legalization of marijuana is american public's top issue

earth quake activity at yellow stone intensified today

Above: recent earth quakes worldwide.

During Dec. 27 and 28, there was a swarm of earthquakes under Yellowstone in the 3.0-3.9 range. Activity then dropped off to quakes less than 2.0 on the Richter magnitude scale. But today the quakes intensified above 2.0 with one recorded at 3.3 this morning.

This earthquake activity at Yellowstone is the most intense in this area for some years; the swarm is in a single location in the middle of Yellowstone Lake right above the magma chamber. What can also be seen on the seismic graphs are harmonic tremors — a sort of low level constant rumbling that indicates magma is on the move ... not good; harmonic tremors are a sure sign of impending eruption. It is possible such an eruption could be mild, or it could be the much feared Yellowstone 'Big One' which could bring humanity close to extinction.

The University of Utah Seismograph Stations reports that a notable swarm of earthquakes has been underway since December 26 beneath Yellowstone Lake in Yellowstone National Park, three to six miles south-southeast of Fishing Bridge, Wyoming. This energetic sequence of events was most intense on December 27, when the largest number of events of magnitude 3 and larger occurred. The largest of the earthquakes was a magnitude 3.9 (revised from magnitude 3.8) at 10:15 pm MST on Dec. 27. The sequence has included nine events of magnitude 3 to 3.9 and approximately 24 of magnitude 2 to 3 at the time of this release.

radical alternatives proposed for cannabis controls

A report by a group of prominent academics and government advisers has backed schmoo on the run's long standing proposals to change the law to allow the state to grow and deal cannabis for recreational use .... because the most dangerous thing about cannabis is cannabis prohibition.

"The damage done by prohibition is worse than from the substance itself," says Amanda Feilding, founder of the Beckley Foundation which brought together the 'commission' of experts who contributed to the report.

Unfortunately the Beckley Foundation seems to think that selling weak weed will stop people growing and dealing skunk on the black market - this is utterly naive. The only way to protect people's health is to legalise all forms of cannabis. Once natural but still strong strains of cannabis such as Nepalese Temple Balls, Acapulco Gold, Panama Red, Durban Poison etc are available, no one will want 'skunk' any more. These natural strains do not have the same bad 'psychosis' side effects as 'skunk', which is a product of prohibition.

The Beckley commission's ideas will be aired in March at a meeting in Vienna, Austria, of the UN Commission on Narcotic Drugs. The UNCND will report to a meeting of the UN general assembly later this year that will set international policy on drug control for the decade to come.

palestinian girl: hamas responsible for war

While the inmates of Gaza, the biggest 'open prison' in the world, have to sit out the Israeli bombardment with no protection, their Hamas prison guards are sitting safe in a huge underground bunker complex known as 'lower Gaza', housing 15,000. Meanwhile a Hamas rocket hit a nursery school in Israel today, luckily it was empty.

why woolworths went down

Good news! The massive Aladdin's Cave of Crap on Edgeware Road in London known as Woolworths has shape shifted into a new Waitrose, one of the best run food shops in Britain

Apparently Waitrose tried to hire as many ex Woolsworths staff as possible - but in the end only five of them were up to scratch. The rest were either too rude, or too stupid. No wonder Woolworths went down.

YouTube has cut some of the most viewed video posts about the Gaza counter attack on the new Israeli Defence Force YouTube site. No censorship is good, but those BDSM fighter cockpit snuff movies are definitely obscene.

even the left in israel support gaza counter attack

Above: Palestinian prisoners released by Israel - Palestinian prisoners escape from a Hamas police building following an Israeli air strike in Gaza City on December 28, 2008.

Even the Israeli left-wing Meretz party is supporting the attack on Hamas. They issued a rare statement calling for military action last Thursday; "The time has come to act without compromise and without narrow political considerations to protect the residents of Gaza-area communities and Sderot". Meretz, which usually calls for negotiation and dialogue with Palestinian militants, said the current escalation in rocket attacks has left Israel with no choice but to work on two fronts simultaneously. "Strike Hamas in a targeted manner and work for a new cease-fire," it said.

The 'British Bigot Left Tendency' typified by the likes of George Galloway, friend of Sadam Hussain just don't get it .... as usual.

how hamas was tricked by israel

It appears that Hamas was lulled into a false sense of security by Israel, and were taken by surprise when the Israeli counter attack came on the Jewish sabbath ... the fools. Now the people of Gaza are paying a tragic price for the bigoted, racist, homophobic, Hamas hate agenda, run by obviously incompetent and very stupid idiots, who have now caused the deaths of hundreds of their fellow country men and women and children due to their despicable intransigence. The people of Gaza should rise up and run the Hamas henchmen out of town, preferably towards the barrel of the nearest Israeli tank.

"Peace will come when the Arabs love their children more than they hate us." - Golda Meir.

what next on Gaza + how US & Israel frittered away any small chance of dealing with Hamas peacefully years ago.

clean nuclear fusion to save humanity from green nazi nightmare

Above: say goodbye to all those crazy windmill schemes and solar panels that use more energy to create than they will ever produce; nuclear fusion is on the way.

