Robert Charles Gallo (born March 23, 1937)
Genesis Chapter 4
8Cain said to his brother Abel, “Let us go out in the field.” When they were in the field, Cain attacked his brother Abel and killed him.
9Then the LORD asked Cain, Where is your brother Abel? He answered, “I do not know. Am I my brother’s keeper?”
10God then said: What have you done? Your brother’s blood cries out to me from the ground!
11Now you are banned from the ground that opened its mouth to receive your brother’s blood from your hand.
12If you till the ground, it shall no longer give you its produce. You shall become a constant wanderer on the earth.

My search for a possible Litton Bionetics connection to Morgellons and Chem Trails has led me to some very dark places and persons, indeed.
Namely, to Robert Charles Gallo (born March 23, 1937).
This is all very new to me, at this point I am just gathering information.
Also, I’ll include some more tidbits on the Book of 528 and the Love Frequency.
… at this time their activity was more focused on creating various cancers and carcinogenic viruses that could infect humans. [9-11]
From this work, I also realized, Gallo was actually cloning simian monkey viruses as early as 1970. So allegations that he had cloned Montagnier’s virus were buffeted by the fact that he had over a decade of practice in the procedure. Another example of Gallo’s work in creating new viruses to cause cancer in humans was published for the benefit of the NAS. Here Gallo and company examined the activity of the special AIDS-linked DNA polymerase enzyme in normal versus acute immature leukaemic lymph cells, that is, lymphoblasts.
To do so, they evaluated the single stranded “70S RNA retrovirus” found in chickens, which caused prominent features of AIDS, including WBC dysfunction, sarcomas, progressive wasting, and death (see fig. 6.5).  Gallo and his team injected this chicken virus RNA into human WBCs to determine if the cells were prompted to produce proteins and new viruses called for by the viral RNA.13
Another Gallo team evaluated the human cancer-causing effects of the single-stranded 70S RNA reverse transcriptase enzyme-a genetic catalyst essentially identical to the one found in HIV. They used cat leukemia viruses (FELV) and Mason-Pfizer monkey viruses to deliver these carcinogens to normal human lymphocytes.  I instantly realized that this work foreshadowed the observation made ten years later by the CDC’s chief AIDS researcher, Don Francis, who noted the “laundry list” of feline leukemia-like diseases associated with AIDS. 
Had Francis known about this early work? I considered it most conceivable that he would have. Other Gallo publications detailed the steps involved in creating immune-system-destroying-cancer-causing viruses by adapting monkey, rat, and bird leukemia and tumor viruses for experimental use in a human (NC-37) cell line. 16
One Gallo team discussed the synthesis of new RNA tumor viruses induced by 5-iodo-2′-deoxyuridine (IdU), a constituent of RNA in rodent cell cultures, and noted that chemical treatment might be used to halt the reverse transcriptase-linked viral reproduction cycle.  They were apparently looking for a cure for AIDS-like symptoms as early as 1972. Then I read a Gallo team discussion in 1973, which concerned the origin of the RD 114 cat-human virus. “It can always be argued,” they wrote, that a virus that jumped species would be expected to have foreign protein markers, that is, antigens, that differ “from the antigen found on the viruses of known” origin. 
So if Gallo and his coworkers had synthesized HIV for military or medical purposes from various animal virus components, I realized, it would be difficult if not impossible to prove. Finally, in another report published in the ‘Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences,’ Gallo and associates proclaimed they had isolated a virus-like particle from human acute, that is, quick-acting, leukemic WBCs.
This particle, they noted, has a specific density of 1.16-1.17 g/ml, which allowed it to be repeatedly recovered without being destroyed by physical handling. Moreover, it was capable of producing the principal rapidly growing cancers seen in AIDS, including leukemias, sarcomas, and carcinomas.  In conclusion, I learned that Gallo and his group of researchers created numerous AIDS-like viruses for more than a decade before Luc Montagnier announced the discovery of LA V.

