PHILIP GIRALDI : Shaping the Story on Iran

There have been recent reports that Iran has enabled the travel of al-Qaeda leaders to Afghanistan and Pakistan where they will be able to confront and kill American soldiers. If you think you have heard the story before, you have, in another context. In the earlier rendition it was Saddam Hussein who was hand-in-glove with al-Qaeda, helping the group in its nefarious planning to attack the United States and kill Americans. Saddam, who was in reality only a threat to his own people, was on the receiving end of a barrage of fabricated information claiming that he was secretly developing weapons of mass destruction and clandestinely dealing with the terrorists who were responsible for 9/11. Or so the story goes.

Ray McGovern : US, Israel Challenged on Iran

The times may be a-changin’ — at least a bit — with the United States and Israel no longer able to dictate to the rest of the world how crises in the Middle East must be handled, though the new reality has been slow to dawn on Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her neocon friends in Congress and the U.S. media.

They may think they are still in control, still the smart ones looking down at upstarts like the leaders of Turkey and Brazil who had the audacity to ignore U.S. warnings and press ahead with diplomacy to head off a possible new war, this one over Iran.

BREAKING NEWS: Former US Army Colonel and US Diplomat Joins Gaza Flotilla to Break the Israeli Siege/Blockade of Gaza

Colonel Ann Wright said “the Israeli siege of Gaza is illegal and a violation of international law. We demand that the Israeli, Egyptian, United States and European governments end this siege. If the governments will not stop the siege, it is up to the citizens of the world to break it—and that is what we will do!”.

Wolf and his network, CNN, conveniently overlook white, "Christian" terrorism

Wolf Blitzer
CNN

Dear Mr. Blitzer,

Yesterday, you and CNN were all over the story about the conviction of Khalid Ouazzani, an American citizen who donated money to Al Qaeda. While watching, it occurred to me that you do an excellent job of defining what is terrorism and what isn't. Here was a brown guy, a Muslim, who donated $23,000 to Al Qaeda for use overseas. Obviously, he's a terrorist, and you took care to make that clear throughout your broadcast.

There was also a sentancing yesterday you didn't mention. The guilty man's name is Pastor Robert Joos. He's guilty, along with two others, of sending a mail bomb to The Scottsdale City Diversity Office. It was opened by the diversity officer, Don Logan, who sustained major injuries from the explosion. Additionally, one of Joos's congregants, Timothy Coombs, is wanted for the sniper slaying of the officer who arrested Joos--Coombs shot him, pro-life style, through the policeman's kitchen window while he was making a dish of ice cream.

Paul Jay of Real News Network blogs "On reality and bitter truths."

That's the problem with most news these days. Journalists know that people with power publicly say things that are in their interests, and often not what they really think or want. Journalists understand there is an economic and political elite and when they say "for the good of the nation", they mean themselves. That we live in a class society is a fact everyone knows but few journalists acknowledge in their work.

There are great economic and social pressures brought to bear on journalists to go along with the official narrative. We saw this in the extreme in American newsrooms after 9/11 and in coverage of the Iraq war. Dan Rather and Tom Fenton of CBS have both talked about the fear in US newsrooms of being called unpatriotic if they criticized the Bush administration.

Media ignores Goldman Sachs' ties to Corexit dispersant

In a recent New York Times’ article “Less Toxic Dispersants Lose Out in BP Oil Spill Cleanup”, journalist Paula Quinlan questions why BP is using the toxic dispersant Corexit to clean up the oil when twelve other dispersants proved more effective in EPA testing.

Nowhere in the article does it mention that Goldman Sachs, the Blackstone Group and Apollo Management own Nalco, the producer of the 54 % effective, 100% toxic dispersant.

Glenn Beck Hits 2010 Ratings LOW

Beck's Fox News program saw its worst ratings of 2010 Friday, averaging just 1.776 million total viewers. Of course, that's more than his competitors -- MSNBC's "Hardball" (528,000), CNN's "Situation Room" (481,000) and HLN's "Showbiz Tonight" (197,000) -- combined, but it represents a continuation of a trend that began last month.

