cue the lightning bolts

the only question that matters: is it true?

Iran has signed the NPT. As a signatory to the NPT, Iran may rightfully, legally, use nuclear technology for peaceful energy purposes. Iran has submitted to and passed repeated IAEA inspections. The US intelligence community (NIE) does not consider Iran a nuclear threat. Israel refuses to sign the NPT. Israel has an estimated several hundred undeclared nuclear weapons. Russia and China have warned that an attack on Iran will have global consequences. That's the situation in a nutshell. Where to next, people? Where to?

Lord Monckton and The Reference Frame




Christopher Monckton, the third Viscount Monckton of Brenchley and the science adviser to the most famous British PM of the last 50 years, is quite an amazing character. He is one of the aristocratic treasures of the British empire. He is known to his wider family as "Mr Knowledge". More importantly, many fans of puzzles know him because of his Eternity puzzle from 1999. The first solver of the new Eternity II puzzle that was released in July 2007, will receive 2 million dollars, more than ever before.

He has also decided to dedicate a lot of time to a widely discussed "scientific problem" and to look at the evidence behind the popular theory of the so-called "global warming" a bit more carefully. The results of his work were reported in The Telegraph:

His conclusions more or less mimic the conclusions of a vast majority of those people whom I know and whose IQ exceeds 120, who are able to think critically and apolitically, and who have looked at the technical aspects of this whole set of ideas: the "global warming" paradigm is based on roughly 10 hypotheses about the climate and its interaction with the humankind. For the policies derived from these hypotheses to be wise, more or less all of these hypotheses must be simultaneously satisfied.

However, one half of these hypotheses are almost certainly untrue, one third of them is very unlikely, and the rest is unproven. The "global warming paradigm" is supported by downright false statements about the scientific opinions of the actual scientists; unjustified negligence of the natural variability in comparison with the recent trends; negligence of the influence of solar dynamics, cosmic rays, and other effects; unrealistic estimates about the influence of higher temperatures on life and humanity and the sign of this effect; overestimates of the capability of the recently proposed regulating mechanisms to change the overall climate dynamics; wrong calculations of the costs and benefits; unjustifiable application of the so-called precautionary principle.

In other words, the whole framework known as "global warming" is not holding too much water.

Monckton's article "Apocalypse cancelled" is filled with a lot of graphs - current temperature graphs, temperature reconstructions, calculations of the sensitivity etc. - references, and analyses of the scientific work. Some minor errors probably occured in his text and some of them were pointed out by the readers: for example, Lord Monckton chose the units of "Watts per squared meter and second" for the flux. ;-) Nevertheless, they can hardly change anything about Monckton's qualitative conclusions: it is incredibly unlikely that the whole ideology behind the recently proposed international policies can be supported by a comprehensive rational or even scientific justification. And incidentally, the dominant motivation behind these policies is probably the dream of certain people to create a world government.

Most people whom I consider to be respectable mainstream climate scientists - Richard Lindzen, Hans von Storch, and several others - would probably think that Monckton has offered a legitimate viewpoint on this whole set of issues that can be viewed as an informed outsider's unusually qualified zeroth approximation how to think about the climate and its interactions with the mankind.

But there exists a certain rather aggressive class of people who find Monckton's analysis to be a very inconvenient truth, if I can use the words of one of them, much like any other analysis whose conclusions are just a little bit similar. The heretics who carry these "dangerous" opinions must be attacked, destroyed, silenced, and removed. Their comments at all blogs controlled by the nice, progressive believers in the global warming must be erased because the Earth, if not the Universe or even the multiverse, is at stake. Needless to say, this also applies to all of my comments at Cosmic Variance.

If you open news.google.com, you will find about 16,800 articles with the keyword "global warming" that were published during the last 30 days or so in sufficiently important media. That's more than 1000 times more than the number of silly articles attacking string theory - and even the number of silly recent articles attacking string theory was higher by more than one order of magnitude than what it should have been. ;-) Several months ago, the number of the "global warming" hits was below 10,000. (Yes, a fraction of this increase is due to a larger ensemble of the sources included in the search engine.) The hysteria is clearly getting more and more serious.

This hysteria occurs at the same time when the climate is cooling from 2005, the number of Atlantic hurricanes has dropped by 70 percent from the previous year, and most of the evidence for an "exceptional global warming" such as the "hockey stick graph" is being debunked by the scientific panel of the National Academy of Sciences, another panel ordered by the U.S. lawmakers, and by other scientists.

This hysteria clearly doesn't depend on science in any substantial way. If you look at these 16,800 articles, most of them are nothing else than pure crap. They offer ever crazier catastrophic predictions and ever more insane ideas how to fight with the alleged "problem" to ever less educated and ever more manipulable readers who are exerting ever more irrational pressure on the politicians. The articles blame ever more unrelated events on the global warming. The current standard is that every person who dies under the sunny skies was killed by the global warming; however, the newspapers are always very careful not to mention the climate when they write about the 25,000 Britons who froze in 2005, among dozens of similar examples.

The ecoactivists are suing the U.S. president (30 minutes ago). Various politicians want to create new committees and policies to feel even more important and attractive for the environmentalist activists than they have ever been and other politicians are doing the same thing because they are just scared by these loud and obnoxious ecoterrorists and their semi-serious allies who have literally flooded the universities, companies, and newspapers.

Both second class as well as third class scientists are presenting their irrational views on the climate that have nothing to do with their actual research. It is described how it is important to exterminate or at least eliminate all the "skeptics" who are surely being uniformly paid by the evil oil corporations. The skeptics are painted as a fringe negligible minority; nevertheless they seem capable to halt the whole international movement to fight against the "climate change".

These articles are being written by thousands of journalists who are either intellectually challenged so that they can't figure out that what they write makes no sense, or they are heavily influenced by their personal interest to be interesting, important, and to produce a lot of fictitious "stories" because these "stories" are sold well - especially to the least demanding readers. These stories are also easy to write down and it doesn't matter whether they're completely unsubstantiated because thousands of other, similarly corrupt journalists are writing the very same things so there is never any reason to be worried or to feel guilty: the group-think also acts as a nearly perfect group-shield. In many cases, the journalists suffer of both of the problems mentioned above and several more.

obama poised to cede US sovereignty, claims british lord

The Minnesota Free Market Institute hosted an event at Bethel University in St. Paul on Wednesday evening. Keynote speaker Lord Christopher Monckton, former science adviser to British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, gave a scathing and lengthy presentation, complete with detailed charts, graphs, facts, and figures which culminated in the utter decimation of both the pop culture concept of global warming and the credible threat of any significant anthropomorphic climate change.

