The C-130 Hercules, a four-engine turboprop aircraft, is the workhorse of the military and they keep flying over the farm. We’re aviation nuts and even have a grass landing strip so maybe we look up more than the average Joe. The farm keeps us outside more often than most also.

We live within 150 miles of 4 military bases but in the last month we’ve seen more and more c-130’s. One was so flipping low, the kids were waving at it and swear we saw it do a wing dip. A big hello from a C-130.

Last night there were 2 of them flying north. Just this morning another flyby heading north again. Low elevations. Maybe they just changed flight paths between bases? Maybe flight exercise? Maybe taking ground pix? Maybe we’re being spied on?

The good news is that they are not spraying chemtrails- that we can tell!

Keep looking up.

Now what the heck is a C-130, C130 doing a flyby for in the middle of a thunderstorm?

GULF OF MEXICO OIL SPILL AND AFFECTED COASTLINE CLOSED

The media blackout continues.  The airspace over the coastal waters around the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill have been closed by the FAA. 

Pursuant to 14 CFR section 91.137(a)(1) temporary flight restrictions are in effect for deepwater horizon/mississippi canyon (mc252) incident cleanup and reconstitution operations…All aircraft operations are prohibited except those flights authorized by ATC, routine flights supporting offshore oil operations; federal, state, local and military flight operations supporting oil spill recovery and reconstitution efforts; and air medical and law enforcement operations. http://tfr.faa.gov/save_pages/detail_0_5100.html 

The closing of airspace does occur from time to time for everything from a military air show, to the arrival of a VIP.  Other recent airspace closures can be found at http://tfr.faa.gov/tfr2/list.html.  Most recently, much of Europe airspace was closed and blamed on the often invisible ash cloud from the Iceland Volcano.  We saw airspace closed in the entire U.S. immediately after the events of 9-11.

So why close the airspace over an oil spill? 

We know the oil spill is huge, and we know that BP and the AirForce is spraying COREXIT, the dispersant.  The release says, “For additional information on air operations within the deepwater horizon TFR see website: https://1afnorth.Region1.Ang.Af.Mil/deepwater_spill/default.Aspx This link is a military site that offers no public access.  So much for taking a little plane ride over the area.

https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2010/05/24/bp-tells-epa-to-shove-it-oil-spill-cleanup/ we noted that the EPA had asked BP to find an alternative to COREXIT after nearly a month of aerial spraying.

April 30, 2010. WASHINGTON (AP) — Two Air Force planes have been sent to Mississippi and were awaiting orders to start dumping chemicals on the oil spill threatening the coast, as the government worked Friday to determine how large a role the military should play in the cleanup.

The C-130 Hercules cargo planes, specially designed for aerial spraying, were sent Thursday from the Youngstown Air Reserve Station in Ohio, said a spokesman there, Master Sgt. Bob Barko Jr. http://www.chem.info/News/2010/04/Environmental-Controls-Air-Force-Ready-to-Spray-Oil-Spill/

While we no longer have Posse Comitatus anymore with active U.S. Military Troops on U.S. soil, we now have BP hiring private security contractors to protect the oil spill, cleanup efforts and keep onlookers away.

In this video, the security firms name was revealed as Talon Security..  http://www.talonprivatesecurity.com/ They appear to be wearing sidearms and flack jackets.
 
 
“This wouldn’t be the first time a private security firm made an appearance in a Gulf disaster,” Wired’s Adam Rawnsley writes. “When Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans, the Department of Homeland Security and a number of private firms, fearful of reported widespread violence and chaos, turned to private security contractors like Blackwater and ArmorGroup International to protect their property.” via http://www.wired.com/dangerroom/2010/06/bp-hires-mercs-to-block-oily-beaches/?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter
Even Anderson Cooper of CNN,  was warned by FEDERAL WILDLIFE OFFICIALS to avoid doing a bird clean up interview and when pursuing images of the clean up area, was denied access by a NATIONAL GUARD Troops. 
 
 
Now we have the National Guard, The FAA, and private contractors all denying access.  Who and what authorizes BP, and a mercenary security firm like Talon Security to have the right to provide security in the Gulf in the first place?  Should privatized corporate law enforcement be a surprise. 
 
