(Image: State schools, come on in!)
Independent: Is the Government Right to be Concerned About Home-Schooling?
I don't usually feel inclined to applaud mainstream reporting. But, bravo to the Independent here! Just to quote the best bits of the article:
But home-schooling families feel persecuted, according to Ann Newstead, of charity Education Otherwise. "The authorities say that if they can see a child every day in school then they can look for subtle changes that indicate abuse, but 99.9 per cent of cases of abuse and neglect are happening to children in school," she says. "There is no evidence of abuse in home-schooled families, and when you push people for this they just say: 'Well, statistically it has to be happening.'"
The Spry case, she claims, was about welfare failure not home schooling. New home education guidelines were brought in only two years ago. "Many of us think that the real aim of this review is to gain educational control over parents. The authorities didn't get the powers they wanted last time, so now they are using welfare as their trump card. They want some form of compulsory monitoring. They are under pressure to get results, and they live by outcomes and performance indicators."
US research shows that home-educated children – even less advantaged ones – markedly outperform children in school by the age of 14. Research by Paula Rothermel of Durham University has similar findings. "They do very well compared with the norms for state school children. It may be school dumbs children down, or it may be to do with how the brain works when left to its own devices."
The only thing everyone agrees on is that the numbers of home-schooling children are rising fast. Katie Bell's children may soon not be counted among them, however. If the authorities take away her freedom to educate her children as she wants she says she's off to Canada. "They even give you money for home schooling there," she says.
In my own experience, state education is not very productive and does little else other than churn out robots and fail anyone who will not conform to the system (and no, I didn't fail, I reluctantly conformed). It needs reform, and definitely the National Curriculum should be removed. I mean, think about it, government control over what is taught in classrooms?!
This is the real world. Some parents abuse children. It's a crime and should be punished, and the children should be protected. But why would state intervention in the family EVER, except in the very worst cases, benefit the child? God knows how many children in care are on Ritalin or some other wonder pill. What this issue has to do with persecuting homeschoolers, I don't know.
Hutton admits UK handed over suspects for rendition
There is zero justification for extraordinary rendition. It's not 'soft on terrorism' to oppose it. It's simple common sense. If you're going to detain someone as a suspect, then have the balls (and the morals) to show some evidence for why they're being detained - it's that simple!
And just in case anyone thinks extraordinary rendition is good and for 'terror suspects' only, rest assured that government likes to share, and who knows, maybe soon you'll get a ride on a windowless aircraft too! Sounds exciting...

I know, I know...it's about economics, free trade v planned economy, low taxes v tax-and-spend. On social matters, it's traditionalist v progressive, mostly pro v anti aggression, (and one for any pro-lifers reading) against v for the killing of babies.
But there are problems with this way of seeing politics. Perhaps I should explain:
1. It turns it into a sport. This may seem OK, but it encourages ignorance and tribalism, and individuals are pushed to conform towards one philosophy or the other. If you hold some 'left wing' beliefs and some 'right wing' beliefs, you are considered a 'centrist', the ultimate insult - someone who sits on the fence and can't make up their minds. Probably because they're not 'educated' enough to join the fight against the 'evil Communist left' or the 'evil Fascist right'.
2. It can not be a yardstick to determine what is 'good' government. I refuse to view the world through a spectrum which places Ghandi next to Robert Mugabe. Governments can be called 'left' or 'right', but this has no bearing on whether or not that society is free or prosperous.
Take African 'left wing' societies (eg Angola?) and compare them to some Social Democratic European nations (I'm thinking Sweden in particular). What is the difference? You might want to say Sweden is richer, which would be true. But it is also more 'free' (I presume! - if not Angola then pick another dictatorship with left wing status, eg Zimbabwe). You presumably can voice opposition without getting "long sleeves or short sleeves" if you know what I mean.
Now look at 'right wing' societies. The classic example of course is Nazi Germany (cracks me up when people say that regime was socialist...it wasn't socialism posing as nationalism, it was vice versa). This was quite a capitalist country. Compare with America (pre-2007 of course, and I mainly refer to the postwar period) which was a prosperous society, also considered primarily a capitalist and low-ish tax country. Yet the two would fall next to each other on the left-right spectrum.
So it's not looking too good for the left-right paradigm as a viable scale on which governments can be measured. Perhaps I could suggest an alternative scale?
The Authority-Liberty paradigm.
Totalitarianism - Authoritarianism ----------- Libertarianism -- Anarchism
The left-right paradigm is mainly economic, and the result has been a divide in the idea of what freedom is. Generally, the 'left' will tell you what to do with money, but allow you other freedoms such as 'human rights'; and the 'right' will allow you to do as you wish with your money, but is more likely to promote blowing other people up. Why can't we do as we wish with our money and not have to blow other people up? Because we're not presented with that choice, on the left-right paradigm.
On the authority-liberty paradigm, we are falling towards tyranny faster than the collapse of WTC7 (had to get a 'freefall speed' reference in there). ALL of us in the 'developed' world. Gordon Brown is half right - we have a global problem - but we need 'local solutions', not global ones. "Think Global, Act Local". The people who advocate more socialism, more 'war on terror' and continuing the mindlessly expensive warfare that comes with it, and more 'Big Brother' - these are people who I want to warn about the potential for the combination of a Technocratic Fascist Global Government, with the Eugenicist agenda of the NWO. I want to tell them that "You're Going the Wrong Way!"
Freedom is an indivisible whole. We use the word all the time. You are either free or you are not. "None are free until all are free". The left-right paradigm ensures that you will only ever be HALFWAY free. You'll always have someone telling you what to do - whether it's to give more taxes to the state or suppoort a war. Me, I am just a stubborn lad who doesn't like being told what to do :-) but I am pretty sure that many people, stubborn or otherwise, don't like over-reaching authority and the evil it brings.
Let's not push politics 'further to the left', or 'further to the right', let's push it 'further to the free'. Limited government is not a 'right wing' concept - if you don't limit government, IT will limit YOU.

