Chile and Japan have reported massive earthquakes at 8.8 and 7.0 Magnitudes, respectively in the last 24 hours. http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/recenteqsww/Quakes/quakes_big.php  

We pondered the cause and connection of the recent devastating Haiti earthquake between the AREBICO observatory and array in nearby Puerto Rico http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arecibo_Observatory  and what HAARP and EISCAT were doing in this post at http://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2010/01/14/haiti-earthquake-conspiracy-haarp-eiscat/.  

Chile and Japan are both home to huge observatories.  We wonder again if science gone has gone mad -created an accident by intention or otherwise, if governments are manipulating political influence, or if it is the earth’s tectonics naturally shifting that have caused two incredible large earthquakes.  

  

Chile is home to the Llano de Chajnantor Observatory including the Atacama Large Millimeter Array- ALMA.  It is the largest and most sensitive instrument in the world at millimeter and submillimeter wavelengths.   Other antennas there include:   

CBI microwave
ASTE submillimeter
APEX submillimeter
NANTEN2 millimeter-submillimeter
ACT microwave
QUIET microwave
TAO optical-infrared
ALMA millimeter-submillimeter

ALMA is an international partnership of Europe, North America and East Asia, and is the largest astronomical project in existence.  ALMA is a fusion of ideas, with its roots in three astronomical projects: the Millimeter Array (MMA) of the United States, the Large Southern Array (LSA) of Europe, and the Large Millimeter Array (LMA) of Japan. according to WIKI.  

Could any of these have the potential to create some sort of wave generation power to create an earthquake?  

On the other side of the world is Japan’s National Astronomical Observatory Japan who issued this press release recently:  

Three antennas working in unison open new bright year for revolutionary observatory.  

The Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) has passed a key milestone crucial for the high-quality images that will be the trademark of this revolutionary new tool for astronomy. Astronomers and engineers have, for the first time, successfully linked three of the observatory’s antennas at the 5000-meter elevation observing site in northern Chile. Having three antennas observing in unison provides the missing link to correct errors that arise when only two antennas are used, thus paving the way for precise images of the cool Universe at unprecedented resolution. http://www.nao.ac.jp/E/index.html  

While not expected to be completely operational until 2012, this January only weeks before the Haiti quake and now two huge quakes in Chile and Japan- three antennas have gone online.  Are they sending and receiving waves?  

VERA(VLBI Exploration of Radio Astrometry) Ishigakijima station, Okinawa, Japan. National Astronomical Observatory of Japan. Shisa is on the gate.

Close to the epicenter of the Japan Quake at 25.902 latitude and 128.417 longitude, at precisely  24°24′43.834″N 124°10′15.578″E / 24.41217611°N 124.17099389°E / 24.41217611; 124.17099389 is the VERA 20m radio telescopes in Ishigakijima, Japan.  Coincidence?  

From our friends in Tokyo, Japan is the induction magnetometer installed at the HAARP site in Alaska.  It is  designed to detect temporal variations of the geomagnetic field.  The following illustrates the 36 hour time period surrounding the earthquakes.

Current geophysical data is available from more scientific instruments at HAARP  http://www.haarp.alaska.edu/haarp/data.html .   

What motivations would a country have to aim a Tesla like earthquake weapon, if one exists at all?   

The website “Not Another Conspiracy,” http://www.notanotherconspiracy.com/2010/02/japan-earthquake-relations-with-iran.html points out the political connection that Tokyo made an offer to construct five nuclear power plants for Tehran.  Most of the world is against Iran having any sort of access to Uranium for any use. We point out that Japan is now the U.S.’s largest holder of Treasury debt.  America bombs them and they own us. Humph.  

Last week, “Chile’s former Labor and Social Security Minister demystifies the U.S.’s $100 trillion unfunded benefits problem. Since Pinera is the man who many years ago privatized Chile’s entitlement system, America, and the entire Western system, which for the past century has been relying on unfunded liabilities to provide benefits to the population in the hopes that funding day will never come, may do well to listen to what he has to say. His message: the American way of life, more so than anything else, in which reckless spending, living on credit and not saving for the future, is precisely why the US will be bankrupt very soon. via http://www.zerohedge.com/article/100-trillion-problem-can-america-learn-chile-its-too-late  

“So this big hole is not only a problem in America, it’s exactly the same problem in Greece today, in Southern Europe, in France, in Germany. The west will go bankrupt unless you reform deeply the entitlement state. You are all prisoners of the Bismark unfunded entitlement system…  

Is this “big hole,”  and yet another seismic catastrophe just the opportunity for a New World Order and loss of American sovereignty as some have suggested?  

Alas, back to the quakes- there is no dispute that Japan sits above 4 tectonic plates. These are the North American, the Eurasian, the Philippine Sea Plate and the Pacific Plate, often referred to as the Niigata-Kobe Tectonic Zone(NKTZ). http://cais.gsi.go.jp/Virtual_GSI/Tectonics/Niigata_Kobe/niigata_kobe.html   

And, from Nat Geo via,  http://news.nationalgeographic.com/2010/02/100227-tsunami-warning-for-hawaii-after-huge-chile-earthquake/ Chili’s earthquake occurred along the junction of the Nazca and South American tectonic plates, which are colliding off the coast of Chile at a rate of 80 millimeters per year….one of the most active tectonic zones in the world.  

Long and short Chile, and Japan sit on active tectonic plates and both have considerable observatories to monitor whatever you can imagine, and perhaps create whatever you can imagine.  What is not an imagination is that fact is that a tsunami alert went out hours before the first waves, described by Nat Geo as, “traveling at the speed of a passenger jetliner and were expected to hit Hawaii at 11:19 this morning, local time.”  

