Biggest November snowfall in 17 years in UK and more to come ~ link ~ The cause is the Jet Stream, the same cause of the high heat and drought in Russia last summer and the high heat and flooding in Germany, and other parts of Europe and Pakistan as well. The Jet Stream, which is a current of high speed air, is effected by the North Atlantic Current (its effect on the atmosphere goes up to seven miles high), and the North Atlantic Current has been seriously degraded by the effects from the death and continuing absence of the Loop Current in the Gulf of Mexico. This is caused by the fact that well over 70% of the oil remains below the surface in the Gulf and the oil breaks down warm water currents in larger bodies of cooler water. Hence the BP Oil Disaster continues to be effecting the planet's weather patterns in a major way. Stirling

South Korea boosts defenses as North warns of more strikes ~ link ~ South Korea said Thursday it would send more troops and guns to frontline islands, as North Korea warned it could follow up this week's deadly shelling with more attacks. Pyongyang's fresh warning came as a US aircraft carrier headed for the tense peninsula to join war games to be staged as a show of force to the nuclear-armed communist state.
Is the US Indirectly Provoking China ~ link ~ On Tuesday 23 November 2010 the South Korean military launched an artillery barrage that saw its shells fall into disputed waters close to North Korea. South Korea does not deny it fired first by firing shells into the disputed waters but says the shelling was ‘away from the north’. The North Koreans had already warned the South Koreans that they would consider such an act as a direct provocation and respond accordingly.
With thousands of miles of coastline to the west, south and east that South Korea could have harmlessly fired its shells from, one needs to ask why South Korea chose to fire them knowingly toward and into disputed waters so close to North Korea. One also needs to ask why South Korea did this just days before a major joint military exercise with the US that includes the USS George Washington carrier strike group.
Israeli forces brutally batter 7-year-old Palestinian child ~ link ~ Israeli policemen severely battered a Jerusalemite child in Silwan, occupied Jerusalem, on Wednesday night breaking both his arm and leg, his father said.
Mansour Al-Resheq told the Quds media center in the Shaari Tzedek hospital that policemen chased his 7-year-old child Adam and savagely beat him then dragged him on the ground before leaving him in the street bleeding.
For his part, Fakhri Abu Diab, the head of the committee in defense of Silwan land, said that the child was suffering from several fractures and that the doctors were still checking his condition, noting that Adam was still screaming of pain, which pointed to more fractures other than those in the arm and leg.
He denounced the "savage act" on the part of the occupation forces, adding that he could not assimilate the idea of heavily armed soldiers chasing then beating a helpless child and dragging him on the ground.
*UK Metropolitan Police Commissioner predicts more 'disorder' on the streets - with video ~ link ~ The powers that be know the public is going to get 'out-of-hand' in the coming days/weeks/months and are preparing for it. The global banking cartel intends to destroy the Middle Class and much of the lower Upper Class in the coming months on their road to their New World Order. Stirling
It said: "In London the heavy handed brutality of the police force denied thousands the right to protest. Police saw fit to kettle students as young as 14 for hours on end in the cold. They were prevented from handing a letter to Nick Clegg. "A Downing Street rally - for which Scotland Yard's permission had been sought and received by the Education Activist Network - was arbitrarily banned at the last minute by the police, who charged the waiting crowd on horseback."
*Memo to Ireland: "Tell the EU and IMF to Shove It" ~ link ~ Amen to that! Stirling
"According to data compiled by the Bank of International Settlements, the three largest creditors to the Irish economy at the end of June...were Germany to the tune of €109bn, the UK at €100bn and France at €40bn. These sums amount to 2 per cent of France’s gross domestic product, 4.5 per cent of Germany’s GDP, and 7 per cent of British GDP."

First a Hand on Your Crotch, Next a Boot in Your Face ~ link ~ The reason that I and so very many people have been so opposed and upset by this recent TSA fascist policy is that we know history. If we do not stop this crap now, like Hitler and Lenin/Stalin did, those in power will expand and expand their police state control over the people and we will be in a total slave-state with high tech being used against us. We have to act now to avoid that coming nightmare. Stirling
Endgame Legislation: Lame Duck Session Ushers in Tyranny ~ link ~
It seems the members of government who have been recently voted out of office are vying for corporate jobs by pushing such legislation as the Food Safety Modernization Act and the Combating Online Infringement and Counterfeits Act which are now on the fast track to becoming law. Both of these laws reek of tyranny for the citizens and a means of corporate consolidation for the big boys.
