Kill 12 in Old Paree World Goes Ape Shit; 2,000 Christians Killed For The Same Reason In The Same Week And the World Is Quite

From the What Lives Matter Files:

Kill 12 in Old Paree and the world goes into conniptions, demonstrations worldwide, the new Charlie Hebdo edition sells out in Paris, and copies are selling for hundreds of dollars on eBay. Wow, 12 dead and the world goes ape shit! Now compare all this uproar to the fuss raised when the news was released two days ago, 1/12/2015, that Boko Haram’s ‘deadliest massacre’ where they reportedly butchers 2,000 Christians: ‘Killing went on and on’ in Nigeria.
“In August, Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau announced the establishment of his “Islamic Caliphate,” quickly taking over every corner of Borno State in northeast Nigeria. But one town called Baga, populated by thousands of Nigerians along the western shores of Lake Chad, held out. Anchored by a multinational military base manned by troops from Niger to Chad, it was the last place in Borno under the national government’s control. Over the weekend, that changed.
“Hundreds of bodies still litter the bushes of Baga, Nigeria — mostly women, children and elderly victims too slow to outrun Boko Haram fighters who stormed the town with explosives and assault rifles in recent weeks, in the Islamic extremists’ bloodiest massacre yet. Amnesty International called Boko Haram’s recent attacks in Baga — near the Nigeria-Chad border – possibly ‘the “deadliest massacre” in the history of the violent group. An Amnesty report suggests the town was razed and as many as 2,000 people have been killed.'”
What fuss, what uproar? None, none at all. Why is the death of 12 in Paris so much more important to the world’s News coverage than the 2,000 Christians who died for the same reason in Nigeria? Oh, they weren’t insulting cartoonist? Is that it?

Dueling Datasets: Is 2014 The Hottest Year On record Or Not?

