New Jersey preschoolers have highest autism rates ever in the nation

WhyNo words.....

###

From NorthJersey.com

New Jersey preschoolers have the highest rates of autism ever measured in the United States, a rate that has increased faster than in other states studied, researchers at Rutgers University reported Thursday. The rate of autism among children here has tripled in a generation. 

One in 35 children in New Jersey was diagnosed with autism by their 4th birthday, according to the study published by the federal Centers for Disease Control on Thursday. Those children were more likely to have attracted the attention of pediatricians and early-childhood educators because of moderate to severe symptoms of autism. Still more children are diagnosed with autism when they enter public schools. 

The relentless climb in autism rates — from 1% of children born in 1992 to 3% of children born in 2010 — has shown no signs of reaching a plateau, said Walter Zahorodny, an associate professor at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School who directed the New Jersey portion of the study.  Read more here.


Child Health Defense Launches Immediate Legal Challenge Against New York City’s Public Health Emergency Due to Measles

CHD logoFrom Robert Kennedy Jrs's Child Health Defense organization

In an unprecedented move, the New York City Health Commissioner on April 9, 2019 has imposed an emergency forced vaccination order, requiring ALL people living in four Brooklyn zip codes to receive the MMR vaccine (if they do not have proof of immunity or medical contraindication) within 48 hours or risk criminal and civil penalties. New York Mayor Bill de Blasio made the announcement.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said today that it’s “legally questionable” whether people can be forced to get vaccinated if it violates their religious beliefs. “Look it’s a serious public health concern, but it’s also a serious First Amendment issue and it is going to be a constitutional, legal question,” Cuomo said.  “Do we have the right — does society, government have the right to say ‘you must vaccinate your child because I’m afraid your child is going to infect my child, even if you don’t want it done and even if it violates your religious beliefs?’ So that is, that’s an issue that’s going to be legally questionable and I’m sure it’s going to go down that path,” Cuomo added.

Children’s Health Defense is supporting a legal effort to restrain this order immediately. Vaccination choice is a human right. While New York City unquestionably has the authority to isolate infectious individuals, and even to quarantine them, and to exclude unvaccinated children from schools during an outbreak in that school, it does not have the authority to require vaccination for all individuals on the basis of zip codes with vaccines that explicitly carry the risk of death. This government overreach requires challenge.

Texas Bill Would Increase Vaccine Safety, Reject Federal Narrative

Texas magnet Rarer than a Jackelope! A bill for vaccination SAFETY not mandates. Imagine that. The Lone Star state sure is the Alone Star state compared to many. We've excerpted it below.

************

By Davis Taylor
TheTenthCommandmentCenter.com

AUSTIN, Texas (April 8, 2019) – A bill introduced in the Texas Senate would prohibit vaccines from being administered unless certain safety criteria are met. Passage of the bill would significantly strengthen vaccine safety testing requirements and push back against any future federal vaccine mandates.

Sen. Bob Hall (R) introduced Senate Bill 2350 (SB2350) on March 8. The legislation would only permit a health care provider to administer a vaccine if all of the following criteria are met.

  • The study the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) relied upon for approval of the vaccine evaluated the vaccine against a placebo control group or against another vaccine or substance that the FDA approved based upon a placebo-controlled study;
  • The study relied upon by the FCA for approval of the vaccine evaluated the safety of the vaccine for a sufficient time to identify potential autoimmune, neurological, or chronic health conditions that may arise on or after a year from the vaccine being administered;
  • The vaccine has been evaluated for its potential to cause cancer, mutate genes, affect fertility, cause infertility and cause autism spectrum disorder;
  • The Texas Department of State Health Service has posted on its website disclosure of any known injuries or diseases caused by the vaccine and the rate at which the injuries or diseases have occurred; and
  • The chemical, pharmacological, therapeutic, and adverse effects of the vaccine and the rate of injury of the vaccine when administered with other vaccines, have been studied and verified.

Effect on Federal Policy

After recent comments by former FDA Commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb in February of 2019 just prior to his resignation, some believe that federal vaccine mandates are imminent.  According to CNN, Gottlieb said, “[I]f states don’t require more schoolchildren to get vaccinated, the federal government might have to step in.” Gottlieb also reportedly said, “You could mandate certain rules about what is and isn’t permissible when it comes to allowing people to have exemptions.” [1] As discussed below, current vaccine safety testing requirements are far less stringent than most would assume.  Passage of SB 2350 would bolster these requirements and make enforcement of any federal vaccine mandates more difficult.

Number of Recommended Vaccines Steadily Rise Since Removal of Liability

Vaccine mandates are generally based upon the vaccine schedules recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Because vaccines pose a risk of injury or death, liability is associated with them. Many Americans are unaware that the pharmaceutical industry is shielded from liability for harm caused by most vaccines. This unique legal protection was put into place as a result of legislation passed in 1986, after extensive lobbying by the pharmaceutical industry. Manufacturers of other products don’t enjoy this freedom from liability. Due to lack of liability, vaccines are the pharmaceutical industry’s most lucrative product.

The 1986 law also created the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP), which is essentially a special system outside of the normal litigation process to hear claims of harm caused by vaccines. Any compensation granted by the NVICP is paid by the public, through a surcharge on vaccines, and not by vaccine manufacturers. To date, over four billion dollars has been paid under this system to compensate for harm caused by vaccines. [2]

Further, although discovery is a right afforded to litigants in most other legal forums, discovery is not permitted in the NVICP process. This protects vaccine manufacturers from having to search for, and produce, relevant information, including damaging information. In cases involving prescription medication, which are heard in other legal forums, information unfavorable to the pharmaceutical industry has come to light through discovery, such as the damaging e-mails which were required to be produced in the Vioxx litigation.

Mayor de Blasio Demands 3 Vaccines to fight One Disease Outbreak in Heavily Jewish Brooklyn Area

All or nothingWhat? THREE VACCINES? Yes. There is NO MEASLES VACCINE. Not since Merck stopped making it in 2009. Perhaps the Vaxstapo should be pounding on MERCK'S door, not local citizens.  Even when you choose to vaccinate for measles, you really have no choice. You must vaccinate for mumps and rubella whether you need (additional) protection or not. And if you think the mumps vaccine component is effective we have both a bridge in Brooklyn AND a Navy Ship in quarantine at sea to sell you.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio on Tuesday declared a public health emergency in a heavily Orthodox Jewish section of Brooklyn amid a growing measles outbreak.

As part of the declaration, people living in select zip codes of Brooklyn's Williamsburg neighborhood who have not been vaccinated against measles and may have been exposed to the highly-contagious virus will now be required to get the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine. Source ABC News

To "fight" the measles outbreak amid the Hasidic community in an area of the borough of Brooklyn, New York (the city of New York is divided into 5 distinct boroughs, Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan and Staten Island) he is mandating vaccination for not just measles, but also mumps and rubella. Two diseases not currently in any sort of outbreak, unless you count a Naval ship that is sitting out of commission in the middle of the ocean, but that's another post.

Merck stopped making the MEASLES vaccine in 2009 .  Parents who may well have opted for this single - monovalent - vaccine have said no to the combination MMR vaccine. Why should families have to choose to vaccinated for three diseases at once? The removal of the Measles vaccine may be at the root of many of the outbreaks. If public health officials were really concerned with health, and disease prevention, they would be pounding on MERCK'S door demanding the monovalent vaccination, not on the doors of religious families exercising their right to vaccine exemption.

Allison Chapman wrote a post for Age of Autism about Merck's decision to limit parental product choice back in 2009 (read the full post here.)

Your choice to work with your pediatrician on safer vaccine schedule has just received a very large blow.  Merck and Co. has decided to take away your option of separating the MMR, instead of getting the whole shebang at once.  Forget those who may be predisposed to not handling 3 viruses at once; you know the weak, the infant who may need a bit more time.  What if they are unable to take one of the viruses due to allergy of an ingredient, but have decided to go ahead with one or both of the others?  Well too bad, allergy or not you have lost your right to choose.  It’s now, all or nothing.

Corvelva Updates Scientific Vaccine Purity Safety Testing

Grazie  mille a la nostra amici a Corvelva.Corvelva vaccingate

Click here to see this full report at the Corvelva site.

We want to take stock of the situation together with you. Eight months have passed since July 2018 and in these length of time we have achieved extremely satisfying results. We have presented a research program and regarding the vaccines analysis we are able to make a point of reference, with the objectives achieved, those being finalised and those only planned for now.

To begin with, the analyses of 2 compounds for each vaccine have been verified by means of standards, using certified control standards with a concentration in the order of micrograms / mL. The compounds we have chosen are among those known for their critical hazard profile. We are talking about a cumulative quantity, a total amount of those recognized as identities and those to be identified, which can be estimated within the order of 50 micrograms / mL, in contrast to the EMA / FDA guidelines.

These tests have given positive results, therefore they fully confirm the analysis method! The contaminations observed are probably due to different and variable manufacturing process’ phenomena and topics. What has been observed in the course of the studies is an “inter-batches” variation of the composition, which makes us assume that there are some steps along the whole product manufacturing process that are difficult to control.

Such analyses have allowed us to achieve the following steps:

  • Conformity assessment of composition as outlined in the vaccine datasheet
  • Screening for chemical and protein/peptide contaminations, as well as those deriving from genetic material
  • Confirmatory study of chemical and protein target compounds through con standard certificates of inspection

The following vaccines have been submitted to an initial screening:

Rebuttal to Ocala (Florida) Newspaper Vaccine Op-Ed from Dr. William Gaunt

Impossible thingsMy such certainty - the kind parents of children vaccinated into a autism diagnosis are NEVER allowed in James Elmore's flat world.  Below the snippet and link of Mr. Elmore's opinion piece, AofA contributor Dr. William Gaunt responds:

From Mr. Elmore: "Raising a special needs child can be hard. Our oldest son is autistic. We are thankful that he is otherwise healthy. Raising him has been a challenge, but he has turned out to be a fine young man and will graduate high school next year.

I have often wondered why he is autistic. What I know is that it wasn’t a vaccine that made him this way.

In a quest for answers, many parents of autistic children are scouring the Internet. There is no scientific consensus on what causes autism, but environmental and genetic factors appear to be the primary suspects.

However, there is a lot of really misleading and outright false information about autism and the root cause on the Internet. The group known as “anti-vaxxers” would have you believe that vaccines are driving the increase in autism diagnoses around the world. Their evidence is 100 percent fabricated.

