Kirchhoff’s Law of Thermal Emission Invalidated
"The Theory of Heat Radiation" Revisited:
A Commentary on the Validity of Kirchhoff’s Law of Thermal Emission
and Max Planck's Claim of Universality
"The experimental facts that invalidate Kirchhoff's Law of Thermal Emission
have now been augmented by a theoretical proof of its invalidity.
The implications for physics and astronomy are profound."

"Affirming Kirchhoff’s Law of thermal emission, Max Planck conferred upon his own equation and its constants, h and k, universal significance. All arbitrary cavities were said to behave as blackbodies ...

"... Arbitrary cavities do not contain black radiation. Kirchhoff’s formulation is invalid. As a direct consequence, the constants h and k do not have fundamental meaning and along with “Planck length”, “Planck time”, “Planck mass”, and “Planck temperature”, lose the privileged position they once held in physics ...
"... For Max Planck, as for his teacher Gustav Kirchhoff, cavity radiation was independent of the nature of the enclosure. In reality, such ideas were not supported by experiment, as arbitrary cavities do not contain black, or normal, radiation. By applying his law to all cavities, the father of quantum theory detached his equation from physical reality itself."

Scientists slow down the speed of light travelling in free space
University of Glasgow
"Scientists [from the University of Glasgow and Heriot-Watt University] have managed to slow photons in free space for the first time. They have demonstrated that applying a mask to an optical beam to give photons a spatial structure can reduce their speed.
"... The work demonstrates that, after passing the light beam through a mask, photons move more slowly through space. Crucially, this is very different to the slowing effect of passing light through a medium such as glass or water, where the light is only slowed during the time it is passing through the material -- it returns to the speed of light after it comes out the other side. The effect of passing the light through the mask is to limit the top speed at which the photons can travel."

American Sniper Exposed As Giant Hoax

• American Sniper? / telesurtv
"Chris Kyle built his reputation as a sniper during one of the most criminal operations of the entire occupation of Iraq, the 2nd siege of Fallujah ... The fact that a man who participated in the 2nd siege of Fallujah — an operation that killed between 4,000 to 6,000 civilians, displaced 200,000, and may have created an epidemic of birth defects and cancers — can come home, be embraced as a hero, be celebrated for the number of people he has killed, write a bestselling book based on that experience, and have it made into a Hollywood film is something that we need to reflect on as a society."
• 7 heinous lies “American Sniper” is telling America / salon
"The film American Sniper ... [is] built on a set of half-truths, myths and outright lies that Hollywood didn’t see fit to clear up ... In the book, Kyle refers to everyone he fought as “savage, despicable” evil. He writes, “I only wish I had killed more." He also writes, "I loved what I did. I still do. If circumstances were different – if my family didn’t need me – I’d be back in a heartbeat. I’m not lying or exaggerating to say it was fun. I had the time of my life being a SEAL."

America needs to bring its troops home from all over the world, now.
"In the counsels of Government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the Military Industrial Complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists, and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals so that security and liberty may prosper together."
-- President Eisenhower, January 1961 –
"War is just a racket. A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of people. Only a small inside group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few at the expense of the masses … I believe in adequate defense at the coastline and nothing else. If a nation comes over here to fight, then we'll fight. The trouble with America is that when the dollar only earns 6 percent over here, then it gets restless and goes overseas to get 100 percent. Then the flag follows the dollar and the soldiers follow the flag.”
-- Major General Smedley Butler, USMC, on Interventionism, Excerpt from a speech delivered in 1933 –
"'Tis our true policy to steer clear of permanent alliances with any portion of the foreign world."
-- George Washington (1732-1799), U.S. general, president. speech, Sept. 17, 1796. Farewell Address, vol. 35, The Writings of George Washington, ed. John C. Fitzpatrick (1940). --
"Peace, commerce, and honest friendship with all nations - entangling alliances with none."
-- Thomas Jefferson noninterventionist foreign policy position, 1801 inaugural address --
"...Commerce, which if properly managed, will be a better instrument for obliging the interested nations of Europe to treat us with justice."
--Thomas Jefferson (1797) --
"I have ever deemed it fundamental for the United States never to take active part in the quarrels of Europe. Their political interests are entirely distinct from ours. Their mutual jealousies, their balance of power, their complicated alliances, their forms and principles of government, are all foreign to us. They are nations of eternal war."
-- Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826), U.S. president. Letter, June 11, 1823, to President James Monroe --
"America does not go abroad in search of monsters to destroy. She is the well-wisher to the freedom and independence of all. She well knows that by one enlisting under other banners than her own, were they even the banners of foreign independence, she would involve herself beyond the power of extrication in all the wars of interest and intrigue, of individual avarice, envy and ambition, which assume the colors and usurp the standards of freedom. The fundamental maxims of her policy would insensibly change from liberty to force....""
-- John Quincy Adams (1821) --
"The great rule of conduct for us in regard to foreign nations is, in extending our commercial relations, to have with them as little political connection as possible."
-- George Washington –
"Whatever it is that the government does, sensible Americans would prefer that the government do it to somebody else. This is the idea behind foreign policy."
-- P.J. (Patrick Jake) O'Rourke (b. 1947), U.S. journalist. "Very Foreign Policy," Parliament of Whores (1991) --
