Remember the Maine:
Excerpts from –

On the evening of February 15, 1898 a sudden and shocking explosion tore a hole in the hull of the American battleship Maine, which had been on patrol in Havana harbor. The immediate assumption was that the sinking of the Maine and the concomitant deaths of 260 sailors was the result of Spanish treachery. Although no conclusive results have ever been proven even to this day, the most likely cause of the explosion is that a small kitchen fire ignited the gun powder in the next compartment resulting in the loss of the battleship.

The American press, however, had no doubts about who was responsible for sinking the Maine. It was the cowardly Spanish, they cried. William Randolph Hearst’s New York Journal even published pictures. They showed how Spanish saboteurs had fastened an underwater mine to the Maine and had detonated it from shore.

A minor revolt in Cuba against the Spanish colonial government provided a colorful topic. For months now the papers had been painting in lurid detail the horrors of Cuban life under oppressive Spanish rule. The Spanish had confined many Cubans to concentration camps. The press called them “death camps.” Wild stories with screaming headlines — Spanish Cannibalism, Inhuman Torture, Amazon Warriors Fight For Rebels — flooded the newsstands. Newspapers sent hundreds of reporters, artists, and photographers south to recount Spanish atrocities. The correspondents, including such notables as author Stephen Crane and artist Frederick Remington, found little to report on when they arrived.

    “There is no war,” Remington wrote to his boss. “Request to be recalled.”

Remington’s boss, William Randolph Hearst, sent a cable in reply: “Please remain. You furnish the pictures, I’ll furnish the war.” Hearst was true to his word. For weeks after the Maine disaster, the Journal devoted more than eight pages a day to the story. Not to be outdone, other papers followed Hearst’s lead. Hundreds of editorials demanded that the Maine and American honor be avenged. Many Americans agreed. Soon a rallying cry could be heard everywhere — in the papers, on the streets, and in the halls of Congress: “Remember the Maine! To hell with Spain.”

Remember The Gulf of Tonkin:
Excerpts from –

“American Planes Hit North Vietnam After Second Attack on Our Destroyers; Move Taken to Halt New Aggression”, announced a Washington Post headline on Aug. 5, 1964.

That same day, the front page of the New York Times reported: “President Johnson has ordered retaliatory action against gunboats and ‘certain supporting facilities in North Vietnam’ after renewed attacks against American destroyers in the Gulf of Tonkin.”

But there was no “second attack” by North Vietnam — no “renewed attacks against American destroyers.” By reporting official claims as absolute truths, American journalism opened the floodgates for the bloody Vietnam War.

A pattern took hold: continuous government lies passed on by pliant mass media…leading to over 50,000 American deaths and millions of Vietnamese casualties.

The official story was that North Vietnamese torpedo boats launched an “unprovoked attack” against a U.S. destroyer on “routine patrol” in the Tonkin Gulf on Aug. 2 — and that North Vietnamese PT boats followed up with a “deliberate attack” on a pair of U.S. ships two days later.

The truth was very different.

Rather than being on a routine patrol Aug. 2, the U.S. destroyer Maddox was actually engaged in aggressive intelligence-gathering maneuvers — in sync with coordinated attacks on North Vietnam by the South Vietnamese navy and the Laotian air force.

“The day before, two attacks on North Vietnam…had taken place,” writes scholar Daniel C. Hallin. Those assaults were “part of a campaign of increasing military pressure on the North that the United States had been pursuing since early 1964.”

On the night of Aug. 4, the Pentagon proclaimed that a second attack by North Vietnamese PT boats had occurred earlier that day in the Tonkin Gulf — a report cited by President Johnson as he went on national TV that evening to announce a momentous escalation in the war: air strikes against North Vietnam.

But Johnson ordered U.S. bombers to “retaliate” for a North Vietnamese torpedo attack that never happened.

Prior to the U.S. air strikes, top officials in Washington had reason to doubt that any Aug. 4 attack by North Vietnam had occurred. Cables from the U.S. task force commander in the Tonkin Gulf, Captain John J. Herrick, referred to “freak weather effects,” “almost total darkness” and an “over eager sonar man” who “was hearing ship’s own propeller beat.”

One of the Navy pilots flying overhead that night was squadron commander James Stockdale, who gained fame later as a POW and then Ross Perot’s vice presidential candidate. “I had the best seat in the house to watch that event,” recalled Stockdale a few years ago, “and our destroyers were just shooting at phantom targets — there were no PT boats there…. There was nothing there but black water and American fire power.”

In 1965, Lyndon Johnson commented: “For all I know, our Navy was shooting at whales out there.”

But Johnson’s deceitful speech of Aug. 4, 1964, won accolades from editorial writers. The president, proclaimed the New York Times, “went to the American people last night with the somber facts.” The Los Angeles Times urged Americans to “face the fact that the Communists, by their attack on American vessels in international waters, have themselves escalated the hostilities.”

Daniel Hallin’s classic book The “Uncensored War” observes that journalists had “a great deal of information available which contradicted the official account [of Tonkin Gulf events]; it simply wasn’t used. The day before the first incident, Hanoi had protested the attacks on its territory by Laotian aircraft and South Vietnamese gunboats.”

What’s more, “It was generally known…that `covert’ operations against North Vietnam, carried out by South Vietnamese forces with U.S. support and direction, had been going on for some time.”

