FP: COP27 Host Egypt Arresting Environmental Activists

Essay by Eric Worrall

COP27 will be unusually quiet, because the local protestors who usually show up to such events will likely all be in jail.

Egypt to Host Big U.N. Climate Summit While Muzzling Environmental Activists

COP27 will put Biden’s human rights agenda on a collision course with his climate change agenda.

SEPTEMBER 14, 2022, 3:04 PM

In the run-up to hosting a major U.N. climate summit in November, Egypt has publicly touted its commitment to curb carbon emissions and framed itself as a leader in supporting the developing world’s adaptation to new climate shocks. But behind the scenes, the Egyptian government has cracked down on environmental activists in the country through harassment, intimidation, and arrests, according to interviews with environmental experts and a new report from an international human rights watchdog.

Egypt’s role as the host of the 27th U.N. Climate Change Conference, or COP27, is expected to shed fresh light on President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi’s widespread crackdown on the country’s civil society, including environmental advocates, posing a vexing foreign-policy challenge for major democratic powers seeking to advance ambitious climate goals even if it means cooperating with some of the world’s most repressive autocratic regimes. For U.S. President Joe Biden, the upcoming COP27 summit puts his human rights policy on a possible collision course with his climate policy.

“There’s this underlying tension between two supposedly different realms: human rights on one side and robust climate action on the other side,” said Richard Pearshouse, the director of environment and human rights at Human Rights Watch (HRW), an advocacy group. “Now we’re seeing that tension really play out.”

HRW released a new report this week accusing the Egyptian government of “severely curtail[ing]” environmental groups’ abilities to do their job, through harassment, arrests, and intimidation, forcing some activists to flee the country. Other environmental advocacy groups voiced concern that the Egyptian government is limiting the number of civil society groups that will be allowed to attend COP27 and tightly controlling planned protests, relegating only limited demonstrations in a cordoned-off area on the margins of the conference, which will be held in Sharm el-Sheikh on Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula from Nov. 6 to 18.

The cited Human Rights Watch Report goes into further detail;

Egypt: Government Undermining Environmental Groups

COP27 Countries Should Press Cairo to End Restrictions, Enable Participation

“The Egyptian government has imposed arbitrary funding, research, and registration obstacles that have debilitated local environmental groups, forcing some activists into exile and others to steer clear of important work,” said Richard Pearshouse, environment director at Human Rights Watch. “The government should immediately lift its onerous restrictions on independent nongovernmental organizations, including environmental groups.”

In June, Human Rights Watch interviewed 13 activists, academics, scientists, and journalists working on environmental issues in Egypt. All have been involved in promoting, advocating for, and working on climate action in some capacity. Some currently work for nongovernmental groups. Others who did stopped for safety or security reasons or left the country. They spoke on the condition of anonymity for security reasons. Six other people declined to be interviewed, variously citing security concerns or that government restrictions had forced them to stop their environmental work.

Those interviewed described a sharp reduction in the space for independent environment and climate work since President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi’s government took office in 2014. They described  harassment and intimidation tactics, including arrests and difficulties travelling,  creating a general atmosphere of fear. These experiences mirror similar tactics pursued by Egyptian authorities against independent local and international groups more generally since 2014 as part of a relentless crackdown on civil society.

Others described being repeatedly held up for security checks and questioning at Cairo airport upon leaving or arriving, and sometimes prevented from leaving the country. One person described the harassment of their partners in the Egyptians Against Coal campaign, a popular but ultimately unsuccessful movement that emerged in response to the government’s drive to reintroduce coal to power cement factories from 2013.

Well I’m shocked – who could have predicted a military dictator with a vile human rights record would arrest people who might say embarrassing things about government policy, ahead of hosting a big international climate conference?

Let us hope President Biden stays true to his public policy of standing up for human rights, and finds time to draft a diplomatic letter to Egypt to protest the arrest and intimidation of local climate and environmental activists, in between Biden’s diplomatic missions to Saudi, Iran and Venezuela to beg for more oil.

