The Criminalization of Dissent

Self Defense AdAn important read, thanks to Laura Hayes for the heads up:  The Criminalization of Dissent by CJ Hopkins

One of the hallmarks of totalitarian systems is the criminalization of dissent. Not just the stigmatization of dissent or the demonization of dissent, but the formal criminalization of dissent, and any other type of opposition to the official ideology of the totalitarian system. Global capitalism has been inching its way toward this step for quite some time, and now, apparently, it is ready to take it.

Germany has been leading the way. For over a year now, anyone questioning or protesting the “Covid emergency measures” or the official Covid-19 narrative has been demonized by the government and the media, and, sadly, but not completely unexpectedly, the majority of the German public. And now such dissent is officially “extremism.”

Yes, that’s right, in “New Normal” Germany, if you dissent from the official state ideology, you are now officially a dangerous “extremist.” The German Intelligence agency (the “BfV”) has even invented a new category of “extremists” in order to allow themselves to legally monitor anyone suspected of being “anti-democratic and/or delegitimizing the state in a way that endangers security,” like … you know, non-violently protesting, or speaking out against, or criticizing, or satirizing, the so-called “New Normal.”

Naturally, I’m a little worried, as I have engaged in most of these “extremist” activities. My thoughtcrimes are just sitting there on the Internet waiting to be scrutinized by the BfV. They’re probably Google-translating this column right now, compiling a list of all the people reading it, and their Facebook friends and Twitter followers, and professional associates, and family members, and anyone any of the aforementioned people have potentially met with, or casually mentioned, who might have engaged in similar thoughtcrimes.

You probably think I’m joking, don’t you? I’m not joking. Not even slightly.  Read more here. While you can.

My stars and garters, could we be on someone's radar?  Little old us? Pshaw... 

Is Russia’s Covid vaccine anything more than a political weapon? Observers say the Sputnik V jab is aimed more at sowing political division than fighting coronavirus

It seems The Guardian UK may have picked up on our observation that the Sputnik V from Russia has a Twitter account that is basically used for political bragging rights. Russia's Sputnik V On Twitter: I Must Break You

How this surprises anyone, that Vladimir Putin's nation would puff out its chest and declare superiority, is beyond us.

Hitting back via its official Sputnik V Twitter account, Russia has denied the vaccine is a political tool, or that safety or production capacity are potential issues. “Politicisation of vaccines is unethical and costing lives,” read a typical recent tweet. “Sputnik is undoubtedly one of the best vaccines in the world,” said another.

Meanwhile, "back at the ranch," Americans are being "deplatformed" (a ridiculous new word brought to you by Google, Facebook and others) for speaking out on vaccination and medical rights and safety while this punk of a Vaccine is tripping about the Internet without a care.

I was instantly reminded of an old advertising jingle for Ken-L-Ration canned dog food. My dog's better 'cuz he eats Ken0L-Ration.

April Never Ends


April never ends for us. It begins with Fool's Day, ends with a May Day that we will holler until the day we die.  You won't hear about autism in the news any longer. You won't hear about autism in many places these days. The clarion call for vaccination choice and safety that we set forth decades ago still exists though.  Many of us are here  because we helped light that torch, hoping to shed insight into the dark stories of how our kids were harmed. We had gumption. We sacrificed reputations. Careers. We took slings and arrows for years and years. Some of our children are adults now. Still needing our love, our care, our blood, sweat and oh yes our tears.

We are still in The Age of Autism. Please don't forget that.

Thank you the National Autism Association for a simple, powerful message. As the nation takes a hard look at both policing and policy, we must never forget that people on the spectrum, particularly adults males, are at risk of danger because of their diagnosis.   Please copy and share.  Thank you.

Florida Academy Bucks the Education Trend

And now forIn Connecticut, home to Age of Autism, legislators just removed the Religious Exemption. Our local school district was jabbed with the J&J brand a few weeks ago, and you'd have thought that the staffers were about to drink from the fountain of youth, such was the giddy joy. With precious little thought to side effects or long term effects. One private school in Florida has really bucked the trend of educators' complete obeisance to any and all vaccination for the students and the staff. Of course, they are being pilloried in the media.  Schools that have put caution ahead of common sense with masks, distance, in person learning, have taken the vaccines as if mother's milk. Which might be tainted post vax.


From Anne Dachel

Apr 27, 2021, Local 10 News, Miami, FL: Miami private school warns staff about taking COVID-19 vaccine, threatening to fire anyone who does

A South Florida private school is making headlines for its vaccine policy, advising teachers not to get their shots.

There has been a firestorm of controversy over an email that went out to faculty and staff at the exclusive Miami private school Centner Academy, warning staff against taking any of the COVID-19 vaccines, saying the school will no longer employ anyone who has received a shot.

Centner Academy has campuses in the Design District and Edgewater.

It’s very pricey, with tuition starting at nearly $25,000 a year for Pre-K and elementary school students.

Co-founder Leila Centner sent an email to parents on Monday, laying out the school’s policy on vaccines, alleging, without citing any scientific evidence, that vaccinated persons may be transmitting something from their bodies that could harm others, impacting fertility and the reproductive systems of women and also the development of children.

FIU Infectious Disease Expert Dr. Aileen Marty called the school’s moves reckless.

“This is completely irresponsible,” she said. “It is spreading rumors about something that is completely unfounded. There is absolutely no basis in fact in any of the allegations that are made against the vaccine there.

“It’s just frightening that such a high level of misinformation is going out from someone who runs a school. It’s terrible.”

Russia's Sputnik V On Twitter: I Must Break You

73EA6701-48FE-4007-9C82-27A1A8B8E626Russia's Covid vaccine called Sputnik V has its own Twitter page. Verified, no less. And it's trash talking the competition like Drago to Rocky, calling itself the safest and pointing out the injuries with other vaccines. I guess it's OK for Twitter, an American company, to allow a Russian vaccine to call out the American pharma products, but not Americans themselves. We're now following Sputnik V on Twitter, and had to respond to its Tweet claiming safety superiority. It's like the Pepsi Challenge meets Russian Roulette.

Meanwhile, today, in the HQ state of Age of Autism, Connecticut, 8000+ children face expulsion from school as the Religious Exemption is likely to be removed, despite a rally today with.... many of the folks who've been booted from the likes of Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.  Please send good thoughts to everyone speaking, rallying and telling legislators that our children, our healthy, beautiful kids, have every right to attend school.

Photos From India Covid Deaths Match Footage from 2020 Gas Catastrophe

India Covid death purple

Recycling is an important way to save the planet.  Gaslight casts such a warm glow even middle aged women feel youthful.

Advocate with the initial EI noticed yesterday that the photos of the COVID deaths in the New York Post in India NY Post COVID Swallowing India  seemed to match the footage from the gas explosion in India a year ago. Take a look. 

India gas leak purple

Same clothing on the victims. An innocent mis-usage of video in the never ending hurry to get a story to "press?" Or gaslighting in the extreme to fuel fear and compliance. The extreme right often claims that our US mass shootings use "crisis actors" to play the victims.  Here we might have a real crisis victims being used as actors.

