Body Scanners

The Dutch government says it will immediately begin using full body scanners on flights to the United States to prevent future terrorist attacks like the Christmas Day attempt by a young Nigerian. http://www.lansingstatejournal.com/article/20091230/NEWS01/312300004/1001/NEWS

So what’s been the hold up in America?  There is no head of the TSA, they are more worried about the Union than security, and the ACLU and other civil liberties groups are having a hissy fit.  For one of the first times I can ever recall, I am all for more government regulating who gets to fly and am willing to give up some privacy to ensure the safety of air travel.  OMG, is it the year end holiday brain mush that just wrote more government??

 

From 2004.  “The Bush administration has decided to scale back and delay the debut of a vast airline passenger screening program until after the presidential election, federal officials said yesterday. The decision comes after months of meetings with airline officials and lawmakers who pressed the administration to drop more controversial elements of the program, known as Computer Assisted Passenger Pre-Screening Program, or CAPPS II. ” http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A53320-2004Jul15.html

For 6 years this technology has been out there, ready for use and could have prevented the uni-bomber and the underwear bomber from trying to blow up airplanes! 

On October 1, 2009 – “The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has revealed plans to install 150 body scanning machines for primary security screenings at airports across the country. The American Civil Liberties Union strongly opposes the expanded use of this invasive technology, which amounts to a virtual strip search and reveals strikingly graphic images of passengers’ bodies, including intimate medical details like colostomy bags or evidence of mastectomy. ….  By expanding the use of body scanning technology, the TSA is backing away from numerous assertions that it would use these machines only for secondary screenings. There are no laws or regulations limiting how the TSA uses these virtual strip searches, only policies they choose to adopt, and nothing to prevent the TSA from making it mandatory for all passengers to submit to these invasive and embarrassing searches, having their privacy stripped away in order to board a plane.

 The following can be attributed to Christopher Calabrese, ACLU Legislative Counsel for technology and privacy.

 “This new body scanning technology is a frontal assault on personal privacy, with virtual strip searches revealing private body parts and intimate medical details. This degree of examination amounts to a significant – and for some people humiliating – attack on the essential dignity of passengers that citizens in a free nation should not have to tolerate. Passengers expect privacy underneath their clothing and should not be required to display highly personal details of their bodies in order to fly.

Having a scan seems more friendly than a body cavity search.  If you find it humiliating to have a body scan simply don’t get on a plane.  Drive or stay home, one more seat for someone else on these over booked flights.  Take all the pictures you want of me when I fly.  So what if I got a glass eye, a pacemaker, a big penis with piercings, man boobs, a fat ass, a bag to pee in or all of the preceding on my body, whatever.  Get over yourself, you are a human and only God is perfect.  All of us have some kind of weird thing about ourselves, none of us should have the capacity to blow up a plane over the non use of technology that can stop this from happening.  Mandatory or selective, this is one case where I could care less- so long as it prevents the plane my family is getting on from falling from the sky.

The Associated Press says that “At least 19 U.S. airports have the scanners,” at http://www.suntimes.com/news/metro/1963465,ohare-airport-full-body-scanners-security-122909.article noting that Chicago’s O’Hare will be getting them mid-year. 

I would prefer not to have my fat, x-ray-ed ass posted on the Internet though.  Some sort of deterrent for illicitly copying and distributing the photos should probably be in order, with penalties severe enough to serve as a deterrent.  I wonder who stores the scan at the end of the day, is it now a permanent record, would an agency need a search warrant to use it in a court of law, etc., still some questions linger.  

I do see how the Pre-screening programs could be opportunities to find criminals.  Um, if that is a by product of better technology- so what?  Behind thousands on your child payments? A bad guy out on parole an not reporting?  Wanted on a felony?  Too frickin’ bad, don’t get anywhere near an airport unless you are a law abiding citizen.  Flying is a privilege not a right.   We’re not talking about an overdue library card or a bunch of parking tickets.  Look, finding criminals is not the intention behind scanning some one’s behind for problematic devices, but if it gets them away from being another potential public threat- then so be it. 

Take the extra billions in stimulus and stimulate the economy by making it safer.