Alright now I am confused, is was 2014 the hottest year on record or not?  The Japan Meteorological Agency boldly claims that it was.  JMA has announced that 2014 was the hottest year in more than 120 years of record-keeping — by far. NOAA is expected to make a similar call in a couple of weeks and so is NASA.  However, no such announcement has been forthcoming from NASA as atmospheric temperature measurements by satellites and confirmed by weather balloons (which are the only comprehensive global temperature measurements in existence), one of the two atmospheric temperature reporting entities,Remote Sensing Systems, reported that 2014 was not the hottest year ever (since 1978, when satellite measurements began), only the sixth warmest.
Atmospheric temperature measurements by satellite did not rank 2014 as a record year despite the fact that the global average surface temperature data are likely to show that 2014 was one of the warmest years – and possibly the warmest year – on record.
An analysis of US firm Remote Sensing Systems’ (RSS) satellite instrument data for the temperature of the lower troposphere shows that 2014 was the sixth warmest year on record.
This means that the so called pause in global warming has continued through 2014 on the basis of RSS data for atmospheric temperatures. Since 1979 the long term trend in RSS data shows an increase in global atmospheric temperatures of 0.12oC per decade although this has flattened in recent years.
The global average temperature anomaly, or variance to the long-term average, for the lower troposphere in 2014 was 0.26oC compared with an anomaly of 0.55oC for 1998, the warmest year in the RSS data series which stretches back to 1979.
This week, the other reporting entity, the Earth System Science Center at the University of Alabamain Huntsville, reported that 2014 was the third warmest since 1979, barely edging out several other years such as 2002, 2005, and 2013.  Also see here at The New American “Climate Alarmists Deceive Again: 2014 Was Not Hottest on Record”
Satellite measurements of the temperature of the atmosphere rank 2014 as the third warmest year in the satellite record, according to the University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH).
The global average temperature anomaly – that is, the variance to the long term average global temperature between 1981 and 2010 – for the layer of the atmosphere from the surface up to around 8km in altitude known as the lower troposphere during 2014 was 0.27oC, according to UAH data.
This was just 0.01oC warmer than 2005 and just a few hundredths of a degree warmer than 2013 and 2002 – such small differences as to make the 2014 result statistically indistinguishable from these other years. This suggests that the so called pause or hiatus in global warming continued through 2014, at least in the satellite record.
The UAH analysis shows that the global temperature trend from 2002 through 2014 was a warming at the rate of +0.05oC per decade which is statistically insignificant. However, it is also the case that global temperatures have remained elevated throughout this period and that these years have averaged some 0.18oC above the baseline provided by the 30-year long term average and contain nine of the 10 warmest years – the warmest of all being 1998.
Contrary to forecasts by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), Fourth Assessment Report (AR-4) in 2007, it has been over 18 years since there has been any statistically significant increase in global temperatures, even though, according to NOAA, carbon dioxide CO2 concentrations have increased 8.4% since 1999, from 368.04 parts per million (ppm) to 398.78 ppm (this past December’s number). Very plainly adding CO2 to the atmosphere is not causing temperature change as claimed. Further, the plateau in temperatures shows that global climate models cannot be used for reliable prediction.
The UN weather agency says the global atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide hit an all-time high in 2013. The World Meteorological Organization released on Tuesday the results of last year’s research on levels of CO2 and other greenhouse gases. The WMO’s assessment is based on data from weather authorities and research institutes from around the world.  The report says the average volume of CO2 in the atmosphere hit a record high of 396 parts per million last year. The figure rose by 2.9 parts per million from 2012. It’s the largest annual increase since monitoring began in 1984. The report says the concentration of nitrous oxide was 325.9 parts per billion and the volume of methane reached 1,824 parts per billion. Both are new record highs. WMO officials say emissions of heat-trapping gases need to be cut by 80 percent, to keep the rise of temperatures within one degree Celsius until 2100. They also warn that CO2 will keep dissolving into the oceans, making them more acidic. They say if this trend continues, it would affect marine ecology. UN: CO2 levels RECORD HIGH
NOAA NCDC was released today, here it is:
In 2014, the contiguous United States (CONUS) average temperature was 52.6°F, 0.5°F above the 20th century average, and tied with 1977 as the 34th warmest year in the 120-year period of record. 2014 was slightly warmer than 2013 for the CONUS when the annual average temperature was 52.4°F. This marks the 18th consecutive year with an annual average temperature above the 20th century average for the CONUS. The last year with a below-average CONUS temperature was 1996. Since 1895, when national temperature records began, the CONUS has observed an average temperature increase of 0.13°F per decade.Precipitation averaged across the CONUS in 2014 was 30.76 inches, 0.82 inch above the 20th century average. This was the 40th wettest year on record for the CONUS. Over the 120-year period of record, precipitation across the CONUS has increased at an average rate of 0.14 inch per decade. 
The CONUS had its 33rd coolest winter on record, with much of the country east of the Rockies being cooler than average, mainly due to several Arctic cold-air outbreaks. Many states had their coldest winter since the 1970s. Seven states were top 10 cold, but no state was record cold. The cold winter in the Midwest resulted in the second largest Great Lakes ice cover in the 1973-2014 record. The western U.S. was warm during winter. Arizona had its fourth warmest winter, while California was record warm. The winter was dry for the CONUS, with a precipitation total 0.97 inch below average, the 17th driest on record. Below-average precipitation was observed in the West and Southern Plains where three states had a top 10 dry winter. The dry winter exacerbated drought conditions in California, where winter is the wet season, as well as in the Southwest and Southern Plains. The winter snow cover extent was the 10th largest on record.
Wht is only Japan’s Meteorological Agency the only one making the claim “It’s Official: 2014 Was the Hottest Year Ever Measured on Earth”?  Could thishave anything to do with it?
In June 1996, the Japan Council for Sustainable Development was established. The Council, consisting of representatives from the government, industry and NGOs, aims at facilitating dialogue among the members concerning the issues of sustainable development. As an advisory body to the Government, it is mandated to follow up on the progress of measures taken under the Plan every year. The Council undertook the first review in June 1996, and identified areas which require further improvement. In the area of global warming, it called for further effective measures to meet the targets set. In the field of waste management and recycling, activities of the line ministries and other entities should be effectively linked with a socio-economic system. And, concerning nature conservation, comprehensive and programmatic measures are necessary taking also into account endowments of the nearby natural environment.
In my opinion the UN, and its Green Supporters, created the Global Warming Hoax to force the world tom accept Agenda 21 from which the idea of Sustainable Development is spelled out.  Global Warming is a Trojan Horse  being used by those who are working to impose a one world government on the world.
“Effective execution of Agenda 21 will require a profound reorientation of all human society, unlike anything the world has ever experienced a major shift in the priorities of both governments and individuals and an unprecedented redeployment of human and financial resources. This shift will demand that a concern for the environmental consequences of every human action be integrated into individual and collective decision-making at every level.”

