Merck, Huff Po, Vaxxed: The Censorship Connection

vaxxed-pulled-700x350By Jon Rappoport

Six steps to Huff Po blackout heaven

ONE: Recently, long-time blogger/columnist for the Huffington Post, Lance Simmens, wrote an article in which he made positive comments about the film, Vaxxed (trailer).

Simmens didn’t state that the MMR vaccine causes autism. He pointed out that Vaxxed is about a CDC whistleblower who admits to giving the MMR a free pass, who admits that he and his colleagues hid data that would have shown a connection between the vaccine and autism.

So Simmens wrote that Vaxxed is an important film, and the issue it raises needs to be investigated.

TWO: Huffington Post censored Simmens’ article. His account with Huff Po was blocked without explanation. He was shut out from posting more articles. Finally, someone named Stuart at Huff Po wrote him an absurd and irrelevant “explanation”:

Hi Lance, we’re going to have to pass on your latest post because it violates a long-standing policy we have against disseminating conspiracy theories and inaccurate medical information. In the case of your post specifically, it presents as credible a widely known and debunked hoax that vaccines cause autism. Please bear in mind that we reserve the right to remove any content from our site for any reason, and at any time.

THREE: The Huffington Post is owned by Verizon.

FOUR: On the Board of Verizon sits a man named Dr. Karl-Ludwig Kley.

FIVE: Kley was chairman of the executive board and chief executive officer of Merck KGaA (*) until April 2016. (* see End Note below)

SIX: Merck (*) manufactures the MMR vaccine, the subject of Vaxxed. (* see End Note below)

Got it?

But wait. There’s more.

In 2004, the CDC whistleblower featured in Vaxxed, Dr. William Thompson, alerted the head of the CDC, Julie Gerberding, that he had troubling and sensitive data in his hands about the MMR vaccine. Of course, Thompson was referring to the vaccine-autism connection.

Gerberding never replied to Thompson, who was about to make his findings public at a major conference. However, Thompson’s presentation was canceled.

Fast forward to 2009. Gerberding leaves the CDC. Later, she becomes the president of the vaccine division at Merck. Merck manufactures the MMR vaccine.

Nice work if she could get it, and she could.

*(End Note: Here is a more complete explanation of why the CEO of Merck KGaA, who sits on the board of Verizon, which in turns owns the Huffington Post, would be disturbed by a possible MMR vaccine scandal. Merck [U.S.] is a former subsidiary of Merck KGaA [Germany]. Merck—the MMR manufacturer—is an independent company—but how much stock in Merck does Merck KGaA still hold, and what other connections still exist? In fact, there is great sensitivity in both companies about the mutual use of the “Merck” name, and protracted legal battles have been fought to eliminate that overlap. It’s reasonable to assume that neither company is happy about scandals involving “the other Merck,” because of the public perception that the companies are one company. Read this, from FiercePharma: “An illustration of how confusing the names are to the outside world came in 2014 when a group showed up outside of the German company’s headquarters to protest Big Pharma’s lobbying against new generic drug rules in South Africa, designed to get cheap drugs to more patients. But German Merck [KGaA] was not involved in that effort. It was the U.S. company [Merck] that had supported it. But it has gotten trickier to keep the two companies separate as they vie for the Merck name in social media. A couple of years ago, Facebook got the companies confused and posted Merck & Co.’s new Facebook page at the same “Merck” location that had been used for Merck KGaA’s Facebook page. Eventually it was sorted out and now German Merck can be found at while Merck & Co. now sits at”)

  1. I lost faith in HP a long time ago. Just another mouthpiece and controlled media arm of the oligarchs. Absurd that they require a Facebook account to make comments.

  2. The pharmaceutical /chemical revolving door is EVERYWHERE ; all three branches of govt,all the alphabet agencies ,& the media; plus pharmaceuticals are the most lucrative investments to wealth. Another reason we will never hear the truth.
    Rupert Murdoch who owns about one third of all media outlets including his own satellites in space; owns much of CSL vaccine company in Australia.[a supplier of USA vaccines] He paid to test the H1N1 vaccine on pregnant women in 2009. There was a 700% increase in miscarriages from this vaccine in all trimesters. Ever since they have been pushing women to vaccinate while pregnant. Population control? The new Thalidimaide only the effects are miscarriage,infertility & internal birth defects instead of flippers?
    Even Murdoch’s son went to work as CEO of Pfizer the same year the head of CDC got her job at Merck after changing the criteria for world pandemic to sell more vaccines. 1.2 billion US taxpayer dollars going to fake ZIKA virus pandemic that has not even been proved to be the cause of the encephaletic babies. The more common cause of encephelitic disease is VACCINATIONS according to product package inserts. The areas with the most deformed babies were thye same areas where the new Panorex FIVE way vaccines are being given to

  3. This site keeps shutting me down mid sentence. What’s up with that?

    Notice the language is not backed up with anything substantial.
    Just ‘widely debunked’ – what a joke.
    Stuart must have been vaxxed – his remarks smack of autism.
    Moms – vaccines are poison and have never been proved to be a valid healthy science.
    see: nagalase,cas9/crispr, bacteriophage, ligends and dead human tissue used for the culture environment.

    BTW: Kley proves that media is all Kontrolled – on the vaccine board and the Huf Po pay roll.I doubt if
    he ends up in the unemployment lines.

    Speaking of censorship, I posted a comment on Rappoport’s blog critical of his “I identify as a horse” piece and he apparently
    decided to censor me and not post it, which is astonishing coming from
    him. Note that I emailed him about it and received no reply, and then
    posted it a second time and still it did not appear. This was over the
    course of a few days.
