IVANKA TRUMP: “importance of vaccinating your children cannot be overestimated.”

The first daughter of the United States who is often thought to be the most influential of President Trump’s children has come out pushing vaccination. Even after her father said there were problems with vaccines and spaced them out for his own children, Ivanka Trump retweeted an article from the Wall Street Journal while stating “the importance of vaccinating your children cannot be overstated.”

Most of the reported measles cases are in New York and many New Yorkers who have opted out of vaccines are Jewish. Much of the basis for dismissing vaccine concerns are because The Lancet editor Richard Horton stated in 2004 that being an expert witness for vaccine-injured kids as Dr. Andrew Wakefield was constituted a “fatal conflict of interest.” Horton also stated that it was such a fatal conflict, it justified committing research fraud by omitting vaccine adverse events.

That same editor 10 years later would deny the relevance of sharing the anti-Semitic opinions of ex-Klan leader David Duke while authoring an anti-Israel letter that ran in his journal. Ivanka Trump converted to Judaism when she married her husband Jared Kushner. How could she trust Richard Horton more than Andrew Wakefield? He actually met with her father during the election and reminded voters of his campaign promises to do something about vaccine injury.

In contrast, Horton showed up outside Trump Tower during the transition period to ask the president-elect for “5 minutes” on Twitter. He then promptly blocked Autism Investigated for requesting he restore Dr. Wakefield’s study. Horton has no problem with the fact that medical records were stolen from the children in that study in order to defame it. Between Wakefield and Horton, there is no question who the Trump family should trust. It’s not Richard Horton.

Arthur Allen, David Gorski and Marge Talbot Admit They Hate Freedom

Imagine you wrote about mercury in childhood vaccines with some seriousness in The New York Times Magazine. Then imagine a couple years later changing tune and writing a pharma talking point-filled screed at the request of your dominatrix wife, who was funded by vaccine groups. Finally, you learn many more years after that that The New York Times “journalist” she made you emulate was forced out of journalism following his humiliatingly one-sided reporting and became a pharma PR agent. What would you do?

If you were POLITICO editor Arthur Allen, you would shoot the messenger by blocking the person who told you all that on your social media. That’s exactly what Allen did.

It’s natural to hate someone for something you don’t have, as Arthur Allen clearly feels he doesn’t have freedom. At the end of his forgettable book Vaccines, he acknowledges his wife this way:

Finally, I can’t properly express the gratitude and admiration I have for my wife, Margaret Talbot, a kind person who has never thought to discourage my dreams.

“who has never thought to discourage my dreams.” -Thou doth protest too much, Art.

Someone who actually went to interview him, however, gave the real scoop, “She wears the pants in that relationship.”

Boy does she. Who mentions his wife in his journalism bio, especially when she does not reciprocate the favor in her bio? Clearly, it’s a man who features a quote like this at the top of one of his articles:

“Appeals to freedom are like the gateway drug to pseudoscience.”

That was said by none other than evicted “Science”Blogger David Gorski. In 2010, Autism Investigated’s future editor revealed that he was working on a clinical trial for a drug by a big vaccine maker that was in partnership with his employer. Readers complained to his employer, leading Gorski into a victimhood frenzy begging for “free speech” and “academic freedom” he clearly wants for himself but not for others. The trial was since terminated after Gorski failed to enroll patients. He also really didn’t take well to videotaped questioning by Autism Investigated’s future editor in 2013, which led to Gorski blocking the editor on Twitter in 2017.

David Gorski, Arthur Allen and Margaret Talbot might all come from different backgrounds and have different personalities. If there’s one thing they have in common, however, it’s this: they all hate freedom and are not afraid to say so.

Lamar Alexander Let Vaccine Company Murder Infants in His Home State

The Tennessean ran a pro-vaccine op-ed last month by Senators Lamar Alexander and Marsha Blackburn. In response, Autism Investigated’s editor submitted a letter to the editor reproduced below. The letter was never published.

Senators Lamar Alexander and Marsha Blackburn have published an op-ed repeating the famous cliché “Vaccines save lives.” Yet when Alexander was Governor of Tennessee, vaccine makers actively tried to hide evidence of vaccination’s role in the deaths of Tennessean infants. In an internal memo of the pharmaceutical company Wyeth (now part of Pfizer), company employees are encouraging the deliberate dispersal of different vaccine lots to different geographic areas. Their reasoning was to make it harder for clusters of SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) cases to be linked to a particular lot of vaccine, citing a vaccine-associated SIDS cluster in Tennessee. The memo is dated August 27, 1979 and was sent just months after Governor Alexander took office.

The unnecessary injuries and deaths from vaccination at that time were thanks to nationwide adoption and enforcement of state vaccine mandates in the late seventies. Due to the disastrous policies of states like Alexander’s, Congress indemnified vaccine manufacturers from all liability leading to the problems we have today.

