Preface: The following papers support skeptic arguments against Anthropogenic Climate Change (ACC), Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) or Alarmism [Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming (CAGW) or Dangerous Anthropogenic Global Warming (DAGW)].

Alarmism: (defined), "concern relating to a perceived negative environmental or socio-economic effect of ACC/AGW, usually exaggerated as catastrophic."

Disclaimer: Even though the most prolific authors on the list are skeptics, the inclusion of a paper in this list does not imply a specific personal position to any of the authors. While certain authors on the list cannot be labeled skeptics (e.g. Harold Brooks, Roger Pielke Jr., Roger Pielke Sr.) their paper(s) or results from their paper(s) can still support skeptic's arguments against Alarmism. Various papers are mutually exclusive and should be considered independently. This list will be updated and corrected as necessary.

This is a resource for skeptics not a list of skeptics.

Counting Method: Only peer-reviewed papers are counted. Supplemental papers are not counted but listed as references in defense of various papers, these are italicized and proceeded by an asterisk ( * ) so they are not confused with the counted papers.

Supplemental papers include (but are not limited to): Addendums, Comments, Corrections, Discussions, Erratum, Rebuttals, Rejoinders, Replies, Responses, Supplemental Material, Updates and Submitted papers.

This is a dynamic list that is routinely updated. When a significant new number of peer-reviewed papers is added the list title will be updated with the new larger number. The list intentionally includes an additional 10+ peer-reviewed papers as a margin of error at all times, which gradually increases between updates. Thus the actual number of peer-reviewed papers on the list can be much greater than stated.

Criteria for Inclusion: All counted papers must be peer-reviewed, published in a peer-reviewed journal and support a skeptic argument against ACC/AGW or Alarmism. This means they are either written by a skeptic, explicit to a skeptical position, or were already cited by and determined to be in support of a skeptic argument by highly credentialed scientists, such as Sherwood B. Idso Ph.D. Research Scientist Emeritus, U.S. Water Conservation Laboratory and Patrick J. Michaels Ph.D. Climatology.

Criteria for Removal: Papers will only be removed if it is determined by the editor that they have not properly met the criteria for inclusion or have been retracted by the journal. Just like other popular scientific bibliographic resources (e.g. Scopus, Web of Science), no paper will be removed because of the existence of a criticism or published correction. Any known published correction will be included on the list following the original paper to show that these did not affect the author's original conclusions.

Formatting: All papers are cited as: "Paper Name, Journal Name, Volume, Issue or Number, Pages, Date and Authors". All Supplemental papers are preceded by an asterisk and italicized; Addendums, Comments, Corrections, Erratum, Replies, Responses and Submitted papers. Ordering of the papers is chronological per category.

Purpose: To provide a resource for peer-reviewed papers that support skeptic arguments against ACC/AGW or Alarmism and to prove that these papers exist contrary to claims otherwise;

"You realize that there are something like two or three thousand studies all of which concur which have been peer reviewed, and not one of the studies dissenting has been peer reviewed?"
- John Kerry, U.S. Secretary of State and Failed U.S. Presidential Candidate (2004)

"There was a massive study of every scientific article in a peer reviewed article written on global warming in the last ten years. They took a big sample of 10 percent, 928 articles. And you know the number of those that disagreed with the scientific consensus that we’re causing global warming and that is a serious problem out of the 928: Zero. The misconception that there is disagreement about the science has been deliberately created by a relatively small number of people."
- Al Gore, Former U.S. Vice President and Failed U.S. Presidential Candidate (2000)

"I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been told by AGW voices that there are NO qualified skeptics or peer reviewed/published work by them. Including right here by RC regulars. In truth there is serious work and questions raised by significant work by very qualified skeptics which has been peer reviewed and published. It should be at least a bit disturbing for this type of denial to have been perpetrated with such a chorus. It’s one thing to engage and refute. But it’s not right to misrepresent as not even existing the counter viewpoints. I fully recognize the adversarial environment between the two opposing camps which RC and CA/WUWT represent, but the the perpetual declaration that there is no legitimate rejection of AGW is out of line."
- John H., Comment at RealClimate.org

