Greenland Ice map error, Times Comprehensive Atlas of the World, 0.1 percent melt not 15 percent, Global Warming hoax
From The Blaze September 26, 2011.
“Overestimating Global Warming? Scientists Say New Map of Greenland Needs More Ice”
“Over the last couple weeks, climate scientists have been trying to get ice added back onto the map of Greenland in the latest version of the Times Comprehensive Atlas of the World. Glaciologists came out in force stating the publisher exaggerated the rate of glacial melt and that scientists were not consulted about the figures.
These glaciologists report that Greenland’s melt should be more like 0.1 percent as opposed to 15 percent from 1999 to 2011, which was stated in publisher’s news release. At first HarperCollins stood by the accuracy of its map. The Guardian reported the publisher as saying, “We are the best there is … Our data shows that it has reduced by 15 percent. That’s categorical.”
But only a day later, HarperCollins’ subsidiary Collins Geo issued an apology saying that the press release with the 15 percent reduction was wrong, although they did not acknowledge that the map itself was inaccurate.
The BBC (via the New York Times) later reported that the publisher was working with scientists to redo the map of Greenland. The Times has more:
[Sheena Barclay, the managing director of Collins Geo,] promised a new, “much more detailed map of Greenland that will represent more effectively the ice cover as it is.”
Asked if by “effectively” she meant “accurately,” Ms. Barclay replied, “It’s a case of actually how you define the ice itself, and at the scales at which we show Greenland it’s actually quite difficult to achieve that.”
The Times reported that climate scientists were especially miffed by this mistake after a similar over exaggeration of glacial melt in the Himalayan Mountains in a 2007 United Nation’s spurred global warming skepticism in 2010”
Iranian Pastor Yousef Nadarkhani faces execution, Christian Nadarkhani persecution, Urgent request
From American Family Association September 28, 2011.
“Pastor about to be executed by Iranian government
Iranian Pastor Yousef Nadarkhani faces execution anytime from Thursday onwards after refusing to renounce his faith.”
“Iranian Pastor Yousef Nadarkhani is currently on trial in Rasht, Iran. He has appeared in court three times this week and each time has refused to renounce his faith when asked to do so by the court. If he does not recant his Christian faith, he could be executed at any time (on or after Thursday, September 29).
The 11th branch of Iran’s Gilan Provincial Court has determined that Nadarkhani has Islamic ancestry and therefore must recant his faith in Jesus Christ.
When asked to “repent” by the judges, Yousef stated, “Repent means to return. What should I return to? To the blasphemy that I had before my faith in Christ?” The judges replied, “To the religion of your ancestors, Islam.” To which he replied, “I cannot.”
Send an email to the Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, asking her to request the Iranian government to stop any attempt to execute Pastor Nadarkhani and to offer asylum to Pastor Nadarkhani and his family.
Speaker of the House of Representatives John Boehner has also released a statement calling for Pastor Yousef’s release.
Send an email to the Secretary of State Hillary Clinton immediately!”
William Cellini trial overview, Tony Rezko not sentenced, Rezko unlikely witness, Patrick Fitzgerald collusion
“Why did the Illinois Senate Health & Human Services Committee, with Obama as chairman, create and push Bill 1332, “Illinois Health Facilities Planning Act,” early in 2003, which reduced the number of members on the Board from 15 to 9, just prior to rigging by Tony Rezko and Rod Blagojevich?”…Citizen Wells
“I believe I’m more pristine on Rezko than him.”…Rod Blagojevich
“Why were Stuart Levine and Tony Rezko not called as witnesses in the Blagojevich trials? FBI agent Daniel Cain testified in the Rezko trial. Why was agent Cain not questioned more in the Blagojevich trial?…Citizen Wells
As I have stated before, the first letters in Wells are WE. This has always been a group effort and will continue that way. Below are 2 comments from regulars here. I wish that the rest of the country was paying this much attention.

“It was made perfectly clear in the 2 trials of Rod Blagojevich that
the prosecution and the judge were more concerned with protecting
Obama than they were with a guilty verdict….first they never called
Rezko who’s testimony would have prevented a second trial and he would
have been found guilty on all charges…second, their refusal to turn
over the 302′s and thier lame excuse, “I read them and theres nothing
there”…third, the leaker??? was it someone inside the fbi or U.S.
Attorney’s office or was it John Wyma himself…fourth, Patrick
Fitzgerald’s lack of interest in “who” tipped off John Chase, “It
wasn’t me”, just doesn’t cut it….We can be certian who ever was the
leaker also tipped off Obama and his staff…fifth, Rezko never being
called to testify and him waiting for over 3 years to be sentenced.
sixth, the current law suit of Frawley vs. Weaver, it answers numerous
questions including payments made from Rezko to Obama…which we can all
be pretty sure that the feds knew about this for years…am I forgetting
From Pete on 2011/09/29 at 12:54 pm.
