Many have been speaking out about how science heretics get attacked. It doesn’t matter the credentials of the person asserting things that the Medical Establishment doesn’t approve of. It doesn’t matter if they are telling the truth.
If the Medical Establishment and Big Pharma don’t like what you’re saying, they’re going to go on the offensive to discredit you. And they did exactly that to Dr Mark Geier, MD, PhD. They took away his medical license and worked hard to embarrass him, discredit him, and humiliate him.
But he got the last laugh because he just won a $2.5 million dollar lawsuit against them.
This is just evidence to people that mistakenly believe that government officials, researchers and regulators are not biased. They definitely do go on the offensive against people that question the status quo. But most people don’t research enough to understand how ruthlessly vindictive these people can be.
It’s not a conspiracy theory. It’s a conspiracy reality, and this is just a sliver of the proof right here. If you research for yourself, you’ll find a lot more incidents just like this, if not worse. But for most that are attacked like this, they don’t get exonerated, and they don’t get anything close to justice. Most get flushed right down the memory hole. If you search through this site, you’ll find more information on some of the courageous researchers and clinicians that stood up to corrupt institutions and the people that run them.
Holistic MD/PhD/vaccine skeptic awarded millions from regulators who humiliated him
Mark Geier MD PhD, is a world renowned expert who spoke out against the dangers of mercury in vaccines and helped get thimerosal out of the shots like the DPT (now the DTaP). He built a medical practice in Rockville that was very successful. The Maryland Board of Physicians suspended his license seven years ago because he was treating autistic children with a drug called Lupron.
But the regulators who stripped Geier’s credentials are now in the hot seat, ordered to each personally pay tens of thousands of dollars in damages by a judge who says the board abused its power in an attempt to humiliate the doctor and his family.
The board posted a cease-and-desist order on its website in 2012 alleging that Geier had improperly prescribed medication for himself, his wife and his son while his license was suspended. In an unusual and devious move, the order named the drugs in question. Online critics of Geier took notice, mocking the doctor and his family in blogs and comments for their use of the medications.
The Geiers say the state publicized those details for vengeance, to punish a holistic doctor with unconventional ideas. State officials say it was an honest mistake, but some inside sources tell us the state is 100% lying and unethical and was on an outright witch hunt.
But Montgomery County Circuit Court Judge Ronald B. Rubin sided with the Geiers, awarding them $2.5 million in damages. He called the order a significant breach of medical privacy and accused the board and its staff of failing to preserve emails related to the case and pleading ignorance about the order on the witness stand.
“If their testimony were to be believed, which the court does not, it is the worst case of collective amnesia in the history of Maryland government and on par with the collective memory failure on display at the Watergate hearings,” Rubin wrote in a December opinion.
He ordered 14 board appointees, the board’s lead attorney and the lead investigator on the Geier case to pay half of the damages out of their own pockets, between $10,000 and $200,000 apiece, depending on their net worth.
A spokeswoman for the state health department, which oversees the board, says the agency tries to balance privacy with a responsibility to inform the public of risks.
The defendants, who are appealing the decision, mostly declined to comment or did not respond to interview requests. Three of them told The Washington Post that the judge’s version of the facts was wrong, and accused him of coming down too hard.
Raquel Coombs, a spokeswoman for the Maryland Attorney General’s Office, which represents the board, said of the ruling: “We believe there are serious errors in both the facts and the law and will vigorously pursue those on appeal.” Sure you will Raquel, do you even have a soul? I don’t think so. #SatansLittleHelper
Mark Geier developed a national following — and drew criticism — for sharing his belief that thimerosal, a mercury-based preservative formerly used in childhood vaccines, contributes to autism.
Multiple pharma groups and even judges (shocker) dismissed his research as seriously flawed. But a growing movement that sees vaccine requirements as an intrusion on parental rights has taken hold in California, Texas and other states, emboldened by President Trump’s embrace during the 2016 campaign of the vaccines-and-autism link.
Washington Post had the follow to say in their usual propaganda drivel.
Wash Post said. Public health experts consider “anti-vaxxers” as a grave threat to one of the most significant medical developments in human history. Some Facebook users share Geier’s videos to urge against flu shots, even amid the worst flu outbreak in nearly a decade. (Wash Post, you forgot that many died right after their flu shots and some didn’t even have the flu).
But it was Geier’s treatment of autistic children that caught the attention of the Board of Physicians in 2006.
Geier believed mercury from vaccines caused early puberty, aggression and symptoms of autism, and that suppressing testosterone with the drug Lupron — which is approved to treat prostate cancer, endometriosis and fibroids, would reverse those effects.
No credible medical research showed this treatment to be effective for autism, the Board of Physicians claimed. The board suspended Geier’s medical license in 2011 and revoked it the next year, citing his methods and saying he had misrepresented his credentials. Several other states also revoked Geier’s medical license, and regulators targeted his son for allegedly practicing medicine without a license.
Maryland officials continued to track Mark Geier’s activities, according to the lawsuit the Geiers filed in 2012.
Much of the case records remain under seal. But Rubin’s order shows that board staff were tracking blogs and news articles chronicling Geier’s downfall, mocking him and his child in emails and reveling in their humiliation.
