Jihad is in America….The Grand Deception

From Amazon: The Grand Deception, a 70-minute film by the Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT), investigates the covert structure and growing influence of the Muslim Brotherhood and Islamist groups, masquerading under the false moniker of being apolitical religious groups or civil rights groups in the United States, specifically how they are infiltrating or intimidating major societal institutions from Congress to Hollywood, from the mainstream news media to federal law enforcement, from the publishing industry to museums. This film includes never-before-seen interviews with courageous Muslim leaders, former FBI agents and federal prosecutors, a prominent Hollywood director, journalists, even a top official of the worldwide Muslim Brotherhood. In addition, this documentary includes original Brotherhood documents, unsealed federal documents and most importantly, secretly recorded audio and video of what these Islamist groups say behind closed doors.


Dentists blindly advocate communal fluoridation….

A WH Kellogg study found that dental therapists in 54 countries have been “providing quality preventive and restorative services to patients for nearly 100 years.”

As reported in USA Today (Jan. 3, 2013) in “Dentists’ group opposes idea”:

“the ADA favors insurance reform, water fluoridation, education and helping people overcome cultural, geographic and language barriers that keep them from dental care.”

Blind advocacy of water fluoridation by the American Dental Association (ADA), in response to threat of dental therapists (which the ADA opposes), and anything else that threatens their monopoly.

Solar radiation effects greater than greenhouse gases….

An increase in downwelling shortwave solar radiation was found to dominate the total surface net radiation signal. Brightening of solar radiation is attributed to a decrease in cloud coverage. Aerosols have only a minor effect. Natural variability due to changes in sunshine has had 4.4 times greater effect on surface radiation than increased greenhouse gases since 1996.

Abstract: Sixteen years of high-quality surface radiation budget (SRB) measurements over seven U.S. stations are summarized. The network average total surface net radiation increases by +8.2 Wm−2 per decade from 1996 to 2011. A significant upward trend in downwelling shortwave (SW-down) of +6.6 Wm−2 per decade dominates the total surface net radiation signal. This SW brightening is attributed to a decrease in cloud coverage, and aerosols have only a minor effect. Increasing downwelling longwave (LW-down) of +1.5 Wm−2 per decade and decreasing upwelling LW (LW-up) of −0.9 Wm−2 per decade produce a +2.3 Wm−2 per decade increase in surface net-LW, which dwarfs the expected contribution to LW-down from the 30 ppm increase of CO2 during the analysis period. The dramatic surface net radiation excess should have stimulated surface energy fluxes, but, oddly, the temperature  trend is flat, and specific humidity decreases. The enigmatic nature of LW-down, temperature, and moisture may be a chaotic result of their large interannual variations. Interannual variation of the El Niño/Southern Oscillation (ENSO) ONI index is shown to be moderately correlated with temperature, moisture, and LW-down. Thus, circulations associated with ENSO events may be responsible for manipulating (e.g., by advection or convection) the excess surface energy available from the SRB increase. It is clear that continued monitoring is necessary to separate the SRB’s response to long-term climate processes from natural variability and that collocated surface energy flux measurements at the SRB stations would be beneficial.
