Western People, Beware Islam, Stealing Your Governments
British people especially, these articles detail what's happening on your side of the pond.
Left-wing (and some conservative) prostitutes in all the Western governments are quite willing to sell us all into slavery, for the right price. Beware.
Islamic radicals 'infiltrate' the Labour Party
A Labour minister says his party has been infiltrated by a fundamentalist Muslim group that wants to create an "Islamic social and political order" in Britain.
By Andrew Gilligan
The Islamic Forum of Europe (IFE) - which believes in jihad and sharia law, and wants to turn Britain and Europe into an Islamic state - has placed sympathisers in elected office and claims, correctly, to be able to achieve "mass mobilisation" of voters.
Speaking to The Sunday Telegraph, Jim Fitzpatrick, the Environment Minister, said the IFE had become, in effect, a secret party within Labour and other political parties.
"They are acting almost as an entryist organisation, placing people within the political parties, recruiting members to those political parties, trying to get individuals selected and elected so they can exercise political influence and power, whether it's at local government level or national level," he said.
"They are completely at odds with Labour's programme, with our support for secularism."
Mr Fitzpatrick, the MP for Poplar and Canning Town, said the IFE had infiltrated and "corrupted" his party in east London in the same way that the far-Left Militant Tendency did in the 1980s. Leaked Labour lists show a 110 per cent rise in party membership in one constituency in two years.
In a six-month investigation by this newspaper and Channel 4's Dispatches, involving weeks of covert filming by the programme's reporters:
* IFE activists boasted to the undercover reporters that they had already "consolidated a lot of influence and power" over Tower Hamlets, a London borough council with a £1 billion budget.
* We have established that the group and its allies were awarded more than £10 million of taxpayers' money, much of it from government funds designed to "prevent violent extremism".
* IFE leaders were recorded expressing opposition to democracy, support for sharia law or mocking black people. The IFE organised meetings with extremists, including Taliban allies, a man named by the US government as an "unindicted co-conspirator" in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, and a man under investigation by the FBI for his links to the September 11 attacks.
* Moderate Muslims in London told how the IFE and its allies were enforcing their hardline views on the rest of the local community, curbing behaviour they deemed "un-Islamic". The owner of a dating agency received a threatening email from an IFE activist, warning her to close it.
* George Galloway, a London MP, admitted in recordings obtained by this newspaper that his surprise victory in the 2005 election owed more to the IFE "than it would be wise - for them - for me to say, adding that they played a "decisive role" in his triumph at the polls.
Here's a longer list of web-linked articles on what's been going on... are you listening!
Muslim Subversion, Sedition and Social Sabotage - Islam is the Enemy Within
The influential Muslim Brotherhood is an umbrella organisation controlling many diverse 'peaceful' Muslim organisations in the West.
They have stated that their work in the West is a "kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within, and sabotaging its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God's religion is made victorious over all other religions." -- "An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Brotherhood in North America," by Mohamed Akram, May 19, 1991.
We normally think of Jihad as being acts of violence carried out by bombers, but their are many forms of stealth Jihad which are non-violent and often legal. Indeed lawfare and litigation jihad use our own laws against us.
Let's take a look at how rapid and successful is the progress of the Islamic campaign being waged from within our own borders:

History Lessons: The Revolutionary Holocaust and Soviet Story
The 20th Century saw the irruption of three major totalitarian impulses, leading to massive war, genocide and death. Nazism, Marxist-Communism, and Islam. All three cooperated with each other towards their shared goals of global conquest, even as they also fought against each other. One of them is gone, but two more remain with us, continuing their slaughter and global trouble-making.
Of the three, the youngest one -- Nazism or National Socialism -- was destroyed upon its effort to conquer Europe. Most people will know and loathe the Nazi movement, and are glad it is gone. I fully agree.
