The real world evidence is stacking up to show that whatever the pointy heads with their computer simulations and mathematical models say, the obsession of Government and the academics who advise them with wind turbines is one of the greatest political and economic balls ups of all time.
Under a target agreed with the EU, Britain is committed within ten years, at astronomic expense to us poor taxpayers, to generating nearly a third of its electricity from renewable sources, mainly through building thousands more wind turbines. As Mrs. Thatcher might have said, "Where there is light, let us bring darkness, where there is beauty, let us create ugliness.
But the penny is finally dropping for almost everyone apart from our politicians and the scientists from the academy of fuckwittery who advise them, that to rely on windmills to keep our lights on is a colossal and very dangerous act of self-deception.
Take, for example, the three 300ft turbine triffids that dominate what used to be one of the most spectacular views over the Ribble valley from the Bury to Burnley Road. These turbines perform so poorly (working at only 15 per cent of its capacity) that the £350,000 government subsidy given to the site operators was almost double the market value of electricity this little wind farm produced last year.
Meanwhile, official figures now released under freedom of information legislation have confirmed that during the record cold spell that kept us freezing from late November until after Christmas, a period when electricity demand was at record levels, a notable feature of the weather was the almost windless stillness. Thus the contribution to our electricity supply made by Britain’s 3,500 turbines was insignificant. It seems to have escaped the notice of the clever, clever, pointy - headed scientists, the short -termist bean counters of the civil service and the egomaniacal politicians that a regular winter weather pattern in Britain means we get way below freezing temperatures and very little wind for several weeks. Nobody can predict at what point in winter it will happen, if at. A couple of years ago the deep freeze did not occur until late February - early March. It is that unpredictability that causes scientists to tilt their noses in the air and sneer derisively, "well it's not scientific."
No it is not scientific. Few things in reality are scientific in the eyes of these tunnel visioned cupid stunts who believe anything that cannot be reduced to a mathematically elegant equation is just superstition and 'magical thinking and may safely be ignored. If we could create reality in the controlled conditions of the laboratory it wouldn't be effing reality would it. It would be a laboratory experiment in controlled conditions.
So thanks to the scientists, the bean counters and the fools who heed their advice, to heat our homes and cook our food from late November to early January we were importing vast amounts of power from nuclear reactors in France. And still the lefties and weirdie beardies bleat about how dangerous nuclear power is.
Wind turbines are so inefficient and expensive in comparison to their output that Holland recently became the first European nation to abandon its EU renewable energy target. The cost benefit of this to taxpayers is it will enable the Dutch government to slash subsidies to wind farm operators by billions of euros. Under international treaties on renewables targets wind farm owners are paid whether or not they are feeding electricity into the grid. The scientists who did the mathematical modelling have for their whole lives been so absorbed in 'doing science' it appears none of them noticed that far from blowing at a consistent speed twenty four hours a day, 365 days a year the wind does not even blow all the time.
So unpopular with the public are wind turbines that our Government in the UK has offered 'bribes' to local communities, in the form of lower taxes and subsidised electricity bills if they accept installation of turbines in their area.
In Scotland, the 800 residents of the beautiful island of Tiree are desperately trying to resist the Oligarchic Collectivist left wing government of the Scottish National Party as it tries to railroad through the legislation that will permit what will be the biggest offshore windfarm in the world, covering 139 square miles off the island's coast. Residents say it will disrupt fishing grounds and destroy their only other economic resource by driving away the tourists who provide much of the revenue for local businesses.
As the weirdie - beardies and tree huggers cream themselves about all the carbon emissions that will be saved (or to be honest shifted elsewhere) they seem to find it easy to overlook the fact that offshore turbines need to be anchored to the sea bed. This is done by scraping the seabed level and planting a huge block of concrete. To plant a wind farm destroys feeding and spawning grounds and drives away sea birds. All these things have their place in the delicate ecological balance.
So riddled with hypocrisy is the green lobbying for wind energy that a recent report which exposed the immense human and ecological catastrophe being inflicted on northern China by the extraction of the rare earth minerals needed to make the giant magnets that every turbine in the West uses to generate its power went unreported by mainstream media.
The case for wind power rests on three great lies.
First is the pretence that turbines are anything other than ludicrously inefficient.
The most glaring misrepresentation employed by the wind industry and by unscrupulous politicans who hope to use fear and panic generated by the anti -carbon Warmageddonists to extort carbon taxes from us is vastly to exaggerate the output of turbines. This is done by deliberately talking only in terms of their 'capacity', as if this was what they actually produce rather than it's being the total amount of power they have the capability of producing if operated constantly in optimum conditions.
The point about wind, of course, is that it is constantly varying in speed (sic), so that the output of turbines averages out at barely a quarter of their optimal capacity. This means that the estimated 1,000 megawatts (1 gigawatt) all those 3,500 turbines currently operating in Britain feed on average into the grid is derisory: no more than the output of a single, medium-sized conventional power station. Take the total energy needs of Britain and were we to try to meet it all from wind power as the sandal wearers suggest we would need about 175,000 turbines and a much more reliable source of wind than we have now. Perhaps this is why the government is frantically trying to persuade us to eat more beans and cabbage.
