Brian Deer Became Opposition Researcher for Glaxo to Avoid Litigation

“THE ‘COMPLAINANT'” -Cartoon satirizing Brian Deer’s denials of pharmaceutical industry support outside the General Medical Council hearing where Drs. Andrew Wakefield and John Walker-Smith were found guilty of publishing on the vaccine-autism link and ordered to be struck off as a result of Deer’s complaint.  http://adversevaccinereaction.blogspot.com/

How do you go from writing articles critical of a crooked pharmaceutical company to being its biggest opposition researcher-for-hire? For Brian Deer, the answer was that it threatened to sue him.

He became a Glaxo opposition researcher to avoid a Glaxo lawsuit. The law firm that issued the threat was the same firm that defended the company against DTP vaccine injury cases and would defend it against MMR vaccine injury cases.

In 1994, Deer wrote articles for The Sunday Times critical of the safety of the antibiotic Septrin made by GlaxoSmithKline’s precursor Wellcome. That company’s lawyers responded with a legal threat in the form of a preservation letter:

We refer to our letter of 18th February when we informed you that we were acting for Wellcome Plc in the context of the article that you were then planning to publish about our clients.

Our clients were appalled at the nature and content of the two articles that appeared in your paper on 27th February, and are considering their legal position. We note than it is intended to publish a further article on 6th March, and as a matter of fairness, we would request that you provide our clients with details of what this article is to cover, so that the have an opportunity to comment and make you aware of any inaccuracies.

Further, we must ask you to preserve all materials that have been generated and used in compilation of the various articles as they may be required to be disclosed in the course of legal proceedings.

Yours faithfully,
DAVIES ARNOLD COOPER

Within weeks, Deer completely stopped his investigation of the company that would become GlaxoWellcome one year later and GlaxoSmithKline five years after that. He would never conduct another investigation into that company again. He would instead conduct many “investigations” into those injured by its vaccines.

His first victim was Margaret Best. She was the mother of a vaccine-injured man and was interviewed in the very last article from Deer’s 1994 Septrin investigation.

She had just won a multi-million dollar lawsuit against Wellcome and was quoted recommending Septrin victims seek specialist lawyers for possible litigation. Years later, Deer would publish an article claiming her son’s disability was not caused by vaccination.

In 2011, Autism Investigated’s editor showed he omitted any mention of her in the version of the Septrin article posted on his website. He chopped the two paragraphs of text in which she was quoted.

Deer would subsequently claim he just posted a shorter version published in one of the newspaper’s editions. Yet in his later article denying her son’s vaccine injury, he would lie that he had not spoken to her prior to his work for that piece.

Margaret Best was not the only person Deer turned on following his very short-lived Septrin investigation. He also turned on investigative journalist Martin Walker, an old ally from Deer’s earlier investigations of Wellcome’s AIDS drug AZT.

In 1993, Walker published the book Dirty Medicine that discussed Deer’s AZT investigations and the blowback he faced from pro-AZT activists. The book also mentioned Septrin’s defects and Margaret Best’s vaccine case, likely inspiring Deer to write about both.

Just after Wellcome’s legal threat against Brian Deer’s newspaper, he made an angry phone call to Martin Walker attacking him for his book’s criticism of Wellcome. Walker later wrote of the exchange in an epic open letter to Deer in 2008:

I knew that was the case the day that I picked up my phone to hear your angry voice berating me for having groundlessly criticised Wellcome in my book. This call came around the time you wrote your lengthy but anodyne feature in The Sunday Times on the Wellcome Foundation and it’s Trust. In your phone call, the first one I had from you since I worked with you on your chapter in Dirty Medicine, you accused me of writing terrible things about Wellcome, without giving them the right of reply. I recall you saying something like ‘you’re no better than the mafia, you just attack people without them being able to defend themselves’. I must admit that I was very confused and shocked by this call, but I did get the firm impression of someone trying to cover their past tracks, brushing the soft earth with a piece of driftwood.

So Brian Deer told Martin Walker, “you’re no better than the mafia, you just attack people without them being able to defend themselves.” Just before that, Wellcome’s lawyers told Deer’s newspaper in their legal threat, “we would request that you provide our clients with details of what this article is to cover, so that the have an opportunity to comment and make you aware of any inaccuracies.” Wellcome was speaking to Martin Walker through Brian Deer.

No wonder he cut any mention of Margaret Best in his final article of his Septrin exposé on his website. Had he left it in, it would point to the fact that he completely turned on her so Wellcome won’t sue him into bankruptcy.

