Does the Obama Administration have necessary intelligence to keep our country safe from attack?

The 4th of July’s fireworks in the U.S. could prove to be consequential for our military, world affairs, and life as we know it.  North Korea has warned that it anticipates firing another test missile, this one aimed toward the Hawaiian Islands. 

“North Korea has taken a consistent anti-Washington line since its creation in 1948, denouncing both the United States and South Korea as a puppet of the U.S. Since the end of the Korean War in 1953 the North has not attacked its neighbor, but to this day keeps large concentrations of troops and artillery focused on Seoul, and has regularly engaged in provocations like kidnappings, submarine incursions and missile tests over the Sea of Japan.” http://topics.nytimes.com/top/news/international/countriesandterritories/northkorea/index.html?scp=1-spot&sq=north%20korea&st=cse

Amazingly, President Obama made the decision to fire an an unarmed Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missile configured with a National Nuclear Security Administration test assembly, launched from North Vandenberg yesterday-o6.29.09 at 3:01 a.m. http://www.vandenberg.af.mil/news/story.asp?id=123156457  It launched from the California coast to an area in the Pacific Ocean some 4,200 miles away.

Prior to the launch of the missile that certainly provides proof that North Korea is well with in our range, NK “criticized the U.S. on Monday for positioning missile defense systems around Hawaii, calling the deployment part of a plot to attack the regime and saying it would bolster its nuclear arsenal in retaliation.” and ” “Through the U.S. forces’ clamorous movements, it has been brought to light that the U.S. attempt to launch a pre-emptive strike  (emphasis mine) on our republic has become a brutal fact,” the North’s main Rodong Sinmun newspaper said .  http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/06/29/AR2009062900307_pf.html

If North Korea was pissed that Defense Secretary Robert Gates ordered the deployment of a ground-based, mobile missile intercept system and radar system to Hawaii before the ICBM launch, imagine what they are thinking now?  America and Obama are about to find our who are friends are in the United Nations and New World Order having tested this missile. 

North Korea has repeatedly fired short and long range missiles, detonated nuclear bombs, threatened to nuke it’s neighbors, announces it’s going to launch a missile aimed for Hawaii and believes we should not defend ourselves.  That America is launching a pre-emptive strike?  By launching missiles from Vandenberg, is America the one’s providing the pre-emptive strike?  Kudos to Obama or has he lost his marbles?  Could he really not care if Hawaii and his original birth certificate gets blown up?

Both Obama and Barney Frank continue to seek a reduction in military spending while we fight: the war on drugs, the war on terror, the war in Afghanistan, the war on immigration, the war for socialism, etc..

Our military budget is not so defunct that  our government couldn’t provide about 40 tons of weapons and ammunition to Somalia’s embattled government in the past six weeks to help it fight Islamist insurgents(Reuters).  Not liking that one bit, “A spokesman for radical Islamic insurgents says his group will seize weapons the U.S. has supplied to Somalia’s embattled government.” (AP)  With props to http://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2009/06/29/small-arms-shipped-to-somalia/#comment-11480  Oh the Pirates of Somalia must be drunk with joy.

Why not just drop million of  dollars over the war zones and give everyone an equal chance to steal from America for all the good sending weapons there will do?   How many times in U.S. history have we financed and trained foreign armies only to have them retaliate and fire back at U.S. soldiers? 

In Iraq where 4000+ American soldiers have died, a public holiday was declared today to celebrate the official withdrawal of American troops from Iraqi cities.   http://www.nytimes.com/2009/07/01/world/middleeast/01iraq.html 

In the U.S., Michael Jackson continues to dominate the news as we anticipate our own nation’s public holiday, the 4th of July- Independence Day.  Need you be reminded, banks will be closed.

 

Make no mistake, playing with fireworks is dangerous.

Playing with a nuclear North Korea and its leader Kim Jong-il, could be deadly.

Just when I think American economists and politicians have the slightest clue about the most basic facts of world affairs, international trade, or the nature of money, I am reminded yet again of the hypocrisy of this financial and social abyss toward which America is heading in the pecking order of the New World Order.

The U.S. government owns the banks and the car industry.  It sets the rules, makes them up as it goes along and has control over the money supply.  It apparently has no oversight as the Fed in May tap danced around the missing  NINE TRILLION DOLLARS that we could sure use about now. 

Say nothing of main stream media whose focus on the deaths of Michael Jackson is a slap in the face. Icon, perhaps but a role model-hardly. What about all the dead soldiers from U.S. Wars and the one’s breathing  in over 130 foreign countries?  No views of them in the nightly news.

No worries though, Congressman Barney Frank (D-MA), Chairman of the Financial Services Committee, introduced legislation decriminalizing marijuana at the federal level again. If passed, the legislation would eliminate criminal penalties for possessing 100 grams or less of marijuana for personal use.  Not to be outdone, San Francisco Assemblyman Tom Ammiano announced the introduction of a bill to tax and regulate marijuana like alcohol in the state of California.  Yippee,  another government owned industry!  Obama just signed a huge tax increase on tobacco, I can only image the tax on a joint.

