You know what “science” is, don’t you? It’s that magical, talismanic word that settles any bar bet with the same type of certainty that in the middle ages any priest could use by saying, “That’s not what it says in the Bible.”
However, any person who has spent even the slightest bit of time in Bible studies knows that there is a rich intellectual tradition and that the interpretation of the words of the Bible, considering cultural traditions at the time, as well as the different and imprecise translations of words and concepts, can take up a lifetime. Just as any Talmudic scholar.
My point is that any person who wants to settle an argument by saying “it’s science” or “That’s not what it says in the Bible” is probably a moron and you should probably find another place to sit in the bar. Continue reading “Science” and the Causes of Autism…
I have, right here in front of me, the State of California’s 112 page official response to the SB 277 lawsuit, opposing a Preliminary Injunction August 12th, 2016. It looks as if it was written by that goofball (a child can take 10,000 vaccines at once) Paul Offit MD.
The second paragraph of the State’s “Introduction” says it all. You are going to love what they did.
I’ll explain below.
I sit here with excitement, like, I think, the Russian battle commanders must have felt watching the beginning of “The Charge of the Light Brigade” coming their way, so well portrayed by Alfred Lord Tennyson in 1854. The Light Brigade was armed with sabers (knives) and they attacked a position armed with cannon and rifles.. Continue reading SB 277 Lawsuit – The State Responds…
Yesterday, Kent Heckenlively JD, in a poignant article titled “The Coming War and its Aftermath” pointed out the frustrations of trying to solve the vaccine damage issue in North America. He was right on…
One of the strangest things I have ever come across in my 72 years is the way health care is handled in the United States. It is not a business, nor a social issue. It has become the State Religion.
The State Religion? Yup…
For instance, if our health care system ran our computer industry, starting way back, we’d all, now, be using the equivalent of #2 pencils. They would cost $42,000 each, and you would need a license, and special permission (after adequate studies were performed) to use the eraser.
While the people of California have some challenging times ahead of them in the fight for health freedom, there are folks that are gathering and willing to work together with TRANSPARENCY and PERSONAL ACCOUNTABILITY.
(1) The meeting was significant in a number of ways. First, the participants agreed to cooperate under the umbrella of the newly formed Texas Health Freedom Coalition (THFC).
The rationale was that a large umbrella organization acting cooperatively would be more influential, by virtue of their greater numbers, at the state legislature than a number of smaller groups, and simultaneously would be less vulnerable to attacks by the trade union organizations seeking to monopolize various segments of the health care field.
(2) Second, since the THFC would be the actor of record, the credit for victories and advances would be shared among the groups as a coalition. Each group would play its own meaningful role, and it was agreed that no single group would claim primary credit. As Radhia so aptly stated, “united we stand, divided we fall.”
(3) Third, our interactions among the groups would be transparent. While each group would, of course, continue to operate within their own governing structure, their THFC-related activities and decisions would be visible to all. No behind-the-scenes jockeying for advantage, no intramural squabbles, and no ego trips.
(4) Fourth, the groups agreed to work together on issues of common interest, with no public criticism of another group’s individual organizational agendas. Those common interest items were two: advancing health freedom of choice legislation in Texas and opposing the Texas dietitians who, as it turned out, had betrayed the clinical nutritionists and were now pursuing exclusionary licensing legislation benefiting only themselves.
Additionally, every one of the Texas leaders attending that meeting did so in their collective capacity as volunteers. There were no professional state level organizational leaders, which meant that no one had an overriding personal (i.e., economic) agenda.
The final agenda item was the selection of the THFC chair. To my surprise, I was asked to fill that position. In hindsight, it made sense. The combination of my military/organizational background and the equally important fact that I represented no organization other than one advocating strictly for health freedom meant that I could assume the role of honest broker, should any intramural disputes arise.
