Obama, in a staged “backyard chat” in Columbus, Ohio, says it will take several years to dig out of the recession. This is a big change from the line only a few months ago that the slump was over and recovery had begun. [The carefully selected “middle-class neighbors” showed no interest in issues such as loss of American sovereignty, destruction of the dollar, or unconstitutional military operations around the world. All they wanted to know was what he was going to do for jobs, pensions, health care, and child care as though these were the responsibility of the President. If that is a true cross-section of America, the nation is lost, because the people want a dictator.] Yahoo 2010 Aug 18 (Cached)

Satellites that measure global temperatures are off by as much as 15 degrees due to degradation of infrared sensors. Some readings were too hot by HUNDREDS OF DEGREES, but were not removed from databases. [Government scientists have been aware of this for years but have been silent because they want to preserve the myth of global warming. Recent announcements, including “hottest July on record” and “hottest six months on record” are based on these faulty readings and other fraudulent sources such as biased computer modeling, shifting temperature readings towards the tropics, favoring readings in warm urban centers, and fudging statistics through so-called “data correction”. The global-warming industry is as corrupt as it gets.] Canada Free Press 2010 Aug 16 (Cached)

Chicago Climate Exchange (CCX), which was counting on a global speculative market in carbon credits, is laying off half its staff.

Reports and commentaries that look beyond the news to identify historical facts and trends that must be understood to place the news into perspective. This is our “think-tank” section that makes it possible to anticipate future events.

Keith Olbermann, TV commentator on MSNBC, delivers a powerful defense of the right to build a Muslim community center near Ground Zero. [The media and major political parties are building up this issue as an emotional distraction from far more important matters that should be the focus of public debate. Olbermann is correct on this issue, but it is too bad he is aligned with Left-Wing collectivism and only speaks out against Right-Wing collectivism. He was Bush’s constant critic (and rightly so in most cases) but now that Obama is President and is continuing the Bush agenda, Olbermann is virtually silent. He is a cheer leader for the Democrat Party and a gatekeeper of the phony Right/Left paradigm. Having said that, his discourse on this issue is brilliant and worth watching.] YouTube 2010 Aug 20
