Our Lady in Egypt

On the you tube you can find several videos showing the sightings of Virgin Mary in Egypt this December. There were several sightings at a Copt Church in Warraq, Cairo.
The video is not much clear, but it has amazing resemblance to a prior sighting video, in 1968 at Zetuon, Cairo.

Just for record, the first sighting of Our Lady happened when she was still alive. She appeared to Apostle James above a pole "pilar, in spanish" , and became known as "Our Lady of Pilar", in Saragoza, Spain. The sighting was to call Apostle James to return to Jerusalem where she was, ill.

Happy Xmas!


See the video from 12-11-09.

Climategate: the final nail in the coffin of 'Anthropogenic Global Warming'?

'Consensus' on Climate Change Is 'Fake,' Scientists Say
A team of scientists has sent a letter to all U.S. senators warning that a claim there is "consensus" in the scientific community on the climate change issue is false.
The letter dated Oct. 29 reads in part: "You have recently received a letter from the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), purporting to convey a 'consensus' of the scientific community that immediate and drastic action is needed to avert a climatic catastrophe. . .
"The claim of consensus is fake, designed to stampede you into actions that will cripple our economy, and which you will regret for many years. There is no consensus, and even if there were, consensus is not the test of scientific validity. Theories that disagree with the facts are wrong, consensus or no." ...

V-Crisis interviews Olavo de Carvalho

Olavo de Carvalho explains Lula and the Sao Paulo Forum

Alek Boyd

http://alekboyd.blogspot.com/2009/10/olavo-de-carvalho-explains-lula-and-sao.html

 

Recent events in Honduras demonstrate, clearer than any other problematic political situation in Latin America, the moral fickleness of the so called international community and the media. For that country's independent and sovereign institutions, read the Supreme Court, the Attorney General's Office and Congress, ruled, unanimously in the case of Congress, in favor of removing Manuel Zelaya from power, owing to his violations to Honduras constitution. This crucial fact notwithstanding, we have seen universal condemnation of the new administration of Honduras. It comes relentless from all quarters, from all locations, from across parties, it is an issue that has exemplified, like no other, the essence of what unelected world government means. To hell with local authorities, to hell with rulings from local people's representatives in Congress, for it is the 'will of the world' that a man who was trying to do away with democracy, be reinstated in power, as if nothing had happened.

 

But if the reaction of the international community as a whole is not proof enough of collective stupidity and utter racism, the actions of Brazil, in its open interference in Honduran affairs, is something to behold, not least because is doing it so brazenly, before the eyes of the world, and all one could hear about is praise for the Brazilian president, the Latino version of Obama as far as personality cults are concerned. This is not the first time Lula shamelessly sticks his imperial self in the internal politics of other countries, as we Venezuelans are painfully aware. Lula, whose rag to riches sort of ascent to power from lowly union ranks has captured the imagination of one too many sycophants, continues to be referred to in uncritical terms, as the saviour of the new Latin-American left. Lula represents the "good left, the progressive left", that left which, totally uncalled for, forces its way into the sovereign affairs of nations, to the delight and thunderous applause of the media and the international community. Therefore given current coverage, I thought pertinent to call upon someone who does know Lula, who has followed his career, a fellow from Brazil who actually knows what he's talking about, and ask him a few questions. What follows is my interview to Olavo de Carvalho.

 

—Perhaps you remember Olavo that, in November 2005, we were part of a small group of people who were invited to brief former US Assistant Secretary of State for Western Hemisphere Affairs Tom Shannon, about the political situation in our respective countries. I do remember, very vividly, your warnings about Lula during that particular meeting. With the passing of time, I must say how pleasantly surprised I am with the turn of perception vis-a-vis Hugo Chavez. Mind you, in November 2005, the DoS still harboured the notion that he was a democrat, purportedly just like Lula. However, recent developments in Honduras show that Lula is as keen on interfering in other countries internal affairs, as his Venezuelan counterpart. Yet one would be hard pressed to conclude, by way of how mass media portrays the Brazilian president, that such is in fact the case. For this reason, taking into account that you are Brazilian, and that you have been following your country's politics for longer than most reporters are aware of Lula's very own existence, I would like to ask you a few things about him, starting with: why do you think the media is given him such benign treatment? Most analysts and media types believe that Lula is a moderate, a democrat. How do you reconcile that with, for instance, the foundation by Lula, at Fidel Castro's personal request, of the Foro de Sao Paulo (FSP)?