A detailed summary of Monckton’s presentation will be available here once compiled. However, a segment of his remarks justify immediate publication. If credible, the concern Monckton speaks to may well prove the single most important issue facing the American nation, bigger than health care, bigger than cap and trade, and worth every citizen’s focused attention.

Here were Monckton’s closing remarks, as dictated from my audio recording:

At [the 2009 United Nations Climate Change Conference in] Copenhagen, this December, weeks away, a treaty will be signed. Your president will sign it. Most of the third world countries will sign it, because they think they’re going to get money out of it. Most of the left-wing regime from the European Union will rubber stamp it. Virtually nobody won’t sign it.

the dragon spews fire at the elephant

excerpt:

The diplomatic backdrop was evidently getting electrified when the People's Daily struck. It literally tore into Indian policies. Leaving aside specifics, it dealt with what Beijing assessed to be the core issue - India's obsession with superpower status born out of its rooted complexes of having "constantly been under foreign rule ... throughout history" and its "recklessness and arrogance" towards its neighbors. "The dream of superpower is mingled with the thought of hegemony, which places the South Asian giant in an awkward situation and results in its repeated failure," the commentary pointed out.

The striking thing about the Chinese commentary was that it echoed a widespread criticism that is quite often voiced by India's neighbors. The commentary sought to establish a commonality of concerns between China and India's neighbors over the rising tide of Indian nationalism in the past decade or so with its disagreeable manifestations for regional cooperation. "To everyone's disappointment, India pursues a foreign policy of 'befriend the far and attack the near' ... India, which vows to be a superpower, needs to have its eyes on relations with neighbors and abandon its recklessness and arrogance as the world is undergoing earthshaking changes," the commentary claimed.

Beijing surely factored in that almost without exception, India's neighbors voice similar concerns and are currently seeking friendly and close ties with China to balance India's perceived overbearing attitude towards them. In effect, the Chinese commentary tapped into the near-total isolation that India faces today in the South Asian region.

corporate media makes huge mistake, immediately turns venomous blame onto the family

THE CORPORATE MEDIA VULTURES FUCKED UP NOW THEY HAVE TO THROW THIS FAMILY UNDER THE BUS. DO YOU SEE????? - ED.

Upset that anyone would think he would stage a stunt involving his own son and a homemade flying-saucerlike balloon and struggling with still-raw emotions, Richard Heene called Thursday’s riveting drama played out in the skies over northern Colorado a “horrible moment.”

...“I’m starting to get a little ticked off,” Heene told Vieira regarding allegations of a staged stunt. “I’m repetitively getting asked this. What do I have to gain out of this? I’m not selling anything. I’m not advertising anything. My family and I, we do this all the time.”

...Heene said he was unaware of the national interest in the drama. “I don’t have cable. I had no idea what was going on,” he said, adding that his only concern was his son.

air force research paper from 1996 explains how strategy works

WE *ARE* THE TARGET. THAT IS WHY OUR VALUES HAVE COME UNDER CONSTANT ATTACK.
links removed - ed.

excerpt:

Strategic attack in the 2025 program is both unchanged from what it has been throughout human history and yet radically different. How can this duality be true? The truth is found in the ends and means of strategic attack.

Across time, the objective of strategic attack has been to conduct operations that would have a war-winning effect on an adversary. We need look no further than proposed Air Force doctrine, which asserts that the goal of strategic attack is to conduct operations "to a point where the enemy no longer retains the ability or will to wage war or carry out aggressive activity."2 In other words, we are doing things that will affect the entire war, not just a particular target, battle, or campaign. Therefore, it is the end result of strategic attack that has not changed.

The part of strategic attack that has changed involves the means. The methods by which attacks are planned and conducted to produce strategic effects will be very different in 30 years. The leaping advance of technology, different ways of organizing these technologies, and evolving military doctrine guarantee that the means will change. Clearly, strategic attack is not about weapons-any weapon can be strategic if it affects the adversary's ability or will to wage war. Furthermore, the same weapon can be tactical, operational, or strategic, depending on its use and how it affects the enemy.

The key to strategic effect is the opponent's values. Every adversary is unique; therefore, every strategic attack will be different. This idea has been handed down through generations of warriors as the concept of a center of gravity (COG).3 The term COG created a good image in an age of Lapacian determinism, where machinery was the model; however, in 2025 the view is more organic, so the COG concept loses some of its usefulness. A more descriptive term is LOV: that which is held dear and which, if influenced or threatened would affect the enemy's ability or will to wage war or carry out aggressive activity.4

Armed with the term LOV, we turn to the wave metaphor of Alvin and Hiedi Toffler for a framework in which to conduct strategic thinking. The Tofflers' paradigm asserts that human societies are evolving upward in waves, rather than in a constant climb. The societal waves are split into three segments, based upon what drives the entity's economy: agriculture, industry, or information. Further, the values of each wave society differ from those which another wave holds dear.5 The world in 2025 will contain societies rooted in each wave.

The Toffler model is useful to the warrior because it can be applied to a diverse range of potential adversaries. By using the wave model to ascertain the dominate societal focus of an adversary, one can gain insight into critical LOVs. With LOVs accurately determined, the samurai of 2025 can prosecute an effective strategic attack.

The Toffler wave model provides a point of departure for planning attacks.6 It suggests that: (1) first wave adversaries are best dealt with by targeting individual leaders or territory; (2) second wave opponents will be threatened by destruction of armies or industry, and (3) third wave enemies focus on idea-centered technologies or economies.7

the coming stock market 'wipe out'

Some things are preventable, others are just another part of the plan. If you remember nothing else, remember this: Poor people have pitchforks, rich people have laser guided missiles.

The stock market is not that difficult to understand. It is a place where people can buy shares of ownership in someone else's business. Buy enough shares and you end up owning the company yourself. As an Investment, stocks only make sense:
...
The big money has left the stock market. So why is the Dow climbing back up like a crazy Zombie buried under a concrete slab? It should be dead, right? The answer lies in the "Plan" or the "Agenda" of those that rule over us. These people are at worst Satanists and at best Luciferians. Would you buy a used car from these folks?

Finance's Five Fatal Flaws

What exactly is the function of the financial sector in our society? Simply this: Its sole function is supplying capital efficiently to aid the real economy. The financial sector is a tool to help those that make real tools, not an end in itself. But five fatal flaws in the financial sector's current structure have created a monster that drains the real economy, promotes fraud and corruption, threatens democracy, and causes recurrent, intensifying crises.

