Mystery of Tony Blair's money solved

Another novel fact unearthed by an anonymous online researcher was that Windrush registered a domain name for the Low Carbon Capital Fund.

Is Blair trying to cash in on climate change?: Ex-PM arrives at summit to urge greenhouse gas deal

But his appearance will raise suspicions that he is planning to cash in on global warming.

It comes just weeks after he registered the internet name 'Low Carbon Capital Fund' - thought to be a way of making money out of the demand for green technology.

SkyGrabber: the $26 software used by insurgents to hack into US drones

The only surprise is that the US army is surprised – given that it has known since the 1990s that the "downlink" (from the satellite) of the drone video was unencrypted. The internet may have been invented in the US, but its knowledge has spread far and wide — and insurgents have used websites and computer networks to organise themselves for years.

Headley visa mystery deepens

The Centre today tied itself in knots over the alleged disappearance of the visa documents of terror suspects David Headley and Tahawwur Rana from the Chicago consulate.

The foreign ministry said it would not be “accurate to conclude that these visa applications are missing”. The home ministry took a similar line, hinting the visa papers were not missing but were probably lost in the pile of documents at the consulate.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Britain's Jewish Chronicle newspaper rattled by Redress website

Britain's top Zionist newspaper and Israeli mouthpiece, the Jewish Chronicle, is becoming desperate in the face of growing public support for the Palestinian cause.

In an article published on 17 December, the newspaper expressed concern at the work of our website, Redress Information & Analysis, in highlighting Israeli racism and crimes against humanity.

The article, written by the Jewish Chronicle's chief political editor, Martin Bright, cited a shadowy organization known as the "Community Security Trust", as being particularly worried by the fact that Redress's message was now part of mainstream public opinion.

Lord Monckton reports on Pachauri’s eye opening Copenhagen presentation

Pachauri was just a couple of seats away, so I gave him a letter from me and Senator Fielding of Australia, pointing out that the headline graph in the IPCC’s 2007 report, purporting to show that the rate of warming over the past 150 years had itself accelerated, was fraudulent.

Would he use the bogus graph in his lecture? I had seen him do so when he received an honorary doctorate from the University of New South Wales. I watched and waited.

Sure enough, he used the bogus graph. I decided to wait until he had finished, and ask a question then.

CLIMATEGATE - Copenhagen: A climate of manipulation

Some naive folk, who probably still don’t understand that governments do not, in fact, make money of their own but merely take what has been earned by others and redistribute it to causes they think will win them the most votes, may believe that the wealth redistribution will actually lower the temperature of the planet.

There is no evidence, scientific or otherwise, that this will happen. The only certainty is that billions will be ripped off by bankers and other middle men before the remainder arrives in the Third World to be looted by a line-up of dictators and tyrants.

Mumbai terror suspect David Headley was ‘rogue US secret agent’

David Headley, 49, who was born in Washington to a Pakistan diplomat father and an American mother, was arrested in Chicago in October. He is accused of reconnoitring targets in India and Europe for Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), the Pakistan-based terror group behind the Mumbai attacks and of having links to al-Qaeda. He has denied the charges.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What makes anyone think he went "rogue" as opposed to following his orders?

'Headley was no low-level operative'

The extensive use of terrorist tradecraft by Pakistani American terror suspect David Headley makes it evident that he "was not merely a low-level cannon fodder-type operative", according to US strategic think tank Stratfor.

Washington's Blog: Copenhagen Climate Treaty scam: trillions in taxes with Enron-like trading rules

*hyperlinks live at source*

My favorite economic analyst, Washington’s Blog, documents what’s developing in disclosure of the provisions within the Copenhagen Framework, including Enron-like skimming of non-wealth producing “trades.” I provide a summary that the global temperature data and revealed e-mails seem to fully falsify the premise for the global taxes.

Iran Tests Advanced Missile As ‘Deterrent’ Against Foreign Attack

Iran on Wednesday flexed its muscles and test-fired its most advanced ballistic missile, capable of hitting the Zionist entity and parts of Europe.

The missile tested, according to Iranian reports, was an upgraded version of the Sajjil 2, a sophisticated ballistic missile that has a range of close to 2,000 kilometers, can carry a nuclear warhead and is powered by a solid-fuel propellant which gives it greater accuracy and range. With solid fuel, the missile can be stored in underground silos, making it more difficult to detect before launch.

