Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Calls For Extradition of CDC Vaccine Criminal Mastermind Poul Thorsen To Face Charges of Criminal Scientific Misconduct

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. (RFK Jr.) and his team at World Mercury Project have drafted up a new report that reveals the criminal conduct of CDC consultant and vaccine cultist Poul Thorsen. With an overwhelming body of evidence, RFK Jr is calling for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to take action and extradite Poul Thorsen so he can face up to his numerous crimes. In a statement, RFK Jr declared, “World Mercury Project calls upon Attorney General Jeff Sessions to extradite Thorsen back to the U.S. to face prosecution. We also call upon Secretary of Health and Human Services Dr. Tom Price to retract the Thorsen-affiliated autism research papers that are the fruit of illegally conducted research.”

What has World Mercury Project (WMP) uncovered? In addition to evidence of criminal activity, new findings by WMP show that Thorsen and his team never obtained permission from the Institutional Review Board (IRB) to do their studies, published in 2002 by the New England Journal of Medicine and in 2003 by the journal Pediatrics. As WMP explains, this alone detracts from the validity of their research, but to make matters worse, records indicate that the CDC was complicit in covering up this little “mistake.” According to the WMP report, CDC staff realized that no IRB approval had ever been granted for Thorsen’s research, but the error was simply ignored and the studies were never retracted. Freedom of Information Act documents show that supervisors at the CDC looked the other way and actively tried to conceal what transpired.

As if all that wasn’t bad enough, the story of Poul Thorsen only continues to get even darker. Back in 2011, the U.S. Department of Justice indicted Thorsen on 22 counts of wire fraud and money laundering after he stole over a million dollars in CDC grant money that was supposed to be designated for autism research. WMP explains, “The product of Thorsen’s work for CDC was a series of fraud-tainted articles on Danish autism rates that, today, form the backbone of the popular orthodoxy that vaccines don’t cause autism.”

Natural News founder and leader of CWC Labs Mike Adams has been on Poul Thorsen’s case since 2011; at that time, Adams reported that the DOJ indictment showed Thorsen had submitted over a dozen fraudulent invoices to request “reimbursement” for expenses that didn’t exist. These invoices were given to Aarhus University, where Thorsen was a faculty member. According to Adams, DOJ documents show that hundreds of thousands of dollars from the university were supposed to be transferred to CDC bank accounts. But they weren’t; instead the funds were transferred to a personal bank account belonging to…Poul Thorsen. The documents reportedly show that Thorsen then used the money to “live it up,” if you will; he bought a house, cars, a motorcycle and got multiple cashier’s checks with the wrongfully obtained money. Thorsen should be in prison for the rest of his life; even though the DOJ said in 2011 they had begun extradition proceedings, for some reason he is still a free man. How deep does government corruption actually run?

And as WMP notes, Thorsen’s faulty studies continue to be used to deny any sort of correlation between autism and vaccination to this day.  His research was also used in the NVICP’s “Omnibus Proceeding,” which saw 5000 petitions by families who claimed that their children had developed autism from vaccines end up getting dismissed. WMP estimates that if these cases had been settled in the families’ favor, all the payouts would have amounted to approximately $10 billion — certainly, nothing to sneeze at.

The Health Ranger reported on this six years ago — and things haven’t changed much since that time. Will RFK Jr’s call to action help get the ball rolling, or will the DOJ continue to sit on their hands while this criminal roams free?

Kid Rock for Senate in 2018? Robert Ritchie gave his first speech and it was good






GRAND RAPIDS (INTELLIHUB) — Robert James Ritchie, a.k.a. Kid Rock, recently gave a speech before one of his concerts where he had thousands of fans cheering at the top of their lungs.

The famed American rocker took the stage like a boss with a flag waving girl to either side as a banner hung in the background which read: “Kid Rock 18′ for U.S. Senate.”

“What’s going on in the world today? Rock asked the crowd. “It seems the government wants to give us all health insurance but wants us to pay.” [Many cheers could be heard in the crowd.]

During his speech, Rock also mentioned the elite’s plan for the “redistribution of wealth” and said that women need to quit popping out kids.

“Read my lips,” Rock said. “We should not reward these women who can’t even take care of themselves but keep having kid after fu*king kid.”

Rock continued, “Of course we want to help them out. I don’t want to sit here and sound like a jerk but let’s help them out with childcare, job training to put their god damn asses to work.”

Deep state operative Robert Mueller now using “elite” IRS unit in scheme to take out Trump

(INTELLIHUB) — Another day, another series of revelations relating to deep state operative Robert Mueller’s sham investigation into supposed Russian hacking of the 2016 election, this time with news that he is teaming up with the conservative targeting IRS to further dig for something he can then use to turn a member of Trump’s inner circle.

