Autism People: Do Not Honor The Andrew Wakefield Turncoat Doctors

Professor John Walker-Smith receives flowers from one of the children he betrayed, Professor John Walker-Smith Facebook Page

John Walker-Smith is the most senior turncoat author of the 1998 landmark autism-vaccine paper to retract his name from the interpretation that vaccines may cause autism. Yet, there remains a Facebook page in his honor dedicated by parents of the vaccine-injured children he betrayed. It stands at 1,301 likes strong. It should fold immediately.

The page was set up to support John Walker-Smith against disciplinary findings against him and two coauthors. However, the entire event was a show trial that deliberately targeted the doctors for scrutinizing a vaccine. The whole hearing should have been boycotted by everyone, including by lead author Andrew Wakefield.

But people showed up to support not only Wakefield, but Walker-Smith and lead turncoat author Simon Murch too. Walker-Smith and Murch were greeted with flowers and hugs.

Why? Walker-Smith and Murch may have been caring doctors at one time, but all the good they did was undone by their interpretation “retraction.”

Why is Age of Autism’s John Stone friends with John Walker-Smith on Facebook? Why did Stone use his platform to hock both Walker-Smith’s and lead turncoat author Simon Murch’s books? He has not responded to Autism Investigated’s criticism, nor has the Walker-Smith Facebook group.

The Wakefield turncoat doctors deserve no accolades, only scorn.

Wakefield Turncoat Authors Committed The Research Fraud

“the possibility of such a link was raised and consequent events have had major implications for public health…we should together formally retract the interpretation placed upon these findings” – 10 of the 13 coauthors of Andrew Wakefield’s paper.

Yes, you’ve read that correctly.

It is true that coauthors of the landmark 1998 vaccine-autism paper committed research fraud. They don’t include lead author Andrew Wakefield, however. They are the 10 coauthors who wrote the “retraction of an interpretation” led by Simon Murch.

The interpretation they “retracted” was of the possibility that vaccines cause autism. Their excuse? “Major implications for public health.”

That’s right, vaccines couldn’t possibly cause autism because people stopped vaccinating. That’s what they’re literally saying. It’s total nonsense unsupported by any “precedent” in academic publishing. Autism is a perfectly valid reason to stop vaccinating, anyway.

Their basis would then be used verbatim in disciplinary charges against two coauthors for publishing critically on vaccines. One of those coauthors also signed the “retraction.” Three coauthors in all were charged, including lead “retractor” Simon Murch. Yet people still showed up at the General Medical Council “fitness-to-practice” hearings to support two of the Wakefield turncoat authors.

The whole hearing should have been boycotted by anti-vaccinationists and vaccine skeptics including Wakefield himself. None of the Wakefield turncoat authors should have ever been defended after they signed their names to that statement.

Since when were a bunch of gastroenterologists, pathologists, a radiologist and a shrink an authority on what you can or cannot read? Since never, they signed their names at the coercion of the medical journal. They also didn’t want to lose their licenses, as two of them almost did and as Wakefield actually did.

None of that is a good excuse.

Over the years, Autism Investigated has written extensively about how the journal should restore the retracted 1998 paper. On reflection, it was a mistake since its restoration wouldn’t get rid of the other bogus “retraction” by the 10 coauthors themselves. So the paper is better left retracted anyway.

Now here is the shameful statement by Simon Murch and the other nine Wakefield turncoat authors in all its disgusting glory.

Lancet

PERVERT ALERT: CDC DIRECTOR FRIEDEN ARRESTED FOR SEX ASSAULT

Move over Ian Lipkin, Obama’s CDC director just topped you big time:

Tom Frieden, the former head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and an ex-New York City Health Commissioner, has been arrested amid allegations he sexually harassed a woman in his Brooklyn apartment.

Police confirmed to Fox News that Frieden, 57, surrendered to the NYPD’s Special Victims Unit at the 77th precinct Friday and has been charged with forcible touching, sexual abuse and harassment.

The charges stem from allegations he groped a woman he knew last October at his home in Brooklyn Heights, ABC7 reported.

This is a married man with two children they’re talking about.

Just before the 2016 election, Frieden blocked a CDC employee from testifying about CDC’s cover-up of the vaccine-autism link.

Last year, Dr. Frieden tweeted a suggestion that autism-vaccine scientist Andrew Wakefield should be prosecuted criminally.

