(Nov. 29, 2009) — The latest Presidential Approval Poll by Rasmussen shows a -15 index, between those who strongly approve less those who strongly agree, the lowest rating yet for the Obama tenure.  The index adds the percent of the population which says that it strongly approves Obama and subtracts those who say that they strongly disapprove.

Presidential Poll Ratings Jan 21st to Nov 25thSince entering into power the percentage of those surveyed, which indicate that they strongly-approve Obama’s regime, has fallen from 41-45% to 25%; and the percentage of those suveyed, which indicate that they strongly-disapprove of the Obama regime has risen from 16% to 42%.

At an annual rate that is approximately a loss of 20% in the category of strong approvers, and a gain of 26% of strong disapprovers.

If that rate of change continues, then by July of 2011 — in approximately 1.5 years, you’d expect to see a strong approval rating of 0% and a strong disapproval rating of 81%.  And a presidential approval rating of -81 would be the statistical equivalent of an open rebellion: massive public demonstrations, demanding Obama’s ousting.  Which is what an Orange Revolution is.

Thank God for the American people’s love of liberty and common sense, even if they are a giant which awakens slowly.

But Obama’s end might come much sooner, because as soon as he pushes through Deathcare all hell will break loose from middle America.  And the media which has supported Obama’s despite his falling poll ratings, will have to turn on him to save their own skins, or risk being sacked and burned in the coming revolution.

American has never seen a more hopeful time!

Regardless of where Obama was born, he never was a natural born citizen of the United States

(Nov. 28, 2009) — The final nail has been driven into the coffin of Obama’s online COLB (Certification of Live Birth), which was released in 2008 by his campaign to bolster his claims of being born in the United States of America, and which has been used as the reason, motive, or simply the excuse by members of Congress and politicians throughout the country, to explain away doubts regarding Obama’s eligibility.

The now infamous COLB alleged that Barack Hussein Obama II was born on Aug. 4, 1961 to Barack Hussein Obama I and Stanley Ann Dunham, in Hawaii.

However, the Department of Health has never corroborated the authenticity of the document.  Rather, in an email to the publisher of The Right Side of Life website, Okubo admitted that the Hawaii Department of Health had no documents on file to establish that any such COLB was issued by them in 2007, even though the online COLB bears a 2007 seal.

Todays newest revelation discounts entirely the authenticity of the information on the alleged COLB, which bears the notation “Date filed by Registrar.”  It has been speculated for nearly 3 months, by concerned citizens who have examined the rules of other departments of Vital Statistics accross the country that this designation, “filed by” indicates “submitted to, but not yet accepted as verified.”

This interpretation has now received indirect confirmation from the Communications Officer of the Department of Health, Janice Okubo herself, in her email response to Mr. James H. Roberson, which was published today online at 5:58 PM Eastern Time at Free Republic. The email was originally published at the blog of Attorney Leo Donofrio, which is now defunct.

Mr. Roberson sent his email on Oct. 31, 2009:

The revealing email to and from Okubo reads as follows:

Aloha Dr. Fukino and Ms. Okubo – from sunny South Carolina and Old Dixie,

Conducting research, I have examined a significant number of Certifications of Live Births, issued by your Department, for children all born in Honolulu. The children differ, of course, by which year each child was born, and a large range in years is represented in the population of COLBs examined. All COLBs were printed using your laser printer, and thus all demonstrate the same basic layout format, and page spacings of “form-words” fields (i.e., CHILD’s NAME, DATE OF BIRTH, MOTHER’S RACE, etc. all occupy comparable locations on the page).

Aside from the different “distinguishing” information, specific to each child, that was inserted in the fields beneath the respective “form-words”, all COLBs appear identical except,

1.) Different years seemed to have a different style Border – which I assume was intended to inhibit “alterations” ( say a young teenager wants to make a computer template, and then add a couple of years – so they can buy tobacco or alcohol, etc. The young nippers are amazingly adroit with computers these days.), and

2.) On the lower left side of all COLBs, except for 1, the “form-words”: “DATE ACCEPTED BY STATE REGISTRAR” were printed. However, on 1 COLB the “form-words”: “DATE FILED BY REGISTRAR” were printed, instead.

