Many historians “argue that since absolute truth must always elude the historian’s grasp, ‘evidence’ is inevitably nothing but a biased selection of suspect ‘facts.’ Worse yet, rather than dismissing the entire historical undertaking as impossible, these same people use their disdain for evidence as a license to propose all manner of politicized historical fantasies or appealing fictions on the grounds that these are just as ‘true’ as any other account.”
Excerpts of Key Corruption in Science News Articles in Media
This appears to be both alarming and worthy of public outcry.
Robert-Jan Smits, the European Union’s departing director-general of research, sets out his parting thoughts.
I am sorry that I couldn’t find a way to get all member states to invest more in science.
I also regret not having been able to embed science and innovation in EU agricultural policy, which is very conservative and hard to penetrate.
…we plan a European Innovation Council to support highly innovative companies, particularly start-ups.
I managed to persuade Eurostat, the EU’s statistical office, to classify R&D as investment rather than expenditure. This was a small but important psychological breakthrough that helped change mindsets.
If you are a top ability student, but white, especially white male, you have scant chance of being admitted to Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Columbia, Dartmouth, Cornell, Brown, Penn, Stanford, MIT, CalTech, Berkeley, or UCLA.
The reason whites cannot gain admission is that in the entirety of the Ivy league, Jews are over-represented, relative to the pool of high ability students, by 381%. High ability Asians are under-represented at 62%, and non-Jewish whites are most under-represented of all with a presence in the Ivy League of only 35% of their presence in the pool of high ability students.
Dear President & Professor Tickell,
I am a former US spy recommended for the Nobel Peace Prize in 2017, I urge you to take this message most seriously.
Kees van der Pijl your professor emeritus, is absolutely correct in his assertions with respect to 9/11 and the role of the Zionists. What he does not say is that 9/11 started as commercial insurance fraud in 1989 and was quickly converted by Dick Cheney, with the approval of George H. W. Bush, into a future false flag and terrorist event.
I generally ignore the Crap News Fake News media, but one hard fact — how many died in Puerto Rico as a direct result of the storm — is deliberately — with malice and knowledge of falsity — being mis-represented to the public. The President is right — the number is between 64 and (my worst case estimate) 100 — George Mason University (GMU) is full of shit — they have combined poor data, poor assumptions, and a poor model to speculate that close to 3.000 died. Bullshit. This is a media hit job funded by enemies of the President.

Frustrated with the slow transition toward open access (OA) in scientific publishing, 11 national funding organizations in Europe turned up the pressure today. As of 2020, the group, which jointly spends about €7.6 billion on research annually, will require every paper it funds to be freely available from the moment of publication. In a statement, the group said it will no longer allow the 6- or 12-month delays that many subscription journals now require before a paper is made OA, and it won’t allow publication in so-called hybrid journals, which charge subscriptions but also make individual papers OA for an extra fee.
