Global Warming Swindle, Update
"The Great Global Warming Swindle" and other excellent documentary DVDs on the same subject are now available as something aside from pirate editions.
This website not only offers the original DVD which was shown in the UK some months back, but another entitled "Apocalypse No: Why Global Warming is not a global crisis", a lecture-debate at Cambridge University. The website also offers several interesting YouTube clips, such as:
John Stossel's report on Global Warming
Congressman Barton with Al Gore at a Congressional Hearing
Dr. Patrick Michael and Jerry Taylor - Some Inconvenient Facts on Global Warming
EPA Chief Vows to Probe Global Warming Email Threat
All of this material was assembled and published before the dramatic cooling of global temperatures as observed during 2007, so keep that in mind.
I've already posted info about these dramatic global events which are happening as we speak, in stark opposition to all the blather from know-nothings and talking-heads on the TV. Over 2007 and so far in 2008 as well, the world has experienced a dramatic COOLING, the likes of which has not been recorded by meteorologists. One has to go back to reconstructed climate records, as from ice cores and sediments, to find anything similar, and that makes it all the more alarming. It is all well documented and has been fleshed-out in prior OBRL-News reports. Typically, those whose world views are shaped by mainstream-ism and anti-Western self-loathing have sneered about it...
But sneer or not, Mother Nature will tell us which theories are correct, and which not. The cooling is real. News reports today that the Western USA has more snow, with colder temperatures over the last months, than have been seen since around 1945. The global cooling -- which Al Gore has not yet announced to the world, so nobody who matters is going to believe it -- has continued unabated.
THE scariest photo I have seen on the internet is www.spaceweather.com, where you will find a real-time image of the sun from the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory, located in deep space at the equilibrium point between solar and terrestrial gravity.
What is scary about the picture is that there is only one tiny sunspot.
Disconcerting as it may be to true believers in global warming, the average temperature on Earth has remained steady or slowly declined during the past decade, despite the continued increase in the atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide, and now the global temperature is falling precipitously.
All four agencies that track Earth's temperature (the Hadley Climate Research Unit in Britain, the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies in New York, the Christy group at the University of Alabama, and Remote Sensing Systems Inc in California) report that it cooled by about 0.7C in 2007. This is the fastest temperature change in the instrumental record and it puts us back where we were in 1930. If the temperature does not soon recover, we will have to conclude that global warming is over.
There is also plenty of anecdotal evidence that 2007 was exceptionally cold. It snowed in Baghdad for the first time in centuries, the winter in China was simply terrible and the extent of Antarctic sea ice in the austral winter was the greatest on record since James Cook discovered the place in 1770.
It is generally not possible to draw conclusions about climatic trends from events in a single year, so I would normally dismiss this cold snap as transient, pending what happens in the next few years.
This is where SOHO comes in. The sunspot number follows a cycle of somewhat variable length, averaging 11 years. The most recent minimum was in March last year. The new cycle, No.24, was supposed to start soon after that, with a gradual build-up in sunspot numbers.
It didn't happen. The first sunspot appeared in January this year and lasted only two days. A tiny spot appeared last Monday but vanished within 24 hours. Another little spot appeared this Monday. Pray that there will be many more, and soon.
The reason this matters is that there is a close correlation between variations in the sunspot cycle and Earth's climate. The previous time a cycle was delayed like this was in the Dalton Minimum, an especially cold period that lasted several decades from 1790.
Northern winters became ferocious: in particular, the rout of Napoleon's Grand Army during the retreat from Moscow in 1812 was at least partly due to the lack of sunspots.
That the rapid temperature decline in 2007 coincided with the failure of cycle No.24 to begin on schedule is not proof of a causal connection but it is cause for concern.
It is time to put aside the global warming dogma, at least to begin contingency planning about what to do if we are moving into another little ice age, similar to the one that lasted from 1100 to 1850.
There is no doubt that the next little ice age would be much worse than the previous one and much more harmful than anything warming may do. There are many more people now and we have become dependent on a few temperate agricultural areas, especially in the US and Canada. Global warming would increase agricultural output, but global cooling will decrease it.
Millions will starve if we do nothing to prepare for it (such as planning changes in agriculture to compensate), and millions more will die from cold-related diseases.
There is also another possibility, remote but much more serious. The Greenland and Antarctic ice cores and other evidence show that for the past several million years, severe glaciation has almost always afflicted our planet.
The bleak truth is that, under normal conditions, most of North America and Europe are buried under about 1.5km of ice. This bitterly frigid climate is interrupted occasionally by brief warm interglacials, typically lasting less than 10,000 years.
The interglacial we have enjoyed throughout recorded human history, called the Holocene, began 11,000 years ago, so the ice is overdue. We also know that glaciation can occur quickly: the required decline in global temperature is about 12C and it can happen in 20 years.
