"Lomborg: Just Kidding. We Do Need Climate Action Now" "Bjørn Lomborg: $100bn a year needed to fight climate change" Convenient how this asshole changes his mind right after his bullshit was used to derail climate change action.
Hilarious Zunes Zio-propaganda. Some of the commentators get it right.
"How To Kill Goyim And Influence People: Leading Israeli Rabbis Defend Manual for For Killing Non-Jews" You can find fruitcakes in every religion making outrageously violent racist statements. However, the Jewish case is different. For one thing, Jewish religious writing contains more explicitly violent hatred against other groups. More importantly, Israel is a military dictatorship run by generals who take religious direction from the settler movement, and these Jewish fruitcakes are leaders of the settler movement. The Jewish crazies have inspired real violence, and their words could lead to massive genocide. It is not improper or bigoted to point out the direct connection between Jewish religious writing and Israeli state violence, particularly as the connection is becoming more dangerous.

"Johann Hari: How much proof do the global warming deniers need?":
"Thank God man-made global warming was proven to be a hoax. Just imagine what the world might have looked like now if those conspiring scientists had been telling the truth. No doubt Nasa would be telling us that this year is now the hottest since humans began keeping records. The weather satellites would show that even when heat from the sun significantly dipped earlier this year, the world still got hotter. Russia's vast forests would be burning to the ground in the fiercest drought they have ever seen, turning the air black in Moscow, killing 15,000 people, and forcing foreign embassies to evacuate. Because warm air holds more water vapour, the world's storms would be hugely increasing in intensity and violence – drowning one fifth of Pakistan, and causing giant mudslides in China.
The world's ice sheets would be sloughing off massive melting chunks four times the size of Manhattan. The cost of bread would be soaring across the world as heat shrivelled the wheat crops. The increased carbon dioxide in the atmosphere would be fizzing into the oceans, making them more acidic and so killing 40 per cent of the phytoplankton that make up the irreplaceable base of the oceanic food chain. The denialists would be conceding at last that everything the climate scientists said would happen – with their pesky graphs and studies and computers – came to pass.
This is all happening today, except for that final stubborn step. It's hard to pin any one event on man-made global warming: there were occasional freak weather events before we started altering the atmosphere, and on their own, any of these events could be just another example. But they are, cumulatively, part of a plain pattern where extreme weather is occurring "with greater frequency and in many cases with greater intensity" as the temperature soars, as the US National Climatic Data Centre puts it. This is exactly what climate scientists have been warning us man-made global warming will look like, to the letter. Ashen-faced, they add that all this is coming after less than one degree of global warming since the Industrial Revolution. We are revving up for as much as five degrees more this century.""In Shocking News, Climate Scientist Revealed to Not Be Evil Shyster"

- From Justin Raimondo:
"The big problem for the Smear Brigade, quite aside from the swift retraction of the rape charges, is this story stinks to high heaven. So these two women just happened to meet up at one of Assange’s lectures, and – in the course of casual conversation – realized they’d both been raped by this monster. I don’t know how many rape victims attend lectures by their assaulters, but the number is probably very low. More indications the whole thing is a set up: the Guardian reports that “the preliminary allegation, made on the Friday night, and not further investigated at that stage, was apparently leaked by police to a tabloid in Stockholm, which published dramatic claims on Saturday morning that Assange was to be arrested.”"
- One of the women said: "The charges against Assange is of course not orchestrated by either the Pentagon or anyone else. The responsibility for what happened to me and the other girl is held by a man with a skew perception of women who do not take no for an answer." That's called protesting too much, and with peculiar specific detail.
- As far as I can tell, the current state of the story is that a two-count rape arrest warrant arose out of the fact that Assange doesn't like to use condoms with his groupies.
- The Swedish prosecutors office did not follow its protocol in not releasing names. Somehow, the media found out about this and the prosecutor in question, against standard procedure, confirmed Assange's name.
Hey, I don't want to tell Swedish authorities how to do their jobs, but they might want to check the bank accounts of those in question - complainants and prosecutor - looking for big wire transfers from L-a-n-g-l-e-y, V-i-r-g-i-n-i-a.
Coming at a time when the U. S. government has indicated it is going after WikiLeaks and Assange, and at a time when Assange is threatening more leaks, there is not the tiniest doubt who is behind this. There was talk of assassinating him, but that would just make Assange a martyr, and add infinite credibility to WikiLeaks, while doing nothing to staunch the leaks of embarrassing information. A phony rape case is much more clever, undermining the credibility of both Assange and WikiLeaks. It is too bad for the Americans that the execution of the plot was so incompetent.

