WEDNESDAY NIGHT, AUGUST 12




12-1 Dave Emory, For the Record #1138 – Bio-Psy-Op Apocalypse Now, Part 10: Bad Medicine”

(July 16, 2020)



Continuing discussion about drug treatments for, and vaccines to prevent, Covid-19, this program sets forth information about the ongoing professional massaging of Gilead Sciences’ anti-viral remdesivir. Only modestly successful against SARS Cov‑2 (the virus that causes Covid-19), remdesivir has been propelled to the forefront of treatment regimens for the pandemic.

Of particular interest are the circumstances surrounding the CDC’s closure of the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases. The USAMRIID–located at Ft. Detrick–had hosted Gilead Sciences’ animal trials of remdesivir. Remdesivir was developed to combat Ebola, and was a failure in its initial professional iteration.



In March of 2019, rhesus macaques were infected with Ebola at the USAMRIID as part of a project to allow remdesivir to be marketed as an Ebola treatment without meeting the professional standards of human testing. ” . . . This agreement was made possible through a 2018 Natural History Study (NHS) of Ebola virus conducted by USAMRIID in close collaboration with Gilead Sciences, Inc., the sponsor of remdesivir development . . .”



Many of the safety violations cited by the CDC in its critique of USAMRIID safety and security procedures concerned “non-human primates” infected with one or more “select agents” that were not named. The term “select agent” refers to a pathogen being used in laboratory procedures. Whether the “select agent” was Ebola, and whether the safety lapses were in connection with the remdesivir/rhesus monkey trials was not disclosed.



” . . . . Several of the laboratory violations the CDC noted in 2019 concerned ‘non-human primates’ infected with a ‘select agent’, the identity of which is unknown — it was redacted in all received documents, because disclosing the identity and location of the agent would endanger public health or safety, the agency says. In addition to Ebola, the lab works with other deadly agents like anthrax and smallpox. . . ..”



If, for the sake of argument, SARS-CoV‑2 research was indeed taking placing there was a very real risk of it escaping.



Remdesivir failed in its human trials as a treatment for Ebola: ” . . . . The antiviral drug remdesivir, made by Gilead, underperformed ZMapp. . . . Remdesivir and ZMapp have been dropped from the trial. . . .”



Following that dismal performance against Ebola, Gilead Sciences recast remdesivir as a broad spectrum antiviral, a marketing approach that has led to the drug being authorized to treat Covid-19.

In that professional reincarnation, it demonstrated altogether modest success in Covid-19 trials that were professionally criticized and which were badly skewed from a methodological standpoint.



After a tightening of professional methodological standards at the USAMRIID, it was disclosed that most of the institution’s operatives are private contractors! From the standpoint of institutional security, the broad use of private contractors renders USAMRIID subject to penetration by any number of potential miscreants. ” . . . . ‘A majority of our laboratory workers are contractors–putting teeth in the contracts to ensure they’re following the shalls, wills and musts are things we’ve done in the interim,’ said [Brigadier General Mike] Talley. . . .”



As noted in past programs, Gilead Sciences is very well-connected professionally, with former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld (among other political luminaries) serving on its board of directors. Rumsfeld was chairman of the board from 1997 until he left in 2001 to become George W. Bush’s Secretary of Defense. The firm’s stock has been heavily invested in by hedge funds, including Robert Mercer’s Renaissance Technologies. Gilead Sciences’ stock has been a major driver of the stock market’s performance.



Several years into his tenure at the Pentagon, Rumsfeld made a killing on the sale of Gilead Sciences’ stock, which rose exponentially in value following its development of Tamiflu as a treatment for H5N1 avian flu. ” . . . .

WEDNESDAY NIGHT, AUGUST 5


12-1 Dave Emory, ‘‘For the Record #1137 - Lyme Disease and Biological Warfare, Part 3”

JUNE 30, 2020 

 

Further developing the links between biological warfare research and the Lyme Disease establishment, we review information from FTR #585.

 

At every turn, Lyme disease research is inextricably linked with biological warfare research. Divided into the “Steere” and “ILADS” camps, the Lyme disease research community is split between the view that the disease is “hard-to-catch, easy-to-cure” and the diametrically opposed view that the disease is very serious and produces long-term neurological disorder. The Steere camp diminishes the significance of the disease and is closely identified with biological warfare research. At the epicenter of Lyme disease research (and the Steere camp) are members of the Epidemic Intelligence Service, or EIS. EIS personnel are to be found at every bend in the road of Lyme disease research.

 

The Borrelia genus has long been researched as a biological warfare vector. Note that Unit 731 personnel and their files were put to work for the United States after World War II, much like the Project Paperclip scientists from Germany. ” . . . borrelia were known for their ability to adopt different forms under conditions of stress (such as exposure to antibiotics). Shedding their outer wall, (which is the target of penicillin and related drugs), they could ward off attack and continue to exist in the body.  . .”

 

Much of the program is devoted to excerpting and analysis of a 2013 posting by Elena Cook. This discussion of “Spirochete Warfare,” in turn, makes liberal use of material from a 1944 text about Japan’s biological warfare program. This book “Japan’s Secret Weapon,” contains a great deal of information about Japanese pioneering of the use of spirochetes as biological warfare organisms.

 

This material is to be considered in the historical and political context of the incorporation of the key personnel and files of the notorious Japanese Unit 731 biological warfare division into the U.S. BW program after World War II….

 

 

The program concludes with more experimental evidence of the production of amyloid deposits characteristic of Alzheimer’s Disease: ” . . . To determine whether an analogous host reaction to that occurring in AD could be induced by infectious agents, we exposed mammalian glial and neuronal cells in vitro to Borrelia burgdorferi spirochetes . . . Morphological changes analogous to the amyloid deposits of AD brain were observed following 2–8 weeks of exposure to the spirochetes. . . These observations indicate that, by exposure to bacteria or to their toxic products, host responses similar in nature to those observed in AD may be induced.

THURSDAY NIGHT, AUGUST 6

Commemorating the atomic bombing of Japan August 6 and 9, 1945, 75 years ago.


12-6 “The Last Train from Hiroshima”

by Charles Pellegrino

Read by Arthur Morey 

 

This gripping and amazing book will be partially read in part because August 6 and “August 9th are the 75th Anniversaries of the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, signaling the end of WW II.  The importance of this anniversary is particularly emphasized because in 2020, after 75 years of non use of the nuclear bomb,  the ‘red button’ is in the hands of a psychopath.

 

Several decades ago I heard a short news clip about 30 Japanese who survived the Hiroshima bomb and then took the train to Nagasaki in time to be bombed a second time, and survive.  When this book was published in 2010 it was the answer of a lot of questions I had harbored for decades, with gripping details far beyond my wonderment.  This book was a must for the program, so I contacted Tantor Media for permission and then Charles Pellegrino about - ummm – controversy!   

 

Mr. Pellegrino told me that he had been given false information by an American interviewee pertaining to details on the preparation of the bomb on the B-29, Enola Gay, on the island of Tinian.  Thus this adventure is left out of the replay on KPFK.  As I recall, I played the entire rest of the book (13 hours) a couple of times in previous August years.   But this year we’ll hear a portion of the book as much as time allows in one night.

 

In 1945, I celebrated the victory of the bomb and the end of the war which had been part of my whole life, and Peace was something new.  I became an ‘expert’ in the atomic bomb as much as my age allowed. In my childhood, one of the great questions about my future, in fact, was whether to be a soldier, sailor, or marine.   Pacifica Radio played no small part in altering my plans.

 

I think that this partial reading of “The Last Train from Hiroshima” will enforce or alter your feelings about atomic war.
