An Inconvenient Wikileak

by Miri

A very inconvenient Wikileak was reported by the UK’s online newspaper, the Guardian:  The Obama administration instructed diplomats to gather information about other countries to identify leverage to use against them during climate change treaty negotiations.  In other words, this president employs Chicago thug politics not only here in the US–to unfairly win elections, to strong arm the People’s  representatives into ramming through legislation to transform America into his idea of a communist utopia, and to threaten bankers and auto companies–he also exports these same tactics overseas, in order to arm-twist representatives of other countries, to “nudge” them to vote the way he wants.  Get in line or else! 

No wonder the NY Times wouldn’t print the Climategate emails. One has to wonder what data have been collected on the owners and publishers of complicit lamestream media organizations.  The UK media seem to buy into the notion of global warming, despite the revelations of Climategate, and they uniformly place most of the blame for this fictional “dangerous” crisis on the US, because (cue the tired old meme) the US has only 5% of the world’s population but uses 25% of its resources.  Blah, blah, blah. 

Reporting on these Copenhagen accord cables, the Guardian writes, “The US diplomatic cables reveal how the US seeks dirt on nations opposed to its approach to tackling global warming; how financial and other aid is used by countries to gain political backing; how distrust, broken promises and creative accounting dog negotiations; and how the US mounted a secret global diplomatic offensive to overwhelm opposition to the controversial ‘Copenhagen accord’, the unofficial document that emerged from the ruins of the Copenhagen climate change summit in 2009.

Negotiating a climate treaty is a high-stakes game, not just because of the danger warming poses to civilisation but also because re-engineering the global economy to a low-carbon model will see the flow of billions of dollars redirected.” http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2010/dec/03/wikileaks-us-manipulated-climate-accord

Oh, they said a mouthful there.  WTPOTUS is well aware of the “re-engineering [of] the global economy” that’s going on–the wheeling and dealing that “will see the flow of billions [hey, it’s TRILLIONS] of dollars REDIRECTED” into the pockets of the chosen ones–the elites who plan on RULING the NWO.  We’ve been writing about this travesty for over a year.  The Global Warming MYTH–not global warming, the myth itself–is the true “dangerous crisis,” because it’s the excuse the elites will use to fundamentally transform the entire world into a Soros-imagined nightmare. Remember that Georgie’s nightmare begins with taking down the USA, just a peg, I’m sure. He famously stated, “The MAIN obstacle to a stable and JUST world is the UNITED STATES.” That’s why we’re being set up for the blame.  That’s why we’re supposed to pay reparations to the entire world.  The FREEDOM of the US is a threat to their longed-for global regime, which will be ruled by our betters, like George Soros and Barack Hussein Obama II, whoever HE is.  https://wtpotus.wordpress.com/2010/09/13/who-is-this-man-open-thread/

We the People know who’s invested so heavily in seeing Cap and Trade implemented. We know who had the inside dope about the “plan”–the raison d’être for the fiction known as “global warming.”  We know who’s hoping for that new paradigm, waiting for their ship to come in on the rising Tide:  George Soros, GE, Al Gore, Barack Hussein Obama II, Shorebank, the Tides Foundation, the Joyce Foundation (John Ayers, Billy’s bro), Goldman Sachs, among far too many others.  See https://wtpotus.wordpress.com/2010/04/28/15-trillion-scam-corruption-obama-collusion/#more-3021 for some background that will curl your hair for ya, or straighten it if it’s already curly.

The UK Guardian found a gem in one cable:  “Seeking negotiating chips, the US state department sent a secret cable on 31 July 2009 seeking human intelligence from UN diplomats across a range of issues, including climate change. The request ORIGINATED WITH THE CIA [emphasis added]. As well as countries’ negotiating positions for Copenhagen, diplomats were asked to provide evidence of UN environmental ‘treaty circumvention’ and deals between nations.”

Didja catch that one?  The CIA came up with the idea for the State Dept. to spy on UN diplomats.

US State Department spokesman PJ Crowley “tried to deflect criticism by repeatedly hinting that although the cables were signed by secretary of state, Hillary Clinton, and her predecessor, Condoleezza Rice, they originated with another agency. BUT HE REFUSED TO IDENTIFY IT [emphasis added].” 

I wonder why?  Leave it to the UK reporters, not the NY Times, to explain how this worked: “The intelligence shopping list is drawn up annually by the manager of Humint (human intelligence), a post created by the Bush administration in 2005 in a push to better co-ordinate intelligence after 9/11.

The manager of Humint SETS OUT PRIORITIES FOR THE COMING YEAR and sends them to the state department. The actual form of words used in the diplomatic cables is written by the state department but a US official confirmed tonight that the ORIGINAL DIRECTIVES ARE WRITTEN BY the ‘intelligence community'[emphasis added].”

Apparently, this initiative “breached two international treaties and could lead to the US being censured by the UN general assembly [gasp!] or even, in extreme circumstances, prosecution at the international criminal court. [Dare we hope to see Barry “frog-marched out of the White House” to stand trial before an international criminal court?  Consider the irony:  He, who supports international law and wants to subject We the People to international courts, hoist on his own petard.]

The targeting of diplomats from North Korea and the permanent representatives of the security council from China, Russia, France and the UK leaves the US government exposed to action from any of those countries.”

Way to go, Barry.  http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2010/dec/02/wikileaks-cables-cia-united-nations

Another interesting cable revealed how small countries are being bribed with promises of mega-bucks or else are being threatened that the bucks won’t be forthcoming unless they tow the Barry line:

“By 23 February 2010, the Maldives’ ambassador-designate to the US, Abdul Ghafoor Mohamed, told the US deputy climate change envoy, Jonathan Pershing, his country wanted ‘tangible assistance’, saying other nations would then realise ‘the advantages to be gained by compliance’ with the accord.

The Maldives were unusual among developing countries in embracing the accord so wholeheartedly, but other small island nations were secretly seen as vulnerable to financial pressure. Any linking of the BILLIONS of dollars of aid to political support is extremely controversial – nations most threatened by climate change SEE THE AID AS A RIGHT [emphasis added; they must have learned by example from oppressed minorities in the US] . . . ”

In the case of Ethiopia, they were told, “sign the accord or discussion ends now.” The one thing that becomes clear from reading all this is that the USA WILL PAY, whether it’s in the form of bribes, “aid,” or global reparations to mitigate a crisis that does not exist.  Redistribution of the USA’s wealth, on a global scale.  We the People WILL pay.

I saved the best for last:  “Perhaps the MOST AUDACIOUS APPEAL FOR FUNDS [emphasis added] revealed in the cables is from Saudi Arabia, the world’s second biggest oil producer and one of the 25 richest countries in the world. A secret cable sent on 12 February records a meeting between US embassy officials and lead climate change negotiator Mohammad al-Sabban. ‘The kingdom will need time to diversify its economy away from petroleum,’ [Sabban] said, noting a US commitment to help Saudi Arabia with its economic diversification efforts would ‘take the pressure off climate change negotiations’.” http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2010/dec/03/wikileaks-us-manipulated-climate-accord

From that Saudi cable: “Asked about tangible actions to reach national climate change goals, Al-Sabban said Saudi Arabia’s nationally appropriate actions would include carbon capture and storage (CCS) credits. He emphasized Saudi Arabia’s NEED FOR TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER AND FOREIGN DIRECT INVESTMENT TO MITIGATE THE ADVERSE IMPACT THAT EMISSIONS-REDUCING POLICIES MAY HAVE ON THE KINGDOM [emphasis added]. . . . The Kingdom will need time to diversify its economy away from petroleum, he said, noting that a U.S. COMMITMENT TO HELP SAUDI ARABIA with its economic DIVERSIFICATION efforts would ‘take the pressure off climate change negotiations.'”
http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/us-embassy-cables-documents/248643

So now We the People MUST, because we have committed to, transfer technology, directly invest (aka aid with our taxpayer funds–they like to call taxes “investments”), and help Saudi Arabia “diversify” their economy.  Puts that recent Saudi purchase of part of GM in a new light.  We’re also going to pay them for “carbon capture,” whatever that is.  

