Get Ready for Way Global Cool Winter

And Only One Iddy-Biddy Sunspot!!

Some recent news clips, as posted to the "No Pasaran" website:

Snow fell as the House of Commons debated Global Warming yesterday - the first October fall in the metropolis since 1922. The Mother of Parliaments was discussing the Mother of All Bills for the last time, in a marathon six hour session.


According to MeteoNews, the Swiss lowlands received the most snow for any October since records began in 1931. Zurich received 20cm, beating a record of 14cm set in 1939.


Though there was a reading of freezing or below throughout northwest Marion County, Wednesday morning's official low temperature was 33 degrees.

It was a record for Oct. 29 and the second lowest temperature ever recorded in October since 1850.


The death toll has risen to seven, and one person remains missing, as a result of the worst snowstorm on record in Tibet, the local authority said on Thursday.


A low of 40 degrees early Wednesday is expected to shatter a 1957 record for Oct. 29 of 48 degrees , said Mike Cantin, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service.

Record Snow blankets London for Global Warming debate

Snow blankets London for Global Warming debate
How Parliament passed the Climate Bill
By Andrew Orlowski
29th October 2008 12:35 GMT

Snow fell as the House of Commons debated Global Warming yesterday - the first October fall in the metropolis since 1922. The Mother of Parliaments was discussing the Mother of All Bills for the last time, in a marathon six hour session.

In order to combat a projected two degree centigrade rise in global temperature, the Climate Change Bill pledges the UK to reduce its carbon dioxide emissions by 80 per cent by 2050. The bill was receiving a third reading, which means both the last chance for both democratic scrutiny and consent.

The bill creates an enormous bureaucratic apparatus for monitoring and reporting, which was expanded at the last minute. Amendments by the Government threw emissions from shipping and aviation into the monitoring program, and also included a revision of the Companies Act (c. 46) "requiring the directors' report of a company to contain such information as may be specified in the regulations about emissions of greenhouse gases from activities for which the company is responsible" by 2012.

Recently the American media has begun to notice the odd incongruity of saturation media coverage here which insists that global warming is both man-made and urgent, and a British public which increasingly doubts either to be true. 60 per cent of the British population now doubt the influence of humans on climate change, and more people than not think Global Warming won't be as bad "as people say".

No Honest MSM Critique of Obama

Barack Hussein Obama:
Consensus Illusions Versus Dangerous Documented History

by James DeMeo, Ph.D.

The articles below, and the documentary weblinks, raise serious questions about the favorite candidate for US President, Barack Hussein Obama.  I assembled this material only after observing what a terrible job the mainstream news media (MSM) was doing in regards to investigating the background and activities of Obama.  I believe this is due to a shared radical-left and Islamist agenda on the part of this same news media and much of the academic world, something which appeared in American society increasingly after around 1960, intensifying as the USA and its allies were seriously confronted with a growing and well-funded Islamic threat.

In this discussion, I will steer clear of policy matters, like health care, economy and so on.  I have my own opinions on that, but the issues presented here are more substantial, having to do with lies, dirty-tricks and deception by Obama and his cadres of supporters, and by those who are manipulating his candidacy, and his person, from behind the scenes.  Personally I feel Hillary Clinton would have been the better candidate for the Democratic Party, and while like McCain-Palin, she is a flawed character, I do believe in the main there is no larger hidden agenda with any of the other candidates, as what is now documented with Obama.

Another issue implicitly raised in this essay is the added MSM deception and covering-up for what appears to be a terribly radical agenda, an agenda filled with hatred towards mainstream America, and Americans, which in my opinion puts the nation and its existing freedoms at risk.  One also should be aware, that many or all of the internet "fact-checker" websites are pretty much shilling for Obama, delivering a message that mirrors what the Obama campaign puts out, and basically restating their message that any strong criticism of him is "a lie", no matter what the evidence.  A websearch on this topic alone will produce many examples and critiques of sites such as "", a favorite watering-hole for committed Obama supporters.

Once before in American history we got close to having a closeted Communist Party agent gain the presidency, in the person of Henry A. Wallace, the running mate to Franklin Roosevelt during his last term. His own radical agendas exposed him before he could gain power, however, and he was replaced by Harry Truman, who later became President when Roosevelt died.  As noted below, Obama was once a member of a Socialist party offshoot of the American Communist Party, something he denies, but which was fully exposed about, and the evidence against him has grown and grown to the point where I find it impossible to merely sit by quietly, watching as so many people behave like Lemmings headed over a cliff.  The newspapers are fully silent on these matters, ignoring the evidence even as they ridicule people who dare to present it.  I've kept silent on this until today, assembling some of the major points at issue.  They are current, and accurate, and each item I reference below, and also in the appended list of weblinks, has its own additional referential weblinks.  It is stunning material, and the interested reader who is new to this material will want to follow-up on the references, where more detail is available.  Especially Europeans will find this material of interest, because the blackout of facts about Obama is particularly stunning overseas.  If he loses the election -- and he may well lose in spite of some potentially manufactured and heavily biased poll data -- then what is given below is the reason why.  If he wins, then past behavior predicts future behavior, and we will probably see major social explosions as the enemies of freedom around the world will have properly seen the new American President as being in alliance with their agendas.

Obama's Friendship with, and Support To Raila Odinga, a Marxist, Islam-Friendly African Tyrant

The worst of Mr. Obama's background issues, which has almost totally been concealed by the MSM, or deliberately spun to put a smiley-face on it, is the Odinga affair, where Obama went to Kenya in 2006 and openly supported a brutal fanatic who was a distant cousin from his Luo Tribe.  Obama made public appearances and speeches on his behalf, trying to help the Marxist Odinga get elected -- Odinga attended an East German university and is so committed to totalitarian communist ideology that named his son after Fidel Castro. Obama basically interfered with the Kenyan election to the point that the Kenyan government made a public statement calling Obama a "stooge for Odinga" and telling him to basically "keep out" of their electoral process.  Obama had not only spoken in favor of Odinga, but also heaped scorn on the democratically-elected government of Kenya, stating "The [Kenyan] people have to suffer over corruption perpetrated by government officials... Kenyans are now yearning for change".