How Do You Mend A Broken Heart

Mia Heart FrontAs we approach the final days of what used to be an actively covered media month, it seems autism has been displaced. Not just by COVID, which has overtaken every conversation like the drunk Uncle at Thanksgiving. An internationally known adult on the spectrum lamented that for the first time, there wasn't a single speaking engagement during the month. I've seen the same thing. I used to speak once or twice a year as keynote and write for many publications. Often these were good paying gigs. Poof!  Autism is no longer on the radar. I think it's been replaced with kids' transgender issues. And so it goes.

At AofA, we try to tie current events directly to our lives within the world of autism. Sometimes, the lyrics write themselves. The Bee Gee's niece passed away in Las Vegas at age 56. Her Mother says she was healthy. She had a heart attack, and Mom asks if the Pfizer vaccine caused her death. She's asking the question so many of us have uttered for a very long time: How do you mend a broken heart?

Niece of Bee Gees singer Barry Gibb is found dead of a suspected heart attack days after receiving her second Pfizer vaccine

Bernice Gibb Rhoades, 56, died of a suspected heart attack last Thursday
Her husband Chino found her unconscious in bed at her home in Las Vegas
It is the latest tragedy to his the Bee Gees, who had a string of number one hits
Beri's mother Lesley Evans, 76, paid tribute to her 'beloved girl' today Mia Heart Back

By Claudia Joseph for MailOnline

The Niece of Bee Gees singer Barry Gibb has been found dead with her dog by her side as her family pay tribute to their 'beloved girl' and worry they will not be able to give her a fitting send off because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Bernice Gibb Rhoades, 56, known to friends and family as Beri, was found unconscious in bed at her home in Las Vegas by her husband Chino on Thursday, April 15.

Beri's family have paid tribute after she died of a suspected heart attack days after receiving her second dose of the Pfizer coronavirus vaccine

I can think of younger days when living for my life

I could never see tomorrow
But I was never told about the sorrows

In Memoriam: Katie Weisman

WeepA sad announcement from John Gilmore of Autism Action Network on Facebook last night:


RIP Katie Weisman. We have lost a wonderful friend, a great spirit and a ferocious warrior.

It is with a very heavy heart I let you all know that our Katie passed just before midnight last night. Katie fought her illness fearlessly, as she did with every obstacle that stood in her way. She did it with grace but with passion. She suffered tremendously yet never complained. This is the only way Katie knew how to live her life.

Katie was blessed with her wonderful husband, Doug, her amazing mom, dad, brother, brother-in-law and sister-in-law. But, despite only being given 5 years, Katie's heart kept beating a few years longer for the three incredible loves of her life, her beautiful sons, Nick, Alex and Don.

Katie meant so much to all of us, touching each of us in her own unique way. She was nothing short of exceptional when it came to advocating for not only her sons, but endless children and young adults on the autism spectrum. She single-handedly changed the lives of families all over in the most profound way. Katie was the embodiment of someone making lemonade out of lemons and allowed families to look at autism as a different and wonderful way to approach life, not as something tragic.

Katie was passionate about her work with the incredible Children's Health Defense and fought endlessly for vaccine safety and the vaccine injured. She was an active member of our community, especially within the Bedford Central School District, Special Education Parent Teacher Association (SEPTO) and Bedford Autism Spectrum Support (BASS). She loved her Mount Kisco and took great pride in being a part of the Beautification Committee.

The list of Katie's achievements are endless.

CT One Giant Step Closer to Losing Religious Exemption

Health choice 4 action CT
CT HB6423 is moving to the Senate for a vote. Health Choice 4 CT has created this easy to understand analysis of next steps for families. This is a nightmare scenario where children will be "un-enrolled" which is a euphemism for expelled. Healthy children will not be allowed to attend school, like pariahs. America. 2021. A time when race relations and equity are top line news. And here, children of all races, creeds and colors will face discrimination and recrimination not because of the color of their skin, but because of the content (or lack) of their vaccines. No matter what CDC adds to the pediatric list, including COVID, it will be an all or nothing situation. The Nutmeg state has gone nuts.
  1. The bill that passed through the House yesterday on 4/19/2021 includes grandfathering from k-12. Your child must be enrolled in school at PASSAGE. Passage means when the governor signs this into law. If your child is eligible to enroll in kindergarten for September 2021, You need to have a religious exemption on file and enroll them RIGHT NOW before this bill gets signed into law by the governor. You must re-enroll your home schooled kids right now, in order for them to be grandfathered for the duration of their education. The exemption will follow them throughout districts in the state if you change schools or towns.

  2. If your child is in daycare or preschool, you will have until September 2022 To make sure your child is completely caught up on ALL of their immunizations, or submit a catch up letter from your doctor that you are in process of getting that done. There will be no options of private school, private daycare, or private pre-k after September 2022.

In Memoriam: F. Edward Yazbak, MD

FouJohn Stone wrote a tribute to Age of Autism contributor F. Edward Yazbak, following his death on Cape Cod in Massachusetts at age 89. In addition to sharing his writing for the blog, Dr. Yazbak used to drop us an email from time to time, and I remember feeling the old fashioned compassion we used to expect from pediatricians.  Now, long gone. A sad time, when the doctors who truly put our kids' best interests first are leaving us. Our condolences to his family. John's tribute follows the published obituary which read:

Dr. Fouad Edward Yazbak, 89, of West Falmouth, MA, passed away peacefully on April 8th, 2021, joining his cherished wife of 61 years, Maureen (Moynahan) Yazbak who passed way 17 months earlier.

Born in Damanhour, Egypt, he was the son of Dr. Edouard and Eugenie (Farazli) Yazbak and brother to Yvonne and Margaret and brother-in-law to Lawrence (all who predeceased him).

Dr. Yazbak arrived in America in 1957 with his medical degree, $62 and four family photos to join the staff of St. Clare’s Hospital in New York City as an intern. Two weeks later he met Maureen who was completing her nursing education at St. Claire’s. It was love at first sight and they married 6 months later. In 1959, he joined the faculty of Brown University’s Institute of Health Sciences as Pediatric Director of the Child Development Study and Assistant Clinical Director for infectious diseases at Charles V. Chapin Hospital in Providence RI. Dr. and Mrs. Yazbak subsequently began a pediatric practice in Cumberland RI in 1963 from which he retired in 1997. Dr. Yazbak was a Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics and past president of the staff of Woonsocket Hospital. He was a school physician in Northern Rhode Island for 34 years in service to his community. A proud and grateful naturalized American, he helped several doctors immigrate to America.

Food is Love. Except When It's Poison. Baum Hedlund’s Tainted Baby Food Lawsuit.

Mia before regression
Mia feeding her pal Elmo before Regression

Mangia! It's one of the first words every Italian American baby hears from Mamma or Nonna. Mangia figlia mia! Eat up, my daughter! In my case, I was speaking to my daughter Mia - figlia mia, Mia Noel. And then Gianna and then baby sister Isabella. I only bought Earth's Best organic baby food, beginning with Mia's first spoonful of solids in 1995. It's bad enough I and countless other Moms did not know that vaccines contained bolus doses of mercury and other heavy metals at the time. But our babies’ FOOD? I was so careful. I went without so that I could buy the "safest, healthiest" food for my babies. To what avail? 

