Groklaw article, likely to be censored shortly...
Some time in the past I identified numerous think tanks similar to Alexis de Tocqueville Institution -- AdTI -- with similar attack pieces subverting LINUX and OPEN SOURCE software. I identified that several different conspirator websites were operating from the same servers, simulating a larger unrest movement against L/OSS. My data was not taken up for discussion here, but a weblog reporting underhanded tactics of AdTI had a comments feature that allowed me to post some of the same data there.
That author took the data seriously. He further investigated (as Groklaw readers should have done) and discovered additional cases beyond the ones I cited. He wrote a piece called "When Think Tanks Attack".
"When Think Tanks Attack" was an immediate success.

Meanwhile, the original data that got Lambert started has been languishing on...
... where the only links are on forum where the author posted heads-up alerts.
The original data was revised in format and many additional links added, branched off into multiple webpages to each focus on a piece of the felony criminal conspiracy, involving AdTI as only a peripheral actor.
Dirty directors of AdTI have been identified:
- Fossedal -- signed-off on a fraudulent AdTI science hoax report paid for by felony tobacco conspirators in 1994, oversees felony violations of Sherman Antitrust Act by AdTI in 2004.
- Chris Cox -- took $11,000 of M$ campaign contribution, oversees felony violations of Sherman Antitrust Act by AdTI.
- Becky Norton Dunlop -- director of several of the organizations involved in felony conspiracy violations of Sherman Antitrust Act by AdTI, Heritage Foundation (M$ VP on Board), Townhall.com (M$ VP on Board), and others.
- Walter Williams (AdTI Advisory Board) -- felony conspirator in tobacco whitecoats project (Fred Singer accomplice 1993-1994)
I previously reported that ZDnet, CNET and MSN have binding contractual agreements. MSN is, of course, MICROSOFT. Any appearance of felony conspiracy to violate Sherman Antitrust Act is ACTUALLY a witnessed violation of felony conspiracy -- it is not an appearance, it is the real thing, a FELONY act of CRIME committed premeditatedly by an author with access to the truth (as I posted my data on ZDnet.au). The author is not even entitled to presumption of innocence when the true DATA has been published on a branch of the organization, and the legal concept of NOTICE comes into effect.
Since L/OSSers are not very interested in conspiracy, beyond where it impacts themselves directly and immediately, only the AdTI scandal stuff has attracted minimal interest. While lawyers believed to be intelligent enough to follow a year-long multi-courtroom fracas with SCO v L/OSSers, and programmers believed to be smart enough to grok millions of lines of code, were presumed to be able to follow threads of a conspiracy far simplier (but by no means "simple") than all that.
That was a misjudgement on my part. It is my error to misconstrue the simacrulum of intelligence as representing alertness of mind and powers of paying attention. As PT Barnum said "Nobody ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American public".
After months of trying I cannot even get token admissions that a Federal Judge knows their business, and picked apart SCO's (AT&T/USL) copyright claims in 1993:
There are NO SCO copyrights left to argue in five courts, and there hasn't been any for 11 years.
What you are seeing is felony frauds, felony conspiracies, to strip L/OSSers of their knowledge of their rights by the "BIG LIE" strategy of using OWNED mass media to replicate lies virally. You refuse to see the little man behind the curtain operating the levers of illusion, so, Dorothy, you are stuck in OZ.
If they couldn't Kill You with Tobacco Smoke
They can surely get you with Global Warming..
Here are the Global Warming counterfacts (partial list):
- 1992 -- "Warning to Humanity" petition circulates, signed by 1,700 working CREDIBLE scientists.
- 1992 -- Oil, Coal, pollution-industries counter-attack at Rio conference, fake Heidelberg Appeal circulates with their funding, using their paid-science-traitors, like the documented corrupt Fred Singer, documented corrupt Fred Seitz, documented corrupt Bruce N. Ames.
- 1997-1998 -- hottest ocean temperatures ever recorded in human history.
- 1998 -- hottest year in recorded human history.
- 1998 -- 86% of all corals bleached, came 2 degrees from known heat-death of species, and 10 days away from known heat-associated digestion failure starvation deaths. No fossil record shows such massive simultaneous incident ever in global geologic history other than 5 mass extinction incidents.
- 1999 -- strongest super-cyclone (310km/h winds) in human recorded history hits Orissa, India. 1.9 million houses damaged or destroyed, 10,000 people swept out to drown at sea.
- 2002 -- Severe droughts on five continents simultaneously -- at one moment the crops to feed one sixth the human race are threatened by brutal killing weather.
- 2002-2003 -- Worst drought in Australia recorded human history leads to wildfires invading Austrialian capital city and burning down hundreds of city blocks. At one moment not long afterwards a 250 kilometer firefront threatened to engulf the entire largest city in that country, Sydney.
- 2003 -- More people displaced by flooding than any year in recorded human history, over twice the geographical area flooded than second-worst flood disaster year in recorded human history.
- 2003 -- 562 tornadoes sweep the USA in ten days -- largest swarm of tornadoes ever recorded in US history, almost three times worse than previous historical record.
- 2003 -- Largest hailstone in human recorded history falls in Nebraska, 18 inches diameter, "cannonball size" which denialists say is impossible according to THEIR understanding of physics. Canteloupe-sized, softball-sized, baseball-sized, golf ball-sized all fell in 2003 hell storms.
- 2003 -- Weeks of unrelenting pounding of constant storms finally break northeast US power grid, 50,000,000 utility customers blacked out in US and Canada. Indiana governor, Frank O'Bannon, dies of heart attack from stress of one declared sequential "state of emergency" after another. Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Illinois, Toronto especially hit hard.
- 2003 -- Worst forest firestorms in Portugal's recorded human history, blamed on excessive heat and changed air currents denying rainfall.
- 2003 -- 20,000 forest fires in Russia, 16,000 of them before the heat of summer, the largest number in human recorded history.
- 2003 -- 1,400 heat-stroke deaths in Andhra Pradesh, India from sustained heat wave and delayed monsoon -- largest mass heat-killing in local recorded human history.
- 2003 -- 35,000 excess heat-stroke deaths across Europe, largest mass heat-killing in European recorded history.
