RFK Jr. on vaccines: "We need oversight, safeguards" "This is the only product that you can't sue"

Kennedy Dr PhilBy Anne Dachel

Govt "is too corrupt to trust them on these issues"

More of the remarkable and frank discussion on Kennedy’s vision of his presidency.

He dismissed that idea that he’s anti-vaccine and revealed the liability-free status of the vaccine makers who have no incentive to produce a safe product.

Part two (see part one here.)

Kennedy was asked if education is “on the brink of  catastrophic collapse”?

Kennedy:  I think it’s already collapsed.

The outcomes that you just inventoried is evidence of an utter collapse of the system. We can fix the system, but you need to be able to do something disruptive.

Kennedy was asked about taxes, and he said he wouldn’t raise taxes. He was adamant that we can’t continue spending and adding trillions more to the national debt.

Kennedy pointed out that the chronic disease epidemic is costing us $4.3 trillion

We have to end that. We have to or we’re dead. It’s 4.3. It’s five times our military budget. We’ve gone from six percent of GDP to healthcare to about 18 percent. Six percent when my uncle was President, 18 percent today, and it’s growing exponentially.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Discusses Corporate Capture with Dr. Phil

God bless americaNote: On Saturday, former President Trump survived an assassination attempt by a 20 year old male described by peers as loner who was endlessly bullied in school. For a moment, I had a flashback to Adam Lanza, who murdered 26 school kids and staff a mere 14 miles up the road from me in Sandy Hook, Connecticut. As the story unfolds, we are mindful that our language matters. All of us at Age of Autism have weathered barbs and arrows over the years, and maybe we've tossed a few ourselves. When rhetoric causes active harm, it's time to ask hard questions. And I hope our nation will. Anne Dachel transcribed an interview with Presidential Candidate Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. whom we are proud to call a friend and supporter. Few know the intimate agony of an assassination like he. Pray for his safety. For for the United States of America.

RFK Jr. reveals the "corporate capture" of our regulatory agencies, media and political parties 

THERE IS NO OVERSIGHT

After listening to the facts that Robert Kennedy, Jr. reveals about our regulators there is only one conclusion: THERE IS NO OVERSIGHT.

Our federal health agencies have been bought by the industries they’re supposed regulate.

RFK Jr. Part one


| Part 1 | Ep. 228 | Phil in the Blanks Podcast

Dr. Phil: As we enter the heart of the 2024 presidential race, RFK Jr. aims to do what no third party candidate has ever done: win the presidency.

Will we have another Kennedy in the White House, or will he tip the scales towards either former President Trump or President Biden?

This is a pivotal moment in American politics, reminiscent of those rare occasions when a third party candidate shook up the status quo. . . .

Tonight I’ll dive into where RFK Jr. stands in one of the highest stakes elections of our lifetime.  . . .

Could he be the wildcard no one saw coming?

Dr. Phil asked Kennedy why he wants to be President.

Kennedy:  . . .I saw something happening to my country that I couldn’t really imagine. I saw this huge division that’s so toxic now and so poisonous. . . .

I don’t think we’ve seen anything like this since the American Civil War, and it’s all amplified by the social media algorithms that are pushing us further and further into our positions into these kinds of tribal positions.

But the origin of it is, I believe, the capture of our political parties by corporate interests, and the corruption that’s come from that, and the political parties are fueling that fire.

I think this presidential campaign will cost about $15 billion, and that money is coming from these big corporations and this new kind of oligarchy of billionaires, and when donate the money, they expect something in return.

It’s transformed the political parties away from democracy. Their function is to advance the mercantile interests of the corporations that are funding them.

Dr. Phil: Is that true on both sides, Democrat and Republican?

Kennedy:  . . . They’re both owned by interests that are not necessarily America’s interests.

And I felt I was in a unique position to talk about this because I’ve spent my entire career, 40 years suing agencies and large polluters and the agencies that they’ve now captured.

I’ve sued almost all of them. I’ve sued EPA as much as any other attorney. I’ve sued CDC, NIH, FDA, the public health agencies, the FCC, the USDA. And when you do this litigation, yu get a PhD in corporate capture and how to unravel it.

I also had a clarity of vision about what this country is supposed to look like, and I feel I’m in a unique position to see how far it departed from those values.

Dr. Phil asked Kennedy about his chances of winning and Kennedy is confident he can. 

11:23

Kennedy: . . . There’s an entire national press out there that is very opposed to me.

I would say to people is just listen to what I’m saying rather than other people’s characterizations of me, and that’s the most I can do.

I know that what I’m doing right now is what I’m supposed to be doing. So I feel comfortable in my soul with that decision, and I’m working aw shard as I can to make sure, to save this country.

Ultimately, it’s in God’s hands.

I have to work as hard as I can, and the slings and arrows that I take from people outside need to be irrelevant to me. . . .

Dr. Phil asked Kennedy if he has a perception problem, and Kennedy agreed he does.

13:55

Kennedy: . . . Let me give you an example: the connection between atrazine, which is a chemical that is in about 63 percent of America’s water supply.

There has been an increase in gender dysphoria in this country, and we should be looking at reasons for that.

There’s been a series of studies including one by a very famous scientist called Tyler Hayes at the University of Berkley, published in the National Academy of Sciences journal, in which he took  about 100 frogs, it may have 70, and subjected them to atrazine at the levels that the EPA considered safe.

They were all male frogs, and 70 percent of those frogs became chemically castrated. Ten percent of the male frogs turned female and began producing fertile eggs.

I’ve been working on endocrine disruptors which are a class of chemicals like PCBs that I’ve been working on for 40 years that affect sexual development.

It’s not a theory. It’s not a conspiracy theory. It’s well-documented. So what I said in that case is, I don’t know if it’s affecting gender dysphoria. I don’t know if atrazine is, but isn’t it something that we ought to study? . . .

Kennedy went on to connect mass shootings in the U.S. to the new class of drugs, SSRIs and benzos that have a black box warning about suicidal and homicidal behavior.

18:35

I have a perception problem particularly in the mainstream media. . . .

Dr. Phil noted that people aren’t getting to hear what Kennedy has to say.

You need to listen to what he has to say before you make up your mind.

Kennedy:

I have a big conversion rate when people actually listen to me.  . . .

The mainstream media, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, ABC and CBS, won’t allow me on to do a live interview. Most of them won’t even allow a taped interview.

I’ve only done one live interview on CNN, but otherwise they won’t let me on to do that.

Dr. Phil asked him why that is. “What are they afraid of?”

Kennedy: I think there is a political alignment now with the media. They’re overtly either Democrat or Republican, and I think the Democratic oriented networks, they feel like I’m going to be a threat to President Biden if I’m even allowed on the air.

And there’s other more complex motives. One is they get so much of their revenue from pharmaceutical interests.

Roger Ailes, he was very supportive of me. He was the founder of Fox News, and I came to him in 2014 with a documentary that I helped create about mercury in vaccines. I showed it to him and he was completely persuaded by this documentary, but he said, I can’t let you get on to talk about it because we get 70 percent of our revenues in the evening news shows come from the pharmaceutical companies.

I think all the networks are under that kind of pressure.

The unholy alliance between the drug companies and our federal regulatory agencies

Dr. Phil: Let me ask you this about Big Pharma, and this is about vaccines.

You say that the government regulators have been bought off by Big Pharma. . . .

You said agency employees are actually getting royalties, getting payments on vaccines and drugs that they approve.

Is that true?

Kennedy: Yes, there’s a couple of things happening. With FDA, about 50 percent of FDA’s budget comes from regulated industries, so mainly the pharmaceutical industries.

You have agency capture on steroids.

The principal objective of FDA today is to serve the mercantile interest of pharmaceutical companies, and that’s why you see FDA not only approving all of these drugs that shouldn’t be approved, but they are also out to destroy things that are actually shown to be good for you, that do not make profits for the pharmaceutical companies.

Then talking about NIH

Kennedy: In 1980, we passed a law called the Bayh-Dole Act. The Bayh-Dole Act, for the first time, allowed individual scientists and NIH as the agency to collect royalties on drugs on which they had done research.

It really transformed, that law really transformed NIH.

When I was growing up, NIH was only 15 minutes from my home. . . . I wanted to be a scientist when I was a kid, so I went to NIH all the time to look at the rats and look through the microscopes etc.

It was the premier scientific agency in the world. Nobody in the world had anything like that, and they would look to America for science, particularly for medical research, biomedical research. 

After the Bayh-Dole Act, NIH began slowly migrating from a scientific research agency to a drug development incubator.

In 2016 . . . there were about 220 new drugs approved by FDA, and 100 percent of them came out of NIH.

For example, the Moderna vaccine. NIH owns half of that vaccine, 50 percent. So the billions of dollars that the vaccine makes, half of that goes to NIH, the agency, but there’s also individuals, at least four, maybe six, who work for NIH who are the high level deputies under Anthony Fauci, who get to collect $150,000 a year forever, not just for their lives, but their children, as long as that mRNA technology is on the market, they’re going to be making money from it. That is a conflict.

Dr. Phil responded by asking Kennedy if NIH was getting a “kickback, a bribe.”

Is this not a clear conflict of interest? . . .

Why are you the only one talking about this?

Kennedy: If you talk about this kind of thing, you get censored on YouTube. You will not be allowed on the mainstream media to talk about these issues.

It used to be that you could, but nowadays, you cannot.

Dr. Phil: If there’s some rational reason for it, why would they try to censor and hide it?

Kennedy: I think it was an idealistic reason. It was 1980, right? It was the tie in the Reagan Revolution. If you put privatized incentives into the government agencies, they would function better and more efficiently.

Dr. Phil asked about alternative treatments.

Kennedy: The whole approval of the Moderna vaccine and the Pfizer vaccines during COVID required them to suppress any other therapeutic drugs that may have been effective against COVID, and a lot believe, including myself, that there were therapeutics that were very, very effective against COVID, like Ivermectin, like hydroxychloroquine. In fact there were many, many others.

They were deliberately suppressed because the government wanted to issue these emergency use authorizations, and it would have been illegal if they acknowledged that there was an existing drug that was approved for any purpose that was effective against COVID.

Dr. Phil called this another conflict of interest.

Kennedy: We had 16 percent of the COVID deaths in the United States, and we only have 4.2 percent of the world’s population.

We literally did worse than any country in the world, at least by that data point. 

And I think one of the reasons was the systematic suppression of things that could have helped patients in hospitals all over the country. . . .

Everybody was directed down one path, and it was the path that was being dictated from above.

Dr. Phil summarized the mismanagement of the COVID pandemic and what was forced on the American people. He questioned the motives of the people in charge.

He asked Kennedy about the COVID vaccine.

Kennedy: Well, it was the deadliest in terms of how many deaths were reported to the VAERS database.

Now you don’t know causation. I took the vaccine, and the next day I had a heart attack or a stroke or myocarditis, you can’t say for sure that that injury was attributable to that correlation   . . . but when you see this huge uptick within, I think, the first year of the release of the COVID vaccine, there were more reports to COVID sic of deaths and injuries than all vaccines put together for the previous almost 36 years.

In that sense, yes, it was the deadliest vaccine ever.

Part of that is that it was mandated for so many people.

“Corporate capture”

Dr. Phil asked Kennedy how he would handle the corporate capture of our federal agencies.

Kennedy: I think each agency, you have to address because they all have unique structures.

Part of the problem is policy and structure and part of it is personnel.

If there’re perverse incentive like at FDA where 50 percent of the budget comes from pharma or NIH where regulators are getting paid to make sure drugs get on the market.

Congress actually had hearings on it, and Anthony Fauci testified at those hearings because he was making money on some of these drugs that he had developed.

So you have a scientist who is supposed to be looking for problems in that drug, that’s what his job is as a regulator. Find the problems to make sure you’re protecting the public.

But if he’s paying for his mortgage, and he’s paying for his children’s education, he’s paying for his boat, he’s paying for his alimony from that $150,000 a year, you could expect and you could predict that he’s going to be less vigilant about finding problems.

That’s what we call a perverse incentive

The people who tend to get promoted are people who are willing to carry water for the industry.

The regulators become sock puppets of the industry, and when people get to the end of their careers for a government agency, they go to work for the industry they regulated.

So right before they leave they tend to do a lot of favors for those industries, and they’re senior management, and that example, that bad example tends to percolate downward throughout their whole division. . . .

These are all swamp creatures, and it amplifies that corporate capture that we see. . . .

I understand the perverse incentives that need to be changed right away in order to change agency culture and get them doing what they’re supposed to be doing which is serving the public interest and protecting public health.

We’re now the unhealthiest country in the world.

We have the highest chromic disease burden in the world.

When my uncle was President, six percent of Americans had chronic disease. Today almost 60 percent do, and nobody’s doing anything about this.

Nobody’s talking about the autism rates in my generation, depending on which study, one in 2,500 or one in 10,000,

In my kids’ generation is one every 34 kids, one in every 22 boys.

So Congress said to EPA, tell us what year the autism epidemic began?

EPA came back and said it’s a red line, 1989, so something happened in 1989.

So something happened in 1989. We know this epidemic is not happening because of genes. Genes don’t cause epidemics, as you know. You need an environmental toxin.

So why aren’t we looking for what toxin it was that hit every demographic? It became ubiquitous in `1989, and those are the studies that I’m going to get them to do as President.

Finally Dr. Phil asked Kennedy about election integrity.

Kennedy said we could fix the problem. Republicans and Democrats need to work together to solve this. Kennedy wants a free government issued photo ID for voting and paper ballots along with a low threshold for recounts.

So why isn’t “corporate capture” the biggest issue in our presidential race? How much worse does the corruption at the highest levels of government have to get before we see something change? The regulators and the media are in the pay of industry, and their job is to lie to us.

Health care has become sick care in this country and many people want it to continue. There is so much money to be made.

San Diego: Autism Surf Camp Doubles in Size

Surf with sharksBy Anne Dachel

San Diego: Autism Surf Camp doubles in size

ONE IN 22 ISN'T ALL THAT UNIQUE, IN FACT IT'S EXPECTED

A story from KPBS in San Diego caught my attention for two reasons.

First of all, it was about efforts to provide something significant in the lives of autistic young people.

July 8, 2024, KPBS: Why a San Diego surf camp for people with autism doubled in size

On a Monday morning, long lines of surfboards stretched down La Jolla Shores. On them, children practiced — paddle, paddle, paddle! — scooping at the sand, pressing themselves into "seal position," and popping into a crouch.

Outside one blue tent, the boards were taken by a dozen children and young adults somewhere on the wide spectrum of autism, each with their own coach. It was day one of a four-day surf camp. . . .

