Q & A with James Fallows on Trump and Pence        
Think Donald Trump will give us many positive surprises in the near term? Dream on. His EPA nominee hates the agency’s mission. Among at least the long-shot possibilities for secretary of state? The head of ExxonMobil. What is this, reality or a cartoon? I caught up with James Fallows of the The Atlantic, once Jimmy Carter’s chief speechwriter, for his own take […]
          Blog Post: Exxon Says Mass. Top Court Alone Can’t Handle Climate Fight        
Exxon Mobil Corp. on Thursday told a New York federal judge that the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court’s decision to fast-track consideration of whether state Attorney General Maura Healey’s climate investigation into the company is warranted does not support efforts to dismiss Exxon’s federal case challenging the probe.
          Blog Post: Mass. Top Court Can Handle Exxon Climate Fight, AG Says        
The Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court's recent decision to a fast-track consideration of whether state Attorney General Maura Healey’s climate change investigation of Exxon Mobil Corp. is warranted supports her argument that federal courts shouldn’t short-circuit her climate probe of the oil giant, Healey's chief legal counsel told a New York federal judge on Tuesday.
          THE ART OF THE (TRUMP AND PUTIN) DEALSay you’re Vladimir Putin,...        


THE ART OF THE (TRUMP AND PUTIN) DEAL

Say you’re Vladimir Putin, and you did a deal with Trump last year. Whether there was such a deal is being investigated. But if you are Putin and you did do a deal, what might Trump have agreed to do for you? 

1. Repudiate NATO. NATO is the biggest thorn in your side – the alliance that both humiliates you and stymies your ambitions. Trump seemed intent to deliver on this during his recent European trip by bullying members about payments and seemingly not reaffirming Article 5 of the pact, which states that any attack on one NATO ally is an attack on all. (He’s backtracked on this since then, under pressure from Congress.)

2. Antagonize Europe, especially Angela Merkel. She’s the strongest leader in the West other than Trump, and you’d love to drive a wedge between the United States and Germany. Your larger goal is for Europe to no longer depend on the United States, so you can increase your influence in Europe. Trump has almost delivered on this, too. Merkel is already saying Europe can no longer depend on America.

3. Take the United States out of the Paris accord on the environment. This will anger America’s other allies around the world and produce a wave of anti-Americanism – all to your advantage. You’d also love for the whole Paris accord to unravel because you want the world to remain dependent on fossil fuels. Russia is the world’s second-largest exporter of oil after Saudi Arabia, and biggest exporter of natural gas. And the oil and gas industry contributes about half the revenues to your domestic budget. And, hey, there’s also all those Arctic ports that are opening up now that the earth is warming. Trump has delivered on this. 

4. Embark on a new era of protectionism. Or at least anti-trade rhetoric. This will threaten the West’s economic interdependence and loosen America’s economic grip on the rest of the world. Trump is on the way to delivering on this one.

5. End the economic sanctions on Russia, imposed by the United States in 2014. Oil production on land is falling so you want to tap the vast petroleum and gas reserves offshore in the Arctic. In 2011, you and ExxonMobil’s Rex Tillerson, signed a $500 billion deal to do this. But the sanctions stopped it cold. Trump has promised to lift them, but he hasn’t delivered on this yet, because he has got to cope with all the suspicions in America about his deal with you. Once it dies down, he’ll end the sanctions. In the meantime, he’ll give you back the two compounds that were seized by the Obama administration when the U.S. intelligence discovered you’d interfered in the election.

And what might you have agreed to do for Trump in return? 

Two things: First, you’d help him win the presidency, by hacking into Democratic Party servers, leaking the results, sending millions of fake news stories about Hillary to targeted voters, and tapping into voter lists. 

Second, after he was elected, you’d shut up about your help so Trump wouldn’t be impeached and convicted of treason.

In other words, if you did a deal, you both still have every incentive to fulfill your side of it. That’s the art of the deal.


          Energy consumption by states        
SUBHEAD: Texas consumes the most energy, Vermont the least. Per capita New York the least. Hawaii close.

By Mickey Francis on 2 August 2017 for EIA.gov -
(https://www.eia.gov/todayinenergy/detail.php?id=32312)


Image above: Mountain of damaged oil drums near Exxon refinery. From (https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:A_MOUNTAIN_OF_DAMAGED_OIL_DRUMS_NEAR_THE_EXXON_REFINERY_-_NARA_-_546000.jpg).

EIA’s State Energy Data System (SEDS) recently released 2015 data estimates for all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia. The estimates include data on both total energy consumption and energy consumption per capita, which is calculated by dividing total consumption by population.

In 2015, Texas consumed a total of 13 quadrillion British thermal units (Btu), or about 13% of total U.S. energy consumption. Texas has consumed the most energy in every year since 1960, the earliest year for which EIA has data. California ranked second in energy use, with a total consumption of 8 quadrillion Btu, about 8% of U.S. total energy use.

Louisiana, Florida, and Illinois round out the top five energy-consuming states, which together account for more than one-third of total U.S. total energy use. Total energy consumption by the top 10 states exceeded the combined energy use of the other 41 states (including the District of Columbia).

Vermont was the lowest energy-consuming state in 2015 at about 132 trillion Btu; it was the only state with a lower consumption level than the District of Columbia’s 179 trillion Btu. Historically, Vermont has used less energy than any other state since 1961. Rhode Island, Delaware, Hawaii, and New Hampshire round out the top five lowest energy-consuming states, which together accounted for only 1% of total U.S. energy use in 2015.

Overall, total U.S. energy consumption in 2015 was about 97 quadrillion Btu, a decrease of about 1% from 2014. In percentage terms, the states with the largest year-over-year percentage changes in energy use ranged from Minnesota, with a 7.6% decrease from 2014, to Florida, with a 3.7% increase from 2014.

Thirty-five states and the District of Columbia had less energy consumption in 2015 than in 2014, led by states in the Midwest.

The seven largest percentage decreases in energy use all occurred among Midwestern states: energy consumption in Minnesota, Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin, Ohio, Indiana, and Missouri decreased by a total of 704 trillion Btu from 2014 to 2015, accounting for nearly half of the total decline among states that had lower energy use in 2015 than in 2014.


Image above: Total BTU consumption by state. From original article.

In terms of total energy consumption per capita, Louisiana ranked the highest of any state, totaling 912 million Btu (MMBtu) per person in 2015. These rankings reflect the total consumption across all sectors in the state: residential, commercial, transportation, industrial, and electric power. Wyoming ranked second with 893 MMBtu, followed by Alaska (840 MMBtu), North Dakota (802 MMBtu), and Iowa (479 MMBtu).

High per capita energy consumption in these states is largely attributable to industrial sector energy consumption, which accounts for more than 50% of all consumption in those five states.

High production in the energy-intensive fossil fuel industry contributes to the high industrial sector consumption: Louisiana, Alaska, and North Dakota are all among the top ten states in crude oil production, while Wyoming is a leading producer of coal and natural gas. Iowa’s agriculture and manufacturing industries contribute to its relatively high consumption of energy in the sector.


Image above: Total BTU consumption per capita by state. From original article.

In 2015, New York had the lowest total energy consumption per capita at 189 MMBtu, followed by Rhode Island, California, Hawaii, and Florida. Again, relatively low per capita consumption reflects the relatively low industrial sector energy consumption in those states. Overall, the 2015 U.S. national average total energy consumption per capita was 303 MMBtu in 2015, about 2% lower than in 2014 and 1.6% lower than in 2000.

EIA’s State Energy Data System contains a complete set of state-level estimates of energy production, consumption, prices, and expenditures through 2015.

          Flyers Says Goodbye to Convenience-Store Retailing        

AUBURN, Calif. -- Flyers Energy will exit the retail business with the sale of its 39 convenience stores to Andeavor Corp.

Established in 1979, Flyers is a third-generation family-owned business with stores in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Managing Partner Walt Dwelle said the time was right for he and his brothers and other family to narrow the scope of the company's business, but he didn’t rule out a return to c-stores someday.

"Refiners are looking for strategies to distribute their products, so the business climate was right for us to sell our retail stores," Dwelle said. "We continue to grow in commercial products, including renewable energy, and are still acquiring other companies when the deal is right. That may include companies with retail stores in the future."

Flyers Energy sold all of its 39 c-stores and gas-station locations to the newly renamed Andeavor Corp., formerly Tesoro Corp., as reported in a CSP Daily News Flash.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Andeavor will change some of the locations to new fuel brands, including Mobil, Exxon, Arco or Shell. The agreement allows the buyer up to 12 months to rename the newly acquired stations.

"This [deal] will further strengthen our integrated business by expanding our retail presence in Northern California by adding approximately 6,000 barrels per day of branded sales," Andeavor Chairman and CEO Greg Goff said during the company's second-quarter earnings conference call. "We expect the sites to contribute $10 million of annual net earnings and about $25 million of annual EBITDA."

Auburn, Calif.-based Flyers started with the purchase of seven independent gas stations in Northern California. “Retail is where we began and it was a difficult decision to give it up, but it’s a relatively small part of our business today,” said Dwelle.

In July, Flyers completed the acquisition of lubricants operations in Las Vegas, Phoenix and Tucson, Ariz., from Western Refining, which also was recently acquired by Andeavor. Flyers Energy expects to increase its volume of lubricants sold from 1 million gallons in 2010 to nearly 19 million gallons next year with the help of an exclusive deal with ExxonMobil and through a series of acquisitions of petroleum distributors in California, Nevada and Arizona, the company said.

Newly renamed, San Antonio-based Andeavor is an integrated marketing, logistics and refining company with more than 3,200 gas stations and convenience stores under multiple fuel brands, including Arco, SuperAmerica, Shell, Exxon, Mobil, Tesoro, USA Gasoline and Giant.

          Flyers Energy Sells Its 39 C-Stores        

AUBURN, Calif. -- Flyers Energy has sold all of its 39 convenience-store and gas-station locations to the newly renamed Andeavor Corp., formerly Tesoro Corp., according to a report in the Auburn Journal.

Auburn, Calif.-based Flyers Energy is a third-generation family-owned business operated by the Dwelle family. It ranked No. 100 on CSP’s 2017 Top 202 list of the largest c-store chains in the country. With the Andeavor deal, Flyers effectively exits the c-store industry, instead choosing to concentrate on other areas of business.

The company operates 39 Flyers c-store locations and 18 hybrid locations that act like franchises, but the operators pay Flyers a commission on sales. Flyers Energy is also a wholesale supplier of fuels and lubricants and operates 263 card locks (83 stand-alone and 180 retail sites) and 15 lube outlets (nine in Nevada and six in California). Flyers Energy is a branded distributor of Chevron, Shell and Valero fuel for both wholesale and retail.

Newly renamed, San Antonio-based Andeavor is an integrated marketing, logistics and refining company with more than 3,200 gas stations and convenience stores under multiple fuel brands, including Arco, SuperAmerica, Shell, Exxon, Mobil, Tesoro, USA Gasoline and Giant.

          Apple Knows Plenty        

Apple is poised to become the biggest company in the world by 'market capitalisation'. It maybe briefly inched ahead of EXXON yesterday in chaotic market trading, but it will very surely be well ahead of the pack by the end of the year. Apple's sales and profits are rocketing and the value of the company is still being significantly underestimated by the markets.

The remarkable fact is that although Apple is now a large company by any standards (annualised sales of over $100 Billion) its profits and its sales turnover are still growing at an amazing rate. Big companies can be very profitable, and big companies can sometimes grow revenues quickly, but Apple is doing both of these things consistently, quarter by quarter. As can be seen in this chart produced by Horace Dedieu


















For fuller discussion of the chart see Asymco's note on Apple's growth scorecard for second quarter 2011. In Asymco's deadpan style these sales and profit growth stats are dubbed merely"exceptional" or "very good". But Asymco is being too phlegmatically Finnish, it is frankly unprecedented for a company with annual sales of approaching $100 Billion to be growing year on year at 82% (and in the preceding quarters 83%, 70%, 67%, 61%, 49%, 32%, 6%). You have to go back to Q3 2009 to find the merely respectable figure of 6% annual growth!

The crazy thing is that there are some very strong planks in Apple's growth strategy that we still cannot infer from reported figures. Only Apple knows, or can guess, how strong a part of the growth story will come in the next decade from the sale of music, film, books, and apps all coursing through iTunes and all generating a 30% turn for Apple. This IP-derived cash will become an important part of Apple's revenue streams and even more of its profits, because the marginal cost of selling more digital media through iTunes is very low.

We dont know much about Apple's revenue from apps in iTunes, but we do know, from a press release, that Apple had cummulatively paid out over $2.5 Billion to app developers by July 2011, which means that Apple has retained $1.1 Billion from its share of sales of apps through iTunes (over the 4 years that apps have been for sale in iTunes). At the iPad 2 launch event in January Apple had announced 2$ Billion in payments to app developers, so it is probable that Apple sales from apps will comfortably exceed 1$ Billion in 2011.

Buried within these gross figures, that are reported in bald outline, there will be an amazing amount of detail that is available to Apple only. Apple now has a good deal of insight on the relative buying patterns of owners of iPhones and iPads (now 150 million and 30 million owners in each case). Apple has a lot of information on individuals buying habits for music, film, and for apps, for games, productivity tools, ebooks and magazines and newspapers. Very little of this information is aggregated or understood outside the confines of Cupertino. It would be very interesting to know what the average iPad owner spends on media in the first quarter or the first year of 'ownership', on games, music, ebooks and periodical subscriptions. If the 'average' iPad owner spends $6 per annum on magazine subscriptions through iTunes there is already an annualised market for nearly $200 million in magazine subs. That figure may be too high at this stage when there are so many 'experimental' magazine apps out there doing their publishers experiments. But it is not outlandish to suppose that periodical subscriptions spending could soon head towards $10 or $20 per owner, which will mean that the market will soon be measured in billions. It would be informative/encouraging to know whether expenditure on various classes of media tends to increase or flatten out? There is a widespread belief that app purchases tend to focus around the very low prices on the Apple pricing matrix: 99c or $1.99. That stands to reason, but many publishers and developers would like to have more information, more guidance on pricing at higher levels for more sophisticated offerings. I suspect, and we have smidgins of data that bear this out, that iTunes is now selling relatively big ticket items well (by 'big ticket' I mean items priced at $15 or over, even $50 and over) Apple does not currently have a way of guiding developers and publishers on these issues: except through reporting sales on specific apps -- which Apple does well, promptly and fairly, in my opinion.

I suspect that the information that the market-wide information Apple now has on some of these issues is both quite surprising and also of minimal use to Apple's competitors. So I expect that Apple will find ways of conveying more information that will help to guide the deliberations of its developers and publishers.

From the snail's eye view that we have at Exact Editions one can say with confidence that Apple's potential for revenue generation through iTunes and the app store in particular is extraordinary. Here are four things that we have learned since Apple introduced its automatic renewals within iTunes:

(1) Renewals are good. We have limited data (less than three months) but there are indications that subscriber renewals through iTunes will be over 75%, possibly over 90%. Month by month. If annual renewals are also good, Apple's and the publishers revenues from digital magazines enter a virtuous spiral.

(2) Any special interest consumer monthly magazine with a paid annual circulation over 10,000 print subscribers will make good money from deploying a branded app in iTunes. The revenues from iTunes, even after Apple's commission, taxes, and Exact Editions development charges, will significantly exceed the costs (there must be some exceptions to this rule of thumb, but we have not seen them yet). A magazine that has 10,000 subscribers in print will find 1,000+ subscribers in the 200 million consumers that have iTunes accounts. Next year that proportion will be higher, when there are 250 million iPads.....

(3) The gap between appreciation of magazines on the iPad ("I love my magazine") and appreciation on the iPhone is widening ("the page IS small"). Most iOS magazine apps are being bought by iPad owners. The new iPad 2 is also clearly better than its predecessor for magazines. We think that the iPad 3 may mark another step change, especially for highly visual magazines.

(4) A significant proportion of users who subscribe to a magazine in iTunes will choose the expensive option of a 12 month sub, rather than the easy option of a 30 day sub. Though all our publishers offer discounts for annual subs when they price their subscriptions for iTunes, in nearly all cases the reward for the 12 month sub is small -- 10/15%. So we have been surprised to see 20%, 25% even 30% of subscribers opting for the bigger ticket (it varies with different magazines). Surely the adoption rate will be even higher when magazine publishers decide to start experimenting with promotional annual subscriptions in iTunes. This is excellent news for publishers who wish to maximise subscription revenues on the digital side, it is very good news for Apple also, though it is going to be another 9 months before we start to find out how good the annual renewal rate in iTunes is!

          A Heel On The Throat of The American Dream: Manufacturing Regulations         

Economic freedom is the greatest gift ever bestowed on man. In the United States, we saw the greatest industrial revolution the world had ever experienced. We set the bar for achievement with the production of the automobile, we put men in the air and built ships of amazing size. We revolutionized steel production and built bridges that stand strong to this day as a symbol of American ingenuity.

Made in the U.S.A. was proudly stamped on almost every part of American life. From the most intricate part of the internal combustion engine to the basic design of the farmers plow shear, we worked together moving forward. As echoed by Henry Ford, “[I]f everything is moving forward together, then success takes care of itself.” But when is the last time you held a power tool that was stamped “Made in the U.S.A.”?

Under the Obama administration, massive regulations were set in place that made it harder and more expensive for manufacturers to keep up with the world. In fear of bankruptcy under the pressure of overwhelmingly burdensome regulations imposed by federal agencies, many were forced to export their businesses overseas. If the U.S. was able to maintain growth rates from twenty years ago, America’s manufacturing sector would, in fact, be $1 Trillion bigger than it is today.

We hear stories every day from hard working Americans who are fed up, they are fed up when Ford moves its factories to Mexico, they are fed up when they break a tool made of cheap Chinese steel, they are fed up when the see a politician handing out American flags during a parade bearing the words “Made in China,” and many direct their anger and frustration at at the many companies that are leaving the U.S. Every American ought to be frustrated when the see business leaving our economy, but that frustration should be directed at the Federal government, not the American businessman.

Thirty percent fewer Americans are employed in manufacturing now as compared with twenty years ago. The greatest setback on U.S. manufacturing has been the decades-long encroachment of the regulatory state. Today, more than 300,000 regulators wielding a massive budget of $60 billion are standing between you and your American dream. Compliance with the demands of regulators is costing manufacturers on average $20,000 per employee per year, while smaller manufacturers (those with fewer than 50 employees) face costs upward of $35,000 per employee per year. As a matter of fact, surveys find that America’s manufacturers regularly rank regulatory burdens as the top impediment to growth; a large majority also say the regulatory cost are higher in America than in other nations.

On average, the Obama administration's Department of Labor finalized nearly twice as many major labor regulations per year than the previous four administrations. This blatant disregard for the blue collar American worker will come at a cost. The National Association of Manufactures estimates that over 155,700 jobs will be lost and compliance costs will rise to $81.6 billion over the next 10 years. Just six major regulations require near 412 million hours of paperwork, this comes out to about 12 years of 40 hour weeks just for paperwork.

It came at no surprise to find that America is consuming more foreign goods than we export, contributing to today's manufacturing trade deficit of about $600 billion. Today, manufacturing accounts for the single largest share of all U.S. exports. There are 30 percent fewer jobs in the U.S. manufacturing sector than there were in 1997 and over the past decade, world manufacturing’s contribution to global GDP had risen by $3 trillion while the U.S. has been left in the dust with our contribution being only $500 billion, almost all of which occurred before 2008. The U.S share of global manufacturing has declined from our longtime level of 25 percent to about 15 percent over the past 20 years.

History shows that an increase in productivity usually credited by innovations that reduce the number of labor hours per unit of output, leads to a lower cost of goods, increased wealth, and a faster economic growth. But with crippling regulatory costs, American business owners are forced to keep using the same worn out machines, they miss out on opportunities to innovate and to make their jobs more efficient, being unable to raise the quality of their products because they’re being backed into a corner by federal regulations.

Throughout his campaign, Donald Trump promised to revive the U.S. manufacturing and over the past seven months since taking the oath of office, Apple, Foxconn, Intel, Exxon, And Hasbro have announced plans to expand or restore U.S. based manufacturing operations. Just four days after taking office, President Trump issued a Presidential Memorandum Streamlining Permitting and Reducing Regulatory Burdens for Domestic Manufacturing. The memo directs executive departments and agencies to “support the expansion of manufacturing in the United States” and instructs the Secretary of Commerce to “submit a report to the President setting forth a plan to streamline Federal permitting process for domestic manufacturing and to reduce regulatory burdens affecting domestic manufacturers.” This action was followed by a string of Executive Orders calling for a slash in regulatory burdens. When carried out we will have had the largest cut in regulations since the Reagan era.

This is what Americans need, this is what Americans want, and this is what we must do if we are to become once again a leader in global manufacturing. With less time dedicated to complying with the demands of Federal agencies, Americans will have more freedom to expand, excel, and dominate in manufacturing.

The problem is not trading whether it comes in the form of imports or exports, the problem is not the fact that China is surpassing The United States in manufacturing. We must look to the root of the issue, the problem is that for too long, federal agencies have consistently turned their back on the American worker, government control of the economy is out of control, at the expense of blue-collar America, the Federal Government continues to restrict struggling industries from progressing.

Trade between countries is vital for progress, in Wealth of Nations, Adam Smith writes, “The labor of the rich country is not always much more productive than that of the poor; at least, it is never so much more productive as it commonly is in manufactures.” He goes on to say, “This great increase of the quantity of work which, in consequence of the division of labour, the same number of people are capable of performing, is owing to three different circumstances; first, to the increase of dexterity in every particular workman; secondly, to the saving of the time which is commonly lost in passing from one species of work to another; and lastly, to the innovation of a great number of machines which facilitate and abridge labour, and enable one man to do the work of many.”

The world economies can work successfully together and learn from each other, as long as government stays out of the way, we will innovate, we will create new and better ways within our trades. But as long as the American worker is more restricted throughout the world, we will come in last, we will continue to cut jobs and the pink slips will be ever more prevalent.

With more money in the pocket of the American worker we will clearly see once again how obtainable the American dream is, and together united we will rise again as leaders of innovation, pioneers of progress, and consummate the imagination of our children into something real and tangible. Let’s leave a future for those who follow us, a future where in the words of John F. Kennedy we “seek to invoke the wonders of science” and “together let us explore the stars, conquer the deserts, eradicate disease, tap the ocean depths and encourage the arts and commerce.”


          Interview of Wilford F. Weeks by Brian Shoemaker        
Interview of Wilford F. Weeks by Brian Shoemaker Weeks, Wilford F. Wilford Weeks, born in 1919, has had a long and distinguished scientific career in geology and oceanography, including decades of involvement in both polar regions. He earned both his B.S. and M.S degrees at the University of Illinois at Champaign, where he also developed a side career playing the contrabass in various major orchestras. His Ph.D. studies at the University of Chicago were temporarily interrupted when in 1955 he was called to active duty as an Air Force officer. This led to his assignment to the Hopedale Station in Labrador to the Joint Services Sea Ice Physics Program. He made side trips to Greenland and Baffin Island. These northern assignments started his lifelong involvement with polar studies. In 1956 he earned his Ph.D. His next duty station was to Thule, Greenland, where he continued doing structural studies on the vertical grain distribution in sea ice. In 1957 he left the Air Force after two years of service, and joined the staff of Washington University in St. Louis where until 1962 he taught various courses on geochemistry and geology. His summers were spent with the Snow, Ice, and Permafrost Research Establishment (SIPRE) in Wilmette, Illinois, where he continued his research on sea ice. After declining teaching positions at both the University of Wisconsin and Washington University, in 1962 he joined the Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory (CRREL) in Hanover, New Hampshire. There he became a member of the Snow and Ice Branch and was Chief of that department from 1964 to 1966. He stayed with CRREL until 1989. His various assignments at CRREL included several stays at Thule, Greenland from 1964 through 1967. He spent time at Camp Century, an under-the-ice, secret facility some 100 miles from Thule. While there he studied the variation of compressive strength in glacial ice and snow as a function of variations in density, as well as the in-situ temperatures of ice at depths 10 meters below the surface of the ice cap. He also continued his long-term interests in the study of sea ice and river ice. Weeks offers comments on the tools and equipment necessary to conduct such operations, including the planes, helicopters, ice breakers, living quarters, scientific instruments. He also discusses the roles and personal interactions, including personality conflicts, among his colleagues. Another theme was the decline in polar money in recent years that has limited research efforts, especially for Arctic projects. Most funding has gone for projects in the Antarctic. During these same years, 1964 to 1967, he made other research trips to the Beartooth Mountains in Montana, where he studied shear and tensile strength variations and grain size distributions in the snow pack. In 1969 he worked for a time as a consultant to the Humble Oil Company (which later became Exxon), to study properties of the sea ice in the Northwest Passage. Tankers would have to pass through this area in order to reach Prudhoe Bay, Alaska, site of a huge oil strike in 1967. In 1973 Weeks had a four-month assignment in a warmer clime when he worked with Japanese scientists in Hokkaido, Japan at the Institute of Low Temperature Studies, the third largest snow and ice research group in the world. Later he wrote one of the early studies on the cost-effectiveness of towing ice bergs for use as alternative fresh water sources, and concluded that an effective use of these bergs is some years away. Another assignment with CRREL was to study sea ice and coastal pressure ridges as part of the Arctic Ice Dynamics Joint Experiment (AIDJEX), a really outstanding program, especially in its early phases. The principal big sea ice dynamics model was not developed there, however, although AIDJEX had the great benefit of introducing a number of first class people to sea ice science. Some of these people, including Weeks, were also associated with the Outer Continental Shelf Environmental Assessment Program (OCSEAP), a very diverse program. Weeks conducted many laser profiles of the surface roughness of ice in the late 1970’s, including measuring crystal orientations in fast ice. In 1979 Weeks was elected to the National Academy of Engineering (NAE), a prestigious honor. This led to his first assignment in the Antarctic. In 1980 Weeks, and Tony Gow conducted a study of sea ice in McMurdo Sound that included crystal orientation studies. They also studied platelet ice that forms from super-cooled water that came from under the ice shelf. Such ice does not exist in the Arctic. During the years from 1984 to 1986 Weeks, in part because of the urging of Bill Campbell, became more involved with NASA. He became a member of the Earth System Science Committee, a project conceived by Shelby Tilford to look at the earth as a total system. In 1986 Weeks went to Alaska to become Chief Scientist at the Alaska Synthetic Aperture Radar Facility, and later became Professor of Geophysics at the University of Alaska in Fairbanks. There he taught a graduate course on sea ice. In 1990 he returned a second time to the Antarctic to collect ice samples from McMurdo and the Ross Sea, and a third time in 1993. That same year he retired as Chief Scientist, but continued on at CRREL on a limited basis. In 1995 he made his last working trip to Barrow. In 1996 he moved to Portland, Oregon, and continued consulting on an occasional basis. He has continued working on a book about sea ice, one that is as yet unfinished, and plays contra-bass with several orchestras.

