The Vaccine/Autism Connection and it’s Epidemic Caused by the CDC
How The CDC And Vaccine Court Create An Epidemic Of Autism

There are three courts in the land: the court of justice (Judicial branch of government), the court of public opinion (i.e., news media), and the Vaccine Court. The first two courts are public. The third is private. Because the Vaccine Court is hidden out of sight, most people never learn of its existence.
Why Hide a Court Unless You Have Something To Hide?
The Vaccine Court is a federal court, without a jury, run by Special Masters that pay out compensation in millions of dollars each year to families of vaccine-injured casualties. Families have a statute of limitations of 3 years from the onset of symptoms for injuries after the administration of a vaccine. In the case of death, only 2 years. Is justice served when parents make their case against government attorneys of the Justice Department in a government-run courtroom?
Normally, when a product fails, the burden of proof rests with the manufacturer. However, in Vaccine Court, the burden of proof rests squarely on the family to show a connection between cause and effect. Proving such a connection is not easy since diagnostic criteria by the American Psychiatric Association has changed several times. Cases can take 2 to ten years to resolve. Therefore, recipients of financial awards represent only a fraction of petitioners, and a smaller fraction of actual vaccine injuries that happen every day.
A total of $3 billion has been paid out to families since 1989 and more than $120.4 million has been paid to cover attorneys’ fees and other legal costs. All awards are funded by an excise tax on vaccines imposed on each dose of a vaccine set by the CDC, paid for by the taxpayer (i.e., the injured party).
What You Don’t Know Can Hurt You
Most families who suffer injury or death from vaccines have at least two things in common: 1) they were denied informed-consent by their doctor (package insert) so they could not make an informed-choice, and 2) they were not told that any adverse reaction should be reported by a doctor to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), the database that compiles information on each vaccine injury and death.
Without informed consent, parents feel rushed to judgment. They do not know that combining childhood vaccines at one visit is not safe. They do not learn that each vaccine contains multiple antigens (i.e., pneumococcal vaccine contains 13 antigens), carcinogens (formaldehyde), antibiotics, fetal tissue cells, and heavy metals (aluminum, mercury). They are not told that since 1990, the VAERS database has received more than 500,000 reports of suspected adverse reactions to vaccines. Or that VAERS is a passive reporting system that reflects a 50-fold underreporting of adverse events representing only 1% of actual events. Without real information, parents do not question the growing vaccine schedule deemed “safe and effective” and Congress has no incentive to abolish a Vaccine Court that serves to hide the truth about a growing vaccine-injury epidemic.
The federal government cannot be expected to limit itself. – Tom Woods, Tenth Amendment Center
The media is complicit in hiding the truth and downplays the “so-called vaccine court” to dismiss legitimacy of vaccine damage, as seen during a CNN interview with Dr. Jon Poling, the father of Hannah Poling, the first award recipient of the Vaccine Court to receive a lifetime settlement of $20 million and a one year sum of $1.5 million. The ruling stated that Hannah’s diagnosis of autism, encephalopathy and seizures was caused by vaccines. Since Hannah’s case, 83 cases of vaccine-associated autism have been settled in federal Vaccine Court but were never reported in the media. In March 2015 the government removed the latest vaccine injury court statistics (data from 2014 and 2015) from a public chart, which no longer reflects the rise in court payouts.
Landmark Autism Case
The Vaccine Court’s first landmark decision came quietly in 2010 based on the strong association between the vaccines Hannah Poling received at 19 months (five vaccines — diphtheria–tetanus–acellular pertussis, Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib), measles–mumps–rubella (MMR), varicella, and inactivated polio) and the autism she subsequently developed.
Autism is a broad label for neurologic and psychological impairment which is now an epidemic, with 1 in 45 kids diagnosed, and 1 in 10 with ADHD. Trends show that by 2025, half of all children will be diagnosed on the autism spectrum. Hannah’s signs included problems with language, communication, and behavior — all features of autism spectrum disorder. The court’s ruling read: “encephalopathy caused by a mitochondrial enzyme deficit.” Encephalopathy describes loss of brain function or activity and is listed as an adverse effect on the package inserts of many vaccines, including the ones Hannah received.
The Great Contradictions
The CDC and government continue to push vaccines as “safe and effective” even while they can point to no double-blind, placebo-controlled studies that science uses as the Gold Standard for safety and effectiveness.
The CDC promotes vaccines as necessary for “community immunity” (which replaces “herd immunity”) even thought it purchases vaccines from the industry it regulates. A conflict of Interest.
In 1986, under pressure from the pharmaceutical industry, Congress established a no-fault compensation system for children who suffer vaccine injury or death. The NCVIA resulted from a flood of lawsuits in the wake of the TV special, Vaccine Roulette, that presented evidence on the dangers of the DTP (diptheria-pertussis-tetanus) vaccine. See list of ingredients in DTP vaccine, and others, here. The liability to Big Pharma had become too great relative to the potential profit, so Congress obliged (i.e., blackmail).
The CDC continues to add new vaccines to the childhood schedule even though in 2011, the Supreme Court ruled, in Bruesewitz v. Wyeth, that vaccines are “unavoidably unsafe.” Since the Bruecewitz v. Wyeth decision, vaccine makers have been exempted from all liability regarding their vaccine products. The decision read: “[n]o vaccine manufacturer shall be liable in a civil action for damages arising from a vaccine-related injury or death associated with the administration of a vaccine after October 1, 1988, if the injury or death resulted from side-effects that were unavoidable even though the vaccine was properly prepared and was accompanied by proper directions and warnings.”
The CDC allows neurotoxic aluminum in vaccines based on the studied effects of ingested aluminum (vs. injected aluminum). Aluminum you eat is eliminated rapidly. However, Injectable aluminum as an adjuvant in vaccines is meant to stick around. CDC’s pdf on aluminum toxicity admits, “Aluminum may play a role in the disease development by acting as a co-factor in the chain of pathological events resulting in Alzheimer’s disease.”
The CDC pushes vaccine mandates even as its own lead researcher, William Thompson, PhD blew the whistle on the corruption, manipulation, and destruction of data used to conceal the link between autism and the MMR vaccine. CDC documents have been released by William Thompson for anyone to review and research, including Congress, which has a copy. Meanwhile, CDC continues to block Dr. Thompson from testifying.
More whistleblowers: Vaccine maker, Merck, is in court facing allegations of wrongdoing from two former Merck scientists who blew the whistle in 2010 on federal charges of fraud for fabricating results in its vaccine studies. In April 2016, a whistleblower filed lawsuit against CDC for major data errors in autism rates. In September of 2016, CDC demoted another employee whistleblower for concerns on the accuracy of the Zika test.
