Onebornfree is scheduled to be my return guest on Exposing Faux Capitalism, on November 17, 2013 from 8 to 10 PM EST.
With renewed interest in alternative 9/11 research from some recent interviews, the topic will be 9/11.
For these recent interviews, see:
1) Summary of John Friend’s excellent interview with Simon Shack of September Clues, November 6, 2013
2) Why is John Friend giving a platform to Ace Baker, who discredited himself by faking his own suicide on-air?
3) Onebornfree’s third interview by James Fetzer
O.B.F. was previously on my show on September 15, discussing anarcho-capitalism.

My email subsequent to this October 9, 2013 Slate article, Tommy Morrison AIDS Death: HIV denialism victims in South Africa and the U.S., by Dr. Kent Sepkowitz:
You claimed in your article about Tommy Morrison, referring to Dr. Peter Duesberg:
“The simplest to refute is his claim that HIV had not been transmitted to health care workers who had sustained an accidental needle stick”
He never said that. He said no peer-reviewed paper has ever been published showing a health care worker getting AIDS — not HIV — from a patient.
That’s a big mistake, to conflate HIV with AIDS, in misrepresenting his claim, as you did.
For more on what Dr. Peter Duesberg has really said about AIDS, see this interview I conducted with him.
Also, the official death certificate of Tommy Morrison shows that he didn’t die of an AIDS-defining disease, and Dr. Sepkowitz is either an incompetent doctor and researcher, or he’s a libelous writer.
For more on the AIDS scam, see my articles here.

Dr. Henry Bauer, author of Dogmatism in Science and Medicine: How Dominant Theories Monopolize Research and Stifle the Search for Truth, was my guest on the October 6, 2013 episode of Exposing Faux Capitalism. The commercial-free archive can be found here.
We discussed the following issues:
- He was retired in 2004 when he started looking into official statistics about HIV/AIDS
- He was surprised by statistics put out in the 1980s by the U.S. Army, where teenage female army recruits tested positive equally with the male recruits, despite AIDS overwhelmingly affecting males at the time
- He came to document big discrepancies between HIV and AIDS statistics with regard to age, sex and race
- E.g. Younger women testing more positive for HIV than younger men
- He concluded that HIV is not only not a sexually transmitted disease — it’s not even infectious
- He asked the Centers for Disease Control and the Army AIDS research unit to show him where he got things wrong
- They confirmed that he was right about irregularities in the HIV/AIDS data
- They said racial differences can be explained on behavioural grounds
- He uncovered data that showed otherwise
- Said it was difficult to find a publisher on these matters nowadays, so he was thankful for his publisher
- Modern science has developed in 3 stages
- It started in 16th century with Galileo and Newton
- Early scientists doing it out of sheer curiosity, no conflicts of interest
- Through early 19th century, being a scientist became a career
- Used to be that the way you could advance was by doing good science
- Middle of 20th century was beginning of big change in science
- Radar, penicillin and atomic bomb after WWII changed things, put science at forefront
- Huge influx of research grants — more demand by would-be scientists — strains felt by mid 1970s
- Side effect was people were tempted to cut corners
- Publish or perish academic phenomenon
- Faked results — Gallo, and Korean cloning researcher as some examples
- Conflicts of interests have become very deleterious — researchers depend on patronage — need to know the right people — Margaret Heckler’s relationship with Gallo
- String theory clique — said it’s more a hope than anything else, and it’s never been tested, and has never made a useful prediction
Control of modern science done through:
- Purse strings
- Professional associations
- Difference between benevolent interests of vast majority of individual scientists and doctors and corporation’s requirement to maximize profit for shareholders
- Came from being very successful at finding cures for diseases — antibiotics
- Bad Pharma by Dr. Ben Goldacre in Britain, for the Guardian – said nothing good has come out of drug industry in past 20 years
- Drug companies only have to produce a drug that turns out better than placebo
- Statins, blood pressure reduction medicines examples of flawed research
- Global Warming, HIV/AIDS, Big Bang Theory, plate tectonics, Alzheimer’s
- Overwhelming govt funding, societal importance of science, centralized control
- Flawed Peer review process
- Importance of tier-one journals
- He recommended Spacedoc.com by Dr. Wayne Graveline – astronaut in American astronaut program
- Graveline took Lipitor, lost his memory, stopped taking it, regained his memory
- A discussion about blood pressure, and how modern medicine doesn’t factor age into their diagnosis of “high” blood pressure