Opinion James Elmore: Refusing to vaccinate children is child abuse

An Anti-Vaxxer Responds

By William Gaunt

James Elmore’s “Anti-vaxxers” article appeared in the opinion section on March 12, 2019.  I qualify as an anti-vaxxer because I have four unvaccinated sons and a daughter adopted from China who has not had any vaccines since we got her at age two in 2009.  

Elmore wrote that refusing to vaccinate children is child abuse.  I don’t expect to change Elmore’s mind but I wish to provide some information for those who are not already totally pro-vaccine.  The selective exposure theory is that individuals tend to favor information which reinforces their pre-existing views while avoiding contradictory information.  The theory of cognitive dissonance tells us that people of strong convictions are very reluctant to change their beliefs even in the face of undeniable contradictory evidence.

The topic of vaccines is very important.  I think we can all agree on that.  If the benefits of vaccines far outweigh the risks then we should all get vaccinated.  But what if vaccines are not as safe and effective as we are told?  I’d like to present some facts and opinions that address this issue.

Scurrilous, Misleading Attack On Prof Christopher Exley By The Sunday Times

image from www.keele.ac.ukby John Stone

An attack on leading aluminium toxicity expert Christopher Exley in the Sunday Times yesterday begins with the false claim in the title that his funding has been halted. This seems like a blatant attempt to mislead: what was halted the week before last after political pressure was a Go Fund Me page for supporting his research, while the Keele University website has remained open for donations. Another false claim is that there were no controls for his autism brain study. While there were no "normal" brains in the study there were comparisons:

"The aluminium content of brain tissues from donors with a diagnosis of ASD was extremely high (Table 1). While there was significant inter-tissue, inter-lobe and inter-subject variability the mean aluminium content for each lobe across all 5 individuals was towards the higher end of all previous (historical) measurements of brain aluminium content, including iatrogenic disorders such as dialysis encephalopathy [13][15][16][17][18][19]. All 4 male donors had significantly higher concentrations of brain aluminium than the single female donor. We recorded some of the highest values for brain aluminium content ever measured in healthy or diseased tissues in these male ASD donors including values of 17.10, 18.57 and 22.11 μg/g dry wt. (Table 1). What discriminates these data from other analyses of brain aluminium in other diseases is the age of the ASD donors. Why, for example would a 15 year old boy have such a high content of aluminium in their brain tissues? There are no comparative data in the scientific literature, the closest being similarly high data for a 42 year old male with familial Alzheimer’s disease (fAD) [19]."

Professional concerns about the use of aluminium adjuvants in vaccine products are by no means unique to Prof Exley and colleagues.

The professional attack in the report is led by Andrew Pollard who is said to be a professor of "paediatric infection": it does not mention Pollard's manifold roles as leader of Oxford Vaccine Group, which develops vaccines with the industry (mostly containing aluminium), as chair of the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation which recommends vaccines to the British schedule, as leading adviser to the British and European licensing agencies, and board member of the Jenner Vaccine Foundation. In July 2017 he also called in the Guardian newspaper for compulsory vaccination without disclosing any of these roles. Real investigative journalists might be asking what research Pollard has ever undertaken into the safety of aluminium adjuvants in vaccine products which he helps develop, recommend and license?

Professor Christopher Exley in January 2018 on the "Deafening Response" to his Aluminium in Brain Tissue in Autism Paper

Not listeningApril 8, 2019: Professor Exley has been attacked and his work disparaged in the British media.  See our post today by John Stone titled, Scurrilous, Misleading Attack On Prof Christopher Exley By The Sunday Times He is being "Wakefielded" because he research on aluminum brain toxicity crosses the vaccine profit barrier. Here is an article he wrote in 2018, just 15 months ago. I shouldn't help but wonder if he would prefer the din of silence today.  We are so sorry to see the media boot on his neck. Here is the paper being discussed: Aluminium in brain tissue in autism

"I was aware of the emotive nature of our research and especially as I knew that it would bring into focus a possible link between aluminium adjuvants in vaccines and autism, though this link was not discussed in the paper. However, I am not sure that I was prepared for the nature of the response to our research. Perhaps the most deafening response has been the tsunami of silence perpetuated by all mainstream media, almost globally!" Professor Exley

January 16, 2018


Note: Chris Exley Professor in Bioinorganic Chemistry Keele University Honorary Professor, UHI Millennium Institute Group Leader - Bioinorganic Chemistry Laboratory at Keelepublished expresses what so many brave scientists before him have encountered when their results challenge the status quo.  He calls the refusal to cover his science "the din of silence." We know it's a playbook straight out of the age of Big Tobacco. Cover up. Shut up. Shut down.  Thank you, Professor Exley.

By Professor Chris Exley

Sometimes silence can speak volumes. In December 2017, we published in a highly reputable journal our research suggesting a link between human exposure to aluminium and the aetiology of autism.

The research showed that individuals who died with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) had very high levels of aluminium in their brain tissue. However, the standout observation was not necessarily the amount of aluminium but its predominant location in non-neuronal cells and especially microglia.

In an interview immediately following presentation of this research, I expressed my opinion that these new data had forced me to change my mind about a putative role for aluminium in autism.

I was aware of the emotive nature of our research and especially as I knew that it would bring into focus a possible link between aluminium adjuvants in vaccines and autism, though this link was not discussed in the paper. However, I am not sure that I was prepared for the nature of the response to our research. Perhaps the most deafening response has been the tsunami of silence perpetuated by all mainstream media, almost globally! Compliant with this has been my own University that did not even deem the research ‘worthy’ of a mention in its own weekly news outlet. When one considers the nature of much of the science that makes headline news one is left wondering what it is about a link between aluminium and autism that is not deemed newsworthy. Perhaps mainstream media were unaware of the research.

The Day is Done: Judge Rolf Thorsen Issues Temporary Injunction Against Measles Emergency Declaration in Rockland County NY

HindenburgNote: With apologies to William Wordsworth Longfellow for the headline. Looks like the public health/pharma trial balloon of quarantining THE HEALTHY has gone the way of The Hindenberg. At least for the moment. Let's assume that Rolf Thorsen is NOT from the same gene pool (or moral pool) at Poul Thorsen, fugitive and MMR vaccine scientific hit man.)  Oh! The Humanity!

###

NEW CITY - A judge today halted Rockland County Executive Ed Day's emergency declaration barring children who are unvaccinated against measles from schools, places of worship and other public areas.

Acting state Supreme Court Judge Rolf Thorsen's injunction stated that the 166 cases cited by the county since the measles outbreak began last October did not rise to the level of an epidemic or constitute a disaster. Day's reliance on executive law in issuing the emergency declaration "may have been misplaced," the decision stated.

Thorsen agreed with the families who sued the county when they said their children would continue to miss school, and the parents would continue to incur monetary expenses as a result of the order. The families asserted that the children posed no threat to other children at a school where there had been no reported cases of the measles.

Michael Sussman, attorney for several dozen parents whose unvaccinated children attend Green Meadow Waldorf School in Chestnut Ridge, said the decision showed the judge agreed with his contention that the emergency declaration "is an improper vehicle for an over-broad order of this sort."

"We expect all schools in the county, where children who have religious exemptions and have been barred ... will be returned to school so they can continue their education," Sussman said late Friday afternoon.

Although Thorsen's injunction is temporary, the fate of the state of emergency is unclear. The county has the option of filing papers in advance of an April 19 court appearance, but by then Day's 30-day state of emergency would be almost done.

Day expressed disappointment in the ruling but maintained his belief that the order made a difference.

"While today’s ruling by Judge Thorsen did not go as we had expected I want to commend those here in Rockland who have used this State of Emergency as an opportunity to get vaccinated and have conversations with their friends and neighbors about vaccination," he said in a statement. "We sought to find a new way to fight back against a disease that was eradicated almost 20 years ago and refused to sit idly by while those in Rockland were put at risk."

Drew worldwide attention

Thorsen's ruling followed Thursday afternoon's arguments in a pair of lawsuits brought by parents whose unvaccinated children have been affected by the state of emergency instituted March 26 by the county executive.

The order was intended to put the brakes on a measles outbreak that started in October when a traveler from Israel visited the county. Many of the 167 cases have occurred in the insular Orthodox and Hasidic communities in the Monsey and Spring Valley area.

Failure of Mumps Component of MMR and Male Infertility

Mumps can't playNote: Mother Nature can be cruel. And she can be kind. She can also be smart. Many years ago, I met with a physician who talked about how the "schedule" of childhood diseases laid down the immune system needed for a strong adulthood.  There are five viral rash diseases: measles, rubella, chicken pox, roseola and erythema infectiosum - which you and I call "Fifth Disease." It's number 5. We have vaccines against measles, rubella and chicken pox. And so the media goes wild with every case. We do not have a vaccine for roseola or Fifth disease - to which I was exposed while pregnant with my first child.  And so you never hear of cases of these diseases.

Before sanitation, antibiotics, modern healthcare, and nutritional support, many children did not survive their toddler years. Graveyards are full of weathered markers that bear witness to the power of these diseases. What happens when adults contract diseases that have been "put off" by childhood vaccination? Robert Kennedy Jr discusses the problem with adult onset mumps and male fertility problems as a result of vaccine failure.

Merck's MMR vaccine, when it fails to protect against mumps, puts males at risk of infertility MMR Vaccine’s Poison Pill: Mumps After Puberty, Reduced Testosterone and Sperm Counts

Across the country, frenzied legislators are responding to the pharmaceutical industry’s orchestrated fear campaign around measles by seeking to impose further mandating of Merck’s measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine. Although ongoing mumps outbreaks involving thousands of at-risk adolescents and young adults completely dwarf the number of measles cases, no one is covering the mumps story—because it will expose the fact that Merck has been in court for over eight years due to scientists blowing the whistle on Merck’s fabrication and falsification of the effectiveness of the mumps component of its MMR vaccine. Instead of punishing Merck for its chicanery, legislatures are rewarding the company by making it impossible to refuse Merck’s profitable vaccine, subjecting a generation of American children to the risk of serious complications from mumps infection at an age that nature never intended.

When younger children experience mumps, the virus is relatively harmless; infected children often exhibit no symptoms. When mumps strikes adolescents or adults, on the other hand, the infection can cause far more serious adverse effects, including inflammation of various organs (brain, pancreas, ovaries and testicles)—as well as damage to male fertility.

Inflammation of one or both testicles (a condition called orchitis) occurs in approximately one in three post-pubertal men who get mumps and can contribute to sperm defects and subfertility as well as impairing the function of cells that produce testosterone. An estimated 30% to 87% of men with bilateral orchitis induced by mumps experience full-blown infertility—a major cause for concern given the significant declines in male fertility observed over the past several decades. Thus, it appears that Merck’s vaccine, instead of protecting children, not only delays onset of disease to later age cohorts but has the potential to cause serious and permanent injury.

