UPDATE – Hulda Clark gets two major awards.
Last week was an important week in the Clark campaign. Dr. Hulda Clark, PHD, received two major awards, one from an International Scientific organization, the other from a national self-styled consumer advocate group. Both groups apparently placed her as a world renowned humanitarian, a forward thinking scientist, and a hero in the health world.
Opinion by Tim Bolen
THE FIRST AWARD, given at the tenth annual forum of the International Association of New Science at Fort Collins, Colorado was a serious peer affirmation of her work. Sponsored at the forum, by a former Apollo Astronaut and a co-founder of the Peace Corps, Dr. Clark delivered a speech and conducted a workshop to a standing-room-only crowd. She was given the “New Scientist of the Year Award.”
THE SECOND AWARD came in a strange package and requires some insider understanding, and interpretation of it’s real meaning. Steven Barrett, MD., a non-practicing psychiatrist(?), working out of his basement in Allentown, Pennsylvania, supposedly writing on behalf of his so-called “National Council Against Health Fraud (NCAHF)” wrote an article for his web site (www. quackwatch.com) called “The Bizarre Claims of Hulda Clark.”
Clark insiders were thrilled at Barrett’s recognition of their hero.
Little is known about the NCAHF. Nick-naming itself “The Quackbusters,” it’s membership is secret, and it’s funding is (?). But, leaders in the “Alternative Medicine” movement have long recognized that to be listed as a “quack” on the Barrett, Jarvis, Herbert, Renner “hit list” is tantamount to having “arrived” in the health world. Clark is now recognized in the company of Linus Pauling and the great health humanitarians of our time. Apparently, only those health leaders whose works seriously frighten Barrett’s sponsors(?) make the “list” in the first place. To be personally written up by Barrett himself gives Clark serious stature in the health community, and is by itself, an affirmation of the truth and validity of her work. To be criticized by Barrett personally, is an honor that few will ever attain…
Clark joins the ranks of 2,500 other top health professionals in North America, including 1,137 MDs, 167 PhDs, 236 DOs, 79 DDSs, 228 DCs, and 441 other (BS, RN, ND, HMD, CSW, MSN). Famous Julian Whitaker, MD of the Whitaker Wellness Institute, and himself on the “hit list,” says “There are 52 double doctorates on the list, with two or more of the following degrees, MD, PhD, DO, DDS, DVM, DMD. Many have university affiliation, have published in the peer-review literature, and are respected authors of books or even textbooks. Please note that this ‘quack’ list includes Linus Pauling, PhD. Linus Pauling is the only individual to have won two unshared Nobel Prizes, and virtually every other award for scientific achievement, both national and international. In the 1970s the editors of the British New Scientist listed Dr. Pauling as one of the top 20 scientists of all time. Albert Einstein was the only other scientist in the 20th century listed along with
Aristotle, Gallileo, Isaac Newton, and Michael Faraday.”For a complete copy of Doctor Whitaker’s views on the NCAHF see (www.internetwks.com/pauling/quack.html) Barrett has been conducting an unsuccessful anti-Clark campaign in Indiana, apparently trying to offset the prodigious Clark support network. Mary Wayt, Editor of the Brown County Democrat in Nashville, Indiana wrote about Barrett’s fiasco in an editorial showing 3 letters against Clark, and 203 for Clark. (www.browncountyindiana.com). Barrett was quoted in the Bloomington Hoosier Times, spouting some of his usual (yawn) drivel. One of Barrett’s parrotts(?) showed up at a Clark “Open House” in Columbus, Indiana – and whined when he was turned away.
IN OTHER NEWS: Two different state “health freedom” teams are heading for Indiana to advise local Indiana supporters in the intricacies of passing “health freedom” bills in their own state. Members of both the Colorado (already passed), and the Minnesota (in progress) teams are in constant contact with concerned Indianans. Indiana organizational teams are now forming.
MORE NEWS: Louisville, Kentucky supporters are organizing an event for 200 – 500 people over the December 10, 11, 12, 1999 weekend. National speakers including Hulda Clark. More information to follow.
EVEN MORE NEWS: PBS’s “Tony Brown Show,” about Dr. Clark’s work, HUGE success. Phones ringing off hook
Thank you Tony – you’re a great American. Second segment airing now around country. Mike McElrae did a terrific interview…
EVEN MORE THAN THAT NEWS: Prosecutor James Oliver of Brown County, Indiana has “recused” himself (withdrawn) from the case. Prosecutor Oliver is a one-man shop in Brown County. A prosecutor from one of the surrounding counties is expected to pick up this “hot potato” case. So far, they all seem to be busy that day… The public in Indiana is apparently viewing the situation differently than Oliver originally expected. The word on the street is “Brown County gets to try the woman who found the cure for cancer with ‘practicing medicine without a license.'” Clark supporters are looking for a connection between Barrett and Oliver. Got one? –
AGAIN MORE: A national organization, the Fully Informed Jury Association (FIJA) has jumped into the Clark camp. Interested in seeing that the Indiana jury in the Clark case, be fully informed that they have the power to judge the law (practicing medicine without a license) as well as guilt or innocence, FIJA begins its Indiana campaign soon. See their website www.fija.org. Welcome FIJA. Members – and thank you for coming…
Yes, the campaign is in high gear… “Showdown in Brown County” February 2, 2000…
