Hezbollah in Mexico?

This should be front page news across America.

Iranian backed Hezbollah terrorists infiltrating the U.S. with the help of pro-communist Venezuela and Mexican drug cartels.

Some Relevant History - Soviet/Cuban Terror Connections

Part of an early 1980s doco on Soviet/Cuban terror links.

Includes cameos from Barack Obama buddies, former Weather Underground terrorists, Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn.

Also an interview with my good friend, former F.B.I. informant inside the W.U.O. Larry Grathwohl.

Larry was pretty handsome back in the day. No wonder those terrorist chicks liked him sooooo much.

Seriously though folks, these networks still exist today and now involve oil rich Venezuela and Middle Eastern terror groups.

These networks are intended to be used, when the time is ripe.

Breaking! Mark Ritchie's Communist Party Connection to be Exposed

Click here for Mark Ritchie File 5 which was published Tuesday 9am EST

At 9am EST Tuesday November 30, 2010, New Zeal will post documentary evidence linking Minnesota Secretary of State Mark Ritchie, to the Communist Party USA.

Why is this important?

A key part of Mark Ritchie's job is to oversee electoral recounts in Minnesota.

In early 2009 Mark Ritchie judged that his Wellstone Action Advisory Committee and Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party colleague Al Franken had won a Minnesota U.S. Senate seat, even though Republican opponent Norm Coleman was ahead on election night.

The recount was dogged with controversy, with allegations that felon's votes were illegally counted.

Currently, Mark Ritchie is overseeing another election recount. This could give the Minnesota governorship to another of Ritchie's Wellstone Action Advisory Committee and Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party colleagues, Mark Dayton.

One of the Communist Party USA members linked to Mark Ritchie, labor leader Mark Froemke used his union to endorse Al Franken.

In October 2009 Mark Froemke was the Fargo Moorehead organizer for a 10 Days of Labor Action campaign in support of Minnesota gubernatorial candidate Mark Dayton.

The Communist Party has infiltrated the Democratic Party in several states and openly supports the Democrats against the Republicans in its publications.

The fact that Mark Ritchie has documented covert ties to the Communist Party USA must bring his neutrality as an election overseer into severe doubt.

The voters of Minnesota deserve better.

Red Democrats File 1 - Lynn Woolsey Sponsored Communist Party Event

Several members of the approximately eighty strong, far left Congressional Progressive Caucus have documentable ties to the Communist Party USA, or its front organizations.

These include, but are certainly not limited to, Caucus vice chair Dennis Kucinich, Caucus founder and Senate member Bernie Sanders and house members Corrine Brown, John Conyers, Danny Davis, Rosa DeLauro, Barney Frank, Jesse Jackson, Jr. Barbara Lee, Charles Rangel, Bobby Rush and Maxine Waters

Here's another for the list - none other than Progressive Caucus co-chair and California 6th district Rep. Lynn Woolsey.

Below is a scan from the Communist Party's newspaper People's Weekly World from September 11 1999, advertising a People's Weekly World Gala Banquet. Woolsey is listed as a co-sponsor of the event:

Here's a close up.

Of those listed above Woolsey, identified Communist Party members or supporters include Cassandra Lopez, Juan Lopez, (identified on the advertisement as "chair, N. Calif. District CPUSA" Bob Martin, Coleman D. Persily, Michael Parenti , Avelino Ramos,
Nell Ranta, Gail Ryall, Anthony Toney and Doris Brin Walker.

Also listed on the left portion of the advertisement were long time communist front supporter Rep. Barbara Lee and more well known communists, including Arnold Becchetti, Marilyn Bechtel, Delmer Berg , Libero Della Piana and Herb Kaye (aka) Herb Kransdorf.

Lynn Woolsey is an influential Democrat. She serves on several Congressional Committees, including;
  • Committee on Education and Labor
  • Subcommittee on Early Childhood, Elementary and Secondary Education
  • Subcommittee on Workforce Protections (Chairwoman)
  • Committee on Foreign Affairs
  • Subcommittee on Africa and Global Health
  • Committee on Science and Technology
  • Subcommittee on Energy and Environment
Once Lynn Woolsey would have immediately be flagged as a security risk, for openly supporting a Communist Party fund raiser.

Today, the Communist Party supports Cuba and China and strongly opposes the U.S. war efforts in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Why then, would a loyal U.S. congresswoman be prepared to co-sponsor a Communist Party event?

"Boycott the Cancun Climate Circus"

Statement by Mr Viv Forbes, Chairman, of the Australian based Carbon Sense Coalition

The Carbon Sense Coalition today called on all Australian governments to boycott the Cancun Climate Change Circus.

The Chairman of “Carbon Sense”, Mr Viv Forbes, said “we do not want a repeat of the Copenhagen obscenity when 45,000 people gathered to discuss how to reduce things like air travel and conspicuous consumption”.

Forbes said there is no reason for Australia to attend.

This conference is no longer about climate – it is about international redistribution of wealth and industry from the west to the rest of the world. Australia is part of the spoils they hope to redistribute.

“There is zero chance of global agreement on emissions trading schemes or more carbon taxes. The political landscape and public opinion in the USA has turned dramatically sceptical of the increasingly shrill predictions from the desperate alarmists. Moreover, trading in carbon credits in Chicago has collapsed and even Al Gore is recanting on ethanol. Without US participation, nothing will be agreed globally.

