EDF and the eco terrorists: what
a shame they can’t both lose

Telegraph [UK], by James Delingpole

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 2/24/2013 6:10:55 AM

I´ve just had an email from something called Change.org--another of those online lefty pressure groups. This one is a plea from the parents of one of the environmental activists now being sued by the French energy company EDF for £5 million.[Snip] Claire and her friends act on principle and are entirely altruistic in what they do. Their chosen career paths have led them, not in the direction of making as much money for themselves as they can, but rather to promote ethical and radical solutions to some of the most important issues which face the planet

Comments:
Ah--James has had a much-needed load of grist delivered to his mill. Just the thing to get your juices flowing this foggy morning (if you´re on the SE coast). Go, JimmyD!

This faux climate change fearmongering must be much worse in the UK than here. I watched a current British "comedy" series and every story line was filled with shots of those bird/bat eating windmills, themes about recycling to save the planet, and electric cars with no charging stations in sight, etc. Not to mention the constant dialog about weather caused by "Climate Change". It was nonstop propaganda. Destroyed any humor the program may have offered. Very concerning to see how far the Greenie control freaks will go to shape the mythology of "Climate Change".

The discount chain that could become
Wal-Mart´s worst nightmare by
offering even cheaper prices
Daily Mail [UK], by Staff    Original Article

A small Idaho grocery chain has been dubbed ´Wal-Mart´s worst nightmare´ after recording huge profits at its 100 stores. The no frills Western-based chain WinCo offers cheaper prices as well as better employee conditions than its giant rival, according to experts who claim that the small chain could one day be national competitor. [Snip] It keeps its costs low by eliminating the middleman and buying direct from suppliers often sending their own trucks to collect produce which means they get a better price. Customers are also expected to bag their own groceries and credit cards are not accepted, bringing prices

When a house is not a home:
The fake townhouses in New

just a front for hidden portals

It´s in an excellent location, within reach of local schools, has very low maintenance costs and the transport links are to die for. But nevertheless, even the most cunning of estate agents would have trouble selling this Greek Revival brownstone townhouse... because it´s not a house at all. In fact, it´s just a front--literally. Behind the rustic red-brick facade of 58 Joralemon Street, in the heart of Brooklyn, lies a gaping void of nothing whatsoever. It is actually a secret subway exit and ventilation point disguised as a terraced family home which towers above the New York City subway tracks

Iraq marshes: A return to

They are thought to be the site of the Garden of Eden, but Saddam Hussein turned them into hell on earth. Yet now, largely through one man’s vision and sacrifice, the Mesopotamian marshes have been sufficiently restored for much of them to have been designated as Iraq’s first national park. Fed by the great Tigris and Euphrates rivers, the marshes were once the largest and richest in wildlife in the Middle East, and--at some 7,700 square miles--the third most extensive in the world. More than five millennia ago, much of the modern human story began around their shores

U.S. Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., will deliver the Republican Weekly Address tomorrow, and he will talk about how the nation’s energy policy and jobs picture are tied together. For the freshman Senator, the address will be his highest profile speech to date, with the possible exception of his speech in Tampa at last year’s Republican presidential convention. The address is typically run by ABC, CBS, and other national radio networks. Scott took office in January, filling the vacancy created by Sen. Jim DeMint’s resignation.

The Clintons have decided to rent a different house in the Hamptons this summer after they only received a small portion of their security deposit back from the home they rented last year.

An Arizona jail officer has been gunned down in front of his own home on his way to work, leading to a furious search for the man who killed him Thursday. Hours after the murder of Jorge Vargas, a 27-year-old married father of a little boy, his boss, Maricopa County Sheriff´s Joe Arpaio announced that he is issuing every deputy in his department an AR-15 assault rifle and commanding them to carry loaded guns at all times--even when off duty. Phoenix police Sgt. Trent Crump said Vargas succumbed to his injuries Thursday about an hour after the 4am shooting.

If beleaguered Anthony Weiner fails in his bid to win New York´s upcoming mayoral election, it turns out he at least has a fallback option... as a British television presenter. But when that day finally comes, whatever you do, just don´t ask him to do the weather. In his latest cringe-worthy performance in front of the cameras, the former Congressman attempted to deflect a tough question from an English reporter in New York yesterday by answering in a bizarre fake-British accent. And if witnesses thought it couldn´t get any worse, he then tried to melt the joke´s frosty reception by

Two arrested in Saudi Arabia over
terror plot that forced embassy

drone attacks, killing 12 Al Qaeda*

Two men have been arrested in Saudi Arabia on suspicion of planning terrorist attacks which forced the closure of several foreign embassies in the region in recent weeks. The arrests come as the U.S. sharply escalated its drone attacks on neighbouring Yemen on Thursday with 12 militants killed in three separate strikes. Saudi officials claim the two men arrested, from Yemen and Chad, were planning suicide attacks connected to recent al Qaeda threats on American and British embassies which forced their closures this week. The pair were detained in late July after they exchanged information on social media about imminent