Scientist Disputes EPA Finding that Carbon Dioxide Poses Threat to Humans

EPA scientists say manmade carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases are contributing to a warming of the global climate -- and as such represent a threat to human welfare. But a leading climatologist says his research indicates that CO2 poses no threat to human welfare at all, and he says the EPA should revisit its findings.

US Answer to Iran Nuclear Swap: Overnight Deal on Sanctions

Ahmet Davutoglu – Turkish Foreign Minister

“What they wanted us to do was give the confidence to Iran to do the swap. We have done our duty,” said Davutoglu, calling the deal an important step for regional and global peace. -Turkish Foreign Minister Davutoglu

In a swift answer to the Iran nuclear fuel deal secured Monday by Turkey and Brazil, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced today that world powers had finalized a package of “strong” new sanctions against Iran.

After months of diplomatic efforts, the US secured support overnight from Russia and China, removing the possibility that the move would be vetoed by the United Nations Security Council. The draft would be circulated later Tuesday to the full council, she said.

Media Fail

Every day, we read and watch reporting that favors sensation over substance. Sideshows dominate the news cycle, while real issues of public concern get drowned out by the noise. What passes for news is too often badly sourced and tainted by commercial interests or political bias.

That's why we're launching an exciting new project called MediaFAIL that lets you expose the worst moments in the media as they happen.

FLASHBACK - CLIMATEGATE - UN climate chief Rajendra Pachauri 'got grants through bogus claims'

The chairman of the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), has used bogus claims that Himalayan glaciers were melting to win grants worth hundreds of thousands of pounds.

Rajendra Pachauri's Energy and Resources Institute (TERI), based in New Delhi, was awarded up to £310,000 by the Carnegie Corporation of New York and the lion's share of a £2.5m EU grant funded by European taxpayers.

PROPAGANDA ALART - NOAA: So far, 2010 warmest ever

Combined global land and ocean surface temperatures for the first four months of 2010 were the warmest on record, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

2010 is far from being the warmest year on record, being far exceeded by the Medieval Warm Period, the Roman Warm Period, and the Holocene Maximum (not to mention the entire Cretaceous).

This is just another classic case of the government lying you into accepting new taxes and convinced you are far too stupid to realize it.

Leading Global Warming Skeptic Lindzen: Time to Abandon the 'Skeptic' Label

Lindzen, speaking at the Heartland Institute’s International Conference on Climate Change on May 17 in Chicago, explained that by assuming the “skeptic” label, the anti-global warming alarmist movement implies the theory is plausible. And according to the M.I.T. professor, it isn’t.

“One suggestion I’d make is we stop accepting the term ‘skeptic,’” Lindzen said. “As far as I can tell, skepticism involves doubts about a plausible proposition. I think current global warming alarm does not represent a plausible proposition.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I prefer "Climate Realist" as a term.

GORDON DUFF: SLAVE AMERICA, HOLOCAUST BY DECEIT

In order to be slaves, we had to be conditioned to become slaves. This was done in increments, causing us to distrust each other, put our reliance on charismatic leaders, all of whom have turned out to be sociopaths, professional liars and thieves, mouthpieces for a very real conspiracy against the American people. Part of that conditioning was confusing Americans to the point where we would blame each other, one imaginary enemy after another, all blamed for our failures, our poverty, our decline while, when we weren’t looking, our economy drained into the foreign bank accounts of the few and our jobs flushed into Mexico, then China.

Franklin Lamb : Why We Petition For Palestinian Civil Rights in Lebanon

“We don’t have to engage in grand, heroic actions to participate in the process of change or resistance. Small acts, when multiplied by many people, can transform the world”

“If we remember those times and places–and there are so many–where people have behaved magnificently, this gives us the energy to act, and at least the possibility of sending this spinning top of a world in a different direction. And if we do act, in however small a way, we don’t have to wait for some grand utopian future. The future is an infinite succession of presents, and to live now as we think human beings should live, in defiance of all that is bad around us, is itself a marvelous victory.” Professor Howard Zinn (1922-2010)

Elvis Costello: Withdraws from two performances scheduled in Israel

It Is After Considerable Contemplation….

