Bolivia Freezing Disaster – Global Cooling?

August 28, 2010

At our location in rural Oregon, we have lit the wood-stove over the last several nights, to keep warm. Like I said many times, we may all be praying for global warming… But I imagine the Tax-Man will figure a way to grab more of our meager income even without the cap-and-trade scam. Meanwhile, one lonely sunspot now cruising across the face of the Sun, which should be boiling with them at this point in the cycle….

Cold empties Bolivian rivers of fish

Antarctic cold snap kills millions of aquatic animals in the Amazon.

Anna Petherick

With high Andean peaks and a humid tropical forest, Bolivia is a country of ecological extremes. But during the Southern Hemisphere’s recent winter, unusually low temperatures in part of the country’s tropical region hit freshwater species hard, killing an estimated 6 million fish and thousands of alligators, turtles and river dolphins.

Scientists who have visited the affected rivers say the event is the biggest ecological disaster Bolivia has known, and, as an example of a sudden climatic change wreaking havoc on wildlife, it is unprecedented in recorded history.

More on the NYC “Cordoba House” Victory Mosque

August 18, 2010

Here’s a lengthy report, a downloadable PDF, detailing the terrorism and radical ties of the Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, who is leader of this "Cordoba House" Victory Mosque program.

Feisal Abdul Rauf – an investigative report

Robert Spencer has more info, especially debunking the "peaceful Sufi" myths:
http://www.jihadwatch.org/2010/08/ny-times-rauf-is-a-sufi-so-ground-zero-mega-mosque-is-a-ok.html (review the comments also for interesting info) Here’s another by Andrew Bostom debunking at length the "peaceful Sufis" hogwash.
http://www.jihadwatch.org/2005/02/bostom-sufism-without-camouflage-beyond-stephen-schwartz.html

Basically, Rauf is a cloaked terror-supporter and fanatical radical engaged in Takiya (Muslim deception of the infidels), working towards very dangerous goals which threaten American freedoms and lives, including the institution of Sharia Law in the USA — it will start first with Islamic take-over of smaller regions within the NYC area, which will expand over time to create Islamic enclaves where local imams and mullahs (trained in Saudi Arabia) enforce Sharia Law by youth-gangs, just as happened in many places within Europe. It is already happening. He should be viewed in the same category as the 911 hijackers, as they were plotting and laying plans in the period leading up to 911.

That report also carries excellent references and weblinks, to interesting historical issues and should be of wider interest than just the Victory Mosque issue.

Meanwhile, the Hamas terrorists approve the mosque!:
http://atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com/atlas_shrugs/2010/08/hamas-backs-ground-zero-mosque-terror-groups-leader-have-to-build-it.html

And just to certify the connections between the current Muslim In Chief to this Sharia Law project, Imam Rauf is now being sponsored by the Sharia-Compliant US Government State Department (under Hillary’s control!) for an around-the-world jihad-plotting trip… excuse me, "goodwill mission".
http://www.ksdk.com/news/local/story.aspx?storyid=211309

The socialist media is not reporting this essential information, even as Speaker of the House Pelosi — one of the most corrupt and deceptive politicians in the USA — just stated those who are critical of this outrageous Islamic Victory Mosque should be "investigated"!! (Investigated by whom? The FBI? The CIA? The Muslim Brotherhood?) No calls to investigate the massive billions of funding for mosque-building in the USA by the Saudis and other oil caliphates, where the most extremist Wahhabi imams and mullahs are the leaders, as part of the global jihad agenda. "Investigate" the funding of the American protestors, the family members of the victims, the ordinary conservative and old-fashioned liberal American defenders liberty, but ignore the massive river of money coming into the USA, into Islamic organizations across the land, from the terror supporting nations. And then denigrate the issue down to one of "zoning", as if the American public is daft and dumb about the central issues involved.

