UN votes to back military action against Libya. Air strikes could come from France & the UK, with US jets joining in later. The UN resolution includes freezing the assets of the Libyan National Oil Company and the central bank. [No one likes Gadaffi, but the UN is supposed to be a peace-keeping organization, not a war-launching one. The UN charter forbids “intervening in the internal affairs” of countries. Ha! That’s exactly what it was created to do.] DailyMail 2011 Mar 18 (Cached)
Japanese yen had risen to historic highs just before the trio of tragedies last Friday. Now the picture has changed. The G-7 (group of seven industrialized countries) promises to ‘support’ Japan’s recovery by intervening in the currency markets. Japan’s central bank has pumped $470 billion of newly created money into the system to stimulate borrowing for reconstruction. [It is difficult to understand news like this because the words are deceptive. When G7 says it will ‘support’ Japan, that means it will not retaliate when Japan pushes down the value of its money. Japan will deliberately create massive inflation by drastically expanding the money supply, and this will drive down the value of the Yen in currency markets. The Japanese government likes that because it makes their exports cheaper to other countries. That boosts their export sales, but only at the expense of the Japanese people who then are crushed by inflation. Governments and corporations don’t care about that as long as sales are good.] Yahoo 2011 Mar 18 (Cached)
US: Department of Homeland Security demoted a whistleblower who disclosed that DHS has obstructed Freedom-of-Information requests from watchdog groups and journalists.

CIA agent in Pakistan shot 2 men and was charged with murder. The Obama administration claims the agent is a ‘diplomat’ and has diplomatic immunity. The agent was released when relatives of the victims were paid $2.3 million compensation – money that came from billions of dollars the Pakistan government receives annually from American taxpayers. Pakistanis are rioting in the streets over the issue. DailyMail 2011 Mar 16 (Cached)
SUNDAY MARCH 20: NEXT TRAINING CALL

Even EPA admits the price is ‘absurd’, yet the target date to accomplish this is 2100 and the plan proceeds. [Only the most naive can continue to believe that this has anything to do with climate. It’s all about money and political power. Period!] WND 2011 Mar 14 (Cached)
US: Republicans consider cutting $9 billion in funding to the EPA to curb its power to regulate greenhouse gases based on phony global-warming science. [We shall see if their talk turns into real action.] Washington Post 2011 Mar 14 (Cached)

Within 24 hours of the quake in Japan, Grist magazine exploited the tragedy by implying that global warming was to blame. The headline read: “Today’s tsunami: This is what climate change looks like.” [Reader reaction was so strong they quickly changed the headline and posted an apology. This is encouraging because, only a year ago, most people would have accepted the propaganda as truth. The public is awakening.] Grist Posted 2011 Mar 12 (Cached)

Union Myths: This is an excellent analysis of how unions, with support of the Obama Administration, are trying to take away the right of workers to decide if they want a union to represent them. Not surprisingly, the bill is called “Employee Free Choice Act,” which does just the opposite of what it says. JWR Posted 2011 Mar 12 (Cached)

A young engineer was leaving the office at 5:45 p.m. when he found the CEO standing in front of a shredder with a piece of paper in his hand. “Listen,” said the CEO, “this is a very sensitive and important
document, and my secretary is not here. Can you make this thing work?”
“Certainly,” said the young engineer. He turned on the machine, inserted the paper, and pressed the start button. “Excellent, excellent!” said the CEO as his paper disappeared inside the machine, “I just need one copy.”
Lesson: Never, ever assume that your boss knows what he’s doing.
