Heat Nazis Get Whacked By NASA

From Forbes via Yahoo! News:

New NASA Data Blow Gaping Hole In Global Warming Alarmism


NASA satellite data from the years 2000 through 2011 show the Earth's atmosphere is allowing far more heat to be released into space than alarmist computer models have predicted, reports a new study in the peer-reviewed science journal Remote Sensing. The study indicates far less future global warming will occur than United Nations computer models have predicted, and supports prior studies indicating increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide trap far less heat than alarmists have claimed.

Study co-author Dr. Roy Spencer, a principal research scientist at the University of Alabama in Huntsville and U.S. Science Team Leader for the Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer flying on NASA's Aqua satellite, reports that real-world data from NASA's Terra satellite contradict multiple assumptions fed into alarmist computer models.

"The satellite observations suggest there is much more energy lost to space during and after warming than the climate models show," Spencer said in a July 26 University of Alabama press release. "There is a huge discrepancy between the data and the forecasts that is especially big over the oceans."

In addition to finding that far less heat is being trapped than alarmist computer models have predicted, the NASA satellite data show the atmosphere begins shedding heat into space long before United Nations computer models predicted.

The new findings are extremely important and should dramatically alter the global warming debate.

Scientists on all sides of the global warming debate are in general agreement about how much heat is being directly trapped by human emissions of carbon dioxide (the answer is "not much"). However, the single most important issue in the global warming debate is whether carbon dioxide emissions will indirectly trap far more heat by causing large increases in atmospheric humidity and cirrus clouds. Alarmist computer models assume human carbon dioxide emissions indirectly cause substantial increases in atmospheric humidity and cirrus clouds (each of which are very effective at trapping heat), but real-world data have long shown that carbon dioxide emissions are not causing as much atmospheric humidity and cirrus clouds as the alarmist computer models have predicted.

The new NASA Terra satellite data are consistent with long-term NOAA and NASA data indicating atmospheric humidity and cirrus clouds are not increasing in the manner predicted by alarmist computer models. The Terra satellite data also support data collected by NASA's ERBS satellite showing far more longwave radiation (and thus, heat) escaped into space between 1985 and 1999 than alarmist computer models had predicted. Together, the NASA ERBS and Terra satellite data show that for 25 years and counting, carbon dioxide emissions have directly and indirectly trapped far less heat than alarmist computer models have predicted.

In short, the central premise of alarmist global warming theory is that carbon dioxide emissions should be directly and indirectly trapping a certain amount of heat in the earth's atmosphere and preventing it from escaping into space. Real-world measurements, however, show far less heat is being trapped in the earth's atmosphere than the alarmist computer models predict, and far more heat is escaping into space than the alarmist computer models predict.

When objective NASA satellite data, reported in a peer-reviewed scientific journal, show a "huge discrepancy" between alarmist climate models and real-world facts, climate scientists, the media and our elected officials would be wise to take notice. Whether or not they do so will tell us a great deal about how honest the purveyors of global warming alarmism truly are.

Of radical goat-rapism, desertion, child porn, conscientious objectors, and murdering innocent restaurant patrons...

Or, the Religion of Peace, Love, and Understanding [Sorry, Declan.] strikes again:

From the McClatchy Washington Bureau:

Fort Hood terror plot was thwarted by gun store's tip

KILLEEN, Texas — Pfc. Naser Jason Abdo carefully cultivated an image of a peace lover, both inside the Army and outside it.

An infantryman from Garland who enlisted in 2009, Abdo filed for conscientious-objector status last year shortly before his 101st Airborne Division unit deployed to Afghanistan, citing his Muslim faith as the reason he could not go to war.

He gave several interviews, including one to CNN in which he said he "started really asking myself whether God would accept what I was doing and whether I was really meant to go to war, as opposed to the peace that Islam preaches."

On Thursday night, Abdo, 21, was in custody, accused of plotting to kill by bullet and bomb fellow soldiers in a frightening reprise of the November 2009 massacre at Fort Hood.

The plot started to unravel Tuesday afternoon after a retired police officer who works at a gun store in Killeen became suspicious of a customer's purchases and his behavior, including that he was traveling in a taxi.

Abdo was arrested Wednesday at a Killeen motel, where authorities found firearms and "items that could be identified as bomb-making components, including gunpowder," FBI spokesman Erik Vasys said.

According to an Army alert obtained by The Associated Press, Abdo "was in possession of a large quantity of ammunition, weapons and a bomb inside a backpack," and upon questioning, he admitted planning an attack on Fort Hood.

Killeen Police Chief Dennis Baldwin said Abdo was close to pulling off a "terror plot" in which the target was troops based at Fort Hood, although there are indications that Abdo was eyeing an off-post location.

"We would probably be here today giving you a different briefing had he not been stopped," Baldwin said at a news conference Thursday afternoon.

The early investigation, led by the FBI, has led officials to believe that Abdo did not have accomplices, Baldwin said.

