A Report from VIE in DC For the Unacknowledged Vaccine-Injured Children: We See You

Wapo darkness
By Jennifer Kozek

It is interesting that the Washington Post’s Headline includes the subtitle, “Democracy Dies in the Darkness,” when the story of vaccine injury never sees the light of day. 

The Washington Post refused to publish this Op-ed.

On November 14, 2019, thousands of ex-vaccinators (parents of injured and dead children) show up on the National Mall VIE pic 1lawn in D.C. on a very chilly and windy day alongside the VaxXed bus. The bus has thousands of names written on the outside, thousands who have been interviewed on camera telling the world about their vaccine injures. Parents stood there on the grass with brave warriors like health advocate and attorney Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., independent journalist Del Bigtree, and others including, clergy, scientists, and medical doctors. Yet, not one mainstream media outlet showed up to report the story or film these weeping parents holding their photos of their children.

I write this piece to acknowledge and honor our lost and injured children and the families who suffered the ultimate price by following the vaccine childhood schedule of 72 injections. And, those families whose child has died, has become disabled or sterile from the HPV vaccine.  I weep alongside them, and I keep fighting for Medical, Religious, and Parental Freedom. The U.S. Supreme Court deemed vaccines “unavoidably” unsafe. Their effectiveness is also significantly in question. Our God does not want us to harm our children. It is our constitutional right to VIE pic 2 Andy Del Bobbyprotect our children and keep them safe from harm.

When there is a risk, there must be a choice.

I have learned that medical mandates only benefit a corrupt industry. The captured media, along with Congress, completely ignore the manipulated data and whistleblowers. Propaganda runs deep. The consensus is not science. Real science includes valid blind placebo safety testing for more than five days. Real science is not ghostwritten. The story that vaccines can create herd immunity, and that they are safe and effective may be the biggest lies ever told in history – the same playbook as tobacco science. We had to learn the hard way.

3000 at DC Mall for Vaccine Injury Awareness: A Report by June Fakkert

VIE DCNote: Below is a terrific summary of the event last week in Washington, DC. Has anyone pointed out that "VIE" in French means "life?" Appropos, n'est pas?

Thousands Rally in DC for Vaccine Injury Awareness


By June Fakkert, Epoch Times

Nearly 3,000 people attended a rally on the National Mall in Washington on Friday to bring attention to what they say is an epidemic of vaccine injury in America, an epidemic that is not getting either the medical or media attention it needs.

The event, called the Vaccine Injury Epidemic Event, was organized by the non-profit group Crazymothers. Founder Hillary Simpson told Epoch Times that she organized the event to bring doctors lawyers, scientists, legislators, and mothers together to address the vaccine issue from every angle.

“I think when you have 53 percent of American children suffer from a chronic issue you have to start to look at it,” she told The Epoch Times.

Simpson’s son had a severe reaction after receiving several vaccinations on the same day. After she made a video describing what happened, she estimates that she heard from thousands of parents who reported similar symptoms to her son’s. Common symptoms described in the reports were very high fevers, immediate signs of gastrointestinal issues, encephalitis (swelling of the brain), and seizures.

The other common theme she said is that when parents take a child with these symptoms back to their doctor, physicians say this isn’t a vaccine reaction.

Event speakers included Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Del Bigtree a journalist and producer of the documentary “Vaxxed: From Cover-up to Catastrophe,” which looks at evidence of fraud in one of the key MMR safety studies done by the CDC, and Dr. Andrew Wakefield, the director of “Vaxxed.” The film’s makers say the film has been heavily censored.

The event also included a screening of “Vaxxed II: The People’s Choice,” a compilation of interviews with parents collected by the “Vaxxed” film team while on a screening tour for the first film.

On the 18-month tour, over 7200 people wrote on the tour bus the names of their loved ones who they believe were injured or killed by vaccines. At Friday’s rally, over 1200 new names were added, “Vaxxed” team members told Epoch Times.  Read more at Epoch Times here.


Livin' Large and Advertising on Facebook like.... Pharma?

TV Ad smiling manGood grief.  Take a look at this ridiculous article in the UK Guardian about Facebook post boosts/ads.  Feel free to imagine ominous music as you read. It enhances the moment. Perhaps we need a good old fashioned slogan?

About vaccines! Take a look! We'll tell you all on.... Face Book!

Most of us don't have two nickels to rub together for advertising. 54% of all the ads is how much?? This article is NONSENSE. Oh and dig this: US healthcare and pharmaceutical advertisers will increase their digital ad spending by 20.1% to $3.62 billion in 2019.

Majority of anti-vaxx ads on Facebook are funded by just two organizations

Study finds Robert F Kennedy Jr’s World Mercury Project and Larry Cook’s Stop Mandatory Vaccinations bought 54% of ads

The majority of Facebook ads spreading misinformation about vaccines are funded by two organizations run by well-known anti-vaccination activists, a new study in the journal Vaccine has found.

The World Mercury Project chaired by Robert F Kennedy Jr, and Stop Mandatory Vaccinations, a project of campaigner Larry Cook, bought 54% of the anti-vaccine ads shown on the platform during the study period.

“Absolutely we were surprised,” said David Broniatowski, a professor of engineering at George Washington University, one of the authors of the report. “These two individuals were generating the majority of the content.”

Cook uses crowd-funding platforms to raise money for Facebook ads and his personal expenses. The crowd-funding platform GoFundMe banned Cook’s fundraisers in March 2019. YouTube has demonetized Cook’s videos.   Read more here.

Kennedy is the son of the former US attorney general Bobby Kennedy. He also has a nonprofit focused on environmental causes. Kennedy’s brother, sister and niece publicly criticized his “dangerous misinformation” about vaccines in May. They called his work against vaccination, “tragically wrong”.

In fact, vaccines are one of the safest and more effective medical interventions ever developed. Joe-isuzu-2-thumb

The Vaccine journal study is the first to analyze anti-vaccine ads in Facebook’s advertising archive. The archive is an ad disclosure database Facebook created after the platform was criticized for spreading untraceable misinformation during the Brexit referendum and 2016 US presidential campaign.

Facebook has more than two billion users and roughly 68% of Americans get their news from the platform, the study said. In 2019, the World Health Organization named vaccine hesitancy as one of the world’s top 10 global health threats.

Facebook’s micro-targeting algorithms, unlike television, radio or newspapers, have allowed anti-vaccine groups to home in on individuals who might be susceptible to doubts about vaccines. In particular, women and parents of young children have been targeted by Stop Mandatory Vaccination, and Cook was even censured by the UK Advertising Standards Authority last year.

“Unless you’re in the target audience you’re not going to see an ad, so it’s hard to know what other organizations might be running,” said Emily Lowther, a spokesperson for the Minnesota Hospitals Association, which has had pro-vaccination ads automatically removed from Facebook. It is unclear why Facebook removed the ads.


The Science is Settled! And Pluto is a Planet.... Again.

PlanetsOh how I laughed at a Facebook post on Ginger Taylor's page yesterday.  Back in August, NASA  Chief Jim Bridenstein declared that Pluto is a planet indeed, despite its intergalactic demotion in 2005.   My quip response was:

Poor Pluto... it's like planetary ASD in the DSM V.

I thought that was rather clever of me. Until I read Jill Zammit's comment:

How? I thought the science was settled?

And Jill wins the Internet!

One of the lines that vaccine injury apologists LOVE to throw around is: "THE SCIENCE IS SETTLED." Please read that in James Earl Jones' booming voice for proper resonance.

Sure. Vaccine science is settled. Like millions of American bellies after overindulging on Thanksgiving. Settled.

Find a showing of VAXXED II THE PEOPLE'S TRUTH and learn for yourself how settled is the science. The movie is completely unsettling. Especially the segments on Gardasil and SIDS, which bring in huge communities unrelated to us crazy anti-vaxxers seeking to blame something, anything for our kids autism.

Me? I don't need the head of NASA to tell me Pluto is a planet. I already know it. STEVE told me. And my kids have loved this song long after they left the Nick Jr age bracket. That's their autism. Just as real as Pluto.  I'll bet many of you can sing it with  me.  "Well the sun's a hot staaaarrrr....."





Hail The Vaxocracy!

CalipharmaNote: Thank you to Laura Hayes for sending out this letter from California chiropractor Dr. Darrel Crain. It's a perfect read today, the day of the VIE event in Washington, DC. All hail theVaxocracy! Or face the consequences..... The letter is printed below.

###

They Shoot Children Don’t They?

Welcome to the state of Calipharmia, formerly known as California. The Vaxocratic Party, formerly the democrats, have ushered in a new form of government here best described as a Vaxocracy.

Under the laws of the new vaxocracy, free speech is protected. Well, almost. Every topic imaginable can be freely debated and openly discussed. Except vaccines. Vaccines are totally off limits. Period. Are questions allowed? Nope. Concerns? Forget about it.

Virtually all children, without exception, must get every shot on the government list. Not to worry though, this is all free choice. Parents can decide their kids will get the shots, and their kids can go to school. Or, parents can decide their kids are better off without the shots. No problem, no school.

Any parent who disagrees or feels uncertain about their child getting every shot on the CDC vaccine schedule is an “at-risk” parent suffering “vaccine hesitancy” according to vaxocratic doctrine, which protocol requires that these parents be called out and publicly humiliated.

If you have children in your home not fully vaccinated, Child Protective Services may soon be ringing your doorbell. And CPS may call the police. When the police arrive, they may take your child and hand her over to CPS to be placed in foster care. What could possibly go wrong?

If you are a medical doctor who has helped parents exempt their child from mandatory shots to avoid vaccine-induced illness, your career is pretty much finished. Investigation, chastisement, debasement, and punishment are in your immediate future. Also, your medical license is on the line.

But a medical license appears to be irrelevant now. By vaxocratic decree, medical decision-making for children now resides in the hands of government desk-jockeys. The vaxocrats have ruled that state functionaries are much more qualified than parents and family doctors to decide what is best for each child. Pencil-pushers working for the state now have the authority to just say no to medical exemptions they don’t like. Which is every medical exemption that ever crosses their desk.

