Sunday on The Robert Scott Bell Show:
If autism is hereditary, then where are all the retirement homes full of autistic people? Nursing homes and retirement “villages” in America are chock full of elderly folks who are victims of brittle bones, dementia, strokes, heart attacks, osteoporosis, and severe arthritis. Yet, something is missing, and it’s more obvious than a trumpeting elephant in a small room full of people. Where are all the autistic senior citizens? Does the government ship them all off to some special island where it’s kept hush-hush and they receive all the special treatment they need? (Of course not…) Today’s medical “establishment” claims that most cases of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) are genetic, meaning inherited, but that would also mean that this generation’s grandparents and great-grandparents suffer from the same genetic disorders and dysfunctions as so many children do today. In fact, about one in every 50 children suffers from autism now. The hereditary autism theory just doesn’t add up. This requires careful consideration and analysis.

AHPA Comments re: Comments on International Drug Scheduling The American Herbal Products Association (“AHPA”) is the national trade association and voice of the herbal products industry. AHPA is comprised of domestic and foreign companies doing business as growers, collectors, processors, manufacturers, marketers, importers, exporters and distributors of herbs and herbal products. On October 10, 2018 the Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) published a request for information in the Federal Register (“the October 10 Notice”)1 in which the agency solicited information and comments concerning abuse potential, actual abuse, medical usefulness, trafficking, and impact of scheduling changes on availability for medical use of 16 drug substances: ADB– FUBINACA; FUB–AMB(MMB– FUBINACA_AMB–FUBINACA); ADB– CHMINACA; CUMYL–4CN–BINACA; Cyclopropyl Fentanyl; Methoxyacetyl Fentanyl; Ortho-Fluorofentanyl; Para- Fluoro Butyrfentanyl; Para- Methoxybutyrfentanyl; N-Ethylnorpentylone; Tramadol; Pregabalin; Cannabis Plant and Resin; Extracts and Tinctures of Cannabis; Delta-9- Tetrahydrocannabinol; and Stereoisomers of Tetrahydrocannabinol. The October 10 Notice further details that “these comments will be considered in preparing a response from the United States to the World Health Organization (WHO) regarding the abuse liability and diversion of these drugs. WHO will use this information to consider whether to recommend that certain international restrictions be placed on these drugs.” This FDA request for comment is in preparation for the WHO’s 41st Expert Committee on Drug Dependence (ECDD) which will take place in Geneva, Switzerland November 12-16, 2018.
PepsiCo Needs Cannabis More Than It Realized PepsiCo (PEP) learned a lesson last week when the CFO told everyone that they have no plans for cannabis on the conference call and the stock immediately dipped 1.4%. In an effort to try to walk back his prior comment, the CFO later appeared on CNBC to say that the beverage giant is taking a hard look at the industry. We think PepsiCo, no matter how reluctant they might be, has no other choice but to start formulating its cannabis plan because the beverage market is fast-changing and the next billion-dollar opportunity could depend on something called Cannabidiol (“CBD”). PepsiCo CFO Hugh Johnston said on its earnings call last week that the company had no plans to enter the cannabis industry. Clearly, the answer was not what investors wanted to hear and the stock dipped 1.4% immediately after the comment was made. The stock recovered much of the losses later, but the CFO had to come to CNBC later that day to walk back his previous comments where he softened the tone and said that the company is taking a hard look at cannabis, although he has no specific updates now.
Here Come The PC Police
President Trump: Robert Bowers Is A Terrorist, Not A Person With Dementia On the morning of October 27th, Robert Bowers murdered 11 worshippers at the Tree of Life Congregation in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. While in a firefight with police, he unloaded anti-Semitic rants to explain his crime. Twelve hours later, at a campaign rally in Murphysboro, Illinois, President Donald Trump described Bowers as “sick,” evil,” and — notably — “demented.” By lumping those descriptions together, Trump not only willingly perpetuates a falsehood, but also further stigmatizes those currently living with dementia. Just four days prior to the murders in Pittsburgh, retired Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor announced in a letter that she has dementia: “Some time ago, doctors diagnosed me with the beginning stages of dementia, probably Alzheimer’s disease.”
Hour 2 – Medical Kidnapping Update
Long Island mother fighting to have son removed from chemotherapy after clean bill of health A mother on Long Island is fighting to have her son removed from chemotherapy treatment after he was given a clean bill of health by doctors. Candace Gundersen’s son, Nick Gundersen, 13, is receiving court-ordered chemotherapy at NYU Winthrop Hospital in Mineola. He’s now in the custody of Suffolk County Child Protective Services. Gundersen of Huntington said Nick was diagnosed by doctors at Cohen Children’s Medical Center with acute leukemia in June 2018. Gundersen said she asked doctors if she could get a second opinion before Nick began chemotherapy on June 30th. “They told me if I didn’t consent to the treatment they would call CPS and have me removed and my son would have the treatment anyway,” Gundersen said. “So I signed the consent.” Gundersen, who’s a holistic wellness coach, said Nick was hospitalized for 30 days and suffered an adverse reaction to the chemotherapy.
