Life Is Cheap For Experimental Drug Trials Victims : “Why Georgia?”

Mad scientists, satanic virologists, human traffickers flock to the new "happy hunting ground"  

NEW EASTERN OUTLOOK
By Henry Kamens
05/06/2015

What we have heard rumoured, or more than rumoured, is now pretty much official. The attitude of Georgia’s Western “friends” to the country has been laid bare by the announcement that the Republic of Georgia is fast becoming the testing ground for a wide range of new vaccines and questionable treatments.


Is there something intrinsically superior about the Georgian people, their European DNA, who would provide the testers with important scientific data? Or is it more likely that no one wants to risk treating their own nationals with these experimental medicines, but no one minds murdering a few Georgians in the name of better health in the West?

Anti-vivisectionists, those against operating and experimenting on animals, will doubtless applaud this move. “Better than testing on defenseless animals”, they will say. 


Things are only tested on animals because no one knows if they are safe for humans. Now Georgians are being treated like those animals, and their government is doing nothing about it – indeed, abusing its own people is very probably a price imposed upon the Georgian government for continuing to receive Western support.

What We Know 

On April 22 a company called Gilead officially announced that it was using Georgia as a free-drug test lab for hepatitis C elimination. As reported by Reuters,

“Gilead Sciences is seeking to convince governments and multilateral agencies worldwide that hepatitis C can be eliminated with a demonstration project in Georgia offering free drugs to all those who need them.

“The unprecedented program will make the Caucasian country a testbed for uprooting the liver-destroying disease, using Gilead’s highly effective but costly pill Sovaldi, plus its newer product Harvoni once approved.

“Georgia has the world’s third highest prevalence of hepatitis C, after Egypt and Mongolia, with nearly 7 percent of adults carrying the virus. It also has a wide range of viral variations and different types of patients.”

If Georgia really has such a hepatitis C prevalence it might be reasonable to test the drug there. Indeed, public health experts closer to the actual figures claim that the prevalence of various blood, instrument and sexually transmitted viruses is even higher, with even as many as 25 percent of the adult population infected. This is generally ascribed to a range of factors, including a lack of marketing of prevention methods, a blood bank system based on paid and replacement donors, which is a high risk group for donations, and a low level of instrument sterilization in hospitals, dental offices and needle sharing.

Intravenous drug use and the selling of tainted blood based on paid and replacement donations are also major factor in the spread of hepatitis C and other TTIs, transfusion transmitted viruses. Is it likely that a country which was run for years by the biggest hard drug dealer in the region, the former government, was ever going to enact drug safety measures or give more than lip service to public health?

Blood banks also failed to use the most effective methods of testing for blood transmitted virus as a cost saving measure, opting for inexpensive rapid tests that are not to an acceptable standard of accuracy. Georgia’s blood donation system is indeed poor and inherently dangerous. Due to the window periods of blood not demonstrating antibodies to a virus for up to 45 to 60 days after a person may have been infected, they can pass on a virus without it being testable, thus compounding the problem.

All of this is known and addressed in other countries. Are we to believe this cannot be done in Georgia? We are told that Georgian doctors lack the knowledge and training to devise and operate safe blood banking and sterilisation systems. Is it not possible for this training to be imported to Georgia, as it is to other countries, or for Georgian doctors to obtain this training in other countries?

If this really is impossible, Georgians should be told why, but no one has ever done this. Indeed, Georgian doctors are notoriously reluctant to talk about their profession too closely, for one simple reason: it would damage their personal and professional reputations irretrievably if they had to admit what they really know, and the compromises they have had to make to be a part of it.

What We Are Not Supposed To Know

Another important factor in the spread of disease in Georgia has been the country’s willingness to make itself available for any Western military scheme, however dubious. It has been quite happy for the US, in particular, to do all kinds of things on its territory which it would never get away with at home, which obviously encourages Western countries to think that Georgians are just there to be used, and do not have the human dignity of others.

