Jake Crosby Prevails Over Vaccination Troll-Led Twitter Suspension

“BrookeWinters33” account makes its tweets private when it realized its attempts to silence Autism Investigated failed.

10 years ago, there seemed to be some originality to neurodiversity activists’ pleas not to be considered “toxic.” After all, a huge part of their identity was that it was completely predetermined. You could watch their luminaries on national television and read about them in glossy magazines. But today, neurodiversity is dead and gone. It has been replaced with online trolls who conflate vaccine opposition with wanting people who have autism to die. Those trolls also just tried to get Autism Investigated’s editor a suspension from Twitter. They failed.

Imagine having a brain that writes that and then five months later writes this:

Needless to say, some humor at that account’s expense was in order.

The account that accused people of wishing death on others for having different opinions then demanded users report the editor.

“Brooke Winters” didn’t know what “she” was up against.

“12 hours” was then extended to “14 days.” Luckily, Autism Investigated’s official account was never suspended by Twitter despite “Brooke Winters'” efforts.

Autism Investigated’s editor appealed the suspension, sending “Brooke Winters'” June tweet accusing anti-vaccinationists of being death-wishers to Twitter Support. The next day, Twitter lifted the suspension with an apology to Autism Investigated’s editor.

Autism Investigated expects no apology from “Brooke Winters” for abusing Twitter’s community guidelines. “She” did exactly what “she” wanted to do. It just ended in failure, hardly surprising for someone who thinks conflating vaccine skepticism with death wishes is compelling.

It’s only compelling to people stupid enough to post lingerie selfies online and then beg followers to report retweets of those images. Unfortunately, that may be convincing enough for a scarily large number of people.

Vaccine Victim’s Father Trashed Vaccine Industry Watchdog Information

David Salamone (RIP)

Polio vaccine victim David Salamone died on September 7 at age 28. He might have lived longer if his dad actually read the information sent to him by Barbara Loe Fisher’s National Vaccine Information Center.

Instead, John Salamone provided favorable content for credential-faker Paul Offit‘s book Deadly Choices: How the Anti-Vaccine Movement Threatens Us All. Here is Salamone in his own words on page 81:

“[Barbara Loe Fisher’s group] sends me material and I put it in the circular file.”

“It would be reckless to go out there and attribute certain side effects to a vaccine when they’re not documented by science. Attacking vaccines with bad science and bad information is nothing short of reckless and irresponsible.”

“[Doctors’] response, candidly, was not great. My biggest problem was that when you talked about vaccine injury, you were immediately labeled as anti-vaccine. They wanted to put me in the same category as the Fishers of the world, the organizations that had a broader agenda of reducing if not eliminating many of the vaccines. To the contrary, I was pro- vaccine. But I was pro-vaccine safely. I was knowledgeable enough to know the history that many more people’s children and adults have been saved by vaccines than have ever died from them.”

Hope your son’s death was worth pleasing doctors, John. If only Paul Offit remembered to tweet his condolences.

Wakefield Turncoat Authors Committed The Research Fraud

Wakefield Turncoat Author Simon Murch, Photo from Twitter

“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

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.

Vaccine-Pushing Socialist Lies About Economics Background on Fox News

The truth about Elizabeth Stoker Bruenig’s educational background for all to see, Brandeis University

“Sociology,” “English” and “Near Eastern and Judaic Studies”: sounds about right for a millennial socialist who also pushes vaccines. Brandeis has no core curriculum, so Washington Post writer Elizabeth Stoker Bruenig wasn’t even required to take any economics classes. Because Brandeis has very few general requirements, however, it’s extremely easy to declare multiple majors as she has done. It’s even easier to minor in something. An economics minor requires just five courses.

Are her majors in economics or anything close? No. Is her minor? Hell no.

Now watch her exchange with Fox News’ Laura Ingraham. She challenged Bruenig’s credentials to hock an ideology that’s failed everywhere it’s been tried.

Laura Ingraham: Did you take a lot of economics in school?

Elizabeth Stoker Bruenig: I did.

No you didn’t! If you did, you’d at least minor in economics at the easiest place in the world to minor in something even if your majors are totally different! Near Eastern and Judaic Studies were just too important for that.

Her post-graduate studies are no better. They’re exclusively in religion.

Like any good socialist, Bruenig also supports mandatory vaccination. She is quick to call attention to a few cases of measles in the states (brought here from Europe because its overrun with the migrants she wants to bring here en masse).

She is totally silent about the country worst hit by measles in the Americas. That country has also embraced socialism more than any other country in the Americas that isn’t an island.

PAHO

If Bruenig gets her way, the United States will look like Venezuela and anti-vaxxers will get blamed. No wonder she wants to bring socialism here.

Full disclosure: At the university where Bruenig lied about taking “a lot of economics,” she lied about a student autism awareness club the editor founded by crediting someone else in a student publication. Bruenig then retaliated against the editor for having it corrected by bashing the autism-vaccine scientist he invited to campus. That was the first time she publicly defended toxic vaccinations.

The editor was previously introduced to her because she claimed she was starting a related club for “differently-abled students.” That was a lie as well.

Lawsuit May Force Richard Pan to Unblock Autism Investigated

Autism Investigated blocked from Senator Pan’s Twitter account

Earlier this year, left-wing activists won a lawsuit against the president that forced him to unblock critics on Twitter. A similar lawsuit was just filed against California Senator Richard Pan, who stripped California of its mandatory vaccination exemptions. Pan has blocked both Autism Investigated and its editor’s personal account on Twitter. Should the lawsuit be successful, Autism Investigated may not be blocked for much longer.

Sacramento Bee has more:

Suzanne Rummel and Marlene Burkitt, who declined to comment, are the two anti-vaccine activists who filed suit. Marian Tone, their lawyer, released a statement on their behalf outlining the case they plan to make against Pan.