Bureaucrats have been steeped in proper vaxocratic doctrine, which is as easy as one, two, three:

First, no vaccine has ever harmed a flea. (Not that vaccines are actually tested on fleas for safety. But then again, no vaccine is ever safety tested at all, for children or otherwise.)

Second, vaccine-induced catastrophic illness only exists in the wild imaginations of parents, who are obviously confused and delusional from reading vaccine misinformation and disinformation on the Internet. In other words, they have been reading actual information unacceptable to vaxocratic logic.

Third, experts agree, everything is fine. Don’t worry, be happy.

Rest assured these conclusions are supremely trustworthy, because they are the result of years of honest and careful consideration by the vaccine industry on how to effectively spread a perfectly uncritical belief in the holiness of vaccines. It is hard enough to convince a healthy person to accept a medical intervention known to cause severe illness and death, but much worse once they realize vaccines are wholly unnecessary, horribly neurotoxic, and responsible for many ruined lives and much pointless suffering.

Children’s Health Advocates Will Gather to Demand Truth and Justice for the Vaccine-Injured

VIE DCGovernment’s gift to Pharma of liability-free vaccines puts children’s health at risk states Children’s Health Defense (CHD) Chairman, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.

Washington, DC – Thousands of advocates for children’s health will gather Thursday at the Vaccine Injury Epidemic (VIE) Event on the National Mall to mark the 33rd anniversary of National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA). The rally on Nov. 14th will spotlight the devastating impact NCVIA has had upon the state of children’s health. While children continue to be injured by vaccines daily, vaccine makers cannot be held accountable, thereby eliminating incentive for vaccine safety.

In his remarks, RFK, Jr. will address the ramifications of NCVIA and honor those whose lives have been impacted by vaccine injury and death. “It’s time to call out Congress, the CDC, and drug companies for allowing industry profits to trump children’s health,” said Kennedy. “There is no crisis more urgent than the epidemics of chronic health conditions among our nation’s children.”

Following NCVIA’s passage creating the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP), the childhood vaccine market sparked a gold rush for Pharma as more vaccines for routine childhood illnesses were developed. Coterminous with the burgeoning vaccine schedule, chronic health conditions in children rose from 12% to 54%. As vaccine industry profits grew to $50 billion annually, so did diagnoses of asthma, autism, ADHD, allergies, anxiety, depression, diabetes, obsessive-compulsive disorder and auto-immune diseases.  Here are the facts:

  • An HHS-funded study found only 1% of vaccine injuries are reported.
  • Despite NVICP’s high burden of proof and two out of three claims dismissed, over $4.2 billion has been paid for claims of vaccine injury or death.
  • The vaccine-injured find NVICP to be a years-long, litigious program with no jury, discovery and precedent. While medical bills mount, the injured are up against DOJ lawyers and HHS “Special Masters” that act as judges.
  • The Department of Justice and the NVICP are accused of fraud and obstruction of justice in the Autism Omnibus Proceeding.
  • The Institute of Medicine reports that the vaccine schedule as recommended has never been studied for long-term health effects despite independent research suggesting that unvaccinated children are healthier.
  • Modern medicine acknowledges that not everyone responds the same to vaccination and the “one size fits all” vaccine policy is not science based.

Children’s Health Defense’s created these six steps to vaccine safety. RFK, Jr. interviews are available upon request.

Are You Vaxcurious?

VaxcuriousNew word! Vaxcurious.  There are other versions of "-curious" that are en vogue today, so why not a version devoted to an important topic like vaccination?

A person who is vaxcurious is one who asks, or WANTS to ask questions about vaccination. Most AofA readers are way past being vaxcurious - we have solidly formed opinions based in fact, science and personal experience. But much of America does not. And we need to let them know that they have the right to ask questions. 

Vaxcurious. Hashtag it. Share it. It will encourage conversation in a way that cuts "anti-vax" and it's pejorative connotation off at the knees.


ABC News Forgets What It Means to Be a Kennedy in the United States

ABC News against RFK
I was scrolling through Twitter yesterday morning and came across this Tweet from ABC News disparaging Robert Kennedy Jr for his work regarding vaccination.  Here is the link to the story on ABC Anti-vaccine leaders targeting minority becomes growing concern at NYC forum. Take a look at the hubris in the sentences below. The tone is dismissive in the extreme. You can hear the writers' (public relations that is) eyeballs rolling around their heads as if speaking to and about morons. It's classic pharma spin within a "news" organization that used to be a standard of excellence:

Like climate change, vaccine science is settled. By all conceivable logic, a medicine that prevents disease outright, rather than treating symptoms, should be universally embraced. Nonetheless, a handful of anti-vaccine leaders, who mistakenly believe that vaccines cause autism, continue to fight a ground war of disinformation, spreading propaganda to skittish new moms and dads and encouraging parents of children with autism to blame their children’s diagnoses on vaccines.

This is the event from which Al Sharpton bailed, by the way, instead of acting on behalf young African American children. I responded to their Tweet, as you can see in the image below.    Then I did a quick search for the day Robert's father was assassinated and found this video.  He was killed in California - the bellwether state for vaccination mandates in 2019. How is it the nation's news and political leaders, within the Democratic party particularly, the Kennedys' party, now openly scorn and ridicule Robert for his work on behalf of all of us? It's a disgrace. And it's dangerous too. I think this openly invites sanctioned violence. Make a person a threat and all bets are off.  "...a growing concern..."

May God protect Robert Kennedy Jr..

Treating Anthrax Vaccines Like Thanksgiving Leftovers

AnthraxMost of us the Saturday after Thanksgiving here in the USA: "I really don't feel like having a turkey sandwich, but hey, it's in the fridge and I'd hate to waste it."  There is no threat of a bioterror attack in the Midwest at this current time. If you had to choose the cities in America where a threat might occur, St. Louis, Missouri wouldn't make the top 20.  Who submitted the grant applications and why?  Do the first responders have the right to full informed consent and to refuse this vaccination?

St. Louis Emergency Personnel Get Anthrax Vaccine In Federal Test St. Louis Emergency Personnel Get Anthrax Vaccine In Federal Test

From this article:

Emergency responders in St. Louis are among the first to receive the anthrax vaccine as part of a federal program to inoculate local personnel.

Health officials from Washington University and local health departments have begun giving the vaccine to first responders who volunteer as part of a federal program testing the distribution of the shots to emergency personnel

Anthrax is a disease contracted when a person consumes or inhales deadly spores of anthrax bacteria. When modified to a powdered form in a lab, anthrax can be distributed through the air by terrorists.

Emergency responders such as firefighters, emergency room workers and police are especially are at risk of contracting the illness in the event of a bioterrorism attack....

....There is no imminent threat of anthrax bioterrorism in St. Louis, House said. The Department of Homeland Security chose St. Louis and the other city, Oxford, Mississippi, because they submitted strong grant applications.

But it is important to inoculate first responders before the vaccines expire, Zink said.

Anthrax vaccines have a shelf life of only a few years. After that, they are discarded. The program is a way to use the vaccines in the stockpile and mitigate a potential threat.

Ron Paul on the Slippery Slope of Mandated Vaccination

Ron Paul TweetNo matter your stance on vaccination, every American should be stopping to consider the ramifications of any forced medical procedure or medication in this nation. The fact the your government can hold your job, schooling or hard earned benefits hostage of lack of a commercial product with  risk, questionable efficacy and zero corporate liability which combats a tiny percentage of infectious disease that pales when compared to the litany of medical ills that ravage our population is contrary to our nation's very DNA. 

We commemorate Veteran's Day on Monday, 11/11. Is this what our  men and women have fought for and lost their lives for throughout our nation's history - for the Federal and State governments to tell us what we must do to our actual bodies to participate in society?

Why are there no mandates surrounding obesity and heart disease? No forced statins. No school bans on students whose A1c has them on track for a lifetime of diabetes. Even cigarettes are still legal in the USA when they are known to cause cancer and other lung disease. Chronic diseases affect and INFECT families. Medical bankruptcy is a huge threat to the herd. Families go broke. They never recover. Children drop out of college. Retirement becomes a never ending string of low paying jobs. And yet we're panicked over measles?

Ron Paul, love him or hate him, we won't ever suggest how you should vote, brings up the truth of our time. 

Where there is risk, there must be choice. Our flag means something precious.


OPINION: HPV vaccine incentive payments need to stop.

Vioxx now gardasilBy Joshua Mazer posted as an opinion piece in Eye On Annapolis.net. Thank you, Josh.

OPINION: HPV vaccine incentive payments need to stop.

The Maryland Prevention and Health Promotion Agency (PHPA) has received millions — $123 million just between 2012–2017 — as part of an effort to require public schools to force children to get the human papilloma virus (HPV) vaccination. Those funds came in the form of grants from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

The CDC maintains a nonprofit foundation that gets enormous amounts of money from Big Pharma — including Merck, the company that produces Gardasil, the HPV vaccine. At the very least, Maryland’s acceptance of those funds has the appearance of impropriety.

Controversial, Liability Free Vaccine

The vaccine being pushed today is too controversial to be trusted as the public-health solution for HPV. While the medical literature is full of claims and counterclaims about the health effects of Gardasil 1 2, 3, 4, 5, the drug was directly blamed for the death of Maryland student Christina Tarsell. Despite initial denials by state and federal health bureaucrats that the vaccine was to blame, the U.S. Court of Federal Claims concluded in 2017 that a preponderance of evidence indeed indicated her death resulted from the drug.

