1. World Mercury Project: Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and World Mercury Project Issue Report Regarding New Evidence of Ongoing Corruption and Scientific Misconduct at CDC

Kennedy hopes new evidence and a fresh look at criminal misconduct will result in law enforcement action, rigorous and transparent vaccine safety science, and safer vaccines.

Washington, DC – In a new report released today, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and his team outlined various criminal acts on the part of employees and consultants for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) whose questionable ethics and scientific fraud have resulted in untrustworthy vaccine safety science.

Among other information, Kennedy has found additional evidence of criminal activity by the CDC consultant, Poul Thorsen, the author and principal coordinator of multiple CDC studies exonerating the mercury-based preservative thimerosal in the development of autism. 

The new evidence, recently uncovered by The World Mercury Project, shows that Thorsen and his collaborators did not obtain permission from an Institutional Review Board (IRB) to conduct their research, which was published in the New England Journal of Medicine in 2002 and Pediatrics in 2003. In 2011, The Department of Justice indicted Thorsen on 22 counts of wire fraud and money laundering for stealing over $1 million in CDC grant money earmarked for autism research. The product of Thorsen’s work for CDC was a series of fraud-tainted articles on Danish autism rates that, today, form the backbone of the popular orthodoxy that vaccines don’t cause autism.

In 2009, when CDC discovered that Thorsen never applied for the IRB approvals, staff did not report the errors and retract the studies. Rather, FOIA documents show that CDC supervisors ignored the missteps and covered up the illegal activity.

This misconduct, undermines the legitimacy of these studies, which were used to refute vaccine injury claims in the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP). The studies were also used in the NVICP’s “Omnibus Proceeding” to dismiss 5000 petitions by families who claimed that their children had developed autism from vaccines. These claims, if settled in the claimants’ favor, would have resulted in payouts totaling an estimated $10 billion. 

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., Chairman, stated, World Mercury Project calls upon Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, to extradite Thorsen back to the U.S. to face prosecution. We also call upon Secretary of Health and Human Services, Dr. Tom Price, to retract the Thorsen-affiliated autism research papers that are the fruit of illegally conducted research.” and


2. Dr Judy Wileyman Report: Newsletter 174 Private Corporations Direct Global Vaccination Programs
19 September 2017

The Australian government does not inform the public that the International Federation of Pharmaceutical Manufacturers and Associations and Biomedical companies are influencing the design of the Australian government (and all World Health Organisation countriesvaccination programs through the GAVI Alliance – the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunisation. 

Vaccines are not being added to national programs to address the specific public health needs of each country but on the recommendation of an alliance composed of many corporations and foundations, including the World Bank and International Monetary Fund.

Here is the interview I did with Sarah Westall from Business Game Changes – The Vaccination debate: Let’s get Serious.
I hope that you will listen to this interview as she gets to the core of the political issues regarding the promotion of vaccines to governments and the public. 

Corporations are framing the vaccination debate in the media and this is resulting in the violation of human rights – our right to choose what we inject into our own bodies. 

On 15 September 2017 Australia changed its media ownership laws to allow an increase in the concentration of ownership of media in the cities. Currently Murdoch’s News Ltd corporation owns approximately 70% of Australia’s media but the new laws now allow him to expand this share to control all three media platforms – television, radio and newspapers – in a single area.   

This has serious consequences for public interest journalism that involves government health policies with vested interests. Already the vaccination debate is not being covered in the Australian media and public behaviour is being manipulated with false information that is not supported by university research or many medical practitioners. 

In Australia public interest journalism has already been curtailed by the lack of diversity in the mainstream media and now our politicians have ensured that it is possible for one media mogul to have even greater influence over public behaviour.

When government decisions are not transparent or accountable they can be framed to suit the corporate agenda and promoted to the public with false information – particularly when media diversity is reduced and powerful industry-backed lobby groups such as the the Australian Skeptics IncSAVN and Friends of Science in Medicine can influence politicians through lobbying and donations.  


