LINDSEY GRAHAM: DOSSIER ‘HAS PROVEN TO BE A BUNCH OF GARBAGE’: South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, a top member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said Sunday that the Steele dossier “has proven to be a bunch of garbage” and that the FBI has verified “almost none of it.” Graham was commenting on the dossier, which was funded by the Clinton campaign and DNC, in the wake …

Have you or your friends and family been diagnosed with, "an unknown virus" with peculiar, flu-like symptoms that hang on for weeks or even months? Do you know people who never completely recover? Perhaps they have lingering fatigue, recurrent fevers, irritable bowels, continuing respiratory problems and other symptoms of illness?
(DO YOU KNOW THE POLIO VIRUS HAS DOZENS OF ENTEROVIRUS COUSINS, JUST WAITING TO FLOAT INTO OUR EYES, NOSES & THROATS? FROM HENCE THEY TRAVEL TO OUR DIGESTIVE SYSTEMS, IRRITATING OUR BOWELS, PERHAPS FOREVER. MANY CAN MIGRATE TO SAFE HAVEN IN OUR NERVOUS SYSTEMS. THOUGH THE ENTERO- PART OF ENTEROVIRUS REFERS TO BOWELS WHERE THESE VIRUSES THRIVE. THEY CAN ALSO CAUSE RESPIRATORY INFECTIONS. KEEP THESE THOUGHTS IN MIND AS WE EXPLORE DAMAGING VIRAL INFECTIONS.)
I had a very serious unknown "virus" from April to November last year. "Virus" is in quotes because that is the medical providers' best guess. Nobody seems to be watching these outbreaks, there are no diagnostic techniques and so best guessing is as good as it gets. My favourite label is, "an unknown virus we have never seen before," spoken by ER personnel, accompanied by a grimace and shudder. Such was the opinion of the outbreak of 2017.
The unknown virus comment is usually followed with, "it is making a lot of people in the community really sick for a really long time." Welcome to Twenty-First Century medicine at its finest when a disease crops up that no one has ever seen before. Officially, it seems, nobody cares.
For a couple years I have been caring for a family member. Mostly we stay to ourselves but in April, 2017 we stupidly went to lunch with a friend. One of the few restaurants open on a Sunday was a gymnasium sized, big-box store thing with a format for children. No less than four birthday parties for grade schoolers were in progress when we arrived and kids were practically climbing the walls. "This would be a great place to catch the flu," I thought, but nonetheless we bravely chose a table for three and stumbled over the kids on our way to the taco buffet.
About 48 hours later my family member coughed rhythmically all night, dry and not deep, like a huff, huff, huff, hour after hour, uninterrupted throughout the night. Fever was noted the next day. Another 48 hours passed and I awoke with a fever of 102.3 degrees F, laid on the couch and scarcely got up for the next 32 days.
Keeping the story shorter, my relative and I both ended up in a care center though strings had to be pulled for me to enter because I am yet middle aged and not elderly. I had gotten to the point where, after almost six weeks of debilitating, unremitting illness, I could no longer care for myself. (The local hospital is only "acute access" or whatever it is called so sick people are seldom admitted unless they have had an emergency and six weeks of illness does not constitute an emergency!)
My elderly relative fared much better than me but I have a long history of difficulties--including partial paralysis and permanent nerve damage--from viral illnesses. Last year's unknown virus nobody had ever seen before, attacked both respiratory and digestive functions. I coughed up the last bloody scabs--from bronchial tubes?-- in November. I refuse to describe what happened to my digestive organs though keeping with the bloody scab description, there was an onset of irritable bowel issues which finally resolved last October.
An alternate catch-all medical term for previously unseen and unknown viruses is "flu". As in, "you have the flu and we can't do anything for it so go home." During the illness last year I went to doctors a number of times. ER doctors did a test for flu which I would liken to having a tampon with long strings shoved up your nose and into your throat so it can scrape something off your tonsils if you have any. They said the test was negative for flu but that the test was extremely inaccurate so it might not mean anything anyway.
Roughly, every 20 years of my life I have had "flu" which damaged my nervous system. For years I lived with a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis due to some of this lingering damage. So I assumed last year's disaster was just one of those episodes and I should be safe for another 20 years. WRONG!
