Ethan Lindenberger To Tell The Senate How Mother Put Him in an Oven

Reddit

Time to fire your six-figure-salaried PR agents, CDC. Ethan Lindenberger has just found the easily-swayed group your consultants completely missed: teenagers. He’s even going to testify before the Senate on Tuesday.

Ethan Lindenberger is totally not a spiteful teenager. Just ask every mainstream media source. He said so himself, “I’m a very obedient child. I don’t really try to go against my mom. Even though I’m 18, I don’t pull that card.”

He’s a very obedient child! He doesn’t pull that card! He just posts that meme likening his mother’s decision to not get him toxic vaccinations as an infant to her putting him in an oven. No big deal!

Oh, and he called his parents “stupid” in his original Reddit post to internet strangers asking how to get vaccinated. And then there’s the fact that he never even called or emailed the CDC, which was his whole basis for going against his mom in the first place.

It’s too bad the archaic CDC isn’t like Reddit. Dialing your iPhone won’t show the world what an obediant child you are by goading strangers into piling on your public insults of your parents. That oven meme of his mother would never see the light of day either. Do a better job CDC! If there’s one group that hates parents as much as you, it’s teenagers!

Start your own message board for angry teenagers where they can vent their hatred at their parents. What better way to emphasize to these impressionable, Bernie-loving kids that only the government is what really has their best interests at heart?

Meanwhile, Lindenberger will testify to the US Senate how his mother put him in an oven.

JB Handley Writes Gaffe-Filled Book About The Autism Epidemic

 ***Correction: Verstraeten study was published in 2003, not 2013 as stated in the video.

“This is a complete waste of everyone’s time. Every person involved in the dust-up has been a champion of our kids and they all deserve our respect. This is a movement fraught with tension, stress, and confusion. Time for everyone to grab their toys, leave the playground, take a deep breath, and get back to the task at hand.” – JB Handley dismissing the revelation by Autism Investigated’s editor that false representation to congressional staff was committed by SafeMinds.

Years ago, Generation Rescue founder JB Handley accused the wife of a known vaccine shill of secretly operating a neurodiversity blog. So confident was Handley, he even promised her a website he created to expose her husband’s lies on condition that she wasn’t the blog’s operator. Six months later, JB Handley turned over PaulOffit.com to Bonnie Offit. Eight years later, Handley still hasn’t learned his lesson about the importance of knowing stuff. His book How To End The Autism Epidemic proves it. Filled with inaccuracies, it’s reflective of just how out of depth JB Handley is on an issue that’s preoccupied his life for two decades.

His book gives disproportionate importance to events that happened this year, even as the epidemic has been raging for decades. Reading it, one might get the sense that the most important events all happened in 2018. The most featured study, for example, was published nine months ago. That, however, may partially explain why Handley gets some key facts wrong. He has a personal stake in committing the gravest error, however. In his book, JB Handley pushed the damaging myth that a doctor gave two conflicting expert opinions for different children seeking vaccine injury compensation. Although Dr. Andrew Zimmerman had expressed an opinion that compensated child Hannah Poling’s autism was caused by vaccination, he was never her expert witness. His opinion was also given after the concession.

A congressional hearing was almost held in 2013 over the falsehood that was spread by Canary Party. The hearing was cancelled after the falsehood was corrected by the Hannah Poling’s mother in the comments of the Age of Autism blog that Handley’s group sponsors. Congressional council then announced the hearing’s cancellation for being “overly divisive.” That clearly meant it would pit parent against parent. Autism Investigated broke the news of the cancellation. Instead of stating the real reason for the cancellation, Handley wrongly blamed a vaccine front group.

JB Handley played a role in the failure. Prior to the 2012 hearing, a lobbyist working for Canary Party Chairman Mark Blaxill falsely represented parent-scientist Brian Hooker to congressional staff. Handley dismissed the news entirely, calling it “a complete waste of everyone’s time” in the comments of Age of Autism. He then demanded “everyone…get back to the task at hand,” indicating Hooker and Blaxill should work together.

