Climategate: FOIA – The Man
Who Saved The World

Telegraph [UK], by James Delingpole

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 3/14/2013 4:00:49 PM

FOIA--the anonymous leaker who brought the Climategate and Climategate II emails to light has emerged briefly from the shadows. He has released to selected parties (not me) the password to the cache of Climategate II emails in the hope that someone will have the time and energy to sift through them in search of exciting new revelations about the ongoing "Climate Change" scam. No doubt we´ll hear much more in the coming weeks. In the meantime, I think it´s worth dwelling on some of the clues he offers as to his identity and motivation. (I´m assuming it is a "he",

Delingpole proclaims at the head of his column that "he is always right". Well,..... pretty much!

Unless this kind of information keeps coming out in a steady drip, drip, drip - regular poeple will forget about the warming scam - especially when Obama brings it up again, as he did recently. Just one more way to get his hands on our hard earned money.

It doesn´t matter if this information - - no matter how blockbuster WE consider it to be - - keeps coming out because Lo-Fo voters are called Lo-Fo because they don´t care about the Fo.

Glo-bull Warming loonies can never be convinced otherwise - - because it would shatter their entire belief systems - - such as they are - - and destroy their entire reason to exist - - meagre as it is.

Lo-Fo is what Lo-Fo is - - and there´s nothing we can do about it.

But love you anyway, James!

Maybe I´m easily impressed, but the words of FOIA as quoted by Delingpole reveal an incredibly bright person.

The White House has been put on lockdwon after an unidentified man was caught trying to jump the fence Friday afternoon. Secret Service officers apprehended the suspect and he is now in custody. The man was said to be carrying two large bags but the agency has not released any further information about the incident. They stressed to NBC News that they are not especially worried about the bags now that the man is in custody but they are following standard protocol. That included a call to Washington´s Metro Police Department´s Explosive Ordinance Division and they are said to be investigating the bags

Hand over the gold: Olympic medal

The White House doesn´t like it, and neither does a prominent Senate Republican, but Olympic athletes who win medals in Sochi will have to pay federal income taxes on their cash bonuses. The U.S. Olympic Committee awards $25,000 for each gold medal, $15,000 for silver and $10,000 for bronze. But top athletes who are in the top income tax bracket , 39.6 per cent, will have to fork over as much as $9,900 of a gold medal payout.

Canada proposes citizenship changes

The Canadian government has proposed sweeping changes to its rules on citizenship. Under the plans, Canada would be able to revoke citizenship from dual nationals who have been convicted of terrorism, spying or high treason. Applicants would also have to pass a knowledge test and have proficiency in English or French. Immigration Minister Chris Alexander said citizenship should not be simply a "passport of convenience". [Snip] Other proposals for new applicants include having to wait six years to apply for Canadian citizenship instead of the current four.

Earliest human footprints outside Africa

The earliest footprints left by humans outside Africa have been found in estuary mud in Norfolk. Described as the most important discovery on British shores, the 800,000-year-old footprints were found in Happisburgh after being exposed by sea tides. Scientists believe the footprints are evidence of the earliest known humans in northern Europe, previously only revealed through the discovery of animal bones and stone tools. The footprint surface was exposed at low tide as heavy seas removed the beach sands to reveal a series of elongated hollows cut into compacted silts. Of the 50 footprints found, only around twelve were reasonably

Cash-strapped counties in six states are enrolling inmates in Obamacare health insurance plans as a way to shift costs to the federal government--a tactic that´s legal but frustrating for some Republicans who don´t want to see the success levels of President Obama´s signature law inflated artificially. In many cases jails are registering inmates so they´ll be better equipped to access addiction counseling and psychiatric care after their release, lowering the likelihood that they´ll return for more time behind bars. The Affordable Care Act prohibits the enrollment of full-time prisoners serving sentences, but many prisoners awaiting trial in prison jumpsuits are

Ukraine crisis: Putin adviser
accuses US of meddling

A senior adviser to Russian President Vladimir Putin has accused the US of meddling in Ukraine, in breach of a 1994 agreement over non-intervention. Sergei Glazyev said the US was spending $20m (£12.3m; 14.8m euros) a week on Ukrainian opposition groups, supplying "rebels" with arms among other things. (Snip) Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych is due to meet Mr Putin on Friday in Sochi, on the opening day of the Winter Olympic Games there. He held talks in Kiev with US Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland on Thursday, at which he said he favoured dialogue and compromise with the opposition.

Sochi terror threat shows the truly

When, during the early phase of Syria´s brutal civil war, Russian President Vladimir Putin warned the West against undertaking military intervention in Syria, his arguments were dismissed as nothing more than a blatant attempt to save the Assad regime, Moscow´s long-standing regional ally. But now that, on the eve of tomorrow´s opening ceremony at the Sochi Olympics, American intelligence agencies are warning that terror cells are planning to blow up airliners bound for the Olympics with explosives hidden in toothpaste, the Russian president´s warnings do not look so far-fetched after all.

