AIDS war profiteering.

NIH’s Fauci and Gilead’s Martin: junk science and oligarchic capitalism.

I just completed the above-linked paper after reading an edited-down version of a Bloomberg News story two weeks ago (May 15) in The Washington Post: U.S. recommends daily pill for those at risk of HIV

The full Bloomberg story contained undocumented claims and un-attributed assertions, beginning in the first paragraph, which read:

Healthy people at risk of HIV are advised to take daily pills that cut the odds of infection by more than 90 percent, U.S. health officials said in the first formal recommendation on using the drugs as a preventative.

The 90 percent claim, though attributed to the CDC, is a number that has taken on a life of its own, and does not square even with the summary of findings in the New England Journal of Medicine report by the investigators on the so-called  iPREX study of mostly Third World gay males, in which a  44% greater protection (over placebo) claim was made–itself a gross exaggeration, as I explain in my article. FDA approval of Truvada for PrEP was based on the confirmation-biased iPREX and FEM PrEP studies, fully described (and de-bunked) in my article.

But at least the Bloomberg story quoted some of the opposition to so-called “pre-exposure prophylaxis” or “PrEP.”

The slimmed down version in The Washington Post, in both its print and online editions, excised all references to any questions that even mainstream HIV=AIDS believers have about drugging HIV negatives with highly toxic chemotherapy.

As I claim in my article, junk science and oligarchic capitalism triumphed in the Fauci-Gilead collusion, along with Gilead’s purchase of PrEP approval by the FDA, and the CDC’s consequent imprimatur for Truvada PrEP.

HIV Disease

by Liam Scheff

Chapter Six of “Official Stories” explains why this is true:

If you or someone you know believes you are “HIV positive,” then you have a new kind of disease.

The disease of believing people who tell you that you are infected with something specific, when you’re not.

That’s “HIV disease.”

What people who are told they are “HIV positive” don’t understand is that they have been inducted into a cult. It is not a scientific process – it is one of pure belief.

They are not prepared, intellectually, because they think that they’re dealing with doctors. But they’re not. They’re dealing with priests of death and sex-shame. And as strange as that sounds, it happens to be true.

 

Oppression Unlimited – New Film

RTB: A new film on our friends in London at HEAL

“Oppression Unlimited” is the story of Mike Hersee’s ex-lover, Cornelius Abraham, who died at the young age of 22 years old. His HIV positive diagnosis was just one of the many oppressing obstacles in his life.

Cornelius was born with a heart defect, but was otherwise healthy. His upbringing in a strict Seventh Day Adventist family was difficult as his parents tried to exorcize him and told him that he was going to go to hell for being gay. While dating Mike, he was very psychosomatic and would get sick according to the emotional issues he was having in life. Cornelius was also very dependent in his relationships with people and he quickly became attached to Mike.

Mike had sex as the receiving partner, unprotected, with Cornelius approximately 70 times after Cornelius was diagnosed “HIV Positive,” but Mike’s subsequent HIV test results were negative.

When Mike broke up with Cornelius, it took away Cornelius’s will to live, affecting how Cornelius took care of himself and in Mike’s opinion Cornelius ended up dying of a broken heart (literally, he died of two heart infections).

Mike Hersee is one of the co-founders of HEAL London. HEAL stands for Health Education AIDS Liason.

Mike became more interested in helping people with HIV and AIDS diagnoses to overcome the stigma and pressures that come with the identity of testing positive.

In the film, Mike Hersee is being played by Brian Rohan and Cornelius Abraham is being played by Irving Green.

The HIV Innocence Project – Spread the Word

RTB: An important update from the OMSJ

If you have been charged with an HIV-related crime or civil action – or you represent someone in such action, contact OMSJ immediately.

  • In 2008, a Texas court sentenced Willie Campbell to 35 years in prison for spitting at a police officer.
  • A year later, Philippe Padieu faced five to 99 years for having sex with several women. He lucked out with a 25-year sentence.
  • In December 2009, an Arkansas Court sentenced Christopher Gray (18) to 15 years in prison.

These men were sentenced not because they have deadly infectious diseases but because they did not understand how to defend themselves against junk science.

