Herd Immunity is a Myth, Just Ask Crooked Hillary

The science is clear: The earth is round, the sky is blue, and . Let’s protect all our kids.  – Crooked Hillary Clinton, Twitter, February 2, 2015

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends all adults over 65 receive a pneumococcal vaccine to prevent pneumonia. Yet shortly after collapsing during an early exit from a 9/11 memorial gathering over what her campaign blamed on the illness, 68-year old Crooked Hillary Clinton was photographed hugging a young girl. Despite her proclaiming that “#vaccineswork”, the pneumonia vaccine obviously did not work for her in that instance assuming she even followed the CDC’s advice as she wanted everybody else to do. And after mocking and belittling skepticism of vaccines for which the federal government routinely lies about their safety, Crooked Hillary and her security detail did not care to protect a small child from her “pneumonia”. Assuming her campaign is even telling the truth about her diagnosis, she obviously does not practice the “herd immunity” myth used to justify vaccine policy on the basis of limiting the spread of an infectious disease. Yet the truth is the polar opposite of what she says on many issues, and her health is likely no exception.

Evidence of her ill health has been mounting throughout the course of her campaign. Bizarre facial expressions, spontaneous body spasms, coughing fits, bathroom breaks, an ambulance following her motorcade, a strange lesion on her tongue, long naps, and short speeches have all been noticed by journalists though played down in mainstream media. An article that linked to a viral video about her poor health was ripped down from Huffington Post and the journalist banned from contributing in much the same way as what happened with vaccine stories posted and then taken down over there. A well-known television doctor lost his show on CNN’s sister channel for expressing skepticism about both her health and her healthcare. And of course, vaccine shill David Gorski has hopped on the bandwagon of declaring Crooked Hillary’s health as off-limits as vaccine safety while targeting other bloggers and doctors in the process.

Welcome to the new media climate, where you can have your documentary pulled from a major film festival out of pressure from people who largely had not even seen it. You can also be permanently banned from a popular social media platform for writing a negative review of a movie you actually took the time to go and see. Nothing is surprising anymore. If there is policing of our thoughts on certain films, you can bet there would be policing of our thoughts on presidential candidates.

Indeed the below film of Crooked Hillary’s epic collapse was the target of failed suppression-attempts, but is nonetheless online for all to see. So watch the below video of her “pneumonia” collapse with amusement at all the poetic justice it has to offer, and then share it with everyone you know.

Trump Backs Vaccine Safety, Calls Other Candidates “Bought”

A recent interview further highlights why Autism Investigated endorses Donald Trump for President. On April 3rd, investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson sat down with the Republican presidential front-runner. In that interview, he said,”there could be something to the theory that these massive doses that are given to children have an impact on autism” and that “we have to be very, very careful with vaccines.” He also said the other candidates are “controlled by special interests” and “bought off with campaign contributions.” As of March 21st, pharmaceutical manufacturers have given $215,477 to Hillary Clinton, $64,175 to Bernie Sanders, $63,018 to Ted Cruz, $7,625 to John Kasich despite being dead last and a measly $531 to Donald Trump.

Trump on Vaccines and Viewer Questions

Trump fielded a number of viewer questions during “Full Measure’s” Sunday sit-down. He was asked about his views on vaccinations, advice he gave to his children, advice he ignored from his children, mis-characterizations from the media and, simply, why he would make the best choice for president.

What’s your position on freedom of choice regarding various vaccines that could be dangerous for some children and why is the mere discussion of making vaccines safe censored?

“It’s the most unbelievable discussion I’ve ever been involved in. If you say anything about vaccines that is slightly like holding back the hate mail, the level of vitriol, it’s incredible when you see it. First of all, I’m a big believer in vaccines. But there could be something to the theory that these massive doses that are given to children have an impact on autism. There could be something to it. Now some people say no, some people say yes, I’d like to see studies. The bottom line is they have to get vaccinated. When I was going to school as a young guy, polio was a really big problem and vaccines knocked it out. So the vaccines are very important, but we have to study the vaccines and we have to be very, very careful with vaccines.”

What’s some of the most important advice you’ve given your kids?

“That’s an easy question. No alcohol. No drugs. No cigarettes.”

Is there advice you’ve been given sometime that you wish you would’ve taken that you didn’t take?

“Well, Ivanka [my daughter] and my wife Melania will say ‘now be presidential,’ because sometimes I’ll hit back very hard and it doesn’t sound presidential. But my retort to that is, if I didn’t, you know I started off with [17 Republican challengers] and we have two left. I have two left. And frankly, if I didn’t hit hard I think you’d be interviewing probably somebody else.”

What mis-characterizations has the media saddled you with?

“I think I’m a very nice person. I love people. I like to help people. And I think the media makes me look like a mean person. And I think I’m a nice person. I love people. I love to help people.”

Why do you think you should be elected president?

“Because I can do the best job. I’m the only one that will make America great again. I know the other candidates. They’ll never bring us to the promise land. They’ll never make great trade deals. They’ll never great with the military. They’re controlled by special interests. I’m not. Again, I’m not taking money from anybody. If I don’t win. I really see a lot of problems for the country. There’s some many problems for the country that a politician, number one, can’t solve, and number two, won’t solve because they’re bought off with campaign contributions.”

