This article is a direct follow-up to an article I wrote October 4th, 2011 titled “The CDC Has Known All Along How Dangerous Vaccines Are – And Has Covered It Up… (Part One)where I explained about Brian Hooker PhD’s lawsuit against the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for withholding public information he, and every American citizen, is entitled to under the US Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA).  Brian Hooker has been investigating the five so-called “studies” the CDC claims prove that Thimerosal in vaccines does not cause Autism nor neurological disorders.

Today I will tell you the CDC’s formal response.  The title of this article pretty well sums up the CDC position.  Will they get away with this?  Nope.  Keep reading.

Laying the groundwork…

First, let me tell you about Julie Gerberding, the head of the CDC from 2002 through 2009.  She was running things at CDC when Brian Hooker PhD began making his FOIA requests – and was being stonewalled.  She was there for seven years.

President Obama fired her as head of CDC in early 2009.  Within just a few weeks Gerberding went from that $250,000 per year CDC salary to become the president of Merck’s Vaccine Division at an estimated salary of $2,500,000 per year.

Nice, huh?   Gets fired – three weeks later gets a job that pays ten (10) times what she made in the government. (squint your eyes, and wrinkle your nose here – as though there was a bad smell suddenly in the room.).

Gerberding came to CDC in 2002, and as stated in the Wikipedia article I already mentioned:

“Soon after her arrival at the CDC, Gerberding began an overhaul of the agency’s organizational structure. On April 21, 2005 Gerberding formally announced the reorganization of CDC to “confront the challenges of 21st-century health threats”.[1] This reorganization resulted in the following structure:[2]

After the restructuring began, many of the CDC’s senior scientists and leaders either left or announced plans to leave.[3]

Let me state that last phrase in the quote once again – for emphasis:

After the restructuring began, many of the CDC’s senior scientists and leaders either left or announced plans to leave.[3]

When you look carefully at Gerberding’s restructuring, it looks to me, like virtually every restructured sub agency had everything to do with PROMOTING VACCINES; selling the idea of vaccines, coordinating vaccines, keeping public records of vaccines, getting money from other agencies to buy vaccines and distribute them, etc.

It doesn’t surprise me a bit that Merck found her services valuable, and was willing to pay her for those services – after the fact.  Merck, according to an article in Xconomy.com:

Julie Gerberding, the former director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, has been in one of those rare positions for about the past 18 months as president of Merck’s vaccine unit. At Merck (NYSE: MRK), she has been learning the ins and outs of a $5-billion-a-year operation that makes 14 of the 17 vaccines the CDC recommends for children, and nine of the 10 recommended for adults.”

Get the picture?

So, Why Is This Important?

Brian Hooker PhD began making his FOIA request of Gerberding’s agency in 2004, right when Gerberding was to establish her big vaccine over-push, called a re-structuring, mentioned above.  Revealing embarrassing information, like the fact that VACCINES WERE EXTREMELY DANGEROUS, the fact that the CDC knew that, and covered those facts up right about then, would not have played well with the so-called restructuring.

So, no one would be surprised, if that info was illegally withheld, now would they?

Which brings us to today…

The CDC finally filed their paperwork in the Hooker v CDC case.  In short, they simply reiterate their claim that they do not have to give anybody, FOIA request or not, any information they don’t want  seen, and they claim several different reasons why that is so - none of which will stand up under judicial examination.  It is just another stall.  I will show you some excerpts below, and link you to their filing.

The information Hooker seeks is in regard to the email discussions about those so-called “Studies” that claim to prove no relationship between Thimerosal in vaccines and Autism.  What Hooker already has is damning, and the rest, it is easy to assume, is even more so.

It is obvious to me, with even a cursory glance at the documents already available, that certain employees at the CDC were soliciting a fake outcome, and there were consultants out in the world (outside the US) who were telling them how they could, for a significant fee, deliver that outcome.

