Fox News should develop an alternative news source and drop AP. This one about the record heat looks identical to one getting printed all over the place, with a couple of word changes maybe, and maybe they got it from Live Science.

What should puzzle us, or get our suspicion antennae aquiver, is why, in a report about record heat, they didn’t even think about including a mention about the record sunspot energy this year:

At the next link, we find that back in March of 2006 NASA itself was saying that a solar maximum would probably start building in 2010 and 2011 and solar physicist David Hathaway says would most likely hit maximum during 2012 –this year of record heat:

From http://science.nasa.gov/science-news/science-at-nasa/2006/10mar_stormwarning/

“The top of the conveyor belt skims the surface of the sun, sweeping up the magnetic fields of old, dead sunspots. The ‘corpses’ are dragged down at the poles to a depth of 200,000 km where the sun’s magnetic dynamo can amplify them. Once the corpses (magnetic knots) are reincarnated (amplified), they become buoyant and float back to the surface.” Presto—new sunspots!

Right: The sun’s “great conveyor belt.” [Larger

]

All this happens with massive slowness. “It takes about 40 years for the belt to complete one loop,” says Hathaway. The speed varies “anywhere from a 50-year pace (slow) to a 30-year pace (fast).”

When the belt is turning “fast,” it means that lots of magnetic fields are being swept up, and that a future sunspot cycle is going to be intense. This is a basis for forecasting: “The belt was turning fast in 1986-1996,” says Hathaway. “Old magnetic fields swept up then should re-appear as big sunspots in 2010-2011.”

Like most experts in the field, Hathaway has confidence in the conveyor belt model and agrees with Dikpati that the next solar maximum should be a doozy. But he disagrees with one point. Dikpati’s forecast puts Solar Max at 2012. Hathaway believes it will arrive sooner, in 2010 or 2011.

“History shows that big sunspot cycles ‘ramp up’ faster than small ones,” he says. “I expect to see the first sunspots of the next cycle appear in late 2006 or 2007—and Solar Max to be underway by 2010 or 2011.”

Who’s right? Time will tell. Either way, a storm is coming.

Good smart and honest reporters should be laughing the latest attempt to blame carbon dioxide on Earth for record heat obviously coming from the sun itself.

No wonder the framers of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution held such high esteem for a truly educated and informed people.

The Liberty Movement is Growing Up

IF Romney does eventually actually clinch the nomination, there are a number of them that would vote for Romney just because they think they would have to if they want Obama‘s reign to end. Some of them still don’t fully understand all the issues but like Andrew Napolitano said, Ron Paul ‘is one of US“, meaning he’s not Establishment like any of the other candidates of either party.

Which he has NOT done yet, and by rule 38 might not even when he gets the count. Ron Paul will at least speak at the convention, and his delegates will be heard. With all the misreporting about Doug Wead‘s statement about putting their money where it counts most, that also seems to have jolted RP supporters awake –those who didn’t realize it yet– that the whole thing is now independent of the RP campaign personnel, and it no longer depends on Ron Paul.

There are liberty candidates all over the nation, gaining nominations and elections to local and state offices, and taking over the Republican Party.

Personally, I think America is going to suffer very hard for all its sins, beginning with “the house of God” where the slip-slide started, most especially when the dollar crash actually hits. When it does there will be pain, and RP has made clear that his goal if he doesn’t actually become president (and maybe if he does) is (1) try to get legislation passed to ameliorate the disaster by legalizing freedom of choice of currency, and (2) make sure as many people as possible understand WHY and HOW it happened.

Number (2) is crucial, because when people lose one of their two cars or when food really is scarce, or when the government cannot guarantee freebies anymore, there will be a lot of anger. But if enough people understand the principle of liberty and what I call “Golden Rule Government”, we’ll get through it a lot easier because they will not be fooled by the demagoguery of “social justice” or induced to demand theft by “entitlements”.

