Breaking: CDC whistleblower Thompson in grave danger now

Breaking: CDC whistleblower Thompson in grave danger now

(Note: All posts related to this story are archived here under #Vaccinegate.)

William W Thompson, PhD…the CDC whistleblower…was escorted off the premises of the CDC campus yesterday afternoon. This is what a source has just told me.

Therefore, the CDC knows Thompson is the whistleblower.

He’s in danger.

I’ve also been told that the Autism Media Channel (, which had posted the video revealing Thompson’s name and outing him, is gone. The site is suddenly gone. (AMC’s documentary video is here on — entitled “CDC Whistleblower revealed”).

Threats of various kinds, at the very least, will now be applied to Thompson. Legal action, perhaps arrest, perhaps worse.

When it comes to vaccines and protecting that empire, the games are very serious. Deadly serious. The gloves come off.

People have to understand this, if Thompson disappears or shows up dead “as a suicide.”

Since Thompson isn’t, as of this moment, stepping forward himself to provide full disclosure on his past actions, and since his name is already out there….the best protection he has is other people.

Other people making his name and his dangerous situation known. That has to happen now.

William W Thompson, PhD

William W Thompson, PhD — via ‘Google Scholar’ search.

Prior to this morning, Thompson had been standing in the shadows as an anonymous source, admitting that he cooked data to hide a connection between autism and the MMR vaccine.

Now other things are known. In 2007, he published a study on the effects of mercury (thimerosal) on babies and very young children—and he concluded that there were both positive and negative effects, but the effects on both sides were very small.

The study was used by the press and the government to trumpet the idea (the lie) that everybody could rest easy; vaccines containing mercury weren’t harming anyone.

Now, this, too, comes under scrutiny. If Thompson was lying about the MMR vaccine, did he also lie about mercury and its toxic effects? Did he intentionally underplay those effects? Did he cook the data in that study, too?

Thompson has been working at NCIR, the CDC’s National Center for Immunizations and Respiratory Diseases—until yesterday.

NCIR includes, in its mission statement, the following: “prevention of disease, disability, and death through immunization…” In other words, it’s a PR agency that promotes vaccines. Actual science about vaccine dangers would be cut off at the pass.

Thompson is looked at as a threat to this agenda.

His unwillingness to come all the way forward, speak his name, tell the whole truth has boomeranged on him. Predictable.

Psychiatric detention and drugging, threats of lawsuits for violating “confidentiality agreements,” arrest, “you’ll never get a job again,” and “sudden suicide” are all possibilities.

Shining a very bright light on Thompson and his situation is his best hope now.

    Thimerosal has been used as a preservative in vaccines since the 1930s. It is 49.6% mercury by weight and is metabolized into ethyl mercury and thiosalicylate.1 In 1999, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) estimated that infants who were immunized according to the recommended schedule could receive amounts of mercury exceeding the limits set by the Environmental Protection Agency for exposure to methyl mercury.2 As a precautionary measure, the Public Health Service and the American Academy of Pediatrics urged vaccine manufacturers to remove thimerosal from all infant vaccines as soon as was practical and recommended that studies be carried out to understand better the risks associated with mercury exposure from thimerosal-containing vaccines.3 In response, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) performed an analysis using computerized databases from three large health maintenance organizations (HMOs).4 Increasing exposure to mercury was associated with a greater likelihood of tics in one HMO population and language delay in another; in the third HMO, no significant associations were found.

    Our study was designed to assess more rigorously the relationship between mercury exposure from thimerosal and neuropsychological functioning in a manner similar to that of previous studies of prenatal exposure to methyl mercury.5,6 Our study improved on previous thimerosal studies by enrolling children on the basis of thimerosal exposure, independent of health status; prospectively assessing neuropsychological functioning independently of exposure and health care–seeking behavior; and collecting extensive information on potential confounders, including medical history and socioeconomic and educational factors that could influence a child’s health and development.

      Thanks to Dr Thompson. The lies have been going on too long. I got my child vaccinated and also did not follow the schedule recommended. I felt my child was too young for all those recommended shots and also they wanted to give too many shots at one time. Thanks to the reporter who broke this story. Stay safe Dr Thompson the country needs you. Think of the lawsuits that could be filed as a result of the truth getting out. In the end it’s all about money and not the welfare of children. Get the money no matter the cost.