Parents started this surf camp 22 years ago.

It’s run by the Autism Society of San Diego and supported by state and county funds.

Adults running the program genuinely want these children to succeed, and I can only imagine how grateful parents are for this opportunity.

The other thing that stood out to me was this information:

The demand reflects San Diego’s unique population.

Nationally, 1 in 36 children are diagnosed with autism. Korogi said in San Diego, it’s 1 in 22.

“Almost every single classroom has at least one individual with autism,” she said.

San Diego offers better services for people with autism than many places in the country, Korogi said. Military families request to be stationed here to access those services, driving up the numbers.

Protocol 7: When The Truth Can Only Be Explained By Fiction

Protocol 7 screeningsDear Readers, did you know that Andy Wakefield has produced a full length feature film about a vaccine whistleblower? It's called Protocol 7. As the saying goes, "Truth is stranger than fiction." And after years of documentaries covering a wide range of autism and vaccine topics, we now have a fictional tale plucked from what SHOULD have been the headlines, but was buried.  Our Anne Dachel interviewed Andy in May (see our post including the video interview below.)  You can host a screening in your local theatre.  And the site runs a list of all of the showings.

BEST OF ALL - the Protocol 7 website has an "at a glance" Know The Risks page that you can forward to friends and family with a succinct, graphic synopsis of the pediatric vaccination schedule. As a rule, we are an - ahem - overly wordy group. So the graphic presentation is fabulous. Share!

Protocol 7 Movie Bring Things That Go MUMPS In The Night To The Theatre

Protocol 7 poster"Merck has not essentially denied committing (mumps vaccine) fraud."

So excited to share a new FEATURE length movie from Andy Wakefield. Protocol 7 is a plucked from real life thriller about a whistleblower who exposes problems with the mumps component of the Merck MMR vaccine. The truth is still unfolding in a Pennsylvania court.

Vaccine injury and pharma malfeasance are no longer rated "X" as a topic for public interest. Audiences are aware of the grip pharma has on our government, public health and medical community, because of the Covid lockdown and vaccine mandates that touched everyone.  Moviegoers are READY for Protocol 7. Click HOST A PROTOCOL 7 SCREENING to learn how you can get involved and help promote the movie too. Anne Dachel sat down with the director, one Andrew J. Wakefield, to talk about this film, so many years in the making.

By Anne Dachel

I recently had the opportunity to interview Dr. Andrew Wakefield about his latest project, the full length movie, Protocol 7.

Protocol 7 reveals more of the nefarious history of the vaccine industry in America, this time involving the mumps component in Merck’s MMR vaccine.

Here is how Dr. Wakefield explained it.

https://rumble.com/v4w5j4h-wakefield-1.html 

The movie itself, Protocol 7, this is my first venture into a full length narrative feature film, unlike documentaries in the past. So it’s a whistleblower story in the genre Erin Brockovich or the Insider.

It’s very exciting. People love an insider story.

It tells the story based on truths of a whistleblower, two whistleblowers in a vaccine lab with reports that they were asked to participate in a fraud, what they considered to be a fraud.

It centered around the efficacy, the protective ability of the mumps vaccine which has been failing for many years. They knew this as early as the late 90s. They still persisted. They had an option either to scrap it, do a recall and make a safer vaccine, BUT potentially lose the American market, lose the market worldwide OR to fake the data. That’s what the whistleblowers reported to me.

So it’s been there for a long time. The story’s been there for a long time. It’s in federal court in Pennsylvania at the moment on appeal.

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. Reminds Listeners About the CDC Simpsonwood Vaccine Manipulation

SimpsonwoodThank you to Anne Dachel for her transcription genius. Watch the interview, if only to see for yourself why neither Trump nor Biden wanted Kennedy in the debate. His ability to remember, distill and share facts is exceptional.

By Anne Dachel

Bobby Kennedy
is an incredible speaker. Without notes he can cite statistics that show his vast command of information on so many issues vital to Americans.

This was never more evident than during a recent talk with former Navy SEAL and CIA contractor, Shawn Ryan on his podcast.

It was over two and a half hours long, and it was fascinating in its entirety. What really stood out to me was 10 minutes of the interview at 1 hour, 52 minutes.

(Transcribed below)

Here Kennedy talked about SIMPSONWOOD, which was a clandestine meeting of health officials, scientists and vaccine makers held at a secluded conference center in Norcross, GA in June 2000, 20 miles from CDC headquarters in Atlanta.

During this two day meeting, attendees talked about the evidence of a clear link between the vaccines kids were getting and the explosion in neurological disorders, most notably autism.

On the first day they talked about the evidence they were seeing, and the second was all about how to cover it up.

We Don't Solve Problems, We Create Markets

Keep-calm-and-drink-kool-aid-15Note: Anne Dachel has been writing about the meteoric rise of special education for almost 18 years. Why is it that the world can "unite" (in some fashion) behind say, climate change or a pandemic, and radically alter behavior? And yet, children suffering and unable to learn goes unnoticed? Money. Our big "problems" are really big markets where billions are at stake.  Color us jaded.  Green, like money.

By Anne Dachel

The BBC is one of the most well-known news outlets in the world, perhaps the most esteemed one out there. Their stories are cited everywhere by other print and broadcasts news sources.

The BBC is supposed to be journalism at its best, giving us thoroughly investigated news reports.

The truth is, the BBC is an example of the epic failure of the media today when it comes to the decline of children in the 21st century. After two decades of following autism coverage from sources all over the world, I can say that the BBC, more than any other news outlet, reports on the massive numbers of special needs children. They do it constantly!

Actually, when it comes to the enormous and ever-increasing costs of special education and the increasing demand because of more and more disabled children flooding British schools, the BBC is more like a foreign visitor who just landed in the country.

It isn’t that the BBC doesn’t report on the soaring costs and numbers, and the fact that students have “more complex needs,” it’s just that they don’t see any real crisis.

A story one day has no relationship to the next story they publish.

The BBC does this kind of reporting on almost a daily basis, so you’d think someone there would ask the million dollar question: WHY ARE THERE ALWAYS MORE DISABLED STUDENTS?

Welcome To The Land of the Lost

ChakaWill! LOOK OUT!!! Your 1970s Saturday morning friend just might be.... YOUR CHILD! Autism and Neanderthal genes. I think I prefer being a refrigerator Mom to a cave woman.

By Anne Dachel

Autism is now one of the most common developmental disorders affecting children worldwide, with ever-increasing rates no health official can reasonably explain, and it’s also the subject of endless research that leads nowhere.

Over the past 20 years there have been lots of worthless studies showing “associations” between autism and old moms, fat moms, drinking moms, Wilma Flintstonesmoking moms, moms who marry old dads, moms who don’t get the right vitamins, moms who have babies too close together, and moms who live too close to freeways. There are more, but this is a good sample.

The message: Autism is a puzzle that we just have to keep investigating.

I like to call all this “autism busywork.” Now the latest “groundbreaking study” is from Loyola University in New Orleans.

We’re told the researchers have found “a primary cause of autism,” and it’s GENETIC. This time it’s a genetic variant linked to our Neanderthal ancestors.

June 7, 2024, Groundbreaking Study Unveils Role of Neanderthal Genes in Autism

Loyola University New Orleans and Clemson University researchers uncover a primary cause of autism

A landmark study recently published in the prestigious science journal Nature: Molecular Psychiatry has unveiled a new discovery in autism research. The research is the first to show that certain genetic traits inherited from Neanderthals play a significant role in autism. Dr. Emily Casanova, assistant professor of neuroscience at Loyola University New Orleans, co-authored this pioneering work alongside her esteemed colleagues at Clemson University.

Ordering More Ambulances

Abadnonned schoolBy Anne Dachel

We are clearly at a point in the autism epidemic where no one questions anything.

No longer do the numbers bother anyone. The current average rate of one in 36 U.S. children will, no  doubt, be increased to one in 29 (the rate now in British Columbia), or one in 25 (the rate in Australia), or one in 23 (the rate in Scotland), or one in 22 (the rate in California), or one in 21 (the rate in Ireland), or maybe one in 20 (the rate in Northern Ireland). It doesn’t matter because health officials never acknowledge that there’s ever been a real increase in autism.

And we aren’t really talking about the cause of all this autism anymore. After 25 years of always increasing statistics, everyone seems happy to leave things be. We’ve long been told that no one really knows why a child has autism. It’s probably genetic with maybe bad choices by parents. We’ve had two decades of studies showing a connection to fat moms, moms on antidepressants, drinking moms, old moms, moms who marry old dads, moms who don’t get the right vitamins, moms who have babies too close together, and moms who live too close to freeways.

It’s all just part of the puzzle that is autism.

This serious developmental disorder with no known cause, prevention or cure is here to stay. If it’s your child, learn the signs and get that all important early intervention. There’s nothing else you can do.

Nothing demonstrates where we’re at better than two recent stories on Fox 2 in St. Louis.

I was struck by the fact that Fox 2 put the stories out one day apart.

The coverage was about autism therapy providers offering Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) services.

ADHD Diagnoses Rising

ADHD-ritalin-children-diagnosedBy Anne Dachel - visit Anne's Substack here.

The big news about kids and developmental health is more ADHD, lots more. Of course no one is in a panic, and, you guessed it, it’s due to GREATER AWARENESS, the effects of COVID, modern living, etc.

The increase, unlike autism, is described as real. More kids really do have ADHD, but like autism, this is acceptable.

Officials describe the rise in ADHD as an “ongoing and expanding public health concern,” which sounds similar to their reference to autism as “a serious public health concern” many times in the past. The message is, of course, nothing here is a crisis.

May 24th, Scripps News: CDC reports sharp rise in ADHD diagnoses among children during the pandemic; 1 in 9 children ages 3-17 were diagnosed with ADHD as of 2022, study finds.

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder cases have risen considerably in the U.S., according to a new study by researchers with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention..

The study released on Wednesday said 1 in 9 children ages 3-17 had been diagnosed with the disorder at some point in their life as of 2022.

Roughly 5.4 million kids actively had ADHD in 2016, but just six years later, the number had increased to over 6.5 million. The jump in diagnoses may be good as kids are getting screened more.

COVIDDenial

The study notes, however, that the pandemic might have had a role in the higher number of children diagnosed with ADHD.

"Children experiencing symptoms of stress, depression, and anxiety during the pandemic may also exhibit symptoms of inattention and impulsivity, potentially leading to a diagnosis of ADHD when other diagnoses may be more appropriate," the study says.

Andy wakefield supportAnne Dachel interviewed Dr. Andy Wakefield about his new feature film Protocol 7 - a story of a vaccine whistleblower starring Rachel Whittle, Matthew Marsden and Eric Roberts (I haven't looked yet, but I'm guessing he plays "the bad guy!")  You can learn more and even sign up to host a screening here. We'll be sharing Anne's interview in the coming days. 

But who could talk to Dr. Wakefield and not ask him about the huge increase Protocol 7 posterin autism and its impact on families? We have an AofA category with posts we've written about Dr. Wakefield's journey from boy wonder British pediatric gastroenterologist to worldwide whipping boy for the protection of vaccine programs, governments and the pharmaceutical industry. Few men could have withstood the lashing in the court of public opinion and the British GMC (see photo) and yet stood by our children. We will always be grateful of his support and in awe of his continued work.  Note, the videos are on Rumble. I'm hoping they embed properly. Here are the two links with this interview, in case.

Dr. Wakefield on the ever-increasing rates of autism around the world

Click HERE if the Rumble video does not embed.

During our talk, I asked Dr. Wakefield about the current situation with autism and the universal acceptance of these disabled children as simply part of human neurodiversity. Those in charge preach that autism has always existed, with no recognition that the stunning rates are real increases. 

Am I surprised that the rates of autism that are now being reported, for example, Scotland, Northern Ireland, England and indeed in the U.S.?

The answer is, sadly, no. 

I mean the graph, if one looks at the trend in autism numbers, incidence and prevalence; you see that they’re a dramatic and sustained increase. 

It’s been predicted to reach one in two by 2032. Whether that holds up or not, I don’t know. Whatever, there is a huge epidemic of these neurodevelopmental disorders. 

The notion that this is due to better diagnosis is utter nonsense. 

This has been shown in the New Jersey numbers. We have the same people using the same diagnostic criteria over time. So using the same diagnostic instrument showing that there is a dramatic increase and saying this is nothing to do with better diagnosis.

That may account for a tiny percentage of it, but we’re having to meet the market demand, the sheer volume of these children coming through.  

So originally, it was a reasonable hypothesis to say among the things that may account for this rise is better diagnosis. But it’s a testable hypothesis. It’s been tested, and it’s been found wanting. It does not explain what’s going on. 

When I was first confronted with autism at the Royal Free Hospital in 1995, I didn’t even know what autism was. We weren’t taught about it as medical students because it was so rare. 

Now the other thing, and this is something that’s rarely pointed out, is that medicine now does not encourage in the same way that medicine did historically, the diagnostic skills that are necessary to be a doctor.  

We’ve got tests, we’ve got scans, blood tests, this, that and the other. 

Back in the day, the best diagnostician, those who were the best observers and describers of human disease, they weren’t of this century, they weren’t even of the last century. They were of the century before. 

They were people like Jean-Martin Charcot from the Salpêtrièrein, Paris.

People like Babinski who worked with him.  

People like Freud who attended his lectures. 

People like Gilles de la Tourette who described Tourette syndrome. 

These physicians were outstanding at eliciting physical signs and symptoms, describing human disease, many of them they couldn’t do anything about.

They didn’t have antibiotics or other things at the time, but they were outstanding at describing diseases. 

So if autism, if something as fascinating, dare I say it and idiosyncratic as autism had existed, it would have been described by these people.  

It did not exist in anything like, anything like the numbers it does now.

If they had seen a case, they would have jumped, and they would have described it meticulously. 

It didn’t happen. Why? Because it wasn’t there.

These are new. These are new kids on the block, terrifying in their frequency and their severity and the consequences for society as a whole, let alone the poor families who have to deal with it.  

Dr. Wakefield had this to say about the future.



RUMBLE VIDEO link in case embed fails

What does the future hold in terms of developmental disorders, autism?

It’s fairly dark at the moment, isn’t it?

It’s going to go on increasing until people more broadly in government, in the regulatory authorities, academia acknowledge that vaccines are a major part, a major part of causing this problem.

They cannot bring themselves to terms with that possibility at the moment. They can’t do it. It’s beyond their wildest imagination to admit that there is something that they believed in so firmly, so wholeheartedly for so long, that actually, they’re wrong.

