The Train Wreck of “Autism Awareness Month…”

The Great Wound in Our Body Politic…

By Kent Heckenlively, JD

I’m not good at hypocrisy.  It’s why I’m not a good person to be a part of large organizations which would require me to shut my eyes to bad things. (Which at some point, most large organizations require one to do.)  Telling lies or concealing even a small portion of the truth makes me physically ill.

Give me a choice between the lonely path of truth or the friendly embrace of a group of beautiful liars and I know which road I will take every time.

It’s difficult for me to be a Catholic these days.  Why?  Through high school and college I actively considered joining a religious order of teaching brothers.  Imagine my surprise years later when it was publicly revealed that many of the Brothers I knew had participated in the cover-up of sexual abuse of some friends of mine.  These were the men of God who were supposed to be showing me what the Good Lord wanted?

And so I consider the absolute train wreck which is “Autism Awareness Month.”

It’s a little like having “Child Sexual Abuse Awareness Month” without going after the pedophiles.  It’s like saying we acknowledge the pain of those who were abused, but refusing to hunt and prosecute those who commit such atrocities.

In my books, PLAGUE and INOCULATED I have considered the question of why science has closed its eyes to the diseases of chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) and autism.  It’s difficult to honestly investigate a problem, when you are part of the problem.

It’s clear to me from my research that in the late 1990s and early 2000s that the scientific establishment in this country did not believe autism was linked to vaccinations.  Then they did the research.

First there was the Verstraeten study which showed a clear link between the number of vaccinations and the development of conditions like autism.  This resulted in the now infamous Simpsonwood Conference in June of 2000 in which the decision was made by leading government, industry, and university researchers to conceal evidence of this risk of harm.

This was followed by the CDC’s own study looking at the question of whether earlier administration of the measles-mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine was linked to the development of autism.  When the CDC found a link, especially among African-American males and normally-developing children, they decided to bury it.  Only through the evidence provided by the whistle-blower, Dr. William Thompson, do we know about these crimes.

The Thompson evidence was turned into the great documentary film, VAXXED: From Cover-up to Catastrophe.  I was able to access these same documents from the Office of US Congressman, William Posey, to write my book, INOCULATED: How Science Lost Its Soul in Autism.

None of these events should be a surprise when one considers the 1986 NATIONAL CHILDHOOD VACCINE INJURY ACT which REMOVED ALL LIABILITY FOR INJURY OR DEATH FROM CHILDHOOD VACCINES.

Would top government officials cover up harm to children?

Would high officials in the Catholic Church cover up the crimes of pedophile priests?

Would military officials cover up the harm the chemical Agent Orange did to our troops in the Vietnam War?

It’s really a two-fer, because some of the same officials at the Centers for Disease Control, like Colleen Boyle, were involved in both covering-up evidence for the harm from Agent Orange and childhood vaccines.

There must be some special medal for such service, say, “The Order of the Deep State, Enemy of Humanity” award.

Wherever there is secrecy, there will be the potential for horrible corruption.  Medicine and religion have both created their own caste of sacred infallible figures, and those who question their practices are similarly labeled as heretics.

Maybe it’s understandable why the Catholic Church can’t root out the pedophile priests and brothers in their ranks.  Maybe it’s understandable why medicine can’t root out the corrupt science which is harming so many in our society.

“Yes, Kent, you are right about things,” people will tell me, “but you simply need to understand this is the way organizations act.”

Okay, then why am I the bad guy for pointing out these problems?  If anything, I am contributing to the long-term health of these organizations or disciplines.  I am like a surgeon, identifying the disease, and whether I am cutting it out, or transforming it through “natural healing” therapies, I am making the patient better.

I want the Catholic Church to be an organization worthy of the respect of believers and non-believers.  I want science to actually alleviate human suffering, rather than being the cause of so much of it.

Tim Bolen, the Publisher of the BolenReport, has asked me as an “Autism Parent” to speak authentically about what it’s like to live with autism on a daily basis.

It’s a complicated request.  I believe the reality of living with a child with severe autism would be overwhelming to the vast majority of potential readers.

However, I want to give you a vision of what I believe autism is, and how it relates to so much of what is going on in our world.

I believe that what we call “health” is simply all parts of the body working in harmony with each other.  I believe that the toxins man has created, from pesticides like glyphosate, to the aborted human fetal tissue and animal tissue along with the toxic soup of chemicals in vaccines, and pollution have created an environment in which the body systems of so many young people shut down in a defensive mode to protect themselves from the perceived threat.

I do not see the hand of God in the mess we have made of the world.  However, I am unshakable in the belief that we what have done wrong, can be made right.

I have written often about the work of Dr. Robert Naviaux, of the University of California, San Diego, which is consistent with this line of argument.

I think the bodies of these children are doing their best to survive in this toxic world we have created.  I believe that when you look at the gastro-intestinal problems, the allergies, the patterns of abnormal thinking present in so much of our supposedly healthy population you will see that those with autism are just the most severely affected.

