CDC Has Known All Along How Dangerous
Vaccines Are - And Has Covered It Up...
Opinion by Consumer Advocate
October 4th, 2011
I've been working on this story for
months. There are so many parts
and paths to it, and the information I
have gathered is so shocking, it is
simply difficult to write.
Maybe it is taking so long because I
don't want to be the messenger.
And, I am going to have to break this
story up into several parts.
A man named Brian Hooker PhD has
recently filed a
lawsuit in Federal Court in Washington
DC against the Center for Disease
Control and Prevention (CDC) demanding
that the CDC quit stalling on his
Freedom of Information Act (FOIA)
requests and provide him with the public
information he is looking for.
Hooker has been making specific FOIA
requests to the CDC since March 11, 2005
on the subject of the CDC's five "Thimerosal in vaccines studies."
The CDC claims, falsely, that these
five studies prove the safety and
efficacy of Thimerosal.
Hooker had adequate reasons to be
suspicious of the CDC, and their
Thimerosal position. I will give
you those details in another article.
Hooker is a scientist and knows how
studies are supposed to be done.
When he examined those five CDC studies
he found a number of serious credibility
issues with every one of them. So
he began asking questions, and it wasn't
long before the CDC shut the door.
The CDC simply did not want a real
scientist asking them pointed questions.
Hooker wants the details, including all
communications between the parties
involved in the studies' communications
(letters, emails, etc.). He has
accumulated, over time, a massive amount
of information on the subject, and is
insistent on getting, and examining,
every last piece of paper, email,
whatever. The CDC is falling all
over itself trying to keep records away
from Brian Hooker.
Hooker has a thirteen year old son with
Autism. As usual, Brian Hooker's son was
just fine prior to being vaccinated.
I have seen what Brian Hooker has
already gathered and on the basis of
that alone I can easily reach the
conclusion, as you would, that:
CDC Has Known All Along How Dangerous
Vaccines Are - and Has Covered It Up...
What I am going to tell you about in
this article is that the
anti-vaccination movement is absolutely
right in their concerns about the
vaccine situation, and, in fact, many
parts of the movement would be far more
upset if they knew what I NOW KNOW.
The situation is far worse than you can
So, let's begin...
Where we are...
There is a massive vaccine construction based in
the United States that controls an
integral part of the world-wide health
care offering. That construction
is, rightfully so, a major
subject for argument. That
"vaccine construction" is made up of an
unholy alliance between Federal/State
agencies and the vaccine industry.
It operates without ANY oversight.
None. All efforts to even monitor
it are blocked. All efforts.
To balance that there is, world-wide, a significant
"anti-vaccination" movement made up of
very solid, concerned people. This
movement, itself, is diverse in its
interests and focus. Often there
is disagreement among advocates about the problems and
What everybody, whether
pro-vaccination or anti-vaccination,
knows, and recognizes quite well, is
that since the implementation of an
increased mandatory childhood
vaccination schedule, major health
problems have arisen within the
population base served by those
vaccinations. The point - the more
vaccines there are the more problems we
And, as Anne Dachel of Age of Autism
(AOA) says, those problems are affecting
our society at large.
According to the anti-vaccination
movement there are many different
concerns about the safety and efficacy
of vaccines. Those advocates,
rightfully, make demand of the
government agencies put in place to
monitor health programs to INVESTIGATE
and FIND SOLUTION to those issues.
And that's where the problem becomes
exacerbated - those agencies. They
are not doing what they are supposed to
be doing. They are NOT really
investigating and they are certainly NOT
finding solutions. They are doing
exactly the opposite.
There is something else, entirely, going
Let me simplify
the problem by breaking it down into its
Every government agency is set up by
simple formula. In short, when an
agency is created by Congress, or any
other means, it is given a Mission,
funding, and oversight. That
agency is subject to standard US law,
including those laws set up to regulate
all agencies. And, the employees
of that agency are expected to perform
their duties according to the law, and
the Mission of the agency.
(1) Mission - "THE
DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES
(HHS) is the United States government's
principal agency for protecting the
health of all Americans and providing
essential human services, especially for
those who are least able to help
themselves." The CDC is part
of the HHS.
(2) Oversight - One basic
policy that agencies must conform to
is "oversight." There are several ways
agencies are subjected to oversight, but
the one we are interested here we will
call "basic citizen oversight," demonstrated by the Freedom
of Information Act (FOIA) or the Data
Quality Act (DQA). In short, "we
the people" have the right to examine an
agency's daily activities. And, we
can do that in several ways. One
of those is by
The idea of
FOIA, and similar laws in individual
States called "Public Records Acts" is
fundamental. As an example, just
below, is an excerpt from the State of
California Public Records Act, enabled
GOVERNMENT CODE SECTION 6250-6270.
6250. In enacting this chapter, the Legislature, mindful of the
right of individuals to privacy, finds and declares that access to
information concerning the conduct of the people's business is a
fundamental and necessary right of every person in this state.