By Becca Tucker

A six-month measles outbreak has Rockland County in a state of emergency, with unvaccinated kids barred first from school and then, in a move that made international headlines, from public places.

Rockland County Executive Ed Day and health officials say the extraordinary measures are necessary to protect the public from a highly contagious and potentially dangerous disease.

A growing group of concerned parents is suing, saying the county’s strong-arm tactics are out of proportion and imperil families’ rights to make appropriate medical choices for their children.

Dr. Hendrieka Fitzpatrick, a general practitioner in New Jersey with an expertise in women’s and children’s health, is one of those people who say the county has gone too far. “We can’t start taking people’s choice away” over the measles vaccine.

Regarding measles itself, Fitzpatrick said: “I’m not saying it’s not miserable, but it’s not life threatening” in the Western world. “It’s probably milder in children than the flu,” she said.

The last measles death in the U.S. occurred in 2015, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Severe measles, the kind that can kill you, “is more likely among poorly nourished young children, especially those with insufficient vitamin A, or whose immune systems have been weakened by HIV/AIDS or other diseases,” the World Health Organization says on its website. “More than 95 percent of measles deaths occur in countries with low per capita incomes and weak health infrastructures.”  READ MORE HERE AT The Advertiser-News.


Vaccine Beat from Leslie Manookian on Censorship

Greater Good banner
We are pleased to share this video from film maker Leslie Manookian, who created the movie The Greater Good.

Recently Congress held mock hearing regarding vaccines. They allowed no opposing testimony. Congressman Adam Schiff sent a letter to tech giants Facebook, Google, and Amazon asking them to censor vaccine-related material. Amazon took The Greater Good off of Amazon Prime. History shows us that when those in power resort to censorship, they probably have something to hide.

 


Discrimination Against the Healthy and “Less Sick”

Sneetches
Dr. Seuss The Sneetches

By Laura Hayes

In CA, SB276 would add further restrictions to already-difficult-to-obtain Medical Exemptions to vaccination. Should this bill become law, MEs currently on file will be scrutinized by a state public health officer or his designee, and be subject to being revoked. All future ME “requests” will be submitted via a standardized form to this state public health officer, who will be given the sole authority to accept or deny it. Reasons for requested MEs must be listed in the CDC’s guidelines for vaccine contraindications, an extremely limited and incomplete list.

Presently in CA, the rate of MEs is .7% of kindergartners, an extremely small number of students whom Senator Pan, initiator of SB276, wants to make even smaller, no matter the harm to those with MEs.

For those who follow my work, you know that I do not support focusing time and energy on retaining or broadening exemptions, as they will always be under attack to be further restricted and/or completely eliminated, as we are witnessing nationwide. Rather, I support and work toward the immediate banning of vaccine mandates, which would eliminate the need for exemptions completely. However, that does not keep me from pointing out this obvious injustice:

Why should children who have serious/certain medical conditions, as designated by the CDC, be more protected from vaccine harm than healthy children, or than children with “less serious”/non-designated medical conditions?

This is blatant discrimination, and it is wrong. In truth, no child should be injected with the toxic, neurotoxic, poisonous, carcinogenic, immune-and-nervous-system-destroying, GI-damaging, fertility impairing/sterilizing, mutagenic ingredients in vaccines.

In these tyrannical times, immediate legal action is urgently needed to make “healthy and non-CDC-designated sick children” a legally protected class.

To clarify, the group of people needing protection would have the common characteristic of being children who are either “healthy” or “not sick enough” (the latter according to the CDC). This group of people is being discriminated against by being mandated to be injected with 70 potentially-fatal vaccines, via numerous and frequent invasive medical procedures, beginning at birth, either because they are currently healthy or because their medical condition is not “serious enough” according to the CDC. They are being unjustly targeted to be disproportionately and unfairly responsible for “maintaining public health” via the purported, but incorrect and disproven, theory of vaccine-induced herd immunity.

What's More Contagious A Healthy Child without MMR Vaccine or Your Local Ball Play Pit

Drop ballsA study that is almost laughable in its "no poop Pumpkin" conclusion hit the media this week. 

BALL PITS ARE FULL OF GERMS

I know - knock us over with a feather. Giant plastic pits full of plastic balls and toddlers who pee, poop and snot it up while playing. Interesting to note a twist - the study did not even look at public place ball pits like McDonald's or UpChuck E Cheese. It looked at physical therapy centers!  You'd think they clean more frequently than the local McD's wouldn't you?

I appreciate that the results say kids NEED germs to build an immune system. It's immune compromised children who are most at risk, and we need to look out for them. The answer, sad as it is, is that if you have a child who has an immune issue, ball pits are probably not a good choice. You'll have to stay away. And if my child was sick, I would not bring him or her to a play or therapy ball pit. Good manners. Common sense.

Common sense - too bad it's not contagious. Maybe Merck is working on a vaccine for it.


Elsevier "Withdraws" Spanish Sheep Veterinary Study: By Celeste McGovern

Elsevier
"Non Solus" except "Scholar" has been replaced by "Pharma."

Thank you Celeste McGovern for allowing us to excerpt and link her article. I took Latin in high school, and am always interested in mottoes. Non Solus as the motto for publisher Elsevier described the symbiotic relationship between publisher and scholar. Alas, scholar has been replaced by pharma.

###

Elsevier’s “withdrawal” of a small veterinary study breaks all the rules of scientific publishing. The biggest name in scientific literature has produced fake medical journals for Merck’s advertisers before, so yanking a study that doesn’t pass the vaccine industry’s sniff test would be nothing. Celeste McGovern looks at a case study of how Pharma is killing science.

It’s not often that veterinary research is so controversial that it falls into the jaws of censorship zealots. That is exactly what happened recently, however, when editors at a science journal suddenly turned on a small Spanish sheep study which they had already peer-reviewed and published and stamped it: “WITHDRAWN” — the equivalent of a scarlet letter “A” in the science publishing world.  This was not about shoddy science or ethical breaches; an editor tried to soothe the outraged veterinary professor at the head of the research. But the focus was “delicate” and “controversial” and someone — some anonymous letter-writer – had wanted the study removed, and the journal acquiesced.

Dear Dr. Luján,

“I wanted to step in here to say that your manuscript is not being retracted – which implies wrongdoing and could damage your professional reputation,” Anne-Marie Pordon, publisher of Pharmacology and Pharmaceutical Sciences titles for Elsevier journals interjected in a heated e-mail exchange between the lead researcher and various editors.  “We are withdrawing the paper, which does not imply misconduct in any way. There will be simply a statement that says “This paper has been withdrawn at the request of the _____” (Authors or Editors in the blank.)”   Pick your poison. You remove it, or we remove it.

Mercky past

Elsevier journals are described as “one of the world’s major providers of science, technical and medical information.”  They also have a skeleton or two in the closet. A decade ago, they were exposed in a private injury case for being paid by Merck to manufacture and distribute two completely fake journals to market Merck’s drugs. They looked like authentic, peer-reviewed science journals, but they contained only favourable studies about the use of Merck’s deadly Vioxx and another drug with potentially fatal side effects. Nowhere did they disclose that they were paid advertising for Merck.  Four more fake Elsevier journals were sponsored by unnamed pharmaceutical companies.

From Autism Action Network: US Take Action: NY County banning un-vaxxed kids is a threat to all of us

    Yesterday, Ed Day, the County Executive of Rockland County, New York, declared a state of emergency and ordered that no minors under the age of 18 who are not vaccinated with the measles/mumps/rubella vaccine (MMR) are allowed in public spaces for the next thirty days beginning this morning at midnight. Violation of the order is a Class B misdemeanor punishable with up to 6 months in jail. Public places include schools, businesses, public transportation, houses of worship, and other indoor spaces. Unvaccinated minors are allowed to remain in private homes, private vehicles and outdoor spaces.

    Day stated at a press conference yesterday that this is perhaps the first time in American history where any healthy person has been excluded from public places based on their vaccine status.

    Since last November there have been a reported 153 cases of measles in Rockland County. Yesterday, Kevin McKay, an investigator with the Rockland County Department of Public Health stated in an interview with John Gilmore of the Autism Action Network that there are currently 4 known active cases of measles in Rockland County. Rockland County is a suburb of New York City with a population of 328,000.

   This unprecedented move is a direct threat to anyone in the United States who has a religious or secular exemption from vaccine mandates. Normally we would not encourage people outside of a jurisdiction where an event is happening to get involved, but this is an action of national significance. Regardless of where you live please make the following calls.

     Please click on the Take Action Link above to send a message to Ed Day, NY Governor Andrew Cuomo, and NY Health Commissioner Zucker stating your opposition to the ban.

   Before you take action if you value the news, information, and advocacy brought to you by the Autism Action Network please support our work here: https://grouprev.com/autismactionnetwork2019

    Please call County Executive Day and Rockland County Health Commissioner:

Rockland County Executive Ed Day, (845) 638-5122

Rockland County Commissioner of Health Patricia Schnabel, (845) 364-2512

Comment on Day’s Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/edwin.j.day1/

Tweet Day at @rocklandgov and @ElectEdDay (his 2018 campaign site)

    Please call the office of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and State Health Commissioner Howard Zucker and ask them to override Day's declaration. Cuomo has not ruled out a run for President in 2020, so non-New Yorkers please call.

Governor Andrew Cuomo, (518) 474-8390

Commissioner Howard Zucker, (518) 474-2011

    The target for this move is children who have religious exemptions from vaccine mandates. Rockland County has a large Hasidic Jewish population where religious reasons contrary to vaccination are common. The majority of cases have been in the Hasidic community.

    According to statements made yesterday by Day the vaccination uptake rate at public schools is very high. In fact the Clarkstown School District, one of the largest in the county, is notorious for not allowing any religious exemptions despite the legal right to do so in New York. The claim was also made that the vaccination rate among children country wide with the MMR is 72% indicating that the majority of religious exemptions are among the private, mostly Jewish, schools. Despite the obvious concentration in the Hasidic community Day referred on his Facebook to people who have religious exemptions as "mentally nebulous" and followers of "expert teachings of Hollywood actors" and referred to Jenny McCarthy and Robert DeNiro in yesterday's press conference.       

