Ancient Scottish Barony Title for sale.  There are about 100 Scottish feudal baronies  that still exist; only a handful are from the very ancient Baronage of the Isles, as this one is.  In a time of economic crisis, it pays to put some of your wealth into important artwork, properties, etc. of rare value.  This is one of the most rare things that can be purchased and held. For sale at US$150,000 ~ link

Preliminary War Warning for the Koreas, Japan, Russian Far East, South China:  Persons in these areas should be prepared to move to nuclear/biological/chemical defense shelters at any time.  Conditions are indicative of a pre-war/near-war environment.  Large American/South Korean naval forces are engaged in 'war games' just offshore of North Korea and near China.  The Philippines are moving to get their workers out of South Korea.  The North Koreans have recalled tens of thousands of their workers from Russia to North Korea with little publicity.  This latter event is most troubling.  If you are traveling in/to this part of the world, you should delay you trip until things settle down, if in fact that happens.  Pray for peace.  Stirling

BP Gulf Oil Disaster Caused Weather Changes^

^Chaos as heavy snow hits Scotland ~ link ~ I hate to tell you but the REAL CHAOS will come as the public wakes up to the fact that BP killed the Loop Current by using millions of gallons of dispersants on the truly massive amounts of oil from the BP Gulf Oil Disaster (with the full backing of the corrupt Obama Administration) and that this has had a profound effect on the North Atlantic Current and the atmospheric Jet Stream.  That the United Kingdom will no longer be protected by the warming waters of the current and will, along with large parts of Europe and Asia, begin to experience at the least a mini-Ice Age.  Further, North America and the entire World will see climatic changes.  Sometimes it is not so wonderful to be right, this certainly is one of those times.  Dr. Deagle  and Dr. Zangari and I warned of this possibility last summer.  Stirling 

^Siberian winds set to create further weather disruption ~ link ~

Siberian winds are set to cause further disruption during the UK's "big freeze" by blowing snow back into cleared areas, forecasters warn. Parts of eastern England and Scotland already under thick snow could see further showers. BBC meteorologist Philip Avery said it was likely the strong winds would cause significant drifting.

^Temperature drops to record -17C November low in Wales ~ link ~ That made Wales colder than Greenland, with the chill continuing next week, and more snow possible from Tuesday.

^Northern Ireland: Temperatures fall to record low ~ link  ~ Temperatures plummeted to the coldest on record for November in Northern Ireland. The lowest reading was at Lough Fea which dropped to -9.5C (14.9F). The next coldest temperature was -9C (15.8F) recorded in 1978 at Murlough.

The Roads Service warned of extremely hazardous driving conditions and advised drivers to exercise caution.

Pre-War Conditions on Korean Peninsula+ 

+Latest:  South Korean President Lee: "I can't contain my anger over the North Korean regime's cruelty that ignores even the lives of children" (televised Monday 29 Nov 2010) ~ link
 SEOUL, Nov. 29 (Yonhap) -- South Korean President Lee Myung-bak on Monday strongly condemned North Korea's recent shelling of a South Korean border island, saying an attack against civilians is an "inhumane" crime strictly prohibited even during a war.

   "I can't contain my anger over the North Korean regime's cruelty that ignores even the lives of children," Lee said in a televised speech.

+Shelling by North Korea was 'inhumane crime' says South Korean President Lee ~ link ~ Yep, things are heating up, at least in the rhetoric area.  Stirling

+North Korea deploys SA-3 surface-to-air missiles near Yellow Sea border ~ link ~ These are older SAMs, but no doubt updated ones.  There are still dangerous is used properly.

"(The missiles) appear to be targeting our fighter jets that fly near the Northern Limit Line (NLL)," the source said on customary condition of anonymity, referring to the Yellow Sea border. The Soviet-designed SA-2 missile has a range of between 13 and 30 kilometers. Other missiles on the North's west coast, such as the Samlet and Silkworm with ranges of up to 95km, have also been put onto launch pads, the source said.

   "The military is preparing for the possibility of further provocations as the North Korean military has deployed firepower near the NLL and is preparing to fire," the source said.

+South Korea: Dispatch from the frontline of World War Three ~ link ~ The use of Fuel-Air Explosive technology was not something that the other mainstream news media reported.  This is serious as it is the use of Advanced Conventional Weaponry.  If used carefully and in a proper grid pattern, FAEs are capable of delivering blast effects on a level of tactical nuclear weapons.  Stirling

A whole street of houses and shops in the village stands charred and ruined. Blackened bar-stools and twisted bicycles show the force of the blast, and even three days later the smell of burning remained. Dogs, some of them wounded, run or limp through the streets, abandoned by their owners in the panic to get away. The village is empty of all but journalists. On the boat back, I spoke to a policeman who collected the bodies of the two civilians killed. “One of them was just a totally burnt-out shell, a skeleton,” he said. “The other was scattered, blown apart.”

