Donald Trump, vaccine whistleblower?

On January 20th, 2017

Like many people, I approach the inauguration of Donald Trump as President of the US with extreme trepidation, save for one fact: his public stance on vaccination.

Among the parade of people who have been heading in and out of Trump Tower in the last months were Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and Andrew Wakefield.

Wakefield, you may recall, was the much maligned British gastroenterologist, whose research had first uncovered a possible link between the triple vaccine and the development of autism and gastrointestinal disorders.

Wakefield sacrificed his career to publicize the MMR–autism connection; after a complete vilification by the press, the British General Medical Council removed his license to practice medicine and he moved to America, to carry on his research.

Kennedy, an environmental lawyer and activist, is also an outspoken critic of current vaccine policy.

Commission on vaccine safety?

After a meeting with Trump in early January Kennedy announced that Trump asked him to chair a commission on vaccine safety and scientific integrity.

Hope Hicks, a spokeswoman for Trump, backed off on that position, saying ‘The President-elect is exploring the possibility of forming a commission on autism, which affects so many families; however, no decisions have been made at this time,’ said the statement.

The interesting aspect to the two versions of that meeting is that President Trump is making a connection that no one in officialdom has had the nerve to

make: vaccines may have something to do with the explosion in autism in the West.

In questioning vaccines, Trump is not only taking on the pharmaceutical industry, the most profitable industry in the world. He is also taking on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the major government body invested with protecting the nation against infectious diseases.

The CDC’s data-tampering

In 2004, scientists at the CDC’s then National Immunization Program carried out a study intended to settle all the questions surrounding the measles–mumps–rubella (MMR) vaccine (produced by drug company Merck) and a possible link to autism. They’d compared the ages of 624 autistic children at the time of their first MMR vaccination with some 1,800 children who’d developed normally.

When the study was published in 2004, it was considered a definitive refutation of the work of Dr Wakefield.

The CDC researchers had found no significant link between the vaccine and the development of autism, nor any statistically significant increased risk for any racial or ethnic group.

There the story stood for nearly nine years until biochemical engineer Brian Hooker, associate professor of biology at Simpson University in California, decided to take a fresh look at the data.

He filed a Freedom of Information Act request for the original data and, while reanalyzing it, he got a call from CDC epidemiologist Dr William Thompson, who’d been a co-author of the 2004 paper and who now felt compelled to set the story straight by offering to collaborate on the new paper.

During multiple phone calls, Thompson revealed some of the statistical jiggery-pokery that had been used to hone the sample size of the children to allow manipulation of the data.

The CDC investigators had in fact discovered a 3.4-fold (or 340 per cent) increase in autism for African American boys in the study. However, this risk was never published because, according to Thompson, he and his fellow researchers cherry-picked which participants they wanted to include in their analyses.

As the new study says, the original study by DeStefano et al. limited the total African American cohort to include only those individuals who possessed a

valid State of Georgia birth certificate, which decreased the statistical power of their analysis.

This reduced the study sample by a whopping 41 per cent, virtually disqualifying most of the African Americans originally included and ultimately skewing the final results to make it appear that the vaccine carried minimal risk.

New autism link emerges

After numerous discussions with Thompson, Hooker published his re-analysis in early August. This time, it clearly shows that the African American boys in the study given the MMR vaccine before 24 months of age were more likely to develop autism.

In a stroke, this study has finally vindicated the work of Wakefield.

Thompson’s whistleblowing offers shocking evidence of deception and fraud at the heart of the US government agency charged with vaccine safety.

This is not the first time the CDC has been caught in the act of questionable activities. For six years, Hooker—himself the father of a 16-year-old with autism who he claims is ‘vaccine-damaged’—doggedly filed requests through the Freedom of Information Act for the original data on studies supposedly demonstrating that the preservative thimerosal, the mercury-based preservative used in numerous vaccines, was not implicated in autism.

After the CDC repeatedly stalled in handing over these supposedly public documents, he was forced to file a lawsuit against them. Ultimately, he discovered that numerous studies supposedly proving the safety of thimerosal were seriously flawed.

Media collusion

But that’s only the beginning of the cover-up. Today, in the age of corporate-run media, there has been a virtual press blackout of a major act of conspiracy by a government agency—a scam potentially as big as Watergate—and it’s been left to the alternative press, including parent-led autism and vaccination sites, to run with the story.

When news about Hooker’s findings and Thompson’s whistleblowing were posted on the CNN website as an iReport (news posted by viewers), it got more than 45,000 views and 178 comments, largely from people requesting that the channel formally cover the story. Not only did CNN not cover the story, but it also deleted the iReport.