As I’m sure you’ll agree, “Accepted” and “Filed” carry different meanings, or nuances. For example, “Accepted” indicates that all required forms/information were present (and, nothing looked out-of-order) – as specified by Standard Procedures – and thus this connotes the Certificate of Birth was issued with few reservations as to its validity. On the other hand, “Filed” leaves the hint that perhaps the information supplied may be either insufficient, or questionable as to its accuracy. In this latter case, the Certificate of Birth might carry a less than “full confidence” as to its completeness, authenticity, authoritativeness, or trustworthiness.

Likewise, “Registrar” (which could be either a “local”, or Island, Registrar) might perhaps be different from the “State Registrar” ???

I would be most appreciative if you will help me with the following Questions:

1.) Am I reading too much into the different “Words Choices” ? (I don’t want to sound sinister, or cynical.)

2.) Can you tell me under what circumstances would the above different “Words Choices” be required ?

3.) I have reviewed – without success – Hawaii’s Chapter (Title/Section ?) 11 “Rules and Procedures” looking for a definition of when the above “Words Choices” should be imprinted on COLBs. Could you please provide me with a “path” that I could follow to learn about the wording prescribed to be used on these type certificates / documents ?, and finally,

4.) Would you hazard an educated guess (just a general “ball park” figure would do) as to approximately what proportion of COLBs issued carry the “Filed” vs. “Accepted” classifications ? Less than 1%, less than 10% ? Or, do I have a “bad” population of specimens ?

If you are required to be presented with an “official” UIPA request, in order to provide the above information, then please consider this e-mail as such. Thank you in advance for any help that you can give me.

Respectfully yours,

IN RESPONSE, I RECEIVED from Ms Janice Ukubo the following email:

“Aloha Mr. Roberson,

Under the UIPA, the state is not required to answer all questions posed to it. Unfortunately, we are unable to help you at this time.

Please see attached response to your UIPA request.”

Okubo’s refusal to explain what “Filed by” means, can only be interpreted as withholding evidence that would indict the veracity of the online COLB and the credibility of their department in giving the semblance of truth to Obama’s claim to be born in Hawaii, because there is really no reason in the world to obstruct the request of a concerned citizen regarding what terms, which could be used on official Hawaii Vital Records, mean.

Okubo’s response also now makes her liable for criminal charges of conspiracy to use her office under color of the law to defraud the general public.  Because in the fulfilment of her official duties she is legally obligated  in State Law to explain what terms used on official documents mean, or at least to direct citizens to the published documents which explain these.

But numerous general inquiries for copies of such documents have been refused by the Deparment of Health for nearly 3 months.

At the height of the cerimonies of the Hajj, Muslims worship in concentric circles, about the Kaaba

(Nov. 28, 2009) – Jews and Christians are “people of the Book”; Muslims are people of the Rock:  a black  rock about a foot in diameter enshrined in the Kaaba in Mecca, Saudi Arabia.  It is toward this Black Stone that Muslims must face five times every day as they pray.  Thus Muslims must also be people of the map and compass, which explains why they always made good navigators.

According to a feature story broadcast today by BBC radio, the Kaaba is the spiritual heart of Islam (“Heart and Soul:  The Black Cube,” BBC World Service 11-28-2009).  Every Muslim who is able to is required to make at least one pilgrimage, called hadj or hajj, to pay homage to the Black Stone.  Per Wikipedia, “All Hajj pilgrims must attempt to kiss the Stone as Muhammad once did. If they cannot then a flying kiss would be sufficient Because of the large crowds, this is not always possible, and so as pilgrims walk around the Kaaba, they are to point to the Stone on each circuit.”  (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kaaba)

Every year at this time we get news reports of 2-3 million pilgrims doing their hadj/hajj, during which they experience group solidarity and indoctrination.  In recent times this has naturally included protests against America and Israel — “death to America,” I suppose.  This year the Saudi authorities banned the political protests but did nothing to stop the sacred politicization when it happened yet again.

