I first learned of Nick Gauthier's story in September 2019. Nick, a PhD level Audiologist, former fire fighter and father of three, had recently moved his family from Michigan to Texas to take a position at Fort Hood. On August 19th, within hours of receiving a Tdap vaccine required for employment, Nick's vaccine injury story began and life, as Nick and his wife Andrea knew it, changed dramatically.
I documented Nick and Andrea's FB updates on the VCPC website so that their story could be shared beyond Facebook. On January 30th, Nick's story was included in Episode #148 of The HighWire. Watch Nick's "Ex-Vax Files" segment below as well as the full interview with Nick and a segment with Andrea in the second video. Since the segment aired, there have been setbacks and last night, February 8, 2020, Nick was hospitalized in respiratory distress. Please keep Nick, Andrea and their family in your thoughts and prayers and check here for updates on Nick's condition.
“If there’s one thing for people to know from this is that it’s not just kids that get hurt. It can be literally anyone. I was the healthiest of my friends, of my family; and there’s no indicators that it’s going to be you.”

Despite the fact that Nick has been unable to work and may lose his position at Fort Hood, as you'll hear in the video, Nick has not yet been able to collect Workman's Compensation. If you are able to help financially, click here to donate to "Nick's Medical Fundraiser."
“I took this job down here to give my family a better life. I regret it at this point because it’s changed everything for me. I lost everything I love. There’s a chance I lost my career. I would give anything to go back to that day and just not get that shot."
Nick's story begins at 1:06:34, of HighWire Episode #148.
Nick talks with host Del Bigtree at 1:12:50.
What Nick would like others to know . . .
“Doctors don’t know about vaccines. They know the theory but they don’t know the side effects. They don’t know the ingredients. Heck, a lot of them don’t even know what VAERS is, which is terrifying. So educate yourself because they’re not educating themselves; so that you can make a choice of what goes into your body; what goes into your family’s body; because there are real repercussions if you do have a reaction and no one will ever know who’s going to have a reaction to the vaccine.”
Political Economist Toby Rogers decided to research autism after a friend's son was diagnosed as being on the spectrum. He was troubled by how little the CDC knew about the rise of the autism epidemic. As his research continued, he became curious about the cost estimates of autism. What initially was to be an afternoon of research into the cause of autism, turned into weeks of research that ultimately resulted in Dr. Rogers changing the focus of his doctoral thesis. He spent the next four years studying everything that's ever been written on the science of autism and every vaccine safety study. He was stunned by what he found. His research culminated in a 407 page doctoral thesis (with 125 pages of references) entitled, "The Political Economy of Autism."
I've included several of Dr. Rogers statements in this post, but I urge you to meet Toby Rogers, PhD in the HighWire episode #146 video below beginning at the 52:28 mark. Listen to his powerful and alarming message and please share.
"I was looking to exonerate the CDC, to exonerate vaccines, I didn’t want to take on this topic. I mean none of us do…this topic chooses us..."
"All I wanted to do was read the evidence for myself...The motto of the Royal Society in England, the oldest scientific society in the world is...'Take nobody’s word for it…go and do the work for yourself.' ...That was my goal...So I set out to do the work for myself. I read the evidence for myself and what the CDC was saying did not check out…It's bewildering, you feel like you're losing your mind. It can't be possible that the most important public health agency in the country, if not in the world, is telling a story that doesn't match the data on the page...I kicked the tires every different way to try to prove myself wrong for six weeks on end and twelve hours a day pouring over the material on the page, the actual scientific evidence about what's happening, and it just didn't check out. What the CDC was saying simply didn’t check out..."
Watch video below.The segment with Dr. Rogers begins at approximately 52:28.
“When I went into this research, I was a true believer in vaccines; but after four years of work, the truth of the matter is the vaccines that are on the market today are terrible; and the reality is that the pharmaceutical industry is engaging in smoke and mirrors and junk science. They haven’t been tested for safety. We’re expected to accept them on faith. That’s not science. It’s marketing propaganda.”
"In 2015, autism cost the United States $268 billion dollars, billion with a "B" and they project that if autism continues at its current rate, that autism will cost the United States one trillion dollars by 2025...so within six years, autism is gonna cost the United States more than the U.S. Defense Department budget... and yet government isn't talking about it. Most politicians don't talk about it and they continue to be engaged in denial. "
"...Nobody wants to take this topic on because everybody knows that there’s all sorts of pushback that’s going to come from the pharmaceutical industry, from the chemical industry, from big energy companies..."
"Families, parents need to evaluate the evidence for themselves. Parents are the last line of defense for kids…don’t defer and contract out your decision-making in your brain to some authority, because we have fairly good evidence that the regulatory agencies that are supposed to be protecting us are captured; the problem here is regulatory capture. So the regulatory agencies that are supposed to be protecting us are actually protecting the pharmaceutical industry, big chemical companies; power plants, that sort of thing…"
The U.S. has two choices. We can enter a Pharma dark ages or we can engage in autism prevention. Those are the only two choices on the table. The levels of suffering out there are unbelievable and we know how to stop this epidemic. We have a moral responsibility as a society to stop this epidemic and if we don’t, we’re looking at the collapse of the United States of America.”