In 2007, Trump said during a press interview, “When I was growing up, autism wasn’t really a factor. And now all of a sudden, it’s an epidemic. Everybody has their theory. My theory, and I study it because I have young children, my theory is the shots. We’re giving these massive injections at one time, and I really think it does something to the children.”

Repeatedly he’s questioned the wisdom of giving a giant cocktail of vaccines to a baby or young child.

If Trump is serious about exploring the effect of multiple vaccines and taking on these corrupt government bodies, I just could warm to him, just a little bit.

    I still don't trust Trump or his people. Big Pharma already has its imprint on the situation with a changing focus now being presented. I also hear Trump and Kennedy assuring they are not anti-vaccine where Kennedy originally clearly was. And Wakefield? He too was invited by Trump and Wakefield is clearly anti-vaccine. Will he now be forced to temper his views in order to 'play ball' with the establishment and therefore sell out the public?

  2. Terry says:

    I so hope he and Robert are able to turn the tide on the need for vaccination, especially execessive vaccination. At the very least put a stop to mandatory vaccination, and allow for choice without being bullied and ostracized. Hoping for much success here.

  3. Marcella Lowell says:

    The vaccine issue is one of the main reasons I did not vote for Hillary Clinton. Among other things I consider her to be a wolf in sheep's clothing. She so belittled the families of these damaged children by blowing off the issue and falling back on the so-called "science." I did not vote for Donald Trump either, however. I voted for another party candidate. I am surprised that I feel somewhat hopeful in his Presidency in that maybe people will be able to speak more freely about vaccine dangers since there is actually way more than enough evidence, just based on ingredients alone not to mention studies revealed by Robert Kennedy, Jr. and others, to encourage free speech on this topic.

  4. James Harvey says:

    If President Trump does allow the truth about vaccines to be widely published it will be the beginning of the end for Big Pharma.Will he allow this ? If he does he will earn a celebrated place in World History.
    Many of us have a poor opinion of President Trump but never has the comment "My Enemy,s Enemy is my Friend" been more appropriate.

  5. This issue of the MMR needs someone with welly to back the cause ....maybe Trump has it ??? AND who is looking into EMsmog and autism ?? check Dr Klinghardt.

  6. It is so interesting to read this from you, I just finished watching the docu expo about vaccines , VACCINES REVEALED, and was talking to a client of my about the information. i also told her that maybe the Universe helped get Trump in office so he will expose all of the lies, fraud, etc. on the vaccine issue.
    If he does nothing else but expose these criminals and helps to educate the public on the issue, it would be a God send.
    Go Trump and especially go Bobby Kennedy Jr.
    Oh, by the way I did not vote for him, but, I do believe he will have some purpose while he is office, maybe this is it.

  7. Janet E Spence ND says:

    well done Donald...it's about time some one had the balls to stand up against big pharma...the rest of the politicians are bought and paid for. I was at Andrew Wakefields early lecture when he told how he first made the connection regarding the vaccine and how funds to continue the research were immediately withdrawn. He was treated dreadfully. I am so glad that he now has the international recognition he so deserves. Pharma should be forced to pay for the destruction of so many lives...it's akin to chemical warfare. STOP demonising Trump...he's starting off by doing more for global humanity than any one else in ions.....

  8. Please do warm up to him. As a special education teacher, mother and business owner I support anyone who is interested in opening up the vaccine safety issue. I have taught for years and the rise in autism is great. Our bodies are not made to handle so much toxins at the same time.

  9. Wendy Olson says:

    That does sound hopeful! After all these years.

  10. Carol Taylor says:

    Oh Lynn
    I'm down here in Florida and the People are so Hopeful with President Trump....The Country had gone so far Left with Obama That Our friends Here , Who are Democrats , who voted for Trump are so full of Hope instead of the Hopeless and Change that were offered by the last 8 years.....!!!!!!
    Make American Great is what I'm hearing.....He will be Good for all the People who are willing to work for the good of USA...........Leftist Media Drank the KoolAde

  11. Helen Holdsworth says:

    I am 100% PRO vaccination, especially MMR. You and your brain washed followers, are the reason infectious diseases like Measles, has made a reappearance in Wales, resulting in many unfortunate and unnecessary deaths!! Please flush your ideas down the toilet where they belong.
    Best wishes
    Helen.

