Terror Lighter

A lighter found on a dead insurgent (in Iraq):

Socialist Socialite

With Cameron Diaz showing off her admiration for a communist leader who killed more people than Christianity has killed in its entire time on earth she now joins Socialist Socialites like Angelina Jolie who has a tattoo of Mao on her body. Or the likes of Mike Tyson, a rapist thug who also sports a tattoo of the murderous dictator. I just hope the front runners for the Democratic Party don’t feel the same way… although Hillary has said this:

  • “Shared Prosperity Should Replace 'On Your Own' Society”

And the church Obama attends has as its pastor a Liberation Theologian, e.g., a Marxist… and a racist to boot! Oh well, Viva Le Revolution

Cameron's bag raises a few eyebrows

Actress Cameron Diaz appears to have committed a major fashion crime in Peru.

The voice of Princess Fiona in the animated Shrek films may have inadvertently offended Peruvians.

They suffered decades of violence from a Maoist guerrilla insurgency by touring there on Friday with a bag emblazoned with one of Mao Zedong's favourite political slogans.

While she explored the Inca city of Machu Picchu high in Peru's Andes, Diaz wore over her shoulder an olive green messenger bag emblazoned with a red star and the words 'Serve the People' printed in Chinese on the flap, perhaps Chinese Communist leader Mao's most famous political slogan.

While the bags are marketed as trendy fashion accessories in some world capitals, the phrase has particular resonance in Peru.

The Maoist Shining Path insurgency took Peru to the edge of chaos in the 1980s and early 1990s with a campaign of massacres, assassinations and bombings.

Nearly 70,000 people were killed during the insurgency.

A prominent Peruvian human rights activist said the star of There's Something About Mary should have been a little more aware of local sensitivities when picking her accessories.

"It alludes to a concept that did so much damage to Peru, that brought about so many victims," said Pablo Rojas about the bag's slogan.

"I don't think she should have used that bag where the followers of that ideology" did so much damage.

Congress' New Low

New Gallup data show confidence in Congress at all time low


Just 14% of Americans have a great deal or quite a lot of confidence in Congress. The Presidents approval rating sticks around 32%. Bad news for the Democrat Congress.

Slanted Media... 9-to-1

Reporters Give to Democrats 9-to-1 over Republicans

Drudge Report - props

Take note that even many at FoxNews give to Democrats and liberal causes, according to this article. But the major guys, like Joe Scarborough when giving to Republicans make their positions very clear. They say openly almost every night that they (Glenn Beck, and others) have a conservative slant to their views. Dan Rather and other big boys on the block do not explain what drives them, up-front.

I will jump through just a few of the people covered by this article. It is a big article. I will highlight just a few that show the slanted views that drive the slanted reporting. So soon after the BBC admitted to its bias too. We know the bias is in the major networks and papers. They just have to come out and say it, like the BBC

MSNBC article

By Bill Dedman

Investigative reporter


BOSTON - A CNN reporter gave $500 to John Kerry's campaign the same month he was embedded with the U.S. Army in Iraq. An assistant managing editor at Forbes magazine not only sent $2,000 to Republicans, but also volunteers as a director of an ExxonMobil-funded group that questions global warming. A junior editor at Dow Jones Newswires gave $1,036 to the liberal group and keeps a blog listing "people I don't like," starting with George Bush, Pat Robertson, the Christian Coalition, the NRA and corporate America ("these are the people who are really in charge").

Whether you sample your news feed from ABC or CBS (or, yes, even NBC and MSNBC), whether you prefer Fox News Channel or National Public Radio, The Wall Street Journal or The New Yorker, some of the journalists feeding you are also feeding cash to politicians, parties or political action committees….

The pattern of donations, with nearly nine out of 10 giving to Democratic candidates and causes, appears to confirm a leftward tilt in newsrooms….


New Yorker writer Mark Singer, who wrote the magazine's profile of Howard Dean during the 2004 campaign, then gave $250 to America Coming Together and its get-out-the-vote campaign to defeat President Bush. "But there's a rule against murder. If someone had murdered Hitler — a journalist interviewing him had murdered him — the world would be a better place. I only feel good, as a citizen, about getting rid of George Bush, who has been the most destructive president in my lifetime. I certainly don't regret it."….


