PERVERT ALERT: “Scientist” W. Ian Lipkin Sued for Degeneracy

No, this pervert alert is not for Anthony Weiner. The pervert alert is for vaccine apologist “scientist” extraordinaire Ian Lipkin who is now being sued by his colleague Dr. Mady Hornig. Among the charges are taking credit for her work, preventing her from speaking at public meetings and asking her to diagnose a lesion on his ass! (whut?)

Age of Autism has the goods:

Dachel Wake Up: Columbia Autism Scientists in Butt Ugly Lawsuit

Note: You can read the legal filing here.  Hornig v. Lipkin

May 20, 2017, New York Post: Columbia professor says boss made her inspect his butt

A Columbia University scientist claims her boss — and former lover — repeatedly dropped his drawers and demanded she diagnose a lesion on his butt.

Associate Professor Mady Hornig says her boss at the university’s Mailman School of Public Health also demanded co-credit for her work; kicked her under the table at meetings to keep her from speaking; presented her work as his own, and kept her from getting tenure, Hornig claims in a Manhattan federal court lawsuit.

In 2014, Professor Walter Ian Lipkin, head of the Center for Infection & Immunity, called Hornig into his office and “demanded that she look at lesions on his buttocks,” Hornig alleges. He did so again a year later, Hornig charges.

Lipkin is familiar to us at Age of Autism. I wrote about his Wall Street Journal piece, Anti-Vaccination Lunacy Won’t Stop, where he denounced ‘Vaxxed’ and said Robert De Niro did the right thing pulling it from Tribeca. https://www.wsj.com/articles/anti-vaccination-lunacy-wont-stop-1459721652

“The filmmakers claim they have not stated that autism is caused by the measles, mumps and rubella vaccine, known as MMR. However, that is the inescapable message of ‘Vaxxed.’ And it is certainly the stance of Andrew Wakefield, the discredited British researcher who is the movie’s director and co-writer.

Vaccinated vs. Unvaccinated Studies Back Online

008ad6c

From JB Handley:

What if a study of vaccinated versus unvaccinated children was published, removed, republished in a different journal, removed again because of online misinformation, and then republished (today) after the misinformation was cleared up? Well, then you’d have the first study of vaccinated versus unvaccinated children officially online and in a journal (as of this moment).

If you’re confused, you’re not alone. And just to clarify: this study has NEVER been retracted, only removed by two journals, and re-published by the second one…Starting to think this is the study that just “won’t go away!”

And, if that’s not confusing enough, please note there are actually TWO separate studies on unvaccinated children in the same journal. The second one is linked in my first comment, and it concerns premature infants.

 

When the papers were first removed, one notoriously dishonest blogger named David Gorski (a.k.a :”Orac”) had nuclear organism. He also wanted to make very clear that he learned about the initial deletion of papers from yours truly, using a new nickname he has coined:

So what did I overlook? Well, thanks to The Gnat (and if you don’t know who The Gnat is, just look at the comments of yesterday’s post) I realized that I missed half the fail. Here’s what I mean:


Yes, that’s the conspiracy crank site InfoWars, and yes InfoWars is eating this study up, interviewing Celeste McGovern, who is promoted as a “vaccine expert.” I had never heard of her before, but it turns out that she writes for Claire Dwoskin’s Children’s Medical Safety Research Institute (CMSRI), one of the two antivaccine groups that funded Mawson’s study. (The other was Generation Rescue.) As expected, she is antivaccine to the core.

What I learned, though, from following The Gnat’s link is that there was a second paper published in the very same bottom-feeding predatory open access journal by Mawson using the very same survey dataset, Preterm birth, vaccination and neurodevelopmental disorders: a cross-sectional study of 6- to 12-year-old vaccinated and unvaccinated children. Clearly, Mawson believes in the concept of “minimal publishable unit” (or MPU, as we call it) in which you divide the data into as many papers as you can and still get manage to get published, hence his publishing two papers instead of one.

