Why Medical Authorities Went to Such Extremes to Silence Dr. Andrew Wakefield
In this interview, Dr. Andrew Wakefield shares his personal and professional insights into a number of topics, from the gut-brain
connection so often seen in autistic children, to the safety of a number of childhood vaccines.
But most importantly, he sets the record straight on the harsh criticism he’s endured as the author of one of the most controversial
vaccine-causing-autism studies ever done.
In addition to his hotly contested MMR study, published in the journal Lancet in 1998, he has published about 130-140 peer-reviewed papers
looking at the mechanism and cause of inflammatory bowel disease, and has extensively investigated the brain-bowel connection in the context
of children with developmental disorders such as autism.
Once in a while, someone writes a column that leaves me enviously exclaiming, “Darn! I wish I had written that!” Candidly, I
do not often find myself saying that, but I sure did when I read William Norman Grigg’s excellent column entitled “Casus
Belli” (Latin for “Case for War”) on Monday, March 29, 2010. Read his column (even if you don’t read the rest of
I want to try and expound on Grigg’s outstanding analysis of the Hutaree militia raid. In doing so, I am going to also expand upon
Grigg’s reference to James Madison’s trenchant treatise in Federalist 46.
Referring to the federal indictment against the Hutaree militia, that alleged members were making preparations for potential armed
conflict against law enforcement officers as a “seditious conspiracy,” Grigg astutely noted, “If they were acquiring
weapons and developing appropriate skills in anticipation of defending themselves against government aggression, their actions–while
possibly conspiratorial in nature–don’t amount to a crime. This is particularly true in light of our cultural history, in which
sedition–agitation to change the existing political order–is our proudest civic tradition.”
Grigg then rightly observes, “Government is nothing more than the rationalization and exercise of violence. Everything done by
government contains at least the implicit threat of lethal coercion. Thus the indictment’s description of Hutaree as ‘an
anti-government extremist organization which advocates violence against local, state and Federal law enforcement’ is a product of
rhetorical onanism [from Genesis 38:9--a great analogy, Will].”
As a general rule, government is the most violent force on the planet. If one wants to get a true perspective on the historical record
regarding who or what routinely produces the most violence and death, one should pick up a copy of R. J. Rummel’s book, “Death By
Government.” Since the end of World War II, Communist China and Red Russia lead the pack when it comes to death and brutality; however,
the US government has inflicted its share of carnage as well. For example, in Iraq and Afghanistan alone, the government in Washington, D.C.,
has killed over 800,000 civilians (and this figure is a conservative estimate noting the most credible resources possible).
Plus, does anyone remember the violence that our federal government enacted upon the Branch Davidians outside Waco, Texas? Does anyone
remember the mother shot in the head while innocently holding her little baby in her own home by a federal sniper near Ruby Ridge, Idaho
(after her small son was shot in the back by federal agents)? In fact, the list of civilians who have been killed by federal law enforcement
agents over the years is a very long one. Granted, many of these killings were done in lawful self-defense; but others amounted to nothing
less than old-fashioned murder (and never was the federal agent who committed the murder ever brought to justice).
If one wants to indict an “organization which advocates violence,” then surely the central government in Washington, D.C.,
should be indicted!
If Hutaree members were indeed planning AGGRESSIVE violence against anyone–in the government or without–they deserved to be
stopped. If, however, they were simply preparing to DEFEND THEMSELVES against government overreach or abuse–and would only resort to
violence in an act of lawful self-defense–they committed no crime and are but the most recent victims of federal abuse of power. This
is a question that will doubtless be determined in a court of law.
