Does George Mason University support violence against women? GMU is harboring a violent wife abuser and discredited journalist Jon Entine as a biotech research fellow

Jon Entine
(NaturalNews) In an explosive investigative article series published last year, Natural News revealed that Jon Entine, who violently attacked his wife and traumatized his daughter according to shocking court documents, is a "senior research fellow" at George Mason University and a visiting research fellow at the University of California, Davis (UC Davis).

Now, thanks to a Freedom of Information effort spearheaded by U.S. Right to Know and covered by The New York Times, Jon Entine once again emerges as a key player in a massive academic prostitution ring run by the biotech industry that pays "scientists" to parrot scripted propaganda touting the "safety" of GMOs.

Jon Entine, whose ex-wife described as committing "domestic violence" against her in numerous court documents (see links below), appears as a key figure helping organize Monsanto's overthrow of Hawaii's recent GMO ban. As these once-secret emails now reveal, Entine is part of an email conversation that shows biotech industry funded shills plotting to destroy opposition to GMOs in Hawaii:

From: Alicia Maluafiti - HCIA
To: Renee Kestcr ; Jon Entine
Subject: RE; Kauai Conf Call #

I just want everyone to know that we ARE moving forward on this!

So I defer to Renee as the lead but we will need to craft out short term (leading up to July 31 hearing) and longer term strategy (post July 31) using the Biofortified boys (do you mind if I call you that? I think I'm the oldest of the bunch) :0)

So please know that you are part of our overall public education strategy and specifically - how do we use your valuable time wisely while you are here in Hawaii (besides hitting the beaches!) I'd love to hear your thoughts. Aloha!

George Mason University provides an academic front for biotech prostitutes

George Mason University touts itself as "...setting the gold standard for the modern, public university" yet it lends its credibility to Jon Entine who, according to a long list of publicly-released court documents revealed on the Jon Entine profile page at TruthWiki.org:

- Physically attacked his wife Ellen Turner, "...became very belligerent and aggressive toward Plaintiff [his wife]. He pushed her, shoved her, gouged her eye, choked her and pushed her into the porch column. He slammed the door and refused to release [their daughter]. Plaintiff finally called the Indian Hill Rangers..."

SOURCE: Jon Entine investigation Part One.

- Psychologically traumatized his own daughter in the process. "This occurred in the presence of [their daughter] who has been psychologically traumatized as a result. [Daughter] is afraid of [Jon Entine]... he has become increasingly and exceedingly hostile and belligerent. [The wife] fears that [Entine's] mental health has deteriorated..." (same source document as above)

- Was the subject of an urgent restraining order filed by his wife which ordered Jon Entine to refrain from "Physically, verbally and / or psychologically abusing, annoying, harassing or injuring [Ellen Turner] or the minor child of the parties...

- Engaged in child abuse / neglect / domestic violence according to a sworn statement by his wife, Ellen Turner. In the court document shown below, she pleaded with the courts to protect herself and her daughter from any further violence. The document was filed with Hamilton County Clerk Gregory Hartmann, Case # DR0500131: (bold added)

I have filed at 3109.27 Affidavit and have specifically addressed therein the child abuse / neglect / domestic violence physical harm provisions of O.R.C. 3109.04, 3109.051 and 3109.052 as those statutes pertain to both parents and this case.

SOURCE: Jon Entine public divorce document #23

- Was reportedly fired by ABC News for being "out of control" and saying "wild things." As reported in an earlier Natural News article:

ABC discovered Entine had made a number of mistakes in his methodology so serious that they had in effect fired him some ten days before. Entine, probably unknown to ABC, was however still picking up his messages from a phone on his old desk in the ABC building. We now understand from ABC sources that Entine is regarded as out of control and has been running around saying some wild things. SOURCE: Ivan Fallon, letter from Deputy Editor of The Sunday Times, October 8, 1993).

- Threatened to sue his daughter's therapist in order to force therapy sessions to stop:

Unbeknownst to Mother, however, [Entine] had already cancelled [daughter's] appointments for therapy... Father was... making unsupported and untrue claims that the parties had only agreed to a certain number of appointments. ... the GAL asked Father's counsel to intercede and to direct Father not to interfere with the therapy.