Lyn Redwood wrote about the travesty of tainted baby food for Children's Health Defense: The Science Is Clear: Heavy Metals in Baby Food Are Bad for Baby’s Brain A 2019 report by Healthy Babies Bright Futures noted that in addition to heavy metals, baby foods are riddled with other neurotoxic chemicals — including perchlorate, phthalates and glyphosate — all of which can add up to significant health impacts.

A lawsuit underway from the firm Baum Hedlund takes on the companies that not only pulled the wool over consumers' eyes, but companies that have actual LIABILITY for their products.

Heavy Metals Baby Food Lawsuit | Autism and ADHD

A government report on toxic heavy metals in baby food found that several brands—including some organic—contain arsenic, cadmium, mercury, and lead at high levels that pose significant dangers to the neurodevelopment of children. Indeed, all of these toxic heavy metals have been associated with autism, autism spectrum disorder (ASD), attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and attention deficit disorder in children.

Parents throughout the country are outraged to learn that baby food products from Happy Family Organics, Happy Baby, Gerber, Earth’s Best Organic, Beech-Nut, Plum Organics, Parent’s Choice, and Sprout Organic Food contain “dangerously high levels” of toxic heavy metals. Worse, the major baby food companies behind these brands knowingly sold tainted baby food to unsuspecting parents, according to the report.

Numerous studies have linked toxic heavy metal exposure to behavior impairments. The link is especially pronounced among babies and young children, whose brains are still developing. Even at low levels, exposure to heavy metals can cause serious and irreversible damage to neurological development.

Healthy Connecticut Kids Face Expulsion With No Plan To Educate

You'd think after a solid year of watching what happens to children forced out of school, and their families, the mere thought of any reason to keep kids home artificially would be wholly repugnant. But no, here in Connecticut legislators have  been voting with salivating glee to cast the dirty, not-fully-vaccinated, dangerous, non-compliant children out of education.  Soon. And then what?

Rapper DMX: How Long Before The Levee Breaks

89EFD83F-1029-4086-B1D2-CD41E92FD1F2Rapper DMX, Earl Simmons passed away yesterday.   This makes another report of a prominent African American suffering an injury post Covid jab. Simmons was in the hospital fighting for his life after a "catastrophic" heart attack. He was 50 years young.  Yes, he had a difficult past and suffered from addiction, and surely that takes a toll on the heart. He was also a son, a friend, a musical icon and a Dad. There are questions building like a stack of sandbags. 

An autopsy will be conducted to determine DMX's cause of death. The rapper had struggled with drug addiction since his teenage years, first becoming addicted to crack cocaine when he was just 14. Richman would not confirm previous reports that an overdose may have contributed to his heart attack. Premature rumors about the rapper's death swirled on social media since his hospitalization. As recently as Thursday night, DMX's manager denied those rumors and asked people to stop spreading them out of respect for the rapper's family. Source: NBC News

DMX. Midwin Charles Esq. Hammerin' Hank Aaron. Marvelous Marvin Hagler. All prominent African Americans who received a COVID vaccine and died sudden, unexplained deaths. Marvin Hagler and now DMX had family or friends saying they had gotten the C jab, and then radio silence and back pedaling damage control.

NPR (national pharma radio) says

DMX is in the hospital on life support after suffering a heart attack. The rapper's lawyer, Murray Richman, told The Associated Press on Saturday evening that DMX was admitted to New York's White Plains Hospital and that "he's quite ill."

Murray did not confirm reports that the 50-year-old rapper and actor had overdosed on drugs. He did not say what caused the heart attack.

"Murray did not confirm reports of a drug overdose."  File that with "When did you stop beating your wife, Mr. Jones?" Who was reporting a drug overdose? Read what the family said to The Washington News Post:

In a contrary report, DMX Received Covid Vaccine Days Before Heart Attack – Family Says NO DRUGS! (EXCLUSIVE)

In an EXCLUSIVE interview, MTO News spoke with DMX’ family member who told us that the rapper received the COVID vaccine about a week before he suffered from the heart attack.

DMX’s family member told MTO News, “[DMX] got the vaccine when they opened it up to people over 50. He got it so that he could go travel and perform, stuff like that.”

Love Notes

3F36A1AC-AEA1-46F0-979E-7F93B1ECEED9Another love note!!! Sigh.... in yesterday’s  email. I respond with kindness. Always. How can we teach or support across the spectrum? Maybe we can’t. Would this e-mailer ever support our more severely affected loved ones? Does (s)she even acknowledge they exist? This is April, Autism Action Month. I feel sad when we get emails or comments like this. I think of a quite possibly lonely guy or gal who feels genuine mistrust and is often alienated because of his or her words. This is someone’s “child” too.  I answered with Dan Olmsted's signature response: "Thank you for emailing us. We always enjoy hearing from our readers."  


As someone on the autism spectrum I just wanted to tell you that your website is one of the most offensive ill-informed pieces of garbage I have ever had the displeasure of coming across. For one, calling autism an ‘epidemic’ is pretty offensive to most of us that have it and are happy with who we are. Also, vaccines don’t cause autism, I cannot believe I’m actually having to say that in 2021 but I suppose ignorance knows no timeline. If you have a conscience, you’ll stop spewing your pseudoscientific garbage and go back to tweeting nasty comments at Bill Gates and the rest of the “globalists”.

New Jersey 101.5's Franco Questions Rutgers' U Student Vax Mandate

Rutgers welcome
Temps must be rising at New Jersey 101.5.  Below is an opinion piece questioning Rutgers' University's announcement that it will REQUIRE Covid vaccination for all students.


God bless Serena DiMaso, the lone Republican lawmaker who is questioning Rutgers’ new mandate to require vaccines for all students.

And when I say “vaccine,” I use the term loosely because this protocol is actually an experimental gene therapy cloaked with the name "vaccine” so that the federal government can’t be sued for it if it doesn’t work out well.

DiMaso, according to an article on, is writing a bill to prevent Rutgers from requiring kids to be guinea pigs with this injection in order to qualify for the Sept. 21 enrollment.

DiMaso understands that forcing kids to take this “vaccine” is wrong, and she also understands the hypocrisy of only requiring it of students, not teachers. That said, according to Children’s Health Defense, a children’s health watch group run by Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Rutgers is being warned about the legality of mandating the vaccine. According to the website, RFK Jr. wrote to Rutgers president Holloway and reminded him of the federal statute:

“Federal law 21 U.S.C. § 360bbb-3(e)(1)(A)(ii)(III) requires that the person to whom an EUA vaccine is administered be advised, ‘of the option to accept or refuse administration of the product, of the consequences, if any, of refusing administration of the product, and of the alternatives to the product that are available and of their benefits and risks.’”

Bottom line is this is an emergency use “vaccine" and cannot be forced upon people.

Will Rutgers heed the warnings of Kennedy as well as the obvious controversy that will inevitably surround their decision to force the shot into students? Will they stop to think about the dangerous precedent they are setting?