To charge, however (as the indictment does), that Hutaree members (all 9 of them!) planned “to levy war against the United States,
[and] to oppose by force the authority of the Government of the United States . . .” will take some doing to make stick. As Grigg
points out, “If Hutaree was preparing for armed DEFENSE against criminal actions by government officials, this charge is as pointless
as a broken pencil. If their efforts to ‘prevent, hinder, and delay’ various government initiatives were confined to activism,
rather than armed conflict, they are–in that particular–not substantially different from hundreds or thousands of other
The entire case against Hutaree appears to be based upon the testimony of an FBI undercover agent inside the group. Placing agent
provocateurs inside groups such as Hutaree is a classic strategy of federal police agencies. This part of the story was broken by the Wall
Using agent provocateurs is a long-favored tactic of both the Kremlin and the White House. Joel Skousen’s latest WORLD AFFAIRS BRIEF
contains an extremely trenchant and insightful analysis of how Russia and the US have used–and continue to use–this tactic.
Skousen writes, “A related tactic [to false flag operations] is the hiring of agent provocateurs to infiltrate a group targeted for
destruction and induce radical elements of that group to perform crimes against innocent civilians that will justify armed retaliation or
arrest. With the sudden surge in claimed terrorism in Russia and the arrest of the radical Hutaree group in the US, it is helpful to review
the role of false flag terror attacks in Russia and the role of agent provocateurs in the US as we analyze what’s really going
Skousen further states, “As we move on to discuss the arrest of the radical members of the Hutaree cult in Michigan, it is important
to note that virtually every prosecution of so-called domestic terrorism in the past decade is owed to the infiltration of FBI informants.
While none of us in America dispute the need to gain intelligence on real threats to national security, we have to question the propriety of
training and pressuring informants (most of which have been forced to accept the informant assignment in lieu of a prison term for other
crimes committed) to provoke and induce angry and unstable dissidents to commit acts of terror.
“All too often, FBI ‘informants’ have been pressured by superiors to go far beyond informing. They have provided
weapons, explosives, and even acted as the guiding hand to map out the strategy and tactics for performing the deed. These things only come
out reluctantly during trial, and even then I suspect that we are never allowed to know the full extent of these provocations.”
To receive a sample of Joel Skousen’s WORLD AFFAIRS BRIEF or to subscribe to this excellent newsletter (I highly recommend it),
In addition, Will Grigg states that another major component of the indictment that is worrisome is the charge that Hutaree is guilty of
“seditious conspiracy.” As Grigg writes, “Whatever is eventually learned about Hutaree, as things presently stand the
indictment against it could provide a template for ’seditious conspiracy’ prosecutions involving practically any group that
endorses the use of defensive force to protect citizens against government aggression.
“Indeed, the definition of ‘conspiracy’ used in the Hutaree indictment could make a criminal out of anyone who reads
Federalist Paper 46 in public, thereby sharing James Madison’s commendably seditious admonition that the people preserve ‘the
advantage of being armed’ in the event that insurrection against the central government proves necessary in order to preserve
Let’s look a little closer at Federalist 46, written by Founding Father, author of the US Constitution, and America’s fourth
President, James Madison. In dispelling the fears of colonists toward a standing federal army, Madison said in Federalist 46, “Let a
regular army, fully equal to the resources of the country, be formed; and let it be entirely at the devotion of the federal government; still
it would not be going too far to say, that the State governments, with the people on their side, would be able to repel the danger. The
highest number to which, according to the best computation, a standing army can be carried in any country, does not exceed one hundredth part
of the whole number of souls; or one twenty-fifth part of the number able to bear arms. This proportion would not yield, in the United
States, an army of more than twenty-five or thirty thousand men. To these would be opposed a militia amounting to near half a million of
citizens with arms in their hands, officered by men chosen from among themselves, fighting for their common liberties, and united and
conducted by governments possessing their affections and confidence. It may well be doubted, whether a militia thus circumstanced could ever
be conquered by such a proportion of regular troops.”
Madison went on to say, “Besides the advantage of being armed, which the Americans possess over the people of almost every other
nation, the existence of subordinate governments, to which the people are attached, and by which the militia officers are appointed, forms a
barrier against the enterprises of ambition, more insurmountable than any which a simple government of any form can admit of. Notwithstanding
the military establishments in the several kingdoms of Europe, which are carried as far as the public resources will bear, the governments
are afraid to trust the people with arms.”