Georgia has well-documented connections with US-sponsored bio weapons programmes. Those who have been part of these have drawn a direct connection between the announcement of new drug testing and Georgia being willing to turn a blind eye to the health consequences of various military projects. It is sometimes argued that Georgians make themselves vulnerable to these by being prepared to accept a low level of informed consent, being pressured to vaccinate, even parents who had suffered the childhood diseases.

But it is doctors who should inform patients about what that is, and make sure their patients can give appropriate levels of consent. It is inconceivable that Georgia’s medics do not know that people are being willfully deprived of the opportunity to give this by not being given the necessary information.

This was the case in one programme where the US Department of Defense was funding 75,000 emergency vaccinations in response to a measles outbreak in Georgia a few years ago. My adopted daughter suffered from measles and was hospitalized but still the hospital insist that she be vaccinated, and the mother [and me at 60 years of age]. Both of us refused after learning this was donated by the US Department of Defense and the motivation was highly suspect.

For this is hardly the first case. Others have gone so far as to claim that Georgians are being used as white rats, and what is going on now is but the tip of the iceberg of human experimentation programmes which would make the notorious Nazi Dr. Josef Mengele marvel.

Such experiments have been going on for years, conducted under various foreign-funded initiatives described as something else – “public health improvement”, “HIV-AIDS reduction” – “TB reduction”. As even the official figures show, these overseas aid programmes have had precious little effect on the prevalence of the diseases they were supposed to combat, but have succeeded in introducing new drugs which have not been approved elsewhere, with the recipients not being told anything significant about them.

What No One Would Want To Know

These experiments have not [necessarily] taken place in actual labs but by using livestock and human populations, in which such infections can be made to evolve naturally and are suitable for testing new generation of vaccines and alternatives to antibiotics.

In all likelihood, this practice extends to the Georgian population, based on how new strains of flue and measles have inflicted the population in the last few years. He says that it is more than confidence that some of the vaccines donated by the United States Military to the Georgian Ministry of Health were ones delivered under questionable circumstances. Silverman also claims that the US was keeping a secret stash of smallpox in Georgia for a rainy day, as part of a so-called research programme; it was only because of media attention was this removed and covertly flown out of the country by the US military.

Some years ago US defence contractor Bechtel National signed a deal with the Georgian Technology Management Company (TMC) on biological non-proliferation, a strange thing to do when you are allegedly involved in purely civilian projects. It established a lab in Georgia which started out as a bio agent storage site but expanded into a network of labs and vaccine distribution manufacturing throughout Georgia and Ukraine which had military applications.

Some of these labs serve a double purpose and have become military command and control centres, whilst still operating under the umbrella of civilian research devoted to human and animal health, which have produced the chemical and bio weapons which find their way into the hands of US-inserted “fighters for democracy” who appear on the news every day murdering, pillaging and displacing “We The People.”

Staff working at the Tbilisi lab confirms the Lugar Public Health Reference Lab is still managed by the US Department of Defense. There is also a lab near Kobuleti working on plant warfare; however, that one is managed by the UK Ministry of Defence and does not pose an immediate public health risk.

Human Lab Rats – Exploiting The World’s Poor For Clinical Trials 

Georgia might argue that other “developing countries” have the same problems. Georgia is maybe even LESS protected by law and legislation against the same sort of evils afflicting Argentina. Big pharmaceutical companies are increasingly outsourcing clinical trials to such developing countries to create new medicines.

By taking advantage of relaxed regulation, uneducated populations, it is the world’s poorest who are paying with their lives. The following is an excellent video and very informative and shows that drug companies want to find populations with similar characteristics to European in order to do clinical trials in record time and for low costs, regardless of the human cost.

Georgia appears to be one of the few places close to Europe where such things happen on a massive scale, thanks to many of the hospitals and clinics being owned by drug companies under a privatization process. It can now make a virtue out of allowing its Western darlings to get away with anything for the sake of cooperation and corporate profits. This is “integration”, they say – as in Association Agreements. The few Georgians who know about all this however have other words for it, MURDER.

