. However, he never thought working there would be of any great consequence to the future. He was wrong. Because, as an EcoHealth Alliance insider, Dr. Huff had had a ringside seat to one of the biggest cover-ups in history. 

The Truth about Wuhan contains new research and a breakdown of how and why the development of COVID-19 in the United States and China was supported by the US government to collect intelligence on laboratories in China. Dr. Huff, an expert in the fields of bioterrorism and bio warfare, is a whistleblower who will show why the reasons the lab leak was covered up are incorrect. He worked on the classified research side of the program as a US government scientist. He knows the real how and why COVID-19 emerged. Besides exposing the conspiracy and cover-up, Dr. Huff also puts forth policy solutions and recommendations to prevent a lab leak virus from plaguing the world again.

Ten THOUSAND Thank Yous

Thank you typeThanks to YOU, we hit our $10,000 goal! I can not thank you enough. Those who donated. Those who read us. Those who share our posts. Those who contributed over the last 15 years. And most of all, Laura and Richard Hayes, our benefactors who so generously matched the $10,000. I'll let you in on a secret. We are what is known in IRS tax parlance as a "post card" organization. That does not mean that we vacation so often we send postcards weekly. It means we are small but mighty - and our tax return fits on a post card! I feel energized and grateful. Losing Dan Olmsted in 2017 was earth shattering. He was our co-founder, our journalism genius, our kind-hearted, rapier witted Rebel Alliance leader. Dan knew instinctively that the story of autism was profoundly important. Scandalous even. It remains so. And I'd wager (not with our $10,000 though) that Covid has inadvertently advanced our work. Millions are now aware that medicine is NOT on the up and up. Health is not the goal. Coercion is ugly. And CHOICE IS CHOICE. You can still make a year end donation here.

Thank you.

Will Twitter Transform Under Musk?

Twitter sensitive warningDuring the Spring, I kvetched that Twitter had slapped a "Sensitive content" label on all of our Tweets that included a link or photo. That was before Elon Musk stepped in. See Imagine If Twitter Became Open Again. I hope Twitter exposes all of the censorship so many of us have faced. Especially the Covid crackdown. That doesn't mean I want to see overtly controversial and despicable content allowed. But who defines pornography, right? "I know it when I see it." From CHD's The Defender.

Twitter Ditches COVID Misinformation Policy, Plans to Reveal Internal Files on ‘Free Speech Suppression’

Effective Nov. 23, Twitter is “no longer enforcing the COVID-19 misleading information policy,” the company said, adding that it will “soon” reveal internal files on the company’s “free speech suppression,” which could shed light on Twitter’s past actions in blocking content and banning accounts.

By Tom Ozimek

Twitter has stopped enforcing its COVID-19 “misleading information” policy that had resulted in nearly 100,000 pieces of content being cut from the platform and led to more than 11,000 account suspensions.

The social media giant, which was taken over by industrialist Elon Musk at the end of October, said in a report that, effective Nov. 23, Twitter is “no longer enforcing the COVID-19 misleading information policy.”

The report included information about Twitter’s enforcement actions related to its COVID-19 content policies. Between January 2020 and September 2022, there were 11.72 million accounts challenged, 11,230 accounts were suspended and 97,674 pieces of content were removed.

The policy, which was introduced to curb the spread of “harmful misinformation” related to COVID-19, was praised by some, including U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy, who in an advisory on “building a healthy information environment” cited Twitter’s rules as a model for companies to fight misinformation.

But heavy-handed enforcement of the policy garnered criticism, such as when earlier this year Twitter flagged numerous tweets with factual information about COVID-19 as misinformation and suspended accounts of scientists and doctors.

The crackdown

In one case, Twitter blocked a post from Florida Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo that promoted an analysis that asserts there were a high number of cardiac-related deaths among men who took an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine.

The post, which was unblocked hours later, reads: “Today, we released an analysis on COVID-19 mRNA vaccines the public needs to be aware of. This analysis showed an increased risk of cardiac-related death among men 18-39. FL will not be silent on the truth.” It also linked to guidance and a news release regarding the analysis.

Several members of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ administration criticized Twitter for blocking Ladapo’s post. Read more here.