HIV tests do not detect HIV. AIDS drugs cause cancer and kill. Many HIV medications contain drugs like Sustiva (Efavirenz), an undisclosed benzodiazepine (BZD) analogue that compromises immune function after ONE DOSE and can produce life-long psychological and physical injuries.

A Shooting Gallery and an Hour-Glass Part Two
One HIV Skeptics Continuing Journey

By William A.
for RTB

The Hour-Glass

Over the years, I began to notice the feeling that AIDS dissidents–particularly those with an ‘HIV’ diagnosis aimed at their head–seem almost shackled invisibly together… joined like some godforsaken chain-gang on a remote, dusty highway: When one of us stumbles, we all seem to lose our footing. When one of us falls we all feel vertigo. Someone else’s illness can beckon almost unconsciously, dancing off in the distance like a dark mirage…promising…shimmering…waiting. We seem to obsess about the health of other dissidents, revealing, in our often slightly mad speculation about what might be going on, this invisible connection to each others’ wellness. Or illness. An umbilical cord of wary hope. Or suppressed despair. As though someone else’s ability to survive the rain of death and hopelessness falling on us every day can make it more likely that we will defy the odds ourselves. Like anyone would, we find strength in numbers.

Nothing revealed this more powerfully to me than Christine Maggiore’s death. All these years she had soldiered on through a sea of hatred and vitriol, somehow not going completely mad from the intense scrutiny from the AIDS machine. Yet equally intense, if not more, was the almost unconscious scrutiny of many dissidents. We often live immersed in fear: this diagnosis is like being cast out into a sea of anxiety, a sea that can seem to extend beyond the horizon and it swallows people whole. Though many of us find ways to subdue the monstrous anxiety, I did notice how often others around me would ‘point’, somewhat nervously, to Christine as evidence that one could stay healthy, their trembling finger betraying the fear they felt that it was all somehow going to go pear-shaped anyway. There was a watchfulness about it. A kind of expectant waiting.

Unconsciously, many of us seemed to keep looking at her and then ‘looking at our watches’. I often wondered if she felt pressure to be the exception, or if she felt the many quiet, lonely hands clinging to her for reassurance and hope. I can’t see how it wouldn’t have been an enormous burden, however unintended it may have been by those who so understandably needed some signal, some sign of hope in a world awash with the expectation of early death that comes with this diagnosis.

I can’t help but be reminded of that, creepy scene in The Wizard of Oz, where the Wicked Witch of the West traps Dorothy in the tower-room and gingerly turns the Hour-Glass over and places it on the table, starting it flowing and saying evilly:

“Do you see that?  That’s how much longer you’ve got to be alive!  And it isn’t long, my pretty!  It isn’t long!” Continue reading A Shooting Gallery and an Hour Glass – Part Two

Toronto, 1978

I had a horrible nightmare when I was about 13 years old. I found myself in a large, darkly lit space, a room eerily filled with anxiety and dread. It had no windows and no doors, but for one: on a landing at the top of a single flight of about a dozen steps. There was something behind that door. Something powerful, something terrible.

I wasn’t sure…I walked up the stairs, shaking with fear, feeling horribly exposed and vulnerable. I had to open the door. I had to see what was there. I made my way to the top, and stood there, trembling, and reached for the door-knob. I would open that door. I would face whatever was waiting there…

Yet somehow after a huge effort, I just couldn’t do it. The uncertainty of what lay beyond that looming door was just too terrifying.

And then I awoke. Continue reading A Shooting Gallery and an Hour Glass – Part One

Updated: This Sunday on the Robert Scott Bell Show – 9/19/2010 – “SUBMIT, SUBMIT, SUBMIT!”

Tune in this Sunday!

Hour Two (2pm eastern time): “What Black Box Warning?” or Teach A Doctor How to Read – AIDS may be the death of the pharmaceutical industrial complex. Why? Because the lies are piled so high that when they are fully discovered, there is likely no recovery. From HIV tests to HIV, unverifiable medical fictions are layered upon observable disease states to ascribe superpower status to a retrovirus never actually caught in the act of doing anything at all (see House of Numbers).

What if you were in dire need of medical/surgical intervention and your doctor refused to help you? Not because of money, but because you refused to take the drugs that actually CAUSED the problem for which you now need surgery! What if your doctor did not even know that the drug for you has a Black Box Warning Label?