How the public is deceived by Lucifer's UN

Re: 1350+ Peer-Reviewed Papers


Lars G-eneva said... 12/02/2009
Hi Andrew!
I've compared your listing with the science references on the latest UNEP publication « The 2009 Climate Change Science Compendium» published on September 22 with the purpose of filling the gap of published climate research between the IPCC AR-4 of 2007 and the AR5 due to be released in 2014.
The numbers come out as follows:
The UNEP report:
A total of 376 scientific papers (not including references to Institutional Reports) out of which 316 papers refer to the period 2007-2009.
The Popular Technology listing:
A total of 438 papers (not including references to Institutional Reports) out of which 133 papers refer to the period 2007-2009.
I’ve compared these listings in order to establish if any of the AGW-critical papers have been included in the UNEP publication’s scientific paper references.
And I’ve found None! Nada! What I’ve only found are the names of a handful of scientists (I’ve counted to nine) that appear on both “sides” of the “issue-fence”.
This is unfortunately a potential proof of the action of an “invisible hand” or “cherry-picking” that is deliberately excluding opposite viewpoints and also excluding the “voice of” maybe hundreds of scientists. The total absence of recent AGW-critical papers in the UNEP-report can not be explained by “hazard”. The numbers are too large.
I've written a letter to the UNEP Executive Director which you can view here (it's too long for your comment system)

I recommend reading the open letter. It shows that AGW by CO2 is nothing more than a political deception to advance the NWO agenda and enable hugely expensive to the public counterproductive (more polluting) boondoggles like wind farms and solar panels foisted on a dumbed down, trusting public by ideologue activists and out-of-their-discipline (railway engineers, dendrologist, MDs etc) "climatologists". Climatology is not science, it is a political movement of deeply flawed opinion based speculation and more recently akin to fanatical religion.

Disability by Design

Titanium dioxide has a long dark history as a WMD it was first developed by the Germans during WW2, later it was refined by America during the Communist Vs Nationalist war in China where it was used as a catalyst for explosives. It is still an ingredient of Nano-thermite.
Later, it was developed, tested and proven as a chemical sterilant on animals and birds in the 1970’s, before its inclusion in our food chain.
Its inclusion in our food chain is simply Zero Population Growth in action.
There is a rather fallacious argument used by governments and manufacturers that Titanium dioxide kills E –coli, thus its inclusion as an antimicrobial in many products. But this is not the whole truth!
For we are being subjected to fear factor marketing, in the hope we will not question the marketing spin.
Does it kill E-coli? Yes it does and everything else as well!
One slight problem, only about three species of E-coli are toxic to humans, the other 600 odd varieties are absolutely essential to our health.
E-coli form part of micro flora which inhabits our digestive tracts.
Wise old Chinese doctors have known about this for centuries, when they prescribed Yellow Soup for certain conditions. Yellow Soups essential ingrient was the feces of a close family member.
They knew that it contained the very essentials of good health.
Recently Dutch doctors have refined this technique to deliver fecal transplants via a nasal gastric tube the save the lives of many people, beyond help of the most potent anti-biotics. People suffering with Ulcerative colitis have been treated this way. Interestingly Titanium dioxide has a causal relationship with Ulcerative colitis.
Among the early bio-markers of Titanium dioxide poisoning are Asthma, Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Obesity.
Why Obesity? And why the absolute silence about this fact?
Titanium dioxide bio-accumulates within the body, because we can only excrete approx 0.8mgs of Tio2 each day. When our consumption is higher than this we can expect to gain weight, not only from theTio2 but also from our own cells which are being redirected to accommodate the excessive toxic particles of titanium dioxide.
Our Digestive Tract.
The walls of our digestive tract are made up of millions of cells called microvillus, they act like tiny sensors which edit passing material, absorbing the essential nutrients and rejecting the rest. Each of these cells consists of three parts.
The tips of the cells are the intelligent sensors which play pass the parcel, the middle part are escalatory cells which draw nutrients down to the base where the lower part acts as micro digesters absorbing the material.
When the Microvillus are damaged by the constant abrasion by Titanium Dioxide, the
body starts reporting mal-absorption issues.
This is seen in formula fed infants as Otis media and in later ages as food intolerance, Irritable bowel syndrome, allergies, Asthma and it plays a role in problems of Autism.
When the balance between food absorption and peristalsis is altered, hunger is often the out-come. It becomes easy to understand why some people are easily motivated to eat more. When we neglect this issue, we do so at our collective peril. Walking, blindly along the road to obesity.
Please do not think the obese are greedy for they are not!
They simply suffering their version of Titanium Dioxide Poisoning
Obesity is simply disability by design
Titanium dioxide is not a nutrient. It is insoluble and it is the cause of many of humanities diseases. The list of diseases is simply mind numbing! The body count exceeds 200.
For it is the poison within us and we did not choose this scenario…..Our governments and corporations did.
Pretty soon each human must consider if supports the current paradigm of materialism, for it comes at great expense.
For there are not too many people in this world. That is simply Zionist rhetoric.
When the rich take and control 90% of the world’s resources, leaving the majority to struggle on the remainder. The inequity is obvious.