Take for example a middle aged woman, Marina, personally known to the author, who was being treated in the Abastumani TB clinic not far from the Turkish border three years ago. She wrote a letter to a friend, in Georgian and English, about the experimental drugs from EU companies which had been used on her, without her knowing that they were unapproved and dangerous.

Marina is now dead, as many of the other patients in that clinic who were treated with her at the time. Such a death rate is, to say the least, unusual, even in TB clinics in the poorest and most medically backward countries. But we may never know the truth and why other TB treatments were not used, including DOTs, Direct Observed Treatment.

Perhaps this helps explain Georgia’s lost of population, as of November 5, 2014, the population of Georgia, excluding the former territories of South Ossetia and Abkhazia, amounted to 3.729,635 people, which is 14.7 percent less (641 of 900) than the census results of 2002 (4.371,535).

The zero tolerance crime policy and locking up a high percentage of the Georgian population, on trumped up changes, under the regime of now deposed president Mikhail Saakashvili worked well. Many of the patients ended their prison terms and were immediately sent to the Abastumani TB clinic for residential treatment—a death sentence. This policy and terrible prisons provided more than an ample supply of patients with resistant forms of TB. But who cares about the deaths of ex cons and those from the lower echelons of society?

In 1997 then-US President Bill Clinton apologised for the Tuskegee Experiment; it was oflficallya called the “Tuskegee Study of Untreated Syphilis in the Negro Male.” in which African-Americans had been injected with syphilis to see how it affected them, causing illnesses and repeat infections among participants and their wives, whilst being told they were receiving free government health care. That experiment had lasted for many years, simply because no one had wanted to believe such things could be happening. It is everyone’s duty to ensure that the Guardians of Democracy do not treat the citizens of any other country the same way they treated their own for so long, just because their own public will no longer allow them to do so.

WAYNE MADSEN : Nothing Says Warrantless Eavesdropping More Than Keeping Track Of People Who Say "Fucking" On The Phone

Time to go back to smoke signals - or church    

WAYNE MADSEN REPORT
By Wayne Madsen
05/06/2015

Perhaps no other document released as part of Edward Snowden's tranche of classified files says more about the National Security Agency's and its foreign partners trawling phone conversations without either an intelligence or criminally-related predicate more than a UK SECRET STRAP 1 document, dated December 7, 2009, on the speech-to-text (STT) system, code named BYBLOS by NSA. 


BYBLOS is also deployed at Britain's Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) with a British enhancement called GALE.

The BYBLOS system was pioneered for NSA by the firm BBN Technologies of Boston and refined for GCHQ's use by both BBN and Cambridge University. BBN is owned by Raytheon. Before it was bought by Raytheon in 2009, BBN Technologies Solutions LLC, as it was then known, received seed capital from IN-Q-TEL, the Central Intelligence Agency's venture capital firm. 


The SECRET STRAP 1 document also states that before NSA used BYBLOS it relied on a version of the now-commercially available DRAGON software for STT use. NSA also initially used a voice search tool developed commercially by Nexidia, Inc., which was called NEXminer. 

However, while DRAGON and NEXminer were useful against English- and Spanish-speaking targets, they were useless against what NSA described as "less-commonly-taught languages and dialects found in the Middle East." These languages include Arabic. Pashto, and Farsi. Other high-priority languages for speech-to-text conversion are Mandarin Chinese, Korean, and Russian.




An improved BYBLOS system, code named RHINEHART apparently includes improvements in areas of Human Language Technology (HLT) analysis beyond STT, including gender, speaker, phonetic, and dialect recognition, as well as anomaly and speech activity detection. Special source systems that were planned to interface with BYBLOS/RHINEHART are code-named WISPYKNIT and VICTORYUNIFORM. These special sources systems may include a voice recognition-biometrics interface.


The GCHQ document states that GCHQ has developed a database of a special regional UK corpus of English known as NIRAD, or Northern Irish accented speech. There is also a reference to BYBLOS being able to track phone numbers spoken over the phone by "Caribbean drug runners." The GCHQ document was released by the Pierre Omidyar-financed "Intercept" with an entire page on BYBLOS error rates redacted by the so-called "independent" media operation.



