The FDA commissioner who told Congress that Danish fugitive Poul Thorsen definitively debunked the vaccine-autism link is at it again. Scott Gottlieb is now citing the work of measles importation advocate Peter Hotez.

We are already at a dangerous tipping point, thanks to toxic vaccinations. Gottlieb cited propaganda of vaccine developer Peter Hotez, who has encouraged the importation of measles by opposing President Trump’s immigration policies. Hotez called vaccine skeptics and anti-vaccinationists a “hate group” and has written in favor of compulsory vaccination. He is in denial of his daughter’s vaccine injury.

Even Scott Gottlieb knows immigration can spread disease. Here is what Gottlieb wrote in 2008 (despite wrongly saying mercury is in the MMR vaccine):

…measles can still be imported from countries where its incidence is widespread. (The Brooklyn strain was probably introduced by immigrants.)

Gottlieb cites a man who wants to eliminate American borders to spread measles and scare people into poisoning their kids. Meanwhile, look who Gottlieb is seated next to: the former Maryland Secretary of Health who led attacks against vaccine scientists. Gottlieb said he “made transparency a priority at #FDA under his leadership.”

Read that again:

We’re fully committed to continuing to embrace and promote transparency at #FDA.

No, you’re not.

Travis Allen – A Loss at The Polls, A Victory Against Vaccine Mandates

The California gubernatorial primary was a disappointment, but not a loss. Assemblyman Travis Allen did not get the endorsement he deserved from the president and did not win the gubernatorial primary. Yet Assemblyman Allen won a victory for opponents of mandatory vaccination by becoming the first gubernatorial candidate in the nation’s largest state to come out forcefully against vaccine mandates. The remaining Republican candidate will need Allen’s supporters for any chance at victory in November, and the tide isn’t just turning in America.

Italy just confirmed a new government opposed to the draconian vaccine mandates signed into law last year.

In Poland, thousands have just taken to the streets to march for International Day Against Vaccinations as seen in the below viral video. To be honest, Autism Investigated had not heard of such a day but will be observing it annually from here on out.

We will not allow the state to take away our right to resist toxic vaccines produced by the dishonest people who make them. Not now, not ever.

TRAVIS ALLEN FOR GOV: “I will do everything I can to overturn [SB277].”

Days ago, Italy swore in a new government opposed to a draconian mandatory vaccination law passed by the previous leaders. Gubernatorial candidate and state representative Travis Allen is giving Californians the opportunity to do the same by forcefully opposing the law that stripped the state of its religious and philosophical exemptions from vaccination. As a result of this law, children who do not comply with routine vaccination schedules are denied attendance at both public and private school.

Allen’s vocal opposition was stated in the below interview with Vaxxed cameraman Josh Coleman, whose son was paralyzed by vaccination. During the interview, Representative Allen made the point that children receive far more vaccines than his generation received.

He also said that vaccine coverage was increasing before the law was passed anyway. Autism Investigated notes that the Disneyland measles anomaly that precipitated the law spread from borderless, migrant-overrun Europe. Those same politicians so “concerned” about infectious disease have made California  a “sanctuary state.”

Allen also emphasized that the law is unfair to families who opt out of vaccinating their other children after an older child has a vaccine reaction. That unfairness reached its zenith in 2016. Renowned pediatrician Robert Sears refused to continue vaccinating a child who suffered a vaccine reaction. So California’s medical board took disciplinary action against Sears. At the time, Autism Investigated concluded with, “The safest option is to resist vaccines entirely, and vote for Donald Trump.”

For Californians in 2018, the safest option for themselves and for their children is to vote for Travis Allen and make California great again!

BREAKING: Italy’s New Government Opposes Mandatory Vaccination Law

The editor predicted that Italy’s new mandatory vaccination law will fuel a populist backlash to the ruling class, writing in The Epoch Times nine months ago:

The voters who elected Trump and rejected Clinton knew where both candidates stood on vaccinations. Similarly, Italian voters will head to the ballots in next year’s election knowing that Italy’s populists stood up for their vaccine exemption rights while Italy’s Democrats stripped them away.