Some people have invested their entire careers in being wrong. They just have yet to realize it. 

And so we have a while to go. 

However, there are two things in my experience, my recent experience as well, that have changed the dynamic, changed the perception of the public, and this is where, I think, the biggest change will come, is coming. 

That is film. Film has had a profound effect.

Films like VAXXED and Plandemic and others have really woken a lot of people up, and the other is COVID itself.

USA TODAY says once again: STUDIES SHOW NO LINK

Theres-nothing-to-see-here-move-along-com-16250233By Anne Dachel

It's always better diagnosing/greater awareness when it comes to autism

On May 17th USA Today published the story, No link between National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act, rise in autism rates | Fact check

It was written by Chris Mueller who was cited as their “Fact Check Reporter.”  

The claim: National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act linked to increase in autism rates

A May 11 Instagram post shows a graph that depicts a decades-long rise in the rate of autism. The graph's title claims the rate of the condition has increased "277–fold" since 1970.

The graph includes a red arrow labeled "1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act," which points to an area on the graph that precedes a sharp rise.

"When something increases over 200-fold, it is not accidental," reads the post. "Such significant changes in a short span are intentional."

Mueller’s strategy here was to downplay autism and any increase in the disorder.

AUTISM CENSORSHIP: What You're Not Allowed to Ask

Abadnonned schoolBy Anne Dachel

A chilling story came out of Ireland on May 10th.  It was all about the unspeakable aspect of autism:

WHY DOES AUTISM KEEP INCREASING?

This legitimate question was raised by Mattie McGrath, a member of the Irish parliament, the Dail, and the questioner immediately came under fire.

May 10, 2024, The Journal:  Senator tells TD: "You did not see children with difference in school because they were not allowed to attend"

During a debate on progressing special education provision in the Dáil yesterday, McGrath said there “must be a need for understanding the explosion of autism” and questioned why the number of diagnoses had increased. 

McGrath said that his brother had worked in Africa as a paediatrician in the 1990s and when he returned to Ireland, it was the first time McGrath had heard the words autism, dyspraxia and dyslexia. 

He said his brother was “very concerned” that “something was causing” autism “Because when I was going to school … we did not see these issues. There was some issues, but nothing like the amount there are now,” McGrath said. 

Because of these comments, McGrath was attacked.

Will RFK, Jr. Drain The Swamp?

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

###

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

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

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

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

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

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

From The Military Industrial Complex & Big Pharma

Joe Polish:

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

Robert Kennedy, Jr.:

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

The Financial Incentives to Vaccinate Explained

Dr paul thomas booksThank you to our Anne Dachel for transcribing Polly Tommey's interview with Dr. Paul Thomas. She also ran this on her new Substack. Subscribe to Anne’s Substack.

From CHD-TV: "Pediatricians have more than a basic monetary incentive to vaccinate their patients — they are also motivated by the knowledge that they could lose their job if they don’t. In this special CHD.TV interview with Dr. Paul Thomas, viewers hear important insights on corruption in medicine, pandemic protocols, vaccine science, sudden deaths, natural immunity and more."

###

In this 26 minute interview, Dr. Thomas explains the truth about vaccines as the moneymaking focus of pediatric medicine.  Watch at CHD-TV.

 Paul Thomas, MD explains the financial incentives for doctors to vaccinate.

https://live.childrenshealthdefense.org/chd-tv/events/the-peoples-study/we-get-paid-to-vaccinate-your-children/?utm_id=20240424

. . . At one point . . .we had. . .  15,000 active patients and 33 staff. Overhead, we were running through about $3 million in gross billings. That’s a big operation with a lot of overhead.

What wasn’t known to me actually until I really looked into it is that the income from vaccines was substantial. I got clued into it because I started getting more and more patients who didn’t want to vaccinate.

The only thing that was sacred in my practice was honoring informed consent. You couldn’t work for Integrative Pediatrics, which was my practice, unless you were willing to honor parents’ desires, whatever they were.

If they wanted to follow the CDC schedule, if they wanted to do some vaccines, if they wanted to do no vaccines, it was their choice.

Well, as other practices started kicking people out of their practices if they weren’t following the CDC schedule, I was getting more and more families who didn’t want to do any vaccines, which was fine with me.

I’d been doing enough research to understand there was definitely some benefits to not vaccinating—not financially though.

We took an entire month of every single billing sheet, and on every visit, on the back of that, our providers would mark off what vaccines we recommend according to the CDC schedule.

Disabled Students In Australia

Abadnonned schoolWe're at the end of autism whatever you want month. Perhaps in May we can extoll cancer for its weight loss properties, unless it would tick of Ozempic. This week, we'll be taking a look at Donald Trump's latest scattershot attack on the very topic that launched Age of Autism. Not from a political POV. That’s outside our pay grade. 

By Anne Dachel

The beginning of the end for Australia. This simply can’t continue.

Two articles, purporting to be the result of investigative journalism, were published by the Guardian on April 28th. They were about the impact disabled students are having on schools in Australia.

Reporter Sarah Martin wrote about the ongoing crisis in special  education in Australia, but something critical was missing  in both stories as you will see.

Things are pretty dire

Her main piece had the dramatic headline:

How the rise of autism and ADHD fractured Australia’s schools

EXCERPTS:

25 percent of students have special needs

Almost a million Australian schoolchildren now have a disability – that’s one in four enrolments. Parents, teachers and advocates say education is at crisis point

It was a rather lengthy article, all about how schools in Australia continue to fail special needs children, most notably, those with autism and ADHD.

One in 25 students have autism

The Autism Detective An Interview with Anne Dachel

3384180E-A5BE-4288-A98A-AEB40471DA37
Patricia Lemer interviewed Anne Dachel for her The Autism Detective program. You can find it on Spotify at The Autism Detective hosted by Patricia  Lemer 

Patricia is the author of Outsmarting Autism: Build Healthy Foundations for Communication, Socialization, and Behavior at All Ages. She is a licensed Professional Counselor, with over 50 years experience, and the author of the best seller, Outsmarting Autism, interviews Moms, Dads, therapists, educators, and other professionals. They share clues they follow to help individuals of all ages, on the autism spectrum become the best version of themselves. Learn how biomedical, sensory, motor, visual, auditory, perceptual, homeopathic, detoxification, language, behavioral, social-emotional, energy, vagus nerve, and other therapies can heal our kids.

Patricia introduced the show and asked me about my experience being an autism advocate. She asked me about my son, John, who has high functioning autism.

AnneWhen he was diagnosed, I was told this was a very rare condition. In my little town of 14,000, there probably wasn’t another child with autism. Now every school in this city has autistic kids.

Patricia asked about Age of Autism.

It has been a leading advocate for autism, to inform parents, and to get recognition about what’s really happening. We live in a world that’s trying to normalize this condition, to pretend that this is just part of neurodiversity.

All we need is inclusion. If we just fund enough services, everything will be fine. Numbers don’t matter.

The message is clear: autism is a natural part of childhood. We need acceptance; we need to become autism friendly. 

All these cities are becoming Certified Autism Centers.

It’s just bizarre. No one is worried about autism. We don’t care where it’s coming from.

We ignore things like regressive autism, and one out of every three children with autism actually regresses. They lose learned skills at some point and become autistic. No one cares why that’s happening.

There’s so much that’s just ignored by everyone.

Patricia said that I refer to this as the “autism cover-up.”

Anne: We’ve had IDEA, Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, for almost 50 years. If we’ve had to educate disabled children, even if we didn’t know it was autism, we would be ready to accommodate these kids.

Everywhere, especially in the U.K., they’re going broke having to educate these children who really never were here before.

With Gifts Like These....

Bad gift
Yes. We went there. Enough with the nonsense.

We DO celebrate our loved ones with autism. We honor them EVERY DAY by taking care of them, advocating for them, fighting tooth and nail for them.   We do NOT CELEBRATE their autism.  That's just nonsense. Plain and simple.

By Anne Dachel

There has been a flurry of news reports over the past several weeks telling us about autism awareness and autism acceptance and the reasons we should be celebrating all the people with autism today.

For those of us who’ve been involved with autism advocacy over the last 20 years, it all seems like nonsense. Somehow we’re supposed to pretend that having one in 36 children with autism is nothing new.

Actually, a whole month dedicated to normalizing a serious neurological disorder affecting evermore children may have a truly sinister purpose.

What if all this is nothing but a cover-up by those responsible for worldwide damage as a result of an ever-growing, unchecked, unsafe vaccine schedule?

There are many who believe it is.

A brilliant way to avoid culpability and continue the lucrative, liability-free scheme would be to rebrand the damage as something totally divorced from vaccine injury.

It is actually happening all around us if we care to look closely, and it is ingenious.

We live in a world where a neurological disorder affecting greater and greater numbers of children is now reduced to NEURODIVERISTY.  We’re told this condition (not a disability) has always been part of human existence; it just took until the 21st century for experts to understand what it is.

Problem solved

This pretense of no real increase, just better diagnosing, has worked perfectly. No one challenges it. Faithful minions in the media do as they’re told and are now flooding the news with heartwarming stories about autism awareness/acceptance.

We’ve come so far

Doctors and health officials are great promoters of this mindset. They’re not worried about autism. In fact, the medical community has taken credit for the exponential increase in diagnoses due to better diagnosing on their part.

Abracadabra Autism is a Condition!

Magician evilDr. Jesudoss was introduced. He is an expert and the father of two nonverbal teenage sons with autism. He was asked what autism is, and he assured us that autistic people are just like the rest of us. He said that the CDC has changed autism from a disorder to a condition.

By Anne Dachel

Two weeks into April, we’re now used to hearing about autism awareness and acceptance. We’re told we should celebrate autism and neurodiversity and promote inclusion.

It’s tiresome and totally disconnected from the reality of autism all around us.

I found an interview that was the ultimate in covering up what autism is doing to the human race.

It was on Fox13 in Tampa Bay on April 2nd, World Autism Awareness Day.

It’s Autism Awareness Month

The news anchor interviewed Dr. Randhir Jesudoss who is with Orlando Health Bayfront Hospital.

First of all we were told that all the autism is because of better diagnosing.

News anchor:

April 2nd is World Autism Awareness Day.

It’s a day to draw attention to the growing need for programs that are designed to support people with autism spectrum disorder.

According to the CDC, that’s a lot of people, about one in 36 children have some form of autism. It’s something we’re more aware of than ever.

And thankfully, we’re getting better at diagnosing and treating it.

Dr. Jesudoss was introduced. He is an expert and the father of two nonverbal teenage sons with autism. He was asked what autism is, and he assured us that autistic people are just like the rest of us. He said that the CDC has changed autism from a disorder to a condition.

Jesudoss:

It is when somebody has difficulty in social interaction, where there is some language delay. There is some repetitive behaviors.

These are the three things people usually see these kids and adults, but that is not what they are, and what you see is not what they have.

Most have normal cognition, and they have all emotions and everything like a normal person has.

Anchor:

Everything that’s going on inside, is just as normal as it should be. And it’s the outward expression of that.

Autism just shows up at about a year and a half to two years of age.

When did you and your wife notice that your sons might have autism spectrum disorder.

How did that manifest itself?

Jesudoss:

Both of them, we started noticing them around 18 mouths to 24.

Being physicians ourselves, we were a little apprehensive, and then they were officially diagnosed when we moved to the United States. They were four and two years old. . . .

They have inclusion with their peers in the normal school system and has helped them interact better.. . .

Being nonverbal doesn’t mean anything is wrong.

The teachers identified that these boys were not, although they couldn’t speak, but they were able to be instructed in the regular curriculum, and they were able to give the answers as much as a normal child would do.

We have come so far.

Anchor:

Isn’t that something 20 years ago or so and perhaps still in other countries today, they would say, well this child can’t learn, but it’s not that at all.

The anchor asked Jesudoss what parents should do if they suspect their child has autism.

Look at the list of child health specialists profiting off the epidemic of damaged children.

Jesudoss:

The first thing is be screened, and the best connection is your primary pediatrician. Get a referral. There are specialists who deal with these children and adolescents. They are called developmental pediatricians.

And then of course, if there are issues with the neurological system, then you have child neurologists who take care of them. Also if there are any kind of psychiatric issue, then the child psychiatrists will take care of them.

These are the things that are seen in children with autism.  . .

Having autism is normal and so is being nonverbal, having seizures, GI issues and sleep disorders. We just didn’t notice these things in the past in children.

Some of them do have seizures, some of them do have anxiety issues, some of them do have GI issues where I come in to treat them.

Also they do have sleep issues and stuff which can be globally addressed with a specialty called a developmental pediatrician.   

Anchor:

And the great news is, on this World Autism Day, that we have come so far in identifying and treating, in recognizing that there’s really no difference from someone who’s on the autism spectrum disorder to anyone else out there. It’s just a matter of addressing things and giving them all the support that we can.

Jesudoss:

And communication is the key to all these beautiful children and adults.

Anchor:

I love how you said it earlier, how when you came to this beautiful country . . ., you saw the resources that are available to help every child have the full potential and the best life they can. 

The news anchor and the doctor leave us thinking everything is great with autism. It’s just a difference, not a disability. Doctors are doing an incredible job finally noticing a “condition” that’s always been around.

. . . We have come so far in identifying and treating, in recognizing that there’s really no difference from someone who’s on the autism spectrum disorder to anyone else out there. It’s just a matter of addressing things and giving them all the support that we can.

I don’t know who scares me more, the clueless newsman or the disingenuous doctor.

Maybe they should read the commentary from the mother of the severely disabled adult son with autism.

April 7, 2024, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette: Rose Baumann: Misunderstanding autism: It’s not just a different way of being

As we leave behind the capricious days of March for the hope of True Spring in April, members of the autism community prepare to commemorate Autism Awareness/​Acceptance Month. Like many “awareness” months, April has been officially recognized by state and national leaders as a time to acknowledge a disorder and a population that has historically been misunderstood, mistreated, and misrepresented. . . .

No other descriptor besides “profound” is sufficient to describe the things my son struggles with on a regular basis: self-injurious behavior that is so pervasive he wears a protective helmet 24x7 to prevent brain trauma and facial fractures; spikes in aggression that can come out of nowhere, causing property damage and injury to those in his path; anxiety that can trigger incidents of elopement from the home or, worse, a moving vehicle; and communication difficulties that prevent him from telling anyone when he hurts, what he fears, or who may have harmed him (an occurrence that is far too common amongst individuals with profound autism).

Parents like this woman would see the Fox13 interview as absurd and beyond insensitive.

That news anchor completely failed in asking questions. He seemed well-informed on autism as something that lots of kids have, but it’s not a real problem.