In the absence of independent journalism, the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution — the closest thing there ever was to a declaration of war against North Vietnam — sailed through Congress on Aug. 7. (Two courageous senators, Wayne Morse of Oregon and Ernest Gruening of Alaska, provided the only “no” votes.) The resolution authorized the president “to take all necessary measures to repel any armed attack against the forces of the United States and to prevent further aggression.”

The rest is tragic history.

Nearly three decades later, during the Gulf War, columnist Sydney Schanberg warned journalists not to forget “our unquestioning chorus of agreeability when Lyndon Johnson bamboozled us with his fabrication of the Gulf of Tonkin incident.”

Schanberg blamed not only the press but also “the apparent amnesia of the wider American public.”

And he added: “We Americans are the ultimate innocents. We are forever desperate to believe that this time the government is telling us the truth.”

Remember the USS Liberty:
Excerpts from –

NEW YORK – On the fourth day of the 1967 Arab Israeli War, the intelligence ship ‘USS Liberty’ was steaming slowly in international waters, 14 miles off the Sinai Peninsula. Israeli armored forces were racing deep into Sinai in hot pursuit of the retreating Egyptian army.

‘Liberty,’ a World War II freighter, had been converted into an intelligence vessel by the top-secret US National Security Agency, and packed with the latest signals and electronic interception equipment. The ship bristled with antennas and electronic ‘ears’ including TRSSCOMM, a system that delivered real-time intercepts to Washington by bouncing a stream of microwaves off the moon.

‘Liberty’ had been rushed to Sinai to monitor communications of the belligerents in the Third Arab Israeli War: Israel and her foes, Egypt, Syria, and Jordan.

At 0800 hrs, 8 June, 1967, eight Israeli recon flights flew over ‘Liberty,’ which was flying a large American flag. At 1400 hrs, waves of low-flying Israeli Mystere and Mirage-III fighter-bombers repeatedly attacked the American vessel with rockets, napalm, and cannon. The air attacks lasted 20 minutes, concentrating on the ship’s electronic antennas and dishes. The ‘Liberty’ was left afire, listing sharply. Eight of her crew lay dead, a hundred seriously wounded, including the captain, Commander William McGonagle.

At 1424 hrs, three Israeli torpedo boats attacked, raking the burning ‘Liberty’ with 20mm and 40mm shells. At 1431hrs an Israeli torpedo hit the ‘Liberty’ midship, precisely where the signals intelligence systems were located. Twenty-five more Americans died.

Israeli gunboats circled the wounded ‘Liberty,’ firing at crewmen trying to fight the fires. At 1515, the crew were ordered to abandon ship. The Israeli warships closed and poured machine gun fire into the crowded life rafts, sinking two. As American sailors were being massacred in cold blood, a rescue mission by US Sixth Fleet carrier aircraft was mysteriously aborted on orders from the White House.

An hour after the attack, Israeli warships and planes returned. Commander McGonagle gave the order. ‘prepare to repel borders.’ But the Israelis, probably fearful of intervention by the US Sixth Fleet, departed. ‘Liberty’ was left shattered but still defiant, her flag flying.

The Israeli attacks killed 34 US seamen and wounded 171 out of a crew of 297, the worst loss of American naval personnel from hostile action since World War II.

Less than an hour after the attack, Israel told Washington its forces had committed a ‘tragic error.’ Later, Israel claimed it had mistaken ‘Liberty’ for an ancient Egyptian horse transport. US Secretary of State, Dean Rusk, and Joint Chiefs of Staff head, Admiral Thomas Moorer, insisted the Israeli attack was deliberate and designed to sink ‘Liberty.’ So did three CIA reports; one asserted Israel’s Defense Minister, Gen. Moshe Dayan, had personally ordered the attack.

Why did Israel try to sink a naval vessel of its benefactor and ally? Most likely because ‘Liberty’s’ intercepts flatly contradicted Israel’s claim, made at the war’s beginning on 5 June, that Egypt had attacked Israel, and that Israel’s massive air assault on three Arab nations was in retaliation. In fact, Israel began the war by a devastating, Pearl-Harbor style surprise attack that caught the Arabs in bed and destroyed their entire air forces.

Israel was also preparing to attack Syria to seize its strategic Golan Heights. Washington warned Israel not to invade Syria, which had remained inactive while Israel fought Egypt. Bamford says Israel’s offensive against Syria was abruptly postponed when ‘Liberty’ appeared off Sinai, then launched once it was knocked out of action. Israel’s claim that Syria had attacked it could have been disproved by ‘Liberty.’

Most significant, ‘Liberty’s’ intercepts may have shown that Israel seized upon sharply rising Arab-Israeli tensions in May-June 1967 to launch a long-planned war to invade and annex the West Bank, Jerusalem, Golan and Sinai.

Far more shocking was Washington’s response. Writes Bamford: ‘Despite the overwhelming evidence that Israel attacked the ship and killed American servicemen deliberately, the Johnson Administration and Congress covered up the entire incident.’ Why?

Domestic politics. Johnson, a man never noted for high moral values, preferred to cover up the attack rather than anger a key constituency and major financial backer of the Democratic Party. Congress was even less eager to touch this ‘third rail’ issue.