Representative Gene Taylor (D-MS 4th) an 11th term Democrat from Mississippi, in a letter to President Obama asks:
 
05.01.10
Coincidence
The BP oil fire is projected to cause severe damage to four shoreline states. Cause? Was it an accident?  Possible sabotage? Other?…Re: Recent BP fire – result oil spill 2010.
Should the federal government demand and regulate all oil employees who work on the oil rigs?  Should the federal government provide security on and around oil production rigs? It is my opinion that leasing oil production companies do not have the capacity to provide U.S. security. http://www.congress.org/congressorg/bio/userletter/?id=348&letter_id=5130467066
 
On May 5th, 2010, “Taylor flew over the spill in a Coast Guard plane on Saturday and said it was “not as bad” in an interview with a Biloxi TV station. He also said the slick looked like “chocolate milk” and appeared to be “breaking up naturally.”  http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/96217-wicker-defends-rep-taylors-bp-oil-spill-analogy-to-chocolate-milk
Chocolate milk does not require the coast guard, AirForce, private security personnel and closed airspace.  Relying only on BP data is BS.  BP appears to have control over Nat’l Incident Mngt Systems data.

What this means to the non-GIS layperson:

1) The current configuration and process allow BP to limit or slow down the flow of information about the extent of the disaster to the government, the public and law enforcement, which I believe is against the spirit and letter of NIMS*.

2) The current process allows BP to treat GIS datasets as proprietary information. It is my understanding that public agencies, like The US Fish and Wildlife Service and The Louisiana National Guard, are literally submitting the only copy of agency field data directly to a BP GIS server behind the corporate firewall. Examples of these data are; dead bird and fish locations with photos, boom deployment and engineered construction, dates, along with other descriptive information and photos.

3) The GIS information is essential to the recovery of public resources, and some data belongs to US taxpayers, not BP. BP is paying for the hardware and collection of these GIS datasets, yet it is my understanding that the data belong to the people of the United States. BP must not be allowed to protect these data as if they were a proprietary product.

4) State Emergency Operation Center staff, Parish EOC staff, and other Emergency Responders and Recovery Specialists do not have access to these GIS datasets, contrary to all NIMS guidance, protocols and principles. The effort to slow down the flow of information is at the expense of the containment and cleanup effort of the responders and is in our opinion, suspect behavior by BP.

5) The Federal On Scene Coordinator at ICP Houma, US Coast Guard Captain Ed Stanton, standing with USCG Rear Admiral James Watson, approved the National Incident Management System (NIMS) compliant design, and ordered the first database and server. That server was received by BP, and placed behind the BP firewall.

Conclusion–At the very least, per NIMS, there must be redundancy of GIS information managed jointly, and fully accessible to both the FOSC and the SOSC. Technology allows implementation of this design to occur instantaneously and automatically. http://www.theoildrum.com/node/6593

According to the European financial database Amadeus, JPMorgan Chase is the No. 1 holder of stock in BP. That distinction also has earned the Wall Street bank the title of “Global Ultimate Owner” of the oil giant, as it owns 28.34% of BP.  Let us remind you, JPMorgan got $25 BILLION in bailout money. http://www.cnn.com/2008/US/12/22/bailout.accountability/index.html
 
President Barack Obama declared war on the Gulf Oil spill in his first nationally televised address from the Oval Office.  Obama wagged a finger in emphasis and insisted that oil giant BP will pay for the extensive environmental and the economic damage to the Gulf region. Duration: :01:32.
 
 
Who’s really going to pay?  Follow the money all the way back to you and me.

As Arizona’s immigration policy does what the federal government won’t, The Department of Homeland Security has now declared a Terror Alert along the Mexico U.S. border.

The Department of Homeland Security is alerting Texas authorities to be on the lookout for a suspected member of the Somalia-based Al Shabaab terrorist group who might be attempting to travel to the U.S. through Mexico, a security expert who has seen the memo tells FOXNews.com. http://www.foxnews.com/us/2010/05/26/terror-alert-mexican-border/

It is akin to an all points bulletin and searching for a needle in a haystack.  While your looking for terrorists would you mind stopping a few of those Mexican illegal immigrants who are still flocking to border states like Arizona and Texas. Obama and other elected officials have publicly admitted to not reading the bill, yet cry wolf and ignore the problems.