There is a major protest of this Victory Mosque scheduled in NYC near the Ground Zero memorial on September 11th of this year. The most timely and accurate information on this subject, and the protests, is found predominantly on the Atlas Shrugs website of Pamela Geller, and the Jihadwatch website of Robert Spencer. These should be consulted periodically for updates, as well as timely information on the latest Islamic outrages. They are both severely attacked by the same socialist media who shills for Imam Rauf and other Islamofascists (ie, CAIR, Muslim Students Association, Islamic Society of American), committing lies-of-ommission about their fanatical radicalism, ties to terrorists, hatred of the USA, Jews and infidels, etc.:

So, will the NYC labor unions go along with this? Will the same men who cleaned up the blood and stones from the WTC towers turn around and happily draw paychecks from Iran and Saudi Arabia to build this monstrous monument to the killers of their families and friends?

Sharia Law in New York City

August 18, 2010

The following article is one of many on the fiasco and threat from the building of a new Victory Mosque in New York near to the 911 massacre site, where 19 Muslim fanatics crashed airplanes into the World Trade Center twin towers, killing nearly 3000 people only a decade ago. Called the "Cordoba Mosque" to commemorate the Islamic conquest of Spain, which was thereafter called "Cordoba" by Muslims, this unnecessary new Victory Mosque in New York City will be a place where Islamic tourists will come from all over the world, to celebrate and gawk and gloat over "what Islam can accomplish" (eg, the massacre and enslaved attitude of New Yorkers). And also to laugh at the incredible stupidity of Americans who would permit the building of such a center for the promotion of Islamic violence on "hallowed ground". It is, as former House Speaker Gingrich stated, very much like placing a Nazi Party headquarters, complete with swastikas, next to a Holocaust Memorial. Or an unrepentant Imperial Japanese cultural center at Pearl Harbor. The arrogant stupidity and extreme viciousness of the left-wing on this issue is worse than incredible, a clear expression of their having made common cause with people who would love to detonate an atomic bomb on the top floor of that mosque. Which is not beyond possibility, given how the current Muslim In Chief is working more for them than for ordinary Americans. I was going to say "than for his fellow countrymen", but that’s not assured either.

In any case, the conservatives have this issue nailed down with clarity, while the liberals are still too-frequently soaking up the deliberate disinfo from the radical left and defending the indefensible, the "indefensible" being something called Sharia Law. Which is to say, the law by which all regular, ordinary Muslims are supposed to live by on a daily basis, and which governs the Islamic world today. Sharia Law also de-facto is the law in Islamic neighborhoods where Western civil law is spat upon in favor of dictations from out of local mosques. If you don’t know what Sharia Law means, in a practical sense, then review the article linked below for a starter. From traditional Islam’s viewpoint, everyone reading this sentence who is not a Muslim is an unclean vermin, hardly worth to tolerate being alive unless they willingly adopt slave status, and who in any case certainly is sub-human. That’s not "radical Islam", but the mainstream Islamic view. And if you don’t know that already, you’ve been drinking the suicidal kool-aid from the socialist media.

The Tolerant Pose

Intolerance is not just part of al-Qaeda, it is part of Islam.

Non-Muslims are barred from entering the cities of Mecca and Medina – not merely barred from building synagogues or churches, but barred, period, because their infidel feet are deemed unfit to touch the ground. This is not an al-Qaeda principle. Nor is it an “Islamist” principle. It is Islam, pure and simple.

“Truly the pagans are unclean,” instructs the Koran’s Sura 9:28, “so let them not . . . approach the Sacred Mosque.” This injunction – and there are plenty of similar ones in Islam’s scriptures – is enforced vigorously not by jihadist terrorists but by the Saudi government. And it is enforced not because of some eccentric sense of Saudi nationalism. The only law of Saudi Arabia is sharia, the law of Islam.

As Sunni scholarly commentary in the version of the Koran officially produced by the Saudi government explains, only Muslims are sufficiently “strict in cleanliness, as well as in purity of mind and heart, so that their word can be relied upon.” Thus, only they may enter the holy cities. Authoritative Shiite teaching is even more bracing. As Iraq’s “moderate” Ayatollah Ali Sistani – probably the world’s most influential Shiite cleric – has explained, the touching of non-Muslims is discouraged, because they are considered to be in the same “unclean” category as “urine, feces, semen, dead bodies, blood, dogs, pigs, alcoholic liquors, and the sweat of an animal who persistently eats [unclean things].”

Update on Claimed Global Warming

August 16, 2010

Making sense of the latest round of conflicting claims and news reports on "global warming".

