China & Russia’s F-you to Obama

Obama knock-knock joke

Sangwon Yoon reports for Bloomberg, Sept. 25, 2015, that after Chinese President Xi Jinping left the White House’s state dinner (the one where “Michael” Obama displayed “his” massive trapezius muscles), he headed to New York to check in at the Chinese-owned Waldorf Astoria, just a few blocks from the UN campus.

On Sunday, Xi was joined by Russia President Vladimir Putin, who also picked the Waldorf for his first stay in Manhattan in a decade.

In 2014, the Hilton Worldwide Holdings Inc. sold the Waldorf Astoria to Beijing-based Anbang Insurance Group Ltd. for $1.95 billion.

The symbolism of two such high-profile figures, whose countries routinely vote in tandem at the UN Security Council, choosing a Chinese-owned hotel cannot be lost on the White House.

But then Obama is no better.

As the Bloomberg report puts it, “after a decades-long tradition of staying at the storied hotel built on a former cemetery,” Barack Obama and his entourage relocated to South Korean-owned Lotte New York Palace Hotel for UNGA week.

Obama gives America the finger

For now, the 42nd floor of Waldorf Towers still serves as the official residence for the U.S. ambassador to the UN. While the Hilton will manage the property for the next century under the terms of its sale, Anbang’s ownership and call for a major renovation raised concerns about whether the Waldorf would remain a secure location for sensitive and classified government conversations, according to two U.S. officials, who asked not to be named citing sensitivity of the matter.

Third World countries want more than $100B a year in “climate change” reparations


This is insanity.

USA Today reports, Sept. 12, 2015, that preparatory talks ahead of the UN Conference on Climate Change to be held in Paris in December has representatives from developing nations asking for more than an already agreed upon $100 billion per year for climate change mitigation measures

Third World countries claim that they’re suffering from extreme weather disasters caused by “climate change” — what the greens used to call “global warming” — and they want rich countries like the United States to pay to relocate their populations to safer terrains (climate change refugees) and as reparations for their failure to follow through on aid pledges after weather disasters.

An example of the latter was Cyclone Pam’s devastation of islands in the South Pacific last March. But attention quickly turned to the massive earthquake in Nepal soon thereafter, which left small countries such as the island nation of Vanuatu to manage its own cleanup without much in the way of international assistance.

The poorer countries blame extreme weather-­related disasters on climate change stemming from emission­ polluting countries that have more developed and wealthier economies.

The “gimme” countries want all this to be legally binding as part of the anticipated Paris accord. But the U.S. and the EU are balking.

The U.N. Paris conference aims to reach an international, legally biding agreement on climate change that would reduce greenhouse gas emissions and thwart global temperature rise. A separate agreement will address losses and damages from extreme weather events.

As it stands, the Warsaw Mechanism, adopted in 2013 at the U.N. climate conference in Poland, established a structure to address losses and damages associated with climate change. However that mechanism is due to expire this year when a new climate agreement is reached. Reports indicate a compromise will be sought whereby the Warsaw Mechanism is extended, yet carved out from any legally binding agreement.

Meanwhile, environmental groups are lobbying to make reparations even more punitive by requiring polluting companies in the private sector to pay for extreme weather­-related damages.

Property and casualty losses have been a point of contention for years in climate­ change discussions. How to handle refugee claims is a relatively new issue that comes at a time when Europe is facing a separate refugee crisis of its own, with hordes of people from war­torn countries in the Middle East and North Africa seeking asylum in Europe. Nine civil wars are raging in countries from Pakistan to Nigeria.

Pot calls kettle black: Pope Francis chastises pastors for talking too much

Ever since Argentinian archbishop Jorge Bergoglio was elected by the Papal Enclave to be head of the Catholic Church 2 years 3 months ago, the new Pope Francis hasn’t stopped talking and talking and talking . . . about not just church doctrine, but everything under and not under the sun.

