History Tells It All…
by Elissa Meininger – Health Policy Analyst
Very early in life I realized the value of studying the history of things. In the 1980s, when I was so ill with mercury poisoning, mostly from my dental fillings on top of earlier vaccine injury, fate introduced me to Harris Coulter, PhD, who is considered one of the great historians specializing in the evolution of Western medicine from ancient times to the present day. I am blessed with having known him and I want to bring the work he has done related to the dangers of vaccinations to a new audience.
Dr. Coulter is considered a major expert on the subject of vaccines having written three books on the subject. He co-wrote, with Barbara Loe Fisher, DPT – A Shot in the Dark. This book was the first book published about the problems with vaccines and was published prior to the passage of National Childhood Vaccination Compensation Law in 1986. The vaccine court that was created by the law was supposed to compensate victims of vaccine damage and let the drug industry off the hook.
A point to ponder, when DPT A Shot in the Dark was published in 1985, on the eve of the passage of the National Childhood Vaccination Compensation Law, Dr. Coulter and Fisher estimated that at least 1000 babies died and 12,000 were damaged per year just by the DPT (diphtheria-pertussis-tetanus) shot.
Fisher went on to found the National Vaccine Information Center which is the principle consumer watchdog group regarding the dangers of vaccines. According to her now:
The $3.6 billion dollars in federal vaccine injury compensation that has been awarded to more than 5,000 vaccine victims since 1988 doesn’t begin to pay for the damage done, not when two out of three claims are denied, 50 and not when drug companies have no incentive to make vaccines less harmful because all Americans are legally required to purchase and use their liability free vaccine products.
Every promise that Congress made to parents in 1986 was a lie. And 30 years is long enough for parents to wait for that failed experiment in tort reform to work.
Meanwhile, Dr. Coulter testified at various hearings in Washington since then and he was also the one who made the connection that it was the Thimerisol (mercury) in the vaccines that was the cause of autism.
In 1990, Dr. Coulter published his book, Vaccination Social Violence and Criminality – The Medical Assault on the American Brain. The great thing about studying the history of something is that history is clear cut. Either it happened or it didn’t and usually the stuff you find out is a matter of public record not as likely to be altered in later publications for political purposes as we have found is the case with current corrupt scientific studies about vaccines. Better yet, with the distance of time, one can see patterns emerge that give clarity to events, which, at the time, made no sense.
With President Trump’s directive to Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., to get to the bottom of all the vaccine science corruption, Dr. Coulter’s work in this particular book is critically important because it traces the decline in brain function (like IQ, ability to study, make reasoned decisions and take aptitude tests) of several generations of children thanks to the damage done by America’s ever-growing vaccine schedule. It also traces the dramatic rise in the crime rate during the same period of time. These trends are alarming, particularly because this book came out before so many vaccines were added to the schedule in the 1990s and beyond.
In the simplest terms, by tracing trends in crime, behavior and intellectual performance, Dr. Coulter provides a frightening future for American civilization if all our vaccination policy is doing is creating more and more dysfunctional people.
An Overview Of Escalating Mental Disorders…
Back in the 1980s, the American Psychiatric Association, in its official guide to mental illnesses in the US, devoted 70 pages to “Disorders Usually First Evident in Infancy, Childhood, or Adolescence”. Dr. Coulter pointed out that in an earlier edition published in 1968, only had 3 1/2 pages and the first edition, published in 1952, did not mention them at all.
Encephalitis is the culprit…
On page xiv, Dr. Coulter stated:
The following pages show that “developmental disabilities” are nearly always generated by encephalitis. And the primary cause of encephalitis in the United States and other industrialized countries is the childhood vaccination program.
To be specific, a large portion of the millions of U.S. children and adults suffering from autism, seizures, mental retardation, hyperactivity, dyslexia, and other shoots and branches of the hydra-headed entity called “developmental disabilities,” owe their disorders to one or another of the vaccines against childhood diseases.