1. The financial sector harms the real economy.

Even when not in crisis, the financial sector harms the real economy. First, it is vastly too large. The finance sector is an intermediary -- essentially a "middleman". Like all middlemen, it should be as small as possible, while still being capable of accomplishing its mission. Otherwise it is inherently parasitical. Unfortunately, it is now vastly larger than necessary, dwarfing the real economy it is supposed to serve. Forty years ago, our real economy grew better with a financial sector that received one-twentieth as large a percentage of total profits (2%) than does the current financial sector (40%). The minimum measure of how much damage the bloated, grossly over-compensated finance sector causes to the real economy is this massive increase in the share of total national income wasted through the finance sector's parasitism.

who owns and controls the food supply chain?

remember this when things go wrong. - ed.


Archer Daniels Midland Company (NYSE: ADM) today announced that it has acquired five oceangoing dry-bulk commodity vessels, ranging in length between 179 and 225 meters (587 and 738 feet). The five carriers – one Handy, one Handymax, a Supermax and two Panamax vessels – provide cargo-carrying capacity between 36,000 tons and 67,000 tons and will transport all types of grain, grain products and bulk commodities to and from ports in Europe, South America, Asia and other parts of the world.

“These five carriers compliment ADM’s global transportation network and allow us to ship grain throughout the world with more flexibility and lower cost than outside carriers,” said Royce Wilken, an officer of ADM Transportation. “As we continue to expand our continental transportation networks around the world, connecting these regions on a global scale aligns with our strategy to expand the geographic scope of our business.”

...“In addition to providing us greater control of the supply chain, these vessels will improve operating margins, and help to position us ahead of our competitors with regards to net delivery cost,” said Wilken. “The productivity gains these vessels bring to ADM will also help ensure that our just-in-time delivery capabilities are among the best in the industry.”

Ireland: top insurer tells 1000 GPs not to give swine flu vaccine

By Eilish O'Regan, Health Correspondent

Wednesday October 14 2009

An insurance company has warned 1,000 GPs not to administer the swine flu vaccine.

The HSE plans to enlist family doctors to give the swine flu vaccine to patients with pre-existing medical conditions.

But an insurance company which covers around 1,000 of the 2,200 to 2,500 GPs in the country advised them not to sign up for the work because of legal indemnity issues.

The HSE has given GPs until today to sign up to give the vaccine to 400,000 of their patients with certain medical conditions from next week.

Steve Quayle: BEAST = Biometric Encryption And Satellite Tracking

October 15, 2009
Steve Quayle

"The Beast rises from its hidden depths of other world origins to first enslave and then devour its unsuspecting worshippers"

Although this is a great intro for a sci-fi movie, unfortunately its real. Based in Belgium the "BEAST" – Biometric Encryption and Satellite Tracking – is very well-funded and in total "ready" mode for the day when everyone left alive will be forced to take the Mark of the Beast as admission into the New World Order!

In the last 24 hours as I write this on 10/15/09, verification has come in from an Asian source that indicates "The bioweapon at the tip of the needle with the nanotech device is located there. It is part of the super-cray computer system located in central Europe".

'The Lucifer Strain'; as I am calling the genetically modified vaccines that are being forced on the public through a psychological operation that would make the greatest tyrants in history jealous has a more sinister side than most can embrace. Ten years ago I proposed that the ideal killing machine would be a genetically modified and altered vaccine that would be forced on the worlds population to 'HELP' them.

I stated for the record that the US military would be intentionally destroyed by its enemies and traitors within our own Government. I suggested that through enough obscuring of disclosure that a binary bio-weapon would be designed that would be initially injected into the soldier with the final injection being the 'finishing touch' through administering a secondary injection.

In the last 48 hours it was noted in the mainstream press, that the German Army is being given a different vaccine than the German people. Additional information received by us, stated that private military contractors – mercenaries – were being given a "safe vaccine" different than the one going to the people in the US and the general military. It is against the Geneva Convention to use people as guinea pigs, and many Nazi doctors were sentenced to death for just following orders! The most perilous times in history are upon us.

Don't just let these monsters poison you, destroy you, your children, your future and your lives. Do your homework. Read everything you can on vaccines and rise up in righteous indignation asking the right questions of all authorities.

File lawsuits, write Letters to the Editor, call in on radio and TV talk programs. Do something, do anything for if you fail to rise up legally and morally you will be permanently placed in a horizontal position – never to rise again!

JP Morgan staff in line for bumper bonuses after posting 'blowaway' profits

U.S investment bank JP Morgan is set to reward its staff with huge bonuses after it announced 'blowaway' profits for the last quarter of the year.

The bank posted profits of $3.6 billion (£2.25 billion), putting its employees on course for pay and bonus packages averaging around £300,000 this year.

The profits were much stronger than expected with the bank's 4,000 London-based employees leading its recovery from the depths of the financial crisis.

So far this year JP Morgan's investment banking staff have generated profits of almost $5 billion (£2.1 billion).

The generous payouts will come as a shock to those who thought that the credit crunch had put paid to the era of bumper City bonuses.

But WAIT! CNN reports a problem! BUT IT'S NOT *THEIR* PROBLEM.

More than 1 billion going hungry, UN says

(CNN) -- The global economic crisis has caused a spike in world hunger that has left more than a billion undernourished, United Nations agencies said in a new report.

"It is unacceptable in the 21st century that almost one in six of the world's population is now going hungry," said Josette Sheeran, executive director of the World Food Programme.

"At a time when there are more hungry people in the world than ever before, there is less food aid than we have seen in living memory."

The report by the WFP and the Food and Agriculture Organization was released Wednesday, ahead of World Food Day on Friday.

Nearly all the world's undernourished live in developing countries, according to the report.

An estimated 642 million people are suffering from chronic hunger in Asia and the Pacific. An additional 265 million live in sub-Saharan Africa while 95 million come from Latin America, the Caribbean, the Near East and North Africa. The final 15 million live in developed nations. Should developed economies be doing more to eradicate hunger, poverty?

The number of hungry spiked as the global economic crisis took hold and governments pumped [YOUR TAX DOLLARS] resources into stabilizing financial markets. [BANKERS' POCKETS!!!!] The move meant smaller investments in agriculture and food distribution.

"World leaders have reacted forcefully to the financial and economic crisis, and succeeded in mobilizing billions of dollars in a short time period. The same strong action is needed now to combat hunger and poverty," said Jacques Diouf, director-general of the FAO.

"The rising number of hungry people is intolerable."

The report calls for greater investment in agriculture to tackle long and short-term hunger by making farmers productive and more resilient to crises.

"We know what is needed to meet urgent hunger needs -- we just need the resources and the international commitment to do the job," Sheeran said.

syria + turkey

Gaziantep, Turkey (SANA) – The 1st ministerial meeting of the Syrian-Turkish High-Level Strategic Cooperation Council was concluded on Tuesday evening with a closing session at the Turkish city of Gaziantep.

During the closing session, the results of the bilateral meetings between ministers were reviewed in order to establish basis for projects, agreements and cooperation mechanisms between the two countries, which will lead to strategic partnership between the two countries in various fields.

