  • 'Choose Freedom': EU passport campaign launched across Europe [Brexit FUD]

    Imagine a post-Brexit scenario whereby Brits will be issued with EU passports to secure the right to freedom of movement across the 27 member states of the European Union. That is exactly what the European Commission will be asked to consider if a citizen’s initiative can garner one million signatures from across Europe. The “Choose Freedom” EU passport campaign was launched this week with the support of Brits living across Europe. Sue Wilson, the chair of Bremain in Spain which campaigns for the UK to remain in the European Union and to protect the rights of British migrants living and...
  • Northern Hemisphere Potentially In Great Danger, Fukushima Radiation Spikes To ‘Unimaginable’ Levels

    End of the American Dream ^ | 2-5-2017 | Michael Snyder
    Radiation inside one of the damaged reactors at the Fukushima nuclear power facility has reached an “unimaginable” level according to experts. Because so much nuclear material from Fukushima escaped into the Pacific Ocean, there are many scientists that believe that it was the worst environmental disaster in human history, but most people in the general population seem to think that since the mainstream media really doesn’t talk about it anymore that everything must be under control. Unfortunately, that is not true at all. In fact, PBS reported just last year that “it is incorrect to say that Fukushima is under...
  • Did Two federal Agencies Fraudulently Cook Global Warming Data

  • Peak Ebola? Even Goldman Is Now Warning About The Ebola Fear Factor

    News about the spread of the Ebola virus has been an increasing focus for market participants in recent days. Despite rising media coverage, Ebola seems to have had little discernible effect on consumer sentiment to date. However, as Goldman Sachs notes, the "fear factor" associated with Ebola appears more significant than in past instances of pandemic concern. While expert opinion sees the likelihood of a significant outbreak of Ebola in the US as very low, it is likely any negative macroeconomic consequences are most likely to be transmitted through fear or risk-aversion channels.

    The information leaked by Edward Snowden last year raised the public consciousness quite a bit about user privacy and security in using certain services (not to mention the hope that companies won’t be that willing to acquiesce to government requests for user information). In recent weeks, Apple CEO Tim Cook has been emphasizing a new focus on user security and encryption. Both Apple and Google have implemented stronger data encryption so it’s harder to compromise user data. The problem is, however, that it would be harder for law enforcement to access that data too. And FBI Director James Comey isn’t...

    To Hold Senate, Democrats Rely on Single Women By JACKIE CALMES JULY 2, 2014 Senator Kay Hagan, center, a North Carolina Democrat struggling to secure a second term, recently has shown gains in polls. RALEIGH, N.C. — The decline of marriage over the last generation has helped create an emerging voting bloc of unmarried women that is profoundly reshaping the American electorate to the advantage, recent elections suggest, of the Democratic Party. What is far from clear is whether Democrats will benefit in the midterm contests this fall. With their Senate majority at stake in November, Democrats and allied groups...

    Townhall.com ^ | June 25, 2014 | Mike Shedlock
    Here's the question of the day: Is there a climate bubble? In a New York Times op-ed, former treasury secretary Hank Paulson says there is. He calls it The Coming Climate Crash. For too many years, we failed to rein in the excesses building up in the nation’s financial markets. When the credit bubble burst in 2008, the damage was devastating. Millions suffered. Many still do. We’re making the same mistake today with climate change. We’re staring down a climate bubble that poses enormous risks to both our environment and economy. The warning signs are clear and growing more urgent...

    Here is a truth so fundamental that it should be self-evident: When legitimately constituted state authority stands down in the face of armed threats, the very foundation of the republic is in danger. And yet that is exactly what happened at Cliven Bundy’s Nevada ranch this spring: An alleged criminal defeated the cops, because the forces of lawlessness came at them with guns — then Bureau of Land Management officials further surrendered by removing the government markings from their vehicles to prevent violence against them. What should be judged a watershed in American history instead became a story about one...