Sayyed Khamenei Warns Israel Of Crushing Defeat In Any War On Gaza

One year after Israel’s aggression on Gaza, the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution said should Israel start a new armed conflict against Gazans, it would suffer a much heavier blow. Speaking during a meeting with visiting Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal, Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei pledged Iran’s unwavering support for Palestinians.

“One of the main reasons behind the enmity of the global hegemony toward the Islamic Republic is the Palestinian issue,” said the Supreme Leader on Tuesday. “If Iran had backtracked about the Palestinian issue, much of such hostilities would have ceased to exist; however, regarding this matter we stand fast,” Ayatollah Khamenei added.

Israeli Officials At Risk For Civil Lawsuits In The US?

"Kadima Party leader Tzipi Livni is not the only one, or even one of a select few, who face the near-certainty of arrest should they make the mistake of visiting England.” According to former Israeli Foreign Ministry legal adviser Allan Baker, two of every three ministers in the cabinet would also likely be arrested in a British jail if they did the same.

Britain is one of several west European countries that have passed laws granting it international jurisdiction – that is, the right to try anyone suspected of violating various provisions of international law, no matter where the alleged crimes were committed or the citizenship of the suspect.

CLIMATEGATE - Hill & Knowlton Selected as Official Media Sponsor for United Nations Climate Change Conference

The Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs has selected international communications consultancy Hill & Knowlton as official media sponsor for the UN Conference on Climate Change, COP15, to be held in Copenhagen over two weeks starting December 7( ).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hill & Knowlton is the PR company that staged the fake crying nurse hoax at the United Nations to trick the American people into supporting the first Iraq war.

No doubt they sign the paychecks of many of the "warmistas" harassing the truth movement and assaulting critics at Copenhagen.

IDF raids Naalin photographer’s home

Family members of a girl who shot a video showing an Israel Defense Forces soldier firing a rubber bullet at a bound Palestinian in the West Bank village of Naalin last year say the army has been harassing them ever since.

The relatives told Ynet that a massive IDF force raided their house on Wednesday night and left behind a lot of damage. The girl’s father and brother were then summoned for investigation. An IDF official claimed, however, that the soldiers arrived to arrest a man suspected of rioting and that the incident had nothing to do with the videotape.

War is Peace

"But it was also clear that an all-round increase in wealth threatened the destruction -- indeed, in some sense was the destruction -- of a hierarchical society... ...For if leisure and security were enjoyed by all alike, the great mass of human beings who are normally stupefied by poverty would become literate and would learn to think for themselves; and when once they had done this, they would sooner or later realize that the privileged minority had no function, and they would sweep it away."

The Lobby Within

Crowley, like all of his bosses, Obama included, knows well that Israel is neither keen on 'direct’ nor indirect negotiations, and is deliberately prejudicing any possible just solution with its continuing colonization of occupied East Jerusalem and the rest of the West Bank. Israel’s rightwing extremist government is not bashful about its true intentions, and the smart and savvy Obama is not ignorant of the prospects of a 'direct’ negotiation between those with the bulldozers, the tanks and big guns (based in Tel Aviv) and those with dismal press releases (based in Ramallah). But it’s not just the rare initiatives of the EU that are being summarily dismissed by the US.

Hawaii H1N1 Resolution Advances Vaccination Exemptions Favoring Americans' Growing Demand for Health Freedoms
Hilo, HI--Department of Health officials in Hawaii were overruled by County of Hawaii directors supporting a resolution favoring First Amendment constitutional rights and vaccination exemptions for everyone demanding them.

The nearly unanimous 7-1 Big Island of Hawaii Council vote sent a strong message to State and Federal policy makers to consider a majority of people who solidly distrust risky vaccines in general, and health officials' claims of safety regarding H1N1 vaccines in particular.

Anti-Iran Sanctions Punish Civilians, Are an Act of War

I rise in strongest opposition to this new round of sanctions on Iran, which is another significant step toward a US war on that country.