Chiming in only because my significant other was diagnosed with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) 4 years ago at the Cleveland Clinic here, and it has progressed to cognitive impairment now (not yet severe). Using the Montreal Assessment protocol, 26-30 is normal (30 is ‘perfect’). 25 and below is MCI, 20 and below is CI, and below 15 is severe CI. She is in the treatment hands of both a psychiatrist and a neurologist, the best money can buy here in Broward County. She is on two prescription drugs for anxiety disorder, but none for CI because none exist.

Ritalin can alleviate symptomatic apathy in the cognitively impaired. Biden may be taking it since he frequently displays flashes of anger, the opposite of apathy. But Ritalin has NO clinical evidence (yet) that it can alleviate (even briefly) the underlying cognitive impairment—no matter the underlying impairment cause. There are several, including vascular dementia (multiple ministrokes), Lewy Body dementia (Robin Williams), and Alzheimers (Ronald Reagan). (Hers was, at least originally, clearly sudden onset from a severe PTSD form of anxiety disorder from nearly dying of anaphylactic shock. Each main drug works for 2-3 years, then stops. We are on main drug number 4.)

I would not use the word “accuse” there, HotScot. Dementia is a condition that at least most sufferers haven’t done anything to bring on, it is no fault of their own.

I would also note that, if Biden is not suffering from dementia, the only possible reason for his behavior is that, from his very roots, he is a vicious, nasty, evil bastard.

Saying that he has dementia is being charitable.

Your reply to Rud was about dementia’s response to a specific drug. Of that there is little doubt however, you are making an assumption Biden is suffering from the condition.

Whilst I agree his cognitive and physical abilities are not good, they are consistent with many 80 years olds (confusion and shuffling), it does not mean he’s suffering from dementia.

We in the US may well have a shepherded president who is being controlled by his staff. He has mentioned, more than once, that his staff would not like him taking more questions, etc, that he will get in “trouble”.

Hot Scot. If someone in their 80’s or 90’s or ANY age is “confused,” it is because they are impaired. This is NOT a normal characteristic of aging.

MCI [Mild Cognitive Impairment] is NOT the same as normal aging.

Hot Scot:

Apparently, your experience with people in their 80’s and 90’s has been much different than mine.

The ONLY elderly people I have known (and, through church, chorale, family, profession, the general public, and taking animal shelter dogs and puppies to nursing homes for years, I have known many) who are “confused” were/are suffering from a disease, e.g., Altzheimer’s.

Meaningful cognitive impairment does not happen to most older people. That is a myth.

And I am not, not for many years, yet, personally biased to assert the above.

Finally, a friend of mine, a case manager, assesses the cognitive abilities of seniors in our community to determine what services/treatment they need. She said that Biden is clearly suffering from some form of enduring, persistent, dementia.

He is also a wicked man.

He’s an old man, your video is certainly indicative of that, but no one can say he’s suffering from dementia (Alzheimer’s disease etc.) without a formal diagnosis.

The fact is, Biden has always been an idiot. Even Obama said “Don’t underestimate Joe’s ability to f*ck things up” in 2020. He also said “And you know who really doesn’t have it? Joe Biden.”

Obama worked with Joe for years, he didn’t want him to be POTUS. Don’t you think that unscrupulous fokker would have blown the whistle had he been able to?

Obama had urged Biden not to run for president in 2016 and told an adviser that he didn’t think Biden was a viable candidate. “It had stung Biden badly in 2015 when Obama made clear his preference for Hillary Clinton,” Allen and Parnes wrote. “Adding insult to injury, Obama’s advisers told Biden aides back then that they didn’t think he could beat Clinton. They pressured him to get out of the way.” (Washington Free Beacon).

Obama didn’t want Joe to run because he’s an idiot, not because he was demented.

