Our friend and climate-fraud avengerLord Christopher Monckton went further than ever before in his vehement opposition to the elite criminals running the climate change scam, calling for the UN to be shut down and for perpetrators of global warming fraud like Al Gore to be arrested and criminally prosecuted.
Monckton said that those who are threatening to shut down economies, bankrupt nations, and deepen the problems of the third world by implementing draconian policies in the name of global warming should be indicted, prosecuted and imprisoned “for a very long time”. We could not agree more.

I trust as I write this to the fabulous Right Soup that all are recharging with food, fellowship, and of course… football! Tomorrow is going to be a serious day…there is global news shaking our world, and battles we soldiers must continue to fight.
Today, however, we say “thank-you”. Thank-you to God, who made us and placed us all in this very time in history for very specific reasons, and who has an amazing destiny for each one of us. Thank-you to our families, who love us when we are exhibiting our full fallen nature… and still are our champions. Thank-you to our friends– old and new, who bond with us, join us on our journeys, and help us be our best, true selves.
Thanks for blessings we couldn’t hope to deserve. Thanks for rescues out of impossible situations. Thanks for mountainous obstacles, which force our faith to strengthen beyond what we believe we posses. Thanks that we know how the story ultimately ends, and that we win.
Thank-you, Right Soup, for the privilege of speaking to you daily…and for your answers back. You are iron that sharpens me, and great encouragement every single day. Bless you all, and have a VERY Happy Thanksgiving.

Not if we can help it, pal. Belgian Prime Minister Herman Van Rompuy accepted the first permanent presidency of the EU with these mad words:
“We’re living through exceptionally difficult times – the financial crisis and its dramatic impact on employment and budgets, the climate crisis which threatens our very survival, a period of anxiety, uncertainty and lack of confidence. Yet these problems can be overcome through a joint effort between our countries. 2009 is also the first year of global governance with the establishment of the G20 in the middle of the financial crisis. The climate conference in Copenhagen is another step toward the global management of our planet.”
Might want to hedge on that Copenhagen stuff. The fearmongering is looking a bit desperate. Just sayin’.
UPDATE: I got a reply from Lord Monckton!! He’s on it!!!!
I’m on it. I’m doing a piece for SPPI’s website, www.scienceandpublicpolicy.org, and I’ve already written, with Prof. Fred Singer, to the Information Commissioner here in the UK to ask him to prosecute the destroyers of data at the CRU. – M of B

