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.



New Flu Vaccine More Dangerous and Less Effective

Original here:

Why does the CDC continue to push ineffective vaccines to prevent the flu while staying silent on the benefits of natural medicine?  Action Alert!

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently greenlit the nasal flu vaccine (FluMist) after advising the public to avoid that product for the last two years because it had not appeared to work as well against the H1N1 strain of the virus (even though the overall effectiveness of the flu vaccine in the 2017-2018 season was just 40%). It’s time for the CDC to stop guaranteeing profits for the vaccine industry and to start telling us the truth about how to really avoid the flu.

What caused the CDC’s change of heart? According to some reports, members of the CDC were worried that sidelining the nasal vaccine would mean fewer people get vaccinated—demonstrating that the CDC is more concerned with vaccination rates than with safety. It must just be a coincidence that high vaccination rates mean higher profits for the vaccine industry.

Is FluMist safe? According to the package insert, the nasal vaccine does not contain mercury or aluminum, two adjuvants that are particularly troubling, but it does contain monosodium glutamate (MSG) which has been linked with a long list of negative health effects including thyroid damage, kidney dysfunction, brain lesions, seizures, increased risk of infertility, diabetes, and endocrine disruption.

Consumers should also note the warnings listed in FluMist’s package insert, namely that FluMist “has not been studied in immunocompromised persons,” and has an increased risk of hospitalization in children younger than two. Additionally, the package insert states that FluMist’s safety and effectiveness has not been established in pregnant women, nursing mothers, geriatric adults, or children younger than two. Needless to say, these warnings do not inspire a great deal of confidence.

Dr. Russel Blaylock has also pointed out that there are specific dangers with spraying things into our noses because many compounds can be carried directly to the brain through the olfactory nerves, where they can accumulate and cause inflammation. Chemicals carried to the brain in this manner are not blocked by the brain’s barrier system and can end up in the areas most affected by Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. Taking a nasal vaccine, then, is especially dangerous because there is a risk that a live virus can enter the brain and cause inflammation and neurodegeneration. (The Blaylock Wellness Report March 2017).

What about the flu vaccine overall? The track record is not good. Estimates from the CDC suggest the overall effectiveness of the 2017/2018 flu vaccine is around 40 percent. A meta-analysis found that 71 people needed to be vaccinated in order for a single case of influenza to be avoided; contrast that with another review article which found that, for every 33 people taking a vitamin D supplement, one person would be spared an acute respiratory infection. And let’s not forget that some flu shots still contain mercury, a dangerous neurotoxin. This is further evidence of what we’ve been saying for years: the flu shot, especially when compared with natural medicine, is ineffective and dangerous.

Given the facts about the flu vaccine’s dangers and ineffectiveness, it is shameful that the CDC continues to push this medical treatment, yet refuses to tell the truth about natural medicines that actually work. Is the CDC really more concerned about lining the pockets of vaccine-makers than with actually telling us how we can protect ourselves from the flu?

We’ve written previously that vitamin D, intravenous vitamin C, liposomal vitamin C, vitamin A, and garlic all have strong antiviral properties. The reason you may not have heard about these treatments is that they are cheap and natural. They can’t be patented, and therefore no company can afford to pay as much as $2.56 billion to take them through the FDA’s drug approval process.  Hence, they can’t make claims to cure, mitigate, treat, or prevent the flu or any other disease—even if we know they do.

Why does this happen? The simple answer is money. Natural medicines can’t make money for drug companies, and drug companies fund the FDA. So, naturally, the CDC and the FDA stay silent, and instead push whatever new product the industry has devised, no matter the risks.

Action Alert! Tell the CDC and FDA that, instead of pushing yet another ineffective and risky vaccine, they tell the truth about cheap, safe, and effective natural anti-viral medicines to avoid the flu this season. Please send your message immediately.



Children Given Flu Shots in School Classrooms

Original here:

by Rishma Parpia

School districts across the United States have partnered with Healthy Schools, LLC of Jacksonville, Florida to administer influenza vaccinations to children in classrooms for the purpose of preventing absenteeism.