ASD and Gender Dysphoria

Rainbow vaccineFrom Safeminds.Without knowing the details of the study (Safeminds provides the links in their article) one might safely conclude that non-speaking, severely affected individuals were left out. Perhaps we should ask every independent speller how they feel about their gender. I feel like my own daughters have so many insanely difficult, life and safety threatening challenges that questioning their gender is pretty far down the list. We have commented in the past that the puzzle piece was summarily dismissed and replaced by a rainbow infinity symbol. By whom? Why? Are the mechanisms of vaccination that spurred "autism" now creating this gender confusion? I'm sure no one can ask that - no matter how they identify.

November 21, 2022
Evidence of a Link Should Raise Awareness of the Condition and Generate Screenings

The Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders published a new study that shows a link between autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and gender dysphoria/incongruence (GD/GI). The authors performed a meta-analysis that included 47 separate studies; five were conducted with children, 13 with children and adolescents, two with adolescents, two with children, adolescents, and adults, nine with adolescents and adults, and 16 with only adults. The research team came to three conclusions. First, they found “a positive relationship between ASD traits and GD/GI feelings among people from the general population.” Additionally, they discovered “an increased prevalence of GD/GI in the autistic population.” Finally, they determined that there is “an increased prevalence of ASD diagnoses and ASD traits in the GD/GI population.” The authors suggest that there is likely a link between autism and gender dysphoria, which “warrants the investigation of mechanisms that could explain that link and the intensification of clinical attention to autistic GD/GI individuals.” The authors also believe that their meta-analysis can help individuals on the spectrum that are facing GD/GI issues. They state, “Evidence about a link between ASD and GD/GI might stimulate the development of appropriate trainings to raise their awareness so that GD/GI people are screened for ASD and autistic people for gender-related issues.”

Wishing a peaceful day to everyone, and a special message for my autism family. Many of us have learned to transform holidays to accommodate our loved ones with autism. Some of us made radical changes in many areas of our lives. Some of those changes were thrust upon us. And yet we forge forward because that’s what we have to do for our kids, now teens and adults. Here? Mia, Gianna and Bella are beautiful, healthy, kind, funny, safe, warm, well fed and well loved by many, including their old Mom. I wouldn’t change a moment of our journey. Even the worst of it. All roads have lead to… gratitude. And that ain’t bad. 

Wishing you a very Happy Thanksgiving. Enjoy your day.

Publishing the Cancelled: Skyhorse Publishing Walks The Free Speech Walk and Word

Tucker CarlSkyhorse Publishing's Tony Lyons was a champion for freedom of speech and the press before Elon Musk sent his first Tweet.  Last week, Tony was on Tucker Carlson's program on Fox News. Some of our readers  might turn up their nose, so I ask you to please remember the big picture. Speaking of remembering? I am old enough to remember when Tucker was on Cross Fire on CNN.  Back when debate was allowed for  entertainment and ratings, not just tribal proclamations. Note: I'm not sure if this embed code of the video below from Insta will work, but fear not, the transcript is below, courtesy of our own Anne Dachel.  Direct links to buy the books mentioned are in the transcript and at the end of this post.  The video is on our Instagram: find and follow us please at https://www.instagram.com/autismages/



###

Tucker Carlson: So people have been trying to ban books for, since well, the invention of the printing press and even before.

But for generations in this country you had brave, civil liberties-minded publishers who bucked those trends. In fact throughout the English-speaking world you had publishers—most of them left wing by the way—who said no, free people have the right to read whatever they want. 

But those publishers don’t exist anymore. In fact we’re down to pretty much just one that we know of.

The name of that company is Skyhorse Publishing, and it has done what civil libertarians did for many years. It has published works by cancelled authors: in their case, Woody Allen, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., among many others.

So the man behind this enterprise, the man who clings so tightly to the ideal of free speech in a country becoming authoritarian, is Tony Lyons and we are grateful to have him join us tonight.

Tony, thank you so much for coming on.

I’ve talked to you before, not on the air. I have no idea what your politics are. I really don’t know what your politics are, but you seem to go out of your way to publish books that people don’t want published, so it must be intentional. 

