AZ Border War Zone [Douglas to Nogales] calm before the storm

I’m awake, now what?
Our business progress and plan has been getting attention and we see why:
It’s a model for recognizing the negative influences of a corrupted government-
{which is acting, at best, in its own self-interest and at worst, seems heel-bent
to destroy lives, property, rights, and all that we presumed to preserve against such tyranny and treason.}
and making adjustments which are rational, prudent, and unfortunately necessary.
As our small community takes the steps needed, and we talk of property and resources
and plans for gardens and security for the vegetables as well as for ourselves, good questions
we have gotten from YOU (as our project becomes well-known,) deserve to have public airing,
for they are very much On Point.
First Question to share: 
"If Border Patrol and everyone in residences near the border are so concerned for public support and a clear understanding of the task at hand, of stopping smugglers and their spotter-protectors, then WHY are the locations and details of these SMUGGLING TRAILS NOT PUBLISHED?" Why would the Feds want these places to remain secret? Why are they operating IN SECRET, [if at all]?

Confusion by Committee, or Dosed with Smoke & Mirrors

TLCU special essay by Frank

"I saw you in my dream, George."
"Was I awake, in your dream, Gracie?"
"I hope so, George, you were smoking a cigar."
"So you were awake, too?"
"Of course, George, how else would I know you were smoking?"
"So we were awake, in your dream."
"You should know, you were there, George."
"Say Goodnight, Gracie."
"Goodnight, Gracie, Goodnight, George!"
" I love you, Gracie!"
"In your dreams!"

     I wondered, as I awoke from what some might call a PTSD inspired strange dream, if a simple ‘Anniversary Reaction’ could account for the sense of  Deja-Vu. Oh, yeah, Veterans Day brings a lot back to mind. It’s made even more intense lately, not only by war news (what little real ‘frontline’ factual reporting that gets past censors is severe enough!) but resonant journalism like that of the Viet-Nam Era about today’s Viet-Nam-like errors…{Afghanistan’s Opium-fueled narco-democracy, for example; a word about that in a moment.}
…and a tired old man’s TV exposure to wild propagandistic stuff like ‘V’ on ABC, and C-Span showing the endless depths of side-show insanity at play in D.C. while banksters continue to exceed our wildest fears of being dispossessed, disenfranchised & enslaved by ‘foreign invaders’. Maybe that’s what patchwork-quilted that colorful dream together?
But it wasn’t that at all.
It was a throw-back to the late 60’s, days of LSD doses thrown back as casually as shots of tequela.
It was, strangely, much safer to trust your local chemist then, the chemicals were pure, they were what people said they were, and there were only so many available choices, even in the most lucrative markets. The drug scene then was not so much profit-driven as demand-driven, and "do no harm" was a by-law. "Don’t eat the brown acid, man!"
That said, it’s easy to see, if you examine the local ‘village’ you are in, with the eyes of a "Rip VanWinkle",
with the open mind of the child you were, with the ‘fresh perspective’ gained after being away from home all summer at Camp…even your own room looks different…
 (admit it- you remember it well, imagining pretty accurately what it
would be like when you got this old,

how you would now "tell it like it is,
unafraid!")

"I don’t remember even the wildest party with acid, mescaline, alcohol, abundant pot, way-out music, ‘freelove’ and radicals in the sixties, being anywhere near as downright insane as common everyday life in the city today. These people are well beyond ‘tripping their brains out’ in Washington. In fact an LSD trip would be too clear an enlightening experience for them to survive. It would be like finally facing God, up close & personal after bad-mouthing God all their lives."

It was a little like that, as I had a teeth-grinding insight into just how widespread the psychotropic drug culture [NOT counting  the Cannabis Culture] as well as the big pharma monster has gotten, and just how much more they are affecting everyone, even those who have no prescriptions. What’s the fine again, for not having health insurance?

Then, the sheer numbers started to add up, -the INSIGHT was coming into focus-and the demographics, the hard facts, even the estimates that pass for statistics explained more than I was ready to admit. The numbers of citizens who smoke tobacco, the ones who drink alcohol, the ones who are on doctors’ prescriptions with "side effects", the neighbors & kids on mind, mood, and behavior-altering drugs, with or without combining with other drugs; add the strange new untested class ‘C’ stuff being doled out to Americans, the normal "street" drugs and chemicals & substances, the exotics known only by nicknames or number codes also for the consumer market, and…yes there is more…the truly experimental that makes LSD, by comparison, a mosquito bite. BUT WAIT, there’s more to consider, like the 15 million opiate (like heroin) addicts world-wide, some portion of which is American, and the Monster which has for the first time in the history of humanity, including World War Two, eclipsed the poppy as the biggest threat – for tho WAR cannot be conducted without opium, WAR itself & the conduct  & rationale for war has been transmogrified by METHAMPHETAMINE. In the US alone, over 21 million CIVILIAN meth addicts are about to be joined by heavily PTSD’d & meth addicted ‘former’ soldiers, mercenaries, and expatriot Iraqi, Afghani, and Pak "contractors". Of course, some of these folk also have personality conflicts or character traits that in anotherwise less stressed & demanding society might not have such widespread impacts. BUT it’s obvious that the ATTENDANT CORRUPTION, crime, and political pollution is a FATAL CONDITION for an otherwise "healthy" world culture. The Banksters and the Commie Governments & the Insurance Hucksters and the Drug Cartels are trying to out-do each other with rampant greed, cut-throat tactics, and sociopathic fanaticism to loot the treasury and the people. [They knew long ago a coup had toppled America’s ‘government’, in its place, the ‘shadow’ gov. by the Texas Cabal]
It’s as if the Fire Department had responded to a false alarm to find no real conflagration, but because of what they find, evacuates the neighborhood anyway, so they can ’empty’ the warehouse, maybe not-so-secretly, and ignite a real toxic smokescreen resulting in their own withdrawl, letting the whole neighborhood burn, distracting everyone from the warehouse loss.

 The WARHORSE is burning with thirst, and they want us to buy more firewater.

ADDICTED TO FEAR, the rest of the flock is convinced, conditioned, and confined by misinformation, political and corporate propaganda, as much as by their own immaturity, laziness, selfishness, and lack of bravery or incentive to act or to change.
So it would seem "One in a million" is a very generous ratio for the number of people who, at any given moment are AWAKE, AWARE, LUCID, and NOT SCREWED UP on some form of pharmaceutical.{That would seem to eliminate most of those radio talking heads too many millions of Americans listen to daily.} Don’t forget: too many chemicals, drugs, hormones & other contaminants like MBTE -even perchlorate rocket fuels- have tainted more than half the watersheds & water supplies, drywall and school desks, toys and foods -babyfoods too- all have carried health & behavior threats RIGHT INTO OUR LIVES & HOMES…the AIR in Madrid has detectable LSD! WAR360degreesaroundus. Maybe it’s in airborne chemtrails, but it’s definitely proven IT’S ON THE MONEY! Is it any wonder people all around us seem to be out of touch, at best, and dangerously unpredictable at least, and unpredictably dangerous in too many cases, particularly if meth, alcohol and/or Ambien are involved?
How can anyone realistically think that this nation (or any other) can survive with over 20 million violent crazy meth addicts, much less provide medical care for them? How can we finance that against the cartels own army of financiers who give them everything they can steal for the product? How do we counter the bribes & corruption? And then there are those cold sober liars, thieves, con artists, grifters, snake oil salesmen, and politicians…oh, damn, I repeat myself! How do we dismantle an organization with over 35 million enslaved supporters and enough cash flow to corrupt & influence all the ‘great’ nations including America? With so much cash, they alone can finance bankrupt governments and banksters. The source of all cash, even to the Chinese, is from the drug cartels. [Ugly fact]
It’s not Groundhog Day, but the Nation is SO medicated, so "OUT OF IT", so stupidly and unnecessarily vulnerable, that those who are trying to get things done are seeing the utter impossibility, seeing that Lady Liberty has already been violated, that the Army has been Shanghai’d, no one is ‘minding’ the store, and pirates are at the helm of the ship of state, which not incidentally, has been run upon the rocks while the sirens continue singing.
So how many people do you trust? Is it safe?
PLEASE tell me it was just a nightmare.
I dreamed I woke up in America!  V

