DISAPPOINTED TO DEATH: The Long, Slow Suicide of Dan Olmsted (RIP)

When news hit of Dan’s death two years ago, it was a shock to everyone. Autism Investigated was no exception. The words “heart attack” and “stroke” came to mind, certainly never suicide. Autism Investigated dedicated a week-long tribute to Dan Olmsted, and then the cause of death became news: “overdose.” He wasn’t an addict, and he was one of the last people to make a fatal mistake when it came to medication. What happened was his realization that despite holding the title of AgeofAutism.com editor, he had no editorial independence and never did.

The tragic story of Dan’s death really begins in 2013, the year of Autism Investigated’s beginning. The 2012 congressional autism hearing was hijacked by a sponsor/editor of the site who even coauthored all of Dan’s books. He killed the story of the hijacking on his own blog. After the article about the fiasco ran elsewhere, Dan wrote a short post smearing the piece:

It’s bad journalism, glaringly unsourced and without giving the “targets” an opportunity to give their version of events. I stand by the choices I’ve made in dealing with this unfortunate situation, and will be following up in the near future.

Instead of following up, he ran a statement by the sponsoring organization behind the congressional hijacking. Only after that did he agree to publish a follow-up piece by the author of the original story. As reader outrage at the congressional fiasco mounted in the post’s comments, Dan closed the thread without consent of the author. “Go in peace for all mankind,” he derisively ordered his own readers.

The author of the piece voiced opposition to the site’s censorship of comments, before getting banned from ever contributing anything to the website again. Subsequently, another site was founded. That site is Autism Investigated.

But despite how heavily controlled the discussion became on Age of Autism, Dan could not ignore Autism Investigated’s reporting. When Autism Investigated broke the news of the 2013 congressional hearing cancellation, Dan appeared in the comments just to deny that a related post that suddenly disappeared from his site wasn’t taken down deliberately. He was so angry that he then wrote a post calling Autism Investigated “web conspiracist.” He also did not take well to being reminded of the fact that the 2012 congressional hearing hijacking involved the same key players as the 2013 cancellation. When reminded of their sponsorship behind his site, he dismissively said, “I confess! Shoot me now.”

“Shoot me now.” In just a few years, those words would take on a whole new meaning.

A year after the cancellation, the congressional committee that hosted the 2012 hearing and cancelled the 2013 one would have a new chair in Jason Chaffetz. And about a year after Chaffetz’s new chairmanship began, Dan Olmsted made clear he was not a fan of congressional inaction:

You’d think [Congressman] Cummings, after saying “something’s wrong with this picture” of multiple vaccines and a soaring autism rate, would take the logical next step and demand Thompson himself be called as a witness. (Even if Chaffetz said no, the public stink would be progress).

And yet in January 2017 – during the transition period – Congressman Chaffetz finally committed to hold a hearing on vaccine safety issues. The idea was shot down by Dan Olmsted’s books coauthor and site sponsor/co-editor who had played the instrumental role in the congressional failures of yesteryears: Mark Blaxill.

One would think the autism community would learn its lesson about involving someone like him. Yet wealthy vaccine crime apologist JB Handley insisted on guaranteeing Blaxill’s involvement in congressional outreach.

Days after the proposed hearing was shot down and the draft of his final book with Blaxill was completed, Dan Olmsted took his own life. Autism Investigated wouldn’t find out about how he died for another month. Three days before his suicide and on the day of the inauguration, he wrote in a final message to Autism Investigated:

I join you in wishing trump well. My progressive affinities have moderated lately and I am optimistic, as I have to say you were before the election

Knowing what may eventually happen, Dan Olmsted decided to die optimistic.

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.

Jason Chaffetz Triggers Liberal Snowflakes on Vaccine Dangers

Congressman Chaffetz reacts to snowflake audience getting triggered after he tried explaining to them the concerns raised about vaccine injuries. Other triggers for this audience include but are not limited to: being told the president will be held to the standard of the law and being reminded about where their electricity comes from.