I wonder if the biggest problem with Biden is that he is like a puppet with someone behind the scenes pulling the strings? Who writes his speeches and decides the message he should be sending out to the American public? Perhaps these are not even elected representatives and the voters should know what is going on. I blame Republicans as much as Democrats for the mess and the failure to put out a clear and concise set of policies that the public can compare and contrast.

Don’t blame his speechwriters, Joe knows what he’s saying and doing.

Look at him ranting and shaking his fists, this is a man drunk on power, echoes of hitler who was also dismissed as a fanatic by many.

Nor can we look to history to understand what he’s doing, or what’s going on in the world. As usual, the trap of socialism is always sprung in unexpected ways.

By any conventional measure the world economy should have collapsed by now. It hasn’t and it’s left financial guru’s scratching their heads.

Something few people understand is going on and it’s likely a form of socialism no one has ever seen before.

The MSM was captured many years ago, the first target of any despot, but this time there was no ground war mounted, it’s all been a social war. The great march through the institutions has been largely successful; the seats of learning have been captured, the financial institutions tee’d up (e.g. Blackrock and all the others with their ESG compliance regulations and banks with their digital money systems ready to be switched on) local governments etc. all seized by the left.

All we’re waiting for is the switch to be flipped for a bloodless western descent into totalitarianism.

This psychiatrist says Biden is gravely impaired:

“Norwegian psychiatrist Fred Heggen claims that Joe Biden is suffering from “dementia” ***

Heggen, [ ] a medical director at the Lovisenberg Diaconal Hospital’s psychiatric clinic in Oslo, says the presidential candidate is suffering from obvious cognitive failure. ***

The psychiatrist asserts that Biden’s behavior at campaign events and debates over the past few moths, characterized by forgetfulness, mischief, confusions, gaffes, and aggression, is indicative of someone who is beginning to struggle to perform basic mental functions.

… Everyone who has had experience with people with dementia knows that a deterioration can come quickly and have a particularly dramatic course, Heggen wrote.

The psychiatrist suggested that Biden’s campaign staff were aware of his limitations and that this is why he is only rarely presented for short speeches and is heavily screened from the public and the media. ***

(Source: Norwegian Psychiatrist Claims Joe Biden is Suffering From “Dementia,” Paul J. Watson, April 23, 2020https://conservative-headlines.org/norwegian-psychiatrist-claims-joe-biden-is-suffering-from-dementia/ )

And that was over 5 years ago. It is getting worse (as you can see from video evidence).

And, regardless of whether it is dementia caused by his neurosurgeries or by Altzheimer’s or by another cause or combination of causes, he is seriously cognitively impaired.

We now know how all that worked out. Just like the disaster in Afghanistan. Joe Biden is real good at throwing millions of innocent people to the wolves.

Biden has caused the death and displacement of literally tens of millions of people over his political lifetime. We are all in danger while he is in power. This should be obvious to those paying attention.

  • Forcing citizens to get multiple boosters of replicating unique* assemblages of mRNA partial protein strands that resemble the prions causing “Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease”?

Which human rights did Biden stand up for and where??

*Analysis of booster shots identified the fact that no two shots were the same, i.e. the mRNA strand types and amounts were different.

I would recommend that climate activists and protesters should think long and hard before contemplating protesting at COP[OUT]27 lest they find out what the inside of Egyptian prisons are like and how they operate.

Reminds me of the motion picture Midnight Express which is based on a true story. In the film, an American is caught trying to leave Turkey with illegal drugs on his person. He is arrested and has a harrowing experience inside of a Turkish prison before escaping when the opportunity to do so presented itself by chance.

A good movie for movie buffs out there who haven’t seen it yet.

I found it quite distressing.

Prison clearly doesn’t work under conventional conditions because it requires control, which is the very thing criminals rebel against.

Prisoners enter prison, they are subjected to much harsher control than in the community, then are released into a community that’s a cakewalk to them.

How about we change the dynamics slightly. We create free prisons. No rules, allow prisoners to live as they wish. No guards other than to patrol the prison boundaries.