Mark Blaxill was subsequently discovered to have turned the autism omnibus attorneys against their own expert witnesses. He brutally smeared Dr. Mark and David Geier and even disparaged Dr. Andrew Wakefield, who would never be invited to testify. This was revealed publicly for the first time in emails shared with Autism Investigated. Even after all that, Handley’s support of Blaxill never wavered. Handley has a lot to answer for in his role of pushing Mark Blaxill on the movement against toxic vaccinations, contributing to the congressional failure.

Yet JB Handley goes even further than the cancelled hearing would have gone by demanding the father Jon Poling testify and be cross-examined about his daughter’s case by politicians. Yet Handley also acknowledges that the parents were given a $20 million concession to stay quiet. Strangely, he says that he wouldn’t begrudge other parents for doing exactly what the parents of Hannah Poling had already done. So why is he channeling the vaccine people by hitting her parents up for their daughter’s confidential medical information?

Though Poling is the worst example, there are other key facts that Handley gets wrong. For example, the senior author John Walker-Smith did not stand by the interpretation of the 1998 study as Handley falsely writes. Walker-Smith cosigned the fraudulent interpretation retraction with nine other coauthors. CDC’s Epidemic Intelligence Service Officer Thomas Verstraeten also did not say his 2003 study of the mercury-based vaccine preservative thimerosal was “neutral” with respect to autism, but rather with speech delays and tic disorders. He wanted to cover his autism findings up. These are not trivial errors to make, and both doctors are subsequently let off easy. The probable reason for the errors is simply that Handley did not give either study the attention it deserved when writing his book.

Finally, JB Handley has already taken criticism from many people because his book even recommends certain vaccines albeit far less than the current schedule. Handley later changed his position in a radio interview to say that you should have a right to get some vaccines if you want them. He obviously had not thought about that issue very hard. His below defense of the vaccine program on Facebook says it all, demanding of people vastly more knowledgeable than him: “unfriend me.”

(The vaccine program needs to go away, and getting rid of it is the most effective argument at this time.)

It’s totally disingenuous of JB Handley to play the victim when he is trying to dictate the message of the movement with his ignorance. Why Handley demonstrates such poor knowledge of the issues surrounding the autism epidemic after apparently dedicating so many years to it is a mystery. He can’t think of effective policy solutions either. One explanation could be that he conflates ending the autism epidemic with ending his own son’s autism. Whatever the reason, his insistence on controlling the narrative of an issue he has so little understanding of is an unmitigated disaster.

One time Autism Investigated criticized him for saying the government studied “one vaccine and one ingredient” since it’s akin to saying the government ruled them out. He responded, “Don’t spread bullshit.”

Told that the government didn’t study them but rather lies about all vaccines, he grudgingly agreed with Autism Investigated.

“Yeah, no shit.”

FAIL: CDC’s “Vaccines Do Not Cause Autism” Page Features Clone-Counting “Meta-Analysis”

Five cohort studies involving 1,256,407 children, and five case-control studies involving 9,920 children were included in this analysis. Abstract of the clone-counting “meta-analysis”

Remember that “meta-analysis” mainstream media cites to claim vaccines were “proven” to not cause autism in over 1.2 million children when the paper actually double-counted every child born in Denmark over a six year period? The clone-counting paper is now being featured on the CDC’s website.

That bogus paper is hyperlinked directly from none other than CDC’s notorious “Vaccines Do Not Cause Autism” webpage. Clicking on it will go directly to the abstract where the bogus “1,256,407” children number is tossed out.

Your tax dollars are being used to push fabricated figures in the name of vaccine safety, what else is new? Well the media has just slammed a newly elected congressman for criticizing the sacrosanct CDC’s vaccine deception. The media is citing that very webpage. The studies themselves are as bad as the meta-analysis pooled from them. The majority of children in the meta-analysis, for example, were part of a study in Denmark where the majority of autism cases started being counted as the mercury-based preservative thimerosal was removed from vaccines. All the others “dozens” of vaccine-autism link-disproving papers are as dishonest as that one. Of course the “meta-analysis” generated to repackage them would be too, as are the vaccine officials in government who promote it and the journalists who further lie about it.

