Likely CDC Head Omitted HIV Research, Was Reprimanded By Army

Autism Investigated: Read the above Science Magazine article (click to enlarge, continued in embedded text below) and draw your own conclusion about the doctor President Trump will likely appoint to head  the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as Fitzgerald’s replacement.

The question of how Redfield had chosen his 15 patients for analysis came up again in August 1992, after the Amsterdam meeting, when researchers at WRAIR [Walter Reed Army Institute of Research] and the Henry M. Jackson Foundation for the advancement of Military Medicine-a private lab that has a multi-million-dollar contract to assist the military’s AIDS research program -analyzed data from all 26 patients and found no statistically significant effect on viral load. Indeed, at an AIDS vaccine meeting sponsored by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases from 31 August-3 September in Chantilly, Virginia, Redfield and Vahey both made presentations about the full data set of 26 patients; both presentations showed that the viral load data from all 26 patients indicated no statistically significant change with gp160 treatment.

In addition, viral load data from the first 15 patients “were similar to those of the entire 26 patients,” Col. Donald Burke, Redfield’s boss, explained to Army investigators.

How had Redfield found statistical significance where there apparently was none? That question was first addressed by Burke in an informal inquiry. According to Burke’s statement to Army investigators, he held a meeting with key Redfield collaborators on 28 August-just before Chantilly-and the attendees “all agreed that the data analysis [for Amsterdam] was done in haste, which resulted in some arbitrary criteria and methodological errors.” 

Burke concluded there had been no scientific misconduct, only scientific error. In his statement to the Army investigators, Burke said that after the Chantilly presentations, “I was satisfied that the data were presented openly and accurately and that the conundrum regarding the Amsterdam presentation had been put to rest and the case was closed.”

The case was not closed. On 20 October, two Air Force AIDS researchers filed a formal complaint against Redfield that became the basis for the investigation. At the end of that process, Army investigator Dangerfield found that no misconduct had occurred and that any errors in Redfield’s presentation were due to haste. Dangerfield’s report cites Burke’s 28 August meeting as one explanation for that conclusion. The meeting, wrote Dangerfield in his final report, “concluded that the disparities between the analyses of [Lt. Col.] Redfield at Amsterdam and that of others arose by presenting preliminary data from less than the full study … and data analysis done in haste.”

That interpretation isn’t likely to satisfy some of Redfield’s colleagues. Three of them told Science they don’t believe haste was the reason Redfield’s analysis went awry. “I don’t think it was a silly, sophomoric mistake be- cause someone was rushed,” contends statistician William McCarthy, who until 15 July was the chief of biostatistics at the Jackson Foundation-and has resigned in frustration because of what he calls “a lack of candor” about the gp160 data. “The way the data were presented [in Amsterdam] was not legitimate, and it made the data look better than it would have looked had there been an appropriate analysis,” says McCarthy.

Two Redfield collaborators, who insist on not being quoted by name, also reject the notion that the Amsterdam presentation contained errors made in haste. Says one investigator: “I don’t think it was a presentation made by a researcher in a hurry. The presentation was sloppy and irresponsible. You go out and make a statement as an authority, as a world-class scientist, and you’re not super sure? Come on.” Another collaborator says Redfield’s presentation “was very well thought out.”

The FOIA documents, however, also reveal that Redfield has supporters among his colleagues. One of the strongest statements of support came from Lt. Col. John Brundage, WRAIR’s chief epidemiologist. Brundage, who helped Redfield with his statistical analysis prior to Amsterdam, told Danger- field he had attended the presentation and “did not feel it was inappropriate.” Brundage’s statement also said he thought Redfield had benefited from Brundage’s statistical “tutoring several days previously.”

Although the Army’s investigation of the Amsterdam presentation may not have satisfied all those close to these events, by 20 February of this year that phase of the investigation was closed. But because of concerns about WRAIR’s relationship with Americans for a Sound AIDS/HIV Policy, the Army launched a second probe–of that organization and its ties to Army researchers.

