Video: BMJ Editor Humiliated After Calling Autism-Vaccine Link a Fraud

At the NIH, the editor-in-chief of the BMJ Fiona Godlee gets stumped on video after calling the vaccine-autism link an “elaborate fraud.” BMJ Group was also sponsored by Merck and GlaxoSmithKline, pharmaceutical companies that made measles-mumps-rubella vaccines – a fact Godlee claimed she didn’t know. The university that initially launched an investigation based on her allegations has since dumped Godlee’s concerns:

“the net result [from an investigation] would likely be an incomplete set of evidence and an inconclusive process costing a substantial sum of money.”

Godlee has also tried to petition UK parliament, for which she was quickly rebuffed. But years later, a whistleblower from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention confirmed that it was the people who tried to dispute an association between autism and vaccinations who committed fraud. They threw evidence linking the two into a “huge garbage can.” Here is a larger excerpt of what the whistleblower said, read by Congressman Bill Posey:

“All the authors and I met and decided sometime between August and September ’02 not to report any race effects from the paper. Sometime soon after the meeting we decided to exclude reporting any race effects, the coauthors scheduled a meeting to destroy documents related to the study. The remaining four coauthors all met and brought a big garbage can into the meeting room and reviewed and went through all the hard-copy documents that we had thought we should discard and put them in a huge garbage can. However, because I assumed it was illegal and would violate both FOIA and DoJ requests, I kept hard copies of all documents in my office and I retained all associated computer files. I believe we intentionally withheld controversial findings from the final draft of the Pediatrics paper.”

Autism Investigated Shuts Down Bernie Sanders, Censorship Candidate

BN-MG647_Bernie_DV_20160125145318

I think the evidence is overwhelming that vaccines do not cause autism. And it really is a little bit weird for Trump – who, I presume, has no medical background – to be raising this issue. And obviously it is a concern. When somebody like that says it, you’re gonna find thousands of people now who are gonna hesitate to give their kids the shots, and bad things may happen. – Bernie Sanders, The Rachel Maddow Show, September 17, 2015

Donald Trump is the only good presidential candidate on the vaccine issue, that’s why Autism Investigated endorses him. However, there is only one candidate who trashed Trump for speaking out for vaccine safety despite similar concerns expressed by the two doctors in the same GOP debate, who calls for censorship of the issue, who said the evidence against vaccines causing autism is “overwhelming” despite being approached with the overwhelming evidence for an association by Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and another physician and who even called unvaccinated children killers. That candidate is far-left extremist, race-baiting demagogue, Democratic Party presidential candidate and ice cream flavor poster boy Bernie Sanders. And because he encourages censorship, any comments of support for his candidacy will not be allowed at Autism Investigated from here on out.

Look at a quote from him on his Senate page: “if I have a kid who is suffering from an illness who is subjected to a kid who walks into a room without vaccines that could kill that child and that’s wrong.” For someone so concerned about protecting children who would have adverse reactions to vaccines, he sure does not think it is wrong for children to be needlessly poisoned as a result of the vaccine program’s lies.

At the time Sanders made that statement, the governor of Sanders’ home state of Vermont said he would veto any bill that would rid the state of its philosophical vaccination exemption. But two days after Sanders formally announced his presidential candidacy in the Democratic Party primary on May 26th, the governor signed into law a bill that did just that – making Vermont the first state to repeal its philosophical vaccine exemption. California would shortly follow.

Most bizarrely about Bernie Sanders, he seems to be surprisingly well-liked among vaccine skeptics considering he’s a bona fide vaccine liar. The managing editor for the self-styled vaccine safety and Democrat-edited blog Age of Autism actually wrote that “Sanders represent[s] a chink in the armor of the status quo” of censorship, even though he called for censorship of this issue. Even more disturbing is how Autism Investigated has come under fire by Bernie supporters on Facebook for supporting Trump. And when you remind them what Bernie Sanders has said, they completely dismiss it. Here is what one person responded when Autism Investigated pointed out that Sanders likened Republican candidates to mental patients and trashed Trump for speaking out for safer vaccines:

Trump IS crazy…so Sanders sayingthat isn’t really mocking…it would be stating facts..I know as a Trump supporter…those are something you don’t ever get to hear…facts!