Could Madison be any clearer? He (and the rest of America’s founders) emphatically expected the militia of the “several
States” to be universally armed against the potential encroachment on liberty by the central government, meaning: the citizenry must at
all times be prepared to use their arms against any aggressive nature of the federal government to trample their freedoms.
This, of course, reinforces the founders’ intent, that the 2nd Amendment protected the right of the people to keep and bear arms for
the express purpose of providing the citizenry with the capability to repel (with violence) any assault against their liberties by their own
So, pray tell, would today’s FBI categorize James Madison’s statements in Federalist 46 as “seditious conspiracy”?
If so, perhaps we are closer to tyranny than any of us wants to admit!
Furthermore, it is not lost to millions of Americans that this is the same federal government (through Department of Homeland Security
fusion centers) that just recently characterized pro-lifers; people who support the 2nd Amendment; people who oppose the United Nations and
illegal immigration; people who voted for Ron Paul or Chuck Baldwin; and Iraq War veterans as “extremists” and potential
“dangerous militia members.”
But, once again, the federal government–along with their propagandists in the major news media, including its artificial authority
on militias, the ultra-liberal Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) in Montgomery, Alabama–is able to use the Hutaree militia to demonize
militias in general, and even more damaging, to try and destroy the concept of constitutional State militias in the minds of the American
Did members of the Hutaree intend to carry out aggressive violence against law enforcement personnel? I have no idea. Until this story
broke in the national media, I had never heard of this group. I will wait for the facts to come out–if indeed the federal government
and national media even allow the facts to come out.
I do know this: I do not trust the federal government to tell the truth about anything! They did not tell the truth about the Branch
Davidians at Waco; they did not tell the truth about Randy Weaver; they did not tell the truth about Gordon Kahl; and, if their track record
is any indicator, it is doubtful that they are telling the truth about the Hutaree militia. But we shall see.
In the meantime, as William Norman Grigg opines, “There’s reason to believe that the Feds have expanded and escalated this
ongoing enterprise to exploit, and exacerbate, growing public hostility toward an increasingly invasive and esurient government.
“Whether it is ever demonstrated that Hutaree intended to ‘levy war’ against the U.S. government, this much is beyond
serious dispute: The Homeland Security state is unambiguously preparing for war with the public–in fact, it has been doing so for a
GULBUDDIN HIKMATYAR, “BUSH TERRORIST MASTERMIND” AND BIN LADEN ASSOCIATE WORKING FOR U.S.?
WHAT ELSE HAVE WE BEEN LYING ABOUT?
By Gordon Duff STAFF WRITER/Senior Editor
For many months, our sources in Pakistan, including the country’s top military advisers, have been telling
us that “top terrorist” Gulbuddin Hikmatyar, a man being hunted by the Delta Force, CIA and thousands of American troops, was
advising American negotiations to end the war in Afghanistan. We had been told that he had been a “trusted source” for many
years, including the years that the US listed him as a top bin Laden lieutenant. If this was true, and we have since learned it is, then
most of what we had all been told about the Bush “war on terror” had been total baloney.
Friends in Afghanistan have known Hikmatyar all his life. Some don’t care for him much, although he was Prime Minister in 93 and
94. During the war against the Soviet Union, Hikmatyar was the primary CIA contact in Afghanistan, channeling nearly $1 billion dollars in
aid to fighters there assisting the CIA’s top asset, a Saudi named Usama bin Laden. I had wanted to meet with Hikmatyar but was warned
it would be a violation of law, even for a journalist, and I would be arrested, as so many others have been, not just for talking to him, but
for knowing people who know him or even communicating with his “associates.” It was all called “material support of
terrorism” and it was all a lie.
Secret prisons were filled with people we now know were actually working with CIA assets, people imprisoned, it seems, to keep their
mouths shut. Similarly, many of the domestic terrorism arrests made, most tied to illegal FISA wiretaps, all overturned in Federal court
last week, were also tied, sometimes very remotely, to Hikmatyar, a man I have been told has been working for years to bring peace to
Afghanistan, told personally by America’s top allies in the region. I couldn’t report the truth or interview anyone or I would
have ended up in under federal indictment like others I know who got too close to the facts.
