Timeline of events in the William Thompson #CDCwhistleblower Scandal
Written by The Canary Party   
Thursday, 01 October 2015 15:10

Senior vaccine safety reseach scientist Dr. William Thompson confesses that he and his reserach team at CDC have been hiding vaccine autism links from the public.

8/8/14 – Dr. Brian Hooker publishes an article in the journal Translational Neurodegeneration entitled Measles-mumps-rubella vaccination timing and autism among young African American boys: a reanalysis of CDC data.  The paper took a second look at the data used in the 2002 CDC MMR/autism study Age at first measles-mumps-rubella vaccination in children with autism and school-matched control subjects: a population-based study in metropolitan Atlanta,and concludesthat there is a significant association between giving the MMR vaccine to black males under the age of 3 and the development of autism. This association was not reported in the published CDC study.

8/18/14 – A video is released on the Internet with audio purported, and later confirmed to be, discussions between Dr. Brian Hooker and CDC senior research scientist Dr. William Thompson, one of the original MMR paper's authors. The video claims that Thompson told Hooker in phone conversations that the research team found the association between vaccines and autism, and then changed the parameters of the study to get rid of the association, so they would not have to report it to the public. In the audio Thompson expresses great shame and remorse for “lying” and for going along with what the “higher-ups wanted.”

The autism and vaccine injury communities were outraged at the disclosure, and discussions on the matter began to flood the blogosphere and appear on social media under #CDCwhistleblower. More quotes by Thompson are released on the Internet.

A sample of the Thompson quotes:

"Oh my God, I did not believe that we did what we did, but we did. It’s all there… This is the lowest point in my career, that I went along with that paper. I have great shame now when I meet families of kids with autism, because I have been part of the problem."

"We’ve missed ten years of research because the CDC is so paralyzed right now by anything related to autism. They’re not doing what they should be doing because they’re afraid to look for things that might be associated.”

8/25/14 – CDC releases a statement on their web site confirming that the study parameters were changed and that there were two sets of children studied. One was all the children initially recruited for the study; the other was a subset of children who had Georgia birth certificates. The statement also confirmed that a higher association was found between MMR and autism in children given the vaccine before the age of 36 months.

8/27/14 – Dr. William Thompson
releases a statement through his whistleblower attorneys confirming the claims made about him and about the paper. He expresses regret that he and his colleagues omitted statistically significant data on the vaccine autism link, he confirms that it was he on the audio speaking to Dr. Hooker on the phone, and he states that he is providing information to Congressman Bill Posey and will continue to cooperate with Congress on the matter.

8/27/14 – The journal
Translational Neurodegeneration removes the Hooker article from its website with the following statement: “This article has been removed from the public domain pending further investigation because the journal and publisher believe that its continued availability could cause public harm. Definitive editorial action will be taken once our investigation is complete.” The journal then fell under criticism from members of the public who claimed that Translational Neurodegeneration did not follow its own research review policies in removing the article.

8/29/14 – More audio of Thompson is released
in a video in which he discusses the firm belief inside the CDC that mercury in vaccines can cause tics, and he emphatically states that thimerosal should never be given to pregnant women, as is currently done. Since tics are four times more common in children with autism, Thompson proceeds to state, “There is biologic plausibility right now to say that thimerosal causes autism-like features.”

8/28/14 – Reporter Sharyl Attkisson investigates the story and reports, “A spokesman for the journal Pediatrics today said the publication stands by the study despite the news.“ “There’s a standard process that journals follow when an article is questioned,” said the spokesman. “Those discussions took place between the editors of Pediatrics and the authors of this study, and the editors concluded the research was appropriately conducted.” However, Thompson, one of the study authors, confirmed that he was never contacted by the editors of Pediatrics. Pediatrics is published by the American Academy of Pediatrics, which accepts vaccine industry funding.

Further, Attkisson reports, “The Director of the CDC Immunization Safety Office, Dr. Frank DeStefano, is a co-author of the now-questioned study which has been widely-cited to dispel an MMR-autism link. DeStefano is frequently quoted as an expert who debunks vaccine-autism ties.