When this post about Trump reiterating his stance for vaccine safety in a recent interview was shared in the vaccine skeptic Facebook group AWAKE California, a Bernie troll came in and called people “fascists” and “bigots” for supporting Trump before she was finally banned. The lies that Trump is a bigot, racist or fascist are commonly pushed by Sanders and his supporters, who have also backed the violent shutdown of Trump’s rally in Chicago. One of Sanders’ terrorists even tried to rush Trump on stage in Ohio before being stopped by Secret Service. If Sanders’ supporters have done all this, it’s not difficult to imagine them infiltrating vaccine skeptic forums to mislead people into thinking Sanders is a good candidate when he is the polar opposite.

The bottom line, however, is this: any candidate who supports shutting down the only candidate who supports vaccine safety and discussion of vaccine safety altogether does not deserve a forum of support on any website that supports vaccine safety and certainly not in Autism Investigated’s comments, Twitter feed or Facebook threads. When DailyKos banned linking vaccines to autism in its discussion threads, Autism Investigated responded by banning any comments that link to Kos to prevent readers from posting over there only to be banned for their views. Autism Investigated will do the same here by trashing any comments and blocking any Twitter accounts that post anything supportive of Bernie Sanders in AI’s discussions.

That said, anybody can still comment here regardless of which candidate they support, just take your support for the ice cream man elsewhere. For example: if you submit a comment citing leftist blogs like HuffPo and Salon to falsely portray Sanders as some sort of crusader against big pharma even though both sites actively censor vaccine safety, your comment will be canned. There are plenty of places like the Age of Autism blog where you are more than welcome to advertise your support for Sanders, as that site already has a habit of praising the horrible candidates who are the Democrats with its nauseatingly obsequious outreach to Hillary Clinton.

If you are upset that you are being “censored” for your support of Bernie Sanders, don’t be angry with Autism Investigated. Be angry with Sanders for supporting censorship of this issue and causing this new rule to be imposed on all his supporters here at Autism Investigated. Big pharma has given him more money than any of the remaining Republican candidates for a reason. And in case you love Sanders so much that you have to see him pushing censorship of the vaccine issue to believe it, here is the video of him doing just that:

Bernie Sanders is now shut down at Autism Investigated. No feeling the Bern here.

Trump Backs Vaccine Safety, Calls Other Candidates “Bought”

478c50db-c48e-4802-a962-6c8e48a213cb-large16x9_Donald_Trump

A recent interview further highlights why Autism Investigated endorses Donald Trump for President. On April 3rd, investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson sat down with the Republican presidential front-runner. In that interview, he said,”there could be something to the theory that these massive doses that are given to children have an impact on autism” and that “we have to be very, very careful with vaccines.” He also said the other candidates are “controlled by special interests” and “bought off with campaign contributions.” As of March 21st, pharmaceutical manufacturers have given $215,477 to Hillary Clinton, $64,175 to Bernie Sanders, $63,018 to Ted Cruz, $7,625 to John Kasich despite being dead last and a measly $531 to Donald Trump.

Trump on Vaccines and Viewer Questions

Trump fielded a number of viewer questions during “Full Measure’s” Sunday sit-down. He was asked about his views on vaccinations, advice he gave to his children, advice he ignored from his children, mis-characterizations from the media and, simply, why he would make the best choice for president.

What’s your position on freedom of choice regarding various vaccines that could be dangerous for some children and why is the mere discussion of making vaccines safe censored?

“It’s the most unbelievable discussion I’ve ever been involved in. If you say anything about vaccines that is slightly like holding back the hate mail, the level of vitriol, it’s incredible when you see it. First of all, I’m a big believer in vaccines. But there could be something to the theory that these massive doses that are given to children have an impact on autism. There could be something to it. Now some people say no, some people say yes, I’d like to see studies. The bottom line is they have to get vaccinated. When I was going to school as a young guy, polio was a really big problem and vaccines knocked it out. So the vaccines are very important, but we have to study the vaccines and we have to be very, very careful with vaccines.”

