Posts Tagged ‘predicting earthquakes’

Boobquake, the event to create an earthquake is set for Monday, April 26, 2010.  

Just when you think you’ve heard every conspiracy theory regarding the volcano’s and earthquakes, along comes a Muslim cleric saying that woman who reveal their breasts can cause earthquakes.  You couldn’t make this stuff up.

Tehran (April 24, 2010): A senior Iranian cleric opined that social decency would avoid earthquakes, the Tehran press reported Saturday.

Ayatollah Ahmad Janati, head of the senate-like Guardian Council, said that although no one can predict quakes, moral lifestyles filled with prayer and the giving of alms could prevent seismic activity.

The remarks by Jannati followed comments last week by cleric Ayatollah Kazem Sedighi suggesting that social immorality – such as improper women’s clothing and extramarital sex – would increase the probability of earthquakes.

Women in Iran are required by Islamic authorities to wear a head scarf and long gown to hide hair and body contours.http://www.thesundaily.com/article.cfm?id=45966

Self described Jen McCreight, is a liberal, geeky, nerdy, scientific, perverted atheist feminist trapped in Indiana who runs the blog blaghag .  http://www.blaghag.com/2010/04/in-name-of-science-i-offer-my-boobs.html 

In the name of science she is offering her boobs to disprove that breasts cause earthquakes and wants women around the world to help her disprove the Ayatollahs statements. So far 159, 266 people have agreed to participate in the event on facebook.

I have a modest proposal.

Sedighi claims that not dressing modestly causes earthquakes. If so, we should be able to test this claim scientifically. You all remember the homeopathy overdose?

Time for a Boobquake.

On Monday, April 26th, I will wear the most cleavage-showing shirt I own. Yes, the one usually reserved for a night on the town. I encourage other female skeptics to join me and embrace the supposed supernatural power of their breasts. Or short shorts, if that’s your preferred form of immodesty. With the power of our scandalous bodies combined, we should surely produce an earthquake. If not, I’m sure Sedighi can come up with a rational explanation for why the ground didn’t rumble. And if we really get through to him, maybe it’ll be one involving plate tectonics.

So, who’s with me? I may be a D cup, but that will probably only produce a slight tremor on its own. If you’ll be joining me on twitter, use the tag #boobquake! Or join the facebook event!

 

Breasts Soap Dispenser

In an attempt to not objectify women she later wrote, “I just want to apologize if this comes off as demeaning toward women.”  She also promises to do some follow up on her research.

And to the scientists who are concerned with my methods – don’t worry, I fully plan on doing some statistics after the event. I know many earthquakes happen on a daily basis, so we’re looking to see if Boobquake significantly increases the number or severity of earthquakes.

Science definitely won’t be boring for Boobquake Monday.

It should come as no surprise that scientists are warning Haiti that more earthquakes could be coming to Haiti in the coming months, as we first reported here https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2010/01/27/earthquake-prediction-for-haiti-and-sumatra/

PORT-AU-PRINCE (Reuters) – Haiti should be preparing for another major earthquake that could be triggered by the catastrophic one last month which killed up to 200,000 people and left the capital Port-au-Prince in ruins, experts say.

Teams of geophysicists, who have been tracking movements in the fault line that slashes across Haiti and into the Dominican Republic, came to the nation last week to measure changes in the Earth’s crust after the 7.0-magnitude quake on January 12. http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSTRE61033A20100201

Preliminary calculations by his group show the January 12 quake could be the “little kick” that sets off another temblor along the 186 mile fault where two regional tectonic plates have been scraping together for millions of years.  http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSTRE61033A20100201

A 186 mile fault line, that mainly devastated only one major city?  That’s what I call a kick in the ass.

Oh pleeazzze, give me a break.  These poor people in Haiti are as prepared as they are ever going to be for the time being.  There is nothing to fall on their heads or trap them.  Like in the game of dominoes, it has already all fallen down.  Haiti was warned two years ago and still it did nothing, nor could it have.  

