Hamburg was an investigator of "stress and anxiety" and behavior, at the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research (1952-53), the Institute for Psychosomatic and Psychiatric Research and Training at the Michael Reese Hospital in Chicago (1953-56), the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences at Stanford University (1957-58 and 1967-68); the National Institute of Mental Health (1958-1961); and Stanford University (1961-1976.) He was on the Advisory Committee on Medical Research of the World Health Organization from 1976 to 1988, and in 1994 joined the President's Committee of Advisors on Science and Technology. (Hamburg bio, National Academy of Sciences).

The Institute for Psychosomatic and Psychiatric Research and Training at the Michael Reese Hospital had been planned since 1945. "Funds were provided chiefly by the Jewish Federation of Chicago and Mr. and Mrs. A.D. Lasker of New York; Mr. and Mrs. Leigh Block of Chicago; and Mr. and Mrs. Sidney Brody of Beverley Hills, Calif." (Institute to Spur Psychiatric Study. New York Times, Jan. 3, 1951, pg. 40.) The Blocks and Brodys were daughters and sons-in-law of the Laskers. The longtime (~25y) medical director of the American Psychiatric Association, Melvin Sabshin, was its assistant director while Hamburg was associate director. (Melvin Sabshin: A Profile, by Leslie Knowlton. Psychiatric Times, May 1998.) Sabshin led the effort to remove homosexuality from the list of psychiatric disorder. (Panelists Recount Events Leading to Deleting Homosexuality As A Psychiatric Disorder From DSM. Psychiatric News, July 17, 1998.)

American Association for the Advancement of Science

Memo from Leonard Zahn to Robert F. Gertenbach, about the AAAS Annual Meeting, May 24-29, 1984: "It was the usual AAAS format: something for everyone (almost)... Perhaps that was why the incoming AAAS president, DAVID HAMBURG, president of the Carnegie Corporation, thought he could attack tobacco in a brief talk at the annual banquet of the National Association of Science Writers. But his remarks were ill-advised.

"Attempting to stress science-media cooperation in public education and understanding, Hamburg cited as an example the Surgeon General's Report on Smoking and Health that had been issued a few days earlier. His personal views on smoking were out of place, considering the occasion, and a number of media people later said so." (More likely he did it to please those who gave him the job. This is exactly the kind of heavy-handed approach that they rewarded -cast)

The Carnegie Corporation of New York

David Hamburg eulogizes the former president of the Carnegie Corporation, John Gardner. Hamburg joined the board of Stanford University in the "John Gardner chair," and later followed him as president of Carnegie as well. He likens Gardner to his "other dear friend who recently passed away, Cyrus Vance" (who was co-founder of The Public Agenda, upon whose board serve a number of the subjects of this website). (A Tribute to John Gardner. Delivered by Dr. David A. Hamburg, Wednesday, April 17, 2002.)

Gardner Tribute / Carnegie Corporation of NY

The much-lauded Gardner had been President of Carnegie from 1955-65; HEW Secretary from 1965-68; and was the Miriam and Peter Haas Centennial Professor in Public Service at Stanford University. He was a trustee of the Salk Institute for Biologial Research, circa 1971, whose trustees engaged in assorted anti-smoking activism.

"Until now, most of the efforts being made to change the nation's smoking habits have been undertaken by federal, state and local governments. But recently, Harvard University's John F. Kennedy School of Government has received a sizeable grant to establish an Institute for the Study of Smoking Behavior and Policy. The $658,000 grant was awarded by the Carnegie Corp., a New York-based foundation whose president, David A. Hamburg, has long maintained a strong interest in reducing tobacco use. The new institute will be directed by Thomas C. Schelling, an economist at Harvard... John M. Pinney, who served as a special assistant to former Health, Education and Welfare Secretary Joseph A. Califano and as director of the department's Office on Smoking and Health during the Carter Administration, will serve as executive director of the new institute..." (A Study That's Up in Smoke. By John K. Iglehart. National Journal 1984 June 9, p. 1141.) It was Hamburg's crony Julius Richmond who made the application for the grant. John Mercer Pinney, Skull & Bones 1965, supervised the Surgeon General reports from 1977 to 1981.

