Doubts Cannot be Allowed to Exist
CDC will tell you that vaccines don’t cause autism. (https://www.cdc.gov/vaccinesafety/concerns/autism/cdc2004pediatrics.html) Vaccines are safe and effective. What they don’t tell you is no vaccine has ever been tested for safety or efficacy— unlike all other drugs. It is the only medical product which is not required by law to be tested with a control group taking an inert placebo. No vaccine has ever been compared to an inert placebo–which is the routine way of testing all other drugs. No vaccine has been safety tested for more than days or weeks, but autoimmune diseases and cancer can take months or years to develop. The crazy thing is that no test is done to determine if the vaccine is effective. There is only one criterion for CDC–does the vaccine produce antibodies? If it does, the FDA approves it and CDC puts it on schedule.
It is no accident that you are not told all the facts. It is the policy of government agencies to keep you in the dark. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) stated their policy on this issue clearly: “any possible doubts, whether or not well founded, about the safety of the vaccine cannot be allowed to exist in view of the need to assure that the vaccine will continue to be used to the maximum extent consistent with the nation’s public health objectives”(Stoller, 2019.p.21) The agencies that are supposed to protect children from the consequences of corporate greed are working in tandem with Big Pharma and their goal is not to protect the health of Americans but to expand the program—at the expense of our health.
“Any possible doubts about the safety of the vaccine cannot be allowed to exist”–that is the credo of the government and the mainstream media. It explains why critics of the vaccine program are ridiculed and vilified, if not demonized, as conspiracy nuts, and anti-scientific “anti-vaxxers.”
HHS has a National Vaccine Plan. Barbara Loe Fisher aptly commented that “the National Vaccine Plan is really a Vaccine Marketing Plan for the pharmaceutical industry.” https://www.nvic.org/NVIC-Vaccine-News/March-2020/the-national-plan-to-vaccinate-every-american.aspx described in 2010 its plan for our future. The Plan is described in HHS literature beginning in 2010: “Coverage rates[of vaccinations] across the lifespan will increase, lowering outbreaks of VPDs [vaccine-preventable diseases] and decreasing geographic pockets of low coverage. Provider and public confidence in both vaccines and the entities involved in licensing, recommending, and monitoring vaccine safety will increase while the worry, concerns, and anxiety regarding vaccines, particularly with respect to safety, will decrease. Providers, parents, and the public will also support vaccines as an important and necessary part of our nation’s health system.” (https://www.hhs.gov/sites/default/files/nvpo-midcourse-review-final.pdf,p25)
To paraphrase the above: The public will realize that vaccines are safe and effective, even if they aren’t–they will have confidence both in vaccines and in government agencies which are pushing these vaccines, like CDC. The booklet leaves out one sentence: “Big Brother loves you.”
So, in HHS’s ideal scenario “worry, concerns, and anxiety regarding vaccines, particularly with respect to safety, will decrease.” But from a humanitarian perspective if the vaccine is not safe it is not desirable that concern should decrease. The FDA stated that it is determined that the vaccine “will continue to be used to the maximum extent”–as long as this is consistent with public health objectives. But what happens when it isn’t? That possibility is not even considered by HHS––which speaks volumes. Parents” concern is for the health of their children, whether or not vaccines will continue to be used to the maximum extent.
The documents I quoted are not anomalies. In June 2000 a now famous meeting took place at Simpsonwood Conference Center in Georgia. The meeting included about 60 vaccine program high-level officials from the CDC and the Food and Drug Administration, the top vaccine specialist from the World Health Organization, and representatives of every major vaccine manufacturer.
The discussions at this meeting demonstrate that the policymakers have internalized the FDA credo that doubts about safety cannot be allowed to exist. Kennedy wrote a seminal article in 2005 (published in both Salon and Rolling Stone) that helped to publicize the meeting, aptly titled Deadly Immunity. It was in fact after Kennedy read the Simpsonwood transcript that he became convinced that there is a link between vaccines and autism.
In the article Kennedy wrote, “I devoted time to study this issue because I believe that this is a moral crisis that must be addressed. If, as the evidence suggests, our public-health authorities knowingly allowed the pharmaceutical industry to poison an entire generation of American children, their actions arguably constitute one of the biggest scandals in the annals of American medicine.” https://childrenshealthdefense.org/news/deadly-immunity-government-cover-mercuryautism-scandal-2/Since Kennedy wrote those words further evidence has been revealed that heightens the CDC’s culpability–and that of the press for helping to cover this up to this day.
Kennedy noted more recently: “All of the barriers that are meant to protect our children: the government, the lawyers, the regulatory agencies and the press – the checks and balances in our democratic system that are supposed to stand between corporate power and our little children have been removed… “https://ahrp.org/why-is-the-cdc-petrified-of-the-film-vaxxed/
The purpose of the Simpsonwood meeting was to discuss a new study by CDC epidemiologist, Tom Verstraeten– based on a CDC database containing the medical records of 100,000 children– that made it clear that there was a link between a mercury-based preservative in the vaccines (thimerosal) and a dramatic increase in autism and numerous other neurological disorders.