The whole thing was basically telling what autism is and what to do when your child is suspected of having ASD. Of course the autism the two of them talked about isn’t what so many children and their parents have to live with.

The real message was, having a child with autism is normal.

Of course it’s one more ludicrous depiction of what will eventually lead to the collapse of everything. I can’t say it more strongly.

No society can survive with huge numbers of children who cannot function normally. They will become DEPENDENT ADULTS and we’ll all be paying for their care. More and more will follow in their footsteps, and the impact autism is having on schools is nothing compared to what the cost of adult care will do to us.

In August, 2023, the Boca Raton Tribune ran the story, ABA Centers of Florida Opens Flagship Autism Care Center in  Boca Raton to Provide Children on the Spectrum with The Care That They Need Quickly   

Although the piece was about the opening of an ABA center and featured a ribbon cutting picture where all the folks were smiling, the opening of a paragraph in the middle of the story was stunning.

“Nearly 5% of children in Florida have autism and we understand that when we make an impact in those kiddos’ lives, we make an impact in their siblings’ lives, in their parents’ lives, in their teachers’ lives.”

5%. How is that not a disaster?

This nightmare has no end in sight.

FOOTNOTE:

When Dr. Jesudoss was interviewed on Fox13 in Tampa Bay, he was first asked about what autism is. Here is his response.

According to the CDC, autism has been changed to what is called autism spectrum disorder because it’s a spectrum of individuals we are talking about who are being affected in different ways because of the disease.

In fact they have changed it from a disease to a disorder to a condition right now.

I thought about the difference between “a condition” and “a disorder.” I’m sure “condition” somehow makes autism sound less severe. Having a condition rather than having a disorder doesn’t sound so bad.

I’m also convinced that the focus on “neurodiversity” and “inclusion” everywhere during Autism Awareness/Acceptance Month are part of a plan to make autism just part of all the neurological conditions that are part of being human.

Lots of people now object to the use of the puzzle piece to symbolize autism. They say autism isn’t a problem to be solved. More and more we’re seeing the neurodiversity infinity symbol being used.

I can see April morphing into Neurodiveristy Affirming Month, where the real story of autism is lost in the sea of entertainers and athletes who’ve recently discovered they’ve been autistic all along.

DenialDenial: How Refusing to Face the Facts about Our Autism Epidemic Hurts Children, Families, and Our Future

By Dan Olmsted and Mark Blaxill
Skyhorse Publishing

Even as the autism rate soars and the cost to our nation climbs well into the billions, a dangerous new idea is taking hold: There simply is no autism epidemic.

The question is stark: Is autism ancient, a genetic variation that demands acceptance and celebration? Or is it new and disabling, triggered by something in the environment that is damaging more children every day?

 


We Must Honor and Acknowledge PROFOUND Autism Too

We Are Here VideoBy Anne Dachel

A commentary in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette on April 7th immediately got my attention because it is the reality check we all need.

While USA Today is out to convince readers that having a child with autism is normal and just “a part of human diversity,” the mother of an adult son with profound autism describes her incredibly difficult life.

The headline makes clear what autism isn’t.

Rose Baumann: Misunderstanding autism: It’s not just a different way of being

Rebranding autism

Unfortunately, there is a movement afoot within the autism community that might abolish the need for an Autism Awareness/​Acceptance month altogether. The growing population of neurodiversity advocates seem to be mainly autistic self-advocates with low support needs, plus scores of self identified autistics, many of whom get their diagnostic authority from Tik-Tok videos or “You might be autistic if” quizzes online.

If they continue to tell the world that autism is not a disorder, the official keepers of the World Awareness Calendar can reassign the month of April to another cause.

Profound autism  

For those with profound autism, a group the U.S. Centers for Disease Control estimates at approximately 27% of the entire autism population, this shift in the narrative from autism-as-a-disorder to autism-as-just-another-way-of-being has done considerable harm.

Mass Poisoning

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

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

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

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

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

Toby wrote:

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

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

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

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

Autism Research from Wuhan? For Real?

Chinese Finger Trap
Get it?

By Anne Dachel

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

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

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

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

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

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

Stimming Acceptance

Pink heart no thanksNormalize. Praise. Elevate. Wow. Now, we know stimming can provide comfort and context to our children. At the same time, not sure how celebrating this aspect of autism is needed. Acceptance? Yes. Explaining to others? Yes. Shame? NO.  Management for times when it simply is not appropriate? Yes, that too.  We do a disservice to our children when we do not help them to fit in, manage behaviors and travel in the NT world. This doesn't mean we don't ADORE them as they are. We celebrate our kids every day.

WBUR, Boston had a news segment entitled, New children’s book ‘Flap Your Hands’ celebrates stimming as expression.

The story promoted a new book by an autistic adult who seeks to normalize a feature of autism.

People with autism often face a stigma for stimming — a repetitive behavior to regulate emotions that can sometimes look like someone flapping their hands or wiggling their fingers.

The children’s book "Flap Your Hands: A Celebration of Stimmingpresents an opposing narrative; stimming is natural and wonderful, taking families through a colorful journey of acceptance and joy.

Here & Now’s Deepa Fernandes speaks with author and illustrator Steve Asbell.

WBUR’s host, Fernandesit, interviewed author Steve Asbell.  Asbell was diagnosed as an adult.

INTERVEW

About his diagnosis:

It helped me not only accept who I am, but honestly celebrate who I  am and practice self-care better. . . .

Like a lot of other late diagnosed autistics, I learned to mask behaviors that would be considered not normal, whether due to stigma or internalized pressures where you just pretty much teach yourself not to do the thing that’s going to get you made fun of. . . .

. . .Even if it’s more discrete, there are ways that pretty much anybody can self-regulate in a way that helps them get through the day, helps them deal with emotions, sensory issues. . . .

A lot of kids are taught from early on to, sadly, not stim.

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

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

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

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

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

There are a variety of skills that can be lost.

Regression may become evident across multiple areas, including:

language

social skills

emotional regulation

motor function

self-directed behavior

It’s just part of having autism.

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

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

And it is common in autism.

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

We really don’t know why regression happens.

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

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

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

Learn the signs.

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

Signs of regression may include:

loss of previously used words or phrases

overall decreased communication

new challenges in forming sentences

grammar mistakes

reverting to infantile sounds, like cooing or babbling

not understanding communication from others

social withdrawal

reduced eye contact

not acknowledging social cues

lack of interest in peer engagement

not wanting to share or take turns

What can a parent do?

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

What age is autism regression common?

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

 Can regressive autism be stopped?

Dr. Bret Weinstein's Dire Warning

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

By Anne Dachel

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

Bret Weinstein Issues a Dire Warning to Senate Panel

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

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

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

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

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

THEY ARE HIDING EVERYTHING.

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

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

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

Where Autism Identifies As Severe

Truth doesn't changeBy Anne Dachel

How we lie to ourselves.

Imagine the forces out there that are able to cover up the truth about the severity of the autism epidemic and the consequences facing governments around the world.

What if, as many thousands of us in the autism community believe, all the autism is the result of the hugely profitable, liability-free, unchecked, unsafe vaccination schedule forced on our children in order to attend school.

There would have to be massive efforts to hide this link. Exposure to the truth would shake the very core of public trust in the medical community and government health care oversight. Naturally everything would be done to dissuade the public from thinking vaccines cause autism.

First of all, pharmaceutical industry advertising pressure would be used make sure that print, television, and online news sources deny any link.

Doctors would be indoctrinated to parrot the mantras VACCINES ARE SAFE, VACCINES SAVE LIVES and STUDIES SHOW NO LINK.

And of course there would be lots of pharma-funded science out there dismissing any possibility that vaccines did bad things to children.

Most important of all would normalizing autism.

How can autism be on the increase if every time the rate is updated to even more horrific numbers, experts and officials all repeated the well worn phrase that it’s all due to BETTER DIAGNOSING and GREATER AWARENESS?

The message is: All the autism is a good thing.

Med Schools Not Preparing Doctors for Autism

DuhNote: I beg to differ with the MedPage article Anne presents. Medical schools are educating their students perfectly, 100% about autism. "It's not caused by vaccines."  Ta da! That's all they need to know. The actual CARE of individuals, aw, just leave that to the parents, the schools, the non-medical therapist.

By Anne Dachel

I recently found an absolutely bizarre story that proves how little the  medical establishment cares about autism and what it’s doing to children.

On February 7th Med Page Today published a piece entitled, Medical Schools Are Not Preparing Us to Care for Autistic Individuals— It's time for that to change

The gist of the article, written by two people in the medical profession, is that doctors AREN’T BEING TRAINED TO DEAL WITH AUTISTIC PATIENTS; REFORM IS NEEDED.

The authors were Reeda Iqbal, a medical student at Georgetown School of Medicine and Sherab Tsheringla, MD, MBBS, a child and adolescent psychiatry resident at the Yale School of Medicine.

Those are some pretty impressive places, and one would expect that top notch schools like Georgetown and Yale would have cutting edge training in something affecting one in every 36 U.S. children, one in every 22 boys.

Sadly, that is not the case.

One of the authors has a severely autistic sibling and for her, it’s a personal issue.

When I entered medical school, I quickly learned that there are important gaps in autism medical education. A 2019 study demonstrated that medical students report low knowledge of ASD, and more than 90% of students cite inadequate preparation for caring for individuals with autism. Medical students also report a greater need for increased education and training in ASD care. …

It does not help that 77% of primary care physicians rate their ability to care for an autistic adult as poor or fair. It is clear that our current medical system is not equipped to care for autistic individuals and their families.

The authors call for more training for doctors-to-be on all aspects of autism.

First, it is important for medical students to understand the heterogeneous symptom presentation of autism, including the different communication styles and sensory sensitivities that exist….

Second, for patients with profound autism, medical students can receive training on behavioral strategies that can be used to address behaviors that are challenging. …

Third, medical students should learn about the different co-occurring conditions associated with autism. …

Clearly Iqbal and Tsheringla accept autism as just part of the human condition. The rate of one in 36 children doesn’t set off alarm bells for them.

Their only concern is that doctors need to be better schooled in autism.

Utterly absurd

Several comments in the article show that they are not interested in doing anything to address autism as the epidemic is clearly is.

As autism prevalence continues to rise, it is increasingly likely that medical students will encounter and care for a patient with ASD.

Those are the code words for NO REAL INCREASE that officials have chanted nonstop for two decades.

The prevalence of autism is increasing, but never the incidence.

Iqbal and Tsheringla are part of the medical community that has unabashedly taken credit for each and every leap higher in the official autism rate.

How is it possible that doctors could have done that if they currently know nothing about autism? Neither of them address this.

Iqbal and Tsheringla write: “…one in three people with autism have profound autism…”

Doesn’t that seem to be an incredible statistic? IF a third of the one in 36 children with autism have severe autism, shouldn’t doctors have figured out what autism is years ago?

The truth is, doctors, along with health officials, have remained clueless about autism on purpose.

IF autism is affecting more and more children, something is causing it. Something has to be done to stop it. The possibility that this is an iatrogenic condition resulting from their childhood vaccine schedule never goes away.

No, the medical playbook will never recognize autism as a crisis. It’s a permanent puzzle, a curiosity we have all the time in the world to figure out.

Iqbal and Tsheringla are fine with the autism rate as it is, and they’ll probably be just as accepting when it’s one in 25 and then one in 20.

The ending of the piece proves my point.

As a first-year medical student, I am often told I am the future of medicine. As a sibling of an autistic individual, I believe it is critical that we enhance the training of future physicians to become competent providers for autistic patients.

Patients with autism deserve to be treated with the highest quality of care. Promoting greater inclusivity and neurodiversity means greater input from the neurodivergent community about how they want their care needs to be met, and building a healthcare system that can respond with humility and adroitness. This begins with the implementation of autism medical education at all medical schools, including my own. Next time I go to the doctor with my sister, I hope that her doctor will be knowledgeable, accepting, and prepared to provide the best care.

That’s the goal: “greater inclusivity and neurodiversity.”

UK Autism Crisis

UK puzzleBy Anne Dachel

“Tens of thousands of children waiting months and years for help after demand rockets”

The UK has announced an “autism assessment and support crisis.”

Please note that AUTISM itself is not a crisis. That can never happen.

There an increase in demand for assessments, but THERE IS NEVER MORE AUTISM.

We are to believe that while the actual autism numbers have never increased, recent findings reveal that there are TENS OF THOUSANDS of children waiting to be assessed for autism.

That can’t be good because there are currently endless news reports about how schools are struggling to deal with the tidal wave of children on the spectrum. Imagine thousands more qualifying for support and services.

A report on February 2nd described how dire the situation is. Getting assessed for autism qualifies students for special education services.

As You Are. Or Were.

As You AreWe've asked the same question for 17 years as the autism rate has exploded: Instead of building more ambulances, maybe we should prevent the car accidents? Families are now waiting years to get into a hospital based autism center for diagnosis. Anne wrote about a new company that is offering quicker, virtual, online service to families tired of waiting. Virtual Autism Diagnostic Evaluations for Kids Speeding up the process is a good thing. Kids needs the diagnosis to access important services. But.... the name alone "As You Are" tweaks my ire. " We'd rename it, "As You WERE." I poked around the website, I found it noteworthy that of the 28 physicians listed, 25 are female, all of whom appear to be under 50. Make of that what you will.

By Anne Dachel

On Jan 16th CBS Boston, WBZ Morning Mix included a brief interview with the CEO of a new company that promises to reduce the wait time for getting a child an autism diagnosis.

It was a cheery exchange.

CEO of AsYouAre.com, Kayla Wagner, talked about her company which is now nationwide. They provide ONLINE ASD DIAGNOSES. Kayla talked about the usual wait times, now over two years, to just seeing a specialist for an assessment.

That was described as “really pretty terrible.”

This can now be reduced to a wait of a few weeks, thanks to the experts at AsYouAre.com.

What was so disturbing about this was the cavalier attitude towards autism itself. No one mentioned the current rate, one that shows no signs of leveling off.

The inference was made that we’re just now becoming aware of all the autism out there. “Awareness is definitely part of it, and it’s important.”

Autism Rates are Now Certifiable

Who remembers this yard flag?
Who remembers this yard flag?