“‘I stand by the research and the conclusions in our 2004 paper, and I’ll reiterate that the evidence, thus far, the weight of the evidence, is against a causal association between vaccines and autism,‘ DeStefano told me in a telephone interview this week.“

8/29/14 – Sharyl Attkisson issues a
second report on the story, this time reporting, “In a statement, Thompson implies his CDC employer and colleagues have not always been forthright with the public about vaccine safety issues. But DeStefano argues their final analysis produced more valid results.”

Attkisson also includes the complete audio with her interview with DeStefano, in which he states “at 36 months, an exposure around that time period is just not biologically plausible to have a causal association with autism.” DeStefano provides no basis for this assertion.

09/2/14 – Attkisson issues a
third report, highlighting a seeming reversal from DeStefano “biologically implausible” stance and an admission that they are not looking for cases where vaccines can or have caused autism: A coauthor of the questioned study is Dr. Frank DeStefano, Director of the CDC Immunization Safety Office. In a telephone interview last week, DeStefano defended the study and reiterated the commonly accepted position that there’s no “causal” link between vaccines and autism.

But he acknowledged the prospect that vaccines might rarely trigger autism.

I guess, that, that is a possibility,” said DeStefano. “It’s hard to predict who those children might be, but certainly, individual cases can be studied to look at those possibilities.”

DeStefano is the head of the CDC Immunization Safety Office. It was his job to look for cases of vaccine-induced autism, most especially in light of both the rising numbers of children with autism and the vast number of parental reports nationwide of regression into autism following vaccination. Either he didn't look for those cases, or he did, and he chose not to report his findings. Neither is acceptable.

9/8/14 - Ben Swann reports that Congressman Posey's office confirmed that Thompson has turned over a "very large number" of documents.

9/9/14 - The Orlando Sentinel confirms that Congressman Posey has begun an investigation into the #CDCwhistleblower claims. 

9/10/14 – Attkisson's
fourth installment reports that Pediatrics issued a statement standing by the DeStefano study, apparently not following its own ethical guidelines, as it didn't contact Thompson, only the authors accused of malfeasance.

9/17/14 - Autism Media Channel releases
more audio from the Thompson phone calls in which Thompson says that the CDC is 10 years behind on autism, because it is paralyzed by what it might find if proper investigation was undertaken. He calls for Congressional hearings and an independent investigation of the CDC's actions. The video closes with Thompson saying, "I have a boss who is asking me to lie... I have basically stopped lying."

10/9/14 – Autism Media Channel releases another video alleging further hiding of MMR/autism data, reporting that Thompson and his team found a link between MMR and what they described as, “Isolated” autism. It defined the phenomenon as children with autism who did not have any co-morbid developmental disorders including Cerebral Palsy, Mental Retardation (IQ less than 70), Visual Impairment, Hearing Impairment, Epilepsy or Birth Defects. The video states that, “According to Thompson, these were autistic children with no other obvious explanation for their developmental disorder. A subset that may have been injured in their second year of life.” The video reports that CDC found that for this subset of children, it was more likely that that they had received the MMR between 12 to 18 months of life, regardless of race, compared to those who received MMR after 36 months.

Thompson is quoted as telling Dr. Hooker that,
“The effect is where you think it would happen. It's with the kids with out other conditions.”

AMC reports that Thompson has provided documentation showing that CDC then abandoned the research protocol, revising the age groups examined so that children over the age of 36 months were no longer included in the study, and limiting the co-morbid conditions to ONLY Mental Retardation.

The video then further proposes that it may be that those changes were not enough to get rid of the association that they were finding between the MMR and autism, “... since in the end they simply omitted the relevant findings from the paper all together. Those findings were concealed from the editors of Pediatrics, its reviewers and the public.”

7/29/15 - Rep. Bill Posey brings to the floor of the House of Representatives former CDC researcher and now Whistleblower, Dr. Bill Thompson's letter regarding significant files they omitted and destroyed to avoid reporting any significant race effects in their study.  The statement by Thompson reports that he participated in a meeting where his research team put a garbage can in the middle of the room and threw away data relavant to the links between MMR and Autism.  Posey calls for formal hearings into the scandal, and offers the documents that Posey has turned over to his office to all members of Congress. http://www.c-span.org/video/?c4546421/rep-bill-posey-calling-investigation-cdcs-mmr-reasearch-fraud

Activists highlight the new revelation in a campaign under #GarbageCan.