Also, as wind turbines increase in number (the Government wants to see 10,000 more in the next few years) it will, quite farcically, become necessary to build a dozen or more nuclear, gas, oil or coal fired power stations, running all the time and emitting CO2, nuclear waste and lots of other environmental nasties, simply to provide instant back-up for when the wind drops.
The second great lie about wind power is the pretence that it is a cheap and efficient way of getting free energy from nature and not a ludicrously expensive way to produce electricity. No one would dream of generating electricity from wind turbines unless they were guaranteed a huge government subsidy.This is why the contemptible Labour government created the Renewables Obligation Certificate subsidy scheme, paid for through consumers electricity bills, whereby owners of wind turbines earn, over and above the price of electricity they feed in to the grid, an additional £49 for every 'megawatt hour' they produce, and twice that sum for offshore turbines.
The Renewables Obligation Certificate subsidy is why the wind bonanza, almost entirely dominated in Britain by French, German, Spanish and other foreign-owned firms, is set to become one of the greatest scandals of our age.
The third great lie is that this industry is somehow making a vital contribution to 'saving the planet' by cutting our emissions of CO2 - this is simply untrue. What other industry gets a public subsidy equivalent to 100 or even 200 per cent of the value of what it produces? We may not be aware of just how much we are pouring into the pockets of the wind developers, because our bills hide this from us — but as ever more turbines are built, this could soon be adding hundreds of pounds a year to our bills. And the electricity we burn in our homes will continue to be generated in reliable, controllable fossil fuel and nuclear power stations that keep running if they are supplied with fuel no matter what the weather is doing outside.
A recently opened wind farm in the River Thames estuary was hailed by Warmageddonists and politicians as the world's largest offshore windfarm. It cost £800million to construct and make operational. We were told that its 'capacity' was 300 megawatts and when working at optimum efficiency it would provide 'green' power for tens of thousands of homes. What we were not told was that 300 megawatts it is 'optimal' output were the wind to blow unvaryingly at a constant, perfect speed for twenty four hours a day; The actual output in real world conditions will average only a mere 80 megawatts, a tenth of that supplied by a gas-fired power station. For this overpriced, underperforming
pile of White Elephant shit white elephant, we poor punters will be paying a subsidy of £60million a year, or £1.5billion over the 'optimal' 25-year lifespan of the turbines.
The third great lie of the wind propagandists is that this industry is somehow making a vital contribution to 'saving the planet' by cutting our emissions of CO2. Even if we accept that curtailing use of fossil fuels could change the Earth's climate, the CO2 reduction achieved by wind turbines is so insignificant that one large, offshore windfarm saves considerably less in a year than is given off over the same period by a single jumbo jet flying daily between Britain and America. At the same time the windfarm operators will have done irreparable damage to fish and sea food breeding grounds thus disrupting a vital 'renewable' food source.
The construction of the turbines generates enormous CO2 emissions; in the mining and smelting of the metals used, the carbon-intensive cement needed for their huge concrete foundations, the building of miles of road or construction of special barges and rafts often needed to move them to the site, the installation of miles of overhead or underwater cables to get the generated current from these remote locations to the grid and, in the case of the most viable sites for onshore wind generation the releasing of immense quantities of CO2 and Methane locked up in the peat bogs.
We must take into account too the output from Gas and coal fired power stations that must be kept running 24 hours a day just to provide back-up for the unpredictability of the wind. So savings in CO2 emissions from wind power are illusory, mere scientific (a.k.a. statistical sleight of hand and mathematical jiggery pokery. Once implemented in real world conditions rather than in the mathematically modelled environment where most 'scientific testing is carried out nowadays, they vanish completely.
In spite of all this easily observable real - world evidence Governments have charged ahead with idiotic wind power schemes on the strength of these massive self-deceptions and the dodgy advice of academics and 'scientists' who have never actually worked in the power generation industry and in many cases have seldom left the University campus or the laboratory except to travel to taxpayer funded jollies in exotic locations where they discuss with others of this self styled international elite how the rest of us should live our lives.
According to the electricity industry, the people who actually do the job, we will then need to spend another £100billion on building those conventional power stations to provide back-up — all of which adds up to £240billion by 2020, or just over £1,000 a year for every household in the land. For this our politicians are quite happy to see our countryside and the seas around our coasts smothered in vast arrays of giant industrial machines, all to produce an amount of electricity that could be provided by conventional power stations at a tenth of the cost.
The flight from reality triggered by fear and panic mongering climate scientists is truly one of the greatest human follies of the post industrial age.
But what turns it from a crazed fantasy to a potential catastrophe is that we know Britain will face a huge shortfall in its electricity supplies in the next few years, when we see the shutdown of conventional power stations, which currently meet nearly 40 per cent of our electricity needs and the older Nuclear power sites some of which are nearing fifty years old having only been designed for an operational life of half that. All but two of our ageing nuclear power stations are nearing the end of their useful life, with little chance of them being replaced for many years.