Smile, someone takes your picture every time you walk into Wal-Mart, Target, Kohl’s, etc.  Got a Sam’s Club Card- your picture is on that.  Our local grocery store, in order to cash a payroll check, now requires not only a photograph but a fingerprint of two fingers, on two hands.  Every parent/grandparent/guardian/teacher and janitor at our local school is required to undergo a background check and be fingerprinted before walking in the door.  

If the private sector can match up your face to what you buy, to how often you visit, then the government ought to take every preventable measure to stop terrorism in it’s tracks  NOW, or hire the programmers at Wal-Mart to do it for them.

UPDATED August 5, 2010.  Now we know who stores the scan at the end of the day, the TSA!  The U.S. Marshals Service too. 

The TSA apparently requires all airport body scanners it purchases to be able to store and transmit images for “testing, training, and evaluation purposes.” (PDF)

A 70-page document (PDF) showing the TSA’s procurement specifications, classified as “sensitive security information,” says that in some modes the scanner must “allow exporting of image data in real time” and provide a mechanism for “high-speed transfer of image data” over the network.

The TSA maintains that body scanning is perfectly constitutional: “The program is designed to respect individual sensibilities regarding privacy, modesty and personal autonomy to the maximum extent possible, while still performing its crucial function of protecting all members of the public from potentially catastrophic events.”

President Obama will release his birth certificate while on his Hawaiian vacation!  You believe that, I’ve got some carbon credits to sell, cheap! 

Interrupting his vacation in Hawaii for the second time, instead he spoke about the Christmas attempted airplane bombing.

“Had this critical information been shared, it could have been compiled with other intelligence, and a fuller, clearer picture of the suspect would have emerged,” Obama said in a brief statement to the media. “The warning signs would have triggered red flags, and the suspect would have never been allowed to board that plane for America.”  Officials said Obama chose to make a second statement in as many days because a morning briefing offered him new information in the government’s possession about the suspect’s activities and thinking, along with al-Qaida’s plans.http://www.breitbart.com/article.php?id=D9CTB5BG0&show_article=1

While in Hawaii, President Obama ought to put an end to all the birther arguments that he is not a usurper, but we all know that is not going to happen.  As he mentions in his press statement- “intelligence for a clear picture,” the red flags still exist regarding his citizenship.  Numerous court cases have challenged President Obama’s natural born citizenship under Article II, Section 1 of the United States Constitution that says that the president be a “natural born citizen.”  Only he can make them go away.

Following the continuing legal onslaught is The Right Side of Life, which offers a current listing of pending lawsuits.  http://www.therightsideoflife.com/current-lawsuit-listing/ 

Hawaii officials haven’t helped matters, issuing statements claiming that they have President Obama’s authenticated copy- alas, not an original as they made the switch to electronic documents years ago.  So what kind of document has fact check been presenting all this time?  A forgery? What are they claiming to have seen? http://www.factcheck.org/elections-2008/born_in_the_usa.html

Berg, Wells, Donofrio, Martin and others have sought to use the courts in a reasonable, mostly respectful  manner to require President Obama to produce his birth certificate.  Obama continues to waste the courts time and money to keep it sealed.  What is there to hide.  The Truth?

Self  proclaiming the, “World’s Leading Obama Eligibility Challenge Web Site,” is Orly Taitz, esq.,  http://www.orlytaitzesq.com/?p=7074 who has apparently gone off the deep end asking:

What is the real intention of this Kenyan, Indonesian communist usurper? Is it to provide security for us or to destroy our security? Judge for yourself. Seeing targeted destruction of our economy, our security, dissipation of American jobs, massive corruption in the Government, Congress Department of Justice and Judiciary, it might be time to start rallies and protests using our second amendment right to bare arms and organise in militias.” http://www.orlytaitzesq.com/?p=7074

Rallies and Protests with guns? Organize militias?  The Tea Party mentality of today does not advocate violence against anyone, only peaceable change mainly by voting out officials.  Maybe she posted drunk on eggnog? Whatever credibility she had, is gone.