This legislation seeks to bar from doing business in the United States any foreign entity that sells refined petroleum to Iran or otherwise enhances Iran’s ability to import refined petroleum such as financing, brokering, underwriting, or providing ships for such. Such sanctions also apply to any entity that provides goods or services that enhance Iran’s ability to maintain or expand its domestic production of refined petroleum. This casts the sanctions net worldwide, with enormous international economic implications.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There are times when, in terms of congressional activities, Ron Paul appears to be the only quiet voice of sanity left in Congress.

He is absolutely right about the profound implications of these sanctions, and what their unintended circumstances might be.

Breaking Point - Top Trends by Gerald Celente

The first decade of the 21st century is going out the way it came in with a bust and a bang.

The Great Recession is not over. There is no recovery. It's a cover up. Expect another wave of terrorism. Possibly of 9/11 magnitude.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As for "...another wave of terrorism", I wouldn't bet against some new "false flag" operation to be launched in the US to refocus public anger about the economy and the state of our Republic elsewhere; to make us afraid that "only the government can help us now", and conjure up the most jingoistic, knee-jerk patriotism possible against whoever the next target of US military aggression will be.

Anti-Israel is the new anti-Semitism'

Anti-Semitism is being used to delegitimize the State of Israel, Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said Wednesday.

Speaking at the Foreign Ministry's third annual Global Forum for Combating Anti-Semitism, Lieberman said "classic anti-Semitism, along with Iranian funding and Islamic anti-Semitism, is being used to incite hatred against Jews, and to delegitimize the State of Israel."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman; every day that goes by and another Palestinian has his olive trees plowed under by settlers or the IDF, and/or thrown out of their home in East Jerusalem, every day that goes by another Palestinian woman or kid gets attacked by Israeli settlers is another day when Israel has delegitimized itself as an alleged "democracy" in the eyes of the world

If you don't like the international anger and attention these actions create, try changing official Israeli behavior toward the Palestinians.

Dec 17 10:28


As many of you know from our recent reports, rather terrible things are happening in Jerusalem. The Israeli government is pursuing a policy of forcing Palestinian families from their homes in East Jerusalem and handing over their properties to Jewish settlers. The guiding idea is to plant colonies of fanatical Jewish settlers in the heart of Palestinian neighborhoods.

Army Again Turns to Depleted Uranium for New Weaponry

For the near future, at least, the U.S. military will keep on using DU. Alternatives based on tungsten haven’t panned out. Now, the Army is upgrading to a new 120mm Advanced Kinetic Energy round, and about the only thing we know for sure is that it will be made of DU. The generation after that … may be an improved version of DU called Stakalloy.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As reported in the following resource:


" * DU is both chemically toxic and radioactive. In laboratory tests it damages human cells, causing DNA mutations and other carcinogenic effects.8
* Reports of increased rates of cancer and birth defects have consistently followed DU usage.
* Representatives from both the Serbian and Iraqi governments have linked its use with health problems amongst civilians.9
* Many veterans remain convinced DU is responsible for health problems they have experienced since combat"

Any questions?!?!?

House OKs $634 Billion Defense Bill, Doesn’t Include Surge

The bill, voted on with almost no debate on the last day before the Congress goes into recess, was ostensibly a bill to fund the Pentagon and America’s assorted wars for the next nine months.

But as with every spending bill Congress passes (with alarming frequency) it was filled to the brim with unrelated spending, spending nearly a million dollars on a sprinkler system in Brooklyn and thousands of other projects totaling billions of dollars.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Real healthcare reform, done correctly, won't bankrupt the US; these wars without end, however, will.

US sees Iran edging closer to nuclear arms knowhow

Behind the U.S. drive for harsh new sanctions on Iran is growing concern that the Iranians are acquiring the technological know-how to build a nuclear weapon. The latest worry is a purported Iranian secret document that lays out a plan for developing a critical component of an atomic bomb.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Remember "Saddam Hussein's weapons of mass destruction", which turned out never to have existed in the first place?!?

Folks, the pathological liars in Washington and Tel Aviv, whose kids will not get killed or maimed in an attack against Iran, are trying to sell the same crap they sold the US public when we were asked to swallow the pack of lies which lead to the war against, and occupation of, Iraq.

Don't let them do it this time.

Israeli Professor - 'We Could Destroy All European Capitals'

An Israeli professor and military historian hinted that Israel could avenge the holocaust by annihilating millions of Germans and other Europeans.