Folks, this story is just getting started. In my opinion, this is the story of the DECADE. Bigger than health-care. Bigger than the stimulus. Bigger than where the hell Obama was born. Why? Because our very sovereignty is at stake in Copenhagen on Dec. 7th. Whomever leaked the 13 years-worth of documents from the Hadley Climate Research Centre in the UK is a PATRIOT. Manmade global warming is a SCAM. More to come.
Oh, and never in my life have I seen Alex Jones this freaking happy!
Last night the Senate moved closer to passing the idiocy they’re pimping as health care reform. The 60-39 vote, backed by all 58 Democrats and two independents, overcame a Republican-led filibuster designed to block the bill.
Although last night’s vote was only procedural, the dramatic balloting before a packed gallery on a Saturday night, set the stage for a debate that should begin after Thanksgiving and occupy the Senate for the rest of the year.
The three Democrats thought to be fence-sitters rolled over as instructed by leader Reid. Blanche Lincoln (D-AR), Ben Nelson (D-NE) and Mary Landrieu (D-LA) all fell in lockstep with the rest of the their caucus. Landrieu got a huge gift in exchange for her vote– a massive Medicade pass for Louisiana. That’s how the game is played, folks, and that’s why we need term-limits. Landrieu was unapologetic for taking the bribe, even saying reports that she got $100 million more in Medicaid dollars for Louisiana were false. It was really $300 million, she said.
“I’m proud to have asked for it. I’m proud to have fought for it, and I will continue to. That is not the reason I’m moving to the debate”
Lincoln and Landrieu both stressed they wouldn’t support a public option should it remain in the bill. Lincoln announced:
“I am opposed to a new government administered public health care plan as a part of comprehensive health care reform, and I will not vote in favor of the proposal that has been introduced by Leader Reid as it is written,”
No matter, should the public option be removed from the Senate bill, it’s still in the House bill… ready to be rammed in via the conference committee if the Senate passes a bill. This is how the game is played, folks. Now, should Leader Reid decided to do so, any Senate bill could be passed with a simple majority vote of 51. Don’t think it will happen? Bill Clinton has instructed the Dems to shove this sucker through any way they can, and Obama wants this on his desk by New Year’s Eve. Get the pink-slips ready, and start looking for replacement candidates that can help undo the madness.
Republicans said they wouldn’t give up the fight. “The battle has just begun,” Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) told the press shortly after Lincoln indicated her support for the procedural vote. “We are going to do everything and anything we can to prevent this measure from becoming law.”
The first vote on the Senate health care bill will be tomorrow. This is a procedural vote to attempt to bring the insanity to the floor for debate (cloture). 60 votes will be needed to do this, and anyone who votes for cloture is effectively voting for the bill. (Some may turn around and vote against the bill later to try and fool you into keeping them in office. Do not be fooled.)
There will be 10 hours of debate on the procedural vote, followed by the vote at 8pm ET. You know what this means! Phone lines at the Senate have been slammed all day. What to do? Plug in your zip here and get the direct line to your Senator’s office, along with an easy way to email. WEAR THOSE SUCKERS OUT.
The shenanigans in this bill are myriad. Abortion is back in. A new long-term care entitlement program is back in. Taxing your insurance benefits is still in. Huge reductions in Medicare benefits are in. Accounting gimmicks are always in.
The CBO estimates that H.R. 3962, the health bill that the House passed, would cost $1.2 TRILLION over 10 years, including the cost to states for mandated Medicaid expansion ($34 billion), the “Doc Fix” ($245 billion), and authorized discretionary spending for grants, public programs, changes and funding for a myriad of bureaucracies that would be responsible for implementing it.
The bill protects trial lawyers. The bill gives money to states that enact “certificate of merit” (a document signed by a medical professional that says there is a probability that the standard of care was violated) and/or a certificate of “early offer” (an early, confidential apology) laws, as long as the states don’t limit attorneys’ fees or impose caps on damages. Nothing is new under the sun.
The current version will give billions of dollars of taxpayer healthcare benefits to ILLEGAL ALIENS in America. It would allow illegal aliens to use the new healthcare “exchange” and would not require verification to keep illegal aliens out of the other parts of the proposed federal healthcare system. Members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus fought back against reports that leaders would add Senate language to block illegal immigrants from participating in the insurance exchange.
It will create a nationwide federal government program, the “public option,” which will pay for abortion on demand — with federal funds, of course, because that is what federal agencies spend.
Liberals in the House AND the Senate ignored us when the majority said, “NO BAILOUT.” They ignored us when the majority said, “NO FAKE STIMULUS.” Now, they’re trying to ignore us when the majority demands with a clear voice, “NO GOVERNMENT TAKEOVER OF HEALTH CARE!”
Now is the time. Right now. Do your duty as an American and speak as you never have before. Our nation is on the brink, and the perpetual spending-machine of Washington is determined to push us over. They want us beholden to them forever.
We must stay strong and united. DO NOT GIVE UP, Right Soup. There is a reckoning coming quickly. Stay in the fight.
UPDATE: Here’s the bottom line on this massive scandal. A MUST READ from a scientist on the front-lines of the fraud.
Wow. While we were sleeping some HUGE news hit– the University of East Anglia’s Hadley Climatic Research Centre in the UK was apparently hacked… or an insider’s conscience got the best of them. (Second one gets my vote.) Thousands of emails and documents of various types were leaked online. (The CRU is the world’s source for global temperature records.) These files contain highly sensitive information that are proving very embarrassing to their authors. Those authors include some of the most celebrated names among proponents of the theory of anthropogenic (man-caused)global warming (AGW). The documents show the scientists ignoring, manipulating and outright deleting data to fit their climate-change hoaxes–subverting peer review processes and colluding to make their computer models fit the scam science they promote. . Just in time for Copenhagen!!
Some of the most embarrassing e-mails are attributed to Philip Jones, the Director of the CRU and recipient of over $10 million in U.S. taxpayer dollars since 1995; Keith Briffa, his assistant; Michael E. Mann of the University of Virginia; Malcolm Hughes at the University of Arizona; and others. One such e-mail makes references to the famous “hockey-stick” graph published by Mann in the journal Nature:
I’ve just completed Mike’s Nature trick of adding in the real temps to each series for the last 20 years (ie from 1981 onwards) amd from 1961 for Keith’s to hide the decline. Mike’s series got the annual land and marine values while the other two got April-Sept for NH land N of 20N. The latter two are real for 1999, while the estimate for 1999 for NH combined is +0.44C wrt 61-90. The Global estimate for 1999 with data through Oct is +0.35C cf. 0.57 for 1998.
There are emails discussing how to avoid Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA) requests for data. There are documents like one entitled “The Rules of the Game”, which looks to be a primer for propagating the global warming scam to the masses. The Hadley CRU director admits the emails seem to be genuine:
The director of Britain’s leading Climate Research Unit, Phil Jones, has told Investigate magazine’s TGIF Edition tonight …”It was a hacker. We were aware of this about three or four days ago that someone had hacked into our system and taken and copied loads of data files and emails.”…
Regarding that Freedom of Information request sent to Jones, referred to above– Jones discusses in a file called “jones-foiathoughts.doc” his evident reluctance to hand over information, presumably to Climate Audit – and lists as one option sending back the information just as raw data, which would “annoy” those behind the FOI request:
Options appear to be:
1. Send them the data
2. Send them a subset removing station data from some of the countries who made us pay in the normals papers of Hulme et al. (1990s) and also any number that David can remember. This should also omit some other countries like (Australia, NZ, Canada, Antarctica). Also could extract some of the sources that Anders added in (31-38 source codes in J&M 2003). Also should remove many of the early stations that we coded up in the 1980s.
3. Send them the raw data as is, by reconstructing it from GHCN. How could this be done? Replace all stations where the WMO ID agrees with what is in GHCN. This would be the raw data, but it would annoy them.
And this gem:

Well I have my own article on where the heck is global warming? We are asking that here in Boulder where we have broken records the past two days for the coldest days on record. We had 4 inches of snow. The high the last 2 days was below 30F and the normal is 69F, and it smashed the previous records for these days by 10F. The low was about 18F and also a record low, well below the previous record low. This is January weather (see the Rockies baseball playoff game was canceled on saturday and then played last night in below freezing weather).

The fact is that we can’t account for the lack of warming at the moment and it is a travesty that we can’t. The CERES data published in the August BAMS 09 supplement on 2008 shows there should be even more warming: but the data are surely wrong. Our observing system is inadequate.”
Al Gore is rocking in the corner as we speak.

The hacker/mole released this statement along with the files:
“We feel that climate science is, in the current situation, too important to be kept under wraps.
We hereby release a random selection of correspondence, code, and documents.
Hopefully it will give some insight into the science and the people behind it.”
INDEED. Much more here at Watts Up With That. Here are all of the emails in chronological order. This is a searchable database.
We’re on this developing story. Happy Friday!
