I See How Hard You Work

Feel seenIt's the day after Mother's Day. We hope you had good day, whatever that means to you. Many of us live a Through The Looking Glass version of parenthood, Moms and Dads alike. Same could be said for siblings. Some are grieving the loss of their child, like Tim and Sheri Welsh, whose son Tanner passed away in the Spring. Like Harry and Gina Tembenis who lost their Elias so many years ago. Holidays are just different when your child has a developmental disability. I'm of an age where my friends are celebrating their kids' weddings and first grandbabies. Not to be for me. Some of are single parents (raises hand) pulling double duty for our kids. The world moves forward, and often you feel left behind. Left out.

The girls and I drove to Massachusetts to visit my Mom for the day. It's not a bad drive, 143 miles North on I95 from Connecticut through Rhode Island into Massachusetts. We left at 10:00am and were home at 7:00pm. As I was getting a quick meal together for them, my doorbell rang. Standing there was my neighbor, a lovely Mom of 3 kids from 8 to late teens. She handed me a bouquet of flowers and said:

"You are a strong Mother. I see how hard you work. Happy Mother's Day."

I can't tell you the last time I felt so appreciated. Such simple words. Really struck my soul. I felt seen.I didn't even know that was important to me. I hope you feel seen from time to time too.


Simple Question

89E5A519-432E-440B-A9E7-55DA88923172 I asked this simple question on Twitter and Facebook. Why can women share abortion stories but not vaccine injury stories? Roe v Wade has been catapulted into the headlines, after a SCOTUS information leak about a pending decision. Ironic that tomorrow is Mother's Day.  Choice. That's the topic. Some get choice, others don't. Some approve of it, others deny it. Is it complicated or simple? Does choice mean choice, even if anathema to your ethics or beliefs?

Below is an example of the stories circulating while we’re censored, shadowbanned and deplatformed. 


Is Mental Illness a Disease? Is Autism A Mental Illness?

3E215918-4219-4690-AC93-5B6968E9C0C7Country music legend Naomi Judd took her life after a long battle with depression. She was 76. Her daughter Wynonna wrote a heartbreaking Tweet that caught my eye for more than the sadness of the loss. She wrote, "We lost our beautiful mother to the disease of mental illness." For years, we've been told that autism is not a disease, it's a psychiatric diagnosis. And we are castigated for referring to it as such. That said, Autism is classified in the DSM-V, which is a manual of mental disorders.  Per CDC: The American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual, Fifth Edition (DSM-5) provides standardized criteria to help diagnose ASD.  If Naomi Judd can say that her mother had the disease of depression, why can't we have the same "courtesy" and discuss autism in terms of disease, which has a cause, a set of symptoms , treatments and cure. Oh - that's why.

We're beyond the ping pong matches of neurodiversity blogs versus Age of Autism that were prevalent in the 2000s and 20-teens. Not many of the bloggers are still active. And autism has been shunted aside, like the Little Engine That Couldn't while other diagnoses have chugged full steam ahead for media attention and social change. 

I sent out the Tweet shown yesterday. We're solidly tamped down, shadow banned, whatever you want to call having zero reach to our 36,000 followers. So we're asking here if you think of autism as a disease. And if the parlance even matters to you in the grand scheme of the zillion things you need to help yourself or your loved one on the spectrum.

The Hidden Truth of Autism vs DS No One Talks About

Theatre_masks_mattlxNote: We thank Safeminds for sharing this study A Down Syndrome Advantage in Special Needs Parenting? . We've been telling readers for 15 years that autism is not treated like other developmental disabilities.  Why? For all the years of trying to convince the world that autism is a neurodiversity, the reality behind closed doors is sometimes different. And when we venture outside, it can be stark. People get a visual tip off of Down Syndrome and "get it," and then we hope are understanding and kind. At least for that first interaction. When you have a child with autism, the disability is invisible until it presents itself in behavior and differences from what typical children can do.  I'm saying this as nicely as I can. The stares can be cruel when our 7 year old can not speak, or when our 21 year old is carrying a baby blanket, or when our 15 year old is stimming her hands. We do not mean to discount the challenges of Down Syndrome, especially the health and heart issues. There's plenty of worry and heartache to go around.

This weekend, my daughters went to see Sesame Street Live. They are in their 20s, not toddlers. I know that they were welcomed in the arena, and that the cast members dancing on stage surely saw and recognized autism in three the beauties in the front row who were much older than the majority of the audience.

Autistic children and adults face discrimination. They don't go on all the class trips.  They don't get invited to birthday parties. In adults services, agencies are "cherry picking" individuals for day programs. Those with high levels of need because of behavior are not being accepted into programs. Typically, those are the guys with autism. It's hard to hire and retain a 1 to 1 for a non-speaking individual who has challenging behaviors. You can work at Amazon delivering packages all day for more money than most Day Service Providers earn.  And for residential care the picture is even grimmer.

I know a wonderful family with one child with DS and one with profound autism. The child with DS appears to have many more opportunities than her sister because she is so bubbly and sociable. Both girls are cherished by their parents. There are families whose kids have a dual diagnosis. I'd love to hear from them, and any family that can chime in about your personal experience. Thanks.

Study Finds that Marriages Dealing with Down Syndrome Have Less Stress than Marriages Managing Autism

Parenting a child with any type of developmental disability is generally recognized as a situation which causes varying levels of stress on mothers and fathers. Recently, new research has investigated how this additional stress affects special needs parents’ marriages. In this current study, researchers examined the experiences of 213 couples living in the United States and Canada. Among these couples, 102 had a child with autism and 111 had a child with Down syndrome. The study’s findings showed that nearly a quarter of mothers and 20% of fathers of children with autism categorized their marriages as distressed. In comparison, the couples of children with Down syndrome, only 10% of mothers and 2% of fathers said the same. The study’s authors believe their data suggests that there may be a “Down syndrome advantage” as well as a “husband advantage” in special needs parenting. The authors believe the husband advantage could be related to husbands (typically) not being as directly involved in daily caregiving responsibilities. The study also focused on a term called “uplifts,” which was defined as positive experiences that offset day-to-day stress. The researchers found that parents of children with Down syndrome reported more uplifts than the parents of children with autism and, in turn, had less stress and greater marital equality.

Ring Doorbell

Blue doorBy Kim Rossi

This was my memory from Facebook, TEN years ago.

Doorbell just rang. A little boy who rode the sped bus with Bella 2 years ago was at my door, clutching a doll.  Alone.  I knew instantly he had wandered from his house about 1/8th mile away, but on the highway. I walked him home. His sister said "Mom is sleeping." Cousin (mid teens) was really concerned. "We didn't see him leave."  I told them better me than an ambulance or a cop delivering bad news.  He knew "Bella's house." God bless the little guy.  And his guardian angel for getting him to my house and not the RIVER across the street or the highway.

I wonder where this boy is today at age 18 or 19? Wandering will always be a worry for many of us. Cameras and door chimes help. But we are human. We have less wandering in my home than in the past now that the girls are women in their 20s. Once, one of my girls left the house and was busting uphill toward the end of our road, which was, at the time, right at the end of an exit to a 4 lane highway. I was calling out to her, "Stop! Stop!" She kept going. A man was walking his dog, and I screamed at him, "Please stop her!"  He watched her motor by him without a care. I was so angry. I ran as fast I could, I tripped and fell, I kept going and snatched her to safety. I said nothing to him as we walked by him, on the way back home. I knew I'd have blown my stack. He was a neighbor. HAH! We can NOT rely on strangers. Despite decades of awareness - no one really has a clue about autism beyond the once in a high school career prom "date" and other feel good, do nothing stories. And now we're onto "acceptance." It's a joke. Not even the day programs whose MISSION it is to serve the disabled population want the young adults with a high LON score - Level of Need. That means behavior. They are being turned away here in Connecticut even with decent budgets from DDS of $55,00 - $100,000 a year. They LOSE money for organizations. The State privatized care years ago, closed their facilities. And now? The doors are CLOSED.

Why were Ingredients Associated with Clots Permitted in Covid Injections?: the British Regulator Stonewalls

June RaineWhy were ingredients known to be associated with clots permitted in Covid injections?: the British regulator stonewalls

By John Stone

This is a matter I first wrote about a year ago: as reports began to accumulate of clotting in recipients of the Oxford/AstraZeneca Covid injection a well-known biochemist pointed out to me that adenovirus component present in this product (as well as the Johnson & Johnson and Sputnik) had been a known risk for thrombocytopenia for two decades before these products were assembled at breakneck speed in February 2020. This presented a simpler issue than the mRNA products of Pfizer and Moderna where many of  the potential risks - though not all - were relatively speculative, since our governments had apparently authorised these products either knowing exactly what was likely to occur, or with alarming incompetence having failed to spot it. Back in April last year was the first time I asked had the MHRA (the British regulator) done due diligence.

Ultimately, in November 2021 I wrote to the CEO of the MHRA, June Raine, asking her point blank:

‘Can you explain why the MHRA permitted the use of adenovirus in Covid vaccines bearing in mind that it was known to be associated with clots?’

I did not hear back for a long while, and then on  22 February 2022 I received the following acknowledgement from someone signing himself “Peter”:

Our Reference: CSC 89455

Dear Mr John Stone,

Thank you for your email.

We have reviewed your enquiry and this has been passed on to our Licensing colleagues for further input.

It was an interesting day for this to occur because it was the day the Metropolitan Police announced that they would not be pursuing further criminal investigations into the Covid affair. I thanked “Peter” and waited a month and in place of an answer re-submitted my enquiry as a Freedom of Information request (which received an automatic acknowledgement). Then when the statutory 20 days for answering such a request had elapsed, earlier this week, I enquired again and received neither answer or acknowledgement. We have perhaps to conclude that we have reached the end of the line and the MHRA  cannot explain in any shape of form why they allowed so many people to be hurt, injured or even killed. 

The MHRA’s first assessed the connection between between the AZ product and thrombocytopenia as likely on 7 April 2021 but what they failed to acknowledge was that they were only geared to receiving a small fraction of reports as stated in a notice of 2018:

It is estimated that only 10% of serious reactions and between 2 and 4% of non-serious reactions are reported.

They knew therefore the risk to patients on which they continued to roll out the product was likely in the region of ten times worse than stated in their published reports, while fatalities were also reported at a much higher rate than for Pfizer and again might be ten times worse according to their own rule of thumb.

