  • So What if the Clinton Foundation Fleeced Norway? Bring on the Chardonnay!

    Hillary Clinton visited Norway last week, an event that brought to my mind, anyway, the fact that, adjusting for population, no country has been more generous to her family’s stupendously sordid con operation than has the land of the fjords. The numbers are scandalous. Between 2007 and 2016, the Norwegian government transferred no less than 640 million kroner in taxpayer money to the Clinton Foundation. Given the average exchange rate during that period, that sum would’ve been roughly equivalent to $100 million. This means that each and every Norwegian citizen, without being asked, put about twenty dollars into the pockets...
  • Church of Norway Apologizes for Previous Pro-Life Stance, Says Abortion Promotes ‘Women’s Safety’

    March 4, 2019 (Live Action News) — In Norway, the largest Christian denomination is the Church of Norway, with an estimated 70% of Norwegians registered as members. Originally, the church was the official religion of Norway, with mandatory membership, but today, the church and the state have become separated. The church has likewise historically been pro-life, while Norway allows for legal abortion. However, the bishops of the Church of Norway recently released a statement actually apologizing for the church's pro-life stance and stunningly (and incorrectly) claiming that abortion "promotes women's health, safety and security." "When the law of self-determined abortion...

    The rugged west coast of Norway, home to thousands, is a challenge to travel along by car. It takes time. A long time. The harsh weather conditions make it an unpredictable route, with roads often closing and ferries often cancelling their departure due to snow, heavy winds or high waves. A continuous E39 highway that is accessible 24/7, with fixed links between islands and the mainland will make the western coast more accessible for people who inhabit the coast, but also for tourists and for the transportation of goods. Currently, 1,000km of road need to be improved The Norwegian parliament...

    Only a few years ago, before the hydro-fracking and shale revolution overturned the economics of U.S. oil production, the United States was the world's largest oil importer by far and prohibited exports of oil by law. Now shipments of U.S. crude into Europe have just hit a new record. January imports were 630,000 barrels per day, still - behind Russia and Iraq but above other OPEC producers including Nigeria and Libya. Higher U.S. crude exports have been helped by lower supplies of Iranian and Venezuelan crude, which Washington has put under sanctions, scaring buyers across the world. In the whole...

    Heavy snowfall continued Thursday in parts of Austria and southern Germany, with several places cut off and the bad weather expected to persist. Snow was causing problems in other parts of Europe, even in Norway’s Arctic Svalbard archipelago. Austrian police said that a 16-year-old boy from Australia was killed in an avalanche in St. Anton am Arlberg as he was skiing with his family on Wednesday. In neighboring Slovakia, the mountain rescue service said a 37-year-old Slovak man was killed by an avalanche in the Mala Fatra mountains. That brought to at least 16 the number of weather-related deaths reported...
  • Norwegians furious at their PM for ‘ignoring’ jihad murder of fellow citizen in Morocco

    No matter what Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg posts on Facebook these days, the comments are negative. People argue that the signing of the UN Migration Pact in Marrakesh was a stab in the back of the nation. They also rage against Erna’s media handling of the murder of Maren Ueland, which they believe was a pure jihad-slaughter. “A PM who ignores her own people, who is totally absent when a young Norwegian girl is murdered in the most bestial way. And who chose not to lift a finger to secure her people at a time when we actually needed...

    Poland has granted asylum to a mother and her 2-year-old daughter who fled Norway after child services tried to remove the child from the mother’s care based on what she says are false allegations of drug abuse. European family rights activists are rejoicing after Silje Garmo and her daughter, Eira, were granted asylum by Poland’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Wednesday. The two had fled Norway because the mother was trying to retain custody of Eira as Norway’s controversial child services agency, Barnevernet, tried to take the child away from her mother in 2014, based of unfounded claims made by...