George Packer is The New Yorker's man in Iraq.

The war correspondent for the magazine since 2003 and author of the acclaimed 2005 book "The Assassins' Gate: America in Iraq," Packer gave $750 to the Democratic National Committee in August 2004 and $250 to Iraq war veteran Paul Hackett, an anti-war Democrat who campaigned unsuccessfully for a seat in Congress from Ohio in 2006.

In addition to his reported pieces, Packer also writes commentary for the magazine, such as his June 11 piece ruing Bush's "shallow, unreflective character."

"My readers know my views on politics and politicians because I make no secret of them in my comments for The New Yorker and elsewhere," Packer said. "If giving money to a politician prejudiced my ability to think and write honestly, I wouldn't do it. Fortunately, it doesn't."

His colleague Judith Thurman wrote the New Yorker's sympathetic profile of Teresa Heinz Kerry, published on Sept. 27, 2004. Ten days later, the Democratic National Committee recorded Thurman's donation of $1,000. She did not return phone calls.

Their editor, Remnick, said that the magazine's writers don't do straight reporting. "Their opinions are out there," Remnick said. "There's nothing hidden." So why not disclose campaign donations to readers? "Should every newspaper reporter divulge who they vote for?"

Besides, there's the magazine's famously rigorous editing. The last bulwark against bias’s slipping into The New Yorker is the copy department, whose chief editor, Ann Goldstein, gave $500 in October to, which campaigns for Democrats and against President Bush. "That's just me as a private citizen," she said. As for whether donations are allowed, Goldstein said she hadn't considered it. "I've never thought of myself as working for a news organization."….


As the Jerusalem correspondent for CNN, he was embedded with U.S. troops in Iraq in June 2004, when he gave $500 to John Kerry.

He didn't supply his occupation or employer to the Kerry campaign, so his donation is listed in federal records with only his name and London address. Now he covers the Pentagon for NPR. Both CNN and NPR forbid political activity.

"I covered international news and European Union stories. I did not cover U.S. news or politics," Raz said in an e-mail to When asked how one could define U.S. news so it excludes the U.S. war in Iraq, Raz didn't reply.


Patterson has covered the Iraq war and anti-war movements for the National Catholic Reporter, an independent weekly newspaper in Kansas City.

She gave to anti-war Democrats: $2,100 to Sen. Claire McCaskill, $1,000 to Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, $250 to Howard Dean and $800 to the Democratic Party.

And she signed a petition and paid to have it published as "KC Metro Citizens Oppose War On Iraq!"

Patterson said the danger isn't the journalist who reveals a bias by making a campaign contribution, but journalists who quietly hold to their biases [take note of the next few sentences].

I feel my responsibility as a journalist is to be fair to the people and issues involved and to be as accurate as possible," she said. "When I see my country embark on a course of action that I think disastrous to its future and fatal to its citizens, I think it my duty to do my utmost to stop it."

She didn't disclose her political activities to her readers, or her editor, Tom Roberts. He said he wasn't sure about campaign contributions, but "a reporter signing a petition crosses the line to activism."


At this point, we need a journalism ethicist. How about Orville Schell? He favorably reviewed Eric Alterman's book "What Liberal Media?: The Truth About Bias and the News." And this Feb. 9, while he was still dean of the journalism school at the University of California, Berkeley, Schell gave $1,000 to Sen. Hillary Clinton.


Or we could ask Randy Cohen, who writes the syndicated column "The Ethicist" for The New York Times. The former comedy writer gave $585 to in 2004 when it was organizing get-out-the-vote efforts to defeat Bush. Cohen said he understands the Times policy and won't make donations again, but he had thought of as no more out of bounds than the Boy Scouts.

Ubisoft's PC Take on History

Ubisoft and the Crusades

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

I am sure that some here are saying “why is Papa Giorgio blogging on a game developer?” Well, I will tell you. I am a huge gamer from “table-top pong” days (in the basement bar of my grandmother’s home in Michigan… along with a juke box and a pool table) and have had most systems made for the enjoyment of game-players. So I do not want anyone who reads this blog to first assume that I am just some anti-game console hater with some fiery preaching to back some boycott against XBOX or Ubisoft.

