Tim Bolen Wants to Make Us (or maybe just me) Feel Like We Are Being "Boiled in Oil."

(Also, I am responsible for the autism epidemic... so sorry guys... my bad.)

So I don't blog much any more.  Doing more serious and boring work... but taking the weekend off to share with my readers my exchange with a man named Tim Bolen.

If you have never heard of him, skip this post.  It is just stupid drama and tangential to anything important for our kids.  I am just putting this out there so people in our community see what a creep he is and don't fall for his BS.

Long story short, this is a guy who is basically a PR type guy in the Health Freedom movement (The entirety of which, excluding Bolen, have been wonderful to us and supportive of us), who, from what I can put together, sees the vaccine injury community as a cash cow and is trying to "take over" our movement.  (His own words.)  Which is hilarious, as no one in our movement actually wants to be in our movement, or do any of this fighting, we just want the poisoning, abuse, neglect and deaths of our kids to stop, and the epidemic to end, so we actually CAN'T stop fighting.  (God knows we have all tried, and it only lasts a few months at best before we get dragged back into the battle.)

So long story short, he starts writing hit pieces like six or eight months ago on "Autism Leadership," mostly SafeMinds and that warped into Canary Party, and the stuff he writes is just bizarre, barely based in fact, and never actually goes anywhere.  Lots of innuendo, no real point.  He wrote a really stupid one Friday, and I finally lost it and posted this on FB, then Age of Autism ran it.

He is also using one of my photos on his page with out permission, so I sent him an email to ask him to remove it.  Then another.  The following email exchanged ensued.

Posting so you can see what a kind hearted, reasonable guy he is... and how hard he is working to support families with vaccine injury and autism in our fight to stop the epidemic and heal our kids.

Mr Bolen,
This is my second notice to you.  You are using my photograph of Larsen and Issa with out my permission.  Remove it from your web site.
You are a bad faith player, and I do not want any of my work associated with you in any way.

Consult an attorney.  Since I am writing about you and yours my use is called “Fair Use.”  And , I am certainly not intimidated by a “Ken and Barbie” hanger-on.
You can absolutely count on the fact that your work will be associated with mine – very clearly, and widely distributed.
I am looking for MORE photos to use explaining the autism situation as it really is.  You people convict yourselves.
Really Ginger, the Canary Party gave Darrrell Issa $40,000 so each of you could have your picture taken with him trying to convince the Autism Community that YOU had some value in the discussion?  I am sure you are aware, as I am, that Darrell Issa’s committee did ABSOLUTLEY NO FOLLOW UP after last November’s meeting?
I am having a problem finding the Canary Party’s IRS 990s.  Where can I find them?
YOU are responsible for your actions.
Oh, and it would be a very good idea if you consulted an attorney about that little piece on me you put on FaceBook.  I may let the first one go, because I think you are a simple, emotional,  misguided, dupe, trying to fins a way to assuage your guilt - but a second time…
Hold yourself responsible for Autism.  I don’t know how you sleep at night.  Alcohol?
Tim Bolen

Please note that The Canary Party is a PAC, not a non profit, so we don't file 990s.

It should be very easy for you to sue me.  My husband and I have about $800 to our name.  Could not even afford a retainer for a lawyer.  So you would probably get the like 5 grand in equity we have in our house, and our ten year old Honda Pilot.
And we could probably find an apartment for $500 dollars a month here in Maine to raise our disabled child in.  But of course you bleeding us for a judgement for calling you out on the horrible things you are doing to families like ours would end any financing we had to actually treat, or even provide supplements for, my vaccine injured boy.
But yes... I fully believe that you are so evil that you would not only merely steal my intellectual property, slander me and my friends, sabotage the progress we have made struggling for a decade in the political system and do your best to ruin reputations and relationships... as you have already done all that... I believe you when you say you will sue me for telling the truth about you and your actions, and literally end my child's treatment.
YES Tim... I believe that you are that guy!  You are that evil.
And you would be happy to do it all, to tear down ALL of the orgs that we have spent a decade building, even to replace them with NOTHING as you have done NOTHING for our community, just to win because, you "absolutely love war."  And apparently war with the most vulnerable.
Sadly for me, I have not been given much of a choice in the matter.  My commission in life has been to call out liars who hurt the weak and the disabled.  Even if it means be being broke, scorned and even murdered.
So feel free to punch a poor autism mom in the face and take what little she has that she can help her child with.    Because you are that guy.