The issue of how far the British regulator which is an agency of UK Department of Health and Social Care and  is 100% funded by the industry, works for the public rather than the industry is more than ever moot, and this instance is complicated by the fact that the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care - at the time the controversial World Economic Forum advocate Matt Hancock  - was also a sponsor of the development of the product.

As long ago as 2005 the  House of Commons Health Committee remarked:

The Department of Health has for too long optimistically assumed that the interests of health and of the industry are as one. This may reflect the fact that the Department sponsors the industry as well as looking after health. The result is that the industry has been left to its own devices for too long.... The industry is by no means solely to blame for the difficulties we describe. The regulators and prescribers are also open to criticism. The regulator, the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA), has failed to adequately scrutinise licensing data and its post-marketing surveillance is inadequate. The MHRA Chairman stated that trust was integral to effective regulation, but trust, while convenient, may mean that the regulatory process is not strict enough.  

And in 2020 I wrote in BMJ on-line:

Two years ago officers of the MHRA were defensive of their inability to detect the narcolepsy risk with the Pandemrix vaccine in the swine flu scare of 2009 nine years before…, despite heavy criticism..In 2020 they face a much more daunting task of assessing for licensure and monitoring a plethora COVID-19 vaccines, each of apparently novel design. I hope they are now able to give the public assurances that important lessons have been learned, and not just that they always get it right…

Yet nothing which has gone before seems to compare with the present recklessness over human life, and it is urgent government and regulator are held to account. There are many complex questions that the Covid episode has thrown up, but this one is as simple as it gets. Asked the most basic question they cannot, will not answer and manifestly there is something to hide.

Health Freedom Defense Fund Inc, et. al. v. Biden, et. al.

Mask litterHealth Freedom Defense Fund Inc, et. al. v. Biden, et. al.

Health Freedom Defense Fund, the lead plaintiff in the case that resulted in the lifting of the federal Travel Mask Mandate issued the following statement in response to the U.S. Department of Justice’s announcement that it would appeal:

The Justice Department issued a statement in response to the ruling stating that it will appeal if CDC determines that the mask order “remains necessary for the public’s health[.]”

DoJ’s statement is perplexing to say the least and sounds like it comes from health policy advocates not government lawyers. The ruling by the US District Court is a matter of law, not CDC preference or an assessment of “current health conditions.”

If there is in fact a public health emergency with clear and irrefutable science supporting CDC’s mask mandate, does it not warrant urgent action? Why would DoJ and CDC not immediately appeal?

HFDF is left with no option but to conclude that the Mask Mandate is really a political matter and not at all about urgent public health issues or the demands of sound science. While DoJ and CDC play politics with Americans’ health and freedoms, HFDF trusts individual Americans to make their own health decisions.

HFDF is confident that Americans possess ample common sense and education to understand that there are real questions about mask efficacy and risk and that CDC’s policy reflects neither.

What is clear is that Americans have already cast their votes about continued masking as evidenced by the multitude of videos and photos taken by passengers on airplanes showing the smiling faces of the vast majority of passengers responding to the overturning of the mask mandate with cheers as they happily exercise their freedom to remove their masks.

HFDF is confident Judge Mizelle’s ruling will stand.

Health Freedom Defense Fund (HFDF) Wins Federal Lawsuit Challenging the Biden Administration’s Travel Mask Mandate

HFDFNote:  The mask mandates have been particularly difficult, and even discriminatory, for people with sensory issues and autism. Some good news from Health Freedom Defense Fund. While airline travel may be seen as a luxury, public transportation is not.

Health Freedom Defense Fund (HFDF) wins federal lawsuit challenging the Biden Administration’s Travel Mask Mandate. Judge struck down CDC’s travel mask mandate.

Without any public comment, or serious scientific justification, CDC bureaucrats imposed a sweeping Travel Mask Mandate applying to every American over the age of two.”

— Leslie Manookian

SANDPOINT, ID, UNITED STATES, April 18, 2022 / -- Calling it a “victory for basic American liberty and the rule of law,” the Health Freedom Defense Fund (HFDF) today won a federal lawsuit challenging the federal government’s Travel Mask Mandate.

The decision, by a U.S. District Court judge in Florida, invalidated the order by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) requiring that masks be worn on airplanes, trains, buses and other travel conveyances and in transportation hubs.

“Without any public comment, or serious scientific justification, CDC bureaucrats imposed a sweeping Travel Mask Mandate applying to every American over the age of two,” said HFDF President Leslie Manookian. “There are laws that set boundaries for federal agencies to protect individual freedom and the Court clearly found that CDC exceeded those limits. Unelected officials cannot do whatever they like to our personal freedoms just because they claim good motives and a desirable goal.”

The lawsuit was brought by HFDF and two individual Florida residents, specifically alleging that the CDC exceeded its statutory authority and failed to abide by the federal Administrative Procedure Act.

In her 59-page opinion, Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle of the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida detailed how the CDC circumvented the requirements requiring public comment, and how the agency failed to justify the Mask Mandate under the specific language of federal law governing health emergencies.

“The Mandate exceeded the CDC’s statutory authority, improperly involved the good cause exception to notice and comment rulemaking and failed to adequately explain its decisions,” Judge Mizell wrote.

“The court agreed with our main arguments and rejected the CDC’s justifications for the mask order,” said Daviller Law Group (DLG) attorney Brant C. Hadaway. “The judge found that the CDC exceeded its statutory authority, and that the CDC’s interpretation of its authority was not entitled to deference.”
“An agency is also supposed to provide notice and comment and reasonably explain itself,” Hadaway said. “The CDC’s mask order fell short of both requirements.”

Connerjack Oswalt Leaves us Wondering About Wandering

Open-door-fieldA 19 year old with autism left home in September of 2019, and was neither seen nor heard from by his family, until concerned police saw him shivering outside of a gas station hundred of miles from home, and asked him to come warm up in their car. They used instinct (his communication was different) and compassion to unravel a mystery.

Missing California teen found safe in Utah two years laterMissing California teen found safe in Utah two years later

In 2011, a debate raged on whether the CDC should create an insurance code for WANDERING so that medical professionals could add this diagnosis to protect with autism. We know that children wander and drown regularly. Most of us have experienced at least one hair raising and heart stopping instance of our children disappearing. Ari Ne'eman, then the darling of the neurodiversity movement, pushed hard against the code (which was ultimately created and is in use):

Ari Ne’eman, president of the Autistic Self Advocacy Network, argues that there is no research to suggest that wandering is medical in nature rather than a behavior that should be addressed through a social support system.

“For a lot of people with significant impairments, trying to leave a situation can be one of the only ways for them to communicate that they are facing abuse or facing an overwhelming situation. If this is put into a medical context then thought may not be given to why,” says Ne’eman whose group is working with The Arc, TASH, the National Disability Rights Network and others to oppose the CDC plan. Source Disability Scoop

The news reports offer no clues as to why he left home at age 16, or whether he attempted to get help or contact his family.  The family moved from California to Idaho while their son was missing. We may never know why Connerjack Oswalt left home.  His stepfather drove to Utah to identify him, while his mother remained in Idaho.  CNN aired an emotional video of his Step Dad telling his Mother that he'd been found. He has not returned home, but is in a treatment facility.  He was able to stay alive. How? Where? With whom? Was it wandering or purposeful leaving? If Ne'Eman's analysis holds true, even if leaving was fully voluntary, his days must have been fraught with danger. It's quite story. Hug your kids.

Sniff, Sniff. What Does Free Speech Smell Like?

Like this, perhaps? Those of a certain age will remember Musk cologne  (pronounced Col-ogg-nee as if by Bill Murray on SNL) - as a popular scent decades ago when hippies roamed the Earth.  Now the hippies are shutting down free speech faster than you can say, "Don't eat the brown acid."

Of course, my Tweet about this, clever as it was, got marked as "Sensitive." I'm tired of the politicization of social media. Skew right, topple left, platforms should assume we are adults and can decide for ourselves how to conduct our lives. Many of us still have critical thinking skills. We don't melt when confronted with differing opinions. 

Elon Musk is trying to take over Twitter.  Twitter is trying to vaccinate itself - ironically called a poison pill.

Imagine If Twitter Became Open Again

E943C663-E864-4840-A3D1-23EA5B1BFEE4Every so often, I get a returned Tweet on my Kim Rossi Twitter account from an outraged autist (self-described) telling me that I shouldn't proclaim that all people with autism (my description) are non-verbal. I’ve never said any such thing. I don't use that account much any longer. Our Age of Autism Twitter account has over 36,000 followers - but we get few retweets because Twitter has tamped us down, and as of the last 2 months, slapped a warning label on every Tweet that has a photo or a URL link. But the news was abuzz this week as Elon Musk wants to buy Twitter. Can Musk help return open discourse and free speech? He says he will. But will he include "us?"

Elon Musk Offers $43 Billion in Cash to Buy Twitter in Bid to ‘Save Free Speech’

The world’s richest person, Elon Musk, Wednesday offered $43 billion — cash — to buy Twitter so he can “unlock” its “potential to be the platform for free speech around the globe.”  Read the full article at Children's Health Defense.

Another Autism Drowning

WeepThose who sugarcoat history are doomed to repeat it, and children will die. Autism, wandering and drowning are the tragedy of the diagnosis. A diagnosis that has been whitewashed and the public brainwashed into thinking it is something much more benign than the reality. Not every person with autism, or autist, is severely affected or impaired.  Not every person with autism, or autistic, is non-speaking and without a natural instinct to return home or a sense of self-preservation. Not every person with autism, or neurodivergent, is riddled with sleep, GI and seizure issues. Not every person with autism, or #actuallyautistic will face a life of rape, beatings, seclusion, restraint and exclusion from society.

Those who have DSM-V autism, diagnosed as a child likely will.  God bless this, and every person  with autism, who drowns. We are so sorry.


Cops: 4-year-old with autism wanders away from DeKalb apartment, drowns in pond

A massive search for a 4-year-old ended in tragedy Tuesday morning when the boy’s body was pulled from a pond behind a DeKalb County apartment building.

DeKalb police asked for the public’s help to locate Kyuss Williams after he wandered away from his family’s home in the East Ponce Village Apartments off Juliette Road around 6:30 p.m. Monday. They called off the search eight hours later when his body was recovered from the community’s retention pond.

Case In Point

DBEB4997-F04B-466D-8331-DC502D7BDC2EI recently added the BRAVE browser to my phone, along with Duck Duck Go and Google.

