What Sharyl Attkisson Told Me about Vaccines

by Jon Rappoport

“The complete failure of this year’s flu vaccine, even by conventional standards, is a major scandal at the CDC. To distract the press and public, we now have a fake epidemic of measles, and pressure to take the vaccine, take all vaccines all the time. This is called a psyop. Psyops build fake realities.” (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)

As my readers know, I’ve written many articles about vaccines, covering: mandatory shots; the pseudoscience of vaccination; severe adverse effects; poisons in shots; disastrous vaccination campaigns, and so on.

This article is about something else. It’s about who is allowed to speak fully in mainstream media.

If truth were the objective of news, you would see reasoned debates between pro and anti-vax proponents on major networks—-but that’s a joke because no reasoned debates are permitted on any sensitive subject.

When it comes to vaccines, major media are all about “what doctors tell us.” If I may be so bold, who cares what doctors say?

Who cares?

Why are doctors a privileged class? Why do they get a free pass?

Let’s see…oh yes, it’s because government and drug companies back them up. The last time I looked, this has nothing to do with the truth.

It has to do with monopoly, though.

“I’m a doctor, and of course I’m pro-vaccine.”

“Welcome, Doctor, good to have you on the show.”

Or: “I’m not a doctor.”

“Sorry, you’re out.”

Or: “I’m a doctor, and I’m against vaccines.”

“You’re suffering from a mental disorder, Doctor, and you’re a traitor to your profession and a threat to the future of the human race.”

Media construct this premise: the pro-vaccine “experts” are truthtellers, and the people who question vaccines are “denialists.” That’s how the issue is framed. Ahead of time. On purpose.

The millions of brainwashed people who watch the news every night and genuflect and live inside that dream are content to believe “the good doctors.” They have to believe someone, because they have no opinion of their own. They don’t have the tools to form a reasoned opinion. If a doctor told them that four shots of bull sperm would protect their children from a virus floating in from the Orion Belt, they’d line up their kiddies at clinics and drug stores for the “free” jab.

An anti-vaccine reporter at a local TV station once told me she’d been labeled “trouble.” She wasn’t permitted to air any vaccine story, for fear that through word or gesture she might trigger a scandal.

Part of that scandal? Scores of viewers would contact the station and side with the anti-vaccine reporter. The execs knew those viewers were out there and were also “trouble.”

On August 27, 2014, a long-time researcher at the CDC, William Thompson, confessed in print that he and his colleagues had cooked a vital vaccine study to “prove” the MMR vaccine had no connection to autism…when in fact that was a lie. The vaccine did have a connection.

A media storm should have followed. A respected researcher coming out of the woodwork and saying, “I lied”? That’s a huge story for major media and medical media.

But? There was a virtual blackout on the story. There still is.

The vaccine establishment must be protected.

In the fall of 2009, Sharyl Attkisson, working at CBS News, blew the doors open on a huge Swine Flu scandal at the CDC:

The CDC, whose job it was to accurately report the number of Swine Flu cases in the US, had stopped counting. Stopped counting.

Why? Because the overwhelming number of blood samples from diagnosed or likely Swine Flu patients, coming back from testing labs, showed these people didn’t have Swine Flu or any flu.

That fact torpedoed the entire CDC propaganda- fear campaign aimed at convincing Americans to take the Swine Flu vaccine.

So…Sharyl Attkisson’s effort to move this story from the CBS News website on to the national nightly-news television broadcast was shot down.

Here is a piece from a 2014 interview I did with Attkisson:

Q: In 2009, you spearheaded coverage of the so-called Swine Flu pandemic. You discovered that, in the summer of 2009, the Centers for Disease Control, ignoring their federal mandate, stopped counting Swine Flu cases in America. Yet they continued to stir up fear about the “pandemic,” without having any real measure of its impact. Wasn’t that another investigation of yours that was shut down? Wasn’t there more to find out?