YouTube carries some of these Obama speeches in Kenya. Here is one which details the clearly Red Fascist background of Odinga, who surely could never be mistaken for anything but a brutal communist thug seeking power by any means.  Obama nevertheless supported him, and even raised $1 million for his campaign.  After that election, Kenyans got "change", but not what they expected.   It became public, for example, that Odinga had signed a "Memorandum of Understanding" (MOU) with Kenyan Islamic groups, that once elected he would use his influence to institute Islamic Sharia Law across Kenya, suppressing all other religions, and bringing the veil, banishment of alcohol and pork, and other strict Islamic measures.  This revelation came when one of the Mullahs in on the betrayal of freedom held a press conference, happily announcing the previously secret deal.  They were angry that they could not, under the Kenyan Constitution, simply invoke Sharia Law, and also angry that Muslims had been arrested in Kenya for terrorist acts --  as with the bombing of the US Embassy in Kenya, the bombing of a hotel in Nairobi frequented by Israeli tourists, and an attempt to shoot down an El Al civilian jet plane with a missile.  Muslim jihad violence has been on a steady increase across East Africa.

Odinga signed the MOU to get the Muslim vote, but it did not help, and he lost the election by several hundred thousand votes.  Within hours of the election results, Odinga called for his supporters to engage in street protests, which predictably degenerated into street riots.  Muslim and Luo sects attacked the opposition party supporters, notably those of the Kikuyu tribe, with machetes and torches, hacking people to death and burning over 500 churches, including one with 50 Christian women and children deliberately locked inside, burning them to death. The mobs destroyed and looted homes and businesses, and murdered around 1000 people while hundreds of thousands fled from their homes and subsequently live as refugees.  Worse, Odinga continued to push for sharing of power, in spite of losing the election, and in spite of the massive slaughter and violence of his followers.

In a forced "peace deal" brokered by the ineffectual team of  former UN President Kofi Anan and US Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice, both of whom have been exceptionally Islam-friendly during their tenures, Obama's buddy-cousin Odinga was rewarded for his butchery with the Prime Minister's Office in Kenya, basically for agreeing to stop the killing.  He shot his way into power after losing the election, and got an approving pat on the back from the UN and Bush people, a stunning situation which basically overthrows Kenyan democracy.  Odinga denies he has interests to promote Sharia Law, and there are various claims made of phoney documents being circulated by Odinga's enemies.  But too much of the events were captured on videotape, and whereas at one point the Memorandum of Understanding was a major issue, the bigger one which everyone apologetic about Odinga ignores -- and it is being ignored for the sake of one Barack Hussein Obama -- is the mass-murder which took place on the streets of Kenyan cities after Odinga lost, and then openly called for his supporters to make trouble.  But it gets worse.

One Obama-critical author, Dr. Jerome Corsi, recently traveled to Kenya and obtained documentation of the on-going Odinga-Obama relationship, showing that Obama continued to have on-going email contacts with Odinga, giving him advice from his Senate office in Washington DC.  Additional information was obtained indicating that Obama had donated $950,000 to the Odinga election campaign, a sum even greater than what was given to Odinga from Libyan dictator and terrorist Mohamar Gaddafi.  Corsi planned a press conference in Kenya, to expose this explosive material, but it was disrupted when Kenyan government officials carrying machine-guns abducted him just before it was to start, and kept him incognito for a day before his release was obtained by bribing the officials. He was told "See you in Hell" by the Kenyan guards, just before getting on a jet back to London.  Corsi is hated by the Obama camp, as his book "The Obama Nation" exposes very much of the same material contained in this essay, with much greater detail, and it has become a best-seller.  While a small number of peripheral points in Corsi's book have been refuted by the Obama camp, the bulk of it remains unchallenged, and remains a shocking testament to how badly the US news media has abandoned its responsibilities to seriously review and check-out such a top-candidate for Office of the President, in efforts to get elected someone who so nicely matches their very liberal biases about "what the country needs".

Obama's Troops: ACORN Partners Stuffing Ballot Boxes, Crushing Free Speech

The second worst point of MSM silence is Obama's long association with the radical-left ACORN group of "community organizers" whose major "organizing" effort seems to be instigating massive voter fraud and socialist re-education schemes.  They "organize" neighborhood meetings and stir up attitudes of victimization and hatred of white Americans among the disaffected youth and inner-city black poor, in a manner reminiscent of the Rev. Wright's violently screaming sermons (which Obama and his wife slept through, and never heard, over 20 years) about "God Damn America" and "the US of KKKA", "AIDS was Invented to Kill Black People", "911 Was an Inside Job", etc.  ACORN is now under criminal investigations in 11 different states for untold thousands of phoney and illegal voter registrations, such as registering massive numbers of illegal aliens, convicted felons and prisoners, homeless people from shelters, people in adjacent states, and dead people to vote in what appears to be a well-planned effort to steal the elections in states where slim margins separate the candidates.  The situation of voter fraud is shaping up to be far worse than anything seen during the Bush-Gore election, and in this case it is all deliberated and calculated -- and all working to skew the results in favor of Obama.

Obama's campaign gave ACORN at least $800,000 which seems like a pay-off to stuff the ballot boxes in his favor.  The Obama campaign says, this is "much ado about nothing", that Obama has not "really" worked with ACORN, in spite of documentation clearly showing a long-time relationship.   Again, little or nothing of this has appeared in the MSM, except to denounce as "fear-mongers" or "racists" anyone who dares to bring up the subject.  But the extent of the voter fraud perpetrated by ACORN is today so widespread and extensive, so endangering of the upcoming elections, that the problem cannot be simply ignored -- even the MSM is finally taking note, and reporting on it, though to my knowledge without much discussion of Obama's funding or connections.

From Hillary backers, we have reports of Obama's "get out the vote" campaigns working with ACORN to stuff ballot boxes, and even bring in bus-loads of Obama supporters across state lines to illegally vote in caucus primary elections.  By such dirty-tricks and illegal tactics, Obama managed to wrestle victories in regions which by all other indications were fully behind Hillary.  These facts also did not get out into the MSM, but help us to understand the outrage and fury of so many Hillary supporters.

