Yesterday, Margarite emailed me a copy of the CDC's press release about their Morgellon's "study," noting the ominous interest of and partnering with the Armed Forces Pathology Lab. Indeed. They probably inadvertently created it via the toxic effects of chemtrail fallout. There are some indications of that possibility extant in the research conducted to date... none of which CDC acknowledges, but is readily available by merely Googling it. Sounds eerily typical, doesn't it? I noticed the paltry sum of $338,000, which will buy diddly squat. If that.
I've posted Morgellons pieces here at High Strangeness and they still help people, directing them to the research foundation. The fact they get so many hits right up to now is indicative of the widespread global interest and deep concern for this very, very creepy disease. I've seen macro videography of these fibers moving. That is scary. I once even got a phone call from a reader thanking me for my efforts. That pretty well shocked me, since I haven't exactly posted voluminously about it.
Today I found this article over at Rense. It's pretty complete but doesn't mention the military and has a slightly higher figure for the amount to be spent. That's not important at the moment... the message is though...
CDC/Kaiser 'Groundbreaking' Morgellons Study A Fraud!
By Cliff Mickelson
Much sound and fury is currently being generated by mainstream media concerning the recent CDC announcement that Kaiser Permanente has been selected by the CDC to conduct a "groundbreaking" study into the causes and nature of what the CDC and Kaiser both euphemistically (and erroneously) term Morgellons "syndrome."
In the opening news conference statement to the press, The CDC's principle investigator Dr. Michele Pearson, with his Kaiser counterpart, Dr. Joe Selby at his side, sets the tone for a CDC position on this issue that can only be described as disingenuous at best.
"There is insufficient information," intones Dr. Pearson, "to determine whether persons who identify themselves as having this condition, have common cause for their symptoms or may share common risk factors."
This statement speaks volumes. One can only suppose that the good doctor is either stunningly under-informed or is a deliberate liar. In light of readily available information that has come into the possession of this writer, Dr. Pearson and his friends over at Kaiser Permanente appear to be fully informed as to the scope and nature of this affliction.
Furthermore, the CDC is quite clearly aware that there already exists a large body of professional Morgellons research that has been done under the organized auspices of former Morgellons Research Foundation scientist Dr. Randy Wymore.
Dr.Wymore, the current head of Morgellons research at the prestigious school of pharmacology at Oklahoma State University, has personally briefed CDC officials in the past. Nonetheless, the Atlanta based organization showed very little interest in the subject of Morgellons or in Dr. Wymore's revolutionary findings concerning the growing danger this affliction poses to society at large.
The CDC is also aware that there exists a large compendium of additional work available for referencing. A great deal of research has been performed in the last few years by a select number of other professionally qualified medical-field researchers including such well known notables as Dr.William Harvey, Dr. Hildegarde Staninger, and Dr. Rahim Karjoo
In his opening CDC press conference statement Dr. Pearson uses the term "common risk factors" as a descriptive term... For those who are the uninitiated, that is CDC doublespeak for drug abuse or delusional mental illness.
This denigrating and underhanded remark is a direct slap in the face of Morgellons patients, many of whom are children, senior citizens, teachers, nurses or other medical professionals. Such eye-opening statements belie the truth behind the thought processes taking place in the halls of the CDC. They give the astute observer an inkling of what lays in store for "Morgies" who are trusting enough to ignore the telegraphed meaning of such implied signals.
For reasons they have apparently chosen not to make public, the CDC has therefore deliberately decided to ignore, negate and suppress the considerable body of nearly three years worth of ongoing, highly qualified field work by others outside the CDC nexus. They have chosen instead to form an unholy alliance with the largest HMO/insurer in the world, Kaiser Permanente.
By marginalizing professional research that has already taken place during the CDC's long and curious absence from the Morgellons issue, they are now seen to be suddenly setting themselves up as the sole judge of any consequence in the public eye. This is a very dangerous and powerful position for an organization with a track record like the CDC to be allowed to place itself in. Morgellons sufferers had best beware.
In what is probably the biggest conflict of interest since convicted felon Henry Blodget was hired as a Wall Street securities analyst, the Kaiser "fox" is now being given the keys to the CDC's hen house. In return, it appears that the CDC expects the obliging chickens to gratefully invite him in for dinner.
It may well be that the CDC announcement concerning the much ballyhooed Morgellons research grant is little more than self-serving bureaucratic sound and fury...or it may be that a much darker and deadlier game is being played. A cursory study of the CDC's woeful lack of past interaction with the Morgellons community will open a Pandora's box of questions that beg answers .
There is little doubt that the CDC knows how to play the political game. Based on past experience, many Morgies are of the opinion that the Kaiser "study" is little more than under-funded pork, a shuck, a jive, political chicanery and, at worst, a cynical lip service designed to throw a fog over the clever methodology of how bureaucracies with something to hide engage in issue assassination.
So why, we might wonder, would the Mandarins of the CDC engage in such transparently duplicitous behavior? Why would they spend hard earned tax dollars for information that already exists and could be had with a simple conference call or two? Well, the answer is at once simple and yet Byzantine.
It is germane to note that by their own malfeasant admission, over the last eight years the CDC has received thousands upon thousands of requests for help from Morgellons victims. All of these pleas, until now, fell upon deaf ears. Not one red cent was ever spent to determine what it was that was taking place not only across America but around the world as well. Meanwhile the CDC has spent millions of taxpayer dollars on an unending parade of fizzled "non-event" epidemics that have come and gone during that same time frame. A number of these high dollar non-event epidemics affected less than a dozen people across the country while others never materialized at all!
As the white rabbit would say: Curiouser and curiouser!
Now, at the behest of the Morgellons study, the CDC is dipping into the trough of public tax dollars once again. This time however, the bucket has come up woefully short. A pitiful $360 K is all that is earmarked for this study!
Let's think about that for a moment. $360 K is less than the price of an average split-level home in Los Angeles County. What will 360 K buy in today's world of bloated research budgets? The salaries of the research staff alone should total more than that. What can we assume will be the cost of high technology tests and other high tech equipment needed to insure accurate Morgellons test results? Modern research tests can easily run into the hundreds of thousands of dollars. Private researcher, Dr. Hildegarde Staninger, reports that she has independently spent $39,000 of private money on such tests and that many more tests are still in need of performing.
It doesn't take an accountant to figure out that three hundred and sixty thousand dollars is not going to buy much in the way of a reliable study...and..It doesn't take a Weatherman to figure out which way the wind is blowing in the halls of the CDC.
Morgellons activists need to wake up and smell the coffee. The CDC has no intention of solving the Morgellons mystery. Those who think otherwise need to review the history of the CDC's hostile and dismissive interaction with the Morgellons community over the span of the last eight to ten years. Under modest scrutiny it becomes painfully apparent that this study is a farce and a fraud.
What it is actually being sold to the gullible among us is smoke and mirrors. For a variety of hidden reasons the CDC is offering up the public expedient of having done their "part."
Meanwhile, behind the scenes, the daggers are being sharpened in the dark hallways of Kaiser and the CDC. Morgellons victims who, in their current desperation, rush to embrace these bureaucratic assassins of Faith and Hope would do well to wear extra body armor.