Haiti’s biggest worries no longer come from underground; but the threat of military, humanitarian and climate interference. 

President Bellerive told CNN in an interview broadcast on Sunday that he was worried about the risk of illegal adoptions and child trafficking. “We have already reports of a lot of trafficking (of children) and even of organ trafficking,” he said, while citing no specific cases.  Yeah, like those scary Baptists taking kids to an orphanage.http://www.haitifeed.com/2010/02/01/haiti-orphan-rescue-mission-adoption-or-child-trafficking-christian-science-monitor/ 

Mark Fried from Oxfam in a recent podcast http://www.oxfam.org/haitiquake  has hit the nail on the head- what are all these people going to do when the rainy season starts in April?  Besides getting being wet, there are going to mudslides due to the destruction blocking the rains natural runoff patterns.   Say nothing of the possibility of fire from thousands cooking under makeshift sheets and tents. 

These people have more to worry about than another shimmy shake.

Scientists can detect a minuscule solar flair from the sun but they claim they can not predict earthquakes? http://www.swpc.noaa.gov/today.html

Now researchers believe they can possibly predict additional quakes in Sumatra and Haiti.

The earthquake that rocked Padang, western Sumatra, in September last year, killing more than 1000 people, was not the “great earthquake” that earth scientists are waiting for.  In fact, it may have made the next massive earthquake more likely, according to University of Ulster earthquake expert John McCloskey. That is the key conclusion of a paper published last week in the journal Nature Geoscience, the authoritative earth sciences research journal. http://alertnet.org/db/blogs/62815/2010/00/26-121510-1.htm

Going on to say:

For some years now scientists have been warning of the build up of stress on one of the earth’s great plate boundaries to the west of Sumatra in Indonesia. For more than 200 years the collision between the Indian ocean plate and the Asian plate has stored an enormous amount of energy. “It’s just like slowly drawing a bow. For hundreds of years the energy is stored as the two tectonic plates bend and deform. Then, in just a few seconds all this energy is released generating a massive earthquake and sometimes flexing the seafloor to create a tsunami.

In a few seconds, Haiti was demolished on January 12, 2010 with no warnings of preceding tremors, and no tsunami after. 

A team funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) is returning to Haiti this week to investigate the cause {emphasis mine) of the January 12, magnitude 7 earthquake there.  The geologists will collect crucial data to assess whether the quake could trigger another major event to the east or west of Port-au-Prince, Haiti’s capital. Eric Calais, a Purdue University geophysicist leading the team, said that most aftershocks occur within weeks of the initial quake and that the team urgently needs to get to the site to make a detailed assessment before crucial geological information disappears.  http://www.sciencecodex.com/scientists_return_to_haiti_to_assess_possibility_of_another_major_quake

Where is the geological information disappearing to?  Investigate the cause?  Natural science would tell us that the plates beneath the ocean shifted- and that has been the official cause of every other earthquake reported in the world.  No government or entity has ever come forward to say, “Hey look what we can do.”

Clearly the San Andreas Fault in California, U.S., remains quite visible.

The San Andreas Fault has not disappeared

According to the theory of continental drift, the earth’s surface is divided up into a dozen or so massive, rigid plates that rest on the earth’s more fluid mantle. Some of the plates, the oceanic plates, are under the ocean, and the others, which are much thicker and heavier, are the continental plates.  Convection currents running along the top of the mantle, created by the upwelling of new crust in some places and the sinking of old crust in others, move the plates at roughly 2.5 centimeters per year (Fig. 2). Baja California, for instance, is drifting quite rapidly––it is moving at the same rate in which your fingernails are growing! Collisions between plates result in the deformation of the earth’s crust and the uplift of mountains, and cause severe earthquake and volcanic activity as well. http://www.biog1105-1106.org/demos/106/unit08/2a.continentaldrift.html via Cornell University.

What makes Haiti so different, besides the fact it sits near some of the deepest waters of the world?   Could it be its close approximation to Puerto Rico’s negative gravity?