What’s some of the most important advice you’ve given your kids?

“That’s an easy question. No alcohol. No drugs. No cigarettes.”

Is there advice you’ve been given sometime that you wish you would’ve taken that you didn’t take?

“Well, Ivanka [my daughter] and my wife Melania will say ‘now be presidential,’ because sometimes I’ll hit back very hard and it doesn’t sound presidential. But my retort to that is, if I didn’t, you know I started off with [17 Republican challengers] and we have two left. I have two left. And frankly, if I didn’t hit hard I think you’d be interviewing probably somebody else.”

What mis-characterizations has the media saddled you with?

“I think I’m a very nice person. I love people. I like to help people. And I think the media makes me look like a mean person. And I think I’m a nice person. I love people. I love to help people.”

Why do you think you should be elected president?

“Because I can do the best job. I’m the only one that will make America great again. I know the other candidates. They’ll never bring us to the promise land. They’ll never make great trade deals. They’ll never great with the military. They’re controlled by special interests. I’m not. Again, I’m not taking money from anybody. If I don’t win. I really see a lot of problems for the country. There’s some many problems for the country that a politician, number one, can’t solve, and number two, won’t solve because they’re bought off with campaign contributions.”

Contrast the above to what other candidates have said about vaccines, like what Democrat front-runner Hillary Clinton ($215,477 from pharma) tweeted:

The science is clear: The earth is round, the sky is blue, and #vaccineswork. Let’s protect all our kids. #GrandmothersKnowBest 

Ted Cruz ($63,018 from pharma), Trump’s main primary rival, told USA Today:

Of course children should be vaccinated, this issue is largely silliness stirred up by the media.

John Kasich ($7,625 from pharma) told Ohio’s Dayton Daily News:

You have to get vaccinated. This is not a choice. Are you kidding me?

The socialist and far-left extremist Bernie Sanders ($64,175 from pharma) who’s entire platform is more intrusive government like the corrupt vaccine program is the worst candidate of them all. In fact, he is the only candidate who actually criticized Trump for his stance on vaccines in an MSNBC interview with Rachel Maddow following the September GOP debate:

I think the evidence is overwhelming that vaccines do not cause autism. And it really is a little bit weird for Trump – who, I presume, has no medical background – to be raising this issue. And obviously it is a concern. When somebody like that says it, you’re gonna find thousands of people now who are gonna hesitate to give their kids the shots, and bad things may happen.

Yet Age of Autism’s managing editor was dumb enough to describe Sanders as “a chink in the armor of the status quo” of censorship, even though he openly supports censoring discussion of vaccine dangers. AoA has also praised Hillary’s “autism plan” with the vaccine debate-censoring Huffington Post and even expressed a desire to work with her. Worst of all, AoA has trashed Trump – repeatedly. They are guilty of continuously misinforming their readers about where the candidates stand on this issue, even though the right choice in this presidential race is more obvious than ever. If the issue of vaccine safety is an important enough issue to make or break a vote for any particular candidate, then the only candidate who deserves the vote is Donald Trump.

No Dr. Wakefield, Re-Licensure Should Be Your Priority

the-walking-dead-02

I will work on this when the time is right. Now my priority is the film. – Dr. Andrew Wakefield

He has become the zombie of the autism world, unwittingly eating alive any chance of federal child-poisoners facing justice. By promoting his new documentary film Vaxxed, Dr. Andrew Wakefield is single-handedly tarnishing credibility of Dr. William Thompson: the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) whistleblower who said his colleagues threw results linking autism to vaccinations in the garbage. That Wakefield’s film never even addresses the allegations against him while tainting the whistleblower story with his name makes him all the more damaging.

His film could be the best thing that ever happened to the vaccine industry – have the whistleblower from the CDC getting systematically dismissed simply because of who is promoting his story. Wakefield may think he is making progress because he is riling up his support base but that is all he is doing. He is not changing many more minds, and that’s because of who he is and has been subsequently held up to be by the media thanks to the revocation of his medical license. The only way to fix that is to immediately do what he said he plans on doing – get it back.

