    Barack Obama and the FDR-Great Depression Mythby Michael Fumento (more by this author) Posted 11/26/2008 ET The cover of Time magazine has Barack Obama photoshopped into Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s famous convertible, complete with oval-shaped glasses and cigarette holder held between the teeth. “The NEW New Deal,” The cover reads. Surely many who voted for Obama saw him as potentially the new FDR, the man to lead us out of hard economic times. But they’ve been misled, for even FDR wasn’t FDR. He is a quasi-mythical creature who not only didn’t end the Great Depression but probably greatly prolonged the...

    A MYTH THAT KILLS: AIDS INDUSTRY FEEDS ON FEAR July 3, 2008 -- THE Senate is near to pass ing a massive $50 billion Emergency Plan for HIV/ AIDS Relief - a bill whose priorities are based on myth, just like virtually all anti-AIDS efforts worldwide. The world's top AIDS bureaucrat recently admitted the truth: "It is very unlikely that there will be a heterosexual epidemic" outside Africa, Kevin de Cock, director of the World Health Organization, told London's Independent newspaper. His bosses at the United Nations issued an official denial - but couldn't truly challenge his science. The effort...

    In retrospect, you knew there would be trouble when you put the people responsible for the Space Shuttle program in charge of tracking U.S. temperatures. So perhaps it shouldnt have come as a big surprise when it was revealed that NASA committed a bit of an oopsie regarding data constantly used by the mainstream media and other global warming proponents.

    "Religious Right Cited False Report to Combat Embryonic Stem Cell Legislation." So reads the lede of a thread (an Internet posting followed by commentaries) of a group called "DEFCON: Campaign to Defend the Constitution." Translation: DEFCON hates the religious right and anything the religious right likes. If the religious right liked ice cream, DEFCON would hate it. So DEFCON hates alternatives to embryonic stem cells no matter how valuable those alternatives are in treating and curing human disease. In this case, if anybody took DEFCON seriously it could be sued for libel. The paper in question, presented by Catherine Verfaillie...

    Another source of useful stem cells has been found and the media and the cloning crowd are trying keep it quiet. While the Democratic-controlled House voted 253-174 to expand federal funding for embryonic stem-cell research, it fell far short of the 290 votes needed to override a virtually guaranteed presidential veto. A tragedy for victims of everything from Alzheimer's to warts? Not at all. Each year there are stunning breakthroughs with adult stem cells, and 2007 has already brought its first. Adult stem cells cure and treat more 70 diseases and are involved in almost 1,300 human clinical trials....

    The fierce public debate over killing human embryos to create lines of embryonic stem cells is over; tout fini; THE END.

    The space shuttle program would seem to have nothing to do Sen. Majority Leader Bill Frists call for dramatically expanded federal aid for embryonic stem cell research, but there are striking parallels..... ......Yet if the shuttle has had little use, ESCs so far have had none. Theyve never been tested on humans. And like the shuttle, there are far superior alternatives. Culled from numerous body tissues, these are generally called adult stem cells. Yet ASCs are routinely downplayed or ignored precisely because ESCs, like the shuttle, are of little value to the human race but are tremendously valuable for individual...

When military public affairs asked where I wanted to be embedded, I told them, "the redder, the better" (red means hostile). So they packed me off to eastern Ramadi with the 1st Battalion, 506th Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault). ---snip--- To most of the media, Baghdad is where Iraq begins and ends.

    Sciences Stem Cell Scam By Michael Fumento Thursday, July 20, 2006 Embryonic stem cells (ESCs) receive tremendous media attention, with oft-repeated claims that they have the potential to cure virtually every disease known. Yet there are spoilsports, self included, who point out that they have yet to even make it into a human clinical trial. This is even as alternatives adult stem cells (ASCs) from numerous places in the body as well as umbilical cord blood and placenta are curing diseases here and now and have been doing so for decades. And that makes ESC advocates very, very...

    Secondhand smoke debate over. Thats the message from the Surgeon Generals office, delivered by a sycophantic media. The claim is that the science has now overwhelmingly proved that smoke from others cigarettes can kill you. Actually, debate over simply means: If you have your doubts, shut up! But you definitely should have doubts over the new Surgeon Generals report, a massive 727-page door stop. Like many massive reports on controversial issues, its probably designed that way so nobody (especially reporters on deadline) will want to or have time to read beyond the executive summary. That includes me; if I had...

There is no better place to observe American troops and the fledgling Iraqi army in combat. That's why I came. When military public affairs asked where I wanted to be embedded, I told them, "the redder, the better" (red means hostile).

    Perhaps youve heard of the infamous Bridge to Nowhere, Alaska Republican Rep. Don Young efforts to allocate $315 million in federal funds to connect one tiny island in his state with an even tinier island of only 50 people. Well, hes now been joined by Texas Republican Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison. She has allotted a massive $75 million from taxpayers into the Veterans Administration (VA) budget, with the dictate that every cent go to a Texas advocacy scientist and his institution to study a non-existent illness. The alleged illness is Gulf War Syndrome (GWS), and the beneficiary of Hutchinsons taxpayer-funded...

    This just in! New study shows little kids watch lots of TV! Yeah, I know youre Shocked, shocked! What may surprise you, though, is the extent to which these children are being exposed to television and why. Kids arent just gravitating to the tube; the one-eyed monster is being used as a babysitter by parents who think theyre too busy for them and by folks who see giving a child his own tube as a way of allowing them to gorge on TV. According to the latest Media Family report conducted by the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation: * While...

    Al Anbar Province, Iraq I ARRIVED AT CAMP FALLUJA in Iraq's Anbar Province by Blackhawk at 4 a.m. on the morning of April 13. No sooner had I lain down in my bunk than I heard the "thump, thump, thump" of outgoing artillery, five rounds in all. I later learned they were illumination rounds, probably called in to light up the area around the Iraqi Army's Observation Post 3 (OP3) in Karma, just northeast of Falluja. It was, I was told, the largest enemy action in the area in the last eight months. Click here for the rest of the...