Six of our large coal-fired stations will be forced to close under an EU anti-pollution directive, and yet our Government, paying far to much attention to the whining of Warmageddonists and ignoring the voice of common sense is doing its best to ensure that we build no more. We cannot realistically hope to make up more than a fraction of the resulting energy gap solely with wind turbines, for blatantly obvious reason that wind is an intermittent and unreliable energy source.
One likely result of the governmental paralysis in the face of green whining and bureaucratic meddling from the New World Order representatives in Brussels is we will end up relying on politically unreliable countries such as Russia, Libya and Algeria for oil and gas supplies.
What we are seeing, in short, is the price we are beginning to pay for the past two decades, during which our energy policy has become hopelessly skewed by the hysterical fear and panic mongering of tree hugging weirdie beardies and politicised by the academic tax eaters lobby; first in persuading our politicians to switch from coal and not to build any more nuclear power stations, and then to fall for the quixotic dream that we could gamble our country’s future on 'free' and 'clean' power provided by nature. Tilting at Windmills seldom results in a good outcome as Miguel de Cervantes hero showed us three hundred years ago.
All over the EU political parties are waking up to the catastrophe towards which this insane denial of reality is leading us. The Danes, who have built more wind turbines per head than anyone, have realised the idiocy of a policy that has given them the highest electricity prices in Europe, while they have to import much of their power from abroad, notably sensible Germany's coal fired and nuclear generators.
In Spain, their rush for wind and solar power has proved a national disaster. So enthusiastic for 'green' power were Spain's political leaders they signed into law a green subsidy system that pays solar operators for the electricity they feed into the grid AT NIGHT. In Germany, having built more turbines than any other country in the world, they are now facing a similar shortfall to Britain and are in a frenzy of building new coal-fired stations .
In Holland, meanwhile, they have now put up two fingers to the EU by slashing all their renewables subsidies. The Dutch are canny people, they know there is little to be gained from paying offshore companies for not generating electricity. It's interesting to not how in places where the government has said, "You generate the electricity, we'll meter it and pay you for what we get," there has been little interest in setting up wind and solar power operations. Operators are only interested in working in business environments where they are paid for notional amounts of electricity that might be generated under optimal conditions.
Only in Britain is our political class still so imprisoned in its infatuation with wind that it is prepared to pursue this acidhead dream of a green utopia.
Our Governments, the United Nations and the academic community have embarked on one of the most reckless gambles in the history of western civilisation. First they gambled the family silver on the idea that we can look to the unpredicatable wind to provide nearly a third of the electricity we need to keep our economy running. Now having lost heavily on their first series of bets they are plunging us into debt in order to throw more money at the bookies of China, India and the international financial community in the hope that in its next race the three legged horse they bet on will suddenly find a way to compete with tried and trusted champions in spite of its obvious handicap.
Researchers Discover How to Use Living Plants to Generate Electricity.
Most of the hyped green energy solutions to generate electricity from wind or sunshine are so obviously flawed the only thing that makes them economically viable is that governments offer huge subsidies to generators. This in turn makes the sustainables so expensive that consumers cannot afford the intermittent energy they produce.
Wind farms paid £43million to stand idle because on windy days they produce more power than the National Grid could handle
But you can't switch the coal, gas ans nuclear plants off becausethe wind can drop very suddenly. John Constable, of the Renewable Energy Foundation has said too many wind farms have been built too quickly, without the infrastructure to cope with the power. Officials are also pandering to suppliers running the Government’s ‘pet technology’, he said, allowing them to charge whatever they wanted to switch off, he said.
Thanks To Global Warming Policy It's Going To Be a Long Cold Winter For Many
Those of us who were intelligent enough to point out the scientific fallacies behind the global warming scare and the idiotic failure of logic on the part of politiciansbfar too ready to believe the scaremongers and pursue a policy that made developed nations in northern Europe reliant on an unpredictable and uncontrollable energy source like wind for energy are vindicated as Europe braces itself for power shortages this winter due to coal and oil fired power stations being closed to 'reduce CO2 emissions'.
What if man-made climate change is all in the mind?
It Is Not Carbon Dioxide but Water That Will Destroy Civilisation
The science is settled right? WRONG! The mathematical models (the science) on which the predictions of catastrophe were based have been discredited, the now infamous hocky stick graph has been reduced to matchwood and its creator discredited after it was proved he simply ignored any data which did not contribute to the result he wanted or needed to keep the research grants flowing. So was climate change a fantasy created by scientists to serve their interests
About three years ago we reported it was water rather than carbon dioxide that would pose the biggest threat to western civilisation in the twenty first century. Those of us fortunate enough to live in developed societies are profligate in our use of water, forgetting that while we can drain reservoirs and aquifers quickly it takes a ling time for nature to refill them. Las Vegas is the first city in the drought is south west of the USA to dry up, other heavily populated areas will follow quickly
We were bullied into buying diesel cars to help the environment. Now experts admit this ‘green’ fuel is killing thousands of us
Remember all that fuss a few years ago about how much better for the environment it would be if we all drove diesel cars instead of petrol. As usual, the scientists couldn't see the smoke for the fumes and politicians only had the interests of oil companies and car makers in mind. Now it turns out diesel is worse for the envronment and our health after all. Now what did they call those of us who said that was the case all along? Conspiracy theorists or something.

