Alexander Dugin: The Fourth Political Theory & Western Liberalism

For some reason this gentleman's name caught my eye? Where had I seen it before? Possibly Saker's place? I'm not sure? No matter! Where ever it was, I saw the name, recalled it and thought what the heck, give it a listen. So glad I did! This fellow is quite interesting... really!
 Thanks to Henrik at Red Ice, for conducting this brilliant interview for us all to enjoy.
It really provided me with much food for thought. And if anyone else can provide me with some insights or direct me towards additional interviews with him I would just love to listen to more!

"Aleksandr Dugin is one of the best-known writers and political commentators in post-Soviet Russia. In addition to the many books he has authored on political, philosophical and spiritual topics, he currently serves on the staff of Moscow State University, and is the intellectual leader of the Eurasia Movement. For more than a decade, he has also been an advisor to Vladimir Putin and others in the Kremlin on geopolitical matters, being a vocal advocate of a return of Russian power to the global stage, to act as a counterweight to American domination. Dugin joins us to speak about the subject of his book, The Fourth Political Theory. He begins with an overview of this political vision, one that is a fundamental criticism of liberalism in all forms, but does not fall into communism, nationalism or fascism. Dugin explains the need for critically thinking people in the world to imagine an alternative to liberalism, and how this very confusing and destructive ideology is truly a totalitarian way of thinking. We consider the key liberalist issues as being tests to see how far people are willing to go to completely give up traditional values, and we look at the globalist capital system that is exacerbating the identity crisis of the west. In the second half, Dugin details the fine points of Eurasianism, a vision of world history based on geopolitics and the virility of diverse civilizations. We look at Russia’s place amongst the global elite, her unwavering sovereignty that will ultimately resist globalization, and a deeply rooted cultural dimension that cannot be divided from Europe. Dugin speaks of the US’s constant meddling and manufacturing of conflicts between Russia and Europe, and we discuss the importance of creating a strong European cooperative to balance the liberalist power monopoly. In conclusion, Dugin notes his contributions to Putin’s current ideology and the rising influence of the Forth Political Theory in liberating Russia from the globalist grip"

 The reality of back to back brutal winters in the Atlantic/Great Lakes area

The reality of back to back brutal winters in the Atlantic/Great Lakes area

Following up on yesterday's post. Where hopefully you all read about yet another AGW lie,  biting the dust?   AGW/Global Warming DOES NOT CAUSE EXTREME WINTERS!

That lie that died, warming = cooling, was the one created to explain away the ever cooling temperatures and extremely frigid winters that have occurred back to back in North America. Extending down to Mexico, parts of the UK. Spain. Lebanon. Syria. And many, many other areas of the globe. Just the fact that the Atlantic ocean froze up to the extent it did is indicative of the extreme cold temperatures, due to the fact that salt water freezes at lower temps.

Ocean water freezes just like freshwater, but at lower temperatures. Fresh water freezes at 32 degrees Fahrenheit but seawater freezes at about 28.4 degrees Fahrenheit , because of the salt in it.
The extreme cold, this year, in the Atlantic resulted in icebergs washing up on the shores of the Atlantic
Huge icebergs the size of boulders have been washing up on the shores of Cape Cod after one of the bitterest winters in living memory. 
Months of frozen temperatures have created huge sheets of ice up and down the coastline and now the temperatures have warmed slightly they are breaking up and washing ashore.
In Wellfleet, on the Massachusetts coast, the ice made the beach look more like an arctic wasteland than the soon-to-be summer playground of the rich and famous of the East Coast.

As you know, yesterday, an Air Canada plane made a hard landing in heavy snow near Halifax
The fact the Atlantic froze enough for slushee waves and icebergs also tells us all, as posted two weeks ago, the ocean definitely isn't "hiding the warming'  Study Finds Earth’s Ocean Abyss Has NOT Warmed- Not Warmed!

I had mentioned in the comment section of  yesterday's post, we ventured out to one of the  Great lakes (Lake Erie)  last week end. There was ice as far out as one could see. No waves hitting the sandy beaches. Just ice. Not moving. No shifting. No crackling indicating the ice was weakening. Just icy cold winds and ice, ice, ice....