ASAP, which educates religious groups and aims to speed development of treatments, became snared in the Redfield investigation because of concerns that Redfield supporter W. Shepherd Smith Jr., the group’s president, was improperly contacting WRAIR researchers to discuss unreleased gp160 data. Like Redfield, Smith has been a strong supporter of gp160 therapy, testifying before Congress and even staging an investment seminar in Los Angeles for potential MicroGeneSys investors. Redfield is chairman of ASAP’s advisory board, which his chief collaborator, Deborah Birx, also serves on.

Specifically taken up in the Army probe was a phone call ASAP’s Smith made to Vahey on 24 August, in which they discussed the gp160 study and interpretations of the early results. Vahey was concerned enough about “the command of the data that Mr. Smith exhibited” and his opinions about how the gp160 data should be presented that she wrote a memo for the record, which the Army supplied to Science.

Smith told Science any implication he was trying to influence the analysis of gp160 data was “absolutely false,” stressing that his reason for calling had “nothing to do with the Amsterdam presentation.” Smith said he believes ASAP was brought into the Army’s investigation because “nothing was found in the first report and that wasn’t satisfactory to people who had staked their careers on finding something wrong with Bob Redfield.”

The Army investigation concluded that WRAIR provided ASAP with “scientific information that was not widely disseminated” and recommended that ties between the two groups “be severed so there is not an appearance of endorsement or favoritism.”

Severing the tie between ASAP and Army researchers, however, won’t end the questions still swirling around Robert Redfield, the gp160 vaccine, and MicroGeneSys. Although Redfield’s supporters are pleased with the outcome of the investigation, many of Redfield’s colleagues and others close to the investigation are not fully satisfied. A new investigation could be launched by a joint Army-Navy-Air Force team. Congress might also hold hearings on the issue. On the scientific front, gp160 will also come up again soon, since the military is staging a trial of the MicroGeneSys vaccine in more than 600 infected people. The trial will compare treated patients to a randomized control group receiving a placebo. A first look at the blinded data is scheduled for the fall. But, like every other new piece of information about gp160, those preliminary results are far more likely to start debate than to end it. -Jon Cohen SCIENCE VOL. 261 13 AUGUST 1993

BREAKING: BRENDA FITZGERALD RESIGNS AS CDC CHIEF

“I take it back!” Brenda Fitzgerald being sworn into office.

Brenda Fitzgerald resigns as CDC director.

Statement from U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Regarding CDC Director Brenda Fitzgerald

“This morning Secretary Azar accepted Dr. Brenda Fitzgerald’s resignation as Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  Dr. Fitzgerald owns certain complex financial interests that have imposed a broad recusal limiting her ability to complete all of her duties as the CDC Director. Due to the nature of these financial interests, Dr. Fitzgerald could not divest from them in a definitive time period.   After advising Secretary Azar of both the status of the financial interests and the scope of her recusal, Dr. Fitzgerald tendered, and the Secretary accepted, her resignation.  The Secretary thanks Dr. Brenda Fitzgerald for her service and wishes her the best in all her endeavors.”

— HHS Spokesman Matt Lloyd

Read Autism Investigated’s open letter to President Trump last summer to protest Dr. Fitzgerald’s appointment to CDC director. Selected excerpt:

If you want a genuine vaccine safety commission as you promised Robert F. Kennedy Jr., it will not work with federal agency heads all wanting to keep the status quo. You have already appointed someone to run the FDA who has testified that he will challenge you on vaccine safety. There was no major outcry then because, unlike CDC, FDA does not dictate federal vaccine policy.

ROGER STONE: President Trump Should Keep His Promise on Vaccine Safety

Stonecoldtruth.com

Autism Investigated Note: Below is an article from noted political operative and longtime Trump ally Roger Stone, urging President Trump to form a vaccine safety commission as he promised. Autism Investigated endorsed Donald Trump for president two years ago for his statements against vaccine injuries. Since the inauguration, Autism Investigated has called on President Trump to not appoint Brenda Fitzgerald CDC director and has also asked him to extradite CDC fraudster Poul Thorsen to the US.

