TTAV is experiencing heavy censorship on many social media channels since we’ve been targeted by the mainstream media sellouts, social media bullies, and political turncoats. Be sure to get the TRUTH by subscribing to our email list. It’s free.
CHD NOTE: In early May 2019, Politico Magazine published an article written by three of Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.’s relatives, criticizing his advocacy for safe vaccines. After numerous requests, Politico magazine has refused to publish his response.
Three of my Kennedy relatives recently published an article criticizing my advocacy for safe vaccines. Our contentious family dispute highlights the fierce national donnybrook over vaccinations that has divided communities and raised doubts about the Democratic Party’s commitment to some of its defining values: abhorrence of censorship, wariness toward excessive corporate power, support for free speech, religious freedom, and personal sovereignty over our bodies, and the rights of citizens (codified in the Nuremberg Code and other treaties to which we are signatories) to decline unwanted government-mandated medical interventions. The debate has also raised questions about the independence of our press and its role as a champion of free speech, and First Amendment rights as a bulwark against overreaching by government and corporations.
I love my family and sympathize with their anxieties when I call out government officials for corruption. The Kennedys have a long, close, and continuing relationship with public health agencies so it is understandably difficult for us to believe that powerful regulators would lie about vaccines. “All issues are simple,” the saw goes, “until you study them.”
I’ve arrived at my skepticism after 15 years spent researching and litigating this issue. I have watched financial conflicts and institutional self-interest transform key sectors of our public health bureaucracies into appendages of the very pharmaceutical companies that Congress charged them to regulate.
Multiple investigations by Congress and the HHS Inspector General have consistently found that an overwhelming majority of the FDA officials directly charged with licensing vaccines, and the CDC officials who effectively mandate them for children, have personal financial entanglements with vaccine manufacturers. These public servants are often shareholders in, grant recipients from, and paid consultants to vaccine manufacturers, and, occasionally, patent holders of the very vaccines they vote to approve. Those conflicts motivate them to recommend ever more vaccines with minimal support from evidence-based science.
The pharmaceutical industry also enforces policy discipline through agency budgets. FDA receives 45% of its annual budget from industry. The World Health Organization (WHO) gets roughly half its budget from private sources, including Pharma and its allied foundations. And CDC, frankly, is a vaccine company; it owns 56 vaccine patents and buys and distributes $4.6 billion in vaccines annually through the Vaccines for Children program, which is over 40% of its total budget. Further, Pharma directly funds, populates and controls dozens of CDC programs through the CDC foundation. A British Medical Journal editorial excoriates CDC’s sweetheart relationship with pharma quotes UCLA Professor of Medicine Jerome R. Hoffman “most of us were shocked to learn the CDC takes funding from industry… It is outrageous that industry is apparently allowed to punish the CDC if the agency conducts research that has potential to cut into profits.”
HHS partners with vaccine makers to develop, approve, recommend, and pass mandates for new products and then shares profits from vaccine sales. HHS employees can personally collect up to $150,000 annually in royalties for products they work on. For example, key HHS officials collect money on every sale of Merck’s controversial HPV vaccine Gardasil, which also yields tens of millions annually for the agency in patent royalties. Furthermore, under the 1986 Act that created the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, HHS is the defendant in Vaccine Court and is legally obligated to defend against any claim that a vaccine causes injury. Despite high hurdles for recovery, HHS pays out hundreds of millions of dollars annually (over $4 billion total) to Americans injured by vaccines. Hence, if HHS publishes any study acknowledging that a vaccine causes a harm, claimants can use that study against HHS in Vaccine Court. In June 2009, a high-level HHS official, Tom Insel, killed a $16 million-dollar budget item to study the relationship between vaccines and autism by the Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee. Insel argued that petitioners would use these studies against HHS in vaccine court.
Such conflicts are a formula for “agency capture” on steroids. “Instead of a regulator and a regulated industry, we now have a partnership,” says Dr. Michael Carome, a former HHS employee who is now the director of the advocacy group Public Citizen. Carome says that these financial entanglements have tilted HHS “away from a public health perspective to an industry-friendly perspective.”
In 1986, Congress—awash in Pharma money (the pharmaceutical industry is number one for both political contributions and lobbying spending over the past 20 years) enacted a law granting vaccine makers blanket immunity from liability for injuries caused by vaccines. If vaccines were as safe as my family members claim, would we need to give pharmaceutical companies immunity for the injuries they cause? The subsequent gold rush by pharmaceutical companies boosted the number of recommended inoculations from twelve shots of five vaccines in 1986 to 54 shots of 13 vaccines today. A billion-dollar sideline grew into the $50 billion vaccine industry behemoth.
Since vaccines are liability-free—and effectively compulsory to a captive market of 76 million children—there is meager market incentive for companies to make them safe. The public must rely on the moral scruples of Merck, GlaxoSmithKline, Sanofi, and Pfizer. But these companies have a long history of operating recklessly and dishonestly, even with products that they must market to the public and for which they can be sued for injuries. The four companies that make virtually all of the recommended vaccines are all convicted felons. Collectively they have paid over $35 billion since 2009 for defrauding regulators, lying to and bribing government officials and physicians, falsifying science, and leaving a trail of injuries and deaths from products they knew to be dangerous and sold under pretense of safety and efficacy.
Doesn’t it require a kind of cognitive dissonance to believe that vaccines are untainted by the greed, negligence, and corruption that bedevil every other pharmaceutical product?