The Great Lakes are home to many birds. Hundreds of thousands of birds. Winter last year and this year took a terrible toll on the many beautiful ducks and other water fowl- And I do love birds.

From 2015- Ducks and waterfowl are starving to death

Duck being treated at Hobbitstee Wildlife Refuge, in southwestern Ontario.
With the Great Lakes serving as the winter home and migratory route for millions of sea birds and waterfowl, it’s unknown how many birds will have perished during the harsh winter, some experts say the death toll on Lake Erie alone could be in the tens of thousands.
Across the border, Tim Jasinski runs the Lake Erie Nature and Science Center, the cold weather has it at capacity as well.


From 2014- Thousands of dead water fowl appearing all over the Great Lakes region

More here
Biologists say carcasses began piling up by the hundreds in early January after the plunging temperatures started icing over nearly the entire Great Lakes, preventing the ducks from getting to the minnows that are their main source of food. Necropsies on dozens of birds have confirmed the cause: starvation.
“All have empty stomachs. They’re half the weight they should be,” said Connie Adams, a biologist in the state Department of Environmental Conservation’s Buffalo office who has personally seen 950 dead birds.
“This is unprecedented. Biologists who’ve worked here for 35 years have never seen anything like this,” she said. “We’ve seen a decline in tens of thousands in our weekly waterfowl counts.”
 It’s a phenomenon that has been seen elsewhere along the Great Lakes, with news reports of diving ducks and other waterfowl turning up dead by the hundreds along the southern part of Lake Michigan. They’ve also been found in Lake St. Clair between Lakes Erie and Huron.
 These many thousands and thousands of waterfowl would have survived had any actual warming been taking place- They would have had plenty to eat. Instead it's been cold and colder and for two consecutive winters these birds have been dying en masse. It was noticeable last year in the reduced duck and geese population that I see. I expect this year to be worse still.

Delayed Seaway Opening

The St Lawrence Seaway System joins the Great Lakes to the Atlantic Ocean- It is the H2O highway.
This year. 2015. The Seaway has delayed the opening of the H2O Highway (Welland Canal) until April 02/2015. This is the first April opening since 1997. Even last year despite the ice build up on the Great Lakes the opening was delayed until later in March. But this year the opening is  later still
St. Lawrence Seaway Management Corp. has delayed the opening of the canal due to the large amount of ice in the seaway system and surrounding waterways.
“It’s quite rare that we delay the opening,” seaway company spokesman Andrew Bogora said of the event that typically takes place in the third or fourth week of March.
While the start of the navigation season was delayed by a few days in March 2014 due to cold weather conditions, the seaway hasn’t been forced to push the launch back to April since 1997, he said.
This year, ships will begin transiting the canal April 2
 It will be interesting to see if April 02/15 is a go? Because the ice sure has not been melting


The icebreakers are out on the east coast- Opening up the Atlantic Ocean entrance to the Seaway- If they can get any ships through all that ice, it will amazing! If the opening is a go the canal will see limited shipping initially.

And what about wine country 2015?

Ah, yes. Wine country. Like last year the damage looks to be extensive. And as the cold continues.... who knows how the vines will fare?
Willwerth's team publishes "Vine Alert" which compiles statistics from growers who survey their vines and estimate how much damage there's been. Some of the readings look pretty bleak. A reading taken on Feb. 23 indicated a 19 per cent bud survival for Cabernet Sauvignon in Creek Shores.
But by March 3, things were looking a bit better. The Cab grapes in Creek Shores had a 43 per cent survival reading. 
The real survival rate for this year's crop is probably somewhere in between, said Willwerth. Different varieties, regions and wineries will have been impacted differently.
"We are still sampling and getting better assessments," he said. "Our assessments improve as we collect more data and get closer to spring, too. It's a biological system and there is inherent variability."

