Golden Globes’ Bizarre Flu Shot Shtick Backfires

One of the most surreal moments in television history took place at the 76th Golden Globe Awards ceremony at The Beverly Hilton hotel in Beverly Hills, California on Jan. 6, 2019. In what appeared to be a pre-planned stunt, show co-hosts Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg announced that the audience in attendance would be treated to free flu shots.1 2

Prior to a commercial break, Samberg announced, “Normally at this point of the show, the host would do something fun and spontaneous to show how we’re all just ordinary people, like ordering pizza for everyone.” Oh followed up, “But since we already get food at the Globes, we thought we’d mix it up and try something new. So, roll up your sleeves Hollywood, ‘cause you’re all getting flu shots!”1 2

With electronic dance music duo LMFAO’s song “Shots” blasting in the background and almost all of the audience laughing, with notable exceptions, a team of five people wearing white lab coats and holding vaccine syringes marched across the stage and stormed the floor to offer flu shots to the seated celebrities—many of whom seemed unsure whether to laugh, cringe or run from the unfolding spectacle.1 2

While Oh and Samberg remained onstage dancing and singing “shots, shots, shots, shots, shots, shots… shots!” you could hear Samberg egging on one of the inoculators, “Excuse me mam, you’re definitely going to want to get [Willem] Dafoe.” It sounded like they were playing a game of disco tag or something and Dafoe looked confused, not amused.1 2

Meanwhile, Oh sought to assure members of the audience that they were in safe hands, letting them know that, “These nurses are all licensed professionals straight from the Rite Aid in Echo Park.”1 2

“And look, if you’re an anti-vaxxer,” joked Samberg, “just put a napkin over your head and we’ll skip you.”1 2

During the 2014 Oscars, host Ellen DeGeneres brought in a pizza delivery man to pass out pizza to members of the audience. At the 2016 Emmys, host Jimmy Kimmel handed out peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. At the 2017 Oscars, Kimmel arranged to have his audience showered with candy, cookies and donuts parachuted from the ceiling.3 4 5

All of those “feed-the-audience” gimmicks were obviously aimed at generating publicity and drawing a few extra laughs. It seems like Oh and Samberg may simply have wanted to take the element of surprise entertainment to another level. But who knows who those individuals in the lab coats were and what was in those syringes. If they were, indeed, licensed medical professionals and they were carrying actual flu shots, it is worth noting that the three Fluzone influenza vaccines licensed in the United States contain egg protein that could cause allergic reactions in some people—or worse, flu shots can cause Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS).6

The whole thing was sold as a bit of harmless, innocent fun aimed at promoting a public health message. That’s not the way it came off and people posted scathing remarks on Twitter and other social media platforms about how bizarre it was. It was all in very poor taste. It was also just plain weird.

Attkisson Report Reveals Threats Against Congressmen Investigating Autism-Vaccine Link

By Barbara Loe Fisher

A Jan. 6, 2019 news report produced by investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson for Sinclair Broadcast Group revealed that retired congressmen Dan Burton (R-IN) and Dr. Dave Weldon (R-FL) and current Rep. Bill Posey (R-FL) were pressured by colleagues or threatened by PhRMA lobbyists to back away from examining vaccine safety issues, including the reported link between vaccines and autism.1 The report also revealed that, in 2007, federal government officials suppressed and then misrepresented the expert opinion of pediatric neurologist Dr. Andrew Zimmerman that vaccines can cause autism during U.S. Federal Court of Claims hearings evaluating vaccine-related autism claims filed in the federal vaccine injury compensation program (VICP).2

“You really need to… back off on this”

The “Vaccination Debate” report was featured on “Full Measure,” Sinclair’s investigative news show anchored by Attkisson, who said, “We spoke to 11 current and former members of Congress and staff who claim they faced pressure, bullying or threats when they raised vaccine safety questions.” Physician and former Rep. Dave Weldon commented, “It would typically be in a hallway or the street and people would come up to you and say, “You know, you really need to, you know, back off on this. It could be, it could be bad for the community or bad for the country or bad for you.”