“The Ammiano legislation would create a regulatory structure for that market similar to that for beer, wine and liquor: it would regulate taxed sales to adults while barring sales to or possession by those under 21. Estimated annual revenue from fees and sales and excise taxes under the proposed regulations runs into the billions of dollars.http://www.drugpolicy.org/news/pressroom/pressrelease/pr022309b.cfm

Maybe the U.S. Government can subsidizes pot growers like it does cotton, corn, soybean and other farming industries with my tax dollars.  Maybe we can trade it on the commodities exchange and all the traders can get a little profit too.  I wonder what currency it will trade-  USD, Amero, Acmetal, Euro…? 

The rest of the world is focusing on a new reserve currency in the New World Order and we focus on legalizing pot and subsidizing farmers in Afghanistan. As of the 111th Congress, Frank is also advocating a 25 percent reduction in the overall Military budget of the United States.

The Huffington Post http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/06/27/us-announces-shift-in-afg_n_221826.html says that “The United States has announced a new drug policy for opium-rich Afghanistan, saying it was phasing out funding for eradication programs while significantly increasing its funding for alternate crop and drug interdiction efforts. The War on drugs in the U.S has thousands in prison for drugs with our failing policies here, and we are expected to believe that sending millions there will be a deterrent?  I still have that little island in the desert for sale if anyone is interested.

Last week when leaders of the so-called BRIC nations (Brazil, Russia, India and China) held their first summit.  The BRIC countries comprise 15 per cent of the world economy, 40 per cent of global currency reserves and half the world’s population.  The governments of BRIC and must be laughing like they were smoking marijuana and injecting heroin at America.  Our elected officials focus on legalizing pot rather than be bothered with the cumbersome announcement from Russian President Dmitri Medvedev that the U.S dollar is on notice.

“The artificially maintained unipolar system”, he lectured, is based on “one big centre of consumption, financed by a growing deficit and … one formerly strong reserve currency.” At the root of the global financial crisis, he concluded, is that the US makes too little and spends too much.   “The summit must create the conditions for a fairer world order.” …The BRICs have put the US dollar on notice, and are already finding alternatives as a means of clearing accounts. Medvedev called for the IMF to include the Russian ruble and the Chinese yuan in the basket of currencies used to value its financial products. But that is just for starters. Chinese Central Bank governor Zhou Xiaochuan says the goal is now to create a reserve currency “that is disconnected from individual nations.”sourced at  http://dprogram.net/2009/06/24/a-new-world-is-being-born-one-without-the-us-dollar-greasing-the-wheels-of-commerce/

China, known for it’s Human Rights violations says, “It is a common wish of people of all countries to solve the drug problem as soon as possible and to build this planet into a healthy, civilized, happy and beautiful world.” http://www.china-embassy.org/eng/zt/mzpkz/t36387.htm   “Those convicted of drug-related crimes in China face harsh penalties, in some cases capital punishment. Drug abusers and addicts must undergo rehabilitation at police-run facilities or labor camps. Reformers are attempting to introduce community-based treatment approaches to a system dominated by zero tolerance.”http://www.erowid.org/psychoactives/law/countries/law_china.shtml 

Apparently, the perceptions of a dead American dollar and a dead American soldier can be overcome by getting stoned on government subsidized Marijuana and Opium in The Obama Administration. 

Changes I don’t want to believe in….

Whew, finally summer has arrived and we survived the horrendous winter weather.  Folks in NJ got a big surprise last week with a huge hailstorm wrecking  havoc http://www.northjersey.com/multimedia/video/48114892.html -again illustrating the disproportion between science and reality. BTW- The House passed the American Clean Energy and Security Act, by a vote of 219-212.

The kids are off school and we are sleeping in a bit and planning for a few summer holidays.  We are  not leaving U.S. Soil- the greatest place on earth, even with all its faults.  Hawaii is out with North Korea threatening a missile attack near Independence Day.  California?  Nah, besides sitting on a major earthquake fault line, is too liberal for me.  MTV has been broadcasting all about Cancun, but we’ve been there and done that and I see no reason to support a government that can not manage to report influenza cases in a timely manner. ” Bahamas, Bermuda, Come on Pretty Mama”…The Beach Boys.  Suggestions welcomed on where to go.

Our holiday is still up for discussion as the economy just sucks and I have been tortured into hearing more about alleged pedophile Michael Jackson than necessary. 

Flipping to the net, I see Ben Bernanke the Fed Chair is feeling a bit challenged over Ron Paul’s Transparency Act that would allow an audit of the Fed.  Oh boo hoo, where did our nine trillion dollars go, why doesn’t anyone know and most importantly, what is there to hide?

Wherever and whenever we go, if we go at all-  like many Americans we go to the bank and take out what I call ‘play money’.  You know, money to play with- to buy the things we don’t really need but really want- like a Summer Vacation- preferably at the unpolluted, jelly fish free beaches.  