ABC news added that,” The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center also issued a tsunami advisory for the coast of California and an Alaskan coastal area from Kodiak to Attu islands. http://www.pompom.in/2010/02/hawaii-reels-under-tsunami-warning/  

Alaska,yes.  http://www.tsuru-bird.net/attu/ for some interesting photos, maps and hitsory of the Attu Islands. 

We wonder could this tsunami generate a cleansing of- , “A “national sacrifice zone” is unofficial military designation these days for tracts of land polluted beyond any possible future use. The same words have historically been used to describe areas of Alaska devoted to national security projects. http://www.mapcruzin.com/news/bush072901a.htm.  

Tomorrow will tell what academic data HAARP produces….  Stay tuned.

internet guilty

The Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement negotiations continue in a few hours as Seoul, Korea plays host to the latest round of talks.  The governments have posted the meeting agenda, which unsurprisingly focuses on the issue of Internet enforcement [UPDATE 11/4: Post on discussions for day two of ACTA talks, including the criminal enforcement provisions].  The United States has drafted the chapter under enormous secrecy, with selected groups granted access under strict non-disclosure agreements and other countries (including Canada) given physical, watermarked copies designed to guard against leaks.http://www.michaelgeist.ca/content/view/4510/125/

WTF?  Wake up, there is no transparency and we are about to be held to a standard that almost prohibits free speech.  As an author, we do our best to provide proper credits for anything we cite as a source.  We would hope that spammers and authentic writers do the same for us, and usually they do for fear of being held accountable in a lawsuit.  Click on the disclosure tab at the top to see how we have tried to cover our a$$.

“On the international front, it provides firm confirmation that the treaty is not a counterfeiting trade, but a copyright treaty.”  

“A U.S.-drafted chapter on Internet use would require ISPs to police user-generated content, to cut off Internet access for copyright violators,  and to remove content that is accused of copyright violation without any proof of actual violation. The chapter also completely prohibits DRM workarounds, even for archiving or retrieving one’s own work.” writes http://www.readwriteweb.com/archives/copyright_treaty_leaked_trouble_for_isps_and_in.php

In the U.S. you are innocent until proven guilty, but this may usurp everything you have ever learned about properly citing your sources and in the process limit your free speech.  Say nothing of fines and threats of imprisonment.

The leaks suggest that countries who sign up to the U.S promoted plan would have to force ISPs to proactively police copyright on user-generated content, cut off those accused (or face liability), and put “graduated response” clauses in customer contracts. An example of a graduated response is France’s “three strikes and you’re out” law. There, you get two warnings if caught sharing music or movies, then you’re banned for up to two years. http://gizmodo.com/5396757/secret-copyright-treaty-details-leak-isps-worldwide-to-become-copyright-cops 

Two years without the Internet?  Tsk, tsk- as if someone who broke copyright law couldn’t walk into an Internet cafe in Paris, Korea, Russia or the middle of butt fcuk Egypt to log on.  Good luck with that enforcement.  $hit, America can’t keep the illegal immigrants out and we are expected to believe in the Internet police?  We still believe in Santa, because if you don’t believe- you don’t receive.

Just how much control does President Obama seek?  Prohibiting free speech further erodes every citizen’s right and enhances government control over yet another aspect of our life. 

Best if all- ““The internet chapter of the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement, a secret copyright treaty whose text Obama’s administration refused to disclose due to ‘national security’ concerns, has leaked. It’s bad.” You can read the original leaked document or the summary. If passed, the internet will never be the same. Thank goodness it’s hidden from public scrutiny for National Security. via http://yro.slashdot.org/story/09/11/04/144240/Secret-Copyright-Treaty-Leaks-Its-Bad-Very-Bad

internet

The SEC and Department of Homeland Security are saying we need a web backup plan in the event the H1N1 Swine Flu Pandemic forces people to stay in their homes to use computers even more than usual for work or play.

Homeland Security Department accused the GAO of having unrealistic expectations of how the Internet could be managed if millions began to telework from home at the same time as bored or sick schoolchildren were playing online, sucking up valuable bandwidth….Private Internet providers might need government authorization to block popular websites, it said, or to reduce residential transmission speeds to make way for commerce.  http://www.reuters.com/article/newsOne/idUSN2620750120091026?pageNumber=1&virtualBrandChannel=0

Are politician looking craft new ways to get more control on the last free media frontier we have? We believe it is essential that the Internet remain unrestricted with an open platform. 365 days a year, 24/7.  President Obama on the other hand has not been quiet about pushing for Internet legislation.

The government wants to make sure everyone has access to the Internet and have set aside $7.2 billion in stimulus dollars for construction.http://www.examiner.com/x-10317-San-Diego-County-Political-Buzz-Examiner~y2009m10d21-Net-Neutrality-enforcement-may-reach-into-your-computer Again with the stimulus dollars.  Private investment and the private sector is what has spurned it’s growth.  As we have been witness to banks and car companies who accept bailout funds, they also accept government control and regulations. 

Last week the FCC begin consideration of the rules that would protect and promote open broadband pipes to the Internet. Over the next several months, an official rule making proceeding will take place, along with public workshops and technical advisory discussions, allowing everyone to provide feedback before the Commission adopts a final set of rules.  The proposed rules can be found here as a pdf http://hraunfoss.fcc.gov/edocs_public/attachmatch/FCC-09-93A1.pdf  We found it interesting that on p. 97  the document quotes Thomas Jefferson, “The course of history shows that as the government grows, liberty decreases.”