The Italian people made their voices heard by voting the populists into power and voting the ruling Partito Democratico into minority status. Autism Investigated concluded:

Yesterday’s election outcome just astronomically raised the likelihood that the Lorenzin Law will soon be discarded to the ash heap of history.

That likelihood now looks like virtual certainty with the swearing in of Italy’s new government and a new health minister opposed to the mandatory vaccination law. Age of Autism Europe editor John Stone writes:

After months of negotiations Italian have finally managed to form a government based on the Five Star Movement and the Northern League both of whom were opposed to vaccine mandates piloted by Beatrice Lorenzin and the previous center left government –  the new Health Minister, Giulia Grillo, is “In favor of vaccines, but against Lorenzin’s law“.

Lorenzin has left the government. Her law will soon follow.

Globalist Health Father Rapidly Expanded Dangerous Vaccine Mandates

Smallpox: it only infected humans, and it was only contagious when it made them sick. Isolate a sick person: it doesn’t spread, globalist lies notwithstanding.

But smallpox vaccines are great, a globalist would say. They eradicated smallpox! There’s even a man behind them to take credit! No not the creds-faking shadow vaccine “safety” chief‘s early-20th century counterpart.

His name is William Foege, CDC director under Jimmy Carter. Foege is father of “Global Health,” or why our government sacrifices American children with mercury to protect U.N. vaccine programs.

State vaccine mandates before Carter: 11. Mandates after: 50!

This is why so many more kids got hurt and killed by vaccines in the eighties. This is also why you can’t sue vaccine makers. It’s why combined vaccines like MMR are much more in vogue and why the schedule has expanded so much.

child hours after his MMR vaccine, who developed neurological damage

Vaccine-injured child, what Foege can really take credit for!

The airhead at Vox who interviewed him conveniently left all that out. He said vaccine injuries were fake. In fact, they’re real. Reporting that truth is what got a doctor disbarred. The decision itself said so (p. 43):

You knew or ought to have known that your reporting in the Lancet paper of a temporal link between the syndrome you described and the MMR vaccination, i. had major public health implications, ii. would attract intense public and media interest.

No wonder vaccines are causing so much harm. No wonder people look the other way as the government blatantly lies. Overt censorship of any reasonable concern about them is acceptable.

It shouldn’t be. It won’t be. Autism Investigated is proudly anti-vaccine.

Vaccine mandates and the harm they caused, not hostages or inflation, is what Carter will be most notorious for. He’ll have guys like Foege to thank for that for sure.

ITALY ELECTION: The Populists Decimate The Political Establishment

Read TIME’s recent piece “How Anti-Vaxxers Could Help Decide Italy’s Election” and the editor’s August 2017 article in The Epoch Times entitled “Italy’s New Mandatory Vaccine Law Will Fuel a Populist Backlash.” 

A populist-led coalition and a populist political party have collectively amassed 70% of the vote in Italy’s Sunday election. The populist Northern League (Lega Nord) now leads a coalition of right-wing parties which in turn now have the highest share of seats in the country’s parliament. The populist 5 Star Movement (Movimento 5 Stelle/M5S) now controls more seats than any other party. Last year, both Lega Nord and M5S unanimously opposed a new law mandating 12 vaccinations for Italian schoolchildren but did not have enough seats to defeat it.

Now they do.

In contrast, the once-dominant Partito Democratico that overwhelmingly passed the new law failed to even gain a fifth of the vote. Its leader Matteo Renzi has just resigned in humiliation. He previously resigned as prime minister in 2016 over a failed constitutional referendum. Now in 2018, populist leaders Matteo Salvini of Lega Nord and Luigi Di Maio of M5S are vying to run Italy.

Regardless of who the next prime minister will be, opponents of the mandatory vaccination law (nicknamed the “Lorenzin Law” after Italy’s health minister Beatrice Lorenzin) now dominate the government. The prime minister must have the confidence of a majority of parliament. Yesterday’s election outcome just astronomically raised the likelihood that the Lorenzin Law will soon be discarded to the ash heap of history.

Autism Investigated Note: Read the editor’s piece for The Epoch Times last summer on how mandatory vaccination will affect Italy’s upcoming election. Ignore the pro-vax tone of the TIME article below.

