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

"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
"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.”

+Warships in position as Korean tensions mount ~ link ~ The 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.
+North Korea can trigger the feared 21st Century US-China War ~ link ~ The 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 might recklessly instigate another US-China war, similar to what happened during the 1950s Korean War.

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.
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.

Tax the Rich: A Deficit Plan That Doesn't Hit We, The People ~ link ~ Here 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.)

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.
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 bailout protest draws 100,000 to Dublin streets ~ link ~
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.