What if the banks go on holiday?  I am cognizant of the FDR bank holiday. 1000’s of banks never reopened in a face saving measure.  How many of our banks have no value, burdened by debt and bad mortgages?  How many banks are now owned by the U.S. Government?  How would I get to my safe deposit box if the bank was out of business?  Would it’s meager contents have any value anyways?

The hissy fit regulators are having near seizures over opening their books to public scrutiny, and once again I have to adjust antennae to tune in to exactly what the hell is going on and if bank closures could happen.

A bank holiday would certainly push the dollar’s value lower adding more rational to BRICs plan of adopting other IMF baskets of currencies.  Gold, already at a high premium would most likely increase, especially with the U.S. Mint announcing that there is a shortage of gold to produce certain coins.  The mint will continue to issue Presidential Coins and, “In God We Trust” will appear on the face of the coin starting in 2009. http://www.usmint.gov/mint%5Fprograms/%241coin/ Surely all that glitters is not gold.  I Trust in God, but the Fed, Obama, The World Bank or International Monetary Fund?

A Bank Holiday might just suit the needs of the U.S. economy according to some.  The rumor mill is that U.S Embassies are buying local currency. The Harry Schultz Letter (HSL) seems to reiterate that a Bank Holiday could occur http://www.marketwatch.com/story/schultz-paints-bleak-picture-of-future?siteid=rss&rss=1   With a grain of salt I quote its current issue, HSL reports rumors that “Some U.S. embassies worldwide are being advised to purchase massive amounts of local currencies; enough to last them a year. Some embassies are being sent enormous amounts of U.S. cash to purchase currencies from those governments, quietly. But not pound sterling. Inside the State Dept., there is a sense of sadness and foreboding that ‘something’ is about to happen … within 180 days, but could be 120-150 days.”

One commentator at  put it like this:  If true, the reason is this. Our Embassies all over the world employ millions of local nationals. Day to day operating costs are staggering, from food purchasing to fuel purchasing to utilities to meeting the local payroll. Local currency pays for all those expenses. When the USD crashes, local currencies may not be able to be purchased with USD’s. Even in a slow-mo devaluation, trying to buy enough local currency for day to day operation will be very very expensive. Should the USD become severely devalued or worthless, our Embassies will not be able to operate….http://goldismoney.info/forums/showthread.php?t=379225 Believe you me we have ambassadors everywhere http://www.usembassy.gov/.

President Obama is attempting to federalize the police and Department of Defense across the US with his civilian workforce.  If the shit hits the fan, banks go on holiday by September,civil unrest and Martial Law occurs between the money and the flu, the government will be all ready to take care of us. cough, cough.

I better get a move on somewhere and spend it while my money is still good. Yet, ” Consumer spending rose in May as benefits from the Obama administration’s stimulus plan spurred a jump in American incomes, a sign that efforts to revive the economy are starting to pay off….Stocks and the dollar dropped after China’s central bank again called for a new global currency.  http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601087&sid=a6xBheN2SW.o  Leave it to Bloomberg to give the credit to Obama and not the hard working folks of America who just want a little vacation.

Auditing The Federal Reserve is long overdue.  http://www.federalreserve.gov/oig/oig_bio.htm Elizabeth Coleman as the inspector general of the Federal Reserve of the United States and is supposed to be responsible for preventing and detecting waste, fraud, and abuse, but in a videotaped Congressional testimony, she acknowledged that she can’t account for many trillions of dollars of our taxpayers money. TRILLIONS.   Specifically she says she knows nothing about nine trillion dollars ($9,000,000,000,000) that is claimed to be unaccounted for. 

Congressman Alan Grayson of Florida on May 6th asks about the huge piles of money that the Federal Reserve is responsible for,  saying “I have to tell you honestly, I am shocked to find out that nobody at the Federal Reserve, including the Inspector General, is keeping track of [the unaccounted for trillions].” sourced at http://www.examiner.com/x-6495-US-Intelligence-Examiner~y2009m5d22-Federal-Reserve-Inspector-General-hedges-on-trillions-missing-in-Congressional-hearing

In an effort to find trillions of dollars we turn to The Federal Reserve Transparency Act, “To amend title 31, United States Code, to reform the manner in which the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System is audited by the Comptroller General of the United States and the manner in which such audits are reported, and for other purposes. http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill.xpd?bill=h111-1207 .  By my account it must have taken several years to misplace so much money, so any deceit has been going on for years. 

While the the Reserve is owned by its member banks and not by the government, it issues currency and charges interest.  These banks certainly would never want an audit, but the American people do and so does Congressman Ron Paul with over 200 of your elected officials as co-sponsors of the bill.   www.ronpaul.com continues to crash my system so enter at your own risk. 

