How Government Bureaucrats & The NYTimes Are Misleading The Public About Climate Change

  • How Government Bureaucrats & The NYTimes Are Misleading The Public About Climate Change
    by Robert Murphy via The Institute for Energy Research, via https://www.zerohedge.com/
    The Executive Branch’s recently released Volume II of the National Climate Assessment (NCA) is a massive document that is being cited as yet further evidence that the U.S. government should act quickly and boldly in the fight against climate change. The coverage in the New York Times was typical:


    “All told, the report says, climate change could slash up to a tenth of gross domestic product by 2100, more than double the losses of the Great Recession a decade ago.”

    Yet this claim is extremely misleading, as I’ll demonstrate in this post. The projection of a 10-percent hit to GDP is an extremely unlikely (less than a 5-percent chance) event even if we assume we are in the most pessimistic of emission scenarios, while the scenario itself rests upon an assumption that progress on renewables and other technologies occurs much more slowly over the next century than it has already occurred historically. This means that anybody citing the NCA projections isn’t allowed to also tout imminent breakthroughs in wind and solar, because such optimism renders the NCA projections invalid.


    Even more astonishing, the NCA gives projections of the “cost of inaction” on climate change, but does not give any estimate of the costs of action on climate change. (It’s a bit like a mechanic warning that you need a new part to avoid engine failure down the road, but refusing to tell you how much the part will cost.) Yet if we follow the citations to other work (such as from the United Nations) that the NCA cites, we see that even using the NCA’s own diagram, it is not clear that aggressive steps to fight climate change would be worth the cost.

    The NCA Warns of a Potential 10-Percent Hit to U.S. GDP
    The NCA is massive. In the interest of giving the reader a digestible chunk of analysis, in this post I am restricting myself to the material in Chapter 29, which covers the topic of “mitigation” and considers the economic impacts of climate change on the U.S. This chapter contains the chart that led New York Times reporters to write, “climate change could slash up to a tenth of gross domestic product by 2100.”

Trump Has Been Broken by the Military/Security Complex

  • Trump Has Been Broken by the Military/Security Complex
    by Paul Craig Roberts, https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/
    In order to protect himself from the military/security complex, President Trump has abandoned his intention of normalizing relations with Russia. Just as the neoconservative ideology needs US hegemony, the military/security complex needs an enemy to justify the $1,000 billion annual budget. The Clinton, George W. Bush, and Obama regimes have crafted Russia into that enemy. Trump intended to change that, but he has been prevented.

    Russiagate is the orchestration used to force President Trump into submission.

    As Stephen Cohen, a few others and I have emphasized, the risk of nuclear war from the orchestrated confrontation with Russia is the highest ever with the situation today being more dangerous than during the Cold War. During the Cold War, both Washington and Moscow worked to reduce tensions and to build trust, but in the 21st century Washington has destroyed trust.

    The Russians have been very patient and have avoided belligerence in response to Washington’s insults and provocations, but now they announce “Russian patience is at an end.”

    Andrey Kortunov blames Trump, but the problem is the neoconservatives, the military/security complex, and presstitute media, a combination that has proved itself to be too powerful of a combination for a mere president. The Democratic Party and the liberal/progressive/left are complicit in the tragedy. They have permitted their hate to subvert judgment with the consequence that nuclear war again threatens life on earth.

    One Snub Too Many: Kremlin Ready to Turn Against Trump as Patience Coming to an End

UK Elite ‘Horrified’ “Russian Aggression” Fairytale Starts to Crumble – Journo

  • UK Elite ‘Horrified’ “Russian Aggression” Fairytale Starts to Crumble – Journo
    by https://sputniknews.com/
    UK media and parliamentarians have voiced concern over the fact that the UK’s largest online pharmacy, which has links to the NHS, has been ‘caught’ advertising with Russia’s RT television network. Sputnik has discussed another anti-Russia campaign spread in the UK media with political commentator and journalist Ollie Richardson.