We are seeing other dirty-tricks being performed by the Obama devotees, as when they attacked a radio station for daring to interview an author critical of Obama.   Or when Obama's legal team threatened lawsuits against TV stations which dared to run factual ads exposing his checkered background and activities.  The most recent outrage along these lines is, that Team Obama have somehow got the ear of the top brass at Google, suppressing Google Sponsored Ads which are critical of Obama, and instead showing only the ads which link to his own websites, emphasizing his nominally Christian credentials.  Try it yourself with a Google search for "Obama's Muslim Background"  The only sponsored ads which appear will link to the Obama website.  All others, formerly present, are today gone.  Presumably they would like to have the larger Google Search itself suppress the critical information, and yield only the Obama-friendly websites.  In another notable case, Obama campaign workers made false accusations of death-threats against Obama, claiming people who were critical of his policy issues and deceptions had made threats, with the goal of having those persons investigated by the FBI, and thereby silenced.  Obama supporters have also recently threatened violent riots, or even a "race war" if Obama does not win.  But it also seems similar riots might occur if he wins.  Overall it gives the impression of a distressing turn towards criminal fanaticism within the Obama camp, in a manner more typically associated with supporters of dictators like Chavez or Mugabe.  But, then, didn't Obama say he would be happy to meet with such thugs?  Is this because of some new approach to American foreign policy, as he claims, or more because those are just "his kind of guy"?

Is this the "change" Obama has in store for America?  A liberal thugocracy? Like when liberal Google partnered with Communist China to block websites critical of Communist Party thuggery and genocide, and inform on dissident bloggers so the Chi-Coms could put them into prison?  Nancy Pelosi has already indicated that, with Obama as President, and with a Democratic Party majority in both houses of Congress, she will swiftly move on the "Fairness Doctrine" legislation, an Orwellian bill that would have government bureaucrats spy on who says what on television, radio, and internet, thereafter forcing "opposing views" to be given.  This won't happen on the liberal TV news, such as ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN or BBC, as the law is structured only to attack conservative voices, as found on talk-radio.  We might also see, for similar reasons, an approval of "hate speech" legislation against making open criticisms of Islam, something the UN and many liberal-left Democratic Party people have felt was a good thing.  Canada already has such a law, and their "Human Rights Council" has dragged authors and publishers before its Star Chamber to demand subordination to State Power on who can say what.  It had a chilling effect upon other authors and publishers, who now routinely must ask, what will clear the Left-Wing and Islamic Censor's Office.  This article might be forbidden under such legislation, for example.

Obama's Socialist Terrorist Friends

The picture gets even more bleak when considering Obama's relations to various other America-haters, black racists, and even confessed and unrepentant Weather Underground terror bombers and murderers like Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dorn with whom Obama (and his wife Michelle) had a very long and intimate relationship.  These are not casual acquaintances, as the Obamas claim.  Most people will today know about the Reverend Wright of Obama's Trinity Church in Chicago, an evil man whose career is founded upon hatred of white people and Jews.  His church even printed copies of the Hamas Charter calling for the destruction of Israel. Wright and Farrakhan made a widely-published junket trip to Libya, amid an atmosphere of America-hatred.  A simple YouTube search of "Rev. Wright" will pull up a ton of his "greatest video clips" which were sold openly in the lobby of that church (a few notable ones are posted below), available right next to the free Trinity-Hamas Newsletter... but of course the Obamas "knew nothing about it", even though B. H. Obama dedicated his book to Wright and Wright married the radical couple.

But as with Wright, Odinga and ACORN, Obama downplays or outright lies about his even more alarming relationships to Ayers and Dorn, calling Ayers "just a guy in the neighborhood" when in fact they shared time on foundation boards, exchanged massive amounts of money between the various organizations they ran, and coordinated policy decisions within those foundations -- which also are very Marxist in orientations.  Obama basically launched his political career among the hard-left ACORN-Wright people in the Chicago area, at a special private dinner party hosted at the home of Ayers and Dorn.  Obama was in working relations with Ayers or Dorn at the time when, shortly after 911, the terror-twins were interviewed and said they wished they only "could have done more" terror-destruction and murder (7 people were killed by their Weather Underground) to destroy America.  Their plans at the time included Soviet-style gulag death-camps across the USA, into which they (Ayers, et al) estimated at least 25 million ordinary Americans would be exterminated in order to establish their Socialist Paradise.  Ayers and Dorn also wrote a book, while on the run from the law, entitled "Prairie Fire: The Politics of Revolutionary Anti-Imperialism"  They dedicated the book to Sirhan Sirhan, the man who assassinated Bobby Kennedy.  While all that was at the time when Obama was a child, the fact that Ayers republished this book in 2006 (under the new title "Sing a Battle Song"), with the same dedication to a terror-murderer, indicates Ayers had not changed his character or views in the slightest all the way down into the times when he had a lengthy professional relationship with Obama.   During the post-911 interview which was widely published, Ayers was photographed wiping his feet on an American flag, openly showing hatred and contempt for the USA.  Obama knew Ayers and worked with him over this entire later period.  But Obama's lying about Ayers really becomes stunning when one considers that Obama wrote and published a glowing review for one of Ayer's books, and in that book Ayer's mentions Obama favorably, noting that he and Obama, and Louis Farrakhan, all lived within a block of each other in the same Chicago gated-community neighborhood.

Obama's staff and handlers also have made their own meetings with Islamic terror groups such as Hamas, and Jew-hating Saudis like Khalid al-Mansour, who appear to have financed some of Obama's early years.  Obama covers up these associations by firing his staff members when they accidentally spill the beans, but he then replaces them with like-minded people, and the same kind of thing quickly happens all over again.  He waffles about Israel, declaring greater support for Israel on one day, and greater support for the Palestinians on another.  And judging from his own official website, which allows user commentary, Obama seems surrounded by America-haters, Jew haters, and friends of Muslim terrorists.  Obama could have stopped all this hate-speech on his website in a heart-beat, but allows it to go on and on.  Are these his most loyal base?  Is this what he really believes, behind the grinning mask?

It appears so.  New evidence recently emerged, that Obama was a member of the Communist-Party offshoot "New Party" in the USA, something which he emphatically denied over many months.  However, old copies of the New Party newspaper show Obama prominently, and reveal his lying, that he is or was a member of the New Party -- along with a long list of other America-haters and haters of Americans.