     Day recently drew a great deal of attention to his Irish Catholic roots around St. Patrick's Day but he is obviously unaware that the Roman Catholic Church, Day's church, has serious moral reservations with vaccines made from aborted fetal tissue like the MMR. In a 2005 document written under the direction of Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, later Pope Benedict 16, the Vatican's Pontifical Academy for Life stated, "Therefore, doctors and fathers of families have a duty to take recourse to alternative vaccines  (if they exist), putting pressure on the political authorities and health systems so that other vaccines without moral problems become available. They should take recourse, if necessary, to the use of conscientious objection with regard to the use of vaccines produced by means of cell lines of aborted human foetal origin."

    The declaration does not include adults who do not have immunity, estimated at 7%, nor children not vaccinated for medical reason even though they could still be potential carriers.

    Day claimed that more than 17,000 MMR vaccines have been given since November. The MMR is a live virus vaccine; therefore recently vaccinated people can infect other people with the measles. If the people getting measles are ill with the strain in the MMR, that would indicate that they were infected by a shedding person.

    Parents of children with an IEPs please be aware that your child's school is still required to provide the services called for in the IEP, regardless if the child is in school or not. Please call your school today to determine how the school will provide the federally mandated IEP services.

    Despite the number of religious exemptions in the Hasidic community, or perhaps in part because of them, Rockland was declared the "Healthiest County in New York." in statewide survey released on March 19.

    Please share this message with friends and family, and please share on social networks (while you still can.) 


Women Demand Action from FDA About Breast Implant Danger

BraA news story hit yesterday across the media about breast implant danger. Women who became sick from the implants as a result of a lack of informed consent are demanding the FDA make changes. Remember, you can't consent if you do not know the actual dangers of a product. Sound familiar?  I hope these women, who voluntarily chose surgery - some after mastectomy no doubt, others for cosmetic reasons, help the average American realize that the FDA does not have our health at heart.

We try to warn others. We are shut down. I think we're all getting tired of the charade of healthcare. And that Uncle Sam will look out for us. That photo? It's an OT success story from many years ago when my vaccine injured daughter finally mastered her cutting skills, and cut my favorite bra. I wasn't warned. Were you?  Kim

‘I was not warned’ - Women who say they were sickened by breast implants demand FDA action

Women who say they were harmed by breast implants demanded the Food and Drug Administration take new steps to protect consumers, including providing more information about potential risks and banning devices linked to the most serious complications.

Telling searing stories about broken health, disrupted families and lost careers, the women pressed an FDA advisory panel to recommend more long-term research, bans or restrictions on certain products and a beefed-up informed consent process so that women have a clear understanding of the risks and benefits of the devices before they opt for surgery.

“I was not warned" about the risks of implants, Jamee Cook, an advocate and former ER paramedic, told the FDA’s expert committee. Cook, who lives near Dallas, said that after getting implants in 1998, she suffered for years from swollen lymph nodes, chronic fatigue, migraines and a low-grade fever. She said she eventually had the devices removed, after which many, but not all, of her symptoms eased.


What Really Happened In Connecticut? Yale Bailed & Vaccine Knowledge Censorship Continues

Yale BulldogBy Jennifer Giustra-Kozek and LeeAnn Ducat of Informed Choice USA

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.”

Letter to the Presidents of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints about Vaccination Choice

MormonThank you to Brett Wilcox from his blog RunningTheCountry for sharing this letter he wrote. America was founded on religious freedom. And yet even here in my colonial state of Connecticut, religious vaccination exemptions are threatened. This about it. If Gardasil is mandated for your son and daughter - and it is a vaccine for a sexually transmitted disease - should you have the right to say "No thank you" for your 11 or 12 year old, perhaps allowing them to make the choice at 18? If the vaccine is mandated on the school schedule, also in play in many states, then you will not have the right to say no without perhaps even being barred from school attendance. For not taking a vaccine for an activity-preventable disease. The media wants you to believe that "anti-vax" means never taking even one vaccine - or allowing your children to do so. And for some, this is accurate. For the most part, Americans choose vaccination for their children, sometimes asking to delay or spread out or skip this or that shot. We earned this Freedom back in 1776 when we got ourselves out from under the tyranny of a King. We fought as rag tag but determined men and women against the world dominating British Red Coats. And we won. Here we are, 243 years later. And we face a new King in the form of the United States Government and Pharma.

Re: Vaccination policy

Dear President Nelson, President Oaks, and President Eyring,

My name is Brett Wilcox. I am a lifelong member of the church, currently living in Sitka, Alaska with my family. Four years ago, I wrote a letter to President Monson and his counselors regarding the church’s position on vaccination (attached). (1)

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is well known for its emphasis on protecting the sanctity of the family. The Church is also known for its support of vaccination programs, as evidenced by public statements encouraging vaccination, vaccine requirements for prospective missionaries, and its participation in and funding of international vaccination initiatives.

By linking arms with the vaccine industry, the Church has literally linked arms with the arm of flesh. Nearly all modern vaccines are contaminated with DNA fragments from various animals and from aborted male and female fetuses. (2)

It seems highly unlikely that a loving God would intend to have fetuses harvested, processed, and injected back into the bodies of pregnant women, infants, toddlers, and children. And surely, God did not intend to have His children place their faith in a one-size-fits-all medical intervention based on a (secret) combination of human sacrifice and cannibalism.

Contrary to commonly accepted dogma, vaccines are dangerous. Vaccine researchers—fully aware of this fact—design “safety” studies to hide vaccine injury and death. Rather than compare new vaccines to an inert placebo, researchers compare them to another vaccine, vaccines, or toxic vaccine ingredients, such as aluminum, which scientists routinely use to induce autoimmunity in laboratory rats. The result of these experiments is known beforehand: at least 2% of vaccine recipients in both the test group and the “placebo” group will experience serious adverse events. Researchers write off the injuries as “New Medical Events” unrelated to the test vaccine or to the toxic “placebo.” I repeat for emphasis: Researchers intentionally injure, and sometimes kill, healthy children who would not have been injured or killed, had they been given a legitimate placebo. The FDA licenses new vaccines fully aware that industry “safety” tests are nothing more than scientific treachery. (3)

The ritual of vaccination is an assault on decency, individual health, families, and on the human race. The DNA in vaccines of both fetal and animal origin has the capacity to insert itself into the DNA of vaccine recipients. (4) Vaccines currently in development will intentionally and permanently alter human DNA and the human genome. (5) Consequently, we may be among the last of our species who are fully male, female, or even human.

 The Church cannot defend the sanctity of the family and simultaneously endorse a medical procedure that is altering the human genome, dissolving gender, decreasing fertility, diminishing mental capacity, and multiplying chronic disease and disability. (6) This is especially true in developing countries where people are chronically immunocompromised due to poverty, malnutrition, and unsanitary food, water, and living conditions. Children raised in these circumstances are more vulnerable to the toxins in vaccines, which would explain why researchers in Guinea-Bissau documented that the DTP vaccine multiplied childhood mortality by fivefold.

Common Sense in the Commonwealth of Kentucky's Governor's Home: Chicken Pox Once and Done

Gov Matt BevinNOTE: When Mia and Gianna were 3 and 2, the Varicella vaccine had just hit the market and I BEGGED their pediatrician for it.  He refused to administer it to the girls telling me it was too new, and it was better for them to catch the chicken pox and be done with it for life.  This was in 1998 or so. Not 1898. Governor Bevin gave his kids the gift of lifelong immunity from Varicella. The media will spin him into an anti-science monster who doesn't love his children.  Nonsense. Below is a take on the story from the AofA POV.

###

Kentucky, known for mint juleps, great bourbon, and the Kentucky Derby, has been in the news, and not just about March Madness.  It’s another kind of madness --- the horrendously, horrible treatment of those who believe in Vaccine Choice.

In separate areas of the state of Kentucky, two individuals are sharing their beliefs about vaccines, in the news.  One is a high school senior who is suing, along with his family, the local Dept of Health.  Check this out :

WALTON, Ky. —  

A Northern Kentucky family is suing their health department because of an issue with the chickenpox vaccine.

Bill Kunkel said his son Jerome, 18, is being discriminated against because of his religious beliefs regarding a vaccine for chickenpox.

Jerome is a student at Our Lady of the Sacred Heart/Assumption Academy in Walton, Kentucky.

“I don't believe in that vaccine at all and they are trying to push it on us,” Bill Kunkle said. They say the belief is derived from their Christianity.

The Health Department said the chickenpox vaccine is the best way to prevent becoming ill and spreading the varicella virus. They said it is very safe and prevents almost all cases of severe illness. Ensure all members of your household are up to date on all vaccinations.

Note - Nothing subliminal about that message from the family or the vaccine commercial from the Health Department.

Student Paper: Vaccinate by Choice, Not by Force

She is EXEMPT from having to declare a name here at Age of Autism. The author has tested in the top 1% of  her state for both reading and math. This student would not be allowed to go to school if vaccine exemption rights were to be revoked.

As a mother-to-be, the question of whether to vaccinate your new baby against deadly diseases, or take the risk of them getting sick looms over you. There is pressure from your doctor, your friends, and your family to do it, even though you have heard otherwise. Finally, you have made up your mind; you want to protect your child and everyone who they interact with. You vaccinate your newborn. 

Three years later, your fully-verbal, bright, and cheery toddler gets their MMR shot. You wouldn’t want them to get measles, mumps, or rubella, now would you?  You try to bear their shrieks as the doctor injects your squealing child. Twenty-four hours later, you notice something: your child is acting strangely. They don’t laugh or smile anymore. They won’t make eye contact. They don’t have an appetite. They have stopped talking.

What could it be? What could have caused your child to regress so dramatically, and suddenly? Then it hits you: it was the vaccine. How could you have done this to such an innocent child? Your child? You get a blood test done, the vaccine didn’t even immunize your child. It did more harm than good. You vow to never vaccinate them again.

Ten more years later and the state has the audacity to propose a bill that mandates vaccines. This isn’t right. You know that people should be able to choose what is right for their child.

This is a reality of many parents across the United States today. Legislation has been, and is currently being proposed to take away the choice around vaccinating their children. As you can imagine, taking away this choice has angered many parents across the nation. The concept of vaccines is based on that of natural immunity: when you get a disease, you won’t get it again because your body knows how to fight it. Vaccinations are injections that expose one’s immune system to a virus. This activates one’s immune system, creating a memory of that virus, but not actually getting them sick. Then, when the virus actually attacks, the body is theoretically immune to it.

Two point five percent of the United States’ children are exempt from one or more vaccines, and one percent of children across the country have never been vaccinated at all, but citizens, and governments alike seek to shrink this number.  Proponents of vaccine mandates argue that everyone should be vaccinated to protect the community as a whole, and that the benefit of the immunization outweighs the risk of the vaccine. While some people believe that vaccinations should be mandatory, people should actually have the right to make an informed decision about vaccinating their child because the theory of artificial herd immunity is fraudulent, the government shouldn’t have control over such personal choices, and vaccines are not indisputably safe.

