The CDC Whistleblower Story Just Keeps Getting Better

Govt Slaves
by Tim Bolen

Last Friday, August 29th, 2014 I attended, and spoke at, the combined AutismOne/Thriiive conference in conjunction with the 42nd Annual Cancer Control Society – held at the Universal Sheraton Hotel in Universal City, California. Brian Hooker PhD spoke just before me. Dana Gorman right after.

There were SIX IMPORTANT NEW REVELATIONS: two newly released pieces of evidence, and four startling Conclusions, that came out of Brian Hooker’s speech.

Many of you have probably already heard that CDC whistleblower Dr. William Thompson has written a letter, and posted it on his lawyer’s website, VERIFYING Brian Hooker’s complaints. The Big Pharma “spin” machine is operating at full power – but their efforts to contain the whole story are laughable. The story is growing, appropriately, as it should, for there is no denying that the CDC got caught with their pants down, and, consequently, their credibility is gone. Fini. The whistleblower, in his letter, verified EVERYTHING Hooker said happened. Read William Thompson’s letter here.

But now – the new revelations…

All of the conference is available, so far, on YouTube in the UNEDITED version. There you can see Brian Hooker’s speech – and it is a very detailed expression of what he and the whistleblower shared. But you will have to scroll to the 5:20 marker of Part (2) to avoid viewing the unedited prep work. Click here to go to the Part (2) YouTube site. There will be a cleaner copy available soon. There was more than one camera running. Before you go watch the speech read the rest of this description.

What you will find, in Hooker’s speech, are DETAILS of how bad the CDC covered things up, and, more, how much detail the whistleblower shared with Brian Hooker. Thompson, as you will find in the video, provided Hooker with private CDC data:

(1) his own hand-written notes (and you can see the actual handwriting),

(2) the, before this, SECRET inside CDC Study Reviewers’ written comments (and they are right there on the screen) – VERY revealing in terms that the “reviewers” of the original CDC studies were VERY CLEAR in their condemnation of those papers. And that, despite the CDC’s own reviewer’s condemnation, the CDC presented them as factual representations of findings.

To me, we are dealing here with clear Criminal Fraud as described in 18 USC 1001.

Criminal activity…

What I suggest is that you, before you take a look at the whole video of Brian’s speech, is that you scroll, first, to the end of the Part (2) video here at 52:49 starting where Brian says “So, anyhow…”, and run it to the end, listening carefully to Brian’s Conclusions, first. I will list the written points here, just below, but I want you to hear him and see him say it.

Conclusions

The CDC cannot be relied upon to conduct ANY vaccine safety studies. They are a conflicted agency. Vaccine safety does not belong in the CDC. Vaccine Surveillance is fine, but not Safety. The same agency that is responsible for pushing vaccine updates, and is, literally, buying, four billion dollars worth, per year, of vaccines, has no business looking at Vaccine Safety – that is a complete conflict of interest. The CDC should not be looking at Vaccine Safety at all. They are a conflicted agency, and it should be taken out of their hands, if not out of the hands of the DHHS.


Although the CDC has “studied” thimerosal and MMR vaccine, they have neglected the health effects associated with the rest of the infant schedule. This is the hall of fame (hall of shame?) – they have received the lifetime achievement award for dubious statistics. They have neglected to look at the health effects of the entire vaccine schedule. The entire vaccine schedule is NOT based on the health of the child. It is based on a bloated vaccination schedule which is out of control.


Everything is on the table. The entire vaccination schedule is on the table.


And the time is right to take action – contact your own Congressman, and make sure they are in contact with Congressman Darrel Issa, Chairman of the Oversight and Governmnent Reform Committee who can begin an investigation of malfeasance. We need an investigation into what is going on in Vaccine Safety – so that we can (1) know what happened to our kids, and (2) prevent further damage of future generations.

I keep saying that Autism is only two things: (1) What is causing it, and what do we do about that? and (2) How do we fix the children and the families? In one of my earlier articles I pointed out that AutismOne with Thriiive.com have banded together to put the answer to question number two in place. If you look at Brian’s next to last slide you will see the names of some of the players putting together some answers to the “What is causing it…”question.

I applaud their efforts…

We are starting to move right along.