A member of President Johnson’s staff believed there was a more complex reason for the cover-up: Johnson offered Jewish liberals unconditional backing of Israel, and a cover-up of the ‘Liberty’ attack, in exchange for the liberal toning down their strident criticism of his policies in the then raging Vietnam War.


The first casualty of war is the truth.  By way of deception we shall do war.  All warfare is based on deception.

When a government can control what information is available to its population, it can control perception and mold public opinion to suit an agenda the population might not otherwise support.  To them, its all just a big chess game and sacrificing pawns is expected.

We were led into war with Afghanistan and Iraq by deception.  Yellow cake, weapons of mass destruction, material support for the perpetrators of 9/11.  All proven later to be lies or at the very least, “faulty intelligence”, by a government hell bent on war and echoed by a complicit media.

Now the same stories are being told about Iran.  Weapons of mass destruction.  Iran could have nukes any day.  Iran’s leadership is insane.  The Iranian people will welcome us with open arms and thank us for bringing them freedom!

BULLSHIT!!!  Fool me once, shame on you … fool me twice shame on me … and it seems the American people have been fooled over and over and over again by the same deceptive government and its lap dogs in the media!

Now we move a pawn into position.  

The USS Enterprise … Star Trek !!!  Captain Kirk !!!  Spock !!! 

uuuuh, no, the OTHER ENTERPRISE !!!  Our oldest nuclear powered air craft carrier commissioned in 1961.  A cold war veteran that is scheduled to be decommissioned in 2013.  At 50 years old, the ship is nearly twice the age of most seamen serving on it.  It is said that the decommissioning will be very costly as no known method is currently available for rendering the ships eight (8) nuclear reactors safe.

As old as the USS Enterprise might be, it remains a formitable weapon of war.  5,000 sailors and naval airmen man the ship which carries as many as 90 aircraft.  The Iranians have nothing close to its capability.

But should war with Iran break out and it can be shown that the USA was the aggressor, Russia and China have warned that they would consider this an assault on their vital interests.  As crazy as some in our government might be, they know they are not presently in a position to take on both Russia and China, and be assured of a win.

so what to do, what to do … hmmm …

What if Iran sank the Enterprise ???   Yeah, yeah … that would do it !!!   think of all them Trekkies out there on the street screaming for war against those who killed Captian Kirk and Spock !!!  with all that public opinion in favor of doing it, the US would have to kick Iran’s ass !!!

And if the US cant get Iran to do it, we know we can talk Israel into doing it … remember the Liberty ???  and the Israli’s are great at pulling off such things and making it look like it was someone else !!!  PROBLEM SOLVED !!!

Can you hear the war drums beating ???

Are you about pissed off yet ???

Segment #3: Feature Presentation – Project Update – Wesley from New York

Presenter:  SmartScarecrow and Wesley
Estimated time:  30 minutes

Tonight we get an update on the KAPANADZE type device Wesley in New York has been working on.  Wesley was on the show in November of 2011 to discuss his work and after that a number of people including ZeroFossilFuel decided to attempt their own replications.  So tonight we will talk with Wesley and see what progress he has made.

See Wesley’s videos on YouTube at

Here is the tough one.
Results are expected

Results might  wait to be delivered in easy to absorb form
There is number of factors related.
-concerns about recent happenings… messages received, say warnings,approaches absolutely unexpected, and unwanted,Do not want to go to details.When it increases than I will go loud very loud and if that not would be me any longer than someone will..I’m not afraid.Data is being collected, saved and distributed on daily basis. 

lets deliver it  different way.

Preliminary ( at maximum brightens)

expanation of used terminology:
apparatus-  caduceus based device with all components
resistive load – (light bulb)
fundamental – frequency of primary oscillation
sinus – shape of signal
bandwidth of active sweep – is active region of frequency sweep at which  results of interaction between power delivered and power dissipated have been visible as significant change.
effective energy dissipated – is energy consumed
impedance mismatch- is difference between impedance of input and impedance of output
that causes  energy reflected back to port 1
port 1 – point#11 at schematic diagram.
port#2 – light bulb connection
network- is the set of devices under analysis representing   properties of analysis.
our network is set that starts from port 1 and ends at port 2.
reversed attenuator – is  an apparatus that is relative to amplifier but of highly non linear nature

harmonic frequency-
A harmonic frequency is a multiple of a fundamental frequency.
 A fundamental frequency of 500Hz has a first harmonic frequency of 1000Hz, double the fundamental frequency. Its second harmonic is 1500Hz, the third harmonic is 2000Hz and so on. A musical instrument produces both fundamental and harmonic frequencies, which allows the human ear to discern the differences between instruments even if they are playing the same note.
SWR-Standing Wave Ratio
can we have SWR=1
yes we can be close to that.
can we have and S12=S21?
read this

Properties of lossless networks.For a network to be lossless, all of the power (or energy) that is incident at any one port has to be accounted for by summing the power output at the other ports with the power reflected at the incident port. None of the power is converted to heat or radiated within a lossless network. Note that an active device is not in the same category as a lossless part, since power is added to the network through its bias connections.
Within the S-parameter matrix of a lossless network, the sum of the squares of the magnitudes of any row must total unity (unity is a fancy way of saying “one”). If any of the rows’ sum-of-the-squares is less than one, there is a lossy element within the network, or something is radiating.
Why are we looking at sum of the squares instead of sum of the elements themselves? Because the S matrix is express in terms of voltage, and as we said, we are accounting for power. Power is proportional to voltage squared[/i], get it?
Guess what? You can never make a lossless network. But you can come extremely close

In this point one might raise doubt that I have omitted amplification factor and a comparison  S21 to S12 is not reflecting and/or correlating with  factional experiment.
That might be good point but as we do not deal with traditional network that is assigned to particular group of network devices such as
we may assume that we could compare the apparatus to  “reversed attenuator” of non linear nature.
Amplification factor of such apparatus should be taken to consideration strictly based on its performance at given  frequency within given spectrum. 

