THIN SKIN: Ruth “Roobs” Leiser Begs Followers To Report Meme

Roobs Leiser claimed the editor “dug through [her] socials.” The image of her that Autism Investigated used appears when you click on a top Google Image result.

(She probably meant panties.)

Autism Investigated recently took to task one of Kat Von D‘s biggest Twitter critics. Ruth “Roobs” Leiser was called out for accusing anti-vaccinationists and vaccine skeptics of wanting dead children.

Roobs responded by blocking Autism Investigated. She then clandestinely called on her followers to report Autism Investigated’s tweet about her (see above). The tweet Roobs is referring to is the editor’s tweet about Autism Investigated’s previous post.

Her equally shrill followers are complying as she individually thanks them for bravely reporting Autism Investigated’s meme. Autism Investigated’s response is at the end.

Let the games begin…

Fighting hate with the C-word

Because at least one of her supporters must have blue hair

How dare he use your lingerie selfie you posted of yourself everywhere!

I’m so desperate for your affection, I need to show you photographic proof.

Ruth “Roobs” Finn Leiser and 100,000 Others Want Sudden Infant Deaths

This is to mock people who accuse anti-vaccinationists and vaccine skeptics of wanting children to die. Vaccinations not only cause autism, they cause SIDS and increase infant mortality.

After Kat Von D came out against vaccinations, a Scottish woman who takes lingerie internet selfies and who like everybody has heard of responded in bold defiance. Ruth “Roobs” Finn Leiser is, according to her Twitter bio: a “she/her. writer, feminist, founder of GRLCLB. fan of talking about mental/sexual health. also dogs. instagram: roobs_grlclb.” She doesn’t want children to die of diphtheria!

Instead, Leiser wants children to die sudden infant deaths before they could ever get diphtheria. And she got over 100,000 all-totally real Twitter accounts to agree with her.

After all, if someone disagrees with vaccines it’s like totally because they want children to die of diphtheria right? Because like herd immunity. So by that logic, it’s only rational to believe that Roobs wants children to be killed by vaccinations.

And Roobs is like totally real as well. This is totally not a gimmick to sell more tee-shirts and tote bags as she does on her website, now sold out for nothing to do with all the attention she’s gotten today. OMG!

All about that herd immunity guys.

KAT VON D ON VACCINE INDUSTRY: “not in the well being of man kind.”

Von D

Kat Von D and husband Leafar Seyer, Credit: Livekindly.co

Cosmetics entrepreneur Kat Von D has said she isn’t vaccinating her expected child. She then brilliantly shut down critics and the following talking points of the vaccine industry:

“but like herd immunity”

“This is why measles is coming back”

but like herd immunity

Kat Von D shuts down vaccine apologist. Jezebel

The all-knowing Jezebel and its resident genius Anna Merlan then responded with this whopper of a lie:

That is, again, not true. Vaccines are one of the most regulated medical products in the world, and in the United States, vaccine policy is overseen by a safety commission (albeit one that is often dismissed by vaccine opponents because it’s backed by the FDA, which they believe is evil.) 

FDA’s commissioner is clueless, but FDA does not oversee vaccine policy. That would be the CDC, which also recommends vaccines. It’s precisely because vaccines are over-regulated that they are unsafe. Like the rest of us anti-vaccinationists and vaccine skeptics, Kat Von D knows vaccines are not regulated like other products such as cosmetics.

Vaccines are a captive market whose supply and demand is determined by the government. They’re mandated at the state level for school entry. And if you get hurt, you don’t sue the doctors or pharmaceutical companies. You sue the Department of Health and Human Services. It is precisely because of awful state and federal laws expanding their use that an independent commission is needed in the first place.

Now to end on a lighter note, please enjoy these tweets from “vegans” who are pro-vaccine despite the aborted fetal tissue in vaccines:

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.

Tell Secretary Pompeo to Oust Peter Hotez from Israel for “Hate Group” Lie

State Secretary Mike Pompeo, Israel National News

Mike Pompeo was sworn in as the 70th US Secretary of State last month. The US embassy in Israel was relocated to Jerusalem three weeks ago. The US-Israel Binational Science Foundation published a puff piece about board member Peter Hotez in its newsletter two weeks ago. In light of these developments, Autism Investigated renews its call for the State Department to oust him from the foundation’s board. Contact Secretary Pompeo and demand Hotez’s firing!