Brave asked me to share a message that I am a user - and so I shared it to Twitter.  Twitter slaps a "SENSITIVE CONTENT" warning on every Tweet that includes a photo or a live link.  I've taken to writing a sentence to describe a Tweet and then follow up with the Tweet that has the link.  Even our daily Tweets directly from the blog platform are covered by the content warning.

I am hoping that Elon Musk jumping onto the Twitter board will beam a crack in the darkness of censorship. It's Autism Action, Awareness, Acceptance, Agita month, and we should be able to Tweet to our readers without this discrimination.

AoA Submission on the Terms of Reference for the United Kingdom Covid Inquiry led by Baroness Hallett

Chess coronaNote: See the Covid Inquiry Terms of Reference announcement on 10 March,  below John Stone's submission.

By John Stone

The consultation closes 11.59pm UK time April 7. Submissions can be made until that time here. These are the substantive points I have made to the inquiry on behalf of Age of Autism on their questionnaire.

Please explain why you think the draft Terms of Reference do not cover all the areas that the Inquiry should address.

Insufficient focus on transparency and openness of decision making, suspension of ordinary human rights, free speech and civil liberties, the creation of an atmosphere of coercion over many matters, cronyism: the apparent wilful destruction of ordinary civil society and its economy
Which issues or topics do you think the Inquiry should look at first?
Why nothing was quite what it seemed
Why we were ill-prepared in terms of hospital capacity, supplies
Why we ignored pandemic protocols apparently already in place
Why we accepted the word of Chinese officials about the genetic sequence of the virus, and why so many vaccine designers/companies were instantly confident of the products they were designing
Why we suppressed evidence - now widely accepted - of escape from the Wuhan lab
Why we gaslighted conventional interventions - disregarding doctors already skilled at treating respiratory viruses - and made a break-neck dash for so called “vaccines” with novel technologies
Why we discouraged healthy lifestyles, side-lined issues such as Vitamin D deficiency which has previously been routinely treated by doctors
Why there was widespread use of midazolam
Why a horrendously expensive drug Remdesivir, without any track record, was preferred to well establish safe products like Hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin 
How the Coronavirus Act legislation comprising hundreds of pages (and similar to legislation in other countries) appeared from nowhere
How cronyism was allowed to proliferate at unprecedented levels in government 
Why informed public discussion was restricted on mainstream and social media including many highly qualified voices - why public money was used to promote certain views and suppress others
Why the seriousness of Covid was actually downgraded by the CMOs immediately prior to the first lockdown
Why so many un-evidenced measures restricting freedom of movement and normal behaviour were introduced, heightening fears, while not being taken seriously by government ministers and high-ranking officials 
Why people were left to isolate indefinitely and die alone
Why masks were introduced despite there not being “strong evidence” according deputy CMO Jenny Harries
Why normal ethics, the Nuremberg Code, informed consent were abandoned for injections which had limited trial data, less than complete information about ingredients, hidden contracts etc, amid an atmosphere of gaslighting, bullying and restrictions on those who were not compliant - why the issue of vaccine compliance became conflated with the official ID agenda of the United Nation, organisations such as the World Economic Forum (endorsed by the Prince of Wales on a government website), which has never been discussed with the British electorate

From Gov.UK: Covid Inquiry Terms of Reference

Today (Thursday 10 March) the government has published draft terms of reference for the forthcoming public inquiry into the COVID-19 pandemic.

This follows consultation with the Inquiry Chair, Baroness Hallett, and close work with ministers in the devolved administrations.

The terms of reference intend to cover:

Protect The Kids - It's Never Too Late

"We’re never gonna learn about how safe the vaccine is unless we start giving it. That’s just the way it goes."
Dr. Eric Rubin Member, FDA VRBPAC - one of the guys who decides what vaccines your child needs to participate in life.

Just the way it goes. The way the ball bounces. The way the cookie crumbles. The way the chips fall. La de dah. It's just your children's future.

Imagine if the PARENTS ARE WATCHING PROTECT THE KIDS  campaign had existed 20 or more years ago.  I might be running a blog on early retirement for the wealthy. Hindsight is 20/20. Foresight is moving with alacrity and action to prevent another kind of severe injury to children. We faced autism. Today's under-informed parents face autism plus a host of insidious complications. Some folks might say, "Hey, let them find out the hard way, like we did." We can not allow that to happen.  Better to be deplatformed, banned and censored than to go to sleep at night knowing our neighbors and friends needed help and we stood by with our arms crossing our chests saying "That's just the way it goes."


From Children's Health Defense

The FDA’s Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee (VRBPAC) wants to grant Emergency Use Authorization to Pfizer’s BioNTech vaccine for babies aged 6 months and children up to 5 years old, despite the lack of safety and efficacy to support its use. The only thing standing in their way are concerned parents, grandparents and citizens. Parents are watching, and it is our duty to protect the children.

Parents Are Watching: Campaign To Halt Pfizer's EUA For Babies And Toddlers

Risk choiceNote: We invite you to bookmark and subscribe to the Millions Against Medical Mandates site.

By Larraine AbbeyKatzev, RN, MS, CNS (Certified Nutrition Specialist)


How is it even possible that Pfizer is pursuing FDA authorization and approval to inject even more children with this “poison death shot” as Dr. Vladimir Zelenko calls the COVID-19 shots? They are currently planning on injecting babies 6-months through 4-years with this highly experimental technology, for which we have NO long-term safety data and plenty of short-term damage and horror stories, for children that have virtually zero risk of COVID death or disability.

How does this title strike you? “COVID-19 shots’ effects on fertility, targeting children with social pressure and coercion to get jabbed”: Robert Malone and Candace Owens Interview at

The U.S. has about 73.4 million people from age 0-17. Want to guess how many have died of COVID? CDC reports a total of 1112 as of 3/26/22! While any child death is a tragedy, 1112 children is 0.0015% of our kids—a statistical zero. Multiple researchers report that no healthy kids were among those who died of COVID. Those deaths were children with serious co-morbidities, and some of those deaths may have been WITH COVID rather than FROM it.

So, what could possibly justify risking our entire nation’s 73.4 million children this way? We all know the adage follow the money. Dr. Toby Rogers tells us, “…if Pfizer can get the mRNA shot added to the childhood vaccine schedule, then it will enjoy permanent liability protection under the 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act.” 

The pharmaceutical industry greatly profits by these liability-free, taxpayer-funded vaccines, especially for COVID-19, given their hope to use them repeatedly, and possibly annually, on the entire 7.8 billion population of earth! This appears to explain the aggressive suppression of treatment of any sort, as an emergency use authorization (EUA) cannot legally be granted unless there are no reasonable treatment options.

The manipulation and law breaking in granting these EUAs is breathtaking, and on full display for all to see. Successful early and home treatment are reported all over the internet at such websites as,,,,,

Dr. Peter McCullough, MD, MPH and has estimated that 85% of COVID deaths could have been prevented had this truthful information been promoted instead of censored by the powers-that-be and their lackies in the media. This attempted pharmaceutical capture of mankind represents the greatest crime against humanity in the entirety of world history.

Dr. Rogers shocks the senses in sharing, “Even though Pfizer’s clinical trials of the genetically modified mRNA shot have already failed twice in this age group, Pfizer is planning to submit another application for Emergency Use Authorization…” WHAT? may ask? How is this possible?

Dance Til You Drop

Dancing To A Different Beat

I saw this T shirt in the Men's department at WalMart.  Autism Awareness has become a joke of cheap, China made T-shirts that belittle the reality of the diagnosis from the most profound non-speaking person to the guy or gal who can not find a job or a lover or friends. Everyone suffers, even the #ActuallyAutistic "Nothing about us without us" crowd.

Is your loved one dancing to a different beat? Waltz? Samba? Hip Hop? Disco? Which beat does your funky giraffe like best?  In my house, my 27 year old likes the Sesame Street beat, circa 1997. My 25 year old likes the Nick Jr beat. And my 21 year old likes the beat that Mardi Gras beads make as she shakes them over and over. 

Having seen the world plunged into something a lot like autism in the last two years, my faith in real change from the top is long gone.  Autism is so 2010, it's passe. There's a new kid in town. The department of Health and Human Services flew a purplish flag supporting trans teens this week.

Parents are going to have to dig back into the well of creativity and hard work to craft an adult life for our kids.  I'd better get busy, I have a lot to do before I dance off to my grave.

Happy April.

Hold Your Nose, Here Comes April


Have you planned your outfit for the first day of autism denial & cover up month??  Empty platitudes & false cheer makes a lovely ensemble. Hold your nose, here it comes. Like coming home to the smell of a delicious, warm, gooey cinnamon roll - and you find out it’s just a candle. There’s light, but nothing to eat.

Mendacious New York Times' Warning about Censorship

MendaciousReprinted with permission from the author, Tony Lyons.  The article ran this week as a guest editorial on Dr. Robert Malone's Substack.


Guest Editorial

The New York Times, a bastion of censorship and corruption, warns the world that “America Has a Free Speech Problem.”

By Tony Lyons, President, Skyhorse Publishing

In a bold but clearly disingenuous statement from its famed Editorial Board, “a group of opinion journalists whose views are informed by expertise, research, debate, and certain longstanding values,” the New York Times issued a cautionary statement:

    “For all the tolerance and enlightenment that modern society claims, Americans are losing hold of a fundamental right as citizens of a free country: the right to speak their minds and voice their opinions in public without fear of being shamed or shunned.”

The Editorial Board pounded the point home:

    “People should be able to put forward viewpoints, ask questions and make mistakes, and take unpopular but good-faith positions on issues that society is still working through—all without fearing cancellation…Freedom of speech requires not just a commitment to openness and tolerance in the abstract. It demands conscientiousness…We believe it isn’t enough for Americans to just believe in the rights of others to speak freely; they should also find ways to actively support and protect those rights.”

Of course, the New York Times should be teaching by example. In fact, it has not supported free speech, protected the First Amendment, or allowed honest debate. It has not allowed competing perspectives about the most important issues of the day. It has been a mouthpiece for greedy corporations and corrupt government officials.

In support of their interests, and at the expense of those of American citizens, it censored The Real Anthony Fauci by Robert F. Kennedy Jr. in every conceivable way. It ranked the book #7 on its non-fiction bestseller list even though Kennedy’s book outsold any other book in America that week by thousands of copies. Then it refused to allow Skyhorse Publishing to place an advertisement for the book because it’s censorship division, ironically called “Standards Management,” decided that the book itself constituted misinformation, despite their stated policy that “Standards” only looks into whether an ad itself is “non-defamatory and accurate.”