One might also find VNA analysis to be close to impossible with the presence of spark gaps.
Yes it is not easy ..but VNA analogy could be applied at any time.

HV delivered to  #11 of diagram.12.9 kV

generator power supply,set at max 30W

SWR  mismatch
Reversed power  28W (losses)

2W effective energy dissipated by the apparatus including resistive load (light bulb)  light bulbs in series
28W loss because of impedance mismatch.

Frequency bandwidth occupied  100 to 124 KHz
-at present time no ability to check how device react  below 100KHz due to limitation of HV driving circuitry.
– Suspected that investigation was provided  at  third harmonic frequency up, not primary resonance frequency


the fundamental  should be 28kHz

signal delivered to Abramienko fork sinus
the same situation as in Lithuania Experiment  at secondary of flyback we have had sinus  of even amplitude at 16.8KHz

Energy dissipation

 Only fundamental frequency current can provide real power. Current delivered at harmonic frequencies doesn’t deliver any real power to the load. When current of a single frequency is present in a system, you can use the measured values in Ohm’s Law and power calculations
However, when currents of more than one frequency are present, direct addition of the current values leads to a summed value that doesn’t correctly represent the total effect of the multiple currents. Instead, you need to add the currents in a manner known as the “root mean square” summation.

due to  spark gap implementation we assume that we dealing with nonlinear load.
nonlinear load is our apparatus including 2x100W  / 110V

in Lithuania experiment:
we have used generator that supplied the impulse  to the transformer at secondary of transformer we have had even sinus at frequency of 16.6KHz

at recent experiment lets call it NY Experiment
we have used frequency of 122kHz in within  bandwidth of active sweep   24KHz

bandwidth of active sweep – is active region of frequency sweep at which  results of interaction between power delivered and power dissipated have been visible as significant change.

Means of tuning: Frequency change to max of lightness that may stay about tuning to minimum loss  of  ports 2-1 to 1-2 in Vector Network Analysis

At Smith chart applied to ADVANTEST R3754B VNA
that would be represented as correlation between input and output losses due to transition of the signal( energy)

example:SWR=1 to 1 =0 energy losses

when mismatch is present than returned signal  reversed power (equal to BEMF)
represent significant losses in  the network.
in this particular situation it is loss of 28W
if for instance  28W was at SWR 1 to 1 and P of S21= P of S12 than 28W would become dissipated energy + 2 W of real energy utilized by apparatus

If we  make assignment of ports: 1 and 2

S12 input versus output
S21 Output versus input
Purely Resistive load is our light bulb at the output
Load is than changing resistance and affecting overall impedance match of  the network,  upon  temperature to change.That creates need of frequency adjustment at
generator power supply .
Practically on video you can see me waiting a little while  tuning light bulb to maximum brightness
 Delta T is causing delay  of the adjustment as it takes time for resistive component of light bulb to change its resistance  that means impedance of network between P1 and P2 has to be readjusted by frequency change of generator power supply.

As L and C of light bulb is minimal  we may state that impedance of load =resistance at the load point.
than the Inductive Reactance and Capacitive Reactance = 0 or close to zero, at any time.

At that point we are dealing with impedance match between
– energy supply generating device
– light bulb
only when considering network analysis

the only change might be taken to consideration is  frequency tuning at
 generator power supply  to compensate resistance=impedance  change, affecting  overall resonance frequency of the load
That is if we look  from  generator power supply output delivering signal to #11  and  rest of apparatus.

When calculating real power utilized by device we are dealing with
–   generator power supply
–  receiving energy apparatus including light bulbs

Instead of stating data I give you little calculation example:
 current is easy to find out.
make your math:
and no mf..r will be able to  take advantage of me.

Example: A transformer is required to supply a nonlinear load comprised of 200A of fundamental (60 Hz), 30A of 3rd harmonic, 48A of 5th harmonic and 79A of 7th harmonic. Find the required k factor rating of the transformer:
Total rms current, I = [square root of [([I.sub.1]).sup.2] + [([I.sub.3]).sup.2] + [([I.sub.5]).sup.2] + [([I.sub.7]).sup.2]]
Total rms current, I = [square root of [(200).sup.2] + [(30).sup.2] + [(48).sup.2] + [(79).sup.2]] = 222.4A
[I.sub.1] = 200 / 222.4 = 0.899
[I.sub.3] = 30 / 222.4 = 0.135
[I.sub.5] = 48 / 222.4 = 0.216
[I.sub.7] = 79 / 222.4 = 0.355
k = [(0.899).sup.2][(1).sup.2] + [(0.135).sup.2] [(3).sup.2] + [(0.216).sup.2]([5).sup.2] + [(0.355).sup.2][(7).sup.2] = 8.31
To address the harmonic loading in this example, you should specify a transformer capable of supplying a minimum of 222.4A with a k rating of 9. Of course, it would be best to consider possible load growth and adjust the minimum capacity accordingly.