Could this happen to you? It happened to Karri Stokely. Liam Scheff and Dr. David Rasnick joins me with an update on the outrageous medical behavior threatening the lives of everyone who lives the non-drug life.

The Pharmaceutical Industrial Complex has such a stranglehold on the medical profession that many of their doctors do not even read medical journals, much less the drug inserts accompanying each FDA-approved medicament they prescribe. However, they do believe they deserve the freebies from Big Pharma.

Are you prepared for the day when you refuse drugs for yourself or your children and they threaten you with a diagnosis of dementia? In the era of HIV=AIDS, that day is already here. This hour, what you can do about it.

Update 9/24/2010

Read Karri Stokely in her own words on her ongoing fight to find a decent, non-mafia doctor to treat her medical problems:

SUBMIT! SUBMIT! SUBMIT!

Have you ever found yourself taking a long, horrific, and unexpected journey through the bowels of hell?

Has it ever even occurred to you that you may end up being forced into taking this little trip through the world of modern medicine?

Would you ever, in your wildest dreams, think that you would have to play a game, literally, with bargaining chips, to get a surgery that was rapidly becoming crucial to saving your life? Read the rest…

Does AIDS Cause HIV?

by Liam Scheff for OMSJ.org

How we’ve gotten AIDS wrong for 25 years, and how to fix it…

Those ‘in the know,’ who read and scour and search the medical literature on AIDS and HIV testing, are well aware that neither of these belief systems works according to their promised plan. Here’s how it was supposed to go:

A single unique particle, (originally called LAV, then HTLV-III, then rechristened HIV) gets into the body via semen or blood exchange; it gravitates somehow to the white blood cells called T-Cells; it opens the cell door, somehow, and copies itself into the genome, using an enzyme called Reverse Transcriptase. These cells are then impaired, and die, supposedly. This weakens the body over time and other illnesses occur.

That’s the official narrative. But only more or less, because there are so many alterations and versions of the official story at this point that it’s hard to keep up. “Maybe cells aren’t killed directly, maybe latent infection is really active, maybe constant exposure causes immunity…” The official story has caused nothing but headaches and trauma for the mainstream, as it’s never held together, and no part of it is ably demonstrated or proven. In fact, most aspects of the story are countered by observation.

That is, there is no unique, purified, isolated, gold standard particle called “LAV,” or “HTLV-III,” or “HIV.” There are many divergent proteins that are grabbed out of blood samples through antibody testing, and a far greater number of genetic threads, copied out of cell cultures by a touchy, highly sensitive technology called PCR. All of these are supposed to be “HIV.”

This wild diversity of fragments gave CDC cop and New York Times pharma-shill Lawrence Altman the impetus to coin his second-most famous line: “HIV, the wily retrovirus.” (His first is “The virus that causes AIDS.“)

And right there you have the second major problem. AIDS is about, well, if I said 10,000 diseases, I’d be in the ballpark. It is a disease category as long as Pinocchio’s nose, and as deep as a the Grand Canyon. It grows at will, and can never be filled up – it grows and goes. Any disease can be called “AIDS” if it occurs in people who the medical cops think are “at risk for AIDS.”

HIV Profiling

That’s how it works – literally. You have a fungal toenail? Get treatment. You’re in a “risk group?” (Gay, black, drug-addict, or poor). Then, “It could be AIDS! Better get tested.” Otherwise, you’re just another shlub who drinks too much and has bad hygiene, so take an anti-fungal drug, and soak it in Epsom salts or some other concoction. But if you’re a gay male, you’re “at risk for AIDS,” so you get an HIV test. And then you’re in the stream – HIV death sentence, AIDS drugs, support groups, red ribbons, pharma bills, major side-effects and early (but sanctified) death.

You have a recurring sore throat, and you’re a black woman in the inner city ghetto? “Could be AIDS! Better get tested.” If you’re a straight white college girl or boy, you’ll be told to eat less sugar, that you could have weakened immunity, or Chronic Fatigue, or Epstein-Barr or Guillain–Barré Syndrome, or some other concoction of non-specific symptoms given a three-name moniker.

The mainstream has just about crucified itself revealing that it has no good solution to the ‘how does HIV cause AIDS’ question, when you put them on a pin, or under the spotlight. When they’re feeling particularly honest and generous, they’ll tell you that “There’s a great deal to be known that we do not already know,” and “the specific mechanisms remain elusive,” and, “It will require increased funding and may take years to solve this perplexing riddle,” and so on.