(Image: Graffiti by Banksy. Apparently, he set up 3-storey scaffolding to do this, with CCTV all around, and didn't get caught. Kudos.)[quote]
All methods described in this guide have been thoroughly tested in practice.
Please pay close attention to training section.
Comments, suggestions and updates mailto:email@example.com
Last updated September 2001.
WHY DESTROY CCTV CAMERAS ?
1.1) Why destroy cctv cameras ?
Trust your instincts, but if you need intellectual justification then:
"The gaze of the cameras does not fall equally on all users of the street but on those who are stereotypical predefined as potentially deviant, or through appearance and demeanour, are singled out by operators as unrespectable. In this way youth, particularly those already socially and economically marginal, may be subject to even greater levels of authoritative intervention and official stigmatisation, and rather than contributing to social justice through the reduction of victimisation, CCTV will merely become a tool of injustice through the amplification of differential and discriminatory policing."
"an instrument of social control and the production of discipline; the production of 'anticipatory conformity'; the certainty of rapid deployment to observed deviance and; the compilation of individualised dossiers of the monitored population."
"The unforgiving Eye: CCTV surveillance in public space" Dr Clive Norris and Gary Armstrong of the Centre for Criminology and Criminal Justice at Hull University, UK.
"What we have been able to show is that CCTV didn't reduce crime - if anything it has increased - and it didn't reduce fear of crime. If anything there was a slight increase in anxiety."
Prof Jason Ditton of Sheffield University.
TYPES OF CCTV CAMERA.
2.1) Dummy CCTV cameras
These should be destroyed and removed as they still induce paranoia and fear of punishment.
"Full bodied Dummy CCTV Camera including Lens and Mounting Bracket. Uses an actual Camera body so it looks like the real thing."
2.2) Hidden CCTV cameras.
They are also useful for back-up surveillance in installations where the primary CCTV equipment is of a more traditional nature, i.e. standard cameras. In this case Covert Cameras can operate as a back-up where primary cameras are disabled by an intruder. Used mostly for temporary installations to catch repetitve criminal activity.
Discouraged by UK home office.
2.3) Wall mounted CCTV cameras.
Normally mounted just out of reach of an individual, but accessible by two people working together.
Mostly protecting private property, but often also covering public space.
2.4) Roof mounted CCTV cameras.
Normally police traffic cameras, but sometimes private or large offices or institutions.
2.5) Street post mounted CCTV cameras.
Normally local authority operated for surveillance of shopping areas or police traffic cameras.
2.7) Networked CCTV cameras.
networked - control centre in police station or council buildings
2.8) Airbourne CCTV cameras.
eg helicopter, blimp
METHODS OF ATTACK.
3.1) Plastic bag.
Plastic bag filled with glue does the trick nicely.
Cheap and almost as effective as other short term techniques. Use Industrial grade bags which are thicker. Sometimes a camera going into repair will be 'bagged' over, so visually its ambiguous. To Bag a camera theres a high chance that you can reach it with ease. If this is the case dont hesitate to smash the glass, lens and any other components. Dont bag it afterwards, people need to see the units smashed.
Gives clear indication of inoperability.
3.2) Sticker and tape.
Placing of sticker or tape over lense.
Good training activity.
Gives clear indication of inoperability.
3.3) Paint gun.
Use a childs power water pistol with household paint.
Fast, fun and easy method - Highly recommended.
Easy to disable many cameras in a short period of time. a typical one hour action can easily take out 10 cameras.
Carry reserve paint in plastic containers.
Filter paint to remove lumps to avoid blocking gun.
Go for lense first and then cover the rest of the camera and surrounding area.
Clear indication of inoperability, plus draws further attention to the camera.
Camera is easily cleaned so only effective for short time only.
We used super soaker SC 400 - 2000 Edition camoflaged for urban night actions.
With a 50/50 mix of water based house paint (emulsion) and water we could hit targets easily at 4.5m above the ground.
Such a paint mixture totally obscures view through glass lense cover once applied.
Be prepared to get splattered: use disposable clothing.
No climbing required.
3.5) Cable cutting.
Cables can be cut with either a sharp hand axe or garden pruning tools.
Make sure tools are electrically insulated to prevent shock from camera power supply.
Casual glance at dangling cables will reveal that camera is inoperable.
Requires complete costly rewiring.
Satisfying sparks emitted when cables cut.
3.6) Block drop.
Climb to the roof of the building on which the camera is mounted with some heavy weights eg concrete blocks and drop them on the cameras below.
Get correct drop position by dropping small stones first.
Camera will be totally destroyed in a shower of sparks.
Scaling tall buidlings with concrete blocks requires a certain level of fitness.
Pay careful attention to safety of others below.
This is a seriously hardcore method.
3.7) Total removal.
Totally deinstall camera system.
Perhaps leave smashed up remains in public place.
TRAINING.Training is essential for not only fitness, but also for developing techniques and more importantly preparing for unpredictable events.
4.1) Working together.
Get to know your partner very well.
You will need to know your partners limits and abilities.
You will need to know how much you can trust each other.
You can never be too fit.
Vary your exercises, but best training is actually doing.
Dont go to the gym - you need to be deconditioned not conditioned.
Play on the terrain you will operate on.
Start on something easy like stickering.
4.3) Learning territory.
Know every part of the area you will operate in.
Explore by day and night.
Climb every tree, building.
Explore every alley, bush and tunnel.
Climb every wall and railing and fence.
Don't use paths or streets (only cross them at right angles).
If you have a police helicopter in your area then train aerial counter surveillance ie finding exisitng cover, flares, smoke bombs.
Have to be honest, that was both funny and interesting. Smoke bombs? "We used Super Soaker for urban night actions"? It kind of surprised me that the people writing this had actually done these things. I don't know why.
Again, I do not encourage vandalism. But then again, I do not encourage the damn cameras being there in the first place. What are you filming me for? And I can't even take a photo of you 'enforcers of the state' without being arrested! Compared to that injustice, painting over a CCTV camera really is a drop in the ocean.
Actually, I would like to suggest a solution to the vandalism of CCTV cameras. Government could remove them!...then no-one would be smashing them up. Oh wait, banning inanimate objects only works with drugs and guns. Silly me, I forgot.