          Heartland Institute NIPCC Climate Denier Craig Idso: “Climate Change Is Good For You”        

This is a guest post by Kert Davies, cross-posted with permission from Climate Investigations Center.

This week the Heartland Institute will release another chapter of its NIPCC, the “not the IPCC” document that will tell you the opposite of the main message that’s been coming from the prestigious IPCC, namely that climate change is a threat to security, food and mankind and especially a threat to the world's poor, along with ecosystems worldwide including coral reefs, polar regions, and the wildlife and myriad of creatures these ecosystems support.

Heartland Institute on the other hand, in its NIPCC “Climate Change Reconsidered II: the Biological Impacts” document, will say that climate change is good for the world, will have a net benefit for both plants and human health. This is the latest line run by right wing think tanks like Heartland, the coal industry’s ACCCE coalition, Peabody Coal, the American Legislative Exchange Council, and echoed across the blogosphere by climate deniers.

This set of messaging and all 'reports' to back this line, all appear to be coming from one organization, the Center for the Study of Carbon Dioxide and Global Change, and specifically from its chairman and former president, Craig Idso, one of the NIPCC’s lead authors, who has been arguing the same “C02 is beneficial” line for nearly 20 years, along with his father, Sherwood Idso.

Background

Craig Idso, his father Sherwood B. Idso, and brother Keith Idso, founded Arizona-based organization in 1998.

The Center's claimed mission is to “separate reality from rhetoric in the emotionally-charged debate that swirls around the subject of carbon dioxide and global change.” Its main publication is CO2 Science, a weekly magazine that features articles questioning the science verifying man-made climate change and its impacts.

In 2012, leaked documents from the Heartland Institute revealed that they were paying Craig Idso $11,600 a month for his NIPCC work.  We do not know how much Idso has been paid since that time, or prior.

The organization’s total funding peaked in 2009 at $1.5 million a year. Funders have included ExxonMobil (total, $100,000 since 1998), Donors Trust, Sarah Scaife Foundation and a number of other right wing funders. See Conservative Transparency for a recent (but not full) breakdown. The Center's IRS 990’s are here at Citizen Audit.

Publications produced by Craig Idso, with members of C02Science,org:

After founding the organisation, Idso got his PhD in geography at Arizona State University under the tutelage of one of the very early climate deniers employed by the fossil fuel industry, Robert C Balling Jr.

More resources at DeSmogBlog:  Craig Idso; Sherwood Idso

Idso, the Greening Earth Society and the Western Fuels Association

Robert Balling, Idso's mentor, was one of the leading scientists paid by the Greening Earth Society, the climate science-denying front group created by the Western Fuels Association, one of the first and earliest coal industry groups funding the denial of climate change. But the coal industry's line was not 'climate denial' but 'climate change is good for you'.  The Western Fuels Association is a cooperative of utilities and power companies supplying coal from the Powder River Basin in the western U.S.

Robert Balling was one of the seven scientists deployed by Western Fuels in the 1990s to challenge the prevailing consensus in climate science. Other names included some who are still on the core climate denial team today: Willie Soon and Patrick Michaels.

It was the Greening Earth Society for which Craig and Keith Idso penned a paper in 1995: “The Greening of the American West: The Atmosphere’s Rising CO2 Concentration Is Stimulating Woody Plant Growth in the U.S. Forests, Grasslands, and Deserts.”

Idso, Fred Palmer and Peabody Coal

From its inception, the Chair and CEO of the Western Fuels Association and the Greening Earth Society was Fred Palmer, who was also a registered lobbyist for the Western Fuels Association, a coalition of utility and coal companies.

Palmer is now the Senior Vice President of Government Relations at Peabody Energy (Peabody Coal). (Guardian backgrounder 2011), and was in the media in 2010 leading the charge for “green coal.”  He chaired the World Coal Association from 2010 to 2012.   Peabody is behind the recent climate denial hub “Advanced Energy for Life” campaign, working with Burson Marsteller as revealed by Climate Investigations Center.

From 2001-2002, Craig Idso served as Director of Environmental Science at Peabody Energy in St. Louis, MO.  This was to set up the long relationship with the company that continues to this day.

Idso and ACCCE Tout the Social Benefits of Carbon

The American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity (ACCCE) is an industry group promoting coal, of which Peabody coal is a key corporate member.

There is a major fight heating up at the State and Federal level on how we set what the government calls the Social Cost of Carbon, a metric calculated by the Government on the harm carbon (C02) does the economy, to our health and to the planet. These social costs range from the medical bills and lost workdays (when a mother has to take her asthmatic child to the hospital), all the way to the impact of sea level rise on coastal communities.

In 2013, the EPA recalculated the social cost of carbon and increased the figure to  $35 per metric ton, up from $21. 

ACCCE and Peabody Coal retaliated by questioning why the Obama EPA didn’t included analysis of the benefits of CO2, enhancing agriculture, for instance.

As part of this argument, ACCCE released a report in January, entitled “The Social Costs of Carbon. No, the Social Benefits of Carbon” claiming the government is vastly underestimating the social benefits of coal as well as the benefits from the carbon dioxide pollution produced by burning that coal, including enhancing photosynthesis and agricultural productivity. DeSmogBlog has more details.

Footnotes of the report reveal ACCCE commissioned Craig Idso to undertake a study that appears to be a rehash of the work he has done for 20 years.  Idso's contracted study, titled “The Positive Externalities of Carbon Dioxide,” which makes up a large part of Chapter III of the ACCCE “Social Benefits” report.

Idso and ALEC

Idso’s “benefits of C02” was also a topic at the 2011 American Legislative Exchange Council Annual meeting. According to Sourcewatch, he spoke at a workshop of state legislators that was to be titled “Warming Up to Climate Change: The Many Benefits of Increased Atmospheric CO2.” The title was later changed to “Benefit Analysis of CO2”.

Idso was joined in that workshop by two other speakers and fellow climate skeptics, Roger Helmer and Robert Ferguson.[8]

ALEC has also used that same “CO2 is beneficial” line in submissions to the EPA.  

Idso told the audience that we “should let CO2 rise unrestricted, without government intervention”, a very different recommendation than that emanating from the IPCC and the vast majority of the world's climate scientists.

          Heartland Institute        

The Heartland Institute

Background

The Heartland Institute is a Chicago-based free market think tank and 501(c)(3) charity that has been at the forefront of denying the scientific evidence for man-made climate change. The Heartland Institute has received at least $676,500 from ExxonMobil since 1998 but no longer discloses its funding sources. The Union of Concerned Scientists found (PDF) that “Nearly 40% of the total funds that the Heartland Institute has received from ExxonMobil since 1998 were specifically designated for climate change projects.” [1]

David Padden founded The Heartland Institute in 1984 and served as its Chairman between 1984 and 1995, co-chairing with Joseph Bast. Padden was also one of the original members of the Board of Directors of the Cato Institute. Padden, a Chicago, IL-based investment banker and then owner of Padden & Company, passed away in October 2011. [13]

Padden also served on the original Board of Directors of another organization founded that year, Citizens for a Sound Economy, which later split into two groups, FreedomWorks and Americans for Prosperity (AFP). The Cato Institute and both of these organizations received their initial seed money from Koch Industries. [14]

According to a July 2011 Nature editorial,

“Despite criticizing climate scientists for being overconfident about their data, models and theories, the Heartland Institute proclaims a conspicuous confidence in single studies and grand interpretations… . makes many bold assertions that are often questionable or misleading. … Many climate skeptics seem to review scientific data and studies not as scientists but as attorneys, magnifying doubts and treating incomplete explanations as falsehoods rather than signs of progress towards the truth. … The Heartland Institute and its ilk are not trying to build a theory of anything. They have set the bar much lower, and are happy muddying the waters.” [15]

2012 Heartland Document Leak

In 2012, leaked documents revealed some of the Heartland Institute's initiatives and climate change strategy including a tailored high school curriculum. As reported at the New York Times, (“Leak Offers Glimpse of Campaign Against Climate Science”) the Heartland Institute would have help from the Charles G. Koch Foundation to “cast doubt on the scientific finding that fossil fuel emissions endanger the long-term welfare of the planet.”  

The documents also discussed “Operation Angry Badger,” which the New York Times described as “a plan to spend $612,000 to influence the outcome of recall elections and related fights … in Wisconsin over the role of public-sector unions.” [2], [3]

Heartland has promoted itself using a partial quote from The Economist that describes Heartland as “the world's most prominent think-tank promoting scepticism about man-made climate change.” However, the full paragraph in The Economist's 2012 article provides a more complete picture: “The Heartland Institute, the world's most prominent think-tank promoting scepticism about man-made climate change, is getting a lot of heat.”

Heartland lost an estimated $825,000 in expected donations, a number of directors and almost its entire branch in Washington, DC shortly after putting up a billboard comparing those who believed in man-made global warming to the Unabomber Ted Kaczynski. At its annual meeting in Chicago, the institute's president, Joseph Bast, said Heartland had 'discovered who our real friends are.' The 100-odd guests who failed to show up for the '7th Climate Conference' were not among them.” [4], [5]

Heartland Institute and Tobacco

In the 1990s, the Heartland Institute worked with the tobacco company Philip Morris to question the science linking second-hand smoke to health risks, and lobbied against government public health reforms. Heartland continues to maintain a “Smoker's Lounge” section of their website which brings together their policy studies, Op-Eds, essays, and other documents that purport to “[cut] through the propaganda and exaggeration of anti-smoking groups.” [6]

In a 1998 op-ed, former Heartland president Joe Bast claimed that “moderate” smoking doesn't raise lung cancer risks, and that there were  “few, if any, adverse health effects” associated with smoking. In a fundraising letter to Phillip Morris, Bast wrote to a Phillip Morris executive  that “Heartland does many things that benefit Philip Morris’s bottom line, things that no other organization does.” Later, in 2014 Bast denied that he had claimed cigarettes were not harmful, until confronted with his own op-ed. [7], [182], [8]

Roy Marden, past Corporate Affairs Policy Analyst and Manager of Industry Affairs at Philip Morris, served as a board member at the Heartland Institute from 1996 until 2008. According to Heartland, “The public health community's campaign to demonize smokers and all forms of tobacco is based on junk science.” Joseph Bast, current President and CEO, was a strong defender of RJ Reynolds brand Camel's “Joe Camel” campaign, which some have argued (here, and here, for example)  targeted younger children. [9], [10], [11], [12]

Incoming President Tim Huelskamp

In June, 2017, The Heartland Institute announced Kansas Rep. Tim Huelskamp would be replacing Joe Bast as president, to begin working starting July, 2017. Bast said he would remain with Heartland as CEO until some time in 2018. [182]

Huelskamp is former chairman of the Tea Party Caucus and a member of the far-right House Freedom Caucus. Huelskamp maintains a lifetime score of 5% with the League of Conservation Voters, with a score of 0% in 2016. A full list of legislation sponsored or cosponsored by Huelskamp is available at Congress.gov. According to his voting record tracked at OnTheIssues, Huelskamp has consistently voted against any legislation that would combat fossil fuel emissions or climate change. [183], [184], [185], [186]

According to data from OpenSecrets, Huelskamp's top donor is Koch Industries and he has received the highest lifetime campaign contributions from the Oil and Gas industry, totally over one-quarter of a million dollars. Below are career totals added up by OpenSecrets. [187], [188]

Tim Huelskamp also a signatory to Americans for Prosperity's “No Climate Tax” pledge. The pledge reads as follows:[189]

“I, ________________, pledge to the American people that I will oppose any legislation relating to climate change that includes a net increase in government revenue”

He also told HuffPost that he didn't believe that climate change was “settled “science.” [190]

“I don’t think there’s a scientific consensus on that,” Huelskamp said. “If you want to print that life begins at conception, that’s settled science.”

Stance on Climate Change

“Probably two-thirds of the warming in the 1990s was due to natural causes; the warming trend already has stopped and forecasts of future warming are unreliable; and the benefits of a moderate warming are likely to outweigh the costs.

“Global warming, in other words, is not a crisis.” [16]

“You may also know us from our work exposing the shoddy science and missing economics behind the global warming delusion. Our videos, books, studies, and international conferences changed the debate and led to the defeat of 'cap and trade.'” [17]

“Some environmentalists call for a 'save-the-day' strategy to 'stop global warming,' saying it is better to be safe than sorry. Such a position seems logical until we stop to think: Immediate action wouldn't make us any safer, but it would surely make us poorer. And being poorer would make us less safe.” [18]
“Unfortunately, global warming is an issue that is well suited to political demagoguery, which can be defined as pandering to misinformed voters and promising unrealistic solutions. Since opinion polls indicate a majority of the public believes warming is happening, politicians might think the safe strategy is to say 'I believe global warming is a serious problem and I support measures to reduce global warming pollution by supporting renewable fuels and energy efficiency.' Such politicians should be 'outed' for claiming to be smarter than scientists who have studied climate for many years and for using scare tactics to win elections.” [19]
“There is no consensus about the causes, effects, or future rate of global warming.” [20]

Funding

501(c)(3) Charitable Status

According to Heartland in 2011, “Approximately 1,800 supporters support an annual budget of $6 million. Heartland does not accept government funding. Contributions are tax-deductible under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.” As of June 2015, that number has increased to 8,300 supporters, (budget remains listed at $6 million). [21], [22]

Computer scientist John Mashey filed a complaint in 2012 with the IRS questioning Heartland's charitable status: 

“I believe there was a massive abuse of 501c(3),” Mashey said. “My extensive study of these think tanks showed numerous specific actions that violated the rules – such as that their work is supposed to be factually based. Such as there was a whole lot of behavior that sure looked like lobbying and sending money to foreign organizations that are not charities.” [23]

Mashey's 2012 report on the Heartland Institute (see PDF) also examines the finances and actions of other organizations including the Science and Environmental Policy Project (SEPP), and the Center for the Study of Carbon Dioxide and Global Change (CDCDGC).

According to his report (p. 39), the Heartland Institute has received roughly $395,000 from the tobacco company Philip Morris.

Heartland no longer reveals their individual donors, they explain, because “listing our donors in this way allowed people who disagree with our views to accuse us of being 'paid' by specific donors to take positions in public policy debates, something we never do. After much deliberation and with some regret, we now keep confidential the identities of all our donors.” [24]

Greenpeace's ExxonSecrets reports that the Heartland Institute has received $676,500 from ExxonMobil since 1998. Greenpeace also reports that Heartland received at least $55,000 from Koch Industries. [25], [26]

The Heartland Institute's leaked 2012 Fundraising Plan states that “The Charles G. Koch Foundation returned as a Heartland Donor in 2011. We expect to ramp up their level of support in 2012 and gain access to the network of philanthropists they work with.”

However, the Foundation since released the following statement: “… the Charles Koch Foundation provided $25,000 to the Heartland Institute in 2011 for research in healthcare, not climate change, and this was the first and only donation the Foundation made to the institute in more than a decade. The Foundation has made no further commitments of funding to Heartland.” [29]

Donors Capital Fund/DonorsTrust

Donors Capital Fund (DCF) and its partner organization DonorsTrust allow donors to fund organizations anonymously. They appear to be a spinoff of the Philanthropy Roundtable, a group run by Whitney Ball, who also launched DonorsTrust.

The Heartland Institute has received large anonymous donations through DCF and DonorsTrust, with a combined total of at least $15,391,794.

See p. 58 of the 2012 Mashey Report for more details.John Mashey also covers DCF on page 65 of his 2012 report. According to DCF's website, “Donors Capital Fund is an IRS-approved, 501(c)(3), 509(a)(3) supporting organization that is associated with DonorsTrust, a public charity and donor-advised fund formed to safeguard the charitable intent of donors who are dedicated to the ideals of limited government, personal responsibility, and free enterprise.”


DonorsTrust refers clients to Donors Capital Fund if they expect to open donor-advised funds of over $1,000,000. [30]

El juego secreto de Donald Trump


Este hombre controvertido parece que no sabe a qué juega. Primero acusó a China de jugar chueco para posteriormente pedir disculpas y suplicar un acuerdo comercial geoestratégico de buenos amigos.

Comenzó rompiendo la regla no escrita de "una sola China", hasta entonces respetada por Washington, con su llamada a la presidenta de la provincia rebelde China de Taiwán. Pero hoy mismo, a través de una carta enviada al presidente chino, Xi Jinping, reconoce que Taiwán es parte de China. En la misma misiva pide negociar un acuerdo comercial "benéfico" para ambos países.

Eso sólo es un ejemplo de su doble juego, por un lado amenaza y por el otro negocia, claro, si se ve en ventaja presiona aún más hasta doblegarte, pero con China no pudo y tuvo que humillarse hasta el punto de pedir perdón y clemencia.

Este sujeto se cree un excelente negociador y empresario, por eso a los demás países los ve como adversarios y víctimas a quien esquilmar. Y mucha gente le compra ese cuento, pero la realidad es que no es así, este individuo NO es un buen empresario y la prueba está en que muchas de sus empresas se fueron a quiebra, incluyendo sus casinos, solo que se amparó a ciertas reglas cuestionables de la ley mercantil estadounidense, y es así como pudo salvar algunas de ellas a través de subsidios y condonación de impuestos, además de que recurrió a préstamos bancarios que aún adeuda.

Pero su doble juego va más allá de sólo negociar acuerdos comerciales y disputas territoriales de terceros pero que directamente benefician a algunos sectores de la industria estadounidense, cómo la industria del petróleo y de las armas. Donald Trump va mucho más allá, él busca beneficiar sobre todo a la gran banca internacional asentada en Wall Street y la City de Londres.

Eso queda bastante claro si consideramos su último decreto que tiene por objeto derogar la ley Dodd-Frank, un objetivo perseguido por muchos años por la élite bancaria e industrial estadounidense; Esta era una ley que impedía las prácticas especulativas financieras de los grandes bancos, así como la posibilidad de otorgar créditos a instituciones o personas de dudosa reputación crediticia. Dos situaciones que llevaron a la crisis financiera del 2008 y que propiciaron la creación de la mencionada ley, para impedir se volviese a dar una situación similar.

La quiebra de los grandes fondos de inversión fue la ruina para muchos pensionados y para el sistema de salud pública de los EEUU, pues esos fondos administraban los fondos de pensión de los trabajadores jubilados y al haber invertido ese dinero en swap, es decir, en derivados financieros que no son otra cosa que inversiones especulativas, ese dinero se perdió en muchos casos, o fue absorbida la perdida por el Estado con los famosos rescates bancarios, lo que llevo al recorte en el gasto público; y es por eso que el sistema de salud público se tuvo que privatizar, y es por eso que ahora la edad de jubilación es superior, con toda la intensión de eliminarla u obligar a la gente a trabajar casi hasta su muerte, para así no tener que pagar pensiones. Algo similar se podría decir de los demás países en el mundo. Y esas cosas pueden volver a suceder con la eliminación de la ley Dood-Frank

Pero una vez Trump haya terminado por anular la ley Dood-Frank, los grandes bancos volverán a las mismas prácticas que originaron la última gran crisis financiera, y como entonces, una vez sea imposible cobrar los préstamos otorgados a individuos y empresas financieramente insolventes, la factura se la pasarán al pueblo, es decir, su “deuda tóxica” el gobierno se las comprará y entonces sus balances financieros rojos pasaran a los balances financieros del Estado, es decir, se volverá deuda pública.

Eso quedó bastante claro al considerar que casi todo el gabinete de Trump dedicado a la planeación de la economía estadounidense son ex miembros de Goldman Sachs o ex miembros de la industria petrolera. Entre ellos tenemos a Rex Tillerson ex CEO de la petrolera Exxon Mobil nombrado como secretario de estado, Gary Cohn ex gerente general de Goldman Sachs nombrado como líder en jefe del comité ejecutivo del consejo económico nacional, Steve Mnuchin un ex directivo de Goldman Sachs nombrado secretario del tesoro, Wilbur Ross ex banquero de los Rothschild nombrado como secretario de comercio, y finalmente su funcionario estrella y asesor principal, el racista y supremacista blanco Stephen Bannon un ex Goldman Sachs nombrado como jefe del consejo de seguridad nacional.

Pero esta vez ni el mismo gobierno podrá hacer frente al problema, pues los bancos centrales están actualmente en dificultades financieras, sino que en números rojos, entonces, la única institución internacional que podrá hacer frente al problema será el Fondo Monetario Internacional, por consiguiente, ellos comprarán la deuda toxica de los bancos centrales a través de una mega “expansión cuantitativa”, es decir, una emisión masiva de dinero fiat que será prestado a los bancos centrales, ósea, todo el mundo pasará a deberle al FMI y al Banco Mundial, con lo que las condiciones estarán dadas para implantar el Gobierno Global, pues si el FMI se convierte en acreedor de todas las naciones del planeta estas estarán sujetas a sus condiciones, en otras palabras, tendrán que hacer lo que el gobierno mundial les ordene, entregando con ello su soberanía a ese gobierno planetario.

Pero el dinero del FMI no es otro que los derechos especiales de giro o DEG, que no son otra cosa que una cesta de divisas internacionales, ósea, son “billetes” respaldados por un conjunto de monedas de los países más fuertes del planeta, esas monedas son el Yuan, el Dólar, el Yen, el Euro y la Libra esterlina.

Pero si consideramos que Trump tiene entre sus objetivos devaluar al Dólar estadounidense por considerarlo “sobrevalorado” y, por consiguiente, una desventaja para los productos estadounidenses en el comercio internacional, será inevitable que su dominio en los DEG desaparezca en favor del Yuan chino. Esa es la razón del porque Trump pidió perdón a los chinos y de porque pidió hacer las paces con ellos.

Pero eso no es más que una estrategia de Trump, o de los que gobiernan detrás de él, para evitar un colapso incontrolable de la economía estadounidense; lo que él quiere es un derrumbe controlado y no explosivo. En pocas palabras, está consciente de que el fin del imperio yankee es inevitable y por eso le está pasando la batuta a China de forma ordenada y pacífica.

Pero claro, no es que China se vaya a convertir en amo y señor del mundo, en realidad el amo y señor va ser el FMI, pero el FMI será controlado por China a través del Yuan al convertirse la moneda china en la moneda predominante de la cesta de divisas internacionales de la institución.

¿Y quién controla la Reserva federal de los EEUU?, pues los grandes bancos de Wall Street; en realidad la FED son ellos mismos. ¿Y quién controla al FMI? Pues ellos también, porque al controlar casi todos los bancos centrales del mundo controlan el FMI también. ¿y quién controla el banco central chino? Pues ellos también, los Rothschild; por eso es que casi todo su oro lo están trasladando a China.

Entonces, si Trump deroga la ley Dood-Frank es para darle plena libertad de acción a sus amos, es decir, a los bancos de los Rothschild como lo son Goldman Sachs y JP Morgan, pues según él, esa ley impone muchas trabas a la inversión capitalista al impedir que se otorguen créditos fácilmente, pero en realidad lo que él quiere, y sus amos, es tener total libertad para maniobrar y provocar una nueva crisis económica y que como consecuencia de esa crisis suceda todo lo descrito anteriormente.

Ese es el doble juego de Donald Trump, ESE ES SU PLAN SECRETO.



          Did Trump Launder Money for Putin?         
donald-j-trump-cafe-realdonald-trump-russia-has-never-tried-12137855.png
Is Putin's espousal of Christian values an act, and the conflict 
between Russia and the USA a charade?

According to David Livingstone,  Chabad is the original Illuminati, a front for the
Russian (i.e. Jewish) mafia. Trump has ties to Chabad both through
the Kushners  and business deals with Russian Jewish oligarchs linked to
tax evasion, embezzlement, money laundering and human trafficking.
David thinks the Russia Mafia is closely linked with the KGB and Putin. 
He suspects they are all run by Mossad.


Disclaimer- Like most of you, I like some things Trump has done or is attempting to do.
However, we need to know the truth about our "heroes." David Livingstone essay, which I recommend you read in full, raises the possibility that Trump is leading us on. 



"As James Henry indicated in The American Interest, "one of the most central facts about modern Russia: its emergence since the 1990s as a world-class kleptocracy, second only to China as a source of illicit capital and criminal loot, with more than $1.3 trillion of net offshore 'flight wealth' as of 2016."


Donald Trump, Chabad Lubavitch & the Oligarchs
by David Livingstone
(Excerpt by henrymakow.com)


The Russian (Jewish ) mafia is closely associated with Chabad-Lubavitch, a Hasidic Jewish movement. Although the Chabad Lubavitcher movement is often listed as a part of Orthodox Judaism, it has often been condemned as heretical by traditional Jews. Rabbi Eliezer Schach, 103; Leader of Orthodox in Israel.

Natan Sharansky, the Chairman of the Jewish Agency said that Chabad Lubavitch was an essential connector to Soviet Jewry during the Cold War.  Shimon Peres has stated that it's to Schneerson's credit that "Judaism in the Soviet Union has been preserved." Joseph Telushkin. Rebbe (Harper Collins, 2014), p. 566.

These Russian Chabad-Lubavitcher Jews composed a substantial portion of the country's notorious "oligarchs."

