German prosecutors have launched an inquiry into whether a garden gnome with its right arm raised in a Hitler salute in a Nuremberg art gallery breaks the law.

Telegraph | Jul 16, 2009

Salutes and Nazi symbols have been illegal in Germany since the Second World War but investigators may decide the figure is in fact ridiculing the Third Reich.

Wolfgang Traeg, a spokesman for the public prosecutors office, said: “The investigation is ongoing and people are being interviewed.

“It is also a question of art a bit,” he said. “It will also depend on what the artist and the owners of the gallery have to say for themselves about the whole thing.”

The gnome was produced by German-born Ottmar Hoerl, the president of the Academy for Fine Arts in Nuremberg.

Police in Fiji detained 14 members of a masonic lodge after villagers complained that they were practising ‘sorcery’ with wands, compasses and a skull.

Telegraph | Jul 16, 2009

Eight Australians and a New Zealander were among those jailed for 24 hours after their Tuesday night meeting was raided by police.

A member of the lodge blamed “dopey village people” for the raid on the island of Denerau.

The Australian foreign ministry said the group was detained for convening a Masonic meeting without the right permit.

The New Zealand Herald quoted an unnamed police spokesman who said officers acted on reports from villagers of “strange goings-on” at the lodge.

The lodge secretary showed police a permit for the meeting but was told it was not relevant and the group was locked up.

The Canberra Times reported that Fiji’s prime minister, Frank Bainimarama, ordered their release but investigations were still continuing.

Emergency regulations imposed by Fiji’s military regime allow police to detain people for up to 48 hours without charge.

“Nothing sinister”: Freemason

As police investigations continue in relation to the 14 Freemasons under investigation for alleged sorcery in Nadi, Fijivillage has been told by one of the Freemasons that there is nothing sinister when they hold their meetings.

He said a number of respected and prominent people have been members of Freemasonry Fiji and it has been in existence in Fiji since 1871 when a Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons in Polynesia was opened in Levuka.

Fijivillage has established that at various times over the last 130 years, there were five Masonic Lodges in Fiji.

Sweden prepares for mass vaccinations

Swedish health agencies revise swine flu strategy

Agencies preparing contingency plans for mass vaccination

Monsters and Critics | Jul 15, 2009

Stockholm – Anticipating hundreds of thousands of cases of the (A)H1N1 influenza virus this autumn, Swedish health agencies Wednesday said they would now focus on reducing the effects of the pandemic, known as swine flu.

The health care system was to focus testing, treatment and preventive measures on certain risk groups, including people suffering from chronic heart or lung disease, pregnant women, and people infected with the HIV virus or suffering from immune deficiencies.

Henceforth, only cases treated in hospital or confirmed results from laboratory tests would need to be reported, the National Board of Health and Welfare and the Swedish Institute for Infectious Disease Control said.

Doctors were also to be advised to be more restrictive when prescribing antiviral medications like Tamiflu. Health workers were also a targeted group.

Sweden has so far reported 187 confirmed cases.

People with flu symptoms were also to be advised to avoid contacting the health system unless they belonged to a risk group, the agencies said.

Researchers commissioned by the agencies recently projected that some 400,000 of Sweden’s 9 million inhabitants could be infected with the virus this autumn. A worst-case scenario suggested that 5 million people could be infected.

The agencies were preparing contingency plans for mass vaccination.

‘Such a large vaccination programme has never been conducted in Sweden before and represents a major challenge,’ said Anders Tegnell of the National Board of Health and Welfare’s infectious disease unit.

Gordon Brown backs Blair as President over all of Europe

Daily Mail | Jul 16, 2009

By Tim Shipman

Tony Blair is Labour’s choice to become President of Europe, a minister let slip last night.

The Europe minister Glenys Kinnock has revealed that Gordon Brown has formally chosen to endorse his predecessor for the lucrative new post.

In a press conference at the European Parliament in Strasbourg, she said: ‘The UK Government is supporting Tony Blair’s candidature for President of the Council.’

The move has dismayed the Tories, who have accused Labour of a ‘stitch-up’.

And Lady Kinnock’s admission provoked consternation in Downing Street, which mow must face questions over the role played by Lord Mandelson in the decision.