The Rescue of Prometheus, or ‘A cure for the American Disease’

                                                 Life at the Center of the Universe

…is more than a Web TV publishing effort based in Tombstone, Arizona. It is also an Idea, that a well chosen moment, a "Carpe Diem" seize the day word or deed, [like that of those at the Gunfight at the OK Corral which is re-enacted here everyday] can
change the course of history, make a difference in many lives. The transitory power of disproportionate influence, of inspiration & opportunity shared, of seeing a vision of one’s mission, is the stuff of great novels and movies, as well as in those ‘viral’ moments on video that, like any Truth, can travel the planet very quickly, like catchy songs or real news. In a dramatic and theatrical place like Tombstone, the voices of residents of "The Gunbelt" along the Border bring the timeless wisdoms of miners, ranchers, and citizens with generations of sensibilities developed by living in the desert and mountains into the atmosphere of clear skies and honest living…enjoying these abundant blessings.

…is also a novel by Frank Lavoie. Its a very well crafted set of short stories which have captured ‘Tales of our times’ from the early 1960’s to recent events. One of the stories "The Rescue of Prometheus" is a true tale about nuclear weapons and the real seat of power, as experienced by a country boy turned-nuclear weapons technician. It’s a very ironic & revealing inside view of our current extremely perilous situation. Please buy the illustrated Tombstone edition, it’s a PDF file on CD. (It ‘reads aloud’! ) You can find it, and more description, on my ebay store under the sellername:  timelessgemminer

MINERS WISDOM   {A Mission Statement & disclaimer}
Opinionated or open-minded, educated or in-experienced, the participants in the historic land & gold ‘Rushes’ of the Old West were sorted by the tasks at hand. Only a few -cast in the ancient mold of patience perserverence, attention to detail- also mastered the physical challenges of exploration & development. Fewer still among those became the skilled farmers & miners of legendary accomplishments, significant discoveries, respectable production and long-lasting social contributions.Their acheivements and voices have been foundation stones in the history of humanity for over a thousand years, while empires rose & fell, and wars were fought over the resources under our feet. The dedicated educated modern professional miners, particular those now participating in the new "Gold Rush" by prospecting developing & operating their own mines, they are aware of HISTORY REPEATING ITSELF. This is one voice aware of speaking through time for others who dug the mountain before me, and for those still coming up the trail…

            The Rescue of Prometheus …a continuation of the TLCU Editorial/Essay "The American Disease":

Its not just Banksters and Congressmen anymore.

 Are we a Nation of Theives, or is the American Disease a World-wide phenomena?
{For the sake of the point to be made, indulge me in leaving out the large magnitude of influences
 by the long-term military-industrial presence in 130 countries on 700 bases.}

The Earth-wide Culture of DISENFRANCHISEMENT engages in obsessive social pracices:
of divorcing the usage of words from their meanings;
of separating Truth from Reality for vanity, for conformity, for appearances, for political correctness, for ‘business’;
of dividing the peace of individuals to sell ‘security’;
of separating the customers from their money, the citizens from their rights, liberty, or control of one’s own body;
of segregations of peoples by political artifices & prevarications (Reservations);
of the isolations of language, race, religion & politics;
of the exclusions of wealth, food, rituals, ceremonies, conventions and inculturated misperceptions;
of inappropriate tolerance of crime, dishonesty, deception & theft;
of building vaults instead of stopping theives;
of governing the ‘represented’ instead of representing the self-governed;
of fielding armies instead of Living Honestly.

Humanity and America, the Nation of Theives, KNOW THIS:
The selfish Prometheus, who had stolen the very fire of the gods
… escaped Not his fate, inspite of his possession of that power.
His fate was to be chained to a rock and having his liver pecked out by an eagle
each night, only to have it restored each day. Doomed to repeat the torture forever,
he begged the gods for mercy. Its a simple metaphore for the nuclear devil, plutonium.

The American Disease that has infected the world,
or the ‘worldly disease that has infected America’s soul,
is illuminated by the dreadful truth that the military activities of nations
and the radioactive debris that already dooms all humanity-
[unexploded hydrogen bombs kill without going off]
makes it obvious that to SAFEGUARD HUMANITY there must now be A CURE applied.

It will not be found on any of the 1900 pages of "healthcare" deception.
It will never be bought with ‘bail-outs’.
It will never be legislated.
It will never come as a miracle no matter how much money is worshipped.

This "prescription" means each patient must think act & live as a Defender of Peace,
dismantling and destroying the warmongering mentality as well as the machinery of death which has personified American racism, greed, theft & genocide (‘might makes right’) for its entire unfortunate & bloody history. There is NO Nationalism in Earth’s history ever justified by war, only by its preservation and promotion of Peace. America has failed criminally.
Our military citizens should and must "invade" America from its scattered and ineffective deployments-must now fight the treasonous coup, the ‘shadow government’, the Pentagon and its’ corporate co-conspirators who,
with the CIA and outside forces, sent [YOU] our forces away on false pretenses so that We, The People, could be suppressed, tyrranized, betrayed and ripped off, our whole treasury plundered-our authorities and police corrupted, made cowards-
without The People’s ability to overthrow the political police state by use of our own militarized citizens,
our own Defenders of the Constitution. It is time for our forces to come home & Liberate America!



To ACT, or to merely re-enact, that is the question.

Fellow Tombstoners….

AS enjoyable as the recent COCHISE TALK.COM forum at the Crystal Palace was…
as idealistic and positive as it seemed, it was still ‘too little too late’ by some opinions after the Web Broadcast had a few days to circulate.
 Too Little and Too Late IF we don’t also include some realistic if negative Truth.
 The Theater that is Tombstone can be a "Hollywood eat your heart out"  experience of unquestionable class and dramatic ‘gravitas’…
and of commercial success IF we still enjoyed a world-wide audience which was NOT aware of the serious crime
in the border zone, in the wide availability of dangerous drugs & the presence of gang & cartel elements…
and IF there were Not such a citizen ostrich with its head down a mine shaft in Denial of this uncomfortable
embarrassing counter-productive circumstance & its logical implied corruptions.
We can rapidly set aside our differences, develop an ‘Off Broadway’ theatrical effort to bring back our many visitors
 from around the world in great numbers and spirits….
BUT we must inspire others to abandon our troubled  & heavily corrupted reputation ONLY by
ACTING ON  The  PRINCIPLES that made our town a legend- not by re-enacting others’ brave stand against organized crime-
BUT by DOING IT OURSELVES, Here, Now.
Of course, no one said it could not be done in high Victorian or period STYLE during HELLDORADO, did they?
{Oops, that sort of applies Nation-wide, doesn’t it!}

Proud To Be American? You Should Be Ashamed

The Market Ticker
June 15, 2009

We have seen the largest looting operation in history perpetrated against The American People.

Over $5 trillion dollars in junk securities were marketed and sold. 
They had a real value of about $2 trillion dollars; the other $3
trillion, roughly, was pure fiction.

The banks created and sold these throughout the world, with the full
knowledge and support of Congress, The Fed, and the banks themselves.

It was pure fraud.

Granting someone a “mortgage” based only on whether they can fog a
mirror is proof positive of malfeasance, unless you disclose this fact
to the buyers of these securities – a fact that was not disclosed until
after the securities blew up.

Lenders, builders and others pressured appraisers to “hit the
numbers” to support these fraudulent deals.  Proof of that is found in
the nearly-10-year-old Appraisers Petition bearing thousands of
appraiser signatures. 

That ratings were a “mistake”, either real or intentional, is a matter of now-known historical fact.