All of the research has been going right into the region's attempts to grow wine. Still, Willwerth said he wouldn't wish a cold winter on the industry in real life. He'd rather test his theories in his laboratory freezer.
"I'd rather have it as an experiment," he said.
 And the tender fruit crops
"On the tender-fruit side, I am expecting almost complete wipeout (areas) on the west-end for peaches, apricots and plums."
Brewster and others caution that fruit vine and tree samples are being collected now and the extent of the damage is too early to assess
Let's hope the damage is not as bad as initial assessment

Wine Country Cold Damage 2014

Bottom line: 

If AGW, as has been sold, was anywhere near truth or reality,  none of what I have posted above would be happening. The  Great Lakes would not be freezing. Massive bird deaths would not be happening. Ice boulders would not be washing up on the Atlantic coast. The H20 Highway would be opening and the tender fruit growers and wine industry would not be looking at yet another year of crop losses-  Massive road damage. Water main breaks. Sink holes. People going without water in their homes due to water main breaks. None of that would be occurring. Yet, it is.

The climate changes, always. But the AGW theory of excess man caused carbon was supposed to result in warming, and moderation of temps- That is not the case at all

This was after all the first year the snow was so deep, no melt or 'january thaw', I put on snowshoes to get out to my composter which was buried in snow as high as my composter is tall

AGW/Global Warming DOES NOT CAUSE EXTREME WINTERS!

Another AGW fabrication bites the dust. Hey, hey, hey!

Recall last year and the year before and the year before that one, the cultish adherents of AGW started spinning that warming = cooling.  Which made zero sense! 
So imagine my absolute non surprise this chilly, below normal temperature, first week of spring gone and done morning, to read this news?

Global Warming/AGW DOES NOT CAUSE extreme winters

Cold snaps like the ones that hit the eastern United States in the past winters are not a consequence of  (global warming AGW) climate change. Scientists at ETH Zurich and the California Institute of Technology have shown that global warming actually tends to reduce temperature variability
 Repeated cold snaps led to temperatures far below freezing across the eastern (central) United States (and Canada & parts of Europe etc...) in the past two winters. Parts of the Niagara Falls froze, and ice floes formed on Lake Michigan. Pictures of icy, snow-covered cities made their way around the world, raising the question of whether (Global warming/AGW) climate change could be responsible for these extreme events.

Temperature range will decrease

Scientists at ETH Zurich and at the California Institute of Technology, led by Tapio Schneider, professor of climate dynamics at ETH Zurich, have come to a different conclusion. They used climate simulations and theoretical arguments to show that in most places, the range of temperature fluctuations will decrease as the climate warms. So not only will cold snaps become rarer simply because the climate is warming. Additionally, their frequency will be reduced because fluctuations about the warming mean temperature also  become smaller, the scientists wrote in the latest issue of the Journal of Climate.
Temperature fluctuations or extremes should lessen. And cold snaps will become more rare because of global temperature equalization according to AGW/Global warming theory. That is not what is happening, at all!

Study: Global warming not to blame for fierce winter

As you will read the IPCC is completely on board and aware of this information!

Using a highly simplified climate model, they examined various climate scenarios to verify their theory. It showed that the temperature variability in mid-latitudes decreases as the temperature difference between the poles and the equator diminishes.
Climate model simulations by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) showed similar results: as the climate warms, temperature differences in mid-latitudes decrease, and so does temperature variability, especially in winter.
 And yet, the past few years have been getting colder and colder with the last two winters being particularly brutal here in Canada and the US and further south still.  Right now our temps are still well below normal!

Global warming doesn’t cause extreme winters, study says
 Global warming doesn’t cause extreme winters, a study has found—instead it tends to re­duce tem­per­a­ture vari­abil­ity.

That a warming trend doesn’t cause cold snaps might seem obvious, but it had been a question. Tem­per­a­tures plunged far be­low freez­ing across the east­ern Un­ited States in the past two win­ters. Parts of the Ni­ag­a­ra Falls froze, and ice floes formed on Lake Mich­i­gan. Some theories pointed to global warming as a culprit.