However, the philosophy of Marx-Engels, which in fact always was a totalitarian impulse, and which led to a slaughter of human life maybe four times as great as that of the Nazis, hardly gets any criticism at all. In some faux-intellectual circles, Communism is "fashionable", chic! and something the coffey-house revolutionaries will have "interesting conversations" about, even as they hungrily devour, believe and recommend to others the primary modern propagandists for hard Red Fascism -- such as Howard Zinn or Noam Chomsky. But the excuse is always made, the wonderful ideas of Marx and Engels were perverted by a bad Stalin and bad Mao. And Trotsky tried to stop Stalin, and would have been different if he had got the power. Those also are Marxist lies. Marx and Engels knew fully well that bloodshed and violence would be necessary to institute their Communism, and they wrote about this issue explicitly in their lesser-known articles and papers. The primary "Ten Points" of their Communist Manifesto
, which is perhaps the most widely-read of their publications, could never be implemented on a voluntary basis, and would by their very nature require mass killings and dictatorship. (Read it for yourself, here
, if you haven't, and then realize how YOU would be turned into a worker-bee at gunpoint, by non-working hooligans-in-government.) And Trotsky, who came later, showed his true soul by taking the job as Lenin's executioner, as Top Generalisimo of the drunken mob of pistoleros known as the Red Army, who slaughtered, on his orders, not just hundreds of thousands of "counter revolutionary agitators" but anyone who dared to resist their communism, including their families and children. As with the Kronstadt sailors, who supported Trotsky, but in the end finally realized what a monster they had created. Too Late!! Every Marxist-Communist state which ever has been established was forced to shoot its way into power, and then to liberally use the gun to stay in power. They knew "Revolutionary Terror" (their term) was "the way", even as "peace-Marxism" was the propaganda.
The facts on this are now out and known, thanks to the marvels of internet. The old "rumpled suit" scholars whom everyone ignored over decades now have a voice, to counter the Red-supporting revisionism as it comes from the beauty-masked Hollywood stars, and Red-inspired textbooks. Some aspects of global Communism were defeated when brave souls in the old East Block and Soviet Union finally stood up and said "Enough!" But we still have Red Fascism in the slave-states of Mainland China, SE Asia, North Korea, and Cuba, with parts of Latin America sliding precariously close to the same. And many in Europe and North America hungrily want Marxism as well.
Islam is the oldest of the three totalitarianisms, more clearly Saharasian in formulation and impulse. While its largest organized expression -- the Ottoman Empire -- was swept away and destroyed after WW-I, the diverse nations created from that rotting corpse remained in unified spirit through the repressive cement of global Islam. Islam was the central ideology and organizing principle for Ottoman dictatorship, by virtue of the claimed mantle of authority over the global Islamic Umma, or Caliphate. Today, under the organizational structure of the Muslim Brotherhood and its dozens of splinter terrorist groups, Islam is reconstituting the Caliphate even as the various "Nationalist" institutional structures remain in place as a facade, to acquire foreign aid and technology from the very infidel nations they seek to overwhelm. It is expansionist and aggressive, creating havoc and murder along their borders, and just as with Nazism and Communism, hungry for conquest of new territory.
The evidence for this configuration is overwhelming, for those who have eyes to see, and ears to hear. But of course, reliance upon the mainstream media is tantamount to eating the free fodder in the stockyard, but never casting a gaze towards the slaughter-house. The Awful Truth, reported daily with depressing regularity, is typically found here:
For today, however, the history lesson is about global Communism only.
Here are two excellent documentary DVDs, which provide a summary of the problem.
The Soviet Story, directed by Edvins Snore, is an even more heavily documented review of the role of Marx-Engels ideology in the later Lenin-Trotsky-Stalin genocides. Here's a descriptive blurb from the producer:
This award-winning documentary by director Edvins Snore and tells the story of the Soviet regime and how the Soviet Union helped Nazi Germany instigate the Holocaust. Other subjects covered by the film include: - The Great Famine in Ukraine (1932/33) - The Katyn massacre (1940) - The SS-KGB partnership - French Communists and the Nazis - Soviet mass deportations - Medical experiments in the GULAG. The Soviet Story was filmed over 2 years in Russia, Ukraine, Latvia, Germany, France, UK and Belgium. The film includes recently uncovered archive documents as well as interviews with former Soviet Military intelligence officials. As a result, The Soviet Story presents a truly unique insight into recent Soviet history, told by people, once Soviet citizens, who have first-hand knowledge of it.
Here's a 4 minute YouTube introduction:
The full movie of 110 minutes is available for purchase as a DVD from the OBRL bookstore, here:
The Revolutionary Holocaust -- this one is posted free on internet. It is a documentary organized by the conservative radio-talker and Fox News opinionater, Glen Beck. Regardless of what you think of him on other issues, the Revolutionary Holocaust is accurate and substantial, developed through consultation with world-class experts on the subject material, and I highly recommend it. He draws heavily upon the materials gathered by Edvin Snore in "The Soviet Story" above, but it contains much additional material.
Here's a summary video:
And a website where the full program can be viewed:
Also here's a page where you can review the sources and backgrounds of the contributing authorities.
