Beyond Faust

Also on the AIDS Wiki


The Gay Community & AIDS a quarter of a century later

The terms
Terms such as “right” and “left” are used here to refer primarily to their American concept and structure, therefore do not always sit comfortably and logically in the rest of the world, even though the rest of the world adopts them and learns to live with them, and the inherent problems they pose, especially the American reality of a very powerful religious political wing, that is only particular to America, and though similar political structures are found in other parts of the world, they do not wield the outright political sledgehammer as they do ther, however, the rest of the world seems to have had to adopt and accommodate to this fact, as if it were our own reality as well. This has produced a state of visible total schizophrenia in all camps involved in the AIDS problem especially outside of America, where as soon as one questions all or some of the reasons and motives, from cause to solution, in relation to AIDS, one comes up against one fact: we outside have little real clout, as it was all concocted, imported and sold to us as a ready package we had to just accept, and our unease and at times incomprehesible dismay with many aspects of it, are due to this very important, yet totally ignored fact.

The entire AIDS debate is based on this political reality.

Right to Left from GRID to AIDS

Take the HIV virus and its mythology out of the construct known as “AIDS”, and it’s relation to the gay community or gay politics, and what are you left with? A small group of people, who in the 70’s took far too many drugs, lived a certain way and indulged in certain practices and just got sick as a result. The rest is mass hysteria, fear mongering, lies, genocide, homophobia, racism and substantial political and economic profits for a few and the birth and total take-over of the gay community of “queer” politics and ideology.

Here is how it more or less happened and how it has been held up till this day. It all started in America in the early 80’s, and was exported to the rest of the world as a package, ready with it’s own political structure, new brand of science, mythology, marketing strategy, it’s own language and also it's own final solution. In Europe it was not until the early 90’s that we started to see the machine operating on home soil, before then it was just a lot of fear-mongering, protests and hysteria, all based on what was happening in America. When it arrived the mechanism to silence dissent or protest, or contrating alternative information was already well in place, so we all just accepted it as it came.

The condition was first called GRID, (gay-related-immune- deficiency) but gay leaders objected to that name as it signalled gay people out and they were afraid it would lead to violence against gays, so they all decided to call it officially AIDS. What was AIDS? It was a condition that affected the immune system of a very small number of gay men in San Francisco and New York. The political “right” attacked homosexuals saying that it was the wrath of God, a divine and just punishment homosexuals deserved because of their debauchery. The gay community panicked, and its leaders were suddenly faced with a very difficult situation to deal with, so they turned to the political ”left” for support.

The ideologically dead and politically bankrupt left of the early 80’s saw an opportunity; it came to our defence and a deal was struck between the self-appointed leaders of gay community, and the left. It went along these lines: become victims, and you can fight off the attack from the right. We will give you protection, and help you bury the truth about the causes of this condition that is afflicting you, by throwing in our political weight behind you; we can help you gain influence, power, and acceptance. In exchange we want a steady display of sickness and suffering, as well as a steady stream of corpses to hold up this scam, from which we will benefit politically and economically, and you will too: together and with the help of the media, we can spread the lie and terrorize everyone into believing that there is a “new virus” that is going to kill everyone, not just gays, but everyone, it’s transmission rout is blood and sex. The religious right were shown in practice that gay men were still going to be dieing in huge numbers, so they were happy about that and just consented the deal, much like they still do today.

It was a diabolically brilliant idea that seemed to suite all involved and more importantly; though ordinary people freaked out, they also loved it.

The AIDS industry was born through this deal struck between all these players, and the representatives of the gay community were in there too, as much as the American and French governments were, the pharmaceuticals, medical establishment and the mass media. Science had already descended into total whoredom with Gallo's announcement and the subsequent support of his retroviral fantasy which he never proved, and not forgetting the disgraceful hounding out and dirty crusade against Professor Duesberg, who fired off the warning shots immediately exposing the HIV theory as a scam. Science sold out first, without this move, none of this mess would ever have been possible.

