Marianne Williamson Wants “Independent” Scientists AND Vaccine Mandates??

Marianne Williamson has said that CDC and FDA are too cozy with big pharma and called for an independent panel of scientists to look into vaccines. Yet she also supports mandatory vaccination.

Williamson apologized for correctly calling vaccine mandates Orwellian and said she supports them. However, she says that as president she will have independent scientists look into vaccinations the government recommends. Which is it? That’s what Trump said he’d do as president-elect, before retracting within hours of meeting with Robert F. Kennedy Jr. How can we count on someone who wants independent scientists to look into vaccines and supports vaccine mandates? Why do all these leftists think that assigning government bureaucrats the same roles as pharmaceutical companies somehow is not the same as assigning a pharma lobbyist to run the vaccine program? It makes no sense.

It should be mentioned that Marianne Williamson is at 1% in the polls. So she has a steep hill to climb to the primary and then to the presidency should she win the Democratic nomination by some absurd probability. Sure, nobody took Trump seriously when he declared his candidacy in 2015. He then rocketed to first place and won the election; polls don’t have a good track record these days. So anything is possible.

However, it is probably a safe bet that Williamson won’t get far given how much she is contradicting herself so early on. So at least she won’t even have the opportunity to break her promise as President Trump has done. No need to waste any time watching her on tonight’s debate.

CALL GOVERNOR GAVIN NEWSOM AT (916) 445-2841 TO VETO SB276 BILL

Call Governor Newsom’s office at (916) 445-2841, and tell him to veto SB276 bill.

Gavin Newsom signals opposition to tightening California vaccination rules

Gov. Gavin Newsom threw cold water Saturday on state legislation that would tighten California’s rules on providing medical exemptions for childhood vaccinations.

“I like doctor-patient relationships. Bureaucratic relationships are more challenging for me,” Newsom told reporters at the California Democratic Party convention in San Francisco. “I’m a parent. I don’t want someone that the governor appointed to make a decision for my family.”

Sen. Richard Pan, D-Sacramento, has proposed a bill that would require the state Department of Public Health to approve every request for a medical exemption to a child’s immunization schedule.

Newsom did not explicitly say he would veto the bill, SB276, which passed the state Senate last month and moves now to the Assembly. But he cast serious doubts on its prospects should it reach his desk.

“With respect, as a father of four that goes through this on a consistent basis, that’s just something we need to pause and think about,” Newsom said.

A measure that Pan carried in 2015 eliminated California’s personal-belief exemption that parents could claim to excuse their children from shots for measles, chicken pox, whooping cough and other infectious diseases. Children without a medical exemption must be fully vaccinated to attend public or private schools. California is one of three states where that is the case.

Pan contends that more oversight is necessary because unscrupulous doctors are providing bogus medical exemptions, putting some schools at risk of spreading contagious disease because not enough students are vaccinated to provide “community immunity.” Opponents of his bill, who have descended on the Capitol by the thousands, argue that the government should not be involved in a decision best left to families and their doctors.

Newsom said he was a “strong supporter” of the 2015 vaccine law. He also rejected any notion that he was “parroting that mantra” from anti-vaccine skeptics who believe immunizations are linked to autism and other health problems.

“I believe in immunizations. I do not subscribe to their point of view broadly,” he said.

“However, I do legitimately have concerns about a bureaucrat making a decision that is very personal.”

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.

Crooked Hillary Clinton – “I believe in science!”

la-1469126158-snap-photo

In her sleep-inducing nomination speech at the Democratic National Convention, Crooked Hillary Clinton appeared to cryptically attack Donald Trump for his stance on vaccinations by saying he does not believe in “science.” While she only specifically mentioned climate change, it would appear to anyone who has followed this issue that she also meant vaccines.

Early last year on Twitter, Crooked Hillary Clinton had this to say about the questioning of vaccine safety:

The science is clear: The earth is round, the sky is blue, and . Let’s protect all our kids.

Later that year in the second GOP presidential debate, Donald Trump expressed a very different view:

Autism has become an epidemic. Twenty-five years ago, 35 years ago, you look at the statistics, not even close. It has gotten totally out of control.

I am totally in favor of vaccines. But I want smaller doses over a longer period of time. Because you take a baby in — and I’ve seen it — and I’ve seen it, and I had my children taken care of over a long period of time, over a two or three year period of time.

Same exact amount, but you take this little beautiful baby, and you pump — I mean, it looks just like it’s meant for a horse, not for a child, and we’ve had so many instances, people that work for me.

Just the other day, two years old, two and a half years old, a child, a beautiful child went to have the vaccine, and came back, and a week later got a tremendous fever, got very, very sick, now is autistic.

I only say it’s not — I’m in favor of vaccines, do them over a longer period of time, same amount.

But just in — in little sections. I think — and I think you’re going to have — I think you’re going to see a big impact on autism.

Now fast forward to the Democratic National Convention that just happened, where Crooked Hillary accuses Donald Trump of not believing in “science”:

I believe in science…Now, you didn’t hear any of this from Donald Trump at his convention….But we already know he doesn’t believe these things.” 

