American Samizdat

Sir Richard Doll, the celebrated epidemiologist who established that smoking causes lung cancer, was receiving a consultancy fee of $1,500 a day in the mid-1980s from Monsanto, then a major chemical company and now better known for its GM crops business.

While he was being paid by Monsanto, Sir Richard wrote to a royal Australian commission investigating the potential cancer-causing properties of Agent Orange, made by Monsanto and used by the US in the Vietnam war. Sir Richard said there was no evidence that the chemical caused cancer.

The priests are pederasts, the accountants are frauds a la Anderson Little, the journalists are mouthpieces for their corporate masters, the military are hired muscle for big oil, the cream of Bell Labs is at google doing the NSA's work "right", medical school drug trials are done in the pay of the "ethical" pharmaceuticals, who have hired the first string at the NIH while they remain at their government positions, and sundry scientists are all in the pay of whomever.

Looks like it's bound to get much worse before it gets better.
