RFK Jr.’s deadly anti-vaccine ‘gospel’
New York Post, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 1/11/2017 4:24:26 AM

We’re relieved that Team Trump has denied Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s claim that the president-elect is naming him to chair a commission on “vaccination safety and scientific integrity.” That would’ve been putting a madman in charge of the asylum. RFK is the national spokesman for the Looney Tunes brigade that claims pediatric vaccines cause autism and a vast government conspiracy is to blame. The scientific consensus disproving these claims is overwhelming. Yet Kennedy has still traveled the nation preaching his ludicrous gospel — even at one time talking of “a holocaust” that’s “destroyed the lives of 20 million children.” Thanks to such quackery,

On one hand, naming him to the group might have been a good thing. He would be surrounded by people that very much pro-scientific evidence and the resultant report would be exactly like all the other studies that are pro-vaccine. He would then be standing out there all alone and exposed as a fake for all to see. Just a thought.

Just the Kennedy name alone speaks of a legacy of social engineering and power-mongering. We´ve managed to put the name of Clinton in its proper place in history, I hope someday we can scrape the remnants of the Kennedy family into the dustbin of history as well. Dump them right on top of Oblahblah as a pile of the most vile examples of Leftism.

I really despise the Kennedys and hold them in contempt...

It is sad to see good people struggling to deal with autism and its enormous challenges. How tempting then, to seize on an easy, finger-pointing ´answer,´ blaming Big Pharma and evil doctors for our troubles. Unfortunately, the blamers are victims of bad science, a charlatan´s old faked numbers, and a sleazy politician´s grab for witch-hunt fame. The theory was totally discredited years ago, and long after the mercury compounds were removed, even in unvaccinated children, we still have autism. Later studies by reputable institutions point to genetic developmental damage. Those poor gullible souls who believed the bad science, and still refuse to vaccinate their children do a huge disservice to not only their own little ones, but to others. Such ignorance and superstition is shameful. And I am appalled that Trump would appoint that corrupt Kennedy idiot to any public post. What a terrible, stupid move. Plays right into the preconception that Trump is an ignoramus, scientically illiterate. Hate to see the Dems nodding triumphantly and saying, "Toldja so."

I´ve heard all the reports and studies. But no one can tell me why that in a 10 year period, three families in our neighborhood had 2 autistic kids, 1 deaf child, another with JRA.
Their families did not have any history with any of these diseases. There were two other families with a total of 9 other kids. They didn´t get the shots. They were all healthy.

Perhaps this is the one designated to NOT be confirmed. Hmm
You know that at least one nominee is likely to not be confirmed, let it be Joe.

Have always thought it was up to the President-elect to announce his commissions and appointments. That is why skepticism reigned when it was read that Robert Kennedy, Jr. announced his own appointment.

Also, was very surprised to see that the major news media ran with what Kennedy said without first confirming it with the Trump people. On second thought, maybe not so surprised.

The fake news is getting deep. There is no such thing as a "scientific consensus", it´s an oxymoron. There is scientific evidence, there is scientific theory, and there is human consensus, but there is no such thing as scientific consensus.

For the record I do not believe in conspiracy theories, they are almost always a hoax. Vaccines have a large body of scientific evidence that they are generally safe, with a very small percentage of negative reactions.

“...with a very small percentage of negative reactions. …”

Therein lies the problem! And if my child is the only one not vaccinated how is he a danger to all the other children who HAVE been vaccinated?

And mercury has not been removed from Flu vaccine. Read the enclosed paper!

By the way, I despise JFK, Jr. and all he stands for!
Please, Donald, find someone else!

Not vaccinating kids only works because of those who were willing to take the risk. So they are reaping the rewards of protection on the backs of others.

What #12 said, in spades.

NOTHING is 100% risk free. We are all dead, in the end.

Getting out of bed every day is a risk, but so is staying in bed.

The risks of not vaccinating children are many millions of times worse than any risks of vaccinating children. In centuries past, typically 1/5th to half of children died in their youth.

Around 100 million people died worldwide only a century ago from the flu. Smallpox killed millions, too. Now we can get vaccinated against them, and even if they miss the mark a bit on the flu strain, it is just a minor inconvenience for a few days. Smallpox is almost gone. Now it is rare that a child dies of disease.