By Andrew M. Seaman (Reuters Health) – Overweight children are just as likely as thin children to have celiac disease, a new study confirms. It's a common misconception - even among many doctors - that celiac disease is limited to people who are underweight. “Being overweight certainly does not exclude the diagnosis, as this paper shows,” said Dr. Peter Green, director of the Celiac Disease Center at Columbia University Medical Center in New York City, who was not involved in the new study. Between 0.5 percent and 1 percent of people living in the developed world are thought to have celiac disease, in which gluten in food triggers a damaging immune response in the small intestines.

Hours after a suspected Ebola patient in Sacramento was found to be free of the virus, a second person hospitalized in California's capital was reported by public health officials on Friday to be undergoing evaluation and testing for the disease. The second patient was admitted to Kaiser Permanente South Sacramento Medical Center on Wednesday, a day before the earlier patient came to light, and like the previous case is considered to be at low risk of having contracted the deadly virus, the hospital said in a statement. There was no immediate word on whether the two cases were linked or whether the second patient had traveled recently in West Africa, the epicenter of the worst Ebola epidemic on record, as had the first. The previous patient was transferred to the University of California-Davis Medical Center from another hospital in Sacramento on Thursday after exhibiting unspecified Ebola-like symptoms, health officials said.

By Maria Caspani NEW YORK (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - For Kate Bornstein, the American author and pioneer gender activist, this is a pivotal time in history for transgender people as the rigid concept of two sexes is challenged by a growing number of individuals who don't conform to either. "That's very different from their parents or even their older siblings," she told the Thomson Reuters Foundation in a phone interview. "In the early 1990s, there might be one 'trans' student in six or seven colleges and now the audience is filled with female to male...or really cool gender queer (people)," Bornstein, who does not identify as male or female, says in a new film about her life. In the United States and beyond, a growing movement views gender as a complex, mainly psychological phenomenon in which a person's external anatomy is no longer the defining factor.

These lobbyists, who have no official status but plenty of money available for 'hospitality' to help them enlist the support of corrupt officials – but more and more often these days, prominent scientists, 'special advisers' and former politicians who are happy to sell their reputation.