Only time will tell.

When I use the term “dangerous” in speaking about the mandate to vaccinate all Rutgers students that was recently announced, I’m not talking about the danger of the “vaccine" itself, although I believe that that danger is a possibility. I am talking about the danger of the mandate itself — not to mention the precarious road we are on when it comes to the erosion of freedom and liberty and the proliferation of government overreach, particularly in terms of one’s health.

An Unhealthy Person Is Our Best Customer

38B03F7A-3842-4192-9B28-F6911549878EThis photo of a clearly proud and happy woman was bouncing around social media.  She looks quite proud, and I hope she is and and remains very healthy. She's holding up her Covid CDC card while chomping on a rather tasty looking donut. Perhaps she took part in the Krispy Kreme promotion. Do they have sprinkle donuts?  I have no idea, I live in Dunkin Donuts country. Everywhere I scroll, I see people waving their vax cards like wee American flags.

What I do not see, is any attention to H-E-A-L-T-H.

Our American Covid protection campaign seems not about becoming or staying healthy for one minute. How often do you see workers standing outside their offices, masks around their chins, puffing away on cigarettes? Personal responsibility is limited to masks and vaccinations.  I haven't seen any public service announcements offering to help them quit smoking to protect their lungs, have you? I see less than zero attention to strengthening the host - that's you and me - to ward off infection. In fact, there seems to be a complete disconnect between personal health responsibility and the ability to avoid contracting or transmitting Covid.  We are told that we're irresponsible if we don't get jabbed or wear a mask, but that's the beginning, middle and end our what's required of us.

The headline I wrote is a throwback to the TV commercials for an off-price clothing chain called Syms.  Now long closed, Sy Sym's daughter Marci would say, "An educated consumer is our best customer."  Those were the days. Syms is long gone, and so is our health.

Kentucky Senate Bill 8 Protects Exemptions During Epidemics

KentuckyKY Senate Bill 8 Passed Protecting the Right of Persons to Object to Immunizations Required During Epidemics Based upon Religious or Conscientiously Held Beliefs

From National Health

Congratulations to Kentucky Medical Freedom Coalition for their win on securing into law the religious and conscientiously held belief exemption for any vaccine that might be mandated by the state due to an epidemic!  The Governor did not sign the bill, but also did not veto it so it became law on Saturday, March 22nd 2021.  Great work and thank you to everyone who worked to support this legislation!

Here is a link to access the bill (Senate Bill 8):  Kentucky Legislative Research Commission Search Options

Here is the bill language that now protects the health freedom right to make your own health care decisions regarding vaccines during an epidemic:

 (2)     In the event of an epidemic in a given area, the Cabinet for Health and Family Services may require the immunization of all persons within the area of epidemic, against the disease responsible for such epidemicexcept that any administrative regulation promulgated pursuant to KRS Chapter 13A, administrative order issued by the cabinet, or executive order issued pursuant to KRS Chapter 39A requiring such immunization shall not include:

Covid Vaccine Clinic Today at Age of Autism Headquarters!

Bunny syringe

Come one! Come all!

Age of Autism is proudly sponsoring a Covid  vaccination clinic at our swanky headquarters here in Connecticut! Not local? No worries. We will send our corporate jet to your closest airfield, rush a limo to your door and then whisk you to our clinic where you will be treated with the kiddingest of kid gloves. Driving? We're at 1313 Mockingbird Lane. The Last house on the left. The Easter Bunny him/her/itself will be administering both lollipops and the vaccines.

(Note: Connecticut moved one giant step toward losing the religious exemption yesterday. Soon, children may not be able to attend school not because of a pandemic but for lack of any vaccine on the ever growing pediatric schedule including flu, HPV and soon, most likely, Covid.  If you have taken any of the Covid vaccines, we respect your right to medical choice and decision making, and hope you extend the same courtesy to those who do want the Covid jab.  Thank you.  Happy April 1. Kim)

CT Votes on Party Lines to Remove Religious Exemption Bills Forward

Locked out of schoolFrom CT Freedom Alliance:

Just moments ago, the CT Public Health Committee voted on party lines (all Democrats in favor, all Republicans opposed) to pass both S.B. 568 AN ACT ELIMINATING THE NONMEDICAL EXEMPTION TO THE IMMUNIZATION REQUIREMENT and H.B. 6423 out of committee, two identical bills that would deny children in CT an education unless they receive every vaccination required by statute for school attendance. On a day known to Christians the world over as "Spy Wednesday," or the day that Judas set in motion his plan to betray Jesus Christ, the Public Health Committee betrayed our children. Their attack on children is truly reprehensible, as this bill will discriminate based on religious belief, and in practice will also have a disproportionately adverse effect on children of color, and children with special needs.

Both bills now move to the House and Senate floors for deliberation and votes. Please immediately reach out to every member of the House and Senate, and let them know why you oppose this legislation! For the Senator and Representative who represents your home district, please be sure to state clearly that you are their constituent. Here are the email addresses for every member of the House and Senate:

Connecticut Could Lose Religious Exemption Today

Leaving ctImportant update from Kevin Barry of First Freedoms on the imminent loss of the religious exemption in Connecticut, the home state of Age of Autism. Tomorrow begins Autism Action month, April Fool's for sure. With COVID, vaccines are now seen as a global savior, more powerful than any other religion.

March 30, 2021

On February 22, 2021,  three Republican members of the Connecticut Public Health Committee wrote a letter to Governor Ned Lamont detailing 31 questions regarding the proposed bill to repeal the state's religious exemption to vaccination. 

Read the letter here.

The Republican Senators had to take this step because the CT Department of Public Health (DPH) and the CT State Department of Education (SDE) did not testify in person during the 24 hour public hearing on February 16th.

On March 26, 2021, DPH and SDE responded to the 31 questions.

Read the response here.

On March 31st (today), the CT Public Health Committee will vote on the bill.  

Patricia Finn Wins New Battle Against NY State Over Disability, Vaccine Exemptions and School Attendence

P FinnIn these alarming times it is pleasant to note the latest in a string of legal victories by Patricia Finn against New York State. In this case a Supreme Court judge granted a restraining order against the state for preventing a medically fragile child, who had not been fully vaccinated from attending school remote school attendance. Finn’s site reports (HERE):


NY Judge Orders Medically Exempt Student

Back to School, Remotely.

The Law Offices of Patricia Finn Attorney, P.C., has just obtained another temporary restraining order in another New York State Medical Exemption case. Last week, a Supreme Court Judge Ordered a defendant school district to immediately readmit a medically fragile child back into school although the child is not fully vaccinated. The student had a certified medical exemption from the family physician waiving the school required vaccinations that had been declined by the school district, and the student's remote learning access was shut off. The parent filed an appeal to the New York State Commissioner of Education seeking a Stay of the school’s decision that was denied. The §310 Appeal to the Commissioner was then withdrawn, and the student’s parent refiled in state court obtaining a temporary restraining order permitting the student back into school while the case is pending in the Supreme Court.

This is a big win for all school kids in the state, and the second time a New York Court has restrained a school district from excluding non-vaccinated children in two separate lawsuits brought by Patricia Finn Attorney, P.C.

