I am sick and tired of powerful people who have their own personal experiences with vaccine injury, but choose not to speak out for fear of losing some of their power. They are bearing false witness against the truth and the fate of the human race. IT HAS GOT TO STOP.
Jenny McCarthy was criticized by some in our community when she talked publicly about her son’s vaccine injury. There were those who said she should’ve have waited until somebody with more gravitas stepped up to the plate. What do we know now?
Even BEFORE Jenny McCarthy suspected vaccine injury, so did Robert De Niro. Why did he remain quiet? Was it so important to make “Meet the Fockers”and “Bad Grandpa”?
We also know that Sylvester Stallone and John Travolta had children with autism during this time. I don’t know what those two thought about vaccines, but seriously, when this happens to your child, how can you not think about it?
Think of what could have existed if those three actors had joined Jenny in speaking out publicly? De Niro, Stallone, and Travolta, you let us down. Jenny McCarthy was the true action hero. You guys only play them in the movies.
But such cowardice in the face of a MONUMENTAL ASSAULT ON ALL OUR CHILDREN isn’t the sole province of Hollywood actors.
Our community has been waiting for a champion with the guts, integrity, and mainstream audience to break out the vaccine-autism-cancer story out into the open. Have we found it in Tucker Carlson, the new face of Fox News?
In an email sent out to a group of activists today, Robert Kennedy, Jr. told an amazing story about how he came to be interviewed by Tucker Carlson for a segment that will run tonight.
Tucker is on at 6:00 PM PST (about 6:40 PM), 7:00 PM Mountain, 8:00 PM Central, and 9:00 PM EST.
The only other well-known media personality who has even allowed this subject to be discussed in the last ten years has been Bill Maher.
People I’ve never met before often tell me I am a hero. It’s happened to me about thirty or forty times as I’ve done my radio tour for my new book, INOCULATED: How Science Lost its Soul in Autism. The hosts will invariably have to tell me their own stories of suspected vaccine injury, tell me that my book put the entire issue into a clear and understandable narrative, and even sometimes tell me they believe God has prepared me for this mission. It’s pretty heady stuff.
Or there are the times I go to a conference or rally, and I introduce myself, or somebody sees my name tag and there’s that momentary pause as they look into my eyes as their own go wide, as if they’re meeting somebody they never actually expected to meet in the flesh. (It’s kind of the same look I get from my six-grade students when they run into me at the grocery store or the movies. They don’t think I exist in the REAL world.) I try to be friendly and agreeable and ask them about themselves. Some want to tell me everything and others get shy, as if I am some higher being who couldn’t possibly be interested in their story.
People I’ve known all my life tell me I’m dangerous…
I’m not a vegan, but some of my best friends practice this way of eating. They avoid all animal products. It usually starts out as something of an ethical concern for animals, then broadens into a worry about the effect of animal agriculture on the planet, and then they start to investigate whether the consumption of animal products is even healthy for human beings.
I can’t really say my concern for animals is as strong as the majority of vegans. But when they talk to me about the enormous toll that animal agriculture takes on the Earth, and some recent scientific findings about the health benefits of a plant-based diet, it makes me think. In my time I have loved my steaks, my Chicken McNuggets, and my beef jerky, but I really won’t be surprised if I one day end up as a vegan.
I like the idea of living a healthy life on a healthy planet. Being good to animals is just a bonus.
I encourage you to look closely at this remarkable picture of me with Minister Tony Muhammad of the Nation of Islam, taken at the Revolution for Truth Rally in our nation’s capital. Minister Tony grew up on the mean streets of Atlanta, Georgia, and was raised by a single mother with ten children. And me? I grew up on the fourteenth hole of Round Hill Country Club in Alamo, California, one of the wealthiest zip codes in the United States.
Do we look like friends? Do we look like the members of a mutual admiration society? Personally, I consider Minister Tony Muhammad to be my brother. He is a fellow warrior for truth and like the members of a well-trained military unit, I would gladly take a bullet for him.
