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.

Brain-Killing Vaccine Maker Plotkin Tries To Work Trump Through Gates

Plotkin

Stanley Plotkin, a.k.a. “Vaccine Soros”

Radical imam of vaccination Stanley Plotkin is the brain-killing MMR vaccine inventor and vaccine indoctrination book author trying to indoctrinate President Trump through Bill Gates. The living MMR doctor is also trying to stage a revolt by the vaccine state against the elected president, telling it to resist any independent vaccine safety commission.

Now we know who is really in charge of the vaccine program. He has never held public office as an elected official or as a civil servant. His CV on his website makes clear who he serves:

In 1991, Dr. Plotkin left the University to join the vaccine manufacturer, Pasteur-Mérieux-Connaught, where for seven years he was Medical and Scientific Director, based at Marnes-la-Coquette, outside Paris. The same company is now named Sanofi Pasteur. He is now consultant to vaccine manufacturers, biotechnology companies and non-profit research organizations as principal of Vaxconsult, LLC.

Plotkin’s rubella vaccine combined with measles primarily in MMR has wreaked so much havoc on a generation. Vaccine-strain measles has been found in the guts, the blood and the cerebrospinal fluid of children with autism and bowel disease. His Danish friends tried to do “research” disproving the connection, but only proved it more.

An English coauthor of all those virus-detecting papers had his medical license taken away by Plotkin’s British vaccine thugs. Even worse, the lead author of the the cerebrospinal fluid study has since been found dead and floating in a river. A CDC scientist met the same fate in February. His body was discovered just last month.

Now video footage is surfacing of Bill Gates laughingly talking about his telling President Trump that vaccines are safe and to dismiss Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

Just remember what Gates and Plotkin did.

Rick Perry – Shadow Secretary of Health and Human Services

Secretary of Energy Rick Perry salutes with officers of the Public Health Service Commissioned Corps at the swearing-in of Rear Admiral Brett Giroir, Dept of HHS

While the president’s hands are tied by the CDC vaccine chief’s brother, who is behind HHS appointments? A big clue came in the form of Brett Giroir’s appointment to Assistant Secretary for Health. As CEO of the Texas A&M Health Science Center, Giroir was appointed Director of the Texas Task Force on Infectious Disease Preparedness and Response by then-Governor Perry. Guess who served on Giroir’s commission?

There he is!

Peter Hotez.

Hotez is the vaccine developer who has called Texans for Vaccine Choice “a hate group.” He is also coming out with a book denying his daughter’s vaccine injury. At the pediatricians’ annual legislative conference, he was praised by Giroir who said  “there are no [vaccine] safety issues, especially not autism.”

Governor Rick Perry has given that same opinion all the way back in 2011:

You heard the same arguments about giving our children protections from some of the childhood diseases, and they were.. autism was part of that. Now we’ve subsequently found out that was generated and not true.

That was all the way back when he was defending his decision to mandate the HPV vaccine Gardasil for Texas schoolgirls. That decision may very well explain the positions of other top officials at HHS. The Deputy FDA Commissioner during Gardasil’s FDA approval and the Deputy HHS Secretary who announced it are now the FDA Commissioner and the HHS Secretary.

ASSISTANT SECRETARY FOR HEALTH ON VAX: “There are no safety issues.”

At the American Academy of Pediatrics’ (AAP) legislative conference, Assistant Secretary for Health and National Vaccine Program Director Brett Giroir said “there are no safety issues” with vaccines. He also told the academy of doctors who openly support the censorship of vaccine risks, “You have an ally in myself and everyone in the administration [on vaccines].”

Thanks to Dr. Sean Gallagher, @TheKidKidDoc, for informing Autism Investigated of this.

(To be fair, the president has said he supports vaccines while raising awareness about their dangers.)

Seems Giroir has a cozy relationship with the pharmaceutical industry, going back to when he headed the Texas A&M Health Science Center.

Including when it comes to vaccines.

He was run out of his post after 18 months, for his ties to industry.

Guess who Giroir also praised? None other than Peter “[you] are a hate group” Hotez:

The Department of Heath and Human Services runs the National Vaccine Program. The department denies any safety problems with vaccines. The department, therefore, cannot be trusted when it comes to vaccines. That’s why we need an independent vaccine safety commission!

And what exactly did Rear Admiral Giroir mean by the AAP having an ally in the entire administration? Even cabinet members who have nothing to do with vaccines? The transportation secretary? The labor secretary? Or…

What the now-Secretary of Energy has to do with vaccines…

Stay tuned.

