P.G. King and G.S. Goldman quotes
Thus, the real question is when are vaccine apologists going to cease raising questions that have been answered and start admitting that Thimerosal-containing vaccines have mercury poisoned and are continuing to mercury-poison our children and ourselves to the point that some children and some adults are sub-acutely mercury poisoned and exhibit those symptoms that are used to in the diagnosis of a wide variety of neurodevelopmental (e.g., the autistic disorder, pervasive developmental disorder– not otherwise specified [PDD-NOS], Asperger’s, attention deficit disorder [ADD] and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder [ADHD]) and other disorders (asthma, diabetes, obesity, multiple sclerosis (MS), and food allergies) in our children, and, for those old enough to miss the prenatal and early childhood Thimerosal-poisoning, “dementias” (e.g., Alzheimer’s) in ourselves.

Such marketing coincidences (Thimerosal in/Calomel out) seem to be events orchestrated by those who also stood to gain from the continuing the sub-acute mercury-poisoning of babies, which increases not only the short-term medical customer base in the affected children but also, because it causes many of them to develop life-long “chronic” diseases, increases the number of times these customers will need to be seen, treated, and, in most cases, prescribed medicines.

Factually, those who have and are investigating the interactions among government agencies, elected officials, health officials, academics, the vaccine manufactures, their consultants, and those who continue to defend the use of Thimerosal as a preservative without the requisite proof of safety have determined that there is clear evidence of prior and continuing collusion among those parties to directly or indirectly violate applicable federal laws (regulations) and statutes that place an absolute, non-dischargeable duty upon the vaccine makers to prove that the Thimerosal used as a preservative is safe to the legal standard minimum.

To the extent that this collusion exists, it appears to this reviewer that all those involved are knowingly participating in a racket and may, therefore, be subject to the applicable criminal provisions of the RICO (Racketeering, Influencing, and Corrupt Organizations) statutes as set forth in 18 U.S.C.A. Sec 1961 et seq. Key realities about autism, vaccines, vaccine-injury compensation, Thimerosal, and autism-related research----Gary S. Goldman, Ph.D & P.G. King PhD
Fifth, with respect to the myth’s claim, “by 2002 no new
childhood vaccines with Thimerosal were being sold in the
U.S.,” this is also false because, among other Thimerosal-containing
vaccines that could be given to children in 2002, the
Thimerosal-preserved influenza vaccine, which, by its nature, is
a new vaccine every year, was effectively knowingly added to
the recommended vaccination schedule for pregnant women as
well as to the recommended childhood vaccination schedule in
April of 200228 at a time when all doses of the influenza vaccine
approved for “healthy children aged 6–23 months” were
Sixth, compounding the harm, in April of 2002, the CDC’s recommendation that the Thimerosal-preserved influenza vaccine be given to pregnant women who would be in their second and third trimesters of their pregnancies during the influenza season, thereby knowingly recommending the Thimerosal and mercury poisoning the developing child in utero when the risk of harm is even greater than it is postpartum and the results published in 197729 clearly found that Thimerosal-preserved influ vaccines that were given to pregnant women significantly increased (with a hospital-standardized relative risk of 2.0 or higher) their children’s risk of serious birth defects (cleft palate [RR = 7.1], microcephaly [RR = 2.3], and pyloric stenosis [RR = 2.0]).

Attempts by independent researchers to obtain the underlying
data sets from the original authors in the epidemiological
studies touted by the CDC and other vaccine apologists (except the
2004 Ip et al. study) as supporting the claims of “no
link” have been repeatedly rebuffed. Interestingly, a November
2007 paper by Desoto and Hitlan, entitled Blood Levels of Mercury
Are Related to a Diagnosis of Autism: A Reanalysis of an
Important Data Set, independently reviewed the basis data from
the previously published Ip et al. epidemiology study reporting
no evidence of a link between the blood levels of mercury and
autism. The reanalysis, with which the authors of the original
epidemiological article agreed, found that the original article’s
inaccurate conclusions were based on a significant calculation
error and a less-than-appropriate choice of t-tail statistical test.
Thus, no independent analysis has been able to confirm the validity, or lack thereof, of the findings reported in the studies upon which the 2004 IOM committee relied. In the case of the key U.S. study by Verstraeten et al., CDC officials have claimed that the original data sets have been “lost.” Key realities about autism, vaccines, vaccine-injury compensation, Thimerosal, and autism-related research----Gary S.

Apparently, since compensation has not yet been awarded, the Poling case has not yet been added to the “Adjudications” table. A CBS News investigation uncovered at least nine other cases dating back to 1990, where records show the court ordered the government compensate families whose children developed autism or autistic-like symptoms.
These cases included toddlers who had been called “very smart” and “impressed” doctors with their “intelligence and curiosity” until their vaccinations. Based on an on-line report,8 those nine cases were:
In some of these cases (e.g., Lassiter), the government actually attempted to use the child’s autism diagnosis as a reason to deny compensation for the child.