Take  (in watts)
1.effective energy dissipated
2.  resistive load energy consumption (manufacturer set parameters  100Wx2 at 110V   light bulbs in series
3.  calculated ratio is to be used  to find how much power will be present at  resistive load if 28W of power will not be lost due to SWR.
4.  add two values
-effective energy dissipated
reversed power loss
5.use this  number  as total delivery without losses from generator power supply
6.take  result of calculation from point 3 and use it .
try to calculate
a. what was  a real gain at NY experiment
b. What would be real gain if  reversed power loss would not be present.
c. How much power than will be  at output  of apparatus in Watts


PS do not forget that if I operate at 3 harmonic than we are not dealing with real power of fundamental frequency.

One more test provided that will be documented
 Resistive load  ( light bulbs in series connected directly to power supply
– light was not present
–  spark is present if interrupted.

20120119 – Rossi interview follow up discussion – Call in

Segment #1:  This week in free energy

Presenter:  Sterling Allan, CEO, founder of New Energy Congress
Estimated Time:  20 minutes

Segment #2:  Scarecrow’s News Rant – Fuzzy bunnies, cute puppies, SOPA and PIPA

Presenter:  an editorial by SmartScarecrow
Estimated time:  15 minutes

In the economy, Kodak has filed for bankruptcy.  Kodak missed the opportunity to exploit the digital revolution and its technology became obsolete.  I remember getting a Kodak camera for Christmas one year.  I remember standing in line to buy film, waiting a week for the film to be processed then trying to remember why I took those pictures in the first place.  But, Kodak will be missed.  The jobs will be missed. But in a free market where people vote with their dollars, that is what happens.  Come up with a good product that people want to buy and do well.  But you have to keep looking over your shoulder to make sure the next bright young fellow don’t come up with something better that will knock you off your thrown.

Anyway, that is how a FREE MARKET is supposed to work.  In the economic system we live under today, it is possible to influence law makers to provide special protection if you understand how to play the game.  Take for example the insurance companies.  As the economy has slowed down, fewer employers find it necessary to provide health insurance as a benefit to attract employees so they dont.  Individuals shopping for health insurance are shocked at the prices.  The net result is that many today, for any number of reasons, do not carry health insurance.

The Health Insurance Industry is well connected.  They have many lobbying groups representing their interests to both federal and state government.  They spend a lot of money to convince our elected officials that their product, more than any other, is in the national interest.  So we end up with “Obama Care” which has provisions in it that mandate individuals to buy health insurance whether they want it or not!  So much for a free market.

Another group that knows how to play the game is the entertainment industry.  Some would propose that they are actually part of the game.  Revenues are falling for Hollywood and the big radio and television networks.  The consumer is voting with their dollars as is the free market way. 

Considering the quality of the content provided, its amusing that anyone would be surprised that people are avoiding it.  The “formula” top 40 music, the “formula” movies with nothing more than a few “big name draws”, the television news that all sounds the same regardless of who is on.  It’s a wasteland and even worse, its a waste of time and money. 

Ah, but the entertainment industry is well connected!  They have friends in high places.  Geee, if only we got our bought and paid for politicians to pass a law favorable to our interests!  That would force those entertainment hungry sheep back into the theaters to watch out crappy movies and into the record stores to by our vinyl records of crappy music.  Yeah, that’s the ticket.

And so we consider SOPA and its sibling PIPA in the senate.  These laws could and probably will kill the Internet as we know it.  Something that would have been considered “fair use” under existing copyright law, will now technically be illegal.  Even worse, the operator of an Internet site is put in the position of being the “enforcer” which will be a cost most will be unable to bear.  Something as benign as the pre-show music videos played out leading up to The SmartScarecrow Show will be a tempting target under the new laws if enacted.

Yesterday, January 18th 2012, many of the most popular Internet sites protested these laws by blacking out their sites.  Under the current system, what they probably should have done is had their lobbyists spread liberal amounts of money around Washington DC to make sure the message was heard loud and clear.  When “money junkies” are in charge, they seem to ignore any other argument regardless of how valid.

Now to top it all off, the Supreme Court has handed down a decision that Congress can “re-copyright” materials in the public domain.  The top court was ruling on a petition by a group of orchestra conductors, educators, performers, publishers and film archivists who urged the justices to reverse an appellate court that ruled against the group, which has relied on artistic works in the public domain for their livelihoods.

They claimed that re-copyrighting public works would breach the speech rights of those who are now using those works without needing a license. There are millions of decades-old works at issue. Some of the well-known ones include H.G. Wells’ Things to Come; Fritz Lang’s Metropolis and the musical compositions of Igor Fyodorovich Stravinsky.

The court, however, was sympathetic to the plaintiffs’ argument. Writing for the majority, Justice Ruth Ginsburg said “some restriction on expression is the inherent and intended effect of every grant of copyright.” But the top court, with Justice Elena Kagan recused, said Congress’ move to re-copyright the works to comport with an international treaty was more important.

So maybe if Kodak had understood the current rules of the game, there would be a law against digital cameras, digital media and another that mandated every American should purchase a Brownie and at least 10 rolls of film every month!  Poor Kodak!  They let a simple thing like products that were obsolete get in the way of their continued success!

