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

"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
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
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:
...it 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
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?"