Six weeks ago my patient urgently needed a new medication which the pharmacy finally filled around closing time. It appears that EVERYBODY decides to pick up their meds after work in the evening. I waited 30 minutes in a very long line, breathing stuffy, sweaty, germ laden air in a big box store packed cheek to jowl with late shoppers. Twenty-four hours later I experienced severe fatigue but no other signs of illness. I had not been around people or in a public place for more than five days prior to being at the pharmacy and I did not touch anything but my credit card and the sack with medicine, so I assume I inhaled the destructive virus while standing in line.
After I had several days of severe fatigue, my relative had urine the color of Coca Cola, profuse vomiting and a bright scarlet rash on all body parts but hands, feet and head. (I note that distinction because there is an enteroviral viral disease called Hand Foot and Mouth and those are the places where rash appears. Apparently whatever we have had was not HFM.) My relative's regular doctor ordered a trip to the ER for "observation" and since all tests came back OK, the diagnosis was "probably a virus" due to the rash and "probably a stomach bug" due to the vomiting.
We went home, went to bed, had fevers of 101.2 and barely got up for four days. When I had to get up I made sure to feed and hydrate my patient who was too weak to hold a spoon. After seven days my patient got better and I got worse. My patient then slept for the next 20 days, getting up in the morning, going back to sleep in a recliner, then getting up to go back to bed.
For me, this year is a repeat of the last but not quite as bad. Nerves on the right side of my face which were damaged during a viral infection in 1994 are affected again. In the first week there were stabbing, crushing, tearing pains in my chest, limbs and face. Over 30 days later my right eyelid still flutters at odd times. My lungs and digestive system from throat to stomach and beyond all feel like they are on fire. It is hard to eat because I feel like I have been slugged in the gut with a big fist and I am losing weight. Other symptoms I will not describe. I started guzzling Pepto Bismol to put out the fire, something that has helped in the past.
If this was merely a personal story, it would not matter. Both last year and this, medical staff have said there were "unknown" viral illnesses sickening "lots of people in the community" for "really long periods of time, weeks or even months in some cases." So what are these devastating illnesses? What is being done about them? Apparently nothing! Since most viruses cannot be effectively treated or identified, medical practice throws up its collective hands, gives palliative or emergency care as needed and if the patient remains ill too long, said patient is shipped off to a psychiatrist.
A defensive argument from the medical "community" would be that few if any people actually die from these unknown viruses. Well, maybe some really old people in nursing homes die from these virus outbreaks but anything could kill them and they were going to die anyway. (Back in 1994 when I was so ill, the hometown paper scarcely had room to print the obituaries of nursing home patients who died one after the other. A patient in one of these homes later told me how terrible the virus had been!)
Recent scholarly articles on any medical subject seem to have a requirement to describe whatever disease in terms of "global burden" and cost, direct and indirect such as lost wages and productivity. I wonder what is the "global burden" of these un-tracked, unknown virus caused diseases from which some people never fully recover? Last year it was said that workers in one of the few local industries were especially hard hit with the mystery virus, many allegedly off work for up to six weeks. God help minimum wage earners one paycheck away from homelessness.
My friends and I sometimes remember the diseases we encountered as kids back in the 60's and 70's. As we remember it there were colds, flu and "stomach flu". Mostly we remember that people used to get well after a week or so and what the heck is going on now when people get something that acts like the flu but never goes away? A few of my friends have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome following mystery infections. Some of them are applying for disability and living in poverty. All because of viral diseases? Nobody knows.
The fact that my relative had a massive, scarlet red petechial rash, urine the color of Coke and digestive symptoms which garnered a diagnosis of "probable virus", "probably stomach bug" at the ER, could demonstrate that the infection was an enterovirus. There are hundreds of these relatives of the poliovirus we have largely eradicated globally. They include echovirus, Coxsackie virus and the dreaded EV-D68 that has crippled perhaps 100 children in the U.S. in recent years.
Let's look at Coxsackie virus, named for a town in New York state of that name. Once upon a time outbreaks of debilitating illness were investigated.