(By Roger Stone) Donald J. Trump cares about people and especially for the citizens of the United States of America. He sacrificed more than most can ever know in order to do his utmost to make America great again. He and his family are to this day suffering the slings and arrows of an out-of-control political class that seeks nothing less than their total destruction. As his first year draws to a close, however, his list of achievements impresses even his harshest critics. Cutting red tape, rebuilding our military, and restoring respect for America worldwide are but a few of his dozens of monumental achievements, but there is still much more work to do.

President Trump also stands against corruption and seeks to shine truth wherever he can in his desire to drain The Swamp.  The Swamp is not only the embedded political class and the federal bureaucracies but also corrupted special interests that seek their own gain at everyone else’s expense.  Big Medicine and Big Pharma are two such special interest that have shielded their own from scrutiny by gaming the system and gaslighting their victims.

Only a couple of months into his presidency, in March 2017, Donald Trump launched a special commission to investigate the opioid crisis that is wreaking havoc across the United States.  He declared it a national emergency and has taken on Big Medicine and Big Pharma by calling them out.

Roger Stone

Roger Stone, stonecoldtruth.com

While on the campaign trail, then Candidate Trump promised to do whatever he could to help end the opiate scourge upon America, and he kept true to his word regardless of the pressures put upon him. Post-election he promised to appoint a special commission to investigate vaccine safety, however this is an important promise he has yet to keep.

There are significant studies that call into question the Status Quo party line that vaccines are safe. While the technology of applying a vaccine to preemptively shield against an illness is well studied and has proven efficacy, the actual industry of creating the vaccines that get pumped into Americans has undergone less scrutiny.

Through out his public life President Trump has repeatedly questioned the safety of vaccinations. While president elect he said he would appoint a commission headed by Robert F Kennedy Jr. the son of former attorney general and US Sen. Robert Kennedy to study the safety of the growingly mandatory vaccinations in widespread use in this country

Contrary to the oft-repeated claim that vaccines are safe and effective, statistical evidence has piled up showing them to be potentially toxic. They may cause injuries greater than the public realizes and sometimes can be riskier than catching the diseases the vaccines are supposed to stop.  Mounting testimonials are piling up from suffering families who are absolutely convinced that a vaccine destroyed their child’s life.

Incredibly California congressmen Adam Schiff has sponsored a House Resolution that incredibly claims that no US citizen has ever been damaged by vaccination and that the US government has never paid out a penny to any citizen damaged in this manner. This is akin to sponsoring a House Resolution which claims that the Holocaust never happened. In fact, the US government has paid out more than $3.5 billion to individuals damaged by vaccinations that we are told are safe. Schiff’s groveling for big Pharma campaign contributions is just another reason why I say ” if it’s Schiff- flush it !”

It is not only the young who are at risk. A recently published study showed that the H1N1 flu vaccine was associated with a seven-fold increase in miscarriages when administered to pregnant women. The suffering that this vaccine has caused expecting mothers is unimaginable. Where is the press coverage on this finding? Why isn’t the CDC directing the flu vaccine not to be given to pregnant women?

Fake News Media outlets refuse to cover the vaccine controversies because they receive enormous revenue from advertising on behalf of pharmaceutical companies. Some of the most watched programs on Mainstream Media receive up to seventy percent of their ad revenue from Big Pharma and Big Medicine.

Perhaps the CDC is not the protector of public health it is mandated to be, but is rather more a protector of itself and its own vested interests. It has now been three years since Dr. William Thompson, a CDC scientist who co-authored several studies claiming that vaccines were safe admitted that he and fellow CDC scientists committed fraud with the destruction of government records, because the data showed a clear correlation the vaccines cause autism.

