Leid Stories – For the Clintons, Education Pays, And Pays, And Pays – 07.07.16

Within minutes of FBI Director James Comey’s announcement yesterday that the agency’s probe of Hillary Clinton’s email/private server/classified information debacle found no evidence of criminal conduct, the presumptive Democratic Party presidential nominee was back on campaign schedule, keynoting a National Education Association event in Washington, D.C., touting her pro-education policies and tearing into Donald Trump’s education agenda.

Trump University, the real estate mogul’s unaccredited, lawsuit-plagued for-profit education company that went belly up in 2010 after five years, came in for blistering attack by Clinton as a harbinger of what a Trump presidency would mean for education: the ultraprivatization of education, the end of “education as we know it.”

Clinton and her husband Bill have traveled this path and have made millions of dollars from it, says our guest, journalist and author Dady Chery, who has chronicled the Clintons’ sordid history of plunder in Haiti. She adds yet another chapter to the Leid Stories series on the Clinton Foundation and its interconnected global subsidiaries that Charles Ortel, the whistleblower who brought down GE in 2007-2008 over the overvaluation of its stock, maintains are engaged in “massive fraud.”

Chery explains the Clintons’ role in one of the biggest scams in higher education—a Wall Street-backed company called Laureate Education.

Fearless Parent Radio – HPV Vaccination Whistleblower – 01.27.16

Since the HPV vaccine was introduced to the public in 2006, it has been surrounded in controversy:

conspicuously fast tracked by the FDA;
speedily endorsed by the CDC;
rapidly introduced to be mandated by nearly every state in the US;
unusually challenged by some of the media and medical establishment, including the New England Journal of Medicine, the New York Times, and even one of its inventors;
hailed by Pharmaceutical Executive magazine as “brand of the year” for its innovative and breakthrough marketing savvy;
so aggressively promoted by Merck that Gardasil sales exploded, far eclipsing its flagship Measles, Mumps and Rubella II vaccine and bailing the company out of its staggering Vioxx litigation woes; and
so widely adopted that, today, approximately 60% of adolescent girls and 42% of adolescent boys have received the vaccine.
Time to add another bullet point to the above list…

On January 14, 2016, the activist blog SaneVax revealed the details of an open letter sent by Sin Hang Lee, MD to the World Health Organization claiming “manipulation of data and suppression of science in order to maintain the illusion of HPV vaccine safety in the face of valid contradictory evidence.”

Valerie Borek, Esq interviews SaneVax chief Norma Erickson about the stunning allegations:

Who is Dr. Lee and why/how is he in a position to make these statements?
What, exactly, did he say?
What are the policy implications of this announcement?
What has been the response of medical and government authorities?
Is the HPV vaccine safe? What should parents do?
