I thought the “Tick Borne Disease Working Group” was a bad idea. After all, it was Pat Smith’s (LDA) idea 20 years ago, and what has the LDA accomplished other than finally getting this committee formed? They gathered a bunch of anecdotes and called it “Big Data,” and Pat got herself a sweet three-year appointment to the “Programmatic Panel for the Tick-Borne Disease Research Program (TBDRP), a new program in the Department of Defense’s (DoD) Office of Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs (CDMRP)…” where she gets to weigh in on grant awards.
Well, maybe this working group isn’t such a bad idea, starting with Pat, herself. See, she knows that this chronic disease that plagues so many of us is caused by OspA, alone. Otherwise she wouldn’t have gone to the trouble of calling a big meeting with the FDA to say so, a full year after the whistle had already been blown on LYMErix (OspA) and Dearborn.
I don’t understand why she has never spoken of OspA since then, though. Maybe she has been waiting for just the right opportunity, AKA her precious TBD Working Group. Go Pat! OspA speaks! And it hangs out with DoD!
It appears that “Da Worm” Gary Wormser didn’t even make it to the first meeting before being voted off the island. It’s almost a little sad, since now we won’t be able to repeatedly ask him, on the federal record, whether he recalls publishing several times that this plague we call “chronic Lyme” is a disease of immunosuppression. Oh well. The remaining Working Group members are free to discuss such matters now, without wasting time on his back-pedaling.
So, we’ve established that the disease is caused by OspA (pam3cys, a fungal lipoprotein) and that it’s actually an immunosuppression disease. And that’s after examining just two (now one) of the Working Group members! Yay team! Will you look at that? All the work is already done!
Surely some of the biodefense experts in the group know what I’m talking about. Like Dennis M. Dixon, Ph.D., Chief, Bacteriology and Mycology Branch, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, National Institutes of Health, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. That’s the guy we want on our team! The one who’s a mycology expert! A mycology expert definitely knows that fungal endotoxins like OspA/pam3cys are about as far from a vaccine (LYMErix) as you can get because they are responsible for this tick bite post-sepsis AIDS outcome that mysteriously doesn’t produce antibodies and slowly disables its victims through the reactivated viruses and opportunistic infections.
It’s funny; if I didn’t trust the government I might think that Dr. Dixon and the other bioweapons dabblers in the group were appointed for nefarious reasons. But just look at Dr. Estella Jones’s credentials: “Captain Jones serves as Director for Medical Countermeasure Regulatory Science and as Senior Regulatory Veterinarian in the Office of Counterterrorism and Emerging Threats in the Office of the Commissioner at the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). She currently serves as Chairperson for the NIAID Integrated Research Facility Animal Care and Use Committee at Fort Detrick and represents the FDA on the National Interagency Confederation for Biological Research (NICBR) Fort Detrick Interagency Coordinating Committee (FDICC).” If “Lyme” is a stealth disabler (ask any of the victims) then Dr. Jones knows for sure what’s going on here! This is getting pretty exciting!
Then there’s Charles Benjamin (Ben) Beard, Ph.D., Acting Deputy Director, Division of Vector-Borne Diseases, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services; Associate Editor, Emerging Infectious Diseases. What has this man NOT accomplished in his long and illustrious career? I mean, he was at Yale at the time they were working on patenting stuff like LYMErix and the valid-but-shelved-for-all-eternity flagellin test method that might have spared about a gazillion years of human suffering.
