"The only safeguard to protect the American people from government’s control over the money and the guns is the U. S. Constitution. The only protection the Constitution has from government corruption or perversion, is the people demanding that the government adhere to the principles of the constitution or face the consequences of armed revolution." -- Ron Ewart

33 Conspiracy Theories That Turned Out To Be True, What Every Person Should Know...

I find it extremely odd that the assumption is on thousands of participants in a conspiracy. I, for one, find it hard to believe any conspiracy involving more than a handful of people but the fact remains that there have been conspiracies in our world, proven and not made up, that involved many hundreds of people. It's not a matter of opinion, it's a matter of fact.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Climategate proved that conspiracies can involve a few ringleaders aided by thousands of useful idiots.

Haass: Regime Change Is the Only Way to Stop Iran

The nuclear talks are going nowhere. The Iranians appear intent on developing the means to produce a nuclear weapon; there is no other explanation for the secret uranium-enrichment facility discovered near the holy city of Qum.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The facility at Qum was not "discovered"; it was announced by Iran to the IAEA, in accordance with the terms of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, which Iran is in compliance with, the US is not, and Israel has never signed.

I really miss the days when Newsweek could be trusted to report the FACTS.

Coming Tax Hikes Will Cause Greater Economic Collapse Than 2008-09

Government spending has already hugely increased, and so has the size and scope of government, but next year there will also be substantial tax increases for a great many Americans. ...Add on to all of these increases the biggest government deficits and spending increases (to 26.5% of gross domestic product from 21%) in half a century, the protectionism of free trade downsizing through the "buy American" requirements, China import restrictions, and the administration limitations of Columbia, South Korea, and Panama free trade agreements, and we have a very different, and not very prosperous, America ahead of us. ...

Wall Street Journal: Ivins Not the Anthrax Killer

So, even though the public may be under the impression that the anthrax case had been closed in 2008, the FBI investigation is still open—and, unless it can refute the Livermore findings on the silicon, it is back to square one.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Meanwhile, to this very day, the FBI, which has made Dr. Steven Hatfill's life a living hell, blamed Dr. Ayaad Assaay, then tried to frame the dead guy, Dr. Bruce Ivins, has REFUSED to investigate the most likely suspect; a man who was caught entering the lab where the Anthrax used in the letters was kept, after he had been fired for a racially motivated attack on a co-worker.

The Forfeiture Racket

Over the past three decades, it has become routine in the United States for state, local, and federal governments to seize the property of people who were never even charged with, much less convicted of, a crime. Nearly every year, according to Justice Department statistics, the federal government sets new records for asset forfeiture. And under many state laws, the situation is even worse: State officials can seize property without a warrant and need only show “probable cause” that the booty was connected to a drug crime in order to keep it, as opposed to the criminal standard of proof “beyond a reasonable doubt.” Instead of being innocent until proven guilty, owners of seized property all too often have a heavier burden of proof than the government officials who stole their stuff.

Mom Has Mild Learning Disability, so State Takes Her 4 Day Old Baby Away, then Tops It off by Pretending Baby's Dad Doesn't Exist

Seventeen-year-old Kerry Robertson of Fife, Scotland has apparently been found by some authority or other to have "mild learning difficulties." She became pregnant by her boyfriend, artist Mark McDougall, 25. Last September, they decided to get married, but the Fife Council intervened and prevented the wedding from taking place. By what authority or for what reason the Council did that, I have no idea. Perhaps our readers from the U.K. can enlighten us. Does the Council have authority over issuance of marriage licenses? On what basis did it deny this couple the right to marry?