U.S. Rep. John Carter, R-Round Rock, who represents the area, said the suspect might have been targeting a restaurant.

"Speculation based on conversations I've had with law enforcement is that he was trying to find where Fort Hood soldiers gathered off-post," Carter said. "He was planning on one or two bombs and to finish everyone off with a handgun."


I could only find two articles that even mentioned the desertion enablers from "Courage To Resist" and Iraq Veterans Against the War -

From the Killeen Daily Herald:

AWOL Soldier Charged With Ft. Hood Terror Plot

AWOL soldier Pfc. Naser Jason Abdo, 21, remains in Killeen City Jail with federal charges pending in what has been described as a foiled terror plot aimed at military personnel.

Killeen police, along with the assistance of numerous local, state and federal law enforcement, arrested Abdo Wednesday after receiving a tip from a local gun shop employee. Abdo purchased several pounds of gunpowder that authorities believe he was using to create a bomb.

An Army alert email obtained by The Associated Press says Abdo "was in possession of a large quantity of ammunition, weapons and a bomb inside a backpack." While being questioned, the alert states, Abdo admitted to planning an attack on Fort Hood.

Police arrested Abdo on a warrant of possession of child pornography out of Fort Campbell, Ky. Abdo went AWOL from Fort Campbell on July 4, said U.S. Army spokesman Troy Rolan at the Pentagon.

At Fort Campbell, Abdo was assigned to Echo Company, 1st Brigade Combat Team (Rear Provisional), 101st Airborne Division. He entered service in March 2009 and is from Garland.

Killeen Police Department Chief Dennis Baldwin said Thursday that if not for the tip from Guns Galore clerk Greg Ebert, Abdo might have been able to carry out an attack. Besides purchasing the gunpowder Tuesday, Abdo also obtained shotgun shells and an extra magazine for a pistol from the store.

"I can probably tell you that we would be having a different briefing today if we hadn't arrested him," Baldwin said during a news conference.

Just after 2 p.m. Wednesday, authorities from KPD, Fort Hood and officials from federal, state and local law enforcement agencies raided a hotel room at the American Best Value Inn on South Fort Hood Street. Inside, officials seized materials they believe were to be used as components to create a bomb.

Baldwin declined to provide specifics but stated that it appeared as though Abdo had formulated a "terror plot" against "military personnel" as the intended target either on post or in Killeen.

FBI spokesman Erik Vasys said he anticipates federal bomb-making charges will be filed against Abdo. Once filed, U.S. Marshals will take Abdo into custody for an appearance before a federal magistrate in Waco.

Baldwin and Vasys would not comment on the nature of the bomb-making materials found or reports of jihadist literature in Abdo's possession because of the ongoing investigation.

Through past experiences with the Nov. 5, 2009, shooting at Fort Hood and the Luby's massacre in 1991, Baldwin said KPD was equipped to act fast.

"We're probably more familiar with this kind of environment than most communities, unfortunately," he said.

The conscientious objector

Abdo's filing for conscientious objector status was highlighted by several national media outlets in August 2010. He cited his Muslim faith as one reason he could not serve in Afghanistan. When he received orders for deployment, he protested and sought to be discharged from the Army.

According to Abdo's lawyer, James Branum, who represented the solider at Fort Campbell, discharge papers moved forward in May. Fort Campbell commanders initially denied Abdo's request, but Abdo won an appeal with Pentagon officials.

Just days after the successful appeal, discharge orders were placed on hold when the Army charged Abdo with possession of child pornography on May 13.

On June 15, an Article 32 investigation — hearings similar to a grand jury — confirmed charges against Abdo. He was on his way to being court-martialed at Fort Campbell when he went AWOL during the Fourth of July weekend, Rolan said.

However, Branum is not representing Abdo for any federal charges that might be filed in connection with Wednesday's arrest. "I haven't spoken to (Abdo) in quite awhile," he said.

A change in personality

Jeff Paterson, a project director with Courage to Resist, a nonprofit in Oakland, Calif., said the child pornography charges struck a blow to Abdo's mental state. Courage to Resist helped fund Abdo's legal defense in his conscientious objection.

Paterson said Abdo became "despondent" and "nihilistic." Abdo worried about what he would do with a child pornography charge on his record.

Paterson said he and Abdo clashed over the soldier's misogynistic attitudes that he based in Islam.

Clues of Abdo's troubling intentions showed up in Facebook posts, but Paterson said he thought they were just signs of depression regarding his impending court-martial.

"He was saying things like, 'I'm not going to be around very much longer. You're not going to hear from me. I don't know what's going to happen to me,'" Paterson said. Then, the updates stopped.

Abdo's Facebook page was taken down Thursday afternoon. A version accessed prior to its removal showed a conflict between his faith and his military service.

"Prayer and reflection have helped me to understand that I cannot be a soldier in the U.S. Army and continue to remain true to Islam as I now understand it," Abdo wrote on his Facebook profile.

