Tennessee ‘integrative’ doctor goes full anti-vaxxer and stops giving them to clients

Published

on

A Tennessee clinic specializing in “integrative” treatments announced that it would not provide vaccines for its clients, Nashville Scene reported.

The post on the Cool Springs Family Medicine clinic’s website was not signed, but the facility is headed by Daniel Kalb, who has been practicing for more than 15 years, which is reflected in the text.

“They can cause Autism – yes, I’ve had 15 years’ experience in taking care of ASD kids, that’s a lot of vaccine injury stories from moms,” the post read. “Don’t tell me that they are making it up or they are just reaching for an explanation, or that it was a coincidence or that they are just too stressed, or that they are uninformed. All of those arguments are stupid.”

The post also cites a debunked study by researcher Andrew Wakefield, which Kalb claims was “properly defended and vindicated 4 years ago,” proving that there is a link between the Measles Mumps and Rubella (MMR) vaccine and autism.

In fact, that study, originally published in the Lancet, was retracted by the journal in 2010. Nashville Scene also pointed out that 10 of the report’s 13 authors “cosigned a partial retraction of its main interpretation” in 2004.

Kalb, whose facility uses “homeopathic remedies and essential oils” to treat patients, also cited a debunked story claiming that William Thompson, a researcher for the Centers for Disease Control, admitted that a CDC study saying autism was not linked to the vaccine contained falsified data.

“With this information and the lack of studies that prove the safety of combined vaccines, I can do no harm, so I’m out,” the post stated, adding, “I am not going to engage in internet battles, but, just as I have always done, as is my responsibility as a Family Physician, I will be an advocate for each of my patients as best as I know how.”

Kalb’s apparent reasoning runs counter to the American Academy of Pediatrics’ stance on the issues, which calls such claims “dangerous to public health.”

The claim also drew criticism from state epidemiologist Tim Jones.

“There is not question whatsoever in the scientific or medical community – it’s just wrong,” Jones told the Tennessean.

Rick Wilson hilariously ridicules the ‘formal flip-flops’ and ‘dress cargo pants’ worn by Florida Trump supporters

Published

on

Republican strategist Rick Wilson mocked the attire of the Donald Trump supporters who were bused in from around Florida for his official campaign kickoff in Orlando.

Wilson, a Florida man himself, joined MSNBC's Brian Williams for post-rally analysis on "The 11th Hour."

Williams played a clip of a Trump supporter with sleeveless Trump T-shirt identifying her as a "proud member of the basket of deplorables" explaining why she'll vote to re-elect the president in 2020.

"The main reason? Because he’s one of the best presidents we’ve had for a very long time," the woman argued. "Very long time."

2020 Election

Here is the mega-list of the biggest promises Trump made — but never kept

Published

on

President Donald Trump launched his 2020 campaign Tuesday, touting the campaign slogan "Promises Made, Promises Kept." Unfortunately, for the campaign, they'll likely spend a lot of time swearing that they've been able to accomplish things that quite simply haven't happened. Promises seemed easy for Trump make, but it likely won't be easy to convince Americans he's kept them.

Here's the list of Trump's "Promises Made, Promises Broken":

1. Infrastructure

It's the one issue that Trump could actually get accomplished, but he's refusing to do it. While Americans grapple with tire-bursting potholes and crumbling bridges across the country, the president has put aside his plan to yell at Democrats. During the scheduled meeting, the president spent just three minutes reprimanding them before leaving the room and holding a press conference to tell Americans he’s on strike and nothing will move forward until investigations stop.

Trump introduced his family at his official campaign kickoff — including ‘my late brother Fred, Jr’

Published

President Donald Trump introduced a long-deceased sibling moments after officially announcing his re-election bid during a campaign rally in Orlando, Florida.

"And I am profoundly thankful to my family, I have a great family. Melania, Don, Ivanka, Eric, Tiffany, baron, Lara, Jared, Robert, Marianne, Elizabeth and my late brother, Fred, Jr." Trump said.

Fred, Jr. was Trump's older brother and died of a heart attack almost four decades ago, passing in 1981.

"In a telephone interview last week, Mr. Trump said he had learned by watching his brother how bad choices could drag down even those who seemed destined to rise," The New York Times reported in 2016. Seeing his brother suffering led him to avoid ever trying alcohol or cigarettes, he said."