Israeli settlers invade At-Tuwani village

On Tuesday, 26 January 2010 approximately fifteen Israeli settlers from the Israeli settlement of Ma’on and the Israeli outpost of Havat Ma’on attacked Palestinians in the village of At-Tuwani. The settlers were accompanied by Israeli soldiers in three army jeeps and the settlement security agent of Ma’on. Villagers from At-Tuwani arrived, protesting the settlers coming into their village. An Israeli soldier punched a Palestinian villager, who was hospitalized for his injuries. Immediately thereafter, Israeli settlers began throwing stones at the Palestinian villagers while soldiers fired three canisters of tear gas at Palestinians.

Afterwards, the settlers drove to the entrance of At-Tuwani, and began throwing stones at passers-by on the road.

Commercial Real Estate and Tishman and Blackrock Walking Away from a $4.4 Billion CRE Deal. How to Lose 66 Percent on an 11,000 Unit Property. Why Walking Away from CRE is no different from Walking Away from Residential Real Estate.

It is becoming more of a preferred strategy to systematically walk away from commercial real estate debt. We have now had two large Wall Street organizations in Morgan Stanley and Tishman and Blackrock Inc. deciding, by voluntary choice, to walk away from their contractual obligations on commercial real estate. Now much has been made regarding the commercial real estate debacle because some $3.5 trillion in commercial real estate debt is outstanding. This number is enormous and many of the bank failures that we’ll be seeing on Fridays this year will come from bad loans in the commercial sector.

Auschwitz survivor: ‘Israel acts like Nazis’

Dr Hajo Meyer, 86, who survived 10 months in the Nazi death camp, spoke out as his 10-day tour of the UK and Ireland – taking in three Scottish venues – got under way. His comments sparked a furious reaction from hardline Jewish lobby groups, with Dr Meyer branded an “anti-Semite” and accused of abusing his position as a Holocaust survivor.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is rich! Israelis, most of whom were never in Nazi Germany, never hesitate to exploit the Holocaust for political and financial gain, but when one of the few actual survivors of the Nazi labor camps dares to criticize Israel, he is "abusing" his position!!!!!

False-flag attack in Greece?

According to this Greek news report, the arsonists who set fire to a synagogue in Greece turned out to be two Britons, two Americans from the NATO Base, and one Greek (who is a food supplier for the Base).

Another false flag?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Google Translation:

Serious political dimensions with extremely suspicious and dark aspects has now taken the case of double arson of the Jewish synagogue in Chania, on 5 and January 17 with the discovery of the perpetrators of the shameful act. Εχει προκληθεί πολιτικός και διπλωματικός σάλος καθώς έγινε γνωστό ότι οι δράστες είναι... It has caused political and diplomatic tumult as it became known that perpetrators are ... δύο Αμερικανοί από τη «διευκόλυνση» (δηλαδή τη βάση) των ΗΠΑ στη Σούδα, δύο Βρετανοί από τη βάση του ΝΑΤΟ εκεί και ένας Ελληνας, ο οποίος έχει σχέση με την τροφοδοσία της νατοϊκής βάσης! two Americans from the "facility" (ie base) of the U.S. in Souda, two Britons from the NATO base there and a Greek, who is related to fuel the NATO base! Οπως αποδεικνύεται από τις λήψεις καμερών επιτήρησης καταστημάτων που βρίσκονται στον ίδιο δρόμο με τη συναγωγή, δράστης του πρώτου εμπρησμού ήταν ο ένας από τους δύο Αμερικανούς με συνεργούς τούς υπόλοιπους τέσσερις, ενώ δράστης του δεύτερου εμπρησμού ήταν ο μεγαλύτερος σε ηλικία από τους δύο Βρετανούς (33 ετών, ενώ ο δεύτερος είναι 23) με τους υπόλοιπους να φυλάνε τσίλιες! As demonstrated by the store surveillance camera downloads on the same street with the synagogue, the first arson offender was one of the two Americans with four other accomplices, while the second offender was arson, the older of the two Brits (33 years, while the second is 23) with the other guard to look out!