No safety testing
Such concerns only deepen when one considers that, besides freedom from liability, vaccine makers enjoy another little-known lucrative loophole; vaccines are the only pharmaceutical or medical products that do not need to be rigorously safety tested. To win an FDA license, companies must safety test virtually every other drug for years in randomized comparisons against an inert placebo. Yet, not a single vaccine currently on the CDC schedule was tested against an inert placebo. Without placebo testing, regulators have no capacity to assess a medicine’s risks. During a January 2018 deposition, Dr. Stanley Plotkin, the world’s most influential vaccinologist, acknowledged that researches who try to ascertain vaccine safety without a placebo are in “La La land”. According to Dr. Drummond Rennie, Deputy Editor of the Journal of the American Medical Association, “It is the marketing department, not the science, that is driving the research.” It seems plain wrong to me that Democratic-controlled legislatures across the country are frantically passing coercive mandates for pharmaceutical products for which no one knows the risks.
Furthermore, safety testing, which typically requires five or more years for other medical products, often lasts only a few days with vaccines—not nearly long enough to spot cancers or chronic conditions like autoimmune disease (e.g., juvenile diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis), allergic illnesses (e.g., food allergies, allergic rhinitis, eczema, asthma), or neurological and neurodevelopmental injuries (e.g., ADD, ADHD, narcolepsy, epilepsy, seizure disorders, and autism). Manufacturers’ inserts accompanying every vial of mandated vaccines include warnings about these and over 400 other injuries including many serious immune, neurological, and chronic illnesses for which FDA suspects that vaccines may be the cause. Federal law requires that the package insert for each vaccine include “only those adverse events for which there is some basis to believe that there is a causal relationship between the drug and the occurrence of the adverse event.”
Many of these illnesses became epidemic in American children after 1986, coterminous with the exploding vaccine schedule. For American kids born in 1986, only 12.8% had chronic diseases. That number has grown to 54% among the vaccine generation (those born after 1986) in lockstep with the expanding schedule. Evidence including HHS’s own surveillance reports, manufacturers’ inserts, and peer-reviewed studies link all of these injuries to vaccines. However, the associations are not definitive because CDC has failed to conduct the necessary randomized studies to prove or disprove causation.
HHS has directed the Institute of Medicine (IOM, now the National Academy of Medicine) to oversee the CDC’s vaccine safety science. IOM has repeatedly rebuked the agency for failing to study whether vaccines are causing these epidemics. In my experience, vaccine proponents rarely cite specific peer-reviewed studies to support their assertions that all vaccines are safe, relying instead on appeals to authority; CDC, FDA, WHO, or the AAP. My relatives, for example, argue that vaccines are safe because WHO, HHS, CDC, and FDA say so. But HHS designated the IOM as the ultimate arbiter of vaccine safety. And IOM says that the existing scientific literature does not support these claims. Despite requests by the IOM, CDC has steadfastly refused to perform safety studies.
In total, three IOM reports (1991, 1994, and 2011/2012) investigated 231 adverse events associated with vaccines. For 34 conditions, IOM found that the evidence supported a causal connection between the vaccine and the adverse event. But for 184 adverse events, fully 80% of the conditions reviewed, the IOM found that HHS’s evidence was inadequate to accept or reject vaccine causation. How can our public health officials claim safety when there is no follow-up research on reported adverse events?
Autism and vaccines
Let’s drill down on bedrock dogma that science has thoroughly debunked any links between autism and vaccines. That assumption is so engrained that media ridicules anyone who questions this orthodoxy as a dangerous heretic. But, look for a moment, at the facts. In 1986, Congress specifically ordered CDC to determine if pertussis-containing vaccines (DTP, later DTaP) were causing autism. Then, as today, many parents with autistic children were claiming that vaccines were a cause of their child’s autism and DTP/DTaP vaccines were/are a popular suspect.
On its website, CDC declares that, “Vaccines don’t cause autism,” citing IOM’s comprehensive 2011/2012 literature review of vaccination safety science. However, the IOM study and the follow-up HHS study in 2014 both say that CDC has never performed a study to support CDC’s claim that DTaP does not cause autism. The same is true for Hep B, Hib, PCV 13, and IPV. The only vaccine actually studied with regard to autism is MMR, and a senior CDC scientist claims the CDC did find an increased rate of autism after MMR in the only MMR/autism study ever conducted by the CDC with American children. Moreover, HHS’s primary autism expert recently provided an affidavit to the DOJ explaining that vaccines can cause autism in some children.
Autism has grown from about 1 in 2,500 prior to 1986 to one in 36 among vaccine generation children today. Why are we content with the CDC’s claim that the exponential explosion of autism is a mystery? CDC spares no expense systematically tracking the source of 800 measles cases. But when asked about the cataclysmic epidemic of upwards of 68,000 new autism cases annually, CDC shrugs. Why are we not demanding answers? “CDC is paralyzed right now when it comes to anything to do with autism,” explains former senior vaccine safety scientist Dr. William Thompson, who is still a CDC employee. Thompson told Congressman Bill Posey under oath that CDC bigwigs ordered him to destroy data that showed a link between autism and vaccines and to publish a fraudulent study dismissing the link. Today, he is remorseful, “When I see a family with a child with autism, I feel great shame because I have been part of the problem.”
We are killing children
HHS has also ignored its statutory obligations to study vaccine injuries and improve vaccine safety. In 1986, Congress—recognizing that drug companies no longer had any incentive to make vaccines safe—ordered HHS to study vaccine injuries, work to improve vaccine safety, and report to Congress on its progress every two years. A year ago, I brought a lawsuit that forced HHS to admit that in 36 years it had never performed any of those critical studies.