Contrast the above to what other candidates have said about vaccines, like what Democrat front-runner Hillary Clinton ($215,477 from pharma) tweeted:

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

Ted Cruz ($63,018 from pharma), Trump’s main primary rival, told USA Today:

Of course children should be vaccinated, this issue is largely silliness stirred up by the media.

John Kasich ($7,625 from pharma) told Ohio’s Dayton Daily News:

You have to get vaccinated. This is not a choice. Are you kidding me?

The socialist and far-left extremist Bernie Sanders ($64,175 from pharma) who’s entire platform is more intrusive government like the corrupt vaccine program is the worst candidate of them all. In fact, he is the only candidate who actually criticized Trump for his stance on vaccines in an MSNBC interview with Rachel Maddow following the September GOP debate:

I think the evidence is overwhelming that vaccines do not cause autism. And it really is a little bit weird for Trump – who, I presume, has no medical background – to be raising this issue. And obviously it is a concern. When somebody like that says it, you’re gonna find thousands of people now who are gonna hesitate to give their kids the shots, and bad things may happen.

Yet Age of Autism’s managing editor was dumb enough to describe Sanders as “a chink in the armor of the status quo” of censorship, even though he openly supports censoring discussion of vaccine dangers. AoA has also praised Hillary’s “autism plan” with the vaccine debate-censoring Huffington Post and even expressed a desire to work with her. Worst of all, AoA has trashed Trump – repeatedly. They are guilty of continuously misinforming their readers about where the candidates stand on this issue, even though the right choice in this presidential race is more obvious than ever. If the issue of vaccine safety is an important enough issue to make or break a vote for any particular candidate, then the only candidate who deserves the vote is Donald Trump.

Threats Prove Cartoonist Right About Vaccine McCarthyism

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

By Jake Crosby

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Read HuffPost-Censored “Trace Amounts” Review

11182234_1033170500043804_1044751554482490461_n

Just weeks after “Trace Amounts” was reviewed at The Epoch Times, The Huffington Post removed the below April review of the same documentary for reasons not even specified to the author. No explanation has ever been given for the removal, despite requests. With the recent promotion of “Trace Amounts” by actor Jim Carrey, now is a better time than ever to reproduce the film review that Huffington Post took down for no given reason.

Film Seeks to Compel Parents to Ask Hard Questions about Mercury and Vaccinations

By Tamar Abrams

There are few issues more polarizing these days than vaccines. Merely saying the word forces us to claim a side, often vehemently. Which is why it’s interesting that the filmmakers of Trace Amounts: Austism, Mercury and the Hidden Truth say, “Many people think we are anti-vaccinations. But once they see the film, they realize we are not.” A film that attempts to shine light on the dangers inherent in one component of vaccines without taking a stand against vaccines, Trace Amounts is earnest and geeky at the same time.

The film’s director, Eric Gladen, came to the issue through a personal experience. At the age of 29, he cut himself on a rusty nail and received a tetanus shot in an emergency room. Within a short time, he was seriously ill. He blames the illness on mercury poisoning from the thimerosal contained in the tetanus injection. Quitting his job as an engineer, he embarked on a crusade to get thimerosal removed from all vaccinations and injections. If the comprehensive research that followed had resulted in a film called Trace Amounts: Mercury’s Dangers, you likely wouldn’t be reading this blog. But Gladen’s major theory in the film is that the thimerosal contained in vaccines is a major contributor to the “epidemic” of autism in children.

Shiloh Levine, Gladen’s co-director, acknowledges that most childhood vaccines have not contained thimerosal since the early 2000s, but cautions, “It is still contained in flu shots, but most parents don’t know to ask about it. We want to help them make decisions based on an educated choice, especially since the CDC is not revealing everything they know.” The film is chock full of anti-mercury arguments: scientists and researchers give lots of opinions and statistics that certainly seem to show a strong connection between mercury and autism. And, given that it is possible to request flu vaccines that don’t contain thimerosal, parents might want to err on the side of caution. Of course there is a price for that: thimerosal-free flu shots cost an additional $3 dollars or more.

Gladen admits that for many, the film is initially a lightning rod in the vaccine debate. “Some people come to a screening and are not there with an open mind,” he says. “But after seeing it, they are just mad. It is clear that the CDC and others have severe financial stakes in not giving all the information they have. It is stunning to watch the audience reaction – they leave arguing with the CDC’s position, not ours.”

While Gladen insists he is not anti-vaccinations, he also understands those who take that position. “Anti-vaxxers are not crazy,” he says. “We need to turn the vaccine system upside down and correct the system. Injecting children with mercury is one of the bigger crimes against humanity.” He believes a third party should provide oversight to our nation’s vaccine program, ensuring its safety and accountability by the large pharma manufacturers.

Trace Amounts appears to be gaining followers, driven mostly by an endorsement from Robert F. Kennedy Jr and a grassroots community that is hosting screenings of the film. Gladen and Levine were recently in Washington DC to lobby members of Congress for legislation removing mercury from all medications. While they admit that it is an uphill labor, Levine quickly adds, “This is a labor of love. We live and breathe and eat Trace Amounts.”

Whatever side of the vaccination debate parents are on, we all share the common goal of ensuring our children’s well-being. Spending 90 minutes watching Trace Amounts wouldn’t do any of us any harm and might compel you to ask more questions the next time your child is scheduled to receive a shot.
