Liberty Point: ‘How serious is the Libertarian Party about being taken seriously?’ | Independent Political ReportLabels: Libertarian Extremism
there is nothing to win in Afghan. war must have goals. our goal should be setting a punitive precedent to those that attack us and should never be about rebuilding our enemies. time to leave the Afghan and bomb Iran’s nuclear capability on the same day. we don’t need ground troops to do this. as for the Ron Paul’s of the world they have no creativity. their solutions are what led us into this mess to begin with. Paul forgets that the root of the problem began because of internationalist free trade that Ron is now pushing again. the West supported the Shah because he promised to pay back debts, but it is obvious that a free market in societies that are not ready is not the solution. Capitalism can not be internationalist and can only work within Republican frameworks. when I say Republican framework… I don’t mean the party, but rather I mean the idea of checks and balances within a border. Internationalist Anarcho-Capitalism aka Libertarianism is as bad as any other Internationalist theory without limit. it is nothing but the NWO in a new guise. It is no surprise that Ron Paul is appearing on Russian television all the time. the man obviously has bias and investment in those that would benefit from monopolizing resources like natural gas to Europe. It isn’t that Libertarianism is a theory it is rather that is is deliberate bias and orchestrated prejudice against what would be good for citizens of any Republic.
"I see science, including climate science, as very much a decentralized process, based on the collective efforts of thousands of researchers. The evidence for our current understanding of climate change also comes from a wide variety of disciplines, including chemistry, meteorology, oceanography, geography, tree ring studies, ice sheet studies, and a good body of theory, which has held up well. These results all point in broadly similar directions. Call me naive but, with apologies to Robert Sugden, I don't think many scientific results depend on what comes out of East Anglia, even if you include its emailing affiliates from Penn State and the like. Even very, very simple climate models generate many of the basic results."
are you talking about science or a priesthood? the objective data should of been shared and not hoarded from the centralized network. what you are describing is worse then fudging the data.
Said agrees with Foucault that knowledge and scholarship are about power and domination and little else. In a passage on this topic, Said describes his view of Western scholarship as simply the result of a consensus which imposes a narrative structure based on authority (21-2). In this discussion, Said does not even acknowledge the existence or possibility of knowledge and truth. It is Said’s hope that his acid wash of literary theory will help intellectually disarm the West during its period of cultural decay and death: “indeed if it eliminates the ‘Orient’ and ‘Occident’ altogether, then we shall have advanced a little in the process of what Raymond Williams called the ‘unlearning’ of ‘the inherent dominative mode’
also... it is kind of annoying to deal with such a dishonest fellow as Edward because his immediate family never resided in Israel as he dishonestly claimed. We have been bamboozled by the man... as we were by Chomsky.
Chomsky and Said lectured and debated at Columbia University... and do you know who was in the audience on that day?
...Obama is the inheritor of their bullshit
according to the Canada Free Press:“Party Crashers” had five-year relationship with Obama before state dinnerThe picture is from Polo Contacts Worldwide, which ran the picture on November 26, 2008 under the headline:
While the big gun media and American Secret Service are out there investigating “party crashers” Tareq and Michaele Salahi, no one’s telling the truth: Obama knew the Salahis when he was still an Illinois senator.
Polo Contacts Worldwide could make it easy for the investigating Secret Service by brown-enveloping them this picture:
This is where reading The Da Vinci Code comes in handy--if you go to that page on PCW and right-click on the image and save the image to your desktop, the name of the image is: ROCKTHEVOTEJune82005014.jpg
And yes, Obama and The Black Eyed Peas--with whom he is pictured above--were at the Rock The Vote Awards that year.
so obviously the party crasher had an older relationship with Obama then what was claimed.
For example, in an op-ed published in the Washington Post in 2000, Carter claimed:CAMERA finds the charge in Carter's Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid as well.
Prime Minister Begin pledged that there would be no establishment of new settlements until after the final peace negotiations were completed. But later, under Likud pressure, he declined to honor this commitment, explaining that his presumption had been that all peace talks would be concluded within three months. (Washington Post, Nov. 26, 2000)
This is a distortion picked up by others in the media.
As it turns out, as CAMERA points out, during a symposium commemorating the 25th anniversary of the Camp David Accords, Carter agrees that it was a limited 3-month freeze. In the clip below, after former Attorney General of Israel Aharon Barak describes how he knows that the freeze was only intended for 3 months, you can hear Carter say, "I don't dispute that" (at 1:04)
Considering the stand of the Obama administration, denying previous understandings between Israel and the US, Netanyahu had better be sure that his 10-month freeze is not interpreted as an ongoing commitment to be re-examined and extended later.
no targets are off limits. Hizzbollah has joined the government and thus Lebanon is open to full responsibility. http://noahdavidsimon.blogspot.com/2009/12/lebanese-government-lets-hizbullah-keep.html six times as many missiles are being put in civilian locations. do something about it before Israel has to defend itself from rocket fire
Tension in the Middle East keeps the price of oil higher than it would be were a durable peace ever to break out. Any country that depends on oil sales -- Russia, for example -- benefits so long as the conflict stays at least on low simmer. Higher oil prices on the one hand, peace for Israelis and Palestinians on the other: You think it takes Vladimir Putin long to make up his mind?
Does Obama really think Russia is going to do the right thing? Obama attacked the Republicans for being bad for U.S. world opinion, but maybe being hated by the Russians is a good thing? as the saying goes... with friends like these who needs enemies?