Segment #3: Feature Presentation – How do you follow up an interview with Andrea Rossi?

Presenter:  SmartScarecrow and random Skype call ins
Estimated time:  30 minutes

Had a fellow all lined up to do my show on January 26th.  Seemed like a nice fellow who had a pretty interesting gadget that lit up a bunch of LED’s powered by a hamster running on a wheel.  Hey, when you are producing an alternative energy show and need experimenters who are willing to show off thier projects to keep your audience happy, you sometimes take what you can get!  In any case, after seeing Andrea Rossi interviewed on The SmartScarecrow show, this fellow calls me up and tells me, “No way I am going to follow Andrea Rossi on your show … maybe in a month or two!”.

hmmmm ….

First of all, that paragraph above was intended as a joke!  There is no guy with a hamster wheel out there lighting LED’s … at least I don’t think so.  If there is, have him contact me!

Second, I have to credit Sterling Allan of with scoring the interview with Andrea Rossi.  Sterling has had previous dealings with the man and Rossi trusts him.  The only reason the interview was hosted on The SmartScarecrow Show is because I have the technical ability to do it and the big alternative media outlets could not schedule it in a timely manner.  Thanks Sterling!

Third, all I can say is wow!  I think the interview went very well.  Sterling was very well prepared and Rossi, though he kept his trade secrets intact, was very forthcoming in his description of his plans for the eCat.  Having listened to just about every interview the man has given, I think this one is probably the best one I have heard.  The fact that it was broadcast live on The SmartScarecrow Show and published to the Scarecrow Labs YouTube channel is a matter of some pride.

The live broadcast was very well attended.  We had about 40 logged into the chat room and as many 285 watching live on Justin TV.  It appears that there may have been as many as 1000 watching the show from third party sites that echo the live broadcast.  I think the last time I saw numbers like that was when Ozzie Freedom of Water for Gas fame was a guest on the show.  So it was easy to get excited with so many live views.

Then the YouTube view count started coming in.  Sterling had talked me into publishing the interview right after it was aired live.  I sort of wanted to hold it back and use it as the feature presentation on the live show scheduled for January 19th 2012.  But Sterling made a good argument so it was published to all on demand locations about 2 hours after the live interview was completed.  Within 24 hours, I sort of figured out that I was going to need a new topic for the show on January 19th.  Within 48 hours total viewer count was exceeding 5000.  In just three days after publishing, total viewer count was well on its way to 10,000.  When I checked this morning, views on YouTube alone was over 10,000 and its still climbing.

hmmmm ….

Ok, so the Rossi interview was a “HIT” it seems.  I am not totally surprised as the technology Andrea Rossi is putting forward is exciting.  It could be the “game changer” many of us have hoped for.  And for all his flaws, Rossi comes off as a pretty sharp business man who knows how to put an organization together.  So he not only has an exciting technology, he also has the business skills required to get right into fray and win against competition.  The future of Andrea Rossi and his eCat could be very bright indeed.  And if he is successful, many will benefit.  And Andrea Rossi could deservedly nudge Bill Gates out of his “richest man in the world” seat.  Go get ’em Andrea !!!

But this leaves me with a dilemma.  I thought I had a really cool feature presentation to put on for the show of January 19th but at this point it looks like the on demand views have pretty much reached “market saturation”.  A rebroadcast of the interview as planned would probably bore most to tears.

Ok … think fast … hmmm …

GOT IT !!!

Let’s do a sequel !!!  Just like Arnold and Stallone !!!  yeah, yeah, that’s the ticket …

Well, not really a sequel, but a talking head review.  Rossi discussed some rather exciting news during the interview.  Just the fact that they have figured out how to get it to work without a canister of hydrogen was news worthy.  There was much to digest from the interview that required a little time to consider.

So tonight we talk about it.  Participation from the live audience is hoped for.  Would like to get opinions and ideas from as many as possible.

First, if you have not already seen the live interview, head over to YouTube and watch it –

Second, if you have an opinion or just have something you want to get off your chest, add “thesmartscarecrowshow” to your Skype contacts list.  The whole last half of the show tonight will be devoted to Skype call ins from live viewers.  Hope to give as many as we have time for an opportunity to state their case.  Hope we can discussion of the pros and the cons as all positions need to be considered.

Third, have fun … none of us are paid a dime for being involved in this stuff … we do it because we enjoy it and because we feel an obligation to give back to the society that we are a part of.  We know that individually we will not change the world.  But enough drops of water can become a tidal wave under the right conditions.  Become part of the wave.

Questions submitted for Andrea Rossi

Question 1

Owen Charles

Is your secret catalyst a physical element or is it a  frequency/vibration/resonance emitter that will finesse/coax the process to begin?



Question 2

Lou Peguero

You have said that you are having patent issues, why not sell the e-cat secret to the public directly? 

I mean come up with a dollar amount (and be  imaginative) and once the dollar amount has been reached then you give e-cat to the world (like Salk did with the polio vaccine). 

Mr. Rossi you have the potential to change the world as we know it, and in this modern times the time for excuses is over!!

Thank You,

Lou Peguero

Question 3

Wolf Fischer

first let me thank you for conducting the interview with Rossi on next Saturday as well as giving listeners the possibility of asking questions!

