Tales from The Rabbit Hole…
Is this Part 1 in “Tales from The Rabbit Hole”? I’m not sure, I think past posts qualify for that designation. This is kind of a meta post, where I’ve observed a connection between a couple of recent blog posts, by Levi Quackenboss and JB Handley.
So open your tray table and tilt your seat back while I take you on a short journey connecting the dots.
Done Playing Nice
In Levi’s recent post, “Done playing nice” she (or is it he?) echoes a call to action by an individual (s)he declines to name:
“Here’s the plan: if you’ve got a kid who became autistic, allergic, epileptic, or diabetic after childhood vaccines, you’ve got to file a complaint against that doctor. Gone are the days of being told it was a coincidence. No more will we quietly find a like-minded physician and transfer care. Today is the day to take the first step to standing up and saying, “What happened to my child was unacceptable, and it’s time they answer for it.”
The basic idea is to flood medical boards across the nation with complaints against doctors for their failures to achieve informed consent when vaccinating your children. Before I drill down into the beauty of this tactic, let me digress for a second here, to recall a bumper sticker I saw some 25 or so years ago while driving up the 101 near Morro Bay, CA:
“BUREAUCRACY: THE PROCESS OF CONVERTING ENERGY INTO SOLID WASTE”
Got that? The machine comes pre-built with features that amplify your rage against it.
Filing these complaints is an absolutely brilliant asymmetric tactic.
For the cost of about 1-2 hours of a parent’s time filing the complaint, the State has to expend many more hours researching the complaint, investigating the doctor, discussing it at meetings with various staffers, managers and directors, going through the decision-making process to proceed with charges, or refer it somewhere else, or not.
And let’s hope their procedures include extra helpings of bureaucracy that sensible people cannot possibly envision.
But wait! There’s more… The California Medical Board is a “Specially Funded” entity. (See inset) That means funding for their employees comes only from license fees and fines imposed against doctors.
They have no access to state funds, there is no budgetary discretion. They get what they get, and when they run out, they have to furlough employees and shut down offices. It is possible to bleed this government agency dry.
PS, in the run up to SB 277, the CMB removed all mention of their funding source from their 2014-2015 annual report. I’ll bet you a nickel, once their operatives discover this post, the 2012-2013 report is removed from their site.
At the very least, Medical Boards will no longer be able to deny vaccine injury. At best, that doctor who injured or killed your child absent proper informed consent might be hauled in front of their local Medical Board and have to defend their actions. Let those doctors who blindly support the Pharmaceutical Industrial Complex, whilst collecting their bonus for fully vaccinating children, feel the chilling effects for a change. Which is my segue into that second post…
Pediatricians are being bribed to over-vaccinate your child
The second article by JB Handley, “Heads up parents: Pediatricians are being bribed to over-vaccinate your child” exposes the practice of insurance companies paying an all-or-nothing bonus to pediatricians for fully vaccinating something like 63% of their patients. Sounds incredible? Let me Google that for you. In the search results, you can see there are numerous documents right on the web servers of numerous insurance providers that have a variation of this kind of compensation program. (Please pardon the snark of the website that opens when you click in)
So what is my point?
I know. You’re all like “We already know all this!”. I warned you at the beginning this was a meta post. Between these two posts, I see an idea for an action. If you see it as your call to action, AWESOME!
Have you been kicked to the curb by your pediatrician for refusing to vaccinate your child? Or for choosing fewer vaccines or a slower vaccination plan? Here’s your opportunity to turn the tables. As Handley points out, such a practice goes against the guidance provided by more than a couple of Medical Institutions.
I’m no lawyer and I don’t hand out legal advice, but it seems to me, given these circumstances, any doctor refusing to serve a child whose parents refuse vaccines is choosing money over care, an ethically questionable choice.
Within this movement, we all know at least one parent who has been booted from a practice in order to line the wallet of their former doctor. If it isn’t you, your job is to share this with them.
If this is you, you can get started on your complaint right here (CA Residents). Readers in other states, please don’t make me Google that for you. Some sample allegations you might raise:
- Ethical concerns that this insurance payola scheme prioritizes monetary gain over providing care.
- Concerns about the legality and ethics of these kinds of payola schemes.
- Ethical concerns your doctor cannot maintain objectivity and put your child first when faced with the potential of losing a bonus worth hundreds of thousands of dollars.
- Your Medical Board Complaint site may provide additional ideas about the types of complaints you can present.
If you feel I missed something, please post your ideas in the comments below.
I might be right and I might be wrong. But what’s the harm in engaging the bureaucracy of your state’s medical board in resolving the question?
Update Based on input from comments, I wrote a follow up post: “Before you Complain About Your Doctor to the State Medical Board…”

Great post! Bleed ’em dry.
Alan, We need to go further and cut off the money faucet to pediatricians completely. The way to do that is to file bills in each state, amending that state’s medical practice code to make it illegal for doctors to receive incentive payments of any kind for prescribing any medication or vaccine. Just watch them squirm while they try to oppose that! The PR opportunities are almost endless!