Close to 25% of the 200 richest people in Russia are Jewish, according to a report by Russian banking website lanta.ru. The report found that of the country's 200 billionaires, 48 are Jews  and own a combined net worth of $132.9 billion. Among the 48 Jews who made the list, 42 are Ashkenazi and together have a net worth of $122.3 billion, even though they comprise only 0.11% of the population . 

abramovitch.jpg
The wealthiest Ashkenazi is Mikhail Fridman, who has a net worth is $17.6 billion and is Russa's second richest man. The Ashkenazi billionaires include Viktor Vekselberg (net worth of $17.2 billion), Leonid Michelson (net worth of $15.6 billion), German Khan (net worth of $11.3 billion), Mikhail Prokhorov (net worth of $10.9 billion), and Roman Abramovich, left, (net worth of $9.1 billion). Source

As James Henry stated in The American Interest, "Since the 1990s, [Russia has emerged] as a world-class kleptocracy, second only to China as a source of illicit capital and criminal loot, with more than $1.3 trillion of net offshore 'flight wealth' as of 2016." 

For ordinary Russians, as noted, this was disastrous. But for many banks, private bankers, hedge funds, law firms, and accounting firms, for leading oil companies like ExxonMobil and BP, as well as for needy borrowers like the Trump Organization, the opportunity to feed on post-Soviet spoils was a godsend. This was vulture capitalism at its worst. [The Curious World of Donald Trump's Private Russian Connections.]

197067.jpg
A 2012 article in the Jerusalem Post titled "At Putin's side, an army of Jewish billionaires" mentioned three Russian-Jewish billionaire oligarchs in particular who are close to Putin: Mikhail Fridman, Moshe Kantor and Lev Leviev. Under Putin, the Hasidic Federation of Jewish Communities of Russia (FJCR) became increasingly influential within the Jewish community of Russia, partly due to the influence and support of businessmen close to Putin, notably Lev Leviev and Roman Abramovich. See "No love lost." and Cracked De Beers.

Leviev is an Uzbeki-born Israeli citizen and devout Chabad Lubavitcher. Known as the "King of Diamonds," Leviev has come under scrutiny by the US government and international media for both his partnership with a Chinese business group believed to have funded North Korea and his possible role in developing West Bank settlements.  "Trump and His Advisors Are Connected to a Self-Professed Friend of Putin"

Chris Hutchins, a biographer of Putin, describes the relationship between Putin and Abramovich as like that between a father and a favorite son. (Chabad Lubavitcher) Abramovich was the first person to originally recommend to Yeltsin that Putin be his successor. Richard Sakwa. The Crisis of Russian Democracy: The Dual State, Factionalism and the Medvedev Succession. (Cambridge University Press, 2011). p. 135. Abramovich is a chairman of the Federation of Jewish Communities of Russia (which is allied with Putin's administration), and donates money to the Chabad movement. M. Goldman.

ORGANIZED CRIME

Like the Oligarchs in Russia, Organized Crime is heavily Jewish...Chabad Jewish

Shortly before his death, former FSB officer Alexander Litvinenko claimed that Simeon Mogilevich,  allegedly had a "good relationship" with Vladimir Putin since the 1990s, and has contacts with al Qaeda to whom he sells weapons.

Trump's biggest Chabad links are via his infamous son in law Jared Kushner

In 2015, Trump's son-in-law and chief adviser Jared Kushner, who has strong ties with the Lubavitchers, purchased the former New York Times Building in Manhattan from Leviev. Kushner, who married to Trump's daughter Ivanka after she converted to Judaism, had become what the Times described as Trump's "de facto campaign manager." Quiet Fixer in Donald Trump's Campaign: His Son-in-Law, Jared Kushner. 

He was principal owner in his family's real estate company Kushner Companies, and of Observer Media, publisher of the weekly, on-line New York Observer. The Kushner's were friends with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, who stayed at their home in New Jersey, sleeping in Jared's bedroom.[77] 

Trump's foundation has donated thousands of dollars to Chabad institutions, and Ha'aretz also reported that the foundation of Jared's parents gave $342,500 to Chabad institutions and projects over a 10-year period.Report: Trump, Kushner foundations have donated thousands to Chabad. "Israel wasn't a political discussion for him; it was his family, his life, his people," said Hirschy Zarchi, rabbi at the Chabad House at Harvard, where Jared was a member. For Kushner, Israel Policy May Be Shaped by the Personal. ...

On January 27, 2017, the Kushners invited Cohn, Department of the Treasury appointee Steve Mnuchin and several members of the President's cabinet for a Shabbat meal, along with Rabbi Levi Shemtov, from the local Chabad-Lubavitch house, which is only a few blocks away from their home. 

Also attending were Department of Commerce pick Wilbur Ross and his wife Hilary Geary Ross, and Strategic Communications Director Hope Hicks. The Kushners break bread with Team Trump: Jared and Ivanka welcome several members of the President's cabinet for the first big Shabbat meal at their new DC home.

Shemtov heads the Central Committee of Chabad-Lubavitch Rabbis. Shemtov serves the daily governmental and diplomatic needs of the international Chabad-Lubavitch movement, flying to Buenos Aires, Moscow and other capitals. 

Shemtov is often at the White House, Pentagon, United States Department of State and other venues in official Washington, and maintains close relationships with numerous members of the US Congress, senior Administration officials and leaders in the international community, including a number of heads of state and government.

          "FrackNation" Part Two: The Koch Industries Ties That Bind        

Part one of the DeSmogBlog investigation of “FrackNation” - a film made in response to “Gasland 2” - honed in on the past track records and funding streams of co-directors Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney.

We revealed that Donors Trust/Donors Capital - the “dark money ATM of the right” - partially funded their first two films, “Mine Your Own Business” and “Not Evil, Just Wrong.”

We also revealed that “Not Evil,” a climate change denial documentary, was utilized by a partner of Americans for Prosperity (AFP) to push the Balanced Education for Everyone (BEE) campaign.

That campaign calls for a “balanced” scientific teaching of the climate change “controversy” and parallels ones pushed for via an American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) model bill, by the Discovery Institute, and by the Heartland Institute.

Yet, what about “FrackNation”? Who bankrolled it and are the screenings and is the tour really a grassroots endeavor? 

It might seem that way based on its marketing, but as Jean de La Fontaine once said, “Beware, so long as you live, of judging men by their outward appearance.”

Grassroots or Astroturf? Follow the Email List

Interested in where “FrackNation” and its film-making team are getting their funding from, I signed up for its email list. In so doing, I learned that Market Aces LLC runs it. 

“From the start, Market Aces had a vision to offer low-cost website development solutions to small businesses and a niche market within the political and non-profit sector – but only those who are dedicated to protecting the American Dream and freedom,” its website reads. 

Market Aces LLC shares an office with The Leadership Institute (LI). 

According to LI's website, it “teaches conservative Americans how to influence policy through direct participation, activism, and leadership.” Its website also explains that “since 1979, [it] has trained more than 119,000 conservative activists, leaders, and students.”

Playing by API's Employee Advocacy Playbook?

Beyond getting email list building help from one of the key “feeder” nodes in the right-wing network, it's also questionable how many of the funders of “FrackNation” were of the grassroots variety. As the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette explained, 

[T]he roster of “executive producers” who have donated at least $1 includes scores of energy industry associates. The filmmakers said Thursday they plan to return any donations given by “senior” workers in the industry, which they define as executives. 

Among those who donated money to the KickStarter campaign: “the director of an Ohio-based oil and gas outreach program and the head of external affairs at Cabot Oil and Gas, the company that's fought accusations of water contamination in Dimock, Pa., for the past several years,” according to the Post-Gazette.  

Within four weeks of the Kickstarter fundraising campaign's launch, “FrackNation” had already raised over $150,000, raising over $22,000 in the first two days of fundraising. 

Perhaps “FrackNation” is playing by the American Petroleum Institute's employee advocates' “corporate citizen” playbook.

In a presentation given at an industry PR conference attended by DeSmogBlog in Houston, TX titled, “Educating Employees On Key Issues To Encourage Brand Management Energy Nation: Empowering Employee Advocates,” API's Director of External Mobilization Tara Anderson explained how - in essence - to create an armada of fracking advocates from within the employee base of oil and gas corporations. 

“Employees are the best brand ambassador you can come by…The most important principle to remember is to create a culture of advocacy,” she said in Houston. “This is really a community that regularly communicates and engages in the political process. It gives them all the necessary tools and empowers them to get involved and make a difference.” 

This may explain why the film not only raised money with such rapidity, but also has full industry backing for its nationwide tour

“FrackNation” Tour's Americans for Prosperity Pitstops  

For an alleged grassroots-funded film, “FrackNation” has enjoyed robust support from Big Oil and other corporate interests in the first several months of its roadshow. Both Energy in Depth and the Marcellus Shale Coalition - for example - are also promoting the film.

“The film is a case of the good guys hitting a home run that changes the entire game,” exclaimed Energy in Depth in a Jan. 2013 review of the film. 

Former Big Tobacco lackey Grover Norquist - now head of Americans for Tax Reform (ATR)  - also wrote a favorable review of the film to coincide with the film's premiere on the Mark Cuban-owned AXS TV in Jan. 2013 and ATR's hosting of the filmmaker's for lunch.

Ezra Lavant of “Ethical Oil” infamy has also aided in promoting the film. “FrackNation” co-director Magdalena Segieda will speak on Levant's “Freedom Cruise” in August and he also had McElhinney and McAleer on his show in February.  

In Feb. 2013, Joint Landowner’s Coalition of NY Inc. (JLCNY) hosted two “FrackNation” screenings in upstate New York, both of which McAleer attended. Just three months later in May, JLCNY announced its new partnership with AFP. 

Later, in March, AFP-Michigan played host to a “FrackNation” screening, a fracking battleground state where the toxic process has yet to commence. In April and May, AFP–Illinois hosted a total of eight screenings of “FrackNation,” another state with an ongoing fracking battle. AFP-MT and the Montana Petroleum Association - a state-level API - also screened the film. 

Most recently to coincide with the launch of the grassroots launch of “Gasland 2,” McAleer has taken “FrackNation” on-tour to bird-dog it.

On May 22, AFP-Colorado hosted a “FrackNation” screening at the same time University of Colorado hosted a showing of “Gasland 2,” and the next “showdown of the century” - as the “FrackNation” promoters put it - will take place on May 31 in Santa Barbara, CA. Young America's Foundation will play host to the “FrackNation” Santa Barbara screening.  

AFP-Maryland also hosted a screening of “FrackNation” on June 2.  

“FrackNation” Screens at House Committee, Josh Fox Arrested in Hearing of Same Committee

“FrackNation” also screened at CPAC in March 2013 and in front of the U.S. House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology in Feb. 2013.   

“It’s important that politicians educate themselves about fracking. It’s the future of American energy,” McAleer wrote in an email promoting the Capitol Hill screening. “With all the lies and misinformation out there, we’re excited to bring the truth about fracking to Capitol Hill.” 

Dave Weigel of Slate reported that “around 40 Republican staffers and members of Congress made time for a private movie screening.”

Among those in the room, according to Weigel, was Committee Chair U.S. Rep. Lamar Smith (R-TX), a climate change denier who took $10,000 from Koch Industries and $83,750 from Big Oil for his 2012 electoral campaign.  

“He was glad to have these points made in an easily digestible way, on screen,” McAleer told Weigel of Smith's reaction to seeing the film. “People know there's something smelly about Gasland, but people are suspicious about how it smells.”

As a direct juxtaposition, “Gasland 2” director Josh Fox was arrested at this same Committee's hearing in Feb. 2012 while filming for his then-upcoming film for “unlawful entry.” Though he had a pass to do the filming during the hearing, he was was slapped with this charge anyway.

“This is a public hearing. I’m within my First Amendment rights, and I’m being taken out,” Fox calmly stated to those in the hearing room while being escorted out during his arrest. 

Independent Journalists? Oh, Really?

Then there's the big question: how do two so-called independent journalists afford to pay for a $1 million condo off the Pacific Ocean in Marina Del Rey, CA?

This condo was purchased by them in May 2010, according to property records matching the listed address for Hard Boiled Films LLC, the listed producer of “FrackNation.”

   

And though it's obvious from the filmmaker's track-records that they have ties to powerful right-wing upper-level circles, sources told DeSmogBlog that McAleer interviewed them under deceptive pretenses. 

McAleer's Interview Requests Under Misleading Pretenses

One of the featured interviewees in the film is Dimock, PA's Craig Sautner alongside his wife, Julie. The Sautners were interviewed for the first “Gasland” and had their water contaminated by Cabot Oil and Gas in 2008.

“Trees were cleared and the ground leveled to make room for a four-acre drilling site less than 1,000 feet away from their land,” an account in Vanity Fair explained. “The Sautners could feel the earth beneath their home shake whenever the well was fracked. Within a month, their water had turned brown. It was so corrosive that it scarred dishes in their dishwasher and stained their laundry.”

In an interview with DeSmogBlog, Sautner said McAleer approached him under misleading pretenses, claiming to be an anti-fracking filmmaker hoping to help out in Ireland's fracking fight. 

“I was hesitant at first to do the interview, but he begged us and we said 'okay.' Everything he ended up using in the video he took out of context. He had it all set up from the beggining of what he wanted to show and he wasn't going to show the truth,” Sautner told DeSmogBlog.

Victoria Switzer, another Dimock victim of Cabot interviewed for “FrackNation” who spent four hours speaking with McAleer in her house (her interview did not appear in the film), also expressed similar sentiments to DeSmogBlog.  

He called he assured me he was doing an unbiased documentary both sides of the issues. I think it is significant because it goes to his lying, his manipulation of the truth, and misrepresentation of his agenda. I never would have let him in my home if I knew what his agenda was. Later when I saw some of his other work I was sickened that this man sat at the table my husband built in the home that is now threatened by the industry he serves! 

McAleer mislead interviewees during the filming of “Mine Your Own Business,” too. Stephanie Roth - a 2005 recipient of the prestigious Goldman Environmental Prize and a grassroots activist who has helped in the anti-mining fight in Romania - was also approached by McAleer for an interview for that film.

The catch: he did so - according to one account - under a psudonym and Roth refused to speak to him because McAleer was uninterested in interviewing any of the local grassroots activists she suggested should be interviewed besides her.

Big Tobacco Player, Climate Changer Deniers Makes Film Apperances

“FrackNation” itself features numerous fossil fuel industry shills-for-hire, climate change deniers, as well as one former Big Tobacco apologist, all posing as “independent experts.” The roster of hired guns is robust: 

-Bruce Ames - Ames sits on the Advisory Board of Collegians for a Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT), a climate change denial, fossil fuel industry-funded group on college campuses nationwide. He also formerly sat on the Advisory Board for The Advancement of Sound Science Coalition (TASSC), created by Philip Morris, as explained in the book “Trust Us We're Experts” by Sheldon Rampton and John Stauber.

In the film, Ames compares the chemical compounds found in fracking fluid to those found in cabbage.

“If I gave you all of the long names of the chemicals in cabbage that give cancer to rats in high levels, you could get scared, but there's really no danger in cabbage,” he stated in the film. “If people say fracking's causing cancer, then they don't know what they're talking about.” 

-Robert Bryce - Bryce's analysis was also featured early-on in the film, though his fellowship at the Manhattan Institute Center for Energy Policy and the Environment - heavily funded by the oil and gas industry - goes unmentioned. Bryce was also interviewed extensively in the industry propaganda film, “Haynseville.” 

-James Delingpole - Delingpole is an infamous climate change denier and columnist for the UK Telegraph. In the film, Delingpole hints that the U.S. anti-fracking movement might be funded by Russia for geopolitical purposes. 

“In fact, I would say Russia is screwed if it can't export its gas,” Delingpole said in the film. “So, it really is very important for Russia that the shale gas revolution does not happen. It is also in Russia's interest to fund those environmental groups which are committed to campaigning against fracking. That's how it works.”

-Terry Engelder - Engelder is viewed by many as a shale gas industry spokesman. He is the co-founder of Appalachian Fracture Systems, a natural gas consulting firm and was interviewed in “Truthland,” a documentary made in response to “Gasland” by Energy In Depth. 

-Jon Entine - Entine is a visiting fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, which The Guardian revealed takes millions to deny climate change from, among others, ExxonMobil. He also has a fellowship at George Mason University, heavily funded by the Koch Brothers.

Mother Jones referred to Entine as an “agribusiness apologist” in a Feb. 2012 piece pointing to some his unsavory advocacy on behalf of multnational agribusiness corporation, Syngenta.   

-Bryan Shaw - Shaw serves as head of the Texas Center for Environmental Quality (TCEQ). He's also a notorious climate changer denier whose fellow climate change denying boss - TX Republican Gov. Rick Perry - took $5,204,795 from Big Oil before his 2010 electoral victory. Perry has already raised $671,069 in advance of his forthcoming 2014 electoral efforts.  

“Merchants of Doubt” At It Again

McAleer can best be described as a favorite corporate third-party advocate, a hired gun to sow seeds of doubt on the ecological impacts of fracking. 

“[Third party advocacy] offers camouflage, helping to hide the vested interest that lurks behind a message,” wrote Rampton and Stauber in “Trust Us We're Experts.” “Putting the same message in someone else's mouth gives it a credibility that it would not otherwise enjoy.”

Thus, while many critics write McAleer off as a convoluted goof ball, there's more to the story than originally meets the eye: it's the story of the Tobacco Playbook's redux and the stakes of the climate crisis couldn't be higher. 

In Dec. 1953, PR hegemon Hill and Knowlton formed the Tobacco Industry Committee for Public Information, also forming the Tobacco Institute in 1963. The U.S. Dept. of Justice would later say that “deceive[d] the American public about the health impacts of smoking.”

60 years later, more of the same. Hill and Knowlton now represents America's Natural Gas Alliance (ANGA), the unconventional oil and gas industry's lobbying tour de force. 

With influential news outlets ranging from The New York Times, Variety, New York Post, National Review, and the Associated Press all covering the film favorably, whoever is bank-rolling “FrackNation” understands how the dark arts of PR are utilized. That is, when “both sides” of a one-sided scientific debate are covered in a news story, the “merchants of doubt” always wins.

Credentials

  • B.F.A., University of Texas at Austin (1986). [1]

Background

Robert Bryce is an American author and journalist based in Austin, Texas. [17] He has regularly been cited as an “expert” on energy issues in the media, but has been under increased scrutiny after writing numerous articles in media outlets that did not disclose his ties to the fossil fuel industry. [16]

Many of Bryce's articles have been on the energy business. He spent 12 years writing for The Austin Chronicle. From 2006 to September 2010 he worked as the managing editor of the online publication Energy Tribune. [17]

From October 2007 to February 2008 he was a fellow at the Institute for Energy Research (IER). In April, 2010 he joined the Manhattan Institute as a senior fellow in its Center for Energy Policy and the Environment. [2], [17]

The Manhattan Institute is a policy think tank that has received significant funding from both ExxonMobil and Koch Industries. According to media transparency, the Manhattan Institute has been known to “obscure” science supporting man-made climate change. [3]

Bryce has been unwilling to answer questions about the funding the Manhattan Institute receives from the fossil fuel industry. [15]

Stance on Climate Change

“The science is not settled, not by a long shot. […] If serious scientists can question Einstein’s theory of relativity, then there must be room for debate about the workings and complexities of the Earth’s atmosphere. Furthermore, even if we accept that carbon dioxide is bad, it’s not clear exactly what we should do about it.” [4]

“On the science of global climate change, I'm an agnostic. I've seen Al Gore's movie, and I've read reports from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. I've also listened to the 'skeptics.' I don't know who's right.” [5]

Key Quotes

“[W]e should be cheering the news that coal use is rising. For it means that more people are escaping the darkness and joining the modern world.” [25]

”[…] the job [at the Manhattan Institute] gives me a platform where I can focus on the themes that I explored in both Gusher of Lies and Power Hungry: that the myths about “green” energy are largely just that, myths; that hydrocarbons are here to stay; and that if we are going to pursue the best “no regrets” policy with regard to energy, then we should be avidly promoting natural gas and nuclear energy.” [6]

“It’s time to move the debate past the dogmatic view that carbon dioxide is evil and toward a world view that accepts the need for energy that is cheap, abundant and reliable.” [4]

Key Deeds

May 15, 2016

Robert Bryce published an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal titled “An Ill Wind: Open Season on Bald Eagles“ criticizing new regulations put in place by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) governing the accidental harming of bald and golden eagles. According to Bryce, the FWS is “trying to make it easier for the wind industry to kill” eagles. [19]

On May 6, the blog Daily Kos predicted Bryce's piece, saying Bryce and the Journal would likely contribute a “fresh round of fossil fuel-penned pieces crying crocodile tears for birds” shortly after the FWS regulations were announced: [20]

“Bryce wrote op-eds attacking wind power in February, October and November 2013, which are all similar to one he wrote in 2009, and just like what he wrote in 2015. Since he already attacked wind power back in February of this year, one might think the WSJ editors wouldn’t want to go back to him for essentially a rerun of the same op-ed. But the WSJ has published over twenty of his pieces since 2009, all of which are either explicitly anti-wind or pro-fossil fuels,” Daily Kos writes.

Media Matters notes that Bryce's Op-Ed piece is “misleading”: [21]

“Bryce complained that the new rules would allow wind energy producers to kill or injure up to 4,200 eagles per year and hyped data showing that wind turbines were responsible for about 573,000 total bird deaths (not just eagles) in 2012. But as the Daily Kos piece explained, it is misleading to cite these figures without explaining that wind turbines are responsible for only 'about 3 percent of human-caused eagle deaths' and that other factors – including the oil and gas industry and climate change – are a much greater threat to birds than wind energy.”

May 4, 2016

Robert Bryce authored a Manhattan Institute report titled “What Happens to an Economy When Forced to Use Renewable Energy?” (PDF). [28]

Bonner R. Cohen promoted the new study at the Heartland Institute. He writes that policies to combat climate change in Europe “have led to soaring electricity costs for residential and commercial customers, leading the authors to recommend the United States reject similar policies.” [29]

“To avoid the kinds of results seen in Europe, U.S. policymakers at the federal and state levels should be required to do rigorous cost-benefit analyses before imposing renewable-energy mandates,” Robert Bryce said. “U.S. policymakers must also consider the impact higher energy costs will have on overall employment and industrial competitiveness.” [29]

February 7, 2016

Robert Bryce published an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal “attacking [Bernie] sanders' renewable energy plan,” reports Media Matters. [23]

In the op-ed, Bryce claimed that Sanders “better check with his Vermont constituents about the popularity of wind energy.” He adds, “Nowhere is the backlash [against wind energy] stronger than in Mr. Sanders's state.” [24]

According to Media Matters, Bryce's statement is not accurate: “ despite the presence of a vocal minority who oppose large-scale wind projects, support for wind energy development is actually very strong in the Green Mountain State.” They cite a 2014 poll by Fairbank, Maslin, Maulin, Metz & Associates for the Vermont Public Interest Research Group (VPIRG) that found 71 percent of Vermonters support building wind turbines along the state's ridgelines, while only 23 percent oppose wind energy development.  [23]

June 22, 2015

Robert Bryce wrote a column in the National Review titled “The Poor Need More Energy: What BP Knows and Pope Francis Doesn't,” where he  maintained that the best, low-cost energy source for developing countries is coal. [14]
 
According to Bryce, “[Pope Francis's] new encyclical on climate change, Laudato Si’ (Be praised), shows a shallow understanding of global energy use and, in particular, of how energy consumption is soaring among the people he claims to care most about: the poor.” 
“But if developing countries are going to prepare for possible changes in the climate, they will have to get richer so they can afford to deal with any calamities that may occur. And how will they get richer? The answer is obvious: by consuming more energy. And for countries throughout the developing world, the lowest-cost energy is still coal,” Bryce writes. [14]

February 25, 2014

Robert Bryce testified before the Senate Committee on the Environment and Public Works where he contends that “federally subsidized efforts that are being undertaken to, in theory, address climate change, are damaging America’s wildlife.” [26]

Bryce focused his attacks the wind industry: 

“Given the studies already done on wind energy’s deleterious impact on wildlife, combined with the 'energy sprawl' that will come with the industry’s continuing expansion, it is virtually certain that as the wind sector adds more turbines, more federally protected wildlife – including more bald eagles, an animal that has been on the Great Seal of the United States since 1782 – will be killed.[xl] And thanks to the production tax credit, taxpayers will be subsidizing the slaughter.

The question at hand is obvious: why are policymakers implementing an energy policy that is a known killer of wildlife in exchange for what are infinitesimally small reductions in carbon dioxide emissions?” [26]

October, 2011

An October 2011 Petition submitted by the Checks and Balances Project complained about Bryce, pointing to “a disturbing trend of special interests surreptitiously funding “experts” to push industry talking points in the nation’s major media outlets.” [7]

DeSmogBlog reported on this issue here, and here.

According to the letter, “pundits like Mr. Bryce have the right to share their views, but we believe media outlets have the responsibility to inform their readers of opinion writers’ true ties and conflicts of interest.”

It appears that an Op-Ed by Bryce titled “the Gas is Greener” which criticizes renewable energy including wind projects and reports to expose hidden costs and “deep contradictions” in the “renewable energy movement.” [8]

Signatories asked the New York Times to set the standard by revealing the ties of these “expertS” and ensuring readers get the full story.

New York Times editor Arthur S. Brisbane responded, dismissing the petition's request and saying that “I don’t think Mr. Bryce is masquerading as anything: experts generally have a point of view. And the Manhattan Institute’s dependence on this category of funding is slight — about 2.5 percent of its budget over the past 10 years. But the issue of authorial transparency is an important one, albeit one that isn't always simple.” [9]

August 11, 2011

According to SourceWatch, Bryce was a featured speaker at the 2011 American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) Annual Meeting at a workshop titled “Unconventional Revolution: How Technological Advancements Have Transformed Energy Production in the United States.”

The panel advocated the process of fracking for reaching unconventional gas reserves. Bryce has also published articles in favour of fracking and in one example where he presents the often-repeated industry claim that fracking poses “minimal risk” to groundwater.  He stressed that New York “can’t afford to be left behind in the shale revolution.” [18], [10]

In a June 13, 2011 piece published in the Wall Street Journal he wrote that the “shale revolution now underway is the best news for North American energy since the discovery of the East Texas Field in 1930.” [11]

May 12, 2010

Bryce wrote an Op-Ed in the New York Times revealing his opposition to the implementation of carbon capture technology. 