Ginger Taylor, MS
(Should Bolen take our home because I published this piece, I will be posting a sign up sheet where you, the reader, can offer my family a guest room at your house for a week or a month at a time.  We also have a tent and can sleep in your yard in warmer climes or in summer.)
Fortunately you wrote that piece as the Executive Director of the Canary Party…  and now, of course, after Dan Olmstead, who also, like you, for all practical purposes, is an employee of “Ken and Barbie…” re-published your piece, the dynamic has changed.
Life can be fun.
But, what makes you think I’m going to sue you, and yours?  My newsletter is a hundred times the size of Age of Autism…
Go ahead and list the “some progress” you claim to have made, please.  I’m right here waiting.  You people simply glom on to the “flavor of the month.”  No plan, no thinking, no analysis – but EVERY opportunity to have your picture taken.
I’m right, aren’t I?  Autism Leadership really is a “Ken and Barbie” romance drama, isn’t it?
Tim Bolen
Please note Bolen's persistent and creepy interest in the sex life of our very attractive President, who is young enough to be his daughter.

Subject: Re: Please remove my picture
You don't seem to have grasped the point of my note.  You write:
"Life can be fun."
It is fun for you to attack families of disabled children.  Even when they are telling the truth.
It is "fun" for you and you "absolutely love" it.
You have done zero to help us, and are having "fun" attacking and threatening law suits.  That is the kind of awful man you are.
Get my point?  Don't you think that this whole PR campaign for the Geiers might be something you want to rethink for the sake of ACTUAL autism families with ACTUAL sick and disabled kids... and, I don't know... for the sake of not being evil?
Ginger Taylor, MS

I simply can not get by the expenditure of $40,000 to have your picture taken with Darrell Issa – for that’s all you got out of it.  And you claim to be so poor…
I, Tim Bolen, am very much thinking of Autism families – but your “Ken and Barbie” operation stinks.
Want me off of your back?  Show me a breakdown plan, with an operating schedule, to solve the problem.   I find it hard to believe that there is no one within the Autism Leadership that does not know how to do a situational analysis.
The first step to solve a problem is to define it – and I am defining it.  ALL of your leadership groups together could only draw 1,500 people to AutismOne.  Your group is incompetent and you have no credibility.  Wake up.  You are problem number one.
Until I see a plan then get the fuck out of the way.  Because I definitely know how to do this.
And, stop whining.

Tim Bolen
"Get the fuck out of the way?"  Are you kidding?!  My lifelong dream!  I get to stop fighting this horrible fight, wipe off the blood, bandage my wounds and go pick out colleges for Chandler!  Glory to God in the Highest!  Tim Bolen has solved the autism epidemic!

Can't wait for him to step in and fix it so I have nothing to do any more!

"I simply can not get by the expenditure of $40,000 to have your picture taken with Darrell Issa"
Please understand where I am coming from...
Again... you are a bad faith player.  You are phony.  You have done nothing for our kids.  You get paid to talk.
If you believe you have the means to fix the vaccine injury epidemic in this country THEN BY ALL MEANS... FUCKING FIX IT!  Because you have not done jack.
I would be THRILLED to retire from the vaccine battle that has sucked up a decade of my life.  You started claiming you and 'your people' could fix this six months ago... and yet you have not fixed it.  So either you can fix it, and you just aren't, which makes you an asshole who doesn't care about kids, or you can't fix it, and you are just bashing parents for no reason, which makes you an asshole.
Kids getting brain damage every day you sit by and fail to implement this amazing master plan you have up your sleeve but keep failing to execute.
If you are the magician that you claim you are, then how in the world can us lazy, ineffective, drunk, incompetent, non-credible, dupes POSSIBLY be getting in your way??
Looking forward to watching you fix the vaccine problem with your super powers.  Please let us know when you have brought the evil doers to justice and healed our children.

Three points:

(1)   You seem to have deleted your earlier audience from this email string, so I am adding them back.  I wouldn’t want them to miss anything.

(2)   Situational Analysis is actually very simple.  It is simply a process.  But, for the Autism Leadership community there doesn’t seem to be any interest in actually solving problems – only showing up for an audience, whether in photos, or in person, to PRETEND that something is being done.  As one of the Autism Leaders I respect says to me “Ask any autism organization out there, “how do you plan to end the epidemic?” and no one will give you a straight answer, because they don’t have a plan. They are pursuing dead-end goals using outdated strategies. “
(3)   You all keep acting like Superman is going to fly in and save the day.  Wake the fuck up.  Superman is a comic strip.  This is real life.
(4)   Over the next several months you are going to think you are being boiled in oil – I have that much material – and it all comes from those you have stepped on, shit on, fucked with, marginalized, and laughed at.  And, it is going to make really good reading.  Plus I have REALLY GOOD investigators and researchers.  And, a very large audience.
(5)   I intend to hound all of you, continuously, until you start acting like adults.  I hold YOU responsible for the autism problem now.  Quit fucking around and fix the Autism problem.
(6)   You certainly do NOT have the support in your own community you think you do.