8/20/15 - Kevin Barry, Esq. releases his book, Vaccine Whistleblower: Exposing Autism Research Fraud at the CDC.  "A Firsthand Account from a CDC Insider on the Link between Vaccines and Autism

Vaccine Whistleblower is a gripping account of four legally recorded phone conversations between Dr. Brian Hooker, a scientist investigating autism and vaccine research, and Dr. William Thompson, a senior scientist in the vaccine safety division at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Thompson, who is still employed at the CDC under protection of the federal Whistleblower Protection Act, discloses a pattern of data manipulation, fraud, and corruption at the highest levels of the CDC, the federal agency in charge of protecting the health of Americans. Thompson states, “Senior people just do completely unethical, vile things and no one holds them accountable.”

This book nullifies the government’s claims that “vaccines are safe and effective,” and reveals that the government rigged research to cover up the link between vaccines and autism. Scientific truth and the health of American children have been compromised to protect the vaccine program and the pharmaceutical industry.

The financial cost of the CDC’s corruption is staggering. The human cost is incalculable. Vaccine Whistleblower provides context to the implications of Thompson’s revelations and directs the reader to political action."

Vaccines Covered In Republican Presidential Debate Exposes Candidates’ Concern Over “Too Many Too Soon”
Written by The Canary Party   
Thursday, 17 September 2015 20:10

Last night’s Republican Presidential Debate featured a discussion on vaccination in light of the Disneyland measles outbreak that went differently than the debate moderators anticipated.

A question was posed to Dr. Ben Carson asking if Donald Trump should stop linking childhood vaccinations to autism. In the discussion that followed, Dr. Carson made the following statement, “….It is true that we are probably giving way too many 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.”

Donald Trump added to the conversation that autism has become an epidemic and “has gotten totally out of control.” Mr. Trump then advocated for smaller doses of vaccines over a longer a period of time. Senator Rand Paul also chimed in, “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 my vaccines out a little bit at the very least.”

The Canary Party thanks these three brave candidates, two of whom are physicians, for having an honest conversation about vaccination. We are especially grateful for their recognition that our country has an immunization schedule that many parents see as too aggressive and rigid.

In the inevitable, post-debate commentary, many pundits have attacked the candidates for their remarks, repeating the tired claims that all connections between autism and vaccines have been “discredited.” None of these pundits acknowledge the admissions of fraud by a CDC insider that have discredited the government-funded studies that have fed the propaganda campaigns in defense of the federally-protected vaccine program. Dr. William Thompson, a vaccine safety analyst at the CDC, admitted that he and his co-authors “omitted statistically significant information” in a 2004 study that would have associated the MMR vaccine with autism. Instead, they published a paper in 2004 that exonerated MMR and held a secret meeting in order to destroy the evidence of fraud. Another CDC-funded researcher, Dr. Poul Thorsen, participated in several of the studies that found no role for vaccines in autism is currently on the Office of Inspector General’s “Most Wanted” list for fraud. Contrary to what is widely reported in the media, and by the former pharmaceutical executives at Autism Speaks, there is a great deal of research that does link vaccines and autism and explores the mechanisms by which this process can happen.

We urge all candidates in the presidential election to review the research for themselves. We also call on them to heed the statement made by Congressman Bill Posey on the floor of the House of Representatives in July. Rep. Posey reported that Dr. Thompson had submitted a statement to his office testifying that his research team at CDC had gone to the lengths of bringing a garbage can into a meeting to throw away data that showed vaccine autism links so they would not have to include it in their findings. We ask that all candidates for higher office join Posey in calling for Congressional hearings into the scandal.

The Canary Party will continue to work to support and educate those candidates who take vaccine safety seriously and who seek to continue to have open, honest and brave conversations on this critical issue.