Free Speech YouTubers Noticing Crack Down on Vaccination Topic

Happy to see that people are picking up on the unAmerican trend to deleting vaccine topics from social media. You don't have to be a vaccine safety advocate or an anti-vaxxer or even a full pro-vaxxer to know that crushing debate in not worthy of the USA. Thanks to Adriana Gamondes for finding this video for us.  I am not familiar with TruthStream media. I may not agree with some or even all of their topics, I haven't delved deep yet. I do think it's important to acknowledge when outsiders start noticing who they are not allowed to criticize.  From their YouTube channel:

Mel here. For the record, I had a totally different video I was working on, and Aaron has a large one he's been editing, but we both dropped everything to make this instead because it needed to be said. This is a much bigger issue beyond whether or not you are "pro" or "anti" vaccines. It's a larger situation about free speech in a society where the public square has gone digital, and major corporations, political leaders, and so-called scientific "experts" are going to start deciding what people are allowed to see, discuss, and know. If you don't share this one, it's probably going to get buried. Note — Just in case, our backup channel on Vimeo is here:


The Aspirin a Day Science is Unsettled and on St. Joseph's Day No Less!

St josephMy goodness. How many times have we been told, "The science is settled. Vaccines do not cause autism?" Yesterday, which happened to be the Italian feast of St. Joseph, news outlets reported that an aspirin a day is no longer recommended for the elderly.

From USA Today

Don't take an aspirin a day to prevent heart attacks and strokes: Doctors reverse recommendation

“Clinicians should be very selective in prescribing aspirin for people without known cardiovascular disease,” cardiologist Roger Blumenthal said in a statement. "It’s much more important to optimize lifestyle habits and control blood pressure [Pharma can sell you a prescription pill for that] and cholesterol [Pharma can sell you a prescription pill for that] as opposed to recommending aspirin. [That's stuff has been generic since Hector was a pup and we don't make any money from it so no, we can no longer recommend it.]


Yale Bailed! Expert Panel Reneges on Vaccine Mandate Debate with Robert Kennedy Jr

Dr bulldogThe Yale bulldogs are scaredy cats with neither bark nor bite.  The participants from Yale slated to debate vaccination topics this morning with Robert Kennedy Jr, cancelled.  Kim (I live here in CT about 65 miles from the Capital.)   Scroll down to see the panel by name. BOO-la BOO-la indeed.

Here is a message from Robert Kennedy about the cancellation and what it means.

"I flew to Hartford, Connecticut last night at the invitation of the Sen. Josh Elliott and the Connecticut State House’s Democratic leadership who are proposing to abolish Religious exemptions for vaccines. (Connecticut has among the highest vaccination rates; 97% With no threat to herd immunity, Pharma profits and medical authoritarianism are the impulses driving the legislation). Dems believed they had stacked the contest against me; alone I would debate five Yale Medical School Physicians and virology professors. The professors came with heavy vaccine industry pedigrees. Despite these 5-1 odds, I was confident I would easily dispatch them, the facts on vaccine safety argue themselves. For 15 years, Pharma has systematically pressured a long string of my scheduled opponents (Hotez, Offitt, etc) to cancel every one of dozens of agreed upon debates. Invariably they withdraw at the last minute as Pharma rallies its toadies to call them. I was looking forward to finally enjoying an honest and civil exchange with Yale’s vaccinology impresarios. “This gang,” I told myself, “will have too much pride to chicken out!” Wrong! I just got the word that all five Yale professors canceled at 3:00 a.m. Please tune to Children’s Health Defense for a live stream around 10:30 a.m. EDT. If they allow the live stream to go forward, I’m going to go give a seminar on vaccine science at the Connecticut State Capitol. Right now I’m thinking of how blatant, how anti-democratic and fundamentally anti-American the censorship has become. I’ll be thinking today of all the Moms who are silenced when they try to tell their stories. They can only win by silencing us." #phascism.

If Teen Consents to Vaccination without Parental Approval Who is Liable in Case of Injury

TeensUSA Today has an opinion piece titled, Doctor: Teens who want vaccines shouldn't need parental consent.

The doctor says he works with critically ill children.  Bless his heart. He may well see children with measles more seriously affected than their healthy peers. Could he document some of these cases and prove that he knew the children were not vaccinated? What was their outcome - as related strictly to the measles infection versus their pre-morbid diagnosis?

Vaccinations have zero product liability. You can not sue the administering doctor or nurse for an injury.  You can not sue the medical practice or the hospital. You can not sue the grocery store on Minute clinic. You can not sue the vaccine manufacturer for an injury.  The vast majority or lawyers, doctors and lay people do not know that there is a special government run vaccine "court" was created in 1986 to funnel through a minute number of injuries. To date, the court has paid over $3B, and vaccine injury, like rape, at least in the past, is vastly under-reported.

If a teen boy or girl gets a Gardasil vaccination because he or she wants to become sexually active, and suffers an adverse reaction like fainting, falling, paralysis, anaphylaxis, how are Mom or Dad to know? Or the emergency room that treats the teen?  Or the school where the child falls ill? This is similar territory to getting birth control or an abortion. Where to teen privacy rights and parental right to know meet or diverge. It's not an easy question. Most of us are pro-vaccine choice. The Anti-Vaxxer label is a slur meant to diminish us. If Johnny wants an MMR at 15, who protects him from the possible adverse affects?  How about at 18, still living under Mom and Dad's roof and on their health insurance until age 26?

###

How should doctors like me approach teens like Ethan Lindenberger, who asked to be vaccinated against his mother's wishes?

Should we refuse a teenager the right to protect himself from a preventable disease or respect the authority of the parents for raising their child as they see fit?

As a physician who cared for critically ill children for more than 30 years at Phoenix Children's Hospital in Arizona, I've taken care of several young children who were not vaccinated and who developed measles, leading to advanced medical care.

Despite parents seeing their child stricken with a preventable disease, they all stood their ground and still refused to vaccinate. There was no recourse on our part to change their mind or intervene. Parental values and their best interest regarding their children trumped the evidence of the outcome of their decisions.  Read more here.




Robert Kennedy Jr Hosts Press Conference in CT "Should Vaccines Be Mandated?"

CT health Choice Event
Please join Robert Kennedy Jr at the statehouse in Hartford, CT on Tuesday, March 19.

Josh Elliott wants to give CT residents the opportunity to plan their own death.  He also seeks to allow the incarcerated to vote to protect their American rights. Admirable. And yet in a twist of irony,  he Irony rustoleumseeks to control medical decisions whilst alive. He wants to remove the religious exemption to vaccination.  This means forced vaccination.  Disenfranchising Americans based on vaccination choice is acceptable?

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP)A Connecticut lawmaker who supports eliminating the religious exemption from vaccinations for public school students is holding an informational forum on the science behind vaccines.

Democratic Rep. Josh Elliott of Hamden says he’s concerned the “pseudo-science” fueling fear among a “vocal minority” about vaccine safety. He’s organized a forum Tuesday at the Legislative Office Building with experts, including professors from Yale University.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr., an environmental lawyer and president of Children’s Health Defense is also scheduled to participate on the panel. Kennedy is a vaccine skeptic and has testified in other states against legislation requiring vaccinations.

JUNE 22, 2012

Two former Merck & Co. Inc. (MRK) employees have sued the company in federal court alleging Merck overstated the effectiveness of a mumps vaccine for which the U.S. government paid hundreds of millions of dollars.

Merck--which stressed that none of these allegations relate to the safety of its product--said the lawsuit is "completely without merit", and that it plans to "vigorously defend itself." The Whitehouse Station, N.J., drug maker also noted that the U.S. Department of Justice has thus far declined to participate in the case after its own two-year probe.

#UsToo Open Letter to Washington State Legislators About SB5841 Removal of Vaccine Exemptions

Parental RightsNote: We are grateful that our readers, friends, colleagues are fervently fighting to protect our medical rights. Below is a letter we invite you to edit for your own purposes to explain why the removal of vaccine exemptions is to dangerous to our rights and akin to assault. Thank you to the author, who wishes to remain private at this time.

Dear __________,

I’m writing to ask you to vote NO on SB5841, the bill which seeks to remove philosophical exemptions for vaccinations.

In this day and age where everyone is hyper-aware of bullying, rape culture, the #metoo movement, and obtaining consent from both parties, I cannot believe that there are people who would try to force vaccinations on those who don’t want them.  In my mind, this equates to medical rape.  All the elements are there.

Rape: Rape is when someone uses force to penetrate another against their will.  The force can be physical, coercion or abuse of authority.  If SB5841 passes, many of us will be saying NO, we will try to get away from our assailant, but because of abuse of authority and coercion we will be medically penetrated anyway.

No Means No: We teach our daughters to say NO, because unlike phrases like “not right now” or “I’d rather not,” the word NO cannot be misconstrued as being anything other than what it is.  Taking away our right to philosophical exemptions is the same as taking away our ability to say NO.  It’s as simple as that.  Can you imagine a sexual assault situation where someone is repeatedly screaming NO, but it doesn’t matter because their mouth has been taped shut?  Passing SB5841 is taping our mouths shut.

Catcalling: SB5841 has been one giant catcall.  I’m walking down the street minding my own business, and SB5841 is gyrating its hips at me, whistling and telling me all the things it’s going to do to me and my family.  It’s going to molest us, puncture us, and inject us with fluid.  Not once, not twice, but 72 times, and we’re going to like it!  It’s going to be sooo good!

Blaming the victims: Most of the people speaking out against vaccines have first-hand experience of being vaccine injured.  My sons lost eye contact, executive function, and coordination skills.  One son had paralysis in his leg after a vaccine and a red hard bump the size of a baseball at the injection site.  This happened not once, but twice.  At the time we believed the doctor when she said it was a normal reaction.  All of our children suffered injuries and acquired autoimmune issues after vaccines that required years of therapy and interventions. Many others have suffered even greater damage: encephalopathy, autism, seizures and even death.  When people like me speak up to warn that vaccines, like any other drugs, have side effects (just look at the vaccine inserts!), we are labeled “ANTI-VAXXERS,” “ANTI-SCIENCE,” and “DISEASE SPREADERS.” Somehow, we have been made to look like the bad guys. We are not anti-vaxxers.  We are ex-vaxxers who were once pro-vaxxers.  Vaccines are no longer a good fit for us and we have stopped. That is all. No need to blame us or call us names.  We didn’t ask for this.