Albert Edwards from Societe Generale has returned from two weeks holiday in a completely foul mood. "The ongoing emerging market debacle will be less contained than sub-prime ultimately proved to be. The simple fact is that US and global profits growth have reached tipping point and the unfolding EM crisis will push global profits and thereafter the global economy into deep recession."

Well, fancy that.

Growing numbers of GPs are joining a rebellion against an NHS scheme to harvest millions of medical records. Unless patients object, officials will start to extract confidential data from their files next month. The information will be used to improve care and assist research work, health chiefs say. But some family doctors fear the data will be misused by insurers and businesses. At least four GPs--with thousands of patients between them--are defying orders to hand over their patients’ records. Many more are known to share their concerns. [Snip] In an article in today’s Mail, he compares these ‘bullying’ tactics to those used

Washington - Americans overwhelmingly favor a bill that would give most undocumented immigrants a pathway towards citizenship, according to a new national poll. And a CNN/ORC International survey also indicates that a majority of the public says that the government´s main focus should be legalizing the status of the undocumented rather than border security. The poll was released Thursday, the same day that House Speaker John Boehner signaled any action on immigration is unlikely this year because House Republicans don't trust President Barack Obama on the issue. According to the poll, 54% say the top priority for the

House committees are still digging into the IRS political targeting scandal, and based on a hearing Wednesday there´s more to learn. The day produced more evidence blowing apart President Obama´s claims that there was "not even a smidgen of corruption" or political motivation in the IRS handling of groups applying for tax-exempt status. Mr. Obama wants Americans to believe that the targeting resulted from the confusing tax law governing nonprofits, which he says was "difficult" to interpret and resulted in mere "bureaucratic" mistakes. This is also the Administration´s justification for issuing new regulations governing

AUSTIN, Texas — The Wild West tradition of openly carrying your six-shooter on the street has long been banned in Texas under state law. But the next governor could change that. Rising Democratic star and gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis has joined her top Republican rival in supporting a proposed "open carry" law. It would allow people with concealed handgun licenses to wear a pistol on their hip, in full view, while in public. Davis has said she supports expanding gun rights in Texas. In a statement to The Associated Press, she said that includes open-carry — a position that puts her at

A private girls´ school in Northern California wanted to incorporate Black History Month into lunch time, so it decided to serve fried chicken, watermelon, and cornbread. As the Associated Press reports, school officials are apologizing because that was a really, really horrible idea. The school´s principal wrote a letter to parents, who were offended, and said the school doesn´t "perpetrate racial stereotypes." Unfortunately, that´s exactly what they did. In honor of Black History Month, we´d like to explain exactly why your fried chicken and watermelon lunch is ill-advised, with the hope that people will find better ways to honor this

The White House and congressional Democrats tried to limit the fallout Wednesday from the politically damaging conclusion in a Congressional Budget Office report that the Obamacare entitlement creates a major incentive for some people not to work. While some critics focused on a finding by the CBO that Obamacare will result in 2.5 million fewer workers over a decade, conservatives said the bigger fundamental issue highlighted in the report is one familiar to the welfare state — that taxpayer-funded government subsidies provide disincentives for full-time work. “People used to be stuck in jobs because they needed the health insurance,” said

There´s been a lot of blathering about who the front-runner for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination is, and so far I´ve resisted taking part. But I guess I´m kind of curious: Is there much of a case to be made for anyone other than Paul Ryan? On the substantive side, Ryan sure seems like he´s setting himself up for a run. There´s his steady series of "unheralded" anti-poverty outreach trips that always manage to be just heralded enough to get sympathetic press coverage. He brokered a budget deal with Patty Murray that was businesslike and low-drama but didn´t alienate the tea

Appearing on MSNBC, former Secretary of State Colin Powell savaged the Republican Party of which he says he is still a member for catering to “elements” that are overtly hostile to people of other races or nationalities. Powell told MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell that there are groups within the GOP who “demonize people who don’t look like the way they’d like them to look.” He added that, for this reason, he believes the GOP needs him more than the Democratic Party needs him. Speaking with Mitchell about the need for immigration reform, Powell said that reforming the system was critical. “We are

In the wake of Philip Seymour Hoffman’s untimely death, Cher’s son Elijah Blue Allman is among the celebs going public about their struggles with substance abuse. Allman, son of Cher and her second husband rock musician Greg Allman, spoke to Entertainment Tonight Tuesday about his former drug use, which began at a young age. "I started with drugs around the same time that we all did, around 11,” Allman said. “I mean it´s just what you did, it´s just what everybody did.” He added that he started off using marijuana and ecstasy, then later began abusing harder drugs like heroin.

This is either a glaring admission of defeat from the White House or… no, that’s really all it could be. After weeks of defending the cancellation of health plans insurers discontinued in 2013 in order to comply with the Affordable Care Act’s coverage mandates, the White House announced in November of last year that it was urging insurers to reinstate those plans. The catch was, of course, that most insurers would be unable to turn on a dime and reinstate those plans. Furthermore, the administration allowed individual states leeway to determine whether or not they would even allow insurers to reinstate