No 10 remained non-committal about the former prime minister’s chances, but Whitehall sources say Mr Brown’s arm was twisted by Lord Mandelson.

The Business Secretary made backing for Mr Blair’s EU bid a condition of his support in shoring up the Prime Minister’s leadership last month.

Leading Conservatives have attacked the move. Shadow Foreign Secretary William Hague said: ‘He should be let nowhere near the job.’

‘The creation of a new EU President could be enormously damaging for Europe. Any holder is likely to try to centralise power for themselves in Brussels and dominate national foreign policies. In the hands of an operator as ambitious as Tony Blair, that is a near certainty.

‘It shows what a grip Lord Mandelson now has over Gordon Brown that he has been forced to support his bitterest rival.

‘Rather than secret stitch-ups by unelected politicians for unelected politicians voters should have their say on the future of Europe.

‘Appointing Tony Blair as a President in Europe would be the perfect symbol of this stale Labour Government’s arrogant disregard for democracy.’

A Downing Street spokesman confirmed that Mr Brown has had regular discussions with Mr Blair about EU affairs.

But when asked whether Lady Kinnock’s announcement was planned in coordination with No 10, the spokesman betrayed irritation at the way the news came out. ‘I would not characterise it as an announcement,’ he said.

Sources close to Mr Blair say that while he privately wants the job, he will not put his head above the parapet unless he is odds on to win. Downing Street stressed that Mr Blair has not yet decided whether to run.

The new President’s post will be established if the Lisbon Treaty is ratified by all 25 EU member nations.

With Ireland set to vote again on the European constitution on October 2, the new figurehead will likely be selected at the end of that month, serving an initial two-andahalf-year term, with the chance to be appointed for a second.

It will give Mr Blair a powerful new platform to grandstand on the world stage as the face of the EU, which allies say he craves since his post as a Middle East envoy has not given him the influence he hoped for.

But support for the former prime minister is dwindling across Europe.

French President Nicolas Sarkozy, once an enthusiastic supporter of Mr Blair’s candidacy has now withdrawn his backing and is promoting former Spanish premier

Felipe Gonzalez instead. German Chancellor Angela Merkel is also opposed to Mr Blair getting the job.

Luxembourg grandee Jean Claude Juncker, current chief of the Eurozone, is also a serious contender.

While the role is ill-defined, the former prime minister can expect to earn even more than he did in No 10 and more than Gordon Brown’s current £197,689 salary. The post is expected to pay around £275,000.

Meanwhile, Gordon Brown could be regretting the decision to rush Lady Kinnock into Government.

She was handed a seat in the House of Lords – alongside husband Neil, the former Labour leader – last month in Mr Brown’s chaotic reshuffle following the resignation of Caroline Flint.

She has never previously held ministerial office. She said of Mr Blair: ‘He is someone with strength of character, status, people know who he is, and he could step into this new role with a lot of respect and he would be generally welcomed.’

A spokesman for Mr Blair said: ‘As we have said time and again on this, there is nothing to be a candidate for since the job doesn’t actually exist.’

Military Robots to Feed on Human Flesh

It could be a combination of 19th-century mechanics, 21st-century technology — and a 20th-century horror movie.

Fox News | Jul 15, 2009

A Maryland company under contract to the Pentagon is working on a steam-powered robot that would fuel itself by gobbling up whatever organic material it can find — grass, wood, old furniture, even dead bodies.

Robotic Technology Inc.’s Energetically Autonomous Tactical Robot — that’s right, “EATR” — “can find, ingest, and extract energy from biomass in the environment (and other organically-based energy sources), as well as use conventional and alternative fuels (such as gasoline, heavy fuel, kerosene, diesel, propane, coal, cooking oil, and solar) when suitable,” reads the company’s Web site.

That “biomass” and “other organically-based energy sources” wouldn’t necessarily be limited to plant material — animal and human corpses contain plenty of energy, and they’d be plentiful in a war zone.

EATR will be powered by the Waste Heat Engine developed by Cyclone Power Technology of Pompano Beach, Fla., which uses an “external combustion chamber” burning up fuel to heat up water in a closed loop, generating electricity.