An administration official confirmed to Fox News that Obama plans to deploy the National Guard troops as needed.  Mr. President, with all due respect, “as needed” would be right the frig now.  Sending some 1,200 troops is a flea on a camel’s ass- insignificant.

Sen. Jon Kyl, R-Ariz., said he’s heard that “the 1,200 border patrol troops are, in effect, desk jobs.” “They aren’t boots on the ground at the border,” he said, adding that “they were not intended to be deployed to the border.” http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2010/05/25/obama-deploy-national-guard-troops-mexico-border/

Will the National Guard be stationed right on the line, with bullets in their guns and the authority to defend themselves? Almost certainly not. The border is a “combat zone,” says T.J. Bonner, head of the Border patrol agents’ union, too dangerous even for Border Patrol.  http://usactionnews.com/2010/05/americans-fleeing-border-invasion-obama-dithers/

It has gotten so bad that Americans are leaving fleeing their homes to get away from the border.

The fence building has stopped. 

Farmers are being killed on there own lands.  Robert Krentz and his dog died while sitting in his all terrain vehicle by an illegal immigrant who escaped back to Mexico.  http://www.americanfreepress.net/html/sheriff_tells_border_town_218.html 

Police officers are being shot.

Pinal County sheriff’s Lt. Tamatha Villar says the deputy suffered a superficial wound to his abdomen after being shot with an AK-47 assault rifle Friday afternoon.

Villar says the deputy was doing smuggling interdiction work and found bales of marijuana in the desert. He then encountered five suspected illegal immigrants, two armed with rifles, and was shot. http://hotair.com/archives/2010/04/30/arizona-deputy-shot-with-ak-47-by-suspected-illegal-immigrant/

Shot by an AK-47.  I doubt the police or any farmer is packing an AK-47 for protection and enforcement. Don’t go and blame the 2nd amendment and gun retailers.

Bill McMahon, deputy assistant director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, revealed last July that of the 100,000 weapons recovered by Mexican authorities during their drug war with the cartels, only 18,000 were determined to have been manufactured, sold, or imported from the United States. http://pajamasmedia.com/blog/he-didnt-just-lie-about-arizona-calderon-fibbed-about-assault-weapons-too/?singlepage=true

We’ve got the war on drugs, war on terror, war in Afghanistan, war in Iraq and a czar for everything except the U.S. Mexican border and the Deepwater Horizon Oil Clean up.  Oh wait, we don’t need another czar, we need a President who does something to fix the problems. NOW.

We asked again where is our commander-in-chief?  Hanging out in Chicago this Memorial Day weekend.  https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2010/05/26/national-guard-not-immigration-border-patrol/

We are getting the “The change you can believe in,” alright.  Changes like the President of the United States of America acquiescing to a foreign leader’s interference in the affairs of sovereign Arizona and bowing to Kings and Queens.  He is holding his first press conference in over a year later today. http://voices.washingtonpost.com/postpartisan/2010/05/what_obama_has_to_do_at_todays.html

The Modular Aerial Spray System on Air Force Reserve Command C-130 aircraft

The President just finished  a brief tour of touchy feel good town hall type visits to places like Youngstown, Ohio. http://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2010/05/18/obamas_remarks_on_the_economy_in_youngstown_105631.html Home of the U.S. Air Force Reserve C-130 Hercules of the 910th Airlift Wing at Youngstown Air Reserve Station, this is the only base in America that has aerial chemical sprayers.  Yes, chemtrails.

These planes are being loaded with dispersants to quell the oil spill in the Gulf.  Obama is scheduled to visit New Orleans on Friday, but his handlers may alter his plans due to the area being, ” hazardous to his health.”

The U.S. Coast Guard has pulled commercial fishing boats from oil cleanup efforts in Breton Sound off the Louisiana coast after several people became ill.  The Coast Guard says crew members on three vessels reported nausea, dizziness, headaches and chest pains Wednesday afternoon. Four people were hospitalized, including one who was flown to a hospital.

