GOP Candidates Criticize CDC Vaccine Schedule

8

But, like most people, they seem to be completely unaware of the recently disclosed CDC cover-up of crucial evidence on vaccine safety.

Toward the end of CNN’s Republican presidential candidate debate last week, moderator Jake Tapper tried to set off a firestorm by asking Dr. Ben Carson about vaccination:

Dr. Carson, Donald Trump has publicly and repeatedly linked vaccines, childhood vaccines, to autism, which, as you know, the medical community adamantly disputes. You’re a pediatric neurosurgeon. Should Mr. Trump stop saying this?

The question seems to have been intended to embarrass Trump or Carson or both. Carson’s initial response showed that he was completely unaware that a top CDC scientist had confessed to a massive CDC cover up of data showing a link between the MMR vaccine and a significantly increased risk of autism, particularly for African American boys.

In fact, a re-analysis of the original, raw CDC data found a dramatic increase in the incidence of autism in African-American boys who were vaccinated for MMR in the first two to three years of life. In fact, the incidence of autism was 340% higher.

This damning evidence was, and has continued to be, suppressed in the media. For a long time, the media has unquestioningly toed the government line on the issue of vaccination. Politico’s Sarah Karlin, for instance, wrote this regarding the GOP debate:

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and other medical authorities have said repeatedly that science has demonstrated there is no link between vaccination and autism. Giving children multiple vaccinations at the same has also been proven to be safe, the CDC said.

Of course, the evidence from the CDC cover-up shows this blanket denial of any link to be a patent falsehood.

But even without acknowledging or probably knowing about the CDC cover-up, Carson noted that there are substantial problems with the CDC childhood vaccination schedule:

It is true that we are probably giving way too many [vaccines]in too short a period of time. And a lot of pediatricians now recognize that, and, I think, are cutting down on the number and the proximity in which those are done, and I think that’s appropriate.

Tapper then turned to the other doctor on the stage, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), for his position on this issue. Sen. Paul’s response:

[I’m] all for vaccines. But I’m also for freedom. I’m also a little concerned about how they’re bunched up. My kids had all of their vaccines, and even if the science doesn’t say bunching them up is a problem, I ought to have the right to spread out my vaccines out a little bit at the very least.

It was brave of these two candidates to respond in this way. This is an emotional issue, and the major media is on the side of the vaccine manufacturers, the big drug companies, which also happen to be keeping traditional media afloat with their ad budgets.

Not surprisingly, the attacks rolled in. The Washington Post reported that Dr. Carson drew immediate criticism from doctors and pediatricians across the country.

For example: “No, Ben Carson,” Baltimore pediatrician Scott Krugman wrote. “The answer is ‘yes,’ Donald Trump is wrong. Vaccines don’t cause autism. What are you talking about?”

Perhaps someone should direct those who hold this and similar positions on vaccines to some facts. For instance, though no child died from measles between 2005 and 2014, 108 babies died from the MMR vaccine. And despite the widely touted belief that the link between vaccines and autism has been “debunked,” researchers found eighty-three cases of autism among those compensated by the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program for vaccine-induced brain damage.

Sadly, a reasonable discussion of the facts has long been absent from the debate over vaccination, as the mainstream media repeatedly attempts to slam and defame anyone who dares point to legitimate questions about vaccine safety, or who recommends, as Ben Carson does, a rethinking of the doses and schedule.

    We rarely, if ever, hear the point made that it is virtually impossible to trust the US “regulatory” system and the accomplice scientists when there is so much influence from private pharm and related interests.
    Essentially, they “investigate” themselves and find themselves squeaky clean.
    Even IF some official or scientific conclusions are accurate…still…trust is impossible.

      Just listen to certain journalists, holistic nutritionists and Naturopaths who will tell you the truth. The rest of them or their networks are paid by Big Pharma to keep information from being known.

        Hard to believe how MONEY controls so Many Peoples lives!!! And THAT’S the bottom line for the Drug companies!

    Are you aware of journalist Sharyl Atkisson’s investigation into this subject? Turns out there are plenty of studies that contradict the corporate-government’s propaganda.

  • Eileen Philips

    Want to learn the truth about the connection between childhood vaccines and the exponential rise in autism??? Do a Google search for a documentary called “Bought” and you will be astounded at the connection and the coverup.

    None of the GOP candidates mentioned William Thompson who was a whistleblower (recently). He came out saying that the MMR vaccine does cause autism and that the vax companies were hiding the evidence. Rep Bill Posey is trying to bring this matter to the floor of Congress.

    Look up what is the leading cause of Polio and Polio paralysis. You will find more information for your anti-vaccine position.

    Just more proof that the media tells us what they want us to know. It’s totally controlled by the political big pharma machine. I doubt if they will ever come clean on anything. Big Pharma needs to be totally transparent in order to be regulated but with all their money they have already bought the regulators so where does that leave us? I feel we have already lost the battle and the big boys have won. Our freedom is a thing of the past but no one realizes it yet.