The Carnegie Commission on Science and Technology

(From "A Brief History of the Carnegie Group's First Three Years, 1990-1992," by D. Allan Bromley. Carnegie Corporation of New York, April 1996.) "In 1988, Carnegie Corporation of New York, led by its president, David A. Hamburg, M.D., established the Carnegie Commission on Science Technology and Government... The co-chairs of the Commission were Joshua Lederberg, president of Rockefeller University, and William T. Golden, chairman of the board of the American Museum of Natural History and a businessman with a long and influential career in national science policy. Of the tweny-two members of the Commission, half were scientists and engineers with governmental experience, and half were nonscientists with particular knowledge and experience in public affairs and science policy... The Commission members were pleased when President Bush chose D. Allan Bromley, the distinguished Yale University physicist, as his science advisor and upgraded the title. The Commission co-chairs and Dr. Hamburg met with Dr. Bromley in August 1989 and discussed some of the suggestions in the Commission report." (Foreword, by David Z. Robinson.)

Bromley was an old crony of Golden's from the board of directors of the AAAS. They decided to convene a meeting of the science advisors of the G-7R nations (Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom, and the US), plus representatives from the European Community and the Soviet Union. Bromley continues: "We also decided that the meeting should be held at an isolated location and that there should be no staff present... As we discussed possible sites for the meeting, both of us thought immediately of the Seven Springs Center at Mount Kisco, New York -- the former estate of the Eugene Meyer family, which had owned the Washington Post and other major U.S. newspapers. Originally the estate had been given to Yale University, together with a generous endowment to cover both its maintenance and upkeep, as well as basic staffing. For reasons that are still very unclear to me, Yale decided that it did not wish to retain the estate, and it was transferred to the Rockefeller University, where Joshua Lederberg was then president. The estate was roughly an hour's drive from the New York airports, was secluded, and provided extremely comfortable quarters for both the social and business aspects of the proposed meeting. President Lederberg recognized the potential of this meeting and immediately made the Seven Springs Center available to us."

In 1985, Martha L. Minow and Beatrix A. Hamburg were trustees of the William T. Grant Foundation, with $102,863,000 in assets. Robert J. Haggerty was president; he became a trustee of the American Health Foundation around 1989. "Since 1978, at least 21 foundations have supported either anti-smoking organizations or anti-tobacco programs pursued by firms without histories of anti-smoking activity. Awards range from $5,000 to $726,300 and total $2,656,426. Although these awards date back ten years, the majority of the donations were made in the mid-1980s. During the last five years, foundations gave $2,615,926 to further the efforts of the anti-smoking 'movement.' The grantors include several prominent organizations, e.g., The Rockefeller Family Fund, Carnegie Corporation of New York, and The Kaiser Family Foundation. In addition, corporate, banking and media-related interests are among the contributors."

Margaret A. Hamburg

FDA Commissioner nominee Margaret Hamburg is David A. Hamburg's daughter.

"As New York City’s heath commissioner in the 1990s, Hamburg fought for a total ban on indoor smoking in public places long before states and cities began adopting such aggressive restrictions. And as health commissioner in Baltimore, [Joshua] Sharfstein pushed through an indoor smoking ban in the city that paved the way for a similar statewide ban." (Obama’s Picks for FDA Adopted Hard Line on Tobacco. By Sean Mussenden. Media General News Service, March 18 2009.)

In 1990, the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company sponsored a conference on "Cancer Prevention for Black Americans: Risks and Reality." Charles B. Arnold, medical director of MetLife and editor-in-chief of the company's Statistical Bulletin, was chairman. Secretary of Health and Human Services Louis W. Sullivan bashed smoking. New York City Health Commissioner Dr. Woodrow A. Myers and Margaret A. Hamburg, deputy commissioner for Policy Research, New York City Department of Health, attended, along with Arnold's old friends from the American Health Foundation, Gary M. Williams and Ernst Wynder.

"City Health Commissioner Margaret Hamburg testified that smoking kills 14,000 city residents a year. She said health-care and 'smoking-related' costs total nearly $3 billion in the city alone. 'The evidence is indisputable,' she said. 'Our health is best protected by prohibiting smoking in public places.'" (Eateries: Smoking Bill Is A Drag. New York Post, Jun. 7, 1994.)

Eateries: Smoking Bill Is A Drag, Jun. 7, 1994 / UCSF (pdf, 44 pp)

This are all despicable Big Lies! Startng with the fact that every smoking ban, everywhere, has been rammed down the public's throat by falsely framing the issue as "freedom versus public health," and CONCEALING ANTI-SMOKER SCIENTIFIC FRAUD.