    Many U.S. producers say they can turn a profit at $50 a barrel and even as low as $30 in the Permian’s most productive regions. Yet most OPEC members need prices ranging between $70 and $90 per barrel to balance their budgets. The cartel scaled back output in 2016, but shale producers roared back as prices recovered. *** Barack Obama, hilariously, is now claiming credit for the shale boom. “You know that whole suddenly America’s like the biggest oil producer . . . that was me, people,” he said last month at Rice University. But drilling leases on federal land...
  • Saudi Arabia Calls The End Of Russia’s Oil Prowess

    Saudi Arabia has not only called the end of Russia’s prominence as a global oil behemoth, but anticipates that Russia’s oil exports “will have declined heavily if not disappeared” within the next 19 years, Mohammed bin Salman said in a recent interview with Bloomberg. When asked whether Russia and Saudi Arabia had made a backroom deal to increase oil production, MbS was more tight-lipped, saying only that Saudi Arabia was “ready to supply any demand and any disappearing from Iran.” With Russia out of the game, Saudi Arabia would have plenty of oil demand to service, according to MbS. MbS...

    On November 14, Tesla officially unveiled its Model 3 sedan in Europe and began inviting customers on the Old Continent to place their orders for the most affordable vehicle in the company's lineup of all electric cars... left-hand-drive versions of the Model 3 are expected to be available in Europe in the first half of 2019 with right-hand-drive versions coming available in the second half of next year. That's good news, but what is really exciting for many living there is that those European-spec Model 3s will come equipped with a CCS charging port, giving Model 3 drivers many more...

    Radar images and the audio log show that the frigate KNM "Helge Ingstad" kept high speed and steered towards the tanker "Sola TS", despite repeated warnings that they were going to collide. At 04.02 Thursday morning it goes wrong outside Stureterminalen in Hjeltefjorden. At around 17 knots the frigate KNM "Helge Ingstad" straight into the front of the 250 meter long tanker "Sola TS". Before the collision was a fact, the heavily loaded tanker asked the warship to swing away repeatedly. It shows the radar signals and the audio log VG has gained access to. The consequence is that the...

    The U.S. Navy expects one of its officers to be questioned as part of an investigation into the collision of a Norwegian warship and a commercial oil tanker this month in one of the Scandinavian nation’s fjords. The American officer, who has not been identified, was onboard the Norwegian navy frigate as part of a military personnel exchange, according to U.S. and Norwegian officials. The sailor’s role on the ship remains unclear. The Nov. 8 incident ultimately sank the 439-foot Norwegian warship and left several people injured. Norwegian naval officers beached the vessel — the KNM Helge Ingstad — in...

    Nordic prisons visited by a US Correctional Officer James Conway shakes his head in disbelief, as he walks through the institution they call ''prison.'' Finnish Broadcasting, YLE, has made a documentary series called "Norden", where focus is on various aspects of society in Scandinavia. In this episode, former correctional officer, James Conway, from the notorious US prison Attica, has been brought in to have a look at the nordic prison system. During a one week filming trip with The Finnish Broadcasting Company, he visited different kinds of correctional institutions in Finland and Sweden, but the Norwegian ultra liberal regime was...

    Returning from the NATO Trident Juncture strategic exercise, a Norwegian frigate collided with a tanker. Many are speculating that gender politics sunk the vessel. The collision with the KNM Helge Ingstad left a big enough hole in the starboard side of the frigate for the warship to take on water. The crew has been forced to abandon the vessel, The Barents Observer reported. On Tuesday morning, most of the navy ship was already under water. The warship, one of Norway’s five top modern frigates.. a mystery why the well-equipped warship couldn’t avoid colliding with the 250 meters long oil tanker...

    It may be the last place you'd expect to find corals -- up to 6,000 m (20,000 ft) below the ocean's surface, where the water is icy cold and the light dim or absent. Yet believe it or not, lush coral gardens thrive here. In fact, scientists have discovered nearly as many species of deep-sea corals (also known as cold-water corals) as shallow-water species... deep-sea corals don't need sunlight. They obtain the energy and nutrients they need to survive by trapping tiny organisms in passing currents... living even in waters as cold as -1ºC (30.2ºF)... occur in the waters of...