From Yale, he became a lifer at the CDC, first at the Division of Parasitic Diseases, and later at the CDC’s Division of Vector-Borne Diseases. He coordinated CDC’s programs on Lyme borreliosis, tick-borne relapsing fever, Bartonella, plague, and tularemia and wielded influence not only domestically, but globally! In addition to his work as Chief of the Bacterial Diseases Branch, in 2011 Dr. Beard was appointed as the Associate Director for Climate Change in CDC’s National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases, a network of biodefense labs, where he coordinated CDC’s efforts to mitigate the potential impact of climate variability and disruption on infectious diseases in humans. Vector migration, anyone? “In 2017, he was appointed as the Acting Deputy Director of CDC’s Division of Vector-Borne Diseases. He has published over 125 scientific papers, books, and book chapters collectively, and has served on a variety of committees and panels both inside and outside of CDC, including working groups or advisory panels for the World Health Organization” and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
Wow. Is this Dixon/Jones/Beard trifecta the Lyme dream team, or what? These three definitely know that OspA causes tick bite post-sepsis AIDS. DEFINITELY. How can we go wrong with this crew?
Add to that caucus the brilliant Dr. John Aucott, and this Working Group is sure to make great strides. Aucott hails from Johns Hopkins University, home of spirochetal crimes against humanity, a la Tuskegee and Guatemala. Therefore, he surely knows that spirochetal neurologic disease (“Great Imitator” and “New Great Imitator”) isn’t just your run-of-the-mill somatoform disorder, despite what so many of his patients say. It could be a really, really good thing that the Famous Lyme Doctor from the Famous Spirochetal Crimes Institution is Chair of the Working Group!
I’m going to “think positive” and hope that between Pat Smith, Aucott and our Tick-AIDS Trifecta, we have enough great minds to educate the ones who aren’t quite with the program, so to speak. Help out Dr. Horowitz, who keeps publishing entire books that avoid addressing the mechanism of disease and yet earn him celebrity status. Help out Dr. Nigrovic of child-stealing Boston Children’s, who publishes things like “Doctors need to strong-arm parents into accepting lesser treatment for their sick kids”: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/28984721/; “The fraudulent two-tier testing is awesome”: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/28329259/; and “Be careful not to over diagnose Lyme because that might validate people’s suffering”: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/27157898/
Yes, this Tick-AIDS expert contingent could educate the likes of Kristen Honey, Ph.D., P.M.P. (Vice-Chair), who is a policy maven and “transforms scientific methods through open data, open science, open source, and open innovation (e.g., crowdsourcing, citizen science, prizes, challenges, and public-private collaborations).” I have no idea what that means, since there is but one “scientific method,” and it’s very stringent and not able to be transformed while maintaining validity. Anyway, here’s your “crowd sourcing”: www.truthcures.org/charge-sheets
Crowds of scientists were sourced to explain this disease of tick bite post-sepsis AIDS, and we crowds of victims would appreciate it very much if you’d get on with the task of putting some policy in place to address this scourge, instead of the current policy of pretending that it doesn’t exist.
Also, would some of the old timers on this Working Group please advise Wendy Adams, M.B.A., Research Grant Director, Bay Area Lyme (BAL) about her organization’s unsavory affiliation with Alan Barbour, TBD Patent King & Supreme Owner of All Things OspA? The optics of having one of the 1994 Dearborn conference ringleaders on BAL’s scientific advisory panel are not great; besides, he knows what tick bite post-sepsis AIDS is all about–probably better than anyone–so clearly he is behaving dishonestly by withholding this knowledge. I hate to see a perfectly good non-nonprofit taken for a ride.
In closing, I’ll just reiterate that I’m impressed with the depth of knowledge in this group about spirochetal/fungal/stealth disabling/bioweapons-ish diseases. That’s great, because a bunch of the Working Group members can cut right to the chase and deal with the scientific facts of OspA/pam3cys AIDS, and finally start to help the 85% who were excluded from the CDC’s Dearborn case definition. While you’re at it, why don’t you form a subcommittee to put the kibosh on the new fake Lyme vaccine? I’ve been fighting the damned thing by myself and could use some help explaining that it’s a bad idea to inject OspA into people intentionally, when injection by tick is such an obviously horrific outcome. https://badlymeattitude.com/2017/11/19/fighting-lymerix-2-0/