Yale Robotics Lab to Pay $15 Per Day to Adults with Autism Who Participate In Study

Yale roboticsYALE University in New Haven, Connecticut is offering $15 a day for adults with autism to participate in a study for the Robotics Lab. It seems the robots will ultimately assist adults with autism to find jobs. Laudable.

$15 a day for 2 hours of work for 7 days. That's $7.50 an hour. Minimum wage is $12.00 here in Connecticut. Yale's tuition is $55,000+ a year. I wish Dan Olmsted were here to share his thoughts about his alma mater.


Our ready-to-go robot system aims to improve its users’ tolerance to everyday interruptions with efficient and relevant training. Over time, we expect the interruptions will become less disruptive, allowing them to return to their main task more quickly. Our motivation in developing this system is to promote the employability of adults with autism.

Adults diagnosed with autism can declare their interest in participating in this study by completing this short survey:

Participating in our study means training during a 2-hour window per day for at least 7 days. We will be paying participants $15 per day of active participation. More details about the study and the training provided by our robot are included in this summary sheet (also attached).

Thank you,

Rebecca Ramnauth 
Yale Social Robotics Lab |

Project Details

We’ve developed a robot to provide efficient and relevant training to improve users’ tolerance to interruptions. We expect users will improve their tolerance for work-related interruptions where, with consistent practice, interruptions will become less disruptive, allowing them to return to their original task more quickly.

What are you asking me to do?

If you agree to take part, your participation in this study will involve you engaging in short conversations with a social robot, and some of the discussions may include performing certain tasks. You will also be responding to other types of interruptions initiated by the robot (such as questions or commonplace sounds).

You will be asked to:

Work with the research team to set up the robot system

Specify which days and times you can expect to engage in a training session

Commit to your specified schedule and actively participate in training sessions

Shingles Adds Another Level of Fear

Gift bad wrappingBreaking news:

COVID-19 increases chance of getting shingles; doctors advise getting both vaccines

TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — As the nation focuses on the COVID-19 vaccine, there is another vaccine doctors want you to get, especially if you’re 55 and older.

Doctors say your chances of developing shingles will increase dramatically if you’ve had COVID-19. They’re strongly advising people to get vaccinated against shingles.

Shingles is a reactivation of chickenpox that ravages the body with extremely painful blisters, and it tends to linger. Those who’ve had chickenpox can develop shingles later in life. The virus lives in your system and will remain dormant until there’s an outbreak, which can be triggered by stress and a weakened immune system, which is exactly what doctors have reported seeing in COVID-19 patients.

The new Covid jabs have never been tested with other jabs. But here, a doctor is telling Americans to get both at once. The sum of the whole could be much worse than the parts. But we do not know. Shingles is a dreadful condition. No one wants them. This is a new level of fear to move the vaccine "hesitant." Who knows if the COVID vaccine itself will trigger Shingles? No one. Soon Doctors will likely tell college students to get their meningitis and HPV jabs when they get COVID. Why not? Then babies can get their full CDC pediatric schedule PLUS the Covid jab. 

President Biden Flip Flops on Vaxports: CNN Reports

Flip flop"This is the future, and we should be comfortable with it.  You're going to gain freedom, you'll probably be Water fountainable to get certain jobs. It gives you an incentive to overcome vaccine hesitancy." Listen to Art Caplan write off entire nations who might be harmed economically because they do not have access to the vaccine. Hint, it won't be first world nations, will it?

We'll call them Joe Biden laws. Nothing to crow about.


Washington (CNN) The Biden administration is currently working to develop a system for people to prove they've been vaccinated against the coronavirus, according to a senior administration official.

Multiple government agencies are engaged in conversations and planning, coordinated by the White House, as this kind of system will play a role in multiple aspects of life, including potentially the workforce, the official said.
President Joe Biden has predicted that life in the US could be back to normal by Christmas, and as more Americans are vaccinated each day, these vaccine credentials -- commonly called "vaccine passports" -- could be key to a return to normalcy by the end of the year.
Some sectors, meanwhile, like the travel industry, have clamored for a uniform system to be developed as they seek a return to normalcy. Governments around the world may seek proof of vaccinations before foreigners can enter their borders again.
The administration's plans were first reported by The Washington Post.

The Biden administration previously said the federal government should not be involved in efforts to create a vaccine passport system to verify that people have been vaccinated.

Tomorrow All Kids Must Test & Ride Autonomous School Busses

EC4EB8DE-999F-45AA-9BBC-17AEA6F9E1E2Great news!!! We can end global warming save the planet! You just need to put your child on an experimental, driver-free, autonomous school bus that uses a never before successfully employed type of nuclear fuel source. There’s no driver, or helper, but your child will be safely latched in while in motion, like a rollercoaster. Weeee! The safety harnesses work well most of the time and there have only been a few kids choked to death... scratch that. There have been no safety issues (in students who rode on Leap Year the 29th with no glasses, slender body types between 4’3 and 4’4” and blood type AB-.) Bonus? The bus manufacturing plants will employ thousands of workers who have been displaced from their jobs, so it’s imperative that you help them. The schools say it’s safe. The State and Federal government say it is safe.  And it’s going to be the only legal way to attend school as legislation is sweeping across the states. A few housekeeping details: If it crashes, you can not sue anyone associated with the bus, the schools, the state. By July, these busses will also replace all city and town busses so adults can ride them too, or a least share the roads and highways with them. And by 2023,  cars will no longer have a “driver’s side.” All vehicles will be mandated to go driver free. You can keep your old steering wheel dinosaur, but you will face steep tolls on all roads. Relax! Watch Tik Tok on Route 95. Surf the web on 1A! Sound good? No?



Lupron Maim to Miracle

LonelyRemember Lupron? It was in the news a decade or more ago. It's a drug that slows or reverses puberty. When used as a treatment to help manage some of the worst symptoms of autism, it was seen as draconian punishing, akin to flogging a child on the town square. Only the most horrible parents and irresponsible doctors would consider using this powerful drug to "change" their children. Children who were wracked with aggression, pain, screaming, gut agony and struggling so very badly. Left to languish from this evil drug.

In the early-mid 2000s, Lupron was assailed as a chemical castration drug - Chemical Castration Drug Peddled As Autism TreatmentChemical Castration Drug Peddled As Autism Treatment Source: Disablity Scoop

In 2021, Lupron is offered to children who do not identify with their birth assigned gender. Parents are encouraged to learn their options to halt puberty.

Puberty can be confusing or difficult for a child who is transgender, genderqueer, nonbinary or questioning their gender.

Puberty blockers, also called hormone blockers, help delay unwanted physical changes that don’t match someone’s gender identity. Delaying these changes can be an important step in a young person’s transition. It can also give your child more time to explore their options before deciding whether or how to transition. Source: St Louis Children's Hospital

Lupron was considered unsafe and TOXIC for use in treatment of symptoms of autism: From the Guardian in 2009, ...the imposition of dehumanising and dangerous treatments on children with autism is a more immediate and pressing problem. Toxic treatments for autistic children

Today? Look at what a major US Children's Hospital has on their website:

Most experts, including our team, believe that puberty blockers are safe:

The Endocrine Society and the World Professional Association for Transgender Health support the use of puberty blockers for kids who want to delay or prevent unwanted physical changes.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved puberty blockers for children who start puberty at a young age.

