‘Oh dear. Do lithium batteries pose a fire hazard? Yes they do. And suddenly it seems to be mainstream. The story we discussed in April became the focus of a major NBC item on June 20, including the suburban Houston fire chief whose department used a month’s worth of water putting it out comparing such fires to “a trick birthday candle.” And the Guardian just wrote an exposé on the environmental cost of lithium mining. Which of course has all been said before. But what’s actually encouraging is who’s saying it now: People who believe in man-made global warming, and alternative energy, are finally starting to engage in a balanced discussion of pros and cons. Mind you, in the era of the Internet it’s pretty hard to hush up the tendency of lithium batteries to cause horrendous fires. But if you’re waiting for our scathing putdown, well, not in this item. Proper attention to such things can only advance the discussion.
OK, one small putdown. NBC seems to regard the whole thing as a hiccup, to be overcome by one of progressives’ favourite techniques, training. “As the popularity of electric vehicles grows, firefighters nationwide are realizing that they are not fully equipped to deal with them. So they have been banding together, largely informally, to share information… But training to put out these fires can’t come fast enough as more electric vehicles arrive on U.S. roads every day. According to IHS Insight, an industry analysis firm, the number of registered electric vehicles reached a record market share in the United States of 1.8 percent and is forecast to double to 3.5 percent by the end of this year. But IHS notes that 1 in 10 cars are expected to be electric by 2025.”
Frankly we’ll believe that one when we see it. Partly because for all the chirpy enthusiasm about how EVs are on the verge of a technological and economic breakthrough, or several of them, again, batteries are as suspicious as an energy source as they are as a fire source. And a source of materials hard to dispose of. But again, the important point is that discussion of these issues is no longer taboo. Indeed the New York Times just dipped a toe into these calm, sensible waters with an item on how there isn’t enough lithium to meet President Biden’s EV goals and, what’s more, “production of raw materials like lithium, cobalt and nickel that are essential to these technologies are often ruinous to land, water, wildlife and people”. Now the Times also opines that “That environmental toll has often been overlooked in part because there is a race underway among the United States, China, Europe and other major powers.” But we think it would also be fair to say that it has been overlooked in part because climate alarmists, including those at the Times, have not wanted people to think there’s a downside to ditching fossil fuels.
Is the Uk now under Sharia? Even if you are not a Christian believer this is scary and will affect you in someway in the future. If the Speaker’s Corner in Hyde Park is truly a place for FREE SPEECHhttps://www.speakerscorner.net/ who is the real criminal in this article? Also take time to view the video at the conclusion of this article.
In the UK the ‘Speakers’ Corner is known as the home of free speech. Yet a brave Christian preacher has once again been arrested there because she was being critical of Islam.
Hatun Tash is a regular feature at Speakers’ Corner. Just last September she was escorted out of Speakers’ Corner by police; again, because she was being critical of Islam. Hatun has been warned that there are Muslims who want to kill her and that it is therefore dangerous for her to attend Speakers’ Corner. But Hatun is not intimidated or cowed. Even though she has been assaulted there before, she continues to preach there every week. She feels called to preach to the Muslims there and she is very effective in her ministry.
Hatun’s style is provocative. Deliberately so. This is how she attracts attention and gets people to listen. In September, the offending item was a copy of the Qur’an with holes drilled through it as a visual aid to point out that there are holes in the narrative around the Qur’an. As I pointed out then, no other book with holes in it would cause any problems or be seen as beyond the bounds of free speech. Only if we are effectively enforcing sharia law would we prohibit display of a Qur’an with holes in it.
Last Sunday she was wearing a T-shirt with a cartoon of Mohammad on it. Cartoons of any other figures would be clearly within the bounds of free speech. Only if we are effectively enforcing sharia law would a cartoon of Muhammad be prohibited. This is the home of free speech after all.
Home of free speech or not, Hatun was arrested, carried into a police van to cheers by the Muslim mob. She was held overnight in a police cell, before being released without charge. You can watch a video of the arrest here.
Capitulation to the mob
In the video, it is clear that there is a group of aggressive Muslims who are threatening Hatun. They are doing so right in front of the police officers. The police response is to arrest Hatun and take her out of the park. But she has committed no offence. After the arrest, a police officer talks to one of the Muslim protagonists who suggests to the officer that he has recognised that wearing that t-shirt was a breach of the peace. The officer denies this and explains (from 2:58):
Officer: She was here, and causing trouble. There’s one of her, and fifty-odd of you. So what we do is we take her from the situation. That’s what we’ve done.
