Is Trump’s Investigation of Vaccine-Dangers Dead?

Wiki

US vaccine policy will be heavily influenced by two new Trump appointees, Scott Gottlieb, head of the FDA, and Dr. Brenda Fitzgerald, head of the CDC. Both have declared that anti-vaccine arguments have been debunked. Trump supporters are stunned, but hold to the belief that he is merely showing that he is currently neutral in the debate before launching an investigation and then coming down hard against mandatory vaccines. We shall see. –GEG

Trump has made two key appointments in the area of childhood vaccination. The first was Scott Gottlieb, the director of the FDA. What does Gottlieb have to say?

From fiercepharma.com: “…antivaccine activists were disappointed with Trump’s appointment for FDA head, Scott Gottlieb, who has said any theories of a link between vaccines and autism have been ‘thoroughly debunked’.”

Trump’s second key appointment has now been revealed. Dr. Brenda Fitzgerald takes over as the head of the CDC.

Georgia Department of Public Health: “’Immunizations are the best way to protect infants and children from childhood diseases, like whooping cough and measles that can be life-threatening at young ages’,” said Brenda Fitzgerald, M.D., commissioner of the Georgia Department of Public Health [before her appointment to lead the CDC]. “It is critical for parents to talk to their child’s doctor to ensure they are up-to-date on immunizations, because no child should have to suffer a vaccine-preventable illness’.”

In 2014, Dr. Fitzgerald wrote an op-ed in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution: “I’ve heard all the arguments against vaccination. All have been debunked…”

Is Trump, who has declared he believes there is a link between vaccination and autism, playing a secret game? Is he giving his new appointees enough rope to hang themselves, before he moves in and empowers an independent panel to investigate vaccine-dangers?

We’ll see. However, if other key appointees Trump has moved into important slots in his administration are any indication—with their leaking, their out of school statements, their former employment at Goldman Sachs, their bias in favor of extending American Empire and policing the planet—the whole issue of vaccination could be off the table.

Perhaps someone should ask questions about the ID2020 programme, or at least make people aware of it. The UN needs vaccines for a very specific purpose. Banks, Microsoft, Johnson & Johnson, the IMF, the World bank and many others are working together to make the ID2020 project reality. ID2020 is a global Digital Financial Identity in the cloud. By 2020 they want the project up and running. By 2030, every global citizen should have this ID number. So why the vaccines? In their documents, they mention vaccines as their so-called Point of Entry: a the moment when a biometric ID… Read more »
