I have had many discussions with Dr. Brian Hooker over the last 10 months regarding studies the CDC has carried out regarding vaccines and neurodevelopmental outcomes including autism spectrum disorders. I share his belief that CDC decision-making and analyses should be transparent. I was not, however, aware that he was recording any of our conversations, nor was I given any choice regarding whether my name would be made public or my voice would be put on the Internet.
He admitted that it’s his voice in those audios. In no statement has he said that his words were taken out of context, nor does he claim that Brian is editing his statements in any false or manipulative fashion. Instead, he owns his comments. Comments where he expresses regret, remorse, puts forth the biological plausibility of thimerosal causing tics (which is common in autism), says he wouldn’t let his pregnant wife get a thimerosal containing shot, talks of omitting statistically significant data in MORE THAN ONE STUDY, NOT JUST in black babies… etc.
Being recorded without your knowledge doesn’t make your comments ‘out of context” or any less true.
The hash tag itself.
I’m a bit peeved over this one. When we, those who want justice for our vaccine injured kids and want susceptible populations identified, open our mouths –we have to be fully informed on a situation because the opposition, those who don’t give a shit about susceptible kids and deny my child’s brain damage even though they’ve never met him, will latch onto any misstep and use it against us.
I am a peeved, because on August 18th I took to twitter using #CDCWhistleBlower –firsties. My Bad. I used that tag because the information was put out to us that we had a whistle blower. Yes, he’s since gone forward and hired a whistle blower attorney… but on Aug 18th, he was not a Whistle Blower. He was a top CDC scientist who did a bad, bad thing and in an effort to sleep at night, confessed to Brian Hooker. I wish the headline would have been “CDC Scientists Admits Fraud” It would have been one less thing to use against this campaign. But it’s out there now. Whatever.
However, no matter what Thompson ended up “being”, doesn’t make his statements any less true.
Vaccine Injury is real. Just because you can’t read, don’t understand anatomy/physiology/biochemistry AND you are a #DoochBag doesn’t make that any less true.
5. Vaccines don’t cause autism. It’s been proven.
a. There has not been ONE STUDY that looks at vaccinated vs. unvaccinated kids. First they claimed it was unethical to do so, to ask some to skip vaccines. We pointed out that there are plenty of us who don’t and a record review could be done, ethically. The CDC then fired back saying the results wouldn’t give us the full story because parents who don’t vaccinate are also likely to do other things, like eat organic. Well, guess what, my 10 year old could figure out a way to design this study in about 30 minutes. GET IT DONE.
Your refusal to do a study, doesn’t mean it’s been done.
b. Vaccines are not studied against placebos. They are looked at for safety vs. other vaccines ‘accepted as safe’. Again, they throw the “unethical” argument at us. “Since vaccines are KNOWN to be safe and effective, it’s unethical to give a control group a placebo and keep them away from life saving vaccines!” *eye brow up*
This is like testing Coke’s affect on blood sugar by comparing it to Pepsi, and then calling it safe for diabetics to drink because Pepsi said they are ‘accepted as safe’ for diabetics, and the effect on people between Coke and Pepsi was the same. Yeah. Stupid.
Your refusal to do a proper study, doesn’t mean it’s been done.
c. There has been no study looking at the WHOLE schedule as it is given. One 800 mg Motrin, Meh. Eight at once…. not so Meh. Quantity matters. We should look at that.
Your refusal to study the sum effect of the mass vaccination program, doesn’t mean it’s been done.
6. Well, my kid got vaccines and is fine!
Awesome! I am very happy for you. Mine isn’t.
My child with vaccine induced brain damage grew up along side my friend’s boy, who is typical, getting most of their shots from the same lots. My friend and I were pregnant at the same time. We ate the same, lived in the same environment, did most things together. The difference between Gavin and my friends boy? DNA. I believe in a genetic component to autism. But there is no such thing as a genetic epidemic. GENES are NOT your destiny. Genes MUST BE turned off and on. Mutations cause one body to not function properly where another will.
Thousands of us watched our kids regress and get ill immediately after vaccination. This is a HUGE collection of anecdotal evidence that deserves PROPER study, AND IS, by the way, the first step in the scientific method. Observation.