I know many of you may be asking yourself why a white guy like me is so enamored of the Nation of Islam. Aren’t they a black separatist group who hates white people?
Well, after fighting in the trenches of the vaccine/autism war for more than a decade I’ve become a little wary of believing everything the mainstream media says about a group.
I mean, if you listen to what the mainstream media says about people like me, I supposedly want kids to die of disease.
I interviewed Minister Tony Muhammad for my book, INOCULATED: How Science Lost its Soul in Autism, to find out how he and Minister Louis Farrakhan became involved in this issue.
Minister Tony Muhammad is in charge of the Los Angeles Mosque of the Nation of Islam and is responsible for most of the Nation’s activities west of the Mississippi. About a year ago, Minister Tony got a call from one of his members, saying that Robert Kennedy, Jr. wanted to meet a member of the black community who had the courage to take on the vaccine/autism issue.
The minister agreed to the meeting.
He was shocked by the story told to him by Robert Kennedy, Jr. of how Dr. William Thompson, a senior scientist at the Centers for Disease Control was alleging a cover-up of data showing that African-American males were at an increased risk of autism from earlier administration of the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine.
Minister Tony immediately realized the significance of the information and put in a call to the head of the Nation of Islam, Minister Louis Farrakhan, to tell him about what he’d heard. Minister Farrakhan asked the group if they would be willing to fly out to Chicago to discuss the information with him personally.
On the afternoon of March 31, 2017 you will find me on the steps of the United States Capitol, taking part in the Revolution for Truth Rally, put together by Michelle Ford and many others. I will actually arrive a day earlier, and it will be a busy time. Many of the activists will be meeting with their representatives, and the community is being asked to make calls to their representatives and the White House to support our rally.
On Friday morning, we will rally in front of the White House, march to the National Press Club to support an event there, then proceed to the U.S. Capitol for an afternoon rally.
It is an impressive list of speakers, starting with Robert Kennedy, Jr., Barbara Loe Fisher of the National Vaccine Information Center, Minister Tony Muhammad of the Nation of Islam, Del Bigtree, the producer of VAXXED, Dr. Brian Hooker, Dr. Paul Thomas, Dr. Judy Mikovits, Dr. Toni Bark, Marcella Piper-Terry of VaxTruth, Dr. Diane Hennacy Powell, Sheila Lewis Ealey, and of course, me.
For a solid year I labored on the definitive book on vaccines and autism, backed up by documents turned over to the office of Congressman William Posey by senior Centers for Disease Control (CDC) scientist, Dr. William Thompson. These documents definitively show that by the early 2000s the administration of the CDC knew that vaccines were linked to autism, specifically through earlier administration of the MMR vaccine and the presence of mercury, and possibly other substances, like aluminum.
I expected to get little coverage in the mainstream media.
It’s why I paid a publicist more than $4,000 dollars to get me on more than fifty radio stations across the country. My agent took the book around to publishers, even those who had published similar topics, and every one of them was absolutely terrified. To get it published, I had to put out some of my own money.
I expected the mainstream media to ignore me.
What concerns me even more is that the autism community itself does not even seem to support such books. It’s probably why publishers like Skyhorse aren’t putting out that many titles in the area. They just don’t sell. If the pro-vaccine forces knew how much we don’t support our own community, they’d probably breathe a sigh of relief.
Don’t believe me?
This is what other disease communities do. I wrote PLAGUE: One Scientist’s Intrepid Search for the Truth About Human Retroviruses and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Autism and Other Diseases with Dr. Judy Mikovits, and the chronic fatigue syndrome/ME community responded by buying more than 10,000 hardcover copies and putting up 137 reviews on Amazon.
How is INOCULATED: How Science Lost its Soul in Autism doing after four months of being on the market? It’s sold a little under a thousand copies and there are 25 reviews on Amazon. Frankly, I’m kind of ashamed of my community. How can we defeat the pharmaceutical industry if we don’t even stand together?