Hopefully this will be the end of the ridiculous 'green nazi' fantasy of forcing everyone to live in smelly 'climate change camp' style 'eco' concentration camps, surviving on nettle soup and recharging batteries using bicycles that don't go anywhere.

This spring scientists at the National Ignition Facility (NIF) in Livermore, California, will use a laser that concentrates 1,000 times the electric generating power of the United States into a billionth of a second. The result should be an explosion in the 32ft-wide reaction chamber which will produce at least 10 times the amount of energy used to create it.

The scientists are already working with British counterparts on the next step; a fusion power station. A project known as the High Powered Laser Research Facility aims to create the first working laser-powered fusion reactor which will create a source of almost unlimited 'clean' energy.

Prof Mike Dunne, director of the central laser facility at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory near Oxford, said: "The National Ignition Facility is going to finally prove fusion can be achieved with a laser. It will start an exciting new period in physics as it will prove what we are trying to achieve is actually possible."

Or not of course.

long live israel - long live palestine

Hamas really are jerks, a bit like the greek anarchist nihilists only worse. At least the greek nutters do not believe in some crazy religion. What they have in common is their ability to ruin the communities they live in through mindless and ineffective violence, and their total inability to do anything positive to improve the lives of anyone. Israel has every right to attack and kill these murdering bastards. They should also bomb the dogs with size 12 shoes. Hamas brought all this on themselves, but now Hamas and their bigoted, blinkered and ignorant 'pro-Palestinian' western supporters, cry 'massacre'. No doubt these same stupid people were avidly watching the criminal Iranian president's Christmas message on Channel 4, the trendy miss-guided prat channel. If these creeps really cared about Palestine they would be cheering on the Israeli Air Force, but like the Iranian president, most of them are anti-Semitic bigots. The sooner the evil and perverted Hammas influence is extinguished, the sooner the normal good people of Gaza can get back to living normal lives. Hopefully Israel can take out the hamas leadership completely this time - but they should send in 'assassination-for-peace' squads to avoid further civilian deaths. Long live Palestine - long live Israel.

the pope is a joke - fuck the pope

Above: Police in Portsmouth marked the eve of Christianities holiest day yesterday by threatening a local shop owner with arrest for displaying a poster (above) that mocks Satan's true representative on earth; the Pope.

The poster is an obvious reference to the Pope's end-of-the-year speech which looks like turning into a well deserved credibility crunch crisis for the vile Catholic cult.

The Pontiff stated that saving humanity from homosexual or transsexual behaviour was as important as protecting the environment.

The pope has been buggered. By himself of course, being celibate and obviously a fool.

Meanwhile back in Portsmouth police read from their Bible, quoting Section 4 of the Public Order Act, and informed the shop owner that if he failed to remove the poster and was found guilty, he could face imprisonment of up to 6 months.

* European nations where the Catholic Church is strongest such as Italy, France, Spain and Ireland have one thing in common; substantially more drug addicts than nations less psychologically damaged by a perverted religion, such as Britain and the Netherlands.

* Channel 4's "alternative" Christmas Day broadcast is to be delivered by President Ahmadinejad of Iran. Apparently he will say that if Jesus Christ were alive today, he would oppose US hegemony. Yes, and the fucking pope for sure ... and the homophobic Iranian fucking government too.

leds the way for eco lighting 'revolution'

If all of the world's light bulbs were replaced with LEDs, otherwize known as light-emitting diodes, it has recently been estimated that in just ten years:

• Carbon dioxide emissions would be reduced by 10.68 gigatons.
• The number of power plants required worldwide would be reduced by 280.
• Total energy consumption would be reduced by 1,929.84 joules.
• A strong reduction in the emission of pollutants such as acid-rain-causing SO2, mercury (Hg), and uranium.
• Electrical energy consumption would be reduced by terawatt hours.
• Financial savings of $1.83 trillion.
• Crude oil consumption would be reduced by 962 million barrels.

Researchers lay out vision for eco lighting 'revolution'.

shoe throwing hero has broken arm, ribs, cuts

The shoe throwing hero Muntazer Zaidi has suffered a broken arm and ribs plus cuts to the eye and arm at the hands of the Iraqi authorities, according to his brother. Laughing off the incident as 'weird' President Bush said yesterday that the incidence was an example of a free society in Iraq. Now it is turning into a public relations disaster in the middle east for the worst American president ever.

new credit crunch package to restart britain

None of the credit crunch breakfast cereal packages on offer from any of the main political supermarket chains cut the muster here at the safe house. Too many synthetic sweeteners, toxic debts and not enough fresh fruity ideas. Therefore the 'Committee On Preparing For The End Of Now Forever' offers the following credit crunch package recipe ideas:

1. Create a decent Peoples Bank out of Northern Rock, and all the other bits of bailed out junk, plus the Post Office, to offer essential financial services for individuals and business. Lend to people and companies according to their tax records.

