Gilead’s Money Balm. Good to be the (ARV) King.

RTB: Terry Michael is adding the numbers this week in this editorial on how to make money in pharmaceuticals.

The toxic balms of Gilead result in sky-rocketing revenues on the eve of the 30th Anniversary of the invention of the “AIDS virus”

Gilead Sciences of Foster City, CA, the politically connected number one dealer of toxic “HIV” anti-retrovirals, celebrated the 30th anniversary of the invention of the AIDS virus a day early, today, April 22, 2014.

The Biblically named company reported 1stQtr2014Revenues of $4,998,956,000 —DOUBLE revenues of $ 2,531,635,000 for the 1st Qtr of 2013. Almost all of the increase came from several new or recent ARV’s, as explained in their press release:

Antiviral product sales increased to $4.51 billion for the first quarter of 2014, up from $2.06 billion for the first quarter of 2013 largely due to sales of Sovaldi® (sofosbuvir 400 mg), which launched in December 2013, and increases in sales of Stribild® (elvitegravir 150 mg/cobicistat 150 mg/emtricitabine 200 mg/tenofovir disoproxil fumarate 300 mg) and Complera/Eviplera® (emtricitabine 200 mg/rilpivirine 25 mg/tenofovir disoproxil fumarate 300 mg). This increase was partially offset by a decrease in wholesaler and sub-wholesaler inventories in the United States associated primarily with our HIV products, which also impacted antiviral product sales in the first quarter of 2014 compared to the fourth quarter of 2013.

For 2013, Gilead reported ARV revenues of $9.3 billion. If the 1st Qtr 2014 revenue increases are maintained for the rest of the year, Gilead could double its revenue to $18 billion in 2014 (though conditions for the 1st Qtr may have been particularly favorable for sales.)

You will recall that our friend Dr. Tony Fauci, NIAID director-for-life, named  Gilead CEO John C. Martin to NIAID’s advisory council way back in March 2000. Gilead’s chairman at the time was Donald Rumsfeld, soon to become George W. Bush’s Secretary of Defense, whose department stockpiled tens of millions of dollars of Gilead’s then big money-maker, TamiFlu, increasingly regarded as worthless, or nearly so. CNN magazine had this revealing story on Rumsfeld, TamiFlu and Gilead’s political connections in 2005. Fauci used Gilead’s “generously donated” Truvada in the bogus, confirmation-biased clinical trial experiments on Third World subjects, which led to Truvada’s fast-tracked (in six months!) FDA approval in 2012 for so-called “pre-exposure prophylaxis”– highly toxic chemotherapy for HIV NEGATIVES.

Gilead’s (GILD) stock prices have zoomed from the low 20s to the low 70s in just the past two years.

The champagne corks should be popping in Foster City, CA Wednesday as the company celebrates the April 23, 1984 invention of the AIDS virus, proclaimed as probably a human retrovirus by HHS Secretary Margaret Heckler in a science-by-press-release media event on that date 30 years ago. It started the money ball rolling for Gilead and the other purveyors of  toxic ARV’s.

Happy April 23!

Pre-Empting World AIDS Day Radio Weekend

Join Liam Scheff, Robert Scott Bell, and a panel of guest researchers, journalists and scientists on a full-frontal exposure of the AIDS machine.


Saturday 6PM – “The Investigation with Liam Scheff” with special guest, journalist Terry Michael, to discuss the ‘old-is-new’ pre-HIV drug ‘therapy’ for healthy gay and bisexual men. The death dealers at the NIH want to pre-drug you for AIDS, with drugs that will kill you over time, and can do so quickly! What is their rationale? And where is their shame? [CLICK] “Does Poison Make You Healthy?”

Sunday – Two Full Hours on the Robert Scott Bell Show: – 1PM to 3PM EST, 10AM to Noon Pacific Time.

Call in at 1-800-259-5791 during show hours with your questions or comments. [CLICK]

Confirmed guests thus far include attorney David Steele, Investigator Clark Baker, Journalist Liam Scheff, Professor Charles Geshekter and Journalist Joan Shenton.