Tony Lyons: I think freedom of speech is the most important freedom we have, and it’s besieged at every side.

HFDF Helps Former Nike Employees Sue for Civil Rights Violations

HFDFHEALTH FREEDOM DEFENSE FUND HELPS FORMER NIKE EMPLOYEES SUE COMPANY FOR DAMAGES DUE TO CIVIL RIGHTS ACT VIOLATIONS AND BATTERY

Health Freedom Defense Fund (HFDF) is helping former Nike, Inc. employees to sue the company for punitive damages for religious discrimination, medical discrimination, and battery due to Nike’s COVID-19 injection mandate.

Nike holds itself up as a diverse, equitable, and inclusive employer and has even developed reams of policies and procedures to guarantee religious freedom and privacy, but Nike ignored years of policy when it came to COVID-19.

Plaintiffs Doug Kerkering, Wanda Rozwadowska, and Hannah Thibodo were valued, senior employees at Nike - until they got caught up in Nike’s aggressive COVID policies and were fired or forced to leave the company due to the company’s COVID vaccine policy.

“We are helping the plaintiffs to sue Nike because we want to send a loud and clear message to corporate America that their employees’ rights are not negotiable and that their employees are not disposable,” said Leslie Manookian, president of Health Freedom DefDo the right thingense Fund.

Nike coerced one plaintiff, the sole breadwinner for her young family, into receiving the COVID injection which caused an autoimmune reaction rendering her unable to work and forcing her to leave the company.

“Nike displayed blatant disregard for its own privacy policies and violated state and federal law by denying religious and medical accommodations to those who sought them,” said HFDF attorney to the plaintiffs, Scott Street.

By the fall of 2021, the CDC recognized that the COVID injections do not stop transmission or infection.

But Nike persisted with its policy. It continued enforcing the policy even after the Supreme Court struck down the OSHA mandate for large employers to require their employees to be injected.

“How has a once well-respected company lost its way to such a degree that it was willing to trample not only the rights of its own employees but its own policies over COVID?” said Manookian.

The case, Doug Kerkering, Hannah Thibodo, and Wanda Rozwadowska vs. Nike, Inc., was filed in US District Court in Portland, OR, November 15, 2022.  Download Nike Complaint

Lies My Gov't Told Me: And the Better Future Coming (Children’s Health Defense) by Robert W. Malone

With contributions from eminent doctors, scientists, and experts in their fields, Lies My Gov't Told Me offers a comprehensive look at the coronavirus pandemic–where we are today, how we got here, and what's on the horizon. Challenging the mainstream government-pharma-media narrative, the chapters in this book will not only outrage readers but will also inform and give readers hope.


Mid-Terms Post-Mortem

VOTE!
This was much funnier 10 years ago when I ran it on Facebook


Curious how Age of Autism readers feel after last week's mid-term election. Which topics were important to you? Which topics featured prominently by either party were not as important to you as the media suggested?  The "red wave" predicted by pollsters did not happen. A crime wave is gripping cities and small towns alike. Every trip to the grocery store is a reminder of paycheck devouring inflation. In New England, a gallon of heating oil (diesel) costs more than $5.25. A 300 gallon tank lasts 4-6 weeks during the cold weather. A woman's right to choose an abortion took center stage and may have been a catalyst after SCOTUS' decision. Yet, medical choice, the right to say "no" to vaccines was missing in every post-mortem I have heard. In fact, nothing about Covid; the lockdown, masks for children, firings, social segregation was mentioned in the Sunday talk shows.

What do you hope to see between now and the 2024 Presidential election?

Another Frustrating Report About Mothers and Autism

SadHouseI read this summary on the SafeMinds site yesterday, and was dismayed.  A Mother's Depressive Symptoms did not lead to behavioral changes.... Really? Mother’s Depressive Symptoms?  Of course caregiving takes a toll. We're often (chronically) exhausted, maybe even moody. Like RIGHT NOW! The answer is much better support for families. Schools that do their jobs properly. And doctors who have a clue about autism and biomedical issues that cause behavior. And a radical change in the American diet that wreaks havoc on behavior. Medical choice that doesn't make us pariahs. Acceptance is LOW on the list.  Isn't it nice to be patronized, and told we aren't making matters worse by our human response to the stresses, challenges and work of caring for our children? Click on the inventory of depressive symptoms and TRY not to laugh out loud or throw your shoe at the screen.

