In a new development involving a press release from congressman Bill Posey who has called out the CDC, the link between autism and vaccines takes another step closer to truth.
To begin, and I truly believe this is incredibly important to embrace, one of the biggest issues we have with the vaccine debate and link to autism is the lack of level headedness on both sides of the coin. Human ego has led us to fight each other on a very serious and real issue as opposed to coming together and figuring out what the best course of action is. On one side, anti-vaxers are calling anyone who uses vaccines ‘stupid’ while on the other side pro-vaxers are calling anyone who doesn’t stupid and conspiracy theorists. This has to stop. Plain a simple.
There have been a number of studies done that conclude a link between autism and vaccines, and there have been some that show no link. In this new development, we are finding out that the studies that show no link may have been fabricated by one of the CDC’s main individuals involved in research. As many who perform studies know, it isn’t difficult to set up a study to get the result you are looking for. Considering the CDC has failed to answer a direct question about vaccines and autism, one that would involve a very basic study comparing vaccines rates and autism rates, one could assume quite easily that the CDC is refusing to do this research and answer these questions because the research would reveal a link right away.
“I asked her a very direct question. ‘Have you done a study comparing autism rates in vaccinated vs. unvaccinated children?…’ She started telling us about everything she’s done …After she wasted three minutes, I cut her off and I demanded that she answer the question. And then, only then, did she admit that the federal government has never done that very simple, fundamental, basic study.” U.S. Congressman Bill Posey
In the press release Posey also speaks of an individual named Thorsen who was involved in fishy financial arrangements with the CDC where he would be involved in ‘cooking’ the research to tell a certain story while avoiding another.
“He was closely tied to the CDC’s top vaccine safety researchers… as long as Thorsen was cooking the books to produce the results they wanted, they didn’t care whether the studies were valid or how much money was being siphoned off the top…”
Interestingly Bill Posey has revealed that the CDC has also set up an orchestrated campaign to shape public opinion about vaccines. One of their biggest moves is to go online where information isn’t controlled and spin to fit the goals and agendas of large corporations. The campaign attacks bloggers and websites, even people who question vaccines at all, they intend to vilify them, make them feel stupid, and turn others against them.
Instead of simply answering questions and doing proper research, Posey’s claims suggest the CDC has chosen to avoid real questions and simply attack those who question things while turning the regular public on people who do question, creating fights and arguments online. Something we have seen all too much here at CE. Now given the mis-information people use to fight each other is part of a CDC campaign, it really makes their attempt to keep this hidden seem even more intense.
Below is a press release that was sent out regarding Bill Posey’s statements as he spoke to Brian Hooker, PhD, PE, about the CDC and their research practices. Please read this carefully.
U.S. Congressman Compares Corruption in CDC’s Vaccine Safety Studies to SEC’s Handling of Bernie Madoff Scandal
Congressman Bill Posey Has Strong Words for Government Agency. Concludes: “I think the CDC Should Be Investigated.”
Watchung, New Jersey, April 16, 2014. In an April 8 interview on AutismOne’s A Conversation of Hope radio show, Congressman Bill Posey’s strong resolve and demands for transparency were evident as he discussed the Center for Disease Control (CDC)’s handling of vaccine safety studies which affect “our most precious resource in our nation — our children.” The 30-minute interview, conducted by vaccine industry watchdog, PhD biochemist Brian Hooker, delves into what Posey called “the incestuous relationship between the public health community and the vaccine makers and public officials.”
The Florida legislator, known as “Mr. Accountabililty,” did not mince words when criticizing current and past CDC officials including indicted fraudster Dr. Poul Thorsen; CDC director turned Merck Vaccine President Dr. Julie Gerberding; and
the agency’s current spokesperson regarding autism and vaccines, Dr. Coleen Boyle.
On Thorsen, Posey said “If you read through the emails and learned about the meetings and the financial arrangement this crook had with the CDC, it will make you absolutely sick to your stomach. This was no casual researcher way down the line. This is the CDC’s key man in Denmark. He was closely tied to the CDC’s top vaccine safety researchers… as long as Thorsen was cooking the books to produce the results they wanted, they didn’t care whether the studies were valid or how much money was being siphoned off the top…It’s like the Security and Exchange Commission and Bernie Madoff. But it’s worse because we’re talking about someone who basically stole money that was supposed to be used to improve the health and safety of our most vulnerable in our society — our young babies.”
Dr. Hooker remarked that Thorsen had collaborated with the CDC on 36 papers, not just one paper as claimed by Dr. Boyle, and that the agency refused to investigate studies exonerating vaccines’ role in causing autism following his indictment on wire fraud and money laundering. Posey described Boyle as “intentionally evasive,” in his questioning of her at a Congressional hearing. ”I asked her a very direct question. ‘Have you done a study comparing autism rates in vaccinated vs. unvaccinated children?…’ She started telling us about everything she’s done …After she wasted three minutes, I cut her off and I demanded that she answer the question. And then, only then, did she admit that the federal government has never done that very simple, fundamental, basic study.”
About Boyle’s denial of a true increase in autism, Posey said, “I know we have an autism epidemic. You know it. She knows it. She knows we know it. But for some reason they refuse to acknowledge it publicly.” Regarding Boyle’s assertion that the increase is due to better diagnosing, Posey said, “I don’t think anybody that’s intellectually honest with this issue can begin to fathom that lame excuse that she uses.” He also described an orchestrated campaign on behalf of the CDC and vaccine industry: “people who do all the blogging and shredding anyone who dares question the unaccountable bureaucrats.” He spoke of “their little media network [that will] twist the truth to disparage, to malign, to vilify, to denigrate anybody who wants any kind of accountability….”
Posey then discussed his co-sponsorship with Rep. Carolyn Maloney of the Vaccine Safety Study Act. He said the proposed legislation would compel the government to conduct a retrospective vaccinated vs. unvaccinated study of health outcomes. He felt it could be done with “accountability and direct oversight of the government”
In his closing remarks, Posey said, “The CDC can’t be trusted regarding investigating vaccine safety. Huge conflict of interest. I think the CDC should be investigated.”
Barry Segal, founder of Focus Autism, which sponsors Dr. Hooker’s investigative research, called the interview “a game changer.”
Representative Bill Posey is serving his third term in Florida’s 8th Congressional District. He serves on the Committee for Science, Space and Technology. He was instrumental in the release of CDC documents regarding a link between vaccines and autism. These papers are now being analyzed by several researchers, including Dr. Brian Hooker.
Brian Hooker, PhD, PE, has 15 years experience in the field of bioengineering and is an associate professor at Simpson University where he specializes in biology and chemistry. His over 50 science and engineering papers have been published in internationally recognized, peer-reviewed journals. Dr. Hooker has a son, aged 16, who developed normally but then regressed into autism after receiving Thimerosal (mercury-containing) vaccines.