The so-called “sociopathic personality,” which is at the root of the enormous increase in crime of the past two decades, is also largely rooted in vaccine damage.
Thus the nation’s vaccination program has served to undermine the American school system–which is in collapse through inability to cope with the one-fifth or one-quarter of students who will never be able either to read or to perform simple arithmetical calculations.
And it has contributed to the wave of violent crime which is turning our cities into jungles where the strong and the vicious prey upon the weak and unprotected.
The effects of vaccination have altered the very tone and atmosphere of modern society. Because the changes are so insidious and widespread, and because we lack perspective, they have been largely overlooked. It is not easy to discern the outlines of the incubus which the vaccination program as loosed upon us.
Every day this program continues, hundreds of normal healthy babies are turned into defective goods: mentally retarded, blind, deaf, autistic, epileptic, learning-disabled, emotionally unstable, future juvenile delinquents, and career criminals.
Why Johnny Can’t Read Or Do Much Else, Either…
Dr. Coulter reported that, in 1963, the U.S. Health Service listed nearly 100 signs and symptoms associated with hyperactivity and changed the name to “minimal brain dysfunction.” It is also called “minimum brain damage.” (MBD) By the 1970s, minimal brain damage was a major challenge to the American school system, as well as the most common diagnosis at child guidance clinics and the most time consuming problem to child psychiatry as well.
By the time 1984 rolled around, 13% of the children in some school districts were in special education classes, a figure that some believed were significantly under detected.
Minimally Brain Damaged children also have a high incidence of seizure disorders: epilepsy, tics, tremors, choreiform (twisting) movements, facial grimaces, infantile spasms, and others. Those with minimal MBD are disproportionately left-handed or ambidextrous also known as “poorly defined unilateral dominance”. A 1987 Washington Post-ABC News poll found that 16 percent of Americans under 30 were left handed or ambidextrous while only 12 percent of people over 60 were. Another poll found that 13 percent of 20 year olds were left handed compared to 5 percent of those over 50.
Dr. Coulter noted that since 1945, an epidemic of vaccine-induced sub-clinical encephalitis actually generated a disproportionate incidence of left-handedness and ambidexterity in the under-forty or under-thirty age groups.
Among the other characteristics of dyslexia include the inability to perform arithmetic or spell words. Some dyslexics are unable to write cursively and can only print. Delayed speech and other language issues are also common along with memory issues including inability to retain certain kinds of information.
Tracking of IQ test scores and Scholastic Aptitude Tests have seen a steady decline as well. SAT verbal scores dropped from 478 in 1963 to 424 in 1980 while math scores went from 502 to 466. By the time Dr. Coulter published this book in 1990, these scores were the lowest they’d been in the 66 year history of the tests. It’s important to note the IQ test scores have become easier so this decline is even more alarming. Similar declines were found in the American College Testing (ACT) Program.
Just so you know, in 1977, a Blue Ribbon Panel was convened in an effort to figure out why IQs were dropping so rapidly. They examined 79 hypotheses none of which panned out.
Because vaccinations are such a sacred cow, no one discussed the possibility that all this mental decline was a sign of vaccine damage. Now, 40 years later, doctors and scientists who question virtues of vaccines are automatically condemned.
Violent Crime And General Criminal Behavior On The Rise…
With the assassination of President John F. Kennedy by Lee Harvey Oswald in 1963, Dr. Coulter pointed out this was the beginning of a more violent America. A point to note, Oswald was both a dyslexic and otherwise neurologically defective.
The murder rate doubled between 1960 and 1980 from four to eight per 100,000. The largest increase occurred between 1960 and 1970 and by 1990, murder was the leading cause of death for black males aged 15 to 34. Assaults were estimated to be more than 100 per each case of murder or as much as 2,500,000. The total actually reported in 1980, for people over the age of 12 was 1,600,000.