The next descent into an ice age is inevitable but may not happen for another 1000 years. On the other hand, it must be noted that the cooling in 2007 was even faster than in typical glacial transitions. If it continued for 20 years, the temperature would be 14C cooler in 2027.
By then, most of the advanced nations would have ceased to exist, vanishing under the ice, and the rest of the world would be faced with a catastrophe beyond imagining.
Australia may escape total annihilation but would surely be overrun by millions of refugees. Once the glaciation starts, it will last 1000 centuries, an incomprehensible stretch of time.
If the ice age is coming, there is a small chance that we could prevent or at least delay the transition, if we are prepared to take action soon enough and on a large enough scale.
For example: We could gather all the bulldozers in the world and use them to dirty the snow in Canada and Siberia in the hope of reducing the reflectance so as to absorb more warmth from the sun.
We also may be able to release enormous floods of methane (a potent greenhouse gas) from the hydrates under the Arctic permafrost and on the continental shelves, perhaps using nuclear weapons to destabilise the deposits.
We cannot really know, but my guess is that the odds are at least 50-50 that we will see significant cooling rather than warming in coming decades.
The probability that we are witnessing the onset of a real ice age is much less, perhaps one in 500, but not totally negligible.
All those urging action to curb global warming need to take off the blinkers and give some thought to what we should do if we are facing global cooling instead.
It will be difficult for people to face the truth when their reputations, careers, government grants or hopes for social change depend on global warming, but the fate of civilisation may be at stake.
In the famous words of Oliver Cromwell, "I beseech you, in the bowels of Christ, think it possible you may be mistaken.

More Evidence Against "Truthers"... but who cares!
Seems the al-Qaeda killers want to be recognized, but everyone from the Western "truth" liars to the Iranian killers continues giving credit to those pesky Jews. "What's the world coming to, when mass-murdering terrorist religious fanatic killers of women and children can't be recognized for all their hard work and suffering?!" Obviously, al-Qaeda didn't plan on so many Western self-hating idiots taking their side so swimmingly, and reflexively, that they would be denied their due credit. "Once again, the evil American-Zionist Conspiracy has successfully denied Muslims of their rightful place in modern history."
Seriously, one would have thought the final video last year of Muhammed Atta sitting in a tent with Osama Bin Ladin, laughingly stroking an AK-47 and having his pre-suicide-homicide murder party, would have been sufficient for the "Truth Movement" to fold up its tent and just Go Home.
Freedom of Speech is Dying, Now in France, except for raging mullahs
And not just in France are critics of Islamic fanaticism being silenced by the anti-freedom "progressives". If anyone dared to suggest a mullah screeching "Kill the Jews" should be brought to court for hate-speech, even if members of his mosque had been caught killing Jews, the liberal-left would be hot to defend them, jumping up and down screaming "Fascism! Fascism!" But an old woman, who expresses her opinion even in private letters, is fair game for the New Inquistion and liberal thought-police, and they will all line up to "stand in solidarity with our Muslim brothers", even as those "brothers" plot the demise of their liberal supporters.
Amazing, yet another outspoken woman is being crushed under the left-wing jack-boot in the West, for daring to speak the awful truth about Islam. J.D.

In the 1960s, Brigitte Bardot was France's national icon, a pouty-lipped poster girl for the glories of her home country. So it is a sign of how radically times have changed that yesterday's silver-screen darling is today's enemy of the people.
Bardot's "crimes," such as they are, are straightforward: She has committed the sin of speaking frankly and unapologetically about her country's hostile Muslim immigrant population and - what is evidently worse - questioning the compatibility of some Muslim religious practices with Western society. Common sense, one might think, or least subjects fit for fruitful debate.
Not in modern France. Last week, the erstwhile cinema siren went on trial on the charge of inciting "racial hatred against Muslims." If convicted, she could face a two-month suspended prison sentence and nearly $24,000 in fines ...
Europe's Future: Islamization? Civil War? Assimilation and Integration?
An excellent analysis by Daniel Pipes. I would say, it is a toss-up between the first two unsettling choices, as the evidence for the third choice simply does not exist. A good example is given in the second item below. In either case, the USA will become involved, much as happened in the 20th Century. The article covers territory which nearly nobody is discussing, given the taboo nature of the whole subject. J.D.
The future of Europe is in play. Will it turn into "Eurabia," a part of the Muslim world? Will it remain the distinct cultural unit it has been over the last millennium? Or might there be some creative synthesis of the two civilizations?
The answer has vast importance. Europe may constitute a mere 7 percent of the world's landmass but for five hundred years, 1450-1950, for good and ill, it was the global engine of change. How it develops in the future will affect all humanity, and especially daughter countries such as Australia which still retain close and important ties to the old continent.
