- On March, 14, 2008, many Americans were infuriated by
the airing of highly inflammatory video clips from various sermons by the
Reverend Jeremiah Wright. TV viewers heard the preacher saying that the
U.S. government created AIDS as a genocide program against blacks - and
watched him declaring "God damn America!"
- As a spiritual advisor to Barack Obama, Wright's inflammatory
rhetoric threatened to derail Obama's race for the Democratic presidential
nomination. Wright, retiring at age 65, had served as pastor of the Trinity
United Church in Chicago's Southside, where Obama had been a parishioner
for 20 years. Obama quickly distanced himself from Wright's remarks, but
refused to denounce him.
- Is Reverend Wright a patriotic American?
- As usual, the media quickly denounced his AIDS accusations
as "conspiracy theory." This despite the fact that half of African-Americans
polled believe AIDS could have been man-made. Although the media came down
hard on Wright, he cannot be simply dismissed as a deluded and unpatriotic
American. At age 20 in 1961, he interrupted his college studies to serve
in the Marines. According to the Chicago Tribune (April 3, 2008), after
completing two years of service in the Marines in 1963, he volunteered
again to become a Navy corpsman. He did so well in corpsman school that
he was the valedictorian and became a cardiopulmonary technician. Assigned
to the Navy's premier medical facility at Bethesda Naval Hospital, he was
a member of the commander in chief's medical team, and helped care for
President Lyndon B. Johnson after his 1966 surgery. For his service on
the team, which he left in 1967, the White House awarded him three letters
of commendation. After leaving the service, Wright finished his final year
of college, entered the seminary, was ordained as a minister, and eventually
became pastor of Trinity, where he served for 36 years.
- The Tribune concluded: Rev. Jeremiah Wright, the retiring
pastor of Trinity, has been in the news for comments he has made over the
last three decades. Since these comments became public we have heard criticisms,
condemnations, denouncements and rejections of his comments and him. We've
seen on television, in a seemingly endless loop, sound bites of a select
few of Rev. Wright's many sermons. Some of his comments are inexcusable
and inappropriate and should be condemned, but in calling him "unpatriotic,"
let us not forget that this is a man who gave up six of the most productive
years of his life to serve his country. While words do count, so do actions.
Let us not forget that, for whatever Rev. Wright may have said over the
last 30 years, he has demonstrated his patriotism.
- The hepatitis B vaccine origin of AIDS
- For more than two decades, I have written extensively
about AIDS as a man-made disease and as a covert genocide program. In that
respect I totally agree with Rev. Wright, and I will attempt to present
here some very sketchy history of how HIV/AIDS originated in America, starting
in 1978, when government scientists began to experiment on young, primarily
white, healthy gay and bisexual men in Manhattan, as part of the experimental
hepatitis B vaccine trials, which continued in various cities up to the
year 1981 when the AIDS epidemic became "official". (For the
full details of man-made AIDS, please refer to my books AIDS & The
Doctors of Death, and Queer Blood, and to my many articles on the subject,
which can be easily found on Google (type-in: "alan cantwell"
- The groundwork for the experiment began in 1973 when
The Gay Men's Health Project in Manhattan provided blood samples for hepatitis
B testing at The New York City Blood Center. The results were astonishing!
One out of every two gay blood samples were positive. By contrast, only
5% of the blood samples from straights were positive.
- Developed at the Merck Institute for Therapeutic Research
at West Point, Pennsylvania, the first crude experimental vaccine was tested
in chimpanzees, the only animal susceptible to the human hepatitis B virus.
Later, the vaccine was tried on a small group of retarded children.
- When the experimental vaccine was ready to be more widely
tested in humans, several "high risk" groups were considered.
These included male homosexuals, drug addicts, mentally deficient adults,
Chinese-Americans, indigenous Alaskans, and patients and medical staff
of kidney dialysis centers. After much debate, it was decided that young
promiscuous gay men would be the best group to test the efficiency of the
- Wolf Szmuness and the New York Blood Center
- Wolf Szmuness, a Polish physician trained in the Soviet
Union, was placed in charge of the hepatitis B vaccine trial at the NY
Blood Center. Szmuness, a Jew born in Poland in 1919, was a young medical
student in eastern Poland when the Nazis invaded the country in the summer
of 1939. When Poland was partitioned by Germany and Russia, Szmuness was
sent to Siberia as a political prisoner. His entire family in western Poland
was murdered by the Nazis in the Holocaust. His years in exile in Siberia
were "a long dark period that he was most reluctant to talk about."
