RIP Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, An Amazing Woman and Life

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has passed away at age 87. She was one of just two justices who dissented from the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold indemnity for vaccine manufacturers. At the time, Age of Autism‘s then-Legal Editor Kent Heckenlively wrote an excellent piece titled We Lost Bruesewitz v. Wyeth, But We Gained Sotomayor and Ginsburg. Heckenlively wrote:

To put it bluntly, the republican males of the court folded and the democratic women, Sotomayor and Ginsburg stood firm and identified the true issues in the case.  

Upon hearing the news of Justice Ginsburg’s passing, President Trump weighed in.

Justice Ginsburg was an amazing woman, indeed.

Biden Friend Meghan McCain – “one of the great tragedies…is anti-vaxxers”

Meghan McCain, friend of Joe Biden, just said that “one of the great tragedies of the past 10 to 15 years of my life is anti-vaxxers.” The apple never fell far from the tree.

In 2008, news broke that the government conceded that vaccines caused Hannah Poling’s autism. Just as the story was breaking, Senator John McCain was asked about the concession by a parent at a town hall meeting. Sufficiently cornered, Senator McCain had to tell the truth.

“There’s strong evidence that it’s got to do with a preservative in vaccines,” McCain told the parent regarding the mercury-based additive thimerosal.

Then in an act of complete betrayal, McCain gave former Senate Majority Leader and GlaxoSmithKline puppet Bill Frist a speaking slot at the Republican National Convention. Hijacking the War on Terror for his pharmaceutical donor’s agenda, Frist had tried to block thimerosal litigation against vaccine makers by slipping a rider into the Homeland Security Bill. “The lawsuits are of such magnitude that they could put vaccine producers out of business and limit our capacity to deal with a biological attack by terrorists,” Frist’s advisor claimed to Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

Bill Frist is the reason Autism Investigated’s future editor wrote in Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s name on the presidential ballot instead of voting for John McCain. In Frist’s convention speech endorsing McCain’s nomination for president, Frist said:

John McCain understands that health diplomacy can be a powerful antidote to terrorism.

America did not benefit from Obama’s presidency, and it also did not benefit from McCain’s “health diplomacy” approved by Frist. Barack Obama and Meghan McCain are both endorsing Joe Biden. However, McCain can thank career politicians like Joe Biden, Barack Obama and her dad for President Trump.

VIDEO: Joe Biden Would Take COVID-19 Vaccine TOMMOROW

Select quote to Fox News: “But pray God we have it! If I could get a vaccine tomorrow, I’d do it! If it cost me the election, I’d do it! We need a vaccine, and we need it now – as quickly as we can get it.”

COVID-19 Vaccine “Warp Speed” Architect Endorses Joe Biden for President

James Greenwood, former congressman and president of the Biotechnology Innovation Organization

For all of the media’s criticism of President Trump for “Operation Warp Speed” – the federal initiative to develop a COVID-19 vaccine in record time – they negate that its architect just endorsed Joe Biden for president. For 12 years, James Greenwood was a Republican Congressman representing a district in Pennsylvania. He then left office through the revolving door into industry, becoming president of the Biotechnology Innovation Organization (BIO) for the last 15 years. Just before leaving that job, he called the former head of GlaxoSmithKline’s vaccine division and offered him the new job as commander of “Operation Warp Speed.” That vaccine insider, Moncef Slaoui, accepted Greenwood’s offer.

Months later in a blistering op-ed published in a local newspaper during the Republican National Convention, Greenwood attacked President Trump’s “erratic and unconscionable behavior.” By contrast, Greenwood argued, Joe Biden “will unite us through compromise and pragmatic problem-solving.” In other words, Joe Biden is someone who Washington insiders like James Greenwood can easily control. A re-elected President Trump is not.

Also remarkable about Greenwood’s op-ed is his shifting of blame on President Trump for the country’s response to the coronavirus pandemic. Yet the Secretary of Health and Human Services was a board member of Greenwood’s lobbying group before his appointment to President Trump’s Cabinet. When Secretary Azar was confirmed to his post, the confirmation was personally praised by Greenwood. He then named a number of reasons why Azar was a good fit for the role, none of which involved preparing for a pandemic. The person now running the federal response to the COVID-19 pandemic was the Global AIDS Coordinator for the State Department.

Absent from Greenwood’s op-ed was any concern about the speed with which a COVID-19 vaccine was being developed, however. Perhaps that is because Joe Biden will actually accelerate the already hastened development of vaccines.

What more do you expect from a candidate whose running mate enthusiastically stripped Californians of their vaccine exemptions? All those critics of President Trump who claim to be concerned about the speed with which the vaccine is being developed don’t care about vaccine safety at all. Their real fear is President Trump getting re-elected, as they’ve said themselves. Watch their “concern” about vaccine safety end after November 3.