Abdo approached Courage to Resist in August 2010. Paterson said Abdo's initial goal was to be a positive example of Muslims around the world. He sought to promote peace among the Islamic community.

"Unfortunately, he became an example of everything he wanted to be the opposite of," Paterson said.

A 'lone wolf'

A homeland security expert at Texas A&M University said Thursday Abdo's actions were eerily similar to some of the more devastating terrorist attacks across the nation and around the world.

Danny Davis, head of the homeland security certification program at the George Bush School of Government and Public Service at TAMU, said the actions reminded him of tactics first theorized during the heights of the Cold War that many terrorists have used in recent years.

KPD and FBI authorities said Thursday that Abdo acted alone.

Davis said Abdo acted as a "lone wolf," drawing similarities between Abdo and Maj. Nidal Hasan, who is charged with 13 counts of premeditated murder in connection to the Nov. 5, 2009, Fort Hood shooting.

"At some point he (Abdo) was radicalized and decided to take action against his country for his religion," Davis said.


From Politico:

Soldier arrested in Ft. Hood plot

An AWOL soldier who had refused to serve in Afghanistan because of his Muslim beliefs was arrested near Fort Hood, Texas, on Thursday, where he reportedly was planning to attack soldiers outside the base.

The soldier, Pfc. Naser J. Abdo, could face federal charges after authorities found bomb-making materials in his hotel room near Fort Hood. Abdo admitted plotting what would have been Fort Hood’s second terrorist attack in as many years, the Associated Press reported.

Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, an Army psychologist, has been charged with killing 13 people and wounding 30 in a November 2009 attack on soldiers preparing for deployment, and now faces the death penalty at an upcoming court-martial.

Like Abdo, Hasan was a Muslim, and investigations indicated he was motivated by extremist Islamist beliefs.

Abdo, who is of Palestinian origin, is from the Dallas suburb of Garland, Texas. He joined the Army in March 2009 and was assigned to the 101st Airborne Division at Fort Campbell, Ky., in July of that year.

He had been granted conscientious objector status after a public campaign against deployment in which he arguing that serving in war contradicted his Muslim beliefs. That status was put on hold in May after military authorities charged him with possessing child pornography, Army spokesman George Wright said. Abdo went absent without leave on July 4, after the charges against him were referred to a court-martial, Wright said.

In an interview with CNN in August, Abdo said he didn’t initially believe his faith would be an issue in his military service, but he became more concerned as the expected date of his deployment to Afghanistan approached.

In a statement read at an October news conference in New York organized by Iraq Veterans Against the War, Abdo said, “To a soldier, the association of terror and Islam serves the purpose of falsely justifying ones actions in combat by stripping Muslims of their humanity. … Only when the military and America can disassociate Muslims with terror can we move onto a brighter future of the religious collaboration and dialogue that defines America and makes me proud to be an American.”

Killeen, Texas, police spokeswoman Carol Smith said Abdo was arrested Wednesday on the outstanding child pornography warrant.

Police Chief Dennis Baldwin later told reporters that it appears Abdo had acted alone, though he added that federal authorities are investigating whether he had any co-conspirators. He also said police are classifying the plot as an attempted act of terror.

Baldwin said Abdo was being held in the local jail. He declined to comment on whether Abdo is cooperating with investigators.

When asked how close Abdo was to carrying out his attack, Baldwin demurred and said only that “we would probably be here today giving a different briefing had he not been found.”

Abdo came to the attention of authorities after he purchased smokeless gunpowder at a Killeen gun store, which raised red flags with employees who alerted the police, according to Fox News. Smokeless gunpowder can be used as a triggering substance in bombs.

When they raided Abdo’s hotel room, authorities found shotgun shells, gunpowder, 18 pounds of sugar, a pressure cooker and ammunition, CNN reported.

According to local media, Abdo had bought an Army uniform and Fort Hood patches at a nearby Army surplus store.

The gun store that raised the alert — Guns Galore — was the same one where Hasan allegedly purchased guns and ammunition for the shooting rampage he is accused of committing.

Definitely not a Book of the Day selection.

I'm only posting this because of Citizen Garrow's last paragraph. It illustrates how left-fascist racism reinforces self-destructive behavior and destroys lives. [Not to mention producing even more rabidly left-fascist children.]


From The Denver Post:


Book review: "The Other Barack" by Sally H. Jacobs

Reviewed by David J. Garrow of Washington's other newspaper

Barack Obama Sr. may have married four times, but the most important woman in his sadly troubled life was a middle-aged American literacy teacher, Elizabeth "Betty" Mooney, who hired the young Kenyan as her Nairobi secretary in 1958 and soon sponsored — and helped fund — his dream of attending college in the United States.

Sally Jacobs, a reporter for the Boston Globe, has far outstretched all previous journalists in unearthing an impressive array of new information about the senior Obama's life. "The Other Barack: The Bold and Reckless Life of President Obama's Father" (PublicAffairs) paints an even more dramatically downbeat portrait than did Obama's namesake son 16 years ago in "Dreams From My Father."