... Father proceeded to interfere again by seeking to interject himself into the process... Yet, his blatant disregard for the agreement reached continued on even after extended discussions... [Entine] again interfered with the therapist threatening him with legal action if he were to see [the daughter].

The [therapist] immediately contacted [Entine's] counsel to object to this blatant violation and Father's counsel advised he had directed Father to retract his threats. ...His actions led the therapist to determine that it was not fruitful to continue seeing [daughter] as [Entine] clearly has "poisoned the well..."

- Committed extremely sinister acts of corporate vandalism and espionage by causing a shampoo spill at a corporate factory he was investigating, then calling the FDA to report the violation, and then characterizing the company as dangerous and incompetent as a result, calling the company's founder a "sociopath."

As published on LornaSalzman.com:

Jay Harris of Mother Jones magazine reports that Entine called him and that "he began our conversation with a 20-minute rant about The Body Shop being the most evil company (he had) ever encountered in 20 years of investigative reporting". Harris goes on: "...This guy is talking about a company that spilled a few gallons of Fuzzy Peach Shampoo. He clearly had an axe to grind and was willing to let that take precedence over the facts."

In Entine's TBS attack, he referred to a Food & Drug Administration (FDA) investigation of a small shampoo spill from TBS' New Jersey operations. But he failed to say that it was HE who called in the complaint (later whiting out his name, a fact he concealed), that FDA found the TBS facility to actually be well-run, and that FDA, upon completing all inspections, is bound by law to make recommendations regardless of how clean the facility may be. (FDA Report Summary of Findings, 1123).

- Demanded that divorce courts force his wife's therapist into court to testify in violation of patient privacy rules, falsely asserting that his wife did not object to the therapist's testimony when in fact she did:

[Entine] has filed a motion to compel Rita Robertson, a treating therapist of Plaintiff Ellen Turner, to comply with the subpoena issued to her. ...[Entine] falsely states that [Wife] does not object to this subpoena.

- Demanded to seize his wife's private journals, dairies, private emails and financial records going back more than a decade, all in an attempt to extract more money from her as part of a vicious divorce proceeding.

- Threatened the female founder of a large public company, publicly called her a "schizophrenic and a sociopath" then managed to defame the company to such an extreme that it lost $500 million in market capitalization directly due to Entine's defamatory hit piece article.

As reported on Natural News:

His corporate destruction "achievements" are even bragged about in another document from his divorce, which explains that one of Entine's articles which resulted in him being threatened with defamation lawsuits "sent the stock price of the subject company plummeting by more than $500 million." That company was The Body Shop, founded by Anita Roddick, yet another women who fell victim to the Jon Entine's pattern of serial abuse of women.

- Fabricated false accusations and defamatory claims against Mike Adams (the "Health Ranger") in a since-retracted Forbes.com article which sought to assassinate the character of Adams and destroy his nutritional supplements business and reputation because of his skepticism on the safety of GMOs.

- Vandalized Wikipedia to smear the reputation of GMO research scientist Seralini:

Entine has also worked to undermine Saralini on Wikipedia, using the handle "runjonrun". GM Watch was alerted by Wikipedia users to the fact that Entine was one of the early editors on a one-sided and originally potentially libellous Wikipedia article called "The Seralini affair", which denigrated Seralini's study and Seralini himself.

Entine, under the Wiki user name "runjonrun", was active in vandalizing the article by rapidly deleting balancing information, for example, about the scientific support for Seralini's study and the conflicts of interest among critics of the study.

In a previous Wiki spat, "runjonrun" had revealed his true identity as Jon Entine after upsetting other Wiki users by allegedly contravening Wiki conflict of interest guidelines and vandalizing articles without justification.

- Uses outrageous tactics of intimidation against his targeted enemies such as publishing home addresses of his targets. Jon Entine also seeks out criminal histories of people with the same name as his intended targets, then publishes articles implying that his targets have criminal histories. Entine does this maliciously and deliberately, knowing that some names are so common that someone with the same name will likely have a criminal record somewhere in the country.

