“Someone did perform safety studies the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) should have mandated be performed and vetted BEFORE numerous vaccines were released into the public sector for mass vaccinations.
“Lead investigator Laura Hewitson, PhD, probably dropped a bombshell when she and her colleagues completed a macaque monkey (primates) study of the very same vaccines given to children during 1994-1999, i.e., the Measles-Mumps-Rubella (MMR) vaccine and several Thimerosal mercury-containing vaccines injected into children during that time frame when the autism spectrum disorder skyrocketed.
“The results of that pilot study were published as a Research Paper in Acta Neurobiological Experimentals in 2010 and titled “Influence of pediatric vaccines on amydgala growth and opioid ligand binding in rhesus macaque infants: A pilot study.”  Even though there was alleged controversy revolving around Hewitson’s monkey studies, e.g., charges of conflicts of interest since she filed a claim with the vaccine court on behalf of her child,  the information generated needs to be revisited and duplicate studies need to be undertaken. Why haven’t they? Is there too much influence from vaccine makers not to do them? Parents need to make demands on the U.S. Congress to require such safety studies on monkeys be duplicated immediately, plus suspend all mandates on vaccinations until the study results are in. Did Dr Hewitson become another professional persona non-grata because she may have been on the right track?
“Congress needs to consider seriously the Hewitson, et al. report that stated:
“Vaccine-exposed and saline-injected control infants [monkeys] underwent MRI and PET imaging at approximately 4 and 6 months of age, representing two specific timeframes within the vaccination schedule. …
“These results suggest that maturational changes in amygdala volume and the binding capacity of [11C]DPN in the amygdala was significantly altered in infant macaques receiving the vaccine schedule.” 
It’s no secret among veterinarians that over-vaccination can cause problems in animals, including autoimmune diseases and cancer. Symptoms of autism, the “regressive” version of which is probably autoimmunity involving chronic brain inflammation and/or mercury poisoning in susceptible children (see my munchausen obstetrics article), have been seen in monkeys subjected to the typical american vaccination schedule for children.

It’s less common these days to hear a psychiatrist admit what is well known in psychiatric circles: that the “chemical imbalance” theory is just that, there is no empirical evidence or chemical test for any “imbalance” of signaling chemicals in the brain, and good reason to believe there is no such thing. This “theory” is driven by the pharmaceutical industry which has essentially annexed psychiatry as a marketing tool, forestalling the collapse of the “profession” which is heir to phrenology, a sibling of eugenics and a willing tool of totalitarian governments and domestic abusers everywhere.
Anyway, what used to be common knowledge periodically surfaces above the noise. Here’s a recent article:
“Taking a pill to treat depression is widely believed to work by reversing a chemical imbalance. But in this week’s Scrubbing Up health column, Dr Joanna Moncrieff, of the department of mental health sciences at University College London, says they actually put people into “drug-induced states”.
If you’ve seen a doctor about emotional problems some time over the past 20 years, you may have been told that you had a chemical imbalance, and that you needed tablets to correct it. It’s not just doctors that think this way, either. Magazines, newspapers, patients’ organisations and internet sites have all publicised the idea that conditions like depression, anxiety, schizophrenia and bipolar disorder can be treated by drugs that help to rectify an underlying brain problem.
“People with schizophrenia and other conditions are frequently told that they need to take psychiatric medication for the rest of their lives to stabilise their brain chemicals, just like a diabetic needs to take insulin. The trouble is there is little justification for this view of psychiatric drugs. …”
Don’t get me wrong. Altered states have their place. Hallucinogens probably kept me sane when I was a teenager in an abusive home. But like any tool drugs can be abused, especially when they become a habit, like psych drugs.
“Ellen Brown is a civil litigation attorney who has written 11 books on health and the politics of health, including the Web of Debt: The Shocking Truth About Our Money System (which focuses on the money and banking system itself), and Forbidden Medicine, which traces the suppression of natural health treatment back to the corrupting influences of our financial system.
“In the course of writing her books, Brown was asked to join the legal team of Jimmy Keller, an alternative cancer therapist in Tijuana, who was jailed for, as she puts it, “the alleged crime of representing that he had a high rate of cure for cancer.”
“He always showed the movie World Without Cancer to his patients, which is by Ed Griffin,” she says, “so I read the book World Without Cancer, and it linked the cancer industry—the cancer cartel, basically—with the banking cartel. It showed they had the same roots.
“It went back to the Rockefeller-Morgan cartel at the turn of the 20th century. Rockefeller, Morgan, and Carnegie supported drugs, funded the medical schools, and basically got the homeopathic schools shut down. (In the 19th century, the homeopathic schools were the leading health treatment.)
“… I realized in the course of that that if you wanted to get to crux of the problem, you had to deal with banking, because that was actually where they got their power. They got their power from the power to create money.”
“An Illinois beekeeper whose bee hives were stolen and allegedly destroyed by the Illinois Department of Agriculture has stirred up a hornet’s nest with his questions on why the state did this, and most importantly, what they did with his bees. The state claims the bees were destroyed because they were infected with a disease called foulbrood.