In fact, I am encouraging all here to buy the game. Ubisoft is at the cutting edge of what gaming should be, and supporting them with your $ is supporting one of the best makers of games the world has to offer. I mean that. And not just because my favorite game is Splinter Cell. I just am at odds with Assassin's Creed's producer and her apparent take on history. Remember, I may be wrong in my early "pigeon holing" of the games view of history.

You can download or simply watch the videos of the game at I will post a video here for people to watch, and it will tie into my blog.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Okay, onward we go. The time period in which this game takes place in the later-half of the Third Crusade. The Catholic Church was in some of its worse theological times, and had some pretty nefarious fellows running the Church-end of the Crusades. Not one of the brightest points in Christian history. That being said, lets delve into this topic a bit and get some historical context that the game makers may have left out in order to include their implicit or explicit conspiracy theories and Political Correctness.

Here is the video to watch:

First, one must know that the “assassins” mentioned here were a notorious sect of Ismaili Shi’ite Muslims known as the Assassins. While the Ismaili'itesdidn't invent political assassination, they certainly introduced it on a larger scale. The Assassins also accomplished a closer tie between Islamic religious dogma and murder in the name of Islam (and thus Allah) closer. They put into practice what Muhammad had kick started, bringing to fruition all the murderous creeds found in the Quran and the Hadith.

Jade Raymond, the producer of the game, hints that there are connections that reach all the way to our day. I am only assuming --- and this is a big assumption… but knowing the inner-workings of mine and the younger generation, I state with confidant assumption the next point:

I am sure that some reference to the “New World Order” along with its connection to the Knights Templar’s and modern financial institutions and big corporations that supposedly wish for oil dominance… thus referencing Bush and the Iraq war. If not explicitly, definitely in an implicit manner.

I am sure many who grace this meager blog have heard of some of these “secret societies,” if but for the fact of seeing the movie The Da Vinci Code. Many of the organizations in this conspiratorial view of history are:

Ancient “Secret Societies”



Count Saint-Germain and other Magicians


Knights Templars


The Priory of Sion


More Modern “Secret Societies”

The Trilateral Commission

Council on Foreign Relations (CFR)





Secrets of Money and the Federal Reserve System

Empire Building

The Royal Institute of International Affairs- Round table

Rhodes and Ruskin

Skull and Bones

I am sure some in Ubisoft are conspiratorialists and anti-Bushites that take much of Dan brown’s work in his books and movie (The Da Vinci Code) as more than mere fiction. Not to mention the fact that these game producers are based in Canada (ha, ha). Again, I am making wild assumptions here that will either be validated or not when the game is released.

[The game takes place in 1191 A.D. which is the later half of the Third Crusade (1188-1192).] This crusade was proclaimed by Pope Gregory VIII in the wake of Saladin’s capture of Jerusalem and destruction of the Crusader forces of Hattin in 1187. This venture failed to retake Jerusalem, but it did strengthen Outremer, the crusader state that stretched along the coast of the Levant. (The Politically incorrect guide to Islam (and the Crusades), by Robert Spencer, pp. 147-148)

Sure the game takes place in historical settings, but does the average player understand why the Crusades took place to begin with? The almost Political Correct myth is that the crusades were an unprovoked attack by Europe against the Islamic world (p. 122).

The conquest of Jerusalem in 638 stood as the beginning of centuries of Muslim aggression, and Christians in the Holy Land faced an escalating spiral of persecution. A few examples: Early in the eighth century, sixty Christian pilgrims from Amorium were crucified; around the same time, the Muslim governor of Caesarea seized a group of pilgrims from Iconium and had them all executed as spies – except for a small number who converted to Islam; and Muslims demanded money from pilgrims, threatening to ransack the Church of the Resurrection if they didn’t pay. Later in the eighth century, a Muslim ruler banned displays of the cross in Jerusalem. He also increased the anti-religious tax (jizya) that Christians had to pay and forbade Christians to engage in religious instruction to others, even their own children.

