Mia Farrow’s dirty profits—a hidden payoff in corrupt Ecuador trial.
This Farrow role was billed as a trip to “show her support for indigenous people” in a massive lawsuit that accused the US oil company Chevron of polluting the jungle and poisoning locals.
The highlight of the dramatic visit featured Farrow reaching into the ground and, with world media present, holding up a dirty, oil-drenched hand.
That is, until news broke that the Ecuadorian government had secretly paid her $188,000 to go there and hype the case against Chevron. Her “oily hand seen around the world” may have been the most lucrative gig of her acting career.
Der er meget mere her.
Alligevel viser klimamodelberegninger, at konsekvenserne af fortsat menneskeskabt global opvarmning vil forøge antallet af ekstreme vejrsituationer.
Denne tendens synes at have gjort sig gældende siden starten af 1990’erne. Temperaturerne på den nordlige halvkugle har sandsynligvis ikke været højere i de seneste 1.300 år, og siden 1850 har de 11 af de 12 varmeste år ligget fra 1995 og fremefter.
3,264 Days Without a Major Hurricane Strike
Who would have predicted it? As of today (October 1) it’s been nearly 9 years since a major hurricane (Cat 3 or greater) has struck the U.S., the last being Wilma in October, 2005.
De politiske partier og NGO’ere taler ofte om hvor meget vi skal give i ulandshjælp.
Michael A. Clemens og Todd J. Moss fra organisationen Center for Global Development skriver følgende i Working Paper 68 fra 2005 om ulandshjælp:
Ghost of 0.7%: Origins and Relevance of the International Aid Target – Working Paper 68
The international goal for rich countries to devote 0.7% of their national income to development assistance has become a cause célèbre for aid activists and has been accepted in many official quarters as the legitimate target for aid budgets. The origins of the target, however, raise serious questions about its relevance. First, the 0.7% target was calculated using a series of assumptions that are no longer true, and justified by a model that is no longer considered credible. When we use essentially the same method used to arrive at 0.7% in the early 1960s and apply today’s conditions, it yields an aid goal of just 0.01% of rich-country GDP for the poorest countries and negative aid flows to the developing world as a whole. We do not claim in any way that this is the ‘right’ amount of aid, but only that this exercise lays bare the folly of the initial method and the subsequent unreflective commitment to the 0.7% aid goal. Second, we document the fact that, despite frequent misinterpretation of UN documents, no government ever agreed in a UN forum to actually reach 0.7%—though many pledged to move toward it. Third, we argue that aid as a fraction of rich country income does not constitute a meaningful metric for the adequacy of aid flows. It would be far better to estimate aid needs by starting on the recipient side with a meaningful model of how aid affects development. Although aid certainly has positive impacts in many circumstances, our quantitative understanding of this relationship is too poor to accurately conduct such a tally. The 0.7% target began life as a lobbying tool, and stretching it to become a functional target for real aid budgets across all donors is to exalt it beyond reason. That no longer makes any sense, if it ever did.
Og vore politikere bruger fortsat 0,7-1,0% af BNP (skatteborgernes penge) på noget, som ifølge disse forskere er forældet og unødvendigt. Hvem er ulandshjælpen egentlig til gavn for? Og hvorfor skal vi ifølge denne artikel bruge 70 gange mere end der er brug for?
Vestens politikere messer dagligt i De Gamle Venstreorienterede Medier budskabet igennem: ISIS har intet med islam og koranen at gøre.
Det sidste eksempel er:
UK Home Secretary Theresa May: Islamic State’s actions “have absolutely no basis in anything written in the Quran”
Her kan vi så citere Goebbels:
“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”
“The most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly – it must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over”
Not only was last year’s all-time high sea ice record beaten this year, but smashed it by such a wide a margin that is meteorologically unworldly.
If anyone is searching for a sign of a “tipping point”, this could be one. Unfortunately the tip seems to be in the opposite direction!
At least week’s Saturday Summary, Joe Bastardi even compared the South Pole’s new record to King Kong belting a 700-foot home run out of the ballpark. Not wanting to get too carried away, we have to keep in mind that we are looking here at the satellite record only, which goes back to 1979. Yet, it is still truly amazing by any standard.