Speaking during an interview which was published in Jerusalem Friday, Professor Martin Van Crevel said Israel had the capability of hitting most European capitals with nuclear weapons.

"We possess several hundred atomic warheads and rockets and can launch them at targets in all directions, perhaps even at Rome. Most European capitals are targets of our air force."


Clearly, all of Europe is considered an enemy of Israel.

Obama told China: I can't stop Israel strike on Iran indefinitely

U.S. President Barack Obama has warned his Chinese counterpart that the United States would not be able to keep Israel from attacking Iranian nuclear installations for much longer, senior officials in Jerusalem told Haaretz.

They said Obama warned President Hu Jintao during the American's visit to Beijing a month ago as part of the U.S. attempt to convince the Chinese to support strict sanctions on Tehran if it does not accept Western proposals for its nuclear program.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The likelihood of China going along with sanctions - particularly if Chinese leadership feels it is being bullied by the US on the issue - is zero to none.

Unfortunately, an Israeli-led strike against Iran looks ever more likely as the days increase between the deal presented by the West in October, and the logical counter-proposals presented by Iran, which keep getting rejected.

President Obama: Federal Government 'Will Go Bankrupt' if Health Care Costs Are Not Reined In

President Obama told ABC News’ Charles Gibson in an interview that if Congress does not pass health care legislation that will bring down costs, the federal government “will go bankrupt.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mr. President, you just signed a 1.1 trillion, with a t, spending bill into law.

You continue to pursue Bush's "wars without end" in Iraq, Afghanistan, now in Yemen, and probably soon into Iran.

Wars bankrupt nations, sir: not healthcare.

If tiny Belgium can figure out how to provide healthcare without breaking the bank, (and health outcomes for Belgian citizens are very good), why can't the US?

US Diplomats Shown Hostility In Pakistani Actions

The visa holdup is the latest tangible sign of the volatility of official U.S.-Pakistani relations. The two nations have an improving military relationship but mistrust and suspicion still shadow many government interactions, including U.S. attempts to help Pakistan.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I presume that the author of this article defines "helping" Pakistan as:

1. Forcing the Pakistani government to wage war against its own people, rather than attempting to bring insurgents around with negotiations.

2. Killing innocent men, women, and kids with the drone attacks, as we did most recently with the bombing attack which killed 17 people.

3. Creating even more instability in this class-stratified society than ever existed before.

If all the above can be construed as "helping" Pakistan, we've done one hell of a job!

Alberta shivers amid record lows

Edmonton has established a record it would probably rather forget.

The Alberta capital recorded the lowest temperature in North America overnight Saturday and set a record as the lowest temperature on a Dec. 13 in the city's history as the current deep freeze established records across the province.

"Edmonton International Airport was the coldest place in Canada," Peter Spyker, a meteorologist with Environment Canada, said Sunday. "It was -46.1 [Celsius] without the wind chill. I believe at one point it got to -58 with the wind chill."


Notice that the previous record of -36 Celsius was set the previous year. It certainly does not appear to be getting warmer.

Israeli Forces Shut Down Jerusalem Culture Event

Bethlehem – Ma’an – Israeli forces arrested several and scuffled with Palestinians while shutting down a cultural festival meant to proclaim attachment to Jerusalem on Thursday.

Organizers, including Prisoners’ Club President Nasser Kaws, were hustled out of the Damascus Gate area of the Old City of Jerusalem and detained by Israeli border police, prompting scuffles at the main entrance into the ancient streets. Also among those arrested was the secretary-general of Jerusalem’s Fatah movement Omar Ash-Shabi.

Export value of Afghan opium plummeting, says UN anti-drug agency

The potential export value of Afghanistan’s opium has dropped 18 per cent this year, the United Nations anti-drug body reported today, but it cautioned that further progress hinges on rooting out corruption in the South Asian nation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Think supply and demand.

If the price of opium is dropping it is because there is so much more of it coming out of Afghanistan that the market is glutted!

When drug interdiction WORKS, supply goes down and the price goes UP!

Chernobyl Exclusion Zone Radioactive Longer Than Expected

Chernobyl, the worst nuclear accident in history, created an inadvertent laboratory to study the impacts of radiation — and more than twenty years later, the site still holds surprises.