However, a Mother’s Depressive Symptoms Did Not Lead to Behavioral Issues in Their Kids

A new study published in the journal Family Process has discovered that about half of mothers of children with autism experience high depressive symptoms. This study included 86 mothers and their children, ages 2-16. Half of the mothers involved in this research had children on the spectrum. All mothers were repeatedly assessed over 18 months using the Inventory of Depressive Symptoms, a self-reported scale. Each mother also reported on their child’s behavior using the Child’s Challenging Behavior Scale, which measures tantrums, aggression, and defiance. While 50% of mothers of children with autism had elevated levels of depressive symptoms, only 6% to 13.6% of mothers of typical children experienced symptoms of depression. One of the study’s most striking findings showed that while a child’s behavioral problems did serve as a predictor for mothers experiencing depression, depressive symptoms in a mother did not lead to behavior issues in children. Interestingly, this observation did not depend on whether or not a child had a diagnosis of autism. Lead author, Danielle Roubinov expands on this research stating, “The finding that maternal depression does not lead to worsened child symptoms is especially important for mothers of children with ASD to help alleviate guilt many mothers feel about their children’s diagnosis and behavior problems. We hope these findings will reassure mothers that it’s both common to struggle with some depression in this high-stress situation of chronic caregiving and that their depression likely isn’t making their child’s behavioral issues worse.”

Quarantine Camps in New York -
Coming to your state?

Earlier his year New York Governor Kathy Hochul pushed through a regulation that would allow anyone suspected of having been exposed to a communicable disease (in other words "everybody") to be be detained and isolated for an indefinite period of time until the State decides they will let a person go.  No evidence of any illness or infection is required, and as the State admitted in Court, the regulation did not even create a way for a detained person to get their freedom.

A court stopped the regulation for now, but Gov. Hochul and Attorney General Letitia James are appealing to a higher court. They clearly want this power. The question is why? What are they planning to do?

New York, like California, is where the really bad ideas are rolled out first. And they intend to bring this to you.

Watch this panel discussion by a group of activists and attorneys who have fought this regulation layout what is going on and how to fight quarantine camps when they try it in your state.

How Anthony Fauci, the CDC, NIH, and the WHO Conspired to Overthrow President Trump

By Dr. Paul Elias Alexander and Kent Heckenlively

Presidential Takedown (Skyhorse Publishing, November 15, 2022 hardcover; $29.99) is an explosive behind-the-scenes look at Donald Trump’s final months in office and how the COVID crisis response was a carefully crafted plan to ruin him.

In January 2020, Donald Trump was on the fast track to an easy re-election. While his first two years had been stymied by House Speaker Paul Ryan, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, and the Democrats, his third year had been one of remarkable success. The United States had low unemployment and was making strides across the globe. The president’s rallies were well-attended, and he was being projected to win four hundred electoral votes and about forty-five states. Then came COVID-19. 

Dr. Paul Elias Alexander, former senior pandemic advisor in the US government for President Trump and former COVID pandemic evidence-synthesis advisor to WHO-PAHO, was on the frontlines to watch how Trump’s world, and his re-election hopes, slowly collapsed leading up to November 2020—due to the CDC, NIH, and WHO conspiring to overthrow him with the worst response possible to the COVID crisis.

Supported by emails and documents, career epidemiologist Alexander and New York Times bestselling author Kent Heckenlively, JD, will not only show proof of a presidential takedown, but also of the personal vendetta of the CDC and HHS against Alexander himself. From unnecessary lockdowns, school closures, and mask mandates to the dismissal of effective treatments like hydroxychloroquine, ivermectin, and vitamin D and even threats against President Trump and his family, Presidential Takedown: How Anthony Fauci, the CDC, NIH, and the WHO Conspired to Overthrow President Trump is the inside story of what really happened from those first COVID-19 reports to President Trump’s “loss” in November.