I foresee potentially one of three paths for Europe: Muslims dominating, Muslims rejected, or harmonious integration.
Read the whole thing.
Now, below is an example, one of many, which shapes my view that Europe will face one of the first two options given above, but not the third. The only Muslims who appear genuinely interested in "assimilation and integration" are quitting Islam wholesale, after which they become apostates and must go into hiding or flee to the USA. Not even Canada is safe, given the increasingly pro-Muslim laws, which today try to silence or imprison writers who are critical of Islamic hate-speech.
Thanks to Acharya S. for this second item, who correctly noted "... when Geert Wilders objects to this HATE SPEECH, calls come out for HIS arrest."
Of course, there is the implied threat of Islamic violence against the infidel in all of this, and the violence is carried out periodically. J.D.
Netherlands: Radical imam teaches to hate infidels
Islam teacher Suhayb Salam from Tilburg, taught his students to hate infidels, according ot journalist Patrick Pouw in his book "Salaam! Een jaar onder orthodoxe moslims" (Salam! A year among orthodox Muslims). Suhayb is the son of Tilburg imam Ahmed Salam, who had in the past refused to shake minister Verdonk's hand.
For a year Pouw learned by the ultra-orthodox Salafist Salam, manager of the Islamic Institute for Upbringing and Education. In this institute youth are taught to be preachers of the "only true faith, Islam".
Salam hammed in ever lesson on the duty to hate unbelievers. Pouw writes in his book: "We learned that all infidels were enemies of Allah, that everybody who didn't follow Islam is an enemy of Allah. We heard that sincere love for Allah means that we must hate his enemies, and must see them as our enemies. That was nothing less than an obligation."
Salam told his students that Muslims may not report each other to the police. "Since that would mean that a non-Muslim, an infidel, would judge a Muslim."
He also advised a student who had a bible in his house to burn it.
On TV program Netwerk, Pouw tells that the students had to speak to people on the street and admonish them, for example if a girl didn't wear a headscarf or wore a short skirt.
Salam, who knew Pouw was a journalist, did not want to comment on Netwerk, but said that "all claims about inciting hate are nonsense." According to Pouw, Salam did not call for committing violence in a more direct manner.
Here's a letter recently sent to a scientific group critical of mainstream physics theories (Big-Bang creationism and Einsteinian relativity, primarily) at the Natural Philosophy Alliance - http://www.worldnpa.org/ It should be self-explanatory, and also of possible wider interest for those considering Reich's theory of Cosmic Superimposition, and orgone energy in space.
Thanks for the links and discussion on the ether. I've been tracking the Miller-type of ether-drift experiments, which not only got a positive result, but was confirmed (without published acknowledgement) in the Michelson-Pease-Pearson experiment atop Mt. Wilson, and that of Kennedy-Thorndike as well. More recently, Hector Munera, Yuri Galaev, Reg Cahill and others have made similar experimental detections, from what I can tell all in good general agreement with the Miller ether-velocity and drift-direction parameters. Also deWitte's work is in agreement. (And this does not even begin to address the Sagnac/Michelson-Gale experiments.) But I also note the difficulty of getting this information on-line, even though the copyrights are expired on the older historical papers. So I put together a special webpage which covers this material and offers PDF downloads of the critical items.
Please feel free to share this material around as you wish.
This listing is not finished, and is restricted to experimental papers following the Miller or Sagnac approach, or which make open discussions of them without the usual anti-scientific denigrating dismissals. If anyone has PDFs for any of the remaining papers for which no PDF is currently offered, or has a suggestion for other citations to add to this list, I'm open to hearing about it.
I've not been able to participate in the discussions, or this year's conference, but the ether question interests me greatly, as per my papers here:
Educate Yourself about fact-based Islamo-Realism versus the phoney "Islamo-Phobia" which factually does not exist as a prejudice, anymore than "Nazi-phobia" or "Communist-phobia". Not every member of the Nazi Party, nor of the Communist Party, was active in their "jihads" which killed millions. But the vast majority were silent in the face of it, just as the vast majority of "ordinary Muslims" and "moderate Muslims" are silent (in silent agreement?) in the fact of the international terrorism committed "in the name of Islam".
Here's an excellent 5-minute review of Geert Wilder's film "Fitna" by the indefatigable Robert Spencer, who asks "What are those who are denouncing the film doing to limit the activities of the Jihadists which the film portrays? The world is waiting for an answer."
Also related, the following lecture videos, from a Conference on Freedom of Speech in the Age of Jihad (10 April 2008, NYC) addressing the use of "human rights" commissions, legal assaults and "hate-speech" laws by Islamic groups, to suppress and block, on an international level, open scholarly and public debate and discussion about violent trends and the facilitation of terrorism within and by mainstream "ordinary" Islam.
