Dear Colleagues and Friends of CEIMSA,
Learning to appropriate elements from the environment to gain greater control over our lives is a practice that is seldom encouraged in these days of late monopoly capitalism. Instead, we are formatted to accept the idea of existing as a passive receptacle for the powers that be, remaining hopelessly entangled in a web of deceit, increasingly mistrustful of our own feelings and desires.
Meanwhile the ruling classes continue to rule society, and we seem to be more than ever governed by automatic pilot, conditioned to obey in a mental state of “voluntary servitude,” if not simply inertia.
The techniques of social control are increasingly sophisticated, and ever more effective in the face of massively manufactured apathy. Learning to think for ourselves critically, and to seek satisfaction for our genuine needs, requires overcoming received ideas and deeply embedded habits. We would do well to support one another in such endeavors to avoid catastrophes, both large and small. The ill-will of the authorities has been well established. We are now left with each other to chart a new course together and to overcome the worst impediments to our right to live a good life.
Because of critical research and investigative reporting, such as we find in the items below, we are invited to appropriate this knowledge that challenges the status quo when it is found useful. This “sifting and winnowing” (separating the grain from the chaff), remains a centuries-old, indispensible collective effort to gather the elements necessary for our survival, overcome delusions that are carefully fabricated in our cultural market place of ideas, where the rule of caveat emptor predominates.
Below we continue our presentation of Robert Kennedy’s research of criminal activities in the highest places:

Dr. Fauci’s Strategic Pivot.
Anthony Fauci needed a makeover, and this master of bureaucratic survival responded to his existential crisis with a breathtaking pivot. Suddenly, Dr. Fauci turned to embrace the AIDS activists he had previously reviled. In the summer of 1989, he accosted Larry Kramer on a Montreal street during an international AIDS conference, took him for a walk, effectively begged forgiveness, and proposed a working partnership. He began testing AIDS community drugs in parallel trials, as Senator Kennedy and amfAR had long requested.
Dr. Fauci partnered with the AIDS doctors—the contemporary equivalents of Front Line COVID-19 healers Dr. Pierre Kory, Dr. Peter McCullough, Dr. Richard Urso, and Dr. Ryan Cole (among others)—giving them authority and millions of dollars to launch local Community Research Initiative (CRI) programs that allowed community AIDS clinics to test promising drugs outside the formal clinical trial programs dominated by Dr. Fauci’s Pharma PIs, and to quickly win federal approvals. “Fauci himself was now trying to build a system that consisted of greater access to drugs at a much earlier stage in the testing game,” said Nussbaum. In a gesture of reconciliation with his biggest critics, Dr. Fauci named the parallel track program after Senator Kennedy’s aide, Terry Beirn, and he gave Larry Kramer a seat at the table.
Most ironically, in light of his successful campaign to sabotage hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin during the COVID crisis, Dr. Fauci suddenly dropped his knee-jerk insistence that every drug needed randomized placebo-controlled testing prior to approval. In an extraordinary volte-face, he fiercely argued that if a drug looked promising for alleviating potentially lethal illness during pandemics, patients ought to be able to get access to it, even if it hadn’t been through a double-blind placebo trial. In a brassy display of chutzpah and brazenly hypocritical misdirection, he questioned the ethics of FDA regulators who insisted on placebo testing of beneficial drugs during a global pandemic when people were dying. He seemed to have forgotten that this was precisely his posture until just a few weeks before. Dr. Fauci accused the FDA of foot-dragging and overmanaging drug development. He openly attacked NIAID’s sister agency for its cruel and rigid insistence on randomized double-blind placebo testing for DHPG, a promising remedy for retinal herpes. In order to quiet the AIDS community, Tony Fauci even put AL 721 into trials. Dr. Fauci became a vocal cheerleader of “parallel track” approval of the retinue of popular buyers’ club drugs: “It doesn’t make any sense to deprive those people of the choice of whether or not they want to take a chance on a drug that has proven to be effective, as long as it doesn’t interfere with clinical trials. As a scientist, I think it’s an appropriate thing to do.”