The leaders of the gay community saw that this was a good deal for them personally and globally too, as it seemed to get the whole community off the hook, so they decided to accept it. Government money started streaming in. Agencies and organizations were set up. The pharmaceutical industry came in with even more money; the gay media and press took the lead in spreading the voodoo, pushing fraudulent tests on gay men and everyone else, whilst organizations such as Act Up and Outrage sold out at the first whiff of real money and political power and their opposition to tests and later toxic drugs became advocacy.

The mass media announced that HIV was the new deadly “virus that causes AIDS” and the public accepted it, even though science had (up till then, and still now) failed to provide any hard and conclusive evidence whatsoever that such a virus even existed. The pharmaceuticals gave gay men what they were screaming for on the streets: medicine. That medicine was AZT, the most toxic drug ever given to humans and in huge doses. The results were immediate and staggering as it started killing everyone who took it, making it look like a real pandemic was actually killing gay men by their thousands, and by that time, heterosexuals as well. Anyone who was diagnosed HIV+ with a test; that is clearly a fraud, was given AZT.

The vast numbers of people, who died from “AIDS”, still corresponds to that era, and is defined by one fact: they were all given AZT, and in huge doses. Everyone conveniently refers to the culprit as being AIDS; which they say ran riot until the new “life-saving” chemo-cocktail called HAART appeared about the mid- 90’s. The truth is it was AZT that killed everyone. I remember how we all used to admit that among ourselves in private up until the mid 90’s.

A blanket of silence, censorship, intimidation and terror was put in place by the gay media immediately, and those that dared to question what was happening, had the full might of this new alliance form hell thrown at them, with all the force that such a diabolical alliance of money, greed, lies, fear, and by then; huge investments and self-interests could muster. The gay world had gone from gay party to death-camp in a very short space of time.

Many dissidents such as John Lauritsen, Celia Farber, Professor Duesberg, Joan Shenton, Neville Hodgkinson and Christine Maggiore among many others have all been attacked in this manner then and still are now; following the gay media firing the first shots, the rest of the mass media follow suite. This became the “modus operandi” of the AIDS industry propaganda machine and is still in place now. Even personalities who were once the “darlings” of the gay world, such as Patricia Nell Warren, who dared question what was going on, found themselves vilified and accused of homophobia always in the same manner: the gay press fires the opening salvo and the first accusation of homophobia, following that the lynch mob just goes to town on whoever it may be, even if they were gay, or gay and HIV+, you still got it. It is either that or censorship.

The gay wing of the AIDS establishment has shown time and time again that it is ruthless, determined, prepared to play very nasty and that it will stop at nothing to protect its interest and reputation as our ‘protectors’.

This has gone unchallenged by the gay community for a quarter of a century, and anyone who dares question it is still hounded out and called a “denialst” and equated with “Jew haters”, or called a “murderer with blood on their hands”. They are attacked without mercy by the gay and regular press. Anyone who has tried to stand up to this has been ladled homophobic and smeared publicly. Some have hounded certain individuals up to the point of putting them in prison and causing their death for trying to stand up to them, such as was the case of David Pasquarelli.

Here are a couple of very recent examples of how the gay press still use AIDS to scare gay people and hound out those who question:

Xtra Gay News
On denia
The Big Gay News
On denial
Pushing testing on gay men and fear mongering:

Queers take over the show
Some gay men have done this to other gay men, and anyone else who dares question this Faustian alliance since the start of this dirty affair. This alliance has been daily maintained and renewed without showing the slightest twitch of remorse or care by so many that take part in the PR it needs to stay afloat and keep everyone in line.

The majority of gay men, on the other hand, have used the classic tactic of claiming fear or ignorance about these going on, much like so many ordinary Germans did when it was more than clear that the SS were carting Jews, Gypsies and communists, and anyone they wanted to get rid of, including gays, by the thousands to the camps.

