Hot Air Addendum 2 - Travis Kelly

Let's beat this bunch of scumbaggery to death with its own horse...Dr. Rajendra Pachauri and his shenanigans have pretty much done the job, but why leave anything to chance? So, without further ado, dear readers, here's another gem from Travis:

The climate debate has been construed as a left vs. right issue, but there is a third rail that could be called the Libertarian center, expressed by Alex Jones, Paul Watson and other writers at propagandamatrix.com and infowars.com. They've been attacking the AGW "consensus" for years, parallel with their often groundbreaking exposés on 9/11, the fraudulent War on Terror, bankster scams, and other machinations of the "deep state." They called the recent swine flu "pandemic" overblown hysteria serving only to enrich the vaccine manufacturers (the apocalyptic imagination at work again), and it now appears they were correct -- another tempest in a teapot.

They can be relied on for the conspiratorial interpretation of almost every big public event, some more plausible than others, and this includes AGW, which they insist is a Trojan Horse for globalist plans to engineer a world government. Not that all the IPCC scientists are part of some "vast globalist conspiracy," but that the AGW agenda is being exploited for ulterior purposes, much as Mencken observed:

"The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed -- and thus clamorous to be led to safety -- by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary."

I dismissed their claims for a long time -- a lot of conspiratorial research will make you somewhat paranoid. But now I'm not so sure. The utopian/dystopian dream of a world government is not delusionary -- it's pretty much what H.G. Wells called an "open conspiracy," and there is quite a public record of elite bigwigs lusting for a New World Order with they and their colleagues enthroned at the top of the pyramid:

"The Council on Foreign Relations is the American branch of a society which originated in England ... [and] ... believes national boundaries should be obliterated and one-world rule established."

"... the powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent private meetings and conferences."

There does exist, and has existed for a generation, an international anglophile network which operates, to some extent, in the way the radical Right believes the communists act. In fact, this network, which we may aversion to cooperating with the Communists, or any other groups and frequently does so. I know of the operations of this network because I have studied it for twenty years and was permitted for two years, in the early 1960’s, to examine its papers and secret records. I have no aversion to it or to most of its aims and have, for much of my life, been close to it and to many of its instruments. I have objected, both in the past and recently, to a few of its policies....but in general my chief difference of opinion is that it wishes to remain unknown, and I believe its role in history is significant enough to be known.
— Dr. Carroll Quigley, CFR member, college mentor of President Clinton, author of "Tragedy and Hope"

"Today America would be outraged if U.N. troops entered Los Angeles to restore order; tomorrow they will be grateful! This is especially true if they were told that there were an outside threat from beyond, whether real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well-being granted to them by the World Government."

— Dr. Henry Kissinger Evian-Les-Bains, France 1991

Kissinger is referring to the prospect of a different kind of "new Pearl Harbor" -- an alien sneak attack, "real or promulgated," the necessary pretext for uniting humanity behind a global government. It may sound dotty, but Ronald Reagan, Douglas MacArthur and others are also on record making curious statements about the "alien threat," and how it could bring us all together, in the same way that nations suffering domestic conflict often launch wars against a common enemy, "real or promulgated," to distract and divert the conflict outwards. According to Steven Greer and others, a long-term plan is in the works, Project Bluebeam (http://www.rumormillnews.com/cgi-bin/archive.cgi?read=42593) -- staging a fake alien invasion using holographic-equipped satellites, electromagnetic weapons, secret anti-gravity craft (UFOs) and other tools in the black-budget arsenal of various military-industrial complexes.

This may sound dotty, but just as Project Northwoods served as an early blueprint for 9/11, the CIA and Pentagon proposed another bizarre scheme for getting rid of Castro: submarines would launch special fireworks over Cuba as covert assets spread the rumor that the Second Coming was at hand, Jesus was displeased with the Communist dictator, and so the good Cuban Catholics would be terrified into overthrowing the red Dictator. Suffice it to say the technology for perpetrating such a hoax is far more advanced than it was in the 1960s.

It's obvious that AGW well serves this agenda, without requiring a difficult-to-pull-off Hollywood spectacle of Aliens ravaging the planet. AGW is a common threat to the planet, and only a united effort by international bodies can save the day. My friend who asserts that AGW is useful for fighting corporate domination of the planet has it somewhat backwards, I believe -- all the international trade agreements so far, NAFTA and the like, have served only to run roughshod over sovereign environmental and labor laws while augmenting corporate power. Although I believe in the U.N. mission in many cases, and it needs more authority to curtail some of the environmental destruction plaguing us, I'm suspicious of the powermongers who dream of running the world. Power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely, and there could be no more seductive power than that of global government, and I'm certain that the megalomaniacal world bankers that Quigley speaks are rejoicing over the cap-and-trade bonanza.

Samizdat: Hole in the AGWzone Layer


I was going to write an editorial about AGW, but Mr. Hogan's essay (below) stole my thunder, expressing my current views (always amenable to new evidence) perfectly -- an excellent critique that anyone with unfossilized views should take the time to examine.

Yes, I have too become an apostate, rejecting the so-called "consensus" that global disaster lurks due to humans belching CO2 into the atmosphere. It's become a partisan touchstone -- swear allegiance to AGW (Anthropogenic Global Warming), or you're in company with Rush, Sarah Palin and holocaust deniers. Guilt by association. Well, I did learn a lesson from Y2K -- the last time that experts (IT gurus) reached a consensus of imminent catastrophe for the planet, spurring me to stock up on survival goods and prepare for Mad Max scenarios...and not one damn thing happened -- not a single glitch, even in Third World nations where no code remediation took place. The lesson is this: apocalyptic thinking is a perennial habit, always with us, and scientists are not immune to it. Sometime in the future I will submit a list of the overwhelming "consensus" views of the scientific community in the last century that were eventually been proven dead wrong. The second lesson is: scientists, like the rest of us, are political creatures.

Well, AGW is a different issue -- but again I feel that I've been misled by the infamous hockey puck graph -- extend it back several 1000 more years, and you see a completely different story, which has nothing to do with AGW. It's clear from the whole history of climate change on this planet (not the cherry-picked selections for the hockey puck), that humanity has far more to fear from another Ice Age than any marginal increase in warming. Ice Ages are much longer than the interglacial periods, bury enormous tracts of agricultural land, and tie up gigatons of crucial fresh water in ice. But there would more beachfront property.

Eventually, as other advanced civilizations on far older alien planets have probably learned, we will develop means to engineer or at least influence the climate to some degree. And perhaps we will evolve a way to purge politics from science. Our survival may depend on it.

Already I can hear the claims that Mr. Hogan is not a scientist, or is a charlatan, or perhaps has a secret affection for underage girls on internet chat sites -- focusing on his credentials, rather than the hundreds of dissenting or skeptical scientists he cites. Or that the Medieval Warm Period is a "fantasy," or some kind of ambiguous, irrelevant data, rather than the inconvenient truth it poses to the AGW dogma.