“In addition, for over a decade, the whimsical world climate has mocked the feverish forecasts of the IPCC. Global Warming looks like becoming Global Cooling (still caused by burning coal of course). Prudently they chose tropical Mexico for this conference or the world media would be treated again to the amusing spectacle of warmists shivering in another bitter northern winter of “unseasonal” snow and blizzards.

“So they are plotting a new scheme – enforced global rationing of carbon emissions on a per capita basis. This means transfer of Australian wealth, industry and jobs to India, China and Africa for decades to come. And to bypass parliaments and the suspicious electorate, this will be attempted via “International Agreements”.

“Australia should send no more than one observer to Cancun, and that person should have no power to agree to anything. In particular there should be no promises to extend the failed but costly Kyoto Accord, and no transfer of authority to any new international body.

“A boycott makes more sense than sending jumbo jets of people to talk about reducing that sort of activity.”

Hat Tip Verum Serum

Workers World Party Activist - "I Got My Scope on You Tea Party Fascists"

One of America's most extreme communist organizations, the Workers World Party held a national convention in New York, November 13 and 14 2010.

One member, Florida based Cuban-American Mike Martinez fired up the crowd with an original poem. Martinez openly condoned violence against Tea Party activists and called for armed revolution, "people's war" and firing squads for "greedy" bosses.

Martinez also "rapped" that Lakota activists, armed with AK47s were preparing for war in the Dakotas and that New Black Panther Party "comrades" were ready to start "uprisings" in ghettos across America.

Some transcriptions from Martinez's poem. Emphasis added.
"So get ready, cause I'm coming strapped..."

"Don't forget, I got my scope on you Tea Party fascists. I'm reading Lenin, training in target practice. Let's see who's the fastest...."

"After genocide, slavery, AIDS and global warming, this beef is unsquashable, because the class contradictions have become permanently irreconcilable..."

"Remember New Orleans? They let those levees break..."

"That's right boss man, them bells are tolling. It's time to settle the score..."

"They won't be able the dam the rushing tides of people's war..."

"The AKs are clocked, locked and cocked in the Dakotas. Because the North and South belongs to the Lakota..."

"And this is just a first taste of what's to come when all ducks will be in a row. Wait till you see my Panther comrades lead an uprising in every single last ghetto..."

"The Pentagon? they're lucky all these people are sleeping. Cause with all their troops in Iraq, we could easily catch them sleeping...."

"They wanna know why we'll bear arms? that's easily explainable..."

"So follow the Party's command, every woman student and man, fall into position. The Workers World Party will put the bosses up against the wall and bring justice to each one in the order of who's the greediest of them all..."

"And as for the pigs? We're out of time. Because like a good Jew or a Muslim, we don't deal with no swine."
Next is the original version, from the Workers World Party, October 23 2010 conference in Durham, North Carolina. It is identical except that the it uses the word "fascists", rather than "Tea Party fascists"

There is also a cool "bonus track", in which Mike Martinez tells the history of Haitian revolution.

Martinez's rantings should not be dismissed lightly. The Workers World Party has been around since 1959 and has a significant presence in many major U.S. cities.

The W.W.P. supports North Korea and has very close ties to Cuba.

In the 1970s, many Party members worked closely with the terrorist Weather Underground. Several W.W.P. cadre, for instance attended the Weathermen's February 1976 National Hard Times Conference in Chicago, with the likes of Jennifer Dohrn, sister of W.U.O. leader Bernardine Dohrn.

Another prominent W.U.O. leader, Bernardine Dohrn's husband Bill Ayers, was involved in at least one W.W.P. front while living in New York in the early 1980s.

The W.W.P. apparently believes that major instability is looming in the U.S. and mean to take full advantage of it. They will likely be in the thick of any violence that may break out on American streets in the coming months and years.

If the F.B.I. is doing its job, it will have a record of the name and address of every single W.W.P. leader on file.

For America's sake, I hope they do.

"The Collapse Of Communism: The Untold Story"

Here is the trailer for the as yet unreleased film by Czech/American producer Robert Buchar.

The film features interviews with former Soviet dissident Vladimir Bukovsky, former Czech dissident and prominent political activist Petr Cibulka, KGB defector Oleg Gordievsky, former senior Romanian intelligence official Ion Mihai Pacepa, author Edward Jay Epstein, current US Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, prominent academic Angelo Codevilla, Washington Times journalist Bill Gertz, analyst Jeff Nyquist and former deputy head of the Central Intelligence Agency's Soviet Bloc Division, Tennant Bagley.

According to Buchar;
Our witnesses testify that what appeared to be a spontaneous freedom movement in 1989 was in fact a coup d’état orchestrated from Moscow—in offices of the Russian KGB...

People will simply believe what they wish to believe. More people indulge their own ideas of the world rather than deal with its realities..
I realized that the collapse of the communism in Europe is one of the most incredible stories of the century and the public should know what really happened...

I collected unprecedented body of interviews that, when edited together, paints the big picture of what really happened...

From Buchar's website
The Collapse of Communism: The Untold Story is a feature length documentary film currently in postproduction.

The great political upheaval of the late 20th century--the fall of communism in Eastern Europe and the collapse of the Soviet Union--is now generally regarded as the spontaneous product of long-accumulating social and economic pressures. The political confusion and economic disarray that followed is seen as nothing more than a passing phase in an inevitable march toward a more perfect democracy.