". . . Where would my clients, who are not poor, who make $30,000 to $50,000 a year and yet keep coming up short, maybe by $100, $200 a month, really be better off?and:
That’s easy: Europe. I can answer that as their lawyer, the way a doctor could answer about their health. The bottom two-thirds of America would be better off in Europe. I mean the people who have not had a raise (an hourly raise in real dollars) in maybe 40 years, and who do not even have a 401(k), nothing but Social Security, and either have no health insurance or pay deductibles of $2,000 or more. Sure, they’d be better off in Europe. When unemployed, they’d certainly be better off in Europe. Over there, even single men can get on welfare. And in much of Europe, contrary to what we hear, unemployment is much lower than over here.
One of the ways Europe is set up for the bourgeois - including, perhaps, many readers of this magazine - is the very fact that it is also set up for people who make $50,000 or below. Since it’s set up for these people too, the bourgeois - me, maybe you - get the political cover to have it set up for them. What the people-in-the-unions get, people-from-the-good-schools also get. (And indeed, in Europe people-in-the-unions are often people-from-the-good-schools.) They get the six weeks of vacation each year and the pension like a golden parachute. And the higher up we are in terms of income, the more valuable these things are. In America, they don’t tell us: Social democracy, or socialism, or whatever Europe has, pays off biggest for people in the upper middle class, those just below the top."
"In 2005, the real hourly wage for production workers in America was approximately 8 percent lower than it was in 1973, while our national output (productivity) per hour is 55 percent higher. So it's dubious whether most Americans have gained even a penny in purchasing power since 1989. And even skewed by all this U.S-type inequality, we understate what Europeans at the "middling" level are able to get for free, i.e., publicly provided goods like education, healthcare, cities like banks of violets. Even apart from the grotesque U.S. social inequality, the net purchasing power disparity after we toss in the public goods is not so great.
Or maybe I mean this: Europe has a kind of invisible GDP, which we don't know how to count. The ambitious European who might want to work 2,300 hours may be the luckiest to escape his or her fate under the U.S. model. When that person has 700 more hours a year, to learn an extra language, to go to Sri Lanka, or just to read, it's that high achiever who may be best off under the European model.
It's no accident that the social democracies - Sweden, France and Germany, who kept on paying high wages - now have more industry than the United States or the UK. During the '70s, '80s and '90s, the Anglo-Americans, the neoliberals, The Economist crowd, and the press generally, would taunt the social democrats in Europe: "You'd better break the unions." That's the way to save your industry.
Indeed, that's what the United States and the UK did: They smashed the unions, in the belief that they had to compete on cost. The result? They quickly ended up wrecking their industrial base. But Germany, Sweden and France ignored the advice of the Anglo-Americans, the Financial Times elite, the banking industry: Contrary to what they were told to do, they did not wreck their unions.
And it was the high labor cost that pushed those countries into making higher "value-added" things. Where is Germany competitive? It's in high-end, precision machinery, made by people with the highest skills. It's in engineering services."

Lynndie England in Israel. "The most beautiful time of my life" Isn't that something like what the concentration camp guard says?
One of the great advantages of still having Israel around is that it is a living museum of Western totalitarianism. White people just don't get a chance to see how it was to live in Stalinist Russia or Nazi Germany, but thanks to the Jews, anybody can get a taste (though not, of course, anything like the day-to-day horror the Jews impose on the people from whom they stole the land).