Amusingly, when I clicked on that link, I got a “not found” error message, but as of yesterday the paper was still in Google Cache, and I saved a copy for your edification. [LINK] This led me to check the link to the other paper, and guess what? It was gone yesterday, too

Yet after the studies re-appeared today, all Gorski said was this:

The first study appears to be back on the OAT website…

Poor Gorski, he celebrated way too soon.

THE KU VAX KLAN WANTS BLACK PEOPLE TO HANG

Black-lynching

In response to the measles outbreak among Somalis in Minnesota justifiably afraid of the MMR vaccine, the Boston Herald wrote an editorial concluding:

These are the facts: Vaccines don’t cause autism. Measles can kill. And lying to vulnerable people about the health and safety of their children ought to be a hanging offense.

Who do they want to hang? Why, people like Abdulkadir Khalif, who wrote the following about what happened to his son:

A few days earlier, Abdimalik got his 18 months MMR vaccine as scheduled. I still remember that day. His mother was coming back from his appointment and passed my place of work to give me a ride home. Abdimalik was sitting in his car-seat, very quite, subdued and absent minded. As I took my seat I glanced back wondering if he was asleep or not. He was seated squarely in his seat but was looking straight ahead at a point in space. I called out to him and he did not respond. I shook him and he did not move. I looked at my wife and asked what happened and she explained where they came from and that everything went well. She explained how he thanked the nurse as she put a sticker on his chest before the injection in order to build rapport. After that we rode home in silence and life was never the same again.

They also include people like Sheila Ealey, who shared the following story of her son:

After the shot he stopped walking, he started crawling, he started banging his head against the wall, the floor, anything he could. He stopped imitating with his father, he was making no eye contact, and he didn’t want you to touch him or hold him.

There is a very high autism prevalence among Somalis in Minnesota and an elevated prevalence of regressive autism in black children. This could be explained by the fact that black children are more likely to be damaged by the MMR vaccine, according to data analyzed and then trashed by the CDC per one whistleblower:

I regret that my coauthors and I omitted statistically significant information in our 2004 article published in the journal Pediatrics. The omitted data suggested that African American males who received the MMR vaccine before age 36 months were at increased risk for autism. Decisions were made regarding which findings to report after the data were collected, and I believe that the final study protocol was not followed.

In a statement read to Congress by Bill Posey, the whistlebower Dr. William Thompson elaborated on the conspiracy:

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.

The vaccine industry destroyed data showing black children are harmed by vaccines and wants black parents to hang for resisting vaccination.

The white coat is the new white hood, and the vaccine industry is the new Ku Klu Klan: the Ku Vax Klan.

The New American Calls Bullshit on Measles Exploitation

Measles Outbreak Prompts Outrage Against Anti-vaxers

Written by 

An outbreak of measles amongst a small unvaccinated population in Minnesota could spell trouble for the anti-vax community as it may prompt yet another push for forced vaccinations by vaccine advocates. The media is using the latest outbreak to criticize anti-vax groups and tout the “benefits” of vaccinations, despite the science that links vaccines to a number of long-term health issues.

In the United States, every child by the age of 18 is expected to receive a total of 69 doses of 16 different vaccines, most of which use controversial ingredients. Many parents of autistic children have concluded that these vaccines and the vaccination schedule utilized in the United States play a role in the rise of autism and have sounded the alarm for other parents to think twice before administering vaccines to their children. Unfortunately, those skeptics then become prime targets whenever there is an outbreak of a disease for which a vaccine exists.

On May 8, for example, CNN reported that of the 48 confirmed cases of measles in Minnesota, 41 are Somali-Americans who “bought into the fears that vaccines cause autism, and thus eschewed getting vaccines for their children.” CNN cites Kristen Ehresmann, director of the Infectious Disease Epidemiology, Prevention and Control Division at the Minnesota Department of Health, who claims that the Somali-Americans fell prey to the anti-vaccine groups that targeted them after it was discovered in 2008 that a disproportionate number of Somali children were receiving special education for autism. According to the Washington Post, a University of Minnesota study found that Somali children were about as likely as white children to be identified with autism, although they were more likely to have intellectual disabilities.

Ehresmann added, “I want to be very clear that this outbreak has nothing to do with being Somali. It’s just the sheer fact of being unvaccinated.”