During the final phase of the Cold War the Soviet Union, under its dogmatic and visibly senile party bosses, was sinking into near-bankruptcy. Yuri Andropov, Chairman of the KGB, the only organization with both a full knowledge of the state of the economy and a mastery of strategic decisions, came to the conclusion that there was no cure for the grave illness of the communist system. To preserve the wealth that threatened to slip out of the leaders hands, he masterminded a nearly unthinkable program, throwing into the fire Moscow's rule over the Eastern European bloc, and, as it turned out, the ruling party of the USSR itself. Though Andropov died in 1984, the signs of his hand in the events that followed remain visible, as well as the role of his handpicked successor Mikhail Gorbachev. Our witnesses testify that what appeared to be a spontaneous freedom movement in 1989 was in fact a coup d'etat orchestrated from Moscow, in offices of the Russian KGB.

Perhaps for the first time in known history, we have walked through a revolution without realizing who are the real winners and losers.

The consequences are far reaching and people in the West seem to have a short memory. It's clear today that development in Russia didn't go the way the West anticipated. Russia became the perfect KGB state. 80% of government officials are former or active KGB officers, including President Vladimir Putin himself. The objective of the Soviet regime was to overthrow the United States as the world's leading power. The Soviet KGB fathered state sponsored terrorism. The PLO was dreamt up by KGB. In 1960s a new element was added to the Soviet/PLO war, international terrorism. Today's international terrorism was conceived at the Lubyanka.

As Yuri Andropov once explained to Ion Pacepa, the Muslim world was a Petri dish in which the Russians might nurture a virulent strain of America-hatred from the bacterium of Marxist-Leninist thought. KGB General Alexander Sakharovsky once said to Pacepa: "In today's world, when nuclear arms have made military force obsolete, terrorism should become our main weapon". Americans and Europeans no longer remember the past and don't realize that history is now repeating itself. No effective counter-strategy is likely to emerge from Washington because a regime predicated on economic optimism cannot accept the negative implications of ongoing Russian enmity. People will simply believe what they wish to believe. More people indulge their own ideas of the world rather than deal with its realities.
Hat Tip Spirit of Truth

Whether the collapse of communism was planned in the 1950s, or in the 1980s, there is overwhelming evidence that the scenario was largely faked by East Bloc intelligence services.

What does it mean for the West, that the enemy most of us thought was dead, was instead secretly consolidating its power, in preparation for a decisive assault?

Who Benefits? The Food Safety Bill Will Centralize and Regulate Food Production

“If people let government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny.” - Thomas Jefferson.

This Founding Father would be rolling in his grave if he knew of the draconian measures to restrict food production the Senate is seeking to bring in. Under the deceptive title of the "FDA Food Safety Modernization Act", the bill if passed into law will crack down not only on large corporations, but also on "small businesses and entities that sell directly to consumers", and will give authorities power to further regulate "growing, harvesting, sorting, packing, and storage operations, minimum standards related to soil amendments, hygiene, packaging, temperature controls, animal encroachment, and water".

The Food Safety Bill (S. 510) is being heralded as more dangerous than even the Health Care Reform which passed earlier this year. Section 404 makes it clear that the bill seeks to conform to the requirements of the World Trade Organization and grants new authority to the Department of Homeland Security to oversee food production. Here's the key catchphrase from the proponents of this bill, responding to criticisms that the bill will cripple small-time farmers. This comment from Sandra Eskin of the Pew Charitable Trusts:
"Rather than telling peo­ple they don't have to meet these basic safe­ty re­quire­ment that will be scale and size ap­pro­pri­ate, rather than ex­empt­ing them we think you should be giv­ing as­sis­tance in help­ing them meet the re­quire­ments of the law."
Because that's what we want, isn't it. We want the Government to protect us with the likes of this highly regulative "food safety" bill, and then to very kindly help us to meet the requirements of the law. Eskin also applies the tired "progressive" argument that the law is too old,
"The last time that the FDA’s law re­lat­ed to food was changed in any ma­te­ri­al way was 1938... Over the course of the fol­low­ing decades, we’ve seen our food sup­ply ex­pand and change marked­ly but the law has not kept up."