The United States of Autism is where acceptance is a cover word for, "Let's do nothing to stem the tide. Let's pretend it's not decimating families. Let's tell everyone it's a good thing." Autism rates have climbed for more than 30 years. But today, chronic illness and disability are all climbing with little worry.  Cancer. Heart issues. Diabetes. Mental illness. Up, up and no answers. What's really galling is that for all the new schools and BCBA centers, there's little progress or improvement for children and adults with autism. Walk into a day program. Ask the plethora of un- and under-employed adults on the spectrum, even the old Asperger's diagnosis if they are meeting their potential, Ask men and women who should be approaching retirement what they face as they age and take care of their autistic Autism acceptancechildren. See exactly what 19 years of special education has done to help individuals. Autism is NOT a difference. It's a diagnosis. With consequences for the entire family and ultimately, American society. The puzzle piece STILL matters.  Even if autism goes on to infinity and beyond.

ONE IN 36 AND COUNTING

Those of us who have adult children with autism remember a time twenty years ago when people were worried about the condition. It was a new label and people didn’t understand what was wrong with these children who started showing up in greater and greater numbers.

Back in 2004, the official rate was one in every 166 children, one in every 102 boys. Those were concerning numbers at the time. There were numerous congressional hearings looking into the autism increase.

Without exception, every health official who showed up at these hearings denied anything was seriously wrong. Most of all, they debunked the claim that vaccines can cause autism. They had all their pharma-funded population studies showing no link.

Autism was blamed on bad genetics (an updated version of the “refrigerator mom” of the 1950s).

Denying any increase at all was the real focus of health officials.

PART FOUR Autism: Thirty years of lies and cover-up

Big lieNote: This is the final installment of Anne Dachel's Thirty Years series. We're in our 17th year of publication. Many of our readers have adult children with autism in, or approaching, their 30s. Some even older. We must continue to speak our truth - our kids' truth.

'We have put our trust in people who don't deserve it and who fail to earn it'

There would be no end to this series if I were to focus on the people in positions of authority who have lied to us about autism over the years. I have written hundreds of stories about the officials and experts whose job it is to protect the health of our children.

In truth, they have used their positions to promote the interests of the pharmaceutical industry—the entity they’re supported to regulate. Very often, after a certain number of years at the CDC or NIH, they’re rewarded with a lucrative position in some branch of pharma for a job well done. 

Their names are familiar to all of us because of the public positions they’ve taken, reassuring concerned parents that vaccines didn’t cause their child’s autism. They get the mainstream news coverage over and over.

No Cause Just A Big Lie

LieBy Anne Dachel

January 14th political economist Toby Rogers, PhD published another incredible piece on the corruption, collusion and cover-up surrounding autism and vaccines.

He called it, The big lie is having a corrosive effect on the minds of the bougiecrats.

The piece got my attention because I’ve written dozens of times over the past 20 year about what I call, “The Really Big Lie about Autism.” (See four examples at the bottom of this post.)

I have a different take on “the really big lie,” meaning that I’ve long said the main lie was the continual denial that more kids actually have autism. No health official in America has ever recognized that this disorder is on the increase. I’m sure if anyone at the CDC even hinted at it, they’d be gone the next day.

This denial is so critical because IF there’s been no real increase, then they can point to bad genes as the cause of autism. Autism has always affected the human race at whatever the latest rate is, we just didn’t realize what it was.

Toby’s brief article points to ANOTHER AUTISM LIE, the denial that vaccines are the cause.

PART THREE Autism: Thirty Years of Lies and Cover-up

Read Part 1 HERE.

Thomas Insel 2013

The following is an article I wrote about Dr. Thomas Insel in 2013. Not only was Insel the government’s go-to guy on all things autism, especially testifying before Congress, he was also the MC who controlled the official narrative about autism.

Age of Autism 2013, Dr. Tom Insel on Autism: "If There Is a True Increase.." IF?

For several years now I've been following Dr. Thomas Insel's work as head of the Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee.  I've also looked at his lectures on autism.

In 2009, Insel spoke at MIT.  He talked about the environment and autism.  He admitted that there were endless possibilities, but he was firm that vaccines had been looked into and they'd been exonerated.

Then in 2010, he spoke for an hour and a half at the National Institutes of Health.  Insel made the stunning statement, "Eighty percent of the people with a diagnosis of autism [in the U.S.] are under the age of eighteen."

In addition, Insel said, We have responded to this as if it's a crisis. We see this as an enormous public health challenge.  If you look at those numbers, the increase and recognize how many of those kids will become adults, we ...also need to be thinking about how we prepare the nation for a million people who may need significant amounts of services as they are no longer cared for by their parents or as their parents are no longer around.

During his talk, he made it clear that better diagnosing could explain only a small portion of the stunning increase in autism.  He pointed to the environment, but was unable to provide any specific answers.  

Then on Dec 26, 2012, Insel put out the piece, Autism Progress, on the NIMH website.

So what does Insel consider progress in the area of autism?  He cited lots of things about the genetics of autism, early diagnosing using brain imaging and early intervention.  He made stunning statements like:

According to PubMed, there were over 1,000 ASD papers related to genetics or brain imaging since January 2011 - more than three times the number of papers from the same interval a decade ago.

He was quick to tell us that he really doesn't know anything about autism's cause: "We still do not know enough about what causes ASD."

He went on to say this:

What about environmental causes? Several environmental factors, such as exposure to air pollution, agricultural pesticides, and antidepressants, have been reported to increase ASD risk, mostly based on exposure during pregnancy. While most scientists assume that environmental factors interact with genetic susceptibility, we still know far too little about either genetic or environmental factors to make this link.

The strongest language I could find in the article was the need for "urgent attention."  He made a clever, but ambiguous comment, "The 1 in 88 figure in 2008 may still fall short of the mark. In the absence of a more complete explanation, as I have said in an earlier blog, the safest assumption is 'more affected not just more detected.'"

Following that he wrote, "If there is a true increase in children affected, what environmental factor or factors are driving this increase?"

"IF"?...Insel still isn't quite sure IF MORE KIDS REALLY TRULY HAVE AUTISM?

Sounding like we have all the time in the world to ponder this issue, Insel wasn't alarmed. Autism isn't a crisis according to this man.

I still can't fathom how he could put the title "Autism Progress" on this piece, deluding himself into believing that there's actually been any. 

The latest piece I've found from Insel, dated Feb 26, 2013, is nothing short of bizarre as shown by the title,  The Four Kingdoms of Autism. 

Insel finds autism frustrating. It seems to bother him that the autism community has so little consensus on anything and that there's so much "polarization and confusion around autism." (Which Insel doesn't seem to realize comes from the fact that the medical community can't tell us anything definite about the disorder.) 

According to Insel's overview, the divisions over autism are like "kingdoms."  Insel wrote, "Each [kingdom] has its own truths. And each too often fails to understand or even recognize that their truths may not apply to all kingdoms." 

The kingdoms are Illness, Identity, Injury, and Insight.  Their views of autism range from seeing autism as merely an example of neurodiversity to parents who see autism as vaccine injury. 

In Insel's view, there's no single answer about autism.

Insel summarized his perspective:

At different times and for different people, each of these kingdoms has something to offer. We need better diagnostics and treatments; we need better services, especially for adults; we need a strategy for prevention; and we need a deeper understanding of the social brain. As long as each kingdom stays behind its own walls, there is little hope for progress overall.

Insel believes that none of the Four Kingdoms of Autism has the complete truth about autism.

Insel seems to be saying, can't we all just get along?  Can't we all just agree on something? 

With a puzzling lack of concern over the cause of autism, he advocated for services.

 A better way forward will be to find some common ground where the entire community can work together. One such area is the need for better services. Clinicians, self-advocates, parents, scientists, and educators should be able to embrace a goal of ensuring that every person on the spectrum, irrespective of wealth, geography, or ethnicity, receives the best treatments and services.

Insel also made a passing reference about the next approaching segment of the autism nightmare.

The challenge only becomes more complex when children with autism become adults with autism. There are over 1 million parents of Americans with autism-nearly all worried about how their offspring will be cared for if he or she outlives them.

Finally, Insel chided us about our inaction on autism.

Fifty years from now we don't want to look back at this period and wonder why we stayed so long behind these kingdoms' respective bastions, empowering conflict rather than cooperation. Instead, by focusing now on both short term needs and long term solutions we need a collective commitment to science and service to improve the world for both children and adults on the spectrum.

It was stunning to read Insel's views and consider that this man is supposed to be addressing autism in the U.S.  He's the head of the Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee created by Congress and he can't tell us anything.  Where's his indignation over the years of pathetic inaction? 

Insel said this about the Injury Kingdom:

This kingdom was founded by parents who report marked regression after the 18-month vaccination series, when their previously interactive, communicative toddler withdraws and stops speaking. While epidemiological studies do not support a link between vaccination and autism, those convinced that autism is an injury argue that population studies may obscure a link in rare individual cases.

Insel trivialized regressive autism and omitted any mention of the fact that it's been discovered that U.S. government has quietly compensated over 80 cases of vaccine injury that included autism, along with the concession in the case of Hannah Poling.

"Fifty years from now..." 

Fifty years from now we will be living in a society where autism affects the entire population.  It won't be a childhood illness any longer. It'll be a fact of life for a large segment of the population.  We won't have the luxury of speculating on the kingdoms of autism.  There will be one Kingdom of Autism---Bankrupting Cost. 

We will be faced with providing for a never ending population of disabled Americans that we can't explain.  A significant portion of them will never be productive.  We'll all be paying to support them.  They will drain the financial resources of our society.  I can't imagine what autism is going to cost this nation. 

Fifty years from now, Americans caught in the autism nightmare will ask how it could possibly have gotten so bad with authorities doing nothing to stop it.  The abysmal inaction of those we called experts will be seen as outrageous and incomprehensible.

The truth is Insel has omitted the kingdom where he finds himself.  There is a Fifth Kingdom of Autism.  It's called Denial and Cover-up. 

I asked Louis Conte, father of triple boys, two of whom have autism, for his opinion of Thomas Insel.  Here's his response:

Dr. Insel clearly sees divisions within the autism community and has done nothing to address them. His insights do nothing that help people with autism.  He continues to be vague about a true increase in the number of affected children. No increase in autism, no autism crisis and therefore no need to do anything extraordinary about it.

Personally, I would be camped out in the Kingdom called "Injury." I think that children who have suffered brain damage as a result of vaccine injuries (and, yes, other environmental insults) often develop the symptoms of the behavioral disorder called autism. My thoughts on this are supported by the many cases of vaccine injury induced brain damage that the US Government (HRSA) has compensated in the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP).

We need to look at regressive autism.  What happened to these children is important. As Dr. Bernadine Healey stated five years ago, we must study the children who got sick.

The population of vaccine injured children compensated by the US Government represents an important data set that could provide invaluable insight into how autism (and other health conditions) occurs after brain damage. The information regarding these individuals is critical to understanding how autism develops. Is there a vulnerable sub-set of children? What can we learn from these children? There are dozens of important questions.

But we never get to study them because our government is keeping what it knows away from public view. Given the increase in autism, keeping this information shuttered away amounts to negligence and cover-up.

Dr. Insel should be leading the call to study the children who got sick - not just noting that divisions exist within the autism community. Imagine if President Kennedy went to Berlin and simply said "Hey, Berlin, you guys got a big wall there." Imagine if President Reagan said "Nice wall Mr. Gorbachev."

Mr. Insel, tear down the wall. Ask the tough questions.

30 Years of Autism Epidemic: Part 2

LiesBy Anne Dachel

Read Part "Thirty Years of Lies" 1 HERE.

It’s hard to understand how autism could become the childhood epidemic that it is without anyone in charge being alarmed. Maybe it was the slow growth over the past 25 years from one in 250 to today’s one in 36 that conditioned us to accept autism as normal. Maybe it was all the officials and experts who denied any real increase while scratching their collective heads over the cause of autism.

In a number of instances very critical information about autism was revealed and quickly covered up and ignored.

Over the years thousands of parents and experts have descended on Washington D.C. for rallies and speeches which caused only a temporary ripple. Immediately after, the vast majority of elected officials continued to ignore what was happening.

There have also been many congressional hearings on autism. They should have spiked interest, but sadly, after the proceedings, everybody just went home.

Back in April, 2007, there was a hearing about autism held by the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee chaired by Senator Tom Harkin.

Thomas Insel, M.D., director of the National Institute of Mental Health and chairman of the Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee (IACC), was there to testify. 

This is what he had to say about the rate of autism. 

"It is unclear whether the rise in prevalence is due to a rise in incidence, better identification and awareness of the disorder, or both.  A similar increase in prevalence has been observed in many countries outside of the U.S., and in virtually every study, boys are three to four times as likely to have ASDs compared to girls."

30 Years of Lies: Part One

LieBy Anne Dachel

For at least the last 30 years we’ve been lied to about autism.

I’ve been writing about it for around 20 years, so I’m pretty familiar with all of it.

Of course I’m not alone. There’s a multitude of people who’ve been doing the exact same thing. I know many of them personally.

After several decades of hearing the official fraudulent claims, the general public has pretty much accepted the autism cover-up, after all, why would members of the medical community, federal health officials and the media all be lying to us?

Here’s the scenario

About thirty years ago, as the autism numbers began to climb, there seemed to be a genuine interest in what was happening.

In the early 2000s, there were congressional hearings looking at the increase in autism and what might be causing it. I know people who testified in Washington.

Early on the biggest concern was over a possible link to the ever-expanding childhood vaccine schedule which had tripled in the years following the passage of the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986. This act removed liability from the vaccine manufacturers (and from doctors) for any damage their products may cause.

The vaccine industry and their loyal subjects at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention were right there to assure that vaccines are safe, vaccines save lives, and there was no possible link to autism in children. They manufactured convenient population studies “showing no link” and ignored the mounting piles of research tying an unsafe, unchecked, toxin-laden vaccine schedule to neurological damage in children.

A Brilliant Strategy

The best way to counter any connection to vaccines was to promote the idea that autism is nothing new. It has always been a part of the human condition; we just didn’t call it autism.

IF that claim could take hold in the mind of the public, then the increase in the number of vaccines children were getting would be totally unrelated.

Filling School Positions Becoming As Difficult as Day Programs and Group Homes

Abadnonned schoolShort version of Anne's article? No one wants to work with children or adults with behaviors. The elderly are different because they can be chemically restrained, are weaker and more compliant. Our kids are strong. Our teens are stronger. Our adults can be dangerous if (when) they have behaviors. A BCBA in my circle had her orbital (eye socket) bones shattered by a sucker punch out of the blue during an outing with client who had not shown aggression for many months. Paras, day & group home staff are NOT entry level jobs. Except they are. They require training. Experience. Knowledge. And commensurate pay.

By Anne Dachel

A good example of how fast our education system is going down came out on December 19th.

It was from the local NPR/PBS station in Athens, Ohio.

