Remembering the Forgotten Fallen:The Casualties in the War Against Infectious Disease

DenialNote: John Gilmore published this post yesterday in The Autism Action Network email list. Please click through to subscribe.

Memorial Day is a remembrance of those servicemen and women who gave their lives to protect the United States of America. But there are many wars raging at all times. And the war on infectious disease has taken a steep toll on individuals, while making billions for captured industry. Some of us have earned the dreaded Gold star, like the Tembenis family. Others of us, silver, bronze. 

This week, we will continue to share Dan Olmsted and Mark Blaxill's book, Denial: How Refusing to Face the Facts about Our Autism Epidemic Hurts Children, Families, and Our FutureDenial: How Refusing to Face the Facts about Our Autism Epidemic Hurts Children, Families, and Our Future

By John Gilmore

We set aside Memorial Day to remember and honor those who lost their lives in service to the United States, especially those who fell or were wounded in the many wars and battles in our relatively short history. There have been many battles: Lexington, New Orleans, Chickimauga, Belleau Wood, Tarawa, Midway, The Bulge, the Korean DMZ, Khe Sahn, Afghanistan, and so many more. 

We exist as a nation and a people because of the sacrifices hundreds of thousands of mostly young men made at those places and countless others. Not much good seems to be said about the United States these days. We are a mightily flawed nation without question, but a quote from Winston Churchill describing “democracy” applies equally well, in my opinion, to the “United States.” “The United States is the worst possible country, except for the other ones.“

It is right and fitting that we remember and honor those who fell for our good. On Memorial Day we should also remember the many casualties, both dead and wounded, resulting from our ongoing “war” against infectious disease. My son Luke and millions like him are the unacknowledged walking wounded, the never-to-be-mentioned collateral damage, in the never-ending “war” against infections, some serious, many trivial, that comprises the majority of what we call “public health” and “pediatrics” in the United States today.  

Luke was drafted into fighting that war shortly after birth. He was injured by one, some, or all, of the four injections he received at 60 days old. Unlike most newborns, Luke never received the birth hepatitis b dose because he was born in the window around 2000 when the hepatitis b shot was quietly withdrawn after an internal secret study by the CDC found more than 7 times as much autism in children who received the birth hepatis b containing mercury as those who did not. (Search “Simpsonwood”). Birth hep b shots were quietly returned when some vaccines, but not all, that did not contain mercury became available.

Luke marched today in a local Memorial Day parade with a group of friends, many of them walking wounded like Luke. The parade ended at a city park with memorials to the locals who served and died. The World War II memorial had the names of the 57 Baldwin, New York, residents who died fighting and the thousands who served. How many names would there be on a monument for those who died or were injured in the war to prevent hepatitis b, COVID, chicken pox, etc.?

Best of Olmsted on Autism: How to Completely Miss the Story

Swing and miss Note: Dan Olmsted published this piece 15 years ago, May 27, 2009. Read it, and tell us what has changed....    This also happens to be the anniversary of the publication of Dan and Mark Blaxill's book Denial: How Refusing to Face the Facts about Our Autism Epidemic Hurts Children, Families, and Our FutureDenial: How Refusing to Face the Facts about Our Autism Epidemic Hurts Children, Families, and Our Future. This book is more important than ever. And as unheeded as the red flags of Watergate, in Dan's article below, not to mention our raison d'etre.  Dan is gone. Dr. Mayer Eisenstein is gone. Two respected and beloved advocates and scientifically curious men. Today, we remember them too.

By Dan Olmsted - May 27, 2009

The New York Times published a piece over the Memorial Day weekend that must have been painful to write – they now realize they had the Watergate scandal handed to them on a silver platter four decades ago and just plain missed it. “The Watergate break-in eventually forced a presidential resignation and turned two Washington Post reporters into pop-culture heroes. But almost 37 years after the break-in, two former New York Times journalists have stepped forward to say that The Times had the scandal nearly in its grasp before The Post did — and let it slip.”

“Robert M. Smith, a former Times reporter, says that two months after the burglary, over lunch at a Washington restaurant, the acting director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, L. Patrick Gray, disclosed explosive aspects of the case, including the culpability of the former attorney general, John Mitchell, and hinted at White House involvement.”
 
Exactly how this big fish got up off its silver lunch platter and swam away is worth reading (HERE).
 
But the bottom line is this: If the account is correct, “The Times missed a chance to get the jump on the greatest story in a generation.”
 
You can watch the same thing happen every day now with the greatest story of this generation, and I Denialmean “this generation” very literally – the catastrophic rise of developmental and chronic diseases in this generation of children, the leading edge of which is starting to age into young adulthood. Start anywhere you want – 1 in 10 with asthma, a forty-fold increase in bipolar diagnoses, record levels of juvenile diabetes and, of course, our focus – the rise of autism and ADD and ADHD and sensory integration problems and etc., the neurodevelopmental kitchen sink that is disabling our future.

ROCKVILLE, MD, March 3, 2023 –
The Autism Society of America announced today that it has received a multi-million dollar grant from the USAging’s Aging and Disability Vaccination Collaborative (ADVC). The ADVC is an initiative funded by the U.S. Administration for Community Living to provide outreach, technical assistance, and support to promote vaccination uptake.  

“This grant will allow the Autism Society to expand our very successful and highly acclaimed Vaccine Education Initiative (VEI), a public health model that promotes vaccine confidence, education, and access to increase vaccination rates for underserved populations,” shares Christopher Banks, President and CEO of the Autism Society of America.

Breaking Barriers: How Autism Challenges the Bystander Effect

Bystander_effectThe bystander effect occurs when the presence of others discourages an individual from intervening in an emergency situation, against a bully, or during an assault or other crime. The greater the number of bystanders, the less likely it is for any one of them to provide help to a person in distress.

By Vladimir Kogan

Have you ever been someplace where someone was being aggressively harassed or attacked, yet the surrounding friends or witnesses did nothing to intervene or diffuse the situation? The bystander effect, a well-documented phenomenon in social psychology, highlights how individual responsibility tends to diminish when people are in groups. This effect suggests that in emergency situations, the presence of a larger number of people can lower the likelihood of any single individual feeling compelled to intervene or help. This effect emerges from the elusive structures of human behavior, where responsibility diffuses into invisibility among a crowd.

Recent groundbreaking research from York University suggests individuals on the autism spectrum may be remarkably resistant to the bystander effect. The mechanisms explored in the study, such as diffusion of responsibility and social evaluation apprehension, reveal that autistic individuals, due to their unique social processing mechanisms, are potentially less swayed by group influence. Unlike neurotypical people who tend to hold back from intervening when others are present, those with autism showed no decrease in helpfulness even in the presence of a crowd. This drifting of a deeply ingrained behavior suggests that what we take as an artifact of human nature might simply be an unwritten cultural script.

The research suggests that autistic individuals may be less susceptible to the bystander effect,  often responding out of a strong sense of duty to correct perceived wrongs rather than being deterred by the presence of others or the fear of social backlash. Their unique approach to processing social influences and decision-making, possibly rooted in different neural patterns, allows them to bypass the passivity typical in group situations.

Unlike their non-autistic peers, who might see societal norms as flexible, autistic individuals often view them as concrete guidelines, leading them to act based on a distinct, principled sense of moral obligation. This perspective enables them to intervene more freely, guided by their ethical judgments and perceived necessities, regardless of potential personal repercussions or group dynamics.

In childhood, strict observance of rules might lead to misunderstandings with peers who perceive some rules as flexible. By adolescence, this commitment to rules often positions them as advocates for justice, though it may also isolate them socially. In professional environments, such as college or the workplace, strong adherence to rules and straightforward communication can benefit roles prioritizing safety and compliance. However, these traits can create challenges in adapting to less structured or socially demanding settings, where flexibility and complex interpersonal skills can be required. 'Masking,' an adaptive method that autistic people can utilize to blend in with neurotypical norms, is presented as a double-edged sword that can improve performance at work but also suppress autism identity.

Autism stereotypes have long endorsed a narrative of disengagement and disconnection, which not only misrepresents the actual capabilities and diverse experiences of autistic individuals but reinforces social barriers. However, recent research on the bystander effect phenomenon challenges these assumptions and sheds fresh light on autistic people's abilities to make quick decisions in high-pressure situations.

Where neurotypical people frequently succumb to paralysis and diffusion of responsibility in emergencies, the studies reveal that many on the autism spectrum, with their attuned focus on rules and moral codes, autistic individuals were found more likely to intervene rather than unconsciously conform to collective indecision.

How do these revelations reshape our understanding of genuine social engagement? The breadth of community involvement has been overly defined by our reliance on limited neurotypical models of social interaction. Autistic people's bravery and independence in this body of research should force us to rethink that outdated criterion. To drive toward a community ethos that actively engages and includes all members, it becomes apparent that these unconventional social behaviors should truly be valued. The human condition is diverse and complex, and this is a call to prioritize authentic participation above forced conformity.

Autistic perspectives fundamentally challenge the notion of a monolithic human experience, pushing society to recognize a broader spectrum of what is considered normal. Their unique ways of being and interacting with the world prompt a re-examination of societal norms and question structures built on perceived universal human responses. This question raises the possibility of a more significant social movement for redefining social engagement in a culture that subtly values inaction over responsiveness.

Legal frameworks and policies must evolve to accommodate and protect distinct autistic perspectives authentically. Too often, what we celebrate in theory gets stifled by antiquated bureaucratic and judicial systems that impede true inclusivity. The shift in mindset from viewing neurodivergence as a barrier to recognizing it as a vital source of innovation is a marker of actual progressive change. Insights from bystander effect studies are simply early chapters in a larger narrative that reveals the potential for neurodiverse individuals to expand and enrich our world.

The revelations emerging from our understanding of neurodiversity should challenge society to reevaluate how we support individuals with different cognitive profiles. This necessitates a thoughtful recalibration of societal norms and practices, ensuring that the unique abilities of neurodiverse individuals are recognized and harnessed, not stifled by expectations to conform.

Communities can create supportive environments that acknowledge and enrich the diverse strengths of all members. This enables all individuals, regardless of their backgrounds or abilities, to contribute meaningfully, reinforcing the values of inclusion and respect. By nurturing these inclusive spaces, we can construct a foundation for sustained societal growth and innovation where diversity is celebrated.

We Are Not Machines

IMG_2664Yesterday was Mother’s Day in the USA. Society likes to claim that motherhood is sacred. And autism motherhood gets elevated to the point of beatification. Sainthood. We are not machines who can endure anything and everything that life PLUS autism launches at us. This well-intentioned compliment, “Strongest women I know,” sets us up for isolated, sadness, guilt-ridden moments. And sometimes much worse. 

Most of us ARE incredibly strong and dedicated to our children, long after the nest should have been emptied. We never get a real break. We worry at every turn. We run at varying speeds on a treadmill with no emergency cut off button. We cope. Please let’s keep in mind that some small number do not cope. If you know an autism Mom who is struggling, maybe hiding her diminished arsenal of defenses, try to help her.  We must acknowledge that this journey gets tougher and scarier as we grow older along with our children, most of whom will need some level of loving care long after we are gone. 

Some days we crush life, other days we feel crushed. For most of us, and I can assure you that for me, the good days far outnumber the bad. But our normal would blow other folks’ minds. 

We are not machines. We are flesh and blood mothers. And none of us is Mother Teresa.

CHD Says Take Action by Midnight Tonight — Tell the FDA to Take COVID Shots Off the Childhood Schedule!

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has scheduled a Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee (VRBPAC) meeting on May 16 to discuss and make recommendations on the selection of strain(s) to be included in the 2024-2025 formula for COVID-19 vaccines.

I would most certainly not do this.

