“The better you see the game, the less likely that suppression will work.”

Catherine Austin Fitts interviews Jon Rappoport

Vaccine Linked to Autism

The suppression backfired. Instead, coverage of the documentary exploded, in no small part thanks to Robert De Niro’s courageous interviews calling for an open discussion of the issues.

Jon Rappoport of No More Fake News shares his views about stories of suppression and heroes who outwit it. Jon informs us that, the better you see the game, the less likely that suppression will work.

Rappoport has worked as an investigative reporter for 20 years, and is the author of five books. He has written on medical fraud, deep politics, and health issues for newspapers and magazines in the US and Europe, including CBS Healthwatch, Spin, Stern and LA Weekly. The LA Weekly placed Jon's name in nomination for a Pulitzer Prize, for his interview with the president of Salvador University, where a military takeover had occurred.

VAXXED: From Cover Up to Catastrophe is a documentary alleging that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the government agency charged with protecting the health of American citizens, destroyed data on their 2004 study that allegedly showed a link between the MMR vaccine and autism.

Interviews with pharmaceutical insiders, doctors, politicians, and parents of vaccine-injured children reveal an alarming deception that quite possibly, has contributed to the skyrocketing increase of autism.

Photo of Del Bigtree, producer of VaxxedRappoport shares, “The other day, I spent a couple of hours with Del Bigtree, the producer of Vaxxed, in San Diego, and we had an interesting conversation. He left a mainstream television show as producer of The Doctors, and although he didn’t fill me in on the details, I figured out that some story came up that he wanted to put on the air, and he began looking into it. He was shocked, and he didn’t want to air it conventionally, because he saw a deeper truth. This recognition led to events that I assume resulted in his quitting the show.

“Then he started looking into the CDC whistleblower, William Thompson, who confessed in writing two years ago that he and his colleagues at the CDC, had committed scientific fraud in a study of the MMR vaccine – measles, mumps, and rubella. They gave the vaccine a free pass, and said it had nothing to do with autism when the data showed that it did. That’s what the film is about.

“So Del decided that he would go for the big-time. He was going to get a theatrical release out of this story, and not just put it up on YouTube. Through a series of remarkable events, the CDC threw various front groups to get the film cancelled at Tribeca Film Festival.

“De Niro’s production partner, Jane Rosenthal, who is one of the cofounders of Tribeca, was the conduit. De Niro temporarily folded up under pressure, and said he was going to cancel the film. Then he went on television, doing interviews, when suddenly he woke up and said, ‘People have to see this film. It’s very important, even though we’re not showing it at the film festival.’

“So in this case, censorship and suppression worked backwards, worked against the people who tried to suppress the story, because that story of suppression became the primary story. So everybody now wants to see the film. It’s playing to packed houses all over the country, the producer and the director are doing Q&As after showings, and people are streaming into the theaters to see it.

“It was also suppressed in Houston at a big film festival because the mayor’s office said, ‘We’re going to remove funding from the film festival unless you stop this.’

“It was also playing somewhere in Arizona at two theaters in the same town. One theater suppressed it because a university in the town got to the theater owner and said, ‘Don’t show this,’ so he didn’t. But the other theater did, and, of course, the film played to packed houses. So sometimes suppression works against you.”

Rappoport continued, “I saw a De Niro interview that was quite fantastic. The interviewer at one point threw in the usual question, ‘But don’t you think that if parents see the film, they might be misled into not vaccinating their children…’ He said, ‘No. That’s not the story. There’s more to it than that.’ He talked about the profits of the pharmaceutical companies, and then De Niro said to the interviewer, ‘You guys are the media. You’re supposed to be investigating this.’”

For many, it’s hard to understand how suppression of medical knowledge has become this bad. We are now experiencing an epidemic in autism, and it’s a real epidemic, particularly among boys. In the previously mentioned interview, De Niro recommended a documentary called Trace Amounts: Autism, Mercury and The Hidden Truth – the true story of Eric Gladen’s painful journey through mercury poisoning that he believes resulted from a thimerosal-loaded tetanus shot. His discoveries led him on a quest for the scientific truth about the role of mercury poisoning in the autism epidemic.

Due in part to documentaries addressing suppression, more and more people feel that they cannot trust anything the medical establishment tells them about vaccines.

“The corner has been turned here. Something has really happened in recent months. People whose stories were never believed before are being believed now. It’s mainly the mothers of children. A mother has a happy, healthy child. She vaccinates, and the child is never the same again. She says, ‘This is what happened.’ There isn’t any question about it. It’s not like there’s room to debate, and there are untold numbers of mothers around the country, around the world, who have experienced this. Now they’re starting to believe for the first time that this is real,” said Rappoport.