This is doubtless why our oil reserves were put off limits for drilling by this POTUS.  It’s to help the Saudis make all the dough they can from their remaining reserves, while economies still run on oil.   While “clean technologies” are being developed, that We the People will pay for and then promptly “transfer” to the Saudis, among others.  This last was a guess on my part, but I went looking and found what seems like confirmation:

From one cable, “Saudi officials are very concerned that a climate change treaty would significantly reduce their income just as they face significant costs to diversify their economy,” Smith [U.S. ambassador to Saudi Arabia] wrote. “The King is particularly sensitive to avoid Saudi Arabia being singled out as the bad actor, particularly on environmental issues.”

Matthew McDermott, at http://www.treehugger.com/files/2010/11/wikileaks-cables-u-s-pressured-saudi-arabia-back-copenhagen-accord.php writes, “All of which is historically interesting, but nothing revelatory. It was public knowledge at the time that Saudi Arabia was very much concerned (and no doubt still is) about efforts to get off fossil fuels reducing their national income. And we also know that the US exerted pressure on other nations as well, with US envoy Todd Stern saying in effect that nations which opposed the Accord would be cut off from any climate mitigation and adaptation aid.”

We the People are being fleeced, big time, and all in the name of a bogus crisis, and all because the global elites want a fundamental transformation of the entire world.

  1. Excellent commentary Miri! Amazing the Climate global warming or cooling (or whatever temperature it is this year ) keeps on trying to pass off their hoax on us and others in the world. We can’t imagine how after climate gate they would continue their blatant lies about things that don’t exist. Why? Money, money, money. They all have lots of money involved and already invested in pretending to be Green. They are still warning us about the global crisis that will occur if we don’t just do something! They already set up their specialty banks, funded “green” companies, bought off scientists, and planned to line their pockets with more green.

    Do we really believe that developing countries are worried about climate change..or do they just want the goodies that will come with it if they say they are? Their greedy hands are out, as they always are, for another infusion of cash. They will admit to being ” believers” so they can get “what is owed to them.” Obama redistributes and they get the benefits! (He is great giving away our hard earned dollars, yet he can’t send a check to his relatives!). Cheap? Hypocrite! Thief! Con-man!

    Has the WH been refitted with solar panels yet? Another unnecessary expenditure by Obama and family. (Sarah Obama has hers!) Has every lightbulb in the WH been changed to GE’s newest spiral one that is triple the cost of a regular light bulb? You know the one that needs special handling if it breaks, and has special disposal requirements because it is so toxic. By the way, how many of the 700,000 +/- windmills, that GE invested in, have been sold? Are all the “green products” Union made or are those jobs being shipped overseas to the Chinese or Indians? It would be interesting to see how many of those overseas companies have USA partners.

  2. Thanks. I will crosspost this link to your Wikileaks thread, unless you’ve done it already.

    What occurs to me is that this POTUS is obviously NOT working for We the People. He’s setting aside our oil resources in order to HELP the Saudis and hinder us from becoming energy independent. They don’t want more oil on the market. The Saudi reserves are running out and the sheiks want to make as much as possible while they can. If our oil was on the market or if we became independent from them, they’d be eating sand.

    This POTUS wants our energy costs to “skyrocket”. “Necessarily,” he says. He said this before the election and nobody listened or reported this to the American people. Why is it his opinion that our energy costs must NECESSARILY skyrocket? Because he wants to collect as much in taxes as he can from the American People in order to redistribute that wealth to the countries who, by “right”, deserve to be compensated, to receive reparations, for global warming that doesn’t exist. Or if it does exist, it’s the freaking fault of NATURE, not of We the People. He WANTS to hamstring America in order to bring us down. It’s only “fair.” He told a reporter that he doesn’t care if his schemes hurt the economy. He will do them anyway in the name of his notion of “fairness.”

    The NWO is being realized through the MYTH of global warming, but to come to pass it will require the Saudis to give up oil as their source of income. These fabulously wealthy elites know their days are numbered, if Barry gets his world transformation.

    So THIS POTUS, who is sworn to uphold the Constitution and look out for the AMERICAN people, is INTENTIONALLY harming the American people, risking our national security, because he puts the best interests of SAUDI ARABIA ahead of what’s best for AMERICA. This is treasonous behavior.

    Everything we see going on hinges on this global warming myth. Yes, the little countries are being bribed, bought off, paid off to go along with this scheme which IS NOTHING MORE THAN A WAY TO RATIONALIZE THE REDISTRIBUTION OF WEALTH THROUGHOUT THE WORLD. This is the creation of a global Marxist/Communist government. It requires the US to give up its way of life, its Constitution, its freedom. I fear that these FEMA camps exist to house those who don’t go along quietly. The global elites know that Americans won’t go down without a fight so if their peaceful fundamental transformation of America doesn’t work, this is Plan B.

    I wrote this post on the 4th, but held off on posting it so Miss Tickly’s story could run its course first. Drudge linked to the same stories yesterday, but he didn’t focus on the FACT that the freaking CIA is writing up the specs for the State Dept. spies.

    As for Saudi Arabia: America SHOULD BE invested in freeing the women of Saudi Arabia. Is ANY of our help via our commitment to helping them “diversify” their economy contingent upon them FREEING THE WOMEN OF SAUDI ARABIA from oppression? Not bloody likely. Saudi Arabia is concerned about how the move towards green economies will harm their bottom line. But our president seems oblivious to how that same move will harm America’s bottom line. Millions out of work. How many good jobs would come from opening up our resources to development? He’s more concerned about the welfare of Saudi Arabia’s economy than about America’s economy.

    • DO State looks like it is full of problems maybe…no wonder Hillary is running like hell….Wondering now if she got that job as a way to “tarnish” her when all is said and done…It is all pointing to DOS and CIA ?

      • I heard Newt Gingrich defending Hillary on FOX the other day. Today, I read that Newt’s more likely than not to run for POTUS in 2012.

  3. I do think it’s crucial to learn WHEN and WHY that SIPR-Net system was changed to allow the downloading of information. And WHO made that decision. That decision is the cause of the leak. Who is behind it?

  4. Because the current open thread is getting long, we can post news here, but I’d like for commenters to at least make a cursory attempt to weigh in on this topic.

    • They headline this story, “Don’t Look; Don’t Read.”

      “WASHINGTON — In a classic case of shutting the barn door after the horse has left, the Obama administration and the Department of Defense have ordered the hundreds of thousands of federal employees and contractors not to view the secret cables and other classified documents published by Wikileaks and news organizations around the world unless the workers have the required security clearance or authorization.”

      Why the heck not read them now? What’s to be gained by ordering employees not to read these things?

    • Rallies for Lt. Col. Terry Lakin will be held in front of Senators Jon Kyl and John McCain’s offices on Monday, December 6 in Arizona. How interesting that it was John McCain’s lawyer who was responsible for the scrubbing the wikipedia entry on Lt. Col. Lakin.

  5. I read today the results of a survey where half of Muslims in the world believe that the “West” doesn’t “respect them.” Gee, how sad. It’s a little hard to “respect” people who celebrate terrorist attacks that kill thousands, who create societies that oppress women, and who cling to a religion that espouses cutting off the heads of “infidels”. I’m just sayin’.

