Why has the UN Climate Change Report Ignored 15-Year 'Pause' in Warming

Despite the fact that global warming has been thoroughly debunked as a fraud by the climategate leaked emails, the 15 year pause in warming, the growth of the Greenland ice cap, and the statement signed by over 30,000 scientists disputing the assertion of man made global warming etc, global warming was and still is the backbone of the plan to control the world. Without global warming there is no need for UN Agenda 21. They will not let it go.

The clam that CO2 is causing global warming and therefore has to be controlled is a noose around humanity’s neck. That means the government can control every aspect of our lives with countless regulations restricting everything from our mobility, our habitat, our food and beverage consumption, the crops we grow, the number of livestock we own and the way we manage them, and on and on and on…

They can do this because they own most corporations, most media outlets, most governments, most academic institutions, most foundations, Hollywood, the music industry, etc., etc., etc., ad nauseam…so they control the flow of information. The sheeple are not going to bother to actually look for the truth if it’s not spoon fed to them.

And because global warming is a major industry involving billions upon billions, and probably trillions of dollars. Many climate scientists, academic institutions, research facilities, etc., rely on government grants to fund research and are not going to kill the goose laying the golden eggs. People like AlGore have made a killing riding the global warming horse, they are not about to dismount willingly.

Another reason global warming is not going away is that it has become a vital doctrine of the goddess Gia’s ‘Mother Earth’ religion whose adherents are shamefully more faithful to her than Christians are to Christ!

So ‘global warming/climate change is not going to go away…

UN Climate Change Report Ignores 15-Year 'Pause' in Warming

by Tony Lee 28 Sep 2013 1433 post a comment

An exhaustive United Nations report that claimed with 95% certainty that humans are responsible for global warming left out data that found the planet has stopped warming over the last 15 years, because it did not fit with the climate change agenda it wanted to advance. 

The report, produced by the U.N.'s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC),  could not explain "why the planet has largely stopped warming over the past 15 years." So it just ignored it. According to the climate data from the U.K.'s weather-watching Met Office, "global surface temperatures rose rapidly during the 70s," but they have "have been relatively flat over the past decade and a half, rising only 0.05 degrees Celsius (0.09 degrees Fahrenheit)."

In September, a draft of the U.N. report simply could not explain why the surface temperatures have not warmed.

“Due to natural variability, trends based on short records are very sensitive to the beginning and end dates and do not in general reflect long-term climate trends,” the report now reads. "There may also be ... an overestimate of the response to increasing greenhouse gas and other anthropogenic forcing."

Judith Curry, professor and chair of the School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at the Georgia Institute of Technology, said if the "if the pause continues beyond 15 years (well it already has), they are toast.”

There have been many reports that have shown how climate models have vastly overestimated "warming." For instance, a study in the journal Nature Climate Change "compared 117 climate predictions made in the 1990's to the actual amount of warming" and 114 of those predictions overestimated the amount of warming. Other studies have found that various climate models used by the United Nations have "forecasted two times more global warming than actually occurred." 

As Breitbart News reported, a group of 50 international scientists released a comprehensive new report, which cited thousands of peer-reviewed articles the United Nations-sponsored panel on climate change ignored, "concluded that evidence now leans against global warming resulting from human-related greenhouse gas emissions."

Weatherman who cried about climate-change lives in a cave…he must!

Scientists have admitted there has been no warming for 15 years and ‘global warming’ was exposed as a fraud in the climategate leaked emails yet this weatherman cried at the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s findings?

That’s why I deduced the weatherman lives in a cave, the pictures are further proof, he’s a cave dweller. How else can you explain his reaction, his crying. Surely if he lived outside he would know about the hoax.

However, it is possible that he read the report after ingesting some ‘shrooms’ and tweeted while still under the influence…

  • Eric Holthaus, who used to do weather for Wall Street Journal, was reacting to Friday's findings from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change
  • Scientists found in the report that it was 'extremely likely' that humans are causing warming trends
  • Holthaus said he has decided not to have children in order to leave a lighter carbon footprint, and has considered having a vasectomy

'An old rule says that climate-relevant trends should not be calculated for periods less than around 30 years,' said Thomas Stocker, co-chair of the group that wrote the report.

The IPCC said the evidence of climate change has grown thanks to more and better observations, a clearer understanding of the climate system and improved models to analyse the impact of rising temperatures.

The full 2,000-page report isn't going to be released until Monday, but the summary for policymakers with the key findings was published Friday.

It contained few surprises as many of the findings had been leaked in advance.

The IPCC raised its projections of the rise in sea levels to 10-32 inches (26-82 centimeters) by the end of the century, compared to previous reports predicting a rise of 7-23 inches (18-59 centimeters)

The IPCC raised its projections of the rise in sea levels to 10-32 inches (26-82 centimeters) by the end of the century, compared to previous reports predicting a rise of 7-23 inches (18-59 centimeters)

As expected, the IPCC raised its projections of the rise in sea levels to 10-32 inches (26-82 centimeters) by the end of the century. The previous report predicted a rise of 7-23 inches (18-59 centimeters).

Using four scenarios with different emissions controls, the report projected that global average temperatures would rise by 0.3 to 4.8 degrees C this century. That's 0.5-8.6 F.

The report adopted Friday deals with the physical science of climate change.

Next year, the IPCC will adopt reports on the impacts of global warming, strategies to fight it and a synthesis of all three reports.

Pulitzer-prize winning journalist: Bin Laden Raid “One Big Lie”

Seymour Hersh: Bin Laden Raid “One Big Lie”

Pulitzer-prize wining(sic) journalist slams “pathetic” US media for failing to challenge White House

Paul Joseph Watson Infowars.com September 27, 2013

Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Seymour Hersh says that the raid which killed Osama Bin Laden in 2011 is “one big lie” and that “not one word” of the Obama administration’s narrative on what happened is true.

Image: President Obama.

In a wide-ranging interview published today by the Guardian, Hersh savages the US media for failing to challenge the White House on a whole host of issues, from NSA spying, to drone attacks, to aggression against Syria.

