Professor Admits Faking AIDS Vaccine to Get $19M in Grants

Andy Soltis, New York Post, December 26, 2013

An Iowa State University professor resigned after admitting he falsely claimed rabbit blood could be turned into a vaccine for the AIDS virus.

Dr. Dong-Pyou Han spiked a clinical test sample with healthy human blood to make it appear that the rabbit serum produced disease-fighting antibodies, officials said.

The bogus findings helped Han’s team obtain $19 million in research grants from the National Institutes of Health, said James Bradac, who oversees the institutes’ AIDS research.

The remarkable findings were reported in scientific journals but raised suspicions when other researchers could not duplicate Han’s results.

    Dong-Pyou Han? Is that really the name? It can’t possibly be! I thought that according to some who post on here, that the race this doctor belongs to, is perfect in every way as well as the smartest on the planet. They might as well be super human!

        After seeing all the hype from white people, as well as the rest of the world, over East Asians, after China presented its arrogant and gaudy and over the top Olympics ceremony in 2008, I have had enough in regards to hearing about how great Asians are. When you have a point to prove to the world due to an inferiority complex, well then of course you are going to spend billions on a ceremony in which you brag to the world about your inventions that can only be counted on one hand. Meanwhile a large percentage of your country is poor.

        Any country can have “the best” opening ceremony when they spend billions on it. I am arguing with some idiot on another website right now who claims that Britain couldn’t have possibly compared to China in a ceremony in 2012, because “Britain has no history”. Boy, am I giving that person a piece of my mind. I am sick of this lockstep admiration of China. What is there to admire?

        • Max Krakah

          that “great wall” never really kept out the mongols either, but it made the emperor look impressive

    • Chinese are notoriously corrupt. Their “businesses practices”… er… leave something to be desired.
      This “science” would never pass peer-review, as rabbits do not contract the simian immunodeficiency virus group.

    • JohnEngelman

      Who said that?

  • sbuffalonative

    I always wonder how these people think they can get away with it and for how long. At some point someone is going to expect results. Do they not understand this?

    (On a side note: One of our local resident uber ‘progressive’ weekly journalists penned a piece about global warming disputing the claim that GW scientists lie and falsify data to get grant money. )

    • Katherine McChesney

      Who is it?

    • Irishgirl

      He got away with it long enough to get $19 million.

    • BonusGift

      “Results” you say? Because of the likes of the not so honorable Dong Pyou we now have more ‘scientists’ and ‘engineers’ living than at any point during the history of the planet, and certainly since YT’s industrialization began, yet the lowest relative level of innovation? I wonder why? Here is one more related rhetorical question: Do you think it might have something to do with lying cheats like that Han referenced in the piece that lie cheat and generally commit fraud without a hint of shame? For your average YT lying and cheating would be shameful enough, but for the likes of this Han fellow it obviously is the getting caught that causes the ‘loss of face’ (albeit most likely temporary).

      Al Gore and his carbon credit scheme?

    To be fair scientists of all non-black ethnicities have done this.

    • obot

      Even non-scientists like Al Gore have made hundreds of millions off duping the gullible masses.

    Must be a friend of John Engleman’s.

      They don’t call him yellow John for nothing…

    Dr. Dong-Pyou Han? Where’s Engelman?

    • Fathercoughlin

      Where else? Trolling dating sites seeking to get a Chinese woman before he leaves this Earth!

      • JohnEngelman

        It is always possible an Oriental woman will notice my praise of Oriental women and send me an e-mail letter.

        I almost wrote “a pretty Oriental woman.” That would have been redundant.

  • Extropico

    Do the Asians have quota jobs for Whites in Asia yet. Plenty of Whites would have liked that sinecure in their own country.

  • If his name was Dr. Dionte Persius Freeman, the whole thing would have been swept under the rug.

  • dd121

    Obama told a few stories too, to get his health care bill passed. Just a sign of the corruption of the times, I guess.

  • bigone4u

    Why hasn’t this china-man been deported? American universities don’t need these corrupt liars, who can’t teach their way out of a paper bag and who fake their research results.

    You’ll notice that his university did not get suspicious, investigate, and call him out as a fraud. That’s because he was bringing in the bucks. At my former university, the research productivity of the china-men was amazing, but I knew why–it was fake. Those guys are still at the university and will be until some white guy tries to duplicate the results and fails, which can take years. If all the fake China-men professors were given a good hard look, most of them would be out in the street selling won ton soup to tourists.