The New York Times followed up with a scathing hit piece targeting Kennedy as “a leading voice in the campaign to discredit coronavirus vaccines and other measures being advanced by the Biden White House to battle a pandemic that was…killing close to 1,900 people a day.” It accused him of circulating “false information,” without indicating what that information is or explaining why it’s false, and of comparing the government pandemic response to the Holocaust, even though he clearly didn’t do that.

Leslie Manookian at Weston Price Wise Traditions 2021

Weston A PriceThanks to Laura Hayes for sharing this video featuring Leslie Manookian speaking at the Weston Price Foundation Wise Traditions 2021 event about the state of politics, vaccine passports, medicine, digital id coordination, social credit score and much more.  There's a Q&A at the end.  Leslie is Founder and President of the Health Freedom Defense fund.

In 2014, Leslie produced a movie called The Greater Good: THE GREATER GOOD is an award winning character-driven documentary that explores the cultural intersections where parenting meets modern medicine and individual rights collide with politics. The film offers parents, doctors and policy makers a safe space to speak openly, actively listen and learn from one another. Mixing verité footage, intimate interviews, 1950s-era government-produced movies and up-to-date TV news reporting, THE GREATER GOOD weaves together the stories of families whose lives have been forever changed by vaccination.

2014 is a lifetime ago for autism. Since then, there is no longer any sense of urgency or worry for the future of the thousands of young adults with severe autism who are or have have aged out of school, or their families. The focus is on acceptance and awareness of the special gifts, the difference. Can you imagine that? Spend a day in the home of many of our readers, and tell me that autism is a difference. We're about to hit April - and the nonsense will be blooming along with the daffodils.

Raison D'Etre

Hg chartDoes anyone remember why Age of Autism was launched 15 years ago? Hint, it's in the title of Dan Olmsted and Mark Blaxill's book The Age of Autism: Mercury, Medicine and a Manmade Epidemic.  Safeminds posted relevant research this week:

Mouse Model Study Shows Increased Production of Proinflammatory Cytokines after Exposure

New research from Saudi Arabia has investigated the effects of methylmercury chloride (MeHgCl) exposure on BTBR mice. BTBR mice are an inbred mouse strain that exhibit core symptoms of autism-like behaviors. The authors of this new study hypothesized that MeHgCl exposure could be associated with further neurobehavioral and immune dysfunctions in BTBR mice due to their genetic susceptibility of behavioral and immune system abnormalities. To prove their hypothesis, the researchers split the BTBR mice into two groups. The first group served as the exposure group and was administered MeHgCl daily through a saline solution for 28 days. The second group served as the control arm and was given a solution composed of saline only for the same period of time. At the end of the experiment, the researchers observed that the exposed mice had increased stereotypical behaviors (marble burying, self-grooming), imparied social behaviors, as well as locomotor problems. Additionally, the team also found that the exposed rodents had increased the production of CD4+IFN-γ+, CD4+T-bet+, CCR9+T-bet+, CXCR5+IL-9+, CD4+IL-9+, CXCR6+IL-17A+, and CD4+IL-17A+ in the cells of their spleens, which demonstrates immune system imbalances. Furthermore, MeHgCl exposed mice had increased mRNA and protein levels of pro-inflammatory cytokines in their brains and blood serum. The control group mice did not exhibit any of these symptoms or outcomes. The study’s authors believe their findings suggest that MeHgCl exposure further causes neurobehavioral and immune dysfunction in a susceptible host such as the BTBR mice strain. Ultimately, the team feels their results could be used to design better therapies to counteract autism-associated social deficit and immune system dysfunction during MeHgCl exposure.

Have Courage "The Times Retains the Right To Decline An Advertisement"

RFk Real Anthony FauciNote: The Real Anthony Fauci: Bill Gates, Big pharma, and the Global War on Democracy and Public Health is currently ranked #11 on Amazon. 11 is amazing. 1 is better. We encourage readers to buy a copy - the Kindle version is just $2.99 right now!


By Lou Conte

Tony Lyons, the President, and Publisher at Skyhorse Publishing recently crafted an article for the Children’s Health Defense Defender Newsletter in which he detailed the New York Times refusal to run advertising for The Real Anthony Fauci: Bill Gates, Big pharma, and the Global War on Democracy and Public Health by Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

We Tried to Run an Ad for ‘The Real Anthony Fauci’ in The New York Times. Here’s What Happened.

In refusing to run the advertisement, the New York Times responded, “The Times retains the right to decline an advertisement offered to us. This ad goes against our guidelines and as we cannot accept an ad that is misleading, false, or deceptive.”

The Times took issue with a blurb from Noble laureate, Dr. Luc Montagnier - “Tragically for humanity, there were many, many untruths emanating from Fauci and his minions. RFK junior exposes the decades of lies.”

Tony Lyons detailed the Times’ role in the campaign of suppression and censorship of The Real Anthony Fauci. Despite the campaign, the book which exposed the corrupt world around Fauci, became a nation-wide best seller.

Even in the face of establishment media censorship, the truth got out.  

Many who visit the Age of Autism are keenly aware of the on-going censorship and suppression of those who criticize public health officials like Anthony Fauci or who criticize vaccines. The New York Times has been front and center in silencing those who question. For years, the Times has quashed the words of anyone who challenges the public health mantra that “Vaccines are safe and effective.” The Times has labeled those who question vaccines as “anti-science” and “conspiracy theorists.”

Silencing the words of and suppressing writing of a community of people who have the courage to challenge the Vaccinology hegemony pours salt on the wounds of those who have vaccine injured loved ones. It is shocking that a newspaper that was once a bastion of the Free Press now sees fit to engage in the raw censorship of the powerful writing and journalism that Robert F. Kennedy Jr. delivered to the world in the Real Anthony Fauci.

The good news is that many other Americans are now also questioning Big Pharma’s Vaccinology belief system for the simple reason that millions took the COVID vaccines and got sick with COVID. Americans have realized that these vaccines, described as being “96% effective”, simply did not work.

Mandating an ineffective vaccine on millions of people will lead to one nasty public relations problem for the public health establishment and the propaganda apparatchiks who work for them in organizations like the New York Times.

Regarding censorship, Judy Blume once said, “It’s not just the books under fire now that worry me. It is the books that will never be written. The books that will never be read. And all due to the fear of censorship.”

Old Gray Lady Says "Nyet!" To The Real Anthony Fauci Book Ad

Fauci Number 1 meme

Sounds  like a melodrama from the 50s, yes? No. The New York Times,  nicknamed The Old Gray Lady, turned down a full page ad for Skyhorse Publishing's book The Real Anthony Fauci by Robert Kennedy, Jr. Below is a link to the story straight from the publisher Tony Lyons.

We Tried to Run an Ad for ‘The Real Anthony Fauci’ in The New York Times. Here’s What Happened. Skyhorse Publishing tried to place a full-page ad in The New York Times for ‘The Real Anthony Fauci,’ Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.’s bestseller. The ad salesman was thrilled — until he understood what the book was about.

The NYT would not run an ad for a book, here in the United States of America. Let that sink in for a moment. We're sunk. Or are we? We can fight Goliath. And the Gray Lady. We can fight for our freedoms. Here's a quick way to help.

Fauci Says Americans "Must Be Willing" To Readopt Covid Lockdown Features


Fauci said he is encouraged that BA.2 does not appear to cause more severe disease, but warned if the U.S. experiences another COVID wave, Americans must be willing to readopt mitigation measures -- and other experts agree. ABC News March 17, 2022 COVID cases predicted to rise in coming weeks because of new BA.2 variant BA.2 makes up 23% of new COVID cases, up from 7% two weeks ago.


The war in Ukraine has overshadowed most else in the media. But yesterday, Dr. Fauci spoke out on the BA.2 variant of Covid and said "we" should be ready and willing to go back into the [dark, scared, distrustful] "mitigation" measures of the lockdown. One of my daughters' therapists works in Birth to Three services. She is overwhelmed with referrals of children who have fallen way behind in their development - even by the looser 2022 standards of pediatric milestones. A friend's child was uncertain about whether or not he wanted to take off his  mask in school - it just felt safer to be hidden behind a mask. I've read of girls feeling "too ugly" to remove their masks with confidence. Businesses are barely getting back on their feet. And now inflation and energy prices are pummeling all of us again. And Dr. Fauci says we must be willing to go back to all of that - for.... what?

I want to remind readers that Robert Kennedy's Book The Real Anthony Fauci continues to be  important. It has more than 14,000 reviews on Amazon - and 90% are 5 star.  But let's face it, it's a DENSE book, jammed with information and not casual reading for most of us. Still, we owe it to our children, our family members, our colleagues and friends to READ IT and then pass it along to someone else.  Fortunately, Dr. William Gaunt wrote a 4 part review that breaks down some of the highlights. Here are his summary points, the full review follows.

Review of Part 1

  • Regulatory agencies have been captured by the pharmaceutical industry they are supposed to regulate. The result is a relationship that greatly benefits Big Pharma and harms the public.
  • Safe, effective, and inexpensive medicines for early treatment of COVID-19 were and still are aggressively suppressed and made unavailable in the U.S. while several other countries are saving many lives using these same medicines. Why? Because these medicines (HCQ and IVM) would compete with COVID-19 vaccines and favored COVID medicines that generate big profits.
  • The deadly, expensive, and ineffective drug Remdesivir has been promoted as the favored COVID-19 treatment in hospitals.
  • VAERS is intentionally ineffective at identifying vaccine injuries and deaths. Efforts to improve VAERS have been blocked.
  • Fauci has been deeply involved in all of the above. It makes sense when we realize that his first priority is to do whatever is best for Big Pharma. More on this topic in Part 2.

Review of Part 2

  • Fauci’s NIAID ignores chronic allergic and autoimmune diseases which have greatly increased on his watch. (Vaccine ingredients cause many of these allergic and autoimmune diseases.)
  • Fauci’s main focus is developing and promoting very profitable drugs. He is Big Pharma’s BFF.
  • Incontrovertible evidence shows that vaccines were not responsible for the huge drop in mortality from infectious diseases.
  • Improvements in nutrition and sanitation caused infectious disease mortality rates to fall to near zero BEFORE most vaccines were introduced.
  • AZT is horrendously toxic, very expensive, and ineffective against AIDS.
  • Studies of inexpensive and highly effective medicines for AIDS and COVID-19 have been designed to fail. The results of these fraudulent studies are then used as justification for suppressing their use and making them unavailable to doctors and the public. What is a good word for deliberately denying life-saving medicines to sick people? Hint: It starts with an “m”.