- Routinely engages in threats and intimidation tactics to bully his selected targets and opponents. Violates core principles of ethical journalism. Fabricates false accusations. Routinely characterizes opponents as sociopaths even though his own behavior paints the perfect example of a deranged sociopath.

- Jon Entine was described by his ex-wife, a former top-level executive of Sara Lee Foods, as needing "anger management classes" and a "psychological evaluation." She also laments Entine's "inability to obey court orders and respect normal societal boundaries."

- Jon Entine already put the reputation of George Mason University at risk by publishing false information in a Real Clear Politics column.

As explained on the Truthwiki.org Jon Entine page:

Arthur E. Berman, a petroleum geologist and consultant to the energy sector; editorial board member of The Oil Drum; Associate Editor of the AAPG Bulletin; Director of The Association for the Study of Peak Oil, wrote a letter to George Mason University dated July 4, 2011, that he also posted online on his blog, in which he sought to refute claims and assertions made by Jon Entine in his Real Clear Politics column published a few days earlier, on July 1, "Natural Gas "Bubble" Report: Market Tinkering or Shoddy Reporting?"

Berman writes:

His post contains errors, exaggerations and untrue statements that cannot be substantiated, and thereby jeopardize George Mason University's legal position and reputation as an honest broker of information.

I demand that Mr. Entine post public corrections to the many incorrect and unsubstantiated claims that he makes in this post. I further request that he write to me directly acknowledging that his post contained the many incorrect and undocumented claims that I specify below. He never contacted me or my clients to verify these claims and, apparently, did no research to document his many specious allegations.'

Berman then goes on to list the errors, exaggerations and statements he says are untrue.

Join us in asking George Mason University and UC Davis to either endorse Jon Entine or cut ties with him

As you review this shocking history about GMO apologist and biotech shill Jon Entine, ask yourself this important question: Is this the kind of behavior George Mason University endorses and supports? Does UC Davis endorse violence against women and the traumatizing of innocent children? If not, then why are they lending the credibility of their name to Jon Entine?

Does George Mason University support violence against women? The deliberate and insidious destruction of women-owned businesses? The psychological traumatizing of a young female child? The invasion of privacy that comes from demanding a wife's private journals and financial records? The attempted strong-arming of a woman's therapist to drag her into court to testify against her own client? The fabrication of false accusations, lies and false evidence? The systematic pattern of threats, intimidation, deception and villainy demonstrated by Jon Entine over and over again? Gross journalism misconduct?

If so, we are publicly asking George Mason University to endorse Jon Entine's behavior and let it set a shining example for the reputation of GMU from here forward. If this is what GMU stands for, then the university should go public with its defense of Jon Entine and take a stand for the support of physical violence against women, the psychological traumatizing of children and the destruction of women-owned businesses.

On the other hand, if George Mason University is as appalled at all this as the rest of us are, then GMU should quickly denounce Jon Entine, strip him of his senior research fellowship, and distance itself as quickly as possible from this nightmare of a man.

ACTION ITEM: Join us in demanding Jon Entine be stripped of his fellowship from George Mason University and UC Davis

Here is the media relations page at GMU:

It claims, "George Mason University is setting the gold standard for the modern, public university."

Post your comments (and a link to this article) on the GMU Facebook page:

Contact any of all of the following people at GMU and ask them if they support the behavior of Jon Entine. You may send them a copy of this article, a link to this article, or a link to the Jon Entine page on Truthwiki.org.

Please be polite in your emails. It is entirely possible that George Mason University has been hoodwinked by Jon Entine and had no idea of his true history. If so, GMU can restore its own reputation by immediately distancing itself from this individual and the history of violence against women and psychological trauma he has inflicted upon others, according to court documents.

Finally be sure to share this article on all social media and Twitter. This story will never be told by the mainstream media because they will always cover up a GMO propagandist, even if that person is also a violent wife abuser. There is no behavior too extreme to be covered up by the media as long as they can keep pushing GMOs and toxic chemical herbicides like glyphosate. The success of this story will depend entirely on the independent voices of people like you who share this story with others.
