Examiner: “Whistleblower reveals CDC cover-up linking MMR vaccine to autism”

Sep 02

…But the CDC doesn’t “convey the risks associated with the receipt of those vaccines” and that is the ultimate malfeasance, yet they get away with it.
And yes, Dr. Julie Gerberding, before she went to work for Merck, admitted vaccines can cause autism, but chose to do nothing about it.
And now, Dr. Frank DeStefano admitted that vaccines can cause autism, but he’s not interested in doing anything about it either.

Thompson stated he believes it is ‘the responsibility of the CDC to properly convey the risks associated with the receipt of those vaccines’

ATLANTA – On Aug. 27, Attorney Frederick M. Morgan, Jr. of Morgan Verkamp LLC issued a press release with a statement by William W. Thompson, Ph.D., a senior scientist with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), where Thompson has worked since 1998.

Thompson inadvertently became a whistleblower when discussing information about an article examining the possibility of a relationship between MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) vaccine and autism.

According to Thompson, he and his coauthors “omitted statistically significant information” in a 2004 article they published in the journal Pediatrics.

Thompson stated, “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.”

Clarifying his firm belief that vaccinations have and continue to save countless lives and he would never suggest any parent avoid vaccinating their children, Thompson said his concern was the “decision to omit relevant findings in a particular study for a particular sub group for a particular vaccine.”

While there are recognized risks associated with all vaccinations, Thompson stated he believes it is “the responsibility of the CDC to properly convey the risks associated with the receipt of those vaccines.”

It appears the CDC was aware there was a risk of autism in connection with MMR vaccines as early as 2002, but chose to suppress that information from being made public….

While the carefully crafted statement released by Morgan sounds open and honest, e-mails reveal Thompson admitted CDC scientists were trying to decide which documents to provide the Department of Justice (DOJ) and which to hold back in response to the DOJ’s request for documents associated with MMR. Thimerosal and autism.

While performing a full analysis of the CDC’s own data, Hooker revealed in a published paper there was a 340 percent increased risk of autism in African American children after receiving the MMR vaccine.

Back in 2008, Julie Gerberding, M.D., while head of the CDC, issued a statement after a U.S. District Court compensated a little girl who developed autism after receiving nine vaccinations on the same day.

Gerberding, who is currently president of Merk’s vaccine division, indicated any vaccine can cause autism and stated, on national television “Now, we all know that vaccines can occasionally cause fevers in kids. So if a child was immunized, got a fever, had other complications from the vaccines . And if you’re predisposed with the mitochondrial disorder, it can certainly set off some damage. Some of the symptoms can be symptoms that have characteristics of autism.”

So, knowing vaccines can cause symptoms such as autistic behavior, autism or seizures in children, Gerberding, who was in a position to do something about it, as director for the CDC, instead left the CDC to work for the vaccine manufacturer.

Meanwhile, in a report released in March of this year, the CDC stated one in 68 U.S. children has an autism spectrum disorder, a 30 percent increase from two years ago, when it was one in 88 children.

Maine Voices: Breakdown in accountability at heart of decline in vaccinations

Sep 02

This commentary in the Portland Press Herald today was by truly dedicated autism mom, Ginger Taylor.

Maine Voices: Breakdown in accountability at heart of decline in vaccinations

Opposition to the current U.S. vaccination program is based on its failures, denial and bad law and policy.

I was interviewed for an Aug. 9 front-page article by Joe Lawlor, titled “More Maine families are skipping or delaying childhood vaccines.” What was published was a complete misrepresentation of the interview I gave him.As I told Mr. Lawlor, I’m neither anti-vaccine nor opposed to vaccination, and I vaccinated my children. My opposition is to the current U.S. vaccine program, which has become corrupted by bad law and policy, the failure to disclose known risks to families, the failure to pre-screen children who are showing symptoms that they are at risk for vaccine reactions and the denial of vaccine injury cases – rather than the proper recognition, diagnoses and treatment of vaccine-injured children.

In 1986, Congress gave liability protection to all vaccine interests – pharmaceutical companies, government agencies, doctors, nurses, etc. – so no one in this country can sue for vaccine injuries or deaths. As a result of this disregard of Americans’ Seventh Amendment rights, a vaccine injury case hasn’t been brought before a jury in almost 30 years, there is no longer accountability in vaccine safety and the vaccine program has fallen into massive corruption….