In its overzealous effort to defend vaccines, CNN cited a pro-vaccine expert whose claims seem to undermine assertions that vaccines and autism have no relationship. Michael Osterholm, regents professor and director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota and a former state epidemiologist for Minnesota, said, “Between 2000 and roughly 2008, the Somali community in Minnesota actually had some of the highest vaccination rates for 2-year-olds of any population in the state.”

As observed by Barbara Loe Fisher, founder of the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC),

The truth is, nobody knows how many vaccine victims there are in America, how many of the 1 in 6 learning disabled children; or the 1 in 9 with asthma; or the 1 in 100 who develop autism; or the 1 in 450 who become diabetic, can trace their chronic inflammation, disease and disability back to vaccine reactions that have been dismissed by public health officials and doctors for the past century as just “a coincidence.”

And even when scientists are forced to confront the data, they simply dismiss it on the grounds that there is not enough evidence to establish a “causal” relationship.

But sadly, it seems the scientific community is not interested in conducting any studies that might establish a causal relationship. According to public testimony of Dr. Heather Rice at the Vermont Department of Health, “No true prospective, randomized and controlled study of health outcomes of vaccinated people versus unvaccinated has ever been conducted by the U.S. by CDC or any other agency in the 50 years or more of an accelerating schedule of vaccinations.”

Meanwhile, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says measles “is so contagious that if one person has it, 90% of the people close to that person who are not immune will also become infected.” But if the pro-vaccine community is confident in the effectiveness of vaccinations, then they should have no fears of contraction.

And whether the CDC can even be considered a trustworthy entity is another issue. According to a controversial 2016 film directed by autism advocate Dr. Andrew Wakefield entitled Vaxxed: From Coverup to Catastrophe, the CDC was behind a major cover-up of the MMR vaccine’s connection to autism. The documentary is based on revelations by CDC whistleblower Dr. William Thompson, a former senior scientist at the CDC who admits that the organization destroyed evidence linking the MMR vaccination to autism.

But while Thompson’s revelations were groundbreaking, the mainstream media virtually staged an all-out blackout. Instead, it waits for stories of “measles outbreaks” to launch a media firestorm.

“Anti-vaccine groups blamed in Minnesota measles outbreak,” CNN reports. “Measles outbreak in Minnesota caused by vaccine skeptics,” an NBC News headline reads. “Unfounded autism fears are fueling Minnesota’s measles outbreak,” NPR opines. And a Fox News headline reads, “Minnesota measles outbreak: Officials say Somali families ‘targeted with misinformation.’” When it comes to vaccinations, all mainstream media outlets seem to be on the same side.

Perhaps that “bipartisan” approach to this subject is because the mainstream media is virtually owned by the pharmaceutical industry. According to Robert F. Kennedy Jr., the chairman of the World Mercury Project, which seeks a global ban on mercury, the press has been “coopted” by the pharmaceutical industry. Big Pharma, he says, is the single largest contributor to advertising revenue to network news divisions, at approximately $5.4 billion per year.

“A network news broadcast these days … is just a vehicle for selling pharmaceutical products,” Kennedy asserts.

In fact, it was the media’s silence on the CDC whistleblower that inspired Del Bigtree, an Emmy award-winning medical journalist, to produce Vaxxed:

I want the media to be held accountable for the weeks and weeks of covering a measles outbreak at Disneyland, terrifying people when only 644 people were affected. That’s .000002% of the people in this country, which effectively translates to zero, when one in 45 kids is now diagnosed with autism. I’d like the media to explain why it won’t cover the story of a top CDC scientist who admits they committed fraud on the MMR study when they discovered a causal link between the vaccine and autism, a disease that is accelerating so fast it could spell the end of our society. If that’s not a story, what is?

Thompson’s revelations did garner the attention of Florida Republican Congressman Bill Posey, who called on Congress to conduct a formal investigation into the allegations against the CDC in July 2015:

I believe it’s our duty to ensure that the documents that Dr. Thompson provided are not ignored. Therefore I will provide them to members of Congress and the house committees upon request. Considering the nature of the whistleblower’s documents, as well as the involvement of the CDC, a hearing and a thorough investigation is warranted. So, I ask Mr. Speaker, I beg, I implore my colleagues on the appropriations committees to please, please take such action.