“If Hamas does not like you for any reason all they have to do now is say you are a Mossad agent and kill you.” — A., a Fatah member in Gaza.
“Hamas wanted us butchered so it could win the media war against Israel showing our dead children on TV and then get money from Qatar.” — T., former Hamas Ministry officer.
“They would fire rockets and then run away quickly, leaving us to face Israeli bombs for what they did.” — D., Gazan journalist.
“Hamas imposed a curfew: anyone walking out in the street was shot. That way people had to stay in their homes, even if they were about to get bombed. Hamas held the whole Gazan population as a human shield.” — K., graduate student
“The Israeli army allows supplies to come in and Hamas steals them. It seems even the Israelis care for us more than Hamas.” — E., first-aid volunteer.
“We are under Hamas occupation, and if you ask most of us, we would rather be under Israeli occupation… We miss the days when we were able to work inside Israel and make good money. We miss the security and calm Israel provided when it was here.” — S., graduate of an American university, former Hamas sympathizer. …
S., a medical worker, told Zarhan:
“The Israeli army sends warnings to people [Gazans] to evacuate buildings before an attack. The Israelis either call or send a text message. Sometimes they call several times to make sure everyone has been evacuated. Hamas’s strict policy, though, was not to allow us to evacuate. Many people got killed, locked inside their homes by Hamas militants. Hamas’s official Al-Quds TV regularly issued warnings to Gazans not to evacuate their homes. Hamas militants would block the exits to the places residents were asked to evacuate. In the Shijaiya area, people received warnings from the Israelis and tried to evacuate the area, but Hamas militants blocked the exits and ordered people to return to their homes. Some of the people had no choice but to run towards the Israelis and ask for protection for their families. Hamas shot some of those people as they were running; the rest were forced to return to their homes and get bombed. This is how the Shijaiya massacre happened. More than 100 people were killed.'”
Man tror det er løgn …
Her er lidt modgift , der vil få dig til at grine :)
Den eskalerende borgerkrig i Mellemøsten tager livet af den arabiske civilisation – eller resterne af den – og rammer Vesten som en naturkatastrofe.
Det er blevet efterår, ikke bare herhjemme. Som de fleste nok har bemærket, er det herostratisk omtalte arabiske forår, som fik mainstreammedier og idealistiske politikere til at glimte af håb og humanisme, afløst af blod i sandet og mørke midt på dagen. Analytikere har allerede beskrevet det, og det skal siges igen: Den arabiske civilisation er brudt sammen, det er game-over.
Vi ser, at det hele er noget lort på de kanter. Og vi ser noget andet og endnu værre – for os: At vi ikke evner at forvare os mod opløsningen af den arabiske civilisation. Deres ødelæggelse kan blive vores ødelæggelse. Vi importerer den nemlig.
Her tænker jeg ikke kun på de varme lande som arnested for radikalisme og jihad. Det er næsten for banalt, her er dagens episode. Næ, jeg tænker naturligvis også på den voksende strøm af flygtninge og asylansøgere, der vandrer mod Europa – og for de flestes vedkommende – kommer frem og opnår en eller anden ret til at være her – på de europæiske skatteyderes regning.

Man har åbenbart lært en masse af muslimsk forskning :)
Fornylig fik SverigeDemokraterne næsten 13 % af stemmerne ved valget i Sverige.
Hvordan kunne det dog ske ?
Hvad kunne dog have fået så mange mennesker til at stemme på så slemt et parti ?
MSM-Aviser gik i gang med at bortforklare resultatet, og her er aftenbladet -
en af de værste socialistiske sprøjter i Sverige med deres valgte “forsker” kommet sin konklusionen:
Alle i Sverige kan ånde lettet op : det havde alligevel ikke noget at gøre med indvandring !!
Jeg går ud fra at forskeren snart vil komme med en follow-up til den svenske sprøjte :
Månen er lavet af grøn ost !

Chief Meteorologist At Weatherbell Analytics: Organizers Of People’s Climate March Were ‘Prostituting The Weather And Climate’
Dom Giordano talked to Joe Bastardi, from Weatherbell Analytics, on Talk Radio 1210 WPHT to discuss the People’s Climate March in New York City.
Bastardi said that people are not causing climate change and expects scientific data to eventually back that up.
“The debate on what is going on is over. It is over. Now we just have to see what happens when the Atlantic flips into its cold cycle and the cyclical nature of the sun, whether we return to the temperatures we were in the late seventies as measured by objective satellite readings.”
He commented that the protestors at the climate march were more concerned with their political agenda than climate science.
“If you really paid attention to what happened, the mask is off, and I appreciate that those people that organized this came out and let us know who they were. If you look at the list of people, Communist Party USA, Socialists. Fine, if you want to have that debate, that debate should be done at the polling place and should be done in the halls of Congress or try to change laws. It shouldn’t be prostituting the weather and climate for your own needs.”
Bastardi stated there are technical disagreements that can be addressed among scientists, but really doesn’t rise to any level of concern for the general public.
“This is ridiculous. This should be two weather geeks arguing over a chess game with a cup of tea or whatever you want to drink. The whole thing is blown out, it’s one of the weirdest arguments I’ve ever been involved with, because in the end, there is nothing new under the sun, and nature, not man, rules the climate system.”
