Pot Protest the Prez: Pipeline-to-Prison Proponent to Mock Grads in Worcester Wednesday — by NormanB (“Deviations from the Norm”)

 

 

President Obama, whose Administration sends legions of unfortunate young US Marijuana smokers down the school-to-prison Pipeline, will speak to graduates at a high school in Worcester, Massachusetts, today.   https://www.facebook.com/events/644344002287106/?ref_notif_type=plan_mall_activity&source=29

Lots of freedom advocates from this and surrounding states will be there to protest his disgusting Drug War against Americans.  http://www.thedailychronic.net/2014/30941/momentum-builds-for-obama-prohibition-protest-in-new-england/

President Obama leads the DEA, a Murderous Fascist Terrorist syndicate that makes Billions of dollars by keeping Marijuana illegal. To help them make that money, President Obama must regularly renew his lie that Marijuana can’t be a medicine, and has no medicinal purpose.

This lie causes deaths every day by preventing transplants and blocking treatment for patients with AIDS, MS, ALS, and Skin Cancer, among many other maladies. The Presidential order causes one American to be permanently blinded and scarred by an unnecessary Glaucoma operation every three minutes.

This morning’s news was filled with dangerous fallout from this false campaign. Obama’s Food and Drug Administration is today advising pregnant women to eat extremely dangerous amounts of seafood – eight to twelve ounces per week! – amounts far exceeding what is safe for large adult males, let alone developing fetuses.  http://www.webmd.com/women/features/pregnancy-fish-risk

The publicity “doctor” promoting poisoning the fetuses on CBS News this morning eschewed labeling fish containing Mercury in favor of eating certain fish. She said that low level Mercury (a poison) is actually beneficial. Under questioning, she admitted that the dangerous fish-eating guidelines are to get Omega 3 Fatty Acids into kids.

But the highest food source for Essential Fatty Acids is Cannabis. This uncensored French page, for instance, recommends Cannabis before fish.  http://en.mr-ginseng.com/omega-3/

So, the US is poisoning its unborn with Mercury, Gulf-of-Mexico Oil Dispersants, and Pacific Nuclear Spew, while blinding old people unnecessarily, and letting children die from medicines withheld; all just to support President Obama’s lie, to keep the DEA creeps in Black Market money, and to keep locking up African Americans for something that most people don’t consider a crime.

Here’s how some other top stories in today’s news are falsified to the public to justify Obama’s lies on Marijuana:

  • First, sticking with today’s CBS News, it aired a hit-piece segment against Colorado’s Medical Marijuana law. The “news” report was filled with falsehoods. One was that children have overdosed on Marijuana, the world’s safest therapeutic substance, on which it is impossible to overdose. No one has ever overdosed on Marijuana, not even babies in Colorado. The report said that some people have been ticketed for driving under pot’s influence; it didn’t mention that Drunk Driving is significantly down; finished up saying pot profits should hire more cops, to arrest these Marijuana drivers. But according to testing done thus far, Marijuana makes people drive much more carefully. Legal Colorado joints cost $16 there, the report said – but I can get them for about $2 here.
  • The World Cup of Futbol/Soccer is coming to the Oil-rich Slave state Qatar, where playing temperatures will be over 100 degrees Fahrenheit. One of the main reasons that Marijuana is illegal is its proven scientific ability to cleanly and cheaply replace Oil, Nukes, and Natural Gas in our economy with products that give off no net Greenhouse Gas emissions, and thus stop causing Global Warming.
  • Fighting in the Ukraine is partly or largely about replacing Russian Fossil Fuels flowing through the Ukraine with Fossil Fuels imported from the US and its allies. These are the same Fossil Fuels that will kill all the children if used. But the Swedish study from Lund University cited below proved that the US, or Ukraine, or Russia, or the EU can easily and quickly produce their own Gas and liquid fuel products that have zero net Greenhouse Gas emissions. But we’re ready to fight on the Nazi side against Russia, to impose dirty fuel?!   http://my.firedoglake.com/normanb/2010/11/11/breakthrough-swedish-hemp-energy-study-corroborates-hemp-emperor-herer/

Come join me at the protest if you can. I’ll leave for it around noon EST. I’ll be back to write an update in the Comments section below, when it’s over.

UPDATE/Breaking: Judy Woodruff Lies to Cover Up CIA Program Selling Teenage Girls @$12

UPDATE/Breaking: Judy Woodruff Lies to Cover Up CIA Program Selling Teenage Girls @$12

 

I just watched the first half of the PBS News Hour with Judy Woodruff. It’s still on, here in the Eastern US. The far-Right Propaganda about Ukraine was a disgrace to journalists everywhere, and a significant disgrace to the United States. (PBS is on our nation’s official Propaganda organs.)

Judy Woodruff herself reported the PBS piece on Boko Haram; part of the story below that I reported this morning, but with a huge difference: She lied to Cover Up for the Sex Slave network, apparently because they work for the US Government, like she does.

Judy Woodruff is highly incompetent and not up on the news, or she’s lying if she says that she doesn’t know as well as I do that President Obama’s African Death Squad Boko Haram is an arm of the CIA, See the WikiLeaks link in the story below; they exposed it two months ago.

The CIA kidnapped these teenage girls, and they’re selling them for $12 apiece. Judy Woodruff interviewed a guest that talked in circles. She acts clueless. Who is this bad Boko, and why isn’t somebody doing something about it?

A horrible unspoken truth is that it doesn’t matter to a lot of people, because they’re Black. That makes it less important news – that is, with less commercial value.

Lies lies lies. Try to watch the segment if you can find it.

 

Obama Death Squad “Boko Haram” Confesses to African Murders — by NormanB (“Deviations from the Norm”)

 

A CIA Death Squad under President Obama’s control Murdered at least 12 Africans in Nigeria with a car bomb Thursday. The group Boko Haram claimed responsibility. http://www.theguardian.com/world/feedarticle/11322064 WikiLeaks revealed that they are part of the US Central Inteligence Agency. http://imnig.org/boko-haram-cia-covert-operation-%E2%80%93-wikileaks

Boko Haram is an ODS – an Obama Death Squad. The President has several such groups, carrying out Lynchings in Africa, and Murdering journalists in Honduras and Mexico. Boko Haram stepped up its operations exponentially when Obama became President. According to US officials, Boko Haram has Murdered over 10,000 Africans. (Some were ordered by President George W. Bush, before Obama was in office.) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boko_Haram#State_counter-offensive

Because of its affiliation with the CIA, the US State Department refused to designate Boko Haram a Terrorist group until a few months ago, despite its decade of Lynchings. http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/nov/13/us-designates-boko-haram-terrorist-organization/?page=all They hold Rape Fests. http://www.ticotimes.net/2014/04/30/boko-harams-horrendous-abduction-of-234-teenage-girls ~&~ http://leadership.ng/features/353367/ordeal-hands-rapists-boko-haram-camps

To manipulate the news, they staged a battle with other CIA members and with Great Britain’s MI5.  http://tribune.com.ng/news/top-stories/item/952-boko-haram-fg-engages-cia-mi5/952-boko-haram-fg-engages-cia-mi5

They are allowed to buy African girl children as Slaves.  http://news.nationalpost.com/2014/04/30/abducted-nigerian-schoolgirls-sold-into-marriage-with-boko-haram-extremists-for-12-report-says/

With President Obama’s protection and backing, they enjoy Gang Rape, and frequently kidnap African civilians.  http://www.ynaija.com/how-we-kidnap-and-gang-rape-women-in-the-bush-boko-haram-member-confesses/

Obama is Terrorizing the Black Africans of Nigeria to steal their Oil – the largest known reserves in Africa – to deliver it to the White Colonial Powers (WCPs). Another reason for these attacks in the Oil region is to raise the price of Petroleum.

The CIA is doing these Rapes and Murders to raise the price of Oil, to pay back those who put Obama in office. Make no mistake about it, you American citizens are paying for these crimes to be committed with your tax dollars:

If you voted for President Obama, you voted for Lynching Africans, and for selling them into Slavery. It is now your responsibility to undo this as soon as possible.