On the subject of the Navy Seal raid that supposedly resulted in the death of the Al-Qaeda terror leader, Hersh remarked, “Nothing’s been done about that story, it’s one big lie, not one word of it is true.”

Hersh added that the Obama administration habitually lies but they continue to do so because the press allows them to get away with it.

“It’s pathetic, they are more than obsequious, they are afraid to pick on this guy [Obama],” Hersh told the Guardian.

The raid that supposedly led to Bin Laden’s death has been shrouded in mystery for over two years. Speculation that the Obama administration may have embellished or outright lied about the true account of what happened has persisted, mainly because the White House has refused to publicly release images of Bin Laden’s body.

Although the White House said the corpse was immediately “buried at sea” in line with Islamic tradition, it quickly emerged that this was not standard practice.

Numerous analysts have claimed that Bin Laden had in fact been dead for years and that the raid on his alleged compound in Pakistan was little more than a stunt.

Other questions also persist, such as why the narrative and timeline of the raid has changed multiple times, why the White House initially claimed that “situation room” photos showed Obama watching the raid live when in fact there was a blackout on the live feed, and why neighbors in the immediate area surrounding the compound said with absolute certainty that they had never seen Bin Laden and that they knew of no evidence whatsoever to suggest he lived there.

During the rest of the Guardian interview, which is well worth reading in its entirety, Hersh lambastes the corporate press and particularly the New York Times, which he says spends “so much more time carrying water for Obama than I ever thought they would.”

Hersh’s solution is to shut down news networks like NBC and ABC and fire 90% of mainstream editors, replacing them with real journalists who are outsiders and not afraid to speak truth to power.

“The republic’s in trouble, we lie about everything, lying has become the staple,” concluded Hersh.

The Cyprus Caper: You may be storing money in your bank account for the government

The first thing I thought about when news of the Greek government’s confiscation of it’s citizens bank account funds was if the Greek government gets away this with other governments will follow.

Well, it’s started,  Financial sources say that the government of Poland just “raided” private pension funds in an effort to reduce the size of their government debt. And there are reports that Italy and Canada are drafting legislation to allow them to steal their citizens funds; Canada has actually written a “bail-in” provision into its new government budget…

But don’t worry, it couldn’t possibly happen in America. Our bank accounts and pension funds are as ‘solid as a dollar’!…

Governments stealing from bank accounts

  • 'Bail-ins' taking depositors' money could be headed to U.S.

F. Michael Maloof

GoldCoins32

WASHINGTON – The questionable practice of “bail-ins” begun by Cyprus a year ago to keep banks solvent is beginning to spread to other nations, and holders of large deposits are starting to see their balances plunge literally overnight.

A “bail-in,” as opposed to a bailout that countries especially in Europe have been seeking from the International Monetary Fund and the European Union, is a recognition that such outside monetary injections won’t be forthcoming.

Consequently, banks have been seeking money from another source – their large depositors. The funds are simply taken and applied to a bank’s recapitalization in lieu of government bailouts.

The practice essentially is a transfer from a personal savings account to the bank’s operating account, without the customers’ permission or even any notice.

The example set in Cyprus when the island nation confronted its financial crisis now is spreading to such other countries as Italy, Poland, New Zealand and now Canada.

Financial experts agree that the practice soon could spread to the United States.

The “bail-in” a year ago in Cyprus developed after the island nation was refused further outside financing from the IMF and the European Central Bank of the EU, of which the Mediterranean island is a member.

Cyprus never was looked upon as a place to spend money. Instead, it was seen more as a place to safely hide large deposits of cash for private individuals and companies not only in Europe and Russia but for major shareholders and top executives from all over the world.

Hiding huge sums of cash was made easy in Cyprus with such mechanisms as outright bank deposits, shell companies and holding companies, with massive transfers taking place between them.

“Cyprus was a leader – in some circles and for some applications, the leader – in quiet storage, management and structuring of exceptionally large sums for private individuals and corporations all over the world,” financial expert Franklin Raff wrote in a March 2013 WND article.

“Cypriots were fast learners in the fields of global asset protection and ‘tax optimization,’” Raff said. “Cyprus’ 2004 entrance into the E.U. gave financial operations a deeper veneer of legitimacy and security.

“All of this meant almost a decade of rapidly expanding business,” he said. “This was surely from Europeans and Russians wary of unpredictable tax laws and indiscriminate, extralegal confiscations, but also from entities in North America and elsewhere.”

Because a long line of EU banks had been bailed out at major public expense during the 2008-2009 financial crisis, the EU decided to turn down two of Cyprus’ major banks, Laiki and the Bank of Cyprus, for similar help.

In an effort to save the Cypriot economy from collapse, the government passed a law that took some 4.3 billion euros in deposits belonging to some 14,000 depositors just in the Laiki bank alone, leaving each depositor with no more than 100,000 euros, the limit on deposit insurance under EU regulations.

Ultimately, Laiki bank folded, with depositors’ diminished assets transferred to the Bank of Cyprus.

In an effort to recapitalize the Bank of Cyprus, Cypriot officials imposed a 47.5 percent loss on deposits exceeding the 100,000 euro limit, exchanging the seized deposits for shares in the bank.

Depositors in Cyprus lost an estimated total of 10.6 billion euros.

In viewing the recapitalization experience in Cyprus, financial experts say “bail-ins” are increasingly becoming accepted practice around the world due to the lack of any outside bailouts.

In jeopardy will be all private bank accounts and private pension funds.

Financial sources say that the government of Poland just “raided” private pension funds in an effort to reduce the size of the government debt.

According to a Reuters report, the Polish government will transfer to the state many of the assets held by private pension funds, slashing public debt but putting in doubt the future of the multi-billion-euro funds, much of which is foreign-owned.

“The Polish government is doing the best that it can to make this sound like some sort of complicated legal maneuver, but the truth is that what they have done is stolen private assets without giving any compensation in return,” said financial expert Michael Snyder writing for the Financial Collapse blog.

Now, finance ministers in the EU are undertaking a similar approach.

They have approved a plan to force bondholders and shareholders to finance future bank failures before going to taxpayers for bailouts.