Prisoners are given a financial budget. Other than that they can do what they want. They can order food and drugs as they wish. They can murder and kill each other if they wish. they have complete freedom to do as they wish within their own budget.

Lets see what emerges and we might have a solution to society at large.

I wholeheartedly support rehabilitation, but prison is not a suitable environment for it. I’m an ex cop, I have seen prisoners released into the very environment that formed them in the first place. They have no chance of getting out the cycle of reoffending.

I have seen prisoners released then commit a crime on the same day so they can be locked up again.

Rehabilitation should be a secondary and completely separate part from a prison environment. By all means make terms shorter and harsher, prisons should be feared, then provide sufficient resources to ensure they are properly rehabilitated out-with the prison.

Prisons are occupied predominantly by reoffenders. That should tell us all we need to know.

In the US, especially, we need MANY MORE prisons, and to end the current corrosive welfare system that has created the millions of criminals created by the “US government is your daddy” system that funded them to be raised in households without fathers.

All welfare recipients MUST be DNA tested so that when a 14 YO girl has a baby the FATHER can be prosecuted for the rape. Many of those fathers are from the same welfare system, and if not, probably have or will have contact with law enforcement.

Prisoners are given a financial budget. 

You are rewarding criminal behavior by giving them a budget. If I remember my college course in psychology correctly, rewarding any behavior is going to encourage more and more of that behavior. Nothing will change.

When they are released, you are simply moving the criminal behavior to the outside world, if you release them at all.

I think you should reexamine your psychology orthodoxy because so far, it’s not working no matter how good the psychologists tell us their methods are.

Prisons are getting fuller and prisoners released early to make room for new ones.

Prisons should be the most terrifying place anyone could imagine, that way they might not be so careless as to be sent to one.

Incarcerating a White Collar ‘creative’ accountant with a psychotic killer is akin to giving a death sentence to the one good at juggling books.

‘based on’ a true story…

Much of the film was just made up, including the escape. It wasn’t chance, they bribed a guard to let him have it off with his wife (or girlfriend?) in a car, and they just drove away. Obviously that wasn’t exciting enough for a film.

Having fairly recently been to Egypt, this doesn’t surprise me in the least. The last thing on the minds of those struggling in marginal economies is their “carbon footprint”. Even in Cairo they still do open air burning of garbage to try to dispose of their waste. That’s if anyone even bothers to gather together their garbage into one place so that it can be disposed of. Not really top-of-mind for the people there.

I’m sorry Mr. Gramer but I was unaware Joe Biden has a human right policy. I do wish you had summarized it, or posted a link to it.

Whatever Joe Biden’s human rights policy is, he certainly does not appear to be applying itI to his own Administration, nor to its Law Enforcement and DOJ agencies, nor to any of its policies in the USA, assuming it has anything to do with human rights, of course, which since I don’t know what it is, I cannot evaluate it.

So far, it seems to be missing in action in the US, so I would not be surprised to see Biden ignore it around the world. After all, this is the same guy who plans to give Iran one trillion dollars of US taxpayer money and let them get nukes. I can’t think of a more egregious abuse of human rights than starting WWIII.

“After all, this is the same guy who plans to give Iran one trillion dollars of US taxpayer money and let them get nukes. I can’t think of a more egregious abuse of human rights than starting WWIII.”

What rational person would think it is a good idea to give religious fanatics who are State sponsors of terrorism, access to billions of dollars and nuclear weapons? The answer is no rational person would do such a thing.

But Joe Biden and Barack Obama will. They are eager to do such a thing. Why? Why are Obama and Biden enamoured with Iranian religious fanatics to the point that they would make them a nuclear power and certainly spawn a war in the Middle East as a result, as the Israelis and allies move to pre-empt the Mad Mullahs nuclear war dreams?

