The US response to the protests is a threat to withdraw funding. The poor that get no benefit from US-EC-UN benevolence gave their answer. The rich are fleeing the country likely with much of the donated cash, most to Dubai. Notable, banks are being attacked. (Are Egyptians banker-gov't scam savvy?)
Follow the Arab World Protests Online, the supporting mainstream media will only propagandize against the protests or neuter their reports.

Egyptian Protest In front of the White House
It is ironic, the US gov't, friend of Ali is between a rock and a hard place. Supporting Ali would confirm the US as an enemy of the Egyptian people, not helping Ali would be seen by other propped tyrants as him being thrown under a bus leaving them open to Russian and Chinese overtures. The globalist US gov't looks to have set up Dubai as a luxury emergency refugee camp for their beneficiaries to shelter.
The GOP split on Egypt
The Bush wing of the GOP has been cheerleading the Egyptian protests, and criticizing Obama for not pushing Bush's "Freedom Agenda" in public calls for democracy in Egypt.

Wikileaks Is The “Cognitive Infiltration” Operation Demanded by Cass Sunstein Infowars
Awareness is growing around the world that the Wikileaks-Julian Assange theater of the absurd is radically inauthentic – a psyop. Wikileaks and its impaired boss represent a classic form of limited hangout or self-exposure, a kind of lurid striptease in which the front organization releases doctored and pre-selected materials provided by the intelligence agency with the intent of harming, not the CIA, nor the UK, nor the Israelis, but rather such classic CIA enemies’ list figures as Putin, Berlusconi, Karzai, Qaddafi, Rodriguez de Kirchner, etc. In Tunisia, derogatory material about ex-President Ben Ali leaked by Wikileaks has already brought a windfall for Langley in the form of the rare ouster of an entrenched Arab government.
Gulf Daily, THE AFTERSHOCKS...
[...] ALGERIA: Early in January, five days of protests against high prices result in five people dead and more than 800 injured. The government orders a cut in basic food prices and pledges to keep subsidising wheat, milk and electricity. On January 22 riot police break up a pro-democracy rally, leaving around 20 injured. Two lethal self-immolations and seven more attempted suicides have been reported since January 14.
JORDAN: Thousands of Jordanians take to the streets of Amman and other cities on January 14 in protest of soaring commodity prices, unemployment and poverty, calling for the sacking of the government. On January 16 more than 3,000 Jordanian trade unionists, Islamists and leftists stage a sit-in outside parliament to protest against the economic policies. On January 21 more than 5,000 people rally after weekly prayers. On Friday thousands of Jordanians demonstrate peacefully in Amman and other cities after weekly prayers. On Saturday, a noisy protest is staged outside the Egyptian embassy in Amman.
SUDAN: A 25-year-old Sudanese who set himself on fire in a suburb of Khartoum dies from his injuries on Wednesday. Widespread economic and political discontent in north Sudan has led to sporadic protests.
MOROCCO: Three Moroccan men set themselves on fire on January 21 and another follows suit on Tuesday. The authorities issue tenders to buy grain in order to avoid shortages.
YEMEN: Police disperse hundreds of protesters chanting pro-Tunisia slogans at Sanaa University on January 18. On Thursday thousands stage a mass protest calling on President Ali Abdullah Saleh to quit. There are four self-immolations, one of them fatal. On Saturday, dozens of activists calling for the president's ouster clash with the regime's supporters and plainclothes police in Sanaa.
A tool of the globalists spouts dogma diarrhea, Capitalism is "Environmental Suicide" Says "We Need a Revolution"
UN Secretary General, Ban-Ki Moon [panicking as the gang-green dogma source of UN-globalist lucre is collapsing?] has launched an astonishing attack on the current economic system of Western-style capitalism, saying that it was dangerous and outdated in the light of global warming, and calling for a new economic paradigm.
My take is that he is passing on the "hurry up with the global fiat currency scam" message from the globalist nut jobs in CoR and CFR and the ever-voracious bank cartel. The UK gov't supports the UN (an arm of the globalists) an enemy of national sovereignty with billions diverted from rip-off tax, VAT and energy bill hikes and borrowings from globalist banks, much via DFID.
Via Climate Realists
Another monster is staked in Slaying the Sky Dragon. Now available in paperback with free chapters online. The globalist-ecofascist movement is under assault from its victims from all sides. Climate Realists spoke of an e-mail exchange between unbeliever authors and the tepidista (or lukewarmist) sceptics who have challenged some of the book's claims. Anthony Watts of WUWT disappointed many by quickly withdrawing from the discussion soon after it started. It was left to Monckton, Spencer and Curry to defend the established CO2-GHG theory.
Latest developments, Dr. Martin Hertzberg has lately had an important new paper, published on Energy and Environment further attacking the greenhouse gas theory. World leading independent long-range weather forecaster, Piers Corbyn of WeatherAction.com has towelled himself down and sat ‘ringside’ ready to tag team his co-authors from the ‘Slayers’ stable. But all proceedings so far have been in good spirits. In light of Dr. Curry graciously agreeing to stage this debate Professor Claes Johnson, who was recently banned from teaching any such material to his students by the Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden posted his response:
Power of Language: "Refrigerator Effect" vs "Greenhouse Effect"
Mentioned in that post:
Lord Monckton, Judy Curry and Roy Spencer are critical to the critique in the new book Slaying the Sky Dragon: Death of the Greenhouse Gas Theory of the "greenhouse effect" underlying CO2 climate alarmism. My arguments that the standard conception of the "greenhouse effect" represents a scientific dead end, are summarized in my contributions to the book: Computational Blackbody Radiation and Climate Thermodynamics.
[...] Judy now signals that she is ready to initiate a discussion on her blog starting from the two
articles listed above. I look forward to this discussion. Science without discussion is dead immobile science, while science with discussion is live science which can move forward.
PS If you want to get to understand thermodynamics for the first time in your life, download the draft of my upcoming book Computational Thermodynamics and explore physics with confusing statistics replaced by
* analog finite precision computation (reality)
* modeled by digital finite precision computation (virtual reality).
The idea of finite precision computation also underlies the new analysis of blackbody radiation
as Computational Blackbody Radiation.
In a comment, bearing in mind my view that SB is only applicable to the surface and TOA, i.e. it is a 2 dimension equation:
I would like to see a discussion about the Stefan-Boltzman equation which I believe is being wrongly used by many. For a start it is assumed radiation is from black bodies when there is no such thing. It has been shown that the sun does not conform perfectly to a black body. An emissivity factor has been used in modifying the S-B equation but this seems to be variously define and actually varies with temperature. It seems to me many AGW people assume that molecules of CO2 are black bodies when in fact radiation is only absorbed over a small wavelength range of that of the emitting body i.e. I estimate that the emissivity is less than 0.1 for 100% CO2. This then needs further correction for the amount actually present. Engineers then further modify the S-B equation when calculating heat transfer to take account of the temperature and emissivity of the receiving body. The S-B equation can not be simply differentiated to determine a relation between heat flow and temperature because of multiple variables. Engineers such as Prof Hoyt Hottel have made much research in heat exhangers (admittly closed systems) to determine heat transfer coefficients which include radiation. My estimation using Hottel's equations is that CO2 has an insignificant effect on atmospheric temperatures.
My take, I feel that that debate will not resolve how many angels dance on the head of a pin. Analogy - arguing the none existence of an invisible bearded alien that is immortal versus the direct physical influence such a creature has on the existence of everything.
Common sense is prevailing in some quarters. In the US new windmill installations fell by 72% comparing Jan-Sept 2010 to 2009. Cheap gas is blamed, the stability of low gas prices is a result of new tech means of fracking shale strata producing an abundance of methane with enough for centuries still untapped. Clathrate gas on many sea floors is yet to be evaluated but along with methane produced from rubbish, farm waste and recovery from frozen tundras will likely provide sufficient to keep the Earth's population from freezing for the whole of the ice age that may have already begun.
From A Wind Power Boonedoggle, (a dig at gang-greenist profiteer Boone Pickens, e.g. ...relentlessly promoted his “Pickens Plan” since July 4, 2008, announced earlier this month that he’s abandoning the wind business to focus on natural gas.
...So what is Mr. Pickens planning to do with all the wind turbines he ordered? He’s hoping to foist them on ratepayers in Canada, because that country has mandates that require consumers to buy more expensive renewable electricity.)
Some wind industry analysts are predicting that new wind generation installations will fall by as much as 50% in 2011.
There’s more bad news on the horizon for Mr. Pickens and others who have placed big bets on wind: Low natural gas prices may persist for years. Last month, the [pessimistic] International Energy Agency’s chief economist, Fatih Birol, said that the world is oversupplied with gas and that “the gas glut will be with us 10 more years.” The market for natural-gas futures is predicting that gas prices will stay below $6 until 2017.
A prediction. The term "wanna buy a bridge?" will soon be supplanted by "wanna buy a wind farm?"
Is Arctic Blast Proof of Global Warming?
"This is a shakedown operation being conducted by activists with PhDs who at the end of the day want to see cap'n trade imposed on the US.
The Arctic during the month of December was minus 25 to 30
In December the Arctic refroze 1.2 million square miles sea ice.
The last time this occurred it lasted from 1955 to 1979. Records set then are now being broken."

Words that must remain unspoken Bishop Hill
[...] In the formal minutes that appear at the end of the SciTech report, it is possible to read a paragraph that was proposed as an amendment by Graham Stringer. This is important.
There are proposals to increase worldwide taxation by up to a trillion dollars on the basis of climate science predictions. This is an area where strong and opposing views are held. The release of the e-mails from CRU at the University of East Anglia and the accusations that followed demanded independent and objective scrutiny by independent panels. This has not happened. /continues

First Entries For V For Victory Campaign Rolling In
“The British radio has called on people to write V for victory everywhere, and they are all over the place, even on shop fronts. They are also written on blackboards, on tables – everywhere. Even better, there’s a new badge: a V made with two crossed pins and worn on the lapel. Yvette and I counted seventy-five in five minutes!…On the Rue d’Astorg, I scribbled a V on a German car. I heard the sound of boots behind me, and moved off quickly.”