If possible, I would be very happy and grateful, if you could ask Mr.
Rossi one or even more of my questions below (I have put them in the order of my personal interest):

1. Can you tell us something about the stability of the Ecats during the last year?

I ask, because (in my interpretation) it seemed as if some of the demonstrations didn’t achieve the results that you (and others) were hoping for.

Especially the test filmed by Krivit (whose negative and sometimes aggressive attitude towards you I just can’t understand) or also the 1MW plant test at the end of october seem to indicate that (earlier?) Ecats were or are more difficult to control than you might have thought..?

So, how often did the Ecat work as you wanted it to? 7 out of 10? 5 out of 10? And can you perhaps even tell us, how good it is working now because of the better controling hardware and software from National Instruments?

2. What have you learned from the last year?

Especially in terms of people, handling the public interest, coping with negative reactions from the public, etc.

3. Would you have done something differently during the last year, if you could go back to January 1st, 2011?

If so, what would this be? Again with the people, public interest, the public demonstrations, etc.

4. Where do you see yourself and your company in one / three / five yearS from now?

I wish you, Mr. Allan, and of course Mr. Rossi all the best for the future!


Wolf Fischer

Question 4

Thomas Olszewski

Dear Mr Rossi

   Congratulations on the development of the E-Cat device. Hopefully this device can be in production quickly

   The question I have for you today concerns using the E-Cat in the home environment. Heat requirements for a home can change rapidly.

What is the time that is required to start the E-Cat and how long dose it take to shut down.

If these times are long can the E-Cat be operated at a lower percentage of power and if so how low a percentage of full power will it operate at.

The reason for the question is that thermostats will have to be designed and or reprogrammed to operate the system properly without having large extremes in the house temperatures.

   Is the life of the fuel charge determined by the operating time or the total output power.

For example if operated at 50% power the fuel charge last twice as long?

   Last will the home unit be able to be refueled by the owner since where many live that could use this system there are no contractors to do this work.

For example: Is the core/heat exchanger unit to be set up with quick disconnects so it could be taken or mailed to a repair/rebuild site?

Thank you for your response

Thomas Olszewski

Question 5

Martin Tornberg

1) To what extent is it possible to raise or lower the amount of power that the E-Cat is putting out during its operation? 

For example, if it is used to provide heat, can it be set to “low” (without turning it off) on a warmer day? 

If this is possible, how long does it take to ramp up or ramp down the amount of power generated?

2) Some people have speculated that a device such as the E-Cat could be used to power transportation systems, but based on your demonstrations, it seems that it takes a fair amount of time for the E-Cat to actually get powered up and start generating power independently, and as well as to power off the device. 

This would seem to make it impractical to use for powering anything that needs to be powered up quickly and that doesn’t require at least several hours worth of power, is that correct?

3) Given that it takes time to power up an E-Cat as well as to power it down, it would seem that there is a risk that a lot of people may keep their E-cats running on full power all the time, and during those times when full power is not needed, people could just allow the excess heat to escape into the environment – out the chimney, for example, or out through the exhast pipes of a vehicle, if it is used to power vehicles. 

Isn’t there a risk that this could contribute to global warming and create risks for the environment due to all of the excess heat that is likely to be released if use of the E-Cat were to become prevalent?

Question 6

Jim Yates

You have previously mentioned that your early retail home E-Cat will produce both heat and cooling (from a steam driven heat-pump).
Is the steam motor a piston or turbine motor?  Can the heat-pump be removed to allow the power-shaft to drive other devices?

Question 7

Harry Perini

Dr Joseph Zawodny, of Nasa has filed for a patent for LENR in the United States. Why do they deny Andrea Rossi a patent as he is the rightful inventor?

Question 8


My question for Mr Andrea Rossi is a s follows:

Mr. Rossi, you have been given a Patent, in Italy, on your E-Cat — will you be manufacturing and selling the home units in Italy, as well? … and, how soon can this be expected.

Thank you for your time.

Peter DiSelva

Question 9

Hafsteinn Hafsteinsson

1.    Do you regard NASA’s version and resent statement having any relevance to the E-cat ?
2.    Ted Loder was cut short on Puja Network by the overpowering Dr. Greer when commenting on the E-cat. Are the non-profit agencies such as Orion amongst disbelievers on the E-cat ?
3.    Will the E-cat be the end of all further research in the energy field ? Is it the final and complete solution to the energy crisis ?
4.    Do you envisage other alternatives competing with the E-cat in the future ?

As tensions with Iran escalate on several fronts, most Americans favor military force to stop Tehran from building nuclear weapons if diplomacy fails, a new IBD/TIPP poll shows.

That comes as the Obama administration claims that Iran isn’t yet building a bomb and urged the continuation of a “responsible” policy of economic pressure.

Comments from Mike Rivero of

Either this group is polling the criminally insane again, or “push polling” in just the exactly correct target demographic, to achieve the precise outcome they desire

I know a lot of thinking people on Oahu. And absolutely NONE of my friends or acquaintances think, for a millisecond, that attacking Iran is a really swell idea.

And for the fact and logic challenged, let me break this down for you just one more time.

1. Iran is a signatory to the NNPT. This means that they are allowed to use uranium with which to create nuclear energy projects, which they are doing with Russian technical help.

