I think we could all write Candidate Trump and lay our vote on the line. Inform him to learn more about the issue, so that when vaccine zealots rear-up there fascist heads he can smack them down. That would be HUGE! Democratic legislators are pathetic on this issue, period. Conservatives have the potential to be much better. I agree with Jenny. If conservative republicans were real savvy on this they could trash democrats and that would be poetic justice. JB Hadley will get my vote if there is no one else in the general election.
"......It can take a bloody long time for the truth to emerge" As far as universal forces go like gravity, [this]truth has to achieve escape velocity from the entities who are not served by the truth and do not want to be held accountable. As other forces come into play to suppress this truth from reaching escape velocity, the likely hood of a super-nova event becomes possible if not probable. There is some math wiz out there who could write the equation which could be as simple as E=mc2 where m(mass)is the autism epidemic numbers and c is cumulative destroyed lives in years.
When I read this,"These include mothers’ broader autism phenotype characteristics and depressive symptoms, both of which are elevated in parents of children with ASD......", it sounded like they were looking to see if there was a refrigerator in the room,opposed to a loving communicating, mother responding to all the sounds one hears from 9-month old infants. There should be a study on the absence of listening skills of PhDs, MDs and other autism researchers and policy makers who have to be repeatedly told what is breaking our children. That pathology would merit a study or lobotomy which ever was appropriate.
Birgit, you wrote, "The way the press is acting is shameful." I don't think you can shame an industry which lacks integrity. Willingham makes the case perfectly. Shame doesn't work when a person or an enterprise has no code of ethics or moral compass. If Willingham were writing for the Nazis or Fascists, shame is of no consequence or relevance. Shame only matters when you have some humanity or conscience. Willingham has neither.
If the forces which dominate every aspect of our lives today were this pronounced 200 years ago, Paul Revere would not be allowed to ride.
“His sex life, his love life, consists of a series of chance encounters at the clubs and bars he inhabits, and even the streets of the city – the quick one night stand." I had to chuckle a bit;that pretty much describes quite a few hetero males at college.

Bob, I've noticed that pitch forks seem to be a rather hot item these days. Probably a good time to invest in companies making pitch forks.
Bill suggested "a grand bargain". One might think that the 1986 Vaccine Act was in fact an attempt at a grand bargain. So what does Donna Shalala, Sectretary of Health under Clinton do in 1995, eliminate seizures from the table of injuries. Seizures after vaccination, nope, not vaccine related. There is no "grand bargain" with the devil. There is no grand bargain with a government-industry that functions on fraud, deception, corruption and criminal behavior. How can you have a grand bargain with a cesspool generating holocaust? A spade is a spade is a spade.
There is a principle in advertising, that you emphasize what you are not.
Regina--"What I don't understand is some kids can take certain vaccinations and others almost die from it or have other severe repercussions." Genetics is a short, simple answer. The same reason some can smoke cigarettes and live longer and others die sooner. Genetics. Massive amounts of mercury injected into generations of children and some appear unscathed and others broken, disabled, damaged.....genetics. We are all snowflakes but vaccinations treat us as if we are all the same. One-size-does-not-fit-all...genetics. Also see this:
In addition to what Cynthia Cournoyer's comment, "they" would really like to reduce the unvaccinated population so that those healthy people out there won't exist anymore.
They (and you know who they is) would extol a stinking pile of horseshit if it was pro-vaccine.
Thank you Dr. Wakefield. You are the model and posses exactly what is lacking in science, journalism and government --integrity, courage and the conviction to stand up for what is right and just. As a secondary note, Elizabeth Steiner-Hayward, epitomizes anti-science, hubris and arrogance. She will be but speck of dust in history and will be remembered as a dishonest, hypocritical coward.
Forget Feinstein, she's got her head so far up her ass, that facts don't matter.
I can no longer in good conscience say the pledge of allegiance. That America is no longer about truth, justice, freedom, liberty, and equality. My allegiance is to the principles of honesty and integrity. Isn't this what they really want, "I pledge allegiance to the vaccinations of the United States of America...."
