J. Giambrone

We are in dire straits with an all-out assault on science, evidence and reason coming out of the White House all day long, every day now. The direct attack on science is part of a much-wider trend.

Science is imperfect and the truth has no billionaire backer fighting for it. The deck is stacked in the other direction.

FUD

Fear Uncertainty Doubt:

Fear, uncertainty and doubt (often shortened to FUD) is a disinformation strategy used in sales, marketing, public relations, talk radio, politics, religious organizations, and propaganda. FUD is generally a strategy to influence perception by disseminating negative and dubious or false information and a manifestation of the appeal to fear.

…By spreading questionable information about the drawbacks of less well known products, an established company can discourage decision-makers from choosing those products over its own, regardless of the relative technical merits.

President FUD is the living embodiment of these…

Vets felt shock and anger when they found out they were duped into doing “the Saudis’ dirty work,” as one put it.

Vets say they were duped into helping Saudi Arabia dodge payouts to 9/11 victims

Every American needs to know what is already public about Saudi government sponsorship of the September 11th attacks. They wouldn’t be “duped” into such stupidity if they simply read:

9/11 & 28 Pages of Treason

 



I made the hypnotized army in my novel TRANSFIXION a type of “dupe.” That is the slang pejorative used by the resisters.  They call them “dupes,” and “puppets” and similar smears as part of their battlefield banter. No accident.

Could this be why nobody believes the corporate media anymore and most despise it?

“With some of the country’s most influential trade groups and global corporations as clients, we run many of the major op-ed campaigns in the U.S. We place roughly 3,000 op-eds per year.”

107 Nobel Laureate Attack on Greenpeace Traced Back to Biotech PR Operators

Washington Press Club hosted a hit job on Greenpeace the other day…

“Some NGOs were invited: Really?  Why not Greenpeace—the subject of this campaign?”

Nor was the security person just anyone. Schwab and Cray recognised him as Jay Byrne. Byrne is the former head of corporate communications for Monsanto (1997-2001).

 

“Golden Rice” Bullshit Claims Debunked:

This latest PR assault by Monsanto et al. demonises activists for allegedly stopping the introduction of the miracle cure, Golden Rice. This claim is nonsense, as Greenpeace and other activists have no regulatory power in the real world.

Their “Golden Rice” simply doesn’t fucking work…

Genetically modified Golden Rice falls short on lifesaving promises

“The simple fact is that after 24 years of research and breeding, Golden Rice is still years away from being ready for release.”

‘I Lied About Toxic Chemicals for Exxon, DuPont, and Their Lobbyists’

The council’s credibility is crucial as it currently works with a bipartisan group in the Senate to rewrite the law governing the regulation of toxic chemicals. The bill to reform the Toxic Substances Control Act passed a Senate committee recently by a vote of 15 to 5 and last week picked up 14 new senators as co-sponsors, virtually assuring it can pass the Senate.

Monsanto knob, Robert T Fraley, Tweets:

“Why do people doubt science?”

And here’s the long answer…

Science in the Corporate Interest

“The main reason some multinationals prefer GM technologies over the many alternatives is that GM offers more lucrative ways to control intellectual property and global supply chains. To sideline open discussion of these issues, related interests are now trying to deny the many uncertainties and suppress scientific diversity. This undermines democratic debate – and science itself.” (see here)

Biology Fortified, Inc. misleads the public on GMO safety

Assembling big lists of studies supposedly providing overwhelming evidence of the safety of GMOs has become common practice by GMO proponents. GENERA is just the latest in a long series of such lists. The success of the tactic depends on the reading public failing to examine the actual studies and seeing what they say.

“However, this review suffers from serious defects, such as:

  • classifying relatively short studies as long-term, even though they only follow the animals for a fraction of their natural lifespan
  • including animal production studies designed to examine parameters such as meat or milk production, which do not look for health effects
  • including studies on fish and birds, which have a different digestive system and metabolism from those of humans and are not relevant to assessing human health risks
  • including studies in which the sample sizes are too small to draw any conclusions
  • including a study in which animals were removed from the experiment for undefined reasons and replaced (naturally this study concluded the GMO was safe!)
  • using unscientific double standards in dismissing the findings of studies that find toxic effects on the grounds of methodological weaknesses, while accepting at face value the findings of studies that conclude safety, even though they suffer from the same methodological weaknesses.”