I feel this comparison is totally fair, considering that when people are told and shown what is going on, the vast majority simply look the other way. Try telling any gay man that HIV probably does not even exist and instead of him being hopeful or happy about it, he will probably try to hit you. If he is actually HIV+ then the reaction may even be worse. Try the same on any other person who has any other mortal disease and you will see how at the very least they would be interested in looking into what you are saying.

Why? Because to the gay man HIV is (as of the 80’s) an identity, take it away, and he is left with nothing. The pre-queer queen at least had some claim to a broader intelligence, and a certain intellectual refinement to fall back on, they had read at least one book from the universal cannon, and they referred to themselves as being “gay”, as opposed to being “queer”; which is like saying “freak”. "Queer" is a word so charged with negative ambiguity that only an old-school queen, like Noel Coward or Cole Porter could carry off using it and still come out triumphant. The rest of us just died underneath it.

But with the advent of the “queer” we were left only with trashy vulgarity, and a militant ideal of being hounded victims, an image of death and deformity clad in black with a pink triangle on our chests and with heads shaved (concentration-camp style) and living in self-built ghettos full of discos parties orgies always gyrating to fabulous grooves from house to techno, and plenty of drugs of all kinds to keep us all chilling-out and getting sicker and blaming a virus for it, as well as producing the necessary statistics for the AIDS machine.

I think quite a few of the older queens who saw what was coming just decided to take the AZT and kill themselves to get out, get away from what they saw was the start of a “homofascist” takeover; from the “queer” march and the spread of their dreadful lies and virus. I salute the ones who did that.

Apart from the well know political and economic benefits for the community as a whole, on a personal level, all those diagnosed HIV+ could live off benefits for the rest of their lives, get free housing, and all sorts of complementary care, from therapies to having their astrology chart done, with transits and solar returns, and all for free.

Schizophrenia
HIV also created an insidious two-tier kind of gay apartheid system, based on ones HIV status, which is used against those who are HIV+ without mercy. It involves these HIV+ men who are on the slow poisoning, and have the visible deformities caused by the toxic drugs they take, they are made to parade themselves in public, as a sign of gay victim-hood, so the rest of the world can see and therefore maintain belief in the lie, and in the politically accepted alliance that is supposedly supporting the victims, whilst at the same time individuals use these visible deformities to privately isolate, insult and humiliate those that have them in the gay chat rooms and hook-up sites.

Some go round declaring their “negative” status (this is very popular with Americans) and demanding that anyone who even looks at their profiles should be the same: HIV negative. Those showing signs of the classic sunken face on their profiles are constantly laughed at and told that they are sick and that they are spreading disease and should just kill themselves; I am not making this up you know, I have written about this in my blog and posted actual messages I myself had received, as well as messages others received, all saying stuff like this.

Neither are these incidents isolated, but fairly regular and common. All the people I know who are on medication have various stories they can tell about this. Even those that do not participate in insults and sadistic humiliation of men with deformed faces and bodies due to toxic HIV medication, seldom miss the opportunity to talk about them behind their backs, this is usually done under the guise of warning friends about such and such, saying something like: “so be very very careful he is HIV+ you know…”

If you are one of the men with a positive diagnosis then you are given economic rewards and support in return for the public display of your deformities that symbolise you being a victim for the rest of society, and for allowing other gay men to sadistically abuse you as well, and finally for being a AIDS statistic when your liver pack in and you die. Rewards you also receive for your undying loyalty to the medical profession and its “life-saving” pills, your undying devotion to condoms; which you display on your personal profiles as a kind of warning to others not to end up like you; even when we all know that no one really used condoms, as all negative people look for others like them to avoid using condoms, and positive men do the same.

Porn is a good indicator for this, and just look at what really sells: bareback sells, as that’s what people really do anyway, even though everyone tries to spin the condom yarn, it’s bullshit. Only the big porn companies advocate condoms, and they produce the gay porn that least interests so they are going under, and they know it. Who need COLT, TITAN or Lucas Ent. when you have Xtube and a glimpse of what people really do in bed? It’s all a mixture of grotesque and absurd, but again so in line with the cruelty and idiocy so habitual in the now well-established “queer” psyche.