Chilcott: Waiting for the criminals to die as with the paedo cases?
Here pigeons, have a few crumbs.
Iraq war blame is bigger than Blair: Chilcot Inquiry to point fingers at ministers and intelligence chiefs
Michael Segalov 26 August 2015
The long-awaited Chilcot report looks set to share the blame for Britain's role in the Iraq war among a wider circle of senior figures than expected, according to sources close to the investigation.
The Guardian has reported that the inquiry, led by Sir John Chilcot, would condemn ministers and officials beyond Tony Blair and the former Prime Minister's most trusted advisers.
Among those who could be facing criticism are Jack Straw, the Foreign Secretary at the time of the invasion; Sir John Scarlett, then Chairman of Cabinet Office Joint Intelligence Committee; Sir Richard Dearlove, then head of MI6; Clare Short, then International Development Secretary and Geoff Hoon, who was Defence Secretary at the time.
By the end of this year, the inquiry will have been sitting for longer than British combat forces were actively deployed in Iraq.
Aha. A conspiracy to commit a war crime. War of aggression using lies to justify just like Cameron did with Libya. Blair was the button pusher if not the decision maker. The ICC would be fun but it is blind to white luciferians.
Regardless, this all leverages excuses for another war. "We, the luciferian establishment don't like Assad therefore we will kill masses of civilians that support him."
-Rob Mead wrote
Oh dear. Everyone deluded themselves that Hutton was not going to follow the time honoured path of establishment whitewash, given that we are in the 21st century.
But he was a judge, himself of the same establishment Britain and 'Sir' John will borrow from same tin of whitewash.
We dont apologise for atrocities we committed 50 years ago, we are not about to start owning up to them now.
Thus the myth of ones great nation endures.
I bet it doesn't point to the Israelis. Google the spies who pushed for war. And Conservative and Labour Friends of Israel.

Government issues damning response to 200,000-signature cannabis legalisation petition
The response said that 'cannabis can unquestionably cause harm to individuals and society'
Doug Bolton Tuesday 25 August 2015
The Government has issued a firm response to a parliamentary petition calling for the legalisation of cannabis, that reached over 200,000 signatures and will be considered for debate in parliament.
The petition that urges the Government to "make the production, sale and use of cannabis legal" has 203,466 signatures at the time of writing.
The text of the petition claims that the legalisation of cannabis "could bring in £900 million in taxes every year, save £400 million on policing cannabis and create over 10,000 new jobs."
The petition is the second most popular on the website, second only to one that calls for a debate on a no confidence vote in Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt.
Despite the petition's popularity, the Government has shut the door on the prospect of legalisation with their response.
It says: "The latest evidence from the independent Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs is that the use of cannabis is a significant public health issue"
"Cannabis can unquestionably cause harm to individuals and society. Legalisation of cannabis would not eliminate the crime committed by the illicit trade, nor would it address the harms associated with drug dependence and the misery that this can cause to families."

