CNN Opposition Researcher Supports Vaccination Injury Cover-Up

Note that Autism Investigated does not refer to CNN as “journalists,” because they’re not that. They’re political operatives doing their corporate master’s bidding. Take Andrew Kaczynski, who threatened to dox a Reddit poster for superimposing the CNN logo on the face of WWE CEO Vince McMahon in a video of him getting body-slammed by Donald Trump. Before joining CNN, Kaczynski made a name for himself as an opposition researcher for BuzzFeed.

When news broke that the wife of the White House’s new communications director holds anti-vaccine views, Kaczynski pulled no punches.

CNN’s top opposition researcher is so determined to censor vaccine injury stories in social media, he’ll target someone’s wife. Kaczynski and CNN are truly an “enemy of the people” as the president so aptly called mainstream media. Anti-vaccinationists and vaccine skeptics should recognize Kaczynski, CNN and other mainstream news outlets for what they are.

If they want to talk to you, it’s for their benefit and not yours. Don’t give them the oxygen they desire.

Mike Cernovich Attacked By Vaccine Trolls For Vaccination Safety Poll

Mike Cernovich, Today in Politics

Prominent journalist Mike Cernovich has come under fire for taking an opinion poll on vaccine safety. Despite already being under fire for his right-wing views and politically incorrect positions, his vaccine poll was his most controversial yet. And for a fellow who is no stranger to controversy like him, that is really saying something.

Indeed, there are trolls online who have financial incentive to defend vaccines, despite their denials. Fortunately, he does not seem any less interested in taking on the vaccine problem. If anything, the negative responses seem to have energized him.

It is a government agency that must be abolished.

FDA Chief: Expert Witnesses of Vaccine Injury Shouldn’t Publish Papers

Despite claiming to have “empathy” for autism families, FDA commissioner Scott Gottlieb has none. The FDA chief who gave false testimony to Congress about vaccines believes vaccine injury experts should be summarily censored. He also believes expert witnesses to vaccine injury should not be allowed to publish their findings.

In 2009, Gottlieb wrote that the vaccine-autism link should be summarily dismissed to protect vaccines:

Fears about autism have been a growing impediment to higher vaccination rates – and thus a growing public-health danger. 

In that same article, Gottlieb also supported the campaign to censor publications by expert witnesses to vaccine injury:

[Andrew Wakefield’s] original research on this issue was already controversial – 10 of the 13 authors retracted some of the findings in 2004, but Wakefield, its lead author, has not.

The “retraction” happened when the editor of The Lancet decided that expert witnesses to vaccine injury should not be allowed to publish on vaccines. That editor Richard Horton then bullied those 10 coauthors into signing a statement supporting combined measles-mumps-rubella vaccination. Gottlieb cites this “retraction” as evidence against the paper.

Now he has barred his senior staff from meeting with Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and other proponents of a vaccine safety commission.

Regardless, Scott Gottlieb should not be FDA chief because he should play no role in promoting products his agency regulates.

He is also one of the doctors who lies about vaccine dangers.

Joel Harrison’s Selective Paranoia: Autism Investigated’s Editor Made Up MPH Degree, But Dr. Montanari’s Attacker Was Just “Some Nut Case”

Harrison ECBT

Joel Harrison, Every Child By Two

…but when I contacted George Washington U, they responded that they give out no information on students, not even confirming they actually received a degree from them. Seems a bit extreme? And the library has NO record of an MPH thesis by Jake or Jacob Crosby! -Joel Harrison, Dun! Dun! Dunnnnnnnn!!!

Joel Harrison is a pro-vaccine blogger for pharma front group Every Child By Two. He appeared on Autism Investigated repeatedly demanding to see the editor’s epidemiology thesis for his Master of Public Health (MPH) degree. The editor respectfully declined and gave his reasoning.

But as the featured quote makes clear, Harrison couldn’t let go. So he decided to call the editor’s alma mater to find out the truth! Those mercury-laced flu shots he gets every year apparently made him more intelligent.