Newsletter 175 Australia: Moving towards a Medical Police State 
Please see below the open letter that I have sent to the academics at the University of Wollongong that are promoting false information on vaccines to the public:

Open Letter
26 September 2017
To Vice-Chancellor, University of Wollongong (UOW), Australia, Professor Paul Wellings
Copied to Professor’s Heather Yeatman and Alison Jones, and 60 UOW academics and staff
Dear Professor Wellings,
Australia is currently implementing legislation regarding vaccination policies that will make this country a medical police state. This situation could not have happened if the University of Wollongong (UOW) had maintained academic integrity in the debate on vaccination. But instead the UOW has allowed industry-associated lobby groups to promote false information about vaccination research – both on its website and in the mainstream media – using the UOW logo.
This disinformation campaign using the UOW logo has been promoted by Dr. Matthew Berryman, Dr. John Cunningham, Professor Heather Yeatman, and Professor Alison Jones. The University also requested that ~60 UOW academics sign their name to the false information provided by Heather Yeatman in her promotion of immunisation on the UOW website.
Heather Yeatman has never researched vaccination or immunisation policies. She is an expert in nutrition not immunisation or immunology. Her comments on the UOW website contradict the in-depth research presented in my PhD on this topic, also published on the UOW website. Promoting immunisation with the personal opinion of a non-expert in immunisation is a breach of academic integrity by UOW.
Here is a link to my interview with Sarah Westall from the US program, Business Game Changers, that describes the political processes that have facilitated this situation. It is titled ‘The Vaccination Debate: Let’s get Serious’ and it has been broadcast nationally throughout the US, Canada, Hawaii and Alaska. 

The University of Wollongong is running a disinformation campaign by allowing UOW academics and industry-associated lobby group activists to suppress the scientific debate on vaccination in the media by presenting their false and misleading personal opinions – using the UOW logo.
This has been achieved by adopting the following strategies:

  • Allowing a UOW staff member, Dr. Mathew Berryman (no qualifications in vaccination science or policy) to use comments from an industry-associated lobby group blog (ReasonableHank – Australian Skeptics Inc) to present false information about my UOW research in the mainstream media (June 2012).
  • Allowing an industry-associated lobby group activist, Dr. John Cunningham (who has no involvement with UOW and is an orthopaedic spinal surgeon in Melbourne), to make an anonymous complaint of ‘allegations of academic misconduct’ to UOW in 2014 about my research on the whooping cough vaccine completed in 2006. This was 8 years after the research was examined and awarded a High Distinction by UOW academics.
    The UOW apologised to me for the misuse of its complaint procedures and stated that the investigation was unwarranted. But this information was not corrected in a press release and it has been used to smear my reputation in the media and on Wikipedia. I am unable to change the false comments and opinions presented on Wikipedia.
  • In January 2016, just after UOW published my PhD on the UOW website (11 January 2016), John Cunningham, made further false and derogatory comments about the assessment of my PhD in the Australian mainstream media (Murdoch’s News Ltd press – 20 January 2016). He was then awarded an Order of Australia medal (OAM) on 26 January 2016 for “Immunisation and Science”. John Cunningham does not have any special qualifications in immunisation or publications on vaccination/policy or immunology.
  • One week after my PhD was published on the UOW website in January 2016, Professor Heather Yeatman, (expertise nutrition) was permitted to promote false information about immunisation on the UOW website that was signed by 60 other academics – none of whom have done in-depth independent research on vaccination science or policy. Heather Yeatman does not have any special qualifications in immunisation or publications  on this topic and she has promoted false information on vaccines using the UOW logo.
  • In March 2016, Professor Alison Jones (expertise toxicology) was a co-author of a paper that attempts to limit the academic freedom of researchers to scrutinise the science of vaccination. This paper is titled ‘Public Health and the Necessary Limits of Academic Freedom?’ In this paper Jones attempts to argue that the scientific debate should be curtailed in consideration of possible adverse events to human health. This is exactly the opposite to the recognised norms of evidence-based medicine that require full scrutiny of the scientific literature by all stakeholders in order to protect human health. 

A medical police state can only occur when there is a lack of transparency and accountability in government policies and in academic institutions. We are seeing this situation develop in Australia today with the suppression of the scientific debate on vaccination.

UOW has breached its charter to promote expert opinions of vaccination on its website and to allow academic debate of this scientific issue by all stakeholders in the issue.
This is aided by the misconduct and fraudulent research that is occurring at the US CDC – the body that recommends vaccines for national vaccination programs. It is not the parents who are investigating these policies that are committing fraud and misconduct – it is our government bodies and institutions. This is occurring as governments implement mandatory vaccination policies without justification in Australia.
Human health is at risk if universities are allowing lobby groups with vested interests in government policy to use their procedures to promote false information on vaccines to the public using the university logo.

