- Hi, This is David, I do the political art here at Rense.com.
Earlier this week, I received the following distressing letter from Laurie,
who, along with her family and pets, have been stricken for the last 14
years with an emerging and mysterious affliction called Morgellons.
- She wrote to ask if I would create a Morgellons art image
that could wake people up to the fact that, not only are thousands or millions
now suffering, but we might ALL one day be in grave danger from its nightmarish
effects. So, I read the letter again realizing how difficult it could be
to illustrate Morgellons - that is, until I came to the very last line.
I could then clearly visualize the concept that became the splash art
you see now.
- The truth is, this is an extremely difficult subject
to confront, so I dare everyone to read Laurie's entire letter; to really
consider her and her family's situation, and try to imagine how you might
begin to handle it yourself. It is my hope that all of us will read the
abundance of Morgellons data, including videos and photographs, on rense.com,
and then listen to some of the special Jeff Rense Morgellons programs.
Look on the left side of Jeff's homepage for the Morgellons link image.
You can also Google Morgellons and study even more photographs. Hopefully,
you will then email some of this data to your doctor, local hospitals,
medical community and public health agencies. We all need to become far
more aggressive in researching and implementing proper treatment for this
terrible, devastating science fiction-like disease, or syndrome, or whatever
- And now here is Laurie's story...
- Dear David Dees...
- I see your work every day on Rense.com. Thank YOU for
your talent and gifts to the world.
- I want to ask you to please do something for all
of us FAMILIES suffering from Morgellons (there are 11,046 families KNOWN
to be infected). My husband and I, and our pets, have been sickened with
this disease for 14 years now. The CDC has been warned for at least 10
years that something HORRIFIC was happening to people, and yet they choose
to do essentially NOTHING (except appoint a 'study group') to help the
infected - even though entire families are being stricken and ruined by
- 'BIO-remediation' may be killing the planet. My husband
was infected at a chemical plant in Freeport, Texas - one of the hot spots
of Morgellons disease. We have poured our hearts out on the New Morgellons
Order Web site - we were the Morgies of the Month for April 2007 - and
I have sent hundreds and hundreds of emails to news media, medical universities,
medical hospitals, the White House, you name it. I've written to the NIH,
WHO (every office worldwide), you name it and NOT ONE PERSON contacted
me. The TRUTH, you see, is too frightening.
- Back in 1993, my husband was forced to work around MANipulated
NANO-engineered microbes. It cost $10,000 for one 35 gallon barrel of these
microbes back then and they used about 2 barrels a month at this wastewater
treatment plant inside the chemical plant. He was given NO SAFETY PROCEDURES,
NO PROTECTIVE CLOTHING, nothing... and there was NO PROPER TESTING to ensure
the safety of the maintenance workers forced to work around these
open pits and blowers harbouring these microbes. In fact, they would be
working and oiling the blowers while they were still running and pouring
a mist into the air all around the wastewater treatment plant - a heavy
fog, really. These microbes could have been be airborne in that mist NO
PROBLEM. In fact, the parking lot for the chemical plant workers was right
beside the wastewater treatment part of the plant. The fog hung thick in
the air around the parking lot. No wonder this area is considered a hot
spot for this disease. The truth will prevail as more and more families
are sickened with Morgellons...or whatever it is.
- We tried to bring the turth out legally through one of
the top environmental attorneys in the country but were told we had exceeded
our "Statue of Limitations" - meaning we took too long, even
though the CDC and the medical community hasn't got a clue what's going
on. We were supposed to figure this all out much sooner by ourselves.
- It has been recently shown through the work of private
researchers with Clifford Carnicom leading the way, that something is very
wrong with the blood of the Morgellons-infected. We have been infected
for 14 years now and there is no doubt the public blood supply is compromised
and in danger. I would also propose that this disease can transfer from
an infected mother to her unborn child. This is a SILENT EPIDEMIC and it
has been spreading for years now. The medical community - especially
DERMATOLOGISTS - have their heads up their asses on this one. Even when
a Morgellons patient has been certified NOT CRAZY by Phyciatrists, these
same dermatologists have taken it upon themselves to prescribe 'anti-phycotic'
drugs to Morgellons patients. The dermatologists deemed us 'delusional'
and 'crazy' with no serious testing on their part or ANY clinical research
to back them up.
- Morgellons-infected live with open lesions on their body.
The left side of my scalp right now is horrendous...lesions creeping and
hair loss spreading. My forearms and face and neck at any time can be littered
with lesions, and that is just the beginning of what we go through continually.
Among many other thinngs, we must also try to deal with:
- Eye floaters and constant grit in our eyes.
- Almost instant overheating and sweating of our bodies
- Chronic fatigue as these 'micromachines' feed off of
our energy, zapping nearly every ounce of stamina from us...even small
tasks become overwhelming.