“I was actually stunned by what I saw,” Verstraeten told those assembled at Simpsonwood, citing not only his data but the large number of earlier studies that indicate a link between thimerosal and speech delays, attention-deficit disorder, hyperactivity and autism. Since 1991 when CDC and the FDA had recommended that three additional vaccines laced with the preservative thimerosal be given to extremely young infants —in one case, within hours of birth– the estimated number of cases of autism had increased fifteenfold, from one in every 2,500 children to one in 166 children in 2005 when Kennedy was writing.
(It is several times higher today than in 2000, when the Simpsonwood meeting took place; even though thimerosal has been eliminated, children are being given higher amounts of other toxins, such as aluminum.)
Of course, Verstraeten was stunned, but he ought not to have been surprised. At the time of the Simpsonwood meeting, at the age of two months, infants routinely received three inoculations that contained a total of 62.5 micrograms of ethylmercury — a level 99 times greater than the EPA’s limit for daily exposure to methylmercury, a related neurotoxin.
On the second day of the meeting an interesting event occurred. The meeting chairman, Dr. Richard Johnston, a pediatrician, was called out for an emergency call. When he returned he shared: “[M]y daughter-in law delivered a son.. Our first male in the line of the next generation and I do not want that grandson to get a thimerosal containing vaccine…I want that grandson to only be given thimerosal-free vaccines” (Wilcox, 2018, p159.)
This sounds like an impassioned argument to ban vaccines with thimerosal and he did argue that “it was desirable to remove thimerosal from US vaccines,” but he had no objection to hiding the revelations from the public, and saw no need to remove thimerosal from vaccines exported to “developing countries” (Ibid, p.160).
Verstraeten’s findings were alarming to all the discussants but “instead of taking immediate steps to alert the public and rid the vaccine supply of thimerosal, the officials and executives at Simpsonwood spent most of the next two days discussing how to cover up the damaging data,” Kennedy wrote. (Deadly Immunity – Government Cover-up of a Mercury/Autism Scandal • Children’s Health Defense).
Dr. John Clements, who represented the WHO at the EIS conference, expressed alarm about the direction of the research, which he viewed as a threat to the vaccination program. He warned that the information should not be allowed to reach the public, and he bluntly stated the study should not have been done “because the outcome could have… been predicted.” In other words, he knew all along that the vaccines were harmful, but “doubts about the safety cannot be allowed to exist”:
“And I really [don’t] want to risk offending everyone in the room by saying that perhaps this study should not have been done at all, because the outcome of it could have, to some extent, been predicted…, and we have all reached this point now where we are left hanging, …I know how we handle it from here is extremely problematic.” — Dr. John Clements, World Health Organization
“[T]hrough the freedom of information that will be taken by others and will be used in ways beyond the control of this group. And I am very concerned about that as I suspect it is already too late to do anything regardless of any professional body and what they say.”
“I am very concerned that this has gotten this far, and that having got this far, how you present in a concerted voice the information to the ACIP [Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices] in a way they will be able to handle it and not get exposed to the traps which are out there in public relations.
“My mandate as I sit here in this group is to make sure at the end of the day that 100,000,000 are immunized with DTP, Hepatitis B and if possible Hib, this year, next year and for many years to come, and that will have to be with Thimerosal-containing vaccines unless a miracle occurs and an alternative is found quickly and is tried and found to be safe.” In other words, it did not matter to Clements how harmful the vaccines were—as long as`100 million kids were immunized (and the vaccines were sold).
Quoted in Vera Sharav, “The Vaccine Program: Betrayal of Public Trust & Institutional Corruption. Part 1 of 7.” JANUARY 22, 2018
“The Vaccine Program: Betrayal of Public Trust & Institutional Corruption. Part 1 of 7.”
Dr Robert Chen:
“The issue is that it is impossible, unethical to leave kids unvaccinated..” (Wilcox,2018, p160)
The fear was that if the information got out many people would be less likely to vaccinate at all.
Other comments from those present include: “We could exclude the lowest exposure children from the database”; “We could remove children that got the highest exposure levels since they represented an unusually high percentage of the [adverse] outcomes”; “We can push and pull this data any way we want to get the results we want;” “We could have predicted the outcomes.”
A discussion ensued about how to hide and manipulate the data to conceal the link between mercury and autism. CDC’s Roger Bernier reminded everyone to : “consider this embargoed information…and very highly protected information.” There was a consensus that— to quote the FDA– “any possible doubts, whether or not well founded, about the safety of the vaccine cannot be allowed to exist in view of the need to assure that the vaccine will continue to be used to the maximum extent …”(Stoller, 2019, p.21) The qualifying phrase “consistent with the nation’s public health objectives” was obviously not a factor.
