GOING BUMPERS: Forty Years of Ignoring Vaccination Toxicity

Betty Bumpers, KATV

Former First Lady of Arkansas Betty Bumpers is dead at 93. She is the reason why all 50 states now have vaccine mandates, which she orchestrated along with Rosalynn Carter during her husband’s presidency. The mandatory vaccinations led to out of control vaccine injuries. Those then led to the creation of the infamous Vaccine Injury Compensation Program shielding pharmaceutical companies from liability. If Bumpers’ contributions to toxic vaccinations ended there, that would seal her awful legacy. Unfortunately, she only got started.

Bumpers and Carter both co-founded the front group Every Child By Two which shamelessly took money from vaccine manufacturers to promote vaccines. The group held a press conference in 2008 where Katie Wright was barred from attending despite being the daughter of Autism Speaks‘ cofounders. Rosalynn Carter was the first but not the last first lady Bumpers influenced.

She also influenced the vaccine views of another former first lady as well as another former first lady of Arkansas: failed 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Her daughter Chelsea Clinton is still mad at anti-vaxxers for her mother’s election defeat. From Carter to Clinton, the deceased first lady of Arkansas led the Democrat Party straight to vaccination lunacy.

She didn’t just ignore problems with vaccines in the 21st century, however. She also ignored them when she was first pushing vaccine mandates. The year of Jimmy Carter’s election was also the year of the first swine flu scare. In 1976, an untested vaccine was pushed on the American public. Scores of people were paralyzed and killed over what proved to be a fake epidemic. That didn’t discourage Betty, nor has 40 years of epidemic vaccine damage that’s happened since.

Betty Bumpers’ life is a cautionary tale of how the zealous belief in an unprecedented government overreach such as nationwide vaccine mandates can have deadly consequences. The lesson becomes all the more important as more and more children are injured, not to mention as “democratic” socialism increasingly comes into vogue.

CDC Vaccine Chief’s Brother No Longer Heads 2016-Related Investigations

Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein announcing the indictments of 13 Russians, July 13, 2018

Ironically, the big news the week of the election isn’t about any elected office. It’s about an appointed one. Jeff Sessions has just resigned as attorney general. His tenure was defined by his recusal from any investigations related to the 2016 election cycle. Even more ironic, the deputy attorney general who subsequently assumed that role had a much greater conflict than Sessions may have had by any reasonable measure. With Sessions now gone, oversight of 2016-related investigations including the Russia investigation has been passed to his former chief of staff and acting replacement.

But before Sessions resigned, oversight fell on the brother of CDC’s vaccine chief. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s sister is Dr. Nancy Messonnier, director of the CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases.

President Trump’s criticism of toxic vaccines goes back a decade, long before he ran for office. He repeated those criticisms as a candidate on the campaign trial. His election reportedly caused employees at Messonnier’s workplace to cry in the hallways. How ironic that the election would also cause her brother to hold an appointment one rung below a cabinet member?

Throughout the course of Rosenstein’s tenure, he has wielded his unprecedented power with strong authority. He appointed the special counsel that continues to run the Russia investigation and ordered the FBI raid on the office of a now-former lawyer of Trump’s. Most recently, Rosenstein announced the indictments of 13 Russians who will never even stand trial.

Now the power that enabled him to do all that has been stripped away as he appears frozen in his position, if he keeps it. He will not even assume the title of acting attorney general. The reason for Jeff Sessions’ removal may not be about Jeff Sessions so much as it is about Rod Rosenstein.

How Paul Offit Profited Off The Backs of Kids Injured by GSK’s MMR Vaccine

“Get the fuck out of here! Piece of shit!”

That is what vaccine inventor Paul Offit yelled at Autism Investigated’s editor after being told that protection from personal injury litigation was making money off the backs of vaccine-injured kids. It turns out he was doing exactly that for his entire career, starting with his rotavirus vaccine’s development. At the time, the Wistar Institute he was working for was profiting from dangerous, since-withdrawn and secretly indemnified measles-mumps-rubella vaccines sold in the UK.