His grudge against Autism Investigated seemingly stems from the one prior Autism Investigated post that actually mentioned him by name. Even though the post is from 2016, he’s still irked that Autism Investigated referred to one of his online rants as a rant. When it then became clear that he was using the thread to pump his own blogs with clickbait, Autism Investigated canned his comments.

He then returned after scientist Dr. Stefan Montanari was punched in the face for raising his voice against vaccinations. Harrison showed his paranoia is selective:

Did the person who punched him mention vaccines? Nope! Is there any mention that the assailant was a vaccine supporter? Nope! In law your claim and that of other antivaccinationists would be called: “facts not in evidence.” I guess for antivaccinationists it never entered their minds that he could have just been some nut case.  

Joel Harrion’s Selective Paranoia: A Summary

So the man punched Dr. Montanari in the face for speaking out after his talk on vaccines. The man also knew who Dr. Montanari’s wife was enough to then threaten her. Yet the assailant was just “some nut case.”

But Autism Investigated’s editor doesn’t actually have a master’s degree, and George Washington University is in on the cover-up. Makes sense.
"seems a little crazy"

Carolyn Maloney, Retract Your Comment and Apologize to Autism Families

Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney has just won the Democratic primary against her challenger. Autism Investigated told readers to tell her she deserves to lose her seat after her campaign said she “does not believe there is a link between vaccinations and autism.” The statement came as her opponent Suraj Patel reportedly out-raised her in campaign dollars. What she should do now is retract that statement and apologize to the autism community.

In fairness to Maloney, however, Suraj Patel is a real piece of work. He called Carolyn Maloney an “anti-vaxxer” as an insult, claiming she “attacks doctors and scientists.” In other wacky news, he said he wants to abolish US Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Nothing stops the spread of vaccine-“preventable” diseases like open borders, apparently. The voters weren’t convinced, and he lost to her in a blowout.

Now it’s up to Carolyn Maloney to make things right and restate her commitment to vaccine safety. Whatever one thinks of her specific policy proposals, she knows about the vaccine problem:

Currently, the CDC has responsibility for both vaccine safety and promotion, which is an inherent conflict of interest increasingly garnering public criticism.

As a Congressional Democrat, she is in a unique position to turn her party around on vaccination. Autism Investigated wants to like her, wants to support her and wants to celebrate her re-election. Do the right thing, apologize and re-emphasize your commitment to solving the vaccine problem, Congresswoman Maloney!

TOP ITALIAN SCIENTIST PUNCHED IN THE FACE BY VACCINE MAFIA

Dr. Stefano Montanari, PandoraTV

Dr. Stefano Montanari was punched in the face by a vaccine thug while talking to parents of vaccine-injured children. Previously, Dr. Montanari and his wife Dr. Antonietta Gatti did research finding that vaccines are contaminated by micro-and-nanoparticles. Their laboratory was already raided and their materials have been seized. He writes in a desperate letter to the United States below:

While I was cordially talking with these people, suddenly, for no apparent reason, a gentleman came up behind me shouting “Don’t dare raise your voice!” I turned my head and, in a fraction of a second, unexpectedly, he hit me with a violent punch between my ear and my cheekbone. For a moment I lost my senses and I was supported by those around me, while the character was moving away, crossing my wife who, meanwhile, was coming out on the sidewalk. To her, that gentleman shouted a death threat.

What Dr. Montanari describes is coming to America. Scientists here have been targeted for their research on vaccinations. A doctor has received a death threat from someone who said he plans to massacre anti-vaccinationists, and the FBI blamed her. It’s only a matter of time until what happened to Dr. Montanari starts happening in America.

Other disturbing issues in the letter are signs that the government will renege on its promise to overturn mandatory vaccination law. The Minister of the Interior Matteo Salvini made statements supporting Dr. Montanari, only to face a full-out assault by the fake news media and political elite. God bless Minister Salvini for putting Italians first!