- Insomnia...chronic and dreadful.
- Deteriorating condition of our teeth and tooth loss -
my husband has lost 4 teeth and my teeth are deteriorating even though
for 38 years I was told what beautiful teeth I had.
- Chronic physical wasting - my husband has lost 40 pounds
in 4 years I lost 30 pounds in 3 years but for many years I was constantly
bloated in my stomach and abdominal area.
- Constipation and/or diarrhea...either one or the other,
and IBS-type symptoms.
- Ringing and thumping in the ears...like tinnitus, but
- David, there are 93 reported symptoms by the researchers
investigating Morgellons. I believe my husband, pets and I live with about
30 of them every day.
- I have to mention how this disease effects you mentally.
One of the first neurological symptoms we faced was the loss of words.
We found ourselves stuttering over the most simple known words that just
don't come easily anymore, or at all. So you stutter and stammer or often
just insert almost ANY word in a sentence while your mind searches for
that word you have known all your life. The brain fog and inability
to stay centered on things is simply horrible. My husband has developed
a left sided limp and his left foot feels numb or dead to him and even
trips him occasionally.
- Upon standing, he gets dizzy spells like vertigo but
milder in nature. We both have had severe lower back pain that required
pain management specialists and cortisone injections by catheter within
months of each other.....we both have had liver counts shoot off the charts...and
then drop back to normal.
- I have found that my desire, or willpower, is gone...even
to do the things I Love...which now all sit idle. Morgellons strips
you of your creativity and at times I find it very difficult to stay focused.
And then there are times you act compulsively or are obsessive in your
actions. I never had any of these issues before Morgellons.
- You can spend hours and hours tending to painful lesions
every day. It feels like plastic or glass coming out of your skin.
In fact, I have been SHOCKED at what has come from some of my deep lesions
- and all I have is a magnifying glass. There are all the usual fibers
and gristle-like things, and then there are red jello-looking globs which
almost look like blood clots but are obviously not.
- Going out in public has turned into a nightmare. Even
in the heat of the summer, I have to wear long sleeve shirts and bundle
up so as not to scare people. Morgellons can send your body heat zooming
in moments...but we still have to cover ourselves in public. The whole disease
is mentally overwhelming...it is anything but just a 'skin condition'.
- Perhaps the most devastating of all is the HELPLESSNESS...the
complete failure the medical establishment has put upon us. I believe this
is the first disease in history where the patients have had to resort to
buying their own lab equipment to prove that the DOCTOR is the crazy one
and not the patient. We pray every day the medical community
will awaken to the fact that this is REAL and spreading and that they could
be next. This affliction does not discriminate...everyone is at risk.
- Morgellons is infectious or transferrable at close
contact. Over the years (14), we have infected other family members including
my husband's daughter. Her first-born was premature and almost died and
we expect any time now the child's health is going to turn for the worse.
- This disease takes time to replicate in your body, but
over time you soon become too sick to work and soon after that, it becomes
difficult to even do the things just to keep going. Morgellons could come
to cripple the entire nation and I see it being far worse than AIDS in
20 years. This is a FAMILY disease. Not only are you infected, but in time
the whole family becomes sick - including the pets. We have infected 4
dogs and 1 African Grey parrot. Two of the dogs and the parrot are dead.
- Tunes, our Great Dane, came from dedicated breeders...all
"show dog" in the blood line and a completely healthy background.
At age 5, he became very sick and our vet said it was heart worms - and
he underwent that serious heart worm treatment that can kill dogs. Tunes
made it through...even though he hacked and coughed and was sick for some
time. A year later, a woman approached us at the beach (we lived 10
minutes from the Gulf of Mexico) and asked if we were interested in breeding
him - he was a big boy at 220 and big-boned. The mother was also a healthy
Great Dane and carried the subequent litter which yielded 6 puppies. But
then the mother became sick, and several puppies died, including one we
had gifted to friends that died within weeks of coming home. The Vet, again,
said it was heartworms. We believe it was Morgellons that caused the whole
- Henderson, our Blood Hound, was only 1 and 1/2 when he
became sick. Coughing mostly, the vet diagnosed him with with 'Dilated
Cardiomyopathy'. His condition went down hill and before he reached 2,
we had to put him down. It was VERY SAD. This disease took him fast...he
might have been weak to begin with, we're not sure, but it took him down
in no time at all. He was still a puppy if you ask me.
- Within six months of bringing the African Grey parrot
into our home...she had plucked out every feather she could reach. She
looked ready for the stew pot, and then died. We asked countless BIRD PEOPLE
what was going wrong and even attended a bird show in Galveston looking
for help. Some said it was her diet, others that she was lonely. Nothing
ever made sense to us. She was gifted to us from Steve's dad who had owned
her for many years. Sammie had been pretty much alone...and had the same
diet we were feeding her - fresh fruit, seeds and bird treats/goodies.
