America Blocked a Massive Solar Project in India*

America Blocked a Massive Solar Project in India*

India should sue the U.S. megabucks for applying the NWO TPP before it comes into law…

Solar power sees unprecedented boom in the United States – solar power grew by 6.2 gigawatts in 2014; and 1 million American homes have solar panels as of February 2016. However, the United States dragged India to the World Trade Organization claiming that India’s efforts to boost local production of solar cells and solar modules violated WTO rules.

Just recently, a WTO panel has ruled that the domestic content requirement (DCR) imposed under India’s National Solar Mission (NSM), is inconsistent with its archaic treaty obligations under the global trading regime. The requirement in question mandates a percentage of components to be sourced locally, to boost home-grown production of solar cells and solar modules.

Though India argued that NSM helps the country meet its climate commitments under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), the WTO rejected the argument. They stated that domestic policies seen as violating WTO rules, cannot be justified on the basis that they fulfil UNFCCC or other international climate commitments. Like seriously?

Reuters reported that the U.S. Trade Representative’s office called the ruling “a significant victory that would hasten the spread of solar energy across the world and support clean-energy jobs in the United States.” Dan Whitten, vice president of communications for the Solar Energy Industries Association, told PV-Tech:

“The WTO dispute settlement panel’s decision will clear the way for significant and rapid deployment of solar energy in India and can create jobs at home. This decision helps us bring clean energy to the people of India, as that nation’s demand for electricity rapidly grows. We look forward to working with our solar industry colleagues in India to help grow the solar supply in both our markets and around the world.”

Well, Mr Whitten DCR does allow India to provide itself with clean energy – and as Gristnotes, “potentially with fewer emissions, as domestically produced solar panels don’t have to be shipped in from overseas.”

By putting pressure on India’s solar program, and by hiding behind the biased WTO agreements, the United States wants to boost its solar exports to India, which it argues have fallen by 90% from 2011, when India imposed the rules. Claiming that India was unfairly restricting access to American suppliers, U.S. trade representative Michael Froman justified the perverse move in February 2014: “These domestic content requirements discriminate against U.S. exports by requiring solar power developers to use India- manufactured equipment instead of US equipment. These unfair requirements are against WTO rules, and we are standing up today for the rights of American workers and businesses.”

Really?

Nearly half of the American states have renewable energy programs that include “buy-local” rules that create local green jobs, and bring new solar entrepreneurs to the economy. Why must a developing country pay penalties for the same tools that a developed country uses to foster, nurture, and grow new industries? Why get penalized for cultivating domestic renewable energy firms that promote strong climate policies; and push toward 100% clean energy?

The truth is: If the local content requirement was removed from India’s national solar program, it would open up an opportunity for foreign companies to step in.

For the Uninitiated:

The world’s first entirely solar-powered airport – made of more than 46,000 solar panels arrayed, which produce 48,000 units of energy per day; saving 300,000 tons worth of carbon emissions equivalent of planting three million trees, or not driving 750 million miles – is located in India. The world’s largest 750 MW solar power station is coming up in India, and is set to start generating clean energy by March 2017.

Currently, India imports three quarters of its energy needs. With the Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission, India aimed to deploy 20,000 MW of grid connected solar power by 2022 – more than the current solar capacity of the world’s top five solar-producing countries combined.  This deployment was in order to reduce the cost of solar power generation in the country, making India a global leader in solar energy.

In January 2015, after U.S. President Barack Obama met Prime Minister Narendra Modi at India’s 66th Republic Day celebrations, the White Office released a statement which seemed to indicate support for that goal. The statement recognized that “global climate change is a profound threat to humanity and to the imperatives of sustainable development, growth and the eradication of poverty.”

The United States intends to support India’s goal by enhancing cooperation on clean energy and climate change, to include: Expanding Partnership to Advance Clean Energy Research; Expanding Partnership to Advance Clean Energy Deployment; Accelerating Clean Energy Finance; Launching Air Quality Cooperation; Initiating Climate Resilience Tool Development; and Demonstrating Clean Energy and Climate Initiatives on the Ground.”

Reports indicate that India will prefer an appeal to the appellate body, as well as explore the option of filing a counter complaint against the U.S. While the WTO ruling is not final, the ruling is definitely a slap in the face of climate cooperation.

Syrian Army Storms the Palmyra Castle*

Palmyra, is an ancient semitic city, on the old silk road..It’s interesting to note, that the Jews erected a massive Temple to the Jewish God Baal.