Just because something didn’t happen to YOU, doesn’t mean it can’t happen to ME.
Vaccine injury is REAL. SOME KIDS are regressing and becoming very medically ill after shots. Shouldn’t we care to find out why? The CDC’s omissions and lies have cost us 15 years of trying to figure out WHY.
EVEN if it’s not vaccines (it is), it is SOMETHING (vaccines), and we owe it to the human race to study it and figure out.
Want to keep your vaccine program intact and keep your herd immunity (which is a myth)? Find out which kids are susceptible. Start with looking at kids with methylation cycle SNPs. THESE ARE VERY COMMON IN AUTISM! Our kids aren’t making energy properly. They are not breaking down and processing nutrients properly. They are not detoxing properly. And before you try to say that that is the answer alone, again: genes need to be triggered, and I know plenty of siblings with mutations and NO autism (they were NOT VACCINATED).
JUST because you don’t understand something, doesn’t mean other people don’t.
7. You don’t know Autism. Autism is the sum of it’s parts.
I say again… “Autism” is NOT one thing. This might be why it’s so hard for the average person to understand that vaccines can cause autism.
It IS biologically plausible.
Autism is a label, that is slapped on a box, that contains a list of “features or symptoms”
Those “features” (like tics, for example, which CDC Scientist William Thompson believes and states are linked to thimerosal exposure, also saying, ““There is biologic plausibility right now to say that thimerosal causes autism-like features.”) and symptoms ARE found on the table of injuries that ARE compensatable vaccine injuries under the NVICP.
Speech and Language issues? Hey! I went to college for that! I remember one class discussion about apraxia in kids. The professor said it’s controversial because, in adults, apraxia is caused by brain injury… and when it presents in kids there is no brain injury.
Vaccines cause encephalopathies. This is a well know, admitted and compensatable vaccine induced BRAIN injury. Hello?
Your ignorance as to what autism is, and what the symptoms and features are and how they may, biologically, be induced… does not make the vaccine/autism link untrue.
Your refusal to learn the facts, read for yourself, and stop and think doesn’t make any of the following less true:
1. Thompson admitted to Brain Hooker, on audio tape, to omitting data linking an increase in autism to black boys who get an MMR shot before 36 months. That studies on tics and thimerosal were altered. That studies showing MMR was linked to “isolated autism” were altered to water down the results… [something they’ve done before, information we’ve known about for years! (thimerosal, Verstraeten, Simpsonwood –Read RFK Jrs work on this)]
These are three examples that we know of so far. Congressman Posey’s office is currently wading through a crap ton of documents turned over to them from CDC SCIENTIST WILLIAM THOMPSON.
2. Autism is a collection of symptoms that are known vaccines injuries.
3. There are OBVIOUSLY children who are predisposed to vaccine injury and we, as a society of human beings ought to find out who they are and why.
4. That a court case is going forward right now with TWO internal REAL Honest-to-Goodness Whistle Blowers from inside Merck, suing Merck over lies they told about the efficacy of their MMR vaccines.
6. There are a LOT of people out there who stand to lose a LOT of money AND go to jail (I’m looking at you Coleen 😉 Julie 😉 ) when the truth about vaccines comes out. I have to wonder why the average American is so willing to put their child’s health up on the alter to be sacrificed for those people.
I was working on crunching some numbers for my special video dedication to that Douche Bag, Elizabeth Cohen at CNN, when a little something caught my eye.
I was specifically looking at infant mortality rates because of something she tossed out to dazzle us. Her reason WHY vaccines are so great –she called this number “stunning”. Vaccines are a “HUGE reason” for this. HUGE she said, with emphasis!
Holy SHIT! Vaccines saved 93 babies per 1000! Er wait… what? 1900? How about 1985 which was before we really started ramping up the vaccine schedule? Oh, 10.6? …Wow. I am really really stunned, Elizabeth. /sarcasm
I was poking around the Google and found this study which shows the relationship between infant mortality and the number of vaccines that kids get before age one, by country.
The more they get, the more they die.