Above ground, scientists from Rochester Institute of Technology are sweeping the leveled city with high-tech imaging integrated into a small aircraft.

Funded by the World Bank (sic, imagine that)  and in collaboration with ImageCat Inc., the five-day flight is meticulously mapping the disaster zone to aid in crisis management and eventual reconstruction of the city…The LIDAR capability detects and measures collapsed buildings and standing structures damaged by the earthquake. At the request of the U.S. Geological Survey, Faulring is using LIDAR to map the fault line to estimate how much the earth moved. This information is critical to refinement of earthquake-risk prediction models. http://www.rit.edu/news/?v=47281

Prediction modelling is one thing, but this assumes only environmental issues and not man-made technology can alter the earth’s plates or atmosphere with the potential to cause earthquakes.  If you don’t think HAARP, EISCAT, Project Blue Beam and the host of other Tesla like technology couldn’t possibly cause an earthquake, I have water for you to drink from the moon.  We all know there is water there, we just bombed it as proof. 

Comment, you know you want to!

The Haiti Earthquake was imminent.  Did they know it and not tell anyone?

“Recent research and observation have shown that the process of seismogenesis is not completely random — earthquakes tend to be localized in space, primarily on plate boundaries, and seem to be clustered in time more than would be expected for a random process.”  http://www.nature.com/nature/debates/earthquake/equake_frameset.html

Scientists who detected worrisome signs of growing stresses in the fault that unleashed this week’s devastating earthquake in Haiti said they warned officials there two years ago that their country was ripe for a major earthquake. Their sobering findings, presented during a geological conference in March 2008 and at meetings two months later, showed that the fault was capable of causing a 7.2-magnitude earthquake — slightly stronger than Tuesday’s 7.0 quake that rocked the impoverished country.  http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100115/ap_on_re_us/us_haiti_earthquake_warning;_ylt=Am6c.rU89Pyw2Tu4jMA7kDOs0NUE;_ylu=X3oDMTNzbW9zdXNoBGFzc2V0A2FwLzIwMTAwMTE1L3VzX2hhaXRpX2VhcnRocXVha2Vfd2FybmluZwRjY29kZQNtb3N0cG9wdWxhcgRjcG9zAzMEcG9zAzEzBHB0A2hvbWVfY29rZQRzZWMDeW5fdG9wX3N0b3J5BHNsawNzY2llbnRpc3Rzd2E

24 hours before the Haiti Quake this earthquake warning was issued by Astrotometry at  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WwHwzqZg9M4 

Northern Hemisphere Earthquake Watch Until January 16th.  Entering a period of intense earthquake activity.  Astrotometry of recent holes in the solar corona indicate upcoming inconsistencies in the Earth’s hypertime translation. During the period January 11th to January 16th a very strong seismic event above 7.7 in magnitude is probable and several seismic events above 6 in magnitude are expected in the Northern Hemisphere.  Based on correlated cloud patterns, in order of probability, the quake-prone watch regions most likely to be effected are:

Indonesia
California
West Central Asia
Southeastern Europe (near Greece or Italy)
Hawaii

It’s probable that more than one region in the Northern Hemisphere will be effected during this period.  A separate coronal hole indicates a quake of lesser magnitude in the Solomon islands region in the Southern Hemisphere near the end of the watch period or shortly after.

http://neic.usgs.gov/neis/qed/  lists earthquakes that occurred in the same period, including Haiti.  

Pretty damned accurate, eh?