Americans have sat on their butts through all of this, allowed their
401ks and IRAs to be trashed, their supposed “home values” to be pumped
and then destroyed, and their hopes, dreams, employment and house have
all vanished into the ether of fraud.

When this came to light the banks went to Congress, and supported by
The Fed’s intentional draining of liquidity to create an immediate
“crisis”, they got a $700 billion bailout bill passed – one that you,
your children and grandchildren, will have to pay for.

The government then passed another near-trillion-dollar “stimulus”
bill claimed to hold unemployment to 8%.  It did not, because it was
yet another “papering over” of the fraud, but that bill your children
and grandchildren, along with you, will also pay.

Your savings accounts and CDs now yield an effective zero. 

Your credit card interest rates have gone from 11% to 29%, all so
that the banks can keep granting ill-advised credit to people who can’t
pay.  Those who can pay – the rest of you – are being jacked for 30% a
year in interest.

We have seen a few “tea parties” in which a few people showed up and
which were immediately panned by “those in power” as “astroturf.”

Contrast with this.

A few days ago, Iran held an election.  It is alleged that there was
massive fraud.  The current President claimed victory under
less-than-clear circumstances.

The people said “hell no!” in this sort of demonstration:

That’s about 2 million people, out of 70 million population (roughly), or one in thirty-five Iranians in the entire nation who took to the streets to demand justice in a simple vote.

More strikingly, Tehran has a population of roughly 12 million; this means that one in six citizens of the city are standing in that crowd.

This, despite the fact that the government there has been shooting
people, has arrested the opposition party and issued an order to burn
the ballots so there can be no recount.

This, despite the fact that the Iranian population does not enjoy a
Second Amendment, and thus is forced to fight a rogue government with
makeshift molotov cocktails, rocks and clubs, should that rogue
government choose to shoot.

And this was about an election.  A President.  One man.

In our nation we have literally had 1/3rd of our GDP – that is, 1/3rd of everything you worked for last year – stolen by a bunch of fraudsters with the explicit cooperation and assistance of the government.

We should be seeing 10 million Americans literally closing
Washington DC with peaceful protest in the streets – making the
entirety of the downtown inaccessible to vehicles and the normal
conduct of business impossible, were Americans to display the same sort
of anger over an insult vastly more serious than that served upon the Iranian people.

If one in sixAmericans had enough in
America’s big cities, there would be one million people in the Streets
of Chicago – enough to fill Chicago’s Loop from Lake Michigan to
I-90/94 and from The Chicago River to beyond Soldier Field, rendering
the city core impassable.  (Roughly double
the crowd that shows up for the 4th of July Fireworks, to put it in
perspective.  “Greater Chicagoland” has a population of ~7 million)

The same in NY City would result in a crowd of 3.3 million people.

Where are you America?

In America, if the government turns into a goon squad, you have the
constitutionally-protected ability to shoot back.  In Iran you have no
such ability as the Iranian government has never recognized the
unalienable rights as set forth in our Declaration.

So in Iran the population risks mass death to protest.

In America the population risks loss of some income since you’d have to cut work.

The Iranians take to the streets; we take to our couches and have another beer.

Grow a pair of balls America.

The people of Iran are putting us to shame.

PS: Those threats appear not to have been idle either:

IS it any wonder now, why the little communities like our mining camp are being created by unusual gatherings of visionary but practical people, well grounded in resource management and independent country living? Where else today can one be TRULY WEALTHY, distinct from having that problematic unstable paper currency? Besides, given the strangeness of public behaviors lately, and common-sense concerns for contamination, food safety, air-borne & water-borne pharmaceutical influences, effects of high stress & propaganda, etc. who’s to doubt that drug-contaminated paper currency ISN’T making people crazy? Maybe that’s why getting your hands dirty in the garden might be a lot better for all than many imagine. Fresh air for the mind is a good thing too!

LCU recommends, therefor, reading Mother Earth News and such, to get your mind aimed toward that set of small changes in THINKING that will aid your self-guided trail to connect with that set of subjects & circumstances that gives us all inspiration -that vision of Harmonious Convergence- with nature, life, and artful living, as well as with each other. MY SQUASH blossomed today!

U.S. releases secret nuclear list accidentally?

"The International Atomic Energy Agency in
Vienna is a unit of the United Nations whose mandate is to enforce a
global treaty that tries to keep civilian nuclear programs from
engaging in secret military work.

In
recent years, it has sought to gain wide adherence to a set of strict
inspection rules, known formally as the additional protocol. The rules
give the agency powerful new rights to poke its nose beyond known
nuclear sites into factories, storage areas, laboratories, schools, and
anywhere else that a nation might be preparing to flex its nuclear
muscle. The United States signed the agreement in 1998 but only
recently moved forward with its implementation. Thomas B. Cochran, a senior scientist in the nuclear program of the
Natural Resources Defense Council, a private group in Washington that
tracks atomic arsenals, called the document harmless. “It’s a better
listing than anything I’ve seen” of the nation’s civilian nuclear
complex, he said. “But it’s no national-security breach. It confirms
what’s already out there and adds a bit more information.”

To learn more about nuclear weapons, visit Trinity Atomic Web Site at:
http://www.envirolink.org/issues/nuketesting/



"Project TRINITY was the first detonation of a nuclear weapon. The plutonium-fueled implosion

device was detonated on a 100-foot tower at 0530 hours, 16 July 1945. The test, which occurred
on the Alamogordo Bombing Range in south-central New Mexico, had a nuclear yield
equivalent to the energy released by exploding 21 kilotons of TNT. It left a depression in the
desert 2.9 meters deep and 335 meters wide (1: 1,23).
People as far away as Santa Fe and El Paso saw the brilliant light of the detonation. Windows
rattled in the areas immediately surrounding the test site, waking sleeping ranchers and townspeople.
 To dispel any rumors that might compromise the security of this first nuclear test,
the Government announced that an Army munitions dump had exploded. However, immediately
after the bombing of Hiroshima, Japan, on 6 August 1945, the Government revealed to the public
what had actually occurred in the New Mexico desert (1: 33).
Nearly 6 years passed between the detonation of TRINITY at Alamogordo, New Mexico, on 16
July 1945, and the next CONUS nuclear test, ABLE of the RANGER series. The AEC had
considered establishing a continental test site in 1948 after SANDSTONE, as a way to reduce
construction and logistic costs, but rejected the idea after concluding that the physical problems
and domestic political concerns would be too complicated. When the Korean War began in the
summer of 1950, however, the AEC doubted that the Pacific could be used for nuclear weapons
testing because of the possibility of the Korean War expanding throughout the Far East, thus
endangering shipping lanes. On 13 July 1950, the AEC Chairman wrote the Chairman of the
Military Liaison Committee that the possibility of a national emergency required a joint effort by
the AEC and DOD to find a continental test site. The DOD agreed, and the search began for a
suitable site.
The AEC and DOD surveyed six sites within the continental United States before choosing the
Frenchman Flat area of the Las Vegas Bombing and Gunnery Range, renamed the Nellis Air
Force Range in 1956."
In 1949, the Soviet Union detonated its first atomic bomb, providing the impetus for the United
States to proceed with development of a bomb whose energy would come from the fusion, or
joining, of light elements. Such a weapon is also called a thermonuclear, or hydrogen, bomb.
The Atomic Energy Commission received Presidential approval for work in this area in January
1950 after lengthy debate in high defense circles over the feasibility and advisability of such
weapons (7: 21).
As the defense policy evolved in the early 1950s, two particular factors challenged the ability of
U.S. Armed Forces to defend American interests and to protect its allies during limited
hostilities:
·  The commitment of U.S. ground forces to the Korean peninsula
·  The inability of European allies of the U.S. to develop effective military capabilities.
In both cases, the United States experienced difficulties because of limitations in military
manpower, which emphasized the need for a new U.S. policy based not on large standing armies,
but on new technological advances, particularly in nuclear weapons (9: 25).
In 1951, the Chairman of the AEC strongly advocated the development of nuclear weapons for
tactical purposes. "We could," he asserted, "use an atomic bomb today in a tactical way against
enemy troops in the field, against military concentrations near battle areas and against other vital
military targets without risk to our own troops."
TUMBLER-SNAPPER was accordingly
designed both to advance the development of effective nuclear weapons and to train troops in
tactical nuclear warfare (9: 25).