With props to http://citizenwells.wordpress.com , directing us to http://puzo1.blogspot.com/2009/12/what-is-putative-president-obamas.html  Mario Apuzzo, Esq., offers 30 legitimate fed flags of concern regarding his citizenship, and closes with the following statement:

Hence, if Obama was not born in the United States, under the Fourteenth Amendment he is neither a United States citizen by birth on United States soil nor one by naturalization. (There is no existing evidence that Obama was ever naturalized.) Nor would he qualify to be a United States citizen by any act of Congress by being born abroad to a United States citizen parent. If this scenario were proven to be true (being neither a born nor a naturalized citizen), it can be reasonably argued that Obama is an undocumented alien. Obama has refused to release his identity documents to the public which causes such theories to exist. It is this reason which shows the importance of the American people being able to access Obama’s records (birth certificate, travel, education, and employment records) to intelligently learn his exact citizenship status. Surely, the United States cannot have a possible undocumented alien be its President. People must keep pressing Obama that he releases his personal documents so that they may at least learn that the President is at least a “citizen of the United States” which again still does not make him an Article II “natural born Citizen.”

Read the whole Washington Post investigative journalism thingie, on the background of the bomber and you too, can join the millions of others who now know more about the college years of the Undi-bomber than they do those of the President of the United States. via http://www.smalldeadanimals.com/archives/013005.html 

The entire issue of natural born citizen is quite the legal conundrum.  Among other sites, the folks at http://therightwing.net/index.php/2008/12/09/the-natural-born-citizen-case-explained/  have an easy explanation of the natural born citizen clause and its merit to our laws for Presidency. 

Imagine the merits or detriments that could occur if President Obama himself, personally went to collect his birth certificate with the news media in tow.  That would make a wonderful way to begin the New Year, with truth, honesty, integrity and transparency. 

Happy New Year anyway.

No Shark Fishing, North Carolina

Squalene From Sharks

National Geographic is making note that,” Vaccines being made to protect people from swine flu may not be so healthy for threatened species of sharks.   That’s because millions of doses of the pandemic H1N1/09 vaccine contain a substance called squalene, which is extracted from shark livers. via http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2009/12/091229-sharks-liver-oil-swine-flu-vaccine.html

Worrying more about shark extinction than cross mutations of animal dna into humans, Nat Geo says, “”There are several very disturbing issues associated with use of shark-liver-oil squalene,” said Mary O’Malley, co-founder of the volunteer-run advocacy group Shark Safe Network.  “The deepwater sharks targeted have extremely low reproductive rates, and many are threatened species.” (sic http://www.sharksafenetwork.com/ )

The drug company (sic, GlaxoSmithKlein)  is currently looking at non-animal squalene sources, including olive oil.  But at the moment, she said, “we are unable to find an alternative of high enough grade.”

Thankfully, vaccines containing squalene have not yet been approved for use in the U.S., even though they are being distributed world wide.   Whether being attacked by a shark or injected with some of it’s squalene, the concern is more for the animal than the human being. 

Shark attacks do occur but here’s the stats on your chances of being bit from them are really pretty small, http://www.flmnh.ufl.edu/fish/sharks/statistics/beachattacks.htm 

Drowning and other beach-related fatalities 1 in 2 million
Drowning fatalities 1 in 3.5 million
Shark attacks 1 in 11.5 million
Shark attack fatalities 0 in 264.1 million

I’ve swam undisturbed with black tip sharks and other carnivores and would do so again before taking my chances with being injected with squalene.  We are not experts on inter-species transmissions of viruses be we do know they occur as evidenced by the recent pandemics.  

Optaflu®  is the first influenza vaccine made in a mammalian (DOG) cell line, rather than chicken eggs.  https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/10/12/h1n1-swine-flu-vaccine-grown-in-dog-cells/  Drug manufacturers are likely using cells infected with cancer, growing them in chickens, culturing them in pigs, monkeys, dogs, even plants, and then encouraging you to, “Just get your damned vaccine.”  http://www.infowars.com/just-get-your-damn-vaccine/ said. 