The title didn’t sound too concerning. It was, “Athens schools need more help in the classroom, but job candidates are proving hard to find .”

I’m sure many people didn’t go beyond the headline.

IF a reader did look into the story, there was a lot of news to worry about.

First of all, the local school district can’t get classroom aides to meet the needs of the growing special needs population.

The Athens school district is trying to hire more professionals to support students with special needs, but it isn’t getting many applicants.

The additional hires are needed because of the number of students who have fallen behind or have behavioral challenges, or both.

In the middle of the report was this incredible statement: 

For example, the number of second and third graders on an individualized education program, or IEP, is over 25 percent.

The district needs more “intervention specialists” and “paraprofessionals,” but it’s not because there are so many students with learning problems.

No, what’s wrong here is BEHAVIOR.

Never Mind What's Under The Kilt: Scotland Special Education

Scottish PECSThere isn't enough single malt Scotch in the world to make these numbers disappear. Special Education is devouring the UK.

By Anne Dachel

(UK) Scotland: 36.7% of students have special needs; up from 34.2% in Dec '22

The increases show no sign of slowing down

Let me update readers on just how quickly things have gone downhill in Scotland.

Here are the official statistics

Scotland: Percentage of students with “additional support needs”

2019—30.9%

2020—32.3%

2022—34.2%’

2023—36.7%

These numbers come out in December, and I  hate to think what next year will show.

What if this trend continues?

This should be a national emergency in Scotland. Image what the future will be like.

What if there is a two percent increase every year? By 2030 or even sooner, half of all schoolchildren in Scotland will need additional support.

The Ghost of Christmas Future for Autism is Grim

FutureScroogeBy Anne Dachel

A story aired on December 13th on Channel 4 News, London is a warning for everyone in the U.K.

The title mentioned thousands disabled with autism, but it actually only reported on one 28 year old man with severe autism.

Thousands with autism and learning disabilities stuck in mental health hospitals 

More than 2,000 people with autism and learning disabilities are stuck in mental health hospitals across England, despite repeated Government promises to end the practice.

Last month we reported on Nicholas Thornton – who’s been moved to around a dozen inappropriate settings: a safeguarding report on his care shows how poor it’s been.

Our Health and Social Care Editor Victoria Macdonald caught up with him – and a warning her report contains details and images some viewers may find distressing.

I transcribed the news report because it was so concerning to me for one reason.

In the report about this young man in Essex with autism who is being so neglected and mistreated, we’re told, “Nicholas’s care is commissioned by the Essex County Council.”

VIDEO: Nicholas Thornton on a day out in the summer with his mother and brother.  He’s a 28 year old man with autism and learning difficulties, who is currently an inpatient at Rochford Mental Health Unit in Essex, despite having no diagnosed mental health problem. 

He is non-verbal but is able to reply by typing.

When we met them in August, his brother Sebastian read out his words.

It’s like torture that I can’t get away from the alarms and everything.

With The Wind, Science Revealed an Interview with Dr. Paul Thomas

With the wind
Anne Dachel transcribed an interview from Children's Health Defense TV on Nov 1, 2023 in which Dr. Paul Thomas interviewed Dr. Ken Stoller, who many of us know from his work with autistic children. Both doctors put pediatric health before profit, and suffered the consequences. But I'll bet they sleep at night.

By Anne Dachel

With the Wind, Science Revealed with Dr. Paul Thomas

Dr. Thomas Interviews Dr. Ken Stoller

Doctors everywhere must be seeing the rapid decline in the health of children. They may even suspect that the ever-increasing vaccine schedule contributes to the sickest generation of children in our history, but few, very few, are willing to speak out about what’s happening and jeopardize their careers. Instead most go along to get along.

There are some courageous physicians out there who are not afraid of the pharma-controlled medical establishment.

Both Dr. Stoller and Dr. Thomas lost their medical licenses because they refused to comply with the one-size-fits-every child vaccine schedule.

Dr. Stoller lost his license for giving medical exemptions to ten children in the state of California  with pre-existing medical conditions, including a four month old with congestive heart failure.

We can only hope that others will also speak out about the unsafe, unchecked battery of vaccines injuring yet another generation of children and the link to the explosion in autism in children around the world.

Listen to their discussion about the absence of any good science showing vaccines are safe or efficacious.

This whole vaccine program, in the words of Dr. Stoller, “is a scam.” Here is the transcription:

Dr. Thomas: Dr. Paul here.  Welcome to With the Wind, Science Revealed. My guest today is Dr. Ken Stoller. He’s the author of a book, Incurable Me…   https://www.incurableme.org/ 

In fact he’s got a new version coming out, Incurable Us.

This is a masterpiece on any chronic disease you might be facing. You’ve got to get this book.

We cover his journey from being a board certified pediatrician into functional medicine. He’s a hyperbarics oxygen expert, and we talk about what’s happened in the field of medicine and what’s happening in our world today….

…I want to just chat with you about maybe living a spiritual life in these times we’re finding  ourselves in. I’m troubled with what I hear in the news about what’s going on in the world.

I feel it’s time to really pray. Can we as a people seek that higher power, seek that love and ask for that intervention into the lives of our entire world? I don’t think alone, anybody can fix this, but united and together in a spiritual powerful place, change can happen. I believe change will  happen….

INTERVIEW

…I read somewhere [in] your writing, you’re working to close the divide between quality health care and the complex trio of pharmaceutical companies, insurance agencies and government influence….

Dr. Stoller: I was temporarily paralyzed from the waist down two week after receiving a polio vaccine when I was four years old.

Of course I didn’t know what had happened at the time. I didn’t know for decades what had happened. I knew that if I got involved in medicine, one day I figure out, I’d ask the right person.

It never happened. It didn’t matter how many pediatric neurologists I asked or pediatricians. They had no idea what had happened to me.

That speaks to the fact that vaccines are a sacred cow. You don’t even put them on the table as a potential cause of any untoward reactions.

It was only 45 minutes. …I was at the little girl across the street’s birthday party, and I was not feeling well  I sat down on a lounge chair and instantly I could not move my lower extremities

I was taken to the scene of the crime, which was my pediatrician’s office.

But even as I was being taken there, …I was moving my legs again. By the time the pediatrician came in, I couldn’t tell anything had happened.

I turned to my mom and I said did I get the polio vaccine anywhere near that little girl’s birthday party? And she said, yes, two weeks before.

Thomas: What do you think of the narrative that it was the vaccine that got rid of polio?

Stoller: The polio virus, it’s an enterovirus, and there are many enteroviruses and some are probably more dangerous than others.

If there’s a toxic co-factor, and what I mean by that is it really needs to have your immune system compromised. And one of the best ways to compromise your immune system is with pesticides.

These enteroviruses that have been with us from eons never caused anything but diarrhea and an upset stomach until pesticides showed up.

The first cases of paralysis were taking place in the areas that were most heavily using lead arsenate pesticides. This was in the late 1800s. 

DDT ended up replacing lead arsenate. It got to the point where the government was recommending that DDT be sprayed on everything and everywhere.

It actually was making the polio epidemic worse because the DDT destroyed people’s immune systems.

So this virus which normally might just cause you diarrhea, was now getting into your central nervous system and causing paralysis.

The countries that used the most DDT…have the most cases of paralysis.

We couldn’t blame DDT It would have created tremendous liability for the government because not only did they encourage it, but they were spraying it everywhere. …

Dr. Thomas asked Dr. Stoller why he went into pediatric medicine.

In pediatrics, most of your patients do their best to get well. They’re full of vim, vigor and youth, and they help you help them get better.

Dr. Stoller questioned the vaccine schedule.

Thomas: You had this growing awareness that the childhood vaccine schedule was part of the problem.

In medical school we’re just taught that vaccines are safe and effective and this is what you do, right? They didn’t really teach us much.

Stoller: I don’t think they even said safe and effective. They just said, this is when you give them. It’s not something you questioned. You didn’t question the vaccines.

This was like 1989, early 1990 and I mistakenly thought I needed to obtain informed consent from parents for this new hepatitis B vaccine. I didn’t know anything about this new hepatitis B vaccine

What was curious to me was, how did they get approval to do studies to show this was effective for one day old infants, because that was what they were recommending?

I spent about three months on and off trying to find something in the medical literature that would provide rationale for giving hepatitis B vaccine to a one day old infant whose mother did not have hepatitis B….

It has absolutely no benefit to an infant whose mother does not have hepatitis B, but here we are giving it to everybody.

This is a scam. The whole hepatitis B vaccine thing is a scam.

And if this is a scam, are the other vaccines that I’ve been blindly giving also a scam?

So I started researching the other vaccines.

Dr. Stoller saw his first autistic patient.

Now at the same time, I saw the first autistic child. I had never seen autism, ever, in my residency, in medical school, nothing.…

It took years for me to figure out that what I was doing was blocking gluten or gluten fragments from getting into this child’s bloodstream. …

If gluten’s the problem, the answer is to stop eating gluten, not take a chemical that blocks its absorption. 

That’s how I got both into the vaccine vigilant mode, and it’s also how I got into treating autistic kids. 

This is not some kind of psychiatric disorder. This is a medical problem that has potential interventions, including going on a gluten free diet.

Because I was learning so much about the vaccine program and all these other vaccines, most of which are scams, I was giving longer and longer informed consent lectures.

Basically for 40 minutes obtaining informed consent, which I didn’t know I didn’t have to do anymore because the 1986 Vaccine Act relieved pediatricians of having to obtain informed consent for vaccines.

It was not required anymore to get informed consent to give vaccines.

Thomas: It took away all liability, so you could do whatever you wanted and it wouldn’t matter.

Stoller: My informed consent speeches were getting longer and longer. And no one, after spending 40 minutes of uncompensated time, wanted vaccines, after I gave the true pros and cons.

So I stopped giving them. That’s how it started. I stopped giving them completely in 1997….

Dr. Stoller couldn’t understand the declining health of children when he first started in medicine.

I didn’t understand why I was seeing so many ear infections. I didn’t understand why I was seeing so much eczema. I didn’t understand why I was seeing so much asthma. 

This is a new phenomenon. I don’t remember when I was a kid, every other kid having an ear infection or bad asthma. There’s something in the environment, but what?...

He looked into vaccine ingredients.

Despite all the research I had done on vaccines, I didn’t really look at them in terms of what’s in them. What are the ingredients?

I was just looking at them, do they work?  Is there good clinical evidence that they work, not about what are they made of?

It took a little longer for me to figure out; I’m looking at mercury poisoning. …

You remember that study that came out around 2000 showing that the hepatitis B vaccine in Canada—because originally the hepatitis B vaccine did have thimerosal, the mercury preservative.

Thimerosal is not a preservative. It’s an adjuvant, but they said it was a preservative.
If something’s an adjuvant, you have to—I thought—test it to make sure it’s safe.

As they were phasing out mercury, they were adding in aluminum.

HHS never reported to Congress on the safety of vaccines as they were required to do.

These people have rules. They don’t follow their rules. For example, the 1986 Vaccine Act required HHS every two years to report to Congress about how they’re improving the safety of vaccines. [They] never made one report.

They were violating the law to their benefit. So there were no reports on vaccine safety.

They don’t care about vaccine safety.

1986 Vaccine Act indemnified the vaccine makers.

That act, the 1986 Vaccine Act, removed safety issues from under the mantel of the manufacturer. HHS itself was now responsible for safety, which they completely ignored….

Just before the 1986 Vaccine Act, the FDA went on record stating what their policy is:

“Safety issues, no matter how well founded, are not to interfere with national vaccine policy.”

Thomas: It’s all about the program.

StollerIt’s about the program, not about whether they’re harming anybody, or whether the vaccines work. It’s about protecting the program.

Thomas: And boy have they done that on steroids now

Stoller: I got a target on my back when I came out heavily against the HPV vaccine.

There was a documentary that was being filmed, and I was the first one to be interviewed for it.

Merck found out about it, saw the footage and obviously would have seen me. They ended up paying off the two guys who were doing this documentary. So the whole documentary vanished.

I think I got on the radar of these pharmaceutical companies. Also I would going to board of pharmacy meetings and pointing out that the way vaccines are made, they way they’re tested violated the drug act in New Mexico where I was practicing at the time.

Nobody cares. The CDC approved it. That’s good enough for them.

Dr. Stoller saw the results of not vaccinating.

When I started my solo private pediatric practice, day care was just coming onto the scene.

Those kids would be in my office every two weeks. It was really good for business.

I had the moms give the kids a teaspoon of colloidal silver first thing in the morning and first thing when they got back from daycare.

They stopped coming in. They weren’t getting sick every two weeks. They would still get the viruses, but they wouldn’t get the secondary infections that really made them sick.  Colloidal silver really improved the quality of health of these kids….

Dr. Thomas asked Dr. Stoller if he saw autism, severe asthma, diabetes in his unvaxxed patients.

The answer to that is no. I didn’t make the connections completely the way you did that the vaccines not only didn’t work, but were driving the ear infections, were driving the eczema, were driving the asthma. …

HBOT

Hyperbaric oxygen is providing oxygen under pressure

It was 1995 and one of my friends who’s the head of Apple Computer Advanced Technology Group was found dead in bed by his wife, revived by paramedics, was in a coma for two weeks.

When I visited him in the hospital, I was surprised that treatment he was getting was an IV drip.

That’s when I found out about hyperbaric oxygen therapy.

When I found out you could treat kids with cerebral palsy, I was sold.

I opened up my first center in Santa Fe in 2001, and my first patient was a cerebral palsy patient. She went in the chamber with her grandmother, and when they were done with their treatment, the grandmother said, I have fibromyalgia and my symptoms are gone.…

That’s how hyperbaric oxygen works. It works by rehabilitating and reviving mitochondrial function. Mitochondria are the energy centers of our cells. They convert oxygen and sugar into the gasoline the cells run on.

I could not stop treating with hyperbaric oxygen therapy because I could see what it was doing for people, how it was returning functionality to their lives.

I was treating things that had no treatments: stroke patients, traumatic brain injuries, cerebral palsy, post polio syndrome, multiple sclerosis, Lyme disease. The list was getting longer and longer. …I considered it near magic.

I never looked back after starting to treat patients with hyperbaric oxygen therapy….

Follow the money

In 2005, I published a paper in…Pediatrics. My paper was on treating fetal alcohol syndrome with hyperbaric oxygen therapy.

I really wanted to write a paper about cerebral palsy, but there were so many people gunning for hyperbarics oxygen and cerebral palsy because other specialties were making money on cerebral palsy. The baclofen pumps that the orthopedists would install, the splints that the kids needs.

