A Manifesto for X Street

Following the example of the currently fashionable pro-Israel group J Street, which chose a Washington DC letter street that does not actually exist for the name of its lobby, I would like to propose a new lobby that would also be based on a non-address, X Street. Membership in X Street will be open to all American citizens of every race, national origin, and religious belief. It will be guided by a unifying principle, that preservation of the liberties defined in the constitution and support of the national interest of the United States should be the sole objectives of any and all foreign policy. It would be the modern embodiment of George Washington’s warning to steer clear of foreign involvements and to be a friend to all.

Report: US Warned China That Israel Could Attack Iran

An American warning that Israel could bomb Iran is what caused China to reconsider its stance over the Iranian nuclear program and may have paved the way for new sanctions against the Islamic republic, the Washington Post reported Thursday.

The Americans have been trying for some time to get China to join the camp of countries supporting tougher sanctions against Iran. According to the report, two weeks before US President Barack Obama visited China a week and a half ago, two senior White House officials – Dennis Ross and Jeffrey Bader – traveled to Beijing on a “special mission” to try to persuade China to pressure Iran to give up its alleged nuclear weapons program.

Climate czar rejects doctored data claims

Obama administration climate czar Carol Browner on Wednesday rejected claims that e-mails stolen from a British university show that climate scientists trumped up global-warming numbers, saying she considers the science settled.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is why Czars have gone out of fashion.

Folks, I have heard Climategate described as the greatest science scandal of all time. It is that and much more. It is also the greatest political scandal of all time because the agenda was not scientific but political; to trick the entire world into accepting the yoke of global government and global taxation.

In other words Climategate (and Swine-11 and the financial crash) were created to enslave the entire human race. It is a monstrous conspiracy that involved the US Government, corrupted scientists, and the corporate media, all led by the United Nations' IPCC.

As such, I disagree with those who say that Climategate is a scan, or a fraud, or even treason. It is so very much more than that. Climategate is a crime against the entire planet. It is a crime against humanity. It is the greatest crime in history and its conspirators deserve the greatest punishment in history.

In standing up to be counted with the global warming fraudsters, Obama's Climate Czar, who owes her position and paycheck to the manufactured fraud of human-caused global warming, has proven to America that this government is an enemy of the people, willing to sell us all into global bondage for the sake of power and thirty pieces of silver.

Carol Browner is not an elected official. She is a proven liar because she supports a proven hoax that evinces a design to reduce all human under an absolute global despotism and taxation from which there will be no recourse and no escape. I do not recognize her authority over me, and certainly have no respect for her absence of scientific awareness in this matter.

Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. -- The Declaration of Independence

Nov 26 16:20

Oh, My! Climategate is Spreading

An agency of the New Zealand government has been cooking the books to create a warming trend where none exists, according to a joint research project by global warming skeptics at the Climate Conversation Group and the New Zealand Climate Science Coalition. The chief cook? Dr. Jim Salinger, considered one of the country's top scientists, who began the graph in the 1980s when he was at the Climatic Research Unit at the University of East Anglia in the UK. CRU, of course, has become ground zero of Climategate at Dr. Salinger has maintained close relations with CRU since, as seen in the Climategate emails.

What do the uncooked books show? Rather than warming over the last hundred years, New Zealand's temperature has been steady.

Climategate: this is our Berlin Wall moment!

I’ve just had a great, very sympathetic interview about Climategate on LBC radio (London’s main commercial news and talk station) with Petrie Hosken. She told me she has been simply inundated with callers, all of them utterly unconvinced that human influence has made any significant on so-called “Global Warming”. She was desperate to get a few balancing calls from people who do believe in AGW but just couldn’t find any.