To begin the hadj pilgrims symbolically give up their individual identities, as all are issued identical clothing to put them in the right group-think frame of mind.  Over a period of days, they march en masse to various stations to perform various rituals, including animal sacrifice, before finally circling seven times around the holiest shrine in Islam, the Kaaba/Ka’bah, which contains the Black Stone.  The Stone is embedded in one corner of the Kaaba, which is a small, square masonry building draped with black cloth.

The stone was a cult center of  pagan Arabia long before Mohammed came along.  Per online Encyclopedia Britannica, “According to popular Islamic legend, the stone was given to Adam on his fall from paradise and was originally white but has become black by absorbing the sins of the thousands of pilgrims who have kissed and touched it.”  The stone is also being worn away by so much kissing and touching.

I understand Barack Hussein Obama’s paternal grandmother was bankrolled by some prince so that she could perform her hadj this year.   Now I mean no disrespect to Obama by this, but Americans should be cognizant of the fact that Muslims worship a rock fetish.  It is at the heart of one of Islam’s Five Pillars.

The national crisis which began last year with Obama’s fraudulent admission to the presidential ballot has unfolded like a Greek tragedy of epic proportions.

The Democratic Party was so desperate for power that they allowed a nobody to bamboosal them; steal Hillary Clinton’s votes and force their endorsement, while hiding all his personal documents.  That’s desperation you can count on.  Adolf Hitler rose to power the exact same manner:  the German people were do desperate after their shameful surrender at Versailles that they wanted anyone who would raise the standards of German over Europe. And they got what they wanted, even if they did not want what they got. That was Act I.

The fall of the American Republic is basically a rewrite of that same German play.  In the first drama nobody dreamed that Hitler was such a monster; in the American drama those in power believe they can play ball with a disingenuous psychopath.

U.S. Senator Joe Lieberman is this same tragic figure.  He stands squarely now in the path of the socialist agenda, in his opposition to key elements of Obama’s Health Care Bill — which rightly is called Deathcare, on account of its rationing of health benefits for those who need them, while lavishing health benefits upon the young who live sexually promiscuous or aberrant lifestyles.

Lieberman is a tragic figure because he believes he can negotiate with Obama and come out the victory.  Barring any exploseés of adultery, financial impropriety, or any death threats against himself or his loved ones, Lieberman might think he has what it takes.

But Barry Soetero has already begun to play ball with Lieberman, and I believe he knows better how to play the game. This is the final scene of Act II.

His opening shot was delivered the other day, when the Obama regime announced that it was urging Israel to release 1,000 captured and convicted terrorists as a sign of good will towards the terrorist organization, Hamas.

The suggestion was designed to incite outrage among American Jewry, and it worked.  Lieberman announced immediately that he will not stand for it.  Being that he is in a crucial position politically to negotiate with Obama, American Jews will naturally suggest and pressure him to negotiate.

All Obama has to do is to continue create crises which only Lieberman wants to solve or can solve. And in the end Obama will exchange these fake crises for concessions on the Deathcare bill, and Joe will cave.

The fall of the American Republic is a tragic affair, one in which those who regard themselves as savvy insiders failed to recognize that their political modus operandi was itself founded on some fundamental ethics, howsoever hard they were to discern: but ethics which Obama never shared.

Now that they have let the animal into the ring, he will not show himself to be the tame beast they imagined.

This sort of deception goes back to the garden of eve.  To the perfectly prudent it is obvious that you do not dialogue with any snake.

Pride goes before the fall, and the pride of the Congressmen and politicians who allowed Obama to usurp the presidency has blinded them and made them imprudent.  In the end, they will be swallowed up by him whom they thought was their pet.