According to the Daily Beast, the special counsel’s office has “teamed up” with the IRS’s elite Criminal Investigation Unit which will help to ensure that investigators (see deep state operatives specifically looking to take out the elected president) apply the “maximum possible scrutiny” to the finances of Trump associates, despite the fact that Mueller’s entire investigation is supposed to be about Russian election hacking.

As Zerohedge noted, “Of course, the public has long been aware, thanks to Mueller’s collaborators in the media, that his team has no solid evidence to support a charge of election fraud against Trump or members of his circle.”

“And while this latest “partnership” just confirms widely held suspicions that Mueller & Co. are grasping at straws, it could provide Mueller an opening to strike directly at the president, his family and closest advisers – or at least embarass Trump with a fresh batch of leaks.”

The Daily Beast report, which was of course given to the news outlet by people close to Mueller himself, points out that in partnering with the IRS, Mueller’s team will then be able to access Trump’s tax returns.

“This unit—known as CI—is one of the federal government’s most tight-knit, specialized, and secretive investigative entities. Its 2,500 agents focus exclusively on financial crime, including tax evasion and money laundering. A former colleague of Mueller’s said he always liked working with IRS’ special agents, especially when he was a U.S. Attorney.

And it goes without saying that the IRS has access to Trump’s tax returns—documents that the president has long resisted releasing to the public

Potential financial crimes are a central part of Mueller’s probe. One of his top deputies, Andy Weissmann, formerly helmed the Justice Department’s Enron probe and has extensive experience working with investigative agents from the IRS.”

Considering the long history of anti-Trump leaks to establishment media outlets, one can safety assume that the tax returns would then be leaked and plastered across the pages of The New York Times or Washington Post.

“In its report, the Daily Beast shares some fresh insight into the prosecution’s case against Manafort. Naturally, we have a few questions: Can somebody explain what role Paul Manafort’s forgetting to check a box on his tax returned played in the grand conspiracy to rig the 2016 election,” Zerohedge continued.

“It’s been widely reported that the special counsel’s team is trying to “flip” Paul Manafort, the president’s former campaign CEO, in hopes he will provide evidence against his former colleagues. Former federal prosecutors tell The Daily Beast one of Manafort’s biggest legal liabilities could be to what’s called a “check the box” prosecution.

Federal law requires that people who have money in foreign bank accounts check a box on their tax returns disclosing that. And there’s speculation that Manafort may have neglected to check that box, which would be a felony. This is exactly the kind of allegation the IRS would look into.”

As Intellihub News has reported for weeks, Mueller is specifically targeting Manafort for crimes he may or may not have committed literally years before he ever worked with Trump.

In early August I reported that, “FBI agents working for deep state operative Robert Mueller raided the home of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort late last month, seizing materials they claim are related to the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.”

“Despite claims throughout the mainstream media that the raid is connected to the Russian-“Trump investigation, their own reports conclusively show that the targeting of Manafort has absolutely nothing to do with anything Trump may or may not have done wrong but is in reality about fishing through Manafort’s past until they find wrongdoing which would then allow Mueller and his team to flip him and eventually force him to lie about Trump and or his associates.”

All in all this is just more proof that the entire Mueller investigation is a full on sham designed to take out Donald Trump by any means necessary. The idea that this has anything to do with Russia was long ago thrown out the window.

Now, the deep state assets on Mueller’s team (as well as Mueller himself) are teaming up with the IRS, despite their long history of directly targeting conservatives, to magically find a financial crime that a Trump associate committed years ago.

This will then be used to “turn” (see apply pressure until someone lies) someone like Manafort.

One has to wonder how long the American people are going to allow deep state operatives, with the help of the mainstream media, to openly target a president not because of wrongdoing but because they disagree with him politically?

Robert Mueller now openly working with anti-Trump attorney general in transparent deep state hit against elected president

(INTELLIHUB) — While most of the country focused on the devastation in Texas inflicted by Hurricane Harvey, deep state operative Robert Mueller was busy pushing forward with his sham “investigation” into Donald Trump.

Not content with his already transparently corrupt attempt at taking out the elected president of the United States, Mueller recently teamed up with New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, a man with an openly anti-Trump history that in no way, shape, or form could actually conduct a fair investigation.

According to Politico, “The cooperation is the latest indication that the federal probe into President Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman is intensifying. It also could potentially provide Mueller with additional leverage to get Manafort to cooperate in the larger investigation into Trump’s campaign, as Trump does not have pardon power over state crimes.”

“The two teams have shared evidence and talked frequently in recent weeks about a potential case, these people said. One of the people familiar with progress on the case said both Mueller’s and Schneiderman’s teams have collected evidence on financial crimes, including potential money laundering.”