On July 1st, 2016 a lawsuit was filed in a San Diego Federal Court asking the court to declare infamous California Senate Bill 277 unconstitutional, and prevent its enforcement. It was an excellent read. Its filing compared, in war terms, to the June 6th, 1944 “D-Day” Invasion of Normandy. The “good guys” were on the beach beginning the counterattack against the forces of evil.
The news traveled across Planet Earth like a soothing spring rain.
Then, yesterday and today, July 14th and 15th, 2016, new filings are appearing starting with what is called, simply enough, a “- FIRST AMENDED COMPLAINT FOR DECLARATORY, INJUNCTIVE AND OTHER RELIEF.” And, although I liked the first filing VERY MUCH, and said so.
I like these legal filings even more.
Before I show them to you, and explain, in simple terms, what is actually going on there are TWO important points I need to make. They are::
(1) This whole event, these legal actions, and all of the investigations and sorting of material leading to all of this legal action is the work of a giant, secret, army who managed to work quietly, and unobtrusively, gathering and sorting, making new alliances, for the express purposes surrounding the issues so carefully, and powerfully, explained in the legal papers. Look around. There they are. There YOU are…
Here WE are… The doors are open. Come and play.
(2) So MUCH is happening with this First Amended Complaint that I am going to break the explanation of it all into separate parts – so, after this article, there is MUCH MORE good stuff coming. You WILL love this….

In a Newsweek article from 2012 entitled, “An epidemic of special needs kids heads for a crisis of care”author Michelle Cottle describes how there is a current crisis of care, particularly in autism, as children with neurodevelopmental disorders are aging out of the school system. She stated that there was a “800-pound gorilla in the room: autism” and that the “epidemic,” or “swelling population” was placing strains on our health-care, education, and social-services systems. She quoted Geraldine Dawson, with Autism Speaks, as saying, “We as a nation are not prepared.”
That was 2012 and the crisis of care continues as children with autism age out of the school system. However, the second crisis in care in autism is just starting to reveal itself.
The second crisis of care in autism will happen when the parents of these autistic children start to die.
This second crisis of care will probably be considerably worse that the first crisis of care. It remains to be seen what will happen to this vulnerable population.
The recent tragedy involving a 22 year old girl with autism in Louisiana shown in the linked video below may be providing a glimpse of things to come. In that case, this 22 year old autistic girl, reported to have the mind of a child, ended up living with distant relatives when her mother died. Sadly, these distant relatives kept her locked in a cage outside for as long as nine months. She was abused and lost about 60 pounds during her ordeal, which ended June 30, 2016 when sheriff’s deputies freed her from her captors. After being evaluated at a local hospital, she was placed in the care of the Louisiana Health Department.

Note from Tim Bolen – I have been a huge critic of the mainstream Cancer treatment establishment for a very long time. President Richard Nixon funded the “War on Cancer” in 1972, challenging mainstream to solve the cancer problem. They promised to do that within eighteen months if given enough money. In forty four years they have made ZERO progress. American have found that there are alternatives to mainstream that work very well, are cheaper, and you, and/or your loved ones get to live. And, you get to travel…
As a reader of the Bolen Report for many years, it is a great honor and pleasure to contribute a cancer report. Our goal is to provide timely information about the most effective ways to treat cancer.
We will review treatment protocols, treatment centers and additional topics In support of cancer patients. We will also provide details about conferences, expos and meetings where you (and your doctor) can learn the latest, most up-to-date information as to the best ways to treat cancer. We intend to balance our reports between certain factual information and opinion based on observation and experience.
The primary focus will be Alternative and Integrative approaches because…
It’s always been a mystery to me how President Reagan, generally known for his suspicion of unchecked governmental power, could have signed the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986, which established the so-called “Vaccine Court.” To the parents of many children with autism, this legislation is the direct cause of the autism epidemic.