Brutal subordinations and violence became the rules of the day for Christians in the Holy Land. In 772, the caliph al-Mansur ordered the hands of Christians and Jews in Jerusalem to be stamped with a distinctive symbol. Conversions to Christianity were dealt with particularly harshly. In 789, Muslims beheaded a monk who had converted from Islam and plundered the Bethlehem monastery of Saint Theodosius, killing many more monks. Other monasteries in the region suffered the same fate. Early in the ninth century, the persecutions grew so severe that large numbers of Christians fled to Constantinople and other Christians cities. More persecutions in 923 saw additional churches destroyed, and in 937, Muslims went on a Palm Sunday rampage in Jerusalem, plundering and destroying the Church of Calvary and the Church of the Resurrection. (pp. 122-123)

One person (my pastor) said to paint a picture of the crusaders in a single year in history is like showing photo’s and video of Hitler hugging children and giving flowers to them and then showing photo’s and video of the Allies attacking the German army. It completely forgets what Hitler and Germany had done prior.

You’ll notice that Jade Raymond says something that makes her reference at the end about this having an impact in today’s time make me think that she has wrongly placed assumptions of history and currant affairs. She says:

“Nine key guys who are architecting the Crusades. Actually making the war and the population suffer and making [it] bad for everyone.”

For four hundred years the Muslims were making it bad for everyone Jade, and during the Crusades some missteps may have been taken by Europe in its response. But the main act of pushing Islam back was a moral position justified by the barbarous acts of Islam. Which are still taking place till this day! That is the only connection to this point in history. Jesus taught one to love their neighbor as themselves, not put a tax on them and tell them to not give religious instruction to their children.

Jesus healed the ear of the soldier struck by Peter, Muhammad personally beheaded people as well as ordering the death of over 900 people in one act. There are drawings showing children around Christ, even being allowed into the inner circle of the apostles to show them that one must be like a child in instances. Do we find this type of loving care and instruction in depictions and writings about Muhammad… No.

So for those who plan on getting this game, you must keep in mind that you are playing a person who altered their state of consciousness by using drugs and getting into a frenzy of murderous rage in order to murder their victims in the cruelest manner.

The player should be aware that they in a sense playing an agent for Osama Bin Laden, like Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, who if you remember was the Al Qaeda agent in Iraq for the first half of the war there. The guy that killed so many of our brave men and women. Playing a game that has you in command of Abu al-Zarqawi as someone killing U.S. Military personnel would be analogous to playing the character in Ubisoft’s game.

Just keep that in mind. It is a great chance to counter some of the Politically Correct history floating around in the netherworld of 9/11 truthers and university educated victa-crates that tend to be more numerous in Montreal. As you play, contemplate history and the possibility that if the West had stood idol to the centuries long onslaught of Islamic “assassins” what the outcome may have been. In other words, does the total net effect of the Church and the West pushing back the Islamic aggressor make us better, safer, and freer today than if the Church and the West hadn’t done anything?

In the PC crowd, the West and Judeo-Christian mores are the reason for most of history's ills.

Glo-Bull Warming

Sunspot Cause Global Warming

Greenies… Please Read!

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

I wanted to post the entire article that the DRUDGE REPORT linked to because it is an important read… especially for the two teachers that may grace my site. It is long and semi-technical… but well worth the read.

Keep in mind that these scientists who have found the link between sunspots and our climate are also getting “predictful” in their assessment, but at least they are more grounded than the eco-fascists of the Left. These predictions should be taken with a grain of salt. But this is the difference between their predictions and those of the Left: there is nothing we can do to curb these fluctuations.

So, no legislation, taxes, corporate restrictions, and the like should come from their findings. It is a natural condition of both our solar system and the universe. I do want to point out though that we have made a complete circle from the first Earth Day in 1970, which preached a catastrophic “global cooling” to a more recent phenomenon of “global warming,” to again a less catastrophic global cooling. (I put two of the “globals” in parenthesis because they are the ones being used by extremist groups to have legislation enacted. The third is merely the best statement cosmologists can give with no political input whatsoever.)