    I’d love to know whether it works both ways–did these pollsters ask Muslims if they respect “the West?”

  6. The Dream Act: Even if it goes down in flames, they’ve come up with a new ploy: A petition drive by “Latino” organizations is being pushed in Spanish-language newspapers. They want the US to give the millions of illegals here in the US “temporary protected status”, in other words a kind of amnesty, like refugee status, so they can’t be deported. Why? Because Mexico is such a dangerous place these days, what with beheadings, shootings of police, and drug cartels. Isn’t that special? Now they want to use this as an excuse to say it’s too dangerous to send people back where they came from.

    • I like this ploy instead.

      Perhaps they should join the Mexican militia in mass and drive out the drug cartels. 12 million returning Mexicans would have lots of power and the numbers would certainly be on their side. Why don’t they want to save their homeland? Where is their patriotism? They wave their flags here, and they should be waving them there.

  7. Miri,

    I just recalled that the Saudi Oil fields were “drying up.” This is from several years ago, but they were accused of super inflating the amount of oil they had in their fields and didn’t want anyone to know. It may have come out at the time the cost of oil was increasing substantially and OPEC was setting the prices. Anyone else remember this?

    • Yeah. I remember it. They probably are scared bleep-less when you think about it. Their entire “culture” is built around the sheiks having the proceeds from all this oil wealth. IIRC, that wasn’t even a country until the oil companies made it so. Set up the sheiks. They use radical Islam to occupy the minds of all the young men who have no jobs, so they don’t turn on the “royals” like OBL did. That’s one of the only things I agree with him on–that those autocrats ought to, “In the name of God, GO!” 🙂

  8. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is a new bureaucracy formed under this administration to “unwind” failing banks, among other things like monitoring loans and financial services. There is concern about the funding for this agency being unconstitutional because it is outside Congressional oversight.

    http://m.stltoday.com/STL/db_163339/contentdetail.htm;jsessionid=809C05ABA3A5D7ED00979940FD92F354?contentguid=Oo2tLRic&detailindex=0&pn=0&ps=3&full=true

    Mark Calabria of the Cato Institute says, “Let’s be very clear. This is essentially prioritizing money to fund an agency. It goes around the constitutional requirement for appropriations. Why not fund farm subsidies out of the Federal Reserve? Why even tax — why not just have the Federal Reserve print the money? If this isn’t enough to make people worry about inflation and debasement of the currency, I’m not sure what is. Removing this agency from the appropriations process all but assures un-accountability …. The structure is a radical change from legal precedent.”

    Everything Barry does “is a radical change from legal precedent,” including usurping the office of the presidency, given his lack of clear eligibility under the Constitution.

    • Wasn’t the woman chosen to head this agency, Elizabeth Warren, a Marxist? There was great controversy about her as I recall. She was another of Obama’s appointments that didn’t need congressional approval. She didn’t need? or get vetting, how unusual. A nice set-up too as she was only to answer to Obama and/or Geitner. (foxes guarding the hen house comes to mind). No problem there. She was ready to get down to business making changes especially to the credit card industry. I hope they do not fund this gem! In fact, I don’t know if it ever got funded. It might have been part of one of those secret jewels in the Obamacare bill.

      • You got it. I forgot about her but she is a huge MARXIST. What else would he hire? It’s one of the qualifications for the jobs. Can’t you just read their resumes?

        – supported Marxist causes since 1963
        – member of CPUSA
        – wrote a biography of Karl Marx
        – founding member of the ACLU
        (this is a joke, people)

        I think she was a recess appointment, but I may be mistaken. If anybody remembers, let us know. I’m too lazy to look it up. 🙂

  9. Miri, They arrested him this morning across the pond. He turned himself in to a police station.

    • Julian Assange Arrested in London
      Dec. 7, 2010 9:13 am ET Snips

      LONDON—WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was arrested in the U.K. early Tuesday on an international warrant related to sexual-assault accusations in Sweden, setting up a battle over an extradition he has already pledged to fight. London’s Metropolitan Police said Mr. Assange appeared by appointment at a London police station at 9:30 a.m. local time Tuesday.

      The transfer of Mr. Assange to Sweden from the U.K. could take up to 90 days, National Criminal Police in Sweden said Tuesday. “The first question is if Assange agrees to extradition,” Superintendent Tommy Kangasvieri said in an interview. “If he does, Swedish authorities have 10 days to bring him to Sweden. However, if Assange decides to question the extradition, the case will be decided by British courts. This process can take up to 90 days, according to the European arrest warrant.”

      WikiLeaks strove for a business as usual tone. In a message posted on its Twitter feed, WikiLeaks said the arrest “won’t affect our operations: we will release more cables tonight as normal.

      Mr. Assange’s arrest is unrelated to his document-leaking activities, and neither he nor WikiLeaks has been charged with a crime in the U.S.

      Ironically, Assange made the top of Interpol’s most wanted list not for leaking classified information from the U.S. State Department, but for continuing to have sex with a Swedish woman after the condom they were using broke.

      http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748703296604576004914283739814.html#ixzz17RE3faS3

      • That last paragraph is more information than I wanted to know. 🙂

        I don’t care what they get him on, so long as they get him. He’s a terrorist. The ploy of having a “poison pill” ready to release if somebody arrests him or his staff is proof of that. This is what cyberterrorism looks like. Like Al Capone, so long as they get him, I don’t care what technicality they use.

  10. Rush Limbaugh Wants Julian Assange To Find Obama’s Birth Certificate
    Dec. 7, 2010

    If WikiLeaks TMZ ever becomes a reality maybe Rush could have his own segment. From yesterday’s radio show:

    “Where are the WikiLeaks documents to prove 9/11 was inside job by George Bush and Dick Cheney? Let me ask you liberals, where are these cables? “Where are the documents to prove Bush intentionally lied about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq in order to invade the country? Where is the WikiLeaks document, the State Department cable, whatever, that [Karl] Rove leaked Valerie Plame’s name to the media? Where’s all this good stuff? …

    “Where are the WikiLeaks cables proving that the CIA invented AIDS? Where is Obama’s birth certificate? Where’s the real good stuff? And how about all the hundreds of other left-wing lies we’ve been hearing about for years? [Is] WikiLeaks covering up for the United States?”

    http://www.businessinsider.com/rush-limbaugh-wants-julian-assange-to-find-obamas-birth-certificate-2010-12

    • Oh, ho! He said a mouthful there. I’m remembering that State Dept. investigation into the John O. Brennan’s employee’s breach of the passport files. March, 2008. When they sanitized Barry’s files. Remember that very heavily redacted report that was finally released to the public? State Dept.–Condi Rice, who met with Barry at the WH recently. Could, perhaps, the unredacted report have been somewhere among those thousands of cables? Truth will out.

  11. WikiLeaks Proves Obama’s Dereliction of Duty
    Leaked cables reveal a presidency’s ongoing national security failures.
    Dec. 7 Snips

    And the hits just keep on coming from WikiLeaks…. at least we learned about our own enemy within.

    The leaked memos confirm that our leaders are fully aware that our nation’s enemies are engaging in activities to undermine the United States. Yet armed with this knowledge, Barack Obama continues his foreign policy of appeasement. We’ve learned that terrorists now have access to nuclear material through a known state sponsor of terror. And the president’s inept policy of “let’s just talk more” remains the administration’s de facto position. It seems that all this “foreign affairs” stuff is just a distraction to this president. It’s really cutting into to his agenda of remaking America. It is now all too clear that defending this nation from our enemies is the last thing on the president’s mind. In this case, what we don’t know will hurt us.