As Obama Administration Cracks Down on Jews in Ukraine and India, Can It Still Not Happen Here?

8:49 am in Uncategorized by normanb

As Obama Administration Cracks Down on Jews in Ukraine and India, Can It Still Not Happen Here? — by NormanB (“Deviations from the Norm”)

 

 

Far-Right Racist forces, possibly loyal to US Intelligence and First Look Media owner Pierre Omidyar, are harassing Jews in the Ukraine. At least two men violently attacked Ukrainian Rabbi Hillel Cohen in Kiev last week, calling him “Yid!” (an antisemitic slur).  http://www.jta.org/2014/03/14/news-opinion/world/kiev-rabbi-assaulted-in-suspected-anti-semitic-attack

Billions of US dollars flowed from Omidyar and Obama’s Intelligence community to the coalition of the self-named Ukrainian “Nazi Party” [later changed to "Freedom Party" (Svoboda)].

Under the influence of those Billions, Ukraine’s parliament ruled that it’s Legal to call a Jew a Zhyd, and to call a Jewish female a Zhydovka, and that these Racial slurs are not antisemitic.  http://www.timesofisrael.com/ukraine-okays-slur-zhyd-for-jews/

(Bizarrely, Wikipedia condones the antisemitic slur, claiming that it isn’t anti-Jewish and that it isn’t a slur when it’s used by Ukrainians.)  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zhydovka

For links confirming that Svoboda is Nazi, that Obama and Omidyar (Oh-Oh) funded its Nazi coalition, and that anti-Jewish incidents have cropped up since that funding’s been in place, please see the bottom of this page.

The Ukraine’s Nazi/Freedom Party (whose coalition is supported by Oh-Oh) officially calls for fighting Jews in its mission statement.  http://www.jta.org/2014/02/25/news-opinion/world/ukraine-jews-hunkering-down-amid-turmoil  ~&~  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Svoboda_%28political_party%29#Allegations_of_neo-nazism_and_political_extremism

US mainstream media (MSM: ABCNNBCBS, Fox, most newspapers & radio stations) and the official US Propaganda organs (PBS, NPR) blitzed the airwaves all week, demanding that the US ‘man up’ and support the Ukraine coup, ignoring the Nazi connection and ignoring the results of the last Ukrainian Election.

During far-Right putsches/coups, including those the CIA just pulled against Venezuela and the Ukraine, the Intelligence-targeted countries’ news media are infiltrated such that they encourage the public – that is, they try to trick the public – into supporting Fascism. Are we in an Intelligence-targeted country now?

Omidyar might appear to be involved in another serious coup, against Freedom of the Press. I refer of course to his very publicly hiring (many say ‘buying up’) some of the world’s top investigative reporters, including those closest to heroic Military Intelligence whistleblower Edward Snowden (Glenn Greenwald and Laura Poitras), as well as Jeremy Scahill, Empty Wheel’s Cindy Wheeler (formerly of FireDogLake.com), and Rolling Stone‘s Matt Taibbi.

Taibbi’s RS colleague Michael Hastings, Internet- & Press-Freedom advocate Aaron Swarz, and hundreds of other journalists in the United States, Mexico, and Honduras were Assassinated or suspiciously got dead under Obama’s reign so far. They just wouldn’t shut up. Obama claims he is allowed to just order Assassinations if he wants. He admits to doing it.

Prepping Press with Propaganda makes the people more pliable.

Early on, the Obama regime overthrew elected Governments and suppressed the media in Honduras and the Maldives with far-Right Fascist coups, too. I hope to find out if Omidyar was also involved in funding those coups, and in the Obama Administration’s far-Right attempt to overthrow Venezuela and steal its Oil (simultaneous with the US’s anti-Ukraine actions).

As one after another of the world’s top investigative journalists agreed to join Omidyar’s First Look Media, we who believe in investigative journalism had our hopes pumped up higher and higher: Can we really hope for widespread access to professionally investigated non-MSM news?

Then, amid revelations that Omidyar helped Obama and US Intelligence fund elements of the UNC (Ukraine’s Nazi Coup), I felt my hopes for First Look had been completely dashed.

I hope I’m wrong about that. I hope they’ll be doing hard-hitting reporting on any and all Obama-and-Omidyar-linked Fascist groups in the Ukraine, the Maldives, Honduras, Venezuela, Mexico, and elsewhere.

Groups on the far Right are often called “Fascists,” “Neo-Fascists,” Nazis,” or “Neo-Nazis.” President Obama is officially the titular head of several Fascist Terrorist groups currently waging war against the US and its allies, including the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), the National Security Agency (NSA), and the Zetas Drug Cartel of Mexico, an arm of the US CIA.  https://firstlook.org/theintercept/2014/03/13/president-obama-covering-presidencys-role-torture-4-years/ ~&~ http://www.soaw.org/category-table/3729-captured-zeta-leader-weve-purchased-weapons-from-the-us-government-itself ~&~ http://www.soaw.org/about-the-soawhinsec/soawhinsec-grads/notorious-grads

Russian gas has flowed contentiously to the Ukraine and through it to the EU for some time. The US may be ready to man up with exported US “Natural” Gas to help fill that potential gap, even though the President knows that burning all that gas would kill all the children in this country before their time.  http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/using-us-natural-gas-as-an-energy-wedge-against-russia/2014/03/22/634ae586-b13b-11e3-95e8-39bef8e9a48b_story.html ~&~ http://www.npr.org/blogs/parallels/2014/03/21/292369163/can-europe-wean-itself-off-russian-gas

Corporate Bribery could be why President Obama is so incentivized to arm Ukrainian Nazis, as Oil companies and other frequent Obama contributors clamor for a piece of the overthrown Ukraine’s pie.  http://consortiumnews.com/2014/03/16/corporate-interests-behind-ukraine-putsch/

David Headley of the DEA, one of the Neo-Nazi Terrorist organizations the President heads, Murdered and Kidnapped Jews in the antisemitic Mumbai attack in India just after Obama got elected, on November 26, 2008.

The Indian Government then copied the US “9/11″ Terrorist Propaganda and the UK “7/7″ Terrorist Propaganda, that were used to curtail Human Rights in America and Britain, respectively (the so-called “Fascist Reforms”).

In India the commercial catch phrase for the Fascist Reforms was “27/11″ – using the catchy rhyming date, with its emotional tug, to convince people to give up their freedom to the homeland security apparatus, after the US-Intelligence-sponsored Mumbai Terrorist strikes.

India wants to prosecute the DEA’s Headley, but the DEA’s head, Barack Obama, is Covering Up for the confessed Racist Murderer, and blocking his underling Agent David Headley’s extradition.  http://www.ndtv.com/article/india/disappointed-at-us-refusal-to-extradite-david-headley-salman-khurshid-321478

Child Murderer-in-Chief Announces Hateful Cuts, Issues Veiled Warning Threat to First Graders

7:12 pm in Uncategorized by normanb

Child Murderer-in-Chief Announces Hateful Cuts, Issues Veiled Warning Threat to First Graders — by NormanB (“Deviations from the Norm”)

 

Today it’s not just me: Glenn Greenwald and George Monbiot both called President Obama a Child Murderer. Obama has killed 9 times as many children with Drones as the Sandy Hook shooter did, and has shown NO remorse. In fact, he laughs and jokes about killing children with Coward Drones.