CDC Stopped Counting Swine Flu Cases

Photo of investigative reporter Sharyl AttkissonAnother illustration of suppression features investigative reporter, Sharyl Attkisson. Rappoport explains, “Sharyl was working for CBS as a star investigative reporter. She was really its sole investigative reporter, and she’s very good. In late summer/early fall of 2009, at the height of the supposed swine flu epidemic, she discovered that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), had stopped counting cases in America and had not told anybody that it stopped. Well, counting is the job of CDC. That’s what it does – it issues reports on numbers of cases of disease and how many people die and all that, but it quietly stopped counting.

“Sharyl tried to find out why, and discovered that the blood samples from the most likely swine flu cases sent to labs were overwhelmingly coming back with no sign of swine flu or any other kind of flu. So now the CDC was in a panic because it had announced thousands of cases of swine flu in America, and had nothing to back itself up with. They couldn’t find any cases. So she published the story on a CBS news website, and her editor told her, ‘Great story! Fabulous! Best thing I’ve seen on swine flu. Let’s get it on the nightly news,’ meaning the national CBS nightly news.

“At first it looked good. Then all of a sudden the story got shut down – totally shut down. It was not to be shown or told. No matter what Sharyl did or said, they could not get it on the nightly news.

“Well, you can imagine why. If the media started to break this story to the mass audience in America, the entire vaccine establishment would be exposed in a way as never exposed before.

“Three weeks after the article by Sharyl was published on the CBS news website, the CDC came out to estimate that the United States had 22 million cases of swine flu.

“I’ve told this story before, and I’ve written about it before, and I know that many people read it, but it just does not register for them. People draw a total blank. This lack of register is part of how suppression works. When the crime is so huge, and the whole thing so ridiculous, as in this case, people can’t absorb it. They can’t take it in. It’s just too much.”

Photo of researcher Royal Raymond RifeCancer Cure Suppressed Since The 1930s?

Another example of suppression involves a man named Royal Raymond Rife. In the 1930s, he claimed that a beam ray device of his invention could weaken or destroy the pathogens by energetically exciting destructive resonances in their constituent chemicals. Interest in Rife was revived in the 1980s by author Barry Lynes, who wrote a book about Rife titled The Cancer Cure That Worked: 50 Years of Suppression. The book claimed that Rife's beam ray device could cure cancer, but that all mention of his discoveries was suppressed by a wide-ranging conspiracy headed by the American Medical Association. It’s interesting to think that we spent decades using microscopes that would only look at dead cells as opposed to microscopes that could look at living cells.

Rappoport states, “His theory was that certain types of germs caused cancer, and he found frequencies that could destroy the germs. You could see it happening through the microscope. Then the official suppression process turned Rife’s research all around, and it denied the stories of healing. The media were told to destroy the guy completely. His ruin was just mind-boggling.

“People have made efforts to reproduce the microscope, but I haven’t seen any convincing evidence that anyone has done so. His machines, which I saw pictures of in newspaper articles, were amazing.”

On Trial: Advancing Healthcare

Photo of Dr. William Koch“There was another man, Dr. William Koch, around the same time in the Midwest, and he came up with a homeopathic medicine that he called Glyoxylide. He was curing some cancer patients. I found a statement from the Congressional Record, based on an article in a US magazine that detailed some of this story, especially the fact that he had used his formula to treat farm animals in Michigan. Canadian farmers were champing at the bit for this treatment for their own animals. They were outraged that they had to wait, and the US government was interceding with regulations to keep this medicine from use.

“Koch was put on trial three times for medical fraud, but in no case was he found guilty. Eventually he left the United States and moved down to South America, where he practiced medicine until he died. From what I can see, his notes and papers have been destroyed. The formula has been destroyed,” said Rappoport.

The Claim Of Curing Incurable Disease

Photo of Dr. Samir ChachouaStill another instance of healthcare suppression relates to Samir "Sam" Chachoua – an Australian alternative medicine practitioner. Chachoua offers treatments in Mexico that he claims to be effective alternative medicine vaccine therapies for cancer and HIV, among other diseases. His treatments depend on theories he has named, including "Induced Remission Therapy" and "The Nemesis Theory" – "For every disease there is an anti-disease organism capable of destroying it and restoring health." He asserts that a vaccine exists as does an effective therapy against cancer and other diseases with almost no side effects, and that these vaccines were created and tested over thirty years and have received registration in several countries around the world.

