Ezili Danto’s questions on live virus in vaccines? and the current campaign in Haiti by WHO to vaccinate 5.7 million Haitians….. Trust is not scientific. We must ask questions and have trusted doctors test these vaccines before they are administered. Here’s two examples of doctors talking about vaccines using live viruses. Apparently, these may only be used in “developing countries” not US….

What sort of vaccines are going to used in Haiti by WHO. Live vaccines? There seems to be a difference.


Officials say vaccine caused Nigeria polio 05 Oct 2007 A polio outbreak in Nigeria was caused by the vaccine designed to stop [spread] it, international health officials say, leaving at least 69 children paralyzed. The outbreak was caused by the live polio virus that is used in vaccines given orally — the preferred method in developing countries; in the West, the polio vaccine is given as a shot and uses an inactivated virus. The CDC and the World Health Organization announced the cause of the polio outbreak last week, even though they knew about it last year. Outbreaks caused by the oral vaccine’s live virus have happened before. The continuing Nigerian outbreak follows a nearly yearlong boycott of the vaccine in Africa’s most populous country because of ‘unfounded’ fears the vaccine was a Western plot to sterilize Muslims.  [Looks like the fears are ‘founded’ to me.]

This paragraph in Jaf’s new piece reminded me of our questions on WHO and the current vaccination campaign being promulgated in foreign-occupied Haiti:
“….despite all evidence which confirms:
….4) that a World Health Organization (WHO) official declared, “Now I believe the smallpox vaccine theory is the explanation for the explosion of African AIDS” while Dr. Robert Gallo, dubbed the discoverer of HIV, told The Times that “The link between the WHO program and the epidemic is an interesting and important hypothesis. I cannot say that it actually happened but, I have been saying for some years that the use of live vaccines such as that used for smallpox can activate a dormant infection such as HIV (The AIDS virus) “

WHO Gave AIDS to The World ? (updated text with references)

WHO Says Africans/ Haitians Gave AIDS to the World?
History Answers: Follow the Accuser’s Thumb !

For forty years between 1932 and 1972, the U.S. Public Health Service (PHS) conducted an experiment on 399 black men in the late stages of syphilis. These men, for the most part illiterate sharecroppers from one of the poorest counties in Alabama, were never told what disease they were suffering from or of its seriousness. Informed that they were being treated for “bad blood,” their doctors had no intention of curing them of syphilis at all. The data for the experiment was to be collected from autopsies of the men, and they were thus deliberately left to degenerate under the ravages of tertiary syphilis—which can include tumors, heart disease, paralysis, blindness, insanity, and death. “As I see it,” one of the doctors involved explained, “we have no further interest in these patients until they die.”

“The United States government did something that was wrong—deeply, profoundly, morally wrong. It was an outrage to our commitment to integrity and equality for all our citizens. . . . clearly racist”.

—President Clinton’s apology for the Tuskegee Syphilis Experiment to the eight remaining survivors, May 16, 1997

Doc, from Whence came this “Bad Blood” ?
The recent study by Michael Worobey et. al[1].theorizing that AIDS left Africa for Haiti in the mid 1960s and then stormed into the U.S. could eventually turn out to be a positive event both for the advancement of science and for unveiling just how pervasively white supremacist ideologies still taint the modern scientific community. This latest study is forcing us to lift some muddy rocks underneath which lurks creepy creatures to whom social as well as natural scientists need pay closer attention.

The media fanfare which accompanied Worobey’s “Super -Contaminated Haitian Immigrant who single-handedly carried AIDS from his ancestral Africa back to America and then the world” hypothesis is rather strange considering how a major AIDS – related news concerning the tragic failure of Merk’s Experimental AIDS Vaccine[2] went almost unnoticed, just a month earlier. Is this indicative of what really makes Fortress America tick?

Bad Genes ?
The timing of Worobey’s study is also an important element to take into consideration. It has hit the news the same month that James Watson, the aged Nobel laureate geneticist, suggested that: “Africans are genetically inferior to Europeans”. Although many in the scientific community promptly condemned Watson, there is little evidence that the white supremacist ideas he expressed are a rarity in this milieu. In fact, his statements reported in a November 2000 article of the San Francisco Chronicle[3], suggest that Watson’s racism is anything but sudden.

Is Watson in want for company in 2007? Hardly so!

To convince themselves of the genetic superiority of their “race”, we have seen many despicable efforts deployed recently by white scientists from disciplines like archeology and computer modeling. For instance, some have specialized in what I would term” virtual Michaeljacksonism” whereby the Black grandson of Black Queen Tiye[4], has been turned into a white-skinned boy lost in KMT, the land of OSIRIS -the Land of the Blacks. This fraudulent whitening of the famous African Pharaoh Tutankhamun has been brilliantly exposed on the website of Professor Manu Ampim[5] as well as that of Professor William Singer.

The scientific creed that seems to guide these folks appear to be rather simple. If it is a great civilization in Africa where builders of majestic and awe-inspiring pyramids have painted themselves in their own tombs[6], looking exactly as they do, in the likeness of their ancestors and exactly as they were described by the ancient Greeks, the computer modeling done by the modern Eurocentric “experts” must find a way to correct all presumed anomalies, until those responsible for these great feats of civilization become as white as can be.