 

 

 

With his ha-ha funny Coward Drones, President Obama has Murdered at least 178 children. We must as a country find some way to turn him over the the International Criminal Court in the Hague for prosecution. If we don’t, we are helping him Murder more children.  http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2012/dec/19/newtown-drones-children-deaths

Today President Obama announced Hateful slashes to benefits slated for the very poorest and most vulnerable people in our country: This is so that the richer half of the country won’t have to pay the automatic tax increase that he himself signed into law, but now calls “The Fiscal Cliff.” Make no mistake about it: These cuts do constitute a monumental Hate Crime, and they are sure to kill lots of children. President Obama seems to be letting his apparent Hatred of children get in the way of his governing.  http://my.firedoglake.com/normanb/2012/12/14/obamas-forces-launch-chemical-weapon-attack-killing-baby-with-poison-gas-the-presidents-hateful-policies-against-children/

In Hateful anti-child Propaganda [reminiscent of 1984's newspeak], President Obama calls the richer half of the country “the Middle Class.” He calls the emergency life support system that’s keeping poor children alive “entitlements,” with its negative connotation, calculated to make the listener feel that those lazy poor kids are not entitled to anything. Let ‘em wither!

When people are in such dire straits that they need Government assistance just to stay alive, those who are turning off the feeding tubes know they’re killing some of their victims. President Obama knows that further squeezing the poorest of the poor at this critical juncture will kill children. So, I guess he’ll get another big laugh.

If he has studied history and economics, he knows that cutting aid to the very poor is likely to cripple our faltering economy, and to ramp up our current Recession into a devastating decades-long Depression.

Let me mention the obvious: Money and influence from the National Rifle Association (NRA) and other corporate interests control our politicians to a large extent. I think of it as Bribery.

Obama had his spokesperson Jake “the Snake” Carney say that the President supports Oil billionaire Dianne Feinstein’s fake Assault Weapons ban, with 900 exceptions in it. Of course, if Obama and Feinstein were actually serious about limiting gun violence, they would be trying to prosecute Attorney General Eric Holder for supplying weapons to Drug Cartels in Mexico that were then used to Murder cops in this country. Instead they’re Covering Up Operation Fast and Furious.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eric_Holder#Operation_Fast_and_Furious

And in a most troubling development, the President (and other politicians hoping to sweep this shooting under the rug) are pointing at mental health and autism, as if to say: “We don’t have insufficient Gun Control laws in this country, we have insufficient Autism Control laws!” This veiled threat means that he won’t speak out forcefully for banning handguns and Assault Weapons.

It means that school children in this country may soon be as traumatized as President Obama’s victims in Pakistan and Yemen and Somalia, wondering if they’ll be next, if their classroom will win this month’s “Lottery.” I say Obama should not let Congress break for holidays until our children are safe and Assault Weapons and handguns are banned.

Watch this whole fascinating report. Jake the Snake delivers Obama’s veiled threat beginning at about the 6-minute mark of the video.  http://www.aljazeera.com/programmes/insidestoryamericas/2012/12/2012121972717242949.html

Handguns and Assault Weapons are made for Murdering people. They have no legitimate purpose. It is possible that a person buying a gun will use it to protect himself, but it is 100 times more likely that he will Murder with it. The gun seller knows that, and he knows that the buyer is 300 times more likely to kill himself with the gun than to protect himself with it, no matter what he says is the purpose of his purchase.

So, the Obama Administration is not trying to limit gun violence against children. Here’s how you can tell. Australia had a school massacre problem. They ended it by confiscating the offending guns. That’s all it took. Immediately the massacres stopped completely. There hasn’t been another one since then; and that’s 16 years. Australia had lots of gun nuts too, just like we do. But they handled it. With a little less Hatred of children, we could get this done right away.  http://www.democracynow.org/2012/12/18/new_town_to_newtown_how_96

NORAD Ignorant of High-Speed Drones in Denver/New Obama Policy: Killing Marijuana Possession Suspects from the Air

NORAD Ignorant of High-Speed Drones in Denver/New Obama Policy: Killing Marijuana Possession Suspects from the Air – by NormanB (“Deviations from the Norm”)

 

~
http://youtu.be/1AEQgEFqE40

 

A citizen sighted high-speed Drones flying over Denver, Colorado, and videotaped them. The local Fox TV station taped them too, and asked what they can be. NORAD (the North American Aerospace Defense Command), 70 miles to the South, said it didn’t notice them. Colorado just Legalized Marijuana.
~
600 miles to the East, at Ft. Leavenworth Federal Prison in Kansas, Political Prisoner Bradley Manning is held indefinitely for whistleblowing: That is, he’s being held – and according to the UN he was Tortured by Obama’s forces – for allegedly protecting his nation from criminal acts committed by President Barack Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and others in high Government posts.

http://my.firedoglake.com/normanb/2011/10/21/un-security-council-votes-unanimously-to-cover-up-obama-saleh-yemen-war-crimes-maintain-murderous-regime-help-dictator-escape-justice/

On Halloween Amy Goodman reported on Democracy Now! that a US Border Patrol sharpshooter in a helicopter Murdered two Guatemalans on the US-Mexico border because he suspected they were possessing drugs. The report begins at 3:53 of the following clip.

http://www.democracynow.org/2012/10/31/headlines/texas_agent_shoots_dead_2_guatemalans_near_border#.UKZiHpGEyxQ.facebook

This reminds one of the US DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration) massacre Murders of Honduran pregnant women, some men, and at least one child in May, as reported by Goodman and Juan Gonzalez on Democracy Now! These Murder victims were also accused of drug possession by the US. In this case, a US State Department helicopter accompanied the US DEA helicopter from which the US-paid killers shot the poor people. I would like to know if President Obama personally authorized the slaughter of these pregnant women and children, or if he authorized Covering Up their Murders. I would further like to know if Secretary of State Clinton was in the State Department helicopter that participated in the massacre.

~

I don’t know if President Obama personally gave the order to kill the pregnant women, or if he just generally empowered employees of the DEA and the Border Patrol to Murder anyone suspected of Marijuana possession. One hopes that he didn’t empower US forces to Murder anyone suspected of being Hispanic or Latino, as he appears to have ordered against Muslims and Arabs. Obama’s reign of terror has also brought on the Murders of hundreds of journalists, in both Mexico and Honduras; but that’s a story for a different article.