    Reblogged this on Laura Bruno's Blog and commented:
    “Shining a very bright light on Thomspon and his situation is his best hope now.” William W. Thompson is the recently outed CDC whistleblower who admitted to the CDC’s fraudulent coverup of vaccines’ connections to autism. Like Edward Snowden, Bradley (now Chelsea) Manning and other truth tellers, Thompson now joins the ranks of people who’ve raised the ire of the BigPharmafia and the military industrial complex. Please send prayers and protective energy his way, as well as spreading the word about what he has revealed. You can find more details on Jon Rappoport’s site. He has published several back to back articles about a mysterious CDC whistleblower. Now we know who he is and that his claims are being taken as a threat by the CDC.

    “In this study there is nothing you can draw on regarding any relationship to autism,” researcher William W. Thompson, PhD, of the CDC’s National Immunization Program, said at a news conference.”


  7. bjacob says:

    Thought he began to disclose some information? This affects the most vulnerable who cannot speak for themselves. Protect the man and uncover the truth.

  8. bettwice33 says:

    As usual, there is no whistleblower. This is just another bit of psychological warfare designed to make the whole autism community look foolish, especially Brian Hooker.

    As we all should know, there was zero autism in MS, NH and D.C. until 1991. If the MMR caused autism, it would have caused some autism in these places in the 20 years that it had been used up to this time.

    We also know that mercury causes autism in 5 times as many boys as girls which jives with this study claiming to affect black males. The study did NOT look at how much mercury these boys had received before they received the MMR shot. It only talks about the age that the MMR vaccine was given. If the study HAD looked at mercury doses, I suspect it would have found that these boys had received plenty of mercury, especially since some of the years included happened after the advent of the HepB on the day of birth which was the single most important factor in causing the autism epidemic. The HepB was the thing that started causing autism in MS, NH and D.C. in 1991, where no autism had previously existed.
    I hate to conclude that Brian Hooker has been corrupted but perhaps he has been fooled. Our 100% corrupt government would certainly go to great lengths to discredit someone with Brian’s reputation.

    Perhaps he will consider my words here and rethink his support for this obviously bogus garbage from an alleged whistleblower.

    • SamAdamsGhost says:

      Hmmmm . . . I don’t quite know what to think at this point. Need more evidence.

      Why is this man a Phd in Psychology, rather than an M.D. or someone with a degree in a hard bio science ?

      • A PhD in Psychology from in a very research-heavy program would qualify him to design and oversee research studies. That skill set is about research design, methods, and statistical analysis. That’s why there are multiple researchers involved with any large study, multiple names listed on the academic article generated, as well as the myriad names that are not listed. It takes a lot of people to do a study like this, of which he was just one. Since he’s listed as a Senior researcher at the CDC, and the studies that he’s been involved in are all over the map, it’s logical to conclude that he specializes in research design, methods, and statistical analysis. Hope this helps. 🙂

    • 2015 says:

      That would not necessarily work to the disadvantage of the whistleblower or to that of Hooker. The data on age of onset is still highly significant for anyone looking into the causative role that mercury may have played in autism.

      Why would the CDC have allowed Thompson to play fast with the information on age studies, when that information so obviously leads one to reconsider mercury as a cause of autism?

      Would releasing some information now really be to the advantage of Big Pharma, especially when the information is so closely related to the facts which you cite above?

    • Ann Benson says:

      Hep B shot at birth causes Autism? What? All those that give this shot should be in jail. Thanks for the information? Are you a researcher?

    • Carolyn Bailey says:

      Zero autism in NH until 1991, bettwice33? Since autism wasn’t named as a distinct syndrome and written up till 1989, the absence of earlier diagnoses would be no surprise, but only the normal rate of dissemination of health info. The symptoms were noted earlier in public school children in NH, as can be seen in the numbers of kids in Special Education with those symptoms before 1991 and the percentage of them who were eventually diagnosed with new label, autism. In 1993, when I started working in NH schools, I met many high school students diagnosed with autism. Are you claiming they didn’t have it in, say, 1992 or 1982, although they were born in 1977? The Special Ed teachers and their families say they’d had those symptoms from an early age; they didn’t appear out of nowhere when the kids entered high school.

      There is a huge difference between ‘no autism in existence’ and ‘no reports of autism’. You must be looking at the latter. Be more careful what you present as fact, especially when you claim that ‘everybody knows it’ (a figure of speech that, taken literally, is itself not true but is used in an attempt to convince others to believe a questionable assertion).

    You were the catalyst for this breaking Jon, so many blessings to you and Mr Thompson for his safety.