- June Goodfield in Quest for the Killers, provides the
definitive account of the gay hepatitis experiment. During confinement
in Siberia Szmuness was repeatedly interrogated and beaten by the Russian
KGB for refusing to cooperate in spy activities. After release from detention
in 1946 he was allowed to finish his medical education in Tomsk in central
Russia. While a student, he married a Russian woman. He specialized in
epidemiology, and when his wife contracted a nearly fatal case of hepatitis,
he decided to dedicate his life to the study of this liver disease.
- In 1959 the Soviets allowed Szmuness, and his wife and
daughter, to return to Poland where he worked as an epidemiologist in the
health department. There are conflicting reports of how Szmuness came to
America. According to Aaron Kellner, the founder of the NY Blood Center,
the Communists allowed Szmuness and his family to attend a scientific meeting
in Italy in 1969. While there, they defected to the West. Allan Chase,
author of Magic Shots, claims Szmuness was driven out of Poland in a 1968
Communist purge of the few remaining Jewish survivors of the Holocaust.
Goodfield writes that Polish anti-Semitism cost Szmuness his job, resulting
in his applying for a visa which eventually enabled him to get out of Poland
legally. From Rome the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society arranged for the family
to come to the U.S.
- Szmuness arrived in Manhattan with $15 in his pocket.
Through the intervention of Walsh McDermott, Professor of Public Health
at New York Hospital, Szmuness was fortunate enough to secure a position
as a lab technician at the New York City Blood Center. Within a few years
he was given his own lab, and a separate department of epidemiology at
the Center was created for him. In record time he was appointed Professor
at the Columbia School of Public Health.
- By the mid-1970s he was a world authority on hepatitis.
In another startling occurrence, Szmuness was invited back to Moscow in
1975 to give a scientific presentation. As a defector he was terrified
to set foot in the Soviet Union, and memories of KGB torture and interrogation
still plagued him. However, his colleagues assured him he would have the
full protection of the U.S. State Department. His return to Russia was
a scientific triumph. By the late 1970s he had been awarded millions of
dollars in grant money and was fully prepared to undertake the most important
mission of his life: the hepatitis B vaccine experiment.
- First, Szmuness became acquainted with the gay community,
and added homosexual physicians and activists to his staff. He was taken
into the gay ghetto where he viewed the baths, bars and discos. Promiscuous
homosexuals were perfect guinea pigs. They would prove, beyond doubt, that
Szmuness could wipe hepatitis B off the face of the earth.
- Tarketing gay men for the vaccine experiment
- In the late 1970s a bloodmobile began canvassing the
gay neighborhood in the Greenwich Village section of Manhattan, looking
for homosexual volunteers. Over ten thousand men signed up and donated
blood samples for Szmuness' upcoming experiment. (These stored donated
blood specimens would eventually provide data regarding the spread of HIV/AIDS
into the gay community.)
- Szmuness was highly selective in the men he chose as
finalists. He required that the men be highly promiscuous. In fact, the
more promiscuous the better. He was testing a vaccine against a sexually-transmitted
virus. Therefore, he didn't want any monogamous men, or men with lovers,
in his experiment. He also wanted men who were healthy, young, responsible,
intelligent, and preferably white. Promiscuous bisexuals were acceptable,
but heterosexual men were excluded from the experiment. The men had to
have an address and a phone number, and be willing to provide blood samples
over a long period of time.
- The hepatitis experiment was costly, and Szmuness didn't
want any uncooperative or hard-to-find gays messing up his experiment.
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the National Institutes of Health
(NIH), and the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, were
all involved in the study, as well as big pharmaceutical companies, such
as Merck, Sharp & Dohme Inc., and Abbott Laboratories.
- In preliminary experiments, Szmuness first tested his
vaccine in chimpanzees. He then tested two hundred human volunteers, presumably
gay men, by inoculating them with the vaccine. In the months before the
official beginning of the experiment there had been no problem with the
chimps or the volunteers. Szmuness was now ready to set the date for the
final experiment- an experiment which would decimate the gay community
in New York City, and then spread throughout the country.