With this summer have come many isolated reports of extremely hot temperatures, and so calls are being made from some quarters that "global warming" is with us once more, having taken only a short vacation. Aside from the fact that there has been no defendable data showing a global warming over the last decade, which appears more to support a slight global cooling, it also does not appear there is any global aspect to whatever regional warming might be experienced here or there. Sunspots remain at very low levels, from zero to no more than maybe five or ten per day when it should be several hundred per day at this part of the cycle. And that has always been correlated with cooler conditions. It is an anomaly which nobody fully understands or can explain, but the correlations are reasonably firm, that low sunspots will parallel cooler conditions generally.

In any case, the global average temperatures remain to be determined for 2010, so it is premature to say just what the computations will show by year’s end — and this is aside from the fact that one of the "top" climatological centers where such data is gathered and reviewed (Hadley Climate Research Unit in the UK) was caught basically cheating and lying about their data and methodology, crowing about successful dirty-tricks in mud-pasting anyone who was critical of the CO2 theory, bragging how they had thwarted publication of papers by their critics, plotting more dirty tricks and censorship, even while claiming "the dog ate our data" when asked to share their raw data so others could review their claim of a constantly warming Earth. So whatever you hear from Hadley CRU, forget it. NOAA and NASA have not so far yet been tainted in that scandal, to my knowledge, but since the entire scope of the CO2 theory is now being used as a club to forge new socialist legislation aimed at making government even bigger, and since NOAA and NASA are government agencies now headed by Obama-bots who will parrot whatever nonsense the White House wants (ie, the recent incredible NASA directives to repeat discredited claims about "Islamic scientific achievements", as if placating the defeated egos of theocratic totalitarians and terror-apologists is a part of their mission), one should be cautious about any of the claims of the CO2 fanatics.

They don’t even use the same language as only a few years ago. "Global warming" and "CO2 warming" has been largely dropped from their public articles in favor of the more generic "Climate Change" terms. So like good Orwellians schooled in double-speak, even if global warming is no longer occurring, and no matter if the global temperature goes up or down, they can still sound alarm bells and try to stampede the herd over a cliff by the shrill call of "Climate Change! Climate Change!". And everyone should just forget, that climate has always changed by natural processes, over decades, centuries, and millennia. The question must always reference back to their earlier accusations and claims, that "industrial CO2 is creating global warming". That fairly narrow hypothesis is still the central-most question, and a fact-based answer formulated from data subjected to rational critical analysis always has been a resounding no, it isn’t.

These problems aside, below I give a number of news reports suggest whatever warming has occurred over the last year is neither global nor uniform. Here on the West Coast, at our location in rural Oregon, the summer has passed unusually cool. We get hot times, but they pass quickly. In the Southern Hemisphere, the recent winter (now underway) has been extremely cold in many places, record cold in fact, something which is reflected in the continued growth of the Antarctic ice-cap and ocean-ice field. You can check this yourself at the Cryosphere Today website, which posts this data and graphs, updated periodically.
http://arctic.atmos.uiuc.edu/cryosphere/index.noshade.html

I’ll post the two most recent graphs, for southern and northern sea-ice data, but if they don’t transfer in this email then click on the provided links:

http://arctic.atmos.uiuc.edu/cryosphere/IMAGES/current.anom.jpg

http://arctic.atmos.uiuc.edu/cryosphere/IMAGES/current.anom.south.jpg

This kind of ice data is not typically reported by the socialist media in any detail, as when you review both graphs together it is pretty clear the global sum of the two hemisphere is mostly unchanged, with the major deviations towards ice-loss in the Northern Hemisphere and ice-gain in the Southern balancing each other out, and with the divergence appearing primarily since the late 1990s. But there are other reasons why these polar-ice data stand in opposition to any claim of "global" warming.

