The U.S. Centers For Disease Control – A History of Corruption

-by Paul Fassa
Health Impact News

The recent controversy over the documentary “Vaxxed: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe,” despite being attacked by so many who haven’t seen it, is bringing public attention to real life episodes of vaccine damaged children and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) whistleblower Dr. William Thompson’s attempt to reveal fraud in the CDC.

But this accurate CDC episode reveals only one episode of hiding data to deal disinformation publicly that doesn’t support vaccine safety. There have been several other vaccine report cover-ups and other types of fraudulent activity in addition to the Dr. Thompson whistleblower episode.

They all support the need to dismantle the bloated budgetary expanse of CDC headquarters and activities. The CDC’s financial waste was investigated in great detail by Senator Tom Coburn in 2007, unfortunately nothing substantial came of his work. The CDC keeps demanding and getting more funding.

We’ll start from the most recent discovery of lies and cover-ups and work back chronologically to earlier episodes of CDC outright blatant deception and fraud that serve to protect various industries instead of the people that are harmed by pharmaceutical interventions, especially vaccines.

The CDC SPIDER and Its Current Complaint

SPIDER is the acronym for Scientists Preserving Integrity, Diligence and Ethics in Research. This is a group of scientists that remains anonymous within the CDC. In late August, 2016, CDC SPIDER managed to send a letter to a senior management official, Carmen S. Villar, Chief of Staff in the CDC Office of the Director, with this opening:

We are a group of scientists at CDC that are very concerned about the current state of ethics at our agency. It appears that our mission is being influenced and shaped by outside parties and rogue interests. … it is becoming the norm and not the rare exception.  Some senior management officials at CDC are clearly aware and even condone these behaviors. Others see it and turn the other way.  Some staff are intimidated and pressed to do things they know are not right.

(…)

We would like to see high ethical standards and thoughtful, responsible management restored at CDC.  We are asking that you do your part to help clean up this house! (Source)

The complete letter cites specific incidents of wrongdoing, wrong priorities, misappropriation of funds, cover-ups, and refusals to release Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) documents requested by Congressional hearings into CDC matters. Interestingly, none of their complaints directly relate to vaccine matters, proving that the CDC is a self-serving nest of corruption with all matters involving health. Here’s the complete SPIDER letter.

Former Merck Scientists File Lawsuit for Mumps Vaccine Fraud

This may seem off topic, but there’s a strong link between Merck and the CDC, which will become more obvious in this article. First of all, the CDC should have discovered the object of this lawsuit before it was filed. It involves the mumps vaccine that is part of the MMR (mumps, measles, rubella) vaccine. Several reports of mumps outbreaks throughout the nation among populations with over 90 percent vaccinated against it circa 2008 and beyond should have been red flags that demanded reviews of Merck’s own studies proving 95 percent efficacy. (Source)

Stephen Krahling and Joan Wlochowski were Merck virologists who claim in their now unsealed “false claims act” complaint that they “witnessed firsthand the improper testing and data falsification in which Merck engaged to artificially inflate the vaccine’s efficacy findings.”

That was done to create the illusion of 95 percent efficacy and maintain Merck’s licensing as the sole distributor of mumps vaccines, which became part of the MMR. In other words, they cheated to maintain a monopoly on the vaccine.

Krahling and Wlochowski claimed Merck’s scheme caused the United States to pay “hundreds of millions of dollars for a vaccine that does not provide adequate immunization.” Interestingly, the CDC has a large budget for purchasing vaccines, which it is petitioning to expand. (Source)

An Alabama medical group, Chatom Primary Care, has since filed a lawsuit against Merck based on the evidence stated in the Krahling – Wlochowski complaint. It seems Chatom bought their share of MMRs and now they know they’ve been scammed.

As of now, there are no updates on either the complaint or the lawsuit. Apparently, in addition to how slow court actions can be, Merck has been hedging on submitting documents requested by plaintiffs’ attornies. This tactic had been used by the CDC to resist Brian Hooker’s document requests all along.

Oh Julie, Where Art Thou?

The former head of the CDC during which the Dr. Thompson affair occurred was Dr. Julie Gerberding. She is now the head of Merck’s vaccine department with a $2.5 million annual salary while holding a considerable amount of Merck stock, 31,985 shares valued at about $2 million, after selling 38,368 of her shares in Merck stock for $2,340,064.32.