(Un)Settled Science - Hole in the AGWzone Layer!
by James P. Hogan
January 14, 2010

When beliefs that are normally regarded as the province of science become subject to an ideology that decides in advance what answers are required and censors the evidence in ways that steer beliefs toward them, then, regardless of what incidental use might be made of computers, satellites, and other kinds of advanced engineering and technology, what's going on isn't science. But most of the world has never learned to tell the difference – or maybe cared that much.

And that's serious in a society where scientists have come to occupy the position previously enjoyed by the high priesthood, of being revered as the source of true knowledge and providing the justifications for the policies that the governing authority pursues. The danger is that pronouncements made in the name of science will continue to be unquestioned and used as pretexts for controversial or oppressive rulings long after any grounds on a scientific basis have ceased to exist.

I'm writing this at Christmas time, 2009. We've just witnessed a circus of deception and foolishness in Copenhagen that marks a new high in the attempted foisting of a politically motivated ideology upon the world in the guise of bogus science. Fortunately – for the time being at any rate – the canniness of the developing nations in demanding that the supposedly rational West literally put its money where its mouth was by playing out a lemming-like stampede to economic self-destruction brought home the absurdity to a degree that even our scientifically clueless best and brightest couldn't buy, and the whole thing largely came to nothing.

Claims that human activity was – or was even capable of – measurably affecting the Earth's climate made little sense to begin with. For as far back as patterns can be reconstructed, the climate has always cycled between being warmer or cooler, wetter or drier, stormy or settled, and the changes observed during the industrial era have been well inside the swings that have taken place in the past. So there's no reason to suppose that anything, human-induced or otherwise, is affecting the climate abnormally. Compared to water vapor and the activity of the Sun, carbon dioxide plays a minor role in determining temperature, and the amount generated by Nature dwarfs anything that humans add. In any case, the times of rising temperature recorded over the ages have all happened first, not the other way around, so increases in CO2 levels are a consequence not a cause. And even if humans were having the influence that has been claimed, the results would be overwhelmingly beneficial. Living things thrive in warmer environments, not frigid ones. Far more people die in winter from the effects of cold than from heat waves. Carbon dioxide is plant food, the basis of all life. Crops and flora of every kind grow more luxuriantly with a richer supply of it. The big advances in human civilization, reflected in the rise of cultures and times of elevated expansion and exploration, inventiveness, agriculture, artistry, and science, all occurred in warmer climatic periods. Anyone who is sincere about praising the virtues of a "green" planet should love it.

Shortly before Copenhagen, the suspicions that even superficial consideration of such points should have raised were confirmed beyond doubt with the revelations of collusion, going back years, among a cadre of climate researchers to manufacture a scientific case supporting a quasi-religious world view and presumption of the relationship between man and nature that is being given as the justification for measures that would impose drastic energy cutbacks and costly changes in living standards worldwide. The practices employed include massaging and falsification of data; suppression and destruction of conflicting evidence; rigging of computer models to deliver predetermined results; withholding of information from independent examination; the exclusion of dissenters from the official peer review process; and the intimidation of journals from publishing their objections. For those who may have missed the controversy going on behind the scenes while the mainstream media are apparently doing their best to play it down, or have just returned from a vacation on Mars, a good overview by Paul Driessen is posted here. But a couple of examples will give the idea:

The figure above was published by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) in its 1990 maiden assessment and shows the pattern of variation in the Earth's temperature over the previous thousand years that had been generally accepted up until then, based on data from such sources as tree-rings, lake sediments, ice cores, and historic documents. It clearly depicts the "Medieval Warm Period" (MWP) of 900–1300 AD, when the Vikings maintained settlements and farms on the green coasts of Greenland and wine grapes grew in Scotland, and the "Little Ice Age" (LIA) that followed, centered on 1600 AD, in which winter fairs were held on London's frozen River Thames, and R. D. Blackmore's novel Lorna Doone had trees on Dartmoor bursting with sounds like cannon shots under the pressure of internal ice. These periods are part of a series of natural cycles that go to greater extremes, such as one around six thousand years ago, when the Sahara was grassland watered by rivers, and southern England basked in subtropical luxuriance. (Humans and polar bears survived just fine.)

Ever since humans began turning applied intelligence in the form of technology to making life more secure, comfortable, and generally less burdensome, there has been a pervasive element among them who took it upon themselves to oppose and condemn what most were inclined to view as a bettering of their condition. There seems to be something akin to a religious guilt complex at work, in which the seeking of creature comforts and a reprieve from toil and drudgery is seen as sinful, and atonement calls for renouncing the benefits and returning to the rigors of a simpler but more virtuous, soul-cleansing life. (It's interesting to note that the guilt tends to be expressed primarily by the more affluent, articulate, and influential, whose own standards will be little affected by the sacrifices demanded of those who are supposed to do the atoning.)

Things reached a crescendo in the later decades of the twentieth century, when soaring productivity and such revolutionary innovations as affordable air travel and communications for the masses, and the prospect of unlimited energy threatened wanton iniquity exploding on a worldwide scale. Reactions from the righteous came swiftly with the campaigns to demonize DDT, pesticides, fertilizers, chemicals, and nuclear energy, and apocalyptic auguries of planetary destruction from exhaustion of the food supply (late 1960s); a carbon-burning-induced ice age (mid 1970s); jetliner exhausts, particularly the SST (late 1970s); depletion of the ozone layer (1980s). But of all the environmental alarms that were sounded and had their day, the banner issue to emerge, behind which all the disparate cohorts of doom and ruin rallied, was global warming.

For anyone with stakes in the manmade disaster business, it had everything going for it: lurid images of polar meltdown, drowning cities, and dried-up farmland; a threat of global dimensions that demanded coordinated global action, and hence the institution of a global policing authority that had long been the dream of those who would abolish sovereign nation states; limitless opportunities for tax-funded "further research" and worthy political causes; and all the usual suspects to blame for opponents of industrial civilization and the Western way of life in general. Frustrated academics and intellectuals with cravings for recognition but nothing to offer that anyone would vote for at the ballot box or freely spend their money on in the market place could become voices behind the throne and make the world notice them. Even the villains of the piece had something to gain with the promise of enormous subsidies and tax incentives in return for diverting their efforts into environmentally friendly projects and "alternative" energy sources that had the one common attribute of being utterly incapable of supplying the needs of an advanced, technology-driven society, and likely to price energy – and hence just about everything else – beyond the means of most people in all but approved and rationed amounts.