"In the summer of 1947 there were several small outbreaks of poliomyelitis in upstate New York," says an article in virology blog, www.virology.ws/2009/08/10/coxsackie-ny-and-the-virus-named-after-it. Gilbert Dalldorf and his associate Grace M. Sickles of the Wadsworth Laboratory in Albany New York collected fecal samples, injected mice and found a new virus which was subsequently named for the town where the outbreak occurred. This particular, nasty little bug caused paralysis by damaging muscles rather than the nerves attacked by regular poliovirus, according to the blog.
Enteroviruses like Coxsackie are also suspected of causing Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) aka myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME). At me-pedia.org there is a list of mysterious worldwide outbreaks of ME and CFS, starting in the 1930's.
Jane Colby a British former Head Teacher and author wrote ME - The New Plague. At www.methenewplague.net/About-Jane.html it says, " In the 1980s, Jane was severely disabled with MR due to a virus related to polio." On another page at this site "Read the Latest Episode", the heading asks, "Is ME New Variant Polio?" Describing the discovery of the Coxsackie virus Jane writes, "The disease was considered to be Atypical Polio, because its symptoms identified it as a kind of polio despite the virus being apparently different." Please check out Jane Colby's information at the site listed above, which I believe is a current online reissue of her book.
I started out describing my past two years' experience with "unknown virus" diagnoses. Since no testing has been available I cannot say that my relative or I actually have enterovirus though we have both been diagnosed with a probable viral stomach bug which coincidentally is said to be making a lot of local folks really sick for weeks or months. My relative and I have both had respiratory symptoms along with the digestive illness. I still have neurological complications, pain and twitching in my face. This is the third incidence in my life of an unidentified virus causing long term disability, with the first time in 1994 having done neurological damage that for years resembled MS. If I live the average lifespan of my family I will probably live another 30 years. Unknown viruses have taken at least one of those years and that is too much.
What could or should medical science be doing? It amazes me how our "transformed", Obamatized medical system, now called "health care", is intent on tracking our personal habits while it does not seem to give a flying flip about emerging viruses. The record keeping system is dependent upon smoking status, whether a patient has EVER smoked, or ever consumed more alcohol than government allows in pursuit of low costs and optimum health. The people are being watched but the viruses are not in my opinion. Get one of these weird viruses and you are on your own. If you get sick enough you will be sent to a psychiatrist. Or as Jane Colby writes, "...when the world was young and CFS wasn't even a gleam in a psychiatrist's eye."
In my opinion medical science should think back to the "Spanish Flu" pandemic of 1918-1920. People who have studied this believe the virus first passed through the population in 1917. When it recirculated in 1918 it was extremely deadly, eventually killing 50 to 100 million people around the globe. With the advent of DNA and all our other marvelous laboratory tools, modern investigators were hard put to obtain biological samples from the time. Great efforts were even made to dig up mass graves from areas of permafrost in order to collect needed samples. The driving questions were, what was it and could it happen again?
What about the unknown viral diseases of today which severely damage some patients? What if those viruses are all related to poliovirus? The stakes were raised quite a bit when EV-D68 started crippling children. What if the "unknown virus" of today, which causes weeks or months of suffering for many, comes back next year as an epidemic causing severe disability or mortality? It has been said that a really successful plague virus of the future would have to pass as easily as the flu. Enteroviruses, though they have an affinity for our bowels, at least some can be acquired by inhaling aerosolized droplets, a fancy term for a cough or sneeze. (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov , Enterovirus D68 Infection, 2015 Nov)
Wouldn't it make sense right now for doctors to collect biological evidence and store it in case something like atypical polio fatally attacks the global population in the future? How much would it cost to collect and store throat or nasal swabs and selected body fluids during the peculiar outbreaks of these unknown viruses nobody has ever seen before? Toss the specimens in a vat of liquid nitrogen and they would be ready for future analysis.
In 1994 I begged doctors to find out what had made me so sick and they sent me to a psychiatrist. For years after that I raged and read everything I could find about similar outbreaks of viral disease and then decided I could live with the damage to my body, while reasoning I was better off than several people in my area who were severely crippled during viral infections that year. I was willing to write off last year's debilitating agony as an aberration unlikely to repeat but what about this year and what about all the other people who are said to be very sick with this viral "stomach bug" of 2018? I for one am sick and chronically fatigued, so to speak, of these stealth viruses that cause illness without recovery. Many other viral victims share this view!