Pope Says Concern for Poor Is Gospel, Not Communism

Headlines this morning:

I have to agree with him on the first, concern is not Communism, nor is asking the people to give with a free, generous heart Communism. But when you use the force of government, like the second headline implies, to take from those who have to give to those who have not is a close kin of Communism.
Now to step off on a tangent. There are three major economic systems at play in the world today: Communism, Fascism, and Capitalism. The Solstice system are a mix of Communism and Capitalism, and is referred to as a mixed economy.

In a Communist system manufacturing, labor, and distribution. wealth creation and dispersal, is owned by the government. The government decides what is to be produced, who will produce it, and who will get it.
In a Fascist system individuals are allowed to own the means of production, but the government dictates what will be produced, the price at which it must be sold, and where it can be sold. The US economy has been creeping into a Fascist system for a long time now.

In a Capitalistic system individuals own the means of productions, set the price of what is produce using market forces, and decide the means of distribution via retail or direct marketing. The market, not government, dictates what will be produced, where it will be sold, and at what price. The Capitalistic system has raised more people out of poverty than any other economic system that has be devised by man.

Capitalism can be perverted into what is know as “Crony Capitalism” which is where certain industries get into bed with the government to rig the rules in their favor. Three example come to mind today, and that is the Solar, Wind and Ethanol industries none of whom could exist at their current scale without government force.

Muslims kill 12 in Paris Over Their Portrayal of The Prophet Mohammed

Hideout Log: Date 1/7/2015: Time 07:11 EST

Eleven people have been shot dead at the headquarters of the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in Paris, say police. Two masked gunmen are reported to have stormed the offices of the controversial publication, which has previously been attacked over its portrayal of the Prophet Mohammed.

Watch for the MSM to cut conniption trying to hold harmless the vast majority of Muslims and place the blame, not on the teaching of Islam, but on just a few radicals who do not represent the peace of Islam. They are full of shit, the only good Muslim is apostate.
This video, about 45 minutes, shows Islam’s history and expounds upon a number of FACTS that you may not see anywhere else. It explains why we may be afraid to see Islam for what it is based on its own doctrine and practice. Please take the time it takes to watch it.

The Islamic world is divided into the House of Islam and the House of War, the Dar al-Islam and the Dar al-harb. The Dar al-Islam is all those lands in which a Muslim government rules and the Holy Law of Islam prevails. Non-Muslims may live there on Muslim sufferance. The outside world, which has not yet been subjugated, is called the "House of War," and strictly speaking a perpetual state of jihad, of holy war, is imposed by the law. The law also provided that the jihad might be interrupted by truces as and when appropriate. In fact, the periods of peace and war were not vastly different from those which existed between the Christian states of Europe for most of European history. 

The law thus divides unbelievers theologically into those who have a book and profess what Islam recognizes as a divine religion and those who do not; politically into dhimmis, those who have accepted the supremacy of the Muslim state and the primacy of the Muslims, and harbis, the denizens of the Dar al-harb, the House of War, who remain outside the Islamic frontier, and with whom therefore there is in principle, a canonically obligatory perpetual state of war until the whole world is either converted or subjugated.