The whole conference is on two YouTube videos. It was REALLY Good. You can watch the whole thing by clicking here for Part (1) and here for Part (2). One particularly good lecture was by Shawn Centers DO, the founding President of The American Academy of Pediatric Osteopathy. If you want to see an overview of the Biomedical approach to Autism watch this one by starting at 3:31:20 on part (1) by clicking here.

You can, if you want, hang around for my 40 minute lecture titled “Designing Solutions for the Autism Problem – Now is the time…” To suffer through that click here and scroll to 1:10:25 to start it. There will be my usual blunt humor, entwined with a lecture on how to organize a campaign to get rid of Autism. You can view the Powerpoint presentation, I used, by clicking here. I will do a separate article about this right soon.

Important Points…

There are two very important points to consider: (1) The CDC knows very well how dangerous vaccines really are, and (2) The Whistleblower Dr. William Thompson, is an active participant in the problem solution, now, and is giving advice to Brian Hooker PhD on how to use the information.

Very important points…

Special thanks to Teri Arranga (AutismOne) and Dana Gorman (THRiiiVE.com) for arranging this, all of the speakers, and the group in Brian’s second to last slide who brought Brian here. Also thanks to the management of the Cancer Control Society who managed to get the room for free for all day.

Stay tuned. The fun is increasing. We are just getting started.

Study Finds Evidence for CDC Cover-Up of Link Between Autism and Mercury In Vaccines

Activist Post
by Sayer Ji

A controversial new study published in Biomed Research International titled, “Methodological Issues and Evidence of Malfeasance in Research Purporting to Show Thimerosal in Vaccines Is Safe,” has exposed convincing evidence of wrong-doing on the part of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in actively covering up the causal link between mercury in vaccines (Thimerosal) and harm to infants and children.

According to the review, “There are over 165 studies that have focused on Thimerosal, an organic mercury (Hg) based compound, used as a preservative in many childhood vaccines, and found it to be harmful. Of these, 16 were conducted to specifically examine the effects of Thimerosal on human infants or children with reported outcomes of death; acrodynia; poisoning; allergic reaction; malformations; auto-immune reaction; Well’s syndrome; developmental delay; and neurodevelopmental disorders, including tics, speech delay, language delay, attention deficit disorder, and autism.” [references for the 16 studies can be found here: #3-16]

While the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states there is “no relationship between [T]himerosal[-]containing vaccines and autism rates in children,”[1] the researchers pointed out that a study conducted by CDC epidemiologists found a 7.6-fold increased risk of autism from exposure to Thimerosal during infancy.

Moreover, “The CDC’s current stance that Thimerosal is safe and that there is no relationship between Thimerosal and autism is based on six specific published epidemiological studies coauthored and sponsored by the CDC.

Owing to this glaring contradiction the review sought out to examine closely these six CDC conducted studies to find out how their results conflict with the findings of 75+ years of past research performed by multiple independent research groups that did find clear evidence of harm.

A closer look at the review

The review references 16 studies that show Thimerosal exposure is associated with the subsequent diagnosis of neurodevelopmental disorders such as autism. This brings to the fore the obvious question: ‘how does the CDC conclude that there is no evidence of that relationship?’
According to the review, there 6 studies the CDC references which deny the link:

“These studies include (1) the Madsen et al.[2] ecological study of autism incidence versus Thimerosal exposure in Denmark, (2) the Stehr-Green et al.[3] ecological study of autism incidence versus Thimerosal exposure in Denmark, Sweden, and California, (3) the Hviid et al.[4] study of autism incidence versus Thimerosal exposure in Denmark (also ecological), (4) the Andrews et al.[5] cohort study of autism incidence and Thimerosal exposure in the United Kingdom, (5) the published Verstraeten et al [6] CDC cohort study of autism incidence and Thimerosal exposure in the United States, and (6) the more recent Price et al.[7] case-control study of autism incidence and Thimerosal exposure in the United States. Although the CDC cites several other publications to purport the safety of Thimerosal, only these six specifically consider its putative relationship to autism.”
The review of these six studies found that there were serious methodological issues present, listed as follows:

The reviewers pointed out that all but one of these CDC ‘commissioned’ studies were likely influenced by conflict-of-interest/malfeasance, owing to their consistent methodological errors, their running contrary the body of evidence showing mercury in vaccines do harm, and the implications their questionable results have for the CDC’s aggressive pro-vaccine agenda:
“[F]ive of the publications examined in this review were directly commissioned by the CDC, raising the possible issue of conflict of interests or research bias, since vaccine promotion is a central mission of the CDC. Conceivably, if serious neurological disorders are found to be related to Thimerosal in vaccines, such findings could possibly be viewed as damaging to the vaccine program.”