Οι δύο Αμερικανοί φυγαδεύτηκαν αμέσως στο εσωτερικό της βάσης τους και ενδεχομένως να έχουν ήδη μεταφερθεί εκτός Ελλάδας, ενώ κλιμάκιο της αμερικανικής πρεσβείας έσπευσε αμέσως στα Χανιά για να κουκουλώσει την υπόθεση και να υποβαθμίσει όσο το δυνατόν περισσότερο την αναφορά στους Αμερικανούς δράστες από τα ελληνικά μέσα ενημέρωσης. The two Americans smuggled directly within the database and may have been transported out of Greece and the U.S. embassy team immediately rushed Hania to cover it up and degrade as much as possible the reference to the American perpetrators of the Greek media .

Οι Αμερικανοί απαιτούν για τον σκοπό αυτόν τη συνεργασία της ελληνικής αστυνομίας, στην οποία άλλωστε οι υπεύθυνοι της αμερικανικής βάσης αρνήθηκαν να δώσουν τα ονόματα των δραστών. Americans need to end the cooperation of the Greek police, which are also responsible for the U.S. base refused to give the names of the perpetrators. Εννοείται ότι η τοπική ΕΛ.ΑΣ. It is understood that the local Police έχει σηκώσει τα χέρια ψηλά και το θέμα χειρίζεται απευθείας το υπουργείο Δημόσιας Τάξης λόγω του εκρηκτικού πολιτικού χαρακτήρα του θέματος. has raised his hands up and handle the matter directly to the Ministry of Public Order that the explosive political issue.

Κάτι ανάλογο συμβαίνει και με τους δύο Βρετανούς. Something similar happens with both British. Οι αρχικές πληροφορίες τούς φέρουν ως εκπαιδευτές της ειδικής μονάδας Ναυτικής Αποτροπής του ΝΑΤΟ, αλλά τα τελευταία 24ωρα καταβάλλεται προσπάθεια να παρουσιαστούν ως... The initial information they have as educators of dedicated unit Naval Deterrence of NATO, but the last 24 hours trying to present as ... εργαζόμενοι σε μπαρ (!) ώστε να υποβαθμιστούν όσο το δυνατόν περισσότερο οι επικίνδυνες για το Λονδίνο πολιτικές διατάσεις του θέματος και φυσικά οι δικαιολογημένες αντίστοιχες υποψίες. employees in a bar (!) that can decline as much as possible the dangerous London political dimensions of the issue and of course the respective justified suspicion.

Το πιο διασκεδαστικό είναι ότι στην αναγνώριση των δραστών έπαιξε καθοριστικό ρόλο, όπως μεταδίδεται από τα Χανιά, το κλιμάκιο της... The most amusing is that the identification of the perpetrators was crucial, as transmitted from Chania, the team of ... ισραηλινής μυστικής υπηρεσίας Μοσάντ που βρίσκεται μόνιμα στην Κρήτη, το οποίο «εισέβαλε» στα γραφεία της ΕΛΑΣ στα Χανιά και απαίτησε από τους Ελληνες αστυνομικούς να μαζέψουν το οπτικό υλικό από όλες τις κάμερες των καταστημάτων, βάσει του οποίου όντως αποκαλύφθηκαν οι Αμερικανοί και οι Βρετανοί δράστες, μαζί με τον Ελληνα «τσιλιαδόρο» συνεργάτη τους. Israeli secret service Mossad located permanently in Crete, which "invaded" the offices of ELAS in Chania and demanded by Greek police to collect visual material from all the cameras in stores, on which indeed revealed the Americans and British authors together with the Greek "lookout" partner. Προφανώς τώρα οι Ισραηλινοί πράκτορες θα τραβούν τα μαλλιά τους! Obviously now the Israeli agents would pull their hair!

