NBC News was caught using a fake photo of a baby with measles in a segment attacking anti-vaccination “myths.”
The Christian podcast “A Call For An Uprising” caught NBC in the act. The photo NBC News used in the segment was merely a doctored stock photo of a newborn baby in a doctor’s arms.
This is a doctored stock photo of a baby without measles, available here for use by media outlets.
The Centers For Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has finalized the numbers in its autism prevalence report.
The report states that 1 in 59 children in the United States have autism (as of 2006 survey), which is a massive increase. The previous CDC report, released in 2012, stated that 1 in 68 children suffer from the disorder.
The new report states that 1 in 36 children between the ages of 3 and 17 suffer from autism.
CDC also reports a 20 percent increase in the rate of autistic children at the test sites that participated in the previous 2012 report.
The report has been delayed for weeks due to in-fighting at the agency over the numbers. READ ABOUT THAT IN-FIGHTING HERE.
Big League Politics received primary source documents from a CDC insider, who provided the following summary of the new CDC report:
“On April 27, 2018 the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released the 2014 report of the Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring (ADDM) Network. The report declares that the autism rate for 8-year-old children born in 2006 was 1 in 59, by 15% from the rate of 1 in 68 described in the 2012 ADDM report2 and an increase of 20% for the sites (6 out of 11) that participated in the 2012 survey.
The authors declared their new findings, “provide evidence that the prevalence of ASD is higher than previously reported estimates and continues to vary among certain racial/ethnic groups and communities.”
Despite the fact that autism rates have risen from 1 in 149 in their initial 2000 ADDM report and from 1 in 10,000 in the earliest American studies, the new report only grudgingly acknowledges (on page 15 of 23) that “with prevalence of ASD reaching nearly 3% in some communities and representing an increase of 150% since 2000, ASD is an urgent public health concern.” Oddly, as it has become obvious that America has a raging autism epidemic, the CDC’s main goal in reporting autism rates is to suppress public concern over what is now a clear national emergency.
Notably, these new rates are significantly lower than those reported last November by another branch of the CDC, the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS). In that study, the CDC reported a 2016 autism rate of 1 in 36 in American children aged 3-17 years old, and 1 in 28 boys.
When the NCHS study was released, no major news outlets reported on what was a new record high rate for autism.

Federal Government Threatens to Defund Connecticut School Districts for Allowing Males to Compete in Female Sports
In a “letter of impending enforcement action” released on May 28, 2020, the Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights declared that The Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference violated Title IX by “permitting the participation of certain male student-athletes” in girls’ track events at several school districts.
The federal investigation was kicked off last summer and were the result of the Alliance Defending Freedom filing a complaint on behalf three female students. The Justice Department took sides with female students during the past month.
The biological females sustained that the “Transgender Participation” policy, which was first enacted seven years ago, were stripped of their rights under Title IX by allowing “boys who are male in every biological and physiological respect” compete in their sports, provided that they “claim a female gender identity.”
The CIAC policy started to yield troubling results when two biological males who identified as girls began dominating girls’ track meets. This policy is less stringent than the NCAA’s transgender policy, which mandates males to take testosterone-suppressing hormones for at least a year before participating in female sports competitions.
Three school districts violated Title IX by also participating in CIAC athletic events. “Glastonbury, Canton, and Danbury placed female student-athletes in athletic events against male student-athletes, resulting in competitive disadvantages for female student-athletes,” federal officials stated.
The athletic events in which the female student-athletes competed were coeducational; female student-athletes were denied the opportunity to compete in events that were exclusively female, whereas male student-athletes were able to compete in events that were exclusively male.
On top of that, three other districts – Hartford, Bloomfield and Cromwell – violated Title IX by allowing two biological males, Terry Miller and Andraya Yearwood, compete on female teams per CIAC policy. According to the OCR, the conference and six districts “treated student-athletes differently based on sex.”
According to Greg Piper of the College Fix, “The letter uses pseudonyms for the students but all have been previously named. The girls filed a related lawsuit in February under their real names: Alanna Smith, Chelsea Mitchell and Selina Soule.”
The conference and six districts rejected “resolution agreements” with OCR, prompting the office to issue them “letters of impasse” on March 17. These are basically warning letters. The office initially gave them 10 days to comply. They then extended the deadline by an additional 30 days as a result of “their COVID-19-related duties and responsibilities.”
At the moment, OCR will either “initiate administrative proceedings” to block federal funding for the conference and districts or hand the cases over to the Justice Department in order for it to enforce federal law.
It’s good to see athletes finally get justice.
Thanks to the Left grabbing control of so many American institutions, Americans are subjected to a wide array of politically correct experiments.
This is a solid victory which should be built upon by the Trump administration and members of Congress.