Google CEO Eric Schmidt and Verizon Wireless CEO Lowell McAdam showed in a joint blog post that stakeholders can work together with mutual respect to find common ground, even as we acknowledge and defend important policy differences.  http://googlepublicpolicy.blogspot.com/2009/10/finding-common-ground-on-open-internet.html

One significant issue, is that the government apparently uses the same Internet protocols and the same operating systems as the private sector, making cyber security a universal problem as opposed to a governmental problem.  Hackers may find a greater payload in targeting critical infrastructure such as power grids, financial or communication networks or air traffic control systems than in attacking the CIA or the Pentagon.  An attack by an adversary nation, much less a cyber extortionist or terrorist, is not so far-fetched. http://www.latimes.com/news/opinion/commentary/la-oe-zirin14-2009oct14,0,603775.story 

 internet2usamap2

The federally funded Next Generation Internet (NGI) project (http://www.ngi.gov/) exists parallel to and complementary with Internet2, http://www.internet2.edu/ We have trouble believing that America’s nuclear weapons arsenal operate on the standard net. Internet2 is not available to the general public, even though our taxpayer dollars support it.  More about that here http://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/07/15/internet-censorship-shocking-treatment-of-taxpayer/ The speed of information-sharing network on Internet2 is now 100 Gbit!

Thomas has the draft of the Rockefeller Cybersecurity Act S 773 here,  http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/z?c111:S.773.  It  gives the president powers to “declare a cybersecurity emergency” and shut down or limit Internet traffic in any “critical” information network “in the interest of national security.”  More of our previous thoughts here http://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/08/29/obama-internet-controcybersecurity/

The proposed rules claim that Cisco’s built Internet routers have over 28.1 million lines of code- does anyone realistically foresee the government being able to regulated something so large?  Are attacks of the Swine Flu more common than cyber security breaches?  We we do know that the nation has done a pretty miserable job coordinating it’s response to past emergencies as evidenced by Hurricane Katrina, the financial bailouts, and now the H1N1 Swine Flu Pandemic.  If big brother takes over the Internet, the last bastion of freedom of speech in what is left of our democracy, could be gone.

With more change you can believe in; President Obama and his administration has taken over banks, insurance companies, portions of the automobile industry and continues to set his eyes on controlling the private sector of the Internet. 

Back in April 09,”Senator John D. (Jay) Rockefeller IV, Chairman of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation and Senator Olympia Snowe (R-ME) today announced the introduction of comprehensive cybersecurity legislation to address our nation’s vulnerability to cyber crime, global cyber espionage, and cyber attacks that could potentially cripple the United States’ critical infrastructure.http://commerce.senate.gov/public/index.cfm?FuseAction=PressReleases.Detail&PressRelease_id=bb7223ef-1d78-4de4-b1d5-4cf54fc38662

The first draft, pdf http://cdt.org/security/CYBERSEC4.pdf has apparently gone through some revisions, but continues to give the president powers to “declare a cybersecurity emergency” and shut down or limit Internet traffic in any “critical” information network “in the interest of national security.”  The new working draft of the Rockefeller/Cybersecurity Act / S.773  can be found here http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/z?d111:s.00773:

I wonder what the definition of a critical information network or a cybersecurity emergency is?  Would Obama decide that too many blogs or news stories that are in disagreement with his policies requires a shut down?

The bill does not define a critical information network or a cybersecurity emergency. That definition would be left to the president.

The bill also gives the Secretary of Commerce “access to all relevant data concerning [critical] networks without regard to any provision of law, regulation, rule, or policy restricting such access.”  Translated, this the government can monitor or access any data on private or public networks without regard to privacy laws.  How special that our Constitutional Harvard Law Graduate of a President continues to erode our Constitution and freedom of speech.  What about Constitutional protection against searches without cause?

Granted, cybersecurity threats are real and we need to protect the nation’s critical infrastructure.  A little law from the 1980′s- The Electronic Communications Privacy Act (ECPA)  requires law enforcement seek a warrant before tapping in to data transmissions between computers.  To whom does Obama answer? The Internet Security Czar?  ROLF. 

In conspiracy land, Obama could make use of Rep. Linda T. Sanchez bill http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/z?c111:H.R.1966 pending that says, “`Sec. 881. Cyberbullying. (a) Whoever transmits in interstate or foreign commerce any communication, with the intent to coerce, intimidate, harass, or cause substantial emotional distress to a person, using electronic means to support severe, repeated, and hostile behavior, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned” ……. I am having emotional distress at the possibility of government restricting information!  Is the White House distressed because people disagree with the Health Insurance reform bill? 

With the coming of Internet 2, 3, 4, 5 etc we are already restricted. The federally funded Next Generation Internet (NGI) project (http://www.ngi.gov/) exists parallel to and complementary with Internet2 that is filled with bits of information that the common Internet user does not have access to even though our tax dollars fund it. I’m no expert, but wouldn’t it make sense to take critical networks to another level?

Melissa Hathaway, the White House’s last acting cybersecurity czar jumped ship after her recommendations were made. She, ” figured out that what the government can do to secure cyberspace is … nothing. Neither the computer networks nor human organizations cited in the official definition of cyberspace in Hathaway’s report were designed for top-down regulation. Federal oversight works for airports, but not for the Internet. In cyberspace, the best thing the government can do is what Hathaway just did: get out of the way.  http://venturebeat.com/2009/08/04/cybersecurity-czar-has-the-right-idea-give-up-on-centralized-security/

From the White House earlier this month,”we’re asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to flag@whitehouse.gov. sourced at http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/Facts-Are-Stubborn-Things/.  The Privacy Act of 1974 courtesy of  Nixon’s Watergate scandal prohibits any federal agency from maintaining records on individuals exercising their right to free speech but there is also a statute that requires the White House to retain all communications that it receives. More on this at http://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/08/08/white-house-fishy-information-legal-in-cyberwar/

The conundrum boils down to one more thing the government seeks to control.  At least the premise of the Fairness Doctrine for the time being is on the shelf. 

