 A US SOLDIER SURVEYS A GERMAN CONCENTRATION CAMP !

 

It is a matter of history that when Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces, General Dwight Eisenhower, found the victims of the death camps, he ordered all possible photographs to be taken, and for the German people from surrounding villages to be ushered through the camps and even made to bury the dead. 

He did this because he said in words to this effect: ‘Get it all on record now – get the films – get the witnesses – because somewhere down the track of history some b*stard will get up and say that this never happened’

‘All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing’
Edmund Burke

 


This week, the UK removed The Holocaust from its school curriculum because it ‘offended’ the Muslim population which claims it never occurred.

Senators call for EPA to reconsider ethanol output mandate

Senators call for EPA to reconsider ethanol output mandate

WASHINGTON (AP) — Senate Republicans on Monday asked environmental regulators to use their power to halt the country’s ethanol output expansion plans amid rising food prices.

Twenty-four Republican senators, including presidential candidate Sen. John McCain of Arizona, sent a letter to the Environmental Protection Agency suggesting it waive, or restructure, rules that require a five-fold increase in ethanol production over the next 15 years.

Congress passed a law last year mandating a ramp-up to 15 billion gallons of corn ethanol by 2015 and 36 billion by 2022. But McCain and other Republicans said those rules should be waived to put more corn back into the food supply for livestock, and to encourage farmers to plant other crops.

“This subsidized (ethanol) program — paid for by taxpayer dollars — has contributed to pain at the cash register, at the dining room table, and a devastating food crisis throughout the world,” said McCain, in a statement.

Despite tough rhetoric from lawmakers, analysts say Congress is unlikely to roll back such a popular program during an election year.

Friedman, Billings, Ramsey & Co. analyst Kevin Book argued in a recent note to clients that Congress will not “turn on the corn belt” because of the significant number of votes held by ethanol-producing states. Ethanol subsidies could face greater risks, however, in 2009 and going forward, according to Book.

Republican Sen. Charles Grassley of Iowa said Monday “ethanol is unfairly taking the brunt of the criticism” for escalating food prices. Grassley’s home state is expected to produce a quarter of all U.S. ethanol this year.

Farmers have responded to federal ethanol incentives by planting the largest crop of corn in 60 years, leaving fewer acres for soybeans, oats and other agricultural staples.

Tighter crop supplies means higher production costs for food processors of all types. In one recent example Pilgrim’s Pride Corp., the nation’s largest chicken producer, said costs rose $200 million in the quarter on higher corn and soybean feed.

And Americans are paying those higher costs at the grocery store, where egg prices have jumped 40 percent in the last year and flour prices have risen 50 percent since January, raising the price of bread and other baked goods.

The EPA has the power to waive or restructure the requirements if they cause unintended harm to consumers or the environment.

“We don’t think it’s the right move to make,” said Liz Friedlander, a spokeswoman for the National Farmers Union.

The group has defended corn-based production of the alternative fuel, saying its impact on the rising food prices has been relatively small. Instead, it says food price inflation is mainly due to higher fuel prices, poor weather conditions and dwindling stockpiles of wheat and other crops.

The ethanol industry said Monday altering the biofuels mandate “would drive the price of oil and gasoline through the roof,” according to Matt Hartwig, a spokesman for the Renewable Fuels Association.

Ethanol is “one of the only solutions for holding down the price of oil in the long-term,” according to Jeff Broin, president and chief executive of Sioux Falls, S.D.-based Poet, the nation’s largest ethanol producer.

While nearly all experts agree increased biofuel production by companies such as Archer Daniels Midland Co. and Pacific Ethanol Inc. has contributed to the run-up in food prices, there is little consensus on the scope of its role.

The ethanol industry says ethanol and other biofuels account for just 4 percent of the price surge, while the Department of Agriculture says the figure is closer to 20 percent.

Last week a group of international scientists recommended halting use of crops for biofuel, saying it would cut corn prices 20 percent.

Shares of VeraSun Energy Corp. fell 41 cents, or 5.9 percent, Monday to $6.50 in morning trading. Shares of Archer Daniels Midland Co. rose 34 cents to $44.32. Pacific Ethanol shares rose 7 cents, or 2 percent, to $3.55.

“The Saudis’ Secret Agenda”

“The Saudis’ Secret Agenda”
By see-dubya  •  May 3, 2008 07:48 PM

The other day I linked a surprising piece in The Australian quoting a respected analyst who believes that America’s dedication to winning in Iraq has strengthened our world position. It’s the sort of position that’s too heretical for the mainstream media even to note, but the Australian did a good job summing it up and putting it out there.

Looks like they’ve done it again. Different authors, great piece, summing up a worldwide problem into what looks like around a thousand words. Some of it you probably already knew and suspected, but it’s a story that doesn’t get told enough–sometimes for very understandable, if infuriating, reasons. Anyway, Saudi funding:

The Saudi Government – largely through its embassy – is believed to have funnelled at least $120 million into Australia since the 1970s to propagate hardline Islam, bankroll radical clerics and build mosques, schools and charitable orgnisations.