"Progressive" Democratic Sen­a­tor for Montana, Jon Tester, proposed amend­ments which would ex­empt small pro­duc­ers and pro­duc­ers that sell pri­mar­i­ly di­rect­ly to con­sumers, ho­tels, and restau­rants from new reg­u­la­tions. Mark Kastel, co-founder of The Cornucopia Institute explained the need for the Tester amendment,
"We want to make sure that consumers have the right to choose between these two alternative supply systems (large scale farms and small farmers). Since nothing is 100 percent sure, I for one will gamble with my health, and the health of my family, by continuing to patronize local organic farmers. Weighing the risks, and the benefits of superior quality and nutrition, I think I am making a good investment. The concern is that this bill, without the Tester amendment, will competitively and economically injure these farmers, probably the safest farmers in our country, and deprive some consumers of this option in the marketplace."
On Nov. 18 the bill passed with a compromised version of Tester's amendment. Rady Ananda at Food Freedom has stated that the amendment is simply "lipstick on a pig", and lists the shortcomings in the bill as it currently stands:
  • It does not address the real causes of food safety issues stemming from the centralized, industrialized food supply chain;
  • It ensures that international trade agreements have supremacy over local laws;
  • It destroys States’ rights to define a culturally-appropriate legal platform under which food is produced and distributed;
  • It transfers authority over food regulation enforcement from the FDA to the Department of Homeland Security, which brought us the liberty-killing, child-molesting TSA, which disastrously handled the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, which has genocidally turned its eyes away from the ongoing BP disaster in the Gulf of Mexico;
  • It extends a failed and destructive HACCP to all food, thus threatening to do to local food production and farming what HACCP did to meat production – it eliminated small and medium-sized meat packers; and
  • It significantly increases FDA’s power, an agency which has stated on public record that the American people have no “fundamental right to their own bodily and physical health” and “do not have a fundamental right to obtain any food they wish.”
It is particularly important to note that claims that the Tester amendment will now,
"exempt small farmers who make less than $500,000 a year in revenue and sell directly to consumers, restaurants or grocery stores within their states or within 275 miles."
Are false, because it only exempts these small farmers from having to submit food safety plans. It does not exempt them from inspections that they get billed for, licensing requirements with expensive quality controls, product confiscation. And anyway, as the dollar crashes, how much is $500,000 a year going to be worth? In response to the arguments being made in favor of the bill with advocates touting the "5,000 deaths occur every year as a result of food-borne illness," David E. Gumpert, health and food issues reporter, makes the following important point,
"...Some of the injuries that have resulted from food-borne illness aren't necessarily a result of an absence of legislation. They are the result of the FDA not doing its job. For example, the FDA knew for years about the problems with the Iowa egg producers, yet didn't go after them in anything like the aggressive way it has gone after small food producers who have made no one ill."
Off the Grid News explains what will happen to seeds if the bill passes,
"The big agriculture giants want to make you dependent on them for any seed, even if it’s heirloom seed. They know that they need the regulatory heft of Big Brother in order to accomplish this. First they need to eliminate seed cleaning equipment. They get the FDA to set minimum “food safety” standards for seed cleaning so that any farmer would need at least a million dollars in structure and equipment to meet the new requirements. And that’s per line of seed."
Harsh regulation of seed handling will of course, result in larger corporations such as Monsanto consolidating the production of seeds. Interesting to note that George Soros' hedge fund has just bought 897,813 shares (valued at $312.6 million) in Monsanto. It is Soros' second biggest investment. More on conflicts of interest within the FDA here.

The bill also increases the costs of the FDA, with $825 million set aside for 2010, and "such sums as may be necessary for fiscal years 2011 through 2014." The bill then stipulates that no fewer than 1,200 additional staff must be employed at the Office of Regulatory Affairs of the Food and Drug Administration, the Secretary of Health and Human Services.

The sponsor of the bill is Council for a Livable World-endorsed (CLW) Senator for Illinois Dick Durbin. The bill is co-sponsored by several mainly "progressive" Democrats and some Republicans:

CLW-endorsed Senators:
Republican Senators:
  • Richard Burr (NC)
  • Saxby Chambliss (GA)
  • Michael Enzi (WY)
  • Judd Gregg (NH)
  • Johnny Isakson (GA)
  • Lamar Alexander (TN)
  • David Vitter (LA).

A letter to the editor of Anchorage Daily News was titled, “Pry my turnip from my cold, dead hand," in which the author wrote, "I'd like to see who's going to stop me from growing a turnip or two."

You can roll your eyes and say "that's never going to happen" - but if you want to ensure that it doesn't, then write to your Senator - in particular the Republicans who voted to bring the bill to the floor of the Senate.

Update - Nov. 24, 11:10pm: Removed Orrin Hatch's name from list of co-sponsors, as original list taken from an older copy of the bill.

Russia and China Will "Never Become Each Other's Enemy"

For more than 40 years US foreign and military policy has been based on the premise that Moscow and Beijing are rivals to be played off against each other.

But what happens if America's main adversaries form an alliance? Where does America turn, when two of the worlds major military powers unite?

My premise is that Moscow and Beijing have been allies all along. Whether I'm right or wrong, there can be no doubt that they ARE ALLIES NOW.

How long before Russia and China strike with "one closed fist" at the "main enemy" the United States of America?

From China Daily

Vladimir Putin, Wen Jiabao

St. Petersburg, Russia - China and Russia have decided to renounce the US dollar and resort to using their own currencies for bilateral trade, Premier Wen Jiabao and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin announced late on Tuesday.

Chinese experts said the move reflected closer relations between Beijing and Moscow and is not aimed at challenging the dollar, but to protect their domestic economies.

"About trade settlement, we have decided to use our own currencies," Putin said at a joint news conference with Wen in St. Petersburg.

The two countries were accustomed to using other currencies, especially the dollar, for bilateral trade. Since the financial crisis, however, high-ranking officials on both sides began to explore other possibilities.

The yuan has now started trading against the Russian rouble in the Chinese interbank market, while the renminbi will soon be allowed to trade against the rouble in Russia, Putin said.

"That has forged an important step in bilateral trade and it is a result of the consolidated financial systems of world countries," he said.

Putin made his remarks after a meeting with Wen. They also officiated at a signing ceremony for 12 documents, including energy cooperation.