I'm always asked about the Kate Bush "Cloudbusting" song and video. It is fascinating and well done, featuring Kate Bush playing the young Peter Reich, and Donald Sutherland playing Wilhelm Reich. Too short for much education or documentary -- it's a music video lasting a bit over 5 minutes and no more -- but the apparatus always attracts attention. It certainly is a more fantastic looking device than anything I or anyone I know who actually does effective CORE work in the real world has ever constructed, or needed to construct, and seems pretty clear to have been made specifically for this music video to add to the fantasy element. Likewise, the scenes of clouds responding to the Kate Bush fantasy cloudbuster are time-lapsed. Sometimes one does see quite remarkable changes in cloud patterns -- I've documented those systematically via photographical analysis years back, at the University of Kansas -- but not so fast-moving as in this video.
Anyhow, if you haven't seen the video, you can view it on YouTube, here:
Nope. It will be totally forbidden, by the moralists of the both Islamic and Stalinist varieties, destined to cause conniption-fits among all the Sunday-Schoolers and Politically-Correct, so enjoy it while you can... (not every posting has to be totally serious!).
Patriotic students at more than 100 campuses will host Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week II this week, April 7-11, to educate the public about the threat of radical Islam.
Around the country, nationally known speakers will address college students on the topic of political Islam. These include author and lifelong civil rights activist David Horowitz, scholar of Islam Robert Spencer, Middle East expert Daniel Pipes, former Muslim Nonie Darwish, and Congresswoman Sue Myrick.
The centerpiece of this year's campaign is the Declaration Against Genocide. The Declaration calls on "student governments and Muslim groups" to condemn Hezbollah and Hamas, and repudiate the saying of the prophet Mohammed that redemption will only come when Muslims fight Jews and kill them, when the rocks and trees cry out Oh Muslim there is a Jew hiding behind me, come and kill him. The charter also affirms such radical notions as:
*The right of all people to live in freedom and dignity
*The freedom of the individual conscience: to change religions or have no religion at all
*The equal dignity of women and men
*The right of all people to live free from violence, intimidation, and coercion
Students around the country will try to spread the call for this generation to respect the innate dignity of every human being. (You can read and sign the Declaration here.)
One hundred Muslim Student Associations were asked a month ago to sign the Declaration. None of them have. That is because the Muslim Student Associations are not religious or ethnic or cultural groups. They are political arms of the Muslim Brotherhood, the parent organization of al-Qaeda and Hamas. As documented in a series of Frontpage articles and in the pamphlet The Muslim Student Association and the Jihad Network, the campus MSAs are part of the "soft jihad," the movement which provides moral and economic support to the terrorists and seeks to undermine the foundations of western civilization.
Young people will also view such relevant films as:
*The uncut version of the ABC miniseries The Path to 9/11. As powerful as the broadcast version was, few remember that ABC censored and suppressed part of the original film in order to placate the Clintons.
*Suicide Killers, in which French-Algerian filmmaker Pierre Rehov allowed Muslims engaging in terrorist attacks against Israel to describe their motives in their own words.
*Obsession: Radical Islam's War on the West, which includes the powerful testimony of former Muslims Walid Shoebat and Nonie Darwish but includes footage of hatred broadcast throughout the Muslim world.
*Islam: What the West Needs to Know, a documentary recounting al-Qaeda's expansive agenda and the theology shared by radical jihadists worldwide.
Seems Mother Nature did not yet join the Green Party.... Until recently, the BBC and other left news sources (which is, most of them) have systematically censored out scientific critics and evidence against the greenhouse theory. But even while Al Gore condemns the critics as "flat-earthers", it has become increasingly difficult to deny the dramatic global cooling of the several years, especially after the incredible snowfalls, the massive chilling which nearly everyone has experienced. Scholarly meetings on the greenhouse theory were typically held indoors with anomalous snow falling outside the lecture halls. The fact that the BBCCCP now will report on the cooling is telling.
Several articles below. Go to the originals for some dramatic video clips.
La Nina caused some of the coldest temperatures in memory in China
Global temperatures will drop slightly this year as a result of the cooling effect of the La Nina current in the Pacific, UN meteorologists have said.
The World Meteorological Organization's secretary-general, Michel Jarraud, told the BBC it was likely that La Nina would continue into the summer.
This would mean global temperatures have not risen since 1998, prompting some to question climate change theory.
But experts say we are still clearly in a long-term warming trend - and they forecast a new record high temperature within five years.
The WMO points out that the decade from 1998 to 2007 was the warmest on record. Since the beginning of the 20th Century, the global average surface temperature has risen by 0.74C.
While Nasa, the US space agency, cites 2005 as the warmest year, the UK's Hadley Centre lists it as second to 1998.