If Obama’s eligibility is not soon challenged by the leading political elite of our country, they will probably end up in gulags before you or I — a fitting end to a generation which has so profoundly betrayed the liberty of us all.

Deathcare has never been about Health Care: it’s all about creating a the possibility to declare every citizen a potential criminal, so that Obama has the pretext to remove his political opponents by more severe means.  The man who urged his cousin Odinga to massacre his political opponents, burn down homes and Christian churches and create mayhem for months, is not a man with one shred of concern for the democratic institutions of America. Act III will see the installation of a dictatorship.  Let us pray that we live to see the final act, Obama’s downfall.

Public flogging is is a common punishment in the Muslim world

(Nov. 27, 2009)  — A Reuters report from Khartoum says, that “A 16-year-old south Sudanese girl was lashed 50 times after a judge ruled her knee-length skirt was indecent.”  This Christian teen was captured in a public market and dragged (literally, apparently) directly before a Shariah judge who imposed the sentence and watched it applied on the spot, with no parent or guardian being notified.

Only 40 lashes are given to a man caught driving drunk and likewise 40 for a woman caught wearing trousers.  Why a teen gets 50 lashes for “indecency” only Mohammed knows.  Of course, Mohammed appreciated the beauty of young girls, so perhas a girl could seem especially attractive to a devout Muslim.  I have read that one of  Mohammed’s wives was married to his son before the Prophet decided he wanted the young thing for himself.  His favorite wife of all was one he “married” when she was only nine years old.

Certainly a sixteen-year old girl can look attractive, but the Christian girl’s mother said the girl was wearing “a normal skirt and blouse” when apprehended.  I guess we should be grateful they didn’t cut her off at the knees for her perfidy.

Some try to divide Islam into good, decent folks and those hotheaded extremists who wage jihad and cut off limbs for petty crimes and stone women to death for adultery.  What I see is that whenever and wherever Muslims get the upper hand, they wield the whip of domination over their fellow human beings.

(Nov. 27, 2009) — The news out of New York State bodes ill for the survival of the American Republic.  The widespread fraud involving voting tallies the night of the Election has given way to reports of election-machine tampering via a virus, consistently anti-Hoffman biased tallies, and other such irregularities that make one thing certain:  there was no democratic election in the New York 23rd Congressional District.  There was an un-democratic selection aided and abetted by Election Officials and workers who are so sloppy with their mathematics and ethics and the observance of the law, that in truth no number in the results to-be-certified remains undoubtable.

The latest news comes from St. Lawrence County, the northernmost in the district, lying along the St. Lawrence River and the international border with Canada.  On Tuesday, Nov. 24th, the Country Board of Elections has certified election results in several precincts in which — get this — there are more votes counted for candidates than ballots cast!

Talk about a new twist on “stuffing the ballot box”!

Writing for the Gouverneur Times, Dr. Richard Hayes Philips, whom the paper describes as,

. . . one of the leading election fraud investigators in the United States.  His book on the 2004 Ohio election, Witness to a Crime: A Citizens’ Audit of an American Election, based on examination of some 30,000 photographs of actual ballots, poll books, and other election records.

explains in detail how the results certified in St. Lawrence country are mathematically impossible, even though the ytally up.  Impossible because they clearly indicate that the voting machines tallied more votes than the paper ballots which went into them.

For six election districts in St. Lawrence County (the 2nd, 4th, 6th, and 7th districts in Canton, the 14th district in Massena, and the 2nd district in Oswegatchie) negative numbers appear in the column for “blank” ballots, known in other states as “undervotes.”

Blank vote counts are ballots in which the voter did not choose any candidate in a given election and are determined by subtracting the total number of votes cast for the candidates from the number of voters who completed ballots.  The remaining number would be those voters who didn’t cast a vote for that election.

In Canton’s 7th district, the certified results show a total of 148 ballots cast. The results of those votes were counted as 88 votes for Owens, 11 votes for Scozzafava, and 80 votes for Hoffman.  The problem is that these numbers add up to 179 votes counted for the candidates, and there were only 148 ballots cast;  St. Lawrence County certified these numbers to the state as accurate with the number of ‘blank’ ballots reported as -31.