Obama and Rezko, and All The Rest

Then there is Obama's past association with Tony Rezko, the Syrian-born criminal now facing hard prison time and spilling the beans to prosecutors abou the same kind of Chicago-Mob politics which stands behind Obama, the same criminal who helped finance Obama's first election and gave him a "sweet deal" on the purchase of his expensive home.  The revelations from that alone would destroy most candidates for high office, but in this case it has again been ignored or downplayed by the Obama-worshiping MSM and the full facts may not emerge until after the elections.  More troubling are Rezko's continuing big-money dealings within the Islamic world.,tony-rezko-obama-election-101108.article

Obama seems to orient himself with Islamic personalities and agendas, even selecting as his own foreign policy advisor the old Jimmy Carter National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski, an Israel-hater who more than anyone was responsible for Iran being handed back to the Ayatollah Khomeini, something about which he foresaw "no problem".  Millions paid with their lives for that arrogant stupidity.  Taken with all the other Obama-Islam connections, the dealings with Rezko hardly seem like a merely "bone-headed" accident, as Obama states.

But in spite of all these well-documented connections and working relationships to a rather large basket of haters, traitors, murderers and criminals, Obama claims he hardly knew any of them, like he was Alice in Wonderland just innocently walking through the forest and accidentally stumbling over them, one after another:  Tony Rezko, Odinga, the Rev. Wright, and even the fanatic Jew-hater and black-Muslim fascist Louis Farrakhan.  Obama admitted to attending the Farrakhan "Million Man March" in 1995, but did not get around to making any public opinion about Farrakhan until being pressed about it by Hillary Clinton, during the Democratic Primary Debates.  He then denounced Farrakhan's Jew-hatred, but he ducks the question if he ever met or knows Farrakhan -- another "guy next door".  We do know, that his long-time mentor Rev. "God Damn America" Wright went on a junket trip to Libya with Farrakhan, at a time when Farrakhan was going to collect multi-million-dollar checks from the Libyan dictator and terrorist.  Farrakhan recently publicly declared Obama "The Messiah"!  And Gaddafi publicly supports Obama, even claiming that Obama is a Muslim, and that Islamic money helps to support him.  True or not, we must ask why it is that Obama is supported by every kind and strip of fascist and totalitarian thug on the planet:  Chavez, Gaddafi, Hamas, Hezbollah, the Palestinian leadership, Ahamedenijad, and so on.

Alice in Wonderland, stumbling onto strange characters?  Or perhaps, a Manchurian Candidate who has fully taken the advice of one of his earlier mentors, Saul Alinsky, a communist agitator who hated American democracy and freedoms, and wrote a 1971 book entitled "Rules for Radicals".  In this book, Alinsky advised his radical students to cut their hair, dress up in suits and ties, get educations suitable for political power acquisition, and move into the various social institutions of democracy, to usurp them bit by bit towards communist agendas.  Alinsky's words are a primer in Mass Psychology, towards a Hard Left takeover of society. His words on creating an illusion of "change" and "hope" sound eerily like the message of the Obama campaign.  ACORN is a very big part of this "change" scheming, but is surely not the only such community organization.  Which theory is correct?  Alice in Wonderland?  Or Obama in Alinsky's Manchuria?

The real Barack Hussein Obama -- who did pray at Mosques as a young man and was registered as a Muslim in his Indonesian school records, and who still today can professionally recite the Muslim call to prayer with exacting Arabic inflection (calling it "one of the prettiest sounds on Earth" in an interview with New York Times reporter Nicholas Kristof, during a rare moment of truth) the denials notwithstanding -- whomever he is, the New and Real Obama slowly emerges from the shadows, and it is not very pretty. It is not what we've been presented with in the Showroom, all spit-and-polished up, shiny under the lights, dressed handsomely for his role in the Grand Political Theatre.  His life path is marked by a stunning list of deformed and twisted characters, money criminals, racist-haters, America-haters, social arsonists, democracy-back-stabbers, freedom-destroyers, bomb-throwers and even a mass-murderer.  But we aren't supposed to mention any of this.  We should keep our mouths shut, because Obama is "The Chosen One" -- he even says it himself, in his own arrogant speeches and commercials, as if some communist apparatchik  had studied Mass Psychology, and put it into practice with their top student  -- "We Are the Ones We have been Waiting For!"  And the crowd swoons.

Taken together, the facts given above suggest the cartoon cover of a recent New Yorker magazine was factually correct, even if it was presented as a means to ridicule the conservatives who dared to raise such questions.  It was a very smart disinformation tactic.  Hoist up the dirty truth about some questionable character you want to promote, exaggerate it a little bit, then poke fun of that truth as if it were the lies and fantasy of the critics, rendering their criticisms impotent and subject to ridicule. So nearly none of what I mention here, which is well documented in the weblinks referenced in this article (which are only a small representative sample), gets examination or reportage except on a few isolated or conservative news sources.  The liberal and left MSM continues to have only horse-laughs about it, or they throw vicious hatred at anyone who challenges Mr. Obama, as if one had challenged a central point of their religious faith. Again, I see the outlines of a very great deception at work, including methods used by the hard-left disinformation agents over decades.  This is Big Alice with brass knuckles.

Obama now is posed to have collected more political donation money than any other politician in the History of the World.  So much money, over $600 million, that he has outspent McCain-Palin by many times over, even recently purchasing his own TV cable channel, which like the old Soviet channels, will play his propaganda speeches over and over.  Much of this money, as much as $63 million, comes from unknown and unnamed foreign donors, in full violation of US election laws.  Credit card fraud also afflicts his donor-collection system, which is flooded with undeclared donors the likes of which no American candidate for high office has ever so completely evaded public scrutiny about.  But by the time it is all investigated, the elections will be over, and the Obama-compliant news media isn't going to pay attention to it then.  Incidentally, the Democratic Party is today the biggest recipient of funds from well-heeled "corporate fat-cats", even while they hurl accusations against the Republicans on this same issue.  Some liberals have made note of this, being perplexed about it as it did not validate their expectations.

To close, a recent "buzz" on the internet is, that Republicans are in a "Right-Wing Rage" against Obama, with dangerous violence being exhibited.  The evidence on this is some angry statements made by audience members during McCain or Palin speeches, coupled with the willingness of conservatives to address the issues given above.  It is true that many conservatives are angry against the Obama candidacy and the MSM cover-up, for these very same reasons. It is an honest and legitimate anger, in my opinion.  But that hardly matches the Liberal Rage out there.  Michelle Malkin has summarized some of this "Liberal Rage", and it is worth a look, as once again the MSM isn't mentioning much or any of it.

