Bush: Scientific Interference and Control

Politics is the art of preventing people from taking part in affairs which properly concern them.

Paul Valery (1871 - 1945), Tel Quel 2 (1943)

The nonprofit watchdog group Government Accountability found that the Bush Administration in hundreds of instances interfered with government scientists on reporting global warming reseach findings to the public. The watchdog group reviewed thousands of emails, memos and reports received through Freedom of Information Act. They also conducted interviews with scientist, staff, and
reporters ( http://www.whistleblower.org/doc/A/Atmosphere-of-Pressure.pdf).
The report will be release on march 28th before House Senate Committee.

The report further states that scientific evidence was deliberately kept from the public. Well it's the same old story now isn't it! The right to know as determined by the Neofascists in the White House. Control....Control....Control They wish to control every aspect and every detail. Does this sound familiar? From Orwell's 1984:

"Down in the street the wind flapped the torn poster to and fro, and the word INGSOC fitfully appeared and vanished. Ingsoc. The sacred principles of Ingsoc. Newspeak, doublethink, the mutability of the past. He felt as though he were wandering in the forests of the sea bottom, lost in a monstrous world where he himself was the monster. He was alone. The past was dead, the future was unimaginable. What certainty had he that a single human creature now living was on his side? And what way of knowing that the dominion of the Party would not endure for ever? Like an answer, the three slogans on the white face of the Ministry of Truth came back to him:




He took a twenty-five cent piece out of his pocket. There, too, in tiny clear lettering, the same slogans were inscribed, and on the other face of the coin the head of Big Brother. Even from the coin the eyes pursued you. On coins, on stamps, on the covers of books, on banners, on posters, and on the wrappings of a cigarette Packet -- everywhere. Always the eyes watching you and the voice enveloping you. Asleep or awake, working or eating, indoors or out of doors, in the bath or in bed -- no escape. Nothing was your own except the few cubic centimetres inside your skull."

What will it take to save this country from the vermin who now control it? How much longer can we take this? Every day, more and more revelations! Everyday more lies and the destruction of our Bill of Rights and Constitution. When will we wake up!