Silencing the victims: A few weeks ago approximately 2,000 parents drove to Olympia braving the threat of a snow storm to represent and be heard for the HB1638 hearing. None were given an opportunity to testify.  During the press conference that followed, only legislators in favor of HB1638 were in attendance and answering questions.  None of the parents of vaccine injured children were allowed in to the press conference.  Those are examples of passive silencing.  Others, however, don’t even try to hide that they’re silencing or censoring us. It’s insidious how Adam Schiff (who wrote Mark Zuckerberg a letter telling him to shut down vaccine websites), Peter Hotez (who wants to censor books and social media ), Richard Pan (who wants to pass legislation penalizing “speech criminals” online including personal texts and emails) and others who are pushing pro-pharma legislation in this country make no secret about wanting to silence those who stray from the party line that “VACCINES ARE SAFE AND EFFECTIVE, HAVE NO SIDE-EFFECTS AND A FULLY VACCINATED NATION IS A HEALTHY NATION.” Many of us believed that, had our children vaccinated, suffered through the side-effects, and now focus daily on their diminished health.  Are we not allowed to tell our stories?  Are we not allowed to warn others? Are we now second-class citizens who don’t even deserve the right to free speech?  We try to speak up, but we are silenced.  Those who push for vaccine mandates would have it so much easier if the victims of vaccine injury would keep their mouths shut and go away. It’s similar to when people don’t want to hear the stories from rape victims because they want to protect the star quarterback.

Tesla Uses Merck Whistleblower Punishment Playbook: "Destroy Them Where They Live"

Retro_vintage_kitsch_electricity_tesla_coil_sticker-rea9139d61b0a44fc916f8d93ca0c5b40_v9wf3_8byvr_512Note:  Here is a familiar story. A major corporation's (Tesla) bad dealings are exposed and the company seeks to kill the messenger. This reminded me of the Merck "destroy them where they live" email that targeted the doctors who were questioning the safety of Vioxx - long since removed from the market.  From a CBS report in 1999: '...Merck emails from 1999 showed company execs complaining about doctors who disliked using Vioxx. One email said:

We may need to seek them out and destroy them where they live ...

Just yesterday, a huge news story broke about wealthy celebrities buying their kids' way into pretigious colleges and Universities.  Parents paid hundreds of thousands, some millions  (!) to sneak their dumb kids into college.  They lied. They cheated. They STOLE a seat from worthy applicants with bribes.

Where is the level playing field in the USA?  Can the "little guy or gal" survive any longer? We're fighting for our lives to speak out on social media while major media demands we be silenced.  Amazon, YouTube, Pinterest - all ripping away free speech when it comes to vaccine safety.  There are many seeking to destroy us where and how we make a living.

From Bloomberg Business on 3/13/19: By the larger-than-life standards of Elon Musk, the story was far from a blockbuster. On June 4, 2018, Business Insider reported that Tesla Inc. was scrapping or reworking 40 percent of the raw materials at the Gigafactory, its huge battery plant in the Nevada desert. The article cited a source who figured the inefficiency had cost Musk’s electric car company $150 million, describing giant piles of scrap materials in the factory. Tesla denied the report, and a few hours later, the world moved on.

The world, that is, except Elon Musk. Although he wasn’t asked about the Business Insider story the following day at the company’s annual meeting, he stewed for weeks, dispatching a team of investigators to try to figure out who’d shared the information with the press.

Vexed by the Vaxxed: How Measles Is Smarter Than Your Average Bear

YogiYou will not hear this on the news but those who have been vaccinated, can get measles and also transmit it to others.  Bacteria and viruses are smart.  They have evolved for thousands of years and vaccination is not going to stop them from adapting and replicating .

Immunization is also making once-rare or nonexistent genetic variants of pathogens more prevalent, presumably because vaccine-primed antibodies can’t as easily recognize and attack shape-shifters that look different from vaccine strains. And vaccines being developed against some of the world’s wilier pathogens — malaria, HIV, anthrax — are based on strategies that could, according to evolutionary models and lab experiments, encourage pathogens to become even more dangerous.”

As we see the frenzy of measles blame on the “anti-vaxxers”, we need to explore some scientific research that shows a different scenario:

Measles Outbreak in a Highly Vaccinated Population — Israel, July–August 2017

This measles outbreak occurred in an adult population with high 2-dose measles vaccination coverage. The primary patient had documentation of receipt of 3 doses of measles-containing vaccine, one each at ages 1, 2, and 6 years, per the vaccination schedule in Ukraine. Although it is possible that the vaccination record contained an error, the high IgG avidity suggests secondary vaccine failure (2). All patients except one had high measles IgG avidity, which is an indicator of previous vaccination or previous infection. Because all the serum specimens (except that from the primary patient) were collected 2–3 days after the onset of symptoms, the high avidity IgG was assumed to be a result of patients’ previous vaccination.

Although outbreaks of measles among vaccinated populations have been reported worldwide (47), most outbreaks in Israel have occurred in unvaccinated or partially vaccinated populations (8,9). Measles transmission from a vaccinated person with documented secondary vaccine failure also has been described in New York City in 2011, including among vaccinated health care providers (4), and in the Marshall Islands (10). Waning of vaccine-induced immunity is a phenomenon that needs to be addressed.

Action Alert: CA Senator Schiff Attacking Internet Free Speech

Action alert2TAKE ACTION HERE!

From Autism Action Network:

Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA 28), the member of Congress who wrote to the heads of Google and Facebook calling for the censorship of “medically inaccurate information about vaccines (that) surface on the websites where many Americans get their information,” has reintroduced a House Resolution making the claim, that, “there is no credible evidence demonstrating that vaccines cause life-threatening or disabling diseases in healthy children or adults;” (a claim repeated in the letters to Google and Facebook.) Schiff’s House Resolution  (H. Res. 179),  “Recognizing the importance of vaccinations and immunizations in the United States” was introduced last Wednesday, the same day as the “Vaccines Save Lives” US Senate hearing.

Schiff is willfully ignorant of the most basic facts about vaccines and vaccine policy. Every package insert for every vaccine in America contains information about the possible injuries the Federal government admits could occur to healthy adults and children. Schiff  seems to be unaware of the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, the "vaccine court," that considers thousands of cases of vaccine injury every year and has paid out more than $4 billion in damages. One also has to wonder if Schiff is aware that the vaccine industry and pediatricians demanded, and received, complete liability protection from any injury caused by a vaccine?

Shut Out, Shut Up: The HELP Hearing

Hearing Hallway March 2019By Jena Dalpez

On Tuesday, March 5th, more than five hundred parents who traveled from across the country to be present at a senate hearing were shut out. The Senate HELP Committee hearing was titled Vaccines Save Lives: What Is Driving Preventable Disease Outbreaks? The parents who showed up had the answers to that question, but they were shut out. They were shut out of the hearing, shut out of testifying, shut out of having experts testify on their behalf, and they were shut out by the media covering the event.

Not a single word was mentioned by the Senators on the committee or the panel before them about the two main drivers of vaccine-targeted infectious outbreaks: vaccine failure and vaccine dangers.

Not a single word was mentioned about mumps breaking out in fully vaccinated high school and college students. Not a word was mentioned about the utter failure of the pertussis vaccine to prevent infection, prevent the spread of infection, or that it increases lifetime susceptibility to infection.

No mention that the recent measles clusters have remained in small religious communities who are comfortable with their children experiencing measles, who are glad for the acquired lifetime immunity, and all of whom are now recovering or are completely recovered. Parental rights

The truth was shut out.

This was occurring in the midst of a media and public health frenzy based on recent cases of measles in Washington State. The US House and Senate convened hearings to discuss mandating routine vaccination on the federal level and how to stop the spread of “misinformation” on social media. In addition, Representative Adam Schiff wrote a letter to the Chief Executive Officers of Google and Facebook calling on them to shutdown vaccine risk aware groups and postings on the company’s platforms including YouTube, Facebook and Instagram. He called for a modern-day book burning. In the days leading up to the Senate hearing, there was already evidence of a shift as people found it difficult to find previously available information missing from these sources and others.

A Witch Hunt Against Parents of Unvaccinated Children

Salem witchFrom the Alliance for Human Research Protection:

Measles Outbreaks: How a Witch Hunt* Against Parents of Unvaccinated Children Was Unleashed

We are witness to an orchestrated frenzy that has been revved-up by vaccine stakeholders – i.e., those who have a direct or indirect financial stake in vaccines– through the corporate / academic institutions that employ them. Their unified objective is to achieve maximum utilization of vaccines, and total compliance with vaccination schedules set by the government in collaboration with vaccine manufacturers.

Contrary to the barrage of “fake news” promulgated by government public health officials and the media to influence public opinion, the fact is, most childhood infectious disease “outbreaks” include both vaccinated and unvaccinated children. What’s more, when the infection has been tested, vaccine strain has often been identified as the cause of infection.

In 2015, a “measles outbreak” in California’s Disney Land garnered nationwide front page publicity and dire warnings by public health officials and vaccine “authorities”. They generated high public anxiety. This fearmongering led to the demonization of unvaccinated children, who were perceived as the spreaders of disease.

Never disclosed to the public, but known to CDC officials is the following evidence that has finally been published in the Journal of Clinical Microbiology (2017):

 “During the measles outbreak in California in 2015, a large number of suspected cases occurred in recent vaccinees. Of the 194 measles virus sequences obtained in the United States in 2015, 73 were identified as vaccine sequences (R. J. McNall, unpublished data).” [1]

Rebecca J. McNall, a co-author of the published report, is a CDC official in the Division of Viral Diseases, who had the data proving that the measles outbreak was in part caused by the vaccine. It is evidence of the vaccine’s failure to provide immunity.

But this crucial information has been concealed, and continues to be withheld from the public.  After all, how many have read the belated disclosure in the Journal of Microbiology?   Read more at AHRP.org.


Dr. Peter Hotez tells Mom: "You're functioning as useful idiots for the anti-vaccine..."

The esteemed Dr. Peter Hotez, father himself of a daughter with autism, referred to Mothers who are concerned about vaccine safety as "functioning as useful idiots."  Useful idiots is a political term I had never heard. It is not, as suspected, a compliment. It's a complete brush off and attempt to marginalize the females of the autism and vaccine safety/choice community.  Thank you to Ginger Taylor for the video clip.