6251. This chapter shall be known and may be cited as the
California Public Records Act.
Every State in the US has similar law in effect. You can read the entire California Public Records Act by clicking here.
It is easy to see that "we the people"
intended, right from the beginning, to
control our agencies by observing their
daily activities - and that we mean to
observe those agencies on a "right now"
In a FOIA situation, for instance, the
government agency is required, by law,
to respond within twenty (20) days.
Twenty (20) days. Not six (6)
years as in the Hooker v CDC case...
Why did "we the people" set in place
such laws? Because, simply, "we
the people" know, quite well, that we
need to control government agencies.
In order to control them we need to
know, on a daily basis, what they are
Often we hear the statement about an
agency being "out of control." An
agency hiding what it is doing from the
public, unless "we the people"
authorized them to hide certain things,
is certainly "out of control," for that
agency has removed a primary control
If an agency is, in fact, "out of
control," then it is reasonable to
assume that every action it undertakes
is NOT in the interests of "we the
people." Why else would they
operate in that manner?
(3) Malfeasance - Another
important factor is the understanding of
what the legal term "malfeasance in
office" means in regard to Public
employees. Malfeasance is
considered to be a corrupt act, a crime,
and is punishable by imprisonment.
A simple explanation is below, an
excerpt from the Louisiana State Law:
A. Malfeasance in office is committed when any
public officer or public employee shall:
(1) Intentionally refuse or fail to perform any
duty lawfully required of him, as such officer or
(2) Intentionally perform any such duty in an
unlawful manner; or
(3) Knowingly permit any other public officer or
public employee, under his authority, to
intentionally refuse or fail to perform any duty
lawfully required of him, or to perform any such
duty in an unlawful manner.
B. Any duty lawfully required of a public
officer or public employee when delegated by him to
a public officer or public employee shall be deemed
to be a lawful duty of such public officer or
employee. The delegation of such lawful duty shall
not relieve the public officer or employee of his
C.(1) Whoever commits the crime of malfeasance
in office shall be imprisoned for not more than five
years with or without hard labor or shall be fined
not more than five thousand dollars, or both.
(2) In addition to the penalty provided for in
Paragraph (1) of this Subsection, a person convicted
of the provisions of this Section may be ordered to
pay restitution to the state if the state suffered a
loss as a result of the offense. Restitution shall
include the payment of legal interest at the rate
provided in R.S. 13:4202.
(4) Intentional Obstruction of
Justice - Constance V. Vecchione
writing for the Massachusetts Bar of
Overseers talks, below, about the
spoliation of evidence. Why is
this important? Because the Courts
have held that the Exemption (Exemption
b5) rule that CDC uses to deny requests
parallels the Rules for Discovery in
Civil cases. Vecchione says:
To the spoliator
belongs the victory? Not in the post-Enron/Andersen,
post Sarbanes-Oxley world. And not in the wake of
recent Supreme Judicial Court decisions clarifying
the scope of the obligation to retain evidence and
the penalties for failure, even negligently, to do
Mass. R. Prof. C.
3.4(a), adopted in 1998, prohibits lawyers from
unlawfully obstructing another party's access to
evidence or unlawfully altering, destroying, or
concealing a document or other material having
potential evidentiary value. The rule further
provides that lawyers cannot counsel or assist
another person in such acts. The comment to the rule
emphasizes its purpose to insure “fair competition”
in the adversary process and to secure opposing
parties’ procedural rights of access to evidence
through subpoena or discovery.
US Courts are taking destruction or
withholding of evidence seriously with
both serious civil and criminal
penalties. Vecchionne also says:
civil sanctions, lawyers and clients
should also take note of applicable
criminal statutes. The federal crime of
obstruction of justice is defined by 18
U.S.C. § 1503 to include conduct that,
among other things, corruptly endeavors
to obstruct or impede the due
administration of justice.
More, US Attorney General Eric Holder,
on orders from the President, issued a
59 page legal opinion in 2010 on the use
of Exemption 5. You can read the
whole thing by clicking
here. In short, the CDC has no
legal leg to stand on withholding
information. Just below
you will find the opening lines to the
"Exemption 5 of the Freedom of
Information Act protects "inter-agency
or intra-agency memorandums or letters
which would not be available by law to a
party other than an agency in litigation
with the agency." Courts have construed
this somewhat opaque language to "exempt
those documents, and only those
documents that are normally privileged
in the civil discovery context."
When administering the FOIA, it is
important to first note that the
President and Attorney General have
issued memoranda to all agencies
emphasizing that the FOIA reflects a
"profound national commitment to
ensuring an open Government" and
directing agencies to "adopt a
presumption in favor of disclosure."
(5) CDC Funding - 10
billion dollars a year from taxpayers -
and there is severe criticism.
Watch this short NBC video called
CDC Misusing funds. More, take
a look at the Congressional Report they
are talking about called "CDC
Off Center." The report's
first page says:
"A review of how an agency tasked
with fighting and preventing disease has

