The Corruption of Science: Pressure for positive results puts science under threat, study shows

© The Dot Connector Magazine
Scientific research may be in decline across the globe because of growing pressures to report only positive results, new analysis suggests.

A study by the University of Edinburgh examined more than 4,600 scientific research papers published between 1990 and 2007 and found a steady decline in studies in which the findings contradicted scientific hypotheses.

Papers reporting null or negative findings are in principle as useful as positive ones, but they attract fewer readers and citations, so scientific journals tend to reject them.

It is acknowledged among scientists that this problem might be worsening, because competition in science is growing and jobs and grants are given to scientists who publish frequently in high-ranking journals. Many researchers, therefore, have speculated that scientists will increasingly pursue predictable outcomes and produce positive results through re-interpretation, selection or even manipulation of data.

Comment: It's obvious to anyone with two neurons firing that our society is in a very dire state. Lies are pervasive in every aspect of our lives, and science is not an exception. Read the latest issue of the Dot Connector magazine to understand to what extent greed, ego, power machinations and other psychopathic influences manifest themselves in science and in scientific community, and how we learned to accept the corruption to our own collective detriment.


Afghanistan: Bomb at US Base Reminder of Raging Afghan War

Mohammad Mubarez, an Afghan cleric, prays during an event to mark the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attack on the United States, at the U.S. embassy in Kabul, Afghanistan Sunday, Sept. 11, 2011
Kabul - A powerful Taliban truck bomb that wounded 77 American soldiers and killed five Afghans outside a combat outpost served as a reminder on Sunday that 10 years after the Sept. 11 attacks, nearly 100,000 U.S. troops are still fighting a war that shows no signs of slowing down.

No U.S. troops were killed when the massive bomb loaded on a truck filled with firewood exploded Saturday night just outside the gates of Combat Outpost Sayed Abad in eastern Wardak province. NATO said a protective barrier at the entrance absorbed most of the force of the blast, although the area outside the base was hit hard.

Officials said the Afghans killed included a policeman and four civilians, including a 3-year-old girl. Another 17 Afghans - 14 civilians and three policemen - were wounded. The provincial governor said the blast was so powerful it damaged about 100 shops in the nearby Sayed Abad bazaar.

Although Saturday's truck bombing occurred outside the base, the numbers of injuries it caused was significant. Combat outposts usually house about 200 troops.

The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack. Earlier, they had issued a statement vowing to fight until all foreign troops leave. The radical Islamic movement, which gave shelter to Osama bin Laden and al-Qaida when it ruled Afghanistan, also stressed that it had no role in the Sept. 11 attacks, and it accused the U.S. of using them as a pretext to invade the country.

Comment: There is just so much propaganda in this story that it is difficult to deal with line by line. Al-CIAda is a U.S., Israeli sponsored false flag terror organization. Bin-Laden was framed and known to have been under watch on Sept. 10th, the day before America was attacked.

Here are a few nuances a person might consider about 9-11, S-Elections in the U.S., how propaganda is made by the media and many wide ranging cover-ups across the whole political spectrum. You might also notice Rice and Powell say Saddam is NOT a threat to anyone in early 2001.

Obama in tizzy over embassy takeover

US President Barack Obama has called on Egypt to protect the Israeli embassy in Cairo, expressing "great concern" over the storming of the embassy by Egyptian demonstrators.

According to a White House statement on Friday, Obama urged Egypt "to honor its international obligations to safeguard the security of the Israeli embassy," AFP reported.

"The president expressed his great concern about the situation at the embassy, and the security of the Israelis serving there," the statement said.

Obama also held a telephone conversation with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

"The president and the prime minister agreed to stay in close touch until the situation is resolved," the White House statement added.

The Israeli ambassador to Egypt, Yitzhak Levanon, flew out of Cairo a few hours after demonstrators stormed the Israeli embassy.

Meanwhile, Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak called US Defense Secretary Leon Panetta in the early hours of Saturday morning Tel Aviv time and urged Washington to help protect the Israeli embassy.

9/11 for Dummies: Top Five 9/11 Facts Everyone Should Know

Using Common Cents and Telling the 9/11 Facts

© Unknown
In speaking with my fellow Americans about 9/11 ten years after the fact, I have found that many, sadly and unfortunately, have either forgotten what happened that terrible day or have purchased the propaganda delivered to them by their own "trusted" main stream US media.

What especially concerns me is the progressive dummying down of our youth; specifically those under 20 years old who either hardly remember that day as it happened or where not even born yet. These people must rely on what is told to them by "trusted" sources. In other words, our American youth are getting an even larger dose of propaganda then we did shortly after the event and it's troubling.