I will make a prediction now though: the Left and the U.N. will not change the course they are on because it is handing too much money and power over to the people who are… well… the Bumper Sticker below explains:

Read the Sunspots

The mud at the bottom of B.C. fjords reveals that solar output drives climate change - and that we should prepare now for dangerous global cooling

R. Timothy Patterson

Financial Post

Wednesday, June 20, 2007

(R. Timothy Patterson is professor and director of the Ottawa-Carleton Geoscience Centre, Department of Earth Sciences, Carleton University.)

Politicians and environmentalists these days convey the impression that climate-change research is an exceptionally dull field with little left to discover. We are assured by everyone from David Suzuki to Al Gore to Prime Minister Stephen Harper that "the science is settled." At the recent G8 summit, German Chancellor Angela Merkel even attempted to convince world leaders to play God by restricting carbon-dioxide emissions to a level that would magically limit the rise in world temperatures to 2C.

The fact that science is many years away from properly understanding global climate doesn't seem to bother our leaders at all. Inviting testimony only from those who don't question political orthodoxy on the issue, parliamentarians are charging ahead with the impossible and expensive goal of "stopping global climate change." Liberal MP Ralph Goodale's June 11 House of Commons assertion that Parliament should have "a real good discussion about the potential for carbon capture and sequestration in dealing with carbon dioxide, which has tremendous potential for improving the climate, not only here in Canada but around the world," would be humorous were he, and even the current government, not deadly serious about devoting vast resources to this hopeless crusade.

Climate stability has never been a feature of planet Earth. The only constant about climate is change; it changes continually and, at times, quite rapidly. Many times in the past, temperatures were far higher than today, and occasionally, temperatures were colder. As recently as 6,000 years ago, it was about 3C warmer than now. Ten thousand years ago, while the world was coming out of the thou-sand-year-long "Younger Dryas" cold episode, temperatures rose as much as 6C in a decade -- 100 times faster than the past century's 0.6C warming that has so upset environmentalists.

Climate-change research is now literally exploding with new findings. Since the 1997 Kyoto Protocol, the field has had more research than in all previous years combined and the discoveries are completely shattering the myths. For example, I and the first-class scientists I work with are consistently finding excellent correlations between the regular fluctuations in the brightness of the sun and earthly climate. This is not surprising. The sun and the stars are the ultimate source of all energy on the planet.

My interest in the current climate-change debate was triggered in 1998, when I was funded by a Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council strategic project grant to determine if there were regular cycles in West Coast fish productivity. As a result of wide swings in the populations of anchovies, herring and other commercially important West Coast fish stock, fisheries managers were having a very difficult time establishing appropriate fishing quotas. One season there would be abundant stock and broad harvesting would be acceptable; the very next year the fisheries would collapse. No one really knew why or how to predict the future health of this crucially important resource.

Although climate was suspected to play a significant role in marine productivity, only since the beginning of the 20th century have accurate fishing and temperature records been kept in this region of the northeast Pacific. We needed indicators of fish productivity over thousands of years to see whether there were recurring cycles in populations and what phenomena may be driving the changes.

My research team began to collect and analyze core samples from the bottom of deep Western Canadian fjords. The regions in which we chose to conduct our research, Effingham Inlet on the West Coast of Vancouver Island, and in 2001, sounds in the Belize-Seymour Inlet complex on the mainland coast of British Columbia, were perfect for this sort of work. The topography of these fjords is such that they contain deep basins that are subject to little water transfer from the open ocean and so water near the bottom is relatively stagnant and very low in oxygen content. As a consequence, the floors of these basins are mostly lifeless and sediment layers build up year after year, undisturbed over millennia.

Using various coring technologies, we have been able to collect more than 5,000 years' worth of mud in these basins, with the oldest layers coming from a depth of about 11 metres below the fjord floor. Clearly visible in our mud cores are annual changes that record the different seasons: corresponding to the cool, rainy winter seasons, we see dark layers composed mostly of dirt washed into the fjord from the land; in the warm summer months we see abundant fossilized fish scales and diatoms (the most common form of phytoplankton, or single-celled ocean plants) that have fallen to the fjord floor from nutrient-rich surface waters. In years when warm summers dominated climate in the region, we clearly see far thicker layers of diatoms and fish scales than we do in cooler years. Ours is one of the highest-quality climate records available anywhere today and in it we see obvious confirmation that natural climate change can be dramatic. For example, in the middle of a 62-year slice of the record at about 4,400 years ago, there was a shift in climate in only a couple of seasons from warm, dry and sunny conditions to one that was mostly cold and rainy for several decades.