But when the 58-year apiary keeper had his hearing—three weeks after the removal of his bees without his knowledge—the state’s “evidence” had disappeared, leaving more questions than answers about the raid on the beekeeper’s hives.
“Some people, including the beekeeper, Terrence Ingram, suspect the raid has more to do with Ingram’s 15 years of research on Monsanto’s Roundup and his documented evidence that Roundup kills bees, than it does about any concerns about his hives.
“Interestingly, the state’s theft targeted the queen bee and hive he’d been using to conduct the research. …”
“Following revelations that the anti-Assad opposition is making up atrocity stories, the world is coming to the conclusion that Assad is not the black-handed devil that he has been made out to be by the cunning Western mainstream press.
“The motive of the NATO-armed rebels in accusing the Syrian government of mass murder is clear; it is to help the United States and its allies at the United Nations to gain a greater political leverage so it can shame Russia and China. But this trick has not achieved its diabolical purpose. Russia and China are standing firm and reaffirming their position that a NATO intervention is the wrong course to take. …
“The contradictions in U.S. foreign policy couldn’t be clearer than in Syria. The U.S. is supporting Jihadist terrorists and thereby putting to death the biggest fable in its war on terror mythology: Radical Islam is a threat to America and Western civilization. The absurdity of the media fables is too much to ignore. The collapsing 9/11 mythology and NATO’s war on terror consensus is irreversible. More people believe in flying unicorns than the official fable of 9/11. The U.S. government is not insulting the Syrian people or Assad by enlisting Jihadist terrorists to fight in its camp. It is insulting American soldiers who died fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan because they bought the lie that America was under attack from Jihadist terrorists. …
“Tony Cartalucci explains how Nawaf Fares, a defector from the Syrian government who is being celebrated by the West as a supporter of democracy, was behind the killing of U.S., British, and Iraqi troops in Iraq. In this case, the enemy of Washington’s enemy is Washington’s enemy. This is comedic gold and points to an epic disaster for Washington’s illegal regime change project in Syria. No playwright could come up with this stuff. It’s like God is playing a joke on America and humanity. I’m laughing, are you?
“Cartalucci sums up Fares’s absurd story and shatters his image as a defender of innocents, writing:
“Fares, a self-confessed terrorist who admits he organized death squads to fight and kill Americans and undoubtedly civilians in neighboring Iraq, has leveled a series of accusations with no evidence, to provide the maximum amount of demonization possible against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
He has left a “regime” he finds unbearable, which he claims without evidence was carrying out a terrorist bombing campaign against its own people, and who supported “Jihadi units” to fight its regional neighbors – to then join a militant organization that has demonstratively and admittedly carried out bombing campaigns against the Syrian people, consists of extremist mercenaries from abroad sent to destabilize and destroy his nation, and guilty, by HRW and the UN’s own admissions, of the same atrocities and horrors Fares has claimed he defected from the government over.”
“The great debate on the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President Kennedy is not between Conspiracy Theorists and Lone Nutters as expected, it is over the release of the remaining still secret records that the government refuses to open to the public.
“While all of the withheld records are scheduled to be released in 2017, the CIA and other agencies are expected to ask the President to continue to withhold them, possibly forever, or at least in our lifetime, and the President is expected to comply, unless he is convinced to release them now. …”

Back in the 80’s Amy Goodman frequently exposed the manipulations of US govt-funded NGO’s like the “national endowment for democracy” in places like nicaragua and haiti. Now she just regurgitates their talking points. Russia has them figured out though:
The US has used everything from journalists to insurance adjusters to “human rights activists” to gather intelligence, manipulate foreign elections and disseminate propaganda. Of course this endangers legitimate practitioners of these professions who are suspected of espionage but that doesn’t seem to bother the US state dept.
The major Western mainstream media outlets have been running a “shock and awe” propaganda offensive against the Syrian government of President Bashar Al Assad for nearly 16 months. The misinformation has been unrelenting, monolithic, unverified, one-sided and, frankly, increasingly preposterous.
With the suppression of mounting evidence that Western governments are waging a covert war of aggression in Syria, the Western public is right to treat the conventional media sources with skepticism and outright contempt. Such media are seen as “politicized” and “unreliable”, serving a naked imperialist agenda for Western regime change. In a word, they are damaged goods. This is where a segment of the so-called alternative media can play a valuable propaganda function for Western powers. Because such media are supposed to be independent, critical, non-corporate, the public tends to consider their reports as objective and unbiased. One such “alternative” news service is “Democracy Now” hosted by Amy Goodman. Goodman is seen as something of a campaigning critical journalist shedding the light of truth on the depredations of the US government, corporations and the Pentagon. But a closer look at what Goodman’s “Democracy Now” is reporting on Syria shows that the purported critical broadcaster has become a purveyor of Western government propaganda. While the mainstream media’s propaganda function is obvious to the informed public, Goodman’s “Democracy Now” plays a more subtle role. Camouflaged with the trappings of critical, independent journalism, “Democracy Now” serves to sow powerful seeds of misinformation in a way that the “compromised” mainstream media cannot. This misinformation from “Democracy Now” is valuable to the ruling elite because to many of its readers it is not seen as misinformation. …