3. Activist Post: The CDC’s Strange Case of Poul Thorsen, MD, PhD, Vaccine Data Manipulator “Extraordinaire”

By Catherine J. Frompovich

A few months ago after reading the book Master Manipulator, I wrote an article about Poul Thorsen, MD, PhD, the Danish medical researcher who produced the ‘premiere safety study’ that vaccines do not cause Autism; however, the study was produced fraudulently, but the CDC still promotes it and has not retracted it from vaccinology research, as science protocol requires.

One of the questionable studies involved is “A population-based study of measles, mumps, and rubella vaccination and autism” co-authored by Poul Thorsen,  See comment in PubMed Commons below N Engl J Med. 2002 Nov 7;347(19):1477-82.  It’s the study CDC particularly likes to point to regarding vaccines and Autism, and is published online here.  The research was about ethylmercury in Thimerosal attributing to and/or causing Autism.

Poul Thorsen apparently was many things and probably even at cad, at that. He ingratiated himself both personally and professionally with CDC employee, Diana Schendel, PhD, who apparently was able to ‘guide’ his research around the CDC’s Atlanta headquarters.

When the CDC was notified by Thorsen’s Denmark colleagues about inaccuracies regarding CDC grants and funding, further investigation resulted “in 22 federal criminal counts – 13 counts of wire fraud and 9 counts of money laundering,” which never have been acted upon by the USA or CDC.  Thorsen is hiding in plain sight, working and publishing articles in Denmark, with no extradition apparently requested by the CDC!  How strange? “The United States has had an Extradition Treaty with Denmark since the Nixon Administration (1974).” (Pg. 4)

Enter into the story, Attorney Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who has been investigating mercury in vaccines (ethylmercury in the preservative Thimerosal) and mercury elsewhere in the biosphere and medicine.

Mr. Kennedy founded the World Mercury Project, whose

…Mission of the World Mercury Project is to work aggressively to reduce exposure to all sources of mercury, hold accountable those who failed to protect our planet and people from these unnecessary exposures, restore health to those who have been harmed, and to establish necessary safeguards to prevent such tragedies from ever happening again.

Thimerosal is a vaccine preservative that still is in multi-dose flu vaccines and as a residual ingredient in vaccines, since during the manufacturing process, Thimerosal is used but then extracted.  CDC and FDA admit there’s a residual amount in vaccines.

According to this CDC/FDA website:

 For two childhood vaccines, thimerosal is used to prevent the growth of microbes during the manufacturing process. When thimerosal is used this way, it is removed later in the process. Only trace (very tiny) amounts remain. The only childhood vaccines today that have trace amounts of thimerosal are one DTaP and one DTaP-Hib combination vaccine.

Mr. Kennedy even went so far as to post a science challenge regarding thimerosal:  Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Esq., offered a $100,000 reward to any journalist who “can find a peer-reviewed scientific study demonstrating that thimerosal is safe in the amounts contained in vaccines currently being administered to American children and pregnant women.”   Kennedy now, however, is turning his attention to getting Poul Thorsen extradited to the USA to face legal charges.  In order to explain the “Thorsen Saga,” Kennedy engaged Beth Clay to produce an update and report about Thorsen and his legal standing.

I’ve been in contact with Beth and obtained her permission to cite verbatim information she so eloquently put together and about which I thought readers ought to know.  There needs to be a public outcry directed to Congress and the U.S. Attorney General to get the fictitious science surrounding Autism and vaccines mainstreamed as such, plus retracted by HHS/CDC/FDA and other nation states, including the World Health Organization.  Beth’s outstanding report can be found here.

The report is 21 pages plus two pages of Exhibits.  What I’d like to bring to readers’ attention are the following facts:

The U.S. CDC apparently sank $16Million into a vaccine investment fraud in Denmark!

Thorsen, apparently from the very beginning of his CDC ‘stint’, had designs of grandeur and lived high off the hog, while raising flags with his expensive Harley Davidson and suburban Atlanta home.  In Clay’s paper we find,

