From top to bottom the whole system is a fraud, all of us know it, laborers and capitalists alike, and all of us are consenting parties to it." -- Henry Adams

Cold weather 'doesn't undermine global warming science'

Stephen Dorling, of the University of East Anglia's school of environmental sciences, said it was not surprising the cold period raised questions over climate change - but the snowy weather should not be used as evidence against it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

University of East Anglia is at the heart of the Climategate scandal. I would think that the school's trustees would at the very least ask their people to shut up until the scandal blows over. Because Dorling just reminded everyone of the CRU's role in the scandal.

Noughties warmest decade on record

The noughties were the warmest decade on record in New Zealand, although last year was cooler than average, latest climate figures from the National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research (Niwa) show.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

No doubt the last ten years are the warmest of the entire millenium, but in checking against UAH MSU and NASA GISS , GISS 1980-1989 is still slightly warmer than 2000-2009, in MSU 2000-2009 is a wee smidgeon warmer but statistically insignificant. Funilly the only reason 1990-1999 isnt warmest is because the first portion of the decade was unusually cool.

In other words, NIWA (already compromised in the Climategate scandal) is still cherry picking their data to sell AGW.

Iran Shielding Its Nuclear Efforts in Maze of Tunnels

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The NY Times is trying to spin this as concealment of Iran's ultimate nuclear purposes, but the reality is that with the United States and Israel constantly talking about bombing Iran's power station, and with Israel having actually carried out such an attack against Iraq's power station (after which it was confirmed there had never been any weapons development there at all to begin with), Iran would be foolish not to take steps to protect their facilities.

US Avoids Technical Default By Three Days

Three days is all the buffer the administration’s reckless spending spree has afforded this country to avoid bankruptcy. Had one more Democratic vote dissented from the stopgap measure, the US would now be in technical default.

There is just $140 billion left before the revised debt ceiling is breached. We hope for the country’s sake that Bill refunding in January is massive, because as we already pointed out, on January 7th we expect another ~$130 of new Treasuries to be announced for auction by January 15th.

ACLU's response to body scanning machines at Tulsa Airport

TSA is also touting privacy safeguards including blurring of faces, the non-retention of images, and the viewing of images only by screeners in a separate room. We are skeptical of the privacy safeguards that the TSA is touting:

o These protections are the technological equivalent of making passengers parade naked through a separate room with a bag on their head. Passengers should not, and never would, tolerate that.

o Obscuring faces is just a software fix that can be undone as easily as it is applied. And obscuring faces does not hide the fact that rest of the body will be vividly displayed.

Window cleaning chemical injected into fast food hamburger meat

Fascinating. So you can inject a beef product with a chemical found in glass cleaning products and simply call it a “processing agent” — with the full permission and approval of the USDA, no less! Does anyone doubt any longer how deeply embedded the USDA is with the beef industry?

Apparently, this practice of injecting fast food beef with ammonia has been a well-kept secret for years. I never knew this was going on, and this news appears to be new information to virtually everyone. The real shocker is that “a majority” of fast food restaurants use this ammonia-injected cow-derived product in their hamburger meat. It sort of makes you wonder: What else is in there that we don’t know about?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unflipping believable!

If the USDA can do no better than this to protect US consumers,they should all be fired right now!

US Aid to Israel tied to military spending!

Just before Christmas,(when you weren't looking) the US President, Barack Obama, signed into law one of his country's biggest aid pledges of the year. It was bound not for Africa or any of the many struggling countries on the World Bank's list.

It was a deal for $US2.77 billion ($3 billion) to go to Israel in 2010 and a total of $US30 billion over the next decade.

Israel is bound by the agreement to use 75 per cent of the aid to buy military hardware made in the US: in the crisis-racked US economy, those military factories are critical to many towns.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

But the money going to those defense plants comes out of American pockets. YOU are being forced to buy Israel's weapons.*

This economy will not recover unless foreign companies are paying for the products they buy from American factories.

Old System Where Catholic Orders Used Poor Kids for Slave Labor Described in Complaint

Members of two Catholic religious orders trafficked in children for decades, taking poor kids from their parents in Britain and Malta and promising to educate them in Australia, then putting them to a life of forced labor and physical and sexual abuse, according to a federal class action in Manhattan.