Tuning in to The HighWire each week is a good way to stay current on vaccine risk awareness issues. In Episode 145 which aired January 9, 2020, Del Bigtree shared several brief video clips from the 2019 World Health Organization (WHO) Global Vaccine Safety Summit, which took place December 2-3 in Geneva, Switzerland. Watch the clips from the gathering of "vaccine safety stakeholders" below. From what I could tell from these clips and additional coverage on the WHO website, the most important stakeholders of all -- parents who have lost a child to vaccines; victims and families living with vaccine injury; and those being mandated to vaccinate for education, work and other benefits -- were missing from the gathering.
Listen as "experts" discuss lack of vaccine safety science; problems with vaccine adjuvants; herd immunity; growth of the vaccine risk awareness movement; increasing number of healthcare professionals questioning vaccine safety; and more. It's a somewhat different message than the usual "vaccines are safe and effective" rhetoric. Share this information with others, and be a part of the movement to end vaccine ignorance.
W.H.O Chief Scientist Caught Lying to the Public
Dr. Soumya Swaminathan, Chief Scientist at the W.H.O., addresses the world in a promotional video where she ensures the robust existence of effective vaccine safety systems and the overall safety of vaccines. Five days later, here is her diametrically different opinion behind closed doors at the Global Vaccine Safety Summit on Dec. 3rd, 2019.
A nine minute compilation of the above videos is available here.
Full video coverage of the 2019 WHO Global Vaccine Safety Summit, is available on the WHO website. Cllick here to view

Segment on the 2019 Global Health Summit begins at approximately
the 35 minute mark.
Dr. V. A. Shiva Ayyadurai who, at the age of 14 invented email and went on to earn four degrees from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) including a PhD in Biological Engineering, joined the vaccine risk awareness movement several months ago to help educate legislators, physicians, healthcare professionals and the general public on science based vaccine facts, and the immune system. In addition to being brilliant, Dr. Shiva has a gift for explaining complex information in a clear, concise way.
In the 22 minute video below, Dr. Shiva explains the modern immune system, and shares how the theory of the immune system still being taught to physicians and healthcare professionals is about 100 years old. He further explains how this outdated and inaccurate science has resulted in vaccines that cause confusion within the body and autoimmune health challenges. Watch, listen, learn and share!
Thank you Dr. Shiva!
I had the opportunity to meet and chat with Dr. Shiva at the recent Vaccine Injury Epidemic Event (VIE) in Washington DC and thank him personally for his campaign to educate an army of "citizen scientists."
Michael Simms, from Australia, is the father of a vaccine injured son;
and a passionate vaccine risk awareness advocate.
Thank you Michael for this powerful message.
"Autism is easy", a comment that I have heard recently... Easy?? Really??
by Michael Simms
Tell me what is easy about not being able to communicate with your child? Waiting for him to say a few words so you can hear his voice, waiting for him to be able to have a conversation with you. It is all a waiting game, the longest game I have EVER played.
Tell me what is easy about your ten year old being so stressed they cry and cry for hours? He works himself into such a tizzy that you cannot touch him or cuddle him, when you know that is exactly what he needs.
Tell me what is easy about watching your child lash out because you don't understand what they want or need?
Tell me what is easy about seeing your child bang things on their head or the walls, out of pure and utter frustration, and you still cannot figure out why?
Tell me what is easy about seeing your child being isolated because they have a neurological condition? Being labelled the "bold child" because they have a meltdown in public. Or being labelled "weird" because they flap their hands and hum when they are excited.
Tell me what is easy about not knowing what the future will bring? Waking up in the morning you do not know what is facing you, and the fear of looking to the future eats you up inside, so you block it out instead.
Tell me what is easy about the loneliness of being a parent to a child with autism? "Friends" walk away, people stare at you, the judgers, the comments people pass. People pull their children away from him in playgrounds because he is "different" and god forbid they might "catch it".
Tell me what is easy about the constant worry you have. The fear of leaving them out of your sight because they cannot tell you if something happens. The worry when they cannot tell you if they feel sick or hurt them self. The heartbreak you feel on a daily basis because their life is not meant to be this hard.
There is NOTHING easy about Autism.
There is nothing great, nothing rosy in the garden.
It is hard, and it does not matter if you are in your twenties or in your forties, it is HARD.
It is the biggest challenge I have come across in my life, and there are some days where you just want to lock yourself in a room and hide. There are some days where someone just has to look at me and I cry. There are some days where you can take on the world and other days where you want to hide from every other human being.
This does not mean that I love my little boy any less, I worship the ground he walks on.
It does not mean that I don't have goals and dreams for him, because I do. I have the biggest dreams in the world for him, and I will help him to achieve everything he wants to do.
It does not mean that my little boy is “weird" or "bold" he is simply wired differently.
He is AMAZING, but everyday life is harder for him.
So yes, looking from the outside Autism might look "easy", but before you make a quick judgement, before you decide you could do our job with your eyes closed, and before you question why sometimes we cry at the blink of a hat, put yourself in our shoes for the day. Put yourself in the shoes of a parent to a child with Autism, and come back to me. Come back to me and tell me how it really is.