(Image: Authoritarian absurdity.)
Shane Boyd, who had been the subject of an ASBO for violent behaviour from the age of 12, wanted revenge after discovering that Conor Black, also 16, had borrowed an Xbox computer games console and not returned it.
Boyd sought out Conor, a college student, outside a house party in August last year, before hitting him over the head with a can of beer and stabbing him in the back with a kitchen knife. As the teenager lay dying Boyd paraded around the street boasting: “I’m the best — I’m the man.”
USA Today: Shoe Thrower says he intended to restore Iraq's pride
(Image: The infamous deed. Bush displays a side of him we can admire...his reactions!)
The man is, any way you cut it, a hero. That, by the way, has nothing to do with Bush, who was the old patsy for the internationalist agenda in Iraq. It is about Iraq not wanting to be pushed around and divide-and-conquered any more.
So let me get this straight. Saddam was hardly a benevolent dictator. His family was mafia-like and dominated the country, including acts of genocide against the Kurds in the early 90s.
And that is where my willingness to parallell the mainstream media abruptly ends. Saddam was put in place and armed by the CIA, something that people persistently ignore.
More info on arming Saddam: here and here (yes the latter is Iranian but read the source articles and make up your own mind).
It is also important to note the massive civilian deaths caused BOTH before and after the fall of Saddam by first sanctions, then civil war. Everyone focuses on civilian deaths post March 2003 (estimates of over 1 million), but not all of these are the responsibility of the Coalition, at least not directly. The Iraq civil war (can't believe it was anything else) which appears to have been a proxy war with both the West and Iran meddling in the conflict, is probably responsible for the majority of deaths.
Arguably, the even greater (and totally overlooked) crime was the so-called 'sanctions' against Iraq between 1990 and 2003. These, in combination with bombs and DU poisoning, is estimated to have killed over 1 million people, by multiple accounts.
So Iraq is getting back on its feet after 25 years of conflict and poverty. The country should not be poor; it was in fact prosperous pre-Iran war. It wasn't poor only because of Saddam, though; the UN and the American elite (globalists) are responsible for maybe 2 million dead and economic destruction in this otherwise wealthy oil-exporting nation, as well as being responsible for Saddam's ascent in the first place.
At this point I need to deal with the classic myth 'the surge worked'. See the interview with Ray McGovern. And why is Iraq staying relatively calm? "Sadr confirms extension of Mahdi Army cease-fire" Why? Because Iran, his backers, are telling him to! Why else? And if al-Sadr isn't continuing the war, Iraq looks peaceful and there is pressure on the coalition to pull out.
If the stated aim of the Iraq invasion was to liberate Iraq from tyrants, then the biggest tyrants they will need to get rid of are the coalition and their masters. Preferably peaceably. When the Iraqi government says it wants the coalition out, is when it is time to leave (oops! That's already happened!)
But with the Obama betrayal, troops will be staying in Iraq for everandever, probably. Or at least, there is no end in sight. Maybe McCain's '100 years' wasn't that far off?
Starring Clive Owen, The International has a plot encompassing a secretive elite bank who are a front for a criminal group who 'control everything'.
You would think writers would be encouraged to write actual fiction ;-)
Or maybe it's a psyop which would work something like this: "You believe the bankers control society? Aww, you just saw that on The International...nut."
A must-watch, especially if you still believe in the practice.
What particularly struck a chord with me was the conditioned idea among Germans under Hitler that only 'hoodlums' owned guns. A reflection of Western European gun politics. There's a reason we say 'never again'! ...beacuse it could easily happen again.

When President John Fitzgerald Kennedy - the author of Profiles in Courage -signed this Order, it returned to the federal government, specifically the Treasury Department, the Constitutional power to create and issue currency -money - without going through the privately owned Federal Reserve Bank. President Kennedy's Executive Order 11110 [the full text is displayed further below] gave the Treasury Department the explicit authority: "to issue silver certificates against any silver bullion, silver, or standard silver dollars in the Treasury." This means that for every ounce of silver in the U.S. Treasury's vault, the government could introduce new money into circulation based on the silver bullion physically held there. As a result, more than $4 billion in United States Notes were brought into circulation in $2 and $5 denominations. $10 and $20 United States Notes were never circulated but were being printed by the Treasury Department when Kennedy was assassinated. It appears obvious that President Kennedy knew the Federal Reserve Notes being used as the purported legal currency were contrary to the Constitution of the United States of America.
"United States Notes" were issued as an interest-free and debt-free currency backed by silver reserves in the U.S. Treasury. We compared a "Federal Reserve Note" issued from the private central bank of the United States (the Federal Reserve Bank a/k/a Federal Reserve System), with a "United States Note" from the U.S. Treasury issued by President Kennedy's Executive Order. They almost look alike, except one says "Federal Reserve Note" on the top while the other says "United States Note". Also, the Federal Reserve Note has a green seal and serial number while the United States Note has a red seal and serial number.
President Kennedy was assassinated on November 22, 1963 and the United States Notes he had issued were immediately taken out of circulation. Federal Reserve Notes continued to serve as the legal currency of the nation. According to the United States Secret Service, 99% of all U.S. paper "currency" circulating in 1999 are Federal Reserve Notes.
Kennedy knew that if the silver-backed United States Notes were widely circulated, they would have eliminated the demand for Federal Reserve Notes. This is a very simple matter of economics. The USN was backed by silver and the FRN was not backed by anything of intrinsic value. Executive Order 11110 should have prevented the national debt from reaching its current level (virtually all of the nearly $9 trillion in federal debt has been created since 1963) if LBJ or any subsequent President were to enforce it. It would have almost immediately given the U.S. Government the ability to repay its debt without going to the private Federal Reserve Banks and being charged interest to create new "money". Executive Order 11110 gave the U.S.A. the ability to, once again, create its own money backed by silver and realm value worth something.
Again, according to our own research, just five months after Kennedy was assassinated, no more of the Series 1958 "Silver Certificates" were issued either, and they were subsequently removed from circulation. Perhaps the assassination of JFK was a warning to all future presidents not to interfere with the private Federal Reserve's control over the creation of money. It seems very apparent that President Kennedy challenged the "powers that exist behind U.S. and world finance". With true patriotic courage, JFK boldly faced the two most successful vehicles that have ever been used to drive up debt:
1) war (Viet Nam); and,
2) the creation of money by a privately owned central bank. His efforts to have all U.S. troops out of Vietnam by 1965 combined with Executive Order 11110 would have destroyed the profits and control of the private Federal Reserve Bank.