http://www.democracynow.org/2012/5/18/us_secret_drug_war_in_honduras

Most drug enforcement efforts in this country and Mexico are aimed at Marijuana. In the Honduras massacre, the suspicion may have been Marijuana, Hashish, or Cocaine. Murdering people on suspicion of anything is an Atrocity, and in the two cases cited above, these were War Crimes, committed by our Government, apparently shielded from prosecution by our President and by Attorney General Eric Holder. The Murderers had no right to kill these people. Even if President Obama gave the DEA and Border Patrol permission to kill any suspected drug possessors or Latinos, even if Obama did that, these barbaric killers of the DEA and Border Patrol still need to be arrested for Murder. All of them.
Why does President Obama push to have people who may be possessing Marijuana killed? Why does he block Skin Cancer patients from access to the malady’s anecdotal cure, Rick Simpson Oil? What does President Obama have to gain by subjecting Skin Cancer to painful and unnecessary deaths? Is it because Marijuana can be grown in such a way and in such quantities that it can replace all our Petroleum, Coal, and Nuclear Power usage with Clean Energy that does not emit any Greenhouse Gases? Yes it is: Why? Money.
President Obama claims that he wants the United States to be Energy Independent, but that’s obviously a lie: As cited below, Lund University in Sweden proved Jack Herer’s hypothesis that, by growing Cannabis Hemp (Marijuana) on just 6% of our arable land, we can be Energy Independent on Hempen Clean Fuels in just two months, and we, the United States, would then no longer be contributing to Global Warming. What’s more, by no longer importing Petroleum or Petroleum products, we can instantly flip our disastrous Trade Deficit into a Trade Surplus – because our Petroleum-related imports are larger than our Trade Deficit.
~
President Obama yesterday said that his Administration has not done enough to address Climate Change. As far as I know, that is the only true statement he has ever made relating to Climate Science: Remember the Debate, when he Superstitiously bragged that he had laid enough Pipe to wrap the world with Oil and Gas Pipelines too many times? Remember the Debate, when he Superstitiously ridiculed his opponent Mitt Romney for once blocking a filthy Coal-burning plant from killing more children?
~
Remember the last two years’ ANOHOs (Annual Northeast Obama Hurricanes in October)? Obama learned by December 2010 (at the latest) at the Copenhagen Climate Conference that Earth’s climate had reached its tipping point. But instead of doing something about it, he pumped enough Oil and laid enough Pipe and Mined enough Coal to cause the biggest hurricane of all time, Superstorm Sandy.
~
~
But with President Obama’s program of selling out US citizens on Global Warming to make more money for BP and his other Oily cronies, next year’s ANOHO will very likely be an even bigger Superstorm than Sandy!
~
With President Obama’s insane, stupid, and expensive Bribery idea of pumping Petroleum through a giant Pipeline to Texas(!) [which already has plenty of Oil], he remains in complete denial of Global Warming: The most anti-science President we’ve ever had, and just at the time that we need a President who can tell the truth about Climate Change without having to consider how big a Bribe BP is going to give him and his Interior Secretary, Ken “Horse Burgers” Salazar.
~
Speaking of BP, looks like they just made a ridiculous deal. As reported here at FDL at the time, BP was ‘paying people off’ by paying them only the estimate of what they would have earned in two years without the BP Oil Spew in the Gulf of Mexico. But many of these people lost something worth many times that much, for their families had fished the Gulf for generations. They lost the family business, and BP, with Obama’s help, paid them a disgraceful pittance. Also, the Coast Guard was supposed to protect our coast, and should have prevented that Chemical Company from spraying that toxic Dispersant, which may have permanently ruined Gulf waters, including the seafood.
~
David Letterman last night, when introducing Steely Dan’s Donald Fagan to perform his new song Fix the Weather in the World, said “I was into Steely Dan. I’d smoke a lot of weed.” His band director Paul Schaefer seemed to agree: “That was you!” Letterman confirmed: “That was me!” One must hope, for his own safety, that President Obama and the DEA don’t suspect that Letterman is now in possession of pot. But even if he is, Leave him alone, Mr. President!
~
~
Tomorrow, the Green-Rainbow Party will hold its Convention in Worcester, Massachusetts, beginning at 9 am. 2012 Presidential candidate Jill Stein will speak there, and 2012 Green Vice Presidential nominee Cheri Honkala will be the Keynote Speaker. You should attend if you can. And if you’re passing through Western Massachusetts on the way to Worcester, and you’d like to carpool, please let me know, because, otherwise, I’ll be on my way walking. But I’ll be there at the Convention for sure, I wouldn’t miss it. Giant Green Women From Earth!
(UPDATE: This part is over: It was a smashing success!)

ObamaDems Unveil Insane & Stupid Climate-Science-Denial Mass Suicide Plan that Fracks All the Children to Death & Spawns Giant Hurricanes

ObamaDems Unveil Insane & Stupid Climate-Science-Denial Mass Suicide Plan that Fracks All the Children to Death & Spawns Giant Hurricanes – by NormanB (“Deviations from the Norm”)

 

What is the most important issue in this 2012 US Presidential Election? Does either of these guys even have a philosophy?

“There is only one really serious philosophical question, and that is suicide,” Albert Camus taught us in his absurdist essay The Myth of Sisyphus. Should I, or should we commit suicide? That is the most important question before us this Presidential Election, just as it is the most important political question we face every day of our lives; because, if the answer is “Yes, we should commit suicide,” then all the other issues pale in comparison. And if we go ahead and commit suicide, the rest of the questions will no longer matter. In a way.

In order to get energy for our nation, President Obama and his pretend opponent Mitt Romney are advocating burning Coal and Oil. They’re both advocating Onshore Drilling and Offshore Drilling and Fracking and Coal Mining Shale Mining and Nuclear Energy. During the most recent Debate President Obama (nominally the more Left of the two because he’s a Democrat) again attacked Romney from the Right, saying that Romney had once, as Governor of Massachusetts, said that a Coal Plant “‘kills people.’” The President’s meaning was already clear, but he went on to emphatically state that he would never stand in the way of Coal, because he believes in “Clean Coal”: There is actually no such thing as Clean Coal, yet the President keeps lying about this non-existent product.

Yes, Romney said Coal kills. And Obama’s EPA defined CO2 as a “Dangerous Pollutant.” This is what they both want to do to the children of America and the children of the world. Here’s proof that they both know that what they’re proposing is Murderous: http://www.politicususa.com/romnesia-spreads-paul-ryan-forgets-romneys-coal-kills-record.html and http://blog.heritage.org/2009/12/07/epa-formally-declares-co2-a-dangerous-pollutant/

I wouldn’t be surprised if they’re not both laughing it up together at the electorate’s cluelessness: “We’ll trick the people in North Dakota into Frack-poisoning their own water!” “We’ll trick and intimidate the Coal Miners into killing their own children!” “We’ll trick the country into getting rid of its trees!”

So, the Obromneys have decided that mass suicide is alright. Let’s just ignore science and burn even more Fossil Fuels. Let’s burn Nuclear fires too, and tell them that it helps the climate. Yes, it’s true, killing off the children is how a society commits mass suicide. But I just don’t believe that it’s right, so I can’t go along with the President on this one.

Lund University in Sweden proved my friend Jack Herer’s hypothesis that growing Hemp for clean fuel on 6% of US arable land would produce more than enough energy to power our entire country, with no net emissions of CO2 or other Greenhouse Gases. Science tells us there is a way to get our energy without committing suicide. But President Obama says we should commit suicide by superstitiously burning more of these Fossil Fuels that are destroying the delicate climate balance that has kept humans as the dominant animal species on the planet, for the last hundred centuries.

Before that, our planet was going through an Ice Age, and there were giant cats and giant elephant-like creatures and giant bears and giant wolves. The climate was perfect for them. Then, that Ice Age ended in a period of intense Global Warming. Right then, most of the animals larger than us died off. The climate became perfect for humans. In this new Global Warming period, if it’s allowed to proceed, humans and other animals for whom this climate is now perfect will die off. http://my.firedoglake.com/normanb/2010/11/11/breakthrough-swedish-hemp-energy-study-corroborates-hemp-emperor-herer/ and  http://mamamojournal.blogspot.com/2010/11/hemp-energy-farming-breakthrough-study.html and http://www.electricemperor.com/eecdrom/ and http://www.sciencedirect.com/science?_ob=ArticleURL&_udi=B6V24-51C4RRC-4&_user=10&_coverDate=10%2F31%2F2010&_rdoc=1&_fmt=high&_orig=search&_origin=search&_sort=d&_docanchor=&view=c&_searchStrId=1537022627&_rerunOrigin=google&_acct=C000050221&_version=1&_urlVersion=0&_userid=10&md5=2c65f9591666c0e3039de2fae1c04549&searchtype=a

Welcome to Jonestown, USA! Obama and Romney both say “Drink the Kool Aid!” What other choice do we have? Science tells us that with Hemp we can avoid killing all the world’s children with dangerous and deadly Carbon Dioxide. But our President advises us to go ahead and kill them anyway.

If other candidates do recognize the truth, they may be afraid to state it. Green Party Presidential nominee Jill Stein is the only Presidential candidate stressing the fact that we can stop Global Warming, quickly, and it would energize and enrich our nation. And it would avoid mass suicide – it would avoid killing the children. Won’t somebody think of the children?! Listen to Jill Stein’s speeches: She says over and over again: “We can stop [Global Warming].” We can.