The documents covered cooperation on aviation, railroad construction, customs, protecting intellectual property, culture and a joint communique.

Putin said one of the pacts between the two countries is about the purchase of two nuclear reactors from Russia by China's Tianwan nuclear power plant, the most advanced nuclear power complex in China.

Wen's trip follows Russian President Dmitry Medvedev's three-day visit to China in September, during which he and President Hu Jintao launched a cross-border pipeline linking the world's biggest energy producer with the largest energy consumer.

Wen said at the press conference that the partnership between Beijing and Moscow has "reached an unprecedented level" and pledged the two countries will "never become each other's enemy".

Over the past year, "our strategic cooperative partnership endured strenuous tests and reached an unprecedented level," Wen said, adding the two nations are now more confident and determined to defend their mutual interests.

"China will firmly follow the path of peaceful development and support the renaissance of Russia as a great power," he said.

"The modernization of China will not affect other countries' interests, while a solid and strong Sino-Russian relationship is in line with the fundamental interests of both countries."

Wen said Beijing is willing to boost cooperation with Moscow in Northeast Asia, Central Asia and the Asia-Pacific region, as well as in major international organizations and on mechanisms in pursuit of a "fair and reasonable new order" in international politics and the economy.

Wen arrived in the northern Russian city on Monday evening for a regular meeting between Chinese and Russian heads of government.

"Atlas Shrugged" Doco Trailer

Here is a trailer for a documentary on Ayn Rand's great novel "Atlas Shrugged".

First released in 1957, I read the book in 1975. As a 17 year old recovering socialist, raised on "free" milk, family "benefits"," "free" health care and education and an unlimited faith in the Kiwi welfare state, it was pretty hard to take. It challenged my worldview like nothing I had ever read before. Still does.

The tale of a strike of the productive and able against a growing American socialist state, "Atlas Shrugged" is now more timely than ever.

I've seen the book being read on the Chicago Red Line and in Wisconsin libraries, it's selling like never before.

If you haven't read it yet - do yourself a favor.

Miners Almost Certainly Dead

Abridged from Stuff

A second explosion has ripped through the Pike River mine with no survivors expected, police say.

Superintendent Gary Knowles said the large explosion happened around 2.37pm today and they were not expecting anyone to get out alive.

They were now going into recovery mode. It was one of the most horrific things he has had to deal with as a police man.

"We had to break the news to the family and they are extremely distraught.

"I was at the mine myself when the explosion occurred. The blast was horrific. Just as severe as the first blast - and we are now moving into a recovery mode."

Mark Ritchie File 4 Minnesota S.O.S. Supported by Communists, Socialists and Soros Family

Mark Ritchie File 3 here

Minnesota's Secretary of State Mark Ritchie, has been supported by some very radical people.

A quick view through Ritchie's 2006 supporters list highlights five main interrelated socialist organizations and one highly influential family.

  • Institute for Policy Studies One of the most influential far left organizations in America. Brian Crozier, director of the London-based Institute for the Study of Conflict , once described I.P.S. as the "perfect intellectual front for Soviet activities which would be resisted if they were to originate openly from the KGB."
  • New Party A radical party formed by Democratic Socialists of America and the Institute for Policy Studies in the early 1990s. Its most successful candidate has been Barack Obama. Mark Ritchie was an early New Party "builder".

Socialists and communists seldom support politicians who are not sympathetic to their cause.

Why would Mark Ritchie be supported by some of the most militant socialists in America, if they did not consider him one of them?

This is soooo cool. Sent to me by my friend Jim Wilson from New York.

One of my my all time favorite songs given a universal perspective.

Loved the Santa Monica segment - was standing in that spot a couple of months ago.

Pro North Korean Communists Chant Obama Slogan in Spanish

My fearless friend Cliff Kincaid of America's Survival attended the pro North Korean Workers World Party National Conference in New York on November 13.

He recorded this video before he was kicked out.

Watch WWP operative Teresa Gutierrez call for freedom for terrorist lawyer Lynne Stewart (now serving 10 years in prison for illegally assisting Islamic terrorist clients), Leonard Peltier (who killed two FBI agents), and five Cuban spies in prison in the U.S.

Watch the crowd chant "Si Se Puede!", Cesar Chavez's old slogan, now a communist battle cry. Barack Obama's campaign anglicized this in 2008, as "Yes we can!"

Well done Cliff "Cojones" Kincaid.

Cars, Cattle and Ethanol

This guy always makes sense.

Statement by Viv Forbes, Chairman, The Carbon Sense Coalition, Australia.

The Carbon Sense Coalition today accused climate alarmists of scientific incompetence in promoting ethanol as an offset to animal emissions.

The Chairman of “Carbon Sense”, Mr Viv Forbes, was responding to claims by Mr Combet that agriculture (mainly cattle and sheep) “made up 23% of Australia’s emissions”.

“Why are emissions from cattle eating grain classed as bad whereas emissions from cars burning grain ethanol are good?

“Consider a paddock of corn. Most of the carbon in the growing plant comes from carbon dioxide in the air and is converted to plant material using solar energy via the magic of photosynthesis. Some comes from the atmosphere via microbes in the soil.

“This plant material, either biomass or grain, can be fed to cattle or made into ethanol for motor fuel.

“Both cattle and cars then use an internal digestion/combustion process to extract the energy stored in the plant material.

