Deep Purple ~ 1972
I hereby dedicate this spin to myself, cause I sure am lazy today.
The line between state-owned Gazprom and the Russian state is often blurry. The monopoly's primary activity is selling natural gas in Europe at market rates to subsidize energy prices domestically. Several board members wear two hats and also work in government; for example, Dmitri A. Medvedev, the hand-picked successor of President Vladimir V. Putin, is chairman of Gazprom.Keep your eyes on Turkmenistan
North America as we know it has changed dramatically since November 4, 2008.
First came the election of an unknown; a man only whose globalist elite masters know where he was born and in which direction he will be taking the liberty-loving United States of America.
Less than one month later, the proud Dominion of Canada is being laid siege to by an opposition-led coalition of the left. Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, elected with an increased number of seats only six weeks ago, has a date with destiny at 9:30 this morning.
A beleaguered looking Harper, who addressed Canadians last night on television, promised to use "every legal means" to stop the Opposition's move to unseat his minority Conservative government next week. It is his only means to end the threat of this overnight attempt at Government-by-Coalition.
In other words, Harper will be asking the governor general this morning to suspend Parliament until next month--giving him time to come up with the stimulus package, his power-lusting opponents not his electors, say he hasn't delivered quickly enough.
Were it not for this drastic change in power for which nobody voted, it would have been laughable that New Democrat Leader Jack Layton, the man called "the Barack Obama of Canada" by colleagues, had tried unsuccessfully to horn in for his "cut of the television air time pie". (GlobeandMail.com, Dec. 3, 2008).
History is being rewritten before our very eyes by the Socialists of two nations.
Long after we're all gone, what has happened in a short time-span before Christmas 2008 will surely give pause to the historians.
In more temperate times, the historians would be forgiven for mistaking the latest James Bond film Quantum of Solace detailing the work of a moviedom George Soros and Maurice Strong as art imitating real life.
But only in the movies and not in real life do dramatic things happen overnight.
In reality, what has happened here and in the United States was long in the making.
Gradually over time, we elected politicians who cared not for the ecosystem of country Constitutions in comparison to their power lust. Somehow we didn't seem to notice when government no longer worked for us, but us for them.
The average person was kept too busy coming up with the rent or the mortgage, too busy wondering why their children were learning not reading, writing and arithmetic, but how to become effective global citizens.
Politicians elected each term, by and large, got worse and worse until we reached a stage where they came not with altruism and leadership guiding their moral compass, but with teams of lawyers who could trash constitutions no matter how noble or time-honoured.
Along the way, we one day reached the level where civic politicians got to be very high handed. Instead of us being able to tell them to return from federal and international issues to take out the garbage, they told us to take out the garbage, and to put it in an increasing assembly of recycling bins.
The only real "change" politicians made manifest is the one where they no longer choose to hide their true intentions. The rats in the farmers' barns no longer dive for cover in the loft when the farmer comes in.
They stand there boldly ready to attack the farmer and anyone else who questions their self-imposed authority.
It has reached a tipping point where politicians no longer feel a duty to serve the people, but only themselves and each other.
They are just like the "robber barons", the term Wikipedia says that "revived in the 19th century in the United States as a reference to businessman and bankers who dominated their respected industries and amassed huge personal fortunes, typically as a direct result of pursuing various anti-competitive or unfair business practices."
One long ago day, Government went out and began funding environmentalists, not true-at-heart ones who conserve the land against urban blight and pollution, but radical environmentalists like Greenpeace, who over time became as rich and powerful as any of the robber barons.
Governments caved into environmentalist demands on eminent domain issues that confiscated land on the glib alibi it was to protect endangered species, never recognizing human beings as endangered species.
Government catered more and more to the environmentalists and the unions that cheered them on until the car industry could no longer manufacture "gas-guzzling SUVs" and was driven along the road to the dead end of bankruptcy.
Meanwhile, our politicians skipped off into a safe zone where they are no longer held accountable, morphing us into a global economy where decisions are made globally. "Think globally, act locally" became the mantra of the moment decades ago. That "safe area" they ran to includes the model of the European Union, whose administrators choose to keep going when members ask them to slow down because they don't understand what they are even voting on.