CDC-Danish Coverup of Ethics Violations:  The next day, the beginning of an ethical crisis began to take shape.  Coleen Boyle, Marshalyn Yeargin-Allsopp and Diana Schendel participated in a Denmark Grantees Autism/CP conference call.  Poul Thorsen participated and presumably helped bring the two new principal investigators up to speed.  He was asked to provide Aarhus University a copy of all permissions in his files ASAP.  Coleen commented that from what they had discussed, most of the activities were completed.  Diana began discussing additional projects. Soren raised the issue of bringing the CP biomarker data to Aarhus for safekeeping.  Then, there was a discussion about who had the various data and whether it could be gathered and secured all in one place.  Diana and Poul were asked to provide historical context to this.  Marshalyn asked if Aarhus could work with the Danish Psychiatric Data on the autism project. Poul stated this was the registry based data on vaccines.  He stated that permission should already be in place.  (However, it would be confirmed later that no permissions were in place and that Thorsen had never applied for them.)  [Pp. 18-19] [CJF emphasis]

Not only were the above lack of permissions going on, Clay says,

Marshalyn had more questions.  She verified that there was no medical abstraction of the autism perinatal records.   Carsten had not found original approvals and was looking to Poul to provide them.  Carsten believed they did not have permissions for the autism disorder case control study.  Poul suggested checking with Kristine. (Exhibit 40)

On the 30th of November 2009, Coleen Boyle, Diana Schendel, Marshalyn Yeargin-Allsopp colluded with Danish grantees to cover up a serious ethical violation in already published and about to be published research.  They sought to cover their tracks on their failure to ensure Poul Thorsen had obtained all the needed ethical approvals for the autism bio and genetic studies.  Two studies were published in which legally required ethical permissions were apparently never applied for and granted according to their notes. When repeatedly asked to provide them, Thorsen did not.  

In what are completely unethical acts by all involved, the team members went into damage control mode and decided that they likely could obtain permission for ongoing and future studies.  They concluded that it would probably be impossible to get permission for research that was already finalized (and published). It is absurd that experienced federal grants management officials even discussed the idea of seeking a human subject safety review retroactively.  These reviews, known as Institutional Review Boards (IRB) in the United States and Ethical Committees in Denmark are required before a study is initiated in order to protect patients and patient records from abuse. It would seem from the outset that the CDC was incompetent or inept in the management of this project.  They also failed to do a site visit for the first three years. [CJF emphasis]

Collusion on the part of yet other CDC employees to commit fraud

How many times do we have to learn about a criminal collusion culture existing at the CDC/FDA before Congress, or whoever has proper oversight since Congress seems out-to-lunch, does anything to stop vaccine fraud?

Beth Clay ‘punctuates’ an apparent “Peter Principle” [2] promotion scheme within the CDC culture:

The Peter Principle is an observation that the tendency in most organizational hierarchies, such as that of a corporation, is for every employee to rise in the hierarchy through promotion until they reach the levels of their respective incompetence. [CJF emphasis]

Look what happened to Dr. Coleen Boyle!

Dr. Coleen Boyle, who has since been promoted to be Director of NCBDDD at CDC should have shut this grant down immediately upon being informed that ethical clearances were not in place.  She should have immediately contacted the Office of Research Integrity, potentially even the Office of Inspector General.  Funding should have been discontinued.  She should have led the charge to have these papers retracted.  There should have been, at a minimum, a press release from the CDC to inform the public.  Instead, Dr. Boyle along with Dr. Marshalyn Yeargin-Allsopp, Joanne Wojcik and Dr. Diana Schendel colluded with their Danish Grantees to ‘fix it’ and retrospectively apply ethics approvals.  Their next call on 14 December 2009 closed the case on Poul providing information to Aarhus.  Joanne and Diana determined to go back through older grant applications to search for permissions. 

Not only is this an egregious cover up, but it also points to poor grant management by CDC staff.  The CDC staff responsible for this multimillion dollar grant, starting with Diana Schendel, should have had copies of all the legally required ethics permissions in hand before the Danish grantees were allowed to get started and before the first US taxpayer dollar was sent to Denmark.   [CJF emphasis]

The Clay update on Thorsen is worth reading to understand how ‘legal sleight of hand’ goes on in federal bureaucracies and agencies where unelected bureaucrats apparently become ingrained and accepted culture ‘denizens’, knowing the CDC ‘has their backs’ (a la William Thompson, PhD’s whistleblowing [3]) and they will not be held accountable.

Well, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. apparently thinks differently and has shifted his attention to getting Poul Thorsen extradited to the U.S. to “face the music” and “pay the piper” for misappropriating between One and Two Million Dollars in CDC grant money.

However, who will make whole ASD children and their families as a result of Thorsen’s and other CDC researchers’ fraudulent work stating no association between Autism and vaccines, when in fact, there IS?