    • dd121

      If it’s as widespread as you say, and I don’t doubt you, you’d think the President of the school and the board would step in to protect the reputation of the institution rather than adding a few bucks to the coffers for the short run.

      • bigone4u

        Remember the long-term coverup of the Sandusky pedophile affair at Penn State. All university administrators have the instinct to cover up things. The ex-President of Penn State, Warren Spanier I recall, is on trial last I read. If some of the things the president of my former workplace did come out, he would spend the rest of his life in prison. Perhaps he could share a cell with Warren Spanier. Higher ed is corrupt. I would never donate money to any university without knowing exactly what would be done with it.

    • obot

      Probably because they can’t deport him to China. He’s Korean

      • bigone4u

        I tend to associate Asians with China because there was only one Korean at my university vs. a ton of Chinese. Interesting that the “model minority” label lumps them all together. So, this one should be deported to Korea if you’re right about his origins.

        • IstvanIN

          19 million deserves prison.

          • bigone4u

            I sent this news story into amren, thinking they probably wouldn’t feature it. If I recall correctly his punishment was being barred from receiving federal grant money for 3 years. That’s just inadequate. I agree with you that fraud on this scale deserves a trial and imprisonment when found guilty.

    • Katherine McChesney

      Wasn’t it also a China-man who stole secrets from Los Alamos?

      • bigone4u

        Yes, but he was never prosecuted. But as far as I can recall he was the only suspect.

  • D.B. Cooper

    I remember seeing the headline earlier today on another site. I had a feeling it was a nonwhite doctor.

  • JackKrak

    This story gives me the feeling if that “Dr.” Bongo-Bongo of deepest, darkest Congo “found” that mixing lion feces with leaves from a sacred tree blessed by a witch doctor “cured” just about anything and asked for grant money, the NIH or whoever would be put in a very tight spot. Even the mere suggestion that his research was, uh, “flawed” would be met with howling cries of – well, you know. Better to give him a blank check and notify school book publishers right away so they could include his name in the next version of their textbooks.

    • Bossman

      With a name like that, Dr. Dong appears to be from East Asia, not from the Congo.

      • JackKrak

        Yeah, I know…… I’m talking about non-white Doctors generally, especially those of the darkest hue

        • IstvanIN

          The difference between sub-Saharan “researchers” and researchers of other races who commit fraud is that the sub-Saharans really believe the nonsense they try to palm off.

  • WR_the_realist

    White scientists have committed fraud too. So I don’t know what this article proves other than that you can find liars and fraudsters almost everywhere.

    • JohnEngelman

      That is certainly true. Unfortunately, some posters on this website look for any excuse they can find to condemn Orientals and Jews.

  • gemjunior

    Yes, it would seem odd to a person who is clueless to what is really going on and is thoroughly plugged in to the matrix.

    • Max Krakah

      he has a smaller brain, less pre frontal lobe matter

  • BonusGift

    You are a projecting troll; and it is you that obviously can’t handle the truth. For example, you seem incapable of understanding that an average is not distribution, and the term “Orientals” or “Asians” do not just mean Japanese, Koreans, and Chinese.

  • Bossman

    They’re good learners, and more studious but life is about more than that. I doubt very much that East Asians could go on to conquer the world. They will continue to do what they do best: copy and mass produce many things that we want and need.

    • JohnEngelman

      I hope the Chinese do not try to conquer the world. I am afraid they will succeed. One out of five people in the world is Chinese. I hope the Chinese settle for hegemony.

      • David Ashton

        What will the “Chosen” people do?

        • JohnEngelman

          If the Chinese government has any sense it will encourage Ashkenazi Jews to immigrate to China. No country can have too many people with high IQ’s.

          • BaronBaal

            That’s not going to happen. The Chinese are much more alert and observant than you think, and they are fully aware of the damage and destruction you Jews have done to the West. There’s no way that they would allow you Jews to move there because they know that if they did, in 30 years or so they would be experiencing the same problems that the West is facing now because of you Jews.

          • JohnEngelman

            I am not Jewish, but it would not matter if I was.

            By no criterion decent people would agree to can it be said that Jews on the average are morally inferior to white Gentiles. They probably have lower rates of crime and illegitimacy, but I have not been able to find data pertaining to that on the internet.

            The Jews benefit every country they live in with their superior intelligence. No country can have too many people with high IQ’s.