Vester Flanagan chase: BBC journalists covering WDBJ shooting 'threatened by Virginia police'
Reporters at scene of suspect's crash 'told to delete footage or lose camera'
Adam Withnall 27 August 2015
Two BBC journalists who filmed the scene where the Virginia shooting suspect crashed and shot himself say they were threatened by state police.
White House reporter Tara McKelvey and videojournalist Franz Strasser were among the first on the scene where the manhunt for the alleged WDBJ gunman Vester Flanagan came to an end, after they saw “sirens blaring” on I-66 West.
But on a day when the ability of journalists to do their jobs unhindered was a particularly heightened issue, officers with Virginia State Police reportedly told the reports to delete their footage or risk having their camera and car taken away.
Strasser wrote on Twitter that he decided to delete the footage because “it was either not being able to work for the rest of the day, without camera or car, or delete c***** footage from far away”. He said he “chose the latter”.

Major Dem Donor Haim Saban, Adelson Agree: Netanyahu Should Bomb Iran
[Luciferian Jew News]
by Jacob Kornbluh
Philanthropists and political power players from both sides of the aisle, Sheldon Adelson and Haim Saban shared a stage for the first time on Sunday debating a wide range of political issues but agreeing on the need for the U.S. to toughen its stance on a nuclear Iran.
In a vibrant discussion at the Israeli-American Council (IAC)’s First National Conference in DC, the two influentials – Adelson and Saban, a major Obama donor in 2012 and Hillary Clinton supporter in 2008, expressed deep skepticism of Obama’s policy towards Iran, as the deadline towards a possible deal with Iran over its nuclear development is looming.
Saban said the United States should explore “all options” including tougher economic sanctions and do more to make Iran understand “we mean business” if they don’t agree to a nuclear pact. “Take military action, but only after all options have been exhausted. A stick and a carrot yes — but we’ve shown too many carrots and a small stick,” he said.
If he were Netanyahu in the event of a bad Iran deal, Saban said, “First of all I’d come to the full realization we’re screwed, maybe” and “would bomb the living daylights out of these sons of bitches.”

The A=432 Hz Frequency: DNA Tuning and the Bastardization Music
432 DNA Tuning, Frequency, and the Bastardization of Music
26th August 2015
By Brendan D. Murphy Guest Writer for Wake Up World
A=440Hz: Not Quite Music to My Ears
Humankind is the largely unwitting victim of a frequency war on our consciousness that has been waged for decades, if not millennia. The goal has clearly been to keep us as gullible and subservient as possible, through multifarious means.
In modern history in particular, there has been what Dr. Len Horowitz has referred to as the strategic “militarization” of music. This happened in 1939 when the tuning of the note ‘A above Middle C’ to 440 Hz was adopted in the world of music. In 1910 an earlier push to effect the same change was met with limited success. Three decades later, the British Standards Institute (BSI) adopted the A=440Hz standard following staunch promotion by the Rockefeller-Nazi consortium—“at the precise time WWII preparations were being finalized by the petrochemical-pharmaceutical war financiers.”[i] This was the year that A=440 became the international standard.

Anthony Davis, a veteran security analyst with the defence analysts Jane's, has made a persuasive case for the Grey Wolves being the people who carried out the Bangkok bombings at the Erawan shrine in August 2015.
The Grey Wolves are run by the CIA and NATO.
The CIA "overtly transferred guns and explosives to Grey Wolf units through its agent, Frank Terpil" in the 1970s.[105]
NATO has used the fascist Grey Wolves to carry out acts of terrorism in Turkey.
The purpose of of the Grey Wolves has been to keep Turkey's mafia generals and various Islamists in power.