Post-licensure vaccine safety surveillance is also in shambles. The CDC’s Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), to which doctors and patients may voluntarily report adverse vaccine events, received 58,381 reports in 2018, including 412 deaths, 1,237 permanent disabilities, and 4,217 hospitalizations. An HHS-funded review of VAERS concluded that “fewer than 1% of vaccine adverse events are reported” to VAERS. This suggests that there are a hundredfold more adverse vaccine events than are reported. The CDC has nonetheless refused to mandate or automate VAERS reporting.
On March 9, 2019, Dr. Peter Aaby issued a scathing rebuke to the world’s public health agencies for continuing to allow pharmaceutical companies to sell vaccines without proper safety testing. Dr. Aaby, who has authored over 300 peer-reviewed studies, is one of world’s foremost authorities on WHO’s African vaccine program and the winner of Denmark’s highest honor for health care research. Dr. Aaby was one of five co-authors of a 2017 study of the diphtheria tetanus, and pertussis (DTP) vaccine, the most widely used vaccine on earth, which found that children who received DTP had ten times the risk of dying compared to DTP-unvaccinated children. For thirty years, doctors, including Aaby, never noticed the danger because vaccinated children were succumbing to illnesses and infections apparently unrelated to the vaccine. It turns out that while the vaccine protected children from diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis, it so badly weakened their immune systems that they were dying in droves from unrelated infections. The researchers concluded: “The DTP vaccine may kill more children from other causes than it saves from diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis.” In March, an alarmed Aaby plead for a policy change, “Most of you think we know what our vaccines are doing. But we don’t…. We are killing children.”
The world’s most aggressive vaccine schedule has not given our country the world’s healthiest children. We now rank 35th in overall health outcomes—just behind Costa Rica, making the U.S., by most measures, including infant mortality, the sickest in the developed world. In addition to those 400 chronic diseases and injuries that FDA suspects may be vaccine related, the vaccine generation suffers unprecedented levels of anxiety and depression and behavioral disorders running the gamut from aggression to anorexia. Peer-reviewed animal and human studies have linked all these symptoms to vaccines. The present generation is the first in a century to lose I.Q., having suffered an extraordinary drop of seven points. Researchers concluded that some environmental cause is the trigger. In the U.S., SAT and, more recently, bar exam scores are plummeting. Could these declines be the outcome of injecting virtually every child with multiple doses of two of the world’s most potent neurotoxins—mercury and aluminum—in bolus doses beginning on the day of birth? Shouldn’t we be doing the research to reject this hypothesis? The logical approach to doing so would be to compare health outcomes between vaccinated and unvaccinated children. For years, public health officials, including the IOM, have urged CDC to conduct such studies.
In 2013, the IOM found that, “No studies have compared the differences in health outcomes… between entirely unimmunized populations of children and fully immunized children…. Furthermore, studies designed to examine the long-term effects of the cumulative number of vaccines or other aspects of the immunization schedule have not been conducted.” In a 2008 interview, former NIH Director Bernadette Healy explained that HHS refuses to perform safety studies out of fear that they will expose dangers, “that would scare the public away” from vaccines. Healy continued, “First of all, I think the public is smarter than that… I don’t think you should ever turn your back on any scientific hypothesis because you’re afraid of what it might show.”
The suppression of critical safety science documented by the IOM would not be possible without a mass epidemic of media malpractice. Mainstream and social media outlets which collectively received $9.6 billion in revenues from pharmaceutical companies in 2016 have convinced themselves they are protecting public health by aggressively censoring criticism of these coercively mandated, zero liability, and untested pharmaceutical products. But, the absence of press scrutiny leaves industry no incentive to improve vaccine safety. Muzzling discussions of government corruption and deficient safety science and abolishing vaccine injuries by fiat is not a strategy that will solve the growing chronic disease epidemic.
The children who comprise this badly injured generation are now aging out of schools that needed to build quiet rooms and autism wings, install wobble chairs, hire security guards and hike special ed spending to 25% to accommodate them. They are landing on the social safety net which they threaten to sink. As Democratic lawmakers vote to mandate more vaccines and call for censorship of safety concerns, Democratic Presidential candidates argue about how to fix America’s straining health care system. If we don’t address the chronic disease epidemic, such proposals are like rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic. The good news for Pharma is that many of these children have lifelong dependencies on blockbuster products like Adderall, Epi-Pens, asthma inhalers, and diabetes, arthritis, and anti-seizure meds made by the same companies that made the vaccines.
My belief that all or some of these injuries might be vaccine related has been the catalyst that wrenched so much of my focus away from the environmental and energy work that I love, and prompted me to become an advocate for vaccine safety. I have sacrificed friendships, income, credibility, and family relationships in an often-lonely campaign to force these companies to perform the tests that will definitively answer these questions.
People will vaccinate when they have confidence in regulators and industry. When public confidence fails, coercion and censorship became the final options. Silencing critics and deploying police powers to force untested medicines upon an unwilling public is not an optimal strategy in a democracy.
My uncle and my father argued that in a free and open society, the response to difficult questions should never be to shut down debate. What we need is science, not censorship. I am not anti-vax. I am pro-safety and pro-science. I want robust, transparent safety studies and independent regulators. These do not seem like the kind of radical demands that should divide our party or our families. As Americans and Kennedys, we ought to be able to have a civil, science-based debate about these legitimate concerns.

Thank you Robert Kennedy for your bravery in sharing your views on vaccines,however unpopular it is with many closeminded people.Too many people are motivated by greed,and it is a sad state
of affairs when money triumphs over the welfare of the people.I am so grateful for your honesty and courage.