“Fauci transformed himself in the summer of 1989. He became an aggressive advocate for speeding up testing and drug approval for all life-threatening diseases, not just AIDS,” recalls Nussbaum. “Fauci adopted virtually the entire ACT UP program at once and as a whole. It was the kind of flip-flop that comes with a true religious conversion. It was so startling that it appeared as if Fauci had found the light, had an epiphany, and transformed himself into another being.” This sudden flip-flop presaged Dr. Fauci’s 2021 neck-wrenching switcheroo when he suddenly demanded an investigation of the Wuhan lab after energetically forestalling that inquiry for over a year.
By the end of 1989, his insurrection against his own old orthodoxies and his merciless attacks on the beleaguered satraps at FDA had made Dr. Anthony Fauci into something of a hero to some in the HIV community.(pp.158-159)
His success at using the AIDS crisis to bring a deadly, toxic, and ineffective AIDS drug to market taught Dr. Fauci some key career lessons that he would faithfully repeat again and again and again throughout his long regime.
During his battle to win FDA approval for AZT, Dr. Fauci pioneered the strategies upon which he would build his career and then showcase for the world during the COVID epidemic. These include:
· pumping up pandemic fears to lay the groundwork for larger budgets and greater powers,
· incriminating an elusive pathogen,
· fanning hysteria by exaggerating disease transmissibility,
· periodically stoking waning fear levels by warning of mutant super-strains and future surges,
· suggesting substantial changes in how people live,
· ostensibly to save their lives,
· keeping the public and politicians engaged through confusing and contradictory pronouncements,
faulty PCR and antibody tests and manipulating epidemiology to inflate non-verifiable
case and death numbers, to maximize the perception of an imminent calamity,
and dismissing effective off-the-shelf therapeutic remedies,
directing energy and money toward profitable new patented drugs and vaccines,
dangerous and ineffective drugs originating in government laboratories as the
winning solution to end the pandemic,
· funding and orchestrating confirmation-biased research to validate his chosen remedy,
· partnering with large pharmaceutical companies and giving his partners advantages in the race for approval,
· allowing preferred companies to skip key testing metrics,
· curtailing clinical trials to conceal severe safety and efficacy problems,
· sabotaging, discrediting, and sweeping aside more effective therapies, antiretrovirals, off-the-shelf remedies, and non-patentable medicines that might compete with his new patented antiretrovirals and vaccines,
· subjecting competitive products to efficacy and safety studies that are designed to fail,
· allowing thousands of sick patients to suffer and die by denying them access to demonstrably effective competitive remedies, by publicly protesting the existing remedies were not subject to “randomized placebo testing,”
· controlling the key “independent” committees (DSMB, VRBPAC, ACIP) that approve and mandate new drugs by populating them with his own hand-picked PIs,
· presenting these agencies as “independent” and trustworthy experts,
· using the Emergency Use Authorization to fast-track the concoctions through a rigged approval process to market,
· using official government propaganda to market his concoctions,
· employing “Science by Press Release” to control narratives,
· making exaggerated claims for the efficacy of his products,
pervious and ineffective post-marketing surveillance systems to conceal mass
deaths from the public,
over all these testing deficiencies by crafting and promoting enduring
the benefits, safety, and efficacy,
· citing “leading experts” to promote hypotheses that are practically never scientifically verified with peer-reviewed studies or appropriate controls,
pharmaceutical companies to charge Medicare, government programs, and insurance
companies inflated prices bearing no relationships to cost,
that research funding is restricted to projects supporting the dogma, excluding
into alternative hypotheses,
debate and censoring dissenting voices in popular media, social media, and
· promising ultimate salvation with vaccines
In addition, Dr. Fauci honed the skill of always speaking with authority—even when making contradictory assertions with no scientific basis—to rapidly reshape all government pronouncements into dogma, efficiently perpetuated in a quasi-religious manner by the media.
By repeatedly using these formulas for fifty years, Fauci directed his agency away from its core responsibility—basic research on infectious, allergic, and autoimmune diseases that have become epidemic since he took over NIAID—and transformed his agency into a profit-making appendage for itself and for Big Pharma.