Tell the House Oversight & Government Reform Committee That We Want Hearings
Written by The Canary Party   
Tuesday, 23 June 2015 11:41

It is time for us to write to Jason Chaffetz, the new Chair of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, to respectfully request that he move forward with holding hearings on Dr. William Thompson's admission that he participated in the cover up of links between vaccines and autism at the Centers for Disease Control. We have learned from Dr. Thompson that a causal link between autism in black boys and the MMR vaccine, when given before age of three, was suppressed by CDC “higher-ups.”. Through the use of a collection of unethical statistical tricks, these senior officials at CDC chose to publish “reassuring” findings when the honest result of their analysis showed clear links between early vaccination with MMR and autism risk, both in African American boys and children with “isolated” (meaning normal in all other respects) autism. Members of Congress have spent many months reviewing the documents that Dr. Thompson turned over, debating which committee had proper jurisdiction in the matter, and have settled on OGR. Now we begin the process of holding OGR to the task of investigating this 15-year-long national scandal in depth.
Please write to Congressman Chaffetz and request that he schedule hearings soon. Please be respectful in your communications, let Rep. Chaffetz and other committee members know that you are following this story very closely, and that your expectation is that OGR is going to keep the pressure on CDC to reveal the truth and to take the matter with the seriousness and urgency that it requires. Only OGR is positioned to expose and remedy the corruption in our nation's vaccine program.

We also encourage you to tweet and FB to the committee and its members on a regular basis to educate them on developments in the #CDCwhistleblower scandal.

It has been a long year for us as we have waited for the jurisdictional questions to be resolved; now it is up to us to help these Members of Congress face the difficult task of rooting out the lies that have harmed our children. No doubt they are all under immense pressure to preserve the status quo and let the CDC's transgressions remain overlooked so they can continue their unethical “business as usual.” It is our task to respectfully educate them and empower them to act on our behalves, as they are chartered and required to do. They will face many obstacles to issuing the subpoenas that will be needed to get the truth out, so we must support them in acting on what will be an unpopular action among many of the powerful corporate interests that oppose us.

Poll Shows 72% of Californians Think Parents and Doctors—Not Politicians Should Make Decisions About Vaccinating Children
Written by Canary Party   
Monday, 27 April 2015 23:46


SACRAMENTO, CA—Survey USA released new poll results today showing the majority of California residents believe parents and doctors, and not bureaucrats at the State Capitol, should make vaccination choices. SB277 (Pan/Allen) eliminates the Personal Belief Exemption for vaccination, and would deny a child the right of a classroom education if their parents chose to exempt them from one, some or any of California's state-mandated vaccines.

Opposition to this bill has reached record numbers. More than 1000 concerned California parents have shown up to express their opposition during recent Health and Education Committees hearings, many making trips multiple times from all over the state.

Bills like SB277 are dying all over the country because this is America and we value freedom. In recent weeks, Oregon, Washington, Maryland, North Carolina, New Mexico, Illinois and Texas realized their proposed bills like SB277 were far too draconian to impose on their citizens. Those bills died. Is California going to join ranks with only Mississippi and West Virginia and be the third state that does not value parental choice,” asked Jude Tovatt of the California Coalition for Health Choice.

Many of the organizations opposed to SB277 point to AB2109, a California law implemented in 2014 that requires parental counseling from medical professional before a PBE can be signed. Senator Pan, then Assemblyman Pan, sponsored that bill. Since AB2109 has passed, PBEs have gone down 20%.

Senator Pan needs to give his own prior legislation more time to work. AB2109 has resulted in a 20% reduction in PBEs. SB277 goes way too far and infringes on parental rights. This bill seems to be an answer to a problem that does not exist. Only 2.54% of kindergarten students are on a PBE, and hold them for a variety of good reasons. Most California children are fully vaccinated and now we know from this important poll that most Californians do not support this legislation,” said Sylvia Pimentel, California State Director of the Canary Party.

Science for Sale: How the US Government Uses Powerful Corporations and Leading Universities to Support Government Policies, Silence Top Scientists, Jeopardize Our Health, and Protect Corporate Profits Hardcover – June 3, 2014
by David L. Lewis PhD (Author)

When Speaker Newt Gingrich greeted Dr. David Lewis in his office overlooking the National Mall, he looked at Dr. Lewis and said: “You know you’re going to be fired for this, don’t you?” “I know,” Dr. Lewis replied, “I just hope to stay out of prison.” Gingrich had just read Dr. Lewis’s commentary inNature, titled “EPA Science: Casualty of Election Politics.” Three years later, and thirty years after Dr. Lewis began working at EPA, he was back in Washington to receive a Science Achievement Award from Administrator Carol Browner for his second article in Nature. By then, EPA had transferred Dr. Lewis to the University of Georgia to await termination—the Agency’s only scientist to ever be lead author on papers published in Nature and Lancet.