In political jargon, a useful idiot is a derogatory term for a person perceived as a propagandist for a cause whose goals they are not fully aware of, and who is used cynically by the leaders of the cause.[1][2] The term was originally used during the Cold War to describe non-communists regarded as susceptible to communist propaganda and manipulation.[1] The term has often been attributed to Vladimir Lenin, but this attribution is unsubstantiated.[3][4]

Dr. Hotez wrote a memoir titled "Vaccines Did Not Cause Rachel's Autism." As a memoirist myself, I find that title demeaning to his daughter. Is that the most important aspect of her life - to exonerate vaccines? JB HAndley published a book called How To End The Autism Epidemic just a few weeks before Dr. Hotez's book debuted last Fall. Take a peek at the sales rankings as of today in the Amazon screen shots below. You may find them.... useful.

James Lyons-Weiler on the New MMR/Autism Study From Denmark

James Lyons WeilerAoA links to Lyons-Weiler's review of the new paper by Hviid:"

An Autopsy on Hviid et al. 2019’s MMR/Vaccine Science-Like Activities

JUST IN TIME to be sandwiched between two one-sided Senate Hearings, a new cohort study by Hviid et al. has all of the hallmarks of a completely well-done study.  Well done as in overcooked.  Here is my initial assessment.

The burnt ends on this brisket are obvious.  Just like all the past studies on the MMR/autism question, the study focuses on one vaccine.  This is a problem because the variable they call “genetic risk” (having an older sibling), which is the most significant variable, is confounded with health user bias (there is no control over vaccine cessation).  It’s an important variable, but genetic risk of what?  Of autism?  Or of autism following vaccination?  It’s impossible to tell because the study never tests a VACCINE x FAMILY HISTORY interaction term.  Or any other interaction term that includes vaccines.

Were it not such an imporant question for which so much “science-like activities” have occurred, we could just shrug our shoulders, one could argue that defining the data analysis strategy is just about how one like to season their meat.  But there is real evidence Hviid (who did the data analysis) appears to be up real data cookery here.

(1) The smoking gun is the study-wide autism rate of 0.9-1%.  The rate of ASD in Denmark is 1.65%.  Where are the missing cases of ASD?  Given past allegations of this group’s malfeasance and fraud, the rest of the study cannot be accepted based on this disparity alone: the study group is not representative of the population being studied.....(continue reading at JamesLyonsWeiler.com)


Senate HELP Hearing Was Five White Men in the Seats and 500 Women in the Halls.

Hearing Hallway March 2019
No one was allowed into the HELP Hearing. They clogged the halls.

On Tuesday, five white men met to discuss the vaccination status of a nation of 327,000,000 men, women and children of every race, creed and color. They met to discuss removing medical choice by imposing federal vaccine mandates.  We had hoped one of the white men would be Robert Kennedy, Jr to balance if not the demographics, then to balance out the position of 100% pro-vaccine mandates. To discuss why exemptions are necessary in a free nation where each citizen has medical rights and a unique biological status. 

Watch the hearing here.

More than 500 (majority) women  moved heaven and earth to get to Washington, DC to watch the hearing. These are women with vaccine injured children, most of whom have autism. It takes an act of Congress (ha ha) for us to leave the house for any sort of business trip. And there they were. BARRED from entering the open seats in the hearing room.

"Jane Crow" laws in action.  Back of the hall, ladies. The new Green Book will be where an un- or not fully vaccinated child can attend school, or day care or where parents can work.

We scare the white men in the hearing seats. Even the youngest man there, an 18 year old who defamed his own Mother and took his Percy Weasley moment in front of the cameras. Imagine a hearing on abortion where women are not allowed to participate. Imagine a hearing on breast cancer where women are not allowed to have a voice. This hearing affects MOTHERS - because we take our kids to the pediatrician as a rule. WE stay home on sick days. WE call early intervention when our toddler stops talking. Women. And yes, most of us are white, by the demographics of the USA. MeToo has nothing for us. We and our children will be pillaged for pharma gain at the whim of the men. With a nation cheering the event. 

We are lighthouses. And they are tearing us down as they head for the rocks.  Kim



Chief Medical Officer to the British Government Defends MMR Safety: Autism Up by 15 Times And Still No Explanation

image from upload.wikimedia.orgby John Stone

Since November I have been writing, on and and off about my correspondence with Dame Sally Davies, the out going Chief Medical Officer of England, and to the British Government. This correspondence is now published under Freedom of Information (barring my address and telephone number). It began when I asked Dame Sally to support her comment on the BBC about MMR "It's a a safe vaccine - we know that". 

Recently, I made this list of points which I believe emerged from the exchange:

-          ASD in schools is at least 15 times the level of 25 years ago

-          1.74% of all schoolchildren in the recent Northern Ireland census (the most complete data we have at the present time) had a severe/complex level of ASD disablement (education Stage 5)

-          The overall rate is 2.9% for the province but 4.7% for Belfast

-          Epidemiologists trying to explain the rise in ASD at the beginning of the millennium were still only talking about a rate of 0.2%

-          1999 National Statistics for schools’ mental health showed a rate of 0.2% for ASD/PDD for those born between 1984 and 88 but by the 2004 survey the overall rate was 1%

-          The rate appears to have risen 5 times during the years following the introduction of MMR and 3 times since, and the majority of cases are not fringe diagnoses

-          There is still no robust or adequate evidence of a large ASD population over the age of 35 and Dame Sally was unable to cite any

-          Our schools, and their finances, are breaking down under the burden of disablement, with ASD being frequently mentioned as the major cause

-          The social cost of ASD, once almost invisible, is set to outstrip old-age in the near future and is only likely to keep rising

-          There is no robust or adequate evidence base for MMR safety: the six studies in the single review cited by Dame Sally were flawed and inadequate

-          The first of these studies was only published 14 years after the products were introduced in the UK, and Dame Sally failed to cite any pre-marketing data, so the question also arises what the evidence base was for safety before they were introduced?

-          The MHRA yellow card scheme would be incapable picking up long term neurological effects of vaccination

-          The government has no coherent or convincing explanation of these events which are set to engulf everybody

A pdf of the correspondence can be read and downloaded here.

The Danes To the Rescue of American Pharma Again!

Cavalry-chargeThis post ran on March 7, 2009. Almost nine years to the day from yesterday's hearing on measles, MMR and mandates. Seems the Danes have been called upon yet again to rescue Merck and the American vaccine policy. MMR and Autism - Denmark 2019 Poul Thorsen is alive and well in Europe - and still considered a fugitive from American justice. Such as it is in 2019.

Autism action network This startling story, as yet unseen in the mainstream media, is from our friends at The Autism Action Network.

Danish Scientist Absconds with $2 million, Poul Thorsen "Proved" Vaccines Don't Cause Autism

A Danish scientist who was a key researcher in two studies that purport to show that mercury used in vaccines and the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine do not cause autism is believed to have used forged documents to steal $2 million from Aarhus University in Denmark according to reports in the Copenenhagen Post Online and a statement from Aarhus University.
 
Poul Thorsen, MD PhD, headed up a research unit at Aarhus University that was hired by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to prepare a series of studies that would exonerate thimerosal, a mercury-based preservative and adjuvant used in vaccines, and the MMR vaccine from any role in causing autism. The veracity of the two studies he co-authored is now in doubt.
 
These studies formed the foundation for the conclusions of several Institute of Medicine reports that claimed that it was highly unlikely that thimerosal or MMR were implicated in autism.
 
In a statement Aarhus University officials said that believe Thorsen forged documents supposedly from the CDC to obtain the release of $2 million from the University. Thorsen resigned abruptly in March 2009 and left Denmark. Since then Thorsen has held several jobs in the US, first at Emory University in Atlanta and then at Drexel University in Philadelphia. Documents show that as late as January 22, 2009. Thorsen was employed at Drexel. Any reference to Poulsen has now been deleted from the Drexel website.
 
Investigations also revealed that while employed full-time for the University of Aarhus in Denmark, Thorsen simultaneously held a fulltime position at Emory University in Atlanta, and drew salaries from both Universities despite a contract with Aarhus forbidding outside employment. According to the statement from Aarhus University.
 
Autism advocacy groups have published extensive analyses on Thorsen's studies and found many problems in methods, assumptions and conclusions that are supported by the data. And Thorsen is the lynchpin in the series of studies used to dismiss concerns about thimerosal and MMR causing autism.

Hey there Julia, do you know anything about anything?

image from i.guim.co.ukby John Stone

The Guardian has been attacking charitable donations made to Age of Autism through the Amazon. Julia Carrie Wong, the journalist, seems to think she knows something about it.

"Age of Autism, for example, styles itself as the “daily web newspaper of the autism epidemic”. The site publishes a steady stream of content emphasizing the dangers of vaccination and promoting the discredited idea that autism is caused by “excessive vaccinations”. "

Well, Julia, perhaps you ought to take note that it was not Andrew Wakefield that said vaccines cause autism, it was the US government. Following the Hannah Poling award in 2008 Julie Gerberding, at the time Director for the centers for Disease Control, told Sanjay Gupta on CNN:

"Now, we all know that vaccines can occasionally cause fevers in kids. So if a child was immunized, got a fever, had other complications from the vaccines. And if you’re predisposed with the mitochondrial disorder, it can certainly set off some damage. Some of the symptoms can be symptoms that have characteristics of autism."

On separate occasions the Health and Human Services Health Resources and Services Administration told journalists Sharyl Atkisson and David Kirby:

"The government has never compensated, nor has it ever been ordered to compensate, any case based on a determination that autism was actually caused by vaccines. We have compensated cases in which children exhibited an encephalopathy, or general brain disease. Encephalopathy may be accompanied by a medical progression of an array of symptoms including autistic behavior, autism, or seizures."

But while autism spins out of control and is now approaching unsustainable 3% of children in the UK, and the cost of autism to the community is beginning to outstrip that of old age it becomes ever more difficult to get any serious or sensible answers out of our health officials. I recently had an  exchange with the outgoing government Chief Medical Officer, Dame Sally Davis, asking her what the evidence base for MMR safety was and she could not cite anything more convincing than the new paper from the Danish State Serum Institute: a review of six weak and flawed papers the first of which was published 14 years after the MMR was added the schedule in the UK. She was unable to mention any pre-marketing studies, or studies against placebo - it was a very poor answer. The full correspondence has now been published under freedom of information.The new paper like three of the six papers in the review, shows a protective effect against autism,indicative of bias. It sets the autism rate at 1% when in the UK is near three times higher. It is hopelessly conflicted with vaccine industry and CDC attachments, just as the Guardian is.

So, Julia, what do you think your opinion is really worth?

Letter to Senator Lisa Murkowski Regarding HELP Hearing “Vaccines Save Lives”

Lisa+murkowski+JPGNote: Thank you to Brett Wilcox for permission to excerpt his letter to Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski following last week's hearing (rubber stamp) on vaccination. Please bookmark his blog at Running the Country.  Unlike so many other citizens advocating for a safe, GMO and Monsanto glyphosate free food supply, Brett also sees the parallel within the vaccine safety community.  Care about what we put into our bodies can not exclude vaccination.