The NHS doctors who get cash from healthcare firms for patient referrals
Open Letter to the New Finance Minister of Greece Yanis Varoufakis
An investigation revealed incentives, often worth tens of thousands of pounds, have been offered to doctors by private healthcare companies in exchange for referring patients to their hospitals. The British Medical Journal reported claims that the doctors’ regulator, the General Medical Council (GMC), failed to act on a warning in 2012 that the practice of offering incentives was “widespread, particularly in London, and significant in value”.
(This letter ran on the following notable blogs: David Stockman's ContraCorner, Dmitry Orlov's Blog, and The StealthFlation Blog: Dear Yanis, As an ardent admirer, with the utmost respect for what you have put forward and accomplished to date, I humbly offer my thoughts for your consideration.
When Politicians Don't Have A Clue How To Deal With A Problem They Pretend It Does Not Exist.
Mass Immigration, Islamification of European Societies, extremist terrorism, the creation of ghettos in western cities and widespread civil unrest. And yet the political, media and academic elities still resuse to acknowledge that their 'open door' immigration policies are causing major problems.
Regulatory Cooperation’ and TTIP: Opening The Floodgates For Corporate Plunder
A new leak concerning the talks around the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) indicates that the floodgates could be opened even further for corporate influence.

The European Union May Be on the Verge of Regime Collapse
Europe won the Cold War and looked set to become the global superpower. So where did it all go wrong?
Not long after the Berlin Wall fell a quarter of a century ago, the Soviet Union collapsed, the United States squandered its peace dividend in an attempt to maintain global dominance, and Europe quietly became more prosperous, more integrated, and more of a player in international affairs. Between ...
The age of financial privacy is over
Yes you read that right. The fascist regime in the USA has usurped to itself the right to raid bank accoutns anywhere is the world. At the moment they are only stealing money by way of tax demands from people who were born on US soil even if those people have not lived in the USA since childhood and have never be employed by a US business.
Climategate, the sequel: How we are STILL being tricked with flawed data on global warming.
Daily Stirrer occasional contributor Graham Lear returns to one of our favourite themes, the climate change hoax, part of a program of scaremongering being engineered by enemies if freedom and democracy in the higher echelons of scoiety. This about it, who is pushing the myth of catatrophic climate change being caused by Carbon Dioxide from human activity?
Transhumanism - Elitist and Mad Scientist Collaboration To Turn Us Into Automatons.
Transhumanism: there are two definitions, the production of human animal hybrids with the aim of producing superhuman creatures and the merging of humans with machines as a shortcut to creating programmable decives with human instinct, logic and congnitive skills. Neither promises any benefit to humankind in the view of those of us who believe only the natural human being can fulfill individual potential.
From Keynesian Shangri-La To Outright War
Over the last few weeks drum beats could be heard signalling the coming of troops from abroad to lay waste to any foe ahead of them. However, unlike what we first conjure up as troops from an opposing force made up of men and weapons. This battlefield is being waged in the either of the currency markets.
Everything You Need To Know About The Greek Crisis.
Those people who think I have suddenly become a right wing extremist because I have been supporting UKIP's anti - EU, anti - Global Government stance and their resistance to the political mainstreams war on European cultures by be surprised to know that I was hoping for the Greek General Election to deliver a convincing victory for left-wing party Syriza.
Greece Votes On Whether Its People Have Any Future

They are voting in a general election which could result in Greece trying to renegotiate the terms of its bailout with international lenders and even quitting the EU if the expected victory for hard line left wing party Syriza.
The leader of Syriza, Alexis Tsipras, has pledged to write off much of Greece's huge debt and revoke austerity measures ...
Democracy: Does It have A Future Or Has Global Totalitarianism Won?
The General Election in Greece (January 2014) could have much wider effects than most elections in small nation, the vote could decide the future of the European Union and have a major breaing on whether democracy can survive the push towards government by a global, corporate oligarchy. It look like being an interesting few months if the anti - EU party wins as polls suggest they will.
People Are Waking Up To The Fact That The European Union Is On The Fast Track To Fascism.
Greece has a General Election and it looks as if the anti - EU, extreme left Syriza party will win comfortably. In previous elections that went against the Euronazis in Brussels, the democracy hating bureaucrats simply told the sovereign government of the member nation that the vote was not acceptable. If their try to overturn the Greek result in the same way it will trigger massive civil unrest.
German Anti-Islamisation Marches: What the Mainstream Media Doesn’t Want You to Know
For people who rely for news on mainstream media, what is increasingly known in Germany as the ‘liar press’ (Luegenpresse), the narrative that the racist, anti Islam protestors have turned nasty might stick. And when the reports throw in salacious details about the former leader of this movement and his colourful past, or the tragic death of an immigrant man who was killed shortly after a demonstration in Dresden last week, the pro immigrant propaganda starts to look like the voice of reason.
So Who's Making Up Innuendos About Leon Brittan
The rumor mill has gone to warp speed following the death of alleged dossier - shredder Leon Brittan. Bizarrely his friend Lord Deben seems to think the various allegations raging from Brittan's role in covering up the activities of a Westminster paedophile ring, to his actual involvement in sexual abuse of children only originated recently.
The Death Of Democracy - Are The Elites Running Scared From Public Opinion
When did democracy go out of fashion. I don't remember voting on whether we wanted to give up our civil liberties or be ruled by a dictatorship of unelected bureaucrats from Brussels, but that is where we are heading, along with the other free nations of Europe. And the USA, so-called land of the free is further along the road to fascism than Europe.
Google’s Eric Schmidt Greases Skids For Internet Brain Chip Google CEO Eric Schmidt greased the skids for an Internet brain chip during a speech at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland earlier today when he predicted the end of the world wide web as an external concept.