You gotta hand it to Jason Chaffetz. Being a congressman is hard work, but not many things demonstrate that like the town hall full of whiny cry-babies he had to deal with on Thursday night. Among the things the audience gave him crap for: investigating the government cover-up of vaccine dangers.

But it was the entire hour-and-a-half town hall that was difficult to watch, not just the audience’s ignorance on vaccination harms. Chaffetz was shouted down throughout the entire event simply for stating his opinion on a number of issues when asked by the audience. They even shouted him down right after he told an emotional story about losing both parents to cancer. That’s how insufferable these people were.

One so-called teacher asked how she is supposed to “teach” her students about “safe spaces” when the nation isn’t a safe space. Lady, you shouldn’t “teach” students about safe spaces precisely because this nation is not a safe space. Your job is not to give students an earload of make-believe, your job is to teach them.

I was already itching to stop playing the YouTube when at the end, some overweight, neurodiverse autist who clearly couldn’t control his own hand-movements asked a question about the president’s “BS” opinion regarding vaccines. As soon as Chaffetz discussed how concerns were brought to his office, the audience got triggered once again: “Noooooooooooooo!!!! Science! Science! Science!!!!”

Although there is virtually nothing else that the audience full of dirty hippies, feminist harpies and neurodiverse nitwits said in response that is audible, one of those snowflakes alleged the following was asked:

Why yes, as a matter of fact – his name is William Thompson, and he still works as a senior scientist for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. What better way to shut these infantilized protesters down than to subpoena him and have him tell the truth under oath? Okay – maybe not shut down, just expose as being even thicker than they come across.

After all, they may never stop crying over this…

So pleased she is not the President. I thanked her for her service and wished her luck. The investigation continues.

Ask Congressman Chaffetz To Investigate Crooked Hillary Vaccine Lies

ap_jason_chaffetz_jef_150116_16x9_992

In a 15-minute video posted on YouTube of his speech to constituents of fellow Republican Congressman Dave Trott, Committee on Oversight and Government Reform Chair Jason Chaffetz discusses the many scandals of Democrat nominee for president Crooked Hillary Clinton. Those include the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) cover-up of vaccine side-effects which she has pledged to continue if she becomes president in statements to Scientific American earlier this month:

My opponent [Donald Trump] in this race has consistently discounted scientific findings, from his comments about vaccines to his claim that climate change is a hoax. These dangerous positions not only put Americans at risk, but can have long term impacts on our country’s growth and productivity.

As president, I will work closely with the talented physicians, nurses, and scientists in our US Public Health Service to speak out and educate parents about vaccines, focusing on their extraordinary track record in saving lives and pointing out the dangers of not vaccinating our children.

Last year, Crooked Hillary sent out a tweet likening vaccine skepticism to questioning the shape of the earth and the color of the sky. Her position has obviously not changed since. Although in 2008 she and Obama claimed to want to investigate the vaccine-autism link, it was all just political speak.

Crooked Hillary Clinton served in Obama’s cabinet with now-former Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, who had gone on record saying her department was instructing media outlets to shun stories on vaccine dangers during the H1N1 scare. Her department later feigned ignorance of the veracity of the quote when questioned in a later news report. Crooked Hillary also arranged a meeting between Secretary Sebelius and Dr. Mark Hyman: a physician close to the Clintons who took credit for convincing Robert F. Kennedy Jr. to purge his book on mercury in vaccines of the book chapters on autism and media collusion (Kennedy has since released the complete edition). There is obviously quite a bit to investigate with respect to Crooked Hillary and vaccinations.

Please watch the full video of Congressman Chaffetz below, then thank him for investigating CDC and ask him to investigate Crooked Hillary’s role in the cover-up when she was Secretary of State. He can be contacted here; if she wants a new scandal to implicate herself in, she’s got one.

Please make sure she never gets anywhere near the White House by voting for Donald Trump to Make America Great Again!