In these last days of the elections, there are so many new findings on dirty-tricks and outright criminal activity on the part of the Obama forces, that it is impossible to keep up with them.  None of it appears in the MSM, or if so, the reporters who dare to expose such information are hotly attacked from all sides.  But the above should give pause to any rational-thinking person.  I've seen efforts by some Obama supporters to make comparable lists of the "crimes" or "malfeasance" of the McCain-Palin ticket, but they are nearly entirely fabrications without substance, or kernels of truth around which larger lies have been layered.  I do not wish to say here that McCain-Palin are without problems.   As I said in the start, I have my own critical issues with them.  But I do think they are basically honest and decent people, as was Hillary Clinton, not crooks concealing dangerous hidden agendas.  I only wish Obama was the same.  He's not.

Monckton's Letter to McCain on Global Warming

The letter is valid as a criticism against Obama's viewpoint as well, but it appears to have been written to McCain for the reason that he might actually be persuaded by evidence.  All the points below are factual, but in these days of bald-faced political and media lying and censoring, it doesn't seem to matter very much anymore.

Expert Claims McCain Is Wrong on Global Warming
A British editor and politician prominent in the discussion of climate change has written an open letter to John McCain criticizing statements the Republican candidate has made about global warming.
The Viscount Monckton of Brenchley, who was an adviser to British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, sought to keep Al Gore's global warming documentary "An Inconvenient Truth" out of public schools in Britain, and in March 2007 challenged Gore to a debate on climate change.
Now in his letter to McCain, published on the Web site American Thinker, Monckton calls manmade global warming fears "scientifically discredited" and advises, "Not for a single moment longer must you allow yourself to be distracted by the murderous foolishness of the climate alarmists."
Monckton quotes a McCain statement that "we need to deal with the central facts of rising temperatures."
Monckton, saying he bases his assertions on "peer-reviewed scientific literature," counters, "For most of the past 600 million years, the temperature that most often prevailed globally is thought to have been 12.5 degrees higher than today's temperature . . .
"From 1700 to 1998, temperature rose at a near-uniform rate of about 1 degree per century. In 1998, 'global warming' stopped, and it has not resumed since. Indeed, in the past seven years, temperature has been falling at a rate equivalent to as much as 0.7 degrees per decade."
Responding to McCain's statement that greenhouse gases, chiefly carbon dioxide, "are heavily implicated as a cause of climate change," Monckton writes, "Two-thirds of the carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is naturally present, and carbon dioxide occupies just one ten-thousandth more of the atmosphere today than it did 250 years ago."
Monckton, who was an editor and writer with Britain's Evening Standard newspaper, quotes McCain, "We need to deal with the central facts of . . . rising waters."
He counters, "Sea level has been rising since the end of the last ice age 10,000 years ago . . . The rate of increase has averaged four feet per century. Yet in the 20th century, when we are told that 'global warming' began to have a major impact on global temperature and hence on sea level, sea level rose by just eight inches."
Then in a swipe at Al Gore, whom he does not mention by name, Monckton observes, "There is not and has never been any scientific basis for the exaggerated projections by a certain politician that sea level might imminently rise by as much as 20 feet.
"That politician, in the year in which he circulated a movie containing that projection, bought a $4 million condominium just feet from the ocean at Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco."
Monckton also seeks to refute statements McCain has made on receding glaciers, melting polar ice sheets, extreme weather events, threats to polar bears, and more.
And in reference to the candidate's stated support for efforts to control climate change by reducing the emission of greenhouse gases, Monckton tells McCain: "With every respect, there is no rational basis for your declared intention that your great nation should inflict upon her own working people and upon the starving masses of the Third World the extravagantly pointless, climatically irrelevant, strategically fatal economic wounds that the arrogant advocates of atmospheric alarmism admit they aim to achieve."

Hitler and Islam - Clear Connections & Alliances

In the past, I have posted materials to OBRL-News on historical aspects of the Third Reich and WW-II, related to the subsequent formation of Israel and Lebanon, as carved out as free self-governing enclaves for Jewish and Christian peoples respectively, from the old Ottoman Empire.  This allowed, for the first time in hundreds of years since the origin of the Ottoman Caliphate, for those peoples to emerge out from the shadow of dhimmitude slavery.  But it is something which outraged Muslim dictators universally, as to them, no such territory or slaves should have been freed.  Their Koranic philosophy did not allow such "freedom" to exist on any patch of ground they had previously controlled.  And so, those events continue to create tensions and wars, and otherwise reverberate into modern times, but also with much falsification of history by those with a shared totalitarian agenda -- as is true today with the hard-left, neo-Nazis and Islamic dictators.  As I have argued repeatedly, there are deep and substantial connections between Hitlerism and Islamic fanaticism, that Hitler was greatly admired across the Islamic world during and after WW-II, even into today where "Mein Kampf" continues to be a best-selling book for Muslims, with the Sieg Heil salute being used widely.  Islam also penetrated its influences into the Third Reich, possibly influencing Hitler's decision-making as regarding the status and treatment of Jews and other minorities.  Hitler often remarked how the world did nothing after the Turks exterminated several million Armenian Christians at the close of WW-I, at a time when Germany was also allied with Ottoman Muslims, and the old Mufti of Jerusalem may have planted the seeds of the idea of the Holocaust into Hitler's thinking, by telling him to "just kill them", rather than worry about where the Jews could be deported.  Many, if not most, of the "Hitler laws" have precedents within the Islamic legal structures of dhimmitude-slavery, under which Jews and other non-believers were governed during the Ottomans and elsewhere.  And today, we see similar trends of political alliances between the Blacks, Reds and Greens with the Islamic causes, to help spread Islam and giant mosques across Europe, without concern about what that exactly means for women, for freedom of speech, and so forth.  This all speaks to an outwards spreading and solid connection of attitudes and social institutions once found predominantly only within Saharasia, directly into the German-speaking world under the agency firstly of the old Kaiser Wilhelm "Second Reich" Empire, and later of the Nazis and their Third Reich.  I'll flesh out these facts later on, in forthcoming works, but below is a very interesting new article on the subject, indicating there is a lot more to be learned if only the right questions are formulated, and researched.  It also becomes yet another warning to the West about allowing an unfettered and unreformed Islam into its midst, for reasons quite obvious if one reads it.  Islam is not a "religion" in the Western sense, but a political-totalitarian ideology with long tentacles reaching into the homes and businesses of all "believers" who participate in the system of mullah-dominated mosques.  It is better compared to the totalitarian Communist Party or Nazi Party structures, and will have a similar influence upon any society that permits such a thing to grow unchecked.  J.D.