It is really quite simple, especially since the findings that got his license revoked in the first place were overturned four years ago. Every single person who wants people from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention indicted for their lies about vaccines not causing autism as much as Republicans want Hillary indicted for her lies about her emails should run far away from Wakefield until he actually goes through with what he said he will eventually do.

The credibility of those who cite the persistent lying of the federal vaccine program should not hinge on what one British doctor decides to do and on when he decides to do it. This issue is far greater than any one person. Besides, he’s not even the first person to conclude that vaccines do cause autism; it was someone from the CDC, making it all the more inappropriate for Wakefield to take ownership of that issue.

Shame on Wakefield for shirking re-licensure to continue to damage the credibility of the CDC whistleblower. And shame on pathetic excuses for vaccine safety websites like ageofautism.com for continuing to encourage him. Every person who cares about this issue should pressure Wakefield into doing what needs to be done to clear his name, especially his donors.

Andrew Wakefield Fights to Win Back Medical License

With all the attacks against de-licensed British doctor Andrew Wakefield by the scavengers of the media, one thing that gets lost is the fact that the findings on which the retraction of his paper and revocation of his medical license were based have been completely overturned. Wakefield is now looking to get his medical license back that the UK’s General Medical Council had taken from him over five years ago.

When faced with the fact that the findings used to justify the retraction were effectively disproved, the ombudsman of The Lancet – the journal that retracted Wakefield’s paper – Dr. Malcolm Molyneux admitted:

The retraction then mentions the enrolment [sic] procedure and ethical clearance, but implies that there remain other elements on which the decision was based.

The only accurate way to interpret Molyneux’s answer is that he tacitly acknowledges that the findings specifically mentioned to justify the paper’s retraction were overturned, but does not want to do anything about it or even revise the journal’s retraction statement. When pressed on what those “other elements” were that justified the paper’s retraction, Molyneux did not respond further.

Now that Andrew Wakefield is screening a film on the government’s cover-up of vaccines causing autism at the Tribeca Film Festival, I only wish he would include the unwarranted retraction of his paper in his Tribeca bio. I have been quite disappointed in Wakefield – from saying he insists on GMC’s witch trial against him and his colleagues to giving an interview with the pharma-conspiring New York Times, he has truly proven himself to be clueless about how to handle the scavengers’ attacks on him. Look at how pathetic his Tribeca film bio is:

Andrew Wakefield, MB.BS., is an academic gastroenterologist who practiced medicine at the Royal Free in the U.K. publishing over 140 scientific papers. In 1995, he was contacted by parents of autistic children with stomach issues; he learned that these conditions often occurred immediately following an MMR vaccine. In pursuit of this possible link, Dr. Wakefield led an initial study of twelve children with both stomach and developmental issues. The report, published in The Lancet, would catapult Wakefield into becoming one of the most controversial figures in the history of medicine. Vaxxed: From Cover-up to Controversy is his second film.

This is what it should really say:

Andrew Wakefield, MB.BS., is an academic gastroenterologist who practiced medicine at the Royal Free in the U.K. publishing over 140 scientific papers. In 1995, he was contacted by parents of autistic children with stomach issues; he learned that these conditions often occurred immediately following an MMR vaccine. His initial study of these children was retracted by The Lancet and his medical license was revoked because of disproved disciplinary findings that have now been completely overturned on appeal. Vaxxed: From Cover-up to Controversy is his second film.

Wakefield tells Autism Investigated that he is trying to get his medical license back, which is all the more appropriate now that the findings against him have been completely overturned by his colleague’s appeal. Yet he has never commented on whether he will even make a public statement about it. He most certainly should, especially now that his documentary on the CDC whistleblower story that he hijacked is being screened at Tribeca.

Update: Tribeca Film Festival pulled the documentary: “The Festival doesn’t seek to avoid or shy away from controversy. However, we have concerns with certain things in this film that we feel prevent us from presenting it in the Festival program. We have decided to remove it from our schedule.”

Footage from the film includes surreptitious recordings of Dr. William Thompson’s voice leaked by Wakefield as well as a silhouetted actor posing as Dr. Thompson.

