Bringing an end to public rumors and speculations as to the identity of the wantonly promiscuous HIV-infected”superstar” actor who is said to favor sex with prostitutes and porn stars, as well as transsexuals, Charlie Sheen admitted on NBC’s “Today” this morning that he has HIV.

Frazier Moore reports for the AP that Sheen said he tested positive for the virus that causes AIDS about four years ago. But when asked by “Today” co-host Matt Lauer if he had transmitted the disease to others, he declared, “Impossible. Impossible.”

He said one reason for going public with his condition was to put a stop to shakedowns from prostitutes and others who threatened to out him. He said he had paid “enough to bring it into the millions” – perhaps as much as $10 million – to buy their silence and now was seeking to “put a stop to this barrage of attacks and sub-truths.”

He said one prostitute took a photo of the HIV-related drugs in his medicine cabinet and threatened to sell it to the tabloids.

Lauer asked Sheen if he’s still “paying these people.” Sheen replied, “Not after today I’m not.”

Sheen said that by going public, he hopes to reduce the stigma still felt by some diagnosed with HIV: “I have a responsibility now to better myself and to help a lot of other people. And hopefully with what we’re doing today, others may come forward and say, ‘Thanks, Charlie, for kicking the door open.'”

The disclosure was only the latest chapter in Sheen’s headline-seizing behavior.

He once revealed that he had spent more than $50,000 as a client of “Hollywood Madam” Heidi Fleiss’ prostitution ring. In 2011, Sheen’s drug and alcohol use led to his being fired from CBS’ “Two and a Half Men” — which made him one of TV’s highest-paid actors and at its peak was TV’s most-watched sitcom — after an explosive meltdown that included calling the show’s producer “a contaminated little maggot.”

Sheen has been married and divorced three times — to model Donna Peele, actress Denise Richards with whom he has two daughters, and obscure actress and real estate investor Brooke Mueller, with whom he has two sons.

A FOTM reader remarked that HIV is “just a chronic medical condition” and should not have a “stigma” attached. This is my response:

“Just a chronic medical condition”?

You make HIV, the precursor to AIDS, sound like a seasonal allergy to pollen, also “a chronic medical condition”. The stigma attached to HIV/AIDS is well-deserved because HIV infection is:

  1. Serious business: It means the body’s entire immune system is now compromised, which means T-cells — the body’s natural immune-fighters — no longer work as they are designed by our Creator.
  2. A transmitted disease, usually via sexual intercourse. If the U.S. were a sane rational country, people with a transmissible disease would be monitored and knowingly transmitting such diseases would be a crime.

There are 3 stages of HIV infection. Here’s the CDC’s description of stage one, Acute HIV Infection Stage:

Within 2-4 weeks after HIV infection, many, but not all, people develop flu-like symptoms, often described as “the worst flu ever.” Symptoms can include fever, swollen glands, sore throat, rash, muscle and joint aches and pains, and headache. This is called “acute retroviral syndrome” (ARS) or “primary HIV infection,” and it’s the body’s natural response to the HIV infection. During this early period of infection, large amounts of virus are being produced in your body. The virus uses CD4 count to replicate and destroys them in the process. Because of this, your CD4 cells can fall rapidly. Eventually your immune response will begin to bring the level of virus in your body back down to a level called a viral set point, which is a relatively stable level of virus in your body. At this point, your CD4 count begins to increase, but it may not return to pre-infection levels. It may be particularly beneficial to your health to begin ART during this stage. During the acute HIV infection stage, you are at high risk of transmitting HIV to your sexual or drug using partners because the levels of HIV in your blood stream are very high. For this reason, it is very important to take steps to reduce your risk of transmission.

Note: CD4 refers to the glycoprotein found on the surface of our body’s immune cells such as T helper cells, monocytes, macrophages, and dendritic cells.

Here are the physical changes to the body of the HIV-infected:

1. Body Fat Changes: Some medications taken to control HIV cause changes in the way your body produces, uses, and stores fat. These changes are called lipodystrophy. This condition causes you to gain or lose fat in particular parts of your body.

You can get extra fat in the following places: abdomen, neck, breasts (both men and women), face. In addition, you can also develop small deposits of fat, called lipomas, elsewhere on your body. Other changes can occur when the fat under your skin (called subcutaneous fat) is lost. This can occur in your face, arms, legs, buttocks. It is important to note that these changes in the way your body handles fat can also coincide with changes in cholesterol, an increase in triglycerides, increases in blood sugar, and lowered sensitivity to insulin, which may lead to diabetes.

