Conspiracy Nation -- Vol. 7 Num. 34

("Quid coniuratio est?")

AIDS Inc. -- Part 5

There was such a response to the previous CN (CN 7.23) on the banning in the United States of the book Why We Will Never Win the War on AIDS by Bryan Ellison and Peter Duesberg, that I thought I would re-post the following. It is my synopsis of Jon Rappoport's book, AIDS Inc. Because Rappoport covers Dr. Duesberg's challenge to official AIDS dogma, they may be banning his book next! (Or, late breaking, thanks to Rep. Schumer and his proposed H.R. 2580 -- outlawing discussion of what he calls "baseless conspiracy theories" -- they may be banning Conspiracy Nation!)

"In the midst of AIDS deaths, misery, and redefinition, various ideologues who want to purify the world, by their own standards, see big opportunities to attack scapegoats, turn off sex, increase general hatred and expand readiness to allow violence against so-called high-risk groups. They see opportunities to introduce distorted Biblical or medical models of society."

The author, Jon Rappoport, offers some frightening scenarios. One of them involves any Government, under the guise of a medical emergency, imposing martial law on the citizenry. "No better way exists to cement national control than through medical channels. There are no political issues to promote, no ideologies to enunciate. All that's needed is the insistence of medical authorities that the Health Emergency dictates instituting curfews, postponing elections, and establishing detention centers for the afflicted."

Another chilling scenario offered by Rappoport involves a hypothetical conspiracy involving major pharmaceutical firms and the medical establishment. He suggests an "ideal disease... one in which the entire catalog of human symptoms were interlocked... Each branch of symptoms would involve tests to ascertain the exactness of the patient's medical position. On each branch, there would exist various drugs, various remedies. Each drug would have toxic side-effects in various degrees, and would invoke its own symptoms, which would show up later in more serious well-defined elements of the disease."

[B.R. We all know, or we ought to know, that the federal government and its agencies are dubious sources of information. Time after time they have lied to us. What is more,] "convincing federal health agencies to act responsibly flies in the face of tradition established at those agencies which goes back a long way. Take cancer. One of its myths is that it too, like AIDS, is a unity... Demanding a single cure for cancer did not do the trick, and in a similar though not identical sense, demanding a single cure for AIDS will not work."

"Activists seeking a solution for AIDS may end up doing a lot more than forcing the medical research establishment to accelerate research. They may force a revolution in the idea of what health care is. That is one of the things medical bureaucrats are nervous about."

[B.R. The media, characteristically, has offered spotty coverage of this issue.] "At every level of media, there is silence on these elements of the current AIDS scene. Again, this is because it's assumed Medicine is right. Investigating this arena is a no- priority item for newspapers."

[B.R. Yet this is an area in which there ought to be a great deal of investigation, and especially not just by industry insiders currently profiting by AIDS.] The author points to the "AIDS empire," which, through the concept of immune suppression, "is being linked worldwide, pinned to a single virus, and milked for pharmaceutical money."

Rappoport bemoans the disappearance of the media's more feisty and adventuresome days. "Now our papers, our television networks, even most of our magazines are wedded to the idea that a news story does not even exist unless an official agency/body/organization announces it."

The media just keeps "bumbling along, believing they are documenting the earnest struggle of a hardy band of researchers against a plague caused by HIV. This is the way they've documented every campaign against a major disease. Why change now? Just do another re-run. In the midst of this image-making, the simple facts get buried."

"Back in 1980... [the first five AIDS patients] were misdiagnosed. They did have pneumocystis carinii pneumonia and several other infections. But as any doctor should have been able to tell, pneumocystis can occur when there is immune suppression for virtually any reason... Unexplainably stunned that these Los Angeles patients were immunocompromised, doctors made noises about a new syndrome, and pretty soon everybody forgot that the name of the restaurant these ill men had eaten at was Inhalant Nitrites and Other Chemicals."


The National Antivivisection Society of London has published the results of some of their researches into outbreaks of what is being called "simian AIDS" (SAIDS). "The book is called Biohazard, and it is a very interesting look at monkeys, not in the wilds of Africa, but within the wilds of medical research labs."

Among other things, Biohazard discusses the routine practice of shipping monkeys and their diseased tissue specimens from primate center to primate center. The book "makes it clear that the passing of monkey-microbes to human handlers can, has, and does happen. There has been ample opportunity to infect handlers and lab workers... and some of this disease could have drifted out into the human populations of cities. Easily."

"The staff who researched and wrote Biohazard believe that, through frequent injections of an entire catalog of animal and human microbes into monkeys, some germs would have recombined, forming new and possibly virulent disease-agents -- for humans."

The author of AIDS Incorporated, Jon Rappoport goes on to mention two studies of laboratory problems issued by New York's Cold Harbor laboratory. The reports, Biohazards in Biological Research and The Banbury Report, make note of "a number of lab accidents involving animals and the transmission of infection to humans. They also point out that in the worldwide 'jungle' of biomedical research labs... we have a fertile environment for human disease possibilities."

"We need to put imagery aside and realize that laboratories are not temples, and like our nuclear plants, systems of safety are prone to human error."

The author provides a series of accounts in which he documents the appalling conditions in many of these labs. He further shows how difficult it is for full and open investigations of these facilities to occur. "Who would undertake a worldwide probe of lab safety -- and possibly discover that many germs exist which, under current conditions, could escape into the environment and bring about generations of disease, immunosuppression, and undoubtedly several of the symptoms attributed to AIDS? Why, other scientists, other members of the fraternity. Would such researchers implicate their own brethren, especially if doing so amounted to professional suicide?"

The book, "Biohazard, has not been widely released in the U.S. Its discussions of goings-on in animal labs are potent reading, and not just for people who are convinced of the anti-vivisection position. Piece by piece, a few accidents here, a few accidents there -- one gets the beginnings of an impression as to how large the community of animal labs worldwide really is. That disease could emanate from these facilities begins to seem not at all like science fiction."

One of the examples of the potential for disaster given by Rappoport comes from the journal Lancet. In a letter to the journal, authors A.J. Zuckerman and D.I.H. Simpson, of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine write the following: is only natural that we regularly receive material from all over the world for diagnosis and identification... The condition in which many of the specimens arrive causes us extreme concern. Our most recent examples have been badly smashed blood samples sent by post from overseas for hepatitis and Lassa fever studies. These samples were potentially highly infectious, but were so badly packed that serum was leaking freely through the outer paper. There is no need to stress the hazard to postal workers or to those who open the package.

"The researchers who so blithely speculate that AIDS emanated from monkeys in Africa have no idea what conditions exist at animal labs around the world, that these labs provide a fertile epidemiological environment for the breeding of contamination and disease. Or if they do have an idea, and some do, they keep their mouths shut."

The author suggests that we ought to be studying the animal handlers and animal-lab personnel to see what diseases they have developed. Rappoport thinks that we could, for example, track these people to see what contact they have had with persons who have subsequently been diagnosed as having AIDS. "If epidemiologists can command grants which take them to Africa to explore the mysteries of the green monkey, they can take cabs and shuttle flights to major animal labs and start looking for unusual disease there... Why doesn't NIH fund a modest study to investigate what diseases animal handlers and lab personnel may have carried into the streets of New York?"