Mark Twain once observed that “It’s easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled.” AIDS activist Christine Maggiore lamented this feature of human gullibility when she assessed the mendacious fifty-year travesty of corrupted public health research that Tony Fauci put in motion during the 1984 AIDS crisis: “Commercial interests are definitely part of the problem here, and it’s also our collective inability or challenge to say, ‘All this time, all these years, all these lives, all these billions and billions of dollars. Can we just stop a second and go back to the very beginning and make sure we got this right?’ I mean, that is so hard to do. People don’t even know it’s a lie. It’s not so much a lie as business as usual.”(pp.172-174)
Chapter 5: The HIV Heresies…178
The End of Science.
For thirty-six years, Fauci targeted all federal grants toward the single pathogen theory of AIDS. The “little emperor” made NIAID the go-to agency for AIDS research grants and spent lavishly so long as grant writers toed the official line about the purported viral cause of AIDS, the only hypothesis for which NIAID would provide funding. He used his awesome leverage to discourage inquiry into any multi-factorial hypothesis. The PIs that he funded became his ideological commissars; the growing enterprise became the launch platform for his career as the most successful medical science bureaucrat in American history.
One of the inevitable outcomes of this “confirmation-biased” research was the rapidly expanding definition of “AIDS.” Dr. Fauci’s battalion of scientists implemented a wide-ranging HIV testing program using indiscriminate PCR tests capable of amplifying tiny strands of long-dead genetic debris billions of times. The PCR test could not identify active HIV infection. Mullis, who invented the tests, pointed out that the PCR was capable of finding HIV signals in large segments of the population who suffered no threat from HIV and had no live HIV virus in their bodies.
Researchers naturally found harmless HIV DNA detritus in people with a constellation of other diseases. All those unrelated ailments soon became incorporated beneath the umbrella definition of AIDS. Individuals with Candida or Kaposi’s sarcoma and a positive PCR test had AIDS. Those same individuals with a negative PCR would have Kaposi’s sarcoma or Candida. Under this rubric, the AIDS definition rapidly metastasized to encompass a galaxy of some thirty separate well-known diseases, including Kaposi’s sarcoma (KS), Hodgkin’s disease, herpes zoster (shingles),Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia (PCP), Burkitt’s lymphoma, isosporiasis, Salmonella septicemia, and tuberculosis, all of which also occur in individuals who had no HIV infection.
“Most people consider it blasphemous when you
point out AIDS is not a disease, it’s a syndrome,”37 Paul Philpott,
MS, Editor, Rethinking AIDS, explained. “It’s a collection of
diseases and those diseases get called AIDS if they occur in a patient that the doctor somehow concludes is HIV-positive.”38 “All of the diseases in the category called AIDS
occur to people who are HIV-negative. None of them are exclusive to people who test HIV-positive. And all of them have causes and treatments that are well-known; they’re completely unrelated to HIV. So any of the diseases, when they happen to somebody who tested HIV-negative, are called by their old name; but when they occur in someone who tested HIV-positive, then they’re called AIDS.”
In the hands of Dr. Fauci’s opportunistic PIs, AIDS became an amorphous malady subject to ever-changing definitions, encompassing a multitude of old diseases in hosts who test positive for HIV.
Asked to define AIDS in a 2009 documentary, Fauci said, “When your CD4 count falls below a certain
arbitrary level, by definition you have AIDS.”40 But how do we explain the
many individuals who have low CD4 counts and no HIV?
The growth of the AIDS pandemic was predictably explosive. Using PCR and expanded diagnosis, WHO estimates that HIV has infected 78 million people and caused 39 million deaths. Today, 35 million people live with HIV with over 2 million new infections each year.
This loose diagnostic system and the gravy train of financial incentives for finding AIDS everywhere guaranteed riches for institutions and individuals who signed on to Dr. Fauci’s gold rush. The pharmaceutical multinationals, like GlaxoSmith-Kline, minting enormous profits marketing antivirals to kill HIV, had little incentive to challenge Dr. Fauci’s orthodoxy.(pp.185-186)
. . .
Correlation Is Not Causation.