    WikiLeaks documents have provided us with this timeline (from the Wall Street Journal):
    * In February 2009 the U.S. ambassador to Kyrgyzstan confronted his Chinese counterpart over allegations that China offered the former Soviet state $3 billion to close a U.S. air base there.
    * In September 2009 Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton expressed concern about a Chinese company selling French thermal-imaging technology to Iran that could be used against U.S. and allied forces in the Gulf.
    * In February 2010 Mrs. Clinton asked China to act on intelligence information that suggests Iran is trying to buy Russian gyroscopes and carbon fiber for its ballistic missiles from Chinese companies.
    * And in May 2010 Clinton expressed concern about Chinese companies exporting chemical weapons precursors to Iran. One cable stated that a Chinese contact told the American Embassy in Beijing in January that the widely reported hacking attack on Google was part of a coordinated campaign of computer sabotage carried out by government operatives, private security experts, and internet outlaws recruited by the Chinese government.

    Anyone else see a pattern here? It’s clear that President Obama is an ideological ally of the leadership in China. But he’s still America’s president, right?

    Add to all of this the revelation that U.S. officials believe that Beijing ordered a cyber-attack on the U.S. in which 15 percent of the world’s Internet traffic was diverted through Chinese servers for 18 minutes last spring. China is a hostile adversary to the United States.

    http://pajamasmedia.com/blog/wikileaks-proves-obamas-dereliction-of-duty/?singlepage=true

  12. Oh, so now the Chinese are trying to bribe smaller countries, too? That does prove that Barry’s an ideological ally of Red China. Both use thug tactics to get what they want. By hook or by crook. Crook being the operative word. Faker, too. Not to be confused with fakir, although he may be that, too.

  13. Remember Pearl Harbor Day. Pray for and honor our troops. God bless and keep them. We salute all veterans.

  14. The UK judge has denied ASSange bail. Awww, poor guy. Get used to bars, ASSange.

    This writer documents the proof found among the Wikileak cables of the existence of WMD in Iraq while Saddam was in power.

  16. This is a long article, but it provides insight into how the leak happened or didn’t happen:
    http://pajamasmedia.com/blog/wikileaks-and-u-s-computer-security-the-second-spy-theory/?singlepage=true

    Someone with knowledge of how these systems work says it’s possible Manning was a fall guy. “It seems to me that our ideal other source would be someone with broad access, either at CIA, in the Department of State, or in the national security apparatus in the White House.”

    Two out of three? I doubt it was Hillary’s people.

    He goes on, “So here’s the dilemma: If Manning really is the perpetrator, then there have been massive screw-ups, top to bottom, in the U.S. government’s management of classified data. If not, if Manning had a co-conspirator or if he’s the fall guy for someone else, then there may be someone who still has access to these networks, just waiting for the heat to come off in order to strike again.”

  17. Something really stinks here. Ohhhh, now they care about wikileaks… now that Bank of American and other domestic nefarious topics are up to bat. Bring them on! Leak, Leak, Leak, pleeeze.

    barky conceding the tax extension stinks too.
    I am wondering if it is his bogus biography or lack of documents that is the “hostage” or, if the inside actuaries have proven that millions of miserable people would uprise and take action in due time.

    He got a “heads up” on something. hmmmmm. what’s he up to?

    Did he buy the Dream Act?

    Manning is a patsy. no doubt about it.

    Statement from Wikileaks – Wednesday 8th December 2010
    Following the detention of Wikileaks founder and editor-in-chief Julian Assangem, Wikileaks spokesman Kristinn Hrafnsson said:

    “Today, Wikileaks editor-in-chief Julian Assange was refused bail by a UK court. While we are troubled by this bizarre decision, we know Julian is grateful for the support of both his legal team and prominent figures such as Ken Loach, Jemima Khan and John Pilger

    Jemima Khan ? See Annabel’s….interesting no ?

    • But in an exclusive interview with ABC News’ Jim Sciutto, Wikileaks’ spokesman Kristinn Hrafnsson insisted Assange’s arrest won’t alter the site’s calculated release of thousands of secret government cables, which still continues according to plan. The site published a new slate of cables Wednesday.

      “It is not derailing us in any way,” said Hrafnsson, adding that a group of five to six people is running Wikileaks’ operations in Assange’s absence. “This is a turning tide and starting a trend that you can’t really stop unless you want to shut down the Internet.”

      • Would this be a really fake way to take down the internet ? Could wikileaks guy be a contract labor kind of guy hired to do this ?
        More of those coincidences that make you go
        hummmmmm……..:

        • The timing of all of this is unbelievable. End of the lame duck session, Lankin trial, Obummers BC about to be exposed. This looks like we’re being setup.

          • What I can’t figure out is if ALL of them are in on this FRAUD, what could have possibly convinced them to go along with this? Are we being held hostage? Are WMD’s here a set to go off? Has Soros and others with Federal Reserve already taken over our financial system? Are they all under CIA mind control? What could possibly be their motive?

    US Government Will Boycott Nobel Peace Prize Ceremony

    The Government of the United States of America has announced that it will boycott the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony to be held in Oslo. It has instructed its Ambassador in Norway to refuse the invitation to the ceremony and not to take part in it.

    And this is different from the 2008 prize..how?

    Awarding the prize to ‘criminals’ is paramount to meddling in the internal affairs of the United States, the Foreign Minister said.

    Together with the United States, 18 countries will boycott the ceremony. The reason for the boycott may be found in the Nobel Prize’s recipient: The Wikileaks Organisation. The announcement of the winner in October had led to a diplomatic earthquake.

    The United States brought to bear heavy pressure on foreign diplomats, issuing them with letters demanding that their representatives abstain from taking part in the ceremony or face consequences. In these letters, the awarding of the Peace Nobel Prize to Wikileaks was called ‘obscene’. Countries ignoring the wish of the United States would face serious repercussions.

    . The Nobel Prize Committee has decided to leave the laureate’s chair empty in representation of all the countries bent on repressing free speech. This has only happened once before in Nobel history; in 1936, the prize was awarded to the German Carl von Ossietzky. Hitler’s diatribe at the time sounded about the same as what you read above.

    If you are not living in either China or the USA, rest assured that the possibility to shine for your home country might come in 2012 when your most prominent ‘criminal’ will receive the prize. As you see, even I bow to American pressure and use the newly political correct form of whistleblower, which is now ‘criminal’.

    • Upper Silesia (Czech: Horní Slezsko; German: Oberschlesien; Silesian German: Oberschläsing; Latin: Silesia Superior; Polish: Górny Śląsk; Silesian: Gůrny Ślůnsk[1]) is the southeastern part of the historical and geographical region of Silesia; Lower Silesia is to the northwest. Since the 9th century, Upper Silesia has been part of (chronologically) Greater Moravia, Bohemia, Poland, Holy Roman Empire, Austria, Prussia, and later of unified German Reich. It is currently split between Poland (Opole and Silesian Voivodeships) and the Czech Republic (Czech Silesia, or the Silesian-Moravian Region).

      Upper Silesia is situated in the Silesian highlands, between the upper Oder and upper Vistula rivers. The total population of the Upper Silesian Industry Area is 3,487,000.