    Sputnik: The Telegraph article’s headline says that the company was ‘found’ advertising on a Russian channel. Is this a crime? What is essentially wrong with the company’s business cooperation with RT?

    Ollie Richardson: 
    According to the logic of Westminster, spending UK taxes on financing jihadists in Libya — one of which came to Manchester and committed an act of terrorism in 2017 — is not a crime. So in this respect, the pro-Tory Telegraph is simply fulfilling its regular role of a propagandist outlet. The truth is that even if all UK-registered companies were banned from doing business with Russian state media, Downing Street would find some other nit to pick. Maybe the cleaner of an NHS hospital watched RT once — this would be enough, according to London, to brand her as an “agent of the Kremlin”.

The Guardian’s Reputation In Tatters After Forger Revealed To Have Co-Authored Assange Smear

  • The Guardian’s Reputation In Tatters After Forger Revealed To Have Co-Authored Assange Smear
    by Elizabeth Vos, https://disobedientmedia.com/
    Regular followers of WikiLeaks-related news are at this point familiar with the multiple serious infractions of journalistic ethics by Luke Harding and the Guardian, especially (though not exclusively) when it comes to Julian Assange and WikiLeaks. However, another individual at the heart of this matter is far less familiar to the public. That man is Fernando Villavicencio, a prominent Ecuadorian political activist and journalist, director of the USAID-funded NGO Fundamedios and editor of online publication FocusEcuador.

    Most readers are also aware of the Guardian’s recent publication of claims that Julian Assange met with former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort on three occasions. This has now been definitively debunked by Fidel Narvaez, the former Consul at Ecuador’s London embassy between 2010 and 2018, who says Paul Manafort has never visited the embassy during the time he was in charge there. But this was hardly the first time the outlet published a dishonest smear authored by Luke Harding against Assange. The paper is also no stranger to publishing stories based on fabricated documents.

    In May, Disobedient Media reported on the Guardian’s hatchet-job relating to ‘Operation Hotel,’ or rather, the normal security operations of the embassy under former Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa. That hit-piece, co-authored by Harding and Dan Collyns, asserted among other things that (according to an anonymous source) Assange hacked the embassy’s security system. The allegation was promptly refuted by Correa as “absurd” in an interview with The Intercept, and also by WikiLeaks as an “anonymous libel” with which the Guardian had “gone too far this time. We’re suing.”

    A shared element of The Guardian’s ‘Operation Hotel’ fabrications and the latest libel attempting to link Julian Assange to Paul Manafort is none other than Fernando Villavicencio of FocusEcuador. In 2014 Villavicencio was caught passing a forged document to the Guardian, which published it without verifying it. When the forgery was revealed, the Guardian hurriedly took the document down but then tried to cover up that it had been tampered with by Villavicencio when it re-posted it a few days later.

Why Russia Won’t Invade the Ukraine, the Baltic Statelets or Anybody Else

  • Why Russia Won’t Invade the Ukraine, the Baltic Statelets or Anybody Else
    by , http://www.unz.com/
    The AngloZionist propaganda machine is constantly warning us that Russia is about to invade some country. The list of candidates for invasion is long and ranges from Norway to the Ukraine and includes the Baltic statelets, Poland and even countries further West. Of course, we are also told that NATO and the US are here to prevent that. Well, thank God for them, right?

    But what is conspicuously missing from this narrative is a discussion of the possible Russian motives for such a military move. Typically, we are merely told that Russia has broken the European post-Cold War order and borders by “annexing” Crimea and by sending military forces into the Donbass. Anybody with an IQ at room temperature or above by now realizes that both of these claims are total bunk. The ones who indeed broke the post-Cold War international order and borders were the NATO member states when they used military force, in complete illegality, to break-up Yugoslavia. As for the people of Crimea, they had the opportunity to vote about their future in a referendum, very much unlike the inhabitants of Kosovo which had no such opportunity. As for the 08.08.08 war, even the Europeans who eventually, and very reluctantly, agreed that it was, in fact, Saakashvili who started this conflict, not Russia.