Indeed, it is such a painfully disheartening narrative that some interested readers — and certainly one in particular — should avoid Jacobs' tragic account.

When Obama flew to Hawaii in August 1959, he left behind a young Kenyan wife pregnant with their second child. In the fall of his second year of school, hardly six weeks had elapsed before one new classmate, 17-year-old Stanley Ann Dunham, became pregnant with their child.

The university's foreign-student adviser told U.S. immigration agents, who took an active interest in students whose visas required annual renewal, that she had cautioned the married Kenyan about his dating habits.

When Obama informed the adviser in April 1961 that he and Dunham had married two months earlier, he also claimed that he had divorced his Kenyan wife. The adviser told the immigration agency that she was dubious of that claim and that Obama also told her that "although they were married they do not live together and Miss Dunham is making arrangements with the Salvation Army to give the baby away."

That sentence is redacted in the copy of the senior Obama's immigration file viewable on the Web.

No other evidence suggests that Ann Dunham actually considered giving her firstborn child away. Within weeks of Barack Jr.'s birth, Dunham and the baby left Honolulu for her previous hometown, Seattle, leaving behind the husband with whom she had never lived.

Obama senior's admission to Harvard's Ph.D. program in economics attested to his academic success in Hawaii, but once again, his freewheeling personal life attracted official criticism.

A Unitarian minister complained to U.S. immigration officials that senior Obama was intimately involved with a young Kenyan woman attending a Boston area high school, and after two years, Harvard's international-student adviser told immigration agents that the university did not want Obama's visa to be extended for a third year.

Harvard's action — expressly motivated by animus toward his personal conduct, and with no academic rationale — forced the graduate student to return to Kenya with only a master's degree.

Within weeks of Obama's departure for Nairobi, his newest girlfriend, 27-year-old Ruth Baker, got on a plane to follow him. They married four months later, and the following year, Ruth met Obama's first wife, Kezia, in a Nairobi hospital after Obama Sr.'s drunken driving left a young friend dead and Obama with two broken legs.

Ruth Obama Ndesandjo is the book's most compelling and memorable source. "The Other Barack" narrates a series of increasingly violent, drunken assaults that culminated with the senior Obama putting a knife to her neck.

"I did not think he would really kill me. He was a bluffer," Ruth explained. Only when Obama struck one of their two young sons did she finally leave him.

Obama stumbled in and out of several midrank government jobs before killing himself in his umpteenth drunken car crash in November 1982. By then he was living with a fourth wife, or wife-to-be, a 20-year-old woman who had given birth to his youngest child six months earlier.

The great promise and energy that Betty Mooney had seen in him a quarter-century earlier was long spent. But had white antipathy toward his unrestrained personal life not shattered Obama's dream of a Harvard Ph.D., whiskey might not have derailed a brilliant alcoholic from a life of far greater length and achievement. [Emphasis mine. - F.G.]

Kiddies, stay far away from people who write sentences like that and people for whom those sentences make perfect sense.

What about the women who allowed the fool [Obama the Elder in this case] to treat them like inflatable sex toys? [I'm being charitable. I was going to type "treat them like Kleenexes".] How stupid and full of self-loathing were they?

Or was it as simple as "I'm going to show Mummy and Daddy by copulating with this Kenyan guy!"?

Either way, it is no surprise The Jug-Eared One turned out as vile and ignorant as he did. I hope I'm dead before he hand over the reins to his girls. Madame Defarge ain't got nothin' on them.

[Jeepers! I just realized how racist that reads. They probably didn't have Kleenexes in Kenya back in the day. They probably didn't even have generic store brand facial tissues. My humblest appy-polly-loggies. They allowed Obama pere to treat them like some random indigenous leaf.]

Ha! You're not laughing at my beater now, are you?

Supercars' million-dollar fender-bender

Nothing in Monte Carlo is understated, from the baubles to the yachts to the bank accounts. Now add traffic pile-ups to that list.

The Hope Diamond of fender benders unfolded yesterday in possibly the most conspicuous stretch of asphalt in the .75-square-mile principality — the round-about in front of the James Bond-worthy casino — when three blondes in a jelly-bean blue Bentley Azure ($363,000) scraped the rear of a white Mercedes-Benz S-Class (a paltry $91,000). And that was merely the appetizer.

Served up for the main course were a hapless black Ferrari F430 ($186,000), which was hit nose-first by the 2.7-ton Bentley. Then, like two tankers mashing in the fog, a four-door Aston Martin Rapide ($228,000) crunched into the Azure’s passenger door. The cherry on this metal, plastic and carbon-fiber shattering souffle: a stray Porsche 911 ($77,000).

In all, a Titanic mess in mere moments, involving nearly a million dollars of primo automotive machinery. How did this happen? A quick photo-based forensics of the scene based on knowledge of the Place du Casino offers many clues.