          • BaronBaal

            “Superior intelligence”, lol. You sound like a Nazi eugenicist, John. Looking at the big picture, there are a lot more high IQ whites out there than there are high IQ Jews, John, but having said that, high IQ isn’t everything, John…

          • JohnEngelman

            The vast majority of Jews are whites.

          • BaronBaal

            Depends on how you define “white”. Yes, they are Caucasoid like their Arab cousins but they are not Europeans. They have nothing in common with us. Their world view is different, and most importantly, they are (most of them, anyway) hostile to us and their interests are always in conflict with our interests.

          • JohnEngelman

            You are projecting your hostility toward Jews onto them. I have never known a Jew who was hostile to Gentiles.

          • BaronBaal

            Being hostile is not the same as being aware of what’s going on, John. Remember, you’re the one trolling on this website spouting your Asian/Jewish supremacy nonsense- not me. You reap what you sow, buddy, but I’m still stuck on your ludicrous notion that there will be a future Asian/Jewish coalition of sorts. Like I said, you’re a funny guy, John…

          • BaronBaal

            The funniest thing of all is that Jews honestly think that they are “needed” by the rest of us. What a joke. China doesn’t need Jews for any reason and you’re a mad man to even think that China would open the doors to allow Jews to emigrate to China. It just isn’t going to happen. There are a 1000X more Chinese out there with an IQ of over 140 than there are Jews out there with an IQ over 140 so what’s the point? You’re a real clown, John…

      • BaronBaal

        Yes, because they are “less sexually active” than whites, right, Jew?

  • Bossman

    They’re very studious and good learners, and they also intuitively know that intensive study is one of the avenues open to them for success.

  • David Ashton

    I am not debating the conclusions of Rushton, but how many critiques of his work in this field have you troubled to investigate?

    • JohnEngelman

      I have as little respect for efforts to refute the assertions of J. Philippe Rushton as I have for efforts to refute the assertions of Charles Murray, Richard Herrnstein, and Arthur Jensen. What they say is obviously true. Some people can’t handle the truth.

      • David Ashton

        I am familiar with all four authors but scientific research is never set in sacred stone.

      • Max Krakah

        so, it is above critique, it is the final word, why, because you are emotionally invested in his conclusion. That makes you neither an academic, nor a scientist, nor an intellectual for that matter. It makes pig headed, that’s all.

        • JohnEngelman

          I also have no respect for those who argue in favor of a flat earth, although the earth looks flat from where I stand.

          The assertions of J. Philippe Rushton, Charles Murray, Richard Herrnstein, and Arthur Jensen match personal observations I have made throughout my life.

  • David Ashton

    Creativity is NOT identical with problem-solving. There are many aspects to intelligence. Read some textbooks on this – oh, sorry, ask us to write their contents out in our own words, or refer you to websites you probably will not read anyhow if it means getting out of your comfort zone. I once met an Egyptian psychologist who was in London to work out sets of creativity tests, which are different from the usual IQ tests, on behalf of his Government.

  • John K

    I say we help him with the research and inject him with one of those HIV blood vials. He won’t be so deceptive when the life he’s trying to save is his own.

  • Max Krakah

    JE does not have the intellect to understand what you just said.

  • Max Krakah

    The Chinese had to get the Clinton administration to give them launch technology AND THE WHITE PERSONNEL in order to be able to successfully launch a rocket. Ever hear of the Laurell Space scandal?

  • Max Krakah

    math and music are definitely linked. Children that are taught to play the piano before the age of five do exceptionally well in math.

  • Max Krakah

    why bother, we did that already. I could copy a Raphael painting, in fact I did, but that does not make me the creator of it.

    They put more effort into learning because they know that they can’t be football players, jazz musicians, hip hop performers, security guards, police officers, etc.

    “Orientals are slower to mature, less fertile, less sexually active, …”
    Yeah, SURE they are, lol- all 2 billion+ of them…

  • BaronBaal

    You’re a moron, John. Funny thing is that you, like your buddy Rushton, have never been laid by an Asian and speak no Asian languages and don’t live around Asians so you don’t know what the hell you’re talking about.

    • JohnEngelman

      You’re right about the languages. I enjoyed living with Vietnamese in downtown San Jose, California. My sex life is none of your business.

