The Stonewall Massacre

The beginning was the end.

 

Ken Kamlet narrates one of the most important works

of fiction that Charles Ortleb has ever written.

The lengthy short story is a work of alternative history that imagines what would have happened if the gay movement in had been destroyed in its infancy. What if the Stonewall riots had resulted in a bloody suppression of gay people all over America? What would society be like now? Would there have been an AIDS epidemic?

"The Stonewall Massacre" is told from the perspective of a waiter who witnesses the destruction of the gay community in 1969 in Greenwich Village. In this thought experiment, the Stonewall Riots fail and lead to a massive backlash against the gay community. He watches in horror as an antigay backlash takes place all over America. What happens to the gay community in this story resembles what is happening to gays across the globe these days.

But that is just the beginning.

This witty and visionary story jumps ahead to the outbreak of the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome epidemic. Because there is no visible gay community and no visible gay AIDS epidemic, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is recognized as the real AIDS epidemic. Without a gay community to scapegoat, the women who are first victims of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome find themselves being treated as AIDS pariahs.

Written by one of the most uncompromising American journalists and the author of "The Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Epidemic Cover-up," this story raises uncomfortable questions that have the potential to change the course of history.

This story is also a kind of coming out of the virus HHV-6, a virus which Ortleb has called "The Fifty Shades of AIDS virus," because it has been linked with many diseases that seem to be connected to the AIDS epidemic. For decades, Charles Ortleb has been criticized and mocked for focusing his journalism on HHV-6. But that is now changing. Ortleb's reporting on HHV-6's role in multiple diseases was recently vindicated by this statement from the University of Wurzburg: "While HHV-6 was long believed to have no negative impact on human health, scientists today increasingly suspect the virus of causing various diseases such as multiple sclerosis or chronic fatigue syndrome. Recent studies even suggest that HHV-6 might play a role in the pathogenesis of several diseases of the central nervous system such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression or Alzheimer's."

By the time you finish this provocative story, you'll want to read all of Charles Ortleb's historically important work on the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and HHV-6 epidemics.

About Charles Ortleb's Amazon Bestseller, The Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Epidemic Cover-up

If you want to know the truth about the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome epidemic, you need to discover the reporting of Neenyah Ostrom.

For a decade, starting in 1988, Ostrom reported on Chronic Fatigue Syndrome for a newspaper called New York Native. What her reporting uncovered about the true nature of the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome epidemic will shock you.

In The Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Epidemic Cover-up, Charles Ortleb recounts his newspaper's struggle to get the medical and political establishment to pay attention to Ostrom's pioneering investigative reporting on Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

By the time you finish Ortleb's stunning memoir, you will understand why the Centers for Disease Control has been unwilling to tell the public the truth about Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. The CDC does not want the public to know that Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is a transmissible illness linked to a virus called HHV-6 that affects every system in the body. They have covered up the illness for so many decades that the neglected virus is totally out of control. Now it is causing a long list of other illnesses and many cancers.

Nobody in the world covered the emergence of HHV-6 and its link to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome more than Neenyah Ostrom. Ostrom's decade of reporting on HHV-6 was recently vindicated by this statement from scientists at the University of Wurzburg: "While HHV-6 was long believed to have no negative impact on human health, scientists today increasingly suspect the virus of causing various diseases such as multiple sclerosis or chronic fatigue syndrome. Recent studies even suggest that HHV-6 might play a role in the pathogenesis of several diseases of the central nervous system such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression or Alzheimer's."

The big question about Neenyah Ostrom and New York Native is this: How many lives would have been saved if the scientific establishment and the mainstream media had paid more attention to Neenyah Ostrom's reporting on HHV-6 and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome in New York Native?

One day, if there is any justice in the world, the CDC and the medical establishment will apologize for not paying attention to Neenyah Ostrom's groundbreaking work on Chronic Fatigue Syndrome that Charles Ortleb published in New York Native. That would be a fitting end to one of journalism's greatest David and Goliath stories.

Charles Ortleb discusses the 1998 research by Dr. Thomas Glass on the possible transmission of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome between people and their pets. He also reads from an article by Neenyah Ostrom published eight years eariler in his newspaper, New York Native. Ostrom reported on a woman with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome whose sick dog tested positive for HHV-6, the virus that in increasingly being linked to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

This audio is part of a documentary called Beyond Unrest being made by Ortleb. Beyond Unrest will explore the decade of reporting New York Native did on the link between HHV-6, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and AIDS. The documentary will put to rest any notion that there is anything mysterious about the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome epidemic. Beyond Unrest will be based on Ortleb's book, The Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Epidemic Cover-up, which is a history of the intertwined nature of the AIDS and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome epidemics.

Charles Ortleb, the publisher and editor-in-chief of New York Native, discusses a recent column on Chronic Fatigue Syndrome by Jane E. Brody in The New York Times. He also discusses the reporting he published by Neenyah Ostrom in New York Native on Chronic Fatigue Syndrome three decades earlier. Not only did The New York Times ignore Ortleb's dedication to covering Chronic Fatigue Syndrome epidemic, but the paper also mocked Ortleb when his paper went out of business in 1997 after a coordinated boycott by the AIDS activist group Act Up. Ortleb's account of his newspaper's attempt to bring the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome epidemic to the public's attention can be found in his book The Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Epidemic Cover-up which is available at Amazon
