“These same officials have covered up the embezzlement of Federal funds by CDC grantee, Dr. Poul Thorsen as well as the romantic relationship between Thorsen and his CDC grant supervisor, Dr. Diana Schendel. As described by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., this agency is truly “a cesspool of corruption” and should be disqualified from protecting the health of our children.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Documents obtained by the Freedom of Information Act indicate that Centers for Disease Control (CDC) officials gave preferential treatment to the Danish grantees (including Dr. Poul Thorsen) at Aarhus University, and took no apparent action to evaluate the veracity of any of the study data when theft of over $1 million of grant money by Thorsen was made known. Furthermore, in 2009, when CDC officials including Dr. Coleen Boyle (Director of the National Center for Birth Defects and Development Disabilities [NCBDDD]), Marshalyn Yeargin-Allsopp (Chief of the Developmental Disabilities Branch), Joanne Wojcik (Public Health Analyst, Developmental Disabilities Branch), and Diana Schendel (former CDC NCBDDD senior epidemiologist) became aware that Thorsen failed to obtain legally required ethics permissions for the autism bio and genetic data projects, these CDC employees worked with the Danish grantees to hide this fact.

…studies were conducted and results published without legally-required ethics clearances.

These officials have never made public that both the validity of childhood autism in the Danish Psychiatric Central Register (Lauritsen et al. 2010 Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders) and the population-based study of measles, mumps, and rubella vaccination and autism (Madsen et al. 2002 New England Journal of Medicine) studies were conducted and results published without legally-required ethics clearances. They knew that the psychiatric registry records were reviewed without required permissions, a serious ethical violation.

On the 30th of November 2009, Coleen Boyle, Diana Schendel, Joanne Wojcik, and Marshalyn Yeargin-Allsopp, along with Danish grantees, failed to report this serious ethical violation in previously published research, as well as a study near publication. They sought to cover their tracks on their failure to ensure Poul Thorsen had obtained all the needed ethical approvals for 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.

THE ATTEMPT TO BAN ASSAULT WEAPONS

“A judge in Massachusetts on April 6, 2018 ruled against a lawsuit that questioned the state’s ban on assault weapons and large-capacity magazines, declaring that the weapons were not protected by the
Second Amendment.”

So with this ruling what next, disarmament?

And now I will propose the question:

How are the common people who are already under a web of massive surveillance and an Orwellian state supposed to protect themselves, all the while at the same time, the Real ID/Chip card is already being issued by many of the states?”

In addition, what about the our rights to protect ourselves from foreign invaders who are soldiers from another country? Are we the people going to use pitch forks to defend ourselves. It is likely that any tyrannical government which has more fire power than the people will use their “nuclear” option to eliminate freedom at any stage of the game. And in the case of the U.S., the very foundation of America is already at stake. Yet the mainstream media will not tell you this because they are an accomplice in an agenda that is meant to chip away at the rights of the people. Surely, this sinister and shadow agenda is meant to offer the people more “protection” right?

Now, if you fell for that I would hope that one day soon your eyes will be opened to the truth. And the truth is this. One’s “safety”, security, overpopulation, pollution, a dying planet, chaos, climate change and homicides are already being used by governments and the mainstream media as a plan to enslave the masses. But besides America, which country best fits this description? It is the worker bees of China who have their bed in the back and are part of the Communist “collective” which are one of the most oppressed peoples of all time. Let’s not forget that the country is called “The Peoples Republic of China.” It has a nice ring to it but how many of the billions of these people know the truth?

Minnesota: Boomers express fear of doctors & hospitalization

“Attendee’s reported that when they were hospitalized, they were given sedatives (chemical restraint) against their will. Add to this that many talked about the callous treatment they received by hospital staff, including at times (but not often), physical abuse. Virtually all in attendance were concerned that if they were hospitalized, they would never return home.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

At a recent local meeting here in Minnesota with approximately 60 elderly individuals, 60 and over, several things caught my attention that I found alarming. The recent revelations about the lack of oversight, concern, and ongoing abuse, neglect and exploitation of seniors in nursing homes was paramount, many fearing or believing that at some point they would end up in one of these houses of horror.  Reports of a senior in an assisted living facility, who had died two days prior without anyone noticing, must have terrorized these people even more.

The most relevant comments I heard during this meeting were:

Many were absolutely terrified of their physicians

Several spoke about the verbal assaults levied at them by their physicians for daring to question medications and the actual need for them. These assaults included threats of having them forced into nursing homes or other facilities (hospice?)for lack of compliance with prescribed medications. Many people spoke about the collateral damage caused by medications that had resulted in new medical conditions they had not had previously. Complaints about the medications in question, resulted in their physician openly mocking and deriding them and ended with various threats.

Drugs, drugs and more drugs

A general conversation followed with many expressing their fear of their own physicians and reported feeling threatened or coerced by them. Several reported that they no longer went for medical treatments as a result, unless their health was seriously impaired. Several reported being prescribed 6 or more medications for reasons they did not understand or for conditions that were not present but were prescribed as a “preventative”. More
