INVENTING THE AIDS VIRUS
In CN 7.23 was covered the story, sent to Conspiracy Nation (CN) and subsequently distributed, giving the impression that an attempt was being made to censor the book, Why We Will Never Win the War on AIDS by Bryan Ellison and Peter Duesberg. Here is an excerpt from CN 7.23:
On December 29, 1995 - just two days before the new year - a New York Federal court issued an order that all copies of the book be destroyed. This latest order followed on the heels of an earlier order, by the same judge, banning the book from distribution anywhere in the United States or Canada - even for free.
The impression given needs to be broadened, due to information found in Peter Duesberg's very recently released book (this time without co-author Bryan Ellison), Inventing the AIDS Virus (Washington, DC: Regnery Publishing, Inc., 1996. ISBN: 0-89526-470-6).
According to the publisher, writing in a "Publisher's Preface" at the start of Inventing the AIDS Virus:
Bryan Ellison, Duesberg's former research assistant and original co-author, became disenchanted with Duesberg's and his publisher's insistence on careful documentation and self-published his own version under the title Why We Will Never Win the War on AIDS in 1994. We sued Ellison for breach of contract and copyright violation and, after a two-week federal court jury trial, were awarded a six-figure verdict and an injunction against Ellison's edition.
Given that the later book -- Inventing the AIDS Virus -- pulls no punches in its attack on the medical establishment's doubtful HIV/AIDS pronouncements as well as their arrogance and thievery, it appears that a supposed effort to silence dissent connected with Ellison's Why We Will Never Win the War on AIDS was not quite as it seemed.
Duesberg, author of Inventing the AIDS Virus, is "professor of molecular and cell biology at the University of California at Berkeley, a pioneer in retrovirus research, the first scientist to isolate a cancer gene, and recipient of the Outstanding Investigator Grant from the National Institutes of Health," says the inside jacket of his book. He is being joined by an ever-increasing number of researchers skeptical of the big government/medicine amalgam. His latest book supports previous dissenting opinions regarding the "HIV leads to AIDS" hypothesis -- for example, Jon Rappoport, whose ground-breaking investigative book, AIDS, Inc., declared as far back as 1988 that "on the basis of Koch's postulates, there are no grounds for positively asserting that HIV causes AIDS."
So why should you care if the HIV --> AIDS hypothesis turns out to be bunk? You might figure, "I'm not homosexual or a drug addict, so who cares." Well, if you pay taxes then it turns out that your money has been and still is flushed down the toilet by the millions of dollars to fund flim flam men (and women). Even if you pay little or no taxes, that money being wasted on the HIV fantasy could have been used for much better things, things that could have made all of our lives that much better.
That is one reason why I recommend Duesberg's book: read it to see how many millions of dollars continue to be wasted, lest the giant egos of so-called "scientists" be punctured and they be revealed to the world as humbugs.
Of special note in Inventing the AIDS Virus is mention of the "Epidemic Intelligence Service" (EIS). Begun in 1951, it serves as the eyes and ears for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). It is "an informal surveillance network," nicknamed by insiders the "medical CIA." After their initial stint in EIS, alumni typically move on to key positions throughout the United States. Many EIS alumni have infiltrated the media, such as New York Times and ABC, where they not unsurprisingly nod their heads in sage agreement with whatever the official CDC line happens to be. If you'd like to know who are the EIS alumni amongst those being consulted for their "expert" opinions, it may be too late to find out: since 1993, the EIS membership directory has been withdrawn from public circulation.
A final caution, from Rappoport's AIDS, Inc.: "Traditional sexually transmitted diseases, and the massive antibiotic-dosing that goes with repeated incidents of these diseases, is very immunosuppressive. So one doesn't have to swear allegiance to current AIDS research to favor safer sex."