Moreover, a believable mechanism by which man's nefarious actions, if left uncurbed, might heat the planet to the verge of spontaneous combustion was right there. All major industries and large-scale transportation systems depend ultimately on fuel burning, with the consequent release of carbon dioxide (apart from nuclear, but that had effectively been put on hold for the time being). Carbon dioxide contributes to the "greenhouse effect," the natural process by which the atmosphere keeps the Earth around 33°C warmer – and therefore inhabitable – than it would otherwise be at this distance from the Sun. Provided one didn't look too closely at the numbers, which showed things like CO2 being a minor greenhouse gas compared to water vapor, and the bulk of it coming from natural sources such as oceanic outgassing, volcanic activity, and the byproducts of life and decomposition, CO2 could be presented as the principal mover, and human activity as the agency primarily responsible for generating it. In an age conditioned to accepting anything that comes out of a computer with uncritical awe and bedazzlement – Garbage In, Gospel Out – the next best thing to a infallible papal pronouncement on the veracity of the theory as an article of faith could be produced in the form of complex computer models with the appropriate assumptions and outcome built-in.

It was the perfect formula. A universal gravy train. The Great Social Equalizer – although some would remain more equal than others. The road to power of truly totalitarian dimensions. . . . There was only one small thing wrong. The record of temperatures past said that the Earth had already been through variations greater than anything that could be coaxed out of CO2-driven computer models while humans were still depending on sailing ships and water wheels, and nothing remarkable had come of it.

In an article that appeared recently in American Thinker, Marc Sheppard describes the astonishment, in 1995, of a geophysicist at the University of Oklahoma on receiving an e-mail from a leading figure in climate change research that said, “We have to get rid of the Medieval Warm Period.” And they did.

This is the version of the temperature record that appears in the IPCC's 2001 Assessment, and is particularly stressed in the Summary for Policymakers, the highly-politicized synopsis that is all that most of the people making decisions that affect the lives of millions read, and which commands the bulk of media attention. It's the curve that has come to be known as the "Hockey Stick," from its shape of temperatures fluctuating about a fairly level mean implicitly for millennia, and turning upward sharply around the beginning of the twentieth century to mark the commencement of an unprecedented increase coincident with the growth of human population and industrialization. The construction merges data from a number of sources, applying certain statistical procedures – which in itself is not unusual when normalizing large data sets – and subjecting the result to various "corrections," said to compensate for biases and drifts.

Challenges from skeptics followed immediately on grounds of both the validity of the data used and the methodology employed. Since reliable and systematic temperature measurements are not available from before about 1850, "proxy" figures were used instead for the earlier portion, calculated from such sources as analysis of tree rings and lake-bottom sediments, while actual thermometer figures were used for the more recent period. But tree rings are affected by rainfall, humidity, diseases, and other factors, and teasing out the effect attributable to temperature is controversial. Critics contended that the results as presented made the earlier period appear cooler than it was, while the later part did the opposite – all of which, of course, would suit a predetermined agenda for demonstrating recent warming quite well.

The objection to the later thermometer measurements was that they turned out to be based essentially on figures from ground stations, which independent surveys have revealed as being poorly sited to an astonishing degree in locations guaranteed to read high, with nearby air-conditioner outlets, large expanses of concrete and asphalt, parked vehicles, and the like
. In many cases the surroundings have changed with time, so that what the temperature increases recorded over the years and duly fed into the statistical surveys were in fact measuring was local urban development and the expansion of airports, not changes in the climate. The more rural the ground stations, the less the effect. Measurements from satellites and balloons, by contrast, showed no consistent warming trend.

A basic principle of science is openness, which requires data and methods to be made available to others so that results can be verified by duplicating them – or else falsified. The authors of the Hockey Stick refused to disclose their raw data or details of the processing methods and computer codes that they had applied. One priceless reason, given in response to a request from an Australian scientist, was, “Why should we . . . when your whole aim is to find something wrong with it?” (!) Nevertheless, a couple of Canadian researchers managed to put the story together through some intricate detective work and demonstrated that the model was rigged to produce a hockey-stick shape – even if fed random data or telephone numbers.

Things didn't end there, unsurprisingly. Defenders closed ranks to uphold the warming thesis and contest the refutation, and the controversy continues heatedly at present, but you'd never know it from following the mainstream media or listening to inane assertions that "the science is settled." Many in the alarmist camp are reported to be having second thoughts, but the diehards argue that, while the original hockey stick derivation may have had its flaws, other bodies of evidence show that the trend is real nevertheless. An example that continues to be cited in papers published by major science journals is a collection of tree ring measurements from Siberia that in fact formed one of the data sets incorporated into the initial study. However, when skeptics finally obtained the original data after encountering strenuous efforts to withhold them, they found that the sample used consisted of just 12 trees selected from a set of 252 – which included 34 from the same geographical vicinity as the selected 12. The illustration below shows how much difference the selecting – known as "cherry picking" – made.

The red line is the result obtained with data from just the 12 selected trees – the picture the world is given as proof that we're melting the Antarctic ice cap. (Even if it were true, how a rise of 2.5°C is supposed to melt billions of tons of ice covering an area one and a half times the size of the United States, in places extending as deep as 16,000 feet, at an average temperature of -60°C, is never explained.) The black line shows what happens when the same procedure is applied to the full data set of all 252 trees. No comment necessary.

Here's another example, this time from a station at Darwin in Northern Australia. The red line shows the huge warming reported after "adjustments" to the original data that as far as I can ascertain have never been clearly accounted for. The unadjusted data, shown in blue, once again actually exhibits cooling. Taken from Anthony Watts's site, which also provides a detailed discussion. James Delingpole of the UK Telegraph gives further examples of similar cases around the world and shows how data from areas that show no warming, or even actual cooling, have been dropped and replaced by extrapolations from surrounding regions, sometimes at considerable distances away, to produce an impression of net overall warming. In summary, there appears to be substantial evidence, from a number of independent sources, that the data used for the IPCC's conclusions have been adjusted in undocumented ways, and those adjustments account for practically all the warming we are told has been caused by humans.

So what effect, if any, have humans really had? The doctrine reflected in the IPCC's position is that temperatures have risen through the twentieth century, the prime cause is carbon dioxide produced by humans, and if left to continue, the result will be planetary disaster. There is little dispute that carbon dioxide levels have increased. Whether this can unequivocally be attributed to humans in the way that is usually assumed, however, is another question. Studies of ice cores show that in the natural cycle of things, temperature rises come first by anything from decades to centuries, so much of the increase in CO2 could well be an effect of recovery from the Little Ice Age. This is supported by the fact that most of the warming that did take place in the 20th century – around 0.6°C – took place before 1940, whereas CO2 didn't really take off until the postwar growth of industrialization, so it's difficult to see how the latter could have caused the former. Reports are available from the times before the issue became a political matter subject to Orwellian rewrite, and independent studies have been conducted based on all the data available today without the unexplained adjustments. What they show is:

* Warming from around 1920 to the early 1940s. (NASA has admitted that 1934 was the US's warmest year, not 1998 as recently hyped, and that three of the warmest years were before 1940. Said to be due to a "mathematical error.")