By TARA JOHN

In late 2015, Italian virologist Roberto Burioni took part in a Q&A with young mothers on a Facebook group and was alarmed to find many of them spouting conspiracy theories about vaccinations. The measles shot, they said, gives children autism.

The 55-year-old decided to take a deeper look online and realized there was an ecosystem of Italian anti-vaccination groups on the social media site. In spring 2016, Burioni sat down, fired up his laptop and began debunking anti-vaccination conspiracy theories on his public Facebook page.

“I started writing because I was fed up of social media being at the hands of people telling lies,” Burioni, who is a professor of microbiology and virology at the Vita-Salute University San Raffaele, Milan, says during a phone interview. “All the voices [online] in Italy were against vaccination. There was no debate and I did what I could to start one.”

Just over two years later that debate has gone from an online feud to a live political issue in the Italian general election due on March 4. As skepticism about vaccines has become widespread in Italy, so-called “anti-vaxxers” have become a voting bloc for the populist parties vying for votes. As a result, two of the leading populist parties — the far-right League (formerly the Northern League) and the anti-establishment Five Star Movement (5SM) — have pledged, if elected, to scrap a law passed in July that made ten vaccinations compulsory for children under the age of 16. If they do, health experts warn it could be a huge step backwards in the global fight for children’s health.

Vaccine skepticism in Italy dates back to a debunked 1998 study by Andrew Wakefield that linked the Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR) shot typically given to children after their first birthday to autism. The discredited idea took hold among an “intellectual fringe” in Italy, says Andrea Grignolio, a medicine historian at the La Sapienza University of Rome. The skeptics tend to be “rich and older parents,” he says, “who are susceptible to both alternative treatments, like homeopathy, and conspiracy theories.”

The waters surrounding the issue of vaccination were muddied further by a 2012 court ruling in the city of Rimini, northeast Italy, that a child’s autism had in fact been caused by the MMR vaccination. The Rimini ruling was overturned in 2015, but the judgement had by then done its damage. According to Grignolio, vaccine skeptics today make up 5% of the population while vaccine hesitancy— which the WHO defines as a “delay in acceptance or refusal of vaccines despite availability of vaccine services”— is estimated to affect a further 10% of Italy’s 60 million-strong population. ‘That’s millions of people,” Grignolio says.

It shouldn’t be a huge surprise, then, that measles has made a troubling comeback in Italy. Cases jumped nearly six-fold from around 870 cases in 2016 to more than 5,000 cases last year. In the last six months of 2017, Italy was ranked sixth-highest worldwide in measles cases after India, Nigeria, the Ukraine and China. The mandatory vaccine legislation, nicknamed the Lorenzin law after the country’s health minister Beatrice Lorenzin, was introduced last year to combat the troubling increase.

SB277 Opponents: Why Hold a Referendum on an Unconstitutional Law?

united-states-constitution

By Jake Crosby

If a law is unconstitutional, why hold a referendum on it? The constitution is meant to prevent the passage of laws that infringe on individual rights, even when such laws have support of 99% of the population. With 82% of Californians supporting SB277 which aims to revoke vaccine exemptions, a referendum will not strike down the law. Instead, the referendum will give rise to the perception that opponents view the law as constitutional when it is not.

Although the US Supreme Court has ruled that police powers of the state can trump individual liberties in its 1905 Jacobson v. Massachusetts ruling, it also put limitations on those powers. In its decision, the court stated that “general terms should be so limited in their application as not to lead to injustice, oppression or absurd consequence.”

Because SB277 seeks to mandate the routine immunization schedule recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for anyone seeking to attend a public or private school in California, the CDC should be legally considered to be part of the state. CDC’s conduct therefore reflects on the constitutionality of SB277, or rather its lack of constitutionality.

CDC has proven its lack of integrity on vaccine safety issues, having concealed proof of harm from mercury in vaccines. CDC’s top immunization official has lied to Congress, and the CDC has covered up evidence linking autism to the measles, mumps, rubella vaccine among other vaccine dangers according to a senior CDC scientist.