According to local media, the North Koreans used “hyperbaric,” or fuel-air, explosives – rare and unusually destructive weapons, only just this side of breaching international law. But then the attack itself, Pyongyang’s first, in its own words, “precisely aimed” land assault on South Korea's civilians since the end of the war in 1953, broke wholly new and dangerous ground.

+Warships in position as Korean tensions mount ~ linkThe USS George Washington, which carries 75 warplanes and has a crew of more than 6,000, will be accompanied by at least four other US warships, an official from US Forces Korea said.

South Korea has deployed three destroyers, frigates and anti-submarine aircraft.

Tensions on the Korean peninsula are as severe as they have been at any time since the end of the Korean war in 1953, and a senior official in Beijing today suggested emergency talks between the six countries that had taken part in talks on Pyongyang's disarmament.

Time not right for six-way meeting in Beijing, says Seoul, amid military muscle flexing by North and South Korea

+North Korea can trigger the feared 21st Century US-China War ~ linkThe recent exchange of artillery fire in the Yellow Sea between the armed forces of North Korea and South Korea caused Asian stocks to tumble and heightened fears that North Korea might recklessly instigate another US-China war, similar to what happened during the 1950s Korean War.

It’s hard not to appreciate at this point the reality of a US-China conflict. Many aspects of it are now being openly discussed in international media. The consistent demonizing of China by the US is a giveaway of their preparations for a conflict.

Japanese Coast Guard spots two Chinese vessels near disputed islands in East China Sea ~ link ~ The Japanese coast guard has spotted two Chinese vessels attempting on Sunday to enter waters near islands in the East China Sea that are disputed by the two countries, Kyodo News reported. Two Chinese fishing patrol ships were sighted around 7:45 a.m. on Sunday (6:45 p.m. EST on Saturday) repeatedly trying to enter waters 44 kilometers off a group of islands known as Senkaku in Japan and Diaoyu in China, Kyodo reported, citing the Japanese coast guard.

Relations between Asia's two biggest economies soured in September after Japan detained a Chinese skipper whose fishing boat collided with Japanese patrol vessels off the disputed islands, which are near potentially rich maritime gas reserves. He was later released.

Prognosis 2012: Towards a New World Social Order ~ link ~

The business of the capitalist is the management of capital, and this management is generally handled through the mediation of banks and brokerage houses. It should not be surprising that investment bankers came to occupy the top of the hierarchy of capitalist wealth and power. And in fact, there are a handful of banking families, including the Rothschilds and the Rockefellers, who have come to dominate economic and political affairs in the Western world.

Unlike aristocrats, capitalists are not tied to a place, or to the maintenance of a place. Capital is disloyal and mobile – it flows to where the most growth can be found, as it flowed from Holland to Britain, then from Britain to the USA, and most recently from everywhere to China. Just as a copper mine might be exploited and then abandoned, so under capitalism a whole nation can be exploited and then abandoned, as we see in the rusting industrial areas of America and Britain. 

This detachment from place leads to a different kind of geopolitics under capitalism, as compared to aristocracy. A king goes to war when he sees an advantage to his nation in doing so. Historians can 'explain' the wars of pre-capitalist days, in terms of the aggrandizement of monarchs and nations. 

A capitalist stirs up a war in order to make profits, and in fact our elite banking families have financed both sides of most military conflicts since at least World War 1. Hence historians have a hard time 'explaining' World War 1 in terms of national motivations and objectives. 

In pre-capitalist days warfare was like chess, each side trying to win. Under capitalism warfare is more like a casino, where the players battle it out as long as they can get credit for more chips, and the real winner always turns out to be the house – the bankers who finance the war and decide who will be the last man standing. Not only are wars the most profitable of all capitalist ventures, but by choosing the winners, and managing the reconstruction, the elite banking families are able, over time, to tune the geopolitical configuration to suit their own interests. 

Nations and populations are but pawns in their games. Millions die in wars, infrastructures are destroyed, and while the world mourns, the bankers are counting their winnings and making plans for their postwar reconstruction investments. 

From their position of power, as the financiers of governments, the banking elite have over time perfected their methods of control. Staying always behind the scenes, they pull the strings controlling the media, the political parties, the intelligence agencies, the stock markets, and the offices of government. And perhaps their greatest lever of power is their control over currencies. By means of their central-bank scam, they engineer boom and bust cycles, and they print money from nothing and then loan it at interest to governments. The power of the banking elites is both absolute and subtle...

