A correspondent in Britain sent me this e-mail:
“These jokers do a “99.8% accurate” hiv test:
plus a “confirmation” test of hiv
(Vidas HIV1/HIV2 Duo Quick, Bispot Immunocomb HIV1/HIV2, Determine HIV1&2)
Are they lying?!”
I wrote direct to the responsible (?) organization and received this enlightening response:
“Dear Dr Bauer,
Thank you for your enquiry.
Information regarding the tests and accuracy comes from the laboratory, we send our samples to the largest laboratory in the UK which has all the necessary accreditations.
If you require further information or have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to contact us.

It’s certainly reassuring that MediChecks relies on “the largest laboratory in the UK which has all the necessary accreditations”. I leave it to any interested others to look into further details of that lab, which I would guess is a commercial entity.

HIV/AIDS groupies and vigilantes like to assert — most recently in attempting to critique Patricia Goodson’s fine review of 30 years of failed HIV/AIDS theory (Questioning the HIV-AIDS hypothesis: 30 years of dissent) — that my interest in the possible existence of “Loch Ness Monsters” marks me as not to be listened to about anything, no matter the evidence I adduce. In response, some years ago I detailed what my “belief” about Nessies actually is (Henry Bauer and the Loch Ness monsters). Later that year I posted a Tribute to Robert Rines, who had carried out some of the most ingenious modern searches for the creatures (Science, media, and Loch Ness “monsters”).
Some of the most objective and compelling evidence for the existence of these creatures comes from sonar (“The Case for the Loch Ness Monster: The Scientific Evidence”, Journal of Scientific Exploration, 16(2): 225–246 ) and a few underwater photos taken simultaneously with sonar echoes, but such technical stuff is less subjectively convincing than “seeing with one’s own eyes”. For the latter, there is no substitute for the film taken by Tim Dinsdale in 1960. Recently Tim’s son Angus published a book, The Man Who Filmed Ness: Tim Dinsdale and the Enigma of Loch Ness, whose website contains a link that enables anyone to see the film itself on-line. Grainy as the film is, small as the Nessie’s back may seem at the range of a mile, you need to know only one thing to judge its significance:
The most determined debunkers, of whom there have been quite a few, have been able to suggest only one alternative explanation to this being a film of a large unidentified creature, of a species far larger than anything know to be in Loch Ness: That what seems to be a black hump, curved in cross-section and length, which submerges but continues to throw up a massive wake, is actually a boat with an outboard motor. Several magnified and computer-enhanced frames of the massive wake on my website show quite clearly that nothing material is visible above the wake after the hump has submerged.
If the most dedicated “skeptics” can offer no better explanation than this, then I feel justified in believing that Dinsdale filmed a genuine Nessie.
It reminds me of the Christian apologist, I think probably G. K. Chesterton or Malcolm Muggeridge, who remarked that the best argument for the truth of Christianity is the attempts by disbelievers to discredit it.
If there is one thing that the hump filmed by Dinsdale is certainly NOT, it’s a boat with an outboard motor.

That is to say, it cannot stand up in court if lawyers know what they are doing; and they can know what they are doing if they have the assistance of the Office of Medical and Scientific Justice (OMSJ).
Several earlier blog posts have reported successful outcomes as a result of OMSJ intervention. Now they have won a case that is likely to have far-reaching consequences.
The story began 4 years ago: “Sex, Lies, Vaccines and the Destruction of Sgt. David Gutierrez”. Finally something very good has come out of it: “OMSJ: Military Appeals Court Overturns HIV Conviction”.
Hear from the lead attorney about the significance of this victory: “Just like that, about 25 years of risking an ‘aggravated assault’ or similar charge for not informing a sexual partner that you’re ‘HIV positive’ are effectively over. On February 23, 2015, the highest U.S. military court judged the risk of contracting ‘HIV’ from sex as so low that it is no longer a serious crime not to tell sexual partners”.
The facts have been crystal clear for a long time, that HIV/AIDS theory is bankrupt and has done and continues to do enormous damage to innumerable people (The Case against HIV). But people cannot be forced to look at or admit facts — except (at least sometimes) in court, where HIV/AIDS experts can be cross-examined and their misguided beliefs exposed as such.
When the era of HIV/AIDS finally ends, enormous credit will be owing to the Office of Medical and Scientific Justice.

HIV Vaccine Will Be Ready By 2030, According To Bill Gates
No comment is needed, surely.
Just as well, because I wouldn’t know what to say or where to begin saying something.
Or maybe I could note that when I was still doing research, I would have hesitated to ask for funds on the grounds that I knew that I would get specific results after 15 years.
And further, I’m really quite curious to know what it is about the present state of knowledge that allows such an estimate to be made. It’s hard not to become jocular by referring to Nostradamus, extrasensory perception, and the like.
But then again, this is actually less into the future than the physicists’ estimates for a working nuclear fusion reactor.