Despite CDC’s conduct and lack of integrity, SB277 fully mandates CDC’s immunization schedule and revokes all parental choice exemptions to it in California. Far from addressing the issues with CDC, Senator Richard Pan, a primary co-sponsor of SB277, sought to deny them by calling the senior CDC scientist who became a whistleblower against his own federal agency a “fraud.” So SB277 is unconstitutional, and is therefore illegal even when considering the police powers of the state as they pertain to individual rights.

Unfortunately, some lawyers have not considered the constitutionality of SB277 from every angle. Attorney Alan Phillips who specializes in vaccine exemptions stated that “courts can’t second-guess the legislature with respect to vaccine and infectious disease facts” in a letter addressed to “Concerned California Citizens.” Although Phillips was correct in saying that the right to attend school would probably not be a viable legal basis to strike down SB277, he was wrong to state that legislatures have carte blanche to invoke their police powers by revoking school vaccine exemptions. The Supreme Court’s 1905 ruling forbade exactly what SB277 will do: mandate a dangerous immunization schedule produced by a federal agency proven to lie about vaccine dangers as a punitive measure against those resisting the CDC’s vaccination policies.

A lawsuit that makes the previously described case against SB277 is how the law should be fought. Lawsuits predicated solely on parental rights, religious rights or the right to an education will likely be no more successful than a referendum for not addressing how SB277 constitutes an abuse of the state’s police powers. Such cases are perhaps the only the kinds of lawsuits SB277 opponents have approached attorneys with, hence their reluctance to take on SB277 and Attorney Phillips’ preference for a referendum.

Nonetheless, attorneys should examine SB277 with the understanding that there are limits on how a state can invoke its police powers via mandatory vaccination while also taking into consideration the behavior of federal agencies whose misconduct shows SB277 is an abuse of such powers. The case for SB277’s unconstitutionality and that of a similar law revoking the secular choice exemption in Vermont needs to be argued correctly to effectively maximize the possibility that these laws will die and never return from the dead.

As long as a referendum is in the works, however, such lawsuits may not happen. People will wrongly believe that opponents view SB277 as constitutional for organizing a popular vote on it, and an overwhelming vote in favor of SB277 is likely. Unlike judges, the majority of constituents will not have the chance to hear cases against SB277 – only support for SB277 from a media trained to lie by the CDC.

Judges, however, will have to hear cases against SB277 – if a lawsuit against SB277’s constitutionality is filed. The referendum could delay that and will end in failure. Properly argued lawsuits against SB277 and similar legislation are necessary to strike them down.

“Trace Amounts” Documentary Leaves No Trace of Doubt

trace-amounts

By Jake Crosby

What if the most effective argument against vaccination mandates is not even a direct argument against mandates themselves? What if the most effective argument is simply shining a light on the corruption within federal agencies responsible for immunization policies states mandate and on the greater greed – not the greater good – behind the “trace amounts” of one particularly toxic vaccine ingredient?

That is certainly what energetic filmmaker Eric Gladen seems to be proving with nationwide screenings of his documentary “Trace Amounts” about the harm being done to children worldwide by the mercury-based vaccine preservative thimerosal. What began as his own personal struggles with mercury poisoning that he attributed to a thimerosal-laced tetanus vaccine mushroomed into a decade-long journey to uncover the troubled history behind this known neurotoxin and its connection to the autism epidemic affecting America’s children.

“Trace Amounts” has already been credited with the death of legislation proposing elimination of vaccine exemptions – notably in Oregon. The film’s effectiveness should be no mystery to anyone who actually has watched the documentary. It leaves no room for reasonable doubt about thimerosal’s causation of neurological disorders or efforts by the CDC to conceal that harm from the public. Since then, the “Trace Amounts” tour has made its way here to Texas where Texans’ rights to forgo vaccination are currently under legislative threat.

As the state legislature of California also considers a senate bill to eliminate vaccine exemptions, “Trace Amounts” is now making its way to the state capital of Sacramento. The bill’s supporters will have to answer to the fact that they are seeking to force people to subject their children to a vaccine schedule based on recommendations by a federal agency that covers up vaccine injuries. Just viewing the documentary’s two-minute trailer should be enough to worry rights-denying politicians like Richard Pan – the bill’s architect. He and others like him will have far more explaining to do to whoever watches the full documentary.