A: The implications of the story were even worse than that. We discovered through our FOI efforts that before the CDC mysteriously stopped counting Swine Flu cases, they had learned that almost none of the cases they had counted as Swine Flu was, in fact, Swine Flu or any sort of flu at all! The interest in the story from one [CBS] executive was very enthusiastic. He said it was “the most original story” he’d seen on the whole Swine Flu epidemic. But others pushed to stop it and, in the end, no broadcast wanted to touch it. We aired numerous stories pumping up the idea of an epidemic, but not the one that would shed original, new light on all the hype. It was fair, accurate, legally approved and a heck of a story. With the CDC keeping the true Swine Flu stats secret, it meant that many in the public took and gave their children an experimental vaccine that may not have been necessary.

Q: You’ve revealed serious problems caused by vaccines. Have you run into opposition as a result of covering these stories?

A: This is a long discussion but yes, it is one of the most well funded, well orchestrated efforts I’ve ever seen on a story. Many reporters, if not all, who have tried to factually cover this topic have experienced the same opposition as have researchers who dared to uncover vaccine side effects. Those who don’t want the stories explored want to censor the information from the public entirely, lest the public draw the “wrong” conclusions about the facts. The media has largely bought into the conflicted government, political and medical complex propaganda on the topic that marginalizes researchers, journalists and parents who dare to speak to the scientific facts they’ve uncovered or to their own experiences. It’s a giant scandal of its own.

Q: I know you’ve had problems with your Wikipedia page. What happened there?

A: Long story short: there is a concerted effort by special interests who exploit Wikipedia editing privileges to control my biographical page to disparage my reporting on certain topics and skew the information. Judging from the editing, the interest(s) involved relates to the pharmaceutical/vaccine industry. I am far from alone…

Does that tell you something about the way major media cover vaccine stories?

There is even more.

The staggering capper on this tale? Roughly three weeks after Attkisson’s Swine Flu revelations appeared in print, the CDC, obviously in great distress over the exposure, decided to double down. The best lie to tell would be a huge lie.

Here, from a November 12, 2009, WebMD article is the CDC’s response: “Shockingly, 14 million to 34 million U.S. residents — the CDC’s best guess is 22 million — came down with H1N1 swine flu by Oct. 17 [2009].” (“22 million cases of Swine Flu in US,” by Daniel J. DeNoon)

The CDC had no facts or stats or lab tests to confirm ANY of their reported numbers of Swine Flu cases in America. So they said: 22 MILLION CASES.

But don’t worry. Be happy. Everything the government tells you about disease and the need to take vaccines is perfectly true.

Perfectly, absolutely.



Entire national media calling on doctors to violate fundamental medical ethics in push for vaccines


(NaturalNews) Like the infamous brownshirts who marched lockstep in obedience to their beloved dictator, nearly every major mainstream media outlet today is simultaneously and savagely ripping at those who choose not to vaccinate, calling for free-thinking parents to be jailed, have their children taken from them, and be forcibly injected with whatever vaccines the state deems necessary.

But this unified affront to medical freedom has one common and baleful theme that needs to be recognized by all, regardless of your personal views on vaccines — the corporate media machine is actively encouraging the medical community to abandon all established medical ethics and literally force potentially life-threatening medical treatments on people without their informed consent.

The American Medical Association (AMA) in its Code of Medical Ethics clearly outlines how physicians and caretakers are to treat their patients, and it looks nothing like the rancorous abuse by doctors that’s taking place in the U.S. today. Patients are to make their own decisions about medical treatments, according to the AMA, with doctors merely providing unbiased information as appropriate.

The “Informed Consent” section of the AMA’s Code of Ethics says the following about how medical treatments are to be administered:

The patient should make his or her own determination about treatment. … Informed consent is a basic policy in both ethics and law that physicians must honor, unless the patient is unconscious or otherwise incapable of consenting and harm from failure to treat is imminent.