The trouble with all that is if what we think happened, actually happened, then what they did was CRIMINAL ACTIVITY, involving the death and suffering of millions of children and their families.

So, it is no surprise to me, that the current CDC would continue to attempt to hide the information they have.  I don’t happen to think the court system will let them get away with it though.  Criminal indictments of CDC employees involved in Hooker’s search, past or present, would effectively end the CDC.

The first group of excerpts I am going to show you involve the authors of the first study (Danish Study) manuscripts themselves.  The one of interest to us, primarily, is Poul Thorsen, who as you may remember, had been indicted in the US for fraud and money laundering.  In essence, the CDC is claiming that no American citizen has any right to ask any questions about Poul Thorsen’s activities at and with the CDC.  Of real interest is the third paragraph down, where the CDC claims that “There is no public interest in … Poul Thorsen’s personal life.” (laugh here). See below:

15. The correspondence withheld or redacted under Exemption 5 were among CDC employees and Poul Thorsen, Kreesten Madsen, Marlene Lauritsen, and Preben Mortensen. These four individuals were authors of a manuscript entitled “Thimerosal and the Occurrence of Autism: Negative Ecological Evidence From Danish Population-Based Data.” Id. ¶ 23. CDC collaborated with the authors of this manuscript and, therefore, the authors were considered
temporary consultants to the CDC. Id.

17. The CDC redacted the mobile phone number of Kreesten Madsen and comments regarding Poul Thorsen’s personal life pursuant to Exemption 6. Id. ¶ 25.

20. There is no public interest in Kreesten Madsen’s mobile phone number or Poul Thorsen’s personal life. Id. As the privacy interests outweigh any public interest in disclosure, release of this information would constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy. Id.

Then there is this below, where the CDC makes up some new rule  applications for their own benefit:

Comments submitted by outside reviewers are also pre-decisional and deliberative. Comments submitted by reviewers “are used by the CDC to determine whether to seek publication of a manuscript and provide guidance with respect to revision of the manuscript.” Maloney Decl. ¶42. These comments do not reflect the settled decisions of the Agency as to what information should be included in the final documents and are thus predecisional and deliberative.

Because the copyrighted materials that were voluntarily submitted are confidential and would cause harm if released, CDC properly withheld the copyrighted materials.

18. In asserting Exemption 6, each piece of information was scrutinized to determine the nature and strength of the privacy interest of any individual whose name or identifying information appeared in the documents at issue. In each instance where information was withheld, the individual had a privacy interest in the information being withheld pursuant to Exemption 6.

Will any of this work?  No.

Why not?  Because this sort of tactic is common in court cases, and there are simple remedies the Plaintiff can activate.  The simplest of these is a legal device that in essence, says:  “show us the documents and we will review them ourselves to see if you are correct.  We will agree to hold them confidential while we are looking at them.  However, if we find you are wrong…”

Judges, too, can demand the documents and look at them themselves, or with their assistants.

It’s just a matter of time.

 

Stay tuned…

Former Staff Lead on Original Congressional Investigation Looking at Vaccine Injuries Speaks Out on CDC Fraud

Former Staff Lead on Original Congressional Investigation Looking at Vaccine Injuries Speaks Out on CDC Fraud

Pin It

Beth Clay is a unique contributor to the CDC whistleblower story. Clay was the staff lead on the original House Oversight Committee’s investigation looking into concerns about vaccine injuries in 1999. Working in Congress, she had a genuine desire to find the truth and find solutions regarding the rapidly increasing autism rates. What she found during her time in Congress, however, shocked her. So the recent revelations of Dr. Thompson, the CDC whistleblower, are not really “news” to her. Sadly, a government agency withholding information about a link between vaccines and autism is representative of the kind of fraud she too observed during her years in Congress.

CDC Director of Immunization Safety Admits Bias and Withholding Data Linking Vaccines to Autism

CDC Director of Immunization Safety Admits Bias and Withholding Data Linking Vaccines to Autism

In what is quickly becoming one of the largest news stories in our lifetime, things are just getting worse for the CDC and their cover-up of data linking vaccines to autism.

Investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson has posted a recorded phone call she just had with Dr. Frank DeStefano, the CDC Director of Immunization Safety. Dr. DeStefano was a co-author with CDC whistleblower Dr. William Thompson on a 2004 study that originally was put forward as research showing there was no link between vaccines and autism. Dr. Thompson has come forward and revealed that data was withheld from the public that showed an increased risk of autism in certain populations, specifically African American boys. The CDC has already made a public announcement admitting that they did withhold some data.

Dr. DeStefano has publicly stated that while he will reveal the data again, but that he is standing by the original study. A new audio recording of a conversation he just had with independent investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson has just been posted on the Internet.

In this interview, Dr. DeStefano, who is not a whistle-blower, has come out with his own confession of bias and way of interpreting data so that it does not have to be shared with the public if it is not favorable with what they want to communicate regarding vaccines.

Dr. DeSefano and the CDC is being forced to answer questions like this (which unfortunately the mainstream media as of yet are NOT asking) because his co-author on the study, Dr. William Thompson, has hired one of the top whistleblower attorney’s in the nation so that he can come forward and reveal all the data the CDC has been hiding in regards to vaccines and autism.

In a previous article we published on where funds donated to the ALS Association are being spent, we showed that a small percentage was actually spent on research, and even then only on pharmaceutical products. This has been our most popular story of the year so far.

Sayer Ji brings us a great review of over 60 natural cures that have published research on helping ALS. He also shows how some of the corporate sponsors of the ALS Association are pharmaceutical companies producing drugs that are linked to the cause of ALS!

MSM Marginalizes CDC Whistleblower Story on Vaccine-Autism Coverup

MSM Marginalizes CDC Whistleblower Story on Vaccine-Autism Coverup

Pin It

CNN was the first mainstream media (MSM) outlet to publish a story on the CDC whistleblower story linking vaccines to autism. Predictably, CNN marginalized this story on their website, and then posted a video from their TV network which said nothing about the CDC whistleblower Dr. William Thompson, but simply reiterated the MSM’s belief that all vaccines are safe and do not cause autism. They have posted a video that incorrectly represents facts regarding infant mortality and current whooping cough outbreaks that are occurring among fully vaccinated populations.

How can we trust anything CNN says on the vaccine issue if they misrepresent such basic facts regarding vaccines that are easily verified by 3rd party sources?

This story regarding the CDC cover-up has become too big for the MSM to ignore. They have to address it, but predictably they will continue to cover the story from their own belief system that the vaccine-autism debate is over, and that only one side of the debate should be heard. For those reporters that would dare to cover both sides of the debate, they will soon be without a career in MSM. So perhaps the American public needs to wake up and acknowledge this fact, and research the issue for themselves. A current senior scientist working for the CDC who has regrets over his participation in covering up data linking vaccines to autism is something worth taking some time to research.

CDC Whistleblower: Mercury in Vaccines Given to Pregnant Women Linked to Autism

CDC Whistleblower: Mercury in Vaccines Given to Pregnant Women Linked to Autism

Pin It

Today, the Autism Media Channel released a short video where CDC whistle-blower Dr. William Thompson states, in a phone call to Dr. Brian Hooker, that injecting mercury into pregnant women creates a “clear and present danger” to the unborn child. Thimerosal, a form of mercury used as a preservative in vaccines, was removed from most childhood vaccines a few years ago, but is still in the annual flu shot, which is recommended for pregnant women.

Dr. Thompson, in the video below, insists that this mercury in vaccines causes “tics” in children, and these tics are 4 times more prevalent in kids with autism. “Tics” are defined on the CDC website as: “Tics are sudden twitches, movements, or sounds that people do repeatedly. People who have tics cannot stop their body from doing these things. For example, a person with a motor tic might keep blinking over and over again. Or, a person with a vocal tic might make a grunting sound unwillingly.”