      Opole Silesia, Cieszyn Silesia, and Austrian Silesia are historical parts of Upper Silesia. The territory of Opole Silesia composes much of Opole Voivodeship

  22. History

    19th century coat of arms of Upper Silesia.At the time of Svatopluk I and King Arnulf of Carinthia in the 9th century, Silesia was a part of Greater Moravia; after its destruction in the early 10th century, it was conquered by Bohemia. A number of earlier inhabitants of Silesia, the Silingi, remained in the region and they concentrated around the Zobten mountain and in a settlement named Niempsch (derived from a Slavic name for Germans).[citation needed]

    Upper Silesia was soon conquered by the newly installed dukes of the Polans and for several hundred years was part of Poland. This arrangement fell apart and, during the re-establishment of Poland under Casimir the Great, all of Silesia was specifically excluded as non-Polish land. In 1335 it came back under the rule of the Kingdom of Bohemia. Many towns were destroyed by the Mongols at the Battle of Legnica but were later rebuilt. By the 14th century, the influx of settlers into Upper Silesia stopped because of the plague. Latin, Czech and German language were used in the towns and cities and only in the 1550s (during the Protestant Reformation) did records with Polish names start to appear. The Roman Catholic Holy Roman Emperors of the Habsburg dynasty forcibly reintroduced Catholicism, led by the Jesuits.[citation needed]

    Lower Silesia and most of Upper Silesia became part of the Kingdom of Prussia in 1742 during the First Silesian War. A small part remained within the Habsburg-ruled Bohemian Crown as the Duchy of Upper and Lower Silesia, colloquially called Austrian Silesia.

    In the 19th century, Upper Silesia became an industrial area taking advantage of its plentiful coal and iron ore.

    [edit] 20th century
    In 1919, after World War I, the eastern part (with a majority of ethnic Poles) came under Polish rule as the Autonomous Silesian Voivodeship, while the mostly German-speaking western part remained part of the German Reich as the Province of Upper Silesia. From 1919-1921 three Silesian Uprisings occurred among the Polish-speaking populace of Upper Silesia; the Battle of Annaberg was fought in the region in 1921. In the Upper Silesia plebiscite, a majority of 60% voted against merging with Poland, with clear lines dividing Polish and German communities. The exact border, the maintenance of cross-border railway traffic and other necessary co-operations, as well as equal rights for all inhabitants in both parts of Upper Silesia, were all fixed by the German-Polish Accord on East Silesia,[2] signed in Geneva on May 15, 1922. On June 20, Germany ceded, de facto, the eastern parts of Upper Silesia, becoming part of the Autonomous Silesian Voivodeship of Poland.

    After 1945, almost all of Upper Silesia that was not ceded to Poland in 1922 was transferred to this state. A majority of the German-speaking population was expelled in accordance with the decision of the victorious Allied powers at their 1945 meeting at Potsdam. This expulsion program also included German speaking inhabitants of Lower Silesia, eastern Pomerania, Gdańsk (Danzig), and East Prussia. These German expellees were transported to the present day Germany (including the former East Germany), and they were replaced with Poles, many from former Polish provinces taken over by the USSR in the east. A good many German-speaking Upper Silesians were relocated in Bavaria. A small part of Upper Silesia stayed as part of Czechoslovakia as Czech Silesia.

    The expulsions of German-speakers did not totally eliminate the presence of a population that considered itself German. Upper Silesia, in 1945, had a considerable number of Roman Catholic mixed bilingual inhabitants that spoke both German and Polish dialects, and their Polish linguistic skills were solid enough for them to be allowed to remain in the area. With the fall of communism and Poland joining the European Union, there were enough of these remaining in Upper Silesia to allow for the recognition of the German minority in Poland by the Polish government

  23. No, I am not on the wrong post. I think this all connects…maybe not, but let us look a bit more.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lower_Silesia

    • This article is about the historical region. For the Polish administrative region, see Lower Silesian Voivodeship. For the former Prussian province, see Province of Lower Silesia.

      Coat of arms of Lower SilesiaLower Silesia (Polish: Dolny Śląsk; Czech: Dolní Slezsko, Latin: Silesia Inferior; German: Niederschlesien; Silesian German: Niederschläsing; Silesian: Dolny Ślůnsk); is the northwestern part of the historical and geographical region of Silesia; Upper Silesia is to the southeast. Throughout its history Lower Silesia has been under the control of medieval Poland, Bohemia, Austria, Prussia, and Germany. After 1945 the main part of the former Province of Lower Silesia became Polish, a smaller part remained German. A small part of the historical Lower Silesia belongs to the Czech Republic, namely the Jeseník District and Heřmanovice as well as Mnichov and Železná, parts of Vrbno pod Pradědem in Bruntál District. Prior to 1742 those lands formed the south part of the Duchy of Nysa.

      Traditional Silesian clothingThe southern border of Lower Silesia is mapped by the mountain ridge of the Sudetes, which are located on the Polish–Czech border. The westernmost point of the former Lower Silesian province can be found as far west as the small village Ortrand (now belonging to Brandenburg, Germany), whereas the Bóbr and Kwisa are considered being the historical western border. To the north, Silesia is bordered by the Barycz river, and to the east, by parts of Greater Poland.

      Polish Lower Silesia, the bulk of the historical region, is located mostly along the Oder River and is shared between the Lower Silesian, Lubusz, and Opole Voivodeships.

      A small part of the former Prussian Province of Lower Silesia on the western side of the Lusatian Neisse is located in Germany: namely the Landkreis Görlitz, the town of Görlitz, and the former Hoyerswerda district within Oberspreewald-Lausitz in eastern Germany. Apart from the small village Pechern (Sorbian: Pěchč), which became Silesian in 1413, that region historically belonged to Saxon Upper Lusatia. After the Napoleonic Wars, the region became part of the Prussian Province of Silesia in 1815, and after its division, part of the Province of Lower Silesia in 1919.

      I think Russia also played a role in the 9/11 attacks.

      Russia could not attack us directly without a heavy attack coming back at them. But Russia could use Jihadists as proxies to attack us. And the Marxists in our own government would make sure that any hints of a Russian connection would be removed from the archives/shredded/destroyed.

      Julian Assange should be awarded Nobel peace prize, suggests Russia.Russia urges Assange nomination in calculated dig at the US over WikiLeaks founder’s detention
      Dec. 9

      Russia has suggested that Julian Assange should be awarded the Nobel peace prize, in an unexpected show of support from Moscow for the jailed WikiLeaks founder. In what appears to be a calculated dig at the US, the Kremlin urged non-governmental organisations to think seriously about “nominating Assange as a Nobel Prize laureate”.

      Russia’s reflexively suspicious leadership appears to have come round to WikiLeaks, having decided that the ongoing torrent of disclosures are ultimately far more damaging and disastrous to America’s long-term geopolitical interests than they are to Russia’s.

      Subsequent disclosures, however, that Nato had secretly prepared a plan in case Russia invaded its Baltic neighbours have left the Kremlin smarting. Today Russia’s foreign minister Sergei Lavrov said Nato had to explain why it privately considered Russia an enemy while publicly describing it warmly as a “strategic partner” and ally.

      Nato should make clear its position on WikiLeaks cables published by the Guardian alleging that the alliance had devised plans to defend Poland, Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia against Russia, Lavrov said.

        • Jugend und Krieg [Bearbeiten]
          Wolfgang Neuss kam als Sohn von Otto und Elisabeth Neuss (geb. Gebauer) in Breslau zur Welt. Er hatte eine Schwester Eva (später verheiratete Eva de Bouyse). Nach der Volksschule begann Neuss eine Lehre als Schlachter, ging dann aber mit 15 Jahren nach Berlin, um Clown zu werden. Dieser Ausflug endete in der Jugendverwahranstalt des Berliner Polizeipräsidiums am Alexanderplatz.

          Während des Zweiten Weltkrieges war er zunächst beim Straßenbau im Arbeitsdienst, dann ab 1941 Soldat an der Ostfront. Er wurde mehrmals verwundet und erhielt das EK I.[2] Schließlich entzog er sich weiteren Kampfeinsätzen als MG-Schütze, indem er sich – nach eigener Angabe am 16. April 1943 im weißrussischen Ort Rschew – selbst verstümmelte.