###

 The letter:

February 28, 2019

Senator Lisa Murkowski
522 Hart Senate Office Building
Washington, DC 20510

Re: HELP Hearing, “Vaccines Save Lives”

Dear Senator Murkowski,

My name is Brett Wilcox. My family and I live in Sitka. In July, 2014, my 15-year old son, David, and I completed our 6 month, 3,000 mile run across the USA advocating for a GMO Free USA. My wife, Kris, and 13-year old daughter, Olivia, David and I had the privilege of meeting with you in your Washington DC office after our run.

Since that time, I have invested thousands of hours into the study of vaccine industry corruption. In 2016, I authored the book JABBED: How the Vaccine Industry, Medical Establishment, and Government Stick It to You and Your Family. In 2018, Skyhorse Publishing published an updated edition in hardcover.

As a member of the U.S. Senate Committee on Health, Education Labor & Pensions, you will participate in a hearing scheduled on March 5th titled Vaccines Save Lives: What Is Driving Preventable Disease Outbreaks?

You and your colleagues will be subjected to a barrage of propaganda created by the financially driven vaccine industry. Their goal, as it has always been, is to increase profit, not health. And they accomplish that goal by spreading one sided and flat out wrong information about their liability-free products.

Vaccine industry architects are not afraid of the measles, they are not afraid of losing herd immunity, and they are not primarily interested in protecting immunocompromised people. They are, however, afraid of Constitutionally protected free speech, and they’re afraid of the growing vaccine informed public. It is well known that better educated people vaccinate less. Why? Because they learn the truth about the vaccine industry, and they learn the truth about vaccines.

The vaccine industry is afraid of the truth. Their only defense against the truth is lies. Please refer to the following facts to counter industry lies:

Fact #1. Vaccines are dangerous

Under federal law, vaccines are legally classified by Congress itself as “unavoidably UNSAFE products.” [1] That’s because there is nothing safe about injecting children, pregnant women, or elderly people with cell and DNA fragments from aborted male and female fetuses, human serum albumin, fetal bovine serum, monkey and canine kidney proteins, egg protein, chick embryo cells and fibroblasts, milk-derived raw materials, aluminum, mercury, formaldehyde, sodium chloride, neomycin, and polysorbate 80. [2]

Newer vaccines also include genetically modified ingredients and next generation vaccines are intended to permanently alter human DNA and the human genome. [3] [4]

As of November, 2018, the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program has paid out more than $4 billion for vaccine-related injuries and deaths. [5]

Fact #2. Reduction in infectious disease does not equal improved health

While there is some evidence that vaccines do in fact provide at least a temporary reduction in targeted diseases, there is also a growing body of evidence that vaccines are the primary cause of a host of chronic diseases. [6] [7]

Researchers in Africa found a lower incidence of targeted diseases following the administration of the DTP vaccine. They also found that DTP recipients died at 5 times the rate of their unvaccinated peers from non-vaccine-targeted illnesses. [8]

In a paper published in February 2019, one of the world’s leading authorities on the DTaP vaccine, James D. Cherry, MD, writes, “Because of linked-epitope suppression, all children who were primed by DTaP vaccines will be more susceptible to pertussis throughout their lifetimes, and there is no easy way to decrease this increased lifetime susceptibility.” [9]

The incidence of chronic disease has grown exponentially both in the US and abroad concurrent with the increase in the liability-free vaccination schedule. In 1976, 1 US child in 30 was learning disabled. In 2013, 1 US child in 6 was learning disabled. [10] The cost of special education is threatening to bankrupt some countries. [11]

It would be foolish to pin the epidemic of sick and disabled children entirely on vaccines. It would be far more foolish, however, to ignore the obvious connection.

Thus we see that the bumper sticker slogan “Vaccines are safe and effective” is a lie and any “expert” who makes such a claim while under oath is committing perjury.

Read the full letter here.

... Conclusion

Vaccine zealots are losing control at the state level. Of the more than 100 vaccine-related bills currently filed across the USA, nearly half support meaningful informed consent, increased parental rights, and stronger exemptions. This is happening because vaccine informed people no longer tolerate industry lies, tyranny, and government overreach. We no longer tolerate the unholy collusion of Pharma and State. And we will not submit to the proposed mandatory adult liability-free vaccine schedule.

The American people have never needed protection from the measles. We do, however, need ethical and informed elected officials to protect their constituents from the increasingly rapacious pharmaceutical industry and from their mandated, liability-free vaccines.

Senator Murkowski, you’ve got truth and a growing army of vaccine-informed people on your side. Together we will reclaim our sovereignty over our bodies, our health, our children, and our government. We trust that you will do everything within your power to support us in this critical endeavor.


Censorship is Here. Vaxxed, Removed from Amazon Prime Streaming, Ranked #1 in Category

Bury Us Age of AutismVaxxed has been removed from Amazon's Prime streaming service. The DVD remains available and is ranked Number 1 in the entire category, even beating out... Mr. Rogers and RBG. See screen photos below.  American business is now fully embracing censorship of the vaccine safety topic. The efforts of producers like Del Bigtree, which have hardly been lucrative, these films are not award winning Hollywood fairytales, and are being treated like snuff films.  This behavior is more becoming of North Korea than any nation in North America. Let alone the USA.

Following a CNN business report, Anti-vaccine movies disappear from Amazon after CNN Business report.

New York (CNN Business)Amazon has apparently started removing anti-vaccine documentaries from its Amazon Prime Video streaming service. The move came days after a CNN Business report highlighted the anti-vaccine comment available on the site, and hours after Rep. Adam Schiff wrote an open letter to Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, saying he is concerned "that Amazon is surfacing and recommending" anti-vaccination books and movies.

Anti-vaccine movies that were previously available free for Prime subscribers, like "We Don't Vaccinate!," "Shoot 'Em Up: The Truth About Vaccines," and "Vaxxed: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe," are now "currently unavailable."
BuzzFeed News was first to report that "Vaxxed" was no longer available. Amazon did not respond to questions about why the films are no longer available on Prime Video.

18 Year Old Ethan Lindenberger Assisted by Every Child by Two at Measles Hearings

Ethan Lindenberger Deleted
Measles theatre continues to tap dance as we pull back the curtain on the HELP hearings on Tuesday.   JB Handley Wrote about Amy Pisani's group Every Child By Two - ECBT - 8 years ago.  (See the post below.) Regarding the Itinerary shot, perhaps it explains how this random American boy who feared that he was not vaccinated per the CDC schedule took it upon himself to get vaccinated at age 18 - as is his right as an American adult garnered an invitation to a United States HELP Full Committee Hearing Vaccines Save Lives: What Is Driving Preventable Disease Outbreaks

The cast:

Ethan Lindenberger, an 18 year old high school student from Ohio, is testifying at Senate HELP committee hearing Tuesday March 5th on instituting a federal mandate for vaccination. Robert Kennedy Jr. is not allowed to present at this hearing. Robert. Kennedy. Jr. 

Amy Pisani- "Every Child by Two" represents a pharma funded shill "non profit". Pharma puppet and profiteer Paul Offit is on the board and funding is provided by all the top vaccine manufacturers including- Merck, GlaxoSmithKline, Sanofi Pasteur Seqirus and Novavax. They receive around $1,000,000 in funding annually and their 990s don't break it out. You will see they redact their funding amounts so you can't tell how much is given. See link below for their list of funders.

17 years ago, in 1991, the DTP Vaccine was under fire for the high rate of autism, brain injury and death it was causing in children. Lawsuits were mounting. In fact, DTP was why Congress created the 1986 Vaccine Injury Compensation Program in the first place. As Barbara Loe Fisher, co-author of A Shot In the Dark, a book chronicling the problems with DPT, said, "it is important to note that the vast majority of vaccine injury awards in the VICP have been for children suffering DPT vaccine brain injuries and deaths…of all the vaccines which have been routinely used by children in the past century, the brain damaging effects of the pertussis (whooping cough) portion of DPT vaccine is among the most well documented in the scientific literature."

Adam Schiff asks Amazon to Censor Books About Vaccination

CensorshipThe latest call for censorship of the vaccine topic is targeting Amazon, which sells books. Lots of books. MY BOOKS. There are books on Amazon that I do not ever want to read on topics I find disgusting, distasteful and even dangerous. I do not want those books censored. I can choose NOT to buy those books,. Censorship of a topic is unAmerican in the extreme.  Censorship is the tool of despots and dictators who fear what Schoolhouse Rock taught me in the 1970s. Knowledge is power. Knowledge drives consumer choices.

Do you know how  many DIET books are on Amazon? Over 60,000. They are often best sellers, yet Americans are in an obesity epidemic. I wrote a book, a memoir, with a chapter on vaccination. My best friends in the world know that I have vaccine injured children. They have met them. They love them. They read my book. They vaccinated their children with all the vaccines I said were a big NO for me. People read and make their own decisions. 

Adam Schiff is from California, by the way. We're also learning that many vaccine related movies have been pulled from Amazon Prime.  Can you heel the heels stomping behind you?

Influential Democrat asks Amazon to explain why it promotes vaccine misinformation

‘Every online platform, including Amazon, must act responsibly.’

Congressman Adam Schiff is putting pressure on Amazon to curb the spread of vaccine misinformation in its online store. Misinformation around vaccines — like the debunked myth that it causes autism — has led to some children in the United States not getting vaccinated, and is seen by experts as a ‘major contributor’ to recent measles outbreaks.

Schiff’s letter to Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos follows two others letters Schiff sent to Google head Sundar Pichai and Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg. In all three, Schiff criticized the platforms for serving up anti-vaccine propaganda where people look for information about vaccines. He also criticized Amazon for accepting paid advertising for anti-vaccine media. “Every online platform, including Amazon, must act responsibly and ensure that they do not contribute to this growing public-health catastrophe,” Schiff wrote.

The letter references a recent report from CNN that revealed that the vast majority of top search results for “vaccine” on Amazon provide anti-vaccination misinformation. CNN also reported that Amazon accepts paid advertisements for promoting anti-vaccine media. Right at the top of the “vaccine” search results is an ad for the free Kindle e-book Vaccines on Trial that fear-mongers about the safety and efficacy of vaccines. (To be fair, there’s also an ad for the $259.19 Kindle edition of the massive, authoritative, evidence-based textbook Plotkin’s Vaccines.)  Read more here at THE VERGE.
