EU’s open-border policy allows six million immigrants to descend on Britain

Daily Mail | Feb 8, 2007 

More than six million Eastern Europeans have travelled to Britain since since the EU’s borders were thrown open to them, new figures have shown.

The figure is ten times higher than official estimates of the numbers of Poles and migrants from neighbouring countries who are thought to have settled here in the past three years.

It suggests the real number of migrants from Eastern Europe who have stayed to live and work in Britain could be much higher than the 600,000 estimate that has been acknowledged by ministers.

Last year alone nearly 2.8 million visitors arrived from the eight countries that joined Europe in 2004, the figures showed.

The fast-rising level of travel to Britain is the latest indicator of the growing scale of Eastern European migration. There were more than four times as many visitors from Eastern Europe last year than in 2003, the year before labour markets were thrown open to workers from the East.

We do use books that call Jews ‘apes’ admits head of Islamic school

Daily Mail | Feb 7, 2007 

I don’t like to enter the religion debate because it is always a hot-button issue like racism. People’s passions regarding religion make them into kneejerk robots incapable of rational thought. When someone is involved in a cult, they cannot hear the truth. They block it out and react furiously to any criticism or they will stand there with a dumb smug look on their face feeling “pity” for you since you don’t know the “one true way” that they think they know. That is the reason I myself have pulled out from all religions.

It isn’t that I am an atheist or that I want to single out any group. I personally believe that religion is a form of mind control, the oldest form of it in fact. It is so because it controls people right down to their very core level, and operates on their deepest fears of abandonment and the fear of eternal damnation. I also believe that religion is controlled by wolves who have sought to herd the sheep ever since the dawn of civilization. The elites have always been involved in esoteric occultic “mystery religions”, and yet on the surface, you still see them practicing outwardly in the mainstream religions, going to church, mosque, temple and synagogue. They have their puppet priests in control of their flocks who generally go along with whatever the pontif decrees.

Hindus have their elitist caste system of control. The Jewish Talmud states that all non-Jews are cattle. Christians look upon other peoples as mere savages condemned to eternal damnation unless they convert. So, are Christians pigs, and Jews apes? No, but it seems to me that the high priests of all the religions have made monkeys of us all.

Lesson: don’t be a wolf or a sheep or a monkey. Grow up and become a human being.

The principal of an Islamic school has admitted that it uses textbooks which describe Jews as ‘apes’ and Christians as ‘pigs’ and has refused to withdraw them.

Dr Sumaya Alyusuf confirmed that the offending books exist after former teacher Colin Cook, 57, alleged that children as young as five are taught from racist materials at the King Fahd Academy in Acton.

In an interview on BBC2’s Newsnight, Dr Alyusuf was asked by Jeremy Paxman whether she recognised the books.

She said: “Yes, I do recognise these books, of course. We have these books in our school.

Chris Matthews: U.S. Wants A Little Bit of Fascism

Media Matters | Feb 9, 2007

“I think the country wants a boss like that, you know? A little bit of fascism there. Just a little bit. Just a pinch of it.”

On the February 7 edition of MSNBC’s Imus in the Morning, MSNBC Hardball host Chris Matthews heaped praise on GOP presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani, calling the former New York mayor “the kind of gutsy, street-corner politician we all grew up with” who “stood on the corner during the fire and told us what was going on.” Matthews said that he would like “[a] guy who wasn’t on the ranch during Katrina — who was out on the street corner answering questions,” adding: “I’m so sick of southern guys with ranches running this country. I want a guy to run for president who doesn’t have a fucking — I’m sorry — a ranch. Wouldn’t that be good?”

Matthews again touted the progress Giuliani made in improving olfactory conditions in New York City, asserting that “subways didn’t smell like pee anymore” and that “[e]ven the phone booths in New York have always smelled like pee.” Matthews made similar claims on the February 5 editions of MSNBC Live and Hardball, both noted by Media Matters for America. Matthews also claimed that Giuliani “made you feel like you had a right to walk the street safely” and added, “I think the country wants a boss like that, you know? A little bit of fascism there. Just a little bit. Just a pinch of it.”

As Media Matters has noted, Matthews has previously made the similar claim that Giuliani “is a front-runner because the voters like this guy because during 9-11 he was the one guy there on the street corner, not hiding like all the other pols did.”

Global Warming Skeptics Shunned

CNS News | Feb 8, 2007 

The political climate isn’t good for scientists with dissenting views on global warming, leaving some researchers to fear that honest research could be blackballed in favor of promoting a “consensus” view.