The only CDC-sponsored study that found a clear link between mercury in vaccines and neurodevelopmental disorders including autism — The Verstraeten et al. (2003) Study[8] — had 5 phases, with each successive phase seemingly manipulated to show less harm. Email evidence obtained through the US Freedom of Information Act of 1950 also indicates that lead researcher may have been pressured to water down the study results.

The study’s five phases:

In the first phase, a subset of medical records were obtained from databases for several of the HMOs whose records were maintained in a central data repository, the Vaccine Safety Datalink: “Results from the first phase of the study released in an internal presentation abstract by Verstraeten et al. [20] (mentioned earlier) using records from four (4) HMOs showed that infants who were exposed to greater than 25μg of Hg in vaccines and immunoglobulins at the age of one month were 7.6 times more likely to have an autism diagnosis than those not exposed to any vaccine-derived organic Hg. Within the same abstract, Verstraeten reports that the risk for any neurodevelopmental disorder was 1.8, the risk for speech disorder was 2.1, and the risk for nonorganic sleep disorder was 5.0. All relative risks were statistically significant.

“In the second phase of the study, a different approach was taken: exposure was compared at 3 months of age, rather than one month. Results of this phase showed that children exposed to the maximum amount of organic Hg in infant vaccines (62.5 μg) were 2.48 times more likely to have autism diagnosis compared to those exposed to less than 37.5 μg of Hg in vaccines. These results were also statistically significant. No assessment against a “no exposure” control was apparently completed in this study phase.”

“In the third phase of the study, in which more data stratification methods and different inclusion/exclusion criteria were applied to the analysis, the relative risk of autism for children at three months of Thimerosal exposure dropped to 1.69. At this point, evidence in an email from Verstraeten, the lead investigator, written to a colleague outside of the CDC (obtained by the authors via the US Freedom of Information Act of 1950 as amended), suggests that Verstraeten could have been receiving pressure within the CDC to apply unsound statistical methods to deny a causal relationship between Thimerosal and autism. In this email, Verstraeten states (Figure 1), “I do not wish to be the advocate of the anti-vaccine lobby and sound like being convinced that thimerosal is or was harmful, but at least I feel we should use sound scientific argumentation and not let our standards be dictated by our desire to disprove an unpleasant theory.”

The fourth and fifth phase of the study used records from only two of the original HMOs and incorporated a third HMO, Harvard Pilgrim, into the analysis. Some critics of the study questioned the use of Harvard Pilgrim, as this HMO appeared to be riddled with uncertain record keeping practices, and the state of Massachusetts had been forced to take it over after it declared bankruptcy. In addition, the HMO used different diagnostic codes than the other two HMOs used in phases 2 and 3. Other criticisms include that the study used younger children, from 0 to 3 years of age, even though the average age for an autism diagnosis at the time was 4.4 years. Since half of the children receiving an autism diagnosis would be over 4.4 years of age, far greater than the maximum age in the study at 3 years, this analysis excluded more than 50% of all autism cases from this HMO. Also, the cohort from this HMO contained 7 times fewer individuals than the main cohort from the previous study (i.e., HMO B), and there was no apparent attempt to assess the power of this HMO to show any statistically significant effect.”

Clearly, this new review indicates what is on the line when it comes to the clear and present danger associated with injecting mercury into infants and children, over and above the already questionable practice of injecting hundreds of active and ‘inactive’ vaccine antigens into our offspring at their most critical and sensitive developmental window. The conventional medical establishment still maintains that there is a scientific consensus on mercury’s safety in vaccines, despite the fact that it began to be phased out from the routine vaccination schedule in the United Sates, European Union, and other affluent countries, in 2005, in order to assuage popular and presumably irrational fears among irrational parents and so called ‘anti-vaxxers.’

