Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s
Twisted Anti-Vaxx History

Daily Beast, by Russell Saunders

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 7/24/2014 5:13:54 AM

Despite multiple studies showing no link between vaccines and autism, RFK Jr. continues to use his position to spread that lie. What will it take to make him stop? If you’re headed to Capitol Hill with a cause, it helps to be a Kennedy. For Robert Kennedy Jr., scion of America’s most storied political family, all it takes is his name to arrange face-to-face meetings with two powerful Senators. As a physician who has traveled to Washington, D.C., with health-care advocacy groups on a number of occasions, I envy the access he displays in a recent profile in The Washington

Problem is, the story of the "storied" Kennedys is pretty tacky.

The Kennedy´s come from a long line of liars, corruption, greed and murder. RFK Jr. is just carrying on the line.

the vaccination issue is a risk/benefit issue. The vaccines may generate short term immunity but at what cost. We are experiencing an epidemic of autoimmune related illnesses in this country. I don´t criticize parents that feel the long term risks are not worth the benefit of a couple of years of potential immunity. The fact that naturally occuring immunity post illness is life time should clue everyone to the fact that there are fundamental differences between the immunization vs natural infection.

Sorry #4, debating "natural" vs vaccination-induced immunity ignores the reality of contracting these terrible diseases. You first have to survive a disease to achieve natural immunity; which often isn´t the case with some of these diseases. And those that survive are left with terrible aftereffects: Polio:crippled muscles (including those that let you breathe); Rubella: birth defects, if contracted while pregnant; mumps: sterility. Few people living today know what a disease outbreak is like, but we´ll find out if enough gullible parents choose not to vaccinate and the benefit of herd immunity goes away.

Is this the Kennedy who sounds like Katherine Hepburn? I listened to him expound for an hour or so on C-span one day a long time ago. You talk about bloviating about nothing in particular. I think that day he was all excited about rivers or some silly thing. That voice is fascinating.

Kennedys spend their lives thrashing about trying to be important for something besides their names. Lots of money and no character will do that to you.

#5, I remember a neighbor girl in an iron lung for life because of polio. My nephew (only 4 years younger than I) was left with permanently impaired eyesight because of complications from measles.

If you didn´t live it, it´s difficult to imagine.

Thousands of children used to die of communicable diseases every year.

Re #4, the vaccinated person gets more than a few years of immunity. And the risk/reward factor is heavily loaded toward the reward side. Everything has risks, but some things are very worth miniscule ones.

It is clear that many are ill-informed, perhaps by those with their own agendas.

Re the author of this article,

Russell Saunders is the pseudonym for a pediatrician in New England.

A medical doctor who undoubtedly sees the results of the anti-vaccine fad that has swept away decades during which many potentially devastating contagious diseases were virtually eradicated in our country.

Those who blather about risk have no idea what they are talking about. Most are too young to know better. Others have picked up bogus information or are into so-called "natural medicine". Well, so have been many primitive peoples and we know what disease did to them. They had their witch doctors and we seem to have ours, preaching bogus health counseling when they haven´t a clue.

As for the "autoimmune" diseases, the primary one - HIV - is not caused by vaccinations. Neither is lupus. Nor any other that I can think of . And attempts to characterize autism as an autoimmune disease have been blown out of the water. It has a heavy genetic component which is very difficult for many to accept. It also appears to be "growing" because more symptoms are rightly or wrongly being swept in under its name.

Those who foolishly wihhold vaccinations from their children do not deserve praise.

Number 4 is just perpetuating a misunderstanding of the very successful vaccination programs that we have in the U.S.

In, it is Not without risk but the reduction in the occurrence of many terrible diseases easily proves that we are on the right track.

People like Kennedy and Ginny McCarthy are causing quite a bit of damage.

This pediatrician has written some v. interesting articles, available by clicking on his name at the top of this one.

Here is one vaccine he can vouch for himself:

Because of the rotavirus vaccine, millions of children have been spared a really lousy illness, and our country has saved hundreds of millions of health-care dollars. This new study joins the growing body of evidence that shows how overwhelmingly beneficial vaccinations have been to our country and the world. In the case of rotavirus, it’s a benefit I’ve been lucky enough to see with my own two eyes.

http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2014/06/12/the-1-billion-reason-to-vaccinate.html

This is the end of his article on rotavirus, the serious effects it has on children, and the massive changes that the vaccine has brought. Less suffering for kids, lower costs for hospital visits. As he says, there is a small risk, but only a few in 100,000? He believes the reward justifies it.

I too am old enough to remember polio epidemics and the terror it held for parents all summer long.

Hard measles kept children sick and in dark rooms for two weeks. Families got quarantined when they had scarlet fever, etc.

I have a nurse acquaintence who decries vaccines; she of all people should know better, but she has a fabulous immune system and doesn´t need vaccines (or has benefited from the herd immunity that the rest of us have provided for her).

