Pro-Vax Globalists Call Forced Child-Poisoning a “Right”

Arthur Caplan and Peter Hotez, Seattle Times

The vaccine state and its supportive globalists are coming for your kids, to poison them into oblivion and then deny vaccines hurt them for eternity. The vaccine statists are coming for everyone next.

Here you have vaccine developer Peter Hotez and pharma-funded “ethicist” Arthur Caplan saying children have a “right” (i.e. should be forced) to get vaccinated. They invoke infectious disease, but really it’s all about protecting their vaccine program that they’ve staked their professional reputations on.

Proving it has nothing to do with infectious disease, they use the measles outbreak among Somalis in Minnesota to justify compulsory vaccination. Never mind that the president tried to put a ban on travel from Somalia to our country before the outbreak, and both “experts” opposed it. Caplan even explicitly opposed it to prevent the spread of diseases like measles!

The health care and scientific community had better be ready to spread the facts when the next infectious disease appears and President Trump invokes microbes to close the borders. – Art Caplan

Scientific communities across the world need collaborators in these [banned] countries who can combat epidemics before they arrive in the US. Peter Hotez

They want measles to be spread, which is why they want migrants to spread it to the US. They want to justify ending vaccine exemptions and skepticism, as Hotez said himself:

“The only thing that’s going to stop this runaway train right now is a large measles outbreak.” 

The bottom line is that Hotez and Caplan are just trying to cover up that vaccines cause autism, especially in Hotez’s daughter.

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.

 

VACCINE CHIEF’S BROTHER APPROVED THE RAID ON TRUMP LAWYER

Rod Rosenstein is the Deputy Attorney General who appointed Special Counsel Robert Mueller and approved the infamous FBI raid on President Trump’s attorney Michael Cohen. Rosenstein is also the brother of one of the federal doctors who President Trump has by-extension accused of lying about “massive vaccinations.”

According to a bio of Rosenstein’s shortly after he was appointed Deputy Attorney General:

His sister, Dr. Nancy Messonnier, is the director of the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases [NCIRD] at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Messonnier has a long career at the CDC going all the way back to 1995. For the past decade, she has consistently held leadership positions as a vaccine official. She has been director of NCIRD since March 2016 after serving as deputy director from October 2014. Before that, she was chief of the Meningitis and Vaccine Preventable Diseases Branch in NCIRD’s Division of Bacterial Diseases.

Messonnier was already NCIRD director at CDC when agency employees were “crying in the hallways” over Trump’s victory. And Trump’s statements over the years have given them plenty of reasons to cry.

Just look at the contrast between Trump’s tweets and that of Rosenstein’s sister that same year.

The papers cited in the report included none other than fugitive Poul Thorsen’s fraud. While Messonnier would rise through the ranks of the CDC to eventually become its NCIRD director, Trump would continue to broadcast his vaccine skepticism.

Months before declaring his candidacy, Trump reiterated his positions about vaccines on The Hugh Hewitt ShowMonths after his campaign announcement, Trump expressed support for those same positions in the second GOP debate.

Then during the primary contests, he would again reiterate those positions to journalist Sharyl Attkisson while calling other candidates “bought off with campaign contributions.” He would later meet with Dr. Andrew Wakefield as GOP nominee and Robert F. Kennedy Jr. after becoming President-Elect. Surely anybody sympathetic to CDC’s vaccine officials would want to put a stop to such progress. Who better than one of their brothers?

How ironic that Rosenstein has the power he has because of the recusal of the comparably far-less conflicted Attorney General Jeff Sessions. He recused himself from the Russia investigation for just meeting with the Russian ambassador on two occasions. The first time was a meeting with a group of foreign ambassadors and the second culminated in an argument between Sessions and the ambassador over Ukraine. If that counts as a conflict of interest, surely Rosenstein’s sister being a top vaccine official during all of Trump’s vaccine remarks counts big time.

President Trump must fire Rod Rosenstein.