Tim Bolen
Sadly Bolen's plan is still a secret.  Perhaps we should pay him money for his plan?  I wonder how he plans to unveil his plan?

Also... on a serious note, If anyone reading this feels like they have been "stepped on, shit on, fucked with, marginalized or laughed at" by me, please let me know, because... well I think you all know how I feel about our community, and the idea that any earnest person would be hurt by something I did... I hate that.  Please get in touch privately if you feel like I have something to apologize to you for.
I hardly know how to respond... except to say that I think you are a crazy person.
We are a broke and broken volunteer army.  We are self financed.  We are all spending our own time and money.  If we suck at it, as you seem to think we do, then you should definitely tried to get us... fired?  Wait... no one employs us.  Oh... you should try to get our financing yanked... wait... we pay for all our own expenses.

You are writing hit pieces on volunteers, Bolen!
Newsflash... WE ALL HATE OUR FUCKING JOBS!!!  None of us do this by choice!  We do it because no one else is doing it and it has to be done!  Our kids are sick and dying!  No one is helping us.  YOU ARE NOT FUCKING HELPING US!

I repeat myself... you and "your team" whomever that is, want to take over and end this then God Bless You!  Do it!  Make me obsolete!  FUCKING DO IT ALREADY!  Why in the world are you wasting precious time and resources going after a bunch of losers like us when you could win the war for us!
I cannot wait to NOT have this responsibility on my shoulders any more!  No more fielding phone calls from parents trying to figure out what the hell just happened to their child... no more late nights reading research... no more funerals of my friends children to attend.

Quit crowing about what a hero you are, and be a fucking hero!  But thus far you have shown up for nothing, done no work, offered no help!

But we should stop doing... what exactly?  Cause I am not really clear on what you want us to stop doing, since you think that we should not be doing anything.

So we should NOT have brought Issa to AO?  Not put together testimony for MN?  I, all by my lonesome... was fighting for and against legislation in Maine.  But I guess I should NOT have been doing that here because you and your team were... doing it...  I am not sure.  Should we not be trying to get more hearings in the OGR?

Please let me know what you want us to stop doing that is getting in your way of saving the world.  Because if you got this, then I can go back to my career and buy a second car and pay of my school loans.  That would be sweet.
Ginger Taylor, MS
That was the last email in that thread.

But as a bonus!

So part of what he started doing late last year was make up an email list he called the "Autism Leadership Council" which presumably included the leaders of our various groups, CP, GR, AO, NAA, EBCALA... don't know exactly, because he BLIND COPIES the list and uses it to troll everyone.  He sends out these emails basically baiting people into saying mean things about each other, but no one can respond to the group only to him.  They are usually followed by people in our community randomly forwarding the emails to one another with comments like, "Who is this guy?", "Crazy." and "WTF?"

I got these emails for a while and I didn't know for like two months what the "Autism Leadership Council" was.  I thought there was some new group I had not heard of.

So yesterday he sent out this one:

Subject: The expose has just begun...

Autism Leadership Council
I want to thank all of you that commented on the recent shake-up of the
existing Autism leadership – or, as I point out – the lack of Autism
This expose has just begun.  Be assured that I, or my people, have checked
out every situation that all of you told me about.  The pattern that many
of you described is just as you described – I’m sorry to say.
No wonder Autism is still right here with us.
In conversations with many of you I have brought up a concern I have.  It
is time, I think, to talk about this more openly.  It is the simple fact
that there are only two answers available to the question "Why isn’t the
Autism Community successful in any of its efforts?"  The two possible
answers are (1) The current Autism leadership is venal and stupid, or (2)
They are a true Fifth Column.
So, let’s talk about that.
I have spent hours and hours listening to many of you describe how time
after time, over the years,  momentum to accomplish something begins,
builds, and then gets co-opted and nullified by almost always, the same
group of people.  I find it hard to believe that time after time, year
after year, “venal and stupid” wins.  After all “venal and stupid” is venal
and stupid.  Venal and stupid doesn’t consistently win.
I have a shocking series of Autism situation stories coming up. Stuff that
only some of you know, and horrible stuff none of you already know, but
should have been informed about.
Although my newsletter is primarily directed at what’s called "The North
American Health Freedom Movement" I have developed a serious Autism
readership – so, my words are going to have a direct effect .  And, about
As you know, I have kept all of your comments private, and acted on them
privately, without revealing the source.  That policy continues.  Send
comments, and questions, to jurimed2@earthlink.net.
Yes, it is my intention to make change.  I already see that happening. And,
I absolutely love war.
Tim Bolen
Still trying to figure out what the "recent shake-up of the existing Autism leadership" is that he was referring to.
This particular email was followed by a couple of "WTF?" notes flying around... as apparently he is trying to save half the people on his list from the other half of the people on his list?  All these people, of course, who have been working together and fighting together for like ten plus years.