In May 1984, a month after his momentous press conference, Robert Gallo finally published his paper claiming to have “discovered” the HIV virus, in Science. He also explained in detail his rationale for linking HIV to the AIDS disease by reporting that he had found evidence of the virus in several afflicted gay men. Gallo reported a “frequent detection and isolation” of [HIV] from patients with AIDS and at risk for AIDS.51 Scientists were shocked to learn for the first time that Gallo had found faint traces of HIV in only twenty-six of the seventy-two AIDS patients whose blood he examined. That weak conclusion was Gallo’s only basis for claiming that HIV might cause AIDS. It’s axiomatic that correlation does not prove causation. There were many other viruses, including herpes simplex, cytomegaloviruses, and a range of predatory herpes viruses found with a far higher frequency in AIDS patients upon which Gallo could have just as easily blamed AIDS.
A year earlier, Dr. Luc Montagnier also had only suggested—in his May 1983 paper in Science—that his claimed virus “may be involved in several pathological syndromes, including AIDS.” Montagnier, a brilliant scientist known for his integrity, had found evidence of HIV in the lymph nodes of 72 percent of the forty-four AIDS patients he tested. Montagnier always remained tentative about claiming the weak correlation as proof. As early as 1992, Montagnier told Nature that “HIV is a necessary but not, without the cofactor, a sufficient cause of AIDS.” As we shall see, Montagnier’s later statements indicate that his doubts about HIV’s role in the etiology of AIDS continued to grow thereafter.54 Based upon Gallo and Montagnier’s slender scientific reeds, these seminal papers introduced the idea that a single, discrete virus was causing the AIDS pandemic.
Dr. Fauci has since routinely claimed that HIV was “proven definitively to be the cause of AIDS by Bob Gallo here when he was at NIH.”55 But critics argue that evidence in Gallo’s article is far too anemic to support Dr. Fauci’s characterization. Neither Gallo nor Dr. Fauci has ever demonstrated, using any of the conventional scientific proofs, that the HIV virus alone actually causes AIDS. Rather than allowing his HIV hypothesis to triumph in the marketplace of ideas, Dr. Fauci sent clear signals to the American press that debate on this theory could no longer be tolerated.
In September 1989, Dr. Fauci broadcast an angry threat about journalists who dared to give a platform to Peter Duesberg. He ended with this warning: “And they should realize that their accuracy is noted by the scientific community. Journalists who have made too many mistakes or who are sloppy are going to find that their access to scientists may diminish.”
Dr. Fauci Leveraged Uncertain Tests to Paint AIDS as a Widespread Viral
Instead of using traditional methods for diagnosing disease based on symptoms, Dr. Fauci encouraged doctors to perform blood tests on both healthy and unhealthy individuals to diagnose AIDS. Since none of the available tests are particularly accurate, Dr. Fauci must have understood that his reliance on blood tests alone was likely to yield highly dubious results capable of dramatically overstating the spread of HIV.
In the decade preceding the AIDS crisis, a wave of new technologies, including PCR and super powerful electron microscopes, had opened windows on teeming new worlds containing millions of species of previously unknown viruses to scientists. Molecular genetics not only revolutionized biological science, but also made that science fabulously profitable. The lure of fame and fortune ignited a chaotic revolution in virology as ambitious young PhDs scrambled to inculpate newly discovered microbes as the cause of old malignancies. Making such connections could be a profitable pursuit for enterprising young biologists and pharmaceutical companies.
Under this new rubric, every theoretical breakthrough, every find, became potentially the basis for a new generation of drugs. The opportunity to capitalize on the transfer of information transformed researchers into entrepreneurs and their discoveries into “inventions.” Science became big business.
All this new equipment made science expensive—too expensive to perform without financial upport from Big Pharma and Big Government. Researchers increasingly relied on Tony Fauci and drug makers to furnish and support their laboratories. Long-term funding became the first requirement of any new research. The researcher got his financing, and Dr. Fauci and the pharmaceutical company got proprietary rights on new discoveries. The self-interest of the researcher, the research institution, and the biotech company converged.
Finance dictated the direction of research and—too often—warped its conclusions. Armies of scientists fresh from graduate schools joined the gold rush as Dr. Fauci and Big Pharma grub-staked brigades of young PhDs to prospect for novel viruses in the diseased tissues of sick patients.