It’s a business treating kids with cerebral palsy, so if you come along and say you can cure cerebral palsy or vastly improve it clinically, you’re stepping on other people’s financial toes.

There was no one interested in fetal alcohol syndrome.…

So I published this paper in 2005. It took 15 years for another group to duplicate my findings….

I thought when this paper got published; people would be knocking down my door. Fetal alcohol syndrome is supposedly the most common non-hereditary cause of mental retardation.

You and I know that’s not true. The most common non-hereditary cause of mental retardation is the vaccines.

The vaccines are destroying the kids’ brains.

Fetal alcohol syndrome is a far second to the damage the vaccines have caused to kids’ brains….

My study was met with crickets. Absolute crickets….

And the paradigm is if it’s not making the pharmaceutical company money, you don’t hear about it. End of story.

Pharmaceutical companies will sell things to you they know won’t work….

They went after Dr. Stoller’s license.

In 2017 I wrote a blog for the Bolen Report where I spelled out exactly what was going to end up happening in 2020. I didn’t know exactly what the organism was going to be.

I said it needs to be an organism we have a vaccine for because they’re going to blame the unvaccinated.

In my blog, I just picked mumps as an example….

My book came out in 2016….

In California they had that bill called SB277 which eliminated informed consent completely and the only way you could get out of taking vaccines was with a medical exemption, no personal, religious waivers or anything like that.

What the legislators did, because they wouldn’t have been able to pass the bill without it, they greatly expanded the reasons you could offer a medical exemption, for example family history…

I went to the medical board and I said, I have questions about this new law.  Can you help me clarify those questions….

They said, no, we don’t do that.  End of story.

So I hired a lawyer… because I said I wanted to have a lawyer’s advice when I’m creating my protocol for giving medical exemptions.

You’re not supposed to lose your license if there’s a new law and you sought legal advice on how to implement the law.

This was, I think—

The Federation for State Medical Boards has always had it in for alternative medical practitioners. Anything they could do to get rid of them, they have tried to do.

So this was a way of basically trapping physicians who didn’t completely buy the whole vaccine scram. And trapping them and eliminating them.

They didn’t care about the law. They didn’t care about the facts. They just punished as many physicians as they could.

Thomas: That’s what I thought it was. You guys were given this expanded medical exemption, encouraged in a way. They knew people would then take advantage of that to support their patients.

So you’re doing what’s right for your patient, and you’re trapped. …

I don’t know how many physicians in California have lost their license or are suffering greatly under a lot of stipulations.

Stoller: I remember saying at my hearing, “Shame on anyone who would give a four month old in congestive heart failure, vaccines.

The medical exemptions I gave out were very legitimate. They just didn’t follow CDC contraindications. But they didn’t care.

Like I said, the fix was in, and the Fair Hearing Bureau, which is not fair at all, sees their job as supporting whatever is the position is of the Medical Board.

Dr. Stoller is currently working.

I’m in the appeal process in New Mexico for my license there, because once you lose your license in one state, they start attacking you in every other state you had a license. …

I’m basically doing hyperbaric oxygen therapy with a family that I saved their lives ten years ago, and they installed their own facility, and they’re having me run it for them.

You don’t need a license to operate a hyperbaric chamber.

Thomas: You can just cure more and more people, or at least greatly help them….

Stoller: …But hyperbaric oxygen’s going to have to wait the dying paradigm we’re in falls apart, which will be happening soon. It’ll happen with the financial collapse that’s coming.

The aftermath of this financial collapse that’s coming might eliminate all third party payers, many of these NGOs. There’s just not going to be money.

Everyone’s doing all these nasty things because they have money. They’re getting money.

If patients have to use their own money or their own money or whatever they’re using to pay for services, they’re going to gravitate to the therapies that they know are the most efficient and efficacious.

I think it’s going to be after the collapse that things like hyperbaric oxygen therapy will come to the fore, and it will become standard practice for treating traumatic brain injuries and kids with cerebral palsy, fetal alcohol syndrome, things like that. 

Thomas: … This has been so fun for me because I’ve followed a similar journey as you have. Your book, Incurable Me, you cover some really big stuff….

This is Dr. Stoller’s advice for all of us:

Stoller: Do your own research. Be prepared. As you do your research, have the things you think you might need for treating yourself in your home already….

We’re going to be going through a rough patch. People need to be as optimistic and positive and envision what they want the world to look like, how they want the world to function after we get rid of the New World Order group and all their plots.

Our unlovely society, as we’re finding out, it is quite unlovely: the organ trafficking, the sex trafficking, our country being flooded with drugs as part of a fifth column war against us.

These things are going to pass, and people need to start thinking about, how do I want to be operating in this new world. How do I want this world to operate?

The sun will come out eventually here, and we need to help create this new society.

That’s how I got both into the vaccine vigilant mode, and it’s also how I got into treating autistic kids. 

This is not some kind of psychiatric disorder. This is a medical problem that has potential interventions, including going on a gluten free diet.

Because I was learning so much about the vaccine program and all these other vaccines, most of which are scams, I was giving longer and longer informed consent lectures.

Basically for 40 minutes obtaining informed consent, which I didn’t know I didn’t have to do anymore because the 1986 Vaccine Act relieved pediatricians of having to obtain informed consent for vaccines.

It was not required anymore to get informed consent to give vaccines.

Thomas: It took away all liability, so you could do whatever you wanted and it wouldn’t matter.

Stoller: My informed consent speeches were getting longer and longer. And no one, after spending 40 minutes of uncompensated time, wanted vaccines, after I gave the true pros and cons.

So I stopped giving them. That’s how it started. I stopped giving them completely in 1997….

Dr. Stoller couldn’t understand the declining health of children when he first started in medicine.

I didn’t understand why I was seeing so many ear infections. I didn’t understand why I was seeing so much eczema. I didn’t understand why I was seeing so much asthma. 

This is a new phenomenon. I don’t remember when I was a kid, every other kid having an ear infection or bad asthma. There’s something in the environment, but what?...

He looked into vaccine ingredients.

Despite all the research I had done on vaccines, I didn’t really look at them in terms of what’s in them. What are the ingredients?

I was just looking at them, do they work?  Is there good clinical evidence that they work, not about what are they made of?

It took a little longer for me to figure out; I’m looking at mercury poisoning. …

You remember that study that came out around 2000 showing that the hepatitis B vaccine in Canada—because originally the hepatitis B vaccine did have thimerosal, the mercury preservative.

Thimerosal is not a preservative. It’s an adjuvant, but they said it was a preservative.
If something’s an adjuvant, you have to—I thought—test it to make sure it’s safe.

As they were phasing out mercury, they were adding in aluminum.

HHS never reported to Congress on the safety of vaccines as they were required to do.

These people have rules. They don’t follow their rules. For example, the 1986 Vaccine Act required HHS every two years to report to Congress about how they’re improving the safety of vaccines. [They] never made one report.

They were violating the law to their benefit. So there were no reports on vaccine safety.

They don’t care about vaccine safety.

1986 Vaccine Act indemnified the vaccine makers.

That act, the 1986 Vaccine Act, removed safety issues from under the mantel of the manufacturer. HHS itself was now responsible for safety, which they completely ignored….

Just before the 1986 Vaccine Act, the FDA went on record stating what their policy is:

“Safety issues, no matter how well founded, are not to interfere with national vaccine policy.”

Thomas: It’s all about the program.

StollerIt’s about the program, not about whether they’re harming anybody, or whether the vaccines work. It’s about protecting the program.

Thomas: And boy have they done that on steroids now

Stoller: I got a target on my back when I came out heavily against the HPV vaccine.

There was a documentary that was being filmed, and I was the first one to be interviewed for it.

Merck found out about it, saw the footage and obviously would have seen me. They ended up paying off the two guys who were doing this documentary. So the whole documentary vanished.

I think I got on the radar of these pharmaceutical companies. Also I would going to board of pharmacy meetings and pointing out that the way vaccines are made, they way they’re tested violated the drug act in New Mexico where I was practicing at the time.

Nobody cares. The CDC approved it. That’s good enough for them.

Dr. Stoller saw the results of not vaccinating.

When I started my solo private pediatric practice, day care was just coming onto the scene.

Those kids would be in my office every two weeks. It was really good for business.

I had the moms give the kids a teaspoon of colloidal silver first thing in the morning and first thing when they got back from daycare.

They stopped coming in. They weren’t getting sick every two weeks. They would still get the viruses, but they wouldn’t get the secondary infections that really made them sick.  Colloidal silver really improved the quality of health of these kids….

Dr. Thomas asked Dr. Stoller if he saw autism, severe asthma, diabetes in his unvaxxed patients.

The answer to that is no. I didn’t make the connections completely the way you did that the vaccines not only didn’t work, but were driving the ear infections, were driving the eczema, were driving the asthma. …

HBOT

Hyperbaric oxygen is providing oxygen under pressure

It was 1995 and one of my friends who’s the head of Apple Computer Advanced Technology Group was found dead in bed by his wife, revived by paramedics, was in a coma for two weeks.

When I visited him in the hospital, I was surprised that treatment he was getting was an IV drip.

That’s when I found out about hyperbaric oxygen therapy.

When I found out you could treat kids with cerebral palsy, I was sold.

I opened up my first center in Santa Fe in 2001, and my first patient was a cerebral palsy patient. She went in the chamber with her grandmother, and when they were done with their treatment, the grandmother said, I have fibromyalgia and my symptoms are gone.…

That’s how hyperbaric oxygen works. It works by rehabilitating and reviving mitochondrial function. Mitochondria are the energy centers of our cells. They convert oxygen and sugar into the gasoline the cells run on.

I could not stop treating with hyperbaric oxygen therapy because I could see what it was doing for people, how it was returning functionality to their lives.

I was treating things that had no treatments: stroke patients, traumatic brain injuries, cerebral palsy, post polio syndrome, multiple sclerosis, Lyme disease. The list was getting longer and longer. …I considered it near magic.

I never looked back after starting to treat patients with hyperbaric oxygen therapy….

Follow the money

In 2005, I published a paper in…Pediatrics. My paper was on treating fetal alcohol syndrome with hyperbaric oxygen therapy.

I really wanted to write a paper about cerebral palsy, but there were so many people gunning for hyperbarics oxygen and cerebral palsy because other specialties were making money on cerebral palsy. The baclofen pumps that the orthopedists would install, the splints that the kids needs.

It’s a business treating kids with cerebral palsy, so if you come along and say you can cure cerebral palsy or vastly improve it clinically, you’re stepping on other people’s financial toes.

There was no one interested in fetal alcohol syndrome.…

So I published this paper in 2005. It took 15 years for another group to duplicate my findings….

I thought when this paper got published; people would be knocking down my door. Fetal alcohol syndrome is supposedly the most common non-hereditary cause of mental retardation.

You and I know that’s not true. The most common non-hereditary cause of mental retardation is the vaccines.

The vaccines are destroying the kids’ brains.

Fetal alcohol syndrome is a far second to the damage the vaccines have caused to kids’ brains….

My study was met with crickets. Absolute crickets….

And the paradigm is if it’s not making the pharmaceutical company money, you don’t hear about it. End of story.

Pharmaceutical companies will sell things to you they know won’t work….

They went after Dr. Stoller’s license.

In 2017 I wrote a blog for the Bolen Report where I spelled out exactly what was going to end up happening in 2020. I didn’t know exactly what the organism was going to be.

I said it needs to be an organism we have a vaccine for because they’re going to blame the unvaccinated.

In my blog, I just picked mumps as an example….

My book came out in 2016….

In California they had that bill called SB277 which eliminated informed consent completely and the only way you could get out of taking vaccines was with a medical exemption, no personal, religious waivers or anything like that.

What the legislators did, because they wouldn’t have been able to pass the bill without it, they greatly expanded the reasons you could offer a medical exemption, for example family history…

I went to the medical board and I said, I have questions about this new law.  Can you help me clarify those questions….

They said, no, we don’t do that.  End of story.

So I hired a lawyer… because I said I wanted to have a lawyer’s advice when I’m creating my protocol for giving medical exemptions.

You’re not supposed to lose your license if there’s a new law and you sought legal advice on how to implement the law.

This was, I think—

The Federation for State Medical Boards has always had it in for alternative medical practitioners. Anything they could do to get rid of them, they have tried to do.

So this was a way of basically trapping physicians who didn’t completely buy the whole vaccine scram. And trapping them and eliminating them.

They didn’t care about the law. They didn’t care about the facts. They just punished as many physicians as they could.

Thomas: That’s what I thought it was. You guys were given this expanded medical exemption, encouraged in a way. They knew people would then take advantage of that to support their patients.

So you’re doing what’s right for your patient, and you’re trapped. …

I don’t know how many physicians in California have lost their license or are suffering greatly under a lot of stipulations.

Stoller: I remember saying at my hearing, “Shame on anyone who would give a four month old in congestive heart failure, vaccines.

The medical exemptions I gave out were very legitimate. They just didn’t follow CDC contraindications. But they didn’t care.

Like I said, the fix was in, and the Fair Hearing Bureau, which is not fair at all, sees their job as supporting whatever is the position is of the Medical Board.

Dr. Stoller is currently working.

I’m in the appeal process in New Mexico for my license there, because once you lose your license in one state, they start attacking you in every other state you had a license. …

I’m basically doing hyperbaric oxygen therapy with a family that I saved their lives ten years ago, and they installed their own facility, and they’re having me run it for them.

You don’t need a license to operate a hyperbaric chamber.

Thomas: You can just cure more and more people, or at least greatly help them….

Stoller: …But hyperbaric oxygen’s going to have to wait the dying paradigm we’re in falls apart, which will be happening soon. It’ll happen with the financial collapse that’s coming.

The aftermath of this financial collapse that’s coming might eliminate all third party payers, many of these NGOs. There’s just not going to be money.

Everyone’s doing all these nasty things because they have money. They’re getting money.

If patients have to use their own money or their own money or whatever they’re using to pay for services, they’re going to gravitate to the therapies that they know are the most efficient and efficacious.

I think it’s going to be after the collapse that things like hyperbaric oxygen therapy will come to the fore, and it will become standard practice for treating traumatic brain injuries and kids with cerebral palsy, fetal alcohol syndrome, things like that. 

Thomas: … This has been so fun for me because I’ve followed a similar journey as you have. Your book, Incurable Me, you cover some really big stuff….

This is Dr. Stoller’s advice for all of us:

Stoller: Do your own research. Be prepared. As you do your research, have the things you think you might need for treating yourself in your home already….