How perfect that Dr. Frieden is prosecuted criminally instead. We should show up at his trial to protest his degeneracy. This is not someone who should be let off lightly. He’s responsible for poisoning many children and his immorality shows through perfectly in this case.

Oppose Vaccination Entirely Since Proponents Call for Cover-up

iansvoice.org

Hear it from the very words of the vaccine people/medical establishment on what to do with evidence of their product’s assault on kids:

Lancet editor on not publishing vaccine injuries on pretense that they’re by expert witnesses in litigation, 2004:

“But had we known about the conflict of interest, with hindsight, we would have asked for this to be omitted.”

Complaint against Lancet authors to UK’s General Medical Council, demanding it single out the lead author for criticizing a vaccine:

I submit that on a matter as serious as the safety of a vaccine, touching on the health of millions of children, and affecting parental decisions of the utmost seriousness, Mr Wakefield was under an absolute duty to make the true position clear, with regard to both his involvement in the litigation and the litigant status of children upon whom he purported to derive findings.

General Medical Council’s 2010 “findings” against Lancet paper authors, based on 2005 charges:

You knew or ought to have known that your reporting in the Lancet paper of a temporal link between the syndrome you described and the MMR vaccination, Admitted and found proved i. had major public health implications, Admitted and found proved ii. would attract intense public and media interest, Admitted and found proved

Paul Offit in NY Times, 2018:

Dr. Offit says that researchers should handle findings differently when there’s a chance they might frighten the public. He thinks that small, inconclusive, worrying studies should not be published because they could do more harm than good.

That same article (boldface mine):

This is not to say that anyone is covering up major safety problems, by the way…

There’s no question that bad vaccine science does not deserve a forum — and much of the research cited by anti-vaccine activists is very bad indeed.

WHO adviser John Clements on thimerosal (Simpsonwood, 2000):

“perhaps this study should not have been done at all…the research results have to be handled”

David Gorski, a.k.a. “Orac” agreeing with Clements’ keeping results out of the hands of lawyers for vaccine injured children, 2005:

Dr. Clements was just expressing a quite reasonable fear that lawyers will use very preliminary and unconfirmed studies for their own ends, which is what they do indeed routinely do. Such a concern was not at all unreasonable and is still not unreasonable.

Forbes 2015 headline:

Anti-Vaccine Doctors Should Lose Their Licenses 

And just look at this internal pharma company memo from 1979:

After the reporting of the SID cases in Tennessee, we discussed the merits of limiting distribution of a large number of vials from a single lot to a single state, county or city health department and obtained agreement from the senior management staff to proceed with such a plan. 

What did they get in exchange for murdering infants? Total immunity from litigation!

Should we support any vaccines when their proponents continue to openly censor evidence that they assault and murder kids? Or should we oppose vaccination entirely?

Autism Investigated is going with the latter.

Paul Offit Denies Supporting Cover-up of Vaccine Risks, By Doing Just That

Left: Graph based on results of the study Offit claims showed no difference in autism among hundreds of thousands of Danish children who did or did not get the measles-mump-rubella vaccination. Right: Offit’s reaction to being corrected by the editor at NIH, culminating in the editor’s removal.

Vaccine developer Paul Offit responded to a recent New York Times piece by denying he advocated covering up vaccine risks, only to cover them up in his own piece. The doctor who lied until very recently that he was still “chief” of infectious diseases despite his hospital demotion four years ago consistently lied about three different vaccine side-effects: miscarriage, autism and narcolepsy.

On the CDC’s study showing flu vaccine causes spontaneous abortion, Offit lied:

the only way that the study authors could show a possible problem was to alter their original hypothesis and substratify their data—something that epidemiologists frown upon.

The study itself says:

“The overall adjusted odds ratio (aOR) was 2.0 (95% CI, 1.1–3.6)”

The overall odds of receiving a flu vaccine while pregnant was twice as high among pregnant women who had spontaneous abortions. Offit repeated this same lie that there was no difference from his Daily Beast column. Autism Investigated demanded a retraction at the time, none was ever made.

On the link between vaccines and autism, Offit wrote:

Seventeen subsequent studies in seven countries on three different continents involving hundreds of thousands of children[9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,20,21,22,23,24,25] who did or did not receive the MMR vaccine showed that it doesn’t cause autism.

The one study comparing autism in hundreds of thousands of MMR vaccinated and non-MMR vaccinated children revealed an association (top graph).