More than 50 studies have implicated human papillomaviruses as the cause of over 22% of non-small cell lung cancers. This equals over 30,000 cases, which is over ten times more lung cancers than the anti-smokers pretend are caused by secondhand smoke. Passive smokers are more likely to have been exposed to this virus, so the anti-smokers' studies, because they are all based on nothing but lifestyle questionnaires, are cynically DESIGNED to falsely blame passive smoking for all those extra lung cancers that are really caused by HPV. A significant proportion of lung cancers blamed on active smoking are actually caused by HPV as well. Obviously, there is a corrupt, politically-motivated coverup of a far larger cause of lung cancer than radon or secondhand smoke!

The anti-smokers lie that smoking bans cause "immediate, dramatic" declines in the number of heart attacks. In the Pueblo study, the death rates from acute myocardial infarction actually increased in the year after the ban, the same time they were boasting that the number of admissions declined! That suggests that people were dying because they weren’t admitted to hospitals when they should have been! And in the Indiana study, they exploited an anomalous spike in acute MIs during the "before" section of the study, to make the "after" part look better! And in the Helena study, the actual death rates from acute myocardial infarction (as opposed to hospital admissions which were the endpoint of the study) were nearly identical in 2001 (before the ban) and 2002 (the year of the ban), and reached their lowest point in 2003, the year after the smoking ban was repealed.

If smoking or passive smoking were real causes of asthma, the rates of asthma would have gone DOWN. But the EPA's own report says, "Between 1980 and 1995, the percentage of children with asthma doubled, from 3.6 percent in 1980 to 7.5 percent in 1995." The graph on pdf page 65 boasts of declines in cotinine levels during this same period.

America's Children, 2003 / US Environmental Protection Agency (pdf)

And the CDC says, "Despite the plateau in asthma prevalence, ambulatory care use has continued to grow since 2000... Increased ambulatory care use for asthma has continued during an era when overall rate of ambulatory care use for children did not increase."

Akinbami 2006 / Centers for Disease Control full article (pdf, 24 pp)

They create their bogus "smoking cost" claims by pretending that costs paid by smokers were paid by non-smokers, that diseases caused by infection were caused by smoking, and that non-smokers' costs don't exist at all! This is exactly how the CDC's vaunted SAMMEC works. The truth is that at age 20, smokers' lifetime costs will total 220k Euros, obese peoples' costs will total 250k Euros, and the "Healthy Living" will cost 281k Euros.

van Baal - PLoS Medicine 2008 full article / PubMed Central

The government has no right to restrict peoples' liberty without a compelling justification. The anti-smokers have no such justification, so THEY COMMITTED SCIENTIFIC FRAUD TO DECEIVE THE PUBLIC. This is a classic example of how the unscrupulous manipulators of public opinion have railroaded Americans into tyranny!

"Smoke-Free Restaurants Are Booming in New York City" - SIC

Remember how the anti-smoking propagandists boasted that "New York City's smokefree restaurant law is a success. Business in the Big Apple is booming. According to Tim Zagat, co-publisher of the popular Zagat Survey, 1995 finds a record high number of restaurant openings and a record low number of closings." And FDA Commission nominee Margaret Hamburg was the New York City Health Commissioner at the time! (SmokeFree Educational Services. SmokeFree Air newsletter, Summer 1995.) They expect us to naively believe that this is proof that the smoking ban is good for business! BUT - as the old saw goes, when things look too good to be true, they probably are. WE NOW KNOW THAT THERE HAS IN FACT BEEN A MASSIVE AND SYSTEMATIC CONSPIRACY TO GRANT LOANS, INCLUDING COMMERCIAL LOANS, WHICH NEVER SHOULD HAVE BEEN MADE! AND THAT THESE BAD LOANS WERE INSURED BY AIG - WHOSE DIRECTORS HAVE INCLUDED TWO TRUSTEES OF THE ROBERT WOOD JOHNSON FOUNDATION! So this is how the anti-smoking conspirators created their phony economic booms - and now they expect the American taxpayers to bail them out, because they're supposedly "too big to fail!" And naturally, the real conspirators expect to get away, while the public is distracted with ritual punishments of the small fry!

SmokeFree Air newsletter, Summer 1995 / UCSF (pdf, 13 pp)

And New York City is not the only town where anti-smokers claim that business has "boomed" since smoking bans were passed. Is there anyone, anywhere, who will deny that there has been a massive, systematic conspiracy to make bad loans, which has now virtually destroyed the global economy? Is there anyone who would dare to claim that greed alone is to blame? What about all those who looked the other way about what was going on, while deriving no direct financial benefit?

Institute of Medicine Roundtable meetings in 1995 and 1996 were a summit for members of the health fascist organizations and government agencies, from which their report "Healthy Communities: New Parnerships for the Future of Public Health" was concocted.