Using computers to conduct what is referred to as a "time series analysis" on the colouration and thickness of the annual layers, we have discovered repeated cycles in marine productivity in this, a region larger than Europe. Specifically, we find a very strong and consistent 11-year cycle throughout the whole record in the sediments and diatom remains. This correlates closely to the well-known 11-year "Schwabe" sunspot cycle, during which the output of the sun varies by about 0.1%. Sunspots, violent storms on the surface of the sun, have the effect of increasing solar output, so, by counting the spots visible on the surface of our star, we have an indirect measure of its varying brightness. Such records have been kept for many centuries and match very well with the changes in marine productivity we are observing.

In the sediment, diatom and fish-scale records, we also see longer period cycles, all correlating closely with other well-known regular solar variations. In particular, we see marine productivity cycles that match well with the sun's 75-90-year "Gleissberg Cycle," the 200-500-year "Suess Cycle" and the 1,100-1,500-year "Bond Cycle." The strength of these cycles is seen to vary over time, fading in and out over the millennia. The variation in the sun's brightness over these longer cycles may be many times greater in magnitude than that measured over the short Schwabe cycle and so are seen to impact marine productivity even more significantly.

Our finding of a direct correlation between variations in the brightness of the sun and earthly climate indicators (called "proxies") is not unique. Hundreds of other studies, using proxies from tree rings in Russia's Kola Peninsula to water levels of the Nile, show exactly the same thing: The sun appears to drive climate change.

However, there was a problem. Despite this clear and repeated correlation, the measured variations in incoming solar energy were, on their own, not sufficient to cause the climate changes we have observed in our proxies. In addition, even though the sun is brighter now than at any time in the past 8,000 years, the increase in direct solar input is not calculated to be sufficient to cause the past century's modest warming on its own. There had to be an amplifier of some sort for the sun to be a primary driver of climate change.

Indeed, that is precisely what has been discovered. In a series of groundbreaking scientific papers starting in 2002, Veizer, Shaviv, Carslaw, and most recently Svensmark et al., have collectively demonstrated that as the output of the sun varies, and with it, our star's protective solar wind, varying amounts of galactic cosmic rays from deep space are able to enter our solar system and penetrate the Earth's atmosphere. These cosmic rays enhance cloud formation which, overall, has a cooling effect on the planet. When the sun's energy output is greater, not only does the Earth warm slightly due to direct solar heating, but the stronger solar wind generated during these "high sun" periods blocks many of the cosmic rays from entering our atmosphere. Cloud cover decreases and the Earth warms still more.

The opposite occurs when the sun is less bright. More cosmic rays are able to get through to Earth's atmosphere, more clouds form, and the planet cools more than would otherwise be the case due to direct solar effects alone. This is precisely what happened from the middle of the 17th century into the early 18th century, when the solar energy input to our atmosphere, as indicated by the number of sunspots, was at a minimum and the planet was stuck in the Little Ice Age. These new findings suggest that changes in the output of the sun caused the most recent climate change. By comparison, CO2 variations show little correlation with our planet's climate on long, medium and even short time scales.

In some fields the science is indeed "settled." For example, plate tectonics, once highly controversial, is now so well-established that we rarely see papers on the subject at all. But the science of global climate change is still in its infancy, with many thousands of papers published every year. In a 2003 poll conducted by German environmental researchers Dennis Bray and Hans von Storch, two-thirds of more than 530 climate scientists from 27 countries surveyed did not believe that "the current state of scientific knowledge is developed well enough to allow for a reasonable assessment of the effects of greenhouse gases." About half of those polled stated that the science of climate change was not sufficiently settled to pass the issue over to policymakers at all.

