August 19, 2016–Variety reported yesterday that former U.S. president Bill Clinton “is resigning from the board” of the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI), a purported worldwide AIDS-fighting organization under the Clinton Foundation. However, the Huffington Post implied that he would resign only if his wife, Hillary Clinton, is elected to the U.S. presidency in November.


Both stories emphasize the apparent conflict of interest as the U.S. election nears (see the Boston Globe’s sudden opinion that the “Clinton Foundation should stop accepting funds”). But might Ortel’s almost-daily media appearances exposing the organization’s corrupt practices have prompted Bill’s decision? Read on …

In August 2010, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange refused to take an “HIV test” in Sweden at the request of two young women with whom he had had consensual sex. To avoid extradition to Sweden to face accusations under that country’s “expansive,” and expanding, rape law, Assange has been effectively imprisoned for the past four years in the Ecuadorian embassy in London.


“Only in the shadow of the 1980s HIV/AIDS mushroom cloud, could a broken condom be met with such hysteria, and morph into a criminal drama, involving several governments and millions of dollars,” wrote former “How Positive Are You” co-host Celia Farber. Close to the fourth anniversary of Assange’s exile, Elizabeth Ely joins Celia in her Manhattan kitchen for tea and discussion of her February 2016 New York Observer article on the sexual politics of this unusual case.

Don’t call Dr. Stefan Lanka a virologist; he no longer believes that viruses even exist. On April 12, “How Positive Are You” co-host David Crowe interviewed this iconoclastic German scientist on “The Infectious Myth” at the Progressive Radio Network (PRN).  Listen HERE.


HPAY last visited the issue in December 2013, in its controversial Episode 74 with Dawn Lester and David Parker of the U.K.’s “Nature of Reality” group. We’re not sure where we stand on it, but the debate should continue.

The Clinton Health Access Initiative advertises its efforts to “help save the lives of millions of people living with HIV/AIDS in the developing world by dramatically scaling up antiretroviral treatment.” This is just one of many large initiatives of the Clinton Foundation. What would that even mean, “dramatically scaling up”?


Strangely enough, the Foundation never received a charter for that purpose. It was established solely to preserve Bill Clinton’s presidential legacy – mainly, by supporting the Clinton presidential library. In his book Giving: How Each of Us Can Change the World, Clinton talks about attending the 2002 Barcelona AIDS conference, where Nelson Mandela and other world leaders asked him to combat AIDS. And yet as Ortel points out, the Foundation’s filings for 2002 do not reflect this mission change.


This is just one of many concerns we discuss in this Episode, including what might be happening to those hapless “HIV/AIDS” patients in rural areas of the Third World. Read on …

April 10, 2016–Telling people not to see an alarming public-health documentary may not be the best strategy to kill it. Perhaps emboldened by recent American censorships of Vaxxed: From Coverup to Catastrophe, the London International Film Festival has pulled AIDS documentary Positive Hell, according to veteran journalist, author and filmmaker Joan Shenton. (We reported on the film in Episodes 72 and 96, and posted a link to a discussion on “The Progressive Film Hour.“) The festival organizer admitted he acted under pressure from LGBT student groups at the university where he teaches.


UPDATE, April 11, 2016–DANGEROUS, ILLICIT, NAUGHTY, FREE viewing: Watch Positive Hell (28 minutes) anyway. (No, don’t. Please, you’ll feel better if you don’t. . . . it’ll hurt others’ feelings . . . don’t even think about it . . . you’re not thinking about it, are you? Mind Police! Open up!)


Meanwhile, former “How Positive Are You” co-host Celia Farber is posting fascinating daily updates on the rapidly failing attempt to censor Vaxxed, so click on over to The Truth BarrierUPDATE, April 11, 2016–Shenton gets her day in the media at “The Truth Barrier,” and she is devastating to this pretense of an “independent” film festival. How, indeed, do LGBT “activists” benefit from silencing positive stories of HIV survival?  (Answer: They collect money.)

What kind of a “science” needs to bully dissenting scientists, smear reputations, misrepresent the content of films, books and articles, and actually warn people not to see, read or listen to these points of view? Unnamed “scientific experts” and their media lapdogs have done exactly these things to censor an important documentary film on vaccine safety, slated to screen at the prestigious Tribeca Film Festival in New York, Vaxxed: From Coverup to Catastrophe.


The pulling of the film occurred after film producer Del Bigtree gave ABC News THIS FULL 10-MINUTE INTERVIEW, as posted by Mike Adams at ‘Natural News,’ but the network used a mere 5 seconds in its report.

Monday, March 28, 2016 – How far will drug companies and U.S. government-funded scientists go to stop criticism of vaccines? Has a leading American actor been threatened?


On Sunday, actor and Tribeca Film Festival founder Robert De Niro removed Dr. Andrew Wakefield’s documentary film Vaxxed: From Coverup to Catastrophe from this year’s official selections. Only one day earlier, De Niro had bravely defended the film’s inclusion without specifically endorsing its views.


In a 10-minute video available on YouTube, investigative reporter Liam Scheff draws a parallel between the censorship of this film about vaccinations and autism and how alternative views of “AIDS” are also suppressed. (He has posted some valuable links there as well.) Read on …

When confronted with new facts, why do we take so long to change our minds? George Borrelli never imagined a different view of “AIDS” science existed until he stumbled on it while researching alternative cancer theories and treatments.


“This really rocked a belief that I thought was so solid that it could not possibly be wrong,” says the retired engineer. “It was such a fundamental belief. I really didn’t want to accept the possibility that what everyone is saying could possibly be false.” Read on …

This time, the scary outbreak-of-the-year may well be a real condition. Doctors in Brazil have noticed a dramatic increase, since August-September 2015, in “pinhead babies” – infants born with shrunken heads and other brain damage, a tragic condition called microcephaly. But is a virus really causing the outbreak?


In this episode of “The Infectious Myth” Internet radio show, Rethinking AIDS president and “How Positive Are You” co-host David Crowe applies experience honed in debunking the HIV theory of AIDS to consider the “Zika” panic. With New York independent researcher Jim West, he looks at the research connecting this virus to microcephaly. LISTEN HERE. Read on …