      "Some of the biggest men in the United
States are afraid of something. They
know there is a power somewhere, so
organised, so subtle, so watchful, so
interlocked, so complete, so pervasive
that they had better not speak above
their breath when they speak in
condemnation of it."
      -- President Woodrow Wilson

The dangerous "Great Game": A global economic system erected on inhuman and predatory values ~ link ~ The control of the US by the wealthiest families of the planet is exercised in a powerful, profound and clandestine manner. The elite owns the media, banks, defense and oil industry. In his book, Who’s Who of the Elite, Robert Gaylon Ross Sr states: “It is my opinion that they own the US military, NATO, the Secret Service, the CIA, the Supreme Court, and many of the lower courts. They appear to control, either directly or indirectly, most of the state, county, and local law enforcement agencies.”

The elite may have tactical differences, but it is united on one thing - it is intent on conquering the world through the use of the abilities of the people of the United States. The elite owns numerous “think tanks” that work for expanding, consolidating and perpetuating their hold on the globe. These think tanks publish journals, such as Foreign Affairs, in which these imperialist and anti-mankind ideas are edified as publications, and then, if need be, expanded in the form of books that are given wide publicity. Brzezinski and Kissinger et al, as well as their opponents, the neocon “thinkers”, owe their positions and good living standards to the largesse of the elite, directly or indirectly. 

Time and again the US elite has taken the good people of America into great wars through documented and proven deceptions - sinking of Lusitania during World War I, Pearl Harbour in World War II, and so on. The elite consider us “human garbage” - a term first used by the French in Indo-China. It is also generating a good deal of “human garbage” in the US. A World Bank report points out that in 2005, 28 million Americans were “insecure” – in 2007, the number had risen to 46 million! One in every five Americans is faced with the possibility of becoming “destitute” - 38 million people receive food coupons!
A global economic system erected on inhuman and predatory values, where a few possess more wealth than the billions of hungry put together, will end, but the end will be painful and bloody. As Einstein said: “I do not know how the Third World War will be fought, but I can tell you what they will use in the Fourth - rocks!” There is some hope in this because what will the wealthy cabal do with its wealth if mankind, as we know it, ceases to be.

Tax the Rich: A Deficit Plan That Doesn't Hit We, The People ~ linkHere is MY deficit-reduction plan. This plan does not reflect the views of anyone but myself -- and maybe half the population. Unlike deficit plans from the "serious people" in DC, this one doesn't annihilate the poor and gut Social Security and the middle class while passing even more of the benefits of our society up to a few at the top.
1) Restore pre-Reagan top tax rates. We didn't have massive deficits until we reduced the top tax rates.

2) Income is income. No more reduced capital gains tax rate. The incentive to invest should be to make a bunch of money from a good investment. The reason there is a low capital gains tax rate is that the wealthy get most of their income from capi28%tal gains. And the reason they get most of their income from capital gains is there is a low capital gains rate. The resulting income shifting schemes are a drag on the rest of us. (Also applies to dividends.)

Colorado lawyer files for injunction against Department of Homeland Security and TSA - with video ~ link ~ Colorado lawyer, Gary Fielder, has filed for a Permanent Restraining Order in federal district court against Janet Napolitano, John Pistole, the Department of Homeland Security and the TSA. Attorney Fielder made headlines earlier this year when he refused to go through a naked body scanner installed at a Colorado courthouse. He has now filed a Complaint for Injunctive Relief to stop the naked body scanners and enhanced pat downs at our nation's airports.

In his complaint, he details his personal story of how he and his daughters were treated during an "enhanced pat down" by the TSA on a recent trip to San Diego, describing the TSA agents' behavior as "disgusting, unconscionable, sexual in nature, unnecessary and a complete violation of his and his children's constitutional rights."

TSA Nude Scaners - How Terahertz Waves Tear Apart DNA ~ link ~ Alexandrov and co have created a model to investigate how THz fields interact with double-stranded DNA and what they've found is remarkable. They say that although the forces generated are tiny, resonant effects allow THz waves to unzip double-stranded DNA, creating bubbles in the double strand that could significantly interfere with processes such as gene expression and DNA replication. That's a jaw dropping conclusion.

Obama Style Fascism ~ link 
The germs of fascism infest both parties, thriving among Republican and Democratic hosts, alike. Barack Obama’s 2008 victory was also a new lease on life for George Bush’s foreign wars and strangulation of domestic civil liberties, most recently in the assault on travelers bodies at airports. The first Black president rules very much like the last white president, and "the absence of outrage directed in the right direction makes us more endangered now than in the days when Bush occupied the White House."

Ireland's financial woes
One of the largest demonstrations in the Irish Republic's history brought more than 100,000 people on to Dublin's streets in protest over the international bailout and four years of austerity ahead.

Among those on the main march there was deep anger that most of the €80bn-plus from the EU and IMF will be used to shore up Ireland's ailing banks.