* Cooling from after 1940 to the late 1970s. (Most people today will have forgotten, or maybe never knew, that this was when the same science journals and news sources were warning of an end to life as we know it with the imminent onset of a new ice age. The culprit was fossil-fuel burning, the means this time being particulates in the atmosphere cutting down incoming sunlight. The solution was the ending of life as we know it by the same kind of taxes, cutbacks, and global policing as are being called for today.)

* Warming from the late 1970s to about 1998

* No change from 1998 to 2001, and net cooling since then which pretty much negates the warming experienced in the first part of the century.

Hence, the only period for which both CO2 and temperature happened to be rising together is the twenty-odd years from the late seventies to the late nineties. As far as any evidence goes, this is the entire case for manmade global warming and all the panic that has ensued because of it.

We are told that consensus among the world's scientists has put the subject beyond further debate. But something that the mainstream media have been largely silent about is that more than 4,000 scientists, including 72 Nobel Prize winners, from 106 countries, have signed an appeal addressed to the world's leaders expressing grave reservations and calling for policymaking to be founded on scientific criteria and not on irrational preconceptions. “The greatest evils which stalk our Earth,” they state, “are ignorance and oppression, and not Science, Technology, and Industry, whose instruments, when adequately managed, are indispensable tools of a future shaped by Humanity, by itself and for itself.” If consensus is to be the measure, then that's three times the number of experts cited by the UN IPCC; and even these turn out to be mostly political representatives or graduates in the humanities, with no training in the philosophy or methods of science.

Over 34,000 scientists have signed a petition saying there is no convincing evidence that gases released through human activity pose any threat to the future.

Nevertheless, with eyes and minds fixated on political and ideological goals, and all faculties that might connect with reality apparently on hold, the coterie who would dictate the world's future met with the intent of agreeing an agenda that would send energy usage and living standards back to levels appropriate to the nineteenth century, while four inches of snow fell outside, and unprecedented early blizzards were blanketing Europe and setting records in the American Midwest. This at the end of a year that has seen China's coldest winter in 100 years, Baghdad having its first snow in recorded history, record levels of Antarctic sea ice, and record cold in Minnesota, Texas, Florida, Mexico, Australia, Iran, Greece, South Africa, Greenland, Argentina, and Chile.

But such inconvenient truths as facts don't matter when you're pushing an ideology, either because it's what will bring big breaks your way or because you genuinely believe you're saving the planet. The great fear underlying it all is the neo-Malthusian specter of overpopulating a world with limited resources and going downhill in an orgy of Mad Max degeneracy and desperation when everything finally runs out. That's a legitimate view to hold. And it might even be correct. But it's a social and political issue that should be honestly addressed and argued as such. Trying to justify a preconceived dogma through phony, trumped-up science isn't the way to go. The fraud will eventually be exposed, and the main victim will be trust in real science of every kind – both of which are already happening.

I've written previously on why I believe the fears to be misplaced. Applying observations drawn from the population dynamics of animals to human societies is to deny the qualities which set humans apart. Unlike animals, who simply consume resources and react with fixed behaviors to their environment, humans create resources and change their behavior according to the new conditions that they bring about. A resource isn't a resource until the knowledge and the means exist to make use of it. New technologies create new resources, and as the record of history shows, always on a scale that dwarfs what went before. Furthermore, ample evidence exists to show that when human societies reach sufficiently high levels of affluence and well-being, birth rates decline and populations eventually stabilize in ways that Thomas Malthus and his intellectual descendants of present times fail, or refuse, to consider.

Humans do seem to have amazing reserves of tenacity and the ability to muddle through in spite of the odds, however, and a better world will very likely come out of it all one day. A world with the wisdom to realize that being able to enjoy the natural wonders of our planet and the universe, and at the same time take advantage of the benefits that human ingenuity and creativity make possible are not mutually exclusive. The inhabitants of that age will maybe look back on the present as a kind of Dark Age – a time when people finally figured out, in the form of science, a dependable way of distinguishing what's probably true from what probably isn't, and discovered the astounding things that technology is capable of – but then lacked the wit to apply either body of knowledge effectively to the betterment and benefit of all.

I sometimes wonder if a race of super-intelligences exists in some transcendental reality, who in spite of their godlike qualities found themselves bedeviled by the same social and political problems as ourselves, and created the cosmos as a gazillion Petri dishes in a gigantic genetic programming experiment to see if any of the life forms that emerged in it might come up with an answer that worked. I know it won't come as much comfort to those who want to believe that there's something out there that watches over us and cares, but it seems to me that such an intelligence would do things for its reasons, not what we think ought to be its reasons, and the fate of any particular species in the collection – let alone an individual lost in among it – would not be a matter of any great concern. Which means it's pretty much up to us, doesn't it?

The freedom of speech and the freedom of the press have not been granted to the people in order that they may say things which please, and which are based upon accepted thought, but the right to say the things which displease, the right to say the things which convey the new and yet unexpected thoughts, the right to say things, even though they do a wrong."-- Samuel Gompers (1850-1924) Source: Seventy Years of Life and Labor, 1925

Gordon Duff (The Baggage of America Extremism…” 12/2009) : “Eight years of bizarre "Christian Zionism," a military run by religious fanatics and a government of drugstore cowboys and phony evangelists was unprepared to guide a superpower toward policies of responsible world leadership. Now, President Obama is afraid to stop "driving over a cliff" simply because nobody wants to tell the American people the truth, how stupid and useless we have actually become, and how idiotic our policies have been. It is assumed that so many Americans are mentally defective, addicted to imaginary vaccine plots and secret UN invasions, that acting like a responsible and intelligent world leader would not seem "credible."

Norman Soloman (Media Monitors Network “Mr President War is not Peace”, Dec 10, 2009), questions the intent and eloquence of Obama’s speech and strikes a warning note:

“War is not peace. It never has been. It never will be…….in the name of pragmatism, Obama spoke of "the world as it is" and threw a cloak of justification over the grisly escalation in Afghanistan by insisting that "war is sometimes necessary" -- but generalities do nothing to mitigate the horrors of war being endured by others.”