November 5, 2012, the day before the rigged Election, the day before millions of Americans will drink the Kool Aid, Jill Stein will Debate Libertarian Presidential candidate Gary Johnson, the former Governor of New Mexico. You’ve already heard the non-Debates. Don’t drink the Kool Aid. http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/election-2012/wp/2012/10/26/gary-johnson-and-jill-stein-will-debate-one-on-one/ and http://www.examiner.com/article/update-reminder-third-party-debates-moved-to-monday-nov-5

*DANGER* UPDATE: Hurricane Sandy Turns Back Toward US as Greedy Disaster Capitalists and Dishonest Politicians Try to Save Their Investments

Hurricane Sandy Turns Away From US as Greedy Disaster Capitalists and Dishonest Politicians Try to Save Their Investments — by NormanB (“Deviations form the Norm”)

New title at 822 AM EDT Monday, October 29, 2012: UPDATE: Hurricane Sandy Turns Back Toward US as Greedy Disaster Capitalists and Dishonest Politicians Try to Save Their Investments

*DANGER* UPDATE: Hurricane Sandy has strengthened overnight and turned back toward the United States as expected. It is headed directly at New York City. *DANGER*

 

 

The story below and updates were in real time, while the hurricane was headed away and weakening. The real time UPDATE reports continue. http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/

Hurricanes usually turn right, as this one is doing now. Global-Warming Hurricane Sandy is turning away from the United States, and to this experienced hurricane watcher, it looks like “she” could miss us. But some companies have invested in this “disaster,” and want you to spend money on it.

http://www.bloomberg.com/video/hedging-a-hurricane-making-mother-nature-pay-22UNIxtOQRmpvAfMQSZCSw.html

Be afraid. Be very afraid. President Obama warned of the danger too. That’s when I breathed a major sigh of relief, because, as far as I know, President Obama has never told the truth about Climate Science in his life. Please notice weather-anomaly that he doesn’t mention the fact that a Global-Warming hurricane at this time of the Climate-Change year is related to this country’s superstitious practice of burning Oil and Coal for the profit of those who pay for our political campaigns. It’s called “The Bribery Paradigm.”

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/28/obama-hurricane-sandy_n_2035216.html

I’ve been keeping close track of the storm’s progress. After the raw data, I note some possibly significant changes. I’ve been watching hurricanes for a long time. I was born in Virginia, and lived in Florida most of my life. Both are likely targets for hurricanes and flooding. Here’s some backlogged live-blogging so you can see what’s been happening.

21 GMT 10/25/12  24.5N 75.6W

8:00 PM EDT Thu Oct 25
Location: 24.8°N 75.8°W
Moving: NNW at 17 mph: Storm motion: 315 degrees
Min pressure: 965 mb
Max sustained: 100 mph

Highest sustained winds have dropped from 110 early last night to 100 at 8pm to 80 now: Just barely a hurricane by that reckoning. It is traveling toward the US at 13 mph on a “315-degree” trajectory: 315 degrees is exactly Northwest; 360 is exactly North; 337.5 is exactly North-by-Northwest: These are numbers that indicate it will hit Cape Hatteras, the North Carolina coast, assuming it will turn right as hurricanes usually do.

If it continues in a Northwesterly direction it will make landfall before [South of] Cape Hatteras. A direct his on Hatteras could mean flooding in the Tidewater area of Southeastern Virginia, including most of the state’s largest cities, including Portsmouth where I was born and still have lots of relatives.

For a direct hit on New Jersey or New England, that digital compass direction will need to advance Eastward, toward 360 degrees then beyond zero:

If it very soon curves sharp right and goes beyond zero, then, here it comes! But there’s still some chance that it will head out to sea.

5:00 AM EDT Fri Oct 26
Location: 26.3°N 76.9°W
Moving: NW at 13 mph
Min pressure: 968 mb
Max sustained: 80 mph

National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration or NOAA (as in Noah’s Flood?) updates its info every 3 hours: At 8, 11, 2, and 5: -am and -pm.

For those wishing to keep checking for themselves, here is its link:
http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/

8:00 AM EDT Fri Oct 26
Location: 26.4°N 76.9°W
Moving: NW at 10 mph: Storm Motion: 325 degrees
Min pressure: 970 mb
Max sustained: 80 mph

The 8 am report shows that its position has barely changed in 3 hours, which is usually a sign of the hurricane building energy. Storm motion has further slowed to 10mph, and its direction has altered, yes, to the right, toward the North, and a little less West. Still 80 mph. The air pressure measured in the hurricane has raised/weakened, but just by 2 millibars, which is no doubt within the margin of error.

Trajectory at 7 am was 325 degrees: That’s exactly North-by-Northwest.

The 11 am report looks very bad for those of us here in the Northeast.

11:00 AM EDT Fri Oct 26
Location: 26.7°N 76.9°W
Moving: N at 6 mph
Min pressure: 970 mb
Max sustained: 80 mph

Pressure and wind speed remained about the same, but movement slowed and turned more Easterly, now aimed at the direct North:

If it continues to turn right, it’s headed here. (Probably.)

11:00 PM EDT Fri Oct 26
Location: 27.7°N 77.1°W
Moving: N at 7 mph: Storm motion: 350 degrees
Min pressure: 969 mb
Max sustained: 75 mph

Hurricane Sandy’s direction is 350 degrees: A little to West of due North (which is 360 degrees – or zero degrees): If it continues in a straight line, it hits the Southern North Carolina coast. Since I posted 12 hours ago, it has traveled one degree North: 70 miles. Since 12 hours ago, it has veered to the West by two tenths of a degree: That’s a little better for our chances here in the Northeast of avoiding landfall in New Jersey or Long Island.

Wind speed has dropped by 5mph since 12 hrs ago: If it drops one more degree, it will cease to be a hurricane. The measured air pressure has dropped since then, but only by an insignificant one millibar.

2:00 AM EDT Sat Oct 27
Location: 28.1°N 76.9°W
Moving: NNE at 7 mph: Storm motion: 015 degrees
Min pressure: 969 mb
Max sustained: 75 mph

Direction is now 015: The storm has turned sharp right: 25 degrees to the right since 3 hours ago. This could be following the expert-predicted pattern, and would not be good for us here in the Northeast. However, I have to hope that such a sharp right turn means that it is turning right as most hurricanes do, and that it will head on out to sea.

It is now headed directly at Cape Hatteras: The storm motion direction reading of 015 is slightly to the East of due North, but way to the West of exact North-by-Northeast, which is 045 degrees.

5:00 AM EDT Sun Oct 28
Location: 31.9°N 73.3°W
Moving: NE at 13 mph: Storm motion: 040 degrees
Min pressure: 960 mb
Max sustained: 75 mph

At this point, the storm is aimed at Nova Scotia, and at no part of the United States.

8:00 AM EDT Sun Oct 28
Location: 32.1°N 73.1°W
Moving: NE at 10 mph
Min pressure: 951 mb
Max sustained: 75 mph

11:00 AM EDT Sun Oct 28
Location: 32.5°N 72.6°W
Moving: NE at 14 mph
Min pressure: 951 mb
Max sustained: 75 mph

2:00 PM EDT Sun Oct 28
Location: 32.8°N 71.9°W
Moving: NE at 14 mph: Storm motion: 050 degrees
Min pressure: 951 mb
Max sustained: 75 mph

5:00 PM EDT Sun Oct 28
Location: 33.4°N 71.3°W
Moving: NE at 15 mph: Storm motion: 050 degrees
Min pressure: 952 mb
Max sustained: 75 mph

As I reported 38 hours ago, the storm if moving out to sea, and is aimed at no part of the United States, and now it’s not aimed at North America at all, just out to sea. The fear is that it will react with the cold front sweeping Southward through our country to cause a super storm. And saying such things sells a lot of soap. And even more Oil, Coal, and Natural Gas.

The Storm motion is the compass direction. 000 or 360 is North. 180 is South. 90 is East. 270 is West. The digital indication tells more precisely what direction the storm is headed. It is headed out to sea and currently turning right, to the East, away from the United States. It is still possible that this hurricane will turn back to the left/West. If the storm does start to turn back toward this country, I will let you know in real time in the Comments section below.

But notice that since 11 pm two days ago, wind speed has remained a steady 75 mph (the minimum wind speed to maintain a “hurricane” classification): If it dropped by one mile per hour, it would no longer be a hurricane. If the weather service were to have already admitted that it’s no longer a hurricane, or that it’s no longer likely to hit the US, well all that money spending on preparedness will stop. Cristy and Obama will have to stop posturing trying to look Presidential.

