The Great Wound in Our Body Politic…
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.
Kent’s book PLAGUE was released by Skyhorse Publishing in 2014 and is now available in paperback. Skyhorse also publishes the work of Mo Yan, the 2012 recipient of the Nobel Prize in literature.
The book is co-authored with Judy Mikovits PhD. It is an indictment of the “Fake Science” we find so prevalent in the US.