“I read a little background about our mutual prosecutor Fitzpatrick the other day. Seems he was famous before being involved in the Chicago crime, we call Obama’s past. Fitzgerald brought a guy in to testify for a grand jury, knowing the whole time that the person he was interviewing had nothing to do with the crime he was investigating. He did this to ‘entrap’ the witness. The witness was Scooter Libby, and he didn’t have ANYTHING to do with Valerie Plame or her public outing at the hands of a Colin Powel aid.
So, we know that Fitzgerald is a political hack for the DEMOCRATS and has no interest in unbiased justice. He is directly INVOLVED in cover-up for Obama and his associations with Blago, Levine, the hospital board, the sale of the illegal senate seat, his illegal housing gift from Rezco, and some 600 million dollars of Iraq reconstruction aid that went mysteriously missing.
I believe it’s all corrupt, to the very core, and the American people are starting to smell and feel the stench of our dear democratic party people. Just remember to remind EVERYONE you see that while politicians may be ‘dirty’ this sort of all out criminal administration has NO PEER in the last 150 years, and is starting to resemble Ulysses Grant for illegal behavior and pay to play.”
Here is a decent overview of the William Cellini trial.
I stated in 2008 before the election that Obama had to win to avoid prosecution. Since taking the White House he has controlled Eric Holder and the US Justice Department. Obama may lose control of Holder for a number of reasons.
Many rumors are circulating about Obama not running in 2012 or having competition in the primaries. I posed the question months ago of who would throw Obama under the bus. At this point I give it a 50 50 chance of his running in 2012. He still has some of the same problems of actually being investigated for a number of indiscretions. So Obama will have to work out a deal with someone(s). Watch closely. This may happen.
“Was Bernard Barton, Jr. relocated to Chicago on a mission to help
bring down Tony Rezko and, thereby, shield a young, articulate,
African-American politician from his potentially incriminating
associations with Rezko? Too conspiratorial, you say? Maybe. Maybe
Let’s review the highlights of the Silent Mole, starting with an
admission from the Complicit Newspaper.
The Chicago Tribune identified Thomas as a Mole in this May 4, 2007,
article written by David Jackson.
John Thomas bought and sold downtown office buildings and helped other
property developers secure multimillion-dollar mortgage loans.
But the high-living dealmaker had a double life.
Thomas, who was convicted of federal business fraud in New York in
2004, has been serving as an undercover government mole in Chicago for
at least a year as part of an ongoing federal investigation into fraud
in the financing of large-scale commercial real estate deals, the
Tribune has learned.
Records made public so far do not identify the targets of the federal
probe and the FBI and US Attorney’s Office declined to comment for
That same May, a concerned citizen spoke on the phone with a
well-known Chicago Tribune reporter. The concerned citizen was trying
to chase down information as to when the Tribune learned that John
Thomas was an FBI mole while working in Rezko’s office. “Thomas” was
Barton’s new name in Chicago after being relocated from New York,
where he faced prosecution and eventual sentencing for fraud. (The
complete story of Burton-Thomas is well documented and won’t be
The concerned citizen asked the reporter why the Trib had sat on the
Mole’s story since, at least, 2006. That timeframe was implicitly
provided by the Trib reporter when stating that Patrick Fitzgerald
warned the paper, a year earlier in May 2006, that outing the Mole
would cause problems for the investigation and could prove dangerous
Then, in a moment of indiscretion, the reporter added that Fitzgerald
told the Trib in May 2006 that identifying the mole could also
“influence the election.””
“Back when the Mole was entangled with the Eastern District of New
York, Patrick Fitzgerald was an Assistant U.S. Attorney in the
adjacent Southern District. The two would later rendezvous in
So, in February 2002, shortly after Burton-Thomas was relocated to
Chicago from the Big Apple, his nefarious past was outed by a Trib
reporter, but lacked any hint of his cooperation with the feds, nor
reference to his real name.”
“Now, jump ahead to February 2008. Sun-Times staff reporter David
Roeder elaborated on the Mole’s activity:
But sources said that, for more than two years when he was giving
information to agents, Thomas provided a fly-on-the-wall look inside
Rezko’s real estate operations and his desperate attempts to keep his
Sources said Thomas also logged frequent visits to Rezko from Gov.
Blagojevich and U.S. Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.).Blagojevich and Obama
were among the many politicians for whom Rezko raised campaign cash.
Neither has been charged with any wrongdoing.