The denial of this treatment was never about danger to children with autism. It was about the wholesale refusal to find, acknowledge, approve or offer any treatments at all. Our children felt miserable in their own bodies, and no one cared.  For those families whose kids are facing battles with gender identification, we hope you have more answers, support and help from the medical community than we did.

Krispy Kreme's "Promotion" for Pharma Promotes Obesity and Disease for Poor and People of Color

Thanks, Krispy Kreme. I got mine. Homer

Obesity, diabetes and heart disease are killers in the USA, and people of color are impacted at a higher rate. Obesity WORSENS Covid health outcomes!

Obesity is a common, serious, and costly chronic disease. Having obesity puts people at risk for many other serious chronic diseases and increases the risk of severe illness from COVID-19. Everyone has a role to play in turning the tide against obesity and its dispr oportionate impact on racial and ethnic minority groups. Source: CDC Obesity, Race/Ethnicity, and COVID-19

But Krispy Kreme is being hailed a hero for offering free donuts with proof of a Covid vaccine. Is THAT what public health has come to? Bribes with sweets as if Americans are silly children will who walk like wee Zombies, or donut aficionado Homer Simpson, and do anything for.... a DONUT?  This program flies in the face of the most rudimentary health advice, and even the bottom 5% MD who had 15 minutes of nutrition class in med school knows that this is a flat out disgrace.  Dr. Fauci condones this charade? We are being told that all we need to do is take a vaccine, and voila! Health! Safety! Life!!! Nonsense. Diet, nutrition, Vitamin status, exercise, weight, BMI, stress levels all contribute to dis-ease.  There is more to life on Earth than vaccinating for Covid. And this campaign harms some more than others.  Where's the outcry?

FYI - Krispy Kreme is also offering a free donut to those who don't want to be vaccinated, because contests, unlike much of life, have rules about discrimination. See the KK promotion here - Be Sweet to Your Community COVID-19 Vaccine Offer.

Ingredients:Doughnut(Enriched Wheat Flour (Wheat Flour, Niacin, Reduced Iron, Thiamine Mononitrate, Riboflavin, Folic Homer simpson donutAcid), Water, Palm Oil, Soybean Oil, Sugar. Contains 2% or Less of Each of the Following: Yeast, Soy Lecithin, Hydrogenated Soybean Oil, Salt, Mono and Diglycerides, Wheat Gluten, Calcium Sulfate, Monocalcium Phosphate, BHT, Dried Milk Powder, Egg Yolks, Cellulose Gum, Calcium Propionate (To Maintain Freshness), Ammonium Sulfate, Ascorbic Acid, Dicalcium Phosphate, Sorbitan Monostearate, Tocopherols, Tricalcium Phosphate, Diammonium Phosphate); Glaze(Sugar, Water, Corn Starch, Palm Oil, Calcium Sulfate And/Or Calcium Carbonate, Agar, Dextrose, Natural and Artificial Flavors, Salt, Disodium Phosphate, Locust Bean Gum And/Or Mono and Diglycerides)

Come to think of it, this ingredient list would make Pharma proud.....


From CDC:  Obesity is a common, serious, and costly disease

The prevalence of obesity was 42.4% in 2017~2018.

From 1999–2000 through 2017–2018, the prevalence of obesity increased from 30.5% to 42.4%, and the prevalence of severe obesity increased from 4.7% to 9.2%.

Obesity-related conditions include heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and certain types of cancer that are some of the leading causes of preventable, premature death.

The estimated annual medical cost of obesity in the United States was $147 billion in 2008 US dollars; the medical cost for people who have obesity was $1,429 higher than those of normal weight.

Obesity affects some groups more than others

[Read CDC National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) data brief]

Non-Hispanic Black adults (49.6%) had the highest age-adjusted prevalence of obesity, followed by Hispanic adults (44.8%), non-Hispanic White adults (42.2%) and non-Hispanic Asian adults (17.4%).
The prevalence of obesity was 40.0% among adults aged 20 to 39 years, 44.8% among adults aged 40 to 59 years, and 42.8% among adults aged 60 and older.

Obesity and socioeconomic status

[Read the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR)]

The association between obesity and income or educational level is complex and differs by sex and race/ethnicity.

Overall, men and women with college degrees had lower obesity prevalence compared with those with less education.

By race/ethnicity, the same obesity and education pattern was seen among non-Hispanic White, non-Hispanic Black, and Hispanic women, and also among non-Hispanic White men, although the differences were not all statistically significant.

Although the difference was not statistically significant among non-Hispanic Black men, obesity prevalence increased with educational attainment. Among non-Hispanic Asian women and men and Hispanic men, there were no differences in obesity prevalence by education level.

Among men, obesity prevalence was lower in the lowest and highest income groups compared with the middle-income group. This pattern was seen among non-Hispanic White and Hispanic men. Obesity prevalence was higher in the highest income group than in the lowest income group among non-Hispanic Black men.

Among women, obesity prevalence was lower in the highest income group than in the middle and lowest income groups. This pattern was observed among non-Hispanic White, non-Hispanic Asian, and Hispanic women. Among non-Hispanic Black women, there was no difference in obesity prevalence by income.

Latest Stimulus Package to Include Help for Disabled

` We are here!From SafeMinds:

Home and Community Based Services Receives Billions From New Relief Package 

The $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan was signed into law earlier this month by President Joe Biden.  The plan provides additional economic relief to weary American citizens hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic. Since the disability community was largely ignored by last spring’s CARES Act and last December’s $900 billion stimulus relief package, a recent advocacy campaign was sparked which urged lawmakers to include more financial assistance to this fragile population. The advocacy campaign proved successful. The new relief package will dispense billions of dollars to special education and home- and community-based services (HCBS). The plan will also deliver stimulus payments for many with disabilities who were previously overlooked. Specifically, the American Rescue Plan will provide the disability community with $12.6 billion for Medicaid HCBS, $3 billion for Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) programs, and $1400 stimulus checks for dependents over the age of 16. Previously, only dependents under the age of 17 were eligible for stimulus payments. For more information on the American Rescue Plan’s effect on the disability community,  check out the Center for Public Representation’s comprehensive list of what the legislation does and does not include.   Read more here at SafeMinds.

MagufuliUpdate 3/18: President Magufuli has died at age 61. Reports indicate a heart condition as cause of death.

Sometimes we share news from far away.  This is an interesting story from Africa. ABC News and other outlets have reported on Tanzanian President John Magufuli having been out of the spotlight since late February.  Tanzania cops arrest man for reporting that president is ill Tanzanian police have arrested a man for circulating posts suggesting that President John Magufuli is in ill health

Magufuli is one of Africa’s most prominent COVID-19 skeptics. Last year he said the disease had been eradicated from Tanzania by three days of national prayer. He cast doubt on tests to determine COVID-19 discouraged Tanzanians from wearing masks, keeping a distance from others, and the use of vaccines to combat the disease. Magufuli’s absence is unusual as he is known for frequent public speeches and appearances on state television several times a week.