In 2014 Thompson confirmed what many vaccine safety advocates had been saying for years: the CDC is a cesspool of corruption and corporate influence.

A recent report by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.’s World Mercury Project on the activities surrounding the criminal indictment of former CDC fraudster, Poul Thorsen, clearly shows that CDC staff aided, abetted and helped cover up Thorsen’s schemes to create fraudulent research for the benefit of the government’s defense in the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, otherwise known as “Vaccine Court.” The outsourced fraudulent science by indicted Danish scientist, Poul Thorsen, is still being used to deny compensation to families who brought claims in the Vaccine Court that their children developed autism following vaccine injuries.

Thousands of families had their cases alleging vaccine induced autism in the “Omnibus Autism Proceedings” dismissed in the Vaccine Court based on the science that Thorsen authored as well as that of Dr. William Thompson now admits it was also fraudulent.

More than 5,000 cases thrown out of Vaccine Court deserve to have the hearings they were never granted and the families deserve compensation. Instead of being treated fairly, with respect and compassion, the government treated them as road kill and allowed them to be victims of the greatest scientific and legal fraud in the nation’s history. Despite this the so-called Vaccination Court has ordered the payout of over $3.5 billion to US citizens damaged by vaccinations.

Thorsen never filed the necessary documents to receive approval for his fraudulent studies from an Institutional Review Board, manipulated or excluded data in studies—just as Thompson says CDC researchers did—and then stole more than one million dollars from U.S. taxpayers. Poul Thorsen has been under a 22-count indictment and remains a fugitive from the Office of the Inspector General of the Secretary of Health and Human Services and U.S. DOJ for over six years. He continues to live openly in Denmark, a free man, working on projects still funded by the CDC and NIH.

CDC researchers have maintained regular contact with Thorsen. In fact, Thorsen long-time CDC scientist girlfriend, Dr. Diana Schendel, retired from the agency and today works at the same Danish university where Thorsen committed his crimes. The fake science he published has never been retracted and is still used to claim that vaccines are safe, effective and not linked to autism.

On Thorsen: Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., WMP Chairman, stated “World Mercury Project calls upon Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, to extradite Thorsen back to the U.S. to face prosecution. We also call upon Secretary of Health and Human Services, Dr. Tom Price, to retract the Thorsen-affiliated autism research papers that are the fruit of illegally conducted research.”

Fraudulent research, failing to follow ethical standards, theft of taxpayer dollars, cover-ups, destruction of data, families denied justice, federal warrants that sit for years while fraudster scientists laugh at America, vaccine injuries that result in children with brain damage, lost pregnancies, and even deaths.

No one ever thought draining The Swamp would be easy, as the vested interests are not going to go quietly. President Trump didn’t do himself any favors by allowing his Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price, M.D. to appoint pro-vaccine Brenda Fitzgerald, M.D. as CDC Director and Administrator of the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) in July of 2017.

While it is true President Trump has been besieged on all sides precisely because he is upsetting the corrupt Status Quo, he undermines his own support by allowing partisan agenda driven individuals into positions of power. In April 2017 Fitzgerald, then commissioner of the Georgia Department of Public Health, demonstrated that she does not have the impartiality required to be ultimate head of an investigation into vaccines by stating “Immunizations are the best way to protect infants and children from childhood diseases, like whooping cough and measles that can be life-threatening at young ages”, and “It is critical for parents to talk to their child’s doctor to ensure they are up-to-date on immunizations, because no child should have to suffer a vaccine-preventable illness.” These do not sound like the words of someone with an open mind towards investigating vaccine safety.

Now that he’s got the Deep State on defense, he should press his advantage by fulfilling his promises that gained him cross-party support that helped get him elected. He must move forward with his promise of appointing Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. to lead a special commission to investigate vaccine safety, a Vaccine Safety Commission. This special commission should be empowered with the access and support necessary to take their investigation where ever it may lead.