Reuters: NAFTA foes have hope for Obama renegotiation
(Image: Similar trade agreements to NAFTA preceded the European Union.)I crossed my fingers as I read this on the 1-in-a-million chance NAFTA would be somehow ended or weakened. Sadly, but unsurprisingly, this is not the case.
While NAFTA is on the agenda for the one-day visit with Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Canadian lawmakers, the short get-acquainted sessions will allow little time for detailed discussion, Wallach said.
So they're going to talk, maybe about NAFTA, but probably not - and, well, something might be done in the future, perhaps...
L to the O to the L. What a false piece of posing he and Hillary did during the campaign about how American jobs need protecting, and so on. Am I surprised? Not really. Just globalist pawns doing what they are put there to do.
Point is, yes the Israeli government is corrupt and evil, and a lot of the top NWO heads (eg Kissinger) are ostensibly Jewish. But don't blame the Jews (or all Israelis) for the NWO, because that's exactly what's wanted of you.

(Image: From the US One Dollar Bill.)
First, there is the generic use of the term, which is described from Wikipedia as follows:
The term "new world order" has been used to refer to a new period of history evidencing a dramatic change in world political thought and the balance of power.
That's pretty simple. A new outlook, a new leaderdship, affecting the world.
Second, is the specific usage of the term 'new world order' by globalists (Rockefeller, Kissinger et al) to summarise their agenda for 'world domination', which unfortunately makes them sound more like Stewie from Family Guy than any real threat.
So perhaps it is best to break down this agenda, which is multi-faceted but always revolves around one summarising concept: Control.
Food Control: This is the subjugation of global food production, using GM 'biotechnology' as a means to make people dependent on seed supplies from GM companies. Even though GM food is no better (and may be worse) for crop yields, its use is consistently being expanded worldwide. They (including biotech giant Monsanto) aim to make every food producer dependent on their seeds.
Economic Control: This is the domination of global finance via central banks, and other institutions such as the IMF, to wield total control over the issue of currency. This necessitates the creation of fiat currency (money which doesn't derive its value from any commodity), and the use of debt as a weapon to force people (especially in the Third World) to co-operate with the rest of the agenda.
Population Control: It's no secret that the elites have a taste for eugenics: Social Darwinism, their connections to Nazism, their approval of Chinese one-child policy, their suggested limits on global population (some have suggested as low as 250-300 million). This is manifest in encouraging abortions, and chemical warfare on the people.
And in order for them to get away with all this, they need:
Mind Control: I'm not talking about overt thought implantation (at least not right now, I hope that will never happen). But more subtle forms of mind control are a vital weapon in the NWO's arsenal, such as...
- Media Control. The dominance of the mass media with hosts and backroom folks who are complicit to the agenda. This presents a false view of politics to the viewer, who is in turn blinded to the agenda.
- Doublethink and Denial. The former was first coined by Orwell in 1984. It means 'to believe two mutually exclusive statements to simultaneously be true'. My favourite example of this subconscious hypocrisy is "Global government is a conspiracy theory...Internationalism is good so we can fight climate change." Meanwhile, the latter is employed most prominently as an emotive put-down to so-called 'conspiracy theorists', such as "You think the government would kill 3000 of its own citizens. They wouldn't do that."
- Chemical Warfare. If it seems outrageous, I would say you need to look into mercury in vaccines and fillings, sodium fluoride in water, barium in chemtrails, and aspartame in sweeteners. It's not the first time chemicals have been used to brain-damage the populace - the Nazis invented water fluoridation as a means to subdue resistance and intent to escape among concentration camp inmates.
The final agenda is for them to live as a superior species (look into 'Trans-Humanism'), while a small number of the current world population will serve as a subordinate 'slave' species. That is what I mean by world domination.
Gerald Celente of the Trends Research Institute forecasts the 'worst economic collapse ever' and suggests there will be another revolution in America, starting with tax revolts.
It's unprecedented. There is nothing like it in the history of the United States. No week goes by without the Government buying into or buying up another failing "too big to fail" using taxpayer money. In the process, a super-race of corporate giants is being created that will be declared "too big to tumble." It is a matter of historical fact: When people are homeless, helpless, desperate, jobless and hungry, sooner or later they will rebel. And it won’t be any different in America.....
Will the docile TV watchers really revolt? I can't answer that one. Hopefully, though, if it does come to that, the police and military will side with the populace rather than the tyrannical establishment.
(Image: taken from the homepage of www.arkancide.com depicting a list of those who were in some way connected to the Clintons who died mysteriously.)
Here's what to do if you disagree:
Make a list of all the deceased.
Verify that they were real people with real connections to the Clintons and who really died violently - and were not just imaginary people invented by anti-Clinton propagandists.
Find out how they were connected to the Clintons and what information they were going to divulge.
Find out when the Clintons became aware of this.
Find out how soon afterwards each potential witness was bumped off.
Explain why so many of these murders had similar MO's (bullets fired into the back of the head, exploding planes etc.).
Explain why so many of these murders were described as suicides by the coroner.
Find out who appointed the coroner.
Here's what to do if you still disagree:
Have a brain transplant or start eating more fish.
Then the only remaining question will be: "was it Bill or Hillary?"