And my response:

And we respect your right to choice. Once on the pediatric schedule - all manner of loopholes apply - in order to get any relief from injury. And if the vaccine becomes necessary to attend school, many families who choose some/most even all currently mandated vaccines for their kids would be out of compliance if they said NO to only this vaccine. Their kids expelled. That's hardly a way to encourage vaccination, if that is your goal. The Covid vaccine has made more Americans "Anti-vaxxers" (a word we dislike, pro choice is not anti) than any previous vaccine since the catastrophic Swine flu vaccine in the 70s.

Interview with Martin Kulldorff on Wayne Rohde's Vaccine Court Substack

Martin KulldorffThanks to Wayne Rohde for sharing his interview with Martin Kulldorff (pictured) which ran on the Vaccine Court Substack.

By Wayne Rohde

Vaccine Court Substack Interview with Martin Kulldorff

This past week I talked with Martin Kulldorff, infectious disease epidemiologist and biostatistician regarding the recent National Academies of Science, Engineering and Mathematics (NASEM) report that was released recently regarding COVID-19 vaccines and associated injuries.

Martin Kulldorff, previously employed by Harvard Medical School was terminated earlier this year.

My purpose for talking with Martin was for a different concern. But first read and listen to what others who talked to him.

You can read his blog and associated news articles about his termination.

You can listen to a few online interviews herehere

Martin Kulldorff was one of the three chief authors of the Great Barrington Declaration along with Dr. Sunetra Gupta of Oxford University and Dr. Jay Bhattacharya from Stanford University. All three are very brave scholars and researchers. They paid a heavy price for being right and standing up against Pharma and Public Health officials.

My interests were different. I wanted to know about the process of reviewing existing research and studies then compiling into a report much like the Institute of Medicine (IOM) has done for so many years.

National Academies of Science, Engineering and Mathematics (NASEM), the new branded IOM, published a report April 2024 to examine any disease or medical condition associated with all the EUA licensed COVID-19 vaccines administered in the US.

NASEM / IOM has a long history of researching challenging questions of vaccine “safety” beginning with an assessment of the oral polio vaccine in 1977.

When Congress passed the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986 (NCVIA) which created the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP aka The Vaccine Court), the Advisory Commission on Childhood Vaccines (ACCV) and National Vaccine Advisory Committee (NVAC) federal committees, the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) system, it also charged the IOM with reviewing existing literature regarding adverse events associated with the vaccines covered in the NVICP.

Martin Kulldorff has contributed to a previous IOM report from 2013. That report, “The Childhood Immunization Schedule and Safety: Stakeholder Concerns, Scientific Evidence, and Future Studies.”

The IOM invited Martin Kulldorff to write a paper on the study designs for the current childhood schedule. He did. It was a 40-paper published with the IOM report as Appendix D.

Many of us have been confused about his work prior to COVID. Just mentioning anyone’s name associated with an IOM report could bring some negative thoughts.

His paper did not conclude about the safety of the schedule but rather, suggesting several methods to study the schedule effectively.

In the introduction segment of his paper, he writes the following: “Very few post marketing studies have evaluated whether the risk of adverse events depends on the scheduling of the vaccines.”

Immunity from X's Community Notes

IMG_2594Since Elon Musk took over Twitter, now X, we have had much more freedom to speak our minds, our opinions and our truths. (You can find us at @AgeofAutism.) Not just about autism, which itself has unbelievably become controversial thanks to the barrage of nerd-odiversity posts from people appropriating autism to fill some need we can't fathom. But about the obvious elephant in the room - vaccines. Musk created something called, "Community Notes," which I think we'll be seeing more frequently, and we should be using. I think of it as Wikipedia for X. Anyone can become a "Contributor" and comment on any post they want adding context and links. I'm sure pharma has hired a phalanx of nimble fingers to seek out posts about vaccines and vaccines and autism, to add "community" notes. Just check out that photo from an account called @FiveTimesAugust. The Community Note looks familiar. The goods news, is anyone can EDIT the notes. Interesting approach. Now, where's our phalanx?

From X:

Community Notes aim to create a better informed world by empowering people on X to collaboratively add context to potentially misleading posts. Contributors can leave notes on any post and if enough contributors from different points of view rate that note as helpful, the note will be publicly shown on a post. Sign up to become a contributor.

Community Notes are now publicly visible to everyone in the US. For more information, we have included responses to frequently asked questions below, but you can learn more through the Community Notes Guide as well.

This is an open and transparent process, that’s why we’ve made the Community Notes algorithm open source and publicly available on GitHub, along with the data that powers it so anyone can audit, analyze or suggest improvements.

Will RFK, Jr. Drain The Swamp?

PharmaAnne Dachel ran this post on her new Substack - you can subscribe here. We've waited too many election cycles for help to clear our way through the power and influence of the pharmaceutical industry. Its tentacles have wrapped around Americans' health in many ways including obesity, depression, heart disease, and the topic we know best, autism. It's hard not to feel jaded, like Charlie Brown looking at Lucy holding the football. Donald Trump was vociferous in his promise to drain the swamp, and specifically to take a hard look at autism. Joe Biden has not made strong promises, so there were fewer to break. Small comfort. Robert Kennedy is steadfastly moving ahead in the polls. Does he draw from Trump voters? Biden voters? The two party system has delivered precious little to us. If Trump or Biden can't win on their own, that doesn't make a third party candidate a "spoiler."  Instead, it tells us that Americans want more choice.  Ah, yes... choice. As ever, we will not endorse a candidate. Feel free to tell us your thoughts in the comments.

###

In this interview, Robert Kennedy, Jr. outlined what he will do to destroy the control the pharmaceutical industry has over the media in America.

We have the sickest generation of children in our history, and Kennedy wants to reverse this.

I personally see his description of the drug industry’s power over politicians and the news as the message everyone needs to hear. I wrote a book about it in 2014, The Big Autism Cover-Up: How and Why the Media Is Lying to the American Public.

Today, 10 years later, nothing has changed, except that the autism has gone from one in 68 children to now one in every 36. The news industry continues to lie to about every aspect of autism.

Even though autism wasn’t specifically talked about during this interview, it’s clearly one aspect of the culture of corruption, collusion and cover-up rampant in the “kleptocracy” Robert Kennedy described here.

May 3, 2024, Interviewer Joe Polish, founder of Genius Network, talks to Robert Kennedy, Jr.

From The Military Industrial Complex & Big Pharma

Joe Polish:

Why do you think the legacy, untrustable, government co-opted media is so scared of you?

Robert Kennedy, Jr.:

. . . They should be scared of me because I’m going to hurt their revenue streams a lot.

May Day

Maypole_retro

Happy May Day. Did you dance around a May pole as a child? The children in that retro photo surely never heard of autism. Perhaps you attended Catholic school as I did, and placed a crown of flowers on the statue of Mary that was in front of your school? Spring means new life and is about family. Mothers especially. And our babies and children.

April, now called Autism Acceptance Month by many, is taxing. I resent the implication that we do not accept our children. I reject the idea that the world will ever fully accept our children, especially as adults, as much as I wish it were so.

May-day, the international distress signal, is also appropriate today. I looked up the meaning. It is a phonetic version of the French "m'aidez" which means "help me" coined in 1923.

Help all of us.




The Final Day The Final Insult

Trump on RFK
By Kim Rossi
Managing Editor, Age of Autism

"His (Robert Kennedy Jr.'s) views on vaccines are FAKE, as is everything else about his candidacy."


Donald Trump on his Truth Social site on April 26, 2024, when polls began to show that RFK, Jr. was siphoning off votes from Trump, as well as President Biden.

Today is the final day of Autism Whatever Month. We're about six months away from the 2024 election. As early as 2009, Donald Trump said publicly that he realized autism was a skyrocketing problem, and that the CDC vaccine schedule was a likely culprit.

AgeofAutism.com: Trump Speaks: December 28, 2009


In an interview, Donald Trump said he thinks the rising prevalence of autism is related to vaccinations of babies and toddlers. ”’When I was growing up, autism wasn't really a factor," he said. ‘And now all of a sudden, it's an epidemic. Everybody has their theory, and my theory is the shots. They're getting these massive injections at one time. I think it's the vaccinations.’”

He took heat for it, as does anyone who speaks out against CDC, pharma and vaccination. He stood tall. Or so we thought. What did he have to lose?

Nine years ago, during the 2016 election, then candidate Trump promised he would actively investigate pediatric vaccine safety. JB Handley wrote a piece for Age of Autism:


It’s really not that hard: there is a guy running for President who has a viable chance at the Republican nomination who is telling the truth about what happened to my son and several million other children around the world. He is telling this truth despite the unbelievable influence and pressure of the pharmaceutical industry.

We reacted like having a cold glass of water after a long crawl across the desert. And whom was he going to appoint to head up a fearsome investigative vaccine safety commission if he won the 2016 election? Robert Kennedy, Jr., who was actively involved in what was then called The World Mercury Project, the pre-cursor to Children's Health Defense.

BuzzFeed Interviewed Dan Olmsted and JB Handley about Trump's vaccine safety commission with RFK Jr.  

January 2017  - Trump’s potential appointment was strongly welcomed on Wednesday by many in the activist community who believe that excessive vaccination is spurring an “epidemic” of autism and other chronic diseases among children. US autism rates have been rising since the late 1990s, and now 1 in 45 children are diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder, though the CDC has attributed this to changes in diagnoses and surveys. Thimerosal was discontinued as a preservative in children’s vaccines in 1999, though it is now widely considered safe by the medical community. Many activists feel that Kennedy could spearhead a sea change in how decisions about vaccines are made in the US.

The vaccine commission never happened. Whether Trump ignored his campaign promise, was steamrolled by pharma and CDC or some combination of the two is irrelevant today. The man who claims to be all powerful was weak. He sold out children. Our children. We won't even get into the Covid vaccine's Operation Warp Speed, for which Trump takes great pride and credit. 

Kennedy put his hard fought reputation on the line and has taken a drubbing like no other, because as a life long environmental lawyer/activist AND a Kennedy, he was smart enough to realize that a child's body IS its environment.

And now he is running against Donald Trump in 2024.

When Trump ran in 2016, many prominent autism vaccine injury community men and women threw their hat in Trump's ring.  Some made quite a show of it. We certainly wrote about it. Today? The landscape is far more than pharma and pediatric vaccines. Covid turned our rights upside down, as did the Supreme Court Roe v. Wade decision. Americans are now divided on two healthcare bodily rights fronts. It's really quite something, considering killer inflation, war in Ukraine, war in Gaza, social unrest that rivals the Summer of 1968 and the woeful state of mental and physical health in every American from infants to elderly.

President Biden has ignored autism  (all praise to God) but his soft mandates for the Covid vaccine (remember the winter of sickness and death he predicted with such grim chastising?) and the subsequent barrage of sudden death and heart problems came down hard on the nation, opening millions of eyes among those who had never once questioned vaccines.

Now, in 2024, Donald Trump is back to claim the office he believes has been his for the last four years. But he's not just competing against the 2020 victor, whom he despises. He has a second juggernaut adversary who is nipping at both his and Biden's heels.   Trump's preferred method of dealing with enemies is to launch into a narcissistic rage of tirades, shaming, disrespect, ridicule and even outright lies.

So when that Truth Social message above hit social media on Friday, ears perked up. Way up. Trump is worried. Trump says whatever he thinks voters want to hear. That's not new. It's politics. Candidates break promises six days a week and twice on Sundays. But Trump has elevated it to an art form and another eight years of time has been lost where kids could have been protected better.

We're in for a hell of a campaign season. Trump fears RFK, Jr. Biden fears RFK, Jr. The mainstream media is trying it's darnedest to squelch and vilify the campaign's efforts. Kennedy's reaction?  I  quote poet Maya Angelou, "Still I rise."

So we will watch closely as the months tick away to election day in November.  And we will remind candidates, both Elephants and Donkeys alike, we will never forget your promises to our children.

And whether you honored them or turned your back.

(PS) We aren't endorsing any of the candidates. Our readers come from all walks of life and all shades of political colors, red, blue and purple. Thank you.