IT GOES SO MUCH FURTHER THAN THIS
Last month, Jeff Gates I attended private military briefings in Pakistan. Along with briefings by various services, our staff from
Pakistan and Afghanistan, including Maj. Mujtaba, Gen. Asif Haroon Raja, Dr. Tarik Jan, Fayyaz Shah and others were briefed by former
Chairman, JCOS Pakistan Admiral Sirohey, former Army Chief of Staff Mirza Aslam Beg, Dr. S.M. Rahman, former PsyOps Chief, Lt. General Hamid
Gul, former Director General ISI and most of the top military staff that coordinated our efforts to remove the Soviets from Afghanistan. We
then met with political party leaders and were briefed by the nations top think tanks. A few things became more than a bit clear.
Not only did nothing we were told by both official and unofficial sources match up with what was being reported in the news, we were able
to verify that America had been involved in a vast and complex campaign of disinformation and deception against the American public, one
designed to, not only blame Pakistan and everyone else for the deteriorating situation in the region but that American policies showed clear
indications of America’s real purpose in Afghanistan being something very different than stated.
THE STRANGE CASE OF USAMA BIN LADEN
MARJEH, AFGHANISTAN, SURROUNDED BY OPIUM FIELDS
No group has ever met with people who have personally known all the leaders the Bush administration had designated as terrorist, including
bin Laden. Without breaking personal confidences, one thing was clear. It is a humiliation for Pakistan, a country that is fighting for its
life in a war against terrorism that has killed thousands there, including family members of some I met, to have to pretend to hunt for bin
Laden, who all of us admitted had died many years before. In meetings with people whose names, out of courtesy I omit, we all looked across
the room from each other and rolled our eyes back into our heads. The general agreement is that the Easter Bunny would be easier to find
that bin Laden and represents a greater threat to American security.
Bin Laden, himself, is an enigma. Most of the statements credited him when he was alive were mistranslated. According to those who are
the world’s foremost experts on bin Laden and military operations in the region, bin Laden never had a major following nor was he ever
in control of any worldwide terrorist organization. In fact, the other major terrorist leader, Mullah Omar, when described by close
associates of the American effort in Afghanistan, is also described as never a terrorist leader of any kind. Mullah Omar is spoken of, in
general, with great affection and seen as a folk hero by millions. Where Hikmatyar has enemies and a reputation for brutality while working
for the CIA, Mullah Omar is greatly respected. Nobody sees Omar, or most of the other leaders we list as major international terrorists as
anything but minor players with little more than bodyguards and household staff. Everyone “in the know” claims the US simply
makes it all up just to fool the public.
WHY TARGET BIN LADEN?
Bin Laden’s history is a strange one. His family has had direct ties to the Bush family for years, with close friendships and
complex financial interrelationships. On at least one occasion, George “W” Bush was bailed out of a business failure by bin
Laden money. The bin Laden’s were the portal that former Reagan administration cabinet officers used to get into business with Saudi
Arabia, making billions in profits through takeovers of several major American arms companies. Nearly 100 billion dollars, most from
“Operation Desert Storm” countries is managed by Bush and his associates, investing in everything from arms, to slave labor
operations in the Middle East to the ownership of Dunkin Donuts.
President George “W” Bush’s first priority after 9/11 was to get all bin Laden family members out of the United States
and away from the FBI. The next flight out, when every other plane was grounded, went to Israel.
What we do know about Usama bin Laden is that he denied any direct involvement in 9/11. Any reports to the contrary have all been
discredited and traced back to agencies fronting for Israeli intelligence services. Another thing we know is that Usama bin Laden worked for
the CIA for years. We are also told that he was moved from place to place on American planes and received medical care at US facilities for
advanced kidney disease. FBI translator Sibel Edmonds has confirmed that bin Laden and other terrorist leader were regular passengers on US
government flights. The FBI called these passengers, “bin Ladens” in official documents. Attorney General John Ashcroft ordered
Sibel Edmonds silenced for 6 years. Now the press has a “blackout” on her testimony, statements supported by documentation that
prove many high officials of the Bush administration and members of congress to be involved in espionage against the United States.