It was often unclear that the new
viruses they found in ailing tissues were actually causing the diseases,
whether the tiny microbes were free riders colonizing decayed tissue, or
altogether innocent bystanders. Harvard’s Jim Watson, who won the Nobel Prize
in 1962 for discovering the molecular structure of DNA, fretted that the “gold
rush” mentality was likely to “scare off the sensible and leave the field to a
combination of charlatans and fools.” In 2001, alarmed by the precipitous
decline in scientific discipline, fourteen renowned virologists of the “old
published an appeal to the young high-technology–focused generation of researchers in Science. The gray-beards warned the young scientists against attributing culpability to a microbe based upon correlation without first understanding how a newly discovered virus actually causes the disease:
“Modern methods like PCR, with which small genetic sequences are multiplied and detected, are marvelous [but they] tell little or nothing about how a virus multiplies, which animals carry it, how it makes people sick. It is like trying to say whether somebody has bad breath by looking at his fingerprint.”
Moreover, the evidence linking specific viruses to probable diseases was often subjective and not reproducible. The specific tests that researchers used to detect HIV had their own manner of additional deficiencies.
The most significant diagnostic tools that doctors use to determine if someone is infected with HIV or not, and therefore, whether they have AIDS are:
1. HIV antibody tests
2. PCR viral load tests
3. Helper cell counts (T-cells, or rather the T-cell subgroup CD4)(pp.188-190)
. . .
The Party Line—At All Costs—Or Else.
Critics of the HIV/AIDS hypothesis invariably cite Koch’s Postulates
as the most profound embarrassment for Gallo’s theory. In 1884, Nobel Laureate
Robert Koch, the father of
bacteriology, first outlined the classical methodologies for proving causation between a pathogen and a disease. Summarizing Koch’s postulates for The Journal of Investigative Dermatology, Julia A. Segre wrote:
“As originally stated, the four criteria are: (1) The microorganism must be found in diseased but not healthy individuals; (2) The microorganism must be cultured from the diseased individual; (3) Inoculation of a healthy individual with the cultured microorganism must recapitulate the disease; and finally (4) The microorganism must be re-isolated from the inoculated, diseased individual and matched to the original microorganism. Koch’s postulates have been critically important in establishing the criteria whereby the scientific community agrees that a microorganism causes a disease.”
Virologists—and every trial lawyer and judge—consider Koch’s four criteria the gold standard for proof that a particular microorganism causes a particular malignancy.
The Problem of AIDS without HIV.
Koch’s first postulate requires that a truly pathogenic virus can be found in large quantities in every patient suffering from the disease. The failure of the HIV/AIDS hypothesis to meet this critical threshold remains one of Dr. Fauci’s most exasperating dilemmas. For starters, Gallo claimed that he found HIV virus in fewer than half of the ailing AIDS patients from whom he drew blood.78,79 Furthermore, every one of the thirty discrete illnesses we now call AIDS occurs also in persons uninfected by HIV.(pp.192-193)
. . .
The Problem of HIV Without AIDS.
postulate also requires that the suspected pathogen should only be found in
sick individuals, andnever in healthy individuals. It
is therefore equally frustrating for HIV-only
aficionados that widespread PCR use quickly revealed hundreds of thousands of individuals with HIV and no sign of illness. Dr. Fauci initially predicted that all of these individuals would die of AIDS within two years. Later he doubled their life expectancy to four years, and then to eight. Then he stopped talking about these upcoming tragedies altogether. Today, even Dr. Fauci’s most loyal clergymen acknowledge that there are over 165,000 Americans and millions of individuals globally who carry the HIV virus without ill effect.103 According to CDC estimates, approximately one-third of HIV-positives in the United States do not know their status.104 If this is the case, Harvey Bialy points out, there should be a huge number of people dying suddenly of AIDS. This is not happening. In fact, the vast majority of those who test positive for HIV remain healthy for years. Duesberg and other critics argued that there is meager proof that people with HIV alone will not live a normal life span.