Giampaolo Giuliani, an expert at the Gran Sasso national laboratory, had  warned the authorities a week before the earthquake about some seismic activity he had been detecting in Central Italy but he was ignored by all but a few believers. https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/04/08/italy-earthquake-warnings-by-giampaolo-guiliani-dismissed/

There’s a 100 percent chance of an earthquake today. Though millions of persons may never experience an earthquake, they are very common occurrences on this planet. So today — somewhere — an earthquake will occur.http://earthquake.usgs.gov/learn/topics/100_chance.php

Let us remind you that the U.S. government was running drills- allegedly in the event a hurricane were to hit Haiti, just the day prior to the quake.  In light of the United States government SOUTHCOM and the Defense Department’s European Command,  ”preparing for a test of the system in a scenario that involved providing relief to Haiti in the wake of a hurricane. After the earthquake hit on Tuesday, Demay said SOUTHCOM decided to go live with the system.”   https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2010/01/22/haiti-earthquake-conspiracy-southcom-drill-prior-to-quake-reminiscent-of-911/

Another prediction or coincidence?

iran small globe

Tsunamis, Typhoons, Flooding, Earthquakes, Droughts, Floods, Diseases and Pestilence.  It is beginning to feel like the Book of Revelations from the Bible. We are once again reminded of :

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

Coming from a place where for all intents and purposes, it’s leader is a whack job who wants to destroy Israel, is little old Iran.  The country might want to rock and roll with its newly discovered nuclear weapons capability, but today Iran was rocked hard in the latest of a series of world wide earthquakes.

http://earthquake.usgs.gov/eqcenter/recenteqsww/Quakes/us2009micc.php#details

Earthquake Details

Magnitude 5.2
Date-Time
Location 31.763°N, 49.675°E
Depth 10 km (6.2 miles) set by location program
Region WESTERN IRAN
Distances 105 km (65 miles) ENE of Ahvaz, Iran
135 km (85 miles) ESE of Dezful, Iran
210 km (130 miles) NE of Abadan, Iran
465 km (285 miles) SSW of TEHRAN, Iran

 That would put the time at  Sunday, October 04, 2009 at 05:50:50 PM (EDT) – Eastern Daylight (New York, Toronto). 

All is not quiet in American Samoa either who also was dealt a 5.4 magnitude quake earlier today.

In the Philippines after being blasted with a typhoon for the last few days, got shaken up rather abruptly in its clean up and search and rescue mission when a  6.6 mag hit today.

MAP  6.6   2009/10/04 10:58:01    6.721    123.480  630.5   MORO GULF, MINDANAO, PHILIPPINES

 I am far from an expert.  Is there patterns of destruction all across the globe?  Are they recognizably connected? 

What is causing the sudden and drastic increase of incidences and magnitude?

Far removed from Iran, yesterday Taiwan had a 6.1 magnitude quake.

I’d expect an increase in volcanic activity and sure as shit Russia and Indonesia are reporting new volcanic activity.   http://www.volcano.si.edu/reports/usgs/index.cfm?content=worldmap 

North America, battling an H1N1 Swine Flu Pandemic has also had its fair share of rattling.  Yesterday, October 3 saw 38 earthquakes in California.  The largest in magnitude (148 miles) W (276°) from Las Vegas was a 5.2 on the Richter scale.  Did the slot machines pay out a little extra feeling the vibrations from the earth?

The eastern coast was not spared either. 

A micro-earthquake hit North Carolina Saturday.  The temblor measured magnitude 2.5 and was situated at 35.301°N, 82.500°W. The hypocentral depth of the earthquake was set at 3.2 miles. The earthquake occurred in the same vicinity as a 3.1 magnitude earthquake in December of 2007. http://www.opinionbug.com/5308/micro-earthquake-hits-north-carolina/

 “The earthquake killed over 1,000 on the island of Sumatra in Indonesia, the typhoon killed over 300 in the Philippines, Vietnam and Cambodia, flooding killed over 200 in India, and a tsunami left at least 129 dead in Samoa.”http://humanitarianrelief.change.org/blog/view/your_earthquake_typhoon_flooding_tsunami_and_drought_mashup

“But that’s not to say they’re completely unrelated. A study published just yesterday in Nature found that the earthquake that triggered the monstrous 2004 tsunami was so destructive that it weakened fault lines around the world─reaching all the way to California’s San Andreas Fault, 5,000 miles away. Since then, the researchers say, there has been an “unusually high” number of earthquakes around the world, suggesting that especially big quakes might beget more quakes. What’s more, a California Institute of Technology researcher who studies seismic activity in Asia notes that a cycle of earthquakes in the region that started in 2007 is likely to produce an even bigger disaster sometime in the coming years. ” http://blog.newsweek.com/blogs/wealthofnations/archive/2009/10/01/two-earthquakes-in-two-days-coincidence-connection-conspiracy.aspx

The way the Earth’s crust and plates are expanding and contracting recently, it may not take years.  It may just be days until we see an earthquake of unparalleled proportion.

