Court Awards $2.5 Million to Vaccine Critic Dr. Mark Geier…

We all know that small victories herald the larger victories to come.

By Kent Heckenlively, JD

We also know that when we talk about “Medical Boards,” we’re really talking about the stalking horses for pharma.  These are where the great battles are truly fought, among relatively small groups of people, having an enormous impact on the rest of us.  The good things are killed in the dark, away from the prying eyes of the public.

From the work I did covering the Autism Omnibus Hearings, and my later work detailed in the book, INOCULATED: How Science Lost its Soul in Autism, it’s clear that if the CDC whistle-blower, Dr. William Thompson had just a little more courage, or if Dr. Frank De Stefano or the head of the CDC at that time, Dr. Julie Gerberding were really interested in public health, we would be living in a completely different world with much more hope for our children.

That’s why the recent news that Dr. Mark Geier, one of the truly courageous people involved in the Autism Omnibus Hearing who was unfairly sidelined, had won a $2.5 million dollar suit against the Maryland Board of Physicians, is so deeply satisfying.

As reported in The Washington Post,“But the regulators who stripped Geier’s credentials are now in the hot seat, ordered to each personally pay tens of thousands of dollars in damages by a judge who says the board abused its power in an attempt to humiliate the doctor and his family.”  (“Regulators Who Targeted Anti-Vaccine Doctor May Pay Million for Humiliating Him,” By Fenit Nirappil, The Washington Post, February 3, 2018)

That’s really got to annoy the “skeptics,” or the pharma-mafia cheiftans like Dr. Paul Offit or Tony Faucci.  They never liked lawyers to begin with, which is why people like them spear-headed the removal of lawyers from vaccine liability with the passage of the 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act.

But justice is slowly finding its way back.  Just ask all those sexually harassing Congressmen who are suddenly deciding not to run for re-election because they want to “spend more time with their families.”  If you believe that explanation I’ve got a story to tell you about the Easter Bunny laying candy eggs.

How hard did the judge slap the Maryland Board of Physicians?

“But Montgomery County Circuit Court Judge Ronald B. Rubin sided with the Geiers, awarding them $2.5 million in damages.  He called the order a significant breach of medical privacy and accused the board and its staff of failing to preserve emails related to the case and pleading ignorance about the order on the witness stand.”

“If their testimony were to be believed, which the court does not, it is the worst case of collective amnesia in the history of the Maryland government and on par with the collective memory failure on display at the Watergate hearings,” Rubin wrote in a December opinion.

“He ordered 14 board appointees, the board’s lead attorney and the lead investigator on the Geier case to pay half of the damages out of their own pockets, between $10,000 and $200,000 apiece, depending on their net worth.”

WOW.  THAT’S A BEAT-DOWN.

Geiers v Maryland – Let the Lawsuits Begin…  Geier Family Sues Sleazy Investigator, Prosecutor, and Corrupt/Inept Maryland Board of Physicians

Opinion by Consumer Advocate  Tim Bolen 

 

It’s time for a laugh.

On Friday, December 21st, 2012, according to the Mayan calendar, the world was going to end.  But, when we all woke up the morning of the 22nd, the world was, and is, still here.  Perhaps there was an error, or maybe even a misunderstanding about that date.

Or, maybe the Mayans were referring to the Maryland Board of Physicians and their stumbling cronies, who, after all, fully believe that THEY are a world unto themselves.  Maybe the Mayans, a society that had far reaching understanding of the celestial picture, were, perhaps, speaking rhetorically.

Maryland Board – Eight Minutes, Fourteen Seconds…

Opinion by Consumer Advocate  Tim Bolen 

 

Every entity develops a personality, and a life, of its own.  Public agencies are no exception.  Sometimes an entity develops so negatively that there is simply no point in saving it.  There is virtually nothing worth keeping.  The Maryland Board of Physicians is one of those entities.

The problem is that every State needs to regulate certain kinds of health professionals – specifically those that, because of their offerings, can seriously damage consumers.  But sometimes, as in the case of the Maryland Board of Physicians the seeming solution becomes worse than the problems it is there to prevent.

Maryland Board Fails – They Could Not Stop the Geiers…  The Counter Attack Begins…

Opinion by Consumer Advocate  Tim Bolen 

 

Wednesday, July 25th, 2012, the Maryland Board of Physicians played its last card in its organized assault against Mark and David Geier.  They had their last meeting to decide the Geiers’ fate, so to speak.