So ... already having lost patience with his trolling, I sent the following:

You were off my list fifteen minutes after I figured out you were “Ken and Barbie’s” suitcase carrier.
Oh, you mean the “email list.”  Sure, I can do that.
I’m betting you are a Sauvignon Blanc consumer right?  Or maybe a Rosé?  Half gallon bottle a day, and no more than four bucks a bottle?
It won’t be YOU, then, that comes up with a plan.  Will it?
Tim Bolen
So there you have it.  This is the guy that is going to unseat me and my fellow broke ass, fried volunteers from our glorious and powerful positions of... staying up all night and reading research and testimony and writing books and articles and news letters and trying to remember the relevant points of finding standard deviation, and pounding hallways and briefing parents over the kitchen table and ranting on the internet... you know... all that super sexy stuff that us advocates get to do.

Getting fired from fighting against the Vaccine Lobby is like getting fired from your volunteer job in the coal mine or the fox hole.  The only thing you're gonna miss is your buddies.

So just give Dobby the fucking sock already!

God bless him... can't wait for him to take over this work already and end the autism epidemic!  Then I can get back to drinking full time!!  Now where's my box of wine!

Addendum:  Heard from as associate of the Geiers who says, "The Geiers and Tim Bolen are not working together and have not been working together for quite some time."  Very good to hear.

-------- Original Message --------
Subject: Information for your retraction

Mr. Bolen,
We have posted the information and video on the MN hearings, along with further information on what people can do to try to prevent the expansion of the vaccine schedule in that state. 
The effort to fight the expansion was organized by Canary Party Executive Director, Patti Carroll (she began working on this last November) and we are thrilled that so many individuals and organizations stepped up and took part. 
I am forwarding this information to you so that you have what you need to print a retraction of your last piece on what you have described as "Autism Leadership," in which you falsely characterized us as "organizationally constipated" and erroneously claimed that, "They simply cannot, and will not, form up."  Please note that our action alert on the matter brought over one hundred people out to challenge the changes, four times what was needed to trigger an administrative hearing before a Judge.  We are in the process of compiling the dozens of pieces of testimony that were submitted, but that will take some more time.
If you are interested in helping, rather than hamstringing or harming, efforts to roll back the epidemic of vaccine injury in this country, it might be a helpful choice to run this information in its entirety so that your readers can join in the effort in MN.  It is my understanding that when presented with a similar opportunity to tell your readers about the attack on the vaccine exemptions in your home state of California during the last legislative session, rather than help spread the word on the fight that Canary Party members were putting up against the bill, you called one of our activists leading the fight and told her to be happy that the bill was not worse... and declined to tell your readers that their rights to forgo vaccines with out coercion in CA was under attack.
I respectfully request that you let your readers know about the efforts of the Canary Party in MN, and the wonderful coordination that we had with our sister organizations, and correct the record so your readers are not left with the false impression that CP had no role in the hearings, and that Ms. Miller's organization was the only one that showed up to offer input on the vaccine expansion.
Also.. please correct the very strange accusation that the Canary Party did not say the word "vaccine" at hearings about the "vaccine program," as it is both inaccurate and nonsensical.  (Video of our ED, Patti Carroll's testimony on the "vaccine" schedule and Pharma/MNMDH's malfeasance and conflicts on this issue http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F5jFrfyuYHg

The Canary Party


 The harrassment from Bolen has continued, and only become more disturbing.  On 12/31/14 in a yahoo group with dozens of professionals, he compared me to a "howling dog" who someone has "with a stick, inserted the turpentine soaked rag six to eight inches up the animal's rectum."

He was ejected from the group and I have requested that he never contact me again.  Despite this, he continues to try to contact me.


