My title is wrong or a little misleading. It should be “cover-ups” at the CDC because there have been many. Here are just a few of them.
It seems, ineptitude, ineffectiveness, insensitivity have always been the norm at the CDC. In 2014, the CDC senior research scientist Dr. William Thompson publicly admitted that he and his coauthors committed research fraud during the agency’s 2004 autism-MMR study. Republican Congressman Bill Posey pleaded with Congress to do an investigation without success. The intrepid politicians and mainstream media moguls were not interested in an investigation that would embarrass the health officials.
My critics will declare that the autism-measles connection has been settled; however, even if true, that is not the issue. The issue is the admitted cover-up.
While the scientists at the CDC are all highly credentialed with MDs and Ph.Ds., they often act like a bunch of elementary students. An October 25, 1986, UPS article revealed “infighting so severe among CDC researchers that some were sabotaging the experiments of their rivals. There were reportedly squabbles over who would get credit for writing certain papers. Some researchers charged high-level CDC officials with suppressing research. For example, one paper showing that commercially available spermicides will kill the AIDS virus within 60 seconds was blocked from publication.”
Can you imagine grown people, scientists yet, fussing over credit for a paper and sabotaging another’s experiments? Simply give credit to the person who wrote it! If there was more than one author, then credit each one! No big deal. But suppressing, sabotaging research, and blocking information the public needs is scandalous. Additionally, there was a significant fuss between two scientists as to which one had first discovered HIV as the cause of AIDS. Most people don’t know or remember that embarrassing fuss among the world’s top scientists.
That is no way to run a pig farm.
Dr. Gus Sermos, former Public Health Advisor and AIDS Researcher at the CDC, revealed in his book Doctors of Deceit that the “negligence, incompetence, arrogance and complete lack of leadership” during the AIDS epidemic by the Public Health authorities and the CDC have caused the American citizens to become nothing more than “unconsenting guinea pigs.” In the U.S., the AIDS epidemic infected 38,000 people in 2018, and in 2017, there were more than 16,000 HIV deaths.
Sermos was known as a “top U.S. expert in AIDS” and was an epidemiologist at the CDC having researched 850 cases of AIDS. He told me, “I worked eight years with the CDC on infectious diseases. We had guidelines we were always required to follow, but when AIDS came along, they disregarded their own guidelines! I was disillusioned.” In one of my four interviews with CDC spokesman Dr. Scott Holmberg, he denied the charge. I wasn’t surprised.
In my book, AIDS: Silent Killer!, on scores of talk shows, and in my columns in USA Today, I implored health officials to treat the AIDS plague as a health issue, not as a homosexual issue. I asked that the same procedures that had permitted U.S. health officials to discover, diagnose, and defeat the syphilis epidemic be followed in the AIDS battle. I asked for testing of all prisoners, all immigrants, all hospital patients, and all future patients so we could have an idea who was infected. That seemed fundamental to me.
It was not fundamental to leaders of our national health. In the January 16, 1987 issue, USA Today reported that Surgeon General Koop told Congress contract tracing of sexual partners would be “intrusive, impractical, and ineffective.” All sane people mocked his nonsensical statement. Note that no one is questioning that same protocol today with the Chinese coronavirus. Could it be because those carriers don’t have a powerful lobbying group as do homosexuals to defend their right to privacy?
During early HIV days when I was involved with the battle for common sense protocols, I stated that all who tested positive should be interviewed as to all their sexual contacts, then have those contacts interviewed and follow each of their sexual contacts. That was when I hit a stone wall.
However, that is precisely the protocols followed in the previous successful battle with the syphilis scourge. I then suggested that any AIDS carrier who had sex with anyone should be prosecuted. After all, dead is dead, whether by gun or germ. Bang! The stone wall came tumbling on my head.
Dr. Sermos declared that CDC ordered AIDS researchers not to notify the sexual contacts of AIDS patients about their exposure to HIV. That was insensitive and incredible and insane not to inform people that they were probably HIV infected for which there was no cure! That’s our public health organization! Health officials let people die rather than embarrass homosexuals—the foundation of HIPPA laws we live with today.
During a recent daily White House Chinese coronavirus briefing, Dr. Anthony Fauci said, “During that time, there was [an] extraordinary stigma, particularly against the gay community. It was only when the world realized how the gay community responded to this outbreak with incredible courage and dignity and strength and activism – I think that really changed some of the stigmas against the gay community, very much so.” Pathetic, pointless, pandering to perversion.
Fauci knows that the AIDS crisis was caused and driven by the absurd, abnormal, and abominable sexual practices of homosexual men. There is no legitimate comparison to the Chinese coronavirus that is usually contracted in an unknown, unknowable, unsullied way.
It is permissible to shame people to lose weight and to stop smoking, but one must never embarrass anyone for his deviant, dangerous, and deadly sexual practices. Scientists are not supposed to be sensitive to politics; however, that is a myth. The scientists at the CDC are dependent on federal funding; moreover, they also accept funding from Big Pharma. Wait a minute, isn’t that a significant conflict of interest?
My suggestions, demands, and requests were not only rejected, even ridiculed, but after the horse was out of the barn, the kitty was out of the sack, and the toothpaste out of the tube, some homosexual groups suggested the same protocols that I laid out in my book and on talk shows. But too late.
It appears that leading health officials are more desirous, dedicated, and determined to social management than truth and safety. Yet, most citizens are trusting them to put an end to the Chinese coronavirus pandemic.
Never have so many trusted so few with so much— at such enormous costs.

Fact, Fraud or Faith?
by Don Boys, Ph.D.
Only an uninformed fanatic says that evolution or creation can be proved scientifically. Christians believe in creationism because we believe in the veracity of the Bible but we also have scientific evidence to support our position. In every debate I’ve had with evolutionary scientists, the arrogant, asinine accusation is made, “Well, evolution is scientific while creationism is religion.” Evolution is about as scientific as a voodoo rooster plucking ceremony in Haiti. Almost.