Two earthquakes, two locations with in 24 hours of each other, both with magnitudes near 8.0.  What is going on?

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

Magnitude 7.6 – SOUTHERN SUMATRA, INDONESIA 09/30/09  http://earthquake.usgs.gov/eqcenter/recenteqsww/Quakes/us2009mebz.php

Magnitude 8.0 – SAMOA ISLANDS REGION 09/29/09 http://earthquake.usgs.gov/eqcenter/recenteqsww/Quakes/us2009mdbi.php

Update on workd earthquakes USGS http://earthquake.usgs.gov/eqcenter/recenteqsww/Quakes/quakes_all.php 

A series of tsunamis smashed into the Pacific island nations of American and Western Samoa killing possibly more than 100 people, destroying villages and injuring hundreds, officials said on Wednesday. U.S. President Barack Obama declared American Samoa, a U.S. territory, a major disaster…  http://www.nytimes.com/reuters/2009/09/29/world/international-us-quake-pacific.html?_r=1&em   and a 7.6 just shook Indonesia.

There are is no current Tsunami watch, warning or advisory in affect http://www.prh.noaa.gov/ptwc/.   Tsunami warnings generally indicate that one is required to run like a bat of hell.  Coast lines up to 1000 kilometers away can be subject to not only giant waves, but changes in sea levels and strong or unusual currents. http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,557462,00.html has a short report on earthquakes and tsunamis and how they work.The Indian Ocean tsunami on December 26, 2004, which killed about 230,000 people across 11 countries, was the worst on record.http://thewere42.wordpress.com/2009/09/30/tsunami-warning-signs-facts-in-wake-of-samoa-quake/ has some interesting facts too.

 Castle_Bravo_Blast

 

The earth’s plates shift all the time naturally, but what else could cause the earth to shake, rattle and roll?  HARRP and its Harmonics, CERN messing around with particle physics testing, and underground nuclear testing must have some effect and could appear as an explanation of an increase in the frequency and magnitude of earthquakes.

The official HAARP facility is located in Gakuna, Alaska.  This theory claims that HAARP could be used as directed-energy weapon, weather control, an earthquake induction device and/or for mind control http://www.viewzone.com/haarp11.html It is working in excellent condition if the increase of earthquakes is any indication. 

Project Opera collects neutrinos from the CERN particle physics lab in Geneva to the Gran Sasso underground in central Italy and around the world. The Gran Sasso National Laboratory-LNGS, is located near the heart of the April 2009,  L’Aquila earthquake epicenter. Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi marked his 73rd birthday in L’Aquila yesterday. It’s Large Hadron Collider is a huge scientific undertaking that collides tiny fragments of matter head on to unravel the fundamental laws of nature.  Could the power density have shifted off course and fundamentally caused these  earthquakes? 

In  2008, CERN spins up the world’s largest atom smasher over in Switzerland, and we get four magnitude 6+ earthquakes within 24 hours. http://www.worldwide-disasters.com/?p=366

  • Southern Iran1100 GMT, 10 Sept – Magnitude 6.1 (BBC News | USGS)
  • Mid-Atlantic ridge1308 GMT, 10 Sept – Magnitude 6.6 (USGS)
  • Indonesian Moluccas islands0002 GMT, 11 Sept – Magnitude 6.6 (BBC News | USGS)
  • Hokkaido, Japan0021 GMT, 11 Sept – Magnitude 6.9 (BBC News | USGS)

The end this day will tell how many more earthquakes occur.