Meanwhile, when making public policy, they’re absolutely sure of it, and don’t wait to tell everyone in the world that HIV is a single particle which is the cause of a single disease, and so everyone (in a risk group) must be tested (meaning, in all practical senses, “The ghetto can line up here for testing, but walk away, wealthy people, walk away!”)

The Emotional Truth of HIV Testing

by Liam Scheff
for RTB

In my eight and a half years of reading about HIV testing, I’ve yet to find a single piece of the published medical record that brought me to believe that HIV tests were anything more than a public farce, a poly-reactive, non-specific hoop that the chosen unlucky are led to leap through, as a punishment for their presumed lifestyle or skin color.

Bu I see the value of the test, nonetheless. Yes, it tests for no specific thing. Yes, it tests for almost everything. But the presumption of the test – in the public and private mind – is that it secures or forbids you for sexual liberty, or performance ‘à volonté‘ in the culture.

A ‘clean’ HIV Test result means that you can be a libertine, or at least “liberated” in the Western sense, leaning on pharmaceuticals to prevent pregnancy, and following no known rule or guide to safe, or emotionally conscious behavior. You can be a lout, a whore, a scoundrel, a trollop, a slut, a dilettante, a flirt, a ‘Carrie’ (a la ‘Sex in the City,’ exploring the world with your gonads, at will and at leisure, suffering only a heart broken so lightly that it mends by the next episode). So we’re told.

This is the great Western cultural lie, that once sex was removed from pregnancy (or pregnancy from sex) by chemical candy (those birth control pills, arrayed in their round, pink Pez dispensers, to be taken for years and years without pause)….that sex, once removed from ancient eternal biology somehow lost its meaning, its natural outcome, and its sting.

How naive were these libertines to think that the ancient mind would let go of its Levitical impositions? We were taught to believe that the old prohibitions had no value – they were the wretched chains of a by-gone era. We shrugged them off and embraced desire, and each other, willy-nilly, and without consequence. But with consequence. With alienation, and depravity, and empty hollowed out eyes and souls, like ghouls, like syphilitics throwing themselves into another Roman orgy, knowing they can’t be made any worse at the end.

And so HIV tests emerged, following the great drug and STD plague that was the payment in full of the liberated ’60s and ’70s. The tests were derived from the mixed blood and tissue of many men bearing many illnesses. They have been refined to consensus agreed synthetic proteins, which cling to proteins in your blood; they will adhere to almost any naturally-occurring antibody to any infectious or non-infectious particle entering the bloodstream. And so we use them carefully – only on those with guilty consciences or punishable skin color or orientation, who wish or agree to be reprimanded for their sexual sins.

That is how HIV testing works – and it does work in that sense. We need it to keep us believing in some limit to libidinousness. The science of it, the technical reality of it is all a sham, but that doesn’t matter at all.

What matters is our belief in the angry God who punishes us for our sexual misconduct. We need a code of rules. We need a rule of law. We have one. It’s that simple. “HIV tests” test for no specific particle, that is not reasonably contestable. But they do test for one specific thing: Fear, guilt, and a need to do penance for our disembodied chemical libertinism.

And so, what can we ask for? A return to an open prohibition against too much lust? A manageable punishment for over-indulgence, instead of this life-long drugged-to-death hate-fueled sham called “AIDS?” In that case…

Long live Leviticus. Down with HIV testing. (Except no sane person wants Leviticus back – and so we keep the technical version).

The truth is what it has always been: We’re all sinners, but only some of us have to pay the angry God to sooth our anxious, tribal soul.

In Defence of AIDS Critics – New Article in the Gay and Lesbian Humanist

RTB: Veteran in the AIDS War, John Lauritsen, writes a strong piece in this month’s G&L Humanist:

Here, the AIDS dissident John Lauritsen looks at one piece of ridicule in particular, and questions why he was not allowed to write a reasoned reply in a British humanist publication.

Profits of the “AIDS industry” run into many billions of dollars every year. When AIDS dissidents speak up, they are ridiculed with often ad hominem arguments. Here, the AIDS dissident John Lauritsen looks at one piece of ridicule in particular, and questions why he was not allowed to write a reasoned reply in a British humanist publication.