Kennedy noted, “the government has proved to be far more adept at handling” the damaging data than at protecting children’s health. “https://childrenshealthdefense.org/news/deadly-immunity-government-cover-mercuryautism-scandal-2/
After the Simpsonwood meeting William Egan of the FDA fulfilled his appointed task and told a Congressional hearing, “The FDA considers all vaccines to be safe and effective. It is essential that all children receive all vaccines according to the currently recommended schedule” (Wilcox, 2018, p.164).
But while maintaining mercury was safe, the FDA decided to use another “preservative” in place of Thimerosal – evidently since they feared that the vaccine program would attract negative publicity. (This was years before the media took its vow of silence.)
The CDC allowed the drug companies to sell off their stock of mercury-based vaccines until 2004, they bought up the remaining vaccines from Big Pharma to export to developing countries (evidently poisoning poor children was not a problem) and allowed the companies to continue using the preservative in some American vaccines — including several pediatric flu shots as well as tetanus boosters routinely given to eleven-year-olds.
The uppermost concern of the officials entrusted with the safety of America’s children was to protect the reputation of the program— not to protect the children. Although they removed the mercury, they allowed Big Pharma to sell off their existing stocks of vaccines. Rep. Dan Burton’s House Government Reform Committee concluded in its final report. “This epidemic [autism] in all probability may have been prevented or curtailed had the FDA not been asleep at the switch regarding a lack of safety data regarding injected thimerosal, a known neurotoxin.” The FDA and other public-health agencies failed to act, the committee added, out of “institutional malfeasance for self protection” and “misplaced protectionism of the pharmaceutical industry.” (https://childrenshealthdefense.org/news/deadly-immunity-government-cover-mercuryautism-scandal-2/)
But the public health technocrats were not alone. The mainstream media, fattened with revenue from drug industry ads, has helped to conceal the dangers of vaccines with The New York Times to this day describing (in an editorial) “anti-vaxxers” as “the enemy” and dishonestly assuring readers that science has proved vaccines are harmless, “Scientists, especially, are uncomfortable with black-and-white statements, because science is all about nuance. But, in the case of vaccines, there are some hard truths that deserve to be trumpeted. Vaccines are not toxic, and they do not cause autism. Full stop.”
There is a postscript to this incident. In 2013, Dr. William Thompson a head scientist found himself talking on the phone to Brian Hooker, a scientist and father of a vaccine-injured child. Overwhelmed with guilt Thompson made a confession to Hooker. Under orders of his supervisors in 2002, he had destroyed data from a CDC experiment which showed a link between vaccines and autism. Hooker was excited because he knew the study to which Thompson referred was one frequently used to demonstrate that vaccines do not cause autism. (https://ahrp.org/why-is-the-cdc-petrified-of-the-film-vaxxed/)
Thompson had wanted to reveal this in 2002 but he was threatened with the loss of his job and he kept quiet. But after talking to Hooker he could keep silent no longer. “When I talk to you, you have a son with autism, I have great shame now when I meet families with kids with autism because I have been part of the problem…[T]he CDC is so paralyzed now by anything related to autism….they’re afraid to look for things that might be associated [with autism]” (Wilcox,2018, p.172).
The New York Times did not cover the story.
Vaccines are Not Toxic: The Vaccine Faith
In 2019, the World Health Organization (to which vaccine evangelist Bill Gates was the second largest donor, after the government of the US) declared vaccine hesitancy “the growing resistance to widely available lifesaving vaccines” (New York Times)–was one of the top ten health threats in the world, alongside air pollution, climate change, HIV. The editorial Board of The New York Times sprung into action, declaring that “anti-vaxxers” are “the enemy” and called on the U.S. government to “get tough” by waging a “bold and aggressive” pro-vaccine campaign that includes eliminating religious exemptions for vaccination and includes “tightening restrictions around how much leeway states can grant families that want to skip essential vaccines.” https://www.nvic.org/nvic-vaccine-news/january-2019/who,-pharma,-gates.aspx. In other words the paper long considered a bastion of liberalism takes a stand against informed consent, against our constitutional rights, and urges the state to force families to submit to “essential” vaccines.
The title of the editorial was, “How to Inoculate Against Anti-Vaxxers”
It states, “Yes, there are chemicals in vaccines, but they are not toxic”–either a dishonest or a delusional assertion, as a cursory glance at the ingredients reveals! They claim of course to speak in the name of science, “No, vaccines can’t overwhelm your immune system, which already confronts countless pathogens every day.” The Times told its readers, “It’s also O.K. to get out of the gray zone. Scientists, especially, are uncomfortable with black-and-white statements, because science is all about nuance. But, in the case of vaccines, there are some hard truths that deserve to be trumpeted. Vaccines are not toxic, and they do not cause autism. Full stop.” https://www.nytimes.com/2019/01/19/opinion/vaccines-public-health.html?action=click&module=Opinion&pgtype=Homepage Vaccines are not toxic.