American newborns, children, their families and the very fabric of American society relies on President Trump acting quickly to uncover the real truth about vaccine safety. If it is true that some of today’s vaccines are unsafe, then delay means needless continued suffering and destroyed lives.

Eli Lilly Executive Likely To Be HHS Secretary – And No, This Is Not A Joke

Former Lilly USA President Alex Azar is likely to be appointed new HHS Secretary according to anonymous White House sources. Eli Lilly is the company that introduced thimerosal, the toxic, mercury-based vaccine preservative still used in vaccines given to children and pregnant women. It has also been proven to cause autism.

If President Trump nominates Azar for the position, it will represent a marked departure from Trump’s pre-election promises to “fix” the autism epidemic. Previously, Autism Investigated heavily protested the appointment of the current CDC director Brenda Fitzgerald. Trump also nominated Scott Gottlieb to run FDA, a major pharma shill and defender of dangerous vaccines.

Azar’s appointment would truly be a case of the revolving door coming full-circle. Before working as an executive for Eli Lilly for 10 years, Azar was deputy HHS Secretary and general counsel for HHS under the Bush Administration. Azar was at HHS when GOP Senator Bill Frist led an effort to shield Lilly from litigation while he was receiving thousands in campaign contributions.

How is it that a president who met with Robert F. Kennedy Jr. earlier this year to discuss a vaccine safety commission ends up appointing an executive from one of the biggest corporate perpetrators of vaccine injury? How is it that that same president met with Dr. Andrew Wakefield last year?

The White House had reportedly been arranging for Kennedy to meet with officials from the FDA and NIH. Not surprisingly, those agencies dismissed his concerns yet again. Does President Trump expect that having an Eli Lilly executive at the top of HHS will somehow change that? How can he take the vaccine issue seriously if he’s putting people with deep industry ties in high government positions? If Trump’s appointees are not willing to take action on this important issue, then President Trump should directly intervene.

But setting the vaccine issue aside, there is another issue with Azar running HHS: his primary support for a presidential candidate with very, very low energy.

CDC Director Tweets Vaccine Indoctrination Video

Brenda Fitzgerald has just tweeted an indoctrination video about how great Rotavirus and pneumonia vaccines are, proclaiming vaccines one of the greatest achievements of the last decade. Meanwhile, vaccines were giving countless American children autism that entire time.

What did President Trump expect when he let such a person take that position? He campaigned on a platform of vaccine safety, which would require the CDC to stop lying about poisoning children. Yet he appointed exactly the wrong person for the job.

Has President Trump backed down from his promise to put together a vaccine safety commission, even though he insisted he wouldn’t? If he hasn’t, how will such a commission function with someone like Fitzgerald running CDC? She has nothing to lose from undermining such a commission. If Trump gets voted out and she gets replaced, she’ll just get her cozy job at pharma four years sooner.

A federal agency may work more efficiently if it’s run by someone who thinks like her subordinates, but in this case it’s efficiency for an evil purpose. The people working under Fitzgerald who are part of the problem should not be at CDC either. They belong at pharmaceutical companies, at best.

Wall Street Journal: CDC Director Says She Is A “Strong Advocate for Vaccines”

New CDC Chief Lays Out Priorities as Agency Faces Cuts

 
Brenda Fitzgerald, the new director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said she will prioritize a wide range of public health issues, from fighting infectious disease to strengthening early-childhood development.


By Betsy McKay

The new director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said she will prioritize a wide range of public health issues, from fighting infectious disease to strengthening early-childhood development, as the federal agency faces potentially substantial budget cuts.

In an interview at the end of her first week on the job, Brenda Fitzgerald said she would make a strong case for public health spending should the agency fall on tough times.

“When there are austere times, the most important factor is that you have to know what your mission is,” Dr. Fitzgerald said. “You make sure what you’re doing is indeed fulfilling that role, because there are certain things that I believe only public health can do,” she said.

The Trump administration has proposed a $1.22 billion, or 17%, cut to the CDC’s budget for fiscal 2018, including reductions in chronic disease prevention and epidemic preparedness.