2. Turn mortgage defaulters into council tenants, allowing them to retain 'part ownership' for what they have already paid for, and pay rent for the rest. Council tenants can use the 'right to buy' to restart a new mortgage if things ever 'pick up'.

3. Make all public transport free.

4. With thousands losing their jobs, abolish unemployment overnight by paying everyone over 16 a basic living wage regardless of their employment status; anyone working will simply have this deducted as tax. At the moment the government spends more than £9000, to pay less than £3000 in benefits. Making people sign on is a total waste of time and money. Besides, surviving on income support is a full time job.

5. Urgently reform Unfair Britain before there is a violent revolution of people even more crazy than the people running things at the moment. For example; someone who earns £100 pounds an hour pays the same price for everything as someone who only earns £10 pounds an hour. This means that everything is much more expensive for poorer people. A ‘ price banding’ system needs to be developed that allows the profit part of a product price to be varied according to how much the customer earns per hour. If you are in the lowest earnings per hour band you will pay the least. This would make all pricing fair for the first time.

6. Start a Peoples Supermarket with decent wages and really cheap prices thanks to not having any shareholders to pay off, backed up by the development of a massive nationwide allotment vegetable growing program to produce really nutritional food.

7. Turn all the empty Woolworths into multi media entertainment venues with non stop live bands comedians, DJs, magicians, films, theatre and other amazing acts, creating thousands of jobs, especially for talented young people all over Britain.

8. Avoid destroying the green belt, and the few remaining school playing fields. Instead create 'real estate in the sky' by building housing on bridges over rivers, and by building on top of major roads in towns and cities, turning the roads into pollution controlled tunnels. When the floods come at least thease homes will be safe.

9. Start investing in Britain's first Space Lift so we can open the space frontier and start mining the moon, consider a holiday on Mars, and send all our toxic nuclear waste to the sun for permanent incineration.

10. Install soft 'sleeping police men' road bumps that generate electric power every time a car goes over them, on every street in Britain.

11. Immediately start a national program to build the infrastructure required for the mass use of hydrogen fuel. The latest Top Gear has a review of a hydrogen car built by Honda that actually works.

12. While preparing for every contingency at home, sponsor and support an international disaster immediate response force, manned partly by volunteers from all over the world, plus retrained army people, to deal with natural and man made disasters due to unstoppable dramatic climate change.

13. End the tax free status for pot dealers and hookers and legalise prostitution and cannabis. Government 'Work Start' grants for licensed cannabis growing operations would create thousands of jobs all over Britain. Legalisation will save the NHS millions, being by far the safest option for everyone, plus over £1 billion a year in police, court, and prison costs for cannabis alone.

new ketamine abuse warning

Ketamine abuse has screwed up many an otherwize good party, notably in the seedier end of the london squat party scene. For typical 'K Heads', the end of the night often happens at the beginning. Now it looks like a lot of these people will be part of a medical time bomb of their own making.

new study reveals that 59 ketamine abusers treated at Hong Kong hospitals from March 2000 to December 2007 were all suffering moderate to severe lower urinary tract symptoms, such as urgency, frequency, and difficulty urinating.

Visual examination with a cystoscope revealed an inflamed bladder in 42 of these individuals, and biopsies showed that 12 of them had a more serious condition called interstitial cystitis.

On further testing, 47 patients were found to have overactive bladder or decreased bladder elasticity.

Damage to one or both kidneys was seen on ultrasound in 30 patients, and four of them had areas of dead kidney tissue.

bush: mean sneaky bastard to the end

President Bush's final acts in power, which he has held to the end to make it more difficult to over turn, will make it easier for coal companies to dump waste from strip-mining into valleys and streams, ease the building of coal-fired power stations nearer to national parks, allow people to carry loaded and concealed weapons in national parks, open up millions of acres to mining for oil shale, allow healthcare workers to opt out of giving treatment for religious or moral reasons, thus weakening abortion rights, and hurt road safety by allowing truck drivers to stay at the wheel for 11 consecutive hours.

crunch solution: make public transport free

Almost everyone agrees the 2.5 cut in vat is an expensive waste of tax payers cash, especially as the poorest people can only afford to buy food which is not taxed with vat so it does not help them at all. Even the shopaholic 'working consumer of crap class' benefit so little it won't make any difference to how much they already owe on their maxed out credit binge cards.

Making public transport free on the other hand .... this would help everyone, including total public transport snobs who insist on driving. The roads will be clear of traffic, so they can pretend they have the size of car cock reviewed in Top Gear, the best bi male sex fantasy program on TV. Apart from this benefit, by making public transport free we could cut oil consumption and imports, cut road congestion, cut pollution, improve health, and have all kinds of other positive effects, like making more traffic wardens unemployed. One way to help pay for free public transport would be to tax cannabis users, dealers, smugglers and indoor farmers; after all they pay no tax, import duties or vat at the moment.

It has been estimated that free public transport in Scotland would cost about 1 billion a year; chicken feed in comparison to the bailout cash currently being thrown around.