Factually, Congress established the NVICP on November
14, 1986 (Pub. L. 99-660), because the federal government,
instead of nationalizing the production of vaccines as the public
health statutes in Title 42 of the U.S. Code permit, gave in to
the vaccine makers’ demands for protection from being directly
sued for the harm that their vaccines, principally the DTwP
vaccines and some lots of the polio vaccines, were causing to
some who were vaccinated, rather than forcing the vaccine
makers to either: a) improve the safety of their vaccines or b)
turn over the manufacture of and facilities for the making of
vaccines to the federal government.
In return for the legal protections afforded to the vaccine makers, among other things:
Almost immediately after the NVICP was enacted, both the
Congress, driven by its own federal interests and special interests,
and those who were responsible for administering the
NVICP systems and for overseeing the licensing and approval
of vaccines, driven by similar forces, began to modify the statutes
and the regulations and policies required to implement the
NVICP in ways that made the NVICP less fair, increasingly
adversarial, and less than rapid.
The first change (Pub. L. 100-203, title IV, Sec. 4303(d)(2)(B), Dec. 22, 1987, 101 Stat. 1330-222) repealed the provision for automatic cost-of-living adjustment from the NVICP by striking 42 U.S.C. Sec 300aa-18 which “provided for annual increases for inflation of compensation under subsections (a)(2) and (a)(4) of section 300aa-15 of this title and civil penalty under section 300aa-27(b) of this title” – making the compensation provided increasingly less fair for those injured and the civil penalties provided for those who break these laws less punitive.
Administratively, as the cases began to be heard, the government administrators, without even a public hearing, unilaterally removed several of the “automatic” compensable injury indications from the original vaccine injury tables set forth in 42 U.S.C. Sec. 300aa-14. Vaccine Injury Table – making the NVICP more adversarial.
Moreover, the lawyers of the U.S. Department of Justice who were assigned to represent the federal government as respondent in the vaccine injury cases, driven by the policies of their appointed administrators, became increasingly adversarial in contesting every aspect of these cases – making cases more adversarial and their administration anything but rapid.
Thus, as the backlog and the Autism Omnibus demonstrate, though the NVICP may have been “established to streamline the process for compensation for those who are injured due to vaccines (USDOJ 2007),” today’s NVICP is anything but streamlined.

With respect to the statement: “Pharmaceutical companies
will be reluctant to subject themselves to the liability of selling
vaccines if even the truth cannot protect them from lawsuits,”
consider these observations:
When the truth comes to light, and the vaccine makers are proven to have knowingly failed to prove their vaccines were safe as required by law and were knowingly distributing adulterated vaccines and other drugs, then, when the applicable criminal RICO statutes are invoked, as they should be, the federal government should:
Seize these vaccine makers and all their assets, and
Then operate these vaccine makers as not-for-profit firms where the profits are used to pay for the harm done until all claims are paid
In addition, the federal government should also appropriately prosecute all of those who participated in this racket (including government officials, health officials, and vaccine apologists).
As those who were engaged in, assisting, or a party to, this racket are convicted they should be permanently debarred from working in any capacity in any FDA-regulated industry or in the federal government, and, as restitution, in addition to any fines levied, all those persons convicted of actively participating in any aspect of this racket should be sentenced to tend to those institutionalized individuals who have been directly harmed by this racket for an appropriate number of years.

mercury poisoning has been and is a major causal factor
in those who have been diagnosed with an autism spectrum
disorder (ASD), as well as in several disorders and diseases
that, prior to 1970, were virtually non-existent in children (e.g.,
childhood asthma and type-II diabetes) or rare (an ASD, where
reported incidence rate estimates were on the order of 1 – 5 in
10,000), and have since become epidemic (occurring at a rate >1 in 1,000 children).
These now-epidemic childhood diseases include, but are not limited to: asthma, type-I and type-II diabetes, obesity, gastroenteritis, ulcerative colitis, leukemia, MS, severe food allergies, ADHD, ADD, and the ASDs, including autism, pervasive developmental disorder – not otherwise specified (PDD-NOS) and Asperger’s.
These are all childhood medical conditions where mercury poisoning has been shown to be an actual or a probable causal factor. Key realities about autism, vaccines, vaccine-injury compensation, Thimerosal, and autism-related research----Gary S. Goldman, Ph.D & P.G. King PhD
Thus, even today’s child can easily be exposed to 100 micrograms
of Thimerosal (50 micrograms of mercury) from vaccines
by 7 months of age. Moreover, because the developing child being exposed to a
50-microgram dose of Thimerosal in utero (from the mother’s
being given a Thimerosal-preserved flu shot) may weigh less
than 1% of the weight of full-term child, the potential for harm
may easily exceed that by the post-partum child by a factor
greater than 100.
............The CDC has recommended administering one of those Thimerosal-preserved vaccines, the Thimerosal-preserved influenza vaccine, for pregnant women and babies, federal officials have continued the knowing mercury poisoning of children and adults while touting the removal of Thimerosal as a preservative from most of the other early childhood vaccines and proclaiming these removals as if they were the removal of Thimerosal from all vaccines – classic examples of misdirection and deceit.

As most scientists know, statistics-based epidemiological studies cannot “contradict a link”; they can only assess the probability that there may be a link. Moreover, epidemiological studies, by their population-based nature, cannot generally find statistical significance when the effect (link) is confined to some small segment of that population.

Furthermore, the reference given in this misrepresentation, “(Brown 2006)” [“Brown MJ, Willis T, Omalu B, Leiker R. 2006. Deaths resulting from hypocalcemia after administration of edetate disodium: 2003-2005.Pediatrics. 118(2): e534-36”], is for a wrongful death case where the wrong form of a different chelating agent, “edetate disodium”, was administered to the patient, and an unapproved administration procedure, push IV chelation, was used to deliver this chelating agent. In this case, the death was caused by medical negligence and not by chelation per se. Thus, the reality is that there is clinical evidence of the efficacy of the chelation therapy used by the Geiers and no evidence that the chelation therapy used by the Geiers has been “occasional deaths.” Key realities about autism, vaccines, vaccine-injury compensation, Thimerosal, and autism-related research----Gary S.
