David Crowe has a new weekly live internet radio show on Gary Null’s Progressive Radio Network.
In this first show David discusses science, as he has experienced it. He particularly focusses on the issue of uncertainty in all sciences, but particularly in the biological sciences, and the contradiction that occurs when medicine tries to promote their products as certain … tests certain to diagnose correctly, drugs certain to cure and not kill.
German filmmaker Anne Sono directed I Won’t Go Quietly, a 2012 documentary about several women who questioned their “HIV-positive” labels and refused to take AIDS drugs. Anne talks with “How Positive Are You” co-host Elizabeth Ely about AIDS authorities’ ongoing attack on families, mothers and nature itself. How much of AIDS rethinking should be a fight against something, and what does it mean to come from a place of “inner strength”? How can our listeners and experts help families in these situations?
Join us as we explore these questions and others. At the time of taping, Sylvie, a mother from Geneva, Switzerland, was fighting to regain medical custody of her infant. (The outcome went against the family; it lacks resources to continue the legal fight.) Barbara Seebald‘s recent victory in her appeal against the Austrian authorities inspires hope; however, she still seeks custody of one of her children, Muriel, featured in the film and now five years old.
Anne is an independent filmmaker and owner of Blue Bell Media. She has a degree in economics and has worked as a business manager and economist for film production companies and alternative schools. One of these schools she founded herself.
I Won’t Go Quietly (short version in English here; British filmmaker Joan Shenton‘s review here) features, in addition to Seebald’s story, the stories of Americans Karri Stokely, Lindsey Nagel (now the mother of Baby Rico, the subject of Episode 61), Norwegian Line Halstad and two Russian women — one of whom was murdered the night of the film’s premiere, with no evidence so far that this was related to her testimony in the film. (See “Requiem for Tamara.”)
In the years preceding this groundbreaking documentary, Anne made four other films: . . . Denn Ich Werde Gelebt Haben (Then I Shall Have Lived), about two women diagnosed with breast cancer at a very young age; Dream School; School Is Over; and Ship of Fools, about the German anti-psychiatric movement. Anne gratefully accepts donations and other forms of support for her work.
You can arrange a screening of I Won’t Go Quietly, for instance at cinemas, vegetarian restaurants, associations, or on TV. It is currently enjoying growing interest in France, and volunteers have made it available in nine languages. To schedule a screening, contact Anne and order a DVD here. As far as she knows, this film has never been shown publicly in the U.S.; your event might very well be its American premiere, and “How Positive Are You” would help publicize it if you let us know.
Watch this space for updates on Anne’s next project, a film about mainstream cancer treatments and their risks. Please support this project by visiting here.
On January 21, 2014 — the day after Martin Luther King, Jr. Day — a jury in Atlanta found African-American Craig Lamar Davis guilty of two counts of aggravated assault for not telling his sexual partners that he had tested “HIV positive” in 2005. Three expert witnesses had testified as to how inaccurate and illogical HIV testing is, and Davis’ doctors and lab each admitted that they had not adequately diagnosed him. The jury did not explain this contradiction. Clark Baker of the Office of Medical and Scientific Justice (OMSJ) talks about his organization’s involvement in the case and what the verdict means, going forward.
Calling Davis’ alleged HIV infection a “deadly weapon,” Clayton County Prosecutor Kathryn Powers did her best to whip up AIDS-related fears and phobias. That was enough to convince a jury conditioned by more than 30 years of AIDS propaganda — much of it aimed at African-Americans. Not even OMSJ’s expert scientific witnesses Rodney Richards, Ph.D.; David Rasnick, Ph.D.; and Nancy Turner Banks, M.D. could stop the madness. Davis now faces up to 20 years in prison, with sentencing scheduled for February 21.
David and Beth note the similarities between this trial and the July 2013 trial of Nushawn Williams in Upstate New York. “How Positive Are You” interviewed Ithaca College Professor Thomas Shevory, author of Notorious HIV:The Media Spectacle of Nushawn Williams, in Episode 64.
With a mission “to protect and defend the victims and witnesses of medical and scientific corruption,” Baker founded OMSJ as a California licensed private investigation agency in 2009. Before becoming the organization’s CEO and principal investigator, he had served his country in the United States Marine Corps and retired from a distinguished career in the Los Angeles Police Department. OMSJ’s HIV Innocence Group has assisted in the defense of more than 50 criminal cases, with all but four resulting in favorable plea agreements, acquittal, or the withdrawal of all HIV-related charges. The Letterhead Project and Scarlet Letter help alleged HIV positives document their misdiagnoses.
One of the prosecution’s witnesses, Courtney Shelton, M.D., of Atlanta Medical Center, is listed on ProPublica’s “Dollars for Docs” database receiving gifts from a pharmaceutical company. Dr. Shelton admitted on the stand that he never actually diagnosed Davis as having HIV. In Baker’s estimation, ”roughly 90% of all HIV-positive results were probably never diagnosed, because a test result is not a diagnosis. Doctors and clinics sidestep this fact by using what Baker calls a “psychologically manipulative script” that moves the conversation quickly from an alleged test result to seeking “supportive” friends and outing sexual partners.