Many public health experts welcomed Dr. Fitzgerald’s July 7 appointment, because she is a public health advocate and leader. But she has been criticized for a Georgia childhood obesity program that accepted funds from Coca-Cola Co.’s foundation and for offering controversial anti-aging remedies as a practicing obstetrician-gynecologist.

Dr. Fitzgerald, 71 years old, grew up in Middlesboro, Ky., a town in coal-mining country. She “met this cute boy in medical school” at Emory University and has been in Georgia ever since, practicing as an OB-GYN for three decades, raising a daughter and son, and serving state Republican leaders. She was Georgia’s public health commissioner from 2011 until she was named to her CDC post.

She said she is commuting to her new job from her home in Carrollton, Ga., nearly 60 miles west of Atlanta because “that cute boy I married—he grew up there. He’s not moving.”

She calls herself a “strong advocate for vaccines” and says she supports making reliable contraception available, two issues that have been scrutinized by the new administration.

Rates of premature births can be brought down by spacing births, saving on health-care costs, she said, an approach that generally requires contraception. Caring for a premature infant in the first year, of life costs about 10 times as much as caring for a healthy, full-term baby, making it one of the most expensive health-care needs, and that added costs extend well beyond the first year. “It’s huge,” she said.

She believes decisions about abortion should be made “between a woman and her doctor,” with limitations. “There’s absolutely no case once a child is viable,” she said. But, she added, “I did not do abortions in my practice.”

The CDC collects data on abortions but doesn’t fund them.

Dr. Fitzgerald said that preventing the spread of infectious disease will remain a priority for the agency. “Quite frankly, it’s our responsibility,” she said.

That includes doing more to prevent antibiotic resistance, tracking emerging infections overseas and helping other countries build their infectious-disease-fighting capacities, she said.

Battling the U.S.’s biggest killers will also be a focus for the CDC under her leadership, she said, though she didn’t cite specifics. Fighting opioid addiction—which killed more than 33,000 people in the U.S. in 2015—is a priority for the administration, her spokeswoman said.

She said she also wants to make advances in an area she championed as Georgia’s public health commissioner: children’s early brain development. “If we can change something at the very beginning that is a simple intervention like language development, that’s a phenomenal chance to influence that child’s entire life,” she said.

Dr. Fitzgerald has come under fire for the Georgia SHAPE childhood obesity program, which took $1 million from 2013 to 2015 from the Coca-Cola Foundation to promote physical activity.

She said that the state purposely sought partners from every sector, including large area employers such as Coca-Cola, to join its $57 million program. The program promotes eating fresh fruits and vegetables in addition to physical activity, she said.

“I think if you’re going to solve a big problem, you’ve got to have a public-private partnership,” she said. “What you have to do is start at that place on which there is agreement and work from there.”

As a practicing OB-GYN, Dr. Fitzgerald said she took continuing education courses to become a fellow in anti-aging medicine after getting many questions from menopausal patients. Such therapies include bioidentical hormones, which are identical in molecular structure to the hormones women make in their bodies.

They are often marketed as a safer alternative to traditional hormone replacement therapy, but have skeptics because they haven’t been well studied. The Food and Drug Administration says it doesn’t have evidence that bioidentical hormones are safer or more effective than other hormone products.

“One, I was curious, two, I wanted to see what the scientific data was there,” she said. “I wanted to be able to answer patients’ questions.”

She said she believes there is more research to be done on the therapies. She said she closed her OB-GYN practice when she became public health commissioner in Georgia, and “I will not be practicing private medicine here at CDC.”

Send RFK Jr.’s Tucker Interview to Brenda Fitzgerald!

Above is the video of Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s latest interview with Tucker Carlson. Please send the link to Brenda Fitzgerald to further emphasize that the side she has been on has been the side of lies! Also let her know who she is in good company with: idiot John Oliver, who said America didn’t want Trump to be president.