Unfortunately, Posey’s request fell on deaf ears, while media portrayal of the Minnesota measles outbreak does not.

INFOWARS: Studies Prove Unvaccinated Children Are Healthier

Studies put to question the safety of current vaccination practices

Published on May 5, 2017

Celeste McGovern joins Rob Dew and Owen Shroyer to discuss the first ever study comparing the health levels of vaccinated and unvaccinated children.

See the studies here (updated, they got taken down but now they’re back!):

http://www.oatext.com/Preterm-birth-vaccination-and-neurodevelopmental-disorders-a-cross-sectional-study-of-6-to-12-year-old-vaccinated-and-unvaccinated-children.php

http://www.oatext.com/Pilot-comparative-study-on-the-health-of-vaccinated-and-unvaccinated-6-to-12-year-old-U-S-children.php

The second of these listed studies was previously published then pulled by another journal after the child-poisoners threw a Twitter fit. Autism Investigated sent a letter to the publisher Frontiers telling them we would make sure their index on the National Library of Medicine would be taken away. Frontiers was also reminded of its publishing standards that it was breaching:

You are now considering blocking the paper’s publication even after post-peer review acceptance, thanks to online attacks from Twitter users who have neither read the study nor produced any inside knowledge about the study that would prove its findings to be invalid. You also lied to its readers that the publication was “provisionally accepted,” yet the abstract before it was deleted simply listed the study as “accepted” alongside a digital object identifier before it was taken down: http://www.autisminvestigated.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/Screen-Shot-2016-11-28-at-09.36.00.png

Your guidelines also state that a study is not uploaded online until after final acceptance: http://home.frontiersin.org/about/review-system

Please tweet the link to the republished study to Frontiers on Twitter, repeating the threat of National Library de-listing. Please also be sure to troll the bitch who has led the charge for the study’s removal. Autism Investigated’s editor previously tweeted about her below:

ALL MMR VAX BACKERS CAUSE AUTISM AND MEASLES


There is no available measles vaccine, only the MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) vaccine. The former prevents measles, the latter causes measles to linger in the guts of children who developed autism and GI disease as a result of MMR. Measles has made a comeback in the US and UK because there is no measles vaccine available – just the MMR which every child should be protected from. Below is a nearly 20-year old story about the withdrawal of the measles vaccine in the UK by the manufacturer because of – get this – high demand for its use. That demand followed publication of exonerated Dr. Andrew Wakefield’s paper on MMR-injured children. Former CDC director Dr. Tom Frieden is complicit in covering up their injuries.

Measles jab withdrawn due to ‘high demand’

PARENTS CONCERNED about inoculating their children with the controversial triple vaccine MMR will be forced to travel to Europe if they want a single measles vaccination, it was revealed yesterday.

The company that makes the single measles vaccine said it was withdrawing it from sale in Britain because it could not meet demand.

From now on parents will have only the option of using MMR, which has been linked by one study, published in the medical journal The Lancet, to autism and bowel disease.

Last night Pasteur Merieux MSD, the Paris-based company that makes both the triple and single vaccines, said the single vaccine had been available in Britain on a named-patient basis only.

“That meant it was only available to a very small number of people,” said Dr Veronique Maguin, the company’s marketing director.

“As demand grew we had to make an ethical decision about who the drug should be available to. It was a problem for the company because we could not satisfy everybody. Our main concern is one of public health and we felt we could not satisfy everybody.”

There has been a huge increase in demand for the single measles injection since the report last February in The Lancet on MMR, which also inoculates against mumps and rubella.

While a subsequent report published by the Medical Research Council found no evidence of the link, many parents remain suspicious of the triple vaccine and want to see more research carried out into its possible side- effects.

Some believe that receiving all three vaccines at once has a negative effect on the immune system.

Ann Coote, a founder member of the pressure group Jabs – Justice, Awareness, and Basic Support – said she was astounded the company was withdrawing the single vaccine.