 

There is nothing there to be properly reconciled. The image and the reality, in that case, are in complete contradiction to each other. The legend of Lula, as a democrat and a moderate, only holds up thanks to the suppression of the most important fact of his political biography, the foundation of the São Paulo Forum. This suppression, in some cases, is fruit of genuine ignorance; but in others, it is a premeditated cover-up. Council of Foreign Relations' expert on Brazilian issues, Kenneth Maxwell, even got to the point of openly denying the mere existence of the Forum, being confirmed in this by another expert on the subject, Luiz Felipe de Alencastro, also at a conference at the CFR. I do not need to emphasize the weight that CFR's authority carry with opinion-makers in the United States. When such an institution denies the most proven and documented facts of Latin American history of the last decades, few journalists will have the courage of taking the side of facts against the argument of authority. Thus, the São Paulo Forum, which is the vastest and most powerful political body that has ever existed in Latin America, goes on unknown to the American and, by the way, also worldwide public opinion. This fact being suppressed, the image of Lula as a democrat and a moderate does indeed acquire some verisimilitude. Note that it was not only in the United States that the media has covered up the existence and the activities of the Forum. In Brazil, even though I published the complete minutes of the assemblies of that entity, and frequently quoted them in my column in the prestigious newspaper O Globo, from Rio de Janeiro, the rest of the national media en masse either kept silent, or ostensibly contradicted me, accusing me of being a radical and a paranoid. When at last President Lula himself let the cat out of the bag and confessed to everything, his speech, published on the president's official website, was not even mentioned in any newspaper or TV news show. Shortly afterwards, however, the name "São Paulo Forum" was incorporated into video advertisements of the ruling party, becoming thus impossible to go on denying the obvious. Then, they moved on to the tactic of harm management, proclaiming, against all evidence, that the São Paulo Forum was only a debate club, with no decisional power at all. The minutes of the assemblies denied it in the most vehement manner, showing that discussions ended up becoming resolutions, unanimously signed by the members present. Debate clubs do not pass resolutions. What's more, the same presidential speech I have just mentioned also disclosed the decisive role that the Forum played in the sense of putting and keeping Mr. Hugo Chávez in power in Venezuela. Nowadays, in Brazil, nobody ignores that I told the truth about the São Paulo Forum and the rest of the media lied.

 

On the other hand, it is clear that Lula and his party, being the founders and the strategic centre of the Forum, had to keep a low profile, leaving to more peripheral members, like Hugo Chávez and Evo Morales, the flashiest or most scandalous part of the job. Hence, the false impression that there are "two lefts" in Latin America, one democratic and moderate, and the other radical and authoritarian. There are two lefts, indeed, but they are rather the one that commands, and the other that follows the first's orders and thereby risks its own reputation. All that the Latin American left has done in the last nineteen years was previously discussed and decided in the Forum's assemblies, which Lula presided over, either directly until 2002, or through his deputy, Marco Aurélio Garcia, afterwards. The strategic command of the Communist revolution in Latin America is neither in Venezuela, nor in Bolivia, nor even in Cuba. It is in Brazil.

 

Once the fact of the existence of the São Paulo Forum was suppressed, what has given even more artificial credibility to the legend of the "two lefts" was that the Lula administration, very cunningly, concentrated its subversive efforts upon the field of education, culture, and moral rules, which only affect the local population, prudently keeping, at the same time, an "orthodox" economic policy that calmed down foreign investors and projected a good image of the country to international banks (a double-faced strategy inspired, by the way, in Lenin himself). Thus, both the subversion of the Brazilian society and the revolutionary undertakings of the São Paulo Forum managed, under a thick layer of praise for President Lula, to pass unnoticed by the international public opinion. Nothing can illustrate better the duplicity of conduct to which I refer than the fact that, in the same week, Lula was celebrated both at the World Economic Forum in Davos, for his conversion to Capitalism, and at the São Paulo Forum, for his faithfulness to Communism. It is quite evident, then, that there is one Lula in the local reality and another Lula for international consumption.

 

—Could you expand a bit on the sort of organization the FSP is, and the democratic credentials of some of its members?

 

The São Paulo Forum was created by Lula and discussed with Fidel Castro by the end of 1989, being founded in the following year under the presidency of Lula, who remained in the leadership of that institution for twelve years, nominally relinquishing it in order to take office as president of Brazil in 2003. The organization's goal was to rebuild the Communist movement, shaken by the fall of the URSS. "To reconquer in Latin America all that we lost in the European East" was the goal proclaimed at the institution's fourth annual assembly. The means to achieve it consisted in promoting the union and integration of all Communist and pro-Communist parties and movements of Latin America, and in developing new strategies, more flexible and better camouflaged, for the conquest of power. Practically, since the middle of the 1990's, there has been no left-wing party or entity that has not been affiliated with the São Paulo Forum, signing and following its resolutions and participating in the intense activity of the "work groups" that hold meetings almost every month in many capital cities of Latin America. The Forum has its own review, America Libre (Free America), a publishing house, as well as an extensive network of websites prudently coordinated from Spain. It also exercises unofficial control over infinity of printed and electronic publications. The speed and efficacy with which its decisions are transmitted to the whole continent can be measured by its ongoing success in covering up its own existence, over at least sixteen years. Brazil's journalistic class is massively leftist, and even the professionals who are not involved in any form of militancy would feel reluctant to oppose the instructions that the majority receives.