"Harvard rebalances endowment portfolio" This entire story is weird. It appears that Harvard has in fact sold almost all its Israeli holdings. This is probably as the financial analysts have come to the same conclusion I have, that Israel, and the Israeli stock market, is going to collapse soon after it decides to illegally attack Lebanon. Was the original story an attempt to move the Lobby to force Harvard to repurchase its Israeli holdings?

Speaking of assholes, the concentration camp guard interviews the cancer patient, advocating genocide. The cancer patient has trouble with a mythical deity, but has no trouble calling for the death of tens of thousands of people, and the destruction of much of the world's economy, all based on a mythical nuclear arms program. I wonder how many cancer deaths a nuclear attack on Iran would cause.

"Did Ben Gurion sell his soul to Satan?" Both Germany and Israel are hiding the documents on the Eichmann kidnapping, for the unlikely reason that they reveal the German role in the Israeli nuclear bomb program. The kidnapping of Eichmann may have been an attempt to undermine the Israeli relationship with Germany, and it appears Israel may have allowed some Nazi-era war criminals to remain unprosecuted in order to keep the nuclear relationship alive with the West Germans.

"Alleged Mossad spy granted bail in Germany, 'can return to Israel if he wants'" Just what hold do the Jews have over the German government? Are they blackmailing Merkel with info about her Stasi past? Once a government demonstrates that it does not care how its passports are misused, those passports start to become suspect. Every German travelling in a foreign country will now be less secure.

A real investigation could never come close to the truth without destroying the entire power structure.
"Why are the Israelis Telling Their ‘Secret’ Iran Attack Plans to Jeffrey Goldberg?" One of the main tricks of the Jews is to claim that war is 'inevitable', thus prompting the Americans to go ahead with it just to get it over with. In the case of the attack on Iran desired by the Jews, the extra lie is to claim that Israel is going to attack by itself, which will require American intervention to clean up the mess, so the Americans might as well attack first to avoid the extra problems. Of course, this is another vile Jewish trick - and there is no one more vile than the concentration camp guard - as Israel has neither the ability nor the will to attack Iran (that's why trickery is required to fool the Americans into doing it!). It is interesting that Goldberg is so transparent in his blood-pouring-from-the-fangs motives that nobody is fooled.