      • BaronBaal

        You’re a pseudo-intellectual, John. How can you be an expert about another racial/ethnic group when your knowledge is so superficial? You remind me of the ugly American tourist who goes to a country for all of 2 weeks and then goes back home an “expert” preaching to his friends about the customs and traditions of the indigenous people of the country he visited. You’re a funny guy, John…

        • JohnEngelman

          I am one who prefers to discuss issues to exchanging insults.

          • BaronBaal

            No you don’t, John. You’re a troll and bait people along hoping to get a negative reaction from them. Does it give you the rush you so crave, John? Look at the world around you. The white influence that we whites have had all over this world is staggering, so something is very wrong with your little IQ theory, John….

          • JohnEngelman

            If you were confident of the validity of your arguments you would not descend to personal insults.

          • BaronBaal

            Says who, John? You don’t make the rules. I have no problem exposing you for what you are AND getting my point across, and if you find that insulting so be it…

          • JohnEngelman

            A troll can be defined as one who angers others on an internet forum. I anger posters by calmly and politely challenging their prejudices, and exposing their misconceptions by posting facts.

          • So you are here to fight prejudice and racism?

          • JohnEngelman

            I have often been called a racist because I agree with Charles Murray. Like Jared Taylor I think the word “racist” has interfered with a candid discussion of racial differences in intelligence.

            Also, prejudice is often based on previous experience. It can be seen as the wisdom of the uneducated.

            Therefore, the answer to your question is, “No.”

          • Keeping simplicity and brevity in mind, tell me what separates your “racism” from those that you consistently accuse of hate, simply because they choose to base their ideology around a different kind of restructuring of society.

            Aren’t you also prejudice against Southern Whites that you imply are so beneath you? Your definition of Southern Whites pretty much applies to anything White and rural, but we can just pretend that you are talking about only Southerners. It also sounds an awful lot like an SPLC storyline. I’m willing to bet that you have less experience with Southern Whites than do some of the pro-White people and The Jews whom they blame for everything bad in the world. I highly doubt White Gentile Southerners have any kind of real influence over your daily life. Surprisingly, though, White Gentiles and Southern Whites always seem to make it to the top of your personal Scums of the Earth list when you are talking about intolerance, hate, jealousy and prejudice.

            I really don’t see how your prejudice and hate is any different.

          • JohnEngelman

            Those are good questions. I do not run from the term “racist,” but I would rather say that I believe in race realism. I believe that racial differences are significant.

            The difference between me and those who hate Jews and Orientals, or at least wish they would leave the United States, is that I identify with those who behave similarly to me and have similar interests, rather than those who look similar. One of the best friends I ever had was a black man.

            I do not hate anyone because of the racial or ethnic group he is in. However, I feel more comfortable with non Asian minorities than I do with Southern whites.

          • BaronBaal

            Honestly, John, could the world function without prejudice? Do us all a favour and take your opinions to a pro-Jewish or pro-Asian website where they MIGHT be fully appreciated…

          • JohnEngelman

            Do me a favor and stop following me around with your childish comments. Spend a week or two in a public library. Come back when you have something important to say.

          • BaronBaal

            That’s the point, John. I don’t need a public library because I LIVE the life that you only can understand by reading your books. Not that reading is a bad thing, of course, but direct experience is infinitely better than what you get from books. Like I said, you’re a pseudo-intellectual and nothing more. And sorry, John, but this is a public forum and I can post as I please, and if you don’t like it then tough. At least I don’t troll like you do…

          • JohnEngelman

            Anyone on an internet forum can claim any identity. If their posts reveal them to ignorant and unpleasant, one has the right to doubt claims of distinction.

          • BaronBaal

            Ignorant, no. Unpleasant (for you), yes. Stop self-projecting yourself onto me, John, because it won’t work.

  • BaronBaal

    Then you have some explaining to do, John, because every source I’ve looked into clearly shows that the national IQ of China is 100 and not 105…

  • JohnEngelman

    I will never EVER believe that asians have higher IQ scores than whites.

    – collapsereport

    Then you are beyond the range of rational debate. It is natural for one to allow his likes and dislikes to influence his judgment of reality. Nevertheless, one should try not to.

  • BaronBaal

    I like your little chart, John, but I could find no data whatsoever ANYWHERE that shows that East Asians have more people at the far right end of the Bell Curve than Whites do. Is this the best you can do? You’re a real clown, John…

  • BaronBaal

    Thanks for completely dodging the fact that China, the country with the most East Asians in the world, has a national IQ of 100. Good job, John…
