Lyme Terror: Disease Officially Listed As A Threat From Terrorists

Lyme Terror: Disease Officially Listed As A Threat From Terrorists

Have you ever heard of the TACDA? It stands for “The American Civil Defense Foundation?”

TACDA is the acronym for the American Civil Defence Association, a very important agency during our war on terrorists.  In one of the documents on their web site at, there are instructions on how to prepare for both chemical and biological attacks; instructions we should all be aware of.
For example they recommend which are the most useful antibiotics and medicines to keep in each home for emergency purposes, also a list of the biological threats to be prepared for, and out of only 9 such diseases/pathogens, Lyme is number 8.

Let me write this again; out of only 9 biological threats the TACDA consider a threat to be prepared for and Lyme is number eight!  For more detailed information on the list go to:

Page 9 of the pdf lists, in this order, the organisms which US citizens are advised to prepare for: plague, anthrax, brucellosis, tularemia,
cholera, Q fever, glanders, Lyme disease and typhoid.

The mission of TACDA is to provide education, products and resources that empower American citizens with a comprehensive understanding of reasonable preparedness strategies and techniques; promoting a self-reliant, pro-active approach to protecting themselves, their families and their communities in the event of Nuclear, Biological, Chemical or other man-made and natural

Looking at TACDA’s website it’s easy to see that they are a well-respected group of people. The board of directors is made up of prestigious doctors,  engineers and advisers to the US government.

Such people as Dr. Gerald L. Looney: a native of Bluefield, West Virginia and a graduate of the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and the Harvard School of Public Health. He has recently retired as medical director of the Boeing Company Military Transport Division (C-17 Program in Long Beach, CA) and Associate Clinical Professor of Medicine/Occupational Health at the University of California, Irvine (UCI) College of Medicine.  And Dr Gary Marlin Sandquist, a retired US Naval Reserve Commander who has served as technical consultant to industry, universities, state and federal government agencies, and many other technical organisations.

He has also contributed to the scientific and technical communities with more than 600 publications in nuclear science, engineering, energy, health physics, and environmental sciences.

Also, Bronius Cikotas, who has 38 years experience working for the DOD, on nuclear weapons effects, threats, systems and infrastructure
vulnerabilities, mitigation techniques and the development of various systems to deal with various threats.   As an expert witness, he testified before Congressman Saxton’s panel on terrorism.   He has briefed and served in an advisory capacity at all levels of Government, National Security Council Staff, White House Military Office, White House Communications Agency, The President’s Office of Science and Technology Planning, and the Joint Staff.

Perhaps the Department of Defense will apply the necessary pressure to deal with the horrific disease that we and our loved ones suffer with every day.

These are highly qualified men and women who have evaluated many various threats and have selected these ten as the most likely to be prepared for; but perhaps they are too late.

    Jenna, I just want to make sure I am getting g the full text of your bog posts and articles or what the heck is happening. The problem is each article ends and it is obvious there should be more printed to read that I do not receive. For example, an article ends with your text stating, ” continue reading here” and then there is nothing, no clickable links or anything, just blank. What am I doing wrong? Help me outif you can please! Thanks so much, Vicki

      Vicki – I think the problem has to do with the older posts that I haven’t fixed yet. If you go to a post on the blog, and there is a picture at the beginning, then it has been fixed and updated. If not, the information and formatting is all garbled. It may take me awhile to get all 700 articles fixed. But I am working as fast as I can. Thanks so much for your patience! (If you hadn’t heard – I had all my websites, blogs and backups destroyed by a hacker! Stress is NOT good for Lyme!)

    thanks for doing this site Jenna-the more people now what is happening the better. It is really terrible what governments/scientists do to unsuspecting citezens. Have you read the research by Prof Donald Scott and Prof Garth Nicolson (GWS) horror stories. Also a book called ‘Dr Mary’s Monkey’, by Edward T Haslem-will open your eyes-bought 4!
    Regards, Jacqui