The advantages to the military are that the robot would be extremely flexible in fuel sources and could roam on its own for months, even years, without having to be refueled or serviced.

Upon the EATR platform, the Pentagon could build all sorts of things — a transport, an ambulance, a communications center, even a mobile gunship.

In press materials, Robotic Technology presents EATR as an essentially benign artificial creature that fills its belly through “foraging,” despite the obvious military purpose.

Scientists back away from ‘global warming’

Paradise Post | Jul 14, 2009

By Dick Little

Anyone watching the growing environmental fear mongering on “global warming” knows the so-called “mainstream press” is losing its grip. The scientific community, at one time was thought to be ” overwhelmingly convinced the earth is warming.”

Now it’s backing away. It seems the so-called growing group of scientists in the environmental movement that the media claimed was unified in the belief the Earth is warming, does not exist.

The skeptics, some of whom have been quoted in this column in an effort to let you know there were two sides to this story, is a group that is growing. Many government officials are ignoring the science that is diminishing the global warming theory be-cause it shatters their programs to use this excuse to raise taxes.

The Senate is debating the Waxman-Markey cap and trade bill, which will cost taxpayers lot of money to make changes in living habits because of alleged “warming.” Environ-mentalists are demanding fast action on the bill because they know there is a growing group of scientists who say the issue is a “fraud.”

Up until now, Global Warm-ing was a hotly debated theory. It was being pushed hard by environmental groups and had the backing of a number of scientists. Environmentalists claimed the number of scientists supporting the measure was “overwhelming.” That never was true.

At the present time many pro global warming supporters are backing away as new evidence pours in showing temperature data collected supporting the idea the earth was warming was bogus. The latest data shows average temperatures during the past five years have actually been dropping. The media did its best to convince us “doom and gloom” was on the horizon. It turns out, they moved too quickly and now they find the evidence no longer supports the theory. Good reporters check their facts when they write their stories. Unfortunately, the pool of “good reporters” in our country is shrinking.

Right now, the Senate is considering a “Cap and Trade Bill,” that will bring about a “carbon tax” requiring most of us to pay a lot of money to solve a problem that does not exist. The bill will send even more American jobs overseas, even though an increasing number of scientists say hydrocarbons produced by man are not causing any warming at this time.

Ian Pilsner’s book, “Heaven and Earth, Global Warming: The Missing Science.” is being read by scientists who agree with him. Pilsner is one of Australia’s foremost authorities on the subject, and had been a supporter of the theory until uncovering new evidence to the contrary. He writes, “Much of what we have read about climate change is rubbish, especially the computer modeling on which much current scientific aspiration is based.”

Reporter Kimberley Strassel says, ” Al Gore and the United Nations (with a big assist from the media), did a little too vociferous a job smearing anyone who disagreed with them as ‘deniers.’ The backlash has brought the scientific debate roaring back to life in Australia, Europe, Japan and (even though it is less reported) the U.S.”

The Wall Street Journal reports the reason the Obama Administration is pushing “cap and trade” so hard is because they know, ” the global warming tide is again shifting.”

The Polish Academy of Sciences published a document challenging the idea of man-made global warming. In the Czech Republic, where President Vaclav Klaus re-mains a leading skeptic, only 11 percent of the population believes humans play a role.”

Twenty years ago French Scientist Claude Allegre was a strong supporter. Now he’s recanted. French President Nicolas Sarkozy is appointing him to lead the country’s new Ministry of Industry and Innovation. More than 700 scientists put their signatures on a document challenging the theory the earth is warming and that humans are the cause. That’s 13 times the number of scientists who authored the United Nation’s 2007 climate summery for policy makers.

Japanese environmental physical chemist, Dr. Kiminori Itoh, called the Global Warming scare, “the worst scientific scandal in history.” Dr. Itoh was also among the early groups of scientists supporting the idea that warming was caused by man made hydro carbons. Scientists are now agreeing the world’s temperatures have “flat-lined” since 2001, despite increases in CO2. From Australia, Geologist Dr. Ian Plimer published, “Heaven and Earth, a Damning critique of the evidence,” also challenged the concept humans are responsible for any warming trends.