These Are My Comments Reviewing Part 3:

  1. Regarding the HIV/AIDS hypothesis, Kennedy wrote on page 178: “From the outset, I want to make clear that I take no position on the relationship between HIV and AIDS.” He then covered in detail the scientific controversy surrounding this hypothesis. (I should have included this quote in Part 3.)
  2. The evidence points to AIDS being multifactorial and not a simple matter of HIV being the only cause of AIDS.
  3. Testing toxic drugs on thousands of orphans is morally wrong. Many of these children were seriously injured and some were killed. Dr. Fauci was in charge.
  4. A deplorable part of science being used by Dr. Fauci and his researchers involves blatant cheating in order to get very toxic drugs approved. The trick is to get rid of the control group which gets a harmless placebo and replace it with a “control group” which gets something as toxic as the drug being tested. This will result in close to the same number of injuries and deaths in both groups and the researchers then claim that these injuries and deaths are not caused by the toxic drug being tested.   
  5. A major effort was made to discredit the science pointing to COVID-19 being a gain-of-function engineered virus that escaped from the Wuhan lab in China. Scientists who joined Dr. Fauci in this effort were richly rewarded with multi-million-dollar research grants.  
  6. It is totally unacceptable for any country to opt out of the COVID-19 vaccines. Several leaders of countries who tried to do this died suddenly and were replaced by new leaders who then welcomed these vaccines. (Important details can be found on page 308.)


RFK with bookThe Real Anthony Fauci, from Skyhorse Publishing

By Dr. William H. Gaunt, NMD

Format of this article

This article will cover highlights from the first 100 pages of this 445-page book. Future articles will cover the rest. The plan is to list page numbers so those who have the book can read more about each nugget and look up the references if they want more information. My comments will appear in parenthesis.

An Author’s Take on Kennedy’s Book

Best-selling author James Howard Kunstler (The Long Emergency and several other books) describes The Real Anthony Fauci as “A massive book about Fauci’s unholy career at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and a virtual prosecution manual, meticulously annotated, that will be used in countless lawsuits against Dr. Fauci, his colleagues who outlive him, and the many agencies and NGOs and perhaps in actual criminal trials of these well-known perps.” (Is this derogatory quote justified? Read on.)

President Biden Was Wrong: Two Industries Have a Liability Shield

Donna and Tim
Donna with Tanner's Dad Tim Welsh at an Autism One Conference

Below is a copy of a letter Ms. Knepple sent to President Biden after his State of the Union address.  There are two industries that manufacture and sell products that are unavoidably unsafe, and  that are shielded from product liability. Guns and the vaccine divisions of pharmaceutical companies.  President Biden was wrong when he said only guns enjoy this shield.  Donna's letter should go to every Senator and Congressperson in the United States of America. 


Donna M. Knepple
6  XYZ Road, Upper
XYZ, NY  12345


President Biden
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
Washington, DC  20500

Dear President Biden:

I watched the State of the Union address and was in utter shock and disbelief when you said, "Look, repeal the liability shield that makes gun manufacturers the only industry in America that can't be sued”. I would like to remind you that President Ronald Regan signed into law the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA) of 1986 (42 U.S.C. §§ 300aa-1 to 300aa-34) giving pharmaceutical vaccine manufacturers and doctors who administer vaccines complete legal liability protection from all vaccine injuries including death. The NCVIA’s purpose was to eliminate the potential financial liability of vaccine manufacturers due to vaccine injury claims to ensure a stable market supply of vaccines, and to provide cost-effective arbitration for vaccine injury claims as a result that stemmed from all the vaccine injuries and deaths caused by the Swine Flu X53A and DPT vaccines in the 1970’s and 1980’s. Do you not recall voting on this bill when you were in the Senate? Henceforth, the reason why vaccine manufacturers gave Congress an ultimatum for complete indemnification or no more vaccines. Due to this industry’s liability shield since 1986 the following examples depict why it is imperative to hold vaccine manufacturers liable again:

  • Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Simpsonwood Secret Meeting, June 7-8, 2000, held in Norcross, GA, re: Thimerosal in Vaccines; Dr. William Thompson, CDC Scientist Whistleblower, re: MMR and Autism, Dr. Frank DeStefano, Former Director of the CDC Immunization Safety Office; Dr. Thomas Verstraeten, Mercury and Autism; Dr. Julie Gerberding, Former Director; Dr. Anthony Fauci, Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP)

  • National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP) Dr. Andrew Zimmerman, Government Witness showed that VACCINES CAN CAUSE AUTISM as in the Hannah Poling case conceded in 2008; on Sept. 10, 2010 the story was leaked in the first ever VACCINE AUTISM CASE AWARD; Soon thereafter, 5000+ Autism Omnibus petitioners were dismissed with callous disregard. 

  • Informed Consent Action Network (ICAN) against U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS), Case 1:18-cv-03215(JMF) Document 18, Filed 07/09/18; revealing THERE HAS BEEN NO QUALITY CONTROL OVER VACCINES MANUFACTURED BY PHARMA FOR AT LEAST 32 YEARS

  • Institute for Autism Science and the ICAN against Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Case 1:2019cv11947-LJL, Document 15, Filed 03/02/20 CDC admits in Federal Court they have NO EVIDENCE that “Vaccines Don’t Cause Autism”

  • ICAN against United States Food and Drug Administration, Case No. 18-cv-11237-VEC, filed 2/10/19, No clinical trials prior to approving influenza or Tdap vaccine for use in pregnant women as an indicated use.

  • MERCK’s Measles, Mumps, & Rubella (MMR) live virus vaccine; Gardasil HPV vaccine; and Zostavax live vaccine; CDC Whistleblower, Dr. William Thompson, MMR and Autism; The infamous Lancet Paper “Ileal Lymphoid-Nodular Hyperplasia Non-Specific Colitis and Pervasive Developmental Disorder”. 1 in 44 with an autism diagnosis as reported by the CDC reported, surveillance year 2018, birth year 2010. The Gardasil HPV vaccine achieved FDA approval in just 6 months with serious and deadly injuries continuing to date.  Zostavax live vaccine used since 2006 was pulled from the market and no longer available in the United States, as of November 18, 2020. 

  • ICAN against United States Food and Drug Administration, results of ICAN lawsuit against FDA reveals that Merck’s Chicken Pox Vaccine, Varivax should never have been licensed.

In case you forgot, while you were Vice President the Obama Administration filed an amicus brief for Wyeth presented in Bruesewitz v. Wyeth, 562 U.S. 223 (2011). Did Wyeth’s Tri-Immunol DTP cause Hannah Bruesewitz’s disabilities? The United States Supreme Court case decision stated that vaccine manufacturers could not be sued for design defects in their products dismissing Hannah’s severe vaccine injury to their product.  Assume arguendo, was this premeditated to further shield Pharma vaccine manufacturers from liability and denying JUSTICE to the 5000+ Autism Omnibus Petitioners dismissed with callous disregard from the NVICP?  I can attest to the consequential frauds and damages, as an Autism Omnibus Petitioner v. Secretary of Health and Human Services, in the United States Court of Federal Claims, Office of Specials Masters, No. 02-1890V, filed for compensation on May 21, 2003, after 9 ½ years of waiting was dismissed on April 27, 2012. 

The Obama Administration also granted whistleblower immunity to Dr. William Thompson, CDC Whistleblower, after he exposed all the CDC senior level vaccine and autism staffers who destroyed data which demonstrated a clear link between the MMR vaccine and autism.  Whatever happened to Dr. William Thompson’s investigation that was started by Congressman Bill Posey on the floor of the House of Representatives on July 29, 2015?

The Incredible Shrinking Voice

E3A9348D-013C-47DF-A887-D47A050C2D53When Age of Autism launched in 2007, a source of great pride and revenue was that we were Google News Indexed.  Our headlines were scooped up and distributed to thousands of potential readers and supporters.  This was a good draw for our sponsors and advertisers. Then? Little by little, we were dropped from searches because we discussed vaccine injury. And now? It's nearly impossible to reach anyone except those who click into our site intentionally.  And we haven't a single sponsor or advertiser.  We DO have amazing, wonderful readers though! I had switched over to Duck Duck Go, and now also use a search engine called BRAVE.

This weekend, The Washington Post ran an article about search engines and platforms are under pressure to take explicit stands against Russia's invasion of Ukraine.  Messaging and information are always part of war, the good guys use it too. Deplatforming was rife during the height of the Covid pandemic. and now, we have a powder keg in Europe. Propaganda will always be with us, with every government, it has been part and parcel of media and government forever. When “we” do it, it’s education. When “they” do it, it’s propaganda. But now that the public has a platform, the rules are changing. What we saw during Covid, and continue to see, vis a vis vaccines, was Orwellian, to use the overused adjective. No other adjective fits as well.  We’ve seen the messaging change for autism too. Acceptance and awareness crept in and took over, treatment and cure were quashed. Here comes April. 

From The Washington Post In Ukraine, tech platforms abandon the illusion of neutrality From Facebook to TikTok to DuckDuckGo, companies that once claimed to be 'unbiased’ are showing that they can take a side after all.

Search results should be unbiased. Social media platforms should be neutral. The Internet should be for everyone.

Though they’ve taken beatings over the years, these sorts of cyber-utopian ideals have proven surprisingly durable — in part because tech companies have insisted that they’re true. The Ukraine war, however, is putting them through a wringer.

From Facebook to TikTok to DuckDuckGo, tech companies are facing pressure to take explicit stands against Russia’s ongoing invasion of Ukraine. With some exceptions, tech has responded to the call, at the cost of its relationships with Russia.

But there’s another cost to doing what many see as the right thing in Ukraine. It requires the tech companies to acknowledge in a very public way that their products and policies aren’t neutral after all — and it reminds us all of their own unchecked power over the world’s information systems...


Autism Bites

4B4F060D-8211-46D3-A2E5-C8D93BDC7516Below is a Facebook status from an autism Mom I've known for many years. Her daughter lives in a residential home and her dental health has plummeted. You might have noticed over the years that many adults with special needs are missing teeth. It's easier to let them rot, and then extract them. However, there is no money for dental implants. My own daughter had a tooth extracted during a hospital based routine filling. I wanted to STRANGLE the dentist with unwaxed floss. He was so blase about it. My father was an orthodontist who practiced dentistry early in his 40 year career.  (Those are my baby teeth in the photo.) Teeth are important to me - and gum and tooth health is very important to overall health. Adult issues in autism revolve around basic healthcare and necessities. Poorly paid and poorly trained staff can blow off hygiene and no one is accountable. And even professionals, like the hygienist mentioned below can be disconnected from usable strategies. Until we all start demanding BETTER.