The fact that autism and autism spectrum disorder diagnoses have continued to expand, despite Thimerosal’s ‘precautionary’ phase out in 2001 in the ‘developed world,’ is often used as ‘evidence’ that mercury was never a contributing factor. What may be more salient is the phase out reflected a tacit acknowledgment that Thimerosal was indeed a factor in the accumulating evidence for unintended, adverse health effects of vaccines. Also, mounting research now points to substituted vaccine adjuvants like aluminum hydroxide continuing to contribute to an epidemic of autoimmunity in immunized populations, including damage to the nervous system consistent with an explanation for vaccine-induced autism and related neurodevelopmental conditions.[9]

What this study shows is there was never a consensus on its safety, but rather smoke in mirrors generated in response to a signal of harm. And insofar as the CDC appears to have actively manipulated the results it uses as ‘evidence’ to support its hardline policies and increasingly obvious agenda of mandatory vaccination, we owe it to ourselves to continue to exercise extreme caution in defaulting to faith in ‘authority’ over the scientific evidence and commonsense itself.

CDC’s Vaccine Safety Research is Exposed as Flawed and Falsified in Peer-Reviewed Scientific Journal

Substantial Scientific Evidence Exists that Vaccine Ingredient is a Developmental Neurotoxin

WATCHUNG, N.J., June 13, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — Just months after U.S. Congressman Bill Posey compared the Center for Disease Control (CDC)’s vaccine safety studies to the SEC’s Bernie Madoff scandal, malfeasance in the CDC’s studies of thimerosal-containing vaccines has, for the first time, been documented in peer-reviewed scientific literature. While the CDC states on its website that “low doses of thimerosal in vaccines do not cause harm, and are only associated with minor local injection site reactions like redness and swelling at the injection site,” the journal BioMed Research International now provides direct evidence that the CDC’s safety assurances about the mercury-containing preservative are not fact-based, according to the article’s lead author, Brian Hooker, PhD.

The paper opens by citing over 165 studies that have found Thimerosal to be harmful, including 16 studies that had reported outcomes in human infants and children of death, acrodynia, poisoning, allergic reaction, malformations, auto-immune reaction, Well’s syndrome, developmental delay and neurodevelopmental disorders including tics, speech delay, language delay, ADHD and autism. These findings by multiple independent research groups over the past 75+ years have consistently found thimerosal to be harmful. “Substantial scientific evidence exists and has existed for many years that the vaccine ingredient thimerosal is a developmental neurotoxin” says George Lucier, former Associate Director of the National Toxicology Program.

Studies showing harm from thimerosal sharply contradict published outcomes of six CDC coauthored and sponsored papers – the very studies that CDC relies upon to declare that thimerosal is “safe” for use in infant and maternal vaccines. Dr. Hooker, biochemist and vaccine industry watchdog, said of the six CDC studies, “Each of these papers is fatally flawed from a statistics standpoint and several of the papers represent issues of scientific malfeasance. For example, important data showing a relationship between thimerosal exposure and autism are withheld from three of the publications (Price et al. 2010, Verstraeten et al. 2003 and Madsen et al. 2003). This type of cherry-picking of data by the CDC in order to change the results of important research studies to support flawed and dangerous vaccination policies should not be tolerated.”

Dr. Boyd Haley, international expert in mercury toxicity and a co-author of the recently published paper said “There is no doubt that authorities in the CDC have initiated and participated in a cover-up of vaccine-induced damage from thimerosal to our children—-and this I consider criminal.” The paper, “Methodological Issues and Evidence of Malfeasance in Research Purporting to Show Thimerosal in Vaccines is Safe,” was published on June 6 and contains eight pages of evidence that the CDC has had knowledge of the vaccine preservative’s neurological risks, yet continues to cover them up.

The paper concludes, “five of the publications examined in this review were directly commissioned by the CDC, raising the possible issue of conflict of interests or research bias, since vaccine promotion is a central mission of the CDC. Conceivably, if serious neurological disorders are found to be related to Thimerosal in vaccines, such findings could possibly be viewed as damaging to the vaccine program.”