Since these results have been certified, it is evident that the Election Board has consented to fraud, and is no longer legally incupable of prosecution for use of their authority under color of law to deprive the civil rights of voters in the said districts.

This is so, because there can be no excuse in accepting that machines tallied more votes than ballots cast, unless you consent to the very fact that the machines are recording a tally which ostensibly never occurred, and thus in accepting such a tally they are certifying the candidates’ votes not as the people voted, but as the machines voted. And that is not an election, it’s a selection.  Whoever is responsible with tampering with the machines is involved in voter fraud, since they are attempting to make the vote appear differently than it would be, but the Board in certifying has committed Election Fraud, because it is giving its authority to patently erroneous results.

Dr. Philips entire article deserves reading.

In the comments on the article another noted investigator has given her opinion how such fraudulent results can be achieved. Bev Harris, founder of BlackBoxVoting.org, a “national nonpartisan nonprofit elections watchdog organization,” writes:

So one would expect that IF there was fraud in a New York election that had just converted to software-driven systems, the same “roll back the odometer” tactic might be used with the software.

That doesn’t mean there was fraud. But negative numbers do appear in the voting machine results in some locations. IF there was a rollback of the odometer method employed, the negative numbers would only appear if an insufficient number of voting transactions take place to roll it up into the positive. And that would mean that the negative number locations would only be the tip of the iceberg, in terms of the scale of the problem. Most locations would roll up into positive numbers, erasing the telltale signs.  …

And with impossible numbers, NEGATIVE numbers appearing in some NY-23 locations, it raises questions about what precise code was on the machines and memory cards in all New York locations. Technicians were visiting some — but not all — machines to put in a fix, shortly before the election. They fixed something. But not always.

We just don’t know what they fixed. And probably, we never will know. And this is precisely the problem with concealed counting: We just handed ultimate control of our elections to some technician whose name we do not even know.

You can read all of Bev Harris’ commentary in the comment section of the article itself.

St. Lawrence County’s Vote-Discovery in favor of Owens

The Post & Email will now comment on the results that the St. Lawrence County Board of Elections certified, to highlight other anomalies which point to voter fraud and which should have been the basis for the Board to call for a paper recount.

At 3:05 pm on Nov. 6, the unofficial tallies of votes for Congressional Special Election were as follows:

St. Lawrence county is indicated as having tallied the votes in 99% of the precincts.  This being the case, you’d expect the final tally to be very close to those numbers, but statistically it is not.

The certified results for the Congressional race give 13, 553 to Owens, 9,231 to Hoffman, and 1,545 to Scozzafava.  That means that between Nov. 6 and Nov. 24, election officials found 799 votes for Owens, 527 for Hoffman, and 429 for Scozzafava.

The votes found should be near to 1% of the tally.  But 1755 votes found out of a total of 24, 329 is is 7.2% of the vote!

And in a race in which Hoffman quite unexpectedly conceded on the grounds that he trailed by more than 3,000 votes, St. Lawrence County’s discovery of 273 more votes for Owens than for Hoffman meant that without that discovery Hoffman would have “lost” with 546 less votes.  But St. Lawrence county is only 1 of the 11 counties, and its voter representation was only 16.54% of the tallies in the election.  In other words, if the same rate of vote-discovery occurred elsewhere, there would be nearly 6 times the discrepancy in the vote count, for more than 3000 vote swing, enough to give Hoffman the election, fair and square.  Though one cannot make such an extrapolation, because every county has a different voter turnout, it does show that someone in St. Lawrence County did their fair-share of the job to ensure an Owens victory.

If the vote-discovery had nothing to do with human intervention, one would expect that in other races on the same ballot in the same county, that 7.2% of the vote would have also been discovered after Nov. 6th.

