The Lancet retraction of vaccine autism paper condemned as Big Pharma conspiracy to discredit Dr. Wakefield
Posted: February 6th, 2010 by Militant Libertarian
When I saw The Lancet’s recent retraction of Dr. Wakefield’s famous paper linking vaccines to autism, I couldn’t help thinking back to 1989 when Fleischmann and Pons were widely attacked and discredit over their demonstration of cold fusion technology. These two brilliant physicists had accomplished the seemingly impossible: They had caused fusion to take place at low temperatures, producing both excess heat energy as well as the helium artifacts proving that low-energy nuclear reactions had taken place.
The conventional physics community went berserk. They attacked Fleischmann and Pons relentlessly, attempting to destroy their character and any scientific credibility they might have held. They paraded a gang of “hot fusion” scientists through the mainstream media, telling everyone it was “impossible” to create nuclear fusion at tabletop temperatures. Through a repetition of lies, they convinced the world that Fleischmann and Pons were frauds.
Hot fusion, you see, is big business. Big money. Billions of dollars have been thrown at hot fusion, and the careers and livelihoods of tens of thousands of people depend on it. By demonstrating that cold fusion really worked, Fleischmann and Pons were threatening an entire industry. That industry had no choice but to do everything possible to destroy the scientists. Truth be damned… this was all about politics and profits!
Fast forward 20 years and guess what? Cold fusion is being replicated in laboratories all around the world. Even the U.S. Navy is now deeply engaged in the research (http://www.naturalnews.com/025925_c…), and it is recreating cold fusion experiments on a routine basis.
Cold fusion, it turns out, is indeed quite real. Fleischmann and Pons were right. The conventional scientific community was wrong. And yet they got away with destroying the reputations of these scientists because the media bought their lies hook, line and sinker. To this day, supposed “intelligent” scientists and doctors still stupidly believe that cold fusion was a hoax.
Big Pharma destroys Dr. Wakefield
Today, the same tactics of disinformation and truth destruction are now being leveled against Dr. Wakefield, the courageous scientist who was the first to prove that vaccines were linked to autism. For the last twelve years, his research provided ammunition for opponents of mandatory vaccinations — people who were concerned about the safety of injecting synthetic chemicals and methyl mercury into the bodies of infants.
The truth was getting out and vaccine skeptics were winning the information war. The H1N1 vaccination campaign was a complete failure — 80% of Americans rejected the recent H1N1 vaccine, for example. Drug companies needed to shut down the opposition as quickly as possible and put a lid on any resistance to mass vaccinations. The whole future of profits for Big Pharma, after all, depends on the public accepting more and more vaccines for “preventive” medicine. This means you get vaccinated for all sorts of things that you don’t have and may never get. The vaccines are sold to people as a kind of chemical-based health insurance program.
To ensure the profitability of that future, Big Pharma needed to destroy Dr. Wakefield’s credibility. So they paraded a long list of pro-vaccine doctors and drug pushers in front of the media to accomplish essentially the same thing that was accomplished against Fleischmann and Pons in 1989 — the obliteration of their credibility in order to suppress the truth.
The truth is dangerous to Big Pharma
The truth is a dangerous thing. Especially when profits are at stake. The truth about vaccines would destroy an entire industry. That’s why the truth must not be allowed to appear in newspapers, magazines or medical journals. That’s why the truth is meticulously redacted from these publications and replaced by pro-pharma lies as a matter of course.