This is more or less the basic and simplified political background to the gay community’s adoption of HIV as an identity and how it works in daily gay life, and as the political tool that opened the way for the AIDS industry to target and use gay men as they have done for twenty-five years and still do. HIV did what the pink triangle failed to do. It gave gay people a new status and immediacy with their claim to be victims and the world proof that we are good for nothing else but to live on perpetual suffering because we are degenerates, it set new lows in expressions of cruelty, self-deprecation, sadism, masochism and despair and ludicrous fantasy and denial especially for gay men themselves.

Stuck
The left has exploited this and turned it into a political, economic and ideological triumph as it kept the American rancid religious right in check and happy as gay corpses keep coming in. The gay community has been rolled in to be the main investor here along with the pharmaceuticals, which in turn invested in them to produces the corpses, without which the whole thing would not exist. If the gay community as a whole questioned the AIDS myth then it would come crashing down as fast as the Titanic went down in icy waters. This is obvious to everyone who really has the balls and looks into this whole affair, anyone who has the guts not to then look away citing fear as an excuse. It is mainly gay support of the AIDS paradigm that keeps it alive, without us it would fall. The question is: but can we question it?

Things have moved on since those early days and now we have a superficial and tenuous political and social respect, power and a sense of being protected and accepted. We can even in some places get married and adopt children. What no one wants to see is that it has all been at a huge price. A price hundreds of thousands have paid already and some will keep paying for a long time to come to the bitter end.

The leaders of the gay community and the community as a whole have been pushed way beyond Faust; he sold HIS soul to the devil, here, individuals too cowardly and ignorant to know of Faust let alone play Faust, sell other people’s souls to the devil for personal benefit even self gratification…the souls of lovers…the souls of people they claim to love and care about…friends…people they know, or ones they don’t. Bottom line: everyone is involved. Everyone has blood on their hands. Everyone is guilty; either by direct means or by silence or by plain ignorance. We have all been unwittingly turned into criminals.

Bleak house
Finally, it seems like we have all decided to leave this unholy mess for future generations of gay men and women to sort out, as we can't face it all. We are stuck. They will be the ones who will later have to take the fall-out from it all, when the truth of it all actually comes out, and it will; probably when the flimsy alliance between the “queers” and the “left” is simply run over, swept aside, or just simply abandoned, for the more historically obvious yet firmly underground, habitual alliance gay people have always seemed to have with the political right, where if it were not for the religious element, it would be an alliance that would have always been more evident, and also more in tune with what people usually do (sexual orientation apart), when they start to feel more accommodated; they simply just go back to the right.

If you want to look at an example of this, just look at the results of the latest Spanish local elections, where less than a year after the gay marriage bill was pushed through by the left, the gay “barrio” in Madrid gave it’s block vote to the right wing.

What would happen if this occurred; as in Europe it already seems to be doing? The left might feel betrayed, and who knows; it may just decide to drop us all like hot potatoes and even point the finger too. That would be one way of bringing the AIDS paradigm to a crash.

All in all it seems we have been pushed into playing a very dangerous game. We seem to be at the mercy of the right, on one hand, the left on the other, and our own paralyzing terror too, when we look and take account of the fact that all these advances we think we have achieved over these last two decades are nothing more than an illusion, part of very shaky deal, a deal where even just admitting and facing up to the truth will lead to an almighty backlash, the proportions of which, some claim, will be unprecedented in history, and where it is evident that we will have to stand alone.

This is one hell of a deal.

Death Of The Vaccine For HIV

Two pieces of News Just in...

Wall Street Journal AIDS Effort Suffers Big Blow As Merck Vaccine Fails
Yahoo News: On South Africas Reaction To News.