Both of these documentaries carry quotes from Marx and Engels, Trotsky, and other leading liberal-left-socialists of the WW-II period, which are indistinguishable from those of Gobbels or Hitler. They document how the left-communists in fact implemented their slaughters and genocides for a period of around 20 years before the Hitlerites came to power, and then made happy alliances with Hitler in united opposition against the world's liberal democracies, or emerging democracies. The Left-Socialists rode the coat-tails of the originally largely peaceful Russian Revolution, and then stepped in with the gun to throw out the moderate Kerensky, shooting their way into power, betraying everyone, and doing so exactly in the manner as Marx and Engels boasted would be necessary and desirable. They -- the socialist left-wing and communists -- not merely blandly expressed the view that large numbers of people, including entire ethnic groups would have to be exterminated in order for the "Revolution" to succeed, but once they got the chance, they actually began doing it. This "philosophy" started at the earliest periods of their organizations with Marx and Engels, and is not something which merely appeared later on, with Stalin. We all know Stalin and Mao were mass-murderers, but the role of Marx-Engels in laying the plans and being the architects for the "Revolutionary Holocaust", and that of Lenin as well as Trotsky in implementing the programs of slaughter well before Stalin gained power, has been systematically obscured by Marxist and Left-sympathetic writers. These documentaries help blow the lid off that cover-up.
I strongly suggest, do not watch these documentaries with children in the room. They are simply too brutal. But make sure any older teens who flirt with Marxism, or wear Che Guevara t-shirts, or whose teachers are recommending they read Red propaganda as a substitute for authentic history, get a complete look.
Here's a few alarming but lesser-known quotations from the "founding fathers" of communism, which go to the core of the problem:
"... the very cannibalism of the counterrevolution will convince the nations that there is only one way in which the murderous death agonies of the old society and the bloody birth throes of the new society can be shortened, simplified and concentrated, and that way is revolutionary terrorism". - Karl Marx, "The Victory of the Counter-Revolution in Vienna," Neue Rheinische Zeitung, November 7, 1848.
"Among all the nations and sub-nations of Austria, only three standard-bearers of progress took an active part in history, and are still capable of life -- the Germans, the Poles and the Magyars. Hence they are now revolutionary. All the other large and small nationalities and peoples are destined to perish before long in the revolutionary world storm [or "revolutionary holocaust" J.D.] For that reason they are now counter-revolutionary. Š these residual fragments of peoples always become fanatical standard-bearers of counter-revolution and remain so until their complete extirpation or loss of their national characterŠ [A general war will] wipe out all these racial trash [Völkerabfälle] down to their very names. The next world war will result in the disappearance from the face of the earth not only of reactionary classes and dynasties, but also of entire reactionary peoples. And that, too, is a step forward." - Friedrich Engels, "The Magyar Struggle," Neue Rheinische Zeitung, January 13, 1849
"As for us, we were never concerned with the Kantian-priestly and vegetarian-Quaker prattle about the 'sacredness of human life.' We were revolutionaries in opposition, and have remained revolutionaries in power. ... this problem can only be solved by blood and iron." - Leon Trotsky, Dictatorship Vs, Democracy (Terrorism and Communism): A Reply to Karl Kautsky, London: Workers Party of America, NY, 1922, p.63 (Reprint from a c.1920 London edition with the alarming title: In Defense of Terrorism) Reprint publication from Cornell University Library, Digital Collections Edition, NY, 2009.
Got that? See any difference here from Hitler or Gobbels? This is the unmasked face of Marx, Lenin and Trotsky, well known to the central committee cadres of every Marxist- Left- Communist- Socialist organization on the planet, but concealed from their clamoring mobs of camp-followers and "useful idiots" (their term). And these are only three such quotes out of literally dozens of others, many far worse, overflowing with race-hatred, advocating black slavery and expressing Jew-hatred, etc. For added details on that see:
Marx and Friends in their Own Words:
More to come .....
Majority says government a threat to citizens' rights
The peasants are getting upset....
And this is from a CNN poll, which is typically liberal-left propaganda outfit.
CNN Poll: Majority says government a threat to citizens' rights
Washington (CNN) - A majority of Americans think the federal government poses a threat to rights of Americans, according to a new national poll.
Fifty-six percent of people questioned in a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Friday say they think the federal government's become so large and powerful that it poses an immediate threat to the rights and freedoms of ordinary citizens. Forty-four percent of those polled disagree.
The survey indicates a partisan divide on the question: only 37 percent of Democrats, 63 percent of Independents and nearly 7 in 10 Republicans say the federal government poses a threat to the rights of Americans.
The problem is not just the liberal Big Government Democrats, but also the liberal Big Government Republicans. The item below indicates how the former Republican candidate for Prez. now is seeking a "new issue" he can get voters to rally around, to boost his sinking poll numbers in the Arizona election later this year.