Kim Rossi has been Managing Editor for Age of Autism since its launch in 2007. She is a single Mom to three beautiful adult daughters with autism.

Isabella Sends Her Regrets


3E22451E-8A89-4230-A9E3-534251D86E4D"Hi, Isabella, let's make a plan to get the Hep vaccine," says CVS in a text to my 23 year old daughter with autism.  No rationale as to if or why she needs a Hep B vaccine. Not even, "Stop in to talk to a pharmacist about your habit of injecting heroin and having wild sex with several men, women and possibly farm animals on a regular basis." I wonder why?

Let's see what "experts" say about Hep B, shall we?

Hepatitis B infection is caused by the hepatitis B virus (HBV). The virus is passed from person to person through blood, semen or othe21438ADB-84F9-4033-B125-ED34F6C6EEEAr body fluids.Common ways that HBV can spread are: Sexual contact.

David Foster Exposes the CDC Measles Blame Game

Measles 2024We're pleased to excerpt an important article from David Foster that clarifies the CDC blame game regarding a cyclical measles resurgence. You can subscribe to David's Substack for free to enjoy his content.

By David Foster

Is Vaccine Hesitancy Causing Measles Outbreaks?

According to the CDC, and as repeated by most media outlets, there is an increased frequency of measles outbreaks this year which is caused by lowered vaccination rates due to "vaccine hesitancy". But contrary to this narrative is the simple fact that uptake of MMR vaccine has remained remarkably consistent over the years, fluctuating between 92% to 95% and this year it is about 93%, so it seems bordering on absurd to claim that a 2% decrease since 2019 is causing measles outbreaks.

Remember the infamous 2014-15 Disneyland measles outbreak, and how it was used to justify SB277 which took away the philosophical exemption from vaccination in California? Were you aware that that 38% of the measles cases tested in the US that year were found to be caused by the vaccine itself?

"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 (38%) were identified as vaccine sequences."

This graphic from the CDC, which I have seen referenced in numerous articles, sure makes it look like measles is terrible this year:

But just scroll down on the same CDC page and you will see that while the number of projected measles cases in 2024 will be somewhat higher than an average year, it does not even come close to years we consider to be problematic, like 2014 and 2019:

Keep in mind we have just been through the annual “flu season”, so it highly unlikely that we will see similar numbers of measles cases continue through the spring and summer months.

The CDC states that vaccination coverage among U.S. kindergartners has decreased from 95.2% during the 2019–2020 school year to 93.1% in the 2022–2023 school year, leaving approximately 250,000 kindergartners at risk each year over the last three years.”

Then the media runs with this narrative with headlines like:

US has already had more measles cases in 2024 than all of 2023

U.S. measles cases rise to at least 64 so far in 2024 — more than all of 2023

US sees surge in measles cases as health experts plead for more vaccinations

See how this works?

Now go back and re-read the previous quote from the CDC about “vaccination coverage”…does anything stand out to you? What was the vaccination rate for measles back in 2019? It was 95.2%, and has dropped to 93.1% in 2022-2023 and this decrease is being blamed for the increased outbreaks in 2024.

Look again at the graph of measles cases per year…2019 was the year with the most measles cases since 2000 (and actually since 1992).

Again, what was the vaccination rate for measles in 2019?  Read the full article with graphics at David Foster's Substack.

The Defender: ‘The Level of Foolishness Here is Unprecedented’: Researchers Pitch ‘One-and-Done’ COVID-Flu Vaccine for Babies

Guinea pig doctorParents have no idea that doctors are using their precious babies and children as guinea pigs. It comes as no surprise. Parents who won't let their children answer the front door, give them an iPhone with information from the four filthiest corners of the globe. Parents who won't let their child taste a sip of wine at the dinner table willingly put them on black box medicines at an early age. So why should they question exalted vaccines?

‘The Level of Foolishness Here is Unprecedented’: Researchers Pitch ‘One-and-Done’ COVID-Flu Vaccine for Babies

Researchers at the University of California, Riverside, proposed a new RNA-based vaccine they said could provide durable protection for infants against COVID-19 and flu with just one dose. Experts warn the untested technology could lead to breakthrough infections, higher mortality rates and potential brain toxicity in babies.

By 

John-Michael Dumais

Researchers are pitching a new vaccine that, according to Forbes, could give infants long-lasting protection from COVID-19 and flu with a single “one-and-done” shot — perhaps even leading to a “universal vaccine.”

The research article, published on April 17 in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) by scientists at the University of California, Riverside (UCR), described how a single dose of a vaccine using “small interfering RNA” (siRNA) molecules demonstrated a “rapid and long-lasting protective immunity” against a lethal virus challenge in immune-deficient mice.

The researchers proposed that an siRNA-based flu vaccine could protect infants without relying on maternal antibodies, according to a UCR press release.

They are considering a nasal spray delivery method instead of the typical intramuscular shot, as “respiratory infections move through the nose, so a spray might be an easier delivery system.”

Experts who spoke with The Defender raised concerns about the lack of human trials and the novel technology’s safety and long-term effects on vulnerable populations.

“The level of foolishness here is unprecedented,” said Brian Hooker, Ph.D., chief scientific officer at Children’s Health Defense. “The immune systems of infants ​​simply cannot tolerate this type of infective agent,” he said. “It will lead to breakthrough infections and higher levels of mortality.” Read the rest of the article at THE DEFENDER from Children's Health Defense,

Supreme Court Observations

Supreme courtBy Katie Wright

After listening to the Supreme Court Opening arguments for Murthy vs. Missouri, government censorship of Americans via social media, I started thinking about the 2022 vaccine mandate case. In 2022 the Supreme Court heard a case about the legality of Biden demanding a national workplace vaccine mandate. I was reminded of numerous emotionally driven, histrionic and just flat out really wrong arguments made by a number of Supreme Court Justices. I was shocked to hear the very same justices make similar emotionally, not factually, driven arguments in 2024. Their outsized sense righteous fear was still on display. Let’s revisit 2022!!  

Thankfully, the majority of the court decided such a law was not within the President’s powers. 

A sampling of specious but stridently delivered covid claims by Justices Breyer, Kagan and Sotomayor.

Justice Breyer: “There were 750,000 million new covid cases yesterday! Hospitals are full to the max as they have never been before! 60%, 70%, 80% of those with covid in the hospital are unvaccinated! It is in the public interest to mandate covid vaccine.”

Justice Kagan: “People are dying every day! More people will die tomorrow! This is the biggest health crisis this country has ever faced! Mandates necessary to lessen the risk!

Experts have decided this is best. OSHU has expert. The regulators constantly think of the risk benefit to this vaccine (if only!!), Clearly one risk (being unvaccinated) vastly outweighs the other (being vaccinated!)”

Justice Sotomayor: “Deaths are at an unexpected amount! 100,000 American children are very sick, on respirators in hospitals!”

Missing autistic boy found, pulled from Lancaster Creek by first responder

by: Ryan Nadeau

LANCASTER COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — A missing autistic child was found and rescued from a creek in Lancaster County on Wednesday.

According to Lancaster County Emergency Services (LCES), at about 4:40 p.m. on Wednesday, April 3, multiple local emergency crews responded to the area of Shore Drive for report of a missing boy with autism. Upon arrival, they quickly began to search the area for the child.

“Through training, it was recognized that persons with autism are typically drawn to water,” the Facebook post made about this incident reads.

Lancaster Creek was identified as the closest body of water. Crews reportedly found the boy in the creek, about ten feet from the shore.

According to LCES, one of the EMS providers at the scene, Alex Symons, went into the creek and pulled the child from the water. He was looked over by EMS for any possible injuries before being reunited with his family.

Based on real-life events, comes the corporate thriller, Protocol 7. Alexis Koprowski, a devoted mother and small-town family lawyer, Adrian Jay, a renegade doctor exiled from the medical profession, and Steve Schilling, a virologist at a prominent vaccine laboratory turned corporate whistleblower, work together to hold a large pharmaceutical corporation accountable for allegedly fraudulent test results behind a failing mumps vaccine. Protocol 7 takes us behind the corporate curtain, exposing a chain of command that devolves responsibility, prioritizes profits over people, and fosters an amoral mindset of “just following orders.”




 

An Autism Lament 16 Years Later

WeepThis dark poem appeared on Age of Autism in 2008.  Here we are, 16 years later, half way through Autism month, and the author has even more worry than she did so many years ago. As do we all.  April is Autism Agony Month for many.  Oh, and your taxes are due.

Autism Twins

My son was kidnapped at shotpoint.
A twin left in his place.
A weaker body.
A shadow self.

He is a sweet, sadder child,
who tantrums and screams and rolls on the ground.
Who is scared. In pain.
Mourning who he used to be.
I can see this in his eyes.

He misses having a body that works.
And he misses his laser-fast brain
And chuckling at his own jokes.

He used to work the  room
A little politician
Grinning at everyone he saw.
Playing tug of war with the dogs
Experimenting with the piano
Piano and dogs now, he leaves,
utterly alone.

And when I spend too much
Love and dollars and time
to free him,
Am I forgetting
The one who is left
Who is still here
Who needs to just be
A child
sometimes?

He needs me
to stop mourning,
He needs me to celebrate him
and I do, I do celebrate him.
If this is all he can ever be, it's enough, and I love him forever, still.
But  how can I stop mourning, and how can I stop trying to rescue him,
When his struggles remind me of his missing self.
He is his own shadow.

Is his twin disappeared, forever?
Or is he still there?
Locked in a neuron forest in his own brain.

If he is gone forever, unsaveable, dead,
How do I know for sure?
If he is gone forever,
I need to move on.
I need to let go.
I need to embrace what IS.

But when I embrace what is,
And accept that this may be all he can be,
And let him roll aimlessly on the sand
And cancel therapy for today
putting the flashlight down for a while
who else will carry on the search?

He does something startling.
He's back for a moment.
A glimpse!--is that his twin,  over there, hiding behind that last tree in the grove?
the tree I was too tired to walk to a moment ago?
Will we find him again
in the therapy I didn't try?
the supplement I forgot to give?
the new idea even I scoffed at?
what if we give up one moment too soon
the moment right before
we were about to find him?

Kennedy's War With The Cult of Vaxists

Independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has repeatedly stated that he intends to end the capture of federal regulatory agencies by the industries the agencies are supposed to regulate. 

By Louis Conte, Headlines Editor, The Kennedy Beacon, April 8, 2024

Independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has repeatedly stated that he intends to end the capture of federal regulatory agencies by the industries the agencies are supposed to regulate. Kennedy’s plan to reign in corporate capture is critical to ending the nation’s epidemic of chronic disease.

RFK Jr. recently posted on X that he intends to protect Americans and not Big Pharma. Kennedy notes that the CDC responded to a Freedom of Information request by an investigative journalist about a study which evaluated the connection between myocarditis and Covid vaccination with 148 blank pages.

According to the CDC, Covid vaccines are safe and effective, but the public is not allowed to review the data on whether they cause people to suddenly die from cardiac arrest.

UK Labour Plan to Steal Children’s Medical Records if Elected

15F34E64-AED3-44B0-A4AD-8EC070B206FABy John Stone

The policy of putting children’s medical records on a national database was casually dropped on to the British political agenda by Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer (pictured shaking hands with Bill Gates) on Monday opening the way for medical harassment, more pressure over vaccination etc.: the news went out over social media. This policy would obviously take its place with other coercive attempts of the state to seize personal information and autonomy under the guise of modernisation and convenience. Starmer is also known as a keen supporter of the World Economic Forum and has connections with the so-called Center for Countering Digital Hate, which has been flexing its muscles on both sides of the Atlantic notably over vaccine information. It is presently the expectation that Sir Keir will be Prime Minister before the end of the year under the uni-party system.