There is something called a Shark Virus that attacks computers and if you need help with that ck out http://vil.nai.com/vil/content/v_1083.htm

Ironically enough:

Sharks are blessed with a very simple immune system, which allows them to fight infection and disease far better than humans. The immune system of sharks is being researched and studies to determine why it is that sharks appear to be immune to most diseases. It is not true that they are immune to all, but they do have an amazing immune that fights it off in a manner that surpasses the human ability to ward off infection and disease. The major difference between the immune system of a shark and a human is that sharks have two accessory immunological structures that humans do not possess. They are the epigonal organ and the Leydig’s organ. The epigonal organ is located beneath the kidneys, and the Leydig’s organ in within the esophagus. These organs are only found in sharks, making these sea creatures even more unique. Studies have concluded that the epigonal organ is where T-cells are differentiated, playing a huge role in the immune system of the shark. via http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/427504/is_the_shark_immune_to_all_diseases.html

Is being injected by squalene a reason for the possibility of an increased immune capacity against H1N1 and other known viruses?    Squalene seems to stimulate the immune system nonspecifically. Yet: 

Your immune system recognizes squalene as an oil molecule native to your body. It is found throughout your nervous system and brain. In fact, you can consume squalene in olive oil and not only will your immune system recognize it, you will also reap the benefits of its antioxidant properties.The difference between “good” and “bad” squalene is the route by which it enters your body. Injection is an abnormal route of entry which incites your immune system to attack all the squalene in your body, not just the vaccine adjuvant.

Your immune system will attempt to destroy the molecule wherever it finds it, including in places where it occurs naturally, and where it is vital to the health of your nervous system, according to award-winning investigative journalist Gary Matsumoto, who explains there is a “close match between the squalene-induced diseases in animals and those observed in humans injected with this oil: rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis and systemic lupus erythematosus.” via http://blogs.healthfreedomalliance.org/blog/2009/08/06/more-on-the-adjuvant-squalene/

Should we turn to shark fin soup?  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shark_fin_soup Oh it is so tasty, but nasty to kill only for the dorsal fin and not use the rest of the animal as a food source, and it is so wrong the methods used to harvest them. [ OMG, a little environmentalism shines through] Shark fin soup may cause sterility in men due to mercury content and because of its high mercury level, the FDA recommends pregnant women and young children avoid eating shark fins.  It is apparently okay for some nations and most likely, eventually the U.S. to inject you with shark squalene- targeting women and children first for vaccines of course. Can you spell infertility?

In this frigid, climate change bullshit that is going on while we sit with snow covered ground and freezing temps, we can’t help but think of warmer weather and Jimmy Buffett- 

Fins to the Left

Can’t you feel ’em circlin’, honey
Can’t you feel ’em swimmin’ around
You got fins to the left, fins to the right
And you’re the only bait in town
Oh oh
Oh oh
You got fins to the left, fins to the right
And you’re the only girl in town.

Lyrics via http://www.mp3lyrics.org/j/jimmy-buffett/fins/

The circle of science isn’t so scientific as a good Margarita or a cold Land Shark®  or Corona®  beer by the beach…take your chances in the water and with a squalene vaccine.

The EPA has come up with, this interactive map showing information on enforcement actions in the U.S. at www.epa.gov and cases from 2009. They include civil enforcement actions taken at facilities, criminal cases prosecuted under federal statutes and the U.S. Criminal Code, and cases in which EPA provided significant support to cases prosecuted under state criminal laws.

Add locations for air, water, land and criminal enforcement actions to the map. Then zoom in a few times to pin point an exact location. Click on the indicator to obtain additional information on the environmental enforcement case. See “Questions About the Maps” for additional information and needs accommodations due to a disability.

Our tax dollars at work.  Now what did they spend the money recovered from the litigation on?

“EPA settles the vast majority of its enforcement actions and almost all of these cases are settled without an admission of liability. The agreement to pay a penalty as part of a settlement does not necessarily reflect an admission of liability for environmental violations by the company”.

So basically the EPA issues a fine and you admit no guilt!  That’s one way to be innocent until proven guilty, just pay the fine and make it go away.

From the most severe of violations to small one’s like “Deandre Brisco was sentenced to 24 months probation after being convicted at trial for knowingly and negligently discharging waste motor oil into a storm drain in a parking lot in Mexico, Missouri.”