The Coast Guard told all 125 commercial vessels that were helping clean up spilled oil to return to shore. Medical workers evaluated the crew members as a precaution.  Breton Sound is about 30 miles southeast of New Orleans. http://www.foxnews.com/us/2010/05/27/coast-guard-pulls-fishing-boats-breton-sound-crew-members-cleaning-oil-sick/?loomia_ow=t0:s0:a4:g4:r5:c0.000000:b0:z5

While in Youngstown, Obama said, “..sometimes in Washington, everybody is spending all their time arguing about politics and you lose track of the folks who sent you there in the first place. And so it’s important for me to meet you directly and hear your concerns and your hopes and your dreams.”

If Obama really wanted to get in touch with us little people, he should head to Arizona. What ever happened to the, “Keeping America’s Promise” campaign? http://www.ohiodailyblog.com/content/obama-quotkeeping-americas-promisequot-bus-tour-starts-akron-saturday Keeping America’s promise is also the name of democrat John Kerry’s Politial Action Campaign-  http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=273×16265

The Deepwater Horizon Spill in the Gulf Coast has become a cluster cluck.  President Obama, a month after the leak started has decided that we now need a special commission headed by Ken Salazar, while Lisa P. Jackson, EPA Chief is headed back to the region for her third trip. http://dailycaller.com/2010/05/23/epa-chief-to-return-to-gulf-coast-to-monitor-spill/

The oil continues to flow, although BP is allegedly siphoning off some of the oil underground.   BP claims 5,000 gallons per day since April 13 and finally a month later on May 20, it has been decided that the federal government will come up with its own determination of how much oil is gushing in the Gulf.  Perhaps it should take its own water samples too.  

“You know, it’s a shared responsibility, lots of things went wrong. There were multiple redundancies and fail-safe systems that were supposed to be in place that didn’t work,” said Salzar.   http://www.upi.com/Top_News/US/2010/05/20/Salazar-Independent-oil-leak-rate-coming/UPI-41791274391760/  

The EPA gave BP it’s okay to use chemical dispersants in an effort to corral and degrade some of the oil last week.  By Thursday, the EPA issued a directive for BP to stop using the controversial Corexit dispersal chemical within 24 hours.   https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2010/05/21/dispersants-epa-stops–  

BP’s response was a pungent reminder of who is in charge, and it most certainly is not the EPA or and branch of the government.  BP issued a terse reply, saying it would continue to use the controversial chemical Corexit despite the directive.  BP officials believe that the leading alternative product, Sea Brat could pose a bigger risk over the long term.   

C-130H Aerial Spraying

NotanotherCONspiracy points out that the government has been spraying “stuff” for years and likely could, would, and may have sprayed the Gulf to attempt to break up the oil.  

A U.S. Air Force Reserve C-130 Hercules from the 910th Airlift Wing at Youngstown Air Reserve Station, Ohio, sprays Dibrom, a pesticide approved by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency …http://www.notanotherconspiracy.com/search/?q=chemtrails  

Democratic strategist James Carville and MSNBC anchor Chris Matthews, two reliable supporters of President Barack Obama, have issued withering critiques of the administration’s handling of the Gulf oil spill.  Carville, the famously outspoken Louisianian who was a chief political aide to Bill and Hillary Clinton, told CNN’s Anderson Cooper on Thursday that the administration’s response to the spill has been “lackadaisical” and that Obama was “naive” to trust BP to manage the massive clean-up effort. Video and full text at http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/05/21/obama-faces-new-wave-of-c_n_585620.html  

  

“The government should have stepped in and not just taken BP’s word,” declared Wayne Stone of Marathon, Fla., an avid diver who worries about the spill’s effect on the ecosystem….As simple as it may seem, the law prevents the government from just taking over, Allen said. After the 1989 Exxon Valdez spill in Alaska, Congress dictated that oil companies be responsible for dealing with major accidents – including paying for all cleanup – with oversight by federal agencies.  http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/05/22/frustration-mounts-as-oil_n_585913.html  

Oversight by Federal Agencies- how laughable. Really, what’s one more law or promise broken by the government?  