Case in point: The claim that the vaccine-autism controversy began as the result of one debunked study is utter misinformation. In fact, more than 80 research papers demonstrate the associations between vaccines and autism, and the mechanisms by which vaccines can cause autism….

Because few doctors have ever read the federal vaccine injury table, children exhibiting symptoms of vaccine-induced brain damage are often diagnosed with “autism” without ever being evaluated for this vaccine reaction.

NBC NEWS: “Desperate Act: Mom on Trial After Attempt to Kill Autistic Daughter”

Sep 02

Why did NBC feel it was necessary to cite the hate comments on that Autism Speaks allowed on their website? 
NBC didn’t miss the opportunity to include the video of Nancy Snyderman talking about the increase with Coleen Boyle from the CDC who’s been covering up the truth about autism for years.
Here she tells us about all the better diagnosing going on.  Snyderman calls for early diagnosing…it makes all the difference.  Learn the signs.
Desperate Act: Mom on Trial After Attempt to Kill Autistic Daughter

Michigan man whose ex-wife is accused of trying to kill their severely autistic daughter says he’s bracing for the trial that will reveal the depths of desperation that his family – and others – face every day.

“I’ll never condone what she did,” said Matt Stapleton, 42, a high school principal and father of three from Elberta, Michigan. “She will be judged and I’m sure they will look at what happened September 3rd and everything that put her in the position where she didn’t think there were any other options.”

Kelli Stapleton, 46, a once-prominent autism advocate and blogger, is set for trial on Wednesday, a year to the day after she allegedly shut herself and her 15-year-old daughter, Isabelle – nicknamed Issy – in a closed van and lit two charcoal barbecue grills.

She and Issy were discovered unconscious from carbon monoxide poisoning after the failed murder-suicide attempt ,police said. The child remained in a coma for days but has recovered; Kelli Stapleton went to jail and now faces a maximum life sentence.

Critics excoriated Kelli Stapleton for allegedly attempting to murder her own child. Comments on the website for Autism Speaks, an advocacy agency, compared the mother to Hitler, who wanted to purge society of disability. Others said she should be tried on hate crimes charges for targeting someone with autism.

“If you had autism, how’d you like your mother to decide that you shouldn’t live anymore?” one commenter wrote.

“Your child is your child. DEAL WITH IT, life is not about coasting, it is about rising,” another wrote.

“If you had autism, how’d you like your mother to decide that you shouldn’t live anymore?”

But Matt Stapleton said the situation is not so clear-cut. Families coping with the violence, aggression and destruction that come with daily care of severely autistic kids like Issy need services and support to ensure that similar tragedies don’t happen, he said.

“People just don’t wake up one morning and say I’m going to take my kid in a van and kill her with carbon monoxide poisoning,” Stapleton said, adding: “I know what my wife has been through for the last 13 years since Issy’s diagnosis. It would appear to me Kelli was not in the right frame of mind. It is not rational to decide to take the life of your child.”

About 1 in every 68 children in the United States is diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder, or ASD, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. A 2013 study of reports from parents suggested that the prevalence might be as high as 1 in 50 children.

ASD is a set of complex neurodevelopment disorders that can range from very mild to severe. About 7 percent of children are severely affected, the CDC study reported. Among those children, aggressive and destructive behaviors

CNN iReport: Hear This Well, Elizabeth Cohen

Autism Parents Respond to Health Correspondent – CNN iReport

On Wednesday, August 27, 2014, Centers for Disease Control Senior Scientist Dr. Bill Thompson issued a statement through his attorney’s website addressing his regret that he and his co-authors omitted “statistically significant information” in a 2004 study on the subject of whether the MMR vaccine was causing autism in children.

Later that night CNN reporter Deborah Goldschmidt published an article which focused on the paper written by Dr. Brian Hooker that reanalyzed the CDC data, which has since been pulled from the internet under pressure from an outside agency.

Embedded in the top of that CNN piece was a video from earlier in 2014 where health correspondent Elizabeth Cohen states that within all of the dangerous side-effects of vaccines, autism is not listed. She then rephrased for those needing help understanding her, explaining that “Some people don’t hear this well: vaccines do not cause autism.”

