Maybe this explains the committees on 'Sudden Climate Change' that have popped up funded by many State Legislatures - or why the DOE FY 2008 Report to Congress documented $69,849 for "Understanding Adaptation to Sudden Climate Change Impacts" the following excerpt, emphasis is mine.

over the last few years, The threat of man made global warming is a myth, the threat we face is a new ice age caused by a drop in sunspot activity that leads to a change in the Gulf stream....

It took just six months for a warm and sunny Europe to be engulfed in ice, according to new research.

Previous studies have suggested the arrival of the last Ice Age nearly 13,000 years ago took about a decade - but now scientists believe the process was up to 20 times as fast.

What if Everyone just kept their Mouth's Shut?

There are things going on in this world that are reprehensible to the degree that one hardly knows what to say. One of these things is the recent admission that a certain country has been harvesting organs from those upon whom they are practicing irrefutable genocide. It’s being said that we now have indication as to why certain obvious innocents were targeted at seeming random. It’s being said they were targeted because their appearance matched an organ need in the oppressor community. If you go to most of the alternative newsgathering sites over the last several days you will see numerous articles on what’s been happening in the organ harvesting industry of the unwilling.

Threatening Iran

Threatening Iran

By Paul Craig Roberts

20 July, 2009

When Japan attacked Pearl Harbor, Japan did not spend years preparing her public case and demonstrating her deployment of forces for the attack. Japan did not make a world issue out of her view that the US was denying Japan her role in the Pacific by hindering Japan’s access to raw materials and energy.

Similarly, when Hitler attacked Russia, he did not preface his invasion with endless threats and a public case that blamed the war on England.

Why Iranians Love and Loathe Ahmadinejad and Think Nuclear Technology's Their Right

Edito's note: Hooman Majd describes himself as one of the few people in the world who is both fully Iranian and completely American. Majd, raised in the U.S., is a distant relative of former Iranian President Mohammed Khatami, and his ability to navigate between American and Iranian culture as an insider gives him a unique perspective on two countries in conflict.

Airport control tower blacked out by power failures

All power systems failed twice Sunday morning in the air traffic facility that guides planes into and out of Stevens Anchorage International Airport via radar, the FAA confirmed Monday.

The failures included two backup systems.

"This could have happened the week before when we were in the fog. It would have been an absolute nightmare," said Larry Lescanec, Alaska vice president of the air traffic controllers union. As it was, air traffic was light.

US warns Japan over relocation of Futenma airbase

The US yesterday told Japan the planned relocation of a US marine airbase and thousands of troops based on the southern Japanese island of Okinawa was not up for negotiation in a further sign of growing tensions over the future of the US military footprint in east Asia.

Reports said the US secretary of state, Hillary Clinton, told the Japanese ambassador to Washington, Ichiro Fujisaki, that Japan must honour a 2006 agreement to move the Futenma airbase – located in a crowded city on Okinawa – to the island's remote east coast.

Iran nuclear report a forgery, says president

A leaked memo appearing to show Tehran’s efforts to design an atomic bomb trigger was forged by the United States, Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told a US news programme.

Mr Ahmadinejad was asked by ABC News about a report in London’s Times newspaper last week on what it said was a confidential Iranian technical document describing a four-year plan to test a neutron initiator, the part of a warhead that sets off an explosion.

“They are all fabricated bunch of papers continuously being forged and disseminated by the American government,” he told the US network in an interview broadcast on Monday.

9/11 Drug Pilot & Operation Blue Lightning

So while the intent of Operation Blue Lightning’s interest in Brassington remains unclear, it is fair to ask: Was Brassington’s “special handling” by Operation Blue Lightning designed to impede criminal activity? Or to facilitate it?

Operation Blue Lightning clearly fits the description provided by a top DEA official in Miami when he informed us why the DEA had not mounted an investigation into the owners of two planes caught carrying over 10 tons of cocaine in Mexico’s Yucatan:

Because the two American drug planes belonged to a “rogue” operation in U.S. Customs, explained the DEA official. So the investigation properly belonged to the Office of Investigations in the Dept of Homeland Security.

Redefining Zionism for all God’s Creatures!

This one is just too interesting to not highlight and share. It comes from the LA Times which is privately owned by the Tribune Company, which is owned and operated by the Jewish Sam Zell, the current Chairman and CEO. While I am unequivocally placing the LA Times under the kosher-party-line umbrella, I have noted some slight anomalies regarding how closely it tugs this party line. Some interesting points are outlined in this article...

Obama Extends Diplomatic Immunity to Interpol by Executive Order

President Obama has issued an amendment to Executive Order 12425, designating the international law enforcement agency Interpol as a “public international organization,” thus extending diplomatic immunity to the law enforcement group

This is a problem... I remember when people in Europe requested statistic data from Interpol concerning crime rate on illegal alien. They forbidden common people to access this data. Only special researchers cleared by EU could have access. (It sure sounds like a democarcy. Or does it?)