CNN has just reposted a quote by Sanjay Gupta repeating the “1.2 million” myth, proving once again that it earned the title of fake news along with CDC.

CDC Vaccine Chief’s Brother No Longer Heads 2016-Related Investigations

Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein announcing the indictments of 13 Russians, July 13, 2018

Ironically, the big news the week of the election isn’t about any elected office. It’s about an appointed one. Jeff Sessions has just resigned as attorney general. His tenure was defined by his recusal from any investigations related to the 2016 election cycle. Even more ironic, the deputy attorney general who subsequently assumed that role had a much greater conflict than Sessions may have had by any reasonable measure. With Sessions now gone, oversight of 2016-related investigations including the Russia investigation has been passed to his former chief of staff and acting replacement.

But before Sessions resigned, oversight fell on the brother of CDC’s vaccine chief. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s sister is Dr. Nancy Messonnier, director of the CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases.

President Trump’s criticism of toxic vaccines goes back a decade, long before he ran for office. He repeated those criticisms as a candidate on the campaign trial. His election reportedly caused employees at Messonnier’s workplace to cry in the hallways. How ironic that the election would also cause her brother to hold an appointment one rung below a cabinet member?

Throughout the course of Rosenstein’s tenure, he has wielded his unprecedented power with strong authority. He appointed the special counsel that continues to run the Russia investigation and ordered the FBI raid on the office of a now-former lawyer of Trump’s. Most recently, Rosenstein announced the indictments of 13 Russians who will never even stand trial.

Now the power that enabled him to do all that has been stripped away as he appears frozen in his position, if he keeps it. He will not even assume the title of acting attorney general. The reason for Jeff Sessions’ removal may not be about Jeff Sessions so much as it is about Rod Rosenstein.

ROYAL FREE SOURCE Implicates Mark Pepys in Dr. Andrew Wakefield Coauthors’ Retraction

Autism Investigated spoke to an inside source of the Royal Free Hospital from when coauthors of Dr. Andrew Wakefield’s 1998 paper retracted its interpretation of a possible vaccine-autism link. That source has confirmed the hospital’s role in sanctioning the retraction and also implicated then-Head of Medicine Mark Pepys. Pepys forced Wakefield out of the Royal Free two years before the retraction.

When Autism Investigated asked if Pepys was personally involved, the source responded:

“It’s been so many years I can’t say for sure categorically, but I would expect so.”

The source also indicated Pepys was one of “two or three” Royal Free officials who supported the retraction. Prior to the retraction, the hospital released a statement signed by the Royal Free and University College Medical School’s Vice Chancellor lying that Andrew Wakefield concealed his work in vaccine injury litigation from the hospital.

Throughout Pepys’ time at the hospital, he enjoyed considerable support from GlaxoSmithKline and its precursor GlaxoWellcome. He would win the GlaxoSmithKline Prize in 2007 as well as a knighthood from the Queen in 2012 alongside the corporation’s CEO.

Mark Pepys has praised the use of medical records stolen from the Royal Free Hospital for GlaxoSmithKline-sponsored vaccine propaganda. Instead of investigating the theft, he “investigated” his own hospital’s doctors for doing their jobs. That’s because he leaked them just as he forced the Wakefield coauthors’ retraction.

GlaxoSmithKline’s longtime involvement in vaccine misconduct didn’t begin or end with Pepys. Dr. Wakefield has himself stated that he believes he was targeted because GlaxoSmithKline was indemnified from vaccine injury liability over its since-withdrawn measles-mumps-rubella vaccine.

The company also hired an epidemiologist while he was manipulating safety studies of the vaccine preservative thimerosal for CDC. A GlaxoSmithKline adviser was involved in an as-yet-failed attempt at making another CDC scientist recant his statements acknowledging evidence of a vaccine-autism link.

