I write this story now to remind people there are several titanic unresolved issues surrounding research fraud at the CDC, involving the MMR vaccine.
We all know about CDC whistleblower William Thompson, a long-time researcher at the CDC. Thompson still works there.
Thompson confessed he and his CDC co-authors cooked the data in a key 2004 study, thereby exonerating the MMR vaccine from any blame in causing autism.
Thompson has never been subpoenaed by Congress to confess what he knows about this case.
But what about Stephen Kraling and Joan Wlochowski?
They’re two former Merck virologists who filed a qui tam suit against Merck, the manufacturer of the very same MMR vaccine. (Ref: Federal Civil Lawsuit: UNITED STATES OF AMERICA et al. v. MERCK & CO., Pennsylvania Eastern District Court, Case No. 2:10-cv-04374-CDJ, District Judge C. DARNELL JONES, II, presiding)
The suit claims Merck defrauded the US government by selling the vaccine, under a federal contract, when Merck knew the mumps component of the vaccine was far less effective than advertised.
Of course, Merck disputed this claim, but on September 5th, 2014, Judge Jones, of the Federal District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, gave the green light for the suit to move forward.
Kraling and Wlochowski assert several levels of Merck fraud:
To achieve a slam-dunk success, Merck tested the effectiveness of the MMR vaccine against the version of the virus in the vaccine, rather than against the natural mumps virus a person would catch in the real world.
Merck irrelevantly and deceptively added animal antibodies to the test results, thus giving the false appearance of strong human immune response to the vaccine.
On top of that, Merck faked the quantitative results of the tests to which the animal antibodies had been added.
Here is where these two Merck whistle blowers and Thompson, the CDC whistle blower, intersect:
In 2004, according to a report I have seen, Thompson wrote a letter to CDC Director, Julie Gerberding, warning her that he was about to present troubling and sensitive data about the MMR vaccine at an upcoming conference on vaccines and autism.
Thompson’s meaning was clear. He had found a connection between the MMR vaccine and autism.
Gerberding never answered his letter, and Thompson’s presentation at that conference was canceled.
Gerberding left the CDC in 2009.
She moved on to become…
The president of Merck Vaccines, the manufacturer of the MMR vaccine.
Major media consider this a non-story, on the level of a can of overflowing garbage on a quiet street corner.
Well, they have to consider it a non-story. If they reported it and pressed it and dug deep into it, they could fracture the pillars of the entire vaccine establishment.
In order to get at the whole truth (or refute any of the charges raised in this article), Congress needs to hold hearings, and competent committee members need to question, at length, William Thompson, the two Merck whistle blowers, and Julie Gerberding.
