Conspiracy, alternative news, history, intelligence agencies


When we are weary we must remember to relax and enjoy some of the good things in life like love and romance or stimulating venues with those special persons. Many Cafes play music and serve aperitifs. We shall devote this channel to those pursuits so that you can find diversions to the news of the world and celebrate the arts and scenes of far off places.

A taste of the temporal while pondering the eternal

On the town or...

On the terrace

Life is a spin.

    You can't say we can't do a little C & W at Cafe Paradiso. I get the feeling this was the training film the Ruskies used as they waited for the go ahead at the border. Always remember the motto of the SAS. WHO DARES WINS! You just got to dare.

    Ukraine crisis: Russia aid convoy 'invades Ukraine'

    22 August 2014 Last updated at 12:32 ET

    Russia's aid convoy heads through Ukraine towards Luhansk

    The BBC's David Stern: "Red cross officials say Moscow decided to move forward without them"

    Ukraine's President Petro Poroshenko has accused Russia of a "flagrant violation of international law" after Russian humanitarian aid lorries entered Ukraine without permission.

    More than 100 Russian lorries entered on Friday without an Red Cross escort and most without customs clearance.

    Rebel fighters could be seen at the border as the lorries passed

    But Russia's President Vladimir Putin said further delays to the delivery of aid "were unacceptable".

    Reports say the first trucks have reached the rebel-held city of Luhansk.

    Reporters at the scene saw rebel fighters in front of the convoy as it crossed the border near the town of Kamensk-Shakhtinsky.

    Ukraine's security chief Valentyn Nalyvaychenko said it was a "direct invasion" but no force would be used against the convoy as it wished to avoid "provocations".

    The Ukrainian army continued operations in neighbouring Donetsk region on Friday

    The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) said it was not part of the convoy "in any way".

    Russia's foreign ministry has warned Ukraine not to take any action against the convoy, without specifying the consequences.

    In a statement, President Poroshenko said "a column of more than 100 vehicles entered Ukrainian territory without a customs inspection, without border control or International Red Cross escort, which is a flagrant violation of international law".

    Ukraine fears that the aid convoy of at least 260 lorries, which arrived at the border more than a week ago, is part of a broader Russian intervention in eastern Ukraine.

    Russia denies accusations that it arms and trains the rebels in Luhansk and the neighbouring region of Donetsk, where four months of fighting have left more than 2,000 people dead and caused more than 330,000 people to flee their homes...

    One of the greatest psyops of the last few centuries was to convince us with sham science that carbon made the planet heat up. The scientists got got fixing the data. Al Gore's film was a fraud. But if we dutifully paid this tax all would be well despite China burning dirty old coal. People caught on. Paying the damned tax was surely a wake up call. You can now resume regular programming NOT! Never trust them. They're consummate liars. As Goebbels opined I can turn a circle into a square.

    Australia Becomes First Developed Nation to Repeal Carbon Tax

    Tony Abbott Pledged to Get Rid of the Tax Last Year


    Updated July 17, 2014 5:51 a.m. ET

    CANBERRA, Australia—After almost a decade of heated political debate, Australia has become the world's first developed nation to repeal carbon laws that put a price on greenhouse-gas emissions.

    In a vote that could highlight the difficulty in implementing additional measures to reduce carbon emissions ahead of global climate talks next year in Paris, Australia's Senate on Thursday voted 39-32 to repeal a politically divisive carbon emissions price that contributed to the fall from power of three Australian leaders since it was first suggested in 2007.

    Australia, the world's 12th largest economy, is one of the world's largest per capita greenhouse gas emitters due to its reliance on coal-burning power stations to power homes and industry. In 2011, daily emissions per head amounted to 49.3 kilograms (108 pounds), almost four times higher than the global average of 12.8 kilograms, and slightly ahead of the U.S. figure of 48.2 kilograms.

    The former Labor government, while introducing a price on carbon, said the move would help slash emissions by 160 million metric tons by 2020. It offered voters billions of dollars in compensation through tax breaks and welfare payments for increased costs stemming from one of the most dramatic reforms ever attempted in the energy-reliant economy.

    But after the global financial crisis took hold in 2008, followed by the end of a decadelong mining boom in 2012 that slowed growth and employment in the A$1.5 trillion (US$1.4 trillion) economy, Australian voters turned against climate laws—recognized by the International Energy Agency as model legislation for developed countries—blaming them for rising energy bills and living costs.

    The World Bank in May produced a State and Trends of Carbon Pricing report counting carbon pricing programs in 40 nations and 20 regions worth a collective US$30 billion, while also singling out repeal plans in Australia as one of the biggest international threats to the rollout of similar programs elsewhere, given its example.

    Prime Minister Tony Abbott, who made a pre-election "pledge in blood" to voters and business to prioritize growth above climate shift, delivered on his promise after independent senators with deciding votes in the upper house sided with his conservatives, following a power shift this month that ended years of domination by the pro-environment Greens party.

    "Today the tax that you voted to get rid of is finally gone, a useless destructive tax which damaged jobs, which hurt families' cost of living and which didn't actually help the environment is finally gone," a jubilant Mr. Abbott told voters in a news conference after the Senate's decision.

    He said the carbon price was acting as a A$9 billion a year handbrake on the economy, which was adjusting to the end of a record mining investment boom that helped shield Australia through much of the recent global economic downturn.

    Without matching emissions policies in other industrialized countries, Mr. Abbott had said earlier the tax was an unfair shackle on local companies and individuals, unequaled except in Europe, where an emissions market has operated since 2005...

    Argentina's Rational Default

    August 7, 2014

    This default, Argentina's eighth, is perhaps the strangest in history. The government has plenty of cash on hand and has already deposited its most recent interest payment of five hundred and thirty-nine million dollars with its trustee, the Bank of New York Mellon. But the bank cannot forward Argentina's money to its creditors, because Thomas Griesa, a federal judge in New York, has issued an order prohibiting the transfer.

    It's their EIGHTH default, but it matters not because they really had the money. The hidden hand is playing cames holding up the payment. Notice the amount of the interest. Imagine the amount of the debt. We are all slaves to the banksters. However, Argentina has something every agent looking for a safe haven should desire THE TANGO! Let the bastards play their games. We have moonlit nights and music and romance. The banksters have delusions of glory. The Cafe links to Buenos Aires here and shares the passion of travel to that Latin land where the dance and the ambiance are an inspiration. Never fear them. Enjoy yourself. Let them fear us in case the music ever stops.

    Don't ever let the world and the nefarious New World Order get you down. There is still life, love and laughter. I have come across this musical group. If Conspiracy Cafe had street side venue, we would play this music and talk about the latest plots and conspiracies. The like minded could dance the tango and show the world that not only is knowledge power, but is life at the apex. We know, and we change destines. Enjoy.