Below is another POV on the missing leader:

KIT KNIGHTLY, Tap News blog

John Magufuli, President of Tanzania, has disappeared. He’s not been seen in public for several weeks, and speculation is building as to where he might be.

The opposition has, at various times, accused the President of being hospitalised with “Covid19”, either in Kenya or India, although there remains no evidence this is the case.

To add some context, John Magufuli is one of the “Covid denier” heads of state from Africa.

He famously had his office submit five unlabelled samples for testing – goat, motor oil, papaya, quail and jackfruit – and when four came back positive and one “inconclusive”, he banned the testing kits and called for an investigation into their origin and manufacture.

Deregulating GM: Obscene Farce of the Modern British State

image from upload.wikimedia.orgBy John Stone
This is a succinct response to the British government consultation on the future of GMO technology taking place amid zero publicity and about to close (last day for submissions Wednesday). Note also the valuable introduction at Alliance for Natural Health.
Response to consultation ‘The regulation of genetic technologies’

This document is couched in up-side down language which some might term Orwellian:

1) It is actually about the deregulation of genetic technologies

2) It represents this as a “green” policy when it is patently an opportunistic attack by an industrial lobby on our natural environment, and upon bio-diversity. It could not be more anti-green in any way that could normally or traditionally be understood

3) Previous moves of this kind globally have left small and medium landholders at the mercy of grasping, unscrupulous manufacturers

4) If part of the argument is that the putative advances could also be achieved without GM technology, why do we need GM at all? This is not a credible explanation for changing the law

5) If GM is deregulated the only people the manufacturers will be answerable to is their shareholders, so how is the public interest represented?

6) I tried taking the survey but found it full of leading questions

It is shocking that this matter is not being raised in an openly democratic manner. While the British public have always rejected GM produce to the extent that it is presently unsaleable in our country, deregulating it was never conspicuously brought up as a reason for leaving the European Union at the time of Referendum in 2016 or at the December 2019 General Election: the only time I recall this project being mentioned was the Prime Minister’s speech on entering Downing Street in July 2019. This is a radical departure for the UK but the public are being cynically kept out of the picture - although there is the present consultation you will not read or hear about it in the mainstream media. One can deduce that the reason for this is that if it was adequately reported it would be overwhelmingly unpopular.

The slogan ‘Building back greener’ used in the document derives from the World Economic Forum who are also putting it out that in ten years-time no one but a tiny global elite will own anything but “will be happy”. If the government is dancing to the tune of the Great Reset perhaps it should tell the public who elected it where it is heading because no one could have imagined little more than a year ago what they were voting for. So much for Margaret Thatcher's “property-owning democracy” recently reiterated by the Prime Minister while apparently hooked into an alternative, techno-feudalist, ideology. What now are we to believe either about the environment, safe food, property or democracy?

Marvelous Marvin Hagler's Death Unexpected Like Hank Aaron's

98E1E1D3-62D3-46D9-8845-D673D5F30310Boxing legend Marvelous Marvin Hagler died over the weekend causing a rash of speculation. Former opponent Thomas Hearns asked for prayers and said that Hagler was in the ICU following an adverse reaction to his Covid jab. His family later said he died at home "unexpectedly."

"Madness ensued" online.

Hagler was 66 years old. I believe our own Dan Olmsted would have been 66 this year  himself.

Earlier this winter, baseball and civil rights hero Hammerin' Hank Aaron died just two weeks after his very public, on camera vaccination. He was older than Hagler, but said to have been in good health and also died unexpectedly. Two African American males, sports legends. In a normal world, experts would be rushing to discover if there was any correlation to the vaccination. We do not live in a normal world. Those of us in the autism vaccine injury community have known what millions of formerly naive Americans are now discovering. Vaccines, unlike the doctors who administer them, can DO NO HARM. Not by design. By edict.

Rest in peace Marvelous Marvin.

Pi Day 2021 a Far Cry from when Autism Was In the Media in the 20-Teens

Cakir-et-al-2020-figure-5-420x219Yesterday was March 14, 2021. Also known as Pi day, for the mathematical 3.14159265359..., the ratio of the circumference of any circle to the diameter of that circle. Daniel Tammet, he of the book Born on a Blue Day and a man on the spectrum, holds the record for memorizing the first 22,514 digits. Tammet was in the spotlight in the 20-teens, the heyday of autism books, memoirs and society's fascination, interest and attention to autism.  Age of Autism began publishing in the blog format  in 2007. Dan Olmsted and Mark Blaxill were writing their deep dive into the origins of the epidemic together: The Age of Autism: Mercury, Medicine, and a Man-Made Epidemic.

Autism has lost its media sheen. More the shame, because as cute kids become adults, the needs increase. School stops at 18 or 22 and the drop off is steep for services. The severely affected languish. Those who can do brilliant work and enjoy employment struggle to find and hold onto meaningful work. All while tired parents are growing older, worrying about their own retirement, many trapped in the sandwich generation, also caring for ageing parents. It's grim picture. I read on a CT special needs Facebook page a request. A woman had just become guardian for her 54 year old cousin with autism. Both of his parents had died, rather suddenly. And she was asking how she could make his weekend visits to her home enjoyable for him. Wow. Do your kids have a cousin who would take on such responsibility?

We found trillions for Covid vaccines in less than a year. Not autism. Washington DC added payments to unemployment due

Washington DC offered PPP loans to businesses shut down by Covid.  How many families had to close a business or quit a job to take care of a loved one with autism? SafeMinds featured this story in 2020.  Pi day was yesterday. But autism will not get a piece of any pie we want.

Next Decade Will Add More Trillions to Looming Public Financial Burden

The lifetime cost of autism for U.S. cases identified in the 30 years between 1990 and 2019 is estimated to be $7 trillion. If costs for the next decade 2020-2029 are included, the lifetime cost will reach up to $15 trillion. The findings were reported in a new study in the journal Research in Autism Spectrum Disorders.

COVID-19 vaccine side effects & deaths: The lack of information on how, where to report With so many people getting the same vaccines all at once, most people are hearing post vaccine experiences varying from mild, to terrifying. For a growing number here in Utah and across the country, the COVID-19 vaccine taken to save a life put them dangerously close to losing their own.

SALT LAKE CITY (KUTV) — Like many others, Eunjin Kim felt like she’d been hit with an instant case of influenza after getting her second shot of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine.

I was laying there with a down comforter and with the electric blanket and still shivering," Kim said.

Carissa Spencer didn’t have to wait for her second shot of the Pfizer vaccine to feel like something wasn’t right. She had swelling that moved down the right side of her body.

"I was extremely nervous, it wasn’t very attractive at all," Spencer said.

Cari Banks also received the Pfizer vaccine. Hours after getting the first shot, she was rushing to the nearest hospital. Four days and two emergency rooms later, Banks was released from University of Utah Hospital.

I got up there and coded again and they brought me back down. All the breathing and wheezing had ruptured my vocal cord.”  