On the link between flu vaccination and narcolepsy, Offit lied yet again:

In 2015, a study in Science Translational Medicine[26] claimed that an adjuvanted influenza vaccine used in Europe had caused narcolepsy, a permanent disorder of wakefulness. Subsequent research showed that the adjuvanted vaccine didn’t cause narcolepsy. This was yet another study that had received widespread media attention but was wrong.

From none other than the CDC website:

This risk was initially found in Finland, and then some other European countries also detected an association. Most recently, scientists at the United Kingdom’s (UK) Health Protection Agency (HPA) have found evidence of an association between Pandemrix and narcolepsy in children in England. The findings are consistent with studies from Finland and other countries.

Offit proves he wants to cover up vaccine risks all the more by concluding about publishing them:

In the name of transparency, we do it all the time. And we do it at our peril.

What we really do at our peril is form federal committees that promote routine vaccination to the entire country and have liars like Offit sit on them.

Tdap Vaccine Study Provides More Evidence That Flu Vaccine Causes ASD

Controlling for influenza vaccination makes Tdap vaccine during pregnancy look protective from ASD, Source: Becerra-Culqui et al., Pediatrics, Table 3

Whenever they try to clear vaccines of causing autism, the vaccine people implicate them more. The latest fairy tale evidence used in favor of vaccination is yet more evidence implicating influenza vaccination in autism spectrum disorder.

Flu vaccination(circled) during pregnancy was one of the variables most strongly associated with Tdap vaccination during pregnancy, Source: Becerra-Culqui et al., Pediatrics, Figure 2

Last year, another large study by the health insurance industry showed influenza vaccination during pregnancy was associated with an increased ASD risk. This year, a study of Tdap ironically did the same by showing that not getting a flu vaccine was associated with a decreased risk for ASD among children whose pregnant mothers got the Tdap vaccine.

While the association was a decreased risk of 15%, last year’s influenza vaccine study showed a risk for ASD as high as 25% for first-trimester influenza vaccination.

Zerbo et al., JAMA Pediatrics, Table 3

The Tdap study is the second ASD-vaccine cohort study by Kaiser Permanente and the third by the insurance industry in the last three years. It is abundantly clear that as the increase in ASD continues, the insurance companies are increasingly going to have to pick up the tab. The doctors and drug companies are shielded from the litigation. The government won’t compensate for the ASD cases it caused. So the burden now falls on the health insurance industry.

And of course, the insurance industry gets pharma funding for vaccine studies. It is also a partner in the CDC’s Vaccine Safety Datalink Project. Finally, influenza vaccinations still contain the mercury-based preservative thimerosal.

British Medical Board Charged Doctors with Criticizing Toxic Vaccines

GMC charge against Dr. Andrew Wakefield and Prof. John Walker-Smith for what they published in the medical journal The Lancet

Thank goodness for the First Amendment. Unfortunately, no such freedom exists in the United Kingdom. The country’s national medical board has banned doctors from criticizing toxic vaccination. The above quoted finding against two doctors for doing just that says it all. Both doctors were ordered to be struck off.

The General Medical Council is funded by annual fees paid for by every doctor it registers. Therefore, every doctor in the UK pays for the statewide ban on criticizing vaccination. Meanwhile in the US, nearly every major medical group along with the NIH and CDC have endorsed the General Medical Council’s purge.

Fortunately, it’s still not so easy for state medical boards here to carry out what the General Medical Council did. The vaccine industry is working hard to change that, however.

Maryland’s state medical board was ordered to pay $2.5 million to autism-vaccine scientist Dr. Mark Geier after its Watergate-likened conspiracy against him. California stopped short of revoking Dr. Robert Sears’ license for saving a child from toxic vaccination, but is hellbent on keeping him on probation for his entire career. California’s actions were made possible by a state law revoking all vaccine exemptions from federally pushed vaccines.

National vaccine programs the world over take orders directly from vaccine developers: doctors of doom like MMR co-developer Stanley “Vaccine Soros” Plotkin. They also indoctrinate doctors in medical schools worldwide. Therefore, it is the vaccine industry forbidding criticism about its toxic vaccines. This authoritarian, child-poisoning industry must be put out of business.