Researchers say the uncertainty in the observed value for any particular year is larger than these small temperature differences. What matters, they say, is the long-term upward trend.
LA NINA KEY FACT
La Nina translates from the Spanish as "The Child Girl"
Refers to the extensive cooling of the central and eastern Pacific
Increased sea temperatures on the western side of the Pacific mean the atmosphere has more energy and frequency of heavy rain and thunderstorms is increased
Typically lasts for up to 12 months and generally less damaging event than the stronger El Nino
La Nina and El Nino are two great natural Pacific currents whose effects are so huge they resonate round the world.
El Nino warms the planet when it happens; La Nina cools it. This year, the Pacific is in the grip of a powerful La Nina.
It has contributed to torrential rains in Australia and to some of the coldest temperatures in memory in snow-bound parts of China.
Mr Jarraud told the BBC that the effect was likely to continue into the summer, depressing temperatures globally by a fraction of a degree.
This would mean that temperatures have not risen globally since 1998 when El Nino warmed the world.
A minority of scientists question whether this means global warming has peaked and argue the Earth has proved more resilient to greenhouse gases than predicted.
Animation of El Nino and La Nina effects
But Mr Jarraud insisted this was not the case and noted that 2008 temperatures would still be well above average for the century.
"When you look at climate change you should not look at any particular year," he said. "You should look at trends over a pretty long period and the trend of temperature globally is still very much indicative of warming.
"La Nina is part of what we call 'variability'. There has always been and there will always be cooler and warmer years, but what is important for climate change is that the trend is up; the climate on average is warming even if there is a temporary cooling because of La Nina."
China suffered from heavy snow in January
Adam Scaife, lead scientist for Modelling Climate Variability at the Hadley Centre in Exeter, UK, said their best estimate for 2008 was about 0.4C above the 1961-1990 average, and higher than this if you compared it with further back in the 20th Century.
Mr Scaife told the BBC: "What's happened now is that La Nina has come along and depressed temperatures slightly but these changes are very small compared to the long-term climate change signal, and in a few years time we are confident that the current record temperature of 1998 will be beaten when the La Nina has ended."
'There will be significant cooling very soon,' asserts solar scientist
Posted: April 03, 2008
You could have heard a pin drop at the Hong Kong conference designed to persuade the airline industry to cut back on its production of so-called greenhouse gases to fight "global warming."
The "Greener Skies 2008" conference had just heard from David Archibald, a solar scientist asserting that climate change is mostly dictated by solar cycles, not carbon dioxide levels, as conventional wisdom suggests.
Archibald didn't just tell the group not to worry about carbon dioxide emissions. He told those gathered they should figure out ways of increasing CO2 output.
"In a few short years, we will have a reversal of the warming of the 20th century," Archibald warned, according to CargoNews Asia. "There will be significant cooling very soon. Our generation has known a warm, giving sun, but the new generation will suffer a sun that is less giving, and the earth will be less fruitful. Carbon dioxide is not even a little bit bad - it's wholly beneficial."
One observer at the February conference said there would have been fewer jaws dropping had Archibald stripped off his clothes before the assembled.
"Plant growth responds to atmospheric carbon dioxide enrichment," he continued. "In a world of higher atmospheric carbon dioxide, crops will use less water per unit of carbon dioxide uptake. Thus the productivity of semi-arid lands will increase the most."
But the real shocker was not just his unorthodox view of carbon dioxide. Unlike most of those in the conference, Archibald doesn't see a future threat of global warming, but an imminent and dire future of global cooling.
"We will need this increase in agricultural productivity to offset the colder weather coming," he said. "It also follows that if the developed countries of the world want to be caring and sharing to the countries of the Third World, the best thing that could be done for them is to increase atmospheric carbon dioxide levels. It is the equivalent of giving them free phosphate fertilizer. Who would want to deny the Third World such a wonderful benefit?''
After Archibald's speech, Martin Craigs, president of Aerospace Forum Asia, went to the microphone and asked: "Don't you have Al Gore's e-mail address?" "How can you be right and 2,000 scientists wrong?"
Archibald replied: "I am happy to share the science. It's all reputable."
A few persons have complained their 56k modems aren't up to stuff for downloading movies, but whether you have a fast or slow internet connection, there's a great review of Fitna, with details and photos, at the Truth be Known website.
The long awaited movie from Dutch politician Geert Wilders, "Fitna," opens with a quote from the Quran/Koran, surah 8:60, in English with the Arabic on the right side. In fact, pretty much the entire movie is composed of either quotes from the Koran or from other Muslim authorities, as well as images of the murder and mayhem-- the terrorism - committed all over the place by Muslim fanatics over the past decade or so. (Not enough time in the movie's 15 minutes to cover the countless previous atrocities committed in the name of Islam worldwide.) Wilders himself makes no verbal comment, only a few written sentences at the end serving as a summary and call to action. It needs to be emphasized that this movie represents words from Islamic scriptures and authorities themselves, highlighted by violence and oppression that appear to have been directly caused by those words.