The storm is now turning right as they usually do, and this last digital direction reading shows it going even further right. Right is away from us. If it comes back left, it could hurt us. I will let you know if it turns back left: That’s the only way it can hurt us.

Lower barometric pressure makes for bigger storms: Cyclones, such as hurricanes, typhoons, and tornadoes, are low-pressure storms, and they spin counter-clockwise if North of the Equator. Higher air pressure lessens the intensity of such storms. The pressure was going up early Friday morning, then it held steady from 8 am Friday to 2 am Saturday. Then it started dropping, a little. By 8 am Sunday, it had dropped to it’s lowest point. At last report, it had gone up by a statistically insignificant one millibar. I’ll patch in the 8 pm report here as soon as it comes in.

UPDATE:

8:00 PM EDT Sun Oct 28
Location: 34.0°N 70.9°W
Moving: NE at 15 mph: Storm motion: 050 degrees
Min pressure: 950 mb
Max sustained: 75 mph

The air pressure has dropped by two millibars: That’s almost holding steady. The wind speed is still minimum for a hurricane. Tropical Storm Sandy is still headed out to sea. That 050-degree Storm direction is just to the East of due Northeast, which is 045 degrees. To threaten us in the US, it would have to turn left: It would have to rejust that compass direction back to the West of North: If Sandy now went straight Northward, it would be a direct strike on Boston. But it’s not doing that, it’s headed out to sea: It’s now not aimed at any part of the US or Canada. I’ll let you know in real time in the Comments section if it comes back our way. For now, it looks like we’re safe. Woo-hooo!

It’s quite possible that Tropical Storm Sandy is going away and can’t hurt us. Meanwhile, there’s a rigged Presidential Election right now in the United States. Get back to work on politics, my fellow journalists.

11:00 PM EDT Sun Oct 28
Location: 34.5°N 70.5°W
Moving: NE at 14 mph: Storm motion: 045 degrees
Min pressure: 950 mb
Max sustained: 75 mph

For a full 48 hours now the wind speed has not wavered from 75 mph – the minimum hurricane-speed wind. The pressure has remained 950 millibars since the last report, the lowest it’s been since leaving the Bahamas. Barometric pressure has not dropped significantly since 8 am this morning. The Storm motion is now due Northeast: 045 degrees: That means it has veered leftward by 5 degrees since three hours ago. It will have to shift another 90 degrees leftward to follow the path projected by the learn’d astronomer meteorologists.

If the storm proceeds in its current direction, it will not strike the mainland of North America, but it will hit Newfoundland. If it were to go straight North, the eye would cut across Cape Cod, Massachusetts, and then make land at the Maine-New Hampshire border. If, on the other hand, it makes the predicted 90 degree leftward turn, and if this 5 degree variance in the last three hours is the beginning of a turn that will continue for a full 90 degrees, then I’m in for a world of pain, because it will be heading right for the Eastern end of Long Island and Long Island Sound: That could cause flooding, even here on a little brook flowing into a tiny river that’s a tributary of the mighty Connecticut. A flood on this brook washed away a bridge and killed people a hundred years ago.

Don’t mistake this for sound medical advice. As cmaukonen pointed out in the Comments section below, I’m a blogger with an agenda, not a meteorologist. I am just reporting the facts as the National Weather Service gives them, and making a few points here and there. I don’t have training to calculate on anything other than those physical facts. So, I am only reporting those raw physical data. So, don’t accept this as good news – it’s not. There is opportunity to be hopeful. If at 8 am tomorrow the storm is still headed to the Northeast, that is further reason to be hopeful. If however the 11 am update tomorrow morning shows that the storm has missed its turn, and is still traveling Northeasterly, the learn’d ones may have wisely erred on the side of caution, and it might not come here.

Don’t start partying yet. Unless partying is your lifestyle. I don’t recommend hurricane parties, but no-hurricane parties are OK with me. For now, I’m hunkered down and harboring cautious evacuees, but if the storm makes that 90-degree turn, we may all have to evacuate to someplace not on the water.

*DANGER* UPDATE:

5:00 AM EDT Mon Oct 29
Location: 35.9°N 70.5°W
Moving: N at 15 mph
Min pressure: 946 mb
Max sustained: 85 mph

8:00 AM EDT Mon Oct 29
Location: 36.8°N 71.1°W
Moving: NNW at 20 mph: Storm motion: 330 degrees
Min pressure: 946 mb
Max sustained: 85 mph

Overnight, Hurricane Sandy turned left, more Westerly: Back toward the East coast of the United States, much like meteorologists had forecast. The storm has turned left by a reported 75 degrees: Thats 75 degrees of the forecast 90 degree turn already accomplished, by the predicted time, 8 am. Winds remained at 85 mph all night: Now Sandy is solidly a hurricane, by definition (Category 1).

Pressure dropped by 4 millibars in the 3 hours leading up to the 5 am update from NOAA, but did not drop further between 5 and 8. The storm is headed directly at Staten Island: If this keeps up, things could be terrible in New York City, Long Island, the Jersey Shore, Connecticut, Western Massachusetts, Vermont, and the next country up. I’m in Western Massachusetts. I’m watching closely. You should too.


*DANGER* UPDATE:

11:00 AM EDT Mon Oct 29
Location: 37.5°N 71.5°W
Moving: NNW at 18 mph: Storm motion: 330 degrees
Min pressure: 943 mb
Max sustained: 90 mph

Winds have increased to 90 mph. Barometric pressure has dropped another 3 millibars in the past 3 hours. It is still headed directly at Staten Island, now at 18 mph – 3 hours ago it was coming at 20 mph. It’s still a Category 1 hurricane. At this point, the only thing that could save our country from a direct hit is … well … nothing. Batten down the hatches!

My aunt lived in Beach Haven on Long Beach Island on the Jersey shore, the third house from the Atlantic Ocean. One day a big storm came by surprise, not a hurricane, a Nor’easter. I guess it was out of season, and the two houses between her and the Ocean were unoccupied at the time. The storm washed those two houses away as my aunt watched from her house.

For years, in fact, for decades those two lots sat vacant with their mostly-flattened fences lying in the beach sand as a reminder to any prospective buyer that houses built here are destined to wash away. Eventually, of course, greed got the better of some builder/speculator, who built and sold houses there to unsuspecting pigeons whose houses will wash away someday (probably much sooner than other houses). Elliott read that little blurb in a comment, and right away reminded me that this storm was so big that it had a name: The Long Island Express, in 1938.

(Yes, my aunt weathered a storm as an adult, way back in 1938. And my uncle, her husband, fought in World War I. That’s right. I’m old. But I wasn’t born [not for 18 years yet] when that 1938 storm blew in.)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Troubled by what I said about President Obama never telling the truth about Climate Science? I’ll tell you what I’m gonna do: I’m a poor man, but I’ll put money on it: A guarantee: $100 to the first person who can prove to me that President Obama has ever told the truth about Climate Science. Here’s all you have to do to collect: Make a copy of the speech where he tells the truth: Include the date and location, and the chemical formula of the Greenhouse Gas about which he told the truth. (CO2, CH4, NO2, O3, H2O, SF6, NF3, Freon, or Ether.)

Include why you believe what he said is true, and please, include a copy of the entire speech: This step is crucial: You see, the President could just list a bunch of troubling facts. But if he doesn’t initiate policies that deal with those troubling facts, and if he was just listing them to trick people into voting for him, that’s what I consider a lie, not the truth. If anywhere in the speech, the President mentions Clean Coal or Clean Nukes or the need to Drill and Mine and Frack and Nuke more (as he always does), then the speech is a lie. This hundred dollars is burning a Global Warming hole in my pocket! Somebody please prove me wrong.

Join Now: President Jill Stein’s Sticky Green New Deal: Hemp For Victory — by NormanB (“Deviations from the Norm”)

 

 

It’s crunch time for Jill Stein’s Green Presidential campaign. If you want to help us win the Sticky Green Revolution, let’s put it into high gear!