At the beginning of the meeting, Assistant Vice President Lieutenant General Hassan Tourkmani said "We can now look with confidence to the future which will show the results of our work for developing this partnership, which will serve the interests of the two brotherly peoples."

For his part, Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu affirmed that the peoples of the two countries and their cities are embracing in a new beginning that will create a better future for our grandchildren.

A joint statement was issued at the end of the meeting, stating the following:

The government of the Syrian Arab Republic and the government of the Turkish Republic agreed to form a long-term strategic partnership to bolster and expand their cooperation in a wide spectrum of issues of mutual benefit and interest and strengthen the cultural bongs and solidarity among their peoples, which aims to build upon their strong bonds due to their mutual historical, cultural, fraternal and good-neighborly relation.

During the visit of President Bashar al-Assad to Turkey on September 16, the two sides affirmed their agreement to the establishment of the Syrian-Turkish High-Level Strategic Cooperation Council to serve as a systematic dialogue mechanism for expanding and institutionalizing the satisfactory standing cooperation between the two countries.

Syria to Hold Military Drill with Turkey, US Faults Ankara on Israel

14/10/2009 The United States criticized Turkey on Tuesday for canceling a NATO military exercise which was to include Israeli participation. Israeli occupation officials have said the international military exercise, which was supposed to be held this week in Turkey and to include the U.S. and NATO, were scrapped over Turkish opposition to Israel's participation.

Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said the reason for scrapping the drill was linked to Israel's war in the Gaza Strip last winter.

U.S. State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley said Tuesday that "as to the question of whether there was a government that was invited to participate and then removed at the last minute, we think it's inappropriate for any nation to be removed from an exercise like this at the last minute."

He was asked whether that was what happened, and Israel was the spurned country. He confirmed both. Syria, however, praised Turkey for canceling the exercise, saying it amounted to a reprimand for Israel's occupation of Arab lands.

The Palestinian resistance group Hamas also applauded the Turkish decision, saying other Muslim nations should take similar steps, including severing ties with Israel.

Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Mouallem commended Ankara canceling of the exercises, in comments made during a high-level meeting of Turkish and Syrian ministers. "We extremely welcome that decision. This decision is based on Turkey's approach towards Israel and reflects the way Turkey regards the Israeli attack in Gaza," Mouallem told reporters in the Syrian city of Aleppo, where 10 Turkish ministers met 15 Syrian ministers to discuss energy and electricity projects.

Israel will/may attack Iran after December

Israel is making preparations to carry out military attacks in Iran after December, a French magazine reported overnight Wednesday.

According to a report in Le Canard Enchainé quoted by Israel Radio, Jerusalem has already ordered high-quality combat rations from a French food manufacturer for soldiers serving in elite units and has also asked reservists of these units staying abroad to return to Israel.

The magazine further reported that in a recent visit to France, IDF Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi told his French counterpart Jean-Louis Georgelin that Israel is not planning to bomb Iran, but may send elite troops to conduct activities on the ground there.

These, according to the magazine, could involve sabotage of nuclear facilities as well as assassinations of top Iranian nuclear scientists.

Israel has recently toned down rhetoric against Iran so as not to hinder US diplomatic efforts at bringing Teheran to become transparent regarding its nuclear program, but neither Jerusalem nor Washington have so far made any unequivocal statements to the effect that the military option against Iran was no longer being considered.

Israel has maintained that it has the military capability to tackle Iran on its own if sanctions against the Islamic Republic prove ineffective.

Israel accuses Iran of seeking to acquire nuclear weapons. Teheran maintains that its nuclear program is peaceful.

The Jerusalem Post could not confirm Le Canard Enchainé's report.

it really is ALL ABOUT THE MONEY

woman permanently and severely disabled by flu shot



HOW MANY TIMES will they tell you how RARE it is to get a complication like this?

The shots are dangerous and unnecessary. AND PROFITABLE.

Here's ABC getting out all the talking points as CYA for doctors and other parties raking in the cash. Nobody's really doing anything *wrong* see?

Hey, get your crying towels out for the poor doctors and pharma companies who have to fight each other tooth and nail for this profitable new business. It's a BLOODBATH out there. 'kay?


Drugmakers, docters rake in billions battling H1N1 flu
by Dahlia Fahmy ABC News

excerpts:

But some say it's not just drugmakers who stand to benefit. Doctors collect copayments for special office visits to inject shots, and there have been assertions that these doctors actually profit handsomely from these vaccinations.

It is a notion that Dr. Lori Heim, president of the American Academy of Family Practitioners, says is simply not true.

"According to most of the physicians I have talked to, the administration of these vaccines is done for the community's benefit as opposed to anything that helps profit," she says. Heim adds that even though doctors will not have to shell out for the H1N1 vaccine, they will bear the usual costs associated with storage and administering the shots.

"There is an administration fee, for the costs that you can't get reimbursed through Medicare or Medicaid," she says. "This is usually less than, or right at the break-even point."

...
"Flu shots present a good opportunity to bring new customers into our stores," says Cassie Richardson, spokesperson for SUPERVALU, one of the country's largest supermarket chains. Drawing customers to the back of a store, where pharmacies are often located, offers retailers a chance to pitch products that might otherwise go unnoticed.

...The intensifying competition has irked some doctors.

"Retailers and other non-medical professionals have siphoned off the passive income that once helped to cover medical overhead," says Dr. Caroline Abruzese, an internist in Atlanta. "The larger retail chains can invest up front in large volumes of vaccine at low prices, and market to customers already in their stores."

The promise of profits has attracted new players into the business. Some of the world's largest drugmakers, who in the past avoided the vaccine market because of its limited scope -- its not easy to convince healthy adults to get a shot for measles -- are now jumping into the fray.

...

Large and small drugmakers are drawn to the business largely because of scientific advances that promise to radically expand the range of health problems that vaccines can address. In addition to preventing childhood diseases such as measles and polio, vaccines can now also ward off cervical cancer, and researchers are working on vaccines for HIV and tuberculosis.

Scientists believe they can create therapeutic vaccines than treat diseases such as Alzheimers and diabetes after they have set in. (At least one company is betting on a vaccine that helps cigarette smokers quit.)

...

"Because of national security implications, the government felt that they needed to encourage and ask [vaccine manufacturers] to move much quicker," he says. Grayson adds that vaccine manufacturers also face significant costs; aside from the expense of fitting a new vaccine into a tight production schedule, drugmakers GlaxoSmithKline and Sanofi Pasteur were forced to acquire new vaccine production facilities in recent years to keep up with demand.

...