While researching my new book, INOCULATED: How Science Lost Its Soul in Autism, I came across the answer in the pages of the New York Times. (Full disclosure – In my younger days I was a “Youth Delegate for Reagan” to the 1984 Republican Convention in Dallas. Forgive me. I was young and foolish.) In an article by Robert Pear, which was published on November 15, 1986, in the New York Times entitled, “Reagan Signs Bill on Drug Exports and Payment for Vaccine Injuries,” (and easily accessible through a simple Google search), Reagan laid out his thoughts. Continue reading What Did President Reagan Think About “Vaccine Court?”
I have here, on my desk, a DRAFT copy of the lawsuit to be filed tomorrow, Friday, July 1st, 2016 against SB277 in California. I can’t show you a copy of the final version until the exact moment it is filed. I am sworn to secrecy.
But, There ARE some things I can tell you right now:
(1) My friend Diane Miller JD, sometime Author for the BolenReport, and the head of the Health Freedom Congress, is flying in from Minnesota tomorrow to attend, and speak at, the Santa Monica Rally organized by Wendy Silvers. She will speak on the details of the lawsuit. Go there to hear what she has to say.
(2) I can tell you the names of the attorneys involved and tell you what I know about them. You will be pleased.
(3) I can tell you the basic outline of the case – what the points are, and why the attorneys are going in THOSE SPECIFIC directions. Once again, you will be pleased.
(4) I can tell you WHY there was so much secrecy in the organization of the case – and why I agreed with that tactic.
If you pay regular attention to virtually any media organization in this country, from time to time (very infrequently!) you may encounter an obscure story about how the influence of money has negatively impacted the quality of scientific research in virtually every field of science.
Those of us who are chronologically advantaged (read that: old!) can remember when that was not the case. In the 1970s and before, much scientific research was conducted in government laboratories. Perhaps more important, regardless of where government-funded research was conducted, none of the researchers or their organizations could profit from the results of that research.
Ok, some of you were put-off by the “anti-vaxxer” moniker in my last article. Some suggested you’re all health freedom fighters. I’m not willing to bestow that laudatory title until I see a more cohesive, rational and convincing case made, though I’m sure I am a minority of one on this in the health freedom community.
How about the designator “vaccine-concerned” or “VC” for short? It’s neutral, accurately descriptive, and this is my post. From now on, I am going to refer to you as “vaccine-concerned” or “VC.” I mean to include both ends of the VC spectrum, and here are the ends of the spectrum as I see it.
For sure, you are not together.
At one end are those who want vaccination criminalized because it harms everyone who is vaccinated. It includes people who deny that vaccines have had any benefit to mankind, and that it’s all a pharma scheme to suck money from the masses. It also includes the personal freedom people who think the government has no right to force anyone to get any vaccine or impose any consequences on the unvaccinated, regardless of the perceived consequences that the ignorant majority and conventional scientists think will be caused by the unvaccinated.
At the other end of the spectrum are the folks who are concerned that there might be too many vaccines for kids right now, who accept some preservative-free vaccines for some serious diseases, unless there are sound medical contraindications. It also includes those who will compromise their personal freedom to get inoculations before traveling to some foreign countries where diseases survive which have been long extinct in this country. This end of the spectrum also includes those who understand that the VC, who have strongly-held and metaphysically true beliefs, have to acknowledge and work within the system in which they currently represent a minority view. Indeed, these folks even understand that their views are considered by the mainstream to be anti-science and fringe. (See the just published article in the New Yorker entitled “The Mistrust of Science” by mainstream surgeon, author (and medical establishment tool), Atul Gawande. Continue reading MANLY ADVICE FOR MY CALIFORNIA ANTI-VAXXER FRIENDS…
So in California come July 1st, there will no vaccine exemptions based on personal belief. However, there still will be a medical exemption, such as it is.
My understanding is that pediatrics/public health recognizes some contraindications for specific vaccines, but very, very few (if any) contraindications for not giving a child any vaccine anytime. I’ve heard that at least one prominent CAM healthcare attorney is advising his California CAM physician clients not to write medical exemption letters for parents who have a fear of or personal belief against vaccination. That might be prudent advice, and certainly no lawyer will get into trouble for giving it. Obviously, this is all very bad news for anti-vaxers.