Meet up at a Belfast pub and know that GCHQ and NSA have tracked your mobile calls to arrange for the rendezvous. But, it's all in the name of "national security." 

However, it is a table showing the frequency of spoken word intercepts by GCHQ of Northern Ireland communications that reveals that GCHQ and its NSA partners are obviously monitoring nothing more than Northern Irish residents making plans to meet up at their local pubs.




As seen from the SECRET table, the word "fucking" has a large 204 frequency count along with "yeah," "hello," "right," and "know." So, if you are ever in Belfast and phone a guy named Craic about going to the pub Friday to get meet Sean and get drunk but you only have twenty quid to spend on drinking until at least twelve o'clock until starting a new fucking job Monday, be assured that GCHQ and NSA are listening in and recording everything you say. 


No joking! And it is a big nightmare!

Perhaps NSA has had to establish its "Coping with Information Overload office" within its R6 Research Directorate because its systems are recording too many mobile calls about Craicand Sean getting drunk during marathon drinking binges at pubs in Belfast and Derry.

The best solution for NSA is to "end it, don't mend it."

Economic Disinformation Keeps Financial Markets Up

Jobs "reports" issued by the Obama criminals and their MSM lackeys nothing but a pack of lies  

GLOBAL RESEARCH
By Dr. Paul Craig Roberts
05/09/2015

May 8. Today’s payroll jobs report is more of the same. The Bureau of Labor Statistics claims that 223,000 new jobs were created in April. Let’s accept the claim and see where the jobs are.


Specialty trade contractors are credited with 41,000 jobs equally split between residential and nonresidential. I believe these are home and building repairs and remodelling.


Obama believes Americans are stupid -
and he is right
The rest of the jobs, 182,000, are in domestic services.

Despite store closings and weak retail sales, 12,000 people were hired in retail trade.

Despite negative first quarter GDP growth, 62,000 people were hired in professional and business services, 67% of which are in administrative and waste services.

Health care and social assistance accounted for 55,600 jobs of which ambulatory health care services, hospitals, and social assistance accounted for 85% of the jobs.


Waitresses and bartenders account for 26,000 jobs, and government employed 10,000 new workers.

There are no jobs in manufacturing.

Mining, timber, oil and gas extraction lost jobs.

Temporary help services (16,100 jobs) offered 3.7 times more jobs than law, accounting architecture, and engineering combined (4,500 jobs).




As I have pointed out for a number of years, according to the payroll jobs reports, the complexion of the US labor force is that of a Third World country. Most of the jobs created are lowly paid domestic services.

The well paying high productivity, high value-added jobs have been offshored and given to foreigners who work for less. This fact, more than the reduction in marginal income tax rates, is the reason for the rising inequality in the distribution of income and wealth.




Offshoring middle class jobs raises corporate profits and, thereby, the incomes of corporate owners (shareholders) and executives. But it reduces the incomes of the majority of the population who are forced into either lowly paid and part time jobs or unemployment.

The extraordinary decline in the labor force participation rate indicates shrinking opportunities for the American labor force. No economist should ever have accepted the claim that the economy was in recovery while participation in the labor force was declining.


Prison system the largest industry in the State of California

The officially documented decline in the labor force participation rate casts additional doubt on the claimed increases in payroll jobs. If jobs are growing, the labor force participation rate should not be declining.

Having looked at the actual details of the payroll jobs report, which are seldom if ever reported in the financial media, let’s look at what else goes unreported in the media.

The government’s economic statistical agencies are under pressure not to roil the financial markets. Consequently, initial reports, which are always the headline reports, are as close as possible to the “consensus forecast” prepared by economists in the financial sector, whose jobs are to maintain a good atmosphere for financial instruments.


Obama owned and operated "mainstream media" barfs 
out bogus numbers without batting an eye
This practice results in optimistic advanced estimates and first estimates. 

The real reporting comes later in revisions. For example, today the headline was 223,000 new jobs, recovery on track, stock market up. What was not reported by the media is that the prior month’s (March) payroll jobs growth was cut to 85,000 jobs, substantially below population growth.