The Forbidden Scientific Study That Will Change Everything

Your rightsBy Dr. William H. Gaunt, NMD

Former New York Yankees catcher and inadvertent philosopher Yogi Berra once said: “It is difficult to make predictions, especially about the future.” Yogi was correct, but we will still try to predict the outcome of this forbidden scientific study.

What is this study that will change everything?

It is a retrospective study comparing the broad health outcomes of thousands of fully vaccinated children with that of thousands of unvaccinated children. If the big pharma vaccine agenda is correct, this study will show that vaccinated children are healthier than unvaccinated children. If our prediction is correct, it will reveal that unvaccinated children are far healthier overall than fully vaccinated children.

Where can researchers find the health records of thousands of vaccinated and unvaccinated children?                                                                    

It is called the Vaccine Safety DataLink (VSD). It contains the vaccine and health records of millions of Americans. This information has come from several large HMOs (Health Maintenance Organizations) in the U.S. beginning in 1990. The vast majority of children in the U.S. are fully or partially vaccinated. Only about 1% are totally unvaccinated. There are plenty of fully vaccinated children for such a study. The challenge is to find the health records of thousands of unvaccinated children. The VSD contains sufficient data on both vaccinated and unvaccinated children to do such a large study. The problem is that VSD data is locked up tight by the CDC. Independent researchers are not allowed to access the VSD for this type of study. The CDC is dead set on preventing this type of study from being done.

Across the Table

Iep
Note:  After you read Cathy's post, we're sharing two "must have" books from Skyhorse and the Children's Health Defense imprint about special education and a book coming out in August that breaks down the IEP process from Connecticut-based advocate Julie Swanson and special education lawyer Jennifer Laviano.  

By Cathy Jameson

I’ve had the opportunity to be on the other side of the table observing the IEP process.  It’s no easier than being on the side I’ve always been on – on the side with my son.  The prep work, the research, the necessary documentation, it all takes hours.  It also takes courage.

When Ronan was in school, we had all manner of IEP experiences.  From the most incredible meetings to the extremely tiring ones that dragged on for hours, I am glad that those are behind us.  During that time, I learned not just about special education but how to truly advocate.  Some of my son’s teams advocated with me, and I’m very grateful for that Dream Team.  But others, well, I can’t talk about them without getting a little upset. 

Knowing that a family fresh in the IEP world needs great support, I thought back to those tough days.  Would I want them to experience the very worst that special education has to offer?  No way.  I want them to know everything they could ask for.  So, I worked hard to be the advocate I wished that I had when it was just me against Ronan’s team. 

That sounds terrible – me against them. 

But that happened, and I know it still happens to some families.

Not on my watch.

So, I researched for a child who isn’t mine.  I advocated for parents who have barely put their feet on the IEP path.  I documented the pros, the cons, the ‘what ifs’, and the ‘what can be’ with them and for them.  I shared everything I could and then followed up so they wouldn’t feel alone.  That part was always hard, the hours and days after a meeting.  Even after a good meeting, I’d feel so overwhelmed.  There was always more to do!  So, I made sure to follow up, to be available, to say…Hey mama, I’m here, we’re here, and we truly want to help…

I didn’t cry when the young mom did as the meeting wrapped up, but my heart ached for her during the meeting and long after it.  How I ached to see that mom cry.  I could see myself in her - young, hopeful, and wanting.  She wants so much for her child to be able to stay in general education without supports.  Right now, though, that is out of reach.

Right now, the parents are rethinking things.  Next school year will look different for them.  The following year likely will, too.  Could their child be in gen ed without supports?  I can’t say, and I won’t say.  It’s not my place.  My place right now is across the table from them with other educators and advocates.  I never thought I’d find myself there.  Now that I am, I want to be everything my son’s worst teams weren’t for him.  I want to be part of that old Dream Team we had once – they were helpful, truthful, kind, and compassionate.  If I can give back what others failed to give me, it will be worth every emotion that comes with advocating for a stranger’s child with special needs.

 The definitive guide for parents of children with disabilities is out. This book is authored by two special education experts and draws on decades of experience from the front lines of special education advocacy. The authors, Jennifer Laviano and Julie Swanson, detail a strong, practical, and results oriented perspective that helps parents cut through the fog of special education to get the services their children deserve. "Our bottom line is parents are often ineffective at advocating for their child because they don't know their rights," said Jennifer Laviano, co-author and special education attorney. "We see it time and again: The child doesn't get what he or she needs because the parents don't know what they don't know. This book looks to change that," Laviano added.Your Special Education Rights demystifies the federal laws related to public school children with disabilities and explains how school districts often ignore or circumvent the law.

Mass Poisoning

2402933F-B20F-4364-A440-BBAA2009C125By Anne Dachel

I was surprised to read Toby Rogers’ piece on Substack, What does a society in the midst of a mass poisoning look like? on March 28th.  Surprised, because he mentioned my website, Loss of Brain Trust in the introduction.

 I’ve been wanting to write this article for a while. It’s really the whole point of my Substack — to describe a society in the midst of a mass poisoning. Anne Dachel at Loss of Brain Trust does the best-in-class job of tracking the costs of vaccine injury throughout the developed world (with more than 7,000 articles posted to date). But my goal is to describe the sociology and political economy of it all — the ways in which vaccine injury shapes and indeed warps all aspects of society and culture today.

(This also woke me up to the fact that I hadn’t changed the number of stories posted for several years, and now it’s 9,000!)

The focus of Toby’s article was the fact that everywhere we look, we see the explosion in chronic illnesses  and neurological disorders, especially in children. These are the result of vaccine injury, or what autism activist Louis Conte calls, The Great Poisoning.

Toby wrote:

If you regularly read my Substack you already know the basics — autism, ADHD, autoimmune disorders including arthritis, life-threatening allergies, asthma, Alzheimer’s, childhood cancers, diabetes, eczema, seizure disorders, sex dysphoria, sudden infant death syndrome, and sudden adolescent/adult death syndrome are all vaccine injuries. . . .

In our society chronic illness is normalized and celebrated while iatrogenic deaths and mass shootings are greeted with “Oh gee golly shucks whatever could be causing this!?”

So that’s a “Level 1” understanding of what a society in the midst of a mass poisoning looks like. But the impact of vaccine injury goes well beyond that to shape all facets of culture.

Toby continued, linking vaccine injury to lower fertility rates around the world. He pointed out changes in our everyday lives clearly the result of people who cannot function normally. This includes things like sensory friendly accommodations now common in retail businesses like movie theaters and restaurants.

Autism Research from Wuhan? For Real?

Chinese Finger Trap
Get it?

By Anne Dachel

As I was scouring the news for the latest autism developments, I ran across a number of stories about autism research.

There have been lots of things associated with autism over the past 20 years, possible triggers that could affect a susceptible child. Nothing is ever conclusive, and I like to refer to this stuff as autism busywork. 

As expected, in time for Autism Awareness/Acceptance Month in April, I’ve seen reports linking autism to household chemicals and to toxic plastic.

AND one from the U.K. Daily Mail linked autism to moms who drink too much coffee and eat a high fat diet.

The title was, Now scientists suggest women avoid coffee while pregnant because of links to AUTISM in their child.

Scientists are cautioning women against drinking too much coffee during pregnancy after finding caffeine may raise the risk of autism in their child.

It’s Time to End Medical Tyranny

Vaccine Choice CanadaA common sense conversation from Ted Kuntz of Vaccine Choice Canada.

It's Time to End Medical Tyranny


By Ted Kuntz

The use of mandates for any medical intervention is abhorrent. Forcing a medical treatment upon an unwilling patient is deplorable in a society that purportedly honours individual rights and bodily sovereignty. Whether to accept or reject a medical treatment should always be a choice.

Vaccinations are no exception. Except they are.

For some reason we have been convinced that vaccines are an exception to the rule of bodily sovereignty and medical choice. That informed consent, which requires the choice be voluntary and without coercion or intimidation, is not applicable to the injection of foreign substances into our body.

And while every health professional agrees to a ‘Code of Conduct’ that recognizes a patient’s right to informed consent and bodily sovereignty, these Codes of Conduct seem to be of no effect when the medical product is labelled a “vaccine”.

How did this happen?

How is it that that the medical profession says one thing and does another when it comes to vaccination? How is it that doctors, nurses, public health officers, and regulatory agencies tasked with the responsibility to hold medical practitioners to account when they violate their professional code of conduct systematically ignore this responsibility with vaccination?

How is it that cognitive dissonance, the holding of two contradictory beliefs at the same time, is so prevalent in the medical profession?

To add insult to injury, quite literally, vaccine manufacturers have been granted immunity from liability for injury and death caused by their products. The medical industry is able to maim and kill without consequence.

And medical professionals, in spite of knowing all this, are complicit with enforcing vaccine mandates and violating a patient’s right to informed consent and medical choice.

When one stands back and observes this incongruous behaviour it becomes rather disconcerting how virtually an entire profession, with shockingly few opponents, actively participates in this coercion with nary a moment of hesitation or caution.

In a recent email discussion, independent researcher Elizabeth Hart states: 

“There should never have been protection for the vaccine manufacturers. There should never have been vaccine mandates.

There should always have been voluntary informed consent for vaccination, as with all medical interventions. And no need whatsoever for exemptions.

That's it. Simple.

Exemptions and mandates should not exist, because they preclude voluntary informed consent.

What is it about this that medical practitioners don't understand?

A simple  ‘no thank you’ should suffice.

A more egregious example of this medical tyranny is Australia. In 2016 the government instituted the No Jab, No Pay Law to incentivise/coerce the vaccination of children. Those parents who exercised their right and responsibility to medical choice were denied government benefits for making what government and the vaccine cartel deemed the wrong decision. Families with limited financial resources were forced to choose between food and rent or their right to refuse a liability-free product . And the medical profession went along with this legalized extortion.

The damage that has been done by imposing mandates and providing vaccine manufacturers with protection from liability is evidenced by an ever increasing vaccine schedule and a rapidly diminishing state of health of our children. Immunological and neurological conditions which were once rare are now common place.

And the fact that medical practitioners have gone along with this massive violation for more than a century, largely without question, speaks volumes about whether our medical system is about health or profit. One readily reaches the conclusion that it’s all about the money.

It’s time to have the professional Code of Conduct and actions aligned.

It’s time to hold vaccine manufacturers accountable for vaccine injury and death.

It’s time to end all vaccine coercion.

It’s time that those who participate in medical assault and battery are held to account.

It’s time to stop harming our children and adults under the guise of health.

It’s time the medical profession upheld the moral foundation of individual rights, bodily sovereignty and medical choice.

It’s time to end medical tyranny.

CUREodiversity

Cureodiversity
April is coming. Neurodiversity has had their day and their say. They do not have a right to squelch us.  Our children will ALWAYS deserve a cure for their autism. Define cure however you'd like. To whatever degree you would like. Take as much, as little as you’d like. Or none at all.  We live in a fluid world, after all. Think autism. Think CUREodiversity. That's it. That's the post. A new word I might have coined. If you like it. Run with it.

Regressive Autism Gets Lost In a World of Self-Diagnosed Autism

Big lieAnne Dachel has been covering the "big lie" about autism (lies, actually) since our inception. did you just read that Tallulah Bankhead (I mean Willis, even I'm not Tallulah Bankhead old) has "come out" saying she is autistic? One of the worst lies has been the denial of biological, regressive autism. So many AofA families watched their thriving, vibrant, sharp as tacks toddlers plunge into the deep waters of autism. As April approaches, we solemnly swear that we will be up to ALL good. We will speak our truth, to use the parlance of the day. Autism sucks. Most of all, for the person with autism, who has to surmount so many challenges every minute of every day. We will NEVER allow the mainstream world to forget our kids or us, the beleaguered parents from a generation ago who were WOKE long before it was twisted into an unrecognizable mirage of denial and gaslighting.  Anne's comments are not italicized.