The Sun Is The Driver Man’s CO2 Is A Non Issue Says A Non Climate Scientistlarmist

From the Global Warming Hoax Department:
The Internet is the final stage of democracy, because it took information out of the hands of a few and into the hands of everybody. The American Meteorological Society argued for their retention of control of information and thereby the debate.

“What is important scientific information and how it is interpreted in the policy debates is an important part of our jobs.” “That is, after all, the very reasons for the mix of science and policy in the IPCC.” John Daly correctly called this “Scientism”.

Let me set one thing straight, the hoax I am referring to when I say, “From the Global Warming Hoax Department” is the hoax of blaming the world’s warming on man’s co2, not the fact that the world has warmed since the last Ice Age. I personally believe that the warming is over, and we are moving into a cooling people, I just hope that it does not cool on down into another Ice Age. Instead of co2 being the driver of the warming I believe it to be the sun that causes out periods of warming and cooling. I also believe that this “forcing”, to put in alarmists’ jargon, is related to the sunspots or lack thereof.

I make no claims of being a climate scientist, but am of average intelligence, if not above, and do have the ability to understand concepts, arguments, and statics, gained in acquiring two undergraduate degree, one in Electron Engineering and the other in Computer Information Systems, as well as an MBA. I am making no appeal to authority here, just giving argument to back up my assertion at the beginning of this paragraph. While no climate scientist I have followed the arguments both pro and con for at least the last 15 years.

The conclusion I have came to is that the world’s governments have joined in on the hoax being perpetrated by the UN’s IPCC to use as a whip to force the people into compliance with UN Agenda 21. The term “Conspiratorial Theorist ” is used to ridicule people who come to this conclusion to mitigate the damage they can do by spreading their opinions. Before the Internet this was easily done, no one would print their ideas, but the Internet has changed that, and people like me can self publish both on social media and on personal blogs. The Internet allows anyone and everyone the ability to research an issue, read the papers and studies at their leisure for little expense. Why do you think that the government is so hell bent on regulating the Web? Why countries like Iran and China limit both the source they can reach and what they in turn can say without arrest?

If they lose the control of information they lose control of the agenda, just like the Global Warming Hoaxers have lost control of the information and thus control of the debate, They resort to name calling, Denialist, Conspiratorial Theorist,

Here is a classic example of the Alarmists' attempt to control information from a leaked email from February 2, 2005.
Mike (Mann), I presume congratulations are in order – so congrats etc !

Just sent loads of station data to Scott. Make sure he documents everything better this time ! And don’t leave stuff lying around on ftp sites – you never know who is trawling them. The two MMs have been after the CRU station data for years. If they ever hear there is a Freedom of Information Act now in the UK, I think I’ll delete the file rather than send to anyone. Does your similar act in the US force you to respond to enquiries within 20 days? – our does ! The UK works on precedents, so the first request will test it. We also have a data protection act, which I will hide behind. Tom Wigley has sent me a worried email when he heard about it – thought people could ask him for his model code. He has retired officially from UEA so he can hide behind that. IPR should be relevant here, but I can see me getting into an argument with someone at UEA who’ll say we must adhere to it !

Control the Language, Control the Debate

When issues come up that divide people upon what course of action should be decided upon each side attempts to pick the word(s) that define the issue. Both, as to how they wish to present their side, and how they wish to portray the other(s) side’s position(s). The first side to lay claim to the words use to tag the issues gain a huge advantage in presenting their arguments. Picking a slogan is an exercise in propaganda, the goal is to get people to accept your argument without thinking. Examples abound…

The Abortion Issue:

Those favoring unlimited abortions quickly tagged their goal as “The Right to Choose”, and when those who believe that it’s wrong to kill a baby countered with “The Right to Life” tag they switched their tag to “A woman’s Right to Control Their Her Body” where it stands today. The battle still rages with more and more states limiting the unlimited right to get an abortion, but gains on the ‘The Right to Choose’ side with federal law (ObamaCare) requiring the payment for birth control by the insurance companies, as well as abortions for those who cannot afford to pay for them.