ADNKRONOS (ITALY): “The controversy on vaccines breaks out”

Matteo Salvini, AFP

Translated from Italian

The controversy about the vaccines explodes after the declarations of the Minister of the Interior Matteo Salvini. “I believe that 10 mandatory vaccines are useless and in many cases harmful and dangerous”, said the Viminale owner in his telephone speech this morning at Radio Studio 54, triggering a series of reactions. “On vaccines” – he added – “I guarantee the commitment already made in the electoral campaign to allow all children to enter the classroom. But we are two in the government, there is an alliance with the M5S and I’m reasoning with the Minister of Health Grillo.”

DI MAIO FRENA – Commenting on the statements of Salvini, the Deputy Premier Luigi Di Maio explained: “The contract speaks very clearly : we want to review the Lorenzin decree but in the sense of simply being able to ensure a vaccination protection to people and especially children.” Then – he added – “everyone has their opinion on vaccines, you know ours.”

THE POLITICS WITH BURIONI – Among those who commented on the words of Salvini is the doctor and scientific writer Roberto Burioni. “No, Minister Salvini, ten vaccines” – he wrote in a tweet then retweeted by former Prime Minister Renzi – “are not useless and even less harmful, in fact they protect you, your children and your voters, this is a very dangerous lie from someone who is responsible for the security of my country. It is very troubling. The ones I report” – they have underlined – “are supported by very solid scientific data.”

Salvini’s car arrived just around the corner. “I vaccinated my children” – he said – “Some vaccines save lives, ten vaccines for some children are useless and some dangerous, so I am not a ‘No Vax’ and there are many documented adverse reactions.” Burioni compared that to other fellow doctors who think the exact opposite of Salvini. “I believe that the health of the children is up to the mother and father” – added Salvini – “and then some vaccines are essential, too many vaccines are likely to hurt. No child can be excluded from school and from kindergarten. This is a program in the League, this is in the government contract. Then professors confront each other over God’s charity. I have had my children vaccinated” – Salvini concluded  – “thank God they’re all right. From measles we must save ourselves, other vaccines seem absolutely superfluous.”

THE MINISTER OF HEALTH COMES – Health Minister Giulia Grillo clarified: “We will take the appropriate decisions in accordance with the government allies, but clearly this is an issue that must first be discussed by the Ministry of Health.” And she stressed: “All the controversy is only instrumental and aimed at creating a media circus that I do not care about.” “I want to reiterate once again” – the minister continued – “and I will never tire of repeating it, that vaccines are a fundamental tool for primary health prevention, and that political discussions are only the best ways to offer them to the population. ”

“We are working” – she explained – “to find the best solution on the one hand to guarantee the attendance of children in kindergartens and on the other side place the revision of the Lorenzin law decree at the center of the parliamentary debate”. “We are pleased” – she added – “that the Minister of the Interior is interested in such an important issue, as well as the Minister of Education. I just want to clarify that the obligation is a political argument, which has to do with a strategy of political type, but scientific evaluations” – she concluded – “do not compete with politics “.

Salvini responded to Minister Grillo: “Hers is the competence on vaccines, I share her thoughts, we will stick to that and the government contract”. “To me too, as a father and a minister” – he added – “the health of children is at heart and that everyone is guaranteed access to the nursery, the kindergarten and the following classes. The idea is that it is better to educate  than to oblige. We are working on it. The important thing” – he concluded – “is that in September all children can enter the classroom.”

THE POSITION OF THE ISS – The Higher Institute of Health also intervenes. “In the event that the vaccination programs stop, the vaccine- preventable diseases would come back,” they underline, taking up in a footnote the statements of the World Health Organization. “Even if better hygiene, hand-washing and clean water help protect against infectious diseases, these diseases” – the Institute president Walter Ricciardi said – “can be spread regardless of the level of hygiene.” “Don’t vaccinate, and in a short time” – he warned – “diseases that were infrequent would appear again, such as diphtheria, pertussis, measles, mumps.”