Can you imagine this happening a year ago? Or even a month ago? Until Climategate, we “Sceptics” were considered freaks – almost as bad as Holocaust deniers – beyond the pale of reasonable balanced discussion. Suddenly we’re the norm. Climategate has finally given us the chance to express openly what many of us secretly felt all along:

Climategate: MSM Writers Try to Ignore Scandal in Global Warming Stories But Readers Bring Them Back to Reality

An hilariously bizarre situation is happening in the wake of the growing Climategate scandal. Many of the mainstream media stories about global warming are simply pretending it doesn't exist. Perhaps they feel that by ignoring Climategate entirely that it will just go away. Unfortunately for them, the readers of these global warming stories keep bringing up the inconvenient truth of Climategate by mentioning the scandal in the comments section over and over and over again.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Two days ago, after the world found out about the CRU emails, the local paper the Honolulu Star Bulletin, ran a story "Mauna Loa Observatory's carbon dioxide readings near worst-case scenario " It was also the cover story for the paper edition, with full-color photo, front page, above the fold. This obvious attempt to re-assert the Global Warming Agenda inspired me to write them the following letter to the Editor.

I told you; the global warming cultists are going to ramp up the hysterical fear-mongering between now and Copenhagen.

Here is the email I sent to Star Bulletin

Shame on Star-Bulletin for this obvious pandering to private interests intent on making millions of dollars “Enronizing” the Cap and Credit Carbon tax system. And I do not choose that word casually. Enron’s Ken Lay aided Al Gore in setting up the structure for Al’s company (which has invested $150 million in “selling” global warming), planning to do to the world with Carbon Dioxide what Enron did to California with electricity!

Setting aside the breaking story of the whistleblower inside the Hadley Climate Research Unit that leaked emails and documents confirming that the global warming “industry” deliberately falsified data to create a climate of fear and panic for political purposes, I would like to remind you that the measurement station at the Mauna Loa Observatory sits on top of a volcano which has been in active eruption for close to 20 years. Carbon Dioxide is emitted by volcanoes. Indeed it is the second most abundant gas in volcanic venting after water vapor (which is also a greenhouse gas).

I am insulted that you treat your readers as uneducated simpletons with little grounding in the sciences. No wonder the corporate media is in decline.

Needless to say, it has not been published.

President Barack Obama is about to stride off to Copenhagen, where he'll sign away any hope that America can return to sustained prosperity.

The president promises next month's international palaver on climate change will be marked by aggressive action to combat global warming and a firm commitment by the United States to shoulder its share of the responsibility.

Translation: Obama will pledge the United States to curbing its appetite for energy, and thus its economic growth, will make reducing emissions a higher priority than creating new jobs and will agree to transfer $1.6 trillion of our wealth to China, India and the other booming developing economies.

And it may be based on doctored numbers.

CRU's Source Code: Climategate Uncovered

Skimming through the often spaghetti-like code, the number of programs which subject the data to a mixed-bag of transformative and filtering routines is simply staggering. Granted, many of these "alterations" run from benign smoothing algorithms (e.g., omitting rogue outliers) to moderate infilling mechanisms (e.g., estimating missing station data from that of those closely surrounding). But many others fall into the precarious range between highly questionable (removing MXD data which demonstrate poor correlations with local temperature) to downright fraudulent (replacing MXD data entirely with measured data to reverse a disorderly trend-line).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

CRU relied on 8 papers linking tree ring growth to temperatures in historical times. However, these papers were full of errors despite being approved by the (now known to be compromised) peer-review process.

These papers and indeed the entire CRU methodology was to express tree ring thickness solely in terms of temperature while ignoring or minimizing the effects of variations in water availability, nutrients, disease patterns, and the fact that increased CO2 would trigger more robust plant growth even though the actual temperature might remain constant or even decline.

It is clear that the tip-top scientists implicated in the burgeoning Climategate scandal have no honor, but it is also becoming apparent that they have no sense of shame either.

A trainee spy for Israel's secret service agency Mossad was arrested by Tel Aviv police while taking part in a training operation, media reports say.
The young trainee was spotted by a female passer-by as he planted a fake bomb under a vehicle in the city.
He was only able to persuade police he was a spy after being taken in by an officer for questioning on Monday.

President George W. Bush and seven of his administration's top officials, including Vice President Dick Cheney, National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice, and Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, made at least 935 false statements in the two years following September 11, 2001, about the national security threat posed by Saddam Hussein's Iraq.