Well, to say it is suspicious is an understatement. To say it's unfortunate would be patronising. To say it's a coincidence would be thorough denial. So I'll just call it what it is...murder.

But humanity has always detested tyranny and will crush this one like all others.
Just refuse to give in, as long as there are seeds for the future ^ there will be a free tomorrow.
-$787 billion is the official figure. Remember, though, that $700bn was the tag on the Banker Bailout, and it ended up costing $8.5 trillion. Architects of that bill admitted they had just 'thought of a really big number'.
-ACORN are perhaps the most 'controversial' recipients of taxpayers' money in this package. Quite how a not-for-profit will help kick-start the economy is beyond me.
-Nobody had a chance to read the bill before it was voted on. It's time to ask yourself, if you think this bill is good, why wasn't time granted for representatives to at least READ the bill before deciding? What does it say about those who support the bill in spite of this? Blind loyalty, sheep mentality, or brain damage?
The 'whoops, no time to read' situation is by no means an accident. The same thing happened with the Patriot Act.
Why is it that "anything that's important" is always brought to vote in a hurry so no-one can make an informed decision?
This is not just about America. The designed implosion of the economy will be worsened another degree or two by this bill, on top of the Banker Bailout bill. The epicentre may be the States, but the whole world will be affected.
The freedom of the 'free world' hangs by a thread. It will come down to what the masses cry out for: Liberty, or a Global Central Bank with carbon taxes and 'food' camps. We will see.
(BBC) New IPCC Report: Severity of Global Warming underestimated
(Image: Global Warming...It's the Sun, Stupid!)Strangely, global temperatures are cooling this year - wherever you are, you will have noticed the record cold winter! (I know, it's weather not climate, but still...) For now, La Nina (opposite of El Nino) ocean conditions are a cheap and easy excuse. But, solar activity is at a 300-year low, so give it a few years for it to sink in that the CO2 nuts are wrong. You know, when the previous decades' warming is undone.
And maybe I'll turn out to be wrong. If I am, I will happily set to work reducing my 'carbon footprint' and whining about the fossil fuels and how they're killing the polar bears (despite their population increasing in the last 50 years). But the Sun is immesurably more significant than micro-changes to the Earth's atmospheric composition, so I will put my money on the Sun being the driver of climate.
The unfortunate thing about all this is that the REAL environmental concerns, such as GM organisms, or the drugs making their way into water supplies, or other kinds of corporate pollution (ie non-'greenhouse gas'), are largely overlooked by environmentalists, in favour of this total red herring.
(Image: I am Rothschild, the world is mine. MWHAHAHA!)So, finance ministers now squeal about free trade (you know, AFTER the bailouts and 'stimulus' money printing in America, over here and throughout Europe.) And of course, it has nothing to do with protecting freedom. Seems the only form of market restrictions they can't bear is protectionism...because, of course, that represents the power of national sovereignty - the very thing the globalists have been undermining since WWI and the League of Nations.
We didn't hear anything about free trade 300 years ago when the Bank of England, the first modern central bank, was created. We didn't hear anything when bankers caused the Panic of 1907 then set up the Federal Reserve in the US in 1913. We didn't hear anything when the 1929 Wall Street crash was engineered and Hitler later rose to power in 1933. We didn't hear anything when the World Bank and the IMF were formed and began enslaving the world with debt. We didn't hear anything when gold standards were removed (Britain 1931, America 1971 when Bretton Woods collapsed). And we didn't hear anything when the recent corporatist bailouts and 'injections of capital' went straight to the banks with no transparency.
So why are the elites bringing up the free trade argument now? Well, it has nothing to do with free trade, as seen above. It instead has everything to do with crushing protectionism - which is national sovereignty taking a stand against globalism.
But, of course, the G7 nations have so little national sovereignty left, they cannot even look out for themselves during a depression, if the bankers say they can't.

Cotton Wool Kids Part 1:
For some reason, Part 2 cannot be embedded:
It's just so sad to see the victims of media hype and fear-mongering, who WANT to RFID their kids. It reminds me of Hiroshima survivors' accounts of people who have been burnt and dehydrated to the point of death by the blast, blindly stumbling around the hillsides until they fall over. Or, in possibly the worst story, crushing and drowning each other in a puddle, which everyone was desperate to drink from. I digress, but the point is that the psychological damage done to these quasi-human beings by the media is comparable to the physical damage done to Hiroshima 'zombies'. And both sets of people do irrational things and unintentionally harm others as a result.
In defence of my home country, I can assure you that most people in Britain are not like this. But these are just the worst of the worst cases - media hype has probably affected the way just about every child is raised. (Vaccines are good - ignore the mercury, This food causes cancer - but aspertame does not, Home schooled kids are stupid - but state schools are not government indoctrination centres, etc.)
Another triumph for 'sex education' in schools.
(Summing up school sex education): "Okay, so this is what sex is, this is how it works, this is why we are concerned about you. But whatever you do, don't have unprotected sex! We're just telling you how to, so that you know, but don't go ahead and actually do it!"
Am I suggesting the state has an ulterior motive in 'providing' (forcibly) sex education for 11-year-olds? Which is, to sexualise children from a young age so they will have children at a young age, which will mean more welfare dependent no-hopers and a breakdown in conventional family structure? No, that sounds like a conspiracy theory...Let's give 5-year-olds sex education instead! (Maybe some slight sarcasm at the end there)
It describes "a fortnight in which Britain has been battered by the worst snowstorms in 18 years" and warns people to "look out for ice".
I know, sensationalist reporting is commonplace today, it's a marketing ploy to keep people reading/watching/listening. But this is uber-patronising and ridiculous. Especially when it seems the entirety of the British Isles has been buried in grit (not to mention smothered by 'Nanny knows best' policy).