Why the war on CO2 has done far more harm than good
Warmageddonists send a lot of time screeching and scaremongering about the potpentially catastrophic outcomes of increased atmospheric CO2 levels, exaggerating their claims wildly in order to frighten people into supporting their war on the oil and coal industries. Policies formulated to tackle the imaginary threat of anthropogenic climate change have ...
Researchers Discover How to Use Living Plants to Generate Electricity.
Most of the hyped green energy solutions to generate electricity from wind or sunshine are so obviously flawed the only thing that makes them economically viable is that governments offer huge subsidies to generators. This in turn makes the sustainables so expensive that consumers cannot afford the intermittent energy they produce.

Je Suis Saussice (in defence of your right to eat pork sausages)
Just as we showed solidarity with the publishers of Charlie Hebdo magazine after twelve staff were murdered by religious extremists and defended the right of citizens in democratic nations to criticize religion by saying "Je Suis Charlie" so we are now making a stand in support of the freedom to eat sausages (which is an abomination to Allah apparently,) by saying "Je Suis Saussice".
Trade Treaties Fast Track Not A Done Deal, The People Will Stop It
The fast tracking of two trade treaties, TTIP and TPP that the corporate gofor, President Barack Hussein Obama, is pushing in the hope that the deals, will enable him to complete the task he was shoehorned into office for by transferring control of national laws from elected governments to corporate lawyers, looks to be stalling.
Prescription painkillers’ overuse has become ‘silent epidemic’ in USA, UK and Europe.

More Global Warming Hot Air, As Climate Fundamentalists Continue Inflating a False Reality
We’re told this week that Washington’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Climatic Data Center (NOAA) had finally crunched its numbers for 2014, and Al Gore is a very happy man, as are the armies of amateur climate experts who take government scientific announcements as gospel.
Could 'DNA editing' lead to designer babies?
Designer babies, human / animal hybrids, these things have been in wet dream territory for scientists for a long time. But now due to techniques such as DNA editing, they are getting worryingly close to reality. And as has been demonstrated many times, scientists have zero uderstanding of where the ethical boundaries lie.
We said 2014 was the warmest year on record… but we’re only 38% sure we were right - NASA
Prince Andrew allegations: Suday Mirror Asks: Is this the London house where 'sex slave' says she romped with him?
More Global Warming Hot Air, As Climate Fundamentalists Continue Inflating a False Reality
Nasa admits this means it is far from certain that 2014 set a record at all. Does that mean 97% of climate experts are 62% sure they are wrong? The thing with half-truths is that they generate a glorious fog, but it has no substance. Ask of the spin-cloud a couple of sensible questions and the narrative collapses.
Believe The Phoney Narrative Or Be Branded a Conspiracy Theorist.
Right now the west is in big trouble, the move led by Russia and China to dump the petrodollar as global currency has provoked the Americans to lead the wesern allies into an economic war that we cannot win. Why not? One word: debt. A shooting war is the only option but it's by no means certain the allies would win that.
Seventy Years Down The Line And We Have Come Back To Appeasement As A Means To Peace.
As a spate of increasingly bloody and violent attacks on civilized values and the democratif freedoms of the western nations (free speech for example) continues to cause revulsion among the general population, our spineless leader are calling on us to be tolerant. The cowardly hypocrites who lead us may be ready to surrender, but anger is mounting in the cities and towns.
Russia throws down the gauntlet: energy supply to Europe cut off; petrodollar abandoned as currency war escalates
Europe’s Intensifying Immigration Debate
There are some big moves taking place on the global stage that you need to know about, as this could all lead to World War III. Yesterday Russia cut off its natural gas supply to Europe, "plunging the continent into an energy crisis 'within hours' as a dispute with Ukraine escalated," the Daily Mail reported. "This morning, gas companies in Ukraine said that Russia had completely cut off their supply. Six countries reported a complete shut-off of Russian gas shipped via Ukraine today, in a sharp escalation of ...
In an absolutely gobsmacking psychological meltdown and an unparalleled display of bourgeois self hate, the former Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt demonstrated how wide the gap between the political and academic elite and reality has become in the materially advanced democracies. He also made himself an early fron runner for the title "cupid stunt of the century.