The Shot, as witnessed aboard the various vessels at sea, is not easily described.
Accompanied by a brilliant light, the heat wave was felt immediately at distances of
thirty to thirty-five miles. The tremendous fireball, appearing on the horizon like the sun
when half-risen, quickly expanded after a momentary hover time and appeared to be
approximately a mile in diameter before the cloud-chamber effect and scud clouds
partially obscured it from view. A very large cloud-chamber effect was visible shortly
after the detonation and a tremendous conventional mushroom-shaped cloud soon
appeared, seemingly balanced on a wide dirty stem. Apparently, the dirty stem was due
to the coral particles, debris, and water which were sucked high into the air. Around the
base of the stem, there appeared to be a curtain of water which soon dropped back around
the area where the island of Elugelab [Eluklab] had been.


Except for one PROJECT 57 test, the safety experiments were conducted for the same purpose:
to determine the weapons’ susceptibility to nuclear detonation during accidents in storage and
transportation. High-explosive portions of these devices were fired to simulate accidental
detonation and to determine the potential for such firings to result in a significant nuclear yield.
The test results were used to develop devices that could withstand shock, blast, fire, and
accidents without initiating a nuclear chain reaction and producing a nuclear detonation. The
initial PROJECT 57 test was conducted to spread alpha-emitting material (plutonium) in a
defined area to study the biological effects of alpha radiation and to test monitoring and
decontamination procedures (22: 23,8).

DOD personnel participation during these experiments is difficult to determine. Although most
of the employees of LANL and LLNL were civilians, some DOD personnel also were assigned to
these organizations. In addition, some of the project activities engaged DOD participation.
Eight AFSWC personnel and two participants from the 50th Chemical Service Platoon
performed field work for one of the programs during PROJECT 57, the alpha-dispersion
experiment. Moreover, a DOD effects project was conducted at four of the safety experiments.
Other DOD participation involved cloud-tracking and cloud-sampling missions.

From the earliest days of nuclear research and nuclear weapons testing, scientists were aware of
the potential for peaceful applications of nuclear energy, including nuclear detonations. This
recognition became U.S. policy in the Atomic Energy Act of 1946, which stated that "atomic
energy is capable of application for peaceful as well as military purposes." The opportunity for
American scientists to apply nuclear detonations to peaceful ends was delayed, however, by
several factors, including the greater priority of developing efficient weapons applications,
concern over radioactive contamination, and international suspicion of the intent of the research.
Nevertheless, the AEC ultimately succeeded in initiating the PLOWSHARE Program, which had
been planned in the late 1950s (25: 19,17,18).
The PLOWSHARE detonations were designed to determine nonmilitary applications of nuclear
explosives. The primary potential use envisioned was in large-scale geographic engineering, in
such projects as canal, harbor, and dam construction, the stimulation of oil and gas wells, and
mining. GNOME was planned in part to provide information on the characteristics of an
underground nuclear detonation in a salt medium, while SEDAN was to extend knowledge on
cratering effects from detonations with yields of 100 to 200 kilotons. Considering the peaceful
objectives of PLOWSHARE,
 the AEC took the name of the program from the Bible:
 "And they shall beat their swords into plowshares" (Isaiah 2:4)

The ultimate goal of PLOWSHARE, the peaceful applications of nuclear explosives, was never
realized. The limited test ban treaty, signed on 5 August 1963 in Moscow, ended nuclear testing
in the atmosphere, on land, and underwater, although not underground. Hence, a number of the
PLOWSHARE experiments had to be canceled. Other contributing factors were changes in
national priorities, Government and industry disinterest in the program, public concern over the
health and safety aspects of using nuclear detonations for civil applications, and shortages of
funding (25: 26).

Maybe We Should Take the North Koreans at Their Word

Wednesday 27 May 2009

    Shortly after North Korea exploded its second nuclear device in three years
on Monday morning, it released a statement explaining why. "The republic
has conducted another underground nuclear testing successfully in order to strengthen
our defensive nuclear deterrence."(1) If the Obama Administration
hopes to dissuade Pyongyang from the nuclear course it seems so hell bent on
pursuing, Washington must understand just how adroitly nuclear arms do appear
to serve North Korea’s national security. In other words, perhaps we should
recognize that they mean what they say.

    From the dawn of history until the dawn of the nuclear age, it seemed rather
self-evident that for virtually any state in virtually any strategic situation,
the more military power one could wield relative to one’s adversaries, the more
security one gained. That all changed, however, with Alamogordo and Hiroshima
and Nagasaki. During the Cold War’s long atomic arms race, it slowly dawned
on "nuclear use theorists" – whom one can hardly resist acronyming
as NUTS – that in the nuclear age, security did not necessarily require superiority.
Security required simply an ability to retaliate after an adversary had struck,
to inflict upon that opponent "unacceptable damage" in reply. If an
adversary knew, no matter how much devastation it might inflict in a first strike,
that the chances were good that it would receive massive damage as a consequence
(even far less damage than it had inflicted as long as that damage was "unacceptable"),
then, according to the logic of nuclear deterrence, that adversary would be
dissuaded from striking first. What possible political benefit could outweigh
the cost of the possible obliteration of, oh, a state’s capital city, and the
leaders of that state themselves, and perhaps more than a million lives therein?

    Admittedly, the unassailable logic of this "unacceptable damage"
model of nuclear deterrence – which we might as well call UD – failed to put
the brakes on a spiraling Soviet/American nuclear arms competition that began
almost immediately after the USSR acquired nuclear weapons of its own in 1949.
Instead, a different model of nuclear deterrence emerged, deterrence exercised
by the capability completely to wipe out the opponent’s society, "mutually
assured destruction," which soon came to be known to all as MAD. There
were other scenarios of aggression – nuclear attacks on an adversary’s nuclear
weapons, nuclear or conventional attacks on an adversary’s closest allies (in
Western and Eastern Europe) – that nuclear weapons were supposed to deter as
well. However, the Big Job of nuclear weapons was to dissuade the other side
from using their nuclear weapons against one’s own cities and society, by threatening
to deliver massive nuclear devastation on the opponent’s cities and society
in reply. "The Department of Defense," said an Ohio congressman in
the early 1960s, with some exasperation, "has become the Department of
Retaliation."(2)

    Nevertheless, those who engaged in an effort to slow the arms race often employed
the logic of UD in their attempts to do so. "Our twenty thousandth bomb,"
said Robert Oppenheimer, who directed the Manhattan Project that built the world’s
first atomic weapons, as early as 1953, "will not in any deep strategic
sense offset their two thousandth."(3) "Deterrence does not depend
on superiority," said the great strategist Bernard Brodie in 1965.(4) "There
is no foreign policy objective today that is so threatened," said retired
admiral and former CIA director Stansfield Turner in 1998, "that we would
É accept the risk of receiving just one nuclear detonation in retaliation."(5)

    Consider how directly the logic of UD applies to the contemporary international
environment, to the twin nuclear challenges that have dominated the headlines
during most of the past decade, and to the most immediate nuclear proliferation
issues now confronting the Obama Administration. Because the most persuasive
explanation for the nuclear quests on which both Iran and North Korea have embarked
is, indeed, the notion that "deterrence does not depend on superiority."
Deterrence depends only an ability to strike back. Iran and North Korea appear
to be seeking small nuclear arsenals in order to deter potential adversaries
from launching an attack upon them – by threatening them with unacceptable damage
in retaliation.

    Neither North Korea nor Iran could hope to defeat its most powerful potential
adversary – the United States – in any kind of direct military confrontation.
They cannot repel an actual attack upon them. They cannot shoot American planes
and missiles out of the sky. Indeed, no state can.

