SASH Whistleblowers Declare Washington “Occupy” a Success
Washington, D.C., June 12, 2015: Medical abuse-victims’ rights group Society for the Advancement of Scientific Hermeneutics (SASH) last week completed their planned grassroots protest and outreach efforts in Washington, D.C. The primary focus of SASH’s June 1-5 efforts was to expose the research fraud committed by CDC officers which led to the falsification of the Lyme disease case definition in Dearborn, Mich., in 1994.
The falsified case definition cleared the way for the perpetrators to profit personally from a monopoly on all tick-borne diseases, bogus OspA vaccines and test kits, at the expense of victims who have been unable to obtain proper diagnosis and treatment for the last 20 years.
SASH gave Senate and Congressional staff both the public record report of the 1994 Dearborn, FDA Lyme disease conference, and the secret, parallel research report that was withheld from the conference. This secret report is the essence of the case, since it shows how CDC officer Allen Steere falsified the Dearborn testing in Europe with high passage strains, recombinant OspA and B without the lipids attached, and raising the cut-off of the ELISA to exclude all neurologic cases.
SASH’s leaders say that this is a clear False Claims and Qui Tam case prosecutable by the Department of Justice, and that all pertinent and incriminating information was handed over to legislators from eight different states. In addition to meetings with legislative staff on Capitol Hill, the SASH team visited more than 20 foreign embassies to provide identical information and to relay the message that the U.S. CDC cannot be trusted with the welfare of U.S. citizens, let alone as the worldwide “authority” on human disease.
The group also protested in front of the U.S. Department of Justice with the message, “DOJ, do your job!” SASH’s Kathleen Dickson, known as the LYMErix vaccine whistleblower, provided the same information to the Department of Justice in 2003, on the advice of Justice Department staff in the office of Richard Blumenthal, who at the time was Connecticut’s Attorney General. Dickson says the DOJ’s 12-year neglect of her disclosure necessitated the widespread dissemination of SASH’s charge sheets and supporting research reports.
SASH is calling on USDOJ to finally prosecute these crimes. Lyme disease, or neuroborreliosis, has left millions of people to suffer in isolation with an AIDS-like illness, while being ridiculed by doctors, family members and employers as psychosomatic or lazy. The victims, often bankrupted by the high cost of out-of-pocket medical expenses, and unable to work due to illness, frequently commit suicide to escape their continuous denial of basic human rights. In 2013 the CDC admitted that actual cases of Lyme disease are under-reported by 10-12 times.