 

The Forum's body of members is composed of both lawful parties, as the Brazilian Worker's Party itself, and criminal organizations of kidnappers and drug traffickers, as the Chilean MIR (Movimiento de la Izquierda Revolucionaria) and the FARC (Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia). The first is responsible for an infinity of kidnappings, including those of two famous Brazilian businessmen; the latter is practically the exclusive controller of the cocaine market in Latin America nowadays. All of these organizations take part in the Forum on equal conditions, which makes it possible that, when agents of a criminal organization are arrested in a country, lawful entities can immediately mobilize themselves to succour them, promoting demonstrations and launching petition campaigns calling for their liberation. Sometimes the protection that lawful organizations give to their criminal partners goes even further, as it happened, for example, when the governor of the state of Rio Grande do Sul, Olívio Dutra, an important member of the Workers' Party, hosted a FARC commander as a guest of state; or when the Lula administration granted political asylum to the agent of connection between the FARC and the Workers' Party, Olivério Medina, and a public office to his wife. Sometime before, Medina had confessed to having brought an illegal contribution of $5 million for Lula's presidential campaign.

 

The rosy picture of Brazil that has been painted abroad is in stark contrast with the fact that from 40,000 to 50,000 Brazilians are murdered each year, according to the UN's own findings. Most of those crimes are connected with drug trafficking. Federal Court Judge Odilon de Oliveira has found out conclusive proofs that the FARC provides weaponry, technical support, and money for the biggest local criminal organizations, as, for instance, the PCC (Primeiro Comando da Capital), which rules over entire cities and keeps their population subjected to a terror regime. Just as I foretold after the first election of Lula to the presidency in 2002, the federal administration, since then, has done nothing to stop this murderous violence, for any initiative on the government's part in that sense would go against the FARC's interest and would turn, in a split second, the whole São Paulo Forum against the Brazilian government. In face of the slaughter of Brazilians, which is more or less equivalent to the death toll of one Iraq war per year, Lula has kept strictly faithful to the commitment of support and solidarity he made to the FARC as president of the São Paulo Forum in 2001.

 

—Why do you think worldwide media didn't pick up on the fact that Lula's presidential campaign was illegally funded, to the tune of $3 million, by Fidel Castro, as exposed by Veja?

      

In face of facts like these, it is always recommendable to take into account the concentration of the ownership of the means of world communication, which has happened over the last decades, as it has been described by reporter Daniel Estulin in his book about the Bilderberg group. Even the more distracted readers have not failed to notice how the opinion of the dominant world media has become uniform in the last decades, being nowadays difficult to perceive any difference between, say, Le Figaro and L'Humanité concerning essential issues, as, for example, "global warming," or the advancement of new leaderships aligned with the project for a world government, as, for example, Lula or Obama. Never as today has it been so easy and so fast to create an impression of spontaneous unanimity. And since the CFR proclaims that the São Paulo Forum does not exist, nothing could be more logical than to expect that the São Paulo Forum disappears from the news.

 

—Other analysts have made the preposterous argument that foreign intervention, imperialism by any other word, has never characterized Itamaraty's policy. In light of "union leader" Lula's direct intervention in helping Chavez overcome the strike in 2002-03 by Venezuelan oil workers, by sending tankers with gasoline, how would you explain such blatant ignorance?

 

Itamaraty's traditions, however praised they were in the past, no longer mean anything at all. Today, the Brazilian diplomatic body is nothing but the tuxedoed militancy of the Worker's Party. At the same time, the intellectual level of our diplomats, which had been a reason of pride since the times of the great baron of Rio Branco, has formidably declined, to the point that nowadays the intellectual leadership of the class is held by geniuses of ineptitude, such as Samuel Pinheiro Guimarães. No wonder then that everywhere now our ambassadors are simple agents of the São Paulo Forum. In cannot be said that this properly expresses Brazilian imperialism, for our Ministry of Foreign Relations does not hesitate to sacrifice the most obvious national interests before the altar of a more sublime value, which is the solidary union of the Latin American left. There is no Brazilian imperialism, but rather São Paulo Forum's imperialism.

 

—Do you think Marco Aurelio Garcia is behind Zelaya's return to Honduras, as has been alleged? If yes, it is evident that is a matter of a FSP member coming to the rescue of a fallen comrade, but what's in it for Brazil?