Israeli’s Rage and Impotence, the Final Days
[Israeli regime’s Rage and Impotence]
By Gordon Duff, Senior Editor on August 23, 2015
Israel is technically defenseless and humiliated. This is not conjecture nor is it a positive thing for prospects of peace. It is entirely the result of Netanyahu’s scheming and game playing and has led to serious escalations across the region. Today, Damascus is being shelled relentlessly. Our bureau personnel are in their homes and hotels, hearing sirens and shells falling.
Yesterday, an Israeli drone was shot down by a Syrian air defense missile of a type Israel was unaware had been deployed. The drone was directing fire from the Yarmouk Camp in South Damascus, Grad rockets and heavy mortars, that are hitting civilian areas across the city. Today an ISIS jihadist captured there described the Israeli fire control officers who are helping target key infrastructure systems, water and electricity. They have been successful.
This is on the heels of two days of Israeli air assaults that included no manned Israeli aircraft. The attacks are drones and artillery only on Syrian army positions across the UNTSO (United Nations Treaty Supervision Organization) lines. The UN has issued no reports of these violations as required by treaty.

Israel has two agendas:
1 They are pushing Syria to use new weapon systems from Russia. If Syria has the weapons Israel believes, including Iskander missiles, Israeli positions on the occupied Golan Heights are now useless.
2 With the S300 contract ready to be signed, Israel is attacking Syria while planting press stories about Iran attacks they never executed. This is pure impotence and utter idiocy for Netanyahu, showing his hand.
The lack of credible analysis of the situation in the Middle East and the war on ISIS isn’t an accident. Israel has something to hide, a series of major blunders by Netanyahu that have left Israel defenseless despite her massive air force and nuclear arsenal. We may well be in another “August 1914,” a run up to world war. That reference is made time and time again, abused nearly as often as the word “holocaust,” but this time may really be different.

We had said Israel is defenseless, we now make our case:
-In February 2015, the US took both Iran and Hezbollah off the Terror Watch List. They told Israel it was an administrative error. Iran and Hezbollah are still off the terror watch list some months later.
-In 2014, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Martin Dempsey, a man with little good will for Israel, re-positioned two AEGIS ships to the Black Sea, in violation of treaties. On April 10, 2014, Russia responded by using advanced jamming equipment, disabling one of these ships, the USS Donald Cook. These ships were the backbone of Israel’s Iron Dome air defense system. Note that the US uses AEGIS ships for its anti-missile defense as well. You see, phased array radar is useless unless used at sea.
-President Obama ordered the disabling of the Iron Dome in response to Netanyahu’s interference in American domestic politics, not just related to Iran but health care, social security, workers rights and other areas. Netanyahu has been working closely with members of organized crime to crash the American economy to punish President Obama. Those efforts have increased 10 fold since the Iran agreement including moves against China as well including what we are now told was the use of an Israeli tactical nuclear weapon at Tianjin. Ten days after the explosion, IAEA inspectors leaked their initial findings which are being released here for the first time. They list the weapon at 20 kilotons.
-The Iranian agreement with Russia over the delivery of an S300 air defense system will include, as has been reported by Moscow, sufficient upgrades to guarantee effectiveness against Israel’s nuclear tipped ballistic missiles, any possible tactic developed by the Israeli Air Force and to protect key regions of Iran from Israel’s German-designed and -built Dolphin nuclear cruise missile submarines.

Re: Israeli’s Rage and Impotence, the Final Days
-On May 2, 2013 at 2:30 AM, Syria sank an Israeli Dolphin submarine using advanced Russian systems. In the past months those systems have been upgraded. Russian ASW (anti-submarine-warfare) systems are designed to work in the Baltic against diesel electric submarines. Iran will now be getting these systems as well, making both the Persian Gulf and Indian Ocean a “hands off” zone for hostile submarines.
-Iran’s diplomatic inroads with India and Saudi Arabia (to a lesser extent) and their “dance” with Turkey, has outmaneuvered Israel as has the recent opening of the British embassy in Tehran.