    But let’s set all this aside and assume that the Russian leaders would not hesitate to use military force again if it was to their advantage. Let’s assume that, yes, the Russians are up to no good and that they might well try to bite-off some other piece of land somewhere in Europe.

    Such an assumption would immediately raise a crucial question: why would the Russians want to do that?

Politico Caught Running CIA Propaganda About Assange

Never, Ever Forget The Guardian/Politico Psyop Against WikiLeaks

  • Never, Ever Forget The Guardian/Politico Psyop Against WikiLeaks
    by , https://caitlinjohnstone.com/
    For the first few hours after any new “bombshell” Russiagate story comes out, my social media notifications always light up with poorly written posts by liberal establishment loyalists saying things like “HAHAHA @caitoz this proves you wrong now will you FINALLY stop denying Russian collusion???” Then, when people start actually analyzing that story and noting that it comes nowhere remotely close to proving that Donald Trump colluded with the Russian government to steal the 2016 election, those same people always forget to come back afterward and admit to me that they were wrong again.

    This happens every single time, including this past Tuesday when the Guardian published a new “bombshell” report saying that former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort had had secret meetings with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. When experts all across the political spectrum began pointing out that the story contained no evidence for its nonsensical claims and was entirely anonymously sourced, nobody ever came back and said “Hey sorry for calling you a Russian propagandist, Caitlin; turns out that story wasn’t as fact-based as I’d thought!” When evidence for a single one of the article’s claims failed to turn up for a day, then two days, then three days, nobody came back and said “Gosh Caitlin, I owe you an apology for mocking you and calling you Assange’s bitch; turns out WikiLeaks and Manafort are suing that publication and its claims remain completely unproven.”

    And of course they didn’t. They weren’t meant to. They were meant to absorb the Guardian‘s false claims as fact, add it to their Gish gallop mountain of false evidence for Trump-Russia-WikiLeaks collusion, and then be shuffled onward by the relentless news churn of the corporate propaganda matrix like always. But I’m never going to let them forget that this happened, and neither should you.

Rick Sanchez: Israel, CNN, Hispanics & Sinclair

  • RT America Published on Dec 3, 2018
    CNN fired Temple Professor Marc Lamont Hill for saying “justice requires a free Palestine, from the river to the sea,” which critics deemed to be hate speech. However, anti-Hispanic rhetoric leading to protests and widespread condemnation never led to his firing, remaining at CNN until finally resigning on good terms. Most recently, when Sinclair Broadcasting Group forced stations around the country to air Boris Epshteyn’s anti-migrant punditry. What does this say about the state of news in America? Pedro Gonzalez, lecturer at Florida International University, shares his expertise, arguing that “ethics are being lost in the fight for money and ratings.”

Top Ecuadorian Diplomat Destroys Guardian’s Claim That Manafort Visited Assange

  • Top Ecuadorian Diplomat Destroys Guardian’s Claim That Manafort Visited Assange
    by Tyler Durden, https://www.zerohedge.com/
    A former consul and first secretary at the Ecuadorian embassy in London has put the final nail in the coffin of credibility for The Guardian, refuting the paper’s fantastical and wholly unsupported claim that former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort visited WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange in 2013, 2015 and the spring of 2016 – a charge vehemently denied by all parties involved. 

    Fidel Narváez – who worked at Ecuador’s London embassy from 2010 – 2018 has told The Canary that The Guardian‘s claim is entirely falseThe Canary has also reviewed a copy of correspondence between the Guardian and Narváez in which he makes a formal complaint accusing the paper of fabricating an earlier story about a Kremlin plot to smuggle Assange to Russia.