Dorit Reiss Shows Immune System Ignorance While Promoting Vaccination

Dorit on Immune system
Oh dear, this is the kind of Tweet that if WE made this claim on Social Media, we'd be pilloried as not understanding science. And rightly so. On what planet is a strong immune system bad?  And why does pharma and the CDC and Dick Pan allow this law professor to be the mouthpiece for vaccination? The immune system kicks in to FIGHT infection by generating heat known as fever. I learned that at my mother's kitchen table while sipping once, sipping twice sipping chicken soup with rice with a warm forehead and a dolly at my side. But don't take my word for it, I’m just a dumb woman without any letters after my  name. Here, you can trust Scientific AmericanThe presence of a fever is usually related to stimulation of the body's immune response. Fever can support the immune system's attempt to gain advantage over infectious agents, such as viruses and bacteria, and it makes the body less favorable as a host for replicating viruses and bacteria, which are temperature sensitive.

From WebMDDespite its marvels, the immune system does break down from time to time, says Polsky. “There are diseases that we have no control over, but lifestyle aspects are very, very important,” he tells WebMD.

Not eating healthily, being sedentary, not getting enough sleep, and being under chronic stress can all contribute to a weak immune system. When your immune system is depleted, bacteria, viruses, or toxins can overwhelm the body. The result? You get sick.

A diet rich in antioxidant vitamins, on the other hand, can boost resistance to infection. Think about eating in color: dark green, red, yellow, and orange fruits and veggies are packed with antioxidants. Try berries, citrus fruits, kiwi, apples, red grapes, kale, onions, spinach, sweet potatoes, and carrots.

Other immune-boosting foods include fresh garlic, which may have antiviral and antibiotic properties, and old-fashioned chicken soup. Studies show that, if you do come down with a cold or the flu, a bowl of steaming chicken soup can ease inflammation and help you get well faster.

Dorit so loves vaccinations that she thinks they are better than the human immune system. Yikes, what hubris. She is Israeli - perhaps she meant the "Jewish Flu Shot" (chicken soup.) Only if it comes in a syringe labeled Pfizer.



Forbes VaxShames Bill Maher with Jenny McCarthy Treatment

False tunnelNote: Oh how quickly the busy pharmedia bees have been buzzing about in a frenzy after Bill Maher made a NEW RULE and allowed a conversation (that was rather tame overall) about autism, vaccines, and safety on Real Time last Friday night. There mere mention of "maybe it's true.... we don't know for sure.... Pharma has made some egregious errors....." causes meltdowns we only WISH we could witness in editorial rooms across the country.  And the phone lines to politicians were burning, I'm sure. Forbes, never one to turn down an opportunity to VaxShame a woman or man, jumped in with both feet.

Bill Maher, I've seen you in person. I adored Howard Stern on your program a few weeks ago. I am a fan. STAY STRONG. Do not let them tar and feather you because you voiced dissent. Fight back. Please.

The writer - a Nina Shapiro -  is like Paul Offit. An MD who wrote a book to "dispel myths."  Ha ha - as if we haven't heard that often enough. Sure, when a medical disaster that's as plain as the nose on your face enters the conversation, shut it down by calling it a "myth" that needs to be debunked or dispelled.  From her bio:

I wrote a book dispelling health myths called HYPE: A Doctor's Guide to Medical Myths, Exaggerated Claims and Bad Advice-- How to Tell What's Real and What's Not, to stop our heads from spinning from overwhelming rapid-fire health information.I'm the Director of Pediatric Otolaryngology and Professor of Head and Neck Surgery at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA. I've been in academic medicine for over two decades, setting the record straight about the latest health fads and misconceptions. As someone who's had their feet firmly planted in both clinical and academic work, I help patients and families make decisions every day about their health. Living in times filled with suspicion, I find myself dispelling a lot of myths in response to swarms of information triggering fear or unnecessarily pushing us to change our habits overnight.

From Phorbes.com

On the November 1, 2019 episode of “Real Time with Bill Maher,” he had a conversation with pediatrician Jay Gordon, MD, known for providing troves of high-profile families with personal belief exemptions and medical exemptions to postpone or forego vaccinations for their children. As the tony pockets of Los Angeles county have seen some of the lowest vaccination rates in the nation, coupled with increasingly frequent outbreaks of vaccine-preventable illnesses such as measles, pertussis (whooping cough), and flu, many have raised concerns about the validity of such exemptions.

Bill Maher, known for having his share of skepticism of health care recommendations and physicians (”the people in the white coats,” as he refers to them with a pejorative tone), brings up the point that vaccines may play a role in causing autism. Within hours, the Twitterverse, physicians, and mainstream media outlets dug in their heels on this seemingly endless debate. The idea that it should even be a debate is, well, debatable.

Check out minutes 6:30 to 20:00 to hear the discussion of vaccines and autism, if you must.

The host and guest had a mutually supportive banter about how we must not trust pharmaceutical companies, most physicians, and certainly not the laws in place to protect our children. Mr. Maher even made a jab at dentists, who “put mercury in my teeth.” The notion that mercury-containing fillings from nearly six decades ago can cause neurologic disorders in grown adults has led to countless baby boomers getting their fillings removed and replaced. No study, nor any mainstream dental association, recommends removal of mercury fillings purely for the sake of reducing mercury toxicity. Even if you have up to 15 mercury fillings, the amount of mercury vapor is too low to cause any damage. And if, indeed, you do have 15 fillings, did you ever brush as a kid?  Read more HERE.


The ID2020 Alliance: The Global Totalitarian Project Hiding Behind The Vaccine Drive

GHSA
By John Stone

These days history happens by stealth: the big shifts in power are often only incidentally reported in our mainstream news-media and can be hard to detect even by experienced watchers. Until a year ago almost no one had heard of the Global Health Security Agenda, although the project started in 2014 under the Obama administration and has already destabilised nations: something which is neither conjecture or “conspiracy theory” but easily established from public documents [1, 2] . Late last year I highlighted a column in electronic BMJ by J Stephen Morrison “senior vice president at the Center for Strategic and International Studies and director of its Global Health Policy Center" [3]:

“The term "smart power" was new to me when I encountered it recently in a British Medical Journal blog as part of the new-speak vocabulary of J Stephen Morrison 'senior vice president at the Center for Strategic and International Studies and director of its Global Health Policy Center".  Morrison's article is interesting both because it discloses explicitly how 9/11 was made an opportunity  to draw health into the global security agenda of the United States while failing to understand how such a move might result in the shattering of "consensus" and the post war "Western post-war liberal order": "smart power" even if it is smart is not "liberal" and will not lead to consensus. But it also spells out that the global vaccine program has become a covert instrument of US power. If Morrison by any chance laments the passing of the centre-left government in Italy, then perhaps the White House putting Italy and its health minister, Beatrice Lorenzin, in charge of global vaccine strategy was an error. 

“Morrison thinks it is a paradox but it is scarcely so if a government is seen to pursue coercive health measures over its citizens at the behest of a foreign power - even those who favor vaccination could be concerned at the state's new found powers over their bodies (which might also be indefinitely extended). If that was not so smart a political move perhaps the technology is not so smart either - as I remarked  to Steven Salzberg a few years ago: "The unwelcome news is that the “cruise missiles and drone helicopters” of the war on disease often hit the wrong target, and the more cruise missiles and drone helicopters you unleash the greater the risk".

“Frankly, no one knows what they are going to be injected with next. Smart bombs become too easily the agents of international chaos and mistrust: just so the smart bombs of the war on disease, both for what they can do to your body and what they can do to the political landscape, including destabilizing friendly governments. “Smart power” is also duplicitous: Italy is just the surrogate of the US. Why could the citizens of the world not have it directly from the mouth of Obama saying in effect ‘your bodies are not your own and we inject into them what we like?’.”

But the heat was turned up again at the beginning of 2019 when the World Health Organization declared “the vaccine hesitant” to be a threat to world health [2], and the Global health terror over measles was launched despite inadequate evidence either for the spread, or the casualties[1,4-6]. Also, of course, pinned to the tails of the largely artificial measles scare, was the demand for compliance with a host of other products to combat other diseases. Implausibly, health officials continue to stick to the baseless proposition that a two-month old infant can benefit from unlimited barrage of biological products without risk of harm, and never seem to have heard of the concept of “over-medication” [7].

Does Vaxogynist Autumn Dayss Have Sleepless Nights Over her Mocking Sick Children?

Autumn Dayss
Cafe Mom ran a post about about women, #MeToo sisters who should be supporting one another, women who probably promote breastfeeding and are pro-choice are creating Vaxist or Vaxogynist memes that mock, disregard and bully in the old fashioned not snowflake sense of the words children who are vaccine injured. In a tiny bright moment, when I went to Facebook to seek the photo - it had a content shield over it. I am very happy about that. It deserve to have a warning. It's disgusting.

On what planet does dressing up as a Mom with whom you disagree become en vogue? Do stay at homes dress as working Moms to mock them? Do nursing Moms dress with babies drinking poison from a filthy bottle to stick a finger in the eye of formula moms?  Do pro-choice women dress as patients with  bloody coat hangers dangling out of their netherparts for fun?  Ha Ha Halloween!

WHY IS IT OK TO PORTRAY OUR KIDS AS DEAD?  Many ARE dead. They wander. They drown. They choke and gasp and seize to death.

When I was in third grade, I wore an adorable costume A0A27131-0C2A-4971-B62A-26F2A9FFED12 for Halloween - I was an Indian! That's what I called it. Today, we no longer use the term Indian, that's called progress. And a child wearing my get up might not be allowed in school parties. Even trick or treating might lead to raised eyebrows. Did I mean harm? Of course not. Was I mocking the Wampanoag tribe that was in my area? Of course not. Still. It would be seen as offensive today, and it was probably offensive to those with Native blood even back in the 1970s. So we no longer dress this way.

But it's not only OK, it's comedic fodder to make fun of vaccine choice, vaccine injury (they don't believe it exists) and families. Dead child! Skelebaby!!!

Here's a clip of the article. Feel free to pop over to CAfe Mom to comment. I've written for them in the past. I like a lot of their columns, even though standard parenting was never my life - because of vaccine injury.

Woman Dresses Up as 'Anti-Vax Mom' for Halloween & People Have Strong Feelings

The image is, in a word, shocking. But then again, it's meant to be.

Many people left comments saying Dayss' attempt at humor went too far -- even if the message is important.