According to the German philosopher, Arthur Schopenhauer (1788–1860), “All truth passes through three stages: first, it is ridiculed; second, it is violently opposed; third, it is accepted as being self-evident.” I’d add that, even before ridicule, truth will be ignored or censored, especially if powerful political-economic interests are involved. There is a German word for this: Todschweigen (to kill off through silence).

For over a quarter of a century there have been critics of the orthodox AIDS paradigm, the HIV-causes-AIDS hypothesis. We call ourselves “AIDS dissidents” or “AIDS critics” or “AIDS realists”. We have experienced every imaginable form of censorship and ridicule, and now, as our ranks have grown, violent opposition, which almost always attacks our persons, not our ideas.

Dr Mark Wainberg, president of the International AIDS Society, has called for jailing AIDS dissidents, whom he calls “HIV deniers” (his explicit analogy to “Holocaust deniers”). John P Moore of Cornell University advocates even more violent measures, stating, “This is a war, there are no rules, and we will crush you, one at a time, completely and utterly (at least the more influential ones; foot-soldiers like you aren’t worth bothering with).” (Letter from John P Moore, PhD to AIDS dissident Michael Geiger, 27 January 2007.)

[…]

Conspiracies do exist

Of course, conspiracies do exist. In business or in politics, they are part of the game. While denying the conspiracies in which we AIDS critics allegedly believe, Kalichman seems to believe that we ourselves form some sort of conspiracy. Using stealth tactics and the pseudonym of “Joseph (Joe) C Newton” to penetrate our ranks, he ingratiated himself with some of us (not me), professing to greatly admire our work. This was pointless, as we have nothing to hide and our ideas are readily available. Kalichman seems particularly proud of his incognito relationship with Peter Duesberg: on Page 27 of his book is a photo of himself next to Duesberg.

[RTB – see “Will the Real Seth Kalichman Please Stand Up?“]

The ugliest ad hominem tactic used by Kalichman and others of his ilk is to gloat over the deaths of a few AIDS dissidents, arguing speciously that their deaths were caused by HIV, and they would have lived longer had they taken “anti-HIV” drugs. Without going into personal details, I can say that in every case there were health risks in their lives, having nothing to do with viruses, which could explain why they died.

What about the hundreds of thousands of people, in the United States alone, who died while taking “anti-HIV” drugs? Did the drugs kill them? What about the prominent advocates of AZT therapy who have died in the past two decades? Did guilt cause them to develop cancer or succumb to organ failure? Consider the recent death of Stephen Lagakos, who co-authored a bogus study (Paul Volberding, Stephen Lagakos et al., New England Journal of Medicine, 5 April 1990), which advocated giving AZT to asymptomatic HIV-positives. Driving on the highway in October 2009, Lagakos suddenly veered over into the lane of oncoming traffic, killing himself, his mother, his wife and the man in the other car. Was Lagakos killed by an Avenging Conscience? Why not? The conjecture is, if anything, just as rational as the conjecture that AIDS-dissidents were killed by a retrovirus.

US Government to Ireland: HIV Positivity is Not a Communicable Disease of Public Health Significance

RTB: The US Government admits what HIV test makers have said all along: HIV tests don’t mean a thing (from the Embassy of the United States in Ireland):

NONIMMIGRANT VISAS

Effective January 4, 2010 HIV Infection is Removed from the CDC List of Communicable Diseases of Public Health Significance

On November 2, the Department of Health and Human Services, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (HHS/CDC), published a Final Rule in the Federal Register, titled Medical Examination of Aliens – Removal of Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) Infection from Definition of Communicable Disease of Public Health Significance (HIV Final Rule). This Final Rule amends Title 42 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Part 34, and will remove HIV infection from the list of communicable diseases of public health significance and remove references to HIV from the scope of medical examinations for foreign citizens seeking to travel to the United States. Review the CDC website guidance and Federal Register Final Rule which will go into effect January 4.

Therefore, starting January 4, 2010, HIV infection will no longer be an ineligibility when foreign citizens apply for a visa to travel to the United States. Additionally, HIV testing will no longer be required for medical examinations for visa purposes. Further, applicants who are HIV-positive will no longer require waiver processing by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Review the HIV Questions & Answers to learn more.