It is high time for "public health" to listen to suffering patients, to stop dumping damaged people on the psychiatric profession, and to start tracking viruses. Otherwise tomorrow's deadly plague will come and government health care will be caught with its head in the sand mumbling, "huh, what....we never saw it coming...."
COMMENT ON SOURCE:
If you have had any of these mystery viruses, have CFS/ME or know someone who has, please DO check out Jane Colby's online book ME - The New Plague at www.methenewplague.net . (For some reason when I go there my server says the page cannot be found and then it miraculously appears.)
Let us educate ourselves, fight to be taken seriously and bring pressure on the medical powers that be, to get these unknown viruses identified and stopped.
Your comments below are very welcome!

Good morning friends and family or should I just say family.
The world we live in today is a very scary place. We must band together and use that fear to motivate us to prepare for an uncertain future. It seems our future is in decline and we must break that cycle.
Americans and our government have not always done the right thing or the best thing for our country and sometimes those things don't go together. We must find it in our own hearts regardless of whatever color, religion or ethnic origin we represent to understand everyone's opinion matters. We have to stop fighting against each other and listen to different opinions and solve the gaps, not create larger ones.
It's starts with you, right now! You have the power to change your life and the lives of those around you. Jesus never wavered in his beliefs at cost of his own mortal life. Even if you don't believe in heaven, hell or an afterlife, I respect that opinion but believe in what Jesus stood for; commitment, loyalty, faith, hope, love, persistence, integrity, courage, accountability, compassion and most of all sacrifice for everyone, even those who threw stones, beat and eventually sent him to his father.
They didn't kill Jesus because you can't kill a soul, idea, a movement or a way of life no matter how hard you try. You can try to rewrite or destroy all symbols or a history that you don't like but future generations will rewrite it again and again. If we don't remember history we're going to repeat it without fail.
Every religion has a God but everyone calls him by a different name, follows a different word or system that was created by men for their God. Don't get me wrong I'm not the best Christian in the world, not even close but I believe the love and goodness in our hearts will eventually overtake the hate we feel for anyone or thing of this world. I don't mean to say that criminals or terrorists shouldn't be punished but religion speaks to them more than all others because of their circumstance.
Stand for right today. Teach your children love, respect, honor and integrity because all of us have to see that those values are fading with the years and the ones that are coming faster everyday.

By Anna Morris, Editor, Freedom Fighters of America
The family is innocent so let us first enrage the legions who have spent 21 years crucifying the family through official channels, the press, television and online. No one in the family had any part in the torture, bondage, strangulation and bludgeoning death of Jonbenet who was just 6 on that fatal Christmas night. New eyes looking at old evidence clearly see a plan hatched by an older man we will call The Organizer. Three were involved; there were two, young accomplices.
I firmly believe that because of something I have been following online for a couple years. Team JBI--Jonbenet Investigation-- is the story behind the 'Enquirer' story. Briefly mentioned toward the end of the article, the real story is found in years of detailed work by Michigan native Roscoe Clark, videographer and certified forensic technician. In various interviews and posts he details his private purchases of $75,000 worth of equipment for the purpose of solving this case. One of his high tech tools is called an M-Vac which can suck up evidence at the micron level and store it on a pad that can be mailed to a laboratory. Team JBI https://www.facebook.com/jonbenetinvestigation/
Posts on the Team JBI page note that police in Boulder, CO spent two million dollars zeroing in on family for 20 years and not solving the case, while Team JBI claims to have solved it on a shoestring. Has Team JBI solved it? I believe so though all of the details are not yet public and some specific questions I have asked are not answered. Let Roscoe Clark and his Team set their own time scale, officials spent decades trying to prove family did it. Between the efforts of these officials and media piranhas many innocent lives were destroyed.
Media piranhas instinctively smelled money in this crime story, similar to way the little shark-jawed fish smell blood in the water. The result of the endless feeding frenzy and subsequent hemorrhage of printer's ink is that people around the globe think they know the case. The crime fantasy usually goes something like this: There was a bed wetting incident, the mother 'snapped' and accidentally killed her child. Father and mother spent the rest of the night 'staging' a fake kidnapping and murder. Family had to have done it and how dare anyone question that wisdom gleefully and profitably endorsed by the tabloid press?