This will apply to bondholders and shareholders with deposits over 100,000 euros. Those with less than 100,000 euros of insured deposits will be protected.

“What this means is that if you have over 100,000 euros in a bank account in Europe, you could lose every single bit of the unprotected amount if your bank collapses,” Snyder said.

Italy also is organizing a form of its own “bail-in” for the country’s oldest bank as it has halted any further interest payments and doesn’t intend to make up for the missed payments if and when they resume.

While deposits will remain untouched for now, financial experts believe it will only be a matter of time before its depositors experience a Cypriot-type “bail-in.”

In Canada, the government has actually written a “bail-in” provision into its new government budget proposal in its “Economic Action Plan 2013.”

“This new budget actually proposes to implement a ‘bail-in’ regime for systemically important banks’ in Canada,” Snyder said.

Snyder believes that governments throughout the world will be eyeing depositors’ money as part of the solution to halt future failures of major banks.

“As a result, there is no longer any truly ‘safe’ place to put your money,” Snyder said.

“One of the best ways to protect yourself is to spread your money around,” he said. “In other words, don’t put all of your eggs in one basket. If you have your money in a bunch of different places, it is going to be much harder for the government to grab it all.

“But if you don’t listen to the warnings and you continue to keep all of your wealth in one giant pile somewhere, don’t be surprised when you get wiped out in a single moment someday,” he added.

That certainly was the experience of the Andrew Georgiou family in Cyprus earlier this year. Literally overnight, his life’s savings of 750,000 euros, except for 100,000 euros which were covered by deposit insurance, were wiped out. Georgiou subsequently had a heart attack, though he survived.

He, like hundreds of other depositors in Cyprus, has gone to court against the central bank and the Cypriot government, but the outcome is far from certain.

FOX is not what conservatives think they are: Fox Sports fires Craig James for gay marriage comment

FOX is what’s known as controlled opposition, they were created to manage conservative ideology on the media. They wear conservative masks but can only carry that conservatism just so far.

Why do you think they refused to cover Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse’s official law enforcement investigation into Obama’s birth certificate forgery and fraudulent social security number? 

Craig James: Fox Sports firing for gay marriage comment a ‘terrible mistake’

By Cheryl K. Chumley - The Washington Times Tuesday, September 24, 2013

Craig James, the fired Fox Sports Southwest broadcaster, said that it’s unconscionable he was let go for his religious views and that the network will either rehire him or face a civil rights lawsuit.

“I was shocked that my personal religious beliefs were not only the reason for Fox Sports firing me, but I was completely floored when I read stories quoting Fox Sports representatives essentially saying that people of faith are banned from working at Fox Sports,” Mr. James told Breitbart News. “That is not right and surely someone made a terrible mistake.”

Mr. James, a former NFL running back who was a broadcaster for ESPN and CBS, was hired Aug. 30 to join the studio analysis team for “Fox College Saturday.” At the time of the hire, Mike Anastassiou, the show’s executive producer, called him a “talented broadcaster” with massive “knowledge of college football.”

Just days later, however, Mr. James was fired after statements he made last year during his failed Senate bid in Texas about his religious views on marriage resurfaced.

“People choose to be gay,” he said during an April 2012 campaign appearance. “I think it’s a choice, I do. Same-sex marriage, if someone chooses to do that, that’s done. And God’s going to judge each one of us in this room for our actions. And in that case right there, they’re going to have to answer to the Lord for their actions.”

A Fox Sports Southwest spokesman told a Dallas Morning News reporter that “we just asked ourselves how Craig’s statements would play in our human resources department. He couldn’t say those things here.”

But Mr. James‘ legal team claims he has a solid case of discrimination. In a letter sent to Fox Sports on Tuesday, Liberty Institute’s general counsel Jeff Mateer wrote that the “decision to terminate Craig James because of Mr. James‘ religious beliefs is a severe violation” of his liberties, under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

Mr. Mateer pointed out that Fox actually solicited Mr. James for the position, knowing full well his political background.

“The actions have also led to the breach of Craig James‘ contract and the impugnment of his career,” the letter states. “We demand the immediate reinstatement [of] Mr. James to the on-air college football analyst position. If you refuse to reinstate Mr. James, millions of Americans will be left with the impression that you do not respect religious liberty and Liberty Institute will be forced to pursue subsequent legal options.”

‘Shame on Obama’: There is a global war against Christians and Obama is deeply involved

At present it’s a soft war in the West, they are stripping Christians rights in the name of political correctness, they aren’t killing us…yet!

That will change, you can bank on it and the longer the killing is allowed to go on unchallenged in other parts of the world the faster it will come to us.

Why would Obama be complicit in the murder of Christians? Could it be because he is a Muslim?

A staggering 100,000 Christians are killed annually because of their faith, according to the Vatican — and several human rights groups claim such anti-Christian violence is on the rise in countries like Pakistan, Nigeria and Egypt.. During the last few weeks the killing and beheading of Christians has dramatically increased. End time prophecy predicted that this would happen.

An Egyptian Christian leader is calling out President Barack Obama and his administration for not doing enough in face of intense persecution against the Church by the Muslim Brotherhood.

Following the recent barrage of church burnings, Father Rafic Greiche, the chief spokesman for the Catholic Church in Egypt, criticized President Obama for not speaking out against the worst violence against Egyptian Christians in nearly 700 years. cbn.com

Obama Has No Red Line for Beheading, Raping Girls and Killing Christians

In other words, for Obama, Kerry, McCain and Graham, and many others who are assisting sectarian and terrorist forces; they don’t have any red lines for cleansing Christians, killing Alawites, children being killed for blasphemy, raping women, slaughtering the Shia, beheading civilians, killing Syrian women who refuse to marry jihadists and so forth. Indeed, the so-called opposition can even kidnap Christian bishops and kill Christian priests because nothing stops America, France and the United Kingdom from providing propaganda for the FSA and various al-Qaeda forces. gopthedailydose.com

Obama Gives Money To Syrian Rebels Who Behead Innocent Christians

Obama sure does love to spread the wealth around.