2014: JB Handley and Other Readers Saw Through The CDC “Whistleblower”

JB Handley on “The Doctors,” 2009

JB Handley doesn’t always get it right, but he is never afraid to speak his mind. He always says what he means, for better or for worse. In the case of CDC employee and “whistleblower” William Thompson, Handley and other readers of Autism Investigated saw through the schtick even before Thompson released his since-removed statement in 2014. Just recently, Autism Investigated revealed that the statement was quietly taken down in 2017. Back in 2014, Handley wasn’t ready to buy the “CDC whistleblower” story when it first came out. He made that clear in his below comment on Autism Investigated at the time:

Chris Rock does a great piece about people braggin’ about doing stuff they’re supposed to do. He gives an example, something to the effect of “I take care of my kids” to which Rock replies, “You’re supposed to take care of your kids, you $%^#!!”

I feel the same way about this “whistleblower.” I’m tired of hearing how stressed, troubled, and silent he is. Speak up, man! Your choice to not do the right thing for over a decade and then finally do the right thing does not win a lot of points from me. He was supposed to take care of OUR KIDS, and he sat on the shit for YEARS!!

IMO, your piece and this whole angle appears childish to me, trying to play gotcha with Andy. I have no idea what Andy Wakefield and this whistleblower did/didn’t agree to, although Andy makes it quite clear that he had permission to out him.

At the end of the day, I could care less. If Andy outed the whistleblower without his permission,, so what? That’s not the story. The story is the story: CDC employees being told to manipulate outcomes to hide the vaccine-autism relationship. I’m guessing Andy’s goal here is for FEWER CHILDREN TO GET AUTISM. Heck, maybe the whistleblower has been dragging his feet for years (I’m not an insider on this whole thing, just an exuberant bystander)….maybe Andy felt it was now or never? It doesn’t matter, what matters is the facts.

I’m disgusted by the amount of infighting our community is demonstrating in the public realm. Frankly, with only limited time and energy, it’s turned me off from being very public the last 18 months. If I read your archives, have you beat me up, too? You seem to have a big brain and lots of passion, any chance you can re-direct it towards the real bad guys?



Handley was in good company, as many readers had already appeared in the comments of Autism Investigated to opine on “the whistleblower.” Barry – another prominent reader – had the following to say:

My child was born in 2003. He was born perfectly healthy, and was ahead of every developmental milestone up to around the age of 1.

At 14 months, he received his first MMR vaccine. At 21 months, he received his second MMR. By 24 months of age, my perfectly healthy son was gone.

If I had known back in 2003, what this guy decided to hide from me, my son would never have received an MMR vaccine. And he would not have an autistic label today.

It took 11 years, and an FOIA inquiry to make this guy grow a conscience. That’s way to little, way too late for me. And he’s not exactly telling us anything that we don’t already know.

So you’ll have to understand Jake, that I’m not in the mood to hold a parade for him.

After Autism Investigated responded to Barry’s comment, JB Handley replied by eviscerating Autism Investigated:

I think they call this “self-serving biased moralism”

Equally, I had the right to vaccinate my child with full knowledge of the risks I was incurring. But, Thompson’s cowardice (along with that of his colleagues) prevented me from doing that.

You’ve chosen to draw a line that serves your interest of fighting with Andy, but subjective moralism applied in the self-serving manner as yours does here is not helping any kids.


JB Handley knew to remove the word “respectfully” when he concluded that comment. Before Handley and Barry left any comments, longtime reader John Best left a long comment that began with these two prophetic sentences:

As usual, there is no whistleblower. This is just another bit of psychological warfare designed to make the whole autism community look foolish, especially Brian Hooker. [whom Thompson first contacted]

Best concluded his comment with some advice for Dr. Brian Hooker:

I hate to conclude that Brian Hooker has been corrupted but perhaps he has been fooled. Our 100% corrupt government would certainly go to great lengths to discredit someone with Brian’s reputation. Perhaps he will consider my words here and rethink his support for this obviously bogus garbage from an alleged whistleblower.

The next day, Best wrote:

The “whistleblower” and the CDC are laughing at everyone who believes their BS.

Days after John Best left these comments, Dr. Hooker’s study of data from a 2004 paper Thompson claimed to be a “whistleblower” on was suddenly pulled from the internet by the publisher. Dr. Hooker’s paper was deleted on the same day Thompson released his later-removed statement through his attorney. One month after that, Dr. Hooker’s study was retracted.

If the CDC wasn’t laughing at us after its deletion, they sure were laughing at us after the retraction.

