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
(The above video clips are included in the Tuesday afternoon session)
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."
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.”
From Restore Ye to Its Owners: on the immorality of receiving vaccines derived from abortion

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.”
by Barbara Loe Fisher, Co-Founder & President, NVIC
"How well do you know the lucrative global vaccine market and how private physicians are being enlisted by government to abandon the precautionary and informed consent principles so they can become agents of the state and enforce one-size-fits-all vaccine laws?
In this eye-opening illustrated video and referenced written commentary, NVIC co-founder and president Barbara Loe Fisher provides analysis and perspective about why the medical exemption to vaccination has become a political football and is disappearing from state public health laws. She describes the lucrative global vaccine market and how private physicians are being enlisted by government to abandon the precautionary and informed consent principles so they can become agents of the state and enforce one-size-fits-all vaccine laws. She reviews the history of the CDC's Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) and efforts by the forced vaccination lobby to turn ACIP vaccine use recommendations into state vaccine laws that legally prohibit doctors from exercising professional judgment and conscience when granting a child a medical vaccine exemption."
When it was time for my first child's measles vaccine (1979), our pediatrician was emphatic when he told me the combined MMR was not safe. It made sense to me, when he stated that since a child would not get the three viruses at the same time, the vaccines should not be given at the same time. Instead, he administered the three vaccines individually a few months apart. Unfortunately, the belief at the time and his assurance that one vaccine would produce lifelong immunity like the natural measles virus that I had as a child, proved not to be true. Although I didn't realize it at the time, that pediatrician planted the seed in me which, almost ten years later when I was expecting my third child, launched me into a more thorough investigation of vaccine safety and efficacy and ultimately led me to become an advocate for vaccine risk awareness and vaccine choice.
In the video below, Dr. Andrew Wakefield, who has been studying the measles virus since 1990, explains that primary, secondary and tertiary failure of the MMR vaccine -- and not the unvaccinated -- could very well be responsible for measles outbreaks. Dr. Wakefield's warnings are very much in keeping with the several studies cited in the PIC documents below and in "The Future of Measles in Highly Immunized Populations A Modeling Approach" published in 1984.
Dr. Wakefield's segment begins at approximately minute 32.
For more detailed information on the measles virus and MMR vaccine failure, listen to Dr. Wakefield's 2019 Autism One presentation, "Man, Measles, and Make-believe"; and please read the just published "The Sixth Extinction: Vaccine Immunity and Measles Mutants in a Virgin Soil" by Andrew J. Wakefield, M.B.
In the following brief video, Dr. Theresa Deisher talks about human aborted fetal contaminants and retroviruses in the Rubella, MMR and Chickenpox vaccines and their association with several human diseases including Multiple Sclerosis, Schizophrenia, ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease) and HIV associated dementia.
“Anyone who says that these contaminants in a vaccine would not do anything, either knows nothing about immunology or vaccinology; or they’re not telling the truth. If I talk to someone in the field of small fragment homologous recombination and I say “how much human fetal DNA fragments left in a vaccine do you think would be safe?” They say, ‘zero’.”
After starting video, be sure to click "unmute" icon at bottom right to activate sound.
“…and mutated stem cells could cause problems for us for life. The dangers of retroviral fragments as well as the residual human fetal DNA are an unstudied risk to vaccine recipients. No study has ever been done to look at the safety of these contaminants. No cytokines have ever been measured;
and no antibodies have ever been measured.”
In the June 20, 2019 edition of The HighWire, beginning at approximately point 16, Del Bigtree talks with Dr. Deisher of Sound Choice Pharmaceutical Institute, in more detail, about aborted fetal cell DNA fragments in vaccines. Watch below.
On July 11, 2019, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) published a feature article, entitled, "Fetal Cells and Vaccines -- Common Questions Answered." The article contained several false statements; including that the final vaccines are pure and "... will not introduce unnecessary components that could trigger immune responses or affect us in other ways." They did not reference any safety study for that statement. Click here to read Sound Choice Pharmaceuticals' July 21, 2019 rebuttal -- complete with references -- to the CHOP article.
Stanley Plotkin, MD, aka "The Godfather of Vaccines, is considered the world's leading authority on vaccines.
Originally published in 1988 and now in it's 7th edition, his book "Plotkin's Vaccines" is the standard textbook for vaccines; and has been called "the bible for vaccinologists" by pro vaccine advocate, Bill Gates. Following an introduction at the February 2017 meeting of the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services National Vaccine Advisory Committee, Dr. Plotkin commented, "I hope you all have indeed have read the book, and I hope it's more accurate than the Bible." Listen to Dr. Plotkin make that statement here.
Dr. Plotkin is an atheist who has little tolerance for religious beliefs. He stands by his statement, “Vaccination is always under attack by religious zealots who believe that the will of God includes death and disease.”
The first video below, is a brief excerpt from a nine-hour deposition, in which Dr. Plotkin while under oath, details the use of aborted babies in vaccines. If you have read J. B. Handley's, "How To End the Autism Epidemic" you will be aware of this deposition conducted by attorney, Aaron Siri. In the second video (beginning at 0:29:54) from the January 17th episode of The HighWire, you'll hear several pro vaccine advocates praise Dr. Plotkin and get a sense of the "god-like" influence that Dr. Plotkin has over them. Perhaps the most revealing and disturbing comment about Dr Plotkin comes from Dr. Paul Offit who states, "He trained a generation just a generation of scientists, including myself, to think like he thinks."