But the Saudi cash that has flowed into Australia, that also allegedly has paid the allowance of hardline Canberra cleric Mohammed Swaiti, who has publicly praised jihadists, is dwarfed by the $90 billion Riyadh is believed to have pumped into promoting Islamic fundamentalism internationally.

There’s an important distinction to be made here between funding for actual terrorists and funding for Wahhabist mosques and studies generally. Even if you, dear reader, may not see much of a difference there, the world does, and it’s useful to bear that fact in mind as you see where the money comes from and where it goes.*

Of course, there’s also the other PR/goodwill money that goes to often awaits career diplomats whom the Saudis take a shine to**, and which universities are always glad to receive:

In Australia, Griffith academic Mohamad Abdalla has defended his decision to seek the grant, saying the money came with no strings attached. But critics, including the Australian Strategic Policy Institute’s national security project director Carl Ungerer, say this is naive and the money is part of a Wahhabist “hearts and minds” campaign being waged by the Saudis in the Muslim world.

US-based Middle East expert and author Daniel Pipes says it is wrong to presume that all academics would follow their donor’s line merely to keep the stream of funds rolling.

“Academics have a distinct point of view and are not about to be bought and change their point of view for any sum of money,” he tells Inquirer. “But they are willing to shape their work and their views. So you can’t buy them but you can rent them. So someone who might have been inclined to ask tough questions will do something else. It’s subtle. It’s not like the Saudis come to town to buy up academics who grovel before them, as was the case with Griffith University.”

Last month, Britain’s MI5 director-general Jonathan Evans reportedly told his Government that the Saudi Government’s multimillion-dollar donations to universities, along with other funds from Muslim organisations in countries such as Pakistan, had led to a “dangerous increase in the spread of extremism in leading university campuses”.

There’s still more crammed in the article, including a deviously clever (though politically intractable and legally impractical) proposal by Steven Emerson to stigmatize academies who suckle too deeply at the Saudi petrodollar teat.

* Remember that one of Al-Qaeda’s goals is to destroy the debauched and un-Islamic royal family. I’m no expert in the intricacies of Saudi politics, but I can see this from the Royals’ perspective: the rulers could sincerely want to walk the line, (which I don’t think exists, but I may be wrong, or the Saudis may be deluding themselves) and try to be anti-al-Qaeda and yet pro-Wahhabism. The latter position perhaps because of conviction but also because they want to cultivate street cred among their populace that they’re authentic Muslims, no matter what Al Qaeda and their other radical detractors say. Kind of the Saudi equivalent of Hillary Clinton’s new prayer-warrior pose.

**To be clear, this aspect isn’t mentioned in the article, but I once heard Daniel Pipes discuss it in a lecture and I thought it was worth a mention.

SAUDI STICK-UP

SAUDI STICK-UP By RALPH PETERS

 

May 5, 2008 — WANT to know a key rea son why you’re being robbed at the gas pump? Well, my fellow Americans, you’re being punished – for giving Iraqis a chance at democracy.The Saudis ordered President Bush not to remove Saddam. The last thing that the despotic bigots in Riyadh wanted was change in the Middle East – especially change that empowered common men and women, Shia Arabs and Kurds.

But our president believed that the Saudis were not only America’s friends, but his personal pals. He defied our Saudi masters. Silly him.

These past several years, the furious Saudis have been perfectly willing to help the new Iraq fail, hoping a disaster would lead back to rule by a Sunni Arab strongman. But the Iraqi government’s starting to look like a going concern, after all.

So our president’s old pals are teaching us a lesson – by limiting oil supplies. When Vice President Dick Cheney went to Saudi Arabia to beg for an increase in output, he got the bum’s rush.

The Saudis aren’t worried about our reaction. They know they’ll always have regiments of paid protectors in Washington. They haven’t just corrupted a few American public figures – they’ve built an entire Saudi cheerleading industry on the banks of the Potomac and beyond.

If our think tanks and universities had to list their funding sources on the cover of every “study” they publish, you’d be stunned. The Saudis and the Persian Gulf emirates have poured money into “nonpartisan” centers, faculties and department chairs from Massachusetts Avenue to Cambridge, Mass. (If you think mortgage brokers are greedy, you’ve never seen an intellectual offered a grant.)

Think those institutions have published many studies criticizing the Saudi royal family or the Emir of Qatar? Or defending Israel’s right to exist?

If Congress really wants to improve our national security, let’s try a baby step first: Pass a law requiring every think tank or college that accepts money from foreign governments, overseas institutions or ruling-dynasty members to register its employees as lobbyists.

Let’s get this out into the sunlight so we can all savor the stink.

Another Saudi approach is to invite influential Americans to visit the kingdom as special guests: They literally get the royal treatment. Our political high-rollers and opinion-makers enjoy posh perks in Saudi Arabia – including lucrative contracts, cash hand-outs and Rolex party favors.