Kamala Harris Enforced California’s Revocation of Vaccine Exemptions

The stories coming out of California about blatant intrusions into the daily lives of its residents may soon become reality for all Americans. Joe Biden has just announced his running mate will be Senator Kamala Harris, formerly Attorney General of California. As Attorney General, Harris brutally and efficiently implemented SB277 – the law that eliminated all non-physician vaccine exemptions.

The brute force with which that law has been carried out was captured on film in real-time. As can be seen from stills of a since-removed video posted by Infowars, an unnamed school official is seen serving papers to a mother while demanding her son’s vaccination records. In the other still, he can be seen walking away with a police officer who accompanied him after he followed the horrified mother to her son’s bus stop. The mother, who had taken the video, was even threatened with arrest. Attorney General Harris went even further than the law required her to go, however.

Almost as soon as SB277 came into effect in 2016, pediatrician Dr. Bob Sears was subject to a formal complaint by the Medical Board of California for exempting a child of vaccines after that child suffered severe reactions resulting in multiple organ shut-down. Dr. Sears was subsequently put on three-years probation, which he is still serving. Since SB277’s passage, California’s current governor Gavin Newsom signed into state law exactly what was practiced with Dr. Sears.

Last September, Newsom signed SB276. The law completely stripped physicians of their right to issue vaccine exemptions and placed the authority into the hands of the California Department of Public Health. Four months before that fateful decision, Senator Harris sent out the below tweet on the day Joe Biden announced his presidential campaign and three months after she launched her own.

Although she was elected to the Senate before Newsom was elected governor, she was attorney general while he was already lieutenant governor. Before either held state positions, she was DA of San Francisco while he was mayor. It’s hard to imagine anyone having more of an influence on the legal opinions of California’s current governor than Senator Harris.

Her joining the Democratic ticket also shows she is perfectly content with whoever Newsom appoints to replace her should she be elected vice president. One month after signing SB276, he appointed the medical board director who sanctioned Dr. Sears to become California’s director of consumer affairs! Whoever would fill Harris’ Senate seat is still not even as scary as the fact that her electoral victory would make her the most powerful vice president in living memory.

To anyone remotely following Joe Biden’s presidential campaign, it’s obvious that he won’t be making the presidential decisions even if he wins the presidency on paper. Senator Harris knows that and knows the profound implications of being his running mate.

The rest of America should know what it means, too. It means that if you don’t want your entire country becoming like California, you should reject any ticket with Senator Harris’ name on it. Whichever state you move to, you could no longer escape her.

CDC “Whistleblower” Removed 2014 “Whistleblowing” Statement in 2017

CDC senior scientist William Thompson has confirmed to Autism Investigated that he removed his 2014 statement about an alleged disagreement with coauthors of a 10-year-old vaccine-autism study. In fact, it has been removed from his attorney’s site for years. Archived webpages show it has not been online since March 2017, while the newly inaugurated Trump Administration was still deliberating over who to appoint CDC Director.

Pressed further on why the statement was quietly removed, Thompson evasively replied:

My lawyer didn’t think it was helpful any longer and advised that we take it down. We also knew plenty of copies were circulating elsewhere. My opinions have not changed. BT

Autism Investigated did not ask Thompson if his opinions changed, as it shouldn’t matter since he will no longer share them through a whistleblower attorney. In removing his statement, Thompson has just confirmed that he no longer considers himself a whistleblower if indeed he ever planned to be one. Yet he also acknowledged that he continues to be misrepresented as a whistleblower throughout a movement that he has altered so significantly, which he’s apparently fine with.

The latest revelations only add to existing questions about just what Thompson’s positions actually are. Why hasn’t he removed his name from the study? Why does he remain employed by the CDC after all these years? Thompson was equally vague:

I am still not allowed to speak about the CDC internal investigation.

In August 2015, a CDC spokesman told Forbes that there was such an investigation and that further information would be provided “in the coming weeks or months.” The removal of Thompson’s statement from his attorney’s website speaks for itself.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Unleashes Smear Campaign to Support Nephew Joe Kennedy’s US Senate Run Against Dr. Shiva Ayyadurai

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and Joe Kennedy

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has a problem with Dr. Shiva Ayyadurai, which is hardly surprising. Dr. Shiva Ayyadurai is running for US Senate against RFK Jr.’s nephew, sitting congressman Joe Kennedy. While Dr. Ayyadurai has routinely criticized vaccines, Congressman Kennedy has routinely defended them. The following are the inconvenient facts Robert F. Kennedy Jr. ignores in his attacks on Dr. Ayyadurai:

1. Dr. Shiva Ayyadurai does not make vaccines, despite Kennedy’s assertions. Dr. Ayyadurai’s company CytoSolve is a software company that makes computer-based mathematical models of biological functions. Pfizer sought to use one of CytoSolve’s models and later reneged.