Those talks pour out as a random stream of consciousness or verbal diarrhea, seemingly without much forethought or planning, including:

  • Contradictions, such as while affirming the church’s long-held stance that homosexual behavior is a disorder, Pope Francis nevertheless demurred with false humility, saying “Who am I to judge them,” as if Jesus means us not to discern between right and wrong, moral and immoral, good and evil. At the same time, Francis regularly “judges” all kinds of people, as you’ll see in the examples to follow.
  • Being rude and insulting: About a woman who was pregnant again after having seven children, all delivered by Caesarean section, Francis derided the idea that “in order to be good Catholics we have to be [breed] like rabbits” and produce litters of kids.
  • Endorsing tyranny by calling for a new supra-national global authority to combat climate change.
  • Being hypocritical, calling gunmakers false Christians while the Vatican’s own Swiss Guards and Pontifical Gendarmerie are armed with state-of-the-art firearms.
  • Being communist by endorsing a redistribution of wealth by the state in his 2015 speech to the United Nations.

Here’s the latest of Pope Francis’ “judging” and hypocrisy.

Pope Francis

On Thursday, June 25, 2015, at Santa Marta in the Vatican, this pope who has a penchant to talk way too much without forethought or discretion delivered another long rambling homily in which he admonished pastors for talking too much and called them “pseudo Christians” and “pseudo pastors.”

Here are the talkative pope’s words (source: Vatican Radio):

“When Jesus warns people to beware of ‘false prophets’, he says: ‘By their fruits ye shall know them’. And here, by their attitude: so many words, they speak, they do wonders, do great things but they do not have an open heart to hear the Word of God; they are afraid of the silence of the word of God and these are the ‘pseudo Christians’, the ‘pseudo pastors ‘. It’s true, they do good things, it is true, but they lack the rock. ”

What such people are lacking, the Pope continued, is “the rock of the love of God, the rock of the Word of God.” And without this rock, he warned, “they can’t preach, they cannot build: they pretend [and] in the end everything collapses.”

These are the  “pseudo pastors,” the “worldly pastors…or Christians also, who talk too much,” the Pope added.  “They are afraid of silence;  maybe they do too much.” And, the Pope insisted,  they are not capable of embracing what they’ve heard – [they like the sound of their own voices] – and this does not come from God.”

Highlighting the words, “doing, listening, speaking,” the Pope said, “one who only speaks and does, is not a true prophet, not a true Christian, and in the end everything will collapse: it is not on the rock of God’s love – [it] is not as firm as a rock. One who knows how to listen and [takes action on what he’s heard] , with the strength of the word of another, not his own:  that is balance. Even though he is a humble person, that does not seem important – but how many of these great ones are there in the Church! How many great bishops,  how many great priests, how many great faithful who listen and do from listening!”

Please, God.

Please save us from this pope who is puffed up with false humility, who lacks critical self-reflection, unable to see himself in those whom he chastises and derides.


UK Telegraph: Pope Francis is delusional about climate change

The Telegraph is the online version of the award-winning UK newspaper The Daily Telegraph, founded in 1855.

In an op/ed on June 20, 2015, Telegraph columnist Christopher Booker calls Pope Francis’ encyclical on climate change symptomatic of the pope living “in a sad world of make-believe.”

In the encyclical, Francis asserts that climate change — the new PC term for global warming — is primarily man-made and a threat to the world, and calls for a “new” supranational “global authority” to combat climate change and redistribute wealth to the poorer countries. Obama has praised the encyclical.


Booker writes:

…the last desperate throw by the EU and the US to achieve a world agreement next December to “halt climate change” is not going to succeed, not just because the “science” on which it is based is so increasingly questionable, but because the emerging powers of the East, led by India and China, are simply not prepared to go along with it. If the West wishes to commit economic suicide, so be it. In their [the East’s] own national interest, they are not willing to follow.