"Disgusting and heartless," wrote one commenter. "It’s NEVER okay to joke about anyone losing a child."

"This is just ugly," wrote another.

One woman called the costume "vile," adding, "Way to go putting your complete lack of class on display for the world. Your mama must be so proud."

NY Legislation: Will They Lock Up the Unvaccinated?

Salem witch huntNote: We are careening toward a dystopian nightmare where the only demographic in the United States that can be bullied, hated, discriminated against, left behind and maybe even imprisoned will be the un- or under-vaccinated.  We protect every letter in the alphabet, no matter how small the group, how temporary the craze, except UV. It's vaxism. Pure and simple. This week is Halloween, I'm from Boston, Massachusetts, not far from Salem, where women were murdered because they were non-compliant. Witches. Have we really come that far?

The Salem witch trials occurred in colonial Massachusetts between 1692 and 1693. More than 200 people were accused of practicing witchcraft—the Devil's magic—and 20 were executed. Eventually, the colony admitted the trials were a mistake and compensated the families of those convicted. Since then, the story of the trials has become synonymous with paranoia and injustice, and it continues to beguile the popular imagination more than 300 years later.

New York is at it again. The legislature introduced Senate Bill A99 in January 2019; it is an active bill, still in committee. The bill was introduced as “An act to amend the public health law, in relation to the removal of cases, contacts, and carriers of communicable diseases who are potentially dangerous to the public health.” If passed into law, the bill would allow the government to detain and quarantine individuals deemed to be a threat to state and local health, which begs the question: Who determines an actual threat? And who really are the actual threats?

Rockland County officials banned unvaccinated individuals from entering public spaces over the summer and issued a follow-up emergency order to mandate the MMR vaccine for specific Brooklyn zip codes. The state seems intent on segregating the unvaccinated from the vaccinated.

The CDC defines an outbreak as three or more confirmed measles cases in a given catchment area of 100,000 people. At least two of the cases must be laboratory-confirmed, with a positive IgM antibody, showing the infection is acute in nature. Under SB A99, the unvaccinated could be detained and quarantined during an outbreak even if they are not infected. Westchester County in New York State passed a similar bill in September 2019, that allows authorities to use these methods against local citizens with no outbreak or case of infection identified.

A Lack of Transparency

Here is a section from the SB A99 bill:

“Upon determining by clear and convincing evidence that the health of others is or may be endangered by a case, contact or carrier, or a suspected case, contact or carrier of a contagious disease that, in the opinion of the Governor, after consultation with the commissioner, may pose an imminent and significant threat to the public health resulting in severe morbidity or high mortality, the Governor or his or her delegee, including, but not limited to the commissioner or the heads of local health departments, may order the removal and/or detention of such a person or group of persons by issuing a single order, identifying such persons either by name or by a reasonably specific description of the individuals or group being detained. Such person or group of persons shall be detained in a medical facility or other appropriate facility or premises designated by the Governor or his or her delegee to comply with subdivision five of this section.”
 
The bill references severe morbidity, but the evidence may not support that concern, judging from this year’s measles outbreaks. From September 30, 2018, through August, 2019, 1,114 New Yorkers contracted measles across a population of 19,542,209, which equates to a 0.01% prevalence rate. The outbreaks were concentrated in specific areas:

Update on Merck Mumps Whistleblower Case

by Bob Snee

Kenneth Frazier Merck
Merck CEO Kenneth Frazier

Latest update on the filings in the Merck Whistleblower lawsuit claiming fraud in connection with the mumps portion of the MMR vaccine.

After nearly 10 years of stalling and delaying tactics, the case has finally proceeded to the point where the merits of the claim are about to be decided.

Both sides think there are no disputed issues of fact and that they are entitled to judgment in their favor, having filed motions for summary judgment on October 25th. If there are no material fact issues, there is nothing for a jury to decide and a judge can rule that based on the admitted and undisputed facts as well as the law, a party should win (or lose) its lawsuit.

The whistleblowers have filed a motion for judgment against Merck, and Merck has filed three motions claiming it is entitled to summary judgment. The first motion filed my Merck is attacking the whistleblower’s theory of their claim based on an efficacy-based theory of falsity. The second motion is only against one of the whistleblower’s, Stephen Krahling, and the third motion, claims that all of the whistleblower’s claims are barred by the statute of limitations (whether or not the claims are true and valid).

Each side will have an opportunity to try to defeat the other’s motions for summary judgment by submitting Declarations and legal memorandum that either creates a disputed issue of fact, which would then need to be decided by a jury, or by showing that even if all the facts are true, the law does not support the position of the party making the summary judgment motion.

The contents of the documents in connection with these motions are being filed under seal, so other than the name of each document being filed, we don’t have an opportunity at this time to know what either side is saying regarding the facts that aren’t is dispute, or how the law applies to those facts.


After the motions are fully briefed by both sides and oral argument is likely scheduled, there are three possible outcomes. Either the case could be decided in favor of the whistleblowers, the case could be decided in favor of Merck, or there could be disputed issues of fact which would require the case to go to a jury trial to decide the facts.

The following are the titles of the 4 documents containing the Motions for Summary Judgment:

RELATORS' MOTION FOR SUMMARY JUDGMENT AGAINST MERCK filed by STEPHEN A. KRAHLING, JOAN A. WLOCHOWSKI

First MOTION for Summary Judgment on Relators' Claims Based on an Efficacy-Based Theory of Falsity filed by MERCK & CO.'

Second MOTION for Summary Judgment Against Relator Krahling filed by MERCK & CO

MERCK'S THIRD DISPOSITIVE MOTION FOR SUMMARY JUDGMENT ON TIME-BARRED CLAIMS AND DAMAGES


Facebook Censorship Means Sites Like Age of Autism Are More Important Than Ever

Banned-books2-censorship-quoteBelow is Del Bigtree's report on the questioning of Mark Zuckerberg by Rep. Bill Posey (R) of Florida. Zuckerberg is clear that the goal is to stop conversation, debate, education and opinion on vaccination. There will be a default position on Facebook that vaccines are always safe and effective for every single human on the planet. Injury will be ignored and denied. Death will be ignored and denied. The utter destruction of pediatric wellness will be ignored and denied. It's not a coincidence that Zuckerberg's wife is a young pediatrician whose maiden name rhymes with Pan, as in Richard Pan.

Both Zuckerberg and his wife are unable and/or unwillingly to process the concept of vaccine injury. Of freedom to choose a medical procedure. Of the right to say "NO." America is moving toward the equivalent of rape by vaccination, and I do not say that to be glib. When the government demands you inject yourself and your children with a product for which the consumer/patient bears 100% of the risk while there is NO LIABILITY to either the manufacturer or the doctor, nurse, random CVS tech who administers it as it generates profit that would make Croesius blush, I think it's fair to call that assault with a chemical weapon.

As social media lurches toward full censorship and the pushing of agendas many of us can not fathom, Age of Autism and other sites by brave people like Del Bigtree, Robert Kennedy Jr and others become safe haven for American freedom.  Read us. Share our posts. Donate to us. We are NOT going away. Dan would never allow it. Nor will I. Kim

From The High Wire with Del Bigtree.

Florida Congressman Bill Posey grilled Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerburg at a recent House Financial Services hearing.

Posey stated, “I support vaccinations of children and adults, but I also support open and frank communication about the risks of vaccination,” Posey told Zuckerberg. “You testified that you believe in giving people a voice. Is Facebook able to assure us it will support users’ fair and open discussions and communications about the risks as well as the benefits of vaccinations?

Zuckerberg said anti-vaccination users on Facebook have the same rights to expression as others, and their views aren’t censored. However, he said, they aren’t publicized, either.

If someone wants to post anti-vaccinationtent or they want to join a group where people are discussing that, we don’t stop them from doing that,” said Zuckerberg. “But […] we don’t go out of our way to make sure our group recommendation systems show people or encourage people to join those groups. We discourage that.

From AHRP: Vaccine Experiment Atrocity In India: Human Infection Model

AhrpIt appears that vaccine manufacturers are ever more impatient to reap high profits from new vaccines — especially since they have entered into “public-private” partnerships with governments. Increasingly, government officials oblige this greed-infected industry with laws mandating new vaccines. And public health authorities around the globe have become marketing auxiliaries for vaccine manufacturers.

A report in the Economic Times of India, confirms that the Indian health ministry is working with the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR), the Department of Biotechnology, and the Drug Controller General of India (DCGI) as they embark on a medical atrocity – that is, to conduct clinical trials in which human beings are deliberately infected with deadly diseases in order to test the efficacy of experimental vaccines. The India Infection Research Consortium has named these experiments: “controlled human infection model (CHIM)”

This “controlled human infection model” is no different than the medical atrocities committed by the medical establishment under the Nazi regime....(continue reading on AHRP)

Development of a National Vaccine Strategy in the Works

F3BE7A15-24E8-4E22-A351-FF9B8803FA31This should be a platform discussion for 2020 candidates, including the sitting President.

AGENCY:

Office of Infectious Disease and HIV/AIDS Policy (OIDP), Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health, Office of the Secretary, Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

ACTION:

Notice.


SUMMARY:

The development of a National Vaccine Plan (NVP) was mandated by Congress as a mechanism for the Director of the National Vaccine Program (as delegated by the Assistant Secretary for Health) to communicate priorities for achieving the Program's responsibilities of ensuring adequate supply of and access to vaccines and ensuring the effective and optimal use of vaccines. The most recent NVP, released in 2010, provided a comprehensive 10-year national strategy for enhancing all aspects of the plan, including vaccine research and development, supply, financing, distribution, and safety; informed decision-making by consumers and health care providers; vaccine-preventable disease surveillance; vaccine effectiveness and use monitoring; and global cooperation (http://www.hhs.gov/ nvpo/ vacc_ plan/ index.html). To help inform the development of the National Vaccine Plan 2020, HHS is issuing a Request for Information (RFI). The RFI will solicit specific information regarding the priorities, goals, and objectives in the next iteration of the NVP, remaining gaps, and stakeholder perspectives for the 2020-2025 timeframe.

