- First let's begin with a discussion of what properties
constitute an effective biological warfare agent. The Media, The Centers
For Disease Control and The Department of Defense would have us believe
that the most threatening biological agents are lethal microbes which cause
acute disease and then death...such as anthrax and smallpox. It appears
that we are being intentionally misled as to where the real danger lies.
- Government biological warfare documents speak of incapacitating
agents as being the most effective at disabling a nation. When a population
is infected with a lethal agent, it is very obvious that measures need
to be taken such as quarantine, antibiotics, etc. This helps to curb and
abort the epidemic.
- A much more discreet, diabolical and effective method
of disabling a country would be to employ a moderately infectious organism
or combination (Russian Doll Cocktails) which would pass slowly through
the population unnoticed. Some of the criteria for effective disabling
- 1. A biological agent which lacks objective signs that
can be determined by medical testing. Many patients who are extremely ill
with mycoplasma or lyme infections are told all their tests are normal
therefore their problems must be all in their heads. Many people labeled
with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia are told the same thing....if
they would only get a new job, hobby or begin to excercise...then they
would be fine.
- 2. An agent which would produce so many symptoms throughout
the body that it would appear that the patient was malingering or faking.
This criteria prevents the medical community from taking the disease seriously
and in the meantime it passes quietly through the population being labeled
as many separate diseases and conditions.
- 3. If the disabling agent is a combination of several
diseases, some of which could be genetically engineered, then it becomes
very difficult if not impossible to diagnose and treat.
- 4. Diseases which are spread by insect vectors are very
much sought after. This makes an epidemic much easier to pass off as a
natural event while concealing the identity of the perpetrators.
- Dr. Donald MacArthur who was in charge of the developement
and testing of biological weapons for the Pentagon had this to say at a
Hearing before a Subcommittee of the Committee on Appropriations in 1969.
- "Incapacitating agents are a more recent developement
and are largely in the R&D phase (in 1969). In fact the prime emphasis
in agent R&D is on developing better incapacitating agents. We are
synthesizing new compounds and testing them in animals. I should mention
that there is a rule of thumb we use before an agent can be classified
as an incapacitant, we feel that the mortality should be very low. Therefore
the ratio of the lethal dose to the incapacitating dose has to be very
high. Now this is a technical job. We have some of the top scientists in
the country working for years on how to get more effective incapacitating
agents. It is not easy." He also tells us that an incapacitating agent
"imposes a greater logistic burden on the enemy when he has to look
after the disabled people."
- When a large portion of the population is sick and unable
to work, this puts an enormous strain on the economy. I predict that if
we do not make this issue an immediate priority, our country will indeed
become quickly disabled.
- The next logical question would be...does Lyme Disease
and it's coinfections fit into this scenerio? Certain doctors and researchers
feel that lyme disease and it's coinfections....such as mycoplasma fermentens
(patented by the U,S. Army) are actually microrganisms with excellent credentials
for qualifying as disabling biowarfare agents..
- Much controversey surrounds the diagnosis and treatment
of Lyme Disease and mycoplasma induced illnesses such as Gulf War Illness.
Professor Garth Nicolson and Lieutenant Joyce Riley....among others...are
seeing evidence everywhere that one cause of Gulf War Illness is microbial
and that it is spreading to the families of the veterans and then on to
the public in general. Many who become ill with this mycoplasma and or
the lyme spirochete are being divided up into separate disease labels such
as Multiple Sclerosis, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Alzheimer's,
Bi Polar Depression, Lupus,, ALS, etc. Most of these disease labels have
no known definitive tests, causes or cures...only symptomatic treatments.
- The Lyme Spirochete (borrelia burgdorferi..Bb ) and mycoplasma
fermentens are both extremely pathogenic and can cause problems in every
body system. In fact they present with symptoms so similar to each other
that one has to wonder what the connection is. Sufferers of Lyme Disease
are very often coinfected with mycoplasmas, babesia, erlichiosis, Rocky
Mountain Spotted Fever and certain viruses. We are told that Lyme Disease
has been around for hundreds of years and that ticks are filthy organisms
which can spread many diseases in one single bite. This apppears to be
true but is this due to a natural evolutionary process or is this sudden
proliferation of countless coinfections a process which has had some help
from biowarfare researchers? Are all these ticks carrying multipathogens
naturally this way or are they the result of The Russian Doll Cocktail
concept? Have ticks themselves been modified to endure harsh weather extremes?