Here's a car! But I don't know that brand, nor drive a steering wheel on left, stick shift car. You have to.
Here's dinner! But I don't eat pork sausage, it's against my religion. You have to.
Here's a house! But I have mobility issues and can not manage staircases. You have to.

Here's a vaccine! But I don't know anything about any of the three. I might want to choose.  You have to take what we give you. And we won't teach you how to report a problem when you leave our brief observation period.

Americans are lining up with glee for the C jab with nary a care as to which product they get, let alone any understanding of the differences. Science is so important! "We" are anti-science because we want choice, right to decline and information. They refuse to read any science other than what the media feeds them.

Reader Judy sent us this important article that may disappear. As little as Americans know about the jabs, they know less about the system to report adverse effects. COVID-19 vaccine side effects & deaths: The lack of information on how, where to report

New Show from Dr. Paul Thomas Against The Wind

Scrambled1Check out a new website from Dr. Paul Thomas called featuring his new show Against The Wind.  Or in today's climate, the hurricane.  Dr. Thomas is a pediatrician who has been penalized for using his medical expertise on behalf of his young patients' health.  His crime? Writing books and discussing vaccination from ALL angles, including the risks.

WHO Official on Ethicial Considerations Against a Travel Pass

Freedom airNote: Below is an AP release currently on several sources. Are you worried that you, or perhaps loved ones, who are unable or unwilling at this time to take a C jab will be barred from travel? Travel is much more than a holiday lark. Travel means livelihood. Seeing relatives around the world for special occasions, including funerals. Visiting a parent for children of divorce. Helping a friend when Zoom and the phone just aren't enough.


Geneva: A senior World Health Organisation official said that so-called “vaccine passports" for COVID-19 should not be used for international travel because of numerous concerns, including ethical considerations that coronavirus vaccines are not easily available globally.

At a press briefing on Monday, WHO emergencies chief Dr Michael Ryan said there are “real practical and ethical considerations" for countries considering using vaccine certification as a condition for travel, adding the U.N. health agency advises against it for now.

“Vaccination is just not available enough around the world and is not available certainly on an equitable basis," Ryan said. WHO has previously noted that it's still unknown how long immunity lasts from the numerous licensed COVID-19 vaccines and that data are still being collected.

Ryan also noted the strategy might be unfair to people who cannot be vaccinated for certain reasons and that requiring vaccine passports might allow “inequity and unfairness (to) be further branded into the system."

NBA: No Business Asking For Mandate

LeBron Twitter
Action Alert: Share the trailer for Medical Racism The New Apartheid across platforms.

Share your support for medical choice with LeBron and send him a Tweet. If his account gets enough Tweets, perhaps someone in his camp will take a look. Perhaps he will. Here's a sample you can use:

Hi, @KingJames. I support your right to medical privacy & choice. Check Out MEDICAL RACISM on targeting minorities for unethical experiments, aided by regulatory agencies & silent physicians who allow these atrocities to continue today.

Nothing but net as the USA’s NBA says the C vax will not be mandated for its players. No Covid vaccine mandate for NBA players: commissionerThe Wall Street Journal reports that all pro sports athletes are showing reservations and the leagues are "Trying to persuade them."

Perhaps they saw what happened to Hank Aaron, after his sadly ill fated public vaccination publicity opp this past winter.   He died of "natural causes" two weeks later. Perhaps someone much closer, like a child, suffered a vaccine injury. Many athletes are in "club", most not public because to express concern is also a career danger.

LeBron James, one of the the most respected Hank Aaron Gets Vaxednames in sports and a man who has not been afraid to make political statements from his heart in the past, played coy when asked whether he would get the Covid vaccine.  He knows what will happen to him if he flat out says "NO." He should not have to tell the world his medical decisions. It is his right to take, or say "no thanks" to a shot, celebrity or not.  But the Twitter world is turning on him. After all, celebs are only useful when they parrot back the official lines. But if they dare buck the flow of public health and social thinking, then they are benched, so to speak.

Just do... it - it's what your medical history and conscience tells you is right. 

Children’s Health Defense and Health Choice Announce Strategic Alliance

"Two great groups...." Who's old enough to remember?

Children’s Health Defense (CHD) and Health Choice (HC) signed a strategic alliance between the two organizations to collaborate more closely and share resources. The alliance reflects recent efforts to create more unity in the health freedom movement. This alliance is a concrete example of how health freedom groups can unite to be more effective. (See

“We are excited to formalize our alliance with our friends at Health Choice. We’ve known the leaders of these groups for many years and have worked together on many issues and initiatives,” said Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., founder and Chairman of Children’s Health Defense. “We are stronger together,” added Kennedy.

“I’ve been involved with Health Choice since its inception as Chair of its Advisory Committee,” notes CHD President Mary Holland. “They’ve built one of the nation’s most effective networks of health freedom groups, a network that is expanding and improving daily under the threat of hostile legislation and mandates. There is so much more good work we can do together to empower and enrich the network.”

“We’ve been working arm-in-arm with the Children’s Health Defense leadership team for nearly 20 years. It’s an honor to deepen our collaboration as we take on the medical-industrial complex while it works to remove health sovereignty and parental choice all over America,” said Health Choice co-founder and Chairman Mark Blaxill. “We are especially appreciative of the chance this alliance affords state groups to work alongside RFK, Jr. and his team, advancing their standing in local communities and strengthening local advocacy efforts,” added Jennifer Larson, co-founder and President of Health Choice.  “Why not reduce the redundancy in our common interest?”

The ABCs and 123s of 2021

Choice_mainYesterday, my Connecticut town vaccinated 800 school staff members with the brand spanking new Johnson & Johnson vaccine.  Oh frabjous day!  That was a favorite phrase of our dear founder Dan Olmsted, from Lewis Carroll's Through the Looking Glass. Which is
exactly where we are today. 

Town social media is giddy with delight. Town 981A53E2-AC6C-4342-9750-609833B5D894with DARE drug awareness programs. Town with anguished conversations about addiction. Town riddled with cancers. 

It's as if Santa has slid down the chimney, and Jesus has returned and Elijah has sat down for the Seder meal all at once. I expect a virtual parade. No hint of worry. No mention of side effects. And it's "only one shot!" Women of all F7E41C86-F4E5-4DF4-AC2C-5DBE898D8F36ages,  including young wives and mothers, flooded the high school for their jab. Our precious babies, our injured children taught them....nothing.

I think those who are not interested in the vaccine at this time are simply keeping their mouths shut to avoid being slapped into stockades on our New England town green.  Ever watchful. And worried.

As they waited to check out, a party-like atmosphere reigned in the waiting area, with relieved laughter and occasional high-fives among the newly vaccinated.

Suggestions for Health and Safety

Here's a new poster with reminders you can share with loved ones to promote health at this time. Each family is different. Some of our children with autism may not tolerate a mask.  Chemical sensitivities may have worsened over the last year. Good nutrition is always important. And for many of us in colder climates, the sun is about to return as Spring approaches. Vitamin D! Common sense in a bolus dose. We have read precious little about proactive steps that aren't fear-based.  How are you keeping your family healthy during Covid?