After more attacks online, I invited anyone to ask me any questions to clear up any of the lies that Bolen has spread about myself and my colleagues.  An earnest woman sent me the following and I replied.  Posting because I don't think that I have done a detailed response to is crazy pieces where he just makes up lies and publishes them  Posting part of the exchange here:

Hi Ginger

I sent you this FB message, but you might not have received it.

I realize you are probably busy, so please don’t spend a lot of time on this. I am just a truth warrior looking for the truth. I followed a lot of the thread between you and Ron Fogia and found his information to be at first persuasive, but then questionable especially his tactics in blocking you from being able to answer.

The main point that stands out for me is that he accused Mark Blaxill of having ongoing ties to pharma companies.

I have enjoyed many of your blogs. I appreciate your efforts to share you story and inform unsuspecting parents. I seek to provide facts to help those still convinced of the vaccine myths in order to help them avoid vaccine injure which you and many of pioneers know all too much about:
Hi Ginger, I'm not sure if you have ever answered Tim Bolen's allegations against Mark Blaxill, or what your position is in regard to Blaxill. The confusion caused by the likes of Ron is not helpful I understand. And I know Tim Bolen does not have a pristine record. However, some of the points he makes about Autism One and Blaxill doing his own conference in Texas are concerning. I am not an "insider". It is difficult to sort the information from the allegations. I thought maybe this topic has been addressed somewhere. http://www.bolenreport.com/autism/autism%20infighting16.htm
There's a Hole in the Bucket Dear Liza, Dear Liza... Then Fix It, Dear Henry, Dear Henry, Dear...
Last March I wrote the third article in this series "Why Autism is Going to Be Here Much, Much Longer... Unless Major Change Happens... " Then, I just walked away from the Autism world, not appearing anywhere, not getting involved with issues, just doing other things. Just to let the situation mar…
It is clear that there is a lot of disinformation as well as confusion. Then comes all the blaming and name-calling. All this does not help the unification against those who have committed crimes against the children of this country. I'm just trying to understand the truth. Thanks if you have time to direct me. - B

Hi B,

No I had not seen it.  Thank you for contacting me directly.

I will try to address this as best I can (and yes we have addressed these things constantly over the years) but the problem with addressing Bolen's writing is that it is just a fantasy.  He will take an actual event and twist it into something unrecognizable and leaves people who were involved to go, "What?  What the hell is he talking about?"  For every paragraph he writes it would take three to explain what is wrong with it.  And then some stuff is just completely made up.

And having to read this stuff is just like drinking poison.  Tomorrow I have the fun task of going to the police again to see how to start a request for a restraining order because he will not stop sending me harassing emails.  

It has been a rough night, but I will try to address this as best I can.

What you need to pay close attention to is that Bolen opens every one of his "newsletters" with:
"Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen"  
He does this because if he says "Mark Blaxill showed up to a party in a dress," when in fact Mark is a button down, preppy 52, year old Harvard MBA that does not even appear in public in a shirt with out a collar, was not wearing a dress, has never worn a dress, and appeared at the event in tasteful men's casual wear... with pictures to prove it, if you try to sue him for defamation or slander he can merely respond... "This is an OPINION piece.  It was my OPINION that Mark Blaxill was wearing a dress."

This is Mark at that karaoke party.  Mark was a singer at Princeton, wonderful bass voice, and will sing for us about once a year. Notice the lack of women's wear on him:

Also, that is me left, holding a glass of wine.  This, to Bolen, was proof that I was an alcoholic. http://adventuresinautism.blogspot.com/2013/06/tim-bolen-wants-to-make-us-or-maybe.html

Allow me to walk you through what it is like for me reading Bolen's garbage:
"On January 24th, 2015 in Minneapolis, Minnesota an event was held sponsored by a self-styled Autism Leadership group calling itself either the "Canary Party or "Health Choice," whichever name,  I think, sounds catchier to whomever they are talking to at the time."The event, allegedly a book-signing at a University, by authors of ten books on autism issues, was advertised by hiring a billboard somewhere near Minneapolis, and the most meager of FaceBook campaigns.  Of course, no one showed up.  The event was a massive failure.  The temperature outside in Minneapolis on an average January 24th was high of 32 and a low of 26.  It was a grandstanding to NO audience.  Authors flew in from all over the country to sign books for each other. 
Just one more massive failure, by this group, to add to the list." 