Hitler and Jihad
By Andrew G. Bostom | Friday, October 24, 2008

A recent report (summarized in translation
here) by the Hamburg intelligence service -the Office for the Protection of the Constitution [Verfassungsschutz]- stressed the hostility of the neo-Nazi North German Action Office toward "Anti-Islamification" efforts in Cologne. At the North German Action Office's [Aktionsbüro Norddeutschland], "campaigns" page website, links are featured with titles such as "National Socialists in Lower Saxony," "Free! Social! National!," and "May 1 - Day of struggle for national Socialism." The Hamburg domestic intelligence report noted the neo-Nazi group's repeated allusions-commonplace in Nazi "analyses"-to the American "east coast," which are meant to characterize "Jewish" domination of America and, by extension, the world. And in a statement published on its website (German link) September 25, 2008, five days after an "Anti-Islamification Congress" was banned by Cologne municipal authorities, the North German Action Office elucidated its solidarity with the global jihad:

Inasmuch as it is a determined opponent of the western-plutocratic one-world policy, we regard Islam, globally considered, as an ally against the mammonistic dominance of the American east coast. The freedom of nations is not threatened by Islam, but rather by the imperialism of the USA and its vassals from Jerusalem to Berlin.

Such concordance between Nazism and jihadism reflects an historical continuum evident since the advent of the Nazi movement. This nexus was already apparent in Hitler's own observations from 1926, elaborated upon over the following decades by both the Nazi leader, and other key Nazi officials, and ideologues. Not surprisingly, there are two predominant, recurring themes in this discourse: jihad as total war, and the annihilationist jihad against the Jews.

Perhaps the earliest recorded evidence of Hitler's serious interest in the jihad was provided by Muhammad 'Inayat Allah Khan [who adopted the pen name "al-Mashriqi"-"the Orientalist" or "the Sage of the East"]. Born in the Punjab in 1888, al-Mashriqi was a Muslim polymath who attended Cambridge on a government scholarship, and excelled in the study of oriental languages, mathematics, engineering, and the sciences.

Not only did Mashriqi translate the standard abridged version of Mein Kampf (then commonly available) from English into Urdu, during one of his sojourns in Europe, which included time spent in Berlin, he met Hitler in the early years of the Fuehrer's leadership of the National Socialist [Nazi] Party. Their meeting took place in 1926 at the National Library. Here is the gist of Mashriqi's report on his interaction with Hitler as described in a letter to the renowned scholar of Indian Islam,
J.M.S. Baljon:
I was astounded when he [Hitler] told me that he knew about my Tazkirah. The news flabbergasted me. . . I found him very congenial and piercing. He discussed Islamic Jihad with me in details. In 1930 I sent him my Isharat concerning the Khaksar movement with a picture of a spade-bearer Khaksar at the end of that book. In 1933 he started his Spade Movement.

Mashriqi also wrote this independent summary of his 1926 encounter with Hitler on May 31, 1935:

If I had known that this was the very man who was to become Germany's savior I would have fallen around Hitler's neck, but on the occasion I was engaged in small talk and tried to find out what he understood about Germany's weakness at the time. Professor [Weil, the host] said, introducing Hitler to me: "This is also a very important man, an activist from the Worker's Party." We shook hands and Hitler said, pointing to a book that was lying on the table: "I had a chance to read your al-Tazkirah." Little did I understand at that time, what should have been clear to me when he said these words!
The astonishing similarities-or shall we say the unintentional similarity between two great minds-between Hitler's great book and the teachings of my Tazkirah and Isharat embolden me, because the fifteen years of "struggle" of the author {Hitler] of "My Struggle" [Mein Kampf] have now actually led his nation back to success. But only after leading his nation to the intended goal, has he disclosed his movement's rules and obligations to the world; only after fifteen years has he made the means of success widely known. It is possible that he has arrived at those means and doctrines by trial and error, but it should be absolutely clear that Mashriqi [referring to himself in the third person] has identified those means and doctrines in al-Tazkirah a full nine years and in the Isharat a full three years before the success of the Nazi movement, simply by following the shining guidance of the Holy Koran.


Do yourself a favor, and read the full article, especially if you are one of those who sees "no problem" with the increasing Islamization of Europe and the Americas.

Islamic Sexual Twists

The left-wing writer Naomi Wolf wrote that there was a"thriving sexuality" in the Islamic world, hidden behind all those veils, and in spite of female genital mutilations, forced arranged rape-marriages, child-betrothal, murder of women who dared to really try and live their own sexual life, or to even show a bit of arm or ankle, and other paradisical considerations (which she never mentioned, of course).  Yes, and the same "thriving sexuality" also exists within prisons, and I suppose one could put a smiley-face on that as well.  Repression breeds exaggerated pathos, but pathologically-inclined people cannot recognize it as such. 

Below are two items which speak to this issue, about sexual extremism in the Islamic world not usually exposed in the MSM.  The first item goes way beyond anything permissible in any nation where loving mothers have a say about it, but truth be told is more common in the Islamic world than what political correctness allows to be stated publicly.  We do know from his own writings, the Ayatollah Khomeini gave instructions on how men should have sexual relations with children and to even sexually assault infants, along with how the meat of sheep and camels could or could not be distributed after men abused themselves with those animals.  See here, and here.

