Jimmy Carter and the Howard Johnson Patent

February 16, 2017

I think that Jimmy Carter, Nobel Peace Laureate, was one of the better Presidents and he was also a nuclear engineer. Douglas Mann in his paper mentions how he obliged the Patent Office to deal fairly with Howard Johnson.”

We have already pointed out that Carter was not a ‘nuclear engineer’: he was an engineering graduate who was later, as a minor part of his naval career, sent on a six-month course related to nuclear reactor use. That does not make one a ‘nuclear engineer’. He did not ‘oblige’ the patent office to do anything special for Johnson. The patent office publishes a huge number of crackpot inventions, so it would not have had any problem with accepting the Johnson rubbish. The patent office has a long history of itself employing perpetual-motion loonies, among them Thomas Valone. Effective presidential pressure would surely have resulted in the patent being granted. As mentioned before, Carter is the only president on record as being a  flying-saucer witness. Is that a recommendation? It probably is … in the lunatic fringe. Again Ron fails to report his part in the Johnson scam. But he is not the only incompetent ‘scientist’ to be embroiled in the racket: one also has to add William P.Harrison of the Virginia Polytechnic Institute, who co-authored a ‘paper’ with Johnson on the subject of the ‘magnetic motor’. Cranks like Mann think that the involvement of someone like Harrison elevates perpetual-motion into fact. All that it really does is to prove that academic institutions are often home to persons who should be in some other sort of institution.

    I thought ex US President Carter was a former Engineer who became a Peanut farmer, who liked fishing in West Wales from time to time between reading the works of Dylan Thomas. Typical of Moron to twist it.
    Anyway, folks – BIG NEWS – the building plot next door to Moron’s semi detached Cottage University has just been sold. I wonder who the buyers are. Did their Solicitors search sufficiently to tell these buyers of this building plot exactly who their next door neighbour will be. Watch this space for a saga of spiteful litigation as the previous buyers of the house next door the other side.