Η αποκάλυψη της ταυτότητας των δραστών κατεξευτέλισε παράλληλα το Στέιτ Ντιπάρτμεντ, το οποίο έσπευσε να βγάλει ανακοίνωση προς τους Αμερικανούς πολίτες προειδοποιώντας τους για τον αντισημιτισμό των... The disclosure of the identity of the perpetrators flouted while the State Department, which rushed to pull out a notice to U.S. citizens warning them of anti-Semitism ... Ελλήνων! Greek! Τι έχει άραγε η Ουάσιγκτον να πει τώρα που όλοι γνωρίζουν ότι δύο Αμερικανοί και όχι Ελληνες πολίτες συμμετείχαν στους εμπρησμούς, με τον έναν μάλιστα εξ αυτών να είναι και ο εμπρηστής την πρώτη φορά; What Does Washington have to say now that everyone knows that two Americans and not Greek citizens participated in the arson, in one of them even to be the arsonist the first time?

Παρόμοιο διασυρμό υπέστη και η αμερικανική εφημερίδα «Γουόλ Στριτ Τζέρναλ», η οποία την Πέμπτη δημοσίευσε ημισέλιδο κατάπτυστο άρθρο με τίτλο «Η ντροπή της σύγχρονης Ελλάδας», για να καταγγείλει τον υποτιθέμενο αντισημιτισμό των Ελλήνων. A similar denigration suffered by the U.S. newspaper Wall Street Tzernal, which Thursday published a half-despicable article entitled "The shame of modern Greece," to denounce the alleged anti-Semitism of the Greeks. «Η Ελλάδα υποφέρει από έλλειψη ηθικής, θρησκευτικής και κοινωνικής ηγεσίας, που να καταγγέλλει την αισχύνη του αντισημιτισμού» έγραφε λάβρη η αμερικανική εφημερίδα, επαινώντας παράλληλα την «αξιοθαύμαστη εξαίρεση του πρώην συντηρητικού πρωθυπουργού Κωνσταντίνου Μητσοτάκη»! "Greece has suffered from a lack of moral, religious and social leaders who denounce anti-Semitism disgrace" wrote lavri American newspaper, while praising the "remarkable exception of former conservative prime minister Constantine Mitsotakis'!

Ακρως ενδιαφέρον είναι ότι η αμερικανική εφημερίδα ορίζει ως δήθεν αντισημιτισμό... Very interesting is that the American newspaper defines alleged anti-Semitism ... «τη συνηθισμένη τώρα σύγκριση του Ισραήλ με τους ναζί στα ελληνικά μέσα ενημέρωσης»! "Now the usual comparison of Israel with the Nazis in Greek media"! Αποδεικνύεται έτσι ότι όλος αυτός ο θόρυβος αποσκοπεί συν τοις άλλοις στο να πιέσει τα ελληνικά ΜΜΕ να σιωπούν μπροστά στα εγκλήματα που διαπράττουν τα αιμοσταγή στρατεύματα του Ισραήλ σε βάρος αμάχων Παλαιστινίων. Demonstrate that all that noise is inter alia to urge the Greek media keep silent in front of crimes committed by the savage Israeli troops against Palestinian civilians. Μάταιος ο κόπος των Αμερικανών. Vain the toil of Americans. Δεν θα το καταφέρουν. We will not succeed.

Προβοκάτσια ξένων υπηρεσιών; Provocation of foreign service;

Η ΕΘΝΙΚΟΤΗΤΑ των δραστών εγείρει ένα κρίσιμο πολιτικό ερώτημα: οι Βρετανοί και οι Αμερικανοί από τις βάσεις πυρπόλησαν δύο φορές τη συναγωγή λόγω προσωπικής πολιτικής εμπάθειας εναντίον των Εβραίων ή έδρασαν κατόπιν εντολών μυστικών υπηρεσιών των χωρών τους; Εχουμε να κάνουμε δηλαδή με τυχαίες πράξεις αντισημιτικού κρετινισμού τεσσάρων ανεγκέφαλων Αμερικανών και Βρετανών ή με πολιτική προβοκάτσια ξένων πρακτόρων με στόχο τη δυσφήμηση της Ελλάδας στον εβραϊκό κόσμο που κατέχει κορυφαίες θέσεις στο παγκόσμιο τραπεζικό σύστημα, σε μια φάση που η χώρα μας βρίσκεται σε πολύ δύσκολη οικονομική κατάσταση και επομένως έχει ανάγκη τις ξένες τράπεζες; The nationality of the perpetrators raises a crucial political question: the British and the Americans burned the bases twice in arriving at the personal political hate speech against Jews or acted upon orders secret services of their countries? We can do that with random acts of anti-Semitic cretinism four mindless American and British political provocation or foreign agents to defamation of Greece in the Jewish world held top positions in world banking system, at a time when our country is in a very difficult financial situation and therefore requires foreign banks?

“What I Saw That Day…Israel’s 1967 Holocaust of American Servicemen Aboard The USS Liberty And Its Aftermath”

I looked out to see the torpedo boats coming at us at a high rate of speed. Unlike the jets, the torpedo boats were proudly flying their flag, a Star of David. When I saw the flag and the high rate of speed they were coming at us, I breathed a sigh of relief. Foolishly, I assumed that our beloved ally had scared off the jets and were coming to our rescue.

The delusion lasted for only a minute until I saw the splash of several torpedoes being dropped in the water as they headed towards us. Unable to find a big enough vein during the first time with the air assault, the vampire now moved to a different part of our neck, searching out the jugular.”

Focus on Haiti: Washington's Militarized Takeover

After Washington ousted President Jean-Betrand Aristide in February 2004, UN Blue Helmets (MINUSTAH) occupied Haiti as paramilitary enforcers. They still do, subordinate to around 20,000 US land and sea based troops, including Marines, Army 82nd Airborne paratroupers, Navy assault ships, and Coast Guard vessels offshore, a powerful force for indefinite occupation, severe repression, and ruthless exploitation for American interests - obstructing, not providing, humanitarian aid, and facilitating potentially hundreds of thousands of deaths from starvation, dehydration, disease, untreated wounds, trauma, and for some perhaps just giving up and expiring unnoticed, unreported, and uncared about by forces able to help.

Israel Likely to Join OECD in 2010: “If You Have Enough Money, We’ll Call You a Democracy”

"What can activists for a just peace and social justice do?"

"Activists from OECD countries should protest that Israel’s accession detracts from the meaning of democracy. If Israel is given this international award while it continues to occupy and dispossess the Palestinian people, then the OECD is complicit in these human rights violations. If Israel becomes an OECD member, it further demonstrates the connection—which OECD countries would rather not admit—between democracy and free market for the developed world and the violent oppression and poverty in the developed world. What kind of free market is grounded in military occupations?"

Patriot Missile Deployment Is Against Russia - Lavrov

Poland is giving the impression that it is strengthening its defences directly against Russia, says Moscow's foreign minister Sergei Lavrov.

The comment comes after reports this week that Poland is to situate US Patriot missiles 100 kilometers from the border with Kaliningrad, Russia. The Kremlin is seeking full information on the announcement, said the Russian foreign minister.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is apparent that there are elements in the US government just slobbering all over themselves in the potential of bringing back the cold war.

Israeli Information Minister Slams All Reports on Gaza War as Anti-Semitic

Just days before Israel is expected to release its own report on the January 2009 invasion of the Gaza Strip, Israeli Information Minister Yuli Edelstein declared that the UN report on the war, and every other report since the war ended, “are simply a type of anti-Semitism.”

Report says Al-Qaeda still aims to use weapons of mass destruction against U.S.

The report, by a former senior CIA official who led the agency's hunt for weapons of mass destruction, portrays al-Qaeda's leaders as determined and patient, willing to wait for years to acquire the kind of weapons that could inflict widespread casualties.

The former official, Rolf Mowatt-Larssen, draws on his knowledge of classified case files to argue that al-Qaeda has been far more sophisticated in its pursuit of weapons of mass destruction than is commonly believed, pursuing parallel paths to acquiring weapons and forging alliances with groups that can offer resources and expertise.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

More ratcheting up the fear factor, I see.

First, a couple of quick factoids, and then to the matter at hand.

The word "al Qaeda", in Arabic, means "the base".

However, in colloquial Arabic slang, it means "the toilet". Could someone please explain to me why any self-respecting insurgency name their movement "the toilet"?!?!?

And good old (and quite dead) CIA asset Osama Bin Laden (a fact thoroughly ignored in this article). Although made the scapegoat of the 9/11 attacks, here is the truth about how deep that relationship between the CIA and Ben Laden actually went.

As reported at:



"Tim Osman (Ossman) has recently become better known as Osama Bin Ladin. "Tim Osman" was the name assigned to him by the CIA for his tour of the U.S. and U.S. military bases, in search of political support and armaments. [...] There is some evidence that Tim Osman ... visited the White House. There is certainty that Tim Osman toured some U.S. military bases, even receiving special demonstrations of the latest equipment. Why hasn't this been reported in the major media?"

Apparently, this particular author loves to lump every single insurgency into "the toilet", oops, I'm sorry, Al Qaeda.

I wish absolutely no ill or injury coming to the people of the US, coming from any direction, period, end of discussion.

However, that being said, what mightily unnerves me is the potential reality that the next massive attack against the US may not come from any insurgent groups pwishing us ill of some sort.

But such an attack may well come from our own government in the form of a "false flag" shock and awe event, which will so psychologically devastate the American people that they will clamor for martial law, and line up behind whatever devastation the government has in mind for the alleged perpetrator (let's say, Iran, for example.)

People like this Rolf Mowatt-Larrsen are paid to pump up the volume on collective fear, and to deflect attention away from the real issues.

People around the world do not hate America "because we are free"; they hate us, particularly in areas like Pakistan, and Afghanistan, because they are seeing their loved ones being blown to smithereens to order to control their countries' natural resources, like oil, which are crucial to military operations, and drugs, from which so many profit so handsomely.

They hate us for our support of US-backed dictators, like Mubarak in Egypt, Karzai in Afghanistan, and Selah in Yemen. This country's officials cannot speak with straight faces about their commitment to democracy in the world while supporting such rulers because they are "our thugs".

It is not the insurgents, ultimately, who are the culprits here: it is the colossal, consistent failure of US foreign policy-makers to find ways of obtaining what this country needs without going to war to get it.

China and Russia have been making deals around the globe to secure the energy resources they need; we've been waging wars to obtain the same objectives.

Please remember: as late as August of 2001, the Bush administration was negotiating with the Taliban for pipeline rights in Afghanistan. Apparently, the price the Taliban demanded was "too high".

And we all know what happened next.

Jan 26 08:52


A further abuse, of course, is not only that we are no longer seeing the easily debunked bin Laden doubles whose video tapes were “mysteriously” released by SITE Intelligence, the Rita Katz/Israeli group that seems to find them in trash bins behind delicatessens. The “new” audio tape itself contains statements claiming credit for 9/11 in direct contradiction to the real bin Laden videos, the only ones authenticated. If you wondered why the FBI doesn’t list Osama bin Laden as a suspect in 9/11, I think you have your answer. If they think the bin Laden “admissions” aren’t credibile, I wonder who the FBI is investigating or if they have simply been told to mind their own business.

New chapter in Climategate scandal

The Climategate Scandal blew the lid on the scheme, proving that the whole dastardly sham was a creation of scientists gone bad who had no other goal than to win more research money and to propagate a Leftist political agenda.

New information has surfaced over the last 48 hours that adds more shame and disgrace to those who perpetrated this grand lie on an unsuspecting public.

In 2007 the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (the IPCC) issued a report that included a dire warning concerning the glaciers in the Himalayan Mountains. The report stated that unless drastic changes were made globally to industry and commerce, economic systems, and the common lifestyles of advanced nations, the Himalayan glaciers would be gone completely by 2035.

Hart queried Meir on-air: “You are saying that if ever Israel was in danger of being defeated on the battlefield, it would be prepared to take the region and even the whole world down with it?”

Meir’s prompt response: “Yes, that’s exactly what I’m saying.”

Pak tunnels near border worry government

According to Indian officials, Pakistan in the past has used Sargodha to store M-11 missiles which had been delivered unassembled to it by China. However, the pace at which these tunnels are coming up suggests that, as the official put it, Pakistan is up to something. Sargodha is also the place which the Chinese are said to regularly visit to train the Pakistanis in handling weapons and missiles.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Note that this is not sourced, as to from whom this intel has allegedly come.

But a memo to the the adults in the halls of power in New Delhi and Islamabad: with all the challenges both countries are facing, the last thing either country needs now is a shooting war.

Schwarzenegger proposes Mexican jails take US inmates

California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has suggested the state could reduce prison spending by housing undocumented inmates in Mexican jails.

Mr Schwarzenegger said the costs of building and running the prisons in Mexico would be half of California's.

Earlier this month, the California governor declared a fiscal emergency, announcing that severe cuts would be needed to stem a $19.9bn (£12.3bn) deficit.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Has California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger gone barking mad?!?

With a 19 billion dollar deficit, where the sam hill is this money supposed to come from?!?

The problem is not just California, in terms of warehousing illegal aliens: it's nationwide, because there is absolutely no enthusiasm in Washington to really control the country's highly porous borders.

This is not helped by the reality that large corporations love the cheap labor illegal aliens provide.

This is also not helped by successions of Mexican governments unable to provide a decent living or economy for its own people, thereby covertly encouraging illegal immigration.

Other countries manage to enforce and protect their borders; but here in the US there is no political will to resolve this issue, so the situation will just continue to get worse nationally.

The New Climategate Scandal

No, it's not the purloined emails I'm talking about here, the ones that showed just how far activists scientists will go in pursuit of achieving political ends. No, the new "climategate" scandal involves the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the institution that won the Nobel Peace Prize with Vice President Al Gore.

Seems the IPCC violated its own rules against publishing non-peer reviewed literature. In their monumental opus in 2007 that said the Himalayan glaciers would disappear by 2035, they apparently relied upon speculation by a climate change scientist that this could happen. Only he hadn't said 2035, he said 2350. And there was absolutely no science behind this conjecture whatsoever -- it was pure speculation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is time for the Nobel Committee (And the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences) to demand the return of those awards.

The longer the Academy waits, the less credibility the Oscars will have in the eyes of the movie-going public.

CLIMATEGATE - Now the IPCC sexed up the Amazonian danger, too

Now yet another scare claim in the IPCC’s 2007 report collapses on closer inspection.

CLIMATEGATE - Australian IPCC Author Prof Andy “Hide the Funding” Pitman cries “No Fair”

So we now have Andy “Hide the Funding” Pitman failing to be able to discuss facts and instead resorting to describing his own absurd version of reality in an ABC interview. He claims scientists for the IPCC receive no funding. Did $63,400 in funding somehow slip your mind Andy during the publicly broadcast interview with the ABC?

Read Andrew Bolt’s article and see Andy fail to mention his funding whilst accusing skeptics of being unemployed and "so well funded". Excuse me Andy, I think your slip is showing.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As the cult of the Earth-Centered Universe began to crumble in the face of Galileo's telescopic observations, all those scientists and clergy who had prospered by "studying" epicycles panicked. Rather than admit they had been wrong all those years, they accused the users of telescopes with consorting with the devil, and ultimately tortured Galileo into a public recantation of his studies.

Today we see the same thing happening again. The Global Warming Cult, rather than admit they were wrong (or used) is screaming that the "heretics" are consorting with Exxon. No doubt, some wish that the skeptics could be waterboarded until they public recanted.

But people like Andy Pitman only prove that the Global Warming cult really was a cult, still living with the mindset of the year 1600, the year Giordano Bruno was burned at the stake for suggesting that the stars were the same thing as the sun, only much further away and probably with other planets around them.

But this is the 21st century. And the old ways no longer apply.

Eppur Si Muove, your eminence!

U.N. Climate Chief Enriches Himself with Bogus Scientific Report

The Sunday Times (U.K.) reports that the head of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), Rajendra Pachauri, won millions of dollars in grants to research a scientific claim about glaciers in the Himalayas that was known to be bogus.

Glaciologists consider the claim in question, that the glaciers in the Himalayas would be gone by 2035, to be erroneous. But it appears that knowledge did not stop the chairman of the IPCC from applying for and receiving grants to study its impacts anyway.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is the former railroad engineer who now refuses to resign.

Pachauri's degrees are in economics and engineering. He has no formal training in climate sciences, yet secured grants to study a phenomenon known in advance to be bogus.

This is on the same moral level as asking for a few million to study the Cottingly Fairies

And still Pachauri refuses to resign. If the UN fails to fire him, the UN's credibility, already in tatters over Climategate, will be gone.

Success in Afghanistan linked to Pak willingness to act: US

The US' success in Afghanistan is directly linked to Pakistan's willingness to co-operate and act against al-Qaida, Taliban and other extremist organisation, as Af-Pak region remains the epicentre of violent extremism, a top Obama Administration official has said.

"It was beyond question that the speed with which we were able to achieve our goals in Afghanistan has a link to the willingness of Pakistan to take on the fact that safe havens exist in the border region," said General (rtd) James Jones, National Security Advisor.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently, Security Advisor Jones didn't get the memo; a high-ranking officer in the Pakistani military has stated emphatically that they are not going to do another major military incursion in the border areas for at least one year.

As reported on 21 January, 2010 in


"Pakistan's chief military spokesman, Maj. Athar Abbas, said that any new offensive against the Taliban would have to wait until next year."

So, now what? Ramp up the drone attacks into major Pakistani cities, like Quetta?!?

Oh, that's going to win the hearts and minds of the Pakistani people!!

Egypt's Internet Crackdown

In the case of Egypt, the familiar dictum that all that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing is far from sufficient.Evil triumphs in Cairo because supposedly good men in the West openly and unapologetically fund and arm it. America has supplied Egypt with approximately $50 billion of aid (primarily military) since Hosni Mubarak came to power three decades ago. Stability was supposedly bought at the price of liberty—a fool's bargain. Instead, Egypt remains impoverished, illiterate, autocratic, corrupt, and repressive, not exactly the conditions for lasting stability or peace.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Ah, yes, good old Hosni Mubarak; a consummate thug, but nonetheless our thug.

This is another grand example of the US government being pathologically incapable of learning the lessons of history.

When peaceful revolution is impossible, violent revolution is inevitable.

There will be a breaking point for the Egyptian people, and my guess is, that breaking point will not be too long in coming, no matter how repressive the current Egyptian government may be.

Haiti PM begs for help as looting grips devastated Port-au-Prince

Haiti's premier begged foreign donors Monday to back the reconstruction of his quake-hit country as fresh looting and chaotic food hand-outs underscored the grim conditions facing survivors.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If true, this demonstrates that despite all the photo ops of US troops handing out supplies and food, that very little is actually getting to the people who need it most desperately.

If in fact there is looting, it becomes yet another "excuse" for the US military to forcibly occupy the island and create a total martial law environment.

That will make it easier to grant sweetheart deals to companies salivating for the rights to exploit Haiti's mineral and oil wealth.

And ultimately, the people of Haiti will be no better off than they were before the quake struck.