Netanyahu’s Disaster Scenario
Israel feels it is pushed to take out Iran using nuclear weapons. However, it has no platform to reliably deliver them, as its medium range and ICBM missiles are easily shot down by the S300. Israel then is forced to go after “soft targets” — India, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, China, or perhaps as also seen in recent days, France.
This kind of thinking that worked so well on 9/11 no longer plays.
Were Iran to have need to respond to an Israeli provocation, even if the Iron Dome were a reality, which it is not, Israel would be destroyed in hours. Iran is simply too powerful and has, quite intelligently, manufactured thousands of medium range missiles that carry conventional payloads of some size. Worse still, through bombing Gaza, Syria and other precedents such as the Saudi air war on Yemen, after such a missile attack — even if Tel Aviv and Haifa were flattened to the ground, which they would be in hours — the international reaction would be muted.
Nobody cares anymore.
The US, no matter who or what is elected in 2016, will only stand and watch. America saw what interference brought in 1973, oil embargo and economic collapse. With Russia and China where they are today, there is no potential for American response, not even if Trump is in the oval office.
The media will simply underplay and ignore, as they have done for Israel so many times. The shoe will be on the other foot.
Nice one Gordon.
I said a while back Israel had become expendable.

How the CIA made Google

Inside the secret network behind mass surveillance, endless war, and Skynet—
part 1
Editor’s note: Veterans Today as been at war with Google for years. In 2010, we exposed their participation in the assassination of Iranian scientists and in 2012 their use of Sarin gas inside Turkey as CIA contractor “Google Idea Groups.” They worked closely with al Nusra, gassing hundreds of Syrian citizens and then planned the operation to blame it on Syria to push a world war between Russia and America.
It was a Google Ideas plan that Israel followed when its commandos planted radio repeaters disguised as rocks to pass on phony intelligence about WMD use. Israel lost a Dophin Submarine with 84 aboard in May of 2013 on a Google Ideas Group mission.

Aussies Busted for Running Pedophile Ring 45,000 Strong
By GPD on August 26, 2015
Global pedophile ‘dark net’ bulletin board busted from Australia
A 10-month operation by an Australian police anti-pedophile taskforce put an end to a global ‘dark net’ of child abusers that had 45,000 members. An Australian administering a pedophile ‘bulletin board’ was sentenced to 35 years in jail for child abuse.
Queensland’s Taskforce Argos targeting child abuse disclosed a clandestine pedophile ring, saving potentially hundreds of children from sexual exploitation, reports the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC).
Members of the ring residing in Australia, Europe, United Kingdom and the US ranked inside the network in accordance with the quantity and originality of materials they uploaded for common use inside the site. The name of the network, using encryption software to hide identities and mask people’s browsing history, has not been publicly disclosed by a South Australian District Court.

Investigation of a global child abuse led Argos to Australian national ringleader, who turned out to be Families SA (South Australia) employee Shannon McCoole from Adelaide. He was childcare worker with the agency from 2011 to 2014.
McCoole was busted thanks to the unusual ‘hiya’ greeting he used on the web, which led to police finding a Facebook page with a photograph of a Volkswagen four-wheel drive utility with a visible registration plate, which in turn led them to McCoole.
“He was a 32-year-old male. Lived alone, no real relationship or no recent partners from what we’ve gathered,” the ABC cited Detective Brevet Sergeant Stephen Hegarty of SA’s Sex Crimes Investigation Branch. And the man “immersed himself in child-related work” as well.

After four days of surveillance police knocked at McCoole’s door and arrested the suspect. The jackpot was found on his computer, which stored over 50,000 child porn images.
Metadata on McCoole’s camera was also used as evidence, as well as a freckle on his finger which matched one of the child abuse images discovered by Danish police in May last year that initiated the actual criminal proceedings in Australia.

Once McCoole was taken out of the game, police officers replaced the administrator in the pedophile ring and began the second stage of the operation, working 24-hours a day to expose as many pedophiles around the world as possible.
“Phase two was to take over the network, assume control of the network, try to identify as many of the key administrators as we could and remove them,” Detective Inspector Jon Rouse told ABC.
“This wasn’t an 8am-4pm, Monday-to-Friday operation. Even when the guys knocked off work we were all communicating outside work,” Rouse said.
“Ultimately, you had a child sex offender network that was being administered by police,” he added, stressing that the first thing done was closing membership of the board.
This stage lasted for whole 10 months and resulted in identification of pedophiles in at least three Australian states, Queensland, South Australia and Victoria, together with criminals in other countries.
“US, Europe, United Kingdom. [It was] global,” Rouse said.
“This required us engaging with those targets in real time while law enforcement went through doors. [There were] time zone challenges, but good work by authorities across the world,” the ABC cited Rouse.

