Even the mainstream AIDS media are abuzz over this one. Three former employees of the AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) are acting under the federal Whistleblower Act to sue this largest U.S. AIDS medical services provider. At issue is an alleged kickback scheme for patient referrals estimated at $20 million per year.
AHF president Michael Weinstein has answered with the everybody-does-it defense. The rest of the AIDS industry is calling for his head, as it has for the past half-year over his criticism of Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP). Weinsten has further self-nominated himself as “czar” to police safe sex in the porn industry.
April 23, 2015–Just in time for “Rethinking AIDS Day” a/k/a “AIDS Fraud Day,” the 31st anniversary of the famous press conference announcing a virus as the “probable cause of AIDS,” a group of doctors working for the very same Dr. Robert Gallo are draining the Office of Medical and Scientific Justice (OMSJ) of the resources needed to continue defending the landmark case that has effectively ended “HIV criminalization” in the U.S.
The case of Air Force Technical Sergeant David Gutierrez was the subject of our Episode 97.

“I listen to your show because it is one of the few sources of intelligent news about the wacky world of AIDS. I’ve been following the insanity for almost 20 years now, and every time I see a mainstream article about AIDS spouting the tired old party line, my heart sinks. Every time a friend or family member unquestioningly believes what they hear about “science” from “experts”, it sinks again. Listening to your podcast reminds me that I’m not the only person on the planet who doesn’t swallow all the misinformation we’re being fed. Listening to you gives me hope!”