American Media Won’t Report One Key Detail About The French Riots: They’re About ‘Climate Change’ Policies

  • American Media Won’t Report One Key Detail About The French Riots: They’re About ‘Climate Change’ Policies
    by EMILY ZANOTTI, https://www.dailywire.com/
    Riots in France are raging into their fourth week, but American mainstream media outlets like CBS and CNN are having a tough time reporting on exactly why tens of thousands of French citizens are taking to the streets — perhaps because the protests are motivated by French President Emmanuel Macron’s burdensome “anti-Climate Change” policies.

    More than 400 people were arrested over the weekend — and more than 200 were injured — as French citizens, clad in the now ubiquitous yellow safety vests (which residents of France are required by law to keep in their vehicles for emergencies) marched down the Champs-Élysées, a tony shopping and restaurant district in central Paris, to protest their ever-increasing government tax burden.

    To be sure, Macron’s recent efforts to combat “climate change” and reduce France’s dependence on “fossil fuels” by levying a new tax on gasoline and other household fuels is not the only reason the French are protesting, but fuel tax is the “straw that broke the camel’s back.” French citizens were already hit with a tax increase in January, and more than 60% of the cost of fuel in France comes from government fees.

    But if you ask CNN or CBS, the French riots are simply shrouded in mystery. CBS simply ignored the taxes altogether.

    CNN spent hundreds of words dancing around the issue before arguing that France’s protesters were mistaken: the price of fuel in France went up because the price of oil has gone up globally. “Rising fuel prices are largely attributed to a leap in the wholesale price of oil worldwide,” CNN claimed.

    They went on to blame the riots on Macron’s inability to communicate his agenda effectively to the out-of-touch rubes living in France’s version of “flyover country:” “But the protests have evolved into a broader demonstration against Macron, his government, and tensions between the metropolitan elite and rural poor.”

    Weirdly, the protests span both the “metropolitan elite” — residents of Paris and France’s major cities — and the “rural poor.” Smaller protests have broken out across the French countryside, and demonstrators there are no less clear on why they’ve taken to the streets: Macron’s “anti-Climate Change” policies have created an unfair burden on French people across the financial spectrum.

After Cohen’s Plea Deal, There’s Still No Evidence of Russian Collusion

  • After Cohen’s Plea Deal, There’s Still No Evidence of Russian Collusion
    by BRIAN CATES, https://www.theepochtimes.com/
    In a surprise announcement, calculated to have maximum media impact just before President Donald Trump departed for Argentina to attend the annual G-20 summit, special counsel Robert Mueller and his team accepted a guilty plea in court from former Trump Organization lawyer Michael Cohen.

    On Nov. 29, the media was suddenly alerted that Cohen was in a New York courtroom entering a plea of guilty to perjury charges. In his plea agreement, Cohen admitted he lied in his congressional testimony under oath when asked about details surrounding the proposed construction of a Trump Tower in Moscow. Specifically, Cohen admitted he misled Congress on the duration of the proposed deal and how much Trump himself was involved in it.

    As evidence of Cohen’s perjury, Mueller submitted a series of emails between Cohen and Felix Sater, in which the two men discuss a real estate deal that never came to fruition. However, in the course of discussing the deal, a discussion that began in 2015, Sater began making overtures to Cohen once Trump announced his presidential run.

    Sater boasted of deep connections to Vladimir Putin and other top Russian officials, which he said he could leverage to help the Trump campaign win the 2016 election.

    The New York Times broke the story of the Cohen/Sater emails more than a year ago, with a story, titled “Trump Associate Boasted That Moscow Business Deal ‘Will Get Donald Elected,’” on Aug. 28, 2017.

    The Times story included a screenshot of an email that Sater sent to Cohen on Nov. 3, 2015, in which Sater said: Michael I arranged for Ivanka to sit in Putins [sic] private chair at his desk and office in the Kremlin. I will get Putin on this program and we will get Donald elected. We both know no one else knows how to pull this off without stupidity or greed getting in the way. I know how to play it and we will get this done. Buddy our boy can become President of the USA and we can engineer it. I will get all of Putins [sic] team to buy in on this.”