    Astonishing. I am doing all I can. Great work. Keep reporting!!

  11. Pray William W Thompson, PhD…the CDC whistleblower safe return.

    Pray whistle blowers step forward en masse.


  12. Scary!! They will go to no end to silence the truth. Thanks for the report.

  13. waynesalhany says:

    The good doctor is no Edward Snowden. E.S. was proactive and got ahead of the repressive system. The system got wind of Dr. T’s intentions and made the first move. Very bad for Dr. T. He had better put his PHD to work and figure out the truth, whatever that may be. Everybody needs to wise up. Can you tell which side is which?

  14. Henry says:

    People should call the CDC and let them know that if anything happens to Dr. Thompson, the public will know the CDC did it.

    Health care professionals should call and let the CDC know what it is like to be lied to by the CDC and because of those lies, to be complicit in damaging children.

    Parents should call letting the CDC know what they think of them and their beyond evil lies to parents who were trying their damnedest to protect their children.

    The CDC switchboard needs to be flooded.

    But there are more choices that fit.

    Poison Control Centers: 1-800-222-1222
    Bio-terrorism Division: 1-404-639-0385
    National Center for Environmental Health: 1-770-488-7100

    The CDC needs to know that people see what they have done and are watching them now. They need to know the country applauds Thompson and will not accept as real any media reports of his mental illness or any retraction by him or his “suicide.”

  15. William says:

    I called the CDC and expressed total outrage that the CDC has been damaging children for years and knows it. The person who answered, a black woman, didn’t even know what had happened so I gave her your website so she can find out more and also share with CDC people as well as the black community.

    Everyone should call. Those working there need to know how rotten things are and how the public feels. They have no idea of what is going on but there’s no way they would like it.

    These articles are useful.
    What’s wrong with the CDC? (Their history and horrible connections.)

    CDC schedule (ALL the mandated vaccines include a sterilizing agent listed as a preferred ingredient in a pharma patent for a “fertility impairing vaccine.”

    And then there’s this, which shows the CDC stonewalling on mercury in vaccines for 7 years, not responding to FOIAs, and then in being sued for the information, even refusing at first to hand it over to federal court, and then Obama’s response.

    The Vaccine Hoax Is Over

    Wow! Thank you for sharing this information. We just got back from a camping trip with my parents in which we attempted to discuss whistleblowing. My dad was adamant that unless one is willing to accept the legal consequences of their actions, there is no heroism in whistleblowing. Though, this was among many stifled conversations in which even the discussion if differing opinions was shut down. More of my story:

  21. Liz Fenimore says:

    with all these scientists/researchers responding, i am wondering if we still read the “party line” here? what can you honestly say to the plethora of parents who deal with the after effects of Big Pharma… specifically, their vaccine-injured children?
    i am 60.
    when i was young, we received vaccines on a much slower schedule. nowadays, they pump multiple vaccines on a much tighter schedule; seems to me this might overload some children…i know with my grandson, there was an obvious connection to the time he received his first immunization to the onset of what we now know as his autism.
    i really do not care about the research at this point – like i said, it was an obvious observation.
    i lose a lot of respect when people try to talk to me about autism and vaccines if they themselves have not experienced it in some way.

  22. Reblogged this on The Hunt FOR Truth and commented:
    Brian Hooker, PhD, PE, described by Forbes magazine as a “vaccine industry watchdog,” unlished a reanalysis of the data published by the CDC in 2004. The analysis reveals what the CDC has known since then, getting the MMR “on time” results in a greater than threefold increase in the risk that a male child of African descent will develop regressive autism.

  23. Pure Angel says:

    Although I could not convince my family not to get my grandson vaccinated, they at least let me intervene when it was time for the MMR shot. I went with my daughter and spoke with the pediatrician about giving my grandson those 3 shots separately, and not all in one dose at one time, due to my concerns. He agreed, and my grandson got those 3 spread out and not at the same time. I hope that helped, but who can know. If it were me, I would do everything I could to avoid vaccinations for my children, but many are so blinded and have become the “sheeple” of the medical establishment and pHARMaceutical companies. If only they would do their due diligence. After all, as parents, we need to arm ourselves with information as knowledge is powerful. There is no way we can expect the pHARMaceutical companies to protect us and keep us safe. I was harmed by Vioxx, a recalled drug made by Merck & Co. purported to have killed 60,000 and damaged many more like me. Merck KNEW what it was doing, but profit prevailed as it’s always about money and greed and buying people off.