The book convinced global warming advocate Paul Sheehan to declare the movement, “an evidence-based attack on conformity and orthodoxy, including my own, and a reminder to respect informed dissent and beware of ideology subverting evidence.” In Australia there’s a bill similar to our own “cap and trade” that appeared to have some support. Now votes are going the other way and the measure probably will not make it out of committee. Climate specialists their now say it is the time to ” re-engage on the science.”

The Obama administration and their environmental allies know the science is falling apart which is probably why they want cap and trade passed immediately. If it doesn’t move quickly, the measure will be overwhelmed by the growing number of scientists who believe “global warming” is a fraud that has been invented as a means to grab more of your tax dollars.

Austrian reporter claims swine flu was created to eliminate huge numbers of the population and attain global control

Various lethal diseases would also be injected along with the vaccination, thus eliminating huge numbers of the population.

Charges For Conspiracy Against Mankind

Javno | Jul 15, 2009

by Karmen Horvat

“I have filed criminal charges in Austria against Baxter and Avir Green Hills Biotechnology for producing and distributing contaminated bird flu vaccine material this winter, alleging that this was a deliberate act to cause a pandemic, and also to profit from that pandemic” – this is the beginning of the charges raised by Austrian reporter Jane Burgermeister on April 8 at the Vienna State Attorney`s Office.

She stated her reasons on her blog, including suspicions that Baxter and Avir have been developing biochemical weapons in co-operation with the so-called Illuminati or the Bilderberg group.

Biggest crime in the history of mankind

Jane Burgermeister went a step further: warning that the biggest crime in history of mankind was on the verge, she has decided to file criminal charges at the American FBI against the World Health Organization (WHO), the United Nations and several high government and pharmaceutical responsible for vaccines, with charges of planning mass murder.

Furthermore, the reporter will request a court ban of mandatory vaccination against the swine flu.

According to Burgermeister, bioterrorism is promoted by a group of U.S. bankers who control Federal reserves, as well as WHO, UN and NATO. The group of conspirators has also infiltrated the very pinnacle of the American state.

WHO delivered bird flu to laboratories, which unleashed it

china_baby_vaccinationAccording to the reporter, the group has unleashed artificially created viruses – bird flu and swine flu in order to eliminate huge numbers of the population and subsequently profit from selling vaccine through Baxter and other companies, along with using mandatory vaccination in certain countries. Of course, with the goal of controlling the pandemic.

Her latest lawsuit refers to the one filed in April. At the time, Burgermeister submitted evidence that Baxter laboratories in Austria intentionally unleashed 72 kilos of active bird flu virus. The virus was supposedly delivered by the WHO to 16 laboratories in four countries. Even though security is tight with dangerous matters, especially those classified as bio weapons, the procedure was not honoured this time.

According to Burgemeister, the release of these viruses serves the WHO so that it can stat distributing vaccine once enough time passes for an epidemic to occur. Various lethal diseases would also be injected along with the vaccination, thus eliminating huge numbers of the population.

USA would be the first “cleansed” country

The reporter claims that the American government has systematically been introducing measures since 2008, intended for cutting back constitutional freedoms so that when the time comes, they can conduct mandatory vaccination. The media play a part as well, convincing people of the seriousness of the swine flu, announcing the vaccination.

Finally, what the group which has spurred a food of conspiracies, is trying to achieve, is control over North America in order to exploit its natural resources without any obstacles. Later on, the similar process will take place all over the world, according to prognosis.

Are statements of some of the accused men a month after Burgermeister`s initiative hints of her claims being true?

– The swine flu virus is now unstoppable. The world is moving into the early days of its first influenza pandemic in the 21st century – Margaret Chan, Director-General of WHO said on June 11.

With this statement, the media write, the WHO has given pharmaceutical companies the green light of finding a vaccine. What is more, “every country will need to vaccinate citizens against the A/flu virus and must choose who else would get priority after nurses, doctors and technicians”, said Dr. Marie-Paule Kieny, WHO director of the Initiative for Vaccine Research.

– The committee recognized that the H1N1 pandemic … is unstoppable and therefore that all countries need access to vaccine – Kieny concluded. The British cabinet has now announced that it will vaccinate all of its citizens, due to the increasing number of persons who have contracted the virus and died of the swine flu.