 

The Brazilian government denies having something to do with that, but Zelaya himself confessed that his return to Honduras had been previously arranged with Lula and his right hand man, Marco Aurélio Garcia. The most evident thing in the world is that this grotesque installation of Zelaya in the Brazilian embassy is an operation of the São Paulo Forum.

 

—Given that Tom Shannon is now US Ambassador to Brazil, would you reiterate what you told him about Lula, and his partners in crime, in November 2005, or would you advise differently?

 

Tom Shannon did not pay due attention to us in 2005 and this was, no doubt, one of the causes of the aggravation of the Latin American situation since then. It is likely that he read Maxwell's and Alencastro's speeches at the CFR, and thought that such a prestigious institution deserved more credibility than a handful of obscure Latin American scholars with no public office or political party. Unfortunately, we, not the CFR, were the ones who were right.

 

—Finally, as in the case of Chavez, has Lula done enough institutional damage to remain in power, or will he hand over power democratically?

 

The alternation in presidential power no longer has any great meaning, for the two dominant parties, the Workers' Party and the Brazilian Social Democrat Party, act in concert with each other and, despite minor differences in the administrative economic field, they are equally faithful to the overall strategy of the Latin American left. Lula himself has celebrated as a big victory of democracy the fact that there are only leftist candidates for the 2010 presidential elections, as if the monopoly of the ideological control of society were a great democratic ideal. On the other side, the most celebrated of the so-called "opposition" leaders, former president Fernando Henrique Cardoso, has already acknowledged that between his party and the Workers' Party there is no substantive ideological or strategic difference, but only a contest for offices. It matters little who will win the next elections, for, in any event, the orientation of the Brazilian government must remain the same: in the social and juridical field, overpowering subversion; in the economic field, moderation to anesthetize foreign investors. The only difference that may arise is in the field of security, in the case that the candidate of the Brazilian Social Democrat Party, José Serra, wins, for his party, despite being as much a left-wing party as the Workers' Party, does not formally belong to the São Paulo Forum, being therefore free to do things against organized crime, which Lula himself could never do. As governor of the state of São Paulo, Serra showed to be the only Brazilian political leader who pays attention to the slaughter of his fellow-countrymen. It is still early to know whether or not he will be able to do what he did in his state, but it is certain that he would wish to do it.

News on Golitsyn: The Guardian

Who can one expect from The Guardian? The leftist newspaper from UK?
The screaming title of this news is half refuted by the story itself.
The title resemble something that MI5 (the Secret Service of UK) was spotting some leftist leader just on prejudice, or something else.
In fact, they were surveilled because defector from Soviet Union said they were KGB agents travested as Labour legitimate leaders.

The article cites, obliquoly Golitsyn, quoting Christopher Andrew on the possiblity that PM Harold Wilson could be himself a KGB agent: "However, a footnote in the 1,000-page history says that claims Wilson was a Soviet agent derive from conspiracy theories perpetuated by a KGB defector, Anatoli Golitsyn. Andrew adds: "Sadly, a minority of British and American intelligence officers … were seduced by Golitsyn's fantasies."

Yes, fantasies that came true in 94%, according to Mark Riebling.

News on Honduras, by a local blogger: Don´t miss it.

Everything you wanto to know but the main stream media does not let it pass.

The Honduras (Zelaya) case has proved that the FORO DE SAO PAULO is a fact. Is the new commintern.They decided to move fast to help Zelaya, even if it unmasked Brazil´s "neutrality" myth.
The Brazilian Embassy replaced URSS embassies in the LA as a tool for fabricated insurrections. Let alone the Brazil is funding all communist regimes in LA, just like in the old URSS days.
This is why is so expensive to live in Brazil. Brazilians are paying for the "revolution".

Here´s the blog I talked about : Honduras Libre en Democracia (translated from spanish) or in spanish.

The 9-11 and the Tsunami (Brazilian Ad)

This is the ad that supposedly offended the memory of 9-11 victims.

The ideia is to say that the Tsunami (as the one that hit Indonesia in 2005) is a bigger tragedy than 9-11.
The message is to "preserve" the nature. Because the "nature" can fireback against ourselves.
How could one stop a Tsunami to happen? Or an earthquake?

It was created in Brazil.

Swine Virus and the Government Response

Me And The Swine Virus


No, I am not infected – yet. This is a brief insight on swine virus pandemic on Brazil and the government response.


I am in Brazil for 2 weeks now. It´s my vacation, time to see my family, specially in my little girl – Luisa (10 years old). It happened that part of my family (my mother) lives in one of the most swine flu affected cities in Brazil (Passo Fundo – state of Rio Grande do Sul). I had to decide if I´ll go there or not. This winter has been specially cold and it was below zero at Passo Fundo, but I decided to go. Bringing my daughter with me.