Roscoe Clark dared and his questions led to research which points to a man in Jonbenet's neighborhood who seems to have been barely a blip in the investigation. Respected investigative journalist Jeff Shapiro who immersed himself in the Ramsey case from the beginning said of this man,"he's harmless, just a nice guy." Continuing with this theme Shapiro supported the warm, fuzzy impression, "Harmless guy, as a suspect, he's laughable; Nice fella." 
The front cover of the Enquirer has a different opinion and the article inside gives him a name. "Creep LIVED IN neighbor's basement!", screams the headline. Those following Roscoe Clark's detailed work on the JBI page know him as "the organizer". I capitalize the term to create a handle, The Organizer. In 1996 he lived in the basement of folks who had a close neighborly relationship with the Ramsey's. These neighbors were even trusted with a key to the Ramsey home and Jonbenet's little dog lived with them most of the time.
The bestial crime has until now been the perfect murder because the evidence is insane. First there is that nearly three page letter left at the bottom of a spiral staircase, the 'War and Peace' of ransom notes due to length. The text, readily available online, first declares a "small foreign faction" is behind the kidnapping. Considering that John Ramsey's computer company, Access Graphics, had grossed $1 billion in 1996, a fact reported in a printed article, the ransom demand amounted to chump change at $118,000. It was an insultingly low amount considering it was the price for the life and safe return of a beloved child.
Beginning with, "Mr. Ramsey," the letter displays The Organizer's envy and hatred throughout, while denigrating and threatening the father of Jonbenet. "Any deviation of my instructions will result in the immediate execution of your daughter," he taunted. "She dies," the fiend promised four times, especially if, "Police, F.B.I., etc.," are notified, in which case the victim will be "beheaded". Who would believe such perverted,creative drivel? The letter ends by putting the burden on Mr. Ramsey, "It is up to you now John!" His instant decision was to get help, to call the police. Tragically, according to Team JBI's findings, that was a fatal mistake.
This was a "letter of instruction" writes Clark on the Team JBI page, it was meant to be taken seriously, every bit of it. The seemingly omniscient letter writer wrote that the Ramsey's were being "monitored" and that they were under "constant scrutiny." Now that's crazy...unless the Creep LIVED IN the neighbor's basement across the street.
Profiling has been part of Team JBI work. "He travels by foot, bike and bus," has been oft repeated on the JBI page. He traveled this way because he had money trouble and cannot afford a car. There is a connection to a church nearby in the neighborhood which helps the homeless and destitute. Did he meet his generous landlords there during bible study? Is that how he came to dwell in a basement where his own money troubles mounted and his envy festered until he became The Organizer of one of the most debauched crimes ever committed?
Across the street from his intended victims, The Organizer had the perfect nest in which to hatch the crime from hell.
The biggest problem in solving this case have always been that no matter how it is viewed, it always feels like the perpetrator practically lived in the Ramsey home. Police investigators and journalists cannot be totally blamed for looking at family though in my opinion, they should have backed off and taken a fresh look a long time ago. Facts known early in the investigation should have turned "constant scrutiny" back in the direction of The Organizer.
If family and neighbors can be blamed for anything it would be for being too trusting, too kind, too open, too welcoming. John and Patsy Ramsey and others have said many times that the neighborhood appeared to be safe and that Boulder was a big town with a small town atmosphere. Jonbenet and her brother Burke rode bicycles in the neighborhood and played with friends. "Stranger danger" does not seem to have been a preoccupation and even if it had, would it have applied to the stranger living in the basement of trusted friends?
Even with extremely busy lives, the Ramsey's knew a number of their neighbors. Patsy watched out for the elderly couple across the street, the ones with the basement apartment. This couple may have had a key to the Ramsey home. Too big to hide with gift wrap under the Christmas tree, Jonbenet's bicycle was stored in that house across the street and John brought it home from there on Christmas Eve.
Jonbenet had a little white dog named Jacques and people wonder why the dog was not home to bark on the fatal night. The dog had sometimes boarded in that house across the street until it came to live there on a nearly permanent basis."The intruders knew the dog would not bark," says a post at Team JBI.