Most people want a Third Party. Most people want Legalized Medical Marijuana. Most people want complete withdrawal from warmongering. Most people want restoration of our Human/Civil/Constitutional Rights. http://www.usatoday.com/news/politics/story/2011-12-12/third-party-poll/51866458/1 Still, our campaign is completely out of money. We need just 20 Stoner Donors in each state – the same amount of people who come together to smoke a pound of pot.

That number is based on each of the 20 people buying a $250 bag of Karma: If you usually buy a $250 or more bag of pot, then, this time give that money to Jill Stein’s campaign, and let’s get this Legalized once and for all, and get ourselves free. If you’re the kind of person that only buys a $60 bag, then give that $60 to Jill. But if you’re the one who buys an $800 bag, fork it over: We’re working for you!

The campaign has no money, but the Marijuana industry pulls in over a trillion dollars a year. We’re only asking for a drop in the bucket, in exchange for your freedom and dignity. And if we Elect Jill Stein, she won’t poison all the children in the world with Fracking, as Obama and Romney have promised to do.  https://jillstein.nationbuilder.com/donate

And don’t worry about missing a week of loyalty to your usual local grower, dealer, importer, or runner: When President Jill Stein removes Marijuana from Schedule One on Day One of the Stein Administration, Medical Marijuana will be Legal, and we can all start breathing easier! Beginning that first Legal day, the skills that our local and regional suppliers have will be very valuable, and they could have lots more customers.

The Jill Stein for President campaign is on the ballot in 32 states now, and in the next few days with your help, we could make another seven. Maybe even eight:

North Carolina’s ballot access laws are regressive, repressive, reprehensible, and wrong: 80,000 signatures! There’s a petition to ask North Carolina to be reasonable and let Jill on the ballot.  http://www.change.org/petitions/north-carolina-state-board-of-elections-add-jill-stein-representative-for-the-green-party And you can download the actual ballot access petition to sign it if you’re a North Carolina registered voter. If you do download the petition, please get people without internet access to sign it too, before you send it in (right away). You can download it here. http://www.ncgreenparty.org/ Here’s another petition from North Carolina. http://www.change.org/petitions/all-voters-join-the-green-party-and-support-jill-stein

We need to get lots of Virginia voter signatures really fast to get Jill on the ballot in that state. 415-425-3733. Please hurry!  http://www.vagreenparty.org/ballotaccess/ballotaccess2012.html Nebraska too. http://www.nebraskagreens.org/contact_us/  And Wyoming.  asunshinemoon@yahoo.com   We also need to hit it in Kentucky  (http://kygreenparty.org/), Alabama (http://www.alabamagreens.org/), North Dakota (https://www.facebook.com/greenpartynd), and Rhode Island (http://www.greens.org/ri/).

In November’s Presidential Election, if Jill Stein carries: (1) The states that now have Medical Marijuana; and (2) the states voting on it this year; and (3) just one more state, then she’ll be President, and we’ll be free. Forty-four of the 51 states are trying to Legalize Marijuana this year, and it’s on the ballot in ten. That means that we really have to rally those petition signers in North Dakota, where people will be voting on Marijuana this fall. Please help us reach the pot vote in North Dakota if you can.

This Election we have four Right-wing candidates with connections to the Koch brothers and to the Fracking industry: Obama, Romney, Ron Paul, and Gary Johnson. The first two also have very close connections to Bain Capital and to Central American Death Squads. It’s Koch versus pot, because the Kochs and their cohorts are in the business of denying Global Warming. That’s exactly what Obama, Romney, Paul, and Johnson are doing when they say that Fracking is legitimate science: They’re lying and denying.

Hemp has the highest biomass of any plant. That means more weight of Hemp can be grown per acre than any other plant. That means that it is the only way to combat Global Warming: Having the highest biomass, it is the one material in the world from which we can produce the most alcohol, and alcohol is a clean fuel that can power any internal combustion engine without causing Global Warming. That’s because alcohol (Ethanol) and other biofuels hold no Carbon at all, other than what the living plant absorbed from our atmosphere.

Hemp fuels are Carbon Neutral and have Zero net Carbon emissions when burned. Hemp is also the richest source of biodiesel in the world, as the seeds need only be squeezed: They are 40% Diesel fuel. And, having the highest biomass, Hemp is also the richest source of “Natural” Gas, except the biogas that comes from Hemp – the same gas, Methane/CH4 – causes no Global Warming when burned, like Fracked Gas does, because mined and drilled “Natural” Gas comes from fossils whose constituents have long been out of our air and add lots of Carbon to it, while Hempen biogas holds only the Carbon that the living plants just absorbed – Carbon Neutral.

Lund University in Sweden proved Jack Herer’s hypothesis that growing Hemp on 6% of our arable land can supply all of this country’s energy without causing Global Warming. Vote for Jill Stein. Legalize Marijuana. Make our Government stop denying Global Warming. We’ve got to do it now.  http://my.firedoglake.com/normanb/2010/11/11/breakthrough-swedish-hemp-energy-study-corroborates-hemp-emperor-herer/

Obama’s Al Qaeda Lite Mercenary Terrorists Conducting Genocide Against World’s Oldest Christian Community

Obama’s Al Qaeda Lite Mercenary Terrorists Conducting Genocide of World’s Oldest Christian Community — by NormanB (“Deviations from the Norm”)

 

 

During his journey on the road to Damascus in Syria, Saul had a vision or hallucination of Jesus four years after his Execution: Saul had been a tax collector and a scourge to Christians (so the story goes). He was immediately transformed; he changed his name from Saul (“Great”) to Paul (“Humble”), and was later called St. Paul. He became the world’s foremost promoter of Christianity, writing 14 of the 27 books in the New Testament. This was the practical beginning of Christianity. Syrian Christians still speak the same Aramaic language Jesus spoke. Syria is home to the Nasrani: The Nazarenes. Many people think Jesus was a Nazarene.

They are called the “Syrian Rebels” or the “Syrian Opposition.” Fighters with the Al Qaeda-manned Free Syrian Army (armed through Turkey by the US and its allies on President Obama’s orders) are conducting Genocide against the world’s oldest Christian community.  http://www.presstv.ir/detail/2012/08/09/255390/turkish-ambulances-take-arms-into-syria/#.UDHOHkRMHJw and http://ncm.org/news/press/as_fighting_in_syria_continues_nazarenes_in_neighboring_countries_respond/ and http://friendsofsyria.wordpress.com/2012/08/18/hague-and-clintons-tax-payers-money-butchering-innocent-people/ and http://mobile.reuters.com/article/idUSBRE8701OK20120801?irpc=932

Here you can watch the Free Syrian Army Torture a man to death by cutting his throat for supporting Assad, and hear the US-backed Terrorist publicly proclaim the FSA’s intention and goal: “Death to all Government supporters” including the Syrian Christians, associating them with shabihas,” or “thugs” of the Assad Government. The segment on Syria, from Lebanon’s New TV, begins at 12:50 of the following video clip: At 14:10, you’ll hear the Terrorists’ Genocide pronouncement. http://www.linktv.org/mosaic/20120813/mosaic-news-08-13-12-world-news-from-the-middle-east-video

If President Obama pushes ahead with his proposed “No-Fly Zone” [an act of war], then the Al Qaeda-affiliated Terrorists can use that cover (Obama’s bombing by of civilian areas in the No-Fly Zone, like in Libya) to carry out their twin Genocides, against both the minority Shia Muslims there – Assad is one – and the minority Christians, most of whom support the Syrian Government. US weapons smuggled to the group in Syria called Al Qaeda in Iraq from Turkey made their way to Iraq, where Al Qaeda in Iraq then took credit for deadly attacks on Shia pilgrims there. http://jafarianews.com/2012/08/iraq-attacks-on-shias-and-lawyers-kill-19/