Great article! So refreshing to read the truth instead of the continual lies on this subject. Having a grandson with autism, we have long suspected the onslaught of vaccines he was given immediately after birth. Thank you for exposing these “medical professionals” for what they really are…money-driven cowards. God bless you and the work you do.
Thank you so much for speaking truth and literally putting your life on the line for us! God bless you and give you victory in this gruesome battle.
Joan Spalding says
God bless you, Robert. Your father would be so proud of you. Jesus said the world would hate us just as they hated him for speaking the truth and exposing the sins. Thank you so much for your voice of reason.
God bless and protect you as you seek to protect our children!!
diane broitman says
This is why Marianne Williamson should be our next President! Children with cancer probably get it from being vaccinated also! I’ve witnessed tumor’s on dog’s who had vaccine’s and it showed up right where the shot was given as a cancerous tumor! Some healthy dog’s died from this! Once we get the MONEY out of POLITIC’s our health and AMERICA will be better off! Research her past 35 yrs. on You Tube, What You Need To Know About Marianne Williamson and support her campaign if you want the extreme opposite of this president! God knows we need her!
Thank you, thank you for your thorough work to shed light on this controversial subject. It is scary as a grandmother to hear this information and know that mainstream medicine and media is fully on board with companies obviously steeped in conflicts of interest and greed. Wake up, people!! Stop allowing mainstream media’s scaremongering to guide your thinking!
Irene James says
So good to see that there is a concerned, honest person amongst the greedy allopathic murderers and their puppet politicians. Well done, Robert Kennedy – you are a real peoples’ hero. Your Truth will prevail.
The era of Big Pharma and their poisons is coming to an end. The world is waking up to their deliberate shenanegans and harmful practices. And none too soon! May you and your family be protected.
Bob Mathews says
Great Article, Thank you
That was the best explanation for questioning vaccine safety that I have ever read. I will be saving it to share with others when the discussion comes up.
Thank you so much for getting this response to the public and my deepest gratitude for Mr. Kennedy for the sacrifices he has made to take a stand on this critical issue.
I don’t often read such a long letter but I just couldn’t stop reading this one. Mr Kennedy is taking a common sense approach to the question of vaccine safety and asking simple questions that we deserve to have the answers for. I hope someone in position of power will side with us and force them to tell us the truth. I fear for the next normal child who is vaccine injured after his or her “well baby” visit. This needs to stop.
Same! Thank you Robert Kennedy Jr.
The facts and stats in this letter are mind blowing! Mandating unsafe vaccinations to our babies… for profit!!?!! SHAME ON YOU CDC!! SHAME on you too Sen. Richard (Dick) Pen! He is California Senator who mandated 40 vaccines for our states children in order to go to school or day care. He’s a former pediatrician from Sacramento. Gross! Wake up and get loud America. CARE….. please
Thank you so much for having the courage to bring all this information to us. It boggles the mind that with all the evidence you have provided and the money these companies have collected on behalf of the vaccine industry that they are still permitted to do what they are doing. How do we protect our children when we are being forced to comply with the greed of these companies and a government that is not protecting our youth.
Terry Talbot says
Thank you when I was a retail pharmacist I was leaned on heavily to push vaccines! I often questioned the need for so many! This information needs to be main streamed so people can make informed decisions. So many young people have serious health issues I assumed environmental issues . I think this is a priority issue that needs a deeper dive into independent research . Thank you for your dedicated effort!
God is on your side and will Bless you Big Time!!!
Joshua Dean says
Thank you Mr. Kennedy, for all of your hard work in fighting for our families! Blessings, Favor and Strength for you in Jesus’ Name.
Constance Kight says
Thank you for your voice of reason in a world that puts it’s fingers in their ears for the sake of money! We pray for you and for like minded people and the rights we have to reject what we do not want! You sir, are a true statesman, and I applaud your courage!
Holly Rex says
Brave men who stand against the tide are heroes. You, Mr. Kennedy, are one. Thank you for your unwavering support in this fight to reveal the truth about vaccines. Stay strong in your mission. You have my prayers.
Robin Y says
Thank God for people like you Mr. Kennedy!
May God bless you and protect you!
Thank you for your learned and brave assessment of the fears and corruptions that mask truth-seeking in the pharmaceutical industry and beyond. God forgive us for ignoring the complicity of our representative politicians and policy makers instead of insisting on evidence and honesty in government.
Rose Paola says
Everyone looks at me like I have three heads when I question the safety of vaccines. I am a Special Education teacher and see first hand a lot of what you talked about in your report. I feel so alone and people (friends, family, etc.) make me feel like I am the crazy one for such beliefs. I would like to have the science and knowledge to discuss the reasons I feel the way I do and I feel your report gives me some beginning talking points. I am loving all the comments here! Thank you again for the information and your sacrifices.
Liz Searcy says
Mr. Kennedy—Thank you, thank you, thank you for your bravery and being an advocate and speaking the truth about vaccines. I appreciate your revelation of your thoughts in this article. I have a 27-year-old son who was vaccine-injured and now has autism and epilepsy. He is so precious to our family and is learning more independence every day. I am trying to speak out more and must get over the fear of what people will think as I attempt to unravel the truth about vaccines. Our children deserve the best of health. You are such an inspiration to me, my family, and many others. Please continue to be vocal about this issue.
Thanks Mr. Kennedy.
I don’t have the courage to fight, so I had my child vaccinated (by spreading out; not multiple shots in one day). For Hepatitis A vaccine, I waited until my child is 32 months old since I heard that it could cause seizures before the age of 2. One week after the vaccine he had a febrile seizure anyway… And now continues to have seizures. Will be taking him to a neurologist.