Now he’s giving our hard-earned tax dollars to Syrian rebels, who have been violently killing innocent Christian civilians and using 14-year-old children to carry out their brutal plans. Many of the murdered Christians have been beheaded in public sessions that are attended by a cheering crowd. mrconservative.com

”When he opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain for the word of God and for the witness they had borne. They cried out with a loud voice, “O Sovereign Lord, holy and true, how long before you will judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?” Then they were each given a white robe and told to rest a little longer, until the number of their fellow servants and their brothers should be complete, who were to be killed as they themselves had been.

They have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. “Therefore they are before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple; and he who sits on the throne will shelter them with his presence. They shall hunger no more, neither thirst anymore; the sun shall not strike them, nor any scorching heat.

The Fed’s QE poison pill and the rape of Lady Liberty

In simple terms the Federal Reserve is the governments banker. Though it has a relationship with the the government, e. g. it’s chairman is appointed by the president and approved by congress, it is not owned by the government, is not a government agency, it is in fact a privately owned bank. They named it the Federal Reserve in order to deceive the public.

Now, as a private bank whose interest do you think they serve? If it’s a choice between the governments interest and theirs, they are going to serve their own interest every time.

I won’t go into all the sordid details about the Fed in this post, read ‘The Creature From Jekyll Island’,  because I want to talk about one aspect, quantitative easing aka QE.

After the crash of 2007 and the failure of TARP, Cash for Clunkers, the multiple stimulus bills, etc., to heal the economy, the Fed decided to pump money into the economy to the tune of 85 billion dollars a month to allegedly ‘stimulate’ the economy. They said they were ‘easing’ the pain of a collapsed economy, thus the term: quantitative easing aka QE.

Where does this money come from? They just print it out of thin air. Where does it go? Basically it goes into the stock market. Since it is the rich who mostly owns stock it goes to the rich. Again where does it come from…out of thin air. That effectively means it comes out of mine and your pockets.

That 85 billion dollars a month has the effect of watering down the money supply so that the dollar loses value each time they put that 85 billion dollars into the economy, propping up the stock market and thereby increasing the wealth of the wealthy at the expense of the rest of us. To use an old phrase, ‘it’s highway robbery’ and all under the guise of helping the economy.

QE has had the effect of staving off an economic collapse because of the false confidence in the stock market. The markets were expecting the Fed to start tapering off of the easing at their last meeting and the markets dropped significantly at the prospect so the Fed decided to continue as is. Bernanke is on the way out and maybe just passed the buck to the next chairman.

Now they are trapped. Keep pumping the money into the economy until the other nations lose confidence in the dollar, as they surely will, and the economy collapses or stop the QE now and face the collapse now. Either way it’s going to happen. 

What can our leaders do when faced with the virtual certainty of economic collapse? There is nothing in the realm of ‘the normal’ they can do since 2 + 2 always = 4, the numbers don’t lie!

Kings used to solve this kind of problem by invading other nations, maybe they are planning on conquering other nations. Maybe that’s what the ‘new world order’ and ‘war on terror’ is all about. Who is behind the Arab Spring anyway? Obama claimed credit for it…

The Fed's 'hidden agenda' behind money-printing

By: Peter J. Tanous

The markets were surprised when the Federal Reserve did not announce a tapering of the quantitative easing bond buying program at its September meeting. Indeed, its signal to the market that it was keeping interest rates low was welcome, but there may be a hidden agenda.

Since it began in late 2008, QE has spurred a vigorous debate about its merits, both positive and negative.

On the positive side, the easy money and low interest rates resulting from quantitative easing have been a shot in the arm to the economy, fueling the stock market and helping the housing recovery. On the negative side, The Fed accomplished QE by "printing money" to buy Treasurys, and through the massive power of its purchases drove interest rates to record lows.

But in the process, the Fed accumulated an unprecedented balance sheet of more than $3.6 trillion which needs to go somewhere, someday.

But we know all this.

I believe that one of the most important reasons the Fed is determined to keep interest rates low is one that is rarely talked about, and which comprises a dark economic foreboding that should frighten us all.

The economy is stronger than it looks, said Dennis Gartman, The Gartman Letter, sharing his outlook on gold, the next Fed chairman and the fate of Treasury rates.

Let me start with a question: How would you feel if you knew that almost all of the money you pay in personal income tax went to pay just one bill, the interest on the debt? Chances are, you and millions of Americans would find that completely unacceptable and indeed they should.

But that is where we may be heading.

Thanks to the Fed, the interest rate paid on our national debt is at an historic low of 2.4 percent, according to the Congressional Budget Office.

Given the U.S.'s huge accumulated deficit, this low interest rate is important to keep debt servicing costs down.

But isn't it fair to ask what the interest cost of our debt would be if interest rates returned to a more normal level? What's a normal level? How about the average interest rate the Treasury paid on U.S. debt over the last 20 years?

That rate is 5.7percent, not extravagantly high at all by historic standards.

So here's where it gets scary: U.S. debt held by the public today is about $12 trillion. The budget deficit projections are going down, true, but the United States is still incurring an annual budget deficit by spending more than we take in in taxes and revenue.

The CBO estimates that by 2020 total debt held by the public will be $16.6 trillion as a result of the rising accumulated debt.

Do the math: If we were to pay an average interest rate on our debt of 5.7 percent, rather than the 2.4 percent we pay today, in 2020 our debt service cost will be about $930 billion.

Now compare that to the amount the Internal Revenue Service collects from us in personal income taxes.

In 2012, that amount was $1.1 trillion, meaning that if interest rates went back to a more normal level of, say, 5.7 percent, 85 percent of all personal income taxes collected would go to servicing the debt. No wonder the Fed is worried.

Some economists will also suggest that interest rates may go much higher than 5.7 percent largely as a result of the massive QE exercise of printing money at an unprecedented rate. We just don't know what the effect of all this will be but many economists warn that it can only result in inflation down the road.

As of today, interest rates are rising, and if this is a turning point, it is a major one.

Rates in the U.S. peaked in 1980 (remember the 14 percent Treasury bonds?) so if we are at the point of reversing a 33-year downward trend, who wants to predict how this will affect the economy?