Honorable Secretary Mike Pompeo,

I am writing to ask that you remove Dr. Peter Hotez from the US Israel Binational Science Foundation. I have previously written the department under your predecessor Secretary Tillerson, but no one has addressed the substance of my complaint.

Peter Hotez has proven himself unfit to represent our country in any diplomatic capacity. At an academic keynote lecture he delivered in February, Dr. Hotez called organizations like Texans for Vaccine Choice and the National Vaccine Information Center “a hate group” and said “They are a hate group that hates [our] family and hates [our] children.”(1)

Whatever your opinion is of these specific groups, they are not hate groups. They seek to raise awareness for issues concerning vaccine safety and the right to opt out of school vaccine mandates for children.

Dr. Hotez is also extremely hypocritical to judge the intent of such groups when he is a member of the National Academy of Medicine (formerly the Institute of Medicine). The IoM produced reports proclaiming vaccination safe that purported to be scientific. In reality, IoM report authors had already decided in secret meetings to produce that conclusion at the behest of their federal sponsors before looking at any scientific evidence.(2)

Regardless of one’s position on vaccine safety, however, Dr. Hotez disqualifies himself from being worthy of such a position of international diplomacy. His zealotry, disregard of other viewpoints and contempt for people who do not share his ideological commitment to vaccination is a disgrace to our wonderful country and everything that we stand for. His representation contradicts President Trump’s commitment to work on vaccine safety with Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and is counter-intuitive to the historic relocation of our embassy to Jerusalem. We should not have Peter Hotez representing US interests to any foreign partner here or abroad.

Sincerely,

Jake Crosby, MPH

Remember These Groups That Lie About Vaccinations

American Academy of Pediatrics Headquarters, HBRA Architects, Timothy Hursley

Here are all the non-government groups in the United States that are poisoning children with vaccines. If we didn’t have an exhaustive list before, we do now.

The groups made it easy with this letter to President Trump citing the lying CDC. A vaccine safety commission would be independent from that agency. They provide a list of the junk science defending vaccines provided by the American Academy of Child Poisoners, er, “Pediatrics,” (AAP) that also published many of those garbage papers.

These groups will tell you that correlation does not equal causation, but use correlation to sell vaccination and censor discussion. Every single organization behind this letter – national, state and local – signed its name underneath. Along with AAP, they include Autism Speaks, the American Medical Association, the American College of Physicians, the American Academy of Family Physicians and the American Academy of Neurology. In other words, they include the big, money-grubbing autism “charity” along with the docs who caused this problem. Of course, they were indoctrinated in medical school by vaccine creators. The American Public Health Association has also signed on (the editor was a member, now no more).

That’s why we need a vaccine safety commission. We need a government that will protect children from poisonous vaccines, not promote them.

Here is the list of all the complicit groups who cosigned the letter.

New York Times Lies Autism and Vaccines Were Studied in 15 Million Kids

Carroll The New York Times

Aaron Carroll, MD, MS is a pediatrician and contributor to The New York Times, Credit: Writer Junkie

For every vaccine promoter who drops a whopper of a lie, another comes along to top it. Who better than The New York Times in direct response to President Trump’s statements on vaccination? In The Times’ published and then republished article “Not Up for Debate: The Science Behind Vaccination,” pediatrician Aaron Carroll wrote:

There is simply no scientific evidence that links vaccines to autism. Many, many, many studies have confirmed this. The most recent Cochrane systematic review of research on the MMR vaccine included six self-controlled case series studies, two ecological studies, one case crossover trial, five time series trials, 17 case-control studies, 27 cohort studies and five randomized controlled trials. More than 15 million children took part in this research. No one could find evidence that vaccines are associated with autism.

a statistically significant link found at this point would almost have to be a false positive, given the millions of children already studied.

Contrary to Carroll’s article, 15 million children were not studied for an increased risk for autism from vaccination. The review objective makes that clear:

To assess the effectiveness and adverse effects associated with the MMR vaccine in children up to 15 years of age.