I have lately arrived at the decision that I must withdraw from the two performances scheduled in Israel on the 30th of June and the 1st of July.

One lives in hope that music is more than mere noise, filling up idle time, whether intending to elate or lament.

Then there are occasions when merely having your name added to a concert schedule may be interpreted as a political act that resonates more than anything that might be sung and it may be assumed that one has no mind for the suffering of the innocent.

CLIMATEGATE - Kerry, Lieberman Ready to End Senate Careers

A pork and power bill based on global warming propaganda has been a priority for the Obama administration. Given that it has already been established, absolutely, that predictions of catastrophic man-made global warming are a scam, you might question the two senators’ sanity for introducing one. But new benefits to Israel have recently been negotiated, which might be all it takes to make Joe Lieberman happy. And it’s very easy to imagine a chat between John Kerry and Al Gore that ends with Al Gore saying, “Yah, but the money is good.”

Potential cost of Kerry-Lieberman Cap & Tax: $69 - $145 Billion per Year

The Kerry-Lieberman Cap & Tax bill establishes a price collar for CO2 emissions with a floor of $12 per metric ton (increasing annually by 3% + inflation) and ceiling of $25 (increasing annually by 5% + inflation). According to the EPA, US emissions of CO2 in 2009 were 5787 million metric tons. Thus, if the legislation is applied to all US emissions, the cost would be $69 Billion (floor) to $145 Billion (ceiling) annually, increasing ~6 to 8+% each year forever.

IPCC bias exposed yet again

The UK Telegraph reports that Rajendra Pachauri has "defended the use of grey literature" in the IPCC's reports. As long as it supports the IPCC's pre-conceived conclusion of man-made warming, that is. Because whenever grey literature challenges the consensus, the knee-jerk response is "but it isn't peer-reviewed!". Hands up who can spot the hypocrisy there?

Margaret Atwood Cashes In

By Jennifer Matsui

Novelist Margaret Atwood’s decision to travel to Tel Aviv to share a literary prize worth a million dollars has ignited a controversy in which the septuagenarian author and vice-president of the literary human rights organization PEN International has come under fire by Palestinian rights activists. Ms Atwood’s acceptance of the Dan David Prize, whose previous laureates include Al Gore and Tony Blair, is viewed by Ms Atwood’s critics as a betrayal to the ideals she supposedly represents, and an unwitting endorsement of Israel’s race exclusive policies.

Climategate Taxpayer Fraud Investigation Draws Ideological Heat

Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli has used the power of government to seek documents from the University of Virginia regarding its former professor and Climategate figure of "hockey stick" fame, Michael Mann. Mr. Cuccinelli is investigating whether Professor Mann engaged in fraud to obtain taxpayer money to fund his research.

The civil investigation is making some people sweat, and raised howls of protest from sources ranging from the liberal Washington Post to the libertarian Reason. Academicians are protesting it as a threat to academic liberty. Daniel Lashof, director of the Natural Resources Defense Council's Climate Center, penned a letter calling Cuccinelli's actions "political harassment of climate scientist Michael Mann."

The Media Is Ignoring Kerry’s Cap-and-Trade

After 7 months of negotiations, Senators John Kerry and Joseph Lieberman last week unveiled a major climate bill to a chorus of…silence. On the day after the rollout, the American Power Act failed to make the front page of a single paper with a national scope. The Sunday political talkies also ignored the bill. I didn’t hear a single mention of the American Power Act on Fox News Sunday, ABC’s This Week, NBC’s Meet the Press, the McLaughlin Group, or the Chris Matthews Show.

What gives? The mainstream media LOVES global warming as an issue, because it’s divisive and it’s yellow. So why would they ignore it? The only explanation I can think of is that the media believes the bill is dead.

Gordon Duff: Can 1% Stop The Global Criminal Syndicate?

CAN A REAL GLOBALISM BASED ON TRUTH AND HONOR SAVE THE WORLD?