We had a book event, which Bolen did not attend, and managed to get the University of MN.  The school was harassed to throw us out, and the skeptics warned students not to come.  It was cold that day, but we still got a decent turn out.  We also got some people with brains to listen to us from MN.  Yay!  A little victory against adversity!  Right?  No... according to Bolen, who was not there, it was a "massive failure."  WTF?

And did he miss the part that CP/HC members have published a DOZEN books on the problems in the vaccine program and mainstream medicine, all aimed at the mainstream population to expose the damage being done?   I feel like that was kinda the point of the event.  http://canaryparty.org/the-news/75-questioning-the-vaccine-program  Didn't he kinda bury the lead?
"Like the characters in the old Children's Song titled above, some of what is known as Autism Leadership, have been locked into a solution pattern that did not work in the past and will not work in the future."
Umm... what's "Autism Leadership?"  Is that a group I have not heard of yet?  (Googles "Autism Leadership."  finds nothing.)  Who is he talking about, is that supposed to be us?  I don't understand.
"Thankfully though, there is a big, long overdue, power shift going on in the autism community. The move is away from the Canary Party/Health Choice  partying, preening, and posturing, towards determining actual solutions - then working towards actuating those solutions."
There's a power shift?  When did we have power?  What exactly did we have power over?  And where did we loose that power?  Did someone say they wanted to stop working with us or something?  No?  Then anyone know what he is talking about?
"There is, of course, with this, discomfort.  Those that think like the Canary Party/Health Choice posers, assuming that they can solve the autism problem by having their $40,000 photo taken with a Congressman (and, yes, that has happened - see below), are looking around kind of stunned, wondering where that Congressman went once the check cleared.  For Autism Leadership REALITY is here in all its starkness.  What works is over here.  What does not work is over there.
And, it is ABOUT TIME."

Me:  "I don't even know what this means!"  Jennifer Larson:  "He is a crazy person!  Now stop reading Bolen's crap and finish writing the Congressional briefing packets!  We have 8 Congressional meeting starting tomorrow and I have to be on a plane to DC in two hours!  Did you find a videographer for Thursday yet?"  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h4CwROrKG8A
"As everyone has figured out, the effort to destroy Autism One, the biggest most inclusive event in autism, and replace it with a Canary Party/Health Choice Ken and Barbie Play Day, failed. Autism One is bigger, and stronger, than ever, with far more support once, as I reported earlier about Autism One "They threw out the trash..."
Hey guys... did one of you try to "destroy AutismOne" and not mention it?  Because why would you try to destroy AutismOne?  Does he mean that when we were a sponsor in 2013, and then in 2014 decided to sponsor a different conference with our limited funds?  Yea... I guess not sponsoring a conference is a effort to destroy it.  Yes... I know, I know... Bolen is a crazy person.  Got it. 

And it goes on and on and on!  If I responded to all the craziness just in this ONE post it would take me all day.  So I will hit the highlights.

"The hijacking of the November 29th, 2012 autism hearing in front of the US Congressional Oversight and Government Reform (OGR) Committee chaired by Congressman Darrell Issa."
Long story short.  Brian Hooker was working with OGR on the hearings...  We were told by one of the staffers that... they no longer wanted him to testify before the committee.  SafeMinds had been working on Capitol Hill for many years and Lyn Redwood was put in to testify in his place.  Lyn then had a schedule change and could not appear, and asked Mark to appear.  Jake Crosby, with out citing any sources for his information, decided that Mark schemed to get Brian thrown out.  30 people tried to talk to Jake to get him to stop lying about this.  He won't.  Bolen reports the lie as truth.  Despite the fact that there is no source on the record, apparently it is up to us to be able to prove a negative, which is impossible to do.

And all the crap about the Congressional Panel at AutismOne?  Complete nonsense!

Some time between that May 11th video and May 24th, the day of the panel itself, things changed.  Suddenly, the Canary Party was sponsoring the panel, the panel moderator was changed from attorney Bob Krakow to Mark Blaxill, and the panel was increased by one member Darrel Issa, the Chairman of the US Congressional Oversight and Government Reform Committee."
Here is Bob Krakow moderating the Congressional Panel! 

Note that Krakow thanks AutismOne for "making this happen." Mark's crime?  Introducing the panel.

"Bringing Issa was a waste of time."
Bringing Issa was amazing and opened a ton of doors and allowed us to get some amazing messages out. like the Congressional briefing i linked you to.  It made our cause legit in DC.

Bolen does not know anything about what we do behind the scenes and what came out of bringing Issa to AO.

Canary Party/Health Choice's succession of failures...