Reinhabiting the large dead zone around the accident site may have to wait longer than expected. Radioactive cesium isn’t disappearing from the environment as quickly as predicted, according to new research presented here Monday at the meeting of the American Geophysical Union. Cesium 137’s half-life — the time it takes for half of a given amount of material to decay — is 30 years, but the amount of cesium in soil near Chernobyl isn’t decreasing nearly that fast.

The Israel-based Coalition of Women for Peace has sent a letter to MK Tzipi Livni, who served as Israel’s Foreign Minister during last year’s counter-terrorism offensive in Gaza, siding with those who wish to have her arrested by British authorities for her role in the war.

MK Livni received notice of a warrant for her arrest in Britain this week.

The Coalition of Women sent her a translation of the Goldstone Report on Wednesday, and explained in an attached letter, "We are convinced that if you refer to the report, you will understand why British citizens and organizations have turned to the courts with a request to issue a warrant for your arrest."

Kristol Clear: The Source of America's Wars

For instance, in a recent Washington Post opinion piece, William Kristol described Obama's West Point speech as "encouraging." It was "a good thing," he said, that Obama was finally speaking as "a war president."

But if the comments on the Post website are anything to go by, few ordinary Americans take Kristol's armchair warmongering seriously anymore. After all, as one poster quizzically asked, "A column by William Kristol the neocon that was wrong about everything from 2000-2008?"

Although Kristol, like the rest of the neocons, "erred" about Iraq's WMDs and Saddam's links to Al Qaeda and 9/11, it would be a fatal error indeed to dismiss him as a fool.

Nailing the Iraq Lie

Without Britain's support, it's just inconceivable how Bush would have put together his Coalition of the Willing and gone to war against Iraq. As Ken Macdonald, one of Blair's senior public servants and Britain's former chief public prosecutor, wrote in the Times this week, the British leader used "alarming subterfuge with his partner George W Bush" to take the world to war.

A sham war that has totally destroyed Iraq, unleashing chaos that continue to rock the Arab country and the Middle East from one end to another!

CLIMATEGATE - David Suzuki Rants Epic on Global Warming and Copenhagen

Science is not a “belief system” David Suzuki! You seem to have forgotten that as a scientist. Since you’re asking the prime minister of Canada what he “believes” on a scientific topic you’re in the realm of politics not science! You’re not even talking about the science at all other than one or two sentences in your entire rant that even begin to address the basis for your wild extreme dark visions of the future. Very strange indeed David. I’ve come to expect more from you over the years!

Grinding Down the U.S. Army

Signs of severe strain, of being “wasted,” are often not visible to the American public. Nevertheless, they are ominous and growing. Suicides have hit record highs in the Army. Cases of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and depression, having reached an alarming 300,000 in 2008, according to Invisible Wounds of War, a RAND study, continue to escalate, constituting a mental health crisis for the Army. Traumatic brain injuries from IEDs and other explosive shocks in our war zones, difficult to diagnose and even more difficult to treat, may already exceed 300,000, another health crisis exacerbated by a lack of treatment available to veterans. Divorce rates among active duty troops continue to climb. An epidemic of domestic violence and crime has been linked to returning veterans and to the difficulty of readjusting to “normal” life after months, or years, in combat zones. These are just five of the better documented signs of an Army that’s struggling to cope with wars of unprecedented length and still uncertain outcomes.

Are Americans a Broken People? Why We’ve Stopped Fighting Back Against the Forces of Oppression

A psychologist asks: Have consumerism, suburbanization and a malevolent corporate-government partnership so beaten us down that we no longer have the will to save ourselves?

Can people become so broken that truths of how they are being screwed do not “set them free” but instead further demoralize them? Has such a demoralization happened in the United States?

Do some totalitarians actually want us to hear how we have been screwed because they know that humiliating passivity in the face of obvious oppression will demoralize us even further?

What forces have created a demoralized, passive, dis-couraged U.S. population?

Can anything be done to turn this around?

Although this event itself ended in January, its fallout continued and will be felt for years to come. I am referring, of course, to “Operation Cast Lead,” Israel’s attempted liquidation of the Gaza ghetto. The event is significant not only because it was premeditated slaughter, but also because it did incalculable damage did to Israel’s propaganda industry.