Thomas had good reason to help. He hopes to get probation for his own
felony fraud conviction in a New York case. And he said he wants to
redeem himself in the eyes of business associates and his family.
Sources said Thomas helped investigators build a record of repeat
visits to the old offices of Rezko and former business partner Daniel
Mahru’s Rezmar Corp., at 853 N. Elston, by Blagojevich and Obama
during 2004 and 2005…
Sources said the government had him wear a hidden wire to record
conversations with a Chicago alderman — but that he did not record
Blagojevich or Obama.
Why no recording of Blago and Obama? Maybe because Blago had
notoriously loose lips and might say something that implicated the
Protected One, Obama.
One month later, in March 2008, presidential candidate Barack Obama
was subjected to an underhand, slow-pitch softball interview by the
editorial board of the Sun Times. The transcript of the interview (no
longer available on line) includes this exchange:
Q: In November 2006, you and your campaign exchanged with us written
interrogatories. So a lot of the quotes I will give you just come out
of those. The campaign said that you probably had lunch with Rezko
once or twice a year. You sort of added four or five times, something
John Thomas is an FBI mole. He recently told us that he saw you coming
and going from Rezko’s office a lot. And three other sources told us
that you and Rezko spoke on the phone daily. Is that true?
A: (Obama) No. That’s not accurate…
John Thomas aka Bernard Barton
Okay, maybe the Mole misremembered. A bad memory might explain why he
was never called by the USAO as a witness in the Rezko trial. Or,
perhaps, there was another reason.
On June 21, U.S. District Judge Elaine Bucklo sentenced John Thomas to
three years probation. His court records are sealed. His mission
accomplished. And the extent of his subsequent success in Chicago
commercial real estate is displayed on his face today.”
Chicago and Illinois delays in sentencing, Rezko Blagojevich Ryan, Will Tony Rezko testify?
“Something is rotten in the state of Denmark.”…William Shakespeare, “Hamlet”
From the Chicago Tribune September 27, 2011.
“Delays in determining prison terms for some high-profile Illinois criminals”
“With former Gov. Rod Blagojevich’s sentencing postponed indefinitely, here’s a look at how long it took to sentence other high-profile public corruption figures after their convictions by federal juries. It’s been 92 days since Blagojevich was found guilty June 27.”
“George Ryan: 142 days. The former governor was found guilty in 2006 of more than a dozen felony charges, including racketeering, tax and mail fraud and lying to the FBI. He is in prison.
Antoin “Tony” Rezko: 3+ years: A top fundraiser for Blagojevich, Rezko was convicted in 2008 of extorting millions of dollars from firms seeking state business. His sentencing was indefinitely postponed earlier this year.”
John Bryson, Obama Commerce secretary nominee, BrightSource Energy $1.37 billion federal loan guarantee, Stimulus money for jobs overseas
From World Net Daily September 26, 2011.
“Obama Commerce pick awarded $1.37 billion in ‘stimulus funds’ for another risky solar plant”
“President Obama’s nominee for Commerce secretary served as chairman of the board of a solar energy company that recently received a $1.37 billion federal loan guarantee – the largest the Department of Energy has ever given for a solar power project.
Now that company, BrightSource Energy, is attempting to build the world’s largest solar power plant amid concerns such ventures may be too risky an investment for the federal government.
In June, BrightSource Chairman John Bryson was nominated by Obama to head the Commerce Department.
WND reported in June that Bryson co-founded an environmental activist group that is a member and funder of the controversial Apollo Alliance.
Read what we’ll need to accomplish to restore America to greatness.
Apollo is run by a slew of socialists and radicals, including Jeff Jones, a founder of the Weather Underground domestic terrorist organization. Jones himself boasts of doing work for the environmental group founded by Bryson, the Natural Resources Defense Council.
Bryson served until June as co-chairman of the Pacific Council on International Policy, a globalist organization whose members can be found throughout the Obama administration.
The massive loan guarantee to BrightSource is meant to build an expensive California desert solar plant known as the Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System.
The system will feature mirrors that reflect sun toward a massive central tower that is in turn heated to produce steam meant to spin turbines to produce electricity.
The size of the BrightSource plant is thought to produce enough power to meet the needs of hundreds of thousands of Californians.
During a national address last October, Obama mentioned the possible benefits of BrightSource Energy’s “revolutionary new type of solar power plant.”
However, some have doubted that the massive solar plant will actually work.
The Bay Citizen quoted Michael Boyd, president of the nonprofit Californians for Renewable Energy, as saying there is “no evidence” BrightSource’s project will succeed.
Boyd complained most of the equipment used at the plant would be manufactured in China and Germany.
“Stimulus money isn’t going to jobs here in the U.S. It’s going to jobs overseas,” he said.”