(See the "Saharasia Today" or "Amazing Videos" sections)
If these weblinks to "Fitna" and "Islam" don't work after a few days, then do your own search on the term "Fitna" and it should come up somewhere. You'll also discover, from that web search, that Wilders is now under threat of imprisonment by the EU dhimmis for daring to speak Truth to Islamic power, which already got him a death-sentence from the "peaceful ones".
Be forewarned about "Fitna" - while it is only a reciting of Koran quotes followed by scenes of Islamic terror fulfilling those Koranic mandates, it does show parts of one beheading video -- but only the first parts where the head-choppers are reciting more Koran quotes, and mercifully spares you the bloody details. Also the scenes of people jumping to their deaths from the burning Twin Towers on 911, and train-goers in Madrid being blown up and incinerated. Scenes which either have been fully censored from th MSM, or which we saw only then, but which the MSM and its Islam-friendly multiculturalism doesn't want us reminded about. Upsets the sheep, didn't you know. We are constantly hearing from the Islamopologists that "Islam is a peaceful religion", and that their violence (in spite of being a "religion of peace") is due to Western provocations (in spite of their always quoting from the Koran, and attacking people who aren't "western"). Both of these films are an important reality-check. I'd also recommend "Obsession: Radical Islam's War Against the West" for which we also have the DVD at the bookstore (link given above). But here's a video trailer of that:
Obsession is in some ways the more hard-hitting and best of the Islam-critical videos, though it tends to be apologist towards "ordinary Islam" and "moderate Islam", even while ignoring why the "ordinary moderates" are so quiet and silent in the face of Islamic fanaticism and terror, or why really authentic "ordinary moderates" simply quit Islam altogether. As I say, it is not a "religion" but an all-encompassing political ideology demanding personal immersion into its framework of belief and behavior, and to which every aspect of life must be "submitted". Islam is, and means "submission".
Do we have a Cloaked Muslim as a Major Presidential Candidate?
I've deliberately steered clear of making any personal commentary about the current political elections, but the evidence on this particular subject, of Mr. Obama's Islamic connections, gets stronger every day. As a not-so-silent-observer of the current world situation, and able to make a general assessment of facial expressions relevant to character structure (ie, lying and concealment) I also find the materials which I am about to present coherent with my personal observations and gut feelings.
Basically, the evidence is now pretty strong that Mr. Barak Hussein Obama is either a closeted Muslim, a "Manchurian Candidate" whose whole persona is one of deception in order to grab power under false pretenses, or he is so far bent-over in sympathy with the Islamic causes that it practically makes no difference to the welfare and security of non-Islamic peoples the world over. His actions speak louder than words of denial, though his words are often not denials at all, but fully are in agreement with what is going to be revealed in this posting.
The mainstream media is avoiding to touch this subject, as if they knew the truth, but were deliberately concealing it out of shared sympathies -- or shared hatreds of ordinary American's healthy tendencies to reject political and religious extremists. When the question is even raised, the majority of mainstream journalists are in denial. I've seen them cock their head back and sneer, making derisive comments or laughter at the suggestion of Obama as a Muslim or Muslim-sympathizer, as if to bring up this question is tantamount to claiming the Earth is flat. They do the same about the greenhouse-gas theory of global warming, of course, and also when criticisms of HIV as the cause of AIDS are raised. People who raise such concerns are compared to a flat-Earth advocate, a denier of the moon-landings, or a Holocaust denier. And yet, from a purely Reichian perspective (that is what OBRL-News is about!) what does such back-arching, head-turning and sneering laughter cover up? Anxiety. And emotional denial, given the very clear media bias in favor of Mr. Obama, which the supporters of Ms. Clinton and Mr. McCain are fully aware. This same mass-media, I point out, is also generally sympathetic more to Islamic causes world-wide, and aggressively hostile towards any nation that dares to defend its very right to exist unmolested by Islamic terror, as with the USA and Israel. This does not appear to be coincidental, but appears underlain by similarities of character expression (or character armor) and emotional alliances with culture-types that are more overflooded with a hatred of life and love, than with the Western democratic home-culture which, albeit in imperfect and often damaged forms, at least offers the hope of love and a decent life for the overwhelming majority of its citizens.