Unbelievable.

Keep in mind that Schneiderman and Trump are open enemies and the New York Attorney General has targeted Trump repeatedly. Trump even attacked him on social media after the liberal attorney general won a $25 million settlement against Trump University.

It’s safe to say that Schneiderman is no fan of the president and couldn’t possibly be expected to remain unbiased.

Manafort fishing expedition

We already know that Mueller is attempting to catch Paul Manafort in some sort of crime he committed literally years before he even worked with Donald Trump and now he is getting help from a man who publicly despises the president.

As Intellihub News reported in early August, agents with the FBI, working under Mueller, raided a home owned by Manafort in connection with the Trump investigation and the mainstream medias own reports showed that Mueller was targeting the short-lived Trump campaign manager in a fishing expedition aimed at turning him against the president.

“Despite claims throughout the mainstream media that the raid is connected to the Russian-Trump investigation, their own reports conclusively show that the targeting of Manafort has absolutely nothing to do with anything Trump may or may not have done wrong but is in reality about fishing through Manafort’s past until they find wrongdoing which would then allow Mueller and his team to flip him and eventually force him to lie about Trump and or his associates,” I reported.

“Think about this for a second. Mueller was hired to look into supposed Russian election interference (a narrative that was literally created by Muellers’ friends in the deep state and media) but is now focusing on an easy target that more than likely has broken some sort of law in his long years of dealing with foreign countries.” (and LONG BEFORE he worked for Trump)

Mueller’s friends call for Trump’s death

A few days after the above report was released new information came to light that detailed the fact that both Manafort and Michael Flynn were literally going bankrupt in attempting to defend themselves against Mueller’s deep state operation. This news came at the same time as Mueller’s own friend was publicly admitting on CNN that the government was “going to kill” Trump.

Amazingly, as Mueller looked to bankrupt Trump allies, his own friends in the intelligence community continued to openly attack the president, with one going as far as to call for Trump’s murder during an appearance on CNN.

Former CIA operative Philip Mudd, who also just so happens to have been deputy director of the FBI under Robert Mueller, not only openly admitted the deep state war against Trump but actually stated that the government will kill him.

“In yet another stunning display of the very real deep state war being waged against Donald Trump, CNN talking head and former CIA agent Philip Mudd has openly threatened the president with murder,” Intellihub News reported.

Mueller himself was long ago exposed as a deep state operative, through his history of working for the establishment as well as his more recent shady conduct in openly hiring and working with people who have an anti-Trump agenda.

All in all there is a literal mountain of evidence that proves that the Mueller Russian investigation is nothing more than a political witch hunt aimed at canceling the 2016 elections in favor of deep state rule.

Robert E. Lee Descendant Calls Out Those with ‘Privilege and Power’ at MTV VMAs

Another awards show means another chance for MTV to pretend to be relevant. Kudos to trying to have one about music for a change, but that never seems to make the tone-deaf liberal argument disappear. Much like its earlier movie awards show, the VMAs proceeds to make room in its three-hour lineup for more parroting and edge-pushing.

The 2017 MTV Video Music Awards hosted by Katy Perry on August 27 was bound to feature some idiotic political statement on top of the usual sexualizing that passes for entertainment. Even before the show began, the awards show clearly prepped for a completely politically correct night with completely non-gendered categories down to the renaming of the Moonman award to a Moon-person award. To go one step further, the red carpet preview even featured six transgendered members of the U.S. Military to act against President Trump’s latest order to ban transgendered members from the military. With a warmup like that, we’re bound for a long, long night. 

For those of you lucky enough to miss the show, the night did not disappoint its bubble of an audience, which means it disappointed everyone else. Witness the dud of an opening right here complete with a reference to The Handmaid’s Tale.

Following directly afterwards, this year’s call for unity ironically coupled with a poor Donald Trump impersonation comes to us from the clear center of media discussion, Paris Jackson, right at the opportune moment of announcing the nominees for Best Pop Video. I suppose someone somewhere must have thought trashing Trump right away but waiting more than thirty-five minutes to mention the current plight of those affected by Hurricane Harvey was a good idea.

I’m seeing a lot of love and light here tonight. Already. A lot of diversity. And, a lot of potential power. You know, if we all put our voices together, do you realize the difference we would make? If we were to all stand up, united, as one, our impact, it would be, huge. Believe me. Huge. And that’s not fake news. So, let’s leave here tonight remembering that, we must show these Nazi white supremacist jerks in Charlottesville and all over the country that as a nation with liberty as our slogan, we have zero tolerance for their violence, their hatred, and their discrimination! We must resist. And now, the nominees for Best Pop Video! 

