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

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.


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.

On June 25, 2014, 19 year-old Brendan Tevlin hopped into his car to return home after spending the evening at a friend’s house. Minutes later, Ali Muhammad Brown approached the vehicle as it was stopped at a red light and fired ten rounds into the car, killing Brendan. Originally, the teen’s murder was labeled an attempted robbery, allowing the media to remain silent. Now, court documents have revealed that Brown’s motivation for killing Tevlin had less to do with thievery, and more to do with America’s pushback against Jihadist terrorism in the Middle East.

First Lady Michelle Obama has made healthy eating and exercise her signature issue. But, a recent study published by the Sage Journal found that her “elitist” advice actually “shames poor and middle class mothers.” The College Fix added that the study found that Michelle Obama’s healthy eating program is also sexist. It’s also sexist, the study’s authors suggest, noting that “intentionally or not, it places the burden of a healthy home-cooked meal on women.” Sage Journals published the study by North Carolina researchers Sarah Bowen, Sinikka Elliott and Joslyn Brenton.

Under the present arrangement the Scots have twice as many votes per head as the English – one to govern themselves, by electing members to the Scottish Parliament, and one to govern the English, by electing members to the Parliament of the United Kingdom. And while the English are more likely to vote Conservative, the Scots send only Labour members to Westminster – even if they don’t send them to Edinburgh.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s ongoing deployment of 1,000 National Guard troops along the Rio Grande may be helpful in his second try for the GOP presidential nomination in 2016. The move also continues a distinctively Texan balancing act on immigration that Perry has been maintaining for well over a decade. The question is whether Perry represents the future of his party on immigration — or whether his nuanced positions on the issue will again become a liability in national politics. “It takes a very skilled politician to come across as tough on border security while, at the same time, not

Former President George W. Bush put together a 48 member coalition for the Iraq War in 2003. 40 of those members supported military operations and 37 provided some number troops. In April 2003, the list was updated to include 49 countries, though it was reduced to 48 after Costa Rica objected to its inclusion. Of the 48 states on the list, three contributed troops to the invasion force (the United Kingdom, Australia and Poland). An additional 37 countries provided some number of troops to support military operations after the invasion was complete. Despite these numbers the liberal media continues to push the lie