The second example about enticing the 12th Imam to re-appear by spreading sexual chaos is just, well...., wackey.  It may superficially remind us of some Christian cults where screwing around is considered "innoecent frolycking of the Lambes of God" -- though no Christian claimed this would bring Jesus down from heaven, wielding a sword to smite the unbelievers.   Maybe these Shiite practices are the reason why the Sunnis view them as heretics?  Or maybe it is just jealousy?   In any case, it is not all fun and games. The top thug-in-chief of Iran, Ahamedenijad, also is a believer in the 12th Imam, and also wants to see the "return of the Mahdi" down from Heaven (or is it, up from Hell).  But he thinks it will happen only by dropping atom-bombs on Israel or the USA.  His first speech to the UN a few months ago -- all misty-eyed and appearing stoned out of his mind (yes, hashish is widely used in Islamic nations) -- explicitly stated this, though in slightly coded words so only those knowing who the Mahdi was would understand.  Pity all those UN diplomats who sat and listened intently, applauding afterwards, but who did not know, that Ahamedenijad had just threatened to murder them all!   Yes indeed, a religious fanatic, stoned on hashish, full of hate, and with several a-bombs in his pocket.  One wishes he would join this other sexual Mahdi cult, and leave the world alone.  J.D.

Link between child porn and Muslim terrorists discovered in police raids
Paedophile websites are being used to pass information between terrorists
Richard Kerbaj and Dominic Kennedy

A link between terrorism plots and hardcore child pornography is becoming clear after a string of police raids in Britain and across the Continent, an investigation by The Times has discovered. Images of child abuse have been found during Scotland Yard antiterrorism swoops and in big inquiries in Italy and Spain.
Secret coded messages are being embedded into child pornographic images, and paedophile websites are being exploited as a secure way of passing information between terrorists.
British security services are also aware of the trend and believe that it requires further investigation to improve understanding of terrorists' methods and mindsets. Concerns within the Metropolitan Police led to a plan to run a pilot research project exploring the nature of the link. One source familiar with the proposal said that this could eventually lead to the training of child welfare experts to identify signs of terrorist involvement as they monitor pornographic sites.
Concerns have already been expressed at Cabinet minister level about the risk of vulnerable Muslim youths being exploited by older men.
Officers have noted that child sex abuse images have been found during investigations into some of the most advanced suspected plots. However, it is understood that the proposed research project was never implemented because the AntiTerrorism Branch was overwhelmed by the sheer number of cases it was having to deal with.
It is not clear whether the terrorists were more interested in the material for personal gratification or were drawn to child porn networks as a secure means of sending messages. In one case fewer than a dozen images were found; in another, 40,000.



Shiite cults seek to wreak havoc in Iraq
A few fringe groups seek to sow chaos, convinced it will hasten the arrival of the Mahdi, the Shiites' 12th imam who they believe will bring peace.
By Usama Redha, Los Angeles Times Staff Writer
October 15, 2008
BAGHDAD -- Falling into a depression after her husband was killed last year, Iman immersed herself in religious studies and became fixated on a Shiite Muslim saint.

Soon, a secretive group of worshipers tried to recruit the young widow, telling her that she could help bring the holy figureback to Earth. All she had to do was sleep with the group's male followers.

Horrified, Iman, now 20, refused.

Her experience shines a light on the rise in Iraq of fanatical cults devoted to Imam Mahdi, the Shiites' 12th imam. A descendant of the prophet Muhammad, he disappeared more than 1,000 years ago.

The Shiite faithful believe that in the world's darkest hour, Imam Mahdi will return and bring justice and calm. But where mainstream Shiite believers wait patiently for that day, groups such as the one that tried to enlist Iman are convinced that they can hasten his reappearance by spreading chaos.

"Muslim Day" Dominance Parade, Times Square, NYC, 10-12-08

"Muslim Day" Dominance Parade in Times Square, NYC 10-12-08

"Takbir!" "Allahu Akbar!"  Get out of the way, you Dhimmis, Here come the Angry Muslims!  An incredible scene you must view, to see the dark future for every part of the USA or Europe that allows Nazified Islam into its presence.  Verbally and almost physically assaulting women on the periphery who aren't wearing veils, or for holding up signs saying "We Will Not Submit" or "No Sharia Law", Etc.  Screaming at them "Whores!"  "We will rape you 50 times!"  If the cops weren't there, blood would have run in the streets.

Angry furious bearded men, filled with hatred for women, attitudes straight out of the dead deserts of Saharasia, in vainglory and rage, screaming their dominance.  Don't you dare resist!   Out of the way!  Today they are a minority.  What happens when they are not, and when they are fully represented in the police forces?  You know the answer.  In the Islamic world, there is no opposition at all, and such "protestors" don't exist, or simply vanish into a prison cell, or without a trace, police or no.  That is what Islam will mean for the West as well.  Remember, this "Muslim Day Parade" is the "moderates".  This is what every woman in the USA will be forced to deal with -- Without the police -- when/if such fanatics take over.

View this quick, before the dhimmis at YouTube take it down, because "hate speech" is increasingly defined as merely SHOWING the hatred of the Muslims by quoting them, or posting videos of their vile words and deeds.


Here's an article on the event, from Phyllis Chessler:
An Ill Wind: Manhattan's Muslim Day Parade Plus Much More
On my way to Penn Station on Friday afternoon, (on West 29th St. to be precise), there seemed to be some kind of demonstration going on. When we got closer we saw that it was a large Islamic prayer service which had spilled out onto the sidewalk and into the gutter. It was mainly a mass of prostrated men but women in hijab walked nearby. The driver, a silver-haired man of Greek and Bulgarian background, launched into a non-stop monologue.
"I wouldn't mind it if they came here to become Americans like I did. But no, they hate America. They want to stay the way they are but they want to take over America. You ought to see it in Astoria, Queens! Far bigger than this. You know why they're on the sidewalk and in the street? Because they are really protesting not having larger and larger mosques."
Well, their prayer service, (and it was that), did somehow seem like a protest. There was an aggressive rather than a humbled feeling in the air, more anger than love, a separatism but one right in-your-face.

Decade has had fewest 90-degree days since 1930 (Chicago)
By Tom Skilling
August 13, 2008
August is the wettest and often the muggiest month of the year. Yet, summer heat continues in short supply, continuing a trend that has dominated much of the 21st Century's opening decade. There have been only 162 days 90 degrees or warmer at Midway Airport over the period from 2000 to 2008. That's by far the fewest 90-degree temperatures in the opening nine years of any decade on record here since 1930.