Now I understand why this award show also aired on Comedy Central because that moral posturing was funnier than anything on The Daily Show nowadays. Or at least it was funnier than anything Katy Perry tries to pass off as humor which includes popular vote jokes, Russian hacking cracks, and Twitter jabs. Can someone please tell her that these lines lost their originality (if they ever had it) nine months ago?

The night continued as expected from there. Singer Miley Cyrus performs, as promised, with an 85-year-old drag queen in front of millions of teenage viewers because that’s unfortunately a draw now. Hip-hop artist Cardi B (I had to look her up, too) gave a shout-out to standing up with part-time athlete, full-time victim Colin Kaepernick while her dress kept sliding down. Even Pink, who wore a “Stay Woke” sash, gave some praise to the past androgynous singers for being their “true” selves.

But the worst was sadly saved for last. After more than two and a half hours of mindless pop, MTV pulled its trump card by bringing out Reverend Robert Lee IV, a descendant of General Robert E. Lee, and Heather Heyer’s mother to honor the six videos for Best Fight Against The System (where, of course, everyone was a winner – seriously).

Announcer: Please welcome, the Reverend Robert Lee. 

Robert Lee: My name is Robert Lee, IV, I am a descendant of Robert E. Lee, the Civil War general whose statue was at the center of violence in Charlottesville. We have made my ancestor an idol for white supremacy, racism, and hate. As a pastor, it is my moral duty to speak out against racism, America’s original sin. Today, I call on all of us, with privilege and power to answer God’s call to confront racism and white supremacy head-on. We can find inspiration in the Black Lives Matter movement, the women who marched in the Women’s March in January, and, especially, Heather Heyer, who died fighting for her beliefs in Charlottesville. It is my distinct honor to introduce Susan Bro, Heather Heyer’s mother continuing to magnify Heather’s work. 

The VMAs are just the latest platform to assume that the best fighters against hatred include notorious cop-haters and a movement led by an anti-Semitic Islam apologist. My heart goes out to the poor woman who lost her daughter to a heartless racist in the chaos of Charlottesville, but this night will solve absolutely nothing, much like the numerous self-righteous award shows before it. And with the Game of Thrones finale airing at the same time, it’ll be lucky to be watched at all.

Bozell & Graham Column: ESPN’s Robert Lee Belly Flop

ESPN has been working hard for several years to establish itself as just another sermonizing member of the liberal media, most audaciously in hailing “Kaitlyn” Jenner with a “Courage” award in 2015 for facing down such tortures as the disrespectful use of “incorrect pronouns.” Soldiers who lost their lives in combat hadn’t a fraction of Jenner’s bravery, according to their judgment.

Now ESPN has shown its true colors, which is to say: They are idiots. In the wake of the media’s Charlottesville feeding frenzy, they reassigned a college football announcer named Robert Lee away from covering the University of Virginia football game against William & Mary on September 2. Even liberal sports junkies like NBC’s Chuck Todd tweeted “This is stupid. Sorry. Someone’s PR team is way too sensitive.” As everyone now knows, Robert Lee is Asian-American.

When the story broke, some suggested it was too obviously brain-dead to be an authentic story. Surely, this was a parody.

Then ESPN made it even better by defending this moronic decision. They put out a statement to Yashar Ali of the Huffington Post: “This wasn’t about offending anyone. It was about the reasonable possibility that because of his name he would be subjected to memes and jokes and who knows what else…No politically correct efforts. No race issues. Just trying to be supportive of a young guy who felt it best to avoid the potential zoo.”

The “potential zoo” here is all in the fevered brains of the ESPN brass. When we watch college football games, we rarely know the names of the announcers. We care even less.  But what if the public knew? Stop the presses! This just  shows just how hypersensitive they are to racial issues. As the story broke, longtime ESPN anchor Bob Ley tweeted the perfect response: “Rather worried my employee ID/pass may not admit me in the AM.”

Some liberals suggested this doesn’t show ESPN is liberal. It shows ESPN is a “cynical corporation” trying to distance itself from any hint of a political controversy in social media. But the outcomes are the same. The Left is dictating its terms to another national network. 

Then ESPN made it better still. ESPN president John Skipper declared the network’s “good intentions” were “hijacked” by the “personal agenda” of Clay Travis, who broke the story for Fox Sports. 

So Fox Sports is to blame for ESPN’s nuttiness. On “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Travis shot back: “This is the problem with ESPN and their leadership. They talk to us like we are a bunch of idiots and imbeciles and sell crap…This is not true.”

College football will go on, but what lingers is the notion that sports is almost a secondary matter at ESPN. The idea that sports is an escape from politics is disparaged as almost criminal in the hyperventilating Trump Era. Demonstrating you are “woke” –  actively marching on the “right side of history”– is the path to job security. On the other hand, expressing conservative views on air or in social media gets you canned, as proven by a straight line from Rush Limbaugh to Mike Ditka to Curt Schilling to Britt McHenry.