4,200 Votes in the NY-23 race are questionable

Let’s take a look at each county-wide race, in St. Lawrence Country, considering simply the total votes counted, and comparing this to the total votes in the Congressional race on the same ballot:

For the NY-23 Special Election: . . . . . 24, 349 votes

For the State Supreme Court race:  39, 969 votes or potentially 19,986 votes*

District Attorney: . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 17, 541 votes

For County Coroner: . . . . . . . . . . . 29, 664 votes or potentially 14,832 votes*

These are the races which all used the same 102 voting machines.  Since the entire county voted for each race you’d expect nearly identical numbers, if there were identical interest in the different races.  And while that nearly never happens, the Owen-Hoffman-Scozzafava race was surely the most followed in the national and local press.

In the race for County Coroner — a race in which you could vote for 2 candidates — the results, as tallied, were as follows:

Russell B. Lawrence III  . . . . 16,245 votes (13,090 votes from Republicans, and 3,155 from Conservatives)

June H. Wood  . . . . . . . . . . . 13,399 votes (13,399 votes from Republicans)

In this race all other candidates got only 20 votes according to the tally.  That means, if the results are to believed, that some 2,846 voters — nearly all Conservative party members — only selected one candidate, even though they could choose 2 (though perhaps only Lawrence was endorse by their party).

In the race for District Attorney, Nicole M. Douvè got more than 99.68 % of the votes — she must really be liked — or 17,485 votes, as tallied, total (14, 342 from Democrats 3,143 from the Workers Party?).

Evidently the Coroners job and the District Attorney’s job are held by different parties.

In the race for State Supreme Court Justice for the 4th Judicial district, a race in which each voter could select 2 candidates, the results, as tallied, were as follows:

Barry D. Kramer  . . . . . . 11,413 votes (9,021 votes from Democrats and 2,392 from Conservatives)

Thomas E. Mercure . . . . . 9,634 votes (6,951 votes from Republicans and 2,683 from Conservatives)

Brian S. Stewart . . . . . . . 9,520 votes (9,520 votes from Democrats)

Richard B. Meyer . . . . . . . 7,375 votes (7,385 votes from Republicans)

This means that some 499 Democratic voters, 2,259 Republicans and 293 Conservative voters failed to vote for 2 candidates, or that Stweart and Meyer were not endorsed by the Conservative party.

In the Congressional Special Election the vote tallies were as follows:

Bill  Owens . . . . . . .  13, 553 votes (12,498 from Democrats and 1,055 from the Workers Party)

Dough Hoffman . . . . . 9,231 votes (9,231 from Conservatives)

Scozzafava . . . . . . . . 1,545 votes (1,290 from Republicans and 255 from Independents)

Here is the discrepancy: if the 13,090 Republican Voters and 3,155 Conservative voters, who voted in the County Coroner race, also voted in the Congressional Race, one should find some 16,245 votes for Owen’s opponents in the Congressional race.  But you don’t.  You have only 10,776 votes.  Some 5,478 votes disappeared. Even if one assumed that Worker’s party members voted in the Coroner’s race under Republican or Conservative party affiliations, that would still be some 4,423 votes missing.

Did all these voters cross over and vote Democratic?

Alternatively, considering that the Congressional race had apparently 9,517 more voters voting than the County Coroner’s race, one must assume that either 2,314 Democrats voted Republican in the Coroner’s race, or that all those  4,423 Republicans/Conservatives/Independents abstained from voting in the Congressional Race.  In the first case you still have 3,155 missing votes (2,109 votes if Worker’s party voters crossed lines in the Coroners race).

Since the beloved D.A. got 14,342 Democratic voters and 3,143 Workers Party votes, if one assumes no party cross overs in that race, then at least 789 Democrats and 2,088 Workers Party members did not vote in the congressional race. If there were cross overs, then these 2,878 voters were Conservatives, Independents and Republicans cross overs.

Is it reasonable to assume that there were those who voted Democrat for D.A., and Democrat for the U.S. House, but who were registered Republicans, Conservatives or Independents? No, it is not. You would have to assume that they are Scozzafava liberal Republicans of some kind, but they did not vote for her in the election.