Vaccinations is a huge part of the reason. Eliminate them and the diseases will roar back and once again scythe down millions of children and adults.

Vaccinate your kids. Not to do so is parental neglect. As the earlier poster said, there used to be a world with no protection against diseases. Now that they are available, it is beyond foolish not to protect your children as much as possible.

Agree with #2 - a health-professional relative and also a pediatrician friend have many children patients who developed autism immediately after receiving childhood immunizations. Two major points: first, the actual anti-disease components of these vaccines are probably not the problem - it´s the extra stuff they put in the formulas (called adjuvants) that probably cause the damage. (E.g., there is still thimerisol (mercury) in some vaccines); second, the practice of giving multiple vaccines at the same time can overload the very tender immune systems of children, especially those who are naturally "weak" or susceptible to reactions. The hysteria that an unvaccinated child is a major health risk is overblown and being used to sell the pro-vaccine case. What happened to just having and recovering from a childhood disease that rendered the person immune for life?

Agree with #2 and #15, particularly #2´s last sentence...
As a first-time gramma who was raised a Christian Scientist [not seeing doctors, but know better now as well as now a Believer in Christ] as a child and having had measles and was quarantined in home by my then wise parents, doing much research and have one question to pediatricians and others?

Why does a newborn baby before leaving hospital need a hepitatis B vaccine who has had no illegal drug use or unprotected sex?

The answer is "To get parents in the ´system´ for over 50 more vaccines."

If you look at a map that shows occurrences of typical childhood disease in the Los Angeles area, for example, all of the outbreaks are in the prosperous west side. There were no instances - none - in East LA because parents there have their children vaccinated. Kids in West LA are taking advantage of the herd immunity that´s created when 90%-plus of children are vaccinated.

Of course, discuss a sensible plan and schedule for vaccinating children with your pediatrician - there´s no need to take all the vaccinations at once! - but by all means do vaccinate your children. Their young lives depend on it, and your children depend on you to do the right thing.

BTW the British doctor who concocted the myth that vaccinations cause autism lost his medical license for having faked data in his "study." This is fake news if ever there were any.

#18, "Three decades ago, autism affected one in 10,000 children. Today, autism is estimated to afflict as many as one in 50."

Anyone interested, Google ´Dr. Mercola autism stats,´ someone who continues to research healthy living.

End the Income Tax
Townhall, by Katie Kieffer    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 4/24/2017 5:07:05 AM     Post Reply
Tell President Trump to ask Congress to end the federal income tax so that you and I can reach our full potential for wealth. This weekend, President Trump tweeted that a: “Big TAX REFORM AND TAX REDUCTION will be announced [on] Wednesday.” This is great news. However, as we go through the process of improving the tax code, we must encourage our politicians to do two things: 1.) Eliminate the unconstitutional federal income tax. 2.) Reduce hidden taxes that politicians eternally use to offset tax “cuts”—namely increases in federal spending. America turns 241 years old in July. We’re still a “baby” nation in contrast

A full recitation of the differences between Barack Obama and Donald Trump would fill a book. Since this is a blog, not a book, I won´t assay that gargantuan task. But I wanted to say a word about two of the things that have repeatedly struck me about the differences between the two men. I am going to leave to one side what might be the largest difference: that Obama was above all a man of lofty-sounding rhetoric, at once pragmatic in tone and utopian in aspiration, while Trump is a man of demotic and sometimes involuted rhetoric but decisive, almost impatient

   

 



 
Oakland Raiders move to Las Vegas

Las Vegas has long been known as "Sin City," and it will soon be home to one of the worst fiscal sins of all time: On Oct. 14, 2016, the Nevada state legislature approved the largest taxpayer subsidy in American sports history. As long as the NFL allowed the Oakland Raiders to move to Las Vegas, taxpayers would fork over $750 million to help fund a new $1.9 billion stadium adjacent to the Vegas strip. On March 27, 2017, NFL owners did just that, approving the move by a vote of 31-1. The Raiders´ move ends an 18-month process that saw NFL

Little Creep

Hasn’t Bill Clinton been fellated thoroughly enough? Nina Burleigh spoke for a certain variety of 1990s-style feminist when she famously said that “American women should be lining up” — on their knees — in order to express their gratitude to Bill Clinton for “keeping theocracy off our backs.”(Snip)But, as the poet said, there ain’t no cure for love, and Democrats just can’t quit the Big Creep. So they’ve turned to the Little Creep.