Now that Fitzgerald is CDC director she can be found on the CDC director’s Twitter handle: @CDCDirector.

So just tweet to her there – also be sure to include the #MAGA hashtag with it. That way, you can remind her that your vote contributed to her being CDC director. Ergo, she has an obligation to stop behaving like an utter liar. Also remind her that shutting down discussion of vaccines has become a lefty thing.

Since Autism Investigated’s previous request for readers to write her, Fitzgerald still has yet to take over the @CDCDirector account. We’re having an impact already! Our open letter also got some attention from Brad Reed of RawStory as well as from FiercePharma.

Also note from our friends at World Mercury Project:

RFK, Jr. on the Tucker Carlson show! SHARE! They discussed the shutting down of vaccine discussion in the media due to pharma financial influence, liability protection for vaccine mfrs., lack of vaccine safety science and more. Be sure to share your story and thank Tucker Carlson for discussing this important issue: comments@foxnewsinsider.com. For free updates, go to www.worldmercuryproject.org

Write New Child-Poisoner-in-Chief Brenda Fitzgerald

Write Brenda Fitzgerald on Twitter to @CDCDirector and tell her how you feel about her being new child-poisoner-in-chief at CDC.

Here are some ideas:

Tell her about your vaccine-injured child.

Tell her about the criminality of her agency and how you now regard her to be the chief mafia boss.

Tell her how all the science shows vaccines cause autism

Tell her how their 14 “studies” or whatever bullshit they cite doesn’t count as science.

Tell her that Dr. Andrew Wakefield was exonerated by the journal The Lancet.

Tell her mercury is still in vaccines.

Tell her Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is one of the most outspoken people against the cover-up by the vaccine program, even though his uncle signed it into existence.

Basically call her a liar, tell her the impact it has on children like yours and tell her you plan to make her job deservedly miserable. Also tell her that herd immunity is also a lie and that invoking it is basically telling people to sacrifice their children.

Just say anything you can think of so long as it’s not a physical threat. Also tell her that vaccines are inherently dangerous thanks to people like her. And also tell her that any benefit attributable to them was because of safety standards passed into law thanks to anti-vaccination activism.

Finally, tell her that the problem is and always will be vaccines. Their promoters, makers, sellers etc. totally lie about their risks and intentionally poison children for personal profit. As long as that is reality, you will never support vaccines. You could never be in favor of vaccines for moral reasons. And you will stand opposed to her as child-poisoner-in-chief for the duration of her tenure.

 

BREAKING: Brenda Fitzgerald Picked to Lead CDC

The headquarters of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (CNS photo/Nancy Wiechec) (Nov. 4, 2011)

Read Autism Investigated’s open letter to President Trump protesting Brenda Fitzgerald’s appointment.

From HHS:

Today, Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price, M.D., named Brenda Fitzgerald, M.D., as the 17th Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Administrator of the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR).

“Today, I am extremely proud and excited to announce Dr. Brenda Fitzgerald as the new Director of the CDC,” said Secretary Price. “Having known Dr. Fitzgerald for many years, I know that she has a deep appreciation and understanding of medicine, public health, policy and leadership—all qualities that will prove vital as she leads the CDC in its work to protect America’s health 24/7. We look forward to working with Dr. Fitzgerald to achieve President Trump’s goal of strengthening public health surveillance and ensuring global health security at home and abroad. Congratulations to Dr. Fitzgerald and her family.”

Dr. Fitzgerald has been the commissioner of the Georgia Department of Public Health (DPH) and state health officer for the past six years. She replaces Dr. Anne Schuchat, who has been the acting CDC director and acting ATSDR administrator since January 20. Dr. Schuchat is returning to her role as CDC’s principal deputy director.

“Additionally, I’d like to extend my deep appreciation and thanks to Dr. Anne Schuchat for her exemplary service as acting director of the CDC,” said Secretary Price. “We thank Dr. Schuchat and her team for their dedication in our public health efforts to keep Americans safe and for their work to ensure a seamless transition. We look forward to continuing to work with Dr. Schuchat in her role as principal deputy director of CDC.”

