Man, have I caught an earful in the past four days. People are pissed. On fire that a Congressman would ask to cool it with the phone calls. Outraged that I’d go into a meeting and get “charmed by a politician” and I must be too stupid to know he pulled the wool over my eyes. But mostly people feel deceived that they aren’t being told every word of the meeting, and I understand that.
I’ve told you as much as I can because the Congressman asked if he could speak freely and off the record. Yes, I could turn around and type every word of my notes into this blog but then what would happen? I’d never be invited back and you’d have to find yourselves a new advocate. So, you can trust me (or not) but if I want to ever go again, I can’t tell you what was said right now.
But here’s what we can do: let’s talk about moving forward.
Chaffetz is doing the best he can do at this job, but Chaffetz isn’t our personal Jesus, and neither is Bill Thompson, who you’ve already heard wants a second bite at the 2004 study so he can explain himself and walk back the secret recordings. No, we didn’t talk about that in the Chaffetz meeting at all so I’m not foreshadowing anything here. You’ve already heard it through Brian Hooker, on Autism Media’s Periscope, and through a written statement from Focus For Health.
We all want a hearing where a perfect written record of CDC corruption is established and Bill Thompson saves the day. That might happen– or it might not– but let’s keep working toward it. There are 43 members of the Oversight Committee but hundreds of people keep calling one guy. Yes, he’s the Chairman but he’s one human being. Let’s get him some support from the rest of his Committee.
I’ll put a list of phone numbers and addresses for the other 42 congressmen/women on the Oversight Committee at the end of this entry. The phone calls fanned out to them should:
#1 educate the committee member’s staff who answers the phone about the fact that the CDC Whistleblower exists and there is an ongoing Oversight Committee investigation that they likely don’t even know about; and
#2 ask what each Congressman can do to demand that the CDC comply with the document requests.
Leave your name and your phone number and ask to be called back. You might not even be considered for a callback if you don’t live in their district, so adjust your expectations, but you never know.
If you live in the district of the congressman you’re calling and you have a “voting bloc” you lead of people who have this common interest, make sure you tell them that in the message and ask for a call back. To say you have a voting bloc has no meaning, really, but if you’ve got a blog following of 50k+ vaccine freedom readers I’d mention it on the phone. Find your own congressman by clicking here.
Then get out some paper, pen, envelope and a stamp. I know it’s been a while since we’ve used those things– I don’t even know where I’d find an envelope in my house. In fact, include a self-addressed stamped envelope in your letter and tell them you want answers, not a form letter, returned to you.
On the paper, repeat steps 1 and 2 above in a handwritten letter. Then also:
#3 educate the members about what vaccine injury looks like, how it’s anything but rare, and include your personal story if you have one or send them to hearthiswell.org; and
#4 tell each Congressman what the legislative fix you want to see is.
What’s a legislative fix? It’s the things we want to see happen because our CDC is run by fraudsters. The legislative fix is our goal, and the hearing is but one vehicle for reaching that goal.
The most realistic request of a legislative fix is that the government creates a new agency that oversees vaccine safety, and they do it by taking money out of the CDC vaccine safety budget and give it to the new agency so that we’re not creating any debt. Win-win, right? What sane person would be opposed to creating an independent agency to make sure vaccines are safe, and doing it without expanding the budget? Get vaccine safety out of the Immunization Safety Office out of the CDC and create a National Vaccine Safety Board as an independent federal agency charged by Congress to investigate vaccine injury. It goes without saying that any CDC, FDA, or pharmaceutical employees stockholders or lobbyists are not invited to join the board.
The second most realistic legislative fix is that we finally conduct a large-scale vaccinated vs. unvaccinated study in this country. The CDC already has all of the data; we just need the funding and a trusted independent epidemiologist to conduct the study across all health outcomes– allergies, asthma, ADD/ADHD, eczema, juvenile diabetes, epilepsy, immune deficiency, pediatric cancer, gastrointestinal illness– not just autism.
