The Criminal CDC

Randall Schultz

‚??Government is not compassion. It is killing, beating, and hanging‚?? -- 
Ludwig von Mises ‚??What government does best is break both of your legs and give you 
a pair of crutches and says, see, if it wasn't for the government, you would 
not be able to walk‚?? -- Harry Browne The Center for Disease Control is just 
another agency in a long list which exemplifies that the state is nothing more 
than organized crime. Yet, only the state can engage in such overt criminal 
activity and make the audacious claim that it is there to protect the same ones 
that it victimizes! For the benefit of the readers, it is necessary that I 
provide a brief synopsis of our family's particular situation and how our son, 
like countless others, has been sacrificed on the altar of the medical deities, 
who are protected by the CDC. 

Our seven year old son, Gavin, is autistic. I wrote about this in my STR 
article called The Autism Epidemic. Our family has been immersed in the Autism 
community for approximately five years now. It is a way of life that is 
incredibly demanding. Not only are there the daily tasks involved with caring for a 
child in the Autism Spectrum, but there is a ton of extra baggage which 
accompanies this journey. For example, there are those out there who seem to think that 
the parents of an Autistic child are somehow special and gifted. 

That is to say, we have some sort of supernatural powers that allows us to 
cope with a special needs child better than any other mere mortal. Next, we have 
that category of ‚??experts‚??, who accuse us of being ‚??desperate‚?? because we 
seek alternative treatments for our child. We also encounter the naysayers. 
These are the ones who will never be convinced of the mercury-autism link, no 
matter how much evidence we produce. As parents, we find ourselves spending some 
effort trying to address much of this ignorance. That brings us to the CDC. 
They just don't know what to do with us desperate parents. Unfortunately, for 
the CDC, some of these desperate parents just happen to have some good 
credentials. This makes all of the CDC's damage control activity even less credible. 
One of these parents is Dr. Jeff Bradstreet. He is on the staff of the ICDRC in 
Florida. My wife and I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Bradstreet informally 
last year. It was a group of us so called desperate parents who spent a couple 
of hours conversing with one of the most intelligent, scientific minds that I 
have ever met. 

The problem that the CDC has with Dr. Bradstreet and many others in his 
position is that they cannot be bought off with perks from the pharmaceutical 
companies. Because, that is what the CDC is all about. The CDC is nothing more than 
a gang of mobsters running a protection racket for the AMA, the big 
pharmaceutical companies and anyone else that they claim to regulate. Those libertarian 
minded folks got it right again when they have so succinctly stated that the 
purpose of regulations is to benefit the regulated. 

Now, let's look at devil in the details of this CDC coverup of mercury damage 
and how it impacts the Autism community. This past week, there was a Power of 
Truth rally in the district of criminals, I mean, Washington, D.C. I got 
about halfway through the photos and I broke down. When I saw many of the faces of 
the parents and the children, it sort of reminded me of the civilian 
casualties brought on by any war. To an outsider, these faces may be no different than 
anyone that you would pass by on the street. But to those of us on the 
inside, we understand the hurt that these parents feel and the frustration that they 
suffer when they attempt to redress their grievances. 

There have been many similar rallies like this one dealing with Autism. I 
even attended one last year at our state capitol. Most of these rallies have to 
do with raising Autism awareness or begging the bureaucrats for more funding 
for Autism treatment. But, the Power of Truth rally appeared to be different. On 
the several websites which displayed the photos from the rally, it can be 
seen that many of the signs displayed had to do with mercury and the damage that 
it causes. These folks are rubbing some salt into the CDC's wounds! After all, 
wasn't it the CDC who keeps repeating the mantra that there is no causal link 
between the mercury in vaccines and the Autism epidemic? 

The CDC claims that there is no scientific evidence to back up this claim. 
The very first study that the CDC did indicated that there was a link. They even 
said so in their own internal memo. This was well documented in the Thief in 
the Night which can be ordered from Human Kind Productions. What's going on 
with our watchdogs in the CDC? The answer lies in understanding the nature of 
the state and in particular, the facade that the CDC puts on in public. A good 
example can be found in a little blurb which just appeared in our local 
newspaper. This is the third time that our son has had coverage in the Racine Journal 
Times. What is interesting to note is the rhetoric that the CDC engages in. 
Please be aware that every expert quoted in the CDC response is a government 

These puppets are going to say exactly what they are told to say! Also, it is 
not just what they said, but what they did not say. There is not one 
reference made by these whores about the damage caused by the mercury in the vaccines. 
This is all a distraction maneuver. The responses talk about the presence of 
heavy metals in environmental pollutants and that's it. My theory for this is 
that most readers would be able to make a mental connection between 
environmental pollution and illness. This senseless blather will then take the focus off 
of the true culprits ‚?? the CDC and companies that they protect, like Eli 
Lilly, who developed the preservative Thimerosal. Thimerosal is about 50% ethyl 
mercury and can still be found in many vaccines.. Here is another observation 
about the manner in which the CDC conducts itself publicly. They magically seem 
to appear out of thin air just at the right time. 