Barbara Ringwald MD says
I am a pediatrician, just turned 80 years old and was in private pediatric practice until I turned 76.
I was always aware of the many changes that happened over time in the health of the children, as well as the socio economic stages of the predominantly poor families they grew up in. I had early questions regarding this but not the younger generation of physicians I mentored and tried to teach that what they saw was absolutely abnormal. They had no clue. You see when changes happen over time like every day there is a little bit more freedom taken away from you, you may one day in the distance wake up with shackles on your hands and feet wondering how could this be? On many levels today this is happening to all of us. That gives us a way to be discerning and reach for an answer. The answer is to observe and be aware of that which happens around us and applying a yard stick of common sense with a clear mind, simply asking : can this be considered normal?
During a large regional conference about Autism a well known Pediatric Neurologist gave us pediatricians what we already knew: nothing. I asked: you show us a graph with an exponential increase or more of autism and you label it a neurologic disease. We are already at 36 percent affliction of our children, may I know what you will call it when the numbers exceed 100% ? It looks like we can already calculate that day. The entire assembly was silent, and my colleague still owes me an answer. We are constantly distracted to fit in and follow the rules. We also have had a problem with authority because we are put in place when we question it. So many of you could see clearly that Robert Kennedy Jr is on a sacred mission to fend for the good of the children and their families. Understand where you are coming from: we, I and you are sparks of God in a human body endowed , capable to know who we are and what we are and how we serve in God’s name. Humanity is under many pressures right now, and now is the time to embrace each other in harmony and work together. And allow yourself to say no when it does not make sense. There is power in numbers. You are powerful, divine human beings fulfilling the plan you made before you came here. Robert Kennedy is the light to follow.
Thank you for your valuable input on this controversial subject. As a grand parent I’m helping my adult children find resources to help them with their decisions on vaccinations.
RICHARD W KEARNEY says
I stumbled into this article by RFK, Jr. because it initially caught my immediate attention as a Kennedy was apparently being placed on the defensive by members of his family. But as I read on, as the Legal Guardian of a 15 year old granddaughter and young woman and as a person who has friends who have relatives who suffer from Autism or Asperger’s, I was stunned by the statistical revelations with regard to vaccines which I will assume are accurate.
In the broad vernacular I was “taken to school” with the rhetorical depth and breadth of this brief, but packed with details, “familial” rebuttal piece. A piece which identified for me the presence of a multi-headed monster which was birthed by the incestuous relationships which exists between government and industry an extant situation which is further exacerbated by a lack of the parties respective interests in employing even the most basic of scientific analysis.
A truly troubling and concerning article which for me cast sunlight upon many shadows previously unknown to me resulting in what a novice such as myself would see as a broad panorama of vaccine related issues which must be confronted assertively and immediately.
It was a wake up call for me…….
Barbara Ringwald MD says
Many people have indeed been shocked. Go to the website through which you received Robert Kannedy’s article: https://thetruthaboutvaccines.com. The authors of this website gave 7 weeks of informational sessions about vaccines that was watched over the entire world and has been rerun because of high demand. I believe you can order a CD from them which you may share with all the people in your family who have been so tragically affected by vaccines. But expect to make some enemies. Belief systems are hard to give up by some people, and logic is scary.

Camille Gilliam says
Thank you Mr. Kennedy for telling us the truth about what has been going on. I know how corrupt Big Pharma is because of all of the natural cure Dr.s that have mysteriously died, like all of the people that have been involved with the Clintons.
Marija Robey says
As a Registered Nurse for over 36 years and the mother of 3 grown children, I have listened to a great deal of anecdotal discussion of the alleged risks and benefits of vaccines. I have also been very aware of the more recent campaign to discredit all anti-vax rhetoric. It’s been very difficult to discern what is simply suspicion of any government mandated drug campaign on the part of a supposedly small, anti-science fringe group and what is a healthy, rational questioning of the safety of these virtually forced vaccinations–which is an entirely scientific position. After reading your article, I understand why. While a very justified distrust of the pharmaceutical industry prevails among most Americans, the emotionally charged accusations of selfish hysteria against “Anti-vaxxers” has made a deep impression on many people with sound critical thinking skills and has thwarted the necessary discussion that would almost certainly ensue in many other similar situations. But we’re talking of the GREATER GOOD of our CHILDREN for pete’s sake and wouldn’t the government put the the welfare of its children ahead of any political and financial gain?? Well–as we have witnessed in so many government actions over time and especially of late, I believe the answer is a resounding NO! I am not by nature a cynical person but, I see evidence all around me that indicates that the primary function of our government is the self-interest of its own dubiously qualified members. To say that our economy works for the uber-wealthy with drastically diminishing representation as we fall down the economic ladder is not a myth perpetrated by the Left or by the unjustifiably bitter failures among us. It is a visible truth of which Big Pharma is hugely complicit! I am NOT an anti-vaxxer! I believe in science and I believe in taking some measured and carefully defined risks for the greater good. It seems however, that our government’s crony relationship with Big Pharma is not invested in that mission at all and, we have seen that with regard to other pressing issues of our time, such as climate change and basic human rights The plutocrats whose interests rule the world today really don’t give a damn! It REALLY IS all about the profit margin, in perpetuity, of the very few over any consideration of any greater good.
I am wholly in favor of the necessary debate, research and transparency regarding whether or not to vaccinate our children. It seems like a “no brainer”. But then so does sweeping this current malignant, sociopathic force out of our government. But we shall see, and sadly, I am not holding my breath.