Baʿal (bet-ayin-lamedh) is a Semitic word signifying “The Lord, master, owner (male), keeper, husband”, which became the usual designation of the great weather-god of the Western Semites.[4] Cognates include Standard Hebrew (Bet-Ayin-Lamed); בַּעַל / בָּעַל, Báʿal (Hebrew word #1166 in Strong’s Concordance), Akkadian Bēl and Arabic بعل. In Hebrew, the word ba’al means “husband” or “owner”, and is related to a verb meaning to take possession of, for a man, to consummate a marriage. The word “ba’al” is also used in many Hebrew phrases, denoting both concrete ownership as well as possession of different qualities in one’s personality http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palmyra

Minutes ago in the eastern countryside of the Homs Governorate, the Syrian Arab Army’s “Tiger Forces” – in close coordination with the 67th Brigade of the 18th Tank Division, Liwaa Imam Al-‘Ali, and the Desert Hawks Brigade – launched a powerful assault on the Palmyra Castle (Qal’at Tadmur) that is currently under the control of the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS).

According to a military source at the T-4 Military Airport in east Homs, the Syrian Armed Forces are storming the western perimeter of this ancient fortress after launching thermobaric TOW missiles to weaken ISIS’ front-line defences. The thermobaric TOW missiles used by the Syrian Armed Forces are specifically used at the Palmyra front because they cause little-to-no damage to the buildings and ancient sites that are filled with ISIS terrorists.

If the Syrian Armed Forces are able to seize the Palmyra Castle, they will be in full control Jabal Qassoun; this mountaintop overlooks the western district of Palmyra and gives the government forces a geographic advantage near the Palmyra National Hospital.

The Fall of Palmyra

The ISIS drive on the ancient city of Palmyra has a special significance, according to documents seized on May 16, 2015 by Syrian Special Forces units in a near dawn attack on al Mayadin, along the Euphrates River.

The al Mayadin attack, simultaneous to an American attack only a few miles further north along the Euphrates, brought both nations a trove of vital intelligence.  Documents found on a laptop used by a top ISIS commander showed direct communications via “social networks” with Israel, but that isn’t all that surprising nor is it what is of real significance.  The message received from Israel had several startling elements:

  • Orders for the ISIS drive that took Palmyra came from Israel but also reference “the freemasons,” a group whose historical origins are tied to the Knights Templars, a religious and military organization believed to have discovered the First Temple of Solomon in Jerusalem and to have looted its gold and artifacts.
  • The document orders ISIS to find and destroy the Second Temple of Solomon to be found in Palmyra, long the subject of “fringe” archaeology, and thought to be a mythological site built by superhuman beings or even extraterrestrials.
  • The document goes further, indicating that Israel will destroy the al Aqsa Mosque, the third holiest site in Islam that has been under attack by Israeli settlers in recent weeks.The ISIS drive on Palmyra, a UNESCO World Heritage site and an incomparable archeological treasure was carefully coordinated with a drive that took the Iraqi city of Ramadi and a Turkish backed drive on Aleppo by Al Nusra.  All three operations were totally unhindered by U.S. and “coalition” air attacks, curiously so.  Moreover, reports from Ramadi of American C130 aircraft resupplying ISIS units have multiple confirmation despite US denials.  When questioned about this, U.S. Army Special Forces representatives blamed Iran for spreading the rumour as part of a psychological operations ploy despite the fact that the U.S. had previously admitted to “accidentally” resupplying ISIS forces near the Syrian Kurdish town of Kobani.  The Kobani “accidents” happened several time over a period of days during the height of the battle there.

Republican front runner Donald Trump had to postpone a rally in Chicago as a wave of protesters let their collective frustration be heard.

According to multiple reports, Trump postponed the event as hundreds of protesters surrounded the venue. The Associated Press reported that “a large portion of the crowd inside the University of Illinois at Chicago Pavilion broke out into raucous cheers. Meanwhile, supporters of the candidate started chanting ‘We want Trump! We want Trump!’”

A Trump spokesperson had to come out on stage to announce that the event would be postponed fearing for the inevitable chaos.

The event was dominated by small scrummages between protesters and supporters. Black, white, males and females were engaged in physical attacks against one another.

The protesters consisted of Blacks, Hispanics, Muslims and many more groups that have been targeted by Trump’s supporters and subjects of his dangerous rhetoric. These groups of people are routinely kicked out and assaulted at Trump rallies —but today was different. Since early evening their numbers grew and Chicago police began to remove protesters out of the venue one -by -one and within three hours the rally was postponed.

Trump said that Chicago police officials told him to cancel the event but CPD denies that.

Video shows some of the physical altercations:

In the aftermath of the various melees, five people were arrested and two injured according to reports out of Chicago.

States that allow autonomous practice by certified nurse-midwives (CNMs) have a higher proportion of CNM-attended births as well as lower rates of caesarean sections, preterm births, and low birth weight infants, according to a study published today in Women’s Health Issues.

Women’s Health Issues is the official journal of the Jacobs Institute of Women’s Health, which is based at Milken Institute School of Public Health (Milken Institute SPH) at the George Washington University.