    • Jan Lilley says:

      Get an education. You would not be so vociferous if you had suffered the heartbreak of having a vaccine damaged child.

    • Jan Lilley says:

      And, by the way, I live in Wales and there have not been 'an unfortunate amount of deaths from measles'. I would like to know where you are getting your stats from?

  12. Alfonso says:

    They say his son baron is autistic..hope this fuels him to fight poisonus big pharmaceutical companies. ..Mike Adams , the health ranger from natural news has published similar stuff.. (he supports trump..I don't agree with a lot of that )

    • Alfonso says:

      I agree with fighting pharmacy poisons..but don't support a lot of trump's views...on other subjects...is what I mean

  13. Jannah Leon-Maurice says:

    ABSOLUTELY! Right on President Trump!

  14. Frances Welford says:

    Thank goodness the truth is out at last. Re. your last paragraph, my sentiments exactly !

  15. claire says:

    This is EXTREMELY interesting. I hope you will tell us how the story proceeds.....

  16. Lin Savory says:

    Thanks Lynne, for your research, your magazine, and for basing yourself in the US as well as the UK, we are really like one country even most of the citizens do not know it. Our country is very backward after all of these years of education. But as an educator I have hope for us with our youth who seem to be saving the world these days.

  17. Dilys says:

    Yes, yes, please God he will clear Andrew and perhaps others we have shunned for years. The public, especially young mothers and the grandparents too need to know the risk.

  18. Alex Andriena Humphreys says:

    Let's hope trump is serious.i read Andrew Wakefield report when my son was a baby years ago and had health issues and decided not to proceed with the 3 in 1 jab.more research is needed into these cocktail of vaccines and gut connection let's hope trump will take this on.good on him if he does

  19. Bill Riley says:

    I want evidence-based medicine for me and my family but I want the evidence to be the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

  20. Debbie says:

    Thank you for sharing your view on President Trump! I did not vote for him and am a Bernie supporter, but was interested on his view in regards to vaccines; or, not even his view, just that he was and is willing to discuss it and take a serious look (we hope) at the injuries, the epidemic of autism and auto-immune disorders as a whole and the cocktail of so many vaccinations being given to our children. I have been so torn with him becoming President as I am opposed to much of what he stands for, yet this piece of which I feel so strongly about, and therefore I have hope that "maybe" it can be brought to the table and honestly looked at. We shall see!

  21. T Donaldson says:

    i hope you are right Lynn though from.previous things this contradictory and off the wall zexist racist and seeking to.ensure all USA citizens become patriotic -i hope he os not seeking a jab to ensure the protesters and his objectors bevome zombofied. But seriously iv always been an admirer of Wakefield nd if Kennedy junior who seems a decent liberal lawyer well.maybe there is hope.

  22. This is good news! I have nothing against Trump but I have a lot against 'The Establishment' because we know it's self serving and corrupt. Let's see what Trump does. This initiative is really good, he is beginning well. And I hope it won't be the only good iniciative... All I can do is hope, of course.

  23. Brian says:

    How do we lobby him to pursue this?

  24. My severely autistic and non-verbal 35 year old son was right-handed until he got to the end of his vaccines, since when he has been left-handed. He is now subject to repeated infections which have been recurring for the past 15 years and I blame his vaccinations for this damage to his immune system. He was given 3 vaccines on one day at the age of 4 months. In Japan, they don't vaccinate under the age of 2 because they regard it as too dangerous. How corrupt our medical authorities must be. Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride writes that it is possible to test for any genetic susceptibility to such damage (her son was diagnosed with autism) but nobody bothers to carry out this test.

  25. Paul Swartz says:

    Before you attack these vaccines, you should look at
    the millions of lives that have been saved by the polio, measles
    and small pox vaccines. This is not to mention the whooping cough
    and diphtheria vaccines along with chicken pox. Right now there is
    whooping cough epidemic in a town in Texas. What they found out was
    that most of children hadn't been vaccinated.

  26. Linda Strickler says:

    Thanks Lynne for continuing to search and find information that is helpful for support around the problems raised by vaccinations. I, for one, feel I might warm to him too, just a little! I grew up in the USA, born 1944. The number of vaccinations we got were minimal. I actually had measles, mumps and chickenpox as a child. I think there is still a lot that needs to be examined carefully, scientifically and honestly in this arena.