One Zionist Israeli settler speaks out about America and Iran

May 23, 2012

Far from me to say Dick understands anything about Iran or about foreign policy, since he also doesn’t understand that sanctions easily fall under the category of “acts of war” themselves, and more often than not cause a blowback effect like that of war:

But at the settlerofsamaria.org website you can read what a Zionist settler says about Iran and sanctions and aid to Israel:
http://settlersofsamaria.org/vote-ron-paul-free-israel/

Vote Ron Paul and let my people go once again! Stop meddling here and stop trying to buy influence by giving me money. Stop trying to be the all powerful Peace Maker and let us work out the problems here on our own! If we think Iran is a threat, we can handle it and we’ll take the consequences. It’s not America’s problem and you can’t afford another war.

Now repeat after me (him): “If we think Iran is a threat, we can handle it and we’ll take the consequences. It’s not America’s problem and you can’t afford another war.”

Rafi Farber lives in “Samaria” (that’s occupied Syrian land by the way) and he also manages the “World of Judaica” website:
http://www.worldofjudaica.com/

What I question is they hypocrisy of many who claim they are for peace in the Middle East and question supposedly “pro-Israel” positions. George W Bush dictated at Israel just as much as Obama does.

Were they bothered by Clinton’s bomb-throwing at pharmaceutical factories in the Sudan and some hillside in Afghanistan, or his bombing of civilians in Serbia and later the civilian caravans of “Kosovars”? No, they cheered wildly when Obama sent bombs raining on Libya, and when it didn’t work fast enough because so many Libyans loved him so much and enthusiastically went to the front to defend him, they started demanding more bombs and even ground troops.

And they themselves demanded that we throw away our own natural rights by shredding the constitutional ban on wars without declarations of war from Congress.

But maybe we’re just jaded, and our brain cells faded.

Demagogues, and how the Fed and the income tax rob from the poor and middle class

February 27, 2012

http://www.nationalreview.com/blogs/print/291610
http://tinyurl.com/6mfn4tp

High tax rates in the upper income brackets allow politicians to win votes with class-warfare rhetoric, painting their opponents as defenders of the rich. Meanwhile, the same politicians can win donations from the rich by creating tax loopholes that can keep the rich from actually paying those higher tax rates — or perhaps any taxes at all.”


This is why fiat currency is the road to ruin. Even when the Fed does what their publicly stated purpose is to stabilize the dollar and maintain full employment, but they have a whole list now of other functions. Like being clearinghouse for inter-bank loans and balance reconciliation, and other things.

Here’s the difference between fiat and independent currency. If the politicians had to deal with real genuine money, with independent value, they couldn’t get enough to do what they want to do, it would be a lot harder to do it. So it’s easier to “borrow” it from the Fed, which is glad to create an accounting entry in the Treasury for, say a trillion dollars, add the trillion dollars to its “receivables” and start the interest clock, and voila the taxpayer has been had.

Not only is he on hock for future income to repay it (or his children) but assuming the cycle just continues and rolls over into another loan, it’s still more money circulating.

Meantime they had to couple that with the income tax. That way the same politicians can pretend they’re robbing the rich when in fact they’re robbing the poor and middle class. They can also pretend they’re helping the poor with that deficit money (never money they’re putting money in one pocket and taking the value right out of the other one by just “printing” money), while in fact the poor are paying taxes at gas pumps, in their rent, and in the INCOME THEY DO NOT MAKE because the income tax is swallowing up the extra dough in the money supply and circulating it in federal budgets.

And then the tighter regulations on banks to act rationally is acting to shrink up the M3 money supply.

The Fed hasn’t published M3 figures for years, saying it’s too “complicated”, but more likely they know the sheer size would scare Americans into giving the most massive political beating to their politicians in history.

It’s too complicated to calculate the money supply but Washington claims they can manage the economy??