Authors Tony Yang of George Mason University and Laura Attanasio and Katy Kozhimannil of the University of Minnesota School of Public Health analyzed data on 12 million births from 2009 through 2011 reported by 50 states and the District of Columbia to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

They classified each state as either being subject to collaborative agreement, meaning CNMs must have physician supervision or contractual practice agreements in order to practice (28 states), or as having autonomous practice, in which no such agreements are required (22 states and the District of Columbia).

The authors found that women giving birth in the states allowing independent midwifery practice had a 60% greater chance of having a certified nurse midwife as a birth attendant.

Past research has found that midwives are less likely than obstetricians to use interventions like labour induction and caesarean delivery – that may have higher risks for women and infants when performed without definitive medical need.

The authors of this study also found that women giving birth in the group of states allowing autonomous midwifery practice had 13% lower odds of caesarean delivery, 13% lower odds of preterm birth, and 11% lower odds of delivering low-birth weight babies when compared to women giving birth in the states with stricter requirements for CNM practice.

“Future policy efforts to enhance access to midwifery services may be beneficial to pregnancy outcomes and infant health,” the authors conclude, adding that more midwife-assisted births could lead to better birth outcomes and lower costs.

They note that caesarean deliveries not only come along with health risks but are approximately 50% more costly than vaginal deliveries.

The study, “State Scope of Practice Laws, Nurse-Midwifery Workforce, and Childbirth Procedures and Outcomes,” has been published online ahead of print and will appear in the May/June issue of Women’s Health Issues.

U.K. Misleading the Public on E.U. Immigration*

U.K. Misleading the Public on E.U. Immigration*

By James Slack, Jack Doyle

The true scale of immigration to Britain by E.U. citizens is being kept secret by Government officials, it emerged last night.

Top civil servants, led by HMRC boss Lin Homer, are refusing to publish figures that could reveal up to 1.3million extra migrants living in the UK. If revealed, the data could have an explosive impact on the E.U. debate.

MPs said the public were at risk of being ‘misled’ ahead of the ‘once-in-a-lifetime decision’ over whether Britain should re-take control of its borders. Requests to get to the truth have been thwarted for more than three months, with time now running out before the June 23 vote.

The row centres on a huge gap between two sets of data relating to immigration.

Office for National Statistics figures show some 904,000 EU migrants have arrived in Britain since June 2010 – but in the same time, officials issued 2.2million national insurance numbers to E.U. migrants. The ONS yesterday admitted the numbers do not appear to add up.

Experts say the Government should release the amount of ‘active’ NI numbers, meaning those being used to pay tax or receive benefits.

HM Revenue and Customs admits holding the information, but has been refusing to answer Freedom of Information requests and Parliamentary questions on the matter.

Officials claim it would be too expensive to do so.

HMRC’s Dame Lin has been frustrating attempts by Andrew Tyrie, head of Westminster’s Treasury select committee, to obtain the data.

Mr Tyrie asked for the ‘active’ NI numbers in December but was sent a response in February which ‘did not answer the question’. He has now requested them again.

Officially, 257,000 E.U. nationals were said to have arrived last year, but 630,000 from the E.U. were given NI numbers. This includes 209,000 NI numbers given to Romanians and Bulgarians, despite only 55,000 officially settling here last year.

Tory backbencher David Davis tried to get the information, in a Parliamentary question but was refused on grounds it could be provided only at ‘disproportionate cost’.

He said: ‘Why is this information not available? This is an important measure of how the country is run. At worst, it is misleading the public. The numbers are potentially about half of what they should be.’

Mr Davis said the difference between the two figures had significant implications for the job prospects of U.K. citizens, housing and public services, adding:

‘It is always important that the Government is transparent, but it is doubly important when the public at large are making a once-in-a-lifetime decision. There is absolutely no justification for withholding this information.’

The first request for the data was made by economist and former government advisor Jonathan Portes in November. The Government rejected the request in mid-December, saying that releasing the information would be ‘unhelpful’ to the Mr Cameron’s renegotiations.

Mr Portes appealed, but last month the Government again refused – this time claiming it would be too expensive.

A further appeal is before the Information Commissioner’s Office. Mr Portes said:

‘The Government has data on the number of recent E.U. migrants, which would shed considerable light on possibly the most important issue in what is certainly the most important electoral campaign in the U.K. in recent memory.

‘And its justification for not publishing … it would take more than three-and-a-half working days of one civil servant’s time. Perhaps we should no longer be surprised by this behaviour. The only question is whether our elected representatives will stand for it.’

The ONS said it ‘is undertaking ongoing reconciliation work’ on its immigration data and said NI numbers will be incorporated ‘when available’.