Then I started to poke around in the various countries themselves, through the tubes of the interwebs and UP POPS this headline:
“This is especially a problem in a country that is slow to add new vaccines and has an immunization schedule that resembles the 1983 immunization schedule from the CDC, with kids only getting DTaP, OPV, Measles and Rubella (2 doses), DT (11 Years).”
Those fuckers! (by the way, when Autism rates were 1 in 150 here in the USA, they were 1 in 475 in Japan –ours being 3.2 times worse than theirs*) ok…. SO…. What is Japan’s Infant mortality rate, considering how careless they are with their vaccine recommendations? 2.17 per 1000. Ranked #2 for allowing their babies to live.
If vaccines are supposed to make us healthier, how come a country with a vaccine “problem” — a country that gives HALF the number of vaccines to their Under-1 set THAN WE DO here in the USA, loses less than half the babies we do? From that 2011 study, using 2009 data: Japan gives 12 vaccines in the first year, 2.79 per 1,000 die. USA gives 26 vaccines in the first year, 6.22 per 1,000 die.
Yeah. What a fucking problem. OK, sure… I know what you are thinking…. Their kids probably die in Kindergarten from Chicken Pox! Japan life expectancy 81.25 years USA 78.74.
Try again. Japan doesn’t have a problem. The vaccine manufacturers have a profit problem.
Oh and, we have more babies die in the first 24 hours than any other industrialized nation. Couldn’t possibly be the flu shots full of mercury that mom got while pregnant and the Hep B on the first day of little Johnny’s life. Nah. I am sure that is a coincidence. It’s ALL a coincidence.
After all… say it with me now, “Vaccines are the leading cause of coincidence in this country!”
[*The other countries who do a great job at allowing their babies to live, give the same amount of vaccines as Japan, but had even BETTER autism rates. Our kids had anywhere from a 5.7 to 14.6 higher chance of getting autism than in Nordic countries. I can speculate as to why Japan’s autism rate is not as good as theirs –it would involve the legacy of Minamata, mercury contamination in fish, etc.]
[Editing to add some info my friend, David Anderson, posted on Facebook this morning:
Did you know… (and do PLEASE note the total lack of tin foil in my sourcing)
The “Danish Study” establishing no-link between Autism and Vaccines conducted by Danish national Poul Thorsen and his MMR safety study are the reason you think vaccines don’t cause autism. He was indicted by a federal judge in Atlanta 3 years ago for fraud: he embezzled $2M of CDC funds that were supposed to fund his research. He remains at large. (http://oig.hhs.gov/fraud/fugitives/profiles.asp) <—scroll down
And, if you did your own homework, you would see that the rising rates of Autism for the past THIRTY years are in lock step with increases to our own vaccine schedule.”]
[Be sure to watch the video at the end. We all need to keep laughing. It’s important. We’d lose our minds otherwise.]
I know we really shouldn’t feed the trolls, but frankly I felt like I needed a link to post to them instead of my usual image which is:
So why not feed them a little knowledge. Not sure it’s possible with these idiots, but if I save one moron… well… Then there is only about 7 billion more to go.
Since you all appear to be too fucking lazy to read the press release, allow me to copy and paste for you.
“I regret that my coauthors and I omitted statistically significant information in our 2004 article published in the journal Pediatrics. The omitted data suggested that African American males who received the MMR vaccine before age 36 months were at increased risk for autism. Decisions were made regarding which findings to report after the data were collected, and I believe that the final study protocol was not followed.”
Is that simple enough for you? Hey Snopes, It’s NOT “Probably False” anymore. [Update: Now listed as ‘mixed’ on Snopes. Of course it’s funny that the ‘mix’ comes from them quoting that douche on ‘Science Blogs’ *eye roll*]
[Second UPDATE: It now reads FALSE. WTF are they smoking? –Read this iReport about it]
Wrap your head around the fact that his lawyer ALLOWED him to SAY that. While the Press Release does reek of ‘lawyered-up’ you have to see it for what it is –for what his lawyer actually allowed to be said. You realize what lawyers do right? Trust me, I once went to law school for a whole year and then dropped out. (Thanks Autism! –and trust me, you learn everything in the first year. The last two are just hazing and profit.)