Lack of scientific rigor, a business model based on rushing a vaccine to the market without long-term safety testing, hysterical risk/benefit assumptions around an emotionally charged and highly dangerous disease — does this sound familiar? Did we forget to mention, enormous profits? A campaign is well underway, to declare the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) a leading cause of cervical cancer and promote the Gardasil vaccine against it. It’s “HIV 2.0,” as noted Viennese gynecologist and Rethinking AIDS board member Dr. Christian Fiala calls it.
RA and Alberta Reappraising AIDS Society President David Crowe leads an uncommonly specific, scientific and rational conversation on this controversial topic, which Katie Couric recently covered on her ABC talk show, Katie. Even the mainstream “experts” state that everyone should seek an “informed decision” on whether to get vaccinated, so let’s get informed already. . . .
Fourteen years after the media announced HPV with great fanfare, sexism and logical inconsistencies in an article by Dr. Jerome Groopman in The New Yorker, the basic question remains: Does HPV cause cervical cancer? Dr. Fiala examines the evidence for causation versus “association” and finds it lacking and unconvincing. Yet, based on a small, mostly speculative benefit against cancer, we are urged to vaccinate children as young as 11 years of age — what “How Positive Are You” co-host Elizabeth Ely calls here “the sacrifice of the virgins.”
We were surprised to learn that even noted AIDS dissident scientist and fellow RA board member Dr. Peter Duesberg has published a paper on the topic (excerpted here under “HPV and Cancer”) as part of his continuing research into chromosomal factors in cancer (aneuploidy). And David quotes the CDC’s own Web page on just how “rare” the serious and/or fatal effects of Gardasil aren’t. (“The 1 to 10% rate of reporting adverse events is from other sources, but I’ve seen that several times, for example, as a disclaimer at the bottom of every page of a Canadian adverse reaction report,” he says.)
Big pharma Merck has even managed to float a propaganda campaign to take a weakness of the vaccine – a mere five years of data on cancer prevention and debilitating side effects studied so far — and turn it into a strength by recommending re-vaccination every five years. (Ka-ching!)
Meanwhile, we’ve been getting some strong reactions to a recent Podcast, Episode 74 on Why Germs Don’t Make You Ill & Drugs Can’t Cure You. See more excerpts from the online discussion here. David and Beth briefly discuss this feedback and invite further comments by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org or posting at our Facebook page, “How positive are you?“.
CENSORSHIP ALERT!: The first two Katie interviews linked above are — shockingly — difficult to find on the show’s Web site and have either disappeared from, or drifted far down on, Google search results. We think that’s a good enough reason for our listeners to share them far and wide, don’t you? We provide them again for your convenience:
These two interviews, with mothers and daughters, are no longer searchable:
Is the HIV Vaccine Safe?
Was the HPV Vaccine Responsible for One Girl’s Death?
However, a third interview, with a government “expert,” appears prominently on the show’s home page. Sadly, this expert spouts statistics without mentioning how they were arrived at, lacks any scientific context as to causation, and urges parents “to have a good conversation about the vaccines and to get them“:
HPV Vaccine Conversation Continued
Couric had visited the Gardasil controversy before. Famous American gynecologist and natural-hormones advocate Dr. Christiane Northrup reacted eloquently to a 2009 CBS News report, and also provided advice for preventing cervical cancer. Be well!
Trisha Morrison talks about her struggle to find the truth about the death of her husband, boxer Tommy Morrison, on a blog talk radio show.
Trisha is interviewed on the Matty P Radio Happy Hour. Click that link to listen to the whole show. This HPAY XTRA episode just contains the portion involving Trisha Morrison.
The discussion talks a lot about what HIV tests mean, and also about the true cause of death of Tommy Morrison, which appears to be surgical error.
If you are interested in the Tommy Morrison case, please see earlier podcasts:
This isn’t your usual, heartwarming living-with-HIV story. In August 2013, having found that he was “false positive,” Bobby Russell stopped taking “AIDS” drugs and filed a lawsuit against several doctors, hospitals and others over what they had put him through unnecessarily for more than eight years. As fate would have it, one of Bobby’s former doctors is now head of a major medical association.
Bobby tested, allegedly, positive in September 2004, just over a month after the last of a series of negative tests. He had, at the time, serious internal bleeding, so HIV seemed to explain his weakened immune system without looking too far inside. The problem was, although his doctor insisted the “confirmatory” Western Blot test (for all its flaws) was positive, it was actually negative.
For about eight years Bobby had been on AIDS drugs that caused serious side effects. And he only had relationships with HIV-positive people because he didn’t want to be responsible for infecting anyone.
In 2009 there was a negative Western Blot, but the social worker decided it must be wrong and convinced the lab to change the result to positive. Finally, in 2012 Bobby discovered his original, negative Western Blot.
However, this did not release Bobby from bondage in the AIDS Zone. Now he believed he had been putting himself at risk for eight years through deliberate, unprotected sex with HIV-positive people. So he stayed on the drugs in the belief this would protect him from infection, despite the side effects.
