MMR, all the harmy goodness, none of the perks.

I don’t watch the news much.
I do prefer my dramas scripted, but not the ones that pretend to be true. So I missed out on all this Mumps nonsense. I caught a whiff of it in my Facebook newsfeed.

Why the NHL lost control of its mumps outbreak.
The highlights:

“As far as I know, everybody received the immunization when they were young.”

“Throwing a wrench into all of this is that some players with the disease recently did receive a booster. ”

“That’s because the optimal level of antibody to protect from the virus is unknown.”

And this nugget:

“The takeaway here is that the mumps vaccine works, we just don’t know how long it works.”

Let me share something here that I posted on FB today:

I had an MMR vaccine as a kid, #1. I had an MMR vaccine when I went to basic training in 93, #2. In 95 they did my titers. Not immune. I had another MMR in 95, #3. (Unfortunately, 2 months before getting pregnant with my future autistic child. There was a small case study that showed it’s more common for women who had the MMR shortly before getting pregnant, or right after while breast feeding, to have kids who regressed into autism when THE kids had their MMR). I had titers done again for a job in 99. Not immune. I told them to go to hell with their vaccine.

How long it works? Well for me, I can tell you it didn’t even hold for two years.

I saw some arguments on Facebook from friends of friends, blaming the hypothetical unvaccinated child for traveling abroad and bringing measles or mumps home, and spreading them to a classmate with cancer who then dies.

Well, shit. That would be awful. But they are operating under the false notion that vaccines are effective.

spoiler

They’re not. We’re swimming in the proof.

Your fully vaccinated child is no more protected than my unvaccinated child.

And let’s not forget that two Merck scientists turned whistle blowers and are taking Merck to court to show that Merck flat out LIED about the effectiveness of the Mumps vaccine. Merck is being sued for fraud. If found guilty, I’m sure the fine they receive will come back to them in insane profits anyway –I bet they are orgasmic over this outbreak of Mumps and all the talk that maybe we need yearly boosters along with our flu shots.

Are you that dumb?

Why can’t most people understand that a vaccine comes with a list of ‘cons’ and risks just like any pill you’d put in your mouth? Why are most people, who are so critical of the government in every other aspect of life, so willing to give them a pass on the vaccine issue?
Check yourself.

Through my research, I would say that a vaccine that offers LIFE LONG immunity for any disease isn’t worth the risk to me and mine. And you want me to take that risk every year?

Why do you think vaccines are safe when an extremely-hard-to-win-at vaccine court has paid out 3 BILLION in damages since its creation 26 years ago?

I still can’t understand those people who plant their flag in “perfectly safe” land when the manufacturers themselves know they aren’t safe, and sought protection from liability. When officials have called them “unavoidably unsafe.” –under the idea that we need herd immunity –yet… We don’t have herd immunity. It’s a myth.

And have you forgotten about the #CDCWhistleBlower? You know… that top CDC scientist, William Thompson, who told everyone where to look for the omitted data in fraudulent CDC studies that would have showed an association between MMR and autism? The story you refuse to educate yourselves about because you haven’t seen it discussed in the mainstream media, yet?

Vaccines are not effective.
Vaccines can kill you.
Vaccines can maim you.

Educate yourselves.

You ignorant, servile scum!

What were you thinking? Dragging our asses half way around the world, interrupting our lives… For what?  You ignorant, servile scum! What the fuck are we doing here?

This was an old blog. Full of ranting and screaming.
And somewhere in the middle of it is a bit of good writing –or… at least the pieces of what could be good writing. But… “That’s enough, Webster. Give it a rest.”

I am deleting a LOT. You are welcome. Just saving some snippets… so if it doesn’t flow easy, just remember that I deleted a lot of ALL CAP CURSING:

On a recent re-watch of Band of Brothers, when Webster spoke, it hit me a different way.  My mind went to autism immediately as I pondered, “What the fuck are were doing here?” I DO feel like my ass was dragged half way around the world –a life interrupted –and for what? Ego and Profit. What. The FUCK. Are we DOING here?

When I had a child in 1996 it never even occurred to me that I should question the doctors that were caring for me and my newborn.  They were my coworkers.  I was just sure they had my best interests in mind and that they had the best training and experience that they could possibly have.

But, this is 2011. People like me are shoving the vaccine debate in your face on a daily basis. We are screaming… SCREAMING that autism is a MEDICAL disorder. We are posting study after study that support the link between vaccines and autism. We are talking –you are ignoring.

Vaccines are SUPPOSED to be a matter of RISK vs. BENEFIT.  LIKE ALL MEDICINES they carry a risk of severe injury up to and including DEATH.  THEREFORE the THING you are fighting ought to have a higher risk of such an outcome.
Chicken Pox, Measles, Mumps… are not deadly.  They are pains in the ass… but not deadly.
There is a difference between DEADLY disease and child hood illnesses.

