When Obama took office, he self-righteously proclaimed:
WASHINGTON – From tiny embryonic cells to the large-scale physics of global warming, President Barack Obama urged researchers on Monday to follow science and not ideology as he abolished contentious Bush-era restraints on stem-cell research. “Our government has forced what I believe is a false choice between sound science and moral values,” Obama declared as he signed documents changing U.S. science policy and removing what some researchers have said were shackles on their work.
“It is about ensuring that scientific data is never distorted or concealed to serve a political agenda — and that we make scientific decisions based on facts, not ideology,” Obama said.
Researchers said the new president’s message was clear: Science, which once propelled men to the moon, again matters in American life.
Lah dee dah, you Liar-in-Chief.
Despite the propaganda trumpeting the benefits that embryonic stem cells will bring to thousands of people suffering from Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s, and other crippling injuries and maladies, not one cure using human embryonic stem cells has been found during the more than 20 years scientists have been studying them.
On the other hand, hundreds of cures have already been effected using adult stem cells, and each week brings news of more cures or ameliorizations of injuries and diseases. Do No Harm: The Coalition of Americans for Research Ethics publishes frequent studies showing the failure of embryonic stem cell research to offer any cures — despite the vast sums poured into such research and the claims made by “leading” researchers — and the successes of adult stem cell research and research using morally obtained pluripotential stem cells.
A few years ago, the state of Californian pissed away $3 billion in embryonic stem cell research, because intelligent investors didn’t want to waste any of their own money. What happened? It was a total failure:
Supporters of the California Stem Cell Research and Cures Initiative, passed in 2004, held out hopes of imminent medical miracles that were being held up only by President Bush’s policy of not allowing federal funding of embryonic stem cell research (ESCR) beyond existing stem cell lines and which involved the destruction of embryos created for that purpose.
Five years later, ESCR has failed to deliver and backers of Prop 71 are admitting failure. The California Institute for Regenerative Medicine, the state agency created to, as some have put it, restore science to its rightful place, is diverting funds from ESCR to research that has produced actual therapies and treatments: adult stem cell research. It not only has treated real people with real results; it also does not come with the moral baggage ESCR does.
Bottom line. It was Great Satan OBAMA who was following ideology and not science. Not Bush. Bush was right; it was OBAMA who was pursuing ideology and calling it “science.”
As for global warming, let me just say “Climategate.” In a fitting capstone of years of fraud, we have in the very words of climate “scientists” admissions of falsifying data, of deliberately concealing evidence and destroying data, of knowingly using “tricks” to manipulate data and produce deceptive results, and of engaging in a corrupt pattern of destroying scientific opponents by any means necessary.
There is so much evidence proving that global warming, climate change, or whatever the propagandists are calling it these days, is a complete and utter fraud, that I’ve got more than fifty articles dealing with the subject.
Again, it was OBAMA who was pursuing ideology rather than science.
Another example of Obama totally perverting science and academia has been his incredible deception over his stimulus package. Obama literally created an entire new “understanding” of economics by claiming that his stimulus had “created or saved” jobs. But:
Harvard economics Professor Gregory Mankiw said, “there is no way to measure how many jobs are saved.” Allan Meltzer, professor of political economy at Carnegie Mellon University said “One can search economic textbooks forever without finding a concept called ‘jobs saved.’ It doesn’t exist for good reason: how can anyone know that his or her job has been saved?”
And the massive lies Obama told to impose his ObamaCare on the American people have simply been stunning.
The facts don’t matter. Truth doesn’t matter. Reality doesn’t matter. Only naked partisan ideology matters.
But the case against Obama as a massive hypocrite, liar and fraud is more slam dunk than that. Obama has been caught clearly doing the very thing he so pompously demonized his predecessor for doing:
Govt’s handling of science on oil spill questioned
The oil spill that damaged the Gulf of Mexico’s reefs and wetlands is also threatening to stain the Obama administration’s reputation for relying on science to guide policy.

WASHINGTON — The oil spill that damaged the Gulf of Mexico’s reefs and wetlands is also threatening to stain the Obama administration’s reputation for relying on science to guide policy.
Academics, environmentalists and federal investigators have accused the administration since the April spill of downplaying scientific findings, misrepresenting data and most recently misconstruing the opinions of experts it solicited.
The latest complaint from scientists comes in a report by the Interior Department’s inspector general, which concluded that the White House edited a drilling safety report in a way that made it falsely appear that scientists and experts supported the administration’s six-month ban on new deep-water drilling. The AP obtained the report early Wednesday.
The inspector general said the editing changes by the White House resulted “in the implication that the moratorium recommendation had been peer reviewed.” But it hadn’t been. Outside scientists were asked only to review new safety measures for offshore drilling.
“There are really only a few people that know what they are talking about” on offshore drilling,” said Ford Brett, managing director of Petroskills, a Tulsa, Okla.-based petroleum training organization. “The people who make this policy do not … so don’t misrepresent me and use me for cover,” said Brett, one of seven experts who reviewed the report.
Last month, staff for the presidential oil spill commission said that the White House’s budget office delayed publication of a scientific report that forecast how much oil could reach the Gulf’s shores. Federal scientists initially used a volume of oil that did not account for the administration’s various cleanup efforts, but the government ultimately cited smaller amounts of oil.
The same report said that President Barack Obama’s energy adviser, Carol Browner, mischaracterized on national TV a government analysis about where the oil went, saying it showed most of the oil was “gone.” The report said it could still be there. It also said that Browner and the head of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Jane Lubchenco, contributed to the public’s perception the report was more exact than it was by emphasizing peer review.
All seven experts asked to review the Interior Department’s work expressed concern about the change made by the White House, saying that it differed in important ways from the draft they had approved.
“We believe the report does not justify the moratorium as written, and that the moratorium as changed will not contribute measurably to increased safety and will have immediate and long-term economic effects,” the scientists wrote earlier this year to Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and Sens. Mary Landrieu and David Vitter. “The secretary should be free to recommend whatever he thinks is correct, but he should not be free to use our names to justify his political decisions.”
Those complaints were similar to those of other scientists.
“Their estimates always seemed to be biased to the best case,” said Joseph Montoya, a biology professor at Georgia Tech. “A number of scientists have experienced a strong push back.”
The inspector general’s report said the administration did not violate federal rules because the executive summary did not say the experts approved of the moratorium and because the department publicly clarified what the experts said and had offered a formal apology.
Associated Press writers Seth Borenstein in Washington and Harry R. Weber in New Orleans contributed reporting.
If Barack Obama were to shoot someone dead on live television before an audience of hundreds of millions, there would be armies of “journalists” who would desperately try to change the story, change the facts, or somehow argue “Bush did it.”
Fortunately, a majority of the American people are finally coming to realize what a disgrace to the truth Barack Obama truly is.