Wonder how much that case cost the taxpayer?

Peak air travel season, and the U.S. DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY Transportation Security Administration changing the aviation rules for passengers, at least until December 30, 2009.

On Dec. 25, 2009, an individual on board Northwest Airlines Flight 253 set off a device and was subdued by passengers and crew. TSA wishes to acknowledge the heroic efforts of those individuals.  {sic- did they forget his name?}

As a result of this incident, TSA has worked with airline and law enforcement authorities, as well as federal, state, local, and international partners to put additional security measures in place to ensure aviation security remains strong. Passengers traveling domestically and internationally to U.S. destinations may notice additional screening measures. http://www.tsa.gov/press/happenings/dec25_guidance.shtm

New security measures introduced by the US Transport Security Administration for all flights into the US include pat-down searches at the airport gate, physical inspection of all bags and requiring passengers to stay in their seats without access to any personal items or overhead lockers for the final hour before landing.   http://www.smh.com.au/travel/travel-news/us-orders-body-searches-after-botched-airline-attack-20091228-lgxg.html  

So much to that little part in the Constitution that protects you from illegal search and seizure. 

The following is the complete text of the US DHS security directive as implemented by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) with text provided by Flying with Fish at http://boardingarea.com/blogs/flyingwithfish/2009/12/27/tsa-security-directive-sd-1544-09-06-the-fallout-from-nw253/

Someone did not do their job to prevent him from getting on the plane in the first place.  We got lucky this time, maybe next time someone will just shove something up their ass for an in-flight incident one hour before landing.  “Luckily, the explosive that was sewn into his underwear — and only caused a minor fire which passengers and crew were able to put out — is extremely hard to ignite. Pentaerythritol tetranitrate, or PETN, is among the “most powerful of explosives,” according to the Times, and was the same explosive that was smuggled aboard by the infamous (and also thwarted) 2001 “shoe bomber,” Richard Reid.  Read more: Averted Northwest Airlines Bomb Was Powerful, But Very Hard to Ignite — Daily Intel http://nymag.com/daily/intel/2009/12/averted_northwest_airlines_bom.html#ixzz0b0QS5Rcl  Wonder if he was wearing boxers or briefs?  Either way we hope his balls got burnt.

For a well educated young man, As a member of an uppercrust Nigerian family, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab received the best schooling, from the elite British International School in West Africa to the vaunted University College London- http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/12/27/umar-farouk-abdulmutallab_n_404512.html, thank God he was too stupid to have done the job right.

A day later, another man from Nigeria is arrested on the same flight 253 from Amsterdam.  The FBI claims the two incidents were not related but having locked himself in a bathroom for over an hour, someone finally broke the door down.  Note he did not have any luggage with him and http://www.debbieschlussel.com/14318/passengers-were-right-fbi-lied-about-second-man-are-they-lying-about-second-flight/ points our more irregularities in the story.

Department of Homeland Security Secretary, Janet Napolitano on Sunday:

“The system worked,” said the Department of Homeland Security Secretary, Janet Napolitano.

Janet Napolitano on Monday:

“Our system did not work in this instance,” she said on NBC’s “Today” show. “No one is happy or satisfied with that. An extensive review is under way.”

Profile away we say, check your lists a little better, even Santa knows who naughty and nice. “In a story that won’t surprise most, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab has told the FBI that there are many young men just like him in Yemen waiting to attack the planes within or going to the United States.” http://chattahbox.com/us/2009/12/28/umar-farouk-abdulmutallab-tell-fbi-more-like-him-in-yemen/

The 23-year-old Nigerian man who claimed ties to al-Qaeda was charged this Saturday with trying to destroy a Detroit-bound airliner, just a month after his father warned U.S. officials of concerns about his son’s religious beliefs.http://apnews.myway.com/article/20091227/D9CRDL300.html

Imagine the balls it takes to alert authorities to the possibility your own kid is an assassin http://www.rightpundits.com/?p=5226 saying , “According to the local newspaper “Leadership Nigeria” Umar Mutallab, former chairman of First Bank and father of the alleged terrorist, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, had alerted the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), the INTERPOL and the Nigerian Intelligence Agency (NIA) to his son’s weird behavior, especially after he sent a disturbing text message from Yemen. Umar Jr relocated to Yemen by late October this year, had sent a curious text to his parents – according to the report.

