US apologizes for infecting Guatemalans with STDs in the 1940s

By CNN, 2010

The United States apologized Friday for a 1946-1948 research study in which people in Guatemala were intentionally infected with sexually transmitted diseases.

A statement by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Secretary of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius called the action “reprehensible.”

“We deeply regret that it happened, and we apologize to all the individuals who were affected by such abhorrent research practices,” the joint statement said. “The conduct exhibited during the study does not represent the values of the United States, or our commitment to human dignity and great respect for the people of Guatemala.” (more…)

Julius Rosenwald and Booker T Washington

Rosenwald and the Tuskegee Experiments

Begun in 1909 and published in 1928, the Oslo study reported on the natural history of untreated syphilis in a group of white males.  The racist assumptions then prevalent in American medicine biased physicians to assume that the disease would probably follow a different course in African-American males.  Hence white scientists saw value in replicating such a study among Black people in the U.S.

Macon County, east of Montgomery, was part of the “black belt” of Alabama so-called because of the rich dark soil.  It was home to the Tuskegee Institute, the foremost black college in the nation, run by Booker T. Washington. The county had few towns and was primarily populated by poor farmers, 90% of them African American.  In the 1930s it was severely depressed economically; and as in all of the South, public facilities were rigidly segregated.  The state spent $65 annually for each white student in the county schools, but only $7 for each black student.  The county had few doctors and only two hospitals, one of which, John Andrew Hospital, was on the grounds of the Tuskegee Institute and was primarily intended for Institute staff and students, even though it also served as the major source of medical care for much of the black community.

The Jonestown Dead
John Judge letter to Arianna Hufffington
Date: Sun, 26 May 2002
To: [arianna]
Subject: The Jonestown Dead
From: John Judge

Ms. Hufffington:

Since you once laughed your head off on your inaptly-titled show “Equal Time” on MSNBC as Gerald Posner maligned me for suggesting that the people who died at Jonestown did not commit suicide but were murdered, and your producers would not allow me “equal time” to respond to his castigations, I thought I’d drop a note just to clear up the record. The “kool-aid hit squad,” as you found it so hilarious to call them, did exist and they used something much more lethal. (more…)

Theft of Organs UPIsraeli Organ Harvesting
The New “Blood Libel”?
by ALISON WEIR, 2009

Last week Sweden’s largest daily newspaper published an article containing shocking material: testimony and circumstantial evidence indicating that Israelis may have been harvesting internal organs from Palestinian prisoners without consent for many years.

Worse yet, some of the information reported in the article suggests that in some instances Palestinians may have been captured with this macabre purpose in mind.

In the article, “Our sons plundered for their organs,” veteran journalist Donald Bostrom writes that Palestinians “harbor strong suspicions against Israel for seizing young men and having them serve as the country’s organ reserve – a very serious accusation, with (more…)

by Thomas C. Mountain (2011) 

Why is it that worldwide headlines greet Bill Gates announcement of his “vaccine” program while the biggest breakthrough in one of the major threats to life in much of the world remains unknown?

1984 MonkeysMachines of War: Blackwater, Monsanto, and Bill Gates
Silvia Ribeiro (2010)

A report by Jeremy Scahill in The Nation (Blackwater’s Black Ops, 9/15/2010) revealed that the largest mercenary army in the world, Blackwater (now called Xe Services) clandestine intelligence services was sold to the multinational Monsanto. Blackwater was renamed in 2009 after becoming famous in the world with numerous reports of abuses in Iraq, including massacres of civilians. It remains the largest private contractor of the U.S. Department of State “security services,” that practices state terrorism by giving the government the opportunity to deny it.

Drug War - UK PoliticsTHE MELTDOWN OF PUBLIC HEALTH AND PERSONAL FREEDOM
By Byron J. Richards (2006) [edited]

The United States government and especially the FDA have placed the vast resources of our federal government behind a twisted public healthcare agenda that perpetuates the profits of the elite and the unspoken primary agenda of eugenics. Public healthcare policy is a system designed to convince Americans to hand over their remaining freedoms, as a decayed government grapples to maintain control over its increasingly restless citizens.

In a free society, a majority of individuals can establish an emotional bond in the doctor-patient relationship that inspires hopefulness. There are many healthcare options a patient may choose to fortify personal health, options that are naturally embraced by physicians whom have the patient as their top priority. (more…)

DEPARTMENT OF GENETICS EUGENICS RECORD OFFICE
FOUNDED byMRS. E. H. HARRIMANCOLD
SPRING HARBOR. LONG ISLAND. N. Y.October 8, 1925
Miss Harriett E. Abbott,19 Brookes Avenue,Burlington, Vermont.

Dear Miss Abbott:

Massachusetts and Indiana have perhaps some of the best central organizations for keeping in a central place records of all sorts of inadequates who come under the care of the state or in a municipality in the state. For one thing, a central eugenics survey, if it is to be permanent, could well prepare a brief case history card to be prepared in duplicate by all of the state and municipal institutions. The institution could keep one copy and could file the second with the central survey.

The establishment of psychiatric clinics is a good thing, but it is not the principal object of a eugenics survey. A eugenics survey needs to locate, first, the inadequates in the state; second, to find out, if possible, why they exist. A preliminary classification could well be made on the (more…)