The Belgian city of Hasselt successfully introduced free public transport on 1 July 1997. The result over ten years later is reduced congestion, pollution and CO2 levels, and people leaving their cars at home, with a 960% increase in passenger numbers.

bush escapes rapid shoe throwing attack

Above: president Bush shows excellent ducking ability as he comes under rapid shoe fire in iraq. According to Bloomberg: In Arab culture, throwing shoes is a grave show of disrespect. The man shouted an Arabic phrase, which an Iraqi present translated as “this is a farewell kiss, dog.”

bush reported to be drinking heavily, called wife "cunt". Apparently Laura Bush's stays at the White House are less frequent and her overnight trips to the Mayflower Hotel often coincide with the president's drunken binges.

update: thousands march in iraq demanding release of the shoe throwing journalist Muntadar al-Zaidi who is being hailed as a hero. Meanwhile Bush is saying the incident is a sign of a free society in Iraq, and that being under shoe fire as "may rank up there as one of the weirdest" things to have happened in his presidency. Of course he was not counting himself when he said that.

london anarchist nihilists fail in dalston

A few London anarchist nihilists who tried to stage a Greek tragedy riot enactment in Dalson today are complaining about heavy handed police brutality, after two of them were arrested, one for allegedly punching a police officer in the face. Inept 'anarchist freedom fighter' attempts to block a road and prevent freedom of travel failed, as did all attempts at 'explaining what was going on in Greece to the local population in Dalston', except to make them absolutely certain, without a shadow of a doubt, that they never want what is happening in Greece replayed in their streets, or their shopping centre, which they do not want looted, because there are some good deals going there at the moment, especially with Woolworths going under. The sales in January will be even better, especially if you need crap tat, made not to last.

The trouble with looting is that it is just another manifestation of capitalism; looting puts up prices, and is only for the 'privileged few', while the vast majority of poor people always end up paying more. Besides, most of the stuff on offer is not worth either looting or paying for.

greek riot timetable: the daily riot

Here is the advance greek riot forecast for next week:

monday 15th dec - at least 90 rioters were arrested on saturday night, so on monday there will be a major confrontation between the 'infuriated ones' and the police outside the court house and police head quarters.

tuesday 16th dec - the 'anarchist government', operating from around camp fires at Athens Polytechnic, has announced that on tuesday compulsory road blocks should be set up.

wendesday 17th dec - yet another 'demonstration' looting opportunity outside the courthouse when the policemen involved in the original tragic shooting will testify how they were trying to protect themselves from a crazy lynch mob of spoiled brats.

thursday 18th dec - the 'anarchist government' has announced that everyone in Greece will be forced to experience a national demonstration on Thursday, 'by order'.

friday 19th dec - someone will think up some excuse for sure, if the kids are a bit tired by now and it gets really boring, the fascist thugs pretending to be anarchists will do their bit to keep the pot boiling.

saturday 20 dec - the 'anarchist government', has declared Saturday 20th an "international day of resistance in memory of all those assassinated by the state", as it issues increasingly apocalyptic and insane statements.

this information is subject to change at any moment due to right wing military coup or stalinist communist take over, real civil war breaking out, kids going home for christmas, media moving on due to a sex scandal involving the pope, or least likely, the arrival of a more civilised and considerate approach to politics on all sides. etc

greek teenagers continue tantrum

There was a brief lull in the Greek riots due to the police running out of tear gas and the rioters running out of beer bottles to make Molotov cocktails. The lull is now very over, and the rioters have been making good use of their new Lazar beam technology, pictured above, which they are using to mark out police men for Molotov attack. It looks like Greece is doomed to a load more pointless violence and silly political crap for ages. Seems the kids don't want to quit smashing up their play pen, and they are being aided and abetted by the anarchist nihilists, most of whom are just adults who never grew up.

greek teenagers - very informative article.
rolling news on Greek riots - fairly informative but disorganised ongoing anarchist nihilist greek riot porn news, even more biased than the bbc.
tapes gone loose has some interesting on the spot observations from the 'liberated' Athens Town Hall, and the hapless attempts of the elected representatives of the people to get it back. As expected organised fascist violence is emerging from the violence of the anarchist nihilists. The fascists are wielding iron bars and using the ominous name of 'Golden Dawn'. Looks like the naive students and pseudo 'news of the world' anarchists may discover what happens when law and order really breaks down.

madoff securities triggers 50 billion fraud tsunami

It is hard to understand how Bernie Madoff, the 50 billion fraudster pictured above, could run his billion dollar scam operation for years without any regulators or investors realising.

In fact several years ago a financial advisory firm called Aksia did a very basic investigation and has been advising its clients to stay well clear of Madoff Securities ever since. It hardly required the talents of Sherlock Holmes to discover that Bernie Madoff, responsible for billions of dollars worth of investments, was using a firm of accountants called Friehling and Horowitz who had just three employees, one of whom was a 78 year old woman who lived in Florida, one was a secretary, leaving just one actual qualified accountant. The accountant's office, based in Rockland County, NY, consisted of one room, measuring 13ft x 18ft.