I was asked during an interview on Al Jazeera the question that every Muslim lives with every day, “How can a small country like Israel control America.” My answer was simple. Imagine a friend comes to you screaming, “Someone stole my house!” You ask him what happened. His response; “I put my house up for sale, I asked $200,000 dollars. A man came to the door and said he wanted my house. He gave me $200,000 bucks and now I have no home.”

“There is no ground left for more sanctions or pressure on Iran”

by Robert Naiman, Policy Director of Just Foreign Policy (source: Huffington Post)

If I were in Washington this morning, I would run down Pennsylvania Avenue from the White House to Congress with a big Brazilian flag, as the young Brazilians run down the Avenida Paulista in Sao Paulo during the the “football” match, shouting “Gollllllll!”

Because with the news this morning that Iran has agreed to ship most of its enriched uranium to Turkey, in a nuclear fuel swap deal reached in talks with Brazil and Turkey that could “deflate a U.S.-led push” for new sanctions against Iran, the President of Brazil has scored a goal against the neocons in the West who want to gin up confrontation with Iran towards a future military conflict.

Iran Announces Breakthrough Nuclear Exchange Deal

By Juan Cole

Veteran Iran observer Borzou Daragahi reports on the agreement just announced by Iran and Turkey on the disposition of Iran’s stockpile of low-enriched uranium.

Under the deal, according to the Iranian spokesman, “After a final agreement is signed between Iran and the Vienna group, our fuel will be shipped to Turkey under the supervision of Iran and the IAEA . . .” “Then we will dispatch 1,200 kilograms [2,640 pounds] of 3.5% enriched uranium to Turkey to be exchanged for 120 kilograms [264 pounds] of 20% enriched uranium from the Vienna group.” The Vienna group is the permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany.

Climate Change Has No Scientific Consensus

Oreskes reviewed 928 abstracts from peer-reviewed research papers and determined that more than 75 per cent of scientists either explicitly or implicitly accept that Earth’s climate is being affected by human activities. Thus the ‘scientific consensus’ claim was born.

However, according to a peer-reviewed analysis of Oreskes by Dr. Benny Peiser, a world-renowned expert on ‘neo-catastrophism,’ it appears the claims by Oreskes are false. Dr. Peiser uncovered from the 928 abstracts that; “just over a dozen explicitly endorse the ‘consensus’ while the vast majority of abstracts do not mention anthropogenic global warming.” Moreover, the term ‘catastrophic warming’ appears nowhere in any of the papers.

Special Nakba Day show! on Truth Jihad Radio

Editors Note: Those who might be turned off by the word “JIHAD” thanks to the Zionist propaganda war against the noble word “jihad” which is an extreme example of Islamophobic bigotry; if one considers how they have kidnapped perfectly rational English words like “holocaust” and anti-Semite” and what they have done with them, what chance do you think anyone would have with trying to untangle the distortion in which they have ensnared foreign words like “Jihad?”

Jihad, means struggle — the struggle to become a better person and to make the world a better place.

Crisis in New Zealand climatology

The official archivist of New Zealand’s climate records, the National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research (NIWA), offers top billing to its 147-year-old national mean temperature series (the “NIWA Seven-station Series” or NSS). This series shows that New Zealand experienced a twentieth-century warming trend of 0.92°C.

The official temperature record is wrong. The instrumental raw data correctly show that New Zealand average temperatures have remained remarkably steady at 12.6°C +/- 0.5°C for a century and a half. NIWA’s doctoring of that data is indefensible.

(Video) George W. Bush's Inaction On 9/11

A short production of news clips detailing George W. Bush's 9/11 inaction, including his post-attack foot dragging on establishing an independent investigation into the worst attack ever on United States soil.

Bush was clearly negligent in his duty on 9/11, not only as President, but also as our Commander in Chief. His inaction alone is reason enough to re-open the 9/11 investigation. Throw in the fact that Donald Rumsfeld was not at his post directing a defense for this country, and that Dick Cheney tracked the Pentagon attack "vehicle" from over 50 miles out and still did not shoot the object down, and you have negligence and dereliction of duty at the highest levels of the U.S. government.