I’ve been terribly dismayed to see figures I respect – but who don’t know the Middle East from East Orange – fall for Saudi pampering and the line that “We want change, of course, but we have to change gradually.”

Even Osama bin Laden didn’t buy that one. But you’ll hear it parroted by no end of patsies in Washington.

Yet, as corrosive as the Saudis have been for our system, they’re far worse for Muslims.

The crucial point you have to grasp is that the Saudis don’t give a downtown damn about Muslims – flesh-and-blood men, women or children. They only care about Islam. They’d sacrifice tens of millions of Muslims to further their perversion of the faith.

I’ve visited over a dozen Muslim countries and many more that have significant Muslim minorities. In every case, I’ve found the Saudis funding evil.

From Thailand to the United States, the Saudi goal is to prevent Muslims from integrating into their host societies. In poor countries, such as Kenya, they pay families to pull their children out of state schools and send them to madrassahs – where they learn to recite the Koran, but no career skills.

The Saudis don’t mind if Muslims live in poverty and squalor – as long as Muslims don’t identify with the societies around them. They want strict religious and cultural apartheid.

So here’s another easy thing Congress can do: Prohibit foreign funding, direct or indirect, of US religious institutions and schools by the government or citizens of any state that denies religious freedom to its own residents. No churches in Saudi Arabia? OK, no Saudi-controlled madrassahs in Virginia.

And when referring to Islamist terrorists or the Saudi royal family that nurtured them for so long, let’s stop using the term “Islamo-fascists.” As horrid as Italian or Spanish fascists could be, they were enlightened humanitarians compared to either al Qaeda or our Saudi “friends.” Let’s just call fanatics “fanatics.”

The greatest modern tragedy for the Arab world wasn’t European imperialism. It was who got the oil money: inbred desert barbarians with a zero-sum mentality about heaven and earth. The stunningly hypocritical Saudis (they could teach Eliot Spitzer plenty about top-flight hookers) have used their wealth to cut out Islam’s heart. The faith of Mohammed, peace be upon him, has no greater enemies.

In this fight, we Americans, and Muslims around the world who cherish their faith, should stand united against the Saudis.

In the heat of the moment, Iran appears to many to be our worst enemy in the Middle East. While the nut house government in Tehran is a deadly problem, it’s ultimately one of lesser scale. Our greatest enemy, anywhere, is Saudi Arabia, the cradle of terror.

Five years ago, I supported removing Saddam Hussein on moral and geopolitical grounds. I’m beginning to suspect we invaded the wrong country.

Hot Air and Soaring Gas Prices

Hot Air and Soaring Gas Prices

By Michael Reagan
FrontPageMagazine.com | 5/5/2008

In case you haven’t noticed, gas prices are soaring, hiking the cost of food and just about everything else. If you believe Hillary Clinton, the blame for all this lies on the shoulders of those greedy oil companies and their bloated profit margins, a notion that like just about every other snake-oil remedy she tries to peddle is simply not the case.

We’re in the mess in which we find ourselves because of a small handful of people with the money and the power to inflict grievous harm on their fellow humans, whom they just happen to despise.

It’s about time for you and your fellow Americans to know just who they are and what they are doing to all of us in the name of saving the planet that for millions of years has shown to be perfectly capable of saving itself without their help.

If you are really sick and tired of $4.00 gasoline, really sick of being dependent on foreign oil, and equally as sick of seeing your food bills go up, the conventional wisdom would lead you to blame the likes of Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. But that’s a waste of time, as is blaming George Bush or the oil companies.

None of them make environmental policy. That policy is set by three individuals two who are located in New York City. If you want to drill in Alaska or the Gulf of Mexico or in the continental U.S. — where billions of gallons of petroleum are just waiting to be tapped — or build refineries, these three people stand in your way.

They are John Flicker of the National Audubon Society, Frances Beinecke of the Natural Resources Defense Council, and Trip Van Noppen of the organization Earthjustice.

Flicker and Beinecke both live and work in New York City where they probably don’t own cars, and they are happy that you have to spend more and more of your budget on food and fuel. You are being punished for being Americans.

Van Noppen runs Earthjustice from Oakland, California. None of these three is in touch with America. They hate America, they hate you. And they want your gas to cost $8.00 a gallon.

Earlier this year they filed a lawsuit to prevent drilling for oil and natural gas in Alaska. This is just a leading tactic in their arsenal. All of you need to call these three and demand that they get out of the way and stop impeding our rights to find and drill for petroleum here in North America. After all, if the Chinese are drilling for oil in the Gulf of Mexico, shouldn’t we be allowed to do so too?

They must be made to feel pressure — the pressure you feel every day when you juggle your budget to cope with rising prices. These three people set energy policy in this country. They order Reid and Pelosi to do their bidding, and thanks to them and their allies in the radical environmental movement we are getting economically weaker.