That is a lie. If it is not a lie, it is an irresponsible and appalling statement for a paper esteemed for investigative journalism.
J. B. Handley, the father of an autistic boy, states in his book How to End the Autism Epidemic that he read all 27- 29 of the studies that are purported to prove that vaccines don’t cause autism (p88). The testing is conducted by the industry. Only one vaccine is studied, MMR (measles, mumps, rubella), and none of the studies use the proper control group – unvaccinated children. To determine whether vaccines cause autism one should not focus on one vaccine when children are given 16 vaccines and over 70 injections. As David Kirby, former NY Times investigative journalist wrote, “It is illogical to exonerate all vaccines, all vaccine ingredients, and the total US vaccine program as a whole, based solely on a handful of epidemiological studies of just one vaccine and one vaccine ingredient” (p.87, Handley, 2018).
Nor should one use as a control group subjects who are injected with another toxin, as is invariably done in vaccine studies. That is cheating. It is like comparing Salem with Marlboro, and concluding Salem does not increase the risk of cancer. Furthermore, safety testing for drugs lasts 5 years. With vaccines adverse events are recorded for a week or less, despite the fact that autoimmune illnesses take weeks or years to manifest. (Handley, p.229). The fact that this kind of “safety” testing is permitted – only for vaccines — tells us that the government is covering for the pharmaceutical industry and that it is not protecting children
For example, one study CDC used to demonstrate vaccines don’t cause autism compared children who received more mercury in their vaccines to children who received slightly less mercury (Handley, p.88). Yet, CDC was forced to admit, that even this study with a bogus placebo could “neither prove nor disprove” an association between mercury and autism. The same is true of the other “signature” study–referred to as the Tozzi study— which compared children who received 62.5 mcg to those who received 137.5 mcg of ethyl mercury, published in 2009 in Pediatrics and reached no conclusion (p90).
But that is not the end of it– the mainstream media also comes into play. The media might as well be a PR firm hired by Big Pharma.. As Handley points out: “The PR machine for these studies is something to behold. The Academy of Pediatrics [the pro-vaccine guild of pediatricians], publishes these studies, and on the day they are released, every major news organization in the country reports on the studies, and every article sends the same basic message: Vaccines are safe, and they don’t cause autism” (p.91). For example the AP headline for the Tozzi study was, “Study Adds to Evidence of Vaccine Safety.” This is the same message, the same lie, The New York Times asserted in the name of Science.
There is a religious aspect to the vaccine crusade: “The powerful vaccine ‘gospel’ has swept up regulators, medical trade associations, physicians, science journals, the popular press and others in a kind of consensus dogma that has become more important than the children [these institutions were] supposed to protect.” (CHD, 2018, p1). The children do not matter– these institutions exist to serve the State which itself exists primarily to serve the interests of corporate America. The children are of no more value than raw materials in a factory. Those who dissent, even parents of vaccine-injured children, are ridiculed as anti-science, “anti-vaxxers” and treated by the press as malefactors– in another era they would have been denounced as heretics and burned at the stake.
Again, I remind readers that the strongest evidence that vaccines are harmful is provided by the mass “experiment” brought about by the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA) in 1986. In this “experiment” we compare those born before the act and those born afterwards. We are not looking at the results of one vaccine but all vaccines–since by the late 1990s almost all school children were adhering to the schedules mandated in all states. And although the control group (those who received half as many vaccines or even less in the 1950s) was not unvaccinated, the difference was stark, as mentioned. In the 1960s 1 in 10,000 kids had autism; in 1985, 1 in 2,500 10 yr old kids had autism; in 1989, 1 in 1,000; in 1999, 1 in 500; in 2000, 1 in 150; in 2008, 1 out of 88; in 2016:1 in 68. In the following section I will look at other illnesses caused by vaccines (https://www.nvic.org/getdoc/6cd24653-fd19-49e5-842a-3917e15de533/medical-science—public-trust.aspx).
I think most parents who think vaccines are safe have no idea about these statistics. I would guess that they never read the ingredients in the vaccines with which their children are injected.
Here is a partial list of the ingredients: thimerosal, aluminum, formaldehyde, antibiotics, egg protein, monosodium glutamate (MSG), squalene, gelatin, polysorbate 80, phenoxyethanol, aborted human fetal lung tissue, monkey kidney cells.