"When Admiral Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the highest-ranking American officer, was asked recently on NBC’s Meet The Press whether the United States has a military plan for an attack on Iran, he replied simply: “We do.”"and:
"The U.S. could “win” by dropping hundreds of nuclear weapons on Iran’s military bases, nuclear facilities and industrial centres (i.e. cities) and killing five to 10 million people, but short of that, nothing works."and:
"It can bomb Iran’s nuclear sites and military installations to its heart’s content, but everything it destroys can be rebuilt in a few years. And there is no way that the United States could actually invade Iran.The wargaming means the Americans will never attack Iran, and, despite all the bluff and bluster (speaking of the concentration camp guard, you'll get a laugh if you read the comments about his interview with Hitchens here), the Jews haven't the military capability to attack Iran. Ain't gonna happen. It is time for some face-to-face high-level talks. Right-after the Jews get their jackboots off Obama's neck in November.
There are some 80 million people in Iran, and although many of them don’t like the present regime they are almost all fervent patriots who would resist a foreign invasion. Iran is a mountainous country, and very big: four times the size of Iraq. The Iranian army currently numbers about 450,000 men, slightly smaller than the U.S. Army—but unlike the U.S. Army, it does not have its troops scattered across literally dozens of countries.
If the White House were to propose anything larger than minor military incursions along Iran’s south coast, senior American generals would resign in protest. Without the option of a land war, the only lever the United States would have on Iranian policy is the threat of yet more bombs—but if they aren’t nuclear, then they aren’t very persuasive. Whereas Iran would have lots of options for bringing pressure on the United States.
Just stopping Iran’s own oil exports would drive the oil price sky-high in a tight market: Iran accounts for around seven percent of internationally traded oil. But it could also block another 40 percent of global oil exports just by sinking tankers coming from Iraq, Saudi Arabia, and the other Arab Gulf states with its lethal Noor anti-ship missiles.
The Noor anti-ship missile is a locally built version of the Chinese YJ-82. It has a 200-km range, enough to cover all the major choke points in the Gulf. It flies at twice the speed of sound just metres above the sea’s surface, and it has a tiny radar profile. Its single-shot kill probability has been put as high as 98 percent.
Iran’s mountainous coastline extends along the whole northern side of the Gulf, and these missiles have easily concealed mobile launchers. They would sink tankers with ease, and in a few days insurance rates for tankers planning to enter the Gulf would become prohibitive, effectively shutting down the region’s oil exports completely.
Meanwhile Iran would start supplying modern surface-to-air missiles to the Taliban in Afghanistan, and that would soon shut down the U.S. military effort there. (It was the arrival of U.S.-supplied Stinger missiles in Afghanistan in the late 1980s that drove Russian helicopters from the sky and ultimately doomed the whole Soviet intervention there.)
Iranian ballistic missiles would strike U.S. bases on the southern (Arab) side of the Gulf, and Iran’s Hezbollah allies in Beirut would start dropping missiles on Israel. The United States would have no options for escalation other than the nuclear one, and pressure on it to stop the war would mount by the day as the world’s industries and transport ground to a halt.
The end would be an embarrassing retreat by the United States, and the definitive establishment of Iran as the dominant power of the Gulf region. That was the outcome of every wargame the Pentagon played, and Mike Mullen knows it. So there is a plan for an attack on Iran, but he would probably rather resign than put it into action. It is all bluff. It always was."

- "Report: U.S. downgrades Saudi arms deal over Israeli concerns" (my emphasis in red):
"According to the Wall Street Journal report, the Obama administration in fact agreed to sell advanced F-15 fighter jets to the Saudis, however excluding long-range weapons systems as well as other components in order to quiet Israel's concerns.
However, despite the reported Israeli concerns over the weapons deal, U.S. officials speaking to the Wall Street Journal made it clear that Washington did not make changes to appease Israel.
"It's not that Barak swoops into town, we suddenly make a bunch of concessions that the Israelis never knew about before, and they're assuaged," the official said. "There were no refinements, no changes.""
It is just a coincidence that the changes made entirely by the American slaves matched exactly those demanded by their Jewish masters.

"Mysterious and possibly nefarious trading algorithms are operating every minute of every day in the nation's stock exchanges.
What they do doesn't show up in Google Finance, let alone in the pages of the Wall Street Journal. No one really knows how they operate or why. But over the past few weeks, Nanex, a data services firm has dragged some of the odder algorithm specimens into the light.
The trading bots visualized in the stock charts in this story aren't doing anything that could be construed to help the market. Unknown entities for unknown reasons are sending thousands of orders a second through the electronic stock exchanges with no intent to actually trade. Often, the buy or sell prices that they are offering are so far from the market price that there's no way they'd ever be part of a trade. The bots sketch out odd patterns with their orders, leaving patterns in the data that are largely invisible to market participants
In fact, it's hard to figure out exactly what they're up to or gauge their impact. Are they doing something illicit? If so, what? Or do the patterns emerge spontaneously, a kind of mechanical accident? If so, why? No matter what the answers to these questions turn out to be, we're witnessing a market phenomenon that is not easily explained. And it's really bizarre."