    However, what these countries can aspire to do is to dissuade the American
leviathan from launching such an attack. How? By developing the capability to
instantly vaporize an American military base or three in Iraq or Qatar or South
Korea or Japan, or an entire U.S. aircraft carrier battle group in the Persian
Gulf or the Sea of Japan, or even an American city on one coast or the other.
And by making it implicitly clear that they would respond to any kind of assault
by employing that capability immediately, before it’s too late, following the
venerable maxim: "Use them or lose them." The obliteration of an entire
American military base, or an entire American naval formation, or an entire
American city, would clearly seem to qualify as "unacceptable damage"
for the United States.

    Moreover, to deter an American attack, Iran and North Korea do not need thousands
of nuclear warheads. They just need a couple of dozen, well hidden and well
protected. American military planners might be almost certain that they could
take out all the nuclear weapons in these countries in some kind of a dramatic
lightning "surgical strike." However, with nuclear weapons, "almost"
is not good enough. Even the barest possibility that such a strike would fail,
and that just one or two nuclear weapons would make it into the air, detonate
over targets, and result in massive "unacceptable damage" for the
United States, would in virtually any conceivable circumstance serve to dissuade
Washington from undertaking such a strike.

    In addition, it is crucial to recognize that Iran and North Korea would not
intend for their nascent nuclear arsenals to deter only nuclear attacks upon
them. If the entire nuclear arsenal of the United States disappeared tomorrow
morning, but America’s conventional military superiority remained, it still
would be the case that the only possible military asset that these states could
acquire, to effectively deter an American military assault, would be the nuclear
asset.

    The "Korean Committee for Solidarity with World Peoples," a mouthpiece
for the North Korean government, captured Pyongyang’s logic quite plainly just
weeks after the American invasion of Iraq in March 2003. "The Iraqi war
taught the lesson that É the security of the nation can be protected
only when a country has a physical deterrent force É"(6) Similarly,
a few weeks earlier, just before the Iraq invasion began, a North Korean general
was asked to defend his country’s nuclear weapons program, and with refreshing
candor replied, "We see what you are getting ready to do with Iraq. And
you are not going to do it to us."(7)

    It really is quite a remarkable development. North Korea today is one of the
most desperate countries in the world. Most of its citizens are either languishing
in gulags or chronically starving. And yet – in contrast to all the debate that
has taken place in recent years about whether the United States and/or Israel
ought to launch a preemptive strike on Iran – no one seems to be proposing any
kind of military strike on North Korea. Why not? Because of the mere possibility
that North Korea could impose unacceptable damage upon us in reply.

    Perhaps the most remarkable thing about UD is that it seems every bit as effective
as MAD. North Korea today possesses no more than a handful of nuclear warheads,
and maintains nothing like a "mutual" nuclear balance with the United
States. In addition, the retaliation that North Korea can threaten cannot promise
anything like a complete "assured destruction." To vaporize an American
carrier group in the Sea of Japan, or a vast American military base in South
Korea or Japan, or even an American city, would not be at all the same thing
as the "destruction" of the entire American nation – as the USSR was
able to threaten under MAD.

    And yet, MAD and UD, it seems, exercise deterrence in precisely the same way.
Astonishingly, it seems that Washington finds itself every bit as thoroughly
deterred by a North Korea with probably fewer than 10 nuclear weapons as it
did by a Soviet Union with 10,000. Although UD hardly contains the rich acronymphomaniacal
irony wrought by MAD, it appears that both North Korea and Iran intend now to
base their national security strategies solidly upon it.

    There is very little reason to suppose that other states will not soon follow
their lead.

    President Obama, of course, to his great credit, has not only made a nuclear
weapon-free Iran and North Korea one of his central foreign policy priorities,
he has begun to chart a course toward a nuclear weapon-free world. In a groundbreaking
speech before a huge outdoor rally in Prague on April 5th, he said, "Today,
I state clearly and with conviction America’s commitment to seek the peace and
security of a world without nuclear weapons." (Unfortunately, he followed
that with the statement that nuclear weapons abolition would not "be achieved
quickly, perhaps not in my lifetime," suggesting that neither he nor the
nuclear policy officials in his administration fully appreciate the magnitude
and immediacy of the nuclear peril. Do they really think the human race can
retain nuclear weapons for another half century or so, yet manage to dodge the
bullet of nuclear accident, or nuclear terror, or a nuclear crisis spinning
out of control every single time?)

    The one thing we can probably say for sure about the prospects for universal
nuclear disarmament is that no state will agree either to abjure or to dismantle
nuclear weapons unless it believes that such a course is the best course for
its own national security. To persuade states like North Korea and Iran to climb
aboard the train to abolition would probably require simultaneous initiatives
on three parallel tracks. One track would deliver foreign and defense policies
that assure weaker states that we do not intend to attack them, that just as
we expect them to abide by the world rule of law they can expect the same from
us, that the weak need not cower in fear before the strong. Another track would
deliver diplomatic overtures that convince weaker states that on balance, overall,
their national security will better be served in a world where no one possesses
nuclear weapons, rather than in a world where they do-but so too do many others.
And another track still would deliver nuclear weapons policies that directly
address the long-simmering resentments around the world about the long-standing
nuclear double standard, that directly acknowledge our legacy of nuclear hypocrisy,
and that directly connect nuclear non-proliferation to nuclear disarmament.

    The power decisively to adjust all those variables, of course, does not reside
in Pyongyang or Tehran. It resides instead in Washington.

Let us not forget that the U.S. Air Force used conventional Napalm
bombs to burn every city in North Korea to the ground (some of them
more than once) during the "Forgotten War," 1950 to 1953. Pyongyang
itself was destroyed twice. The estimate of the number of civilians who
perished in the firestorms ranges between 2 and 4 million. Only
President Truman’s opposition kept General MacArthur from using nuclear
weapons in North Korea, along the Chinese border.

The Military-Cartel Coup continues, America falls faster into armed rebellions

Life at the Center of the Universe is almost TOO interesting lately.

The local scene in Tombstone has gone well beyond the WTF? stage, and last nights diversion tactic by the Mayor

& Historical Commission was a hysterical video sideshow (Ch. 9 10 PM News) that bluntly avoided

[intended to distract] from the Rest of the Story" ….the  close-to-gunfighting  hostility and revolting atmosphere

-against the threats and attacks perpetrated or ‘helped along’ by the LIHOP city management,

{including an attempted murder many suspect was a conspired HIT set up by the Mayor and his Gang.}

-against the plainly exploitational abuse of power, violations of rights, and out & out arrogant, in-your-face-what-you-gonna-do-about-it CORRUPTION.{Saloons involved}.

Its not enough to suggest a recall, or other form of removals -we do not have the luxury of such conventions,

of such a prolonged time-consuming task, even though we prefer to preserve DUE PROCESS, there is a time

when citizens MUST recognize the ugly reality before us: That these officials, these FELONS ARE DAILY,

CONTINUOUSLY IN THE COMMISSION OF A FELONY and AS SUCH,

are subject to the use of deadly force by any citizen(s) who is/are (a) witness to stop the felony.

Why are we saying we do not have time to waste?

Because the CARTEL transports White Death though the Ports of Entry, using large bribes, FREQUENTLY

and it is a FACT that these trucks had to come through HERE to have been able to deliver across the nation.

How do they go through town after town near the border,"checkpoint" after ‘checkpoint’? Once they get as far as BENSON, many people, {besides that Border Patrol guy who hangs out at the bridge letting everything go by, go by…} presume the trucks have already been checked… but they bring murder, theft, slavery, rape, violence, corruption, and torture with them…

they end up everywhere across the land and the BLOOD IS ON THE TOMBSTONE CITY COUNCIL’S HANDS,

along with Mayor Escapule, Marshal Talvy, and even the City Clerk & the water boys!