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!

Autism Speaks Promotes Darkness for Vaccination-Autism Science

The official position of the world’s biggest money-grubbing autism charity Autism Speaks is that vaccines provide “no increased risk” for autism. What they really support is overt censorship of autism-vaccine science.

The end of Autism Speaks’ position statement provides the first clue.

The American Academy of Pediatrics has compiled a comprehensive list of this research. You can view and download the list here.

What does the academy include in this list of “research?”

British journalist Brian Deer investigates Dr. Andrew Wakefield (the man who initially claimed a link between autism and the MMR vaccine), his practices during the study that was published on this alleged connection, and uncovers truths that lead to the revocation of Dr. Wakefield’s medical license and to the retraction of the article he published on the subject.​

At the center of the “practices” were his so-called conflicts of interest. The UK General Medical Council that took his license stated:

Having regard to its findings at paragraph 31.c., the Panel is satisfied that your conduct in failing to disclose your involvement in the MMR litigation, your receipt of funding for part of Project 172-96 from the Legal Aid Board and your involvement in the Patent, constituted disclosable interests. Your failure to disclose these to the Editor of The Lancet was contrary to your duties as a senior author of the Lancet paper.

He was “contrary” to his “duties,” you say? Sounds harsh. Let’s see how that’s defined in “paragraph 31.c.”

iii. had a duty to disclose to the Editor of the Lancet any disclosable interest including matters which could legitimately give rise to a perception that you had a conflict of interest; Found proved

Let that sink in, Dr. Wakefield had a duty to disclose:

any disclosable interest including matters which could legitimately give rise to a perception that you had a conflict of interest

Is abiding by that duty even possible? Not even the General Medical Council thinks so. That’s why they tell doctors in their own guidance to “use your professional judgement to identify when conflicts of interest arise.” They clearly held Dr. Wakefield to a different standard, as Autism Investigated already reported. But why?

c. In the circumstances set out at paragraph 31.b. above, 

What are those “circumstances?” Why, the fact that he published on children being poisoned into autism by vaccination.

b. 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, Admitted and found proved i. had major public health implications, Admitted and found proved ii. would attract intense public and media interest, Admitted and found proved

BINGO! They took away his license and retracted his paper because of what he published. They make no secret of it.

In the United Kingdom, you can attack Jews and still keep your medical license. Don’t even think about criticizing a vaccine though.

It is totally shameful the American Academy of Pediatrics would openly celebrate such overt censorship while poisoning more children. It is also shameful that Autism Speaks does the same while asking for money to “shine a light on autism.” They don’t want to shine a light on anything.

Autism Speaks wants to keep the causation of autism in the dark. President Trump should dump Autism Speaks.

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.

New CDC Director Misstates Influenza Vaccination Effectiveness

Robert Redfield INSTITUTE OF HUMAN VIROLOGY AT THE UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND SCHOOL OF MEDICINE

According to The Washington Post, the new CDC director reportedly told his new employees, “We have got to get the American public to understand that vaccination is important and needs to be fully utilized.” This was reportedly after he cited 130 child deaths from flu season, implying they all could have been saved by vaccination.

The reality is that a quarter of them were vaccinated. The majority of American children and adults were not vaccinated for the flu anyway. And those 130 children are almost certainly not representative of the overall population of children. But that doesn’t stop Redfield from misrepresenting flu vaccines like he did an experimental AIDS treatment a quarter-century ago. The difference there was that he at least provided data on most of the subjects who got the treatment. In the case of flu vaccines, he just implied 130 deaths could have all been prevented with vaccination without giving evidence that even one of those deaths could have been stopped.

Both the FDA and CDC chiefs have misstated the effectiveness or safety of vaccination. Yet both would not have been in their positions were it not for the president, who had claimed to have never gotten the flu or the flu shot.