Conversely, if the matter concerns a deadly pandemic that takes root in colonial Africa, where European colonizers had complete control over the African continent, traveling to and fro as often as they please; the modeling must eventually find an African origin for the “Bad blood”. This, despite all evidence which confirms:

1) that contaminated vaccines made from Chimpanzee tissue and tested on millions of people have indeed resulted in well-documented deaths[7] ;

2) that the scientists involved have been caught lying and trying to cover up[8] the facts;

3) that there was every opportunity for HIV to be one of the many contaminations of the vaccines forced upon colonized Africans;

4) that a World Health Organization (WHO) official declared, “Now I believe the smallpox vaccine theory is the explanation for the explosion of African AIDS” while Dr. Robert Gallo, dubbed the discoverer of HIV, told The Times that “The link between the WHO program and the epidemic is an interesting and important hypothesis. I cannot say that it actually happened but, I have been saying for some years that the use of live vaccines such as that used for smallpox can activate a dormant infection such as HIV (The AIDS virus) “

5)that all this evidence of a man-made origin of AIDS have been available to the scientific community all along (including video evidence which, you the reader, can now consult online in English[9] and in French[10]).

Nonetheless, Worobey’s hypothetical model finds this one descendant of deported Africans (Survivors of the MAAFA) who leaves his native Haiti sometimes in the 1960s to go to Africa (please note there has never been a direct flight linking Haiti with any country in Africa), then beats all the frequent flyers and frequent boaters of his time to return to Haiti (which he was fleeing for fear of political persecution), under the same U.S.-backed Duvalier dictatorship still in place upon his return. And, at last, our intrepid Haitian globetrotter extraordinaire invades America to bring the HIV virus he was boldly carrying where no HIV has ever gone before.

Indeed, for all its flaws, Worobey’s study offers an opportunity for everyone, Africans and Haitians in particular, to discover some very important information about the AIDS phenomenon and about the deeply entrenched racism that still permeates our post-colonial world – including the so-called “scientific community”. 

 The fact that Michael Worobey has often been called upon to try to quiet down or to discredit theories which posit that the AIDS pandemic stems from contaminated vaccination campaigns is not at all insignificant. Last year, Hooper warned about potential manipulation of data to create false but sensational scientific results[11].

The outrage caused by Worobey’s indexing of Haitians as culprits who brought AIDS to the U.S. has led more people to research and learn how AIDS was likely created in colonized Africa in the first place. i.e through Euro-American scientists’ unethical vaccine production and testing in colonial Congo. While Edward Hopper postulates that AIDS is not a purposely created disease, but one that came about accidentally, others, including Dr. Alan Cantwell, author of Blaming Gays, Blacks, and chimps for AIDS point towards evidence that it was a deliberate action, much like the 40 year (1932-1972) Tuskegee Syphilis Experiments which the U.S. Government denied for the longest time, but finally admitted in 1997.

European world leaders, including those hiding under the cover of science or humanism, have a tendency to gang up on South-African President Thabo Mbeki whenever he dares lend an ear to the scientists who insist that the man-made disease theory, among others, deserve to be taken seriously. Now, perhaps, more people will take the time to weigh the evidence before they pass judgment.

In one of his powerful speeches[12], African man of science and humanitarian Dr. Phillip Emeagwali wrote:

“Religion is based on faith, while science is based on fact and reason – and science is neutral to race. Unfortunately, scientists are not neutral to race.

Take, for example, the origin of AIDS, an international disease. According to scientific records, the first person to die from AIDS was a 25-year-old sailor named David Carr, of Manchester, England.

Carr died on August 31, 1959, and because the disease that killed him was then unknown, his tissue samples were saved for future analysis.

The “unknown disease” that killed David Carr was reported in The Lancet on October 29, 1960. On July 7,1990, The Lancet retested those old tissue samples taken from David Carr and reconfirmed that he had died of AIDS.”

Quickly, subsequent studies[13] came to discredit this conclusion of a European (British) origin for AIDS.

Obviously, unlike Britain, Haiti does not have the necessary army of scientists to conduct quick studies to escape the consequences of the stigma associated with such heavy accusations (CDC’s 4H in the 1980s and now Worobey’s work). So, Worobey’s latest storm will almost certainly cause more damage to Haiti than was ever suffered by Britain.

And, as we can see from the way the dominant media outlets treat information, it will be a while before truth and justice prevail in this debate. Thankfully, every now and again, an honest voice is raised loud enough to remind us not to allow our brains to fall asleep but to remain vigilant. Dr. Paul Farmer’s is one such voice. His book AIDS and Accusations: Haiti and the Geography of Blame[14] could not bear a more appropriate title.

Brian Martin in “The burden of proofand the origin of acquired immune deficiency syndrome”[15] wrote the following:

“There is a distinct difference in the way that different theories about the origin of acquired immune deficiency syndrome have been treated, with the widely supported cut-hunter theory given relatively little scrutiny, while the oral polio vaccine theory has been subject to intense criticism. This difference in treatment cannot be explained as application of the scientific method. A better explanation is that the burden of proof is put on all contenders to the cut-hunter theory, giving it an unfair advantage, especially given that this assignment of the burden of proof appears to reflect non-scientific factors”.

In Haitian culture we say that “Deceit gallops (ahead) for a hundred years, yet truth catches up to it in a single day”. Kidonk, galope Worobey, galope !