Taking ESPN to the left can’t look like a wise strategy as the network’s subscriber base has declined from a peak of 100 million households in 2011 to less than 88 million now. But other liberal networks have shown that their business imperatives are less important than audaciously demonstrating their “courage” and commitment to the “social justice warriors.”

ESPN Removes Asian-American Announcer from Game—Because His Name is Robert Lee

ESPNESPN

Following violent riots in Charlottesville, Virginia, ESPN is apparently attempting to avoid future controversy by removing any anchors or reporters whose names might offend fans in the area—but its removal of an Asian-American announcer who shares the name of a Confederate general is creating an ample amount of controversy.

Robert Lee, a part-time announcer for the network, is receiving air time in a whole new way after it was revealed that ESPN removed him from the roster for coverage of University of Virginia’s first home football game in Charlottesville on Sept. 2.

In a statement released on Tuesday, the network said:

“We collectively made the decision with Robert to switch games as the tragic events in Charlottesville were unfolding, simply because of the coincidence of his name. In that moment it felt right to all parties. It’s a shame that this is even a topic of conversation and we regret that who calls play-by-play for a football game has become an issue.”

Robert E. Lee was a general of the Confederate Army in Virginia during the Civil War. Quotes attributed to Lee commemorate his distaste for the war that made him famous, such as “It is well that war is so terrible—otherwise we would grow too fond of it,” and “What a cruel thing war is… to fill our hearts with hatred instead of love for our neighbors.”

While Lee surrendered to the Union Army in 1865, and the Confederacy lost the war, statues commemorating him and other Confederates can be found across the country. Those statues have recently become a subject of controversy, leading to a series of overnight removals in locations such as the University of Texas.

However, while the presence of these Confederate statues have angered many, the presence of an ESPN announcer who happens to share the name of a Confederate general does not seem to be creating nearly as much controversy—unless it is from the outrage surrounding his removal.

One Twitter user wrote, If this society can’t tell the difference from ‘Robert E Lee’ from 150+ years ago to an Asian sportscaster ‘Robert Lee’ we are in trouble.”

Another user pointed out the possible hypocrisy that could occur if any athletes involved shared the same fate as the sportscast, writing, “@ESPN if an athletes name is Robert Lee are you going to not show their game?”

Another Twitter user even posted a side-by-side comparison of the two Robert Lee’s:

While Confederate statues are often called symbols of racism, the fact is that removing them—or even removing TV announcers who happen to share their names—will not end racism in this country. As The Free Thought Project reported in the wake of the Charlottesville riots:

“A statue holds no magical power to make people racists. If anything, the monuments to former racists serve as reminders that the state can and always will be open to the influence of bigotry—and only the state has the power to enforce racism. 

An ignorant racist is exactly that—however, if society grants that ignorant racist a political position or a badge and a gun, this ignorant racist now has power over you. Removing or keeping a piece of concrete will never change this.”

Another Revealing Interview With Robert Kennedy Jr. On Vaccines







A recent interview was conducted by STAT News reporter Helen Branswell with Robert F. Kennedy Jr. from The World Mercury Project, an organization whose mission is to raise public awareness of the dangers and sources of mercury, with the ultimate goal of banning all uses of mercury on a global level. They believe the public desperately needs  accurate information about the sources and dangers of mercury, as this will allow them to better protect themselves and their families from the potentially devastating effects of this potent neurotoxin.

They emphasize:

The average person does not know that mercury is the second most toxic element on the planet, nor do they know that it is an incredibly potent toxin even at small exposure levels. Once in the body, mercury has a high affinity for moving into the brain where it can become trapped for decades. Once in the brain, mercury causes a chronic inflammatory process in the tissue which has been connected to autism, Alzheimer’s, multiple sclerosis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease) and many more adverse health consequences.

When it comes to vaccines in particular, contrary to popular belief, many vaccines still contain unsafe levels of mercury. The flu and tetanus vaccine, for example, still contains 25 mcg of mercury. Mercury has also seeped into the food chain and hundreds of other medical pharmaceutical products, along with dental fillings.

None of these preservatives have ever been proven safe by science, so what is going on here? Why do we continue to allow this to happen?

This is precisely why Kennedy, along with several other supporters, held a press conference offering $100,000 USD to any scientist or journalist who could provide evidence showing it is safe to inject mercury into babies. While doing so, he presented approximately 100 studies that proved it is unsafe to do so.

Despite their long use as active agents of medicines and fungicides, the safety levels of these substances have never been determined, either for animals or for adult humans—much less for fetuses, newborns, infants, and children.”