NEWSFLASH: The world is ending! The ice caps are disappearing, the polar bears can't swim, the CO2 emissions are causing bigger hurricanes, droughts, famines, rains, snows, extreme heat, extreme cold, floods, and they're poisoning the sea.
Good. Now, what can we do about it? Well, 'international cooperation' would be useful. That means we all obey a single global authority called the World Bank or some such. We need to disincentivise fossil fuel usage, so let's tax carbon emissions. We could call it a 'carbon tax' and it would be payable to this global authority.
Also, those pesky Third World nations are trying to develop, which would mean they use more fossil fuels, so let's cause instability over there to make sure they don't contribute to global warming and kill each other instead.
In fact, every human being is contributing to global warming, so we need to reduce the population. Forced abortions in the Third World would be useful, and even though this would not work in the West, we can encourage abortion and euthanasia.
Also, since every child is a carbon-spewing monster, we could recommend a legal cap on births. We could call it a 'two-child policy', or perhaps even a 'one-child policy' if we are really serious about dealing with global warming, and people who have more than their fair share of pollution-producing life should be treated harshly for their selfishness.
Why not go one further? Instead of just reducing births, let's consider the great opportunities to combat global warming caused by current generations too. We could prevent long lifetimes by spraying the air with chemtrails containing carcinogen heavy metals such as barium. We could fluoridate the water supply, put mercury in vaccines, use aspartame sweeteners, and buy off scientists to conduct reassuring studies telling everyone these chemicals are not dangerous or even that they are benefitial.
And...whoops, it seems I have endorsed the entire Eugenics/Trans-Humanist agenda of population reduction...who could have known it was as easy as starting a fake environmental controversy...
Britain can't reduce its CO2 (oh now I am worried). Who knew that:
1. If we use oil in cars, and generate our electricity from coal, and heat our homes with gas, and don't change our energy sources, the upward trend would continue?
2. This is more CO2 = Global warming rubbish. Soon, with the record low solar activity, global warming will be dismissed as the Earth undergoes a general reduction in temperature.
Or, the CO2 alarmists will explain global cooling as being human caused too. Are the public dumbed down enough to believe that? I guess we will see.

"Obama said that he wanted bigger carrots and bigger sticks not to let Iran build a nuclear weapon. The United States will therefore use tougher sanctions against the nation to change Iran’s behavior, he added."
Seems the bully has picked on the wrong Middle Eastern Islamic Republic! (And I guess that means the White House won't be getting Ahmadinejad's lunch money either.)
(Images: A little bit of propaganda. Above, in Tehran, 'Down with USA and Israel'. Below, (well it's actually an anti-McCain poster) one of McCain's less tactful PR moments, captured for posterity.)
Iraq was starved and bombed for ten years prior to its invasion. The sanctions had the worst effect - they were designed to starve the people into rebellion against Saddam, but only resulted in famine in what was one of the Arabic world's richest regions. Then the government co-operated with UN weapons inspection programs, but what good did that do? They wound up getting invaded anyway.
Whether the removal of Saddam was morally correct, pragmatically correct, or within the jurisdiction of the Coalition, is a whole other thing. But the precedent has been set: 'co-operating' with the powers that be is seen as something that will be taken advantage of, rather than something that can be productive.
Or in short, the war in Iraq has given Iran good reason not to trust the US.
The burn injuries are "far worse than the Bali bombings", said an emergency physician who treated patients from both tragedies. "They not only have to cope with their own injuries, but have to cope with the loss of loved ones."

(Images: From the World Economic Forum protests, Zurich, 2009. Above Below)
ONE MILLION workers on the streets of France, wildcat strikes in Britain, rioting in Greece and the Baltic republics and sit-in protests by glass workers in Waterford: social unrest is spreading throughout Europe and no one knows where it is all going to end.
Last week the worst economic recession in at least 30 years claimed its first political victim in Europe when on Monday Iceland’s beleaguered prime minister Geir Haarde tendered his resignation following weeks of street protests. The collapse of the country’s banking system, which has shredded the value of the krona, driven interest rates to 18 per cent and unemployment to 8 per cent, put paid to his Conservative-led coalition.
"The Central Intelligence Agency owns everyone of any significance in the major media."
- William Colby, former Director of the CIA.
"We'll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false." Almost everything you read or see in your newspaper or on TV is false information, mostly CIA disinformation which is "leaked." You have been conned by professional main stream press and CIA disinformation artists." - again, former CIA director William Colby.
"The CIA is not now nor has it ever been a central intelligence agency. It is the covert action arm of the President's foreign policy advisers. In that capacity it overthrows or supports foreign governments while reporting 'intelligence' justifying those activities. It shapes its intelligence, even in such critical areas as Soviet nuclear weapons capability, to support presidential policy. Disinformation is a large part of its covert action responsibility, and the American people are the primary target of its lies." - Ralph McGehee, former CIA intelligence analyst "Deadly Deceits: My 25 Years in the CIA".
I just happened upon these today, but it isn't too much of a surprise. This is why independent journalism is so important. Stop swallowing what you see on teevee about some CIA report that is being banded about as justification for government or military action (specifically I am thinking about the reports that basically say "OH NO! TERRORISTS UNDER YOUR BED!")