My wife had polio back in 1941 when she was just an infant. The lasting effects have been that here right foot is 2 sizes small that her left and her left leg is smaller. She was lucky just to survive. And she wore a brace on her right leg up to and thru high school. When a polio vaccine WAS created, she didn´t think she had to take the vaccine since she had already had polio. She tells me that she was stunned when her doctor told her that there were/are several viruses that can cause polio and yes, she needed the vaccines. She took them. Now, as we are entering out late years (she in now 74) she suffered a broken hip (and wouldn´t you know it was her right hip) that required two operations to set it right. Now her right leg is 1/2 inch shorter than the left. And she has to wear an orthotic brace on that leg and she is barely able to walk. When we go out, I have to assist her to the car and I put her in a wheel chair when we get to where we are going. So, anyone that goes around the country yapping about how vaccines are just soooo bad for someone should have is/her mouth taped shut. Permanently. Especially and of the Kennedys.

Though I am not antivirus, I have to urge caution. We are vaccinating very young babies with multiple vaccinations at 3 month intervals during their first year.

I have told my story of my two youngest children having a SEVERE reaction to the pertusis vaccination, screaming and screaming and screaming for hours and hours and hours!! I heard of another mother who´s daughter had a similar reaction. I did not allow them to have it again. The other mother did and her daughter was severely damaged being retarded for the rest of her life. Vaccinations are not candy, they should be handled carefully.

this is not the place for a detailed discussion on the propriety of vaccination. On both sides are individuals that believe their position is correct without any significant research on their behalf. It is not a settled question in the scientific community. There are many practitioners and pharmaceutical companies making a great deal of money on the practice so that will influence their positions. Remember the medical professions used to promote the relaxing effects of smoking in advertising. Our health care establishment is a history of successes and failures. Everyone should do their own research and draw their own conclusions.

I am extremely skeptical of the medical establishment. Their promotion of statins and low-fat diets are just two examples of where they just plain get it wrong. The scientific community is no better with their AGW nonsense. So, perhaps a bit of skepticism is in order.

That being said, parents have to consider the risk benefit ratio previously mentioned. It does seem to overwhelmingly support vaccinations but, again, caution is in order.

Posted By: StormCnter- 10/1/2014 1:45:46 PM     Post Reply
Yesterdays’ big roundup of the outlook for the GOP in the Congressional races spurred a predictable amount of “I’m staying home, the GOP is a bunch of sellouts, I’ll start voting again when the party stands for principle and nominates some true conservatives” responses. You may have seen my reaction here. On to the gubernatorial races… Let’s begin with the states where Democrats said they would be competitive… and they just aren’t. Wendy Davis is not going to derail Greg Abbott in Texas; she’s probably going to have the biggest hype-to-performance ratio of this cycle. Vincent Sheheen finished surprisingly close in 2010

The Obama administration is reportedly considering an executive action that could protect illegal immigrants convicted of serious vehicle-related offenses, including drunk driving, from deportation as they’d normally be subject to under immigration law. The most sweeping piece of executive action President Obama has considered regarding immigration policy would offer effectively legal status and work authorization to some millions of illegal immigrants, but there are other executive actions the administration has considered instead of or in addition to that measure. One of those possibilities, described in a report by the

The Department of Health and Human Services cannot legally bail out the insurance industry for excessive losses through President Obama´s health care law unless the U.S. Congress approves language allowing the administration to do so, according to a legal opinion released on Tuesday by the Government Accountability Office. The ruling could end up provoking a showdown between the White House and Congressional Republicans over Obamacare that has the potential to affect health insurance premiums. At issue is the "risk corridors" program, which aims to stabilize the insurance market on the new health insurance exchanges

The Democrats’ biggest worry heading toward November is Obama’s fall from grace with his base. This could make things even worse for them than currently expected. Democrats’ only hope to offset Republicans’ anticipated midterm surge is their base’s high turnout. However, Obama’s deep drop with his strongest supporters seriously calls this hope into question. Democrats know they will lose seats in November. The only question is: How many? At best, they hope to hang on to the Senate by a hair. Losses for the party holding the presidency are nothing new. Simply, it happens because the presidential candidate, who brought in sufficient

WASHINGTON — The Senate’s minority whip is confident about Republicans being the majority in the 114th Congress — if conservatives can set aside differences and work to combat the massive influx of donor cash that has Democratic campaigns ahead in the money race. Only in the majority, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) stresses, can conservatives make headway on tamping down overregulation, repealing and replacing Obamacare, securing the “chaotic” border, getting Keystone XL moving, and bringing civilized debate back to the upper chamber. And only by realizing the gravity of the battle for November, he argues, can Republicans relegate Harry Reid (D-Nev.)

The Obama administration found itself scrambling on Tuesday to defend President Barack Obama for his lackluster 42% attendance record on daily intelligence briefings, a finding from a new report issued by the non-partisan Government Accountability Institute (GAI). When asked about the GAI revelation on Fox News, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki appeared flustered and unprepared. "Well, I have no validation of those statistics," said Psaki.

O’Donnell refuses to wear an earpiece to stay in contact with producers while the live show is airing, so she had no clue it was time to stop talking.