My bite is much worse than my bark.


Feeling very emotional.

Spent several hours this morning advocating for appropriate dental care for my 29 y/o daughter. I know that many of my fellow Warrior Mamas will be able to relate. Had multiple conversations with her dentist, nurse and dental hygienist. Two were very professional and helpful and one was not. She (the hygienist) suggested in a judgmental manner that I drive back and forth to my daughter’s home twice a day every day. Not only is that impractical; but, it would take 14 hours of time per week. I already brush XYZ’s teeth when I see her on Saturdays. She needs a professional cleaning due to severe tartar and plaque buildup along the gum line. The hygienist tried to tell me that this is normal! Part of the problem during the pandemic was a supply chain issue with the ketamine that Emily needs for sedation and the availability of her doctor to administer it.  Sadly, there are 50 individuals awaiting this kind of care and the dentist only performs these procedures on Friday afternoons.

Response to the Consultation on the “Reform” of the UK Human Rights Act

Action alertBy John Stone

The British government consultation for the revision of the 1998 Human Rights Act grandiosely re-entitled the Bill of Rights closes at 11.59 pm GMT Tuesday 8 March. It is a somewhat elusive document to encompass and after months of indecision I decided on brevity. Unsurprisingly the Johnson government seems more interested in its own rights than the rights of citizens, but it is not always clear where law comes into it. Anyone wishing to comment can write to the email address 

Dear Justice Secretary
Until it can recognise its own failings the government will have no useful contribution to make in the field of human rights, not least because it has itself abandoned humility and common sense.  
The government should bear in mind the old legal adage “hard cases make bad law”. In order to remove the inevitable hard cases the danger is that government restricts the public’s access to the courts even further, bearing in mind that for the ordinary citizen justice is prohibitively expensive anyway, and generally unavailable - for a long time and increasingly governments have considered justice for the citizen an expensive luxury while continuing to liberally fund its favoured enterprises from the public purse. 
Beyond that one can certainly see that the old Human Rights Act has been woefully inadequate at protecting citizens’ rights, notably in the last two years when it turned out time after time that the government advisors who were limiting our lives over what we were supposed to do or not do mostly got things momentously wrong, whether by design or accident. A stock taking of the last two years would suggest objectively that any protection against the use of arbitrary executive power has largely failed. The government scarcely inhabits the moral high ground in trying to extend its rights over citizens, not least because it has performed so poorly in the recent past, and does not seem to realise it.

The government’s claim to support freedom of speech is particularly moot given its moves in the past two years to swamp mainstream media with cash in pursuit of state health propaganda, while leaning on social media to limit or stop legitimate comment - it is not a desirable position when people may not  talk about their health predicaments or criticise government policy in public, being often subject also to foul abuse if they do from government funded sources. It is equally horrifying to see the same machine move into action over Ukraine. The government’s position, both in terms public policy and science, has been the opposite of “open” leading to autocratic behaviour, divisive social policies, economic catastrophe and the compounding of error at human expense. Please allow the public to speak.

Good morning. My dear friend Dr. Theresa Cianciolo (in photo) moved her family to Kyiv last year, to devote herself full time to helping the children of Ukraine - orphans with special needs and children with autism.  She and her husband Scott, a Pastor, adopted orphaned twin toddlers with  Down Syndrome & autism themselves.  They had moved to Kyiv last year and returned to the safety of Vermont a few weeks ago, as the danger escalated.

Part 4: A Few Nuggets from the New Best-selling Book by Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

RFK with bookBy Dr. William H. Gaunt (NMD)

A small fraction of the information in the last 100 plus pages is covered here. Readers are encouraged to read before and after the selected quotes to put things in context. References are available at the end of each chapter for additional information. My comments will appear in parentheses.

These Are My Comments Reviewing Part 3:

  1. Regarding the HIV/AIDS hypothesis, Kennedy wrote on page 178: “From the outset, I want to make clear that I take no position on the relationship between HIV and AIDS.” He then covered in detail the scientific controversy surrounding this hypothesis. (I should have included this quote in Part 3.)
  2. The evidence points to AIDS being multifactorial and not a simple matter of HIV being the only cause of AIDS.
  3. Testing toxic drugs on thousands of orphans is morally wrong. Many of these children were seriously injured and some were killed. Dr. Fauci was in charge.
  4. A deplorable part of science being used by Dr. Fauci and his researchers involves blatant cheating in order to get very toxic drugs approved. The trick is to get rid of the control group which gets a harmless placebo and replace it with a “control group” which gets something as toxic as the drug being tested. This will result in close to the same number of injuries and deaths in both groups and the researchers then claim that these injuries and deaths are not caused by the toxic drug being tested.   
  5. A major effort was made to discredit the science pointing to COVID-19 being a gain-of-function engineered virus that escaped from the Wuhan lab in China. Scientists who joined Dr. Fauci in this effort were richly rewarded with multi-million-dollar research grants.  
  6. It is totally unacceptable for any country to opt out of the COVID-19 vaccines. Several leaders of countries who tried to do this died suddenly and were replaced by new leaders who then welcomed these vaccines. (Important details can be found on page 308.)

DTP Vaccine Discontinued in the U.S., Europe, and Japan

On pages 324-325: “A wave of gruesome brain injuries and deaths followed the introduction of diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis (DTP) vaccines in the United States, and Europe in the 1970s … In 1991, the United States, E.U. countries, and Japan switched to a far safer (but less effective) dead cell (attenuated) vaccine—DTaP—and discontinued use of the DTP jab.”

The Children of Ukraine

Kim and Sammy CYesterday, the world awoke to the news that Russia blitzed Ukraine. For many years, I worked with a behaviorist who began to travel to Ukraine as a Missionary for Special Education. She had children of her own with autism. She described the heartbreak of orphanages chock full of children with Down Syndrome, autism and other special needs. She lamented the UTTER and complete lack of basic services and care, even down to a simple vitamin at birth that can prevent hearing loss in babies with Down Syndrome. There were no classrooms for autism - children stayed at home. So few people walk  the walk that they talk - not she. She adopted twin baby boys with Down Syndrome and brought them to New England, where they were treated with the finest medical care and began to thrive. That's a photo of me holding chunk-a-munk Sammy. But her heart was with the thousands of children who had no one to look out for them, for the parents desperate for ways to help their children. She earned her PhD and began seminars across Ukraine on ABA and how to help children with autism. Thanks to her, programs began to sprout up, families had help. Not long ago, she and her family moved to Kyiv. The returned to the USA 2 weeks ago. I'm glad she and her family are safe. But I think of the children - and wonder how they will fare.

Ask yourself, what would MY family do if bombs rained down on my city, if I had to duck into a subway station as a makeshift bomb shelter, if I did not have the ZILLION things my children needed just to get through the day?  Not to be glib, but imagine a day without Wifi?

Keep the families of Ukraine in your thoughts, especially the children with special needs.


Do Today's Parents Have the Coping Skills Needed to Help A Child with Autism?

Tough question. Do today's parents have the coping skills, the resources, the drive to launch into 5th gear when they have a child diagnosed with autism? Was the 1990s birth cohort of parents a different breed? Or did we have fewer obstacles like a Covid lockdown? When I had three children under 6 with autism, I worked day and night to find answers and get them help - to exhaustion, and still do, 27 years later. But I wasn’t struggling with mental health. I found the biomed community and had support. Is support harder to find today? Seems impossible, but what if the Yahoo group, NAAR, ARI, CAN days weren’t improved as organizations changed and social media came into being?

Abandoning them is the second most extreme example of dereliction of duty. So I ask with all due respect and interest - do today's parents have "what it takes" to cope?  Heather Nicole Adkins, age 32 (hardly a child) is one mother who did not.  A follow up story has a chilling response from her, during questioning when asked why she left her boy on the side of a road on a cold, February day:  “To save him from me,” Adkins replied.  (Source WKYT Cleveland Mother accused of abandoning autistic child speaks out from Scott Co. jail.  Of course, it's a blessing that she did not kill him. But turning him out on a road  where  he was likely to be killed seems premeditated to me. Thank God a stranger saw something that was not normal - and acted. I hope she gets the help she needs. 


COLERAIN TOWNSHIP, Ohio - Colerain Township police say a mother is now in custody after her abandoned, 5-year-old autistic son was found wandering alone last week.

32-year-old Heather Nicole Adkins is in custody in Georgetown, Kentucky, on a local warrant and a warrant issued by Colerain Township police in connection with her son's abandonment. They didn't elaborate on the charges filed.

Investigators said the unnamed boy, described as "non-verbal with Austim," is from Shelbyville, Indiana, about 75 miles away from the Cincinnati, Ohio area.  Fox News Los Angeles Reported

Thinx Versus Victoria's Secret Pink Period Panties

Foil cherries added a sensory issue


Women with autism can struggle with their period. Think about the discomfort of cramps and the sensory issue of wearing a pad. Many years ago, I was explaining these challenges to a friend with a neurotypical daughter, and she asked quite innocently, "Maybe she should use tampons?" Sure, for a young lady who can manage her self care independently, tampons are an option. But for a female who needs full, or even hand over hand assistance, a tampon is out of the question for obvious safety reasons.

Five years ago, one of my daughters decided that pads were no longer comfortable, after years of wearing them.  She took her pad off within minutes.  The results were a disaster. I was at a loss to help her through what I hoped was a stage.  I had heard about period panties but was skeptical. I found a review of THINX, from a company right in New York, and ordered 3 pair. They were a Godsend for us. And now, other, less expensive versions have hit the market, including a line from Victoria's Secret's PINK brand.  Below is a review.