What’s evident is that these five vehicles did not all converge on each other in one massive supercar big bang. The Bentley clearly was at fault. Its nose is pointing straight at the casino’s entrance, an entrance where fine cars are routinely valet-parked diagonally. It seems that the Bentley’s driver thought she could sneak past the white Mercedes, then swerved right when she realized they were going to collide, which in turn clipped the Rapide coming up on her right. The Ferrari and the Porsche were collateral damage - parked directly in the Bentley’s now diverted path.

Any chance that the trio responsible for this mess — whose damage tally will easily hit six-figures — would get to scamper off anonymously after a quick chat with Monaco’s famously efficient and ever-present white-gloved police were dashed given both the coordinates of the crash and the time of year. If there ever was a season when this moneyed retreat is more crowded than Times Square on New Year’s Eve, it’s summer. Photos of the crowd, gleefully gawking and photographing the impromptu car show run amok, only go to show that when rich people do dumb things in a big way, the masses are more than happy to snicker.

Ohio high school football coaches plan to honor Jim Tressel first week of season

It seems crime does pay after all.

An Ohio high school football coach is trying to rally support for ousted Ohio State football coach Jim Tressel.

Jim McQuaide, coach at Solon (Ohio) High School, plans to have Ohio’s prep coaches sport a white shirt and tie the first game of next season as a gesture of solidarity for Tressel, according to USA Today.

Irrelevant Digression of the Day: Remember how Lewis on The Drew Carrie Show used to wear a Solon Wrestling t-shirt?

According to the paper, McQuaide’s proposal was unanimously adopted last week by the Ohio High School Football Coaches Association.

McQuaide had this to say about the plan:
"(Tressel’s) been a tremendous advocate for our coaches association and for high school football in our state. This is just to say thanks for what he did for us and our students for many years. It's not my place or our association's place to say if he was right or wrong for what he did at Ohio State. This is just looking at what he did for high school football in our state."

Tressel was forced to resign his post last month after email correspondence indicated he violated NCAA regulations by withholding information about a gifts-for-memorabilia scandal that involved several current and former Buckeyes players.

Ohio State promoted Luke Fickell to interim head football coach to replace Tressel, although Fickell said recently the interim tag had been removed. The school still is expected to conduct a coaching search following this season.

Michigan will host Fickell and the Buckeyes on Nov. 26.

It was revealed last week Tressel received an “unacceptable” rating on performance evaluations when it came to self-reporting possible NCAA violations.

Not all Ohio coaches are on board with the plan to honor Tressel.

St. Xavier High (Cincinnati) football coach Steve Specht, who has worn sweater vests on the sideline, said this to USA Today:

"He's as quality a human being as anyone I've met, but my only question is, what are we honoring here? We've had a lot of great coaches that have come through here, and we've never honored anybody by wearing a shirt and tie. It's not as if he passed away. He's done a lot for high school football in Ohio, but there have been a lot of coaches who have done a lot, and we didn't honor any of those guys."

He should have shaved that unibrow.

Murderer caught 32 years after escape

This combo made from photos provided by the Florida Department of Corrections and the U.S. Marshal's Service shows Frederick Barrett in 1979, left, and on Wednesday, July 27, 2011. Barrett, who escaped from a Florida prison in 1979 while serving a life sentence for murder, was arrested Wednesday outside the town of Montrose, Colo. (AP Photo)
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla (Reuters) - Authorities on Wednesday captured a man in Colorado who escaped nearly 32 years ago from the Florida prison where he was serving a life sentence for murder.

Frederick Barrett, 60, slipped away from the Union Correctional Institution in Raiford during a nighttime power outage on August 17, 1979.

U.S. Marshals Service officers, dressed as U.S. Forest Service firefighters, arrested Barrett early on Wednesday at his cabin in Montrose County, Colorado. He had been living in the remote, mountainous area under the name Neil Meltzer, Florida officials said.

A tattoo of a cross and dot on his right hand helped officers confirm they had the right man, said Steve Davenport, a special agent supervisor for the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.

Davenport said investigators had been looking for Barrett in earnest since 2009, when a new fugitive initiative in Florida set its sights on finding a dozen long-term prison escapees with violent histories.

"It's really, really difficult to track somebody who's been out 30 years," Davenport told Reuters. "The trail was cold."

But using public records and databases, investigators found evidence Barrett had traveled to Hawaii, California, Tennessee and Maryland since his escape and eventually appeared to settle in Colorado.

In addition to escape charges in Florida, Barrett now faces drug and gun charges in Colorado after marshals found a marijuana grow house and multiple firearms in his home, officials said.

Barrett was convicted of killing a traveling companion on the Florida Turnpike in February 1971.

According to officials, he choked Carl Ardolino from behind as Ardolino was driving. Barrett and another man then stopped the car, carried Ardolino to a shallow ditch filled with water and held his head underneath until he died.