Beware of McCain's Freedom-Destroying Dietary Supplement Regulatory Bill
So he now wants to "regulate" vitamins and herbs. But with the FDA in charge, that means you'll have to go to your local MD to get a prescription, and then purchase them at a pharmacy, at prices 10 times what you pay today at the health food stores, or via on-line catalogs. And instead of getting the health-promoting 1000mg Vitamin C capsules, or 1000iu of E, which are typically freely available in the USA, you'll only be "allowed" something with one-tenth that amount. This already is the case in Europe. Even the FDA language reflects this Big Brother attitude. When I was young, the FDA set a "Minimum Daily Requirement" of Vitamin quantities. That was the amount you needed every day just to stay minimally healthy, and it reflected a rational outlook. Today, the vitamin numbers are the same but it has been re-cast into Orwellian double-speak, and is called "Recommended Daily Allowance". Got that? All you young ones who want more socialism, can you figure out what is going on in those simple changes of phrase? What once was the bare-bones requirement to keep you alive, is now what Big Brother "recommends" as your "allowance". Here you go, and that's all you are allowed. They'd like to change that into the "Maximum Permissible Dose", where compulsion with punishments for the disobedient can be instituted, but have not (yet) the power to do so.
Doesn't that make you feel a whole lot better, that someone in Big Government cares about you so much? Long Live Big Brother!
It reminds me of the title of this important book:

Euro-Med Partnership for Accelerating Muslim Immigration
A warning to Europe, you are being sold out by your left-wing leaders into Islamic Sharia Law.
Muslim Europe - by Jamie Glazov
Interview with Pamela Geller
Mass Exodus of Jews from Europe, Sweden in particular due to
Muslim Violence Targeting Jews - Islamic Brownshirt Movement
Non-Jews should worry -- you are next on the list.
Not just in Europe, but world-wide, North America, Australia, Latin America, Africa, East and SE Asia... the Saharasian Islamic Expansion, fueled by petro-dollars. An old pattern:
Raw Milk Wars
Here's an interesting blog which picked up Dr. Richard Schwartzman's piece on raw milk, which discusses the Emotional Plague nature of the Food Police, and has many other items of interest on the subject.
Raw milk products are definitely highly recommended. Locally all we can find is some cheese items at the health food store. They definitely taste far better and it does make one aware that eating the other cheese which has been Pasteurized leaves you with a somewhat congested feeling. Some people with milk allergies report eating the raw stuff does not provoke them at all, and so they can quit with the allergy pills. Health improves all around, and that's another reason why Big Government and Big Medicine are against it.
It seems the larger government becomes, the more they poke their nose into everything you do. Friends from old East Germany report the common parlance, which you could hardly say out loud in the Red Fascist state, was that the "government wants to regulate you down into your underwear". That phrase also captures some deeper understanding that the basic problem with Big Government advocates is sexual in nature. Their own sexual lives are an ungratified mess, which leads them to HATE ordinary people who do have some heart-felt love in their lives. So they've gone plaguey and devote their lives to acquire power over everyone else. And once they can do so, they feel compelled to go around ordering everyone about, to "stop" this or "do" that. With government, the Emotional Plague character gains the power of the policeman's billy club.
I remember a discussion years ago with Prof. John Bell who formerly taught a course on "The Life and Work of Wilhelm Reich" at New York University, on how this trend of EP characaters gaining more and more power could be halted, how the emotional plague in government could be tamed and removed. This was in the 1970s, when government was far smaller, and we were then concerned about the FDA's war against natural healing methods. And surely FDA power has gotten far worse over my lifetime, as we creep closer and closer to a fully-blown communist state, and where our young ones have no idea how so many of their hard-left icons are like the Pied Piper, leading them down into hell (ie, Chomsky, Zinn, Moore, etc.). Anyhow, Prof. Bell's solution was direct and to the point. Chop the federal budget down to nearly nothing, via meat-cleaver methods. All the rest is talk. If you give government money beyond the basics, they WILL turn it towards power-motivations. That you can bet upon.
Like when the Federal government passed "drug seizure laws" permitting them to "seize" money from suspected drug dealers. Yeah, that sounds "good". Stop the big drug lords by taking away their ill-gotten gains. But this law was quickly turned by the FDA as a means to smash down unorthodox medical pioneers using natural healing methods they did not approve of. So they would impound bank accounts and seize office and laboratory equipment from natural health clinics, acting upon "tips" from the AMA or local hospitals when some physician used an "unapproved drug" for treatments. And this wasn't like a doctor using thalidomide or DES to treat women with an irregular menses or infertility, which was typical, and generated tumors later on. None of those "doctors" ever were assaulted by the FDA or medical licensing boards. No, they used the "drug seizure laws" to go after physicians who used Vitamin C or E to treat a disorder. If it was cheap and worked, it was considered equal to selling heroin or meth to school-kids, and SWAT teams came out to smash people down. Well, I've already written on that subject:
They are starting today doing the same with respect to raw milk products. And it coincides with yet another gigantic burst in funding and power for the unelected bureaucracy, which grows and grows. Like a tumor on the body. Seemingly little things like "raw milk" can be a threat to their power. It is health-promoting, and "disobedience" and so "must be stopped" by their Emotional Plague hate-impulses.