(1)  Probably the key event, the catalyst, so to speak, of change, was the, behind the scenes, big money spent, blatant takeover of that November 29th, 2012 Congressional hearing event, where Brian Hooker, and others, were pushed out of testifying in favor of whatever-the-hell-that-was where Ken (Mark Blaxill) couldn't get the V word out of his mouth."

Here is Mark testifying at the hearings about vaccines and autism.  Note the audience applause.

(3)  Then there was the Canary Party's attempt to claim credit for something the Health Freedom Movement did in Minnesota.  I wrote about that here."

CP coordinated the hearings with Health Freeom in MN.  We are good friends with them.  Here is the CP executive director testifying https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F5jFrfyuYHg.  She was the point person who set up the testimony.  CP flew in Karen Kain to testify. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i2sRMX67yfA

(8)  Their eviction from Autism One.  I don't know the whole story about this, but from what I am hearing, it may all have started when Ken (Mark Blaxill) showed up at the Karaoke Party at Autism One 2012 wearing a woman's dress that, apparently fit him very well.  It is not known whether Blaxill brought this dress with him in his suitcase, or whether he wore a dress that some woman had worn that day to Autism One.  I don't even care to hear an explanation."

Would you like to see the email that Teri Arranga of AutismOne inviting us to sponsor the conference in 2014?

Hi Patti and Ginger:

Not sure if you’ve seen on Facebook, but we’ve already started work on the conference for next year.  This work includes speaker selection and space (e.g., lecture/meeting room) allocation.  As you can imagine with a schedule as big, intricate, and challenging as AutismOne, there is more flexibility earlier in the planning process than later.

Please let me know if there is interest on the part of Canary Party.

I will be the liaison for the aforementioned, so please contact me directly.

(***) ***-****

As for this:

Ken is actually an Intellectual Property Strategist with, at least in the past, an impressive client list, some of which, he admits, are Big Pharma.  Got that?  Absorb it."


Mark was a VP for the Boston Consulting Group when they had Merck as a client.  They were not Mark's client.  Mark would not shut up about vaccine damage and wrote a book about it (http://www.amazon.com/Age-Autism-Medicine-Man-Made-Epidemic/dp/B0055X6B9G/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1447564748&sr=1-1&keywords=age+of+autism), and BCG fired him around 2010 ish? (don't remember when)  He formed is own company and has never taken pharma clients.  He does not have pharma clients.  Mark is not fond of Pharma. 

Prove it you say?  How can anyone prove a negative I ask!

(Got one thing wrong and sent her a correction - I talked to Mark and I have to make a correction to what I sent you.  He said that he worked at BCG from 1988 to 2006, and during that time he did work on one pharma project.  He contributed to one for Merck.  Sorry.  But he would not shut up about vaccine risks and BCG fired him, so clearly it didn't compromise him.  And he has never had a pharma client since, and vehemently says he never will.)

Bolens writing is wall to wall bullshit.  Sorry... it is is Bolen's "opinion" that mark has "an impressive client list, some of which, he admits, are Big Pharma." 

So he doesn't have to prove it or anything.  No source, no link.  Nothing.  Just an opinion piece.  He told you so right at the top. 

Note that even though he attacks Age of Autism for screening comments, he allows no comments what so ever on his web site.  Because he could not lie about people, as they could show up and post videos of the events he lies about and shut him down.

It is my opinion that Tim Bolen is a con-man and a sociopath.  And everything I have written in this email is my opinion.  And it is also my opinion that you, B****, are SENDING ME THREATENING, CONFRONTATIONAL EMAILS AND I AM AFRAID FOR MY LIFE AND YOU ARE CLEARLY PHARMA!!!

See how that works?  Imagine someone doing that to you publicly for three years.

Do you see what I mean when I say you can't even sort through it?  Do you know how many hundreds of hours we have spent at this point trying to untangle the lies this man tells? 

I'm gonna go to bed.  Please feel free to send me any other questions.  I appreciate when people come to us directly.  Hope this helps.

Final update:  After Bolen's serious harassment of other autism moms and notifiying Bolen that I considered his behavior toward me harassment, I told him that he was not to contact me again.  He continued to try to contact me for a full year, and I eventually contacted the police.

They in turn called him and told him that they had been notified that he was harassing me, and that they were now tracking the case.  Reiterating formally that I did not want him contacting me.

Bolen's response was that he would continue to try to contact me despite my request and the request of officials.

So he has officially declared himself to be a stalker.

I have blocked him everywhere so I don't have to deal with the harassment any more, so when you message me and say, "Have you seen what Bolen wrote?" my answer will be no.