People there – my family included – was specially concerned about the flu. Passo Fundo had 5 deaths by swine flu in the first week of August. Even local newspapers stopped to notice flu death cases.


I took some precautions there: I rented a car to go (avoiding go by bus) and, once there, I stayed at home as much as possible. Thanks God, everything went fine.


Two questions arose:

Why my state, Rio Grande do Sul, was so affected by the flu, with averages much ahead of Brazil´s and even ahead of many other countries´ averages?

Brazil´s measures against the virus are adequate?


Trying to elucidate the first question, let me put out some information.


Rio Grande do Sul State, by Monday, 10 th August, had 44 death cases (now, Wednesday, there are 50 deaths). It is 0,4 death cases by 100k people. It´s is higher than Mexico, with 0,13. A local newspaper made a report on the subject ( read here).


Rio Grande do Sul is the southern state of Brazil, has borders with Uruguay and Argentina, which is on the way to be t he country most affected by the swine flu worldwide. The other fact is that we are in the middle of the winter and RS (Rio Grande do Sul abbreviation) has the most severe winter in Brazil. It is common to have below zero temperatures and even snows here.

Winter time is the perfect environment to the swine flu to spread. Specialist say that below 10 Celsius the virus can survive for more that 10 hours in the open. It may explain why Rio Grande do Sul state and Argentina are being affected: the weather.


RS and Argentina have much in common with European and US winter, so they must be prepared for swine flu. The situation could be worse by then.


But only the weather does not explain it. In Brazil at least, the long arm of government made it possible Why?


The medicine tamiflu was seized from all drugstores by the government by the excuse that the misuse could make the virus stronger. Tamiflu is only sold with a doctor´s recipe so this was not an excuse, at all.

Other government – by the health ministry – measures was to only give tamiflu for the people which was really with the virus or if they are in a risk group (pregnant, children). The problem is that the medicine is only effective on the first 48 hours of the symptoms The lab tests asserting who was really infected are delivered only 15 days after the sample was collected. So these measures were useless.

Thank god, doctors at Passo Fundo hospital (São Vicente) started to ignore Health Ministry recommendations and gave tamiflu to all suspected to have swine flu. It made many people survive. But initially many officials consider to apply disciplinary action against SaoVicente Hospital board because they are not following the instructions. Many other hospitals around the country followed São Vicente and could save many lives too.

I believe that none central government can replace the doctor authority on what is the best for his patients.


On this issue, you can read an opinion by a Brazilian doctor here:

No, Obaba Still Not Proven As Foreigner

Contrary to the last post, and to my friend Johh Ray´s website, the story shown  at here, it is false.

snopes.com: Occidental College


Barry Soetoro aka Obama is not American

BOMBSHELL! Supreme Court now has Obama Citizenship

AP- WASHINGTON

D.C. - In a move certain to fuel the debate over Obama's qualifications for the presidency, the group Americans for Freedom of Information has Released copies of President Obama's college transcripts from Occidental College Released today, the transcript indicates that Obama, under the name Barry Soetoro, received financial aid as a foreign student from Indonesia as an undergraduate at the school. The transcript was released by Occidental College in compliance with a court order in a suit brought by the group in the Superior Court of California. The transcript shows that Obama (Soetoro) applied for financial aid and was awarded a fellowship for foreign students from the Fulbright Foundation Scholarship program. To qualify, for the scholarship, a student must claim foreign citizenship. This document would seem to provide the smoking gun that many of Obama's detractors have been seeking.

Coup D´etat in Honduras? Not, The Opposite, in fact

What makes Lula da Silva and Ahmajinehad say the same words?
Yeah, there´s a list:
a) A secret treat between Brazil and Iran
b) To minimize the killing in Iran
c) Yes! to show hypocrisy on Honduras

But it seems that some people keep their rationality...

O'Grady: Honduras Defends Its Democracy - WSJ.com
Honduras Defends Its Democracy
Fidel Castro and Hillary Clinton object.

*
By MARY ANASTASIA O'GRADY

Hugo Chávez's coalition-building efforts suffered a setback yesterday when the Honduran military sent its president packing for abusing the nation's constitution.

It seems that President Mel Zelaya miscalculated when he tried to emulate the success of his good friend Hugo in reshaping the Honduran Constitution to his liking.

But Honduras is not out of the Venezuelan woods yet. Yesterday the Central American country was being pressured to restore the authoritarian Mr. Zelaya by the likes of Fidel Castro, Daniel Ortega, Hillary Clinton and, of course, Hugo himself. The Organization of American States, having ignored Mr. Zelaya's abuses, also wants him back in power. It will be a miracle if Honduran patriots can hold their ground.
[THE AMERICAS] Associated Press

That Mr. Zelaya acted as if he were above the law, there is no doubt. While Honduran law allows for a constitutional rewrite, the power to open that door does not lie with the president. A constituent assembly can only be called through a national referendum approved by its Congress.