One thing is clear: Based on CBO projections, if interest rates just rise to their 20-year average, we will have an untenable, unacceptable interest rate bill whose beneficiaries are China, Japan, and others who own our bonds.

And if Americans find out that the lion's share of their income tax payments are going to service the debt, prepare for a new American revolution.

We know what you did…how they maintain control

Why would the government want to spy on us? They want to control us! We’re human, we do things we are ashamed of, that we wouldn’t want made known. If someone knew those things they could have us ‘under their thumb’.

I read that when the FBI investigates someone they gather all kinds of information and store it in that someone’s file whether the information is true or not, even rumors and unsubstantiated allegations.

That’s why members of congress often vote in ways contrary to their stated views and against their constituent’s wishes. Call it extortion or blackmail but it comes down to control.

That’s why the government is busy gathering every bit of information about us they can. They plan to use it to keep us in line or to mark us for reeducation and/or elimination.

The government wants us to know they have this power to intimidate us, that’s why they created WikiLeaks. Do you believe that with all the spying the government does it didn’t know about Julian Assange and couldn’t catch him or stop him? My guess is the it is a CIA operation.

That’s one of the reasons for the confessional in the Catholic Church. What do the priests do with the secrets they know?

The government is sending a message to potential leakers with this case, why do you think they mentioned child pornography charges in the story? We know what you did…

Former FBI Agent Pleads Guilty in AP Leak Case

Monday, 23 Sep 2013 06:06 PM

A former FBI agent is pleading guilty to charges he leaked secrets about a failed terror plot in a case in which authorities seized the phone records of Associated Press reporters, the US Justice Department said Monday.

The ex-agent, Donald Sachtleben, "willfully disclosed ... national defense information to a person not authorized to receive it, namely a reporter with a national news organization," the department said. Sachtleben also was ready to plead guilty to child pornography charges, it said.

Welcome to the 3rd party, tea partiers not welcome by ruling class in either party

Senator Ted Cruz was a guest on Chris Wallace’s Fox Sunday show recently and as usual opponents sent in all kinds of opposition research (dirt) they could dig up to Wallace in hopes that he would bring it up against the guest.

That’s SOP (standard operation procedures) but what is unusual about it in this case is that much of the opposition research was sent in by his own party associates. His own party is attacking him!

He is being attacked by both sides which should be a clue that there is no difference in the sides. They are really the same side. They have the same agenda and are controlled by the same aristocracy.

The republicans want nothing to do with tea party types because they are not owned by the PTB (powers that be).

For oh so many years the republicans and democrats have pulled the wool over our eyes by portraying themselves as on opposite sides when in reality they are working towards the same goal, i. e., the destruction of the American way of life.

Yes, Joe McCarthy was right! He tried to stop the communists infiltration but it was too late, they were too entrenched by then.

The tea party movement was truly a grass roots movement apart from either party so it cannot exist within either party since it is not subject to their control.

By the way the PTB are the Jesuits, the Illuminati, the Freemasons, the cabalists banksters, Skull & Bones, and their subsets like the CFR, TLC, Bilderbergers, Bohemian Grove,etc….

FutureScape: San Antonio declares war on Christians, embraces principles of communism, Nazism…

This is the sad future, and it’s not a distant future. I’m afraid this future is now!

Read this story and see if it doesn’t remind you of Communist, and Nazi Party tactics. If you weren’t a party member you were second class citizens. That is what is going on in San Antonio Texas today! It won’t stop in San Antonio!

Did you ever dream that discrimination would be one of the weapons used to destroy America? A nation destroyed by political correctness. A nation built upon righteousness destroyed by a twisting of that righteousness. A nation built upon wisdom has become a nation of fools!

It didn’t happen by chance, we’ve (WASPs) been at war since the Council of Trent where the heretics (protestants/WASPs) were cursed 150 times), only we didn’t know it. The Jesuits (the pope’s army) and their Superior General, led by Lucifer, have laid waste to the Great Protestant Reformation…

Romans 1 (Holy Bible, King James Version (KJV))

22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

San Antonio Discriminates Against Christians

By Onan Coca / 23 September 2013

The city of San Antonio, Texas is a beautiful and interesting place to visit. There are plenty of touristy things to do in the city, and a lot of great amusement to be found. However, Christians in this city may soon find themselves living as second class citizens. The city council there had been considering a measure all summer that they say guarantees equal protection to everyone living in the city. What it really does, is bow to pressure from the local homosexual community and strip the rights of conservatives and Christians.

The city council has been considering an update to their anti-discrimination policies that could ensure no traditional marriage supporter could ever again sit on the city council. “No person shall be appointed to a position if the city council finds that such person has, prior to such proposed appointment, engaged in discrimination or demonstrated a bias, by word or deed, against any person, group or organization on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, veteran status, age, or disability,” the ordinance reads.

Local Pastor, Charles Flowers says, “The ordinance also says that if you have at any point demonstrated a bias — without defining what a bias is or who will determine whether or not one has been exercised — that you cannot get a city contract... Neither can any of your subcontractors [who have demonstrated a bias] sign on to the contract.”

JulianCastro and ObamaWell, supporters of the ordinance have won. The city council recently voted to pass revision to the anti-discrimination policy. In a 9-3 vote, they passed the resolution with liberal San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro saying, “It's a common-sense ordinance that's going to treat everyone equally… Nobody will be a second-class citizen in San Antonio. Here, there will be basic fairness and common decency for everybody.”

But some will be second-class citizens in San Antonio now. Anyone who believes that marriage should only be between a man and a woman will be discriminated against. Anyone who believes homosexuality to be morally wrong will be discriminated against. Anyone who has ever shown any indication to believe these things will be legally discriminated against by the government (and by proxy, the people) of San Antonio. In fact, it is now codified into law that certain people cannot hold government office or be employed with government funds because of their personal beliefs on homosexuality.

What this law did was not provide “fairness” for everybody… it ensured that certain people, namely Christians, will be made into a lower class of citizen. Fellow conservatives who believe that homosexuality is a moral wrong… by law in San Antonio, Texas, we now have less rights than other citizens.