Addendum: Last January, Autism Investigated sent the following question to the General Medical Council: “How do you justify keeping Dr. Andrew Wakefield de-licensed when all your findings against him have been overturned on appeal by his colleague, Prof. John Walker-Smith?”

The GMC replied with a signed letter that did not address the findings themselves, but did conclude: “a doctor can apply for restoration to the register in certain circumstances. We would then consider the doctor’s application, along with any further supporting evidence they provide, and determine whether to grant restoration to the register.”

More than five years has elapsed since Dr. Wakefield’s erasure, making him eligible to apply. Once he does, the GMC will have to consider his application along with “any further supporting evidence” he provides.

AI ENDORSES DONALD TRUMP TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN

hero_image_main_2

Autism has become an epidemic. Twenty-five years ago, 35 years ago, you look at the statistics, not even close. It has gotten totally out of control.

I am totally in favor of vaccines. But I want smaller doses over a longer period of time. Because you take a baby in — and I’ve seen it — and I’ve seen it, and I had my children taken care of over a long period of time, over a two or three year period of time.

Same exact amount, but you take this little beautiful baby, and you pump — I mean, it looks just like it’s meant for a horse, not for a child, and we’ve had so many instances, people that work for me.

Just the other day, two years old, two and a half years old, a child, a beautiful child went to have the vaccine, and came back, and a week later got a tremendous fever, got very, very sick, now is autistic.

I only say it’s not — I’m in favor of vaccines, do them over a longer period of time, same amount.

But just in — in little sections. I think — and I think you’re going to have — I think you’re going to see a big impact on autism. – Donald Trump, GOP Presidential Debate, September 16, 2015

Like Dr. Ben Carson and many others, Autism Investigated is proud to endorse Donald J. Trump for President of the United States. Some candidates have expressed far weaker statements in favor of vaccine skepticism only to wilt under pressure, but not Trump. The Republican frontrunner has stood firm on his vaccination stance – one he has vocally expressed for years. And unlike any of the other candidates, he has refused to take money from the pharmaceutical industry.

Autism Investigated’s admiration for Trump is only amplified by the overwhelming adversity facing his campaign: loud boos by lobbyists at televised debates, routine lies by scavengers that call themselves journalists, rallies disrupted and shut down by violent extremists who physically attack both Trump supporters and the police – blame for which is not surprisingly cast on Trump. All these efforts backfired.

Now there is a plot within the GOP to deny Trump the nomination at the Republican National Convention even if he enters with the most delegates and votes of any candidate. That is what his two remaining rivals are desperately banking on.

Should Trump secure the nomination, he will face a ruthless opponent who will go as far as lying to relatives of Americans murdered overseas by terrorists. In the likely event she does not get indicted for her illegal email server of classified information before the general election, she will be whom Trump faces in the ongoing presidential race. She is rightfully viewed as dishonest and untrustworthy by two-thirds of the American people. That candidate is Hillary Clinton.

Like Hillary, officials of the federal vaccine program who hide vaccine dangers also have a major email scandal on their hands in which their private correspondence totally contradicts what they tell the public. And like many of Trump’s adversaries, Hillary is equally dishonest about vaccines as well as being horribly conflicted with the pharmaceutical industry. Last year, she tweeted:

The science is clear: The earth is round, the sky is blue, and #vaccineswork. Let’s protect all our kids. #GrandmothersKnowBest 

That is easy to say for someone who received one-third of all presidential campaign contributions from the pharmaceutical industry for that year, far more than any other candidate. Hillary’s highly touted autism plan also draws heavily from the ideology of autistic “self-advocate” Ari Ne’eman. The wackiness of Ne’eman has included denying autism has even increased, trying to deny services intended to prevent severely afflicted children from wandering off and drowning, and accusing a Harvard economist of “eugenics” for estimating the financial cost one case could incur to society over the course of a lifetime. Like Obama, Hillary is certain to rely on Ne’eman for advice about autism policy should she be elected. She will also protect the vaccine program and those running it from any repercussions; she even repeatedly lied that gun manufacturers are the only industry immune from litigation when in fact vaccine manufacturers are the only industry with immunity from personal injury lawsuits.