Three former "child migrants" say the Congregation of Christian Brothers and the Order of the Sisters of Mercy took subsidies from the British, Australian and Maltese governments for the children's upkeep and education, but kept the money for themselves and gave the children nothing save hardship and pain, forcing them to beg for scraps of food and root around in pig troughs for sustenance.

Bankrupt and feeble Yemen ‘can survive for only one year’

“The drop in oil revenues, the increasing burden of maintaining the network of patronage, the various conflicts here and there, will bankrupt the treasury in about a year,” Mr al-Iryani told The Times. “The World Bank says two or three years but there’s no transparency so it’s difficult to say for sure.

“If you rationalise the Government you’ll cut down on corruption. That will free up funds to provide services to places like Marib and Jouf. The reason these places are lawless is that instead of sending schools and hospitals, the regime has sent tanks and cannon,” he said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The answers to Yemen's insurgencies are economic, political, and social, but not military.

But I would almost be willing to bet that the only answers the US brings to the table will be military only, with some kind of stranglehold/blackmail arrangement with the Yemeni government that any US aid will be predicated on a massive US military presence inside the country.

Mutual Fund Cash Levels Do Not Support this Rally

So are cash levels on their way down to 3.5 percent? Will they reach new historical lows in the coming months? Or is 3.8 percent low enough to signal the end of the current bull move?

No one really knows for sure. But what I do know is that it takes cash to fund a rally. And right now, historically speaking, mutual funds don’t have much of it. To me, that’s a sign of a very risky stock market environment.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Hezbollah gears up for new war

Hezbollah is rapidly rearming in preparation for a new conflict with Israel, fearing that Benjamin Netanyahu's government will attack Lebanon again prior to any assault on Iran's nuclear facilities.

In dramatic further evidence of growing tensions, the Observer has learned that Hezbollah fighters have been busy reinforcing fixed defence positions north of the Litani river.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The title of this article should have read "Israel gears up for a new war."

But Hezbollah is completely correct in their thinking that Israel has plans to re-invade Lebanon.

And the reinforcements of positions north of the Litani river indicates their certainty that this time, Israel will attempt to go all the way to the Litani river to claim it as Israel's territory; Israel is very desperate for its water.

Covert Market Operations?

We all know that the twelve members of the FOMC (the Federal OPEN Market Committee) meet eight times a year in private to decide what their OPEN market operations will be in the interim between meetings. The FOMC was created two months after the gold confiscation of 1933 by the Banking Act of 1933 (also known as Glass-Steagall) at the height of the banking crisis. The hope was that it would stabilize the banking system. The FDIC was also created by that same act.

Between 5,000 and 6,000 people earning $30,000 to $40,000 a year now work at roughly 110 collection agencies in and around Buffalo, an industry created with the help of seed money from the state of New York. The industry has been a rare economic bright spot in Buffalo, the nation's third-poorest city of its size, a place where 30 percent of the people live in poverty.

New Revelations Tear Holes in Nuclear Trigger Story

New revelations about two documents leaked to the Times of London to show that Iran is working on a "nuclear trigger" mechanism have further undermined the credibility of the document the newspaper had presented as evidence of a continuing Iranian nuclear weapons program.

A columnist for the Times has acknowledged that the two-page Persian language document published by the Times last month was not a photocopy of the original document but an expurgated and retyped version of the original.

The new revelations point to additional reasons why intelligence analysts would have been suspicious of the "nuclear trigger" document.

Court rules Obama’s detention powers not limited by laws of war

The Washington, D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals issued a ruling Tuesday that upholds the Bush administration's broad claims of executive power to detain non-citizens.

The case, Al-Bihani v. Obama, "was the first by the Circuit Court to directly apply the Supreme Court’s 2008 decision in Boumediene v. Bush creating a constitutional right for Guantanamo Bay detainees to challenge their captivity," according to the SCOTUS blog. "Unless reviewed and overturned either by the en banc Circuit Court or the Supreme Court, the new decision will control how scores of detainee cases are resolved in District Court in Washington."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder just how long it will take for this ruling to apply to citizens of the US.

T Pyxidis Soon To Be A Type Ia Supernova

This result is of special interest because it may shed light on the still unidentified type of stellar objects that explode as Type Ia supernovae, the kind of supernova which has been used to demonstrate that the expansion of the universe is accelerating.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is the kind of "science" that lured the climatologists into making the Climategate mistakes.

