EPA Fraud

Reaction Of The Press

THE EPA ETS FRAUD THE WORLD HAS BEEN CHEATED BY THE ANTI-TOBACCO CARTEL

Because of ignorance, corruption, bad faith, desire to "influence the population to quit smoking", as well as the promise of the big rewards coming from anti-tobacco propaganda advertisement, the large majority of the media has become an instrument of the anti-tobacco cartel. The falsifications and exaggerations of anti-tobacco have been given high profile, while the overwhelming evidence about the non-existing dangers of second hand smoke has been ignored.

Even in this case, the media at large has tried to underplay the exposure of the EPA fraud, becoming once again accomplice of a criminal political agenda that uses deception in order to induce the population to marginalize smoking.

But some of the press has finally found the courage to speak out against this campaign of deception that has destroyed families, businesses, friendships, jobs, and created mistrust and enmity among the people, not to mention billions of dollars being transferred from the pockets of the taxpayers to the ones of the operatives of the cartel.

Here we report just some of the reactions against the latest exposure of this disgusting saga.

THE ARTICLE OF THE WASHINGTON POST

"This decision could and will open a chain of investigations on the wrongdoing of the EPA and the criminals of the anti-tobacco cartel, as well as stimulate a large number of lawsuits for violation of civil rights, falsification of evidence, wrongful termination of employment, wrongful smoking bans, etc."

"But particularly, it will set the background for the criminal investigation of those politicians, physicians, anti-smoking organisations, and other health authorities who knowingly have misrepresented scientific information to achieve their political ends of control."

THE FEW BUT FEISTY SPEAK OUT
The ever-vigilant Milloy's junkscience pagehas brought together a collection of press commentaries from the few but feisty editorialists who recognize the gravity of the deception perpetrated by EPA, as detailed in Judge Osteen's recent scathing decision striking down the infamous EPA report on secondhand smoke. The New York Daily News' Sidney Zion delivers the bottom line when he writes:"And now we have the truth about the anti-smoke fascists." And he openly speaks his opinion that there has been media censorship. We direct you to the junkscience web site and these pieces:

JUDGE SMOKES OUT TOBACCO LIE
by Sidney Zion (New York Daily News)
"These ideological hustlers are responsible for all the madness we've experienced since 1993, when, without a scintilla of evidence, they declared that secondhand smoke causes cancer."

SOUND SCIENCE UP IN SMOKE
(Editorial, The Washington Times)
"With this latest ruling, any reputation for sound science that EPA still has is going up in smoke."

BETRAYAL BY GOVERNMENT SHOULD HAVE US SMOKIN'
by Kathleen Parker (Chicago Tribune)
"What should be keeping Americans awake nights is the betrayal of government. For the past five years, the federal government has been spreading the word that ETS kills non-smokers. As a direct consequence of the EPA report, smokers have been banned as pariahs from offices, restaurants and, in some places, bars and sidewalks. Owing to government 'proof' that secondhand smoke damages or eventually kills children exposed to it, some kids caught in custody disputes have been deprived of the parent who smokes."

MORE EPA ETS SCAM FALL-OUT
Three links to the legendary Junkscience website for more media follow-ups on the U.S. federal judge's decision that struck down the EPA's report on second-hand smoke.

IT'S A SHAME THAT AMERICANS CAN'T TRUST THEIR OWN GOVERNMENT
" Science is as politicized in America as it was in the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany. And this EPA is a prime example."

EPA: ENVIRONMENTAL PROPAGANDA AGENCY
" The Environmental Protection Agency jiggered the facts to push its notion that passive smoke causes cancer. The EPA's dishonesty was recently laid bare in court. But this was too late for thousands of businesses and towns that responded to the EPA's junk science by passing anti-smoking measures."

HAS EPA BEEN PROMOTING ONE BIG SECONDHAND SMOKESCREEN?
"The issue here really is not so much about secondhand smoke. It's more about the corruption of science by the EPA for political purposes."

SMALL BUSINESS APPLAUDS THE EXPOSURE OF THE SECOND HAND SMOKE SCAM
(July 25, 1998)

"With federal judge throwing out the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) claimed ``science'' on secondhand smoke, the agency is open to even more scrutiny by the courts, taxpayers, and the regulated community, according to the Small Business Survival Committee (SBSC) -- a national, nonprofit, small business advocacy organization. "

"THE EPA HAS AN AGENDA - AND IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH TRUTH OR SCIENCE."
(July 23, 1998)

The quote says it all. Read the rest inside.

EPA: SMOKE AND MIRRORS
(August 7, 1998)

"Most studies have failed to establish a significant link between second-hand smoke and cancer. The risk from drinking coffee or milk appears greater. Undaunted, the EPA in 1993 defined second-hand smoke as a Class A carcinogen, or cancer-causing agent."



THE TOTAL SILENCE OF THE CANADIAN MEDIA ON THE US FEDERAL DECISION PUTTING THE LIE ON THE EPA HAS BEEN BROKEN

The Canadian media barely breathed a word about the Osteen decision when the news broke. However, Terence Corcoran of the Globe and Mail - long critical of anti-tobacco - was prompt to respond and to grasp the significance of the decision. The Canadian media's seeming determination to ignore this story was especially disturbing given the disruptive battles over smoking bans that have been fought in this country over the past several years.

THE LAST GASPS OF THE ANTI-TOBACCO LOBBY
(July 23, 1998)

"You'd hardly know it looking at the Canadian media, but the anti-tobacco crusade is imploding in the United States. It's not faring all that well in Canada either. Has the movement peaked? Is a new spirit of individual freedom rising across the continent against the meddling busybodies in the health lobby? Have voters and taxpayers on both sides of the border finally concluded that the massive regulatory and tax regimes are mostly giant money grabs by politicians and bureaucrats? Is the junk science behind the second-hand-smoke scare unravelling?"

This article also underlines the catastrophic failure (and cost) of the anti-tobacco cartel. If the cartel wants to continue in its stupid crusade, if they want to believe their own junk science as a new form of religion, they are prefectly free do to so. BUT NOT WITH TAXPAYERS' MONEY!!!

And FORCES will continue to fight these criminals as they make their way from the seats of the Ministries of Health to those of Her Majesty's correction facilities.

TRANSCRIPT FROM THE "NEWS HOUR WITH JIM LEHRER" - PBS

SMOKE SCREEN?
(July 23, 1998)

Debate between CAROL BROWNER, EPA Administrator, and CHARLES BLIXT, R.J. Reynolds executive vice president and general counsel on the PBS stations.

The tobacco industry talks about "reasonable dialogue." REASONABLE DIALOGUE??!!!There is no reasonable dialogue when the bastards want to push their frauds on us, expel us from society, and accuse us of murder, all by promoting intolerance among children and adults, and using the force of the state on us.

Here is the dialogue, boys & girls: WE WANT YOU TO BE ACCOUNTABLE FOR THE TREMENDOUS FINANCIAL, EMOTIONAL AND SOCIAL SUFFERING YOU GANGSTERS HAVE CAUSED US WITH YOUR LIES AND FABRICATIONS. We want PUBLIC APOLOGIES, and COMPENSATION. And we want those who have falsified, and divulged false information TO BE PROSECUTED, AND SPEND TIME IN JAIL.

NOTHING less that that should and can be satisfactory, and the fighters of the smokers' rights movement better put their best energies to this task RIGHT NOW.