We do not have transparency from BP nor the EPA, nor do we have control over the cleanup.  For heaven’s sake, some environmental group decided that throwing human hair on the slicks would help. BP has declined the offer. http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=127041062&ft=1&f=1025 (Human hair does help keep deer away from gardens though.)  

BP chief Tony Hayward told the Associated Foreign Press, “everything we can see at the moment suggests that the overall environmental impact will be very, very modest.” 

Could he be right?  So far, reports are saying 154 sea turtles, 12 dolphins and 23 sea birds have been found dead. via http://www.huffingtonpost.com/edward-f-blizzard/bp-officials-downplay-imp_b_581787.html  

In January and into February, I was there to witness –  

 
By comparison, the death count of sea critters so far seems small.  With nearly 20% of the Gulf closed to fishing, a fish kill would most likely never be documented in the open waters, only what is witnessed on shore.
It doesn’t just take a cold snap or an oil spill to close beaches.  How about a birds nest?   A shorebird called a tern laid a single egg in Cape Hatteras National Seashore.  The result:
 
Three favored off-road beaches and fishing spots – Cape Point in Buxton, South Ocracoke and the Bodie Island Spit at Oregon Inlet – were effectively closed to prepare for expected shorebird breeding. Large buffer zones preclude access by pedestrians and vehicles. http://hamptonroads.com/node/464263
 
One little egg is going to devastate tourism in parts of the Outer Banks of North Carolina.  Maybe the state can ask for a bailout like every other whiny piss-ant governor.  Florida has asked BP for $35 million dollars for tourism advertising.  So help me if BP pays one dime for an ad, I am going to flip my lid.   How dare Florida, who’s beaches so far haven’t been impacted, ask in the first place?

Late as usual, we all made it dressed in red, white and blue to our little podunk parade.  One of our elected officials also flies C-130’s, so we got a treat of a fly by at maybe 1500 feet overhead.  AWESOME.

Just one of thousand’s of parades, but the best part comes at the conclusion. The flag raising, playing of the National Anthem, and the 21 gun salute which sounded more like cap guns still all convince me that there is no greater country than America and how much a privilege it is to live here to be able to attend even a hokey ceremony.

The village mayor and a local Reverend did the speeches honoring all who have served and both reminded us that Memorial Day is about remembrance.  President Obama in another major gaffe had this to say- “On this Memorial Day, as our nation honors its unbroken line of fallen heroes — and I see many of them in the audience here today — our sense of patriotism is particularly strong.”  Dead people in the crowd, huh? 

Noting that Memorial Day is not Veteran’s Day – http://politicalderby.com/2009/05/25/obama-needs-to-google-memorial-day/ had this to say, “Hey, weren’t you the one that was considering a plan to make veterans pay for their medical treatment?  At any rate, I find it disheartening that he would lump us all in the category of ‘not paying respect to veterans’ to cover up his own shortcomings in that department. Newsflash Obama-wan: There are many of us who hold the utmost respect for those who have worn the uniform, served, and given his life for the cause of freedom. Many of us already celebrate Memorial Day (not Veteran’s Day) by honoring the brave men and women who have died to protect our freedoms and liberties. And there are many of us who would rather spend federal money on our military than converter boxes for digital television.”

“We at American Grand Jury are still asking the presumed president to stand up, become a man and quit hiding. Before you Mr. Obama are the charges of Eligibility and Treason. You speak of honor and integrity to the our fighting men yet you hide the truth from them as no president has ever done before.” http://www.oilforimmigration.org/facts/?p=1886

Our flags are flying, the pool is open, beers are cold, hot dogs ready, pasta salad made.  I wonder if the Obama’s will be eating Kobe beef burgers, maybe lobsters from Boston?  Salad from the thousand dollar organic White House Garden?

Americans are to observe the National Moment of Remembrance beginning at 3:00 p.m. local time on Memorial Day.  I wonder if  Janet Napolitano is worried about all those military extremists on this most special of days.

God Bless America.  Don’t get drunk and drive.