Britain’s Foreign Office wimps surrender to Israeli thugs

The British public must be wondering what has happened to the nation’s backbone – and its moral compass – when they see news items like these.

British Foreign Secretary David Miliband yesterday apologized to MK [Member of the Knesset] Tzipi Livni and Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman for the arrest warrant issued against Livni in London earlier this week. He also promised Lieberman to begin working immediately to change the UK laws that enable the issue of arrest warrants against Israeli officials accused of war crimes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Remember last November when a British TV Documentary described the Israel Lobby in England as just as powerful and manipulative as its American counter-part? Remember how Jewish groups insisted that the British Israel Lobby was just a myth and an anti-Semitic one at that?

And now the British government has not only withdrawn the War Crimes warrant issued against Tzipi Livni but will now change British law to make future warrants against Israelis impossible ... no matter what war crimes they commit.

Still think Britain's Israel Lobby is just a myth?

8 Cast Lead IDF heroes get decorated

Eight IDF soldiers received medals of honor on Wednesday evening for heroism they showed during Operation Cast Lead last year.

OC Southern Command Maj.-Gen. Yoav Galant, who presented the soldiers with the decorations, said that during the incursion into Gaza "the IDF reached its goals. The enemy was badly beaten. IDF soldiers acted out of faith in the justice of our cause, and their moral norms are praiseworthy."

Galant told the veterans that "In the tough hours of the trial through fire you bravely and resiliently persevered. You are a lighthouse of morality and values."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"...a lighthouse of morality and values." ?!?!?

So this is how Israel characterizes 8 war criminals whose primary job was to kill and maim as many Gazan Palestinians as possible during Operation Cast Lead, including children?!?!?!?

George Orwell is puking in his grave right now, at the way language used in this ceremony has been tortured and twisted beyond belief to convey the diametric opposite of what the IDF soldiers did during Operation Cast Lead to innocent men, women, and children.

Childhood in ruins

Ghiada's father, Atta Mohammed abu Elaish, rushed into the room. "I saw bodies without heads and legs. I saw my daughter. I saw her mother screaming." He ran outside to call an ambulance. "The Israelis stopped the ambulances 250 metres from the house. Some boys from the street came to start ferrying the bodies and the injured out of the building."

The attack was one of countless assaults during Israel's 23 days of war on Gaza – Operation Cast Lead – that began on 27 December. But it was also one of the most notorious because Ghiada's uncle – Aya's father – was a doctor who worked in Israeli hospitals and was well known to Israeli viewers for advocating peace and reconciliation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In the killing off innocent men, women, kids, and peacemakers, the Israeli demonstrates,as clearly as possible, that it has absolutely no desire for peace whatsoever

The only thing the Israeli government is interested in is increasing territory, by any means necessary.

It was the first visit by a Nato leader since Russia’s war with Georgia last year caused the most serious rift in relations since the Cold War.

Pakistan turmoil deepens as President Zardari faces corruption charges

Pakistan’s top court struck down a controversial amnesty deal yesterday that has protected President Zardari and his allies from corruption charges, deepening the country’s political turmoil as it battles Islamic militants.

The Supreme Court’s ruling prompted calls for Mr Zardari to step down and face criminal charges that were shelved two years ago as part of the amnesty. Legal experts said that the judgment could also open the way for a challenge to the legitimacy of Mr Zardari’s election.

U.S. National Debt Tops Debt Limit

The latest calculation of the National Debt as posted by the Treasury Department has - at least numerically - exceeded the statutory Debt Limit approved by Congress last February as part of the Recovery Act stimulus bill.

The ceiling was set at $12.104 trillion dollars. The latest posting by Treasury shows the National Debt at nearly $12.135 trillion.

A senior Treasury official told CBS News that the department has some "extraordinary accounting tools" it can use to give the government breathing room in the range of $150-billion when the Debt exceeds the Debt Ceiling.

The BMJ goes further to suggest that Roche, the Swiss company that manufactures and markets Tamiflu, may have misled governments and physicians. In its defense, Roche stated that the company “has never concealed (or had the intention to conceal) any pertinent data.