    After much of the mainstream media spent all of Nov. 29 crowing about the supposed “smoking gun” of Cohen’s perjury plea and the renewed interest in his email exchange with Sater, by the afternoon of Nov. 30, CNN’s Jake Tapper was one of the first to begin carefully examining the actual evidence and asking hard questions.

    In an interview on “The Lead,” Tapper surprised Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) by asking where the evidence of Russian collusion is.

    What Happened?
    Here’s what actually transpired in that courtroom, stripped of all the Democratic National Committee (DNC) media complex spin: Cohen admitted to Mueller he didn’t tell the truth in his congressional testimony about how long the deal was discussed and how much Trump knew about it and … that’s it.

  • SGTreport Published on Dec 2, 2018
    George H.W. Bush is dead at the age of 94 and the mainstream media mockingbirds spent all day Saturday singing the praises of this “great man” and 41st President of the United States. But it may surprise some to learn the truth about H.W. and the Bush family. This is the story the mainstream media refuses to share with Americans.

  • Jeb! and the Bush Crime Family: The Inside Story of an American Dynasty  Hardcover – February 16, 2016
    by Roger Stone (Author), Saint John Hunt (Author), & 1 more, http://www.amazon.com 
    Jeb and the Bush Crime Family is the book that smashes through the layers of lies and secrecy that has surrounded and protected our country’s very own political dynasty.

    New York Times
    bestselling author and legendary political insider, Roger Stone lashes out with a blistering indictment that exposes the true history and monumental hypocrisy of the Bushes. In his usual “go for the jugular” style, Stone collaborates with Saint John Hunt—author, musician, and son of legendary CIA operative E. Howard Hunt—to make this a “no-holds-barred” history of the Bush family.


    The authors reveal Jeb to be a smug, entitled autocrat who both uses and hides behind his famous name as he mingles with international drug peddlers. They show how Jeb:

    Received a $4 million taxpayer bailout when his daddy was Vice President
    Used his insider status to make millions from Obamacare
    Avoided criminal prosecution on a fraudulent Federal loan
    Hypocritically supports the War on Drugs, despite his own shocking drug history

    After detailing the vast litany of Jeb’s misdeeds, Stone travels back to Samuel, Prescott, George H. W., and George W. Bush to weave an epic story of privilege, greed, corruption, drug profiteering, assassination, and lies. Jeb and the Bush Crime Family will have you asking, “Why aren’t these people in prison?”
  • George HW Bush (aka ‘Magog’, Papa Bush, 41st president) is 1 of the 12 ie. Council of 13 (12 men and Satan at the witching hour).

    “Magog” of Skull and Bones
    Decades ago, as George Bush, Sr., lay naked in a coffin, inside the bowels of the Tomb, the macabre, mausoleum residence of the Order of Skull and Bones, located next to the old town cemetery in New Haven, Connecticut, his fellows performed a hellish death ritual and raised George from his sarcophagus. They gave him, as they do all initiates, a new name. Hence more, George Herbert Walker Bush would secretly be known by the Brotherhood as “Magog.”

    Now, on a mission for his infernal Lord Lucifer, comes President George W. Bush, son of the bonesman named “Magog,” to Jerusalem, Israel. There, the chief religious officials—including the High Priest of the reconvened Sanhedrin, the same devilish body that so long ago commanded that Jesus our Lord be tortured and crucified on a primitive wooden cross—recognized and honored Mr. Bush as Gog, of the land of Magog, Chief Prince of Meshech and Tubal (Ezekiel 38:1).

    Googlers discussed how they could prevent a repeat of Trump’s 2016 victory in the future, weighing the risks and benefits of various forms of censorship. “Let’s make sure that we reverse things in four years – demographics will be on our side,” read one post by engineer Scott Byer. “How many times did you see the Election now card with items from opinion blogs (Breitbart, Daily Caller) elevated next to legitimate news organizations? That’s something that can and should be fixed.”
