Our Response to Susan Brooks Regarding the Feb 27 Congressional Hearing on Measles.

Indiana for Medical Freedom would like to address the recent statement posted by Congresswoman Susan Brooks who is part of the committee that held a hearing on Feb 27 titled “Confronting a Growing Public Health Threat: Measles Outbreaks in the U.S.”

“Measles is a highly contagious, airborne virus that can lead to serious respiratory illnesses and can become life-threatening. Just this year, there have been reports of 127 individual measles cases throughout 10 states. In 2018, the United States had 17 outbreaks with a total of 372 measles cases. Indiana has been fortunate and has not had any cases reported this year, but #Hoosiers still run the risk of being exposed to such a disease. Measles vaccines have saved more than 20 million lives throughout the world since 2000. This morning, I’m participating in a #SubOversight hearing at Energy & Commerce Committee Republicansfocusing on measles outbreaks in our country.

During the hearing, Dr. Anthony Fauci, lied to the committee members with his statement that the MMR vaccine cannot cause brain inflammation, encephalitis, when questioned by the Kentucky congressman.  His colleague quickly corrected him, after the audience groaned in disbelief, to say that the measles vaccine can cause brain encephalitis but very rarely. She said talk to your physician about whether your child is at risk for a vaccine reaction as the solution. How many convention pediatricians screen all their child patients to determine if the child will have an adverse reaction to a vaccine??? HOW MANY? Has your conventional pediatrician ever done testing to determine if your day-old infant is going to have a bad reaction to the Hepatitis B vaccine due to an underlying genetic or medical condition? Pediatricians are not screening kids to see if they are at risk for vaccine injury. That is NOT happening even though it was claimed to be happening by a witness at the hearing.

What is happening is a slew of vaccine injured children around the world. Cases where the parents are told that “some kids are just delayed” even though the child clearly had a regression of skills versus a delay. Or parents are told that their normal healthy child that suddenly regressed after a round of vaccines was just born that way and the parents never noticed it before. 

Here is a link to the MMR vaccine insert with the listed side effects:


In case Congresswoman Brooks is unfamiliar with vaccine injuries, here is a link to the vaccine adverse episode reporting system.  Through the vaccine injury compensation fund, the government has paid out over $4 billion dollars in tax payor funded monies to compensate those who were injured or killed by vaccines. For those with children killed by vaccines, the maximum payout is $250,000 (then subtract your attorney fees for the years and years of long fighting it takes to get that payment). Is your child’s life only worth $250,000? Apparently, the US government thinks so.

Here is a list of the injuries filed in the past few months dated in December, 2018. There are several listed injuries of paralysis caused by vaccines such as transverse myelitis (TM).

In fact, the government holds so little value on your and your children’s lives, that Congress passed the 1986 Childhood Vaccine Safety Act
(there’s nothing safe about it) This law gives full immunity to the big pharma companies that make vaccines from any damage the vaccines cause. If the vaccines are so SAFE AND EFFECTIVE as stated over and over, then why did the vaccine makers demand immunity from lawsuits over vaccine injury? It was because so many people were being harmed by vaccines and suing, that the pharma companies said unless they were shielded from future lawsuits by the government, they would have to stop making vaccines. Since that law was enacted, we cannot hold vaccine makers liable for their vaccine injuries. Vaccines are not classified as drugs and do not receive the same rigorous safety testing as drugs. They are liability free products with little safety testing. Congress has failed to do any vaccine safety studies in over 30 years. The law requires them to do annual safety tests, and through a freedom of information act request, it was discovered they have never done one safety study. All they do is help promote the scientifically unsupported mantra of “SAFE AND EFFECTIVE”.


VACCINES ARE NOT SAFE, and their efficacy is in question in a current lawsuit due to accusations of scientific fraud brought forward by a whistleblower.