The little people who matter most watched the protest movement abandon the arena. When it mattered most for them to be there, they had scattered.
In Canada, we face the lies of Government-by-Coalition. In the US, what has been described as "the first Coalition President in 75 years".
Both lie to the people of both nations.
The debut of Barack Obama has nothing to do with the colour of his skin, or even the station in his life. The world is not kind enough to produce political miracles. Obama's decent brother, George Hussein Onyango, struggling in poverty back in Kenya is living proof of that.
"Canada's Barack Obama" Jack Layton offers no true change for Canadians, his long record as a self-serving career politicians proves it.
Beyond both these arrogant activists, we all find out too late that the North American Union is just another term for One World Government.
Socialism, advocated by both Obama and Layton, has sucked the soul out of humanity wherever it was ever attempted, but that's the road North America is now careening down.
Heaven help the people of both betrayed nations.

With the multiplicity of terrorist attacks perpetrated recently by deviant and fanatic individuals, the General Secretariat of the Organisation of the Islamic Conference (OIC) has noticed a tendency of a section of the media, to interpose the word "Islam" in reporting these incidences.Who you gonna believe, Tovarich Dhimmi? Your own eyes, or the peaceful, tolerant, compassionate General Secretariat of the OIC?
The "Union of the Comoros" is the only state in Africa to be a member of the African Union, Francophonie, Organisation of the Islamic Conference, Arab League, and Indian Ocean Commission, among other international organizations. However, it has had a troubled history since independence in 1975, marked by an inordinate number of coups d'état.OH.

In light of the Islamophobic and hate-filled programming on WBT 1110 AM’s Jeff Katz show, a boycott is being called for all advertisers that have a financial relationship with Jeff Katz. Since the arrival of Jeff Katz at WBT there seems to be a move to profit off ignorance and hate at the expense of the Muslim Community. We are calling on people of faith, conscience and decency to boycott those that financially support this purveyor of hate. The boycott can be enacted by signing this petition on-line (or paper), and/or calling the businesses and not shopping with the advertisers. This petition is being sponsored by the Islamic Political Party of America (IPPA) and is inspired by the U.N.’s ‘Stop the Hate’ campaign.Apparently Katz was hastily replaced by some dull & obedient snivleing lefty dhimmi
Two olive branches buried by a Minoan-era eruption of the volcano on the island of Thera (modern-day Santorini) have enabled precise radiocarbon dating of the catastrophe to 1613 BC, with an error margin of plus or minus 10 years, according to two researchers who presented conclusions of their previously published research during an event on Tuesday at the Danish Archaeological Institute of Athens.1600 B.C.

Just weeks after President George W Bush signed the Order creating a new US military command dedicated to Africa, AFRICOM, events on the mineral-rich continent have erupted that suggest a major agenda of the incoming Barack Obama presidency to focus US resources, military and other, on dealing with the Democratic Republic of Congo, the oil-rich Gulf of Guinea, the oil-rich Darfur region of southern Sudan and increasingly the Somali "pirate threat" to sea lanes in the Red Sea and Indian Ocean.Ever hear of a COBALT BOMB? Me neither, till now.....
A cobalt bomb, a type of salted bomb, is a nuclear weapon originally proposed by physicist Leó Szilárd, who suggested that it would be capable of destroying all life on Earth. The weapon's tamper would be made of ordinary cobalt metal, which would be transmuted into the radioactive isotope 60Co, producing deadly fallout.2003: Theft of Cobalt from Iraq
Under investigation is how American surveillance of the area, now under the control of the 82nd Airborne Division, failed to spot villagers entering the testing site with heavy vehicles to dismantle three of the poles, or towers, for scrap, leaving heavy tire tracks in the desert.
One of the cobalt capsules was found by American troops on Oct. 6 lying in the yard of a villager's house in Amiriya, less than 15 feet from the outdoor clay oven the family used to bake bread.
The second capsule was found partly buried about 75 feet from a house in Shamiya, just east of Amiriya and about 10 miles north of the nuclear testing site, in a position where it, too, would have been approached by family members and neighbors. Along with the capsules, parts of the giant testing poles were found, dismantled for scrap metal.