CLIMATEGATE - Torquemada in East Anglia

Though professional hysterics may seek to “hide the decline,” there has been a noticeable drop in the number of Americans who believe that global warming is a man-made phenomenon. Pause on that for a moment. Though Americans have been harangued about global warming for more than a decade, only 35 percent told a recent Pew survey that global warming is a serious problem, compared with 44 percent the previous year.

This skepticism predated the exposure of the East Anglia e-mails — those playful missives that reveal some of the most prominent climate researchers to be, if not outright charlatans, at least partisans.

Climategate goes SERIAL: now the Russians confirm that UK climate scientists manipulated data to exaggerate global warming

On Tuesday, the Moscow-based Institute of Economic Analysis (IEA) issued a report claiming that the Hadley Center for Climate Change based at the headquarters of the British Meteorological Office in Exeter (Devon, England) had probably tampered with Russian-climate data.

The IEA believes that Russian meteorological-station data did not substantiate the anthropogenic global-warming theory. Analysts say Russian meteorological stations cover most of the country’s territory, and that the Hadley Center had used data submitted by only 25% of such stations in its reports. Over 40% of Russian territory was not included in global-temperature calculations for some other reasons, rather than the lack of meteorological stations and observations.

The Green Hypocrites: Prince Charles and Gordon Brown take separate jets... to lecture the world on global warming

Prince Charles and Gordon Brown were accused last night of ‘green hypocrisy’ after jetting into Copenhagen to lecture the world about global warming.

Charles used the £1,019-an-hour Queen’s Flight so he could deliver a keynote speech to the climate change conference, flying back after less than three hours.

The Prime Minister chartered a 185-seat Airbus to take him and 20 aides to Denmark for their four-day trip.


Hampshire-based Carbon Footprint Limited said the prince’s round trip would have produced around 6.4tons of carbon dioxide – 5.2tons more than if he had used a commercial flight.

They also estimated that the amount of CO2 generated by Mr Brown’s flight is likely to be double that of the prince’s.

Now to most people, “rising tree mortality” raises the specter of a world with less greenery. But how does real world data compare with the virtual modeled world? Is the world getting less greener? Is there any hint of the virtual world in the real world data?

Satellite data for the real world (not the one Mr. Gore lives in) can help give us an idea.

Global warming skeptics from CFACT yesterday pulled off an international climate caper using GPS triangulation from Greenpeace's own on-board camera photos to locate and sail up long-side of the infamous Greenpeace vessel, Rainbow Warrior. Then in Greenpeace-like fashion, the CFACT activists unfurled a banner reading "Propaganda Warrior" which underscored how the radical green group’s policies and agenda are based on myths, lies, and exaggerations.

CLIMATEGATE - New Little Ice Age Instead of Global Warming?

Analysis of the sun's varying activity in the last two millennia indicates that contrary to the IPCC's speculation about man-made global warming as high as 5.8° C within the next hundred years, a long period of cool climate with its coldest phase around 2030 is to be expected.

CLIMATEGATE - A Warming Bias in the U.S. Temperature Record???

In the words of the two Arizona State University Office of Climatology researchers, the adjustments that were being made to the raw USHCN temperature data were "producing a statistically significant, but spurious, warming trend" that "approximates the widely-publicized 0.50°C increase in global temperatures over the past century." It would thus appear that in this particular case of "data-doctoring," the cure was much worse than the disease. And it likely still is! In fact, it would appear that the cure may actually be the disease.

CLIMATEGATE - The Global Warming Scam

Sixteen gallons of oil. That's how much the average American soldier in Iraq and Afghanistan consumes on a daily basis -- either directly, through the use of Humvees, tanks, trucks, and helicopters, or indirectly, by calling in air strikes. Multiply this figure by 162,000 soldiers in Iraq, 24,000 in Afghanistan, and 30,000 in the surrounding region (including sailors aboard U.S. warships in the Persian Gulf) and you arrive at approximately 3.5 million gallons of oil: the daily petroleum tab for U.S. combat operations in the Middle East war zone.

CLIMATEGATE - Here's Why People Don't Buy Global Warming

But even before the e-mails revealed that supposed neutral truth seekers were prepared to "redefine peer review," and engage in statistical sleight of hand "to hide" inconvenient truths, there were ample reasons for skepticism.