Support your local raw milk networks. Save your health, and defeat the FDA and other government bully-boys. And stop electing anyone who wants more of your money. Don't feed the government tumor.

BBC Climate Fraud and Two Heretics: McIntyre and McKitrick
Today, now, I am fully willing to use that word. Fraud.
And for the oldest reason in the book: Money.
Follow the money.
Follow the money: BBC exposed in biggest climate racket on planet
by JOHN O'SULLIVAN on FEBRUARY 12, 2010
The world is learning fast that climate pseudo-science is fraught with fraud. The best way to go to the heart of any moneymaking scam is to follow the money. Let's go on a journey from the toilet of the United Nations to the BBC's top floor.
For non-British readers the BBC extorts an annual compulsory license fee of £142.50 (US $200) per household via government legislation for the privilege of owning a television.
The BBC Pension Trust is worth about £8 billion while its mainstream operations are struggling to reverse an estimated £2 billion deficit as reported on last weekend by James Delingpole of the 'Telegraph.'
The BBC's handsome pension pot is invested in the Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change (IIGCC) alongside another 50 plus member funds. The total assets of this consortium is around ¤4 trillion (Euros), that in turn are invested in a larger consortium known as 'UNEP FI' worth about $15 trillion (US).
UNEP FI is fast becoming seriously embarrassed with its strong ties to the now discredited Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) that lurches from one climate data fraud scandal to another. Nonetheless, the UNEP FI puts on a smug face and gleefully describes itself as, "a global partnership between UNEP and the financial sector. Over 180 institutions, including banks, insurers and fund managers, work with UNEP to understand the impacts of environmental and social considerations on financial performance."
The UNEP FI Insurance Working Group boasts of its "ground-breaking report" on its website that I well recommend reading. These swindlers advise that there is a "complex relationship" between environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors, core insurance operations, and the insurance industry. Yes, and it has become so much more complex since climate scientists destroyed their fudged data and refused to obey lawful freedom of information requests for over seven years.
Despite the string of calamities that have befallen the UN since the Climategate scandal first broke last November, the UNEP FI consortium is feverishly demanding that governments impose higher fuel duties and caps on carbon emissions that will encourage scarcity and demand. Thus this profit-chasing unholy alliance of conspirators will still be able to cream off some of the loot for their green pension scams. The losers in the biggest Ponzi scheme of all time are western taxpayers and Third World poor who will likely suffer starvation and disease due to the increased costs of food and essential medicines.
The chairman of IIGCC and BBC head of pensions investment Peter Dunscombe said:
"The credibility of emissions trading schemes would be greatly improved with a robust price signal as well as clear and frequent communication from the regulator on trading data and improved transparency over direct government participation in schemes."
Yes, you did read that correctly: "IIGCC chairman and BBC head of pensions investment Peter Dunscombe"
The BBC is in the chair of this carbon trading driven investment scheme. Now you know why the BBC's thought police have been censoring climate skeptics shamelessly for years.
UKIP's Member of the European Parliament, Godfrey Bloom was vilified by the warmist press for refusing to back down from his attack on the BBC in the UK's fine Daily Telegraph, in which he said:
"The BBC has blocked skeptics of climate change for four years now, no debate is allowed on the BBC. It is biased reporting and it is censorship."
Speaking to Left Foot Forward, Mr Bloom continued:
"I absolutely stand by what I said. This is one of the most important subjects since the war. The whole thing has been a complete farce and a cover-up. Name me one instance of an informed debate on the subject?"
But Godfrey Bloom is now being entirely vindicated as we see that the BBC has been shamelessly plugging its own profiteering agenda and ignoring any dissent even when it involves news stories of great interest to its viewers and listeners. And all for the so-greater good of that 'Low-Carbon Economy.' The statement reads:
"it is imperative that efforts advance this year to negotiate and conclude a legally binding agreement with ambitious greenhouse gas emission reduction targets."
The BBC's Peter Dunscombe, as Chair of the IIGCC, endorses (he may have even written) that in his pension trust's policy statements that:
"Without government actions, however, private-sector investment will not reach the scale required to address climate change effectively."