2. These facilities are inspected by the IAEA.

3. To date, no nuclear materials have gone missing, or unaccounted for.

4. The Iranians are enriching uranium up to 20%, which is necessary for the creation of medical isotopes.

5. You have to be enriching uranium over 95% to create a nuclear bomb, which the Iranians are not doing.

6. Israel refuses to become a member of the NNPT, and does have nuclear weapons, and refuses for their nuclear sites to be inspected.

7. Israel wants the US to attack Iran because Israel claims that Iran is an existential threat to Israel’s survival.

8. Russia and China may well enter the war on the side of Iran, should Iran be attacked; both are nuclear armed countries.

SO, to recap: we are looking engaging in a thermonuclear war with Russia and China to neutralize one of Israel’s existential threats which has no nuclear weapons program.


The Iranians haven’t started a war in 200 years, and definitely hasn’t started any wars since becoming an Islamic Republic in 1979.

War with Iran? Bank on It!

Witness the selling of war.  It’s not enough that every GOP candidate, with the exception of Ron Paul, is playing the patriotic Commander-in-Chief card, by promising that Iran’s ability to wage all-out nuclear war against the entire planet is imminent, and we got to get in there and stop them; but now the mainstream media is jumping on the “Let’s get them dirty bastards” bandwagon.

In less than 24 hours, we’ve seen the mainstream drag the usual suspects in front of the camera to scare/sell the hell out of America over Iran. 

John Bolton (former Ambassador to UN) told Fox News that we need military action soon to avoid a nuclear response from Iran (See here).  Oliver North is covering two topics at once in his interview with Newsmax, by playing the red team-blue team game, tossing the Dems under the bus for allowing a potential nuclear Iran (See here).

So we have a rogue Middle-Eastern country, who is for sure a member of the Axis of Evil, producing weapons of mass destruction and will not hesitate to use them? Hmm, sounds familiar, like as in the last decade we’ve been sending blood and treasure to the same region for the same reasons. 

Forget about the fact the CIA director, Panetta, admitted just this month that Iran was not developing a nuke (See here), or the fact that the hype over the IAEA report that some politicians are using as smoking gun to launch this next war has been proven to say no such thing (See here). 
Forget the truth, because dang it, they want to come over here and take our freedoms.  The military-industrial complex Ike warned about, along with the band of bankster brothers are running the show, and we have a never-ending bailout, just as we will have never-ending war on terror. 

It’s time to wake up and look at this mess for what it is and to see who and what is behind this next war.  Fact is that when the President signed NDAA 2012 into law on New Year’s Eve, not only did he give the Executive Branch the power to black bag Americans without the benefits of the Constitution, but the same legislation also started a campaign against the Iran central bank, leading to the tension in recent weeks in the Straits of Hormuz (See here). 

Fact is our own CIA director says they don’t have a nuke.  Fact is Iran has not invaded a country in a hundred years. Fact is in 2008 Iran warned it would stop trading its oil in dollars, giving exceptions to a few big trading partners who were sitting on large dollar reserves. But as was reported this week the exceptions are now gone, and this war has already begun; because if there is a surefire way to get attacked by the USA, it is to stop using Federal Reserve Notes.  The late Muammar Gaddafi is the latest example of someone who made that mistake (See here).  

We are being fed to yet another meat grinder, under false pretense, in order that many can suffer for the profit of a demented few.

Segment #3: Feature Presentation – Project presentation by Inspironator

Presenter:  SmartScarecrow and Inspironator
Estimated time:  20 minutes

Notes from Inspironator:

I’m supplementing the wood I burn in the wood burning stove using an oil drip, from vegetable oil.  I used it 2 nights ago, over 5 hours and used 0.16 gal, or about 19000 BTU.  I’ll check and see how much cord wood that equates to but I’m doing this because I’m tired of hauling, cutting, splitting and stacking wood.

The basic outline for the talk is:

The modifications

WVO as a Fuel

Clean Burning Tips

Shutting down the burn cycle

Benefits: Reduced Wood Consumption, Efficiency & Saved Labor

I could give you a better outline or even more – a script after I spend some time finalizing it tonight.

I hope we can have a lot more interaction from the crowd, so I’m not going to give too much info and do more of a “this is how I did it and here are some results”.

Iowa is over.  Now its on to New Hampshire.  But the wake of Iowa really has not settled yet.  Ron Paul came in third behind Mittens Romney and some unknown guy named Santorum.  Its an interesting side note.  Its fun watching the Republicans take turns leading the pack.  Wonder which one will shoot self in foot next!

Take your pick, there are plenty of “End time” scenarios out there for everyone to have a favorite. 

2012 End of the World

This YouTube video was in the hopper and ready for playout but did not make the live show do to time constraints.

December 21, 2012- The End of The World

A really cute YouTube video by Snarkipedia that the live audience really got a giggle out of.

NASA – Headquarters Emergency Operations – Personal Family Preparedness Plan

This YouTube video was another one that was in the play list but had to be cut do to time constraints.  Basically, its a NASA video produced for NASA employees telling them that they should make reasonable preparations for unknown disasters.  But by all means, dont store more than 7 days of food and water or you might be considered a terrorist.

One item I mentioned got a lot of attention from the audience and they asked for links to articles.
This was my mention of the Gobkli Tepe construction found in south eastern Turkey.  These ruins have been dated anywhere from 9000BC to 13000BC making them currently the oldest known megolithic constructions.  Pushes the beginning of civilization back thousands of years further than most of us have been taught.