What have they done to the Gulf states: BP oil volcano, Corexit poisoning, sink holes, and now brain-eating amoeba

I know you remember the BP mess but are you aware of the sinkhole problems in Louisiana. There are some really scary scenarios out there about what the BP disaster will eventually result in for the Gulf.

This may be a coincidence but as has been said ‘there are no coincidences…

Brain-eating amoeba rattles nerves in La. parish

By JANET McCONNAUGHEY Associated Press

NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- While officials try to pin down the source of a deadly amoeba found in the water supply of a suburban New Orleans community, bottled water sales in St. Bernard Parish have skyrocketed and some people worry about washing their faces in the shower.

That's despite experts who say the only danger is to people who manage to get the microscopic organism way up their noses. Its only entry to the brain is through minute openings in a bone about level with the top of the eyeball, said Dr. Raoult Ratard, Louisiana's state epidemiologist.

But belief comes hard to many people. "As far as taking a bath or shower, you got no other choice," said Debbie Sciortino. "But I ain't drinking it, I ain't giving it to the dogs and I ain't cooking with it either."

The state Department of Health and Hospitals on Thursday tried to dispel common "myths and rumors" about the amoeba Naegleria fowleri (nuh-GLEE-ree-uh FOW-ler-eye) - starting with the notion that the parish water isn't safe to drink. Meanwhile, the parish held a public meeting about its water Thursday night.

The worries began Sept. 12, when the state health department reported that parish water in Violet and Arabi tested positive for the amoeba that had killed a 4-year-old Mississippi boy in August after he visited St. Bernard Parish

Jonathan Yoder, an epidemiologist in the Center for Disease Control and Prevention's waterborne disease prevention branch, said Naegleria has never before been found in water treated by a U.S. water system.

There have been 132 documented infections from the amoeba since 1962, almost all of them fatal, health officials say.

Pro 2nd amendment article has pole that asks which Obama scandal worse…leaves out ‘Fast and Furious’

I wanted to share this article for 2 reasons. It’s a good article about the stupidity of the argument for ‘gun free zones’ and it has a pole about Obama’s scandal doesn’t even mention ‘Fast and Furious’!

How sad that the republicans have been so wimpy with the lawless and treasonous impostor in the white house. This Manchurian Candidate has been virtually unopposed as he has raped and pillaged this once great nation. One could argue that not only have they not reigned him in but have actually facilitated him.

It is telling that even this pro-American publication has forgotten ‘Fast and Furious’, a scandal so egregious that it by itself would have brought down any previous administration. The republicans held some hearings and made some fuss but nothing like they should have done.

Yet this president, who disregards federal laws he doesn’t like, ignores federal judges orders, issues Executive Orders in droves that violate the constitution, takes over the banking and auto industries, gives aid and comfort to our enemies, etc., etc., etc., ad nauseam, is not even challenged in any substantial way by the OPPOSITION party for 6 long years????

There is no opposition party, they are joined at the hip in this quest to destroy the America we have known in the past. There is no way he could have survived 6 years if there were a true opposition party. You must see this if we are to have a chance at reclaiming our once great nation.

Guns Don't Kill - Gun Free Zones Do

By Onan Coca / 20 September 2013

In no way do I want to minimize or trivialize any of the mass shootings we have watched take place in recent years by dumbing down the causes to one or two issues. However, with the liberal media’s withering attack on gun rights which uses these attacks as their “ammunition,” some kind of response is necessary to combat the misinformation. We are a nation of over three hundred million people, and an estimated 270 million guns are spread out among us. We are the most well-armed nation in the world, a heritage passed down to us through the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution, which guarantees the right of every American (who is not a felon) to carry a firearm.

Even with these gaudy numbers of guns and gun owners, gun violence in America among legal gun owners is statistically insignificant. In fact, the vast majority of gun crime is committed by criminals who carry their weapons illegally. Meanwhile, in America, a gun is 7 times more likely to stop a crime than to commit one.

gunfreezone2Furthermore, consider the recent and most famous instances of mass shootings in the news. All of these rampages took place in areas described as “gun free” zones. The movie theater in Aurora, CO, the school in Newtown, CT, the military base in Fort Hood, TX, and the Navy Yard in Washington, D.C. All of these places were gun free zones where the shooters took advantage of the guaranteed weakened state of their victims. In fact, if you try to remember back to other infamous mass shootings from Paducah, KY to Columbine, CO the gun free zone is a common thread. However, the media has placed the idea of blaming fun-free zones out of bounds in the political discourse – anyone who considers eliminating these “safe” zones (or un-safe zones depending on your perspective) is immediately labeled an extremist. In fact, a simple Google search of gun free zone returns stories of mass killing and liberal attempts to deflect blame from gun free zones. The gun free zone is one of the liberals’ “hills to die on”, even though it’s other people who are facing death because of them….

    Media reports law enforcement official’s false claim, gunman used AR-15 in attack

    We all make mistakes but I wonder how the particular model was mistaken, how did the law enforcement official get the information in the first place?

    The exact same thing happened with Sandy Hook, a law enforcement official said an AR-15 was used while the ME assertively said that all the wounds were from “the long gun” i. e., the AR-15. When told by a reporter that the AR-15 was recovered from the trunk of the shooters car after the shootings he insisted that that was incorrect, the wounds were from “the long gun”.

    There just happened to be a camera filming the recovery of the AR-15 from the trunk of the car well after the shootings.

    How did the law enforcement official and especially the ME make such a mistake? How did they even know the shooter had an AR-15 since it wasn’t visible until after the event?

    How far will gun control advocates go to get our guns?

    Obama will use this incident to issue an Executive Order further restricting gun rights. You can bank on that…

    REPORT: No AR-15 involved; shotgun, 2 handguns...

    …A U.S. law enforcement official said Monday that gunman Aaron Alexis unleashed a barrage of bullets using an AR-15, a rifle and a semi-automatic handgun. Authorities believed the AR-15 was used for most of the shooting, the official said. The news prompted Sen. Dianne Feinstein, one of the strongest proponents of a ban on assault weapons like the AR-15, to issue a statement the same day asking, "When will enough be enough?"

