It was my privilege and honor to collaborate with Dr. Judy Mikovits on our book, PLAGUE: One Scientist’s Intrepid Search for the Truth About Human Retroviruses, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS), Autism, and Other Diseases.
I can’t say all the details of the pattern of unethical air travel by the Secretary of Health and Human Services, Tom Price are currently clear, although it seems Big Pharma was trying to put him in their pocket.
According to Politico, Price used military aircraft for multi-national trips, as well as private jets in the United States, even when commercial flights were available. The total cost is supposedly more than a million dollars. Price has now resigned and the President has accepted his resignation.
For my part, I am stunned that Dr. Price, a member of the American Academy of Physicians and Surgeons, (a group well-known for its vaccine skepticism), was getting a flu shot on Thursday in the midst of this storm over his air travel. Did he think that would impress his vaccine-skeptical boss? Or was he looking to get fired?
I’m wondering if a new position will open up at Merck for Dr. Price. (President Trump – You need to start tweeting again about the vaccine-autism connection. If you can bring down the NFL, you can certainly do the same to Big Pharma. It would probably take you about a week to forever change America.)
But the unpleasantness with Dr. Price is now behind us…
As President Trump looks to get a new Secretary of Health and Human Services I would like to offer my choice, Dr. Judy Mikovits. Here are all the reasons why she should be in charge.
Dr. Mikovits earned her BA from the University of Virginia and her PhD in biochemistry and molecular biology from George Washington University. She was primarily responsible for the new thinking in the the 1980s that the HIV virus needed to be silenced as quickly as possible in order the halt the development of AIDS.
She worked for more that twenty years at the National Cancer Institute (NCI) with legendary research, Dr. Frank Ruscetti, eventually heading up the lab of Anti-Viral Drug Mechanisms. In 2006 she became interested in the rare cancers plaguing chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) patients.
After looking at their metabolic profiles she saw the possible signature of a retro-virus, similar to HIV. She looked for and found a newly discovered retrovirus in these patients, and published the findings in the world’s most prestigious journal of original scientific research.
I want to state for the record here…
that I did not put the idea of a vaccine contribution to chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) and autism into the head of Dr. Mikovits when I met her. She was already there.
From her work with HIV, she knew the recommended guidelines that any child born to an HIV-infected mother be given anti-retrovirals prior to immunization. The retrovirus liked to hide out in the B and T cells of the immune system, the very cells which would be stimulated by an immunization.
Just as it was feared an immunization might trigger AIDS in somebody who was already carrying the virus, Mikovits suspected any immune system activation among those infected might lead to chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS). Her curious scientific mind couldn’t help but notice that a VERY HIGH percentage of the mothers with chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) also had children with autism.
In a small study she found that 14 out of the 17 children with autism born to mothers with chronic fatigue syndrome tested positive for the virus. That was all before I EVER spoke to her.
What I did provide to her was an origin for this mouse retrovirus which was being found in human beings. That origin point was the 1934-1935 outbreak among 198 doctors and nurses at Los Angeles County General Hospital who were working during a polio outbreak.
The doctors and nurses were given an experimental polio vaccine developed by Dr. Maurice Brodie, which was grown in mouse brain tissues. The medical personnel were also given an “immune booster” which just happened to be preserved with thimerosal, a new mercury derivative.
When I presented this information to Dr. Mikovits I didn’t know how she would react. I’ve seen enough people refuse to look at evidence in this journey that it doesn’t really surprise me when anybody turns away. For most, it is too terrible a possibility to even contemplate.
But Dr. Mikovits is not that kind of person or scientist.
She has a fierce dedication for the truth, regardless of the consequences. I have watched her pursue truth through jail, academic smear, and financial bankruptcy. She has never turned away (although she has been known to swear on occasion) and it is this trait which should win for her the public’s trust.
President Trump, do you know the real sins that caused the troubles of Dr. Mikovits?
She was willing to pursue the vaccine link to serious diseases, and when her employer wanted her to falsify a government document saying that a researcher qualified for federal money, she refused. That employer eventually ended up in jail for campaign violations to U.S. Senator Harry Reid of Nevada.
There is no person in the world who is better suited to be the Secretary of Health and Human Services than Dr. Judy Mikovits. You and the nation will love her. She will pursue the truth and she will safeguard the public treasury.
The book is co-authored with Judy Mikovits PhD. It is an indictment of the “Fake Science” we find so prevalent in the US.