Help Nick Stay in Remission Safely Please help me save Nick from being forced into toxic treatment which is highly detrimental and unsuccessful. Save his life by helping us get him non-toxic preventative therapies which are working for patients all over the world! We are currently duking it out within the legal system. This is not inexpensive by any stretch of the imagination. I want to thank you in advance for any generosity you can spare for this cause. No amount is too small. The money will go to attorneys, non toxic preventative therapies, high quality foods, related medical expenses or whatever Nick needs to thrive, including housing and living expenses.
Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Slams Richard Pan In New Midterm Campaign Commercial Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is a Democrat, but it seems that even he’s having second thoughts these days. Specifically, Kennedy Jr. is asking Californians to avoid voting for Senator Richard Pan in a new campaign ad. Kennedy says that “Richard Pan is a Democrat, but he takes money from Monsanto and from the other big polluters in California.” RFK encourages California voters to instead opt for Eric Frame, a politician not associated with any political parties.
Vaccines in The News!
Professor Says Parents Have No Right to Refuse Vaccines for Their Children In a recent video commentary published in Medscape, New York University professor Arthur L. Caplan, PhD offered his views on the question of whether children have “vaccination rights.” Dr. Caplan thinks that what he defines as the “vaccination rights” of minor children supersede the legal right of their parents to exercise informed consent to vaccination on their children’s behalf if a parent elects to decline one or more government recommended vaccines for whatever reason. He claims that vaccinating children represents a higher moral imperative than respecting the informed consent rights of parents. “I want to point out a moral stance that I don’t think has gotten enough attention, which is that every child has the right to be vaccinated,” said Caplan. “We keep talking about parents’ right to say yes or no, to avoid mandates or requirements, or to do what they choose to do. Someone has to speak up and say, ‘Well, what about the kids? Don’t they have any rights?’”
The [influenza] vaccine may be less beneficial and less safe than has been claimed, and the threat of influenza seems to be overstated. Mandatory vaccination polices have been enacted, often in healthcare facilities, forcing some people to take the vaccine under threat of losing their jobs. The main assertion of the CDC that fuels the push for flu vaccinations each year is that influenza comes with a risk of serious complications which can cause death, especially in senior citizens and those suffering from chronic illnesses.
When read carefully, the CDC acknowledges that studies finding any perceived reduction in death rates may be due to the “healthy-user effect”—the tendency for healthier people to be vaccinated more than less-healthy people. The only randomized trial of influenza vaccine in older people found no decrease in deaths. This means that influenza vaccines are approved for use in older people despite any clinical trials demonstrating a reduction in serious outcomes.
Even when the vaccine is closely matched to the type of influenza that’s prevalent, which doesn’t happen every year, randomized, controlled trials of healthy adults found that vaccinating between 33 and 100 people resulted in one less case of influenza. In addition, no evidence exists to show that this reduction in the risk of influenza for a specific population—here in the United States, among healthy adults, for example—extrapolates into any reduced risk of serious complications from influenza, such as hospitalizations or deaths, among seniors.
For most people, and possibly most doctors, officials need only claim that vaccines save lives, and it is assumed there must be solid research behind it. — Peter Doshi, PhD, associate editor at The BMJ
Acclaimed Visa Row Film-Maker Finally Granted Right to Enter Australia The award-winning British journalist and film-maker Joan Shenton – whose Australian visa application controversially hit the rocks days before she was due to tour the east coast states with her HPV vaccination film Sacrificial Virgins – has been granted a one-year Australian visa. This follows an assessment by the Controversial Visitors Unit in the Department of Home Affairs. Ms. Shenton was scheduled to appear in person at seven August 2018 screenings of Sacrificial Virgins, which forensically probes the science behind the Gardasil HPV vaccination programs, questioning their safety and whether they actually work. However, a slew of newspapers attacked the screenings, quoting strident criticism by federal health minister Greg Hunt, and a statement appeared in newspapers that “Immigration Minister Peter Dutton would not rule out denying entry to British filmmaker Joan Shenton when she flies in for the screenings” (1). At that point Ms. Shenton’s visa hit difficulties and she was forced to cancel her visit.
Food Sovereignty Wins Again In Maine!
Another Maine Town Passes a Food Sovereignty Ordinance; Foundation to Hinder FDA Control The Fairfield town council unanimously passed a food sovereignty ordinance last month. The ordinance not only frees local farmers and consumers from onerous state regulations, but it will also create an environment hostile to federal regulations and where they could nullify some FDA edicts in effect. The “Local Food and Community Self-Governance Ordinance” exempts food producers in the town from certain state laws relating to food processing. “I think that people who are growing food and working with their neighbors really deserve the support to be doing that — to make food, particularly local food, an affordable and approachable commodity in our town,” Councilor Aaron Rowden said before the 5-0 vote. A state law passed last year gives local governments the authority to enact ordinances regulating local food distribution without state interference. Effectively, the Maine Food Sovereignty Act decentralizes regulations for direct producer to consumer sales, and allows local communities to create their own networks of distribution and regulation.