BUT the adverse reactions to vaccines are very rare right??? The MMR insert clearly states that encephalitis is reported approximately once for every 3 million doses of the MMR vaccine. That does sound rare. Except that the British Medical Journal has an article stating that less than 1% of adverse reactions to vaccines are reported.  That means that 99% of adverse reactions to vaccine are not reported. Many medical professions just won’t report vaccine reactions.


How about the picture CNN posted of the baby with a
vaccine reaction rash that they tried to use to scare parents of what a baby with a horrible measles rash looks like. This poor baby did not have measles, the unnecessary suffering was caused by vaccination.

Then there is the case of the CDC whistleblower, Dr. William Thompson. In 2015, Dr. Thompson was recorded stating that he and the rest of his CDC team took part in scientific fraud regarding the MMR vaccine and autism. The team got to together and threw data in the trash that showed an increased in autism in children after receiving the MMR vaccine. The increase was very statistically significant with the highest rate occurring among African American boys. Here is a link to the 10,000 documents that Dr. Thompson has issued to Congress to back up his claims. He has official whistleblower status under the law. Only Congress can supeona him under the law, and Congress has refused to hear his testimony.

Susan Brooks, as a member of Congress, why do you feel it’s important to only hear from pro-pharma witnesses who lie to you, but REFUSE to hear testimony from a CDC scientist who has evidence that the government covered up the vaccine-autism connection? The rates of autism are skyrocketing at epidemic proportions. Why do you feel 127 cases of measles in a county of about 325,000,000 people is more important than hearing a CDC scientist who could possibly stop autism with his evidence??? The rate of autism is now 1 in 36 kids. 1 in 20 kids under the age of 5 have a seizure disorder, a side effect listed on the vaccine inserts.  Is that not more concerning to you? 1 in 36 kids will have a lifelong disability that often renders them unable to care for themselves as adults, but 127 measles cases with no deaths and full recovery of those who caught it is your national emergency!!!  At what point does common sense become common again?

Maybe when Congress will take action to repeal the 1986 Childhood Vaccine Safety Act and return liability for unsafe products to the vaccine makers. As it stands now, the government seems to be doing anything to avoid allowing the link between vaccines and injuries to be exposed. The tax payors don’t have enough money to fund the additional BILLIONS it would take to pay for people stricken with injuries from vaccines.

This is too expensive for the truth to be allowed to come out, UNLESS Congress will put the liability back on ultra-rich pharmaceutical companies who could afford to pick up the tab of vaccine induced brain damage. And maybe, just maybe if pharmaceutical companies were held liable for their unsafe vaccines, they would have an incentive to make vaccines that didn’t harm babies and little kids. Although if VIOXX is any indication of how they continue to do business, I wouldn’t hold your breath on that.

Dr. Thompson has yet to get his day in court due to inaction of Congress, but we do have the information about Dr. Zimmerman, a well-respected neurologist. See the quote from Sheryl Atkinson’s story she did including Dr. Zimmerman’s case.

“Dr. Zimmerman the government’s top expert witness and had testified that vaccines didn’t cause autism. The debate was declared over…..But now Dr. Zimmerman has provided remarkable new information. He claims that during the vaccine hearings all those years ago, he privately told government lawyers that vaccines can and did cause autism in some children. That turnabout from the government’s own chief medical expert stood to change everything about the vaccine-autism debate”

If pharmaceutical companies have so much extra money sitting around that they can afford to donate hundreds of thousands to politicians, maybe it’s time to give liability for vaccine injury back to those companies. They seem like they can afford to pay compensation.

One thought on “Our Response to Susan Brooks Regarding the Feb 27 Congressional Hearing on Measles.”

  1. Check out the Bloomington Herald-Times 3/4 Guest Column “Parents bear responsibility for outbreaks” by Jagdish Khubchandani, with the college of health at Ball State. He is advocating charging anti vax parents with criminal neglect! It would be nice if someone in your group could write a rebuttal. Thanks for the work you do in this important cause, Crystal Cartmell