Closing this chapter with this troubled and dishonest man.

Ginger, I don't understand the disdain for the Geiers. Their concerns about mercury are founded and they have documentation to back it up. The founders of AofA seem to agree about mercury as well. Again, I don't understand the disdain or the attempts by others to marginalize them, exclude them. It appears to be petty and counterproductive. They should be included in sentences of praise right alongside you and Brian Hooker. Anyone who attempts to cast aspersions on them should be ostracized. Again, I don't know what the specific problem is. If Bolen can stop this mess, I am anxious to watch it unfold. I have always, always appreciated everything you've done and posted. And I'm sure I don't know the half of it.

I don't have any feelings about the Geiers one way or another. I don't actually know them, but at this point, it would be appropriate for them to weigh in on this and let people know whether or not Bolen has done this crap on their behalf or if this is something that they do not approve of.

I posted my initial post to their fb pages, but no comment thus far.

If Bolen is doing this at their behest though, I am not sure how to excuse that.

Ginger Taylor said...

Addendum: Heard from as associate of the Geiers who says, "The Geiers and Tim Bolen are not working together and have not been working together for quite some time." Very good to hear.

Ginger, thank you for replying. I understand the question you raise. All of these Bolen articles have "Mark Geier" in the URL. What I am asking about though is the disdain for the Geiers that was revealed in the SM discussions prior the congressional oversight testimony months ago.

I also wanted to point out that the University of Calgary video shown at the oversight hearing re: mercury and Dr. Boyd Haley's comments all convey the same messages the Geiers convey. The harassment they have endured is not so different than what Dr. Wakefield and Dr. Burzynski have, just (so far) on a lesser scale. They are on the same team as we are. They know about the corruption and they want this to end. They are paying the same type of price that Wakefield and Burzynski are.

I think it is possible that this is a Health Freedom thing and not so much a Dr. Geier thing anymore, but you are correct that clarification is needed.

The SM debacle (not the reveal of it), but the SM debacle and the UN statement set things way back. Why are they proceeding along the same trajectory? They created their own PR nightmare by attempting to exclude one of our - and their own - Dr. Geier, and by their stance re: the UN Treaty. I don't understand the "sweeping under the rug" sentiment where they are concerned. Many people have been fighting hard for years. It does not give them a free pass, no matter how many SF apologists post otherwise. I hate that it happened - that they feel that way about the Geiers and I do not understand it. But it happened. It needed to be brought to light to everyone who supports and believes in the Geiers and their work. SM hasn't even acknowledged it that I am aware of. They lost a lot of credibility in my eyes and I think it will forever hang over their heads until it is addressed and resolved. The Geiers deserve the same courtesy and respect that Dr. Wakefield, Brian Hooker, and Dr. Haley do. People who put any of them down appear to have a very different agenda than we parents of the vaccine injured do.

Hi- I recently started following your blog for the Autism info, and haven't read much on what you're doing in the vaccine arena, but I wanted to tell you that you can force him to take the photo (and any photo that belongs to you) down. You can file a DMCA complaint, which not only he but his web host has to honor because he is BREAKING THE LAW. There is no such thing as fair use when it comes to personal photographs. My friend is a copyright attorney and a blogger and she wrote a good explanation of how to file a DMCA complaint here: http://sarafhawkins.com/how-to-file-a-dmca-takedown-notice/ Another thing I recommend is going to whois.com, entering the web address of his site, and finding out who his web host is. Then email them yourself with a copy of your DMCA complaint. I've seen sites be taken down over such things. Hope this helps!

Bolen is sick, sick, sick. In the past decade I've seen other hucksters like him try to shake down people in the autism community. Odd how he says we shouldn't wait for Superman, but then he positions himself as the Messiah.

This week we caught him in a lie. He is making up this stuff as he goes. Thinks he doesn't have to do due diligence or provide references.

He exists because he recognizes society's lowest common denominators. He leverages people's understandable but unhealthy urges to see evil visited upon our enemies.

Of course, the CDC leverages fear. And some people are not emotionally or intellectually evolved enough to realize that they're being played.

Sorry Ginger,That this guy is so not friendly and you are being attacked. I've been in this for several years and never even heard of this guy until Olmsted wrote the gunslinger piece and published it. This guy is a nobody. To engage him is unproductive. He does nothing for our community. If he were genuinely interested in helping us, he would have been at Autism One. He is not a team player and his spirit is that of a vaccine maker. Don't trip on the idiots.