DATES:

To be considered, comments must be received electronically at the email address provided below, no later than 5:00 p.m. ET on October 24, 2019.

ADDRESSES:

Responses must be submitted electronically, and should be addressed to NVP.RFI@hhs.gov.Mailed paper submissions and submissions received after the deadline will not be reviewed.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

With U.S. vaccination rates above 90% for many childhood vaccines, most individuals have not witnessed firsthand the devastating illnesses against which vaccines offer protection, such as polio or diphtheria. According to a recent study, routine childhood immunizations among U.S. children born in 2009 will prevent 20 million cases of disease and 42,000 premature deaths, with a net savings of $13.5 billion in direct costs

and $68.8 billion in total societal costs.[1] In contrast, adult vaccination coverage rates have remained persistently low, with only modest gains for certain populations in the past few years.[2] As a result, the standards for adult immunization practice were updated in 2014 to promote integration of vaccines into routine clinical care for adults.[3]

Despite the widespread availability of effective vaccines, vaccine-preventable diseases (VPDs) remain a significant public health challenge. In particular, rates of non-medical exemptions for childhood vaccines are increasing,[4] and there have been recent measles outbreaks in the U.S.[5] and globally, due to growing vaccine hesitancy and coverage levels below the threshold needed for herd immunity. With an estimated cost of $20,000 per case of measles to the public sector in 2016,[6] the economic consequences of this and other VPDs, as well as the health consequences, are significant. Furthermore, few adults in any age group are fully vaccinated as recommended by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices. Large disparities in vaccine coverage by race/ethnicity persist, with African Americans, Hispanics, and Asian Americans lagging behind whites in nearly all vaccination coverage rates.[7] VPDs such as pertussis and hepatitis B continue to take a heavy toll on public health,[8] with 18,975 cases of pertussis and 3,409 (22,000 estimated) cases of hepatitis B infections reported in the United States in 2017.[9 10] In light of these challenges, strengthening the vaccine and immunization enterprise is a priority for HHS.

RFK Jr Kicked out of Church: Vaccine Censorship Rolls on

Something wicked this way comesNote: Thank you to James Grundvig for this in depth report on the travesty in Harlem, New York over the weekend at a church in Harlem. Robert F. Kennedy, Jr was mistreated so badly that had this been ANY other celebrity or dignitary or politician in Harlem, let alone a KENNEDY, this would have been the top news story on every cable and network news channel. But the topic of vaccination has been scoured from the news unless it's to say that we need more more more more and that those who are not fully vaccinated are a dangerous threat to the nation. We are under attack. Our right to take care of our children is in jeopardy. Those of us who have vaccine injured children are facing the choice of school or expulsion because of the removal of the religious and medical exemptions. If not today, as in New York and California, tomorrow.

Something wicked this way comes. Remember, come November.

From VAXXTER.COM.

James Grundvig, Investigative Reporter

The war to silence vaccine injuries came to a head on a leafy autumn Saturday in a Harlem church overlooking the Hudson River. I witnessed the display first hand when I attended the three-hour event, “The Harlem Children’s Health Forum” on October 19, 2019. The event had been set up weeks before with Reverend Al Sharpton scheduled as one of the keynote speakers. But the firebrand reverend, the enforcer of rights for the African-American community, abruptly dropped out of the forum two days before putting the event and its location in doubt.

The forum’s host and producer, Curtis Cost, author of the 2010 book “Vaccines Are Dangerous,” continued to negotiate with the church on Friday, narrowing its scope from a four-and-a-half-hour event down to three hours.

Clearly, Big Pharma and its proxies moved swiftly to subvert and prevent the forum from taking place. No doubt, chasing Sharpton away from defending his own community was no small victory for Big Pharma and the bought politicians of New York City.

One of their proxies, Dr. Peter Hotez, has refused to debate RFK Jr. but has never refused to take millions in research money from the vaccine manufacturers, launched into a Twitter war with Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.’s non-profit Children Health Defense the week before the scheduled event. Hotez attacked the event and its location—Harlem, New York—in the most obscene way.

Professor Peter Hotez, MD, PhD, tweeted

And debate what? It’s like debating whether or not smoking causes cancer. Or whether seat belts are safe. There’s nothing to debate. There’s only #Science vs a band of miscreants who monetize the internet, sell fake books, phony autism cures, or those just desperate for relevancy

Has also said in a separate tweet: “I don’t engage in ‘calling people names’, but I’ve asked you halt the predatory targeting of vulnerable populations, Somali Immigrants (sic) in 2017, Orthodox Jews in 2019, and now African-Americans in 2020 (sic). So far: 71 hospitalized, 18 in the ICU. Just please stop.”

Let’s take a look at how Professor Hotez defines a “vulnerable population.”

The Somali Vulnerable Population

Without adding context to his “predatory targeting” race-baiting screed, Hotez failed to support his vaccine Molotov cocktail with facts. No matter. Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., addressed the issue in a 2017 article, “Somali Parents’ Rational Concerns About Vaccine Safety.”

In the detailed scientific referenced article, RFK Jr. wrote:

Ohio to Fund Programs to Prevent Custody Relinquishment for Severely Behavioral Children

Money puzzleNote: Don't punish progress. $8 million in direct funds is a start. Most states have nothing for families, like many in the autism community, whose children have severe behaviors and aggression. The boy featured in the story has autism.

Ohio sets aside $31 million to support families with children who have complex behavioral needs

The state is setting aside $31 million to support families whose children have complex behavioral health needs and require help from multiple systems. The pot includes $8 million in direct aid so that parents won’t have to surrender custody to get the treatment and services their children need.

For most of the past five years, Mark Butler hasn’t had good answers for the anguished parents who call to say they had to surrender custody to get the behavioral-health care their children so desperately need.

But when his phone rang Tuesday?

“I was able to say, ’Go to the Ohio Family and Children First Council tomorrow and apply for help, and let’s get your boy back,‴ said Butler, a parent advocate who lives in Whitehall.  Read the full article at Dispatch News.


New York State Overrides Doctor's Recommendation

State says bow down"valid medical reasons

Scrutiny of vaccine exemptions banishes some from schools

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — Carl and Kerri Schwartz say they have good medical reason for not vaccinating their disabled 11-year-old son, Thorn, and until recently his local public school went along with their family doctor’s advice.

That changed, the Schwartzes said, when New York state did away with religious exemptions for vaccines in the middle of a measles outbreak, and then clamped down on medical exemptions like theirs. Thorn is now barred from his school in Fairport while his parents challenge the district’s rejection of his exemption.

Thorn Schwartz has autism, a developmental disorder that affects each child differently, and his father said a new state policy is leaving little room for exceptions.

“It’s just so specific for that patient. If that doctor can’t tie a particular vaccination to this particular child’s body, it’s just denied. Period,” Carl Schwartz said.

Amid a flurry of proposals to end personal-belief exemptions for vaccines in states around the country, families like the Schwartzes and others say the restrictions that passed in New York have led to unbending scrutiny and, in some cases, decisions that overrule the guidance of family doctors and force children into home-schooling.

New York this year became the fifth state to require all students except those with valid medical reasons to be fully vaccinated, when lawmakers eliminated exemptions on religious grounds.

(Hint: The State will tell you that there are no valid medical reasons.)


Adult Human Unaware of Danger of Fluorescent Lightbulbs Shattered into Open Trash

Retro stupidYesterday I was at the dump, excuse me, transfer station, in my town.  We have private curbside pick up in my town, and when I got divorced, trash removal was important to me, but pricey, so I dumped the service and drive twice weekly to dispose of my garbage. The transfer station has a large bay, like a garage, in which there is a pit. You heave household trash into the pit. It's cathartic. My boxed, preserved House of Bianchi wedding gown made a particularly nice "clunk" when it hit the bottom two years ago.

Parked next to me, a man took a long, fluorescent tube out of his fuel efficient car. I thought, "No way, he's not going to...." Sure enough, he marched into the bay to heave it into the pit. I ran next to him, "You can't do that! The tube is loaded with mercury! It's toxic! There's a special drop off for CF and tube lights!!!" 

"There is? I didn't know that."

CRASH. Explode. Mercury vapor is now filling the pit and about to waft up to us.

I wish I knew who he is. I'd send him a copy of Trace Amounts, the story of how a broken tube light on a construction site launched Eric Gladen into years of disability including most of the signs of autism. 

Imagine how many of these bulbs are in in our trash. Especially the CFL's that pretend to be real lightbulbs instead of toxic bombs.  But measles. Right?

HPV Vaccine For All: The Obscene Public Farce In Our Midst

Cevarixzby John Stone
 
Having just succeeded in foisting Gardasil 9 on to boys in the UK the operation is on the move again - the idea now, as spotted by Christina England in Health Impact News, is that everyone including the elderly should have it.
 
This is how it goes: 12 September an article is published on-line  in International Journal of Infectious Diseases but not yet in hard copy 'HPV vaccination: are we overlooking opportunities to control HPV infection and transmission?' (Vorsters, Van Damme & Bosch). it states in conclusion:
 
Based on the discussion above, we would like to call for further investigation and documentation of the potential public health benefits of vaccination of HPV-positive women. For modellers, these data would provide an additional effect that should be considered when designing HPV vaccination impact models exploring and quantifying the herd protection observed in population programmes. Finally, these additional modes of protection may also reduce the existing reluctance to vaccinate Ben lansing gardasil(young) women post-sexual debut or known high-risk groups such as sex workers.
 
The article is couched in speculative terms, yet two weeks later Xavier Bosch is in the Mail on Sunday with cheer-leader Margaret Stanley of the University of Cambridge demanding that the vaccine be given to everybody: 'Now give every Adult the cancer-fighting HPV vaccination and 'save thousands of lives', experts demand as evidence shows the jab can slash cancer risk for grown ups too'.
 