Since then, Lamar Alexander’s Senate Majority Leader and fellow Tennessean Senator Dr. Bill Frist tried to indemnify makers of the mercury-based vaccine preservative thimerosal on the premise of homeland security. Curiously, one of the federal government’s original thimerosal defenders Dr. Robert Davis became a coveted “Governor’s Chair” at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center the year Senator Alexander become ranking member of the Senate HELP Committee. Dr. Davis coauthored an abstract summary obtained through FOIA of research linking thimerosal to autism and other disorders.

JB Handley Credits Mark Blaxill, MBA, for Dead Epidemiologist’s Epidemic Denial-Debunking

According to rich ignoramus and vaccine crime apologist JB Handley in his overhyped and gaffe-filled book How To End The Autism Epidemic:

Diagnostic substitution as a credible explanation for the rise in autism cases experienced a very short shelf life. Data from California, Minnesota, and the US Department of Education quickly repudiated the diagnostic substitution argument, but first the authors of the 2002 study had to retract their results, after a methodological flaw was pointed out to them by Harvard MBA and coauthor of “Denial” Mark Blaxill. Dr. Lisa Croen, the lead author of the 2002 study implying no autism epidemic, reevaluated her data and concluded that, after taking into account Mr. Blaxill’s criticisms (which he published in a scientific journal), “diagnostic substitution does not appear to account for the increased trend in autism prevalence we observed in our original analysis.”

According to Handley, Mark Blaxill, MBA, made a team of research scientists retract their conclusions. Impressive right? Well actually, the criticisms came from a letter published in the same journal that had three authors.

The affiliation of the third author tells us who the real brains was behind the epidemic denial-debunking analysis Blaxill takes credit for:

3 Emeritus Professor of Epidemiology, McGill University, Montreal Canada.

In 2010, Autism Investigated’s future editor wrote a thorough debunking of a bogus thimerosal-defending study Mark Blaxill was instrumental in initiating. It shared a coauthor with the 2002 study Handley falsely credited Blaxill for debunking. In the post for Age of Autism and at Blaxill’s editorial demand, Autism Investigated’s future editor wrote that the researchers who made the 2002 study authors retract were “led” by Blaxill. However, they were not led by him.

He got to coauthor the critique through his unexplained invitation to present at the Institute of Medicine in 2001, despite having no credentials or publications of any kind. His presentation was a crude graph of California’s reported autism prevalence. The meeting was curiously held in his hometown of Cambridge, MA, not Washington, DC, where the institute is based. He then invited SafeMinds members from the meeting to his house for pizza and beer. SafeMinds reciprocated by inviting him to join the organization’s board on which he would serve for 12 years before resigning after the organization’s hijacking of the 2012 congressional autism hearing.

In contrast to Blaxill’s spontaneous involvement, critique coauthor and Epidemiology Professor Walter Spitzer had been an elected member of the institute since 1985. That was before it became totally corrupt, obviously. He was also the coauthor who answered any questions or comments about the critique, and who the coauthors of the 2002 epidemic denial study retracted their conclusions to:

4 Correspondence should be addressed to Walter O. Spitzer, 4920 Bath Road, Bath by Kingston, Ontario K0H1G0, Canada; e-mail: spitzerw@attglobal.net

Sadly, that’s no longer possible according to a 2006 obituary:

With great sadness, we announce the passing of Walter O. Spitzer on April 27, 2006. Following complications resulting from a recent car accident, he died peacefully at Saint Mary’s of the Lake Hospital in Kingston with his family by his side, and is now with his Lord.

Last October, Mark Blaxill gave a copy of JB Handley’s book crediting Blaxill for Spitzer’s work to Donald Trump. While Spitzer is with his Lord, Blaxill is crediting himself for Spitzer’s important work to our president who is now pushing vaccines. JB Handley did not respond to this article, even after Autism Investigated showed it to him.

“Trace Amounts” Leaves a Trace: Oregon Kills 2nd Exemption-Killing Bill

Eric Gladen, take a bow. Your documentary is still remembered in the hallowed halls of Oregon’s statehouse.

Autism Investigated saw Trace Amounts four years ago just after the first vaccine exemption-killing bill was killed in the Oregon legislature as a result of its screening. Watching the film made it immediately clear how it caused the death of the bill. Autism Investigated posed the following question in its review of the film at the time:

What if the most effective argument is simply shining a light on the corruption within federal agencies responsible for immunization policies states mandate and on the greater greed – not the greater good – behind the “trace amounts” of one particularly toxic vaccine ingredient?