SheThinx Brand

Super HipHugger size L: $35.00 with specials and $10 referral coupons offered regularly

I  invested in 3 pair of SheThinx period panties.  They cost $35 per pair and are reusable. They are beautifully made, substantial without being bulky, very pretty,and soft as SILK. No one would know they aren't just lovely underwear.  They are fully lined. Thinx offers  an ORGANIC cotton line and a line for Tweens. They are tagless, which is a huge plus - no scratchy tags. My daughter slipped them on without issue.  They weigh in at a hefty 73 grams and yet are not bulky. AND THEY WORK! They hold several hours worth of the heaviest flow, without a leak.  You can see their line of products at

The downside?  You have to rinse them very well before washing. I put them in my laundry sink and it's a messy process. Then you  need to line dry them, which takes some time. I place them on a large fan to dry. Also, you have to change out of them and step into a fresh pair. You need to put the soiled underwear  in a baggie to bring home to wash, so if you are at school, or work, or out for dinner and need a change, it can be awkward. Our original panties have lasted several years. Our newer panties are even higher quality, as THINX has continued to improve them. They are worth every penny. We swear by them!

Absorbency area is much larger on THINX

Victoria's Secret PINK Brand
Size Large: $16.50

One of my home care team staff bought a pair of the VS Pink line of new period panty for us to try. They are quite flimsy compared to SheThinx.  The fabric is thin and unlined. The large foil cherries (ahem) decoration on the back added a sensory layer we did not need. And they have 5, count them, 5 tags that will cause sensory issues.  They weigh 42 grams compared to THINX' 73 grams. That said, they come in lots of fun colors, and patterns that most girls would appreciate. The absorbency fabric covers a much smaller area than the THINX - women move, dance, jump, squat, sit, stand, play sports. I think they would be a great backup panty for a young woman who is wearing a tampon and wants to prevent leak stains. Or on a lighter flow day.  Washing was a similar chore: rinse and line dry. They work, though not as well as the THINX in my opinion, because they have a smaller absorbent material area and they are not lined. But the PINK designs are cuter and more fun, which would matter to most girls, just not mine!

Verdict:  An investment in SheThinx is worth every penny. They beat PINK's version in that they are leak free, almost 40%  heavier and lined fabric, beautiful quality, with several colors, an organic cotton line and athletic pants and more.  Buying the PINK version is also an option, as you can buy 2 for 1, but then you will have more pair of "dirties" to wash and also to store in a bag at your desk, or locker or elsewhere, when you change.


Del Down The YouTube

Tv pharmaYesterday, I received an email from YouTube that a video I had posted ages ago had been removed for "medical misinformation."  The Video was Del Bigtree's Heroes video from The Highwire. Medical Misinformation is the PR flak buzzcode that was distributed across social media platforms, broadcasters and newspapers.  Call anything "unapproved" "misinformation. Heck, even old Howard Stern used it on his Sirius XM screen description a few weeks ago. That's when the light dawned on me - "this is a campaign word." Howard would be more likely to call it nonsense, not misinformation.  You want to talk about misinformation, YouTube? How about taking down every Botox'ed, false eyelash, hair, tattooed eyebrow, Spanx-shrunk, implanted celebrity's YouTube video for physical misinformation?  Here's what the YouTube email said:

Part 3: A Few Nuggets from the New Best-selling Book by Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

By Dr. William H. Gaunt (NMD)

A small fraction of the information in the third hundred pages is covered here. Readers are encouraged to read before and after the selected quotes to put things in context. References are available at the end of each chapter for additional information. My comments will appear in parentheses.

Review of Part 2

  • Fauci’s NIAID ignores chronic allergic and autoimmune diseases which have greatly increased on his watch. (Vaccine ingredients cause many of these allergic and autoimmune diseases.)
  • Fauci’s main focus is developing and promoting very profitable drugs. He is Big Pharma’s BFF.
  • Incontrovertible evidence shows that vaccines were not responsible for the huge drop in mortality from infectious diseases.
  • Improvements in nutrition and sanitation caused infectious disease mortality rates to fall to near zero BEFORE most vaccines were introduced.
  • AZT is horrendously toxic, very expensive, and ineffective against AIDS.
  • Studies of inexpensive and highly effective medicines for AIDS and COVID-19 have been designed to fail. The results of these fraudulent studies are then used as justification for suppressing their use and making them unavailable to doctors and the public. What is a good word for deliberately denying life-saving medicines to sick people? Hint: It starts with an “m”.

The HIV/AIDS Hypothesis Is Not Scientifically Valid

There is a multi-billion-dollar industry built on this hypothesis and those who profit from it are not about to admit that it is flawed.  On page 209, a letter written by top international scientists is shown: “It is widely believed by the general public that a retrovirus called HIV causes a group of diseases called AIDS. Many biomedical scientists now question this hypothesis. We propose a thorough reappraisal of the existing evidence for and against this hypothesis, to be conducted by a suitable group. We further propose that the critical epidemiological studies be devised and undertaken” … “But in an early display of Dr. Fauci’s and Big Pharma’s combined power to control the medical journals, Nature declined to publish the letter. Nor would New England Journal of Medicine, JAMA, or The Lancet. These journals rely on the pharmaceutical industry for upward of 90 percent of their revenues and seldom publish studies that threaten the Pharma paradigm. As Lancet editor Richard Horton has observed, “The journals have developed into information laundering operations for the pharmaceutical industry.” On page 235, Dr. Luc Montagnier, the French scientist who won a Nobel prize for isolating HIV is quoted: “The HIV virus is harmless and passive, a benign virus.”  (Profits are more important than people or scientific accuracy.)

Pfizer Delays Covid Vaccine Bid for Babies and Toddlers

Breaking newsNote: Pfizer postpones FDA request for Covid vaccine for kids under 5  I was reading the comments on the New York Times Facebook page and was frankly appalled by the comment you see in the photo.  The post is from a wide open public site, so I have no qualms sharing it.  A1B0D099-3D10-4F74-8289-A9D56841D2EBA mother is supposed to protect her children, not proclaim in public that she fears they will kill her.  This is the extent of the fear driven into many peoples' brains during the Covid lockdown and media blitz.  I looked her up - she's a minister (mail order?) and wrote about safe sleeping habit for babies. Send her healing thoughts - to ease her worry.

And why the delay, Pfizer? Feels a bit like Buffalo Bill turning down a nice chubby gal because she has a touch of eczema and there's another chubbier gal walking up the street eager to lend a hand in getting that sofa into the white van..

Just imagine all the brides now getting ready to "fire" their ring bearers and flower girls - because they won't be vaccinated. 

By Berkeley Lovelace Jr.

Pfizer-BioNTech is postponing its rolling application to the Food and Drug Administration to expand the use of its two-dose Covid-19 vaccine for children ages 6 months to 4 years.

The move means that vaccines for this age group will not be available in the coming weeks, a setback for parents eager to vaccinate their young children.

Pfizer said on Friday that it will wait for its data on a three-dose series of the vaccine, because it believes three doses "may provide a higher level of protection in this age group." Data on the third dose is expected in early April, the company said. Read more at NBC News Pfizer postpones FDA request for Covid vaccine for kids under 5

Autism Rorschach Test

5B237647-FE68-4888-8DDA-76F7094DA236What do you see? 

I'll tell you on the other side of the jump.

After reading Michelle Guppy's post about her son Brandon on her blog Life With Autism In Pictures, I realized that so many of us live some or maybe much of the time in an alternate universe, thanks to autism. We do things day in and day out that would surprise and maybe even shock friends, family, teachers, strangers. We do things that most parents stop doing as their  kids grow up. We do things that most grandparents are glad they don't have to do every day, because they are too old. We do them for the love and care of our kids - from tots to teens to adults.

I'll give you an example. I know someone who put plexiglass on the walls in her son's bedroom so he would not destroy the drywall.   Another example, I know many families who scour yard sales, eBay and marketplace for OLD toys and videotapes that their kids still adore.  See where I'm going? Share some of the tricks, tips, job or just plain unusual things YOU do for your children.

Rules for Tots For Politicians Not

28F2E0C5-3F43-4EDF-A425-1009BC4E7C7A"We're all in our places, with bright shiny faces." 

Well, one of them is. The kids in the Georgia classroom are masked, while visiting Georgia Gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams is not. For goodness sake, at least pretend that the rules apply to all.

In Connecticut, our Governor announced the end to mask mandates in school on February 28. Sort of. Individual districts can decide for themselves whether to unmask or not. Lamont to End Statewide School Mask Mandate on Feb. 28
And in even better news, the Bridgeport, Connecticut diocese is making masks optional in Catholic Schools as of Valentine's Day - won't it be wonderful to see all of the kids beautiful smiles!

Regarding Ms. Abrams,  CBS News reports that her campaign is upset that many have called her out on the absurdity of a classroom full of kids who couldn't take off their masks for a photo op, while she was able to beam kindly from her criss cross applesauce position on the floor. ...Stacey Abrams' campaign is assailing her critics after she posed for photos mask-less and surrounded by masked children during a visit to a Georgia school. The photos, which drew heavy criticism from conservatives, have since been deleted. Source:

Who was protecting whom?

Experienced Complications. Told No One. Died.

C72B9035-763D-4BB2-8E4E-8C1EF5DF5F3CAfter his first dose, George Jr. experienced complications, which he chose to keep to himself. According to his parents, blood was in his urine after the first shot. He then received his second dose in mid-September, where he experienced flu-like symptoms that did not resolve.

Flashback. PTSD. Our condolences to George’s family. This is likely as painful as a suicide, because of the guilt and regret involved. He didn't tell anyone he was having an adverse reactions - probably because he knew no one would believe him, and the gaslighting would be severe.  That's the environment created by the media, by the CDC, by people on social media who DELIGHT in shaming the unvaccinated and prostrating themselves before the Covid vaccines.

We don't often talk about the emotions we've been saddled with since our own experience with vaccine injury. We're expected to just suck it up, ignore it, don't tell anyone how shattering it is to know that a birth dose of Hep B might have changed the course of your child's life.  Just like George Watts Jr. RIP young man.


“I don’t know what else to do, or where to even go from here.” COVID-19 vaccine to blame for Southern Tier man’s death: Deputy Coroner

LOCKWOOD, N.Y. (WETM) — According to the Bradford County Deputy Coroner, a rare complication to the COVID-19 vaccine turned deadly for the Watts family of Lockwood. Their son, George Watts Jr., died at just 24-years-old after receiving the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine.

George Jr. was a college student. Described as a homebody, he loved playing video games and being with his family.