Al Qaeda may well carry out that threat to destroy the Christians of Syria, just as Obama’s Al Qaeda Terrorist Mercenaries in Libya Genocided the Black people of Libya, for supporting Qadaffi. http://my.firedoglake.com/normanb/2012/07/08/us-backed-al-qaida-manned-oil-dictatorship-genociding-torturing-black-libyans-obama-ny-times-say-rigged-election-was-cool/

And, people in Israel suspect that Al Qaeda has it in for them. They’ve said as much. Here the American Israeli Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) discusses its concern over the influx of Al Qaeda beligerent to Israel. http://www.aipac.org/NearEastReport/pdf/NER-20120809.pdf

Iraq’s priceless biblical antiquities were looted for profit during the Iraq War. Furthermore, because they were harvested by looters rather than archaeologists, massive amounts of the historical integrity was lost when the items were found. And now Syria’s priceless biblical antiquities, those in the museums and those in the ground, will be looted and sold by war profiteers. President Obama has no right to do this to yet another country. He has no right to destroy these people and these treasures. The antiquities and the Christian community that his Al Qaeda Mercenaries seek to annihilate have existed for thousands of years. They are part of the world’s heritage.  http://www.nsearch.com/blogs/350/3402/syrian-antiquities-can-t-escape

Syria is no threat to the United States. Syrian fighting would never have started if we weren’t sending arms to the Rebels. It would end if we stop. The Syrian people do not want war. We have no right to impose it. Won’t somebody think of the children? The attack that US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton exploited to push for US intervention in Syria, the Al Houla Massacre, was actually carried out by the Al Qaeda side, not the Syrian Government, as Sec. Clinton claimed in her lies about the incident. In truth, these were Shia children.

 

 

One can see that the Rebel forces filming it (with top professional equipment) are there in plenty of time to manipulate the children, unwittingly demonstrating that the attack has just happened, because rigor mortis has not yet set in. And it was in fact the FSA Rebels who killed those children, according to witnesses. They killed them, so they and Clinton could lie about it, pretending that Assad was responsible.

We just lost two wars; got smeared by Iraq. And now Obama is mongering to start a war with the three allies Syria, Iraq, and Iran. Look at logic: Iraq beat us by itself. Teamed up with two other countries, and armed by bordering Russia, they’ll obviously smear us again. But it will raise the price of Oil, which is what Obama’s really about.  http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2874993/posts

President Obama used to tell us that Al Qaeda was the enemy, just a few months ago. Of course, while he was saying it, he was running bombing cover for Al Qaeda in May 2012 (then called the “Libyan Rebels”) as they carried out the Libyan Genocide.  http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-503544_162-57425645-503544/obama-defeat-of-al-qaeda-within-our-reach/

Meanwhile, the Shia Genocide is picking up steam worldwide: Shia are now being killed and forced from their homes in Pogroms in Burma, and under Obama in Bahrain, India, Syria, and Saudi Arabia. In addition, Iran is dominated by Shia, so the worldwide Shia Genocide will take care of them too.

And of course, Obama like all Oil puppets wants to raise the price of Oil, and keep us on the Oil Standard. And that keeps Medical Marijuana patients off Hash Oil. Obama can’t allow Legalization of Marijuana because the same plant, Hemp, provides clean fuels that emit no Greenhouse Gases, and in massive amounts, much cheaper than drilling for Oil or Gas. Medical Marijuana and Hash Oil alleviate suffering and prolong lives of patients with AIDS, ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease), Skin Cancer, and other deadly maladies. If President Obama refuses to remove Marijuana from Schedule One, lots of those patients will die. Oh, yeah, he already did. Lots of them already died.

Those patients didn’t deserve to die over President Obama’s Global Warming Denial, his insane Marijuana policy, or his political ambitions. Neither do the Christians of Syria.

President Obama’s Climate-Science Denial and His Insane Marijuana Policy Spark Refinery Fire

President Obama’s Climate-Science Denial and His Insane Marijuana Policy Spark Refinery Fire — by NormanB (“Deviations from the Norm”)

 

Refining Petroleum Oil is a superstitious act. Even if the President “inherited” his superstition and climate-science denial from George W. Bush, even so, when he (three-and-a-half years ago) swore to protect and defend the United States, he promised not to let anti-scientific superstition threaten our very survival, no matter how much the Oil companies are paying. If Oil refineries are still operating tomorrow, it is because we are all victims of corrupt politicians like Barack Obama.

It is time for the President to stop denying the facts of climate science. July, the month that just ended, was the warmest month ever. The last year has been the warmest on record. Drought and fires are everywhere. Burning Fossil Fuels (Coal and Petroleum products [Oil, Gasoline, Natural Gas, Propane, Butane]) causes Global Warming. Specifically, it causes the Greenhouse Effect, first noted in 1826, when Coal burning really got cooking, in the Industrial Revolution. The United States should use science to get Clean Energy, instead of using Bribery to get Fossil Fuels.

There is no Clean Coal or Clean Natural Gas or Clean Nuclear Power. President Obama is lying when he says that these things exist. These lies are killing people. The US does not need to burn Fossil Fuels or exploit Nuclear Energy.

Mining Fossil Fuels makes them more expensive. Speculating on them makes them more expensive. Printing money makes them more expensive. Every spec that is mined or pumped raises the actual price, because is less is left in the ground, so they become more dear.

Cannabis is by far the world’s richest source of Ethanol, a Clean Fuel that causes no Global Warming. Internal combustion engines can operate on Ethanol. Cannabis seeds are the richest source of Biodiesel fuel. All Diesel-fueled vehicles and Oil-burning heaters can run on Hemp seed oil. Power Plants now burning Coal can instead burn Hemp seed Oil, without causing any Global Warming.

Hemp is also the world’s richest source of Gas, but the Biogas derived from Hemp causes no Global Warming, unlike what President Obama calls “Natural” Gas. Hemp-derived Biogas burns without causing climate change, because, like all Hemp fuels, it holds only the Carbon that the living plants absorbed as CO2 from the air: Hemp fuels are Carbon Neutral. There are nearly a trillion tons of Carbon in the atmosphere. It is foolish, insane, stupid, irresponsible, and diabolical to add more.

Lund University in Sweden proved Jack Herer’s hypothesis from his self-published classic The Emperor Wears No Clothes: That the US can supply all of its current energy usage and future energy needs by growing Hemp on 6% of our arable land. http://my.firedoglake.com/normanb/2010/11/11/breakthrough-swedish-hemp-energy-study-corroborates-hemp-emperor-herer/  and  http://mamamojournal.blogspot.com/2010/11/hemp-energy-farming-breakthrough-study.html  http://www.electricemperor.com/eecdrom/

Obama says he want us to be Energy Independent with Natural Gas, but that would kill billions of people with Global Warming, including everyone’s children. If we use clean Carbon Neutral Hemp-derived fuels instead, we can be Energy Independent and stop Global Warming with the very first harvest, two or three months from now. Hemp has the highest biomass of any plant; that is, more weight of Hemp can be produced per acre than of any other plant. Hemp stalks can be planted one inch apart, so that four billion plants can be grown per square mile.

But now the President is ready to start another Oil War. He’s got that superstitious Oil-drilling regime attacking the US Gulf Coast. And now he’s got Oil companies attacking the Alaskan coast too. Dredging our coast [which they do for offshore Oil] is an irresponsible and anti-scientific, criminal act. The US Military should be turning those would-be dredgers back. Why aren’t they protecting the integrity of our coasts? Why aren’t they protecting the American people from these attacks?

And, as an extra added bonus, keeping Marijuana off the market ensures suffering and and early death for millions of Medical Marijuana patients. Why is this Administration intentionally making all these people suffer?

Obama is supporting Onshore Drilling, Offshore Drilling, Nukes, Tar Sands, Shale Oil, Fracking, Pipelines, and Refineries, lots of Refineries: All of these plans are superstitious, nothing less! We don’t need them; they are extremely harmful to Americans and to our country; and they cause Global Warming. But somehow, instead of defending our country and its people, President Obama wants them, the Fossil Fuel frauds, not Marijuana.

Can you spell Bribery?