Aksis also did some basic sums that showed Madoff Securities could not possibly be making the profits it claimed. It seems very likely that some, if not many, very rich and important investors also knew that Madoff was up to no good; how else could he generate such impossibly good returns for their investment cash. They obviously kept quiet, happy to take the good profits, all the time thinking the scam must be some kind of insider trading. But they were wrong. The scam was not insider trading, it was just a simple common fraud. The investors had fallen for a very normal kind of rip off, except for the fact that it was for 50 billion dollars, their 50 billion dollars. This sets a new bench mark for robbers and thieves, making the Great Train Robbery look like a corner store job. Some totally innocent people have lost everything. Some are saying this could be worse than Enron as the massive losses spread worldwide over the next few days and weeks in yet another destructive global financial tsunami of wealth evaporation.

zimbabwe; three eggs and a crack pot dictator

Apparently the note above used to buy three eggs in Zimbabwe, but not anymore according to 'What the real crisis is like', an excellent photo history of the Zimbabwean Dollar.. Meanwhile the cholera epidemic in Zimbabwe was caused by Britain, Gordon Brown picking his nose presumably, according to 'president' Robert Mugabe, pronounced 'muckgarbage', who shames his country, his people, his neighbours, and his continent. How come he don't take the money and run so Zimbabwe can be turned into a massive western corporation run food farm, and his people enslaved for yet more generations, now that all the liberal white farmers who stayed as long as they could, have been got rid of.

behind every anarchist nihilist are ten fascists

The young Greek 'anarchist' brat nihilists laying waste to the centre of Athens while claiming to be some kind of positive revolution, and the arm chair macho 'anarchists' glorifying mindless violence and goading the rioters on via the internet should stop, think, and remember that every time violent chaos rears is ugly head, fascism and more state oppression are sure to follow. Of course most of these so called 'anarchists' are about as anarchist as the next state dole check they are waiting for, and are heavily addicted to riot porn and always want to blame someone else for everything, while being incredibly selfish at the same time. True anarchists and anyone with any common sense or compassion for normal everyday people will reject this indulgent use of mindless violence and destruction in Athens and anywhere else. This type of 'anarchy' and chaos has nothing to do with building any type of anarchist society, except the Hollywood 'News of the World' Madmax version, and only brings further misery and oppression for the masses, as if they don't have enough already, while creating the perfect breeding ground for fascism. Humanity needs to build bridges, not burn them.

are you plane stupid

It is seemingly all too easy for otherwise intelligent good looking people to fall for the awful mixture of sanctimonious and hysterical ballshit from plane stupid. Yet the evidence proves beyond all reasonable doubt that plane stupid and the people who fund them are not only eco fascists, but hypocrites to boot.

Yet another example of plain stupid hypocrisy; bail restrictions for the plane stupid morons who ruined thousands of innocent peoples travel plans recently by behaving like eco fascist loonies at Stanstead Airport, include not being allowed near any airports, which seems more than fair. But according to gossip on the legal grapevine some of the arrested plane stupid eco twits still had the nerve to complain that they would not be able to visit relatives at christmas .... because the bail restrictions meant they would not be able to fly.

In the spirit of chrismas schmoo will be giving
RyanAir free advertising. RyanAir is one of the few companies to have the courage to stand up to these demented idiots campaigning to make air travel only available to the very rich or fighter bomber pilots, because they think this will 'save the world'. Plane Stupid are even more self deluded than Gordon Brown. Air travel contributes 3 per cent of co2, meat production contributes 18 per cent. With China bringing a new coal fired power station on line every week, restricting freedom of air travel will make only a tiny difference to global co2 levels, and will have no effect at all in stopping the climate change disaster facing humanity. In fact the hysterical belief that humanity has the ability to stop global warming by cutting co2 is no different to the various populist and self deluding religious beliefs about 'heaven' supported by those whose egos cannot handle the concept of their own permanent death. Instead of wasting time with this plain stupid nonsense we should be organising global and local preparations for the Age of Never Ending Disasters. Billions of lives are at stake, including our own.

ryanair has some amazing deals with lots of seats going from 3 pounds including silly air port taxes and extra eco fascist charges that go to the government supported by the likes of plane stupid and gordon brown although they make no difference to pollution levels and hurt poorer travelers.

antarctic ozone hole: 5th biggest ever recorded

Above: NASA image of the 2008 ozone hole maximum, reached on Sept. 12. Credit: NASA. The size of this ozone years hole is 10.5 million square miles. The largest hole recorded was in 2006 at 10.6 million square miles.

Thomas Midgley invented CFCs which are believed to be the main cause of the ozone hole. He also invented lead in petrol, another total disaster. His final invention was an elaborate system of strings and pulleys to help others lift him from his bed after becoming disabled by polio. He was accidentally entangled in the ropes of this device and died of strangulation at the age of 55.

obama on marijuana: "i inhaled ... frequently"

"when i was a kid ... i inhaled .... frequently, that was the point."

In the past Obama has supported decriminalisation of marijuana, legal medical cannabis and has criticised the War on Drugs, but has back tracked more recently. Obama's vice president choice Joe Biden is an
arch drug war warrior of the worst kind.