"And this I believe: that the free, exploring mind of the individual human is the most valuable thing in all the world. And this I would fight for: the freedom of the mind to take any direction it wishes, undirected. And this I must fight against: any idea, religion, or government which limits or destroys the individual." -- John Steinbeck - (1902-1968) - Source: East of Eden, 1952

"It is frequently said that speech that is intentionally provocative and therefore invites physical retaliation can be punished or suppressed. Yet, plainly no such general proposition can be sustained. Quite the contrary.... The provocative nature of the communication does not make it any the less expression. Indeed, the whole theory of free expression contemplates that expression will in many circumstances be provocative and arouse hostility. The audience, just as the speaker, has an obligation to maintain physical restraint." -- Thomas I. Emerson Source: The System of Freedom of Expression, 1970

"If you wish to experience peace, provide peace for another." - Tenzin Gyatso, The 14th Dalai Lama quotes (Dalai Lama, b.1935)

"When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace." Jimi Hendrix

"If everyone demanded peace instead of another television set, then there'd be peace." - John Lennon

All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.” —Arthur Schopenhauer, German philosopher

Congresswoman Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.): "We Now Have A Total Gangster Government" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=thR-lVuztIY&feature=related

speaking on the House floor: Now we've moved into the realm of gangster government . . .

“Pagan” philosopher Aristotle wrote against men practicing usury in his “Politics”: “Money, being naturally barren, to make it breed money is preposterous and a perversion from the end of its institution, which was only to serve the purpose of exchange and not of increase…..Men called bankers we shall hate, for they enrich themselves while doing nothing”.

Bankster = Banker + Gangster, a word popularized in the 1930s by Ferdinand Pecora. . In implacable style, Pecora badgered Morgan partners into admitting that they had paid no taxes for 1931 and 1932 — an incendiary revelation when the country was undertaking huge public works projects to combat unemployment. That the Morgan men had avoided taxes because of stock market losses was lost amid the hubbub. No less inflammatory was exposure of Morgan’s “preferred list” by which the bank’s influential friends participated in stock offerings at steeply discounted rates. The renowned names on the list, including Calvin Coolidge, the former president, and Owen J. Roberts, a Supreme Court justice, shocked the nation with its unseemly association of money and power. Ron Chernow is the author of “The House of Morgan”

- U.S. President Abraham Lincoln, Nov. 21, 1864 - (letter to Col. William F. Elkins) - Ref: The Lincoln Encyclopedia, Archer H. Shaw (Macmillan, 1950, NY)” "As a result of the war, corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed. I feel at this moment more anxiety for the safety of my country than ever before, even in the midst of war. God grant that my suspicions may prove groundless."

“The European Union and International Monetary Fund have told them to replace private debts with public obligations, and to pay by raising taxes, slashing public spending and obliging citizens to deplete their savings. Resentment is growing not only toward those who ran up these debts . . . but also toward the neoliberal foreign advisors and creditors who pressured these governments to sell off the banks and public infrastructure to insiders.” – Ellen Brown

George Bush: The Unauthorized Biography by Webster G. Tarpley & Anton Chaitkin: "President Franklin Roosevelt's Alien Property Custodian, Leo T. Crowley, signed Vesting Order Number 248 [11/17/42] seizing the property of Prescott Bush under the “Trading with Enemy Act”. The order, published in obscure government record books and kept out of the news, Note #4 explained nothing about the Nazis involved; only that the Union Banking Corporation was run for the 'Thyssen family' of 'Germany and/or Hungary' -- 'nationals ... of a designated enemy country.' "By deciding that Prescott Bush and the other directors of the Union Banking Corporation were legally 'front men for the Nazis', the government avoided the more important historical issue: In what way 'were Hitler's Nazis themselves hired, armed, and instructed by' the New York and London clique of which Prescott Bush was an executive manager”

“The bad news is the international bankers, with their New World Order, are getting desperate to keep control of us. Look at their latest hoax with the underwear patsy bomber.

The good news is that even the people in our supermarket are catching on. So, we figure just because the powerful are determined to ruin the country, why should they ruin our day.” Frank Fugelman, Rainbow Valley Observer, 1/06/10

"I wish it were possible to obtain a single amendment to our Constitution, taking from the federal government the power of borrowing." — President Thomas Jefferson

C.E.M Joad (Guide to Modern Wickedness, 1936), wanted to offer another angle on the warmongering: “Capitalism provides for it in advance by establishing Fascist regimes, Fascism being the method by which, in the last phase of capitalism, the dominant capitalist class reduces its own working class to such a state of dupery and subjection that they are willing to fight without question for the interests of their masters.”

"All history is one long story to this effect: men have struggled for power over their fellow men in order that they might win the joys of earth at the expense of others, might shift the burdens of life from their own shoulders upon those of others." -- William Graham Sumner - (1840-1910) American academic and professor at Yale College

"We create an environment where it is alright to hate, to steal, to cheat, and to lie if we dress it up with symbols of respectability, dignity and love." -- Whitney Moore, Jr.

"Are right and wrong convertible terms, dependant upon popular opinion?" -- William Lloyd Garrison - (1805-1879)

Abraham Lincoln observed, "Wise men established these great self-evident truths, that when in the distant future some man, some faction, some interest, should set up the doctrine that none but rich men, or none but white men, were entitled to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, their posterity should look up again at the Declaration of Independence and take courage to renew the battle which their fathers began."

Mike Prysner (“amazing speech by an Iraq war veteran” December, 25 2009),: “Our real enemy is not the ones living in a distant land whose names or policies we don't understand; The real enemy is a system that wages war when it's profitable, the CEOs who lay us off our jobs when it's profitable, the Insurance Companies who deny us Health care when it's profitable, the Banks who take away our homes when it's profitable. Our enemies are not several hundred thousands away. They are right here in front of us.”

In 1969, Rockefeller Insider Dr. Richard Day predicted the future in these terms: "Travel ... would become very restricted. People would need permission to travel and they would need a good reason to travel. If you didn't have a good reason for your travel you would not be allowed to travel, and everyone would need ID... later on some sort of device would be developed to be implanted under the skin that would be coded specifically to identify the individual."

"The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary." -- H.L. Mencken (1918)

“There are an estimated 100,000 or more Satanic cults in America. Those numbers sadly are out-dated and from the 1980's. The numbers are much higher now of course. But it's not a priority of the F.B.I. to track anymore. Police are NOT allowed to call a ritual murder done to someone as so. There are certain codes for these type Satanic murders. This is a fact, ask any police officer. The F.B.I. Learned long ago when they mention "Satanic cult" in the news people go ape shit over it. So most cases are hidden as just murders by crazy people. But they never mention the Satanic cult involved or the actual ritual. When kids come up missing, investigate case workers, day-care workers even teachers as well. Guaranteed someone close to the child knows something..it's just who exactly. The child was scoped out for ceremonies I bet. I know this is hard if you lost a child. But chances are these people had something to do with arranging it, not some drunken pirate as the media will spin it.” – Anonymous posting from Craig's List-Seattle

