Criminalize Publications of False Scientific Papers

Senator Johnson has helped illuminate misconduct, fraud and genocide by American's Federal Health Agencies.

The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted numerous vulnerabilities and failures within America's healthcare institutions, revealing how corruption and primary scientific misconduct can undermine public trust and safety. This proposal aims to address these issues by imposing criminal penalties and sanctions for such misconduct, categorizing these actions under a newly defined Code of Treachery.

Exposure of Corruption in Healthcare Institutions

  1. Inadequate Response and Preparedness: The pandemic exposed significant gaps in the healthcare system's ability to respond to emergencies. Issues such as shortages of personal protective equipment (PPE), ventilators, and hospital beds highlighted systemic inefficiencies and potential mismanagement of resources.

  2. Conflicts of Interest: Financial ties between healthcare providers, pharmaceutical companies, and regulatory bodies created conflicts of interest that may have influenced decision-making, leading to policies and treatments that prioritized profit over public health.

  3. Misinformation and Lack of Transparency: Inconsistent messaging from health authorities and the dissemination of misinformation undermined public trust. This was exacerbated by the publication of research with questionable validity, often driven by political or financial motivations.

  4. Inequities in Healthcare Access: The pandemic highlighted significant disparities in healthcare access and outcomes, with marginalized communities suffering disproportionately. This raised concerns about systemic bias and inequality within healthcare institutions.

Primary Scientific Misconduct as a Tool of Corruption

Primary scientific misconduct, such as fabrication, falsification, and plagiarism, can be used to conceal corruption and unethical practices in healthcare. Examples include:

  • Fabrication of Data: Creating false data to support the efficacy of certain treatments or interventions, misleading healthcare providers and patients.

  • Falsification of Results: Altering research outcomes to favor specific drugs or medical devices, driven by financial incentives from pharmaceutical companies.

  • Plagiarism and Misleading Authorship: Appropriating others' research without credit and manipulating authorship to inflate the credibility of flawed studies.

Proposed Legislation: Code of Treachery

Section 1: Purpose

The purpose of this legislation is to uphold the integrity of scientific research and protect the public from the harmful consequences of false scientific information by imposing severe penalties on individuals or entities that publish scientific papers with demonstrably false conclusions.

Section 2: Definitions

  1. False Scientific Paper: A published research paper or article that contains conclusions which are demonstrably false and misleading.

  2. Demonstrably False: Conclusions that can be proven false through empirical evidence or logical reasoning by the scientific community.

  3. Scientific Judiciary Court: A specialized court established to adjudicate cases involving allegations of false scientific publications.

  4. Science Means Test: A qualification process to ensure that judges and panel members have the necessary scientific expertise to assess the validity of scientific claims.

Section 3: Criminal Penalties

  1. Imprisonment: Any individual or entity found guilty of publishing a false scientific paper shall be subject to a minimum of ten (10) years and up to life imprisonment.

  2. Asset Forfeiture: Guilty parties shall be subject to asset forfeiture penalties of up to ninety-five percent (95%) of their total assets.

Section 4: Establishment of the Scientific Judiciary Court

  1. Formation: A Scientific Judiciary Court shall be established to handle cases related to the publication of false scientific papers.

  2. Panel Composition: The court shall comprise judges and panel members who pass a science means test, ensuring they possess the necessary expertise in relevant scientific fields.

  3. Science Means Test: The means test shall be developed by a committee of experts from various scientific disciplines and shall include assessments of the candidates' scientific knowledge and critical reasoning skills.

Section 5: Adjudication Process

  1. Filing Complaints: Complaints regarding false scientific papers can be filed by individuals, academic institutions, or governmental agencies.

  2. Investigation: Upon receiving a complaint, the Scientific Judiciary Court shall conduct a thorough investigation to determine the validity of the claims.

  3. Trial: If sufficient evidence is found, the case shall proceed to trial, where the accused will be given the opportunity to defend themselves.

  4. Verdict: The court shall deliver a verdict based on the evidence presented, and if found guilty, impose the appropriate penalties.

Section 6: Implementation and Enforcement

  1. Enforcement Agencies: Federal and state law enforcement agencies shall be responsible for enforcing this legislation.

  2. Funding: Adequate funding shall be allocated to support the establishment and operation of the Scientific Judiciary Court and related enforcement activities.

Section 7: Appeals Process

  1. Right to Appeal: Individuals or entities found guilty under this legislation shall have the right to appeal the verdict to a higher court.

  2. Review Panel: Appeals shall be reviewed by a panel of judges with expertise in the relevant scientific fields.
