The flow of science in this modern age is largely controlled by just six corporate publishing groups, which by calculated design have been gobbling up the journal market since at least the 1970s. And a new study out of Canada reveals that this mass consolidation of publishing power is, to a large extent, skewing what passes as scientific progress.

CDC Scientist: ‘We scheduled meeting to destroy vaccine-autism study documents’
A current Centers for Disease Control (CDC) senior scientist has made an unprecedented admission: he and his colleagues–he says– committed scientific misconduct to cover up a meaningful link between vaccines and autism in black boys.
Just as startling, the CDC scientist, Dr. William Thompson, says the study co-authors “scheduled a meeting to destroy documents related to the study. The remaining four co-authors all met and brought a big garbage can into the meeting room, and reviewed and went through all the hardcopy documents that we had thought we should discard, and put them into a huge garbage can.”
REP. Bill Posey Calling for an Investigation of the CDC's MMR reasearch fraud
Rep. Bill Posey brings former CDC researcher and now Whistleblower, Dr. Bill Thompson's letter regarding significant files they omitted and destroyed to avoid reporting any significant race effects in their study.
Recently headlines were made as 118 oncologist, of the 22,125 currently active in the United States, sounded the alarm publicly about the rising price of cancer drugs calling them “unsustainable.” This rebellious 118, or half of one percent, appear to be making a valid argument from within a tightly controlled and highly profitable cancer industry. Perhaps unaware to most oncologist and others within the mainstream medical system is that drug companies rely on fraud and half truths to circulate their products. In fact, most major drug companies have repeatedly shown that profit margins trump empathy, true healing and human life 8 days a week.
The following open letter by a PhD Immunologist completely demolishes the current California legislative initiative to remove all vaccine exemptions. That such a draconian and cynical state statute is under consideration in the ‘Golden State’ is as shocking as it is predictable. After all, it was mysteriously written and submitted shortly after the manufactured-in-Disneyland measles ‘outbreak’.
The media often feeds people misinformation about medical science. Leading the deception are the so-called skeptics who claim to be hard-headed scientists.
One leading promoter of skeptic “science” is the physician Ben Goldacre. I took note of Ben Goldacre when he nominated meta-analysis as his Moment of Genius for the BBC. The BBC were asking people to describe their favorite turning point in the history of science. His choice might be described as Goldacre’s Error. One of the most egregious recent mistakes in medical science, meta-analysis is a sham way of presenting subjective information. Meta-analysis makes it possible to select the available data and get the answer you want. Selecting data is one of the biggest errors a scientist can make.
Let’s use Ben Goldacre’s book Bad Science to show how this works. I consider this book well named – it is very bad science indeed.
Here is an example of how Goldacre misleads by selecting his data. He begins by giving a graph of increased life expectancy in the UK covering the previous century.
Pfizer Vice President Blows The Whistle & Tells The Truth About The Pharmaceutical Industry
“It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of the New England Journal of Medicine.” – Dr. Marcia Angell, a physician and longtime editor-in-chief of the New England Medical Journal (NEMJ) (source)
“The case against science is straightforward: much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue. Afflicted by studies with small sample sizes, tiny effects, invalid exploratory analyses, and flagrant conflicts of interest, together with an obsession for pursuing fashionable trends of dubious importance, science has taken a turn towards darkness.” – Dr. Richard Horton, the current editor-in-chief of the Lancet – considered to be one of the most well respected peer-reviewed medical journals in the world.

The Big Pharmaceutical Scam- 7 Shocking Truths About Big Pharma
by Luke Miller
There is an incredible amount of controversy surrounding pharmaceutical companies & the medicated culture that exists in a large portion of the western world today. With 70% of Americans taking at least one pharmaceutical drug &their largest growing marketing being children, it does beg the question, are these drugs the best solution? & are they safe? Firstly I would like to let you know where I stand as the person writing this article- I believe that a lot of pharmaceutical drugs are dangerous & an industry that makes money from us being sick should never be in charge of making us healthy. Pharmaceutical “companies” are just that- companies. So if there was a miracle tablet that made us all healthy & they released it they would lose trillions of dollars. So just from a business standpoint, it makes no sense for them to make us healthy. Health should always be a non-profit area, because while profit is not always a bad thing, the dynamics of the pharmaceutical industry will always breed corruption & I am not saying all pharmaceutical drugs are bad, I am saying that they may not be the best option.

"Long-term covert ops sometimes disguise themselves by claiming that the hidden cause of a problem is the cure. So it is with psychiatric drugs, like SSRI antidepressants, which push people into committing murder. In the aftermath of these killings, leaders call for expanded psychiatric screening---which will result in further prescription of those very same drugs." (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)
Police report the suspect in the Charleston church shooting, Dylann Roof, has been captured.
This is the latest in a string of crimes in which black-white conflict has been highlighted, pressed, argued, and used, for the purposes of: fanning flames of racial discord, exercising further gun control, and fatuously claiming that universal psychiatric screening and drugging is an answer.
Fear mongering. Media fabrications for sweeps’
week. A nation of scared sheep.
That’s what we’ve become. And nowhere is that more evident than in the Measles’ Vaccine debate (which interestingly enough shouldn’t even be a debate). Since 2003, there have been 0 measles deaths reported. You’d think that’d be enough evidence for the fear mongering parenthood of sheep to rest on, but that would make our lives much too easy.