2. Wasting Syndrome: The involuntary loss of more than 10% of your body weight, in addition to more than 30 days of either diarrhea or weakness and fever. Wasting refers to a loss of muscle mass, although part of the weight loss may also be due to loss of fat. HIV-associated wasting syndrome is considered an AIDS-defining condition. While this is often a sign of late stage disease, wasting syndrome can be treated by proper diet, medications to stimulate appetite, medications to control diarrhea, hormonal therapy to build muscle.

The body changes of an HIV-infected person would explain why Charlie Sheen, only 50 years old and even with cosmetic help like makeup and hair dye, looks so dreadful — changes to his appearance that are noticeable beginning about 2-3 years ago.

To no one’s surprise, at least six women have lawyered up in the last 24 hours and plan to sue Charlie Sheen for intentional infliction of emotional distress, fraud, sexual battery … and more are on the way. A prominent Los Angeles lawyer tells TMZ, the 6 women contacted him Monday, and he has appointments with 4 more today.

The women claim they had both protected and unprotected sex with Sheen, as recently as last month, and he did not disclose his HIV status.

A source directly connected with Sheen says in the last 2 years, Sheen has had at least 200 partners, so the number of women who either will sue or plan to sue will almost certainly grow exponentially.

Reportedly, Sheen was diagnosed with HIV 4 years ago. (TMZ)

1961 law aims for elimination of U.S. military and all civilian arms

If you think the New World Order and a global government are relatively recent ideas that began with Bush the Elder, George H. W. Bush, think again.

Those ideas can be traced back at least to the Kennedy Administration, but under a different terminology — the Arms Control and Disarmament Act of 1961, which began as H.R. 9118. The bill was passed by both houses of Congress and, on September 26, 1961, was signed into law, becoming 22 U.S.C. § 2551.

This is how radical the Arms Control and Disarmament Act is. (Click here for the Act in PDF.)

On page 1, the Act declares that “An ultimate goal of the United States is a world which is free from the scourge of war and the dangers and burdens of armaments; in which the use of force has been subordinated to the rule of law….”

The purpose of the Act is “to provide impetus toward this goal by creating a new agency of peace to deal with the problem of reduction and control of armaments looking toward ultimate world disarmament.”

Here’s a screen shot I took from the Act:

Arms Control and Disarmament Act

The job of this new federal “agency of peace” is “to provide the essential scientific, economic, political, military, psychological and technological information upon which realistic arms control and disarmament policy must be based.”

The Act defines “arms control” and “disarmament” as “the identification, verification, inspection, limitation, control, reduction, or elimination, of armed forces and armaments of all kinds under international agreement including the necessary steps taken under such an agreement to establish an effective system of international control, or to create and strengthen international organizations for the maintenance of peace.”

Translated into simpler English, the Arms Control and Disarmament Act aims at none other than the elimination of the U.S. military and of all civilian firearms (“armaments of all kinds”) — all to be placed under an international body (“system of international control”).

The “agency of peace” turned out to be the Arms Control and Disarmament Agency (ACDA), an independent agency of the United States government — an agency established through a separate statute passed by Congress, which exists outside of the federal executive departments (those headed by a Cabinet secretary), and which while constitutionally part of the executive branch, is independent of presidential control, usually because the president’s power to dismiss the agency head or a member is limited.

In 1997, the Clinton administration integrated the ACDA with the State Department. The ACDA’s executive is Obama appointee Under Secretary Rose Gottemoeller. She communicates with the president (Obama) through the secretary of state (John Kerry).

The ACDA’s current programs appear to be international in focus:

  • Stopping Nuclear Testing
  • Banning Chemical Weapons
  • Reducing Strategic Nuclear Arms
  • Keeping Nuclear Weapons out of the hands of rogue states
  • Preventing the use of disease as a weapon of war

Since its passage into law, the Arms Control and Disarmament Act has been amended 9 times, the most recent amendment was in 1989 in the George H. W. Bush administration.


Proposed UN Tribunal of Climate Justice threatens U.S. sovereignty, while Antarctica ice is increasing, not melting

The Christian Science Monitor reports that a new NASA study found that Antarctica has been adding more ice than it’s been losing, challenging other research, including that of the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, that concludes that Earth’s southern continent is losing land ice overall.

In a paper published in the Journal of Glaciology, researchers from NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, the University of Maryland in College Park, and the engineering firm Sigma Space Corporation offer a new analysis of satellite data that show a net gain of 112 billion tons of ice a year from 1992 to 2001 in the Antarctic ice sheet, “slowing” to a net gain of 82 billion tons of ice per year between 2003 and 2008.

The study’s authors say these findings challenge current explanations for sea level rise, much of which is attributed to melting ice sheets in Greenland and Antarctica from “global warming.”