‘Uncaged Corporate Parrots’ Of The Political Elite and The GMO False Narrative
Earth’s CO2 Levels Pass Global Warming ‘Milestone', Nothing Happens - Daily Caller.
The Environment Secretary in the UK Coalition Government, Elizabeth Truss has argued that genetically modified (GM) food should be grown in Britain because it is more ‘eco-friendly’. She adds that steps should be taken to speed up this development. Her statements come as little surprise to many because Truss’s predecessor, Owen Paterson, was also a staunch supporter of GM technology.
After two decades of panic stricken scientists and screeching lefties wailing about the catatrophe that would ensue once the concentration of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere passed 400 parts per million, that figure was reached in December 2014. No islands sank, no ice caps disappeared, no cities were incinerated. Which is pretty much what those of us who recognize the science of scaremongering when we see it predicted would happen.
Who’s a Charlie? France cracks down on free speech in order to defend it
In grim and supreme irony, French police have fanned out to suppress free speech in order to defend it.“France ordered prosecutors around the country to crack down on hate speech, anti-Semitism and glorifying terrorism, announcing Wednesday that 54 people had been arrested for those offenses” since last week, the Associated Press reports.
Labour's Cockfish Reveals How Mainfesto Will Piss You Off.
All three main parties in the UK General Election are campaigning from a Politically Correct Consensus (i.e. Control Freak) platform. But whenm it comes to politically correct control freakery, Labour will always outdo the others. The main early thut of their campaign is a promise to criminalise sugary snacks and breakfast cereals, fatty foods and some fizzy drinks. And they're serious, they have handed the job of selling this idiocy to The Cockfish of British politics.
Charlie Hebdo: No Wonder There Are Conspiracy Theories
With a little distance between us and the Charlie Hebdo killings, questions remain unanswered and are likely to remain so. These questions inspire conspiracy theories, which in turn trigger authority worshippers to dismiss anyone who asks legitimate questions as 'right wing nut jobs'...
Economist: World Leaders Will Exploit Charlie Hebdo to Eliminate Internet Privacy
Economist Martin Armstrong warns that the twin attacks in France will be used by world leaders to push for restrictions on Internet privacy and the total elimination of encrypted communications.

Oxford University Bans All Things Pig Related In Support Of Free Speech
When does being reasonable and open minded become cowardice? When academics who pride themselves on intellectual detachment cave in to threats from extremists and try to pass off their pitiful weakness by pretending they are showing sensitivity to the feelings of minorities.

While the world has been looking the other way, Boko Haram has been conquering Nigeria

Insane Science Pushing The Earth Towards Ecocide.
At the Daily Stirrer we have suspected it for a log time, science is insane, a game for the ethically challenged and sociopathic to compete to be first to develop a new plague, or a death ray, or to trash the enviromnent in pursuit of political power or corporate profits for their paymasters. There's even a name for what they are doing now, Ecocide.
A Republic Always Decays Into Oligarchy. Here's Why
Almost a rehash of Schumpeter's warning, that capital alwaysd contains the seeds of its own destruction while socialism always leads to fascism. I guess the old Austrian economist was trying to tel us the only thing that works is chaos. I can live with that.
France sees dozens of anti-Muslim incidents.
No doubt our leaders and the media will condemn the backlash from ordinary French people to the Charlie Hebdo massacre. Random attacks on decent Muslims are wrong. but how long do the elites expect us to keep showing tolerance when they have done nothing about a long standing problem.
The Debt Ponzi Deconstructed
Most of us are familiar with the concept of GDP as a measure of economic health. If GDP increases, the myth goes, then the economy has grown. It is a measure of how effectively or efficiently we are utilizing our assets to generate wealth. The idea is that the more I invest the more notional returns I can generate. Unfortunately GDP is a false economic measure, it only measures the rate at which money churns around the economic system.
In The War On Terror, Freedom Is Not Winning
While we would like to write about more positive things, protecting democracy and free speech, guiding people towards healthy lifestyles, how we the punters can save the planet (especially from the idiocies of the Warmageddonist lobby) and so on, we find far too much of our time is spent trying to get the truth about important issues in front of readers. Mainstream media has abandoned news reporting in favour of simply repeating government and corporate propaganda. Terrorism is one issue on which you will only finds out facts from new media.
Why Iceland Recovery Is Being Ignored In Mainstream News
Iceland is a small country with less that half a million people so is not a good comparison with Britain. It's recovery from near bankruptcy in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis however is due to the rejection of politically correct, globalist politics so in that light it serves to illustrate that to suggest Britain (60 million people) cannot survive outside the EU is just globalist scaremongering.