Margaret Archer, Ardolino's niece, said her 26-year-old uncle had picked the men up at a rest stop as he drove from New Jersey to Florida for a vacation.

The deceased man's family members welcomed the news of Barrett's capture after so many years.

"Unbelievable," Archer said. "We were thrilled to say the least."

Less what?

From Fox News [Because the AmericaLast commiesymp media think it's a good thing for your government to steal your money and then waste it like this.]:

NIH Funds $2.6 Million Study to Get Prostitutes in China to Drink Less

The federal government is spending $2.6 million to make sure prostitutes in China drink less on the job.

That's the goal of a five-year study, bankrolled by the National Institutes of Health, designed to help lower HIV infections among China's "female sex workers," who are referred to in the study as "FSWs."

Researchers will visit 100 houses of ill repute -- a whole hamlet of harlots -- to collect data on 700 prostitutes and 150 pimps and madams, referred to as "gatekeepers" in the study's sterile abstract.

Phase one of the study is intended to research "alcohol use/abuse and related sexual risk among FSWs in China," according to the abstract -- a cold hard look at why prostitutes engage in dangerous sex while drunk.

The study's director says the information gained from the study will then be used to tailor HIV prevention programs for the bawds from Beihai, a coastal tourist town in Guangxi province, which has the third-highest HIV infection rate of China's 22 provinces.

The project comes thanks to a grant from the NIH's National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, which is also funding a $400,000 study of bars in Buenos Aires to find out why gay men engage in risky sexual behavior while drunk -- and just what can be done about it.

The first prong of the Chinese intervention program involves "gatekeeper training," which means teaching pimps and madams to enhance the culture of safe sex in their brothels.

The study's director, Dr. Xiaoming Li of Wayne State University in Michigan, then hopes to convince the prostitutes to drink less and use condoms more while they're on the job.

The U.N. estimates that about 700,000 people are infected with HIV in China, mostly transmitted through unprotected sex. Recent government programs to distribute condoms to prostitutes have helped address the problem, but they haven't solved it.

The study -- tailored specifically for use in China -- was approved in November, and the government has already spent $469,903 to fund it.

"The proposed intervention program will be a cultural adaptation and integration of existing evidence-based programs in Asian settings," reads the study's abstract, which singles out China as a special challenge because of unique cultural circumstances (and 10 million working prostitutes) there.

Dr. Li, who did not respond to calls and e-mails from FOXNews.com seeking comment, told CNS News that because prostitution occurs with alcohol use in the United States, just as it does in China, Americans will be able to benefit from the project's findings.

"We want to get some understanding of the fundamental role of alcohol use and HIV risk," he said. "We use the population in China as our targeted population to look at the basic issues. I think the findings will benefit the American people, too."

Imagine how sick and perverse the things Okhrana keeps secret must be...

Judge dismisses suit on federal stem cell research

WASHINGTON (AP) — A lawsuit that had threatened to end the Obama administration's funding of embryonic stem cell research was dismissed Wednesday, allowing the U.S. to continue supporting a search for cures to deadly diseases over protests that the work relies on destroyed human embryos.

The lawsuit claimed that research funded by the National Institutes of Health violated the 1996 Dickey-Wicker law that prohibits taxpayer financing for work that harms an embryo. But the administration policy allows research on embryos that were culled long ago through private funding.

U.S. District Judge Royce Lamberth, chief of the federal court in Washington, last year said the lawsuit was likely to succeed and ordered a stop to the research while the case continued. But under swift protest from the Obama administration, the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals here quickly overturned Lamberth's injunction and said the case was likely to fail.

Lamberth said in his opinion Wednesday that he is bound by the higher court's analysis and ruled in favor of the administration's motion to dismiss the case.

"This Court, following the D.C. Circuit's reasoning and conclusions, must find that defendants reasonably interpreted the Dickey-Wicker Amendment to permit funding for human embryonic stem cell research because such research is not 'research in which a human embryo or embryos are destroyed,' " Lamberth wrote.

Researchers hope one day to use embryonic stem cells in ways that cure spinal cord injuries, Parkinson's disease and other ailments. Opponents of the research object because the cells were obtained from destroyed human embryos. Though current research is using cells culled long ago, opponents also fear research success would spur destruction of new embryos. Proponents say the research cells come mostly from extra embryos discarded anyway by fertility clinics.

President George W. Bush also permitted stem cell research, but limited the availability of taxpayer funds to embryonic stem cell lines that were already in existence and "where the life and death decision has already been made." Obama's order removed that limitation, allowing projects that involve stem cells from already-destroyed embryos or embryos to be destroyed in the future. To qualify, parents who donate the original embryo must be told of other options, such as donating to another infertile woman.

The Obama administration's rules expanded the number of stem cell lines created with private money that federally funded scientists could research, up from the 21 that Bush had allowed, to around 100 so far.

The lawsuit was filed in 2009 by two scientists who argued that Obama's expansion jeopardized their ability to win government funding for research using adult stem cells — ones that have already matured to create specific types of tissues — because it will mean extra competition.