Is there any money or gold at Fort Knox either? My bet is that there is nothing but gold dust laying in the vaults.  As Proof from The U.S. Mint on June 22, 2009- http://catalog.usmint.gov/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/CategoryDisplay?catalogId=10001&storeId=10001&categoryId=13238&langId=-1&parent_category_rn=10191&top_category=10191:

Production of United States Mint American Eagle Gold Proof and Uncirculated Coins has been temporarily suspended because of unprecedented demand for American Eagle Gold Bullion Coins . Currently, all available 22-karat gold blanks are being allocated to the American Eagle Gold Bullion Coin Program, as the United States Mint is required by Public Law 99-185 to produce these coins “in quantities sufficient to meet public demand . . . .”

The United States Mint will resume the American Eagle Gold Proof and Uncirculated Coin Programs once sufficient inventories of gold bullion blanks can be acquired to meet market demand for all three American Eagle Gold Coin products. Additionally, as a result of the recent numismatic product portfolio analysis, fractional sizes of American Eagle Gold Uncirculated Coins will no longer be produced.

America is out of gold and money and we are headed up a shit creek.  So what about silver and other metals to make bullets and guns?  Can’t seem to buy that easily either, “It’s no secret, of course, that small-denomination bullion is hard to come by and gun sales are way up, but finding out first-hand that this stuff is unavailable brings home the reality of the situation, which is that the social mood is growing darker. On the surface everything looks normal; no one is protesting in the streets, the trash is getting picked up, and elections are as orderly as ever. But the market is quietly reallocating resources as individuals insure against a systemic breakdown” http://news.goldseek.com/DollarCollapse/1245697526.php

Speaker-Rep. James Traficant, Jr. (Ohio)http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Traficant warned numerous times of looming catastrophe before being sentenced to prison for being convicted of taking bribes, filing false tax returns, racketeering, and requiring office workers to perform chores at his farm in Ohio and on his houseboat in Washington, D.C..  He is currently serving an eight-year prison term with a projected release date of September 2, 2009http://www.bop.gov/iloc2/InmateFinderServlet?Transaction=NameSearch&needingMoreList=false&LastName=traficant&Middle=&FirstName=james&Race=U&Sex=U&Age=&x=0&y=0  Traficant turned down an offer of early release to a halfway house in Youngstown, Ohio because the prison official there testified against him.  Either way government officials must be so happy to have him tucked away having said: 

“It is an established fact that the United States Federal Government has been dissolved by the Emergency Banking Act, March 9, 1933, 48 Stat. 1, Public Law 89-719; declared by President Roosevelt, being bankrupt and insolvent. H.J.R. 192, 73rd Congress m session June 5, 1933 – Joint Resolution To Suspend The Gold Standard and Abrogate The Gold Clause dissolved the Sovereign Authority of the United States and the official capacities of all United States Governmental Offices, Officers, and Departments and is further evidence that the United States Federal Government exists today in name only.” http://www.apfn.net/DOC-100_bankruptcy.htm

We need to bring accountability to the Federal Reserve now before Obama and anyone else in government spends one more dime.  Have these people been tripping over quarters to pick up pennies for so long to be so ignorant and incompetent or it it just the little old taxpayer who continues to deny we are in a financial meltdown? 

Amazingly, gold was recovered from the rubble of The World Trade Center but  http://factsnotfairies.blogspot.com/2009/06/they-hate-us-for-our-gold.html notes the convenience of it all and explores the theory that something was amiss.

“We are on the verge of a global transformation.  All we [ the CFR ] need is the right major crisis and the nation[s] will accept the New World Order.”  End Quote.  David Rockefeller: Founder and Honorary Chairman, Council of the Americas; Chairman, Americas Society; Founder, Forum of the Americas; Chairman, Emeritus, Council on Foreign Relations [CFR]; Founder and Honorary Chairman, Trilateral Commission [TC]; Chairman, The Bilderbergs.

Loose lipped Joe Biden warned of looming crisis. Between the Public Health Emergency over the Pandemic A/H1N1 Swine Flu, North Korea taking aim at Hawaii, discourse throughout the world, the events of 9-11 and the Federal Reserve misplacing NINE TRILLION dollars, the crisis are indeed adding up.  America sits in the eye of the perfect storm for the change you don’t want to believe in.

PEOPLE-FAWCETT/Backyard 07003

Sometimes the things we love just fade away and die, but not people we care about.  This plant from our backyard is actually an unusual azalea that sneaks up on you in spring; one day providing just a tease, the next day illuminating joy, and the following day dead foliage. I suppose that’s how some folks perceive movie star icons.

Today, Farrah Fawcett died at 62 years young http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-1194730/Charlies-Angels-pin-actress-Farrah-Fawcett-dies-Ryan-ONeal-losing-battle-rectal-cancer.html  and Michael Jackson died who was only 50. Farrah made her battle with cancer very public and showed her courage.

Michael Jackson died apparently of cardiac arrest. Investigators are likely to focus that he suffered a long term addiction to painkillers. Last month it was alleged he was struggling to make  a handful of the rehearsals for his comeback tour in Britain.

