A few days ago I predicted massive media coverage of a major scandal at the CDC involving some of their highest level scientists. I was wrong. The mainline media, including conservatives, refused to deal with the subject! Of course, big, big money is involved and money corrupts everything and a large percent of television commercials are purchased by Big Pharma. The vaccine business alone amounts to 52 billion dollars per year. With the plethora of social media the main stream media will be forced to deal with the scandal sooner or later.
If the corruption charges are true as preliminary facts appear to support, the explosion will be nuclear! The CDC’s historic reaction to criticism has been to mock, malign, and manipulate while staying far from the truth. The obvious truth is that an increasing number of children are afflicted with autism and other neurological disorders. Moreover, a whistleblower at the CDC has admitted he lied along with other authors in a CDC study that was cooked to assure parents that there is no connection with early MMR vaccinations and autism. The study actually revealed that there is danger is such vaccinations!
The fallout, when the explosion occurs, will mean disgrace, loss of jobs, and maybe pokey time for top scientists! Almost everyone reacts the same in such circumstances: hunker down–deny, defer, deviate, and distort. Do anything to obfuscate the truth.
This is not a new issue. A longtime friend of mine and former, powerful U.S. Congressman held hearings on the subject of childhood vaccinations in 2001 and 2002 and internationally exposed the issue. He told the media and the members of his committee of his own once healthy grandson, who, following multiple shots ran in circles, banged his head on furniture, screamed for hours, and refused to speak or look anyone in the eye. Many experts also testified of their experiences with vaccinations and autism. Congressman Burton is a hero to all parents with autistic children.
I wrote a lengthy article in 2006 titled “Should Children be Vaccinated?” that dealt with the charge that vaccinations, especially the MMR and all mercury-laden vaccines could be the cause of autism and other neurological disorders in babies. I did not tell parents to refuse vaccinations but to know the facts and ask some questions of their pediatrician. But then, most physicians don’t want to be questioned about anything and most patients are afraid to ask, let alone demand, anything from medical personnel.
My concern was not to be critical of vaccinations per se but to ask some pertinent questions: does the vaccine contain mercury and can small children’s fragile system handle many powerful shots? I contended that “too much too soon” can destroy some children. Not all children are at risk but many are. Are the children sick? Have they been sick recently? Have they had reactions to previous shots? Is their immune system weak? Do they have allergies?
The issue still is: does the MMR vaccination in young children result in autism and other diseases? The charge is that the three-shot “jabs” resulted in autism among black children. The CDC and their lackeys at the major pharmaceutical companies declared authoritatively “No.” But then what would you expect?
The whistleblower and others declare that the CDC’s actions are duplicitous, dangerous, even deadly. And innocent children are paying the price. Furthermore, the CDC has deliberately cooked the books to continue increasing the number of “required” vaccinations of helpless children.
It is interesting that the CDC motto is “To save lives and protect” and there is no doubt that they have done much good in some areas of health. However, government funding is limited and many billion-dollar pharmaceutical companies are willing to pour billions of dollars into research (as long as it isn’t critical of their drugs) and to hire retiring CDC officials, so the farce goes on and on. One example is Dr. Julie Gerberding who was director of the CDC and is now President of Merck’s vaccine division. Sounds like shocking, scandalous, and sordid incest to me!
To those who affirm that no federal agency could be so careless, calloused, and corrupt, I remind them of the infamous Tuskegee syphilis study that our government conducted on black men from 1932 to 1972. Our government permitted men to die the horrible death from syphilis even after penicillin had been developed! Men from Macon County, Alabama thought they were getting free government health care when they were guinea pigs so the “experts” could observe the progression of untreated syphilis. They saw it and 399 men died without ever getting treatment for syphilis. They did get free burial insurance!
So much for a caring, concerned, and compassionate government.
Fact, Fraud or Faith?

Only an uninformed fanatic says that evolution or creation can be proved scientifically. Christians believe in creationism because we believe in the veracity of the Bible but we also have scientific evidence to support our position. In every debate I’ve had with evolutionary scientists, the arrogant, asinine accusation is made, “Well, evolution is scientific while creationism is religion.” Evolution is about as scientific as a voodoo rooster plucking ceremony in Haiti. Almost.