By Anne Dachel

Mar 13th Healthline published the article, What Is Regression in Autism?

The message was clear: REGRESSION IS NORMAL for those with autism, both in children and adults.

Autistic regression refers to a loss of previously acquired skills or a backtracking of developmental milestones. In young children, it may represent autism onset. In older children and adults, it may be a sign of autistic burnout.

There are a variety of skills that can be lost.

Regression may become evident across multiple areas, including:

language

social skills

emotional regulation

motor function

self-directed behavior

It’s just part of having autism.

“Regression in autism is exactly what the name implies,” Lacey Cottingham, a licensed clinical social worker from Raleigh, North Carolina, told Healthline. “You are autistic. You were able to do a set of things, and then you find you can’t do those things anymore.”

Autistic regression may occur after an established ASD diagnosis, in what’s called “late regression,” or it may be one way ASD presents during early childhood and that leads to diagnosis.

And it is common in autism.

A 2019 review indicates that for approximately one-third of children, ASD onset is signified by the loss of established skills after typical development.

We really don’t know why regression happens.

Why regression happens in ASD isn’t clear. When it comes to early onset symptoms, some experts believe developmental regression may represent a subtype of ASD.

A multicenter study from 2022, for example, suggests regressive ASD is associated with more severe core symptoms, lower neurocognitive developmental levels, and a higher need for support than nonregressive ASD.

Experiencing regression after an ASD diagnosis may develop from autistic burnout, even in children, says Myszak, though it’s more likely a factor for older children than younger ones. . . .

Learn the signs.

According to a 2023 review, language and social skills are common areas where regression in autistic children becomes evident.

Signs of regression may include:

loss of previously used words or phrases

overall decreased communication

new challenges in forming sentences

grammar mistakes

reverting to infantile sounds, like cooing or babbling

not understanding communication from others

social withdrawal

reduced eye contact

not acknowledging social cues

lack of interest in peer engagement

not wanting to share or take turns

What can a parent do?

“Speaking very broadly and generally, if you can clear up whatever led to the anxiety or stress, you’ll fix the regression,” Cottingham said.

What age is autism regression common?

 According to 2021 research, early onset autistic regression typically occurs between ages 18–24 months, while late regression has a mean onset of 13 years.

 Can regressive autism be stopped?

Is Measles a Real Threat or More Fear Mongering?

Is Measles a Real Threat or More Fear Mongering?

The mainstream media and pro-vaccine advocates in public health and government would have you believe we are at serious risk of a measles epidemic as a result of “vaccine hesitancy”. There is no doubt there is a significant increase in parents questioning the vaccine narrative. Recent polls reveal that 1 in 6 parents say they are “really against” vaccinating their children, a four-fold increase from 2019. There is also a significant increase in the number of Canadians who oppose mandatory childhood vaccination and say that it should be a parents’ decision. The question is whether the risk to the health and safety of our children is “vaccine hesitancy”, or the risk is blind faith in the vaccine industry?

The vaccine industry would have you believe that all vaccines are safe and effective; vaccines are responsible for the significant decline in mortality in the last century; vaccines are necessary for our children’s health; and adverse reactions to vaccines are rare. None of these statements are supported by the evidence. These statements are marketing propaganda masquerading as science. The vaccine industry would also have you believe that measles is a serious illness that puts our children’s lives at risk, and that if everyone simply vaccinated their children, then measles would be eradicated. These statement are also not supported by the evidence.

Measles – A Childhood Rite of Passage

Prior to the introduction of the measles vaccine in 1963, measles was considered a childhood rite of passage. Virtually all children contracted measles. It was a time to stay home and to be cared for by one’s parents. They even made a Brady Bunch TV program about the benefits of getting measles. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5289k-dbOMY) Those of us old enough to have experienced childhood measles are mystified by the fear mongering regarding contracting measles.

For those who have only experienced measles through pharmaceutical marketing campaigns, measles presents as a whole body rash, fever, congestion, a cough, and pinkeye, symptoms which last about a week. Measles is contagious and prior to vaccination almost all children contracted measles.

While the measles vaccine may have been effective in reducing the incidence of measles, the government and vaccine manufacturers refuse to conduct vaccinated vs unvaccinated studies to confirm that the vaccine is responsible for the decline in measles cases. As the medical industry is quick to declare when injury is reported following vaccination – correlation does not equal causation, meaning just because the incidence of measles has declined following the introduction of the vaccine does not mean that the vaccine is responsible.

The real question is whether the intense vaccination of our children has resulted in improved health. The evidence would suggest otherwise. Rather than witness an increase in the health as the number of vaccines increased from a handful in the early 1980’s to more than 100 doses before age 18 years today (if the COVID vaccines are included), we have observed a steady and dramatic deterioration in children’s health. Disease conditions such as asthma, allergies, autism, cancer, diabetes, ADHD, eczema, life-threatening anaphylaxis and other neurological and immunological conditions which were considered rare in previous generations are now disconcertingly common. It is estimated that more than 50% of children today have a chronic health condition. The dramatic decline in health mirrors the dramatic increase in childhood vaccines as a result of vaccine manufacturers being granted legal and financial immunity for injury and death caused by their products in 1986.

The fact is that vaccine manufacturers are not required to demonstrate that vaccines reduce the rate of disease contraction, contagion, complication, or mortality.  Vaccines are the only drug where evidence of improved health and the absence of harm are not required prior to approval. There is no substantive evidence that children receiving the current vaccine schedule are healthier than those who don’t.

The Measles Vaccine

When the measles vaccine was introduced in 1963 the promise was that one shot would confer life-long immunity, and that measles would be eradicated by 1967. We now know that neither of these marketing claims were true. The vaccine does not confer life-long immunity as outbreaks regularly occur in fully vaccinated populations. And measles is still with us today after more than 60 years of vaccination.

What is not considered in the rush to inject every child with every available vaccine is what is lost because of vaccination. It is rarely admitted by vaccine proponents that recovery from natural exposure most often confers life-long immunity. More critically is that mothers who have been vaccinated for measles do not transfer long-lasting maternal antibodies to their infants which protects the infant in the first few months of life. This means that infants of measles vaccinated mothers are at increased risk.

Also not acknowledged is that while measles was once a serious illness in past centuries, the mortality from measles declined 98.5% and measles was no longer considered a public health threat before the vaccine was introduced. To describe measles as a “killer disease”, as if that is true today, is dishonest. Measles can be life threatening in third world countries for children suffering from malnutrition and contaminated water. Measles is not a serious illness in first world countries such as Canada. Using third world data to convince parents in a first world country is fraud.

What is also not acknowledged is that the measles vaccine is given in combination with two or more other live viruses – mumps and rubella. There is substantial evidence that the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine is causing neurological damage in some children and that administering the vaccine prior to three years can cause regressive autism.  Autism has become epidemic with more than 1 in 36 children diagnosed. [1] There is also a failure to note that vaccination with live virus vaccines can cause viral shedding, meaning the vaccinated can be a vector of measles outbreaks.

Is the Measles Vaccine Safe?

When the mainstream media and vaccine industry claim that the vaccine is “safe” without any qualifiers,  they are misleading the public. Would the public agree the measles vaccine is “safe” when as of May 31, 2023 there have been more than 109,499 reports of measles vaccine reactions made to the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System in the United States, including 547 related deaths. [2] 

Further, a US Health and Human Services study acknowledged that less than 1% of vaccine adverse events are reported.[3] This means the number of injuries and deaths could realistically be 100 times the reported numbers. If so, does 10,949,900 reactions and 54,700 deaths sound safe? The undisputed fact is that the safety of the measles vaccine has not been proven against a true placebo.  Thus the claims that the vaccine has been proven safe is false.

The media and public health would have you believe there is consensus in the medical community that the measles vaccine is “safe and effective and necessary”. There is not consensus.

Dr. Richard Moskovitz, a family physician with more than 50 years of experience deems the measles vaccine as “an unhealthy reprogramming of the immune system that trades of the acute, vigorous responses to infection” in favor of “weaker, but ongoing, chronic responses that have rendered us a lot sicker than we would have been has we simply left well enough alone.” [4]

Rudolf Steiner states that children need to go through certain acute inflammatory illnesses in order to develop a strong immune system and a healthy body. Dr. Thomas Cowan states – “Children who are supported to work through these healing crises are invariably healthier and more resilient than children in whom these inflammatory crises have been suppressed with vaccines, antibiotics, and anti-inflammatory drugs.” [5]

The Rise of Vaccine Hesitancy

The media would have us believe that “vaccine hesitancy” is a danger to society. We see it otherwise. At Vaccine Choice Canada, we view the increase in parents asking questions about vaccine safety, efficacy and necessity as an indication that parents are doing their homework. Vaccination is a complex medical decision. The reality is that almost all modern diseases have their origin in a disturbed immune system. No other drug intervenes in the immune system as intensively as vaccines, and the effects of vaccination are irreversible. It is critical that parents understand the significance of this medical intervention and the risks involved.

The vaccine industry greatly exaggerates the risk of contracting diseases targeted by vaccines. Measles is a classic example of the hype common with vaccine proponents. The vaccine industry and the media present as if every case of measles is a life-threatening condition. This is false advertising. The reality is that permanent injury and death from measles is exceedingly rare in a developed country like Canada. Neil Rau, an infectious disease specialist, and Dr. Richard Schabas, MD, Ontario’s former Chief Medical Officer, stated in an October 2018 article – ‘Stop the Hysteria Over Measles Outbreaks’ that the media-fueled hysteria is unwarranted. [6]

“The borderline hysteria fueled by the media and public health that greets a few cases is unwarranted. . . At current rates, Canada can expect to see a death from acute measles about once every hundred years or so.”

The vaccine industry also communicates the message that our children would not experience illness if they were fully vaccinated. In 2019, the New Brunswick government introduced legislation to remove personal belief and religious exemptions because of 11 cases of measles in the province. Their argument was that all children must be vaccinated, even against their wishes, in order to prevent measles. 

It was later revealed that 9 of the 11 children that contracted measles were fully vaccinated, and 1 was partially vaccinated. Only 1 child was unvaccinated. The Chief Medical Officer refused to make this information available to legislators contemplating the legislation and it was only released through a freedom of information request.

Vaccine hesitancy is responsible parents doing their due diligence. And what parents are finding is that the claims that vaccines are safe, effective and necessary are wanting.

The Kennedy Beacon on Biden & Trump’s Endorsement of Covid Cancer Vaccines

While Biden and Trump Promote COVID Vaccines as a Cure for Cancer, Kennedy Calls for Debate about Vaccine Harm

By Louis Conte, The Kennedy Beacon

Mar 11

During his State of the Union speech, President Biden made the misleading claim, “the vaccines that saved us from COVID are now being used to beat cancer.” President Trump immediately echoed the claim on Truth Social. 

Those who heard this false information might be encouraged to get more boosters, in the hope that the COVID-19 vaccine can prevent or treat cancer, but the opposite appears to be true. As Dr. Peter McCullough reported to Dr. Drew, a new kind of “turbo cancer” has appeared since the time the vaccines were rolled out. DNA contaminants that are known carcinogens have been identified in the shots, which led Joseph Ladapo, Florida’s surgeon general, to call for a halt to the vaccine.

As fact checkers were quick to point out, what neither Biden nor Trump appears to understand is that it is the vaccine’s delivery system that is being considered for other kinds of treatments, not the vaccine itself. 

In fact, that system was first invented to deliver synthetic mRNA to cancer cells, but after a number of decades, it failed to prove effective for that purpose – as Robert Malone, one of the inventors of the technology, has explained at length – and it was repurposed for vaccines. 

While it is true that the potentially lucrative patented mRNA delivery system is being reconsidered for use against cancers, despite past failures, Biden’s and Trump’s comments appear to be attempts to reframe the failed vaccines in the minds of consumers. 