The systematic corruption behind the toxicity of vaccines is what this documentary argues. That’s what killed an exemption-killer in 2015, and that is just what has killed another exemption-killer in 2019. Unfortunately, state legislatures now considering mandates for the first time didn’t have the benefit of already seeing Trace Amounts. Just as Oregon has killed another exemption-killing bill, Washington has just killed its vaccine exemptions and Maine’s Senate has just passed an exemption-killer.

As more state vaccine exemptions come under threat, the story of Oregon should be a lesson to us all. Killing vaccine exemption-killers doesn’t happen by promoting the poison you’re trying to stop the mandating of or by preserving the government program covering up the poisoning. It certainly won’t happen by calling crooked politicians who whitewash the vaccine-autism cover-up as “genuine in getting to an answer” or by telling advocates “you are out of your fucking mind” for wanting the corrupt vaccine program to die. It happens by speaking the truth about the poison vaccines are and about the lies the vaccine people tell us. That’s what Eric Gladen’s Trace Amounts documentary does and that’s what we should all be doing.

Well done, Eric!

Gardiner Harris is Now a Pharmaceutical Public Relations Agent

According to ex-New York Times’ disgraced vaccine propagandist Gardiner Harris on LinkedIn, he is now “Director of Communications” for Foresite Capital:

Bringing my 25 years of experience at the highest levels of journalism to the venture capital industry, where I am charged with raising the visibility of this premier healthcare-focused investment firm.

Its investments include vaccines, including the development of one that is being led by GlaxoSmithKline’s former vaccine chief. Nine years ago, Autism Investigated’s editor complained to The New York Times about Gardiner Harris’ conflict of interest and abusive conduct. Then-public editor Clark Hoyt responded at the time:

You charged that Gardiner Harris has a conflict of interest in covering the issue because his brother works for a company that includes pharmaceutical firms among its customers. His brother works for a company that sells genetic testing equipment to academic institutions and pharmaceutical companies. Gardiner Harris said he does not know if any of the customers are makers of vaccines but assumes some are. I find your notion that this constitutes a conflict of interest to be too much of a stretch. The brother is not himself involved in vaccine production or sales. The connection you are trying to make is too tenuous to be credible.

Now Gardiner Harris is running PR for those who invest in vaccine production and sales. Harris’ reporting was cited in fellow vaccine propagandist Arthur Allen’s 2005  flip-flop in favor of the mercury-based vaccine preservative thimerosal. Allen wrote a major 2002 piece in The New York Times Magazine that featured early concerns about the toxin. He blocked Autism Investigated on Twitter after being reminded that the journalist his wife made him emulate is now a pharma PR agent.

The pharma PR firms are hiring Pee-Wee Allen.

REVENGE OF LARGE MARGE TALBOT: Dividing Robert Kennedy’s Family

From “Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure”: “Be sure tell ’em Large Marge sent cha!”

David Talbot is the founder of Salon.com, which published Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s landmark article Deadly Immunity. When the site pulled Kennedy’s article, Talbot rightfully slammed the move as editorial cowardice and caving to pharma pressure. Talbot is also the brother and brother-in-law of longtime pro-vaccine media power couple: Margaret Talbot of The New Yorker and Arthur Allen of POLITICO. Now Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s brother, sister and niece just published a screed in POLITICO Magazine attacking his criticism of vaccines. What a coincidence…

Allen began spreading vaccine propaganda in direct response to Kennedy’s Deadly Immunity, a 2005 article about the government’s cover-up of injury from the mercury-based vaccine preservative thimerosal. It was published in both Salon.com and Rolling Stone, although Salon.com would delete it years later. Allen’s wife Margaret Talbot meanwhile was a senior fellow of the New America think tank, funded by Gates, Soros and the pharmaceutical industry. She could not have been thrilled that the website her brother founded published Kennedy’s piece. According to one journalist who visited her and Allen’s house to interview him and was promptly kicked out by her to do the interview elsewhere, “She wears the pants in that relationship.”

She must’ve gotten some flak when her brother’s website published Kennedy’s article. As her own husband admitted when he flip-flopped, he had previously written about thimerosal with some honesty:

As the writer who first told the thimerosal story in depth in the New York Times Magazine two and a half years ago, I have been astonished to see how badly it has been handled since.

He didn’t write that sentence.

Hey Pee-Wee Allen, be sure tell ’em Large Marge sent cha! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

HHS Secretary Stumbles on President Trump’s Past Vaccine Skepticism

Donald Trump and Dr. Andrew Wakefield in 2016

Following President Trump’s recent vaccine-pushing remarks, his HHS Secretary Alex Azar has been desperately trying to downplay the significance of Trump’s vaccine skepticism during the 2016 election. According to Breitbart, Secretary Azar told the media:

“As you know, some years ago there was a debate about this issue that was partly fueled by data that has since been discredited.”

Undoubtedly, Azar was referring to the work of Dr. Andrew Wakefield. He met with Donald Trump during the election cycle.