Obama promised his wife he would quit smoking before starting his campaign to be president - he failed. This is the best evidence yet that he might actually be human, although it is entirely possible aliens from another planet could love smoking weed, just like millions of humans.

no russian honeymoon for obama

above: nokia and lenin in novosibirsk, siberia, (taken on a nokia).

Obama's honeymoon with Russia lasted exactly no time at all. Within micro seconds of Obama election victory Russia's president was on the news wires announcing he would put short-range Iskander missiles in Kaliningrad, a region wedged between Poland and Lithuania, to "neutralize" the planned U.S. missile-defense system if it went ahead.

This should not be too surprising as Obamas policy statements about Russia have been full of neo-cold war crap. For example Obama is either ignorant of the true facts about the Georgian war crime against South Ossetia, or more hopefully just taking the politically most expedient line which will now be dumped. now is the testing time. Obama should understand Russia is like Britain - Russia does not want it's empire back.

The schmoo sanity test for Obama: if Obama is really cool he will do a defence cooperation deal with Russia as suggested by ... Russia. This would include the missile defence system but unite russia with the west in defence against the likes of Iran and also save a lot of cash. Obama should also end the US trade embargo on Cuba asp. If he does these two things he will have passed the test.

i like gordon brown because

i like Gordon Brown because he throws mobile phones at people, because he stays up working late and looks like shit in the morning, because he bites his nails and picks his nose, because he gets very depressed sometimes and looks it, because he can't trust anyone to do anything right, because he does not know how to schmooze to save his life, because he has done more to end poverty in Britain and elsewhere than any Tory robbing bastard ever will, because he probably suffers from computer compulsion and can actually write his own emails, because he is often crap at giving speeches and interviews, in fact Gordon Brown has got to be one of the coolest politicians ever.

chevron whitewashes website as murder trial continues

This is interesting: "Chevron has quietly removed from its website any reference to its operations in Burma, a country where the oil giant has been implicated in allegations of rape and murder connected to a lucrative pipeline project that generates up to $1 billion annually for the country’s brutal military regime, the Amazon Defense Coalition said today.

The company has replaced the majority of substantive information on its website with a short page glossing over their role in the country.

Chevron removed the references to Burma while it has been embroiled in high-stakes legal case charging it helped orchestrate the deaths of two Nigerian villagers protesting Chevron’s operational practices in the African country. The trial on those charges began Tuesday in federal court in San Francisco."

In the Amazon region of Ecuador, Chevron faces a potential $16.3 billion liability for dumping more than 18 billion gallons of toxic waste, there are also allegations that Chevron has supported the use of slave labour in Burma.

palin sarkozy prank shows Ross and Brand

now this is the sort of thing Ross and Brand should have been doing if they want to do phone pranks, but they would probably have been banned anyway thanks to the fascist email lynch mob now on the rampage in britain, who really just want a reason to not pay their TV licence fee because they've maxed out all their credit cards on crap, and need to vent their hatred and anger towards anything they do not understand, whipped up by the media corporations who really just want to take out the BBC and make a lot more cash without the competition, supported by a craven spin mongering and desperate government who really just wants to keep the continuing and worsening financial crisis off the front pages. Here at the safehouse we happily pay the TV licence as an insurance against Murdock or some other corporate whore pimp owned media monster owning everything. Ross and Brand should be told they can have their jobs back immediately if they can phone prank David Cameron, plus a one million pound bonus if they can destroy his political career for ever. It would be licence fee payer's money well spent.

bloggerheads has some good points and links on the hypocrisy of the whole bad sad sick joke.

atlargely points out that in the prank interview sarah palin proves she does not know the name of the Canadian prime minister

climate change camp crazies clash

The climate change issue seems to have died a death for the moment due to the credit crunch fake money reality crisis despite a recent outburst from prince charles, and a stupid attempt to cause trouble at a power station ..... but here is some entertainment back from august .... frankly it was a case of 'nutter nuts even nuttier' as arch climate change professional hysteria merchant George Monbiot proved he retains some modicum of sanity by taking apart and soundly nutting the climate change camp pseudo anarchist and totally unrealistic fundamentalist eco panic zealot Ewa Jasiewicz of the 'back to the caves and nettle soup tendency'.

short schmoo climate change spiel: of course dramatic climate change is happening, humanity contributes but nothing like the contribution of nature, and there is nothing wrong with flying organic green beans from Kenya, their total co2 foot print is less than green beans from Kent and it helps a lot of good African people make a living. Most importantly, we should not kid ourselves that humanity can stop global warming effects even if it was responsible, so the truth is that massive humanitarian disasters are very likely in the future. Cutting Co2 waste, toxic pollution and conserving finite energy sources plus developing alternatives are obviously sensible but will not stop climate change and dangerous global warming. plane flights = 3 per cent of human co2, meat production = 18 per cent; plane stupid are morons. Beware the manipulation of scare merchants with political agendas and panicked lost souls desperate for an answer. Also windmills and solar panels are a joke if you rely just on them for humanities survival as a species. Instead of wasting time and resources on futile, self harming attempts to stop climate change, we should face the changes that are happening now and the changes to come with practical solutions, ensuring no one is left behind, this is a massive global task but it is achievable, unlike the fools errand of trying to stop climate change. Already millions are dying while arrogantly pontificating ignorant rich kids of the west like Ewa Jasiewicz waste time camping in their anarcho-playpens.

green party candidate in homophobia scandal

Way back in April this year some storybooks for children which included 'gay' relationship story lines to help stop bullying were withdrawn from two Bristol primary schools following objections from sexually paranoid parents.