Thimerosal (mercury)–although it was supposedly removed from all vaccines it is still in the tetanus toxoid vaccine (Tt), and meningococcal vaccines and in flu shots, including some given to children and pregnant women. Like aluminum it is a neurotoxin–both have been implicated in autism. Aluminum is in at least half the vaccines mandated for children. J.B. Handley who read all the scientific studies on autism believes it is a most potent toxin, the one most responsible for autism. If we calculate the total aluminum dose from 36 vaccines given to the baby in the first few years, we see that the total dose is 30.6 mg—many times the 0.85 mg considered safe by the FDA. https://www.vaccinationinformationnetwork.com/vaccines-brain-development-and-autism-dr-russell-blaylock-md
Formaldehyde is a well known carcinogen that is in a handful of vaccines. Gelatin can provoke an allergic response, including anaphylaxis.https://www.nvic.org/Doctors-Corner/Lawrence-Palevsky/Aluminum-and-Vaccine-Ingredients.aspx
Many suspect the squalene-containing anthrax vaccine was responsible for Gulf War syndrome. (https://vaxxter.com/the-worst-ingredient-of-all/) Polysorbate 80 is in several vaccines; it is an emulsifier which caused cancer in animal tests but most importantly it is used in pharmacology to assist in the delivery of certain drugs across the blood-brain barrier. Pavelsky asks, “What viral, bacterial, yeast, heavy metal or other vaccine containing ingredient need to pass into the brains of our children?” It may account for the high concentrations of aluminum found in the brains of autistics. https://www.nvic.org/Doctors-Corner/Lawrence-Palevsky/Aluminum-and-Vaccine-Ingredients.aspx
MSG is an excitotoxin. Phenoxyethanol is a derivative of ethylene glycol, or antifreeze–it is currently used in 2 vaccines. The cell lines upon which the vaccine is grown include fetal lung tissue and monkey kidney cells.
These are a few of the more common ingredients that are intentionally included in vaccines. But contamination has been a continuous problem. For example, two contaminants were monkey virus in polio vaccines and pig viruses in rotavirus vaccines. In the 1950s up to a third of polio vaccines in the U.S. were contaminated with simian virus 40 (SV40), which came from the monkey kidney cell cultures used to make the vaccines. Institute of Medicine stated in 2002 that this could contribute to human cancer. Every time you grow human virus on animal tissue you run the risk of picking up an animal virus which would be included in the vaccine. Dr Judy Mikovits wrote, “Every scientist who works with these viruses …recognized the possibility that if you put human tissue and mouse tissue together, the possibility is that you’re going to pick up a virus that is silent in the mouse…but it kills the human or causes serious disease in the human. …[But] you might not see the cancer for two decades.”
https://childrenshealthdefense.org/news/looking-back-looking-forward-cancer-and-vaccines/ Glyphosate, a carcinogen, was also found in several vaccines.
Of course very few patients–and few doctors–know what is in vaccines.According to Dr Lawrence Palevsky, “All the vaccine ingredients are poisonous, carcinogenic or potentially harmful to the skin, gastrointestinal, pulmonary, immune and neurological systems in our bodies.” https://www.nvic.org/Doctors-Corner/Lawrence-Palevsky/Aluminum-and-Vaccine-Ingredients.aspx
Are all those toxins necessary for the efficacy of the vaccine? We don’t know but, as Kennedy notes, what we do know is that since Big Pharma has no liability there is no incentive for Big Pharma to spend the money to even try to make safer vaccines.
(https://childrenshealthdefense.org/news/truth-with-robert-f-kennedy-jr-episode-10/?itm_term=home) But with all those toxic ingredients, does not common sense indicate that vaccines are likely to entail considerable risk of harm? (We will see below that there is strong evidence that children vaccinated according to CDC mandates– and thus their doctor’s recommendations– are much sicker than unvaccinated children.) Would there be any readers here surprised and shocked if it turned out that injecting a stew of poisons into babies and toddlers every few months would have long lasting deleterious effects on their bodies?
When I first read the list of ingredients in vaccines my first thought was that there is no way I would voluntarily allow anyone to inject that into me! My second thought was: How could anyone inject those ingredients into a poor tiny baby? I think there are two kinds of people–those who are appalled when they read the list of ingredients, and those who think, “If the experts say so, it must be fine.”
I expect Everyday Concerned Citizen readers will be appalled. I think ordinary Americans would tend to agree, if they knew – but most don’t bother to investigate. They are convinced by the word of their doctor that vaccines are safe and effective. (Even today’s vaccine safety activists– like Polly Tommey— once trusted their doctors.) Not that their doctors know much if anything about vaccines but Americans assume they know.
Americans assume physicianss are the one profession to which they can safely surrender the care of their bodies and souls —in today’s disenchanted secular world, in the popular imagination doctors are our angels, they are messengers of the gods. The physician is Moses carrying the tablets down from the mountaintop where he or she communed with the Most-High.