His father notified not one, but three governments of his son’s odd behavior and possible threat to the U.S.  Did anyone pay attention?  Nope.  Imagine the sadness in his family. If anyone of the three were watching him shame on them for not thwarting this cowardice act.

23 years old.  23 and what do you think you know?  You don’t know shit, you little shit ass. He should have been out having a beer and chasing….well, whatever.

Abdulmutallab appeared on the Terrorist Identities Datamart Environment database maintained by the U.S. National Counterterrorism Center, said a U.S. official who received a briefing. Containing some 550,000 names, the database includes people with known or suspected ties to a terrorist organization. However, it is not a list that would prohibit a person from boarding a U.S.-bound airplane. His name was added to the database in Novembers, according to an administration official who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the investigation that is ongoing….  

Virginia-based group that monitors militant messages called attention Saturday to a Dec. 21 video recording from an Al-Qaida Counterterrorism operative in Yemen who warned of a looming bombing in the U.S.

Attempting to kill hundreds on a plane, in the skies, on the ground?  Just where does someone even get  pentaerythritol- the explosive?  Now this formerly wealthy prick can’t afford an attorney and my tax dollars and yours, by the grace of democracy are going to provide one for him. 

Just WTF is with our Terrorist Identities Datamart Environment database-that we never heard of until today.  There were unheeded warnings and texts days ahead of time?  Who runs the Terrorist Identities Datamart Environment- TIDE  and Terrorist Identities group ? http://www.nctc.gov/docs/Tide_Fact_Sheet.pdf.  A bunch of but nutts who can not seem to correlate data between departments apparently.

Ringing any 9-11 bells?

From the classified TIDE database, an unclassified, but sensitive, extract is provided to the FBI’s Terrorist Screening Center, which compiles the Terrorist Screening Database (TSDB). This database, in turn, is used to compile various watch lists such as the TSA’s No-fly list, State Department’s Consular Lookout and Support System, Homeland Security’s Interagency Border Inspection System, and FBI’s NCIC (National Crime Information Center) for state and local law enforcement. via http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Terrorist_Identities_Datamart_Environment

Throw in Flopping Aces, http://www.floppingaces.net/2009/12/27/napolitano-system-worked-even-tho-bomb-made-it-through-security/

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said Sunday that the thwarting of the attempt to blow up an Amsterdam-Detroit airline flight Christmas Day demonstrated that “the system worked.”

Asked by CNN’s Candy Crowley on “State of the Union” how that could be possible when the young Nigerian who has been charged with trying to set off the bomb was able to smuggle explosive liquid onto the jet, Napolitano responded: “We’re asking the same questions.”

Napolitano added that there was “no suggestion that [the suspect] was improperly screened.”

The system worked? You have to be joking. How Napolitano claimed it worked when a man was able to get a bomb on board a plane and almost set it off -were it not for a bad detonator and some heroic passengers?

 B I A T C H, YOU SHOULD BE FIRED. If for nothing else the disgraceful comment that the system worked.  IT FAILED.  YOU FAILED.

A half a million people made a list because they have some subjective hate for America and have presented some sort of evidence that they are willing to risk their lives in the process of killing Americans.  Some made this list in error- but this one asshole  gets on a plane to America and attempts detonation. 

How many on this TIDE database are boarding today?  Is it an Illuminati government pulling the strings for wars?  We now call bullshit.  There is no one but a bunch of disorganized government employees covering their ass just like in 911.  There may be the technology to read a license plate from space, know what kind and how many cigarettes you smoke and beers you drink, but if no one reports a terrorist driving the truck what use it is it.  Execute McVeigh before all the facts are in and it all goes away.  Except the memories.

“The president certainly has taken steps in his time in office to reorient our priorities as it comes to fighting that war on terror,” Gibbs told NBC. via http://www.google.com/hostednews/afp/article/ALeqM5jmFQzQ0FKifgsloXRVO9_Sym-U1g  REORIENT OUR PRIORITIES?  Give us a break.  Taking steps?  Baby steps perhaps.