Thanks to Harry's Place it has since emerged that local Green Party Council candidate, Tony Gosling, told The Muslim News he was “personally disgusted” by the books. “No way should kids be indoctrinated in this way. Anyone who says so is branded as homophobic which they are not; it’s the gay mafia in full swing,” he said. (Muslim News, 25 April 2008)

Finally, on the last day of October, the 'Green' Party woke up, smelt the muesli and is now on a major damage limitation exercise led by Peter Tatchell, but although he threatens "disciplinary action" he fails to do the only honourable thing which is to demand Gosling's immediate resignation and expulsion from the Green Party.

There is absolutely no excuse for the Green Party as it appears they have had Tony Gosling as their official candidate since 2005.

It is time the UK Greens got hold of some eco friendly weed killer and rid themselves of the anti Semitic conspiracy nutters, pseudo anarchists and trustafarian crusties who have dominated and stymied the party for years. These politically and intellectually irrational, anti science, anti business, anti democratic, authoritarian 'anti-hierarchical', green 'nazies' have held back the development of a decent Green Party in Britain for far too long.

By squandering for years it's opportunities and duty to credibly represent the widely held desire for a more natural and sustainable approach to the way we live, the current 'Green' Party in Britain is itself an ecological disaster.

The Greens showed some sign of getting real last year when they voted by 73 per cent to have a party leader. For years they had followed an 'non-hierarchical' policy straight out of Animal Farm. This resulted in the Green Party UK being officially a 'leaderless' party, when in fact it was controlled, held back and intellectually corrupted by a small number of fundamentally bigoted, incompetent and out-of-touch-with-the-real-world people who dominated key party 'fiefdoms' with almost no party or democratic control. It was of course these very people who most strongly fought against having a leader; their cosy little political game world was under threat, and they might have to explain their incompetence, and justify their inept and stupid ideas. Thankfully they were soundly beaten in the end. However it is obvious, almost one year on, that the Green Party UK still needs a drastic detox. A massive enema might work, but who would want that job ....

new congo war- we are all guilty bystanders

above: mobile phone parts or 'blood-soaked chunks of the slaughter'

"The deadliest war since Adolf Hitler marched across Europe is starting again -- and you are almost certainly carrying a blood-soaked chunk of the slaughter in your pocket. When we glance at the holocaust in the Congo, with 5.4 million dead, the clichés of Africa reporting tumble out: this is a "tribal conflict" in "the Heart of Darkness." It isn't. The United Nations investigation found it was a war led by "armies of business" to seize the metals that make our twenty-first century society zing and bling. The war in Congo is a war about you". full article

perhaps america really is changing

the population of america have put up with being lied to, robbed, and poisoned for so long it is hard to believe that they may finally be twigging, but today 40 workers at a call center walked out rather than read out a lying McCaine phone spam script that slagged off Obama. "We were asked to read something saying [Obama and Democrats] were against protecting children from danger," this worker said. "I wouldn't do it. A lot of people left. They thought it was disgusting." viva america

sarah palin: "a proud, boastful ignoramus"

Christopher Hitchens has just written a great piece on the disgrace to our species Sarah Palin: "This is what the Republican Party has done to us this year: It has placed within reach of the Oval Office a woman who is a religious fanatic and a proud, boastful ignoramus. Those who despise science and learning are not anti-elitist. They are morally and intellectually slothful people who are secretly envious of the educated and the cultured. And those who prate of spiritual warfare and demons are not just "people of faith" but theocratic bullies. On Nov. 4, anyone who cares for the Constitution has a clear duty to repudiate this wickedness and stupidity."

• Pictured above is Sarah Palin proving why she needed to spend $150,000 dollars on some new cloths. Palin is with her political 'buddy' and long time mentor the Alaska Senator Ted Stevens. The two Alaskan politicians are so close it is said that Sarah Palin started her political career in Ted Steven's living room. Trouble is, darn gonnit, Ted Stevens has just today been been convicted on 7 criminal counts of lying about free home renovations and other gifts, worth about $250,000 that he received from Bill Allen, a wealthy oil contractor and former head of the oil company Veco Corp. According to AP: "The verdict throws the upcoming election into disarray. Stevens is fighting off a challenge from Democrat Mark Begich and must now either drop out or continue campaigning as a convicted felon."

us election: getting the latest news

Sarah Palin is by far the favourite in one thing - being the Halloween monster that American's are dressing up as in order to scare their friends. Image from which always has good information on the US election.