US Congressman Witnessed European Special Forces Beheading Libyans

Walter Fauntroy, Feared Dead in Libya, Returns Home -- Guess Who He Saw Doing the Killing?

Former U.S. Congressman Walter Fauntroy, who recently returned from a self-sanctioned peace mission to Libya, said he went into hiding for about a month in Libya after witnessing horrifying events in Libya's bloody civil war -- a war that Fauntroy claims is backed by European forces.

Fauntroy's sudden disappearance prompted rumors and news reports that he had been killed.

In an interview inside his Northwest D.C. home last week, the noted civil rights leader, told the Afro that he watched French and Danish troops storm small villages late at night beheading, maiming and killing rebels and loyalists to show them who was in control.

"'What the hell' I'm thinking to myself. I'm getting out of here. So I went in hiding," Fauntroy said.

The rebels told Fauntroy they had been told by the European forces to stay inside. According to Fauntroy, the European forces would tell the rebels, "'Look at what you did.' In other words, the French and Danish were ordering the bombings and killings, and giving credit to the rebels.

"The truth about all this will come out later," Fauntroy said.

Another political psychopath outs himself: On eve of tenth anniversary, US Congressman Eric Cantor insists on massive cuts for 9/11 first responders


Eric Cantor, political psychopath
Yesterday, President Obama requested $5.1 billion to provide disaster relief to communities struggling to recover from recent hurricanes, floods, earthquakes and wildfires. The request includes $500 million in emergency funds FEMA needs to continue to operate effectively through the end of September.

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, whose home state of Virginia was hit by an earthquake and Hurricane Irene, is demanding more partisan spending cuts in exchange for approving the request. From Politico:
But a spokesperson for House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) signaled late Friday that the GOP is likely to insist on offsets for the $500 million in emergency funds Obama requested for 2011...

"The House has passed $1 billion in disaster relief funds that is fully offset, which we will look to move as quickly as possible."

Anti-Defamation League: Speaking the Truth about 9/11 is Anti-Semitic

Being labeled an "anti-Semite" is an honor these days. All it means is someone who is against the Jewish criminal gang that dominates the global power structure. In our Orwellian world, "anti-Semite" and "American patriot" are actually synonymous. Simply accurately describing the most influential faction of the crime gang that sits atop the global power structure, which controls the United States government, media, and banking system, is anti-Semitic according to a lot of people, and that's fine with me. We need to continue to point out that these are the same people who did 9/11, and if that's anti-Semitic, so be it.

Stating these obvious facts is not the most politically correct thing to do, but it needs to be said if we are ever going to regain control of our country and our future. I get e-mail updates from the Anti-Defamation League, and in the latest e-mail I came across this article entitled, "Decade of Deceit: Anti-Semitic 9/11 Conspiracy Theories 10 Years Later."

Being the raging anti-Semite that I am, I was really interested in this article. In the introduction, the ADL laments the fact that people actually know who pulled off the FALSE FLAG/INSIDE JOB on 9/11:
In the ten years since the September 11 terrorist attacks on America, conspiracy theories surrounding the attacks have become an entrenched propaganda industry. These assaults on memory and history attempt to place blame for the attacks on sources other than Al Qaeda, such as the U.S. government. Prominent among such 9/11 conspiracy theories are those that make the anti-Semitic claim that Jews - whether Israeli, American, or both-- were involved in planning and executing the attacks. This anti-Semitic faction is only a part of the so-called "9/11 truth movement," yet it is vocal and pervasive, particularly on the Internet.
That's right, it's anti-Semitic to state the fact that the only people actually arrested on 9/11 were Jewish spies and military operatives directly from Israel.


Senior British police officer sacked for saying greatest terror threat comes from within the state

© richplanet.net
Tony Farrell, 'Principal Intelligence Analyst' For South Yorkshire Police (the UK's 18th largest force), was sacked in July 2010 for submitting in his annual review that the major threat of terrorism against British people came from within the UK state apparatus rather than from Islamic fundamentalists. Mr Farrell had worked in this position for twelve years and his previous work record was, his employers admitted, 'impeccable'.

However, in this 2010 report he asserted that both 7/7 and 9/11 were 'inside jobs'.

One can understand the dilemma this posed for South Yorkshire Police.

One can understand his being sacked. Tony himself well understood that this would almost certainly be the outcome of his actions.

Earlier this year an Employment Tribunal upheld SYP's decision when they rejected TF's claim against them for 'unfair dismissal'.