While this promise of new treatments for painful diseases brings hope to many, vaccines continue to attract critics. The National Vaccine Information Center, a non-profit advocacy group, is at the forefront of a movement demanding that vaccines be tested more thoroughly before hitting the market. Although there has been little evidence to support their claim, detractors -- including the comedian Jim Carrey -- believe that vaccines are at least partly to blame for the sharp rise in autism in recent decades.

The swine flu vaccine has also attracted its share of critics. Frank Lipman, a New York-based doctor who specializes in a mix of Western and alternative medicine, points out that the swine flu is rarely fatal and that it's too early to tell if it's safe because it hasn't been widely tested.

Others argue that Americans have little choice. The cost of a widespread pandemic, similar to Spanish Flu outbreak in 1918, which killed 675,000 Americans (and 50 million worldwide), would be devastating. The Trust for America's Health, a Washington-based non-profit organization, estimates that a severe pandemic could push down GDP by more than 5 percent and cost Americans $683 billion.

"We're not seeing a pandemic that's this severe," says Jeff Levi, director of Trust for Americas Health. "We've dodged a lot of bullets."

another virus to vaccinate against? no.

(NaturalNews) Beware, readers, when you see articles in the mainstream media claiming that a retrovirus causes Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). The stories quote new research published in the journal Science which claims that this virus -- known as XMRV -- was found in 67% of CFS sufferers but only 4% of the general population. From there, the media leaps to the wild conclusion that CFS is caused by this virus.

What you need to know is that this disinformation is laying the groundwork for a future CFS vaccine that will be pushed on the population in much the same way as HPV vaccines are now. The first step in getting the public to accept yet another vaccine is to brainwash people into thinking that yet another disease is caused by a virus. From there, it's only a matter of time before drug companies start talking about offering "treatment" in the form of a vaccine.

This is a play-by-play mirror image of the fraudulent push behind HPV vaccines. First, drug companies funded studies to "prove" that cervical cancer was caused by a virus (it actually isn't). From there, they pushed their vaccine, claiming it "saves lives" by preventing cervical cancer. Of course, we now know the cervical cancer vaccine is a pharmaceutical hoax. Even one of its own top researchers recently declared that HPV vaccines are "ineffective." (http://www.naturalnews.com/027196_c...)

So why is the XMRV virus found in more CFS sufferers than the general population? It's simple: People with CFS have compromised immune systems, and in this state of weakened immunity, they are unable to rid their bodies of not just XMRV, but many other viruses as well. The presence of this virus is a symptom of the disease, not the cause.

Arctic being divvied up in Murmansk

There is no need for a military presence in the oil and gas-rich Arctic region, said Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov at the Barents Euro-Arctic session in the northern Russian city of Murmansk.

He added that attempts to provoke tension in the region are careless and counterproductive.

“Any problem of the Arctic could be solved by peaceful dialogue and cooperation,” he said in a speech at the opening of the Murmansk forum on Thursday.

According to the Russian FM, “new potential capabilities and questions interconnected with the Arctic, like climate change and new technologies development, is a factor that must unite, not separate the Arctic states.”

The stakes are high, as the area is believed to be one of the world's biggest untapped energy reserves, and Norway, Denmark, Finland, Russia, the US and Canada all want a slice.

“We are holding talks with Norway and we were able to reach an agreement on one of the disputed areas, and it has already come into effect,” Sergey Lavrov said.

Countries with a deep interest in the oil and gas-rich Arctic region are gathering in the Russian city of Murmansk. They're known as the “Barents Sea nations” and this body brings together all Nordic countries, Russia and the European Commission.

Arctic Sea case still simmers on the back burner

who are these people?? - ed.


MOSCOW, October 15 (RIA Novosti) - A Moscow court on Thursday extended custody of two men charged with hijacking the Arctic Sea cargo ship in July, a RIA Novosti correspondent reported from the courtroom.

The Basmanny Court arraigned eight men on piracy and kidnapping charges over the case on August 21. On Wednesday the court remand in custody two of them, an Estonian national, Yevgeny Mironov, and a Russian citizen, Dmitry Bartnev.

On Thursday the court issued a similar ruling concerning two other suspects - Latvian national Dmitry Savins, and Alexei Buleev, who has no citizenship. Their custody was extended for three months and 29 days, until February 18, for investigation purposes.

Savins said no investigation procedures were carried out since his arrest on August 21, and he saw no reason for extending his custody.

The court will begin hearing a similar request concerning Igor Borisov, also a stateless person, later in the day.

On Friday the court is due to announce its ruling on a request concerning two other suspects - Latvian national Vitaly Lepin and Russian citizen Andrei Lunev.

The Finnish-owned, Maltese-flagged ship manned by a Russian crew and listed as carrying lumber from Russia to Algeria, was reportedly boarded by a group of eight men on July 24. Officials later said it had disappeared in the Atlantic. It was freed off Cape Verde on August 16 by a Russian warship.

Brother Nathanael: Lisbon Treaty gives jews greater power

Reprinted in full but links removed, click here for the original, many links!! - ed.

“IT’S A GREAT DAY FOR EUROPE!” wrote the European Jewish Press on October 4, 2009, only two days after Ireland voted for the Lisbon Treaty.

For on October 2, 2009, Ireland, pressured by EU threats of unemployment and fooled by a staged media “Yes” promotion, signed away the sovereignty of all 27 member states to the EU authorities in Brussels who are controlled by Zionist Jews in Frankfurt.

For in Germany’s city of Frankfurt lies the headquarters of the European Central Bank - with its President, the Jew, Jean Claude Trichet - and his masters who control all Central Banks, the Jewish Rothschild Dynasty, who boast of their historical roots in Frankfurt. Click Frankfurt Office Here.

“The EU will now speak and act with one voice on the basis of common values precious to all Europeans,” the European Jewish Press declared.

Of course the “common values” which the Jews of the European Jewish Press speak of are those “precious” to Jews - NOT to “all Europeans.” The causes, with their underlying values which Jewry supports and funds, most Europeans oppose.

THE QUESTION IS: “Why are the Jews exulting in the ratified Lisbon Treaty while many European Gentiles are decrying it?”

Is it because the Jews know that a single unit of unelected power accountable to no one is easier to influence than having to bribe a plethora of elected officials from each of the 27 member states of the EU?

Or is it because the European Community, which began as an economic cartel founded on Jewish banking interests, can now be manipulated to Jewry’s advantage via the new political and judicial policies that the Lisbon Treaty stipulates?

Some may argue, such as the European Commission which enacts policies for the EU, that Europe needs to present a more unified front on the world stage. To preserve its influence, the Commission contends that the EU needs a unified policy with regard to foreign affairs and judicial matters.

However, the unified policies which the Lisbon Treaty installs will only further the interests of Zionist Jews — NOT the interests of the European people.