- The vaccine experiments and the beginning of AIDS
- The first group of gays were inoculated in November 1978
at the New York City Blood Center. The experiment continued until October
1979. Over one thousand men from Manhattan were injected with Szmuness'
- In January 1979, a few months after Wolf Szmuness began
his experiment, purple skin lesions began to appear on the bodies of young
white gay men in the Village area of Manhattan. The doctors were not sure
exactly what was wrong with these men. During the next thirty months, Manhattan
physicians encountered dozens of cases of a new disease characterized by
immunodeficiency, Kaposi's sarcoma, and a rapidly fatal lung disease, known
as Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia. All the men were young and gay and promiscuous.
Almost all were white. All died horribly. Within a few years, AIDS would
become the leading cause of death of young men and young women living in
New York City; and The Big Apple would be the epicenter of the new plague
with the highest number of AIDS cases in the country.
- In March 1980 the CDC supervised additional gay experiments
in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Denver, St. Louis and Chicago. In the fall
of 1980 the first West Coast case of AIDS appeared in a young man from
San Francisco. Six months later, in June 1981, the AIDS epidemic became
"official." No one could understand why large numbers of young,
white, previously healthy homosexual men were dying mysteriously in Manhattan,
San Francisco, and Los Angeles.
- By the beginning of the 1980s, Szmuness was awarded millions
of dollars for his research, and his hugely successful hepatitis vaccine
was hailed as having tremendous global implications. He collaborated with
the most powerful medical institutions in the nation: the NIH, the National
Cancer Institute (NCI), the FDA, the WHO, and the Cornell, Yale and Harvard
Schools of Public Health and the Russian Academy of Medical Science. Other
global connections included the International Agency for Research on Cancer
in Lyons, France, and close associations with third world African countries.
Even the services of the Sengalese Army were employed to secure blood specimens
in one of Szmuness' many African experiments.
- In June 1982 Wolf Szmuness died of lung cancer. In a
posthumous account of Szmuness, the founding president of the New York
Blood Center, Aaron Kellner, wrote: "He was the quintessential doctor's
doctor. Most physicians in their professional careers influence the lives
of a few hundred or a few thousand people. Some fortunate ones can influence
the lives of a few million. It is the rare physician who, like Wolf Szmuness,
is given the grace to touch the lives of billions of people--those living
on this planet and generations yet unborn."
- A 1983 report, published after Szmuness' death, detailed
a new experimental hepatitis B vaccine program in Kangwane, using Black
South African infants as subjects.
- Monkey virus business in Africa and its connection to
the Blood Center
- From the very beginning of AIDS, government scientists
claimed HIV virus originated as a primate virus, either from chimpanzees
or monkeys, in the African jungle. From these primates it is believed the
HIV virus was "introduced" into the African black population.
Years later, I learned of a connection between the hepatitis B vaccine
experiment at the New York Blood Center and its connection to an African
primate laboratory that has never been revealed to the public, to my knowledge.
- In 1974, Albert Prince, head of the virus lab at the
NY Blood Center, established a chimp virus laboratory in West Africa and
became its director. Chimps were captured from various parts of West Africa
and brought to VILAB. The lab prides itself by releasing "rehabilitated"
chimps back into the wild. One of the purposes of VILAB II, located at
the Liberian Institute for Biomedical Research in Robertsfield, Liberia,
was to develop the hepatitis B vaccine in chimps. A few years later the
experimental hepatitis B vaccine was inoculated into gays at the Blood
- Also closely allied with the "pre-AIDS" development
of a hepatitis B vaccine is the little publicized primate colony outside
New York City called LEMSIP (the Laboratory for Experimental Medicine and
Surgery). Until disbanded in 1997, LEMSIP supplied New York area scientists
with primates and primate parts for transplantation and virus research.Founded
in 1965, LEMSIP was affiliated with the New York University Medical Center,
where the first cases of AIDS-associated Kaposi's sarcoma were discovered
in 1979. Researchers at NYU Medical Center were also heavily involved in
the development of the experimental hepatitis B vaccine used in gays; and
the Medical Center received government grants and contracts connected with
biological warfare research beginning in 1969, according to Leonard Horowitz,
author of Emerging Viruses: AIDS and Ebola.
- The AIDS aftermath of the gay vaccine experiment
- Most people are unaware of the gay experiments that immediately
preceded the mass deaths in the gay community. But the details of the vaccine
trials, and their effects on the health of homosexual men, are recorded
for posterity in the annals of medical science.