The ticks that carry Lyme Disease appear to be surviving in climates previously
inhospitable to this species. In fact this disease is becoming endemic
in many parts of the world at once and seems to be just as controversial
everywhere it spreads. Why is this? If Lyme Disease is an unaltered ancient
organism then shouldn't the medical community be aware of it's very diverse
symptom complex? Shouldn't they know that it is a Great Imitator such as
it's close relative Syphilis? Global warming always seems to be one of
the excuses used when insect vectors cross their climate boundaries...but
maybe it's due to genetic engineering. For example...Ades Japonicus is
a genetically altered strain of mosquito and is purported to be the most
efficient vector for West Nile Virus. It just happened to appear over here....out
of it's native habitat...just in time to be an efficient vector for the
West Nile Virus outbreak.
- Borrelia burgdorferi...Bb...the causative agent of Lyme
Disease presents with persistent infection and is many times incurable
with the standard antibiotic regimes. While usually antibiotics are necessary
in controlling and improving the lyme infection, it appears the organism
may never be totally erradicated. It is known that there are techniques
used to enhance bacterial resistance to antibiotics. So....while on the
one hand the medical authorities are warning us of the dangers of the overuse
of antibiotics and even limiting their valid applications...on the other
hand they are creating and perhaps even letting loose antibiotic resistant
- In 1984 Secretary of State Casper Weinberger reported
"Normally harmless, non disease producing organisms could be modified
to become highly toxic or produce disease which an opponent has no known
treatment or cure." (Soviet Military Power, 1984, p. 73.
- Patients are being denied antibiotics for chronic persistent
lyme. Doctors who are treating these chronic patients are being investigated
and many have already had their licenses removed. Many are told they are
malingering...that they either have antibiotic seeking behavior, depression
or autoimmune disease.
- One could say that Bb is most definitely an excellent
candidate as a biological warfare agent. Bb has been shown to pass from
mother to fetus. Many feel that it can be sexually transmitted. Why are
no studies being done in this area? It has been found in semen, tears,
breast milk and other insects in addition to ticks. With lyme disease there
is no immunity. One can be infected and reinfected. The disease is responsible
for neuropsychiatric problems, marriages are often disrupted and patients
are losing their jobs and their homes. Many of our nation's children are
being labeled with learning disabilities when the cause is often lyme disease.
I am also wondering if vaccines are contaminated with Bb and or mycoplasmas?
Is there any way vaccine batches can be independantly studied? Well, there
should be , don't you think?
- I recieved an abstract the other day put out by Brookhaven
National Labs. I am including it below and will let readers come to their
own conclusions. It sounds to me as if it is felt that Bb, erlichia and
babesia are biological warfare candidates.

- Rapid Detection and Identification of Zoonotic Pathogens
- Abstract: DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Zoonotic
pathogens including those transmitted by insect vectors are some of the
most deadly of all infectious diseases known to mankind. In the past, wars
and natural disasters were the main catalysts that promoted epidemics of
these ancient afflictions, which are normally transmitted by fleas, lice
- Many of these diseases remain endemic in various regions
of the world and therefore pose serious threats to U.S. armed forces troops
and civilians who might enter endemic disease zones. A number of these
agents have been further weaponized and are widely recognized as being
the most significant biothreat agents.
- Study of disease agents and development of rapid means
for their detection take on added importance in light of the use of anthrax
for a bioterror attack on the U.S.A. The aim of this proposal is to modify
a novel DNA-based methodology we have developed for profiling genomic DNAs
to permit rapid, cultivation-free differential detection and identification
of biothreat infectious agents in their natural environments, including
intermediate infected hosts, and clinical specimens from humans or infected
- We plan to use Borrelia burgdorferi, the arthropod-borne
etiologic agent of Lyme disease and Yersinia pestis, the etiologic agent
of plague, as our principle test agents to work through the systems. We
will begin with B. burgdorferi since although it has a complicated life-cycle
involving both arthropod and animal intermediates, it is easy to grow and
we have extensive experience in working with it in different complex environments
including ticks, rodents and human samples.