You are not going to like this, but…
I will probably weigh-in on what I think are the medically supported justifications for the exemption another time and another forum. For now, I’d like to talk to my anti-vaxer friends and colleagues, including those who for tactical/PR reasons characterize their views as in support of “informed consent” about the “dangers of vaccination”. You’re not going to like it, but to paraphrase Ziggy Martin in “Drive,” who’s gonna tell you when you’re too late and aren’t so great In terms of where we are and the constitutional arguments being tossed around, well, you’re too late, wrong, and less lyrically, the imprecise hyperbolic language is not helping you focus on what may be realistically achievable.
First, the inaccurate hyperbole: California anti-vaxers claim that their kids and child care professionals are being forced by the government to be vaccinated. Not true. I’m from Texas, and in Texas we know what forced vaccination looks like. A couple years ago, the Texas legislature tried to force all young girls to get the HPV vaccine. The measure ultimately failed because of the public outcry against forced vaccination. California is not forcing anyone to get vaccinated. Rather, it imposes consequences (albeit draconian) for the unvaccinated; for kids, no public or private school; for adults, you can’t teach kids or be a child caregiver. That’s a big difference constitutionally and legally in general. But in addition, by mis-framing the issue, you may be missing some realistic partial, medium-term solutions, as I’ll explain in a moment. Continue reading TO MY CALIFORNIA ANTI-VAXXER FRIENDS: HERE’S SOME PROBABLY UNWANTED BUT POSSIBLY USEFUL ADVICE…
It had to happen sooner or later. BolenReport Authors and articles are first rate, so, of course we attracted an official Roman Catholic Church Saint to write for us…
Let us consider the picture: Disease is something that happens that nobody likes. It can be very dangerous. Every year, untold lives are ended prematurely and unpleasantly because of disease.
What can be done to prevent disease is a question pondered by people of medicine since time began.
No one likes to get sick, no parent likes to see their child suffer, diseases can be dangerous—and, with the vaccine, science today claims to have found an approach that fulfills its expressed purpose. Because of what they tell us, the public has grown to not question the holy sacrament of vaccination. Indeed, neither have the scientists, who are currently working on hundreds more vaccines intended to be “fast tracked” upon the public (1). Vaccines are credited with the eradication of many diseases. But let’s take a closer look at what has actually happened. What do the facts really tell us? What have we not been told?
Are Vaccines Necessary?
Injecting foreign proteins into the human body is a medical intervention. We know that medical error constitutes the third leading cause of death in the United States. (2) With the convenience of the internet and readily available information, word is getting out. Medical science doesn’t have all the answers.Continue reading Why Do We Need Vaccines?
The MOST ABHORRENT part of this whole usurping of parental AND adult rights, was the claim that the immunocompromised, need UNRELIABLE, UNSCIENTIFICALLY-PROVEN Vaccine-Induced HERD IMMUNITY for their protection.
People make choices – what they will see and what will remain invisible to them. Like the character, Neo, played by Keeanu Reeves in The Matrix, we are often given the choice to take the blue pill or the red pill. The blue pill allows you to remain in your safe little world. Taking the red pill, well, that opens a Pandora’s Box.
For me, that moment came when my normally developing eighteen-month-old son, Ben, went mute after his vaccinations. His sister, Jacqueline already had autism and seizures, which we later linked to her six-month round of shots. With her, we didn’t know. With Ben, it was absolutely clear what had happened. Ben was my red pill. After putting him on the gluten/casein free diet he came back to us. My daughter is still very severely impaired. Because of my children, I became a warrior.