Ten Points about Presidential Takedown

  1. As the senior pandemic advisor, working under Michael Caputo, the number two employee at Health and Human Services (HHS), Dr. Paul Alexander had unprecedented access to the inner workings of our government during the COVID-19 crisis. Caputo specifically directed Paul to be present at all meetings, either face to face, or in private, so that he could provide his opinion as to whether the information presented to Caputo was reliable.

The SAD Season Is Here

Frozen sunNot SAD as in Seasonal Affective Disorder, although we're headed toward that here in the USA as we "Fall back" on our clocks this weekend. It's not the tick tock, it's the ticker. Sudden Adult Death, the topic of the new book from Children's Health Defense and Skyhorse Publishing: "Cause Unknown": The Epidemic of Sudden Deaths in 2021 & 2022.  There's a documentary called "Died Suddenly" due out this month, as well.

Just yesterday, there were two notable news reports of sudden deaths. One in a 38 year old NFL football coach, and the other, the author of Julie and Julia which was made into a film at age 49.

What is killing young healthy Americans?

Edward Dowd, a former Wall Street analyst and BlackRock portfolio manager, examines the epidemic of sudden deaths in America. Throughout his stock picking career, he utilized pattern recognition to get ahead of his peers and the street before his bullish or bearish thesis became consensus. Early in 2021, he noticed a rise of news anecdotes about sudden deaths among very fit athletes and other seemingly healthy young people across the country. His thesis was simple: What changed in 2021? . . . A mass vaccination campaign for Covid-19 was his conclusion. Over the course of 2021 and 2022, Edward amassed evidence from the insurance industry, funeral home industry, and government databases that excessive deaths among working-age Americans have increased in 2021 versus 2020 when vaccines were not available. This book will introduce you to some of the tragic stories that have occurred the last eighteen months and lay out the metadata to show readers that something profound changed in 2021 to cause the sudden rash of young deaths with Cause Unknown!

Dr. Joseph Ladapo's Op/Ed on Covid Vaccine Risks in the Wall Street Journal

Covid Boosters Aren’t for Everyone
For young men, the risks outweigh the benefits at this point.

By Joseph A. Ladapo
Oct. 20, 2022 6:21 pm ET

How safe are the Covid-19 vaccines? Under my leadership, the Florida Department of Health analyzed overall mortality and cardiac-related mortality risk associated with Covid-19 vaccination. We found an 84% increase in the relative incidence of cardiac-related death among men 18 to 39 within 28 days following mRNA vaccination.

The left has smeared these results as “anti-science,” as Holden Thorpe, the editor of Science, recently stated in an editorial. But time and again, the unorthodox science related to Covid-19 becomes the mainstream. Scientists have been attacked for questioning the efficacy of lockdowns, for urging schools to reopen, for challenging the effectiveness of mask mandates, and for opposing vaccine mandates and passports. The scientists asking these questions had the data on their side, but critics bowed to fear and political ideology.   This opinion piece ran in the Wall Street Journal - which has a paywall.

Florida Surgeon General Dr. Joseph Ladapo, author of Transcend Fear: A Blueprint for Mindful Leadership in Public Health, voices opposition to adding COVID-19 vaccine to CDC’s immunization schedule for children

Fear is a liarFlorida Surgeon General Dr. Joseph Ladapo, author of Transcend Fear: A Blueprint for Mindful Leadership in Public Health, voices opposition to adding COVID-19 vaccine to CDC’s immunization schedule for children

Dr. Joseph Ladapo is the first state surgeon general to speak out against CDC recommendations.

“A vaccine associated with rapidly declining effectiveness against infection, an evolving safety profile including possible subclinical myocarditis, and no high-quality evidence proving a clinical benefit to healthy children should not be added to the routine vaccine schedule. 

“It is an insult to the scientific process and shows that current leadership at the CDC and other parts of the federal government prioritize politics over common sense. Americans deserve better, more honest leadership in public health.”

In Dr. Ladapo’s book Transcend Fear: A Blueprint for Mindful Leadership in Public Health published on August 23, 2022, he describes his views on public health restrictions, early home treatment, and COVID-19 vaccines, along with how Florida officials made public health decisions that set Florida apart from other states—and nations. Based on this experience, Dr. Ladapo explains how states can make better public health decisions in the future—particularly during a crisis.