          „Als ich siebzehn war, hab ich mir in Russland vor lauter Angst mal den Finger abgeschossen. War Krieg, und der Russe lag nur’n paar Meter entfernt von mir. Und ich wusste: Ich bin so kurzsichtig, dass ich sowieso nicht treffe. Eine Verletzung war die letzte Chance, aus dem Kessel rauszukommen. Ich nahm also den Karabiner 98k, ließ mich in einen Wassergraben fallen, hielt auf den Zeigefinger der linken Hand und drückte ab. Die Angst trieb mich zum Fortschritt.“[3]

          Nach anderer Darstellung handelte es sich bei der Geschichte von dem abgeschossenen Finger um eine Legende.[4]

          Kurz vor Kriegsende entging er dem Kampfeinsatz in Ostpreußen auf einem Lazarettschiff nach Dänemark. Die letzte Zeit des Krieges verbrachte er im Internierungslager in Flensburg.

          Bereits während seiner Lazarettaufenthalte und im Lager organisierte er bunte Abende, erzählte Witze und trat als Komiker auf. Aus diesem Talent machte er einen Beruf und wurde Kabarettist. Nach ersten Auftritten (als „Hansi Neuss“ oder „Peter Pips“) kam er Ende der 1940er Jahre bei einem Neun-Wochen-Engagement als Conférencier im Hamburger Hansa-Theater unter dem Namen Wolfgang Neuss groß heraus.

          Die zwei Wolfgangs [Bearbeiten]
          1949 lernte er Wolfgang Müller kennen, mit dem er sich auf Anhieb geistesverwandt fühlte. Fortan traten die beiden als Duo („Die zwei Wolfgangs“) auf. 1950 gingen sie nach West-Berlin, wo sie ein Engagement am Kabarett Die Bonbonniere annahmen. Im selben Jahr erhielt Neuss seine erste Filmrolle in Der Mann, der sich selber sucht (Regie: Géza von Cziffra), schrieb Stücke, spielte Theater und führte Regie im Kabarett.

          Neuss pflegte auch zu Kabarettkollegen wie Eckart Hachfeld, Ursula Herking, Thierry (der Texter Dieter Koch)[5], Dieter Hildebrandt und Wolfgang Gruner enge Kontakte. 1952 arbeitete er an zwei Programmen des Ensembles Die Stachelschweine mit.

          Neuss und Müller fielen 1955 in Nebenrollen des Musicals Kiss me Kate in der Regie von Leonard Steckel auf und inszenierten sogleich als Mitternachtsshow eine Parodie auf das Musical namens Schieß mich Tell. Von da an erhielten sie ein Filmangebot nach dem anderen. Auch als Schlagersänger wurden sie bekannt (unter anderem: Schlag nach bei Shakespeare oder: Ach, das könnte schön sein …).

          Ein tödlicher Unfall machte der Erfolgsgeschichte ein jähes Ende: Wolfgang Müller kam 1960 während der Dreharbeiten zu Das Spukschloss im Spessart bei einem Flugzeugabsturz in der Schweiz ums Leben. Wolfgang Neuss wurde mit den Worten: „Jetzt brauchen wir Sie auch nicht mehr!“ von den Dreharbeiten zu diesem Film entlassen.

          Soloprogramme [Bearbeiten]
          Wolfgang Neuss machte allein weiter und realisierte das mit Müller begonnene Filmprojekt Wir Kellerkinder nunmehr mit Wolfgang Gruner (Erstsendung in der ARD 26. Juni 1960, daraufhin Boykott durch deutsche Filmverleiher) und ging mit Soloprogrammen auf Tournee durch Westdeutschland.

          1962 sorgte er für einen bundesweiten Eklat, als er mittels einer Zeitungs-Werbeannonce am Vortag der Ausstrahlung des letzten Teils des sechsteiligen Durbridge-Krimis Das Halstuch dem Fernseh-Publikum den Mörder verriet. Die Zuschauer forderte er auf, statt dessen seinen eigenen Film Genosse Münchhausen im Kino zu sehen. Später behauptete er, den „Halstuchmörder“ allerdings auch nur erraten zu haben; nach einer anderen Darstellung soll es seine Mutter durch den Darsteller (Dieter Borsche) erfahren haben. Die Durbridge-Krimis waren in dieser Frühzeit des deutschen Fernsehens ein großer „Straßenfeger“, von weiten Teilen der Bevölkerung bei einer Einschaltquote von knapp 90 % verfolgt (vgl. Auswirkungen). Die Presse veröffentlichte Leserbriefe, es kam sogar zu Morddrohungen und die Bild-Zeitung bezeichnete Neuss wegen des Spoilers als „Vaterlandsverräter“.

          1962 heiratete Wolfgang Neuss die Schwedin Margareta Henriksson, die er seit 1958 kannte und von der er sich 1967 wieder scheiden ließ. Mit ihr hatte er eine Tochter Hariett (genannt Jette). Auch Gisela Groenewold, die ihn 1969 auf eine Südamerika-Reise begleitete und seine langjährige Lebensgefährtin war, trennte sich später von ihm, überließ ihm aber die Wohnung in Berlin-Charlottenburg.

          Mitte der 1960er Jahre galt Neuss als einer der besten deutschen Kabarettisten. Eckart Hachfeld, Hans Magnus Enzensberger (Pseudonym: Andreas Thalmayer), Thierry, Jens Gerlach und Horst Tomayer schrieben ihm Texte für seine Programme. Helene Weigel schenkte ihm ein lebenslängliches Abonnement für das Berliner Ensemble.

          Neuss machte den Ostberliner Wolf Biermann mit einem gemeinsamen Programm in Westdeutschland als Liedermacher bekannt und verhalf ihm zur ersten Schallplattenaufnahme. Nach einem Auftritt mit Biermann in Frankfurt am Main erhielt Neuss, der während des Kalten Krieges auch mit anderen ostdeutschen Kollegen wie Gisela May und Käthe Reichel auftrat, in der DDR Einreiseverbot.

          1965 sammelten Westberliner Zeitungen Geldspenden für den Vietnamkrieg, von dem Medikamente gekauft und Nachbildungen der Freiheitsglocke an die Witwen amerikanischer Soldaten verschenkt werden sollten. Dagegen protestierte der Kabarettist mit einem Extrablatt seiner Satirezeitschrift Neuss Deutschland und sammelte seinerseits insgesamt 11.000 DM Spenden, als die Zeitungsverleger mit einem Boykott seiner Kabarettprogramm-Ankündigungen reagierten.

          Schauspielkarriere [Bearbeiten]
          Neuss war ein Vieldreher. Er drehte mehrere Filme in einem Jahr, zehn Filme allein 1955. Insgesamt war er in 53 Filmen zwischen 1950 und 1967 und in einem 54. und letzten 1974 zu sehen. Auch im Fernsehen trat er oft auf, zuletzt 1983/84 in der Produktion: Is’ was, Kanzler? nach einem Drehbuch von Gerhard Schmidt und Jochen Busse.

          Auch die Theaterbühnen engagierten Wolfgang Neuss, beispielsweise als Thersites in Shakespeares Troilus und Cressida, als Moritatensänger in Brechts Dreigroschenoper und in der Rolle des Erich Mühsam in Tankred Dorsts Drama Toller, das unter dem Titel Rotmord von Peter Zadek 1969 für das Fernsehen verfilmt wurde.

          Als Moderator im Viet Nam Diskurs von Peter Weiss in einer Inszenierung an den Münchner Kammerspielen durfte Neuss seinen eigenen Text sprechen, wobei er zu Geldspenden für den Vietkong aufrief. Als die Intendanz diese von Regisseur Peter Stein gebilligte Aktion verbot, kündigte Neuss die Mitarbeit, und das Stück wurde abgesetzt.