Dr. Hooker has submitted over 100 FOIA requests to the CDC over the past 10 years and has amassed thousands of pages of documents showing malfeasance in the CDC’s vaccine safety program. Hooker revealed that one CDC document quoted a top official instructing CDC employees to “Review all correspondences and documents to see if there is ‘foreseeable harm’ to the agency if they were released” so the documents could be redacted by CDC attorneys prior to release.

Barry Segal, founder of the Focus Autism Foundation and former entrepreneur whose company sales peaked near $2 billion said, “We are in the process of exposing what may be the biggest federal scandal ever with immense damage to our economy and our people, especially our children who are the future of our country. Their health has been compromised by mercury in vaccines. We need Congress to take action now. Thimerosal must be banned.”

A more effective vaccine preservative “2PE” has replaced thimerosal in many other vaccines and possesses a much better safety profile according to Dr. Hooker.

University of BC Doctors Expose Vaccination Cover-up: Official Documents Released From The UK

Collective Evolution

Dr Chris Shaw, from the University of British Colombia’s (UBC)  Department of Ophthalmology, Visual Sciences, Experimental Medicine and Neuroscience published a paper in the Journal Inorganic Biochemistry along with his colleague, Dr.  Lucija Tomljenovic that revealed Government experts have known about the dangers associated with vaccinations. They investigated information exposing a 30 year scandal of official meetings by UK government vaccine committees and independent medical ‘experts’ with drug industry connections. The paper is at the bottom of the article under “sources”.

A Freedom of Information Act request filed with the CDC  seeking information on what the CDC knows about the dangers of vaccines, had by law to be responded to in 20 days. Nearly 7 years later a judge ordered the CDC to turn over the documents on September 30th, 2011. These documents were part of the study discussed in this article.

The paper has received a lot of attention. UBC even held a symposium about vaccination safety as a result in an effort to arouse more critical thinking and discussion around the topic. The response was disturbing  with a number of UBC professors upset that the discussion was taking place in the first place. It’s disturbing to know that there are those out there who wish to silence an opposition to vaccination, and not even keep an open mind to potential dangers. Much of the medical literature examined by researchers comes straight from pharmaceutical company-sponsored medical research. It’s time for us to wake up and make some obvious connections. Here is a quote from the published, peer reviewed paper.

Deliberately concealing information from parents for the sole purpose of getting them to comply with an “official” vaccination schedule could be considered as a form of ethical violation or misconduct. Official documents obtained from the UK Department of Health (DH) and the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) reveal that the British health authorities have been engaging in such practice for the last 30 years, apparently for the sole purpose of protecting the national vaccination program(1).

The documents reveal that vaccinations don’t work, and that they cause the disease they are supposed to prevent. They also indicate scientific fraud, that government ‘experts’ are working to conceal information. The 45 page paper was published in 2011 and presented at the BSEM scientific conference. (2)

Here I present the documentation which appears to show that the JCVI made continuous efforts to withhold critical data on severe adverse reactions and contraindications to vaccinations to both parents and health practitioners in order to reach overall vaccination rates which they deemed were necessary for “herd immunity”, a concept which with regards to vaccination, and contrary to prevalent beliefs, does not rest on solid scientific evidence as will be explained. As a result of such vaccination policy promoted by the JCVI and the DH, many children have been vaccinated without their parents being disclosed the critical information about demonstrated risks of serious adverse reactions, one that the JCVI appeared to have been fully aware of. It would also appear that, by withholding this information, the JCVI/DH neglected the right of individuals to make an informed consent concerning vaccination. By doing so, the JCVI/DH may have violated not only International Guidelines for Medical Ethics. –  Dr Lucija Tomljenovic.

She also mentions evidence of ties between vaccine manufacturers and pharmaceutical companies.

The transcripts of the JCVI meetings also show that some of the Committee members had extensive ties to pharmaceutical companies and that the JCVI frequently co-operated with vaccine manufacturers on strategies aimed at boosting vaccine uptake. Some of the meetings at which such controversial items were discussed were not intended to be publicly available, as the transcripts were only released later, through the Freedom of Information Act (FOI). These particular meetings are denoted in the transcripts as “commercial in confidence”, and reveal a clear and disturbing lack of transparency, as some of the information was removed from the text (i.e., the names of the participants) prior to transcript release under the FOI section at the JCVI website – Dr Lucija Tomljenovic.