For instance, he pretended he was a Reaganite because Reagan raised the debt limit eighteen times in his eight years in office. That's once every five and a third months. [Benito, here's the math you obviously can't do: 12 months x 8 years = 96 months. 96 / 18 increases = 5.3333333 months between increases.

So why would this Reagan fan want to raise the debt limit high enough to last seventeen months? So he can avoid looking like a world historical thief until after the 2012 election. Way to put your power madness ahead of the country, you lyin'-ass bitch.

Anders Behring Breivik appears to have a great idea for Dan Brown's next dumbass opus.

From Anorak:

Anders Behring Breivik’s Gay Knights Templar 2083: Hunting The Serbian Warlord In Liberia


ANDERS Behring Breivik has confessed to murdering 92 people in Norway. He says he acted alone.

I hear the maximum sentence available to the Norwegian authorities is only 21 years. Let's hope that is 21 years for every murder.

They say he’s a fundamentalist Christian – but we ["can't"? -F.G.] find details of his being member of any church. Indeed, the impression is of a man obsessed with Crusader fetishism.

Breivik liked to dress up. He lived with his mum. We have yet to find an old flame. Breivik’s sexuality remains an untapped theory.

Uh-oh. If he turns out to be a non-Euclidean sex enthusiast, this story will disappear in an instant.

Over in the Sunday Express, theories are wonderful:

Finnish psychologist, Dr Rauni-Leena Luukanen-Kilde, who has lived in Norway for 20 years, believes Breivik is unlikely to have been a lone wolf. She said: “An attack of this magnitude would have taken such a degree of planning it would have been virtually impossible for one person to pull off.

Anorak calls this the element of surprise. In his 1,500-page dossier, Breivik notes that “there are situations where cruelty is necessary’ and that it is better to kill too many than not enough“.

The fewer people you tell, the smaller the chances of them ratting you out. Doesn't sound too crazy to me.

He also recorded a 12-minute video, called Knights Templar 2083 ,in which he dressed up in a wetsuit and held a machine gun. He see himself as Justicia Knight. You might see him a man with a festish for the showy.

In his massive dossier he notes:

“The first drop of rain marks the coming of a great and unstoppable cultural conservative tidal wave. The tidal wave will cleanse Western Europe of cultural Marxism and will result in the banishment of Islam for the third time.

“The European tree of liberty will be refreshed by the blood of our patriots and of the Marxist tyrrants. This civil war will last several decades but we will succeed.”

The bloody tree is a take on Thomas Jefferson’s quote:

clear Anders Behring Breiviks Gay Knights Templar 2083: Hunting The Serbian Warlord In Liberia “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.”

Jefferson was againt British Rule in the American colonies. He was anti-European.

Hmmm...Jefferson was a radical and a traitor in his day. My, how times have changed.

Back in the Express, speculation is rife:

“He seems to have been almost brainwashed by either a person or by an ideal.

“That is the only way, I believe, he was able to massacre so many people, including children, in cold blood.”

The Skeptic’s Dictionary says oi Luukanen-Kilde’s mind control theories:

Kilde claims there are secret military and intelligence agencies who have been using mind control technology on people around the world for almost half a century. Some have had microchips implanted in their bodies. The goal is control of our bodies and minds, including our dreams and subconscious minds.

…Until recently, she called these mind-control plots the “biggest crime in the history of mankind.” She seems to have changed her mind (or was it changed for her?). Now, she says, the biggest crime of all time is Big Pharma’s attempt to kill most of the Earth’s population with the swine flu vaccine.

Meanwhile, over in planet Earth, Breivik recalls a trip to London:

I came in contact with Serbian cultural conservatives through the internet. This initial contact would eventually result in my contact with several key individuals all over Europe and the forming of the group who would later establish the military order and tribunal, PCCTS, Knights Templar… According to one of them, they were considering several hundred individuals throughout Europe for a training course. I met with them for the first time in London and later on two occasions in Balticum. I had the privilege of meeting one of the greatest living war heroes of Europe at the time, a Serbian crusader and war hero who had killed many Muslims in battle. Due to EU persecution for alleged crimes against Muslims he was living at one point in Liberia. I visited him in Monrovia once, just before the founding session in London, 2002.

I was the youngest one there, 23 years old at the time… There were only 5 people in London re-founding the order and tribunal (1 by proxy) but there were around 25-30 attending in Balticum during the two sessions, individuals from all over Europe; Germany, France, Sweden, the UK, Denmark, Balticum, Benelux, Spain, Italy, Greece, Hungary, Austria, Armenia, Lebanon and Russia. Electronic or telephonic communication was completely prohibited, before, during and after the meetings. On our last meeting it was emphasised clearly that we cut off contact indefinitely.