dollars for failed prevention efforts,
international junkets, and lavish
facilities, but cannot demonstrate it is

US CDC policy, assuming, as we have now
found out is simply not true, that the
US CDC really is a truthful,
knowledgeable, source for health
information. Especially on
It is, we have found, anything but
truthful and knowledgeable.
In roughly 1998 certain management
employees at the US CDC became aware,
through their own official
investigation, that there were
significant problems with the use of
Thimerosal (mercury) as a preservative
in vaccines, and that those problems
were being exacerbated by the increased
vaccine schedule. One of their top
researchers was telling them so and had
given them a Draft Report.
Decisions were made to cover up the
report, keeping it away from the public
More, because of what happened next,
those CDC employees went on to hire one
fake "study" after another countering
the results of the original Draft
Report. The author of the first of
those studies, the so-called Danish
Study, is now being indicted for fraud
in the US.
Worse, those high level CDC employees,
to cover up what was happening,
violated, and conspired to violate,
several major US laws designed to
rogue employees from just this
sort of activity.
Those CDC employee's actions had
horrible consequences - for a whole
world believed them, and relied on their
words to establish their own vaccine
consequences in terms of Autism,
By US government calculations 104
million children, a year (4 million in
the US and Canada, and 100 million in
the rest of the world), are born into
the world covered by the US CDC
recommended Childhood Vaccination
Autism - We
know, for instance, that since the
increased Childhood Vaccination Schedule
went into effect that Autism
rates in the US went from one in ten thousand (1
in 10,000) to one in one hundred ten (1
in 110). A disaster. The CDC
response - "we don't know why that's
happening." A lie - they did
know, and they do know.
Most countries do not yet keep
comparative records regarding autism
and/or neurological issues. We can
only, using the US numbers, extrapolate.
Children are a nation's largest asset...
So let's ask the question "How many children were actually
affected?" Let's do the numbers...
World wide (not counting the US and
Canada) - From 1998 to 2011 - Autism -
(1 in 110) = .9% of 100 million children
= 900,000 children - every year.
Let me say that again - 900,000
children, world wide, EVERY YEAR from
1998 to 2011, became Autistic, for a
total of eleven million, seven hundred
thousand, (11,700,000) children between
1998 and 2011.
Supposedly, Thimerosal was removed from
US/Canadian Childhood Vaccines in 2004.
So, from 1998 to 2004, using the same
formula, one hundred eighty thousand
(180,000) US children became
Making the World-wide Autism Grand Total - From
1998 to 2011 = 11,880,000 children.
And, that's not
the worst of it.