2. In contrast to Kennedy’s claim, Dr. Shiva Ayyadurai did not work for Bill Clinton. As a graduate student at MIT, Dr. Ayyadurai won an email classification contest cosponsored by the National Institute of Standards and the Executive Office of the White House when Clinton happened to be president. Dr. Ayyadurai has never taken money from the Clinton family and would never take money from them.

3. By contrast, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has endorsed Hillary Clinton three times, twice for president during both the 2008 and 2016 election cycles and even supported her US Senate campaign in the 2000 election cycle. Hillary Clinton was a big proponent of vaccines throughout her 2016 candidacy and took money from Monsanto. She was also the largest recipient in pharma donations and her foundation received over $150 million from the Gates Foundation to the Clinton Global Initiative. Dr. Shiva Ayyadurai strongly opposed her 2016 candidacy when Kennedy supported it. Dr. Ayyadurai never voted until Donald Trump ran for president.

4. Robert F. Kennedy Jr. says Dr. Shiva Ayyadurai is in partnership with Microsoft and never criticizes Bill Gates. That could not be further from the truth. Dr. Ayyadurai is not in partnership with Microsoft and criticizes Bill Gates all the time. Dr. Ayyadurai’s company EchoMail purchased computer products that included Microsoft products and has received business discounts, but EchoMail does not partner with Microsoft. He also criticizes Bill Gates constantly. Just look at Dr. Ayyadurai’s Twitter feed.

5. The bottom line is that Dr. Shiva Ayyadurai is running for US Senate to end the “one-size-fits-all” federal vaccine program ratified by President Kennedy as well as the scheme shielding vaccine companies from liability that Senator Ted Kennedy co-sponsored. Dr. Ayyadurai’s opponent and Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s nephew Joe Kennedy wants to keep that corrupt system going and even expand it. Likewise, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has said he wants policies that encourage “full vaccination for all Americans” and wants to expand government involvement. All of this is public information yet it is mind-boggling that anyone considers him “anti-vaccine.”

Autism Investigated is a longtime witness of Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s vaccine compromises. He chopped the entire section on autism out of his 2014 book that he ironically named, “Thimerosal: Let The Science Speak,” about the mercury-based vaccine preservative thimerosal and its toxicity. He only published the full book a year later after Autism Investigated posted the complete manuscript online without his consent.

Despite his call for “unity,” Kennedy refuses any partnership with others who will expose his hypocrisy. For example, Kennedy refused to collaborate with Autism Investigated with the following admission:

“I recognize the important value of your brand of uncompromising,“Take no prisoners” advocacy…but it’s not a good fit for our tactical approach.”

His “tactical approach” is now focused on fundraising for his nephew’s US Senate candidacy against Dr. Ayyadurai in Massachusetts, proving Robert F. Kennedy Jr. puts bloodlines over principles. He is also heavily influenced by Mark Blaxill of “Health Choice,” who has repeatedly thwarted congressional advocacy of vaccine injury activists, called tobacco science defending thimerosal “robust” and taken credit for other people’s work.

Compare who Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is supporting for US Senate to Dr. Ayyadurai’s own Senate platform, and the choice couldn’t be clearer. RFK Jr.’s nephew wants to keep the federal vaccine promotion and indemnity laws that RFK Jr.’s uncles ratified or co-sponsored. Dr. Ayyadurai has proposed a bill to specifically have those laws repealed, vaccine indemnity lifted and the vaccine program eliminated.

It’s clear to anyone what this smear campaign is all about.

COVID-19: Wishing Senator Rand Paul Another Speedy Recovery

Several years ago, Senator Rand Paul was wished a speedy recovery when he was assaulted by a neighbor over political differences. Now Senator Paul is being wished a second, speedy recovery.

Today this afternoon, Senator Rand Paul announced that he had tested positive for COVID-19. He is the first US Senator to test positive in a viral pandemic that has sickened over 300,000 people and killed nearly 15,000 people worldwide. So far, he is feeling fine.

Senator Paul’s diagnosis should serve as a reminder to all of us that we need to do our part to avoid the spread of this contagious disease. The more we work together and take personal responsibility, the more we can do our part to end the virus’ spread while protecting our civil liberties.

So wash your hands thoroughly (30 seconds, including the backhand, between the fingers and the fingernails). Stay home as much as possible. Work from home if you can. Cough in your elbow, and avoid touching your face. Never go out if you feel sick. If you feel sick and you’ve traveled internationally or have come in contact with someone who has COVID-19, seek medical assistance. Together, we can beat this thing.