John Hylan was the Mayor of New York in 1922. He wrote: "The real menace of our republic is this invisible government which like a giant octopus sprawls its slimy length over city, state and nation. Like the octopus of real life, it operates under cover of a self-created screen. It seizes in its long and power(ful) tentacles our executive officers, our legislative bodies, our schools, our courts, our newspapers, and every agency created for the public protection. . . let me say at the head of this octopus are the Rockefeller-Standard Oil interests and a small group of powerful banking houses generally referred to as the inter- national bankers. . . . They practically control both political parties, write political platforms, make catspaws of party leaders, use the leading men in private organizations, and resort to every device to place in nomination for high public office only such candidates as will be amenable to the dictates of corrupt big business. . . . They use the columns of these papers to club into submission or drive out of office public officials who refuse to do the bidding of the powerful corrupt cliques which compose the invisible government."[15]

Professor Carroll Quigley studied the secret movement and wrote about it in his book, Tragedy and Hope: A History of the World In Our Time: "There does exist, and has existed for a generation, an international Anglophile network which operates, to some extent, in the way the radical Right believes the Communists act. . . . I know of the operations of this network because I have studied it for twenty years and was permitted for two years, in the early 1960s, to examine its papers and secret records. . . ."[16]

Terrorism of Imperial/Colonial Mafia Organized Crime Wars

"All murderers are punished unless they kill in large numbers and to the sound of trumpets" -- Voltaire

"The West won the world not by the superiority of its ideas or values or religion but rather by its superiority in applying organized violence. Westerners often forget this fact, non-Westerners never do." ---Samuel P. Huntington

Mark Twain on the Philippine-American War: “The completeness of the victory is established by this fact: that of the six hundred Moros not one was left alive. The brilliancy of the victory is established by this other fact, to wit: that of our six hundred heroes only fifteen lost their lives. General Wood was present and looking on. His order had been, ‘Kill or capture those savages.’ Apparently our little army considered that the ‘or’ left them authorized to kill or capture according to taste, and that their taste had remained what it has been for eight years, in our army out there-the taste of Christian butchers. . . .The enemy numbered six hundred-including women and children-and we abolished them utterly, leaving not even a baby alive to cry for its dead mother. This is incomparably the greatest victory that was ever achieved by the Christian soldiers of the United States.”

Marine Major General Smedley Butler: “War is just a racket…. I spent most of my time being a high class muscle- man for Big Business, for Wall Street and for the Bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster ….I helped make Mexico… safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefits of Wall Street. …. Looking back on it, I feel that I could have given Al Capone a few hints.”

David Perez (“Imagine”, Information Clearing House, 02/2009), attempts to set out the humanistic concerns: “Imagine being in a room of maimed, deformed and tortured Iraqis, Afghans and Palestinians, accompanied by widows and orphans mourning because their entire family has been exterminated. I imagine this roomful of walking dead sitting around while my friends and I discuss how “realistic” we in the U.S. must be with our electoral politics, how our expectations need to “practical,” how peace is just so damn “complicated.” …. imagine these victims looking at us with blank, scarred faces as we congratulate ourselves for selecting a new President who talks about “our God-given right to lead,” about our duty to spread U.S.-style democracy throughout the globe, and how we are now just so “proud to be American.”

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. advice: “The chain reaction of evil... wars producing more wars... must be broken, or we shall be plunged into the dark abyss of annihilation.”

False Flag Terrorism Operations

An aide to Rep. Louise Slaughter said, "If the American people find out what really happened on 9/11/01, our government is finished."

"There is something fundamentally wrong with the American thought process on the War on Terrorism. American people would need to see and understand the real world affairs that their leaders and government are terrorizing the humanity with no other reason except to assume political domination and control the natural resources of the helpless nations under the false pretext of “terrorism”..." “It is the policy of the United States government to provoke violent extremist groups into action. Once they are in play, their responses can then be used in whatever way the government that provoked them sees fit. And we also know that these provocations are being used, as a matter of deliberate policy, to rouse violent groups on the "Af-Pak" front to launch terrorist attacks.” -- Chris Floyd (“Darkness Renewed: Terror as a tool of Empire”)

Chris Floyd (“Darkness Renewed: Terror as a tool of Empire”, 04/2009): “The point is that once again, a violent group has been knowingly prodded into murderous action. Even better, it has now set itself up as a "deadly terrorist threat" to the sacred Homeland itself: yet another made-to-order super villain from central casting….. It is worth looking again at the implications of this policy of terrorist-tickling. As we noted recently, such things are not just counters on the Great Game board: they are deadly realities that kill, maim and despoil multitudes of innocent people around the world…. In other words – and let's say this plainly, clearly and soberly, so that no one can mistake the intention of Rumsfeld's plan – the United States government is planning to use "cover and deception" and secret military operations to provoke murderous terrorist attacks on innocent people. Let's say it again: Donald Rumsfeld, Dick Cheney, George W. Bush and the other members of the unelected regime in Washington plan to deliberately foment the murder of innocent people – your family, your friends, your lovers, you – in order to further their geopolitical ambitions.”

J. Edgar Hoover, ex-FBI director on the New World Order conspiracy: "The individual is handicapped by coming face-to-face with a conspiracy so monstrous he cannot believe it exists."

"If the 9/11 attacks were orchestrated or at least deliberately allowed by the Bush-Cheney administration and the Pentagon, then the motivation to cover up this murderous and treasonous act would be unlimited. No expenditure of time and money would be con- sidered too great." -- Professor David Ray Griffin [1]

"If the military had had the amount of time they said they had - forty-seven minutes to shoot down United 93, or even fourteen minutes to shoot down American 77 - and had scrambled their jets, it was hard to figure how they had failed to shoot down at least one of the planes. A careful examination of the facts compared with the NORAD account also revealed other problems - it just didn't make sense why NORAD's scrambled aircraft were sent out over the Atlantic Ocean if they were pursuing United 93 and American 77." -- Thomas Kean: Chairman of the 9/11 Commission [2]

". . . American 11, the plane they believed was the first one to hit the World Trade Center, is actually still flying - still hijacked - and now heading straight for D.C. Whatever hit the first tower, it wasn't American 11." -- Michael Bronner: 9/11 LIVE: The NORAD TAPES [3]

Colonel Marrs, the C.O. of NORAD, told Bronner: "I think with having 29 different reports of hijackings nationwide, for us it was next to impossible to try and get back there and figure out the fidelity that the 9/11 commission ended up being able to show." [28]

The jets that were scrambled from Langley were trying to intercept the hijacked plane on radar that was flying toward Washington, D.C., at 9:20 a.m., - American Flight 11 - the plane that "crashed" into the North Tower at 8:46 a.m. Michael Bronner wrote: "The call that sets off the latest alarm comes from Boston and is wholly confounding: according to Scoggins, the Boston manager, American 11, the plane they believed was the first one to hit the World Trade Center, is actually still flying - still hijacked - and now heading straight for D. C. Whatever hit the first tower, it wasn't American 11. . . . The 9:21:50 call stated: 'OK. American Airlines is still airborne - 11, the first guy. He's heading towards Washington. O.K., I think we need to scramble Langley right now. And I'm - I'm gonna take the fighters from Otis and try to chase this guy down if I can find him." [29]

"The Talmud is, then, the written form of that which in the time of Jesus, was called the Traditions of the Elders." — Rabbi Michael L. Rodkinson

"The Jewish religion as it is today traces its descent, without a break, through all the centuries, from the Pharisees." — Universal Jewish Encyclopedia

“And Jesus went into the temple of God, and… overthrew the tables of the moneychangers..” Matthew 21:12

"Be careful," Yashua-Joshua-Jesus said to them. "Be on your guard against the yeast of the Pharisees and Sadducees [read: Babylonian Talmudists]." John 8:44 You [Babylonian Talmudists] belong

to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father's desire. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies”.