Muslim: Appreciate that man, thanks.
Earlier the same Muslim man had challenged Hatun to go to France and wear her t-shirt.
The police have allowed the mob to dictate what the police should do. Rather than protecting Hatun and controlling the behaviour of the mob, the police remove Hatun and the mob cheers. The mob now knows that if they kick up enough fuss the police will remove Hatun again. The police have as good as said so. If this policy continues then it is clear that the mob have achieved their aim of Speakers’ Corner becoming Sharia Corner.
At the start of that video, a man called Mohammad Hijab tells the police to “go away” and “get out of here.”
Hijab has a large following on YouTube. On the same day he posted a video of himself preaching in Speaker’s Corner criticising world leaders for saying that Israel has a right to defend itself and saying we shouldn’t be shocked if some Muslim “blows himself up in the next couple of weeks.”
“I’m not going to be shocked if I see that. I’m going to expect it. I’m not going on trains. You’re putting your own populations in danger.”
Earlier the same day, Hijab was involved in a pro-Palestinian counter-demonstration against the rally for Israel and for peace. In this video he can clearly be seen being antagonistic. Hijab referred to some Jews as Zionists and threatened to a police officer that he would kill their dogs if he saw them again (from 0:57).
This mob had thrown bottles and eggs at some Jews who took a wrong turning and ended up mixed in with the Islamists.
Hijab then led the Muslim antagonists to Speakers’ Corner. A member of the mob openly said in front of police officers:
“We’ll find some Jews there! We want the Zionists! We want their blood!”
Hijab is seen saying: “We believe that life begins at death. We don’t care about death. We love death!”
Preacher arrested – antagonists go free
These same people were in the mob which then threatened Hatun. The police did not arrest the antagonists – they arrested Hatun who had made no threats and committed no offence.
The police are meant to operate without fear or favour. This is clearly no longer the case. Where there’s a mob, the police don’t dare to step in. The person being threatened is arrested, not the members of the mob. The one who has committed no offence is kept in a cell overnight. The threatening mob get their reward and go free. This is how law and order break down.
‘Contrary to a widespread idea, President Biden does not intend to guarantee “equality in Law” of all Americans without distinction of race. On the contrary, he intends to be the champion of “racial equity”, that is to say a form of equality between, not individuals, but what he considers as distinct racial groups. In this article, Thierry Meyssan will use the term “racism” in its literal sense and not in the common sense of “discriminatory behavior”. He will show that by announcing their intention to extend “racial equity” to the whole world, President Biden and the Democratic Party are threatening world peace.
President Biden’s top priority is to impose the ideology of the “1619 Project” on US society and the world.
In a federal state, somewhere in the world, the Department of Education decided to teach in primary and secondary schools that humanity is divided into distinct races.
Although these races are distinct, it is possible to mate them and give birth to children. However, these children will be sterile, like the mules of a donkey and a mare. This is why federal government statistics include whites, blacks, etc., but no mixed-race children.
Since there is an implicit hierarchy between these distinct races and, unfortunately, half-breeds are not sterile, they are automatically counted as belonging to the inferior race. The superior race must be preserved from all defilement.
This federal state was the Nazi Reich, but it is also the United States of Joe Biden and his Secretary of Education, Miguel Cardona.
We are witnessing the return of the “scientific racism” that caused the Second World War and its 70 million deaths. No one seems to be aware of the danger, however, and many people think that the U.S. Democrats are examples of openness to others.
Let us remember that the racism of the 1930s had all the trappings of science. It was researched in many scientific institutes and taught in universities in both the United States and Western Europe. To preserve the master race, many “modern” states had banned interracial marriages before World War I.
Racism is neither of the right nor of the left
In the collective imagination, racism would only develop in right-wing nationalist circles. This is absolutely false.
For example, at the end of the First World War, France occupied the Ruhr coal region militarily. Among the troops were Africans from Senegal and Madagascar for two years. Soon a protest movement developed in Germany, the United Kingdom, the United States and Canada to denounce the ignominy of the French who placed 20,000 blacks to dominate the German whites and rape their women. This racist movement was led by the main anti-racist figure of the beginning of the century, E. D. Morel , and gathered all the international feminist organizations in large demonstrations .
In France itself, socialists joined this racist movement, including Karl Marx’s grandson, Jean Longuet, a journalist at L’Humanité and future leader of the SFIO (Socialist Party).
It must be admitted that, in troubled times like the interwar period or the one we are living today, people follow their impulses whatever their ideas. They are often in complete contradiction with themselves and do not realize it.
