1. Israel and Greece forge new alliance
2. Ezra weighs in on the shooting of the Russian jet
(The only thing I would add is the regular incursions into Greek space Turkish military jets make regularly)
3. I often post the video I made a few years ago about April 28th 2009 and the Obama jet overflying Manhattan at very low altitude tailed by an F14 as if it was to cause a panic. Donald Trump also mentioned another story that all of us knew on the 11th of Sept. 2001 and somehow forgot and somehow we cannot find anywhere. But he managed to dig up one article.
Egypt plans to buy large amounts of modern and advanced weapons from Russia, the Russian defence ministry said on Wednesday.
Russian Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu ordered federal service for military-technical cooperation to rapidly respond to an Egyptian request to buy armaments, Russian Interfax agency reported.
It’s not yet known what type of weapons Egypt plans to buy.
Shoigu’s announcement comes after a two-day visit to Egypt, where he met Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi on Tuesday in Cairo. The meeting was attended by the Egyptian defence minister, the Russian deputy defence minister, and the Russian ambassador to Cairo.
During his meeting with El-Sisi, the Russian defence minister said Russia appreciates Egypt’s role in achieving security and stability in the region, according to a statement released by the Egyptian presidency.
He also affirmed that Russia is keen to continue cooperation with Egypt in all areas, especially in the military field, highlighting the importance of unified efforts by the international community in combating terrorism.
(Hey Obama. How is that plan to move the US into the Islamic orbit working out for you?)
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration head is refusing to hand over internal documents to a Republican lawmaker who is accusing federal scientists of doctoring the data to fit President Obama’s global warming agenda.
NOAA’s Commerce Secretary Penny Pritzker responded to a claim from House Science Committee Chairman Lamar Smith (R-TX) who says they “rushed to publication” their “peer-reviewed” journal last June even as some NOAA scientists objected, reports The Washington Post.
Smith wants NOAA to hand over internal documents and e-mails he believes will prove the global temperatures were manipulated. He threatened subpoena if they refuse.
Defiantly, Pritzker stated that NOAA staff will not bow to “political interference.” Adding to the resistance was administrator Kathryn Sullivan who wrote, “I have not or will not allow anyone to manipulate the science or coerce the scientists who work for me.”

Lysenkoism was “politically correct” (a term invented by Lenin) because it was consistent with certain broader Marxist doctrines. Marxists wanted to believe that heredity had a limited role even among humans, and that human characteristics changed by living under socialism would be inherited by subsequent generations of humans. Thus would be created the selfless new Soviet man.
Also Lysenko himself arose from a peasant background and developed his theories from practical applications rather than controlled scientific experiments. This fit the Marxist propaganda of the time holding that brilliant industrial innovations would arise from the working classes through practical applications. Lysenko’s theories also seemed to address in a quick and timely manner the widespread Soviet famines of the time arising from the forced collectivization of agriculture, rather than the much slower changes from scientific experimentation and genetic heredity.
(For a fantastic example of Lysenkoism and the associated scientific frauds, watch this documentary on one Russian science that did brilliant work in evolutionary biology in Russia by specifically using Darwin’s theories at great risk to his life and liberty)
(Read intro and watch this electrifying video over at Gates of Vienna)
[The above speech contains two fascinating elements to me. The first is how out of the gates he talks about an aspect of the problem in the West being the loss of masculinity. I have discussed this myself except I look at it from the other side. The cultural consequences of feminization leading to a defenseless culture against the rampaging hordes of those who know no feminine aspects in one sense. (Yes, I will be soundly corrected by Perfect Child for this in the comments I know) And secondly, it seems to me that out cultures are following certain stages thanks to the media-gvernment war on reality and totalitarianism at the informational level. The stage I estimate will need to come at just the right time will be the point at which a leader will appear who can give permission to the public to actually do what needs doing. The speaker in that video strikes me very much as the kind of fellow who can give that permission]