    However, federal law enforcement sources told CNN Tuesday that authorities have recovered three weapons from the scene of the mass shooting, including one -- a shotgun -- that investigators believe Alexis brought in to the compound. The other two weapons, which sources say were handguns, may have been taken from guards at the Navy complex...

    The AR-15 wasn’t used in either shooting but that doesn’t matter. Here is what they wanted the public to absorb: NY-Daily-News-AR-15

    Idol assignment: “But my teacher said I couldn’t write about God…”

    Fools, we trusted the government when we turned our kids over to them. Now the schools are being used to destroy our nation by corrupting our kids morals and values and by indoctrinating them into communism!

    Ronald Reagan ran on a platform to abolish the Department of Education but did just the opposite. Reagan was evidently still an actor when he was in politics, playing a part.

    See what Charlotte Iserbyl, his Secretary of Education, who also wanted to abolish the department has to say about Reagan’s betayal: Charlotte Iserbyt: The Miseducation of America Part 1-Full – YouTube

    Mom Upset Daughter Wasn’t Allowed To Write About God

    MEMPHIS (CBS CHARLOTTE) – A mother is angry after her daughter wasn’t allowed to write about God for a school assignment.

    According to WREG, Erca Shead says her 10-year-old daughter Erin, a student at Lucy Elementary in Memphis, Tenn. was told she couldn’t use God as an idol and had to pick another idol for the assignment.

    “It was so cute and innocent. She talked about how God created the earth and how she’s doing the best she can,” Shead told the tv-station.  “But my teacher said I couldn’t write about God. She said It has something to do with God and God can’t be my idol,” said Shead about what her daughter told her.

    Shead said her daughter wasn’t allowed to leave the assignment about God at school and that it must go home with her.

    Instead of God, her daughter chose Michael Jackson as an idol and that was accepted.

    The upset mother went to the principal of the school with her concerns Wednesday asking to be showed in the policy where it states her daughter can’t discuss God on paper.

    “How can you tell this baby, that’s a Christian, what she can say and what she can’t say?” Shead added.

    A school spokesman said teachers can’t promote religion, but there is not a policy preventing students from writing assignments about any God or religion.

    It hasn’t been determined what form of action school officials will take since it looks as though the teacher is in the wrong.

    Shead said told the tv-station she is waiting to hear from the principal, “I told the principal this morning, would it be better if she wrote about Ellen Degeneres? Of course there was no comment.”

    Syrian rebels aka Al Qaeda killing Christians in Syria:

    By Mark Hosenball and Phil Stewart

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Secretary of State John Kerry's public assertions that moderate Syrian opposition groups are growing in influence appear to be at odds with estimates by U.S. and European intelligence sources and nongovernmental experts, who say Islamic extremists remain by far the fiercest and best-organized rebel elements.

    At congressional hearings this week, while making the case for President Barack Obama's plan for limited military action in Syria, Kerry asserted that the armed opposition to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad "has increasingly become more defined by its moderation, more defined by the breadth of its membership, and more defined by its adherence to some, you know, democratic process and to an all-inclusive, minority-protecting constitution.

    "And the opposition is getting stronger by the day," Kerry told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Tuesday.

    U.S. and allied intelligence sources and private experts on the Syrian conflict suggest that assessment is optimistic.

    While the radical Islamists among the rebels may not be numerically superior to more moderate fighters, they say, Islamist groups like the al Qaeda-aligned Nusra Front are better organized, armed and trained.

    Kerry's remarks represented a change in tone by the Obama administration, which for more than two years has been wary of sending U.S. arms to the rebels, citing fears they could fall into radical Islamists' hands.

    As recently as late July, at a security conference in Aspen, Colorado, the deputy director of the Pentagon's Defense Intelligence Agency, David Shedd, estimated that there were at least 1,200 different Syrian rebel groups and that Islamic extremists, notably the Nusra Front, were well-placed to expand their influence.

    "Left unchecked, I'm very concerned that the most radical elements will take over larger segments" of the opposition groups, Shedd said. He added that the conflict could drag on anywhere "from many, many months to multiple years" and that a prolonged stalemate could leave open parts of Syria to potential control by radical fighters.

    U.S. and allied intelligence sources said that such assessments have not changed.

    A spokeswoman at the State Department said Kerry's remarks reflect the department's position, adding that the opposition had "taken steps over the past months to coalesce, including electing leaders."

    GREATER NUMBERS, LESS STRENGTH?

    Experts agree that the Nusra Front, an offshoot of the group al Qaeda in Iraq, is among the most effective forces in Syria.

    In a second hearing on Wednesday, Kerry was challenged by Representative Michael McCaul, Texas Republican.

    "Who are the rebel forces? Who are they? I ask that in my briefings all the time," McCaul said. "And every time I get briefed on this it gets worse and worse, because the majority now of these rebel forces - and I say majority now - are radical Islamists pouring in from all over the world."

    Kerry replied: "I just don't agree that a majority are al Qaeda and the bad guys. That's not true. There are about 70,000 to 100,000 oppositionists ... Maybe 15 percent to 25 percent might be in one group or another who are what we would deem to be bad guys.

    "There is a real moderate opposition that exists. General Idriss is running the military arm of that," Kerry continued, referring to General Salim Idriss, head of the rebel Free Syrian Army. Increasingly, he said, Saudi Arabia and other Gulf states are funneling assistance through Idriss.

    Kerry cited an article by Elizabeth O'Bagy, an analyst with the Institute for the Study of War think tank, in which she wrote that Islamic extremist factions are not "spearheading the fight against the Syrian government," but rather that the struggle is being led by "moderate opposition forces."

    Several leading lawmakers, including Senator John McCain, Arizona Republican, also have said there is a viable moderate opposition in Syria that Washington should support.

    U.S. intelligence sources do not dispute that Islamic extremists are in the minority on the battlefield.

    "Most of the groups battling against Assad are composed of Islamist fighters, but only a small minority could accurately be characterized as extremist," one U.S. official said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

    But a second official, who also asked not to be named, said moderate rebels may have lost strength rather than gained it in recent months. Due to their relative lack of weapons and organization, they are beginning to make alliances with better-armed Islamic radicals, whom they see pursuing more effective actions against Assad's forces, the official said.