But Mr. Zelaya declared the vote on his own and had Mr. Chávez ship him the necessary ballots from Venezuela. The Supreme Court ruled his referendum unconstitutional, and it instructed the military not to carry out the logistics of the vote as it normally would do.

The top military commander, Gen. Romeo Vásquez Velásquez, told the president that he would have to comply. Mr. Zelaya promptly fired him. The Supreme Court ordered him reinstated. Mr. Zelaya refused.

Calculating that some critical mass of Hondurans would take his side, the president decided he would run the referendum himself. So on Thursday he led a mob that broke into the military installation where the ballots from Venezuela were being stored and then had his supporters distribute them in defiance of the Supreme Court's order.

The attorney general had already made clear that the referendum was illegal, and he further announced that he would prosecute anyone involved in carrying it out. Yesterday, Mr. Zelaya was arrested by the military and is now in exile in Costa Rica.

It remains to be seen what Mr. Zelaya's next move will be. It's not surprising that chavistas throughout the region are claiming that he was victim of a military coup. They want to hide the fact that the military was acting on a court order to defend the rule of law and the constitution, and that the Congress asserted itself for that purpose, too.

Mrs. Clinton has piled on as well. Yesterday she accused Honduras of violating "the precepts of the Interamerican Democratic Charter" and said it "should be condemned by all." Fidel Castro did just that. Mr. Chávez pledged to overthrow the new government.

Honduras is fighting back by strictly following the constitution. The Honduran Congress met in emergency session yesterday and designated its president as the interim executive as stipulated in Honduran law. It also said that presidential elections set for November will go forward. The Supreme Court later said that the military acted on its orders. It also said that when Mr. Zelaya realized that he was going to be prosecuted for his illegal behavior, he agreed to an offer to resign in exchange for safe passage out of the country. Mr. Zelaya denies it.

Many Hondurans are going to be celebrating Mr. Zelaya's foreign excursion. Street protests against his heavy-handed tactics had already begun last week. On Friday a large number of military reservists took their turn. "We won't go backwards," one sign said. "We want to live in peace, freedom and development."

Besides opposition from the Congress, the Supreme Court, the electoral tribunal and the attorney general, the president had also become persona non grata with the Catholic Church and numerous evangelical church leaders. On Thursday evening his own party in Congress sponsored a resolution to investigate whether he is mentally unfit to remain in office.

For Hondurans who still remember military dictatorship, Mr. Zelaya also has another strike against him: He keeps rotten company. Earlier this month he hosted an OAS general assembly and led the effort, along side OAS Secretary General José Miguel Insulza, to bring Cuba back into the supposedly democratic organization.

The OAS response is no surprise. Former Argentine Ambassador to the U.N. Emilio Cárdenas told me on Saturday that he was concerned that "the OAS under Insulza has not taken seriously the so-called 'democratic charter.' It seems to believe that only military 'coups' can challenge democracy. The truth is that democracy can be challenged from within, as the experiences of Venezuela, Bolivia, Ecuador, Nicaragua, and now Honduras, prove." A less-kind interpretation of Mr. Insulza's judgment is that he doesn't mind the Chávez-style coup.

The struggle against chavismo has never been about left-right politics. It is about defending the independence of institutions that keep presidents from becoming dictators. This crisis clearly delineates the problem. In failing to come to the aid of checks and balances, Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Insulza expose their true colors.

River Uniquely Cited on Bible is Found!

According to Genesis...: Ancient Geography: The Lost River of Eden and Recent Geological Discoveries
See it here too:
Ancient Geography: The Lost River of Eden and Recent Geological Discoveries
(cf. James Sauer, "The River Runs Dry: Creation Story Preserves Historical Memory" Biblical Archaeology Review, July/August (1996)

“A river watering the garden flowed from Eden; from there it was separated into four headwaters. The name of the first is the Pishon; it winds through the entire land of Havilah, where there is gold. And the gold of that land is good” (Gen 2:10-12).

“…in very far antiquity, just such a river once existed, and its long-dried course has been recently traced from its rise in the west Arabian gold-lands (in Havilah) east and east-northeast toward the head of the gulf, via modern Kuwait.” (Kenneth A. Kitchen, On the Reliability of the Old Testament (Grand Rapids: Eerdman’s, 2003).


Fig. 1 Map Showing Eden’s Long-lost River

Four rivers are mentioned in the narrative of the ordering of creation in Genesis 2, but as any commentary will tell you, only three are known. The commentaries, it turns out, will have to be rewritten.