In an earlier article

I had discussed reading what
Kennedy had said earlier about the CDC.
There was a reason I was researching
what Kennedy Jr. was saying about
vaccines. Kennedy had said that

And, right there on the top page it

The One in Six
Doing the numbers: Once again
since most countries do not keep records
we must extrapolate from US numbers.
One hundred four million (104,000,000) children born
every year times thirteen years =
1,352,000,000 children born, worldwide,
between 1998 and 2011.
One in six translates to 16.7 %.
So 16.7 % of 1,352,000,000 children =
In other words, according to this
government agency website, world wide,
225,784,000 children have been
"diagnosed with a developmental
disorder and/or behavioral problem.
Two hundred twenty five million,
seven hundred eighty four thousand
children have a "developmental
disorder and/or behavioral problem?"
That's the equivalent of two thirds of
the population of the United States.
And the CDC, the supposed health
experts, say "we don't know why
So who exactly
is this CDC?
The US Center for Disease Control and
Prevention (CDC) is a branch of the US
Department of Health and Human Services
(DHHS). It's Mission, given to it
by legislation, is supposedly, as
Collaborating to create the

High sounding words - right? It
would be even better if any of it were
true - which it is not. The
reality is something totally different,
making the CDC in its entirety, an enemy
of the American people. In fact,
America's worst enemy.
In short, Americans cannot trust
ANYTHING the CDC says or does. It
has no credibility, whatsoever.
Why? It has made certain
that it is accountable to no one, and
that it has to explain itself to no
other entity. Certainly not to the