FBI statistics showed a fifty percent increase in crimes of all categories.
Dr. Coulter pointed out (p.254):
The pertussis vaccination program was only sporadic in the 1920s and 1930s, becoming widespread during and after World War II. The appearance of autism and learning disabilities reflects the concomitant growth of this vaccination program.
Autism is diagnosed in the first years of life; so vaccinations yielded the first autistics in the early 1940s. Learning disabilities emerged eight or ten years later, when the children of this same generation were seen to have chronic difficulties in school. The learning-disabled children of the early 1950s were the brothers and sisters of the autistics of the early 1940s.
But these children, of course, kept growing into adolescence and adulthood. The generation born in 1945, and thus exposed for the first time to widespread vaccination, came of age in 1963.
Brain Damage Behavior That First Showed Up In The Radical 1960s..
(P.254) Any analysis of the 1960s radicalism at once discloses the themes which have already figured in our discussion of the sociopaths, post-encephalitic syndrome. For example, “Roots of Radicalism”, by Stanley Rothman and S. Robert Lichter, touches upon: ego weakness, feelings of worthlessness, childish egotism, impulsive violence, impatience, narcissism, the need to be in control. megalomania, alienation, lack of meaning, rage, paranoia, ambivalent hostility to authority, unfocussed aggression, the search for experience and sensation, inability to form intimate relations combined with sexual licentiousness, anxiety, depression, pyromania (“Burn, baby burn!!), sociopathy, alcoholism, and drug abuse.
Explaining The Vaccine Crisis In Ordinary People Terms…
Dr. Coulter, in the role of statistician, collected an array of data, only some of which I have provided here, which shows just how destructive vaccinations can be in destroying the ability for someone to function normally.
Just so you know, it was only after I read this book years ago that I realized that my various learning difficulties had a name…..dyslexia. As a first grader, my parents were told I was retarded but, since I was basically very alert, my parents didn’t buy that diagnosis and did a wonderful job of raising me with a very enriched and ego-supported childhood all the while I was suffering my way through public school. No one had any idea that my left handedness (also ambidextrous skills), my inability to write legibly, my inability to do arithmetic, my memory problems, and my inability to read with any proficiency were all clues to a pattern of brain damage.
The prep school I was sent to in the 8th grade was an unique place because they thought all children had special needs and in that way, the faculty had no difficulty shoring up my weaknesses at the same time encouraging my strengths to soar. I had no difficulty getting into several excellent colleges. It wasn’t until a year or so ago, I took what is called the ANAM test that I was reminded I am one the millions of walking wounded, robbed of a fully-functioning brain and not counted in any statistic.
The ANAM test, developed here in Oklahoma to test brain function, was available to me when I was helping out at the Patriot Clinics project I wrote about in an earlier article. The clinic specialized in healing Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). TBI is not just a whack in the head or a sudden change in air pressure, it can also be caused by toxicities of all kinds. The test is a computerized test where you look at a screen on the PC, then go to the next screen and answer questions related to the contents of the previous screen. I FLUNKED royally as did a surprising number of others who were volunteering at the clinic. I was consistently unable to recall most of what was on that earlier screen.
What piqued my interest in re-reading Dr. Coulter’s book was the knowledge that when a person has PTSD or TBI, they can be helped through hyperbaric oxygen treatments and various detox methods. As a victim of major mercury poisoning, thanks to my dental amalgam fillings, I also know that detox is possible and over time, one can potentially clean up the whole mess. Also, mostly unstudied by scientists, academics or statisticians, are the millions of us in the health freedom movement who have been living out our lives trying everything we can find at the health food store to help us sharpen our brain power. We are people with Minimal Brain Damage only nobody bothered to tell us we had it.
Also in our great debate over the issue of vaccines and autism, we are ignoring millions of others in the health freedom movement who have other diagnoses, or no disease name at all, for their ailments, that should also be included in the vaccine victims list.