Outraged that CNN would choose to embed such a statement within Dr. Thompson’s confession that he and his co-authors had omitted evidence that African American males were at increased risk for autism from journal publication, autism parents across the country and across the globe responded to a call from the Autism Media Channel. These parents addressed the CNN correspondent directly, informing her that in their own families, vaccines had, in fact, caused autism before their very eyes.

Hear This Well: Parent Videos Breaking The Silence on Vaccine Violence – AGE OF AUTISM

Media vs Moms…  CNN’s Elizabeth Cohen may think saying “vaccines don’t cause autism” will make it true, but it’s a lie.  It’s been shown to be a lie over and over. 
 
 

Miami healthy living | Examiner.com: CDC denies autistic children a voice, parents demand they be heard

Sep 01

I can’t even count how many “hear me well” videos I’ve watched on my Facebook.  Of course officials at the CDC know vaccines cause autism.  They’ve known it for years.  They’ve covered up the truth and continually lied about it.  What else would you expect from the people who run the vaccine program and are hopelessly tied to the industry they’re supposed to regulate?  It’s just amazing that we keep asking them if their vaccines are harming kids.

CNN’s Elizabeth Cohen recently made a televised statement saying that,”some people don’t hear this well- vaccines do not cause autism,” and, in response, parents who believe that their child suffers from vaccine-induced autism or another sort of vaccine injury are posting moving videos on social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube. Just yesterday on her video post, one mom wrote, “This is a response to Elizabeth Cohen who was on CNN claiming that there are some parents that don’t “hear it well” that vaccines don’t cause autism. Meanwhile…William Thompson, a lead researcher at the CDC, has come out and stated that they cooked the numbers. They have known the truth for years…and they hid it. The only ones that aren’t “hearing well”…are the ones who refuse to listen to the parents and the wonderful physicians and reseacherswho are SCREAMING that there is a problem. Total media blackout…why? Because they think you will all stop vaccinating right now if you know the truth. They don’t think you are smart enough to READ and decide for yourself. Well…that and because they (the media) have been told not to cover the story.”

The Greater Good on the whistleblower…

Sep 01

Leslie Manookian summarized things perfectly here.  News outlets have given us two decades of phony coverage on autsim/vaccines and autism.  Newspaper and network reporters never go beyond press releases from health officials.  CNN and the New York Times have just as much at stake here as the folks at the CDC.
 
They’re desperately looking to cover this up too.

As you all probably know by now, a CDC whistleblower has come forward and said that he and other CDC scientists and officials knowingly and willfully covered up the MMR-autism link for 13 years. The original paper was published in Pediatrics, a publication of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP). The AAP takes money from the vaccine-making pharmaceutical industry. It is truly staggering that this is not being covered at all by the mainstream.

For nearly 2 weeks now only the independent media has been following the story of CDC whistleblower Dr. Bill Thompson. To hear the phone calls: CDC Whistleblower revealed  To read Dr. Thompson’s statement: Public statement by William Thompson, Ph. D. …

Dr. Thompson has gone on to say that he is confident thimerosal (mercury in vaccines, though there is none in MMR vaccines) is a danger to unborn babies, should not be given to pregnant women, causes tics, and autism-like features (aka autism)….

So far, the mainstream media, had not covered a single detail of this – until Dr. Hooker’s paper was removed from the journal’s website. CNN even went so far as to take down, repeatedly, the CDC whistleblower story as it was posted by readers on the CNNi bulletin board.

Then on Thursday August 28th, both CNN and Fox Seattle ran stories that Dr. Hooker’s paper had been removed and Fox went so far as to say it is invalid.

The mainstream media has not said a word about the alleged fraud and criminal behavior at CDC, the faked MMR-autism numbers, the very high increased risk of autism in African American boys, the link between mercury, tics, and yes, autism. They have said nothing about Dr. Thompson’s allegations and admissions, all they’ve done is focus on a journal removing a paper they published 3 weeks before and goodness knows what went on behind the scenes to make that happen.

They have not interviewed Dr. Hooker or Dr. Thompson, the two most important men at the center of this shocking revelation, instead they wheel out the CDC statement and their go to experts – one who is a co-author on the CDC study and is accused of fraud –  and broadcast the message we are all supposed to receive: everything is fine. They have not questioned the original CDC paper which Dr. Thompson says was a fraud and unsurprisingly, the AAP stands by the paper.

