Examining the CDC’s Flu Death Statistics: Various Articles, Plus a Take Action Link

What’s Behind the CDC Claiming 80,000 Died From Flu Last Winter?

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the 2017-2018 flu season was the deadliest flu season in the U.S. in four decades, hospitalizing 900,000 and killing 80,000, including 180 children. According to CNN,1 ” … [F]lu-related deaths have ranged from a low of about 12,000 during the 2011-2012 season to a high of about 56,000 during the 2012-2013.”

While that sounds ominous, it’s worth remembering that what they’re counting as “flu deaths” are not just deaths directly caused by the influenza virus, but also secondary infections such as pneumonia and other respiratory diseases, as well as sepsis.2

As you’d expect, these mortality statistics are now being used to frighten people into getting an annual flu shot. U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams goes even further, saying that getting vaccinated is a “social responsibility,” as it “protects others around you, including family, friends, co-workers and neighbors.”3

But is that actually true? Not according to recent research, it isn’t. In fact, research published earlier this year suggests repeated annual flu vaccinations could actually make you a greater health threat to your community. Influenza vaccination does not appear to lower the risk of disease transmission at all.

US Take Action: CDC claims 80,000 flu deaths last year, but provides no proof

Where’s the data? Flu shot associated with autism

In a recent interview with the Associated Press Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director Robert Redfield predictably said, “I’d like to see more people vaccinated,” but added that in last year’s season, “We lost 80,000 people to the flu.” But there is utterly no data or evidence to back up Redfield’s claim of that extraordinarily high number of deaths from flu. We would like to ask Dr. Redfield to please share the data that supports his claim.

According to the National Center for Health Statistics there is usually somewhere between 1,000 to 2,000 deaths from lab-verified flu annually in the US. Even though the number of flu shots given in the US increased 800% since the 1980s the number of verified deaths never seems to budge. The flu shot is notoriously ineffective, according to an meta-analysis by the Cochrane Collaboration typically 71 flu shots need to be administered to prevent one case of the flu.

Before you click on the Take Action link to send a message to Dr. Redfield, and his boss Secretary of Health and Human Service Alex Azar, asking him to provide the facts to back up his claim, please take a moment to consider the value of the news, information and advocacy provided to you by the Autism Action Network. If you want to keep that information coming please support our team in the Autism Community Walk and Resource Fair 2018 here:


There are significant associations between flu shots and autism. A recent study showed flu shots given to pregnant women in the first trimester of pregnancy are associated with a significant increase in autism in the child, but obstetricians still give flu shots to pregnant women in the first trimester. About 20% of flu shots in the US still contain thimerosal, a mercury-based preservative. Internal CDC studies performed by Thomas Verstraeten in the late 90s showed 700% more autism in children given thimerosal-containing vaccines in infancy (google Simpsonwood), but pediatricians still give thimerosal-containing flu shots to infants. Thimerosal is banned in most of the developed democracies but not here. Any flu shot taken from a multi-dose vial, rather than a pre-filled syringe, contains thimerosal.

Stop the clock!!! It’s at rank 55 at 6:30am!! 

We are delighted to report that JB Handley’s book How to end the Autism Epidemic has crossed the Amazon 100 line. THIS. IS. HUGE. Any book in or below the 100s is selling out fast. Now, Chelsea Green, the fine publisher, and JB’s personal publicity team, fine people, have worked like DOGS to send press releases, secure broadcast appearances from coast to coast.




And the book broke into the top 100 on Amazon DESPITE the cold shoulder from the media. It’s a sad thing really. Autism is one of the fastest growing and most difficult, yes difficult, epidemics facing families, schools and now, adult programs and employment in the USA.

‘How To End The Autism Epidemic’ Is Amazon Best Seller

[Comment: Please order a copy of How to End the Autism Epidemic from your local independent book store.]

Original here:

Just checked Amazon. JB’s book is now 193. This is astounding, especially considering not ONE mainstream media print or broadcast outlet picked up the press release or will invite JB on to discuss the book. NOT ONE. The media spoon feeds citizens what its masters dictate.

EXCERPT OF AN EMAIL FROM AUTISM ACTION NETWORK (http://autismactionnetwork.org)

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. has this to say about J.B. and How to End the Autism Epidemic:

“J.B. Handley is arguably the world’s most thoughtful, sophisticated, knowledgeable, and indefatigable activist for children’s health and safety. As a frontline leader for fifteen years, Handley has led the big fistfight against the Pharma Cartel to force the issue, broadcast the science, and expose the lies behind the vaccine policies that have created an epidemic of chronic disease among our children. Handley has helped bring the issue of toxins in medical products and regulatory corruption to a tipping point. Handley’s advocacy has lifted the curtain of lies behind which the autism epidemic has sprouted. When we end this cataclysm, it will be thanks to the dogged character of people like J.B. Handley who have refused to rest in his battle to support parents, protect children, bring justice to injured families, and to punish those responsible for one of the worst scandals in American history. Please read this book and decide for yourself if you still believe that vaccines are ‘safe and effective.’”



Anti-vaxx people are really Russian bots

Anti-vaxx people are really Russian bots


by Jon Rappoport

Well, well. The virulently pro-vax forces have just discovered their opponents are really, wait for it, Russian bots, launched to promote societal discord and polarize conflict.

That settles it. Nothing to see, move along. The arguments rejecting vaccine safety and efficacy were just bot-nonsense. No need to understand what they were saying. It was all a sham. Vaccines are wonderful. Everybody knows that.

On California Senator Richard Pan’s website—Pan sponsored the mandatory childhood vaccination bill in CA that became law—we find this:

“Dr. Richard Pan, a pediatrician and state senator representing the Sacramento region, responded to the study, ‘Weaponized Health Communication: Twitter and Russian Trolls Amplify the Vaccine Debate’, published in the American Journal of Public Health.”

[Senator Pan states] “This research provides evidence that foreign and domestic agents are manipulating social media through bots to discourage vaccination to promote their own agendas; Russian trolls for sowing political discord and commercial and malware distributors for marketing. In addition, the researchers concluded that a significant proportion of anti-vaccination messages are organized ‘astroturf.’ Manipulation of social media to promote anti-vaccine messages by outside agents poses a serious threat to the health and safety of Americans…”

The devious implication? There is no serious anti-vaccine research, it’s all bots and Russians.

I know at least a dozen serious independent vaccine researchers who have found huge holes in conventional vaccine mythology—but guess what? It turns out they’re non-human bots. Who knew I was sitting having coffee with a bot? Wow. Amazing what you learn when you listen to Authorities.

Senator Pan is pushing the envelope by sponsoring a new bill in the CA senate. Here is what I recently wrote about that:

California used to be trumpeted as the cutting edge of American culture.

It still is, except the culture is now all about censoring free speech.

California Senator Richard Pan, who was behind the infamous 2015 law mandating vaccinations for schoolchildren (SB277), has stepped up to the plate and introduced another bill.

This one would clamp down on criticism of ANY Official Story.

The bill is titled “SB1424 Internet: social media: false information: strategic plan.”

It targets social media based in California. But as you read the bill, you see it appears to define social media as any Internet blog, website, or communication.