    Of his new plan to address climate change, President Obama says: This plan will cut the dangerous carbon pollution that contributes to climate change. For years, groups like the American Lung Association have warned us that carbon pollution threatens our health and the air our children breathe. We limit the mercury, sulfur, and arsenic in our air and water, but today, there are no federal limits on the amount of carbon pollution that power plants can pump into the air. ThatÂ’s not safe. So weÂ’ll work with states and businesses to set new standards that put an end to this...

    All Signs Indicate That This Flu Season Is Going To Be Brutal Jennifer WelshDec. 4, 2012, 6:53 PMThe flu season could be especially bad this year, and is one of the earliest-starting flu seasons in a decade, said Thomas Frieden, Director of the Centers for Disease Control. "This is the earliest regular flu season we've had in nearly a decade, since the 2003-2004 flu season. That was an early and severe flu year," CDC director Thomas Frieden said in a teleconference yesterday Dec. 3. That season was very severe, especially for children, they said. This is much different than we...

    Vince Cable has warned that Europe could be plunged into war if the crisis in the eurozone results in the collapse of the currency. The Liberal Democrat Business Secretary said that the potential consequences of the failure of the Euro were "incalculable" and that there was "no automatic guarantee" that the continent would not disintegrate into conflict. … Speaking at the Cheltenham Literary Festival, Mr. Cable said: "I think we need to take stock that if the eurozone were to unravel in a way that destroyed the European project—and there is a risk that could happen—the consequences would be absolutely...

    It is time for Lisa P. Jackson to resign. Last Friday at Howard University, the administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) railed against the coal industry, saying, “In [the coal industry’s] entire history - 50, 60, 70 years or even 30 - they never found the time or the reason to clean up their act. They’re literally on life support. And the people keeping them on life support are all of us.” This is patently false, of course, as emissions from U.S. coal-fired power plants are quite heavily regulated. Those emissions controls are the reason U.S. air is clean...

    The radio ad sounds unsettling, warning of the dangers of signing political petitions. “California doesn’t license or bond signature gatherers. Many of them are from out of state and move from city to city to carry petitions. Anyone can do it, even convicted felons and forgers,” says the ad. “The legislature even called it an identity theft starter kit.” The tagline says the ad is funded by Californians Against Identity Theft, with no further information. The Watchdog set out to determine who was behind the ad. The domain for the group’s website is registered to the same address and phone...

The attack technique is several years old and the only way to defend against it is to turn the Mac off.

    That disgusting video brought out in the UK in an attempt to push their point of view on Climate Change has backfired big time. While MSM didn't pay much attention in the U.S. the video has gone viral on You Tube, as people parody that video with their own satirical content overlayed over the original. In fact the originators may have unwittingly even opened that door themselves with their original lame apology saying they would not censor anybody who reposted the video. This is just one of those videos of many now surfacing on You Tube. The people who originally...

    After the recent bad feedback for the Global Warming alarmists for a video of blowing up children for not reducing their Carbon footprints, another poor taste advertisement has shown up using an image just as disgusting. Is there nothing these people will not stoop to in order to make their point. If anyone else produced something like this, they would be absolutely condemned for doing so. These people think they can get away with whatever they want to.

    What were these people thinking? Blowing up children if they disagree with reducing Carbon Dioxide emissions. Why is it that these global warming scaremongers think they can get away with something like this to promote their cause in a way that no other person or group would even consider doing. At no stage of this process did they even consider the negative impact, or the negative feedback their violent video would produce. They went to a lot of trouble to do this, only to pull the video from their site, and publish a lame apology after the fact. Even those...

    If you thought Washington—which already took over banking and autos, and is fast-tracking attempts to take over health care and energy—would leave the Internet alone, you were dead wrong. The Internet (perhaps our greatest free market success story in recent years) is squarely in the cross-hairs of the administration and it’s not waiting for Congress to act. The charge is being led by an eager, ideologically committed White House staffer named Susan Crawford. Officially, she is the Special Assistant for Science, Technology, and Innovation Policy. Wired Magazine calls her, “the most powerful geek close to the president.” In recent weeks,...
