Nico LaHood, Ditch The Dems and Board The Trump Train!

I’m Nico LaHood. I’m the criminal district attorney in San Antonio, Texas. I’m here to tell you that vaccines can and do cause autism. – Attn. Nico LaHood, Vaxxed Nation, August 26th, 2016

Nico LaHood states vaccines cause autism despite the fact that he is a Democrat, even though Crooked Hillary Clinton asserts that questioning vaccine safety is akin to questioning the color of the sky or the shape of the Earth. Exonerated British doctor and Vaxxed: From Cover-up to Catastrophe film director Andrew Wakefield predicts there would be mandatory vaccination across the entire country within two years of her election. In stark contrast, the GOP nominee Donald Trump would never allow that to happen while knowing for years that vaccines cause autism – a stance he reiterated in a recent meeting with Dr. Wakefield.

This election is too important to pass up, and the American people have just one chance to get it right. The choice between Donald Trump and Crooked Hillary is the same as the choice between vaccine safety and mandatory vaccination. That is the choice of the American people, and the choice is now. Staying home on election day is not an option, nor is voting for a third-party candidate who would support mandatory vaccinations anyway and doesn’t even stand a chance of winning.

So there is no waiting and no dawdling – all aboard the Trump Train!

Seth Mnookin No Longer Blogging At PLoS After Libelous Remarks

plosblogheader

By Jake Crosby

On July 21st, “Panic Virus” author and MIT assistant professor Seth Mnookin wrote on his personal website: “From mid-2011 through the end of 2013, I was blogging at the Public Library of Science; those archives can be found here. In the summer of 2014, I began blogging again on this site.”

He no longer links to his PLoS blog from his Twitter bio either. The announcement came only 10 days after I wrote the post PLoS Enables Seth Mnookin to Violate Community Guidelines Unchallenged, calling out PLoS for allowing him to blog there despite the fact that he wrote a libelous post about me one year prior.

The month after Mnookin’s last PLoS blog post, PLoS’s attorney received and acknowledged the evidence that was provided showing Mnookin fabricated the claim that I “crashed” his “invitation only event” at the Public Responsibility in Medicine and Resesarch (PRIMR) conference in December, 2011. In Mnookin’s same libelous blog post, he claimed I “jabbed” him “in the chest” even though I did no such thing. This accusation of jabbing him came two years after the event, and Mnookin provided zero evidence of it ever taking place. That, combined with his provably false allegation above likely led to his expulsion from PLoS.

Mnookin wasn’t nearly as excited about returning to his old blog as he was when he first joined PLoS blogs three years ago, having written:

“…this blog is being relocated to the PLoS Blog Network, which has been built up by the indefatigable Brian Mossop, another #SciO11′er. At  PLoS, I’ll be joining #SciO11 superstars Misha Angrist (Genomeboy), David Kroll (Take As Directed),  Hillary Rosner (Tooth and Claw) and the inimitable Steve Silberman (NeuroTribes), as well as Deborah Blum (Speakeasy Science)…

…so head on over, check out some of the other offerings, and enjoy!”

It is quite amusing to compare that to his terse, two-sentence departure announcement from PLoS. There is not even a farewell post to rave about what a supposedly great experience it was blogging alongside all those “indefatigable” and “inimitable” “superstars.”

Like Mnookin, I never wrote any farewell posts either when I was banished from contributing to Age of Autism. Unlike Mnookin, however, I was still up front about why I was no longer writing for AoA. That did not stop Mnookin from seizing on my ouster in his libelous post about me, concluding:

“Now he’s wandering in the wilderness, hoping that by including my name in the titles to his posts, someone will notice him throwing a tantrum in the corner.”

Looks like my “tantrum” was noticed by someone.

Welcome To The Jungle, Seth.