Group Think –it’s nothing to be PROUD OF.

Somewhere along the way, while the humans were choosing to remain passive, uninformed morons… the vaccine manufactures who makes BILLIONS upon BILLIONS from vaccines took advantage OF our ignorance and pushed through one of the MOST successful advertising, PR campaigns in MOTHER FUCKING HISTORY –next to Hitler’s that is…

Have YOU PEOPLE noticed something?? Did you notice that ONE generation ago, we all got about 8 shots and NO ONE in this country died from MASSIVE disease epidemics?  HAVE YOU bothered to notice that kids now get 36 shots before they are 18 months old?  51 by age 5?? Have you noticed that chronic illness now DEFINES us??

How much is too much people? When does the fucking light bulb go off over your heads?? WHAT does it TAKE for you to look up from the herd and say, “What the fuck?? This is OUT OF CONTROL!”

I rather be shot by Jim Jones than forced to drink his Kool-aide. That’s just how I roll.

What the fuck are we doing here?

THIS IS 2011. NOW, TODAY! Your inaction –your refusal to educate yourselves –your refusal to break free from the group-thinking herd is KILLING children.

In the Army we were taught that it is OK to refuse unlawful orders. See, even the US Army says it’s ok to contemplate whether or not your orders are moral and legal. Is THAT basic HUMAN instinct bred out of the vast majority?

It is TIME to stop taking someone’s word for it! It is TIME to STOP thinking that vaccines are mandatory and that they are safe and effective –just because someone told you so.  It’s time to stop listening to ASSHATS like Paul Offit and the Mainstream Media without doing the research and reading and thinking for YOURSELF.

When we finally admit what causes autism… we CAN stop it.
When we finally admit what autism IS…. We can treat it and for some, even recover their kids.

Hey You! Hey You! That’s right… you STUPID American Idiots…. That’s right… Say HELLO to the Autism Warrior Mothers and Fathers!  You stupid Pharma Whores! Look at you!!! You have fraudulent studies!! What were you thinking? Dragging our asses half way around the world, interrupting our lives… For what?  You ignorant, servile scum! What the fuck are we doing here?

Oh, Japan! What are you thinking!

Letting all your babies live and shit!
nerve

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!

infantmortalitycnn

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.

spoiler
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:
japanproblem

“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.

l-Confused-kitten

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.

greed-money

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)

Finland delivers 1/3 the vaccines we do by age 6 (11 vs. 33). Our autism rate 1:68. Finland 1:186

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24359461
http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/parents/downloads/parent-ver-sch-0-6yrs.pdf

Only 30%-40% of Somalian children are vaccinated against 6 childhood diseases. They have no word for Autism. If Somalian parents have a baby in the US (large refugee population in Minneapolis), 1 in 32 of them have Autism.
http://www.nytimes.com/2013/12/17/health/study-links-autism-and-somalis-in-minneapolis.html

Being black may make you more susceptible to vaccine-induced autism. Ugandan refugees’ babies born in Sweden have 200 times the rate of autism that Swedes do. (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/7787384)

Sweden gives 15 vaccinations before the age of six. Their autism rate is 1 in 125.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22048962

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.

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.”]

Listen, all y’all! It’s a Sabotage!

Troll Food, ’cause random strangers know your kid better than you do.

[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:

fym

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.

Breakfast:

I woke up to this tweet this morning:

tweet
With my reply. Enjoy the typo. Hadn’t even had my morning coffee. if* not is, of course.


It doesn’t even matter to you trolling idiots that William Thompson actually admitted manipulating data to hide the MMR/Autism link in a press release through his lawyer. A lawyer who specializes in whistle blower cases.
fraud

First off, who says Snopes is the end-all of fucking everything?
Read this.
And “The Mikkelsons admit, however, that Snopes is only as reliable as the sources it cites, and they invite readers to look for the truth themselves.”
When you people use Snopes as  your argument you just prove our point –Most Americans are lazy and can’t be bothered to read for themselves.

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.)

Lunch:
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:

tweetdouche
Here is the photo I posted, you’ve seen it before:
beforeafter

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:
beforeaftermmr

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.

Dinner:

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.

SNACKS:

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:

HINT: The current vaccine schedule has NEVER been tested.

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:

Enjoy:

Meet the Douchebags, Julie Gerberding. aka Cruella de Vil

“I lie for profit. Fuck your stupid kids, anyway” –not an actual quote, but pretty sure she’s thought it.

Every time I see a photo of her smiling… I just want to smack the smile right off her face.

So who’s Julie?

She’s the former director of the CDC!

“Dr. Gerberding led the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as director from 2002 to 2009. During her tenure at CDC, Dr. Gerberding led the agency during more than 40 emergency response initiatives for health crises including anthrax bioterrorism, food-borne disease outbreaks, and natural disasters, and advised governments around the world on urgent public health issues such as SARS, AIDS, and obesity.”