The heat-waves and droughts in Russia this summer appear connected not with global warming, but instead with an unusually strong northward displacement of the large Saharasian desert atmosphere, which is already hyper-arid and hot. It moves north and south seasonally, in coordination with a similar north-south shift of the mid-latitude rainy belts. However, it rarely moves so far north as seen this summer, where it intrudes into normally wetter regions of northern Central Asia. This anomalous northward movement is connected with the unusually strong monsoon observed in the desert regions of Pakistan, NW India and Western China, which have been hit with exceptionally heavy rains and flooding starting around the same time as the Russian heat waves. As the heavy storms move northward out of the Indian Ocean, they literally push up against the dry and stagnant Saharasian air mass, which is displaced northward. The problem of Russian drought and fires is therefore connected with severe flooding in the regions south of the Hindu Kush.

The Saharasian Desert Belt is located fully within the Northern Hemisphere. The periodic expansion or displacement of its dry-hot atmosphere may be the reason for similarly periodic warmer conditions in the Norther Hemisphere, with attending sea-ice loss, as compared to the Southern. It has nothing to do with CO2 or industry, but is rather connected with long-term energetically-driven pressure, circulation and precipitation cycles which affect this large desert-belt. And those cycles may also be linked with Solar variations. The expansion or contraction of the large Saharasian Desert Belt atmosphere seems critically central to the problem. The Southern Hemisphere is influenced by this expansion-contraction of the Saharasian dry regions only indirectly and probably with several years of lag-time, as it takes some years for cross-equatorial mixing of the air masses. This desert belt is typically not discussed in the climatology textbooks in any unified manner (only by desert-research specialists, who increasingly have adopted my own language, if not also the term "Saharasia" which I coined back in the 1970s), even though every map of global climate will show it, staring you right in the face. This is all detailed in my book Saharasia. It has a powerful influence upon global climate, even more so than the polar ice caps, but is hardly recognized as such. Read my book for the details, especially the chapter on "The Saharasian Desert Belt". And if you only have the First Edition of the Saharasia book, you might wish to get the Second Edition, which carries a new appendix document as well as some minor corrections and additions.

New Evidence on the Persecution of Wilhelm Reich

August 14, 2010

I’ve just posted a chapter section from the new 2010 edition of the Orgone Accumulator Handbook to a special internet page, entitled "New Evidence on the Persecution of Wilhelm Reich". While the larger Handbook is available only by private ordering for awhile, as mentioned in a prior posting, I put this section of it to internet, given persisting and unwarranted claims in the USA and abroad which cast blame for the death of Reich where it least belongs, and ignores and evades the evidence where it is most abundant. Here:

New Evidence on the Persecution of Wilhelm Reich
http://www.orgonelab.org/ReichPersecution.htm

A downloadable PDF version is also available, here:
http://www.orgonelab.org/ReichPersecution.pdf

The article summarizes the growing evidence that Reich’s major detractors were, just as Reich declared, Communist Party operatives and even members of Soviet/KGB-controlled spy rings, working clandestinely in the USA. It also exposes efforts by the NKVD — the early forerunner of the KGB — to kill Reich in Scandinavia (but only succeeding in "disappearing" one of Reich’s associates). The European and Soviet Comintern (Communist International) inaccurately declared Reich to be one of the much-hated "Trotsky-ists", following the 1932 publication of his Mass Psychology of Fascism (which too many forget is equally critical of both Communist Red Fascism and Nazi Black Fascism). The article exposes how the worst and most ugly smear articles attacking Reich in the 1940s and 1950s were penned by Comintern activists for publication in magazines run by KGB operatives, how the top FDA field inspector in charge of the Reich investigation was himself a probable Communist mole, who knew and worked with the same smear-article writers in Communist organizations years earlier. The article also indicates how one of Reich’s own attorneys was, unbeknownst to him, literally up to his eyeballs in Communist Party activities, with clear Soviet sympathies.

Also note, the web-based version of this article provides a PDF download link to the article by John Wilder "CSICOP, Time Magazine and Wilhelm Reich", as taken from Pulse of the Planet #5 (Heretic’s Notebook). You can also get it here:
http://www.orgonelab.org/WilderOnTimeCSICOP.pdf
Wilder also added a short Postscript to his article, which overall exposes the hard-left and even Stalinist backgrounds of many of the contemporary Reich-haters.

In short, the old idea that Reich was destroyed by "American right-wingers" and "Christian fanatics", "McCarthy-ites" and such, is shown to be false at its core