If this seems like jumping the gun it is actually how it has always been: the benefits were always entirely speculative, the vastly documented harms relentlessly denied. Once again, we are seeing a piece of theater: the evidence of benefit is conjectural, the experts in the study conflicted up to their eye-balls:

Secret Court Hearing Takes Son with Autism Away from UK Mother

The Child Catcher from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

It was a cold day in February five years ago when a psychologist sent by the local authority issued a chilling warning to Sinead: Give up your rights to protect your son or we will take him from you.

After 25 years of caring for someone with autism, including winning a judicial review to ensure funding for his education, Sinead was not too scared by the threat. 

‘There is not a court in the land that would do such a thing,’ she replied.

One month later, police turned up on her doorstep with a council official to say that a secret court hearing had empowered the authorities to seize her son Martin. 

At the same time, social workers arrived at the farm where Martin was enjoying work experience and told him that they needed to take him into safety since his parents were unable to care for him – and then put him in a care home two counties away.

Why Is Our Name The Age of Autism?

Dan Obit HeadshotHi, friends. We've been online since 2007 as Age of Autism. We post on a wide range of content, and sometimes I am chided for content that is NOT about autism. When our founding editor Dan Olmsted was with UPI, he wrote a series of columns that he called, "The Age of Autism' about the rise of autism. He kept hearing that the Amish did not have autism at anywhere near the rate the non-amish population, and being a Yale trained journalist, he sniffed a hell of a story. Little did he know that this story would take over his career and his heart, causing both love and ache.

Each Friday before his death, I would eagerly await his Editor's post for Saturday. Dan was sometimes pithy, sometimes his posts took a long form. He never failed to artfully dissect the story and lay it out in terms we could all understand.

I miss Dan Olmsted.

The Age of Autism has grown more dire. As the early 90s birth cohort enters adulthood we see a lack of services and supports. Families who spent their last dime on treatments, therapies, for whom cure was a goal, not a swearword, are exhausted. Most of us have not caught the brass ring - our kids are still severely impaired by autism.  At the same time, there's a flood of  toddlers being diagnosed and their outcome is no brighter. I talk to young parents who are in the diagnosis process. NOTHING has changed in the 20 years since my Mia and Gianna were diagnosed by a callous jerk of a neurologist in Cleveland, Ohio. Parents of newly diagnosed kids still do not know where or how to begin. School is not enough. Early intervention is not enough. Pediatricians have a sum total of ZERO to offer in terms of treatment.  My district took in eleven students into the autism classroom this year. 11! Districts across the nation are battling a new student body - violent, chronically ill, uneducable in any standard classroom. And Nero fiddles.

Children Banned From School: Attorney Statement on Sullivan-Knapp v. Cuomo (Steuben County)

October 9, 2019

Attorney Statement on Sullivan-Knapp v. Cuomo (Steuben County)

We are extremely disappointed by the fainthearted and incohesive decision filed today by Judge Wiggins, but we are encouraged by most of the content of the Judge’s decision.

Judge Wiggins acknowledged that the New York legislature “callously disregarded” the religious beliefs of 19.54 million New Yorkers when removing the religious exemption to vaccination without holding “any committee hearings or substantial debate”. He wrote Water fountainthat the legislature’s actions led to the “unconscionable consequence” of 26,000 healthy children being denied access to New York schools. He ruled that “the danger to the public was somewhat overstated” in Judge Hartman’s Albany decision. He stated, “children not vaccinated because of religious exemptions make up less than 1% of the population, which hardly seems like a public health crisis”. Meanwhile, the rationale which the legislature used to repeal the religious exemption was itself overstated and nonexistent public health crisis, to which the expert affidavits attest.

Yet, despite including the above in his decision, Judge Wiggins ultimately denied the preliminary injunction, which would have eliminated the “unconscionable consequences" of the repeal bill while this case progresses to trial. He writes near the end of his decision that “precedent appears to give the legislature the authority to bar the doors (to school) to the unvaccinated". It seems he ruled this way because he believed he had no other choice to “precedent”, but this is not entirely accurate.

Sullivan-Knapp v. Cuomo is a novel case of first impression. This gives Judge Wiggins the opportunity to create new precedent in his decision. In the history of the United States, there has never been a case based solely on a state constitution involving the removal of a religious exemptions to vaccination.

Merck's Mumps Component of MMR Has Been in Lawsuit Since 2010: Krahling and Wlochowski v. Merck & Co.

Mumps can't playAs you read about students coming down with mumps, pleae remember that two whistle-blowers  who worked for Merck itself blew the whistle on their employer for the lies and dangerous sales tactics for a faulty vaccine.  Below is a full post from HuffPo from 2014 that discusses this case. Usually we excerpt, but HuffPo is likely to delete their post soon, as all vaccine related content is being purged.

United States ex rel Krahling and Wlochowski v. Merck & Co.

Keller Grover LLP represents Stephen Krahling and Joan Wlochowski in a False Claims Act case originally filed in 2010 and now pending in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, United States ex rel. Krahling and Wlochowski v. Merck & Co., Case No. 10-cv-4374.  Krahling and Wlochowski allege in their complaint that their former employer, Merck & Co., defrauded the government for more than a decade in an ongoing scheme to sell the government a mumps vaccine that is mislabeled, misbranded, adulterated and falsely certified as having an efficacy rate that is significantly higher than it actually is.  The federal government purchases more than half of all vaccines sold in the United States, including the mumps vaccine.  While the United States declined to intervene, it  filed a Statement of Interest in response to Merck’s motion to dismiss making clear the government has “a strong interest in the outcome, even though it has not intervened in the case.”  The government appeared at the hearing on Merck’s motion along with counsel for Krahling and Wlochowski and emphasized its position for the Court.  Merck’s motion to dismiss was subsequently denied.

Merck Has Some Explaining To Do Over Its MMR Vaccine Claims

Merck now faces federal charges of fraud from the whistleblowers, a vaccine competitor and doctors in New Jersey and New York. Merck could also need to defend itself in Congress: The staff of representative Bill Posey (R-Fla) -- a longstanding critic of the CDC interested in an alleged link between vaccines and autism -- is now reviewing some 1,000 documents that the CDC whistleblower turned over to them.

Lawrence Solomon
Columnist

Merck, the pharmaceutical giant, is facing a slew of controversies over its Measles-Mumps-Rubella (MMR) vaccine following numerous allegations of wrongdoing from different parties in the medical field, including two former Merck scientists-turned-whistleblowers. A third whistleblower, this one a scientist at the Centers for Disease Control, also promises to bring Merck grief following his confession of misconduct involving the same MMR vaccine.

The controversies will find Merck defending itself and its vaccine in at least two federal court cases after a U.S. District judge earlier this month threw out Merck's attempts at dismissal. Merck now faces federal charges of fraud from the whistleblowers, a vaccine competitor and doctors in New Jersey and New York. Merck could also need to defend itself in Congress: The staff of representative Bill Posey (R-Fla) -- a longstanding critic of the CDC interested in an alleged link between vaccines and autism -- is now reviewing some 1,000 documents that the CDC whistleblower turned over to them.

The first court case, United States v. Merck & Co., stems from claims by two former Merck scientists that Merck "fraudulently misled the government and omitted, concealed, and adulterated material information regarding the efficacy of its mumps vaccine in violation of the FCA [False Claims Act]."

New York Board of Regents Monthly Meeting: Public Banned with Plywood Over the Door

New York Regents doorThis seems impossible at best and a fire code violation at least. Public turned away from the monthly meeting of the Board of Regents. Plywood covering the front door of the Education Department in Albany, and employees with IDs hustled in with security through a side door.  John Gilmore reported that close to 100 tax paying citizens were turned away.

This is what vaccine policy has done to education in the Empire State. Public education is not for the public. This is horrifying.

Here is the list of Regents in New York.


Del Bigtree and Robert Kennedy Jr On Current State of Vaccination in US and Globally

Choice_mainFrom our friends at Child Health Safety:

In a rare and extended interview, both Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and Del Bigtree take on the many complex problems that dominate the current vaccination program in the U.S. and around the world. Journalist Katia Txi recently sat down with both icons in the medical freedom/vaccine safety movement to provide their perspectives on everything from how they got involved with these issues, to the historical underpinnings of a corrupt process and what we need to do as a movement to be successful in bringing truth and justice into the equation. This must-see interview will resonate with seasoned advocates as well as those new to the movement, and is an excellent resource for educating friends and family members on why advocates are so passionate about protecting medical freedom.



Sex? Pass the Salt. Politics? Dig in. Religion? More Gravy? Vaccines? Kaboom.

Mad men dinnerThere used to be a saying that one should never discuss sex, politics or religion at the dinner table. The topics were too highly charged and sure to cause agita. Today, there is only one topic in the USA that we can not discuss and that's vaccines. Take a look at what happened when a mobile flu shot business posted that it would be at a barbershop in Idaho on Facebook. The business owner, a nurse practitioner, made a critical error. He added an insult at the end of his post. And he knew it. "Anti-vaxxers need not reply."  Fatal. Dumb. Way to be professional.

MERIDIAN — Brad Bigford thought his Facebook post might get a few comments and “maybe one or two, like, angry emoji faces” from people who oppose vaccinations.

That’s usually what happens when he posts about immunizations, he said.

Instead, the Facebook page for his company, Table Rock Mobile Medicine, became ground zero for the vaccine debate.

Bigford is a nurse practitioner whose mobile health care business goes to people’s homes and other sites in the Treasure Valley to deliver many of the services available at urgent care clinics. He posted Monday afternoon on Facebook that the business will offer flu shots Friday at a local barber shop, Fred’s Reel Barbershop in Meridian.

In the first day, the post reached about 18,000 people. It averaged two comments a minute during waking hours, he said.

By Wednesday afternoon, it had reached more than 70,000 people and gathered 1,800 comments. Bigford had enlisted three other nurses to help manage the flood so he could see patients. Read more here.