This is one of the most stupid, dangerous moves the Obama-Biden Cabal have made. It doesn’t make any sense. It only helps Iranian religious fanatics who think nothing of murdering innocent people. And you are going to give them access to nuclear weapons? How crazy are you?

Obama and Biden are guaranteeing a war in the Middle East in the very near future by bending their knee to Iranian religious fanatics. Perhaps Obama is secretly a religious fanatic that hates the United States, like the Mad Mullahs of Iran and is trying to help them out. That might explain his part. And Joe, well, he’s just going along with the Obama program because he’s too stupid to know any better, and all his current advisors are former Obama minions.

It doesn’t make sense to give the Mad Mullahs of Iran nuclear weapons, yet that’s what Obama and Biden are aiming to do.

September 15, 2022 3:25 am

Sorry peeps, this is an epic but touches upon what’s being talked about and also upon most of the readership.
Look after yourselves. OK?

Much talk of Biden and Greta..

Let’s start with this:
Headline:”Most Americans Over 50 Suffer Some Type of Joint Pain (Poll)from here
It’s talking about Arthritis, in all its manifestations

Arthritis is an autoimmune disorder – your own body is attacking itself.
Why:

  1. Because something else attacked it, relentlessly and mercilessly
  2. Your intrinsic immune system malfunctioned in that it did not have the resources to fend off the ‘something else
  3. It is overworked because of the destruction/removal of ‘protective things

1/ The ‘something else‘ is, in a nut-shell, Oxidative Stress.
That comes from 3 main sources, in order of importance/magnitude:

  1. The consumption of sugar in its various forms but really = Carbohydrate Food
  2. The consumption of things that have been ‘burnt’ – grilled protein (classically animal flesh) and smoking (tobacco/weed/whatever)
  3. Alcohol, whether drank, inhaled or rubbed into your skin

2/ The protective things are ‘bacteria‘ = bacteria that are/comprise our own personal biome. Generally reckoned to outnumber our own cells by at least a factor of 10.
e.g. Consider just your skin. It is alive/crawling/covered-with bacteria All The Time. Consider a space of one metre all around you, generally reckoned to contain 10’s if not 100’s of trillions of micro-organisms. That is just your own little bubble and there is no escaping it.

Take or do ‘the sniff test’ If that bubble ‘seems OK‘ then it is OK. Nothing in that bubble will hurt you and nothing resident upon you will neither.
(It is why after all, we actually have a Sense Of Smell)

But, if you burst that bubble by/or strenuously wash/clean/sterilise your skin with repeated (daily) bathing/showering and/or the constant use of ‘sanitizers’ – that leaves room for ‘Bad Guy Bacteria’ to get into your bubble and onto your skin.

Normally your immune system would see them and take them out but, if it’s busy elsewhere clearing away all the damage being created by Oxidative Stress, the Bad Guys will gain a foothold.
What damage they will do can only be guessed at and sure as eggs are eggs, once you or your system figures it out, they will adapt and change.

Have any pennies dropped yet concerning the recent episode of ‘the virus that shall not be named‘ – how almost every measure taken to combat it in fact made it worse?

Some parts of us, notably our brains, have their own immune system.
Should anything get in there, that system will work to protect the brain and will do it in ‘different’ or seemingly strange ways.
So it is with sugar, or Glucose (blood) sugar. It is a small molecule, can get and go anywhere it likes and is The Main Source of Oxidative Stress.
How our brain’s immune system works is by trying to physically shield the neurons from the sugar – manifested as ‘Protein Plaque’
Enter Modern Medicine that says ‘Protein Plaque in the brain causes Dementia. Wrong wrong wrong. The plaque is trying to protect, not to damage.
(Likewise plaque on the insides of large arteries)

So, enough pre-amble and back to the top
By age = 50 almost everyone’s immune system is falling apart and attacking them. By age = 60, make that 97%+++

Why, because our immune system is wrecked.
Why is that if not via ‘nutrient deficiency’ – it is not getting the resources it needs to do its job
This is of course, the real actual manifestation of the, as predicted, Mass Starvation and in turn that is a real effect of Soil Erosion.
Then Climate Change is a manifestation of that.