THE LISBON TREATY GIVES THE EU a legal personality and an independent corporate existence for the first time - separate from and superior to its member states.

Lisbon gives the EU all the normal powers of a Federal State. This new Federal EU will soon have its own political President, Foreign Minister and foreign policy, its own diplomatic corps and voice at the UN.

The Lisbon Treaty, virtually identical to the European Constitution that was rejected by French and Dutch voters in 2005, also establishes the primacy of the laws of the new Union over the Constitutions and laws of its Member States (Declaration 27). View Quick Guide to the European Constitution/Lisbon Treaty Here.

The new EU will now make the laws for its member states with further power to make new laws by Qualified Majority Voting, giving larger member states, that is, Germany and France, (both controlled by Zionist Jews), greater power.

This will unleash Germany’s historic imperial ambitions through the instrument of a fully integrated Europe and represents the largest transfer of powers from member nations to Brussels in EU history.

By transforming the legal character of the Union, the Lisbon Treaty changes the meaning of citizenship. In a past agreement, the “Treaty Establishing the European Community,” renamed the “Treaty on the Functioning of the Union,” citizenship was stated thusly: “Citizenship of the Union shall complement national citizenship.” Under Lisbon the new sentence reads: “Citizenship of the Union shall be in addition to national citizenship.”

This gives the 500 million inhabitants of the present EU Member States a citizenship separate from their national States for the first time. The duties conjoined to this EU citizenship will preempt those of one’s own nation due to the superiority of EU laws over national Constitutions. All Europeans must now submit to the laws of the EU as “citizens” of the new Union. View Entire Story & Text Of The Lisbon Treaty Here & Here.

ATTACHED TO THE LISBON TREATY is the Charter Of Human Rights which will now be legally binding on all EU member states.

The Charter gives the European Court Of Human Rights in Strasbourg, France, the power to decide social policies for all citizens. With Lisbon intact, social issues such as abortion, homosexual/lesbian marriages, racism and of course, “Anti Semitism,” will be determined by the office of the European Public Prosecutor.

With regard to “Anti Semitism,” which has an EU Legal Working Definition, European Jewry, a powerful and influential voice in EU affairs, will soon be lobbying to exploit the new powers of the centralized Public Prosecutor.

This means that “Holocaust denial” (Historians Beware) which is a crime in Germany and France, will be a criminal offense throughout the EU. This will mark the end of freedom of speech for every citizen of the new Union. Recently, the ADL of Europe and the Jerusalem Center Of Public Affairs, announced their campaigns for 2010 to “expand” Holocaust denial legislation in Europe by targeting the Internet and calling for increased police training.

In April 2007, the European Commission approved legislation that made Holocaust denial punishable by incarceration. But the EC gave member states the option of non-enforcement if such a prohibition did not exist in their own laws.

European Jewry immediately promoted the legislation, announcing that Germany wanted to make Holocaust denial a crime in every member state. Then the bloodthirsty Jews began pushing Italy to initiate the jailing of Holocaust deniers.

But Italy rejected the draft Holocaust denial law. Following suit in opposing the law was Slovakia, Spain, UK, Denmark and Sweden.

Although the EU responded to the opposition by stating that the legislation was only “symbolic,” the vindictive Jews will now be sure to make this “symbolic” legislation capable of being enforced throughout Europe. For with Lisbon intact, all of these countries who wished to preserve their nation’s freedom of speech will be FORCED by a Central Public Prosecutor to jail all those who even hint at some form of Holocaust denial.

The death knell has been struck. ‘Holocaust-Religion’ has replaced Europe’s historic Christian faith. Anti-Christ Jews now rule Europe as they do in America. And all ‘heretics’ who deviate from Europe’s Judaic faith will be burned at the stake…

Klaus says will not drop objections to EU treaty

BARVIKHA, Russia — Czech President Vaclav Klaus said Wednesday he would not drop objections to the European Union's Lisbon reform treaty, despite mounting pressure from EU leaders to sign.

"I explained that I fear, and I am not the only person to fear, a deepening of European Union integration," he said after talks with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev.

"For me it is something of vital importance. In my opinion, the conditions that I have made for signing the agreement are serious and the idea that I can forget what I have said is not well-founded."

His comments came the day after European Commission chief Jose Manuel Barroso told the Czech president -- who has become the last major obstacle to the long-awaited reform treaty's entry into force -- to quit stalling on the issue.

"I don't see any reason to send an important signal from Moscow about my position," added Klaus, speaking at Medvedev's official residence outside the Russian capital.

"I cannot say anything new here. But I tried to explain my position to the president," he added.

...Barroso said Tuesday: "We expect the Czech Republic to honour the commitment it has taken. It is in the interests of nobody, least of all the interests of the Czech Republic, to delay matters further." [is that a threat???? - ed.]

financial stability ratings: britian sinks below nigeria

Lagos — The United Kingdom has been hit so hard by the recession it now sits below developing countries like Nigeria and Panama in the financial stability rankings, says a report by the World Economic Forum.

Out of 55 global economies, the UK ranks 37th for financial stability, just above the US at 38th, according to the Forum's second annual Financial Development Report.

Overall, the UK claimed the top spot as the world's leading financial system, displacing the US, which dropped below Australia to third place, hampered by dire economic stability scores and a weak banking sector.

Kevin Steinberg, Chief Operating Officer at the World Economic Forum, warns that stability is the key issue, not overall scores:

"The United Kingdom and US may still show leadership in the rankings, but their significant drops in score show increasing weakness and imply their leadership may be in jeopardy."

chinese, russian PMs urge G20's role in tackling global financial crisis

BEIJING, Oct. 14 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin Wednesday urged the role of the Group of 20 summit in tackling the global financial crisis and improving world economic management.

They said in a joint communique inked following a regular meeting on Tuesday that the G20 summit should support international cooperation and promote the reform of the international financial system.

They proposed the G20 summit, which involves leaders of major world economies, increase the representative ness and voice of developing countries and transforming economies in the global financial system.

China and Russia will also boost cooperation within other multilateral frameworks such as the BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India and China) for the establishment of a fair and comprehensive new international economic and financial order, said the communique released Wednesday.

The two countries also voiced objection against trade and investment protectionism in any form.

US calls for chinese support on iran

BEIJING - The United States said Wednesday it needed China's support if progress is to be made in curbing Iran's nuclear programme, ahead of crucial talks on the issue this month.

"If we are to make real progress on sending a consolidated message to Iran, we are going to need the support of China," US Assistant Secretary of State Kurt Campbell said on a visit to Beijing.

"We're going to need to see more cooperation and coordination between the United States and China if we are going to be effective in Iran."

