Both are the result of
deception, intentional? or unintentional?
First is this from the Brits;
Exposed: How world leaders were duped into investing billions over manipulated
global warming data
The Mail on Sunday today reveals astonishing
evidence that the organisation that is the world’s leading source of climate
data rushed to publish a landmark paper that exaggerated global warming and was
timed to influence the historic Paris
Agreement on climate change.
A high-level whistleblower has told this
newspaper that America’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)
breached its own rules on scientific integrity when it published the
sensational but flawed report, aimed at making the maximum possible impact on
world leaders including Barack Obama and David Cameron at the UN climate
conference in Paris in 2015.
The report claimed that the ‘pause’ or
‘slowdown’ in global warming in the period since 1998 – revealed by UN
scientists in 2013 – never existed, and that world temperatures had been rising
faster than scientists expected. Launched by NOAA with a public relations
fanfare, it was splashed across the world’s media, and cited repeatedly by
politicians and policy makers.
But the whistleblower, Dr John Bates, a top NOAA
scientist with an impeccable reputation, has shown The Mail on Sunday
irrefutable evidence that the paper was based on misleading, ‘unverified’ data.
All the hand wringing, protests, legislation and social pressure
caused by manipulated data.
Nice way to start the week eh?
Next lets look at the one place where we NEED honesty, the
military's stats on deadly airstrikes are wrong. Thousands have gone unreported
The American military has failed
to publicly disclose potentially thousands of lethal airstrikes conducted over
several years in Iraq,
a Military Times investigation has revealed. The enormous data gap raises
serious doubts about transparency in reported progress against the Islamic
State, al-Qaida and the Taliban, and calls into question the accuracy of other
Defense Department disclosures documenting everything from costs to casualty
In 2016 alone, U.S. combat aircraft conducted at least 456 airstrikes in
Afghanistan that were not recorded as part of an
open-source database maintained by the U.S. Air Force, information relied
on by Congress, American allies, military analysts, academic researchers, the
media and independent watchdog groups to assess each war's expense, manpower
requirements and human toll. Those airstrikes were carried out by attack
helicopters and armed drones operated by the U.S.
Army, metrics quietly excluded from otherwise comprehensive monthly summaries,
published online for years, detailing American military activity in all three
Most alarming is the prospect this data has been incomplete since the war on terrorism
began in October 2001. If that is the case, it would fundamentally undermine
confidence in much of what the Pentagon has disclosed about its prosecution of
these wars, prompt critics to call into question whether the military sought to
mislead the American public, and cast doubt on the competency with which other
vital data collection is being performed and publicized. Those other key
metrics include American combat casualties, taxpayer expense and the military’s
overall progress in degrading enemy capabilities.
Now, I am a fan of our military, I am also a Viet Nam era vet.
There is NO REASON for the Pentagon to do something like this, NONE.
You shoot at someone, it needs to be on the record. I can
understand a few misses...but THOUSANDS?
Again, its deception.
Now, I'd like to share something with you.
Late in Jesus' ministry, as He was with His disciples in Jerusalem. The disciples were astonished at the
size and scope of the buildings and specifically the Temple.
It was truly a magnificent sight. No different than a first time
tourist in New York City in awe over the sky scrapers or in WashingtonDC marveling at the marble government
said to Jesus, this is recorded in Matthew 25
"24 Then Jesus went out
and departed from the temple, and His disciples came up to show Him the
buildings of the temple. 2 And
Jesus said to them, “Do you not see all these things?
Assuredly, I say to you, not one stone shall be left here upon another, that
shall not be thrown down.”
So the Lord
is saying that all the building that they see will be destroyed, and
dismantled. Obviously the disciples were blown away at His statement,
The Signs of the Times and the End of the Age
3 Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us,
when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the
end of the age?”
Naturally the next
question is "When?" and "What are the signs of the End Of The
The End Of The
Age...when it all winds down, or ramps up depending on your point of view...and
here is Jesus first and crucial statement. 4 And Jesus answered and said
to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you.