–  Dr. Jose G. Dores, professor at the University of Brasilia’s Department of Nutritional Sciences

A fairly recent meta-analysis published in the journal Bio Med Research International found:

The studies upon which the CDC relies and over which it exerted some level of control report that there is no increased risk of autism from exposure to organic Hg in vaccines, and some of these studies even reported that exposure to Thimerosal appeared to decrease the risk of autism. These six studies are in sharp contrast to research conducted by independent researchers over the past 75+ years that have consistently found Thimerosal to be harmful. As mentioned in the Introduction section, many studies conducted by independent investigators have found Thimerosal to be associated with neurodevelopmental disorders. Considering that there are many studies conducted by independent researchers which show a relationship between Thimerosal and neurodevelopmental disorders, the results of the six studies examined in this review, particularly those showing the protective effects of Thimerosal, should bring into question the validity of the methodology used in the studies.

So, as you can see, there is clearly a cause for concern.

The Interview

H: So when I had first approached you for this interview, the question I wanted to ask you related to the Vaccine Safety Commission. You had announced in January that you were going to head it, after you met with then President Elect Trump. It’s been a number of months now and there hasn’t been any public discussion. He made some comments in February about being interested in looking into autism but there hasn’t been anything else since. so we’ve been wondering, where does this stand? So I guess my first question to you is: Are you going to be heading a Vaccine Safety Commission set up by the White House or by President Trump?

B: I’ve had no discussions with the White House specifically about the Vaccine Safety Commission probably since February.

H: Okay

B: I’ve spoken with the White House about other issues relating to vaccine safety and I’ve had a number of follow up meetings.

H: Can I ask you who you met with?

B: Well I’ve met with high level officials in the White House and they’ve arranged meetings for me with HHS and White House officials and various agency officials including [NIH Director] Francis Collins and [NIH Principle Deputy Director] Lawrence Tabek, Tony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Infectious Disease, Linda Birnbaum, Director of the National Institute of Developmental Health Sciences, and Dr. Diana Bianchi, the head of the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Health and Human Development.

H: Right

B: And then over at FDA, I met with Peter Marks, Director of the Center for Biological Evaluation and Research (CBER) and Dr. Scott Winiecki, from the Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER), Dr. Wiley Chambers, also from CBER, and some other officials there.

H: Ok

B: I can’t remember, at this moment, all of the people that we met with but I’m happy to send you a list of names.

H: And this is since the change of the administration?

B: Yeah, the White House officials and HHS officials accompanied me and arranged the meeting. I did it at their request.

H: At their request? Theirs?

B: Yeah

H: But who is they?

B: The White House

H: Okay. All right. So you said you’ve had no discussion since February about the Vaccine Safety Commission. Do you think that…

B: Again, not specifically about the Commission.

H: Okay. Do you think that idea is dead? Do you think it’s in abeyance?

B: I don’t know. You’d have to ask the White House. It may be that it’s evolved. I’ve been told that the President is still interested in this issue and that he wants me to have further meetings with the regulatory agencies and with the White House. Like I said, I have not talked to anybody in the White House about the Commission.

H: Okay. Do you think that there is the possibility that the Commission is going ahead but not with you on it?

B: Again, you’d have to ask the White House.

H: Okay. So you know, in February, I was doing some research in preparation for this, and I saw a story that Politico ran in February in which you had mentioned that after you made the announcement. You later spoke with the President and the two of you, I think, agreed that, and the expression used was that you’d ‘gotten out over your skis’ on this issue. Do you think you were not meant to announce it or was it perhaps that discussions internally hadn’t been finalized? What does that mean?

B: Are you saying that I spoke with President Trump, and that he—

H: It was a Politico story from February, I can send a link, that was a follow up to where this issue was going and it quotes you saying that you had talked to the President after having disclosed that this Commission was going to be set up and that there was some discussion between you, and that you, and it wasn’t clear if it was you or the two of you or the issues, had gotten out over its skis. Is that not a term that you used in relation to this issue in question?

B: Well it’s not something that the President ever said to me.

H: Okay. Had he been okay with—

B: Do you want to talk about vaccine safety or vaccine science at all?

H: I haven’t finished asking questions about this. Are you disappointed that, so far, there hasn’t been a commission set up to do what you said you were going to be doing in January?

B: The Commission was not my idea. I was asked to chair a Commission and I agreed that if a Commission were created, that I would do that, I would take on that task. But, you know, that’s up to the White House and how they want to handle this issue.

H: Right. Okay.

B: It wasn’t my idea. I am happy with any steps that are taken to make vaccines safer and to improve the scientific integrity of the process. And to reform the process so that vaccines are subject to the same kind of safety scrutiny and safety testing that other drugs are subjected to. We need, prior to licensing vaccines, to do gold standard safety testing like every other drug requires, before approval.