A Hillary presidency would be as big a negative as a Trump presidency would be a positive. We must all stand with Trump as he prepares to defeat Hillary and make this country a better place for all.

Dr. Ben Carson Endorses Donald Trump for President

repubdebate09162015-197-tmagArticle

In a press conference yesterday, former GOP primary presidential candidate and retired pediatric neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson endorsed Donald Trump for president. In the September GOP debate, Dr. Carson was asked “Should Trump stop saying that vaccines are linked to autism?” Dr. Carson said that doctors are probably giving way too many vaccinations over too short a period of time. Donald Trump stood by his position that spacing out vaccinations would diminish autism rates.

Here is a statement from Dr. Carson:

Our country is at a crossroads and in the midst of a moral crisis. We must be careful not to continue our current path, which is littered with uncertainty at best and ruination at worst. We can make changes to our system and that change starts now with, “We the People.”

We can have disagreements, but it is critical that we not allow those disagreements to divide us as a party or as a country.

It is with that in mind that I endorse Donald Trump for President. I have known Donald for many years. He is a successful businessman who has built a recognizable global brand that no one can question. His experience as a businessman is exactly what we need to move our economic engine in the right direction and empower those who have been left out of the American dream for far too long.

With our support, I am sure that we can help restore America’s values and faith.

I know there will be some who want to underscore our differences and others will wish to return to statements he has made about me in the past, but that is politics. As a man of faith, all is forgiven and we have moved beyond the past, as the future is now.

Join me in supporting and rallying around the only candidate the GOP has that can defeat Hillary Clinton in 2016 and return America to that shining city on a hill.

Letting the Science Speak Against Mercury in Vaccines

Skyhorse Press

Skyhorse Press

Editor’s Note: Below is my review of Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s book “Thimerosal: Let the Science Speak” for The Epoch Times.

By Jake Crosby

Review: ‘Thimerosal: Let the Science Speak,’ Robert F. Kennedy Jr. (Skyhorse Press)

The vaccine preservative and title subject of the book “Thimerosal: Let the Science Speak” may not be as well-known as the book’s editor, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., an environmental lawyer and son of the late attorney general Robert F. Kennedy. Yet the public’s lack of knowledge about thimerosal is perhaps all the more reason why this book is so important, especially since the paperback edition (to be released Sept. 1) now contains 17 previously-written chapters that were excluded from the hardcover edition for being “too combustible,” according to Kennedy.

Roughly 50 percent mercury by weight, thimerosal is labeled “very toxic.” Mercury is the most toxic non-radioactive element on earth and second overall. One would think those facts would be enough to end its use in any medicine once and for all, but if that were the case this book would never have been written. Despite the toxicity of mercury, it remains present in many routine vaccinations in the form of thimerosal, and its ongoing use remains staunchly defended by the vaccine industry.

The book’s subtitle, “The Evidence Supporting the Immediate Removal of Mercury—a Known Neurotoxin—from Vaccines,” makes clear this book is more than just a case for why thimerosal is dangerous. Kennedy makes a compelling argument for vaccines to no longer contain thimerosal, from its toxicity, to its lack of necessity, to its association with neurodevelopmental disorders such as autism, and finally to the neglectful and even fraudulent attempts to hide that association by government agencies and media outlets.

As a result of mercury’s ongoing use in vaccines, “we are gambling with population health through the same intervention that we use to protect it,” as Harvard neurologist Dr. Martha Herbert concisely stated in the book’s introduction.

Some chapters such as the one on the biological basis for thimerosal causing autism contain scientific terms that may be difficult to follow without knowledge of college-level biology. Such is the challenge of making a case for causality of a behavioral disorder at the cellular level. Yet this is a challenge the book takes on commendably.

There is a new chapter on Dr. William Thompson, the senior scientist at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) who blew the whistle on his colleagues for hiding evidence of vaccines causing autism. There’s also a new forward by Congressman Bill Posey who recently read an explosive statement by Thompson to Congress.

