Pediatricians Pushing Toxic Vaccinations Hypocritically Demand Open Borders to Prevent “Child Abuse”

Dr. Colleen Kraft, President of the American Academy of Pediatrics

It’s official – pediatricians are the dumbest profession on earth! The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) led the medical community’s opposition to a vaccine safety commission under President Trump. Now AAP is leading opposition to curbing illegal immigration. AAP calls separating illegal immigrant children from illegal immigrant parents “child abuse.” Pediatricians don’t even want families of illegal immigrant children to be detained! That’ll encourage child trafficking!

Never mind that AAP members poison children everyday with toxic vaccinations and lie about it. They say research on adverse vaccine outcomes should be censored to protect public health. Like vaccination, mass illegal immigration also threatens public health. Yet the medical and public health community promotes both!

 

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 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.

ASSISTANT SECRETARY FOR HEALTH ON VAX: “There are no safety issues.”

At the American Academy of Pediatrics’ (AAP) legislative conference, Assistant Secretary for Health and National Vaccine Program Director Brett Giroir said “there are no safety issues” with vaccines. He also told the academy of doctors who openly support the censorship of vaccine risks, “You have an ally in myself and everyone in the administration [on vaccines].”

Thanks to Dr. Sean Gallagher, @TheKidKidDoc, for informing Autism Investigated of this.

(To be fair, the president has said he supports vaccines while raising awareness about their dangers.)

Seems Giroir has a cozy relationship with the pharmaceutical industry, going back to when he headed the Texas A&M Health Science Center.

Including when it comes to vaccines.

He was run out of his post after 18 months, for his ties to industry.

Guess who Giroir also praised? None other than Peter “[you] are a hate group” Hotez:

The Department of Heath and Human Services runs the National Vaccine Program. The department denies any safety problems with vaccines. The department, therefore, cannot be trusted when it comes to vaccines. That’s why we need an independent vaccine safety commission!

And what exactly did Admiral Giroir mean by the AAP having an ally in the entire administration? Even cabinet members who have nothing to do with vaccines? The transportation secretary? The labor secretary? Or…

What the now-Secretary of Energy has to do with vaccines…

Stay tuned.

Kennedy’s Ghostwriter Defended Thimerosal

By Jake Crosby

As surprising as Robert F. Kennedy Jr. chopping out the chapters on autism from his book “Thimerosal: Let the Science Speak” while saying there is no proof thimerosal causes autism, is the identity of one of the professional writers he hired to write his book for him. The creator listed in the file properties of Kennedy’s unpublished manuscript had actually defended the neurotoxic vaccine preservative thimerosal, which appears to shed light on Kennedy’s decision to strike the chapters.

Adam Hadhazy is a “freelance science writer” with his own professional website and linkedin account. He also authored a piece for Popular Mechanics in 2010 defending thimerosal, titled “The Truth About 9 Anti-Vaccine Studies.” In it, he quoted millionaire vaccine industrialist Paul Offit as summarizing Dr. Mark Geier’s research on thimerosal and autism “junk.” Hadhazy also called Dr. Andrew Wakefield “discredited” and wrote that his 1998 Lancet paper on children with autism and bowel disease “largely launched the dangerous anti-vaccination movement.”

Adam Hadhazy further cited the letter former CDC researcher  Thomas Verstraeten wrote to Pediatrics falsely stating that CDC did not conceal any evidence  thimerosal causes autism. Citing Paul Offit, Hadhazy suggested that infants can “conservatively handle thousands of vaccines simultaneously”. The take-away point from all this is that Hadhazy is an all-purpose defender of the vaccine program, and he’s written Kennedy’s book for him. Hadhazy’s “substantive, behind the scenes role” in Kennedy striking the chapters connecting thimerosal to autism is more than evident.

In the Washington Post, Dr. Mark Hyman – celebrity doctor who wrote the book’s preface – takes credit for convincing Kennedy to remove the chapters. Yet Dr. Hyman is an awfully strange person to have done so, given that he has no history of writing about thimerosal. Dr. Hyman further echos a familiar pharma talking point: “Yes, there’s been an increase in autism, even as we take out thimerosal” (Ironically, the CDC data Dr. Hyman relied on to defend thimerosal is not even considered reliable by thimerosal defenders). Hadhazy’s piece for Popular Mechanics on thimerosal and vaccines is heavily laden with pharma talking points.

In Kennedy’s officially released book, the entire part on autism is removed including a chapter titled “Autism Rates Decline When Thimerosal Exposure Levels Are Reduced” and another on the government’s concession that vaccines caused autism in Hannah Poling. The entire part critiquing media coverage was removed as well. Even chapters in remaining parts were pulled. Those include chapters on CDC and AAP’s conflicts of interest, the Breusewitz v. Wyeth Supreme Court decision siding with drug companies, the Homeland Security Rider seeking to protect thimerosal maker Eli Lilly and CDC’s intimidation tactics against scientists such as Dr. Mark and David Geier and Prof. Richard Deth. Those chapters were apparently “too combustible” to keep as well, as was the word “Causative” that was taken out of the chapter title that formerly read “The Verstraeten Study – Causative Links between Thimerosal and Neurological Damage.”

Meanwhile, Age of Autism continues to ardently defend Kennedy, saying on its Facebook page: “If you’d like to piss in the cornflakes, find another bowl.”

It looks like Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has already done that to his own bowl.