H: Right

B: We need to do double blind placebo testing. We shouldn’t be able to limit safety testing on vaccines to three or four days, or a couple of months, when every other drug requires five or six years of safety testing. Because the consequences, particularly when injecting mercury or aluminum into babies, the consequences may be latent. In other words, the condition may not manifest or be diagnosed until age three or four. The current protocols, allow safety testing periods that are sometimes as short as 48 hours. Those are not going to disclose the kind of dangers that the public and the regulators ought to know about.

H: Okay

B: Many of the vaccines that are currently approved had five or six days of safety testing. That means that if the child has a seizure on the sixth or seventh day, it’s never seen. If the child dies [after the sixth day], it’s never seen. If the child gets food allergies or ADD or ADHD, which don’t manifest for four or five years, or autism, which usually isn’t diagnosed until age four, the regulators will never see that prior to licensing the vaccine.

H: Well, If something happens four or five years outside of an event, how do you know what event to attribute it to?

B: Well the answer to that question, of course, is double blind placebo testing. You have a control group and you have a study group. [The study group receives the drug and the control group receives an identical looking pill that is inert. Researchers then compare long term health outcomes and look for disease clusters].

H: Yes. Sir, that’s done all the time. That’s done. That is done all the time.

B: It’s not done for vaccines. It is, of course, required for other drugs but not vaccines.

H: What, double blind placebo testing? Sure it is. Sure it is.

B: It’s not required for vaccines.

H: Vaccines are tested that way all the time.

B: You’re wrong about that. It is not required for most vaccines. I know this is surprising to you and it’s shocking to most people, because people and  journalists such as yourself assume that vaccines are encountering the same kind of rigorous safety testing as other drugs, including multi-year, double blind placebo tests as other drugs. But the fact is, vaccines don’t. And the reason for that is because they’re classified as “biologics”.

H: Right, but I’ve read a lot of vaccine studies. They are double blind placebo tested.

B: You’re wrong about that. They’re not required to do double blind placebo tests. Now, I don’t know of any [children’s] vaccine that actually has done true [inert placebo] double blind placebo testing. In any case, none of them have more than a few months of double blind placebo testing. This will not allow you to spot illnesses like autism that aren’t diagnosed for four or five years.

H: Okay…

B: Second of all, in most vaccines, for example the Gardasil vaccine, they don’t use true placebos. In other words they don’t use inert placebos. For example [in the case of] Merck’s or Glaxo Smith Kline’s [HPV] Gardasil vaccines, they tested them for six months against an aluminum adjuvant that is highly neurotoxic. So if we don’t use a true placebo how can you determine whether the vaccine is safe?

H: Okay. Could we move actually back to the question I wanted to ask? I had some questions that I want to ask. It’s a Q and A. I ask the questions. That’s the way it works. You answer the questions or don’t answer if you like. I was wondering, in the time since you spoke with the president in January and were asked to chair the Vaccine Safety Commission, the senior HHS positions have been filled. They appointed Brenda Fitzgerald at CDC and Francis Collins was reappointed as Director at NIH, Scott Gottlieb to FDA and Jerome Adams as Surgeon General. All of them are on the record as supporting vaccines, and very supportive of vaccines. I was wondering if that is disappointing to you if you would have hoped for different people or people with a different mindset in those positions?

B: Well I would prefer regulators who are willing to look at the science and who are conversant with the safety science, who are familiar with the vast library of scholarly literature published and available on Pub Med which indicates that many vaccine ingredients, particularly aluminum and mercury, can pose a threat to children.

H: Right. So…

B: And as I said I’ve been having meetings with the regulators and urging them to read the literature.

H: And I did want to ask you as well, if you had any qualms about doing this work with President Trump. People who are concerned about the environment find this administration very unsettling. Given that, I was wondering if you had any qualms about working with him, because you’re so renowned as an environmentalist.

B: I don’t like President Trump’s environmental policies and I would not endorse them. I would say that the Trump administration is essentially destroying 30 years of my work on environmental issues and the work of many other people. I’ve written extensively on that and I think people understand that my position is clear, and that my work vaccine safety public health and child safety is not an endorsement of his President Trump’s environmental policy.

H: Have you made your position known to him? Have you had the chance to express those views to him?

B: Well in my initial meeting with him we had that discussion and he’s known my position for many years. Prior to his presidency I litigated against President Trump on environmental issues. I testified two weeks ago before an EPA hearing in opposition to the administration’s gutting of the Clean Water Act. I don’t think there’s any question with him or with any member of the administration that I’m opposed to Scott Pruitt and I’m opposed to walking away from Paris and I’m opposed to the subversion of the Clean Water Act, so I don’t think President Trump or anyone in the administration or anywhere in the country has any doubts about where I stand on those issues.