He was particularly critical of a senate energy bill introduced by John Kerry and Joseph Lieberman which would include incentives of $2 billion per year for carbon capture and sequestration.

Bryce wrote “That's a lot of money for a technology whose adoption faces three potentially insurmountable hurdles: it greatly reduces the output of power plants; pipeline capacity to move the newly captured carbon dioxide is woefully insufficient; and the volume of waste material is staggering. Lawmakers should stop perpetuating the hope that the technology can help make huge cuts in the United States’ carbon dioxide emissions.”

He also predicted public opposition to carbon dioxide sequestration areas, writing how “few landowners are eager to have pipelines built across their property. And because of the possibility of deadly leaks, few people will to want to live near a pipeline or an underground storage cavern. This leads to the obvious question: which members of the House and Senate are going to volunteer their states to be dumping grounds for all that carbon dioxide?” [12]

April 8, 2009

Wrote an article titled “Let Exxon Run the Energy Dept.” in The Daily Beast. The article is strongly critical of the Obama Administration which he claims is “working to marginalize America's single biggest sector, the sliver of the economy that produces our most essential commodities: gasoline, diesel fuel, jet fuel, coal (which provides about half of the country’s electricity) and natural gas.”

Bryce writes “the U.S. has never had a secretary of Energy who has actually drilled an oil well, built a nuclear power plant, or dug coal out of the ground. Indeed, actual experience in the energy business appears to be grounds for disqualification. This is stunning.”

In conclusion, Bryce suggests that maybe we should include more people representing the energy industry in government: “Maybe—just maybe—those energy companies aren’t so villainous after all. And here’s another wacky thought: Maybe—just maybe—we should have a few people in government who really understand how the energy business works.” [13]

          Accountability Moment: Manhattan Institute's Robert Bryce Squirms And Evades Question on Fossil Fuel Funding        

Robert Bryce from the fossil fuel industry-funded Manhattan Institute just can't bring himself to answer a simple question about the fossil fuel industry funding flowing into his group. Readers of DeSmogBlog may recall our previous coverage about Bryce's anti-clean energy attacks in the New York Times op-ed pages and elsewhere.

Citing the prime example of Robert Bryce's conflict of interest, I asked the Public Editor at the New York Times last year why the paper doesn't require its op-ed contributors to disclose their funding sources so that readers can make up their own minds about the potential bias of these contributors.

Since Bryce is typically only listed as a Manhattan Institute senior fellow, that doesn't let the reader know that his organization has received a significant amount of money from dirty energy interests including ExxonMobil and Koch Industries. That's an important factor in evaluating the rationale behind Mr. Bryce's bias against clean energy.

Watch below as Gabe Elsner, my friend at the Checks and Balances Project, asks Bryce the simple question about his funding from fossil fuel interests. 

Gabe explains: 

I asked Bryce if he had financial ties to the fossil fuel industry after his debate appearance before the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners conference on Monday. Not only did Bryce refuse to answer the question, he also launched into an angry, finger-pointing tirade saying that I’d “made up” the amount of fossil fuel support documented by Manhattan Institute records.

Watch the clip with Gabe's analysis embedded:


          Robert Bryce – The Media’s Industry-Funded Go-To Guy        

Robert Bryce, a fellow at the dirty industry-funded Manhattan Institute, is under increasing scrutiny as media outlets continue to use him as an “expert” on energy issues without disclosing his ties to the energy industry. DeSmogBlog’s Brendan DeMelle has written several pieces on Bryce’s connections to the industry, as well as how media outlets, including the New York Times, continue to allow Bryce to write op-eds on energy issues that are laden with fallacies without disclosing his conflict of interest.

From Brendan’s previous reports on Bryce’s New York Times piece:

Bryce penned an op-ed attacking renewable energy while promoting nuclear and fracked shale gas, with no disclosure in his byline about the Manhattan Institute’s fossil fuel clients. I offered Bryce's piece as an example in order to formally seek answers about the disclosure policy at the Times and whether it was adequate in light of the failure to disclose Bryce’s dirty energy backing.

Now Media Matters has done a fantastic job of detailing the numerous media outlets that are allowing the industry hack Bryce to pen his agenda-driven drivel, as well as uncovering where his group's funding is coming from:

Manhattan Institute Is Funded By ExxonMobil. According to ExxonSecrets.org, the Manhattan Institute has received $385,000 from Exxon since 1998, including $50,000 in 2010.

Manhattan Institute Has Received Funding From The Koch Family Foundations. The Manhattan Institute has received over $1.3 million total from the Claude R. Lambe Foundation and the David H. Koch Foundation over the years, both of which are associated with Koch Industries, an oil, gas and chemical corporation. From 2001 to 2009 (the most recent year for which data is available), the Lambe Foundation gave The Manhattan Institute $200,000 annually. The Lambe Foundation's board of directors is “comprised entirely of Koch family members, senior Koch executives, and staff who serve Koch foundations,” including the CEO of Koch Industries Charles G. Koch, according to Greenpeace.

In addition to the reporting of Media Matters, a website called TrueTies.org has taken a close look at Bryce's clear conflicts of interest and asked the New York Times to craft a policy of disclosure of conflicts of interest for its op-ed contributors.

Agenda-driven journalism is a growing problem in America, and without full disclosure from media outlets, viewers and readers have an almost impossible task of sorting the industry’s views from actual facts.

          Journalists Ask NYTimes To Set Disclosure of Conflicts Policy For Op-Ed Contributors        

Back in June, I wrote about my effort to seek answers from The New York Times public editor’s office regarding the paper’s lack of a policy for disclosure of possible conflicts of interest among op-ed contributors. In my query to the NYT, I specifically cited the example of Robert Bryce from the Manhattan Institute, a group funded by Koch Industries, ExxonMobil and other polluters to confuse the public about climate change and energy issues.

Bryce had penned an op-ed attacking renewable energy while promoting nuclear and fracked shale gas, with no disclosure in his byline about the Manhattan Institute’s fossil fuel clients. I offered Bryce's piece as an example in order to formally seek answers about the disclosure policy at the Times and whether it was adequate in light of the failure to disclose Bryce’s dirty energy backing.

I didn’t get a concrete answer from Public Editor Arthur Brisbane’s office – his assistant acknowledged that “this is a topic that interests due to the number of emails we receive from readers on it,” but rather than answer my questions or take action to highlight the policy oversight, he told me “We're going to keep your email on file in the event that we decide to tackle this issue in the future.”

With our attention at DeSmogBlog diverted in the ensuing months by the Keystone XL pipeline controversy, the ever-growing list of the Koch Brothers’ threats to decency and democracy, and other dirty energy issues to focus on, I felt that another group would be better suited to devote attention to the NYT disclosure matter.  I asked my friend Gabe Elsner at the Checks & Balances Project to take a look at my blog about Bryce and the failed efforts to get a satisfactory answer from the NYT Public Editor’s office.

Well, I’m grateful to Gabe for following through, since the issue is finally gaining some recognition, with the launch of TrueTies.org (designed by Checks and Balances Project) and a petition by 50 journalists echoing the call for The New York Times to lead the industry by creating a disclosure policy for op-ed contributors.

A few examples of the media coverage of the True Ties petition:

The Columbia Journalism Review: Journos Call For More Transparency at NYT Op-Ed Page

The Guardian: US journalists launch campaign for ‘op-ed transparency’

World Editors Forum: Transparency at the New York Times

As regular readers of DeSmogBlog know, especially readers of our president Jim Hoggan’s book Climate Cover-up, there is a cottage industry of dirty energy front group mouthpieces who use this tactic of placing op-eds without disclosing their funding conflicts – Bryce is not the only one failing to disclose his “True Ties” by a long shot. DeSmogBlog has raised dozens of examples of this front group media activity in both U.S. and Canadian news outlets, and beyond.

It’s a recurring problem that needs to be addressed in order for people to know the interests that lie beneath an innocent sounding group like the Manhattan Institute - which an unsuspecting reader might mistake for a great name for a cocktail club, or worse, a legitimate source of unbiased information.

The New York Times, well-respected for its journalistic integrity, is the perfect outlet to set the tone in the journalism industry by fixing this PR pollution with a simple disclosure policy requiring all op-ed contributors to reveal their funding sources.

Hopefully, the NYT will embrace this opportunity, which will help to rid industry propaganda from its influential opinion pages, and by extension, inspire other news outlets to follow suit.


          Manhattan Institute Op-ed Exemplifies Why NY Times Should Require Disclosure of Financial Conflicts        

The New York Times ran an op-ed last week by Robert Bryce of the Manhattan Institute, a group funded by Koch Industries, ExxonMobil and other polluters to confuse the public about climate change and energy issues. Robert Bryce goes to great lengths to portray solar and wind power as land-hogging energy choices. He suggests that fracked shale gas and nuclear are somehow more environmentally preferable energy options.

This is a common argument from Bryce, who had a similar pro-fracking op-ed in the Wall Street Journal this week, and who has emerged as one of the loudest of a growing cadre of critics of clean energy. Most of these critics are, not surprisingly, affiliated with “institutes” (i.e., front groups) that get money from the dirty energy industries that solar and wind are starting to disrupt.

Bryce’s argument was quickly debunked by the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA), which points out a number of factual errors and omissions in the Manhattan Institute representative's piece.  AWEA was correct to take on Bryce's misinformation and set the record straight. Climate Progress also picked apart Bryce's claims in detail.

But one important question remains - why does The New York Times print such misleading opinion pieces without revealing the clear conflict of interest that a Koch/Exxon-funded front group representative has on such matters? Did the Times’ even ask, and does it do so as a matter of standard practice? {C}
If not, the Times could quickly and easily implement and enforce a policy compelling such op-ed contributors to publicly state their financial conflicts of interest. After all, freelance contributors to the news side of the paper are held to such a standard. What's with the free pass that Bryce got?

The Times is well-regarded as one of the last bastions of journalistic integrity, which is why it’s so troubling to see the paper fail to enforce a reasonable standard of ethical disclosure on Bryce's prominent op-ed. The Times ought to provide readers with basic information about the conflicts of interest that a contributor might have.

This is about basic ethics, and doesn't even reach the level of asking the Times to actually verify facts in op-eds – a step that would inform readers about the blatant misrepresentations and distortions of fact made in propaganda pieces like Bryce's.

It's not difficult to see that his arguments that wind and solar renewable energy projects take up more land than fossil fuel and nuclear operations are preposterous.  Does anyone really believe Bryce's claim that wind turbines (which each have a very small physical footprint) are more land-intensive than, say, blowing the tops of hundreds of Appalachian mountains to extract coal, or the vast amounts of land swallowed by oil and gas infrastructure, including pipelines, oil rigs, pump stations, and the roads built specifically to move all that drilling equipment around?

If The New York Times had a policy requiring op-ed contributors to answer basic questions about their funding sources and conflicts of interest, perhaps readers wouldn't be misled by such pieces.

In this case, had the Times’ opinion page staff asked Bryce where his group the Manhattan Institute gets its funding, readers would learn that the groups gets a significant amount of money from dirty energy interests including ExxonMobil and Koch Industries.

How hard is that, really?

Dirty energy interests know they can game the papers, and that's why front groups like Bryce's Manhattan Institute and dozens of similar industry PR firms bother to masquerade as think tanks. It's a decades-old practice stretching all the way back to the call in the 1971 Powell Manifesto to start launching such groups.

By requiring op-ed contributors to disclose financial conflicts, direct or indirect, on the subject of their pieces, the Times would begin to unmask this cottage industry.

In order to set such a policy, the Times would need to look no further than the very standard it applies to its own news staff through its code of ethics:

“Masquerading. Times reporters do not actively misrepresent their identity to get a story. We may sometimes remain silent on our identity and allow assumptions to be made ­ to observe an institution's dealings with the public, for example, or the behavior of people at a rally or police officers in a bar near the station house. But a sustained, systematic deception, even a passive one … may be employed only after consultation between a department head and masthead editors.” [emphasis added]


The Times’ opinion page editors should apply the spirit of that standard on masquerading by asking a few direct questions of op-ed contributors like Bryce about their funding.

By failing to implement this simple standard, the Times enables the printing of industry propaganda on its influential opinion pages.

*Phone and email messages sent by DeSmogBlog to New York Times public editor Arthur Brisbane inquiring about this policy discrepancy have not been answered, but we will update this post when we hear from him.

          Apple and Exxon May Not Be So Different After All        

Apple and Exxon Mobil may not be so different, after all. The two seemingly disparate companies share more than nearly identical U.S. market-leading values of about $400 billion. Both are threatened by shrinking margins and the struggle to replace their precious wares. Exxon in various iterations has survived four times longer than Apple, but is just as vulnerable.

The mortality rate in technology is high. Rapid advances in hardware and software regularly buffet the sector. Firms rarely survive more than one wave of technology, leaving their intellectual property with a short shelf life. Energy companies are more durable. Exxon’s roots stretch back to 1870. Oil explorers in particular sit on supplies of a commodity that is hard to replace.

Investors are starting to worry that Apple will succumb to the industry’s life-cycle squeeze. After soaring past $650 billion, its market capitalization has tumbled by more than a third in the past five months. Rival smartphones are gaining ground on the iPhone, which accounts for more than half of Apple’s sales and an even greater slug of profit. Operating margins slipped five percentage points to 32 percent in the last full quarter. If price becomes the next battleground, they may slide further still. Apple will have to innovate anew to reverse the trend.

Exxon faces a similar dilemma. The Texas-based company must be increasingly creative to extract oil from rocks, ocean depths and frigid arctic wastes. That explains a 90 percent surge in capital spending since 2007, to about $40 billion annually. Even so, Exxon has barely replaced its reserves. It also must contend with an additional pressure that Apple doesn’t: government actions discouraging the use of oil and fostering more competitive substitutes. It’s a recipe for slimmer margins or, in an extreme case, extinction.

In that sense, Apple’s problems may be easier to solve. If it can develop a new blockbuster, like a TV that already is anticipated, investors could rediscover their enthusiasm for the company, valued at 10 times estimated 2013 earnings. Exxon trades at a similar multiple, though its problems are arguably less tractable, with easily available oil already tapped. Either way, Apple and Exxon find themselves strangely in the same boat.

          2012 May Be As Good As It Gets for Exxon        

2012 may be as good as it gets for Exxon Mobil. America’s largest oil company pumped out a near-record profit and its best earnings per share ever. But Exxon, like Chevron, is spending huge sums – almost $40 billion last year - to find and extract reserves. Holding output steady is tough enough. Unless oil prices jump, Exxon may have peaked.

The big boost to the bottom line for America’s two top oil titans didn’t come from their main exploration and production divisions, but from processing and refining. That’s because the oil and gas needed to run this side of the business was cheap and plentiful in the United States, driving down costs. That helped Exxon as a whole generate $44.9 billion of net income - within a whisker of 2008’s $45.2 billion record.

Topping this feat in the future won’t be easy. Earnings from its refining and chemical operations account for just a third of Exxon’s profit and a tenth of Chevron’s. What would move the needle is an improvement in their two main businesses - both companies suffered a decline in production last year despite years of escalating outlays.

Reversing that trend looks hard, though. Oil-rich nations are becoming more protective of their natural resources, so the likes of Exxon have to resort to drilling for more expensive oil trapped in rocks, the ocean depths or the frigid Arctic.

That requires spending much more money, which helps explain why Exxon’s capital spending has jumped by almost a quarter since 2010. Worse, in some instances costs are running ahead of expectations – by 10 percent at its oil-sands project in Canada, the company admitted on Friday. That’s a rare embarrassment for a company obsessed with operational discipline. Chevron’s spending, meanwhile, leapt by 17 percent last year - in large part due to ramping up its liquefied natural gas operations in Australia.

Getting its operations Down Under online should at least provide some relief for Chevron. Exxon, though, has no spurt in output in sight. Aggressive share buybacks may keep earnings-per-share performance high. But boosting net income will require higher oil prices. With global growth tepid, that looks too much for shareholders to hope for.

          Activist Exposes Hess as Latest Governance Villain        

An activist investor has exposed Hess as the latest governance villain in the energy patch. Hedge fund Elliott Associates reckons the U.S. oil company could be worth more than double its current $20 billion-plus value. But as at other energy groups, like Chesapeake Energy and SandRidge Energy, a too-cozy board has brought waste and strategic blunders.

Being a Hess director looks like a pretty safe job. Typically board members stick around 50 percent longer than the average for S&P 500 companies, according to Elliott. Thomas Kean, for example, has been a director for 23 years. Three other non-executive directors, including 82-year-old former U.S. Treasury Secretary Nicholas Brady, boast tenures approaching 20 years.

They don’t even offer industry expertise or much independence. Nobody on the Hess board has drilling experience outside the company, and only the three executive directors have any at all. Several directors also have connections to the founding family - from which Chief Executive John Hess, in situ for 17 years, hails - and its charity.

It’s no coincidence that Hess has a record of inefficient operations. It spends far more as a proportion of revenue on its exploration efforts than big rivals like Exxon Mobil. And Elliott reckons its wells in North Dakota’s Bakken shale cost about a third more to drill than those of its peers.

The CEO also looks overpaid considering the company’s performance. Over the past five years he has earned $96 million, according to Thomson Reuters data, making him well above averagely remunerated for his sector by Elliott’s analysis. Yet even after this week’s gains, Hess’s shares are down 30 percent over the same period, among the oil business laggards. Anadarko Petroleum, by contrast, is up 40 percent.

Hess has been doing some sensible housekeeping, like closing money-losing refineries. But it’s not enough. As at Chesapeake and SandRidge, shareholders are starting to challenge the complacent boardroom status quo. With some prime assets in areas like the Bakken and limited exposure to painfully low U.S. natural gas prices, there’s a case that the company could, or even should, have been among the star performers in its industry. New broom directors, like the five industry heavyweights put forward on Tuesday by Elliott, would make that more likely to happen.

          German courts to help OEM take last hurdle to switch to ZEV?        

A Stuttgart administrative court ruled on July 28 that authorities will have the right to impose an outright ban on diesel vehicles; presiding judge Wolfgang Kern and his colleagues called for urgent action, such as the introduction of a so-called "Blue Placard" which would effectively amount to driving bans for a part of vehicles in the city. The lawsuit filed by the non-governmental environmental and consumer protection organization Environmental Action Germany (DUH)  against the state government of Baden-Wuerttemberg, stated that measures to lower air pollution in its capital Stuttgart were insufficient. DUH  had sought a ban on such vehicles as  legal thresholds for nitrogen oxide levels had been regularly surpassed in areas affected by traffic congestion for years, following the decision by city policymakers of a less radical strategy to combat urban air pollution back in 2015. The DUH has also filed similar lawsuits in Dusseldorf, Aachen, Bonn and Cologne. North Rhine-Westphalia has referred a case to the Federal Administrative Court with the organization's consent in order to determine whether municipal governments are legally entitled to impose bans on diesel cars. The administrative court decided that  the protection of the  health of citizens in the hometown of carmakers Mercedes-Benz and Porsche over the rights and freedom of action enjoyed by owners of diesel cars. Several cities in Germany, including Munich, are currently considering bans following revelations that their air pollution levels were in breach of EU limits. German carmakers are at the center of an ongoing international scandal in which they stand accused of having installed illegal software in diesel vehicles to falsify emissions levels during test settings. Just two day before on July 26, 2017 three Californian communities  San Mateo and Marin Counties, coastal communities in northern California, and Imperial Beach, a city in San Diego County, have filed complaints against 37 “carbon majors”, including Shell, Chevron, Statoil, Exxon and Total, seeking compensation for the current and future costs of adapting to sea level rises linked to climate change. They claim greenhouse gas emissions from the fossil fuel companies’ activities over the last 50 years have locked in substantial sea level rises, which will cause billions of dollars’ worth of damage to properties and businesses, as well as endangering lives. On August 2, the German government will hold a "diesel summit" with the representatives of the German automotive industry in order to discuss how to lower nitrogen oxide pollution caused by traffic. Although manufacturers including Volkswagen, Mercedes-Benz and Audi have announced their intention to recall and upgrade millions of vehicles, Barbara Hendricks, the German Minister for the Environment, warned that the car industry was at a "turning point" and outright diesel bans were still on the table.

Didn't see this coming more southern states wasting money over something they know will be struck down

http://www.cnn.com/2016/06/27/politics/supreme-court-abortion-texas/index.html

In a dramatic ruling, the Supreme Court on Monday threw out a Texas abortion access law in a victory to supporters of abortion rights who argued it would have shuttered all but a handful of clinics in the state.

The 5-3 ruling is the most significant decision from the Supreme Court on abortion in two decades and could serve to deter other states from passing so-called "clinic shutdown" laws.
In joining with the liberal justices, perennial swing vote Justice Anthony Kennedy helped deliver a victory to abortion rights activists and signaled the court's majority in their favor could continue regardless of the presidential election and the filling of the empty seat on the bench left by the death of conservative Justice Antonin Scalia.
Justice Stephen Breyer wrote the majority opinion, which was joined in full by Kennedy. Breyer wrote that despite arguments that the restrictions were designed to protect women's health, the reality is that they merely amounted to burdening women who seek abortions.
"There was no significant health-related problem that the new law helped to cure," Breyer wrote. "We agree with the District Court that the surgical-center requirement, like the admitting-privileges requirement, provides few, if any, health benefits for women, poses a substantial obstacle to women seeking abortions, and constitutes an "undue burden" on their constitutional right to do so."


I saw it coming. Good ruling by the court. If you're going to have SCOTUS make up a private right, at least they are consistent in protecting that right against made up medical regulations designed to eliminate it.

No, there won't.

There was no medical benefit to the proposed laws.


Using regulations to shut down legally provided services based on political agendas and subjective personal morals is wrong and not the proper usage of government. That was the problem with the Texas law. The idea that abortion clinics should have stronger relationships with local hospitals and more oversight isn't objectively a bad idea and wouldn't harm anyone. If state governments are going to be responsible for regulating health care then they need to establish and enforce standards of care and operation. The introduction of such standards may have a negative impact on the availablity of services initially as adjustments are made but if the standards are created by knowledgable people in a reasonable manner and the services are still in demand then the standards shouldn't pose much of an obstacle to making them widely available to the public.

WOW! That's desperate!


How is it desperate? Tom Ridge is quoted in the article as saying that preventing people on the No Fly List or the Terror Watch List wouldn't have prevented the Orlando night club shooting because the person who did the shooting wasn't on either list. That is factually correct.



No law is going to stop a determined terrorist or criminal. I'm not naïve and accept that. But using that logic as reason for the stone walling of sensible Gun Legislation which will work to cut down on legal access to individuals who shouldn't have access...and I'm a gun owner...is pathetic!


How is the proposed gun legislation "sensible"? Do you have any data on how many, if any, mass shootings or gun homicides have been commited by anyone on the No Fly List or Terror Watch List? Do you have any data on how a person gets placed onto the No Fly List or Terror Watch List? Do you have any data on how many people on those lists alreadly lawfully own firearms? Do you have any data on how a person can appeal being on either list, if anyone has successfully appealed and how many people have been removed for the list?

Do you think all US citizens are entitled to the right to Due Process?

Are you ok with the US govt not having enough evidence to charge a US citizen with any crime but still labelling that person as "dangerous" and violating their constitional rights?


You're actually asking how is gun legislation "sensible" when it seeks to prohibit gun ownership to individuals deemed to dangerous to get on an airplane and a threat to aviation(No Fly List) or are suspected of some involvement with terrorism(Terror Watch List)? Are you kidding?

Here's some stats for you...In a 2010 report, the Government Accountability Office noted that "Membership in a terrorist organization does not prohibit a person from possessing firearms or explosives under current federal law," and individuals on the No Fly List are not barred from purchasing guns. According to GAO data, between 2004 and 2010, people on terrorism watch lists—including the No Fly List as well as other separate lists—attempted to buy guns and explosives more than 1,400 times, and succeeded in 1,321 times (more than 90 percent of cases).

Individuals on the Terrorism Watch List, et al, succeeded in purchasing guns and explosives 1,321 in just the above mentioned 6 year period. Sleep well tonight, pookie.


Why wouldn't I sleep well tonight? That information is 6 years out of date and nothing has happened in that intervening time to make me sleep any less well. Again, do you have any data on what is required for the govt to put people on those lists in the first place? If the govt can't find enough evidence to charge anyone on the list with any crimes why are they dangerous? How many acts of terrorism have been committed by US citizens who are on the No Fly List or the Terror Watch List?

If the people on the No Fly List are dangerous why are they allowed on any mass transit at all? They're too dangerous to be allowed on a plane but it's perfectly fine for them to be on buses and trains? Terrorists have killed a lot of people on buses in Israel and on trains in Japan, why are we ok with letting people on the No Fly List get on buses and trains? People on the lists are also free to attend large events, games in huge stadiums, fairs, schools, etc. People on the No Fly List are too "dangerous" to be allowed onto a comercial flight but are "safe" enough to be allowed to do literally everything else that somebody not on the No Fly List can do. If the govt believes them to be safe enough to do all that then I'm fine with them owning guns.

The numbers you posted show that the people on both lists passed a federal background check (NICS) 94.3% of the time so if they're clean enough to pass the background check I'm not going to waste my time being afraid of them. If the people on the list haven't done anything to warrant any criminals charges currently and haven't done anything in the past that would prevent them from passing a NICS check why should I fear them? Because the govt decided to put them on an arbitrary and ineffectual list?



It's not that the information is "out of date", it's simply the sampling I offered up. Stats are stats, they're not milk, they don't go out of date.
As for individuals being on a "watch" list and not charged, is that really your criteria for what poses a threat? The fact that they haven't been charged or committed a terrorist act, that's the litmus test for a threat? You do understand the definition of "threat"? It's more of a perceived thing based on intention, study and observation. You see when a crime, terrorist or otherwise gets committed, it's no longer a perceived threat but reality. I'm neither a fan nor detractor of government, it is what we elect it to be, but when the FBI, et al, say "Hey, bit of a concern with this one.", I probably listen and probably don't want that person to have access to a gun or explosives. I'm funny that way. I'd rather do the whole "stitch in time" thing, especially when lives are at stake.
As far as the whole stadium, bus, etc. deflection...it doesn't warrant reply.
And yes, the lists are obviously arbitrary and ineffectual. I can see the Homeland Security Agents now, sitting around, throwing darts at a giant montage of names, races, addresses, etc...I'm sure that's how it's done.