This is all by design. Keeping in mind that damage control or covering their 
backside is in the very nature of this beast, the CDC lurks about in the 
shadows and waits for the opportune moment to maximize their public relations 
efforts. They also like to employ lookouts or scouts. This has been noticed quite 
frequently by those attend the numerous scientific based Autism treatment 
conferences. The CDC likes to have their finger on the pulse of the Autism 
community. They need to do this so that they can put their own spin on the latest 
developments and scientific research. One particular incident comes to mind with 
the end results not being quite what the CDC expected. Last year, the CDC 
invited themselves to what was called an Autism One conference. When the CDC 
representatives took the stage, they were booed and jeered by the participants. In 
fact, the ruckus was so bad, that the poor CDC clowns were escorted off of the 
stage and out the door by security.

 I believe that the CDC reps were treated rather kindly by the crowd. I would 
have thought that they were much more deserving to be the targets of rotten 
garbage and animal dung than mere verbal assaults. On June 7-8, 2000, in 
Norcross, Georgia, the CDC gathered some of their brain trust together for what is 
now known as the ‚??Simpsonwood meeting‚??. This is just another example of the 
CDC knowing of the Autism-mercury link, bringing those concerns forward in a 
secret meeting, but then publicly denying that such a link exists. 

Now, the CDC tells us that they need another two years to do some more 
studies. Meanwhile, those of us parents with Autistic children are supposed to sit 
on our hands and wait with baited breath for the CDC to come up with an 
‚??official‚?? explanation as to why our children, who were on a path to normal 
development, suddenly began to regress at approximately age two. The sad irony of all 
of this is that the parents are expected to put their faith in these experts 
who claim to be so scientific. So far, their explanations make them appear to be 
dumber than a box of rocks. Many of us in the autism community are fully 
aware that the CDC has been talking to us out of both sides of their mouth for 
several years now. 

There is a simple analogy to apply to this whole situation to prove that the 
CDC does indeed act in a criminal manner. Let‚??s say that you are walking down 
a dark alley at night. You hear the cries of what sounds like a young child in 
distress. You quickly run in the direction of the cries. As you go around the 
corner of a building, you see a thug with a baseball bat raised in the air. 
You notice the child huddled in a ball. As you get nearer, you say to the 
assailant, ‚??hey buddy ‚?? if you get me 100 bucks, I promise not to turn you in to 
the police. Not only that, but I know the way out of this dark alley where no 
one will notice us and I‚??ll dispose of that bloodied bat for you.‚?? 

Now, because you have aided in this criminal‚??s escape and disposed of the 
evidence of the crime, you are just as guilty as he is. Not only that, you have 
also turned your back on the victim of this crime and have not given any aid 
and comfort. That is exactly what the CDC has done with the mercury in the 
vaccines and the damage that it has caused. They have stood by and watched the 
Autism rate skyrocket in the past ten years. They have seen the evidence come 
pouring in that the Thimerosal was causing neurological damage in young children. 
They have placed their stool pigeons in various Autism-related conferences so 
that they could suppress true scientific research and replace it with their 
junk science. They have had their agents stand mute in congressional hearings 
while Representative Dan Burton demanded straight answers from them. They have 
deflected and absorbed the energies of well meaning Autism advocacy groups. 
They have done all of this with full knowledge of the consequences of their 

These consequences are the lost opportunities for the damaged children and 
the insurmountable burden placed upon the parents of these precious little ones. 
The CDC has engaged in this disgusting coverup so that they can keep 
themselves looking squeaky clean and so that their cohorts in crime at Eli Lilly (and 
other pharmaceutical companies) can be the recipients of filthy lucre. The CDC 
has shown that they are no better than the common street thug who would beat 
a helpless child in a dark alley and leave them to die.
