Lost connection

By Mike Cunningham On September 15th, 2011 at 8:36 pm

My Internet and phone connection went down around eleven this morning.

My son gave me the Faults Number, as I had no way of checking myself.

Got through to an automated phone selection, which strangely enough worked very quickly to connect me with, you guessed it, another automated recorded voice.

But within minutes, my call was logged, a temporary connection made to my mobile, and a promise made to investigate the problem.

At 20.50 this evening, service was restored, with full connectivity.

Talk Talk; I am impressed!

I love this stuff

Nobel Prize-Winning Physicist Resigns Over Global Warming

The global warming theory left him out in the cold.

Dr. Ivar Giaever, a former professor with Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and the 1973 winner of the Nobel Prize in physics, abruptly announced his resignation Tuesday, Sept. 13, from the premier physics society in disgust over its officially stated policy that “global warming is occurring.”

The official position of the American Physical Society (APS) supports the theory that man’s actions have inexorably led to the warming of the planet, through increased emissions of carbon dioxide.

Giaever does not agree — and put it bluntly and succinctly in the subject line of his email, reprinted at Climate Depot, a website devoted to debunking the theory of man-made climate change.

“I resign from APS,” Giaever wrote.

Giaever was cooled to the statement on warming theory by a line claiming that “the evidence is incontrovertible.”

“In the APS it is ok to discuss whether the mass of the proton changes over time and how a multi-universe behaves, but the evidence of global warming is incontrovertible?” he wrote in an email to Kate Kirby, executive officer of the physics society.

“The claim … is that the temperature has changed from ~288.0 to ~288.8 degree Kelvin in about 150 years, which (if true) means to me is that the temperature has been amazingly stable, and both human health and happiness have definitely improved in this ‘warming’ period,” his email message said.

My sincere thanks to all those who voted for my two blogs, Biased BBC and ATW, at Total Politics. As you can see, Biased BBC is now 14th best UK “right-wing” blog and ATW enters with a bullet at number 36. Readers will also note that I have not lobbied at any time for either blog in this annual vote. 2 out of 50 means that I am keeping 1/25th of all top right of liberal UK blogs alive.

Might be a good time to stop.

The Typical Democrat

Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky said this yesterday, regarding your money.

“I’ll put it this way. You don’t deserve to keep all of it and it’s not a question of deserving because what government is, is those things that we decide to do together. And there are many things that we decide to do together like have our national security. Like have police and fire. What about the people that work at the National Institute of Health who are looking for a cure for cancer,” Schakowsky said.

You just gotta love it, and I guess her and the rest of the Bolsheviks know best what it is we “NEED” to fund, I mean I read that in the Constitution right?

What is is even sweeter is this woman’s husband is a convicted Felon for Fraud and Tax Evasion.

On March 11, 2004, Schakowsky’s husband, lobbyist Robert Creamer, the executive director of the Illinois Public Action Fund, was indicted in federal court on 16 counts of bank fraud involving three alleged check-kiting schemes in the mid-1990s, leading several banks to experience shortfalls of at least $2.3 million. Schakowsky was not accused of any wrongdoing. Schakowsky served on the organization’s board during the time the crimes occurred,and Schakowsky signed the IRS filings along with her husband.

More icing are her feelings on Man Made Global warming, if the facts don’t match the proper narrative they should be suppressed. Here is her statement regarding that.

In hearings held by the House Energy and Commerce Subcomittee in July 2006, Schakowsky expressed concern that a report from the National Academy of Sciences showing discrepancies among scientists studying global warming might be “used in a way to discredit the whole notion that our country and the rest of the industrialized and developing world ought to do anything about global warming”

This is just another example of the communist mindset of the left.

Will the coming escalation in the War happen B4 or after Obama is out?

By Patrick Van Roy On September 12th, 2011 at 3:36 am

Only a blind man can’t see the flash point that is coming. It is not if, but when will Israel be attacked. For the last 7 years the Iranians have been developing a nuclear bomb to wipe out Israel in one blow.

The U.S. and Britain along with the Israeli’s were about to take out the facilities in Iran in Bush’s next to last year in office, when the left faked an intelligence report and placed it in the NY Times stating that the “Intelligence” assessment was that Iran had given up there bomb program years ago. This faked report was leaked a mere days before the Balloon was to go up, and successfully stopped the mission.

Since the Obama Regime took the White House they have betrayed our only Middle East Ally no less than 3 times publicly.

Turkey a week ago threw the Israeli diplomatic Team out of their country, and this week the Egyptians stormed and ransacked the Israeli Embassy.