“Both processes produce gaseous emissions. In cars, virtually every atom of ethanol carbon burnt produces one molecule of carbon dioxide. In cattle, some of the plant’s carbon is stored for a while in flesh and bones, and the rest is emitted as the natural gases carbon dioxide and methane. This methane is soon oxidised in the atmosphere to produce carbon dioxide.

“Over the life of a car or a cow, they both produce the same carbon emissions. Every atom of carbon extracted from the air by the green plant eventually returns to the atmosphere as carbon dioxide, the plant food. This is the cycle of life.

“It is therefore scientific incompetence or deliberate fraud by government climate alarmists to claim that consuming ethanol in cars is good and should be subsidised but consuming the same plant material in cows must be rationed and taxed.

“An ethanol industry propped up by subsidies and mandates is not sustainable. This industry damages taxpayers and pushes up the cost of grains, beef, pork, eggs, milk and cereals.

“Subsidising ethanol brings no environmental benefits and is the enemy of the poor and hungry of the world. Its special privileges should be immediately removed.”

Treason? Communist Party USA Prepares to Defend China Against US in Event of "Confrontation"

The Communist Party USA is preparing to defend China against the US, in what it sees as a looming Washington/Beijing "confrontation".

While long a loyal ally of the Soviet Union and later the Communist Party of the Russian Federation, the Communist Party USA has also become markedly pro-China in recent years.

As Moscow and Beijing have openly moved into a military and economic alliance through the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, the American Communist Party has also staked out a pro-China position.

Now Communist Party USA members are discussing how to help China, in the event of Washington/Beijing hostilities.

Political Affairs, the theoretical journal of the Communist Party USA is currently advertizing a December 4 meeting at Berkeley's Niebyl-Proctor Marxist Library - "China and the US: The emerging confrontation".

This is the key paragraph.
The United States government has been committing direct acts of provocation against China's economy and other aspects of its society, including its military. In addition to disturbances in Tibet and uprisings of Uigurs in China's northwest province, there are developing showdowns with Japan and South Korea. All have the fingerprints of the United States. If these confrontations are allowed to become full-blown, it will put the current US military ventures in Afghanistan, Iraq, and elsewhere in the shade, and will demand from all of us new energies to struggle on yet another – perhaps the biggest – domestic front against US imperialism.
Note the phraseology - "The United States government has been committing direct acts of provocation against China's economy and other aspects of its society". This is reminiscent of the Communist line of decades past which accused the US of waging "wars of aggression" in Korea and Vietnam, even though both wars were sparked by communist invasions.

This language is designed to condition US communists into loyalty to Beijing, by painting the US as an aggressor in any future hostilities - even if China strikes first.

The message will be: "China only attacked in self defense. The US shouldn't have pushed China. China only wants peace. Workers must defend China against US aggression."

This is the most significant sentence;
If these confrontations are allowed to become full-blown, it will put the current US military ventures in Afghanistan, Iraq, and elsewhere in the shade, and will demand from all of us new energies to struggle on yet another – perhaps the biggest – domestic front against US imperialism.
What does this mean? It is a clear signal that US "comrades" must prepare to act as at least a propaganda and activist "Fifth Column" for China, if and when conflict breaks out between Washington and Beijing.

Will this escalate to full blown treason, should a shooting war start?

The Communist Party USA's own disloyal history suggests it would.

"Red Dawn" - Not Just a Movie, a Warning

"Red Dawn" has been remade - but will it ever be released?

The original 1980s classic movie, was the story of an invasion of the US by Soviet, Cuban and Nicaraguan forces.

This time its Red China and their Russian allies.

From AOL's Daily Finance site
Set against the backdrop of contemporary politics, the film begins with an American withdrawal from Iraq. The President decides to redeploy troops to Taiwan, where escalating Chinese militarism is threatening America’s ally. At the same time, he also welcomes the former Soviet republic of Georgia into NATO, unleashing Russian worries that America is spreading its sphere of influence deep into Eastern Europe. Having destabilized relations with two of the world’s largest powers, the President then claims that the U.S. is only partly to blame for a global economic meltdown, further escalating tensions with China and ultimately leading to the invasion of the Pacific Northwest.

I do have a problem with this scenario, as it blames US ineptitude for provoking the invasion. In reality the Chinese and Russians have long been planning to take down America, regardless of what America does.

However, if it is released every American, every Westerner should see this movie - not for entertainment, but as a warning.

Here's an official video on the movie set in Michigan.

The film was scheduled to be released on November 24, 2010, but is now in limbo due to MGM's current financial problems.

The film has also sparked major controversy in China. According to Film blog;

On the topic of the controversy brought up by the film (which hasn’t been shown publicly, mind you) there were strong words from a state-run Chinese paper after the script recently leaked out.

“U.S. reshoots Cold War movie to demonize China” and “American movie plants hostile seeds against China,” were the headlines last week in the Global Times, published out of Beijing. Articles went on to say that the film has roots in a deep American fear of Chinese power. “China can still feel U.S. distrust and fear, especially among its people. Americans’ suspicions about China are the best ground for the hawks to disseminate fear and doubt, which is the biggest concern with the movie ‘,’” went one piece.

No doubt Hitler would have protested an anti Nazi film made in 1938 as well.

Perhaps some patriotic American billionaire will buy the film from MGM and release it himself.