Referring to the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty,  “Major nuclear powers, including the United States, have observed moratoriums on testing since the 1990s, but India, Pakistan and North Korea all have tested bombs since the treaty was negotiated and opened for signatures in 1996.  The treaty has been signed by 181 countries and ratified by 149, but it cannot take effect until it is ratified by nine key holdouts — the U.S., China, North Korea, Iran, Israel, India, Pakistan, Indonesia and Egypt.”  http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5hGEa5e_fQbqd78In1-kT2aooCuvQD9AQ5V9O2  Was someone testing in the area?

Not far from the Samoa Island Region lies the Marshall Islands,  the site of the Pacific Proving Grounds where the U.S. tested 66 nuclear weapons including the largest nuclear test the US ever conducted- Castle Bravo yielding 15 megatons. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Castle_Bravo In terms of TNT tonnage equivalence, Castle Bravo was about 1,200 times more powerful than the atomic bombs which were Atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki during WWII.  

The Marshall islands today, continues to primarily function as a test facility for U.S. missile defense and space research programs. The Reagan Test Site is under the command of the US Army Kwajalein Atoll, or USAKA.   http://www.smdc.army.mil/RTS.html Ronald Reagan Ballistic Missile Defense Test Site (RTS)  provides a Major Range Test Facility Base (MRTFB) activity on Kwajalein Atoll & Wake Island to support testing of theatre and ballistic missiles and interceptors.

Rather an important job with North Korea and Iran jabbing the world with missile tests and the threat of nuclear attack.

Just for target practice- from Reuters  earlier this year http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090629/ap_on_re_us/us_missile_test The Air Force successfully launched an unarmed Minuteman 3 ICBM from a Vandenberg Air Force Base in California base, firing it to targets in the Pacific Ocean, it carried three unarmed re-entry vehicles that hit their targets near the Kwajalein Atoll, some 4,200 miles away. 

The Kwajalein Mission Control Center (KMCC) provides the central control, command, communications, and computing essential for directing the realtime data collection efforts of the RTS sensors.  A high bandwidth submarine fiber optic transmission system provides encrypted connectivity between KMCC and the entire range complex.  KMCC processes realtime state vector data from radar tracks using target complex processing algorithms to determine the best choice cueing data for each sensor.  With its exceptional computational capabilities, KMCC is able to distribute realtime data to land, sea, or airborne mobile sensors deployed to support testing at RTS, as well as to CONUS based testbeds and simulation centers via satellite link.           http://www.smdc.army.mil/KWAJ/KMCC.html     

Another, unincorporated territory of the United States is the North Pacific Ocean is The Johnston Atoll,  2.8 km²at 16°45′ N 169°30′ W, about one-third of the way from Hawaii to the Marshall Islands.  The area was a U.S. nuclear weapons test site and later the site of the Johnston Atoll Chemical Agent Disposal System (JACADS). The island is not open to the public so we have no idea what, if anything goes on there.  I’d suspect water damage being as the epicenter was pretty close at 172.093°W.   Additional nuclear test facilities can be found here http://www.gearthhacks.com/dlcat50/Nuclear-Facilities,-Test-Ranges.htm .

These are just a few of the theories on earthquakes from us, Wiki has compiled a longer list –http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_conspiracy_theories . 

It is no conspiracy or secret that the area plays an important role in maintaining the security of  The U.S. and that in fact, this will not be the last earthquake or tsunami to devastate the pacific region, asia or other areas of the world.   

Ironically, on Monday, The U.S. Geological Survey awarded grants to thirteen universities, are receiving a total of $5 million in stimulus money to upgrade earthquake monitoring networks.http://stlouis.bizjournals.com/stlouis/stories/2009/09/28/daily2.html

I am once again reminded that using the term “homeland”, outside of a historical discussion of Germany, has allowed authorities access to broad powers and it is just a creepy reminder of Gestapo tactics. 