I referenced the date because you seem to be very concerned that 1,321 firearms were purchased by people on the lists over 6 years ago. If those guns were bought by really dangerous people then they've had 6 years to do something bad with them. Did that happen? You don't offer any evidence of that happening yet you seem to believe it should of tantamount concern to me to the point of inhibiting my ability to sleep.

Yes, my litmus test for a person being punished by the government is for them to actually do something wrong first. I believe that a person is innocent until proven guilty. The presumption of innocence is the foundation upon which our legal system is built. Ifthe government wants to punish a citizen and inhibit their rights then the government is obligated to show just cause for doing so, that's Due Process. If the government doesn't have the evidence to charge somebody with a crime, let alone convict them, then the government can't punish them.

If the government thinks somebody is a dangerous then they can investigate and see if there is evidence to warrant criminal charges. It does not give the government the right to create secret lists of people to punish them. How do the lists protect me? The lists aren't publicized, even the people on the lists aren't notified that they've been put on a list, the people on the list aren't kept under surveillance, the people on the list aren't restricted from doing anything other than using commercial air travel, the people on the list don't have an appeal process to be removed from the list, the people on the list don't have a mechanism to prove they don't belong on the list before the government adds them to the list. You don't know who's on the list or why they're on the list but you're certain that they all belong on the list even though the list doesn't actually inhibit them from doing anything dangerous (other than boarding a plane) so you want the government to make the list even more punitive even in the absence of any evidence that it actually makes any kind of difference.

Except they did hide it so it is the same


No it isn't. It's not like the corporations know that fossil fuels pollute and are trying to hide that from the public, that's always been known and has been regulated for decades. Commissioning studies that end up supporting their own agenda isn't illegal. Different studies and opinions doesn't add up to deliberate malicious intent on hiding objective facts from the public.

If a company is producing a product and knows that the using the product can cause the side effect of contracting a deadly disease and deliberately hides that fact for decades in order to keep the public ignorant and continuing to buy their product is different from paying scientists to do a study. There are a plethora of climate studies out there, the fossil fuel corporations aren't hiding data from anyone. The public knows the dangerous of pollution and fossil fuel companies have been following government regulations, and being punished when they don't, for a long time.

A political party shouldn't use federal agencies to manufacture criminal cases against industries just because they're unpopular with the party's voting base. That's an obvious abuse of power.


See link above, they did know about it


All that link says is that Exxon did a study that showed that the developing the Natuna gas fields would involve venting a lot of CO2 into the atmosphere and they chose not to do the development because of the potential for increased costs from some form of carbon tax or emissions penalty/regulation. It doesn't prove that Exxon had conclusive proof to a degree of scientific certainty that fossil fuels were the direct cause of anthropomorphic global climate change because the global community of scientists hadn't made any such declaration back in 1981. The idea that CO2 emissions would be regulated and expensive doesn't prove that fossil fuel development changes global climate and weather patterns.

Contrast that to the tobacco industry where the medical community already knew that cancer was lethal and the industry knew that smoking greatly increased your odds of contracting cancer. The concept of anthropomorphic global climate change wasn't anything near a scientific certainty in 1981, regardless of what one in house impact study done by Exxon might have said. I fail to see how the US govt could prosecute Exxon because they decided not to develop the Natuna gas fields because the amount of carbon emissions generated by the extraction could incur excessive additional costs.

Not really.

RICO was designed to address organized crime.

It was specifically designed to help with some of the difficulty that prosecutors traditionally had in cracking big organized crime rings... mafia families, drug trafficking organizations, that sort of thing.

Saudi Arabia is one of the only participants in the oil business which has to have a really long-term perspective. Exxon Mobil and BP put out long-term forecasts for the energy market stretching into the 2030s but Saudi Arabia tends to think in 50-year timeframes.

BP and Exxon Mobil spend a great deal of time and effort producing annual reports on energy use and issue predictions on how it will evolve over the time. That helps keep investors informed on how the companies plan to mobilise capital to take best advantage of how they see events unfolding. Saudi Arabia, as the world’s largest low cost producer, does not issue public annual reports. However its plans to IPO the company tell us more than any report ever could about the conclusions the Saudi Arabian administration has reached about the future of the oil market.

          Quando Oposição Governou a Venezuela, 15 Planos Marshall Desapareceram para Seus Bolsos        


Arenomada socióloga venezuelana Maria Páez Victor, pesquisadora da Law Commission de Ontário no Canadá,  analisa profundamente a Assembléia Constituinte da Venezuela a ser votada neste dia 30 de julho dentro do contexto da nação caribenha, e fala sobre os maiores desafios que a Revolução Bolivariana enfrenta hoje.

Edu Montesanti: Professora Doutora Maria Páez Victor, muito obrigado por conceder esta entrevista tão importante; é uma honra para mim. Qual é a importância da próxima Assembléia Nacional Constituinte na Venezuela? A oposição afirma que é antidemocrática: qual sua resposta a isso?

Profª. Drª. Maria Páez: Os partidos e líderes dos violentos protestos que por três meses perturbaram a paz dos venezuelanos, são os mesmos que em 2002 apoiaram o golpe de Estado contra o presidente Chávez. Durante aquelas tensas 48 horas, uma das primeiras coisas que fizeram foi abolir a Constituição de 1999 - a que agora pretendem defender. Veja o filme, disponível na internet: The Revolution Will Not Be Televised.

Durante 18 anos a oposição viola a Constituição, e a revolta tem sido tão intensa contra a Constituição que mesmo depois de conquistar a maioria na Assembléia Nacional, eles insistiram que o governo era ilegítimo, ignoraram o Estado de direito, desconsideram as sentenças do Supremo Tribunal, recusaram-se a legislar, e declararam que o objetivo principal da Assembleia era "livrar-se de Maduro".

Esses personagens estão, agora, fingindo ser os árbitros da democracia, e opõem-se a qualquer emenda constitucional por uma Assembléia Constitucional eleita. Eles agora se opõem não ao governo, mas às próprias pessoas.
Chegou o dia do julgamento. A oposição orquestrou sabotagem econômica, contrabando por parte de empresas, manipulações da moeda do mercado negro, armazenamento de alimentos e produtos essenciais. Eles fecharam rodovias, queimaram edifícios públicos incluindo uma maternidade lotada, despejaram granadas de um helicóptero sobre os gabinetes da Suprema Corte, assaltaram, lincharam e até queimaram homens vivos e de pele escura, "que pareciam chavistas". Esta é uma oposição violenta mergulhada em racismo e preconceito de classe contra o próprio povo, e a serviço das potências estrangeiras e do grande petróleo.

Os partidos de oposição recusaram-se a negociar com o governo, apesar de ter sido estabelecida uma Mesa de Paz e Diálogo facilitada por três ex-presidentes da América Latina. A oposição insistiu em ter o Vaticano presente: quando o nuncio chegou, eles ainda recusaram participação. O presidente Maduro decidiu, então, que se a oposição não quisesse negociar com o governo eles teriam que negociar diretamente com o povo - e pediram uma Assembléia Constitucional para alterar a Constituição. Pois agora eles estão aterrorizados.

Os artigos constitucionais 437.438.439 indicam claramente que o presidente tem o direito de convocar uma Assembléia Constitucional para emendar a constituição. É incontestável um processo legítimo em curso. O próprio presidente Chávez falou sobre a necessidade de alterar a Constituição como um trabalho vivo para permitir o enfrentamento de novas circunstâncias. O presidente Maduro pediu uma emenda agora, neste momento porque é o último recurso para uma solução pacífica à violência nas ruas, que até hoje a oposição continua promovendo.

Em 1999, a Venezuela não enfrentava a série de perigos que enfrenta agora, e tem uma Assembléia Nacional disfuncional que se recusa a legislar para enfrentar esses desafios. Naquela época, as forças paramilitares não eram ferozes nas fronteiras ocidentais, não havia terrorismo nas ruas, não havia guerra econômica e financeira contra a economia, uma economia pós-petróleo não era visada de maneira tão séria, funcionários do governo não estavam sendo assassinados, prefeitos e governadores de oposição não protegiam a violência nas ruas, o procurador-geral não apoiava ativamente a impunidade dos crimes, não havia abusos flagrantes sobre a imunidade parlamentar com as autoridades pedindo abertamente às potências estrangeiras por intervenção para derrubar o governo, havia pouca atenção ao meio ambiente aos perigos climáticos do país e do planeta. Estes, agora, tornaram-se sérios problemas relativos à segurança do Estado.

Os representantes da Assembléia Constituinte serão eleitos no dia 30 de julho por meio de votação direta e secreta, que possui garantia eletrônica, de papel e digital contra fraudes. O ex-presidente dos Estados Unidos e vencedor do Prêmio Nobel, Jimmy Carter elogiou este processo eleitoral como "o melhor do mundo". Eles deliberarão e alterarão nove áreas específicas:

(1) Mecanismos para a paz: combater aqueles que realizam violência, reafirmando os valores e mecanismos de justiça;

(2) Promover uma nova economia pós-petróleo que seja produtiva, diversificada, integracionista, salvaguarda contra a guerra econômica;

(3) Programas de combate à pobreza, as "misiones" com status constitucional, garantindo o investimento social do Estado;

(4) Revisar o sistema de justiça, segurança e proteção, promover um sistema policial preventivo e investigativo, assim como com o sistema penitenciário, um código penal mais forte contra estupro, sequestro e homicídio, fortalecer a luta contra o terrorismo, contra os paramilitares, o narcotráfico e a impunidade;

(5) Promover uma maior democracia participativa através do fortalecimento de conselhos comunais e comunas, dando-lhes mais statusconstitucional;

(6) Promover uma política externa soberana, que defenda a integridade da Venezuela em um mundo multipolar;

(7) Promover a nova identidade e espiritualidade venezuelanas baseadas na diversidade pluricultural e cultural das pessoas, arte e cultura;

(8) Garantir o futuro da juventude e seus direitos sociais: cultural, educacional, laboral e tecnológico;

(9) Trabalhar para combater as mudanças climáticas, e proteger as condições ambientais da vida no planeta.

As mudanças constitucionais não contemplam "tornar Maduro presidente vitalício", nem "eliminar as eleições para sempre", como a máquina de propaganda da oposição acusa.

Quais os grandes desafios enfrentados pela Venezuela hoje, e quais as melhores maneiras de superá-los?

O maior desafio para a Venezuela é que as forças internacionais poderiam apoiar grupos de oposição e grupos paramilitares, para derrubar militarmente o governo. O grande petróleo está por trás disso. Eles pressionam os Estados Unidos e seus aliados porque querem controlar exclusivamente a maior reserva de petróleo do planeta, que se encontra exatamente na Venezuela.

Com um ex-diretor da Exxon Mobil Ã  frente do Departamento de Estado dos Estados Unidos [Rex Tillerson], o perigo para a Venezuela se tornou bastante intensificada. As classes altas da Venezuela estão desempenhando o papel que sempre desempenhou historicamente, desde a Independência: ser os lacaios de qualquer poder mundial é o que predomina. O país deles é dinheiro, e eles querem controlar o dinheiro do petróleo que flui para o Estado. Quando governaram a Venezuela nos últimos 40 anos [anteriores à Revolução Bolivariana], o equivalente a 15 Planos Marshal desapareceram em seus bolsos.

A melhor forma de combater os perigos que enfrentam a Venezuela é clara.

(1) Em primeiro lugar, enquanto o governo bolivariano estiver ao lado de seu povo, defendendo seus direitos humanos, sua soberania como povo, promovendo sua participação na democracia e promovendo igualdade e justiça social, a Revolução Bolivariana terá seu apoio;

(2) Em segundo lugar, o presidente Chávez transformou as Forças Armadas - sua principal função já não é mais a repressiva (aprendida na sinistra Escola das Américas), mas se vê como defensora das pessoas e da Constituição, sua identidade é agora a dos descendentes do exército de libertação de Bolívar.

(3) Em terceiro lugar, a Venezuela demonstrou ser um bom vizinho com a ALBA, a Petrocaribe, a Telesur, a Unasul e a CELAC. Está organicamente ligada à sua região. Também desenvolveu relações estreitas com Rússia, China, Índia, África e partes da Europa: já não é um país de águas remotas. Os Estados Unidos podem ter um poder militar incontestável e um aliado perigoso na Colômbia, mas um ataque contra a Venezuela criaria conflitos internacionais e internos significativos para os Estados Unidos.

Enfrentando uma oposição tão violenta com seus principais defensores, isto é, os Estados Unidos, e diante da histórica guerra mediática, o que tem possibilitado que a Revolução Bolivariana na Venezuela sobreviva até hoje, quase 19 anos depois de Hugo Chávez ter assumido o poder?

A oposição não pode derrubar o governo da Venezuela sem um apoio significativo da maioria, sem o apoio das Forças Armadas e sem apoio internacional. Essa é a visão sã e racional. No entanto, o império dos Estados Unidos, com um presidente perigosamente ignorante e equivocado em seu leme, poderia levar o caminho insano de armar a oposição para provocar uma guerra civil em grande escala, possivelmente com tropas colombianas. Minha previsão é que uma aventura tão cruel, enquanto dolorosa, acabará falhando.

O Império espanhol também subestimou consistentemente a resiliência e o propósito do povo venezuelano, e não sem razão, ele é chamado "el bravo pueblo".

          Faith leaders urge President Obama to minimize religious exemption for protection against LGBT discrimination        

On July 8, over a hundred high-level faith leaders from diverse religious traditions signed and sent a letter to President Obama, urging him to minimize a religious exemption in his upcoming executive order protecting LGBT people from discrimination.

The exemption, if included, would allow companies and service agencies that receive federal contracts to fire people for being LGBT for "religious" reasons." According to the New York Times, that means LGBT people would be able to be fired from huge companies that do business with the federal government, such as Exxon Mobil and Dell, as well as universities and charities that have federal contracts, provided that the employers fire them on "religious" grounds.

The faith leaders who signed this letter, however, held that favoring discrimination is anything but "religious." Bishop Gene Robinson (shown below), the first openly gay bishop in the Episcopal Church, said on the matter,

It is not right for any person or any corporation to use their religious beliefs, no matter how sincerely held, to trample the rights and beliefs of others… Nothing could be more contrary to the Golden Rule, articulated in every world religion.

Among the letter's signers were five seminary presidents, four former members of the President's Advisory Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships, five members of a presidential taskforce to reform the office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships, heads of nonprofits, denomination heads, congregational clergy, scholars and theologians.

The letter was in part a response to last week's Hobby Lobby decision, which created a slippery slope for "religious" exemptions of protecting basic human rights. Jay Michaelson, a visiting scholar at Brown University and author of God vs. Gay? The Religious Case for Equality, warned,

Those pushing for exemptions will not be satisfied until the underlying laws themselves are destroyed. For this reason, it is important to hold firm and refuse any ‘religious exemption’ except the most narrow ones for churches and ministers. Anything else is just playing into the hands of those who oppose equality.

Along with this week's letter, more than 30,000 Christians from across the country have signed a grassroots petition urging President Obama to stand strong in the face of religious leaders seeking to use their faith as a justification for anti-LGBT discrimination. The petition, organized by the online community Faithful America, reads, “There's nothing Christian about firing someone just because they're gay or lesbian. Taxpayer dollars shouldn't fund discrimination."

Rev. Fred Davie, a former member of the President’s Advisory Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships and the Executive Vice President at Union Theological Seminary, noted that those who support a religious exemption are on the wrong side of history:

Religions of the world across the ages have engendered and supported discrimination and bigotry from deceptively genteel to utterly horrific…We have also sacrificed our very lives for our neighbors in response to God's radical and unrelenting call to love others as much as we love ourselves. I ask now that we opt for love of the other and inclusion, especially when accepting the public's money.

          Your Call: Five years after the BP oil spill, what do we know about the long-term effects?         
Five years after the BP oil spill, what do we know about the long-term effects? On the April 16th edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about the worst environmental disaster in U.S. history. Oil and methane gas spewed into the ocean for 87 straight days. The U.S. government estimates over 4 million barrels of oil spilled into the Gulf. Recovery teams collected only 17 percent. Where is all of that oil?

          Top Warmie Hansen Wants Nuremberg For Oil Execs        
For 20 years, your tax dollars have been supporting NASA scientist and Warmie Grand Inquisitor extraordinaire James Hansen as he demands that no voice be raised against his global warming theories. He went too far long ago, and now he's gone way, way too far. From the Guardian:
James Hansen, one of the world's leading climate scientists, will today call for the chief executives of large fossil fuel companies to be put on trial for high crimes against humanity and nature, accusing them of actively spreading doubt about global warming in the same way that tobacco companies blurred the links between smoking and cancer. ...

Speaking before Congress again, he will accuse the chief executive officers of companies such as ExxonMobil and Peabody Energy of being fully aware of the disinformation about climate change they are spreading.

In an interview with the Guardian he said: "When you are in that kind of position, as the CEO of one the primary players who have been putting out misinformation even via organisations that affect what gets into school textbooks, then I think that's a crime."
Note: Speaking of crap in school curricula, a British judge recently ruled that teachers there cannot show Gore's An Inconvenient Truth unless additional materials are also handed out to counter nine significant errors presented as truth in the film.

Be that as it may, here's Hansen's solution to the fact that the world is not yet kowtowing to him and has not yet issued groovy priest robes to him:
  1. Witch hunts for any who stray from Warmie orthodoxy, perhaps followed by public floggings.

  2. Political campaigns to rid Congress of pesky skeptics, who might stand in the way of Warmie totalitarianism.

  3. Restrictions on lobbyists -- but only skeptical lobbyists. Lobbyists for the environmental and green industries will be free to wander the halls of Congress, and to take Congressmen on junkets (with carbon credit offsets, of course).

  4. Banning, limiting and otherwise discouraging fossil-fueled power in order to give alternative energy "a chance to compete" -- i.e., facilitating skyrocketing energy costs and the attendant increases in poverty and hardship.
You're reading this today because Hansen's PR/lobbying machine is all fired up. He's got a new organization, 350.org, dedicated to getting CO2 levels below the hallowed 350 ppm. Here's an undecipherable film clip of the ad 350 is running in today's NYT, Financial Times and other major pubs:



Note the ominous interjection of the word "peaceably" in the ad -- they want the 350 target hit through peaceable means. The theme is repeated in a celeb blurb from Bianca Jagger, whose only claims to fame I can see are (1) sleeping with a rock star and (2) getting a big divorce settlement:
"Climate change is not an isolated environmental issue. It touches every part of our lives: peace, security, human rights, poverty ... blah, blah, blah"
What word did they chose to put first? Peace. Now that may be because they're a bunch of lamebrains who think the war in Iraq is all about oil and not at all about Islamofascism, or more likely, it may be that they see the distinct possibility of Warmie War, with military ops, bloodshed and civilian casualties, all in the name of Hansen's religion.

After all, they're already calling for a Nuremberg trial, as if they'd already won the war.
          An Interesting Juxtaposition        
Two news items crossed paths this morning, creating some excited synapse-jumping in my brain. First this:
BAGHDAD (NYT) — Four Western oil companies are in the final stages of negotiations this month on contracts that will return them to Iraq, 36 years after losing their oil concession to nationalization as Saddam Hussein rose to power.

Exxon Mobil, Shell, Total and BP — the original partners in the Iraq Petroleum Company — along with Chevron and a number of smaller oil companies, are in talks with Iraq’s Oil Ministry for no-bid contracts to service Iraq’s largest fields, according to ministry officials, oil company officials and an American diplomat.
This de-nationalization of oil is, unquestionably, great news for the people of Iraq and more evidence that we are winning the war and -- remember this idea? -- building democracy in the place of totalitarianism in the Middle East. Oil production will be freed of bureaucratic incompetency and corruption, capitalism will reign, and the democratic Iraqi government will begin reaping financial benefits it can use to defend itself, rebuilt infrastructure, care for refugees, etc.

The left doesn't see it that way, of course.

The NYT, forgetting for the moment that it was American blood that freed Iraq, wonders why Chinese and Russian bids were shunted aside and whispers conspiratorially that American advisors are at work in the Iraqi oil ministry.

The Soros-funded Think Progress isn't letting any editorial feelings slip with this illustration on its coverage of the story, eh?

Matthew Yglesias lays it out for the lefties:
I think the evidence is clear that the Bush administration went to war in Iraq because it's run by crazy people. The oil money more plausibly comes into play in explaining the desire to stay at war forever.
Hmm. Last time I checked, American multinationals prefer working in peaceful countries. Then Yglesias cues up the next story that caught my attention with this:
Nationalization, you see, is a substantial risk of doing business -- especially natural resource business -- in unstable countries. But a given government is much, much, much less likely to nationalize western countries' assets if it's dependent on external U.S. military support and especially if its security services are nicely enmeshed with the U.S. military.
Meanwhile, back in the U.S., a country whose security is also nicely enmeshed with the U.S. military, there's this:

Link: sevenload.com

The clip, courtesy of Hot Air, shows NY Rep Maurice Hinchey calling for the nationalization of oil refineries; he was one of several Dems who yesterday spouted similar socialistic rhetoric. (I understand the DNC is considering a name change to DPP, Democratic Peoples Party.)

Watch the clip because Hinchey comes and goes quickly, followed by an interview between Neil Cavuto and an Obama supporter Malia Lazu that will blow your mind. Lazu says it was a mistake for the U.S. to allow oil to be a free market industry in the first place, and that this grievous mistake -- evidenced, I suppose, by the horrible state of our oil infrastructure and government's continuing inability to allow an increase supply or new refineries -- and that "we won't find out" that oil will just get more expensive under government ownership because "when Congress can set prices it can set prices."

Her excuse for destroying a system that's served us well for over 100 years despite all of government's efforts to screw it up: "It's our oil." Follow that line of this Obamaniac's thinking -- which ignores royalties BTW -- and it's our forests, it's our lakes, it's our coal, it's our clay in the bricks you built that factory with, Capitalist Pig.

Fortunately, we are already a democracy, so Hinchey and his fellow travelers can vomit out Communist party talking points with no real effect on the rest of us. And in Iraq, another step has been made down the road that will allow the Mohammed el-Hincheys to be just as ridiculous, just as threatening to our stability, with no real effect on their government.

          Warga Kecamatan Gayam Antusias Ramaikan Tour De Gayam 2016

          Look Before You Link        

Saturday morning dawned clear and bright, but I knew the heat was coming. So I set off around 8 a.m. for a bike ride. I planned to pedal to Overton Park, hit the trails for a circuit or two, then get onto the Hamp Line down Broad and work my way back through Binghampton to Midtown.

When I came to the intersection of McLean and Poplar, I encountered a huge fustercluck of traffic and illegally parked cars on both sides of McLean. There was a line of people out the door of the Exxon station that stretched down the sidewalk for 50 yards.

What in the world?

I worked my way through the mess and continued north, figuring I'd find out later what was going on. What was going on, as everyone in Memphis now knows, was Z-Bo-gate — or Kiosk-gate, if you prefer. All over the city, kiosks set up for folks to pay their MLGW bills were giving people the information that their accounts were paid off. That news, which spread like a California wildfire on social media, was further fueled by a rumor that departing Grizzlies superstar Zach Randolph had given $1 million to MLGW to pay off people's utility bills.

Thousands of people waited hours in line to spend the $2 kiosk fee, happily exiting with zero-balance MLGW bills in hand, only to find out later that it was all a computer glitch of some sort and they'd just spent $2 — and wasted lots of time — chasing a fantasy.

What does this incident say about Memphis? For one thing, it says that we have a lot of poor people, folks desperate enough to get relief from, say, a $300 utility bill, that they would spend hours on a beautiful Saturday waiting in line, hoping for a miracle. It says further, that social media has the power to lead people down a primrose path of foolishness. And it says people will often believe what they want to believe, even in the face of what common sense or a little fact-checking might otherwise tell them.

But it's not just poor people or people looking to beat the system who fall for this kind of stuff. That same weekend, thousands (maybe millions) of people on Facebook passed along a pasted-in message urging everyone they knew not to accept a friend request from one Jayden K. Smith, because doing so would expose all their personal information. Or some such hogwash. That was also a hoax, and though it had nothing to do with getting a bill paid, it had everything to do with human gullibility or the lack of initiative to do a little fact-checking before passing along false information as gospel.

We, all of us — rich, middle-class, poor, black, white, brown — are constantly being inundated with news stories, rumors, memes, gossip, videos, and other useful and useless information through our phones and computers. It's often difficult to discern the difference between what is true and what is just internet horse puckery. The lines are blurred and getting blurrier as cries of "Fake news!" continue to emanate from the highest office in the land. That being the case, we should all keep in mind that the miraculous devices bringing us all this information also give us the ability to deter the spread of falsehoods by making an inquiring phone call or fact-checking via Google or Snopes.

The bottom line is that we all need to remember to look before we leap — or link. Or before we go stand in line for three hours with Jayden K. Smith.

Newport Beach, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/24/2006 -- Universal Guardian Holdings, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: UGHO - News), a full service provider of non-lethal protection products, global supply chain logistics systems and security services to protect against terrorist, criminal and security threats to governments and businesses worldwide, announced that its Services Group subsidiary, Secure Risks - Strategic Security Solutions (SR-SSSI), has been awarded a new contract from PAE-HSC Joint Venture to provide security support services to the Justice Sector Support Program for Afghanistan under PAE-HSC's prime contract with the United States Department of State.

"This new contract represents yet another expansion of our operations in the region and clearly demonstrates the confidence that companies such as PAE-HSC have in our organization's ability to deliver the highest level of strategic and tactical security services to the U.S. government agencies," stated Bruce Braes, Managing Director of SR-SSSI. "We continue to demonstrate solid revenue growth in our business group by securing new contracts. We now hold executed contracts in excess of $19.25 Million USD in value for FY 2006, along with options to extend existing contracts which, if exercised, are anticipated to have a projected value of $60 Million USD over the course of the next three years," continued Mr. Braes.