Just last week, a doctor who co-founded Britain’s Cochrane Collaboration was ejected from the organization he helped establish. His dismissal followed his criticism of Cochrane’s favorable review of HPV vaccination: another GSK market. GlaxoSmithKline’s name comes up an awful lot in vaccine issues, more so than any other pharmaceutical company it seems.

However, there have been no greater targets of attack by GlaxoSmithKline than Dr. Andrew Wakefield and the children in his paper whose medical records it stole. There is also no worse GlaxoSmithKline shill than Sir Mark Pepys.

PERVERT ALERT: CDC DIRECTOR FRIEDEN ARRESTED FOR SEX ASSAULT

Move over Ian Lipkin, Obama’s CDC director just topped you big time:

Tom Frieden, the former head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and an ex-New York City Health Commissioner, has been arrested amid allegations he sexually harassed a woman in his Brooklyn apartment.

Police confirmed to Fox News that Frieden, 57, surrendered to the NYPD’s Special Victims Unit at the 77th precinct Friday and has been charged with forcible touching, sexual abuse and harassment.

The charges stem from allegations he groped a woman he knew last October at his home in Brooklyn Heights, ABC7 reported.

This is a married man with two children they’re talking about.

Just before the 2016 election, Frieden blocked a CDC employee from testifying about CDC’s cover-up of the vaccine-autism link.

Last year, Dr. Frieden tweeted a suggestion that autism-vaccine scientist Andrew Wakefield should be prosecuted criminally.

How perfect that Dr. Frieden is prosecuted criminally instead. We should show up at his trial to protest his degeneracy. This is not someone who should be let off lightly. He’s responsible for poisoning many children and his immorality shows through perfectly in this case.

Paul Offit Denies Supporting Cover-up of Vaccine Risks, By Doing Just That

Left: Graph based on results of the study Offit claims showed no difference in autism among hundreds of thousands of Danish children who did or did not get the measles-mump-rubella vaccination. Right: Offit’s reaction to being corrected by the editor at NIH, culminating in the editor’s removal.

Vaccine developer Paul Offit responded to a recent New York Times piece by denying he advocated covering up vaccine risks, only to cover them up in his own piece. The doctor who lied until very recently that he was still “chief” of infectious diseases despite his hospital demotion four years ago consistently lied about three different vaccine side-effects: miscarriage, autism and narcolepsy.

On the CDC’s study showing flu vaccine causes spontaneous abortion, Offit lied:

the only way that the study authors could show a possible problem was to alter their original hypothesis and substratify their data—something that epidemiologists frown upon.

The study itself says:

“The overall adjusted odds ratio (aOR) was 2.0 (95% CI, 1.1–3.6)”

The overall odds of receiving a flu vaccine while pregnant was twice as high among pregnant women who had spontaneous abortions. Offit repeated this same lie that there was no difference from his Daily Beast column. Autism Investigated demanded a retraction at the time, none was ever made.

On the link between vaccines and autism, Offit wrote:

Seventeen subsequent studies in seven countries on three different continents involving hundreds of thousands of children[9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,20,21,22,23,24,25] who did or did not receive the MMR vaccine showed that it doesn’t cause autism.

The one study comparing autism in hundreds of thousands of MMR vaccinated and non-MMR vaccinated children revealed an association (top graph).

On the link between flu vaccination and narcolepsy, Offit lied yet again:

In 2015, a study in Science Translational Medicine[26] claimed that an adjuvanted influenza vaccine used in Europe had caused narcolepsy, a permanent disorder of wakefulness. Subsequent research showed that the adjuvanted vaccine didn’t cause narcolepsy. This was yet another study that had received widespread media attention but was wrong.

From none other than the CDC website:

This risk was initially found in Finland, and then some other European countries also detected an association. Most recently, scientists at the United Kingdom’s (UK) Health Protection Agency (HPA) have found evidence of an association between Pandemrix and narcolepsy in children in England. The findings are consistent with studies from Finland and other countries.

Offit proves he wants to cover up vaccine risks all the more by concluding about publishing them:

In the name of transparency, we do it all the time. And we do it at our peril.