Sunday 6PM – “The Investigation” returns, with special guest, Jonathan Campbell, as we go through the history and technology of Linus Pauling, Matthias Rath, Vitamin C and reversing heart disease and immune deficiency (AIDS). [CLICK]

Tune in and learn about the AIDS monster….

The news from on repeats like a nervous tick: “New drug breakthroughs could save the world from AIDS! This could be the one! The long sought Holy Grail.”

And every year, we’re sold a new cure – a potential breakthrough!  But it’s always been the same news for Twenty-FIVE SOLID YEARS!  “Look! We’re almost there! Just send MORE MONEY!!!”

So, is it true? Is the new breakthrough new?  Before we can answer the question, we must define our terms:

  • What is AIDS? It is Multifactorial; it is poverty and drug abuse – illnesses that are real! But under the “AIDS” banner, they are given a new label, a one-size-fits all brand name diagnosis.
  • What is HIV? “It” was LAV, then HTLV-3, then HIV, and now? It’s the “Trojan Exosome!”

“It” is a misnomer – another brand name for thousands of changeable bits of DNA, sucked out of cell cultures, passed through chemical stimulation to produce bits of protein. The AIDS mainstream makes a religious item out of these proteins, and grinds them down to synthetic ‘consensus agreed’ molecules, grown in labs. They say they represent one unique particle, even though they’ve been gathered from the four winds! And these proteins occur in people both sick and healthy.

AIDS is a brand name by which powerful pharma companies and governments convince you that the endemic and brutalizing poverty suffered by a majority of the world is somehow sexually contagious, and must be treated by toxic drugs and condoms – population control mechanisms….

On this weekend’s shows, we hammer and shake the paradigm and see what comes loose, and watch it tumble down, only to be put up again by your tax dollars, spent and misspent by Anthony Fauci’s N.I.H.

When will you take objection to the fraud? What if you were given a fraudulent HIV test diagnosis? Would you think, read and fight? Or would you lay down and take the drugs they prescribed to you?

Tune in to learn about this deadly paradigm, and how it has infected all of medical science….

For Gay Men, Even HIV Negative is HIV Positive

Below please find my 2003 interview with Dr. Dan Cohen, M.D. of Boston’s Fenway HIV/AIDS Clinic. (The interview was part of my research for The AIDS Debate series). You don’t have to guess where the clinic us located – no, not in Newton or Wellesley, home to the beautiful (straight) people. Yes, the clinic sits at the gateway to the beautiful and gentrified South End where a majority of young, urban, successful, working gay men make their homes and living.

The images you see interspersed are not parody ads created for this post – this is the face of Fenway Health’s public relations outreach/propaganda for its community. Talk about targeting a population….

Liam Scheff: What’s the process at the Fenway when someone tests positive for HIV?

Dr. Cohen: When someone is tested positive, they get counseling before and after, regarding the test process, they’re counseled regarding the possibility of getting a false negative when they’re really HIV infected.

Liam Scheff: How do they get a false negative?

Dr. Cohen: The HIV test is testing for antibodies, not for the presence of the HIV virus itself.

Liam Scheff: How does that equal a false negative? Continue reading For Gay Men, Even HIV Negative is HIV Positive

Polio – A Shot in the Dark

RTB presents a reprint of Janine Robert’s ground-breaking presentation of the story and data of the first great success of the modern pharmaceutical era: The Polio Vaccine. What is revealed beneath the gloss of press releases and public hagiography is story that leaves you wondering if anything the public health authorities tell us is actually, factually true – or if it is all in service of a kind of modern church of scientism.

You can read Janine Robert’s work at Fear of the and the Polio Myth. In her work, Roberts followed the trail blazed by researcher Jim West, who is a pioneer in detailing the hidden history of the US polio era and medical-scientific response. His website is Here.

Polio: The Virus and The Vaccine – Part 1
The Ecologist
Author:Janine Roberts

There is a rarely mentioned epidemic raging in the world today, one that is crippling children in more than 100 countries. In extreme cases the disease starts with a fever, which is followed by vomiting, delirium and spreading pain. Within days of being infected, the motor-neurone cells in victims’ spines cease to function properly. Pain intensifies as victims’ limbs are paralysed.