At least nine people were killed when gunmen opened fire outside a mosque in the second attack in Quetta in south-west Pakistan in as many days. About 20 others were wounded in the attack, which came as worshippers left the Sunni Muslim mosque after sunrise prayers for the Eid al-Fitr festival. Bullets hit the car of Ali Madad Jatak, a former Pakistan People´s Party provincial minister, but he was unhurt. On Thursday dozens of people died in a suicide bomb blast in Quetta. In the latest attack, four unidentified men opened fire on the former minister as prayers came to

Spain is acting like a schoolyard

The 30,000 inhabitants of Gibraltar are bravely standing up to a futile campaign of intimidation by Spain. As The Telegraph reported earlier this week, the Spanish government is threatening “to impose a new border tax, close its airspace to planes using the British overseas territory’s airport, and investigate the affairs of Gibraltarians with Spanish economic interests,” all in an effort to harass the people of Gibraltar, the vast majority of whom are British citizens. This follows no less than 200 unlawful incursions by Spanish state vessels in British Gibraltar Territorial Waters last year. Madrid is acting like a schoolyard bully

First responders who arrived at massive airport fire in Kenya looted electronics, a bank and an ATM, it has been claimed. Officials investigating the fire at Nairobi´s Jomo Kenyatta International Airport told the Associated Press valuables were stolen by emergency services including police, firefighters and the army. The fire broke out on the 15th anniversary of U.S. Embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania that killed 224 people in total, mostly Kenyans, but also a dozen Americans. Today, international flights resumed landing and taking off from the fire-damaged airport and officials said they expected to return to full operations by

A huge new defence deal involving the purchase of Typhoon fighters could see the Army and RAF take on a permanent role. It was not so long ago that the mere thought of Bahrain’s head of state making a private visit to Downing Street would have provoked a political storm.

The owner of a shop in Zurich where US talk show host Oprah Winfrey says she encountered racism has called the incident a "misunderstanding". Winfrey, one of the world´s richest women, claimed an assistant refused to serve her in an upmarket handbag shop. She was apparently told one of the bags on display was "too expensive" for her. Shop owner Trudie Gotz told the BBC that Winfrey was "absolutely allowed" to look at the $35,000 (£22,500) bag, which was kept behind a screen.

Last month we learned that Megyn Kelly was leaving her daytime anchor gig to take over a Fox News primetime slot. According to an “exclusive” Drudge Report flash this afternoon, that time slot will be 9 p.m. ET. “Superstar newswoman Megyn Kelly has landed the 9 PM slot, top sources reveal,” the Drudge Report wrote. “The shock announcement is set for later this month.” Fox’s 9 p.m. hour is currently helmed by Sean Hannity, leading to speculation over whether he could be out of a primetime gig. There are many possible outcomes from this lineup change,

Nanny State: If any question remained about the Obama White House´s appetite for running everyone´s life from Washington, it should be settled now. This administration even wants to dictate neighborhood makeup. Like your neighborhood? Don´t get used to it. The Obama Department of Housing and Urban Development might decide it wants to dictate changes. HUD is, according to Fox News, considering "a new rule that would allow the feds to track diversity in America´s neighborhoods and then push policies to change those it deems discriminatory."

“IQ is a metric of such dubiousness that almost no serious educational researcher uses it anymore,” the Guardian’s Ana Marie Cox wrote back in May. It was a breathtakingly ignorant statement. Psychologist Jelte Wicherts noted in response that a search for “IQ test” in Google’s academic database yielded more than 10,000 hits — just for the year 2013. (Snip) There is a large discrepancy between what educated laypeople believe about cognitive science and what experts actually know. Journalists are steeped in the lay wisdom, so they are repeatedly surprised when someone forthrightly discusses the real science of mental ability.

That O´Donnell interrupted and harangued and mansplained and was generally an angry grandpa at me is not what I take issue with, however.

I think he is committed to his principles, which is rare in politics.” Cruz also pointed out that Obama’s principles were “profoundly dangerous.” “I respect that he believes, I think genuinely, with all of his heart, that government control of economy and redistribution of wealth betters the world,” Cruz added.

Justice: The wife of a Fort Hood survivor claims the Defense Department is "slapping victims with gag orders" and telling family members not to talk to the press following testimony in the trial of Nidal Hasan. One of the great scandals of the Obama administration has been its shameful designation of the Nov. 5, 2009, rampage at the Army base in Killeen, Texas, by Maj. Nidal Hasan as "workplace violence." It has only compounded the pain and suffering of the victims and their families who have now apparently been ordered to shut up about it.

Gutiérrez said many of the Republicans supportive of immigration reform don’t want to be identified, but he insisted they would support comprehensive immigration reform. “If they ask me today, go find those 40 to 50 Republicans, I’ll tell them I found them. I know where they’re at,” Gutiérrez said in an interview with Ed O’Keefe at The Washington Post.