Let's also not forget, in 1940, a closeted Red Fascist sympathizer, the pro-Soviet Henry A. Wallace managed to become Franklin D. Roosevelt's Vice President. Roosevelt changed his mind about Wallace by 1944, however, and so picked Harry Truman as his running mate for his last term in office. Roosevelt died shortly after winning the 1944 elections, however, and Truman became the next president, instead of Wallace. Wallace later exposed his hard-left views publicly, as editor of the left-wing New Republic magazine (which printed the infamous Brady articles smearing Wilhelm Reich), finally running for president in what was the CP-USA's front organization, the Progressive Party. Wallace eventually sank from public view, and finally gave an unbelievable mea-culpa in 1950, claiming he was now an anti-communist and simply did not know about "Stalin's excesses", when every other honest liberal knew of the COMINTERN's bloody crimes since the 1930s. It is hard to say how events would have unfolded if Wallace had become president of the USA. He had publicly announced to include Harry Dexter White and Lawrence Duggan into his cabinet, both of whom were later exposed as Soviet spys. Most certainly a Wallace presidency would have taken a communist-sympathetic attitude towards Soviet and Red Chinese aggressions in both East Europe and Asia, and today we would have a completely different world map, probably with the territory occupied by democracy and freedom being much more contracted in size.
How would a closeted Muslim President behave today? At minimum they could salt up the State Department, Pentagon and other executive branches with politically-correct and multicultural Islam-sympathetic personalities, or so-called "moderate Mullahs" engaged in Takiya (deception of the infidel) at this same time when the Islamic world is committing terrorist acts daily and globally, and is both energized and outward-pushing. Authentic critics of Islam would be silenced. Etc. It is not a small question, and honest people will want to know what I might be speaking about in the way of hard evidence. This is not something I would bring up merely on the basis of "empty opinions" which are a dime a dozen, but is based upon having a clear view of the Islamic world, and some knowledge of world history, how political fanatics conceal their real goals and infiltrate under a cloak.
With this in mind, I provide the following list of articles and links taken from both conservative and liberal news sources. Individually, they could be ignored. Taken together, they provide an alarming view. Review them, and do with the information as you feel best. This material speaks to questions far more devastating than the usual claims of a politician engaged in shady big-money deals, which possibly all the major candidates have their share of -- including Mr. Obama, but I deliberately do not include any of that here. My concern is foremost the issue of Islam, which I have become convinced, on the weight of evidence, is not any "religion" as we in the West have come to view it, but rather is an extremist and totalitarian political ideology bent upon world-conquest, similar to Nazism or Communism. And like Nazism and Communism, Islam has its share of deliberate deceivers and sneaks whose goal is to soften down the discussion, to blot out open consideration of their crimes and goals, and to make ridicule of those who raise the "wrong" questions. In this sense, if a candidate was a cloaked Nazi, or a Stalinist, people have a right to know. And if the ordinary news sources are deliberately blotting out this evidence, out of stupidity or ignorance or whatever, then those who know about it have a duty and responsibility to their fellows to make that evidence known. Whether you agree or disagree with my assessment of Islam is less the point, than the fact that this person of unquestionable Muslim family background appears to be concealing his current Islamic beliefs and connections, as well as his connections to Islam-friendly and very racist (against whites) "black liberation theology" which is a hideous corruption no better than old white racism of the Ku Klux Klan variety -- Mr. Obama is deliberately down-playing and obscuring those connections, and sometimes over-reacting when confronted with the facts, as in the variation of Shakespeare's Hamlet quotation: "methinks he doth protest too much". But, then, my strong views and concerns either sink or swim based upon the facts, as given below. Review them and make up your own mind.
I will try to stay away from these politically-related issues, but felt it was important to make this accumulated material better known. Hopefully, at least some components of the MSM will start to do their job, and the facts can emerge and be openly debated in the rough-and-tumble confrontations which, for better or worse, have come to characterize the American political landscape. I won't have time to engage in any debates or discussion on this, but readers are free to post their comments and have a debate (moderated, so be clear and kind) at the OBRL-blog. http://obrl.blogspot.com/
Obama favors an unholly alliance between Marxism and Islam
This article is very comprehensive, with web links and citations to original but very scattered-around news sources. Here is a topical list of the links, but you should go to the original weblink (above) for more details:
In "Obama's Muslim connection"I wrote, that Obama's foreign policy favours accommodation to Islam. Here's more information about the Democrats' likely nominee:
1 He surrounded himself with advisers who believe that US foreign policy is controlled by Jews and this must end.

7. "I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds change in an ugly direction". BARACK OBAMA from The Audacity Of Hope which is titled in Indonesia "Assault Hope: From Jakarta To The Whitehouse"?. It is arguable that "Assault Hope" means "Jihad".
8. Obama's Nation of Islam Staffers

Wafa Sultan, Islam Critic, Threatened With Death by "Moderates"...
"Islam is the problem."
Moderate Muslims and Mullahs:
"How Dare You To Say Such A Thing -- You Must Die!"
Here's what happens to authentic reformers in the Muslim world. "Blasphemers and Apostates Must Die!"