…This was not a stereotypical “right wing” meeting full of underprivileged racist skinheads with a short temper, but quite the opposite. Most of them were successful entrepreneurs, business or political leaders, some with families, most of them Christian conservatives but also some agnostics and even atheists… I was asked, not only once but twice, by my mentor; let’s call him Richard, to write a second edition of his compendium about the new European Knighthood….

Earlier, he writes that:

Pauperes commilitones Christi Templique Solomonici – PCCTS (the Poor Fellow-Soldiers of Christ and of the Temple of Solomon), the Knights Templar was re-founded in London in 2002 by representatives from eight European countries… The founding session (two meetings consisting of 4 founding members and host as a security precaution) was held in London, United Kingdom – Apr, 2002.

Founding (re-founding) members:
Anonymous 1 – Nationality: English Protestant (Host)
Anonymous 2 – Nationality: English Christian atheist
Anonymous 3 – Nationality: French Catholic
Anonymous 4 – Nationality: German Christian atheist
Anonymous 5 – Nationality: Dutch Christian agnostic
Anonymous 6 – Nationality: Greek Orthodox
Anonymous 7 – Nationality: Russian Christian atheist
Anonymous 8 – Nationality: Norwegian Protestant (member and proxy for 9)
Anonymous 9 – Nationality: Serbian Orthodox (by proxy, location: Monrovia, Liberia)

Unable to attend:

Anonymous 10 – Nationality: Swedish
Anonymous 11 – Nationality: Belgian
Anonymous 12 – Nationality: European-American

As Richard Bartholomew notes: “Presumably a Serbian war criminal wandering around Liberia would have drawn some attention.”

Especially if he’s dressed in a red suit of armour…


MEDIA THANKFUL MASS KILLER TURNED OUT TO BE CHRISTIAN AND A NORWEGIAN TEA PARTY MEMBER.

Yes, kiddies, let's all rejoice in the news he's not a non-moderate mohammedan. [The second paragraph of the first story about the massacre identified the gunman as "blonde haired and blue eyed".] Imagine what contortions would be necessary to explain that one away.

Norway massacre likely to ramp up monitoring of right-wing groups

Norway massacre: Right-wing parties have distanced themselves from Anders Behring Breivik's violent methods, whose attacks killed 76 people. But many share his basic views on immigration and minorities.

BTW, where did that "christian" label originate anyway?

Mosques boost security in wake of Norway massacre
Some British mosques are boosting security after Norway's horrific massacre was traced to a man who fears Muslims are taking over Europe — an attack that exposed a failure to root out Islamophobia that has bled into the European mainstream.

Norway still reeling from massacre
MARK COLVIN: It's hard to imagine the national shock and grief in Norway after the events of this weekend. The country has a population of 4.8 million so in per capita terms the massacre of 93 people or more is far greater than that of America's 9/11.

Here is a sample rant of the media's latest superstar:



"The only grownup in the room" gets sent to the corner for a timeout.

Congress finally remembers its constitutional responsibilities.

From The Atlantic:

Boehner and Reid Will Push Competing Debt Plans

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) will lay out details of his new plan to raise the debt ceiling past November 2012 and cut the deficit by $2.7 trillion at a 2:30 p.m. news conference, his office announced on Monday.

Reid may start floor action on the bill later in the day, an aide said.

That will put the House and Senate in a faceoff, on dueling courses, with just eight days to go to raise the debt ceiling by the August 2 deadline set by the Treasury Department. Senate Democrats have a 6 p.m. caucus meeting scheduled to discuss their options.

At the same time, House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, is briefing his conference at 2 p.m. on his plan for a two-part process to raise the borrowing limit and cut spending. The first phase would include about $1 trillion in cuts, with the ceiling raised through January 2012. According to a GOP source familiar with the framework, Congress would then have to pass deficit cuts recommended by a joint congressional committee before a second debt-ceiling increase could be approved.

Republican leadership aides claimed that Reid had signed off on that general framework on Sunday, before President Obama rejected it at a White House meeting later that night. Reid spokesman Adam Jentleson said that contention was "unequivocally and completely false." The Senate majority leader's aides said the sticking point remained the second debt-ceiling increase. Democrats were willing to accept a framework raising the debt limit in two steps, but only if the second step could occur even if a second round of spending cuts did not become law. Republicans refused that offer, the aides said.

With the House refusing to consider Reid's new plan and set to vote this week on Boehner's, Republicans hope to box in Reid and Obama. Senate Democrats have the votes to block Boehner's plan. But with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) backing the speaker's bill, Democrats may lack votes to amend it and send it back to the House. GOP aides argue that might force the Senate to accept the plan and present Obama with the prospect of vetoing it and risking default. Democrats insist they will not allow that scenario to occur.

First of all, the word is SEX, not GENDER. If you are ever tempted to use the word GENDER, don't. The word is SEX! SEX! SEX! SEX! For example: "My sex is male." is correct. "My gender is male." means nothing. Look it up. What kind of sick neo-Puritan nonsense is this? Idiot left-fascists, get your blood-soaked paws off the English language. Hence I am choosing "male" under protest.