RFK Quick To Attack Trump on Vaccines, But Soft on Democrats

Instagram pic of Trump pinata at family gathering from account of Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s daughter, Kathleen “Kick” Kennedy

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. appears to have publicly given up hope on the Trump Administration’s willingness to tackle vaccines, according to The Guardian. The move comes weeks after his nephew delivered the Democrat Party’s response to the State of the Union address, marking a resurgent role of the Kennedy family in politics. It also represents a stark contrast to the appeasing approach RFK took with President Obama and many other prominent Democrat apologists of vaccination.

When news broke that Congressman Joe Kennedy III would deliver the Democrat response to the State of the Union Address, Robert Kennedy was quick to hype the story on Twitter.

Weeks after Joe Kennedy’s statement, Robert Kennedy made these remarks to The Guardian about the current president’s alleged betrayal of vaccine safety:

“We were told President Trump wanted to meet directly with us. Not only did nothing happen, they’ve cut off all communication with people who care about this issue. The administration has decided to go in another direction.”

“I’ve seen a tremendous deflation among a community of parents and children’s health advocates across the country who believed the promises that President Trump made to the campaign, who put tremendous faith in him and now are feeling enormous betrayal and disappointment.”

According to The Guardian, Robert Kennedy has not had contact with the White House for “at least six months.” Around that same time, he disclosed details of his recent meetings with federal officials to STAT NewsAutism Investigated has reached out to Kennedy’s organization World Mercury Project to inquire about the circumstances that led to these disclosures and is waiting to hear back. One cannot help but wonder his motivations for speaking so freely to the mainstream press while trying to sway a president who has been so critical of unwarranted leaks and fake news by that same press.

Throughout the election, Kennedy was a staunch supporter of Hillary Clinton. That was despite her adamant defense of vaccination, even attacking Donald Trump over his statements about the vaccine problem.

Years ago, a doctor close to the Clintons convinced Kennedy to release a chopped version of his landmark book on mercury in vaccines. That failed attempt to sway Senate Democrats, the Obama Administration and an anticipated Clinton Administration faced massive protest from the autism community. Autism Investigated responded by posting the complete manuscript online, taking it down only after Kennedy published the full version one year later.

But despite spending years trying to appease Obama officials, Kennedy is quick to alienate the first president to have openly supported the fact that vaccines cause autism. Kennedy’s decision comes as the permanent position of CDC chief again remains vacant while that same president has the sole authority to fill it with a decent appointment. What Kennedy did could not have been done at a worse time.

WAPO: Med Board Ordered to Pay Millions for Conspiracy Against Dr. Geier

Autism Investigated Note: The Maryland Board of Physicians has been ordered to pay $2.5 million for its Watergate-like conspiracy against Dr. Mark Geier. Read The Washington Post story below for details. (pro-vax tone aside)

Regulators who targeted anti-vaccine doctor may pay millions for humiliating him

 February 3 at 5:19 PM 

Mark Geier built a medical practice in Rockville and a national reputation for propagating the discredited theory that vaccines cause autism. The Maryland Board of Physicians suspended his license seven years ago because he was treating autistic children with a drug considered dangerous for young people and not known to alleviate symptoms of the disorder.

But the regulators who stripped Geier’s credentials are now in the hot seat, ordered to each personally pay tens of thousands of dollars in damages by a judge who says the board abused its power in an attempt to humiliate the doctor and his family. The board posted a cease-and-desist order on its website in 2012 alleging that Geier had improperly prescribed medication for himself, his wife and his son while his license was suspended. In an unusual move, the order named the drugs in question. Online critics of Geier took notice, mocking the doctor and his family in blogs and comments for their use of the medications.

The Geiers say the state publicized those details for vengeance, to punish a doctor with unconventional ideas. State officials say it was an honest mistake.

But Montgomery County Circuit Court Judge Ronald B. Rubin sided with the Geiers, awarding them $2.5 million in damages. He called the order a significant breach of medical privacy and accused the board and its staff of failing to preserve emails related to the case and pleading ignorance about the order on the witness stand.