One major thing worth noting here is that informed consent is a basic policy in both ethics and law that physicians must honor, meaning it’s not optional. An honorable physician abiding by this standard ethics code will not badger or berate a mother who has questions about vaccine safety, for instance. His responsibility is to help patients make the best medical choice possible from all available options, or as the AMA puts it:

The physician has an ethical obligation to help the patient make choices from among the therapeutic alternatives consistent with good medical practice.

You can read the full “Informed Consent” section from the AMA’s Code of Medical Ethics here:


Any “doctor” who tries to force vaccines on you is an amoral quack violating basic ethical standards

So when so-called doctors like Los Angeles-based pediatrician Charles Goodman announce to the world that they won’t treat children whose parents choose not to vaccinate them, they’re also telling parents everywhere that they don’t care a lick about medical ethics. If you don’t agree with whatever their god complex tells them is the appropriate treatment for you or your children, you can hit the road.

The more extreme fringe of pro-vaccine zealotry wants to take things a step further, holding parents of unvaccinated children criminally liable when children who were vaccinated develop an infectious disease (most likely from the vaccine itself, or from other vaccinated children) and blaming the “anti-vaccine movement.” Whether or not the cause of infection can be proven is irrelevant — the stage is already being set to blame the spread of all infectious diseases on the unvaccinated.

Besides the inherent dishonesty in this overt propaganda campaign, it belies virtually all foundational elements of civilized, ethical medicine. What the mainstream media is doing with this outrageous campaign against free medical choice is encouraging the medical community to abandon all ethics in favor of forced medical fascism.

“Mandatory vaccination policies are a violation of medical ethics and human rights,” explains the book Vaccine Epidemic: How Corporate Greed, Biased Science, and Coercive Government Threaten Our Human Rights, Our Health, and Our Children. “Mandatory vaccination policies violate fundamental moral principles, and they have a profound and deleterious effect on medical practice and the relationship between patient and physician.”



BREAKING: Senate Panel Discusses Combating Anti-Vaccine Influence on Parents

The Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions have convened to discuss state and local roles in protecting Americans from measles.

The major focus of this panel and discussion was on the cutting of 317 funding through the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and the pharmaceutical corporations being threatened by declining vaccination rates.

Anne Schuchat, director of the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the anti-vaccination generation have affected the public health agenda to push vaccines. Parents not wanting their children to be vaccinated was discussed as an issue of parental ignorance that the unvaccinated are at higher risk.

The CDC mentioned the “misinformation” in various sources online that are influencing and causing complacency on the issue of public health.

The 317 grant program of the ACA has a #50 million reduction in funding for health outreach and education, will be billed to insurance companies through the CDC.

The CDC, tracking the ratio of autism rates to vaccination, based their stance on statistical data to decipher the correlation; however no direct evidence is used to come to this summation. Tracking the trends in autism and trends in vaccinations is important to the CDC because it is the basis of their argument for vaccines.

It was suggested that immigrant’s children may be part of the measles outbreak problem. Schuchat responded that state and local health departments continue to ensure that those coming into the country are vaccinated “regardless of where they are from”.

When immigrants come to the US, it is required that children provide documentation that they have had immunizations; however for adults there is a more laxed policy wherein it is assumed that “if they survived to adulthood, they’ve been exposed to measles”.

It is unknown whether there is a correlation between vaccine uptake and autism, according to the CDC.

The measles outbreak is spreading through “the wealthy in California” who are choosing not to vaccinate their children.

Only 59% under 30 years old believe that vaccines are necessary. Schuchat asserted that there is no scientific evidence that vaccines:

• No toxic additives in ingredients
• No correlation to vaccine and autism
• Children cannot develop immunity o disease by eating healthy
• Vaccines protect kids

Senator Elisabeth Warren asserted that vaccines are the most effective and scientifically proven way to keep children safe from diseases.

With 2013-2014 record of vaccines annually down 90% for immunization and rates expected to decline further, Schuchat explained that live viral vaccines are effective when the community participates.

The number of shots are a large concern; however the vaccines are recommended when they are most effective during the first 2-5 years of life.

Being that vaccine compliance is a state issue, the CDC and the federal government is now at the mercy of strong advisement that children be inoculated.

