How RFK Advisor Milks Death of Parent Elizabeth Birt For Financial Gain

Mark Fox/The Aspen Times Accident on 82 and Brush Creek Road, Dec 28, 2005

Beth Clay is the lobbyist whose role in falsely representing a key organizer of the 2012 congressional autism hearing did untold damage to congressional outreach. Yet that pales in comparison to the extent that she’s milked the work of a long dead autism parent to promote herself. Her role as “advocacy advisor” of Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is now just the latest result of such selfish opportunism.

Attorney and autism parent Elizabeth Birt may have been one of the most consequential forces in exposing the autism-vaccine cover-up. She was the person most responsible for the original congressional hearings chaired by Congressman Dan Burton in the early 2000s and the first to uncover documents from CDC proving they lied. Then tragically, she died in a car crash at the end of 2005.

Burton’s staffer tasked with looking into the issue was Beth Clay. She served as liaison between the then-congressman who has an autistic grandson and Elizabeth Birt. Material Birt provided to Congress would form the basis of the landmark May 2003 congressional report Mercury in Medicine – Taking Unnecessary Risks, of which she was principal author. Although Clay left her job as Burton’s staffer when the report was produced, she became a lobbyist who used her past employment with Congress to pump her credentials. Yet she was pumping her credentials on the heels of Birt’s work, and she is no longer alive to take credit for it.

Now Clay is advising Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s “Children’s Health Defense” where his focus is pushing for “placebo-controlled” vaccine trials. Below is an email Elizabeth Birt wrote to GlaxoSmithKline’s opposition researcher Brian Deer titled “WHAT’S YOUR PROBLEM?”

As a parent of an autistic child with severe inflammatory bowel disease that was diagnosed at the Royal Free in 1999 I wonder what your problem is. My son was also treated by Dr. Krigsman in 2003 when his entire esophagus was full of lesions. He is now being treated by the head of Pediatric Gastroenterology at Childrens Memorial Hospital part of Northwestern University here in Chicago who AGREES with Drs. Wakefield and Krigsman that my son has an autoimmune disease of his entire GI tract likely caused by a viral agent. I have no idea what your problem is but you are not helping these children who are very sick. Perhaps you need to seek some type of psychiatry therapy Mr. Deer.

The above email was sent just two months before she was killed. Time to finish what she started and continue her barely begun crusade against his evil while Beth Clay gets kicked to the curb.

John Oliver Proves He Knows Vaccine Injury Like He Does Islamic Terrorism

There is nothing more damning of John Oliver than the words of John Oliver. All of the following are from his June 25th episode of Last Week Tonight with John Oliver.

On President Trump’s decision to space out vaccinations:

…it’s the middle ground between sense and nonsense. It’s like saying, ‘It would be crazy to eat that entire bar of soap, so I’ll just eat half of it.’

On exonerated British doctor Andrew Wakefield:

He’s basically the Lance Armstrong of doctors.

On mercury in flu shots still given to pregnant mothers:

So we essentially spent time and energy solving a problem that never existed. It’s like spending years fighting to get marshmallows out of Lucky Charms because a few people think minions can choke to death on them. 

On retired Congressman Dan Burton’s issue with lack of safety studies:

Proving a negative is an impossible standard. And that is also a slippery slope, because it means that I can say to youYouDan Burton, are a DONKEY FUCKER!’

Yet knowingly proving a negative to prove there is no conspiracy to cover up vaccine harms, falsely claiming:

On those rare occasions when there have been issues with vaccines, they’ve been pulled and fast. And I know that that explanation will still not satisfy some.

Finally, and worst of all, on his own infant son born premature:

We are vaccinating him fully, on schedule. And if I can overcome the temptation to listen to the irrational shouting of my terrified lizard brain, then I believe that everyone can.