Is there even any such thing as a true positive result on an “HIV test”? What happens in a typical AIDS “support group”? Are patients truly “in denial” if they question their test results? What can you do about it if you suspect you are being targeted by fraudulent HIV testing? When you are “at the end of your rope” with nothing but a prayer/intention, how does God/the universe answer your prayer?
Elizabeth previously interviewed Bobby’s lawyer about this and other current lawsuits in Episode 71, “Sue ‘Em Now with Attorney Jonathan Dailey” — on the possibility of such legal actions forcing AIDS clinics and others to “put up or shut up” on their claims concerning HIV and AIDS.
We will update this page with a link to Bobby’s public-figure Facebook page, which he mentions here, when it goes live.
Reg is a gay man living in New York City who has been on and off AIDS drugs for more than 15 years. Marlene is a health consultant living in the southern U.S. who has extensively researched the psychological and physical benefits of cannabis oil. Together, Reg and Marlene tell us how the miracle claims made for cannabis oil could be credible, and what it is like to use this substance derived from a strain of the marijuana plant to kick the “anti-retroviral” (ARV) habit once and for all.
Reg tested positive for “HIV” in 1996 and went on the new so-called “cocktails” including protease inhibitors shortly thereafter. After hearing several dissident speakers and reading Christine Maggiore’s book, he understood the AIDS dissident point of view and discontinued his drug regimen. However, he went back on ARVs after a persistent illness and the associated fear and withdrawal symptoms. He has been using cannabis oil to help him stop taking Edurant, Epivir and Viread – his fifth attempt to get off ARVs.
After listening to this Podcast, our listeners might wish to check out the documentary film Run from the Cure, about Canadian farmer Rick Simpson and his invention of cannabis oil; the documentary film What If Cannabis Cured Cancer; the book Why Germs Don’t Make You Ill & Drugs Can’t Cure You (covered in Episode 74 of “How Positive Are You”); and Episode 13 on the untimely death of artist Keith Haring shortly after beginning a ddI (didanosine/Videx)-based drug regimen. The recent feature film Dallas Buyers Club depicts quite a different kind of buyers’ club than the cannabis oil community and was reviewed by co-host Elizabeth Ely here.
A map of the legal status of medical and recreational marijuana in the U.S., by state, is available here. Please note, “medical marijuana” does not necessarily mean easy or legal availability of Rick Simpson/cannabis oil, a concentrated form of certain strains of the plant. A similar map of Canada, by postal code, is here.

Dawn Lester and David Parker are co-authors, under the pseudonym NoR (Nature of Reality), of a brief, easy-to-read book titled Why Germs Don’t Make You Ill & Drugs Can’t Cure You. They talk to “How Positive Are You” co-hosts David Crowe and Elizabeth Ely about the three prerequisites for good health – good nutrition, low stress and avoidance of toxins.
Lester and Parker’s courses and discussion groups in Britain led them to write their first book, The Nature of Reality: Exploding the Mind, Body, Spirit Myth. As they became more aware of the unscientific basis of mainstream medicine, they expanded their chapter about the nature of illness into their second book, which we talk about here.
As professionals in fields that require analytical minds – accounting and engineering — they followed the evidence on health in an unbiased and straightforward way, realizing that the mainstream medical establishment is built on a faulty paradigm that can never deliver health – only profits. We join them on this journey of understanding of the true cause of illness and how to be, and remain, naturally healthy.
Their research is self-funded, and that they are not affiliated with any commercial concerns. Their Web site is howtobenaturallyhealthy.com. Their discussion with David and Beth covers much more than HIV and AIDS but is certainly relevant.
Mentioned in this Podcast is a book called American Holocaust, by David E. Stannard, about the genocide of natives in the Americas, covered up as contagious epidemics. Further, “Stannard contends that the perpetrators of the American Holocaust drew on the same ideological wellspring as did the later architects of the Nazi Holocaust.” Also mentioned is Dr. Henry Bieler‘s Food Is Your Best Medicine.
Regarding the effects of repeated use of antibiotics (including the so-called “anti-retrovirals”), check our Episode 58, interviewing Swiss gay activist Felix de Fries.
Brian Carter is a 53-year-old gay man who has been living in Los Angeles for 14 years. Diagnosed “HIV positive” in 2006, he considered evidence on “HIV” from both sides and decided to reject his diagnosis and never to take HIV drugs. We asked him: How is that going?
From the very beginning of his journey — his diagnosis — Brian felt that there was something wrong with the information he was given. Gay communities in particular are vulnerable to AIDS propaganda and tend to reinforce it. But there is power in numbers: When he heard that he was not alone in his skepticism, his position solidified. He touts the importance of a healthy lifestyle and a life without major stresses. Belief in HIV — or anything that can jump out of the bushes or from underneath your bed and kill you — is one of the biggest stresses there is! Brian remains healthy and drug free, another living reminder that you don’t have to panic when you find out that you have HIV “antibodies.”
One of the most important “dissident” articles that influenced Brian’s decision to reject antiretroviral drugs and the whole “HIV=AIDS” dogma was “AIDS and the Voodoo Hex” by Dr. Matt Irwin. Brian was also a friend of the late Christine Maggiore. He talks about her and about Alive and Well, the organization she founded.
