CFP Identifies Lockerbie Secret Doc

Last year, the SCCRC granted the man convicted of the Lockerbie bombing a second appeal on the basis that his conviction may have been unsafe. Among the grounds justifying the decision, the Committee stated that the Crown had not given the defense access to a secret document which may be vital to establish the innocence of Megrahi.

The Westminster Government, not the Lord Advocate, has imposed a Public Interest Immunity certificate in order to prevent the defense to see the very document which justifies the second appeal in the first place.

Climatologist Dr. Roy Spencer: Sacrifices to the Climate Gods - Beware Lieberman-Warner

Excerpt: Now, the Senate is preparing to debate the Lieberman-Warner Climate Security Act, which aims to limit carbon-dioxide emissions in the belief that more carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is disrupting the Earth’s climate and ecosystems. Since we now have the scientific method, we rely on computer models to predict these future catastrophes rather than on our fears and prejudices.

New Electronics Tax Won’t Help Recycling

The McGuinty government has been trying to sneak through another new tax under the noses of unsuspecting Ontario consumers. The government ordered Waste Diversion Ontario to create a plan to deal with electronics waste starting with computers, printers, monitors and fax machines. The plan creates a new unelected and unaccountable organization - Ontario Electronic Stewardship - to set the new tax rates to be imposed on manufacturers and assemblers. When the companies mark up the tax and pass it along starting early in 2009, consumers will be on the hook for over $104 million in new costs for a tax that will do little to increase recycling.

Non-Solutions to Non-Problems

A desperate push is underway to enact the Climate Security Act sponsored by Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CN) and Sen. John Warner (R-VA). It would impose cap-and-trade mandates on anything that generates carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions and that pretty much includes everything involving energy use, including backyard barbequing.

Knife crime ignored while Toronto goes after legal gun owners

A week ago, Britain’s second most senior judge called for tougher sentences for knife crimes including that of simply carrying a dangerous blade. Sir Igor Judge said that crimes involving the use of knives were reaching “epidemic proportions” in Britain and that attacks where knives were the weapon of choice “have recently escalated”. According to figures from the Home Office for 2006, of 1,226 young people (under the age of 18) that were found guilty of carrying a knife, only 72 of them served any jail time.

It’s the Communism, Stupid

Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama tried to deflect a question about his relationship with terrorist Bill Ayers by saying that he “engaged in detestable acts 40 years ago when I was 8 years old” and that he was now a professor and a neighbor. The real issue is whether Obama shares Ayers’ communist views. Obama admitted to exchanging ideas with Ayers on an irregular basis but did not say what those ideas were. But we know that Ayers, rather than just being a 1960s “radical,” was a member of a Marxist-Leninist communist group.

Armed men torch newspapers

The charred remains of the delivery truck ambushed while carrying The Zimbabwean on sunday - torched on sat night by gunmen toting AK-47s.  The driver Christmas Ramabulana.BY STAFF REPORTERS, The Zimbabwean

For South African driver, Christmas Ramabulana, the weekly journey to Harare to deliver The Zimbabwean is normally an exercise in patient endurance.

And then there is the pot-hole ridden road northwards for 550kms. Week after week.