The Charles Krauthammering of Vaccination Skepticism

Recently dead political commentator Charles Krauthammer wrote in 2017:

…what was [Trump] doing meeting with Robert Kennedy Jr., an anti-vaccine activist pushing the thoroughly discredited idea that vaccines cause autism? We know from way back during the Republican debates that Trump himself has dabbled in this dubious territory. One could, however, write it off as one of many campaign oddities that would surely fade away. Not so, apparently. This is not good. The idea that vaccines cause autism originally arose in a 1998 paper in the medical journal The Lancet that was later found to be fraudulent and had to be retracted. Indeed, the lead researcher acted so egregiously that he was stripped of his medical license. Kennedy says that Trump asked him to chair a commission about vaccine safety. While denying that, the transition team does say that the commission idea remains open. Either way, the damage is done. The anti-vaccine fanatics seek any validation. This indirect endorsement from Trump is immensely harmful. Vaccination has prevented more childhood suffering and death than any other measure in history. With so many issues pressing, why even go there?

News has just broke that Charles Krauthammer has died. Is Autism Investigated sad? Not at all.

Vaccine Adverse Event Under-Reporting System “Proves” Vaccine is Safe

Pediatrics – the official journal of the dumbest of the world’s dumbest profession – is at it again. They are now claiming the DTaP (Diphtheria, Tetanus, acellular Pertussis) vaccine is safe. Their source: the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), co-managed by FDA and CDC. The problem with VAERS is that it is an entirely passive reporting system. That means only a tiny fraction of events are even reported, since it’s done voluntarily.

Ironically, Pediatrics has dismissed research analyzing VAERS to show vaccines are dangerous. Yet here the journal is now using VAERS to say a vaccine is safe, oh the irony! The editor-in-chief of Pediatrics actually blogged about this study in a post titled, “A Safe Look at 16 Years of National Reports on DTaP Vaccine Adverse Events.”

Even worse, the investigators are all with FDA and CDC. Those are the federal agencies that run VAERS and should know better than anyone how the database should and should not be used. If VAERS were truly an adequate system, there would be no need for the Vaccine Safety Datalink. That is the much more complete surveillance system comprised of millions of HMO records that is both maintained and restricted by CDC. But with all the hypocrisy of the vaccine state, using VAERS to prove vaccines are safe is nowhere near a new low for them.

Dead Merck Vaccine Chief Wanted You to Appreciate Brain Injury

The Merck logo is a more accurate depiction of what Dr. Mahmoud represented than any actual photo of his face.

A former president of Merck’s vaccine division is dead. While his death brings sadness to the vaccine industry and his own family, it brings none to Autism Investigated. Dr. Adel Mahmoud brought such disasters upon us as the shingles vaccine, the HPV vaccine and the combined measles-mumps-rubella-varicella (MMRV) vaccine. Even worse than the horrors he created, however, was his support for censoring anything that showed vaccines were poisoning kids.

For instance, BBC positively reported on a scientist being disciplined for reporting a vaccine-autism link:

The MMR was introduced into the UK in 1988, but became increasingly controversial following Andrew Wakefield’s study published in the Lancet in the late 1990s, which linked the vaccine with autism.

That study has now been discredited, and Dr Wakefield faces the prospect of serious professional misconduct charges.

According to Mahmoud:

“…that knowledge was twisted in such a way to play in the hands of the anti-vaccine movement and not really appreciate what vaccines are all about.”

Tell us, Dr. Mahmoud, what parents of vaccine-injured children should “appreciate” about vaccines.

“They are about protection of individual, but also protection of the society so you achieve ‘herd immunity’.”

That’s why you should appreciate your child’s brain injury! So your child can protect children for whom the vaccine wasn’t effective or immunocompromised children your child will probably never meet anyway. Thanks doc!

The fact is, we shouldn’t gloat over his death. It’s not to say he was a good guy, which he wasn’t. However, the damage has already been done and will be carried on by others.