Probably the least likely legislative fix would be reforming the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program. I said the other day that our request was to have it repealed, but realistically that’s not a request that would garner much support from a government where pharmaceutical companies are bigger and badder than the NRA– that’s not to say I don’t want to see it done. More than anything I want pharma to be liable. But what industry wouldn’t want the sweet deal that pharma got of zero liability for their products? They’ll fight to the death protecting it. If we teach consumers to reject the product (which would be unstoppable after a vaxed vs. non-vax study), fight vaccine mandate legislation, and get an honest-to-God vaccine safety agency, the need for the court will plummet.
Just short of repeal, opening up the vaccine court law to revision and reform could quickly turn into an instance of “be careful what you wish for,” which is exactly what it has been since 1986. It’s been used in ways the drafters never intended– with a limited injury table, short statute of limitations, zero advertising of its existence, funds squandered on rigged safety studies, and cases that drag on for years in contentious proceedings where the government fights compensating ruined lives with expert witnesses. It’s a disaster, no doubt. It absolutely needs to be reformed but we’re opening ourselves up to it being made worse by pharma poison pills. Reformation is something that will take a lot of thought with input from the best vaccine injury lawyers in the country and would need a lot of bipartisan support to fight off pharma intrusion. That’s why it’s at the end of my list.
My personal dream legislative fix that we did not discuss in the meeting would be to overhaul the CDC childhood vaccination schedule. I want hepatitis b on day one of life taken off and be reserved for hep b positive mothers. If you want your kid to have this vaccine, get it when they’re 12. I want the rotavirus vaccine to disappear from this country. I want flu vaccines to go to the incinerater, but I’d accept flu vaccines being banned from pregnant mothers and children under three years old. I want true zero mercury. I want the vaccine schedule to begin after 6 months old and I want it spread out with one vaccine every 60 days with no 5-in-1 shots. I want routine vitamin k shots to go away and only be used in traumatic births or on parents’ request. And I want expanded contraindications to vaccination, with autism, epilepsy, juvenile diabetes and food allergies leading the list.
The most important thing you can do this year is vote, and a vote that flips the US House to democrat would be a nail in the coffin of the CDC hearing and any of the legislative fixes, unless you know for a fact that your democrat US Representative wants a CDC hearing. For instance, I’ve heard that New York’s Maloney has supported us on this issue in the past, so you absolutely must find out where they stand on both requiring vaccines and exposing CDC corruption.
At the core of their party democrats want big government and to be in control of public health. Conservatives tend to best represent (diluted) libertarian beliefs of autonomy, parental rights, and smaller government. When you advocate on your state level where you have a lot more access to your elected leaders, you quickly realize that while vaccine choice knows no politics in your real life community (in fact, way more of my liberal friends are non-vax than conservative), vaccine choice is divided right down the party line in elected government, with only a few token democrats supporting us.
If the house flips, Chaffetz would be replaced by ranking member Elijah Cummings, who was on former Representative Dan Burton’s committee and did virtually nothing in that capacity. Cummings would love to see this investigation die. So consider that when you’re screaming for a Thompson hearing while voting on a straight democrat ticket– I do not want to hear you crying about the Whistleblower hearing dying and I look up your Facebook page and see you supporting Hillary Clinton. While I know for a fact that Hillary has known all about the damage done by mercury in the flu vaccine for the past decade, she doesn’t want to hear anything about the bad behavior at the CDC.
Not everyone start calling from the top of the committee list. Some of you start in the middle, some from the bottom up. After July 15th everyone is gone for the summer, so get moving soon. Hopefully there aren’t mistakes in my list, but let me know if you find one. Leave a comment and let us know what reps know about the investigation and what reps have never heard of it.
When writing your letters to the members, all addresses at the end of the lines (suite number and the house office building name) are Washington, DC 20515. There are three office buildings that house all of the representatives: Rayburn, Cannon and Longworth.