It would be a great service to free peoples everywhere.

Atlas Shrugged Coming to the Big Screen

Published the year before I was born, I first read Ayn Rand's "Atlas Shrugged" at the the age of 17 - it was like being smacked on the forehead with a cricket bat.

Now 53 years after it first hit the bookshelves, Rand's masterpiece is finally being made into a movie.

Can't wait.

Thanks to Don.

"The Frogs Who Wanted a King "

From a reader. A pioneering puppet/animation film from Russian expat Wladyslaw Starewicz.

Made in 1922, supposedly for children, there is a strong political/moral theme throughout -

Man's age old desire to pass responsibility up the line to an higher political authority and the inevitable enslavement and death that decision entails.

The accompanying music, though possibly not original, is spooky and very cool.

The Shanghai Cooperation Organization? What is it? Why Does it Matter?

While the West talks nuclear disarmament, a major new power bloc builds in the East.

While most Westerners have never heard of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, this economic/military alliance, is set to become one the most powerful forces on the planet.

What is the SCO? According to the organization's own website:
The Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) is a permanent intergovernmental international organisation creation of which was proclaimed on 15 June 2001 in Shanghai (China) by the Republic of Kazakhstan, the People’s Republic of China, the Kyrgyz Republic, the Russian Federation, the Republic of Tajikistan and the Republic of Uzbekistan. Its prototype is the Shanghai Five mechanism.

The main goals of the SCO are strengthening mutual confidence and good-neighbourly relations among the member countries; promoting effective cooperation in politics, trade and economy, science and technology, culture as well as education, energy, transportation, tourism, environmental protection and other fields; making joint efforts to maintain and ensure peace, security and stability in the region, moving towards the establishment of a new, democratic, just and rational political and economic international order...

The Organisation has two permanent bodies – the Secretariat in Beijing and the Regional Counter-Terrorism Structure in Tashkent. SCO Secretary-General and RCTS Executive Committee Director are appointed by the HSC for a period of three years. From 01 January 2007 these posts are held by Bolat K.Nurgaliev (Kazakhstan) and Myrzakan U.Subanov (Kyrgyzstan) respectively.

The SCO member states occupy a territory of around 30 million 189 thousand square kilometers, which makes up three fifths of the Eurasian continent, and have a population of 1.5 billion, which makes up a quarter of the planet’s population.
India, Pakistan and Iran are hold "observer" status with the SCO.

While virtually ignored by the MSM, the Communist press regards the SCO as a hugely important organization. It is seen as a means of re-aligning power away from the USA and the West in favor of the East and the Communist/Muslim world.

Here is an article on the SCO from the October 25, 2006 edition of the Communist Party of Australia's Guardian, with some commentary from New Zeal.

Significance of India, Russia, China cooperation

"The Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) countries are going to be the new powerhouse of the world. It is in India’s enlighten­ed interest that we understand its importance as we are a country which desperately needs energy", CPI (M) General Secretary Prakash Karat says in a statement this month. "Trilateral co-operation between India, China and Russia has symbolic significance as it can dispel the notion that the 21st century is an American century."
New Zeal As the head of the Communist Party of India (Marxist), Prakash Karat is a hugely influential figure. The CPI(M) controls several state governments and has a strong bloc in the Indian Parliament as does the "rival" Communist Party of India.
The recent meeting between India’s Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Chinese Premier Hu Jintao and Russian President Vladimir Putin on the sidelines of the G-8 summit held tremendous potential in the changing world situation. Karat was delivering a talk on the "Role of friendship societies in Indo-Russian relations".

Karat said the 21st century was not going to be an American century. "This will be an Asian century. Two countries, India and China, are to power Asia through their economic growth and political clout. Though a unipolar world appeared to emerge after the fall of the Soviet Union, current trends hint at a transition towards a multi-polar world which would be more balanced and equitable and with less scope for hegemony", Karat said.

Besides Asia, new power centres were developing in Europe, Latin America and Africa much to the "dismay" of United States.

Emerging co-operation among India, Brazil and South Africa, which are important countries in the developing world, would [also] promote multi-polarity in the world.
New Zeal South Africa's Communist Party dominated government has been very active in promoting ties with Marxist led Brazil and heavily Marxist influenced India. South African deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs, Azziz Pahad, brother of leading SACP member and adviser to then President Thabo Mbeki, Essop Pahad has been particularly active in promoting ties to India.
Stating that energy was going to be a major issue in the 21st century, he said Russia’s energy diplomacy had signaled that it would be assertive in the new situation.

The six-member SCO comprising Russia, China and central Asian republics, would have an increasing role in world affairs.

Karat urged the Indian Govern­ment to understand the importance of the SCO in which India, along with Pakistan, Iran and Afghanistan, were observers.

"If the Iran-Pakistan-India gas pipeline became a reality, the country would get gas at one-quarter of its price in the international market. Russia was now co-operating with Iran, and India should use its ties with Russia to play an increasing role in central Asia", Karat said.

He said the present world situation underlined the need to maintain, nurture and strengthen India’s ties with Russia. In the earlier period of the Soviet Union, India had been greatly influenced by the first socialist experiment.

"Promotion of people-to-people relations was also important while developing strategic relations with countries like China and Russia and developing nations", Karat said.
New Zeal How will a nuclear disarmed West deal with a power bloc spanning Asia from Vladivostok to Kiev and from the Arctic circle to Southern India? Combine that with an alliance between nuclear capable, or near capable India, South Africa and Brazil, allied in turn to oil rich Venezuela and Iran and you start to see a potential problem.