How The UK’s Medical “Protection” Society Baited A Leading Autism-Vaccine Scientist into A Show Trial Attacking His Free Speech

Drs. Andrew and Carmel Wakefield outside UK’s General Medical Council the day of its “findings” against him, Zimbio

The UK’s General Medical Council (GMC) charged Dr. Andrew Wakefield with publishing critically on vaccination. So GMC needed to ensure he wouldn’t boycott its show trial for obviously attacking his free speech. That’s what the Medical “Protection” Society (MPS) was good for. The MPS is an organization that purports to defend doctors from malpractice allegations in Britain. MPS funded Dr. Wakefield’s “defense” against the General Medical Council, but it really wasn’t a “defense” at all.

His so-called defense should have never made him “defend” himself against the “crime” of publishing on the vaccine-autism link. Even worse, MPS even got him to falsely say he should have gotten ethical approval to take blood from his own children at his son’s birthday party. They subsequently enabled Dr. Wakefield to be punished for making a joke about it in America, never mind the First Amendment. Not surprisingly, inquiries to the lawyer MPS paid to “represent” Dr. Wakefield have gone unanswered.

After the GMC’s “findings” against him were made, MPS cut funding to his appeal in order to make them stick. Of course a major medical defense organization believes publishing critically about vaccination is wrong. After all, it has many other doctors to defend who poison children into autism with vaccinations everyday. So it had to “defend” Dr. Wakefield and then throw him under the bus to protect all of its Hippocratic Oath-violating “doctors.”

On a happier note, Autism Investigated will now share Dr. Wakefield’s hilarious birthday party blood joke for readers to laugh with. Thank you Dr. Wakefield for your humor and thank you YouTuber Anthony Cox for sharing!

FDA Chief: Expert Witnesses of Vaccine Injury Shouldn’t Publish Papers

Despite claiming to have “empathy” for autism families, FDA commissioner Scott Gottlieb has none. The FDA chief who gave false testimony to Congress about vaccines believes vaccine injury experts should be summarily censored. He also believes expert witnesses to vaccine injury should not be allowed to publish their findings.

In 2009, Gottlieb wrote that the vaccine-autism link should be summarily dismissed to protect vaccines:

Fears about autism have been a growing impediment to higher vaccination rates – and thus a growing public-health danger. 

In that same article, Gottlieb also supported the campaign to censor publications by expert witnesses to vaccine injury:

[Andrew Wakefield’s] original research on this issue was already controversial – 10 of the 13 authors retracted some of the findings in 2004, but Wakefield, its lead author, has not.

The “retraction” happened when the editor of The Lancet decided that expert witnesses to vaccine injury should not be allowed to publish on vaccines. That editor Richard Horton then bullied those 10 coauthors into signing a statement supporting combined measles-mumps-rubella vaccination. Gottlieb cites this “retraction” as evidence against the paper.

Now he has barred his senior staff from meeting with Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and other proponents of a vaccine safety commission.

Regardless, Scott Gottlieb should not be FDA chief because he should play no role in promoting products his agency regulates.

He is also one of the doctors who lies about vaccine dangers.

TOP ITALIAN SCIENTIST PUNCHED IN THE FACE BY VACCINE MAFIA

Dr. Stefano Montanari, PandoraTV

Dr. Stefano Montanari was punched in the face by a vaccine thug while talking to parents of vaccine-injured children. Previously, Dr. Montanari and his wife Dr. Antonietta Gatti did research finding that vaccines are contaminated by micro-and-nanoparticles. Their laboratory was already raided and their materials have been seized. He writes in a desperate letter to the United States below:

While I was cordially talking with these people, suddenly, for no apparent reason, a gentleman came up behind me shouting “Don’t dare raise your voice!” I turned my head and, in a fraction of a second, unexpectedly, he hit me with a violent punch between my ear and my cheekbone. For a moment I lost my senses and I was supported by those around me, while the character was moving away, crossing my wife who, meanwhile, was coming out on the sidewalk. To her, that gentleman shouted a death threat.

What Dr. Montanari describes is coming to America. Scientists here have been targeted for their research on vaccinations. A doctor has received a death threat from someone who said he plans to massacre anti-vaccinationists, and the FBI blamed her. It’s only a matter of time until what happened to Dr. Montanari starts happening in America.

Other disturbing issues in the letter are signs that the government will renege on its promise to overturn mandatory vaccination law. The Minister of the Interior Matteo Salvini made statements supporting Dr. Montanari, only to face a full-out assault by the fake news media and political elite. God bless Minister Salvini for putting Italians first!