China is a close ally of Iran, and has repeatedly opposed sanctions against Tehran over its nuclear programme.

russia overtakes saudi arabia, tops global oil production

by Low Ee Mien on 10/13/2009

Russia is pumping more oil than ever before, counteracting OPEC production cut efforts to influence the crude price. Russia in September produced 10 million barrels of oil per day [mbpd], a new record for the country that recently surpassed Saudi Arabia as the world's biggest oil producer. The increase is due mainly to the opening of the Vankor field in the Arctic. The Rosneft-operated field is due to reach its peak production of 510 kbpd in 2014; much of its oil will be delivered to China.

OPEC, which accounts for nearly 40% of global crude supply, pumped 26.25 mbpd in Aug 2009, 1.4 mbpd over the production target set a year ago. This comes a few days after British newspaper The Independent reported on a secret plan by China, Russia, France, Brazil and the Gulf states to replace the USD as the pricing currency for oil by a currency basket, which would include the euro, yen, yuan and a future joint currency in the Gulf region. Several OPEC member states and Russia have denied the report.

While this isn't the first time that Russia has overtaken Saudi Arabia in crude oil production figures, and there may be some who are skeptical over the sustainability of their lead, it would be useful to note where Russia's new-found oil reserves are now coming from, the holy grail of new oil discoveries : the Arctic. Compared to Saudi's aged and declining Ghawar field, the Russians now have the upper hand in the energy production game, with their resources in key areas from crude oil to natural gas to uranium. As the peakoiler community has predicted, and I have blogged about, since circa 2006 - move along, Saudi Arabia : Russia is well on its way to becoming a true energy superpower.

clinton: we support georgian military

MOSCOW — The United States will continue to support and train Georgia's military despite Russian objections, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said in an interview Wednesday.

"Georgia is providing troops in Afghanistan and we are training troops to be able to go to Afghanistan," Clinton told the Echo of Moscow radio.

"We will help the Georgian people to feel like they can protect themselves," she added, without giving further details.

Despite a thaw in Russian-US relations, Clinton admitted that Georgia was a policy area on which Washington and Moscow did not see eye-to-eye.

But Clinton added that Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov had not raised Russian objections to United States' support for the Georgian army in their talks on Tuesday.

"But we are also making it very clear that we expect both Georgians, South Ossetians and Abkhazians to avoid provocations and to deal with whatever problems they have via diplomatic meetings," Clinton told the radio.

Ties between the two former Cold War foes were badly strained by Russia's war with US-ally Georgia last August and Russia's subsequent recognition of the Georgian rebel regions of Abkhazia and South Ossetia as independent.

The United States has spent tens of millions of dollars on military aid for the Georgian army over the last years. The aid inlcudes support and training but it is unclear to what extent these funds have also been spent on weaponry.

clinton being condescending and hypocritical

russia must embrace human rights

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton says it is important for Russia to embrace basic human rights and freedoms, including the right of openly participating in the political process.

Clinton told a group of students at Moscow State University Wednesday that "citizens must be empowered" to determine what laws they will live under.

She said the freedom to take unpopular positions and "disagree with conventional wisdom" are the hallmarks of "an innovative society."

Clinton said it is those values that make the recent attacks on journalists and human rights activists in Russia a "great concern" for Washington. During an interview on a local radio station earlier Wednesday, Clinton discussed the death of investigative journalist Anna Politkovskaya, who was murdered back in 2006.

rush delivery for mother of all bunker busters (i object to the "mother" modifier for this weapon!)

For several years, the U.S. military has been working on a 30,000-pound superbomb that can penetrate and destroy what the military calls “hardened targets“: Command bunkers or WMD facilities shielded by concrete and buried deep underground.

Now it looks as if the Pentagon is speeding delivery of the bomb, formally known as the Massive Ordnance Penetrator, or MOP. The Associated Press’ Anne Gearan reports today that the Defense Department awarded a contract worth around $52 million to speed up integration of the bomb aboard the B-2 Spirit stealth bomber. According to the story, the MOP could be ready for B-2 delivery as early as next summer.

US docs point to secret Japan nuclear pact

DESPITE decades of denials by Washington and Tokyo, US officials believe they enjoyed a secret pact to transport nuclear weapons through Japan, newly declassified documents showed.

The disclosure came after Japan's left-leaning government ended more than half a century of conservative rule and launched a probe into thousands of files to settle longstanding suspicions of a hush-hush pact.

Any evidence of an agreement would trigger charges of hypocricy as Japan is the only nation to have suffered nuclear attack and has campaigned for the worldwide abolition of the ultra-destructive weapons.

The National Security Archive at George Washington University released documents showing US officials believed they had an understanding with Japan when the allies signed a new security treaty in 1960.

Russia may revise use of nuclear weapons in new military doctrine

NOVOSIBIRSK, October 8 (RIA Novosti) - Russia's new military doctrine will contain some changes to the situations that could trigger the use of nuclear weapons or preventive strikes against potential foes, the secretary of Russia's Security Council said on Thursday.

...

The draft doctrine, called "The new face of the Russian Armed Forces until 2030," is still being developed by the General Staff and will be given, according to Patrushev, to Russian President Dmitry Medvedev for consideration by the end of 2009.

The current military doctrine was adopted in 2000. It outlines the role of the Russian military in ensuring the defense of the country and, if necessary, preparing for and waging war, although it stresses that the Russian military doctrine is strictly defensive.

The doctrine lists factors that the Russian Federation perceives as potential threats, both internal and external and declares support for a multipolar world, in preference to a unipolar world dominated by a single superpower that is quick to resort to military force.

The current document also emphasizes Russia's commitment to military reform, with continued use of conscription, but a gradual shift towards a professional army.

But the Security Council believes that since 2000, drastic changes have occurred in the geopolitical and military situation in the world and in the nature of threats against national security, which makes it necessary to revise the specific tasks facing the Russian Armed Forces and related security agencies.

"We would like to make this new military doctrine transparent so that people in the country and abroad will know what we have developed and how we want to work. We will set goals and lay out how to achieve them," Patrushev said.

President Dmitry Medvedev announced last year that Russia would make the modernization of its nuclear deterrent and Armed Forces a priority in the decade up to 2020.

Clinton tells Russia no Iran sanctions yet

MOSCOW — Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Tuesday that the United States would hold back from pressuring for new nuclear sanctions against Iran as she sought support from Russia.

Clinton praised Moscow for its "extremely cooperative" behaviour in the standoff over Iran's programme, which western nations fear is an attempt to build a nuclear bomb.

Her first trip to Russia as chief US diplomat was aimed at winning support for the US stance on Iran and helping to mend US-Russian ties scarred by disputes before President Barack Obama took power.

Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has said that sanctions against Tehran may be inevitable if it defies world powers over its nuclear drive. Clinton agreed but said: "We are not at that point yet... it is not a conclusion that we have reached."