 From the folks at CBS NEWS http://www.cbsnews.com/blogs/2009/08/28/taking_liberties/entry5270834.shtml who talked to Jena Longo, deputy communications director for the Senate Commerce committee, on the phone. She sent me e-mail with this statement:

The President of the United States has always had the Constitutional authority, and duty, to protect the American people and direct the national response to any emergency that threatens the security and safety of the United States. The Rockefeller-Snowe Cybersecurity bill makes it clear that the President’s authority includes securing our national cyber infrastructure from attack. The section of the bill that addresses this issue, applies specifically to the national response to a severe attack or natural disaster. This particular legislative language is based on longstanding statutory authorities for wartime use of communications networks. To be very clear, the Rockefeller-Snowe bill will not empower a “government shut down or takeover of the internet” and any suggestion otherwise is misleading and false. The purpose of this language is to clarify how the President directs the public-private response (emphasis mine) to a crisis, secure our economy and safeguard our financial networks, protect the American people, their privacy and civil liberties, and coordinate the government’s response.

“Free speech goes right to the very heart of what it is I talk about all the time – blogging. I believe that bloggers form an army of citizen reporters. Not all bloggers get it right. Some of them are downright nuts. But, in a country with free speech, that is par for the course.” says http://www.davidrisley.com/2009/08/28/free-speech-infringement/ and I agree wholeheartedly.

I said it before,” What’s a good defense, if you don’t have a good offense like Big Brother collecting personal data?” Now having the potential to just shut it all down as the President deems, dooms us to another step up the socialism ladder.   Pulling the plug on grandpa and the Internet in the same presidency redefines liberty and tyranny.

Never mind protecting our electric grids, air traffic control systems, water supply systems from cyber attack.  Big Brother, President Obama and the White House blog  is concentrating on monitoring the right to free speech in the blogosphere…

There is a lot of disinformation about health insurance reform out there, spanning from control of personal finances to end of life care.  These rumors often travel just below the surface via chain emails or through casual conversation.  Since we can’t keep track of all of them here at the White House, we’re asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to flag@whitehouse.gov. sourced at http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/Facts-Are-Stubborn-Things/

So is it legal?  The Privacy Act of 1974 courtesy of  Nixon’s Watergate scandal prohibits any federal agency from maintaining records on individuals exercising their right to free speech.

“The White House is in bit of a conundrum because of this privacy statute that prohibits the White House from collecting data and storing it on people who disagree with it,” Judge Andrew Napolitano, a FOX News analyst, said Friday.  “There’s also a statute that requires the White House to retain all communications that it receives. It can’t try to rewrite history by pretending it didn’t receive anything,” he said.

Ah, lest we not forget that America is under a Public Health Emergency thanks to H1N1 Swine Flu, which opens another can of worms that could erode private citizens rights. 

The threat and potential for mandatory mass inoculations and martial law would certainly give the Administration latitude to collect whatever information it deems necessary in the interest of national security. 

The advent of Internet attacks — especially those suspected of being directed by nations, not hackers — has given rise to a new term inside the Pentagon and the National Security Agency: “hybrid warfare.” http://www.nytimes.com/2009/04/28/us/28cyber.html?pagewanted=2&_r=1&ref=technology

Is cyberwar and hybrid warfare covered by the War Powers Act? 

Believe you me it is not just the government who wants to know if you are in disagreement or have something of value stored on your computer, “The experts are sure of only one thing: whenever information is vulnerable and has significant monetary or intelligence value, it is only a matter of time until someone tries to steal it.” http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=hackers-can-steal-from-reflections

“In the 1960s American military scientists began studying the radio waves given off by computer monitors and launched a program, code-named “Tempest,” to develop shielding techniques that are used to this day in sensitive government and banking computer systems…..Similarly, commonplace radio surveillance equipment can pick up keystrokes as they are typed on a keyboard in a different room”

What’s a good defense, if you don’t have a good offense like Big Brother collecting personal data? 

When you die, and having duly paid your death tax, your personal data will live in infamy- whether you like it or not and whether it is legal or not.

chicago attack
In practicing for terror exercises over Chicago, is Falcon Virgo 09-Windy City-One, a red flag warning that there could be an immanent attack?  Could Sears Tower, now called Willis Tower as of last week, be the next catastrophic terrorist attack on U.S. Soil?  Willis Group Holdings, a London-based insurance broker is the new owner http://www.willistower.com/- will they be the  next 9/11 or the 9/11-2b?   The zip code of the Sears- er, Willis Tower is 60606- 666!  I still hear Joe Biden’s warning that in the next 6 months America and President Obama will be tested. 

 
“TYNDALL AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. – The North American Aerospace Defense Command and its geographical component, the Continental United States NORAD Region (CONR), will conduct a one-day exercise, Falcon Virgo 09-Windy City-One, July 21 in Chicago. “The exercise comprises a series of training flights held in coordination with the Federal Aviation Administration, Chicago Air Route Traffic Control Center, Chicago Terminal Radar Approach Control, the Continental U.S. NORAD Region, Customs and Border Protection and CORN’s Eastern Air Defense.” Sector” http://www.norad.mil/News/2009/072009.html
 
Since Sept. 11, 2001, NORAD fighters have responded to more than 2,100 possible air threats in the United States and have flown more than 51,000 sorties.  51,000 sorties  in 8 years?   Ummm that works out …….8 years times 52 weeks in a year equals a total of 416 weeks-  times 7 days in a week, equals 2,912 days.  Take those 51,000 sorties divided by the 2912 days and you get an average of 17.5 sorties flown every single day since 9-11.  Holy shit, batman.  Yet, we need more practice?
 