“If their testimony were to be believed, which the court does not, it is the worst case of collective amnesia in the history of Maryland government and on par with the collective memory failure on display at the Watergate hearings,” Rubin wrote in a December opinion.

He ordered 14 board appointees, the board’s lead attorney and the lead investigator on the Geier case to pay half of the damages out of their own pockets, between $10,000 and $200,000 apiece, depending on their net worth.

A spokeswoman for the state health department, which oversees the board, says the agency tries to balance privacy with a responsibility to inform the public of risks.

The defendants, who are appealing the decision, mostly declined to comment or did not respond to interview requests. Three of them told The Washington Post that the judge’s version of the facts was wrong, and accused him of coming down too hard on volunteers who were donating their time.

“I felt Judge Rubin had a bone to pick with the Board of Physicians. Some of the stuff he came up with is outlandish,” said Jonathan Lerner, who left the board last year. “He set the tone for the future that no one else would want to serve on a board.”

Raquel Coombs, a spokeswoman for the Maryland Attorney General’s Officewhich represents the board, said of the ruling: “We believe there are serious errors in both the facts and the law and will vigorously pursue those on appeal.”

Controversial views

Dr. Mark Geier in 2011 (Jed Kirschbaum/Baltimore Sun)

Mark Geier developed a national following and drew widespread criticism — for espousing his belief that thimerosal, a mercury-based preservative formerly used in childhood vaccines, contributes to autism.

Multiple medical groups and judges dismissed his research as seriously flawedand the vaccine-autism link has been repeatedly debunked. But a growing movement that sees vaccine requirements as an intrusion on parental rights has taken hold in California, Texas and other states, emboldened by President Trump’s embrace during the 2016 campaign of the discredited vaccines-and-autism link.

Public health experts consider “anti-vaxxers” a grave threat to one of the most significant medical developments in human history. Some Facebook users share Geier’s videos to urge against flu shots, even amid the worst flu outbreak in nearly a decade.

But it was Geier’s treatment of autistic children that caught the attention of the Board of Physicians in 2006.

Geier believed mercury from vaccines caused early puberty, aggression and symptoms of autism, and that suppressing testosterone with the drug Lupron — which is approved to treat prostate cancer, endometriosis and fibroids, but also is also used to chemically castrate sex offenders — would reverse those effects.

No credible medical research showed this treatment to be effective for autism, the Board of Physicians noted. The board suspended Geier’s medical license in 2011 and revoked it the next year, citing his methods and saying he had misrepresented his credentials. Several other states also revoked Geier’s medical license, and regulators targeted his son for practicing medicine without a license.

Maryland officials continued to track Mark Geier’s activities, according to the lawsuit the Geiers filed in 2012.

Many of the case records remain under seal. But Rubin’s order shows that board staff were tracking blogs and news articles chronicling Geier’s downfall, mocking him and his son in emails and reveling in their humiliation.

When they got a tip that Mark Geier may have still been prescribing medication, they vowed to look into it. Before holding an evidence hearing, board attorney Victoria Pepper drafted the cease-and-desist order.

Rubin described the decision to name the drugs in the order as an extraordinary breach of privacy for an agency that should know better than anyone else the importance of confidentiality in the medical profession. He pointed to emails sent later on during the probe as evidence of the board’s motivation to embarrass the Geiers.

Pepper referred derisively to the Geiers as “Daddy G” and “Baby G” in emails to Josh Shafer, the board investigator leading the probe of the Geiers.

“Maybe we can help make it a bad month” for the Geiers, Shafer wrote back, using a derogatory reference to the drugs they were using.

Timeline

April 27, 2011: Maryland Board of Physicians suspends Mark Geier’s license

Jan. 25, 2012: Board posts order accusing Geier of prescribing drugs to himself and his son while his license was suspended, naming the drugs in question.