Observations & Questions On Vaccination
Vaccination
  • Is vaccination about injecting some of a particular virus in order to make the body produce antibodies to fight the infection caused by a virus?
  • If people who are diagnosed HIV+ are given the diagnosis on the basis of having antibodies to HIV, are they not already immune to infection from that agent?
  • If HIV has never been isolated; and the tests are proof of that, then what is in this HIV vaccine?
  • If one has antibodies already, then why is one sick?

Well the AIDS establishment dance round these simple questions in the hope of making us so dizzy we don’t see that they are taking us for a ride. Some of us have been on this ride for far too long and want off and now.

Read closely the following piece from the article that appeared yesterday in The Wall Street Journal and how it explains the simple and basic questions I pose here.

“Most classical vaccines, such as those against smallpox or polio, stimulate the body to produce antibodies that ward off infection. But stimulating antibodies that neutralize a broad range of HIV strains has been notoriously difficult, so researchers focused on the other arm of the immune system: killer T-cells, which attack and kill cells that HIV has already infected. Such vaccines have been considered less likely to prevent someone from getting infected; instead, it was hoped they would enable an infected person to suppress the virus and so delay, perhaps for many years, the onset of disease.”

WTF??!!
Is the piece above based on real science, or is it science fiction? Well if this is real science than I am Rita Moreno. This cannot be serious. Does the science establishment really think we are this stupid? This sounds plain banal, and I cannot understand how so many claim to believe these ideas. This is "techno-babble" and not science. If it were not so tragic it would hilarious.
  • "Classical vaccines" as opposed to what? What is a non-classical vaccine?
  • "Broad range of HIV strains"? They can't even find ONE!
  • "Killet T-Cells attack"? Is this Dr. Who or Star Trek?
  • "Infected person". Infected with what?
  • "Disease"? Which one? AIDS is now 30+ diseases and conditions that have existed always.
Welcome to the Monty Python AIDS science world, where anything is possible just as long as it is marketed right, and targets gay men and dark skinned people who are known as the "risk groups".

That's all AIDS is, isn't it? Racism and Homophobia.
Or we can be scientific about it and call it Eugenics.

The Best Shakespeare Ever

A play about people who do evil, and how that same evil comes back to haunt and destroy them. JP Moore, Mark Weinberg, Tara Smith and the rest of the AID$ industry voodoo pushers should all at least see it, as I doubt they are capable of reading it and understanding it, as well as identifying with it all at the same time.


Macbeth William Shakespeare 1978 directed by Trevor Nunn.
Starring Ian McKellan and Judi Dench.

Through his actors, Nunn preys on the audience’s imagination. Instead of spoon-feeding us a steady, predictable diet of horror show gore and carnage, Nunn emphasizes the imagistic poetry of Shakespeare’s language. The language, channeled through such superior interpreters as McKellen and Dench, takes on an expressionistic life of its own. “Full of scorpions is my mind,” Macbeth confesses to his wife. The horror is internal, not external, and Shakespeare’s words have a terrifying immediacy that only the imagination can do justice. I felt a chill down my spine as Macbeth says, “Light thickens, and the crow makes wing to the rooky wood. Good things of day begin to droop and drowse, whilst night’s black agents to their prey do rouse.” The barren set, then, is a mindscape, a blank canvas on which the audience paints its own fears.

The Big Gay News Liam Scheff & Celia Farber Take On Tara(da) Smith And Her Homophobia

The AIDS POGROM
Posted by Liam Scheff on his blog

My letter to Big Gay News, regarding the Aids pogrom.

Dear Big Gay News Website and Readers,

Regarding Tara Smith’s PLoS journal entry on, Denialism on the Web, I personally have tried to engage Tara Smith in reasonable, factual, point-for-point, issue-specific debate, on her blog,

here: and here:

(There may be more, but I only kept track of these, she posts so much on “denialism,” it’s hard to keep track).

You may review these files, and note that none of my concerns are answered, and are usually deflected by charges of ‘being silly,’ in some manner, or, of course, of being a ‘denialist’.

I hold, and extend, an open invitation to Ms. Smith, or any ‘anti-denialist’ to debate, person to person, by email or phone, on any particular issue relating to Aids.

