UNDER OUR SKIN Director Andy Abrahams Wilson interviews Kris Newby, author of “Bitten: The Secret History of Lyme Disease and Biological Weapons.” May 1, 2019

LYME & BIOWEAPONS: CONSPIRACY THEORY NO MORE
Interview with Kris Newby, Author of “Bitten”
Kris Newby, science writer and Senior Producer of UNDER OUR SKIN, says she took five years on her new book because
“I wanted to make sure the evidence was rock solid.”
The result of her efforts is a captivating account of Lyme discoverer Willy Burgdorfer’s work for the U.S. biological warfare program.
“Willy was mixing pathogens in ticks,” Kris explains, and “ticks were part of the bioweapons program form the very beginning, after WWII.”
Kris paints Willy as an enigmatic, maybe tragic, figure and immigrant from Switzerland caught-up in something big that got out of control.
“I think he suspected that the whole Lyme outbreak was a bioweapons accident…but he was afraid to speak out,” Kris says. “He didn’t so much discover Lyme disease as recognized it from his 20+ years working for the bioweapons program.”
Also check out video outtakes from our 2006 interview with Willy Burgdorfer.
“Bitten: The Secret History of Lyme Disease and Biological Weapons” will be released by Harper Collins publishing house on May 14th. Pre-order “Bitten” on Amazon now!

For those just tuning in, here’s a fantastic article to catch you up to speed:  https://www.lymedisease.org/lymepolicywonk-questioning-governments-role-lyme-disease-make-conspiracy-theorist/  Excerpt:

. . .I am a biologist, so that’s where I started working on ticks and mosquitoes—how to produce a lot of them. Drop them out of airplanes. Everything was very hush-hush, very secret. I’m still leery talking about it, because I think they might put me in jail because I’m delivering secrets. [Laughs.] It was a crazy time.

In PJ Langhoff’s book, “God Science: The Secret World of Rampant Genetics, Hidden Illness, and Biotech Profiteering,” she details how as a kid in Illinois, she and her siblings heard a radio announcer state that researchers from a nearby facility were going to drop items from an airplane and that people were to leave these items alone and let the researchers collect them.  Shortly after, every kid in the neighborhood was out hunting.  PJ first found a boring piece of cloth which she left, but after that found an interesting capsule that had broken open upon impact.  Funny looking bugs were crawling out of it. Bugs she didn’t recognize. She developed a perfect bullseye rash, went to doctor after doctor who had no idea what it was, went from a straight-A student to a struggling student, and the rest is history with her struggling with chronic/persistent symptoms ever since.  I highly recommend her book.  FYI:  Years later she attempted to obtain the “official” information on this tick drop and it was scrubbed from existence yet all her siblings remember it as if it was yesterday.

 

pps.dtic.mil/dtic/tr/fulltext/u2/660311.pdf  In this 1967 U.S. Army report, we find starting on page 600, ticks that were experimentally infected with various pathogens.  For instance, on page 301 that Boophilus australis was experimentally infected with murine typhus rickettsia.  Dermacentor albopiotuswith spotted fever, Dermacentor andersoni with typhus rickettsiae, and so on and so forth.

And I would be amiss to to mention all the work Dr. Garth Nicolson has done on Mycoplasma, which he wrote about in his book, “Project Day Lily.”  https://madisonarealymesupportgroup.com/2015/08/12/connecting-dots-mycoplasma/  Excerpt:

90% of evaluated ALS patients had Mycoplasma. 100% of ALS patients with Gulf War Syndrome had Mycoplasma and nearly all of those were specifically the weaponized M. fermentans incognitus.

*One of the hallmark symptoms of Mycoplasma is fatigue*

And the bad news for us is that Nicholson’s experience has found Mycoplasma to be the number one Lyme coinfection, and similar to other coinfections can be supposedly cleared for years only to reappear when conditions are right.

As to the “Swiss Agent” Newby refers to in the video:  https://madisonarealymesupportgroup.com/2016/10/12/willy-speaks-from-the-grave-rickettsia-helvetica/  Excerpt:

What makes this crucial for MSIDS patients is his fascination and concern with Rickettsia helvetica, something he coined, “Swiss Agent.” The article poses an idea that doctors might be mistaking this infection for Lyme or that this agent could also be another co-infection complicating and confusing cases.

Rickettsia helvetica is known predominantly in Europe and Asia as relatively rare but linked to sudden deaths from heart disease. Other symptoms include facial palsy, deafness, meningitis, chronic muscle weakness, temporary paralysis, debilitating fatigue, severe headaches, and sarcoidosis.

There is no test in the U.S. for Rickettsia helvetica.

 

And the information inside this obituary of Roger Breeze, head of the high containment laboratory at Plum Island from 1987 to 1995 is quite illuminating:  https://www.telegraph.co.uk/obituaries/2016/09/29/roger-breeze-expert-in-animal-diseases–obituary/  Excerpt:

Bioterrorism,” he warned a food conference in 2001, “is a cheap alternative to nuclear war and, chances are, that is how the United States would be attacked…..

“People have no idea what’s out there,” he told an interviewer in 1995. “It’s all so goddamn crazy. There’s something called mad cow disease in England that we’re keeping a close eye on. We’ve got ostriches from Namibia that could be carrying ticks with Congo Crimean haemorrhagic fever. We’ve got Vietnamese potbellied pigs, alpacas and llamas, you name it.”

At Plum Island, America’s equivalent of Britain’s Pirbright Institute, a centre of research into livestock diseases, Breeze supervised a major overhaul of laboratory facilities and initiated research programmes into the genomic basis of disease pathogenesis, and the development of genetically-engineered vaccines and techniques known as PCR diagnostics (in which copies of short sections of DNA are developed or “amplified” from a very small sample of genetic material, enabling specific genes to be detected or measured quickly).

Anyone besides me getting the feeling that this very well may be a reason we aren’t getting better?