CITY OF MARJEH, AFGHANISTAN. 80,000 PEOPLE?
Though never charged with any crimes tied to 9/11, Usama bin Laden was the subject of the biggest manhunt in world history, a manhunt that
culminated in his killing on December 15, 2001. Was Usama bin Laden killed to shut him up? In his last video interview, while actually
alive, bin Laden suggested that the US look elsewhere for those who were responsible for the 9/11 attacks. Bin Laden believed Israel was
responsible. Now Israel has been caught distributing phony bin Laden tapes, currently relegated to “audio only” that, after the
fiasco of the “Crotch Bomber” last Christmas, only drives more and more people to broad suspicions of Israeli complicity in the
planning and execution of the similar but larger scale attacks on 9/11.
When “terrorist” Abdulmohammed was quickly loaded onto the plane for Detroit, no ticket, no passport, after being strip
searched by Dutch based Israeli security officers, his small and almost harmless bomb must have been a surprise to everyone, everyone but the
other passenger who video taped all of it and was taken away by Homeland Security in front of witnesses, taken away but never arrested or
PUTIN SUSPICIOUS ABOUT RUSSIAN SUBWAY BOMBINGS
Israel and America have a long and complicated relationship in the Caucasus’. America’s attempt to “surround”
Russia by bringing the Ukraine and Georgia into NATO was part of a broader plan to destabilize the Caspian basin, a massive source of natural
gas and oil and a center of a “pipeline war” between two groups. One group is led by Israel, Turkey and the US against the
Russian company Gazprom, world’s largest supplier of natural gas. By 2009, Gazprom has secured all the regions gas supplies, leaving
the Israeli, Turkish and US consortium with empty pipelines and only one possible source of gas supplies, Iran. Thus, the war rhetoric about
Iran and nuclear weapons has been reaching crescendo proportions. Without this gas revenue, Israel, Turkey and the US will be forced to
survive on narcotics revenue alone.
Previous attacks inside Russia, tied to Chechen militants have killed hundreds, even thousands. Russia had tied support and training of
the terrorists to Israel and the United States. Now the rush is on to convince Putin that Israel and the US were not involved in the recent
terror attacks in Moscow. This has been made much more difficult because of the obvious Mossad “footprint” on the Detroit
bombing attempt and increasing evidence of Israeli complicity in the Mumbai attacks and operations in Afghanistan.
The traditional analytical tools of the intelligence trade: 1. timing 2. who profits 3. who has the capability 4. who has the
influence to “spin” the news and suppress an investigation
These standards, things the Russians know very well, are pointing directly at a conspiracy, especially considering the horrible diplomatic
failures of Netanyahu’s Washington visit. Some very “fast talking” is being done, you can be assured of this. Russia has
teeth, sharp and long.
GULBUDDIN AND THE FAILED MYTH OF INTERNATIONAL TERRORISM
Usama bin Laden always talked about justice for the Palestinian people. For decades, Americans had been fed an unending diet of stories
of Palestinian terrorist and a threatened Israel. That “cover story ” is now coming apart. With Israel one of the world’s
richest nations and largest arms exporters, the regions primary super-power, even threatening Western Europe with nuclear attack, talking
about “poor Israel” just doesn’t fly anymore. Instead of coming to the US begging for aid, Israel now comes here to spit
in our faces openly. They still take our money, mind you, but they also remind us to “mind our own business” and let them deal
with the ethnic cleansing of Palestine uninterrupted.
While the American press has, over the past 20 years, fallen under Israeli control, the myth of massive international terrorist
organizations intent on destroying the United States has been endlessly repeated, not only by the press, but by political leaders benefiting
from scare tactics and everyone out to make a quick buck on replacing the “cold war” with a new imaginary terror war. In fact,
there is absolutely no reason for any Islamic group to care one way or another about anything the United States does anymore. The brutal
Shah is gone from Iran and our continued support of the oil states is not a serious issue, not serious enough to support terrorism against
the US. There is only one rationale for any attack on the US and that is our support of Israel.
