Top scientists start to examine fiddled global warming figures
By Christopher Booker
8:14PM BST 25 Apr 2015

Last month, we are told, the world enjoyed “its hottest March since records began in 1880”. This year, according to “US government scientists”, already bids to outrank 2014 as “the hottest ever”.

The figures from the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) were based, like all the other three official surface temperature records on which the world’s scientists and politicians rely, on... [Read More]

This topic has the right name, but its a goes to a couple of different issues of note.

I first heard about this only 2 months ago. Thought it would be something to keep an eye on - that it would take at least a year to really develop. Ha! (blew that one)

Where the problem starts:
The major governments of the world are all pretty much broke. In truth they're all swimming in debt. Also, they have done a good job of destroying the earning power of the main bill-payer, the middle class. Turns out, just like "You can't get blood out of a stone.", neither can you tax people who can't pay it.

Whats left? Well, if you can't get at non-existent earnings, you go after their savings, of... [Read More]

Obama Bans Military Equipment Provided To Police



18 MAY 2015

President Barack Obama is banning the federal government from providing some military-style equipment to local departments and putting stricter controls on other weapons and gear distributed to law enforcement.

Effective immediately, the federal government will no longer fund or provide armored vehicles that run on a tracked system instead of wheels, weaponized aircraft or vehicles, firearms or ammunition of .50-caliber or higher, grenade launchers, bayonets or camouflage uniforms.

The federal government also is exploring ways to... [Read More]

» ‘Gravity’ style threat to spacecraft.

Exploding satellite debris poses ‘Gravity’ style threat to spacecraft.

IN A scenario that eerily echoes the plot of ‘Gravity’, scientists claim the explosion of a satellite has left other spacecraft at risk from thousands of pieces of hurtling debris.

Researchers at the University of Southampton say the destruction of the US satellite has resulted in 50,000 pieces of debris, no bigger than the ball of a ballpoint pen, the London Telegraph reports.

When the US Defence Meteorological Satellite Program (DMSP) F13 satellite exploded on February 3, the large pieces of wreckage seen on radar were not considered a threat. The new research, however, suggests agencies failed to take into account tens of thousands of tiny... [Read More]

The Conference on the Israel Lobby

April 20 2015

by RALPH NADER

Following the heavy coverage of AIPAC’s (the virulently pro-Israeli government lobby) multi-day annual Washington convention in March, the mainstream media might have been interested for once in covering alternative viewpoints like those discussed at the April 10th conference “The Israel Lobby: Is it Good for the US? Is it Good for Israel?” (Israellobbyus.org). Fairness and balance in reporting should produce at least some coverage of such an event.

Organized by the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs, which was launched about thirty years ago... [Read More]