 Us­ing a highly sim­pli­fied cli­mate mod­el, they said, they ex­am­ined var­i­ous cli­mate sce­nar­i­os to ver­i­fy their the­o­ry. Cli­mate mod­el sim­ula­t­ions by the Intergo­vernmental Pan­el on Cli­mate Change showed si­m­i­lar re­sults, they said: as the cli­mate warms, tem­per­a­ture dif­fer­ences in mid-latitudes de­crease. So does tem­per­a­ture vari­abil­ity, es­pe­cially in win­ter.

 In conclusion AGW or Global Warming should make the winters warmer! That is absolutely not happening- I can attest to this fact because millions of us have to live through these longer colder without respite winters. Crops are affected. Water mains bursting, water leaking, road damage, birds dying- shore erosion, sink holes etc- The reality doesn't fit the fiction.

Today an Air Canada jet made a hard landing, in the snow- At the end of March/2015


The Halifax region was under a snowfall warning, with an Environment Canada alert saying, "Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow.
The aircraft skidded for a long time before coming to a stop, said Hall, who is retired and lives in Mount Uniake, N.S.
“We were sliding along on our belly,” he said.
Hall said the aircraft hit so hard, the landing gear and at least one of the engines was ripped from the plane.
“I was looking out and I saw the landing gear go and I saw an engine go,” said Hall.
 Hall said passengers left the plane immediately but they were left standing on the tarmac for more than an hour as they were lashed by wind-whipped snow.

It appears in poor visibility conditions, thanks to heavy snow which should not be happening if the planet was warming per AGW - the plane hit a power line, did a hard landing and slid for a good while, falling to pieces in the process

Monsanto Spin Doctor won't drink 'safe' Monsanto Round-Up- EDC's & Chemical Manipulation of Humanity

Extrait : Bientôt dans vos assiettes... - Interview de Patrick Moore



In it, Dr. Patrick Moore tells the host that glyphosate, an active ingredient in Roundup that was recently linked to cancer by the World Health Organization, is not linked to Argentina's increasing cancer rate.
“You can drink a whole quart of it and it won’t hurt you,” says Moore.
“You want to drink some?” asks the host. “We have some here.”
“I’d be happy to, actually,” replies Moore. “Not really. But I know it wouldn’t hurt me.”
“If you say so, I have some,” says the interviewer.
“I’m not stupid,” says Moore.
“So, it’s dangerous?” says the interviewer.
Moore then says Roundup is so safe that when “people try to commit suicide” by drinking it, they “fail regularly.”
“Tell the truth, it’s dangerous,” says the host.
“It’s not dangerous to humans,” Moore replies. “No, it’s not.”
“So, are you ready to drink one glass?” the interviewer says.
“No, I’m not an idiot,” Moore says.
"Interview me about golden rice, that's what I'm talking about. Otherwise the interview is finished. You're a complete jerk." 

  Moore was an early member of Greenpeace (Greenpeace isn't working to fight anything actually affecting the environment) I don't believe their spin at all! They are just another corporate servant with their own business interests. Greenpeace is just another No Good Organization.

This is, of course, linked to that news item I had up the other day!

Ukraine: Arrested Officials to be freed- Kolomoisky/Poroshenko deal?

Recall that "showy" arrest from the other day?

Two Additional Top Ukrainiain Officials Arrested- in showy fashion
 The one that looked completely staged? 
Ok did anyone beside me think the whole arrest thing looked staged
The two men arrested were virtually emotionless- weird
Reply
 I wasn't alone in noticing the faked feeling of the entire incident. And why would I be? There are some savvy folks hanging around, for sure!

WizOzMarch 25, 2015 at 8:51 PM
I do think that it WAS staged. 
What part seemed odd to you, I couldn't put my figure on why it was not right

The arrest, well I'm under the impression that everything coming out there is staged just like isis. Hollyweird anyone?
All politics in all western controlled countries is theatre. One always has to ask the question, "why am I seeing this; why am I reading this? The camera was propositioned to film the arresting officers. My guess it was preplanned if not rehearsed!

 Check out the latest from gettin' tough on corruption Kiev!