Eden’s Pishon river, mentioned only in the Bible (Genesis 2:11), is said to have flowed “around the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold...” Three other rivers which Genesis said were alongside the Pishon are known to us as the centers of the world’s earliest civilizations, but the Pishon was a complete enigma to readers for millennia, until recently. The earliest known civilizations, Sumer and Egypt, knew nothing of it, and these civilizations were flourishing over 1500 years before Abraham! Satellite imaging and later Space Shuttle echolocation revealed a pock-marked section of the desert caused by river stones which still lay buried deep under the desert sand. Blue is limestone, yellow-orange is desert sand; the pock-marked area in the yellow sand (below left) is caused by the influences of subterranean topography and wind on the desert sand. (the river was discovered by Farouk El-Baz of Boston University. Photo courtesy EDSAT, Boston University's Center for Remote Sensing).

The imagery also overturned the prevailing assumption of climactic stability since the end of the last ice age (ending c. 9000BC) held by a majority of ancient Near Eastern scholars until recently. It would appear, as James Sauer puts it, that Genesis contains some very ancient historical memory about ancient Near Eastern geography. How ancient? The presence of this river far predates the geography described by the Sumerians and the Egyptians, which are the earliest civilizations known to historians, yet its existence and location are just as they are found in the Bible.

This brings to mind an obvious question: where’s all that gold? It turns out that the gold of that land is good! The ancient river, it turns out, runs right by the best producing site in the world today. "Only one place in Arabia has such a deposit -the famous site of Mahd edh-Dhahab, the "Cradle of Gold." This mine, ancient and modern [it was re-discovered in 1932] currently produces more than 5 tons of gold a year. The mining site is located about 125 miles south of Medina, near the headwaters of the Kuwait River" (Sauer, op cit, p. 64).

“This quartz-sulfide-gold vein at Mahd edh-Dhahab is still mined today. The mine, which some identify as King Solomon’s mine (1 Kings 9:26–28), produces more than 5 tons of gold a year” (Sauer, op cit; Photo by Richard B. Carten).

The Collapse of Communism: The Untold Story

Swimming goes to Rome...

I have no new post for several week now. But don´t worry, I did not surrender nor drowned under the red tide.
It was just lots of work to do. I still have it, but I could stop for three days last week. I went to Rome.
Rome is beautiful, the traffic remembers me of Brazil. People are nice.
Ok, but there´s Berlusconi..
But the guy is rightist, no? Eco, ma non troppo.
He received Kadhaffi (the former? terrorist from Lybia) as a statesman last week...
See you.

UnoAmerica versus Unisur / Sao Paulo Forum: The Last Chance for Latin America

At last - and I hope not least - an effort emerge from South America democrat-conservative people to try to stop the madness of the Sao Paulo Forum.
I was invited to join. And I agreed.

If you interested, write me.















Delegates of several Latin-American
Non Governmental Organizations (NGOs) gathered in Bogotá , Colombia ,
between December 12 and December 14, 2008, to explore ways to defend
democracy and freedom, which has been severely restricted and
threatened in the continent. The delegates decided to establish a
confederation of NGOs – christened UnoAmerica — to pursue their common
goals.  UnoAmerica will primarily function as an instrument for Latin
American democratic sectors to exchange information, coordinate action,
and support each other. The Final Declaration signed by the delegates
is the following:


            The failure of
governments to eradicate poverty in Latin America , in spite of it
being the richest continent on Earth, allowed the growth and
development of the Sao Paulo Forum (FSP), an organization that brought
together all the leftist movements and political parties in the region,
including the Colombian narco-terrorist guerrilla group FARC (Colombian
Revolutionary Armed Forces).


            The members of the Sao
Paulo Forum take advantage of people's needs in order to manipulate the
poor, promising “social justice” and better economic conditions.
However, once in power, they don't solve any of the crucial problems in
our countries, but instead introduce Marxist ideological models that
divide our societies into factions based on class and race, promoting
hate, violence and anarchy.


            At present, there are
fourteen Latin American governments connected to the Sao Paulo Forum.
Although most of them reached power through democratic elections, some
are destroying democracy from within, eliminating separation of power,
checks and balances and fundamental rights. Such is the case with Hugo
Chavez ( Venezuela ), Evo Morales ( Bolivia ), Rafael Correa ( Ecuador
), Cristina Kirchner ( Argentina ) and Daniel Ortega ( Nicaragua ).


            To achieve their goals,
the members of the Sao Paulo Forum do not resort to firing squads to
eliminate their enemies, as was done in Cuba by Fidel Castro, the most
prominent founding member of the FSP. They now use more modern and
sophisticated methods. One basic process is through constitutional
reforms that allow them  to control all three branches of power, and to
remain permanently in the Presidency. Elections are rigged and voting
secrecy is, in practice, eliminated. Although these attacks on
democracy are executed quite openly, other “moderate” members of the
FSP -- Brazil 's Lula da Silva (co-founder of the FSP along with Fidel
Castro), Uruguay 's Tabaré Vázquez and Chile 's Michelle Bachelet --
don't complain or criticize their radical counterparts.