You got that? Climate change has to be addressed "effectively," i.e. effective for his pension pot. With a shameful hidden agenda like that its no wonder viewers are abandoning television and coming to the internet for impartial news reporting. This self-serving hypocrite baloney goes further:
".we remain firmly convinced that climate change presents both material risks and significant opportunities for investment portfolios"
The 'risks" it seems are wholly upon gullible taxpayers, the incentives for BBC newsreaders, environment correspondents, journalists, planners, schedulers, documentary program makers, etc. is enormous. No wonder the BBC produces the best environmental television in the world-a BBC employee would think: 'investment portfolios!'
Meanwhile, something for all our readers in North America: a story waiting to be written concerning that other vast consortium in the U.S. known as the Investor Network on Climate Risk (INCR). INCR has over 80 members and $8 trillion in assets across its network of North American private funds and very much tied up with UNEP FI. So for anyone wondering why the American mainstream media has done diddly to report on the great climate swindle, I'm betting it's something to do with INCR.
For U.S. readers looking to know more about what INCR is doing you may contact:
Mindy Lubber at firstname.lastname@example.org
For European readers would like to know more about the Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change (IIGCC) we suggest you contact:
Stephanie Pfeifer at email@example.com
Those British organizations tied into IIGCC who may have a conflict of interest when they communicate with you include the following:

* BT Pension Scheme
* Central Finance Board of the Methodist Church
* Corporation of London Pension Fund

The Heretics: McIntyre and McKitrick
When the infamous hockey-stick graph that purported to prove that human activities are causing runaway global warming was finally broken, there is some irony in the fact that a couple of Canadians did the breaking. Retired mining engineer Steve McIntyre and Ross McKitrick, Professor of Economics at the University of Guelph, have been a thorn in the side of global warming alarmists for years. McIntyre, McKitrick and, more often, the acronym "M&M" to refer to the pair, are the subject of many discussions in the e-mails released from the University of East Anglia's Climate Research Unit (CRU) last November.
Reading the e-mails, it quickly becomes clear that leading alarmist scientists, like Michael Mann at Penn State and Phil Jones at the CRU, seemed positively obsessed - almost to the point of appearing deranged at times - with discrediting McIntyre and McKitrick. For example, when the pair published their first hockey stick busting paper in 2003, Mann sent an angry e-mail to his colleagues, telling them how to deal with MM: "The important thing is to deny that this has any intellectual credibility whatsoever and, if contacted by any media, to dismiss this for the stunt that it is." ...
What did McIntyre and McKitrick do to put these climatologists on the defensive? To understand the significance of their work, we have to delve into global warming theory a bit. The disaster scenarios that alarmists predict can not be proven in real time. These scenarios are based on computer models that are horrendously complex and, even if modeling results match up with actual data during this year or that, it still proves nothing in terms of long-term trends. ....

The Cloward/Piven Strategy of Economic Destruction
Biedermann und die Brandstifter
One of my favorite small books is The Arsonists by the Swiss playwright Max Frisch, a short play which can be read in a few hours. The original title was Biedermann und die Brandstifter. Written in 1958, it is an abject lesson on how ill-informed "do-good" impulses and guilt-ridden emotions, mixed with fearful timidity in the face of aggressive pathology, immobilize people under the persuasion of smooth-talking emotional plague characters. Bioenergetically, it is similar to the way a mouse freezes at the moment before a snake would strike. The result is then a social catastrophe.
Biedermann is a decent fellow, a respected member of the community with a loving wife and flourishing business. He is self-assured and always ready to help others. Confident in his moral compass, never daring to ask a difficult question, nothing can get to him. He is a great philanthropist, happy to fulfill his civic duty and give shelter to two new houseguests whom he knows nothing about. And when they start filling the attic with petrol drums, he feels troubled -- but certainly such nice chaps could not be the ones burning down houses in the neighborhood! So he is only happy to help them wire the fuses, and even ignores his troubled feeling when handing them the requested book of matches. Frisch's play about our accommodating the very thing that will destroy us was written in 1958, but touches so deeply upon the human condition, its lessons are contemporary.
naturally raises open consideration of Wilhelm Reich's discussions on the Emotional Plague of Mankind, which lies at the foundation of every fascist social movement -- left or right-wing -- and was masterfully laid bare in his books Character Analysis, Mass Psychology of Fascism, and also Murder of Christ.
Fascism is not merely one ruthless character who lies and befuddles everyone. He is carried forth on the shoulders of the willing masses, who drink deep of his superficial charm and messages of great empowerment and salvation, and enact the plague's programs, even while "fires keep breaking out in the neighborhood". "You don't really believe I would light a match right now, with all that gasoline lying around, do you? This is for getting rid of the vermin of the neighborhood, not You, my friend! Just what kind of person do you think I am...? Really have you become so cynical towards your fellow mankind?"