Oh-oh! Politicians share personality traits with serial killers: Study

Kouri, who's a vice president of the National Assn. of Chiefs of Police, has assembled traits such as superficial charm, an exaggerated sense of self-worth, glibness, lying, lack of remorse and manipulation of others.

These traits, Kouri points out in his analysis, are common to psychopathic serial killers.

But -- and here's the part that may spark some controversy and defensive discussion -- these traits are also common to American politicians. (Maybe you already suspected.)

Obey and several other senior Democrats have proposed a graduated surtax, beginning in 2011, to pay for the war. Their bill would impose a 1% surtax on people earning less than $150,000. The tax hike would be higher for people earning between $150,000 and $250,000 a year, and double that for people with higher incomes. The bill does not give exact figures for what upper surtax rates would be, but says that they would be high enough to cover the previous year's war costs.

It would exempt veterans of combat since Sept. 11, 2001, their families, and the relatives of those killed in action. The president could delay implementation of the tax for a year if he concluded that the economy was too weak.

The Cost of War

The numbers don’t lie. It is a fantasy to believe that Washington will somehow obtain a simulacrum of victory in Afghanistan and Iraq that will benefit America and its people. Apart from any other moral or practical considerations, the United States simply cannot afford to continue feeding an insatiable war machine. Extending the conflict to Iran will likely break the bank. Someone should speak the truth to President Obama, who is pledging to "finish the job" in Afghanistan, explaining that the best way to finish is to end the sorry debacle. The President should make the politically difficult but necessary decision to stop the bleeding and bring our soldiers home.

Treemometers: Yet another Global Warming fraud exposed

At least eight papers purporting to reconstruct the historical temperature record times may need to be revisited, with significant implications for contemporary climate studies, the basis of the IPCC's assessments. A number of these involve senior climatologists at the British climate research centre CRU at the University East Anglia. In every case, peer review failed to pick up the errors.

At issue is the use of tree rings as a temperature proxy, or dendrochronology. Using statistical techniques, researchers take the ring data to create a "reconstruction" of historical temperature anomalies. But trees are a highly controversial indicator of temperature, since the rings principally record Co2, and also record humidity, rainfall, nutrient intake and other local factors.

UK diplomat questions post of Jews on Iraq panel

A British diplomat has criticized the appointment of two leading Jewish academics to the UK's Iraq Inquiry panel, stating it may upset the balance of the inquiry.

Sir Oliver Miles, a former British ambassador to Libya, told The Independent newspaper this week that the appointment of Sir Martin Gilbert, the renowned Holocaust historian and Winston Churchill biographer, and Sir Lawrence Freedman, professor of war studies and vice-principal of King's College London, would be seen as "ammunition" that could be used to call the inquiry a "whitewash."

More generally, we have been given the materials with which to obtain an insight into how all modern science works when vast amounts of public funding is at stake and when the vested interests associated with various “progressive” causes require a particular scientific result.

Police seize DJs' laptops; want "to shut down every illegal party in SF"

One of the undercover officers approached her and asked if she had a laptop. She said she did. "I was a little confused at this point because I didn't know what my laptop had to do with anything. I was playing CDs." She said she pulled her computer out from underneath a table and unzipped it from a case. The officer then "grabbed it from me."

The undercover police officer — later identified by witnesses and the evidence receipt as Larry Bertrand — instructed Miller to follow him down to the street to get a property receipt for her laptop.

At this point there were uniformed officers on the scene as well. Miller started to cry. "I begged him. I said, 'This is my livelihood. You're talking my laptop. This is my livelihood. I hope you realize that.' He said, 'This is how you're going to learn then, I guess.'"

Miller said Bertrand (who did not return Guardian calls for comment) then told her he was "going to take it upon himself to shut down every illegal party in San Francisco."

She said he then opened the trunk of his car, revealing several other laptops. A person at the party pointed out that one of the laptops belonged to a friend of his, and asked if he could get the property receipt for the laptop. Miller said Bertrand turned to the inquiring person and said, "You will never see this laptop again."