The documents go on to show that when strong evidence was presented against vaccination, they were completely ignored and overlooked by the Joint Committee on Vaccinations and Immunizations. Furthermore, the committee has constantly dismissed independent research and downplayed vaccine concerns while over inflating the benefits. They’ve also promoted and elaborated a plan for introducing new vaccines of questionable efficacy and safety into the routine pediatric schedule, on the assumption that the licenses would eventually be granted. All of these violate the JCVI’s own code of conduct.

Alternative media outlets continue to raise awareness about vaccinations and their potential dangers. With the world handing over credibility to a certain criteria, we thank all of the researchers out there who continue to examine all information, and a wide variety of sources. With the work of these researchers and doctors, the truth about vaccinations continues to spread across the planet.

CDC False Statements On Swine H3N2v Matches Raise Concerns

Recombinomics


“Human infections with an influenza A (H3N2) variant (H3N2v) virus that contains the M gene from the influenza A(H1N1)pdm09 virus (2009 H1N1 pandemic virus) were first detected in 2011. Notably, a large increase in cases of H3N2v virus infection has been identified since July 2012. (This virus has been circulating among pigs in the U.S. since 2011, has been detected in pigs in many states, and appears to be circulating widely in swine in the U.S.)”

The above comments from the CDC H3N2v August 10, 2012 update for physicians are false. The H3N2v that has increased in humans since July 2012 has not been circulating in many states and data supporting wide circulation is clearly lacking. The July 2012 H3N2v sequences from cases matches the earlier sequences from Utah in March, as well as the West Virginia cases in November and December, 2011. The H3N2v detected in many states has not been reported in a human since November, 2011.

The CDC claims represent pseudoscience and raise serious concerns about the CDC’s abiity to analyze its own data. Moreover, false statements, such as those in the physician’s update are accepted as evidence that the latest H3N2v cases are due to H3N2 jumping from swine to humans, even though the swine distribution supports the jumping of H3N2v from humans to swine.

The H3N2v detected in the initial human cases has not been identified in any swine isolate collected prior to the first human case in July 2011. A recent Journal of Virology paper, “The evolution of novel reassortant A/H3N2v influenza virus in North American swine and humans, 2009-2011”, described 674 MP sequences from swine collections from 2009-2010, as well as 388 HA and NA sequences from these isolates. The extensive survey of USDA public sequences as well as a large series generated by the authors of the paper, identified one match with the H3N2v identified in the first 10 human cases in 2011. This isolate, A/swine/NY/A01104005/2011, was from a September 17, 2011 and was initially noted in November, 2011.

More recently released sequences identified additional matches. However, the earliest matches, A/swine/Iowa/A01202529/2011 and A/swine/Iowa/A01202530/2011, were collected on August 22, 2011 which followed the first human case, A/Indiana/08/2011, which was from July, 2011.

Thus, the extensive USDA surveillance failed to identify any examples of the matching H3N2v in swine prior to the first human case.

Subsequent sequences identified a total of 24 swine isolates from 6 states (Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, New York, Ohio, and Texas) which matched (based on HA, NA, MP sequences) the H3N2v from the first 10 human cases. However none of the 2012 human H3N2v cases, including the sequences from July collections from four outbreaks in three states (Hawaii, Indiana, Ohio), matched the constellation in the 24 swine isolates above (or the first 10 reported human cases in 2011). The July, 2012 H3N2v sequences matched a novel constellation (with an N2 from H3N2 swine), first identified in a large human cluster in at a West Virginia day care center, where the confirmed cases had no swine contact or exposure.

This novel sub-clade has only been identified in two swine isolates from samples collected prior to the July, 2012 cases. These two isolates, A/swine/North Carolina/A01203272/2012 and A/swine/Indiana/A01203509/2012, were collected in 2012, well after the West Virginia cluster from November and December cases.

The absence of any human 2012 cases which match the swine sequences described by the CDC cast serious doubt on the CDC position of swine H3N2 jumps to humans are a major cause of human cases, and instead supports the jump of human H3N2v into swine, leading to widespread detections in swine that follow novel constellations or sequences in humans.

Thus, the false statements by the CDC to physicians and the media continues to raise pandemic concerns and highlights the need for an independent investigation into the ability of the CDC to analyze its sequence data and convey those results to decision makers and the public.