“These social media venues are modern day public forums, and our rights to express ourselves and to petition our government must be protected,” Tone said. “When one speaker is silenced with an invisible gag order, we all lose a little bit of our liberties. These tactics, whether by President Trump or Senator Pan, cannot be tolerated in our modern society.”

Richard Pan has tried to avoid critics both online and in person. This lawsuit, whatever its outcome, is yet another reminder that he cannot keep doing either.

Communist China’s Vaccine Censorship Similarly Employed in the West

The biggest scandal in China is not the country’s current uproar over vaccines, but what the Chinese government is doing to suppress it. State media is playing down the problem while social media posts are being deleted by Chinese censors. “Vaccine” is among the most heavily restricted words on China social media site “Weibo,” according to the University of Hong Kong.

Hong Kong’s South China Morning Post reports:

President Xi Jinping might have described China’s latest vaccine scandal as “appalling”, but censors are still keeping a close eye on social media users who vent their spleens on the subject, while state media has accused some groups of overblowing the issue and the government has reportedly banned coverage of the vaccines from Tuesday onwards.

According to a project run by the Journalism and Media Studies Centre at the University of Hong Kong, which monitors censorship on Weibo, China’s Twitter-like service, the Chinese word for “vaccine” was one of the most restricted on Sunday and Monday.

Anybody who claims China is economically free is ignorant or lying. Its government tightly controls the most important marketplace of mankind: the marketplace of ideas.

But what is happening in Communist China is eerily similar to the actions of the vaccine industry in the West. The United Kingdom strikes off doctors who publish vaccine injuries in medical journals. A former first daughter of the United States has openly called for censoring criticism of toxic vaccination on social media. Her mom was almost elected president, but we didn’t let that happen.

Social media sites are already doing plenty to satisfy them, though. Autism Investigated has been the direct target of Facebook censorship. Google fixes its results to promote vaccines. The child-poisoning vaccine authoritarians in America want to bring China’s communist policies here. They will see a defeat of 2016 proportions.

Paul Offit Takes Anti-Vax Advice: Stops Lying About Credentials

Credit: Columbia University Press, Go leave a review on Amazon.

It’s been nearly a year since Autism Investigated revealed that Paul Offit lied about being Chief of Infectious Diseases at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. He had already been lying for three years. He still had not scrubbed it from his website, until now. The change came right before two fakestream media sites began promoting his latest book, “Bad Advice.”

Last week, Autism Investigated first pointed out the lie to one of his supporters. He then contacted Paul Offit, who finally removed it.

Offit uploaded a new resume directly from his hospital computer dated July 25. The date came before he began aggressively pushing his book on the Washington Post and Salon.com websites. The message of Offit’s book couldn’t be clearer: don’t take advice from celebrities or activists, listen to me!

Except Offit did listen to anti-vaccine advice by no longer lying about his credentials on Paul-offit.com. Surely it wouldn’t look good to flaunt your fake credentials while using them to position yourself as an authority on vaccines and whose critics should be dismissed.

Nonetheless, Paul Offit could never change that he did exactly what his latest book urges people not to do. He took advice from an anti-vaccine activist.

Offit’s credential embellishment is not his first lie, far from. It is, however, his first lie he was forced to publicly correct by a critic he has blocked on Facebook and Twitter and expelled from his talks.

Vox is right: NATO is a vaccine…with horrible side-effects.

Credit: SETA

In an attack on President Trump, socialist website Vox favorably quoted a tweet saying, “NATO is the vaccine of American foreign policy.” Vox is so obsessed with defending the doomed vaccine program, the site even found a way to connect that to Russia. Just look at the subtitle:

Trump is an anti-vaxxer. He treats foreign policy with the same ignorance and misplaced confidence he brings to vaccine science.

Obviously and unfortunately, Trump is not an anti-vaxxer. He is right about Russia, however. Why should anyone even care?

Some Russians were just indicted, but they’ll never face trial in a U.S. court. Obama’s architect of the whole Russian interference story has lied to our elected representatives that millions of Americans weren’t being spied on when we were. The NSA whistleblower who exposed the intelligence chief for the liar that he is has sought asylum in…you guessed it, Russia! What a coincidence that Russia then gets blamed…

All that aside, the main reason Russia would have for meddling in American affairs is keeping American involvement out of Syria. Works for America. American involvement in Libya and Iraq ended in disaster. Those are the costly side-effects of NATO.

The deputy attorney general who handed down the indictments is the brother of the vaccine chief. Another coincidence…

More and more, the Russia Scare is revealing itself to be a ploy to keep President Trump from draining the swamp he promised he’d drain. Scaring everyone about Russia isn’t going to make America great. After all, that’s the idea.

CNN Opposition Researcher Supports Vaccination Injury Cover-Up

Note that Autism Investigated does not refer to CNN as “journalists,” because they’re not that. They’re political operatives doing their corporate master’s bidding. Take Andrew Kaczynski, who threatened to dox a Reddit poster for superimposing the CNN logo on the face of WWE CEO Vince McMahon in a video of him getting body-slammed by Donald Trump. Before joining CNN, Kaczynski made a name for himself as an opposition researcher for BuzzFeed.

When news broke that the wife of the White House’s new communications director holds anti-vaccine views, Kaczynski pulled no punches.

CNN’s top opposition researcher is so determined to censor vaccine injury stories in social media, he’ll target someone’s wife. Kaczynski and CNN are truly an “enemy of the people” as the president so aptly called mainstream media. Anti-vaccinationists and vaccine skeptics should recognize Kaczynski, CNN and other mainstream news outlets for what they are.

If they want to talk to you, it’s for their benefit and not yours. Don’t give them the oxygen they desire.