Even that wasn’t enough for the company that is now GlaxoSmithKline. In 2004, Brian Deer would use stolen medical records from children that developed autism from MMR vaccination to begin his attacks on MMR-autism research. Deer obtained them from the GlaxoSmithKline-funded Head of Medicine Sir Mark Pepys at the hospital where those children were seen.

Deer’s attacks were prompted by the withdrawal of legal aid from families suing for MMR vaccine injury. At that time, GlaxoSmithKline was represented by lawyers from Davies Arnold Cooper. That was the same firm that threatened Deer’s newspaper all the way back in 1994.

Sir Mark Pepys – GlaxoSmithKline’s Medical Record-Leaking “Superstar”

“ARGUABLY THE FINEST PRIVATE COLLECTION OF CHILDRENS MEDICAL RECORDS..” -Cartoon satirizing a photo of freelance writer Brian Deer, http://adversevaccinereaction.blogspot.com/

“I know the names and family backgrounds of all 12 of the children enrolled in the study, including the child enrolled from the United States.” – Brian Deer on children seen at London’s Royal Free Hospital, BMJ, 2010

“Brian Deer has done an excellent job.” – Royal Free’s Head of Medicine Dr. Mark Pepys, BBC Radio, 2011

The GlaxoSmithKline puppet who bullied coauthors of the Wakefield autism-vaccine paper into signing a fraudulent retraction also leaked the medical records of children in that paper.

As you would expect from a doctor who cares nothing for patient safety, Dr. Mark Pepys does not care about patient confidentiality either. He has praised the freelance writer who obtained confidential medical information about patients seen at Pepys’ own hospital. Dr. Pepys even allowed that writer to quote him divulging information he had promised to keep secret.

The writer Pepys praised, Brian Deer, had no right to the names or family backgrounds of any of those children. That didn’t phase Mark Pepys who agreed to be interviewed by him.

Even worse, Pepys was the Head of Medicine at the Royal Free Hospital when Deer obtained confidential information on patients seen there. No investigation as to how that happened was ever launched. Instead, the Royal Free “investigated” doctors who saw the children including Dr. Andrew Wakefield.

Mark Pepys is 100% responsible for all leaks of patient information to the media, given his position at Royal Free. In his interview with Brian Deer, Pepys revealed he had no respect for confidentiality by leaking conditions for the departure of Dr. Wakefield from the hospital staff:

“one of the conditions of him going away was that I wasn’t supposed to say anything critical of him to anybody, for ever after.”

That condition wasn’t kept by GlaxoSmithKline’s designated “superstar.”

Any patient who enrolls in Sir Mark Pepys’ GlaxoSmithKline trials should know that Sir Leaksalot will sell out both their safety and their privacy for commercial gain.

INFOWARS: INCOMPETENT FBI TRIED TO FRAME DR. HUMPHRIES FOR DEATH THREATS FROM PSYCHO VACCINE PUSHER

Natural News proved her innocence

InfoWars FBI
(Natural News) – In a bombshell Counterthink interview filmed at the InfoWars studios in Austin, Texas, Dr. Suzanne Humphries revealed how the FBI attempted to frame her for making death threats against herself. The full interview, available at Counterthink.com (or see video below), reveals how the FBI lied to Dr. Humphries and attempted to use an elaborate ploy to criminalize Dr. Humphries (or the people close to her).

Natural News was pivotal in exposing the conspiracy fraud of the FBI and helping make sure Dr. Humphries was not arrested and falsely indicted by federal authorities. As Natural News reported several months ago, Dr. Humphries was subjected to a series of death threats culminating in a vile “mass shooting” threat that detailed exactly how a hater of Dr. Humphries planned to shoot her at a public event. Upon receiving this threat, Dr. Humphries immediately filed criminal complaints with both the Austin Police Department and the FBI. This action generated an Austin PD case number which Dr. Humphries privately noted.

After Natural News went public with details of the original letter, the person who wrote it apparently panicked and realized they were likely going to be hunted down by federal authorities and criminally prosecuted. So they faxed over an apology letter to both the Austin PD and the FBI, claiming they weren’t serious about their vile death threats targeting Dr. Humphries. Importantly, in this apology letter, they cited the Austin PD case number.

The FBI then seized upon this as implied “proof” that falsely claimed Dr. Humphries must have been the author all along, since, as the FBI claimed, Austin PD case numbers are not available to the public and are kept secure. (This claim turns out to be utterly false, as Natural News easily proved, keep reading…)

Armed with this Austin PD case number and a bogus claim that such case numbers are private, the FBI turned around and began aggressively threatening Dr. Humphries, claiming that she or someone close to her must have generated the death threats in the first place. In a phone call, Dr. Humphries told Natural News that she was aghast upon realizing the FBI was now targeting her as a potential criminal instead of going after the real person who made the death threats in the first place.