          Neuss und die Studentenbewegung [Bearbeiten]
          1967 bestritt Neuss mit Franz-Josef Degenhardt, Hanns-Dieter Hüsch und Dieter Süverkrüp ein gemeinsames Programm mit politischen Texten und Liedern, das später als „Quartett ’67“ bezeichnet wurde. Es kam nur zu einem einzigen Auftritt, der vom Saarländischen Rundfunk mitgeschnitten wurde. Das Buch, das die Texte des Quartetts dokumentiert, erschien 1968; mit zahlreichen Auflagen bis 1980 hat es wesentlich zur Popularität der beteiligten Künstler beigetragen.

          Politisch machte er sich zunächst für die SPD stark, die ihn jedoch im Februar 1966 wegen seiner Zweitstimmenwerbung für die Deutsche Friedensunion ausschloss. Nachdem ihn die Partei ein halbes Jahr später ohne weitere Formalitäten wieder aufgenommen hatte, erklärte Neuss 1968 seinen Austritt, machte aber noch 1971 Wahlkampf für die SPD.

          Es war bekannt, dass Neuss zu dieser Zeit Drogen konsumiert hat (anfangs Tabletten, seit 1972 Haschisch).

          Für einen Teil der deutschen Öffentlichkeit wurde er nun zur Feindfigur. Auf dem Höhepunkt einer unter anderem von einer Bildzeitung getragenen Pressekampagne und nach einem gescheiterten Bombenattentat erklärte sich Neuss in einem Briefwechsel mit Willy Brandt[6] zum „politischen Flüchtling“ und fuhr nach Schweden. Sein Aufenthalt dort dauerte jedoch nur einige Wochen. Nach einer Tournee durch die Bundesrepublik mit dem Programm „Neuss Testament“ kehrte er nach West-Berlin zurück. Dort schloss er sich der APO an und nahm an Demonstrationen, Sit-ins und anderen politischen Aktionen teil. 1967 bis 1969 war er aktiv im Republikanischen Club in West-Berlin. Die Pauke, mit der er nun üblicherweise auftrat, sollte auf unbeachtete Missstände und ungeklärte Widersprüche hinweisen.

          Ausstieg [Bearbeiten]
          Ende der 1960er Jahre ging die Erfolgssträhne für Wolfgang Neuss allmählich zu Ende. Seine Auftritte waren zwar noch ausverkauft, wurden aber auch von früher wohlgesinnten Kritikern (und nicht mehr nur in der Springerpresse) verrissen.

          1969 verabschiedete er sich von der Bühne und vom Fernsehen und ging eine Zeit lang nach Chile. Abgesehen von seinem letzten Kinofilm, Chapeau Claque (1974), und einem Auftritt als „Mann mit der Pauke“ im laufenden Programm der Stachelschweine (November 1973) hörte man während der 1970er Jahre fast nichts mehr von Neuss. 1976 berichtete die Presse, dass er Sozialhilfe bezieht. 1979 machte er Schlagzeilen, als er in West-Berlin wegen Besitzes von 35,8 g Haschisch und mehrerer LSD-Trips zu acht Monaten Freiheitsstrafe auf Bewährung verurteilt wurde.

          Comeback [Bearbeiten]
          Eine erste Biografie schrieb Gaston Salvatore unter dem Titel: Der Mann mit der Pauke (1974, nach Tonbandprotokollen); sein Freund und literarischer Nachlassverwalter Volker Kühn dokumentierte Leben und Werk unter dem Titel: Das Wolfgang Neuss Buch (1981); später erheblich erweitert als Der totale Neuss (1997).

          Anfang der 1980er Jahre feierte Neuss ein Comeback auf der Bühne und im Fernsehen, schrieb regelmäßige Kolumnen (z. B. für die TAZ und den Stern) und veröffentlichte Schallplatten und Tonbandkassetten. Ein langes Interview mit Werner Pieper im Humus-Magazin (Ausgabe 3, 1979) war der Auftakt zu zahlreichen Porträts in Rundfunk und Fernsehen (u. a. von Volker Kühn, Tilman Jens und Rüdiger Daniel), die der medienerfahrene Wolfgang Neuss geschickt zu Kabarettauftritten umfunktionierte. Bevor er gefilmt oder fotografiert wurde, pflegte Neuss beispielsweise seinen Zahnersatz herauszunehmen, um die Betrachter zu schockieren.

          Eine Feier zu seinem 60. Geburtstag am 3. Dezember 1983, ausgerichtet von der Kulturfabrik auf dem Berliner Ufa-Gelände, gab Neuss Gelegenheit zu einer 30-minütigen Conference.

          Ein Höhepunkt dieser Jahre war die Talk-Show Leute am 5. Dezember 1983, die laut Stern zur „Show des Jahres“ wurde. Im Gespräch mit Wolfgang Menge verlas Neuss ein angeblich vom damaligen Regierenden Bürgermeister Richard von Weizsäcker an ihn gerichtetes Glückwunschtelegramm mit dem Satz: „Auf deutschem Boden darf nie mehr ein Joint ausgehen!“ Beim anschließenden Auftritt Weizsäckers, der sich damals für die Kandidatur zum Amt des Bundespräsidenten vorbereitete, empfahl Neuss unter tosendem Beifall dem als „Ritschie“ angesprochenen Politiker, seinen Bruder (Carl Friedrich von Weizsäcker) „mal öffentlich zu umarmen“ – „Das ist der eigentliche Intellektuelle in der Familie“ –, und bezeichnete sich als aussichtsreicheren Präsidentschaftskandidaten, allerdings unter einer Bedingung: „wenn die Kinder wählen dürften … die Kinder wählen immer einen aus der Sesamstraße!“[7]

          Für sein Kabarett-Programm „Neuss vom Tage“ im WDR erhielt er den deutschen Kleinkunstpreis 1983; die Laudatio hielt sein Freund Hanns-Dieter Hüsch.

          Bei einer Hausdurchsuchung Ende März 1984 fand die Polizei 79 Gramm Haschisch und 814 LSD-Trips; trotz Haftbefehls blieb Neuss auf freiem Fuß. Im Juli wurde er vom Schöffengericht Moabit zu einem Jahr Gefängnis mit Bewährung verurteilt. Eine von der Staatsanwaltschaft angestrengte Berufung scheiterte am 22. November desselben Jahres vor dem Landgericht Berlin.[8] 1989 teilte das Amtsgericht Berlin mit, man habe Neuss die Freiheitsstrafe erlassen: „Der Verurteilte hat sich, soweit ersichtlich, bewährt.“[9]

          Als „zahnloser Späthippie“ (auch als „Indianerfrau“ bezeichnet), der in den letzten Lebensjahren an Krebs litt, wurde er zur lebenden Legende in West-Berlin. Er empfing zahlreiche Besucher in seiner Wohnung, die ihm der Bruder seiner einstigen Geliebten, der Rechtsanwalt Kurt Groenewold, mietfrei überlassen hatte, und unterhielt sie mit kabarettistischen Monologen.[10] Mit einem Auftritt an seinem 65. Geburtstag, 3. Dezember 1988, verabschiedete er sich endgültig von seinem Publikum.

          Am 5. Mai 1989 – nur ein halbes Jahr vor dem Fall der Berliner Mauer – starb Wolfgang Neuss, nachdem noch bis wenige Tage vor seinem Tod ein Dokumentarfilm über ihn gedreht worden war. Auf seinen Wunsch hin wurde er am 19. Mai neben seinem Partner Wolfgang Müller auf dem Waldfriedhof Zehlendorf, Feld UII Grab 112, beerdigt.

