House quietly votes to require Pentagon to say if they released weaponized ticks

  • 1.5K Views

Well this isn't sitting very well, but let's not act surprised! The House quietly voted last week to finally require the Pentagon to notify Congress if they experimented with weaponizing some disease ridden ticks and if those ticks were released to the public. And to make it better, the House wants the Pentagon to tell them if the ticks were released, was it on purpose or by accident?

If it makes you feel better, those said ticks referenced date back to dates between 1950 and 1975, where they might have been experimenting with the insects as a form of biological weapon.

I have no idea what brought this up in government, nor what made them do it so quietly that we're all finding out now (oh, mass hysteria and it's tick season, that's probably it). Either way, this bizarre proposal is part of an amendment that was "adopted by voice vote July 11 during House debate on the fiscal 2020 defense authorization bill, which lawmakers passed the following day" according to a report by Roll Call.

Their report also stated that "the amendment, by New Jersey Republican Christopher H. Smith, says the inspector general “shall conduct a review of whether the Department of Defense experimented with ticks and other insects regarding use as a biological weapon between the years of 1950 and 1975."

Other insects? Good grief, Charlie Brown! What other bugs were they tinkering with back in the day? How many of those weaponized critters were out there multiplying and making super strong little baby bugs that would terrorize us? I have no idea, but I wonder if they all flew to Australia! I heard the bugs over there are like demons from another realm and everything over there is big enough to eat you.

Roll Call continues, discussing the situation with the possibly weaponized ticks floating around in our communities years ago. "If the answer is yes, then the IG must provide the House and Senate Armed Services committees with a report on the experiments’ scope and “whether any ticks or insects used in such experiments were released outside of any laboratory by accident or experiment design.”

Ready to freak out?

The amendment is their way of getting the Pentagon to either confirm or deny the reports about researchers in places like Fort Detrick, MD, and Plum Island, NY, who could have literally implanted diseases into the insects to teach themselves about biological weapons. Apparently they were also researching about using the insects to "disseminate biological agents."


The report mentions that former President Richard Nixon actually banned the United States government from researching biological weapons back in 1969, but that doesn't mean it actually stopped (there's always secrets). In fact, "research into protecting U.S. military personnel from such agents may have continued, Smith said in an interview Monday.

A book called “Bitten,” published this year, makes the case that the Defense Department research occurred and hints at a possible connection between the experiments and the spread of maladies such as Lyme disease, which is borne by ticks.

To Smith and other advocates of the Pentagon IG report, studying the past may provide data that can help stem the spread of Lyme disease in the future."

I just can't wait to see if Trump will start tweeting about weaponized ticks.

Imagine how funny that will be.

Ouch, hold on, something just bit me.