Just sickening. 

God Bless America and God dangit:  if God doesn’t, somebody better step up to the plate to protect America NOW. Falling between the cracks is a pain in every one’s ass and puts us all at risk.  No amount of Tide is going to be able to clean up the spilled blood of innocent Americans.

Loving our country, just questioning those who run it.

Norway Light Spiral

Christmas Tree With Tesla Style Spirals

Using a 30-foor Tesla coil ‘tree’ and a super-long camera exposure, an Aussie physician and physics junkie created this electrifying display of holiday cheer at http://www.popsci.com/science/gallery/2009-12/very-tesla-christmas

Definitely cool.  Funny how those spiral light visions look similar to the spiraling light that occurred over Norway earlier this month. 

“The light then “exploded” into a ring of white fire, according to UK tabloid The Sun, prompting true believers on forums around the world to declare the moment “First Contact”. via http://www.news.com.au/world/norway-wormhole-is-first-contact-claim-ufo-watchers/story-e6frfkyi-1225808892785

We wrote previously at https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/12/11/norway-lights-make-ufo-believers-alien-dna-in-humans/ that “The light was a UFO alright, but that unidentified object has been claimed to be a failed missile test by the Russians from somewhere in the Arctic.  No one so far has found any debris which we find odd.  When the space shuttle went to hell on re-entry, there were fragments found in numerous states.  More on the lights at yesterday’s musing at https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/12/10/norway-lights-russian-missile-blamed-evidence/ 

The light spectacular which lasted over 10 minutes was blamed on a failed Russian Missile? 

Anyone buying that BS?

Over at A Paranormal View http://theparanormalview.podomatic.com/entry/2009-12-02T14_32_54-08_00 is a podcast on some of Tesla’s technology with a conspiratorial view. 

http://prophecywatcher.blogspot.com/2009/12/fake-rapture-project-blue-beam.html Takes a look saying. ” Project Blue Beam is a special operations program that is tied into other exotic physics projects like the HAARP program in Alaska. HAARP is a program that in very simplistic terms shoots high energy beams of scalar physics technology (Nikola Tesla technology) that cooks the upper atmosphere of the planet. One of the many possible uses of this technology involves the capability to project images of massive size out into the sky. In fact, Project Blue Beam is a program designed to project religious images into the sky in a hologram presentation. It’s like television without a box providing a visual stimulus without any apparent electronic receivers so that anyone who is sighted could see it…

We’re not sold on the idea of projecting religious images, but we are all witnessing something and sure as shit, is no failed missile.

We asked at  https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/04/06/is-haarp-causing-the-earthquakes-volcanoes-to-erupt-and-the-ice-to-melt/ Is this web of global financial control at the hands of the Rockefeller’s and Rothschild’s.  Could Tesla’s scientific discoveries be what the global political monetary elite need to further enhance The New World Order?  Would a secret government use HAARP to do dastardly deeds? 

Red Ice Creates wrote at http://redicecreations.com/article.php?id=9204 The military’s scientific fringe has toyed with weather manipulation and geo-engineering for years. Recently, ideas like adding iron to the ocean, or covering the Arctic with dust, have been floated in a bid stave off global warming. But the Pentagon’s also got a long track record of plotting to screw with enemy climates and improve their own operational abilities.   Now, Darpa’s got a new target for geo-hacking science, and if they can make it work, we might see modern firearms making way for weapons of the mythological variety. The out-there research agency is soliciting proposals that would harness control over “the natural mechanism of lightning initiation” by coming up with a way to launch manmade lightning bolts, and prevent or redirect natural lightning strikes — and their accompanying destruction.

Anyways, cool Christmas Trees.

Merry Christmas!  The gift of inspirational words….

Life is too short to wake up with regrets.  So love the people who treat you right.  Love the ones who don’t because you can.  Believe everything happens for a reason.  If you get a second chance, grab it with both hands. If it changes your life, let it.  Kiss slowly.  Forgive quickly.  God never said life would be easy.  He just promised it would be worth it.