“In 1970, Bryson co-founded the Natural Resources Defense Council, or NRDC, with a $400,000 seed grant from the Ford Foundation.
The group is also funded by the Tides Foundation, to which philanthropist George Soros has donated more than $7 million over the years. Tides itself is a major funder of leftist causes, including ACORN, whose founder and former chief organizer, Wade Rathke, is a Tides board member.
The NRDC is a major proponent of fighting so-called global warming. It recently endorsed a document called the Earth Charter, which, Discover the Networks notes, blames capitalism for many of the world’s environmental, social and economic problems.
The charter maintains that “the dominant patterns of production and consumption are causing environmental devastation, the depletion of resources, and a massive extinction of species. The benefits of development are not shared equitably and the gap between rich and poor is widening.”
The NRDC is a member of the Apollo Alliance. NRDC’s president, Frances Beinecke, is on Apollo’s board. The NRDC is also listed by Apollo as a funder of the group, having donated between $1,200 to $2,999 to become an Apollo “clean energy benefactor.”
The NRDC endorses many Apollo initiatives.
Apollo’s New York office is run by Jeff Jones, who founded the Weather Underground with terrorists Bill Ayers and radical Mark Rudd when the three signed an infamous statement calling for a revolution against the American government inside and outside the country to fight and defeat what the group called U.S. imperialism.
Jones currently boasts on his personal website that he has done consulting work for the NRDC.
Apollo has been credited by the Obama administration with helping craft portions of the $787-billion “stimulus” bill signed into law.
The Apollo Alliance has boasted in promotional material that it was behind several of the Obama administration’s “green” initiatives, in addition to crafting “green” sections of the stimulus bill.
Among Apollo’s board members are a group of extremists including:
•Van Jones, President Obama’s controversial former “green jobs czar” who resigned in September 2009 after it was exposed he founded a communist revolutionary organization and signed a statement that accused the Bush administration of possible involvement in the 9/11 attacks. Jones also called for “resistance” against the U.S.
Jones himself described the Apollo Alliance’s mission as “sort of a grand unified field theory for progressive left causes.”
•Joel Rogers, a founder of the socialist New Party. WND reported evidence indicating Obama was a New Party member. In an interview with WND, New Party co-founder and Marxist activist Carl Davidson previously recounted Obama’s participation with the New Party.
Following publicity of Apollo’s radicalism, including scores of articles by WND and investigations by the Fox News Channel, Apollo announced it will merge with the BlueGreen Alliance, a collaboration of large environmental groups and unions.”
Blagojevich sentencing delayed, Judge James Zagel, William Cellini trial, Postponed until a further order of the court
From the Chicago Tribune September 26, 2011.
“Federal judge delays Blagojevich sentencing”
“Former Gov. Rod Blagojevich’s sentencing next month on his sweeping corruption charges has been postponed, according to a court order Monday.
No new date has been set.
The Oct. 6 date has always been tentative, and the postponement is not surprising largely because Blagojevich’s co-defendant, William Cellini, is scheduled to go on trial next Monday in the same courtroom.
U.S. District Judge James Zagel, who will preside over both Blagojevich’s sentencing and Cellini’s trial, said in a written order on Monday that the former governor’s sentencing has been postponed “until a further order of the court.””
October 3, 2011, William Cellini trial, Tony Rezko status hearing, Blagojevich sentencing, Will Rezko testify?
The William Cellini trial begins October 3, 2011. There is also a Tony Rezko status hearing scheduled for October 3, 2011. Apparently the Blagojevich sentencing hearing will begin soon as well. Will Tony Rezko be a witness in the Cellini trial? Historical trends say no.
Obama E-verify letter, Obama Selective Service Social Security number failed verify, Linda Jordan letter, Immigration Reform and Control Act
We recently were informed that Obama’s social security number that was supplied on his Selective Service Application failed a E-Verify verification. Linda Jordan has sent a letter to Obama requesting his correct social security number.
“Currently, the Immigration Reform and Control Act (1986) require employers, by law, to establish that their employees are eligible to work in the United States.”
“As one of your employers I used due diligence attempting to find a copy of your I-9 on the White House Website and other public records websites and could not. I am including an I-9 Form for you to fill out so I can keep it on file as required by law.
On the White House website I did find your name, date of birth and your address. I found the SSN you are using on a copy of your Selective Service Registration. I have heard you say many times that you are a citizen of the United States.
I registered with the government run E-Verify System and on August 17th, 2011, I entered your name, birthdate, address, SSN and citizen status in to E-Verify. The data was correctly entered. I was allowed to run a check on your eligibility to work in the United States.
I received back a “Notice of Mismatch with Social Security Administration Records: SSA record does not verify, other reason.””