    Paul Pillar, who retired in 2005 as the U.S. intelligence community's top Middle East analyst, said he believed the Obama Administration was walking a fine line, trying to calculate how to punish Assad's government for allegedly using chemical weapons while not bolstering the strength of religious militant rebels.

    "In a hard-fought civil war, especially one without a single well-organized opposition movement, success goes to the most ruthless and dedicated elements, which also tend to be the most extreme in their views. We are seeing such a process in Syria today," Pillar said.

    An authorization to use military force approved on Wednesday by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee states that U.S. policy in Syria includes "upgrading the lethal and non-lethal military capabilities of vetted elements of Syrian opposition forces."

    'CHOOSING ONE AMONG MANY SIDES'

    Top U.S. intelligence and military officials have recently offered bleak public evaluations of the relative strengths of moderate and religious extremist Syrian rebels.

    In an August 19 letter to Representative Eliot Engel, obtained by Reuters, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Martin Dempsey, warned: "Syria is not about choosing between two sides but rather about choosing one among many sides.

    "It is my belief that the side we choose must be ready to promote their interests and ours when the balance shifts in their favor," Dempsey wrote. "Today they are not."

    A European security official with experience in the region said that extremist rebel factions were so strong and well-organized in the north and west of Syria that they were setting up their own public services and trying to create an Islamic ministate along the Iraqi border.

    By contrast, the official said, more moderate rebel factions predominate in the east of Syria and along its southern border with Jordan but have largely devolved into "gangs" whose leaders are more interested in operating local rackets and enriching themselves than in forming a larger alliance that could more effectively oppose Assad's government.

    "I've heard that there are moderate groups out there we could, in theory, support," said Joshua Foust, a former U.S. intelligence analyst who now writes about foreign policy.

    "But I've heard from those same people and my own contacts within (U.S. intelligence) that the scary people are displacing more and more moderate groups. Basically, the jihadists are setting up governance and community councils while the moderates exhaust themselves doing the heavy fighting," Foust said.

    As anecdotal evidence, Foust cited a recent report that on August 22, four out of five commanders of the moderate Supreme Military Council had threatened to resign and work "with all forces fighting in Syria."

    A video on YouTube shows the rebel commander who made this announcement. He is seated in front of an Islamic extremist flag, next to a bearded cleric clad in the religious dress of a Salafist militant.

    Syrian intrigue: Al Qaeda or Assad? Obama/Kerry or Putin?

    WTF! A community organizer and the world’s most famous anti-war protestor try to make the case for military action against the Syrian government. Waiting for the punch line? No it’s not a joke!

    There is some seriously mysterious things going on in our world today. I’ve heard the saying ‘The enemy of my enemy is my friend’ but could the US actually be siding with Al Qaeda, supplying them with arms and support to topple Assad?

    On 9/11/2001 they supposedly committed the most deadly terrorists attack on our nation in history and became our arch enemy. I think I’m remembering this correctly.

    Since when did Assad become more of an enemy to us than the terrorists Al Qaeda?

    Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth is a website with 2,008 architects & engineers demanding a truly independent investigation

    Can you handle the truth or are you so closed minded that you won’t even look at their concerns? You’ve probably been told that all architects & engineers are in agreement with the government’s version of the collapse of the towers like Al Gore tells you that all scientists agree in man-made global warming. It ain’t true!

    You probably rely on ‘Debunking the 9/11 Myths: Special Report - Popular Mechanics’ to help you keep your eyes closed. Who do you think owns Popular Mechanics? Have you ever heard of the main stream media? Do you think they are not part of the main stream media? Well, why would you trust them to tell you the truth?

    AE911Truth: NIST's misrepresented failure of a single connection leading to WTC7 collapse

    OK, dismiss this group of two thousand and 8 architects and engineers as cooks because they’ve been Alinskyed with the ‘truther’ label.

    You’ll never be able to see the truth with your eyes closed. I can identify with you because I was a Bush worshipper and refused to see anything that was detrimental to my hero.

    That was, until he and Hank Paulson walked up to a bank of mikes one day and said if we didn’t give Hank 700 billion dollars to spend as he saw fit the whole world economy would collapse in 24 hours and subsequently that he was abandoning the free market in that crisis in order to save free market.

    What? He was embracing socialism in this case in order to save the free market? I knew right then that ‘something was rotten in Denmark’. If the free market is the answer how can you save it with the opposite?

    And this all happened just weeks before the presidential elections, thus guaranteeing a republican defeat at the hands of democrat Muslim, Kenyan, communists, Barak Hussein Obama.

    My political world had been turned upside down, now I was willing to open my eyes to things I otherwise never would have. You’ve got to come to that point if America is to remain free!

    By the way, I had already broken from the republican party when they nominated John, ‘songbird’ McCain as their standard bearer. I immediately changed my party affiliation to independent…I voted republican in the election but I told everyone I voted for Palin, not McCain.

    Groundbreaking WTC7 Video Exposé: Independent Investigators Reveal Critical Errors and Omissions in NIST Report

    Written by David Cole and AE911Truth Staff Friday, 23 August 2013 22:03

    WTC7 Video Article 1-260wNIST's claim that the failure of Column 79 led to the entire destruction of WTC7 cannot stand up to even a basic technical analysis

    This project was suggested after a careful study of NIST's Final Report on WTC7 showed that the initiation of the building's collapse was officially blamed on the failure of a single connection where a long-span girder met Column 79 on Floor 13. When we considered that such a huge controversy allegedly began from a single connection failure, we decided to take a closer look at that event.

    What we found was deeply disturbing. We discovered that NIST had misrepresented that connection, and although it later corrected one aspect, it still has not acknowledged its most critical omission. In our opinion, had NIST used the correct connection elements in its analysis, it would have found that the connection could not have failed and thus would have had to postulate a different initiation event.

    To illustrate our findings, we produced four short videos at a technical level that would be understandable by most people. If our findings are accurate, they are strong evidence that a new independent investigation is required to determine why WTC7 fell so rapidly and symmetrically.