Rappoport shares, “I was tuning into Bill Maher’s show one night – just clicking around, and there was Maher sitting talking with Sam. Maher was just straight ahead, ‘So this is what you were able to do?’ Sam said, ‘Yes, I was able to cure this and cure that. I was connected with UCLA, which was sponsoring my research. Then all of a sudden, everybody turned against me. One thing led to another, and I had to flee.’ Maher said, ‘I know I’m going to get all kinds of people screaming at me for even sitting down and talking to you, but isn’t it true that breakthroughs like this are made by one person, not committees?’ Sam said, ‘Absolutely.’ A day later, it was as if the interview never happened. There were no stories in the press about it, that’s for sure.”

Energy From Armouring

Photo of Wilhelm ReichThere’s the story of Wilhelm Reich, an Austrian psychoanalyst, whose idea of muscular armour – the expression of the personality in the way the body moves, shaped innovations such as body psychotherapy, Gestalt therapy, bioenergetic analysis and primal therapy.

“He was originally a student of Freud and decided that the human problem was an energy problem – that people were being blocked off from their own basic energies, which could be seen as blue plumes of energy that radiate from the body.

“Reich devised a very simple and very challenging kind of therapy that would eventually release what he called the ‘armouring’ of the physical body, and this energy would then flow out.

“Eventually he was arrested by the Federal government for supposedly transporting or selling these devices across state lines. Some petty idea was behind it. He was totally mystified. He said, ‘This has nothing to do with the law or politics; I’m doing science.’ There are rumors that he was killed. But his work was phenomenal work,” said Rappoport.

The GMO Science Battle

Photo of Bertram VerhaagThen there’s the suppression of GMO information to consider: Bertram Verhaag has a great series of documentaries on GMOs. In one called Scientists Under Attack, Jeffrey Smith was featured, who wrote, Seeds of Deception and Genetic Roulette: The Documented Health Risks of Genetically Engineered Foods. William Engdahl also wrote a GMO book titled, Seeds of Destruction: The Hidden Agenda of Genetic Manipulation that reveals how a small socio-political American elite seeks to establish its control over the very basis of human survival – our food, and exposes a world of profit-driven political intrigue, government corruption and coercion, where genetic manipulation and the patenting of life forms are used to gain worldwide control over food production.

Rappoport explains, “I started to look into how GMO crops were certified as being okay, which first happened in America in 1996 or thereabouts. When I finally went to the FDA, it told me, ‘It’s not our responsibility. The corporations vouch for the safety and the equivalence of genetically modified food to ordinary food.’

“Then I could go to Monsanto, and it would say, ‘Well, the FDA approved it. There’s nothing for us to say about it because the government thinks it’s okay.’

“That was the basis for approval of GMO products. So when all of these scientists get up on their hind legs and say, ‘Well, the studies show GMO is safe and effective, etc.’ they’re just lying through their teeth. There is no science at all. It was just a handshake, a deal, and all of a sudden this stuff spreads everywhere. Now people are fighting against it, and many countries have limited it, banned it, and outlawed it. The United States dwells in a bubble where people still believe ‘science’ that says GMO is safe, and the dissident truth is suppressed on all sides.

“The suppression of truth took a blow when a year or so ago the World Health Organization declared glyphosate a probable carcinogen. Of course, that’s the major ingredient in Roundup, and that’s the pesticide you need for weeds. In fact, Roundup is what many of the crops are engineered to resist. And it’s all spelled out very neatly, ‘Oh, yes. This is perfect science. You spread this pesticide all over your farm, and it will kill the weeds, but it won’t kill the crops.’

“So the result is that US farmers have millions of acres of gigantic weeds that they haven’t picked by hand anymore because the pesticide is supposed to kill them, but the weeds are resistant, and the weeds keep growing. They destroy the farm, destroy the livelihood of the farmer, and Monsanto keeps saying, ‘Not a problem. Everything is fine. Don’t worry about it.’”

Regarding the battle against suppression, Rappoport concludes, “Anybody who goes after the truth is going to find very positive things happening. It’s not all, ‘Oh, well, I exposed the truth so now there are thousands of people who are after me,’ and so forth. Things are breaking out into a new direction here, and they have been for years because the passing of the ball is happening at a tremendous rate. We’re not the Cold War or the 1930s; our world is different, and so many people are joining, and the movement is becoming a tremendous, positive thing. It’s an invitation to anyone who wants to join the party.”