Don't just ask for a new investigation. Ask for a real 9/11 investigation.

Israel’s Intimidation Tactics Won’t Stop Us: First Ship Sets Sail for Gaza!

This past week reports from Israel have indicated that the Israeli authorities will not allow the Freedom Flotilla to reach Gaza with its cargo of much-needed reconstruction material, medical equipment, and school supplies. According to Israeli news sources, clear orders have been issued to prevent the ships from reaching Gaza, even if this necessitates military violence.

Mind Control Theories and Techniques used by Mass Media

In the 1958 preface for A Brave New World, Aldous Huxley paints a rather grim portrait of society. He believes it is controlled by an "impersonal force", a ruling elite, which manipulates the population using various methods.

"Impersonal forces over which we have almost no control seem to be pushing us all in the direction of the Brave New Worldian nightmare; and this impersonal pushing is being consciously accelerated by representatives of commercial and political organizations who have developed a number of new techniques for manipulating, in the interest of some minority, the thoughts and feelings of the masses." - Aldous Huxley, Preface to A Brave New World

His bleak outlook is not a simple hypothesis or a paranoid delusion. It is a documented fact, present in the world's most important studies on mass media. Here are some of them:

Elena Kagan and the Supreme Court: A Barnyard Smell in Chicago, Harvard and Washington

By James Petras

The issue of the composition of the US Supreme Court is increasingly crucial for all Americans, who are horrified by Israel’s devastation of Gaza, its threats to launch a nuclear attack on Iran and its Fifth Column’s efforts to drag us into a third war in ten years.

President Obama has nominated Elena Kagan for Justice of the United States Supreme Court on the basis of an academic publication record, which might give her a fighting chance for tenure at a first rate correspondence law school in the Texas Panhandle.

Climate Research From Briffa, Esper, Jones, Moberg & Mann All Confirm The Extreme Medieval Warming

During U.S. Senate testimony (2005), evidence was presented that revealed multiple studies supporting a consensus that the Medieval Period experienced extreme warming that matches or exceeds any modern, post-1970's warming.

Tree ring circus

Are academics some special subspecies of hu- mans who are be- yond suspicion and above the law? That's the ques- tion being played out in a drama between Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli and the dead-end defenders of global warming's poster junk scientist, Michael Mann.

Mr. Cuccinelli is under assault by the climate-alarmist brigades for launching an investigation into whether any fraud against taxpayers occurred with respect to Mr. Mann's hiring by the University of Virginia and his receipt of government grants. Mr. Cuccinelli recently sent the university a civil investigative demand requesting e-mails and other documents pertaining to Mr. Mann.

"Climategate" & Leaked Emails: Scientists that should be Jailed

Among some of the facts that came out: These Scientists urged each other 'to present a "unified" view on their theory of man-made climate change, calling it an important "common cause." They also advised each other on how to adjust data so it wouldn't compromise their hypothesis, discussed ways to keep opposing views out of leading Science journals, and gave tips on how to "hide the decline" of temperature in certain inconvenient data.

CLIMATEGATE - Antarctica: It's Not Melting & Temperature Increase Is Zilch - There's No CO2 Impact

The AGW hypothesis states that human CO2 emissions will cause the world to warm, with the the globe's polar areas being especially vulnerable to rapid warming, due to CO2. Without any hesitation, not waiting for any actual empirical evidence, global-warming scientists and activists predicted that Antarctica will melt, causing incredible sea level increases.

It has not come true, and is not about to happen based on real world, scientific reality.

Ye Olde Newsweek

My first job in journalism was at the now-foundering Newsweek magazine, which the Washington Post Co. has put up for sale. This was — gasp — more than 30 years ago, and my memories are grossly irrelevant to anything that has happened there since, say, 1980.

Big Three Nets' Evening News Dives Deepen

Five weeks ago (covered at NewsBusters; at BizzyBlog), the Big Three Networks' combined evening news audiences dropped to below 20 million .