What we really do at our peril is form federal committees that promote routine vaccination to the entire country and have liars like Offit sit on them.

Lawyer Selling Trump Access Shares Vaccine Troll’s Blog with Pharma CEO

A blog by vaccine troll David Gorski was shared with Novartis’ CEO by then-Trump lawyer Michael Cohen. According to a Senate minority report, Cohen was trying to sell White House access to his then-client Novartis.

As would be expected, Gorski feigned surprise at the news.

Yet he appears to have already known who would be appointed to run FDA. The blog’s sharing was followed by a meeting between the President, Trump and pharmaceutical executives. S&P Market Intelligence says what happened next:

the Novartis CEO arranged a phone call with Cohen, where the lawyer said he was knowledgeable about the individuals the president was likely to appoint and could provide the company with information about how those people would approach the healthcare-related issues the drugmaker was focused on.

Industry-friendly appointments were subsequently made to top posts at FDA (Scott Gottlieb), HHS (Alex Azar), NIH (Francis Collins) and at CDC (Brenda Fitzgerald, then Robert Redfield). The vaccine safety commission President Trump promised remains unformed. Cohen was also trying to get Novartis to invest in an autism therapy developed by a Russian pharmaceutical oligarch.

After Michael Cohen proved no longer useful to the vaccine industry, the vaccine chief’s brother ordered the FBI to raid Cohen’s office. He is now under federal investigation and has turned against President Trump.

Carolyn Maloney, Retract Your Comment and Apologize to Autism Families

Congresswoman Maloney on Victory Night, Credit: Our Town Downtown

Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney has just won the Democratic primary against her challenger. Autism Investigated told readers to tell her she deserves to lose her seat after her campaign said she “does not believe there is a link between vaccinations and autism.” The statement came as her opponent Suraj Patel reportedly out-raised her in campaign dollars. What she should do now is retract that statement and apologize to the autism community.

In fairness to Maloney, however, Suraj Patel is a real piece of work. He called Carolyn Maloney an “anti-vaxxer” as an insult, claiming she “attacks doctors and scientists.” In other wacky news, he said he wants to abolish US Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Nothing stops the spread of vaccine-“preventable” diseases like open borders, apparently. The voters weren’t convinced, and he lost to her in a blowout.

Now it’s up to Carolyn Maloney to make things right and restate her commitment to vaccine safety. Whatever one thinks of her specific policy proposals, she knows about the vaccine problem:

Currently, the CDC has responsibility for both vaccine safety and promotion, which is an inherent conflict of interest increasingly garnering public criticism.

As a Congressional Democrat, she is in a unique position to turn her party around on vaccination. Autism Investigated wants to like her, wants to support her and wants to celebrate her re-election. Do the right thing, apologize and re-emphasize your commitment to solving the vaccine problem, Congresswoman Maloney!

Vaccine Adverse Event Under-Reporting System “Proves” Vaccine is Safe

Pediatrics – the official journal of the dumbest of the world’s dumbest profession – is at it again. They are now claiming the DTaP (Diphtheria, Tetanus, acellular Pertussis) vaccine is safe. Their source: the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), co-managed by FDA and CDC. The problem with VAERS is that it is an entirely passive reporting system. That means only a tiny fraction of events are even reported, since it’s done voluntarily.

Ironically, Pediatrics has dismissed research analyzing VAERS to show vaccines are dangerous. Yet here the journal is now using VAERS to say a vaccine is safe, oh the irony! The editor-in-chief of Pediatrics actually blogged about this study in a post titled, “A Safe Look at 16 Years of National Reports on DTaP Vaccine Adverse Events.”

Even worse, the investigators are all with FDA and CDC. Those are the federal agencies that run VAERS and should know better than anyone how the database should and should not be used. If VAERS were truly an adequate system, there would be no need for the Vaccine Safety Datalink. That is the much more complete surveillance system comprised of millions of HMO records that is both maintained and restricted by CDC. But with all the hypocrisy of the vaccine state, using VAERS to prove vaccines are safe is nowhere near a new low for them.