CNN Attacks Trump’s Vaccine Truths To Bolster Fired FBI Chief

Jake Tapper and Ronna McDaniel, CNN

Autism Investigated Note: Check out LyinComey.com for an inside look at James Comey and the swamp our president is up against. Contact the White House and demand President Trump form an independent vaccine safety commission to stop the poisoning by the vaccine state.

Fake News Network’s description:

With all the bombshell reporting about members of the Republican National Committee, CNN’s Jake Tapper asks Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel about launching a full-scale attack on former FBI Director James Comey and integrity.

Jake Tapper has mentioned Trump acknowledging vaccines causing autism as one of the “false claims” the president has told to attack his credibility and defend fired FBI chief James Comey. This is the same Comey who withheld from Trump that the fake dossier accusing him of paying prostitutes to douse him in urine was funded by the Democratic National Committee. Props to RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel for doing such a great job responding to a professional liar like Jake Tapper.

Just recently CNN lied that a survey of autism families showed that autists were less likely to be fully vaccinated. Their chief medical correspondent routinely says vaccines don’t cause autism. Ten years ago he interviewed the father of a child whose autism our government admitted was caused by vaccines.

Autism Investigated will now take this opportunity to demand President Trump reaffirm his commitment to stopping the havoc that vaccination continues to wreak on children. Autism Investigated endorsed you, voted for you, defended you from criticism on our own side that you weren’t doing enough. Now you must act.

Do not listen to unthinking doctors or money-grubbing Autism Speaks. Do not listen to your ignorant and untrustworthy public health bureaucrats. Do not listen to a drop-out who told you he did his homework but never did. Do not listen to that drop-out’s unelected, unappointed pharma mentor who feels entitled to tell those who serve under you to revolt against your authority.

Listen to the parents. Listen to the people who are suffering. Heck even listen to Dr. Ben Carson who said too many vaccines are being given after admitting, “it hasn’t been adequately revealed to the public what is going on.”

The vaccine state is the deep state. It needs to be brought to its knees.

America needs an independent vaccine safety commission. Honor your pledge, Mr. President, to drain the swamp and Make America Great Again!

Gates’ Vaccine Mentor: “No Evidence That [My Vaccine] Causes Any Lasting Problem”

Stanley Plotkin

Wondering who influences Bill Gates to believe that vaccines are such a great investment? Look no further than Stanley Plotkin, who literally put the “R” in “MMR” (measles-mumps-rubella vaccine). He is truly the living MMR doctor. He of course said of the MMR vaccine on national television, “there is no evidence that causes any lasting problem.” He said that to the parent of a child permanently injured by his vaccine.

This is the guy influencing Bill Gates, who is trying to influence President Trump. Plotkin also feels entitled to tell the HHS National Vaccine Advisory Committee to revolt against the head of state and his administration despite not holding any federal appointment of his own.

So if he’s not a civil servant, who does he serve? His CV gives the answer:

He is now consultant to vaccine manufacturers, biotechnology companies and non-profit research organizations as principal of Vaxconsult, LLC.

Why should we be surprised that a consultant to vaccine companies feels entitled to tell NVAC what to do when NVAC’s functions are those of a vaccine manufacturer?

Studies and recommends ways to encourage the availability of an adequate supply of safe and effective vaccination products in the States.

Recommends research priorities and other measures the Director of the National Vaccine Program should take to enhance the safety and efficacy of vaccines.

Wanna solve the nation’s vaccine problem, President Trump? End the National Vaccine Program.

DEPT OF HHS: Robert Redfield Sworn In As CDC Director On Monday

HHS Secretary Azar to Name Robert R. Redfield, M.D., Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

On Wednesday, the Department of Health and Human Services announced that Secretary Alex Azar will name Robert R. Redfield, M.D., as the 18th Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Administrator of the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry.

Upon the announcement, Secretary Azar issued the following statement:

“Dr. Redfield has dedicated his entire life to promoting public health and providing compassionate care to his patients, and we are proud to welcome him as director of the world’s premier epidemiological agency. Dr. Redfield’s scientific and clinical background is peerless: As just one example, during his two-decade tenure at Walter Reed Army Institute of Research, he made pioneering contributions to advance our understanding of HIV/AIDS. His more recent work running a treatment network in Baltimore for HIV and Hepatitis C patients also prepares him to hit the ground running on one of HHS and CDC’s top priorities, combating the opioid epidemic.”