Goldfish Crackers Go “Healthy”

52894AD3-9C0C-4290-B38C-7FB8DF27AD6CI saw this bag of Goldfish baked crackers in the Stop and Shop yesterday and was brought back to my own kitchen in Ohio, 19 years ago, when I hosted a neighborhood playgroup. Bella was just a month old. Mia and Gianna were 3 and 4 years old. I brought up the conversation about dye in food. I had printed out some information about red, yellow and other dyes and their effect on children and left it on the island where I was serving coffee and healthy snacks.  I remember being shocked that not a single Mom picked up the paper.

When I saw this bag of Goldfish touting "Non-GMO! Organic wheat! Color Free!" I was pleased to see progress.

Parents should have the choice of what to put into their children's bodies.

Right?

National Autism Association offers FREE Halloween Calling Cards to Make Halloween all Treat No Trick

Trick or Treat NAA cardLeave it to our friends at the National Autism Association to come out with such cute and useful calling cards for families who Trick or Treat with a person with autism.  The card may come in handy as the blue pumpkin (for autism) could be confused with the teal pumpkin (food allergies!) on a dark evening. Remember when pumpkins were just orange?

You can download and cut out four styles here.

NAA is the leader in safety projects for people with autism including the BIG RED SAFETY BOX. They are a "kitchen table organization' and run on a slender shoestring (don't we all)  unlike Big Blue (and Big Pink, in full swing this month for breast cancer "awareness.")  Consider a donation to their work, won't you?  Thanks.

Closing Institutions In Pennsylvania Means Nowhere to Go for Many

FutureSeveral years ago I had the honor of speaking at the VOR annual conference in DC.   This group is really important and I invite every AofA reader to get to know them. While many are fighting to limit housing choices, VOR takes a rational approach.  For some with severe disabilities, an "institution" that has been home for decades is HOME.  We don't call dementia care facilities institutions, but what are they?  As the autism epidemic continues to grow and children age into adulthood, where are many to go? I just read on a special needs FB page about a Mom who overheard a worker telling a consumer with autism to "SHUT UP!!!" over and over in a WalMart.  One person knows another etc in the groups and it turns out this young man lives in a group home. With workers who in PUBLIC tell him to SHUT UP which means in PRIVATE they do much worse.  I'm not against any living situation that works for a family. And we ALL accept that nothing is perfect. If you think about it, some severely affected adults with autism NEED and thrive in an "institution" - a living site that is designed for autism. Safe. Engaging for their intelligence. Staff able to handle and help severe behaviors. SAFE. SAFE. SAFE.

During my speaking gigs, I always make the joke, "Well, I have three daughters with autism so we ARE a group home."  Insert laugh track here. It's not joke. I'm going to die. And where will my girls live? Where will your kids live?

VOR posted this blog entry  from the DD Newsblog (which is not part of VOR) yesterday on Facebook in response to news out of Pennsylvania in September about closures.

PA Governor announces final decision to close two of four state operated facilities for people with IID without consulting residents, families, or state legislators

After a long hiatus from The DD News Blog, I am picking up where I left off with Susan Jennings' compelling testimony before the federal Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee on July 23, 2019. 

Susan Jennings' severely autistic son suffered for years in abusive community care, often in a toxic over-medicated state, until the Jennings went to court and gained admission for their son to an Intermediate Care Facility for individuals with intellectual disabilities (ICF/IID). White Haven Center in Luzerne County, Pennsylvania, has the right combination of services to control his maladaptive behaviors and a setting that provides close supervision and the safety he needs to thrive. [See "Joey's Journey" for a full account of the ordeal that led to White Haven Center]

Blaming Social Media for Vaccine "Hesitancy"

Thanks to our John Stone for sharing this article from The Lancet, which blames social media for vaccine hesitancy. If I were to read about the beauty of owning unicorns 24/7/365 on social media, I would not go looking for a UnicornSmart store to purchase one as a pet. Social media isn't perfect. And much of it is indeed claptrap. But, for those of us who know vaccine injury through ourselves or our loved ones, social media has been like a light house to warn others.  PM Boris Johnson calls vaccine safety information "superstitious mumbo jumbo."  That's incredibly insulting to the researchers, scientists and individuals who have devoted careers and lives to vaccine safety.

What about e-cigarettes? I'm not defending or condemning them.  But smoking has killed millions of Americans. And Brits. I've never been addicted to cigarettes so I don't know what it's like to crave or quit. Vaping came into being to help curb smoking tobacco cigarettes. This is a laudable - a safer nicotine delivery system for those who do not want to quit smoking.  There are have been deaths from vaping. And rather than clamping down on the messengers, the nation went into "protect kids, stop vaping," mode. CDC is all over it. "Untested in pregnant women!" Yes, sounds familiar to us.   Why? Because cigarettes are evil and vaccines are angelic, as we have been taught. If only life were as black and white.

Vaccine misinformation and social media

On Aug 19, 2019, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson outlined plans for a summit of social media firms to discuss how to promote accurate information about vaccination. The announcement accompanied the news that WHO no longer considers the UK to have eliminated measles.

Coverage of the second dose of the measles–mumps– rubella (MMR) vaccine in the country has fallen to 87%, lower than the 95% required for herd immunity. “I am afraid people have just been listening to that superstitious mumbo-jumbo on the Internet, all that antivax stuff, and thinking that the MMR vaccine is a bad idea”, commented Johnson on a visit to a hospital in southwest England. “That's wrong. Please get your kids vaccinated.”

R is for Reverse: NY Assemblyman David DiPietro Seeks to Restore Religious Exemption

Protect-Religious-Freedom-SignvFB-403-403Note: It takes guts to buck the trend.  Yesterday was Halloween, many schools no longer celebrate because it conflicts with some religions.  Christmas break is called Winter Break, a reasonable change, not everyone celebrates Christmas. So religion IS taken into account in school. Also, if anyone can explain the logic of how a child with Hepatitis B can attend school, but a child without Hepatitis B and not vaccinated can not attend school, please enlighten us.  The logic is so unsound and unAmerican. The comments that are in favor of eliminating the Religious Exemption follow the same, drumbeat - "vaccine preventable diseases - keep your filthy kids home - how dare you endanger my child." We don't have a vaccine for 5ths disease - slap face. It's one of the pediatric viral rights of passage - no one is upset over it.

John Whittaker
editorial@ObserverToday.com

At least one member of the state Assembly wants to reinstate a religious exemption from vaccination requirements to attend public schools in New York state.

Assemblyman David DiPietro, R-East Aurora, introduced legislation earlier this week to amend the public health law to reverse legislation signed earlier this year ending religious exemptions for vaccinations required before children can attend public schools. DiPietro’s legislation would allow parents or guardians with genuine and sincere religious beliefs against vaccinations to forego the vaccinations. It would also not require a certificate as a prerequisite to register an unvaccinated child in public schools.

DiPietro’s legislation faces an uphill road to passage. Control of the state Assembly won’t change before the end of the legislative session, and the Assembly approved ending the religious exemption for vaccines 84-61 on June 13. In the state Senate, the vote was 36-26. Gov. Andrew Cuomo is unlikely to sign the legislation even if it did pass, and DiPietro would be unlikely to garner the votes necessary to override a gubernatorial veto.

COURT BATTLE

A judge has reserved decision on a request to block a New York law that eliminated religious exemptions for student vaccines.

If Reporters Were Honest

Jimmy OlsenBy Ted Kuntz

In the black and white world of the mainstream media, there is no controversy here.  Vaccines are “safe and effective”.  Everyone should get them.  Vaccinated children have immunity. 

Unvaccinated children spread diseases.

In the real world, more and more parents don't believe these claims.  They are increasingly skeptical about vaccine safety.  In fact, studies have shown that the better educated parents are, the less likely they are to participate in the recommended vaccine schedule. 

Reporters can't understand this.  The networks and newspapers have given us years of coverage featuring experts  all vouching for the safety of vaccines. “The science is settled”, we are told. No further research or discussion is needed.

Of course, this isn't authentic science or journalism. 

Real science is never settled. Real science asks real questions and demands real answers. Real science asks – Is what we are doing working?

Real journalism involves uncovering the truth. If reporters were honest, they'd do more than regurgitate talking points from vaccine promoters.  They would truly investigate why more and more parents and scientists are questioning the claims of vaccine safety and effectiveness.

This isn't about the science. This isn’t about honest journalism. It never has been.  It’s about marketing a product for the for-profit medical industry. It’s about selling an ideology, regardless of the merits of this ideology. It’s about making our children (and soon adults) a captive-market for the pharmaceutical industry.

We Need a More Sophisticated Discussion

We need a more sophisticated discussion on this matter; one that moves beyond simplistic and often vitriolic rants on ‘anti-vaxxers’, and instead offers an in-depth examination of the merits and safety of individual vaccine products.

We also need to help people to understand the difference between ‘vaccination’ and ‘immunisation’. These words are used interchangeably, even by so-called ‘experts’, but these words are not the same. Vaccinated children can be infected and infectious, and therefore are not immunized; and non-vaccinated children can be immune from infection and not infectious.

We need a clear definition of what constitutes ‘immunity’, and a critical examination of the questionable and temporary ‘immunity’ provided by individual vaccine products.

We need to examine whether vaccinated children have better overall health than unvaccinated children.

Buffalo New York: New York’s repeal of vaccine exemptions creates unintended consequences

New yorkNote: One might go so far as to call the unintended consequences "side effects...."   Perhaps we should alert the VAERS?

Correct me if I am wrong, but did this law also create a crackdown on ALL students' medical records, so that any student not fully vaccinated was flagged and contacted, not JUST students with a religious vaccination?  Was this law pushed through to create an instant DEMAND for vaccines? Were sales lagging? Not enough kids in the special ed system? Stocks piling up and doctors were Marie Kondo'ing the shelves?  WHAT?  If a child has an RE, Mom and Dad have particular and personal reasons for not vaccinating per the CDC schedule. I can not imagine these parents racing to the pediatrician for up to "catch up."  So why the "sudden" lack of availability?  If New Yorkers who know could chime in, please do so. 