"And the Lord said unto me, A conspiracy is found among the men of Judah, and among the inhabitants of Jerusalem . . . For according the number of thy cities were thy gods, O Judah; and according to the number of the streets of Jerusalem have ye set up altars to that shameful thing, even altars to burn incense unto Baal. Therefore pray not thou for this people, neither lift up a cry or prayer for them: for I will not hear them in the time that they cry unto me for their trouble." (Jeremiah 11:9, 13-14)

“Howbeit no man spake openly of him for fear of the Jews”. (John 7:13)

“American Jews are becoming less enamoured of Israel, thanks to Israeli websites. It seems that news sources like Ha’aretz are having an unfortunate, salubrious effect on Jewish minds. As increasing numbers of U.S. Jews read direct accounts of Israel’s atrocities, they build up a healthy resistance to hasbara. In response, hasbarats are appealing to English-speakers in Israel to pick up the hasbara reins to convince people that life in Israel is good!” …. “The perversity is palpable. Clearly, we are back in 1933. Just as Zionists at that time helped the Nazis sabotage negative reports of anti-Jewish persecution, zionists are now sabotaging Jewish media reporting on anti-Arab persecution, like Cast Lead” –quotes from somewhere sent by a reader

“If you want to know where the power lies, then ask whom you cannot criticize” - Kevin Alfred Strom, Revisionist Historian

“I asked Mary Anne to list the activities the Illuminati engage in. Here it is: Bestiality; sodomy; necrophilia; incest; wife swapping; child porn (they make it; real source of Hefner, Flynt, Polanski fortunes is children, not adults); snuff films; sex orgies; force children to have sex with farm animals & family pets; ritual murder and human sacrifice. Then, there is organized crime: drugs, prostitution, guns etc.” – Dr. Henry Makow

Big Pharma

"The medical cartel, at the highest level, is not out to help people, it is out to harm them, to weaken them. To kill them. At one point in my career, I had a long conversation with a man who occupied a high government position in an African nation. He told me that he was well aware of this. He told me that WHO is a front for these depopulation interests."--Jon Rappoport interview

"The medical monopoly or medical trust, euphemistically called the American Medical Association, is not merely the meanest monopoly ever organized, but the most arrogant, dangerous and despotic organisation which ever managed a free people in this or any other age. Any and all methods of healing the sick by means of safe, simple and natural remedies are sure to be assailed and denounced by the arrogant leaders of the AMA doctors' trust as fakes, frauds and humbugs. Every practitioner of the healing art who does not ally himself with the medical trust is denounced as a 'dangerous quack' and impostor by the predatory trust doctors. Every sanitarian who attempts to restore the sick to a state of health by natural means without resort to the knife or poisonous drugs, disease imparting serums, deadly toxins or vaccines, is at once pounced upon by these medical tyrants and fanatics, bitterly denounced, vilified and persecuted to the fullest extent"---J.W Hodge, M.D

A large part of this medical disaster that the United States currently experiences is due to the way our medical community is organized. Basically it is not organized to heal and to cure disease; the medical community, particularly at its upper levels, is a commercial venture organized to make money for its practitioners. The Cardiac surgeon, for example, does nothing whatsoever to cure cardiac disease. Three to five percent of the heart surgery patients die on the operating table. Cardiac surgery provides no better three year survival rate than no treatment at all. A Harvard survival study of 200,000 patients revealed that the long term survival rate of patients subjected to surgery was no better than the survival rate of those that had no surgery. GANGSTERS IN MEDICINE By Thomas Smith

"1935 The Pellagra Incident. After millions of individuals die from Pellagra over a span of two decades, the U.S. Public Health Service finally acts to stem the disease. The director of the agency admits it had known for at least 20 years that Pellagra is caused by a niacin deficiency but failed to act since most of the deaths occured within poverty-striken black populations."---A History Of US Secret Human Experimentation

Media Censorship/Propaganda

President Harry Truman: "The only thing new in the World is the history you don't know"

Only fools believe what they are told, when it is clear that much else is being hidden. – Anthony Lawson

“They have succeeded in dominating us more through ignorance, than through force”. -- Simon Bolivar

"Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities." -- Voltaire

"A slave is he who [thinks he is free yet] cannot think for himself" – Euripides

“The hell of human suffering, evil and oppression is paved with good intentions. The men who have most injured and oppressed humanity, who have most deeply sinned against it, were according to their standards and their conscience, good men; what was bad in them, who wrought moral evil and cruelty, treason to truth and progress, was not at all in their intentions, in their purpose, in their personal character, but in their opinions.” -- Robert Briffault, Professor at Cambridge University (The Making of Humanity, 1918)

"Listen to everyone, read everything, believe nothing unless you can prove it in your own research." - William Cooper

“Of course you will continue to cover-up this truth because your jobs, your life and that of your family depend on your silence, but by now thousands of ordinary people around the world know the score on America” -- a reader

Edward Bernays developed the propaganda/mind-control techniques that are being used to get the American people to hate Moslems. He wrote: "The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of."[12] Edward Bernays referred to an invisible government. Does the U.S. have "an invisible government?" Yes. A small group of powerful men (and a few women) have controlled the United States for over 100 years. President Woodrow Wilson wrote about them in his book, The New Freedom (1913).

I'll be back soon, dear readers...have a good day.

ClimateGate Analysis By John P. Costella, B.E.(Elec.)(Hons.) B.Sc.(Hons.) Ph.D.(Physics) Grad.Dip.Ed.

Absolutely AWESOME.

I cannot contain my excitement upon reading this document.

The problem with the LEAKED emails (I CANNOT STRESS THIS ENOUGH...the emails were NOT "HACKED"; they were LEAKED) is that in their original form, it tends to overwhelm the lay person as "too much data"; all at once.