The Strange Case Of The Footballer And The Witch Hunt.
In 2011 Sheffied United footballer Ched Evans was jailed for rape, a crime he has always insisted he did not commit. Now Evans is out, having served only helf his sentence.

The Euro Is Closer To Collapse Than Anyone Cares To Admit.
A victory for the anti EU Syriza Party in the Greek elections later this month would lead to a Greek default on its massive sovereign debts. This in turn would mean Greece would have to quit the EU. And that would have massive repercussions for the major European economies and probably precipitate a global economic crisis (like the ongoing global depression isn't enough). It is going to be interesting to watch this one play out.

As a wave of comment on internet news suites about the similarities between the disappearance of an AirAsia Airbus, flight QZ8501 on a routine trip from Jave to singapore and the equally inexplicable disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 in the same area en route from Kuala Lumpur nine months ago, it was quite predictable that while there remains no trace of MH370, this time floating debrius and bodies have been found at the alleged crasah site.

Will 2014 Go Down As The Year Propaganda Replaced Information?
Those of us who pay attention will have noticed that 2014 has topped all others for the manout of spin and propaganda spread by mainstream news organisations and government departments but also news took on a new aspect.

Don’t believe American lies about Russia
What we are seeing in western media about the currency and oil price war being waged against Russia by the Obama administration in America is not only a very subjective version of events being presented by Washington spin doctors, it ignores the fact that though the USA and EU may have imposed sanctions on Russia, China, India, Iran, Turkey, all African and south American nations and most of south east Asia are still doing business with Moscow.

Climate change has become a more fanatical and more dangerous religion that fundamentalist Christianity, Islam or Zionism.

Obesity pill to ‘replace treadmill’ being developed by Harvard University
A magic pill which burns away excess body fat has been one of the wet dreams of mad scientists for decades. Such a pill is now being developed at Harvard University. Researchers claim it could one ‘replace the treadmill.’ (This is daft as we still need exercise to maintain a healthy heart, muscles and bones.
Everything The Science Whores Told You About Eating Fat Was A Lie.
We have been telling you so for years, but at last the world seems to be cathing up with The Daily Stirrer. Another independent study confirms that the scientists ('A sack of rogues bought and paid for with corporate gods' to paraphrase Burns) have been lying about the health risks of eating saturated fat. It's process vegetable fat, created in laboratories by scientists and other synthesized foods that damage human health.
What Would George Orwell Think Of The Screeching Left's Horror At Plans To Shrink The State.
In part one of his classic social commentary, The Road To Wigan Pier, George Orwell wrote of the grinding poverty and appalling living conditions endured by people in industrial areas. The second part, which is more revevant to the 21st Century is a rant against the superiority of the upper class 'Fabian' socialists who have hijacked the Labour movement and whose Paternal Liberalism is in almost all ways more repugnant that the uncaring attitude of the old elite.
What Will It Take to Get You to Swallow GMO and Nanotech Foods?

Evolution: Theory, Fact or Fiasco?
Much as I have faith in Charles Darwin's Theory Of Evolution as a feasible explanation of how diverse species originate (The Origin Of The Species) it annoys me when science fans insist "Evolution is not a theory, its a fact." Especially annoying of course is when they cite evolution to explain the origin of life on earth or the development of human intelligence. Even more annoying is their assumption that anyone questioning them is a young Earth creationist. Here are a few thoughts on some of evolution theory's inconsistencies ...
Why Food Sovereignty Should Not Be Handed To GMO Biotech Corporations
Most of the GM produce that is finding its way into the human food chain has been modified to make it resistant to herbicides (weed killer) and pesticides (insect killer) that are deadly to humans - just look at the warnings on a packet of garden weed killer or domestic fly spray if you want proof of that. And remember in bulk food production we are talking about industrial quantities of industrial strength toxins. Scientists on the corporate payroll assure us ...
Are Humans Becoming Extinct

some scientists, Guy McPherson included, down at the Climate Change conference who fear that climate disruption is so serious, with so many self-reinforcing feedback loops already in play, that humans are in the process of causing our own extinction.