Considering last years revenues for the first 9 months of approximately $8.8 million and the 2005 year end projection of approximately $11.7 million these new in hand contracts represent a massive gain in new business for the Company and it's only the 1st quarter. With 9 months left in 2006 and 2 other divisions (ISR Systems and Shield Defense) we believe the 2 x market capitalization to projected revenue is extremely low based on the current price of $.92 cents. We believe at the current pace the Company is securing new contract business that the 2006 year over year revenue projections will match or exceed last years projected 185% revenue increase. The Company should easily attain based on these projections the 2006 $35 million forecast UGHO publicly announced. We also feel that the client list involved with the Company leaves a tremendous amount of room for expansion worldwide on existing contracts.

The client list includes:
• U.S. Department of Homeland Security
• U.S. Department of State
• U.S. Army
• U.S. Navy
• U.S. Air Force
• British Government
• British Nuclear Energy
• Canadian Foreign Ministry
• Government of the Netherlands
• Indonesian National Police
• Argentine Foreign Ministry
• International Reconstruction and Development Agency • Lockheed Martin
• Northrop Grumman
• Boeing
• Raytheon
• BAE
• United Technologies
• Exxon Mobil
• Fluor International
• Bechtel
• ING Barings Bank / International Afghanistan Bank
• Standard and Chartered Bank
• Coca Cola

With an up and coming non lethal weapons division currently in pilot programs with notables such as the Los Angles Sheriff's Department and distribution partners such as U.S. Cavalry and Mexican distributor, VICGA, SA of Monterrey, Mexico we believe that sizable sales from this division are on target.

Add in the RFID division and the current cargo tracking test ongoing with the State of Alaska and Franwell (The results of the project will likely be presented in April at the annual USDA Food Aid Conference) as well as the incredible opportunity to have a hand in the recent hot topic of Port and Container Security we can only reach one conclusion…..

Newport Beach, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/24/2006 -- Universal Guardian Holdings, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: UGHO - News), a full service provider of non-lethal protection products, global supply chain logistics systems and security services to protect against terrorist, criminal and security threats to governments and businesses worldwide, announced that its Services Group subsidiary, Secure Risks - Strategic Security Solutions (SR-SSSI), has been awarded a new contract from PAE-HSC Joint Venture to provide security support services to the Justice Sector Support Program for Afghanistan under PAE-HSC's prime contract with the United States Department of State.

"This new contract represents yet another expansion of our operations in the region and clearly demonstrates the confidence that companies such as PAE-HSC have in our organization's ability to deliver the highest level of strategic and tactical security services to the U.S. government agencies," stated Bruce Braes, Managing Director of SR-SSSI. "We continue to demonstrate solid revenue growth in our business group by securing new contracts. We now hold executed contracts in excess of $19.25 Million USD in value for FY 2006, along with options to extend existing contracts which, if exercised, are anticipated to have a projected value of $60 Million USD over the course of the next three years," continued Mr. Braes.

Considering last years revenues for the first 9 months of approximately $8.8 million and the 2005 year end projection of approximately $11.7 million these new in hand contracts represent a massive gain in new business for the Company and it's only the 1st quarter. With 9 months left in 2006 and 2 other divisions (ISR Systems and Shield Defense) we believe the 2 x market capitalization to projected revenue is extremely low based on the current price of $.92 cents. We believe at the current pace the Company is securing new contract business that the 2006 year over year revenue projections will match or exceed last years projected 185% revenue increase. The Company should easily attain based on these projections the 2006 $35 million forecast UGHO publicly announced. We also feel that the client list involved with the Company leaves a tremendous amount of room for expansion worldwide on existing contracts.

The client list includes:

• U.S. Department of Homeland Security

• U.S. Department of State

• U.S. Army

• U.S. Navy

• U.S. Air Force

• British Government

• British Nuclear Energy

• Canadian Foreign Ministry

• Government of the Netherlands

• Indonesian National Police

• Argentine Foreign Ministry

• International Reconstruction and Development Agency • Lockheed Martin

• Northrop Grumman

• Boeing

• Raytheon

• BAE

• United Technologies

• Exxon Mobil

• Fluor International

• Bechtel

• ING Barings Bank / International Afghanistan Bank

• Standard and Chartered Bank

• Coca Cola

With an up and coming non lethal weapons division currently in pilot programs with notables such as the Los Angles Sheriff's Department and distribution partners such as U.S. Cavalry and Mexican distributor, VICGA, SA of Monterrey, Mexico we believe that sizable sales from this division are on target.

Add in the RFID division and the current cargo tracking test ongoing with the State of Alaska and Franwell (The results of the project will likely be presented in April at the annual USDA Food Aid Conference) as well as the incredible opportunity to have a hand in the recent hot topic of Port and Container Security we can only reach one conclusion…..

Newport Beach, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/24/2006 -- Universal Guardian Holdings, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: UGHO - News), a full service provider of non-lethal protection products, global supply chain logistics systems and security services to protect against terrorist, criminal and security threats to governments and businesses worldwide, announced that its Services Group subsidiary, Secure Risks - Strategic Security Solutions (SR-SSSI), has been awarded a new contract from PAE-HSC Joint Venture to provide security support services to the Justice Sector Support Program for Afghanistan under PAE-HSC's prime contract with the United States Department of State.

"This new contract represents yet another expansion of our operations in the region and clearly demonstrates the confidence that companies such as PAE-HSC have in our organization's ability to deliver the highest level of strategic and tactical security services to the U.S. government agencies," stated Bruce Braes, Managing Director of SR-SSSI. "We continue to demonstrate solid revenue growth in our business group by securing new contracts. We now hold executed contracts in excess of $19.25 Million USD in value for FY 2006, along with options to extend existing contracts which, if exercised, are anticipated to have a projected value of $60 Million USD over the course of the next three years," continued Mr. Braes.

Considering last years revenues for the first 9 months of approximately $8.8 million and the 2005 year end projection of approximately $11.7 million these new in hand contracts represent a massive gain in new business for the Company and it's only the 1st quarter. With 9 months left in 2006 and 2 other divisions (ISR Systems and Shield Defense) we believe the 2 x market capitalization to projected revenue is extremely low based on the current price of $.92 cents. We believe at the current pace the Company is securing new contract business that the 2006 year over year revenue projections will match or exceed last years projected 185% revenue increase. The Company should easily attain based on these projections the 2006 $35 million forecast UGHO publicly announced. We also feel that the client list involved with the Company leaves a tremendous amount of room for expansion worldwide on existing contracts.

The client list includes:

• U.S. Department of Homeland Security

• U.S. Department of State

• U.S. Army

• U.S. Navy

• U.S. Air Force

• British Government

• British Nuclear Energy

• Canadian Foreign Ministry

• Government of the Netherlands

• Indonesian National Police

• Argentine Foreign Ministry

• International Reconstruction and Development Agency • Lockheed Martin

• Northrop Grumman

• Boeing

• Raytheon

• BAE

• United Technologies

• Exxon Mobil

• Fluor International

• Bechtel

• ING Barings Bank / International Afghanistan Bank

• Standard and Chartered Bank

• Coca Cola

With an up and coming non lethal weapons division currently in pilot programs with notables such as the Los Angles Sheriff's Department and distribution partners such as U.S. Cavalry and Mexican distributor, VICGA, SA of Monterrey, Mexico we believe that sizable sales from this division are on target.

Add in the RFID division and the current cargo tracking test ongoing with the State of Alaska and Franwell (The results of the project will likely be presented in April at the annual USDA Food Aid Conference) as well as the incredible opportunity to have a hand in the recent hot topic of Port and Container Security we can only reach one conclusion…..

Newport Beach, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/3/2006 -- UNIVERSAL GUARDIAN HOLDINGS, INC. (OTCBB: UGHO), an emerging global leader in inter-modal transportation security, global supply chain RFID systems, tactical products and security services to protect against terrorist, criminal and security threats, today announced that its Universal Guardian's Systems Group, ISR Systems, will deploy its RFIDCentral™ Print Farm on March 27, 2006 in Hong Kong to enable companies whom manufacture products in Asia to meet international retailer mandates without purchasing or deploying any equipment.

"RFID is still new to many companies, they want to get started but are reluctant because of costs and technical challenges associated with their suppliers or manufacturing operations. Our new RFIDCentral™ Print Farm utilizes Zebra Technologies advanced printers in combination with our powerful RFIDCentral™ platform to enable suppliers and manufacturers of all sizes to harness the efficiency and emerging RFID mandates without incurring additional system expense. We can provide EPC (Electronic Product Code) RFID tags for goods manufactured in Asia within 24 hours," stated Herbert Goertz, Universal's ISR Systems President.

ISR Systems RFIDCentral™ software suite is a simple yet powerful web based system that provides advanced supply chain visibility and control including standard interfaces to the major ERP packages and retailer systems.

"We are excited about working with Universal's ISR Systems in Asia, the company has an extensive history in China with RFID supply chain solutions" stated Bob Cornick, Vice President and General Manager of RFID, Zebra Technologies Corporation. "The volume of goods produced in Asia is astronomical and we see a huge market for RFID source tagging.

Newport Beach, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/1/2006 -- UNIVERSAL GUARDIAN HOLDINGS, INC. (OTCBB: UGHO), an emerging global leader in inter-modal transportation security, global supply chain security and visibility RFID systems, tactical products and security services to protect against terrorist, criminal and security threats, today announced that its Universal Guardian's Systems Group, ISR Systems, has been selected to participate in a pilot program being conducted by the State of Alaska Department of Commerce, Community and Economic Development, the Cordova District Fisherman United group as well as Franwell Inc, to track a shipment of RFID tagged wild Alaska canned salmon from Seattle to the Country of Guatemala, where the food will be distributed to the needy and school children.

Franwell, a leader in the research, development, and implementation of RFID technology for food supply chain operations, selected Universal Guardian Systems Group's Container Guardian™ tracking system as an integral solution for an existing project with RFID case/pallet tags and RFID temperature tags. One of purposes of this project is to test the use of portable RFID reader/antenna configurations with localized software to enable the implementation for the entire logistics chain, including countries without normal infrastructure and expertise. ISR Systems device agnostic, open standard solution tracks container movement and key conditions in the container portion of the logistics chain. Working together, Franwell and Universal's ISR Systems plan to provide test results to a variety of clients with these special challenges in their logistics process, with further proof-of-concept and custom solutions as warranted. Franwell Inc. has also brought the University of Florida Research Center for Food Distribution and Retailing (Dr. Jean Pierre Emond and Dr. Jeffrey K. Brecht, Co-Directors) into this project, adding graduate student field experience, faculty analysis and formal publication of the results of the project. Franwell Inc. and the graduate student will go to Guatemala City to finish the pilot test and recover loaner equipment on March 17th, 2006. While this particular project is focused on a Food Aid shipment, it has the interest of other agencies and parties with similar needs. The effort of the State of Alaska to make this project happen, and to enable testing of RFID and GPS tracking technology has potentially far reaching benefits.

"We are excited about participating in the Alaska Food Aid project as it represents the best of the American people as they generously give billions of dollars of support to the needy around the globe," stated Chris Terry, Universal's ISR Systems Vice President. "Unfortunately aid shipments do not always get to the people whom need it most. Our Container Guardian™ Global Tracking System powered by our RFIDCentral™ Platform can provide the exact location and condition of aid shipments around the world thus making sure it reaches its intended destination and recipients," added Mr. Terry.

Every year tons of charitable aid from the United States is lost. Sometimes it is a result of criminal activity, others times logistic. Container Guardian™ and its RFIDCentral™ platform provides shipment visibility and automated alerts, which means global aid shipments can be managed in real time, reducing losses and saving the American taxpayer millions of dollars. In some cases the rapid location of urgently needed aid can even save lives. RFIDCentral™ alerts are fully customizable: they can provide notification if a container is off course (geo-fencing), misplaced, opened without authorization, or exposed to excessive temperature for example. More advanced visibility provides real time container inventory, making sure deliveries of aid are accurate for exact location.

"This project is a milestone in the use of technology with regard to aid shipments. We have chosen a best of breed approach as we have assembled a diverse team to deliver the solution we wanted. RFIDCentral was the only package we could find that provided the real time visibility integrated with RFID" stated Bruce Schactler, Project Manager, State of Alaska Department of Commerce, Community and Economic Development.

The State of Alaska's Department of Commerce, Community and Economic Development along with local Alaska fishermen organized under the Cordova District Fishermen United underwrote the test project. This project under the recommendation of Mr. William C. Noll the Commissioner of the Department of Commerce, Community and Economic Development provides accountability, delivery and security of the shipment to insure it reaches the Children of Guatemala.

Kevin Adams, Logistics Coordinator, State of Alaska said "ISR Systems has been a pleasure to work with, the company pulled out the stops to make sure this project got off on time. We cannot say enough good things about them."

The results of the project will likely be presented in April at the annual USDA Food Aid Conference. "We look forward to a successful completion of the test project and the opportunity to present the findings to everyone in the food aid community" remarked Mr. Schactler.

Newport Beach, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/24/2006 -- Universal Guardian Holdings, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: UGHO - News), a full service provider of non-lethal protection products, global supply chain logistics systems and security services to protect against terrorist, criminal and security threats to governments and businesses worldwide, announced that its Services Group subsidiary, Secure Risks - Strategic Security Solutions (SR-SSSI), has been awarded a new contract from PAE-HSC Joint Venture to provide security support services to the Justice Sector Support Program for Afghanistan under PAE-HSC's prime contract with the United States Department of State.

"This new contract represents yet another expansion of our operations in the region and clearly demonstrates the confidence that companies such as PAE-HSC have in our organization's ability to deliver the highest level of strategic and tactical security services to the U.S. government agencies," stated Bruce Braes, Managing Director of SR-SSSI. "We continue to demonstrate solid revenue growth in our business group by securing new contracts. We now hold executed contracts in excess of $19.25 Million USD in value for FY 2006, along with options to extend existing contracts which, if exercised, are anticipated to have a projected value of $60 Million USD over the course of the next three years," continued Mr. Braes.

Considering last years revenues for the first 9 months of approximately $8.8 million and the 2005 year end projection of approximately $11.7 million these new in hand contracts represent a massive gain in new business for the Company and it's only the 1st quarter. With 9 months left in 2006 and 2 other divisions (ISR Systems and Shield Defense) we believe the 2 x market capitalization to projected revenue is extremely low based on the current price of $.92 cents. We believe at the current pace the Company is securing new contract business that the 2006 year over year revenue projections will match or exceed last years projected 185% revenue increase. The Company should easily attain based on these projections the 2006 $35 million forecast UGHO publicly announced. We also feel that the client list involved with the Company leaves a tremendous amount of room for expansion worldwide on existing contracts.

The client list includes:

• U.S. Department of Homeland Security

• U.S. Department of State

• U.S. Army

• U.S. Navy

• U.S. Air Force

• British Government

• British Nuclear Energy

• Canadian Foreign Ministry

• Government of the Netherlands

• Indonesian National Police

• Argentine Foreign Ministry

• International Reconstruction and Development Agency • Lockheed Martin

• Northrop Grumman

• Boeing

• Raytheon

• BAE

• United Technologies

• Exxon Mobil

• Fluor International

• Bechtel

• ING Barings Bank / International Afghanistan Bank

• Standard and Chartered Bank

• Coca Cola

With an up and coming non lethal weapons division currently in pilot programs with notables such as the Los Angles Sheriff's Department and distribution partners such as U.S. Cavalry and Mexican distributor, VICGA, SA of Monterrey, Mexico we believe that sizable sales from this division are on target.

Add in the RFID division and the current cargo tracking test ongoing with the State of Alaska and Franwell (The results of the project will likely be presented in April at the annual USDA Food Aid Conference) as well as the incredible opportunity to have a hand in the recent hot topic of Port and Container Security we can only reach one conclusion…..

Newport Beach, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/3/2006 -- UNIVERSAL GUARDIAN HOLDINGS, INC. (OTCBB: UGHO), an emerging global leader in inter-modal transportation security, global supply chain RFID systems, tactical products and security services to protect against terrorist, criminal and security threats, today announced that its Universal Guardian's Systems Group, ISR Systems, will deploy its RFIDCentral™ Print Farm on March 27, 2006 in Hong Kong to enable companies whom manufacture products in Asia to meet international retailer mandates without purchasing or deploying any equipment.

"RFID is still new to many companies, they want to get started but are reluctant because of costs and technical challenges associated with their suppliers or manufacturing operations. Our new RFIDCentral™ Print Farm utilizes Zebra Technologies advanced printers in combination with our powerful RFIDCentral™ platform to enable suppliers and manufacturers of all sizes to harness the efficiency and emerging RFID mandates without incurring additional system expense. We can provide EPC (Electronic Product Code) RFID tags for goods manufactured in Asia within 24 hours," stated Herbert Goertz, Universal's ISR Systems President.

ISR Systems RFIDCentral™ software suite is a simple yet powerful web based system that provides advanced supply chain visibility and control including standard interfaces to the major ERP packages and retailer systems. From any web browser users can securely log into their system and print electronic product codes (EPC) and retailer compliant RFID labels, generate advanced shipping notices (ASNs), check inventory levels, and locate shipments.

"We are excited about working with Universal's ISR Systems in Asia, the company has an extensive history in China with RFID supply chain solutions" stated Bob Cornick, Vice President and General Manager of RFID, Zebra Technologies Corporation. "The volume of goods produced in Asia is astronomical and we see a huge market for RFID source tagging. We think ISR System's RFIDCentral™ combined with Zebra printing solutions is a win-win combination which can provide immediate RFID tagged Asian goods," continued Mr. Cornick.

Newport Beach, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/1/2006 -- UNIVERSAL GUARDIAN HOLDINGS, INC. (OTCBB: UGHO), an emerging global leader in inter-modal transportation security, global supply chain security and visibility RFID systems, tactical products and security services to protect against terrorist, criminal and security threats, today announced that its Universal Guardian's Systems Group, ISR Systems, has been selected to participate in a pilot program being conducted by the State of Alaska Department of Commerce, Community and Economic Development, the Cordova District Fisherman United group as well as Franwell Inc, to track a shipment of RFID tagged wild Alaska canned salmon from Seattle to the Country of Guatemala, where the food will be distributed to the needy and school children.

Franwell, a leader in the research, development, and implementation of RFID technology for food supply chain operations, selected Universal Guardian Systems Group's Container Guardian™ tracking system as an integral solution for an existing project with RFID case/pallet tags and RFID temperature tags. One of purposes of this project is to test the use of portable RFID reader/antenna configurations with localized software to enable the implementation for the entire logistics chain, including countries without normal infrastructure and expertise. ISR Systems device agnostic, open standard solution tracks container movement and key conditions in the container portion of the logistics chain. Working together, Franwell and Universal's ISR Systems plan to provide test results to a variety of clients with these special challenges in their logistics process, with further proof-of-concept and custom solutions as warranted. Franwell Inc. has also brought the University of Florida Research Center for Food Distribution and Retailing (Dr. Jean Pierre Emond and Dr. Jeffrey K. Brecht, Co-Directors) into this project, adding graduate student field experience, faculty analysis and formal publication of the results of the project. Franwell Inc. and the graduate student will go to Guatemala City to finish the pilot test and recover loaner equipment on March 17th, 2006. While this particular project is focused on a Food Aid shipment, it has the interest of other agencies and parties with similar needs. The effort of the State of Alaska to make this project happen, and to enable testing of RFID and GPS tracking technology has potentially far reaching benefits.

"We are excited about participating in the Alaska Food Aid project as it represents the best of the American people as they generously give billions of dollars of support to the needy around the globe," stated Chris Terry, Universal's ISR Systems Vice President. "Unfortunately aid shipments do not always get to the people whom need it most. Our Container Guardian™ Global Tracking System powered by our RFIDCentral™ Platform can provide the exact location and condition of aid shipments around the world thus making sure it reaches its intended destination and recipients," added Mr. Terry.

Every year tons of charitable aid from the United States is lost. Sometimes it is a result of criminal activity, others times logistic. Container Guardian™ and its RFIDCentral™ platform provides shipment visibility and automated alerts, which means global aid shipments can be managed in real time, reducing losses and saving the American taxpayer millions of dollars. In some cases the rapid location of urgently needed aid can even save lives. RFIDCentral™ alerts are fully customizable: they can provide notification if a container is off course (geo-fencing), misplaced, opened without authorization, or exposed to excessive temperature for example. More advanced visibility provides real time container inventory, making sure deliveries of aid are accurate for exact location.

"This project is a milestone in the use of technology with regard to aid shipments. We have chosen a best of breed approach as we have assembled a diverse team to deliver the solution we wanted. RFIDCentral was the only package we could find that provided the real time visibility integrated with RFID" stated Bruce Schactler, Project Manager, State of Alaska Department of Commerce, Community and Economic Development.

The State of Alaska's Department of Commerce, Community and Economic Development along with local Alaska fishermen organized under the Cordova District Fishermen United underwrote the test project. This project under the recommendation of Mr. William C. Noll the Commissioner of the Department of Commerce, Community and Economic Development provides accountability, delivery and security of the shipment to insure it reaches the Children of Guatemala.

Kevin Adams, Logistics Coordinator, State of Alaska said "ISR Systems has been a pleasure to work with, the company pulled out the stops to make sure this project got off on time. We cannot say enough good things about them."

Newport Beach, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/24/2006 -- Universal Guardian Holdings, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: UGHO - News), a full service provider of non-lethal protection products, global supply chain logistics systems and security services to protect against terrorist, criminal and security threats to governments and businesses worldwide, announced that its Services Group subsidiary, Secure Risks - Strategic Security Solutions (SR-SSSI), has been awarded a new contract from PAE-HSC Joint Venture to provide security support services to the Justice Sector Support Program for Afghanistan under PAE-HSC's prime contract with the United States Department of State.

"This new contract represents yet another expansion of our operations in the region and clearly demonstrates the confidence that companies such as PAE-HSC have in our organization's ability to deliver the highest level of strategic and tactical security services to the U.S. government agencies," stated Bruce Braes, Managing Director of SR-SSSI. "We continue to demonstrate solid revenue growth in our business group by securing new contracts. We now hold executed contracts in excess of $19.25 Million USD in value for FY 2006, along with options to extend existing contracts which, if exercised, are anticipated to have a projected value of $60 Million USD over the course of the next three years," continued Mr. Braes.

Considering last years revenues for the first 9 months of approximately $8.8 million and the 2005 year end projection of approximately $11.7 million these new in hand contracts represent a massive gain in new business for the Company and it's only the 1st quarter. With 9 months left in 2006 and 2 other divisions (ISR Systems and Shield Defense) we believe the 2 x market capitalization to projected revenue is extremely low based on the current price of $.92 cents. We believe at the current pace the Company is securing new contract business that the 2006 year over year revenue projections will match or exceed last years projected 185% revenue increase. The Company should easily attain based on these projections the 2006 $35 million forecast UGHO publicly announced. We also feel that the client list involved with the Company leaves a tremendous amount of room for expansion worldwide on existing contracts.

The client list includes:

• U.S. Department of Homeland Security

• U.S. Department of State

• U.S. Army

• U.S. Navy

• U.S. Air Force

• British Government

• British Nuclear Energy

• Canadian Foreign Ministry

• Government of the Netherlands

• Indonesian National Police

• Argentine Foreign Ministry

• International Reconstruction and Development Agency • Lockheed Martin

• Northrop Grumman

• Boeing

• Raytheon

• BAE

• United Technologies

• Exxon Mobil

• Fluor International

• Bechtel

• ING Barings Bank / International Afghanistan Bank

• Standard and Chartered Bank

• Coca Cola

With an up and coming non lethal weapons division currently in pilot programs with notables such as the Los Angles Sheriff's Department and distribution partners such as U.S. Cavalry and Mexican distributor, VICGA, SA of Monterrey, Mexico we believe that sizable sales from this division are on target.

Add in the RFID division and the current cargo tracking test ongoing with the State of Alaska and Franwell (The results of the project will likely be presented in April at the annual USDA Food Aid Conference) as well as the incredible opportunity to have a hand in the recent hot topic of Port and Container Security we can only reach one conclusion…..

Newport Beach, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/1/2006 -- UNIVERSAL GUARDIAN HOLDINGS, INC. (OTCBB: UGHO), an emerging global leader in inter-modal transportation security, global supply chain security and visibility RFID systems, tactical products and security services to protect against terrorist, criminal and security threats, today announced that its Universal Guardian's Systems Group, ISR Systems, has been selected to participate in a pilot program being conducted by the State of Alaska Department of Commerce, Community and Economic Development, the Cordova District Fisherman United group as well as Franwell Inc, to track a shipment of RFID tagged wild Alaska canned salmon from Seattle to the Country of Guatemala, where the food will be distributed to the needy and school children.

Franwell, a leader in the research, development, and implementation of RFID technology for food supply chain operations, selected Universal Guardian Systems Group's Container Guardian™ tracking system as an integral solution for an existing project with RFID case/pallet tags and RFID temperature tags. One of purposes of this project is to test the use of portable RFID reader/antenna configurations with localized software to enable the implementation for the entire logistics chain, including countries without normal infrastructure and expertise. ISR Systems device agnostic, open standard solution tracks container movement and key conditions in the container portion of the logistics chain. Working together, Franwell and Universal's ISR Systems plan to provide test results to a variety of clients with these special challenges in their logistics process, with further proof-of-concept and custom solutions as warranted. Franwell Inc. has also brought the University of Florida Research Center for Food Distribution and Retailing (Dr. Jean Pierre Emond and Dr. Jeffrey K. Brecht, Co-Directors) into this project, adding graduate student field experience, faculty analysis and formal publication of the results of the project. Franwell Inc. and the graduate student will go to Guatemala City to finish the pilot test and recover loaner equipment on March 17th, 2006. While this particular project is focused on a Food Aid shipment, it has the interest of other agencies and parties with similar needs. The effort of the State of Alaska to make this project happen, and to enable testing of RFID and GPS tracking technology has potentially far reaching benefits.

"We are excited about participating in the Alaska Food Aid project as it represents the best of the American people as they generously give billions of dollars of support to the needy around the globe," stated Chris Terry, Universal's ISR Systems Vice President. "Unfortunately aid shipments do not always get to the people whom need it most. Our Container Guardian™ Global Tracking System powered by our RFIDCentral™ Platform can provide the exact location and condition of aid shipments around the world thus making sure it reaches its intended destination and recipients," added Mr. Terry.