The paperback edition of “Thimerosal: Let the Science Speak” has some of the same weaknesses as its hardcover predecessor. It is simply counter-intuitive to write a book outlining the proof for thimerosal’s role in causing autism only to cast doubt on that proof, as is done in the book’s preface by Dr. Mark Hyman. Kennedy and the other contributors to the book also still fall for the age-old trap of trying to prove they are not “anti-vaccine,” a burden no critic of the vaccine program should face or bother satisfying.

Overall, however, the book delivers well on its promise by making the case against the use of thimerosal in commonly administered, routine vaccinations by letting the science on the subject “speak” so to speak. That is something federal health agencies, media outlets and a myriad of special interests behind thimerosal’s continued use do not allow. For that reason, readers now have a unique opportunity to let the science supporting thimerosal’s immediate removal from vaccines speak to them by giving “Thimerosal: Let the Science Speak” a well-deserved read.

Relatives of Dr. Jeff Bradstreet Speak Out On Untimely Death

Brother and sister-in-law Thomas Bradstreet and Candice Lee-Bradstreet have spoken out on the recent and untimely passing of their relative: noted autism doctor, researcher and parent Dr. Jeff Bradstreet. In particular, they dispel a number of myths that have arisen following his death. Please support the Bradstreet Family’s fundraising effort to support an ongoing investigation into this tragedy.

From the description:

I am honored that the Bradstreet family sat down to talk with me about the beloved late MD; Dr. Jeffrey Bradstreet.

I didn’t know how they felt when I wrote the first story about his tragic death when he was found  in a river, with a gunshot wound to his chest, 7 weeks ago.  Shortly thereafter, more holistic doctors were found dead, mostly here in Florida and mostly holistic, some of whom we knew well.  I wrote the stories as tough as it was and we’re still waiting for answers.

I’ve been fortunate to talk with Bradstreets for a while now and they are nothing but an honest, sincere caring family and I cannot imagine how they must feel. I cannot even begin to understand the depth of their pain.  I am just honored that they trust me and opened up to me for this first interview ever.  Here we talk about Dr. Bradstreet and the man they knew as Jeff.  We also discuss GcMAF and many other topics. Please click on the youtube video above to listen.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Will Release Book With Original Omitted Autism Chapters

510xhtK4oQL

By Jake Crosby

On August 25th, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is finally releasing the paperback edition of his book “Thimerosal: Let the Science Speak” that “includes the original omitted chapters on the autism link.”

Kennedy’s decision to omit chapters was seen by some as running counter to the purpose of his book, namely to “let the science speak” on thimerosal’s harms. So Autism Investigated posted the complete version of his book that was previously obtained and that included the chapters on autism Kennedy had removed. (Those links have now been disabled and replaced with links to the Amazon listing of the paperback edition of his book that will contain the previously omitted autism chapters.)

The removal of chapters from Kennedy’s book was viewed by many as more suppression of evidence for thimerosal’s toxicity. The criticisms only escalated when it was discovered from the metadata of the manuscript file that one of the freelance writers helping Kennedy with his book had previously written in defense of thimerosal.

His decision upset many people, including longtime followers. “This makes me sad,” one advocate said of Kennedy. “He has always been such a proponent”.

Others expressed outrage, “He’s a Coward! Too much pressure from big Pharma” wrote another. “I agree,” someone else concurred, “it’s disgraceful!”

Many felt further betrayed by the fact that Kennedy had promised an audience at an autism conference one year prior that he would release his book if the Department of Health and Human Services did not fully remove thimerosal from all vaccines. Despite thimerosal not being removed, Kennedy released his book, but with chapters on autism excluded.

Prominent allies of Kennedy also denounced him. The most extensive criticism came from the scientist who arguably assisted Kennedy with his book more than anybody else: Dr. Boyd Haley.

But mere weeks after the announcement to remove the chapters from Kennedy’s book, rumors began to circulate that he would re-release his book with all the chapters he had previously taken out. Now a year later, he is finally doing it. This is great news for everyone who wanted him to release his complete book.

Addendum, August 16th, 2015: The scheduled release date has changed since the date of this post.
