People often question as to whether the Lyme disease organism has been modified or genetically engineered. We are told it is an ancient organism but some scientists who deal with genetics have stated that it is very possible that Borrelia burgdorferi has been "enhanced". The Borrelia burgdorferi genome has been sequenced and has very unusual features.
We all have questions about the Lyme spirochete....but what about the Lyme disease tick itself? The usual explanation from mainstream science is that Lyme disease is spreading due to global warming and that people are moving into the woods and disturbing the natural habitat. Well....I have always lived in the woods. I used to roll in the leaves and in the grass of our lawn. Never once has anyone I have talked to...or myself....seen these tiny ticks when we were growing up in the 50's and 60's. What we call "deer ticks" were not in the Connecticut area. We saw the occasional dog tick but they did not appear to transmit any disease.
I have since read that the tiny Lyme tick was first seen in the 1920's on Naushon Island, which is owned by the Forbes family. The Forbes were known to have been very active in the opium trade. Was Naushon Island used for smuggling purposes?
Were experiments with ticks carried out there? If so, why would the Forbes family allow it? Many of their family members live there to this day.
During Operation PaperClip when Nazi scientists were recruited to the U.S. in the 30's and 40's, it was reported in The Belarus Secret that ticks were dropped from airplanes. Much biowarfare research has been conducted since. Germs are modified and engineered but the vectors or insects that carry these germs are also modified. The vectors or "bugs" have been designed to withstand harsher climatic ranges. Could the ticks also have been engineered to be smaller so it would be harder to detect them? I believe that genetic engineering is the reason why Lyme disease and possibly other microbes are spreading throughout the world....NOT because of global warming.
So, the question remains....where did the Lyme disease tick come from?
