Conspiracy Nation -- Vol. 9 Num. 77

("Quid coniuratio est?")


Once a year, like clockwork, the latest "flu" virus appears. Like with AIDS having its mysterious origins in "deepest, darkest Africa," the vague sense is that the yearly influenza virus comes from a mysterious faraway land: Asia.

My parents always heed the warnings each year to "get your flu shot." So, a month or two back they went through the yearly flu-shot ritual. I visited them shortly thereafter. A few days later, by an interesting "coincidence," I was one of the first to suffer the latest edition of influenza.

What if. What if our perceptions are bass-ackwards on the annual flu season? What if the initial introduction of the virus into the population occurs via the innoculations given to ward off the virus, and from there the disease is spread?

Sound far-fetched? The medical industry has gotten it wrong before, for example with Beriberi. Beriberi is a fatal illness caused by lack of vitamin B1. In the 1880s, a Japanese doctor named Kanehiro Takaki discovered that Beriberi could be cured and prevented through proper nutrition. He published the results of his research in Lancet, a British medical journal. Unfortunately, writes Dr. Peter Duesberg in his book, Inventing the AIDS Virus, "Instead of acknowledging poor nutrition as the cause of beriberi, the scientific community wantonly disregarded it. The report had arrived during the height of the bacteria-hunting craze... and microbe hunters were eager to find new germs."

Chosen unanimously to chair the House Government Reform and Oversight Committee is Rep. Dan Burton (R, Ind.). According to the Washington Times (National Weekly Edition, 12/8/96), Rep. Burton has a reputation as one who "goes for the jugular."

Congressman Burton has expressed strong doubts regarding the official version of Vince Foster's death. For example, in the Congressional Record of August 2, 1994 (Vol. 140, No. 104) he states, in part...

Mr. Speaker, over the past several weeks there has been a lot of questions about the death of Vince Foster and the connection of his death to the Whitewater investigation, and I have had nine people on my staff at the Republican Study Committee and my personal staff and some outside sources investigating this, because the Committee on Banking, Finance, and Urban Affairs here in the House that is doing the Whitewater investigation on a party line vote has limited the scope of the investigation to such a degree that one Member said that if the same principles had been applied to the O.J. Simpson case, the one thing you could ask O.J. Simpson is "How was your trip to Chicago?" You couldn't ask any other questions. That is how limited the investigation is. There is a deliberate attempt to minimize the investigation and, I think, to cover up a lot of the facts.

In CN 9.76, Sherman Skolnick mentions the death of a Commerce Department employee. Some readers may not have heard about this previously. Here are excerpts from Associated Press, 11/30/96 ("Commerce Department Employee Found Dead in Office")....

WASHINGTON (AP) - A Commerce Department employee was found dead in her fourth-floor office at the agency's downtown headquarters on Friday.
The body was discovered around 7:45 a.m. by a co-worker arriving for work, police said.
The woman was identified as Barbara Alice Wise, 48, of Gambrills, Md. She had worked as a secretary for 14 years at the department's International Trade Administration. A preliminary autopsy was unable to determine the cause of death Friday.

I received the following e-mail recently, regarding Livingstone Fagan, one of the few survivors of the Branch Davidian Massacre near Waco, Texas, April 19, 1993. (For more on that massacre, see The Davidian Massacre by Carol Moore, ISBN 1-880692-22-8, and The Ashes of Waco by Dick J. Reavis, ISBN 0-684-81132-4)

Just a few hours ago Carol Moore allowed me to transcribe the following crucial details excerpted from Livingston's letter dated 09/28/96:

.... the scars and bruises from threats and physical assaults sustained since my arrival June 20th '96, all of which I received at the hands of prison officers. Last Thursday was the worst yet. After continuously slamming my head against a concrete, then metal structure, followed by my body against a concrete floor (the stated purpose being to get me to fear him), this 300 lb officer then verbalized his intent to kill me for my not cowering to his will.

Ordinarily the above would be considered attempted murder. In here it seems to be the norm -- The inquisition continues. I had tended not to report these incidents, not wanting to appear as though I'm whining. I am not. This is only for informational purposes. It is not uncommon for people to be killed in these institutions and it be reported as selfinflicted. In the event of my premature death, I think it prudent that there be someone independent who is aware of the preceding.....thus averting such fabrication.

The Rev. Chiniquy material (see CN 9.75) really got some people to howling. One reader was so blinded by fury he erroneously supposed that Jack Chick, mentioned as a source for obtaining Chiniquy's book, was the actual author. He wrote in part,

Jack Chick describes convents that never existed, priests that were never ordained, and public meetings that never took place. For examples, refer to:

(Note that I haven't yet verified the above web sites as still operating.)

Finally, news is a funny business: some days slow, some days busy. When it's slow, I like to go to the University of Illinois library and dig for items there. Right now, though, it's end-of-semester madness at U of I. So, for the moment, U of I as a resource is more or less extremely occupied with harried students rushing to finish papers. That means resources are not as easily available as normally.
What this means is, a "dry spell" may occur with CN for the next few weeks; less to report for awhile. But, when the news breaks out, Conspiracy Nation breaks in.