However, many Americans seem to be aware of vaccine adverse reactions, despite censorship sponsored by the Biden administration, described by Michael Shellenberger as Orwellian. As the CDC dashboard shows, people are walking away from these products. 

Both President Biden and former president Trump are trying to take credit for a vaccine that has caused a public health disaster and cost an estimated 17 million excess deaths worldwide, according to Correlation, a nonprofit research organization. Big Pharma, as OpenSecrets informs us, has donated substantially to both establishment parties.  Read MORE at The Kennedy Beacon HERE.

We mind. We matter.

25E2DB6D-FD88-41AA-A2D9-5D0280774F89As April approaches, I was thinking about how autism has fallen off the radar for the Presidential candidates. If it was ever there. Donald Trump paid what we now know was lip service to families when he ran in 2016. President Biden might have heard the word "autism" during his 8 years as Vice President under a President who ushered in the era of neurodiversity that all but supplanted the DSM version of autism the AofA family knows all too well.

Maybe it's a good thing that they are ignoring us. What has any politician done to protect and help our families? Schools are OK thanks to the decades old IDEA that mandated schooling for special education students. ABA is the "gold standard" in schools, even if many perceive it as pyrite. Students can stay in school to at least age 22. But then adulthood hits, and the cliff drops off steeply. Adult services are NOT mandated and so, are non-existent for many. Wait lists are years and even decades long. Funding is spotty, as most Departments of Developmental Services are predicated on IQ under 70. People with autism fall into a crevasse - IQ too high for services and behaviors too high to be accepted into most programming. Employment rates are low. Colleges are just starting to offer supports. Families bear the burden. Housing is a pink unicorn. All at a time when grandparents are in their eighties and beyond, and parents are in their fifties and beyond. Such a cheery picture!

Let's think about what we can do in April to make our kids part of the conversation again.

Dr. Bret Weinstein's Dire Warning

Cautionary_warning_--_CautionOur health shouldn't be a partisan issue.  And yet, it is. AofA'ers know that the CDC has been no friend to us.

By Anne Dachel

The Rubin Report covered the recent Senate panel testimony of Dr. Bret Weinstein. Notice the comments about trust in the pronouncements from the CDC. Sadly, what many of us know about the corruption, collusion and cover-up of the CDC is true of our federal agencies across the board.

Bret Weinstein Issues a Dire Warning to Senate Panel

https://www.youtube.com/watch?app=desktop&v=5cVWKtOWVzk

Bret Weinstein, PhD, former professor of evolutionary biology, testified before a U.S. Senate panel, and his words were profound. I hope some Senators listening to his comments realize how dire things really are. Some excerpts:

Weinstein: I’m as certain of it as I am of anything. We are being systematically blinded.  . . .

I believe we must zoom out if we are to understand the pattern that we are gathered here to explore because the pattern is larger than federal health agencies and the cartel.

If we do zoom out and ask, what are they hiding, the answer becomes as obvious as it is disturbing.

THEY ARE HIDING EVERYTHING.

It will be jarring for many to hear a scientist speak with such certainty. It should be jarring. We are trained to present ideas with caution as hypotheses in need of a test, but in this case, I have tested the idea, and I am as certain of it as I am of anything. 

We are being systemically blinded. It is the only explanation I have encountered that will not only describe the present, but also in my experience, predicts the future with all but perfect accuracy.

The pattern is a simple one. You can see it clearly and test it yourself. Every single institution dedicated to public truth seeking is under simultaneous attack.

Clowns To The Left of Me, Jokers To The Right

2024 election"Stuck in the middle with you!" I goofed saying it was from the wrong band. Got a great correction: 

Not Steve Miller Band

"Stuck in the Middle with You" (sometimes known as "Stuck in the Middle") is a song written by Scottish musicians Gerry Rafferty and Joe Egan and performed by their band Stealers Wheel.

 Michael Smerconish uses it as his theme song on his POTUS Sirius 124 channel daily show. Michael talks politics as straight down the middle as anyone today.

On Super Tuesday, the 2024 election slate was sealed. Donald Trump will run against President Joseph Biden. No Labels has yet to field a candidate. Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. is running as a third party candidate.

We've followed 4 elections since our inception.  Here are a few examples:

OBAMA AND CLINTON ON AUTISM, VACCINES, RESEARCH OBAMA AND CLINTON ON AUTISM, VACCINES, RESEARCH March 3, 2008

Advocating in America for Autism: How We Met President Obama! Sept 4, 2012

Obama: "I am not for selective vaccination." April 24, 2012

Autism Advocates Met with President Elect Trump Last August November 14, 2016


I can not recall an election where autism was less important in the dialog. And yet to many of us here, it's the first thing we think of when we wake, and the last "thing " we kiss goodnight when we go to sleep. While we don't endorse candidates. We encourage polite (heated is fine) discourse. What topics are the most important to you?

Everything Old Is Sort of New

HgFrom the "Everything old is new again files, and yet, not....quite....complete.

Findings Show Mercury During the Postnatal Period Is Especially Harmful

From Safeminds: A recent systematic review has underscored the role of mercury (Hg) exposure in the onset of autism spectrum disorder (ASD), particularly when such exposure occurs during the postnatal period. According to the findings, infants are highly susceptible to toxins and heavy metals like Hg during the postnatal phase, potentially leading to neurological impairment and DNA damage. The review further revealed elevated levels of Hg in the blood, hair, and urine of children diagnosed with ASD who were exposed to environments with heightened Hg pollution in air and water. This increase in Hg levels may be attributed, in part, to compromised glutathione (GSH) antioxidant mechanisms and deficiencies in metallothionein (MT) proteins, which are responsible for the elimination of toxic metals from the body. Failure to excrete metals properly can result in heightened oxidative stress and inflammation, exacerbating autism symptoms. Additionally, the review highlights the impact of oral antibiotic use on altering intestinal flora, leading to the conversion of Hg into methylmercury (MeHg), a potent neurotoxin capable of crossing physiological barriers and causing developmental and neurological damage. Notably, many infants later diagnosed with ASD have a history of oral antibiotic intake. The authors acknowledge the controversial nature of their findings, as some studies in the review found a positive correlation between Hg levels and autism, while others did not. To further elucidate Hg’s impact during pre- and post-natal periods, the authors advocate for pre-clinical research using ASD animal models to investigate associated brain changes. They also emphasize the importance of studying the altered excretory systems observed in individuals with autism.

Spring Weather Means More Opportunities for Autism Elopement (Wandering)

MortalityTH-236x300As the weather grows warmer, the opportunity for danger grows stronger. People with autism, from toddlers to adults, can be prone to elopement, wandering. For some, they bolt, take off and run away from caregivers. For others, they walk away from what most people would consider a safety zone, and often, never return. AofA'ers know the exhausting hyper-vigilance required day in and day out. No organization covers wandering, and helps families and caregivers, like The National Autism Association. We invite you to bookmark and SHARE their page on wandering, and download the many teaching tools they offer. Basic info should be on your fridge for anyone who comes to your home, at school and daycare and day programs for every staff member, and with local law enforcement. As ever, thanks NAA for your amazing work.

About Autism & Wandering

Wandering/elopement is the tendency for an individual to leave the safety of a responsible person’s care or safe area, which may result in potential harm or injury. This might include running off from adults at school or in the community, leaving the classroom without permission, or exiting the house when the family is not aware. This behavior is considered common and short-lived in toddlers but may persist or re-emerge in those with autism.

According to research, nearly half of children with autism are at risk for wandering away from a safe setting. Because people with autism are vulnerable to dangerous situations including drowning, traffic incidents, becoming trapped hot cars, etc., it’s important to take critical precautions and be aware that drowning fatalities remain a leading cause of wandering-related death, along with traffic injury.

Wandering/elopement is typically a form of communication, often occurring to get to something of interest or away from something bothersome, usually noise, commotion, fears/phobias, and demands. These impulses and incidents can increase with added anxiety and stress, especially if the individual has challenges with coping, calming, or regulating their emotions.

Early signs of exit-seeking behavior can start in toddlerhood. They include social/demand avoidance, moving to a different area of building or home unnoticed, bolting when upset, and seeking out water or other quiet places.

Quick Facts

  • According to a study in Pediatrics, nearly half of children with autism have a tendency to wander/bolt from safe settings
  • More than one third of children with autism who wander/elope are never or rarely able to communicate their name, address, or phone number
  • According to a study by NAA, accidental drowning accounts for 71% of lethal outcomes, followed by traffic injuries at 18%
  • Other dangers include dehydration; heat stroke; hypothermia; falls; physical restraint; encounters with strangers
  • Increased risks are associated with autism severity

Dr Moskowitz Some Thoughts on The Covid

Introduction

The COVID pandemic was in its early stages when I retired in 2020; so I've had no personal experience of treating patients who’ve been sick with it.  But after three years of upsetting the lives of nearly everyone on the planet, it's still very much with us, still shrouded in mystery, still being perpetuated by the same fear and uncertainty that helped launch it in the first place, and dramatizes with its own special urgency a lot of the same issues I've been writing about ever since I began practicing long ago.  Of course, my collected thoughts, feelings, and opinions about it could also be wrong, which would actually be a huge relief.  But the scientific evidence that we now possess leaves little doubt that even the most speculative of my conspiracy theories are a lot closer to the truth than any sane person would willingly tolerate.

Bringing Back Old School Autism April Month

607EDBF0-B902-4E0C-A282-9514FDBA7807
This April, we're going to pay homage to EVERYONE who cares for a person with autism. That means parents, siblings, teachers, therapists, Doctors, day care workers, group home workers, day program staff, grandparents and anyone who builds the caregiver community we need to love, care for and provide day to day services.

Who remembers the, "Think autism Think cure" ribbon magnet from 20 years ago? Think cure turned into Autism Awareness.  Awareness turned into Acceptance. The puzzle piece has since been vilified and dropped by neurodiversity, replaced with a rainbow infinity symbol. Many of us still IDENTIFY (see how au courant we can be?) with the puzzle piece because we still have so many pieces to put together to help our children. NEVER have I met an autism parent who does not adore his or her children. NEVER I have I known a parent who desperately wanted a cure because they did not ACCEPT their child.  The puzzle is important.  And no one has the right to take it away from us because "they" deem it offensive. It's not ethnic. It's not racial. It has no social connotation that could legitimately be deemed out of date. IT'S A PUZZLE PIECE.  And we're taking it back this April.

Stay tuned.

Pfizer "Quietly" Studied Myocarditis in Children

Pfizer-covid-vaccine-consent-signature-1536x870
Below is an astounding article in The Children's Health Defense DEFENDER newsletter that should be front page across the nation. The graphic above is the actual "assent" for children signed to participate in testing. CHILDREN.  Vaccination has been Madison Avenued into a fairy tale of swaddling comfort and protection. The more I read, the more I recognized. Pharma and the US government has consistently claimed, "No evidence of harm," (thus the name of David Kirby's book) from pediatric vaccines. If you do not LOOK, there is no evidence. That doesn't mean there is no harm. Words matter.Thank you to CHD for the ongoing work on behalf of children everywhere.

Pfizer Quietly Studied Myocarditis in Children a Month Before FDA Authorized COVID Shots for Kids Ages 5-11

While the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention was promoting the COVID-19 vaccine as “safe and effective” for children and teens, Pfizer was studying whether and how much it damaged their hearts, according to a DailyClout report on internal Pfizer documents.

By 

Brenda Baletti, Ph.D.

While the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) was promoting the COVID-19 vaccine as “safe and effective” for children and teens, Pfizer was studying whether and how much it damaged their hearts, according to a DailyClout report on internal Pfizer documents.

The documents show that Pfizer conducted a “Phase 2/3 Study” in Europe, during which it vaccinated and collected blood samples from children ages 5-11 and 12-15 and tested them for troponin I.

Troponin I, a protein released into the bloodstream when the heart is damaged, is an indicator of subclinical myocarditis.

