Editor’s Note: This is the second of a two-part series. The previous article examined the statistics surrounding autism. In this installment, the lie that the science is settled may finally be put to rest.
Vaccines are perfectly safe, and all those anti-vaxxers are conspiracy theorists whose kids are in danger. That’s the message pushed by the press – but if it’s true, why would there be a federally established VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System) and a little-known federal Vaccine Court established to pay out claims of vaccine injury and death?
In 2018, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. of Children’s Health Defense and Del Bigtree of ICAN (Informed Consent Action Network) sued the Departments of Health and Human Services and the CDC to compel them to show evidence of having consistently and routinely tested vaccines for safety – as per their lawful responsibility with which they were expressly charged in the NCVIA of 1988.
The plaintiffs won – and proved that the government agencies charged with testing the safety of the vaccines the CDC insists our children get have never done so – a massive dereliction of duty for more than 30 years.
This cannot be lowercased. For over a quarter-century, our government has failed to test for safety the 54 doses of vaccines they compel our children to take, holding hostage – in many states – the right to attend public school. And the United States government conceded its shocking and unconscionable failure of duty in a court of law in 2018.
But the plaintiffs weren’t done yet. An ICAN press release states that the CDC admitted after being sued in federal court that it had no studies to prove that these vaccines don’t cause autism. This bombshell for the ages comes after years of being told that “the science is settled – vaccines don’t cause autism” again and again as part of a sustained media campaign to control the narrative. The government cannot say vaccines don’t cause autism if it can’t provide proof of this assertion.
And the need for vaccine safety – the duty to which our government abdicated, as proven in court – is self-evident in the very fact that pharmaceutical manufacturers sought and received full indemnity for vaccine death and injury. There is no need for federal immunity from a “safe” product. That the Vaccine Court, which pays out claims to those killed or maimed by vaccines, even exists in the first place is further proof that “safe and effective” is more of a PR slogan than hard truth.
For many children, vaccines are not safe. This is now officially conceded and acknowledged by the federal government – which, in a grim twist, still somehow unaccountably mandates that our kids get the full battery of CDC recommended immunizations. These same mandates may well apply to everyone worldwide, including adults unvaccinated since youth, once the Coronavirus vaccine is formulated at “warp speed.” And the same indemnity for vaccine injury and death is already afforded all manufacturers of this imminent miracle jab – including vaccine industrialist Bill Gates.
Many Americans are completely oblivious to this – and that’s by design. The institutions of the Fourth Estate charged with reporting this information won’t cross Big Pharma, the most powerful lobby in Washington DC. Pharma outspends Big Oil and Gas four to one and pays for close to 70% of all advertising revenues in news, even as it spends 30 billion a year on medical marketing to doctors and health care professionals. As a result, for the media to greenlight any reporting that associates increases in autism worldwide with vaccines would be akin to issuing a press release that a certain brand of trucks are associated with brake failure while employed by that company – a questionable strategy at best for professional success.
The 24-hour news cycle has been grooming the public for years to accept that autism is just a normal part of American life. And the Pavlovian response of the media as to why there are so many children with autism when it was vanishingly rare just decades ago is that it’s the result of “better diagnosing.”
Even if this were true (and it may be in some cases) you’d have to accept that a sudden and dramatic sea change occurred in the training of doctors, psychologists, and regional center personnel in the last decade and a half – it would be impossible for a 300% increase to result. Where were all those students hiding for the last 100 years?
The “scientific” hedge is that all autism is genetic – but this seems unlikely as genes take roughly a million years to mutate, and as Dr. Boyd Haley states, “it is statistically impossible to have a genetic epidemic in such a short period of time.” Even so, the lion’s share of all funding goes toward this genetic research – a Titanic-like pursuit doomed to failure that functions as an elaborate diversion designed to draw attention away from the elephant in the room: childhood immunizations.
Were the government bodies charged with protecting our children ever to admit that the Great Autism Gene Hunt is a race to nowhere, they would have to focus instead on possible environmental factors, including mercury from burning coal, aluminum (present as an adjuvant in vaccines and in many household products like deodorant), air pollution, pesticides like as glyphosate, and the CDC vaccine schedule. Don’t hold your breath.
