Reuters Reports:

BOSTON, Dec 21 (Reuters) - A Harvard University professor misled U.S. authorities by repeatedly lying about his ties to a China-run recruitment program, a prosecutor said on Tuesday, as a closely-watched trial in a crackdown on Chinese influence in U.S. research neared its end.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Jason Casey told a Boston federal jury that Charles Lieber, a renowned nanoscientist and former chair of Harvard's chemistry department, lied to U.S. investigators to protect his career and Nobel Prize ambitions.

Casey said evidence established Lieber, 62, had agreed to affiliate with a Chinese university and participate in China's Thousand Talents Program, which prosecutors say China uses to entice foreign researchers to share their knowledge with it.

But in his closing argument, Casey said Lieber denied his involvement when confronted by officials at Harvard and the U.S. Defense Department, and the U.S. National Institutes of Health, which had awarded him $15 million in research grants that could be threatened.

Kill the Messenger   

   

Two-time Academy Award nominee Jeremy Renner (“The Bourne Legacy”) leads an all-star cast in a dramatic thriller based on the remarkable true story of Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Gary Webb.

Webb stumbles onto a story which leads to the shady origins of the men who started the crack epidemic on the nation’s streets…and further alleges that the CIA was involved in smuggling cocaine into the U.S., and using the profits to arm rebels fighting in Nicaragua.

The greatest obstacle to the American dream
for most Americans has been the blinding conceit and self serving public policies of the illegitimate controlling elite (ICE) and the notions of their own entitlement as stewards of a false "greater good".

Draining the swamp is long overdue.