Senator Tammy Baldwin said the necessity of scientific data and production of pharmaceuticals must be protected regardless of the newest movement to reduce the amount of vaccinated “pediatric Americans” across the nation.

Schuchat said globally the CDC has allied with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF) and GAVI to bring vaccinations to 3rd world nations to keep infectious diseases from entering the US via immigrants.

Senator Frankel voiced concerned about the next potential measles disease and outbreak situation. Schuchat responded that viruses are mutating at strange rates and it is critical to strengthen public health with funding because of SARS, MERS, Ebola and Measles.

Kelly Moore, director of the immunization program at the Tennessee Department of Health (TDH), said in 2015 just 100 children in kindergarten were not inoculated. The local state government have allowed schools and public health partners to share data and information on children to identify those who were not vaccinated.

Moore said the MMR vaccine would protect adults and if a more speedy response were implemented and media used to optimize protection tactics through a well-funded agency, preventable diseases and outbreaks would no longer be a problem.

School officials must be utilized to help parents decide to immunize their children and Moore agrees that “local validators” are more influential that government.

To push more compliance with the humanpapilloma virus (HPV) vaccine , Moore believes in using grassroots efforts to convince parents to give Gardasil to their daughters. Because Gardasil is “bundled” with the routine vaccines for children, it is easier for children to receive the inoculation.

Moore said the private practices and philanthropic organizations are married to make the job easier when pushing professionals to coerce their patients into vaccinating children. These relationships have allowed for more immunizations in Tennessee.

American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has backed Mark Sawyer, professor of Clinical Pediatrics, Division of Infectious Diseases, who was vehement that there is a reemergence of vaccine preventable diseases.

This is a signal that bigger outbreaks are to come. The increasing of outbreaks are occurring because we have too many unimmunized children in the US. Because it is predictable, the pockets of unvaccinated children is an increasing problem.

The shared public health problem of unvaccinated children is out of control and outbreaks cannot be controlled.

Parents are misinformed about vaccines and this is the crux of the problem. The internet is a dangerous place for parents looking for information on vaccines. Just because an adverse effect happens after a vaccination does not mean it is caused by the vaccine.

Sawyer said it is worth the risks of adverse effects to gain the safety of the general public and stop outbreaks. To stop the increase of those not vaccinating, it is imperative that education of the public be monitored.

To prevent the next outbreak there must be strong quarantine protocol to contain and possibly mitigate the spread of deadly viral diseases.

Tim Jacks, pediatrician and blogger spoke to the panel for the support of vaccine initiatives because his two infants are under quarantine because of the measles outbreak. His alignment with pharmaceutical answers and governmental agencies is purposed to further education on a state level on the value of immunizations.

Jacks asserted that the philosophical exemption should be completely eliminated because it is not scientifically sound and it is this exemption “that is causing the problem”.

Jacks highly recommends vaccinations to his clients after he probes them about the fears over inoculations.

Amendments of the philosophical exemption could be a compromised. Healthcare providers should consulted before this document is valid. As the benefit of decreasing non-vaccinated children, philosophical exemptions are only allowed in 29 states.

The government is offering “incentives” to states to coerce parents into not opting for any type of exemption.


Measles, the Anti-Vaccine Generation & the Science Behind It All

The Infant Toddler Center (ITC) in Santa Monica, California has issued a notice that their reopening and present enrollment is contingent on the children coming to their daycare facility prove they have been vaccinated.

Emails have been sent to parents “instructing” them to have their children “tested” so they can remain under the care of the ITC.

This includes having bloodwork confirmed from a licensed physician proving that the child is not currently infected with the measles.

After the California Department of Health (CDH) contacted 14 parents of children who attended ITC concerning measles infections, those children were restricted from the facility “until the 21 day quarantine” ended.

The measles outbreak has been politicized by opportunists wanting to gain an edge on the 2016 presidential elections, while simultaneously being used as a fear-mongering tool by media establishments in both mainstream and alternative news.