If this were a court case – failing the definitive answer a vaccinated vs. unvaccinated study would provide – the preponderance of circumstantial evidence would be highly compelling.
In 2010, The Vaccine Court settled with the family of Hannah Poling, admitting that vaccines had “resulted” in her autism. Hannah had a mitochondrial disorder that is most often referred to as rare – although we have no idea how many children suffer from this confounder that may well be the trigger that fires the autism bullet for some susceptible children.
Hannah’s case was one of three representative test cases chosen for the Omnibus Autism Proceedings – a class action suit in the Vaccine Court back when the millennium was new. When her case yielded the dread result that her autism was a result of a vaccine injury, her case was settled, quietly removed from the Omnibus, and sealed.
The class-action suit was decided in favor of the government, as “no link” was determined. The many families who petitioned went home with neither a settlement nor an admission that vaccines had harmed the 5,400 children represented in the case in any way.
At the time, CDC head Julie Gerberding admitted to Sanjay Gupta on TV that vaccines could trigger autism in those with a mitochondrial dysfunction – then never again said any such thing. She was later given the job of President of the Vaccine Division at Merk Pharmaceutical, a company that was found criminally negligent for its drug, Vioxx. Was this mere coincidence – or payment for her silence?
Back in 2007, Dr. Andrew Zimmerman helped the government and pharmaceutical industry defeat vaccine-autism claims in the Vaccine Court. However, he now says he subsequently learned that vaccines can, in fact, cause autism in certain susceptible children. He told the government over a decade ago –but his opinion wasn’t accurately conveyed to the Vaccine Court. According to investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. has filed a fraud complaint against lawyers from the Department of Justice for this astonishing cover-up.
While there are no large-scale studies that have proven a vaccine-autism link, a recent peer-reviewed study found that vaccinated children were at a 4.2% increased risk for autism – as well as a 4.2% increased risk for ADHD, a 5.2% increased risk for learning disabilities, and a staggering 30-fold risk for allergies.
And in 2014, CDC Whistleblower Dr. William Thompson made the following statement through his lawyer:
“My name is William Thompson. I am a Senior Scientist with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, where I have worked since 1998. I regret that my coauthors and I omitted statistically significant information in our 2004 article published in the journal Pediatrics. The omitted data suggested that African American males who received the MMR vaccine before age 36 months were at increased risk for autism. Decisions were made regarding which findings to report after the data were collected, and I believe that the final study protocol was not followed.”
In a passionate speech to his fellow members of Congress, Representative Bill Posey (R-FL) urged his colleagues to compel William Thompson to testify in front of the government body about his claims of corruption and a cover-up at the CDC of an alleged vaccine-autism connection.
The CDC blocked his testimony.
The CDC named AIDS an epidemic. It labeled deaths from opiates an epidemic. It has also called the incidence of typhus an epidemic. But the CDC doesn’t want to call the startling increases in autism an epidemic because then it would have to address a problem it isn’t able to fix without admitting its failure to safety test vaccines to safeguard our children’s health.
And the CDC – which owns more than 20 vaccine patents and purchases and sells $4.1 billion in vaccines annually according to Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. – would also risk discovery of its alleged efforts to cover up a vaccine-autism connection – a revelation that, if true, would land like an atomic bomb on the landscape of American life.
Beware the media drumbeat that the “science is settled” on this issue. As Dr. William Thompson, the CDC Whistleblower asserts:
“The CDC has put the research ten years behind. Because the CDC has not been transparent, we’ve missed ten years of research because the CDC is so paralyzed right now by anything related to autism.”
In 2014, MIT computer scientist, Dr. Stephanie Seneff crunched the numbers. She predicted that if the astounding increases in autism continued, 50% of all children in America would have autism by the year 2025. Tragically, the escalating numbers of children being diagnosed with autism every day in America suggest we are on course to realizing this devastating prediction.
The blithe, media-prescribed attitudes toward this imminent catastrophe are held by many – particularly at a time when we are distracted and besieged by roiling political divisions, protests, and a pandemic. But the lifelong struggles and back-breaking costs will not only be carried by families who have children with autism. The massive costs of this coming cataclysm have the potential to collapse our health care and social safety nets.
And that will be a burden borne by us all.