Three weeks ago (at NewsBusters; at BizzyBlog), their combined audience came in at 19.61 million, down over 12% from the previous year.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

But the blogs' readership continues to soar. Proof that nobody likes a liar. Maybe that is why CNN was spending so much time on the "MISS USA poses in lingerie" and the "Playboy's first 3D Centerfold" stories yesterday. Sex sells, and that is about all that ABCNNBBCBS have left to lure in an audience.

anti-Semitism

(LONDON) - Talking about anti-Semitism, and the accusation of anti-Semitism, is to many people a very sensitive issue. Nevertheless, I feel the need to highlight some points: As a Palestinian and as a Muslim, with first hand experience of racism, whether here in UK or in occupied Palestine.

I do understand what it means to be subjugated to it; thus, I deeply empathise with those who suffer from the menace of racism and discrimination, those who are abused verbally, physically, emotionally, or otherwise for no other reason than the fact that they are “different”.

John Greyson : Hey Elton Cancel Your Concert in Israel

HEY ELTON Cancel Your Concert in Israel

by Canadian filmmaker John Greyson

Palestinian civil society has called on Elton John to respect their boycott
call and cancel his June 17th concert in Tel Aviv. If he does so, he’ll be
joining Santana and Gil-Scott Heron, who recently cancelled their spring
concerts in Israel. This video suggests six reasons why Elton should join
the BDS (boycott, divestment, sanctions) movement.

The Untold Story of the Zionist intent to turn Palestine into a Jewish State

(Based on classified documents from the Jewish Agency and its affiliated organizations seized by the British Mandate Police, materials that confirm that the Zionist controlled Jewish community intended to remove the Arab inhabitants of Palestine from their land and make the whole of Mandate Palestine a Jewish State, an intent that continues to the present day as the new book, The Plight of the Palestinians: a Long History of Destruction, available at Macmillan.com, demonstrates.)

The 2010 Review Conference of the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons is underway at UN Headquarters in New York. A working paper calls for a nuclear-free Middle East. It would require member states of the NPT to “disclose in their national reports on the implementation of the resolution on the Middle East all information available to them on the nature and scope of Israeli nuclear facilities and activities, including information pertaining to previous nuclear transfers to Israel.” On May 6, 2010, the Government Accountability Office (formerly known as the General Accounting Office) released the previously secret 1978 report “Nuclear Diversion in the U.S.? 13 Years of Contradiction and Confusion” [.pdf].

'ManBearPig is real!' declare top climate scientists. 'And to prove it here's a photo-shopped image we found on the internet of a polar bear on a melting ice floe.'

A polar bear managed to get on one of the last ice floes floating in the Arctic sea. Due to global warming the natural environment of the polar bear in the Arctic has changed a lot. The Arctic sea has much less ice than it had some years ago. (This images is a photoshop design. Polarbear, ice floe, ocean and sky are real, they were just not together in the way they are now)

FLASHBACK - Bomb-Making Factory Found in Brooklyn

A Jewish Brooklyn man has pleaded not guilty to charges of anti-Semitic hate crimes. Police arrested Ivan Ivanov Monday after discovering pipe bombs and other weapons at his home. Ivanov, who had long been suspected of a September spree of spray-painting anti-Semitic graffiti on houses, cars, playgrounds and two synagogues in his Brooklyn Heights neighborhood, implicated himself in the graffiti incidents during a search of his home Sunday and was arrested....

The New York Times reported that Ivanov told police that he was Italian by birth, raised in Bulgaria and trained by the Mossad, Israel's intelligence agency.

Did "left-wing media" trigger the Times Square Bomber?

What's good for the goose is good for the gander, as they say. If it is legitimate for the MSM to speculate on whether conservative talk radio and Fox News could inflame an unstable right-wing "nut case" into a violent act, then the opposite question can be posed as well. Was would-be Times Square bomber Faisal Shahzad "radicalized" by the incessant drumbeat of hatred toward George W. Bush by CBS, ABC, NBC, CNN, MSNBC and left-wing talk radio for the years during which Shahzad was a US resident?