YOU HAVE NEVER INTERCEPTED ONE major load of anything dangerous or expensive

coming through TOMBSTONE, have you? Pot does NOT count. YOU ARE GUILTY of Failing to Safeguard the village

and COMMITTING TREASON on the towns thusly victimized, attacked, damaged, and reduced by the

damned meth, coke, heroin, etc. that YOU TOOK BRIBES TO LET THROUGH, to be too ‘busy’ to see, or catch,

while engaged in administrative shenanigans ‘policing’ the historic/theatrical district.

Thats YOU,  TALVY. Car wash rendezvous ring a bell? Hey, J.M.SMITH, got any ‘strawberrymeth’ left over?

While you HARRASSED SIX GUN CITY in a CLEARLY ILLEGAL and serious violation of the Constitution

and ALL OUR RIGHTS, you were DERELICT in your DUTY, signaled your criminal intentions and self-serving

agenda, and gave many JUST CAUSE to seek REDRESS, revenge, and retribution, which many know is merely

responsible righteous indignation at the least, and an understandable expression of anger & hatred.

Of course, if you thought citizens might actually effect JUSTICE, think about this…even our neighbor-soldiers

may not be able to come to our defense. DHS has plans to disarm you AND our sons & daughters in uniform?

Oh, man, its another WTF moment!

Oh, well, there’s always that Civil War Sword for removing

mindlessness and replacing it with relatively harmless headlessness.

Military Personnel Ordered To Comply With Illegal Private Firearms Registration

Posted By admin On May 19, 2009 @ 2:17 pm In Featured Stories | 20 Comments

Paul Joseph Watson
Prison Planet.com
Tuesday, May 19, 2009

An alarming document sent to us by an Infantryman based out of Fort
Campbell Kentucky shows that active duty military

personnel are being
secretly ordered to submit information to their Chain of Command on how
many firearms they own privately, their location, as well of details of
any Concealed Carry permits.

Though the order was apparently rescinded, the fact that active duty
soldiers are being asked to submit every detail of their private
firearm collection is a telltale sign that the second amendment is in
dire straights.

The directive orders active duty personnel to report details of all
privately-owned firearms to their Chain of Command, as well as future
firearms purchases.

The memorandum was sent to us by a concerned 11B Infantryman based
at Fort Campbell. In his e mail, the man expresses his shock at being
ordered to comply with what amounts to a registration of
privately-owned firearms.

“I live off post, with my firearms (which I don’t bring on post for
any reason). A very frightening thing happened at work yesterday,” he
writes. “I was ordered to fill out a list containing my firearm
information. This included make, model, caliber, and serial number of
all firearms I currently posses. In addition, I was also required to
list registration information, location of all weapons individually,
and information regarding any CCW permits I posses.”

The man tried to ascertain why such information was being demanded
by speaking to his First Sergeant but was told,

“Just put your info on
the form.”

“I don’t know how high this goes, but I am hearing that this is
going on in other units at Fort Campbell as well,” writes the
Infantryman. “It just seems a little coincidental to me that within 90
days: the most anti-firearm President in history is inaugurated, some
of the nastiest anti-firearm laws are put on the table in Washington,
and then the Army comes around wanting what amounts to a registration
on all firearms, even if they are off post, and doesn’t provide any
reason or purpose as to why.”

The man said he had been at Fort Campbell for almost 8 years and had never encountered anything like this directive before.

“I fear something really nasty is blowing in the wind here,” he warns.

According to a World Net Daily article, the order was stopped when it was discovered the commander was not “acting within his authority.”

However, the story emphasizes how gargantuan threats to the second
amendment are not being reported by the mainstream media nor by big gun
groups like the NRA.

Zadari: Osama was an “Operator” for the United States

Posted By admin On May 10, 2009 @ 3:30 pm In Featured Stories | 125 Comments

Infowars
May 10, 2009

In the interview here, NBC’s David Gregory completely ignores
Pakistan president Asif Ali Zadari when he declares that Osama bin
Laden was an “operator” for the United States. Gregory wants to know if
Zadari believes Osama is alive. He wants to know why Pakistan has not
gone after Bin Laden.

Before “everything changed” on September 11, 2001, the corporate
media published truthful stories about Osama bin Laden and his
relationship with the CIA. “As his unclassified CIA biography states,
bin Laden left Saudi Arabia to fight the Soviet army in Afghanistan
after Moscow’s invasion in 1979. By 1984, he was running a front
organization known as Maktab al-Khidamar — the MAK — which funneled
money, arms and fighters from the outside world into the Afghan war,” Michael Moran
wrote for MSNBC on August 24, 1998. “What the CIA bio conveniently
fails to specify (in its unclassified form, at least) is that the MAK
was nurtured by Pakistan’s state security services, the Inter-Services
Intelligence agency, or ISI, the CIA’s primary conduit for conducting
the covert war against Moscow’s occupation.”

  • A d v e r t i s e m e n t

The
CIA’s intimate relationship with Osama bin Laden came to light during a
the trial of Mohamed Rashed Daoud al-’Owhali and Khalfan Khamis Mohamed
for the 1998 bombings of two American Embassies in Africa. Giles Foden wrote about the “deep and insidious connection” between Osama bin Laden and the CIA on September 13, 2001, for the Guardian.

“FBI investigators examining the embassy bombing sites in Nairobi
and Dar es Salaam discovered that evidence led to military explosives
from the US Army, and that these explosives had been delivered three
years earlier to Afghan Arabs, the infamous international volunteer
brigades involved side by side with bin Laden during the Afghan war
against the Red Army,” Alexandra Richard wrote for Le Figaro on October 11, 2001.

In the same article Richard reports that a CIA agent met with Osama
bin Laden at the American Hospital in Dubai in July, 2001, where the
terrorist underwent surgery. “While he was hospitalized, bin Laden
received visits from many members of his family as well as prominent
Saudis and Emiratis. During the hospital stay, the local CIA agent,
known to many in Dubai, was seen taking the main elevator of the
hospital to go to bin Laden’s hospital room.”

Not only did the CIA and its ISI partner create MAK and ultimately
what the corporate media would call al-Qaeda, they also created the
Taliban, although you won’t read that in the New York Times. The ISI
organized and the United States, Britain, and the Saudis funded the
madrassas (religious schools) that nurtured the fanatical Wahhabi
Taliban. “They were literally the orphans of war [a war orchestrated by
Zbigniew Brzezinski against the Soviets], the rootless and restless,
the jobless and the economically deprived with little self-knowledge.
They admired war because it was the only occupation they could possibly
adapt to. Their simple belief in a messianic, puritan Islam which had
been drummed into them by simple village mullahs was the only prop they
could hold on to and which gave their lives some meaning,” writes Phil Gasper.

NBC’s David Gregory might want to ask the CIA or maybe Robert Gates
about the whereabouts of Osama bin Laden (the current secretary of
defense basically ran the Osama operation through Pakistan’s ISI back
in the day when he was Deputy Assistant to the President for National
Security Affairs and then CIA director under Bush Senior).

Gregory and NBC are merely setting the stage for Obama’s increased
meddling in Pakistan. Part of that effort is to make Asif Ali Zadari
look like he is hiding Osama bin Laden and protecting the perennial
bogeyman, al-Qaeda.

Zadari, however, knows the truth and is not afraid to speak it on
American television: Osama bin Laden was an “operative” for the United
States.

Secret Bush-Clinton-Federal Reserve Pakistani Accounts Revealed

Posted By admin On May 11, 2009 @ 11:54 am In War on Terror | 18 Comments

Tom Heneghan
May 11, 2009

UNITED STATES of America  –  It can now be reported that the recent
resignation of former New York Federal Reserve Bank of New York
Chairman, Stephen Frieidman, signals an expanding investigation of New
York Attorny General Andrew Cuomo, who is not only focused on the
massive New York state financial derivative Ponzi Scheme, but is now
centered on money laundry, and possible funding of alleged terrorists
in Pakistan.