The co-inventor of Offit’s vaccine Stanley Plotkin is the inventor of the rubella component of all measles-mumps-rubella vaccines. Co-assignee of Offit’s vaccine patent Wistar Institute was the patent assignee of all rubella components of measles-mumps-rubella vaccines. That includes the now-withdrawn Pluserix vaccine introduced to the United Kingdom by Smith, Kline and French Laboratories, which previously funded Plotkin’s rubella vaccine development. During Pluserix’s introduction, Smith, Kline and French was an English subsidiary of Philadelphia-based SmithKline Beckman. Offit, Plotkin and Wistar were all based in Philadelphia as well.

Despite being already withdrawn in Canada for causing meningitis, Smith, Kline and French’s Pluserix vaccine was approved by the United Kingdom in 1988. In the supply agreement, the UK’s National Health Service secretly indemnified Smith, Kline and French Laboratories from liability. That made the British government liable for resulting vaccine injuries.

Subsequently, MMR vaccine injury litigation was shut down in the United Kingdom when federal funding was suddenly denied to lawsuits. Autism-vaccine research was shut down as well, the chief scientist fired and de-licensed. To this day, papers continue to be retracted including one by a long-deceased scientist. Medical records of children in the seminal 1998 vaccine-autism paper were stolen and expropriated by GlaxoSmithKline’s opposition researchers.

Paul Offit’s vaccine was developed with the dirty indemnity money that led to all of that. No wonder he still partners with GlaxoSmithKline to promote vaccines and dishonestly deny vaccine injury.

Rachel Hotez is Just The Latest Autistic Victim of Glaxploitation Courtesy of Her Daddy GlaxoSmithKline

Unlike with the children in the 1998 autism-vaccine paper, GlaxoSmithKline doesn’t need to steal Rachel Hotez’s medical records. GSK already has them, because GSK is literally her daddy. Glaxploitation is easiest with a child of GlaxoSmithKline.

Peter Hotez was a total nobody before he was elevated to science chair of the GSK front group Sabin Vaccine Institute. He got that position in 1998. One can only imagine why…

In 2002, Hotez joined GSK’s policy advisory board on vaccines. That was the same year he orchestrated a petition against “misinformation” about vaccination, while his organization honored GSK’s first CEO. Hotez organized a GSK-funded meeting on bioterrorism that included vaccine industry talking head Paul Offit and pervert Thomas Frieden.

Also honored by Hotez’s front group that year was Stanley “Vaccine Soros” Plotkin. He is inventor of the rubella vaccine in the autism-causing measles-mumps-rubella vaccine.

Hotez remained with Sabin Vaccine Institute until he stepped down as president just last year. Conveniently, that was when he announced he would be writing the book Vaccines Did Not Cause Rachel’s Autism. Authoring the book’s forward is Arthur Caplan, three-year bio”ethics” advisory committee chair at GlaxoSmithKline. Rachel Hotez is totally Glaxploited.

You know who the biggest target of Glaxploitation is though? Hannah Poling. GlaxoSmithKline wants her medical records like a mosquito wants blood. GSK also has much of the autism community unwittingly helping.

GlaxoSmithKline Engineered Eli Lilly Thimerosal Protection Rider

In November 2002, an infamous rider was slipped into the Homeland Security Act which sought to shield former thimerosal maker Eli Lilly from litigation. But Lilly was not the pharmaceutical company behind the provision, European pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline was. The move enabled GSK to escape scrutiny over its toxic vaccinations. In GSK’s place was a company that had not made the mercury-based vaccine preservative for a decade and had not made childhood vaccines since the seventies.

Shielding Lilly from thimerosal litigation was done to protect vaccine manufacturers that use thimerosal, like GlaxoSmithKline. The rider was originally intended for a vaccine compensation bill pushed by then-Senator Bill Frist one year prior in response to rising lawsuits. His health policy adviser told Robert F. Kennedy Jr. in 2005:

“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.”

Although Frist received major contributions from Eli Lilly, he consistently enjoyed much greater financial support from GlaxoSmithKline. For the first five years that the thimerosal issue was raging, the company was Frist’s twelfth biggest campaign contributor. Merck was number 100. Lilly didn’t even make the top 100.