My complaint to CMA is about the false information I received when I sought AB2109, opt- out counseling. Our pediatrician’s so called accurate information:
1. Wakefield’s work was found fraudulent. See here
2. Vaccinated vs. unvaccinated long term health outcome study has been done.
3. The double-blind placebo safety studies are done.
Hmm – I wonder where Levi Quackenboss got that idea??!! Maybe from some CA groups that posted a requested to “Neglect Report” on FB (https://www.facebook.com/neglectreport/) on September 12th two days before Levi’s post!
But I would add to the above that anyone who has had any of the following should report:
If your doctor has refused to write a medical exemption for your child file a REPORT on that doctor.
If your doctor has refused to report and chart adverse reactions that your child has had to vaccines file a REPORT on that doctor.
If your doctor has thrown you out of their practice because your child is not up to date on vaccines file a REPORT on that doctor.
Go here to file a REPORT on your doctor (all 50 states are listed on this document)
Please note, you can file anonymously if you are not comfortable giving your information but it is better if you can and do file with your information in the REPORT.
Also if you or your child has suffered vaccine injury please visit http://reportvaccineinjury.com/ so you can REPORT vaccine injury at http://reportvaccineinjury.info If you or your child has suffered vaccine injury share your story here vaccineinjuryisreal.com
I am sure that my husband was perfectly fit and healthy until he was given the Hep B jab for his job and a Medical and Dental Engineer, was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis and his consultant admitted I could have triggered it – we did a yellow card, got through 4 solicitors, each being bought off – keep it under wraps for GSK! After 20 very, very painful years he is now dead at 70 – he had no retirement to enjoy after serving 27 years in the Army before training as a Medical & Dental Engineer! Disgraceful, I have waived a banner outside Parliament! Everyone is frightened of drug companies as they are ruthless people. And now they are putting Hep B into babies!!
YES! The exemption from tort liability written into the VICP does not apply to complaints to the state medical boards. Great approach. For at least 100 years, the law has been clear: it is malpractice, and assault and battery, for a physician to engage in a medical intervention without Informed Consent.
“Every human being of adult years and sound mind has a right to determine what shall be done with his own body; and a surgeon who performs an operation without his patient’s consent commits an assault for which he is liable in damages.” – Schloendorff v. Society of New York Hosp.,105 N.E. 92, 93 (N.Y. 1914)
Even a “…diminished expectation of privacy does not diminish the… privacy interest in preventing a government agent from piercing the… skin. And though a blood test conducted in a medical setting by trained personnel is less intrusive than other bodily invasions, this Court has never retreated from its recognition that any compelled intrusion into the human body implicates significant, constitutionally protected privacy interests…” – Missouri vs McNeely, 569 US _ (2013)
Right now, however, the CDC has a pending Regulation that explicitly overrides Informed Consent. We have less than a month to stop it, here: http://tinyurl.com/InformedConsentProtection — please share widely!
How are these incentive schemes rewarding the usage of certain products not a violation of the Stark act? Should complaints be lodged with the Insurance Commissioner, and State Attorney General?
“Anti-Kickback Statute [42 U.S.C. § 1320a-7b(b)]
The AKS is a criminal law that prohibits the knowing and willful payment of “remuneration” to induce or reward patient referrals or the generation of business involving any item or service payable by the Federal health care programs (e.g., drugs, supplies, or health care services for Medicare or Medicaid patients). “
Peter McCarthy: Great idea!
The AMA and the AAP get a large portion of their funding directly from Pharma companies – conflict of interest. And their mouthpieces say whatever they are told to say – dereliction of duty of medical care. Who are the heads of those organizations who accepted the money ? Can we have these groups audited so that we can follow the money ?
Wow. That Anti-kickback rule cited above provides for “$50,000 per kickback plus three times the amount of the remuneration.” What the hell makes them think this isn’t a kickback?
If it walks like a duck and talks like a duck it’s probably a duck.
I really love all you dirty tricksters! With all your clever thinking. It’s time for us to take the distractions to them.
Thanks for your input, I’m folding what I can into a follow-up post and will use the rest of it for future article ideas.
When I saw the original post by Quackenboss, my first thought was “BRILLIANT” – the trick – we have got to get enough parents in every state to overwhelm their state’s medical boards, who, if I am not mistaken, are charged with the task of protecting the CONSUMER against unethical, corrupt, or fraudulent medical practices.
There could be a backlash against alternative practitioners, however, especially those already involved in the vaccine injury movement in some way. Most medical boards only need one “anonymous complaint” against anyone for portending to “practice medicine without a license” to make that practitioner’s life pure hell, if not put them out of business entirely. And that includes MDs who are daring to step out into the alternatives world to help the kids.
BUT, I like the idea. And will quietly (or not so quietly) suggest that parents do exactly that.
The California law mandating vaccinations is a violation of our constitution and our right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. It is an illegal law and therefore cannot be enforced. If enforced, the people of California should bring a class action lawsuit against the governor and every politician who signed the illegal law. You need to go after everything they own, leaving them penny-less. All vaccinations have been scientifically proven to be extremely dangerous and completely useless as far as preventing disease is concerned.