How do we fix it?

A couple prosecutions for covering up evidence at the Centers for Disease Control would probably be a good start.

Call Dr. William Thompson, the CDC whistle-blower, to testify about his allegations of data destruction about the MMR vaccine, before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

Repeal the 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act.

Fund and listen to people like Dr. Robert Naviaux at the University of California, San Diego, who with their brilliant minds and cutting-edge research could probably SOLVE this problem COMPLETELY IN 2 TO 3 YEARS.

Give me ten minutes in the Oval Office with President Trump and we’ll make more progress than we have in the past two decades.

I believe that in this life we succeed together, or we suffer together, until the embrace of death removes us from all this pain.

I want you to understand I do not rage against the medical establishment and the cowardice of parents who conceal their knowledge of vaccine injury because it gives me any pleasure.

I rage because I believe with all my heart that on the other side of that paralyzing fear is a wonderful future of scientific progress to make the lives of humanity a true paradise.

I want to walk down that road of truth and healing with all of you someday.

    “The medical profession is being bought by the pharmaceutical industry, not only in terms of the practice of medicine, but also in terms of teaching and research.

    The academic institutions of this country are allowing themselves to be the paid agents of the pharmaceutical industry. I think it’s disgraceful.”

    Failures of Autism Speaks
    “…they supported the Combating Autism Act that put zero dollars towards environmental causation of autism. When it was reauthorized in 2014, they went along with renaming it the Autism CARES ACT, as if autism was some sort of benevolent actor. They are heavily influenced by the insurance industry. The lobbying company they hire to pass these bills (Manatt) represents over 180 HMO’s.
    Autism Speaks has been completely missing in action in response to “educational reform” which in many places has gutted special education and now requires the passing of multiple standardized tests in order to graduate from high school, making the situation of people with autism related learning disabilities far worse.”

  2. Instead of calling it “Autism Awareness Month.” We should call it bought and paid for whores of the Congress and, CDC & FDA month!

    I’m glad your bringing up the point of Roundup in the vaccines. Now Dicamba is in the vaccines, and soon 2,4-D (Agent Orange without the dioxin). This with the rat poison, embalming fluid, aluminum, mercury, and the other toxic shit they throw in those vaccines makes the problems today obvious to those that actually look even a little bit into vaccines.

    3 Words.

    To people I consider friends, I say chemicals! chemicals! chemicals! Those I don’t know I say, Chemicals stupid! Chemicals!

    Human beings are an organic creatures, and were jacking our kids up with genetically modified organisms, organic and inorganic toxins. It’s our fault for being lemmings, and letting the department of brain washing telling us we have to jack our kids up with this shit to get public paid for brain washing.

    Thanks to Tim Bolens, I now know I had the Live Simian Virus 40 in my Polio Sugar cube (1959). This made me look deeper into vaccines, as I had a ADHD step son. I wish I knew 24 years ago what I know now! We had only a couple vaccines required when I was a kid. What is it today? Over 40 for sure!

    I know of the big step up in vaccine schedual in 1988. My step son was born in 1989, and step daughter was born in 1987. What was what we were told is an anomaly then, is obvious as hell to me now.

    I do know Trump is well aware of the vaccine issue. I hate to agree with that sweat hog Rosie, but I do think Barron has a form of autism. He made RFK Jr. in charge of looking into vaccines. Excellent choice in my book. Bobby made his recommendations a week or two ago to congress.

    I know it seems that the Donald is going slow on this, but he was handed a big shit sandwich, and vaccines are on the back burner now. But first he must break the “DEEP STATE” ! They use pedophilia to control congress, which at least 1/3 in congress are controlled this way. I believe he is busting the “Deep State. And to get anywhere we need to break them chains that are controlling us.

    The Donald did put up a web site where people can put up a video about there personal horror stories about vaccines. I think I posted that site here a week or two ago.

    I talked to one of my bought and paid for whores about Dr. Thompson blowing the whistle. She gave us the Monsanto Safe Food Act of 2010. The idiot that answered her phone (Amy Klobuchar’s office) could only say “Fake News” to my questions and statements. I picture a vaccine damaged, pimply faced boy with an IQ of about 85, and I think I’m being nice.

    I just hope people know were really kicking some serious ass now! Time for the full court press!! Call your whores and show no respect! YES like Rodney Dangerfield! You’ve got to earn it to get it!

    I hope people here can support Veterans for Child Rescue! These guys are working with other groups all over the planet to break up these pedophile rings. The quicker we get these sicko’s out of action, the quicker we can move forward in the name of humanity!


    Ralph, give my deepest sympathies to Rima. Bert was a hero and a roll model to me. I wish I knew sooner, but you know how hacks do things. I’m sure Bert’s proud to see the progress we’ve made in the last few months. God bless you all.