I am old enough to have had posters of the both of them on my door.  Who could resist Farrah’s hair?  The New York Times called it ‘a work of art that looked as if it had just come out of the sea and been tossed by the wind into a state of careless perfection’ and was ’emblematic of women in the first stage of liberation — strong, confident and joyous.’ 

Who could change the terrestrial radio channel when the songs of Michael Jackson were being played? Both had talent that can not be denied.

Fawcett’s son, Redmond remains in prison at the age of 24 for heroin possession, while Jackson’s children must be cloaked as always wondering what’s going on in the universe of weird.  The singer leaves three children; Prince Michael Joseph Jackson Jr, Paris Michael Katherine Jackson and Prince Michael Jackson II, known as ‘Blanket’. 

Hope these kids don’t grow up hating their names or dad. Ex-wife Debbie Rowe must be standing at the ready.

Whatever Fuc{ up life throws at you; pray that these two are remembered for talent not the trivial defect of being human.

Could civil unrest and Martial Law really come to The  U.S. in light of the Flu Pandemic or some other catastrophe?

This ad comes to us from the folks at MTV from a few years ago.  Why MTV, and why purpose did the commercial have?  Certainly there are better means to educate society about the Holocaust than this. 

Are the producers trying to issue a sort of public service announcement in advance of H.R. 675?  http://www.opencongress.org/bill/111-h675/text  Sec. 1585b of the  bill would  amend Title 10 of US Code to extends to civilian employees of the Department of Defense the authority to execute warrants, make arrests, and carry firearms for any offense against the U.S.  Is this just another loophole to create more federal authority and a federal police force? 

Remember The Posse Comitatus Act? It is supposed to limit the powers of the federal government to use the military for law enforcement, but it has been abandoned  for all intents as we now have active duty troops stationed on our soil to defend us against each other.  Soldiers were so kind to even help out at the Boston Marathon.  Military deployment and collaboration with local law enforcement agents is now common place since incidents like Katrina,  with check and balances against corruption gone like the city of New Orleans was. 

The John Warner Defense Authorization Act of 2007 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H.R._5122_(2006)   changed federal law so that a Governor of a state was  no longer the sole commander in chief of their state’s National Guard, a direct violation of Article I, Section 10 and Clause 3 of the Constitution. It also allowed the President to declare a public emergency and station the military anywhere in America and take control of state-based National Guard units without the consent of the governor or local authorities. It was repealed, but the Insurrection Act remains in its place amended to state:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Insurrection_Act#Repeal_of_amendments:

The original wording of the Act required the conditions as worded in Paragraph (2), above, to be met as the result of

insurrection, domestic violence, unlawful combination, or conspiracy

The new wording of the Act, as amended, still requires the same conditions as worded in Paragraph (2), above, but those conditions could, after the changes, also be a result of

domestic violence has occurred to such an extent that the constituted authorities of the State or possession are incapable of maintaining public order.
natural disaster, epidemic, or other serious public health emergency, terrorist attack or incident, or other condition

Let me adjust my antenna. A Public Health Emergency?  As in WHO declaring a Pandemic and in the U.S. “Government officials have declared a public health emergency in connection with the swine flu outbreak that has killed dozens in Mexico and sickened 20 in the U.S., said the nation’s director of Homeland Security Sunday.” http://thisweekwithbarackobama.blogspot.com/2009/04/state-of-emergency-swine-flu-video.html

DoD Civilian Expeditionary Workforce Defense Directive 1404.10 (read  PDF ) promises exactly what President Obama said, “”We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.” http://directorblue.blogspot.com/2008/10/obama-plans-paramilitary-force-for.html

A new level of leadership emerged within the U.S. Army, with the June 5 promotion of Mr. Jim Scofield as the first Defense Intelligence Senior Level Special Advisor…” As part of the civilian personnel intelligence management system, he is equivalent to a brigadier general, so now you have to say ‘Mr.’ Scofield,” she said.”DISL are recognized leaders in their field and in their specialty. This position will allow him to be involved in planning and coordinating Intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions and responsibilities not only for the Army, but theater-wide.” http://www.army.mil/-news/2009/06/09/22375-usarpac-civilian-workforce-climbs-as-scofield-is-promoted-to-disl/

Moving on up with expanded powers. Congrats.  There are a myriad of conspiracies just like this MTV video with Fema Trains ready to take non conformists away to Fema Camps. Alex Jones http://www.infowars.com/ has whole list of topics on the issue of citizen rights and the government taking away those rights.

Am I finally too old to not want my MTV anymore or just wise to the possibilities?  http://www.mtv.com/index.jhtml?extcmp=SEO_SSP_Y

 An inventory of potentially deadly pathogens at Fort Detrick’s infectious disease laboratory found more than 9,000 vials that had not been accounted for, Army officials said yesterday, raising concerns that officials wouldn’t know whether dangerous toxins were missing.   http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/06/17/AR2009061703271.html

You got to be shitting me, right?  No.

The probe began in February 2009,  just months before Swine Flu A/H1N1 came to the public eye and a Pandemic Status issued earlier this month.  Coincidence?