In fact, she had more activity in our home than any time at his dad's,
so it wasn't the lonely theory, either. Now, however, it all makes
sense to me. Poor Samantha we just didn't know then.
- Beardsley, the second of our three bloodhounds, will
be 10 in January. He has been sick for years now...rashes and sores, coughing,
grit and discharge come out of his eyes, his ears need cleaning daily,
and his head overheats at times just like ours do. He was also diagnosed
with 'Dilated Cardiomyopathy' and placed on heart medication. Note that
all these pets are from different breeders and all came from respectable
people dedicated to their litters and healthy puppies. Beardsly even shows
signs of obsessive-compulsive disorder sometimes - like just baying over
and over at his ball until you nearly lose your mind...and either play
with him or hide the ball somewhere.
- AnnaBelle, our last bloodhound is 5, and started showing
signs of Morgellons a couple of years ago...licking and picking at her
privates more than she should and viciously biting at her forearms and
forelegs and paws. There are times she is so obsessed with her biting you
can't distract her. She also gets the gritty, sticky discharge coming from
her eyes, and her ears need attention every other day. And, again, like
Steve and I, and Beardsley, she also becomes overheated very quickly and
exhibits an extremely hot head.
- The only good thing (counting our blessings) is that
not one of our little friends ever lost their appetite, they always ate
well. However, as much as I love animals these will be our last pets...considering
what we know about Morgellons. I was beginning to wonder why
everything that came into our loving home has become sick or has died.
Now we believe we know.
- David, I hope you can draw an illustration that would
bring proper worldwide attention to this ever-spreading disease that the
CDC is covering up for the EPA. Someone, somewhere in some government lab
has created the DISASTER OF THE CENTURY. Everything is sick and dying.
THEY created something with these MANipulated microbes that NO living thng
on this planet is immune to. Hence, we may be facing the third largest
extinction in the history of this planet. It is our belief that this microbe
- be it nano-spawned and based, or bacterial or viral (which we doubt)
is spreading around this planet. Although it may have been designed to
eat and 'process' things like sewage sludge and oil and chemical spills,
it is now eating US. Just look around the planet:
- * Our bees are disappearing
- * Toxic algae is overtaking waterways everywhere
- * Dead Zones are ever-expanding in our oceans
- * Fish populations are dying (and not just from overfishing
like the idiots want us to believe)
- * Coral reefs are dying
- * Elk, Moose and Deer are dying from some sort of wasting
disease (which appears to be a form of BSE)
- * 189 species of birds are going extinct and populations
everywhere are way down
- * Frogs and snakes are dying from some sort of fungus
- * Red TIDES and the 'flesh-eating' strep bacteria are
invading our lakes and waterways
- We believe Morgellons could somehow be involved with
some or all of these conditions The Morgellons microbe - likely a nano-created,
self-assembling, self-replicating monster - may have been designed to eat
'nasties' in the environment ...but could now be infesting and killing
life on the entire planet.
- I lived life to the fullest before Morgellons. When I
was heathly, nothing could stop me. I was the first female in the painters
union in Vancouver, BC in 1978, and then one of the first females to ride
with the Houston Fire Department for Emergency Medical Training. It was
so wonderful and I learned so much. I even watched 5 different operations
standing right next to the anesthesiologist, and worked many, many hours
in some of Houston's best trauma hospitals. It was facinating to watch
these trauma teams do their stuff. I had one job in Houston at an old bank
they converted into a blues club and had entertainment like Ray Charles,
BB King, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, etc. I was a go-getter - nothing held
me down. I never knew a 'stranger' and could talk to anyone. Now? I sit
living life as a hermit, a chronically-ill hermit. Thank God Steve and
I love each other so much. I would hate to be sick alone. We make
the most of what has been dealt to us - we need each other as much as we
love each other. I haven't seen my family or friends for almost three years
now as I'm in fear of infecting them.
- I hope millions of people see your work and my story...and
that their jaws drop to the floor. This is what needs to happen to wake
the masses up. They need some shock treatment. Just posting the 'wake-up'
isn't doing it. EVERYONE needs to read the Morgellons data and view
the images at Rense.com. Your work has a way of opening up eyes big and
wide. Mine have been open for some time now...they can't get much bigger.
We are in deep, deep trouble on this planet of ours...
- David, I do enjoy your work very much and I look
forward to each new piece when I read my news every morning on Rense.com.
- Take Care...and our Best Wishes to you during the holidays...
from a very sick and frustrated Morgellons FAMILY,
- Laurie Smith