H: Right

B: If President Trump asked me to serve on a commission on fracking or on pipelines or global warming, I would do it. If I can make improvements in child health, if I can protect American children and prevent injuries and make vaccines safer, as safe as possible, and prevent injuries to these subsets, these population subsets who are vulnerable to injuries, particularly from mercury and from aluminum, I will do whatever I can and talk to anybody that I need to, including you—

H: (laughs) Okay

B: —to improve child health, the health of American children.

H: Can I get back, and I think this will probably be my last question, you’ve mentioned mercury a lot of times. Thimerosal is not in most vaccines given to children at this point and in fact has not been in childhood vaccines at this point since 2001, I believe. You know, studies have also shown that since it has been taken out autism rates have increased which would suggest that there isn’t correlation. And that’s what most scientists would say. But why do keep talking about mercury when children aren’t getting exposed to it in a childhood vaccine?

B: That is an industry talking point. That just simply isn’t true.

H: (laughs)

B: Mercury was taken out of three pediatric vaccines, DTaP, HiB and hepatitis B in 2003 but the same year, the CDC recommended flu shots for pregnant women and for children at six months of age and during every year of life. In the past 13 years, since 2004, most flu shots were loaded with mega doses of mercury and by the way—

H: —it’s only in multi dose vials and it’s not in single vaccine that’s packaged in a syringe already, and it was never in the live, attenuated vaccines.

B: Well here’s the numbers, and the numbers change every year and Thimerosal levels have trended downward in the past five years but 2007 was typical [of the years prior to 2012]. In 2007 there were 128 million flu vaccine doses manufactured in this country, and only 11 million were Thimerosal free. Over 90% of vaccinated Americans received huge, huge doses of mercury—not “trace amounts” as the industry likes to claim. “Trace amounts” means less than one microgram. The flu vaccines contained 25 micrograms which is 25 times “trace amounts” and over 31 times EPAs safe exposure levels for an average six month old male baby and potentially hundreds of times the levels that would be safe for a growing fetus.

B: So today, in the last three or four years, that [128 million] number [of Thimerosal loaded flu shots] has been reduced to 48 million. So today there are around 48 million Thimerosal containing doses, so about a third, were loaded with mercury.

H: And when you say this year, are you talking about 2016 or 2017?

B: Yeah, the 2016-2017 flu season. So that’s 48 million people, including pregnant women and little babies who are getting mega doses of mercury. That’s a national health crisis right there. Mercury is 100 times more neurotoxic than lead. Why would you inject that into a little baby or pregnant women? It’s insane. And mercury has never been safety tested.

H: Mmm Hmm

B: So anybody who tells you that mercury is safe, the question I would ask for them is “Can you show me a study?”. If fact, William Egan, [Acting Director of the Office of Vaccines Research and Review in CBER in the FDA], testified before Congress and was asked by Committee Chairman Dan Burton “Has there every been a safety test on Thimerosal?” and he acknowledged that there has not.

H: There’s been an IOM report that concluded that there was no risk from the amount of Thimerosal in vaccines.

B: No. No. No. IOM’s 2004 report did not exonerate mercury. The only thing IOM did was look at a series of epidemiological studies that had been recently created by CDC and these papers only dealt with one issue, which was autism. So all of the other injuries, that are known to be associated with Thimerosal including ADD, ADHD, SIDS, speech delay, language delay, [OCD, anorexia, mental retardation, depression] narcolepsy, tics, allergies, sleep disorders, Tourette’s Syndrome and many others. None of those have ever been studied.

H: Uh

B: And IOM never claimed that Thimerosal was safe. In fact I talked to Kathleen Stratton from IOM and Marie McCormick [at Harvard School of Public Health at the time] and said “Why aren’t you looking at these other injuries?” and they said “The CDC told us not to”.

H: Okay

B: CDC only wanted IOM to study autism. And the reason for that is, of course, because they had created these three phony Danish epidemiological studies and one widely discredited study of American autism data. IOM based its report principally on those defective studies. IOM never, ever exonerated Thimerosal from those other injuries. That is, again, industry propaganda which you are parroting and you should not be doing that. You should be looking at the science for yourself.

H: Right

B: I’m happy to sit down with you and walk through the science. I’m happy to debate anybody on the science and I can tell you, if they debate me, they will lose and it’s not because I’m a good debater. The science on this side is overwhelming.

H: Right. Ok. Ok. Thank you. I am good. I need to speak to my editors. I will send you a copy of the audio from the conversation and I will keep Freddie abreast on where things stand in terms of timing of when my story might run and I thank you for your time.

B: Thank you

H: Okay good bye