We’re going to be going through a rough patch. People need to be as optimistic and positive and envision what they want the world to look like, how they want the world to function after we get rid of the New World Order group and all their plots.

Our unlovely society, as we’re finding out, it is quite unlovely: the organ trafficking, the sex trafficking, our country being flooded with drugs as part of a fifth column war against us.

These things are going to pass, and people need to start thinking about, how do I want to be operating in this new world. How do I want this world to operate?

The sun will come out eventually here, and we need to help create this new society.

Wuhan bioweapons coverThe Wuhan Cover-Up: And the Terrifying Bioweapons Arms Race (Children’s Health Defense)

Both the agreements and disagreements stimulate my thinking and emotions, even when they make me angry or concerned. Read him and make up your own minds." —Alan Dershowitz

“The Wuhan Cover-Up will blow out of the water the international disinformation campaign by US and Chinese government officials and their bribed scientists that COVID-19 somehow magically jumped out of the Wuhan wet market.

Special Ed in Soaring Ireland

Abadnonned schoolHow will schools sustain their programs as children who do not learn as students did 50 years ago flood the classrooms? Is there over-diagnosis? Sure, there's some. But I can tell you that schools do NOT jump to provide services unless pushed or it's patently obvious that a child has the need.  Members of my home care team work in the local schools here in Connecticut. They see a flood of kids who are not toilet trained, can not perform simple self help skills, have disruptive behaviors and barriers to learning their ABCs and 123s. The older teachers are better equipped to work with this group than the newly minted teachers who are adrift at sea.  And the older teachers are quitting or being forced out. Happy Monday!

Before I talk about the big news about special education out of Ireland, keep in mind that officially in the Republic of Ireland more than 25 percent of students have special needs.

Dec 7, 2021, Inclusion at a crossroads: Special education in Ireland

It is now estimated that over a quarter of all students in Ireland’s mainstream schools have additional learning needs and/or disabilities.

And not only did they reveal that jaw-dropping statistic, but we were told that NUMBERS CONTINUE TO INCREASE. 

Even more troubling is the fact that IN IRELAND, ONE IN EVERY 21 STUDENTS HAS AUTISM as of last December.

Dec 14, 2022, Cork Independent: Raised awareness from parents around autism

This kind of service is needed more now than it ever has been, as figures published this year by the Department of Health reveal that 14,000 children between the ages of four and 15 have an autism diagnosis - around 4.7 per cent of the school population.

This is four times higher than the figure of just 1.2 per cent 10 years ago.

4.7 percent is the scary number of ONE IN EVERY 21 STUDENTS.

And in Northern Ireland, just over the border, it’s one in 20.

Heaven Help Us

NeverNever, as long as I live, will I credit my daughters' debilitating diagnosis with improving MY life or making me a better person. Have I sought (and often created from whole cloth) a silver lining? Yes. But haven't we ALL? We have to find joy where we can. I give autism ZERO credit for anything. ZERO. And I'm STILL no Mother Teresa.   Feel free to argue the point in the comments. But some parents do credit autism for making their lives better- read Anne's article. Chris Peden is a devoted father and Catholic living with his family in Northern Virginia.  ...He loves hearing stories of how having a family member on the Autism Spectrum made their lives better.

By Anne Dachel

On November 29th the National Catholic Register published an article entitled, 4 Ways Raising a Child with Autism Has Blessed My Life, by Chris Peden, the father of two autistic children.

While I’m sure the piece was well-intended, it revealed the truly desperate situation we all find ourselves when it comes to understanding autism.

Our only recourse is to somehow learn to live in a world of disabled children who never used to be here.

Peden described the struggles he and his wife faced raising their sons and what he has learned from the experience.

Here’s some of what Peden wrote:

…But what I want to share here is less about my wisdom and more about where God has shown me his love by gracing us with the opportunity to raise autistic boys….

Autism In Australia: A Morass of Thoughts

Abadnonned schoolWow. I know one commenter who will have a field day with the range of thoughts out of Australia regarding the increase in autism.

By Anne Dachel

Australia can’t figure out what to do about all the autism. One report puts their autism rate at one in every 25 children, another at one in 23.

Experts are in denial. It’s either over-diagnosing or more of the “better diagnosing” that we’ll always hearing about. Either way, it’s NOT MORE AUTISM. Nothing to worry about.

On November 12th there was a story out of Australia about closing special schools and mainstreaming disabled students by being “inclusive.”

I’m sure this was motivated by the soaring number of special needs children they have to educate.

ABC News: If special schools close, students with disability need more inclusive mainstream education, experts say

In its final report handed down in September, the disability royal commission called for the phasing out of segregated education by 2051.

It's a call that has sparked deep debate.

Even the six commissioners disagree. Only three — including the two who live with disability — recommended phasing special schools out. The other three did not think a total phasing out of special schools was necessary.

"There has to be a bigger investment in our [mainstream] education system. And this is an opportunity to do that, for it to be better for all."

Of course the real problem is something that barely got a mention.

Since 2015, the number of students with disability enrolled in Australian public schools has increased by 29 per cent, according to the Australian Education Union's 2023 For Every Child report.

Shocking Special Ed Numbers Most Ignore

Abadnonned schoolNote: Schools are running on fumes. Teacher shortages. Classrooms of kids unable to learn traditionally. Behaviors escalating. Do we solve ANY problems, ever?

By Anne Dachel

Here in America we seem to be just fine with ever-increasing numbers of disabled children. There are lots of stories in the news about new autism therapy centers opening across the country.

We champion neurodiversity, celebrate autism awareness and we want to be sensory-friendly.

Most of all, numbers never bother us.

We’re told all the time about MORE special needs children, and we never ask where they’re all coming from. That would not be caring.

Officially 15 percent of students in the U.S. have special needs.

I really wonder how they came up with that average since we’re regularly told about much higher numbers.

A story just out from Hampshire Co, WV raises a number of questions.

Nov 10, 2023, The 74: West Virginia Declares Emergency in Hampshire County Schools Special Ed 

The district will be required to address a number of problems, including a lacking graduation rate for students in special education.

The West Virginia Board of Education declared a state of emergency in Hampshire County Schools special education program after nearly three years of shortcomings for vulnerable students.

Why We Still Publish? "Let's Celebrate the Uniqueness of Autism!"

Autism Reality"We really just want to make sure people celebrate the uniqueness of autism and the beauty of autism and understand more about it."

Autism has been whitewashed beyond hope. But those of us with children with the diagnosis know the dark truth. Teachers know. Adult providers turn individuals in need away... because they know. And doctors and pharma know. Age of Autism has always, and will always shout the truth. Just as long as we can. Please consider a donation to our annual matching gift campaign. Unlike autism numbers, we've stalled a bit and need your help. Thank you.

By Anne Dachel

There was outrageous autism coverage from Fox31 in Denver on Nov 12th.

It was dismissive and insulting. I know too many people struggling with children severely disabled with autism. This coverage makes no mention of any of that.

CDC data suggests rise in autism diagnoses in children 

 Data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) suggests an increase in the prevalence of autism in children.

Suggests? We’ve have 20+ years of soaring, unexplainable increases in autism.

 About one in 36 children were identified with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in 2020, according to the CDC. This is up from one in 44 in 2018 and one in 150 in 2000. It also shows prevalence among different groups of individuals is now relatively similar. 

The reporter on the video calls the one in 36 rate “new data.” That rate came out in March, 2023.

Dr. Amanda Kelly is the president and CEO of Firefly Autism, an organization in Colorado that provides support and services to those with autism and their families. 

“We really just want to make sure people celebrate the uniqueness of autism and the beauty of autism and understand more about it,” Kelly said.

Downplaying Autism Down Under

Tis but a flesh woundBy Anne Dachel

The Sydney Morning Herald
 published a desperate piece on Nov 12th trying to downplay the current rate of autism among children in Australia.  I say desperate because as the number of children with ASD continues to soar, it has to be explained away. The rate can’t be real.

Deny, Deny, Deny

This is why we regularly see mainstream publications telling us that autism isn’t really growing, and if it is, it’s linked to the parents. A story in Psychology Today in May 2023 is typical.  Here Cara Goodwin, Ph.D explained that all the autism we’re seeing today is the result of greater awareness, changing diagnostic criteria, increased availability of services, increase in parental age, and more premature babies. These reasons have been used each and every time the autism rate took another leap higher over the past 20+ years.

Now the Morning Herald gives us another reason to dismiss the autism increases:

Nov 12, 2023, The unique factor that could explain why autism rates in Australia are growing faster than the global average

Autism rates in Australian children are among the highest in the world, leading a senior researcher to suggest the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) could be driving steeper than average growth in diagnoses.

The Scary Autism Numbers That Never Scare

Halloween-jack-o-lantern-ANote: While making holiday events inclusive IS a good thing, what we REALLY need is programming and housing for onslaught of autistic adults.  Society has opened independent, assisted living, dementia and Alzheimer's living quarters.  We WILL need a version for autism - staffed by very large, very strong men mostly. Surely someone will monetize the misery?

By Anne Dachel

On October 23rd there was a nice human interest piece about making Halloween “autism-friendly.” The coverage was from PHL17.

The news anchor interviewed the principal of an autism academy in Woodbury, NJ, and in the course her of talk about ways to ‘limit sensory triggers’ on Halloween, she noted that educators are now seeing ‘one in 10 individuals’ who have autism.

There was no follow-up. The news anchor merely noted that “It’s super wide spread.”

Officially only 3 percent of U.S. children have autism. In California and Florida however,  it’s already around 5 percent. 

So in New Jersey, 10 percent of children have autism. I guess no number is too much when it comes to autism.

The coverage was from PHL17: Ways to Make Halloween Autism-Friendly

Correct As Usual King Friday

Neighborhood of make believe
"Correct as usual, King Friday."  Welcome to the neighborhood of make believe.

By Anne Dachel

It’s all just make believe

When it comes to autism, we all have to pretend.

I say that about every aspect of the disorder. Whatever we see happening right before our eyes, we have to tell ourselves it isn’t real.

A once rare disorder is now so common that just about everyone knows someone or is related to someone with an autistic child. In the face of this, we’re continually told that it’s always been this way.

Autism has always affected one in every 150 children, one in every 92 boys (2007),

…one in every 88 children, one in every 54 boys (2012),

…one in every 59 children, one in every 36 boys (2018),

…one in every 44 children, one in every 27 boys (2021),

…and now one in every 36 children, one in every 22 boys (2023).

(I left out several of the official increases, but you get the idea. Every time the autism rate increased, it was never a real increase. It was always dismissed as “better diagnosing.” I’m confident that the next increase, probably something like one in every 30 kids, will be due to MORE “better diagnosing.”)

Pretending that the numbers are nothing to worry about it only one aspect.

The Dirty Thirty

30 puzzleNote: Anne has a great report. But I gotta tell you, seeing Autism Science Foundation and Alison Singer's name, dare I say it, triggered me to a time when they so actively worked against our kids. Decide for yourself.

By Anne Dachel

There was a study on autism published in JAMA (Journal of the American Medical Association) on October 2nd.
It was all about the discovery that over 30 percent of kids who had an autism diagnosis at age 2 or 3, were no longer considered autistic by the time they were 6.

Fox News said this:

A significant share of kids with autism tend to "outgrow" the disorder within a few years of diagnosis, a new study has found.

Researchers from Boston Children’s Hospital followed 213 children who were diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) as toddlers (between 12 and 36 months of age).

By the time they were 5 to 7 years old, nearly four out of 10 (37%) of the children no longer met the criteria for an autism diagnosis, according to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.

Female children were more likely to no longer meet the criteria, as were those with "higher baseline adaptive skills," according to the study findings.

This study got a lot of coverage in the mainstream news. It was reassuring that maybe autism numbers weren’t something to worry about after all.

60,000 on Autism Waitlist in Canada


Abadnonned schoolBy Anne Dachel

Over the past two decades we’ve adjusted to more and more children diagnosed with autism. Several generations have grown up with autism as a fact of life.

There are no congressional committees looking into the autism numbers like they did at the beginning of the 21st century. Medical experts and health authorities have absolutely no interest in what makes a child autistic.

The huge portion of the population of children with autism is aging into adulthood and that will be increasingly a crisis everywhere, but I can guarantee that the issues will be more funding and more services without any real concern over the fact that autism is now an adult disorder too.

The epidemic shows no signs of leveling off so the need to provide for more children with autism will continue, along with adults. I don’t know how governments will handle this.

Recently unbelievable numbers were in the news in Canada.

In Ontario, parents are demanding Premier Doug Ford’s government do something to address the 60,000 children on a wait list for autism services.

October 16, 2023, Toronto City News: Parents call for change as waitlist for autism services grows to 60,000 in Ontario

Parents of children with autism protested at Queen's Park to draw attention to delays in therapy and problems in special education affecting autistic children. As Tina Yazdani reports, the waitlist to access core autism services has grown to 60,000.

In 2019 when the Ford government took over, there were 23,000 children on a waiting list for services. Now the numbers have essentially tripled, despite the promise to eliminate the wait time.

Children today in Ontario can expect a five to seven year wait for any services after being diagnosed.

The government has doubled funding to over $483 million (U.S), but that will only cover core services for 10,000 children, according to the Toronto City News..

One parents quoted in the news coverage said this: “We have to decide as a society, do we care? Can we come out and support other parents whose children are disabled? This can happen to any of us.”

These will increasingly be the questions we all face.

Wuhan bioweapons cover

The Wuhan Cover-Up: And the Terrifying Bioweapons Arms Race (Children’s Health Defense) 

“Gain-of-function” experiments are often conducted to deliberately develop highly virulent, easily transmissible pathogens for the stated purpose of developing preemptive vaccines for animal viruses before they jump to humans. More insidious is the “dual use” nature of this research, specifically directed toward bioweapons development. The Wuhan Cover-Up pulls back the curtain on how the US government's increase in biosecurity spending after the 2001 terror attacks set in motion a plan to transform the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), under the direction of Dr. Anthony Fauci, into a de facto Defense Department agency.

Back on December 7, 2021, a story was published on a site called, Research Outreach. The title was Inclusion at a crossroads: Special education in Ireland

It was a look at various ways of providing special education servcies to students: inclusion in  mainstream classes, special classes and special schools.

In this piece were some stunning statistics that didn’t seem alarming at all to those involved in this collaborative work.

Special education in Ireland has undergone dramatic changes over the last 30 years. As well as changes to funding models and a rise in the number of special education teaching posts, there have been increases in the number of students with additional learning needs and/or disabilities attending mainstream schools, as well as the number of special classes in mainstream schools. The number of special schools has also grown.