I know that dealing with autism all the time gets parents down.
There is no vacation. I live it every day. I understand it. I know it seems overwhelming. But you have to get up off of your back and fight. We are so close. We know have a President who supports getting to the bottom of the vaccine/autism issue. He has even said that he knows of many children who were fine before getting their shot and were different afterwards. I cover all of that in my book.
I believe there are scientists who are getting to the bottom of HOW the vaccines derange the immune and neurological system of the developing child.
Remove all vaccines from usage for a period of five years, study them in laboratories and in animal models, then create a system to slowly introduce one vaccine at a time and monitor for long-term effects before even thinking of introducing a second vaccine.
Oh, and while that’s being done, immediately REPEAL AND DON’T REPLACE the 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act which currently gives pharmaceutical companies COMPLETE IMMUNITY FOR HARM DONE BY THEIR PRODUCTS.
What are the things we know?
We know that vaccines are causing MASSIVE DAMAGE to the health of our young and contributing to the massive epidemics of chronic diseases among those of working age and the dementias of the elderly. Don’t believe me? Just read the vaccine safety inserts.
All you really need to know is that the French aristocrats who lost their heads in the Revolution were unbelievably blind to the reasonable calls for reform and engaged in monumentally stupid acts which ensured their complete destruction.
It’s one thing to be on the losing side of a fight.
It’s another to know you’re losing.
The white majority in South Africa knew they were losing to Nelson Mandela’s call for justice and they took actions which averted a catastrophe. Even though the British ended up fighting a war with us, there were voices in England who thought that the whole affair was utter madness. Eventually, their views prevailed. Hell, even some Nazis could see where Hitler was leading them after D-Day and tried to change things by blowing him up.
But those Vaxxers, they’re an entire breed of STUPID unto themselves.
On the bonehead roll-call of history I think there are going to be two people topping the list, Peter Hotez, writing in The New York Times and Rachel Roberts writing for The Independent.
I have to say I feel like I’m making a LOT of new friends.
Okay, so maybe they’re not the kind of friends I’m used to having, the kind where I can get together with them on a moment’s notice, go out and see a movie with, or maybe play a round of golf, but I consider them friends nonetheless.
One of my new good friends is Deirdre Imus, the multiple New York Times bestselling author, President and Founder of The Deirdre Imus Environmental Health Center at Hackensack University in New Jersey, wife of radio superstar, Don Imus, co-founder of the Imus Cattle Ranch for Kids (the only vegetarian cattle ranch for kids with cancer), and a regular guest on Imus in the Morning’s Blonde on Blonde and Psychos segment.
What has Deirdre Imus done recently to make herself my friend?
Well, she has made my recent book, INOCULATED: How Science Lost its Soul in Autism, a “recommended reading” for her Environmental Health Center. That’s quite an honor. I consider anybody who takes such an action to publicize the scandal regarding vaccines and autism at the Centers for Disease Control, as alleged by whistle-blower, Dr. William Thompson, to be one of my very best friends, even if I have never laid eyes on them.
I’ve handed out somewhere in the neighborhood of twenty copies of the DVD, “VAXXED: From Cover-up to Catastrophe,” the fine documentary by Dr. Andrew Wakefield, Del Bigtree, and Polly Tommey, about the allegations of CDC whistle-blower, Dr. William Thompson, and the allegation of a cover-up of research linking the MMR (measles, mumps and rubella) vaccine to autism.
Usually this follows a predictable pattern, with me feeling like I’ve essentially thrown another DVD down the black hole of societal indifference. But sometimes I’m surprised.
The Subtle Change…
This last week, one teacher (I’ll call her Darcy*) I’d given it to, returned it to me with a short note that simply said, “WOW!” After school ended that day I called Darcy and said I wanted to know more. She briefly told me she thought it was powerful, but then said she had to rush off, and we’d find some time later to talk about it.