Pfizer began the study in September 2021, the month before the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) granted Pfizer emergency use authorization (EUA) for its COVID-19 vaccine for children ages 5-11.

The FDA said it based the EUA on the agency’s “thorough and transparent evaluation of the data” that found “no serious side effects.”

However, Pfizer’s ongoing active surveillance and testing for troponin 1 was an acknowledgment of the undisclosed risk of vaccine-induced myocarditis and pericarditis, according to Dr. Christopher Flowers, who wrote the report on the Pfizer documents for DailyClout.

Neither Pfizer nor the FDA made the results of the vaccine maker’s study available to the public, Flowers told The Defender.

Flowers, a retired academic radiologist with 40-plus years of clinical experience, has been sifting through the documents Pfizer provided the FDA in its EUA application since the FDA began releasing the documents in 2022 under a court order.

He has focused specifically on evidence of myocarditis among young people.

He said it is particularly worrying that Pfizer was testing young children for markers of subclinical myocarditis because they are not typically an age group at risk for the condition.

“If they were concerned about it, and at the same time they were telling everyone it was safe to use, well, the left hand is doing something different to what the right hand is doing,” he said.

Flowers said it is even more concerning that the outcomes haven’t been made public. Because if young children do have higher troponin 1 levels post-vaccination, it would be another indicator they should not take the vaccine.

“We have found that a lot of these children’s trials were dropped. On the clinicaltrials.gov website [where clinical trials are registered], a number of the proposed trials Pfizer told the FDA they were going to do disappeared off the site, which means they are not taking place” he added.

“So we have concerns that they knew something was going on, but we don’t have the data. We want truth, we want transparency. That’s what drove me to write this report.”

Flowers’ report is part of the DailyClout and War Room Project to analyze the 450,000 pages of Pfizer’s records on its mRNA COVID-19 vaccine — records the drugmaker tried unsuccessfully to keep private for 75 years.

Flowers heads up thousands of volunteer scientists, doctors, nurses, attorneys and others at the project who have been reviewing the documents, submitting related Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests and issuing investigative reports.  Read more at:

Some Thoughts on the COVID   

The COVID pandemic was in its early stages when I retired in 2020; so I've had no personal experience of treating patients who’ve been sick with it.  But after three years of upsetting the lives of nearly everyone on the planet, it's still very much with us, still shrouded in mystery, still being perpetuated by the same fear and uncertainty that helped launch it in the first place, and dramatizes with its own special urgency a lot of the same issues I've been writing about ever since I began practicing long ago.  Of course, my collected thoughts, feelings, and opinions about it could also be wrong, which would actually be a huge relief.  But the scientific evidence that we now possess leaves little doubt that even the most speculative of my conspiracy theories are a lot closer to the truth than any sane person would willingly tolerate.  Dr. Richard Moskowitz

The First Cases

Right from the start, the virus exhibited striking features that aroused suspicion, simply because it manifested so differently from most other acute viral infections that we know of.  In the first place, it seemed as contagious as the measles, if not more so.  Soon after the first known cases were identified in Wuhan in late December 2019, the first U. S. case was diagnosed in someone returning from China; and by the end of January, 2020, there were already 10,000 cases worldwide, enough to prompt many epidemiologists to warn the CDC, then-President Trump, and the entire world that emergency measures were necessary to forestall or at least contain the threat of a global pandemic.1  Even more unsettling was the finding that the virus had infected and perhaps been transmitted by large numbers of asymptomatic people,2  which made it imperative to locate and test exposed populations on a large scale in order to identify and isolate these carriers, especially in overcrowded, high-risk settings, and determine the true death rate.  The apparent rapidity and ease of its spread then led to further speculation that the virus had already been active in the Wuhan area months before the first case was announced in late December, as was subsequently confirmed by epidemiologists at the University of California San Diego, who calculated that the virus had most likely been circulating in Hobei Province since October 2019, if not before.3       

President Trump's offhand dismissal of the threat, combined with his outspoken disdain for science in general and the CDC in particular, gave irrefutable evidence to opponents and supporters alike of his utter incompetence and unfeigned disinclination to unite the nation and provide the kind of nonpartisan leadership that such a crisis demanded, and elevated the veteran Dr. Fauci, the designated leader of our coronavirus task force, into an unlikely hero for contradicting the Commander-in-Chief at his daily press briefings and ignoring his frequent diatribes.4 

But in their eagerness to seize on Trump's disgraceful and indeed unapologetic indifference to the public interest, his political opponents were far too quick to ignore the even more shocking and momentous failure of the CDC itself, mainly in not stockpiling adequate testing materials and safety equipment beforehand, despite having long studied and even predicted such outbreaks; not identifying and tracking those infected, once the virus made its presence known,5  as was already proving its worth in South Korea, Japan, Taiwan, China, and Hong Kong; and not acting promptly and effectively to do everything else necessary to contain the outbreak, as suggested above. 

Trump's dithering, denialism, and incompetence can hardly excuse the agencies in charge of our public health from failing to do precisely the job they were created to do, one requiring scientific expertise that the President, the Congress, and the general public don't have and aren't expected to have.

  1. "Flattening the Curve"

Even more unaccountably, both Fauci and the CDC abandoned the time-honored strategy for containing such outbreaks, even when leading epidemiologists like Dr. Knut Wittkowski of the Rockefeller University spelled it out for them when they seemed to be doing their best to ignore it:

                1) keeping the children in school, and allowing the virus to spread rapidly among this least vulnerable sector of the population;

                2) isolating the people at highest risk, such as the elderly, infirm, and chronically ill, and those living in nursing homes and extended-care facilities; and

                3) identifying asymptomatic carriers, and locating their contacts, thus enabling as many low-risk people as possible to develop and recover from the disease, leading to natural herd immunity in the shortest possible time.6 

Instead, by remaining silent and doing nothing for so many weeks, the agency actually allowed the President to have his way until the surge in new cases threatened to overwhelm the capacity of hospitals and urgent-care facilities to care for them, and thus made containing the outbreak no longer seem possible.  That was evidently the signal that prompted Dr. Fauci and the CDC to "flatten the curve," by imposing a general lockdown, shutting down the economy, and thus slowing the rate of infection, even though these measures, if successful, would necessarily prolong the outbreak and thus provide ample time for "variants" or mutant strains to develop.   Read more after the jump below.

No Greater Crime - the Lacey Fletcher Nightmare

Today, we're reprinting our Valentine's Day post where we saluted parents for the heartbreaking, back breaking work we do every day, out of love for our children.  Dana Kennedy of the NY Post has followed up on an horrendous death that involves a woman who may have had a form of autism. She asked me for a quote, and was able to print... some of it.  Welcome to new readers.

‘Pure evil’: Inside Lacey Fletcher’s sad life and torturous death on her parents’ couch

NO GREATER LOVE, 2/14/24

7BF1CB61-BF73-4EA8-9150-3278B2A050EA
By Kim Rossi

Today, I'll wear my heart on my sleeve. There’s no greater love than what I have witnessed in the autism parenting community. If your child has Down Syndrome, Cancer, Cerebral Palsy, Cystic Fibrosis, Spina Bifida, Muscular Dystrophy or anything other than autism - you have a medical community ready to embrace and help you, you  have religious institutions planning potlucks and GoFundMes. Ronald McDonald House and St. Jude are there to serve you. You get gentle looks in public. Friends and family try to help - even if they fail.  Not so with autism. We do this backbreaking, heartbreaking work alone, desperately trying to make the right choices for our children. Meds? ABA? Early Intervention? Biomed? Spelling? PECS? AAC? At home? Group home? General ed? Contained classroom? And in adulthood? You start from scratch again with far fewer supports than when your child was school age. We are BEASTS for our kids.

So, on this St. Valentine's Day 2024, from all of us at Age of Autism, we SEE you. We LOVE you. We ARE you.

Here's to avoiding the red dye!

BF60FCDA-FC15-40C4-AA83-2BB6E7B00EB1

By Cathy Jameson

A nurse from the one of the agencies that provides services for my son calls every 3 months. “Hi, Mrs. Jameson.  How is Ronan?  Does he need anything?  Do you need anything?”  Those calls are quick because Ronan’s been doing fine, he doesn’t need anything, and I don’t need anything either. 

Every six months, the nurse calls with scripted questions that keep us in the system and qualified for continued care.  Once a year, she visits us.  I’m always prepared for those visits and have appreciated the extra medical resources her agency can offer.  Besides resources, they can also offer medical supplies.  Ronan’s benefitted from having those items, for which I’m grateful.  Before the last home visit, I thought about what new items he might need but couldn’t think of any.  I also looked back at my notes from previous visits and jotted a few things I wanted to ask about.  For the next visit, the nurse who had met with us for years wouldn’t be joining us.  It would be a new person joining Team Ronan.  

I’m happy that the nurse who’d seen us through a few issues was moving on to something else.  But getting new people on board after all the things we’ve had to manage, and have successfully avoided, didn’t feel comfortable.  It felt like work.  Keeping my child safe and healthy is my job, so I got to work doing a little bit more prep work for the in-home visit. 

The day the new nurse came was less stressful than I thought it would be.  She was kind, lovely, and had years’ worth of really good notes from the nurse we’d know for years.  She even knew that flu shots are something we don’t care for.  That topic would be the tell-tale sign – if she hassled me, I knew to do more listening than talking.  If she didn’t, I’d still do more listening than talking, but I’d be open to hearing what she had to say.  With Ronan no longer under 18, the questions on his forms changed, including social/emotional needs.  No longer were they about which toys and activities he liked to do.  They were questions you’d hear an adult being asked.  

I have a good poker face, so didn’t let her know the first question shocked me:  

Does Ronan feel safe at home?

Yes. 

[Geez, lady. What a question!  He loves being home. LOVES it.]

With his special needs, I’m going to say he’s not out partying.

Right. 

[WHAT?!]

He’s not smoking?

Nope. 

[Good grief.]

Or drinking? 

No.

[Except this one time]

The more questions she asked, the more one-syllable responses I gave.  It satisfied her checkboxes, and it secured care for my son for another year.  With that done, I thanked the new nurse for her time and filed the paperwork. On her way out, she could see that Ronan was happy, healthy, and safe with us at home.  

Last Friday, we took Ronan out for dinner just because.  Well, mostly because it had been an incredibly busy week for me, and I didn’t want to make dinner.  We went to our usual place, but forgetting it was Friday night, the place was packed.  We went to another restaurant that we know Ronan enjoys.  Again, we saw a line out the door of patrons waiting for a table.  We drove farther into town, but four times that evening, we left because the wait was so long.  The fifth place, another go-to local eatery was open, empty, and perfect!  Ronan loves it there, and we loved seeing him so happy.  

Once dinner was over, we headed home.  We didn’t have the energy to do anything else.  And Ronan didn’t seem to mind going straight back.  Walking into the house with his little sister, he smiled.  He was home.  And he was incredibly happy to be there.  

Keeping him happy, healthy, and safe.  It’s my job, and I’m very happy to keep doing it.

Rare, Small, Slight Until It Happens To You or Your Loved One

291BAB59-9368-4632-A3BD-27E96A49CBE620 years ago, "you know," was sprinkled into language like salt on French fries. Today, everyone from children to mainstream TV experts, hosts and journalists are using, "sort of" and "kind of." This softening of declarative language diminishes the impact of the statement. And that's exactly what we see when we read about ANY sort of vaccine problems. We get euphemisms. Slight. Rare. Small. Possible. All meant to dissuade fear, the most useful tool of the lockdown. Rare is rare. So is winning the lottery, but loads of people play because they know "rare" can happen. Until it happens to you or loved one. And it's a lottery you didn't know existed. And you can wonder out loud whether the data has been massaged to show as little impact as “allowable” while still appearing to be scientific.