I posted this picture to Anderson Cooper with a message that this was a Before and After MMR photo. To LOOK into my sons eyes. I get this reply:
Here is the photo I posted, you’ve seen it before:
Ok, twatrocket, let me explain something to you… 1. I know my kid is beautiful. He has my genes. I’m fucking smoking hot. Thanks. But, since you are not being sincere and mean this as a troll, I shall explain some more.
2. If you can’t see the OBVIOUS neurological deficits in this picture, let me break it down for you –as a portrait photographer (Yes, I’ve done every job at least once.) Every kid can have a bad day. But I could always get a kid to smile. Even my toughest customers. I once did a hand stand while making ape noises to get a kid to smile.
That picture on the left is my son at 15 months. He was an easy smile’r. A couple days after that first photo he got his MMR and DTaP, we injected him with neurotoxins. The second photo was taken at 18 months of age. We worked hard just to get him to look at the camera. Just to look at us. He was more interested in that block in his hand. The block he kept flipping over and over and staring at. Hand stand, ape noises… Cookies as bribes… lots of tears. And that blank stare was the best one we got.
I looked over a lot of my snap shots from this time period. Before and After. Before? Lots of happy smiles and eye contact with the camera. AFTER? ALWAYS. ALWAYS the same fucking pose. The thumb in his mouth –he’d hook his thumb behind his front teeth to put pressure on the roof of his mouth. He wasn’t actually sucking his thumb. It’s a soothing pressure point. And he’d rub his nose with his finger. Again, soothing. Instinctual. At 18 he still does it. Often when we are out in public and the sensory stimulation is too much.
I put together a little collage last night:
Yes, his downward spiral began with the Hep B at birth. But he was still THERE. He still had language. He’d still look you in the eye and smile, respond to you. But for a couple months after his 15 month shots, that bottom row… All the photos of him look the same. That is not an energetic, happy toddler. That is a sick child. Lacking energy, lacking language, lacking any sort of connection to his environment. That is a child suffering from an acute insult to his body and brain. Line this up with his MTHFR gene mutations and it all makes perfect sense. Google it trolls, I am not doing any more fucking homework for you.
I have videos too. They are too hard to watch. Before and After. Maybe someday.
I am college educated with a genius IQ (just bragging). I am not an idiot. (Don’t let my typo’s fool you). But they duped me. They did. [Yes, I know typo’s is a typo. It’s funny. Trust me.]
I am one of the most skeptical people in the world. Yet, I can admit, I was once brain washed by the Church of Science. I believed what Doctors told me, because they went to school after all. I was you–the mere “Useful Idiot Troll”. I believed that the CDC and FDA really did work for the people. But then I decided to read for myself instead of believing what authority figures told me. Guess what? They work for profit, not for the people. Vaccines do injure. More than the 1-in-a-million that they love to throw at you. It’s biologically plausible and probable. It’s OK that you were duped. It happens. Please read a book or two on your own. Now, if you are a troll-for-hire getting paid to do this… well… I refer you to the first photo in this post.
If you are waiting for the mainstream media to cover this, like one person told me, then you really have no idea how this world works. Hint: Money.
The information is out there for you. Just waiting to be read. You DON’T need some pretty face behind a news desk to tell you what to believe.
For those of you who look at a photo of my child and tell me “what’s what” –tell me that I don’t know what happened to my own child. Even though MEDICAL doctors have since looked over his records and told me that YES, he most likely DID suffer encephalitis with his first Hep B. Those of you who STILL want to tell me that you know my child better than I do, better than his doctors do:
And the rest of you…
–‘Vaccines don’t cause Autism, they took the mercury out of the MMR! And besides Dr. Wakefield lied!’
–‘Vaccines don’t cause autism, they studied that and they are safe.’
And as a general ‘last word’ to any other fucking stupid thing you manage to say… (I actually saw one write, “If this proves to be true, those crazy anti-vaxxers will have to admit that this study means it only related to an increase in black boys and not everyone.” *facepalm* DO THEY LISTEN TO THEMSELVES??) Anyway, in general:
