TSA Blows Smoke (re: Sensitive Screening Document)

It may be that TSA has relocated the Screening solicitation to some other FBO location with a "secure version" of the Screening SOP. Even so, the insecure version remains available on the FBO site.

Muscle-Growth Gene Therapy Raises Athletes' Hopes of Becoming Supermen

Look at the pictures at what blocking myostatin does and be amazed! maybe it can not create "Supermen" but it is dang CLOSE!

Scientists have demonstrated a way to selectively block myostatin production

Myostatin is a critical gene in the human body that plays a regulatory role in many processes, including the deposition of fatty tissue. It also blocks muscle growth. Animals or humans born without the gene show freakish muscular growth and the ability to perform athletic feats that take their peers years of dedication and training.

Israeli Settlers Threaten To Make Palestinians 'Pay The Price' Over West Bank

Radical Israeli settlers are threatening to unleash a campaign of violence against their Palestinian neighbours after a government order suspended construction of Jewish homes in the occupied West Bank.

Mounting discontent over the building ban, announced at the end of November, has already manifested itself in a series of scuffles between egg-throwing settlers and Israeli police officers.
But this week hardline Jewish activists have signalled a change of tactic by circulating calls for Palestinian civilians to pay the price for the settlement freeze.

Workers discover loose Bay Bridge joint 'by chance'

Caltrans says inspectors doing their nightly check of the eyebar repair noticed the welds coming loose. Three lanes of the upper deck had to be closed from 4 a.m. to 6 a.m. and traffic was a nightmare.

"It's age really," said Caltrans spokesman Bart Ney. "There are six joints that we're looking at replacing next month and this was one of them."

The bridge and its broken joint are 73-years-old. A joint failure would not have caused the whole bridge to fail, but could have damaged cars and caused accidents.

How 9/11 Was Done-One Plausible Explanation

How 9/11 Was Done-One Plausible Explanation

9/11 was a master plot, concocted by a handfull of Israelis and dual passport Americans and carried out by the resources of the Mossad.

Larry Silverstein leases a nearly worthless dinosaur WTC building complex (worthless due to the asbestos the buildings were stuffed with and needed to be cleaned up, the cost of which may have rivaled the value of the buildings themselves) weeks before 9/11, makes sure it is over insured against terrorist acts and hires an Israeli security firm. From that moment on the coast is clear to let a team of demolition experts from the Israeli army led by Peer Segalovitz into the WTC buildings. These charges plus detonators had been prepared at the premises of the Urban Moving Systems company, a Mossad front.

Obama's War Speech: The Questions It Raises & The Answer That Must Be Given

On Tuesday, December 1, at the U.S. Military Academy in West Point, President Barack Obama announced that he would send 30,000 additional troops to Afghanistan. He also called for 10,000 more NATO troops, which pushes the total U.S.-led forces to nearly 150,000, and he announced plans to step up the war on a number of fronts including (without being specific) in Pakistan. Obama has now tripled the number of U.S. forces in Afghanistan since he took office.

Madrid Bombings - inside job?

During the trial, explosives experts explained that they had searched all the objects left in the train cars four times and confirmed that it was impossible that the found bomb had been among them [8]. Its origin is even more doubtful because the abandoned objects, among which the bomb was purportedly found, were moved 3 times throughout the day of March 11, not always under the best surveillance [9], and ended up at the Vallecas police station, contrary to what the judge had ordered. If one adds to this the conflicting testimony about when it was discovered [10], the fact that the bomb was not mentioned in the inventories of abandoned objects [11], and the fact that there are no photos of the bomb before the time that it was dismantled, the inconsistency of such evidence becomes clear.

Official US policy: Nuke Iran because "nuclear program" might "wipe Israel off map"

The policy describing US military use of nuclear weapons is the 2005 Doctrine for Joint Nuclear Operations. Its preface states:

"The guidance in this publication is authoritative; as such, this doctrine will be followed except when, in the judgment of the commander, exceptional circumstances dictate otherwise. If conflicts arise between the contents of this publication and the contents of Service publications, this publication will take precedence unless the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, normally in coordination with the other members of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, has provided more current and specific guidance."

Police U-turn on photographers and anti-terror laws

Police forces across the country have been warned to stop using anti-terror laws to question and search innocent photographers after The Independent forced senior officers to admit that the controversial legislation is being widely misused.

The strongly worded warning was circulated by the Association of Chief Police Officers (Acpo) last night. In an email sent to the chief constables of England and Wales's 43 police forces, officers were advised that Section 44 powers should not be used unnecessarily against photographers. The message says: "Officers and community support officers are reminded that we should not be stopping and searching people for taking photos. Unnecessarily restricting photography, whether from the casual tourist or professional, is unacceptable."

Earlier this week about 25 anti-occupation, anti Israeli-apartheid activists, organized by Adalah-NY, presented a noisy surprise to the members of the Israeli Business Leaders Delegation having breakfast at a reception for them at the Leviev jewelry store on Madison Avenue in N.Y.C. Astonished, disturbed faces appeared at the window above the Leviev store. The demonstrators chanted and sang parodies of holiday songs that were critical of Israel’s policies toward the Palestinian people in general, and of Lev Leviev in particular. They used their voices, a guitar, a banjo, and a pot being banged with a spoon, while others handed out leaflets.

Mr. Pachauri and his allies are fond of pointing out that climate change science is bigger than East Anglia's Climatic Research Unit (CRU), and that other institutions' research backs the theory. This is true. But it's also the best argument for opening up to public scrutiny both the raw data and the computer code that lies behind pronouncements of looming climate catastrophe. Citizen-researchers—some of whom are, indeed, skeptics—have been after some of this information for years. CRU's apparent obstruction of freedom-of-information requests, as revealed by the leaks, is only the tip of the iceberg.

Who Wants War?

If anyone still doubted that this administration's foreign policy would bring any kind of change, this week's debate on Afghanistan should remove all doubt. The President's stated justifications for sending more troops to Afghanistan and escalating war amount to little more than recycling all the false reasons we began the conflict. It is so discouraging to see this coming from our new leadership, when the people were hoping for peace. New polls show that 49% of the people favor minding our own business on the world stage, up from 30% in 2002. Perpetual war is not solving anything. Indeed continually seeking out monsters to destroy abroad only threatens our security here at home as international resentment against us builds.

The document is also being interpreted by developing countries as setting unequal limits on per capita carbon emissions for developed and developing countries in 2050; meaning that people in rich countries would be permitted to emit nearly twice as much under the proposals.

"The Obama administration's role in what appears to be a secret plot to strong-arm through an agreement forcing poor countries to bear much of the cost of reducing emissions is despicable. President Obama cannot lead the world while wheeling and dealing from the back-room. These are supposed to be negotiations about how to solve a problem, not about how to appease the United States government.

"The 'Danish text' is grossly unfair and is a non-starter. The United States, which has already filled the atmosphere with far more than its fair share of greenhouse gas emissions, must reject this text and start listening to the proposals of developing countries."

As Marshall Auerback pointed out on this site yesterday, the government can print as much money as it wants; it's not "revenue constrained". What keeps the Fed from printing its way out of every jam, is the fear of inflation. But, consider this: inflation fears never stopped Fed chair Ben Bernanke from hosing down the entire financial system with $11.4 trillion, did it? Also, the Fed never hesitated to bulk up excess reserves at the banks by $1 trillion so bankers could shove it into high-risk assets and make windfall profits for themselves while the real economy drifted into coma.

In a recent interview with The Washington Post, ElBaradei said an Israeli military strike against Iran would "absolutely be the worst thing that could happen."

CLIMATEGATE - EPA Says Breathing Is Deadly, But Radioactive Drinking Water Is Good For Us

While the EPA declares the gas that we exhale to be a deadly poison, as protesters at Copenhagen decry the suffering of polar bears as their population figures increase to record levels, and as delegates in the Danish capital warn of the dastardly peril of cows farting, a New York Times report confirming that U.S. drinking water contains dangerous levels of arsenic, uranium and other radioactive substances barely gets noticed.

CLIMATEGATE - EPA Misled Public on 9/11 Pollution

In the aftermath of the Sept. 11, 2001, attack on the World Trade Center, the White House instructed the Environmental Protection Agency to give the public misleading information, telling New Yorkers it was safe to breathe when reliable information on air quality was not available.

That finding is included in a report released Friday by the Office of the Inspector General of the EPA. It noted that some of the agency's news releases in the weeks after the attack were softened before being released to the public: Reassuring information was added, while cautionary information was deleted.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is, needless to say, the same EPA now trying to convince you that the CO2 in your cola drinks, beer, that you breath out and plants breath in, is now a deadly pollutant requiring taxation to control.

Socialists at UN demand trillions in 'climate debt'

Ignoring the fallacies behind the “science” of man-made global warming, a new U.N. report on “climate justice” says the U.S. and other countries owe $24 trillion in “climate debt” to the rest of the world. The report, “Climate Justice for a Changing Planet,” argues that the United States is “historically the largest global emitter” of greenhouse gas emissions and therefore has the biggest “debt” to pay.

But another U.N. report puts the figure at $45 trillion.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Let's see, $45 trillion divided by the US population works out to ... about $150,000 for every man, woman, and child.

Or a half million per household.

Accidental Child Porn Download Leads to Jail Time

Matthew White, of Sacramento, California, has found himself in a rather unfortunate situation; he's been accused of downloading child pornography. On the advice of his public defender, White is pleading guilty in hopes of cutting his potential 20-year sentence down to three and a half years. After serving his time, White will have to serve 10 years of probation and register as a sex offender.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, just HOW did the FBI know that this totally random individual had downloaded this particular "Girls Gone Wild" video, and more to the point, how did the FBI know that this particular "Girls Gone Wild" was really child porn?

Just how is it that they knew to knock on his particular door?

Where is the crime? There was no intent to acquire the child porn. The file in question did not reveal its contents ahead of time. The computer user deleted the file. So there was no intent.

In other words, there seems to be no probable cause and no way for the FBI to know about this "crime" unless the FBI itself planted the file at LimeWire.

What is next, emailing child porn to everyone in the USA to generate arrest numbers? I guess real crime in the USA is so non-existent that the FBI has time to spend hunting for online porn abusers. On the other hand, given that the FBI's advice is to notify it when you recieve child porn and let them take your computer, then by the simple expedient of emailing you a child porn image, the FBI gains access to your entire computer WITHOUT A COURT WARRANT!

Not quite the image J. Edgar Hoover worked so hard to craft in Jimmy Stewart's "The FBI Story", is it?

CLIMATEGATE - Head of California's Cap and Trade Offsets Program: Cap and Trade Won't Work for Climate, It's a Scam

However, two EPA lawyers with more than 40 years of cumulative experience - including the guy who has been head of California's cap and trade offset programs for more than 20 years - say that sulfur dioxide was different, and that cap and trade for climate is a scam which only benefits the financial players.

Who needs tanks on the lawn when you have the Environmental Protection Agency? Barack Obama’s use of the EPA to pressurise the Senate to pass his climate change Nuremberg Decrees shows his dictatorial mentality. He wants to override Congress, which is hostile to his climate gobbledegook because it is representative of the American electorate, and sideline the nation’s elected Senators by ruling by decree, courtesy of the EPA. This is a coup d’état.

Temperature monitor next to incinerator
We have previously documented that temperature sensors used to generate the data that supports the claim of human caused global warming have been cited in the outflow of building air conditioners and in one notable instance right next to a trash incinerator. Clearly given that these are all sources of heat, the readings from these temperature sensors cannot be used to assume that we are measuring the temperature of anything other than air-conditioning outflow and the incineration of trash.

Just one in five people given Tamiflu by NHS hotline was actually suffering from swine flu

Millions of pounds of NHS money was wasted and billions wiped off the economy because thousands of people were misdiagnosed with swine flu, figures today have revealed.

Research by the Health Protection Agency (HPA) shows just one in five people diagnosed with swine flu by the national emergency hotline actually had the illness.

During the height of the summer swine flu scare, the rate of correct diagnosis fell to as low as one in 20.

More than 800,000 of the one million packets of £15 Tamiflu were prescribed needlessly and millions of working days were lost by people taking 'swine flu sickies'.

Record industry faces liability over `infringement'

The claims arise from a longstanding practice of the recording industry in Canada, described in the lawsuit as "exploit now, pay later if at all." It involves the use of works that are often included in compilation CDs (ie. the top dance tracks of 2009) or live recordings. The record labels create, press, distribute and sell the CDs, but do not obtain the necessary copyright licences.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So ... the same recording industry that is bankrupting single moms over illegal downloads is screwing the recording artists themselves?

Two wrongs do not make a right, of course. But the recording industry just lost the moral high ground if indeed it ever really had it.

The document is also being interpreted by developing countries as setting unequal limits on per capita carbon emissions for developed and developing countries in 2050; meaning that people in rich countries would be permitted to emit nearly twice as much under the proposals.

The media shills, scientists, bureaucrats and corporate rent-seekers gathered at Copenhagen won't give much thought to what this means to the industrialized world's middle and working class. For many of them the new carbon regime means a gradual decline in living standards. Huge increases in energy costs, taxes and a spate of regulatory mandates will restrict their access to everything from single-family housing and personal mobility to employment in carbon-intensive industries like construction, manufacturing, warehousing and agriculture.

You can get a glimpse of this future in high-unemployment California. Here a burgeoning regulatory regime tied to global warming threatens to turn the state into a total "no go" economic development zone.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Federal Reserve debased our currency. Take a look at your coinage. See any gold or silver there?

The founders of this nation knew that banks left to themselves, would substitute cheap metal tokens for real money. They had seen it happen in England, and they saw the results; massive unemployment and poverty for the people.

So the Founders created a monetary system based on government-issued currency of fixed real value, for the use of the people without interest. And the United States flourished.

Then the bankers wormed their way back into the system, bought the Congress and a President, replaced the government issued public currency with currency borrowed from their banks at interest... and debased the gold and silver coinage.

By that last act, every member of the Federal Reserve system (and their enablers in Congress and the Treasury) is in violation of Section 19 of the coinage act of 1792.