A gunman opens fire in Paris, killing one police officer and wounding two. Islamic State quickly claims responsibility, naming the gunman as “a soldier of the caliphate.” The savage attack is the latest of many in Paris, understandably sparking widespread fears of terrorism. But some Parisians desperately seek convenient explanations that will let them avoid the necessary conflict. “Is it because we’ve joined forces and joined a coalition in Iraq and Syria against Islamic State?” one businessman asked on Paris television. Ah, a perfectly French reaction. If only the country had been nicer to Islamic State, it wouldn’t have this

The Northwestern Memorial Hospital´s trauma bay was packed, and trauma surgeon Mamta Swaroop desperately needed a private room with a door. She couldn´t find one. So she resorted to a room enclosed only by a curtain and brought in the mother of a young man who´d been rushed in earlier. Patients chatted from the curtain´s other side. Swaroop knew this wasn´t the ideal way to deliver the news, but in a hospital trying to weather the flood of gunshot victims being wheeled in, there weren´t other options. Delicately, with the heaviness of someone who´s had dozens of these conversations, Swaroop told the

This week, New York Post columnist Maureen Callahan asks the question which I hear many liberals whispering, but rarely saying too loudly: Why can’t the Clintons just go away? That probably sounds rather mean on the face of it. Okay… let’s be honest here. It is pretty mean. But it’s also a question which the Democratic Party should finally get around to addressing if most of them have made it through the five stages of grieving between November and now. The problem is that they’re going to have a hard time breaking up with their long time dance partners when

African Americans get less sleep than whites,
an inequality stretching back to slavery

When we study racial inequality, we tend to consider factors that affect people while they are awake. Differential access to safe neighborhoods with good schools, decent jobs and unbalanced treatment by police and the courts surely have much to do with the stubborn disparities in wealth and well-being among blacks and whites, in particular. Yet it may be just as important to consider what happens when we’re asleep. Race shapes our sleep, a relationship that has surprising roots deep in our national past. African Americans suffer from a “sleep gap”: Fewer black people are able to sleep for the recommended

The Obamas have been taking a much-deserved break from politics since moving out of the White House. But next week, it´s back to reality. President Barack Obama will be in Chicago on Monday to discuss community organization and civic engagement.

A review of Donald Trump´s business career would lead one to say that he has always over-promised and under-delivered. Whether his long list of bankruptcies in the ever-profitable casino business, the failures of his "university,´ steak, vodka or clothing lines, there has been a history of putting himself first, while ignoring the needs of his constituents. We may be seeing that play out in his approach to government, as well. As in business, Trump has a constituency of one … himself … just ask his stock and bond investors, his suppliers, contractors, laborers, or even his customers. Unlike Trump, they rarely,

American Airlines suspended a flight attendant after an altercation on Friday in which the attendant took a stroller from a woman traveling with two young children and then argued with other passengers. The episode was captured, in part, on video. The encounter, at San Francisco International Airport, occurred while the woman was boarding a Texas-bound flight.

Outraged Muslims are reportedly planning a May 1 demonstration at the Amazon headquarters in Seattle, Washington. The company is under fire after several Muslim security guards demanded time and space to pray five times a day, while on the job. The guards contend in a lawsuit filed this week that the subcontractor who employs them does not appropriately accommodate their faith and retaliates against those who speak out. The Service Employees International Union and the guards allege that Amazon grants high-earning tech workers conference rooms to pray in, but they do not provide the same accommodation for contracted security officers

WASHINGTON — The day before he upended the 2016 election, James B. Comey, the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, summoned agents and lawyers to his conference room. They had been debating all day, and it was time for a decision. Mr. Comey’s plan was to tell Congress that the F.B.I. had received new evidence and was reopening its investigation into Hillary Clinton, the presidential front-runner. The move would violate the policies of an agency that does not reveal its investigations or do anything that may influence an election. But Mr. Comey had declared the case closed, and he believed