The government hires scientists to support its policies; industry hires them to support its business; and universities hire them to bring in grants that are handed out to support government policies and industry practices. Organizations dealing with scientific integrity are designed only to weed out those who commit fraud behind the backs of the institutions where they work. The greatest threat of all is the purposeful corruption of the scientific enterprise by the institutions themselves. The science they create is often only an illusion, designed to deceive; and the scientists they destroy to protect that illusion are often our best. This book is about both, beginning with Dr. Lewis’s experience, and ending with the story of Dr. Andrew Wakefield.


David L. Lewis, PhD, changed dentistry to a heat-sterilization standard worldwide in 1992 when his research at the University of Georgia showed that germicides recommended by the CDC and FDA could not prevent common dental devices from causing sporadic cases of HIV infection. As a veteran microbiologist in EPA’s Office of Research & Development, his medical and environmental research and commentaries on the politics of science have been covered in news articles and documentaries by every major media outlet, from Reader’s Digest to National Geographic.
Plague: One Scientist’s Intrepid Search for the Truth about Human Retroviruses and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS), Autism, and Other Diseases Hardcover – November 18, 2014
by Kent Heckenlively  (Author), Judy Mikovits  (Author)

On July 22, 2009, a special meeting was held with twenty-four leading scientists at the National Institutes of Health to discuss early findings that a newly discovered retrovirus was linked to chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), prostate cancer, lymphoma, and eventually neurodevelopmental disorders in children. When Dr. Judy Mikovits finished her presentation the room was silent for a moment, then one of the scientists said, “Oh my God!” The resulting investigation would be like no other in science.

For Dr. Mikovits, a twenty-year veteran of the National Cancer Institute, this was the midpoint of a five-year journey that would start with the founding of the Whittemore-Peterson Institute for Neuro-Immune Disease at the University of Nevada, Reno, and end with her as a witness for the federal government against her former employer, Harvey Whittemore, for illegal campaign contributions to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

On this journey Dr. Mikovits would face the scientific prejudices against CFS, wander into the minefield that is autism, and through it all struggle to maintain her faith in God and the profession to which she had dedicated her life. This is a story for anybody interested in the peril and promise of science at the very highest levels in our country.

  Kent Heckenlively is a former attorney, a founding editor of Age of Autism, and a science teacher. During college Heckenlively worked for US Senator Pete Wilson, and in law school he was a writer and an editor of the school’s law review and spent his summers working for the US Attorney’s Office in San Francisco. Kent and his wife Linda live in Northern California with their two children, Jacqueline and Ben.


Judy Mikovits, PhD, spent twenty years at the National Cancer Institute, working with Dr. Frank Ruscetti, one of the founding fathers of human retrovirology, and has coauthored more than forty scientific papers. For five years she was the research director of the Whittemore-Peterson Institute for Neuro-Immune Disease. Dr. Mikovits lives in Southern California with her husband, David.
Vaccines 2.0: The Careful Parent's Guide to Making Safe Vaccination Choices for Your Family Paperback – February 3, 2015
by Mark Blaxill (Author), Dan Olmsted (Author)

The CDC’s bloated vaccine schedule has doubled since 1988, after the federal government gave pharmaceutical companies immunity from lawsuits. Autism and other childhood disorders like asthma, ADHD, juvenile diabetes and digestive ailments have skyrocketed. And parents are understandably nervous, desperate for objective guidance that takes those concerns seriously.

Vaccines 2.0 looks at the lengthy roster of today’s recommended injections, the documented risks that accompany them, and helps parents choose a schedule based on unbiased, uncensored, unconflicted science. From whether to get a flu shot during pregnancy--and how to avoid dangerous mercury if you do--to the Hep B shot within hours of birth, to the controversial Gardasil vaccine for preteens, Vaccines 2.0/i> provides the tools to decide for yourself.