Note: Cuomo was recently in a state of shock when he looked at new
evidence linking Citibank, J. P. Morgan, Goldman Sachs and AIG, to not
only a terrorist money laundry in Pakistan, but to evidence tying all
of these aforementioned brokerage firms and the Federal Reserve itself
to PRE 9/11 knowledge, which allowed them to profit with put options
and short positions placed before 9/11. 

This allowed these criminal brokerage firms to benefit from the death of near 3,000 in New York City.

Reference: Friedman, who still sits on the Board of Goldman Sachs,
has been recently cooperating with the New York Attorney General, but
as you will find out in the rest of this briefing, Friedman has been
playing both sides against the middle and is now involved in espionage
double-cross.

Sources close to Defense Intelligence and the National Security
Division of the U.S. Department of Justice, as well as European
INTERPOL, have actually fingered Friedman as the bagman for the
Bush-Clinton Crime Family Syndicate involving illegal wire
transfers of TRILLIONS of dollars of STOLEN U.S. Treasury funds that
were laundred through Goldman Sachs brokerage firm in New York City,
the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, the Israel Discount Bank and the
Federal Reserve itself to the Israeli Bank Leumi in Tel Aviv onto secret U.S. national security accounts in Pakistan.
Note: Assisting Friedman in looting the U.S. Treasury (the back end of
the toxic derivatives) is a Pakistani national who is a joint
U.S.-Pakistan CIA Intelligence officer with the initials " K.H. "

KH, who was presumed dead by many in the intelligence
community, including Stephen Friedman, is now cooperating with European
INTERPOL.

Note: Early Saturday morning on May 9, 2009, foreign born alleged President Barack Obama ordered a missile attack near the Pakistan-Afghanistan border, which was was an alleged attack against so-called Al Qaeda terrorists.

We can now report that it was daddy Bush and his little bitch, Bill
Clinton, that ordered Obama to launch the attack given reports that the
whistleblower KH was in the vicinity.

Clearly, folks, this was not an attack on terrorists but an assassination attempt on KH that failed.

KH has fingered Stephen Friedman, former Federal Reserve Chairman
Alan Greenspan, along with former President George Herbert Walker Bush,
former Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf in setting up these secret
CIA proprietary accounts in Pakistan tied to none other than the late
alleged 9/11 terrorist aka patsy CIA employee Tim Osman aka Osama bin
Laden.

Note: Bin Laden, who died of kidney failure in December of 2001 and
was a cosignator on these accounts, is claimed to still be alive based
on the U.S. media’s big lie that he is still wandering the hills of
Afghanistan.

Believe this, folks, he is dead as a door nail!

Should bin Laden’s death be reported, the IRS would have immediate access to these secret accounts that now have rotating access codes aka electronic serial combinations based on biblical chapters and verses.

The Pakistan money laundry has been a piggy bank for the Bush-Clinton Crime Family Syndicate since the 9/11 attack on America.

These accounts have now been frozen by the World Court and the
International Monetary Fund (IMF) given the cooperation of the now
whistleblower KH in handing over the account numbers and access codes
aka the biblical chapters and verses that have now prevented daddy
Bush, Bill and Hillary Clinton, along with former Federal Reserve
Chairman Alan Greenspan from getting into these accounts.

Reference: It has been reported that the Pakistani government
refused Barbara Bush, wife of former President George Herbert Walker
Bush, and Andrea Mitchell, wife of former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan
Greenspan, and Chelsea Clinton, daughter of former President and daddy
Bush’s little bitch, Bill Clinton, entry into Pakistan.

  • A d v e r t i s e m e n t

Reference:
It was Chelsea Clinton that used funds from a Goldman Sachs hedge fund
to arrange the BRIBING of New York Governor David Paterson in order to
keep Caroline Kennedy from being appointed the next New York Democratic
U.S. Senator.

It is clear now that former Federal Reserve Bank of New York Chairman, Stephen Friedman, is caught in a double cross.

Friedman had been cooperating with the New York state investigation
while at the same time keeping secret the existence of these secret
Bush-Clinton Crime Family Syndicate’s accounts in Pakistan, which now
not only have a possibly link to the Bernard Madoff Ponzi Scheme but to
the funding of alleged worldwide Al Qaeda terrorists as well as the 9/11 attack itself.

He clearly thought that KH had died – well he is clearly alive and kicking, folks.

P.S. At this hour the Obama Administration is ignoring a French
Intelligence warning of a possible FALSE FLAG terrorist attack that
would be staged in New York City around the Broad Street area aka the
location of the Goldman Sachs brokerage firm.

We can now divulge that there are tape recorded conversations
involving current White House Chief of Staff and former head of the
North American Israeli Mossad, Rahm Emanuel, and current Israeli Prime
Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, concerning the existence of certain files,
documents and computer downloads currently held at Goldman Sachs that
involve former Federal Reserve Bank of New York, Chairman Stephen
Friedman, the Bernard Madoff Ponzi Scheme and the secret money laundry
from the U.S. to Israeli to Pakistan.

French Intelligence sources have, once again, identified certain
alleged Al Qaeda types that are linked to the noted 9/11 Israeli
Mossad’s Urban Moving Systems espionage group, that is still operating
in New Jersey, and have been recently photographed outside the New York
financial district.

P.P.S. At this hour there is NO Justice Department as the Obama
Administration continues to allow Bush Clinton Crime Family Syndicate
rule over the United States.

The bought and paid for U.S. Congress, along with the
Department of Homeland Security (DHS), continue to run rampant in
attempts to attack the American People.

For example, DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano, who has lunch on
occasion with former DHS Secretary Michael Chertoff, still has a
terrorist watch list that includes enemies of Karl Rove aka former
Democratic Alabama Governor Don Siegelman.

Napolitano and Chertoff have also put together a list called the
"Domestic Extremist Lexicon", which classifies individuals as
terrorists if they do not agree with corporate, fascist media versions
of events.

Not to be left out, radical feminista and tribalist Congresswoman
Linda Sanchez (D-CA), is sponsoring legislation (H.R. 1966), which
would allow the government to censor the internet if it was determined
that internet bloggers brought "emotional distress" to alleged
individuals that were being criticized.

Ms. Sanchez is also working on legislation, which would allow the
2nd Amendment rights of the American People to be infringed on should a
DHS oversight panel decide that an individual American citizen might be
a terrorist and therefore be unable to buy a firearm.

Clearly, according to Ms. Sanchez, if you are critical of Ms. Sanchez you are therefore a "terrorist".

Ms. Sanchez, who favors the illegal invasion of the United States by
illegal aliens from Mexico is the REAL terrorist and a THREAT to our
U.S. Constitution.

Call the DHS and tell them you have identified a terrorist in our Congress:

     Operator Number: 202-282-8000

     Comment Line: 202-282-8495 

Final note: I want to make it clear to all of our loyal readers that
the Bush-Clinton-Federal Reserve Crime Syndicate is desperate.

We, the American People, have uncovered the truth about their
TREASONOUS activities.  So, their next step aka the Swine Flu will be
to attack us.

Daddy Bush and his little bitch, Bill Clinton, are sociopaths. They
are loosing their money and their power and the U.S. Military has told
foreign born alleged President Obama that they will not tolerate him
enabling any more of this TREASON.

Again, folks, prepare for revolutionary mode.  The best defense is a great offense.

We will do whatever is necessary to save our U.S. Constitution, our
beloved Republic, our freedoms and our American way of life and remove
these TRAITORS from American soil.

We announce to the criminal government and its criminal corporate media enablers:  YOU ARE TOO CORRUPT TO CONTINUE!

We, the American People, who are well armed, will be victorious!

* * *  REMEMBER  * * *

The orders of the day for ALL patriots as we continue to identify the
enemies of the American Republic and the American Revolution in the
21st Century and eradicate them:

Oath Keepers: Orders We Will NOT Obey
http://oath-keepers.blogspot.com/2009/03/oath-keepers-declaration-of-orders-we.html

When it comes to the enemies of the American Republic
and the American Revolution in the 21st century, we dedicate ourselves
to the 2nd American Revolution and making these enemies a memory.

