If you are of a certain age and were ever interested in politics you probably went through a stage where you read everything you possibly could about Senator Robert Kennedy. I know I did. I still do.
The reason Robert Kennedy, Sr. continues to attract and inspire us is because he demonstrated a continuing capacity to learn. This was made clear to me in a recent book, Bobby Kennedy: The Making of a Liberal Icon by Larry Tye. Kennedy demonstrated that rare trait in a politician of being moved by the times and circumstances in which he lived.
This same trait has been shown by his son, Robert Kennedy, Jr., in his crusade to clean up our waterways from mercury, and now with his greater mission of protecting children from massive corruption at the Centers for Disease Control regarding vaccines and autism.
Heroes still live among us.
You don’t have to be interested in politics to feel like you know Robert De Niro. You just have to be living on planet Earth. From the Godfather movies to Goodfellas, Awakenings, and his comedic turns in movies like Meet the Parents, De Niro is our consummate tough guy, and as the years have passed, he seems almost like a conscience for the world.
Supporting the two men in a ‘war room’ nearby were Del Bigtree, the producer of VAXXED: From Cover-up to Catastrophe, autism activist, Becky Estepp, Dr. Brian Hooker, Lynne Redwood, and many others. One participant, Jimmy said “Thank you, Bobby Kennedy. Thank you Bob De Niro, you are kicking some serious ass out there.”
These two amazing men have joined forces and at the National Press Club in Washington D.C.
Before their talk they fielded more than 20 interviews with local and national and local media.
In an interview prior to their talk at the National Press Club, De Niro explained how he came to be part of this project. He explained how the documentary VAXXED, caused such an uproar when it was accepted at the Tribeca Film Festival and that because of the controversy he made the decision to pull the film.
But that wasn’t the end of the story for Di Niro.
He came to know Robert Kennedy, Jr. and viewed other films, like Trace Amounts, and became convinced that more needed to be done. He said that more research needed to be done on vaccines, and noted that vaccines do not get the same type of safety testing as other pharmaceutical products.
Kennedy stepped in next, noting the great danger of mercury in vaccines, noting that 48 million flu shots filled with mercury are given to pregnant women each year, and that this is certainly behind the rise in conditions like autism, allergies, and auto-immune diseases.
Kennedy went on to say that he considered this to be journalistic malpractice, since journalists were not aggressively challenging the Centers for Disease Control and so he had a challenge. Kennedy was offering any journalist $100,000 if they could produce a single study showing that the injection of mercury into children was safe. He stated that his goal was to create an open public discussion on this issue.
Another member of the group was Nico La Hood, the district attorney for Houston, Texas. In a statement released earlier he said, “Many challengers say to me, ‘correlation is not causation.’ In my world, correlation means investigation. But to them, correlation means ignorance. That makes no sense to me. What is everyone afraid of? Let’s follow the evidence wherever it leads.”
Kennedy, De Niro, and La Hood were joined at the National Press Club by television news reporter and host of the show, Full Measure, Sharyl Attkisson. She opened the press conference by showing a clip from former head of the National Institutes of Health, Dr. Bernadine Healy, saying that the question of vaccines and autism has not been asked and answered, and that researchers were scared of investigating the issue.
Now, to the meat of the issue…
After Attkisson, Kennedy kicked off discussion by telling how he came to this issue. He’d been suing power companies for the emission of mercury by coal-fired power plants and the effect they were having on fish populations. As he spoke across the country on this issue, he talked about how a group of mothers of vaccine-injured autism kept talking to him about mercury in the vaccines. He talked about 240 studies that show the damage mercury can cause and is neurotoxic to our children. These studies show that vaccines are linked to the cascade of neuro-developmental problems in our children.
He said the CDC shows that 43% of our children have some form of chronic disease. This epidemic started in 1989 according to CDC.
“If it’s not the thimerosal in vaccines, then what is it?” Kennedy said is the question journalists need to be asking. Kennedy said that while there are a number of potential chemicals which may also be involved, but thimerosal provides the best explanation.
Kennedy said there are four different studies which say that the CDC is a cesspool of corruption.
The CDC owns or co-owns 56 different vaccine patents. The CDC has been telling reporters that the studies are out there, but no journalist has ever seen them. Journalists are not looking at what the studies actually say.
After asking for stories from the community, within a few hours they had more than 6,000 stories from parents that their child changed after a vaccination. Failure to look at these stories is akin to religious zealotry. It says that doctors know better what happened to their children than their parents.
Kennedy offered a $100,000 challenge to show that it is safe to inject pregnant women or infants with the levels of mercury that are currently in the flu vaccine.
Kennedy says that he has a panel of leading scientists who will judge whether the study is valid. He went onto say that democracy requires a system of checks and balances and it’s the job of journalists to challenge them.
Big Pharma is NOT our friend…
In the past few years the pharmaceutical industry has suffered more than 8 billion dollars in court costs for misuse of their products. He talked about how the pharmaceutical companies spend twice as much money lobbying Congress than the oil and gas industry. And we can’t count on lawyers, because the passage of the 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act prevents pharmaceutical companies from being sued for vaccine injuries. And now the pharmaceutical industry pays for the majority of advertising of the nightly news.
Feel free to call this group anything you want, The Avengers, Guardians of the Galaxy, X-Men, or even, The Justice League, but we have some first rate fighters on our side. Maybe we even have the new President of the United States on our side.
But these heroes can’t do it alone.
They aren’t Superman or Batman.
They are simply flesh and blood human beings who are making an immense sacrifice to do what they believe is right. And our enemy has BILLIONS of DOLLARS to spend against us, convincing the American people to remain asleep to the dangers of vaccines. But the great American people are beginning to wake up and see the wickedness and evil which has surrounded their children. And I believe they will fight.
Del Bigtree said in conclusion, “This is a victorious day. But it’s because of finding common ground, staying focused on that. This is ultimately all about our children, and then about our health because they’re going to be force-vaccinating adults as well. This is freedom hanging in the balance.”
I encourage EVERY ONE OF YOU to support their effort.
This our time to rise up. Leaders who don’t have an army won’t get very far. They have sounded the call to action.
Now it is YOUR time to answer that call!