This is called having a wake up call!! Yes it hurts to realize it but more and more people are realizing this reality indeed and waking up to it. We have to thank people like RFK for so bravely standing up to defend human rights, integrity and dignity against those with the most questionnable intentions… The Vaccine reality today is unfortunately just a small piece of the big picture or the tip of the iceberg in the corruption of the entire fabric of our society. Look around you and keep questionning what you see that feels wrong. Keep using your critical thinking. Be suspicoius of the conflics of interests and profit driven associations between so called science, medias, universities and regulatory agencies with convincing names and reputable board members that are supposedly looking after your greatest good. Answers will come and if you you’re not affraid to be hurt by the truth you will see clear into this and become an asset for the transition on to a better world. Bless you all and bless ypu Mr Kennedy.
Kim Beckett says
When we will all learn that those in power need to be carefully watched. Even in a system where oversight is in place the corrupt will slowly erode and replace those systems until they can do what they want freely. We must all be as diligent as RFK Jr. If he can find the strength to forge ahead so can we. Let’s help this blessed man get this done, once and for all. Please share this article and show these criminals the power of the people!
Earth Angels among us…. I think of him all the time when these issues arise around me personally. Time will eventually show the truth. To all us parents dealing with the repercussions of such greed, remember to keep the light in your soul and the fire in your belly shining, we are not a!one. Thank you Mr. Kennedy.
Maria Craig says
Thank you Mr Kennedy! I am. convinced you are right!
diane jabaley says
Mr. Kennedy, Thank you for your courage and perseverance in seeking and then speaking truth. We are eternally grateful. You will remain in our prayers.
“Safe vaccines.” In order to think vaccines can be made to be safe, you have to wonder 3 things:
1) Does true vaccine science exist?—Real science, not the contrived, manipulated and fraudulent “science” currently purported to be true.
2) Would true placebo-controlled studies prove vaccines are even effective?
2) If vaccines can be made to be safe, why haven’t they been already?
Brenda Jeter says
Thank you Mr. Kennedy. You have been so supportive to the health and welfare of the children of this nation. Stay strong and never loose heart no matter who attacks you.
We the people support you.
Susan Hutchinson says
Thank you for advocating for our children.
Dear Mr. Kennedy, I’m adding my deep appreciation to all the others. Thank you so much for having the courage to stand by your convictions.
I have several family members & friends who have been injured by vaccines – a niece w/ Autism from her MMR vax and a cousin who has suffered since the 70s due to Guillain-Barré, had to give up their business & nearly died – never fully recovered. Then there’s a 59 yr. old with non-verbal Autism requiring 24 hr. care from his wonderful 89-90 yr. old parents. It happened right after a vaccine.
And several family members and friends think I’m a fanatic, due to my healthy life-style and refusal to accept any shots that do NOT belong in my body — flu, shingles, etc. They don’t keep up with any sites such as this and would never believe that Big Pharma and other ABC companies are promoting the vaccines and many medications for the $$$. After all, they have been established to help us, not harm us….. Yeah, right!
God bless you in all your efforts, and may He keep you safe.
Mary Rodewald says
Fight on Mr. Kennedy! I, too, have often questioned the contents of vaccines for children. You care enough to “rock the boat” regarding these eye-opening issues. You care enough to listen to the “spirit” in you that tells you something needs to be changed. You care enough to not be deterred by those you love who do not agree with you and put those disagreements in a public forum. May our Lord and Savior bless you and continue to shine His light of strength on you. You have risen to the challenge and I pray that you, like King David, will conquer the proverbial corporate pharma giants. My deepest thanks as you continue this most humanitarian journey.
Victor Eduardo DeJesus says
Given the toxins in vaccines and the existence of the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Fund, it was obvious to me that Vaccines are not safe. But for some time I was not sure about their efficacy. Recently I found another article that clearly shows that Vaccines did not eradicate the common childhood diseases of the 19th and 20th centuries as many authorities would have us believe. The writers of this article, clearly showed that Vaccines had no effect in the eradications of Mumps, Measles and all the other childhood diseases that we are familiar with. It showed that the reduction in the death rates from these diseases was due to the improvements in sanitation and hygiene practices and not due toVaccines. So at that point I realised that Vaccines are not only not safe, but they also have no significant health benefit !!!!!! Amazing…. They are the biggest scam ever.
Karen Elliston says
Thank you Mr. Kennedy for your courage to speak the truth about vaccine safety. I am the mother two vaccine injured sons (now 27 and 25) who have high-functioning autism, and a third son who was not vaccinated and was neuro-typical until receiving one dose of DPT at the age of 11 (needed a tetanus shot only but was now longer available as a stand alone) and then within a few weeks told me his brain wasn’t working the same and began suffering from severe anxiety and ADD.
I am also witness to the effects of vaccine damage each day as a teacher of children with severe autism. These are the children that cannot be in a regular school and need one on one supervision at all times. 90% of these children are non-verbal, 90% suffer from seizures and are on medications to control the seizures. It is gut-wrenching to see these children and their families robbed of a normal life. These children age out of the autism center at the age of 22 and then the families are left to find some type of adult care and at some point a group home living situation. There is a huge shortage of both child and adult care for this population and it is going to get much worse in the coming years.
I have been personally attacked for my views on the dangers of the current vaccine policy. It is polarizing for anyone who dares to question or speak against it. Now that anything considered anti-vaccine is censored, your support is appreciated more than ever. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for continuing to speak the truth.