New York’s repeal of vaccine exemptions creates unintended consequences



WIVB TV,  BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB)–Keing Taylor, 11, loves school–his favorite subject is math–but the Buffalo third grader has been sitting home all week because the two medical clinics where he went to get vaccinated were out the vaccine he needed.

One of the clinics told Keing’s mom, Rebecca Graves, they could not get a fresh supply of the vaccine until November, “He can’t be out of school until November 4. He is a high honor student.”

UK Mutated Strep Strain Causes Scarlet Fever and 9x More Toxin

Scarlett fever
Vintage photo from http://sos.ri.gov/virtualarchives/items/show/736 with our thanks.

Age of Autism has reported on the increasing Scarlet Fever cases in the UK over the years: 

Record Cases Of Scarlet Fever In The UK -- Is the Nasal Flu Vaccine Responsible? Part I

Record Cases Of Scarlet Fever In The UK -- Is the Nasal Flu Vaccine Responsible? Part II

Record Cases Of Scarlet Fever In The UK -- Is the Nasal Flu Vaccine Responsible Part III

Record Cases Of Scarlet Fever In The UK -- Is the Nasal Flu Vaccine Responsible Part IV

Here we are, about a year later and the UK news is exploding with this:  New strain of scarlet fever-causing bacteria discovered amid surge in diagnoses

Some important quotes from the article:

  • The researchers said guidelines for diagnosing and treating throat infections might need to be updated to take into account the new strains and that developing a vaccine against strep A is important. 

  • Research in collaboration with PHE identified the increase as deriving from a mutated strain of the streptococcus A subgroup emm1 – known as M1UK.

  • Dr Elita Jauneikaite, first author of the new study, said: ‘There is still uncertainty around the cause of the rise in scarlet fever – and whether it is a result of practice change, population or environmental factors.

Let’s add more quotes from the actual Lancet study:

  • An unprecedented year-on-year increase in scarlet fever notifications, the underlying basis for which remains unclear,3,4 has been seen in England since 2014. 

  • emm1 was infrequent in 2014, contrasting with the increase we observed between 2015 and 2016, when genotype emm1 S pyogenes became the dominant cause  

  • Phylogenetic comparison of UK emm1 sequences with available international sequences from North America, Nordic regions, UK, and southeast Asia (appendix p 28)9–11 confirmed that M1UK strains were distinct from the globally disseminated pandemic emm1 strains

The BBC Files: Overwhelming Conflicts

image from www.rescuepost.comThis evening the BBC screens its documentary The Conspiracy Files: Vaccination Wars.  While vaccine program critics on both sides of the Atlantic have cooperated with this production do not expect any fair reporting: in fact the BBC long ago committed itself to the doctrine of false equivalence i.e. it does not matter how strong or rational the evidence is they will defer to the government-industry consensus. Even the use of the term "conspiracy" has slid into innuendo. Meanwhile, the documentary has been shared with the media but not the participants. Betrayal is their watchword.

Age of Autism's British editor, John Stone, writes:

Pre-publicity suggest the program makers will try to make out that commercial conflict is not an issue. Given such preposterous stance it is very hard to know where to begin or end.  Nevertheless, it might be instructive to post three submissions to UK Parliamentary bodies published by them.

PB 1584 John Stone’s response to letters from the Scottish Government and the JCVI

I hope it is in order for me individually to respond to the letters from the Scottish government and the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation as supporting witness in Angus File’s petition.

The JCVI Secretariat (1) have now responded with a defence of Prof Pollard’s appointment which I would like briefly to answer from public documents.

The code of practice of 2013 (cited by Mr Earnshaw as current in his letter) states in section 42 (2):

If a member has in the last 12 months received, or plans to receive a financial payment or other benefit from a business or representative body relating to vaccines or any other product or service that could be under consideration by JCVI...including... holding a directorship or other paid position...the member must declare this interest... If this interest is specific to an agenda item and the payment or other benefit is connected specifically with the product under consideration, the member will be required to absent him/herself from the discussion and any subsequent vote.

From California to the New York Island This Land Was Made for the Vaccine Compliant

Segratated NY school child w backpack
Banned from classes because of vaccination status in 2019, New York State (posted w parental permission)


In the New York state, some 26,000 healthy schoolchildren have been banned from attendance because of their vaccination status.  Police have been brought in to protect.... whom? The parents protesting that their children are unwelcome and have been criminalized? The staff including teachers who HAVE NOT been UP IN ARMS over the fact that the children they serve and claim to "love" are no longer in the seats? Where are the teachers who preach anti-bullying? Who patrol recess grounds hoping to help a lonely child find a group to play tag. Where are the music teachers whose students proudly sing "America the Beautiful," and "This land is your land, this land is my land,"?  Where are the principals and superintendents with their fists in the air in solidarity with the tax paying families who provide their healthy salaries???

Segrated School NY child with sign I want To Go To School
"I want to go to school."

California has 55,000 kids (and growing) who will be sitting at home instead of getting an education when their exemption repeal takes effect. Connecticut is eyeing the same repeal as New York. The goal is not health. The goal is max, unified vaccination status, regardless of parental rights, patient rights, possible injury or privacy. This land is NOT my land. I don't recognize it.





The BBC Files: Gullible Journalists Led By The Nose Over DTP (600 Payments In 3 Years)

image from www.rescuepost.comTomorrow evening the BBC screens its documentary The Conspiracy Files: Vaccination Wars.  While vaccine program critics on both sides of the Atlantic have cooperated with this production do not expect any fair reporting: in fact the BBC long ago committed itself to the doctrine of false equivalence i.e. it does not matter how strong or rational the evidence is they will defer to the government-industry consensus. Even the use of the term "conspiracy" has slid into innuendo. Meanwhile, the documentary has been shared with the media but not the participants. Betrayal is their watchword.

Age of Autism's British editor, John Stone, writes:

According to a preview in the Dundee Courier by Paul Whitelaw:

"This depressing report canvases the opinions of people who believe that the authorities are hiding the truth about vaccines. We also meet scientists who know for a fact that immunisation saves lives. Harmful side-effects are extremely rare. The conspiracy theorists refuse to accept this. Why? Widespread online misinformation and alarmist media coverage, all of which dates back to a thoroughly discredited study of whooping cough vaccines in the 1970s."

This is a story, of course, about gullible journalists. The "thoroughly discredited study" is no doubt the one by that good and honorable man Prof Gordon Stewart - later, Bill Inman, one of the founders of the UK yellow card reporting scheme reported in his memoirs 'Don't tell the patient'  the he had never seen anyone worse treated than Stewart was by the UK Department of Health. Inman himself commented how very few of the severe injuries from the old DPT vaccine ever got recorded. He states that from his data analysis it was at least ten times higher than the 1 in 300,000 that the Department of Health “was clinging to”. He noted:

Children who had developed a temperature or had screamed repeatedly or had muscular spasms or convulsions after the first injection, had sometimes been given further doses of the vaccine with catastrophic results.

In a recent letter to BMJ Rapid Responses 'The Benefits of DPT' I wrote recently:

Mara Kardas-Nelson [1] should also note that as result of DPT controversy and the UK Vaccine Damage Payment Act of 1979 there were 600 payments in the period 1978-81 (1978/9: 36, 1979/80: 317, 1980/1: 256) [2,3]. The rhetoric behind the legislation was that injuries were rare but this was not borne out by the record [2,3]. The act enabled the government to retrieve the reputation of the programme amid adverse publicity by acknowledging the principle of harm but no one knew how many awards there had actually been - and initially there were a lot. This would also not take account of any deaths.

According to Mogensen et al, the introduction of DPT to Guinea-Bissau in 1981 was associated with a 5 fold increase in the rate of death [4]:

No More Shame! Vaccine Educated Must Speak Up!

Speak out2Note: For many years, we have played nice, and now, like Yankee Gals and Dixie Chicks alike, we're not ready to place nice any longer. We've avoided controversy. We've played by the rules of polite society. We've kept out mouths shut to protect our kids. We've been TROUNCED by pharma and public health officials and we've lost many of our rights to choose vaccination (or not) for our children. We, the "grown ups" are next. Vaccines will be tagged along with insurance, licenses, the right to fly and more. It's coming. John Gilmore of Autism Action Network wrote the following piece. He's right. We've played it safe.  I recently sat in a meeting with many very well to do young parents. I mean the kind of "well to do" that speaks of Mummy and Daddy and Upson Downs and Hedge Funds. They were all concerned about the repeal of the religious exemption in CT that is looming and they each said they had told "no one" (some not even family) that they had not vaccinated their children. We have locked ourselves in the closet. 

I wrote about my childrens' vaccination status in my memoir - no closet for me. (Just this past weekend, I was looking through Gianna's vaccination records.)  I felt it was my duty to readers.  Do you think others have a duty? WHERE ARE THE CELEBS in California whose kids can't go to school? Did they buy exemptions? Is there a source for back alley exemptions that politicians might be using? Kim

AAN
USA: It is time to come out of the closet

You can't fight for your rights and hide at the same time

It is time for our community to “come out of the closet.” We can no longer hide behind religious and personal belief exemptions and hope to protect our children, or even ourselves. The global drug industry that produces vaccines is no longer willing to tolerate us. They want to force everyone to use their products, and they increasingly have the police power of government to back them up. As the largest advertiser in America they have the clout to buy completely one-sided media coverage, and they are using their power to generate hate against us. California, New York and Maine have already lost their rights. It looks like New Jersey, Connecticut and Massachusetts could be next.

Once upon a time we could keep our mouths shut and stay under the radar. Those days are over. Either we stand up and fight or get ready to roll up your children’s sleeves. There is no in-between anymore. You can’t hide and fight at the same time. It is time to choose.

At the foundation of every injustice is a lie. The lie that vaccines are safe for everybody. The lie that vaccines do not cause autism. The lie that autism is just a difference. The lie that the government is doing everything possible to protect your children. The first step to correcting the injustice is to refuse to accept the lies any longer. Coming out is all about refusing to accept the lies anymore, lies about reality, about ourselves, about what happened to our children, about the world that makes this possible.