Yes, in America, if you report a serious crime to the FBI, they can quite literally turn it around and try to frame YOU for that very crime. (Read FBIcorruption.news for more coverage of the collapse of credibility at the FBI.)

Corrupt FBI claimed Austin PD giving out case number is a “conspiracy theory”

When Dr. Humphries told the FBI that perhaps the Austin PD had given out the case number to someone, FBI agents threatened to hang up on Dr. Humphries during a phone call, claiming that such talk was a “conspiracy theory.” They insisted that the knowledge of the case number was proof that the original death threat had come from inside Dr. Humphries’ circle of close associates (and that Dr. Humphries was somehow the mastermind of all this).

Keep in mind this is the same FBI that was recently run by James Comey, a sedition traitor who turned the FBI into a politicized, corrupt agency that has lost nearly all credibility in the minds of the American people. Dr. Humphries went to the FBI in the hopes of seeing justice served, but instead, she got targeted with a false blame game in exactly the same way the FBI targeted candidate Donald Trump. (There’s also a huge lesson in all this, which is that if you try to report a crime to the FBI, they may ultimately charge YOU with that crime!)

Note, too, that whatever the FBI doesn’t want to believe, they dismiss it as a “conspiracy theory,” even though they were essentially accusing Dr. Humphries of something that can only be called a conspiracy. The FBI recommends conspiracy charges against people on a routine basis, proving that the FBI itself is fully informed that conspiracies really exist. To hear FBI agents claim they don’t believe in “conspiracies” seems absurd.

Natural News acquires Austin PD case number with a simple request

Here’s what finally blew apart the FBI’s false, bogus conspiracy theory: I assigned a reporter to contact the Austin Police Department and explain they were writing a story for Science.news, a website we publish, wish will also carry this story. This reporter requested the case number of the Dr. Suzanne Humphries death threat complaint.

The Austin PD promptly gave us the case number, no questions asked.

For the record, the case number was sent to our reporter by “APD Records Management,” from the email address: Management.Records@austintexas.gov
Date: Tue, Feb 13, 2018 at 1:05 PM

The email was authored by a “Public Information Sergeant” whose name we are not publishing, because he didn’t do anything wrong and doesn’t deserve any condemnation for his role in this. His email said:

Afternoon,

I can report that there’s an on-going investigation being conducted pertaining to this incident and the case # 18-XXXXXXX.

[We have redacted the case number for this public article.]

I then forwarded that case number to Dr. Humphries to confirm whether it was a match. Indeed, it was a perfect match.

In other words, the Austin PD hands out these case numbers to anyone who says they’re a journalist, without any hesitation. This means the FBI was either lying all along or is run by incompetent agents who have no idea how law enforcement actually works.

The FBI has become worse than a joke; it’s actually a threat to the freedoms of innocent Americans

As part of the answer to that question, here’s a recent video of an FBI agent busting a move on the dance floor, accidentally dropping his firearm, then shooting an innocent bystander as he stupidly grabs the gun by the trigger:

This is the most insanely stupid thing I’ve ever seen carried out by a supposed member of law enforcement, and it’s no surprise this is coming straight from the FBI, which apparently dispatches agents to dance parties and trains them how to do back handsprings but not how to use retaining holsters. At some point, the FBI might want to think about teaching its agents why it’s a bad idea to pick up pistols by the trigger, too. (Note that the gun did not shoot anyone until a human being pulled the trigger, proving yet again that guns don’t kill people… stupid FBI agents do.)

So now we know the FBI was either lying, or stupid, or possibly both. And instead of trying to find the actual psycho who threatened Dr. Humphries in the first place, the FBI spends taxpayer dollars trying to frame the female victim for the very crime carried out against her.

This is what the FBI has come to in America today, under the traitorous “leadership: of James Comey, who frankly should be spending the rest of his life behind bars for treason.

Rosenstein Trump

Autism Investigated: Deputy A.G. Rod Rosenstein’s sister runs the vaccine program.

I don’t know about you, but after running this investigation, I’ve lost all remaining faith in the FBI. As much as I’ve been a long-time supporter of law enforcement, veterans and the military, I now realize the FBI is a total disgrace and a threat to the freedom and liberties of innocent Americans. Calling the FBI to investigate a serious crime is about as useful as calling the Mob to protect your nightclub.

