April 8, 2015–The largest AIDS-related medical provider in the U.S. is under fresh scrutiny after three former employees alleged a massive kickback scheme in federal court on April 3 [corrected date]. The kickbacks they describe refer to payments made for in-house patient referrals. Read on …

Curiouser and curiouser . . .HIV Innocence Group Truth” blogger J. Todd DeShong says he supports Bobby Russell’s lawsuit against his University of Kentucky doctors for the careless practices that led to his false-positive “HIV” diagnosis, but he is not so sure about Clark Baker and the Office of Medical and Scientific Justice (OMSJ), the investigative agency that made that lawsuit possible. It’s not an attack; it’s a “deconstruction.” And we’re not talking about those tests and how misleading they are, even though DeShong is a lab professional who runs diagnostic tests for hospitals and says he is working toward a master’s degree in molecular diagnostics. The tests are “off topic,” he says.

 

Listen as the distinctions here get finer and finer, more than “How Positive Are You” co-host Elizabeth Ely can comprehend. Isn’t this how sociopaths work? Read on …

. . . Patricia Goodson has actually performed a public service. It is important for people to know that AIDS denialists do indeed still exist.” — so wrote University of Connecticut Prof. Seth Kalichman, who seems to wish they did not. Although some dispute the label “denialist,” Prof. Patricia Goodson of the Department of Health & Kinesiology at Texas A&M University has documented that we who question the science of “HIV” and “AIDS” do indeed still exist. “How Positive Are You” co-host Elizabeth Ely would even welcome a debate on the substantive points, especially whether there is an accurate test for “HIV.”

 

The very day in September 2014 that the open access journal Frontiers published “Questioning the HIV-AIDS Hypothesis: 30 Years of Dissent,” alarm bells began to ring. The journal responded to complaints by issuing a Statement of Concern and launching an investigation into the ethics of Prof. Goodson’s article. In the end, it only downgraded it to “Opinion” and published Dr. Kalichman’s February 2015 response. Read on …

Just like that, about 25 years of risking an “aggravated assault” or similar charge for not informing a sexual partner that you’re “HIV positive” are effectively over. On February 23, 2015, the highest U.S. military court judged the risk of contracting “HIV” from sex as so low that it is no longer a serious crime not to tell sexual partners. Attorney and ex-Marine reservist Kevin McDermott talks to “How Positive Are You” co-host Elizabeth Ely about the decision in United States v. Gutierrez and how it might affect civilian as well as military cases.

The U.S. armed forces mandate “HIV testing” of all active-duty personnel every six months. Testimony in similar court cases has revealed low standards for this testing — and on more health conditions than “HIV.” This has been devastating to the lives, health, careers, reputations, retirement benefits and families of thousands who serve their country. We urge all, inside and outside the military, to review the limitations of HIV testing. Read on …

“If you’re among those legions of boxing fans who think Tommy Morrison died of AIDS, Sunday’s riveting interview on the Ringside Boxing Show might abruptly change your opinion,” writes Dennis Taylor, editor/publisher of the show. He broadcast an excellent interview with Trisha Harding Morrison, widow of heavyweight boxing champion Tommy “The Duke” Morrison, on Sunday, February 8, 2015.

 

You can link to the archived show here. The interview starts at 25:36 and lasts for about half an hour. “How Positive Are You” listeners may recall our two-part “Requiem for a Heavyweight” series with Trisha, available in Parts 1 and 2. We had previously interviewed Tommy himself for Episode 16 in February 2010.

The year is 1987, and the world stands in fear of an alleged new virus, “HIV,” with only one treatment in development, a highly toxic drug called AZT. A medical doctor in Spain gets his own test results — “positive” — and descends into alcoholism and despair. Twenty-seven years later, as featured in the new documentary film Positive Hell, he is healthy and proof that there is indeed life after HIV. Read on …