Some comments on the web claim a barking dog caused The Organizer to knock on the Ramsey's door the December 23, the night of the family Christmas party. A better sourced consensus is that he came looking for his landlords and was invited in. 
Several pictures taken during this party are posted on the JBI page with this comment about the planned crime, "It move to the next level." In a comment underneath the pictures Team JBI posted, "One of many note pads was located and collected so the three page ransom note could be printed, not printed in the Ramsey's house."  A huge stumbling block that has continually pointed to family involvement is that note pad was sourced to the Ramsey home. Worse yet, the pad and pen used to write the letter of instruction were returned to proper places within the home.
"Jonbenet told a little friend's mom that Santa had given her a 'secret message' at the family party--he intended to pay her a special visit," heads another collection of Ramsey family Christmas pictures in the 1/22/2018 post by Team JBI. Similar posts continue below concerning the party, "The note pad was collected and a message to Jonbenet about the special visit after Christmas happened." "He was at the party planning the kidnapping," explains another post. This was just about 48 hours before the crime actually unfolded.
The Christmas night alibi of the basement dweller named in the Enquirer was that he watched TV with his landlords and went to bet at 9 PM because he had a case of stomach flu. Beyond that he was reportedly $70,000 in debt and was asked for more than one handwriting sample because of similarities between his writing and the ransom note. He gave fingerprints, blood and hair and he passed a polygraph six days after the crime. For some, passing the so-called lie detector is absolutely exculpatory but Homicide Hunter Lt. Joe Kenda is famously quoted saying, "I don't trust polygraphs."
The Enquirer states this person of interest, "had a history of abusive and deranged behavior." Perhaps Detective Steve Thomas saw Shapiro's harmless, nice fellow when said of the man, "He couldn't have been more cooperative." 
The Team JBI work and the story it tells is still unfolding though the site claims the crime is solved. There is indication there will be a follow up article in the Enquirer. The recent publication naming the organizer is a first step. "We understand the crime," is a repeated comment on the JBI page.
According to Roscoe Clark's work, three were directly involved. Today there is indication a fourth person had a peripheral part. The Organizer wanted quick cash to solve his personal problems. The ransom note in my opinion has always dripped with envy and hatred against those who have more than the letter's author. The three were homeless or nearly so. The best these losers could do was to take the child from her bedroom to the basement. Keep in mind the house was huge and the parents' bedroom was on the fourth level. In the basement, the six-year old who had known nothing but love in her short life, was repeatedly sadistically tortured with bondage, electric shock and strangulation. The Satanic monsters played with their prey until Mrs. Ramsey came down the spiral staircase and found the note.
Team JBI has always been adamant that this was a "letter of instruction" to be taken seriously. The Organizer meant is when he wrote, "she dies". Mr. Ramsey instantly had his wife call the police. Like the letter said, the family was being monitored. At least one perpetrator was still in the basement. A final disfigurement was inflicted on Jonbenet when she was strangled to death and the thin cord, tangled into her blonde curls and a delicate gold cross necklace around her neck, embedded itself deep in the flesh of her neck.
The letter had said, "Any deviation of my instructions will result in the immediate execution of your daughter." An obviously empty threat followed, "You will also be denied her remains for proper burial." Those remains were very much disfigured by hours of torture and the final, fatal choking. This crime was no attempt by family to cover up an accidental death!
According to Team JBI there was one final postmortem injury, a tremendous blow from the knob end of a child's baseball bat which split Jonbenet's skull. The murderer locked himself and his lifeless victim into a windowless basement room sometimes called the 'wine cellar.' When police initially searched the home around 6:00 AM, they assumed the door had been painted shut. Clark's work says the killer wired the doorknob from inside, braced the door with a fireplace tool and his feet and hung on. Sometime later when the police who were left were occupied with people on the main floor, the killer simply walked out a door. He quietly set the child's bat on a ledge outside the door. A neighbor saw him walk away.
The Organizer died in 2005. Team JBI indicates the others are alive and reachable. Where does it go from here? I believe the next chapter is cryptically mentioned in the 1/25/2018 Morning Gazette Radio Show interview with Roscoe Clark available with this link:
"Jonbenet, we now hear your SILENT call. Justice will be done." Team JBI 2/3/2018