A Palestinian man sells sandwiches in Gaza City during Eid al-Adha festivities.
In June, the Washington Post's Jackson Diehl related how Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas had told him why he had turned down Ehud Olmert's offer last year to create a Palestinian state on 97% of the West Bank (with 3% of pre-1967 Israeli land being added to make up the shortfall). "In the West Bank we have a good reality," Abbas told Diehl. "The people are living a normal life," he added in a rare moment of candor to a Western journalist.
Nablus stock exchange head Ahmad Aweidah went further in explaining to me why there is no rush to declare statehood, saying ordinary Palestinians need the IDF to help protect them from Hamas, as their own security forces aren't ready to do so by themselves yet.
The truth is that an independent Palestine is now quietly being built, with Israeli assistance. So long as the Obama administration and European politicians don't clumsily meddle as they have in the past and make unrealistic demands for the process to be completed more quickly than it can be, I am confident the outcome will be a positive one. (The last time an American president—Bill Clinton in 2000—tried to hurry things along unrealistically, it merely resulted in blowing up in everybody's faces—literally—and set back hopes for peace by some years.)
Israelis and Palestinians may never agree on borders that will satisfy everyone. But that doesn't mean they won't live in peace. Not all Germans and French agree who should control Alsace Lorraine. Poles and Russians, Slovenes and Croats, Britons and Irish, and peoples all over the world, have border disputes. But that doesn't keep them from coexisting with one another. Nor—so long as partisan journalists and human rights groups don't mislead Western politicians into making bad decisions—will it prevent Israelis and Palestinians from doing so.
A new Palestinian city, Ruwabi, is to be built soon north of Ramallah. Last month, the Jewish National Fund, an Israeli charity, helped plant 3,000 tree seedlings for a forested area the Palestinian planners say they would like to develop on the edge of the new city. Israeli experts are also helping the Palestinians plan public parks and other civic amenities.
You may recall that back in May, 'moderate' 'Palestinian' President
Mahmoud AbbasAbu Mazen told the Washington Post's Jackson Diehl that the 'Palestinians' were in no rush to accept Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's offer of 'statehood' on 97% of the 'West Bank' (with extra territory from 1949 armistice line Israel making up the other 3%) because the 'Palestinians' enjoy a 'good reality.'

better then the Obama dildo!
There is now a line of Ecstasy pills made in the image of the 44th president of the United States, according to Texas police who have snatched a batch off the streets.
Ecstasy is known for a sense of elation, diminished feelings of fear and anxiety, and ability to induce a sense of intimacy with others. "
the Swiss political establishment can be expected to try to find a way to overturn the referendum, possibly by taking a page from the EU playbook, and forcing another referendum until Swiss voters produce the “correct” answer.
In any case, critics say the decision to ban minarets will have little practical effect in the sense that it does not prohibit the construction of new mosques. Nor does it require that existing minarets be torn down. Moreover, the new measure does nothing to improve the integration of Muslims into Swiss society, which lies at the heart of the problem.
But supporters say that is not the point. They say the SVP’s main achievement has really been to draw the public’s attention to the limits of European multiculturalism, especially amid a growing perception that Islam poses a threat to traditional Swiss identity. Indeed, Swiss voters across the political spectrum seem to agree that Muslim immigrants need to be much better assimilated and socially integrated.
In the final analysis, however, the anti-minaret referendum may end up having its greatest impact outside of Switzerland, as conservatives in other European countries will now be emboldened to more forcefully question previously sacrosanct policies on Muslim immigration. If this happens, the Swiss vote will turn out to be the first salvo in a long overdue debate about the role of Islam in Europe.
Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan once implied that the construction of mosques and minarets is part of a strategy for the Islamization of Europe. The pro-Islamist Erdogan said: “The minarets are our bayonets, the domes our helmets, the mosques our barracks and the faithful our army.” ...and now here is the West's response. We take him very seriously.
these two slides should scare the $%^&* out of the Israeli Government, Chief Scientist, Entreprenuers, VCs and Economists.Israel must invest in innovation in order to come out strong on the other side of this financial crisis. Israel is well position to do that but without continued investment in research, innovation and tech infrastructure, it will not happen. If early stage funding dries up, there will not be late stage opportunities in the future. It could be that this is merely a rightsizing of the Israeli VC industry (which is probably needed) but to me that first graph looks like a cliff, not a diet.

The problem is that American Jews became more interested in their pet social projects like Moveon.org over Israeli innovation funding. It is time for Israel to acknowledge it's need for Diaspora Jews and to respect their input. In the same respect it is important for American Jews not to dictate what is good for Israel's safety anymore. It is obvious that the community artery has been broken
Boxer, the top Democrat on the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, said that the recently released e-mails, showing scientists allegedly overstating the case for climate change, should be treated as a crime.
"You call it 'Climategate'; I call it 'E-mail-theft-gate,'" she said during a committee meeting. "Whatever it is, the main issue is, Are we facing global warming or are we not? I'm looking at these e-mails, that, even though they were stolen, are now out in the public."
and the lesson is that we should prosecute Hackers for exposing the fact that our government is exposed in a multi Billion dollar theft. She's angry that they were caught? Those hackers are heros. The government and those scientists worked togther to intentionally con us into believeing the biggest scam of the century based on lies to make us pay for breathing...
and she is angry about HACKERS? oh noes! throw them off facebook and twitter. These people could be worse then the theJIDF.org lol. The powers that be don't like it when the people stand up against hypocrisy.