As I mentioned in my last post, the speakers at the 2019 V.I.E. (Vaccine Injury Epidemic) Event in Washington, DC were excellent. (Scroll down for a list and video of all the speakers.) In the video immediately below, pediatrician Dr. Bob Sears gives a powerful and emotional explanation of why doctors deny vaccine injury. Please watch, hear and share.
“I’m here today to talk about one of the worst evils of our time. The denial of vaccine injury; the threat of mandatory vaccination; and a new form of discrimination — government mandated, industry sponsored and media supported discrimination. Vaccine injured children are the most invisible group of disabled children in history. It’s as if none of your children who are here today exist.
They don’t exist!”
“It’s time to normalize vaccine injury; to make it something that is ok to talk about…It is time for the world to see that while vaccines may save some people; they also cause severe harm to tens of thousands right here in America every single year.”

2019 V.I.E Event, National Mall, Washington, DC
Photo by Kari Bundy
On Thursday November 14th, I attended the 2019 Vaccine Injury Epidemic (V.I.E.) Event on the National Mall in Washington DC. About 3000 of us gathered to raise awareness of vaccine injury and to remember the victims and families who live with vaccine injury and those who did not survive their vaccine injury. It was a powerful event with excellent speakers including doctors, scientists, lawmakers, attorneys, advocates, parents of vaccine injured and deceased children and members of the clergy, one of whom was Fr. Michael Copenhagen, a Catholic priest from Rochester, New York. I had recently read Restore Ye to Its Owners: on the immorality of receiving vaccines derived from abortion by Fr. Copenhagen; so I was thrilled when I heard him introduced. Listen below and please share the video and above document with others, including and especially with clergy and members of your church; and with those who believe there is no justification for a religious exemption to vaccines.
"There are many here who make compelling scientific and personal cases, I'm here to make a religious and moral case for Catholics and for all to hear."
“Most people are misinformed about actual church teaching on the issue of immorally produced fetal cell lines; those obtained through the taking of innocent human life and the stolen DNA present in many mandated vaccines…The result is that Catholics are unrepresented in a moral fight that is ours by right and by duty. Everywhere I see faithful Catholics numbingly going against the instincts of conscience because they are convinced that the Church has given an unconditional green light to the use of these cell lines. Let’s set the record straight...”

Also read the Children of God for Life document, "Aborted Fetal Material Used in Vaccines and Medicines", which answers the question "How many abortions were involved in vaccines?" This document gives the facts – the direct link to the abortions involved, the cell lines created and footnote hyperlinks directly to the science documents describing their work.
“No one is bound to participate in one sin in order to avoid another. It is never permissible to do evil for a good purpose.”