In the very worst cases, their chests are also paralysed, which prevents them from breathing. Even when the children recover, the illness often returns in later life. Health authorities say it has no cure. The number of cases increased by over 250 per cent worldwide between 1996 and 2003. It is a disease with a long history and many names. The condition’s official name now is ‘Acute Flaccid Paralysis’ but it was once known as ‘infantile paralysis’/ ‘poliomyelitis’ (polio for short). Some people called it ‘the crippler’.

A shot in the dark

Polio is a devastating disease; the preferred method for fighting it is vaccination. Yet there is a mass of historic evidence that suggests it is not caused by a virus but by industrial and agricultural pollution.

Meeting Africa – Interview with Professor Charles Geshekter

by Liam Scheff

“They say in Africa, when an old man dies, it’s like a library has burned down.” – African Proverb

“Challenging Scientism” talks with Charles Geshekter, Professor Emeritus of African History about Africa, Somalia, the great granite continent, a field researcher’s work, and good things to eat…all in a spot that’s a mystery to most of us on this side of the ocean:

“I used to tell my students that Africa was a huge, complex, and internally diversified continent, a gigantic piece of extremely ancient granite rock that contained the tree where man was born.

With its 11.5 million square miles, 900 million people, 800 different languages and 56 countries, it was and is a tough place to generalize about.

I would speak a few key sentences in Swahili (a Bantu language) and then say them in Somali (a Cushitic language) so they could hear how dramatically different and indecipherable the two were from each other, despite being spoken by neighboring peoples in eastern Africa.”

HIV Tests are Not HIV Tests

Professor Henry Bauer in the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons:

Tests for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) do not detect HIV; they respond “positive” to a wide range of physiological conditions. The seminal papers from Gallo’s laboratory did not demonstrate HIV to be the cause of AIDS. The patent based on those papers did not demonstrate that the proposed HIV tests, which are actually for HIV antibodies, are specific for HIV antibodies.

There is no gold standard for HIV tests. Current practice is to take positive tests as proof of active infection even though the antibody tests have not been shown to be specific for HIV antibodies, and even the presence of HIV antibodies has not been proved to signify active infection by HIV rather than past exposure and acquired immunity. As a result, healthy people may be doomed, without justification, to lifelong administration of toxic drugs. This applies particularly to people in groups traditionally regarded as “high risk.” Outside Africa, that comprises gay men and injecting drug users, but tuberculosis patients and pregnant women should also be included since positive tests are so common among them.

In recent years, black people in the United States have come to be regarded as being at high risk because they persistently test positive at higher rates than other groups, in all economic and social sectors. Black women are particularly at risk because pregnancy conduces to false positives and HIV testing in pregnancy is mandatory in some jurisdictions. The risk of iatrogenic [doctor-caused] damage inflicted through improper applications of HIV tests must be considered.”

Read it and pass it on…

Also be sure to check out RTB’s HIV Testing section, read actual HIV test inserts and medical literature, It tells the same story, over and over: HIV Tests have no standards, no specific reactions, no nada.

Don’t take them. Don’t trust them. Fight against their use. Fight for informed consent.

AIDS is (once again) Over – “Virus Burning Itself Out” Say Officials

by Liam Scheff

It was just last year that the “heterosexual epidemic” was over. And now, suddenly, yes… here it is again. In fact, it was over in 1996. So the experts now say.

HIV burning itself out - AP

Yes, it’s not the science was always bogus, pliable beyond reason, infected with a filthy rottenness that made Enron look like a bunch of honest fellas…

No, it’s that.. well, read for yourself (from the Associated Press):

“Whether previous U.N. initiatives are responsible for the epidemic’s downturn is uncertain. Some experts said the drop in HIV may simply be a result of the virus burning itself out, rather than the result of any health interventions.”