Washington State representative June Robinson said vaccine exemptions “just makes it too easy” for parents to opt out and is responding with a bill supported by 11 co-sponsors because “we need to think about the larger community and what we’re doing, not just to ourselves and our own children, but also to all the people in the community.”

Because of this Robinson, Governor Jay Inslee and public health officials from King County have pushed on a last minute piece of legislation that “would do away with Washington’s personal-belief exemption for required school vaccinations, leaving medical or religious exemptions in place.”

The buzzword “vaccine hesitant” has become a politically correct way of dispelling the alleged myth that the Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR) vaccine may be directly tied to the onset of childhood autism spectrum disorder (ASD).

Problems with the MMR vaccine stems from a multitude of studies showing that autism is just one of the many problems facing concerned parents.

To further muddy the issue of the MMR’s questionable safety and effectiveness, last summer the Translational Neurogeneration journal (TNG) retracted a previously published study regarding the findings of Brian Hooker, biochemical engineer with Simpson University, and the connection between MMR vaccines to autism.

Hooker asserted that there was a higher rate of administration of the MMR vaccine to African-American boys who then subsequently developed ASD.

The originating paper was published in 2004 by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) who was integral in suppressing this connection according to one participatory senior scientist with the CDC named William Thompson.

Thompson released a statement revealing the collusion to conceal these facts concerning autism and the MMR vaccine after Hooker released a private conversation on Youtube.

Thompson stated: “I regret that my coauthors and I omitted statistically significant information in our 2004 article published in the journal Pediatrics. The omitted data suggested that African American males who received the MMR vaccine before age 36 months were at increased risk for autism. Decisions were made regarding which findings to report after the data were collected, and I believe that the final study protocol was not followed.”

In 2014, ProQuad released a study on the Measles, Mumps, Rubella and Varcella (MMR) vaccine, showing that toddlers who have the multi-inoculation are at a higher risk for febrile seizures – but parents should not worry because seizures are not dangerous or life threatening.

Febrile seizures are brought on by a sudden elevation of body temperature in young children.

The AAP defines febrile seizures as occurring “in the absence of intracranial infection, metabolic disturbance, or history of afebrile seizures, and are classified as simple or complex.”

It is known to the medical community that febrile seizures are directly linked to “certain vaccinations” after studies showed that the occurrences of febrile seizures raised dramatically after the increased use of seasonal influenza vaccines such as Fluvax Junior and Fluvax; as well as the MMR vaccine.

According to the report, when 1 year old toddlers were given Priorix-Tetra, they were “twice as likely to develop a fever-related seizure as children who got separate MMR and chickenpox shots.”

According to researchers , the MMR vaccine used to “protect” against the disease contains live cultures which cause the vaccinated to come down with the illness. A record 7,500 are injured and more than 75 annually are experience fatal results because of the MMR vaccine.

Several decades before this measles vaccine debate began, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) ignored a groundbreaking study conducted on the MMR vaccine which showed it is directly correlated to the vaccine itself.

Laura Hewitson, Ph.D. and lead researcher, studied macaque monkeys that were given the exact same MMR vaccine as children in 1994 – 1999.

The results entitled “Influence of pediatric vaccines on amydgala growth and opioid ligand binding in rhesus macaque infants: A pilot study” were published in Acta Neurobiological Experiments in 2010. This vaccine has the mercury based preservative Thimerosal.

Hewitson discovered that: “Vaccine-exposed and saline-injected control infants [monkeys] underwent MRI and PET imaging at approximately 4 and 6 months of age, representing two specific timeframes within the vaccination schedule . . . These results suggest that maturational changes in amygdala volume and the binding capacity of [11C]DPN in the amygdala was significantly altered in infant macaques receiving the vaccine schedule.”

The research paper documented that there were significant biological changes and altered behaviors that occurred in the vaccinated monkeys that were identical to children diagnosed with ASD.

The unvaccinated monkey exhibited no changes or symptoms whatsoever.