            The FSP has a
transnational project that disregards national borders or sovereignty.
To achieve their goals, FSP members intervene in the internal affairs
of other countries, funding candidates of their liking, supplying
military equipment, and even making decisions on internal conflicts
using related organizations such as the Union of South American Nations
(UNASUR).  Democratic political and social forces, on the other hand,
have so-far limited their action to their own national territory.


            These two very different
methods of operation have so far placed Latin American democrats at a
serious disadvantage, hampering their ability to counterbalance the
advance of the FSP. UnoAmerica is an attempt to correct that imbalance.


            In addition to the goal
of counteracting FSP, UnoAmerica will design economic programs to
promote industrialization and development in our continent, in order to
help solve the oldest and most serious problems in our region –
poverty, illiteracy and even hunger -- as an antidote to
totalitarianism.


            Poverty and illiteracy
are the main barriers to the consolidation of democracy and freedom in
Latin America . There are no other real obstacles to development in a
region full of resources.


            We invite all democratic
forces in Latin America to join this initiative. We invite them to work
together to promote a better future in which freedom, social justice,
solidarity and integration, and the rule of law will prevail.

Another Faked "Death" of Palestinian Boy?

Eight years ago, the world stopped by the horror vision of a man and his son being caught in the middle of fire between Israeli and Palestinians. The man was wounded and his son was allegedly killed by the Israeli forces.

After some research, a documentary came out showing that this event was totally staged by the Palestinian fighters and their journalist counter-parts to sell a twisted vision of the conflict.


Nowadays, the use of leftist media outlets (CNN, Reuters, etc) as proxies of the terror networks are common ground, but it seems that something emerged from the surface from time to time, afterall. H/T Little Green Footballs


Boy's death on video is a fake, blog says

Published: Jan. 13, 2009 at 8:27 PM

WASHINGTON, Jan. 13 (UPI) -- A video of a 12-year-old boy allegedly killed in Gaza by an Israeli drone-fired missile, aired on CNN, is a fake, U.S. bloggers claim.

Dramatic video shot by the boy's older brother shows doctors trying to save the boy, his grieving family and the first part of a burial, IsraelNN.com reported. The family said the boy and a 14-year-old cousin were playing on their roof when they were by a missile fired by an Israeli drone supplied by the United States.

But IsraelNN.com said Charles Johnson 's U.S. blog Little Green Footballs uncovered several alleged discrepancies:

The family did not say how it knew a drone was involved, and no family member claimed to have witnessed the attack; doctors were massaging the child's stomach lightly, instead of vigorously massaging his chest; the boy was supposedly wounded everywhere by shrapnel, but there were no visible wounds on his head; and the rooftop on which he was purportedly killed showed only a small amount of damage.

CNN is standing by the report, IsraelNN said. The Israeli military said it had no knowledge of the incident.

Contraceptives: Europeans are "Commiting National Suicide"

Chemist who helped invent ‘the pill’ says Europe facing demographic catastrophe from widespread contraceptive use

Vienna, Jan. 11, 2009 / (CNA) -- The chemist who made a key discovery leading to the invention of the birth control pill has written a commentary calling demographic decline in Europe a “horror scenario” and a “catastrophe” brought on in part by the pill’s invention.

Mr. Carl Djerassi, now 85 years old, was one of three researchers whose formulation of the synthetic progestagen Norethisterone marked a key step in the creation of the first oral contraceptive pill, the Guardian reports.

In a personal commentary in the Austrian newspaper Der Standard, Djerassi said his invention is partly to blame for demographic imbalance in Europe. On the continent, he argued, there is now “no connection at all between sexuality and reproduction.”

“This divide in Catholic Austria, a country which has on average 1.4 children per family, is now complete,” he wrote.

Djerassi described families who had decided against reproduction as “wanting to enjoy their schnitzels while leaving the rest of the world to get on with it.”

The fall in the birth rate, he claimed, was an “epidemic” far worse but less highlighted than obesity. In his view, young Austrians who fail to procreate are committing national suicide.
If it is not possible to reverse the demographic decline, an “intelligent immigration policy” will be necessary, Djerassi said.

According to the Guardian, the Archbishop of Vienna, Cardinal Christoph Schonborn, told Austrian TV that Pope Paul VI had predicted the pill would cause a dramatic fall in the birth rate.

“Somebody above suspicion like Carl Djerassi... is saying that each family has to produce three children to maintain population levels, but we’re far away from that,” the cardinal said.