He was also far from GlaxoSmithKline’s only beneficiary. In mid-2002, GlaxoSmithKline was chief corporate sponsor of a GOP fundraiser in Washington headlined by President Bush.

Ultimately, Frist agreed to remove the rider from the law in January 2003. The repeal did not make Eli Lilly liable as all the thimerosal lawsuits would be forced into federal vaccine court anyway. However, the rider and subsequent fallout did help GlaxoSmithKline shirk public scrutiny.

The rider was slipped in two months before federal scientist-turned-GlaxoSmithKline employee Thomas Verstraeten submitted his thimerosal research for publication. The agreement to kill the rider happened just two weeks before Verstraeten’s submission. His earlier work for the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) had shown associations between thimerosal and autism. He then heavily manipulated his research to make those associations go away. Much of his earlier manipulation was done in a draft he presented at a secret meeting between CDC and drug companies including his future employer.

After the publication of GlaxoSmithKline fraud, Verstraeten published a letter asserting an all-out denial of any cover-up. Another Glaxo-supported doctor had just engineered a fraudulent coauthor retraction of the interpretation from the seminal 1998 autism-vaccine paper the month prior. Unlike the retraction, the Verstraeten letter never made big news.

Attention was diverted from the pharmaceutical company covering up thimerosal’s dangers to another pharmaceutical company that hadn’t made it in a decade. All of that company’s employees who first brought thimerosal to market 70 years earlier were long dead.

Meet Emma Walmsley, GlaxoSmithKline’s New Shampoo She-E-O

Emma Walmsley has only been CEO of GlaxoSmithKline for 18 months, but she’s already getting lots of publicity. Fortune Magazine just named her its most powerful woman. Yet the former L’Oreal exec’s entire pharma experience does not predate 2010 when she was first hired at GSK. In stark contrast, her predecessor who hired her had racked up 32 years at Glaxo, GlaxoWellcome and GlaxoSmithKline respectively by the time he retired. Big pharma’s first She-E-O is clearly nothing but a smokescreen.

Walmsley knows she’s inexperienced, asserting her lack of “pharma baggage” is an advantage. She is obviously not oblivious to GlaxoSmithKline’s problems. After all, a GSK-funded doctor who was knighted with her predecessor stole medical records of vaccine-injured children at his hospital. Her appointment was mere reputation management, a diversity diversion by a company run by crooks.

The announcement of her takeover was conveniently made before the 2016 election. GlaxoSmithKline wanted to shatter the pharmaceutical glass ceiling before Hillary Clinton broke the presidential one. Needless to say, the latter glass ceiling wasn’t shattered. Still, Walmsley took over in early 2017 not long after Clinton would have become president had she not lost.

What makes this promotion all the more remarkable is that Emma Walmsley is supposedly the mother of four children. That raises the question: who is raising her kids now?

She is married, but she couldn’t possibly fulfill her maternal role and run GlaxoSmithKline at the same time. Either she is a corporate figurehead or an absentee mother. Neither speaks well of her ethics, the lack of which clearly reflect her crooked company.

GlaxoSmithKline has threatened journalists into becoming its opposition researchers and bullied scientists into retracting their own work on the dangers of its vaccines. Whatever her actual involvement is in running the company, Walmsley has chosen to attach her name to Glaxo. That speaks volumes all by itself.

Sir Mark Pepys Was Knighted with GlaxoSmithKline CEO in 2012

Sir Andrew Witty, CEO of GlaxoSmithKline 2008-2017, The Irish Times

Glaxo-funded Mark Pepys was knighted with GlaxoSmithKline’s CEO in 2012. That was after Pepys forced autism-vaccine scientist Andrew Wakefield out of his job, forced his coauthors to retract and leaked vaccine-injured children’s medical records to an opposition researcher. Pepys was knighted for “services” to biomedicine. Witty was knighted for “services to the economy and to the UK pharma industry.”

GSK’s Andrew Witty knighted

Published on 03/01/12 at 11:31am

GlaxoSmithKline chief executive Andrew Witty and former ABPI director general Richard Barker were among the recipients in the 2012 New Year Honours List.