          Das Wolfgang-Neuss-Archiv befindet sich in Berlin im Archiv der Akademie der Künste.

          Widmungen an Wolfgang Neuss [Bearbeiten]
          Franz Josef Degenhardt schrieb dem Verstorbenen mit Der Trommler[11] ein Requiem; auf Neuss bezieht sich auch das Lied: Immer noch grob sinnlich.[12] Als Neuss 1967 nach Südamerika reiste, schrieb Degenhardt das Lied Adieu Kumpanen[13] und widmete es Wolfgang Neuss.

          Ein weiterer von Neuss’ Partnern beim „Quartett ’67“, Hanns-Dieter Hüsch, schrieb auf Wolfgang Neuss die Gedichte Nachricht I und II.

        • Max Born (11 December 1882 – 5 January 1970) was a German born physicist and mathematician who was instrumental in the development of quantum mechanics. He also made contributions to solid-state physics and optics and supervised the work of a number of notable physicists in the 1920s and 30s. Born won the 1954 Nobel Prize in Physics (shared with Walther Bothe).

          [edit] Early life and education
          Max was born on December 11, 1882 in Breslau (now Wrocław, Poland), which at Born’s birth was in the Prussian Province of Silesia in the German Empire. He was one of two children born to Gustav Born, (b. 22 April 1850, Kempen, d. 6 July 1900, Breslau), an anatomist and embryologist, and Margarethe (‘Gretchen’) Kauffmann (b. 22 January 1856, Tannhausen, d. 29 August 1886, Breslau), from a Silesian family of industrialists.

          Gustav and Gretchen married on 7 May 1881. She died when Max was just four years old, on 29 August 1886.

          Max had a sister Käthe (b. 5 March 1884), and a half-brother Wolfgang (b. 21 October 1892) from his father’s second marriage (m. 13 September 1891) with Bertha Lipstein.

          Initially educated at the König-Wilhelm-Gymnasium, Born went on to study at the University of Breslau followed by Heidelberg University and the University of Zurich. During study for his Ph.D.[1] and Habilitation [2] at the University of Göttingen, he came into contact with many prominent scientists and mathematicians including Klein, Hilbert, Minkowski, Runge, Schwarzschild, and Voigt. In 1908-1909 he studied at Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge.

          When Born arrived in Göttingen in 1904, Klein, Hilbert, and Minkowski[3] were the high priests of mathematics and were known as the “mandarins.” Very quickly after his arrival, Born formed close ties to the latter two men. From the first class he took with Hilbert, Hilbert identified Born as having exceptional abilities and selected him as the lecture scribe, whose function was to write up the class notes[4] for the students’ mathematics reading room at the University of Göttingen. Being class scribe put Born into regular, invaluable contact with Hilbert, during which time Hilbert’s intellectual largesse benefited Born’s fertile mind. Hilbert became Born’s mentor and Hilbert eventually selected him to be the first to hold the unpaid, semi-official position of Hilbert’s assistant. Born’s introduction to Minkowski came through Born’s stepmother, Bertha, as she knew Minkowski from dancing classes in Königsberg. The introduction netted Born invitations to the Minkowski household for Sunday dinners. In addition, while performing his duties as scribe and assistant, Born often saw Minkowski at Hilbert’s house. Born’s outstanding work on elasticity – a subject near and dear to Klein – became the core of his magna cum laude Ph.D. thesis, in spite of some of Born’s irrationalities in dealing with Klein.[5]

          Born married Hedwig, née Ehrenberg, who was, like Born, of Jewish descent (although a practising Christian), on 2 August 1913, and converted to the Lutheran faith soon thereafter; the marriage produced three children including G. V. R. Born. His daughter Irene was the mother of British-born Australian singer and actress Olivia Newton-John.Via marriage, he is the great uncle of British alternative comedian Ben Elton.

          • Gustav Born

          • Olivia Newton-John was born in Cambridge, England, to a Welsh father, Brinley (“Bryn”) Newton-John, and a Jewish-German mother, Irene Born, the eldest child of the Nobel prize-winning atomic physicist Max Born.[3] Newton-John is the youngest of three children, following brother Hugh, a doctor, and sister Rona, an actress once married to Grease co-star Jeff Conaway. Newton-John’s father was an MI.5 officer on the Enigma project at Bletchley Park, and he was also the officer who took Rudolf Hess into custody during World War II.[4] Newton-John’s family emigrated to Melbourne, Australia, in 1954, where her father worked as a professor of German and Master of Ormond College at the University of Melbourne.[5]

            At 14, Newton-John formed a short-lived all-girl band, Sol Four, with three classmates often performing in a coffee shop owned by her brother-in-law.[6] She became a regular on local Australian radio and television shows including HSV-7’s The Happy Show, where she performed as “Lovely Livvy.” She also appeared on the Go Show where she met future duet partner, Pat Carroll, and future music producer John Farrar. She entered and won a talent contest on the television program Sing, Sing, Sing, hosted by 1960s Australian icon Johnny O’Keefe, performing the songs “Anyone Who Had A Heart” and “Everything’s Coming Up Roses.” Newton-John was initially reluctant to use the prize she had won, a trip to England, but travelled there nearly a year later after her mother encouraged her to broaden her horizons.[1]

            Newton-John recorded her first single, Till You Say You’ll Be Mine b/w Forever, in England for Decca Records in 1966.[1] Newton-John was homesick in England for her then-boyfriend, Ian Turpie, with whom she had co-starred in the Australian telefilm Funny Things Happen Down Under, but her mother always cancelled trips back to Australia that Newton-John would repeatedly book

  26. From wiki link above on John Conaway:
    After hitting bottom in the mid ’80s, Conaway came to grips with the fact that he had a substance abuse problem. He underwent treatment in the late ’80s and often spoke candidly about his problem.[citation needed]

    By the mid-2000s however, problems with drugs had resurfaced. Conaway appeared in VH1’s Celebrity Fit Club, but was forced to leave due to his relapse and entered rehab. In early 2008 Conaway appeared with other celebrities in the VH1 reality series Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew. The show revealed that Conaway is addicted to cocaine, alcohol, and painkillers, and in a co-dependent relationship with his girlfriend Vikki,[4] also a user of prescription opiates. Conaway had suffered a back injury earlier in his career, which had been exacerbated more recently as a result of lifting boxes in his home.

    Conaway’s appearance on the show’s first and second seasons has drawn much attention due to his severely crippled state, his constant threats of leaving the facility and his frequent inability to speak clearly. Upon arrival at the Pasadena Recovery Center (which was filmed as part of Celebrity Rehab’s first episode) a wheelchair-bound Conaway arrived drunk, mumbling to Dr. Drew that the night previous he had binged on cocaine and Jack Daniel’s whiskey.

    During the second episode of Celebrity Rehab’s first season, Conaway, fed up with his dorsalgia, withdrawal symptoms and the humiliation of having to be assisted while using the toilet, told Dr. Pinsky that he was thinking of killing himself. After Pinsky asked him to elaborate upon how he would carry out a suicidal act, Conaway glared at the mirror in his room and said “I see myself breaking that mirror and slicing my **** throat with it.” During group sessions, Conaway revealed “torture” from his childhood, as older boys in his neighborhood would put him into dangerous situations, tying him up and threatening him. When he was 7 years old, he was a victim of pedophiles and child pornographers.[5] Conaway stated that he had been an addict since he was a teenager.[6]

    With John Travolta’s support, Conaway took courses and auditing from the Church of Scientology to cope with his drug problem and depression,[7] although he did not intend to become a Scientologist