Russia has been hostile to tough sanctions against Iran and Medvedev's comments last month had been seen in some quarters as a subtle change in policy aimed at satisfying the West.

But, speaking after talks with Clinton, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that for the moment it would be wrong to talk about a fourth round of UN Security Council sanctions on Iran.

"Threats of new sanctions and pressure against Iran under current circumstances are counterproductive," Lavrov said.

...

Russia has the most robust relations with Iran of any major world power, has supplied Tehran with military hardware and is building the country's first nuclear power plant in the southern city of Bushehr.

However Russia has not fulfilled a contract to deliver S-300 air defence systems to Tehran, hardware which analysts say could impede any Western air strike on Iran.

Moscow's political and economic connections with Tehran could prove crucial as the nuclear standoff enters a decisive stage.

Clinton said: "Russia has been extremely cooperative in the work that we have done together."

...

The United States, Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany have been leading an international campaign to persuade Iran to halt its disputed uranium enrichment programme.

The West fears the programme masks a drive for the atomic bomb -- a charge denied by Tehran, which says it is for peaceful nuclear energy.

Analysis by Lord Stirling


Breaking News: The Juniper Cobra joint air defense exercise between Israel and America has be delayed for one week. It was to have begun today 12 October 2009.

This comes just after the cancellation, three days ago, of a joint air war games exercise in Turkey with some NATO nations and Israel, and just after a meeting in Syria between the Saudi King and the President of Syria, and just after the sudden announcement that Russia will not honor its commitments to deliver the TOR-M1 and S-300 missile systems to Iran (due to the Saudi purchase of the very expensive S-400 air defense system on the condition of the cancellation of the TOR-M1 and S-300 sales to Iran) leaving Iran 'high and dry' without last minute missile consignments already paid for.

This also comes as a large explosion 'takes out' part of the Hizballah's South Lebanon command center and arms depot. There are a total of 17 advanced US Navy ships deployed to Israel, many with the Aegis air defense missile system; also the US Army has already deployed teams with the very advanced THAAD and the Patriot Cap III anti-missile missiles. The well connected DEBKA site says that "highly exceptional postponement" of the exercise "indicates something seriously amiss".

Is this indicative that war is about to break out with Iran?

Vaclav Klaus vs The EU, hugs and kisses to Vaclav Klaus for standing up to the NWO

The EU turns its hideous strength against Vaclav Klaus
by Daniel Hannan

Can this really be true? The French and German governments attempting to oust the head of state of a neighbouring democracy? Czech politicians being told to bring impeachment proceedings against their President – not on grounds of corruption or abuse of office, but because he is sticking to a position that he had very publicly adopted prior to becoming President?

Klaus himself has written of the intolerant, authoritarian nature of the doctrine he calls “Europeism”. Now he is all that stands in its way, and is sustaining its full force. I have written many times of what I call the EU’s “hideous strength“: the way in which, as well as being undemocratic in itself, it requires its member nations to sacrifice a measure of their internal democracy; the way in which it makes otherwise good people do bad things. I hope that Klaus’s stand will convince people – not just in Czech Republic or Britain, but across the EU – of the nature of what we are dealing with.

Czech cabinet in emergency session to force President Klaus to sign Lisbon Treaty

The Czech Cabinet meets in emergency session today to consider how to persuade their stubborn President to sign the Lisbon treaty — under intense pressure from Paris and Berlin to complete the ratification as soon as possible.

With President Klaus demanding a last-minute amendment as the price of his signature — the final approval required in the 27-nation European Union — the Government is locked in a trial of strength with its head of state and on the brink of a constitutional crisis. If it supports his demands the treaty might have to be reopened amid lengthy delays, possibly allowing time for David Cameron’s Conservatives to win the next British election and hold a referendum on the treaty as they have promised.

If the the Czech Government opposes President Klaus then it may have to resort to a form of impeachment or strip him of his treaty-signing powers so as to complete ratification.

Barely disguising the anger felt in European capitals, Fredrik Reinfeldt, the Prime Minister of Sweden, which holds the EU’s rotating presidency, told a signing ceremony by Poland that Czech assent was eagerly awaited. He added: “We do not need more delays.”

France and Germany, which claim the credit for reviving the treaty after the draft EU constitution collapsed in 2005, are furious but wary of putting overt pressure on President Klaus, who has a habit of reviving wartime passions to rouse popular support.

I will not sign Lisbon Treaty says Czech President

The President of the Czech Republic has no intention of signing the Lisbon treaty, a move that might allow David Cameron time to hold a British referendum on Europe.

President Klaus, the fiercely Eurosceptic Czech leader, is the last obstacle for the agreement after its ratification in the other 26 EU states but he has told supporters that he will never sign, The Times has learnt.

Asked during a walkabout on Sunday not to put his name to the treaty, Mr Klaus replied: “Don’t worry, I won’t.”

After a crisis Cabinet meeting yesterday, Jan Fischer, the Czech Prime Minister, avoided a direct confrontation with Mr Klaus, bowing to his demand to reopen negotiations with the EU on an eleventh-hour opt-out.

...

Mr Fischer’s refusal to face down his President now throws the problem back at EU leaders at their summit in Brussels on October 29-30, when they had hoped to celebrate the completion of the treaty.

They had also hoped to appoint the EU president and foreign minister, roles created by the treaty, but will now have to be content with a discussion about candidates, including Tony Blair.

...Mr Fischer, who will be in Brussels for talks today, said he hoped that the treaty could still be concluded by the end of the year. The lack of agreement from Mr Klaus will infuriate other EU members, particularly France and Germany, which are pushing hard to wrap up the Lisbon treaty saga.

Czech senators prepare new move against Lisbon Treaty

PRAGUE, Oct. 12 (Xinhua) -- A group of 17 Czech senators said Tuesday they had hired lawyers to beef up a legal challenge against the Lisbon Treaty at the Constitutional Court.

The senators were demanding the court decide whether the whole treaty, instead of its specific clauses, is compatible with the constitution of the Czech Republic, local media reported.

Senator Jiri Oberfalzer said the complaint would be filed between next Thursday and next Sunday.

It may be the last but one hurdle to the ratification of the Lisbon Treaty, the last one being its signing by Czech President Vaclav Klaus.

Tomas Langasek, general secretary of the Constitutional Court, said such a move would complicate the court's decision-making process.

"Anything new would mean complication," Langasek said.

The Lisbon Treaty was designed to modernize and strengthen the EU's institutions and decision-making powers in line with its near-doubling in size since 2004.

With Ireland and Poland recently ratifying the treaty, the Czech Republic is now left as the only hurdle to the required unanimous approval of the reform by EU member states.