“[He’s] shy at first, but once you get to know him, he’s a jokester, a quick-witted kid,” Kelly Watts, George Jr.’s mother, said. Read More

Twitter Calls Us Sensitive



Last week, I Tweeted a photo of some cuts on the top of my hand. They looked pretty nasty, and I explained that my daughter with autism had scratched me during a bout of stress that she was facing. The Tweet had a purpose - to educate - not to shock, or be gory. Twitter labeled it as "sensitive," and I guess they started looking at us, because every Tweet with a link or photo is now marked as sensitive.  Yesterday, when I ran the sad news about Tanner Welsh's passing, I specifically asked Twitter to NOT censor us. I know, naive. At any rate, I'm disappointed, not surprised, that we're being artificially labeled. I can write sensitive information. I could make Twitter and many other social media and peoples' heads explode with sensitive content. I try to be very careful to keep Age of Autism live and not get shut down. Twitter has yet to remove our ban. B30F99E4-9AC7-4448-8E25-51DE2BF525E9


UK Protects Healthcare Industry

160778C8-4371-4CE9-851D-C5029D3C1EE6Important news from across the Atlantic in the UK, this after dropping many Covid restrictions. The healthcare industry is far more than Covid, despite what we've lived with for going on 2 years. Why does the for profit USA health system persist with firings, while universal healthcare UK decides to retain the workforce needed to provide care?


U-turn on mandatory Covid vaccinations for NHS and social care workers Sajid Javid set to scrap requirements after warnings that jabs policy could lead to shortage of 80.000 workers

Mandatory Covid jabs for NHS and social care workers are set to be scrapped, The Telegraph can reveal, after warnings of crippling staff shortages if the plan went ahead.

Sajid Javid, the Health Secretary, will on Monday meet fellow ministers on the Covid-Operations Cabinet committee to rubber stamp the decision on the about-turn.

Multiple government sources said ministers are expected to end the requirement because the omicron Covid variant, now dominant in the UK, is milder than previous strains.

The move comes after warnings that almost 80,000 healthcare workers would be forced out of their jobs because they had declined to take two doses of a Covid vaccine.  Read more at U-turn on mandatory Covid vaccinations for NHS and social care workers Sajid Javid set to scrap requirements after warnings that jabs policy could lead to shortage of 80.000 workers.

Part 2: A Few Nuggets from the New Best-selling Book by Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

RFK with bookPart 2: A Few Nuggets from the New Best-selling Book by Robert F. Kennedy Jr. The Real Anthony Fauci, from Skyhorse Publishing

Part one follows at the bottom - once part three is complete, we'll rearrange a final post. 

By Dr. William H. Gaunt (NMD)

This article covers highlights from the second hundred pages of this 445-page book. Readers are encouraged to use the page references to read before and after the quotes to put things in context and to track down the references if more information is desired. My comments will appear in parentheses.

Review of Part 1

  • Regulatory agencies have been captured by the pharmaceutical industry they are supposed to regulate. The result is a relationship that greatly benefits Big Pharma and harms the public.
  • Safe, effective, and inexpensive medicines for early treatment of COVID-19 were and still are aggressively suppressed and made unavailable in the U.S. while several other countries are saving many lives using these same medicines. Why? Because these medicines (HCQ and IVM) would compete with COVID-19 vaccines and favored COVID medicines that generate big profits.
  • The deadly, expensive, and ineffective drug Remdesivir has been promoted as the favored COVID-19 treatment in hospitals.
  • VAERS is intentionally ineffective at identifying vaccine injuries and deaths. Efforts to improve VAERS have been blocked.
  • Fauci has been deeply involved in all of the above. It makes sense when we realize that his first priority is to do whatever is best for Big Pharma. More on this topic in Part 2.

Ignoring Chronic Allergic and Autoimmune Diseases

On page 122, Kennedy describes what has happened: “Dr. Fauci has done almost nothing to advance NIAID’s core obligation of researching the causes of the devastating explosions in epidemics of chronic allergic and autoimmune diseases that, under his tenure, have mushroomed to affect 54 percent of children, up from 12.8 percent when he took charge of NIAID in 1984. While ignoring the explosion of allergic conditions, Dr. Fauci has instead reshaped NIAID into the leading incubator for new pharmaceutical products, many of which, ironically, profit from the cascading chronic disease pandemic.”

Destroying American’s Health While Maximizing Big Pharma’s Profits

Kennedy describes Dr. Fauci’s main focus on page 122: “Over the last fifty years at NIH, Dr. Fauci has played a leading role in Big Pharma’s engineered demolition of American health and democracy, working hand in glove with pharmaceutical companies to overcome federal regulatory obstacles and transform the NIH and NIAID into a single-minded vehicle for development, promotion, and marketing of patented pharmaceutical products, including vaccines and vaccine-like products.”

Were Vaccines Responsible for the Drastic Decline in Infectious Disease Mortality?

The answer is no. On page 129, Kennedy provides the evidence: An exhaustive 2000 study by CDC and Johns Hopkins scientists published in Pediatrics, the official journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics, concluded, “Thus vaccination does not account for the impressive declines in infectious disease mortality seen in the first half of the [20th] century … nearly 90 percent of the decline in infectious disease mortality among U.S. children occurred before 1940, when few antibiotics or vaccines were available.”

What Did Cause the Drastic Decline in Infectious Disease Mortality?

Also, on page 129, the answer is clear: The CDC and a 1977 study by McKinlay and McKinlay found: “Both CDC and the McKinlays attributed the disappearance of infectious disease mortalities not to doctors and health officials, but to improved nutrition and sanitation—the latter credited to strict regulation of food preparation, electric refrigerators, sewage treatment, and chlorinated water. The McKinlays joined Harvard’s iconic infectious disease pioneer, Edward Kass, in warning that a self-serving medical cartel would one day try to claim credit for these public health improvements as a pretense for imposing unwarranted medical interventions (e.g., vaccines) on the American public.” (That prediction was totally accurate. Most of the public now believes that the vaccines were the saviors because that lie has been repeated ad nauseum.) “As the McKinlays and Kass had predicted, vaccinologists successfully hijacked the astonishing success story – the dramatic 74 percent decline in infectious disease mortalities of the first half of the twentieth century – and deployed it to claim for themselves and particularly for vaccines, a revered and sanctified – and scientifically undeserving  -- prestige beyond criticism, questioning, or debate.” (The winners were better nutrition – fresh fruits and vegetables available year-round – and substantial improvements in sanitation. These factors were responsible for reducing infectious disease mortality to near zero. The claim that vaccines caused this decrease is false but is widely promoted by Big Pharma.)

Is our Federal Government making Religious Exemption lists of its employees?

Mccarthy listsBy Wayne Rohde

Sarah Perry and GianCarlo Canaparo of the Heritage Foundation on Jan 12, 2022, reported our Federal Government, specifically the Biden Administration has been collecting religious exemptions filed by federal employees across at least 19 federal agencies.

The Departments of Transportation, Justice, the Treasury, and Health and Human Services just to name a few have been secretly obtaining the religious exemptions of its employees.

It appears that many agencies are not just collecting the exemptions, but also consolidating them while preserving personal information.

First noticed in October 2021, Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmidt is demanding answers from the Biden Administration in hopes that others will inquire as well.

The federal agencies announced their intentions using the Federal Register, with a very small following by the public, thus none of the announcements attracted public comment.

I personally scan the Federal Register on a weekly basis, using key word searches for petitions filed in the NVICP or proposed rule changes to the program. Anyone examining the daily amount of listings in Federal Register must be prepare to review several thousand pages. Just not going to happen.

Yet, the Missouri AG was paying attention. He even submitted his comment back in November by stating that the Department of Transportation did not wait for public comment on the matter. Instead, the DOT announcement became effective the day of it was announced.

Don't Punish Progress

Don't Punish ProgressMore than 30 years, ago, I worked for a wise woman, who taught me many skills that have been useful in my day to day life, and especially as an autism Mom.  The most important piece of advice was, "Don't punish progress."  I thought of it recently, when one of my girls began using half a roll of toilet paper a day. And plugging the toilet. This is the first time she has tried to use TP and that's a life skill, one that will ensure her safety when she is with staff. It takes a lot more steps than you'd imagine. Gross motor, fine motor, crossing midline, twisting the torso, holding, grabbing, tearing. If this were 2020, when TP was scarce, I might be less cheerful about it. But I have told myself, "Buy more TP, Don't Punish Progress!" 

So.....     Our old "nemesis" Paul Offit was quoted in The Atlantic regarding Covid boosters and I immediately said to myself,
"Don't write something snarky and mean, Kim, don't punish progress." 

Paul Offit, the director of the Vaccine Education Center at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, told me that getting boosted would not be worth the risk for the average healthy 17-year-old boy. Offit advised his own son, who is in his 20s, not to get a third dose. Even with Omicron’s ability to sidestep some of the protection vaccines provide, Offit said, he believes that his son is well protected against serious illness with two shots, so a third just isn’t necessary.  Should Teen Boys Get Boosted? The Atlantic

At AofA we don't wish ill on others, or gloat when the worst happens.  Take Covid, vaccines and death.  Just in the last couple of days I saw people on social media cheering that Sarah Palin has Covid. Happy that Aaron Rodgers lost the Green Bay playoff game because of his stance on the Covid vaccine. Even tearing into singer Meatloaf in backstabbing memorials after his death last week - with Covid but said to be unvaccinated.

I applaud Dr. Offit's desire to protect his child. I'm also glad Dr. Offit was able to join us anti-vaxxers so openly. Maybe he will respect our vaccine choice a teensy weensy bit going forward. We all want to protect our kids from injury. That's it. That's the crux of why AofA still exists. To protect our kids - to make up for what happened so many years ago to so many of our families.  And to shout forever, into the darkness, the wind, the rain, that vaccine injury is real. And we need to be able to say, "No."   This Atlantic article sure isn't perfect - but it cracks open an important door.  

We Remember

9ABC3CB3-B47C-40CF-AC70-8CD407FBD1E0Yesterday was 5 years that we lost the leader of the Rebel Alliance, Dan Olmsted. Cathy Jameson created that memorial photo on our Facebook page. I think Dan would have been aghast at the state of the world today. The origins of Covid would have piqued his journalist mind. The social rancor would have discouraged him. The sacrifice of children’s education & mental health would have appalled him. And he would have helped us all make sense of the senseless. We miss you, Dan.


Defeat The Mandates DC

Yesterday in Washington, DC. #DefeatTheMandatesDC

Were you there?  Remember folks, when the media approves of your message, you are a marcher, exercising your sacred American rights.  Even if you have a Molotov cocktail in your hand, "Hey, it's for hydration!" When the media does not approve of your message, you might be called a demonstrator, an activist, dangerous, and anti-government.  USA Today took a more neutral tone than usual which was interesting: USA Today: Defeat The Mandates Rally