Joseph Ladapo, MDPhD is the surgeon general of Florida and professor at University of Florida College of Medicine. He received his MD from Harvard Medical School and a PhD in Health Policy from Harvard Graduate School of Arts and Sciences. Dr. Ladapo worked as an associate professor of general internal medicine and a health policy researcher at UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine. He lives in Tampa, Florida with his wife and children.

Last week, the Advisory Committee for Immunization Practices approved the addition of Covid vaccines to the pediatric schedule. This means even babies as young as six months of age could be required to have the full series (2, 3, quarterly?) of Covid vaccines to attend day care, if States add this vaccine to their school requirement list. The CDC did not mandate the vaccine - as pointed out as "misinformation" on social media. States use the CDC schedule to decide which vaccines they will add to their schedules. Age of Autism believes parents should be able to decide for their own children. Parents perfectly at ease with the current schedule yet wholly against the covid vaccine could find themselves having to submit to send their kids to school. Is this enough of a wake up after our many years of demanding an END to mandates? 

Below is an action alert from CHD. If you have alerts from other orgs, please send them to AutismAges@gmail.com. Thanks. 

October 21, 2022 Demand Public Health Agencies and Lawmakers Stop COVID Vaccine Mandates

CLICK HERE TO Demand Public Lawmakers Stop COVID Vaccine Mandates

Despite immense blowback, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) voted unanimously to add COVID-19 injections to its recommended schedule of vaccinations for infants, children and adolescents. The committee members’ votes solidify their steadfast loyalty to protecting pharma profits at the cost of children’s lives. This is the first step to granting permanent, blanket liability protection for all current and future COVID-19 injections.

This is a declaration of war on our children. The responsibility to be unrelenting as we defend the next generation from Big Pharma now falls on us. In the coming months, nearly every state in the nation will universally adopt the CDC’s recommended vaccination schedule.

Cui Bono when FDA Fast Tracks Products?

Great haste makes great wasteCui bono is Latin for "Who benefits?" It's the sister phrase of "sequi pecuniam/follow the money" and the orphan of "plebes/the people." All roads used to lead to Rome. Today, they lead to chosen industry. There are many sayings about the perils of doing tasks too fast. Haste makes waste. Measure twice, cut once. All cast aside when there is a profit to be made. And it's not the Plebeians who benefit. Today's post is from Children's Health Defense's THE DEFENDER. You can subscribe here.

Although Americans may not realize it, U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) decisions loom large in their everyday lives — one-fifth of every dollar a U.S. consumer spends goes to a product that the FDA regulates.

However, it is questionable whether consumer safety or the pocketbook concerns of the average patient drive much of the FDA’s decision-making.

As a recent report by Kaiser Health News (KHN) pointed out, nearly half (47%) of the FDA’s 2022 budget came from pharmaceutical industry “user fees” — representing “two-thirds of the drug regulation budget, and the work of at least 40% of the FDA’s 18,000 employees.” The FDA brags that the user fees, along with additional mechanisms at its disposal, merely help expedite drug development and review.

Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) Meeting Today

DA6C7460-439E-41F6-B83F-29F8DBB071A2ACIP is meeting today.The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices is a committee within the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that provides advice and guidance on effective control of vaccine-preventable diseases in the U.S. civilian population. (source CDC) Here's a webcast link.

Today, ACIP topics will include vaccines in pregnant people (the woke language is more important than safety) and the addition of the Covid vaccine to the pediatric schedule, which is the equivalent of tenure on top of being appointed to the Supreme Court. The grand prize of joining the CDC pediatric schedule is full immunity to product liability, even after the Emergency Use Authorization expires. The AAP reports low voluntary vaccination rates among children 6 months to 12 years of age. Imagine parents' surprise horror when they go to their friendly vaccinator for a well visit and find out they need a Covid vaccine to go to day care, preschool, school, camp. We've been shouting in the darkness for 15 long years. At what point, if ever, will the woke wake?

One more thing. Have you ever heard of Chikungunya Vaccines? They are on the agenda, so perhaps you will soon.

Here is the agenda for the day.