In a world so happily running, or slouching towards a new Socialist Utopia, Frisch's play helps ring the alarm bells.
The OBRL bookstore just got a small quantity of copies of The Arsonists, in the "Saharasia Today" section, here:

Offshoots #2, Free Download
The #2 issue of Offshoots of Orgonomy has just been posted to our website, available for free downloading as a 40.5 MB PDF. This publication was produced by the late Lois Wyvell, Wilhelm Reich's personal secretary, who passed away in 2005. The publication sold only a limited number of copies, and the remaining inventory sat in boxes in basement location for several years, before being rescued, cleaned up and offered again to the public. A total of 15 issues were published, filled with interesting articles by both professionals and laypeople, students of orgonomy and "old hands" familiar with Reich's work over decades.

Letter to a Friend on Global Warming
The name has been changed, to protect the guilty.
Regarding the problems with CO2 global warming theory, I would reference any number of books and documentaries which are available from the various weblinks of scientific merit on this matter:
See the right-hand list under "Natural Science" where the top ten or so are focused on this issue.
And of course, review the OBRL-News blog archive for what's appeared in just the last year.
Also, assuming you are not living on the West Coast USA, West of the Rocky Mountains -- which is about the only place in the Northern Hemisphere remaining a bit warm this season -- you could take a walk outside and ask why it is substantially colder in violation of the CO2 theory, which predicts a constant warming, without the kind of leveling-off and even cooling as we have seen over the last ten years actually.
Here's also the first segment of a very good multi-part YouTube worth watching, with Prof. Tim Ball, one of the Evil Doing Devil-Worshiping Baby-Eating Climate-Deniers:
Just as a reminder, and you can quote me: You can tell you are being spoon-fed a bunch of propaganda when it makes you behave like a "One Way" finger-pointing religious fanatic on issues of policy or science, when you not merely disagree with someone, but start to feel burning anger in your guts, when you feel so damned self-righteous even though you haven't personally investigated both sides of the issue, and also start to demonize those whom you disagree with, based upon other propaganda which claims those "others" are evil. And that's always been the problem with both sides of the political split -- left and right. However on this climate issue the problem is definitely the self-righteous left wing politic, which has demonized any scientific critic as something like a "holocaust denier", who ought to be locked up for their contrary views.

Geert Wilders: on trial for telling the truth
A must-read article, especially for Europeans...
Islam crushes everyone's freedom, and the majority of our political leadership are either totally blinkered and dumb, or taking bribes to support the Islamification.

Geert Wilders: on trial for telling the truth
By Douglas Murray
There is nothing hyperbolic in stating that a trial which has just started in Holland will have unparalleled significance for the future of Europe. It is not just about whether our culture will survive, but whether we are even allowed to state the fact that it is being threatened.
The trial of Geert Wilders has garnered hardly any attention in the mainstream press here. Fortunately the blogosphere can correct some of this.
Wilders is a Dutch MP and leader of Holland's fastest-growing party, the Party for Freedom. Just a few years ago he was the sole MP for his party. The latest polls show that his party could win the biggest number of seats of any party in Holland when the voters next go to the polls.
His stances have clearly chimed with the Dutch people. They include an end to the era of mass immigration, an end to cultural relativism, and an end to the perceived suborning of European values to Islamic ones. For saying this, and more, he has for many years had to live under round-the-clock security protection. Which you would have thought proves the point to some extent. ...
Raw Milk Drinkers are coming! Beware....
Are you a demonic "Raw Milk Drinker"? Sounds subversive! (Not really)
The real demons are the Federal bully-boys in Canada and the USA who send in SWAT teams to arrest raw milk drinkers and sellers.
The Complete Patient blog has many informative articles on the raw milk issue, including a discussion by Prof. Joseph Heckman with mention of WR. See the entry for Feb. 1st.
Also note the entry for 22 Jan, which covers the recent Canadian legal decision allowing raw milk sales.
Islamic Sex-Repression and Terrorism
"The bomb wasn't the only thing burning in his pants."
A validation of Reich's sex-economic findings, from unexpected sources down under (no pun intended). Immense boiling hatred directed against those who live freer sexual lives.
Frustration fuels acts of hatred
The 23-year-old Nigerian charged with trying to detonate a bomb on a Northwest Airlines flight over Detroit on Christmas Day was lonely and sexually repressed, according to messages left on an Islamic website.
As a US Senate Homeland Security committee continued to argue this week about how to handle Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the emotional anguish in his web posts provides an insight into fanatical Islam and what drives often hapless young men to become suicide bombers. Much as we would like them to be, they are not monsters.