The next day I stopped by her room and she had more time for me. “Yeah, I thought it was really well-done,” she said, then proceeded to ask me some questions, such as whether I thought the issue would be fixed by breaking up the MMR shot into its individual components, or whether I thought that vaccines should be avoided entirely.
They were wonderful questions, and I struggled to answer them. I confessed that a lot of my answers had a great deal of vagueness to them, but it wasn’t due to my lack of consideration of the issue. The problem was the lack of good science done by our public health agencies.
I said that I believed breaking up the MMR vaccines into its individual components was SAFER, but couldn’t say it was SAFE. As to the vaccine program itself, if you believe the authorities have lied about one portion of it, what makes you believe the rest of it has any validity? It’s a little like saying you trust that drunk driver who smashed up his car with your kid in it on last Saturday, because it’s Monday, and he says he’s only a weekend drinker.
When it comes to the safety of children, I’m going to have to have a little more information than has presently been provided. I told her I had a simple answer. Get rid of the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986, throw ALL the vaccines back into the regular civil justice system, then let the attorneys work on these cases for the next five years, and take another look. Our justice system can handle vaccines fine. The vaccines just need to be in the regular civil justice system, and not in the abomination called “Vaccine Court.”
It was then that our conversation took a deeper turn. Darcy said, “Everything in that documentary is just like what happened to my nephew.”
I’ve been wanting to write this article for a long time. I’ve been waiting years for the moment to arrive when the normal rules which govern human behavior begin to reassert themselves.
What do I mean by that?
I mean that when some child falls down a well and can’t immediately be rescued, the whole country stops, prays, and holds its collective breath until that child is rescued. Have two crazed lunatics set off bombs at the Boston Marathon and the city will push itself to the very limits of endurance until the perpetrators are caught. Our televisions are filled with images of sick children asking for money for the hospital which cares for them and we are moved.
Nothing even remotely similar happens for autism families.
Our children have fallen down the well of neurological injury, and not only are we ignored, but we are actively attacked for saying that vaccines caused these injuries, and are doing so on a massive scale.
Years before Hillary Clinton used the expression, “basket of deplorables” we knew that was how the mercenary media, propped up by their pharma dollars, portrayed us to the public.
Our public health authorities and the pharmaceutical companies have blown apart the health of a generation of children and yet the public is strangely silent. Instead, we who point out this carnage are depicted as the enemy. Like the vassals of some totalitarian state, the public outrage is directed at those who simply point out the truth.
Our children are sick and nobody comes to our aid.
I never expected that this is what would become of my life.
I never expected that the boy who grew up on the fourteenth hole of Roundhill Country Club would become an activist against the pharmaceutical companies which are pursuing actions which might well lead to the wholesale destruction of our species.
It’s enough to ruin your whole day.
Like many activists who have fallen down this particular rabbit-hole, I have often found the immensity of what is at stake with vaccines to be over-whelming. I can only look to historical examples, sometimes for inspiration, and others for what to avoid.
I think of nineteenth century Hungarian physician, Dr. Ignaz Semmelweis, who decades before the hygiene theory of health, had the presence of mind to notice that women who delivered their children with mid-wives had a much lower rate of death than women who had their children delivered by doctors. Attempting to account for this discrepancy, he noted that the doctors of the day were often dissecting human cadavers, then were going straight to delivering. Semmelweis thought that maybe something from those human cadavers was sticking around on the hands of those doctors. Maybe they needed to wash their hands after doing a dissection. What a revolutionary thought.
I was deeply honored to get the following foreword by Barry Segal, the founder of Focus for Health, to my new book, “INOCULATED: How Science Lost its Soul in Autism.” In every campaign of hope there is the challenge of getting individuals who feel marginalized and defeated to rise up and take action. This autism challenge has been a great example of that problem.
Who wants to read another autism book which will just make me feel bad and overwhelmed, you might ask?
I didn’t write this book to make you feel hopeless. I wrote this book to make you feel empowered. I want you to know how fragile our enemy is and how close we are to a cure for this terrible diseases, even for the older children like my daughter who seem so far from hope. I GUARANTEE you that my book is a POSITIVE force for GOOD that can lead us to VICTORY if only enough people buy it, read it, and figure out how to take ACTION.