“Furthermore, all of us at HHS are grateful to Dr. Anne Schuchat for her service as Acting Director at CDC, especially during this year’s severe flu season. We look forward to CDC continuing its important work on the opioid epidemic and America’s many other pressing public health challenges.”

Biographical Background

Dr. Robert R. Redfield has been a public health leader actively engaged in clinical research and clinical care of chronic human viral infections and infectious diseases, especially HIV, for more than 30 years.

He served as the founding director of the Department of Retroviral Research within the U.S. Military’s HIV Research Program, and retired after 20 years of service in the U.S. Army Medical Corps. Following his military service, he co-founded the University of Maryland’s Institute of Human Virology with Dr. William Blattner and Dr. Robert C. Gallo and served as the Chief of Infectious Diseases and Vice Chair of Medicine at the University of Maryland School of Medicine.

Dr. Redfield made several important early contributions to the scientific understanding of HIV, including the demonstration of the importance of heterosexual transmission, the development of the Walter Reed staging system for HIV infection, and the demonstration of active HIV replication in all stages of HIV infection.

In addition to his research work, Dr. Redfield oversaw an extensive clinical program providing HIV care and treatment to more than 5,000 patients in the Baltimore/Washington, D.C. community.

Dr. Redfield served as a member of the President’s Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS from 2005 to 2009, and was appointed as Chair of the International Subcommittee from 2006 to 2009.

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.

Lilly Exec’s HHS Nomination Leaves Autism Problem to POTUS

Before the election, Donald Trump said of the problem that is the autism epidemic: “I’ll fix it.” He will fix it, not a surrogate.

That is all the more important to remember now that President Trump has just nominated former Lilly president Alex Azar to run HHS. Now more than ever, Trump must be held accountable for his promise.

From FiercePharma:

Ex-Eli Lilly executive Azar wins Trump’s nomination for top HHS post

by Eric Sagonowsky

President Donald Trump has picked a pharma insider to oversee the HHS. Just days after news that Trump was set to select ex-Eli Lilly executive Alex Azar for the U.S. government’s top healthcare post, he tweeted the nomination Monday morning.

Trump picked Azar for the HHS chief position above other candidates such as Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services director Seema Verma and FDA commissioner Scott Gottlieb, according to press reports on the selection process. Azar, who has served as an HHS deputy secretary during the George W. Bush administration and as Eli Lilly’s U.S. president, will be tasked with advancing the president’s repeal and replace push for the Affordable Care Act and ostensibly with tackling high pharmaceutical prices, an issue Trump campaigned on and has touched on during his time in the White House. But so far, critics contend the Trump Administration’s actions and proposals have only favored the industry.

Trump famously said pharma is “getting away with murder,” and previously crossed party lines to endorse Medicare price negotiations. Still, drug pricing talk hasn’t gotten serious in Congress and four Congressmen wrote to the president last month to say his “inaction” on their Medicare negotiation proposal has left them with no option other than to press ahead alone.

Cowen analyst Eric Assaraf, for his part, wrote in a note seen by Business Insider that even though “Trump specifically called out lowering drug prices in his announcement of Azar, we don’t believe his appointment will mark a change in course in that realm.” After leaving Lilly as part of an executive shakeup earlier this year, Azar formed a consultancy as he explored “new leadership opportunities,” according to an online speaker profile.

Reacting to Azar’s selection, Senate Finance Committee ranking member Sen. Ron Wyden said the president “at every turn … has broken his promises to American families to lower health care costs, expand access and bring down the high price of prescription drugs.” Sen. Wyden said he’ll ask Azar to take “take decisive, meaningful action to curtail the runaway train of prescription drug costs.”

It isn’t the first time President Trump has selected an industry insider for a top government job. The president earlier this year tapped Scott Gottlieb—who was pharma’s top pick by a wide margin—for the crucial FDA commissioner post. During his time at the agency, Gottlieb has won praise for his moves to increase competition and provide relief on pricing, as well as to speed the FDA’s approval process.

Gottlieb’s name was one floated for the HHS chief position after former secretary Tom Price resigned in September, but the FDA commissioner said in a Reuters interview he felt he is “most effective” at the drug agency.

Azar’s nomination is sure to encounter more pushback. On earlier reports that the ex-Lilly executive was under consideration, Public Citizen founder Robert Weissman said if Azar wins the nod, “then Big Pharma’s coup d’etat in the healthcare sphere will be virtually complete.”

Azar has argued against drug price controls in the past, Weissman said at the time, making it “highly unlikely” he would “advance real reform” on the issue.

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.