I have asked Ms. Smith to debate the lack of standardization in “hiv tests.” I have asked her if she would use an “hiv test” on herself, while pregnant (this is the protocol for the poor, brown-skinned, African and Indian in the world), and then voluntarily undergo a course of Nevirapine on herself and her children, as she would have all good African women do.

She responded by not responding, and by accusing me of perhaps, inventing the story that NYC likes to use crack-baby orphans in Aids drug tests.

A story you can follow on links through this page: Story

Ms. Smith has developed a reputation among those who’ve tried to engage her for being a coward, and a fraud.

Those are strong words, but returning a question about the use of “hiv tests” and Nevirapine, with libel, gives a particular impression of wanting to avoid certain issues. For example, the non-standardization and non-specificity of ‘hiv tests’; or the deadly, horrifying toxicity of Nevirapine in many once-living creatures, now dead, who took it.

So, coward is a strong word, and so is fraud, but I think they both fit, based on performance, (though I hold open the invitation to debate, and will be pleased to change my opinion of her behavior.

Coward and Fraud - strong words, but let’s be clear; so is “denialism,” which is the term she uses regularly and with specific intent to describe any who disagree with her about the utility of the Aids paradigm.

“Denialism” is a term, carefully chosen for meaning and emotional response. The term asks the reader to equate those, like myself, who look at “hiv tests” and read that they are neither specific, standardized, or able to diagnose any particular infection, and who therefore question their ethical utility - and those who deny the German/Jewish Holocaust of the 1930s and 1940s.

It is not a mistake that the term is used. It is used specifically, to cause anyone with any sensitivity to run screaming from the argument, lest they make the terrible mistake of perhaps falling into “denialism.”

Ms. Smith and her colleagues at the Aetiology blog are masters of denialism - no, not of the Holocaust - but of truth-seeking, academic debate. They wouldn’t know it if it bit them, because their goal is to dissuade anyone and everyone from looking into the big, black boxes that today’s science promises to fix, fill up, or illuminate for us (like the church of yesteryear), but continuously fails to do so.

Damn us then, for our curiosity. But not for denial. That belongs, today, as on many days, to the ruling authority in matters of belief.

It is worth noting that if Ms. Smith and her colleagues were serious about addressing the concerns created by “denialists”, (that is, academics, writers, citizens, scientists, physicians, community leaders, “hiv positives” and “Aids” patients who disagree with her irrefutable beliefs), she would not have proffered her opinion without deigning to balance it against that of her opposition.

That is, she would have openly, willingly interviewed any of those she condemns. She does not do so, and is incapable of doing so, lest she show her empty hand; this is my opinion, of course, and I am willing, as always, to debate Ms. Smith on open ground, to make and answer charges, and seek clarity. As I am a writer, not an academically-corrected mouthpiece for any institution, it should be easy for her to best me, so I await her answer eagerly. That said, I don’t expect to hear from her anytime soon, though I would welcome it.

It is also worth noting that the Holocaust, which certainly did occur, was a holocaust which grew out of a popular science called Eugenics. Eugenics is worth looking up, to realize that the “risk groups” for which ‘hiv tests’ are considered accurate, are those who have always been considered ‘unfit’, by some rationale or another - Homesexual, Gypsy, Negro, drug user, impoverished persons, etc.

So, I invite the reader to examine at leisure and at will, any detailed information provided by any person or side in this battle royale. I leave you with two articles, which I assembled from 20 years of medical literature on “hiv testing.”

Testing 1
Testing 2

I found the experience of researching these to be tremendously educational, and frankly life-changing. It’s a remarkable thing to understand how human beings validate their biases.

Finally, It’s also important to note, that by attacking those who would demand clarity and transparency in the Aids paradigm, Ms. Smith acts as a functionary (a helpful idiot, to steal a phrase), for a particular point of view, not as an interested, truth-seeking scientist.