Tuning in my antennae, military exercises were operational leading up to the events of September 11, 2001.  One 9/11 Report, NORAD Exercises Hijack Summary http://www.scribd.com/doc/16411947/NORAD-Exercises-Hijack-Summary  simulated aircraft hijackings by terrorists over NYC.  HistoryCommons.org also hosts Timelines of entities and events, based on mainstream sources- the National Archives’ 9/11 Commission records are uploaded here for the Complete 9/11 Timeline http://www.scribd.com/HistoryCommons
 
The military unit most involved in the exercises leading to 9/11, Vigilant Guardian was NORAD’s Northeast Air Defense Sector (NEADS).  The imaginary scenario and exercises played out in reality days later. Labeling it a failed emergency response on the day of the attacks, is to put it mildly. 
 
“For the NEADS crew, 9/11 was not a story of four hijacked airplanes, but one of a heated chase after more than a dozen potential hijackings—some real, some phantom—that emerged from the turbulence of misinformation that spiked in the first 100 minutes of the attack and continued well into the afternoon and evening,” wrote Vanity Fair Magazine.  Asking, “How did the U.S. Air Force respond on 9/11? Could it have shot down United 93, as conspiracy theorists claim? Obtaining 30 hours of never-before-released tapes from the control room of NORAD’s Northeast head-quarters, the author reconstructs the chaotic military history of that day—and the Pentagon’s apparent attempt to cover it up.
 
Paragraph #1680, page 346
“The North American Aerospace Defense Command imagined the possible use of aircraft as weapons, too, and developed exercises to counter such a threat—from planes coming to the United States from overseas, perhaps carrying a weapon of mass destruction. None of this speculation was based on actual intelligence of such a threat. One idea, intended to test command and control plans and NORAD’s readiness, postulated a hijacked airliner coming from overseas and crashing into the Pentagon. The idea was put aside in the early planning of the exercise as too much of a distraction from the main focus (war in Korea), and as too unrealistic.As we pointed out in chapter 1, the military planners assumed that since such aircraft would be coming from overseas; they would have time to identify the target and scramble interceptors.”

A National Level Exercise, 2009 (NLE ’09) is scheduled July 27-31, 2009. “NLE 09 will allow terrorism prevention efforts to proceed to a logical end (successful or not), with no requirement for response or recovery activities.” http://www.fema.gov/media/fact_sheets/nle09.shtm No requirement for response ? In the event of a real attack during the NLE, we we again have menial response like on 9/11 or no response at all?  Our U.S. military and federal agencies, in cooperation with foreign troops from Australia, Canada, Mexico and the United Kingdom (Yes- foreign troops on U.S. Soil !) will be practicing for more imaginary catastrophic events concentrated around Washington, DC and FEMA Region VI, which includes the states of Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas.
 
Rather ironic FEMA issued this press release regarding  Texas, today July 21, 2009, ” has awarded more than $20 million in hazard mitigation grants to the city of Galveston to acquire 64 homes that suffered extensive damage as a result of Hurricane Ike. One $15.3 million grant was obligated to Galveston for authorities to acquire 46 residential properties located in the 100-year floodplain. Another grant provides $5.4 million to be used for the acquisition of 18 properties in the 100-year floodplain. http://www.fema.gov/news/newsrelease.fema?id=49128  By math math, that 40 million dollars to acquire 128 houses or property–that an average of $312,000 each. Estimated median house or condo value in 2007: $119,658 http://www.city-data.com/housing/houses-Galveston-Texas.html
 
Terrorist attacks don’t just come from plane, trains, automobiles, bombs or in physicality, as The Corbett Report http://www.corbettreport.com/articles/20090717_cyber_911.htm asks, did the real cyber 9/11 attack occur on 9/11?   
 
President Bush signed the plans to invade Afghanistan on Sept. 10th, the day before 9/11 and just yesterday it was announced that another 25,000 soldiers were heading to Afghanistan- pronto.  And as Ron Paul reminded us eight years ago, “We should recognize that American tax dollars helped to create the very Taliban government that now wants to destroy us. In the late 1970s and early 80s, the CIA was very involved in the training and funding of various fundamentalist Islamic groups in Afghanistan, some of which later became today’s brutal Taliban government. In fact, the U.S. government admits to giving the groups at least 6 billion dollars in military aid and weaponry, a staggering sum that would be even larger in today’s dollars.” 
A unique timeline of more events of 9/11 and the Al Qaeda and the Taliban is here http://s3.amazonaws.com/911timeline/main/AAafghanwar.html 
 
Neil Barofsky, special inspector general for the Treasury’s Troubled Asset Relief Program say the U.S. rescue may reach $23.7 Trillion dollars admitting offered criticism in a separate quarterly report of Treasury’s implementation of TARP, saying the department has “repeatedly failed to adopt recommendations” needed to provide transparency and fulfill the administration’s goal to implement TARP “with the highest degree of accountability.”
As a result, taxpayers don’t know how TARP recipients are using the money or the value of the investments, he said in the report. sourced at http://globaleconomicanalysis.blogspot.com/2009/07/tarp-special-investigator-says-bailout.html.  The other aberration of America’s economic woes is paying $15 million dollars for toilets on the international space station http://www.hightechscience.org/zero_gravity_toilet.htm   
 
In this era of supposed transparency, is is painfully obvious that  the 9/11 Commission omitted so many things and deceived the public.  Our government will continue to do so in the name of national security.  Printing, spending and loosing trillions and loosing more lives in terrorist attacks here or abroad is beyond absurd.  The Stenster blog claims, “The failure of the FBI to investigate our professional and proven analysis indicates that the pending 9/11-2B attack is an official conspiracy. The propagandizing by CNN and other Jewish-controlled media against U.S. militias like Ghost Troop indicates that they are a part of that conspiracy.” http://stienster.blogspot.com/
 
Pray -practice makes perfect as the NORAD Press Release says – Falcon Virgo Windy City-Two and Windy City -Three are future exercises that have yet to be scheduled.