The latest assessments from The Department of Homeland Security, DHS and sent out to local police departments in advance of Tea Party’s of April 15 outlines disturbing viewpoints that should have every American taking pause.  What sort of government do we have that calls on people with Conservative viewpoints to be right wing extremists?

The federal Homeland Security Department document entitled “Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Environment Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment” says “Right-wing extremists have capitalized on the election of the first African American president, and are focusing their efforts to recruit new members, mobilize existing supporters and broaden their scope and appeal through propaganda, but they have not yet turned to attack planning,” Read the entire report via https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/04/14/homeland-security-ids-tea-party-attendees-as-rightwing-threats/ 

From Northeast Intelligence Network http://homelandsecurityus.com/?p=2659 ” Listen to what I am saying,” stated the source during an interview with Doug Hagmann,  founder (NEIN).  “The Department of Homeland Security Intelligence Assessment that is receiving so much attention is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg, and the true patriotic citizens of this country are on the Titanic. This is what bothers me. But is goes far beyond that assessment. There have been very significant changes made over the last few years that redirect the focus and assets of the intelligence community internally. These changes have greatly accelerated under this administration, and the threats have been redefined to include those who used to be patriots. It’s not only chilling but absolutely insulting to God-fearing Americans.”

Back up a few weeks ago and we have, “A single-page confidential directive issued by the FBI headquarters in Washington, DC…was sent to each of the 56 field offices located across the United States on or about March 23, 2009, instructing the Special Agents in Charge of those offices to verify the date, time and location of each TEA Party within their region and supply that information to FBI headquarters in Washington.” http://maggiesnotebook.blogspot.com/2009/04/fbi-leak-tea-party-spies-canada-report.html 

As in a previous post at https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2008/11/16/defending-borders-and-privacy-laws-under-obama/ The Department of Homeland Security “claims that data gathered for law enforcement purposes will be “in compliance with privacy and civil liberties laws and policies of the United States,” the GAO found that “by broadly sharing information with non-federal users, who are not bound by the Privacy Act, personal information could be at risk of being used in ways not specified when it was originally collected.” Considering that some 70% of U.S. intelligence assets are employees of private security and defense contractors, GAO is a civil liberties disaster waiting to happen.” http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=viewArticle&code=BUR20081109&articleId=10864

Heading the Department of Homeland Security, DHS is Janet Napolitano the former Governor of Arizona, and a former US Attorney under Janet Reno in the Clinton Administration.  http://www.augustreview.com/obama_administration.pdf has her listed as a member of the CFR- the Council on Foreign Relations which advocates internationalism.  No doubt none of us want another WACO  or 911, ever- but releasing by releasing these documents and saying that illegal immigration is not a crime, plus that the 9/11 terrorists had entered the country from Canada (sourced at http://www.newsmax.com/insidecover/napolitano_illegals_crime/2009/04/22/205948.html ) when in reality they flew into this country on documents issued by the State Department -is a reminder of why she is not qualified to hold this appointed position.  She is supposed to be serving to protect our country, not decimate it with ignorance.  Now people are asking for her resignation.

“Singling out political opponents for working against the ruling party is precisely the tactic of every tyrannical government from Red China to Venezuela,” Texas Rep. John Carter told Politico. He organized an hour of floor speeches Wednesday night to call for Napolitano’s ouster. “The first step in the process is creating unfounded public suspicion of political opponents, followed by arresting and jailing any who continue speaking against the regime.”

It isn’t civil disobedience that motivates Republicans, Democrats, Conservatives, Libertarians or Independents to take a stand against the policies of the Obama Administration, it is the objection of where this country is headed. 

Does any of this proves that Obama is behind the “right wing radicals” memo out of Homeland Security?  Obama did appoint her.  One thing it proves is that the balance of privacy is shifting and even though Tax Day has ended, we must be diligent that the War the DHS is waging does not come at the cost of personal freedom and privacy for law abiding, decent Americans.