- The tree was clearly on the Lebanese side of the fence, and it is an utter provocation for Israel to start to trim it, without asking permission or assistance from even the UN officials in the area. Israel knew that the Lebanese wouldn't know whose tree it was. In fact, the Israeli troops/arborists probably assumed this was a Lebanese tree, and may have just got lucky.
- The UN can't be counted on to be a fair judge of geography, having been browbeaten by the slur for so long it defers to the Jews at every chance.
- The border itself is iffy, having been imposed on the Lebanese by the Jew Albright against their objections (Lebanon says the tree was south of the Blue Line but disputes the placement of the Blue Line in that area).
- This Israeli provocation is one of an ongoing series of provocations, obviously intended to provoke a Hezbollah rocket thus leading to a new Israeli land-stealing war.
Needless to say, the Jews will continue the provocations.
Debka explained the helicopter crash in Romania as practice for the attack on Iran. Since Debka always lies we see yet another use for 'Iran talk', in this case covering up for the Israeli planned attack on Lebanon (the crashed helicopter was practicing for searching for Hezbollah rocket emplacements). If Hezbollah indeed releases proof that it was Israel that assassinated Hariri - not that any proof were needed - an attack on Lebanon would also help change the subject (changing the subject is becoming a Jewish obsession). Hezbollah is still exercising maximum restraint, having not taken the pruning bait.
This series of increasing provocations are interesting from the point of view of internal Israeli politics. Israel is a pure military dictatorship, run by generals who are in turn run by the settler movement. Nevertheless, the State likes to maintain a veneer of 'democracy', and the current understanding is that Israel won't provoke any rocket counterattacks until the (useless) Iron Dome is finished to purport to protect the lives of Israeli civilians. There must be a fissure amongst the Israeli generals, with some ready to start a war in a state of Domelessness.

Detailed description of the day-to-day fuckupery that is the American attack on Afghanistan.
The usual: somebody fires a rocket into Israel, a provocation which Hamas has nothing to do with and is in fact trying to stop (in this case, the rocket appears to have been fired by a group more fundamentalist than Hamas), so Israel commits another war crime with yet another greatly disproportional attack on civilians (this time, unusually, they accidentally killed a member of Hamas).
Background on the cheering audience bused in to watch the ethnic cleansing by Israel of the Bedouin village of al-Arakib. Every time I think the Jews couldn't be any worse, they up the ante.