In fact, what we are seeing here is a geopolitical shift of huge proportions.So lost is the West in its bubbles of self-deceiving fantasy that the hegemony it so long exercised over the rest of the world is passing to the world outside it, to India and China, even, in its own way, to Russia….

How forlorn in light of all this looks that would-be well-meaning 300-page document in which the Pope, under the spell of his chief scientific adviser, a fanatical German climate activist called Hans Joachim Schellnhuber, calls for an end to use of the very fossil fuels which keep the Vatican’s own lights on. In asking us to pray for that global climate treaty, Pope Francis solemnly trots out all those familiar plaints about “melting polar ice caps”, “rising sea levels”, unprecedented droughts, “extreme weather events” and the rest of that greenie litany which has no basis in honest science whatever.

Hans Joachim Schellnhuber

Meanwhile, the pope is so hellbent on man-made climate change global warming that a skeptic was disinvited from a climate change summit at the Vatican.

As reported by The Washington Post on June 20, 2015, Frenchman Philippe de Larminat, who authored a book arguing that solar activity — not greenhouse gases — was driving global warming, had sought a spot at a climate summit in April sponsored by the Vatican’s Pontifical Academy of Sciences. Nobel laureates would be there. So would U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, U.S. economist Jeffrey Sachs and others calling for dramatic steps to curb carbon emissions.


After securing a high-level meeting at the Vatican, de Larminat was told that, space permitting, he could join. He bought a plane ticket from Paris to Rome. But five days before the April 28 summit, de Larminat said he received an e-mail saying there was no space left. It came after other scientists — as well as the powerful Vatican bureaucrat in charge of the academy — insisted he had no business being there. “They did not want to hear an off note,” de Larminat said.

The scientific method is about empiricism: all truth claims depend on the testimony of factual, real-world evidence. If Pope Francis and man-made climate change proponents really believe they have science on their side, they would be confident, instead of take the cowardly road by silencing dissenters via ostracism.

Editor of The Economist explains meaning of 2015 cover illustration

Please read Dr. Eowyn’s article on the same subject: 
Rothschild-owned The Economist’s 2015 cover full of unsettling symbols

economist_magazine_jan2015The following is excerpted from a article attempting to find some clarity on the very strange cover art. I did a search for the name of the illustrator of the cover art, and was very surprised to read there was no illustrator. The cover, they say, was created by a committee. This would explain the shameless borrowing of the Beatles album cover theme.

I have removed the theories expressed on, and show only the explanation given by The Economist’s editor. 

So here is The Economist’s explanation of the cover. ~TD 

Controversial Economist 2015 Cover Illustration Explained!

By Salli LaBelle Platt and Jacqui Deevoy

There’s been much controversy over the meaning of The Economist’s new year cover. YourNewsWire speaks to Editor Daniel Franklin about what those images actually mean…



Daniel Franklin, Editor of The Economist says: “The black & white versus the colour faces was a decision based purely on the strength of the design. There is no differentiation with the people featured in colour or not – it’s merely a way of representing a bunch of relevant folk in order that this be a stronger front cover.”



Daniel Franklin says: “Represents the rise of Nationalism and how it may be a world of conflict with regard to agreements. Many nations involved, some places angry, unsettled, others less so. The two faces of the moon disagreeing with itself as depicted on different sides. The article it refers to is called ‘Nationalism is Back’ and can be found in the International Section.”



Daniel Franklin says: “The drone is relevant to the US Section, where there is an article on the Fed Aviation Society who are set to announce the rules this Autumn on the regulations on Drone use in America. (To be found in the US Section).”


rocketDaniel Franklin says: “’New Horizons’ space probe which will be flying by Pluto in 2015 (the article on this is on page 137 of the UK edition of the magazine). However, at the last minute, after the cover had gone to press, they decided to use an illustration for that story showing the distance New Horizons had travelled to Pluto, which is why you won’t find the picture inside the magazine.”



Daniel Franklin says: “The mushroom cloud relates to the story on the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty yearly review conference, set to take place in New York – article to be found in the ‘International’ Section.”



