This kind of research isn't going to cut into the revenue stream of the African dictators and UN royalty, is it?

In the 80's they kept saying that huge numbers of Americans of all kinds would get HIV and die. 10% 20% up and up...

But we are in America and people can see with their own eyes everyone isn't dying of AIDS.

But Africa is far away and remote. And they can tell stories of weird sexual practices etc...

More inconvenient facts to refute PC-driven pseudo science's justification for making a big grab for our wallets.

Someday, when we are much older or gone, the medical historians will look upon our medicine men as heathens, and proclaim themselves as much superior, learning nothing from the HIV+ = AIDS hysteria.

Because Africa is disorganised and, in some parts, unknowable,
Well, looks like Rummyspeak is mutating at least ...

Giving computers to public health professionals (who by their nature have a vested interest in finding the spread of disease) was as prudent as givng computers to real estate developers.
Once real estate developers had computers (and LOTUS 1-2-3 programs) they could make any proposed project, however foolish, look profitable.
Just change a factor or two, and, presto, the demand for apartments/office buildings/shopping centers will grow at 10% a year for ever. Rents can be increased without limit, and expenses will decline every year.
And all this magic will be displayed with charts, tables and graphs in the most professional manner that can be imagined.
The result - well, you know the result - was the savings and loan debacle.
I have no doubt that one day the AIDS crisis will be ex-
posed as - at least in large part - a contrived fraud.
The sad part is that the woman mentioned in the article will be unrepentent.
She and others of her ilk will admit that mistakes were made but proclaim with righteous justification that the mistakes were made for the best of reasons and that some good was done.
Then, she will progress to the next cause, believing with unblinking certainty whatever foolishness the mainstream media proclaims.
And she will demand that the public till be tapped to satisfy her cause.
Like those suffering from AIDS, she is a victim. Her disease is not of the body but of the mind. She has great empathy for the ills of others but lacks judgement; she lacks the ability to think critically; and she lacks the capacity to use a facility that is now reviled but was once consiedered an attribute: she lacks discrimination.

James Hogan, one of the best science fiction authors writing today, has a solid collection of AIDS skepticism articles on his website.

As usual, sir, your posts are superb. My first search each day is for your posts. You rarely fail to live up to my expectations.

I think it is time to start questioning some of the claims made by the Aids lobby. Their certainties are so fanatical, the powers they claim so far-reaching. Their authority is ultimately derived from computer-generated estimates, which they wield like weapons, overwhelming any resistance with dumbfounding atom bombs of hypothetical human misery. Give them their head, and they will commandeer all resources to fight just one disease. Who knows, they may defeat Aids, but what if we wake up five years hence to discover that the problem has been blown up out of all proportion by unsound estimates, causing upwards of $20 billion to be wasted?

Add this to the similarly-generated hysteria over global warming and all other such pseudoscientific lefty causes, and we can say with Senator Dirksen, "A billion here, a billion there, and pretty soon you're talking about some REAL MONEY!"

INTEGRATED DISEASE SURVEILLANCE
From the World Health Organisation- Africa official website.

A Regional Strategy for Communicable diseases (1999-2003)

Annex 1, Page 22
CASE DEFINITIONS FOR NOTIFYING DISEASE OCCURRENCE
BY COMMUNITY TO HEALTH FACILITY

"AIDS Any person with a large weight loss or diarrhoea for more than a month"

http://www.whoafr.org/ids/articles/engdiseasesurv.pdf

You can see from this definition of AIDS, whos use is mandatory, that anyone in Africa who gets sick from a "traditional" illness, gets lumped in with the AIDS figures.

These numbers are completely invented.

Don't ever , ever question the AIDS lobby....it will be an exercise in futility....

all of a sudden there will be this huge unified voice of condemnation, and ridicule.....you will be branded an unprincipled racist Christian fundamentalist ( oh no...not thatttt!).

I have been waiting for the big "die-off " for many years...it has never happened, and the death rates in poor countries in Africa and Asia certainly are nothing to brag about, but I personally think they are no higher than 30 or 40 years ago... and that even without the DX of AIDS, people would probably still be dying at similar rates....(malaria and gastroenteritis are big killers in Third world countries)

the powers that be have so expanded the definition of what constitutes AIDS that more and more people are conveniently fitting into the category....

people are dying of HIV in Africa the way people are dying here in America from the "flu".....

which means, that the flu is not the killer, its all the other germs that attack your weakened system....

Thanks for posting this excellent article.

To hear them talk, Aids is the only problem in Africa, and the only solution is to continue the agitprop until free access to Aids drugs is defined as a ‘basic human right’ for everyone

Of course libertine behavior is partly reponssible for the increase in AIDS infection...but there is another infection and that is the corrupt brutal leadership throughout Africa (not all) that confiscates fruitful farms because they are owned by whites as in Zimbabwe by the despicably self interested monster Mobutu and completely mad leaders such as we have seen in Sudan (genocide) and South Africa etc.