Barbara Ringwald MD says
As a pediatrician I have seen too many children with autism in my practice. I know how gut wrenching it is or parents. Neurodegenerative diseases have been on a steady rise, and escalating since about 1986. While vaccines are possible the main contributor, another often cited very harmful agent id Aluminum in a nanoparticulate form that affects the brain of children as well adults (Alzheimer). The common origin of Aluminum is the daily spraying of our skies by jet air craft leaving strips horizon to horizon or grids that eventually pouf up and flow into each other, ten falling to earth for you and I the breathe and nature to be covered with, leading to the death of our insects, bees, birds, trees, forests and harming all of our cellular systems, interfering with hormones, reproduction, immunity etc. For a wealth of information go to geoengineeringwatch.com, a huge knowledge is on this website, including also vaccines but many other topics you need to be informed about. The site belongs to Dane Wigington. You find him weekly on you tube telling us what we have no access to.Tell others always when you think you learned valuable information. Good luck to you, Karen. You need to know that all autistic children are very special children. While they look like “damaged kids” to some people I have had the privilege to have deep communications with blind and nonverbal autistic kids who were so happy to have others in their presence, and their moms were outstanding. They are telepathic and “see” with their pineal gland in their brain.
Melissa Moore says
Thank God for brave people like him!
Mary Hosfeld says
I agree and also thank God for brave people like Robert Kennedy and the brave Kennedys before him!
Bonnie Barfield says
Thank you for revealing the truth; your efforts and courage are appreciated. I’ve had horrible experiences with the cats in my life who had to have rabies vaccinations because it is required “by law.” Two cats developed sarcomas where the rabies shot was injected and had to have their legs amputated, only to die within 6 months. Supposedly, the adjuvant has been reformulated to minimize the occurrence of sarcomas. Vaccines can have horrible side effects for both humans and animals.
it would b interesting to find out why ur cats had that reaction, when most other pets don’t. i wonder if it’s the same situation as humans, that a subset of kids r more vulnerable cuz of digestive issues, as is claimed by dr andrew wakefield. thanks for sharing & sorry for ur loss.
Do the research, Mick. ISS (Injection Site Sarcoma) is more common than you think. https://healthypets.mercola.com/sites/healthypets/archive/2016/12/06/cat-injection-site-sarcoma.aspx
Gerald Bischoff says
Thank you for all your work on vaccine safety. Thank God there is someone
speaking out who has standing in the world’s health community. For the rest of us
you have given us hope with the backlash of your presentations.
Brooke Kildey says
Thank you for your courage – it’s hard to find the words to express how deeply what you are doing means to me to everybody in the US and the world. Standing up to everything that I’m sure you hold dear for doing the RIGHT thing to save our children is such a tall order – you are a HERO and thank GOD that you are here for all of us. Some day (hopefully sooner rather than later) people will know just how insane our vaccine program is much in the same way that people are catching on to barbaric way of treating cancer. Thank you from the bottom of my heart – you are truly a shining light in this dark storm.
Barbara Ringwald MD says
I have had regular communication since years with individuals who are full time working in the field of deciphering news from reliable sources regarding the facts about who it is or which group or corporate entity it is to willfully do harm to people. These sources know from other sources that
at this point they are all ready for disclosure. Hang on to your boot straps. Much will be revealed that you neither have knowledge about nor can you imaine the degree of lies mankind has been served over times present and past and way past and even more past. And with that things will change, very shortly. We are living in very exciting times.
Thank you so much for exposing those frauds despite all the challenges. God bless you!
Joyce Rossi Chiaccio says
Mr Kennedy, big pharmaceutical companies are dependent on selling their product. We are paying money for untested vaccines that big pharma knowingly produced and is the cause of life-long desease. Greedy government protects big pharma with government mandated vaccination. We must protect our precious children and say no to government mandated vaccination. We must protect our children.
Cheri walter says
Thank you for sharing the truth for parents to see
Hilary Goldsmith says
Excellent article. Thank you, Mr. Kennedy, for caring. We need to continue to push for the safety of vaccines (can they ever be safe?).. Period. Thank you for not backing down, not giving up and ensuring people know the truth. You are an impressive man and we are so grateful for you.
Roberta Boecker says
Fascinating! I left teaching in 1984 of second and third grade students and never saw autism in 12 years. I have oftened wondered why it is on the rise and common today. Thank you for your excellent letter and information.
Barbara Ringwald MD says
I am a pediatrician and got a surprise some 7 years ago when I traveled to a small South American country and discovered the following:
The children of all ages are healthy and energetic. They play outside rain or shine because they have such a drive to play. They play fairly, and any mistake anyone makes is laughed about heartily and not a reason for complaint. There is no .such thing as allergies or Asthma. Nobody takes any medication, bones are not broken, eczema, what’s that?? Autism? Show me. Babies go to work with mom, often when very small, they spend the day in an empty banana box at the market. If the box is larger it will be stacked with more children. Dirt is unavoidable and eating it is allowed. Dogs are “liberated”. They fend for themselves to find food. They suffer car accidents occasionally and that is sad, However most are street wise and cross only when people cross. When people actually own dogs they run without leash and promptly and most reliable follow the owner without being trained for this. Free dogs are skinny and have no people diseases, that is due to scarcity of food which acts like a ketogenic diet. People’s diets are free of GMO and are mostly veggies and delicious tropical fruits, some chicken and eggs. There is no spraying of toxins from the air. Water comes from the mountains and is put through one reverse filtration to make it delicious. Why are these people so healthy? You just got the list. Compare with yours. You have the answer. Oh yes they get basic vaccinations only.
