Despite claiming to have “empathy” for autism families, FDA commissioner Scott Gottlieb has none. The FDA chief who gave false testimony to Congress about vaccines believes vaccine injury experts should be summarily censored. He also believes expert witnesses to vaccine injury should not be allowed to publish their findings.

In 2009, Gottlieb wrote that the vaccine-autism link should be summarily dismissed to protect vaccines:

Fears about autism have been a growing impediment to higher vaccination rates – and thus a growing public-health danger. 

In that same article, Gottlieb also supported the campaign to censor publications by expert witnesses to vaccine injury:

[Andrew Wakefield’s] original research on this issue was already controversial – 10 of the 13 authors retracted some of the findings in 2004, but Wakefield, its lead author, has not.

The “retraction” happened when the editor of The Lancet decided that expert witnesses to vaccine injury should not be allowed to publish on vaccines. That editor Richard Horton then bullied those 10 coauthors into signing a statement supporting combined measles-mumps-rubella vaccination. Gottlieb cites this “retraction” as evidence against the paper.

Now he has barred his senior staff from meeting with Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and other proponents of a vaccine safety commission.

Regardless, Scott Gottlieb should not be FDA chief because he should play no role in promoting products his agency regulates.

He is also one of the doctors who lies about vaccine dangers.

    Nearly there Daily Mail …. the answer is Yes – most definitely – it did
    and the Finnish & UK govts paid out compensation for once (Ian Duncan Smith eventually behaved like the honest man he should strive to be – which of course he is not !)

    Did the 2009 flu vaccine give people narcolepsy? Experts blame spike in sleep disorder on the shot – which the US has stockpiled for the next swine flu outbreak
    •Swine flu, or the H1N1 strain of the virus, swept the globe in 2009
    •In Europe, scientists found a surge in cases of narcolepsy afterwards
    •They believe a particular flu shot may have triggered an autoimmune problem that causes the disease
    •Narcolepsy cases did not increase significantly in the US where the problematic ingredient was not used in the shot
    •But now the US stockpiles the immune response-boosting ingredient in case of another H1N1 pandemic

    • Hollywood mocked the narcolepsy-vaccine link in the science fiction film “Contagion,” just as it did the autism-vaccine link.

        No doubt at the same time as the whole of Hollywood was pursuing young children in a predatory fashion ! The casting couch has morphed into the casting playpen.
        There isn’t a single film star there isn’t some talk about these days (all the big names).

    Hi Jake,

    Very important to be clear that the Lancet publication was not connected to the litigation over MMR as claimed by Brian Deer, the Sunday Times and the British Medical Journal – which was never true and finally dismissed Judge Mitting in the British High Court back in 2012 in the appeal of Prof Walker-Smith. Of course, it is not surprising to find that expert witnesses in litigation are also authors of scientific papers on the subject, but not in their role as expert witnesses – nor has it been the convention to declare expert work as a competing interest. I am just saying this because there might be an ambiguity, although I am sure you already aware.

    • Thanks for commenting, John. Of course I know about all that, and I think I was clear in what I was referring to. Issues specific to that particular paper are all side issues though, especially when compared to a top medical journal openly boycotting anything vaccine-related by scientists who stand up for vaccine-injured kids.

    Shine also tweeted stories that put forth debunked information about the danger of vaccines at least a dozen times, Mediaite reported. Any link between autism and vaccines has been disproved by various studies over the years.

    “Biggest national security threat is autism!” she wrote in a tweet that tagged Trump, according to the Huffington Post. “How can we run a country when half of all boys will be autistic by 2050?”

    “1 out of 10 black boys has autism,” she wrote in another tweet.