Every year tons of charitable aid from the United States is lost. Sometimes it is a result of criminal activity, others times logistic. Container Guardian™ and its RFIDCentral™ platform provides shipment visibility and automated alerts, which means global aid shipments can be managed in real time, reducing losses and saving the American taxpayer millions of dollars. In some cases the rapid location of urgently needed aid can even save lives. RFIDCentral™ alerts are fully customizable: they can provide notification if a container is off course (geo-fencing), misplaced, opened without authorization, or exposed to excessive temperature for example. More advanced visibility provides real time container inventory, making sure deliveries of aid are accurate for exact location.

"This project is a milestone in the use of technology with regard to aid shipments. We have chosen a best of breed approach as we have assembled a diverse team to deliver the solution we wanted. RFIDCentral was the only package we could find that provided the real time visibility integrated with RFID" stated Bruce Schactler, Project Manager, State of Alaska Department of Commerce, Community and Economic Development.

The State of Alaska's Department of Commerce, Community and Economic Development along with local Alaska fishermen organized under the Cordova District Fishermen United underwrote the test project. This project under the recommendation of Mr. William C. Noll the Commissioner of the Department of Commerce, Community and Economic Development provides accountability, delivery and security of the shipment to insure it reaches the Children of Guatemala.

Kevin Adams, Logistics Coordinator, State of Alaska said "ISR Systems has been a pleasure to work with, the company pulled out the stops to make sure this project got off on time. We cannot say enough good things about them."

The results of the project will likely be presented in April at the annual USDA Food Aid Conference. "We look forward to a successful completion of the test project and the opportunity to present the findings to everyone in the food aid community" remarked Mr. Schactler.

Newport Beach, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/24/2006 -- Universal Guardian Holdings, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: UGHO - News), a full service provider of non-lethal protection products, global supply chain logistics systems and security services to protect against terrorist, criminal and security threats to governments and businesses worldwide, announced that its Services Group subsidiary, Secure Risks - Strategic Security Solutions (SR-SSSI), has been awarded a new contract from PAE-HSC Joint Venture to provide security support services to the Justice Sector Support Program for Afghanistan under PAE-HSC's prime contract with the United States Department of State.

"This new contract represents yet another expansion of our operations in the region and clearly demonstrates the confidence that companies such as PAE-HSC have in our organization's ability to deliver the highest level of strategic and tactical security services to the U.S. government agencies," stated Bruce Braes, Managing Director of SR-SSSI. "We continue to demonstrate solid revenue growth in our business group by securing new contracts. We now hold executed contracts in excess of $19.25 Million USD in value for FY 2006, along with options to extend existing contracts which, if exercised, are anticipated to have a projected value of $60 Million USD over the course of the next three years," continued Mr. Braes.

Considering last years revenues for the first 9 months of approximately $8.8 million and the 2005 year end projection of approximately $11.7 million these new in hand contracts represent a massive gain in new business for the Company and it's only the 1st quarter. With 9 months left in 2006 and 2 other divisions (ISR Systems and Shield Defense) we believe the 2 x market capitalization to projected revenue is extremely low based on the current price of $.92 cents. We believe at the current pace the Company is securing new contract business that the 2006 year over year revenue projections will match or exceed last years projected 185% revenue increase. The Company should easily attain based on these projections the 2006 $35 million forecast UGHO publicly announced. We also feel that the client list involved with the Company leaves a tremendous amount of room for expansion worldwide on existing contracts.

The client list includes:

• U.S. Department of Homeland Security

• U.S. Department of State

• U.S. Army

• U.S. Navy

• U.S. Air Force

• British Government

• British Nuclear Energy

• Canadian Foreign Ministry

• Government of the Netherlands

• Indonesian National Police

• Argentine Foreign Ministry

• International Reconstruction and Development Agency • Lockheed Martin

• Northrop Grumman

• Boeing

• Raytheon

• BAE

• United Technologies

• Exxon Mobil

• Fluor International

• Bechtel

• ING Barings Bank / International Afghanistan Bank

• Standard and Chartered Bank

• Coca Cola

With an up and coming non lethal weapons division currently in pilot programs with notables such as the Los Angles Sheriff's Department and distribution partners such as U.S. Cavalry and Mexican distributor, VICGA, SA of Monterrey, Mexico we believe that sizable sales from this division are on target.

Add in the RFID division and the current cargo tracking test ongoing with the State of Alaska and Franwell (The results of the project will likely be presented in April at the annual USDA Food Aid Conference) as well as the incredible opportunity to have a hand in the recent hot topic of Port and Container Security we can only reach one conclusion…..

Newport Beach, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/3/2006 -- UNIVERSAL GUARDIAN HOLDINGS, INC. (OTCBB: UGHO), an emerging global leader in inter-modal transportation security, global supply chain RFID systems, tactical products and security services to protect against terrorist, criminal and security threats, today announced that its Universal Guardian's Systems Group, ISR Systems, will deploy its RFIDCentral™ Print Farm on March 27, 2006 in Hong Kong to enable companies whom manufacture products in Asia to meet international retailer mandates without purchasing or deploying any equipment.

"RFID is still new to many companies, they want to get started but are reluctant because of costs and technical challenges associated with their suppliers or manufacturing operations. Our new RFIDCentral™ Print Farm utilizes Zebra Technologies advanced printers in combination with our powerful RFIDCentral™ platform to enable suppliers and manufacturers of all sizes to harness the efficiency and emerging RFID mandates without incurring additional system expense. We can provide EPC (Electronic Product Code) RFID tags for goods manufactured in Asia within 24 hours," stated Herbert Goertz, Universal's ISR Systems President.

ISR Systems RFIDCentral™ software suite is a simple yet powerful web based system that provides advanced supply chain visibility and control including standard interfaces to the major ERP packages and retailer systems. From any web browser users can securely log into their system and print electronic product codes (EPC) and retailer compliant RFID labels, generate advanced shipping notices (ASNs), check inventory levels, and locate shipments.

"We are excited about working with Universal's ISR Systems in Asia, the company has an extensive history in China with RFID supply chain solutions" stated Bob Cornick, Vice President and General Manager of RFID, Zebra Technologies Corporation. "The volume of goods produced in Asia is astronomical and we see a huge market for RFID source tagging. We think ISR System's RFIDCentral™ combined with Zebra printing solutions is a win-win combination which can provide immediate RFID tagged Asian goods," continued Mr. Cornick.

Newport Beach, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/1/2006 -- UNIVERSAL GUARDIAN HOLDINGS, INC. (OTCBB: UGHO), an emerging global leader in inter-modal transportation security, global supply chain security and visibility RFID systems, tactical products and security services to protect against terrorist, criminal and security threats, today announced that its Universal Guardian's Systems Group, ISR Systems, has been selected to participate in a pilot program being conducted by the State of Alaska Department of Commerce, Community and Economic Development, the Cordova District Fisherman United group as well as Franwell Inc, to track a shipment of RFID tagged wild Alaska canned salmon from Seattle to the Country of Guatemala, where the food will be distributed to the needy and school children.

Franwell, a leader in the research, development, and implementation of RFID technology for food supply chain operations, selected Universal Guardian Systems Group's Container Guardian™ tracking system as an integral solution for an existing project with RFID case/pallet tags and RFID temperature tags. One of purposes of this project is to test the use of portable RFID reader/antenna configurations with localized software to enable the implementation for the entire logistics chain, including countries without normal infrastructure and expertise. ISR Systems device agnostic, open standard solution tracks container movement and key conditions in the container portion of the logistics chain. Working together, Franwell and Universal's ISR Systems plan to provide test results to a variety of clients with these special challenges in their logistics process, with further proof-of-concept and custom solutions as warranted. Franwell Inc. has also brought the University of Florida Research Center for Food Distribution and Retailing (Dr. Jean Pierre Emond and Dr. Jeffrey K. Brecht, Co-Directors) into this project, adding graduate student field experience, faculty analysis and formal publication of the results of the project. Franwell Inc. and the graduate student will go to Guatemala City to finish the pilot test and recover loaner equipment on March 17th, 2006. While this particular project is focused on a Food Aid shipment, it has the interest of other agencies and parties with similar needs. The effort of the State of Alaska to make this project happen, and to enable testing of RFID and GPS tracking technology has potentially far reaching benefits.

"We are excited about participating in the Alaska Food Aid project as it represents the best of the American people as they generously give billions of dollars of support to the needy around the globe," stated Chris Terry, Universal's ISR Systems Vice President. "Unfortunately aid shipments do not always get to the people whom need it most. Our Container Guardian™ Global Tracking System powered by our RFIDCentral™ Platform can provide the exact location and condition of aid shipments around the world thus making sure it reaches its intended destination and recipients," added Mr. Terry.

Every year tons of charitable aid from the United States is lost. Sometimes it is a result of criminal activity, others times logistic. Container Guardian™ and its RFIDCentral™ platform provides shipment visibility and automated alerts, which means global aid shipments can be managed in real time, reducing losses and saving the American taxpayer millions of dollars. In some cases the rapid location of urgently needed aid can even save lives. RFIDCentral™ alerts are fully customizable: they can provide notification if a container is off course (geo-fencing), misplaced, opened without authorization, or exposed to excessive temperature for example. More advanced visibility provides real time container inventory, making sure deliveries of aid are accurate for exact location.

"This project is a milestone in the use of technology with regard to aid shipments. We have chosen a best of breed approach as we have assembled a diverse team to deliver the solution we wanted. RFIDCentral was the only package we could find that provided the real time visibility integrated with RFID" stated Bruce Schactler, Project Manager, State of Alaska Department of Commerce, Community and Economic Development.

The State of Alaska's Department of Commerce, Community and Economic Development along with local Alaska fishermen organized under the Cordova District Fishermen United underwrote the test project. This project under the recommendation of Mr. William C. Noll the Commissioner of the Department of Commerce, Community and Economic Development provides accountability, delivery and security of the shipment to insure it reaches the Children of Guatemala.

Kevin Adams, Logistics Coordinator, State of Alaska said "ISR Systems has been a pleasure to work with, the company pulled out the stops to make sure this project got off on time. We cannot say enough good things about them."

The results of the project will likely be presented in April at the annual USDA Food Aid Conference. "We look forward to a successful completion of the test project and the opportunity to present the findings to everyone in the food aid community" remarked Mr. Schactler.

Newport Beach, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/24/2006 -- Universal Guardian Holdings, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: UGHO - News), a full service provider of non-lethal protection products, global supply chain logistics systems and security services to protect against terrorist, criminal and security threats to governments and businesses worldwide, announced that its Services Group subsidiary, Secure Risks - Strategic Security Solutions (SR-SSSI), has been awarded a new contract from PAE-HSC Joint Venture to provide security support services to the Justice Sector Support Program for Afghanistan under PAE-HSC's prime contract with the United States Department of State.

"This new contract represents yet another expansion of our operations in the region and clearly demonstrates the confidence that companies such as PAE-HSC have in our organization's ability to deliver the highest level of strategic and tactical security services to the U.S. government agencies," stated Bruce Braes, Managing Director of SR-SSSI. "We continue to demonstrate solid revenue growth in our business group by securing new contracts. We now hold executed contracts in excess of $19.25 Million USD in value for FY 2006, along with options to extend existing contracts which, if exercised, are anticipated to have a projected value of $60 Million USD over the course of the next three years," continued Mr. Braes.

Considering last years revenues for the first 9 months of approximately $8.8 million and the 2005 year end projection of approximately $11.7 million these new in hand contracts represent a massive gain in new business for the Company and it's only the 1st quarter. With 9 months left in 2006 and 2 other divisions (ISR Systems and Shield Defense) we believe the 2 x market capitalization to projected revenue is extremely low based on the current price of $.92 cents. We believe at the current pace the Company is securing new contract business that the 2006 year over year revenue projections will match or exceed last years projected 185% revenue increase. The Company should easily attain based on these projections the 2006 $35 million forecast UGHO publicly announced. We also feel that the client list involved with the Company leaves a tremendous amount of room for expansion worldwide on existing contracts.

The client list includes:

• U.S. Department of Homeland Security

• U.S. Department of State

• U.S. Army

• U.S. Navy

• U.S. Air Force

• British Government

• British Nuclear Energy

• Canadian Foreign Ministry

• Government of the Netherlands

• Indonesian National Police

• Argentine Foreign Ministry

• International Reconstruction and Development Agency • Lockheed Martin

• Northrop Grumman

• Boeing

• Raytheon

• BAE

• United Technologies

• Exxon Mobil

• Fluor International

• Bechtel

• ING Barings Bank / International Afghanistan Bank

• Standard and Chartered Bank

• Coca Cola

With an up and coming non lethal weapons division currently in pilot programs with notables such as the Los Angles Sheriff's Department and distribution partners such as U.S. Cavalry and Mexican distributor, VICGA, SA of Monterrey, Mexico we believe that sizable sales from this division are on target.

Add in the RFID division and the current cargo tracking test ongoing with the State of Alaska and Franwell (The results of the project will likely be presented in April at the annual USDA Food Aid Conference) as well as the incredible opportunity to have a hand in the recent hot topic of Port and Container Security we can only reach one conclusion…..

Newport Beach, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/3/2006 -- UNIVERSAL GUARDIAN HOLDINGS, INC. (OTCBB: UGHO), an emerging global leader in inter-modal transportation security, global supply chain RFID systems, tactical products and security services to protect against terrorist, criminal and security threats, today announced that its Universal Guardian's Systems Group, ISR Systems, will deploy its RFIDCentral™ Print Farm on March 27, 2006 in Hong Kong to enable companies whom manufacture products in Asia to meet international retailer mandates without purchasing or deploying any equipment.

"RFID is still new to many companies, they want to get started but are reluctant because of costs and technical challenges associated with their suppliers or manufacturing operations. Our new RFIDCentral™ Print Farm utilizes Zebra Technologies advanced printers in combination with our powerful RFIDCentral™ platform to enable suppliers and manufacturers of all sizes to harness the efficiency and emerging RFID mandates without incurring additional system expense. We can provide EPC (Electronic Product Code) RFID tags for goods manufactured in Asia within 24 hours," stated Herbert Goertz, Universal's ISR Systems President.

ISR Systems RFIDCentral™ software suite is a simple yet powerful web based system that provides advanced supply chain visibility and control including standard interfaces to the major ERP packages and retailer systems. From any web browser users can securely log into their system and print electronic product codes (EPC) and retailer compliant RFID labels, generate advanced shipping notices (ASNs), check inventory levels, and locate shipments.

"We are excited about working with Universal's ISR Systems in Asia, the company has an extensive history in China with RFID supply chain solutions" stated Bob Cornick, Vice President and General Manager of RFID, Zebra Technologies Corporation. "The volume of goods produced in Asia is astronomical and we see a huge market for RFID source tagging. We think ISR System's RFIDCentral™ combined with Zebra printing solutions is a win-win combination which can provide immediate RFID tagged Asian goods," continued Mr. Cornick.

Newport Beach, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/1/2006 -- UNIVERSAL GUARDIAN HOLDINGS, INC. (OTCBB: UGHO), an emerging global leader in inter-modal transportation security, global supply chain security and visibility RFID systems, tactical products and security services to protect against terrorist, criminal and security threats, today announced that its Universal Guardian's Systems Group, ISR Systems, has been selected to participate in a pilot program being conducted by the State of Alaska Department of Commerce, Community and Economic Development, the Cordova District Fisherman United group as well as Franwell Inc, to track a shipment of RFID tagged wild Alaska canned salmon from Seattle to the Country of Guatemala, where the food will be distributed to the needy and school children.

Franwell, a leader in the research, development, and implementation of RFID technology for food supply chain operations, selected Universal Guardian Systems Group's Container Guardian™ tracking system as an integral solution for an existing project with RFID case/pallet tags and RFID temperature tags. One of purposes of this project is to test the use of portable RFID reader/antenna configurations with localized software to enable the implementation for the entire logistics chain, including countries without normal infrastructure and expertise. ISR Systems device agnostic, open standard solution tracks container movement and key conditions in the container portion of the logistics chain. Working together, Franwell and Universal's ISR Systems plan to provide test results to a variety of clients with these special challenges in their logistics process, with further proof-of-concept and custom solutions as warranted. Franwell Inc. has also brought the University of Florida Research Center for Food Distribution and Retailing (Dr. Jean Pierre Emond and Dr. Jeffrey K. Brecht, Co-Directors) into this project, adding graduate student field experience, faculty analysis and formal publication of the results of the project. Franwell Inc. and the graduate student will go to Guatemala City to finish the pilot test and recover loaner equipment on March 17th, 2006. While this particular project is focused on a Food Aid shipment, it has the interest of other agencies and parties with similar needs. The effort of the State of Alaska to make this project happen, and to enable testing of RFID and GPS tracking technology has potentially far reaching benefits.

"We are excited about participating in the Alaska Food Aid project as it represents the best of the American people as they generously give billions of dollars of support to the needy around the globe," stated Chris Terry, Universal's ISR Systems Vice President. "Unfortunately aid shipments do not always get to the people whom need it most. Our Container Guardian™ Global Tracking System powered by our RFIDCentral™ Platform can provide the exact location and condition of aid shipments around the world thus making sure it reaches its intended destination and recipients," added Mr. Terry.

Every year tons of charitable aid from the United States is lost. Sometimes it is a result of criminal activity, others times logistic. Container Guardian™ and its RFIDCentral™ platform provides shipment visibility and automated alerts, which means global aid shipments can be managed in real time, reducing losses and saving the American taxpayer millions of dollars. In some cases the rapid location of urgently needed aid can even save lives. RFIDCentral™ alerts are fully customizable: they can provide notification if a container is off course (geo-fencing), misplaced, opened without authorization, or exposed to excessive temperature for example. More advanced visibility provides real time container inventory, making sure deliveries of aid are accurate for exact location.

"This project is a milestone in the use of technology with regard to aid shipments. We have chosen a best of breed approach as we have assembled a diverse team to deliver the solution we wanted. RFIDCentral was the only package we could find that provided the real time visibility integrated with RFID" stated Bruce Schactler, Project Manager, State of Alaska Department of Commerce, Community and Economic Development.

The State of Alaska's Department of Commerce, Community and Economic Development along with local Alaska fishermen organized under the Cordova District Fishermen United underwrote the test project. This project under the recommendation of Mr. William C. Noll the Commissioner of the Department of Commerce, Community and Economic Development provides accountability, delivery and security of the shipment to insure it reaches the Children of Guatemala.

Kevin Adams, Logistics Coordinator, State of Alaska said "ISR Systems has been a pleasure to work with, the company pulled out the stops to make sure this project got off on time. We cannot say enough good things about them."

The results of the project will likely be presented in April at the annual USDA Food Aid Conference. "We look forward to a successful completion of the test project and the opportunity to present the findings to everyone in the food aid community" remarked Mr. Schactler.

"This new contract represents yet another expansion of our operations in the region and clearly demonstrates the confidence that companies such as PAE-HSC have in our organization's ability to deliver the highest level of strategic and tactical security services to the U.S. government agencies," stated Bruce Braes, Managing Director of SR-SSSI. "We continue to demonstrate solid revenue growth in our business group by securing new contracts. We now hold executed contracts in excess of $19.25 Million USD in value for FY 2006, along with options to extend existing contracts which, if exercised, are anticipated to have a projected value of $60 Million USD over the course of the next three years," continued Mr. Braes.

Considering last years revenues for the first 9 months of approximately $8.8 million and the 2005 year end projection of approximately $11.7 million these new in hand contracts represent a massive gain in new business for the Company and it's only the 1st quarter. With 9 months left in 2006 and 2 other divisions (ISR Systems and Shield Defense) we believe the 2 x market capitalization to projected revenue is extremely low based on the current price of $.92 cents. We believe at the current pace the Company is securing new contract business that the 2006 year over year revenue projections will match or exceed last years projected 185% revenue increase. The Company should easily attain based on these projections the 2006 $35 million forecast UGHO publicly announced. We also feel that the client list involved with the Company leaves a tremendous amount of room for expansion worldwide on existing contracts.

The client list includes:

• U.S. Department of Homeland Security

• U.S. Department of State

• U.S. Army

• U.S. Navy

• U.S. Air Force

• British Government

• British Nuclear Energy

• Canadian Foreign Ministry

• Government of the Netherlands

• Indonesian National Police

• Argentine Foreign Ministry

• International Reconstruction and Development Agency • Lockheed Martin

• Northrop Grumman

• Boeing

• Raytheon

• BAE

• United Technologies

• Exxon Mobil

• Fluor International

• Bechtel

• ING Barings Bank / International Afghanistan Bank

• Standard and Chartered Bank

• Coca Cola

With an up and coming non lethal weapons division currently in pilot programs with notables such as the Los Angles Sheriff's Department and distribution partners such as U.S. Cavalry and Mexican distributor, VICGA, SA of Monterrey, Mexico we believe that sizable sales from this division are on target.

Add in the RFID division and the current cargo tracking test ongoing with the State of Alaska and Franwell (The results of the project will likely be presented in April at the annual USDA Food Aid Conference) as well as the incredible opportunity to have a hand in the recent hot topic of Port and Container Security we can only reach one conclusion…..

Newport Beach, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/3/2006 -- UNIVERSAL GUARDIAN HOLDINGS, INC. (OTCBB: UGHO), an emerging global leader in inter-modal transportation security, global supply chain RFID systems, tactical products and security services to protect against terrorist, criminal and security threats, today announced that its Universal Guardian's Systems Group, ISR Systems, will deploy its RFIDCentral™ Print Farm on March 27, 2006 in Hong Kong to enable companies whom manufacture products in Asia to meet international retailer mandates without purchasing or deploying any equipment.

"RFID is still new to many companies, they want to get started but are reluctant because of costs and technical challenges associated with their suppliers or manufacturing operations. Our new RFIDCentral™ Print Farm utilizes Zebra Technologies advanced printers in combination with our powerful RFIDCentral™ platform to enable suppliers and manufacturers of all sizes to harness the efficiency and emerging RFID mandates without incurring additional system expense. We can provide EPC (Electronic Product Code) RFID tags for goods manufactured in Asia within 24 hours," stated Herbert Goertz, Universal's ISR Systems President.

ISR Systems RFIDCentral™ software suite is a simple yet powerful web based system that provides advanced supply chain visibility and control including standard interfaces to the major ERP packages and retailer systems. From any web browser users can securely log into their system and print electronic product codes (EPC) and retailer compliant RFID labels, generate advanced shipping notices (ASNs), check inventory levels, and locate shipments.

"We are excited about working with Universal's ISR Systems in Asia, the company has an extensive history in China with RFID supply chain solutions" stated Bob Cornick, Vice President and General Manager of RFID, Zebra Technologies Corporation. "The volume of goods produced in Asia is astronomical and we see a huge market for RFID source tagging. We think ISR System's RFIDCentral™ combined with Zebra printing solutions is a win-win combination which can provide immediate RFID tagged Asian goods," continued Mr. Cornick.

Newport Beach, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/1/2006 -- UNIVERSAL GUARDIAN HOLDINGS, INC. (OTCBB: UGHO), an emerging global leader in inter-modal transportation security, global supply chain security and visibility RFID systems, tactical products and security services to protect against terrorist, criminal and security threats, today announced that its Universal Guardian's Systems Group, ISR Systems, has been selected to participate in a pilot program being conducted by the State of Alaska Department of Commerce, Community and Economic Development, the Cordova District Fisherman United group as well as Franwell Inc, to track a shipment of RFID tagged wild Alaska canned salmon from Seattle to the Country of Guatemala, where the food will be distributed to the needy and school children.

Franwell, a leader in the research, development, and implementation of RFID technology for food supply chain operations, selected Universal Guardian Systems Group's Container Guardian™ tracking system as an integral solution for an existing project with RFID case/pallet tags and RFID temperature tags. One of purposes of this project is to test the use of portable RFID reader/antenna configurations with localized software to enable the implementation for the entire logistics chain, including countries without normal infrastructure and expertise. ISR Systems device agnostic, open standard solution tracks container movement and key conditions in the container portion of the logistics chain. Working together, Franwell and Universal's ISR Systems plan to provide test results to a variety of clients with these special challenges in their logistics process, with further proof-of-concept and custom solutions as warranted. Franwell Inc. has also brought the University of Florida Research Center for Food Distribution and Retailing (Dr. Jean Pierre Emond and Dr. Jeffrey K. Brecht, Co-Directors) into this project, adding graduate student field experience, faculty analysis and formal publication of the results of the project. Franwell Inc. and the graduate student will go to Guatemala City to finish the pilot test and recover loaner equipment on March 17th, 2006. While this particular project is focused on a Food Aid shipment, it has the interest of other agencies and parties with similar needs. The effort of the State of Alaska to make this project happen, and to enable testing of RFID and GPS tracking technology has potentially far reaching benefits.

"We are excited about participating in the Alaska Food Aid project as it represents the best of the American people as they generously give billions of dollars of support to the needy around the globe," stated Chris Terry, Universal's ISR Systems Vice President. "Unfortunately aid shipments do not always get to the people whom need it most. Our Container Guardian™ Global Tracking System powered by our RFIDCentral™ Platform can provide the exact location and condition of aid shipments around the world thus making sure it reaches its intended destination and recipients," added Mr. Terry.

Every year tons of charitable aid from the United States is lost. Sometimes it is a result of criminal activity, others times logistic. Container Guardian™ and its RFIDCentral™ platform provides shipment visibility and automated alerts, which means global aid shipments can be managed in real time, reducing losses and saving the American taxpayer millions of dollars. In some cases the rapid location of urgently needed aid can even save lives. RFIDCentral™ alerts are fully customizable: they can provide notification if a container is off course (geo-fencing), misplaced, opened without authorization, or exposed to excessive temperature for example. More advanced visibility provides real time container inventory, making sure deliveries of aid are accurate for exact location.

"This project is a milestone in the use of technology with regard to aid shipments. We have chosen a best of breed approach as we have assembled a diverse team to deliver the solution we wanted. RFIDCentral was the only package we could find that provided the real time visibility integrated with RFID" stated Bruce Schactler, Project Manager, State of Alaska Department of Commerce, Community and Economic Development.