Foreword – By Barry Segal
As we approach the beginning of 2017, the autism epidemic rages on unhindered and unnoticed by the Federal Government. In the early 1980s the incidence of autism was about 1 in 10,000. Now, it is 1 in 45, and continuing to grow at an exponential pace. I was first exposed to the autism epidemic in the late 2000s and heard recurring accounts of children regressing into the condition following one or more of their infant vaccines. To respond to this tragedy that so many families were and still are facing, I formed Focus Autism in 2009. The controversies surrounding the cause of the autism epidemic are many and the U.S. government’s response is woeful at best.
We autism parents have all been there. You know what I’m talking about. Your child was normally developing, they got their vaccinations, and then everything started to go very wrong.
They say when terrible things happen to human beings we need to talk about it, to process what has taken place. You get into a car accident, and for the next few months you’ll talk about it to just about anybody who will listen. The trauma begins to recede and you can move onto the next phase of your life, whatever that may entail.
But nothing even remotely similar to that has taken place for autism parents. It is as if we have been in a horrific car accident, but when we go to talk about it, people tell us there are no such things as cars.
Like many of you, I have had to endure the same response from family and friends. Perhaps it is my overly optimistic nature, but I kept thinking there had to be a way to get people to listen. I may have a law degree, but not a medical one. But lawyers are the ones putting doctors on the stand, and when the evidence warrants, making them pay for their mistakes. If the evidence is overwhelming enough, we even charge them criminally and prosecute them. I think that’s what I do in my new book, INOCULATED: How Science Lost its Soul in Autism, now available on Amazon.
The Reality of “Science…”
I mean, seriously, over the years, science hasn’t really had a good track record when it comes to social policy. At the beginning of the last century they were all over the idea of eugenics, giving rise to the crimes of Nazi Germany, then they really liked electro-shock treatment for mental problems, as well as forced sterilization, and hey, even in my life-time the American Psychological Association declared that being gay was a “mental disorder.”
In 2012 I started putting together a book, PLAGUE, with Dr. Judy Mikovits, that used her research published in the journal Science, to argue that an HIV-like retrovirus (originally found in mice, but which had somehow jumped to humans) might be causing the body to overreact in some people and trigger conditions like chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) and autism. The scenario would go something like this: scientists know the HIV retrovirus hangs out in the cells of the immune system, so any attempt to stimulate the immune system could cause the HIV retrovirus to replicate out of control and cause disease. That’s why babies born to HIV-infected mothers are IMMEDIATELY put on anti-retrovirals, PRIOR to ANY vaccination. The concern was also raised in the book that the virus had jumped from mice to humans during vaccine production as mice tissue was used to grow and weaken many of the viruses later used in vaccines. One might say I’d argued for a vaccine two-fer. Vaccines not only transferred the retrovirus to humans which had caused the problem, but continued stimulation of the immune system was causing this retrovirus to rampage out of control.
I really thought I’d threaded a needle, creating a plausible explanation for the scientific community which would explain why a vaccination might trigger autism in some children, and hopefully lead to a productive discussion.
The first radio interview for my new book, INOCULATED: How Science Lost its Soul in Autism was with Robert Scott Bell out of Florida.
Since then I’ve been on radio shows in Boston, MA (Frankie Boyer’s Holistic Talk Radio), Pittsburg, PA (Hank Baughman show), New York, NY (Dirty, Sexy Funny with Jenny McCarthy on Sirius XM radio), Phoenix, AZ (the fiery libertarian, Ernie Hancock), Palm Springs, CA (Law of Attraction Radio with Jewels Johnson), and even laid back, Santa Cruz, CA (Food Chain Radio with Michael Olson).
And more coming…
I’m currently scheduled for approximately forty-five radio shows with another twenty shows trying to figure out a time I’m available.