Costella took the time to go through the emails, examine the data therein, and made it immediately accessible to anyone who comes in contact with said document.

With that being said...I have added the document to my blogroll, but I did not make a posting of this until I had a chance to peruse the 142 page examination of just what occurred behind the scenes.

I woke up with the runs this morning...and I don't believe it had anything to do with my spinach, feta cheese and raspberry viniagrette salad last night; it was more to do with reading about the hugest batch of scumbaggery I have ever seen.

So, without further ado, I present to you, dear readers, ClimateGate Analysis By John P. Costella, B.E.(Elec.)(Hons.) B.Sc.(Hons.) Ph.D.(Physics) Grad.Dip.Ed. - I want to keep this on the top of the page until further notice, and I don't plan to post anything else for the entire weekend...unless we have another "Weiner Bomber" or some such idiocy in the headlines.

I await your comments upon reading this expose. Also, I wish to weigh upon the the concept of "peer-review".

Let's start with a simple equation: "Peer-review" + ideology = SCUMBAGGERY.

"Peer-review" is the process by which scientific discoveries are vetted; one of the points stressed by Costella is that any scientist, given the data and the means for measuring said data, should be able to replicate said results. In this case, you will note numerous examples of obfuscating information where the actual facts are being willfully hidden from those attempting to verify the "facts" bandied about by Jones, Mann, et. al.

In this case, "peer-review" is simply "gaming the system" - all attempts were made to control the data, or, as one of the scumbags himself put it, to "hide the decline".

I hope that this ends any further discussion about ClimateGate not being a real concern for you and I.

Let Not The Enriching Of The Unjust Continue

One of the responses to the letter proffered to Australia PM Kevin Rudd from Lord Chirstopher Monckton was so awesome, I would be remiss in not reprinting it here:

Gail Combs (15:24:56) :

JonesII (08:19:21) :

“The UN climate change convention will be just one of the many legally binding conventions already approved and accepted, and currently being operational, which have the common objective of establishing a new world government.
From the World Health Organization to the International Court of Justice, etc.
It is too late by now.

No it is not. The Pseudo-socialists have worked long and hard here in the USA to convince people that once a treaty is signed it is legally binding and there is no way out. Bull poo.

“This [Supreme] Court has regularly and uniformly recognized the supremacy of the Constitution over a treaty.” – Reid v. Covert, October 1956, 354 U.S. 1, at pg 17.

The Reid Court (U.S. Supreme Court) held in their Opinion that,
“… No agreement with a foreign nation can confer power on the Congress, or any other branch of government, which is free from the restraints of the Constitution. Article VI, the Supremacy clause of the Constitution declares, “This Constitution and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all the Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land…’

“There is nothing in this language which intimates that treaties and laws enacted pursuant to them do not have to comply with the provisions of the Constitution nor is there anything in the debates which accompanied the drafting and ratification which even suggest such a result…

“It would be manifestly contrary to the objectives of those who created the Constitution, as well as those who were responsible for the Bill of Rights – let alone alien to our entire constitutional history and tradition – to construe Article VI as permitting the United States to exercise power UNDER an international agreement, without observing constitutional prohibitions. (See: Elliot’s Debates 1836 ed. – pgs 500-519).
“In effect, such construction would permit amendment of that document in a manner not sanctioned by Article V. The prohibitions of the Constitution were designed to apply to all branches of the National Government and they cannot be nullified by the Executive or by the Executive and Senate combined.”

also states “A treaty can be nullified by a statute passed by the U.S. Congress (or by a sovereign State or States if Congress refuses to do so), when the State deems a treaty the performance of a treaty is self-destructive. The law of self-preservation overrules the law of obligation in others….”

We in the USA can undo all the damage done by treaties such as NAFTA and WTO...If we can find some politicians with the backbone to stand up to the international corporations and bankers who run the world. Whether the damage done in the EU can be undone is another question since I do not understand the ins and outs of the politics over there but again the key is real honest and intelligent leadership which unfortunately ins in very short supply throughout the world.

As John Sherman said in referring to the National Banking Act:
“The few who could understand the system will either be so interested in its profits, or so dependent on its favours, that there will be no opposition from that class, while on the other hand, the great body of the people mentally incapable of comprehending the tremendous advantage that capital derives from the system, will bear its burdens without complaint, and perhaps without even suspecting that the system is inimical to their interests.”

That was a mouthful, yes? Well...here's the news, dear readers - WE THE PEOPLE have, unbeknownst to ourselves, allowed scumbaggery to be the norm when it comes to government policy. Our Constitution does not allow for unconstitutional laws to be passed; and yet, we have allowed for our disenfranchisement to be written into our laws.

That is a bunch of crap.

We need to remove any and all politicians who do not perform the will of WE THE PEOPLE FIRST, SECOND and LAST. There is no bloody reason to accept any less.

Christopher Dodd and Byron Dorgan have made announcements indicating that they will end their terms in public office...but where are they going? Something tells me that Chris will be joining Goldman Sachs, since one of his last acts was to ensure that those unproductive scumbags got BONUSES FOR DOING A BAD JOB.

When you enable scumbags, this is the result to you and I.

The American Idiot

Incredible video.

Dear readers, I had run across the story of the TSA harassment of a blogger, but the follow-up story is even more amazing: TSA Withdraws Subpoenas Against Bloggers. As you can see by one blogger's proper reaction to such scumbaggery, there is no percentage in caving in to scumbags. The blogger who did now has an unusable laptop.

Now...as a computer technician, I can say that the TSA agent who "copied" Frischling's hard drive did a fucking piss-poor job of it. From some of the comments, it is implied that the copied hard drive is the one within the laptop, as there is evidence of the device having been opened.

Steven Frischling...take this advice from someone who knows: if you are using that machine for anything but playing Bubble Trouble by Ambrosia Software, you're setting yourself up for more harassment. That machine has been fitted with trackware and probably now has some sort of locator and microphone set for one purpose - to draw out your anonymous sources. I guarantee that if you brought that machine to an Apple Store, they'd find that the original hard drive is missing.

A Quick Start In 2010

Happy New Year, dear readers!

WattsUpWithThat has posted a letter from Lord Monckton - enjoy.

This from Freedom Is Truth In Action:

Some douche bag was making fun of Jesse Ventura mainly the global warming episode. After i schooled him on here the whole bulletin disappeared so i guess ill explain it again. #1 The earths overall temp. is dependent on solar winds and solar flares.#2 CO2 is not a major green house gas 90%of the all green house gases is water vapor. #3 the largest contributor of CO2 is not humans its the ocean all animals breath out CO2 the ocean is most of the Earth and animals inhabit it 3 dimensionally. #4 taxes {the reason they perpetrate the lie} don't solve problems they collect money. The Republicans and Democrats are 2 wings of the same bird and they are not on the peoples side. Do your research.