Denise Blatt, Director of Pupil Services for Elyria Public School in Ohio notes: “Our days are limited, you know, the time that we get to spend with our students here and get them ready for everything they need to know. One day is important, let alone when they’re out with the flu it can be multiple days sometimes a week.”1 2 3 4

Cintia Johnson, Assistant Superintendent for Administrative Services for Arlington Public Schools in Northern Virginia says that their goal is to improve student access to influenza vaccines. “We’re increasing awareness about the importance of flu shots, we’re providing education around that through the information that parents receive, and then we’re making it easy for parents to access by having it right there where their child attends.”3 

According to news reports, Healthy Schools is paid to manage the entire school-based vaccination program, from seeking parental consent to setting up vaccination “clinics” on school property.1 4

Healthy Schools, LLC was founded by former Jacksonville Jaguars professional football player Tony Boselli.5 The organization’s website states:

Boselli established Healthy Schools when he realized how often students miss out on valuable classroom time when they cannot access quality care. On top of missing school, kids bring illnesses like the flu home to parents and siblings. Knowing a majority of families can’t afford to stay home, he created Healthy Schools to bring high-quality, no-cost health services directly to public school students during the school day. In-school health services provide a unique convenience for parents, reduce absenteeism in schools, and most importantly, create healthy kids and Healthy Schools.5 

In 2017, Boselli sold Healthy Schools to pediatric healthcare technology provider CareDox, Inc. of New York, where he is now a partner and the president.


Regarding Recent News Reports of Measles Cases Identified in Sarasota

We hope and pray that the children in Sarasota reportedly suffering from the measles will have a full and speedy recovery.

It is also our sincere hope that the reaction from officials and the news media to this situation will not follow the usual script, which goes something like this:

[1] Blame and scapegoat the unvaccinated, while ignoring numerous problems associated with the MMR (Measles-Mumps-Rubella) vaccine, which many credentialed experts describe as ineffective and unsafe

[2] Call for the removal of vaccination exemptions

[3] Repeat the calls for mandatory vaccination, with no exceptions regardless of family medical history, or known problems of efficacy and/or safety with certain vaccines.

For a brief introduction to some of the problems associated with the MMR (Measles-Mumps-Rubella) vaccine, please see:

Can Measles Vaccine Cause Injury & Death?
As of March 1, 2016, there have been 972 claims filed so far in the federal Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) for 57 deaths and 915 injuries that occurred after MMR vaccination. There have been 35 claims filed with the VICP for 1 death and 34 injuries that occurred after MMR-V vaccination. Of that number, the U.S. Court of Claims administering the VICP has compensated 377 children and adults, who have filed MMR vaccine injury claims and 16 children and adults, who have filed MMR-V claims.

Sarasota] $101 Million Dollar Vaccine Injury Award for Encephalopathy from MMR Vaccine
(July 17th, 2018 – SARASOTA, FL) — Attorneys at Maglio Christopher & Toale, P.A. negotiated a $101 million dollar settlement for an infant who suffered a severe reaction to the Measles Mumps Rubella (MMR) vaccine.

O.R.* was a one-year-old healthy baby girl who was already walking and climbing. On February 13, 2013, she received vaccinations for Measles Mumps Rubella (MMR), Hepatitis A, Haemophilus Influenzae type B (Hib), Prevnar (pneumonia), and Varicella (chickenpox). That evening, the mother noticed baby O.R. was irritable and feverish. After a call to the pediatrician, the doctor advised Mom to give her Tylenol and Benadryl. The fever continued for several days and on the evening before the baby’s scheduled pediatrician visit, O.R. began having severe seizures. She was rushed to the emergency room. Baby O.R. went into cardiac and respiratory arrest and doctors placed her on a ventilator.

The seizures and cardiac arrest left O.R. with a severe brain injury, encephalopathy, cortical vision impairment, truncal hypotonia (low muscle tone), and kidney failure. After months of treatment at the hospital, baby O.R. finally went home, but her disabilities require specialized medical care and supervision around the clock for the rest of her life.

Is MMR Vaccine a Fraud or Does It Just Wear Off Quickly?
This was also the main point of contention of a second class action lawsuit, filed by Chatom Primary Care16 in 2012, which charged Merck with violating the False Claims Act. Both of these lawsuits were given the green light to proceed in 2014,17 18 and are still pending.

In 2015, Merck was accused of stonewalling, “refusing to respond to questions about the efficacy of the vaccine,” according to a court filing by Krahling and Wlochowski’s legal team.19 “Merck should not be permitted to raise as one of its principal defenses that its vaccine has a high efficacy … but then refuse to answer what it claims that efficacy actually is,” they said.

‘Vaccines Revealed’: CDC Knew in 2001 That MMR Vaccine Causes Autism
The CDC Knew in 2001 That The MMR Vaccine Causes Autism!
In Dr. Brian Hooker’s second interview he discusses in detail his conversations with CDC lead scientist Dr. William Thompson and the revelation that the CDC committed fraud by hiding that the MMR vaccine causes Autism in certain populations.

In Conclusion:

As always, we must remain ever-vigilant to defend our rights to informed consent and genuine health freedom, and to always demand safer, more effective solutions to protect our own health and the health of our communities.