Dr. Fauci has also taken energetic precautions to ensure that nobody study the prevalence of healthy HIV-infected people. In July 1996, Newsday reported that Dr. Fauci had suddenly aborted a $16 million, five-year study of the phenomenon midstream. According to journalist Laurie Garrett’s July 11 story in Newsday, “Key HIV Contract Is Killed: Some See Retribution at Hands of NIH Official,” was the largest study on HIV AIDS ever commissioned, involving research from over 100 scientists from leading institutions, including Harvard, the Aaron Diamond AIDS Research Center (in Manhattan), Northwestern University (Chicago), Duke University (North Carolina), and the University of Alabama. One of the study’s central purposes was to examine the question that Dr. Fauci apparently didn’t want answered, why some HIV infected individuals never succumb to AIDS. The five-year contract, which began in 1994, to fund this collaboration (formerly named the Correlates of HIV Immune Protections, or CHIPS), has no parallel in US “AIDS” research. Dr. Fauci’s action effectively scuttled a year’s worth of work by about 100 independent scientists. Aaron Diamond’s Dr. David Ho told Garrett, “I’d like to see if Tony could find a contract anywhere in his portfolio that could match the productivity of this one.”
Newsday reported that the shocking cancellation was a retaliation against a group of younger scientists among this group who had signed a report (the “Levine Report”) that criticized NIH’s policy of only funding research that supported Dr. Fauci’s HIV/AIDS orthodoxies. “This is payback time for Tony Fauci,”108 said AIDS activist Gregg Gonsalves of Treatment Action Group, the offshoot of ACT UP formed to openly receive Pharma funding. He told Newsday, “It was an act of retribution by Tony Fauci, plain and simple.”109 In reporting the incident, the New York Native quoted NIAID insiders (New York Native, July 22, 1996), complaining that Dr. Fauci had fostered a reprisal culture at NIH. They said that their boss’s favorite expression was “What goes around comes around.” Gonsalves called the cancellation a “vendetta” against the young scientists in the group who dared to ask for science-based funding strategies. It’s just as likely that Dr. Fauci was searching for an excuse to terminate a study that threatened the entire HIV/AIDS paradigm.
The Problem with Isolating the Virus.
Koch’s second postulate is that the virus can be isolated from an ill individual and made to grow in pure culture. Highly respected scientists including Éttienne de Harven argued that HIV has never been isolated or grown in pure culture. Both Montagnier and Gallo have periodically acknowledged this deficiency.
Instigating Disease with Cultured
postulate requires that the cultured microorganisms should cause disease when
introduced into healthy individuals. Duesberg and
others argue, till this day, that this proof is incomplete. In 1984, Montagnier acknowledged that: “The only way to prove that
HIV causes AIDS is to show this on an animal model.”
No one has tried injecting HIV into a healthy human being, but scientists have stuck all kinds of mice and rats and monkeys and chimpanzees, and none of them got anything resembling human AIDS. No one has yet been able to induce AIDS by inoculating a healthy experimental animal with the cultured microorganism.
“There is no animal model for AIDS,” agreed Nobel Laureate for Chemistry Walter Gilbert in 1989,113 “and where there is no animal model, you cannot establish Koch’s postulates.” This failure, by itself, said Gilbert, left such a gaping hole in Gallo’s theory that he “would not be surprised if there were another cause of AIDS and even that HIV is not involved.”
Evolutionary biologist James Lyons-Weiler argues that genetic sequencing of infected individuals proves sexual transmission of HIV. He also points to a 1991 judicial decision against a Florida dentist, Dr. David Acer, who allegedly infected five patients with a contaminated drill, as definitive proof of Koch Postulate 3.Subsequent investigations by 60 Minutes and others raised new doubts about the Acer verdict.
Re-Isolating the Pathogen.
Koch’s fourth and final postulate is that the microorganism must be re-isolated from this inoculated experimental diseased host.
Duesberg argues that vigorous efforts by HIV/AIDS proponents
to satisfy the postulates have all failed. In Djamel Tahi’s 1996 documentary AIDS—The Doubt, Professor Luc Montagnier admitted that after years of trying, no one had
succeeded: “There is no scientific proof.” Montagnier
therefore concludes, “that HIV causes AIDS.”119 Koch’s
principles are still taught to every student of epidemiology, but his name is
now a source of embarrassment rather than admiration and affection among AIDS
From cases I have litigated, I know that entire court cases hinge on the capacity of the attorneys and scientists to persuade a fact finder that the proponent of causation has satisfied Koch’s postulates. It is the standard protocol for proving the causative relationship of a pathogen to a particular disease. Therefore, it came as a shocking revelation for me to learn that there remain possibly viable arguments that the HIV/AIDS hypothesis had consistently failed that standard. In the American judicial system, that evidence would normally be sufficient to close a case. I am not opining on the science here.(pp.196-198)
. . .