One year ago today, Haleigh Jenna Golden, a 20 year old senior at the University of Cincinnati College of Arts and Sciences, tragically passed away as a result of a vaccine related seizure.
Below is a compilation of posts shared by Haleigh's mother, Rishanne Golden over the last several months...
Haleigh Jenna Golden
July 29, 1998 - November 6, 2018
"We lost our precious and vibrant daughter to a pediatrician recommended vaccine in preparation for college. All of our lives, we unfortunately blindly trusted what we have been told and thought we were protecting our children. Little did we know these neurotoxic vaccines have been continually harming our girls."
"Tragically, our gorgeous 18 year old began having seizures after receiving the meningitis vaccination and after learning what happened while working in functional/naturopathic medicine, we began a protocol to slowly detox our beautiful Bearcat! Haleigh so wanted to live the life she deserved and she walked with such courage and positivity and choose to utilize a great number of support tools in order to recognize healing, all while trying to enjoy her life as a college student."
"Making progress, we unexpectedly and tragically lost our sweet girl November 6, 2018. Both of our girls are the absolute light in our life, and the very beats in our hearts, and we are all beyond devastated with the loss of our child and only sister. Knowing her injury and passing was absolutely senseless, completely preventable and occurred only because of the corruption, greed and fraud behind this evil agenda deeply adds to our agonizing pain."
"Our daughter was an amazing young lady! She was kind, generous, funny and so dedicated to learning. Haleigh was a double major/double minor graduating in 3 years from the University of Cincinnati and she loved being a UC student! She so enjoyed her collegiate life and planned to create some type of outreach following graduation. She even spoke of someday writing a book that would be geared toward young teens so to provide a scope of thought and dialogue with parents, asking each to properly grasp what was truly being injected into their bodies."
"We always believed we would be sharing Haleigh's healing success story and doing outreach together. Since that is no longer possible, our family has chosen to be our lively girls voice and we stand to share her truth. Attempting to honor Haleigh's life, and love her from this world, a website has been created and is managed by her older sister."
A little over two years ago, I shared a post entitled, "I called myself a vaccine Nazi..." which featured a video interview with James Neuenschwander, MD speaking out about vaccines. Click here to read that post and listen to that interview.
This past week, "Dr. Nue", who has been in practice for over 30 years and is double Board Certified in Emergency and Integrative Medicine, gave a powerful, no nonsense, reprimand to the members of ACIP (Advisory Committee for Immunization Practices) at their October meeting at CDC Headquarters in Atlanta, GA. He then talked with The HighWire's Del Bigtree.
Listen to Dr. Neuenschwander's ACIP comment and HighWire interview below.
James Neuenschwander MD addresses the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices with his severely critical public comment detailing how ACIP’s policies are hurting our children and families.
Thank you Dr. Neuenschwander. We need more physicians like you, who have the humility and integrity to admit that the very little they were taught about vaccines in medical school was wrong; and the courage to speak out to protect children and families from further harm.
“…You are truly brainwashed when you go through medical school. You’re chronically sleep deprived. You’re fed the same lines over and over again. You’re trained through repetition. You’re not trained to question anything. I always say there’s a huge difference between a medical education and a law education. They teach you law by asking you questions. They say, what do you think about, Smith vs. the state of Columbia or something; and whatever your answer is they’re then going to ask you about an alternative position. It doesn’t happen that way in medicine. You go to the mountaintop, the Guru bestows the knowledge upon you and your job is to merely regurgitate that knowledge while you’re practicing medicine. You never question what you’re doing until you realize what you’re doing doesn’t work and maybe there’s better answers out there. So these folks, I don’t think any of them are evil. I think they are all great people and they have devoted their lives to preventing infectious disease. That’s why they’re there. Alright, but because they’re so focused in on whether two DTaPs is better than a DTaP and two DTaPs is better than a DT and three DTaPs or whatever the study is, they completely forget about health. I mean this is all about how do we improve the health of our children, of our adults, that’s really what we should be about and they’re not even looking at that…We are so trained to look at the minutiae that we ignore the big picture. The vaccine works, we don’t have measles. We don’t have measles, who cares about autism? Who cares about auto-immunity?
We don’t have measles.”
“We need people that are thinking independently and that’s being snuffed out; and a lot of us believe that most of the kids that are descending into autism, these would have been the future thought leaders.”
Michael Simms, from Australia, is the father of a vaccine injured son.
Thank you, Michael for "just asking" and for permission to share your simple and powerful message. Love and prayers for you and your little boy.
Why when I asked for the vaccine insert was I given a promotional flier?
Why when I noticed immediate changes in my son after vaccinations did multiple doctors tell me nothing is wrong with him and he may be deaf?
Why are vaccine injuries never on the news but every single case of measles is?
Why are other countries cutting back their vaccines while we are increasing ours?
Why are doctors not allowed to speak against vaccines?
Why does nobody know where Autism comes from, and why is it increasing so much?