To doubt the doctor, to doubt the vaccine, is to question the accumulated wisdom of civilization itself, the goodness of the social order in which we live, it is to disdain, to disrespect, the greatest achievement of the modern world – Medical Science. This is apostasy from civilized society, it is heresy, it is barbarism. Such persons, such contemptible “anti-vaxxers,” deserve to be excommunicated from the civilized world –in another era these blasphemers would have been executed.
By refusing to be vaccinated, they declare their defiance of civilization— these selfish miscreants, refusing the purification of the vaccine, threaten to pollute the tribe which has been purified and consecrated by vaccination. These potential carriers of the dangerous germs can contaminate the community, infest the innocent– they are a menace to society. (It is never explained why the vaxxed are not protected by the vaccines—but no matter, a scapegoat is needed.)
According to the sacred narrative of the Vaccine religion, it was vaccines that saved us from the scourges of smallpox and polio. The fact that historical research casts doubt upon this trope— casts doubt upon the decisive and indispensable role of vaccines, and that there were other factors that accounted for the disappearance of these epidemics (e.g. sanitation, improved hygiene) is irrelevant – to even assert this is itself a sacrilege (Humphries, 2013). Anathema upon the anti-science heretics who doubt vaccines!
The fundamentalist Christian knows that Jesus was the son of God who died for our sins and on the third day rose from the dead. So, the epigones of the Vaccine religion know that vaccines saved humanity from epidemics that threatened the existence of humanity itself, that protected us from suffering, death, pestilence, chaos. The memory of this collective trauma is activated every time the selfish ex-vaxxers attack vaccines today.
They are not only impugning the value of CDC’s ever growing schedule of vaccines—72 jabs for children– they implicitly threaten to undermine the hegemony of the narrative of the triumph of medical Science over chaos, over nature, they depreciate the sacred story of our miraculous redemption by the vaccine, by medical Science. Thus they threaten to destroy the sacred narrative which undergirds the multi-billion dollar vaccine industry–the vaccine industrial complex including Big Pharma, CDC, NIH, pediatricians, politicians and the mainstream media.
Such heretics, such malefactors who seek to convince others to shun vaccines do not deserve an audience. Civilized people should not enter into a debate with “enemies” of society, as The New York Times called them—most of these whiners are parents of vaccine-injured children.
Wrapped in the mantle of Science, the corrupted Editorial Board and publisher of The New York Times declare: “Scientists, especially, are uncomfortable with black-and-white statements, because science is all about nuance. But, in the case of vaccines, there are some hard truths that deserve to be trumpeted. Vaccines are not toxic, and they do not cause autism. Full stop.”
As I have demonstrated here this is categorically not the verdict of science. It is an edict of modern Inquisitors.
Polly Tommey was once deceived by the Times. Most of today’s “anti-vaxxers” were once true believers. They allowed the doctors to vaccinate their children, although they had no idea what was in the vaccines. They trusted the doctors. They became ex-vaxxers because of what they saw happen to their children. But they have never been anti-science.
More now than ever genuine scientists–not those employed by Big Pharma–are confirming the claims of parents of vaccine-injured children. It’s the vaccines that cause autism–in a subset of children who are less resilient. And it’s not just autism– they give many more children less severe chronic illnesses. But vaccine evangelists still want to claim they have the imprimatur of science.
The New York Times claimed in 2005 as it does today, that parents of vaccine-injured children have pitted themselves against science. Kennedy wrote in response that these parents are pitted not against science but against public health authorities who rely not on science but on the reputations of their agencies to exonerate vaccines.
J. B. Handley is an educated layperson who knows his science. Handley is a graduate of Stanford and father of an autistic child—and author of a book on the science of autism praised by leading scientists in the field (Handley, 2018). According to Handley it is the aluminum that causes autism. But although Handley says little about it, before aluminum became the object of attention, critics of vaccines thought it was mercury that caused autism and were able to demonstrate a correlation between mercury in the vaccines and autism. But when mercury was replaced by aluminum autism continued to rise.
Barbara Loe Fisher, a vaccine safety activist and mother of a vaccine injured child stated that “repeated use of multiple vaccines throughout childhood may cause neuroimmune dysfunction [including autism] via a variety of biological mechanisms” (Fisher, 2008, p.95). There are so many toxins in vaccines I do not believe we can put the responsibility on any one chemical. In other words, it is not just the mercury or aluminum that are the critical variables triggering autism–it is all the toxins and how they interact synergistically—and it is at the age at which the vaccines are given.