By picking “The Right to Choose” and “A woman’s Right to Control Their Her Body” it is an effort to cast those who oppose unlimited abortions as being against the rights of women in everything that they may choose to do instead of being for the rights of the unborn babies which they clarified with the tag “The Right to Life”.

The Environmental Issue:

Those favoring controlling what people can do with their land tagged their goal as “Substanable Growth”, while those who oppose the government’s control over a person’s property, as fas as I can appertain, are tagged “Stop Big Government”. The Sustainable Growth movement has its genesis in the UN’s Agenda 21, and for the most part has Slid under the most people’s awareness.

Another tag used by this group is “Endangered Species”, and use it to control what people can and cannot do with their own land and water. The Environmentalist use this to stop as many developments as they possibly can, suing for damage assessment studies where they can bring the law to bear.

By choosing Sustainable Growth as the tag it implies that anyone opposed is opposed to sustainability.

The Global Warming Issue:

The tag has gone from global warming, to climate change, to climate disruption, and now carbon pollution as it fail to get the respect those who wish to blame men for the warming of the earth during the last 60 years believed it deserved. They tagged those who did not agree with them as “Denialist” who re-tagged themselves as “Skeptics” and the other side as “Alarmists”.

By picking the word denialist there was a deliberate hope that the word would be associated with the “Holocaust Deniers”, in an attempt to get the people who paid slight attention to discount anything a “denier” might say. The other’s side tagging them as “alarmist” was an attempt to bring “Chicken Little” to mind.

And I will close with this…

The Black Grievance Industry’s  “Hands Up; Dont Shoot” and “I Can’t Breath” are perfect examples of using  language to control the debate.  What are those who believe that due process were afforded to respond with?  These tags as short, crisp, and make their point in a manner that requires no thinking, no further information, leaving the true believer with only a clear course of action, blame the cops that the white man uses to suppress the black man.

I do not think that “Law and Order” or “The Cops Are Our Protectors” will sway the debate at this juncture, but the point of this essay is that you should not be swayed by tags nor slogans, but look into the merits of issues before you pick sides.

Eric Garner Was Killed By Tax Collectors Enforcing A Do Gooder Tax Of Mayor Bill de Blasio

It was tax collectors that killed Eric Garner, for that is what the cops were arresting him for, selling untaxed cigarettes.  See the New York City and State tax on a pack is $5.95 in all. So with the federal excise tax of a dollar, a pack costs at least $14.  On the other hand a ‘Loosies’, a single cigarette from a pack bought outside of the state and smuggled in  sells for 75 Cents, 2 for $1, bringing in $10-15 to the sellers per pack,  if sold as ‘loosies’ on the streets in New York City they will yield a 230% profit to the pack.  If the seller give the smuggler 50%  of the profit, or $9 per pack, he still has a 180% markup for standing around barking his ware. The advantage to the buyer is that they do not have to spring for a whole pack everytime they want a smoke.  The risk to the seller is arrest and fines and or jail time.  The New York Times highlights one vendor who sells roughly 2,000 cigarettes a day, usually two at a time with a misdemeanor offense for each transaction, so for many it is worth the risk.  It was the high tax that created this crime of selling untaxed tobacco.