The slavery and racist past of the American Democrats
In the United States, slavery and racism were mostly defended by the Democrats against the Republicans.
The Democratic Party platforms of 1840, 1844, 1848, 1852 and 1856 asserted that abolitionism diminished the happiness of the people and endangered the stability and permanence of the Union. The 1856 program declared that the member states of the Union may or may not practice domestic slavery and write it into their constitutions. The 1860 program describes the efforts of abolitionist states that refused to arrest runaway slaves as subversive and revolutionary. The 14th Amendment granting full citizenship to freed slaves was passed in 1868 by 94% of Republican Party legislators and 0% of Democratic Party The 15th Amendment, which granted the right to vote to freed slaves, was adopted in 1870 by 100% of the members of the Republican Party and 0% of the members of the Democratic Party In 1902, the Democratic Party passed a law in Virginia removing the right to vote from over 90% of African Americans. President Woodrow Wilson instituted racial segregation of federal employees and mandated a photo on every job application. The 1924 Democratic National Convention at Madison Square Garden in New York City was called the “Klan-Bake” because of the influence of the Ku Klux Klan in the party.
Things did not really change until 1964, when, just after the Kennedys’ efforts, President Lyndon Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act into law. This was a painful turnaround, as Democratic lawmakers managed to block the legislation for 75 days.
The “1619 Project” is an operation of the New York Times Magazine. It aims to rewrite American history.
The “1619 Project
The Biden administration claims to be anti-racist and no one doubts its good faith. But it is so in the manner of the Democratic Party of the years 1840-1961. That is, in practice, not at all. Quite the contrary.
Its educational decisions are designed to promote the ideology of the « 1619 Project ». According to this ideology, the United States was not founded by the War of Independence against the British Crown, but more than two centuries earlier, in 1619, with the idea of enslaving black people.
The “1619 Project” was marked by a series of supplements and then dedicated articles in the New York Times since 2019. In doing so, this daily newspaper has moved from trying to report the truth to becoming a propaganda tool for Puritan ideology. According to the NY Times, Native Americans were slavers like the Europeans. However, the Spaniards freed the Amerindian slaves who fled their masters on the condition that they converted to the true faith, Catholicism. In the end, the European colonies in the Americas only really developed after the arrival of black slaves from Angola on the territory of the current USA, in 1619. The War of Independence was not against the unjust taxes of the British Crown, but to preserve the slave system. This is why the United States is systemically racist. It is the duty of every white man to realize the undue privilege he enjoys and to redress the crimes of white patriarchy.
This theory does not rise from history . It mixes slavery and racism (for example, Native Americans enslaved their enemies, but they were not racist). It ignores white slaves (among the first slaves in North America were Englishmen who were convicted by the courts). It despises the emancipation of the colonists from England. Finally, it was not the United States, but the Portuguese who brought slavery to the colonists and traded it. Moreover, this theory is American-centric and ignores the slavery of blacks and their systematic castration by the Arabs for a thousand years.
This theory is religious. It takes up the myth of original sin, which it transforms, and for which it makes every white man responsible. Like the iconoclasts, the Puritans or the Wahhabites, its supporters destroy the impure representations of those who have sinned, starting with the Southern generals.
Each lie begets a new one. Indeed, the Southerners were not defending slavery (which they abolished before the end of the Civil War), but the right of each Confederate state to have its own customs.
The supporters of the “1619 Project” acted exactly like what they intended to fight: men were no longer guilty for what they did, but at birth, by heredity.
Joe Biden’s institutionalization of racism
When the Biden administration’s Secretary of Education, Miguel Cardona, decided to promote the “1619 Project” in elementary and secondary schools, there was a nationwide protest.
The most interesting reaction was in Oklahoma. The local Congress passed a bill, which was immediately signed into law by Governor Kevin Stitt. The latter is a Cherokee Indian and a Jacksonian like Donald Trump . This law, HB 1775 (download the text at the bottom of this page), prohibits anyone from teaching the following eight racist propositions:
1. one race or gender is inherently superior to another race or gender. 2. an individual, because of his or her race or gender, is inherently racist, sexist, or oppressive, consciously or unconsciously. 3. a person should be discriminated against or treated adversely solely or in part because of his or her race or gender, 4. members of one race or gender cannot and should not attempt to treat others without regard to their race or gender. 5. the moral character of an individual is necessarily determined by his or her race or sex. 6. an individual, because of his or her race or gender, bears responsibility for the past actions of other members of the same race or gender. 7. any individual should feel discomfort, guilt, anxiety, or any other form of psychological distress because of their race or gender. 8. meritocracy or traits such as a hard work ethic are racist or sexist or have been created by members of a particular race to oppress members of another race.