  27. Me too . With seven grandchildren and one great grandchild .. I could definitely warm to him 🙂 Thank you for your information 🙂

    The witch hunt against Andrew Wakefield was instigated and persued with a fanatical religious zeal by the self appointed high priests of the medical and journalistic professions directly reminiscent of the Holy Inquisition's persecution of heretics in the darkest days of the Middle Ages. It is remarkable that he has maintained both his belief and composure during such unremitting pressure. My hope is that finally someone will seek to not only exonerate him but to finally acknowledge the validity of his work and if that person is President Trump, then he has my vote.

  29. Michèle says:

    Thank you so very much for the work of thorough information you do, so needed. I have been following your work since the beginning of your Intention Experiments with great interest and excitement. Thank you for that too.

  30. There have been thousands of cover up regarding drugs safety. How about Myodil (not used anymore) a dye which was injected into the spine to take X-rays regarding disk troubles. This dye damaged millions of people through out the world, people now suffering from adhesive Arachnoiditis. There is no cure for this very painful condition. Glaxo sold this product and was involved in several lawsuits but never admitted liability. We are still trying to get justice. Please read my website myodilaction.info, all my research is published on this website.

  31. Marjorie Footitt says:

    I remember Andrew Wakefield's report coming out here in U.K. and the vilification by 'people who knew better' to discredit him. ? Yet another case of "who guards the guards"? I would like to send a personal 'thank you' to Mr Wakefield and congratulations as he joins a long list of other vindicated scientists throughout history

  32. Mark Bones says:

    One day the pharmaceutical industry will kill its own golden goose, and the good work that they do will be lost with the bad. Human nature...

  33. Jennifer says:

    This would have been my reason to vote for him. Luckily, in the UK vaccine is not mandatory. If I lives in the US and was having children, I would have to leave, I couldn't have poison stuck into them.

  34. Derek B says:

    I believe this scandal is part of the 'swamp' that Donald Trump intends to clear, and not before time! Let us hope the UK government take note and follow on. I'm not holding my breath though. Every person on the planet should make up their own mind by watching Dr Andrew Wakefield's film 'Vaxxed', its all there.

  35. howard lubow,rn says:

    2 other prominent MDs should be noted who have been true pioneers in autism research :Dr. Mary Megson; both her website and her Congressional testimony, dating to 1999 are revelatory.Also, the doctor who treated her own son and wrote the book and coined the acronym GAPS (gut and psychology syndrome).Thank the founding fathers for Freedom of the Press. You may also be interested in the historical controversy surrounding the polio vaccine programs.The historical record shows doctors in France were curing patients of polio in the late 1940s and early 1950s with magnesium chloride in water,taken orally.At that time, a Dr. Ralph Scobey, from Syracuse, questioned the science behind vaccination.Google PolioPesticides for the historical context.

  36. Terri Perry says:

    Lets hope Donald Trump can overturn the policy of Mandatory Vaccination in California before other States initiate it too! Trump was elected by the people for the people - lets hope he lives up to his word.

  37. Isolation and not Vaccination was fashionable many years ago in England we Are told!
    Even the Small pox had disappeared not by vaccination but through isolation!!!
    Miss USA 1996 could not hear the ovations when she was crowned because her hearing was damaged by vaccination!According to a
    TV program I remember .
    And I am more than sure that my daughter,s hearing is damaged by s vaccination before she was 2 year old because she had many mornings scriming and crying , that means an inflammation of the brain.That happened in 1973 when there was not triple vaccination . So I think the preservative in the vaccine did the damage.
    In 1970 , in Nicosia General Hodpital we did thousands of vaccinations against holera!
    Now The holera vaccination does not exist!!!
    It is so simple! If there is an autoimmune disease in the family we have to keep away
    From vaccinations.
    Unfortunately autoimmune illnesses are so common!

  38. Rosine says:

    I heard Robert Kennedy's speech to a committee on vaccines and autism. He indicated timersol is a mercury type chemical used in vaccines as being responsible for autism.. I looked up when timersol was first used in vaccines...it was in the 1920s and 30s. My 39 year old son was diagnosed with psychoaffective disorder when he was 17. But when he was a young child of 3 years old he had symptoms of autism. Several years ago a psychiatrist indicated that he was probably autistic at that time. He was also tested when he was a teenager and shown to have learning disabilities. He had been in and out of therapy all his life. One night a year or so ago, as I was watching a late night interview with a group of psychiatrists on autism, they all agreed that autism morphs into other psychiatric disorders when that child becomes an adult...such as bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, etc. So autism has been around a long time, but just wasn't diagnosed until the last 10 to 15 years or so...

  39. I like it whenever people get together and share ideas.
    Great website, continue the good work!