We must remove them from American soil, and DO IT NOW!

Overlord at Yorktown remains relentless and victorious.

At this hour, we live free or die as Lafayette remains at Brandywine
and Albert Gore Jr. remains the year 2000 duly eletected,
non-inaugurated,  REAL natural born  President of the United States.

Americans are terrorists if they own a bible, a pocket Constitution or guns, and still believe in Life, Liberty and Freedom

Obama and ACORN GPS Marking EVERY Front Door in America?

 By JB Williams  Wednesday, April 29, 2009

Republican Senator Judd Gregg was Obama’s first choice for the
Secretary of Commerce post, and Gregg was actually considering joining
the Obama team, until he found out that control of the US Census was
being stripped from the Commerce Department and placed under the direct
control of White House Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel.

Then, the same week that Americans learned that they were “domestic
terrorists”—at least according to Obama’s new DHS (Department of
Homeland Security),—if they own a bible, a pocket Constitution or guns,
and still believe in Life, Liberty and Freedom, – they also learned
that Obama’s Census Bureau had hired thousands of new temporary
employees, equipped each with a handheld GPS computer and sent them out
to mark GPS coordinates for every residential front door in America.

Oddly, it was this same period that news was breaking of an
international flu pandemic, suspected of being a weaponized strain of
the virus never before seen, – and that Obama’s team still sees no need
to close the US-Mexican border, despite the cross continental spread of
a deadly illness now claiming American lives.

Now, if any one of these events happened alone, one might not get
too excited. But when a string of such events happen all at once, one
begins to question the string of freedom and life threatening
coincidences…

I can’t resist the urge to question the authority and purpose behind
such a BIG BROTHER initiative, when the official Census itself is not
due to be taken until 2010…

No imagination is required to think up a whole laundry list of evil
that could be done with a nationwide GPS grid of coordinate’s markers
painted on every private home across the country. But I was having
trouble thinking up one good reason for it, even one legitimate use
that would justify what must be a very expensive undertaking.

According to one of the Census workers, who spoke with me on
condition of anonymity, they must GPS mark the coordinates “within 40
ft of every front door” in America and they are supposed to complete
that mission nation wide, within 90 days, by the end of July 2009.

The workers were not told why they were GPS marking every front
door. But a supervisor is sent out to follow them door-to-door, to make
certain that no door is left unmarked. Every door will be marked by one
employee, and then checked by a follow-up supervisor.

So, I had to ask, why?

Why does the Obama administration need or want the latitude and
longitude coordinates for every home in America? Why the rush to GPS
paint every home in the next 90 days? Why must the marker be within 40
ft of every front door? For what possible purpose does the Fed need GPS
coordinates for every home, and under what authority do they have the
right? Census workers, whom I asked, had the same holy-crap look on
their faces that I had by then…

ACORN
signed on as a national partner with the U.S. Census Bureau in February
2009 to assist with the recruitment of the 1.4 million temporary
workers needed to go door-to-door to count every person in the United
States — currently believed to be more than 306 million people. But the
count doesn’t take place until 2010… This is April 2009.

Obama’s interest in an ACORN controlled 2010 Census, for the purpose
of redistricting to the advantage of Democrats before the 2010 mid-term
elections, comes as NO shock from a regime known for their heavy handed
Rules for Radicals political strategies. But what does this have to do with GPS marking every home in the country?

The 2% of Americans, who have served military duty at some point in
life, are very familiar with the most common use of GPS target
painting. The other 98% of Americans might want to pick up a book on
the subject, such as The Precision Revolution: GPS and the Future of Aerial Warfare

Their Authority?

RightSoup.com has just about the only online report available on the
matter, and they report, “Why does the government (and ACORN) need to
have the GPS coordinates of your FRONT DOOR? Your house is probably on
Google Maps already. But the front door? Sounds like a jackboot
convenience to me. This is a developing story, and several reports of
those who have already been visited by the GPS squad can be found in this forum thread.”

If you challenge Census Bureau employees about the GPS marking of your
private residence, you will be handed a preprinted explanation
referring you to Sec. 223, Title 13, U.S. Code, Chapter 7, Subtitle 2,
which explains the penalties for refusing to provide names and
statistics of occupants when asked for by a census taker. This only
applies when they are taking a census, (which will not be taken until
next year), and the penalty for refusing to answer questions for a
census is up to a $500 fine.

However, since the actual Census is not due to be taken until 2010,
nobody is asking for any information today. They are only GPS marking
your front door today, and Sec. 223, Title 13, U.S. Code, Chapter 7, Subtitle 2 provides the Fed NO authority to GPS paint your front door.

Best I can tell, the Fed has NO authority whatsoever, to paint the
front door of every private residence in America. Still, that is
exactly what they are doing. Now, the trillion dollar question is, why?

A State of Emergency

From Wikipedia – The Posse Comitatus Act is a United States federal law (18 U.S.C. § 1385)
passed on June 16, 1878 after the end of Reconstruction, with the
intention of substantially limiting the powers of the federal
government to use the military for law enforcement. The Act prohibits
most members of the federal uniformed services from exercising
nominally state law enforcement, police, or peace officer powers that
maintain “law and order” on non-federal property (such as states and
their counties and municipal divisions) within the United States.

In short, the statute generally prohibits federal military personnel
and units of the National Guard operating under federal authority, from
acting in a law enforcement capacity within the United States.

As members of the military are sworn to protect and defend the
Constitution and the American people against all enemies, both foreign
and domestic, a federal order to do the exact opposite, and take aim at
American citizens, would be a clear violation of the US Constitution
and the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878, unless…

US Military personnel are trained to follow orders. But they are
also obligated to refuse any order deemed “unlawful.” In order to make
such an order appear “lawful,” the federal government would first have
to declare a national “state of emergency,” such as in the case of an
international pandemic, which can be demonstrated to threaten the
health and well-being of American citizens.

Following a state of emergency declaration, a federal order for
Martial Law would be expected, to allegedly provide law enforcement and
security for citizens. This type of scenario can be followed by a
presidential order to quarantine, disarm and contain American citizens
in the name of national security, all of it, having the appearance of
being “lawful.”

Is this what is happening?

Connecting the Dots

Alone, individual events look concerning, but not conspiratorial.
What about when you place the pieces of the puzzle together and take a
look at the entire picture developing?

Under this “theory,” how does the GPS marking of every private residence in the nation fit into the picture?

I wish I knew… but I don’t!

What I do know is this… Coincidences of this number and magnitude
don’t happen. They certainly do not happen all at the same time, within
hours or days of each other, out of the wild blue tin-foil hat heaven…

I also know that people had better start asking the right people the
right questions and demanding answers fast. Begin with asking the
mainstream press why there has been no public notification of the
federal governments GPS marking your front door?

Then, I suggest contacting your local Census Bureau office
immediately, and demanding an explanation as well as advice as to what
law gives them the right to GPS paint every front door in America?

I’d also recommend sending a copy of this column to your state and
federal representative, demanding that they put a stop to it or explain
why it’s necessary, and what law gives them the right?

Unfortunately, we live in a moment of history when real events are
much stranger than nutty conspiracy theories. The people have every
right to know what is happening. But unless you demand to know,
nobody’s talking!

Bill Clinton sold US nuclear technology to Red China for a mere
$300,000 in campaign contributions. The event landed Chinese bagman
Johnny Chung in prison, but put Hillary Clinton in the US Senate, and
now at the helm of the US State Department.

Highly secured government servers are hacked daily. Soon, hackers
will be able to grab a nation wide GPS grid map, marking the front door
of every home in America.

How much is a GPS grid of every American household worth to the enemies
of America, both foreign and domestic? I’d estimate, PRICELESS!

There is a foul odor resonating from the current regime in
Washington DC and most Americans can smell it. Can most Americans
gather the strength to do something about it?