- After Szmuness' death he was remembered and honored by
a small coterie of distinguished scientists- the national and international
medical power brokers who run medical science, and who represent the media
darlings. On May 11, 1984, a landmark meeting took place in the nation's
capitol to honor Wolf Szmuness. One of the most distinguished attendees
was Dr. Robert Gallo, who had announced the discovery of the AIDS virus
three weeks earlier. Those who paid tribute to Szmuness also included the
top government scientists in AIDS and cancer, the two discoverers of the
AIDS virus, the most well-known researchers in animal experimentation,
the heads of the most prestigious biomedical establishments in the nation,
and the chief executives of drug companies tied to genetic engineering,
vaccine production, and biological warfare research.
- There was indeed a strange and ominous connection between
cancer and AIDS, between animal experimentation and genetic engineering
of viruses, between biological warfare technology and drug companies, between
gay experiments and AIDS, between vaccine programs and the contamination
of the nation's blood supply. Why else would all these people from diverse
areas of science be attending this high level government conference?
- Despite the denial of the medical authorities, there
was a connection between Szmuness' gay experiment and the outbreak of AIDS
in American cities. It wasn't my imagination. And it wasn't a coincidence.
The more I studied the hepatitis B experiment, the more the connections
to biological warfare and genocide became apparent.
- African-Americans and man-made AIDS
- Rarely, a black celebrity, such as comedian Bill Cosby
or disco diva Grace Jones, or popular actor Will Smith would astonish people
by declaring AIDS was a man-made disease. But in media interviews, the
subject was quickly changed. In Rolling Stone black filmmaker Spike Lee
predicted a lot of people would have to do a lot of explaining about AIDS
one day. How could a mysterious and incurable disease appear out of nowhere
and specifically target gays and minorities? Lee thinks the mystery disease
is "about as mysterious as genocide." He is convinced "AIDS
is a government-engineered disease. They never realized it couldn't be
contained to the groups it was intended to wipe out." Is Lee paranoid?
He declares: "You might think I'm crazy about this one. I don't think
- This human protective psychological device called "denial"
is the strongest argument against AIDS as a man-made disease For many people,
the idea is too painful to bear and quickly dismissed. In my experience,
physicians comprise the group most unreceptive to the concept. A common
response of AIDS researchers to the issue is that they are so busy trying
to find a cure for AIDS that they have no time to investigate such foolishness.
Even gay AIDS activists use this ploy.
- Why do AIDS activists avoid the subject of AIDS biowarfare?
Undoubtedly, they fear a confrontation on this issue. Activists are constantly
badgering the government for more funding. Accusing officials of deliberate
gay genocide might cause the government to stop listening to gay demands.
- According to the latest statistics posted on the Internet,
about 20 million people worldwide have died of AIDS and 40 million more
are infected with HIV, most in Sub-Saharan Africa. About 600,000 Americans
- The disproportionately high rate of AIDS in the Black
community raises the specter of black genocide. A New York Times editorial
("The 'AIDS Plot' Against Blacks," May 12, 1992) emphasized that
"bizarre as it may seem to most people, many Black Americans believe
that AIDS and the health measures used against it are part of a conspiracy
to wipe out the Black race.
- The scientific evidence for man-made AIDS
- After studying the scientific evidence for man-made AIDS
for so long, it is difficult for me to imagine anyone who knows the "facts"
surrounding the origin of HIV/AIDS who cannot see a possible connection
between the gay experiments and the outbreak of the "gay plague."
- Although the evidence is circumstantial, it doesn't take
a rocket scientist to figure out that HIV (along with the new Kaposi's
sarcoma virus) was seeded into gay men via contaminated vaccines as part
of the hepatitis experiment. But during my initial study of the hepatitis
trials, I had overlooked the most obvious piece of evidence linking AIDS
to Szmuness' experiment. The strongest piece of evidence was in the tremendous
success of the vaccine trials!
- According to June Goodfield: "In those (gay men)
who received all three injections, 96% developed antibodies against the
(hepatitis) virus. Overall, the vaccine was shown to be 92.3 percent effective
in protecting high risk individuals against hepatitis B; these findings
are of an order of magnitude that has never been equaled in any other vaccine
trial, either before or since."
- The experiment could never have been so phenomenally
successful if the gay men were infected with HIV before the experiment!
- The reason for this is now obvious. More recent studies
have shown that hepatitis B vaccination is not very successful in immunodepressed
people. In HIV-positive individuals, the success rate of the hepatitis
B vaccine is about 50%, only protecting one out of two people infected
with the AIDS virus.