Corbyn is a symptom?
The Meaning Of Corbyn
By Gilad Atzmon on August 24, 2015
Corbyn the symbol has come to embody the general fatigue with this post-political condition
…by Gilad Atzmon, London
The meaning of Corbyn has little to do with MP Jeremy Corbyn himself, his prospects of bringing about a change or his chances of being elected. The meaning of Corbyn is that he is symbolic of the revival of the search for meaning – a nostalgic longing for the political.
Within the context of the old liberal democratic phantasy, the political was thought to be an extension of the people’s will and whims. But this has changed radically within the present post political conditions. In the last four decades, we westerners have been reduced to mere consumers. Our Politicians have evolved accordingly. Politics has morphed into the system that facilitates consumption on behalf of big conglomerates.
Corbyn the symbol has come to embody the general fatigue with this post-political condition -frustration with austerity, endless immoral Zio-con wars, the loss of manufacturing, The Lobby, divisive identity nonsense and cultural Marxism as opposed to Marxism. Corbyn serves as a reminder of the revolution that never happened. He has reminded us that we are one after all.
The pathetic dance of despair performed last week by the Zionist continuum made up of large segments of British media, Labour leadership and pretty much every British Jewish institution in opposition to Corbyn is staggering yet hardly new or unique. They have kindly reminded us what we are up against. But the Brits were not fooled, they immediately detected the foreign attempt to hijack their battle for justice and replace it with ‘Jewish sensitivities.
Whether Corbyn can provide the goods while operating within a horrid Zionised Labour Party is an open question. But Corbyn, the symbol, emphasises the cry for change. A cry that is a genuine demand for justice expressed by the British people as they are reawakening to the real possibility of themselves as patriots – a collective of people who care for each other as opposed to an aloof collection of self-centric tribal identities who care only for themselves.

Turkey Pays Porter Goss and Friends to Shill for ISIS
By GPD on August 24, 2015
Turkey Pays Former CIA Director & Lobbyists To Misrepresent Attacks on Kurds & ISIS
By Harut Sassounian – Publisher, The California Courier
(http://www.TheCaliforniaCourier.com) -Thousands of articles have been published worldwide in the recent weeks exposing Turkey’s strategic trickery — using the pretext of fighting ISIS to carry out a genocidal bombing campaign against the Kurds who have courageously countered ISIS in Syria and Iraq.
The Wall Street Journal reported on August 12 that a senior US military official accused Turkey of deceiving the American government by allowing its use of Incirlik airbase to attack ISIS, as a cover for President Erdogan’s war on Kurdish fighters (PKK) in northern Iraq. So far, Turkey has carried out 300 air strikes against the PKK, and only three against ISIS! Erdogan’s intent in punishing the Kurds is to gain the sympathy of Turkish voters in the next parliamentary elections, enabling his party to win an outright majority and establish an autocratic presidential theocracy.
To conceal its deception and mislead the American public, within days of starting its war on the Kurds, Ankara hired Squire Patton Boggs for $32,000 a month, as a subcontractor to the powerful lobbying firm, the Gephardt Group. Squire Patton Boggs includes former Senators Trent Lott and John Breaux, and retired White House official Robert Kapla. The Gephardt lobbying team for Turkey consists of subcontractors Greenberg Traurig, Brian Forni, Lydia Borland, and Dickstein Shapiro LLP; the latter recently added to its lobbying staff former CIA Director Porter Goss. Other lobbying firms hired by Turkey are: Goldin Solutions, Alpaytac, Finn Partners, Ferah Ozbek, and Golin/Harris International. According to US Justice Department records, Turkey pays these lobbying/public relations firms around $5 million a year. Furthermore, several US non-profit organizations serve as fronts for the Turkish government to promote its interests in the United States and take Members of Congress and journalists on all-expense paid junkets to Turkey.
Among the US lobbyists for Turkey, perhaps the most questionable is Porter Goss, CIA Director from 2004 to 2006, who has agreed to sell his soul and possibly US national secrets for a fistful of Turkish Liras.