The legislation banning the teaching of all or parts of these eight propositions in Oklahoma schools was passed by 100% of Republican lawmakers and 0% of Democratic lawmakers.
We must measure the consequences of the “1619 Project” ideology that the Democratic Party and the Biden Administration intend not only to apply in the United States, but to spread throughout the world. It can only lead to massive violence.

 Democratic historiography holds President Jackson responsible for the genocide of the Cherokee Indians on the “Trail of Tears. Obviously this is not how Cherokke Kevin Stitt thinks.
Isaiah 46:13 I bring near my righteousness; it shall not be far off, and my salvation shall not tarry: and I will place salvation in Zion for Israel my glory.
‘Palestinian terror groups such as Hamas have a surefire strategy to win over the world’s sympathy: fire rockets into Israeli territory, trigger an Israeli response and wait for the global outrage against Israel’s response.
The strategy is effective because Israel is so darn good at protecting its citizens from missile attacks, thanks to ubiquitous bomb shelters and a sophisticated Iron Dome missile defense. So, if the terror rockets don’t kill any Jews, but the forced retaliations kill Palestinians, anyone biased against Israel will have a field day.
Consider, for example, Representative Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who flipped the script and accused Israel of committing an “act of terrorism” with its airstrikes on the Gaza Strip on May 10, which resulted in the deaths of 20 Palestinians.
“Israeli air strikes killing civilians in Gaza is an act of terrorism,” Omar tweeted. “Palestinians deserve protection.”
Indeed, they do. They deserve protection from their murderous, corrupt and Jew-hating leaders who deliberately provoke Israel into retaliatory strikes that they know endangers the lives of their people.
Provoking Israel into killing Palestinians is the perfect diversion from the blatant failures of Palestinian leadership to improve the welfare of its people. Abbas canceling the PA elections? Israel’s fault. Trouble on Temple Mount? Israel’s fault. Chronic poverty and misery? Israel’s fault. A legal dispute over houses in East Jerusalem? Let’s fire rockets into Israeli cities and blame Israel for the reprisals.
Meanwhile, these cowardly leaders sit comfortably in their villas and bunkers basking in the world’s endorsement that, yes, it must be Israel’s fault.
Have you “Disliked” your Biden’s White House video today? If not please do so as this may be the only way the average person gets to express themselves in a non-violent manner. Oh, by the way, are those two women behind the Fake President or two men identifying as women?
Elected and non-elected leaders of the world had been called to attend a Zoom meeting by Joe Biden to discuss the climate crisis Biden believes exists. As obedient puppy dogs these world leaders obeyed including the CCP tyrant. The one man that disappointed me in attending was the professing Christian Prime Minister of Australia. However, does Climate Change as Biden and these other leaders believe really exist? How may you and I know if they are really telling us scientific proven facts?
Well, if you are a born-again Bible believing Christian you can trust the Word of God, the Bible. Therefore, we will consider what God’s Word has to say.
In the very first book of the Bible it tells us man disobeyed God and in Genesis 3:24 because of man’s disobedience God …drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.
Man was cast out of the Garden due to disobedience (sin) and due to that sin, there was climate change for the world too was cursed. Ge 3:17 And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life; 18 Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field; 19 In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.
Less than 2000 years after creation God’s Word says in Ge 6:5-8 And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. 6 ¶ And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. 7 And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them. 8 ¶ But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.
God sent the flood and only Noah and his family survived. After the flood there was definitely again climate change but God promised Noah in Ge 8:22 While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.
We also read where God promises man that the earth will never be destroyed again by a flood and that the rainbow was that token of His promise. Ge 9:11-13 11 And I will establish my covenant with you; neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a flood; neither shall there any more be a flood to destroy the earth. 12 ¶ And God said, This is the token of the covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations: 13 I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth.
Now we pass on many centuries for a look into the future of this world and consider the subject of climate change from the words of the Creator. That brings us to 2Pe 3:5-13 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: 6 Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: 7 But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. 8 ¶ But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. 9 ¶ The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. 10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.11 ¶ Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, 12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? 13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.
There has been climate change in the past and there will be climate change in the future. All that we see in this world and this universe will be destroyed because of sinful man BUT there will be a new heaven and new earth for those who have trusted the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Saviour. John 3:36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.
There is hope for all, even those who are presently in the pantheistic religion of climate change.