Dr. Fitzgerald, a board-certified obstetrician-gynecologist, has practiced medicine for three decades. As Georgia DPH Commissioner, Dr. Fitzgerald oversaw various state public health programs and directed the state’s 18 public health districts and 159 county health departments. Prior to that, Dr. Fitzgerald held numerous leadership positions. She served on the board and as president of the Georgia OB-GYN Society and she worked as a health care policy advisor with House Speaker Newt Gingrich and Senator Paul Coverdell. She has served as a Senior Fellow and Chairman of the Board for the Georgia Public Policy Foundation.     

Dr. Fitzgerald holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Microbiology from Georgia State University and a Doctor of Medicine degree from Emory University School of Medicine. She completed post-graduate training at the Emory-Grady Hospitals in Atlanta and held an assistant clinical professorship at Emory Medical Center. As a Major in the U.S. Air Force, Dr. Fitzgerald served at the Wurtsmith Air Force Strategic Air Command (SAC) Base in Michigan and at the Andrews Air Force Base in Washington, D.C.

Do Not Tap Brenda Fitzgerald to Run CDC, President Trump!

Below is an open letter from the editor to President Trump urging him to rescind any consideration to appointing Georgia health commissioner Brenda Fitzgerald to CDC director.

Dear President Trump,

I was a huge supporter of you since before the primary contests. I supported you because you were miles ahead of all the other candidates in supporting vaccine safety.

So I was very disappointed to read the following from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution:

President Donald Trump is expected to tap the head of the Georgia Department of Public Health as the new director of the Atlanta-based Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, according to two administration sources.

This is unacceptable. That same person, Dr. Brenda Fitzgerald, wrote in that same paper three years ago this:

I’ve heard all the arguments against vaccination. All have been debunked, including the infamous 1980s study in Europe about a similar vaccine for measles, mumps and rubella, and a supposed link – that we now know to be false – to autism, which shattered vaccine use in Europe. 

The lead author of that “infamous” study is who you met with last summer, Dr. Andrew Wakefield. Even the journal that retracted his paper know their basis for doing so is false.

If you want a genuine vaccine safety commission as you promised Robert F. Kennedy Jr., it will not work with federal agency heads all wanting to keep the status quo. You have already appointed someone to run the FDA who has testified that he will challenge you on vaccine safety. There was no major outcry then because, unlike CDC, FDA does not dictate federal vaccine policy.

The CDC policies, by contrast, influence mandatory state vaccination policies throughout the entire country. Its chief responsibilities include the conflicting positions of safety regulation and routine promotion. A senior scientist from the CDC has since come forward with allegations that he and his colleagues manipulated and hid research results. At the time, you tweeted:

Shortly before the election, the previous CDC director blocked the whistleblower who you said was proving you right about vaccines from testifying under oath in a deposition. Yet every indication suggests that the person you are reportedly considering for the role would do the same.

I understand the temptation to appoint establishment-friendly people as you seek Senate support to repeal Obamacare. But like Obamacare, the autism epidemic has also heaped tremendous healthcare costs on the American people. We will not eliminate the rising costs of Obamacare by accepting the rising cost of autism.

In a meeting you held with advocates, you were told that you were the only one who can fix the autism epidemic. You replied that you will. You also said in front of 23 million viewers that you would push for safer vaccinations and that you believed doing so would have a major impact on autism. Many people voted for you this past election because of that.

Now is your chance to fulfill your campaign promises. We appreciate that you have not backed down over your desire to put together a vaccine safety commission. Such a commission can only be effective, however, with federal health agency chiefs open to its policies. FDA commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb is already not open and neither would Dr. Brenda Fitzgerald be should you appoint her CDC director. Please withdraw any consideration of Dr. Fitzgerald. That way, we can truly end the autism epidemic and Make America Great Again!