designed to force the CDC to, once
again, answer to the American

documents shortly, and explain them in
In 1998 the CDC Staff compiled a Draft
copy of an exacting internal CDC study
on vaccines which clearly pointed out
all of the dangers of those vaccines, in
detail, with explanations of why that
was true. CDC management went into
shock, forced the head of the study out
of the CDC, changed the data and the
findings of the study, and brought it
out as proving the opposite, even using
the original researcher's name on the
now faked study's title.
That started a brouhaha. The
original researcher would not back down,
and loudly, via email, complained about CDC
management putting his name on the fake
study, reversing his original findings.
He did so by addressing the largest, at
the time, meeting of the CDC and what
they call their "stakeholders," with the
REAL results of his study at a place
called Simpsonwood, and the reactions to
his address had far reaching results
It is those email communications, and
others like it, where Brian Hooker began
to unravel the CDC plot.
In 2003, even the US Congress began to
smell the CDC stink and investigated.
A Report, after a three year
investigation, prepared by the Staff of
the Subcommittee on Human Rights and
Wellness Committee on Government Reform
United States House of Representatives
"Mercury in Medicine –Taking Unnecessary
Risks" made startling conclusions.
A. Findings - Through this
investigation of pediatric vaccine
safety, the following findings are made:
1. Mercury is hazardous to humans.
Its use in medicinal products is
undesirable, unnecessary and should be
minimized or eliminated entirely.
2. For decades, ethylmercury was used
extensively in medical products ranging
from vaccines to topical ointments as
preservative and an antibacteriological
3. Manufacturers of vaccines and
thimerosal, (an ethylmercury compound
used in vaccines), have never conducted
adequate testing on the safety of
thimerosal. The FDA has never required
manufacturers to conduct adequate safety
testing on thimerosal and ethylmercury
4. Studies and papers documenting the
hypoallergenicity and toxicity of
thimerosal (ethylmercury) have existed
5. Autism in the United States has
grown at epidemic proportions during the
last decade. By some estimates the
number of autistic children in the
United States is growing between 10 and
17 percent per year. The medical
community has been unable to determine
the underlying cause(s) of this
6. At the same time that the
incidence of autism was growing, the
number of childhood vaccines containing
thimerosal was growing, increasing the
amount of ethylmercury to which infants
were exposed threefold.
7. A growing number of scientists and
researchers believe that a relationship
between the increase in
neurodevelopmental disorders of autism,
attention deficit hyperactive disorder,
and speech or language delay, and the
increased use of thimerosal in vaccines
is plausible and deserves more scrutiny.
In 2001, the Institute of Medicine
determined that such a relationship is
biologically plausible, but that not
enough evidence exists to support or
reject this hypothesis.
8. The FDA acted too slowly to remove
ethylmercury from over-the-counter
products like topical ointments and skin
creams. Although an advisory committee
determined that ethylmercury was unsafe
in these products in 1980, a rule
requiring its removal was not finalized
9. The FDA and the CDC failed in
their duty to be vigilant as new
vaccines containing thimerosal were
approved and added to the immunization
schedule. When the Hepatitis B and
Haemophilus Influenzae Type b vaccines
were added to the recommended schedule
of childhood immunizations, the
cumulative amount of ethylmercury to
were exposed nearly tripled.
10. The amount of ethylmercury to
which children were exposed through
vaccines prior to the 1999 announcement
exceeded two safety thresholds
established by the Federal government
for a closely related substance –
methylmercury. While the Federal
Government has established no safety
threshold for ethylmercury, experts
agree that the methylmercury guidelines
are a good substitute. Federal health
officials have conceded that the amount
of thimerosal in vaccines exceeded the
EPA threshold of 0.1 micrograms per
kilogram of bodyweight. In fact, the
amount of mercury in one dose of DTaP or
Hepatitis B vaccines (25 micrograms
each) exceeded this threshold many times
over. Federal health officials have not
conceded that this amount of thimerosal
in vaccines exceeded the FDA’s more
relaxed threshold of 0.4 micrograms per
kilogram of body weight. In most cases,
however, it clearly did.
11. The actions taken by the HHS to
remove thimerosal from vaccines in 1999
were not sufficiently aggressive. As a
result, thimerosal remained in some
vaccines for an additional two years.
12. The CDC’s failure to state a
preference for thimerosal- free vaccines
in 2000 and again in 2001 was an
abdication of their responsibility. As a
result, many children received vaccines
containing thimerosal when thimerosal-
free alternatives were available.
13. The Influenza vaccine appears to
be the sole remaining vaccine given to
children in the United States on a
regular basis that contains thimerosal.
Two formulations recommended for
children six months of age or older
continue to contain trace amounts of
thimerosal. Thimerosal should be removed
from these vaccines. No amount of
mercury is appropriate in any childhood
14. The CDC in general and the
National Immunization Program in
particular are conflicted in their
duties to monitor the safety of
vaccines, while also charged with the
responsibility of purchasing vaccines
for resale as well as
promoting increased immunization rates.
15. There is inadequate research
regarding ethylmercury neurotoxicity and
16. There is inadequate research
regarding the relationship between
autism and the use of mercury-containing
17. To date, studies conducted or
funded by the CDC that purportedly
dispute any correlation between autism
and vaccine injury have been of poor
design, under-powered, and fatally
flawed. The CDC’s rush to support and
promote such research is reflective of a
philosophical conflict in looking fairly
at emerging theories and clinical data
related to adverse reactions from
More, the Congressional Report made
Recommendations - which were
BLATANTLY ignored. As follows:
1. Access by independent researchers
to the Vaccine Safety Datalink database
is needed for independent replication
and validation of CDC studies regarding
exposure of infants to
mercury-containing vaccines and autism.
The current process to allow access
2. A more integrated approach to
mercury research is needed. There are
different routes that mercury takes into
the body, and there are different rates
of absorption. Mercury bioaccumulates;
the Agency for Toxic Substances and
Disease Registry (ATSDR) clearly states:
“This substance may harm you.”
8. Studies should be conducted that
pool the results of independent research
that has been done thus far, and a
comprehensive approach should be
developed to rid humans, animals, and
the environment of this dangerous toxin.
3. Greater collaboration and cooperation
between federal agencies responsible for
safeguarding public health in regard to
heavy metals is needed.
4. The President should announce a
White House conference on autism to
assemble the best scientific minds from
across the country and mobilize a
national effort to uncover the causes of
the autism epidemic.
5. Congress needs to pass legislation
to include in the National Vaccine
Injury Compensation Program (NVICP)
provisions to allow families who believe
that their children’s autism is
vaccine-induced the opportunity to be
included in the program. Two provisions
are key: First, extending the statute of
limitations as recommended by the
Advisory Commission on Childhood
Vaccines from 3 to 6 years. Second,
establishing a one to two year window
for families, whose children were
injured after 1988 but who do not fit
within the statute of limitations, to
have the opportunity to file
under the NVICP.
6. Congress should enact legislation
that prohibits federal funds from being
used to provide products or
pharmaceuticals that contain mercury,
methylmercury, or ethylmercury unless no
reasonable alternative is available.
7. Congress should direct the
National Institutes of Health to give
priority to research projects studying
causal relationships between exposure to
mercury, methylmercury, and ethylmercury
to autism spectrum disorders,
attention deficit disorders, Gulf War
Syndrome, and Alzheimer’s Disease.
So, where are
we going with this?
The problems caused by the CDC employees
that covered up the Thimerosal issue are
just about beyond belief.
It is time for a formal investigation of
certain key people now, or formerly, at