Putin’s Greatest Challenge to Satan Worshipers and New World Order Agents
By Jonas E. Alexis on August 26, 2015
Contrary to what Darwinian metaphysics later posited, history or the universe or even human beings are not meaningless or purposeless. There is a logos in history which can be apprehended by those who love the truth.
[Img of Putin] “All right, Satan worshipers and NWO agents. Let’s put it this way: you ask me some questions, and I’ll ask do the same. Let us debate this issue on a purely intellectual level. How many countries have you invaded and destroyed and bombed in the last twenty years alone? And please don’t lie to me because I’ve got the numbers right in front of me. You are welcome to ask me the same question, and you can find the numbers yourself. And based on those figures alone, which country is diabolical: Russia or the U.S.? Please, use your brain and do not let outside forces manipulate you.”
In response to the prevailing notion among New World Order agents that he is Hitler reincarnate,[1] a dictator,[2] a James bond villain,[3] and that Russia has violated international law,[4] Putin brilliantly said:
“I invite you to publish the world map in your newspaper and to mark all the US military bases on it. You will see the difference…
“American submarines are on permanent alert off the Norwegian coast; they are equipped with missiles that can reach Moscow in 17 minutes. But we dismantled all of our bases in Cuba a long time ago, even the non-strategic ones. And you would call us aggressive?
“As for us, we are not expanding anywhere; it is NATO infrastructure, including military infrastructure, that is moving towards our borders. Is this a manifestation of our aggression?
“Finally, the United States unilaterally withdrew from the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty, which was to a large extent the cornerstone of the entire international security system.
“Anti-missile systems, bases and radars are located in the European territory or in the sea, e.g. in the Mediterranean Sea, and in Alaska. We have said many times that this undermines international security. Do you think this is a display of our aggression as well?”[5]
Here Putin actually destroys the Zionist project which Satan worshipers and New World Order agents have tried to implement for years in the West. NWO agents will never accept Putin’s challenge precisely because they have relentlessly used the U.S. to destroy countries in the Middle East and elsewhere. Once again, if this is news to some, take a look at Iraq and Afghanistan.
Moreover, while the Neoconservatives and other Zionist flagships want to divert our attention to countries like Russia, China,[6] Brazil,[7] and North Korea,[8] the same people do not want to face the fact that our attention should be on the country that has damaged America and much of the West the most: Israel.[9] Russia or China has never threatened to annihilate any country, but Israel has. If this is news to some, then we must bring in Israeli military historian Martin van Creveld again, who said unequivocally:
“We possess several hundred atomic warheads and rockets and can launch them at targets in all directions, perhaps even at Rome. Most European capitals are targets for our air force…. We have the capability to take the world down with us. And I can assure you that that will happen before Israel goes under.”[10]
Imagine if Putin or Iranian officials happen to utter such a declaration. What do you think New World Order agents and Satan worshipers would do? Wouldn’t they incestuously and incoherently produce the declaration in the media ad infinitum? Remember how they ridiculously perpetuated the lie that Ahmadinejad wanted to wipe Israel off the map?
Now here is your small homework. Get a microphone, present the Creveld statement to any American and even many politicians that you encounter. Erase the word “Israel” and replace it with a blank space. Ask each person to fill the blank space with any country in the world. Do you seriously think that they are going to place Israel there? Do the homework, and the result will be mind-boggling.

Exposing US Ambassador to United Nations Samantha Power
By VNN on August 19, 2015
CrossTalk: Undiplomatic Power
How should we assess the behavior of Samantha Power, Washington’s top diplomat at the United Nations? Called by some a “foremost scholar on genocide,” Power is quick to back the use of military power in the service of so-called humanitarian goals. She is also fond of using the word ‘outrage’ – what does this tell us about her?
CrossTalking with Daniel McAdams, Scott Rickard, and Patrick Smith.


The official casualties are put at 6500, German intelligence has it at 50000. (paraphrased)