But the jig is up. Too much information is out there already and too many moms and dads can see the plain truth for themselves: the mainstream and the “experts” cannot be trusted.

 

Beth Clay : “When You Know You Are Being Lied To”.. – AGE OF AUTISM

Sep 01

The Age of Autism article at the bottom of this is written by Beth Clay.  She said, I was the staff lead on the original House Oversight Committee’s investigation looking into concerns about vaccine injuries.”
And she was lied to.

This to me is so critical.  When the whistleblower story broke, my first thought was: “Wait a minute.  This is the same agency ( the FDA and NIMH) that sent lots of people to Washington to testify before Rep. Dan Burton’s committee and they assured him all the science was in on vaccines and autism.  They also testified when Rep Darrell Issa was chairman.  They testified before Rep Bill Posey and Rep. Dave Weldon at these hearings. 
Is that a perk of being a U.S. health official?  You’re allowed to come before a congressional hearing and spin whatever pseudo-science that you want and get away with it?  Is Congress that powerless to undercover the truth and hold people accountable?
 Someone should be looking into this.  Here is some of what’s gone on.  I’m sure there’s more. 
Dr. Coleen Boyle (CDC) testified.
Dr. Stephen Foote (NIMH) testified.
Dan Burton: “My grandchild was a normal child, and two days after he got nine shots in one day, several of which contained thimerosal–mercury–forty some times the amount that was tolerable in an adult, he started acting exactly like this child [in the video].”
 Dr. Karen Midthun, FDA Office of Vaccine Research and Review reported on the removal of mercury-containing vaccines.
2004 Rep. Dan Burton questioned acting FDA Director William Egan about thimerosal.
Congressman Dan Burton (CDB) : Mr Egan, has Thimerosal ever been tested by a health agency?
William Egan (WE) : (Clearly uncomfortable) Aaah. Its been early, in the world(slurring), those early tests that you know of, uh. that were done by, ahhhh. Eli Lily.
CDB (Interrupting) : And when was that tested? It was done in 1929.
WE : Yes
CDB (Continuing) : And lets just follow up on that. In 1929, they tested this on 27 people who were dying of meningitis . And all of them died of meningitis. And so they said, there was no correlation between their deaths, and the mercury in the vaccines. That is the only test that has ever been done on Thimerosal, that I know of. Do you know any other?
WE : No, in people , no. Except for accidental exposures over the–
CDB  (Again, interrupting) : So we have mercury that has been put into people’s bodies ,and has been since the thirties, and it has never been tested by our health agencies. And yet, you folks come here , and you testify that there is no ‘conclusive evidence’ (emphasises here) and the IOM(*) says they favor, – get this – they don’t say they are sure, they say they favor rejection of a causal relationship between Mercury and Autism and other neurological disorders.
Mr Egan, can you tell me right now that that amount of Mercury injected into a baby will not hurt it?
 
Rep. Darryl Issa chaired this meeting.
CDC representative Dr. Coleen Boyle testifed.
In most people’s thinking, the agency that gets BILLIONS TO RUN HEALTH CARE would surely tell us the truth.  That’s the reason we have a CDC, right?  What if their first priority is promoting pharma’s products, not protecting the health of Americans?  What if all the conflicts of interest mean they’re really working for the people they’re supposed to be regulating?
I really want to hear what retired Congressmen Dan Burton and Dave Weldon have to say about this.  What about sitting Congressmen Bill Posey and Darrell Issa?
The lead author on the CDC MMR story was Dr. Frank De Stefano.  He believes autism starts in the womb.  One might ask why he was even looking at the MMR as being related to autism.  Maybe he should explain what really happened to Dan Burton’s grandson.  Burton describes the boys sudden and rapid descent into autism after receiving nine vaccines in a single doctor’s visit.
 