 Former head of Ukraine State Emergency Service Bochkovsky may be released on Saturday

 "The Kyiv Pechersky District Court has turned down the Interior Ministry's request for the arrest of former head of the Ukrainian State Emergency Service Serhiy Bochkovsky"
 Why stage the arrest other then to deflect from whatever really went on between Poroshenko and Kolomoisky?  Kolomoisky steps down from his appointed leadership. What did he get in exchange? Recall he removed documents from the state oil offices? What were the documents he removed? Were they the same documents Poroshenko signed in the office the night he 'fired' Kolomoisky

And speaking of Kolomoisky?

 Kolomoisky says Ukrnafta dispute was publicity stunt
 
The situation concerning crude oil producer Ukrnafta will be settled judicially, former Dnipropetrovsk regional governor Ihor Kolomoisky has said.
Obviously Kolomoisky got what he wanted. Poroshenko made it happen. The courts will rubber stamp it.

If you are unfamiliar with Kolomoisky 's show of force?

Putin: Provocations against Russia Possible in 2016

InSerbia

Speaking at a board meeting of the federal security service FSB on Thursday he demanded quashing such destabilization attempts.



“There have been continued attempts by Western secret services for using non-governmental organizations and politicized associations for their purposes first and foremost for discrediting the authorities and destabilizing the internal situation in Russia,” Putin said. He warned there were plans for such actions during the forthcoming election campaigns of 2016 and 2018.
“I have said more than once and I can say once again: we are prepared for a dialogue with the opposition, we will maintain relations of partnership with civil society in the broadest sense. We invariably turn an attentive ear to those who meaningfully criticize the authorities at any level for certain actions or for inactivity. Such a dialogue and partnership are always useful and absolutely necessary in any country, including ours,” Putin said. At the same time he said that “it makes no sense to enter into discussions with those who act on orders from abroad, in the interests of another country or other countries, and not their own.”
“We will keep focus on the existence of foreign sources of financing non-governmental organizations and checking the conformity of their officially proclaimed goals with their practical work. Any violations must be blocked,” Putin said.

Yemen: GCC bombing aided by US- Operation Storm of Resolve- Denying China?

A few interesting news items
WASHINGTON: President Obama has authorized U.S. logistical and intelligence support for Saudi Arabia as it launches airstrikes on Houthi rebels in Yemen.

Saudi Arabia began the airstrikes Wednesday night. The Houthi rebels reported firing anti-aircraft missiles as jets struck a military base in Yemen's capital. The Saudi government says nine other countries have joined its military operation but that the U.S. is not among them.

In a statement Wednesday night, a White House official says the U.S. is coordinating U.S. military and intelligence support with Saudi Arabia. National Security Council spokeswoman Bernadette Meehan says the U.S. isn't taking direct military action in Yemen but did consult with the Saudis.

Saudi Arabia has 150,000 troops for Yemen operation-Arabiya TV
Saudi Arabia is contributing 100 warplanes and 150,000 soldiers to the military operation in Yemen, al-Arabiya television reported on Thursday.

Planes from Egypt, Morocco, Jordan, Sudan, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar and Bahrain are also taking part in the operation, it said. Egypt, Pakistan, Jordan and Sudan are ready to participate in a ground offensive, the broadcaster said

China a big buyer of Yemen oil as export risks rise
Oil supplies in Yemen had already been disrupted by conflict.

Yemeni oil flows through the Marib pipeline, its main export route, at a rate of around 70,000 barrels per day (bpd). Before a series of attacks by tribesmen began against it three years ago, the pipeline carried around 110,000 barrels per day to Ras Isa, an export terminal on the Red Sea. Tribal conflicts and al Qaeda insurgency are disrupting oil and gas exports in other parts of the economy.

Saudi Arabia has warned foreign ships from approaching Yemeni ports which could cut the Middle East producer's crude exports.

China's crude imports from Yemen in the first two months this year were 4.5 mln bbls, up 315 per cent from the same period a year ago.
Isn't that interesting that as the Houthis filled the void left by the quitter government- China increased their crude imports from Yemem by 315 percent?
Are interested parties attempting to deny China access to crude? It sure looks that way!