Washington Post: US Officials Offer Dismal Review of War in Afghanistan
They call it a challenge 'much tougher than Iraq'. Well what did you expect! You know Afghanistan's tribal/xenophobic history. They just don't like foreigners, and will drag the fight on until you leave. Simple.
"Afghanistan has been known over the years as the graveyard of empires," he said. "We cannot take that history lightly." - General Petraeus, head of US Command.
Exactly - which is why it would be best to leave sooner rather than later. The economies of the ISAF countries, especially the US, cannot afford the war to drag on. I have some sympathy for the military commanders in Afghanistan - like ex-CIA man Ray McGovern, they probably realise they are stuck in an unwinnable war.
(Image: the road to Bamiyan, Aghnainstan. An example of the difficult terrain our forces have to fight in.)
(Image: Ukrainian war memorial to their dead in the 1980s Afghan War. That conflict lasted ten years, and played a part in the collapse of the Soviet Union.)Meanwhile...Afghanistan's Karzai Offers Peace to 'Friendly Taliban' (VOANews)
A good idea to try and 'divide and conquer' the Taliban. But, history shows the Afghan mountain-dwellers tend to stand united against foreigners; the only time they are divided is when they go back to fighting each other once the outsiders are dispatched.
All of this set against the background of Obama's Afghan-Pakistani surge policy...I am not convinced as to the purposes and merits of the Afghan campaign.
But hey, the CIA probably loves the other 'surge'; opium production since the invasion has increased to 93% of world production in 2007. The Taliban outlawed opium cultivation, and in 2001 the output was 91% lower than in 2000. But since their ousting, production has soared. (Am I suggesting the lovely people in the US Federal government would deal drugs? No. I'm telling you.)
Anyways, squeal all you want about 'getting behind the cause' or some such, the war is unwinnable and should be ended ASAP.
"Salt Shipments Due as Snow Forecast"
The difference, of course, is that peoples' lives actually depended on those shipments.
However, what seems to be of equal importance nowadays, is dealing with 'dangerous driving conditions' and 'dangerous footpaths'. Don't worry, people of Britain, salt is on the way! Is this how far our domestication has gone?
Premise 1: Obama is an idealist 'good guy'.
Premise 2: Obama is stopping torture.
Premise 3: Torture is effective.
Premise 4: Torture is necessary.
Premise 5: Terrorism is not secret service/government-sponsored.
All of the above is of course false. Obama is no idealist. Torture is continuing, only not at Guantanamo. Torture was abandoned centuries ago because it didn't yield anything worthwhile. Thus, even if there was a real outside terrorist threat torture would not be necessary or useful. Most of the terrorism in the West has been government-sponsored.
But, do you see the false debate this article creates in your mind? Do you even realise it programs you to consider arguments for and against torture, when governments pre-9/11 had abandoned torture because it is useless? (Not just this article or this paper, the entire MSM, especially TV news; but this is a good example of 'psych-warfare'.)
And, since you are thinking about whether torture is right or wrong (lol), you aren't thinking about who benefited from 9/11, or whether empire-building should continue, or whether the criminal central banks should control the issue of money, or whether the banking mafias are setting up a one world police state.
So, is the writer idealistic, or just a globalist new world order shill? Take your pick.

"The ideal set up by the Party was something huge, terrible, and glittering—a world of steel and concrete, of monstrous machines and terrifying weapons—a nation of warriors and fanatics, marching forward in perfect unity, all thinking the same thoughts and shouting the same slogans, perpetually working, fighting, triumphing, persecuting—three hundred million people all with the same face."
"There was of course no way of knowing whether you were being watched at any given moment. How often, or on what system, the Thought Police plugged in on any individual wire was guesswork.

- The potential of thermite/thermate as a CD explosive seemed questionable.
- The prescence of the 'thermite fingerprint' in WTC dust seemed to be uncertain; could the chemicals have come from PCs in the office, or the steel cutting done by the cleanup workers.
Alas, now, Debunking the Debunkers has a conclusive solution:
I could go over the other ways in which 9/11 is clearly an inside job. Thankfully, 911truth.org has saved me the trouble.
(Image: "Stop the Police State". Would be nice if officers would stop obeying orders that breach the rights of the citizenry.)[Electronic surveillance and collection of personal data are "pervasive" in British society and threaten to undermine democracy, peers have warned.]
Democracy was thoroughly undermined a long, long time ago. In fact, in Britain, since the Bank of England was established before voting rights, it never really existed.
[The government said CCTV and DNA were "essential" to fight crime but campaign group Liberty said abuses of power mean "even the innocent have a lot to fear".]
Same old, same old about 'necessity'. And ESPECIALLY the innocent have a lot to fear. But hopefully, the people will wake up, and then those who are truly guilty will have A LOT to fear.
U.S. troops were being quizzed on whether or not they would be prepared to shoot their own friends and family members during a national state of emergency in America.
"I have become very close to this young man and have gained his respect and trust," writes Scott. "I want you to know that he informed me about one particular training exercise his superiors made them perform. It was concerning the rounding up of American citizens that disobey any type of martial law or in other words any type of infringement on our freedoms."
"He was asked if he could shoot his friends or family members if ordered to do so. At the time he said he could," writes Scott.
Scott says that the soldier later "had time to clear his head" and realize the truth, recanting his vow to kill his own countrymen if ordered to do so.
Whatever happened to the good military commanders who prevented the 1933 Fascist American banker coup, like General Smedley Butler? Hopefully the military will not obey orders to gun-grab or detain en masse the people.
Then Fox News (for the 100th time) slurs 9/11 'Truthers', this time describing them as 'mentally ill'.
I have no idea why, such a positive portrayal of 9/11 truth was given by FX. (Most 'truther' fictional characters are portrayed as either crazy or drug-taking losers.) Although it does promote - by saying it was a neoconservative conspiracy - the myth that 9/11 truth is a left-wing concept, thus shutting out half of the population to the truth movement. There are no wings when it comes to prosecuting mass murderers.
(Images: Top, 'September 11 Families for Peaceful Tomorrows'...in other words, it's the 9/11 COVERUP not the TRUTH MOVEMENT that offends the victims; Middle, Dr David Ray Griffin (right) the author of Debunking 9/11 Debunking; Bottom, 9/11 Truthers getting the word out.)
If you aren't convinced that not just 9/11, but the entire totalitarian operation in the West today, is the work of a shadow government and not of 'neoconservatives', nor 'socialists', look at Obama's policies relative to Bush's.
- Torture: will continue. Guantanamo's closure is a distraction, the 'combatants' will be held eleswhere. Extraordinary rendition (aka kidnapping) will also continue.
- Central Bank Fraud: both the bank bailout under Bush, and the stimulus package being pushed by Obama, are not really 'bailouts' or 'stimulus' at all. They are blank cheques for the central bank to print what they want, and buy up infastructure.
"Through 2009, the bill would permit the FDIC to request unlimited amounts to cover losses related to the higher limits."
- The 'War on Terror': this will continue, albeit with some token withdrawals from Iraq. The McCain-forecasted 100 year war is still on. Big escalations in Pakistan present a massive geoplitical and nuclear danger, and this fake 'war on terror' will only escalate, not wind down.
I could go on. But what's the point? It's fairly obvious that nothing has Changed, because the people in the real seats of power haven't changed.
(Image: A little detail to go with this picture: despite apparently being on opposite sides of the fake partisan political war; the Clintons and Bushes actually advise one another and agree on most policy. That's because they are pawns to the money masters. Oh, did I say that out loud?)