Attkisson also interviewed Rolf Hazelhurst, whose now 18-year old son, Yates, suffered severe vaccine reactions as a child and regressed into chronic poor health that was eventually diagnosed as autism. Hazelhurst, a criminal prosecuting attorney, said, “And at first, I didn’t believe it. I did not think that, I did not believe that vaccines could cause autism. I didn’t believe it.”

US Government Suppresses Pediatric Neurologist’s Expert Opinion on Autism-Vaccine Link

After Rolf Hazelhurst learned that Dr. Zimmerman’s expert opinion was discounted and misrepresented by federal government officials for the purpose of denying federal vaccine injury compensation to his son3 and thousands of other children with vaccine related autism,4 Hazelhurst told congressional staffers at a 2013 briefing, “If I did to a criminal in a court of law what the United States Department of Justice did to vaccine injured children, I would be disbarred and I would be facing criminal charges.” He and environmental activist attorney Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. have filed a fraud complaint with the Justice Department Inspector General about the withholding of Zimmerman’s expert opinion on vaccine-induced autism in the U.S. Court of Federal Claims proceedings.

Medical experts silenced when it comes to effects of vaccines on kids?

By Jon Rappoport

As many of my regular readers know, first there was CDC Researcher, turned whistleblower, William Thompson. Thompson saw and participated in violating the protocol of a Measles-Mumps-Rubella study. He was there. He helped his co-authors destroy documents that would have shown an MMR-autism link. A movie was made about this controversy. It’s called Vaxxed.

Now, technically speaking, there’s a new whistleblower. His name is Dr Andrew Zimmerman.

Dr Zimmerman is the focus of an explosive, must watch investigative report by Sharyl Attkisson on the vaccine-autism connection.

Produced in the award-winning, old-school 60 Minutes -style — in the days when 60 Minutes meant something (*cough*, you’d have to go way back in time and look at pieces produced in the 1970s to get close to what Sharyl Attkisson is doing today), the story begins by introducing Rolf Hazlehurst, the father of a now-adult, severely brain-damaged young man, Yates Hazlehurst. Severely brain-damaged by vaccines (autism).

You sit there watching, and you slowly realize, that Yates will never get married and he’ll never start a family — not to mention that he needs full-time care, 24/7. You slowly realize he’s just one of the many, many casualties in a perverse silent civil war being waged on children in America.

And, if you’re above a certain age, the story that Sharyl Attkisson gives you, and the way in which she gives it to you — and it’s there, unfolding before your eyes on your computer or iTelephone screen, will surely bring a tear or two to your eyes.

Before sitting down to watch this 10-minute piece from beginning to end, put aside some time when you know you will not be interrupted, and, un-clutter your mind. And then, as you watch to the very end, you will come to Yate’s father’s one-sentence closing statement. I won’t spoil it for you. You have to watch.

And then watch the video again. And contemplate the high crimes… as your hair sets on fire.

“…a respected pro-vaccine medical expert [Dr Andrew Zimmerman] used by the federal government to debunk the vaccine-autism link, says vaccines can cause autism after all. He claims he told that to government officials long ago, but they kept it secret.”

Del Bigtree Highwire Presents The Science Isn’t Settled

Original here: https://www.ageofautism.com/2018/10/del-bigtree-highwire-presents-the-science-isnt-settled.html

We invite you to visit Del’s YouTube channel often.  Last week there was a meeting of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices.  The video below explains all.

Several parents attended the meeting and were appalled at the apathy and rubber stamp approach to recommending more and more vaccines even when logic fails.  There was a photo of one member taking a bit of a snooze during the proceedings. Nice. You may have read on Facebook that Dr. Paul Offit was in attendance and accepted a lunch invitation from a group of parents. We remain skeptical,  Sometimes we become caricatures to those who don’t really know us.  Sometimes a meeting can effect change. That said, Dr. Offit has been viciously cruel to all of us. I don’t care to give him any more ink. Put it this way, if he offers you a ride across the stream on his back, say “No, thanks.”

The next ACIP meeting is in February. See more here.