The choice between Donald Trump and Crooked Hillary is as clear as a choice between vaccine safety and continued lies about risks from those vaccines. So this November, get out and vote for Donald Trump to be our next president and Make America Great Again!

Autism Investigated Shuts Down Bernie Sanders, Censorship Candidate

BN-MG647_Bernie_DV_20160125145318

I think the evidence is overwhelming that vaccines do not cause autism. And it really is a little bit weird for Trump – who, I presume, has no medical background – to be raising this issue. And obviously it is a concern. When somebody like that says it, you’re gonna find thousands of people now who are gonna hesitate to give their kids the shots, and bad things may happen. – Bernie Sanders, The Rachel Maddow Show, September 17, 2015

Donald Trump is the only good presidential candidate on the vaccine issue, that’s why Autism Investigated endorses him. However, there is only one candidate who trashed Trump for speaking out for vaccine safety despite similar concerns expressed by the two doctors in the same GOP debate, who calls for censorship of the issue, who said the evidence against vaccines causing autism is “overwhelming” despite being approached with the overwhelming evidence for an association by Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and another physician and who even called unvaccinated children killers. That candidate is far-left extremist, race-baiting demagogue, Democratic Party presidential candidate and ice cream flavor poster boy Bernie Sanders. And because he encourages censorship, any comments of support for his candidacy will not be allowed at Autism Investigated from here on out.

Look at a quote from him on his Senate page: “if I have a kid who is suffering from an illness who is subjected to a kid who walks into a room without vaccines that could kill that child and that’s wrong.” For someone so concerned about protecting children who would have adverse reactions to vaccines, he sure does not think it is wrong for children to be needlessly poisoned as a result of the vaccine program’s lies.

At the time Sanders made that statement, the governor of Sanders’ home state of Vermont said he would veto any bill that would rid the state of its philosophical vaccination exemption. But two days after Sanders formally announced his presidential candidacy in the Democratic Party primary on May 26th, the governor signed into law a bill that did just that – making Vermont the first state to repeal its philosophical vaccine exemption. California would shortly follow.

Most bizarrely about Bernie Sanders, he seems to be surprisingly well-liked among vaccine skeptics considering he’s a bona fide vaccine liar. The managing editor for the self-styled vaccine safety and Democrat-edited blog Age of Autism actually wrote that “Sanders represent[s] a chink in the armor of the status quo” of censorship, even though he called for censorship of this issue. Even more disturbing is how Autism Investigated has come under fire by Bernie supporters on Facebook for supporting Trump. And when you remind them what Bernie Sanders has said, they completely dismiss it. Here is what one person responded when Autism Investigated pointed out that Sanders likened Republican candidates to mental patients and trashed Trump for speaking out for safer vaccines:

Trump IS crazy…so Sanders sayingthat isn’t really mocking…it would be stating facts..I know as a Trump supporter…those are something you don’t ever get to hear…facts!

When this post about Trump reiterating his stance for vaccine safety in a recent interview was shared in the vaccine skeptic Facebook group AWAKE California, a Bernie troll came in and called people “fascists” and “bigots” for supporting Trump before she was finally banned. The lies that Trump is a bigot, racist or fascist are commonly pushed by Sanders and his supporters, who have also backed the violent shutdown of Trump’s rally in Chicago. One of Sanders’ terrorists even tried to rush Trump on stage in Ohio before being stopped by Secret Service. If Sanders’ supporters have done all this, it’s not difficult to imagine them infiltrating vaccine skeptic forums to mislead people into thinking Sanders is a good candidate when he is the polar opposite.

The bottom line, however, is this: any candidate who supports shutting down the only candidate who supports vaccine safety and discussion of vaccine safety altogether does not deserve a forum of support on any website that supports vaccine safety and certainly not in Autism Investigated’s comments, Twitter feed or Facebook threads. When DailyKos banned linking vaccines to autism in its discussion threads, Autism Investigated responded by banning any comments that link to Kos to prevent readers from posting over there only to be banned for their views. Autism Investigated will do the same here by trashing any comments and blocking any Twitter accounts that post anything supportive of Bernie Sanders in AI’s discussions.

That said, anybody can still comment here regardless of which candidate they support, just take your support for the ice cream man elsewhere. For example: if you submit a comment citing leftist blogs like HuffPo and Salon to falsely portray Sanders as some sort of crusader against big pharma even though both sites actively censor vaccine safety, your comment will be canned. There are plenty of places like the Age of Autism blog where you are more than welcome to advertise your support for Sanders, as that site already has a habit of praising the horrible candidates who are the Democrats with its nauseatingly obsequious outreach to Hillary Clinton.

If you are upset that you are being “censored” for your support of Bernie Sanders, don’t be angry with Autism Investigated. Be angry with Sanders for supporting censorship of this issue and causing this new rule to be imposed on all his supporters here at Autism Investigated. Big pharma has given him more money than any of the remaining Republican candidates for a reason. And in case you love Sanders so much that you have to see him pushing censorship of the vaccine issue to believe it, here is the video of him doing just that:

Bernie Sanders is now shut down at Autism Investigated. No feeling the Bern here.
