First and foremost: It needs to be emphasized that Peter Duesberg HAD to have known the truth about so-called "HIV" by sometime circa *1989* AT THE LATEST! In 2006, the Perth Group wrote a reply to the Harper's article written by Duesberg's long-time LOOPY sycophant Celia Farber
. In their reply to Farber's Harper's article, the Perth Group revealed an interesting detail about the history of the dissident movement. They wrote that the original solo paper by Eleni P-E on oxidation and AIDS
(the first such paper ever published on that topic, as indexed by PubMed/Medline):"...was eventually published in Medical Hypotheses in 1988.2 In the same year the paper was sent to Peter Duesberg. In a paper29 in which Peter Duesberg accepted that the "hallmark" of AIDS "is a defect in T-cells" and that the existence of "HIV" has been proven, he put forward a number of arguments against the "HIV" hypothesis of AIDS. He did not give an alternative explanation for AIDS. In 1989 paper Peter Duesberg wrote: "What Are the Causes of AIDS? I propose that AIDS is not a contagious syndrome caused by one conventional virus or microbe…Since AIDS is defined by new combinations of conventional diseases, it may be caused by new combinations of conventional pathogenic factors. The habitual administration of factor VIII or blood transfusions or of drugs, chronic promiscuous male homosexual activity that is associated with drugs, numerous acute parasitic infections, and chronic malnutrition, ?each for an average of 8 years?are factors that appear to provide biochemically more tangible and plausible basis for AIDS than an idle retrovirus".30
In a 1990 paper he wrote "The risk-AIDS hypothesis suggest that AIDS is caused primarily by non-infectious agents. These include psychoactive drugs, over-medication with antibiotics and above all AZT, a chain terminator of DNA synthesis administered to treat HIV infection since 1987".31"
In other words, it wasn't until Duesberg was sent the 1988 Medical Hypotheses paper by Eleni P-E that he started claiming (as she did in 1988) that nitrite inhalants, psychoactive drugs and "chronic promiscuous male homosexual activity...appear to provide biochemically more tangible and plausible basis for AIDS". All the while, of course, Duesberg conveniently (more likely purposefully) deleted all mention of the isolation problems with so-called "HIV" that Eleni detailed in HER 1988 paper, and he also interestingly failed to clarify the "chronic promiscuous male homosexual activity" as exposure to *SPERM* which Eleni discussed in great analytical detail in her 1988 paper.
Again, it is fairly apparent that Duesberg KNEW THE TRUTH about "HIV" as far back as 1988, yet he continues to this day to make his short-sighted and thoroughly debunked assertions about HIV's existence and it's role as a "latent, passenger virus"! Just think about all the undeniable harm Duesberg and his debunked hypothesis have done in almost three DECADES!!
In what is now a familiar pattern with her, diehard Duesberg dittohead Celia Farber, writing on 14 April 2010 in yet another blog post which has since been deleted, attempted to gain sympathy for Peter Duesberg by revealing that, apparently since November of 2009, Duesberg has been "under investigation" by the University of California at Berkeley for alleged, potential "misconduct" surrounding a paper he and fellow "HIV is a passenger virus" theorists submitted to the Journal Medical Hypotheses. Duesberg et al.'s paper was subsequently withdrawn, ostensibly because “prominent AIDS researchers” had contacted the Journal's publisher Elsevier and demanded the paper’s withdrawal, purportedly under the pretext that the paper ‘could potentially be damaging to global public health.’
Trying to drum up support for himself, Duesberg wrote on a third-party blog on 12th April: "Yes, the allegations are that 'the ideas (expressed in the now withdrawn Medical Hypotheses paper) are false, … un-supported by evidence, and dangerous'" and then he belly-ached that he had "not received evidence from UCB or elsewhere to support these allegations." This is a blatant LIE. Duesberg had INDEED received evidence which supports the notion that his ideas expressed in his withdrawn Medical Hypotheses paper are "unsupported by evidence", but such evidence was presented to him BY A FELLOW DISSIDENT.
In this analysis
, which Duesberg ACKNOWLEDGED he's seen, a Perth Group supporter had pointed up the defects of Duesberg et al.'s criticism of the Chigwedere et al paper. Duesberg circulated this rebuttal
nominally drawn by a third party. However, as Anthony Brink pointed out months ago, this rebuttal seems clearly co-written
by discredited Rethinking AIDS Grand poobah and eternal dipshit David Crowe: "it's marked all over with his characteristically vapid style of verbose argumentation, his favorite limp turns of phrase, his anodyne rhetorical tricks and generally his fingerprint stupidity and dishonesty". Jensen responded by asking Duesberg some questions
which, as usual went unanswered. Duesberg, the eternal hypocrite and CHICKEN SHIT, seems to have a habit of developing hearing problems whenever asked hard questions. Instead of addressing the issues that Jensen raised, Duesberg challenged Jensen to write his own critique of the Chigwedere et al. paper, and Jensen obliged here
Suffice it to say, Duesberg possesses a profound level of chutzpah. For years, he has hypocritically exhibited precisely the same behavior in his dealings with (or lack thereof) the Perth Group that he is constantly lamenting with respect to the AIDS industry's dealings (or lack thereof) with him. In 2009, Duesberg's partisans in the Rethinking AIDS group, the two dipshit Davids- Dipshit David #1: RA Grand poobah David Crowe, and Dipshit David #2: Rasnick, one of Duesberg's co-authors of the withdrawn paper- both conspired
to keep the issue of the lack of proof of "HIV" off the agenda for their "RA 2009" conference which proved to be a huge FLOP. Any literate, astute AIDS dissident with half a brain in his or her head knows that the lack of proof of purification of "HIV" is the central issue facing dissidents, and it's the Achilles heel of the AIDS industry.
It's high time that hypocrite and chicken shit Duesberg either "man-up", stop lying and ducking the issue of "HIV's" non-isolation, or retire from the dissident movement, his tail forever between his legs for repeatedly refusing to face facts about his stance on this crucial issue.
Farber and other diehard Duesberg cultists who are angry at the Perth Group for disassociating from the Rethinking AIDS group fail to realize that Duesberg has no one but himself to blame for this civil war that now exists between the two main factions of the AIDS dissident movement. The "virus challenge" originally issued by Continuum Magazine and the Perth Group in the mid 1990's was NEVER meant to be directed at Peter Duesberg. No one was forcing HIM to step forward and claim the reward for the missing virus. However, in an apparent and woefully inadequate effort to defend his life's work in the failed field of retrovirology, it was DUESBERG HIMSELF who purposefully CHOSE to submit a claim, thereby compelling the Perth Group to engage in a debate with HIM on the topic of the purported "isolation" of "HIV". However, obviously the true targets of the Continuum "virus challenge" campaign were orthodox "HIV" researchers like Gallo, Montagnier, Fauci, et al and NOT Duesberg. Only Duesberg knows his real motivations for trying to claim the "missing virus" reward. In doing so, Duesberg was either incredibly STUPID or he WANTED to divide the dissident movement.
If it was the latter, Duesberg certainly got his wish...