Curiously, according to paraphrasing by Arthur Allen of POLITICO:

Azar said Trump’s statements during the 2016 campaign linking vaccination to autism were based on a “debate about this issue but it’s been settled.” 

So Azar’s way out is to say that there was still a debate in 2016, even though it was partly based on Dr. Wakefield’s “discredited” work. That doesn’t work when Donald Trump actually met with Dr. Wakefield during the 2016 election cycle specifically to discuss the autism-vaccine link. Both President Trump and Secretary Azar would not respond to Autism Investigated’s inquiries on Twitter.

That is because they both know the truth of what happened. The president has backed down from his campaign promises about doing something to address toxic vaccinations. Meanwhile, his 2020 opponents in the Democratic Party have doubled down on their support for them.

BACKING DOWN: President Trump says, “They have to get their shots.”

Well this election cycle didn’t last long for Autism Investigated. Yesterday, the Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden officially declared his candidacy. As vice president, Biden called on children to get an HPV vaccine with their MMR vaccine. Today, President Trump has called on people to “get their shots.” Asked about measles, he said, “this is really going around now.”

In 2016, Autism Investigated endorsed Donald Trump for president. At the time, both his primary opponents and both Democrat candidates were bought by the vaccine industry. One of those candidates is again running for the Democratic nomination, Senator Bernie Sanders. There is no one in the very wide field of Democratic candidates who express any skepticism of vaccines. Even President Trump’s only 2020 primary challenger was the running mate of a third party candidate in 2016 who endorsed vaccine mandates.

Without absolving President Trump of responsibility for his own remarks, the issue was mishandled from the very beginning. Despite repeated efforts by Autism Investigated to get infiltrator Mark Blaxill away from any involvement with Congress due to his 2012 hearing hijacking and instrumental role in the 2013 hearing collapse, he was part of congressional discussions during the transition period anyway. He played a key role in shooting down a proposal by then-Congressman Jason Chaffetz to hold a hearing on vaccine safety issues. Days later, Blaxill’s books coauthor and Ageofautism.com editor Dan Olmsted committed suicide. Blaxill also met with Donald Trump twice.

It wasn’t all Blaxill though, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. showed a blatant double-standard between President Trump and his Democratic predecessor Barack Obama. Under Obama, Kennedy delayed release of his book on the mercury-based preservative thimerosal for a year and then released a hacked version for another year before finally publishing it in full. Only after Autism Investigated leaked the full manuscript did he do the latter. Just one year into Trump’s presidency by contrast, Kennedy decided it was a good idea to bash him to a pro-vaccine paper. Just one month ago, Kennedy also called President Trump the “worst president ever” at a press conference at Yale.

Kennedy has also refused serious efforts at reaching out to the Trump Administration. Last year, Kennedy shot down a letter Autism Investigated proposed for him to send to the NIH director with President Trump copied. Days later, Kennedy launched a campaign premised on a discredited doctor’s false representation of himself as a government whistleblower. Lately, Kennedy has been ignoring the government’s cover-up of vaccine injury in favor of asking for “placebo-controlled trials.” Of course, his uncle created the vaccine program.

Then there is the fact that the Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein who appointed the special counsel is the brother of CDC’s vaccine director Nancy Messonnier. She lied to Congress about vaccine risks with Dr. Anthony Fauci last February. Just last week, Rosenstein joined the current attorney general at a press conference to announce the release of the special counsel’s now-completed report. Rosenstein was reportedly part of a decision not to charge President Trump with obstruction of justice.

Regardless of the reasons that led up to this point, Trump has made a clear departure from what he said two years ago. In 2017, he promised “I’m not gonna back down” from addressing problems with vaccines. In 2019, it’s now clear he has.

CREEPY JOE BIDEN: All Children Should Get HPV Vaccine With MMR!

It’s happened, former Vice President Joe Biden has released his third and highly anticipated presidential campaign announcement. His declaration makes him the automatic frontrunner to the Democratic nomination given that he has consistently dominated primary polling despite never officially being a candidate, but now it’s official. Joe Biden will be running to defeat President Trump in the 2020 election, but unlike President Trump, Biden has never entertained the idea of safety issues with vaccines. On the contrary, he wants all children to get the dangerous HPV vaccine with the already dangerous MMR vaccine!

In fairness, there is a legitimate reason for Biden to be so vocal about cancer. His son tragically died of brain cancer at the age of 46, although there is not even a prospect for a brain cancer vaccine among all the potential vaccines in the pipelines. But given Joe Biden’s problem with boundaries among women and girls, it almost makes sense that he would be so in favor of aggressively vaccinating against an STD in children.

So Autism Investigated has a compromise proposal: only children around Joe Biden should get the HPV vaccine.