Feb. 5, 2012: Attorney for Geiers sends board letter objecting to publication of private medical information

Feb. 22, 2012: Board removes private information from Geier order, but original still accessible online.

Dec. 29, 2012: Geiers file lawsuit against Maryland Board of Physicians

July 11, 2013: Board removes original order from website

Dec. 7, 2017: Montgomery County judge awards $2.5 million to the Geiers

At trial, Pepper said she knew the Geiers’ private medical information would be online as a result of the order, but didn’t think it would be embarrassing. She said she named the drugs to clarify that they weren’t dangerous controlled substances and named the recipients to clarify that Geier wasn’t prescribing the medication or juveniles. The judge called those reasons “fabrications,” adding that “Pepper viewed Dr. Geier and his practice to be so abhorrent that she was willing to do ‘whatever it took’ to tarnish his reputation.”

Pepper, who still works for the board, did not return repeated emails seeking comment.

All but one member of the Board of Physicians who voted to approve the cease-and-desist order on Jan. 25, 2012 later told the judge they didn’t actually read it.

“It is sort of like looking out an airplane window watching the pilot walking around kicking the rubber and pulling on the metal. I don’t have to go behind him and pull it. I trust the pilot to do his job,” testified Paul Elder, an anesthesiologist from Anne Arundel County who was appointed by former governor Robert L. Ehrlich (R) in 2003 and chaired the board at the time of the Geier investigation. “I trust the Board staff to do their job and construct a document that was ready for signature.”

Elder, who is no longer on the board, did not return repeated messages left at his medical practice.

A legal battle

The Geiers were horrified when they saw their private business was now available for the world to read. Their then-lawyer Jay Schwartz sent the board a letter calling the disclosure of private medical information illegal, and confronted Elder after an unrelated hearing in Annapolis to underscore his point.

The board uploaded a new version of the orderwith the personal information removed. But the original could still be found by a simple Google search, and was uploaded online by a local television station covering the board’s probe of Geier.

The order stayed online even after an administrative law judge decided the allegations it was based on were without merit — Mark Geier didn’t prescribe the drugs, his son David did and the family threatened to sue.

It was not taken down until July 11, 2013, a day after Rubin held a hearing in the lawsuit.

Mark Geier’s wife Anne, who died in October 2014, said during a deposition a few months earlier that she was “humiliated” by the contents of the order.

“How would you feel if somebody put your medical records up and then they laughed at you and made fun of you?” she said. They humiliate you. The whole thing has just ruined my life.”

Mark and David Geier, who moved to Florida in 2012, declined to comment.

Several board members acknowledged in court that posting private medical information was inappropriate, but said they didn’t take any steps to make sure the order was taken down from the website. In what Rubin dubbed “colossal amnesia,” some board members also said they barely knew Mark Geier — who had been the subject of one of their most high-profile cases.

“The Board of Physicians is not an ornamental office. It is a serious public trust. It was breached horribly in this case,” Rubin wrote in his opinion. “They knew, the court finds, that the problem had not been fixed. The court finds they simply did not care.”

Lerner, one of the former board members, said the reason they didn’t follow up was far simpler.

“We trusted the staff member and IT staff members when they said it was taken down,” he said. “I don’t think I’m responsible to go do a Google search.”

Rubin also criticized the board for failing to turn over key emails about the case, many of which were apparently lost when the agency changed email servers in 2012 or overlooked because officials didn’t properly search their private accounts.

“The negative and unprofessional tone and tenor of the few preserved e-mails is manifest,” Rubin wrote. “It is not believable that other e-mails, had they been preserved, would fare better.”

Only one of the 14 board members ordered to pay the Geiers still serves on the board: Beryl J. Rosenstein, who did not return a message left at his medical practice.

Jim Love, an attorney for the Geiers, suggested his clients were targeted for a simple reason.

“Everyone hates the Geiers because they say bad things about vaccines,” Love said. “I don’t know why it’s so personal.”

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.