911wtc911-mystery92000dojterrorismmanual 

We know that you knew, that they knew, you know? 

Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, Israeli intelligence Aman, and others warned with credible evidence of a major attack on the United States prior to September 11, 2001. THE WMD Guidebook show here was in use prior to 911.  In Pakistan and other Muslim countries they believe that the attacks were part of an Israeli conspiracy, but there is little doubt that it was Osama bin Laden and his Al-Qaeda network who were responsible for the attacks. 

Diligence or luck has prevented another attack on U.S. Soil even though VP Joe Biden has predicted that within six months of his administration, Obama would be tested just as John F. Kennedy was.  This is day 101.

You “Watch, we’re gonna have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy,” Biden said. “And he’s gonna have to make some really tough — I don’t know what the decision’s gonna be, but I promise you it will occur. As a student of history and having served with seven presidents, I guarantee you, it’s gonna happen.” http://firstread.msnbc.msn.com/archive/2008/10/20/1572652.aspx

The current crisis is Obama having declassified and released memos detailing the programs used to question al Qaeda suspects. Is water boarding torture, did it violate U.S. and international laws?  Has Obama has endangered the country by releasing CIA secrets.  Contradicting himself, he also said he would not necessarily oppose an effort to pursue a “further accounting” and investigation into the Bush-era interrogation program that included waterboarding, sleep deprivation, forced nudity, shoving people into walls and other methods.  You want to bet we’ll see a full blown investigation of the CIA Interrogation program that reveals more secrets for the terrorists to use against us? 

Even Donald Rumsfeld on a Larry King Interview prior to 911 said, “Well, we have to recognize that it’s a dangerous and untidy world. There’s a lot of very powerful, lethal weapons that exist and ways that people can impose enormous damage. And we have to be vigilant. We have to be willing to invest to see that we have the kinds of capabilities that we can deter and defend and, where necessary, preempt. ” http://www.september11news.com/Mysteries3.htm  He went on to mention that on the morning of 911 he predicted there would be an event that would occur in the world that would be sufficiently shocking that it would remind people, again, how important it is to have a strong, healthy Defense Department that contributes — that underpins peace and stability in our world.”

I call foul. Everyone knew something was about to happen and all that Intel slipped through the cracks allowing the most horrific attack on U.S. soil since Japan bombed Pearl Harbor.  Bush had more faulty Intel on Iraq.  We caught a few bad guys and even released some but when some piss ants cry foul about how we treat (-ed) enemy combatants, you have to wonder what information was gathered to prevent further incidents.  Why are members of Congress are doing a tight wire dance to relieve themselves of any association with interrogation procedures that not only did they know about, but worked. 

From the Herald Tribune today, http://www.heraldtribune.com/article/20090422/ARTICLE/904221065?Title=In-embrace-of-harsh-tactics-no-inquiry-into-their-past In 2002, “As was common with the most secret programs, the C.I.A. chose not to brief the entire committees about the interrogation methods but only the so-called Gang of Four — the top Republican and Democrat on the Senate and House committees. The rest of the committee members would be fully briefed only in 2006.” The 2002 Gang of Four briefings left a hodgepodge of contradictory recollections that, to some Congressional staff members, reveal a dysfunctional oversight system. Without full staff support, few lawmakers are equipped to make difficult legal and policy judgments about secret programs, critics say.

Representative Nancy Pelosi of California, who in 2002 was the ranking Democrat on the House committee, has said in public statements that she recalls being briefed on the methods, including waterboarding. She insists, however, that the lawmakers were told only that the C.I.A. believed the methods were legal — not that they were going to be used.  By contrast, the ranking Republican on the House committee at the time, Porter J. Goss of Florida, who later served as C.I.A. director, recalls a clear message that the methods would be used. “We were briefed, and we certainly understood what C.I.A. was doing,” Mr. Goss said in an interview. “Not only was there no objection, there was actually concern about whether the agency was doing enough.”  http://www.reuters.com/article/politicsNews/idUSTRE53J6MS20090422?sp=true  He said, she said- they all knew it was going on and although morally reprehensible, legal.

Intel and congress knew attacks were imminent.  Intel and congress knew exactly what was happening at Guantanamo.  Peter J. Goss has the balls to actually admit that the information they got from torture, prevented further plans to destroy and attack America.    If acts of mental and physical ability to resist, resulted in saving American lives and halting the spread of terrorism, then so be it and Goss should be looked at as a hero not a scapegoat.

At the very least, if Obama wants to declassify details of the programs, he needs to declassify the findings as well.  By all accounts they acted legally within the interpretation of the law. I don’t have to like how they did it, but any future terrorist now knows that torture will not be a part of a deterrent to committing crimes against America. 

Transparency in America shouldn’t be good for the terrorists.

Mathew 24- 6- And ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars; see that ye be not troubled: for these things must needs come to pass; but the end is not yet.7- For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; and there shall be famines and earthquakes…

The end of the world is not yet, but for those people around the world effected by disasters like tsunami’s, volcanoes, war, famine, etc., and the recent rash of earthquakes in Central Italy, we have to look toward the arguments of predictability and governments role in squelching information and limiting free speech. 