The same thing happens with the reporting of GDP growth. 


The first quarter GDP advanced estimate was kept in positive territory with a 0.2%–two-tenths of one percent–growth. 

When the revisions arrive, which we already know will be negative GDP growth due to the trade figure, they will not receive the same attention.

There are many additional problems with the economic reporting. I have written about a number of them in past reports. Here I will provide one more example. According to the payroll jobs report oil and gas extraction lost 3,300 jobs in April. This low number is inconsistent with what we know about layoffs from fracking operations. According to Challenger Gray, a private firm that tracks job cuts announced by corporations, in April 20,675 jobs were lost as a result of falling oil prices. That is more than six times the loss reported by the payroll jobs report.




Challenger Gray reports that during the first four months of this year, corporations have announced 201,796 job cuts. Obviously, corporations are not creating new jobs. That is why the BLS looks to waitresses, bartenders, remodeling contractors, government, and social services for employment growth.

Jobs offshoring has shriveled the employment opportunities for Americans. These shriveled opportunities are largely responsible for stagnation and decline in real median family incomes, for the falling labor force participation rate, for the rising inequality in the income and wealth distribution, and for student loans that cannot be repaid from the lowly paid jobs available. Corporations and Wall Street in pursuit of short-term profits have given the economy away. Much of the former US economy now belongs to China and India. Corporate executives and shareholders got rich off of this give-away.

Syria, Iraq Girls Shipped Naked After Being Sold At ISIL Slave Bazaars

Only the CIA could come up with this garbage, scraping the bottom of the "terror" barrel in an attempt to keep their "ISIS" creation alive and scaring the crap out of idiot Americans and credulous Western fools  

ABNA
05/08/2015

Ahlul Bayt News Agency

The United Nations says the Takfiri ISIL terrorist group has been offering Syrian and Iraqi girls for sale by putting them on show “stripped naked” in “slave bazaars.” 


Special Representative of the UN Secretary General on Sexual Violence in Conflict Zainab Bangura made the harrowing revelation on Thursday while briefing journalists on her “scoping mission” to Syria, Iraq and some other countries in the region in April. 

“Girls are literally being stripped naked and examined in slave bazaars” of the ISIL, Bangura said, adding that the girls were “categorized and shipped naked off to Dohuk (Province) or Mosul or other locations to be distributed among ISIL leadership” and militants. 


Bangura visited Syria, Iraq, Turkey, Lebanon and Jordan from April 16 to 29 and interviewed girls and women who had escaped ISIL captivity and survived sexual violence. 


CIA director John Brennan diddles himself while thinking
up new "ISIS" atrocities
“Women and girls are at risk and under assault at every point of their lives,” Bangura said, stressing that they are in danger at “every step of the way… in the midst of active conflict, in areas under control of armed actors, at check-points and border crossings, and in detention facilities.” The UN special representative went on to say that the Takfiri group utilizes sexual violence as a “tactic” to humiliate and demoralize those who are against the ISIL and to punish and displace dissenters. 


“ISIL have institutionalized sexual violence and the brutalization of women as a central aspect of their ideology and operations, using it as a tactic of terrorism to advance their key strategic objectives,” she said. 


Only goats and dogs need fear "CIA/ISIS" beastie boys
Elaborating on the motives of the Takfiri group for advancing sexual violence, the UN official further said that ISIL uses the tactic to extract information for intelligence purposes and to dismantle social, familial and community structures. 

Giving an example of the brutalities of the ISIL group against the girls and women, she noted that a certain girl was forced to marry Takfiri terrorists 20 times and was forced to undergo surgery to regain her virginity after each marriage. 


Bangura called on the UN Security Council to take measures to counter such crimes, expressing concerns about the children born of rape. She also said that such children create “a generation of stateless children” who could provide fertile ground for future extremism. 


Where are PETA when you need them?

The ISIL militants have been accused of committing gross human rights violations and war crimes in Syria and Iraq, including rape, summary executions, mass kidnappings, and massacres.