Obama joins Bush, Congress in War Crimes for false imprisonment, torture at Bagram Prison

The US invaded Afghanistan illegally; the country did not attack the US and their government volunteered to cooperate with extradition of any criminal suspects upon evidence of probable cause. The US refused to provide evidence, did not receive requisite UN Security Council authorization for military action required by US and international law, and illegally invaded in a War of Aggression.

Please pause to verify the fact that the US illegally invaded Afghanistan. When an invasion is illegal, the people fighting US troops are defending their nation against a hostile force. If China invaded the US on such pretext, Americans who did not defend our nation would be called cowards and traitors to the invading horde.

New Study Shows Ten States Face Fiscal Crisis

California is worst off, but hardly alone. Others include Arizona, Florida, Illinois, Michigan, Nevada, New Jersey, Oregon, Rhode Island and Wisconsin.

The 10 worst off states are examined, but close behind are Colorado, Georgia, Kentucky, New York and Hawaii. Only two, Montana and North Dakota, are fiscally solvent and expect to meet their 2010 budgets, the latter because it alone has what the others don't - its own bank able to create credit for state businesses and residents at an affordable cost. As a result, with the lowest unemployment rate in the country at 4%, it's created jobs at a time they're vanishing in the other 49 and the District of Columbia.

North Dakota has really played it smart in terms of having its own state bank for the creation of credit; this has obviously made a tremendous difference for its economy.

Meeting Japan's emissions-reduction target may cost households between $1,465 (£878) and $8,600 a year, according to a government-appointed task force.

The group warned that achieving the nation's stated target of cutting CO2 emissions by 25 per cent on 1990 levels by 2020 would lead to a significant fall in disposable income for households, based on the assumption that the goal would be achieved only through domestic efforts – without the purchase of carbon offsets from overseas – and that the nation's economy expands 1.3 per cent annually.

In turn, household incomes would shrink along with consumer consumption and savings, real wages would fall, the supply of labor would shrink, and economic investmen

The Vioxx scandal widened this week as new research published in the Archives of Internal Medicine reveals that Vioxx maker Merck held data for three years that proved Vioxx caused an alarming increase in the risk of heart attacks and strokes.

Pakistan has complained to the United States that the strategy in Afghanistan is allowing militants to cross the border more easily, hampering its army’s campaign against Islamists.

After his election last November and until the $787-billion American Recovery and Reinvestment Act was passed in February, President Barack Obama repeatedly insisted that it was urgent for Congress to enact his economic “recovery” bill immediately. Yet, by the end of fiscal 2009 fully 78 percent of the federal spending authorized by that bill had not yet taken place, according to the Government Accountability Office.

Yemen conflict inflaming Saudi-Iranian rivalry

in recent weeks, the conflict in northern Yemen has sharply heightened the hostility between Saudi Arabia and Iran — and that could raise tensions in the other conflicts between the two nations.

Both countries sent warships off Yemen, putting their navies in close proximity. Officials and powerful clerics in both Iran and Saudi Arabia have stepped up their rhetoric to more feverish levels. Iran's parliament speaker accused Saudi Arabia of crimes against the rebels. Saudi Arabia's most senior cleric last week railed against Iran, saying it and the rebels are in a "collaboration of sin and aggression."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yemen's government, drowning in corruption and almost collapsing to the point of "failed nation status", is supported by the US.

House Democrats Eye War Tax

Citing increasing concerns about the rising cost of the Afghan War, a group of House Democrats led by Appropriations Committee Chairman David Obey (D-WI) have proposed a new tax on personal income.

The tax is being pressed forward as part of the “Share the Sacrifice Act of 2010,” which Rep. Obey and others say will ensure that all Americans share the onerous burden of continuing the seemingly endless conflict in Afghanistan.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to every single congressional representative: We the People did not, and do not, support this war at all.

We understand that the reasons for the starting of this war had and have absolutely nothing to do with US national security.

This war was profit driven, and was supposed to create two outcomes, which were:

1. The installation of pipelines to control Eurasian oil. So far, eight years on, so bad: the country is still too volatile for this to happen.

2. Control of the drug trade, from which so many profit so handsomely. (Thinking Americans understand that the Taliban previously all but eradicated the opium trade.