Notice, too, that this entire story is blackballed by the corporate-run media, which is suddenly pro-FBI even though the same media has bashed law enforcement for as long as any of us can remember.

Watch my full interview with Dr. Humphries to learn even more, and share this story widely. This needs to get posted on The Free Thought Project and other websites. It’s even Drudge-worthy.

Crooked Hillary Clinton – “I believe in science!”

la-1469126158-snap-photo

In her sleep-inducing nomination speech at the Democratic National Convention, Crooked Hillary Clinton appeared to cryptically attack Donald Trump for his stance on vaccinations by saying he does not believe in “science.” While she only specifically mentioned climate change, it would appear to anyone who has followed this issue that she also meant vaccines.

Early last year on Twitter, Crooked Hillary Clinton had this to say about the questioning of vaccine safety:

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

Later that year in the second GOP presidential debate, Donald Trump expressed a very different view:

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.

Now fast forward to the Democratic National Convention that just happened, where Crooked Hillary accuses Donald Trump of not believing in “science”:

I believe in science…Now, you didn’t hear any of this from Donald Trump at his convention….But we already know he doesn’t believe these things.” 

The choice between Donald Trump and Crooked Hillary is as clear as a choice between vaccine safety and continued lies about risks from those vaccines. So this November, get out and vote for Donald Trump to be our next president and Make America Great Again!

Threats Prove Cartoonist Right About Vaccine McCarthyism

Editor’s Note: After two years, The Epoch Times’ blog section is now closed as the site is undergoing a redesign. All Epoch Blogs from Autism Investigated are still archived. There is exciting news to come about The Epoch Times pertaining to Autism Investigated.

By Jake Crosby

Above is a cartoon originally published on DailyKos by Keith Knight, author of the K Chronicles. Knight drew the above cartoon to bring attention to what he called the “New McCarthyism” – the hypocrisy and double-standard surrounding discussions about vaccines.

As anyone could have predicted, the thread was soon awash in nasty comments including threats so bad he eventually caved and removed the whole cartoon – proving Knight right about Vaccine McCarthyism.

“I took it down myself. A few comments crossed the line with me, so I took it down,” he reportedly said of the cartoon. “I can take the personal threats…but once it goes beyond that — ”

Making clear how inflammatory the vaccine issue was even when compared to other inflammatory subjects, he said:

“I may do a follow-up at some point, but for now I’ll stick to less inflammatory subjects like abortion, Israel/Palestine, and gun control.”

Abortion clinics have been bombed, a member of Israeli parliament has been called a “war criminal” at an academic panel discussion, and the National Rifle Association’s famous slogan is “I’ll give you my gun when you pry it from my cold, dead hands. Yet in Knight’s own experience, the vaccine issue is even more inflammatory than these other inflammatory issues.

The Daily Cartoonist weighed in on the situation with the following commentary:

“Expressing unpopular opinion is not for everyone. Side affects vary but may include pissing off people who think of themselves as tolerant, inflaming internet comment sections or receiving unwanted threats to oneself or family.”

Such threats were apparently fair game to one blogger who deeply despised Knight’s cartoon:

“The only heartening bit is how most of the commenters contribute to giving Knight a new sphincter.”

Direct those same kinds of threats at that very blogger, and watch the incitement turn to self-pity.

While the DailyKos took no apparent action against the trolls making the threats before the entire post was taken down, it has its own unique style of censorship like those of other left-wing, big government sites. The Huffington Post enforces censorship by removing articles without any explanation or warning. “Throwing a writer to the wolves” is what Salon did by retracting Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s “Deadly Immunity” article, according to the site’s own founder. But the preferred method of censorship at DailyKos is banning any commenter who argues vaccines cause autism.

If DailyKos was not directly involved in the removal of the post or even in the incitement of trolls (both of which I have a hard time believing), the site certainly created the perfect environment for the New McCarthyism Knight denounced to take root by banning people who would otherwise support him in the comment thread. Unlike at DailyKos, expressing different views will not get anyone banned from commenting at Autism Investigated; making threats will get a commenter banned.

So the cartoon is now posted here, and is here to stay.

Addendum: After one commenter’s reported experience with having comments censored at DailyKos, a decision has been made to not allow any comments that link to that site. If DailyKos will shut down discussion about topics routinely discussed here, then there is no reason to link any readers to that site only to be banned from commenting. Unless DailyKos overturns its policy of censorship, any submitted comment that links to DailyKos will be deleted. No exceptions.