Funny… because the autism epidemic was hitting the fan hard then and she did absolutely nothing to address that during her tenure –um… well, unless you count making sure more kids became autistic from adding more and more vaccines to the schedule. Vaccines that she knew were linked with a raise in autism risk.

Then there was the Hannah Poling case.  The govt compensated the family without really debating the evidence. They “conceded” the case.  Her dad is a neurologist and had his ducks in a row and the govt knew they’d lose, and it would open the flood gates if they ruled on the evidence –so they quietly and quickly settled. The CDC tried to spin it by saying Hannah had a rare underlying mitochondrial disorder.

“But there are circumstances that make Hannah’s case a bit unusual. For one thing, she received an unusually large number of vaccines in 2000 (when thimerosal was still in use). Because of a series of ear infections, Hannah had fallen behind in the vaccine schedule, so in a single day she was given five inoculations covering a total of nine diseases: measles, mumps, rubella, polio, varicella, diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus, and Haemophilus influenzae.”

First, getting the MMR, DTaP and Hib in one day is common place. That is bad, it’s too many…. But not an “unusually large number”. Kids often get more than that in one day.  And in 2000 that was common. My kid got the same amount of mercury, in the same ‘unusual’ doses as Hannah. They all did back then.
Also, notice the ear infection bit? Yeah. ALL OUR KIDS HAVE THE SAME EFFIN MEDICAL HISTORY LEADING UP TO THIS MMR REGRESSION. Ask any autism mom. Reflux, eczema, allergies, chronic ear infections –all gut/immune/neuro issues. *RED FLAG*

So onto that “rare mito disorder”

Another confounding issue in Hannah’s case is the finding that she suffers from a mitochondrial disorder — a dysfunction in basic cell metabolism.

Haaaaaaaaaaaave you met MTHFR?

The one doctor in the Time article is puzzled?  If you’re puzzled you aren’t paying attention. Our kids are full of genetic flaws that mess up many of the basic cellular metabolic processes.  They can’t detox. They can’t handle heavy metals. They can’t get the same nutrition from the same food a non-MTHFR person can. OR if they can, they can’t process it right.
(Side note: My youngest child has worse MTHFR and DETOX profile mutations than his autistic brother. But he doesn’t have autism. The difference? I didn’t vaccinate my youngest. He’s 10. And still alive. And healthy. LIKE…. CRAZY HEALTHY. LIKE……. ‘UNLIKE any vaccinated child’ healthy. Liiike ‘has an actual, working immune system’ healthy. Liiiiiiiiiiike ‘we all got swine flu in ’09 and Gavin and I were in bed, sick as hell for 8 days and the unvaccinated child, who was 5, was sick for 2 days’ healthy.)

MTHFR is not uncommon at all in kids with autism. Cell metabolism disorders are COMMON in all kids with autism.
But JULIE goes on CNN to give it the “rare” spin. And by the way, at this point she is fully aware that we all call her Cruella.

You can clearly see why... ;)
You can clearly see why… 😉

The first thing I noticed when she went on CNN was how soft and pretty she looked that day.  She dyed her hair to even out the grey, got a cut, wore a pink suit and spoke softly (keep in mind, as she is saying this shit she knew full well of the cover up inside the CDC over the MMR/Autism link.)

Pretty in Pink

Before you watch the video below you need to understand that “autism” is NOT a THING in and of itself. It is a collection of symptoms. If you have the symptoms… you HAVE autism.
In this case they started saying the phrase “autism-like symptoms” as spin.  They were actually saying that the vaccines didn’t cause autism, they caused a fever…. which caused autism-like symptoms. Chew on that a minute.

–I’ll stop with my commentary because the video does a nice job of tossing up everything I would say in rebuttal. It’s ten minutes, but I think you can spare it.

And I say again… NOW WE KNOW that she was just flat out lying during this interview.

So where did Julie go in 2009 after leaving the CDC?

Crazy, right?
Crazy, right?

Yep, she took a job as President of the Vaccine Division at Merck –the same company that makes the MMR vaccine, and MOST of the vaccines for kids and adults, that are on the CDC recommended vaccine schedule. Read this vomit about her too.

So, in summary, Julie KNEW MMR was linked to autism (The whistle blower, William Thompson, sent her a memo about coming clean before the 2004 IOM meeting on the issue). There is no way she didn’t know that cellular metabolism disorders were common in kids with autism. She lied for money. She didn’t give a shit about your kids and now she collects a fat paycheck, working for the company she lied to protect while working as a public servant, on your tax dime, under the guise of pubic health.
Julie, congrats on being my FIRST Featured Profile on “Meet the Douchebags”.
I look forward to her ass being sent to prison… and gosh, she’s so pretty… she’ll make someone a nice bitch, won’t she?