One of the authors, Dr. Zwally, said, “The good news is that Antarctica is not currently contributing to sea level rise, but is taking 0.23 millimeters per year away…. If the 0.27 millimeters per year of sea level rise attributed to Antarctica in the IPCC report is not really coming from Antarctica, there must be some other contribution to sea level rise that is not accounted for.”


Notwithstanding the fact that Antarctica has been gaining, not losing, ice, the climate change activists are proceeding with their agenda.

Leo Hohmann reports for WND that at the upcoming United Nations Climate Summit in Paris, scheduled for Nov. 30-Dec. 11, participating nations have prepared a treaty that would create an “International Tribunal of Climate Justice” giving Third World countries the power to haul the U.S. into a global court with enforcement powers.

According to the proposed draft text of the climate treaty, the tribunal would take up issues such as “climate justice,” “climate finance,” “technology transfers,” and “climate debt.”

The UN climate tribunal will bypass Congress. Policies once left to sovereign nations could be turned over to the U.N. tribunal if the U.S. and its allies approve the proposed deal in Paris during the summit.

China & Russia’s F-you to Obama

Obama knock-knock joke

Sangwon Yoon reports for Bloomberg, Sept. 25, 2015, that after Chinese President Xi Jinping left the White House’s state dinner (the one where “Michael” Obama displayed “his” massive trapezius muscles), he headed to New York to check in at the Chinese-owned Waldorf Astoria, just a few blocks from the UN campus.

On Sunday, Xi was joined by Russia President Vladimir Putin, who also picked the Waldorf for his first stay in Manhattan in a decade.

In 2014, the Hilton Worldwide Holdings Inc. sold the Waldorf Astoria to Beijing-based Anbang Insurance Group Ltd. for $1.95 billion.

The symbolism of two such high-profile figures, whose countries routinely vote in tandem at the UN Security Council, choosing a Chinese-owned hotel cannot be lost on the White House.

But then Obama is no better.

As the Bloomberg report puts it, “after a decades-long tradition of staying at the storied hotel built on a former cemetery,” Barack Obama and his entourage relocated to South Korean-owned Lotte New York Palace Hotel for UNGA week.

Obama gives America the finger

For now, the 42nd floor of Waldorf Towers still serves as the official residence for the U.S. ambassador to the UN. While the Hilton will manage the property for the next century under the terms of its sale, Anbang’s ownership and call for a major renovation raised concerns about whether the Waldorf would remain a secure location for sensitive and classified government conversations, according to two U.S. officials, who asked not to be named citing sensitivity of the matter.

Third World countries want more than $100B a year in “climate change” reparations


This is insanity.

USA Today reports, Sept. 12, 2015, that preparatory talks ahead of the UN Conference on Climate Change to be held in Paris in December has representatives from developing nations asking for more than an already agreed upon $100 billion per year for climate change mitigation measures

Third World countries claim that they’re suffering from extreme weather disasters caused by “climate change” — what the greens used to call “global warming” — and they want rich countries like the United States to pay to relocate their populations to safer terrains (climate change refugees) and as reparations for their failure to follow through on aid pledges after weather disasters.

An example of the latter was Cyclone Pam’s devastation of islands in the South Pacific last March. But attention quickly turned to the massive earthquake in Nepal soon thereafter, which left small countries such as the island nation of Vanuatu to manage its own cleanup without much in the way of international assistance.

The poorer countries blame extreme weather-­related disasters on climate change stemming from emission­ polluting countries that have more developed and wealthier economies.

The “gimme” countries want all this to be legally binding as part of the anticipated Paris accord. But the U.S. and the EU are balking.

The U.N. Paris conference aims to reach an international, legally biding agreement on climate change that would reduce greenhouse gas emissions and thwart global temperature rise. A separate agreement will address losses and damages from extreme weather events.

As it stands, the Warsaw Mechanism, adopted in 2013 at the U.N. climate conference in Poland, established a structure to address losses and damages associated with climate change. However that mechanism is due to expire this year when a new climate agreement is reached. Reports indicate a compromise will be sought whereby the Warsaw Mechanism is extended, yet carved out from any legally binding agreement.

Meanwhile, environmental groups are lobbying to make reparations even more punitive by requiring polluting companies in the private sector to pay for extreme weather­-related damages.

Property and casualty losses have been a point of contention for years in climate­ change discussions. How to handle refugee claims is a relatively new issue that comes at a time when Europe is facing a separate refugee crisis of its own, with hordes of people from war­torn countries in the Middle East and North Africa seeking asylum in Europe. Nine civil wars are raging in countries from Pakistan to Nigeria.