Daniel Franklin says: “The piggy bank flying from David Cameron’s chest
 relates to the article on how small banks should do well this year.”



Daniel Franklin says: “This iIllustration relates to the article on Hollywood 2015. ‘Lights, Camera, Fraction’, focusing on the downward spiral of wages and superhero movies being very popular whilst implying it’s less important as to who is behind the mask – i.e. a cheaper actor/actress would be used as opposed to the Celebrity A class. (Page 124, UK version).”



Daniel Franklin says: “The New Abu Dhabi LOUVRE Museum set to open this year. Apparently, the painting in the cover illustration may be one of the debut masterpieces loaned for the opening exhibition of this venue. (See feature in the Books & Arts section.)




Daniel Franklin says: “It’s the 150th Anniversary of Alice in Wonderland. No particular reason for this part of the story to be depicted other than it is recognisable as such. The pile of dirt is actually a pile of sand and relates to the article on Abu Dhabi museum.” (See above.)



Daniel Franklin says: “The arrows are taken from the graphic illustrating the story of China’s economy “The numbers to watch” and are Chinese ‘targets’. As it happens, the numbers on the graphic were adjusted in the fact-checking process after the cover went to press.”



Daniel Franklin says: “We featured a white cricket ball because cricket world cup played with a white ball. There is the rugby world cup and the women’s football world cup all this year.”



Daniel Franklin says: “This is all about predictive programming on your mobile/handheld devices. The phone could tell you when you are on holiday and support your lifestyle ~ helpful but at the same time arguably a little creepy, hence the ghoul image use.”



Daniel Franklin says: “Lonesome George” the famous turtle who died in 2012 is to be returned to the Galápagos Islands this year. The story on this appear in the ‘Events’ section.



Daniel Franklin says: “Japan’s biggest battery for storage has been produced – for excessive solar and wind power. (There’s an article on this in the ‘Asia’ section).”



Daniel Franklin says: “Represents Chinese Politics – ever more muscle.”



Daniel Franklin says: “The illustration of the Pied Piper depicts the story where the rats are being eradicated from the Island of St Georgia. 20th Century Whalers set up bases on the Island and escaped rats caused chaos to it’s ecosystem. (‘Science’ section).”



Daniel Franklin says: “This part of the illustration relates to the drone illustration with regards to the FSA. Both the little boy with the plane and the helicopter are from the illustration that accompanies the piece on drones (on page 60 of the magazine).”



Daniel Franklin says: “Where might you find the financial crisis? EURO – FED RESERVE & CHINA. (Finance Section).”



Daniel Franklin says: “There’s an article in the Chinese Section that reports on the growing fussiness of Chinese consumers. This image illustrates that article.”



Daniel Franklin says: “This illustrates an article on pollution that relates to the Paris, December meeting.



Daniel Franklin says: “This illustrates an article that reports on the ceasing of production with the LandRover Defender.”

“Media Giant” Glenn Beck serves up the Fear-Du-Jour

Get it while it’s hot!

Is anyone else out there fed up with the endless fear mongering?

  • The top lines were in my email.
  • The next lines were the headline on the home page.
  • The rest was on the article page.

Every day my email is full of this crap.

“Well I’m mad as hell! And I’m not going to take it anymore!”

Psalm 91

He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.”

Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler And from the perilous pestilence.

He shall cover you with His feathers, And under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler.

You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, Nor of the arrow that flies by day,
Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.

A thousand may fall at your side, And ten thousand at your right hand; But it shall not come near you.

Only with your eyes shall you look, And see the reward of the wicked.
Because you have made the LORD, who is my refuge, Even the Most High, your dwelling place,

No evil shall befall you, Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling;
For He shall give His angels charge over you, To keep you in all your ways.
In their hands they shall bear you up, Lest you dash your foot against a stone.
You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra, The young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot.

“Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name.

He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him.

With long life I will satisfy him,
And show him My salvation.”