When the National Biodefense Analysis and Countermeasures Center at Fort Detrick is fully operational in March[ sic 2009], about 150 scientists in the lab will be tasked with protecting the country from a bioterrorist attack through prevention or containment. Another goal is to allow investigators to fingerprint biological agents such as viruses and bacteria, quickly tracing their source and catching the offender. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/10/22/AR2008102203082.html?sid=ST2009061703604

Visit Ft. Detrick on line , http://www.detrick.army.mil/ whose motto is,  “We Care.”  Apparently not enough to care about locking down the world’s worst viruses where they have their own threat status currently at :

FPCON ALPHA

Applies when there is an increased general threat of possible terrorist activity against personnel or facilities, the nature and extent of which are unpredictable.

Unpredictable?  Who would have predicted loosing track of up to 9,000 vials of who knows what kind of viruses? 

Among them the Ebola virus, anthrax bacteria and botulinum toxin, and less lethal agents such as Venezuelan equine encephalitis virus and the bacterium that causes tularemia. Most of them, forgotten inside freezer drawers, hadn’t been used in years or even decades. Officials said some serum samples from hemorrhagic fever patients dated to the Korean War. The overstock and the previous inaccuracy of the database raised the possibility that someone could have taken a sample outside the lab with no way for officials to know something was missing. http://cotocrew.wordpress.com/2009/06/22/msm-inventory-uncovers-9200-more-pathogens/

Several FredCoBio companies won funding to support product development activities with Ft.  Detrick scientists according to- http://fredcobio.wordpress.com/2009/06/12/ft-detrick-tech-transfer-funds/.  Considering most tests are with virulent pathogens we would hope that stricter security is in place.  With Obama on the heels of computerizing all health records, just maybe he can order someone to keep track of little things like viruses who research is paid for with our tax dollars.

After Fort Detrick anthrax researcher Bruce E. Ivins killed himself in July, the FBI announced that he alone was responsible for anthrax mailings that killed five people and sickened 17 others in 2001. 

Dr. Ayaad Assaad an Egyptian-born toxicologist at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the original suspect does not believe Ivins killed himself. ” You also have to tie into this the large numbers of dead microbiologists that have appeared since around the summer before these events, when the New York Times revealed the existence of the covert anthrax weapons programs run by the CIA, and that too is in the public record.” http://noworldsystem.com/2008/09/14/original-anthrax-patsy-says-ivins-didn%e2%80%99t-kill-himself/

Dead Microbiologists include: [http://www.rense.com/general39/death.htm]

Dr. Benito Que, a cell biologist working on infectious diseases like HIV, who was found comatose outside his laboratory at the Miami Medical School. He later died. Police say the attack was possibly the result of a mugging.” 

Dr. Wiley, A Harvard biologist and  expert on how the human immune system fights off infections and had recently investigated such dangerous viruses as AIDS, Ebola, herpes and influenza .  His body was found after  more than a month since his rental car was left parked on a bridge over the Mississippi River at  hydro-electric plant in Louisiana 300 miles downstream.

Dr. Vladimir Pasechnik, a former microbiologist for Biopreparat, the Soviet biological-weapons production facility was found dead.

Dr. Robert M. Schwartz was found murdered in Leesberg, Virginia. Dr. Schwartz was a well-known DNA sequencing researcher. He founded the Virginia Biotechnology Association where he worked on DNA sequencing.

The head of the microbiology sub-faculty of the Russian State Medical University, Victor Korshunov has been killed.

Dr. Tanya Holzmayer, a pioneering Russian born genomic scientist who had co-invented a tool that has helped find hundreds of molecular targets to combat cancer and HIV was found shot dead by a  former colleague .

David Wynn-Williams, an award-winning microbiologist died when he was struck by a vehicle while out jogging. In 2000 he was appointed leader of the Antarctic Astrobiology Project, which explores the effects of environmental stress at the limits of life on Earth

Are these scientists a patsy in a larger cover up? A time line of 46 mysterious deaths of scientists continues here http://www.stevequayle.com/dead_scientists/dead.scientists.chron.html and 86 dead scientists listed here http://theoneall.blogspot.com/2009/05/now-88-dead-scientists-and.html

It is not only microbiologists who are dying in extraordinary circumstances.  On June 13, 2009 the carcass of Indian famous nuclear scientist Lokanathan Mahalingam found from Kali River. The scientist had been mysteriously disappeared from the Kaiga Atomic Power Station on June 8, 2009. The Kaiga plant is located near one of the biggest naval bases, Project Seabird. http://pakistanfront.blogspot.com/2009/06/abducted-indian-nuke-scientist-found.html

“Lack of oversight and runaway spending are exacerbated by the Bush administration’s disrespect for the internationally-recognized Biological Weapons Convention. In short, reduced pressure on weapons labs to issue declarations and allow inspections means less accountability – and more opportunities for secrecy and abuse.” http://www.heatherwokusch.com/index.php?name=News&file=article&sid=67  

Indeed, does it take a genius to put two-and-two together?