“”It is part of the American myth that our major media are objective and unbiased, a mainstay of democracy. We believe, however, that the overwhelmingly dominant corporate media have become merely the voice of an increasingly unilateral and controlled empire, devoted to the indoctrination of the public in the interests of corporate, industrial, military, and ruling powers. ” http://mediafilter.org/caq/ 

Giampaolo Guiliani is a well respected scientist at The San Grasso Physics lab, in L’Aquila, central Italy.  He did not stand on a street corner wearing a sandwich board, proclaiming the end of the world, dressed like Jesus Christ.  He made a prediction based on his years of seismographic study and an interpretation of radon science that an earthquake was forecast for the Central Italy. The Italian government officials censored him and shut him down for “spreading alarm.”  

Rather than relying in his expertise and plausibility, he was admonished by his own government for fear mongering pure and simple.  Fear mongering is just another form of control by governments who believe generally that the populations is stupid, that riots will ensue, and civil unrest will be imminent.   Can a citizen no longer allow people to decide for themselves what is believable?  Many people in the L’Aquila region never heard the warning to make a decision. 

In the US, among others- radio personality Alex Jones at http://www.infowars.com/  offers a conspiracy-tinted view containing strong opposition to socialism, communism, and the New World Order with insight and predictability of governments covert intentions and other conspiracy theories.  Art Bell on Coast to Coast Radio offered an outlet for  a mature outlet of discussion.  At its initial peak in popularity, Coast To Coast AM was syndicated on more than 500 radio stations and claimed 15 million listeners nightly.  Current show host George Norry still discusses off-beat topics like the paranormal, occult, UFOs, pseudo scients and conspiracy theories.

In the U.S. we enjoy a pretty open dialog thanks to the Freedom of Speech clause but for how long?  The Fairness Doctrine moving through the Senate will give the government the power to decide what is on terrestrial radio, satellite radio and may go so far as regulating TV programming.  Is it in the name of fairness or fear? 

Bilderberg icon, Senator Jay Rockefeller has labeled cyber security as the number one national hazard of attack on the homeland of WV, America or anywhere else.  He said, ” it was it better if we never invented the Internet because it is on the Internet that the DOD gets millions of attacks everyday..they can shut down, electricity, banking and anything we have to offer.”  Way to dis Al Gore!

Apparently, In The New World Order, what better means to eliminate the free exchange of information that to eliminate the Internet in the name of national security? 

Daily, we stay connected with our high technology gadgets like ipods, wireless computers, cell phones, hand held blackberry’s, and iphones.  In the bigger picture we a have computerized military with high tech jet fighters, a space program, nuclear subs, missile silos, nuclear bombs, etc.,  Rockefeller expects us to believe that government can’t protect itself on the Internet? 

Keeping the computers off line that control vital systems and classified data disconnected from the Internet so no one could hack into it would be a good place to start.  What reason would critical infrastructures like nuclear bombs, power grids or transpiration networks for example need to be on the public Internet in the first place?

Under the guise of  Acta- the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement, the government would have access to your ipod and laptop computers. Actively being pursued among the G8 nations, the purpose of the Acta agreement is to prevent illegal downloading and ripped copyrighted movies. http://www.bluegrasspundit.com/

Best of all, one person could pull the plug on all Internet communications. “El Presidente can order the disconnection of those networks during a “cybersecurity emergency” or national security emergency if needed,   ” writes http://www.engadget.com/2009/04/06/proposed-bill-would-create-national-cybersecurity-advisor/

Office of the National Cybersecurity Adviser within the White House—is established in a separate short-but-sweet bill running a mere three pages.   The details fall in place in the language of The Cybersecurity Act of 2009  ‘‘our nation’s security and economic prosperity depend on the security, stability, and integrity of communications and information infrastructure that are largely privately-owned.and globally-operated.’’ http://static.arstechnica.com/tech-policy/CYBERSEC5.pdf 

Under Obama if the government operates things and controls information we will all be safer!  Whew, I was worried about having health records on line under certified EHR technology-  qualified electronic health record and that is certified pursuant to section 3001. http://www.abovetopsecret.com/forum/thread437069/pg1

There is also a new industry-run mailing list to foster discussion of security issues on SCADA systems — the aging and insecure computerized control networks behind the electric grid and other critical infrastructures, but you have watch what you say.

“Due to heightened security and awareness levels worldwide, ALL MESSAGES ARE WATCHED CAREFULLY.  Violators who report methods that are going to disable, damage, dismember, destroy, or disarm any control system, SCADA device, or infrastructure will be reported to DHS (and/or their respective national or federal authority).”  http://blog.wired.com/27bstroke6/2008/02/scada-security.html#previouspost

One can no longer discuss security issues without the risk of arrest?  Does the security of industrial networks and industrial control systems (seguridad scada) offer a deterrent to crime or a threat to restrict freedom of speech, or is it just plain old fear mongering?

The WSJ says “Cyberspies have penetrated the U.S. electrical grid and left behind software programs that could be used to disrupt the system, according to current and former national-security officials.”  “There are intrusions, and they are growing.” http://online.wsj.com/article/SB123914805204099085.html

Are the theatrics of Hollywood movie’s and books providing a warning that disasters imagined, may turn out to be real?  In the new movie Echelon, dangerous security operatives chase the engineer across the globe, while a powerful government official pursues a mysterious agenda that threatens the stability of the entire world. The http://lighthousepatriotjournal.wordpress.com/2009/04/01/hollyweird-fantasy-versus-the-real-world/#more-5184 has an interesting post on the relationships on fantasy movies and government censorship.  Rumors have abounded for several years of a massive system designed to intercept virtually all email and fax traffic in the world and subject it to automated analysis, despite laws in many nations (including this one) barring such activity. The system is called ECHELON!  From a 1997 article in the London Telegraph- “There are times in history when technology helps democratise, and times when it helps centralise. This is a time of centralisation.” http://whatreallyhappened.com/RANCHO/POLITICS/ECHELON/echelon.html  Centralizing or a New World Order?