The Thin Blue Line Frosts and Cracks Up

In the 1987 movie The Untouchables, Sean Connery plays streetwise Chicago cop Jim Malone who utters one of the more politically incorrect lines in the film, "Isn't that just like a wop? Brings a knife to a gun fight."

The quote popped into my head after reading a story reported by the BBC – which provides better analysis of the state of American culture than many American media outlets ever could or would – present company excluded.

According to the BBC…Police in the US are investigating a detective who appears to draw his gun during a mass snowball fight on the streets of Washington DC.

What is the Aim of the Gaza Freedom March?

Interview by Bianca Zammit – Gaza:

How can those people who cannot come to Gaza show their solidarity with the people of Gaza?

Dr. Haidar Eid – We are calling on 1.5 million conscientious people of the world to simultaneously rally with the 1.5 million inhabitants of Gaza in front of Israeli embassies in their country. Richard Falk, the 2008 appointed UN Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Palestinian Territories has called Gaza the “world’s largest concentration camp”. Ilan Pappe has described the siege as “slow motion genocide”. After the 22 day massacre last winter we returned to the ongoing siege.

We ask freedom loving people to put pressure on their governments to sever all ties with Israel and to support the boycott of Israel…

Health care costs to grow under overhaul

WASHINGTON - Democrats trying to push President Obama’s health care overhaul plan through the Senate got a sober warning yesterday that costs will keep going up and proposed Medicare savings may harm the program.

A new report from government economic analysts at the Health and Human Services Department found that the nation’s $2.5 trillion annual health care tab won’t shrink under the Democratic blueprint that senators are debating. Instead, it would grow somewhat more rapidly than if Congress does nothing.

Pakistani court orders 2 men to have noses, ears cut off after they did same to woman

A Pakistani court has ordered the noses and ears of two men cut off after they did the same thing to a young woman whose family spurned one of the men's marriage proposal, a prosecutor said Tuesday.


Alas, the sentence probably won't be carried out in its entirety. IMHO, they deserve much worse!

Health Canada seeks input on adding anti-cancer drug to junk food.

Ottawa wants to know what you think about its unusual proposal to put a cancer-fighting drug into junk food.

Health Canada is inviting public comments until February 21 on its idea to have small amounts of the enzyme asparaginase put into foods like potato chips and french fries. On its website, Health Canada says its scientists have finished a detailed safety assessment on the enzyme and haven't found any health or safety concerns.


Make the politicians families consume it for 5 years as a test. If it is really that safe, they should have no complaints.

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including section 1 of the International Organizations Immunities Act (22 U.S.C. 288), and in order to extend the appropriate privileges, exemptions, and immunities to the International Criminal Police Organization (INTERPOL), it is hereby ordered that Executive Order 12425 of June 16, 1983, as amended, is further amended by deleting from the first sentence the words "except those provided by Section 2(c), Section 3, Section 4, Section 5, and Section 6 of that Act" and the semicolon that immediately precedes them.

Obama’s Right: The Insurance Companies and the New Dems Will Never Have an Opportunity Like This Again

When Barak Obama said that we have to pass this bill (this perversion of our election day mandate to reform healthcare in America) because we will not see an opportunity like this again for a very long time, he was absolutely correct. After almost a year of backroom deals and secret negotiations, the insurance/pharmaceutical industries will never again be this close to a deal this good and the neoliberal New Dems will never be so close to gaining absolute control of the Democratic Party. Never.

A Left-Environmentalist Speaks Out Against "global warming" and "climate change."


If I can be classified it would be as a left-leaning environmentalist, with a history of environmental concerns dating back to my pre-teen years in the 1960s. I was one of the founders of the Alberta Greens political party in 1990 based on support for a federal Green candidate in 1988, and was the party's president until 2004 and then CFO until a right-wing takeover in late 2008.

I have organized my position on global warming/climate change as a self-interview because my concerns have arisen as I have been asked more questions about this and some of my green friends exhibit shock at my position.

Climategate: Questions over business deals of UN climate change guru Dr Rajendra Pachauri

What has also almost entirely escaped attention, however, is how Dr Pachauri has established an astonishing worldwide portfolio of business interests with bodies which have been investing billions of dollars in organisations dependent on the IPCC’s policy recommendations.

These outfits include banks, oil and energy companies and investment funds heavily involved in ‘carbon trading’ and ‘sustainable technologies’, which together make up the fastest-growing commodity market in the world, estimated soon to be worth trillions of dollars a year.

Former head of CDC lands lucrative job as president of Merck vaccine division

You’ve heard it before, how the pharmaceutical industry has a giant “revolving door” through which corporations and government agencies frequently exchange key employees. That reality was driven home in a huge way today when news broke that Dr. Julie Gerberding, who headed the Center for Disease Control (CDC) from 2002 through 2009, landed a top job with Merck, one of the largest drug companies in the world. Her job there? She’s the new president of the vaccine division.

How convenient. That means the former head of the CDC was very likely cultivating a relationship with Merck all these years, and now comes the big payoff: Heading up a $5 billion division that sells cervical cancer vaccines (like Gardasil), chickenpox vaccines and of course H1N1 swine flu vaccines, too.
