Earth 'Serially Doomed': UN Issues New 15 Year Climate Tipping Point - But UN Issued Tipping Points in 1982 & Another 10-Year Tipping Point in 1989! | Politics and Business | Scoop.it
According to the Boston Globe, the United Nations has issued a new climate "tipping point" by which the world must act to avoid dangerous global warming. The Boston Globe noted on April 16, 2014: "...
Dave Cottrell's insight:

Doom, doom, doom... over and over again we have had these prophesies of impending and immediate disaster, yet here we are, today, with global sea ice 955,000 sq km above normal and Antarctica 1,451,000 sq km above normal, a winter in the Northern Hemisphere that has broken scores of records for cold and snow, and the alarmists seemingly unwilling or unable to tell anyone exactly WHERE on the planet it's getting warmer.   Only a generation ago, they were warning us of the impending doom of a soon to arrive ice age...

How Peace Negotiator Martin Indyk Cashed a Big, Fat $14.8 Million Check From Qatar, and No One Noticed

How Peace Negotiator Martin Indyk Cashed a Big, Fat $14.8 Million Check From Qatar, and No One Noticed | Politics and Business | Scoop.it
buried deep in the Times’ epic snoozer was a world-class scoop related to one of the world’s biggest and most controversial stories—something so startling, and frankly so grotesque, that I have to bring it up again here: Martin Indyk, the man who ran John Kerry’s Israeli-Palestinian negotiations, whose failure in turn set off this summer’s bloody Gaza War, cashed a $14.8 million check from Qatar. Yes, you heard that right: In his capacity as vice president and director of the Foreign Policy Program at the prestigious Brookings Institution, Martin Indyk took an enormous sum of money from a foreign government that, in addition to its well-documented role as a funder of Sunni terror outfits throughout the Middle East, is the main patron of Hamas

Crossing the Line - The Texas Observer

Crossing the Line - The Texas Observer | Politics and Business | Scoop.it
When the Keystone XL pipeline came through Lori Collins’ farm near Paris, Texas, she welcomed it—until her house flooded with sewage.
Dave Cottrell's insight:

This should scare the daylights out of anybody anywhere near a place where any pipeline related in any way to TransCanada Corporation is going through.  That includes the one from Alberta to through British Columbia to Kitimat, BC.  If they will treat people like this small ranch family in Texas the way they did, what will they do if a pipeline spills into a major river, or someone on the bridge of a super tanker makes a mistake and a tanker sinks in Douglas Channel or the Inside Passage?

Here is what Lori Collins, once a strong and vocal advocates for pipelines and the oil industry had to say, after the way she and her family were treated by TransCanada when TransCanada's Keystone XL pipeline came through their farm in Paris, Texas:

"She had looked out at the people listening to her, “all these people fighting for their land and livelihood,” festive in their movement shirts and tribal attire, and she thought, “You all are screwed. The company is going to take your land, promise you everything in the world, but they won’t come through.’ Those people will never know life as they’ve known it before,” she said. “It’ll just be them and their paradise that’s turned into hell.”  "

Obama tells troops no ground war in Iraq

Obama tells troops no ground war in Iraq | Politics and Business | Scoop.it
Contradicting comments from his top military advisers, President Obama told U.S. troops Wednesday that American forces “do not and will not have a combat mission” in the campaign to defeat Islamic State militants in Syria and Iraq.
Dave Cottrell's insight:

Unless President Obama, who has ZERO military experience, is willing to listen to his MILITARY advisors, top soldiers with experience, the campaign to defeat ISIS is doomed from the beginning.  When a man with no military experience tells battle hardened soldiers how to do their jobs, it's like the janitor telling the brain surgeon how to remove a tumour.

"Keep in mind these people I spoke to are all- to a man and woman- dedicated liberal Democrats who voted for Obama. I’m guessing 90% are major Democrat contributors. My Columbia classmates are the crème of the crop of American society. Lawyers, doctors, billionaire hedge fund members, stars of the media. They adore Obama. But they all admit they never met him in their four years at Columbia. I am proud of my classmates for their honesty and integrity."

Dave Cottrell's insight:

President Obama's ISIS strategy will fail, according to history.  His biggest problem is the same ideology of other "progressive" statesmen in history, such as Neville Chamberlain, just before Britain found itself embroiled in another world war, one that might have been stopped before it started, had the British parliament listened to that great buffoon, as he was thought of by those who opposed him, who warned that if Hitler was not stopped, he might be very hard to stop.  The ideology of Chamberlain and his friends is the same ideology as that of Mr. Obama and friends;  that is, that people are ultimately good, and that if you just treat them with kindness and respect, they will reciprocate.  Such has been proven false again and again throughout history, and unfortunately, will prove false one again.  Just as US training and supplying of the Mujihadeen in Afghanistan to fight the Soviet forces bred Al Queda who turned on the US, so this present "strategy" will backfire badly.  It is not a matter of opinion.  It is a solidly proven historical fact that this strategy will fail.  The definition of insanity is to continue trying the same thing, while expecting different results.  Progressive logic is a horrible misnomer.

French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius urges people to stop referring to terrorists calling themselves ‘Islamic State’ by their self-chosen name.
Dave Cottrell's insight:

The French foreign minister is typical of Western progressives, who will deny reality until they begin to start crying for help.  History has a bad habit of repeating itself.  Those who deny that IS is not Muslim are either Muslims practising Taqui'ya or woefully ignorant Westerners, or worse, Westerners who know the truth, but deny it in the hope their denial will make what they want to believe be true.
