S. African activist slams UN’s ‘Green Climate Fund': ‘Government to govt aid is a reward for being better than anyone else at causing poverty’ — ‘It enriches the people who cause poverty’

South African development activist Leon Louw declared the UN’s “Green Climate Fund” nothing more than an attempt by wealthy nations to keep the poor nations from developing.

In an exclusive interview with Climate Depot at the Durban UN climate summit, Louw declared foreign aid or “government to government aid” is simply a way for rich countries to reward poor countries who are “best at causing poverty.” Louw is the Executive Director of South Africa’s Free Market Institute which is considered the “3rd ranked most influential think-tank in Africa.”

Church Of Climatology Serves Up More Human Sacrifices… Sorry… ‘Carbon Footprints’

“10 Minutes to Save the World” is the slogan now being touted as the defining moment when the world expelled vast amounts of collectivist CO2 as delegates at the Durban Climate Conference exhaled a huge sigh of relief that they’d achieved a deal to force every country on the planet to reduce carbon and so condemn them to utter poverty and deprivation for future generations of their own children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and so on.

State Sovereignty: America’s Final Solution to Tyranny

Just following Congress, the 2012 presidential campaign and the inability of citizens to influence government policy makes it clear to every American how broken the US political system has become. A few powerful interests run the entire show and the American people are being forced down a dark road to economic destruction. History shows us that Washington is immune to conventional national political action under the present system. What can freedom loving Americans do?

Federal agents raid Mormon food storage facility, demand list of customers storing emergency food

As was the plan all along, the so-called "War on Terror" has officially devolved into a war on the American people (http://www.naturalnews.com/034321_w…).
This was clearly illustrated by the recent traitorous passage of the egregious National Defense Authorization Act by the US Congress (http://www.naturalnews.com/034302_i…). But in order to fully implement the ultimate goal of total control and tyranny, the federal government is now actively collecting the names of individuals that are preparing for the future by buying and storing emergency food supplies.

Establishment Left Attempts to Make Demands for OWS

Seeing this reinforces just how brilliant it was for the global Occupy Movement to never have made demands.  One of the movement’s most powerful aspects is its indy cred putting the establishment Left, such as MoveOn and their salespeople like Van Jones, to shame with unfiltered handwritten signs. The Occupy Movement articulates what, neither, the establishment Left nor theestablishment unions would ever say because of their complicity with, and funding by, the Wall Street paid-for Democrat Party.

NDAA Attacks Constitutional Rights

In a stunning move that has civil libertarians stuttering with disbelief, the U.S. Senate has just passed a bill that effectively ends the Bill of Rights in America.

The National Defense Authorization Act is being called the most traitorous act ever witnessed in the Senate, and the language of the bill is cleverly designed to make you think it doesn’t apply to Americans, but toward the end of the bill, it essentially says it can apply to Americans “if we want it to.

Lessons in Manliness from Dante

Auguste Rodin’s famous sculpture, The Thinker, is probably the single most well-known depiction of the poet Dante. Originally entitled The Poet itself, the statue has since become as much of an icon of the strength of the human intellect as the man who first inspired it. Crouched in life as in Rodin’s bronze over some of the greatest problems life has to offer, Dante remains one of history’s foremost thinkers, a visionary who places man at the center of his own epic journey between good and evil.

Confiscate Your Guns? How About Confiscating Your Food?

As much as many folks understand the real aim of the government’s war on guns, less is known about the government’s war on preparedness. Survivalists, off-the-grid folks, gun "nuts", and now, preppers who are determined to stay self-sufficient (and alive and crime-free) in times of hardship are being openly targeted by the feds.

…federal agents recently visited a Later Day Saints (Mormon) Church food storage cannery in Tennessee, demanding customer lists, wanting to know the identity of Americans who are purchasing food storage from the Mormons.

What Durban is really about

WUWT commenter Cal65 from Hawaii burns away all of the irrelevancy of posturing and pronouncements and gets to the core truth of what the Durban climate deal is really all about. He writes:

The UN plan will shift wealth from the first world’s poor to the third world’s rich without making any difference in climate control.

Don’t believe that? All one has to do is look at the whiny grifters known as the Maldives, who are building airports like crazy to handle the increased tourist trade…

Pentagon provides military grade weapons to local police

A new standing army

Local law enforcement has been getting assistance from the Pentagon. The recent militarization of the police at the Occupy protests has proved this true. The Pentagon program is getting military-grade weapons in the hands of local law enforcement in the US to use on American citizens. The Department of Defense has handed over $500 million worth of weapons this year. Is the government gearing up for mainstream to rise up? Max Blumenthal, writing fellow for The Nation Institute, joins us to answer some of these questions.

Don’t Buy War! Freeze Flash Mob & Police Brutality in Austin, TX

CodePink Austin, along with allies from Veteran’s for Peace and Women in Black staged a Don’t Buy War "freeze" at Barton Creek Mall on Saturday, December 3rd. The strategically chosen mall location was between the Santa photo station and the Gamestop store, which prominently advertises the ‘Modern Warfare 3′ video game.
The goals were to raise awareness about the continuing wars on Iraq and Afghanistan, to educate shoppers about the costs (both human and economic) of the wars, and to dissuade parents from purchasing war toys. The creative action was well received by shoppers, and several veterans approached the group to thank us. All was peaceful until mall security and APD arrived, and an APD officer brutally attacked a young woman who had joined the group spontaneously. She was seriously beaten and ended up with three cracked ribs and bruises all over her body!