Africa: Treating Poverty With Toxic Drugs

By Liam Scheff
AIDS Debate Part Three
Reprinted from the Boston Weekly Dig, June 4, 2003

“As to diseases, make a habit of two things-to help, or at least to do no harm.” -Hippocrates, 5th Century B.C.E. Greek Physician, regarded as the father of medicine.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO) and UNAIDS, 42 million people around the world are infected with HIV, and nearly 22 million people in Africa have died of AIDS. But AIDS isn’t a single disease; it’s a collection of diseases. When people are said to die of AIDS, they’re known to die of a particular disease or condition, such as pneumonia, tuberculosis, malaria or basic malnutrition. AIDS researchers claim that HIV plays a role in the development of these illnesses, but in spite of this claim, 20 years of AIDS research has failed to prove causation between HIV infection and any so-called AIDS disease (as explored in “The AIDS Debate” parts one and two). So why do we call them AIDS deaths? Continue reading Africa: Treating Poverty With Toxic Drugs

CDC to American Public: Pandemic on the Way! No, Really! No, We Mean… Really! Be AFRAID! And Get Vaccinated! No, REALLY, We’re SERIOUS This Time! No, We Really Are! Come On! Do What We Say!

“I wish they had tested and that I knew for sure whether they had it. I’m not anxious to give them an experimental vaccine if they don’t need it.”

However, the CDC recommendation for those who had “probable” or “presumed” H1N1 flu to go ahead and get vaccinated anyway means the relatively small proportion of those who actually did have H1N1 flu will be getting the vaccine unnecessarily. This exposes them to rare but significant side effects, such as paralysis from Guillain-Barre syndrome.

How are You Surviving the Swine Flu?

RTB: The editors hope you are well and not snorting too badly. We are watching the CDC/WHO’s new panic project with waning interest, but note that they keep bringing in the fear and terror, wherever they can. Below we provide an informal “cocktail” of material you may take with a grain of salt, as an antidote for the ‘pig panic,’ or at least, as food for thought, as the CDC rages on and on…

How a Continuing Polio Epidemic is being Hidden

Excerpt from a chapter of “Fear of the Invisible”
by Janine Roberts

I have been told again and again by health authorities that the polio vaccine is a marvellous lifesaver – and I had accepted this on trust. As no one I knew doubted this, I had no reason to question it. I knew however that it is easy to invent history. If a false history is repeated often enough, the chances are that people will believe it. It is simply a matter of most of us not having time to check all the facts for ourselves.

But now I knew of the possibility that pesticides might cause polio, I had a very clear question to answer.  There were no great American polio epidemics after 1956. What stopped them: the withdrawal of the pesticides – or the introduction of the vaccine?

Most modern histories of the polio vaccine say its launch went smoothly – although many mention a brief hiccup early on called the ‘Cutter Incident,’ describing this as a simple error that was quickly rectified. But what I learnt from reading contemporary newspapers and medical reports was very different.

Aids in Africa – Myths of Sex

Sacramento Bee, October 30, 1994, FORUM; Pg. FO1
BYLINE: Charles L. Geshekter

BODY: THE POSTER is seen in Kenya. Below a lurid picture of a worm wriggling through a human heart, the caption reads: “Careless sex is a fruit with a worm in it. AIDS.”

At the 10th International AIDS Conference in Yokohama in August, Dr. Yuichi Shiokawa put the sentiment in a different way. The African AIDS epidemic, he said, could be brought under control only if Africans restrained their sexual cravings. But Professor Nathan Clumeck of the Universite Libre in Brussels is skeptical that Africans will ever do so. In a recent interview with Le Monde, Clumeck claimed that “sex, love and disease do not mean the same thing to Africans as they do to West Europeans because the notion of guilt doesn’t exist in the same way as it does in the Judeo-Christian culture of the West.”

The Writing is on the Wall for UNAIDS

by Liam Scheff
May 26th, 2008 —

The mainstream medical community is beginning to understand the limits of the Aids venture into Africa. Persons who are serious about improving the lives of the poorest in the world are thinking twice about the monies spent on the Aids campaign.

There is a call for the permanent disbanding of the United Nations Aids division, in order to re-focus efforts on the myriad of problems that plague Africans: Lack of food, water, work, safety, and basic medical care for malaria, tuberculosis, and dysentery.