Enforcing Consensus in a Sea of Dissenting Voices.
The press long ago stopped reporting voices of dissent, but you
now know, those voices are real. “It’s like dying in outer space,” Ortleb told me. “No one can hear you scream.” But before
questioning the orthodoxy became career suicide, some of the world’s most prestigious
scientists expressed such skepticism. It’s worth revisiting some of these
“We do not yet know how HIV causes AIDS,” Dr. John Coffin of
Tufts University, a member of the international committee that named the virus,
told the delegates to the
Sixth International Conference on AIDS in June, 1990.
Dr. Shyh-Ching Lo, director of AIDS Pathology at the United States Armed Forces Institute of Pathology from 1986 through 2008, insisted that HIV could not be the sole cause of AIDS.
In 2002, Dr. Bruce Evatt, CDC’s
director of the Division of Hematology, lamented that the CDC went to the
public with statements for which there was “almost no evidence.
We did not have proof it was a contagious agent.”
In September of 2004, Reinhard Kurth, former director of the Robert Koch Institute (one of the pillars of mainstream AIDS research), conceded in Der Spiegel: “We don’t exactly know how HIV causes disease.”
In 1987, physiologist and MacArthur grant winner Robert Root-Bernstein told ABC correspondent John Hockenberry that he does not believe that HIV is necessarily the cause or the sole cause of “AIDS”: “I’ve had people tell me bluntly that, ‘I agree totally with your viewpoint that there are probably other things involved, that HIV can’t cause AIDS by itself, that maybe you can get AIDS in the absence of HIV, but I’m not going to risk my million dollars of funding by saying that.’”
Harvard Nobel Prize–winning molecular biologist Walter Gilbert told Hockenberry, “The major thing that concerns me, like calling HIV the cause of AIDS, is that we do not have a proof of causation. That’s our major reason for being concerned.”143 Gilbert also said the problem with the HIV theory is the argument that “all cases of AIDS are associated with the virus and there is an inference made that all people with the virus will ultimately come down with AIDS. That’s of course, not known to be a fact.”
South Africa’s pioneering AIDS researcher and physician, Dr. Joseph Sonnabend, chimed in: “The harm in the whole notion of the speculation being presented as fact is that if the speculation proved to be true, that means that research on whatever is truly going on has been neglected and this, of course, with a disease like AIDS, can be translated into the loss of tens of thousands of lives.”
Says prominent New York AIDS doctor Michael Lange, assistant head of Infectious Diseases and Epidemiology at St. Luke’s Hospital: “We’ve lost . . . years in AIDS drug development . . . because of the Gallo/Essex/Haseltine axis boycotting other ideas.”
This chapter has outlined a meager skeletal description of just a few of the most common critiques of the hypothesis Dr. Fauci defends at all costs. Interested readers may find much more eloquent and thorough investigations in a number of books by various authors. Perhaps the best of these is mathematician Rebecca Culshaw’s Science Sold Out. Culshaw was an AIDS researcher who slowly became disillusioned by the gaping chasms in the HIV/AIDS hypothesis, and by government corruption in maintaining the orthodoxy. Her book offers a sociological explanation as to how the theory was anointed by the media and scientific community. Other important books are Dues-berg’s Inventing the AIDS Virus, Lauritsen’s book The AIDS War,Osler’s Web by Hillary Johnson, and Harvey Bialy’sOncogenes, Aneuploidy, and AIDS. I also recommend “The Deconstruction of the AIDS” article by Yale mathematician Serge Lang, and an insightful chapter titled “Fear and Lawyers in Los Angeles” in Kary Mullis’s Dancing Naked in the Mind Field.