As Dr. Blaylock writes, “[S]equential, multiple vaccinations in newborns and small children maximizes the inflammation of the brain and as a consequence dramatically enhances the excitotoxic pathology, and does so for prolonged periods (decades). The more vaccines that are added to the vaccine schedule, the more frequently this devastating effect will be seen and in worse forms.” https://www.vaccinationinformationnetwork.com/vaccines-brain-development-and-autism-dr-russell-blaylock-md
Nevertheless, scientific progress has been made in the last few years. Scientists who have studied the issue are convinced that vaccines cause autism in a subset of vulnerable children. In the light of what leading scientists who study toxiocology are saying, it is absurd for The New York Times to say science has determined vaccines are safe. This demonstrates that it has failed to uphold minimal standards of responsible journalism–and become little more than an organ of State and corporate propaganda. To reiterate, The Times had declared: “Vaccines are not toxic, and they do not cause autism.” The dirty secret is that it is not the anti-vaxxers who are “anti-science”–it is The New York Times and the mainstream press.
We know now that the brains of autistic children and adults are in a state of permanent inflammation, and there are unusually high concentrations of aluminum in the brains of autistics. Blaylock notes that in a study done in 2005 (Vargas et al study) researchers examined the brains of 11 autistics from age 5 years to 44 years of age who had died without active infectious diseases as compared to age-matched controls. “That is, they found widespread activation of inflammatory cells (microglia and astrocytes) in the brains of the autistic patients.” https://www.vaccinationinformationnetwork.com/vaccines-brain-development-and-autism-dr-russell-blaylock-md
Chris Exley, “the world’s leading expert on aluminum neurotoxicity,” found in his famous 2017 study that autistics’ brain were loaded with aluminum: “My group has measured the aluminum content of probably more than one hundred human brains, and these brain tissues taken from the individuals with a diagnosis of autism were some of the highest we’ve measured bar none.” https://jbhandleyblog.com/home/2018/4/1/international2018
Handley explains that this discovery combined with the discovery that autistic brains are in a state of constant inflammation is the key to understanding autism. Handley says the brain’s immune system is in a constant battle with the aluminum that it doesn’t know how to get out of its body (p. 154). Handley notes his son was born in 2002: “He seemed to get sicker with every vaccine appointment and his head was always hurting.” (p.162) Inflammation would lead to a large brain and a swollen forehead. “Is that why children with autism are known to head bang?” (p.162). “We have new credible biological science showing us we are deliberately damaging our babies, and likely creating the autism epidemic” (p162).
The Scientists Talk Back to CDC
The FDA claims that aluminum is safe, a claim of course accepted by the CDC. But what have our regulatory agencies been relying upon to assess the safety of injected aluminum? One single study published in 2011 by Dr. Robert J. Mitkus in the journal Vaccine. Mitkus concluded that “for infants, our study demonstrates that there is little risk for aluminum toxicity following immunizations administered according to ACIP[CDC] recommendations even with maximal exposures to aluminum adjuvant.” (https://vaccinepapers.org/wp-content/uploads/FDA-aluminum-paper.pdf)
As Handley notes, “In no other drug on the planet (except vaccines) would safety standards be determined without using the actual product (aluminum hydroxide) administered in proper way (intramuscular injection) into proper population (infants).” (Handley, 2018, p.156) Handley quotes a scientist- critic: “Why do the vaccine promoters rely on oral-ingestion studies to defend Al adjuvant safety? It is because they have no experimental research showing that injecting Al adjuvant is safe! They are empty-handed” ( p156-7).
But CDC did not go unanswered. In Canada, France and England scientists who cared about children had been investigating on their own the toxicity of vaccines. In 2017 three of the leading toxicologists in the world got together and decided to jointly write letters to the three organizations supposedly protecting public health–the CDC, FDA and NIH. They obviously consulted each other since their letters were almost identical.
Dr. Christopher Shaw of the University of British Columbia wrote that the studies he did and “the broader existing literature regarding aluminum toxicity lead almost invariably to the conclusion that aluminum in any form is always neurotoxic.” In vaccines “they [adjuvants] may contribute to neurological disorders across the lifespan….In children there is growing evidence that aluminum adjuvants may disrupt developmental processes in the central nervous system and therefore contribute to ASD [autism spectrum disorder] in susceptible children.” He concluded: “In regard to the above it is my belief that CDC’s claim on its website that ‘Vaccines Do Not Cause Autism’ is wholly unsupported.” (Handley, 2018, p.166)
Dr. Chris Exley, a tenured professor at Keele University of Bioinorganic Chemistry and according to Handley, “without peer the leading expert in the world on the neurotoxicity of aluminum” described himself in his letter as “an expert in field of aluminum adjuvants and aluminum toxicity for 30 years during which time I have written in excess of 150 peer reviewed scientific publications.” He continued, “I strongly support the contention that aluminum adjuvants may have a role in the etiology of autism spectrum disorder.” His view is founded on “a scientific and burgeoning body of peer reviewed scientific evidence…The claim of CDC’s website that vaccines do not cause autism is unsupported with respect to aluminum adjuvants and this view stifles important research to determine the safety of aluminum adjuvants used in vaccines.” (Ibid, p.166)
Dr. Romain Gherardi of Universite Paris-Est is an expert in the field of aluminum adjuvant toxicity who has written 40 peer reviewed scientific publications and 1 book on the topic. He wrote, “I strongly support the contention that aluminum adjuvants may have a role in the etiology of autism spectrum disorder.” His view is founded on “a scientific and burgeoning body of peer reviewed scientific evidence.” “The claim of CDC’s website that vaccines do not cause autism is unsupported with respect to aluminum adjuvants…”(p.166)
Thus we see that the public perception shamelessly promoted by the press that vaccines are safe is contested by some of the leading toxicologists in the world. But they are not alone. Even the government’s own experts are now speaking out and contradicting CDC.