A dispute erupted this week in Oregon, where Gov. Ted Kulongoski is considering firing the state’s climatologist George Taylor, who has said human activity isn’t the chief cause of global climate change.

That view is not in line with the state policy of Oregon to reduce “greenhouse gases,” which are considered by many researchers to be the chief cause of global warming.

And Taylor is not alone.

Although a recent United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report summary said there is 90 percent confidence that human activity is the main cause of global warming, climatologist are far from unanimous in that view.

“It seems if scientists don’t express the views of the political establishment, they will be threatened and that is a discomforting thought,” said Alabama state climatologist John Christie, a professor of atmospheric science at the University of Alabama in Huntsville.

Christie told Cybercast News Service that while research has not been politicized in his state, he’s concerned about others. State climatologists in Virginia and Delaware as well as Oregon have faced scrutiny from state government officials for their views on global warming.

Christie stressed that Taylor and others do not deny that carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions are problematic to the environment, nor do they deny that global warming exists. Rather, he said, they argue that the matter is not as catastrophic as environmentalists argue.

Environmental groups have argued that global warming skeptics should be ignored or marginalized, but the American Association of State Climatologists urges policymakers to move cautiously when addressing the matter.

States eyeing laws to crack down on eating, drinking, grooming and smoking while driving

WWAY TV 3 | Feb 8, 2007 

As I said before, next it will be chewing gum, picking your nose, scratching your bum and it looks like twirling your hair is already about to be banned. Okay, I guess picking your nose could be considered personal grooming by a zealous cop too. “I have you on video digging for gold boy! Outta the car and spread em punk!” Again, this is Neofeudalism in your face. It was never about safety. It was always about control, incremental and total control over every single little activity to make you into the perfect and complete slave. It culminates in a few decades with total surveillance of your every action (including bowel movements) monitored by massive computers, tracking your every movement by satellite, listening to your conversations and and even reading your very thoughts. Don’t believe me? Do your own research and know the truth.

It’s not just cell phones that some states want drivers to give up.

A bill before the Vermont legislature would ban eating, drinking, smoking, reading, writing, personal grooming, playing an instrument, “interacting with pets or cargo,” as well as talking on a cell phone or using any other personal communication device while driving.

Violators could be fined up to 600 dollars.

The lawmaker behind the bill says he added the part about instruments after his wife saw a driver playing the flute.

Other states are also working to rein-in distracted drivers. Similar bills are under consideration in Maryland and Texas.

Connecticut already has a law that bans any activity that could interfere with the safe operation of a motor vehicle.

Flower pickers to be criminals?

BRUSSELS will today launch a controversial power grab — by pushing for a series of EU-wide “green crimes”.

It wants jail terms and hefty fines for offences from PICKING WILD FLOWERS to pollution and illegally dumping waste.

But critics say the move is a clear attempt by the European Commission to trample over national sovereignty.

EU countries have had the historic right to decide what constitutes a crime and how it should be punished.

But Brussels has seized on a European Court decision in 2005 which ruled that environmental matters should be dealt with at EU level.

Neil O’Brien, of campaign group Open Europe, said support for the plan would be a “watershed in EU politics”.

And Tory MEP Timothy Kirkhope called it an “alarming precedent”.

He added: “This is a significant transfer of power to the Commission. It’s a worrying erosion of British sovereignty — a blow to Britain’s ability to decide things for ourselves.”

U.S. says autism rate about 1 in 150

Meadow Free Press | Feb 8, 2007 

Many advocacy groups blame the vaccine preservative thimerosal

About one in 150 American children has autism, U.S. health officials said Thursday, calling the troubling disorder an urgent public health concern that is more common than they had thought.

The difference means roughly 50,000 more children and young adults may have autism and related disorders than was previously thought — a total nationwide of more than half a million people.

“This data today show we‘re going to need more early intervention services and more therapists, and we‘re going to need federal and state legislators to stand up for these families,” said Alison Singer, spokeswoman for Autism Speaks, the nation‘s largest organization advocating services for autistic children.

“Autism is more common than we believed,” said Catherine Rice, a CDC behavioral scientist who was the study‘s lead author.

The results suggest 560,000 children and young adults have the condition.

Also, the study does not answer whether autism has recently been on the rise — a controversial topic, driven in part by the contention of some parents and advocates that it is linked to a vaccine preservative. The best scientific studies have not borne out that claim.

The study was not an effort to find the cause of autism, still a point of debate. While many advocacy groups blame the vaccine preservative thimerosal, scientists are putting more focus on possible genetic causes, according to a recent Stanford University study.
