The USDOJ demonstration in Washington, DC, in front of the U.S. Department of Justice building, was a great achievement. The group successfully delivered the criminal charge sheets to 20 foreign embassies and over ten elected U.S representatives and senators. The goal being to reveal U.S. government fraud involving Lyme disease, Gulf War Illness, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, Fibromyalgia, and Autism.
DHHS, in its attempt to marginalize certain diseases, has had a history of creating false criteria. We have clearly seen this with ME and Lyme. In addition, they have attempted to thwart appropriate funding for research. This has been apparent with ME, which has been grossly underfunded. NIH has taken funding meant for serious biomedical research, and funneled it for use in scientifically invalid psychological/psychosomatic research. This has caused 30 years of great harm to ME patients. Similarly, Lyme patients have been victimized and suffer from inadequate diagnostic criteria. They have become the victims of medical research fraud perpetrated by a CDC officer. The USDOJ group calls on the Department of Justice to prosecute the perpetrators of the “crymes” to their fullest extent.