Lost history? The Jews are making sure that the most dangerous history stays lost (my emphasis in red):
"About two weeks ago, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu signed regulations restricting access to government archives. As Barak Ravid revealed yesterday in Haaretz, 50-year-old materials that were to be opened to the public for historical study will now remain classified for two more decades."and:
"The information that remains classified deals, among other things, with the expulsions and massacres of Arabs in the War of Independence, Mossad operations in foreign countries, surveillance of opposition politicians by the Shin Bet security service in the 1950s and the establishment of the Biological Research Institute in Nes Tziona and the Nuclear Research Center in Dimona.Lawrence Davidson (my emphasis in red; I don't think Morris so much as recanted as learned to revel in it):
The material was not accessible to the public previously, and the new regulations merely put a retroactive stamp of legality on the closure of the archives, which until now was sealed illegally."
"A number of years ago Israel applied its law that required the government archives to be opened for public review and research following a thirty year waiting period for political affairs and fifty years for military affairs. This brought many of the government documents referring to seminal years of 1947 and 1948 into the open. The result was a serious, evidence based, revision of the founding legends of Israel. In other words, the state lost momentary control of its own history. The result undermined the nation’s mythic self-image amongst observers outside of Israel and caused significant unease within the country. So powerful was the reaction of the elites against this revised interpretation of the past that the “new historians” who brought it forth are now either teaching abroad or have, as in the case of Benny Morris, recanted.and:
In the interim things have only gotten worse for the Zionist defenders of the idealized Israel. Multiple invasions of Lebanon and the essentially defenseless Palestinian cities and towns, the slaughter of the innocent, the reduction of Gaza to an open air prison, the on-going confiscation of land and property in the Occupied Territories, rampant settler violence, and the repeated election of racist governments have resulted in a worldwide civil society effort to isolate Israel and induce it to reform itself in the same manner as South Africa. Except in the United States, Israel’s claim to act only in self-defense is not seen as credible and the accusation that all who disagree are anti-Semites not taken seriously. Yet outside disenchantment, as dangerous as it might be in the long run, is not nearly as threatening as the erosion of one’s domestic population’s adherence to their national myths. That adherence must be maintained at all cost otherwise the nation will metamorphose into something that no longer supports its present elites. The fate of the “new historians” has demonstrated just how determined the Israeli establishment is to prevent that sort of erosion.
That being the case, Israel’s present Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, has extended for an additional twenty years the period during which government archives can remain closed."
"The period of time for which documents will now remain classified include such events as the 1954 Lavon Affair, the 1956 Sinai invasion, and the 1967 war which saw the heinous attack on the USS Liberty and the seizure of the Golan Heights. The State Archivist, Yehoshua Freundlich told Haaretz that “some of the material was selected classified because ‘it has implications over [Israel’s] adherence to international law.’” This is probably an understatement. To add insult to injury, Haaretz reports that there is a good possibility that the government’s decision to classify much of Israel’s past as top secret will mean that “archives that had already been made public would again be hidden away.”"In itself, the truth about the Jewish slaughter of the sailors on the Liberty would be the beginning of the end for the Jews in the Middle East.
"Israel must lift its military blockade of the Gaza Strip and invite an independent, fact-finding mission to investigate its raid on a Gaza-bound aid flotilla, a United Nations rights body said on Friday.
The U.N. Human Rights Committee also told Israel to ensure that Palestinians in the occupied territories can enjoy the fundamental civil and political freedoms that Israel had pledged to uphold in the main international human rights treaty.
Israel maintains that the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights does not apply to the occupied West Bank and Gaza, although it says that the treaty does apply to Jewish settlers there, committee member Christine Chanet said.
There are no Israeli settlers in Gaza itself.
'In Israel's written responses to the committee, one could see a total discrimination in the sense that settlers benefited from the pact,' she told a news briefing.
'We have maintained our position on the applicability of the covenant. We are stronger because the International Court of Justice has said we were right on this position,' she added, referring to the World Court's 2004 advisory opinion.
Chanet, a former French judge and international human rights expert, said: 'It is very difficult to have a real dialogue (with Israel).'"
"The U.S. companies identified by investigators include web-based firms that pair freelance job-seekers with employers and transfer payments between them, the Journal said. Authorities have identified financial transfers from several intermediary businesses into prepaid, cash-card accounts used by suspects in the Dubai killing, according to international investigators.
The companies are not accused of any complicity in the attack - instead, investigators believe suspects might have posed as freelancers to obtain while that obscuring its source, using the money for operational expenses, such as plane tickets.
Representatives of several companies identified in the probe, including, Elance Inc. and Rent a Coder, now called vWorker.com, said they had not been contacted by U.S. authorities and were unaware of any investigation."
- Constantly remind everybody of the Jewish holocaust and the mythical ongoing threats to Jews to provide the idea that whatever crazy things Jews do it is all done in self-defense ("Survivors of the Holocaust are entitled to feelings that are irrational"), with no one else having the moral right, given the universal participation in Jew hatred, of questioning what Jews do;
- Play up Islamophobia at every possible chance, thus fitting American thinking into the 'war on terror' template invented in Israel to force Americans to continue to support the murdering and land theft by Jews.
Nobody would have noticed if the ADL hadn't weighed in on the Muslim community center in Manhattan. It was just too tempting to jump on the bandwagon and come up with the most convoluted explanation based on catering to the irrational fantasies of the worst bigots - Paul Krugman does a good job of playing out its implications - to attempt to spread more Islamophobia. One good thing about this is that the ADL has finally been completely exposed for what it really is. Another good thing is that the community center, which is going to be built anyway, will be strengthened by the fact that everybody now realizes that its opponents are just hate-filled monsters.