The missing nutrients are not difficult to find nor are they expensive, unless you are really rich and you want them to be expensive. “One Born Every Minute” etc etc

In any case, get some Vitamin C.
If there is anything wrong inside your mouth, fuzzy/furry teeth, wobbly teeth, gappy teeth, receding and bleeding gums, rotten teeth and or masses of expensive dentistry = You Are Borderline Scurvy. period.
Get some Vitamin C and munch down 250mg every couple of hours while you’re awake. Don’t worry, water is genuinely more toxic to us than Vitamin C.

For an experiment, find some water-soluble Zinc. Ideally Sulphate but Citrate will do.
Take a very modest amount (about 2mg actual Zinc metal) in some water and swish it around your mouth.
4 things may happen:

  1. It will taste really really horrible
  2. It will taste distinctly metallic
  3. It will taste of something but you cannot define it
  4. It will taste of nothing

If either #1 or #2 occur, that is = ‘Good’
You are OK for Zinc and just ‘keep on trucking
If either #3 or #4 occur (esp #4), buy some more of whatever stuff you used (Citrate is fine and very inexpensive) and help yourself to 30mg Zinc daily.
Once you can taste the stuff, cut back to 15mg daily.

(You recognise the main symptoms of Long (shall not be named)?)
That’s what ‘long covid’ is = Zinc deficiency

To help your heart and brain, do what you can to get enough Magnesium into yourself.
It’s been known for at least the last 100 years, human bodies need and use 10mg of Magnesium, daily and per each kilogram of bodyweight.
To the greater extent, Magnesium is what ‘marbles’ are made of:
As in the saying “Old Joe has lost his marbles

Also to hold marbles together, Vitamin B.
Find a 1000mg tablet of Vitamin B complex (8 pence each UK price inc tax), split it in half: one bit in the morning and the 2nd half at bedtime

To hold almost everything else together, find some real natural sea-salt or salt taken from inland salt-flats or seas. In this part of the world, Dead Sea salt is epic and…
Do Not Be Afraid Of Using It

Now do we see how Zinc works?
In deficiency we lose our sense of taste so what do we do, we add more salt to our food to get it back.
And if that salt was ‘natural salt’ or Sea Salt as salt always was – it will contain Zinc.
Ain’t that neat?
Yet what Modern Medicine does when it says ‘Avoid Salt’ is beyond bizarre and frankly, those people are homicidal in their actions if not intent.

Simply cut the booze and reduce the carbs as much as you can, try to get below 10% of calories from carbs.
very simple to reduce the carbs, simply gradually introduce yourself to saturated fat and your sugar consumption will gradually fizzle out.
It’s what butter was invented for.

After that, Do Everything You Can To Avoid Glyphosate.
That means almost all French Fries you find in reastaurants and take-aways and also: most all grain products.
Vast acreages of grain are dessicated pre-harvest using Roundup.
It is Real Actual Insanity in action.
It truly is and is powered by nothing other than $$$$$$
Sod the people that eat that shit.
So just don’t eat it.

After that, we all a have a little ‘pica’ inside of us and it will keep you straight thereafter.

This doesn’t mean that the conference will achieve anything significant, as usual. Didn’t global per capita emissions keep increasing from between the 1st COP conference in 1995 and the 2016 one? And hasn’t the earth’s temperature continued to slowly rise up to today also? Meanwhile last year’s CO2 emissions worldwide reached their highest-ever level as a result of more coal being consumed as part of the economic comeback. This despite the fact that renewables registered their largest historical growth. This tells us one thing: wind and solar still can’t come close to supplanting fossil fuels as main or even significant energy sources. So when in doubt, depend on oil, coal, and natural gas, while COP supporters need to realize that not enough countries are following their suggestions or maybe those suggestions are ineffectual in the first place.