Problem is, attacks don’t come when they are “right” for the would be terrorists, they come when they are convenient for
The traditional analytical tools of the intelligence trade: 1. timing 2. who profits 3. who has the capability 4. who has the
influence to “spin” the news and suppress an investigation
Thus, when I had been told all that time that the great terrorist leader, one busy planning attacks against the United States, Gulbuddin
Hikmatyar, has been working with us all along, and that other “major leaders” were never leaders at all and that bin Laden was
never really the “bin Laden” we thought, it all comes apart. Combining that with the FBI revelations that the US has been
flying, not only terrorists around but plane loads of opium and it all falls apart. There are no terrorist leaders, there are no
international terrorist organizations and those “all too timely” terror attacks we seem to have are no more real than the phony
bin Laden tapes the Israelis send us.
If Gulbuddin was ours when we were supposedly out hunting him, was bin Laden also? Mullah Omar? The others? In fact, we seemed to have
gotten out of the Bush years, with not only no credible intelligence on anything but even our useless information has now proven unusable as
it also was illegally obtained through wiretaps that violated criminal law.
Is it any surprise that dozens of people died today in attacks in Iraq, the country we supposedly pacified at a cost in lives and money
that has yet to be tabulated?
HOW FAR WOULD WE GO?
When I am told it would be unthinkable for a government, ours, Israel or anyone to kill the 3000 dead from 9/11 I simply remind them that
we killed 5000 Americans in Iraq based on a known scam. If you can kill 5000, you will do anything. Credibility is dead. Phony terrorists
were arrested and locked up, tortured for years, some simply picked up off the streets, others bought from drug gangs, many others simply had
names that we spelled wrong. Protecting America from terror during the Bush years was handled with less reality than professional
If the wiretapping was illegal and the torture illegal and the invasion of Iraq was illegal, how many laws would we violate, how many
would we kill and for what reasons? With no news anyone can trust and a government that simply makes things up, everything is conspiracy
theory, especially anything the government or corporate news spews.

Generations of Americans have lived through seeing enemies “branded” like we were selling soap. First America supported
Hitler, financing him to the hilt, guiding him in his war on the Jews and pushing his suppression of communists. Then he became an
“evil doer” and had to die. He had been the darling of the American right, veterans organizations and industrialists, for awhile
at least. Hitler is only one of the murderous dictators that America supported. Some we stuck with to the end, others like Saddam or
Noriega, we hunted down when they became “inconvenient” or threatened to open their mouths.
When the Taliban were the Mujaheddin, they were our friends. Did they become enemies because bin Laden lived there or because they ended
all opium production? I think our Marjeh operation answers that one pretty well. Photos of the region show a strange things. Marjeh, as
described, doesn’t seem to exist. When our victory involves handing out cash, have we, perhaps, broadened the definition of that term a bit much.
Col. Ghulam Sakhi, an Afghan National Police commander here, says his informants have told him that at
least 30 Taliban have come to one Marine outpost here to take money from the Marines as compensation for property damage or family members
killed during the operation in February.
“You shake hands with them, but you don’t know they are Taliban,” Colonel Sakhi said. “They have the same
clothes, and the same style. And they are using the money against the Marines. They are buying I.E.D.’s and buying ammunition,
I think of the stress the press goes through suppressing the videos of dead children and destroyed schools in Gaza.
“Branding” Palestinians as terrorists and Israelis as victims is turning into an almost impossible task, nearly as impossible as
keeping the lid on 9/11 or inventing Iran’s nuclear program. Only a few weeks ago, we were busy telling the world how Pakistan’s
nuclear weapons were ready to be seized by terrorists. What happened to that story? Where do the “fairy tales” of the
mainstream news go when they get so ridiculous that they become an embarrassment?