Why am I getting all this attention for a controversy, vaccines and autism, that’s supposed to be “settled science?” Maybe it’s because in the summer of 2014 a senior CDC scientist, Dr. William Thompson, turned over more than ten thousand documents to the office of Congressman William Posey, alleging that in the early 2000s the CDC investigated claims of the MMR (measles, mumps and rubella) vaccine being linked to autism, and found that there was a link.
Could the new President-Elect of our country, Donald J. Trump, have really met with Dr. Andrew Wakefield? You’ve probably heard the rumors, maybe you’ve even seen the video of Wakefield saying that Trump understands our concerns and will never allow mandatory vaccinations. He goes onto say that he believes Trump will investigate the problems at the CDC, including the allegations of Dr. William Thompson.
It’s all true…
How do I know?
Because I interviewed two people who were at that meeting. Do you want facts? It took place on August 11, 2016 in Kissimmee, Florida and lasting a little under an hour from four to five in the afternoon.
And it’s all in my new book, INOCULATED: How Science Lost its Soul in Autism, available right now on Amazon. Here’s a little bit of a tease for you:
I owe a genuine debt of gratitude to the readers of The Bolen Report. It’s one thing to put a book together, but it’s quite another thing to figure out the best strategy to get that story out to the public.
I’m probably not alone in being frustrated by the glacial pace of traditional publishing. My agent had started pitching my new book, INOCULATED: How Science Lost its Soul in Autism, back in February, and although there was some interest, nothing was on the table. Even if some publisher bit in the summer, the book probably wouldn’t be available to the public until 2018. That was too long for me.
My agent told me that her agency had its own publishing division and if I wanted, I could publish with them. But I wouldn’t have the big marketing push of a traditional publisher. That was fine with me, as I had always considered this something of a guerilla campaign. We could get it out to the public very quickly. But I wanted to know if that was the right way to go and so I put this question to the readers of The Bolen Report.
Your responses were informed, passionate, well-reasoned, and I listened. I’ve always had this sense that the book should be published in November of 2016, either before or after the Presidential election, and right now the publishing date is Wednesday, November 9. And hopefully by now Amazon has updated the listing so you see the picture of my beautiful cover and a summary of the book. And I’ve hired a first-rate marketing team. We’re going to knock this one out of the park.
But I felt I should do more to express my gratitude to the readers of The Bolen Report, so I’m giving you an exclusive “sneak peek” at the first few pages. I want you to know I really do mean to start a rebellion. I also want to express my personal appreciation to Tim Bolen for his suggestions about the book and publicity. He is a man who knows how to think, strategize, and fight.
For those of you who want to know the inside story of CDC whistle-blower, Dr. William Thompson, the years of struggle of Dr. Brian Hooker to find out the truth about vaccines and autism, and the thirty-year disaster vaccines have become since the 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act, I give you the first few pages of INOCULATED:
Don’t you often wonder what people say behind your back? Especially the powerful politicians, to whom you bring your grievances like a medieval peasant, begging for justice from your king?
Well, thanks to Julian Assange and Wiki-Leaks, you can read what the Hillary Clinton campaign thinks about the vaccine issue. It’s not pretty. And it’s not that encouraging about the other side as well.
On Thursday, September 8, 2016 at 7:30 p.m. I hosted a screening of VAXXED: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe at the Crow Canyon Cinemas in my hometown of San Ramon, California.
Brandy Vaughn, the former pharmaceutical sales representative from Merck and now a health activist, joined me for a panel discussion after the movie. We ended up selling a hundred and thirty two tickets, a number beyond my wildest expectations.
But it was something deeper than showing of a film. It was an opportunity for my wife and our 16 year-old neuro-typical son to better understand what we have been living with for the past eighteen years.
My daughter, Jacqueline is vaccine-injured and severely autistic.
While my son spends his summers in the weight room working out to earn a spot on his high school track team, my daughter has trouble walking. That is the reality of my life. I rescued my son from the path of autism, but have not yet rescued my daughter.