It’s one thing to assure the reader that “consensus has been reached,” which is a beautiful little fib she uses as a martinet; it’s another to allow the unwashed masses a chance to actually review and understand the material in question, without being told what to think.

Good luck, big gay news.

Very bests,

Liam Scheff

Wake Up Call To All Gay Men

By Celia Farber Posted on The Big Gay News.Com

The gay men who have spoken here must make themselves heard, somehow, to all of the media outlets that continue to maintain the stranglehold that keeps actual voices, true stories, true feelings, out of this very carefully maintained Lenin Bust. (AIDS, according to media)

Tara Smith speaking for gay men is indeed abominable. She writes like a slightly malfunctioning robot–has no original thoughts and less data. As gay men you should demand to be allowed to tell your own history and not have it told for you by people who aren’t even living it, and have never lost anybody to, say AZT.

But in additon to being kept out, gay men are also used as arbiters of where this “debate” stands. You know who I am talking about, the sainted “treatment activists” and other sainted gay media figures: The attack that was launched against me (the latest one, I should say) following publication of my 2006 article in Harper’s that explored corruption in AIDS research, in the US and in Africa, was launched and executed first by gay men. It began in South Africa with (pharmaceutical activist) Nathan Geffen of TAC composing a libelous and false manifesto claiming I had made 56 errors (at least) in my Harper’s article. Gallo and others signed this defamation and Geffen commanded the global AIDS armies to be sure the attack document went out around the Internet, media, and the world, as fast and far as possible. There was nothing I could do except watch them burn down an article that we took two years to compose and solidify.

The first shot was fired by a gay man at The Nation. What was his name? Richard Kim?

Then the marching orders for the rest of the media were clear: A gay man at the most radical progressive of mainstream periodicals had given the attack command, so everybody else could safely follow suit–and they did.

A gay man was quoted in the NY Times Rue Over Harper’s piece as saying that he used to have “faith” in Harper’s and now that faith was destroyed. I forget his name too. Benjamin Ryan?

It struck me at the time that our society is so upside down, our media so wholly sick, that an article describing the pharmaceutical murder of a pregnant black woman and single mother in Tennessee is later depicted as one that gay men lost faith in Harper’s over. Not lost faith in the medical establishment, the NIH, the doctors in charge, no–these guys were losing faith in Harper’s. THAT was considered more quote worthy in that piece, by NYT reporter Lia Miller, than, say, the feelings at the home of the dead woman’s family. Her mother, her sister, her sons. They could have been contacted and asked to comment, but no, instead we were treated to the finer emotions of the editor of Gay City News, upon experience a loss of altitude in his enthusiasm and “faith” in Harper’s magazine. The attacks have been so vicious and persistent that my professional life was made untenable–my work totally mis-represented and vandalized by a pack of informational terrorists.

Can somebody talk to me about what we are going to DO?

People must be held accountable. All those who helped the informational terrorists must held accountable. Gay men must initiate boycotts or in some way find ways to express your rage. It is a rage I empathize with, but it has NOT penetrated the ivory towers of media, so crank it up a few notches. Find ways to insist upon your true stories being told, at least by gay media.

I am going to do my part: I am starting a website that is ALL TESTIMONY. Only stories, only people, only truth.

It will be called The Truth Barrier.

If you have stories you would like to share with me, please write to me at Perestroika22@aol.com

Thank you. I look forward to hearing from you.

Celia Farber.

HIV & AIDS The Scam Of The Century

Why a scam?

Let's just take the tests. They detect NOTHING. Yes you read right: NOTHING.




AIDS is a mythology based on this test and others like it. They detect NOTHING specific. On the strength of this you can get a death sentence. These tests are constantly pushed on gay men, often by other gay men through the gay press.

Check out other test disclaimers here. They all say the same thing: They detect NOTHING.

The Comment That Deserves A Post by Liam Scheff

Liam Scheff is a journalist who responded to my previous blog entry on "HIV testing." I liked his response so much, I'm making it a blog in its own right.