Yep, definitely a great time for Communist Party "friend" Barack Obama to lead America down the "no nukes" road.

Communists, Democrats and RINOs Urge US Disarmament

Moscow's best friends in America, the Communist Party USA have issued a call for the ratification of the controversial New START treaty with Russia in the "lame duck" session before Christmas.

Democrats are seeking to ratify the Treaty, with RINO Republicans, while the still have a solid majority in the Senate.

The Communist know that the Treaty would probably die in the next Senate and the "window of opportunity" to help their Russian friends will be lost.

The usual suspects, Hillary Clinton, John Kerry and Joe Biden are all working on the same side as the Communist Party.

Writing in the Peoples World, the PW Editorial Board

Arizona Republican Senator Jon Kyl's abrupt announcement Nov. 16 that he opposes consideration of the New START treaty to cut U.S. and Russian nuclear missiles during the current congressional session imperils a vital step toward finally eliminating the world's only true weapon of mass destruction.

Other leading Republican senators have also expressed opposition to the agreement.

The treaty, signed last spring by President Obama and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, would cut the two countries' long-range offensive nukes to 1,550 each, or about 30 percent. The U.S. and Russia have about 95 percent of such weapons in the world.

The pact has now had some 18 hearings by Senate committees.

Earlier this fall the Senate Foreign Relations Committee approved New START, by a vote of 14-4. Three Republicans voted with the majority, including the committee's ranking Republican, Indiana Sen. Richard Lugar.

Ratification requires 67 votes in the full Senate. Supporters of the pact are pressing for ratification by the end of the year, before the Democratic majority shrinks in the new Congress.

Saying failure to ratify the treaty this year "would endanger our national security," Vice President Biden pledged the administration would continue to fight for its consideration before the Senate adjourns this year.

At a Nov. 17 news conference, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, Foreign Relations Committee chair Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., and Sen. Lugar all called for approval in the current session...

The Communists finish the statement with a call for political pressure on Senators to get the deal signed and sealed.
"We say the world's security is endangered if this vital first step on the road to a world without nukes stalls out in the Senate. Contact your senators today and urge New START's ratification in 2010."
While leftist Democrats, RINO Republican sellouts and their communist cheerleaders are urging America to disarm, the Russians and their Chinese allies are working through the Shanghai Cooperation Organization to build an economic and military alliance to far surpass the old Warsaw Pact.

In an increasingly unstable world the US should be re-arming hell for leather, not bending over forwards for its sworn enemies.


Pike River Mine Explosion Update

Hope remains for the 29 miners trapped in the West Coast's Pike River coalmine.

Three days after the explosion that cut communication into the mine, rescuers have yet to enter the shaft because of high concentrations of toxic and explosive gases still in the mine.

Air tests have also confirmed that some form of combustion is still occurring inside the mine, increasing the likelihood of carbon monoxide buildup.

Rescuers and family cling to the hope that all or some of the miners have reached the safety of air pockets in the mine.

From today's NZ Herald

At a 10am media conference, Tasman District police area commander Superintendent Gary Knowles said the names of the miners would be posted on the police website later this morning.

The trapped miners:
Conrad Adams 43, Malcolm Campbell 25, Glen Cruise 35, Alan Dixon 59,
Zen Drew 21, Christopher Duggan 31, Joseph Dunbar 17, Daniel Herg 36,
John Howell 45, David Hoggard 33, Richard Holling 41, Jacob Jonker 47,
William Johannson 49, Ricky Keane 28, Terry Kitchin 41, Samuel Mckay 41,
Michael Monk 23, Stuart Mudge 31, Kane Nieper 33, Peter O'Neil 55,
Milton Osborne 54, Brendan Palmer 27, Benjamin Rockhouse 21, Peter Roger 40, Blair Sims 28, Joshua Ufer 25, Keith Valley 62.

"It's important we start putting putting names to the faces," Mr Knowles said.

He said after three days without contact the situation remained "grave" but he said drilling at the site was continuing and progress was going well.

"We have also been in contact with DOC and DOC have agreed we can cut a path of 2.7km long up to the ventilation site to continue with the sampling," he said.

He said rescuers were also looking at getting a fibre optic cable so that the site could be monitored from basecamp.

Mr Knowles said the rescue team remained on standby and were looking at what sections of the mine they could enter first.

A robot could be used to go inside the tunnel when the opportunity arose, he said.

Testing of the gas levels in the mine was being carried out every half hour.

"We remain optimistic," Mr Knowles said. "But at the end of the day this is a search and recovery operation. We are going to go in and do our best to bring these guys to out."

Pike River CEO Peter Whittall said the team drilling overnight had done a "phenomenal job" and had reached 100 metres of the 162 metres they needed to drill to.

"In the last 10 metres before we get to the scene we will change drilling method to ensure we don't get any sparking," he said.

"We have opportunities to sample gas from that point. We will have an opportunity to put laser imaging gear down the hole.

"We will also be able to put down video camera information and look at anything we are able to see in the hole."


Thanks for all your prayers and messages of concern. All New Zealand is feeling this, but we can only imagine what the trapped men and their families must be going through.