- The gay men in Szmuness' study were healthy before the
experiment- and damaged afterward. The experiment would have been a failure
(never 96% effective) if the immune systems of the men hadn't been working
at full capacity. The cohort was infected with HIV at the time of the experiment-
- By permanently changing the genetic structure (via HIV)
of homosexual men, the gay experiment devastated the homosexual community
in America. Health officials now predict the odds of a teenage male homosexual
reaching the age of 60 without becoming HIV-positive is 50-50.
- Is AIDS a covert genocide program against homosexual
men? Is AIDS genocide against Black Africans? For those aware of evidence
presented, the answer is yes.
- The AIDS aftermath of the gay experiment
- A 1986 report in JAMA showed 20% of the men in the experiment
were already infected with HIV by the end of 1981; and by 1984, more than
40% of the men were HIV-positive and doomed to death.
- Another follow-up study of 8,906 gay men who donated
blood for the hepatitis experiments in Manhattan was released in 1992.
Statistical analysis of this group showed that mortality rates for men
aged 25-44 began to rise in the 1980s, with AIDS the leading cause of death
among young men in New York City. Remarkably, "The all-cause mortality
in this cohort in 1988 was 24 times higher that the mortality rate in the
cohort before the beginning of the AIDS epidemic."
- A final paper appearing on the "natural
history of HIV infection" and titled "Long-Term Survival after
Infection with Human Immunodeficiency Virus Type 1 (HIV-1) among Homosexual
Men in Hepatitis B Vaccine Trial Cohorts in Amsterdam, New York City, and
San Francisco, 1978-1995", appeared in the American Journal of Epidemiology
in 1999. (The full report is available online at: http://aje.oxfordjournals.org/cgi/reprint/150/10/1026).
The fate of 120 gay men in the Manhattan hepatitis B experiment was determined
by the investigators. It is clear from "Table One" that fifty
eight of these young men had died, and 93% of then died of AIDS.
- Primate viruses out of Africa - or out of a laboratory?
- Why is AIDS a heterosexual disease in Africa, and a "gay"
disease in the United States? Do African Blacks make love differently than
white heterosexuals? How did Black African men acquire HIV? Were they all
sodomized? What kind of sexually transmitted agent spreads heterosexually
in Africa and homosexually in America? And rarely, if ever, is transmitted
between non-drug-using lesbians?
- There are millions of white people in Sub-Saharan Africa.
If HIV had been present for decades (as scientists insist), why is AIDS
primarily a black man's disease-and not also a white man's disease in Africa?
In the U.S., why was AIDS first discovered in white gays, but not in black
- There is no evidence that AIDS in America came from Africa
or anywhere else outside of the USA. There is no possible way a black heterosexual
sexually-transmitted epidemic in Africa could have transformed itself initially
into a white gay man's disease in America. That, in itself, is the "smoking
- Why weren't the first cases seen in Asian-Americans or
Native Americans? Why no cases in women? Why no cases in infants, in the
elderly, and in immunodeficient people with chronic diseases--the groups
most likely to acquire a contagious virus, and the groups most likely to
die quickly from HIV?
- Why was there no "incubation period" for HIV
in the U.S.? As soon as the gay experiment started, it was quickly followed
by "gay-related immune deficiency disease"-later to be known
as "acquired" immune disease.
- Gay, Black and Universal Genocide
- The introduction of HIV via the hepatitis B trials was
a deliberate attempt to liquidate the gay community - and then blame homosexual
men for spreading the disease to the "general population" because
of their perverted and "high risk" lifestyle. Why did a new "gay
disease" erupt as soon as homosexuals, the most hated people in America,
presented themselves as guinea pigs to medical scientists? Another coincidence
of nature caused by monkeys in the African jungle? Why are new retroviral
diseases, never before seen in modern medicine. appearing so soon after
retroviruses were "discovered"? (Google: The Special Cancer Virus
Program of the 1970s, the birthplace of HIV and AIDS) Why did the AIDS
"supervirus" appear a decade after it was predicted by the biowarfare
experts? (Google the Congressional testimony of biological warfare researcher
"Dr. Donald MacArthur " in 1969.) Another coincidence?
- The public has been carefully taught that Blacks and
Gays and African Green Monkeys are responsible for causing AIDS. These
politically correct and scientifically correct "facts" are accepted
by most people without question.
- How many more AIDS deaths are required before people
speak out against this secret genocide- and the obvious connection of vaccine
experiments and the "introduction" of lethal viruses into "select