A possible explanation for the gap is that the ONS records only migrants who stay in Britain for more than a year, but people who work here for short periods of time require an NI number.

An HMRC spokesman said: ‘HMRC does not currently hold the requested information in a publishable format.’

Work and Pensions Secretary Iain Duncan Smith welcomed remarks by the Archbishop of Canterbury that Britons have a ‘justified’ fear of mass immigration, but said silencing of the debate has been ‘terrible for the British people’.

Victory for Traditional Marriage in Alabama*

Victory for Traditional Marriage in Alabama*

Indonesian CoupleBy Greg Corombos

The Alabama Supreme Court upheld an earlier decision banning state officials from issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples last week, and while the legal road is far from over for traditional marriage supporters, they believe the facts of the case and the Constitution are on their side.

The fight stems from early 2015, when Alabama justices ruled that probate judges should not obey federal court orders striking down the state’s laws defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman.

After the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in June 2015 that the Constitution contains the right to same-sex marriage, offices of probate judges began issuing licenses again. That policy was challenged by Liberty Counsel, leading to the most recent ruling on March 3.

“They put their stamp of approval on what they had previously done. The net result is they are reaffirming that marriage in Alabama is the union of a man and a woman and that the probate judges are barred from issuing marriage licences to same-sex couples. That is the net result, and that is a huge victory,” said Liberty Counsel Chairman Mathew Staver.

But it’s not the end of the fight. Staver believes the actions of probate judges on marriage licenses will thrust the issue back into the courts one way or another.

“One option is that the probate judges will not issue the same-sex marriage licenses. They might be sued to try to get them to comply to issue the license,” Staver said.

“On the other hand, there are other probate judges who are issuing the licenses. They might be sued because they are in contempt of the Alabama Supreme Court opinion.”

Staver elaborated on the latter issue and why refusing the Alabama Supreme Court decision could mean big trouble for probate judges in the state.

“They are governed by the Alabama Supreme Court, in particular the chief justice as the chief administrative officer of the judiciary. And they have to abide by what the Supreme Court says. If they do not, they can be found in contempt of court. They can even be removed from office,” Staver said.

But does the Alabama Supreme Court have a chance of winning this fight in the long term given the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision last year? Staver believes it can.

First, he said the flimsy rationale for the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Obergefell v. Hodges is critical.

“The Supreme Court’s 5-4 opinion is just that. It’s an opinion, and it doesn’t represent the rule of law. It’s illegitimate. It’s not founded in the Constitution or in any of the court’s precedents. And it is simply contrary to millennia of human history,” Staver said.

But he also argues Obergefell only applies to a few states since the court ruled on a case coming from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit, which covers Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio and Tennessee.

“It doesn’t apply to Alabama even if, in fact, it was the rule of law because it only applies to the parties in that particular case. None of the people in Alabama, none of the probate judges were parties of that U.S. Supreme Court decision,” Staver said.

Does this mean U.S. Supreme Court decisions do not have to be followed if opponents believe there is no constitutional basis for the decision?

Will there be an endless ping pong of cases between the state and federal systems when states decide to defy a court ruling?

Staver said the precedent is still for U.S. Supreme Court decisions to be followed, but there are exceptions and we see them in history, including the infamous 1857 Dred Scott decision, in which the high court upheld the Fugitive Slave Act, denying equal rights for black citizens.

“That case came out of Wisconsin. When it went back to Wisconsin, the Wisconsin Supreme Court said,

‘We’re not going to abide by that. We refuse to implement that rule.’ They continued to insist they would not follow the U.S. Supreme Court,” Staver said.

“To this day, they pride themselves that they were on the right side of the Constitution,” he added.

Staver says presidents have ignored Supreme Court decisions too.

“Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln (and) Andrew Jackson resisted unlawful, illegitimate legal actions,” he said.

“In the case of Abraham Lincoln, he famously advocated that the Dred Scott decision was illegitimate and did not represent the rule of law.

He said the bottom line is no branch of the federal government is all-powerful, including the Supreme Court.

“The Supreme Court has gotten way beyond its original authority, way beyond the Constitution. It doesn’t have unlimited power any more than the president or the Congress. It has certain prescribed powers,” Staver said.

“When they walk outside of those powers, outside of that authority, they are on their own. We cannot and should not, because to do so is literally unconstitutional. It’s lawless and it undermines the very republic that we love,” he said.

Staver said an overreaching, activist judiciary is one of the greatest threats facing the United States.

“What we have right now is a cancer, a cancer that will eat up the republic, a cancer that will undermine our freedom, a cancer that replaces ‘We the People’ with five individuals who are unelected at the Supreme Court,” Staver said.

“We need to excise out the cancer. The judiciary, starting with the U.S. Supreme Court, has become the cancer of our basic liberties. We need to bring it back into check.”