We have documented for years now how the observed reality of the skies does not exactly line up with the theory of a Big Bang followed by an expanding universe.

But just as climatologists lacked the courage to question the basic article of faith of human-caused global warming, and just like ancient scientists lacked the courage to question the article of faith that the Earth was the center of the universe, astronomers today lack the courage to question the article of faith that god(s) created the universe in a blinding flash of light and that it is still expanding outward.

So, ancient scientists created epicycles to explain why the observed data didn't line up with the dogma, climatologists fudged the data for the same reason, and now astronomers are playing with the accelerating expansion to try to get around some obvious paradoxes in the observed data.

To someone able to believe in gods and goddesses and miracles, that the expansion of the universe is accelerating might seem acceptable, indeed preferential to challenging the "reality" of the gods and goddesses being proffered by the child molesters with the collection plates.

But in a universe of mutual gravitational attraction, the rate of expansion should slow down. At the most generous, the rate of slowing might be imperceptibly small, but to claim that the universe' expansion accelerates because of an exploding star is akin to the claims that your SUV's exhaust is going to wipe out the entire planet Earth. The difference in scale between cause and hypothetical result are immense, far too large to be credible.

The fact is that so-called scientists lied to you to support an agenda of global warming, and there is therefore no reason to rule out that other so-called scientists lied about the Big Bang in order to support an agenda of religious faith.

After all, the whole point of the scientific method is the recognition that individual scientists are subject to ambition, greed, and outside influence as anyone else.

See THE "BIG BANG" IS JUST RELIGION DISGUISED AS SCIENCE

US drone missiles slaughtered 700 Pakistani civilians in 2009

US drone missile attacks have claimed the lives of over 700 Pakistani civilians since Barack Obama took office a year ago, according to figures released this week by officials in Islamabad. The escalation of Washington’s AfPak war, now in full swing, will mean the slaughter of thousands more men, women and children in 2010.

The grim death toll was announced in the Pakistani English-language daily Dawn Monday, just as news of the latest strike by a Hellfire missile made its way from an impoverished village near the Afghanistan border.

The missile strike left dead and buried in the rubble of their home a Pakistani teacher and his nine-year-old son.

The CO2 Lie

Climate Change: A new study shows that Earth's ability to absorb carbon dioxide from all sources, including man, has remained unchanged for 160 years. As it turns out, there may be no carbon to offset.

A major tenet of the global warming religion, straight from the Book of Gore, has been that the ability of the earth to handle increasing CO2 emissions is finite and that once the "tipping point" is reached, the earth will warm uncontrollably. Well, another climate domino has fallen — the myth that man-made CO2 is leading to climate catastrophe.

An advertising campaign touting the depth and quality of the Times newspaper's environment coverage has been slapped by an industry watchdog for inaccuracy. The paper has agreed to modify the advertisements, which are based on a false climate change claim.

The Times ads claimed that global warming had caused the North East shipping passage, the icy Arctic route which in summer links Russia's European ports to the Bering Strait, to be opened for the first time. In fact, the North East Passage opened in 1934, and was opened to overseas traffic after the fall of the Soviet Union.

Leading Global Warming Crusader: Cap and Trade May INCREASE CO2 Emissions

James Hansen - the world's leading climate scientist fighting against global warming - told Amy Goodman this morning that cap and trade not only won't reduce emissions, it may actually increase them:

The problem is that the emissions just go someplace else. That’s what happened after Kyoto, and that’s what would happen again, if—as long as fossil fuels are the cheapest energy, they will be burned someplace. You know, the Europeans thought they actually reduced their emissions after Kyoto, but what happened was the products that had been made in their countries began to be made in other countries, which were burning the cheapest form of fossil fuel, so the total emissions actually increased...

Rather than siding with the US on the big international issues, they are just as likely to line up with authoritarian powers such as China and Iran.

Every hour of everyday, every week in every month, in every year this situation becomes more deeply entrenched. I've been following this story since the day that JFK was murdered. Since that time all things political within the United States have consistently deteriorated until it has become crystal clear that the leadership of this country is entirely complicit in committing high-treason against the people of this nation. We need to begin to think before we act, because unless our actions are creatively thought through only chaos will result.