Just another teeny tiny step on the road to total fascism:
A London Observer article, which all but triumphs children spying on and chastising their parents for claimed “eco-crimes,” betrays the absurdity and mindlessness of how these scenarios are being played out.
Ominously entitled, “Green children re-educate their parents,” the writer describes how his five-year-old daughter was angrily filing through his passport, before issuing a firm rebuke about how many times her father had traveled to America.
“How many times have you been on a plane to America?” asks the child.
“About 40,” her father responds.
“And how many trees have you planted?”
“I’m going to tell Miss White.”
The absurd irony of course is that the daughter threatens to inform on her father to the teacher for the “eco-crime” of contributing towards CO2 emissions and not planting trees, when in fact trees absorb CO2 and would die out completely if this “poison” was eliminated from the earth.
It is plain fascism, classic Hitlerjugend style.
Meanwhile, Obama says 'the time for talk is over' on the new $900bn US stimulus package. Yes, there's nothing to stimulate the economy like printing money; just ask the Weimar Germans and their wheelbarrows!
The Fed wants to STEAL even more, and the puppet politicians are doing their bidding and pushing these useless 'stimulus'/'bailout' packages, which is the reason this will be a world depression of the scale not seen in modern history.

So, this got me thinking. How much has a 'Russian Renaissance' occurred in the last decade? Or is China now the dominant player? How are things looking for America and Europe on the 'Grand Chessboard'?
(Image: Oil, the lifeblood of technological society. It gives us our best source of fuel, and is the basis for making plastics. It's not called 'black gold' for nothing!)The most important thing in this global power struggle is still resources. Land, people, but especially natural resources in general, and oil/gas in particular. Who controls the resources?
Well, the five 'giant' oil companies are all Western: Shell (Anglo-Dutch), Exxon Mobil (American), BP (British), Chevron Texaco (American), and Total (French).
These are private companies, of course, but many of the biggest oil powers are state-owned, including members of the OPEC trade agreement. One of the biggest powers in oil and gas is Russia, which "has the largest reserves, and is the largest exporter, of natural gas. It has the second largest coal reserves, and is the second largest exporter of oil."
This power was demonstrated during the recent dispute with the Ukraine over gas, during which Russia shut off supplies to much of Eastern Europe. So that's what people mean when they express concern over dependence on foreign energy!
The fact that the frontline of East-West relations is now inside the old Soviet bloc (Ukraine, Georgia) tells you something about American dominance at the end of the 20th Century.
But in this new century, Western power has been challenged by a combination of a stronger Russia and the new Chinese superpower, which is predicted to become the biggest world economy around 2025.
Another interesting case where a country has favoured the East over the West is Kazakhstan, home of Borat and (apparently) quite a lot of oil. This oil has mainly been exported to Western Europe and Russia, but China recently moved into the Kazakh oil export market, buying up 'oil interests' worth $4 billion.
Perhaps the greatest geopolitical risk to America in particular today, however, is not in natural resources but in finance. The dollar is depreciating relative to the euro and most other world currencies - perhaps China could start trading in euros instead of dollars, which would definitely harm the US economy. Though, writes Thomas Palley in The Guardian, China would suffer from any attempt to destabilise the American economy (the Fed and the Bailouts haven't done this already!?!)
Does all this geopolitics affect the ordinary people? Well, not a great deal if you live in a wealthy country. Just, try and tell those in the 'third world' that the geopolitical game between America and Russia (which never really stopped) is harmless. Korea, Vietnam, Cambodia, Afghanistan, countless African states have been ravaged by 'proxy' wars during the 'Cold War' and onwards, the best recent example being the Russia-Georgia conflict.
I am not an enthusiast for looking at the world through the lens of national politics and global trade. It tends to prevent us from identifying that the real rift is not between Europeans and Asians, Africans and Arabs, etc; but between British citizens and the owners of Shell; American citizens and the owners of Exxon, and so on.
That is not a wishy-washy Obama-style 'we are all equal' statement; nor is it a Marxist view of class struggle. It's simply a recognition that this global power game does not involve or relate to the average person, only to Rockefeller et al.
Unless you are in a 'developing' country sitting on natural resources - then of course it WILL involve you, like it or not. (Iraq, Iran, Sierra Leone, Nigeria, Angola, Congo, Sudan - on and on.)

And You Tell Me There's No Suppressed Technology?
It's another of those 'conspiracy theories' that good citizens don't notice. Imagine the standard of living if all the secret technology was released to the public...we'd be "free and independent" as JFK said! No more poverty anywhere! Can you imagine being sick enough to withhold such technology from society just to maintain your position of control? (Bearing in mind that we don't know just how much technological capability is being withheld, because, duh, it's secret.) What did Nikola Tesla really develop?
Individual Liberty? But that's "selfish"!
No, we need to look after each other voluntarily without having a government do all that at gunpoint. Sounds absurd at first but soon you realise that the reason it sounds so is because of the very unfree nature of our current existence. Envision greater possibilities! Ok, some kind of massive wake-up would be needed before this kind of free, responsible, uncontrollable society could emerge. And that's what we are seeing day by day in the world - a massive waking up of the previously enslaved masses (including myself I must add!)