The review analyzed studies relevant to the overall safety and effectiveness of the vaccine. Studies relevant to autism were only a fraction of those in the review. Does it confirm vaccines don’t cause autism as Carroll said? No.

The methodological quality of many of the included studies made it difficult to generalise their results.

Here were the review’s actual conclusions:

The design and reporting of safety outcomes in MMR vaccine studies, both pre- and post-marketing, are largely inadequate. The evidence of adverse events following immunisation with the MMR vaccine cannot be separated from its role in preventing the target diseases.

“Largely inadequate” – that’s what the review concluded about vaccine safety. Carroll cites this review to declare vaccination “not up for debate.” It’s doubtful a doctor with a master’s in “health services research” misread the review abstract. This is someone who would describe himself as “immersed in the science of vaccines”:

It would be better for our vaccination policy for this not even to be a topic for debate, certainly not by those who aren’t immersed in the science of vaccines.

He completely distorted that science, and he’s a total liar. His article should be retracted by The New York Times, not that this crooked newspaper ever will.

Pro-Vaccine Meta-Analysis Double-Counts All Children Born in Denmark Between 1991 and 1996

table pro-vaccine meta-analysis

Taylor, Swerdfeger, Eslick Pro-Vaccine Meta-Analysis, Table 1

The total sample evaluated among these cohort studies consisted of 1,256,407 children. WRONG

A widely reported, pro-vaccine meta-analysis of papers by vaccine promoters double-counted every child born in Denmark between 1991 and 1996. As a result, it was erroneously reported as being a study of over 1.2 million children by Autism Speaks, CNN, Forbes and David “Orac” Gorski among other bastions of integrity.

In “Vaccines are not associated with autism: an evidence-based meta-analysis of case-control and cohort studies,” the authors estimated the total number of children in the cohort studies by adding up the samples of each study. The problem is that the two largest studies used mostly the same children, as the first table in the meta-analysis makes clear.

Here is one study population description:

All children born in Denmark from January 1990 until December 1996

Here is another:

All children born in Denmark from January 1991 through December 1998

Every child born in Denmark from January 1991 to December 1996 was double-counted. As a result, the authors calculated the total children who participated in all five studies as numbering 1,256,407.

That number is completely bogus. It is not even possible to calculate an estimate of the number of children who participated in either Danish study by reviewing the published manuscripts. Not surprisingly, the authors’ grasp of the material they analyzed reflects their grasp of the vaccine issue overall.

…due to the controversial nature of the topic and the high volume of publication on this issue for both sides of the argument it is unlikely that so many papers on one side of the argument (that would have met our inclusion criteria) remain unpublished.

It is precisely because this issue is controversial that “so many papers on one side of the argument” don’t get published! There’s literally an entire website dedicated to unpublished study results showing that mercury in vaccines causes autism. You publish anything critical of vaccines, it is at imminent risk of retraction for criticizing vaccines. You submit even a letter to the editor saying that someone else’s study linked vaccines to autism, your letter gets canned.

Don’t worry about it though, because the senior author of the pro-vaccine meta-analysis is a cautious parent. His two oldest children got febrile seizures after vaccines, so what does he do? He vaccinates his youngest anyway after giving the child Tylenol.

My first two children have had febrile seizures after routine vaccinations, one of them a serious event. These events did not stop me from vaccinating my third child, however, I did take some proactive measures to reduce the risk of similar adverse effects. I vaccinated my child in the morning so that we were aware if any early adverse reaction during the day and I also gave my child a dose of paracetamol 30 min before the vaccination was given to reduce any fever that might develop after the injection. As a parent I know my children better than anyone and I equate their seizures to the effects of the vaccination by increasing their body temperature.

What do his Harvard colleagues say about that?

The use of acetaminophen in babies and young children may be much more strongly associated with autism than its use during pregnancy, perhaps because of well-known deficiencies in the metabolic breakdown of pharmaceuticals during early development. Thus, one explanation for the increased prevalence of autism is that increased exposure to acetaminophen, exacerbated by inflammation and oxidative stress, is neurotoxic in babies and small children. This view mandates extreme urgency in probing the long-term effects of acetaminophen use in babies and the possibility that many cases of infantile autism may actually be induced by acetaminophen exposure shortly after birth.

He’s as bad a parent as he is a scientist.