Turkey claimed it was a response for the death of 9 Turkeys aboard a ship trying to run the arms blockade of Gaza, and the fact that Israel would not apologize. They then added the threat that Future Illegal running of arms into Gaza will be accompanied by the Turkish Navy. They also added that the U.S. Embassy was nothing but “A den of espionage”

During the Egyptian assault on the Israeli Embassy:

Leon Panetta, the US defence secretary, tried for two hours to get hold of Field Marshal Hussein Tantawi, Egypt’s de facto head of state, to demand an immediate rescue operation.

Aides told Mr Panetta that the general could not be found, Israeli officials were quoted as saying. The response prompted fury in Washington, and threats of US retribution. Field Marshal Tantawi’s mysterious disappearance intensified speculation that Egypt’s generals had deliberately failed to protect the embassy for political gain.

Why would they take the call from an administration that has shown nothing but contempt for our ally, while encouraging and even aiding our enemies to overthrow Middle Eastern Nations?

The only questions are will the Iranians get their bomb, or will the Turks and Egyptians get organized to attack first.

I know how the Jews will react, Bibi said it himself.

Speaking on Sunday, Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, said his government was determined to preserve the peace treaty between Israel and Egypt – comments that were echoed by the Egyptian leadership over the weekend. However, the Israeli leader also warned: “This peace is being challenged and those who challenge it are challenging not only the policy but also the state known as Israel.”

So what side will Obama come down on? Lets hope the Persians, and the Arabs don’t push the issue until after 2012.

I went into lower Manhattan this morning to meet up with my great friends Maureen and Hon.

Back then, Maureen, like me, was out of town on business.

Hon was on the 103rd Floor of Two World Trade Center when the plane hit the adjacent tower. As many did, he didn’t listen to any instructions – he walked down to the 78th Floor, took the main elevator down to the Lobby, and was two blocks away by the time the plane hit our building.

With the president and former president in town, this spot, Liberty St, east of Broadway, was as close as the NYPD would let us get.

Maureen stayed for the entire four plus hours reading of the names and commemorations.

Hon and I stayed until after 1028, the time that the North Tower fell. We retraced some of the odyssey that he took ten years ago. We walked down to South Street, by the East River, to the Manhattan Bridge, then walked over the Manhattan Bridge into Brooklyn.

We stopped to rest and pray at historic The Cathedral Basilica of St. James, which ten years ago, opened its doors, offering water and rest to Hon and many others fleeing Manhattan over the bridge.

We remember, and we always will.

I went right past picketers from the hateful Westboro Baptist Church in front of 140 Broadway. They had the usual ” God Hates Fags ” posters, along with others mocking 9/11. I got close enough to two of them so that they could hear me, and told them that they were not Christian, which is pretty obvious but which I think needed to be said.

The Mental Problem on the Left

The following is an example of the pathetically inept workings inside the minds of the American Leftist.

The Years of Shame

Is it just me, or are the 9/11 commemorations oddly subdued?

Actually, I don’t think it’s me, and it’s not really that odd.

What happened after 9/11 — and I think even people on the right know this, whether they admit it or not — was deeply shameful. Te atrocity should have been a unifying event, but instead it became a wedge issue. Fake heroes like Bernie Kerik, Rudy Giuliani, and, yes, George W. Bush raced to cash in on the horror. And then the attack was used to justify an unrelated war the neocons wanted to fight, for all the wrong reasons.

A lot of other people behaved badly. How many of our professional pundits — people who should have understood very well what was happening — took the easy way out, turning a blind eye to the corruption and lending their support to the hijacking of the atrocity?

The memory of 9/11 has been irrevocably poisoned; it has become an occasion for shame. And in its heart, the nation knows it.

I’m not going to allow comments on this post, for obvious reasons.

Mr. Krugman speaks for the majority of his fellow NY Times contributors, as well as a large portion of the leaders on the left side of the isle. They call the Tea Party people the Enemy because they want government to be required to live within it’s economicle means. Yet when America is attacked and the nation demands justice and action, they feel shame. Kind of says it all in a nut shell.

Never Forget

By Patty On September 11th, 2011 at 7:32 pm

On 9/11, watching the news live on TV, I will never forget the tiny people I saw free-floating in the air, next to the Twin Towers. When I first noticed them, I hoped that they were bits of debris, falling off the sides of the damaged  buildings. But, they were not bits of inert matter, debris; I was watching people, people falling to earth.

I looked away then and later I thought/hoped that I imagined this sight. But, I didn’t imagine it. It happened, and we must never forget. That is why I write this post; we must never forget.    (photo HT: Michelle Malkin)

God bless those who died on 9/11, may they rest in peace.