You want clean energy? Enivro-money is ignoring the best clean energy tech

There is an energy technology with wildly astronomical potential for perfectly clean energy that costs almost nothing at all per unit compared to the tricky political control schemes cooked up by the control freaks that use the environment farce like a club:

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) About New Energy Science and Technology:

Check it out:

This Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) covers basic queries about New Energy science and developing technologies. The revolutionary New Energy field concerns spectacular new sources of energy that have achieved substantial validation in laboratories around the world, but which are not yet accepted by the scientific establishment. We welcome you to make your own judgment about what constitutes substantial validation and why the scientific establishment does not yet accept New Energy in its various forms, but please do perform your own examination of the important evidence that is gathered at this and other referenced New Energy websites and publications. Despite the great accomplishments of modern official science, we have concluded that its organizations and journals are significantly mired in obsolete science and technology paradigms that are holding back progress; we hope that you will come to appreciate this. (If, in fact, that is not your opinion already!) The existence of New Energy R&D around the world and its under-reporting and mis-characterization by the “mainstream” scientific media is evidence of a profound paradigm paralysis.

If you are new to the New Energy field, you may find the information here particularly helpful. We will continue to review and modify this FAQ to include responses to common questions from our visitors. If you have a question and the answer isn’t here, please ask us and we’ll try to answer you if the question brings up new thoughts not already addressed in this FAQ. Please understand that we cannot respond to all of our e-mail, due to limited staff time!

Syria: Rebels may be more dangerous for Christians and Jews than Assad

February 19, 2012

I saw this piece calling for action by the United States to intervene in Syria on behalf of the rebels there fighting Assad, and find below my reply:

http://sharinhislove.wordpress.com/2012/02/18/time-is-running-out-according-to-bible-prophecy/

He that passeth by, [and] meddleth with strife [belonging] not to him, [is like] one that taketh a dog by the ears. (Proverbs 26:17)

Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them (Matthew 7:20)

The only thing that American interventionism in the Middle East conflicts has done, and supporting these “uprisings”, is to make the world safer for much worse atrocities against Christians and Jews in these countries, where the Muslim Brotherhood is beginning to find common cause with al-Qaeda operatives and organizers.

Already the new Egyptian rulers have repudiated the peace treaty with Israel. Iraq is more dangerous for Christians and Jews than it ever was under Saddam Hussein.

Speaking of Syrian massacres, black Christians and Muslims in Libya have been slaughtered literally by the tens of thousands by these “freedom fighters” who are supported by the U.S. and the West! Including one town of 10,000 blacks, genocided, and where this new invading army totally obliterated all the physical structures of the town to prevent it from being ever rebuilt and to erase its memory. In one of their leaders’ words: “The town of Tawerga is no more”.

A lot of the black martyrs have crosses cut into their dead bodies, like in the recent genocide in Sudan.

He that answereth a matter before he heareth [it], it [is] folly and shame unto him. – Proverbs 18:3

Our black president has supported a genocide against blacks in Libya.

And now, the rebels in Syria are engaging in full-scale pitched battles with the Assad government, and they are getting lots of arms pouring in from somewhere, in yet another under-reported development, strangely missing from the Western press. It’s more like a civil war. This time, NATO has learned a PR lesson and they are supporting the rebellion quietly, a rebellion full of al-Qaeda operatives and Israel-haters and Christian-haters.

To fight these wars, America, and the West, must rely on Money Changers at the Federal Reserve, because they know that no matter how much military budget there is, the Fed will back it with “quantitative easing” which means “printing e-money”, which is a false balance. Because when they do they are robbing value from the money held by the poor and middle class.

15 years of global cooling and counting

Forget global warming – it’s Cycle 25 we need to worry about (and if NASA scientists are right the Thames will be freezing over again) | Mail Online:

Anybody can see that the sun overwhelms everything men can do in the space of 12 hours! The temperature fluctuates with differences of anywhere from 10 to 20 to 50 degrees in ONE DAY, actually HALF a day, just by whether it’s facing the sun or turned away from the sun!

Of course the sun is the overwhelming influence on the climate!