In 2009 I stumbled across an interview Dr. Judy Mikovits had given in a television show in Nevada called Nevada Newsmakers. Mikovits was talking about the publication of her article in the journal Science which showed that a recently discovered retrovirus, XMRV (xenotropic murine leukemia virus related virus) had been found in 67% of chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) patients and at 3.75% in healthy patients.
Then she started talking about a potential link to autism, as they had done some early research into the question.
A decade before the US Public Health Service (PHS) and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) made a joint public statement vowing to remove the mercury preservative Thimerosal from vaccines (circa 1999), I was trying to find the science behind the recommendation to give newborns the Hep B vaccine (more about that later).
The interesting thing about that unprecedented declaration by the PHS and the AAP was that there was no public pressure to make that announcement.
There were no protests, letter writing campaigns, distraught mothers of autistic children camping out at AAP headquarters….so, what precipitated this announcement, as shown below, From Pediatrics Sep 1999:
You are allowing your city to be sprayed with pesticides to kill mosquitoes cause they carry a virus that has never been proven to be the cause of microcephaly in Brazil?
You know what is going to happen?
Cases of microcephaly are going to happen and health authorities will say, “See… Zika is in New York and Zika causes microcephaly.” Then they will spray you more and there will be even more microcephaly.
Two larvicides, Altosid and Bacillus thuringiensis israelensis (BTI), are being sprayed in NYC to kill mosquitoes suspected of carrying the Zika virus, which the CDC has confirmed (without evidence) causes microcephaly.
Note from Tim Bolen – A good many of our readers are from the “patient” side of the medical/healthcare equation. But, for instance, there are those of us that have spent our careers on both sides of that practitioner/patient situation. Health Professionals that can deal, successfully, with problems like Autism (Vaccine Damage), need a much higher level of protection – because the medical/health system frowns on cutting-edge innovation in health care. My friend attorney Rick Jaffe has dealt with those challenges, successfully, for years.
So, I am going to give all of you a glimpse of what goes on, legally, behind the scenes, to protect cutting edge practitioners, with some articles that would normally just go out to those hundred thousand or so of cutting-edge practitioners.
I think you will find it all very interesting…
Texas Medical Board (TMB) personnel face damage claim for illegally trying to search and seize medical records.
by Richard Jaffe JD
In the late 1980s, my New York law firm did some work for Robert Atkins involving the New York medical board, (aka the Office of Professional Medical Conduct). The board wanted the records of a number of his ozone therapy patients. The patients didn’t want their records released, so Bob Atkins hired our firm to try to quash the subpoena.
We made precedent, but not in a good way. The New York appellate court ruled against us and held that the board has a right to medical records, even over the objection of the patient. In virtually every state, with some variations, a medical board can obtain patient medical records in the absence of patient consent and despite HIPAA. (The one exception is California where if the patient doesn’t want his or her records released, the medical board has to go to court to convince a judge that there is good cause for releasing the records. I am doing one of those cases right now.)
How this usually shakes out is that a physician receives a letter from the board about a complaint and asks for medical records. The letter will also usually include a subpoena and a business records affidavit form so that the medical records can be admissible in an administrative proceeding. The board’s letter usually gives the physician a few weeks to respond and turn-over the records.
I am not a lawyer, but it helps to know a few good ones, especially one as knowledgeable as Jim Moody. His take on the CDC is that it is pointless to get them to admit to what they have already, in fact, “conceded” that vaccines cause autism.
Over and over again they have conceded vaccines cause autism, and they have further conceded that research on vaccine safety is inadequate. Having said that, Mr. Moody points out that it is the lies and pseudo-science that the CDC pumps out that just keeps getting louder and louder to drown out what they will quietly concede behind closed doors or in stealthy conferences.
While most of the public is unaware is something called the “Vaccine Court,” beginning in 1990 they have paid reparations for children that could prove vaccines caused their autism and the sum has totaled hundreds of millions of dollars. Some of these more recent cases have made the national news, such as the case of Hannah Polling. Continue reading CDC – Stop lying about what you have already admitted