Witty was knighted for services to the economy and to the UK pharma industry, while Barker – who stepped down from his post in June – received an OBE for his work in the pharma sphere.

Elsewhere, there were knighthoods for John Buchanan, chairman of medical devices company Smith & Nephew, for services to industry.

In keeping with the government’s insistence that this year’s Honours were also about ‘local heroes’, there were gongs for people working in less high profile parts of the healthcare sector.

Christine Mills, founder of the cancer charity Hope for Tomorrow, whose fundraising efforts led to the UK’s first mobile chemotherapy unit, received an MBE – as did Terence Monaghan, who set up Stock Cares, a transport service that takes vulnerable residents in Essex to essential health appointments.

Six GPs also got awards, including OBEs for William Cunningham of Corbridge Health Centre in Northumberland and James Kingsland, president of the National Association of Primary Care.

Academics in health and medicine were well-represented in the list: Professor Stephen Bloom, head of diabetes and endocrinology at Imperial College London was knighted for services to medical science.

And Professors John Sissons of the University of Cambridge and Mark Pepys of University College London Medical School received knighthoods for services to research and education in clinical medicine, and to biomedicine, respectively.

There was also an OBE for Gideon Ben-Tovim, chair of Liverpool NHS Primary Care Trust, for services to health.

Congress Knew Andrew Zimmerman Opinion was Non-Starter in 2013

There is nothing in Dr. Andrew Zimmerman’s opinions on autism that could help unresolved vaccine injury cases. Congress knows that, which is why it cancelled a planned hearing into the so-called Zimmerman issue five years ago. Autism Investigated  broke that news.

Yet there is now a resurgent effort to get Congress, the Justice Department and as many Amazon customers as possible interested in this total non-story. The father of a vaccine-injured girl is even being compelled to testify about her medical history before Congress.

Never mind that her parents completely objected to the release of her medical records five years ago. There is no reason to believe they’d feel any differently. There is every reason to believe they would be even more opposed to her private medical history being cross-examined by politicians.

This is not the autism community’s strongest case. It is not even a case. It’s a total dead horse being beaten over and over again by armchair advocates. They’re making a pretty penny off it too.

Apparently, the only new information is that Andrew Zimmerman said his expert opinion against one vaccine injury case shouldn’t have been used against others. That’s it. Two federal attorneys tried to milk his testimony for all it was worth. Shocker.

Wait there’s more… He also acknowledged that vaccines could cause autism in rare cases, just not in any that his opinion was used against at the time he gave it!

Unbelievable what some people will fall for, especially in light of what they’ll ignore.

Just remember folks, Dr. Andrew Zimmerman is no Dr. Andrew Wakefield. And the Department of Justice lawyers Zimmerman is only now whining about are no Sir Medical-Record Leaksalot Dr. Mark Pepys. Let’s also not be like him and respect the confidentiality of disabled children.

Non-Profit Co-Founder Ousted By Vaccination Ideology He Supported

Cochrane Gøtzsche

Founder of non-profit Cochrane Collaboration Dr. Peter Gøtzsche, John McDougall YouTube

“We acknowledge the concerns that groups ideologically opposed to vaccination may exploit scientific uncertainties or propagate fraudulent research, e.g. Andrew Wakefield and co-workers’ unfounded claim that the measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine can cause autism. However, this does not mean that we should not openly discuss and investigate possible harms of vaccines in a misguided attempt to protect their reputation.” – Gøtzsche et al. to the European Ombudsman, November 2, 2017

What Peter Gøtzsche claimed to denounce in the second sentence is exactly what happened to Dr. Andrew Wakefield and what has just happened to Gøtzsche himself. A co-founder of the non-profit Cochrane Collaboration and director of the Nordic Cochrane Centre has been evicted from the board of the organization he helped establish after publishing critically on the HPV vaccine. Sound familiar?

Wakefield’s GlaxoSmithKline-funded ex-boss Mark Pepys admitted, “We paid him to leave.” Then Pepys forced Wakefield’s coauthors into a retractionsabotaged vaccine injury litigation in the United Kingdom and leaked medical records to a freelance opposition researcher.