“It does seem very strange. Most manufacturers faced with a demand for something would be rubbing their hands together,” she said.

“We get a lot of calls from parents who have lost faith in MMR and would prefer to have the option of a single vaccine. We would like to see MMR suspended and more research done.

“In the meantime single vaccines should be available. We are not against vaccines, we are against damage. Parents have a right to make a choice.”

Mrs Coote said many parents were considering travelling to Europe to purchase single jabs.

She said that her own daughter, Rachal, stopped breathing after being injected with the triple vaccine at the age of 18 months.

Now aged 11, Rachal still suffers from epileptic fits and has the mental age of a six-year-old.

Her daughter’s experience led Mrs Coote to set up Jabs, which has 1,700 members.

The Department of Health accepts the vaccine is not risk-free. “All drugs have side-effects,” said a spokeswoman. “We believe that there is more risk from not having the vaccination.”

She said the Government recommended having all three vaccinations at once, though she denied there had been any pressure placed on Pasteur Merieux MSD to withdraw the single vaccine.

“There is a risk to other children if a child is waiting to go back to the doctor for another vaccination. It is also more painful for the child,” she said.

“But the decision to withdraw the single vaccine is the company’s alone.”

Jimmy Kimmel’s Son Inherits Dad’s Hole in Heart

Jimmy_Kimmel_on_son_848x480_934449731628

After making fun of children with vaccine injury by equating it to saying that pancakes make you gay, Jimmy Kimmel is making headlines again. Only this time, he’s not shamelessly mocking sick kids. No, the manpon salesman-turned-TV show host is now demanding sympathy for his own sick kid while making a pitch for Obamacare. So Autism Investigated will now make its own political point out of Jimmy’s son’s plight.

You see, Jimmy Kimmel’s son – apart from being Jimmy Kimmel’s son – had quite a big problem to deal with. He was born with a condition in which a hole is present inside the heart. Oh, the irony…

When Kimmel defended vaccinations, he made it very clear that his basis for doing so was his faith in doctors – whom he banned vaccine skeptics from ever seeing. That faith was probably further solidified after his son’s apparently successful heart operation.

The problem is that when it comes to vaccines, doctors come out of medical school dumber than they were when they went in. This is in large part due to the fact that they and the drug companies cannot be sued for any vaccine injury, thanks to the same federal government that systematically lies about vaccine risks.

Is it really so crazy to avoid the one medical procedure that doctors cannot be held accountable for? Would Jimmy schedule any doctor’s visit for his kid if the doctor cannot legally be held accountable for any subsequent harm suffered by his child?

Presumably, his son already got a CDC-recommended routine vaccination on his date of birth. Now he’s just gotta take the rest of the shots for the team.

Grab him n’ stab him, Jimmy!!

(PS: As Jimmy Kimmel said of his vaccine defense, Autism Investigated will not apologize for this post.)

NEURODIVERSITY = WEAPONIZED AUTISM

fQBhujJ10 years ago Ari Ne’eman of the Autistic Self-Advocacy Network stuck his fat face on Good Morning America to exalt the virtues of autism. Since then, autists have become an adorable public spectacle for America’s entertainment. America knew what repulsive freaks we were being, but wouldn’t admit it and patted us on the head as cheerleaders for the emerging identity politics of the left.

Barack Obama put Ari Ne’eman on the National Council on Disability, where he got nothing done except for being the autistic figurehead for neurodiversity. The movement that was formed in the early 1990s by “gender-fluid” autist Jim Sinclair has done nothing to improve the lives of people with autism. It has allowed autists to become unsuspecting tools of the pharmaceutical industry, mainstream media/entertainment and the institutional left. In effect, neurodiversity is weaponized autism.

Politicians, drug companies, the slush fund that is federal autism research – they all benefit from this sideshow of autists who play warriors for a non-existent civil rights movement. Meanwhile, children are literally losing their ability to speak thanks to vaccinations and the government continues to cover that up. Weaponized autism is as dangerous as ever.

At least, however, we can still celebrate one of the few cases of weaponized autism gone right, Exhibit A: 4Chan trolls capturing Shia Labeouf’s stupid anti-Trump “He Will Not Divide Us” flag.