The State of Alaska's Department of Commerce, Community and Economic Development along with local Alaska fishermen organized under the Cordova District Fishermen United underwrote the test project. This project under the recommendation of Mr. William C. Noll the Commissioner of the Department of Commerce, Community and Economic Development provides accountability, delivery and security of the shipment to insure it reaches the Children of Guatemala.

Kevin Adams, Logistics Coordinator, State of Alaska said "ISR Systems has been a pleasure to work with, the company pulled out the stops to make sure this project got off on time. We cannot say enough good things about them."

The results of the project will likely be presented in April at the annual USDA Food Aid Conference. "We look forward to a successful completion of the test project and the opportunity to present the findings to everyone in the food aid community" remarked Mr. Schactler.

Newport Beach, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/24/2006 -- Universal Guardian Holdings, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: UGHO - News), a full service provider of non-lethal protection products, global supply chain logistics systems and security services to protect against terrorist, criminal and security threats to governments and businesses worldwide, announced that its Services Group subsidiary, Secure Risks - Strategic Security Solutions (SR-SSSI), has been awarded a new contract from PAE-HSC Joint Venture to provide security support services to the Justice Sector Support Program for Afghanistan under PAE-HSC's prime contract with the United States Department of State.

"This new contract represents yet another expansion of our operations in the region and clearly demonstrates the confidence that companies such as PAE-HSC have in our organization's ability to deliver the highest level of strategic and tactical security services to the U.S. government agencies," stated Bruce Braes, Managing Director of SR-SSSI. "We continue to demonstrate solid revenue growth in our business group by securing new contracts. We now hold executed contracts in excess of $19.25 Million USD in value for FY 2006, along with options to extend existing contracts which, if exercised, are anticipated to have a projected value of $60 Million USD over the course of the next three years," continued Mr. Braes.

Considering last years revenues for the first 9 months of approximately $8.8 million and the 2005 year end projection of approximately $11.7 million these new in hand contracts represent a massive gain in new business for the Company and it's only the 1st quarter. With 9 months left in 2006 and 2 other divisions (ISR Systems and Shield Defense) we believe the 2 x market capitalization to projected revenue is extremely low based on the current price of $.92 cents. We believe at the current pace the Company is securing new contract business that the 2006 year over year revenue projections will match or exceed last years projected 185% revenue increase. The Company should easily attain based on these projections the 2006 $35 million forecast UGHO publicly announced. We also feel that the client list involved with the Company leaves a tremendous amount of room for expansion worldwide on existing contracts.

The client list includes:

• U.S. Department of Homeland Security

• U.S. Department of State

• U.S. Army

• U.S. Navy

• U.S. Air Force

• British Government

• British Nuclear Energy

• Canadian Foreign Ministry

• Government of the Netherlands

• Indonesian National Police

• Argentine Foreign Ministry

• International Reconstruction and Development Agency • Lockheed Martin

• Northrop Grumman

• Boeing

• Raytheon

• BAE

• United Technologies

• Exxon Mobil

• Fluor International

• Bechtel

• ING Barings Bank / International Afghanistan Bank

• Standard and Chartered Bank

• Coca Cola

With an up and coming non lethal weapons division currently in pilot programs with notables such as the Los Angles Sheriff's Department and distribution partners such as U.S. Cavalry and Mexican distributor, VICGA, SA of Monterrey, Mexico we believe that sizable sales from this division are on target.

Add in the RFID division and the current cargo tracking test ongoing with the State of Alaska and Franwell (The results of the project will likely be presented in April at the annual USDA Food Aid Conference) as well as the incredible opportunity to have a hand in the recent hot topic of Port and Container Security we can only reach one conclusion…..

Newport Beach, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/3/2006 -- UNIVERSAL GUARDIAN HOLDINGS, INC. (OTCBB: UGHO), an emerging global leader in inter-modal transportation security, global supply chain RFID systems, tactical products and security services to protect against terrorist, criminal and security threats, today announced that its Universal Guardian's Systems Group, ISR Systems, will deploy its RFIDCentral™ Print Farm on March 27, 2006 in Hong Kong to enable companies whom manufacture products in Asia to meet international retailer mandates without purchasing or deploying any equipment.

"RFID is still new to many companies, they want to get started but are reluctant because of costs and technical challenges associated with their suppliers or manufacturing operations. Our new RFIDCentral™ Print Farm utilizes Zebra Technologies advanced printers in combination with our powerful RFIDCentral™ platform to enable suppliers and manufacturers of all sizes to harness the efficiency and emerging RFID mandates without incurring additional system expense. We can provide EPC (Electronic Product Code) RFID tags for goods manufactured in Asia within 24 hours," stated Herbert Goertz, Universal's ISR Systems President.

ISR Systems RFIDCentral™ software suite is a simple yet powerful web based system that provides advanced supply chain visibility and control including standard interfaces to the major ERP packages and retailer systems.

"We are excited about working with Universal's ISR Systems in Asia, the company has an extensive history in China with RFID supply chain solutions" stated Bob Cornick, Vice President and General Manager of RFID, Zebra Technologies Corporation. "The volume of goods produced in Asia is astronomical and we see a huge market for RFID source tagging.

Newport Beach, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/1/2006 -- UNIVERSAL GUARDIAN HOLDINGS, INC. (OTCBB: UGHO), an emerging global leader in inter-modal transportation security, global supply chain security and visibility RFID systems, tactical products and security services to protect against terrorist, criminal and security threats, today announced that its Universal Guardian's Systems Group, ISR Systems, has been selected to participate in a pilot program being conducted by the State of Alaska Department of Commerce, Community and Economic Development, the Cordova District Fisherman United group as well as Franwell Inc, to track a shipment of RFID tagged wild Alaska canned salmon from Seattle to the Country of Guatemala, where the food will be distributed to the needy and school children.

Franwell, a leader in the research, development, and implementation of RFID technology for food supply chain operations, selected Universal Guardian Systems Group's Container Guardian™ tracking system as an integral solution for an existing project with RFID case/pallet tags and RFID temperature tags. One of purposes of this project is to test the use of portable RFID reader/antenna configurations with localized software to enable the implementation for the entire logistics chain, including countries without normal infrastructure and expertise. ISR Systems device agnostic, open standard solution tracks container movement and key conditions in the container portion of the logistics chain. Working together, Franwell and Universal's ISR Systems plan to provide test results to a variety of clients with these special challenges in their logistics process, with further proof-of-concept and custom solutions as warranted. Franwell Inc. has also brought the University of Florida Research Center for Food Distribution and Retailing (Dr. Jean Pierre Emond and Dr. Jeffrey K. Brecht, Co-Directors) into this project, adding graduate student field experience, faculty analysis and formal publication of the results of the project. Franwell Inc. and the graduate student will go to Guatemala City to finish the pilot test and recover loaner equipment on March 17th, 2006. While this particular project is focused on a Food Aid shipment, it has the interest of other agencies and parties with similar needs. The effort of the State of Alaska to make this project happen, and to enable testing of RFID and GPS tracking technology has potentially far reaching benefits.

"We are excited about participating in the Alaska Food Aid project as it represents the best of the American people as they generously give billions of dollars of support to the needy around the globe," stated Chris Terry, Universal's ISR Systems Vice President. "Unfortunately aid shipments do not always get to the people whom need it most. Our Container Guardian™ Global Tracking System powered by our RFIDCentral™ Platform can provide the exact location and condition of aid shipments around the world thus making sure it reaches its intended destination and recipients," added Mr. Terry.

Every year tons of charitable aid from the United States is lost. Sometimes it is a result of criminal activity, others times logistic. Container Guardian™ and its RFIDCentral™ platform provides shipment visibility and automated alerts, which means global aid shipments can be managed in real time, reducing losses and saving the American taxpayer millions of dollars. In some cases the rapid location of urgently needed aid can even save lives. RFIDCentral™ alerts are fully customizable: they can provide notification if a container is off course (geo-fencing), misplaced, opened without authorization, or exposed to excessive temperature for example. More advanced visibility provides real time container inventory, making sure deliveries of aid are accurate for exact location.

"This project is a milestone in the use of technology with regard to aid shipments. We have chosen a best of breed approach as we have assembled a diverse team to deliver the solution we wanted. RFIDCentral was the only package we could find that provided the real time visibility integrated with RFID" stated Bruce Schactler, Project Manager, State of Alaska Department of Commerce, Community and Economic Development.

The State of Alaska's Department of Commerce, Community and Economic Development along with local Alaska fishermen organized under the Cordova District Fishermen United underwrote the test project. This project under the recommendation of Mr. William C. Noll the Commissioner of the Department of Commerce, Community and Economic Development provides accountability, delivery and security of the shipment to insure it reaches the Children of Guatemala.

Kevin Adams, Logistics Coordinator, State of Alaska said "ISR Systems has been a pleasure to work with, the company pulled out the stops to make sure this project got off on time. We cannot say enough good things about them."

The results of the project will likely be presented in April at the annual USDA Food Aid Conference. "We look forward to a successful completion of the test project and the opportunity to present the findings to everyone in the food aid community" remarked Mr. Schactler.

"A minimum order in excess of $10,000 is required to qualify as a Cobra StunLight™ distributor," stated Shaunt Hartounian, Regional Director of North American sales.

The Cobra StunLight™ is designed to replace the standard police flashlight with a rugged, high intensity LED flashlight that provides escalating non-lethal use-of-force options. The Cobra StunLight™ instantly and continuously illuminates its target and launches a laser-aimed stream of OC (pepper) that can debilitate one or more suspects at distances of up to 21 feet or more.

Newport Beach, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/24/2006 -- Universal Guardian Holdings, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: UGHO - News), a full service provider of non-lethal protection products, global supply chain logistics systems and security services to protect against terrorist, criminal and security threats to governments and businesses worldwide, announced that its Services Group subsidiary, Secure Risks - Strategic Security Solutions (SR-SSSI), has been awarded a new contract from PAE-HSC Joint Venture to provide security support services to the Justice Sector Support Program for Afghanistan under PAE-HSC's prime contract with the United States Department of State.

"This new contract represents yet another expansion of our operations in the region and clearly demonstrates the confidence that companies such as PAE-HSC have in our organization's ability to deliver the highest level of strategic and tactical security services to the U.S. government agencies," stated Bruce Braes, Managing Director of SR-SSSI. "We continue to demonstrate solid revenue growth in our business group by securing new contracts. We now hold executed contracts in excess of $19.25 Million USD in value for FY 2006, along with options to extend existing contracts which, if exercised, are anticipated to have a projected value of $60 Million USD over the course of the next three years," continued Mr. Braes.

Considering last years revenues for the first 9 months of approximately $8.8 million and the 2005 year end projection of approximately $11.7 million these new in hand contracts represent a massive gain in new business for the Company and it's only the 1st quarter. With 9 months left in 2006 and 2 other divisions (ISR Systems and Shield Defense) we believe the 2 x market capitalization to projected revenue is extremely low based on the current price of $.92 cents. We believe at the current pace the Company is securing new contract business that the 2006 year over year revenue projections will match or exceed last years projected 185% revenue increase. The Company should easily attain based on these projections the 2006 $35 million forecast UGHO publicly announced. We also feel that the client list involved with the Company leaves a tremendous amount of room for expansion worldwide on existing contracts.

The client list includes:

• U.S. Department of Homeland Security

• U.S. Department of State

• U.S. Army

• U.S. Navy

• U.S. Air Force

• British Government

• British Nuclear Energy

• Canadian Foreign Ministry

• Government of the Netherlands

• Indonesian National Police

• Argentine Foreign Ministry

• International Reconstruction and Development Agency • Lockheed Martin

• Northrop Grumman

• Boeing

• Raytheon

• BAE

• United Technologies

• Exxon Mobil

• Fluor International

• Bechtel

• ING Barings Bank / International Afghanistan Bank

• Standard and Chartered Bank

• Coca Cola

With an up and coming non lethal weapons division currently in pilot programs with notables such as the Los Angles Sheriff's Department and distribution partners such as U.S. Cavalry and Mexican distributor, VICGA, SA of Monterrey, Mexico we believe that sizable sales from this division are on target.

Add in the RFID division and the current cargo tracking test ongoing with the State of Alaska and Franwell (The results of the project will likely be presented in April at the annual USDA Food Aid Conference) as well as the incredible opportunity to have a hand in the recent hot topic of Port and Container Security we can only reach one conclusion…..

"RFID is still new to many companies, they want to get started but are reluctant because of costs and technical challenges associated with their suppliers or manufacturing operations. Our new RFIDCentral™ Print Farm utilizes Zebra Technologies advanced printers in combination with our powerful RFIDCentral™ platform to enable suppliers and manufacturers of all sizes to harness the efficiency and emerging RFID mandates without incurring additional system expense. We can provide EPC (Electronic Product Code) RFID tags for goods manufactured in Asia within 24 hours," stated Herbert Goertz, Universal's ISR Systems President.

ISR Systems RFIDCentral™ software suite is a simple yet powerful web based system that provides advanced supply chain visibility and control including standard interfaces to the major ERP packages and retailer systems. From any web browser users can securely log into their system and print electronic product codes (EPC) and retailer compliant RFID labels, generate advanced shipping notices (ASNs), check inventory levels, and locate shipments.

"We are excited about working with Universal's ISR Systems in Asia, the company has an extensive history in China with RFID supply chain solutions" stated Bob Cornick, Vice President and General Manager of RFID, Zebra Technologies Corporation. "The volume of goods produced in Asia is astronomical and we see a huge market for RFID source tagging. We think ISR System's RFIDCentral™ combined with Zebra printing solutions is a win-win combination which can provide immediate RFID tagged Asian goods," continued Mr. Cornick.

Newport Beach, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/1/2006 -- UNIVERSAL GUARDIAN HOLDINGS, INC. (OTCBB: UGHO), an emerging global leader in inter-modal transportation security, global supply chain security and visibility RFID systems, tactical products and security services to protect against terrorist, criminal and security threats, today announced that its Universal Guardian's Systems Group, ISR Systems, has been selected to participate in a pilot program being conducted by the State of Alaska Department of Commerce, Community and Economic Development, the Cordova District Fisherman United group as well as Franwell Inc, to track a shipment of RFID tagged wild Alaska canned salmon from Seattle to the Country of Guatemala, where the food will be distributed to the needy and school children.

Franwell, a leader in the research, development, and implementation of RFID technology for food supply chain operations, selected Universal Guardian Systems Group's Container Guardian™ tracking system as an integral solution for an existing project with RFID case/pallet tags and RFID temperature tags. One of purposes of this project is to test the use of portable RFID reader/antenna configurations with localized software to enable the implementation for the entire logistics chain, including countries without normal infrastructure and expertise. ISR Systems device agnostic, open standard solution tracks container movement and key conditions in the container portion of the logistics chain. Working together, Franwell and Universal's ISR Systems plan to provide test results to a variety of clients with these special challenges in their logistics process, with further proof-of-concept and custom solutions as warranted. Franwell Inc. has also brought the University of Florida Research Center for Food Distribution and Retailing (Dr. Jean Pierre Emond and Dr. Jeffrey K. Brecht, Co-Directors) into this project, adding graduate student field experience, faculty analysis and formal publication of the results of the project. Franwell Inc. and the graduate student will go to Guatemala City to finish the pilot test and recover loaner equipment on March 17th, 2006. While this particular project is focused on a Food Aid shipment, it has the interest of other agencies and parties with similar needs. The effort of the State of Alaska to make this project happen, and to enable testing of RFID and GPS tracking technology has potentially far reaching benefits.

"We are excited about participating in the Alaska Food Aid project as it represents the best of the American people as they generously give billions of dollars of support to the needy around the globe," stated Chris Terry, Universal's ISR Systems Vice President. "Unfortunately aid shipments do not always get to the people whom need it most. Our Container Guardian™ Global Tracking System powered by our RFIDCentral™ Platform can provide the exact location and condition of aid shipments around the world thus making sure it reaches its intended destination and recipients," added Mr. Terry.

Every year tons of charitable aid from the United States is lost. Sometimes it is a result of criminal activity, others times logistic. Container Guardian™ and its RFIDCentral™ platform provides shipment visibility and automated alerts, which means global aid shipments can be managed in real time, reducing losses and saving the American taxpayer millions of dollars. In some cases the rapid location of urgently needed aid can even save lives. RFIDCentral™ alerts are fully customizable: they can provide notification if a container is off course (geo-fencing), misplaced, opened without authorization, or exposed to excessive temperature for example. More advanced visibility provides real time container inventory, making sure deliveries of aid are accurate for exact location.

"This project is a milestone in the use of technology with regard to aid shipments. We have chosen a best of breed approach as we have assembled a diverse team to deliver the solution we wanted. RFIDCentral was the only package we could find that provided the real time visibility integrated with RFID" stated Bruce Schactler, Project Manager, State of Alaska Department of Commerce, Community and Economic Development.

The State of Alaska's Department of Commerce, Community and Economic Development along with local Alaska fishermen organized under the Cordova District Fishermen United underwrote the test project. This project under the recommendation of Mr. William C. Noll the Commissioner of the Department of Commerce, Community and Economic Development provides accountability, delivery and security of the shipment to insure it reaches the Children of Guatemala.

Kevin Adams, Logistics Coordinator, State of Alaska said "ISR Systems has been a pleasure to work with, the company pulled out the stops to make sure this project got off on time. We cannot say enough good things about them."

The results of the project will likely be presented in April at the annual USDA Food Aid Conference. "We look forward to a successful completion of the test project and the opportunity to present the findings to everyone in the food aid community" remarked Mr. Schactler.

Newport Beach, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/24/2006 -- Universal Guardian Holdings, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: UGHO - News), a full service provider of non-lethal protection products, global supply chain logistics systems and security services to protect against terrorist, criminal and security threats to governments and businesses worldwide, announced that its Services Group subsidiary, Secure Risks - Strategic Security Solutions (SR-SSSI), has been awarded a new contract from PAE-HSC Joint Venture to provide security support services to the Justice Sector Support Program for Afghanistan under PAE-HSC's prime contract with the United States Department of State.

"This new contract represents yet another expansion of our operations in the region and clearly demonstrates the confidence that companies such as PAE-HSC have in our organization's ability to deliver the highest level of strategic and tactical security services to the U.S. government agencies," stated Bruce Braes, Managing Director of SR-SSSI. "We continue to demonstrate solid revenue growth in our business group by securing new contracts. We now hold executed contracts in excess of $19.25 Million USD in value for FY 2006, along with options to extend existing contracts which, if exercised, are anticipated to have a projected value of $60 Million USD over the course of the next three years," continued Mr. Braes.

Considering last years revenues for the first 9 months of approximately $8.8 million and the 2005 year end projection of approximately $11.7 million these new in hand contracts represent a massive gain in new business for the Company and it's only the 1st quarter. With 9 months left in 2006 and 2 other divisions (ISR Systems and Shield Defense) we believe the 2 x market capitalization to projected revenue is extremely low based on the current price of $.92 cents. We believe at the current pace the Company is securing new contract business that the 2006 year over year revenue projections will match or exceed last years projected 185% revenue increase. The Company should easily attain based on these projections the 2006 $35 million forecast UGHO publicly announced. We also feel that the client list involved with the Company leaves a tremendous amount of room for expansion worldwide on existing contracts.

The client list includes:

• U.S. Department of Homeland Security

• U.S. Department of State

• U.S. Army

• U.S. Navy

• U.S. Air Force

• British Government

• British Nuclear Energy

• Canadian Foreign Ministry

• Government of the Netherlands

• Indonesian National Police

• Argentine Foreign Ministry

• International Reconstruction and Development Agency • Lockheed Martin

• Northrop Grumman

• Boeing

• Raytheon

• BAE

• United Technologies

• Exxon Mobil

• Fluor International

• Bechtel

• ING Barings Bank / International Afghanistan Bank

• Standard and Chartered Bank

• Coca Cola

With an up and coming non lethal weapons division currently in pilot programs with notables such as the Los Angles Sheriff's Department and distribution partners such as U.S. Cavalry and Mexican distributor, VICGA, SA of Monterrey, Mexico we believe that sizable sales from this division are on target.

Add in the RFID division and the current cargo tracking test ongoing with the State of Alaska and Franwell (The results of the project will likely be presented in April at the annual USDA Food Aid Conference) as well as the incredible opportunity to have a hand in the recent hot topic of Port and Container Security we can only reach one conclusion…..

Newport Beach, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/3/2006 -- UNIVERSAL GUARDIAN HOLDINGS, INC. (OTCBB: UGHO), an emerging global leader in inter-modal transportation security, global supply chain RFID systems, tactical products and security services to protect against terrorist, criminal and security threats, today announced that its Universal Guardian's Systems Group, ISR Systems, will deploy its RFIDCentral™ Print Farm on March 27, 2006 in Hong Kong to enable companies whom manufacture products in Asia to meet international retailer mandates without purchasing or deploying any equipment.

"RFID is still new to many companies, they want to get started but are reluctant because of costs and technical challenges associated with their suppliers or manufacturing operations. Our new RFIDCentral™ Print Farm utilizes Zebra Technologies advanced printers in combination with our powerful RFIDCentral™ platform to enable suppliers and manufacturers of all sizes to harness the efficiency and emerging RFID mandates without incurring additional system expense. We can provide EPC (Electronic Product Code) RFID tags for goods manufactured in Asia within 24 hours," stated Herbert Goertz, Universal's ISR Systems President.

ISR Systems RFIDCentral™ software suite is a simple yet powerful web based system that provides advanced supply chain visibility and control including standard interfaces to the major ERP packages and retailer systems. From any web browser users can securely log into their system and print electronic product codes (EPC) and retailer compliant RFID labels, generate advanced shipping notices (ASNs), check inventory levels, and locate shipments.

"We are excited about working with Universal's ISR Systems in Asia, the company has an extensive history in China with RFID supply chain solutions" stated Bob Cornick, Vice President and General Manager of RFID, Zebra Technologies Corporation. "The volume of goods produced in Asia is astronomical and we see a huge market for RFID source tagging. We think ISR System's RFIDCentral™ combined with Zebra printing solutions is a win-win combination which can provide immediate RFID tagged Asian goods," continued Mr. Cornick.

Newport Beach, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/1/2006 -- UNIVERSAL GUARDIAN HOLDINGS, INC. (OTCBB: UGHO), an emerging global leader in inter-modal transportation security, global supply chain security and visibility RFID systems, tactical products and security services to protect against terrorist, criminal and security threats, today announced that its Universal Guardian's Systems Group, ISR Systems, has been selected to participate in a pilot program being conducted by the State of Alaska Department of Commerce, Community and Economic Development, the Cordova District Fisherman United group as well as Franwell Inc, to track a shipment of RFID tagged wild Alaska canned salmon from Seattle to the Country of Guatemala, where the food will be distributed to the needy and school children.

Franwell, a leader in the research, development, and implementation of RFID technology for food supply chain operations, selected Universal Guardian Systems Group's Container Guardian™ tracking system as an integral solution for an existing project with RFID case/pallet tags and RFID temperature tags. One of purposes of this project is to test the use of portable RFID reader/antenna configurations with localized software to enable the implementation for the entire logistics chain, including countries without normal infrastructure and expertise. ISR Systems device agnostic, open standard solution tracks container movement and key conditions in the container portion of the logistics chain. Working together, Franwell and Universal's ISR Systems plan to provide test results to a variety of clients with these special challenges in their logistics process, with further proof-of-concept and custom solutions as warranted. Franwell Inc. has also brought the University of Florida Research Center for Food Distribution and Retailing (Dr. Jean Pierre Emond and Dr. Jeffrey K. Brecht, Co-Directors) into this project, adding graduate student field experience, faculty analysis and formal publication of the results of the project. Franwell Inc. and the graduate student will go to Guatemala City to finish the pilot test and recover loaner equipment on March 17th, 2006. While this particular project is focused on a Food Aid shipment, it has the interest of other agencies and parties with similar needs. The effort of the State of Alaska to make this project happen, and to enable testing of RFID and GPS tracking technology has potentially far reaching benefits.

"We are excited about participating in the Alaska Food Aid project as it represents the best of the American people as they generously give billions of dollars of support to the needy around the globe," stated Chris Terry, Universal's ISR Systems Vice President. "Unfortunately aid shipments do not always get to the people whom need it most. Our Container Guardian™ Global Tracking System powered by our RFIDCentral™ Platform can provide the exact location and condition of aid shipments around the world thus making sure it reaches its intended destination and recipients," added Mr. Terry.

Every year tons of charitable aid from the United States is lost. Sometimes it is a result of criminal activity, others times logistic. Container Guardian™ and its RFIDCentral™ platform provides shipment visibility and automated alerts, which means global aid shipments can be managed in real time, reducing losses and saving the American taxpayer millions of dollars. In some cases the rapid location of urgently needed aid can even save lives. RFIDCentral™ alerts are fully customizable: they can provide notification if a container is off course (geo-fencing), misplaced, opened without authorization, or exposed to excessive temperature for example. More advanced visibility provides real time container inventory, making sure deliveries of aid are accurate for exact location.

"This project is a milestone in the use of technology with regard to aid shipments. We have chosen a best of breed approach as we have assembled a diverse team to deliver the solution we wanted. RFIDCentral was the only package we could find that provided the real time visibility integrated with RFID" stated Bruce Schactler, Project Manager, State of Alaska Department of Commerce, Community and Economic Development.

The State of Alaska's Department of Commerce, Community and Economic Development along with local Alaska fishermen organized under the Cordova District Fishermen United underwrote the test project. This project under the recommendation of Mr. William C. Noll the Commissioner of the Department of Commerce, Community and Economic Development provides accountability, delivery and security of the shipment to insure it reaches the Children of Guatemala.

Kevin Adams, Logistics Coordinator, State of Alaska said "ISR Systems has been a pleasure to work with, the company pulled out the stops to make sure this project got off on time. We cannot say enough good things about them."

The results of the project will likely be presented in April at the annual USDA Food Aid Conference. "We look forward to a successful completion of the test project and the opportunity to present the findings to everyone in the food aid community" remarked Mr. Schactler.