You’re helping prevent many destroyed lives sir. Your courage is astounding and to be applauded.
On behalf of the children (including my grandchildren), keep up the good fight. We will win in the end!
Dr Deb says
Mr. Kennedy, an enormous THANK YOU for this much-needed, deeply researched, clearly-written, excellent piece of journalism! Shame on Politico for not publishing this letter. You have not only explained your views on vaccines so well, but you have summed up perfectly, including so many shocking facts and examples, all that is wrong with 20th-21st century science and medicine in this country.
When groups opposing uncritically accepted dogma are given the pejorative prefix “anti” (“anti-vax”, “anti-fluoride”, etc), you can assume that those assigning such a name have either not been doing their homework, relying only on appeal to authority (thus blind trust), or they have something to gain (usually profit) by doing so. These name-calling labels intentionally preclude any intelligent and respectful dialogue or debate. When mainstream media refer to “anti-vaxxers”, they are admitting right there where they are coming from, and it’s surely not objective reporting.
Everyone reading Mr. Kennedy’s letter should send it to everyone they know, with the request to send it to everyone they know. That may be what it takes these days to get the truth out. Blessings to you, Mr. Kennedy, for your insight, foresight, sacrifice, and courage! (And thank you, TTAC/V, for publishing this!)
Verna Hebert says
Thank you Mr. Kennedy for researching and calling attention to this serious issue . Thank you for looking out for all of us . Medical has become PROFITS , not curing people !!! We can no longer rely on the medical advice we are getting . . I am concerned for my grandchildren and great grandchild . We need more people on our side looking out for our health and not monetary profits !
BOOM! What a devastating rebuttal. No wonder NO ONE wants to debate this issue (especially against you – debate in America is dead). However, aside from the greed involved there is a larger genetic engineering agenda involved in the vaccine issue which is being glossed over, largely because it the general populace cannot even conceive of the evil motivations of certain groups of beings on this planet. .
This is the best, most concise and comprehensive article focusing on vaccine awareness (not being anti-vaccine, just encouraging looking at every vaccine individually, knowing all the facts and making an educated decision about whether it is right for your child or yourself) that I have every read. I am a pharmacist, and my professional society, college and all the continuing education that I have ever seen pushes vaccines so vigorously on a constant basis. I have not given a single vaccine in over five years and that is not easy in my profession. I hope I have a fraction of the courage that Mr. Kennedy has shown to go against my educational training and professional pressure to help my patients be informed of the facts. Thank you Mr. Kennedy!!
Mr. Kennedy, You are a genius and a hero! You are making the world a better place! What an inspiration you are! Thank you for using your talents to expose wrongs and serve others. You are so courageous to boldly stand up to the status quo, even though it includes your family and friends. I would be very proud to have you as a member of my family and truly honored to call you a friend. May God defend you, empower you, and bless you!
Mr. Kennedy, you are a champion. Thank you for providing us with such solid information. You are being heard. We are grateful.
I just found this…staggering numbers
leaves me wondering how many people never filed an injury report/claim.
Rob Fowler says
Wow Mr. Kennedy. Thank you for your words and passion. What we don’t know can most certainly do us harm.
Ann Wanless says
Were it needed, the simple fact that Politico won’t publish this response supports this sad expose.
Christopher Gamez says
Mr Kennedy is standing up for our children. He’s not influenced by money or by “Bought Out” politicians. He is a true hero and champion of the people. Because of people like him more and more people are slowly opening their eyes to the dangers of these concoctions injected into our babies. Unfortunately people refuse to believe that big pharma would ever do anything to harm them or their children. They are trained by “pharma funded” FOX and CNN to get keep injecting your children. Fighting this criminal organization must continue even though it will ostracize you from friends and family. Af first it’s scary but after time you get used to their cdc fed responses . Read “Dissolving Illusions” by Suzanne Humphries and other books so you can counter their big pharma fed responses. Good luck
Theresa McClear says
Thank you Robert Kennedy. Our daughter was born perfectly healthy. She lost her ability to talk at age 5, began to wander away, had sleep problems, anxiety’, sensory, behavior issues and was diagnosed with autism. She is now 20 and will require a lifetime of support. Other parents with autism have told me they saw a direct correlation of autism after a vaccine shot. More research is needed. Again many thanks. Theresa.
God bless you Mr Kennedy and thank you so much for for looking out for all of us.
Also, shame on Politico and every source that will only publish their own agenda.
Elsa Martin says
I also applaud your courage, research, clear thought and your reasonable stance in asking for scientific evidence. I agree that with something as foreign to our bodies as vaccines, we need to be cautious in using them. Children’s and our immune systems need strengthening with a good diet and exercise, .rather than the weakening that vaccines seem to cause.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! We can only pray that articles like this might make a difference. I’m a physician and it seriously blows my mind how many of my colleagues are blindly supporting vaccines and criticize anyone who questions their safety. And I believe that the doctors who are advocates of safer vaccines are afraid speaking up may tarnish their reputation. Where has critical thinking gone? What’s happening to our respect for human rights?
Dennise Waldron says
Thank you for your bravery. The article was well researched and well worded.
It is apparent that the author is a data geek. I enjoy the way he writes and writes facts.
Jenifer Zabala says
I am so glad I came across your article! It took me weeks to search
for the information you’ve mentioned previously and it’s a true blessing
to find someone as interested in this subject as myself.
What I’m attempting to say is the importance of this problem
cannot be hesitated. People who increase it are worth appreciation despite the fact that I, personally, do not fully share
your own views. Anyway, thank you for sharing your expertise!