Dr. Robert B. Strecker, M.D.,Ph.D.
[So I questioned Strecker:]
LEN: Now when I look back at the research literature, at least in the Index Medicus, Montagnier did not have too many publications in this field [in the early 1970s], whereas Gallo had been churning out the publications.
ROBERT: Except that Montagnier had worked with Gallo! 
LEN: They did?
ROBERT: Yeah, they were in the same [building] or on the same hallway.
LEN: At the NCI?
ROBERT: Yes! … Montagnier was over here… around 1965 or so; he and Gallo were working together… They’re all connected.
[I had not considered the possibility that Gallo and Montagnier had known about each other's work prior to 1978 as Shilts documented.]
ROBERT: And then when… Donald Francis and what’s his name? When they published that cat house experiment, and questioned, “Is it possible that there’s a human retrovirus similar to this one.” Of course [there was]! Gallo had already isolated HTLV-III… And his office was only twenty-five feet away.
[I sat up on the edge of my seat taken by the allegation. 'The Band' presented Francis as somewhat of a hero during his alleged conflict with Gallo and other NCI administrators over withholding support for AIDS research. I suspected he knew about Gallo's early research, and Strecker was now alleging the same.]
LEN: You mean Don Francis from the CDC? Francis was originally at the NCI before he went to the CDC?
ROBERT: Yes… He was working there right next to Gallo. And that’s when they did their famous cat house experiments showing that the cats were transferring the viruses back and forth amongst themselves. And then they wrote this article that said, “It is possible…”  I mean, they knew or else they didn’t talk for the whole time. They knew that there was a similar virus out there growing in human beings… Gallo had already isolated it, and their labs were twenty-five feet apart.
LEN: Now what I seem to have dug up in the ‘WHO Chronicle,’ is that the first American laboratory to be sent any of the viral strains from which they began was the NCI 
ROBERT: Yeah. Well, I think that’s a lie. I mean, I think the viruses were growing in the basement of the NCI (National Cancer Institute ) all along… Do you know about the meeting between Gallo, Montagnier, and Salk?
ROBERT: Oh my God! Anyway, a year or two ago, and this is documented in ‘Science’ or somewhere, Gallo, Montagnier, and Salk met in San Diego to write up the history – the official history – of their discoveries. 
LEN: Salk? The polio virus Salk?
ROBERT: Yeah, they met down there and made up a story… And I personally believe that virtually everything they wrote was bull… We [referring again to his brother and other colleagues in The Strecker Group] understood that they used to meet like two or three times a week and decide what to tell next – how to package it, how to discuss it. In other words, they already knew everything because they’d been working on it since the early 1970s. They basically knew they had the same stuff [retroviruses and reagents] because if you look at what happened, their discoveries were too quick…
LEN: OK. Explain this now. Why did Gallo in 1980 become so frustrated that he couldn’t keep the [T-lymph] cells alive, so allegedly he quit.
LEN: According to Shilts, Gallo dropped out of the AIDS race for about two years.
ROBERT: I don’t believe that either. I don’t know what he was doing in that time frame, but he was still working on AIDS; there’s no doubt about that.
LEN: According to Shilts, Gallo had only about 10 percent of his lab going on the AIDS problem. He said that Gallo stonewalled researchers throughout the world [by] not providing the antibodies, not providing the cell lines that were required to identify and cultivate the virus.
ROBERT: Yeah… Why would they want to give things away when they knew what was going on already, and it was a matter of Gallo and Montagnier deciding who was going to tell what when… Do you know the story about the patent? 
LEN: Gallo ripped Montagnier off.
ROBERT: Yeah. That’s what brought the split. You see we [the United States] tried to take all the money.
LEN: Well, that’s what they’ve done.
ROBERT: Yes. Yes. Yes. So that’s what got the French so angry. And what was Montagnier going to do? Come out and say, “Well, we lied. We’ve been doing this work all along. We’re all crooks.” So that’s, in my opinion, what happened. Anybody with any scientific credibility knew that Gallo stole the virus if that’s what they were talking about because they [HLTV-III and LAV] were identical… But I think that the big war was really a war over money.
LEN: Oh, for sure.
ROBERT: Yeah. Anybody with any sense knew; I mean retrovirologists laugh about it because they knew that Gallo stole it. It was only the press that was blind.
LEN: But how do YOU reconcile the first comment that they all had these things and then later that he [Gallo] cloned it [Montagnier's LAV]?
ROBERT: They had them, and you can grow the virus in perpetuity if you keep constantly changing their cell line as it kills it. That doesn’t mean you can grow it in any quantity. In other words, every lab in the world – and these were all over the world, they weren’t just here and in France; they were in Germany and Russia and everywhere – [and] a lot of people had the [human] cell lines, and they had the cattle cell lines [in the early 1970s]…
And we know they had, in 1976, BVV, bovine visna virus, growing in brain tissue in Brussels because we have papers on that. One paper said that the AIDS[-like] virus would infect [human] brain tissue. And the guy even wrote, “Is it possible that this is a cause of slow virus disease of man?”  So, I mean, they were everywhere.
 I was unable to find direct evidence that Montagnier had worked side-by-side with Gallo at the NCI. However, I located ample evidence that the two traveled in some of the same scientific circles, and attended many of the same cancer virus conferences. It is clear they were aware of each others’ research from the late 1960s. Also, Montagnier published a report that suggested links between LAV/HTLV-III and the bovine leukemia virus. See: Alizon M and Montagnier L. Relationship of AIDS to other retroviruses. Nature 1985;313:743.
 Strecker’s comments about the “famous cat house experiments,” wherein Don Francis and Robert Gallo allegedly knew it was possible for mutant forms of feline leukemia virus (FeLV) to jump species to humans, are supported by parallel presentations made by the researchers during the same Cold Spring Harbor conference in 1980 See: Gutensohn N, Essex M, Francis DP and Hardy, Jr. WD.

 Strecker was also accurate in reporting that Salk and colleagues at The Salk Institute had been researching RNA and DNA retroviruses including the simian monkey virus (SV40) with financial support from the NCI and the West German Max-Planck Society. Thus, Salk quite plausibly participated, as Strecker alleged, in writing up the history of AIDS virus research, and in making “up a story.” See: Tonegawa S, Walter G and Dulbecco R.

We found that 818 Gulf War veterans diagnosed with ALS from three nations had systemic mycoplasrnal infections.
We were aided in this examination by data that we collected on families of Gulf War veterans where there was a high in- cidence of Autism in their children .

If your god is science, then there’s no hope for you. Not in this lifetime, anyway.
But if you are preparing to meet your Maker, then it’s never too late.
My prayer for Cain is the same prayer I have for all God’s children, especially myself.
Turn around and see the Face of God.
It is you that turned away. He is Ever Constant.