Since the US/ NATO invasion and occupation of Afghanistan, cheap drugs are flooding the market place. An accident? Hardly!!)

One in every four combat soldiers quit the Afghan National Army (ANA) during the year ending in September, published data by the U.S. Defense Department and the Inspector General for Reconstruction in Afghanistan reveals.

That high rate of turnover in the ANA, driven by extremely high rates of desertion, spells trouble for the strategy that President Barack Obama has reportedly decided on, which is said to include the dispatch of thousands of additional U.S. military trainers in order to rapidly increase the size of the ANA.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That doesn't just spell "trouble" for Obama's strategy: it spells complete, catastrophic, disaster.

Most global banks are still unsafe, warns S&P

Standard & Poor's has given warning that nearly all of the world's big banks lack sufficient capital to cover trading and investment exposure, risking further downgrades over the next 18 months unless they move swiftly to beef up their defences.

Every single bank in Japan, the US, Germany, Spain, and Italy included in S&P's list of 45 global lenders fails the 8pc safety level under the agency's risk-adjusted capital (RAC) ratio. Most fall woefully short.

The most vulnerable are Mizuho Financial (2.0), Citigroup (2.1), UBS (2.2), Sumitomo Mitsui (3.5), Mitsubishi (4.9), Allied Irish (5.0), DZ Deutsche Zentral (5.3), Danske Bank (5.4), BBVA (5.4), Bank of Ireland (6.2), Bank of America (5.8), Deutsche Bank (6.1), Caja de Ahorros Barcelona (6.2), and UniCredit (6.3).

Former Afghan Detainees Speak Out About U.S. "Acts Of Torture"

Raqeeb, whose brother Noor was also taken but released after a much shorter period, is telling his story just as President Obama is reportedly preparing to announce an escalation of the war in Afghanistan, which polls show a majority of Americans believe is not worth fighting.

Obama is expected to announce his decision next week. Due to a scheduling conflict, he bumped his decision up on the calendar -- the week after next, he is flying to Oslo to accept the Nobel Peace Price.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How much more "Brave New World" can you get?

Obama will talk about the escalation of the war in Afghanistan on Tuesday, then trot off to Oslo to accept his Nobel "Peace Prize" mid December!

Can anyone else smell the deep, fetid stink of irony here?!?

Bail Offer for Roman Polanski Is Approved

The Swiss Criminal Court said it still considered Mr. Polanski a high flight risk, but that the new bail offer was significant enough to offset those concerns.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In other words, the child molester just bought his way out of jail. All he needs to do is flee to someplace without a binding extradition treaty.

Robert Baer: What We're Up Against In Afghanistan Is A "War Of National Resistance"

"The people that want their country liberated from the West have nothing to do with Al Qaeda," Baer says. "They simply want us gone because we're foreigners, and they're rallying behind the Taliban because the Taliban are experienced, effective fighters."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The people of Afghanistan do not "hate us because we are free"; they hate us because we are an occupying military force, and they want us gone.

Israel Readying New Cutting-Edge Arms To Meet Iran Challenge

With cutting-edge anti-missile systems and two new submarines that can carry nuclear weapons, Israel is readying a new generation of armaments designed to defend itself against distant Iran as well as Tehran's proxy armies on its borders.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

For the 19 zillionth time:

1. Iran, as a signatory to the NNPT, is perfectly within its rights to develop nuclear energy for power plants.

2. All inspections by the IAEA have indicated, categorically, that there are no missing nuclear materials in Iran, nor is the nuclear material being enriched to the level necessary for a weapon; only that which is necessary for a power station.

3. Iran has not started a war in over 200 years.

4. Israel, which has nuclear weapons (as stated by Olmert to the German media, and confirmed by former US President Jimmy Carter), refuses to sign the NNPT, or have their nuclear sites inspected by the IAEA.

5. The Symington Amendment states very clearly that any country developing or owning nuclear bombs cannot receive any US aid, financial or military.

6.The US has been in violation of that Amendment for years. Israel has nuclear weapons, but maintains a public posture of "nuclear ambiguity" which the US coyly accepts in order to keep forking over money and military aid.

Any questions?!?!?!?