Reich spoke about the anxious fear of life, of sexual love and happiness, which exists around the world, including in the West, which led to the attitude of "Don't Touch It" -- to obscure it, run away from it, hide from it. But he also spoke about the Emotional Plague, where those rather ordinary character neurotic expressions were replaced, in the higher-energy individuals, with the impulse to kill that which dares to live life more fully, to destroy that which lives sexual happiness and love. To wipe out living life in all its expressions. In the West, those kinds of Emotional Plague characters are the minority, though they sometimes can seduced others into following them on their "mission" to destroy life and love. They tend always to be very seductive in their deceptions and smooth-talking lying, but will tend to be fully truthful with their plans to murder and destroy when speaking among their loyal following. Such is the nature of Islam, in the largest and even most "moderate" sense. As Wafa Sultan says, the problem is Islam, and not just "militant Islam" or "Islamic terrorists" or even just the "Wahhabi Islam". She comes to this conclusion by looking directly at the miserable slave-like condition of women in Islam, having grown up as a Muslim, and witnessed the non-stop horror-show, something which was clearly documented in my book "Saharasia" using standard cross-cultural data from the anthropologists.
Within Saharasia proper, within the Islamic world, the Emotional Plague is predominant. It is found more deeply rooted within Islam as an expression of daily life, the daily crushing down of every human impulse towards freedom, love and happiness, and is an expression of the extremely patriarchal authoritarian character structures of the average person. In those areas, the persons who would be identified in the West as either somewhat healthy, or the "ordinary character neurotic" constitutes only a minority. And most often, these softer characters are not Islamic, but Jewish, Christian, Druze, Asyrrian, Bahai, Coptic, etc., even though those same cultures are not entirely free of the emotional plague either -- it is only that they are not fully consumed by it, and they have character structures where more healthy behavior and social expressions have a chance to survive.
My own Saharasia cross-cultural research showed, how the Emotional Plague cultural attitudes develop specific social expressions -- in cruel and horrific assaults and traumas aimed at infants, children, adolescents, and women predominantly, with a consequent growth in social power of Big Man totalitarians. One predominant character expression within such sex-repressed and violent cultures is an "extreme insult sensitivity", which sends people into a ballistic murderous rage if they are "dishonored". Which means, if someone tells them the truth about their own wretched, miserable condition, exposing it to the public view.. If you say something they don't like, which basically is to speak the truth, the buried rage kept suppressed by virtue of their denial of their unhappy and wretched situations, is thrown into high excitation, after which the unconvincing grinning mask of the "peaceful ones" slips away, and out comes the daggers. The same is true, perhaps even more so, if one dares to actually live a more free and sexual life within eye-sight of the miserable ones. So the young woman who dares to occasionally throw off the head-schmata known as the veil, or who dares to smile or flirt with a young man outside the home, won't survive very long. Or the young man who listens to American rock music, and wears blue jeans and grows his hair longish, and who smiles too often at the girls, is targeted. Or anyone who dares to seek sexual love. Emphasis upon love.
So now, following a long line of dissenters against fascism of all varieties, and more recently a long list of strong and outspoken women, Wafa Sultan must run for her life. The Western politicians, meanwhile, will only throw contempt upon her head -- "she should have kept her mouth shut." That's exactly what the psychoanalysts said about Reich, after he wrote "Mass Psychology of Fascism". He should have kept his mouth shut, because "we are all trying our best to get along with the Nazis". This will get worse, and the ones with the shut mouths will not be spared.
This situation is EXACTLY as what dissenters against Nazism, including Wilhelm Reich, were facing in the 1930s. And almost exactly like the 1930s, nearly everyone is deaf and dumb about this situation.
Review the following for the details.
Wafa Sultan, speaking at the David Horowitz Center for Freedom, about Women in Islam.
Also review the other youtube items on Wafa Sultan in the "Related Videos" section of this above weblink. Here is the same video:
For daring to speak out, Wafa Sultan has come to the attention of one Sheik Yusuf al-Qaradawi -- a favorite "moderate mullah" of the left-wing Western news media, whose propaganda and falsehoods have graced the pages of nearly every liberal newspaper from the Seattle Post-Intelligencer and LA Times, to the Boston Globe and NY Times. al-Qaradawi recently made a speech on Al Jazeera TV (Terror TV) to denounce Wafa Sultan and to basically point a finger at her, declaring her to be a legitimate target for street-murder by any avenging Muslim who might wish to get a guaranteed free-pass to Heaven and claim his 72 virgins. This happens right as every Islamic and Leftist UN and EU leader -- a wretched bunch who long ago sold out their people to Islamic supremacy while lining their pockets with petrodollar bribery -- lines up to denounce the Fitna film by Geert Wilders, which puts clear substance behind Wafa Sultan's warnings to the West.