The three sections cover: Why should you care? What should you know? What can you do? The exclusive Risk-Reward Assessment assigns a numerical score to each of the 14 recommended vaccines. Also included is information on learning to spot, report and treat side effects; talking to your doctor and finding a sympathetic one if you can't, and comparing alternative schedules if you decide to delay or skip shots. When it comes to your child, it's your choice. Vaccines 2.0 will give you the information you need to choose wisely.

The Vaccine Court: The Dark Truth of America's Vaccine Injury Compensation Program Hardcover – November 11, 2014
by Wayne Rohde  (Author)

A hard look at the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program and the families desperately trying to navigate their way through it.

The Vaccine Court looks at the mysterious and often unknown world of the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP), the only recourse for seeking compensation for those who have been injured by a vaccine. The NVICP, better known as the ”Vaccine Court,” however, is not without controversy.

Established by Congress as a direct result of the passage of the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986, the NVICP was supposed to offer a no-fault alternative to the traditional injury claims filed in state or federal courts and was to provide quick, efficient, and fair compensation for those who have been injured by vaccines. The reality, however, is that many cases take several years or longer to complete and require tremendous commitment from families already pushed to the brink of bankruptcy caring for the vaccine-injured family member, only to discover that the end result is manipulated by the government in defense of the US vaccine policy.

Mr. Rohde looks into the inner workings of the US Federal Claims Court and the NVICP. He interviews families who have filed petitions and won compensation, families who have been denied compensation, and families still waiting for a decision. By highlighting the journeys of these families—their efforts to find attorneys willing to represent them, the filing of their petitions, and the subsequent mountain of paperwork, medical records, and other documents that span years—Mr. Rohde exposes the bitter truth behind the NVICP. Through his thoughtful interviews and fact-finding research, The Vaccine Court sheds light on how the NVICP has evolved into something far more treacherous than what Congress envisioned with the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act in 1986.


Wayne Rohde is a co-founder of Vaccine Safety Council of Minnesota, Autism Advocacy Coalition of Minnesota, and national advisory member of Health Choice.
Wayne has twin sons, age 16, Nicholas and Austin. Nicholas was vaccine injured and later diagnosed with regressive autism. Mr. Rohde has advocated extensively in Minnesota, Oklahoma and nationally for autism health insurance reform, vaccination choice and improved educational, employment and residential services for people with autism.
Wayne lives in Woodbury, Minnesota with his wife and twin sons.
Vaccine Injuries: Documented Adverse Reactions to Vaccines – November 18, 2014

by Lou Conte (Author), Tony Lyons (Author)

Reveals the truth behind the controversial issue of vaccine-related injuries.

Proponents declare that vaccines have saved millions of lives. Critics claim that the success is overstated and that vaccines may even be dangerous. Many consider mandatory vaccinations a violation of individual rights or religious principles. Many in public health argue that vaccine mandates are critical and justified and that antivaccination sentiment has resulted in outbreaks of preventable childhood illnesses. Vaccine critics point to mainstream medicine’s denial of and underreporting of vaccine injury.

Vaccine injuries have happened in the past and continue to happen today, and neither the mainstream medical establishment nor the government has ever fully and transparently addressed the issue of vaccine injury. In the 1980s, the United States addressed individual cases of vaccine injury by establishing the NVICP—the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program—a controversial Department of Health and Human Services program. The NVICP was intended to be “non-adversarial, compassionate, and generous” to vaccine-injury victims. However, many vaccine-injury victims and safety advocates believe that the program is not functioning as intended. There are also concerns that the program is keeping the reality of vaccine injury from public inspection.

Vaccine Injuries, a groundbreaking book in the field, reveals cases of vaccine injury from the NVICP—something that has never been offered to the public—and lets readers asses vaccine injuries for themselves.

Tony Colletti, a good suburban cop and father of a child with autism, finds himself drawn into the controversy over the apparent but rarely acknowledged connection between childhood vaccines and autism. His quest to uncover the truth forces him to risk all he holds dear while confronting corrupt government officials, the powerful pharmaceutical industry, and disturbing elements of his own past. Even while holding down his job and dealing with family crises, Colletti spearheads the drive to contend with industrial espionage, Russian gangsters, and sexual predators preying upon disabled children. He and his colleagues face powerful government and private factions that manipulate the media, fabricate scientific research, conduct shadowy judicial proceedings, and viciously attack those who question vaccine safety.

