Deniers Turning on Dr Jones?
Ah the paranoia is finally catching up! Check out this thread on Democratic Underground; it seems likely that this meme (absurd as it is) will catch on with the 9-11 nutbars:
|When Oct posters tried to discredit Jones by connecting him with Cold Fusion I thought that he had been a proponent of it. I also thought that conventional wisdom had shown cold fusion to be "kooky" science. After watching this video I see that there is no consensus on whether cold fusion research should be continued or not. That isn't what I am posting this for, though. The role Jones played in cold fusion was to put out results which he claimed disproved the Pons Fleischman research that had been going on for years. What bothers me about this is he was acting, according to this , on a tip from an "informant" at the DOE (Department of Energy). The DOE was, it appears, representing the interests of energy companies, of course, who did not want a source of cheap energy known. The movement against CF, in fact, seems to be driven by corporations and their pals in the government & Universities. So, could Steven Jones be a government operative or acting on the behalf of the powers that be? Making a name for himself in 9-11 only to be "disproven" later? How is he supporting himself? I don't trust his opponents at Scholars for Truth, either with their "Space beam weapons", I wonder about the legitimacy of the whole group , it is like a script, form two groups and divide which was exactly what we were told would happen. I was kind of mad at Spooked when he posted the anti-Jones thread and now, belatedly I'm seeing the point.|
The no-planers are also busy attacking Jones as well. Nico Haupt tries to tie him to the murder of a cold fusion proponent. Of course, the murder in question was actually committed by a pair of crackheads, but you know the CT response to that: They were patsies.
Note: If you read 9-11 Blogger, you will see a lot of support for Jones over there. I am not sure if this is Jones' last redoubt or if he is still considered the rock star of the movement.