When Julie took over the CDC, she reportedly reorganized CDC structure, forcing several to leave. Many of the replacements she chose for those leaving or announcing their resignations were vaccine industry connected. (Source)

This begs the question, when did Julie start purchasing Merck stocks for her portfolio and how much was in her possession while she was head of the CDC from 2002 to 2009 when Merck’s Gardasil hit the market? This was a blatant conflict of interest.

Here’s the rub that creates an odor rising even higher up. Gerberding was fired from the CDC by president Obama in 2009. Her salary then was $250,000. Then she wound up with her $2.5 million salary at Merck as vice-president of its vaccine division within a month after her firing.

During her reign, the CDC accelerated its push for more vaccinations with its streamlined structure. This structure exists today and has expanded the vaccination push even further, so she wasn’t fired for cranking up the nation’s vaccine push that exists today.

The CDC’s Whistleblower Emerged Without Public Fanfare

Vaxxed,” the movie, is all about CDC corruption with vaccine safety and the suffering it has caused, thanks to the emergence of CDC whistleblower Dr. William Thompson in 2014 and phone conversations recorded by Brian Hooker, Ph.D.

Brian Hooker had made an impact with the CDC over the years with his constant FOI requests for documents (usually denied) to prove his case against the CDC. Mr. Hooker’s son, now in his late teens, is severely autistic after being vaccinated as a young child. Ironically, Dr. Thompson actually reached out to contact Ph.D. scientist Dr. Hooker.

The vaccine involved in this cover-up scandal is Merck’s MMR. And the person who directed Vaxxed was Dr. Andrew Wakefield, who has been seriously libeled for a clinical report that suggested the MMR be separated into individual vaccines and injected with time in between visits. Very few know the reality of this unjust situation. (Source)

Prior to Vaxxed, only those who frequent sites such as Health Impact News even knew of Dr. Thompson and the documented proof he had to report CDC fraud on a large 2004 autism study of Atlanta children who were vaccinated with the MMR vaccine.

Parts of that study that demonstrated a connection of MMR vaccines to autism were literally thrown away into a garbage can by four CDC scientists. And one of them was Dr. Thompson himself, who kept copies of the originals and retained the data on his computer hard drive to cover his involvement at a later date.

The four scientists were supervised and monitored by CDC higher ups, including Dr. Julie Gerberding who was head of the CDC at the time. Dr. Thompson had appealed to Dr. Gerberding directly by email with his concerns as the destruction of incriminating evidence was underway, only to be rebuffed for not going through proper channels to voice his concerns.

Dr. Colleen Boyle was also senior to Dr. Thompson at the time and had to be aware not only of what he had blown the whistle on, but of other cover-ups initiated by the CDC prior. She and her colleagues perjured themselves in this 2012 congressional hearing.

When Dr. Thompson was deemed a risk for leaking the incident and excluded from the upcoming CDC testimony on vaccine safety to the NIH (National Institutes of Health), this allowed other CDC officials to lie as directed.

Dr. Thompson handed over document copies to Brian Hooker and apologized to Dr. Andrew Wakefield for indirectly contributing to his problems from medical “authority” with the MMR Atlanta study cover-up. Dr. Thompson’s attorney filed for whistleblower protection and President Obama’s office granted it in 2015.

Dr. Thompson then made more copies of the documents that he and his colleagues had thrown out and forwarded them to Florida federal congressman Rep. Bill Posey. Congressman Posey appealed to the House of Representatives twice for a congressional investigation of the CDC based on Dr. Thompson’s allegations. Nothing ever happened. Posey’s pleas were ignored.

Remember the 2008-9 Swine Flu Pandemic?

The levels of population infection from infectious disease ranges from outbreak to epidemic to pandemic. A pandemic is called when nearly half a given population is infected with a given disease over a large area, often worldwide.

An unusually intrepid mainstream journalist and CBS news producer, Sharyl Attkisson wanted to probe the actual number of cases of swine flu in the USA alone. She and her crew went to the CDC to gain documentation but were blocked. So they went to all the individual states’ medical boards and discovered that there were very few actual swine flu cases determined by isolating the H1N1 virus…