Why is the Department of Defense creating the command?Making a killing: The diamond trade in government-controlled DRC
Africa is growing in military, strategic and economic importance in global affairs. However, many nations on the African continent continue to rely on the international community for assistance with security concerns. From the U.S. perspective, it makes strategic sense to help build the capability for African partners, and organizations such as the Africa Standby Force, to take the lead in establishing a secure environment. This security will, in turn, set the groundwork for increased political stability and economic growth.
Every day blood is being spilled in the diamond fields of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), and nobody in the international community is even talking about it. In the capital Kinshasa, the government is able to announce, unchallenged, its commitment to an international system aimed at breaking the links between the diamond trade and human rights violations,(2) while in Mbuji-Mayi, the hub of the country's diamond industry, serious abuses directly connected to the diamond trade are occurring on a daily basis, largely unchecked.Congolese refugees enter Uganda by thousands
Two years ago, I and others called attention to a dangerous provision slipped into an omnibus appropriation bill. The provision gave the President of the United States the unprecedented power to deploy the U.S. military for domestic duty within the United States as he sees fit.PRAGER: The Rabbi & the Terrorists
For years I have warned that great evils often begin with the murder of Jews, and therefore non-Jews who dismiss Jew-hatred (aka anti-Semitism, aka anti-Zionism), will learn too late that Jew- and Israel-haters only begin with Jews but never end with them. When Israeli Jews were almost the only targets of Muslim terrorists, the world dismissed it as a Jewish or Israeli problem. Then it became an American and European and Filipino and Thai and Indonesian and Hindu problem.GLICK: Jihadist-Multicultural Alliance
Even though it was clearly a terrorist attack, most of reports avoided the words "Muslim" and "Islamic." It was, in fact, a while before the noun terrorism was employed.NYT refuses to report "Islam" re: Mumbai
The New York Times theorized that Chabad House may have been an "accidental hostage scene." The BBC initially chose to hide the Jewish character of the target by describing it as just "an office building." Al Jazeera refused to show Chabad House as the site of the carnage. Some Western media outlets unsympathetically labeled victims there as "ultra-Orthodox" or "missionaries."Bangladesh: Muslim Terrorist Beasts Destroy Stork Sculpture
Contrary to these fantasies, the all-too-obvious truth is now being confirmed:
* The Times of India reported that some of the terrorists, claiming to be Malaysian students, rented nearby space in order to scout out Chabad.
* The Indian doctor who conducted the post-mortems related in a shaken voice that: "Of all the bodies, the Israeli victims bore the maximum torture marks. It was clear that they were killed on the 26th [the first day of the attacks] itself. It was obvious that they were tied up and tortured before they were killed."
* The only captured terrorist, Ajmal Kamal, confessed under interrogation that his fellow murderers were specifically ordered to target the Jews killed at Chabad.
It's not only close India-Israeli ties that the terrorists wanted to destroy. It's likely that Mumbai's age-old history of hospitality to Jews made the Nariman-Chabad House a strategic target.

11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)
“The United Nations was, in major part, America’s creation,” declared Susan Rice, President-elect Obama’s nominee as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations at a news conference on Monday. This is true if you consider a communist and Soviet agent, U.N. founder Alger Hiss, to be truly “American.” But that is quite a stretch. This kind of gaffe is never highlighted by our media because it is something that is repeated often by those attempting to justify continued U.S. participation in the corrupt United Nations.The Lord of the Ring
Needless to say, Rice never mentioned that the U.N. is the “House that Hiss built.” But that is what it was, and what it remains.
What’s more, it is still infested with anti-American intelligence agents and foreign spies. Rice should read Comrade J, based on interviews with Sergei Tretyakov, the former Russian spymaster based at the U.N. The book describes the United Nations as a major base of espionage operations for Russia in the U.S.
Rice may be reluctant to read the book because of the fact that her Brookings Institution colleague, Strobe Talbott, is named in it as having been “a special unofficial contact” of the Russian intelligence agency, the SVR, when he was Deputy Secretary of State in the Clinton Administration. Talbott had been in charge of Russian affairs, and Rice had been Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs. They worked closely together, as Talbott concedes.