- Thus it gives us the opportunity of detecting this pathogen
in a variety of complex environments. We also have significant experience
with characterizing and identifying subtle changes in the genome of Y.
pestis utilizing genomic signature tags. We will use these methods as the
foundation of new, high-throughput sequence-based systems to detect zoonotic
and/or vector-borne biothreat agents such as Yersinia pestis, Francisella
tularensis, Rickettsia ricketsii and other human pathogens such as Ehrlichia
and Babesia species.
- This technology can ultimately be adapted as a sensitive
method to detect specific DNA signature sequences from both known and unknown
pathogens in a wide variety of complex environments and since it is PCR-based
it has the advantage that only minimal quantities of starting material
are needed for analysis.

- It is interesting to note that many of the first outbreaks
of these diseases occurred in areas adjacent to military or biological
testing facilities such as Plum Island. In fact Erlichia Chaffiensis, one
of the tickborne coinfections, is actually named after Fort Chaffi where
it was first isolated. The United States has a long history of conducting
field experiments on it's own citizens without their knowledge or consent.
The U.S. Code, Sec. 50 states it is legal to do so.
- When I speak to others concerning the possibility that
our country is already being intentionally decimated by several insiduous
pathogens, they find it hard to believe that certain officials in our government
may be allowing this to happen.
- In relation to this concern I would like to include part
of an e-mail which was sent to me by one of those government officials.
I had written an article concerning the fear mongering surrounding the
flu vaccine issue being promoted by The Powers That Be. Someone from the
government saw my article and posted it to one of their private lists.
A congressman on this list then temporarily added me to this list because
they were discussing my article. It was being sarcastically criticized
and I responded back to them. The gentleman who had been the most negative
with his comments was surprised to find out I had been able to read his
comments. Part of his response to me, which follows, is an indication of
the mindset of some of our leaders.
- He was asking me if I really thought that the article
"Manipulation Through Fear...And It's Working" would really wake
people up. While he agreed that the press was manipulating us....listen
to his other thoughts. "If someone is stupid enough to wait in a 2
hour line for a flu shot or withdraw half of their child's college savings
to buy 6 years worth of non perishable food and gas masks for their Y2K
bunker, don't you think they deserve it? Perhaps the real question is,
why are Americans so stupid and gullible to believe everything we read
in the media, or to go further, every piece of forwarded chain e-mail we
read spurting off the latest conspiracy theory? The way I see it, it's
social Darwinism baby. And the more morons that leave this God forsaken
earth, the happier I am. After all, I don't want to be sharing my rations
with anyone in my WMD bunker. By the way, I am one of those "Powers
that Be" :=) You must infiltrate before you can make the system capitulate."
- I wrote back to him briefly expressing my sadness that
he must have had many difficulties in life to harden his heart so.
- I have spoken to a Red Cross pathologist who admitted
that the Red Cross does not screen it's blood supply for Lyme Disease or
Mycoplamsa Fermentens. Our Department of Defense knows that these pathogens
are spreading through the population. Instead of taking preventative actions
our government is actually blocking proper research, education, testing,
diagnosis and treatment.
- We need to make these institutions accountable for their
crimes against humanity.
- COMMENT on Lyme DIsease article--Plum Island Connection
- From Bob Anderson
- Hello, Jeff
- This IS interesting, and I have known for some years
that "Lyme Disease" is a man-made illness.
- My ex-colleague John Quinn -- who as you may recall wrote
a book on the so-called Montauk Project activities at Montauk Air Base
on the east end of Long Island New York -- wrote that he was informed UNEQUIVOCALLY
by project operative and subsequent whistleblower Preston Nichols that
Lyme Disease was DEFINITELY developed by the US government at Plum Island
Animal Disease research facility, directly offshore from Montauk in Long
Island Sound. Nichols told Quinn that the disease was first engineered
in the mid-1960s and was initially released at the Montauk base itself
and the surrounding communities. Nichols averred that there was frequent
collaboration between the two facilities.
- It is a FACT that the earliest victims of the disease
were not in Old Lyme Connecticut but at Montauk. The disease rapidly became
fairly widespread by the late 60s among the many farmers and fishermen
in the area and was known at the time as "Montauk Knee" -- as
it primarily affected major joints such as the knee.
- Even more disturbing: Nichols informed Quinn around 1999
that the Lyme Disease spirochete was a PRIME COMPONENT of the materials
being spewed from the aircraft spraying CHEMTRAILS across the length and
breadth of the PLANET EARTH!
- Comforting, No?