By Liam Scheff


Ola Manu!

Only a slight correction: They [hiv tests] detect almost anything, and nothing in particular.

Enjoy a walk through the literature, 24 years and counting, on the non-specificity of the tests.

This technology is not able, in any field (for any disease category), to 'find' a particular particle, of any sort. What antibody testing can do, is latch onto proteins floating in the blood. What proteins? Many proteins.

The proteins in the test are synthetic, grown in bacteria, modeled, to some degree, on proteins that were found in stimulated cancer cell cultures, stemming from the good old, bad old days of cancer (retro)virology at the NIH.

This is R.Gallo and L.Montagnier's fascination; Gallo looked for a signature, so to speak (a surrogate, a stand-in, for what he thought should be there), in the stimulated, cancer cloaked cells of some gay men who had swollen lymph nodes, and any number of things going on.

He found the marker, the stand-in, the non-specific reaction, in about a third of his subjects.

You can dig through this in his original papers, or in review in the Perth group's lovely analysis of his work.

There was a selection process, that unfolded between and among the incipient 'arc, sida, grid, aids' "researchers", to decide which proteins (of what molecular weight), would be permitted into the final (but not so final) "LAV", or "HTLV-3" (and then, later "hiv") test.

They came to some consensus agreements, even, I believe, agreeing to alter a weight of a putatively "specific" protein, because both parties held a different weight as the more accurate - (molecular weight, measured in 'daltons', not after Timothy Dalton, the former, and slightly under-rated James Bond).

The later PCR tests are a God-knows-what, hodge podge of nucleic acid sequences, excoriated, stolen out of white blood cells, made to align to some or another model of a 'retroviral genome'; bullied into "consensus agreements", that still, never reach consensus.

That is, whenever you look in the white blood cell, and copy (steal) out of it some partial, non-functioning cloned semi-strand of nucleic acids, there have been such substantial differences, that these "researchers" have decided to conclude, not, as logic would ask, that they're catching a different fish every time - that is, that there's no static, specific thing there; but that the thing is "mutating" so wildly that it just can't be held down.

And yet, and yet, and yet. Viral load does not correlate to antibody testing, to health, to tcell loss...

It's all a wonderful game, that they've got going on. It's too dense for most people to bravely throw themselves into. And the bottom line is, most people don't have to care, because the testing Pogrom won't affect them, by design.

It is not within the design specifications of any brand of 'hiv test' to be used indiscriminately on the public. The tests, which, as you've pointed out, test for nothing (and anything), are only "considered accurate", when they are used on certain "risk groups."

This tells you, with a wink and a smile, that the testing process is the punchline to a terrible joke.

Testing is there to give pseudo-scientific validation to previously held biases. Gays, Blacks, Drug Abusers, and the extremely Poor, Only, need apply.

For the rest of us, or as thhttp://www.blogger.com/img/gl.link.gife journal Aids Alert put it, the "1000 white suburban housewives," the tests are no measure of anything, and any 'reactive' or 'positive' result must be regarded as a "false positive."

I will post two articles that I assembled, from the standard medical literature, on the subject.

Article 1

Article 2

Or, you may find the will and desire to look through the database of literature on testing.

Testing

Either way, it's a grand historical movement, much like the Eugenics movement of the early 20th century, similarly abusing a current philosophy of science, to similar, but even subtler ends.

Of course, this is my opinion, or doxa, (but not the ortho-dox-y) and unlike the geniuses at Aidstruth, I will be more than happy to have you examine the arguments and the literature without prejudice, and at great leisure.

much love!

Liam.

Home Grown Talent

It seems right that the only peolpe of note to come out of Malta in the past few decades have been two opera singers. Both are special on their own right, and both highly respected internationally.

The soprano Miriam Gauchi as Manon, a role which she has excelled in, and I love the Carsen production.






The young and potent Joseph Calleja could be the future of Bel Canto. Here he is singing Lucia di Lammermoor in concert with Erika Miklósa.