Today Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez said, “We are creating a new world, a balanced world. A new world order, a multi polar world,..The unipolar world has collapsed. The power of the U.S. empire has collapsed,” he said. “Everyday, the new poles of world power are becoming stronger.”  

In times of prayer for the people affected by the Central Italian Earthquake, and in celebration of Passover and Easter, look toward the Bible in 2 Peter 3, 13 – “But in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, the home of righteousness.   Peter testified that God will create a new world.  

Man or God, someone is bringing The New World Order to reality, and that is no prediction.

Us and Them or Us vs Them?

President-elect Obama recorded a message for the Global Climate Summit, promising  “a new chapter of American leadership on climate change.”
There are so many chapters to Obama, and the book is still being written.  This week, Al Gore, once the ideal running mate, and Obama had a little two hour meet with Biden in tow to talk about climate change.

The author of “An Inconvenient Truth” and winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, Gore presented his ideas on the environment as one part of helping the nation’s struggling economy recovery.  Note that Gore was not offered a cabinet job.

Obama said they discussed so-called green jobs as a way to boost employment across the country, improve national security by reducing reliance on foreign oil, and reduce energy costs.  Obama said global warming is “not only a problem, but it’s also an opportunity.” http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/n/a/2008/12/08/national/w120629S86.DTL&type=politics

“We all believe what the scientists have been telling us for years now, that this is a matter of urgency and national security, and it has to be dealt with in a serious way,” said Obama.  Alas, more than 650 scientists from around the world disagree with claims made by the United Nations, Gore and Obama about global warming, “saying that science does not support that climate change is a man made phenomenon, according to a Senate environmental committee’s press blog.http://epw.senate.gov/public/index.cfm?FuseAction=Minority.Blogs&ContentRecord_id=2158072e-802a-23ad-45f0-274616db87e6

We have learned more than once that our leaders should take evidence from fact.  There were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, and the evidence is slipping that we are under a period of global warming.

Up to 6 inches of snow was reported in parts of Louisiana http://www.nola.com/news/index.ssf/2008/12/the_new_orleans_area_is.htm causing havoc.  New England residents are still without power from an ice storm. http://www.boston.com/news/local/massachusetts/articles/2008/12/13/ice_storm_paralyzes_parts_of_new_england/ and yet we see Obama and Gore chatting up the warmth.  Where is the fireplace setting?

Czech President Vaclav Klaus hit out at the EU climate deal concluded Friday and described global climate issues as “a silly luxury.”  http://www.spacedaily.com/2006/081212141651.tthkmkke.html 

Most folks don’t pollute and do our part, but when it comes down to it a whole industry has been created under the guise of climate change.  “Obama is pushing changes in the way Americans use energy, and produce greenhouse gases, as part of what will be a massive economic stimulus. He called it an opportunity “to re-power America.” http://apnews.myway.com/article/20081214/D952LKP00.html

A General Electric Lamp factory used to show brightly near my home town where they would produce standard light bulbs and employ thousands, now it is shuttered and dark.  The next generation of light bulb is a CFL or compact fluorescent light bulb touting energy savings at a higher cost but longer life.  Sounds good until we realize that these new light bulbs are filled with the toxic substance Mercury, a “highly toxic heavy metal that can cause brain damage and learning disabilities in fetuses and children” and as “one of the most poisonous forms of pollution.” http://www.financialpost.com/story.html?id=aa7796aa-e4a5-4c06- . 

Where are mercury-containing CFLs made? Not in the United States. under strict environmental regulation. CFLs are made in India and China, where environmental standards are virtually non-existent. 

“It’s too bad they’re so capable, experienced, and energetic because the energy and global warming policies that President-elect Obama wants them to pursue are radical, economically disastrous, and pointless,” says http://www.globalwarming.org/node/2827  and says that, “Reality is setting in around the world, as temperatures continue flat and efforts to reduce emissions prove costly and ineffective.  Let’s hope that our elected leaders in Congress see what’s happening before they turn off the lights.”

U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe could be our hero in waiting who often butts heads with Gore.  http://newsok.com/green-team-obamas-choices-will-challenge-inhofe/article/3330250   Is it all a big swindle?  Visit http://www.junkscience.com/ who argues that human activity is the chief cause of warming, if it exists at all.

Leading headlines this morning continue to be about the weather with excessive rains in California, sub zero temperatures in the upper Midwest and those still recovering from the massive ice storm in the North East.   The “Icebox of the Nation,” International Falls, temps remained below zero.  http://www.answers.com/topic/international-falls-minnesota

Global Warming, humph. 

Not in the headlines, it would appear that is is going to be a cold day in hell before anyone directly ties Obama to any Obamagate issues. 

Highlighting Chicago politics, the matter continues to show relationships between the about to be impeached Democratic governor and some members of Obama’s inner circle.  His top campaign strategist, David Axelrod, will move to the White House for a senior adviser’s job and lists Blagojevich on his firm’s Web site as one of his clients, when the politician was a candidate for Congress.

The US Supreme Court  on December 15, 2008, the same day
that the Electoral College  met to vote for president and vice
president, has denied WROTNOWSKI, CORT V. BYSIEWICZ, CT SEC. OF STATE case, seeking again to require a verification of Obama’s eligibility to hold office. http://citizenwells.wordpress.com/ on SCOTUS at http://origin.www.supremecourtus.gov/docket/08a469.htm.

Alan Keyes still has a case pending but it looks like we’ve got at least four years of a chilly forecast from an Obama administration. 

Obama has not been officially implicated or charged in anything.