State of the art poll compilation site currently has Oboma with a 95.7 chance of winning the Whitehouse and McCain with just 4.3, meanwhile a Reuters/C-SPAN/Zogby poll is saying Obama's lead has dropped to just five points.

According to Publisher and Editor, Senator Obama leads in newspaper endorsements with 145 to McCain's 55. Thirty 'Republican' papers which supported Bush last time now support Obama, many citing McCain's choice of Sarah Palin as the clincher.

One of the latest newspapers to come out for Obama is the Anchorage Daily News, the largest newspaper in Governor Sarah Palin's state of Alaska, so they must know Palin better than most. Of her they said "few who have worked closely with the governor would argue she is truly ready to assume command of the most important, powerful nation on earth."

The New York Times has an interesting behind the scenes look at the McCain campaign and how Sarah Palin was chosen; it's pretty close to an obituary.

On Saturday in Albuquerque both presidential candidates held election events. Obama drew 45,000 supporters , McCain's had just 1000.

Newsweek is warning of the future Sarah Palin Problem; the rabid racist right wing 'Real American' monster created by McCain. Even Bush did not stoop as low.

Good sites for keeping up with US election news: and daily kos and crooks and liars.

respect's feminist policy; women at the back

If you go to a meeting organised by the Respect Party to listen to George Galloway expect to be segregated according to your sex, women at the back. Your Friend in the North and Harrys Place have more. Respect has got to be one of the most twisted examples of how a 'left' organisation can end up perverting the fundamental principles of the left, and become no better than the bigots and fascists they claim to oppose. These people are straight out of Animal Farm.

is christopher hitchens a "bloviating drunk"

A post on the daily kos recently called Christopher Hitchens a "bloviating drunk", but check this recent debate between Hitchens and typical Daily Kos anti Iraq war type Eric Alterman. Christopher Hitchens puts in a brilliant performance and wipes the floor with the conventional 'nice liberal' position on Iraq. Hitchens, who supports Oboma for president, is often wrongly and unfairly accused of being 'rightwing' or 'conservative' because he had the guts to support getting rid of Saddam Hussain. This interesting debate proves that Hitches upholds the traditional left wing principals of international justice and freedom from oppression for all, which most of the 'left' have abandoned for sentimental pacifist hypocrisy, and appeasement for genocide.

the left is dead, long live the left.

major world crisis within six months "guaranteed"

Democrat vice presidential candidate Joe Biden has guaranteed that if Barack Obama is elected president, there will be an international crisis within six months.

"Mark my words. It will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy. The world is looking. We're about to elect a brilliant 47-year-old senator president of the United States of America. Remember I said it standing here if you don't remember anything else I said. Watch, we're gonna have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy. I can give you at least four or five scenarios from where it might originate."

Of course this is a fairly safe bet who ever wins the next US General Deception. Ever since the First World War, if not before, the US economy has relied on the 'military industrial complex' and the never ending bailout they call ... war.

Invading Pakistan's tribal areas seems the obvious next bailout solution; years of fighting guaranteed.

chinese milk scandal spreads to mars

Authorities in Seoul have ordered Mars and Nestle to pull three products after melamine, which is usually used for making plastics, was detected in snacks made in China by the multinationals.

The industrial chemical had been found in M&M's milk chocolate snack and Snickers peanut Fun Size, both produced by Mars, and Kit Kat chocolate bars imported from Nestle Tianjin in China, Korea Food and Drug Administration said.

Melamine has been blamed for making thousands of infants ill and killing four in mainland China after it tainted baby milk powder in one of the country's worst ever product safety scandals.

The European Union recently banned all imports on Chinese milk-related products for children such as biscuits and chocolate on top of a long-standing embargo on Chinese dairy products like milk and yoghurt.

A fourth Chinese milk product has been withdrawn from sale in Australia after tests revealed it was tainted with melamine, Food Standards Australia New Zealand said in a statement.

"we have to do something before the markets open on monday"

above: hypo bubble bank on the run.

This is the forth weekend in a row where they are saying "we have to do something before the markets open on Monday" and for three Mondays in a row the headlines have been something original like "Meltdown Monday".

This weekend desperate attempts are being made to save the aptly named 'Hypo Real Estate' super bubble bank in Germany from collapse, the European equivalent of Lehman brothers, threatening a banking system collapse. "If there is no solution when stock markets open on Monday morning, the company won't make it two more days," said a banker quoted in Spiegel.

Black Monday 15 September - Lehman Brothers go down in controlled demolition which really started on 11.9.

Black Monday September 22 - Last two standing investment banks evaporate as Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs shape shift into bank holding companies, George Bush trying to get bail out, and his bail, passed with no oversight or foresight.

Black Monday 29 September - bail out vote fails, biggest Dow Jones fall ever, Bradford & Bingley nationalised, Hypo Real Estate rescue plan that failed announced.

Black Monday October 6th? - weekend spent in desperate attempts to save Hypo Real Estate after previous plan fails, desperate Germany guarantees all bank savings, seemingly declaring economic war on Britain, and everyone for themselves.