Updated Novemer 1, 2009- 

A British nuclear expert who fell from the 17th floor of a United Nations building did not commit suicide and may have been hurled to his death, says a doctor who carried out a second post-mortem examination.  Timothy Hampton, 47, a scientist involved in monitoring nuclear activity, was found dead last week at the bottom of a stairwell in Vienna.  Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/worldnews/article-1224377/British-nuclear-experts-17th-floor-UN-death-plunge-suicide.html#ixzz0Ve8yrMQ8

unclesamwarPardon me, but wake the fu(k up.  We are at war and the Obama Administration is busy signing tobacco legislation giving the government control over yet another industry.  Arggh.

In an interview broadcast on Monday evening by CBS, Mr. Obama said: “This administration – and our military – is fully prepared for any contingencies.” 

The North Korean regime said last week that it could fire a missile toward Hawaii on or shortly after July 4, which is U.S. Independence Day. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/northamerica/usa/barackobama/5600854/Barack-Obama-US-fully-prepared-for-North-Korea-missile-launch.html

Unacceptable fireworks, to say the least.  North Korea test-fired a similar long-range missile on July 4, 2000 but it failed just seconds after liftoff.

The Homeland Security Advisory System is designed to guide our protective measures when specific information to a particular sector or geographic region is received.  It remains at high or orange with two more levels to go until the shit would really hit the fan. Don’t you feel secure?  http://www.dhs.gov/xinfoshare/programs/Copy_of_press_release_0046.shtm  Meanwhile a flu pandemic has been declared by WHO .

What does it take to raise the threat level in the U.S.? North Korea is ready to launch a missile toward Hawaii or Alaska, Iran is out of control, Swine Flu is spreading with the UK Telegraph reporting half the population could be infected and yet,  our threat level remains the same.  This isn’t Halloween and Orange should not be the flavor of the day for American’s safety.

22 June 2009 07:00 GMT, the breakdown of the number of laboratory-confirmed cases is given in the following table and map from http://www.pandemicflu.gov/ updated today shows more than 52,000 cases with nearly half of them occurring in the U.S.  http://sharing.govdelivery.com/bulletins/GD/USHHS-7BCC3.  A report from Canada has the total confirmed cases at 6,457. http://news.xinhuanet.com/english/2009-06/23/content_11586485.htm

Borders open, business as usual for most except in Hawaii where the deployment of Theatre High Altitude Area Defense- http://www.army-technology.com/projects/thaad/  weaponry for “support” in case of a North Korean launch, is somewhere out to sea.  Yeah, that’s business as usual. No reason for a threat level increase?

THAAD weapons, coupled with a radar system nearby, are designed to shoot down ballistic missiles.  Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD), formerly Theater High Altitude Area Defense, is a United States Army project to develop a system to shoot down short- and medium-range ballistic missiles using a hit-to-kill approach. The missile carries no warhead but relies on the kinetic energy of the impact. THAAD was designed to hit Scuds and similar weapons, but also has a limited capability against ICBMs. http://chrisabraham.com/2009/06/21/links-for-2009-06-21/ What if North Korea’s missile has a nuclear war head on it?  One might shoot it down, but does the nuclear warhead explode anyways killing millions in radio active poison?

Ground-based defenses in the state of Alaska are also ready, Mr Gates said in The Telegraph article.  Meanwhile, a US navy destroyer, the John S. McCain, has been tracking a North Korean ship that has been previously linked to illicit missile-related cargo, according to US defense officials. 

State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley said about North Korea last week, “We will be continuing to do everything we can to really put pressure on their military capability”, and “if there are miscalculations, they will be by the other side, he emphasized:”I think that’s why we are concerned about the North Korea provocations, that at some point they might, in fact, do something intentionally or unintentionally that sparks a larger crisis.””That is why,” he added, “we have repeatedly condemned the actions that they’ve taken as being irresponsible, provocative, but also dangerous.”http://www.politicsdaily.com/2009/06/22/nearly-60-years-after-the-war-north-korea-still-playing-danger/

Well thanks for condemning the actions of a rogue government.  I feel so much better. And O- say it isn’t so, ” The Obama administration cut funding for missile interceptors scheduled to be deployed. Rep. Mike Turner (R-OH), the ranking member of the Committee’s Strategic Forces Subcommittee, offered an amendment to restore $120 million in funding to allow the Department of Defense to continue fielding 44 interceptors and complete construction of Missile Field 2 in Alaska.” http://pajamasmedia.com/blog/under-the-radar-dems-inexplicably-block-missile-defense/

Denied by House Democrats.

What am I doing about it?  Assuming there are no miscalculations and there is enough money to blast North Korea’s weapon- we are praying, drinking, swimming….enjoying the freedoms afforded to me that so many have died for.  Smoke ’em while you got em. 

Oh yeah, we’re washing our hands to avoid the flu- as if it matters.