Disturbing footage taken straight from Shia’s cuckshed.

Update: I hope Shia doesn’t kill himself. He makes such a great cartoon villain.

WaPo Wants Autistic Men to Fuck Even Less

The-40-Year-Old-Virgin1

It’s hard enough to be a man these days, it sucks even more to be an autist.

Trouble getting a job, depiction as pedophiles on blogs, trouble finding a girlfriend while the few women on the autism spectrum prefer scissoring – there is no end.

So what is an issue Washington Post, a.k.a. WaPo, claims men with autism have? Well, it’s one of the few problems they don’t actually have: “consent.” The thing is, autistic men do not have problems with getting permission from people to fuck them. Autistic men have problems with getting people to fuck them.

But no, according to Washington Post we don’t understand “consent”; we need to have somebody “teach” it to us. With feminists spreading anti-man horseshit myths about “rape culture” on college campuses, “consent” classes have been all the vogue. “Teach men not to rape” is their motto.

Of course it’s all bullshit, even autists don’t have problems interpreting the word “no.” The boundaries are obvious to pretty much anyone, even us. There is no point in teaching anybody “consent,” and an actual rapist is not going to care anyway. But sadly, many autistic men have probably seen the sensationalized stories surrounding false rape accusations that ruined the lives of the accused.

These kinds of horror stories are intimidating enough to any man. Then throw in a social disability that already makes the pursuit of relationships grueling. The result is a rapidly growing population of sexually repressed, anxiety-stricken young men.

But to Washington Post and one so-called autistic contributor, the problem is not that autistic men have too many boundaries between themselves and getting laid. The problem is that they are not setting enough “boundaries” between them and getting laid.

What autists need to do is get over their extreme anxiety when it comes to women, not worsen it by worrying about make-believe “boundaries” established by feminists and “autistic” cuck reporters. It’s almost as if the author wants everyone else to be as dry as he is down there; he’s just picking autists as an easy target.

And one more thing: when autistic men pursue relationships with women, they need to be actual women. Autists should not date transgender/”gender-fluid” freaks as WaPo’s article condones. Transgenderism is a mental disorder and autists should especially avoid trannies like the plague.

JAMA Must Correct Study As Linking Flu Vax to Autism

jamapediatrics_Hooker_2017_le_170006.pdfjamapediatrics_Donzelli_2017_le_170007.pdf

Click each letter to enlarge.

Since the journal JAMA Pediatrics published a study which showed an association between flu vaccine and autism despite concluding there was none, scientists have published letters in the journal to complain. One of those was by Dr. Brian Hooker, biochemist and autism father who was the first person contacted by the CDC’s vaccine safety whistleblower William Thompson.

The study found an elevated risk for autism from flu vaccination in pregnant women during the first month of pregnancy. Yet the authors attempted to explain this away with incorrect statistical methods and then issued the flawed recommendation that no changes in vaccination policy should be made. In 2004, the CDC expanded its flu vaccine recommendations in pregnant women to include the first trimester of pregnancy. Many cite this an an explanation for why the reported CDC prevalence of autism – generally speaking – did not decline as the mercury-based preservative thimerosal had been removed from other vaccines. Thimerosal remains in multi-dose vials of flu vaccine given to pregnant women.

In Denmark, the reported autism prevalence went down by as much as a third as thimerosal was removed from childhood vaccines there during the 1990s. The elevated risk for autism associated with influenza vaccination during the first trimester of pregnancy was 20-25%. The potential implications of such a finding is profound.

The study was conducted by Kaiser Permanente, a Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) that is in partnership with the CDC and other HMOs in a heavily guarded federal research project known as the Vaccine Safety Datalink (VSD). JAMA journals’ publisher the American Medical Association sent a press release applauding a 2004 report from the Institute of Medicine that the CDC paid to have whitewash associations between vaccines and autism. The involvement of such institutions in the conduct and publication of such a study should only diminish public confidence in its integrity, along with its flawed conclusion and recommendation.

Nonetheless, the conclusion and recommendation should still be corrected. JAMA Pediatrics can be contacted here.