Andrew Zimmerman, MD and Richard Kelley, MD are “the two leading mainstream autism scientists in the world” (Handley, 2018, p.170). They were both key witnesses for many years for the government in the Vaccine Court. They were the experts who disputed parents’ claims that vaccines caused their children’s autism–until both of them changed their positions and concluded vaccines caused autism in a subset of children–25-40% of the autistic children, according to Kelley. Zimmerman’s testimony had helped deny the claims of over 5,000 children. Dr Zimmerman was the former director of medical research at the Kennedy Krieger Institute at Johns Hopkins University. Kelley was Professor of Pediatrics at Johns Hopkins University (Ibid,p.170).
In 2008 as a result of his friendship with a colleague who had an autistic daughter, Zimmerman changed his mind. He testified to the Vaccine Court that vaccines caused Hannah Poling’s autism (Handley, p.178). Hannah’s case was settled in her favor with a gag order on the family in 2007 (p.180). This was the end of Zimmerman’s career as a witness for the government in Vaccine Court (p.182).
In 2006 Zimmerman had co-authored with Jon Poling MD an essay about Hannah titled “Developmental Regression and Mitochondrial Dysfunction in a Child with Autism” in the The Journal of Child Neurology (Handley, 2018, p.179). But Hannah was not a singular case–the author had reevaluated the records of all the other patients with autism at Kennedy Krieger Institute and concluded that children with “mitochondrial dysfunction” (which he assumed was genetic) are more likely to become autistic between 18- 30 months if they are vaccinated (Handley, p.179).
In 2016 both Dr. Zimmerman and Dr. Richard Kelley testified in legal depositions in favor of Yates Hazlehurst whose parents claimed he had incurred autism as a result of his sensitivity to repeated vaccinations. Dr. Zimmerman testified that “people who work in the field of autism commonly see a relationship between infection, inflammation and the onset of [autistic]regression” (p195). In other words, inflammation triggered by vaccines leads to autism in susceptible populations. Kelley placed the percentage at 25- 40%.
Kelley acknowledged that he was now arguing for a link between vaccines and autism. The lawyer upon cross-examination inquired “Your opinion is contrary to.. the opinion of the CDC, correct?” Dr. Kelley responded: “It is contrary to their conclusion. It is not contrary to their data” (Handley, p. 199). Kelley could not be more blunt. In other words, As Handley notes: The data shows that vaccines cause autism but CDC does not admit this. This was testimony by 2 men who had been government witnesses for many years.
This testimony was given 3 years before The New York Times wrote that science had concluded “Vaccines are not toxic, and they do not cause autism. Full stop”. The editors of The Times had urged state and federal officials to launch an “aggressive and targeted social media campaign” of surveillance; to “monitor anti-vaccine websites” in order to defeat “the enemy” (See above.) Now it is over a year since the New York Times declared war. A censorship campaign has been launched on Youtube, Facebook, Google — at the behest of our government.
In March, U.S. Congressman Adam Schiff wrote to urge CEOs of Amazon, Facebook, and Google, to censor and delete content that raises doubt about vaccine safety. Other social media and internet giants followed suit including: YouTube, GoFundMe, Twitter, Instagram, Wikipedia, Pinterest, Etsy, and Mail Chimp. In 2019, news outlets such as Huffington Post have also removed dozens of articles about vaccine safety from their website. The press and the politicians are doing the bidding of Big Pharma at the expense of the 1st Amendment (https://ahrp.org/beware-of-medicine-marching-in-lockstep-with-government-personal-reflections)
Vera Sharav, Holocaust survivor and president of Alliance for Human Research Protection, writes that “these industry-funded pro-vaccine collaborators in government, the media, and academia” will not have an open public discussions about vaccines. I would add that Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is not even allowed on any television station. As Vera Sharav writes, “They won’t engage in public debate because their science is rigged, it can’t stand up to independent scrutiny…Caught in a web of deceptions, vaccine stakeholders are resorting to strong-arm police tactics to silence once and for all, those who challenge them. What is at issue globally is the human right to conscientious objection to medical interventions; freedom of choice and freedom of speech — a very dangerous combination.” (https://ahrp.org/beware-of-medicine-marching-in-lockstep-with-government-personal-reflections/)