The law that Eric Garner violated:  N.Y. TAX. LAW § 1814-a : NY Code – Section 1814-A: Person not appointed as a tobacco products distributor.
Across the river in New Jersey a pack of cigarette can be bought in any store for $5-6 , Virginia is even cheaper and is where most of the smuggled cigarettes are bought.  This is pisses Virginia off because smugglers buy wholesale to avoid the retail sales tax.
There’s an easy fix for all of this: Cut New York’s cigarette taxes. (Virginia could hike its own tax, but then Virginia didn’t create this problem—New York did.) Yet cutting the cigarette tax would deprive New York of revenue, and we mustn’t have that, oh no. Besides, it would send the wrong signal. New York wishes to make people stop smoking, and punitive taxes are the way to do that without outright banning tobacco, which would be too obviously narrow-minded.
So apparently it falls to Virginia to find a solution to the problem New York created. The state’s crime commission is considering several, including requiring retailers who sell tobacco to buy a special license. Revenue from the licensing could then help fund anti-smuggling operations, which would be handled by the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control. Virginia sells hard spirits in state-owned stores; there’s more money for the government that way. 
In short, the answer to a problem caused by governmental heavy-handedness in New York is to increase the degree of governmental heavy-handedness here. Isn’t that always the way?
Before crossing that Rubicon, however, we first should revisit the implied calculus of the cross-state relationship. Under what one might call Giuliani Equilibrium, Virginia took both New York’s good (Broadway musicals) and its bad (dumpster drippings). Now we have a new variable: smuggling, and the criminality attendant thereupon. This adds a negative to the Virginia side of the equation. 
Before we add further negatives—more government, higher fees on retailers, etc.—we should first ask New York to correct this. Since it probably won’t do so by cutting cigarette taxes, perhaps it could increase its output of cultural amenities. Even better, it could make Virginia the first stop for all traveling exhibitions and shows.
Eric Garner was out on bail when he was killed for among other things selling loosies.  People who pushs for laws for whatever purpose should keep this in mind:
1)  Government is force.
2)  Government writes the laws.
3)  Government uses force to ensure compliance with all of its laws, including the bad ones.
4)  If you don’t agree to obey the laws, or fund them, you will be locked up, or killed if you resist.
If you do not want someone to die because of a lae do not support the people who would pass such a law.  Yale Professor: Every Law Has a Death Penalty Well, take the case of Michael Brown.
This war on smoking is Mayor Bill de Blasio do gooder law out in place for the people’s own good.  First by raising the tax so high that no one can afford to buy tobacco, and then enforcing laws against selling untaxed cigarettes.
New York Mayor Bill de Blasio has quietly suppressed the public release of a lawsuit to keep untaxed cigarettes out of the city after downplaying those involved in Eric Garner’s death, it is claimed. The groundbreaking suit was reportedly drafted by New York City’s Law Department the same week that a grand jury decided not to indict officer Daniel Pantaleo for his role in the death of Garner. It was apparently filed in Brooklyn federal court on December 9 in a bid to prevent out-of-state businesses from supplying cigarette traffickers, who can then avoid hefty state and city taxes.  Daily Mail and HERE for a copy of the lawsuit.
He has also announced that he would be banning smoking in public areas, including city streets, another potential death penalty for noncompliers? When you sick the cops upon people they WILL use the FORCE required to bring about compliances, they have no choice they cannot back down.  Do not blame the cops, blame the laws that they must enforce.  See HERE: “As of November 1st, the smoking ban will go into effect in New York. Initially, there will be a fine of $50 dollars for the first offense, and a $100 dollar fine for all offenses after that. All proceeds from the fines will go directly to rebuilding inner city parks and playgrounds.”
Since November, six stores have been shut down for allowing customers to roll their own cigs. “When one business doesn’t play by the rules it hurts not only the taxpayers, who rely on tax revenue to pay for vital services, but all of the small businesses who do the right thing,” said  said Finance Commissioner Frankel in the memo. “It is our job to help level the playing field for businesses and ensure all tax revenue due to the City is collected.”
It seems to me that the high taxes upon tobacco has conflicting goals, is it to make people quit smoking or to pat for “to pay for vital services and rebuilding inner city parks and playgrounds”?

Now to link this to Michael Brown, the black teenager, who did a strong-arm robbery of a convenience store, walked out with some Swisher Sweets, was stopped by a white cop, then  Michael Brown got shot dead!  That’s one of the Big 3 legitimate functions of the state.  (Protect the borders, provide a courts system, and protect property rights.)  Even if the property in question is a $40.00 box of cheap cigars.

When you call out the dogs do not be surprised if they bite someone.  The cop is sworn to enforce the law regardless of the nature of the crime or how much force it take to enforce compliance with a lawful order.
