Apparently the science surrounding alleged anthropogenic (man-made) global warming (AGW) is not really so settled after all. In a barely noticed statement released last week, NASA dropped the equivalent of a nuclear bomb on the United Nations climate-alarmism machine, noting that ice across Antarctica has been growing at break-neck speed for decades. The surging ice growth, of course, directly contradicts the predictions of global-warming alarmists, including a 2013 report by the increasingly discredited UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change claiming, falsely as it turns out, that Antarctica was losing ice and causing rising sea levels.
While most of the press has focused on Obama's military machinations in Afghanistan, Syria, and Iraq, the administration has also been quietly expanding its secret wars and assassination programs across Africa.
Quick, do something! There are John Birch Society types ready to spread “conspiracy theories” from the “margins” into the “mainstream,” and they seem to be hiding under practically every bed in America! At least that's the impression given in a new “intelligence report” by the far-left Southern Poverty Law Center, an organization whose slanderous vitriol against conservatives may have sparked a recent federal terrorism case. In its report the SPLC reputedly aims to expose false conspiracy theories that are being churned out by right-wing radicals. But, ironically, while expressing outrage over “conspiracy theories” on the “right,” the SPLC report sounded like an expanded version of Hillary Clinton's bizarre conspiracy theory about a “vast right-wing conspiracy.” To hear the SPLC tell it, practically everyone in America to the right of Obama is participating in a giant conspiracy to spread conspiracy theories. For what purpose is never explained, although apparently it is all very bad for “democracy.”
ALMERIA, Spain — As humanity increasingly loses faith in debt-backed fiat currencies run by opaque central banks and corrupt governments, the city of Barcelona, Spain, is the latest to announce plans to try something new — a local currency. The goal of the proposed alternative monetary system, according to local officials, is to stimulate business in the city and surrounding areas, especially local small and medium businesses still reeling from the economic crisis that ravaged the nation in recent years. With over three million people in Barcelona, it could become the largest experiment of its kind, according to analysts. But not everybody is convinced, with some commentators suspecting ulterior motives.
Former United Kingdom Prime Minister Tony Blair apologized for “mistakes” surrounding the Iraq war, and admitted that the controversial regime-change operation helped spawn the rise of the savage Islamic State (ISIS).
The United Nations, often ridiculed as the “dictators club” by critics, is actually the “Parliament of Humanity” and “a beacon for all humanity,” declared UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon in statements celebrating UN Day on the 70th anniversary of the global outfit's founding. In a bizarre speech given in New York City amid the controversial celebrations, the UN boss even went perilously close to deifying the scandal-plagued organization he leads, claiming it brings hope, peace, security, and sustenance to the world. He also said humanity has a duty to unite behind the UN and its blue flag. The dangerous implications of turning the dictator-dominated UN into a global parliament, though, were left unaddressed.
In her latest round of testimony on the Benghazi attack that left four Americans dead, Hillary Clinton, secretary of state at the time of the attack, was exposed as a liar. But she was careful to avoid any “serious” scrutiny of the 800-pound gorilla in the room: the Obama administration's widely reported gun-running programs for jihadists battling former U.S. government terror-war allies in Libya and Syria. When questioned, Clinton denied any knowledge of such a program, only to be confronted with an e-mail in which she proposed doing precisely that via proxies. Indeed, the fact that Obama has been arming jihadists in Syria is today beyond dispute.
With the electoral defeat this week of conservative Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper and his more liberty-oriented party, tax-funded global-warming theorists and the governments that support them breathed a sigh of relief. Now, with Harper and his recently ousted Australian counterpart out of the way, analysts say the United Nations and its mostly autocratic members have a better chance of success.
In honor of United Nations Day and the 70th anniversary of the UN's founding, more than 200 iconic monuments and buildings around the world will be lit up in the color “UN blue,” the controversial global organization announced this week. Among the famous sites set to turn blue on October 24 to honor the UN are Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro, the Empire State Building in New York, the Great Pyramids at Giza in Egypt, Sydney's Opera House, Westminster Hall in the United Kingdom, the Great Wall of China, and hundreds of other globally recognized landmarks across more than 60 nations. The theme of the festivities, UN officials said, is the notion that a “strong UN” will somehow produce a “better world.”
The Obama administration's increasingly controversial Justice Department, in partnership with the ultra-leftist Southern Poverty Law Center, announced the creation of a new czar position to focus on “domestic terrorism” — especially the alleged threat from Christians and Americans with “anti-government” views. While ostensibly created to serve as a coordination office overseeing domestic terror cases, critics and analysts are sounding the alarm, warning that the administration is plotting to go after its political opponents with the full force of the federal government.
