This site deals only with the corporate corruption of science, and makes no inference about the motives or activities of individuals involved.
There are many reasons why individuals become embroiled in corporate corruption activities - from political zealotry to over-enthusiastic activism; from gullibility to greed.
Please read the OVERVIEW carefully, and make up your own mind.

This looks like a nutters convention of anarchist bent on destroying the American democracy, but in fact it is a carefully engineered popularist ploy to attract conservative support.
PRELIMINARY MATERIAL ONLY
In early 2010 the Patriot Caucus was organising a mass Tea Party march on Washington and a three day workshop at Valley Forge.
The names and the venues were chosen in order to cloak themseves with the flag and align their organisation with the image of both George Washington and the Revolutionary heros of the Boston Tea Party. In their fantasy-worlds they undoubtedly see themseves as super-patriots in the same faux-Revolutionary mould.
The main focus of the behind-the-scenes manipulators appears to be to block Obama's healthcare reform; they portray this as blatant socialism to their gullible supporters in this popularist movement. This, they maintain, warrants the extreme McCarthyist-rendition approach in fighting back the red menace of Communism.
Dick Amery is far too smart a politician to actually believe this fiction, as also is Grover Norquist . The've been intriguers and organisers of the backroom boys in Republican power politics for a few decades — which is why they are probably content to leave the leadership of the Patriot Caucus to a nut like Eric Odom.
- The most pertinent question to ask, is who is paying for this?
- Who has funded the hiring of the Valley Forge venue?
- Who pays these professional lobbyists to run the organisation.
At a minimum, they would each want to earn $500 a day?
- Who finances the web-sites?
2010: A right-wing Republican and Libertarian lobby group put together by Eric Odom of the American Liberty Alliance and Dick Armey of FreedomWorks in order to create a third conservative force in politics. It is attempting to assume the control over the Republican party that the Christian Coalition and Newt Gingrich's Contract with American operations once held.
It says of itself:
The Patriot Caucus is a peer powered entity being put in place to facilitate an environment of mass collaboration and communication within the liberty movement.
[The rest of this egomaniacal rave is worth reading....]
Every leadership position within the national structure will be an elected position. Each of these leadership positions will function as a "delegate" for a district, state or region.
Unlike a political party or existing organization, delegates within the Patriot Caucus exist to build bridges of communication between liberty minded groups and activist hubs. This is to be done with the following action items in play:
- Create a coherent, organized, state based directory of liberty minded coalitions, groups, orgs, think tanks, candidates and more
- Host conference calls and meetings with group leaders and movement organizers across districts and states
- Set up training events in districts and states (with involvement of groups and orgs)
- Collaborate with state and national communications teams to help market and promote events/efforts of existing groups, coalitions and orgs
- Work to ensure less duplication of efforts occurs
- Collaborate with delegates of other states for potential of unified efforts across state borders.
Valley Forge, PA.
To take this effort even further, we've booked a large venue in Valley Forge for the weekend of April 16-18 of 2010.
On April 16-18, 2010, we will convene for the first annual meeting of the Patriot Caucus in Valley Forge, PA.
There will be no charge for attending the three day event, but there will be a credentialing process. Each state will have a specific number of reserved seats to ensure a voting block for every state in the union.
On April 15th, we will make a move on Washington D.C. for one final warning. One final statement to Congress. One final plea for a reversal.
After the nationwide Tax Day Tea Party, the Patriot Caucus convenes for three days of meetings, panels, training sessions and more.
When we leave Valley Forge on April 19th, we leave prepared to do what is necessary to remove power hungry thugs from Congress and Senate.