In this gripping novel, government and industry have formed an unholy alliance that places profit ahead of children’s health, one that compels ordinary Americans to fight back to protect their families and the ideals of justice. In the tradition of Ibsen’s An Enemy of the People and echoing the infamous Minamata, Japan, mercury poisoning tragedy, The Autism War reminds us how a handful of dedicated citizens armed with convincing evidence can prevail over a complacent majority and overwhelming odds.


Louis Conte is a law enforcement officer and independent investigator with the Westchester County (NY) Department of Probation. As a leading advocate for people with autism, he has championed their cause in state capitols and Washington, DC. He was the lead investigator for and coauthor of a seminal paper on the autism-vaccine controversy, “Unanswered Questions from the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program: A Review of Compensated Cases of Vaccine-Induced Brain Injury,” in the Pace Environmental Law Review, which found that the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program compensated many children with autism for vaccine-induced brain damage while declaring no link between vaccines and autism. Conte lives in Pleasantville, New York, with his wife, Andrea, and their three sons, Thomas, Sam, and Louie.
The Big Autism Cover-Up: How and Why the Media Is Lying to the American Public Hardcover – November 18, 2014
by Anne Dachel  (Author)

An unflinching look at the truth behind the media’s lies about autism.

Autism now affects two percent of U.S. children. A once rare disorder is now so common that everyone knows someone with an affected child. Yet neither mainstream doctors nor government officials can tell the American public what is behind the staggering rise in diagnoses. 

The Big Autism Cover-Up explores how news outlets downplay the impact of autism while backing the official denial of any link between the disorder and vaccines. Despite never honestly and thoroughly investigating the link, mainstream news sources continue to challenge those who question the safety of vaccines and the mounting evidence that an unchecked, unsafe vaccination schedule is behind the exponential increase in autism.

Anne Dachel has spent the last ten years monitoring how the press covers autism. She’s seen the media promote the unrelenting message from health officials that autism hasn’t really increased, that it is simply a matter of better diagnosing of a disorder that’s always been around. Meanwhile, autism remains a perpetual mystery and scientists continue to guess at the genetic and environmental triggers.

Officially there is no known cause or cure for autism. There’s nothing a new mother can do to prevent a baby that was born healthy and is developing normally from regressing into autism by the age of two. Despite this, officials rarely express concern and adamantly refuse to call autism a crisis. The Big Autism Cover-Up exposes this controversy in searing detail.


Anne Dachel is married and the mother of four, including two who were vaccine injured.  She's a teacher and she monitors how the press covers autism.  She's media editor for the daily online autism news blog, Age of Autism.  Anne and her family live in WI.
Vaccine Epidemic: How Corporate Greed, Biased Science, and Coercive Government Threaten Our Human Rights, Our Health, and Our Children Paperback – September 1, 2012
by Louise Kuo Habakus  (Editor), Mary Holland  (Editor), Kim Mack Rosenberg (Editor)

Public health officials state that vaccines are safe and effective, but the truth is far more complicated. Vaccination is a serious medical intervention that always carries the potential to injure and cause death as well as to prevent disease. Coercive vaccination policies deprive people of free and informed consent—the hallmark of ethical medicine. Americans are increasingly concerned about vaccine safety and the right to make individual, informed choices together with their healthcare practitioners. Vaccine Epidemic focuses on the searing debate surrounding individual and parental vaccination choice in the United States.

Habakus, Holland, and Rosenberg edit and introduce a diverse array of interrelated topics concerning the explosive vaccine controversy, including the ethics of vaccination mandates, corrupting conflicts of interest in the national vaccine program, and personal narratives of parents, children, and soldiers who have suffered vaccine injury.

Newly updated with additional chapters focusing on institutional scientific misconduct, mandates for healthcare workers, concerns about HPV vaccine development, and the story behind the Supreme Court’s recent vaccine decision, Vaccine Epidemic remains the essential handbook for the vaccination choice movement and required reading for all people contemplating vaccination for themselves and their children.