Yet the victim, according to Gøtzsche as recently as last May, is the opposition researcher who illegally obtained disabled children’s medical records (translated from Danish):

“He (Wakefield) is a fraud. And it is quite unreasonable that people are shooting at Brian Deer who revealed it. He has made a sober contribution, and BMJ’s chief editor also calls Wakefield’s study a fraud. It takes a lot for an editor-in-chief to say such things. I have nothing more to say.”

It takes a lot of Merck and Glaxo money to say such things. That’s the same editor who ironically cites Wakefield not joining his coauthors in the fraudulent, Pepys-forced retraction as evidence of fraud. But Gøtzsche probably thought he could insulate himself from attack by throwing Wakefield under the bus. Sorry doc, doesn’t work like that.

Either you can criticize any vaccination or none at all. Either all doctors are safe from pharmaceutical industry retaliation or none are. Obviously, no one is safe. Wakefield was the rule, not the exception. Criticizing vaccinations brings you into “disrepute” no matter who you are.

Too bad Peter Gøtzsche didn’t get the memo before he was ousted from his own non-profit organization. GlaxoSmithKline wants to profit off all its drugs and vaccines. The doctor is no economist. He’s also no crusader against the pharmaceutical industry, just an opportunistic hypocrite.

Pharma Puppet Who Ejected Wakefield Was Behind Murch Retraction


“I said I wouldn’t transfer my unit if he was there.” “We paid him to leave.” – Sir Mark Pepys on autism-vaccine scientist Dr. Andrew Wakefield

A doctor heavily backed by GlaxoSmithKline who took credit for Dr. Andrew Wakefield leaving the Royal Free Hospital made his coauthors fraudulently retract the interpretation in his paper. Seven of the 10 coauthors were working for Royal Free when they signed their names to the statement, including lead turncoat Simon Murch. Wakefield even predicted the Royal Free hierarchy would force Murch’s retraction months before.

Years after Pepys orchestrated the fraudulent retraction, he tried to orchestrate an “investigation” against Wakefield’s research. In response, Wakefield wrote a letter to University College London later published in his book Waging War on the Autistic Child that revealed a history of Pepys’ dishonesty and bribery (boldface mine):

I understand from his statements on BBC Radio 4, that Professor Mark Pepys is to conduct an investigation of my research while at the Royal Free Hospital School of Medicine. May I suggest that he is not a good choice for this task, for the following reasons:

1. He has a real conflict of interest-having initially declined his appointment at the Royal Free until I had been removed. The following are extracts from Professor Pepys’ attendance note with Kate Emmerson of Field Fisher Waterhouse, the GMC’s lawyers, on 12th April 2005. 

“He [Pepys] accepted the job on the condition that Wakefield was removed (this didn’t happen).”

“MP would have dismissed W but others at the Royal Free were unwilling to do so. MP was really the only person at the Free who was putting forward anti-W views.”

2. Having taken up this appointment, (his above condition having been rejected [Pepys’ bluff had been called]), in the company of the Dean and the School Secretary, he confirmed to me that, despite having strong negative opinions about my research, he had never actually read any of it.

3. A book is due to be published later this year covering Professor Pepys’ activities in relation to my work. It will allege, supported by documentary evidence, conspiracy to execute a bribe with a senior academic from another institution in order to destroy peer-reviewed grant-awarded research looking at vaccine safety. This book will unfortunately be a source of major embarrassment for UCL and The Royal Free. May I suggest you ask Professor Pepys to provide you with his email traffic from the relevant period October 1999 to 2002? This traffic has already been examined by third parties. 

4. Professor Pepys’ extreme bias against me has been evident throughout my dealings with him. He expressed this in public in his Harverian oration, as well as on the BBC.

5. He is deeply conflicted due to his relationship with vaccine manufacturers GlaxoSmithKline. He is totally unsuited to lead any investigation of my research.

Pepys is now leading GlaxoSmithKline vaccine trials. How could any patient possibly enroll in a vaccine trial led by this guy when he promotes covering up vaccine side-effects?

Any decent human being should demand that any drug trial led by Sir Mark Pepys be shut down.