Solar scientists predict that, by 2020, the sun will be starting into its weakest Schwabe solar cycle of the past two centuries, likely leading to unusually cool conditions on Earth. Beginning to plan for adaptation to such a cool period, one which may continue well beyond one 11-year cycle, as did the Little Ice Age, should be a priority for governments. It is global cooling, not warming, that is the major climate threat to the world, especially Canada. As a country at the northern limit to agriculture in the world, it would take very little cooling to destroy much of our food crops, while a warming would only require that we adopt farming techniques practiced to the south of us.

Meantime, we need to continue research into this, the most complex field of science ever tackled, and immediately halt wasted expenditures on the King Canute-like task of "stopping climate change."

I have a feeling that John Edwards just says there isn’t a war on terror for the same reason the kid the bully picks on doesn’t say anything negative about his aggressor on the schoolyard lest it get back to “said” aggressor.

Edwards in public will not say there is a war on terror because he feels he is on the school yard when talking to the media. This is just my amateur armchair poli-sci perspective with a dash of psychiatry thrown in. But I hope you will get a laugh and make the connections with the videos below.

Ron Paul and 9/11 Truthers

Michael Moore and Ron Paul…

Oh, and Crazy Conspiracy Theories As Well

This sealed Ron Paul’s fate in my mind… as if my mind needed any more sealing on the matter. For a major 9/11 Truth organization to support Ron Paul fits nicely with Ron Paul’s old connections to the John Birch Society and others who have a seriously flawed worldview on this matter. I here am speaking from experience. I will name just a few titles of books that use to hold my sway so the reader can get a feel for what I am saying:

  • En Route to Global Occupation: A High Ranking Government Liaison Exposes the Secret Agenda for World Unification, by Gary Kah;
  • The Shadows of Power: The Council on Foreign Relations and the American Decline, by James Perloff;
  • The New World Order, by A. Ralph Epperson;
  • Black Helicopters Over America: Strikeforce for the New World Order, by Jim Keith.

All these guys and gals are conspiracy wack jobs. This includes James Buchanan, who ran on the Independent ticket a while back. His Vice Pres. choice was Ezola Foster. I own many of her videos and speeches (on tape - I just gave away my age there) as well as visiting her old “bookstore” many years ago. She was another John Bircher. In fact, in the North Hollywood (I am a SoCal kid) is a book store called American Opinion Bookstore which was pretty close to Ezola’s business. In it you will find just about every wacky conspiracy publication you can think of, with a few American flags thrown in for flavor. All these folks, and now I guess the 9/11 Truthers, love Ron Paul.

At any rate, this is the thing that caught my eye in the video interview with Michael Moore, the adoration for a “John Bircher” by conspiracy nuts.

If you want a pretty good refutation of the Pentagon conspiracy, which I originally did for my teenage boys friend, go to my blog entitle Debunking 9/11 Conspiracies. For now though, enjoy how much people can ingratiate themselves with stupidity thinking it to be wisdom:

Democrats want to bring the Guillotine back in order to harvest organs from death row inmates. It can be found at his site here: Georgia House Of Representatives HB1274 - Death Penalty; Guillotine Provisions, I linked this to my blog entitled Who Did the Founders Quote the Most?

Rep. Teper has sponsored a few legislative bills in his day. But this one caught my eye but didn’t necessarily surprise me. Many liberal policies smack of contempt for human nature, all one needs to do is read a previous blog I did on Harvesting Human Body Parts and one will see the illusions to Robert Jay Lifton’s book, The Nazi Doctors.

YouTube Banning Anything Anti-Muslim... Again

YouTube's War on Anti-Islamic Freedom of Speech

Did YouTube pulled this video… Hmmmm? I wonder why?? Maybe because the Political Correctness over there is in high gear. Tolerance has no meaning when applied to Judeo-Christian aspects of the faith. But if someone is thought to be intolerant to Islam, videos are erased, books are pulled, all in the name of tolerance! The video was posted originally at Hot Air.

There is another alternative to this story, but it doesn’t bode well for Islam. Jeff Dunham and his ventriloquist act with “Achmed the dead terrorist” could have been pulled by Jeff Dunham himself asking it to be. Why? Maybe he was threatened by the “Religion of Peace”? Who knows? Both scenarios are possible.
