The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) whistleblower, alleging criminal wrongdoing on the part of his supervisors and who’s expressed deep regret about his role in helping the CDC hide data, calling it “The lowest point in my career, that I went along with that paper,â€ has been identified.
Epidemiologist, William W. Thompson, PhD broke a decade of silence over the government’s deliberate concealment of the link between the MMR vaccine (for measles, mumps, and rubella) and a dramatically increased risk of autism, particularly in African American boys.
The paper Thompson was referring to above was a February 2004 study of the MMR vaccine, which was published in the journal, ‘Pediatrics’ by three CDC scientists working in the National Immunization Program, including Thompson. The study concluded that there were â€œno significant associationsâ€ between the age at which the vaccine is administered and the incidence of â€œdevelopmental regression,â€ such as autism.
This is the study that has been invoked for the past decade by the those seeking to say there is no link between autism and vaccines, however, it is important to note that the ‘Pediatrics’ journal receives financial support from vaccine makers through advertising and direct donations.
The same month of its publication, Dr. Thompson wrote to Dr. Julie Gerberding (then director of the CDC, now director of Merck’s vaccine division – check out that revolving door, eh?), discussing his intention to present, at an Institute of Medicine meeting on vaccines and autism the following week, â€œseveral problematic resultsâ€ that the study had produced.
For the next ten years, Dr. Brian Hooker, of the Focus Autism Foundation, tried to obtain the original data from that study. This year, through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, Dr. Hooker finally received much of the data. He was also allowed to view several highly sensitive documents related to the study thanks to a request from Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA), chair of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.
After the FOIA was filed, Hooker was contacted by Dr. Thompson at the CDC, who at that time, spoke on condition of anonymity. Thompson guided Hooker to further evidence of how criminally that data was fudged, which is covered, to some extent in this NextNewsNetwork interview with Dr. Hooker.
No statement has been issued either by the American Academy of Pediatrics on whether the original study will be retracted or not, or by the CDC about Thompson’s statements. (Thompson is apparently still working there, according to Hooker). There is a rumor that a class-action lawsuit is being readied by the parents of autistic children who received the vaccine.
Earlier this year, Rep. Bill Posey (R-FL) demanded that the CDC be investigated, highlighting â€œthe incestuous relationship between the public health community and the vaccine makers and public officials,â€ the manipulation of data, and the swinging door policy between the CDC and vaccine maker Merck – all of which ensures that the autism link is never thoroughly explored. Earlier this year, the CDC was reported to have grossly exaggerated flu hospitalization figures, in order to push the flu vaccine.
So, here we go again, yet another case of a US Government regulatory agency that is not only acting like the wolf minding the chicken coop – but actively practicing genocide, to boot!
It is the timing of the release of this story that I find to be very interesting. As NextNewsNetwork host, Gary Franchi very astutely asks Dr. Hooker, “Why now?” – and also, that the focus of this particular leak involves a story affecting black children and one particular vaccine, one which has been part of standard vaccination protocols in the US since the 1950s – when Thimerosal, the mercury-based preservative used in most vaccines has also been blamed for autism, to say nothing of the insane amount of vaccines that toddlers, with immature immune systems are forced to take these days has more than tripled since I was a toddler.
When I was little, only 4 vaccines were deemed compulsory (yes, this dates me). Since, the 1980s, this amount has continuously escalated to where, today, the CDC now recommends vaccination against at least fourteen diseases. By two years of age, US children receive as many as 24 vaccine injections, and might receive up to five shots during one visit to the doctor – all of these containing the toxic mercury-based preservative, Thimerosal and administered to toddlers whose immune systems are not developed enough to cope with so much toxicity.
I have a distinct suspicion that the release NOW of the genocidal fraud and criminality of the CDC, of a vaccine which specifically harms black boys is a limited hangout, to distract from what must be countless CDC atrocities, while it also stokes more fuel for the fire for what looks like an attempt, on the part of the Federal Government to ignite a race war in the US, on the heels of the Trayvon Martin case and recent Ferguson murders. (And no wonder Kajieme Powell in Ferguson, MO was actin’ a fool)!
The US Government is doing everything it can to start WWIII or a Civil War, in order to distract interest away from the imminent demise of the dollar, due to the Final Looting of the US Treasury, which has occurred over the past two Presidential Administrations, through launching illegal wars to personally enrich crony industries which would profit from same, including the outfitting of the entire Department of Homeland Security apparatus, as well as the unsustainable social programs that are riddled with fraud, waste and abuse.
Today, the CDC still claims the MMR vaccine does not increase the risk of autism.