New York Post - COVID vaccines linked to slight increases in heart, brain, blood disorders: study

COVID vaccines from companies like Pfizer, Moderna and AstraZeneca have been linked to rare occurrences of heart, brain and blood disorders, according to the largest vaccine study to date.

Researchers from the Global Vaccine Data Network analyzed 99 million people who received jabs in eight countries and monitored for increases in 13 medical conditions, Bloomberg News reported.

The study, which was published in the journal Vaccine last week, found the vaccines were linked to a slight spike in neurological, blood and heart-related medical conditions....

The Defender Reports That Dr. Offit Is Back in The Saddle

Offit_blogThe Real Dr. Paul Offit Is Back!

Mary Holland JD, President of Children's Health Defense and autism Mother warrior herself  wrote this piece in Children's Health Defense's "The Defender." We know Dr. Offit all too well. Understatement of the millenium. In fact, the first time many AofA'ers met RFK, Jr. was at Autism One, when he spoke about Dr. Offit and presented a challenge to debate, if memory recollects.

###

During COVID-19, Dr. Paul Offit momentarily became something of a skeptic, telling media outlets he wouldn’t get a COVID-19 booster and wouldn’t recommend it. Now, he’s back to recommending the vaccines for infants as young as 6 months old.

Dr. Paul Offit is a familiar figure to most Defender readers — he’s been pushing vaccines for decades, especially to children.

Vaccine inventor, pharma spokesperson, adviser to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention — and vociferous denier of vaccine harms — that’s Paul Offit in a nutshell.

During COVID-19, Dr. Offit surprised me. He momentarily became something of a skeptic. In June 2022, he stated he wasn’t going to take a COVID-19 booster and wouldn’t recommend it.

He told the press that the boosters were “grossly oversold” and voted against them in an FDA vaccine advisory panel. In July 2022, he gave an interview to ZDoggMD during which he speculated that the Biden administration had pressured the panel and that “the fix was in,” suggesting there might be corruption at work.

Whatever Dr. Offit’s misgivings, he’s now back to his old self, promoting a new book, out Feb. 13: “Tell Me When it’s Over: An Insider’s Guide to Deciphering COVID Myths and Navigating Our Post-Pandemic World.”

In this Substack post to promote the book, he hyped COVID-19 shots to infants as young as 6 months.

Dr. Offit rues that only 4% of parents with children younger than age 4 have given them COVID-19 shots. He then recommends the vaccines by suggesting that children are suffering from severe COVID-19 disease, that the vaccines are effective in young children and that they are safe.

His post offers no scientific references whatsoever. It’s just, “trust me, I’m Dr. Offit.”

Wuhan bioweapons coverThe Wuhan Cover-Up: And the Terrifying Bioweapons Arms Race (Children’s Health Defense)
By Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.

“Whenever I read, listen to, or debate Bobby, I learn something new and change my mind on at least one or two issues, while vehemently disagreeing with many others. Both the agreements and disagreements stimulate my thinking and emotions, even when they make me angry or concerned. Read him and make up your own minds." —Alan Dershowitz

“The Wuhan Cover-Up will blow out of the water the international disinformation campaign by US and Chinese government officials and their bribed scientists that COVID-19 somehow magically jumped out of the Wuhan wet market. Kennedy’s book will provide the ammunition needed for us lawyers to hold them all legally accountable for this Nuremberg Crime against Humanity.” —Professor Francis A.

RFK, Jr. Chronic Disease is The Greatest Crisis of Our Time."

Children futureNote: We have plenty to worry about, from national security, to the economy to social issues. Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. has been a champion for children's health for decades. Many of us first met him (in wonderment, if you want the truth) at Autism One. We've seen "celebrities" come and go regarding pediatric issues, including the V-erboten one. Anne wrote up a portion of RFK Jr.'s interview for AofA. You know we don't endorse candidates. But we can say this, we WILL be watching to see if either former President Donald Trump or President Joe Biden make ANY mention of the dismal state of kids' health and it's impact on our future as a nation.

On Feb 17th, Robert Kennedy, Jr. was interviewed on To the Point on WOOD TV, Grand Rapids, MI. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NOBJCmVUrrk

Kennedy explained that the chronic disease epidemic is “the greatest crisis of our time.” He cited not only the autism epidemic, but also the obesity epidemic, the juvenile diabetes epidemic, and the food allergies epidemic to name only a few of the conditions making our children the sickest in the world.

And yes, vaccines are among the culprits Kennedy cites. 

4:34

Kennedy: We have a chronic disease epidemic in this country. That makes us the sickest country in the world: of autoimmune diseases, of allergies, peanut allergies, food allergies, eczema, asthma, and neurological diseases, ADD, ADHD, speech delay, language delay, ticks, autism and obesity.

There is no other country in the world that is as sick as us and nobody’s asking the question, why are our kids the sickest in the world?

Why did we have the highest death rate from COVID of any country on Earth? We had 16 percent of the COVID deaths. We only have 4.2 percent of the world’s population. 

If you ask CDC that question, what they’d say is that’s because Americans have the highest burden of chronic disease in the world.

We’re the sickest, and it’s costing us $4.3 trillion a year just to treat chronic disease. 

Our military budget is $1.3 trillion. . . . 

The cost of disease is sinking us, and we know what’s causing it. There’s a limited number of exposures. It has to be an environmental exposure. 

Congress asked EPA, what year did the autism epidemic begin?

Why did it go from one in 10,000 in my generation? Seventy year old men, one in 10,000 have full-blown autism, one in 34 of my kids’ generation. Congress said to EPA, tell us what year that  happened. 

EPA said 1989. It’s a red line. Well that year, that period, all these other autoimmune: juvenile diabetes— Juvenile diabetes now affects 30 percent of our children are either diabetic or pre-diabetic. When I was a kid, a pediatrician would see one diabetic kid in his entire career.

Now it’s one out of every three kids who walk into his office.

This is the greatest crisis of our time.

Why is no other candidate talking about this?

Kennedy was asked why that is.

It happened because of an environmental exposure. Genes don’t cause epidemic. It has to be an environmental toxin, and there’s a very famous toxicologist called Phil Landrigan who’s looked at the timeline and said, you need a toxin that was ubiquitous across the entire, every demographic in America from Cubans in Key Biscayne to Inuit in Alaska.

It all hit at the same time, and he’s come up with about thirteen possibilities, and most of these are substances that I’ve litigated against: glyphosate from Roundup, neonicotinoid pesticides, atrazine, which is now in almost all of our water supply. 

High fructose corn syrup clearly is linked to the obesity epidemic, the diabetes epidemic in kids.  

The vaccine schedule you mentioned exploded from the three vaccines I had as a kid to the 72, and all of those injuries are listed as potential side effects on the manufacturer’s inserts of those products, so that has to be one of the culprits. 

Cell phone radiation—there’s a limited number of them. The point is, it’s easy to study, but NIH will not do those studies because it’s frightened of offending the food industry, the processed food, the big agriculture, the pharmaceutical industry, the chemical industry. Those are all very powerful players, and nobody wants to get on their wrong side. 

So we’re letting our country just sicken.

A New York County Pays $750,000 to Families Whose Unvaccinated Kids Were Barred From School During Measles Outbreak

Rockland County’s 2019 emergency order prohibited children without measles vaccinations, including those with religious exemptions, from attending school or visiting public places for months. The county settled with parents who sued county officials for unlawfully ignoring their children’s religious exemptions.

Families who sued a New York county and two public officials over a 2019 emergency order banning their unvaccinated children from public spaces during a measles outbreak late last week have reached a settlement, just days before going to trial.

Rockland County’s 2019 emergency order prohibited children without measles vaccinations, including those with religious exemptions, from attending school or visiting public places for months, following a measles outbreak in the region.

Michael Sussman, the attorney representing the families, told The Defender Rockland County will provide $750,000 to the plaintiffs, “to be distributed by us as we choose to do so.”

The case was sent to a jury trial in November 2022 after the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, in a unanimous decision, overturned a lower court’s finding that Rockland County public health authorities were justified in issuing the emergency order.

Sixteen families of children affected by the emergency order sued Rockland County, the county’s executive and its health commissioner in April 2019, alleging the order was “motivated by animus against religion.” The families said the order violated the Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment.

The jury trial in the case was set to begin today in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.

According to Sussman, there was no indication Rockland County was ready to settle until late last week. He described the settlement as “a good result” for the plaintiffs.

“I thought the county acted responsibly in taking the case seriously because it involves serious rights,” Sussman said.

In an email, Mary Holland, Children’s Health Defense (CHD) president & CEO, told The Defender:

“The ‘measles epidemic’ that unfolded in 2018-19 in Brooklyn and Rockland County, New York, was the forerunner of the 2020 ‘COVID pandemic.’

“Intense media fear-mongering laid the groundwork for unlawful expulsion of unvaccinated children from schools — who had lawful religious exemptions — and lockdowns.

“After a long legal journey, Rockland County has de facto apologized — to the tune of $750,000 — to the families that the county treated wrongly. CHD is proud to have offered support to the families and lawyers in the case.”

CHD provided support to the plaintiffs and their legal counsel in this lawsuit.

Plaintiffs who spoke with The Defender said they are satisfied with the settlement.

New from Skyhorse Publishing. By Senator Rand Paul

Senator Rand Paul was on to Anthony Fauci from the start. Wielding previously unimaginable power, Fauci misled the country about the origins of the Covid pandemic and shut down scientific dissent.


One of the few leaders who dared to challenge "America’s Doctor" was Senator Rand Paul, himself a physician. Deception is his indictment of the catastrophic failures of the public health bureaucracy during the pandemic.

Senator Paul presents the evidence that:
  • The Covid virus was likely the product of gain-of-function research at the Wuhan lab in China—research funded in part by the U.S. government.
  • Taxpayer dollars for that research were deceptively funneled to Wuhan without the required regulatory review.
  • Fauci and his scientific yes-men knew from day one about Covid’s origin and tried to cover it up.
  • Fauci and his allies ruthlessly attacked everyone—including highly qualified scientists—who threatened to reveal the truth about the pandemic.
Why? Hundreds of millions of dollars of grants and unreported royalties were at stake, and heads would roll if the truth got out.

It almost worked. At Fauci’s insistence, the government imposed needlessly extreme lockdowns on Americans at the cost of immense personal and economic destruction.

Covid-19 was deadly, but the real killer was the coverup, led by America’s most durable medical bureaucrat—a man for whom the truth was too often expendable.

Senator Paul makes a powerful case that funding dangerous bioengineering in a totalitarian country is madness. If we don’t heed this warning, the next pandemic could be far worse.

No Greater Love

Reprinted from Valentine's day in light of a story in the NY Post that describes the HORROR for one woman who may have had an autism diagnosis, whose "God-fearing" parents are alleged to have let her rot and melt into the family couch.  Thank you to Dana Kennedy for acknowledging this story and allowing us all to keep Lacey Fletcher in our thoughts.  Autism is a CRISIS for America.

By Kim Rossi

Today, I'll wear my heart on my sleeve. There’s no greater love than what I have witnessed in the autism parenting community. If your child has Down Syndrome, Cancer, Cerebral Palsy, Cystic Fibrosis, Spina Bifida, Muscular Dystrophy or anything other than autism - you have a medical community ready to embrace and help you, you  have religious institutions planning potlucks and GoFundMes. Ronald McDonald House and St. Jude are there to serve you. You get gentle looks in public. Friends and family try to help - even if they fail.  Not so with autism. We do this backbreaking, heartbreaking work alone, desperately trying to make the right choices for our children. Meds? ABA? Early Intervention? Biomed? Spelling? PECS? AAC? At home? Group home? General ed? Contained classroom? And in adulthood? You start from scratch again with far fewer supports than when your child was school age. We are BEASTS for our kids.

So, on this St. Valentine's Day 2024, from all of us at Age of Autism, we SEE you. We LOVE you. We ARE you.

Here's to avoiding the red dye!