Finally, when one compares the results of both races in which all parties could ostensibly vote, the Congressional had 4,363 more votes cast than the Supreme Court race.  But Owens got 4,033 more votes than the Democratic candidates in that other race.  Where did these come from?  Are we to believe that the only individuals who did not vote in the Supreme Court Justice race were Owen’s supporters? That is just not credible. Statistics would say that the difference in votes between the races would be distributed similarly to the overall results of the Congressional election, 60-40% for Owens/Hoffman.  Not 90% for Owens alone.

Since Hoffman “lost” the election by little more than 3,200 votes, discrepancies of these sizes (2-5k) are disturbing. It appears that in the Congressional race some 2,200 Republican/Conservative votes disappeared, and at least an additional 2,000 Democratic votes appeared.  That’s a discrepancy of 4,200 votes in total, 1,000 votes more than the number by which Hoffman is said to have lost the race.  And this in only one county!

However, until one knows more about the election rules in NY, a more certain conclusion cannot be had.


* In these races a voter could select 2 candidates; but whether they did or not is not indicated in the vote tallies on line. (In the previous edition of this report, I missed that notation in the online results.)

(Nov. 26, 2009) — The saga of the conspiracy to fake data to promote Agenda 21, the radical socialist attack on Western Civilization, continues to unfold, with a call, now, from a leading radical, pro-climate-changer, that those involved in the conspiracy resign.

George Monbiot’s call for resignations was published yesterday in the Guardian.  In that article he wrote the follow scathing attack on Dr. Jones and the others exposed for fraud when their emails were leaked by Russian hackers:

see link for license information

George Monbiot

When it comes to his handling of Freedom of Information requests, Professor Jones might struggle even to use a technical defence. If you take the wording literally, in one case he appears to be suggesting that emails subject to a request be deleted, which means that he seems to be advocating potentially criminal activity. Even if no other message had been hacked, this would be sufficient to ensure his resignation as head of the unit.

I feel desperately sorry for him: he must be walking through hell. But there is no helping it; he has to go, and the longer he leaves it, the worse it will get. He has a few days left in which to make an honourable exit. Otherwise, like the former Speaker of the House of Commons, Michael Martin, he will linger on until his remaining credibility vanishes, inflicting continuing damage to climate science.

Some people say that I am romanticising science, that it is never as open and honest as the Popperian ideal. Perhaps. But I know that opaqueness and secrecy are the enemies of science. There is a word for the apparent repeated attempts to prevent disclosure revealed in these emails: unscientific.

Prior to this, Monbiot excerpted a very damning statement by Dr. Jones, whose resignation he is calling for:

One of the most damaging emails was sent by the head of the climatic research unit, Phil Jones. He wrote “I can’t see either of these papers being in the next IPCC report. Kevin and I will keep them out somehow – even if we have to redefine what the peer-review literature is!

Such is the public interest in understanding the conspiracy that there is already a website which publishes all the emails, the most incriminating of which, as regards charges of conspiracy to commit fraud, you can read on line here:

Phil Jones wrote:
>> Mike,
> Can you delete any emails you may have had with Keith re AR4?
> Keith will do likewise. He’s not in at the moment – minor family crisis.
> Can you also email Gene and get him to do the same? I don’t
> have his new email address.
> We will be getting Caspar to do likewise.
> I see that CA claim they discovered the 1945 problem in the Nature
> paper!!
> Cheers
> Phil

Monbiot is outraged that his fake religion has been shown for what it is: fake science.  His outrage is so palpable that he felt obligated to mock a fake email, rather than address, first, the really embarrassing, real ones. But he refuses to admit that the forces of nature are greater than any man can harness or effect at his present level of technological advancement.  If CO2 levels fluctuated wildly before the modern period, then there is no reason to believe that the industrial revolution had anything to do with it.

That’s, alas, the common sense Monbiot and his fellow climatology gurus have forgotten.