Heat and carbon dioxide are fantastic for plant growth!

Sixteen very prominent scientists have signed a letter published by the Wall Street Journal demolishing the call for killing the economy with decarbonization in the name of global warming:

Sixteen Concerned Scientists: No Need to Panic About Global Warming – WSJ
http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052970204301404577171531838421366.html

Editor’s Note: The following has been signed by the 16 scientists listed at the end of the article:

A candidate for public office in any contemporary democracy may have to consider what, if anything, to do about “global warming.” Candidates should understand that the oft-repeated claim that nearly all scientists demand that something dramatic be done to stop global warming is not true. In fact, a large and growing number of distinguished scientists and engineers do not agree that drastic actions on global warming are needed.

In September, Nobel Prize-winning physicist Ivar Giaever, a supporter of President Obama in the last election, publicly resigned from the American Physical Society (APS) with a letter that begins: “I did not renew [my membership] because I cannot live with the [APS policy] statement: ‘The evidence is incontrovertible: Global warming is occurring. If no mitigating actions are taken, significant disruptions in the Earth’s physical and ecological systems, social systems, security and human health are likely to occur. We must reduce emissions of greenhouse gases beginning now.’ In the APS it is OK to discuss whether the mass of the proton changes over time and how a multi-universe behaves, but the evidence of global warming is incontrovertible?”

In spite of a multidecade international campaign to enforce the message that increasing amounts of the “pollutant” carbon dioxide will destroy civilization, large numbers of scientists, many very prominent, share the opinions of Dr. Giaever. And the number of scientific “heretics” is growing with each passing year. The reason is a collection of stubborn scientific facts.

Perhaps the most inconvenient fact is the lack of global warming for well over 10 years now. This is known to the warming establishment, as one can see from the 2009 “Climategate” email of climate scientist Kevin Trenberth: “The fact is that we can’t account for the lack of warming at the moment and it is a travesty that we can’t.” But the warming is only missing if one believes computer models where so-called feedbacks involving water vapor and clouds greatly amplify the small effect of CO2.

Bully for them. Read the article. A new blow to Orwellian thought-control myths.

Megaupload Details Raise Significant Concerns About What DOJ Considers Evidence Of Criminal Behavior | Techdirt

January 25, 2012

A friend in a forum of one of my subscriptions posted this link and a quote from it:

Megaupload Details Raise Significant Concerns About What DOJ Considers Evidence Of Criminal Behavior | Techdirt:

http://www.techdirt.com/articles/20120120/00373617487/megaupload-details-raise-significant-concerns-about-what-doj-considers-evidence-criminal-behavior.shtml http://tinyurl.com/7exdahn

Comment: “Mega is no Saint that is for sure but I worry that this is only the beginning.I have no trust and pretty much zero approval of this Government and this Government has shown itself to be liars,hypocrites,and money takers.If you ask me I will state that Washington is full of worse crooks than Megaupload…”

I think maybe the author doesn’t quite get a finger on the essence of what is really bothering him.

It used to be that it was just specific actions that were said to be illegal, and you did it or you didn’t. Now there are “intentions” that are illegal. Certain patterns of bank withdrawals that are around say $9,000, was used as “proof” that somebody was avoiding the reporting requirement that forces banks to report any withdrawal of amounts exceeding $10,000. The pattern itself was defined in court as proof enough, by itself, of the crime of intentionally withdrawing less than $10,000.  This should be no business of the government.

but with some of the legislation of recent decades especially, ambiguity rules and too much power is given to enforcers this way. Too many petty mini-dictatorships with too many little government fiefdoms that arbitrarily make life miserable for any given citizen, all in the name of “protecting” the citizens.

In this case, it just looks like a little of this and a little of that and a little bit of mind-reading and it adds up to criminal infringement even though each particular item in the list when taken alone is legal. Presumably that’s why it’s described as “evidence”, not a factual lawbreaking. So what is the actual illegal act that was done that does not depend on a list of legal activities?