Shooting Handcuffed Children

The occupied government of Afghanistan and the United Nations have both concluded that U.S.-led troops recently dragged eight sleeping children out of their beds, handcuffed some of them, and shot them all dead. While this apparently constitutes an everyday act of kindness, far less intriguing than the vicious singeing of his pubic hairs by Captain Underpants, it is at least a variation on the ordinary American technique of murdering men, women, and children by the dozens with unmanned drones.

Committing treason for a piece of the pie

Committing treason for a piece of the pie

In the greatest fraud ever perpetrated upon any force of patriotic fighting men in the history of the human race, over 2 million men and women have been sent to fight and die in wars where victory was never possible, by government mandate. This has been a hallmark of America’s wars, set by the first Pres. Bush in his Gulf war. No useful assets like Saddam Hussein (or the Taliban, for that matter) can be eliminated in our wars of conquest. We are only interested in reeling in those who think that they are beyond control, restoring the balance of power, the balance of terror.

(WMR) -- WMR has learned from a veteran member of the White House Press Corps that the Obama administration has made it known through White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs and other White House Communications officials that certain questions posed by the reporters who cover the White House are definitely off-limits.
On the banned list are any questions about Obama’s post-Columbia University employment with Business International Corporation (BIC), a global financial and political information company that WMR previously reported was a front for the CIA.

An Introspective Look at the Future of America

My long view for the US is high inflation which will not show up in the government’s fraudulent statistics, along with a declining standard of living, increasing decay and ultimately leading to chaos, societal and government collapse in the US within a decade or two, maybe sooner.

Former EU Justice Commissioner: We need to Scan Inside Travelers’ Bodies For Bombs

The rampant delirium over the proposed implementation of full-body security scanners in airports reached new heights today as a former EU minister suggested that all passengers need to have their insides scanned to make sure they are not concealing bombs.

"...and if we're unsure about the scan we'll send you off to hospital to have you opened up so that we can have a good look around."

Powerful vested interests and climate sceptics will work overtime to block legislation and discredit the science ahead of the next global climate summit in Mexico

The only thing required to discredit 'global warming' science for most people in the northern hemisphere is for them to look out of the window and see the effects of the coldest winter in many years.

Military-Industrial Complex Set To Make A Killing From Body Scanners

The rabid calls for co-ordinated implementation of naked body scanners in airports across the planet, in the wake of the failed underwear bombing, will result in huge profits for the military industrial complex.

The giant defense contractor L-3 Communications is first line, having already landed a $165 million contract for body scanners from the Transportation Security Administration late last week.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Anyone who has ever done government contracting knows that this contract has been in the works for at least 6 months.

Two-state solution needed, and fast– for U.S. and Israel!

A few weeks back I wrote that there are too many Jewish Israelis in the American press, and Lisa Goldman, a writer in Tel Aviv, called me an anti-Semite. I’ve been working on a big post responding to her charge, but in the meantime I was back at it again last night, when I said that the New York Review of Books should stop hiring so many Israeli writers...

Deconstructing Simon Wiesenthal

The Simon Wiesenthal Center in Los Angeles, California, is named after the famed Austrian Nazi-hunter, Simon Wiesenthal, a connection that turns out to be appropriate in disturbing but unexpected ways. That is, both Simon Wiesenthal and the Center named after him have been accused of flagrant lying, exaggerations and half-truths.

The Yemen Hidden Agenda: Behind the Al-Qaeda Scenarios, A Strategic Oil Transit Chokepoint

For some months the world has seen a steady escalation of US military involvement in Yemen, a dismally poor land adjacent to Saudi Arabia on its north, the Red Sea on its west, the Gulf of Aden on its south, opening to the Arabian Sea, overlooking another desolate land that has been in the headlines of late, Somalia. The evidence suggests that the Pentagon and US intelligence are moving to militarize a strategic chokepoint for the world’s oil flows, Bab el-Mandab, and using the Somalia piracy incident, together with claims of a new Al Qaeda threat arising from Yemen, to militarize one of the world’s most important oil transport routes. In addition, undeveloped petroleum reserves in the territory between Yemen and Saudi Arabia are reportedly among the world’s largest.