Instead of civilly debating these dissidents and writers and common-sense questions posed by Duesberg and other critics, Dr. Fauci’s strategy has been to exercise his frightening capacity to silence dissent and mangle reputations. History may credit him as the progenitor—even the inventor—of cancel culture.
My purpose here is not to take sides, much less to resolve disputes that have so far defied resolution for decades. Rather, I’m sharing something few people have been allowed to know: That there is a dispute, and that Tony Fauci has not allowed study that might resolve it. My hope is to chronicle Tony Fauci’s role as high priest of an orthodoxy that today supports a multibillion-dollar global enterprise. Over the years, Dr. Fauci has deflected and evaded scientific debate and transformed theories into quasireligious dogma, punishing and silencing dissent the way the Inquisition punished heresy. America’s Doctor has never given the American taxpayers—or AIDS sufferers, 53 percent of whom are, in the United States, people of color —proof that AZT or its successive antivirals provide beneficial impacts on mortality. It seems fair, if not dangerous, to ask for that proof.(pp.202-204)

Tribute to John Lauritsen, Author of ‘Poison by Prescription: The AZT Story’

“John [Lauritsen] was funny, coolly intelligent, detached and yet passionate, a brilliant writer and journalist who saw through the illusions spun around the 'AIDS epidemic' right from the start.” Lauritsen, author of “Poison by Prescription: The AZT Story,” died March 5 in Dorchester, Massachusetts.
World Health Assembly agrees to launch process to develop historic global accord on pandemic prevention, preparedness and response
News Release, December 1, 2021
In a consensus decision aimed at protecting the world from future infectious diseases crises, the World Health Assembly today agreed to kickstart a global process to draft and negotiate a convention, agreement or other international instrument under the Constitution of the World Health Organization to strengthen pandemic prevention, preparedness and response.
Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO Director-General, said the decision by the World Health Assembly was historic in nature, vital in its mission, and represented a once-in-a-generation opportunity to strengthen the global health architecture to protect and promote the well-being of all people.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has shone a light on the many flaws in the global system to protect people from pandemics: the most vulnerable people going without vaccines; health workers without needed equipment to perform their life-saving work; and ‘me-first’ approaches that stymie the global solidarity needed to deal with a global threat,” Dr Tedros said.
“But at the same time, we have seen inspiring demonstrations of scientific and political collaboration, from the rapid development of vaccines, to today’s commitment by countries to negotiate a global accord that will help to keep future generations safer from the impacts of pandemics.”

This episode of “Friday Roundtable” bears a heavy reality about the bullying and coercion within the military on those who are unvaccinated for COVID. Three military members share stories of men stuck overseas, paying thousands out-of-pocket to support their livelihoods, suicides as a result of pressures and lack of support, punishment on individuals by leadership, and more. Despite their right to refuse these experimental vaccines, those in power continue to push, displace, and punish them for making that choice.

Reality vs. Illusion. People have been Robbed of their Ability to "Decipher between Fact and Fiction"
CIA Director, William Casey is reputed to have said to Ronald Reagan ‘We’ll know our disinformation is complete when everything the American public believes is false.’
Fast forward thirty years, and there’s no piece of fiction the masses will not swallow.
From Woke to COVID to the war in Ukraine, people no longer make their own ideological pilgrimages to the truth – the truth is served oven-ready by their political betters.
Nowadays, there’s little distinction between the two hemispheres: reality and illusion. It’s not so much that people have been robbed of their ability to decipher between these two, it’s that facts have been reoriented into fiction and fiction into facts. It’s a degradation of epistemology so momentous, that people don’t even know that they don’t know that they don’t know what’s happening, to quote one former anarchist.

Corruption? Watchdog Group Claims $300 Million In 'Royalties' Paid To Fauci, Others
with Ron Paul
A corruption watchdog group has examined National Institutes of Health records and determined that as much as $300 million dollars has been paid to NIH employees, including Fauci, over the past ten years as "royalties" for their discoveries. Is this unique, or just another example of the evils of public/private entities. Also today, the Pentagon is scrambling for new weapons to send to Ukraine - weapons makers are thrilled. Finally: as to be expected, Congress adds a few billion to Biden's military aid package to Ukraine (while Americans pay up to seven dollars for a gallon of gas).