By Beth Clay While mainstream media have ignored the flurry the past two weeks after the Focus Autism Press Release, the Peer Reviewed Research paper by Brian Hooker, PhD, and the Autism Media Video, several online media outlets and social media have been a blaze with the news of a CDC employee reaching out to Dr. Hooker and coming clean about what I consider a well-orchestrated cover up of information about increased risks associated with vaccines. Specifically the timing of certain vaccines, the use of thimerosal in vaccines, and what is known about risks of brain injury from vaccines in general. Those who led this activity showed significant malfeasance and disregard for the health and well-being of children. They have violated the public trust and have dragged this entire controversy out for 15 years rather than address with integrity and openness the issue and move forward with solutions that improve the safety of vaccines and respect the individual person’s unique medical condition and rights to personal medical choice. I am not part of this conversation because I have a child that was vaccine injured and became autistic. I was the staff lead on the original House Oversight Committee’s investigation looking into concerns about vaccine injuries. The year was 1999. Two of our Subcommittees has been looking at different topics. Chairman Shays had taken on the reports of anthrax vaccine injures in the military and Chairman Mica had taken on a review of the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) and as part of that looked a bit into the Hepatitis B vaccine. I well remember meeting Mrs. Betty Fluke from Indiana who testified before the subcommittee about her experience both in the VICP and in getting access to the only treatments that might offer her relief. She had prior to the vaccine been a vibrant healthy woman – wife and mother- who when I met her wore leg braces and walked with crutches.

When we talk about the VICP, we typically think and talk about babies being injured, however; like more than half of the individuals who file claims in the VICP program, she was an injured adult. Chairman Dan Burton elevated the issues up to the full committee and expanded the investigation. We initially were not looking at autism. Chairman Burton often times paraphrased a quote from Abraham Lincoln: “I am a firm believer in the people. If given the truth, they can be depended upon to meet any national crisis. The great point is to bring them the real facts.” In all of our work on the Committee, we were looking for the truth. When it came to vaccines, while we were accused of being ‘anti-vaccine’, which was an absurd claim. We – both Chairman Burton and myself in truth were and are ‘pro vaccine-safety’. We worked from the knowledge that vaccines hold a unique place in medicine in this country. They are the only drugs that are mandated by a government (states) as a condition of participation in schools, day cares, and some jobs (health care, school personnel, first responder, etc.) based on recommendations of the federal government (CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP). Because the government is abridging the freedom of Americans with these vaccine mandates, I anticipated that because it was a group of drugs that almost every American would receive, that the bar on approval -the safety requirements for approval would be elevated. Imagine my surprise and disgust to find just the opposite. There seemed to be a rush to get something approved and in the market place so that manufacturers could make their investment back. (Yes that was a discussion in one of the advisory meetings!) Both the FDA and the CDC Advisory committee membership were replete with conflicts of interest that were either ignored or waived – meaning that individuals participating in the approval process of drugs or their recommendations for inclusion on the recommended schedule (to be mandated by the states), had financial ties to the makers of vaccines. The CDC was so lax in its management of their advisory committee that they simply granted everyone a waiver ‘whether they needed it or not’. 

 

 

 

 

**INFO WARS VIDEO: “Mainstream Media Buries CDC Scientist’s Confession About Vaccines & Autism”

Sep 01

Nice to see someone saying this.   The discussion turned to MEDIA WHISTLEBLOWER COVERAGE.
In the past, a lot of things should have gotten extensive media coverage–but didn’t.
2008, Dr. Bernadine Healy, former NIH head saying that the science wasn’t in on vaccine and autism because no one has ever looked at regressive autism.
2008, The announcement that Hannah Poling, a young Georgia girl, had her vaccine injury case conceded and compensated by the federal government. 
2011, The announcement that researchers had uncovered 83 cases of vaccine injury that included autism compensated by the federal government.
 
So now in 2014, will revelation that CDC officials faked the MMR study results get the attention of the press?
Based on past experience, most likely not.
I’m sure they’re desperately waiting for the CDC’s “official explanation” to be faithfully covered by CNN, ABC, et al. 
That’s what they did with Hannah Poling.  She became the one in a billion exception.  No other child in the human race had her “underlying medical condition.”
They’re so used to writing what they’re told, no questions asked, that it’s the only option.
 

Whistleblower starts at 8:30 on video
Greenmedinfo.com’s Sayer Ji talks about the scandal at the CDC.
“What we’re seeing is a global conspicuous silence on the topic of the topic of this top level CDC scientist …”
“There’s a race issue here that’s not even being addressed. …”
“It’s so clearly a larger issue than just one vaccine maybe raising the risk in black boys for autism.  This is a whole house of cards falling down….”
“This should be all over the mainstream media.  There’s not a single mainstream media including the CNN report that came out last night about the journal retraction.”