Being the son of a wealthy banker, and living in London, Abdulmutallab had no real beef with Western life, did not complain about racism or express concern for downtrodden Muslim brothers.
But, like the September 11 bombers, who visited strip clubs before their date with destiny, when his devout religious beliefs conflicted with his corporeal desires, he found that blowing himself up along with a whole lot of infidels was preferable to being sexually frustrated.
As the New York Post put it: "The bomb wasn't the only thing burning in his pants."
On the Islamic Forum of the Gawaher website in 2005 and 2006 were more than 300 posts by Farouk1986 - Abdulmutallab's middle name and birth year.
Under the heading: "I think I feel lonely," Farouk1986 complains he has never found "a true Muslim friend".
"As I get lonely, the natural sexual drive awakens and I struggle to control it, sometimes leading to minor sinful activities like not lowering the gaze.
"And this problem makes me want to get married to avoid getting aroused but I am only 18.'' In another post, he writes ''the hair of a woman can easily arouse a man''.
He also writes of "my dilemma between liberalism and extremism how should one put the balance right?"
He talks at one point about his fantasies: ''The bad part of it is sometimes the fantasies are a bit worldly rather than concentrating in the hereafter.''
He tries instead to focus on more acceptable "jihad fantasies''.
''I imagine how the great jihad will take place, how the Muslims will win Insha'Allah and rule the whole world, and establish the greatest empire once again!!!"
As the youngest of 16 children and the son of his father's No. 2 wife, he reportedly spent most of his childhood at an English boarding school in West Africa. The trajectory to extreme violence of this gentle, pious young man who wanted so much to be good and consequential, and yet was consumed with guilt about sex, fits with much of what is known about other Islamist suicide bombers.
Perhaps the best psychological explanation comes from United in Hate: The Left's Romance with Tyranny and Terror, the recent book by Jamie Glazov, the managing editor of FrontPage Magazine.
In a chapter entitled "To Hate a Woman", he describes in chilling detail the oppression of women in parts of the Muslim world and the "theological justification" for violence against females "from the very moment of their birth".
Islamist hatred of women has "fertilised the soil in which terrorism and the new death cult have grown".
He claims there is an "Islamist war on private love [which] derives most of its energy from a deep-seated misogyny. Women's empowerment, independence and self-determination, especially the sexual variety, pose a threat to Islamism's very existence."
Islamist misogyny, he claims, comes from Islam itself. "The notion that women are by their very nature inferior to men is the underpinning of the entire structure and derives its legitimacy from numerous traditional teachings."
It is no coincidence that the Arabic word "fitna" has two meanings - beautiful woman and social chaos.
Glazov writes that in many Islamic societies, "women are supposed to dehumanise themselves in order to be tolerated Women are considered to be the incarnation of shahwa [desire] which comes from the devil. In this environment the pathological notion arises that a man and a woman cannot be alone without the ominous threat of evil in their midst.
"The men denigrate the object of their lust so as to diminish their own shame. In this dynamic of sexual repression and misogyny, love is reduced to violent domination which becomes directly intertwined with terrorism against societies that allow women freedom, especially sexual freedom."
Practices such as polygamy and repudiation - in which a man can divorce his wife by pronouncing certain words - conspire to "minimise the possibility of private love even among married couples".
"Islam teaches that the sexual act is dirty and consequently surrounds it with rituals. The objective is to build a wall between the lovers themselves."
Polygamy, Glazov writes, has a disastrous effect on Muslim boys who grow up with "all kinds of siblings born of different women which gives them the idea that none of these women, including their own mother, was good enough to be cherished alone. The boys internalise this misogyny which leads in turn to self hate."
Their psychological abandonment of their mothers is "directly connected to their urge for terror and suicide".
Female genital mutilation, in which a woman's clitoris - or entire external genital organs - is removed is an attempt to "deny women even the possibility of personal happiness and sexual satisfaction".
Glazov writes of Saudi instructional TV programs about wife-beating and cites a report from the Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences which estimated 90 per cent of Pakistani wives had been beaten or sexually abused for offences such as cooking an unsatisfactory meal.
These stories are not remote from Australian concerns. The Islamic Women's Welfare Council of Victoria, in a 2008 report, since removed from its website, concluded that some Australian Muslim religious leaders condoned rape within marriage, polygamy and domestic violence.
In gang rape trials, Muslim men have mounted the defence that their strict religious upbringing made them believe they could rape Australian non-Muslim girls.
This week, in Melbourne, an Afghan refugee is being tried for allegedly strangling his wife with her veil after complaining she was "becoming Australian". The jury was told the victim had claimed her husband punched her and told her her only purpose was to have babies.