More than likely we are seeing reduction in the A/H1N1 Swine Flu exposure rate among children because school’s out for summer recess in most parts of the U.S.   By September children will begin returning to the classroom and the cesspool of germs. Schoolchildren could be first in line for swine flu vaccine this fall- and schools are being put on notice that they might be turned into shot clinics.   

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is urging school superintendents around the country to spend the summer preparing for that possibility, if the government goes ahead with mass vaccinations, “If you think about vaccinating kids, schools are the logical place,” Sebelius told The Associated Press. 

In taking away more parental rights, it is the government making choices, not the parents choice in taking the child to the doctor.

The Obama Administration’s Propaganda and PR Team is preparing an all out “trust your government and health officials campaign,” asking American’s to get not one, not two, but three flu shots.  Lest we forget how many people trusted the government in the 1976 Swine Flu outbreak that infected vaccinated recruits at Ft Dix?

Recent Department of Veterans Affairs Research Advisory Committee on Gulf War Veterans’ Illnesses Scientific Findings and Recommendations validated concerns that “studies have indicated that the current anthrax vaccine is associated with high rates of acute adverse reactions.” in a report The Anthrax Vaccine: A Dilemma for Homeland Security by  Lt. Col. Thomas Rempfer, USAF – The Journal of the Naval Postgraduate School Center for Homeland Defense and Security – Wednesday June 17, 2009. Past problems with the Department of Defense anthrax vaccine currently impact Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Health and Human Services policy going so far as to explore the probability, “and the troubling possibility that the 2001 anthrax letter attacks were a deliberate and successful effort to sustain a program that federal investigators determined was on the verge of failing.” http://www.hsaj.org/?fullarticle=5.2.3  Trust the government vaccine policy?

The public would not be as keen to line up it’s children at a military installation for a shot; but if a shot is administered at school, certainly it must be safe.  Hardly.  “Do not take seasonal flu vaccine if you are told that it could help prevent this brand new Swine Flu variant. It won’t do a thing to prevent this flu. What it will do is serve up new genetic material to the Swine Flu…” warns Dr. Patricia Doyle, PhD http://www.rense.com/general85/vacc.htm

Scientists hardly know the efficacy rates or potential for side effects and vaccine manufacturers are largely protected from lawsuits.  We have seen time and time again with numerous reports linking the alarming increase in autism to 1 out of 150 children, with little remediation.  http://www.fightingautism.org/idea/autism.php

Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP), which was established by Congress in 1986. Under this program, a no- fault compensation program gives vaccine manufacturers broad liability protection, while at the same time assuring adequate compensation for those injured by vaccines.  http://oversight.house.gov/documents/20041018110107-30762.pdf By offering compensation, aren’t manufacturers admitting by default, that vaccines can cause injury?

Two weeks ago, a case of rare polio was been detected in a four-and-a-half-year-old boy in Upper Assam’s Dibrugarh district in India after receiving the Polio vaccine.  http://www.telegraphindia.com/1090610/jsp/northeast/story_11086301.jsp 

“A vaccine-derived poliovirus is a rare strain, genetically changed from the one contained in oral polio vaccine. The oral polio vaccine contains a weakened version of poliovirus that activates an immune response in the body and prevents the infectious viral disease from affecting the central nervous system and causing paralysis. In very rare instances, the virus in the vaccine can mutate into a form that can paralyze and has the capacity for sustained circulation.”

Sustained circulation? Genetically changed?  Caused by the Polio vaccine?

 It is expected that the novel influenza virus A(H1N1) will have sustained circulation for sometime and continue spread in the human population, and most likely in the pig population too according to http://www.promedmail.org/pls/otn/f?p=2400:1001:3239379255573737::NO::F2400_P1001_BACK_PAGE,F2400_P1001_PUB_MAIL_ID:1000,77985. Will we see a resurgence for a sustained of Polio next? What kind of genetic changes could we expect/H1N1 to mutate into on its own, let along with individuals who got vaccinated?

Swine influenza is not a food-borne zoonosis. Moreover, there is no evidence suggesting that this novel virus behaves in a different way from the other swine influenza viruses and spreads to humans via food containing pork or pork products. With regard to infection of pigs via feeding, account should be taken of the intra-species feeding ban. This is also supported by the initial data on experimental infection of piglets that have become available in recent weeks, indicating infection of only the respiratory tract and no other tissues and absence of detectable viraemia. 

Only in the respiratory tract of pigs?  Only?  Noting the ban in the intra-species feeding, perhaps now would be a good time to become a vegetarian as we humans are intra- species meat eaters. If the virus is only in the respiratory tract would it be fair to say it is being transmitted via airborne not only in pigs but perhaps in humans as well? 

Every day during the school year, more than 30 million children receive free or reduced-price lunches under the federal National School Lunch Program, and 10 million get breakfast under the National School Breakfast Program. Pork is included in many of the meals served through those important programs. http://www.porkmag.com/news_editorial.asp?pgID=768&ed_id=7604

Line the children up, give them a swine flu shot, feed them bacon for breakfast, trust the government, Obama and your local school system. 

Hardly.