"Lawful Islamism" and "Legal Jihad" On the Attack

From Dr. Von... thanks much.  More evidence that, while there are peaceful individual Muslims (like the lady who authored the warning letter below), there is no such thing as a "Peaceful Islam".  The OIC mentioned below is the Organization of Islamic Conferences, a group representing all the totalitarian Islamic nations which is functionally identical to the Communist International and Nazi Party all rolled up into one.  Their goal is Global Islamic Domination.  The new "anti-blasphemy laws" gearing up in the UN, and which would be pushed into every nation on the planet much like the Kyoto Treaty, etc., is the tip of the spear-point of the "Legal Jihad" that is going on internationally -- the abuse of Western democratic laws and legal structure, to castrate and suppress Western freedoms.   If it passes, and gets accepted by a compliant USA -- which most certainly will be the case under an Obama Presidency -- then you will find a quick vanishing of all such things as OBRL News.  Some may get a horse laugh out of that, but realize that things can turn.  The same "anti-blasphemy" regulations could be used to banish criticism of Christians, Jewish practices (ie circumcision), and Hindus and Buddhists could command new "respect".  So that new film by Bill Mayer "Religuous" would surely be banished, as "hate speech".  One expects that authentic liberals would oppose such a law, but in fact it has been the liberal political establishment which has pushed for and supported these anti-freedom laws, because they perceive the Muslim causes to be supportive of their liberalism (heaven knows what they are smoking when concluding this), or merely that if conservatives are for something (preservation of American freedoms in this case), then they are reflexively against it.  But mostly it will be violent and muscular Islam that would use such laws to hammer their demands for special treatments and conditions, after which everyone's freedom would suffer.  Read below for details about what's coming. The letter has many imbedded reference links so if they do not reproduced on your email, go to the original item to access them.  Also recommended, the article "Sharia is Hate" by the same author, Supna Zaidi.  You'll never find a critic of Islam who is more fierce and intense than a female Muslim who has managed to escape the Hell Holes of female sexual slavery within Islamic Saharasia.



Lawful Islamism's Greatest Attack Yet
The OIC Resolution Against Defaming Religion

by Supna Zaidi
Muslim World Today
October 10, 2008

Have you seen the little old lady who passes out Jehovah's Witness literature in your neighborhood? Some people stop and show interest. Others roll their eyes, and keep walking. But, would you ever expect anyone to threaten her? Call her a racist, and try to get her arrested?

Islamists would. And that is exactly what happened to two English Christian ministers who had the nerve to proselytize on a street corner in a predominantly Muslim immigrant area in the UK in 2007.

Such freedom of speech violations won't be an anomaly if the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC), which has a permanent delegation to the United Nations, succeeds in passing a UN resolution against "Defamation of Religion" Noboby in a western country will be able to discuss the socio-political consequences of Muslim immigration, for fear of being labeled "Islamophobic" and slapped with a fine, or even jail time.

Islamists are increasingly using lawful Islamism, or non-violent and legal strategies to spread Sharia, (Islamic law) in the West, encroaching on non-Muslim life everyday. Other examples include:

1. Sharia Finance;
2.      Islam in public schools;
3.      Violations of basic hygiene policy by Muslim medical staff;
4.      Workplace violations in the name of religious freedom;
5.      Censorship of literature.

Under the banner of "religious freedom," Islamists attack the very fabric of democracy in favor of Islam in the public sphere. The above examples are not examples of pluralism, but a violation of the separation of church and state doctrine meant to keep people of all faiths, or no faith, equal under the law. Liberals have forgotten that secularism is not a free-for-all, but has boundaries in order to remain meaningful.

Freedom of speech has already been attacked repeatedly. Islamists tried to censor criticism of Islamist terrorism when the Muhammad cartoons were published in Jyllens-Posten in 2005. Strangely enough, the "cartoon intifada" arose 5 months after their original printing, but only weeks before the UNHCR was due to consider the OIC's resolution on "Combating Defamation of Religion."

Such a coincidence caused the National Secular Society to state in its Memorandum (Section E, point 2) to the UK Parliament that,

the Danish cartoon crisis was manufacturedŠ to exploit sensitivities around racial discrimination and to promote (or even exaggerate) the notion of "Islamophobia" in order to restrict possibilities for open discussion or criticism of IslamŠ.measures calling for legislation banning "defamation of religion" - Š. aims to remove religion, especially Islam, from public scrutiny and public debate.

If any religion is to be integrated into the daily social, economic and political life of a nation, it must open the door for evaluation of its goals and application. Otherwise, OIC nations will be able to govern unilaterally without respect to international law. Consider the following precedent.

Saudi Arabia ratified the UN Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) in 2000, with reservations, stating, "In case of contradiction between any term of the Convention and the norms of Islamic law, the Kingdom is not under obligation to observe the contradictory terms of the Convention."

Thus, Saudi Arabia confirms that it will only offer lip service to human rights by signing documents like the CEDAW charter. It will not actually improve the status of women, because it is a theocracy, and every move a woman makes is governed by Islamic law. CEDAW can do nothing for them. Moreover, if the Defamation of Religion resolution is passed, all human rights activists will feel even greater censorship, since protests from abroad will be construed as racism.

Consider the "Qatif girl" case. A Saudi girl was gang-raped in 2005 and blamed for it, since she was in the presence of unrelated men when it happened. Her attorney lost his license for challenging the Saudi courts. Only after generating global media pressure did the situation change in her favor. The king pardoned her and the attorney got his license reinstated. In a post- Defamation of Religion world, the attorney would have been trapped, unable to help the girl and disbarred if he dared to challenge Saudi Islamic law.

Lastly, the OIC resolution must fail because it is patently hypocritical. While professing great sensitivity toward religion, OIC members ironically regularly fail to show any respect for other faiths:

Saudi Arabia continues to use bigoted textbooks, and export them to American Islamic schools despite promises to change.

Iran sponsored a Holocaust cartoon contest in retaliation for the Danish cartoons of Muhammad in 2005. Yet, Jews had nothing to do with the Jyllands-Posten newspaper.

Pakistan's blasphemy laws attack Christians as a pretext for personal disputes.

The Defamation of Religion resolution is a free pass for Islamists to continue denigrating other religions and minorities through lawful Islamism. It ties the hands of any politician that questions the spread of Islamism in the West, and prevents critical evaluation of the treatment of women and minorities in Muslim societies.

Liberal and conservative citizens of the West must work together to prevent this resolution from passing in the UN.