CLIMATEGATE - The World Turned Upside Down

Climate change is the hot topic of the day, and Phillips methodically charts the rise of the "movement." A core problem is that science has given way to ideology. The scientific method has been dispensed with -- or abused -- to serve the myth of anthropogenic (man-made) warming (AGW). There is more than a taint of ideology involved: Many of the advocates of AGW view the Western world and its way of living as the culprits. Computer models are built in an almost backwards fashion: The goal is to show evidence of AGW, and the "scientists" go to work to produce such a result. When even these models fail to show what advocates want, the data and interpretations are "fudged" to bring about the desired result.

Scientists Speak Out Against Climate Change Deniers' McCarthy-Like Threats

In a letter published in the journal Science, more than 250 members of the US National Academy of Sciences, including 11 Nobel Prize laureates, condemned the increase in "political assaults" on scientists who argue greenhouse gas emissions are warming the planet.

The 'climategate' scandal and mistakes by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) have led to a surge in attacks on climate scientists around the world.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"They are being mean to us, mommy!!!"

(Ahem)

The global warming cult, unable to support their hysterical claims, is trying to pull the debate out of science and turn it into a political one, in that we should all go along with AGW and carbon taxes because it is the "polite" thing to do!

Jeremy Scahill is a Douche Bag

Once the truth comes out about 9-11, people are going to eventually start asking why all our “serious” investigative journalists like… Jeremy Scahill… missed something so goddamned obvious.

Not only did they miss it, they made up shit to attack people who were actually trying to investigate it; trying to tell people.

So one day, when this does all come out, after all the confessions and the accusations and the trials, one day the attention of the angry population will eventually turn to our “serious” investigative journalists like Goodman, like Taibbi, like … Scahill…

… and they will be asked to account for how they chose their careers and their “respectability” over the Truth. A truth I know they feel in their hearts.

CLIMATEGATE - Jones feels not so unusually hot, after all

Now even Climategate’s Phil Jones, of the infamous Climatic Research Unit, concedes this warm period isn’t so unprecedented after all. CO2 Science reports on his latest joint paper:

In the words of the seven scientists, “temperatures during the warmest intervals of the Medieval Warm Period,” which they defined as occurring some 900 to 1300 years ago, “were as warm as or slightly warmer than present day Greenland temperatures.”

Climate Policies Based on Distorted Temperatures by Dr. Tim Ball

Government employees doing research almost guarantees a compromise with science. Worse, they have the entire power of government to impose their views. It is at the heart of the problems with climate science because Maurice Strong promoted the bad science through the bureaucracies of the UN and then weather agencies in every country. Instead of disproving the Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) hypothesis following normal scientific procedure they worked to prove it. The conference tells the story. It was more about dealing with government policies than with the validity of the science on which those policies were based.

Right Back At Ya, “Warmists”

According to the Ottawa Citizen, more than 250 “prominent scientists”, including 11 Nobel laureates, are calling on people to cease personal political attacks and focus on the facts. For a moment, I welcomed the idea of ending the “politicizing” of climate change, and the personal attacks that come with not accepting the gospel of anthropogenic climate change.

And then I realized they didn’t mean an end to all political attacks. Just the ones directed at them.

So the 250 prominent scientists have turned around and called those who disagree with them “deniers”, a loaded term that is associative with those who disbelieve in the historical evidence of a holocaust against the Jews. Delightful company to be in, I’m sure.

Fox News Caught Aggregating Others Copyrighted Photographs... Something Murdoch Insists Is Illegal

Rupert Murdoch and the top execs at News Corp. keep insisting that sites that aggregate content from elsewhere on the internet are "stealing." Of course, as we've noted, News Corp. has an awful lot of sites that rely on aggregating content from elsewhere -- so apparently it's only legit when Murdoch does it himself. Murdoch, of course, has also famously claimed that fair use is a doctrine that courts would "bar altogether" if challenged in the courts -- but at the same time, his own company regularly claims "fair use" to defend its own actions.

That's generally called hypocrisy.
