OMSJ Prompts Nat’l HIV Policy Change in Nine Months

July 20, 2010

After almost two decades of misguided policies based entirely upon pharmaceutical propaganda, the NIH and CDC have convinced the Obama Administration to ask state officials to drop the criminal prosecution of allegedly HIV+ Americans.  This decision comes only nine months after OMSJ began to force prosecutors to prove that HIV tests detect HIV.

Troubling signs

In 2008, the Semmelweis Report identified serious inconsistencies and red flags among HIV researchers, legislators and activists who receive funding from an industry that has paid $8 billion to settle dozens of criminal and civil complaints since 2004.

Part of the problem stems from industry regulators who help companies like GlaxoSmithKline and Astra Zeneca arrange million dollar fines for illegally marketing deadly drugs like Avandia and Seroquel that generate billions of dollars annually.  Although these drugs kill or injure thousands of Americans each year, company executives avoid prison by paying small fines that are generally covered by higher drug prices.

The fact that HIV drugs cause many of the same diseases they ostensibly prevent is another flag.  Unfortunately, as the drugs kill, their mortality is then used to generate media reports that prompts people to seek meaningless tests and debilitating treatments that eventually destroy their lives.

Nothing sells HIV testing and treatment better than news reports about HIV arrests.  When someone is publicly accused of spreading HIV to dozens of partners,  the resulting hysteria can generate hundreds of unnecessary tests and millions of dollars of taxpayer-funded medication and treatment.  But when prosecutors are unable to prove the charges, newspapers never report that charges were dropped.

Proof of Concept

Although no sensible person trusts the word of serial felons, regulators, academics, universities and legislators who receive pharmaceutical funding turn a blind eye to the corruption.

Despite withering attacks from what investigative reporter Shannon Brownlee calls “drug whores,” OMSJ began to force prosecutors of criminal HIV cases to prove HIV tests actually detect HIV in 2009.

The simplicity of the test was apparently too much for prosecution experts.  Despite the billions of dollars spent producing millions of pages of HIV research for three decades, experts who helped prosecutors put people like Willie Campbell and Philippe Padieu away for the rest of their lives were suddenly unavailable to testify under oath in OMSJ’s presence.  In most cases, defense attorneys required little more than an affidavit to convince prosecutors to dismiss all HIV-related charges.

After prosecutors dropped or lost six cases in nine months, the Obama Administration has asked state officials to end HIV prosecutions altogether.   Obama’s report cites “Human Rights” as a pretext, how long the Justice Department will take to free wrongfully-convicted victims of pharmaceutical propaganda is less certain.