I don't know where such human cruelty comes from. Perhaps there is a previously unrecognized syndrome appropriately named "Kimmel Cruelty" named for a pathology which stems from some mental defect which allows some people to entertain, yet the inability to entertain the grief of others. Yes, a new diagnostic condition for the DSM-V. "Kimmel Cruelty" can be associated in early stages as cruelty and mistreatment of animals, bullying, demeaning, lack of empathy, and nighttime drooling especially when disparaging others who are less fortunate.
does anyone know whether any of the Italian court documents have been translated into English?
Bob Moffit, what about doctors in the late 40's and 50's telling mothers that breast feeding is "so third worldish" and that formula is superior to breast milk. And on top of that, telling mothers that were breast feeding, not to breast feed their children after the oral polio vaccine, because breast milk has enzymes which can neutralize the polio virus by up to 90%.

Teresa, you and so many parents at AoA deserve the "Courage in Life" award. I have learned so much from your writing and experience. AoA is the only place I go anymore that matters. I know I have a heart because its breaking. I think the tin man said that.
Everyone in Washington in government, in the corporate media, wherever, is afraid of these questions which why they go to great lengths to not ask them. They are more afraid of asking the questions than they are of hearing sworn-under-oath answers. As has been said elsewhere "if you don't ask the right questions, the answers are irrelevant".
The Shame of US Journalism. This is a essay on the Bill Moyer's website regarding the current media frenzy over NBC'c Brian Williams helicopter story Its an article about the Shame of US Journalism. Change the wording appropriately to vaccinations etc and the cheerleading for launching war on the truth about vaccinations. Recall that Bill Moyer's himself went into denial when vaccinations were the topic of one of his shows a few years ago. THE SHAME OF US JOURNALISM............... Given that Williams works for NBC, his participation in the construction of a piece of fiction during the US invasion and occupation of Iraq is apt. US network news, together with outlets such as CNN, aggressively cheer-led an invasion predicated on a massive falsehood: the Iraqi possession of WMD. What is jarring, however, is the fact that Williams’ sad attempt to inject himself into the fabric of the violence is getting more ink and airplay than the non-existence of WMD did back in the early-to-mid 2000s: a lie that provided the justification for a military action that has taken the lives of hundreds of thousands of Iraqi civilians. From embedded journalists to ultra-militaristic news logos and music, US television news media were more than willing to throw gas on the invasion fire. “Experts” in the studio were invariably ex-generals looking to pad their pensions, while anti-war activists (who spoke for sizable portions of the US and UK populations back in 2003) were avoided like the plague. After all, what news organization wants to be tarred with the “peace” brush when flag-waiving jingoism sells so incredibly well? The one-sidedness of coverage, particularly in the US, bordered on the morally criminal. Despite some limited soul-searching by journalists a decade after 9/11 and the invasion of Iraq about the abject failure of the US news to engage, in a truly critical fashion, with the falsehoods peddled by the Bush administration, the current focus on an inane untruth told by one celebrity news anchor has overshadowed the bigger picture about the US media and Iraq. And I don’t think that’s a coincidence.
One of the early investigations done on the DPT and the horrific reactions which accompanied its use, was actually aired on TV. Don't remember the station, but around 1996(?) It was revealed that the FDA through VAERS could "give you" the numerator, but "could not", "would not" give you the denominator. The reason being that the size of the lot (denominator) was proprietary information owned by the drug companies. A numerator without the denominator and just WHO is anti-science? And they wonder why we are so skeptical.
Kristina: I think Dan and all those who contribute to Age of Autism have already saved thousands of children from harm.
The fundamental truth regarding vaccinations--One size does not fit all. Some kids appear to handle thimerasol and others clearly do not. That point we certainly understand. Lopez maybe would get it with a slow, careful explanation of the science. However, Anderson Cooper just needs more vaccinations, no antigens, just the weight adjusted doses of thimerasol and then he might begin to see the light. Throw in some aluminum too and now we have a real guinea pig, kind of like our children. Looks like vaccination science and policy to me.