But no matter what their decision is about the Geiers, it is of no importance whatsoever.  For this last act, this meeting, is the finale of the situation controlled by the Maryland Board of Physicians.  To this point members, and employees, of the Board controlled the process, and the information flow, using what is known as an Administrative Procedure.

Maryland Board of Physicians Seeks a Whitewash…

Opinion by Consumer Advocate  Tim Bolen 

 

Health care is a serious business, but sometimes I just have to laugh out loud at the antics of those “we the people” have been dumb enough to entrust with administrative function in our health care system – example:  The Maryland Board of Physicians.

As we all know, the Maryland legislature issued a two-hundred page report virtually declaring the physician board incompetent last week, and hearings have been scheduled to bring the board to task. Continue reading Maryland Board of Physicians Seeks a Whitewash…

Maryland Board of Physicians May Not Survive Attack on Mark and David Geier…

Opinion by Consumer Advocate  Tim Bolen 

 

The Maryland Board of Physicians woke up last week to find that the Maryland legislature, which they thought, I guess, was completely asleep, had quietly, and very thoroughly, conducted a formal investigation of the board’s operation.  The legislative committee in charge of this secret investigation issued a two-hundred page report scalding the department, virtually declaring the board incompetent and working against the interests of the people of Maryland.

In a moment I will show you flaming excerpts from this report.  Continue reading Maryland Board of Physicians May Not Survive Attack on Mark and David Geier…

The Vaccine Industry’s Campaign to Destroy Mark and David Geier is Failing Miserably …

Opinion by Consumer Advocate  Tim Bolen 

 

The pseudo-skeptic weenies that write (and band together to get Google ranking)  about Mark and David Geier would like their readers to believe that dire things are happening to the father and son nemeses of the vaccine industry.  They will tell you, for instance, that more and more States are taking Mark Geier’s medical licenses away – blah, blah, blah…

It is all just a ruse to damage the Geiers.  And, it is not working. Continue reading The Vaccine Industry’s Campaign to Destroy Mark and David Geier is Failing Miserably …

What’s Coming Up in the Geier Case…

Opinion by Consumer Advocate  Tim Bolen 

 

It is surprising to the average American to find out that “the system” we the people put in place to monitor our interests, a good part of the time, simply does not work.  It becomes corrupted by the very people we entrusted.

Parents of Autistic children are the latest group to find out this harsh truth.  They, without doubt, are among the worst of the victims.  They join, for instance, families of Cancer victims, who, themselves, thought our American health care system had value – until one of theirs met the US Cancer Industry – and they watched their loved one die horribly to be followed up by a hospital’s collection agents come after the survivor’s home to pay “the co-pay.” Continue reading What’s Coming Up in the Geier Case…

The Fundamental Issues Coming Up in the Geier Case…

Opinion by Consumer Advocate  Tim Bolen 

 

A hearing will begin in Maryland in front of an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) tomorrow morning (June 17th, 2011) to determine whether, or not, the Maryland Board of Physicians had justifiable cause to immediately suspend Mark Geier MD’s medical license.  The hearing could last up to a week before all of the world-class Geier witnesses could be heard.

About Kathleen Seidel – Would You Leave Your Child in This Woman’s Day Care Center?

Opinion by Consumer Advocate  Tim Bolen 

 

KseidelIn an earlier article The Attack on Mark and David Geier,”  I wrote about the basis for the attack on Mark Geier MD – the original (Formal Complaint) filed against them by a woman named Lisa Randall, the mouthpiece for a national vaccine promo group.

That (Formal Complaint)  was based, totally, on the writings of one Kathleen Seidel who fashions herself as a spokesperson for what she describes as “the neurodiverse.” Seidel’s photo, from a New York Magazine article, is at the right.

The Attack on Mark and David Geier…

Opinion by Consumer Advocate  Tim Bolen 

 

An attorney friend of mine, Bob Reeves, a mainstay in the mercury in health care wars, called me last April 28th, 2011 and asked me to look into some strange occurrences regarding Mark Geier MD and his son David Geier.  As everyone knows, the Geiers are severe critics of the fact that Thimerosal (mercury – deadly toxic to humans) has NOT, despite false claims and misrepresentations from the vaccine industry, been removed from vaccines.
